The. The the a verbal was tat we needed to keep from lamps trimmed burning. The time is right now in a dark and perverse world, full of malice hatred, envy and strife and confusion. If you don't do anything today, but keep your lamp.
Trim the burning. You will have been, what Jesus call you to be the hello everybody. I agree to a man, vegetable name of Jesus Christ, our king. I'm so excited to share this word with you today. It will bless your life from a series of shared at the church. I'm gonna shared with you. It's gonna give you the principle that you need to go to the next level this week.

The samuel is in the house of the lord. We are clear that offline videos do not know the lord and now samuel has come into the house of the lord and he has come as a servant. His mother has given him to the lord. He has become a servant of the lord you're, not going to like this word that I'm going to use, but I'm going to use it anyway. He was a slave. To the lord is not just for wild nodded, indentured servants forbear to tat the bow had been made. he would serve the lord oh the days of his, these there in the triple at what we stepped into this text. It is that the rider would start the discussion with a flickering flame.
A flickering in there the lamb, without you must understand that part of samples responsibility was to keep the light going. The light was, representative of the presence of the power of the word of god. The light was illumination through the spirit, well job to make sure that that light did not go out because of light in body. The very presence of the lord and it is an odd thing to get a small book, because the bible is a very small book for the mass of subject that it embraces, the bible is go more than a pamphlet compared to the years of history. It covers is just a small book. It has no time to waste with irrelevant details. So if the bible took the time to mention it, there is something in it that we must look at because
Well doesn't waste time telling us thoughtless information. It tells us there. The lamb of god went out in the triple the flickering light is indicative of so many things. Perhaps it embodies the fact that we have a flickering light and we also have a flickering priests. The bible, says of aid that his eyes had rolled them and his vision was poor, his decisions were spasmodic. Sometimes he does the right thing, and sometimes he does the week they had just as much as the light is flickering in the temple. man's flickering his season of power and authority and clarity is winding down and the light is flickering light is flickering too
The children of Israel, our flickering, they had gone to the point that they have more coming the wards of important because I'm off than twenty as an impart, because the subject said about dollar three, because them to be inconsistent in their lives. And so they're coming toward god was flickering like the flickering flame in the temple in the holy spirit, takes a time to remind us of the latest flickering so that we will understand that the like flickering is just a symbol of the flickering inconsistent sees in the lives of the people that we're talking about. Online in this role could be seen. Perhaps many of them would flickered before you turn up your nose and cut them this situation than the scriptures that this one?
it's the asu. If your lights were visible, would it be consistent or would you be a flickering flame or spot of light? Would you be the kind of person that was sometimes hot and sometimes cold, and sometimes right and sometimes wrong, and sometimes strong and sometimes weak, and sometimes wise, sometimes a fool? Let's remember the flickering light in the temple. It was flickering, but it was in the temple. It was spasmodic, but it was in the temple It was much like many of us who come to church today we might be flickering but we're in the temple. We might be spasmodic, but we're in the temple we might One is that we might be schizophrenia, is the way that we worship the lower, but we are still in the temple, and god has given up all of us at every now. There he'll said somebody,
people said somebody he'll said a word. so the song he'll sort to keep your trip. Burning up, as the first president bid terms. More light was getting them. It was dark all those very well what a plane I believe the is the living, but without it oh god, always sub sets a body, said: the sultan, at all,
it all the gods in the temple. This boy is learning how to sir, I don't know what happened to us. We will know how to sir we came into the country is servants, and now we know how to sir it doesn't seem glamorous to serve. Everybody wants to be a boss rafa. I see it on your T.

Disciples by girding himself with a towel and Jesus, the lord of glory, who commands the host of Heaven, get down on the floor and washed his disciples feet and you require what I don't want to walk too far I don't want to come of this. Raining must have a special seat. I must sit innocent
play. Some us have a parking space. You require more than Jesus, something happens to samuel while he serves. There is only a give to people who sir people just come. They will get some level of blessing, but they will never get this. There is something that you git when you, sir, that you don't when you watch Considering god made himself a serve, I think there is a kinship between his service two hours, that when you, sir you see more, he revealed
the more he showed more. He magna paths himself. really. This is the essence of the tax base that weighed upon the lords. renew their strict. This amount wings like legal, social, rob and not be. We're relates awoke and not very sees a problem with this is that we misinterpret the text. We think that they that way. The about means that you ought just be sitting here wait, no more, but it that's. What takes me why? What Be weary and walk about frame always like eagles, because if I'm waiting on the lord should sitting in their way like grandma waits on the bus to come? But that is not the right type of weight. is this the way the way sure the this through good
Have you thought about beware, so you go. the poet but better. That way. The renew their strict, sometimes out of trouble just because the waited your body just because you waited he'll protective of it. The The This was a son is another point that was all about
I think one of the powerful things they exploded a whole woman thou I've used was number one model number to me. Oh man, I just amazed at how this money so many women, together with his usual manner and we became sisters. Shame I'm tree of terror.
The problem is, is that god will disturb the arrest, the few believe in god. You must understand that. God is not a lazy boy chair for you to curl up in and read a book. He is not concerned about your comfort. In fact, you are too comfortable. You are too comfortable, so god doesn't say I won't bother him til morning because he needs his rest. No god is not polite, like you He doesn't care about being political color the moment the boy gets the pillow up head and it gets into the fetal position and prepares to really get one.
that's it. leaps up out of the way because he's a servant and with your server and you hear your name call you the duty, because you have been trained to activate at a moment's notice. You will go right into it when you're not a servant, you a bowl, cover your head up and ignore it, but when you have a train to serve you snap in the duty snap to duty- and he ran to Eli and said to call me when is the holy spirit telling us. That when we first begin to what, with god the voice of god, will always sound like your teacher, it was

Because all of the work that you have from god has come true that voice So when you hear that boys, you think you'd see goes to Leila and says you call me, the losses are coldly not come back and lay down.

No less, though that's why you're disappointed, because you need help what's a breach of the principles of sound. there are certain things that are only reveal to, though So, sir, it's amazing you're stronger than you think you are, but the strength doesn't come until you're serving while you're doing it. While you're giving it your things that you thought
