  • WENT AND LOOKED AT THE TRAIN
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:02.170
  • OUTSIDE OF THE WINDOW, AND I
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:05.050
  • THOUGHT, "I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE

  • DOOR OR OUTSIDE THE BACK OF THIS

  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:15.140
  • SO WHEN SHE CAME, I SAT
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:16.020
  • DOWN IN THE CAR.
  • 00:13:16.020 --> 00:13:16.190

  • 00:13:20.280 --> 00:13:22.160
  • I DESCRIBED TO HER HOW
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:23.150
  • AT 3 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING FOR
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:24.190
  • THE LAST TWO NIGHTS, THIS TRAIN
  • 00:13:24.190 --> 00:13:26.030
  • HAD GONE ROARING BY IN THE BACK
  • 00:13:26.030 --> 00:13:28.110
  • OF THE HOTEL.
  • 00:13:28.110 --> 00:13:29.000
  • AS I EXPLAINED IT TO HER, I FELT
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:31.190
  • BAD FOR HER BECAUSE IT WAS LIKE
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:33.130
  • IT WAS OCCURRING TO HER, DAWNING
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:34.290
  • ON HER, LIKE SHE WAS REMINDED
  • 00:13:34.290 --> 00:13:37.210
  • ABOUT THIS TRAIN THAT COMES
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:38.110
  • THROUGH THEIR COMMUNITY.
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:39.080
  • HER EYES WERE AS WIDE AS
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:40.130
  • SAUCERS, AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:41.240
  • "PRISCILLA, I AM SO SORRY.
  • 00:13:41.240 --> 00:13:44.060
  • I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THAT
  • 00:13:44.210 --> 00:13:47.210
  • TRAIN AND" SHE SAID, "THE REASON
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:49.210
  • WHY IS BECAUSE THOSE OF US WHO
  • 00:13:49.210 --> 00:13:51.080
  • LIVE IN THIS COMMUNITY HAVE
  • 00:13:51.080 --> 00:13:54.020
  • GOTTEN SO USED TO THE SOUND OF
  • 00:13:54.020 --> 00:13:54.290
  • THE TRAIN THAT WE DON'T EVEN
  • 00:13:54.290 --> 00:13:55.190
  • RECOGNIZE IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:13:55.190 --> 00:13:57.110
  • THAT TRAIN COMES BY TWO OR THREE
  • 00:13:57.110 --> 00:13:58.190
  • TIMES A WEEK, EVERY WEEK, AND WE
  • 00:13:58.190 --> 00:14:00.060
  • PAY LITTLE ATTENTION TO IT
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:01.280
  • BECAUSE WE'VE LIVED HERE SO LONG
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:05.020
  • THAT WE'VE GOTTEN SO USED TO THE
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:06.280
  • SOUND OF THE TRAIN THAT, WHEN IT
  • 00:14:06.280 --> 00:14:08.120
  • COMES, WE DON'T RECOGNIZE IT.
  • 00:14:08.120 --> 00:14:10.090
  • WE'VE BEEN DESENSITIZED TO THE

  • TRAIN IN THIS COMMUNITY."
  • 00:14:11.220 --> 00:14:12.250
  • IT OCCURS TO ME THAT
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:14.180
  • THOSE OF US WHO LIVE

  • IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD OF BLESSING
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:48.050
  • FOR SO LONG THAT, WHEN THE TRAIN

  • OF GOD'S GLORY WANTS TO FALL IN
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:56.110
  • AN UNUSUAL WAY, WHEN HE WANTS TO

  • SHOW UP IN POWER AND IN GLORY,
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:58.030
  • THAT WE HAVE BECOME SO USED TO

  • PRESENCE AMONG US THAT IT
  • 00:15:07.070 --> 00:15:08.190

  • OPPRESSION AND A PLACE OF
  • 00:17:51.290 --> 00:17:53.110
  • DESTRUCTION, AND LUKE WRITES TO

  • DECLINE, LIKE NEVER BEFORE, AND,
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:09.210
  • LISTEN, THE MORE GOD IS
  • 00:18:09.210 --> 00:18:11.020
  • MARGINALIZED, THE MORE HE'S
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:13.120
  • SEGMENTED TO THE PERIPHERY OF
  • 00:18:13.120 --> 00:18:14.280

  • KINGDOM OF GOD TO BE AT HAND.
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:39.050

  • PROPHECIES OF OLD TO COME TO
  • 00:18:40.150 --> 00:18:41.140
  • FRUITION, THAT THERE WOULD BE A

  • PERSONALLY.
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.200
  • SO I KNOW OUR NATION IS IN

  • I JUST WANT TO SUGGEST TO YOU
  • 00:19:51.200 --> 00:19:52.250
  • THE POSSIBILITY THAT SOMETIMES,
  • 00:19:52.250 --> 00:19:54.200
  • SOMETIMES YOUR DIFFICULTIES ARE
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:19:57.240
  • LESS ABOUT THE ENEMY BEING
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:19:59.220
  • AND MORE ABOUT GOD WANTING TO
  • 00:20:03.000 --> 00:20:03.290
  • SHOW YOU WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:05.000

  • SOMETIMES THE STUFF THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:20:07.060 --> 00:20:09.250
  • FACING, THE STUFF THAT I'M
  • 00:20:09.250 --> 00:20:11.250
  • FACING THAT ARE DIFFICULT, IT'S
  • 00:20:11.250 --> 00:20:14.240
  • LESS ABOUT THE ENEMY BEING
  • 00:20:14.240 --> 00:20:15.280
  • AGAINST YOU, AND SOMETIMES IT'S
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:16.250
  • JUST ABOUT GOD ALLOWING A STAGE
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:17.170
  • TO BE SET IN YOUR LIFE TO WHERE,
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:19.090
  • WHEN HE SHOWS UP, YOU WILL

  • NEVER, EVER DOUBT AGAIN THAT
  • 00:20:20.230 --> 00:20:22.090
  • YOU'VE HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:23.170
  • JESUS.
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:24.220
  • SO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL NEED
  • 00:20:24.220 --> 00:20:27.130
  • AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:29.050
  • THEY NEED AN ENCOUNTER WITH
  • 00:20:29.050 --> 00:20:30.240
  • JESUS CHRIST, AND, FINALLY,
  • 00:20:30.240 --> 00:20:32.040
  • JESUS ARRIVES ON THE SCENE.
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:34.220
  • AFTER 400 YEARS OF SILENCE
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:36.040
  • BETWEEN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND
  • 00:20:36.040 --> 00:20:38.200
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT, JESUS ARRIVES
  • 00:20:38.200 --> 00:20:39.120
  • ON THE SCENE.
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:40.000
  • AFTER CENTURIES OF WAITING,
  • 00:20:40.000 --> 00:20:41.270
  • AFTER PROPHECY DESIRING TO BE
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:44.120
  • FULFILLED, JESUS SHOWS UP ON THE
  • 00:20:44.120 --> 00:20:45.120
  • SCENE.
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:46.210
  • THEIR HOPE HAS FINALLY BEEN
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.060
  • FULFILLED, BUT HERE'S THE
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:49.280
  • TRAGEDY.
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:50.150
  • WHEN HE COMES, HE DOES NOT COME
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:53.200
  • AS THEY SUPPOSED HE WOULD.
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:55.150
  • HE IS NOT ON A THRONE.
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:58.050
  • HE IS NOT RIDING A WHITE HORSE.
  • 00:20:58.050 --> 00:20:59.120
  • HE IS NOT COMING IN POWER AND
  • 00:20:59.120 --> 00:21:01.010
  • VENGEANCE AND AUTHORITY THAT
  • 00:21:01.010 --> 00:21:02.080
  • THEY HAD MIRRORED IN THEIR
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:03.290
  • OPPRESSORS, THAT THEY HAD
  • 00:21:03.290 --> 00:21:05.190
  • PICTURED THAT THEIR MESSIAH
  • 00:21:05.190 --> 00:21:06.220
  • WOULD COME IN.
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:07.090
  • NO, HE IS BORN AS A BABY.
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:09.060
  • ALL OF THAT DEITY AND AUTHORITY
  • 00:21:09.060 --> 00:21:11.200
  • AND MIRACULOUS WORKING POWER
  • 00:21:11.200 --> 00:21:13.180
  • THAT THEY LONGED FOR WAS
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:15.080
  • PACKAGED IN THE SKIN OF
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:16.100
  • HUMANITY, AND A SMALL HUMAN AT
  • 00:21:16.100 --> 00:21:17.210
  • THAT.
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:19.080
  • THIS IS NOT WHAT THEY WANTED.
  • 00:21:19.080 --> 00:21:20.190
  • IT'S NOT WHAT THEY RECOGNIZED.
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:22.040
  • IT WASN'T THE EXPECTATION THEY
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:23.270
  • HAD BUILT UP IN THEIR HEADS.
  • 00:21:23.270 --> 00:21:25.230
  • SO WHEN HE CAME, THEY DID NOT
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:27.290
  • RECOGNIZE HIM.
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:30.070
  • WHEN HE SHOWED UP, BECAUSE HE
  • 00:21:30.070 --> 00:21:32.020
  • WAS NOT IN THE PACKAGE THAT THEY
  • 00:21:32.020 --> 00:21:33.290
  • HAD PICTURED IN THEIR MINDS, HE
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:35.250
  • DIDN'T COME IN THE PACKAGE THEY
  • 00:21:36.140 --> 00:21:39.140
  • HAD PRAYED FOR, HE HAD COME IN A
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:41.100
  • DIFFERENT WAY BECAUSE HE DID NOT
  • 00:21:41.100 --> 00:21:43.250
  • MEET THEIR EXPECTATIONS WHEN HE
  • 00:21:43.250 --> 00:21:45.190
  • SHOWED UP.
  • 00:21:45.190 --> 00:21:47.010
  • THEY DID NOT RECOGNIZE HIM.
  • 00:21:47.010 --> 00:21:48.190
  • IN THE PASSAGE THAT WE READ,
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:51.120
  • JESUS IS BEING BROUGHT INTO THE
  • 00:21:51.120 --> 00:21:52.180
  • TEMPLE.
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:53.060
  • HE IS BEING CARRIED BY HIS
  • 00:21:53.060 --> 00:21:55.000
  • MOTHER, MARY.
  • 00:21:55.000 --> 00:21:56.170
  • JOSEPH IS ALONG FOR THE RIDE AS
  • 00:21:56.170 --> 00:21:58.130
  • WELL.
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:21:59.030
  • THEY HAVE COME WITH JESUS, ABOUT
  • 00:21:59.030 --> 00:22:00.110
  • 40 DAYS OLD, INTO THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:02.070
  • THEY ARE IN A RELIGIOUS
  • 00:22:02.070 --> 00:22:04.230
  • GATHERING WHERE PEOPLE HAVE COME
  • 00:22:04.230 --> 00:22:06.170
  • TO PERFORM THEIR RELIGIOUS
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:08.040
  • DUTIES, AND ALL THE PEOPLE WHO

  • PRESENCE OF THE ONE THEY PRAYED
  • 00:22:13.020 --> 00:22:14.050
  • FOR AND DO NOT KNOW HIM WHEN HE
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:15.150
  • COMES.
  • 00:22:15.150 --> 00:22:18.030
  • WOULD YOU PLEASE NOTICE THAT
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:19.270
  • THEY ARE NOT JUST ANYWHERE.
  • 00:22:19.270 --> 00:22:20.170
  • THEY ARE IN THE TEMPLE AND STILL
  • 00:22:20.170 --> 00:22:22.040
  • DON'T RECOGNIZE THE PRESENCE OF
  • 00:22:22.040 --> 00:22:24.130
  • GOD.
  • 00:22:24.130 --> 00:22:26.020
  • I WANNA SUGGEST TO YOU THAT IT
  • 00:22:26.020 --> 00:22:28.180
  • IS POSSIBLE TO BE AT PROPEL AND
  • 00:22:28.180 --> 00:22:30.040
  • NOT SEE JESUS.
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:32.290
  • I WANNA TELL YOU THAT IT IS
  • 00:22:32.290 --> 00:22:34.230
  • POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO BE IN YOUR

  • CHURCH EVERY SINGLE SUNDAY,
  • 00:22:36.020 --> 00:22:36.220
  • WHICH I PRAY YOU ARE, BUT YOU
  • 00:22:36.220 --> 00:22:37.220
  • CAN BE IN YOUR CHURCH AND NOT

  • HAVE AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS.
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:41.050
  • I WANNA TELL YOU THAT I'M SO
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:43.180

  • STUDIES.
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:47.010
  • STAY IN BIBLE STUDY, BUT YOU CAN
  • 00:22:47.010 --> 00:22:48.020
  • READ A VERSE A DAY TO KEEP THE
  • 00:22:48.020 --> 00:22:49.160
  • DEVIL AWAY UNTIL YOU ARE BLUE IN
  • 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:50.170
  • THE FACE, BUT IF YOU READ THE
  • 00:22:50.170 --> 00:22:52.010
  • SCRIPTURES WITH A HARDENED

  • WITH JESUS.
  • 00:23:05.260 --> 00:23:07.130
  • ALL THESE PEOPLE WERE IN THE

  • NOT KNOW HIM WHEN HE CAME
  • 00:23:12.150 --> 00:23:14.100
  • BECAUSE, OFTENTIMES, MANY TIMES,

  • EXPECT.
  • 00:23:24.220 --> 00:23:25.240
  • WHY?
  • 00:23:26.090 --> 00:23:29.090
  • BECAUSE HIS WAYS ARE NOT OUR

  • 00:23:30.000 --> 00:23:30.250
  • HIS THOUGHTS ARE NOT OUR
  • 00:23:30.250 --> 00:23:32.020
  • THOUGHTS.
  • 00:23:32.020 --> 00:23:33.120
  • AS HIGH AS THE HEAVENS ARE ABOVE
  • 00:23:33.120 --> 00:23:34.180
  • THE EARTH, THAT'S HOW HIGH HIS
  • 00:23:34.180 --> 00:23:35.180
  • WAYS AND HIS THOUGHTS ARE ABOVE
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:37.260
  • OUR OWN, AND WHAT I ATTEMPT TO
  • 00:23:37.260 --> 00:23:40.100
  • DO, WHAT YOU OFTEN ATTEMPT TO
  • 00:23:40.100 --> 00:23:42.080
  • DO, I'M SURE, IS TO DUMB HIM
  • 00:23:42.080 --> 00:23:44.210
  • DOWN SO THAT HIS WAYS MATCH OUR
  • 00:23:44.210 --> 00:23:46.140
  • WAYS, HIS THOUGHTS MATCH OUR
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:48.120
  • THOUGHTS.
  • 00:23:48.120 --> 00:23:49.000
  • WE WANT HIM TO ANSWER OUR
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:50.030
  • PRAYERS THE WAY WE'VE PRAYED
  • 00:23:50.030 --> 00:23:50.290
  • THEM.
  • 00:23:50.290 --> 00:23:52.080
  • WE WANT THE SOLUTIONS THAT WORK
  • 00:23:52.080 --> 00:23:53.280
  • OUT IN OUR MINDS TO BE THE
  • 00:23:53.280 --> 00:23:55.050
  • SOLUTIONS THAT WILL BE BEST,
  • 00:23:55.050 --> 00:23:56.160
  • GIVEN THE SCENARIO THAT WE SEE,
  • 00:23:56.160 --> 00:23:58.100
  • GIVEN THE PRAYER REQUESTS THAT
  • 00:23:58.100 --> 00:23:59.260
  • WE'VE PRAYED, BUT, Y'ALL,
  • 00:23:59.260 --> 00:24:01.070
  • SOMETIMES WE PRAY FOR GROWTH,
  • 00:24:01.070 --> 00:24:02.280
  • AND HE ANSWERS WITH RAIN.
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:05.070
  • SOMETIMES WE PRAY FOR OAK TREES,
  • 00:24:05.070 --> 00:24:07.270
  • AND HE ANSWERS WITH AN ACORN.
  • 00:24:07.270 --> 00:24:10.230
  • AND WHEN THE ANSWER COMES FOR
  • 00:24:11.090 --> 00:24:14.090
  • YOUR MARRIAGE, WHEN THE ANSWER
  • 00:24:14.090 --> 00:24:16.220
  • COMES FOR YOUR PARENTING, WHEN
  • 00:24:16.220 --> 00:24:17.210
  • THE SOLUTION THAT GOD-- LISTEN,
  • 00:24:17.210 --> 00:24:18.230
  • TODAY GOD IS GONNA GIVE SOME OF
  • 00:24:18.230 --> 00:24:20.040
  • YOU SOLUTIONS AND DIVINE
  • 00:24:20.040 --> 00:24:21.210
  • STRATEGIES FOR THINGS THAT ARE
  • 00:24:21.210 --> 00:24:23.120
  • HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE AND ON
  • 00:24:23.120 --> 00:24:24.200
  • YOUR JOB AND IN YOUR FINANCES,
  • 00:24:24.200 --> 00:24:26.170
  • THE STRUGGLES THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:24:26.170 --> 00:24:28.080
  • FACING, AND I'M SAYING, WHEN HE
  • 00:24:28.080 --> 00:24:29.230
  • ANSWERS, IF THE ANSWER DOES NOT
  • 00:24:29.230 --> 00:24:31.230
  • COME IN THE PACKAGE THAT YOU
  • 00:24:31.230 --> 00:24:33.110
  • HAVE EXPECTED, WILL YOU MISS IT
  • 00:24:33.110 --> 00:24:34.100
  • BECAUSE YOU WANT YOUR WAY, NOT
  • 00:24:34.100 --> 00:24:36.180
  • HIS WAY?
  • 00:24:36.180 --> 00:24:38.090
  • AND SO, JESUS, HE COMES, AND
  • 00:24:38.090 --> 00:24:39.210
  • HE'S IN A POOL OF RELIGIOUS
  • 00:24:39.210 --> 00:24:42.200
  • PEOPLE, AND THEY DO NOT
  • 00:24:42.200 --> 00:24:43.200
  • RECOGNIZE THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:24:43.200 --> 00:24:45.140
  • NEAR THEM.
  • 00:24:45.140 --> 00:24:46.260
  • NOW, I WANNA OPEN UP A LITTLE
  • 00:24:46.260 --> 00:24:48.180
  • PARENTHESIS HERE BEFORE WE JUMP
  • 00:24:48.180 --> 00:24:50.190
  • TO A SPECIFIC PERSON THAT I
  • 00:24:50.190 --> 00:24:52.000
  • WANNA DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO.
  • 00:24:52.000 --> 00:24:52.290
  • HE'S THE ONLY PERSON IN THE TEXT
  • 00:24:52.290 --> 00:24:54.140
  • WHO ACTUALLY SEES JESUS.
  • 00:24:54.210 --> 00:24:57.210
  • BUT I WANNA OPEN UP A LITTLE
  • 00:24:57.210 --> 00:25:00.060
  • PARENTHESIS BECAUSE YOU MAY HAVE
  • 00:25:00.060 --> 00:25:01.230
  • RECOGNIZED THAT LUKE WENT INTO A
  • 00:25:01.230 --> 00:25:02.170
  • WHOLE LOT OF DETAIL TO TELL US
  • 00:25:02.170 --> 00:25:03.270
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE TEXT.
  • 00:25:03.270 --> 00:25:04.180
  • THAT'S ONE THING I LOVE ABOUT
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:06.030
  • LUKE IS THAT HE GIVES US
  • 00:25:06.030 --> 00:25:06.210
  • DETAILS.
  • 00:25:06.210 --> 00:25:08.010
  • I LIKE ALL THE JUICE AND ALL THE
  • 00:25:08.010 --> 00:25:09.060
  • DETAILS OUT OF THE TEXT SO THAT
  • 00:25:09.060 --> 00:25:10.290
  • I CAN GET A FULL PICTURE PAINTED
  • 00:25:10.290 --> 00:25:12.140
  • OF WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE
  • 00:25:12.140 --> 00:25:14.010
  • STORY, AND LUKE WANTS US TO KNOW
  • 00:25:14.010 --> 00:25:15.230
  • THAT MARY AND JOSEPH ARE COMING
  • 00:25:15.230 --> 00:25:17.130
  • FOR THE CEREMONIAL DEDICATION OF
  • 00:25:17.130 --> 00:25:19.030
  • THEIR FIRSTBORN SON.
  • 00:25:19.030 --> 00:25:21.000
  • IT'S WHAT EVERYBODY DID.
  • 00:25:21.000 --> 00:25:22.020
  • THEY WOULD COME TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:25:22.020 --> 00:25:23.140
  • PARTICULARLY DURING THIS TIME
  • 00:25:23.140 --> 00:25:24.200
  • WHEN THEY HAD A NEWBORN SON, TO
  • 00:25:24.200 --> 00:25:26.120
  • PRESENT THEIR NEWBORN SON TO THE
  • 00:25:26.120 --> 00:25:28.100
  • LORD.
  • 00:25:28.100 --> 00:25:29.270
  • GET THE PICTURE OF THIS.
  • 00:25:29.270 --> 00:25:31.210
  • THE LORD, IN THIS CASE, IS BEING
  • 00:25:31.210 --> 00:25:33.180
  • PRESENTED TO THE LORD, AND THEY
  • 00:25:33.180 --> 00:25:36.050
  • COME IN, AND LUKE WRITES AND
  • 00:25:36.100 --> 00:25:39.100
  • TELLS US EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:25:39.100 --> 00:25:41.120
  • WITH THEM, OTHER THAN THE BABY
  • 00:25:41.120 --> 00:25:42.240
  • JESUS.
  • 00:25:42.240 --> 00:25:43.080
  • SAYS THAT MARY HAD TWO
  • 00:25:43.090 --> 00:25:46.090
  • TURTLEDOVES OR TWO PIGEONS FOR
  • 00:25:46.090 --> 00:25:47.240
  • HER SACRIFICE.
  • 00:25:47.240 --> 00:25:49.160
  • NOW, THAT WOULDN'T REALLY BE OF
  • 00:25:49.160 --> 00:25:51.120
  • INTEREST EXCEPT THAT WE KNOW
  • 00:25:51.120 --> 00:25:53.080
  • FROM LEVITICUS, FROM THE
  • 00:25:53.080 --> 00:25:54.190
  • SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM THAT HAD BEEN
  • 00:25:54.190 --> 00:25:55.290
  • SET UP, DIVINELY MANDATED BY GOD
  • 00:25:55.290 --> 00:25:57.000
  • IN LEVITICUS, THAT, WHEN SOMEONE
  • 00:25:57.000 --> 00:25:59.220
  • CAME TO MAKE THEIR SACRIFICES,
  • 00:25:59.220 --> 00:26:01.110
  • THEY DID NEED TWO ANIMALS TO BE
  • 00:26:01.110 --> 00:26:04.070
  • SACRIFICED: ONE WAS A PIGEON OR
  • 00:26:04.070 --> 00:26:05.250
  • A TURTLEDOVE.
  • 00:26:05.250 --> 00:26:06.260
  • THE OTHER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A
  • 00:26:06.260 --> 00:26:08.120
  • LAMB; THAT THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:26:08.120 --> 00:26:10.010
  • BRING A LAMB WITH THEM.
  • 00:26:10.010 --> 00:26:11.220
  • BUT WE FIND IN LUKE'S GOSPEL
  • 00:26:11.220 --> 00:26:13.230
  • THAT HE'S MADE SURE WE KNOW
  • 00:26:13.230 --> 00:26:15.050
  • MARY AND JOSEPH DO NOT HAVE
  • 00:26:15.050 --> 00:26:17.130
  • THEIR OWN LAMB.
  • 00:26:17.290 --> 00:26:20.290
  • LEVITICUS CHAPTER 12 TELLS US
  • 00:26:20.290 --> 00:26:22.010
  • THAT THERE WAS A CAVEAT FOR WHY
  • 00:26:22.010 --> 00:26:23.270
  • SOMEONE WOULD NOT BRING A LAMB
  • 00:26:23.270 --> 00:26:26.080
  • TO BE SACRIFICED.
  • 00:26:26.080 --> 00:26:28.010
  • THERE'S ONE LITTLE VERSE,
  • 00:26:28.010 --> 00:26:29.180
  • LEVITICUS CHAPTER 12, VERSE 8,
  • 00:26:29.180 --> 00:26:30.170
  • OR SO, THAT SAYS,
  • 00:26:30.170 --> 00:26:31.260
  • IF SOMEONE COULD NOT
  • 00:26:31.260 --> 00:26:33.070
  • AFFORD A LAMB, IF THEIR
  • 00:26:33.070 --> 00:26:34.200
  • FINANCIAL RESOURCES WERE SO THAT
  • 00:26:35.200 --> 00:26:38.200
  • THEY COULD NOT BUY FOR THEMSELF
  • 00:26:38.200 --> 00:26:39.220
  • THERE WOULD BE AN EXCEPTION
  • 00:26:45.060 --> 00:26:45.260
  • MADE FOR THEM.
  • 00:26:45.260 --> 00:26:46.100
  • THEY COULD BRING TWO
  • 00:26:46.100 --> 00:26:46.270
  • TURTLEDOVES.
  • 00:26:46.270 --> 00:26:47.190
  • INSTEAD OF ONE TURTLEDOVE AND A
  • 00:26:47.190 --> 00:26:49.090
  • LAMB, THEY COULD JUST BRING TWO
  • 00:26:49.090 --> 00:26:50.010
  • TURTLEDOVES, BUT THAT WAS A
  • 00:26:50.010 --> 00:26:51.090
  • SYMBOL OF THE FACT THAT THEY
  • 00:26:51.090 --> 00:26:54.000
  • THEY DID NOT HAVE THE FINANCES
  • 00:26:56.270 --> 00:26:58.180
  • TO BUY THEIR OWN LAMB, WHICH
  • 00:26:58.180 --> 00:26:59.190
  • MEANS, WHEN MARY AND JOSEPH CAME
  • 00:26:59.190 --> 00:27:02.150
  • ON THAT PARTICULAR DAY WITH
  • 00:27:02.150 --> 00:27:04.100
  • PEOPLE WOULD'VE AUTOMATICALLY
  • 00:27:07.140 --> 00:27:08.120
  • LOOKED AT THEM AND RECOGNIZED
  • 00:27:08.120 --> 00:27:09.030
  • THEM AS A COUPLE WHO HAD
  • 00:27:09.030 --> 00:27:11.160
  • INSUFFICIENT FUNDS, AS A COUPLE
  • 00:27:11.160 --> 00:27:13.290
  • WHO WAS INADEQUATE IN SOME WAY,
  • 00:27:13.290 --> 00:27:15.260
  • AS A COUPLE WHO HAD LACK AND WHO
  • 00:27:15.260 --> 00:27:17.150
  • HAD NEEDS.
  • 00:27:17.150 --> 00:27:20.000
  • I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE TURNED
  • 00:27:20.000 --> 00:27:20.220
  • THEIR NOSES UP AT THE COUPLE WHO
  • 00:27:20.220 --> 00:27:22.160
  • COULD NOT AFFORD THEIR OWN LAMB?
  • 00:27:22.160 --> 00:27:23.240
  • I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE IGNORED
  • 00:27:23.240 --> 00:27:26.050
  • THE POOR COUPLE WHO DIDN'T FIT
  • 00:27:26.050 --> 00:27:28.030
  • IN WITH EVERYBODY ELSE WHO HAD
  • 00:27:28.030 --> 00:27:31.000
  • BEEN ABLE TO PURCHASE THEIR OWN
  • 00:27:31.000 --> 00:27:31.290
  • LAMB?
  • 00:27:31.290 --> 00:27:32.200
  • I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE DID NOT
  • 00:27:32.200 --> 00:27:34.120
  • GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE AN
  • 00:27:34.120 --> 00:27:36.060
  • ENCOUNTER WITH THE BABY JESUS
  • 00:27:36.060 --> 00:27:37.190
  • BECAUSE THEY IGNORED THE PEOPLE
  • 00:27:37.190 --> 00:27:40.080
  • WHO HAD HIM CARRIED IN THEIR
  • 00:27:40.080 --> 00:27:41.040
  • ARMS?
  • 00:27:41.040 --> 00:27:43.210
  • I WANNA SPEAK TO ANYBODY WHO'S
  • 00:27:43.210 --> 00:27:46.000
  • IN THIS ROOM AND YOU'VE EVER
  • 00:27:46.000 --> 00:27:47.230
  • FELT EXCLUDED OR IGNORED FROM
  • 00:27:47.230 --> 00:27:49.220
  • THE CLIQUE OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:27:49.220 --> 00:27:51.070
  • THE MONEY TO BUY THEIR OWN LAMB.
  • 00:27:51.070 --> 00:27:53.000
  • THEY DRIVE THE CAR, AND THEY
  • 00:27:53.000 --> 00:27:54.090
  • LIVE IN THE HOUSE, AND THEY'RE
  • 00:27:54.090 --> 00:27:55.190
  • ABLE TO COMMUNICATE OR TO
  • 00:27:55.190 --> 00:27:58.110
  • EXPERIENCE LIFE IN A CERTAIN WAY
  • 00:27:58.110 --> 00:28:00.070
  • THAT, MAN, YOU JUST CAN'T
  • 00:28:00.070 --> 00:28:01.110
  • AFFORD.
  • 00:28:01.110 --> 00:28:03.140
  • MAYBE YOU'VE GOT LACK
  • 00:28:03.140 --> 00:28:04.060
  • FINANCIALLY, OR YOU'VE GOT LACK
  • 00:28:04.060 --> 00:28:05.220
  • EMOTIONALLY, YOU HAVE LACK
  • 00:28:05.220 --> 00:28:07.110
  • RELATIONALLY.
  • 00:28:07.110 --> 00:28:08.260
  • YOU HAVE POURED EVERYTHING OUT,
  • 00:28:08.260 --> 00:28:11.000
  • AND YOU FIND THAT YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:28:11.000 --> 00:28:12.150
  • INSUFFICIENT FUNDS IN SOME WAY
  • 00:28:12.150 --> 00:28:14.170
  • IN YOUR LIFE, AND YOU CAN'T
  • 00:28:14.170 --> 00:28:15.270
  • AFFORD WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:28:15.270 --> 00:28:17.070
  • EVERYBODY ELSE CAN AFFORD, AND
  • 00:28:17.070 --> 00:28:18.090
  • YOU'VE BEEN IGNORED OR
  • 00:28:18.090 --> 00:28:19.150
  • OSTRACIZED.
  • 00:28:19.150 --> 00:28:21.030
  • PEOPLE HAVE TURNED THEIR NOSES
  • 00:28:21.030 --> 00:28:22.100
  • UP AT YOU.
  • 00:28:22.100 --> 00:28:22.250
  • CAN I JUST TELL YOU THAT
  • 00:28:22.250 --> 00:28:24.110
  • SOMETIMES YOU DON'T NEED TO HAVE
  • 00:28:24.110 --> 00:28:26.180
  • YOUR OWN LAMB WHEN YOU CAN CARRY
  • 00:28:26.180 --> 00:28:28.280
  • THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TAKES AWAY
  • 00:28:28.280 --> 00:28:31.200
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:28:31.200 --> 00:28:33.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:33.170 --> 00:28:35.190
  • IN FACT, THE LAMB IS MOST OFTEN
  • 00:28:36.030 --> 00:28:39.030
  • BEST EXPERIENCED IN THE LIVES OF
  • 00:28:39.030 --> 00:28:41.160
  • THOSE WHO HAVE INSUFFICIENT
  • 00:28:41.160 --> 00:28:42.130
  • FUNDS.
  • 00:28:42.170 --> 00:28:45.170
  • IN FACT, I THINK IT IS OUR
  • 00:28:45.170 --> 00:28:46.170
  • AFFLUENCE THAT KEEPS US FROM
  • 00:28:46.170 --> 00:28:48.020
  • ACTUALLY HAVING AN ENCOUNTER
  • 00:28:48.020 --> 00:28:49.220
  • WITH THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:28:49.220 --> 00:28:50.240
  • WE'VE BECOME SO USED TO BEING
  • 00:28:50.240 --> 00:28:52.110
  • ABLE TO BLESS OURSELVES THAT WE
  • 00:28:52.110 --> 00:28:54.090
  • DON'T HAVE A REAL AUTHENTIC
  • 00:28:54.290 --> 00:28:57.290
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BLESSOR.
  • 00:28:58.140 --> 00:29:01.160
  • WE ARE SO AFFLUENT.
  • 00:29:01.160 --> 00:29:02.250
  • WE HAVE PROSPERITY, PARTICULARLY
  • 00:29:02.250 --> 00:29:03.240
  • IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:29:03.240 --> 00:29:05.040
  • WHERE, LISTEN, IF YOU'RE POOR IN
  • 00:29:05.040 --> 00:29:06.260
  • THIS COUNTRY, YOU'RE RICH IN
  • 00:29:06.260 --> 00:29:07.290
  • OTHER COUNTRIES, AND HERE, WHERE

  • YOU GOT SAVED.
  • 00:35:15.260 --> 00:35:16.130
  • NOW WE NEED TO BE FILLED BY
  • 00:35:16.130 --> 00:35:17.270
  • GOD'S SPIRIT AS WE YIELD TO HIS

  • ARE MOLDED INTO THE IMAGE OF
  • 00:35:33.070 --> 00:35:34.120

  • YOUR OWN NATURAL DESIRES AND
  • 00:36:37.060 --> 00:36:38.200
  • PROPENSITIES, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE

  • LEFT TO YOUR OWN, BUT YOU DON'T
  • 00:37:00.120 --> 00:37:02.280
  • JUST GET HIS FRUIT.

  • THROUGH WHICH YOU CAN EDIFY THE

  • BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:37:09.060 --> 00:37:10.120
  • HE TURNS WHAT WOULD'VE MAYBE
  • 00:37:10.120 --> 00:37:12.240
  • POSSIBLY BEEN JUST A TALENT INTO
  • 00:37:12.240 --> 00:37:14.160
  • A GIFT THAT ACTUALLY CAUSES WHAT
  • 00:37:14.160 --> 00:37:17.080
  • YOU DO OR WHAT YOU CRAFT TO
  • 00:37:17.080 --> 00:37:19.180
  • ACTUALLY GET TO THE HEARTS OF
  • 00:37:19.180 --> 00:37:21.140
  • THE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE SINGING
  • 00:37:21.140 --> 00:37:23.040
  • TO OR SPEAKING TO OR DANCING
  • 00:37:23.040 --> 00:37:24.240
  • FOR, OR WRITING TO.
  • 00:37:24.240 --> 00:37:26.150
  • THOSE PEOPLE NOW DON'T JUST READ
  • 00:37:26.150 --> 00:37:28.280
  • WORDS ON A PAGE THAT YOU WROTE.
  • 00:37:28.280 --> 00:37:30.170
  • NOW THE WORDS ARE LIKE FIRE SHUT
  • 00:37:30.170 --> 00:37:32.120
  • UP IN THEIR SOUL.
  • 00:37:32.120 --> 00:37:33.280
  • IT CHANGES THEIR HEART.
  • 00:37:33.280 --> 00:37:35.120
  • IT RENEWS THEIR MIND.
  • 00:37:35.120 --> 00:37:37.010
  • IT ACCOMPLISHES SPIRITUAL
  • 00:37:37.010 --> 00:37:38.240
  • PURPOSES IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:37:38.240 --> 00:37:40.050
  • SO, LISTEN, IF YOU'RE A WRITER,
  • 00:37:40.050 --> 00:37:41.150
  • WELL, THEN, WRITE.
  • 00:37:41.150 --> 00:37:43.040
  • DO YOUR BEST WORK, BUT IN THE
  • 00:37:43.040 --> 00:37:44.220
  • END, WHAT YOU'RE PRAYIN' FOR IS
  • 00:37:44.220 --> 00:37:46.230
  • THAT GOD'S SPIRIT WILL ANOINT
  • 00:37:46.230 --> 00:37:48.140
  • YOUR WORDS WITH POWER AND WITH
  • 00:37:48.140 --> 00:37:51.120
  • FIRE TO AFFECT PEOPLE FOR THE
  • 00:37:51.120 --> 00:37:52.280
  • GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:37:52.280 --> 00:37:53.260
  • DON'T JUST SPEAK.
  • 00:37:53.260 --> 00:37:56.260
  • ASK GOD FOR FIRE ON YOUR
  • 00:37:56.260 --> 00:37:59.170
  • MESSAGE.
  • 00:37:59.170 --> 00:38:02.080
  • DON'T JUST DANCE.
  • 00:38:02.080 --> 00:38:04.080
  • PERFECT YOUR CRAFT, BUT IN THE
  • 00:38:04.080 --> 00:38:05.180
  • END, WHAT YOU'RE LOOKIN' FOR IS
  • 00:38:05.180 --> 00:38:07.000
  • NOT JUST TALENTS.
  • 00:38:07.000 --> 00:38:09.020
  • WHAT YOU WANT IS A GIFT, AND
  • 00:38:09.290 --> 00:38:12.290
  • THERE'S NO AMOUNT OF
  • 00:38:12.290 --> 00:38:13.180
  • MANUFACTURING THAT CAN GIVE WHAT
  • 00:38:13.180 --> 00:38:15.010
  • ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN GIVE.
  • 00:38:15.160 --> 00:38:18.160
  • SO WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT TAKES UP
  • 00:38:18.160 --> 00:38:19.190
  • RESIDENCE ON THE INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:38:19.190 --> 00:38:20.260
  • AND ON THE INSIDE OF ME, AT THE
  • 00:38:20.260 --> 00:38:22.190
  • MOMENT WE ARE SAVED, WE HAVE THE
  • 00:38:22.190 --> 00:38:24.120
  • PRIVILEGE OF HAVING RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:38:24.120 --> 00:38:25.200
  • WITH JESUS CHRIST, HAVING
  • 00:38:25.200 --> 00:38:27.190
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, HAVING
  • 00:38:27.190 --> 00:38:29.030
  • COMMUNICATION WITH HIM BECAUSE
  • 00:38:29.030 --> 00:38:31.070
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT LIVES ON
  • 00:38:31.070 --> 00:38:32.240
  • THE INSIDE OF US, THAT, IF--
  • 00:38:32.240 --> 00:38:33.260
  • WHEN GOD SENT HIS SON JESUS TO
  • 00:38:33.260 --> 00:38:36.080
  • DIE ON THE CROSS, IF, WHEN WE
  • 00:38:36.080 --> 00:38:38.110
  • RECEIVED THAT GIFT, WE GOT A
  • 00:38:38.110 --> 00:38:39.130
  • TICKET TO ETERNITY, AND THAT WAS
  • 00:38:39.130 --> 00:38:42.080
  • ALL WE GOT, JUST THAT WE KNEW WE
  • 00:38:42.080 --> 00:38:44.000
  • WERE SAVED FROM DEATH, HELL, AND
  • 00:38:44.000 --> 00:38:45.190
  • THE GRAVE, AND WE GOT TO
  • 00:38:45.190 --> 00:38:47.080
  • EXPERIENCE ETERNITY WITH JESUS
  • 00:38:47.080 --> 00:38:49.050
  • CHRIST, LISTEN, IF THAT'S ALL WE
  • 00:38:49.050 --> 00:38:50.290
  • EVER GOT OUT OF THIS SALVATION
  • 00:38:50.290 --> 00:38:53.170
  • DEAL, THAT WOULD'VE BEEN ENOUGH
  • 00:38:53.170 --> 00:38:55.080
  • FOR US TO CELEBRATE FOR THE REST
  • 00:38:55.080 --> 00:38:56.030
  • OF OUR DAYS, BUT WHEN THAT
  • 00:38:56.030 --> 00:38:57.240
  • MIGHT'VE BEEN ENOUGH FOR US, IT
  • 00:38:57.240 --> 00:38:59.190
  • WASN'T ENOUGH FOR HIM.
  • 00:38:59.190 --> 00:39:01.140
  • HE SAID, "NO, I'M A SEND YOU THE
  • 00:39:01.140 --> 00:39:03.050
  • HOLY SPIRIT SO THAT YOU DON'T
  • 00:39:03.050 --> 00:39:04.100
  • HAVE TO WAIT TO GET TO HEAVEN TO
  • 00:39:04.100 --> 00:39:06.210
  • EXPERIENCE HEAVEN BUT SO THAT
  • 00:39:06.210 --> 00:39:09.040
  • YOU CAN HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF
  • 00:39:09.040 --> 00:39:11.040
  • HEAVEN RIGHT NOW WHILE YOU'RE
  • 00:39:11.040 --> 00:39:12.150
  • HERE ON PLANET EARTH.
  • 00:39:12.150 --> 00:39:13.080
  • I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU MYSELF IN
  • 00:39:13.080 --> 00:39:14.260
  • THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT SO
  • 00:39:14.260 --> 00:39:16.220
  • THAT YOU WILL SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE
  • 00:39:16.220 --> 00:39:19.010
  • TO WALK WITH ME AND TALK WITH ME
  • 00:39:19.010 --> 00:39:20.140
  • AND HAVE FRIENDSHIP WITH ME, AND
  • 00:39:20.140 --> 00:39:22.040
  • AN ONGOING RELATIONSHIP WITH ME.
  • 00:39:22.040 --> 00:39:25.030
  • THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE
  • 00:39:25.030 --> 00:39:27.140
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT, BUT LUKE SAYS
  • 00:39:27.180 --> 00:39:30.180
  • THAT SIMEON DID NOT JUST HAVE
  • 00:39:32.000 --> 00:39:35.000
  • THE SPIRIT IN HIM.
  • 00:39:35.000 --> 00:39:37.190
  • IT SAYS THAT THE SPIRIT WAS UPON
  • 00:39:37.190 --> 00:39:40.180
  • HIM.
  • 00:39:41.080 --> 00:39:44.080
  • THIS TELLS US THAT THERE IS A
  • 00:39:45.020 --> 00:39:48.020
  • DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SPIRIT
  • 00:39:48.020 --> 00:39:50.200
  • BEING IN YOU AND THE SPIRIT
  • 00:39:50.200 --> 00:39:51.290
  • BEING ON YOU.
  • 00:39:52.100 --> 00:39:55.100
  • I WANNA LIVE A LIFE THAT INVITES
  • 00:39:58.160 --> 00:40:01.160
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD'S SPIRIT ON
  • 00:40:01.160 --> 00:40:03.170
  • ME.
  • 00:40:03.170 --> 00:40:06.080
  • I KNOW HE'S IN ME, BUT I WANT
  • 00:40:06.080 --> 00:40:07.100
  • THE KIND OF LIFE THAT IS A
  • 00:40:07.100 --> 00:40:09.040
  • MAGNET THAT CALLS DOWN THE
  • 00:40:09.040 --> 00:40:11.040
  • GRACE, THE FAVOR, THE ANOINTING,
  • 00:40:11.040 --> 00:40:13.290
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD UPON MY

  • LIFE.
  • 00:40:15.150 --> 00:40:16.010
  • I WANNA LIVE IN SUCH YIELDED
  • 00:40:16.010 --> 00:40:17.190
  • SURRENDER TO HIM THAT NOT JUST
  • 00:40:17.190 --> 00:40:20.060
  • IS HE IN ME-- THAT'S A GIFT THAT
  • 00:40:20.060 --> 00:40:21.250
  • ALL OF US GET WHO HAVE PLACED
  • 00:40:21.250 --> 00:40:24.190
  • FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, BUT I
  • 00:40:24.190 --> 00:40:25.140
  • DON'T JUST WANT HIM IN ME.
  • 00:40:25.140 --> 00:40:26.040
  • I WANT HIM ON MY LIFE.
  • 00:40:26.040 --> 00:40:27.130
  • I WANT THE EVIDENCE OF HIM ON MY

  • LIFE.
  • 00:40:29.110 --> 00:40:31.210
  • I WANT IT SO THAT, WHEN I DO
  • 00:40:31.210 --> 00:40:33.130
  • SOMETHING OR SAY SOMETHING OR
  • 00:40:33.130 --> 00:40:35.040
  • PARTICIPATE IN SOMETHING OR PRAY
  • 00:40:35.040 --> 00:40:36.120
  • OVER SOMETHING, I WANT IT SO
  • 00:40:36.120 --> 00:40:37.220
  • THAT, WHEN I WALK AWAY, PEOPLE
  • 00:40:37.270 --> 00:40:40.270
  • DON'T JUST SAY, "PRISCILLA WAS

  • HERE."
  • 00:40:41.190 --> 00:40:42.030
  • I WANT THEM TO SAY, "NO,
  • 00:40:42.030 --> 00:40:42.270
  • GOD'S PRESENCE WAS HERE."
  • 00:40:42.270 --> 00:40:44.150
  • THAT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN
  • 00:40:44.150 --> 00:40:45.230
  • THE SPIRIT OF GOD

  • AND SO IF YOU WANNA MOTHER YOUR

  • KIDS IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU
  • 00:40:51.100 --> 00:40:52.180
