if you have your Bibles open them with

me to the book of Hebrews the 12th

chapter Hebrews chapter 12 is where I

want to go this morning let’s go down to

verse 27 of Hebrews chapter

12 now this yet once more indicates the

removal of those things that are being

shaken as of things that are made that

the things which cannot be shaken May

remain therefore since we are receiving


kingdom which cannot be

shaken let us have Grace by which we may

serve God acceptably with reverence and


fear I’m so thankful today that what

he’s saying in the first verse is

everything this man made and

temporary it’s being shaken we’re living

in that time we don’t know what the next

seven months are going to bring I I feel

an uneasiness just a little bit what is

coming we got Wars all over the world we

got things happening

internally everything that can be shaken

is being

shaken but we have received a


now if you haven’t you can’t shout on

that part but if you have received a

kingdom that cannot be shaken and my

family is in that

Kingdom my marriage is in that

Kingdom my life is in that Kingdom and

it does not mean that we’re immune from

trouble and storms and difficulties and

adversities but whatever life brings I

have received a kingdom a structure a

foundation that cannot be

shaken I want to preach today on how to


unshakable because you see the

foundation that we build our life on

matters that’s why in Matthew 7 it talks

about there are only two foundations

that people build their homes and their

lives on he talks about building your

home on the

Rock and he said and when the rain

descended and the floods came and the

winds blew and beat on that house it

didn’t fall for it was founded it was

structured on the

Rock but to everyone of these sayings of

mine who hears it and they don’t do them

they’re like a fool who builds their

house on Sand and the rain descended the

floods came notice they go through the


thing we’re not immune we we don’t we

don’t get a get out of free get out of

jail free get out of pain free get out

of suffering free

card because we’re Christians we’re

going to all go through it in life but

the only difference between the two is

what they’re building their lives on one

is sand and one is The Rock and it said

that the one on Sand fail and it was a

great fall the other one stood through

the extreme storm when you walk into a

room like this in any of our campuses or


home you you seldom think of structure

you seldom think of foundation you it

really doesn’t matter to you you don’t

care about what’s up under the cement

the robar rubar the the the I’m not a

builder obviously but you don’t think

about all that stuff even this building

there’s steel and stuff and all kinds of

things that you can’t see it’s the

structure of the building that makes it

stand the amazing thing about storm

shelters extreme storm

shelters is when they’re giving the way

that they have to be

constructed they’re told not to use air


guns I thought that was interesting

that when you’re building a hurricane

shelter a shelter that must absolutely

guarantee that it’s going to be there

it’ll be there through terrible storms

and Hell force

winds there’s nothing wrong with an air

nail gun a nail gun there’s nothing

wrong with it pop pop it’s up

quick I think it’s a Brilliant Invention

and that’s good if you

want um if you want something for uh 10

years 20 years 30 years it might last 50

years with a nail gun po but if you’re

going to build something that’s going to

endure the most extreme worst

storms you got to go not with the new

modern tools that run on

batteries but you got to get the old

hammer and nail

out it’s pretty

amazing the old method is the one that

you want to trust when the storm comes

when all hell is breaking loose I don’t

need to know that my whole life is built

on just a pop pop pop of a little bit of

religion but I need that old hammer and

that nail and that

cross I need something that will Outlast


storm if you’re just building a


Church pop pop pop the latest greatest

whatever but Free Chapel is not a


church I am not a Cutting Edge

preacher and I’m not up here trying to

build a fly by driveby

church I still believe the church is

essential I still believe that without


church the nation Goes to Hell I still

believe without the church the family

disintegrates I still believe without

the church the Gates of Hell will

prevail and if you’re just building a

temporary church and we’ve seen them pop

pop pop pop use the air gun and it’ll be

fine and it’ll last for a little while

and then like the Tower of Babel it’ll

fall but we’re not interested in

building that kind of


if you’re going to build a safe

structure that will withstand the

storm you don’t need new

gadgets you don’t need new

methods you need a hammer and you need a

nail you

need something that you know will

withstand the

storm I’m not Building a

garage I can’t just have pop pop pop

religion just come on Sunday pop and

that’s it and I’m good but it’s the

hammer in the nail because the carpenter

son said I will build my church in


16 I will build my church and I’m not

going to use a nail

gun I God Almighty am going to come in a


suit to planet Earth Bible said Jesus

thought it not robbery to be equal with

God in other words and then it said all

of the godhead was in

him all of God put on an earth suit and

for 30 years he did not preach a sermon

he created the universe he hung the

world on nothing he spoke the world into

existence created man but now now he’s

on planet Earth in skin and Flesh and

Blood Jesus was

100% the out the flesh part of Jesus was

100% man the spirit part was 100%

God and for 30 years he doesn’t heal he

doesn’t do anything why because it’s not

a pop pop pop nail gun deal he’s


and for three and a half years he goes

and then he says I’m going to build me a

church and the devil didn’t know that

the thing that he was going to use was a

hammer three nails and two beans called

across and he said that will become the

structure that if you build your life on

if you flesh out your life as long as

the foundation and the structure of your

life is that cross and that hammer and

those three Rusty Nails and the blood

that I shed I promise you it’s a storm

shelter that will withstand anything

hell can bring against you and your

family the Bible put it like this in

Isaiah no weapon formed against you

shall prosper I want you to clap your

hands if you believe in the foundation

that is


I want to

hear today the words of Jesus I will

build my church The Gates of Hell will

not Prevail the church is not these

buildings the church is you the church

is you and your marriage the church is

you and your family the church is your

children and your grandchildren I will

build my church with a hammer and a nail

the hammer and nails sometimes you miss

and it’s bloody and it’s and it’s

hurtful and it’s painful and you’re

suffering and you’re going through long

days and long nights and it’s and it’s

just exhausting but when God doesn’t

give you the quick pop poop nail gun

answer know that he’s building a

structure in your family for Generations

this isn’t a quick throw up garage this

is a generational blessing and every

time you open up this book you’re using

the hammer and the nail and every time

you come to church it’s not just a pop

pop but this is what we do this is who

we are this is what family is supposed

to do is bring your family and worship

you are building an eternal

house Noah was commanded my by God to

build an ark for the saving of his

family the text

said and it was not a nail air

gun it was a hammer and nail

approach and it took him 120 years can

you imagine the people who were making

fun of him can you imagine the people

who were saying how stupid why do y’all

still go to church why do you still pray

why do you still fast why do you still

read the Bible I’m telling you we’re

living in that time where the the the

little nail gun religion of just go to

church on Easter and go to church and

love God in your own way and do your own

thing but there’s something to the old

method of the hammer and the nail and

just saying we’re going we’re going and

and and especially if you want a house

that’s going to endure I cannot promise

you you won’t go through stuff I cannot

promise you your kids won’t go through

stuff I cannot promise you your marriage

won’t go through stuff I can promise you

that if you’re building it on the right

structure and Foundation hell can hit

you with its best shot the old wolf the

devil can huff and puff but he will not

blow your house down because Jesus

himself the carpenter son said the gates

of hell it’s a guarantee your family and

your home will still be standing turn to

somebody and say you’ve got the

guarantee that’s a big

deal I love that when Noah built it got

his family on inside of it everybody was

mocking them and making fun but you know

the storm came and when the storm

came they went in a minority but they

came out a

majority and the only thing the storm

did was get rid of their

critics I’m telling you that we have a

structure folks

I can’t even promise you the government

I can’t even promise you the nation is

going to be remaining a 100 years from

now but should the Lord T his coming the

church that he is building will be alive

it’s alive in China it’s alive in

Ukraine it’s alive in Russia it’s alive

all over the world they can’t snuff it

out because it’s built to


all of the adjustments the world wants

us to

make they’re messing with the structure

of the

family God created them male and

female and when you tell eight years

olds now are you sure you want to be a

female even though you’re a biological

female you can

choose and if you don’t want to be we

can get some

surgery you’re messing with the

structure the of the family and even


itself you’re messing with the structure

this is dangerous these are perilous


times and if you don’t agree with it and

it goes against the core values of who

you are and what you believe you’re

somehow a bigot no I’m a person of Faith

who’s building my family upon the word

of God the rock solid

foundation he created them male and

female and I’m sorry but the marriage

that is built on the Rock is the

marriage between a man and a woman the

the marriage that is built on the Rock

is the marriage that honors God and says

I believe in Freedom live like you want

to live but ask for me in my

house we will serve the Lord I

cannot be silent about that it’s the

structure anything else is sinking sand

come on now my God we cannot just sit

back and see the Ten Commandments

maltt Thou shalt not kill the Bible said

if the foundations are destroyed what

will a nation and a church do and the

people of God do if the

foundations the

foundations the are the foundations the

structure we’re removing that we’re


uh Thou shalt not steal but if you want

to go in and take what you

want because life’s not fair that gives

you a right Thou shalt not steal Thou

shalt not kill Thou shalt not commit

adultery Thou shalt not sleep with your

girlfriend your

boyfriend Thou shalt not

lie Thou shalt honor thy father and thy

mother Thou shalt have no other gods


me well we don’t need to be so absolute

yes we do Nei neither is there any other

name given whereby men can be saved but

the name of Jesus I don’t know what to

tell you that’s that’s the foundation

you cannot mess with the structure if

you mess with the structure and and and

what is wrong with the church is that

we’re allowing our foundations and our

structures and we’re and we’re so afraid

that that we’re going to be penalized in

the workplace or wherever that we’re not

speaking up but as Christians we’re in a

time where we have to say

I’m G to stick with the sure

Foundation when you start dismantling


structure even of the

Constitution the structure of the

Supreme Court the structure of Justice

the structure it’s going to be filled

with abuses and but it’s the structure

that makes this nation

great it was built by people who came

and they were not Flawless they had

terrible flaws but they came saying we

want one

nation under

God on your money in God we trust it

says that now if you want to move that

structure out get ready for a collapse

of the economy because in God we

trust oh God help me to preach and I I

picked the wrong sermon to preach for

the first time in a new church but so be

it I’m tired of I’m tired of

sugarcoating it and I’m tired of being

quiet nope this book is right this book

is on this book is Real This Book Is

Alive culture should not change the

church culture should not change the

Christian love everybody but stand for

what you


I want to ask you because the problem

is you don’t

know the sad reality is you will not

know when you gave up too much until

it’s too late and the storm is upon

you Samson made a Nazarite vow that he

would not drink

wine it was his personal conviction it

was a vow he made to to God and God said

that’s the deal I’ll honor I won’t drink

wine I won’t touch dead

things I won’t cut my

hair and that’s my vow to you of

consecration the next thing you know

he’s drinking a little

wine he’s touching dead things there’s a

line the slain and he’s reaching down

getting honey out of it touching dead

things he’s sleeping with his girlfriend

whoops and I can see him going back in

the gym I can still press

600 you won’t

know when your powers left

you once you start messing with the

structure of your relationship and

convictions with

god oh come on here now once you keep on

comp a little here a little there a

little here a little there and then one

day the fo you don’t know Samson how

weak you become because it can be

deceiving but suddenly the phelicity and

he wished not he shook himself like he

did other times but it wasn’t there C he

had messed with the structure so

much that the spirit had

left I’m simply trying to preach to you

today that the structure really matters

the foundation matters how much music

filthy music can you listen to before it

affects the structure of who you are how

much filthy pornography can you look

at so how long can you mess and Dabble

with stuff how long can you run with the

wrong friends you still can come to

church and feel God’s presence and you

still I’m not questioning your

relationship with God but what I am

questioning is how long can you sustain

it as you make more and more and more

structural changes about who you are in

the convictions of what you were raised

in that you know are right but somehow

I’ll shift this and change this and

change this and before you know it

you’re not the person you used to

be I tell you I that that fear I fear I

that’s the fear of the Lord we need the

fear of the Lord back in the church we

need to we need to understand that

anybody can fall but unto him who is

able to keep us from falling if we stay

connected to the SK skeleton which is

Jesus the flesh May Fail but it’ll

always get back

up because the structure and Foundation


solid I don’t believe it’s by chance

that you watch today’s message God has

planned for you to hear his word today

he’s so loving he’s so merciful he’s so

good I don’t know what you’ve heard

about about God but he loves you and

there’s nothing more important in this

moment right now than for you to receive

Jesus Christ as your lord and savior and

I’m going to pray for you and I want you

to pray he’s ready to do it just pray

this prayer say Jesus I receive you as

my Lord and as my savior heal my life

here’s the broken pieces this is all I

have left but the miracle in what’s left

not in what I’ve lost and I receive your

help your grace your peace your

forgiveness your healing in the mighty

name of Jesus say that name in the

mighty name of

Jesus Amen I want you to go on the

website and let us know what God has

done or pick up the phone dial the

number that’s on the screen we would

love to pray with you before I go I want

to take a moment to say thank you to

every one of you who are supporting this

Ministry and especially I want to thank

you for the unwavering support to the

nation of Israel during this time of

horrific War we ask our friends and our

partners in ESO what can we do for you

in this time of emergency and so much

sorrow and Brokenness and pain what do

you need during this time of war and

they were very clear in their requests

that’s why we’re building the jfmm eso

resilience Center it will provide

treatment for PTSD for all of the men

and the women and the children that have

experiened horrific attacks and rapes

and things that we can’t even imagine I

saw the actual footage at the Israeli

Embassy in Washington DC as it was

happening the actual footage of Hamas

they were so proud of pouring gasoline

on babies and children I’ve never seen

things that human eyes should never see

I’ll never forget it and even worse than

what I’m describing and so the PTSD the

mental condition of the whole

Community is uh is is marred and and we

know that God can bring peace to the

darkest darkest situations will you help

us I believe if you will God will bless

you if you’ll consider giving a special

gift I know the Lord I’m going to tell

you what to do pray about it and you’ll

hear from him he’ll lay whatever he

tells you to do do it it’ll be enough

thank you and please continue to pray

for the nation of


Israel I’m standing here in the Zach’s

house the Zach Family House in kibutz

suim the first community that we

introduce you to on October 7 this

entire family

perished when we walked after the

atrocities of October 7 into this house

we saw the father lying here behind me

on the floor with a knife in his hand

and in the shelter behind me the mother

in bed hugging her son both dead and

both burned

alive but just like this Instinct of a

family to protect each other to save

each other this is what we feel with you

Pastor Jensen Franklin and your entire

congregation it was an instinct a family

instinct to come and stand with us and

to remind us that we are not alone you

are responding immediately because you

know us you know us already for many

years before and you committed to build

a resilience Center that will give us

therapy for our communities to heal

together in these atrocities of October

7 we know that we will rebuild

again it will be painful and hard but we

know that with you we can make it happen
