Yes, this is a re-post. However, this is a proper “release” in 720p with full transcripts.
This video contains three message/preaching segments from Hillsong’s Faith+Hope+Love DVD (credits to Hillsong for the content). I used AViSynth scripting and tools with MeGUI to produce this mash-up. See the bottom of this description for links to some educational files used in putting together and encoding this video.
Woman: “If speak in tongues of man and angels, but have not love, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.”
Man 1: “And if I have prophetic powers, and understand secret truths or mysteries, and possess all knowledge, and if I have faith so that I can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.”
Man 2: “And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”
Man 1: “Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud.”
Man 2: “Love is not self-seeking. It’s not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.”
Woman: “It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
Man 2: “When I was a child, I talked like a child. I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. But when I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. These three things remain:”
Man 1: “FAITH”
Man 2: “and LOVE.”
Man 1: “The greatest of these is LOVE.”
I’m going to read to you from Psalm 103, and this is the Psalm of David. I love listening to the Psalms of David, the man that God called very very close to His own heart. It’s entitled The Lord’s Wonderful Love, and he writes from that perspective as his worship and praise as a response to the great love of God. And he says, “With all my heart I praise the Lord, and with all that I am I praise His holy name. And with all my of heart I praise the Lord. I will never forget how kind He has been. The Lord forgives us our sins, and heals us when we are sick, and protects us from death. His kindness and love are a crown on our heads, and each day that we live He provides for our needs and gives us strength of a young eagle. For all who are ill-treated the Lord brings justice. He taught His law to Moses and showed all of Israel what He could do. For the Lord is merciful; He is kind, He is patient, and His love never fails. The Lord won’t always be angry and point out our sins and He doesn’t punish us as our sins deserve. For how great is God’s love for all who worship Him? Greater than the distance between Heaven and Earth. How far has the Lord taken our sins from us? Further than the distance from the East to the West.” So how great is God’s love for all? Amen church.
..in which we declare our worship and praise to Yahweh. And I want you to engage in understanding. I want you to understand what Yahweh means to us, here, tonight. There are at least 270 names for God in the Bible. He is so glorious, so enormous, and every one of those names reveal some facet about His life and His character. One commonly used name is ‘El’, or ‘Elohim’. We find that in El Shaddai — God Almighty. We find it in Bethel — the house of God. We find it in Emmanuel — God with us. But Yahweh is different. Yahweh is much more personal. It’s often translated LORD, and it’s used when God made humanity. It’s used when Abraham climbed Mt. Mariah, the place where eventually the temple was built and the area in which our Lord Jesus Christ died. It was used as He set up the mountain in order to worship God — the first time worship is used, the word ‘worship’. And God provides a sacrifice and reveals Himself as Yahweh. We often think of it as Jehovah. That is the Latin name for Yahweh. We find it in words like ‘hallelujah’ which means to ‘celebrate God, our Lord’.
But the revelation reaches its culmination in Exodus 3 when God reveals Himself to His people. And He says, “I AM that I AM”. He is the eternal self-existing one. “I will be what I will be.” He was declaring His covenant and His reality to His people. He says in Exodus 6, “Up until this moment you have not really understood. I revealed myself to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty — El Shaddai. But now I am revealing myself to you as your covenant-keeping God”. A God who is what you need Him to be in your life situation. And then throughout the scriptures that name Jehovah — Yahweh — is revealed. He is Jehovah Csidkenu, the Lord our righteousness. He is Jehovah Makaidesh, the Lord our holiness. Jehovah Shalom, the Lord our peace. Jehovah Ra’ah, the Lord our shepherd. Jehovah Shamah, the Lord who is there. He is our covenant-keeping God, the Lord of His people. He is Jehovah Jirah, the Lord our provider.
And then, Jesus Christ comes to Earth. The name ‘Jesus’ means savior. The name ‘Christ’ means anointed one. He was the messiah for whom the world waited. But He wasn’t just Jesus Christ; He was the LORD Jesus Christ. And in John 8 when they were asking Him where he had come from, He said this: “Before Abraham was, I AM.” He was declaring to them that He was Jehovah God. No wonder they took up stones to kill Him because He was proclaiming he was the covenant-keeping God of His people, and tonight He is the Lord who heals you. He is Jehovah Ra’affa. He is the Lord who is here. He is the Lord your provider. And I want you right around this auditorium to raise your hands to Heaven because He is Yahweh, He is here, He is the LORD Jesus Christ, and He wants to reveal Himself to you as your Lord, as your champion, as your shepherd. Let’s raise our voice and raise our hands and worship Him.
