  • - Darren Wilson: For 10 years,
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.000
  • I've traveled the world in an
  • 00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:01.250
  • attempt to film God touching
  • 00:00:01.250 --> 00:00:03.050
  • people's lives.
  • 00:00:03.050 --> 00:00:04.060
  • And I've captured some of the
  • 00:00:04.060 --> 00:00:04.290
  • most incredible moments of faith
  • 00:00:04.290 --> 00:00:06.200
  • and miracles ever caught on
  • 00:00:06.200 --> 00:00:07.220
  • film.
  • 00:00:07.220 --> 00:00:08.180
  • But I've discovered that faith
  • 00:00:08.180 --> 00:00:09.260
  • is as much about questions as it
  • 00:00:09.260 --> 00:00:11.190
  • is answers, as much mystery as
  • 00:00:11.190 --> 00:00:13.260
  • it is certainty.
  • 00:00:13.260 --> 00:00:14.270
  • So, I want to take you on a new
  • 00:00:14.270 --> 00:00:16.160
  • adventure.
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:17.140
  • Together, we'll wrestle with big
  • 00:00:17.140 --> 00:00:18.250
  • questions about God, but we'll
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:20.140
  • also see faith in its purest
  • 00:00:20.140 --> 00:00:21.280
  • form.
  • 00:00:21.280 --> 00:00:23.090
  • It's time to face our questions
  • 00:00:23.090 --> 00:00:24.130
  • head on.
  • 00:00:24.130 --> 00:00:25.110
  • It's time to see proof that God
  • 00:00:25.110 --> 00:00:26.200
  • exists.
  • 00:00:26.200 --> 00:00:28.000
  • It's time for "Adventures with
  • 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:29.170
  • - Darren: One of the biggest
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:33.180
  • criticisms I receive for my
  • 00:00:33.180 --> 00:00:34.250
  • films comes from people who
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:36.020
  • think we should do more when we
  • 00:00:36.020 --> 00:00:37.200
  • than simply give them an
  • 00:00:39.210 --> 00:00:40.210
  • encounter with God, then leave
  • 00:00:40.210 --> 00:00:42.160
  • them to their own devices.
  • 00:00:42.160 --> 00:00:44.130
  • Obviously, the nature of where
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:45.230
  • we are and what we're doing for
  • 00:00:45.230 --> 00:00:47.140
  • a particular film play into each
  • 00:00:47.140 --> 00:00:48.260
  • scenario, and sometimes make
  • 00:00:48.260 --> 00:00:50.120
  • anything beyond that impossible.
  • 00:00:50.120 --> 00:00:52.150
  • But I totally understand the
  • 00:00:52.150 --> 00:00:53.170
  • concern because, frankly, I have
  • 00:00:53.170 --> 00:00:55.160
  • it too.
  • 00:00:55.160 --> 00:00:56.190
  • I've asked the question of
  • 00:00:56.190 --> 00:00:58.070
  • myself and almost everyone I
  • 00:00:58.070 --> 00:00:59.170
  • have ever filmed with, what is
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:02.020
  • the value of a one-time
  • 00:01:02.020 --> 00:01:03.140
  • encounter, where follow-up or
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:05.030
  • plugging them into a church or
  • 00:01:05.030 --> 00:01:06.160
  • with fellow believers isn't
  • 00:01:06.160 --> 00:01:08.000
  • possible?
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:08.290
  • Are we simply giving them a
  • 00:01:08.290 --> 00:01:10.100
  • speedbump encounter on their way
  • 00:01:10.100 --> 00:01:11.200
  • to hell, as some have told me?
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:13.240
  • Or is something more at work
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:15.130
  • when God touches someone,
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:17.070
  • regardless of what happens next?
  • 00:01:17.070 --> 00:01:19.140
  • We encountered this issue many
  • 00:01:19.140 --> 00:01:21.000
  • times while I was making my film
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:22.160
  • "Holy Ghost Reborn," and we had
  • 00:01:22.160 --> 00:01:24.130
  • a few remarkable instances while
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:26.060
  • - Darren: So, what's so cool
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:30.270
  • about this, that view is the
  • 00:01:30.270 --> 00:01:33.140
  • same view that Paul saw many,
  • 00:01:33.210 --> 00:01:36.210
  • many times, so that's
  • 00:01:36.210 --> 00:01:38.100
  • pretty--that's pretty cool just
  • 00:01:38.100 --> 00:01:39.240
  • - Andrew Howell: It's like it's
  • 00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:44.070
  • so unbelievable.
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:45.170
  • Dude, do you know how to switch
  • 00:01:45.280 --> 00:01:48.280
  • to slow-mo?
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:49.220
  • On our 6 minutes and call it out
  • 00:01:51.010 --> 00:01:54.010
  • loud there.
  • 00:01:54.010 --> 00:01:55.180
  • Fifty-seven, eight, nine, sixty.
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:59.230
  • And give us a nice two clap.
  • 00:01:59.230 --> 00:02:01.210
  • - Bryan Schwartz: We're in
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:03.030
  • Greece, Athens, Greece, eating
  • 00:02:03.030 --> 00:02:05.090
  • at a restaurant because we went
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:07.090
  • into a store.
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:08.220
  • You led us there, right?
  • 00:02:09.120 --> 00:02:12.120
  • Drew led us there, and we prayed
  • 00:02:12.120 --> 00:02:13.190
  • Alzheimer's.
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:18.100
  • - Bryan: We bless them as a
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:19.060
  • family now in Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:02:19.140 --> 00:02:22.140
  • Amen?
  • 00:02:22.140 --> 00:02:23.150

  • We have a restaurant too.
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:29.050
  • She will show you where it is.
  • 00:02:29.050 --> 00:02:31.030
  • - Bryan: You have a restaurant?

  • You will go there to eat.

  • It's my--for my part, you will
  • 00:02:35.260 --> 00:02:37.180
  • enjoy it.
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:38.120
  • It's very good food.
  • 00:02:38.120 --> 00:02:39.130
  • - Bryan: Very good food.
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:39.290
  • - Bryan: And as a blessing, she

  • restaurant.
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:45.240
  • We got Jimmy helping us out.
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:47.040
  • We got Nicholas, who manages and
  • 00:02:47.040 --> 00:02:49.000
  • owns the place.
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:50.090
  • You know, we're feasting right
  • 00:02:50.090 --> 00:02:51.070
  • now.
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:52.080
  • - Robby Dawkins: In taste--in

  • taste bud form, this is like
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:54.180
  • what heaven invades earth
  • 00:02:54.180 --> 00:02:56.050
  • tastes like.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:58.190
  • - Bryan: Oh, it's so good.
  • 00:03:00.240 --> 00:03:03.240
  • - female: It's really fun.
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:08.020
  • - male: Opa!
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:08.270
  • [plates breaking]
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:12.240
  • - Bryan: But what else can we
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:14.000
  • pray for?
  • 00:03:14.000 --> 00:03:15.080
  • I mean, obviously bless the
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:16.020
  • restaurant.
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:16.260
  • - female: For the [inaudible]

  • - Bryan: Is he the head of the

  • family?
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:23.250
  • - female: He's the head of the

  • family, yes.
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:26.080
  • - Robby: So Father, so Father,

  • - Bryan: [inaudible] healing

  • and delivered you.
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:48.120
  • And we cut off all the previous
  • 00:03:48.120 --> 00:03:49.060
  • generations [inaudible].
  • 00:03:49.060 --> 00:03:51.110
  • We break it off in Jesus' name.
  • 00:03:51.150 --> 00:03:54.150
  • Let your power and your
  • 00:03:54.150 --> 00:03:55.090
  • anointing fill him up.
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:57.200
  • Thank you, Lord.
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:02.290
  • Thank you, Lord.
  • 00:04:04.040 --> 00:04:07.040
  • In Jesus' name, peace.

  • - Robby: In Jesus' name, right
  • 00:04:15.240 --> 00:04:16.210
  • now I just command these calves
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:20.180
  • be completely made whole.
  • 00:04:20.180 --> 00:04:23.040
  • I command [inaudible].
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:25.120
  • All pain get out by the
  • 00:04:25.120 --> 00:04:26.160
  • authority of Christ.
  • 00:04:26.160 --> 00:04:28.110
  • - Bryan: Tell her what just
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:30.020
  • happened.
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:31.080
  • - male: So, we went to dinner,
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:33.000
  • and a revival broke out.
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:35.010
  • - Aaron Rich: The first fallout
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:36.170
  • - Robby: People encountering
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:41.260
  • the healing power of Jesus
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:43.220
  • Christ, people being healed in
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:45.200
  • their bodies, feeling the
  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:46.290
  • manifest presence of God.
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:48.150
  • God becomes real.
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:50.090
  • It draws them into a desire to
  • 00:04:50.090 --> 00:04:52.150
  • know him.
  • 00:04:52.150 --> 00:04:54.000
  • You know, knowing about my wife
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:56.120
  • was wonderful and great.
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:58.130
  • But when I encountered her, when
  • 00:04:58.130 --> 00:05:01.030
  • all of a sudden I was in her
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:02.070
  • presence, there was real
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:03.060
  • presence, there's nothing,
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:05.090
  • nothing that takes the place of
  • 00:05:05.090 --> 00:05:07.110
  • presence.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:08.110
  • - Bryan: I know my whole life
  • 00:05:08.110 --> 00:05:09.110
  • for 23 years before I
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:10.040
  • encountered Christ and
  • 00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:11.060
  • encountered the Holy Spirit, I
  • 00:05:11.060 --> 00:05:12.250
  • was searching for identity, I
  • 00:05:12.250 --> 00:05:14.200
  • was searching for purpose.
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:16.010
  • And in the Scriptures, even
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:17.160
  • Romans 8, it declares the Holy
  • 00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:18.260
  • Spirit's been--he's been given
  • 00:05:18.260 --> 00:05:20.110
  • to us to actually convince us
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:22.180
  • to--the word they use in the
  • 00:05:22.180 --> 00:05:24.070
  • Scriptures is testify.
  • 00:05:24.070 --> 00:05:25.150
  • And that means to bring all the
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:26.120
  • evidence, all the supporting
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:27.180
  • evidence that you are a son.
  • 00:05:27.180 --> 00:05:29.260
  • And I believe the Holy Spirit
  • 00:05:29.260 --> 00:05:31.080
  • for many, many people, it's the
  • 00:05:31.080 --> 00:05:33.210
  • conviction that we are actually
  • 00:05:33.210 --> 00:05:35.070
  • sons.
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:35.250
  • We have identity, that we're not
  • 00:05:35.250 --> 00:05:36.230
  • orphans, that we're not--we
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:37.230
  • don't have to beat ourselves up
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:39.100
  • and condemn ourselves.
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:40.260
  • And I believe that does quench
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:42.170
  • or grieve the Spirit of God
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:43.270
  • pretty intensely when we don't
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:46.010
  • believe and trust what he's
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:48.170
  • telling us.
  • 00:05:48.170 --> 00:05:49.110
  • Not just with the risk-taking,
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:50.230
  • not just with that, but actually
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:51.200
  • convicting us of the Father's
  • 00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:53.040
  • - Darren: What we're looking at
  • 00:05:56.010 --> 00:05:56.220
  • here is the question of, what's
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:58.110
  • the point of one-time God
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:06:00.230
  • encounters when there's not any
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:02.150
  • follow-up?
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:03.140
  • Like, I'd love to talk to you
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:04.090
  • guys, like let's--because I want
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:06.250
  • us to--I've got, like, obviously
  • 00:06:06.250 --> 00:06:07.290
  • my own questions and things that
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.020
  • people have kind of, like,
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:09.270
  • levied against me after watching
  • 00:06:09.270 --> 00:06:12.030
  • the film.
  • 00:06:12.030 --> 00:06:12.240
  • But for guys who do it a lot,
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:14.050
  • I'm curious to see, like, what
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:16.010
  • are some of--what's some of the
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.020
  • pushback you guys have gotten?
  • 00:06:17.020 --> 00:06:18.170
  • What are some of the things that
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:19.240
  • people will say to you when they
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:22.040
  • say--when they're kind of--when
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:24.100
  • they hear about what you're
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:25.010
  • doing or that kind of thing in
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:26.100
  • regards to this?
  • 00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:27.220
  • What are, like, some of the
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:28.230
  • problems that people have with
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:29.150
  • it?
  • 00:06:29.150 --> 00:06:30.270
  • - Jamie Galloway: I find that
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.020
  • so many people assume that
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:35.070
  • there's--you know, there's--one,
  • 00:06:35.070 --> 00:06:37.070
  • they'll assume that there's no
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:39.100
  • follow-up.
  • 00:06:39.100 --> 00:06:40.100
  • You know, so they make the
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:41.170
  • assumption that that person's
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:42.200
  • not going to connect with
  • 00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:43.160
  • someone else.
  • 00:06:43.160 --> 00:06:44.140
  • And so, you know, knowing from
  • 00:06:44.140 --> 00:06:45.250
  • their perspective, they'll kind
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:48.110
  • of attack the moment and say,
  • 00:06:49.050 --> 00:06:52.050
  • you know, "How could you do that
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:53.110
  • when you don't have a plan B, C,
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:56.280
  • D, you know?"
  • 00:06:56.280 --> 00:06:57.280
  • And so, they'll attack the
  • 00:06:57.280 --> 00:06:59.130
  • moment and kind of invalidate
  • 00:06:59.130 --> 00:07:00.110
  • it.
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:01.180
  • At the same time, they're, you
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:02.200
  • know, mystified and trying to
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:05.220
  • understand, you know, how this
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:08.150
  • God encounter took place.
  • 00:07:08.150 --> 00:07:09.230
  • So, what I find is, at the same
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:11.280
  • time, they're also trying to
  • 00:07:11.280 --> 00:07:13.160
  • challenge it.
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:14.140
  • They want to learn.
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:15.240
  • You know, people want to learn.
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:16.210
  • And so, it's kind of you have to
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:18.090
  • wade through those waters when
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:20.080
  • they ask you those questions
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:22.120
  • because often, in the midst of
  • 00:07:22.120 --> 00:07:25.020
  • the skepticism, they actually
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:26.120
  • want to learn.
  • 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:28.230
  • - Robby: What I've learned is
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:29.230
  • this.
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:30.220
  • God will look after the seed.
  • 00:07:30.220 --> 00:07:32.140
  • It's his seed, and he'll look
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:34.130
  • after it.
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:35.220
  • And all the--I've got hundreds
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:39.060
  • of emails of people who weren't
  • 00:07:39.060 --> 00:07:41.270
  • on these films, who weren't on
  • 00:07:41.270 --> 00:07:43.140
  • any other documentaries or any
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:44.280
  • other things that I've been a
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.030
  • part of, that have emailed back,
  • 00:07:46.090 --> 00:07:49.090
  • "Hey, I met you in a grocery
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:51.170
  • store.
  • 00:07:51.170 --> 00:07:52.110
  • You prayed for me there.
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:54.050
  • You told me Jesus was inviting
  • 00:07:54.050 --> 00:07:56.260
  • me to a relationship.
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:58.020
  • I accepted.
  • 00:07:58.020 --> 00:07:58.290
  • Now here--" And literally ones
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.290
  • like, "I'm a youth pastor now,
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:02.190
  • and I just found you, wanted to
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:04.240
  • let you know."
  • 00:08:04.240 --> 00:08:05.230
  • Over and over and over and over
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:08.140
  • again, years later hearing back.
  • 00:08:09.060 --> 00:08:12.060
  • If we can just get, you know,
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:14.140
  • every believer praying for the
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:16.230
  • sick to be healed, sharing the
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:18.220
  • gospel of Jesus Christ, inviting
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:20.140
  • people into relationship, if we
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:21.220
  • get to do that, this thing of
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:23.230
  • the kingdom would expand, and
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:25.170
  • God will look after that.
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:26.250
  • Because inevitably with those
  • 00:08:26.250 --> 00:08:29.090
  • people who wrote me those
  • 00:08:29.090 --> 00:08:30.080
  • emails, they've followed up
  • 00:08:30.080 --> 00:08:31.110
  • with, "And after you prayed for
  • 00:08:31.110 --> 00:08:34.000
  • me, I was healed.
  • 00:08:34.000 --> 00:08:35.030
  • After I gave my life to Jesus, I
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:38.010
  • ran into this pastor, or I had a
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.200
  • family member who told me that I
  • 00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:41.240
  • should come with them to
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:42.190
  • church."
  • 00:08:42.190 --> 00:08:43.130
  • And it's always been out of
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:45.030
  • relationship, versus me who's
  • 00:08:45.170 --> 00:08:48.170
  • coming in with no relationship,
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:50.130
  • just making an introduction.
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:51.280
  • But there's always something
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:53.070
  • that crosses their path, that
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:55.000
  • draws them into something that
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:57.020
  • they--where they could really go
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:58.180
  • - male: Where are we?
  • 00:09:00.270 --> 00:09:01.230
  • - Robby: Paul's gate.
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:02.270
  • This is where Paul entered
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:04.160
  • Thessalonica.
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:06.070
  • - male: And this is where he
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:07.040
  • preached.
  • 00:09:07.040 --> 00:09:07.270
  • He first preached in the--
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:08.180
  • - Robby: Where he first
  • 00:09:08.180 --> 00:09:09.080
  • preached.
  • 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:10.060
  • We are about to blow it up.
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:12.120
  • - male: And what did he say to
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:13.030
  • the Thessalonians?
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:13.210
  • What did he say to the
  • 00:09:13.210 --> 00:09:14.180
  • Thessalonians?
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:16.050
  • - Robby: He said, "I did not
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:16.250
  • come to you with
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:17.210
  • words--excellent words of man's
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:19.010
  • wisdom, but with a demonstration
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:21.090
  • of power."
  • 00:09:21.090 --> 00:09:24.030
  • - male: So, that was his gate.
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:25.030
  • - Robby: This is it.
  • 00:09:25.030 --> 00:09:26.000
  • - male: And you're about to
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:26.270
  • preach there.
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:27.200
  • You're about to get some--get
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:28.280
  • your swerve on here, get your
  • 00:09:28.280 --> 00:09:30.220
  • power on.
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:31.160
  • You excited?
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:32.150
  • Is this, like, your love
  • 00:09:32.150 --> 00:09:33.270
  • language right here?
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:35.210
  • - Robby: This is my love
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:36.070
  • - male: All right, let's see
  • 00:09:38.070 --> 00:09:39.270
  • what happens.
  • 00:09:39.270 --> 00:09:40.280
  • - Robby: Right there?
  • 00:09:40.280 --> 00:09:42.230
  • - female: Yes.
  • 00:09:42.230 --> 00:09:43.170
  • - Robby: So you're--okay, if
  • 00:09:43.170 --> 00:09:44.230
  • you're feeling pain, like is it
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:48.210
  • right in here, in the lower
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:50.100
  • part?
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:51.020
  • Okay.
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:52.140
  • So, if the pain you're

  • feeling--listen, I'm going to be

  • completely honest with you.
  • 00:09:54.090 --> 00:09:55.040
  • What was your name?
  • 00:09:55.040 --> 00:09:55.220
  • - female: Lisa.
  • 00:09:55.220 --> 00:09:56.180
  • - Robby: Lisa, I'm sorry.
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:57.130
  • So, if the pain that you are
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:09:58.090
  • feeling, if that's a--is there
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:09:59.210
  • any pain up in here too, or is
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:01.110
  • it just back there?
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:02.110
  • - female: Just there.
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:03.100
  • - Robby: Just the lower back.
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:04.100
  • Okay, if the pain if you're
  • 00:10:04.100 --> 00:10:05.190
  • feeling is a ten when you just
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:07.240
  • checked it, if that's ten and
  • 00:10:07.240 --> 00:10:09.260
  • zero is no pain, okay, but what
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:12.150

  • - female: Yeah.
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:20.270
  • - Robby: You're having pain in
  • 00:10:20.270 --> 00:10:21.180
  • your feet too?
  • 00:10:21.180 --> 00:10:22.100

  • Are you feeling any heat back

  • there?
  • 00:10:55.050 --> 00:10:55.270
  • - female: Yes.
  • 00:10:55.270 --> 00:10:56.200
  • - Robby: I could feel that
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:57.110
  • because my hand's getting hot.
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:58.040
  • In Jesus' name.
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:11:00.140
  • Now, do me a favor, now just
  • 00:11:00.140 --> 00:11:03.050

  • your back again.

  • Now listen, don't be nice to me,
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:08.050
  • tell me the truth.
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:09.120
  • If it was at a ten before--move
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:11.040
  • really good, check it really,
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:12.070
  • really good.
  • 00:11:12.070 --> 00:11:13.050
  • Step up just a little bit so we
  • 00:11:13.050 --> 00:11:14.010
  • don't have to--like, if you were
  • 00:11:14.010 --> 00:11:15.060
  • feeling--if it was a ten before
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:17.220
  • and zero is no pain, where is it
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:19.020
  • at now?
  • 00:11:19.020 --> 00:11:19.260
  • - female: Yes, no pain.
  • 00:11:19.260 --> 00:11:20.190
  • - Robby: Zero?
  • 00:11:20.190 --> 00:11:21.170
  • - female: Yes.
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:22.080
  • - Robby: It's a zero.
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:23.100
  • And what about in your feet?
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:24.090
  • Is it--is there a particular
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:26.040
  • problem?
  • 00:11:26.040 --> 00:11:26.240
  • What about in your hips too?
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.110
  • Because I was feeling--any pain
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:30.130
  • at all?
  • 00:11:30.130 --> 00:11:31.030
  • - female: Yeah.
  • 00:11:31.030 --> 00:11:32.020
  • - Robby: What does that mean?
  • 00:11:32.020 --> 00:11:32.290
  • - female: No pain.
  • 00:11:32.290 --> 00:11:34.200
  • - Robby: No pain?
  • 00:11:34.200 --> 00:11:35.140
  • Zero?
  • 00:11:35.140 --> 00:11:36.110
  • - female: Zero.
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:37.170
  • - Robby: Zero.
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:38.220
  • Praise the Lord.

  • Praise Jesus.
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:41.050
  • - female: Thank you.
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:43.050
  • - Robby: Praise the Lord.
  • 00:11:43.050 --> 00:11:44.140
  • Awesome, man.
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.280
  • Jesus just healed this lady's
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:47.270
  • back.
  • 00:11:47.270 --> 00:11:48.200
  • If anybody needs healing, right
  • 00:11:48.200 --> 00:11:50.000
  • now he'll heal your body right
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:51.190
  • now.

  • He's here, he'll heal you.
  • 00:11:53.040 --> 00:11:56.040
  • - Robby: There's nothing,
  • 00:11:56.040 --> 00:11:57.050
  • nothing that takes the place of
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.290
  • presence.
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:11:59.260
  • And encountering him,
  • 00:11:59.260 --> 00:12:01.150
  • encountering the reality of who
  • 00:12:01.150 --> 00:12:02.240
  • he is, when all of a sudden he's
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:03.270
  • there and tangible for healing
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:05.010
  • the sick, transforming lives,
  • 00:12:05.010 --> 00:12:07.180
  • feeling the power and the
  • 00:12:07.180 --> 00:12:08.240
  • presence of God, I mean, that
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:10.080
  • was Jesus' form of evangelism.
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:13.150
  • - Bryan: Dude, when we--when
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:15.140
  • they thought we wanted to pray
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:16.290
  • for them, they had this picture
  • 00:12:16.290 --> 00:12:19.000
  • that they would have to all hold
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:20.100
  • hands and do this weird, creepy
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:22.120
  • thing.
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:24.150
  • It was awesome, Alberto came and

  • shared his story.
  • 00:12:25.190 --> 00:12:27.000
  • Here we go.
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:29.240
  • - Robby: Who's this lady?
  • 00:12:29.240 --> 00:12:31.030
  • Do you speak English?
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:32.050
  • - female: No.
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:33.060
  • - Robby: Do you have pain?
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:34.040
  • It hurt?
  • 00:12:34.040 --> 00:12:35.100

  • Now?
  • 00:12:51.030 --> 00:12:52.110
  • Ahh.

  • - female: Energy?
  • 00:13:27.250 --> 00:13:29.060
  • Energy?
  • 00:13:29.060 --> 00:13:29.270
  • - Robby: Energy?

  • You feeling energy?
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.210

  • It's better?
  • 00:14:00.210 --> 00:14:01.220
  • Oh, pull back?
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:03.170

  • Is it better or the same?
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:19.230
  • - female: I don't know.
  • 00:14:20.280 --> 00:14:23.280
  • - Robby: English, know how to
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:24.280
  • say.
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:27.000
  • Is it good or more, less?
  • 00:14:30.030 --> 00:14:33.030
  • No, is it better?
  • 00:14:33.050 --> 00:14:36.050
  • Okay, all the way, Jesus' name,
  • 00:14:36.160 --> 00:14:39.160
  • amen.
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:40.040
  • Bless you.
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:40.270
  • - female: Thank you.
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:42.120
  • - Robby: Man, we need the
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:43.050
  • language.
  • 00:14:43.050 --> 00:14:44.140
  • It would be great if we had your
  • 00:14:44.140 --> 00:14:45.110
  • buddy up here, man, whew.
  • 00:14:45.110 --> 00:14:47.040
  • Look behind--see this guy here?
  • 00:14:48.250 --> 00:14:51.250
  • See the movie camera?
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:52.280
  • See him behind you, the camera
  • 00:14:52.280 --> 00:14:54.190
  • there?
  • 00:14:54.190 --> 00:14:55.180
  • It's better?
  • 00:14:55.180 --> 00:14:57.160
  • - female: She wanted--what did
  • 00:14:57.160 --> 00:14:59.110
  • you do with her hand?
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:01.080
  • - Bryan: We prayed.
  • 00:15:01.080 --> 00:15:02.090
  • - female: You prayed?
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:03.010
  • - Bryan: We prayed.
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:04.050
  • We asked--prayed to God.
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:06.090
  • Prayed to God.
  • 00:15:07.170 --> 00:15:10.170
  • We just prayed.
  • 00:15:10.170 --> 00:15:11.080
  • How is it?
  • 00:15:11.080 --> 00:15:11.280
  • Is it better?
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:12.190
  • - female: Yes.
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:13.180
  • - Bryan: All the way better?
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:14.080
  • So, it's all the way better?
  • 00:15:15.270 --> 00:15:18.270
  • - Robby: I release to you, to
  • 00:15:18.270 --> 00:15:21.050
  • your back, your neck the peace
  • 00:15:21.120 --> 00:15:24.120
  • of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:27.140
  • I release the peace of Jesus
  • 00:15:27.140 --> 00:15:29.220
  • - Chad Norris: The word
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:35.140
  • "euaggelion" means good news.
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:39.030
  • So, what's the good news?
  • 00:15:39.030 --> 00:15:40.010
  • God loves broken people.
  • 00:15:40.010 --> 00:15:42.120
  • And when some people have an
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:43.230
  • encounter--matter of fact, you
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:45.030
  • see Jesus, when he performs his
  • 00:15:45.030 --> 00:15:46.250
  • miracles, he would proclaim the
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:50.130
  • message of the kingdom, and he
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:51.290
  • would speak good news.
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:53.170
  • "You've heard it said, but I
  • 00:15:53.170 --> 00:15:55.040
  • say," this whole change the way
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:56.150
  • you think.
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:57.090
  • And as he's speaking good news,
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:58.160
  • then he would deliver the
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:15:59.190
  • encounter.
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:00.160
  • I think they're both hand in
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:01.220
  • hand, biblically speaking and
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:03.130
  • what I've seen played out.
  • 00:16:03.130 --> 00:16:04.190
  • Because a lot of people that are
  • 00:16:04.190 --> 00:16:05.220
  • asking that question, it's more
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:07.120
  • about getting someone to make a
  • 00:16:07.120 --> 00:16:08.190
  • decision.
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:09.090
  • There's no kindness in it.
  • 00:16:09.090 --> 00:16:10.070
  • They really don't even care
  • 00:16:10.070 --> 00:16:10.240
  • about the person.
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:11.240
  • I used to be in that camp.
  • 00:16:11.240 --> 00:16:13.070
  • - Darren: That's what I wanted
  • 00:16:13.070 --> 00:16:13.280
  • to ask you about is, like, go to
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:15.260
  • old Chad.
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:16.290
  • - Chad: That was me.
  • 00:16:16.290 --> 00:16:17.290
  • - Darren: What were you--when
  • 00:16:17.290 --> 00:16:19.210
  • you--if you would have looked at
  • 00:16:19.210 --> 00:16:20.170
  • this stuff back then, what would
  • 00:16:20.170 --> 00:16:22.100
  • your objection have been?
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:23.170
  • - Chad: My objection to these
  • 00:16:23.170 --> 00:16:26.130
  • three guys would be, so what's
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:27.240
  • the point?
  • 00:16:27.240 --> 00:16:28.210
  • Do they get saved or not?
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:30.120
  • It's laced with
  • 00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:32.180
  • self-righteousness, and it's
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:34.160
  • measurable.
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:35.170
  • And so, since God is a
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:37.050
  • Republican American, we need to
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:38.110
  • measure everything, and that's
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:40.060
  • what we need to do.
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:41.080
  • And then what happened was when
  • 00:16:41.080 --> 00:16:42.140
  • I had my encounter with the Lord
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:43.220
  • and fell in love with him.
  • 00:16:43.220 --> 00:16:44.220
  • Hey, listen man, when I saw a
  • 00:16:44.220 --> 00:16:46.250
  • man healed of emphysema with
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:48.230
  • cigarettes in his pockets, and
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:50.030
  • the Lord didn't tell him to get
  • 00:16:50.030 --> 00:16:50.290
  • rid of them, it blew my mind.
  • 00:16:50.290 --> 00:16:52.130
  • Of course--of course God
  • 00:16:52.130 --> 00:16:54.260
  • wants--the Father wants people
  • 00:16:54.260 --> 00:16:56.090
  • to say yes to his Son Jesus
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:57.090
  • Christ, but he's so good, I have
  • 00:16:57.090 --> 00:16:59.120
  • seen him heal people and they
  • 00:16:59.120 --> 00:17:01.000
  • still don't come to him, and he
  • 00:17:01.000 --> 00:17:03.100
  • still loves them.
  • 00:17:03.100 --> 00:17:04.140
  • Whenever a decision trumps a
  • 00:17:04.140 --> 00:17:06.160
  • baseline of love, we're just
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:08.060
  • legislating morality.
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:09.220
  • And it's religious, and it's
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:11.130
  • gross.
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:12.100
  • - Bryan: Yeah, I just was
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:13.210
  • thinking with--I've got seven
  • 00:17:13.210 --> 00:17:16.090
  • kids.
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:17.140
  • And the goal for me as a parent
  • 00:17:17.140 --> 00:17:20.040
  • is not to get them to pray a
  • 00:17:20.040 --> 00:17:21.160
  • sinner's prayer.
  • 00:17:21.160 --> 00:17:22.240
  • - Robby: Come on.
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:23.250
  • - Bryan: It's--the goal is to
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:25.200
  • see my 20-year-old all the way
  • 00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:26.280
  • down to my 7-year-old come to
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:28.150
  • know Jesus.
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:29.270
  • And some have come at 12, some
  • 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:32.240
  • have come at 5, some have come
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:35.080
  • older and younger.
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:36.160
  • And I am--honestly, as a pastor,
  • 00:17:37.000 --> 00:17:40.000
  • I started counseling these
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:41.030
  • teenagers that got brought up in
  • 00:17:41.030 --> 00:17:42.120
  • church, and their goal of the
  • 00:17:42.120 --> 00:17:43.240
  • parents was to get them to pray
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:44.220
  • a sinner's prayer, not have
  • 00:17:44.220 --> 00:17:45.220
  • relationship.
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:47.140
  • And then they get born again.
  • 00:17:47.140 --> 00:17:49.150
  • You know, but a parent thought
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:51.000
  • because they prayed some
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.040
  • prayer--like with my kids,
  • 00:17:52.040 --> 00:17:54.140
  • they're all growing at different
  • 00:17:54.140 --> 00:17:56.000
  • paces.
  • 00:17:56.000 --> 00:17:57.260
  • And my goal is to do my best to
  • 00:17:57.260 --> 00:18:00.120
  • sow, and pour, and provide the
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:02.140
  • right soil content, and all
  • 00:18:02.140 --> 00:18:04.150
  • that.
  • 00:18:04.150 --> 00:18:05.100
  • But at the end of the day,
  • 00:18:05.100 --> 00:18:06.020
  • they're going to--they're going
  • 00:18:06.020 --> 00:18:07.010
  • to have an encounter with Jesus.
  • 00:18:07.010 --> 00:18:08.150
  • And the point of the encounter
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:09.140
  • for me is both an introduction
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:11.220
  • sometimes.
  • 00:18:11.220 --> 00:18:12.240
  • Sometimes, it's salvation.
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:14.080
  • Sometimes, it's healing.
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:15.210
  • But I think it's an invitation
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:17.120
  • and an introduction to who the
  • 00:18:17.120 --> 00:18:19.210
  • Father is.
  • 00:18:19.210 --> 00:18:21.010
  • - Darren: And I think you--and
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:21.260
  • you, you know with your
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:22.270
  • children, you know where they're
  • 00:18:22.270 --> 00:18:24.040
  • at.
  • 00:18:24.040 --> 00:18:24.240
  • You know where they are in their
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:25.160
  • journey.
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:26.140
  • But when you're dealing with
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:27.060
  • somebody you have no clue, only
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:29.020
  • the Father knows where they're
  • 00:18:29.020 --> 00:18:30.000
  • at in their journey.
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:31.040
  • And it really boils down at that
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:32.140
  • point just to be obedient.
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:33.290
  • Because he's going to use you
  • 00:18:33.290 --> 00:18:35.060
  • for that moment in their
  • 00:18:35.060 --> 00:18:36.230
  • journey.
  • 00:18:36.230 --> 00:18:37.210
  • And I'm more concerned about
  • 00:18:37.210 --> 00:18:39.100
  • actually screwing up what God's
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:40.210
  • trying to do.
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:41.280
  • - Chad: And the other side of
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:42.220
  • the ditch for charismatics is
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:44.010
  • being more concerned about the
  • 00:18:44.010 --> 00:18:45.110
  • encounter than you are about the
  • 00:18:45.110 --> 00:18:47.030
  • person.
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:48.030
  • Whether you're trying to get
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:48.250
  • them born again or whether
  • 00:18:48.250 --> 00:18:49.250
  • you're trying to get them in the
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:50.270
  • encounter, if you don't love the
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.200
  • person that's in front of you,
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:53.260
  • the Lord's like, "What are you
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:54.250
  • - Darren: An invisible God can
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.000
  • invade our dreams whenever he
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:18:59.130
  • wants.
  • 00:18:59.130 --> 00:19:00.220
  • But for some reason, he prefers
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:02.060
  • for us to reach out to each
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:03.190
  • other, one child introducing
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:06.030
  • another child to the father they
  • 00:19:06.030 --> 00:19:07.220
  • never knew they had.
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:10.050
  • And when we put ourselves in the
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:11.060
  • position to be used as agents of
  • 00:19:11.060 --> 00:19:12.150
  • love, Jesus is able to do things
  • 00:19:12.160 --> 00:19:15.160
  • the way he always intended.
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:18.100
  • We went to Aristotle Square in
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:19.230
  • Thessaloniki, where we began
  • 00:19:19.230 --> 00:19:21.110
  • praying for people under the
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:22.190
  • watchful eye of the patron saint
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:24.200
  • of logic and reason.
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:27.060
  • - male: On this, the arms is
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:29.180
  • getting a high [inaudible].
  • 00:19:30.140 --> 00:19:33.140
  • - Bryan: You can't raise it
  • 00:19:33.140 --> 00:19:34.110
  • higher?
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:35.090
  • - female: I can, but--
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:36.130
  • - Robby: It hurts.
  • 00:19:36.130 --> 00:19:37.230
  • - male: The shoulder.
  • 00:19:37.230 --> 00:19:38.150
  • - Robby: Do you mind standing
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:39.280
  • up?
  • 00:19:39.280 --> 00:19:40.230
  • - Bryan: Yes, would you mind
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:41.120
  • standing?
  • 00:19:41.120 --> 00:19:43.000
  • - Robby: Go ahead.
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:43.200
  • - Bryan: We'll pray for you,
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:44.290

  • me where the pain hurts the
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:52.130
  • most?
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:53.290
  • - Robby: When you lift it,
  • 00:19:53.290 --> 00:19:54.180
  • where it hits the most.
  • 00:19:54.180 --> 00:19:55.290

  • 00:28:02.170 --> 00:28:03.230
  • kid, and picking him up, and
  • 00:28:03.230 --> 00:28:06.060

  • some, but I believe most
  • 00:28:10.180 --> 00:28:13.060
  • people--all of us are looking
  • 00:28:13.060 --> 00:28:14.230
  • for affirmation and affection.
  • 00:28:14.230 --> 00:28:16.200
  • And the Holy Spirit is the one
  • 00:28:16.200 --> 00:28:17.290
  • that allows us to experience the
  • 00:28:17.290 --> 00:28:20.190
  • affection and the love, the
  • 00:28:20.190 --> 00:28:22.160

  • his kids.
  • 00:28:24.130 --> 00:28:25.160
  • It's the difference between
  • 00:28:25.160 --> 00:28:26.070
  • walking with somebody and
  • 00:28:26.070 --> 00:28:27.100
  • actually picking them up off the

  • I mean, when you do that with a

  • young kid, they're trusting you.
  • 00:28:32.040 --> 00:28:34.270
  • And I believe the Holy Spirit
  • 00:28:34.270 --> 00:28:36.010
  • connects all those dots, brings
  • 00:28:36.010 --> 00:28:38.100
  • the love of the Father to the

  • center place in our lives, and

  • makes us nervous about one-time
  • 00:28:50.010 --> 00:28:51.180
  • encounters with God is that we
  • 00:28:51.180 --> 00:28:53.010
  • don't really trust that God is
  • 00:28:53.010 --> 00:28:54.280
  • who he says he is.
  • 00:28:54.280 --> 00:28:57.050
  • When I read the Bible, I see a
  • 00:28:57.050 --> 00:28:58.130
  • God who, throughout history, has
  • 00:28:58.130 --> 00:29:00.240
  • shown a habit of chasing after
  • 00:29:00.240 --> 00:29:02.050
  • people, of giving them chances
  • 00:29:02.050 --> 00:29:04.030
  • to engage with him, and who is
  • 00:29:04.030 --> 00:29:05.260
  • full of grace and patience.
  • 00:29:05.260 --> 00:29:08.050
  • Would I love to see everyone we
  • 00:29:08.050 --> 00:29:10.050
  • touch rush straight to a

  • healthy, vibrant church

  • afterwards?
  • 00:29:12.160 --> 00:29:13.140
  • Of course.
  • 00:29:13.140 --> 00:29:14.280
  • But if that doesn't happen, at
  • 00:29:14.280 --> 00:29:16.200
  • least I can know that we played
  • 00:29:16.200 --> 00:29:18.130
