Hello and welcome to Destin for victory with pastor Paul Sheppard will because of who Jesus is. All who believe in him, have already been saved from the eternal penalty of sin. One day we will be safe in the very presence of sin. But in the meantime, as we live out our lives on earth can be saved from the power of sin. Today's message is straight ahead so stay right here or visit pastor to listen anytime on demand. That's pastor you can also subscribe to the podcast podcasts modify or wherever you enjoy your podcasts now is pastor Paul. Today's Destin for victory message Emmanuelle my church all you knew me like that I get it all. You knew what you got up in their what you don't know what they got going ice and everything and that all present on the phone appointment went. Some example of how you know example you tell me. How about that, whatever body does the story. This is also the other people don't is amazing. Some people are legalistic about you, but they're merciful about themselves and other people hard on myself. If you take that which into the new year be better off stop jacking everybody up against the wall because that not everything they need to be something we're so busy judging people's lives that were not growing ourselves and so he's going to save us from our sins, he saved us from the penalty. He saves us from the power. So what's happening will be.

That's when I'm saving them from the presence of sin. That's whatever body is like our Savior and were going to rejoice in his presence forevermore when the meantime here and now you can be saved from the penalty and you can be saved from the power verse 22, and so this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, behold, the virgin shall be with child bear a son, they shall call his name Emmanuel well, which is translated God with us. When it was God with us when he passed it I heard you say before that God is everywhere sold in this Emmanuel, God with us. We don't need him named back to know he's with us. Know this isn't God everywhere.

God is everywhere. The Bible is clear about that.

Psalm 139 where can I go from your spirit. Verse seven. Where can I flee from your presence if I just ascend to heaven you're there if I make my bed in hell.

There if I take the wings of the dawn if I dwell in the remotest part of the city, even there your hand will lead me your right hand will lay hand on me he is everywhere. That's omnipresent God is God's presence everywhere in the universe.

How do you know that because he is the creator of the universe and he is present. The Bible tells us. Jeremiah 23 verse 23 cannot high myself from hiding places so that I do not see him, declares the Lord, why not fill the heavens and the art declares the Lord God who is near, declares the Lord our God who is not far off. Hebrews 413, no creature is hidden from his site, all naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give an account, so the Bible is clear God is everywhere in the universe.

But when he is called Emmanuel that's not talking about on the presence it means God with us. Okay, that was the difference between God everywhere, God with us. Well, look around you there a whole lot of people in the room. But most of which you write so section very close question on which you wish, she wishes going on where he decided to go so well is not God's. In the same room. Emmanuelle is God is my plus one plus one came to church and he came with me when I leave here. He's going with me to see the difference in this area in the facility don't know he's me know what the different visual member is going to a party and somebody would look across the room and you are looking open the dance with what you are quite short with each other, hoping against hope somebody will remember to we all remember when you were to shot you want somebody to dance with Tushar, when you will be shot down Baltimore my mom telling you all know is true.

Okay, but also how you grow out of that one day if not that's okay to make your daily way is one thing is another thing to be together one you take to the party which that's who he said I you and I came to get Lee will even begin your trials on the go, for which you had a hard time bumblebee with you when life knocks you upside your head I'm going to be there to help you get through tough times when he's with.

He's my plus one, but technically I'm his plus one because he's doing lead talk about fulfilling your divine purpose. That's where you gotta start letting him leave you stop trying to leave God we got to get out of this generation of people who think we know everything about you realize you follow somehow me. I promise I'll follow you because I know you would not leave me will not leave myself all know there's a way that seems right to a man with the Bible and there are better ways of death. The times you think you are right only to find out later and I had to let him lead you. He could've circumvented that path, he could've changed. But thank God he doesn't leave us when we blow it. That's what I love about him is my plus one. When we mess up even Solomon. I'm outta here. God is now look at you.

If all of us were houses would be fixer uppers, but there's only one contractor can get the job done right. And his name is Jesus is pastor Paul with the rest of today's Destin for victory message Emmanuelle how many of you all have kissed enough for all plants when I see it now somebody with those three words ready are you going to walk away not a prince. All I said business shall make you we got to get you nation that you say by now your project is always behind schedule schedule by now he'd be worth Marion everything to him and W even give up trying to make it happen. Plants cross gender now. Used to be only willing to give them some goal you don't know you.

You got what you been doing your money right so some you can't keep get on my feet. See you find out why he's off his feet in the first place.

So you gotta figure out God didn't make you the project manager so you looking for love, but don't try but I love trying to fix love people who cannot and I'm trying to help people manage this relationship by helping them understand man often marrying thinking she won't change. Women often marry thinking he will change both are in for a rude awakening. The women who say he will change change and those are project managers knows it focal realize this project behind schedule over budget. I can't keep doing this sometime. The women think you can nag once you Marion and you see what what you were hoping for. Then you send Catholics and by nagging him. Let me help your marriage will quit for our practice and help your marriage sisters is a verse in the Proverbs you need to memorize something woman is like a constant dripping on a rainy day.

How's that for change will get you where you want to go slow enough you. You have to stand man have an internal switch you've never seen it so you'll know, let Pastor bless you with this information. This will give you if you mark on this a love offering for the past. I'm about to change your life for the better man have a switch you've never seen it and you will still nagging, still fussing, still ran. He can be saying okay yeah he's not present he's not present he's in the but he is not Emmanuelle. He is not with you at that moment, you're right.

You still going on. Now he know so quit just madness you married him as he is and you get married you will marry. If you decide to go through with it as he that's why to you to come as early as you think you might want to consider marriage. That's the time to call us up pastor PT want to go to sit down with us we not engage in the best that we do not engage in your figure because by the time your flash in a ring you're not here with us and but almost never does it help so I will. I got one and I wish you all well, but I will give them the information they need to look at, so that before they say I do have looked at all the things you will need to commit to work your commitment is not how compatible how wonderful we just five we finish each other since it is not what makes a marriage work. It is when you commit deep enough, my commitment goes deeper than my frustration which you you I'm sick, but my commitment is to help somebody you get my last. I am committed and so pre-engagement counseling allows me to speak to you when hopefully you can hear something. I broke up a couple of couples. I'm very proud of that is made up when I know I'm so happy you need to come say the pastor can break, looking objectively at this subject, you said no I'm talking here you sit here just let me help you understand because I am in love with me. The one I love you in Christ, but I'm not in love not going to be pulled by all of this stuff. The trappings and their couple couples. I said well you went to counseling.

I respect and appreciate you. I would recommend you look at these red flags that I pointed out to you gave them to them here not, you know, hence I will drop in schools around people always pick him up never drop hints. Meanwhile the person you want to get it.

Talking to go drop hints will be picking up tell folks what they need to know.

That's why you endorsement all the time don't need to build relationships with people who can tell you the truth the whole truth but the truth don't ask people to love you and lied to you I need you to love me by speaking the truth in love, you'll have to come for me all the time but I do need you to speak the truth and you know how to do it. Just leave if you say some hardly what you know I love you right that's the anesthesia someone that topical you know I love you. Now you tell them some feelings but I'm hurting you to review something good and let people love you. It's better to be told the hard truth by a friend and be flattered by an enemy that those who love you speak the truth of God into your life even if it hurts a little.
