Dream question Dr. Tony Evans is who is more than just a God-given guarantee not this is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative. I dream can be powerful enough to set a whole new direction for our lives if we don't allow discouragement to crush today. Dr. Evans takes a look at the amazing difference it makes when we dream God's dreams and start seeing them come true. Let's join. It was August 20, 1963 that the greatest speech of the 20th century was given by a king.
Martin Luther King what was great about the speech was not only the eloquence of the spokesperson. His ability to craft words in an impactful yet concise way. What made it what is arguably the greatest public speech of that century. What Corbett was a speech about a dream. It was a dream about a different kind of America was a dream about a place where the content of one's character would be more important than the color of one's skin. The thing I remember most was only the vision that he had expressed for America and then step up and said I had seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, but would seem that he will live from a social speech to a spiritual speech when he sought to bill genetically was the dream, the vision into the program and purposes of God.
The king said was something I see the coming of the Lord. That is, glory, plan program, so I'm dream and miss out on something honestly that see the future and adjusting the present in light of it is nothing like peeling out tomorrow beginning to implement it today because you see well the individual is the person who doesn't see anything because we see anything, you lose hope.
When you lose the ability to dream about a better tomorrow. You just ruined your today because you on that occasion in 1963, one saw another king up there in an attempt to root a vision for a better country. In this case, racially speaking to the plans and programs of God's King pastor that moved to the forefront of my mind since it involved the dream off my mind went to Revelation chapter 5 because in Revelation chapter 5 we get into the future and if you can see the glory of the coming of the Lord's day, while we look forward to in a way awesome tomorrow that God has in store for us. Revelation speaks about the future and the glorious culmination of history as it bleeds into eternity also functions as a mirror for how we function now, in light of the glorious tomorrow that we await in the two verses I want to focus on a new song verse 96 you to take a break seal when you were slain in purchase for God with your blood men from every tribe and every tongue and people and nation may be a kingdom and priests to our God and they will upon the earth. Now God says that this is the glorious tomorrow which we we are headed day when the recognition of the rulership of Jesus Christ will be worldwide and when his people will sing praises alongside of him in the ruling of this planet's vision of a better tomorrow is supposed to be being married today through his unique group of people, Christians, those who make up the church of Jesus Christ was a celebration they sign a new song. This is a test of celebration of praise, but with all the new song comes when you were following up on Dr. room.
Everyone will the clouds makes the sun again the situation right now and so because you brand-new intervention into your circumstances. Seven. Israel signed a new song lack of God and not a new thing. One thing I am looking forward to this all along the whole bunch of new song that comes out of the three that God has brought you your life no reason that God is so they say when you say so while expression vision of God through Jesus Christ. What you do now in principle is because that is why you have three dreams come true problems when we don't get so much, as we saw that we will be paid for by another Jesus Christ is the all you and if you would dominate your will dominate dominate your plan. If you just letting you, you would see how good he could think God if you will Jesus Christ be everything you read you.
Ephesians chapter 1 please like this with you doing it ministration suitable to the fullness of times.
That is the sum of all things in Christ on earth also evident them according to the purpose work all things after the counsel of his will in the first time that God is go up all God's dream. So if you reading if you want to see the coming of the Lord your drinking, but it must be to bring all aspects of being the party of Jesus Christ. When I dream you can see the coming of the Lord prevents God's dream and he gives us a picture of it happening in heaven.
This picture of heaven that supposedly mirrored on earth by kingdom come by will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Almost every tribe, every tongue, every people and every nation. In other words, is a worldwide dream and it will involve people from every background, every language, every orientation, every race when Dr. King made a speech dream for America was that the differences that we have would not interfere with our common unity like computer relationship to ham sandwiches with the Gentiles, Gentiles was a one-day revelation from heaven that don't call unclear what I call cleanup work you judge me not faithful how you will raise God Vincent Peter to Gentiles chameleons would never associate with Gentiles, but they rented… We don't do that criteria anymore talking now goes over and he is now fraternizing with the Gentiles and discovers how good they can cook. He had just people before we had shipments before. No eating with the Gentiles by boy showed up. I saw the Jews shall Gentiles and got diligence to being in the circumcision that is what is right what the Jews bought circumcision Jews got up from the table with Gentiles record intelligence to verse 11 in the chapter back and got up one of the race along the side of the Jews. Talk to you Peter got up to cover the mess in the pool. If the fault of the pew so that when the leader is not living the legal right followers can follow right so the Jews got up one step above us away will be back with more on that in a moment first. So, Dr. Evans, your book oneness embraced is the perfect follow-up for what were learning today as we talk about God's dream for unity among his people. Tell us more about well, that was really a book from the hardware I deal directly with the race issue I confronted talk about the justice issues the cultural issues the political issues that informant historical issues and then we try to conclude with giving a practical strategy for transformation any community based on the word of God. So we want to not cancel out our differences but we want to embrace our uniquenesses so that we can manifest all that God had in mind when he created like he creates differences in every area of his creation to show the breath of his wisdom, the breath of his glory. The same thing happens with rice.
God wants to show the breath of his creative genius when it creates the racism embrace the uniqueness of your race. Just use it in concert with God's purposes. Oneness embraced explains why unity among Christians of all kinds isn't just about getting along, but getting things done in our hearts in our churches and in our communities now for a limited time were packaging a copy of the newly revised oneness embraced along with the six full-length messages in Tony's current teaching collection faith, hope, unity tribute to Black history month.

That's not bad racism make a good man was way there Gentiles sit down and eat what you tell your people shall not show up. My now don't want to associate with one of your home occurred when Paul showed 5% Paul came in and saw what was happening and Paul befall them all and you astray once is what was inside with the true gospel name of God the Word of God. The truth of God.no Christ.
Christ.this dream of the future which was the mirror now in verse 10 says they will rain upon the earth when you have this biblical worldview, you get the name the children because you're in authority over them. But why are you naming them to get them ready for the future. You get the name things and and while the person the question in general and most certainly the male Christian who spends his life never raining over anything never really every Christian. In general, every male Christian in particular called to speak over something and its future will have homes and in our homes we have with Michael house rules rules that govern how we operate manically around us. When there is rebellion against countries. This is particular with parents and children into a conflict when somebody living in your house disregards the wounds of conventional house. If you drink and you coming to my house then you need to leave Jack Daniels and it's bad outside okay because the house if you slow ashtrays in the house that why would ask you my going outside this pneumatic problem if you want to work in my housecoat this you'll bounce house when you hold your rules when the furniture is arranged and you didn't buy you not like it but you cousins house and some conflict when you want to operate your way in my house we go be with one parent and children right now World War III because they want to change's. This is God's house and he only functions by his rules.
So when you bring your rules into his house. You got a conflict. So what about problems today.
As many of us are living in conflict with God as individuals living in conflict with God's family living in conflict.many churches living in conflict with God and will certainly the society living in conflict with God. So we constantly but like I always say like a rebellious teenager when we meet we still want to go to bed.
