Dr. Tony Evans is more than just God-given guarantee not more than three 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 crutches 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 the 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 place where the content of one's character would be more important than the color of one's skin. Remember most was probably 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 what did that he molded 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 I see some see the coming of the Lord. That is, glory, plan program, so I'm dream and miss out on something honestly that say 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 came down here for 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 and await 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 the two verses I want to focus on a new song verse 96 for you to take a break seal when you were slave and 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 Wayne upon the earth. Now God says this is the glorious tomorrow which we we are headed today with the recognition of the rulership of Jesus Christ will be worldwide and when his people will sing praises alongside of him and 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.

He said they sign a new song is a context of worship celebration of praise, but with all the new song song comes when you were following up on Dr. room. Everyone will the clouds makes the sunshine again the situation right now and so because you say they brand-new intervention of God 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 GF all along the whole bunch of new song that comes out of the three that God has brought to bear in 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 dream if you will Jesus Christ be everything you read to you. Ephesians chapter 1 please like this. What you doing it ministration suitable to the fullness of times.

That is the sum of all things in Christ free things on earth also inherited them according to the purpose who works 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 says that God dream is that people from race background orientation in terms of nationality are going to be represented around God's throne what's going to give them their commonality. The blood says the one that will make up all my approaches with the same blood. That's why Jesus said be lifted up I will draw all to me why because the one that the common currency that brings us into a relationship with God. When you go around the world will be Christian congregations related to God and one another because of blood. The Bible says that the blood of Jesus Christ to have the right, the Mason-Dixon line has erased the variance between not only God and man between man and woman mother wears a problem going back to work with the Kenya dream wife has been so difficult what the ring was typical in the world is because the church has got it right does not remember the chance to suppose the Mira the kingdom of said first understand you may be a kingdom of priests wound.

We talk about this kingdom agenda think the rule of God. The problem is that the priests are missing Christian of the priests that it doesn't have access to God for the purposes of worship and service we Christians have access to God in worship and service. The problem is that instead of being priests, but God will work in it being acceptable to make it like Peter diligence up to ham sandwiches with the Gentiles, with the Gentiles was a one-day revelation from heaven that phone call unclear what I call cleanup work you judge me not based on how you will raise God Vincent Peter to Gentiles chameleons. He would never associate with Gentiles, but they rented We don't do that criterion anymore talking now goes over and he is now fraternizing with the Gentiles and discovers how good they can cook.

He had never happened before.

He had shipments before Gentiles. No to getting with the Gentiles. The Bible showed up.

I some of the Jews shall not Gentiles and got upset diligence to being in the circumcision that is what is race what the Jews bought the circumcision of the Jews got up from the table with Gentiles recording diligence to verse 11 in the chapter back and got up completed one of his race along the side of the Jews talk to the rest. Peter got up to why because the mess in the pool. If the fault of the pew so that when the leader is not willing to leave right.

The followers can follow right so the Jews got up to one dollars and six bus will be back with more on that in a moment. First though, Dr. Evans, your book oneness embraced is the perfect follow-up for 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 creations 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 he 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, attribute to Black history month.

Collaborate with other students get your specific questions answered online for connecting the Tony Evans training center Tony It's like having a seminary on your smart phone or device. Start today Tony Evans was no encouragement was born in Cyprus of the Gentile, so he was raised with Gentiles group Gentiles school would Gentiles play ball with Gentiles.

That's not bad racism make a good man was there Gentiles sit down and eat what you tell your people shall show up and my now don't want to associate with you. The problem occurred with partial 5% Paul came in and saw what was happening and Paul before them all and you astray.

But guess what you meant was what it was you and can't decide what the true gospel.

The name of God, you are the word of God. You are the truth of God.don't know yet All is what Jesus meant John to lay people would agree with me if you can have 100 piano all the same tuning fork. They will be to God is only going to work with his people and he closes this dream of the future which was supposed to mirror now in verse 10, when he says they will reign upon the earth, to name something in the Bible must exercise authority so everything he name to control didn't just say this is what it's going be called. This is what will be called naming also involved future to name something like one woman to command me to command name because of the future. Bin Laden made all these promises that her and she believed that she think she's got this great future name because of the patient off tomorrow involve the future divorce following leniently youth because it involves going somewhere. If you take money so maybe meant to have dominion over something and to take it somewhere to name all the animals and even named even exercise authority over and we will reign with.

In other words, when you are connected properly to Christ, you get to have dominion over the things that God give you the right and that's authority, dominion, raining and being in charge when you have this biblical worldview that I'm a king smoking about 13 is only one the kinks. I am a king. Smoking as I get the name so you get the name the children because you're in authority over them.

But why do 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 mingling every Christian.

In general, and every male Christian in particular has been called to to speak over something and its future so that we will reign with him will reign with him. What the future over the whole earth because the Bible says that we will be given assignments and we will rule the earth with him, I'll manage. Even angels will be judged by ships and if you don't understand.

You got a small camp for the good you get the thing you don't act like a king you don't act like a king jewel think like every Christian has been brought into this dream of going with Christ partnering with him and being alongside of him and God's philosophy of history we all have homes and in our homes. We have which 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 the house because you 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 I would ask you my going outside this pneumatic problem if you want to work in my house because this will GO to your house when you live your rules. I like the way the furniture is arranged and you didn't buy you not like it but you cousins house and there is some conflict when you want to operate your weight in my week will be better parents 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 one of our problems today as many of us are living in conflict with God as individuals living in conflict with God's family living conflict.many churches living in conflict with God and will certainly the society of living a conflict with God. So we constantly but like always say like a rebellious teenager when we meet we still want to go to bed machines with my thoughts expect me to be happy about giving you all last fall when you respect how Jesus Christ is simply saying himself. There is a dream and you going to get the right to sing a new soul ultimate song of the future when you get the practice sessions today and missile so it's fine. Not bad world of the world is going to help in a hand basket you not to lose your more than a clock that God has a dream about his future, especially if you recognize house rules. It's his kingdom. He became in you is that service Dr. Tony Evan talking today about how our dreams can come true.
