Unless Jesus Christ have the final say so. Lord, you will not Dr. Tony Evans as if exercising godly authority doesn't begin by submitting to the consequences can destroy your family if you covered man on all the folk and the like celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the Trinity connecting men with the leadership power is given requires a clear understanding of who we are and who we aren't. Dr. Evans discusses both as he takes us to Exodus chapter 34 let's join a man's male who is tied to the biology with which he was born that establishes his male identity, then that male becomes a boy boy who is tied to dependency and immaturity. So we got a couple of we got mail at strictly biological identity. You've got boy who would which is dependency and immaturity. But the goal of male hood is man the Bible manhood is defined as responsibility under God. That is from God's point of view. A male has not fully alive to be a man until the operating under the rule of God and relationship to God. So the question is which will you with just male hood immaturity and responsibility.

Boyhood regard WA but then there is biblical corporate conferences again three men's conferences we doesn't want three times a year all the males in Israel are to come before the Lord their God. Now why did God call this meeting. Why was this meeting. Three men's conferences every year called by God to show you something. In chapter 34. He says in verse 10 then God said, behold, I'm going to make a covenant. Verse 14, for you shall not worship any other God for the Lord, whose name is jealous is a jealous God. Otherwise, you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land.

Verse 27 then the Lord said to Moses, write down these words flowing in accordance with these words, I have made a covenant with you and with Israel Minuteman verse 28 and he wrote on the tablets the words of the company covenant needs a divinely created bond. It was an officially established relationship between God and his people.

A synonym for the word covenant is covering a covenant covers. As I defined it before.

It's like having an umbrella in the rain, the umbrella covers you. Doug stop her from raining.

It just stops it from reading on you because you are covered.

Now you can have an umbrella, but not be under it while you are in the covenant.

If you are not under the covenant.

You go on covered so we have a generation the day on covered men, that they go to church. They may be Christian, but then I covered and if you are covered man that means is raining on all the folk in your life to because you uncover that getting wet. God called all men to covenant with them because they were to cover not only their own lives and the whole family. But in this context the whole nation so the class still on the floor was to bring all men in alignment with the company so that they would be covered by God, so that that which they all responsible for in the covenant would be covered to sell the positioning of a man underneath God's covenantal covering would determine the well-being of the whole nation. So if you were the devil. Your major goal is to get rid of men because of you. Get rid of men you can keep everybody else uncover everybody else is on, the favor of God will be diminished or perhaps absent altogether, the issue of the covenant is alignment operating underneath its governments, I think I shared a year ago my garage door wouldn't open a portion of pushing a portion of trying to lift it but is too heavy. Things are not working the rope that releases it wasn't was broken right so if a things without working. I couldn't make things work. What because I wasn't trying I was pushing a button. I was trying to lift it up but it was too heavy so it wasn't working.

I wanted to work I needed it to work but it wasn't working. No matter how I try. I called the garage guy and I said look, my cause of the garage.

I got a get out on stock.

What do I do can you come over and deliver me so I called on him for deliverance.

I did everything I need to do to be delivered, but I was still stuck in my garage. He told me to go over to the garage door. I went over to the garage door. He said look down on your writing on your left. I did he said you see those two square canisters. I said yes. He said which way are they facing I said what one is facing horizontally toward the other. The other is facing vertically toward the back door. He said your problem is an alignment problem.

He says they're not aligned properly. He says they are designed to face one another so they can pick up the signal but one is facing this way be obvious facing that way so that not community. He said it will simply go down and turn the one on the left to face the one on the right you'll find the power that you're looking for. When I change the alignment to canister the line the one another, then pushed the button while that I didn't know I possessed what I needed was to get in alignment and when I got things in alignment, children, and I was delivered from incarceration in my garage see a lot of mental pushing buttons, cussing and fussing and nothing open white not change in the children not change in the career, not change it with a portion all about God and saying I wait for you to get in alignment because if you will get in alignment under me.

You'll see some, that you didn't know you had.

But because you're out of alignment and not operating in relationship under my divine rule all your buttons don't work when the tires wear unevenly in your car and your will is shaken. That means you need in alignment. If your life is shaken and you worn out never got around you is worn out to be in alignment, so God would call all the men of Israel to three conferences a year to get him back in alignment to get him functioning underneath God's covenantal covering now to understand this further, we want to study some Hebrew for their free Hebrew names for God in these two verses different names but all referring to God. You see the spelling L small old small are a small D that is the name I don't know why you see the name of God GOP that is the name Elohim that you see in verse 24. LORD Lord capitalize that's the name Yahweh or Jehovah three different names. So God is the speaker in the conference and he gives three different sermons using his three different names because it was all the males to know all three names look at these three names so we can understand what the men's conference was about, because that explains what it means to operate under the rule of God one name GLD is Elohim Elohim is God's creation name in the beginning God Elohim created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 116 Al the cingulate before you get Elohim the plural L means, Elohim of God's majestic name of creation God spoke and it was manifested.

Elohim is God's power name. When a man is not operating under the rule of God.

He limited to his problem when he is operating on the rule of Elohim now, so has got a strip strip because these operating under the strong second name LORD is Yahweh or the valves and it is Jehovah Jehovah is God's sovereign relational me in Genesis chapter 1 you only see the name Elohim. God is God, the data God but beginning in chapter 2 verse four of Genesis. You see, the Lord God, the Lord God, the Lord God is no longer Elohim only. It is now Yahweh or Jehovah Elohim because that is God's relational me see a lot of men one GLD who don't want nobody. They want God without a relationship what God wants you to know you don't get GLD if you do not want to do except I will be. That is, you must be pursuing a relationship with him, not just looking for power from Dr. Evans will come back in a moment to talk about how we can develop such a close relationship with God will give us a playbook instead of a rulebook first so I want to tell you about Tony's brand-new study book kingdom men rising this just-released title empowers men to be strong, courageous, loving leaders at home and at work at church and in the community you learn how to reject society is warped image of manhood and replace it with the biblical blueprint God had in mind when he created you.

Once again that's Tony or reach out to our resource Center at 1-800-800-3222 anytime of the day or night. That's 1-800-800-3222.

I repeat that information for you right after part two of today's lesson here is Dr. Evans. God doesn't want us as men coming to him to see what we can get from he wants us coming here because we want him because he won him he doesn't mind us getting things from your pursuing stuff from God but not a God who had the stuff that becomes an illegitimate person of God because you want the person without the relationship.

The third word is L small, small, small D, that's why I will not be the boss man.

I am the one who sets the governing guidelines for your decision and he says I want all three relationships with you. I want to be a problem. I want to be in relationship and I want to have the right to overrule first Corinthians 11 verse three says God the father is over, Christ, and then it says and every man is under Christ. So if you name the name of Jesus Christ. If you think that you are a Christian. That means that you ought to be operating under the Lordship of Jesus Christ which means Jesus Christ has the final say so. Although your life in every area and then it says a woman comes underneath the main but a woman is supposed to only come on then leave a man whose cover so that she too is covered in so he called all the men to be under the covenant or under the covering a man self definition is intrinsically tied to his spiritual subordination say that again a man's self-definition is intrinsically tied to his spiritual subordination.

So if there is no spiritual subordination to the rule of God over a man's life definition of his manhood is flawed. This is risky business. This is risky. This cacique when you call all at one time to the conference military that means commerce is taken a major dive that means nobody to protect homes is risky business.

God have the audacity to say take a bet on me take a bet on me, you want a Batman bet on me because even though I'm calling all men away from the nation to meet with the Lord that God at the very same time OBI is going beyond so all the men come to the conference and welcome to the conference and they sit near and God is God is on the stage he is doing pretty okay and all sermons, Elohim, Yahweh at what is he telling what is he telling the missionaries of Psalm chapter 25 versus 12 to 14. This is sweet.

What's this, who is the man who fears the Lord, he will instruct him in the way he should go here so will abide in prosperity and his descendents will inherit the land. What is the secret of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he will make them know his 50. He says if I could get the men to come underneath me, leave my my authority is God that what I'm going to do with those men is telling some secrets, tell them some secrets a secret secret is not secret is only for the people. Secret is not secret. It's just that person you want to hear it.

Only men under the covenant. Get secrets men were not on the covenant. Don't get secrets they don't get a private conversation about what God wants them to do next in their life with their problem with that career with them on with that they don't get secret so men not on the continent lived their lives in trial and error. We try to when Jesus Christ walked on the narrator exactly where it was supposed what it is about consuming God secrets his work in football you have any all 32 NFL teams have the same rulebook rules govern the game no matter where the game is being played all the rules apply to all the games and all the players on all the teams in every stadium every Sunday because this the NFL rulebook as you sit here this morning. I'm giving you the rulebook. I'm taking the Bible I'm seeking to explain it. Everybody's here in the same rules and the same guidelines. Erin got rulebook but every NFL team have their own playbook.

The playbook is not available to all the other teams. It's only available to the this team doesn't give that team there playbook because there playbook of the play uniquely related to Pantene. All teams have the rulebook. Each team has its private playbook. If you look at a football game really bad called the offense of coordinator calling him play but putting a covering over his mouth. If the sheet or its aboard something so that the media won't show what he's saying about the place he wants the team the run next piece saying it in number is only for testing is only for quarterback to know in a prayer by not of the team is not for the stadium.

If Jeffrey has been. It's a secret so you become the child to get the rulebook but God says every man I got playbook to give you some private instruction which I'll name on it and you is not for every man is for you, but that playbook is only given to men who, in the covenant under the covering operating the way God did it was. He gave the play to Adam. Adam gave the play the we got Adam look and behave play and the reason we got all the data looking again for the play is that men are close enough to God to give a secret Dr. Tony Evans will have more on the importance of spiritual covering tomorrow when he continues this lesson from his teaching series kingdom men rising more on that in just a moment.
