  • WELCOME TO THE BEST OF 2018.
  • 00:00:04.100 --> 00:00:09.250
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:00:09.270 --> 00:00:18.050
  • JOY!
  • 00:00:18.070 --> 00:00:19.050
  • LET IT MOVE YOU
  • 00:00:19.070 --> 00:00:20.280
  • WELL, JUST LET IT MOVE
  • 00:00:21.000 --> 00:00:22.280
  • GO LET IT MOVE YOU
  • 00:00:23.000 --> 00:00:25.020
  • YEAH, I CHOOSE JOY
  • 00:00:25.040 --> 00:00:27.090
  • LET IT MOVE YOU
  • 00:00:27.110 --> 00:00:28.250
  • OH, LET IT MOVE YOU
  • 00:00:28.270 --> 00:00:31.080
  • LET IT MOVE YOU
  • 00:00:31.100 --> 00:00:33.160
  • THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY IN THE SHADOW OF NIGHT
  • 00:00:33.180 --> 00:00:37.180
  • THOUGH WITH YOU BY MY SIDE I'M STEPPING INTO THE NIGHT
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:41.090
  • I CHOOSE JOY
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:43.050
  • LET IT MOVE YOU
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:44.080
  • - THE REASON SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT HAPPY
  • 00:00:44.100 --> 00:00:46.090
  • IS THEY'RE CONSTANTLY GIVING AWAY THEIR JOY.
  • 00:00:46.110 --> 00:00:49.140
  • - I NEED THE JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY DOWN IN MY HEART
  • 00:00:49.160 --> 00:00:54.020
  • DOWN IN MY HEART, TO STAY
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:57.120
  • I NEED THE JOY
  • 00:00:57.140 --> 00:00:58.210
  • - THE SCRIPTURE SAYS NO MAN CAN TAKE YOUR JOY,
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:01:02.000
  • THAT MEANS YOU CONTROL YOUR JOY.
  • 00:01:02.020 --> 00:01:04.200
  • (LIVELY MUSIC)
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:14.200
  • THAT PERSON THAT'S RUDE TO YOU ON THE PHONE
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:16.270
  • THAT YOU'VE NEVER MET, ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE THEM YOUR JOY?
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:20.260
  • (LIVELY MUSIC)
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:27.170
  • - YOU'LL BE HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:30.110
  • AS LONG AS YOU'RE STILL PLANNING FOR TOMORROW.
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:33.220
  • (LIVELY MUSIC)
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:40.080
  • - WE WELCOME YOU RIGHT HERE, IN TUSCANY, IN ITALY.
  • 00:01:40.100 --> 00:01:44.090
  • ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES ON EARTH,
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:47.010
  • THERE MIGHT BE A LITTLE BIT OF MUSIC INVOLVED, LET'S GO.
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:50.090
  • - I THOUGHT SOONER OR LATER THE LIGHTS UP ABOVE
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:55.010
  • WILL COME DOWN IN CIRCLES AND GUIDE ME TO LOVE
  • 00:01:55.030 --> 00:01:59.060
  • BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S RIGHT FOR ME
  • 00:01:59.080 --> 00:02:01.160
  • I CANNOT SEE STRAIGHT
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:03.210
  • I'VE BEEN HERE TOO LONG AND I DON'T WANT TO WAIT FOR IT
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:08.010
  • FLY LIKE A CANNONBALL, STRAIGHT TO MY SOUL
  • 00:02:08.030 --> 00:02:12.140
  • TEAR ME TO PIECES AND MAKE ME FEEL WHOLE
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:16.200
  • I'M WILLING TO FIGHT FOR IT AND CARRY THIS WEIGHT
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:20.280
  • BUT WITH EVERY STEP I KEEP QUESTIONING WHAT IS TRUE
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:27.120
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:02:27.140 --> 00:02:31.080
  • WITH OPEN ARMS
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:35.240
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:02:35.260 --> 00:02:39.190
  • FROM WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:02:39.210 --> 00:02:44.080
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:48.140
  • WITH ALL YOUR LIGHT
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:52.160
  • WITH ALL YOUR LIGHT
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:56.140
  • WITH ALL YOUR LIGHT
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:03:01.060
  • - MATTEO, TELL ME ABOUT THE SONG 'FALL ON ME'.
  • 00:03:01.080 --> 00:03:03.210
  • WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO WORK WITH YOUR VERY WELL KNOWN FATHER.
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:07.270
  • - I MEAN, FOR ME TO SING WITH MY DAD IS SOMETHING USUAL
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:12.280
  • CAUSE WE SING TOGETHER EVERYDAY, WE STUDY TOGETHER
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:16.210
  • AND SO OF COURSE I SEE HIM AS A FATHER
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:21.010
  • AND A DAD AND NOT AS ANDREA BOCELLI.
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:24.210
  • BUT OF COURSE IT'S BEEN AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:27.110
  • TO BE IN THE STUDIO WITH HIM
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:29.090
  • AND WE DID THIS AMAZING DUET THAT
  • 00:03:29.110 --> 00:03:31.240
  • BROUGHT US TO TRAVEL ALL AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:35.050
  • AND VERY VERY HAPPY TO SHARE ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS.
  • 00:03:35.070 --> 00:03:39.050
  • - FALL ON ME
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:43.040
  • ASCOLTAMI
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:47.190
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:03:47.210 --> 00:03:51.250
  • ABBRACCIAMI
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:54.160
  • - I READ A QUOTE FROM YOU THAT
  • 00:03:54.180 --> 00:03:56.230
  • IT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO WONDER
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:04:00.090
  • HOW PEOPLE LIVE WITHOUT A FAITH IN GOD
  • 00:04:00.110 --> 00:04:02.150
  • IN THE TIMES THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:07.020
  • - [TRANSLATOR] I THINK THAT NOT TO BELIEVE
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.070
  • OR TO BELIEVE IN BY CHANCE IS AN ACT OF SURRENDER.
  • 00:04:09.090 --> 00:04:15.120
  • I DON'T EASILY SURRENDER. I PREFER TO FIGHT TO THE END
  • 00:04:15.140 --> 00:04:19.150
  • FOR SOMETHING IMPORTANT, TRUE AND BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:22.220
  • LIFE IS AN EVIDENT MIRACLE,
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:26.050
  • THE FACT THAT FROM NOTHING A BEING WAS MATERIALIZED.
  • 00:04:26.070 --> 00:04:30.170
  • IT WALKS, IT MOVES, IT THINKS
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:33.120
  • AND IT HAS CONSCIOUSNESS OF ITSELF.
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:35.230
  • - I CAN FEEL YOU'RE THERE
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:43.250
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:04:43.270 --> 00:04:47.080
  • ASCOLTAMI
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:52.010
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:04:52.030 --> 00:04:56.010
  • ABBRACCIAMI
  • 00:04:56.030 --> 00:05:00.150
  • FALL ON ME
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:04.120
  • WITH ALL YOUR LIGHT
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:08.170
  • WITH ALL YOUR LIGHT
  • 00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:12.290
  • WITH ALL YOUR LIGHT
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:19.190
  • - WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT IS GIVING THE VIEWERS
  • 00:05:19.210 --> 00:05:24.000
  • REALLY A SORT OF, SHOT IN THE ARM ABOUT THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:29.040
  • I MEAN, THE BOOK HAS CHANGED MORE LIVES
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:32.220
  • THAN ANY BOOK IN HISTORY AND WHAT BETTER WAY
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:37.000
  • TO SPEND YOUR LIFE THAN GOING ON DRAMATIC TRIPS
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:41.210
  • AND SPEND A GOOD CHUNK OF YOUR LIFE FOLLOWING
  • 00:05:41.230 --> 00:05:45.220
  • IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS AND TELLING THE STORIES
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:48.250
  • THAT REALLY WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED
  • 00:05:48.270 --> 00:05:51.030
  • WITHOUT GOD MIRACULOUS HAND.
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:52.220
  • - THIS NEW MOVEMENT WAS KNOWN AS THE WAY,
  • 00:05:52.240 --> 00:05:55.160
  • MOST HISTORIANS AGREE THAT THIS CAME
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:57.230
  • FROM THE VERY WORDS OF JESUS WHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:06:00.100
  • I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE,
  • 00:06:00.120 --> 00:06:03.160
  • NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME, JOHN 14:6.
  • 00:06:03.180 --> 00:06:09.080
  • NOW, REMEMBER THAT MOST OF THESE EARLY,
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:11.080
  • FIRST FOLLOWERS OF JESUS WERE JEWS
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:13.260
  • THAT'S WHY THIS MOVEMENT WAS REFERRED TO
  • 00:06:13.280 --> 00:06:16.020
  • AS A SECT OF JUDAISM, KNOWN AS THE WAY.
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:20.050
  • THIS GROUP WAS GROWING STEADILY AND THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS
  • 00:06:20.070 --> 00:06:23.250
  • HERE IN JERUSALEM WERE TAKING NOTICE.
  • 00:06:23.270 --> 00:06:26.170
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:06:26.190 --> 00:06:28.010
  • THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD RID THEMSELVES
  • 00:06:28.030 --> 00:06:29.230
  • OF THIS JESUS OF NAZARETH BEFORE THE LAST PASSOVER.
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:33.180
  • HIS DISCIPLES HAS ALL DISAPPEARED IN FEAR AND SHAME,
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:38.010
  • NOW THINGS HAD CHANGED, AGAIN.
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:41.120
  • THESE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS HAD COME OUT OF HIDING
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:43.290
  • AND WERE BOLDLY PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS,
  • 00:06:44.010 --> 00:06:47.100
  • RIGHT HERE ON THE TEMPLE GROUNDS.
  • 00:06:47.120 --> 00:06:49.260
  • THIS WAS NOT GOING UNNOTICED, THIS 'NEW WAY' WAS THREATENING
  • 00:06:49.280 --> 00:06:54.230
  • THE ESTABLISHED RELIGIOUS ORDER.
  • 00:06:54.250 --> 00:06:57.030

  • THEY HAVE BEEN USED TO WATCHING.
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:41.260

  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:46.220

  • BLEW UP IN HIS HAND IN 1969.
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:10.000
  • THE DEVASTATING BLAST LEFT HIS FACE AND PARTS OF HIS BODY
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:13.080
  • COVERED WITH PAINFUL THIRD DEGREE BURNS
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:15.120

  • HIS SURVIVAL AND LIFE ARE MIRACULOUS.
  • 00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:19.270
  • TODAY, WITH HIS ENGAGING HUMOR,
  • 00:10:19.290 --> 00:10:22.060
  • DAVE ROEVER IS ENTHUSIASTICALLY RECEIVED BOTH NATIONALLY
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:25.280
  • AND INTERNATIONALLY AS A PUBLIC SPEAKER.
  • 00:10:26.000 --> 00:10:28.280
  • IN EVERY SETTING, MR ROEVER'S MESSAGE IS ONE OF HOPE.
  • 00:10:29.000 --> 00:10:32.110
  • - I'M STANDING HERE TODAY AS LIVING EVIDENCE
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:34.110
  • THAT TOMORROW IS WORTH WAITING FOR, DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:39.170
  • - HE NEVER BLAMED GOD.
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:40.280
  • IN FACT, GOD PRODUCED IN HIM SUCH BOLDNESS
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:44.020
  • THAT HE DECIDED TO FIND A WAY TO REACH OUT
  • 00:10:44.040 --> 00:10:46.080
  • TO THE PEOPLE OF VIETNAM IN TANGIBLE WAYS.
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:49.110
  • SINCE THEN, HE'S BUILT A PEDIATRIC WING
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:51.190
  • AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL AND A CLINIC.
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:53.120
  • HE'S PREACHED AND SHARED JESUS
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:55.040
  • IN SOUTHEAST ASIA FOR DECADES.
  • 00:10:55.060 --> 00:10:57.140
  • AS PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST,
  • 00:10:57.160 --> 00:10:59.190
  • LIVES HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED.
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:01.280
  • AND IF YOU LOOK PAST DAVE'S SCARS, YOU'LL SEE HIS HEART.
  • 00:11:02.000 --> 00:11:05.090
  • - LISA, YOU GO BACK TO HAITI TO HER.
  • 00:11:05.110 --> 00:11:08.250
  • EXPLAIN HOW IS THAT FOR YOU GUYS?
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:11.140
  • - YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T WANT TO AT FIRST,
  • 00:11:11.160 --> 00:11:13.150
  • I'LL TELL YOU WHY I LOVE WHAT GOD'S DOING IN HAITI.
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:21.000
  • I'VE BEEN ON A LOT OF MISSION TRIPS TO A LOT OF PLACES,
  • 00:11:21.020 --> 00:11:23.080
  • HAITI IS THE MOST HEARTBREAKING PLACE I'VE EVER BEEN
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:26.280
  • AND MISSY ALMOST DIED IN HAITI.
  • 00:11:27.000 --> 00:11:29.230
  • AND WHEN HER VILLAGE FOUND OUT
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:31.060
  • SHE HAD NOT JUST HIV BUT TUBERCULOSIS,
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:34.000
  • THEY BASICALLY VOTED TO HAVE HER LEAVE THE VILLAGE
  • 00:11:34.020 --> 00:11:36.180
  • BECAUSE TUBERCULOSIS IS SO CONTAGIOUS.
  • 00:11:36.200 --> 00:11:39.200
  • AND THEN THE ORPHANAGE WHERE MISSY WAS,
  • 00:11:39.220 --> 00:11:42.000
  • THE NANNIES WOULDN'T TOUCH HER BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID
  • 00:11:42.020 --> 00:11:44.100
  • HIV COULD BE TRANSMITTED THROUGH TOUCH,
  • 00:11:44.120 --> 00:11:47.000
  • SO SHE WAS A KID WITHOUT,
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:50.270
  • SHE JUST WAS A KID WITHOUT A HOME.
  • 00:11:50.290 --> 00:11:53.010
  • AND SO BECAUSE SHE ALMOST DIED IN HAITI,
  • 00:11:53.030 --> 00:11:55.160
  • BECAUSE IT TOOK SO LONG TO GET HER HOME.
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:11:57.280
  • ONCE I GOT HER HOME, I WAS LIKE,
  • 00:11:58.000 --> 00:11:59.290
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA MESS WITH MY KID.
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.220
  • YOU DO ANYTHING TO ME, YOU MESS WITH MY KID, I'LL CUT YOU.
  • 00:12:01.240 --> 00:12:05.020
  • AND AFTER SHE'D BEEN HERE AT HOME ABOUT A YEAR,
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:08.200
  • GOD JUST STARTED SAYING VERY CLEARLY TO ME,
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:11.150
  • WHY DON'T YOU GO BACK TO HAITI WITH MISSY?
  • 00:12:11.170 --> 00:12:13.000
  • AND I WAS LIKE, NO SIR I DON'T THINK THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.
  • 00:12:13.020 --> 00:12:16.270
  • I'LL GO BACK TO HAITI,
  • 00:12:16.290 --> 00:12:18.050
  • I'LL GO BACK TO HAITI MULTIPLE TIMES A YEAR
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:19.190
  • BUT I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE MISSY BACK TO HAITI
  • 00:12:19.210 --> 00:12:22.140
  • BECAUSE SHE ALMOST DIED AND THEY DIDN'T WANT HER.
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:25.030
  • AND HE SAID, THAT'S THE POINT, LISA.
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:29.000
  • I WANT YOU TO TAKE A LIFE, THAT ONLY I COULD'VE REDEEMED,
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:31.260
  • BACK TO A PLACE WHERE DEATH TOO IS.
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:35.040
  • - EVERY DAY IS HOLY,
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:39.120
  • HOLY, HOLY
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:43.040
  • EVERY TRIBE, EVERY NATION
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:48.190
  • HOLY, ON EACH GENERATION
  • 00:12:48.210 --> 00:12:54.030
  • - AND HER VILLAGE IS SO IMPOVERISHED
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:56.230
  • THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE DON'T HAVE ELECTRICITY,
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:58.180
  • MUCH LESS THE INTERNET.
  • 00:12:58.200 --> 00:13:00.080
  • THEY ASSUMED MISSY HAD DIED
  • 00:13:00.100 --> 00:13:02.060
  • BECAUSE THE LAST TIME THEY SAW HER,
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:03.220
  • SHE WAS A VERY VERY SICK LITTLE GIRL.
  • 00:13:03.240 --> 00:13:07.000
  • AND WHEN WE STEP OFF THIS BUS FROM PORT-AU-PRICE,
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:11.170
  • IT TAKES ABOUT TWO HOURS TO GET TO HER VILLAGE.
  • 00:13:11.190 --> 00:13:12.250
  • HER OLD VILLAGE,
  • 00:13:12.270 --> 00:13:15.220
  • FOR ANYBODY WHO KNOWS HAITI'S NELIAGAM REGION,
  • 00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:18.020
  • WE STEP OFF THIS DIESEL BUS INTO THIS RURAL VILLAGE
  • 00:13:18.040 --> 00:13:22.000
  • AND WOMEN STARTED SCREAMING.
  • 00:13:22.020 --> 00:13:24.140
  • THEY STARTED SHRIEKING "IT'S A MIRACLE, IT'S A MIRACLE".
  • 00:13:24.160 --> 00:13:27.050
  • WELL THEN, THEY STARTED POINTING AT ME
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:29.110
  • AND SAYING I WAS A HIGH VOODOO PRIESTESS
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:32.050
  • BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED ONLY VOODOO
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:34.060
  • COULD TAKE MISSY FROM NEAR DEATH TO THIS VIBRANT KID
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:38.040
  • WITH ALL THIS ENERGY, WHO'S OBVIOUSLY VERY HEALTHY.
  • 00:13:38.060 --> 00:13:40.220
  • AND I STARTED SAYING NO, NO, JESUS, JESUS.
  • 00:13:40.240 --> 00:13:44.100
  • IT IS A MIRACLE, BUT IT'S JESUS.
  • 00:13:44.120 --> 00:13:46.180
  • - HOLY
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:48.140
  • EACH GENERATION
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.110
  • EACH GENERATION
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:54.090
  • SHALL PRAISE THE LORD
  • 00:13:54.110 --> 00:13:58.060
  • EACH GENERATION
  • 00:13:58.080 --> 00:13:59.150
  • - I SENT MISSY AROUND THE VILLAGE TO INVITE WOMEN,
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:03.160
  • I MEAN THEY WERE JUST STUNNED.
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:05.000
  • BUT TO INVITE WOMEN TO OUR FIRST EVER "WOMEN'S CONFERENCE",
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:08.090
  • YOU KNOW THERE WAS NO POWERPOINT, THERE
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:11.100
  • WAS NO DRY ICE. IT WAS THIS HOT, LITTLE ROOM
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:13.190
  • WHERE WE TALKED ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:14:13.210 --> 00:14:15.140
  • AND WE SAW ALL THESE WOMEN GET SAVED,
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:17.240
  • NOT BECAUSE I'M AN EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:19.170
  • BUT BECAUSE THEY JUST COULD NOT GET PAST
  • 00:14:19.190 --> 00:14:22.270
  • THE FACT THAT THIS HAD TO BE A MIRACLE.
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:25.050
  • AND THE COOLEST THING WAS LAURIE,
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:27.000
  • THAT THE MAIN PROSTITUTE IN MISSY'S VILLAGE,
  • 00:14:27.020 --> 00:14:30.230
  • SHE'S BEAUTIFUL, SHE'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:14:30.250 --> 00:14:33.070
  • SHE GOT SO MAD AT ME, SHE CAME TO THAT LITTLE MEETING
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:36.070
  • AND THEY ASKED ME TO COME OUTSIDE AND TALK WITH HER
  • 00:14:36.090 --> 00:14:38.220
  • AND SHE SAID, I AM SO MAD AT YOU.
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:40.270
  • AND THROUGH AS INTERPRETER, SHE SAID,
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:42.010
  • I'M MAD AT YOU FOR TELLING US LIES
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:44.160
  • AND I SAID, WELL, WHERE DO YOU THINK I'VE TOLD LIES?
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:46.090
  • SHE SAID, THERE IS NO WAY A GOD LIKE THAT
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:49.130
  • COULD ACCEPT A WOMAN LIKE ME.
  • 00:14:49.150 --> 00:14:50.260
  • AND THEN SHE SAID, LET ME TELL YOU WHO I AM.
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:54.090
  • SHE TOLD ME HER STORY AND I SAID,
  • 00:14:54.110 --> 00:14:56.140
  • OH MY GOODNESS, DO YOU KNOW YOUR STORY IS IN THE BIBLE?
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:14:58.270
  • I SAID, HER NAME IS GOMER, IT'S AN AWESOME STORY,
  • 00:14:58.290 --> 00:15:01.260
  • AND SHE WAS JUST STUNNED.
  • 00:15:01.280 --> 00:15:03.240
  • TWO WEEKS LATER, PEARLY CAME TO CHRIST,
  • 00:15:03.260 --> 00:15:06.260
  • NOW SHE'S LEADING ALL THESE WOMEN IN HER VILLAGE TO CHRIST.
  • 00:15:06.280 --> 00:15:11.130
  • - EACH GENERATION
  • 00:15:11.150 --> 00:15:15.140
  • SHALL PRAISE THE LORD
  • 00:15:15.160 --> 00:15:19.000
  • EACH GENERATION
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:21.010
  • EACH GENERATION
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:25.290
  • SHALL PRAISE THE LORD
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:33.080
  • - [JOHN GRAY] WE WILL RIGHT NOW BEGIN TO RISE UP,
  • 00:15:33.100 --> 00:15:35.260
  • NOT ONLY PHYSICALLY BUT SPIRITUALLY
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:37.290
  • AND DECLARE THAT THERE IS ONE CHURCH, ONE LORD,
  • 00:15:38.010 --> 00:15:41.030
  • ONE FAITH AND ONE BAPTISM, ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL.
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:45.070
  • THERE IS NO WHITE CHURCH, THERE IS NO BLACK CHURCH,
  • 00:15:45.090 --> 00:15:48.250
  • THERE IS NO HISPANIC CHURCH, THERE IS NO CHINESE CHURCH,
  • 00:15:48.270 --> 00:15:52.270
  • THERE IS NO NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH,
  • 00:15:52.290 --> 00:15:55.100
  • THERE IS NO JAMAICAN CHURCH, THERE IS NO ENGLISH CHURCH,
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:59.040
  • THERE IS NO SWEDISH CHURCH, THERE IS ONE CHURCH.
  • 00:15:59.060 --> 00:16:02.120
  • AND THERE IS ONLY ONE COLOR THAT MATTERS
  • 00:16:02.140 --> 00:16:04.220
  • AND IT IS RED AND IT IS THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:07.170
  • AND SO WE LAY DOWN AND WE PICK UP THE KINGDOM,
  • 00:16:07.190 --> 00:16:11.220
  • FOR JESUS IS NOT DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN NOR INDEPENDENT.
  • 00:16:11.240 --> 00:16:16.100
  • HE IS A KING ON A THRONE AND HE IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED.
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:20.240
  • - I'VE BEEN ON THIS MISSION
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:22.280
  • AND IT IS TO SEE PEOPLE COME TOGETHER IN UNITY,
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:26.110
  • ESPECIALLY IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:27.270
  • SO, OUR CHURCH IS PREDOMINANTLY AFRICAN AMERICAN,
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:30.120
  • BUT WE'RE IN A PREDOMINANTLY WHITE AREA.
  • 00:16:30.140 --> 00:16:32.230
  • SO, WE'VE BEEN DOING OUTREACH TO WHITE PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:35.050
  • WE'VE BEEN SAYING COME ON IN, COME AND JOIN US.
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:37.220
  • YOU KNOW, WE'VE BEEN INVITING PEOPLE IN,
  • 00:16:37.240 --> 00:16:39.090
  • I'M LIKE, HEY WE DON'T BITE YOU, COME ON IN.
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:42.040
  • AND PEOPLE, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MANY WHITE PEOPLE'S LIVES,
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:46.000
  • THEY'VE BEEN COMING INTO A PREDOMINANTLY
  • 00:16:46.020 --> 00:16:48.020
  • AFRICAN AMERICAN ENVIRONMENT,
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:49.220
  • NOW THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT, NOT BECAUSE OF SKIN COLOR,
  • 00:16:49.240 --> 00:16:52.270
  • BUT BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE THE MAJORITY CULTURE
  • 00:16:52.290 --> 00:16:56.050
  • OR THE MAJORITY RACE, YOU CAN STAY WITHIN
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:16:59.060
  • YOUR RACIAL COMFORT ZONE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:02.100
  • AND BE COMFORTABLE, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STEP OUT.
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:05.030
  • HOWEVER, AS A MINORITY YOU HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO STEP OUT
  • 00:17:05.050 --> 00:17:08.210
  • OF YOUR RACIAL COMFORT ZONE IF YOU WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:17:08.230 --> 00:17:11.150
  • SO, BEING BLACK WE KNOW A LITTLE BIT MORE,
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:14.170
  • I'M GENERALIZING HERE,
  • 00:17:14.190 --> 00:17:15.260
  • ABOUT STEPPING OUT OF OUR RACIAL COMFORT ZONE.
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:18.240
  • BUT, TO BE WHITE AND PART OF THE MAJORITY CULTURE,
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:22.060
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO,
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:24.210
  • YOU CAN STAY IN AN ALL WHITE SCHOOL, ALL WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD,
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:27.190
  • ALL WHITE CHURCH AND LIVE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:30.110
  • SO, WHAT I'VE BEEN CHALLENGING
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:32.030
  • MY WHITE BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO DO,
  • 00:17:32.050 --> 00:17:33.210
  • IS COME OUT OF THEIR RACIAL COMFORT ZONE,
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:35.200
  • INVITING THEM TO CHURCH,
  • 00:17:35.220 --> 00:17:36.280
  • INVITING THEM TO COME AND WORSHIP WITH US
  • 00:17:37.000 --> 00:17:39.030
  • AND GOD HAS BEEN MOVING LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE.
  • 00:17:39.050 --> 00:17:41.260
  • (CROWD APPLAUD)
  • 00:17:41.280 --> 00:17:43.100
  • - WE SHOULD BE SUPPORTING THE AFRICAN AMERICAN BELIEVERS
  • 00:17:43.120 --> 00:17:46.150
  • AND THE HISPANIC BELIEVERS.
  • 00:17:46.170 --> 00:17:47.290
  • WE ARE A FAMILY, WE ARE ONE BLOOD,
  • 00:17:48.010 --> 00:17:51.010
  • JESUS IS ALL OUR SAVIOR AND IF EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND
  • 00:17:51.030 --> 00:17:55.130
  • (CROWD APPLAUD)
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:56.190
  • THAT WE ARE IN A KINGDOM.
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:58.210
  • WE ARE IN AN ETERNAL, VERY REAL KINGDOM
  • 00:17:58.230 --> 00:18:02.130
  • WITH A VERY REAL KING,
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:05.000
  • WE HAVE OUR PASSPORT WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:18:05.020 --> 00:18:08.120
  • AND IT'S VERY REAL.
  • 00:18:08.140 --> 00:18:09.220
  • SO, WE NEED TO QUIT THE BICKERING, THE FUSSING,
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:12.070
  • THE LOOK TO THE LEFT, LOOK TO THE RIGHT,
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:13.210
  • TURNING ON THE NEWS TO SEE WHAT THEY SAY AND GO BACK
  • 00:18:13.230 --> 00:18:16.120
  • AND LOOK, LET GOD DO THE EXPOSING BECAUSE HE'S DO IT.
  • 00:18:16.140 --> 00:18:19.160
  • - SO, WHERE WAS THE EXPLOSION?
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:21.040
  • IF YOU'RE IN HERE, WHERE WAS THE EXPLOSION?
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:23.270
  • - ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE WAS A LOUD NOISE
  • 00:18:23.290 --> 00:18:26.110
  • AND GLASS CAME FROM THE SIDE
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:30.030
  • AND I TURNED THIS WAY, DON'T KNOW WHY,
  • 00:18:30.050 --> 00:18:32.180
  • I GUESS IT WAS INSTINCTIVELY I DID THAT.
  • 00:18:32.200 --> 00:18:35.010
  • AND I FELL DOWN AND THE OTHER KIDS THAT WERE IN THERE,
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:39.160
  • WE ALL HIT THE FLOOR, DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON.
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:43.160
  • THERE WAS SCREAMING, THE WOMEN YELLING AND CONFUSION.
  • 00:18:43.180 --> 00:18:47.250
  • A GREAT DEAL OF CONFUSION, BUT THERE WAS A LOT OF DEBRIS.
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:51.160
  • THE SCREAMS OF MY MOM, LISTENING TO THE NEWS,
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:55.170
  • I HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:58.150
  • BUT, IT WAS THE SCREAMS,
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:19:00.220
  • OF FINDING OUT
  • 00:19:00.240 --> 00:19:03.290
  • THAT THOSE GIRLS WERE DEAD.
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:07.240
  • YOU SEE, THAT'S WHEN RACIAL HATRED
  • 00:19:07.260 --> 00:19:12.150
  • CAME TO MY CHURCH.
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:15.060
  • THAT'S WHEN BIGOTRY AND HATRED
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:18.290
  • AND MURDER CAME TO MY CHURCH.
  • 00:19:19.010 --> 00:19:21.140
  • A LOVE THAT FORGIVES, THE TYPE OF LOVE OF CHRIST
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:24.260
  • TO FORGIVE NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE DID TO THEM.
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:29.120
  • (SOFT PIANO MUSIC)
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:39.050
  • - IT AFFECTED THE WHOLE CITY WHEN THEY BOMBED THE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:43.200
  • AND I THINK IT WAS,
  • 00:19:43.220 --> 00:19:48.120
  • A FEELING OF,
  • 00:19:48.140 --> 00:19:49.280
  • I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS SYMPATHY OR EMPATHY THAT PEOPLE HATE,
  • 00:19:50.000 --> 00:19:54.270
  • TO KNOW THAT SOME WHITE PEOPLE
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:59.010
  • WOULD TAKE THE LIVES OF INNOCENT CHILDREN
  • 00:19:59.030 --> 00:20:03.220
  • THAT'S ATTENDING INSIDE THE SCHOOL
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:05.270
  • AND FOLKS THAT WAS NOT WHAT YOU CALL, 'IN THE MOVEMENT',
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:09.290
  • THEY BECAME A PART OF THE MOVEMENT.
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:12.100
  • THEN, IT WAS A TURNING POINT.
  • 00:20:12.120 --> 00:20:15.130
  • - WE DEMANDED INTEGRATION ALMOST FROM
  • 00:20:15.150 --> 00:20:17.070
  • THE BEGINNING OF OUR MEETINGS IN THE SOUTH.
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:20.210
  • AND NOW TODAY, IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:20:20.230 --> 00:20:22.170
  • FOR THE PRESENT GENERATION TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:24.250
  • WHAT THINGS WERE IN THOSE DAYS AND WHAT IT TOOK TO BE,
  • 00:20:24.270 --> 00:20:28.110
  • HOW MANY THREATENING LETTERS WE'D GOTTEN,
  • 00:20:28.130 --> 00:20:31.020
  • HOW MANY THREATS AGAINST MY FAMILY
  • 00:20:31.040 --> 00:20:32.250
  • AS A RESULT OF THE STAND THAT WE TOOK AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:20:32.270 --> 00:20:37.010
  • - [NARRATOR] BILLY'S FIRST PUBLIC ACTS AGAINST
  • 00:20:37.030 --> 00:20:39.020
  • RACIAL SEGREGATION TOOK PLACE AT HIS CRUSADES IN THE SOUTH,
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:42.080
  • DURING THE EARLY 1950S.
  • 00:20:42.100 --> 00:20:44.230
  • AT THE TIME, IT WAS COMMON PRACTICE FOR ROPES
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:47.060
  • TO SEPARATE THE WHITE FROM THE BLACK SECTIONS.
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:51.060
  • - [LUIS PALAU] HE WALKED INTO THE CRUSADE
  • 00:20:51.080 --> 00:20:53.100
  • AND THEY HAD ROPES UP.
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:20:54.190
  • BILLY SAW THEM.
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:56.000
  • - BLACKS WERE SUPPOSED TO SIT BACK UP,
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:58.230
  • THE WHITES WOULD SIT IN FRONT.
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:01.030
  • I WAS APPALLED AT IT AND DECIDED THAT
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:04.220
  • I HAD TO SPEAK OUT ON IT, I HAD TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:21:04.240 --> 00:21:07.250
  • I SAID, NO MORE OF THIS AND I WENT TO THE HEAD USHER
  • 00:21:07.270 --> 00:21:12.170
  • AND ASKED HIM IF HE'D REMOVE THE ROPES
  • 00:21:12.190 --> 00:21:15.040
  • AND HE SAID NO, HE WOULDN'T.
  • 00:21:15.060 --> 00:21:17.040
  • - [LUIS PALAU] BILLY GOT UP FROM THE PLATFORM
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:18.260
  • AND HE WALKED DOWN PAST THE USHERS
  • 00:21:18.280 --> 00:21:21.070
  • AND TOOK THE ROPES DOWN HIMSELF.
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:23.260
  • - CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A WHITE MAN'S RELIGION
  • 00:21:23.280 --> 00:21:26.170
  • AND DON'T LET ANYBODY EVER TELL YOU
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:27.270
  • THAT IT'S WHITE OR BLACK.
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:29.290
  • CHRIST BELONGS TO ALL PEOPLE, HE BELONGS TO THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:21:30.010 --> 00:21:36.240
  • HIS GOSPEL IS FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:40.220
  • - ONE OF OUR SUPER ACCOMPLISHMENT WAS
  • 00:21:40.240 --> 00:21:42.150
  • THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO INFLUENCE PRESIDENTS,
  • 00:21:42.170 --> 00:21:45.200
  • MILITARY PERSONNEL, INCLUDING DICTATORS,
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:48.290
  • FOR THE GOOD, TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:51.080
  • TO MAKE THEM SEE THE NATURE OF THE POSITION
  • 00:21:51.100 --> 00:21:54.000
  • THAT GOD GAVE THEM AS FROM GOD.
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:56.120
  • AND I LEARNED WATCHING BILLY GRAHAM,
  • 00:21:56.140 --> 00:21:58.110
  • I LEARNED JUST TO BE UNASHAMED
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:22:00.040
  • AND BEING RESPECTFUL, HUMILITY, JUST SERVE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:22:00.060 --> 00:22:05.160
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
  • 00:22:05.180 --> 00:22:08.040
  • YOU'RE NOT THERE JUST AS ANOTHER WEASEL FROM ARGENTINA
  • 00:22:08.060 --> 00:22:11.130
  • TRYING TO CONVINCE THIS GUY TO CHANGE,
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:13.200
  • YOU'RE SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:15.180
  • - HE HAS JUST AN AMAZING PASSION AND A HEART FOR THE LOST.
  • 00:22:15.200 --> 00:22:20.120
  • IT WOULD BE GREAT IF MORE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:22:20.140 --> 00:22:21.270
  • HAD THAT SAME PASSION AND HEART.
  • 00:22:21.290 --> 00:22:23.280
  • IT PAINS HIM DEEPLY TO THINK ANYBODY MIGHT
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:27.090
  • NOT BE ABLE TO SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:22:27.110 --> 00:22:31.100
  • - HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:22:31.120 --> 00:22:33.150
  • DOES IT TAKE YEARS?
  • 00:22:33.170 --> 00:22:35.210
  • DOES IT TAKE MONTHS?
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:37.140
  • DOES IT TAKE DAYS?
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:39.090
  • DOES IT TAKE HOURS?
  • 00:22:39.110 --> 00:22:40.130
  • LISTEN, IT CAN HAPPEN IN AN INSTANT.
  • 00:22:40.150 --> 00:22:42.280
  • YOU CAN COME IN HERE AS A NON BELIEVER
  • 00:22:43.000 --> 00:22:45.070
  • AND CAN LEAVE HERE AS A BELIEVER.
  • 00:22:45.090 --> 00:22:47.190
  • YOU CAN COME IN HERE ON YOUR WAY TO HELL
  • 00:22:47.210 --> 00:22:49.270
  • AND LEAVE HERE ON YOUR WAY TO HEAVEN
  • 00:22:49.290 --> 00:22:51.280
  • IF YOU'LL BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST TONIGHT.
  • 00:22:52.000 --> 00:22:54.270
  • - WE ARE UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN
  • 00:22:54.290 --> 00:23:01.050
  • WHERE HIS POWER SHALL OVERFLOW
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:08.020
  • WHERE THE BROKEN SHALL BE MADE WHOLE
  • 00:23:08.040 --> 00:23:14.090
  • YEAH
  • 00:23:14.110 --> 00:23:15.130
  • WE ARE UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN
  • 00:23:15.150 --> 00:23:20.040
  • - WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:23:20.060 --> 00:23:21.190
  • IF THERE ARE GONNA BE ANY REGRETS AT ALL,
  • 00:23:21.210 --> 00:23:23.190
  • IT'LL BE WHEN WE SEE WHAT GOD HAD FOR US,
  • 00:23:23.210 --> 00:23:27.190
  • IF WE ONLY HAD THE BOLDNESS TO ASK FOR IT.
  • 00:23:27.210 --> 00:23:33.280
  • - WE ARE UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN
  • 00:23:34.000 --> 00:23:39.260
  • POUR ALL YOUR POWER ON US
  • 00:23:39.280 --> 00:23:43.210
  • OH, POUR IT ON
  • 00:23:43.230 --> 00:23:46.220
  • OH WE ARE UNDER AN OPEN
  • 00:23:46.240 --> 00:23:50.290
  • OH, POUR IT ON
  • 00:23:51.010 --> 00:23:53.140
  • RAIN ON YOUR PEOPLE
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:56.240
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS IN HEAVEN? NOW.
  • 00:23:56.260 --> 00:24:00.240
  • YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT'LL BE A MILLION YEARS FROM? NOW.
  • 00:24:00.260 --> 00:24:05.040
  • NOW UNTO HIM, WHO IS ABLE TO KEEP YOU FROM FALLING.
  • 00:24:05.060 --> 00:24:10.100
  • NOW,
  • 00:24:10.120 --> 00:24:12.190
  • IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS.
  • 00:24:12.210 --> 00:24:16.270
  • NOW.
  • 00:24:16.290 --> 00:24:20.090
  • - AND WE'RE DECLARING MIRACLES,
  • 00:24:20.110 --> 00:24:23.130
  • SIGNS AND WONDER.
  • 00:24:23.150 --> 00:24:25.150
  • DO I HAVE ANYBODY THAT BELIEVE IN MIRACLES IN HERE?
  • 00:24:25.170 --> 00:24:29.180
  • - YOUR MIRACLE IS ATTACHED TO A SET OF INSTRUCTIONS.
  • 00:24:29.200 --> 00:24:33.270
  • - [MAN] THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:24:33.290 --> 00:24:35.110
  • - AND THE REASON WHY WE DON'T EXPERIENCE THE MORE OF GOD
  • 00:24:35.130 --> 00:24:37.010
  • IS CAUSE WE'VE GOT QUESTIONS, WE WANNA UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:24:37.030 --> 00:24:40.230
  • AND GOD SAYS, YOU CAN UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:24:40.250 --> 00:24:43.240
  • I'VE GOT MORE FOR YOU AND SO IF YOU'RE HERE TONIGHT
  • 00:24:43.260 --> 00:24:46.250
  • AND YOU'RE WATCHING THIS, YOU'RE WATCHING THIS PROGRAM,
  • 00:24:46.270 --> 00:24:50.050
  • GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU, HE'S GOT THE MORE,
  • 00:24:50.070 --> 00:24:52.050
  • IF YOU JUST WALK IN, HE'LL BE THERE.
  • 00:24:52.070 --> 00:24:53.140
  • - I'M SO EXCITED TO CELEBRATE
  • 00:24:53.160 --> 00:24:56.150
  • THAT HE'S STILL A MIRACLE WORKER.
  • 00:24:56.170 --> 00:24:58.000
  • - YEAH, HE IS.
  • 00:24:58.020 --> 00:24:59.030
  • - HE'S STILL IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS.
  • 00:24:59.050 --> 00:25:01.060
  • - YEAH EXACTLY, YOU KNOW I WAS A SKEPTIC,
  • 00:25:01.080 --> 00:25:03.090
  • AN ATHEIST FOR MUCH OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:25:03.110 --> 00:25:04.290
  • CAME TO FAITH BECAUSE OF THE MIRACLE OF THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:25:05.010 --> 00:25:07.280
  • AND THE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE FOR THAT.
  • 00:25:08.000 --> 00:25:09.280
  • BUT, I'M STILL KIND OF, A SKEPTIC.
  • 00:25:10.000 --> 00:25:12.000
  • YOU KNOW, MY BACKGROUND'S IN JOURNALISM AND LAW,
  • 00:25:12.020 --> 00:25:13.270
  • SO I TEND TO BE THE SKEPTICAL KIND OF GUY.
  • 00:25:13.290 --> 00:25:15.230
  • AND I WANTED TO KNOW FOR SURE,
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:17.160
  • IS GOD STILL IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS.
  • 00:25:17.180 --> 00:25:19.240
  • AND SO, I SPENT TWO YEARS OF MY LIFE
  • 00:25:19.260 --> 00:25:21.290
  • INVESTIGATING THE SUPERNATURAL,
  • 00:25:22.010 --> 00:25:24.020
  • USING MY JOURNALISM BACKGROUND,
  • 00:25:24.040 --> 00:25:25.130
  • MY LEGAL BACKGROUND TO INVESTIGATE,
  • 00:25:25.150 --> 00:25:27.170
  • IS GOD STILL DOING MIRACLES TODAY
  • 00:25:27.190 --> 00:25:30.060
  • AND I FOUND THREE THINGS.
  • 00:25:30.080 --> 00:25:32.090
  • NUMBER ONE, GOD IS STILL IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS.
  • 00:25:32.110 --> 00:25:34.150
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:25:34.170 --> 00:25:35.220
  • - NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT AND NUMBER TWO,
  • 00:25:35.240 --> 00:25:39.170
  • MIRACLES ARE A LOT MORE COMMON THAN WE THINK.
  • 00:25:39.190 --> 00:25:42.080
  • AND NUMBER THREE,
  • 00:25:42.100 --> 00:25:43.160
  • A LOT OF MIRACLES ARE FAR BETTER DOCUMENTED
  • 00:25:43.180 --> 00:25:46.120
  • THAN SKEPTICS CHARGE.
  • 00:25:46.140 --> 00:25:48.160
  • - I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:25:48.180 --> 00:25:51.180
  • I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:25:51.200 --> 00:25:55.000
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES
  • 00:25:55.020 --> 00:26:01.160
  • I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:26:01.180 --> 00:26:04.220
  • I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:26:04.240 --> 00:26:08.020
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES
  • 00:26:08.040 --> 00:26:13.000
  • TONIGHT
  • 00:26:13.020 --> 00:26:15.070
  • - WE COME TO YOU NOW FATHER
  • 00:26:15.090 --> 00:26:17.030
  • AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN NEED OF A MIRACLE,
  • 00:26:17.050 --> 00:26:20.230
  • WHETHER THERE'S A PHYSICAL NEED, A SPIRITUAL NEED,
  • 00:26:20.250 --> 00:26:24.080
  • AN EMOTIONAL NEED, A FINANCIAL NEED, WHATEVER YOUR NEED IS,
  • 00:26:24.100 --> 00:26:29.130
  • IT IS MET TODAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:26:29.150 --> 00:26:33.220
  • ALL POWER HAS BEEN GIVEN TO HIM
  • 00:26:33.240 --> 00:26:36.070
  • AND ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE,
  • 00:26:36.090 --> 00:26:38.080
  • HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN PROVIDE
  • 00:26:38.100 --> 00:26:41.060
  • THE THINGS THAT ARE NEEDED IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:26:41.080 --> 00:26:43.210
  • AND ALL HE ASKS OF US IS TO TELL IT,
  • 00:26:43.230 --> 00:26:48.180
  • LET SOMEONE KNOW,
  • 00:26:48.200 --> 00:26:50.100
  • LET THEM HEAR THAT I AM THE ANSWER
  • 00:26:50.120 --> 00:26:54.150
  • TO WHATEVER THEIR NEEDS MIGHT BE.
  • 00:26:54.170 --> 00:26:57.120
  • I PRAISE YOU, FATHER, FOR YOU WORKING EVERY SINGLE MIRACLE,
  • 00:26:57.140 --> 00:27:02.140
  • EVERY NEED RIGHT NOW, IN JESUS' NAME
  • 00:27:02.160 --> 00:27:07.140
  • AND BY YOUR HOLY SPIRIT THESE THINGS ARE DONE.
  • 00:27:07.160 --> 00:27:11.090
  • AND WE THANK YOU THAT YOU LOVE US MORE THAN WE'LL EVER KNOW,
  • 00:27:11.110 --> 00:27:16.150
  • UNTIL WE'RE WITH YOU FOR ETERNITY.
  • 00:27:16.170 --> 00:27:19.260
  • IN JESUS' PRECIOUS NAME, AMEN.
  • 00:27:19.280 --> 00:27:23.110
  • - I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:27:23.130 --> 00:27:26.170
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES
  • 00:27:26.190 --> 00:27:31.160
  • TONIGHT
  • 00:27:31.180 --> 00:27:33.290
  • - WELL, I THINK YOUR LEGACY IS THE LIFE THAT YOU'VE LIVED.
  • 00:27:34.010 --> 00:27:39.230
  • IT CAN'T BE ONE PART OF IT, BUT THE LIFE THAT YOU'VE LIVED.
  • 00:27:39.250 --> 00:27:44.100
  • AND SECONDLY, WHAT DO YOU LEAVE BEHIND
  • 00:27:44.120 --> 00:27:48.160
  • THAT'S WORTH SOMEBODY PICKING UP AND CARRYING HOME?
  • 00:27:48.180 --> 00:27:52.280
  • WHAT DID YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO BELIEVE?
  • 00:27:53.000 --> 00:27:57.050
  • AND WHAT HAVE YOU ACCOMPLISHED? HOW DID YOU ACCOMPLISH IT?
  • 00:27:57.070 --> 00:28:00.220
  • WAS IT BY TRUSTING GOD AND BEING OBEDIENT TO HIM
  • 00:28:00.240 --> 00:28:04.080
  • OR WERE YOU CONSISTENT IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:28:04.100 --> 00:28:09.080
  • I THINK THE WHOLE LEGACY IS NOT
  • 00:28:09.100 --> 00:28:12.060
  • SOMETHING THAT YOU BUILD, PUT A NAME ON.
  • 00:28:12.080 --> 00:28:14.180
  • IT'S SOMETHING YOU LIVED
  • 00:28:14.200 --> 00:28:17.210
  • AND WHATEVER YOU WANT TO LEAVE ON THAT LEGACY,
  • 00:28:17.230 --> 00:28:21.100
  • YOU WANT IT TO BE LEFT IN PEOPLE'S HEARTS
  • 00:28:21.120 --> 00:28:23.230
  • AND IN THEIR MINDS.
  • 00:28:23.250 --> 00:28:26.030
  • - THE GOD WHO WAS RISEN ONE
  • 00:28:26.050 --> 00:28:32.190
  • THE POWER OF THE RISEN ONE
  • 00:28:32.210 --> 00:28:39.120
  • THE GOD WHO BRINGS THE DEAD TO LIFE
  • 00:28:39.140 --> 00:28:43.010
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES
  • 00:28:43.030 --> 00:28:46.130
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES
  • 00:28:46.150 --> 00:28:52.030
  • I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:28:52.050 --> 00:28:55.120
  • I BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:28:55.140 --> 00:28:58.220
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES

  • WE BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:29:31.200 --> 00:29:34.250
  • WE BELIEVE IN YOU
  • 00:29:34.270 --> 00:29:38.070
  • YOU'RE THE GOD OF MIRACLES
  • 00:29:38.090 --> 00:29:45.240
  • - JESUS ISN'T WAITING SOMEWHERE BEHIND A CURTAIN
  • 00:29:45.260 --> 00:29:49.240
  • AT A SPECIAL EVENT FOR OUR WORSHIP
  • 00:29:49.260 --> 00:29:52.190
  • TO REACH A CERTAIN DECIBEL BEFORE HE SHOWS UP.
  • 00:29:52.210 --> 00:29:56.060
  • AND SOMETIMES IN OUR EXUBERANCE, WE SAYS THINGS LIKE,
  • 00:29:56.080 --> 00:29:59.260
  • "OH, THE LORD'S PRESENCE IS HERE".
  • 00:29:59.280 --> 00:30:02.010
  • YES, HE CAME WITH YOU, HE CAME WITH ME
  • 00:30:02.030 --> 00:30:06.090
  • AND EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE MY SENSES ARE SMART ENOUGH
  • 00:30:06.110 --> 00:30:10.180
  • TO PICK UP ON THE REALITY OF JESUS' PROFOUND PRESENCE.
  • 00:30:10.200 --> 00:30:15.230
  • BUT MY SENSES DON'T CREATE HIS PRESENCE, DO THEY?
  • 00:30:15.250 --> 00:30:19.110
  • - [MATT CROUCH] RIGHT, NO.
  • 00:30:19.130 --> 00:30:20.210
  • - WHICH MEANS MY GREATEST SHOUT DOESN'T THICKEN HIM,
  • 00:30:20.230 --> 00:30:22.190
  • MY GREATEST DOUBT DOESN'T THIN HIM.
  • 00:30:22.210 --> 00:30:25.140
  • WHETHER I FEEL GREAT OR I FEEL NOTHING AT ALL,
  • 00:30:25.160 --> 00:30:28.040
  • JESUS IS STILL PROFOUNDLY PRESENT.
  • 00:30:28.060 --> 00:30:30.130
  • THAT WAS HIS PROMISE AND I WILL BE WITH YOU
  • 00:30:30.150 --> 00:30:33.220
  • ALWAYS TO THE VERY END.
  • 00:30:33.240 --> 00:30:35.290
  • - I JUST TALKED TO GOD, I DIDN'T WANNA TALK TO NOBODY.
  • 00:30:36.010 --> 00:30:38.180
  • I DIDN'T WANNA ASK NOBODY FOR HELP,
  • 00:30:38.200 --> 00:30:40.040
  • I WAS JUST MAD AND ANGRY AND PRIDEFUL
  • 00:30:40.060 --> 00:30:42.200
  • AND ALL THIS KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:30:42.220 --> 00:30:44.020
  • SO, I HAD TO DEPEND AND RELY ON GOD AND HE WAS ENOUGH.
  • 00:30:44.040 --> 00:30:46.240
  • AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD SUSTAINED ME
  • 00:30:46.260 --> 00:30:49.070
  • AND POWERED ME, STRENGTHENED ME, CHANGED MY MIND,
  • 00:30:49.090 --> 00:30:51.230
  • PROTECTED ME, COVERED ME.
  • 00:30:51.250 --> 00:30:53.090
  • JESUS WAS EVERYTHING, THE HOLY GHOST WAS EVERYTHING,
  • 00:30:53.110 --> 00:30:56.090
  • GOD WAS EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING.
  • 00:30:56.110 --> 00:31:00.250
  • - ALL THE WORLD STARTS CHANGING
  • 00:31:00.270 --> 00:31:03.130
  • WHEN THE CHURCH STARTS PRAYING
  • 00:31:03.150 --> 00:31:05.200
  • STRONGHOLDS START TO BREAK
  • 00:31:05.220 --> 00:31:08.100
  • OH, WHEN WE PRAY
  • 00:31:08.120 --> 00:31:11.020
  • PRISON WALLS START SHAKING
  • 00:31:11.040 --> 00:31:13.150
  • AT THE SOUND OF PRAISING
  • 00:31:13.170 --> 00:31:15.220
  • NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
  • 00:31:15.240 --> 00:31:18.130
  • OH, WHEN WE PRAY
  • 00:31:18.150 --> 00:31:22.020
  • - I WOKE UP ONE MORNING, I STEPPED OUT OF BED.
  • 00:31:22.040 --> 00:31:24.130
  • I WAS IN SO MUCH PHYSICAL PAIN,
  • 00:31:24.150 --> 00:31:26.090
  • I COULDN'T PROCESS WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME.
  • 00:31:26.110 --> 00:31:29.110
  • I COLLAPSED BESIDE MY BED,
  • 00:31:29.130 --> 00:31:31.030
  • MY FAMILY RUSHED ME TO THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:31:31.050 --> 00:31:33.270
  • AND I WAS IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN.
  • 00:31:33.290 --> 00:31:36.130
  • SO, THEY ADMITTED ME TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE OF THE PAIN
  • 00:31:36.150 --> 00:31:38.280
  • AND THEY STARTED RUNNING TESTS
  • 00:31:39.000 --> 00:31:40.110
  • AND THEY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME.
  • 00:31:40.130 --> 00:31:42.100
  • AND THEN, FRIDAY MORNING,
  • 00:31:42.120 --> 00:31:43.240
  • A SURGEON CAME IN TO THE ROOM AND HE SAID,
  • 00:31:43.260 --> 00:31:46.110
  • "LYSA, I RAN ONE LAST TEST
  • 00:31:46.130 --> 00:31:47.290
  • AND WE FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHAT'S HAPPENED.
  • 00:31:48.010 --> 00:31:50.060
  • THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR COLON
  • 00:31:50.080 --> 00:31:52.010
  • IS RIPPED AWAY FROM THE ABDOMINAL WALL,
  • 00:31:52.030 --> 00:31:54.140
  • IT IS WRAPPED AROUND THE LEFT SIDE
  • 00:31:54.160 --> 00:31:56.010
  • AND IT HAS CUT THE BLOOD FLOW OFF INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:31:56.030 --> 00:31:57.260
  • AND WE'VE GOT TO RUSH YOU INTO EMERGENCY SURGERY.
  • 00:31:57.280 --> 00:32:00.180
  • AND HE SAID, AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:32:00.200 --> 00:32:02.030
  • I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR GOD TO TAKE AWAY THAT PAIN,
  • 00:32:02.050 --> 00:32:04.260
  • BUT I THINK GOD DIDN'T ANSWER THAT PRAYER
  • 00:32:04.280 --> 00:32:07.210
  • BECAUSE HAD HE TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN,
  • 00:32:07.230 --> 00:32:09.220
  • WE WOULD HAVE SENT YOU HOME
  • 00:32:09.240 --> 00:32:11.180
  • AND YOUR COLON WOULD'VE RUPTURED AND YOU WOULD'VE DIED.
  • 00:32:11.200 --> 00:32:15.100
  • AND, I REMEMBER AS THEY WERE WHEELING ME BACK INTO SURGERY,
  • 00:32:15.120 --> 00:32:20.090
  • I WAS HAVING ALL KINDS
  • 00:32:20.110 --> 00:32:21.260
  • OF CHAOTIC THOUGHTS ABOUT MY SITUATION
  • 00:32:21.280 --> 00:32:24.090
  • BUT THE ONE THING THAT BROUGHT ME SO MUCH PEACE IS,
  • 00:32:24.110 --> 00:32:27.040
  • GOD WAS NOT A FAR REMOVED GOD IN MY PHYSICAL PAIN.
  • 00:32:27.060 --> 00:32:30.220
  • I BELIEVE IT PROBABLY TOOK EVERY BIT OF HOLY RESTRAIN
  • 00:32:30.240 --> 00:32:34.210
  • FOR GOD NOT TO ANSWER MY PRAYER.
  • 00:32:34.230 --> 00:32:37.140
  • BECAUSE HE LOVED ME THAT MUCH,
  • 00:32:37.160 --> 00:32:39.020
  • BECAUSE GOD LOVES US TOO MUCH TO ANSWER OUR PRAYERS
  • 00:32:39.040 --> 00:32:42.030
  • AT ANY OTHER TIME BUT THE RIGHT TIME.
  • 00:32:42.050 --> 00:32:44.180
  • - CAUSE WE BELIEVE,
  • 00:32:44.200 --> 00:32:45.290
  • COME ON IF YOU BELIEVE STAND UP ON YOUR FEET
  • 00:32:46.010 --> 00:32:49.020
  • ALL THE WORLD STARTS CHANGING
  • 00:32:49.040 --> 00:32:51.150
  • WHEN THE CHURCH STARTS PRAYING
  • 00:32:51.170 --> 00:32:53.250
  • STRONGHOLDS START TO BREAK
  • 00:32:53.270 --> 00:32:57.150
  • WHEN WE PRAY
  • 00:32:57.170 --> 00:32:59.030
  • - MY WIFE HAD RECEIVED IN THE MAIL A BOOK,
  • 00:32:59.050 --> 00:33:01.140
  • SOMEBODY HAD MAILED HER A BOOK.
  • 00:33:01.160 --> 00:33:03.020
  • CATCHY LITTLE TITLE CALLED, 'THEY SHALL EXPEL DEMONS'.
  • 00:33:03.040 --> 00:33:06.020
  • IT WAS DEREK PRINCE, WHO HAD WRITTEN THE BOOK.
  • 00:33:06.040 --> 00:33:08.030
  • MY WIFE STARTS READING, SHE LOVES TO READ,
  • 00:33:08.050 --> 00:33:10.160
  • SHE'S READING THIS BOOK, SHE GETS TO A POINT IN THE BOOK
  • 00:33:10.180 --> 00:33:13.020
  • WHEN DEREK PRINCE IS DESCRIBING HIS STRUGGLE
  • 00:33:13.040 --> 00:33:15.240
  • WITH DEPRESSION AND HEAVINESS.
  • 00:33:15.260 --> 00:33:17.250
  • AND SHE YELLS AT ME FROM THE OTHER ROOM, SHE GOES,
  • 00:33:17.270 --> 00:33:20.080
  • HEY BRIAN, COME HERE, I THINK YOU HAVE THIS.
  • 00:33:20.100 --> 00:33:24.170
  • I WAS LIKE, OH OKAY.
  • 00:33:24.190 --> 00:33:25.210
  • I DON'T THINK I SAID, OKAY, SWEETIE.
  • 00:33:25.230 --> 00:33:26.290
  • I THINK I SAID, OKAY REALLY, WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:33:27.010 --> 00:33:28.280
  • SO, SHE BEGAN TO READ AND THEN SHE READ
  • 00:33:29.000 --> 00:33:31.170
  • AND IT WAS HIM VOICING WHAT I WAS STRUGGLING WITH.
  • 00:33:31.190 --> 00:33:35.070
  • FOR MOST OF MY LIFE, AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER,
  • 00:33:35.090 --> 00:33:38.010
  • IT WAS THE BATTLE WITH HEAVINESS.
  • 00:33:38.030 --> 00:33:39.280
  • JUST FEELING MELANCHOLY AND HEAVY MOST OF THE TIME,
  • 00:33:40.000 --> 00:33:42.280
  • SOMETIMES NOT WANTING TO GET OUT OF BED.
  • 00:33:43.000 --> 00:33:45.070
  • AND SO I SAID, OKAY NOW THAT WE KNOW,
  • 00:33:45.090 --> 00:33:46.250
  • WE'VE ESTABLISHED I HAVE THIS, WHAT DO WE DO?
  • 00:33:46.270 --> 00:33:50.110
  • WHAT DOES HE SAY TO DO?
  • 00:33:50.130 --> 00:33:51.230
  • AND THAT'S JUST HOW SIMPLE WE WERE,
  • 00:33:51.250 --> 00:33:53.040
  • WE JUST HAD SIMPLE FAITH.
  • 00:33:53.060 --> 00:33:54.290
  • IF SOMEBODY, A FACE SAYS IT WORKS, WE'RE GONNA TRUST THAT
  • 00:33:55.010 --> 00:33:58.050
  • AND SHE READ WHAT HE SAID TO DO, IT WAS VERY SIMPLE.
  • 00:33:58.070 --> 00:34:02.130
  • REPENTED THE SIN, RECOGNIZE IT, RENOUNCE IT,
  • 00:34:02.150 --> 00:34:06.010
  • WHICH IS JUST A FANCY TERM OF SAYING I DON'T AGREE
  • 00:34:06.030 --> 00:34:08.020
  • WITH IT ANYMORE AND THEN RESIST.
  • 00:34:08.050 --> 00:34:10.130
  • AND SO I SAID, WELL PRAY FOR ME.
  • 00:34:10.150 --> 00:34:13.010
  • AND SHE LAID HER HAND ON ME,
  • 00:34:13.030 --> 00:34:14.090
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT LAYING ON A HAND,
  • 00:34:14.110 --> 00:34:15.260
  • SHE JUST LAID HER HAND ON ME AND PRAYED THE PRAYER
  • 00:34:15.280 --> 00:34:19.110
  • THAT WAS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:34:19.130 --> 00:34:21.040
  • AND AS SOON AS SHE PRAYED THAT, THE POWER GOD HIT ME
  • 00:34:21.060 --> 00:34:23.290
  • AND I FELT, WHAT FELT LIKE A COAT OF ARMOR.
  • 00:34:24.010 --> 00:34:26.250
  • WHICH IT PROBABLY WAS, THIS THING HAD PROBABLY
  • 00:34:26.270 --> 00:34:29.080
  • TRIED TO PROTECT ME, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:34:29.100 --> 00:34:30.290
  • PRESERVE ME FROM PAIN AND STUFF, IT CAME OFF.
  • 00:34:31.010 --> 00:34:34.150
  • I LITERALLY FELT THIS THING LIFT
  • 00:34:34.170 --> 00:34:37.020
  • AND WHEN I OPENED MY EYES, EVERYTHING WAS BRIGHT.
  • 00:34:37.040 --> 00:34:39.230
  • - PRAY
  • 00:34:39.250 --> 00:34:41.250
  • OH, YEAH WE PRAY
  • 00:34:41.270 --> 00:34:48.200
  • YEAH, WE PRAY
  • 00:34:48.220 --> 00:34:55.270
  • - YOU SAID YOU HAVE A PRAYER, I'M INTERESTED NOW.
  • 00:34:55.290 --> 00:34:58.090
  • WHAT GETS YOU THROUGH?
  • 00:34:58.110 --> 00:35:02.170
  • - WE WERE TALKING EARLIER ABOUT BEING LIKED, WANTING TO BE A
  • 00:35:02.190 --> 00:35:06.210
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN BECOME A SLAVE TO THAT.
  • 00:35:06.230 --> 00:35:10.150
  • BUT I ALWAYS, YOU KNOW, TALK TO YOUR PEOPLE OUT THERE,
  • 00:35:10.170 --> 00:35:15.080
  • DO YOU WANT TO BE LIKED BY MANY OR LOVED BY ONE?
  • 00:35:15.100 --> 00:35:19.070
  • AND I WANNA BE LOVED BY ONE,
  • 00:35:19.090 --> 00:35:22.150
  • I KNOW THAT LOVE DOESN'T COME FROM MAN,
  • 00:35:22.170 --> 00:35:25.140
  • IT ONLY COMES FROM GOD.
  • 00:35:25.160 --> 00:35:26.270
  • SO, I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE, SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD IT.
  • 00:35:26.290 --> 00:35:31.030
  • IT GOES, YOUR NAME MAY NOT APPEAR DOWN HERE.
  • 00:35:31.050 --> 00:35:38.240
  • SORRY.
  • 00:35:38.260 --> 00:35:41.160
  • YOUR NAME MAY NOT APPEAR DOWN HERE
  • 00:35:41.180 --> 00:35:43.050
  • IN THIS WORLD'S HALL OF FAME,
  • 00:35:43.070 --> 00:35:45.130
  • IN FACT, YOU MAY BE SO UNKNOWN THAT NO ONE KNOWS YOUR NAME.
  • 00:35:45.150 --> 00:35:50.130
  • THE OSCARS AND THE PRAISE OF MEN MAY NEVER COME YOUR WAY,
  • 00:35:50.150 --> 00:35:54.060
  • BUT DON'T FORGET GOD HAS REWARDS
  • 00:35:54.080 --> 00:35:55.240
  • THAT HE'LL HAND OUT SOMEDAY.
  • 00:35:55.260 --> 00:35:57.220
  • THIS CROWD ON EARTH, THEY WILL SOON FORGET
  • 00:35:57.240 --> 00:36:00.140
  • WHEN YOU'RE NOT AT THE TOP, THEY WILL CHEER LIKE MAD
  • 00:36:00.160 --> 00:36:03.160
  • UNTIL YOU FALL, THEN THEIR PRAISE WILL STOP.
  • 00:36:03.180 --> 00:36:05.150
  • NOT GOD, HE NEVER DOES FORGET AND IN HIS HALL OF FAME,
  • 00:36:05.170 --> 00:36:10.190
  • BY JUST BELIEVING ON HIS SON, FOREVER THERE'S YOUR NAME.
  • 00:36:10.210 --> 00:36:14.230
  • I TELL YOU FRIEND I WOULDN'T TRADE MY NAME, HOWEVER SMALL.
  • 00:36:14.250 --> 00:36:18.180
  • IT'S WRITTEN THERE BEYOND THE STARS AND THAT'S CELESTIAL.
  • 00:36:18.200 --> 00:36:22.090
  • FOR ALL THE FAMOUS NAMES ON EARTH
  • 00:36:22.110 --> 00:36:24.180
  • OR THE GLORY THAT THEY SHARE,
  • 00:36:24.200 --> 00:36:27.040
  • I'D RATHER BE AN UNKNOWN HERE AND HAVE MY NAME UP THERE.
  • 00:36:27.060 --> 00:36:31.010
  • (CROWD APPLAUD)
  • 00:36:31.030 --> 00:36:33.200
  • - IN DESPERATION
  • 00:36:33.220 --> 00:36:36.250
  • I TURNED TO HEAVEN
  • 00:36:36.270 --> 00:36:40.080
  • AND SPOKE YOUR NAME INTO THE NIGHT
  • 00:36:40.100 --> 00:36:46.210
  • THEN THROUGH THE DARKNESS
  • 00:36:46.230 --> 00:36:50.010
  • YOUR LOVING KINDNESS
  • 00:36:50.030 --> 00:36:53.210
  • TORE THROUGH THE SHADOWS OF MY SOUL
  • 00:36:53.230 --> 00:36:59.290
  • YOUR WORK IS FINISHED
  • 00:37:00.030 --> 00:37:03.170
  • THE END IS WRITTEN
  • 00:37:03.190 --> 00:37:07.030
  • JESUS CHRIST, MY LIVING HOPE
  • 00:37:07.050 --> 00:37:12.240
  • - YOU SAID YOU WERE TORMENTED AS A CHILD,
  • 00:37:12.260 --> 00:37:15.280
  • WHAT DID THAT MEAN? WHAT DID YOU MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:37:16.000 --> 00:37:18.010
  • - WELL, IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN
  • 00:37:18.030 --> 00:37:19.080
  • BUT I WOULD JUST GET INSTANTLY TERRORIZED,
  • 00:37:19.100 --> 00:37:23.100
  • YOU KNOW FEAR, JUST ON ANOTHER LEVEL.
  • 00:37:23.120 --> 00:37:25.260
  • NOT LIKE SCARED OF SOMETHING, BUT JUST LIKE,
  • 00:37:25.280 --> 00:37:27.240
  • MY HAIR ON THE BACK OF MY NECK, YEAH.
  • 00:37:27.260 --> 00:37:29.180
  • SO, WE STARTED FIGURING OUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:37:29.200 --> 00:37:31.070
  • THAT IT WAS JUST A DEMONIC THING,
  • 00:37:31.090 --> 00:37:33.040
  • I CAN HARDLY DESCRIBE IT,
  • 00:37:33.060 --> 00:37:34.280
  • IT JUST WAS KIND OF BEYOND WORDS.
  • 00:37:35.000 --> 00:37:36.190
  • AND THE ONLY THING THAT BROKE IT, WHICH IS AMAZING,
  • 00:37:36.210 --> 00:37:39.030
  • AS A SEVEN YEAR OLD I SLEPT WITH MY PARENTS
  • 00:37:39.050 --> 00:37:41.080
  • TILL I WAS 18 ALMOST EVERY NIGHT,
  • 00:37:41.100 --> 00:37:42.070
  • IN THE ROOM CAUSE I WAS TORMENTED.
  • 00:37:42.090 --> 00:37:44.170
  • THE ONLY THING THAT FIXED IT WAS WORSHIP,
  • 00:37:44.190 --> 00:37:47.150
  • NOT THE WORD, NOTHING, NOTHING
  • 00:37:47.170 --> 00:37:49.260
  • BUT JUST SINGING LIKE,
  • 00:37:49.280 --> 00:37:51.100
  • YOU KNOW THE OLD SONGS YOU COULD SING WITHOUT AN INSTRUMENT.
  • 00:37:51.120 --> 00:37:53.020
  • I LOVE YOU LORD AND LIFT MY VOICE.
  • 00:37:53.040 --> 00:37:54.260
  • SO, IN THOSE MOMENTS,
  • 00:37:54.280 --> 00:37:56.190
  • IT BECAME VERY APPARENT THE POWER OF PRAISE.
  • 00:37:56.210 --> 00:37:59.240
  • AND SO, WHEN YOU GO THROUGH SOMETHING LIKE THAT
  • 00:37:59.260 --> 00:38:03.120
  • AND YOU START TO LEAD WORSHIP, IT'S ALMOST LIKE,
  • 00:38:03.140 --> 00:38:05.150
  • YOU'RE LIKE, OH MAY THERE'S A REASON YOU KNOW FOR THAT,
  • 00:38:05.170 --> 00:38:09.270
  • NOT THAT GOD ALLOWED, OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:38:09.290 --> 00:38:12.090
  • BUT, I THINK WHEN YOU COME TO A PLACE OF WORSHIP OR PRAISE
  • 00:38:12.110 --> 00:38:16.230
  • IN THE CONTEXT, WITH THAT MEMORY IT MEANS MORE.
  • 00:38:16.250 --> 00:38:19.170
  • SING HALLELUJAH
  • 00:38:19.190 --> 00:38:22.170
  • PRAISE THE ONE WHO SET ME FREE
  • 00:38:22.190 --> 00:38:26.010
  • HALLELUJAH
  • 00:38:26.030 --> 00:38:29.080
  • DEATH HAS LOST ITS GRIP ON ME
  • 00:38:29.100 --> 00:38:32.190
  • YOU HAVE BROKEN EVERY CHAIN
  • 00:38:32.210 --> 00:38:36.000
  • THERE'S SALVATION IN YOUR NAME
  • 00:38:36.020 --> 00:38:39.090
  • JESUS CHRIST, MY LIVING HOPE
  • 00:38:39.110 --> 00:38:45.190
  • - HELP THOSE OF US WHO HAVE HAD A BAD DIAGNOSIS
  • 00:38:45.210 --> 00:38:48.250
  • TO JUST GET A GRIP AND START BELIEVING IN WHAT WE SAY
  • 00:38:48.270 --> 00:38:53.180
  • CAUSE I KNOW THAT WHAT WE SAY IN THOSE MOMENTS
  • 00:38:53.200 --> 00:38:56.160
  • HAS SUCH AN AMAZING EFFECT ON OUR BODIES,
  • 00:38:56.180 --> 00:38:59.210
  • ON OUR MINDS, ON OUR THINKING.
  • 00:38:59.230 --> 00:39:01.280
  • - RAPHA IS HEALING, BUT THE ETYMOLOGY,
  • 00:39:02.000 --> 00:39:04.080
  • THE ROOT OF RAPHA IS RAPHAH WITH A H,
  • 00:39:04.100 --> 00:39:08.120
  • WHICH IS RELAX, LET GO.
  • 00:39:08.140 --> 00:39:11.120
  • SO, THERE'S A VERSE THAT SAYS,
  • 00:39:11.140 --> 00:39:12.160
  • A RELAXED HEART IS LIFE TO THE FLESH.
  • 00:39:12.180 --> 00:39:16.060
  • SO MANY OF THE TIMES, WE TEACH CONFESSION OF FAITH,
  • 00:39:16.080 --> 00:39:18.080
  • YOU KNOW WE COME FROM THAT KIND OF BACKGROUND.
  • 00:39:18.100 --> 00:39:20.050
  • YOU KNOW, WE CONFESS,
  • 00:39:20.070 --> 00:39:21.140
  • WE STRICTLY CONFESS BY HIS STRIPES I WILL HEAL.
  • 00:39:21.160 --> 00:39:24.070
  • BUT, IF YOU DON'T TEACH PEOPLE TO LET GO OF THEIR STRESS,
  • 00:39:24.090 --> 00:39:27.000
  • WORRY AND ANXIETY, THEY CAN BE CONFESSING OUT OF FEAR,
  • 00:39:27.020 --> 00:39:30.230
  • CONFESSING OUT OF ANXIETY.
  • 00:39:30.250 --> 00:39:32.090
  • WE'VE SEEN PEOPLE WHO ARE DESPERATE
  • 00:39:32.110 --> 00:39:33.280
  • AND THEY WILL SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT THEM TO SAY, ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:39:34.000 --> 00:39:36.170
  • I THINK THE FIRST THING WE NEED TO SHARE WITH THEM
  • 00:39:36.190 --> 00:39:39.120
  • IS HOW TO LET GO OF THAT WORRY, THAT GOD CARES FOR YOU.
  • 00:39:39.140 --> 00:39:43.020
  • THE REASON WHY THAT'S CASTING ALL YOUR CARES
  • 00:39:43.040 --> 00:39:45.110
  • BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU.
  • 00:39:45.130 --> 00:39:48.070
  • - HALLELUJAH
  • 00:39:48.090 --> 00:39:51.040
  • PRAISE THE ONE WHO SET ME FREE
  • 00:39:51.060 --> 00:39:54.160
  • HALLELUJAH
  • 00:39:54.180 --> 00:39:57.260
  • DEATH HAS LOST ITS GRIP ON ME
  • 00:39:57.280 --> 00:40:01.080
  • YOU HAVE BROKEN EVERY CHAIN
  • 00:40:01.100 --> 00:40:04.180
  • THERE'S SALVATION IN YOUR NAME
  • 00:40:04.200 --> 00:40:07.290
  • JESUS CHRIST, MY LIVING HOPE
  • 00:40:08.010 --> 00:40:14.240
  • JESUS CHRIST, MY LIVING HOPE
  • 00:40:14.260 --> 00:40:19.100
  • - IT'S LIKE YOU'RE IN A COURT ROOM
  • 00:40:19.120 --> 00:40:21.210
  • AND GOD THE FATHER IS THE JUDGE
  • 00:40:21.230 --> 00:40:24.170
  • AND THE DEVIL IS THE PROSECUTING ATTORNEY
  • 00:40:24.190 --> 00:40:27.170
  • AND YOUR DEFENSE ATTORNEY IS JESUS.
  • 00:40:27.190 --> 00:40:30.230
  • SO, THE DEVIL GETS UP AND MAKES HIS CASE,
  • 00:40:30.250 --> 00:40:32.280
  • HE SAYS, ALL RIGHT, YOUR HONOR WE HAVE HERE GREG LAURIE.
  • 00:40:33.000 --> 00:40:37.040
  • YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE THINK HE'S A WONDERFUL GUY,
  • 00:40:37.060 --> 00:40:39.000
  • BUT I KNOW A FEW THINGS ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:40:39.020 --> 00:40:41.140
  • AND I'M GONNA TELL YOU EVERYTHING
  • 00:40:41.160 --> 00:40:42.250
  • THAT GREG HAS EVER DONE WRONG
  • 00:40:42.270 --> 00:40:44.130
  • AND HE STARTS READING OFF A LIST
  • 00:40:44.150 --> 00:40:46.220
  • AND HE'S READING ALL THESE CHARGES.
  • 00:40:46.240 --> 00:40:49.160
  • TWO MONTHS LATER, HE'S STILL READING AND READING.
  • 00:40:49.180 --> 00:40:53.080
  • I'M THINKING I'M SO DEAD, I'M NOT GETTING OUT OF HERE ALIVE.
  • 00:40:53.100 --> 00:40:57.010
  • AND I LOOK OVER AT MY DEFENSE ATTORNEY, JESUS,
  • 00:40:57.030 --> 00:41:00.020
  • HE'S JUST LIKE DOODLING ON THE TABLET, LIKE WHAT,
  • 00:41:00.040 --> 00:41:01.280
  • WHAT ARE YOU GONNA SAY?
  • 00:41:02.000 --> 00:41:04.060
  • WHAT ARE YOU GONNA SAY TO DEFEND ME?
  • 00:41:04.080 --> 00:41:05.130
  • HE DOESN'T SEEM WORRIED,
  • 00:41:05.150 --> 00:41:07.040
  • I'M THINKING I'M THE ONE ON TRIAL, WHY ISN'T HE HELPING ME?
  • 00:41:07.060 --> 00:41:10.090
  • HE DOESN'T OBJECT, HE JUST LISTENS.
  • 00:41:10.110 --> 00:41:12.250
  • FINALLY, THE DEVIL IS ALL DONE, HE SAYS,
  • 00:41:12.270 --> 00:41:14.170
  • SO THIS MAN,
  • 00:41:14.190 --> 00:41:15.280
  • GREG LAURIE HAS BROKEN YOUR COMMANDMENT, YOUR HONOR.
  • 00:41:16.000 --> 00:41:18.130
  • HE'S SINNED AGAINST YOU AND YOUR OWN WORD SAYS,
  • 00:41:18.150 --> 00:41:21.020
  • A SOUL THAT SINS SHALL SURELY DIE,
  • 00:41:21.040 --> 00:41:23.190
  • SO I THINK HE SHOULD BE CONDEMNED TO
  • 00:41:23.210 --> 00:41:26.260
  • AND HE SITS DOWN, SMUG LOOK ON HIS FACE.
  • 00:41:26.280 --> 00:41:30.250
  • I SAID, JESUS WHAT'RE GONNA DO?
  • 00:41:30.270 --> 00:41:32.090
  • HE SAYS, DON'T WORRY GREG.
  • 00:41:32.110 --> 00:41:34.150
  • HE SAYS, YOUR HONOR'S PERMISSION TO APPROACH THE BENCH?
  • 00:41:34.170 --> 00:41:38.120
  • THE JUDGE SAYS, PERMISSION GRANTED.
  • 00:41:38.140 --> 00:41:40.170
  • JESUS WALKS RIGHT UP TO THE FRONT,
  • 00:41:40.190 --> 00:41:42.110
  • LEANS IN AND SAYS TO THE JUDGE,
  • 00:41:42.130 --> 00:41:44.270
  • HEY DAD,
  • 00:41:44.290 --> 00:41:47.010
  • (CROWD LAUGH AND APPLAUD)
  • 00:41:47.030 --> 00:41:56.140
  • WE BOTH KNOW GREG IS GUILTY AS CHARGED,
  • 00:41:56.160 --> 00:42:00.140
  • BUT WE ALSO KNOW,
  • 00:42:00.160 --> 00:42:02.010
  • I ALREADY PAID THE PRICE FOR ALL OF HIS SINS
  • 00:42:02.030 --> 00:42:05.010
  • AND THE JUDGE SAYS, THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:42:05.030 --> 00:42:07.270
  • (CROWD APPLAUD)
  • 00:42:07.290 --> 00:42:09.230
  • AND HE POUNDS DOWN THAT GAVEL AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:42:09.250 --> 00:42:12.260
  • CASE DISMISSED, THIS MAN IS FORGIVEN.
  • 00:42:12.280 --> 00:42:15.250
  • ONLY JESUS CHRIST CAN DO THAT FOR YOU
  • 00:42:15.270 --> 00:42:18.240
  • AND FORGIVE YOU OF ALL OF YOUR SINS.
  • 00:42:18.260 --> 00:42:20.230
  • - THAT NIGHT I MET JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:42:20.250 --> 00:42:23.240
  • - [MATT CROUCH] WOW.
  • 00:42:23.260 --> 00:42:25.190
  • - YOU KNOW, HE MADE AN ALTAR CALL AND I WENT UP.
  • 00:42:25.210 --> 00:42:29.110
  • HE SAID, CAN I PRAY FOR YOU?
  • 00:42:29.130 --> 00:42:30.270
  • AND I WAS VULNERABLE, I MEAN HE COULD'VE SAID MICKY MOUSE
  • 00:42:30.290 --> 00:42:33.030
  • AND IT WOULD'VE BEEN FINE.
  • 00:42:33.050 --> 00:42:34.140
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS THAT OPEN, THAT TRANSPARENT.
  • 00:42:34.160 --> 00:42:37.060
  • I FELT LIKE SOMEONE PUT A BLOWTORCH IN MY CHEST,
  • 00:42:37.080 --> 00:42:39.270
  • BURNT A HOLE, I STARTED CRYING.
  • 00:42:39.290 --> 00:42:41.140
  • THAT'S SOMETHING I DIDN'T DO, ESPECIALLY IN PUBLIC.
  • 00:42:41.160 --> 00:42:44.040
  • I WEPT, MY SECRETARY WAS THERE WITH HER HUSBAND.
  • 00:42:44.060 --> 00:42:47.150
  • SO, AFTER THE SERVICE WE STARTED LEAVING
  • 00:42:47.170 --> 00:42:50.150
  • AND SHE SAID, DID YOU GET IT.
  • 00:42:50.170 --> 00:42:51.200
  • I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO GET,
  • 00:42:51.220 --> 00:42:53.180
  • I SAID, SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME
  • 00:42:53.200 --> 00:42:55.170
  • AND THEN I BEGAN THE JOURNEY OF UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:42:55.190 --> 00:42:58.180
  • THAT I WAS BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:42:58.200 --> 00:43:00.150
  • AND TEN DAYS LATER, I'M IN A PRAYER MEETING.
  • 00:43:00.170 --> 00:43:02.230
  • I READ A BOOK CALLED PRISON TO PRAISE BY MERLIN CAROTHERS
  • 00:43:02.250 --> 00:43:05.110
  • AND DISCOVERED THAT THE HIGHEST PRAISE
  • 00:43:05.130 --> 00:43:07.050
  • YOU CAN GIVE TO GOD IS HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:43:07.070 --> 00:43:08.110
  • I SAID, WELL I WANNA DO THAT. I DID IT
  • 00:43:08.130 --> 00:43:10.170
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I FELT THE POWER OF GOD
  • 00:43:10.190 --> 00:43:13.010
  • COME OVER ME PHYSICALLY,
  • 00:43:13.030 --> 00:43:14.240
  • I MEAN PHYSICALLY IN A TANGIBLE WAY.
  • 00:43:14.260 --> 00:43:17.040
  • IT FELT LIKE I WAS PLUGGED INTO AN ELECTRICAL SOCKET.
  • 00:43:17.060 --> 00:43:20.070
  • AND I WAS BROKEN, I MEAN BROKEN INSIDE
  • 00:43:20.090 --> 00:43:24.030
  • TO A PLACE OF HUMILITY THAT I NEVER EXPERIENCED.
  • 00:43:24.050 --> 00:43:27.140
  • - THE BIBLE SAYS, LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO.
  • 00:43:27.160 --> 00:43:31.040
  • SO, THE MOMENT YOU GET TOUCHED, THE MOMENT YOU GET SAVED,
  • 00:43:31.060 --> 00:43:34.290
  • YOU BECOME A CANDIDATE TO BE USED BY GOD.
  • 00:43:35.010 --> 00:43:37.140
  • DON'T LET SOMEBODY TELL YOU
  • 00:43:37.160 --> 00:43:39.220
  • THAT YOU'RE UNQUALIFIED OR YOU'RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:43:39.240 --> 00:43:42.220
  • - OH, SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH
  • 00:43:42.240 --> 00:43:47.250
  • BUT THAT'S WHEN LOVE SAYS YOU'RE MINE
  • 00:43:47.270 --> 00:43:53.000
  • I'VE CRIED MANY RIVERS
  • 00:43:53.020 --> 00:43:55.170
  • I'VE WALKED THROUGH SOME PAIN
  • 00:43:55.190 --> 00:43:58.010
  • I'VE SEEN MY WORLD CRUMBLE
  • 00:43:58.030 --> 00:44:00.190
  • AND I'VE CARRIED THE SHAME
  • 00:44:00.210 --> 00:44:03.120
  • BUT I KNOW SOMEBODY, HE CALLS ME HIS OWN
  • 00:44:03.140 --> 00:44:08.170
  • I CAN HEAR HEAVEN SINGING OUT
  • 00:44:08.190 --> 00:44:11.120
  • OH-OH-OH, YOU'RE NEVER ALONE
  • 00:44:11.140 --> 00:44:16.220
  • OH-OH-OH
  • 00:44:16.240 --> 00:44:17.290
  • - [SADIE ROBERTSON] MY MOM DOES NOT HAVE
  • 00:44:18.010 --> 00:44:19.000
  • LIKE A OUNCE OF FEAR IN HER BODY.
  • 00:44:19.020 --> 00:44:21.030
  • LIKE, SHE IS THE MOST, JUST LIKE CHILL,
  • 00:44:21.050 --> 00:44:23.040
  • - [INTERVIEWER] SHE'S A VERY CALM PERSON.
  • 00:44:23.060 --> 00:44:24.180
  • - IT'S ALL GONNA WORK OUT, YOU KNOW THAT KIND OF PERSON.
  • 00:44:24.200 --> 00:44:26.210
  • LOVE YOU, MOM. THAT'S NOT THE WAY I TURNED OUT.
  • 00:44:26.230 --> 00:44:29.040
  • BUT MY MOM IS LIKE, SO KIND AND SO CONSISTENT WITH ME
  • 00:44:29.060 --> 00:44:34.060
  • AND SHE NEVER MADE ME FEEL CRAZY.
  • 00:44:34.080 --> 00:44:36.070
  • EVEN THOUGH I UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:44:36.090 --> 00:44:37.190
  • THAT IF YOU'RE NOT IN IT AND YOU CAN'T SEE IT,
  • 00:44:37.210 --> 00:44:40.020
  • IT WOULD BE EASY TO SAY LIKE,
  • 00:44:40.040 --> 00:44:41.180
  • WHAT, THERE'S NOTHING HAPPENING, YOU'RE FINE.
  • 00:44:41.200 --> 00:44:44.120
  • SHE NEVER MADE ME FEEL CRAZY,
  • 00:44:44.140 --> 00:44:45.270
  • BUT SHE ALSO DIDN'T JUSTIFY IT, WHERE I WAS AT.
  • 00:44:45.290 --> 00:44:48.240
  • SHE WOULD HELP PULL ME OUT,
  • 00:44:48.260 --> 00:44:50.140
  • BUT I ALWAYS REMEMBER MY MOM MADE THIS THING
  • 00:44:50.160 --> 00:44:51.290
  • AND SHE'S LIKE, ANYTIME YOU FEEL IT, CALL ME IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:44:52.010 --> 00:44:55.280
  • AND ANYTIME I WOULD THE PANIC START CAUSE IT WAS LIKE,
  • 00:44:56.000 --> 00:44:59.000
  • FOR ME I WOULD START SHAKING UP,
  • 00:44:59.020 --> 00:45:00.290
  • I THOUGHT MY THROAT WAS CLOSING UP,
  • 00:45:01.010 --> 00:45:02.120
  • I LIKE, WANTED HER TO TAKE ME TO THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:45:02.140 --> 00:45:04.150
  • CAUSE IT JUST FELT SO REAL, IT'S LIKE A PHYSICAL TAKEOVER.
  • 00:45:04.170 --> 00:45:07.180
  • AND EVERY TIME THAT I WASN'T WITH HER, I'D CALL HER.
  • 00:45:07.200 --> 00:45:09.200
  • AND EVERY SINGLE TIME SHE'S START AND SHE'S GO,
  • 00:45:09.220 --> 00:45:11.280
  • DO NO FEAR FOR I AM WITH YOU,
  • 00:45:12.000 --> 00:45:13.290
  • DO NOT BE DISMAYED FOR I AM YOUR GOD, I WILL STRENGTHEN YOU,
  • 00:45:14.010 --> 00:45:17.020
  • I WILL UPHOLD YOU ON MY RIGHTEOUS RIGHT HAND.
  • 00:45:17.040 --> 00:45:19.210
  • AND SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LEARN ALL THE VERSES ON FEAR
  • 00:45:19.230 --> 00:45:23.140
  • BECAUSE SHE KNEW, WHEN YOU'RE IN IT, LIKE HE SAID,
  • 00:45:23.160 --> 00:45:26.080
  • YOU CAN BE BLIND, YOU CANNOT REALLY HEAR THINGS AROUND YOU,
  • 00:45:26.100 --> 00:45:29.120
  • YOU DON'T KNOW THE WORDS TO SAY
  • 00:45:29.140 --> 00:45:30.240
  • AND SHE WOULD JUST SAY IT CLEAR OVER ME TIME AND TIME.
  • 00:45:30.260 --> 00:45:33.100
  • AND I MEAN, I'M NOT KIDDING, THREE YEARS OF PANIC CALLS
  • 00:45:33.120 --> 00:45:37.030
  • AND SHE ANSWERED EVERY TIME AND IT'S THE SAME RESPONSE.
  • 00:45:37.050 --> 00:45:39.250
  • AND LIKE, IT'S AMAZING. IT WAS AMAZING NOW TO LOOK BACK
  • 00:45:39.270 --> 00:45:44.050
  • AND SEE HOW SHE WAS IN THAT SITUATION.
  • 00:45:44.070 --> 00:45:47.130
  • - YOU'RE NEVER ALONE
  • 00:45:47.150 --> 00:45:51.020
  • I KNOW SOMEBODY
  • 00:45:51.040 --> 00:45:53.250
  • I KNOW SOMEBODY
  • 00:45:53.270 --> 00:45:56.030
  • HE'S NAME IS JESUS
  • 00:45:56.050 --> 00:46:01.210
  • (CROWD APPLAUD)
  • 00:46:01.230 --> 00:46:04.290
  • - MOST DAYS ARE ORDINARY, WE GO TO WORK,
  • 00:46:05.010 --> 00:46:08.140
  • WE TAKE THE KIDS TO SCHOOL, WE WASH DISHES,
  • 00:46:08.160 --> 00:46:11.250
  • WE HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS, WE SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY.
  • 00:46:11.270 --> 00:46:14.290
  • THEN OUT OF NOWHERE, WE COME FACE TO FACE WITH A LION,
  • 00:46:15.010 --> 00:46:19.160
  • AN OPPORTUNITY OR A DREAM THAT SEEMS SO BIG, SO SCARY
  • 00:46:19.180 --> 00:46:24.010
  • THAT OUR FIRST REACTION IS TO RUN THE OTHER DIRECTION.
  • 00:46:24.030 --> 00:46:28.040
  • AFTER ALL, WE WERE JUST MINDING OUR OWN BUSINESS,
  • 00:46:28.060 --> 00:46:31.130
  • GOING ABOUT LIFE AS USUAL.
  • 00:46:31.150 --> 00:46:33.280
  • IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER JUST TO IGNORE THE ROAR,
  • 00:46:34.000 --> 00:46:37.230
  • PRETEND IT NEVER HAPPENED,
  • 00:46:37.250 --> 00:46:39.170
  • BUT THESE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT DEFINE OUR LIVES.
  • 00:46:39.190 --> 00:46:43.090
  • IT'S FIGHT OR FLIGHT AND WE HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE.
  • 00:46:43.110 --> 00:46:46.180
  • WE CAN RUN AWAY FROM OUR DREAMS,
  • 00:46:46.200 --> 00:46:48.250
  • GO BACK TO LIFE AS WE KNOW IT AND LIVE WITH THE REGRET
  • 00:46:48.270 --> 00:46:53.150
  • OR WE CAN GRAB OPPORTUNITY BY THE MANE,
  • 00:46:53.170 --> 00:46:56.280
  • GO AFTER THOSE GOD SIZED DREAMS AND LIVE OUR LIVES
  • 00:46:57.000 --> 00:47:00.150
  • IN A WAY THAT'S WORTH TELLING STORIES ABOUT.
  • 00:47:00.170 --> 00:47:03.280
  • - EVERY ROAD THAT WE TRAVEL TOGETHER
  • 00:47:04.000 --> 00:47:08.060
  • IT'S BEEN WORTH IT ALL, IT'S BEEN WORTH IT ALL
  • 00:47:08.080 --> 00:47:13.240
  • FROM CITY TO CITY AND TOWN TO TOWN
  • 00:47:13.260 --> 00:47:18.210
  • WE'RE BEST WITH FAMILY ALL AROUND
  • 00:47:18.230 --> 00:47:22.290
  • WE'RE GONNA HIT THE ROAD AGAIN
  • 00:47:23.010 --> 00:47:25.100
  • SHARE SOME SONGS AND MAKE SOME FRIENDS
  • 00:47:25.120 --> 00:47:27.180
  • GONNA LIFT OUR HANDS TO THE GREAT AGAIN
  • 00:47:27.200 --> 00:47:29.240
  • IT'S BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY
  • 00:47:29.260 --> 00:47:32.100
  • WE MIGHT WORSHIP ALL NIGHT LONG
  • 00:47:32.120 --> 00:47:34.180
  • HOPING YOU WILL SING ALONG
  • 00:47:34.200 --> 00:47:36.250
  • CAUSE EVERYBODY'S FAMILY
  • 00:47:36.270 --> 00:47:38.290
  • LIKE MOMMA USE TO SAY
  • 00:47:39.010 --> 00:47:40.260
  • LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:47:40.280 --> 00:47:45.180
  • LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:47:45.200 --> 00:47:47.210
  • - HE SAID, NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU IS GONNA PROSPER.
  • 00:47:47.230 --> 00:47:50.170
  • I KNOW THE ENEMY THINKS HE'S HAVING A LAUGH AND HE'S HAVING,
  • 00:47:50.190 --> 00:47:55.070
  • JUST SAYING, IT'S BEEN SO LONG, NOTHING'S GONNA CHANGE.
  • 00:47:55.090 --> 00:48:00.020
  • BUT I COME WITH THE WORD OF THE LORD,
  • 00:48:00.040 --> 00:48:03.070
  • I'VE COME TO TELL YOU THAT FIRST CORINTHIANS 13 SAID,
  • 00:48:03.090 --> 00:48:06.120
  • LOVE NEVER FAILS, IT MIGHT TAKE A WEEK,
  • 00:48:06.140 --> 00:48:09.270
  • IT MIGHT TAKE A MONTH, IT MIGHT TAKE A YEAR,
  • 00:48:09.290 --> 00:48:12.130
  • IT MIGHT TAKE A LIFETIME,
  • 00:48:12.150 --> 00:48:14.270
  • BUT LOVE WILL NEVER FAIL BEFORE IT'S OVER.
  • 00:48:14.290 --> 00:48:18.260
  • LOVE WILL WIN, IF YOU STAY IN LOVE, LOVE WILL WIN.
  • 00:48:18.280 --> 00:48:23.140
  • IT WILL HEAL, IT WILL RESTORE.
  • 00:48:23.160 --> 00:48:26.090
  • - LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:48:26.110 --> 00:48:31.000
  • LOVE PEOPLE, PEOPLE
  • 00:48:31.020 --> 00:48:33.150
  • LIKE MOMMA USED TO SAY
  • 00:48:33.170 --> 00:48:35.110
  • - WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:48:35.130 --> 00:48:37.070
  • I ACTUALLY WANTED HER TO BE A NUN BUT SHE'S LIKE INTO GUYS.
  • 00:48:37.090 --> 00:48:40.050
  • SO I SAID, WHEN THE GUYS ASK YOU TO THE PROM,
  • 00:48:40.070 --> 00:48:45.120
  • ASK THEM WHAT YOUR DEFINITION OF LOVE IS
  • 00:48:45.140 --> 00:48:47.170
  • AND IF THEY COME BACK AND SAY, IT'S LIKE BUTTERFLIES,
  • 00:48:47.190 --> 00:48:50.220
  • I MEAN YOU CAN GET THAT FROM BAD PIZZA.
  • 00:48:50.240 --> 00:48:52.230
  • LOVE IS SACRIFICE AND COMMITMENT AND IF WE GET THAT RIGHT,
  • 00:48:52.250 --> 00:48:56.270
  • THAT IT INVOLVES SACRIFICE AND COMMITMENT.
  • 00:48:56.290 --> 00:48:58.280
  • WHEN SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE DIFFICULT
  • 00:48:59.000 --> 00:49:01.000
  • ARE IN YOUR LAST RADIUS,
  • 00:49:01.020 --> 00:49:03.060
  • TO JUST UNDERSTAND THAT LOVING PEOPLE
  • 00:49:03.080 --> 00:49:06.050
  • ISN'T LIKE A HALLMARK MOMENT,
  • 00:49:06.070 --> 00:49:09.110
  • IT'S GONNA INVOLVE SOME SACRIFICE AND COMMITMENT.
  • 00:49:09.130 --> 00:49:11.070
  • THE KIND OF INCONVENIENCE THAT SENT JESUS TO DIE,
  • 00:49:11.090 --> 00:49:15.190
  • THAT'S LIKE ACTUALLY REALLY INCONVENIENT SACRIFICIAL LOVE.
  • 00:49:15.210 --> 00:49:19.010
  • - LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:49:19.030 --> 00:49:21.060
  • COME ON, LET ME HEAR YOU SING
  • 00:49:21.080 --> 00:49:23.270
  • LOVE PEOPLE, WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO TONIGHT
  • 00:49:23.290 --> 00:49:28.200
  • LOVE PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD THAT HAVE GOT NO PEOPLE
  • 00:49:28.220 --> 00:49:33.090
  • LOVE PEOPLE, PEOPLE
  • 00:49:33.110 --> 00:49:35.230
  • LIKE MOMMA USED TO SAY
  • 00:49:35.250 --> 00:49:37.240
  • HEY, I CAN HEAR MY MOMMA SAYING
  • 00:49:37.260 --> 00:49:43.160
  • GO ON, LOVE EVERYBODY
  • 00:49:43.180 --> 00:49:47.060
  • - YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT MY HUSBAND DID?
  • 00:49:47.080 --> 00:49:48.210
  • WE CHASED GOD AND HE CHASED US
  • 00:49:48.230 --> 00:49:51.070
  • AND NOW WE ARE CHASING AFTER HIM
  • 00:49:51.090 --> 00:49:53.240
  • AND HELPING EVERYBODY ELSE TO DO IT.
  • 00:49:53.260 --> 00:49:55.050
  • SO, I FALL BACK IN LOVE WITH GOD
  • 00:49:55.070 --> 00:49:57.010
  • AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO FALL BACK IN LOVE WITH GOD,
  • 00:49:57.030 --> 00:49:59.050
  • MY HUSBAND SAID, I PUT MYSELF ON A RECEIVING PLAN.
  • 00:49:59.070 --> 00:50:01.150
  • HE SAID, I FIGURED I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOVE MY WIFE RIGHT
  • 00:50:01.170 --> 00:50:04.000
  • BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT I'VE TRIED,
  • 00:50:04.020 --> 00:50:05.170
  • I FAILED AND I MADE ALL THESE MISTAKES,
  • 00:50:05.190 --> 00:50:07.000
  • SO I'M GONNA LEARN HOW TO LOVE
  • 00:50:07.020 --> 00:50:08.140
  • BY THE GREATEST LOVER THERE EVER WAS.
  • 00:50:08.160 --> 00:50:10.010
  • HERE I AM JESUS, LOVE ON ME.
  • 00:50:10.030 --> 00:50:11.240
  • AND HE WOULD JUST SIT UP WITH THE BIBLE,
  • 00:50:11.260 --> 00:50:14.060
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND SAY,
  • 00:50:14.080 --> 00:50:15.130
  • I'M HERE TO RECEIVE YOUR LOVE.
  • 00:50:15.150 --> 00:50:17.120
  • AND HE SAID, IF YOU SHOW ME HOW TO LOVE,
  • 00:50:17.140 --> 00:50:19.280
  • IF I CAN RECEIVE YOUR LOVE I CAN GIVE HER BETTER LOVE.
  • 00:50:20.000 --> 00:50:23.010
  • AND THE LOVE.
  • 00:50:23.030 --> 00:50:24.020
  • (CROWD APPLAUD)
  • 00:50:24.040 --> 00:50:26.010
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:50:26.030 --> 00:50:29.040
  • - [INTERVIEWER] THAT'S A GOOD WORD.
  • 00:50:29.060 --> 00:50:30.110
  • - [INTERVIEWEE] IS IT THAT, IS THAT SOMETHING?
  • 00:50:30.130 --> 00:50:31.110
  • - THAT IS A REAL GOOD WORD.
  • 00:50:31.130 --> 00:50:33.030
  • - LISTEN, THE LOVE THAT I EXPERIENCED
  • 00:50:33.050 --> 00:50:34.200
  • FROM MY HUSBAND IS MIND BLOWING,
  • 00:50:34.220 --> 00:50:37.080
  • I EXPERIENCED THE LOVE OF GOD THROUGH MY HUSBAND.
  • 00:50:37.100 --> 00:50:40.270
  • AND FROM MY HUSBAND IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:50:40.290 --> 00:50:43.140
  • AND IT'S SO WONDERFUL AND I WAS SO HOPELESS FIVE YEARS AGO,
  • 00:50:43.160 --> 00:50:47.230
  • I NEVER THOUGHT THAT THIS COULD BE MY LIFE.
  • 00:50:47.250 --> 00:50:51.020
  • - PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW
  • 00:50:51.040 --> 00:50:59.020
  • PRAISE HIM
  • 00:50:59.040 --> 00:51:00.250
  • ALL CREATURES HERE BELOW
  • 00:51:00.270 --> 00:51:07.060
  • PRAISE HIM UP ABOVE
  • 00:51:07.080 --> 00:51:10.080
  • OUR HEAVENLY HOST
  • 00:51:10.100 --> 00:51:15.120
  • PRAISE FATHER, SON
  • 00:51:15.140 --> 00:51:18.190
  • AND HOLY GHOST

  • HALLELUJAH
  • 00:51:33.040 --> 00:51:37.240
  • HALLELUJAH
  • 00:51:37.260 --> 00:51:43.280
  • - YOU MIGHT BE JUST LIKE I WAS,
  • 00:51:44.000 --> 00:51:45.270
  • HAVE NO GRID FOR CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:51:45.290 --> 00:51:47.210
  • OR MAYBE YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A GRID
  • 00:51:47.230 --> 00:51:49.260
  • BUT YOU HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT HOW TO CONNECT WITH GOD.
  • 00:51:49.280 --> 00:51:53.270
  • AND IT'S THROUGH JESUS, IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE.
  • 00:51:53.290 --> 00:51:55.210
  • THAT NIGHT, I HEARD THE SIMPLE TRUTH.
  • 00:51:55.230 --> 00:51:57.090
  • JESUS CHRIST WAS SENT TO NOT JUST FORGIVE ME,
  • 00:51:57.110 --> 00:52:01.000
  • NOT JUST TAKE AWAY MY SINS BUT CONNECT ME WITH THE FATHER.
  • 00:52:01.020 --> 00:52:04.120
  • AND I JUST WANNA TELL YOU TONIGHT, THE GOAL OF THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:52:04.140 --> 00:52:06.260
  • THE GOAL OF THIS WHOLE THING IS THE FATHER.
  • 00:52:06.280 --> 00:52:09.100
  • IT'S THE FATHER, IT'S A RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:52:09.120 --> 00:52:11.180
  • SO, IT CAN BE AS SIMPLE AS MY PRAYER WAS THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:52:11.200 --> 00:52:15.010
  • AND WHY DON'T WE JUST DO THAT?
  • 00:52:15.030 --> 00:52:16.170
  • MAYBE YOU'RE WATCHING RIGHT NOW AND YOU FEEL DISCONNECTED,
  • 00:52:16.190 --> 00:52:19.110
  • ABSENT, SEPARATED FROM GOD.
  • 00:52:19.130 --> 00:52:21.260
  • RIGHT NOW, JUST IN YOUR LIVING ROOM, WHEREVER YOU'RE AT.
  • 00:52:21.280 --> 00:52:24.080
  • CRY IT OUT, JUST LIKE I DID.
  • 00:52:24.100 --> 00:52:25.190
  • LET'S JUST PRAY THAT TOGETHER,
  • 00:52:25.210 --> 00:52:27.050
  • LORD YOU BETTER MAKE THIS SO REAL NOW THAT I DON'T GO BACK.
  • 00:52:27.070 --> 00:52:31.030
  • REACH OUT FOR HIM, HE'S CERTAINLY BEEN
  • 00:52:31.050 --> 00:52:34.160
  • THE BIBLE ACTUALLY SAYS,
  • 00:52:34.180 --> 00:52:35.240
  • IF YOU CALL UPON HIS NAME, YOU CAN BE SAVED.
  • 00:52:35.260 --> 00:52:38.150
  • CALL UP ON THE NAME OF JESUS RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:52:38.170 --> 00:52:40.140
  • YOU CAN BE SAVED RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:52:40.160 --> 00:52:42.020

  • GREAT OR SMALL
  • 00:53:03.130 --> 00:53:07.100
  • PRAISE HIM WHO HEARS OUR FAINTEST CALL
  • 00:53:07.120 --> 00:53:13.160
  • - YOU KNOW, TO COME TO SALVATION,
  • 00:53:13.180 --> 00:53:15.050
  • TO COME TO JESUS IS SO EASY.
  • 00:53:15.070 --> 00:53:17.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, IN ROMANS 10,
  • 00:53:17.170 --> 00:53:19.120
  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH
  • 00:53:19.140 --> 00:53:22.270
  • WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:53:22.290 --> 00:53:24.050
  • IF YOU'RE ALREADY BELIEVE IN IT,
  • 00:53:24.070 --> 00:53:25.090
  • JUST GO ON, I DO BELIEVE IN THIS JESUS.
  • 00:53:25.110 --> 00:53:28.090
  • YOU CAN JUST SAY THAT OUT LOUD, I BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 00:53:28.110 --> 00:53:30.240
  • AND IT'S THAT EASY, YOU'RE SAVED.
  • 00:53:30.260 --> 00:53:32.210
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:53:32.230 --> 00:53:34.060
  • ALL THOSE WHO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD, THEY ARE SAVED.
  • 00:53:34.080 --> 00:53:37.010
  • IT'S AS SIMPLE AS SAYING THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:53:37.030 --> 00:53:39.250
  • AND YOU'RE SAVED RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:53:39.270 --> 00:53:41.160
  • - THERE'S A BREAKING, THERE'S A BREAKING
  • 00:53:41.180 --> 00:53:47.160
  • IN MY FAVOR, OH GOD
  • 00:53:47.180 --> 00:53:54.000
  • THERE'S A SHIFTING
  • 00:53:54.020 --> 00:53:57.210
  • IN MY DIRECTION
  • 00:53:57.230 --> 00:54:00.120
  • IN MY DIRECTION
  • 00:54:00.140 --> 00:54:07.030
  • THERE'S BREAKING IN MY FAVOR
  • 00:54:07.050 --> 00:54:13.190
  • AS I PRAY
  • 00:54:13.210 --> 00:54:17.180

  • NOTHING IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:54:26.080 --> 00:54:27.190
  • EVEN THE HARD PARTS AREN'T HIDDEN FROM HIM
  • 00:54:27.210 --> 00:54:30.070
  • AND YOU'RE ALL HE LOVES WHAT HE SEES.
  • 00:54:30.090 --> 00:54:32.240
  • HE LOVES YOU AND HE IS EVEN TONIGHT REVEALING HIMSELF
  • 00:54:32.260 --> 00:54:37.260
  • TO YOU SAYING, COME, COME.
  • 00:54:37.280 --> 00:54:41.030
  • YOU'RE NEVER AN INTERRUPTION TO HIM,
  • 00:54:41.050 --> 00:54:43.050
  • YOU ARE HIS BELOVED SON, HIS BELOVED DAUGHTER.
  • 00:54:43.070 --> 00:54:47.060
  • SO, WOULD YOU HONOR US ENOUGH TO PRAY WITH US RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:54:47.080 --> 00:54:51.160
  • EVEN IF YOU'VE NEVER PRAYED BEFORE.
  • 00:54:51.180 --> 00:54:53.090
  • YOU MAY BE IN A HOTEL ROOM SOMEWHERE THINKING,
  • 00:54:53.110 --> 00:54:55.130
  • WHO IS THIS LOUD SOUTHERN WOMAN
  • 00:54:55.150 --> 00:54:57.210
  • ON TELEVISION WITH THE NICE BLONDE?
  • 00:54:57.230 --> 00:55:00.290
  • AND YOU'VE NEVER CLOSED YOUR EYES TO PRAY,
  • 00:55:01.010 --> 00:55:02.140
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO CLOSE YOUR EYES.
  • 00:55:02.160 --> 00:55:03.220
  • DOESN'T HAVE TO SOUND LIKE A KING JAMES PRAYER.
  • 00:55:03.240 --> 00:55:06.040
  • YOU COULD JUST SAY, IF YOU ARE REAL,
  • 00:55:06.060 --> 00:55:09.140
  • GOD, WOULD YOU SHOW YOURSELF TO ME?
  • 00:55:09.160 --> 00:55:12.020
  • WOULD YOU GIVE ME EYES TO SEE?
  • 00:55:12.040 --> 00:55:15.170
  • WOULD YOU HEAL THE PLACES IN MY HEART THAT I HAVE WALLED UP
  • 00:55:15.190 --> 00:55:19.200
  • BECAUSE I JUST CAN'T TAKE GETTING HURT AGAIN?
  • 00:55:19.220 --> 00:55:23.090
  • FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO ARE LEANING IN RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:55:23.110 --> 00:55:25.220
  • JUST THINKING, COULD I, I WISH HE'S QUIT CRYING
  • 00:55:25.240 --> 00:55:29.200
  • BECAUSE IT REMINDS ME OF MY OWN WOUNDS.
  • 00:55:29.220 --> 00:55:32.270
  • OH LORD JESUS, I PRAY YOU'D BE SO THICK THROUGH YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:55:32.290 --> 00:55:36.160
  • IN THAT LIVING ROOM, IN THAT HOTEL ROOM,
  • 00:55:36.180 --> 00:55:38.220
  • THAT THEY COULD NOT SEE YOU.
  • 00:55:38.240 --> 00:55:41.230
  • THAT JUST LIKE THOSE WOMEN IN HAITI
  • 00:55:41.250 --> 00:55:43.200
  • HAD TO PROFESS THAT MY BABY IS A MIRACLE.
  • 00:55:43.220 --> 00:55:47.200
  • THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO SEE WITH SPIRIT EYES.
  • 00:55:47.220 --> 00:55:50.250
  • I SENSED SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:55:50.270 --> 00:55:52.270
  • LORD I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD TAKE THE SCALES FROM THEIR EYES
  • 00:55:52.290 --> 00:55:56.040
  • AND THE WALLS FROM THEIR HEARTS
  • 00:55:56.060 --> 00:55:57.200
  • AND THE SCALES FROM THEIR EARS
  • 00:55:57.220 --> 00:55:59.170
  • AND THEY WOULD HEAR YOU, THEY WOULD SEE YOU IN THIS MOMENT
  • 00:55:59.190 --> 00:56:04.030
  • AND THEY WOULD COME, THEY WOULD LEAN INTO YOUR PRESENCE
  • 00:56:04.050 --> 00:56:08.180
  • AND ALLOW YOU TO HOLD THEM.
  • 00:56:08.200 --> 00:56:10.190

  • 00:56:10.210 --> 00:56:14.010

  • THANK YOU THAT YOU PROMISE TO SET THE LONELY IN FAMILIES,
  • 00:56:19.260 --> 00:56:25.210
  • INTO YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:56:25.230 --> 00:56:26.290
  • THANK YOU, THAT THROUGH YOUR SPIRIT YOU SAY,
  • 00:56:27.010 --> 00:56:29.120
  • YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CALL ME FATHER.
  • 00:56:29.140 --> 00:56:31.170
  • YOU'VE GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF SONSHIP, A SPIRIT OF ADOPTION.
  • 00:56:31.190 --> 00:56:35.130
  • SO LORD JESUS,
  • 00:56:35.150 --> 00:56:36.270
  • FOR THOSE WHO PRIOR TO THIS PROGRAM FELT LIKE ORPHANS.
  • 00:56:36.290 --> 00:56:40.270
  • I PRAY THAT EVEN IN THIS MOMENT AS THEY LEAN INTO JESUS,
  • 00:56:40.290 --> 00:56:44.140
  • THEY WOULD BEGIN TO RECOGNIZE THEY ARE NOT ALONE,
  • 00:56:44.160 --> 00:56:46.290
  • THAT YOU ARE THEIR FATHER.
  • 00:56:47.010 --> 00:56:49.200
  • WE ASK THIS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS,
  • 00:56:49.220 --> 00:56:52.160
  • BY THE BLOOD HE SHED ON OUR BEHALF ON CALVARY
