if the

enemy can keep you

crying he can keep you from

seeing what’s


coming ha gu said I know what you’re

thinking I’m thinking it too this is

nothing compared to

that I saw pictures of Solomon’s Temple

on Pinterest it was

expensive about know it was the same

place Solomon’s temp W but what made the

same stuff cuz God is reforming

it he’s reforming it wow he’s reforming

it he’s reforming your life he’s shaping

it like a Potter in the clay he’s

reforming it that’s what it is is his

hands not the

devil’s when we write

songs they always the worse they suck

when we start them the better they get

when we finish

them but then we take it home and we

have the

demo which is like the rough version and

there’s this thing called

demoitis and it’s when you listen to the

first version so much that you start

thinking it’s perfect but it really

needs a lot of

work the devil has some of y’all in

demoitis you thought the first

version was the only version

of who you are of what you do of what

your gifts

are but the Lord

said I can’t make it better if you keep


back stop

crying I know it sounds insensitive

Pastor Steve Jesus wept didn’t you see

that yeah I’m the one who told you about

that but that’s not all he

did look at John chapter

11 verse

38 it says after Jesus cried which is

important you know trauma is trauma is

real 70 years in Babylon will make you

cry it’ll make you forget to

sing when you find out what your kids’s

been doing behind your back it’ll make


cry when you and your husband don’t even

look at each other except when you’re

around people so you can fake it real


it’ll make you cry

alone God doesn’t correct the sisters

but I’m glad he didn’t stop there and

you can’t either okay because in verse

38 John 11:38 it says not Jesus cried

but Jesus once more deeply moved

came so he

cried and then he

came stop

crying it’s com

coming I don’t want the old Temple to

keep me from seeing



seriously you know how it said in the

verse in Hagi that from the day I

brought you out of Egypt till now did

you catch that really small thing in

verse five I didn’t make a big deal out

of it but it is a big

deal because they thought that Pharaoh

had to let them go for them to leave

Egypt that wasn’t their biggest problem

their biggest problem was letting go of

Moses because see Moses gave them the

law and they were so committed to that

that when Jesus came who is the true

image of God to show them what God is

really like not to break the law but to

fulfill it when Jesus came they could

not recognize

better because they were stuck in

before so while we’re fighting like hey

Pharaoh let me go hey I let me go hey

Temptation let me go God’s like the

thing that you’re holding on to is the


glory I don’t know who it is if it’s

three people it’s we it’s saying you got

to let go of former

glory to receive present

help now that means a lot of

things it means that the same Jesus who

cried at the gate came to the tomb it

didn’t stop him from doing what he came

to do cuz he didn’t come just to cry or

give him a Hallmark card he didn’t just

bake them a roast so they could eat it

three days later he came to show them

who he

was he came to reinvent their concept of

God and to switch their template of

truth that not only am I a Healer I am

Resurrection he came to prefigure what

he would do he

came so he cried everybody say he cried

he cried come on don’t tap out on me

this is the best part of the sermon I

know y’all aren’t going to listen to a

sermon about the glory of the ladh house

and skip the end of the sermon this is

the part I wanted to preach us to

because he cried and you’ve been crying

and you have a Christ who cries so

that’s fine he will cry with you but

then you have a Christ who after he

stopped crying he came to the tomb so

he’s coming to the tomb he’s coming to

the part that’s buried he is coming to

the park that’s broken he’s coming to

the park that’s dead he’s coming to the

park that stinks he’s coming to the park

that’s rotten he’s coming to the park

that’s given up on he cried he came but

that’s not the good part the good part

is verse 43 put verse 43 on the screen

quickly quickly quickly quickly and when

Jesus has said this he called so he

cried he

came and then he called in a loud voice

and I hear that voice calling today

through the halls of history from the

pages of Hagi to this very moment in the

house of God

Lazarus come

forth come

forth he’s speaking to your joy he’s

speaking to your peace he’s speaking to

your strategy he’s speaking to your

spirit come


so you cried a while it’s all right I am

convinced that the sufferings of this

present time are not worth comparing to

the glory that will be

revealed so did you catch that whole

sermon he

cried he

came he

called you got to call some things out


yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah they’re

not going to come just

automatically you can cry over it as

long as you

want but I believe that something deeper

is calling from the inside wow what the

prophet told the people

was you got to do the

work you got to do the

work is wishing for something that you

don’t have keeping you from working with

what you do


have I don’t know maybe it’s just me but

I needed this

word that the Lord

said you can

cry but eventually you got to come and

you got to call those things that be not

as though they

are beneath your feelings

and the promise is it’s a covenant not a

commitment commitments can be

broken yeah covenants

cannot especially when one of the

parties is the one who cannot

lie so it’s a lot of

pain you know when they laid the

foundation Ezra showed us

something give me Ezra 3:10 when they

got that Temple started and I think I’m

going to pick this up next week for real

y’all cuz y’all got one

point it’s your fault you were shouting

and and and receiving and glorifying God

I didn’t come to get through my

points I came to give you this word stop

crying it’s

coming it’s

coming cuz the Bible says in Ezra

3 that when the builders laid the

foundation of the second temple the

priests and their vestments with their

Trumpets the Levites the sons of Asaf

with their symbols took their places to

praise the Lord like David told him to

with praise and thanksgiving they sang

to the Lord he is good his love toward

Israel ures forever probably better

Melody than that but that was the words

they saying he is good his love for

Israel endureth forever and all the

people I want y’all to do what the text

says stand up gave a great



Shout a great shout of praise to the

Lord because the foundation of the house

of the Lord was laid now that’s where

I’m going to pick up next week because

some of us are comparing our foundation

to somebody else’s Finish

Line and that’s why we’re

discouraged and next week if you will

give me the opportunity and God gives me

the strength I’m going to preach about

how to shout about


I’m going teach you I’mma teach you how

I’m I’m going to teach you how to do a

dance when the scale drops one

pound I’m going to teach you how to

dance on the scale and I’m going to

teach you how to do it cuz when you lose

a pound you don’t celebrate by eating a

cookie when you lose a pound you buy



shoes but if you’re getting out of

debt you don’t go buy shoes you eat

cookies so I’m going to teach you about

how to shout over little stuff next week

week and just redistribute the balance

of it so you can keep your progress

going oh I love y’all we’re going to do

it next week but but I got to show you

this because this is this is really what

started me to teach this message they

were shouting about what God was doing

the new thing wow we’re going to have a

temple I’ve heard about this one

generation was saying but it’s not like

the old one and watch what the Bible

says in verse 12 but many of the older

priests and the Levites and the family

heads the ones who should have been

leading the ones who should have been

known that God is with us and we can’t

fail he’s going to do a new thing it’s

who he is is what he does he’s reforming

us but when they

saw the

foundation they had seen the former

Temple they had the old

template this is what it has to look

like this is what I thought marriage

would be

this is the city I thought I would live


Forever This is How old I thought my mom

would be when she died this is how I

thought it would be when they saw the

temple it didn’t match their template

and watch what happened they

wept they

wept and and and the sounds of

Celebration the shouts of Joy While

others were

shouting one generation is

weeping over what it was

and one generation is shouting over what

it will be when God gets done with


it what I want to

know what I want to know is you going to


weeping or start

working because you have forgotten who

you are working with the Lord Almighty

is in you it’s by his spirit that you’re

building you are not building this by

yourself and you’re not going to build

it like

before he is able to do exceeding

abundantly above all you ask above every

template he transcends


so within the same body you got shouts

of joy and

weeping which one will you listen


which one will you

obey he who will begin a good work in

you will be faithful to complete

it but you got to be strong and do the

work well you’re not working on your own

it is God that works in you to Will and

to do according to his good

pleasure so maybe God brought you here

to remind you what you’re working

with huh that there is a

remnant that God has left everything in

your life that he intends to use in this
