amen i say to anyone that will listen there’s no place like kcc and there are few people like pastor david johnson the room church already knows how i feel about him such a gifted humble man of god often he’ll ask me to trust his holy ghost when he wants me to do things that i don’t want to do but i say to you publicly pastor that i not only trust you but i trust your holy ghost and i thank god for your wisdom and thank god for your insight he may be younger than me but he’s older than me in ministry and he’s older than me in experience and pastoring and i gleaned from him and what a privilege it has been to just watch pastor johnson in action both what you see out front but also what i see behind the scene there’s few like him would you help me celebrate him one more time [Music] whatever the lord allows in our life we will always make sure that we bless and honor the visionary david johnson and his wonderful beautiful wife kenya we bless the lord for you amen thank god for you beauty is as beauty does she is beautiful inside and out and how she works so well partnering alongside this man of god for all of you here at the kcc church those that are here in person and

message and we know that it’s for someone here and for someone there amen we also just want to quickly pause my heart is overwhelmed and not only has the worship been high but members of the room church are here and we just want them to to know that i love and honor them and i thank god for your coming out um and being with us this morning i uh between wanting to shout and wanting to cry i don’t know which one is going to win out but there’s a brief message good to have by minister uh christopher marks amen that was ministering so well this morning amen amen we’re going to be tapping into him amen and the gift that lord has given him genesis 37 i’m sorry now genesis 38 rather genesis 38 [Music] a very peculiar scripture and we’ll be reading verses 27 through 30. genesis 28 verses 27 through 30 all of the other ministers deacon trustees that are here kcc as well as the rome church we bless the lord for you [Music] it says and when the time came for her to give birth there were twin boys in her womb as she was giving birth one of them put out his hand so the midwife took a scarlet a thread and tied it on his wrist and said this one came out first but when he drew back his hand his brother came out and she said so this is how you’ve broken out and he was named perez then his brother who had the scarlet thread on his wrist came out and he was named zira i want to talk about just for a few moments a pandemic pregnancy pandemic [Music] pregnancy a pandemic everywhere i go my sisters and brothers i seem to be encountering people who are seemingly sitting waiting on the pandemic to end before they strike out and make a move everywhere i go i encounter people that are taking a wait-and-see approach while pregnant possibilities have been placed all around them every where i go i see people that are just waiting to see what’s going to happen next while they’re sitting still doing nothing as i was walking this week as i tend to do i i ran into a little rain and so as a rain i came i took shelter under a kroger and i sat there and took out my phone and read my bible happened and i have a lot of different plans on the bible ad but but one of one of the plans took me right to this very strange passage of scripture it always has confused me when i would read uh genesis chapter 38 and wonder why is this here has anybody ever read the scripture can you be honest that there’s some there’s some places in the bible that you wonder why are they here this story has always confused me and it seemed to have no real value it sits and almost interrupts the story of joseph you know joseph who in chapter 37 is sharing his dreams and before you know it his jealous brothers uh i told him in the slavery you know joseph in chapter 39 finds himself about to be set up by potiphar’s wife in between chapters 37 and 39 the stories about joseph but right here in chapter 38 seems to be at misplaced and out of place in between joseph’s story is a strange story about about judah joseph’s older brother and one of jacob’s 12th son it is judith and judah brother and tamar his daughter-in-law who are prominent figures in this story and as i read this text earlier this week i seem to hear the lord saying to me preach this and i protested i said lord this don’t make no sense i never understood why you have it here god i don’t like stories about pregnant women god i’m a woman as theologian i don’t deal with this type of stuff but how many know that when you argue against god you might as well just sit your little black self down and so here we are talking about a sister named tamar who was experiencing her own personal pandemic we encountered tamar as god has put her husband er judas oldest son to death and she is left childish and the interplay between she and her father-in-law judah ends up ensuring that ultimately she finally gets what she wanted and that is to be pregnant surely the situation of her pregnancy my sister and brother was not perfect and some have suggested that her pregnancy is just downright low down but how many know that our stories and our efforts to give birth are not always pretty they’re not always easy stories to tell that they will come with some heartbreaking losses and they will come with some strange events no wonder people would rather sit and wait while life passes them by while others will commit to giving birth to their dreams because sometimes our story ain’t so pretty and sometimes trying to give birth ain’t no easy role amazing that this story even made it to the holy text i said that there must be something that god wants us to see in this strange tutorial about a woman who ultimately becomes pregnant during her own personal pandemic has anybody i know that we’re in a coronavirus pandemic but has anybody been going through your own pandemic your own personal pandemic it seems like just when things are turned around they fall apart again it seems like just when you get some order chaos happens and it is not how she got pregnant anyhow that i want us to consider today for it is the birthing story of her twins that stood out for me and begged me for consideration and forces me to ask you all these questions can i ask you what have you birthed lately can i ask you have you been able to bring forth anything beyond our fears and sadness and anxiousness beyond our water beyond i couldn’t can you point pinpoint one thing that you’ve given birth to lately it is these questions my sisters and brothers that i’m offering up this morning an attempt to push us from our places of complacency and lamentation in an attempt to mandate us to rise from the rubbish and begin to give birth to new things to new visions to new dreams and new ideas to new adventures that’s why isaiah 52 2 encourages us it’s time to shake yourself from the dust and arise that’s why god gave this pastor the marching order that says big doors are opening in 2021 for the suggestion is that even in a pandemic birthing is not only possible but birthing is necessary and the sad thing is that some may be waiting on big doors to open without being open to the process of birthing there are some things that god has birthed in our spirit there’s some things that that we keep blaming the pandemic as a reason for us not to go forth but there’s something that keeps bubbling over in our spirit sometimes you can’t sleep sometimes you can’t eat but but you just keep on acting like it’s not there can i ask you what are you waiting for and we dare not downplay the crushing blows of this pandemic we dare not suggest that this season haven’t pushed us to our knees and caused us to cry until our souls couldn’t cry no more it’s been a tough season anybody can you just type it in the comments it’s been a tough season it’s all right to admit that it’s been a tough season but even so i stopped by this morning to speak to that something within you that’s been crying out to be birthed i stopped by this morning to disturb that something in you that’s been waiting on you to give birth to it all around us doing this pandemic i’ve watched and i pay attention and i read and i i’ve seen the emerging of ideas and concepts and platforms that are that are being birthed out i’ve seen people get creative i’ve seen a whole lot of birthing doing this pandemic but i noticed something pastor johnson i i noticed something that that that that bothered me i noticed something that seems like in many regards the christian community remain unmoved and unmotivated in fact some in some ways i’ve discovered that that that even as i am giving birth we are giving birth to the room church the spirit is giving birth to the room church that when i tell the christian people now when i tell my friends outside of the church they’d be about to do flips but when i tell my christian brothers and sisters some of them look at me like i’m crazy and they they they ask me how you gonna i i i give birth in a pandemic that’s why i love this pastor in case you haven’t noticed he never fails to keep giving birth to new ideas that’s why i love this pastor he never fails to keep on giving birth to new moles of ministry even in a pandemic hey the doors of the church are open this pastor has already ensured that everything is safe the doors of the church is open and the spirit of the lord is high in here the greatest tragedy perhaps will be for the church to come out of this global pandemic as well as our own personal pandemics board of having birth anything except excuses and stillborn dreams i didn’t want to preach this y’all because it’s talking to me i didn’t even want to go here i wanted to talk about the lord would make a way somehow and i i wanted to join in the shout so we can shine our way up on out of here but but i had to preach it [Applause] because i’m afraid that we would come out of this pandemic having given birth to anything big or small that we’ve seen the sign every sunday but we ain’t giving birth to it i’m afraid that the pandemic has loved us waking up eating working watching tv and going back to bed and starting all over and doing the same thing the next day i know that birth isn’t easy i know that it can be a daunting task but i’m wary of seeing us sitting on the sideline of degrees sitting on the sideline of ministries sitting on the sideline of startup ministries sitting on the sideline of businesses sitting on the sideline of books sitting experiencing high worship on sundays ah but leaving out to substandard visions and dreams on monday can i just tell you it’s time for us to open and burst through big doors can i just remind someone that that that that that this is argument that we give still got time that big doors are still calling our name can i just remind someone to say yes to god and yes to the birthing process even if it’s doing a daggone pandemic look at that text here tamara is about to give birth and and her story includes three characters the midwife and our twin sons are uh perez and zerah each movement by these characters in our text comes with a lesson yeah each one of them comes and give us a lesson that we would need to understand if we are to burst some things in this pandemic season do i have anybody that says i’m sick of not birthing anything i’m sick of blowing out hard hair i’m sick of being the same anybody ready to give birth anybody know that this pandemic has gotten you down anybody here uh the first character in this text that comes to help us with a lesson if we are if we’re at a birth even doing a pandemic is is a midwife see her actions come to remind us that sometimes listen to this that sometimes the placing of scarlet threads are a bit premature in the birthing process that sometimes the placing of scarlet threads are a bit premature simply my brothers and sisters sometimes when we set out to give birth to our dreams people will try to prematurely write the end to our story that sometimes when we try to uh give birth to our uh uh our dreams that people would write your story and don’t check in with god that sometimes when we attempt to give birth to our dreams they have a whole bunch but to unauthorize biographies on you and god ain’t in it that sometimes when we’re attempting to give birth that people around us would tie a scarlet thread on the wrists of others suggesting that they not you will get the blessing tamar is pregnant with twins and with twins their birthright is at stake it’s hard for us perhaps in this modern culture to grasp the meaning and significance of the birthright in biblical times but in those days the order of birthright had tremendous meaning and authority the first burn would get a double portion of the inheritance the first burn would often be given preeminence and spiritual blessings as well the firstborn would have the authority and the prestige of the father’s letters fully passed down to them i said sometimes we don’t understand that when she tied that scarlet thread around the first child the one that she first saw his hand come out what that was saying is that you gonna be blessed that you gonna get the blessing that through the breathing process is gonna be you and in the biblical times it was customary for a midwife to assist with the birthing process and such was the case in our text our the midwife didn’t just ensure the safety of of the babies but but the midwife ensured that that she put the right mark on the first child to come out and because they did not want to risk making a mistake they had some scarlet some red thread or or or some red material and when the first one would would come out what they would do is they would put the thread around that one so that they could remember who got the blessings and so it appears listen to this that zurah put his hand out first and so the midwife placed the scarlet thread on his wrist it looked as if zero and not perez would get the birthright it looks as if that sarah would get the blessing that looked as if zarah would be successful but how many know that just because the scarlet thread seemed to give someone else the advantage maybe because of the age maybe because of their race maybe because of their gender maybe because of their status that it doesn’t disqualify you from the race he may have the scarlet thread but you don’t know my story [Applause] we often allow the scarlet thread has placed on others to suggest that they have what it takes to get the birthright and not us and many many back away from doing anything because my sister is smarter my best friend is brighter or my pastor is more anointing so ain’t nothing but for me to do but but listen you got to be wary of the people that are in your lives that have come to be distractors but where are your people in your lives that think it’s their duty to pre-write the your story based on what they think the outcome would be beware my brothers and sisters because if we are not careful we will mess around and acquiesce to a dreamless life that burps nothing big all because we believe somebody else report about us whose report will you believe [Applause] yeah many are content i’m almost through many are content to float without flight to exist without desire to show up without ever moving up they have allowed others to write their conclusion but i i’ve lived long enough to not compare my story to others because just because they have the scarlet thread on their wrist when god says it ain’t over it ain’t over when god says that i would write your story god will do it when god when our hands are in the lord’s hands and when he birth something in us god will write the conclusion you can’t get my story you don’t know it so we must get over comparing ourselves to others and get over the naysayers who who keep giving scarlet threats to others to stop your birth right as a child that’s why peter reminds us to annoy who we are so you you’re chosen you’re a royal priesthood you’re a holy nation you’ve got special people unless this midwife has tagged the arm of sarah with the scarlet thread labeling him as the firstborn a strange thing happened somebody said a strange thing happened if you walk with the lord jesus christ i can tell you that a whole lot of days if you pay attention some strange things will happen when you’re attempting to burst something some strange things will happen the bible says that that as this midwife had put uh put the scarlet thread on on zara thinking that he was the first one something happened that that that moves this from the midwife’s action to that of zero because the bible says that sarah threw back his hand that leads me to what zerah teaches us if we are to to birth some things zerah teaches us of the serious repercussions of joy and back in the birthing process i wonder i wonder how many dreams have died inside of people i wonder how many dreams die with people because they chew back many would never see that thing birth many would never see that thing brought forth not always because of somebody else’s attempt to stop them but because they drew back when obstacles came they drew back when the birthing process got tight they drew back when the classes got tough they drew back when others talked about them and ridiculed them they drew back when resources threatened to run low and when the visions seemed to loom too large they drew back when they couldn’t sleep too late they do back someone mistreated their kindness they grew back when their supporters left their back uncovered they they drew back when when the going just got a little too tough they drew back when the work glow got overbearing and the birthing of the room church there were many obstacles awaiting us and even now but drawing back was never an option somebody ought to put that in the comments that said the mom to give birth drawing back is not an option listen it’s not that god hasn’t burped some things in us but many would never reach beyond where they’re at because they have a tendency to draw back every time we reach out for the blessing of the birthright we allow fear and faithlessness and folly to pull us back into the dark canal where birthrights and dreams die zarah had been declared the firstborn with all of the birthright shaboop but he messed around and pulled back will anybody here be be bold enough to admit that the reason that you’ve not yet given birth to that thing is because instead of reaching forward you reach back one of the indictments again lost wife is that not only did she reach back she looked back and it’s hard to reach back without looking back when i served at the seminary that i was at most recently i would always as seminary pastor along with some other duties found myself counseling students who were this close to getting that degree who two or three classes and they just couldn’t do it they they wanted to they wanted to draw back and i would have to counsel them and push them and encourage them and listen sometimes we are closer than we think sometimes i would have to pull out the record and say you see how close you are sometimes you better have somebody in your life that’ll pull out the record and say you see how close you are oh i’m not going to let you fit quit oh baby i’mma call you number it i’m gonna call you at night you too close to drive back [Applause] there are countless stories of missed opportunities all because somebody drew back zarah was right there can i just tell somebody you right there you may need to rest you may need to take some depression they may need to take a long walking you may need to schedule a praise break you may even need to take a vacation but can i warn you that when it comes to giving birth you better not draw back baby you’re too close you’ve already come through too much and for those that have yet to get in the battle for those that have yet decided that they want to give birth be warned that the devil will always put drawing back in your way i pray oh the devil is a liar somebody ought to say the devil is a lie this leads me to my final my final lesson final person in our text and that is perez the midwife falsely tried to rewrite the story assuming that zarah would be the firstborn and get the blessing sarah was right there but he pulled back and then it leads me to perez i first was going to call this this summer the anointing of perez but but but but there’s another sermon for another day but perez becomes our our third person in this narrative this birth narrative and perez comes with a warning he warns us that our breakthrough doesn’t always need to be explained because god may be using it to make history but as we birth and as we begin to give breakthrough that to that thing is that is that we don’t always have to explain it the bible says that when zara drew back his hand perez came on out it’s almost kind of funny really you know it’s like it’s all my prayers i’m just waiting for the right time both boys have the potential to get the birthright hear me now both boys had the potential to get the blessing of the firstborn but when zero drew back perez slid on through the open door i may even marry somebody named perez because perez knows when to take an opportunity of a good thing yeah yeah if anyone isn’t here has ever burst some things then truly you can testify that god has a way of opening big doors that you didn’t see coming because you remain listen to this god has a way of opening big doors that you didn’t expect that you didn’t see coming all because you decided i ain’t gonna quit i ain’t gonna throw in the towel i’m gonna still be available god i’m gonna be committed to see this thing through oh god i want what you want from me god use me whatever same people i love this story the same people that the scarlet threads that place the scarlet threads on others and counted you out maybe the same one that god will will use to birth you your baby to give a name to your baby it’s in the text it really is uh uh the midwife had given the scarlet thread to to zero and then he pulled back and now the midwife got confused her own self and when you are walking with god and when you’re allowing god to burst some things sometimes people gonna be around you they’re gonna get all confused they don’t know what the hell can i say hell you doing so the midwife sees sees that perez now has taken prominence and listen what she said she she named it she said so this is how you broke it out oh the church knew how to shout uh it looked like he wasn’t gonna win it looked like he wasn’t gonna get over it looked like he wasn’t gonna birth that thing but but he broke on through and and really she named him perez which could means breach are you a breach baby but no baby when god is birthing this thing i ain’t no breach baby i’m a breakout baby when god is birthing this thing i ain’t no breach baby i’m one that knows how to push through an obstacle and in spite his brother putting a hand out first perez has broken through to the birthright perez get the blessing and when god i need a little music when god gets ready ain’t no explanation needed [Applause] we try keep trying to explain what god is birthing but when god moves and brings that thing to fruition shut up and and stop feeling the need you shut up you talk too much i think that was a song when you keep trying to explain to people what what god is doing and you don’t need to do that just flow and walk with god shut up you talk too much because often what we’re giving birth to is bigger than us shut up you talk too much often when we are giving birth there’s a set up from god shut up you talk too much yes our dreams are always bigger than us our dreams are always beyond us all we got to do is allow the lord to go with him to flow with him to partner with him to grab that thing that he’s already put in us perez breaks through the open door of opportunity i’m finished if you read your bible in ruth 4 12 and in matthew 1 3 you will discover that later genealogies will prove that perez shows up he shows up listen to this he shows up in the lineage of david which ultimately leads to you know the lineage of jesus christ you know jesus christ mary’s baby boy you know jesus christ the light of the world and the living of the valley you know jesus christ who was ordained to give birth to christ’s energy but they tried to stop him they tried to hold him they thought that they could uh put the scarlet threads on somebody else on the fair season on the sadducees but but they nailed them to an old rugged cross and they assumed that his dream was dead they assumed that he wouldn’t be birthing no christianity they assumed that our soul would not be saved but the bible tells us that jesus refused to draw back even though he went through hell even though he went through some stuff that jesus would break through the grave and declare that i got all power in my hand and because he got all power everything is now possible and because he got all power breakthrough impossible and because can i just tell you as i run to my sheet that right here in this place let me ask you this has anybody got some birthing in them anybody ready to get bored i see books i see degrees i see clothing lines i see bakeries i see neighborhood associations i see children’s ministry good morning kcc your girl is out of here my name is general y hatcher and i am giving birth in a pandemic i told the lord lord

with a supporting cast i can’t hear nobody talking to me if you watching online i want you to lay hands on yourself and put that in the comments and say i believe in what god put in me listen the more you believe in what god put in you the less dependent you’ll be on others to affirm it are you hearing me are you hearing me sometimes you just gotta know it and when you make yourself available to god then you and god together is a majority [Music] i know i got some witnesses in here that said man listen i ain’t even know what i was working with but god plus whatever i’m working with is enough and maybe you’re watching online this morning and you’ve been struggling all through the pandemic trying to birth what’s on the inside for some of you it’s relationship for others it’s a business for others it’s a dream for somebody else is going back to school but somebody else is raising children trying to be the best mother best father you can possibly be trying to be the best wife trying to be the best husband whatever it is you’ve been trying to give birth to i speak to the dream in you this morning can i tell you first of all you’ll never give birth to it without a relationship with jesus christ can i tell you this morning that jesus is the best thing that could have ever happened oh i know i got some witnesses in here that know that can lift your hand and say jesus is the best thing that ever happened to me i was a wreck i was a mess i was tore up from the floor until jesus christ came into my life and listen i’m here to tell somebody that’s online today that the same jesus christ that saved me can save you the same jesus that clean me up can clean you up the same god that gave me another chance to give you another chance pastor jay what must i do to be safe simple stuff you can believe that jesus christ was the son of god and that god raised him from the dead on the third appointed morning and right there you can be saved it’s as simple as abc accept jesus christ as lord believe in your heart that god raised him from the dead and confess it with your mouth for the bible says romans 10 and 9 that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord jesus and believe in thy heart that god has raised him from the dead you can be saved whether you’re in the sanctuary or online we’ve made evangelism at the invitation to christ as simple as it can possibly be right there
