  • 00:16:57.040 --> 00:16:59.190
  • DEATH SO HE COULD RISE FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:16:59.210 --> 00:17:01.260
  • CONQUERING THE GRAVE.
  • 00:17:01.280 --> 00:17:04.220
  • AND THAT ONE DAY MY DAUGHTER'S BODY IS GOING
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:06.260
  • TO RISE FROM THE GRAVE IMMORTAL TO NEVER BE
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:09.030
  • TAKEN FROM US AGAIN.
  • 00:17:09.050 --> 00:17:11.150
  • AND SO WHEN I LET THE ANGER THAT GOD
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:14.100
  • EXPERIENCED COURSE THROUGH ME IN THAT WAY,
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:17.070
  • IT CHANGED EVERYTHING IN HOW I LOOKED AT IT.
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:19.190
  • NOT THAT IT TAKES AWAY THE SADNESS.
  • 00:17:19.210 --> 00:17:22.130
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HELPED ME, MATT,
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:25.070
  • BECAUSE REMEMBERING AND REALIZING IS THAT HURTING
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:27.140
  • WITH HOPE STILL HURTS.
  • 00:17:27.160 --> 00:17:29.230
  • I THINK SOMETIMES AS CHRISTIANS WE DO A
  • 00:17:29.250 --> 00:17:31.270
  • DISSERVICE BY KIND OF MAKING PEOPLE FEEL AS
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:34.010
  • THOUGH IT'S UNSPIRITUAL TO BE IN PAIN OR IT'S
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:35.240
  • UNSPIRITUAL TO SHOW HURT WHEN JESUS WEPT,
  • 00:17:35.260 --> 00:17:38.030
  • SO WHY CAN'T WE?
  • 00:17:38.050 --> 00:17:40.140
  • AND SO HURTING WITH HOPE STILL HURTS.
  • 00:17:40.160 --> 00:17:43.020
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE IT LESS SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:45.050
  • IT'S JUST AS SPIRITING, JUST AS FAITH FILLED TO
  • 00:17:45.070 --> 00:17:47.220
  • WEEP AND TO CRY AND TO BE SAD, TO NOT FIGHT THAT
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:50.280
  • BECAUSE LIKE YOU SAID, GRIEF IS A POWERFUL THING
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.280
  • AND IT'S GOING TO DO SOMETHING INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:17:53.000 --> 00:17:55.220

  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:58.210

  • DAUGHTER GOING TO HEAVEN TO BE TAKEN FROM ME.
  • 00:18:12.010 --> 00:18:14.070
  • HE'S TAUGHT ME SO MUCH BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:16.090
  • GOD'S NEAR TO THE BROKEN HEARTED, AND I THINK
  • 00:18:16.110 --> 00:18:18.100
  • THAT'S WHAT PAUL BILLHEIMER WAS SAYING

  • THAT IT'S A GREAT HONOR TO BE TRUSTED WITH PAIN.

  • - WELL, SINCE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:25.250
  • THAT ARE HURTING SO DEEPLY, I DON'T FEEL THAT
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:28.240

  • 00:18:39.020 --> 00:18:40.230
  • I WENT THROUGH, BUT I REALIZED THE OTHER DAY I

  • DON'T REALLY SAY THAT MUCH ABOUT MY FIRST MARRIAGE.
  • 00:18:42.280 --> 00:18:45.120
  • AND SEE, WHEN I WAS 18 I MARRIED THE FIRST GUY
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:47.230
  • THAT CAME ALONG BECAUSE I THOUGHT NOBODY WOULD EVER
  • 00:18:47.250 --> 00:18:49.170

  • AND SO WHEN A PERSON IS IN A STATE OF DEEPLY
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:19:02.040
  • WOUNDED EMOTIONS, IT'S USUALLY NOT THE BEST TIME
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:04.250

  • BEFORE YOU DO THAT.
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:13.240
  • ANYWAY, I MARRIED A GUY THAT HAD MORE PROBLEMS

  • I COULD BRING EVERYTHING.
  • 00:35:29.060 --> 00:35:30.210
  • JESUS, IF YOU'RE REAL, TAKE THIS STUFF FROM ME.
  • 00:35:30.230 --> 00:35:32.100
  • GIVE ME A NEW LIFE, AND IF YOU DO, I WILL FOLLOW YOU,
  • 00:35:32.120 --> 00:35:35.190
  • AND THAT'S WHAT HE DID.

  • INSIDE OF YOUR LIFE AND LIVES IN THERE.
  • 00:35:53.040 --> 00:35:55.210
  • IT'S A FUNNY THING.
  • 00:35:55.230 --> 00:35:57.070
  • IT'S ACTUALLY THE TRUTH, AND I'M LIVING PROOF, MAN.
  • 00:35:57.090 --> 00:36:01.040
  • I MEAN, THERE'S MANY BESIDES ME, BUT I WAS IN
  • 00:36:01.060 --> 00:36:03.260
  • THE GUTTER, AND HE CAME IN, AND HE RESURRECTED
  • 00:36:03.280 --> 00:36:06.000

  • IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:36:54.180 --> 00:36:55.290
  • MY FATHER PASSED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, MY MOTHER
  • 00:36:56.010 --> 00:36:58.030
  • THIS WEEK WE'RE CONDUCTING THIS INTERVIEW, AND THAT
  • 00:36:58.050 --> 00:37:04.090
  • MEANS THAT THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF
  • 00:37:04.110 --> 00:37:09.290
  • TRINITY BROADCASTING NETWORK, ITS 30 SOME
  • 00:37:10.010 --> 00:37:12.230
  • NETWORKS AROUND THE WORLD 24 HOURS A DAY, AND THE
  • 00:37:12.250 --> 00:37:16.290
  • VISION, I WANT SOME ADVICE FROM YOU,
  • 00:37:17.010 --> 00:37:21.050
  • SO THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.
  • 00:37:21.070 --> 00:37:22.270
  • SO THIS IS LIKE A COUNSELING SESSION
  • 00:37:22.290 --> 00:37:24.110
  • FOR US, OKAY?
  • 00:37:24.130 --> 00:37:26.030
  • I INTERVIEWED MY DAD FOUR OR FIVE YEARS AGO, AND
  • 00:37:26.050 --> 00:37:32.030
  • LOOK, HE HAD STARTED WITH ONE LITTLE CHANNEL.
  • 00:37:32.050 --> 00:37:37.040
  • LOOKING AT YOU, REMINDS ME VERY MUCH OF
  • 00:37:37.060 --> 00:37:40.160
  • MY OWN FATHER.
  • 00:37:40.180 --> 00:37:42.150
  • THE BEGINNINGS AND THE STRUGGLES AND THE STRAINS
  • 00:37:42.170 --> 00:37:47.050
  • ARE ALMOST KIND OF SIMILAR RAILROAD TRACKS.
  • 00:37:47.070 --> 00:37:51.140
  • I ASKED HIM SOMEWHAT THE SAME QUESTION.
  • 00:37:51.160 --> 00:37:55.190
  • I SAID, DAD, WHAT ONE PHRASE OR WHAT ONE
  • 00:37:55.210 --> 00:37:59.030
  • SENTIMENT KIND OF GETS CONJURED UP WHEN I LOOK
  • 00:37:59.050 --> 00:38:02.040
  • BACK OVER ALL OF THESE YEARS NOW THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:38:02.060 --> 00:38:04.280
  • IN YOUR LATE 70s?
  • 00:38:05.000 --> 00:38:07.150
  • AND WITHOUT REAL HESITATION, HE JUST KIND
  • 00:38:07.170 --> 00:38:10.110
  • OF BLURTED OUT ONE WORD "CHALLENGE".
  • 00:38:10.130 --> 00:38:16.120
  • AND THAT WORD KIND OF STUCK WITH HIM.
  • 00:38:16.140 --> 00:38:18.260
  • THEN I ASKED MY MOM ON THE AIR IMPROMPTU, MOM, WHAT'S
  • 00:38:18.280 --> 00:38:21.210
  • THE GREATEST MIRACLE...
  • 00:38:21.230 --> 00:38:23.100
  • - PAUL CROUCH: WHAT'S THE GREATEST MIRACLE THAT HE
  • 00:38:23.120 --> 00:38:25.000
  • PERFORMED HERE?
  • 00:38:25.020 --> 00:38:27.060
  • - JAN CROUCH: I THINK THE GREATEST MIRACLE IS THAT
  • 00:38:27.080 --> 00:38:29.050
  • HE LET US BE A PART OF IT.
  • 00:38:29.070 --> 00:38:32.020
  • I GUESS THE THING THAT WE CAN LOOK BACK AND SAY THAT
  • 00:38:32.040 --> 00:38:35.040
  • IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THE LORD ON OUR SIDE, WE WOULD
  • 00:38:35.060 --> 00:38:38.070
  • NOT HAVE MADE IT.
  • 00:38:38.090 --> 00:38:39.220
  • WE WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT.
  • 00:38:39.240 --> 00:38:44.020
  • - THAT'S WHY SATAN HATES CHRISTIAN TELEVISION,
  • 00:38:46.080 --> 00:38:48.120
  • BECAUSE WE'RE SNATCHING PEOPLE RIGHT OUT
  • 00:38:48.140 --> 00:38:50.090
  • OF SATAN'S HANDS!
  • 00:38:50.110 --> 00:38:52.110
  • - LET'S PRAISE THE LORD!
  • 00:38:52.130 --> 00:38:54.050
  • - BUT I JUST LIFTED MY FACE UP TO GOD AND SAID,
  • 00:38:54.070 --> 00:38:56.190
  • GOD, IF YOU HELP ME, I'LL BRING TEN THOUSAND DOLLS
  • 00:38:56.210 --> 00:39:02.110
  • DOWN HERE FOR THE CHILDREN IN HAITI.
  • 00:39:02.130 --> 00:39:05.220
  • - HOW ARE YOU, COWBOY CAYLAN?
  • 00:39:05.240 --> 00:39:07.060
  • - GOOD.
  • 00:39:07.080 --> 00:39:08.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:39:08.220 --> 00:39:10.200
  • - SEVEN YEARS OLD ACCEPTING JESUS AS HIS
  • 00:39:10.220 --> 00:39:13.290
  • SAVIOR, AND THAT'S WHAT TBN IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:39:14.010 --> 00:39:17.010
  • [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]
  • 00:39:17.030 --> 00:39:22.110
  • - MY MOM AND DADDY DEDICATED THEIR LIFE TO
  • 00:39:22.130 --> 00:39:25.050
  • THE THOUGHT THAT JESUS IS REALLY BUILDING US A PLACE
  • 00:39:25.070 --> 00:39:29.050
  • IN HEAVEN, AND MY SWEET LITTLE MAMA, MY MAMA JAN
  • 00:39:29.070 --> 00:39:32.120
  • CROUCH, JUST THIS WEEK WENT TO MEET JESUS.
  • 00:39:32.140 --> 00:39:38.150
  • LAURIE AND I WERE STANDING THERE WITH HER
  • 00:39:38.170 --> 00:39:39.270
  • WHEN SHE DID.
  • 00:39:39.290 --> 00:39:41.290
  • - WE HAD STRUGGLED FOR SEVERAL DAYS IN THE
  • 00:39:42.010 --> 00:39:44.140
  • HOSPITAL, AND IT WAS ABOUT 4 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING,
  • 00:39:44.160 --> 00:39:49.170
  • AND IT WAS JUST ME AND MATT WITH HER,
  • 00:39:49.190 --> 00:39:51.170
  • AND IT WAS GETTING TOUGH.
  • 00:39:51.190 --> 00:39:53.220
  • IT WAS GETTING TOUGH FOR HER, AND IT WAS GETTING
  • 00:39:53.240 --> 00:39:55.260
  • MIGHTY TOUGH ON ME.
  • 00:39:55.280 --> 00:39:58.050
  • AND EVERYONE SAYS, YOU GOTTA LET HER, LET HER GO.
  • 00:39:58.070 --> 00:40:01.010
  • LEAD HER TO THE GATES. LET HER GO.
  • 00:40:01.030 --> 00:40:03.100
  • AND BOY, IT TAKES A PROCESS FOR US TO GET THERE.
  • 00:40:03.120 --> 00:40:06.150
  • THEY WANT TO GO.
  • 00:40:06.170 --> 00:40:08.130
  • IT TAKES A PROCESS FOR US TO FINALLY HAND THEM
  • 00:40:08.150 --> 00:40:10.280
  • OFF, IN A WAY.
  • 00:40:11.000 --> 00:40:15.020
  • AND WE HAD STROLLED OUT FOR ABOUT MAYBE TWO OR
  • 00:40:15.040 --> 00:40:18.100
  • THREE MINUTES WHILE THE NURSES WERE IN DOING WHAT
  • 00:40:18.120 --> 00:40:23.010
  • THEY DID ABOUT EVERY FOUR HOURS.
  • 00:40:23.030 --> 00:40:26.220
  • AND WE CAME BACK IN, AND IT WAS JUST [SIGHING]
  • 00:40:26.240 --> 00:40:32.280
  • AND MATT AND I EACH GOT ON ONE OF HER SIDES,
  • 00:40:33.000 --> 00:40:36.050
  • AND I HAD BROUGHT HER BIBLE.
  • 00:40:36.070 --> 00:40:38.000
  • THIS IS HER BIBLE, ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:40:38.020 --> 00:40:40.180
  • AND I HAD BROUGHT HER BIBLE, AND I SAW THAT
  • 00:40:40.200 --> 00:40:43.160
  • WHILE THEY HAD MOVED HER AROUND A LITTLE BIT, THEY
  • 00:40:43.180 --> 00:40:46.160
  • HAD SET HER BIBLE OFF ON TO THE SIDE.
  • 00:40:46.180 --> 00:40:49.140
  • SO MATT HAD GOTTEN ON ONE SIDE OF HER, AND I HAD WAS
  • 00:40:49.160 --> 00:40:52.100
  • ON ONE, AND I JUST STARTED TALKING TO HER
  • 00:40:52.120 --> 00:40:54.110
  • LIKE I ALWAYS DID.
  • 00:40:54.130 --> 00:40:56.040
  • AND I SAID, OH, MAMA, I SAID, I KNOW YOU WANT YOUR
  • 00:40:56.060 --> 00:40:59.070
  • BIBLE BACK ON YOUR LAP, AND I OPENED UP HER BIBLE,
  • 00:40:59.090 --> 00:41:06.170
  • AND I SAT IT ON HER LAP. AND I SAID, OH, MAMA.
  • 00:41:06.190 --> 00:41:12.010
  • I SAID, EVERYBODY'S WAITING FOR YOU.
  • 00:41:12.030 --> 00:41:15.250
  • JUST GO ON HOME TO BE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:41:15.270 --> 00:41:19.250
  • GO ONTO GLORY.
  • 00:41:19.270 --> 00:41:22.250
  • AND ABOUT THAT TIME, MY LITTLE COMATOSE MOTHER WHO
  • 00:41:22.270 --> 00:41:25.180
  • HAD HAD HER EYES CLOSED FOR DAYS POPPED HER LITTLE
  • 00:41:25.200 --> 00:41:30.100
  • EYES OPEN, LOOKED RIGHT AT ME AND
  • 00:41:30.120 --> 00:41:32.190
  • TOOK HER LAST BREATH.
  • 00:41:32.210 --> 00:41:35.040
  • AND I KNOW SHE'S HOME, AND THE GOODNESS OF GOD IS
  • 00:41:35.060 --> 00:41:39.020
  • ALL OVER HER TODAY.
  • 00:41:39.040 --> 00:41:42.040
  • AND IT'S SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD...
  • 00:41:42.060 --> 00:41:52.000
  • YES, IT'S SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD...
  • 00:41:52.020 --> 00:42:01.190
  • OH, IT'S SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD...
  • 00:42:01.210 --> 00:42:15.270
  • OH, IT'S SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD...
  • 00:42:15.270 --> 00:42:28.270
  • OH, IT'S SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD...

  • [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]
  • 00:42:37.270 --> 00:42:39.290
  • - MATT CROUCH: ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I REMEMBER FROM THE EARLY
  • 00:42:40.010 --> 00:42:42.090
  • YEARS OF TBN IS WHEN TBN WOULD GET A PRAISE REPORT,
  • 00:42:42.110 --> 00:42:46.200
  • A LETTER, A MIRACLE, SOMETHING THAT SHE WOULD
  • 00:42:46.220 --> 00:42:49.070
  • LOVE TO RUN ONTO STAGE AND SIMPLY REPORT THE GOOD
  • 00:42:49.090 --> 00:42:53.200
  • THINGS, THE MIRACLES THAT WERE HAPPENING IN THE
  • 00:42:53.220 --> 00:42:55.280
  • LIVES OF THE VIEWERS OF TBN.
  • 00:42:56.000 --> 00:42:59.030
  • - SHE RAN TO THE PHONE BOOTH, AS JOE WAS SINGING.
  • 00:42:59.050 --> 00:43:01.250
  • - IT HAPPENED. I'M GOING TO GIVE NAMES.
  • 00:43:01.270 --> 00:43:04.110
  • CAROLYN FROM PASADENA, CALIFORNIA HAS BEEN
  • 00:43:04.130 --> 00:43:07.000
  • LEGALLY BLIND FOR A YEAR, AND WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR.
  • 00:43:07.020 --> 00:43:10.130
  • SHE CAN SEE, AND SHE CAN WALK RIGHT NOW. IN JESUS' NAME!
  • 00:43:10.150 --> 00:43:15.130
  • - JESUS DESERVES A STANDING OVATION FOR THAT.
  • 00:43:15.150 --> 00:43:19.230
  • - IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKE VERY LONG AND SOMEONE CAME
  • 00:43:32.150 --> 00:43:34.180
  • AND SAID, MA'AM, MA'AM, MA'AM, ARE YOU OKAY?
  • 00:43:34.200 --> 00:43:37.110
  • I THINK IT WAS ABOUT 45 MINUTES, AND THEY PULLED
  • 00:43:37.130 --> 00:43:40.180
  • OUT MY DAUGHTER REALLY QUICKLY, AND THEN -- I
  • 00:43:40.200 --> 00:43:44.000
  • CALL HIM MY GOOD SAMARITAN -- SAID, MA'AM,
  • 00:43:44.020 --> 00:43:46.210
  • I'M GOING TO PULL YOU OUT.
  • 00:43:46.230 --> 00:43:48.100
  • AND HE PULLED ME OUT, AND THAT WAS THE
  • 00:43:48.120 --> 00:43:50.120
  • LAST THING THAT I SAW.
  • 00:43:50.140 --> 00:43:54.050
  • I LATER FOUND OUT I HAD BROKEN MY RIBS.
  • 00:43:56.040 --> 00:43:59.220
  • THE MORROW IN MY BONES RELEASED INTO MY
  • 00:43:59.240 --> 00:44:02.120
  • BLOODSTREAM AND SET UP IN MY EYES AS
  • 00:44:02.140 --> 00:44:05.020
  • POISON AND BLINDED ME.
  • 00:44:05.040 --> 00:44:08.150
  • I COULD NOT DRIVE A CAR. I COULD NOT COOK A MEAL.
  • 00:44:08.170 --> 00:44:11.080
  • I COULD NOT FEED MY CHILDREN, AND I COULD
  • 00:44:11.100 --> 00:44:13.230
  • NOT READ MY BIBLE.
  • 00:44:13.250 --> 00:44:16.260
  • SO AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE, I WILL HAVE TO
  • 00:44:16.280 --> 00:44:21.060
  • SAY THAT I DEVELOPED SUCH AN APPRECIATION AND A
  • 00:44:21.080 --> 00:44:24.170
  • THANKFULNESS FOR CHRISTIAN TELEVISION.
  • 00:44:24.190 --> 00:44:31.000
  • TBN WAS ON CONSTANTLY, AND I REMEMBER WATCHING,
  • 00:44:31.020 --> 00:44:35.110
  • LISTENING AND WATCHING THE TELETHON, AND I HONESTLY
  • 00:44:35.130 --> 00:44:39.250
  • DON'T REMEMBER WHAT THE SERMON WAS, BUT HONEY,
  • 00:44:39.270 --> 00:44:44.100
  • WHEN THEY WERE PRAYING FOR THE SICK, IF THEY ASKED TO
  • 00:44:44.120 --> 00:44:46.150
  • STRETCH YOUR HAND, I DID IT BECAUSE I
  • 00:44:46.170 --> 00:44:48.210
  • NEEDED A MIRACLE.
  • 00:44:48.230 --> 00:44:52.160
  • I FULLY BELIEVE THAT THE LORD TOUCHED ME THAT DAY,
  • 00:44:52.180 --> 00:44:55.170
  • AND MY FAITH GRABBED HOLD OF IT, AND I KEPT HOPING
  • 00:44:55.190 --> 00:44:59.100
  • THAT I WOULD WAKE UP WITH 20/20 VISION, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:44:59.120 --> 00:45:03.080
  • AND THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN, BUT SLOWLY MY VISION BEGAN
  • 00:45:03.100 --> 00:45:07.090
  • TO COME BACK.
  • 00:45:07.110 --> 00:45:09.100
  • AND WHEN I WENT TO THE SEVEN WEEK CHECK UP, I HAD
  • 00:45:09.120 --> 00:45:12.040
  • 20/20 VISION.
  • 00:45:12.060 --> 00:45:14.210
  • THERE'S NO VALUE ON THE GOSPEL, THE ANOINTING.
  • 00:45:14.230 --> 00:45:17.140
  • SOMEBODY WHO BELIEVES WITH GOD FOR A MIRACLE TO COME
  • 00:45:17.160 --> 00:45:21.070
  • INTO YOUR LIVING ROOM AND PRAY WITH YOU, WOW.
  • 00:45:21.090 --> 00:45:24.220
  • THAT'S AWESOME, AND I AM ABLE TO SIT HERE AND
  • 00:45:24.240 --> 00:45:27.220
  • DECLARE THE WORD OF THE LORD, THAT JESUS IS THE
  • 00:45:27.240 --> 00:45:31.040
  • HEALER BECAUSE, IN LARGE PART, TBN
  • 00:45:31.060 --> 00:45:33.290
  • WAS THERE FOR ME. I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:45:34.010 --> 00:45:36.180
  • - TBN, BY THE WAY, IS LIGHT.
  • 00:45:36.200 --> 00:45:38.290
  • TBN IS NOT JUST A TELEVISION, FAMILY OF
  • 00:45:39.010 --> 00:45:41.230
  • NETWORKS AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:45:41.250 --> 00:45:44.080
  • TBN IS LIGHTNESS IN THE MIDST OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:45:44.100 --> 00:45:46.280
  • I TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:45:47.000 --> 00:45:48.120
  • I SEE THIS NETWORK, AND I SEE THE POWER OF LIGHT,
  • 00:45:48.140 --> 00:45:50.120
  • OF DARKNESS FLEEING IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:45:50.140 --> 00:45:53.240
  • - I THINK THAT THERE HAS BEEN A PERIOD OF TIME IN
  • 00:45:53.260 --> 00:45:56.200
  • THE CHURCH THAT PEOPLE GOT CONFUSED AND THOUGHT THAT
  • 00:45:56.220 --> 00:46:02.030
  • THERE WAS AN ACTUAL POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN GOD AND
  • 00:46:02.050 --> 00:46:06.100
  • THE DEVIL, WHERE THAT POWER STRUGGLE WAS FIXED
  • 00:46:06.120 --> 00:46:11.100
  • 2000 YEARS AGO ON A CROSS, AND THAT WAS OVER.
  • 00:46:11.120 --> 00:46:16.230
  • AND NOW WHAT WE'RE TOLD BY JESUS,
  • 00:46:16.250 --> 00:46:20.160
  • THE LAST THING HE SAYS IS, "ALL POWER..."
  • 00:46:20.180 --> 00:46:22.280
  • - COME ON.
  • 00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:24.260
  • - "... HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME." SO IF HE HAS ALL POWER,
  • 00:46:24.280 --> 00:46:30.170
  • THAT BEGS THE QUESTION, HOW MUCH DOES THE DEVIL HAVE?
  • 00:46:30.190 --> 00:46:34.250
  • - NONE. NONE.
  • 00:46:34.270 --> 00:46:37.040
  • - HOW MUCH?
  • 00:46:37.060 --> 00:46:38.180
  • - NONE. JESUS HAS ALL OF IT.
  • 00:46:38.200 --> 00:46:42.050
  • SO THAT'S THE TRUTH. THAT IS THE TRUTH. THAT IS REALITY.
  • 00:46:42.070 --> 00:46:49.160
  • THAT IS THE LIGHT IS ON.
  • 00:46:49.180 --> 00:46:54.050
  • SO THE ONLY WAY THAT WE CAN EXPERIENCE DARKNESS
  • 00:46:54.070 --> 00:46:59.180
  • IS THROUGH A LIE.
  • 00:46:59.200 --> 00:47:02.130
  • I'M GONNA LET MY LIGHT SHINE...
  • 00:47:02.150 --> 00:47:05.110
  • I'M GONNA LET MY LIGHT SHINE ALL AROUND THE WORLD...
  • 00:47:05.130 --> 00:47:09.170
  • HEY...
  • 00:47:09.190 --> 00:47:12.160
  • LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE...
  • 00:47:12.180 --> 00:47:15.150
  • ALL AROUND THE WORLD...
  • 00:47:15.170 --> 00:47:20.120
  • [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]
  • 00:47:20.140 --> 00:47:24.260
  • - I FOUND MYSELF SPEAKING ABOUT DARKNESS, WRITING
  • 00:47:24.280 --> 00:47:27.140
  • ABOUT DARKNESS, PREACHING MORE ABOUT THE DARKNESS,
  • 00:47:27.160 --> 00:47:30.210
  • AND THEN I FOUND MYSELF -- I WAS IN THE LIVING ROOM,
  • 00:47:30.230 --> 00:47:33.180
  • WE WERE ALL ALONE AT HOME, AND I HAD A
  • 00:47:33.200 --> 00:47:35.060
  • MOMENT WITH GOD.
  • 00:47:35.080 --> 00:47:36.230
  • AND GOD SPOKE TO ME ABOUT BEING LIGHT.
  • 00:47:36.250 --> 00:47:38.130
  • SIMPLY STATED, JUST BE LIGHT, SAMUEL.
  • 00:47:38.150 --> 00:47:41.010
  • STOP FOCUSING ON THE DARKNESS.
  • 00:47:41.030 --> 00:47:42.230
  • FOCUS ON BEING LIGHT, AND WHEN LIGHT STANDS NEXT TO
  • 00:47:42.250 --> 00:47:45.150
  • DARKNESS, LIGHT ALWAYS WINS.
  • 00:47:45.170 --> 00:47:47.100
  • THAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVERMORE, TRANSFORMED ME.
  • 00:47:47.120 --> 00:47:51.290
  • THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, I'M GONNA LET IT SHINE...
  • 00:47:52.010 --> 00:47:56.070
  • THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, I'M GONNA LET IT SHINE...
  • 00:47:56.090 --> 00:48:00.230
  • LET IT SHINE...
  • 00:48:00.250 --> 00:48:03.190
  • LET IT SHINE...
  • 00:48:03.210 --> 00:48:06.070
  • LET IT SHINE...
  • 00:48:06.090 --> 00:48:10.130
  • AH...
  • 00:48:10.150 --> 00:48:15.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:48:15.040 --> 00:48:17.170
  • - AND THEN HE TOOK ME TO GIDEON TO JUDGES CHAPTER 7
  • 00:48:17.190 --> 00:48:20.070
  • WHERE THE JARS HAD LIGHT, FIRE, INSIDE OF THEM, BUT
  • 00:48:20.090 --> 00:48:24.080
  • ONLY WHEN THE JARS WERE BROKEN WAS THE FIRE AND
  • 00:48:24.100 --> 00:48:27.180
  • THE LIGHT EXPOSED.
  • 00:48:27.200 --> 00:48:29.180
  • SOMETIMES, WE GO THROUGH A BREAKING PROCESS.
  • 00:48:29.200 --> 00:48:31.130
  • WE GO THROUGH A PROCESS.
  • 00:48:31.150 --> 00:48:33.150
  • THIS IDEA THAT CHRISTIANS DON'T GO THROUGH ANYTHING,
  • 00:48:33.170 --> 00:48:35.220
  • THERE'S A FALSE GOSPEL OUT THERE THAT SAYS IF YOU'RE
  • 00:48:35.240 --> 00:48:38.100
  • A CHRISTIAN, YOU SHOULDN'T GO THROUGH ANYTHING, THAT
  • 00:48:38.120 --> 00:48:40.160
  • CHRISTIANS DON'T GO THROUGH ANYTHING, THAT THE
  • 00:48:40.180 --> 00:48:42.220
  • DEVIL NEVER -- THAT IF YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK, IT'S
  • 00:48:42.240 --> 00:48:44.150
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE IN SIN.
  • 00:48:44.170 --> 00:48:46.190
  • NO, IF YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK, IT'S BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:48:46.210 --> 00:48:51.210
  • HAVE GREAT PURPOSE OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:48:51.230 --> 00:48:54.040
  • YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK BECAUSE WHAT'S COMING NEXT
  • 00:48:54.060 --> 00:48:55.250
  • IS GREATER THAN ANYTHING YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE.
  • 00:48:55.270 --> 00:48:57.250
  • THE REASON WHY YOU'VE BEEN ATTACKED, EVEN SIZE OF
  • 00:48:57.270 --> 00:48:59.190
  • YOUR ATTACK, IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO THE
  • 00:48:59.210 --> 00:49:01.160
  • MAGNITUDE OF THE BLESSING, BREAKTHROUGH, AND DESTINY
  • 00:49:01.180 --> 00:49:03.150
  • THAT LIES BEFORE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:49:03.170 --> 00:49:05.100
  • SO IF YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK RIGHT NOW, INSTEAD OF
  • 00:49:05.120 --> 00:49:06.290
  • WHINING AND BEING DEPRESSED, REJOICE AND
  • 00:49:07.010 --> 00:49:08.200
  • DANCE IN THE NAME OF JESUS BECAUSE YOU'RE ABOUT TO
  • 00:49:08.220 --> 00:49:10.210
  • SEE THE GLORY OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE LIKE YOU'VE
  • 00:49:10.230 --> 00:49:12.190
  • NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.
  • 00:49:12.210 --> 00:49:14.230
  • - SOMETIMES, WE GET SO COMFORTABLE AND COMPLACENT
  • 00:49:14.250 --> 00:49:18.250
  • THAT WE ASSUME THAT IF WE'RE FACING AN ATTACK, WE
  • 00:49:18.270 --> 00:49:22.270
  • MUST BE DOING SOMETHING WRONG, BUT I CAME WITH AN
  • 00:49:22.290 --> 00:49:26.060
  • ANNOUNCEMENT TONIGHT.
  • 00:49:26.080 --> 00:49:28.040
  • SOMETIMES, THE FACT THAT YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK ISN'T
  • 00:49:28.060 --> 00:49:32.060
  • A SIGN THAT YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.
  • 00:49:32.080 --> 00:49:34.130
  • IT'S A SIGN THAT YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK, AND THE
  • 00:49:34.150 --> 00:49:37.290
  • DEVIL SEES THAT YOU HAVE DETERMINED AND DECIDED IN
  • 00:49:38.010 --> 00:49:41.290
  • YOUR HEART, IN YOUR MIND, IN YOUR SPIRIT THAT
  • 00:49:42.010 --> 00:49:45.160
  • I'M GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:49:45.180 --> 00:49:47.010
  • LET ME SHARE SOMETHING WITH YOU.
  • 00:49:47.030 --> 00:49:48.290
  • THE DEVIL DOESN'T HAVE TO ATTACK APATHETIC PEOPLE.
  • 00:49:49.010 --> 00:49:51.060
  • IT'S ONLY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE MADE UP THEIR
  • 00:49:51.080 --> 00:49:53.240
  • MINDS I'M NOT STAYING WHERE I AM.
  • 00:49:53.260 --> 00:49:55.120
  • I'M NOT LIVING FOR JUST ME.
  • 00:49:55.140 --> 00:49:57.100
  • I'M GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MY WORLD.
  • 00:49:57.120 --> 00:49:59.020
  • I'M BREAKING OUT OF THE CONFINES OF WHAT'S
  • 00:49:59.040 --> 00:50:01.160
  • COMFORTABLE FOR ME, AND I'M STEPPING
  • 00:50:01.180 --> 00:50:03.090
  • INTO MY CALLING.
  • 00:50:03.110 --> 00:50:05.090
  • - TO ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN BROKEN IN THE PAST FEW
  • 00:50:05.110 --> 00:50:07.130
  • WEEKS AND MONTHS, IF YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH A
  • 00:50:07.150 --> 00:50:09.110
  • BREAKING PROCESS, IF YOUR JAR HAS COLLIDED WITH
  • 00:50:09.130 --> 00:50:11.210
  • SOMEONE ELSE'S, IF YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH A PROCESS AND
  • 00:50:11.230 --> 00:50:13.180
  • YOU'RE ASKING GOD WHAT'S GOING ON IN MY
  • 00:50:13.200 --> 00:50:15.160
  • LIFE RIGHT NOW? HOLD ON.
  • 00:50:15.180 --> 00:50:17.030
  • GOD'S NOT DONE WITH YOU.
  • 00:50:17.050 --> 00:50:19.040
  • THIS BREAKING PROCESS IS GOING TO LEAD TO THE
  • 00:50:19.060 --> 00:50:22.240
  • EXPOSING OF HIS LIGHT THROUGH YOU AND IN YOU.
  • 00:50:22.260 --> 00:50:25.100
  • YOU'RE ABOUT TO SHINE LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SHINED BEFORE
  • 00:50:25.120 --> 00:50:28.150
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:50:28.170 --> 00:50:30.050
  • - I SAID, I'M IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:50:30.070 --> 00:50:31.260
  • I'M GOING TO SPEAK, I'M GOING SPEAK.
  • 00:50:31.280 --> 00:50:33.190
  • BUT I SEE ALL OF THESE PEOPLE IN BETWEEN, IN THE
  • 00:50:33.210 --> 00:50:35.130
  • AIRPORTS, PEOPLE THAT ARE FRUSTRATED IN
  • 00:50:35.150 --> 00:50:37.010
  • CUSTOMER SERVICE LINES.
  • 00:50:37.030 --> 00:50:38.210
  • THEY TAP ME ON THE SHOULDER AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:50:38.230 --> 00:50:42.010
  • MAN, THEY SHOULD GET SOME MORE PEOPLE.
  • 00:50:42.030 --> 00:50:43.140
  • AND I SAY, OH, HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE WORD
  • 00:50:43.160 --> 00:50:44.200
  • "GRACE" MAN?
  • 00:50:44.220 --> 00:50:46.010
  • AND I JUST BRING THE GOSPEL IN THERE.
  • 00:50:46.030 --> 00:50:47.220
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE I'M AT.
  • 00:50:47.240 --> 00:50:49.090
  • T.S.A., I WENT THROUGH T.S.A. TODAY.
  • 00:50:49.110 --> 00:50:51.090
  • I'M GOING THROUGH T.S.A., AND I ALWAYS GET SEARCHED.
  • 00:50:51.110 --> 00:50:53.200
  • I COULD BE T.S.A. PRE,
  • 00:50:53.220 --> 00:50:55.060
  • BUT THEY STILL SEARCH ME BECAUSE I'M A
  • 00:50:55.080 --> 00:50:56.210
  • PECULIAR FELLOW. THEY ALWAYS DO.
  • 00:50:56.230 --> 00:50:59.050
  • THEY SEARCH MY BAGS.
  • 00:50:59.070 --> 00:51:00.220
  • AND SO MY BAGS GET SEARCHED.
  • 00:51:00.240 --> 00:51:02.120
  • I GO THROUGH, I SAY, HEY, THE ONLY THING YOU'RE
  • 00:51:02.140 --> 00:51:03.280
  • GOING TO FIND IN THERE IS JESUS.
  • 00:51:04.000 --> 00:51:05.120
  • AND THEY'RE LIKE, WHAT?
  • 00:51:05.140 --> 00:51:06.290
  • AND I'M LIKE, YEAH, HE'S THERE.
  • 00:51:07.010 --> 00:51:08.130
  • DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING SHARP? YES, I DO.
  • 00:51:08.150 --> 00:51:09.230
  • IT'S THE WORD OF GOD, AND I DO,
  • 00:51:09.250 --> 00:51:11.290
  • BUT I'M REALLY SERIOUS. I HAVE FUN WITH IT.
  • 00:51:12.010 --> 00:51:15.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:51:15.030 --> 00:51:17.280
  • AND SO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN?
  • 00:51:18.000 --> 00:51:19.160
  • IF THEY DETAIN ME, I'M JUST GOING TO
  • 00:51:19.180 --> 00:51:20.240
  • PREACH THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:51:20.260 --> 00:51:21.290
  • I'M GOING TO SHARE JESUS.
  • 00:51:22.010 --> 00:51:23.120
  • IF THEY TAKE ME INTO THE SIDE ROOM LIKE THEY DID AT
  • 00:51:23.140 --> 00:51:24.260
  • CUSTOMS SOMETIMES, I'M JUST GOING TO
  • 00:51:24.280 --> 00:51:27.010
  • SHARE JESUS, MAN.
  • 00:51:27.030 --> 00:51:28.250
  • I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE GET HEALED.
  • 00:51:28.270 --> 00:51:30.180
  • T.S.A. AGENTS, I'VE WATCHED THEM COUNTLESS
  • 00:51:30.200 --> 00:51:33.000
  • TIMES GET HEALED.
  • 00:51:33.020 --> 00:51:34.190
  • IN THE AIRPORT, PEOPLE ARE IN THERE ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:51:34.210 --> 00:51:36.010
  • TODAY, THEY'RE GOING TO BE IN THERE AGAIN, AND PEOPLE
  • 00:51:36.030 --> 00:51:37.290
  • ARE GOING TO GET ROCKED BECAUSE CHRIST LIVES IN
  • 00:51:38.010 --> 00:51:39.210
  • ME, AND HE LOVES PEOPLE.
  • 00:51:39.230 --> 00:51:41.110
  • THIS THING IS NEVER ABOUT A PULPIT FOR ME.
  • 00:51:41.130 --> 00:51:43.070
  • IT'S ABOUT MY LIFE ON FIRE FOR JESUS.
  • 00:51:43.090 --> 00:51:45.270
  • PEOPLE ARE NOT -- SEE, PEOPLE THINK THAT ETERNITY
  • 00:51:45.290 --> 00:51:50.000
  • IS OUT IN FRONT OF THEM.
  • 00:51:50.020 --> 00:51:51.290
  • IT'S NOT IN FRONT OF PEOPLE, MAN.
  • 00:51:52.010 --> 00:51:53.220
  • IT'S RIGHT BESIDE THEM, AND PEOPLE CAN CROSS
  • 00:51:53.240 --> 00:51:55.060
  • OVER AT ANY TIME.
  • 00:51:55.080 --> 00:51:56.220
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ME.
  • 00:51:56.240 --> 00:51:58.160
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE TO PRAY FOR.
  • 00:51:58.180 --> 00:52:00.180
  • IT'S ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:52:00.200 --> 00:52:02.190
  • YOU'RE INTERRUPTING SOMEBODY'S PATH
  • 00:52:02.210 --> 00:52:05.040
  • TODAY WITH YOUR ROAD.
  • 00:52:05.060 --> 00:52:07.020
  • PEOPLE ARE ON THESE PATHS. WE'RE ON A ROAD.
  • 00:52:07.040 --> 00:52:09.130
  • IT'S THE HIGHWAY OF HOLINESS.
  • 00:52:09.150 --> 00:52:11.080
  • JESUS IS THE NARROW WAY.
  • 00:52:11.100 --> 00:52:13.160
  • WE ARE ON THE ROAD.
  • 00:52:13.180 --> 00:52:15.250
  • IT'S LIKE THE WAY OF THE FATHER, SO WE GET TO LIVE
  • 00:52:15.270 --> 00:52:18.200
  • AND HAVE RELATIONSHIP AND COMMUNION, THE LOVE OF
  • 00:52:18.220 --> 00:52:21.210
  • GOD, THE GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE
  • 00:52:21.230 --> 00:52:23.220
  • COMMUNION WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:52:23.240 --> 00:52:25.210
  • SO EVERYWHERE I WALK, HE SPEAKS TO ME, EVERYWHERE I
  • 00:52:25.230 --> 00:52:28.090
  • GO, LIKE EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:52:28.110 --> 00:52:30.080
  • SO NO MATTER WHERE I'M AT, GOD WILL SPEAK TO
  • 00:52:30.100 --> 00:52:32.090
  • ME ABOUT PEOPLE.
  • 00:52:32.110 --> 00:52:33.280
  • IT'S NOT TRYING TO STIR IT UP.
  • 00:52:34.000 --> 00:52:35.180
  • HE LOVES PEOPLE.
  • 00:52:35.200 --> 00:52:37.080
  • IT'S CHRIST IN ME AS THE HOPE OF GLORY.
  • 00:52:37.100 --> 00:52:39.060
  • CHRIST COMING OUT OF ME IS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:52:39.080 --> 00:52:41.200
  • HE'S NOT IN US LIKE A LAKE TRAPPED.
  • 00:52:41.220 --> 00:52:44.150
  • HE COMES OUT OF US LIKE RIVERS BECAUSE
  • 00:52:44.170 --> 00:52:47.020
  • HE'S A FOUNTAIN THAT NEVER RUNS DRY.
  • 00:52:47.040 --> 00:52:49.130
  • THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T NEED SOMEONE TO PRAY FOR YOU TO
  • 00:52:49.150 --> 00:52:51.260
  • BE FILLED UP AGAIN.
  • 00:52:51.280 --> 00:52:53.270
  • IF MY FOUNTAIN RUNS DRY, I'VE GOT A PROBLEM
  • 00:52:53.290 --> 00:52:55.170
  • WITH MY RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:52:55.190 --> 00:52:57.220
  • MY FOUNTAIN NEVER RUNS DRY.
  • 00:52:57.240 --> 00:52:59.170
  • WE SHOULD WALK AROUND AND IT SHOULD SOUND LIKE THIS,
  • 00:52:59.190 --> 00:53:01.270
  • SQUISH, SQUISH, SQUISH, BECAUSE HE LIVES IN US,
  • 00:53:01.290 --> 00:53:04.020
  • AND HE WANTS PEOPLE TO GET OVERWHELMED
  • 00:53:04.040 --> 00:53:06.100
  • BECAUSE WE'RE SATURATED. WE'RE ANOINTED.
  • 00:53:06.120 --> 00:53:10.030
  • CHRISTIANS ARE ANOINTED ONES THAT ARE ANOINTED AND
  • 00:53:10.050 --> 00:53:13.280
  • SEARED WITH GOD.
  • 00:53:14.000 --> 00:53:15.270
  • WE NEED TO KNOW WHO WE ARE AND WHOSE WE ARE SO THAT
  • 00:53:15.290 --> 00:53:18.120
  • WE CAN GIVE A LOST AND DYING WORLD, PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:53:18.140 --> 00:53:21.110
  • ARE HURTING AND JUST IN TRAGIC SITUATIONS, AND WE
  • 00:53:21.130 --> 00:53:23.280
  • GET TO INTERRUPT THAT.
  • 00:53:24.000 --> 00:53:25.290
  • YOU ARE MY STRONG TOWER...
  • 00:53:26.010 --> 00:53:33.110
  • YOU WILL RESCUE ME YAHWEH...
  • 00:53:33.130 --> 00:53:40.050
  • AND I NOT GROW FAINT...
  • 00:53:40.070 --> 00:53:43.240
  • BUT MY HEART GROW STRONGER...
  • 00:53:43.260 --> 00:53:49.140
  • AS I CHOOSE TO SEE YOUR FACE...
  • 00:53:49.160 --> 00:53:55.000
  • - PEOPLE ASK ME A QUESTION OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:53:55.020 --> 00:53:57.110
  • I'M 78 YEARS OF AGE, BEEN MARRIED 53 YEARS, BEEN
  • 00:53:57.130 --> 00:54:01.010
  • PREACHING THE GOSPEL 63 YEARS, AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:54:01.030 --> 00:54:05.140
  • PASTOR BARNETT, IF YOU COULD START YOUR LIFE OVER
  • 00:54:05.160 --> 00:54:08.080
  • AGAIN, IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD
  • 00:54:08.100 --> 00:54:09.270
  • HAVE DONE DIFFERENT?
  • 00:54:09.290 --> 00:54:11.250
  • AND I THOUGHT ABOUT THAT, JESSE, AND I WILL IT THINK
  • 00:54:11.270 --> 00:54:14.260
  • HARD BECAUSE I DON'T LIVE IN THE PAST.
  • 00:54:14.280 --> 00:54:16.200
  • I'M LIVING IN THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE.
  • 00:54:16.220 --> 00:54:18.220
  • BUT I FORCED MYSELF TO GO BACK, AND I THOUGHT, IF I
  • 00:54:18.240 --> 00:54:22.150
  • COULD DO MY LIFE OVER AGAIN, I'D DO TWO
  • 00:54:22.170 --> 00:54:24.290
  • THINGS DIFFERENT.
  • 00:54:25.010 --> 00:54:27.190
  • FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD HAVE DREAMED BIGGER DREAMS,
  • 00:54:27.210 --> 00:54:31.250
  • AND SECOND, I WOULD HAVE TAKEN BIGGER RISKS.
  • 00:54:31.270 --> 00:54:36.110
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE'S ABLE TO DO
  • 00:54:36.130 --> 00:54:38.250
  • EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT YOU ASK OR
  • 00:54:38.270 --> 00:54:41.260
  • THINK, AND I USED TO PREACH THAT YOU HAD TO SEE
  • 00:54:41.280 --> 00:54:45.130
  • IT BEFORE YOU GOT IT, AND I STILL
  • 00:54:45.150 --> 00:54:47.120
  • BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE.
  • 00:54:47.140 --> 00:54:49.060
  • I BELIEVE YOU CAN SEE IN YOUR MIND WHAT GOD
  • 00:54:49.080 --> 00:54:50.240
  • HAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:54:50.260 --> 00:54:52.170
  • THAT'S A GREAT PRINCIPLE, BUT IT'S NOT COMPLETELY
  • 00:54:52.190 --> 00:54:55.010
  • TRUE BECAUSE I AM SEEING THINGS IN THIS LITTLE GUY
  • 00:54:55.030 --> 00:54:57.240
  • HERE WHO REALLY DIDN'T FINISH UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:54:57.260 --> 00:55:04.020
  • I'M A CHANCELLOR OF A UNIVERSITY NOW.
  • 00:55:04.040 --> 00:55:05.160
  • - THAT'S SOMETHING.
  • 00:55:05.180 --> 00:55:07.090
  • - A LITTLE GUY WITH NO DEGREES WHATSOEVER, BUT
  • 00:55:07.110 --> 00:55:09.080
  • I'M SEEING GOD DO THINGS THAT I NEVER SAW
  • 00:55:09.100 --> 00:55:11.250
  • OR NEVER DREAMED.
  • 00:55:11.270 --> 00:55:14.010
  • - ISN'T THAT SOMETHING?
  • 00:55:14.030 --> 00:55:15.250
  • - AND RIGHT NOW IN THIS BUILDING, WATCHING THIS
  • 00:55:15.270 --> 00:55:18.130
  • CAMERA, AND IN THIS BUILDING, THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:55:18.150 --> 00:55:21.010
  • THAT HAVE NO DREAMS.
  • 00:55:21.030 --> 00:55:22.290
  • YOU LOOK AT THIS OLD GUY HERE AND SAY, YOU'RE 78,
  • 00:55:23.010 --> 00:55:25.210
  • AND YOU GOT SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR.
  • 00:55:25.230 --> 00:55:28.000
  • I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, BUT THERE'S NO REASON
  • 00:55:28.020 --> 00:55:30.290
  • TO GET OUT OF BED.
  • 00:55:31.010 --> 00:55:32.240
  • THERE'S A HOLE IN MY HEART.
  • 00:55:32.260 --> 00:55:35.010
  • I WANT TO TELL YOU, ONLY GOD CAN FILL THAT HOLE.
  • 00:55:35.030 --> 00:55:37.170
  • YOU HAVE A SHALLOW VENEER THERE, AN EMPTINESS.
  • 00:55:37.190 --> 00:55:40.240
  • YOU SAY, WELL, I'LL FILL IT WITH WEALTH, AND WEALTH
  • 00:55:40.260 --> 00:55:43.100
  • IS WONDERFUL, BUT THAT WON'T FILL THAT.
  • 00:55:43.120 --> 00:55:46.030
  • YOU SAY, WELL, IF I COULD JUST BECOME FAMOUS...
  • 00:55:46.050 --> 00:55:50.030
  • BY THE WAY, THE DREAM CENTER IS FULL OF MOVIE
  • 00:55:50.050 --> 00:55:53.180
  • STARS THAT COME, MORE IN L.A.
  • 00:55:53.200 --> 00:55:55.200
  • TO OUR CHURCH THAN ANY CHURCH IN ALL OF L.A. WHY?
  • 00:55:55.220 --> 00:55:58.240
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING.
  • 00:55:58.260 --> 00:56:00.270
  • THEY FEEL LIKE IF THEY CAN JUST HELP SOME POOR
  • 00:56:00.290 --> 00:56:03.040
  • PERSON, BUT THAT WON'T DO IT.
  • 00:56:03.060 --> 00:56:05.120
  • THE ONLY THING THAT WILL FILL THAT EMPTINESS
  • 00:56:05.140 --> 00:56:07.270
  • IS GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:56:07.290 --> 00:56:10.070
  • GOD SENT ME TO GIVE YOU THAT MESSAGE TODAY,
  • 00:56:10.090 --> 00:56:13.270
  • AND I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:56:13.290 --> 00:56:16.020
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IF WE WILL CONFESS OUR HEART
  • 00:56:16.040 --> 00:56:18.280
  • THAT HE'LL FORGIVE US, AND HE SAID THAT HIS GRACE
  • 00:56:19.000 --> 00:56:22.050
  • AND MERCY WILL BE THERE IN TIME OF NEED.
  • 00:56:22.070 --> 00:56:26.090
  • WHAT IS YOUR NEED?
  • 00:56:26.110 --> 00:56:28.260
  • TAKE THE FIRST STEP BECAUSE GOD IS
  • 00:56:28.280 --> 00:56:30.240
  • A RESPONDER GOD.
  • 00:56:30.260 --> 00:56:33.180
  • HE SAID ASK, THAT'S YOUR PART, AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE.
  • 00:56:33.200 --> 00:56:36.060
  • HE SAID SEEK, THAT'S YOUR PART, AND YOU SHALL FIND.
  • 00:56:36.080 --> 00:56:38.150
  • KNOCK, IT SHALL BE OPENED. GIVE, IT SHALL BE GIVEN.
  • 00:56:38.170 --> 00:56:40.230
  • AND YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP.
  • 00:56:40.250 --> 00:56:43.200
  • SO WOULD YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:56:43.220 --> 00:56:46.180

  • 00:56:46.200 --> 00:56:50.010
  • WORLD, THIS IS GOING TO BE THE MOMENT FOR WHICH

  • REPEAT THIS PRAYER.
  • 00:57:08.210 --> 00:57:10.180
  • DEAR GOD...

  • 00:57:12.190 --> 00:57:14.140
  • I NEED A SAVIOR...
  • 00:57:14.160 --> 00:57:16.110
  • YOU SAID THAT IF I WOULD ASK YOU...
  • 00:57:16.130 --> 00:57:19.050
  • THAT YOU WOULD FORGIVE ME...
  • 00:57:19.070 --> 00:57:21.220
  • AND I BELIEVE YOU, LORD...
  • 00:57:21.240 --> 00:57:23.250
  • I REPENT OF MY SINS...
  • 00:57:23.270 --> 00:57:25.200
  • I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU...
  • 00:57:25.220 --> 00:57:27.260
  • I AM NOW YOURS...
  • 00:57:27.280 --> 00:57:30.230
  • THANK YOU FOR COMING INTO MY HEART...
  • 00:57:30.250 --> 00:57:33.100
  • IN JESUS' NAME...
  • 00:57:33.120 --> 00:57:36.130
  • AMEN...
  • 00:57:36.150 --> 00:57:38.080
  • AMEN.
  • 00:57:38.100 --> 00:57:39.270
