More on this later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan Wright there's a natural competition that emerges between fathers and sons, I manifest itself in my little boy always wanted to wrestle.

So we get down onto the carpet just wrestle and if something is good in that father and a son just wrestle a course father. I could have it any moment Christ the little toddler but the father doesn't crush the toddler is just letting the toddler press against the father like you will make you stronger by being a little press against me a little bit so there's something that is sort of natural about that, but occasionally when a father misunderstands this and starts thinking that the child is the opponent that something terrible happened. I was down one of our outreach events on a Saturday afternoon a few years ago at the Bethesda center for homeless and we had a tent set up, you could come over and receive prayer and during the bit of time that I was there a man named Jimmy came over and I got the opportunity to talk to him is a sweet man and he told me not only that he needed prayer, but he told me his story. Jimmy had been a machinist, even an expert welder and things have gone horribly wrong for him and I was homeless. What happened Sidwell. My father was a kind. Amanda never told me he was proud of me never told me he loved me it was always competing against me.

He said the competition was always to see who was making more money. So my father always want to compare how much he was make and how much I was making a set of course it was hard to make as much when I was young, but then I really got good welding I was making a lot of money.

Is it for a period of time I was beating him, he said, but then he got a promotion and he was making more money than I was and he started belittling me about this and he started riding me all the time about it and I I would I do know how to make any more money and so finally I just sold drugs and I was incarcerated because of this, and ever since I've been out. I'm not to get on my feet and therefore he was homeless. How confused of a dad is that a father would recognize as Moses recognized it.

You you not in competition with your sons. When I was little and start playing golf around age 5. We go out and play is a wonderful time in my life to have five-year-old Bennett see me hit the golf ball and actually think I was good.

It didn't last for many years before he started figuring out that maybe I went not good, but for some years. If he can only hit it 40 yards, and I could hit it at least 200 yards I made me look pretty good and so that's the way it was. I realized early on that and was same thing makes a trauma wrestle with his dad was playing against me but what was happening is that he couldn't beat me at that age, even up from the Ford Junior tease, even if I gave him some extra shots and try to make it easier on it wasn't beating me and it was frustrating for him and so I realize this, I realized he was fighting back tears and he was getting more mad because it wasn't just whether he was doing well against the course but wasn't doing well against me this is taking away the fun and so one day early on in his golfing career.

I just said Bennett was and what were going to do today said it is not you against me that we on the same team so we don't take our best score on each hole and what see what we can do against this golf course. I know what you think would be a score that we should be able to accomplish against this golf course as well. Okay, maybe together with were three over par as an okay so here's that will take our best score on each hole. Whoever had the best ball will take that score. And if we if we shoot three over par and will call it. We tied the golf course. If we shoot to over par then we beat the golf course. It was you forever. Then we lost our and this started sometime probably when he was seven years old and still to this day we don't play against each other were playing on the same team trying to beat the golf course and this is been a very wise thing because it didn't take them to about age 11, where I was the one frustrated and ready to cry at the end because he was beating me just saying is, sometimes it's just this simple is just change the definition of who you're fighting against this change the game.

Just think most troubled relationships. Most marriages, many businesses maybe could be saved if we just changed who were fighting against especially for us as Christians to heed well the words that we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers in invisible places were not competing against other Christians or other churches. We are competing against invisible forces of wicked's so he had a wealth and side to him that transcended the competition. He had a wisdom that transformed the competition, but he also was just a picture of a leader who loved and that just trumped the competition. It just changes everything. Where there is love and I'm not just talking here about the way my wife is when Carolina is destroying somebody and basketball.

She comes in and starts feeling sorry for the opponent get out of here. We'll have mercy for the opposing team was not really talking about that time as something much deeper than feeling sorry for the underdog talking about fatherly love, something is in Moses his heart here that is it it it it is for this people right. My brother David wrote me this week that he had read an article in the magazine. Our state and it's about a father who took his four-year-old camping and as they were going to sleep that night in the tent. The four-year-old stated father's responsibility was to one make sure they didn't get killed to make sure they didn't get needed and number three that they didn't catch on fire and my brother just added the comment. I think that pretty well sums up core responsibilities. The father has a love that wants others to flourish. That's what it is Reynold's own Merwin Hayes and Michael Coomer who are executive coaches written a book about America's quiet CEOs and the book is called start with humility and they talk about the importance of humility in a leader in different chapters highlight different leaders is excellent, excellent book, one of those is a North Carolinian lady named Linda Combs who was appointed three different print three different presidential appointees and was eventually the controller of the Office of Management and Budget really huge job that has a lot to do with the ultimate fiscal responsibility and so after 25 years of service.

It is very high level in the government.

She was retiring and I think she's actually been appointed by Gov. McCrory to control her for more Carolina now but Hayes and Cromer were at the retirement since they were writing this article about of this chapter about her and they were there to hear her retirement speech as she was being honored for all that she had done and it was actually said she spoke 25 minutes, and 10 of those minutes were dedicated to lauding her assistant is something in it and a great leader that just you want others to to flourish that the fact of the matter is that thing with Bennett and I didn't want to not only be competing against him. Here's the bottom line really I wanted him to be better than me coming.

No loving father would curse their son with him wanting the same golf game that I have so I wanted him but that's what you want as a father you want your children to flourish and thrive.

It doesn't cause your heart to ache. If somebody else rises to some place above you. If you love that's what you want that five years ago we had a wonderful privilege. Our family was given a sabbatical and by the church and we took the whole summer off went all out West.

It was just a wonderful, wonderful rebooting time and during that pastor Chris are executive pastor preached wonderful series on Colossians throughout that summer and it was interesting. Before we took the trip.

How many people came to me other pastors and other places. That said, are you worried that he's going try to take over the church or someone will take over the church while you're gone on like first thing is you understand Presbyterianism that can happen. The second thing is not. We love each other. That's the craziest thought of ever heard of. But then I came back and pastor Chris had preached so wonderful it was. Rich messages all summer long there when I came back all my friends were delighted to tell me that they did miss me that much and that we got options now so how did that make me feel great, great talent right will have more teaching moment.

Today's teaching now continues once again is getting part of the heart of Moses here is that love doesn't want to hoard the glory wants to share it. Getting closer to what such good news for us. But the bigger issue here is that Joshua misunderstood something that Moses was celebrating Moses his glory would not be diminished if others shared in it, but his glory would be increased. Moses his stature, his leadership would not be threatened if others begin to experience God as he had, but instead it would be increased. Moses his success was not threatened by others being filled with the spirit, his success would be defined by that because what was Moses called to do.

Among all the things that God had called him to do. It was at least these to be a deliverer. What is the deliverer do you lead them out of their slavery and into freedom. His goal was it the people would be free. He was called to be a mediator was a mediator do mediator was to go between God and the people to help the people draw near unto God's goal was at the people would experience God and he was an intercessor as an intercessor who was advocating with God for the people.

What was his goal. His goal was to see that the people were blast and he was the one who would receive God's revelation go up on the mountaintop, be given the 10 Commandments as a proclaimer and receiver of God's word. What was Moses's goal is goal was for the people to receive the revelation of the Lord's goal was for them to hear from God and as a leader as the ruler. What was his goal. His goal was not to board over the people's goal was to empower the people so that they along with him could rain over their enemies and flourish in the land of their inheritance. So what was happening. As these people were experiencing God, and freely prophesying was a very fulfillment of what Moses was called his people to be free to come in an outcome find them one moment they're experiencing God they were drawing near to God.

That's what a mediator wants to help people be reconciled and experience God and they will be in blast. They were they were experiencing the wonder of how blessed they were the privileges that they might've been reserved only for Moses are now being given to them receiving the word of God. That's what Moses wanted revelation being poured out into their lives and they were brave and they were confident they were triumphing because God was with them. This is the very thing that Moses had been called by God to do so is saying and he said don't stop them, Joshua. This isn't a threat to my success. This is the demonstration of my success. Hebrews 2 says that is wonderful as Moses was. Jesus is better. He's the better deliverer.

He's the better mediator. He is the better revelation. He is the better ruler. Jesus was called to be all those things to deliver people not out of the literal bondage, but out of a spiritual bondage and bring us into freedom. He was called to be the mediator one mediator. The Bible says between God and humanity. This man Christ to reconcile us under God through his own shed blood. Why did Jesus come because it was a huge gulf between us and God. He came to make it possible that we would be united with God and he is our intercessor. Romans says he is advocating for us. What is an intercessor want he wants those that he intercedes for to be blessed to be blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ and he is the revelation of God hears the word became flesh he came and said that he was the light of the world what he want for us. You want us also to be the light of the world wants us to have revelation have light have truth.

That's what he wants and he's the king, I tell you he is the ruler, but he is not a ruler who wants to make subservient slaves, but instead we just staggers our minds.

Imagination, Paul says that if through one man's trespass. Speaking of Adam all have have been defeated in sin, how much more do we reign with Christ who gives us life, see Jesus came and he called 12 unlikely men to his side and he began to spend time with them and even though they were very well trained. He sent them out even before Pentecost to be able to do miracles in his name, and they came back and they were astonished. They said even the demons are subject to us in your name and in John 14 chapter 14 verse 12 Jesus said you'll do the things that I've done an even greater things that you will do in John chapter 16 Jesus at all that the father has his mind. Therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. And in Ephesians 2 Paul says something that is mindbending. He says that we those that are in Christ have been raised up together with Christ and that we been seated together with Christ in the heavenly's we have been mystically seated in the place of honor and glory alongside of Christ. You see what is happened is that Christ has shared his life with us. He has shared his resurrection life with us. He has shared the glory should be reserved only for him with us his glory is not diminished when you are blessed and filled with the Holy Spirit.

His glory is magnified. In other words, who is Jesus. These are deliverer, and he is most delighted when you're most free ideas are mediator so he is most delighted when your closest to God.

He is our intercessor. So he's most delighted when you're most blessed he is our revelation and so he is most delighted when you are most filled with truth and he is the king who is most delighted when you are raining gloriously in the Christian life is most delighted when you discover yourself to be the head, not the tail.

Every other sort of religious cult leader in history wanted to hoard the power cord the glory horn. The special recognition and Jesus came so that he might so when you receive from God fresh impartation of his spirit, you bring honor and glory to him. My point is simple. If Moses had to chuckle and say are you jealous for my sake. I wish that everybody would prophesy.

I wish the Lord would put his spirit on everyone that this was the heart of God. It had been spoken to the put through the prophet Joel. The time is coming, in which all pour out my Spirit on all flesh in acts chapter 2. When people Pentecost had come, Peter stood up and he said this is that, of which Joel spoke. This is always been the heart desire of God to pour out his Spirit. The should of been reserved only for his beloved son, but instead to pour out his spirit and blessing and life upon all flesh so received from him and you bring honor to him and that is the gospel teaching Moses is blessing your life. Grace filled vision for your rights, free grace and encouragement. It's free pastor got away like something is holding you back if you can important see could change everything.

When you get today. We will send you a special offer. We are happy to send this to you as I thanks from Alan Wright Ministries, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website pastor at work. There's a point in our lives. Alan, we understand the goodness of God. And then there is there are times I think we go through we we know intellectually but sometimes have a hard time feeling and and and and we long for the moments when they could both be at that high level. The intellectual understanding and the feeling the experience.

We talked about this. Well, here is a picture of a real historical picture of Moses. This noble noble man who says I wish everybody would prophesy. He doesn't want to hoard the power unto himself, who is our model. Prefiguring Christ himself, and this is what I want every listener to think about Jesus, who was the only one who deserved the intimate rewards and presence of God in a communal Holy Spirit instead said is better not go away because then I can send my spirit. I can send the Holy Spirit. If you could believe that Moses was noble enough and secure enough to want to share the prophetic gifts that he had with others at how much more so does Jesus secure the heavenly's want you to be filled with his own life.

This is how you can be assured you can be filled with the Holy Spirit.

This is how you can be assured that it doesn't have to do with whether your righteous enough is all to do with Christ. Christ love for you is sure that every point he's our new Moses and he longs his greatest wish is for you to be filled with his life. Joshua learned something that day and the goals of Moses were being fulfilled so he was glad about that and all of this.

Ultimately, Daniel prefigures Christ. He's the greatest leader in human history. And he was the one who actually said you'll do great things done so, the nature of God is that his glory is not diminished when his children flow in his own power and mercy. Instead it enhances his glory and today's good reported production Alan Wright Ministries
