  • - Luke 22.
  • 00:00:15.110 --> 00:00:16.040
  • And very quickly, I'll begin
  • 00:00:16.040 --> 00:00:17.110
  • reading with verse 31.
  • 00:00:17.110 --> 00:00:19.240
  • "And the Lord said,
  • 00:00:19.240 --> 00:00:20.260
  • 'Simon, Simon!
  • 00:00:20.260 --> 00:00:22.060
  • Indeed, Satan has asked for you,
  • 00:00:22.060 --> 00:00:24.160
  • that he may sift you as wheat.
  • 00:00:24.180 --> 00:00:27.180
  • But I have prayed for you,
  • 00:00:27.180 --> 00:00:29.120
  • that your faith should not fail.
  • 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:32.040
  • And when you have
  • 00:00:32.040 --> 00:00:32.190
  • returned to me,
  • 00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:34.030
  • strengthen your brethren.'"
  • 00:00:34.030 --> 00:00:36.230
  • I want to talk to you
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:37.250
  • for just a few moments
  • 00:00:37.250 --> 00:00:39.130
  • about something that happened
  • 00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:41.020
  • in our nation
  • 00:00:41.020 --> 00:00:42.040
  • that goes right along with
  • 00:00:42.040 --> 00:00:43.260
  • what we've been talking about.
  • 00:00:43.260 --> 00:00:45.090
  • It was 9-11.
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:48.040
  • 9-11-2001, a date that
  • 00:00:48.260 --> 00:00:51.260
  • we will all remember.
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.270
  • When 2.996 Americans
  • 00:00:54.060 --> 00:00:57.060
  • lost their lives
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:00:58.040
  • in the twin towers
  • 00:00:58.040 --> 00:00:59.060
  • from a terrorist attack.
  • 00:00:59.060 --> 00:01:01.140
  • 6.000 were injured.
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:03.190
  • And then the wars
  • 00:01:03.190 --> 00:01:04.200
  • that followed in Afghanistan
  • 00:01:04.200 --> 00:01:06.090
  • and Iraq, another 6.800.
  • 00:01:06.200 --> 00:01:09.200
  • All could be traced back
  • 00:01:09.200 --> 00:01:11.220
  • to one man
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:13.090
  • and his diabolical plan.
  • 00:01:13.090 --> 00:01:15.120
  • He was in his 50's.
  • 00:01:15.120 --> 00:01:16.230
  • He was the son of a billionaire.
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:19.050
  • And he hated the Western world,
  • 00:01:19.050 --> 00:01:21.000
  • and he hated Christianity.
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:23.180
  • And the FBI and the CIA
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:26.250
  • put on him a certain label.
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:29.190
  • It's called,
  • 00:01:29.190 --> 00:01:30.200
  • in their world, HVT.
  • 00:01:31.240 --> 00:01:34.240
  • That is high value target.
  • 00:01:34.270 --> 00:01:37.270
  • Osama bin Laden became an HVT --
  • 00:01:39.010 --> 00:01:42.010
  • a high value target.
  • 00:01:43.040 --> 00:01:46.040
  • He made the FBI
  • 00:01:46.040 --> 00:01:47.160
  • and CIA most wanted list.
  • 00:01:47.170 --> 00:01:50.170
  • For 13 years,
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:52.060
  • they diligently sought him.
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:54.130
  • He went into hiding.
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:55.220
  • He was isolated and secluded.
  • 00:01:56.070 --> 00:01:59.070
  • He refused to use a cell phone.
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:01.130
  • He would never go
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:02.090
  • on the Internet.
  • 00:02:02.090 --> 00:02:03.180
  • He was there and would not even,
  • 00:02:03.180 --> 00:02:06.050
  • in his hiding place,
  • 00:02:06.050 --> 00:02:07.200
  • allow his garbage
  • 00:02:07.200 --> 00:02:08.280
  • to be collected.
  • 00:02:08.280 --> 00:02:10.060
  • But he had a certain way
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:11.210
  • of doing away with it.
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:13.020
  • He wanted no traces
  • 00:02:13.020 --> 00:02:14.140
  • of his existence.
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:17.070
  • After some time,
  • 00:02:17.070 --> 00:02:19.100
  • the U.S. government put out
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:21.130
  • a $25 million reward
  • 00:02:21.130 --> 00:02:23.180
  • on Osama bin Laden.
  • 00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:25.060
  • And then the airline association
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:27.150
  • offered another $2 million.
  • 00:02:27.150 --> 00:02:29.180
  • That's a total of $27 million
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:32.210
  • reward for anyone
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:33.290
  • who could give information
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:35.230
  • leading to
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:36.150
  • this terrorist leader.
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:38.180
  • You may think you have friends,
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:40.120
  • but if they put
  • 00:02:40.120 --> 00:02:42.000
  • a $27 million reward
  • 00:02:42.000 --> 00:02:44.130
  • out on you,
  • 00:02:44.130 --> 00:02:45.080
  • your friendship circle is going
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:47.130
  • to get very, very small,
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:49.060
  • very, very quick.
  • 00:02:49.060 --> 00:02:51.220
  • They knew that Al-Qaeda,
  • 00:02:51.220 --> 00:02:53.260
  • the terrorist organization,
  • 00:02:54.000 --> 00:02:57.000
  • operated and communicated
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:59.280
  • through carriers.
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:02.030
  • And there in the area
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:04.170
  • of Pakistan, there was
  • 00:03:04.170 --> 00:03:06.010
  • one common denominator person
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:08.150
  • who kept coming up.
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:09.280
  • For years -- 13 years --
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:12.100
  • the FBI, the CIA,
  • 00:03:12.100 --> 00:03:14.020
  • thousands of agents --
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:15.160
  • and I got this from an article.
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:17.020
  • And informants -- they were
  • 00:03:17.020 --> 00:03:18.160
  • searching and researching,
  • 00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:20.060
  • trying to find this one man.
  • 00:03:20.060 --> 00:03:22.120
  • This high value target.
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:24.120
  • And I'm preaching on
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:25.270
  • "You Are a High Value Target."
  • 00:03:25.270 --> 00:03:28.190
  • Now listen carefully.
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:31.040
  • They had secret agents
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:33.090
  • and CIA people
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:34.190
  • who disguised themselves
  • 00:03:34.190 --> 00:03:36.030
  • as part of Al-Qaeda.
  • 00:03:36.030 --> 00:03:37.240
  • Twenty-four hours a day --
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.070
  • thousands of men and women
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:41.290
  • worked 24 hours a day
  • 00:03:41.290 --> 00:03:43.260
  • for 13 years to find one man.
  • 00:03:44.280 --> 00:03:47.280
  • One name kept cropping up.
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:49.290
  • One name kept coming.
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.210
  • He was a carrier in Pakistan,
  • 00:03:51.230 --> 00:03:54.230
  • and hundreds of agents
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:56.150
  • were deployed secretly
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:58.090
  • to watch this man.
  • 00:03:58.090 --> 00:03:59.290
  • To follow this man.
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:01.120
  • To check everything that he did.
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:04.280
  • Every movement
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:05.250
  • that he made was tracked.
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.240
  • Finally, by 2010,
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:10.020
  • they found and located him.
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:12.270
  • And after 24-hour surveillance
  • 00:04:12.270 --> 00:04:15.000
  • a day, he made a vital mistake.
  • 00:04:15.140 --> 00:04:18.140
  • He used his cell phone,
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:20.230
  • which he was not supposed to do.
  • 00:04:20.230 --> 00:04:22.260
  • And when he did -- he called,
  • 00:04:22.260 --> 00:04:25.000
  • and they were able to trace
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:26.170
  • that one phone call
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:28.170
  • to a place in Pakistan.
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:31.240
  • He had been carrying
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.000
  • that cell phone along,
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.270
  • and he had gotten relaxed
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.060
  • in the place that he was in.
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:38.210
  • He thought that
  • 00:04:38.210 --> 00:04:39.110
  • he could get by with it.
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:40.190
  • He let his guard down.
  • 00:04:40.190 --> 00:04:41.270
  • And one time on his iPhone
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:46.050
  • was the only reason that
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:47.240
  • we were able to get
  • 00:04:47.240 --> 00:04:48.230
  • Osama bin Laden.
  • 00:04:48.230 --> 00:04:51.030
  • You better watch out about
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:51.290
  • that little iPhone
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:53.130
  • and what you're doing with it.
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:55.140
  • I'll keep moving,
  • 00:04:55.140 --> 00:04:56.090
  • but give me a big amen.
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:05:00.120
  • They began to study
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:01.150
  • this carrier's patterns.
  • 00:05:01.150 --> 00:05:03.280
  • The mistakes that he made.
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:05.260
  • And they traced him
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:06.260
  • to a compound in Pakistan.
  • 00:05:06.260 --> 00:05:09.230
  • And there,
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:10.100
  • with heat-seeking cameras,
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:12.000
  • they began to notice
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:14.030
  • a tall man -- a slim, tall man
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:17.000
  • at the compound at night.
  • 00:05:17.000 --> 00:05:18.220
  • Would come out only at night
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:21.030
  • to walk around
  • 00:05:21.030 --> 00:05:21.290
  • and stretch his legs.
  • 00:05:21.290 --> 00:05:23.030
  • And they thought it strange.
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:24.080
  • Why does he just come out --
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:25.210
  • never in the daylight.
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:26.250
  • Only at night.
  • 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:30.120
  • And then they pinpointed
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:32.050
  • his bedroom on the third floor
  • 00:05:32.050 --> 00:05:34.090
  • of that compound.
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:35.080
  • They knew which bed he was in.
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:37.000
  • They knew that he had
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:37.230
  • some security officers
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:39.120
  • that were -- through
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:40.130
  • the heat-seeking cameras --
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:41.250
  • that had weapons,
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:43.090
  • so they knew this was someone
  • 00:05:43.090 --> 00:05:44.190
  • that was unusual.
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:46.020
  • They watched and studied
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:47.120
  • when the security was most lax.
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:50.250
  • Watching him.
  • 00:05:50.250 --> 00:05:52.190
  • Do you know that
  • 00:05:52.190 --> 00:05:53.180
  • you have an enemy --
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:54.160
  • according to the story
  • 00:05:54.160 --> 00:05:55.190
  • that I read -- when Jesus
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:56.270
  • turned to Simon Peter,
  • 00:05:56.270 --> 00:05:58.120
  • and he said,
  • 00:05:58.120 --> 00:05:59.220
  • Satan has desired to have you?
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:02.180
  • You are a high value target.
  • 00:06:03.180 --> 00:06:06.180
  • You are someone
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.060
  • the enemy is after.
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:10.280
  • Every day, he wants you.
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:12.230
  • He's looking
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:13.160
  • for your weak point.
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:14.220
  • He wants to destroy your family.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.250
  • He wants to destroy
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:17.280
  • your marriage.
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:18.260
  • He wants to destroy
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:20.010
  • your purpose.
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:20.270
  • He wants to destroy your call.
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:24.260
  • And when they located this man,
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:27.010
  • and they were convinced
  • 00:06:27.010 --> 00:06:27.270
  • that he was the terrorist
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.140
  • that they knew he was,
  • 00:06:29.140 --> 00:06:30.230
  • they sent four helicopters.
  • 00:06:30.230 --> 00:06:33.030
  • Navy SEAL Team 6.
  • 00:06:33.030 --> 00:06:35.220
  • Elite warriors.
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:36.270
  • The best, the smartest,
  • 00:06:36.270 --> 00:06:38.040
  • the most dangerous.
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:40.110
  • They sent them in after
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:41.220
  • this high value target.
  • 00:06:42.060 --> 00:06:45.060
  • Simon, Satan has
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:46.140
  • desired to have you.
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:48.150
  • You are a high value target.
  • 00:06:49.020 --> 00:06:52.020
  • You're not just any disciple,
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:53.200
  • but you have been given
  • 00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:54.240
  • the keys to the kingdom.
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:56.240
  • And I'm preaching today
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:58.010
  • to some high value targets.
  • 00:06:58.010 --> 00:07:00.090
  • You need to be careful, Simon,
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:02.150
  • what you allow into your life
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:05.180
  • because Satan has labeled you
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:07.220
  • a high value target.
  • 00:07:07.220 --> 00:07:10.090
  • Peter, you've got a revelation
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:12.050
  • of who Jesus is.
  • 00:07:12.050 --> 00:07:13.260
  • And there are people
  • 00:07:13.260 --> 00:07:15.140
  • in this room today,
  • 00:07:15.140 --> 00:07:16.190
  • and people listening to me
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:17.210
  • by television
  • 00:07:17.210 --> 00:07:18.130
  • and on the Internet who --
  • 00:07:18.130 --> 00:07:20.000
  • you need to understand
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:22.040
  • that the more you know
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:23.240
  • about God, and the longer
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:25.100
  • you walk with God,
  • 00:07:25.100 --> 00:07:26.100
  • and the more Bible
  • 00:07:26.100 --> 00:07:27.120
  • and revelation you understand,
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:29.080
  • the more you become an HVT --
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:31.100
  • a high value target of hell.
  • 00:07:31.100 --> 00:07:33.250
  • You make
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:34.170
  • hell's most wanted list.
  • 00:07:34.190 --> 00:07:37.190
  • The enemy loves HVT's --
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:40.110
  • high value targets.
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:42.000
  • He loves pastors' kids,
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:44.040
  • and second and third
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:45.050
  • and fourth generation
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:46.120
  • Christian families.
  • 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:48.050
  • He loves to get in
  • 00:07:48.050 --> 00:07:48.270
  • those families,
  • 00:07:48.270 --> 00:07:49.200
  • by about the third
  • 00:07:49.200 --> 00:07:50.220
  • or fourth generation,
  • 00:07:50.220 --> 00:07:52.080
  • and take out
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:52.260
  • a high value target,
  • 00:07:52.260 --> 00:07:54.170
  • and begin to change the blessing
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:56.120
  • on that family into a curse.
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:58.150
  • Into something
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:07:59.210
  • that brings pain and hurt.
  • 00:07:59.220 --> 00:08:02.240
  • I want you to understand,
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:04.020
  • if you know the Word,
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:05.080
  • you can't relax.
  • 00:08:05.080 --> 00:08:06.210
  • If you've been in church
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:07.170
  • a long time, you can't relax.
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:09.110
  • That actually makes you a HVT --
  • 00:08:09.240 --> 00:08:12.240
  • a high value target.
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:14.260
  • Young people, teenagers,
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:16.190
  • college students,
  • 00:08:16.190 --> 00:08:18.010
  • I warn you today with all that
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:20.110
  • I can tell you
  • 00:08:20.110 --> 00:08:21.130
  • that you are a high value target
  • 00:08:21.260 --> 00:08:24.260
  • to the enemy.
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:25.280
  • You know how to pray.
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.150
  • You know how to fast.
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:29.050
  • You know the truth.
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:30.260
  • You know the name of Jesus
  • 00:08:30.260 --> 00:08:32.190
  • and the power of salvation.
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:34.100
  • And you are wanted by hell.
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:37.010
  • Hell is sending
  • 00:08:37.010 --> 00:08:38.150
  • his best forces after you.
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:40.030
  • His elite Navy SEAL Team
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:42.130
  • is coming after you.
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:44.000
  • I don't normally like
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:44.280
  • to talk negative like this,
  • 00:08:44.280 --> 00:08:46.120
  • but the truth is, we wrestle
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:48.100
  • not against flesh and blood,
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:50.040
  • but against principalities
  • 00:08:50.040 --> 00:08:51.220
  • and powers.
  • 00:08:51.220 --> 00:08:52.150
  • And the enemy is
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:53.270
  • sending in his best
  • 00:08:53.270 --> 00:08:56.090
  • after high value targets.
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:09:00.020
  • Hell is sending them
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:01.050
  • to sift you, Jesus said.
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:03.240
  • The word sift means to separate.
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:06.200
  • When you sift wheat,
  • 00:09:06.200 --> 00:09:07.080
  • you shake it until
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:09.010
  • the sifting is done
  • 00:09:09.010 --> 00:09:10.270
  • and there's a separation.
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:12.170
  • And the sifting the enemy wants
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:13.290
  • to do to high value targets
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:16.250
  • is to separate you from special,
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:19.030
  • spiritual friends.
  • 00:09:19.030 --> 00:09:21.020
  • From worshipping friends.
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:22.210
  • From a mom and dad
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:23.180
  • that love God and love you.
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:25.280
  • From pastors
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:26.200
  • and spiritual voices.
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:28.040
  • To pull you away from
  • 00:09:28.040 --> 00:09:29.060
  • the right people
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:30.150
  • and get you connected
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:31.220
  • to the wrong people.
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:33.030
  • To separate you from
  • 00:09:33.030 --> 00:09:34.060
  • those who make you strong.
  • 00:09:34.060 --> 00:09:36.210
  • Hell is trying to sift you.
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:38.170
  • To pull you away.
  • 00:09:38.170 --> 00:09:40.030
  • He doesn't care
  • 00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:40.260
  • how much it costs.
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:42.030
  • They didn't care
  • 00:09:42.030 --> 00:09:42.270
  • that it would cost $27 million
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:45.270
  • to find one terrorist.
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:46.290
  • And the enemy doesn't care
  • 00:09:46.290 --> 00:09:48.050
  • what it costs him to get you
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:50.060
  • out of your purpose,
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.090
  • out of your calling,
  • 00:09:51.090 --> 00:09:52.110
  • out of your destiny.
  • 00:09:52.110 --> 00:09:53.190
  • He'll do whatever
  • 00:09:53.190 --> 00:09:54.230
  • he has to do.
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:55.250
  • You are a high value target.
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:59.210
  • And Jesus warned Peter.
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:01.140
  • He said there's all kinds
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:03.150
  • of bait that the enemy may use
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:05.130
  • against you because
  • 00:10:05.130 --> 00:10:06.040
  • you're wanted by hell.
  • 00:10:06.040 --> 00:10:07.290
  • You are a HVT.
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:11.170
  • You are the one hell
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:14.010
  • has that is most wanted.
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:16.220
  • The devil wants you so bad
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:19.070
  • if you're an usher.
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:20.220
  • If you are a soul winner.
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:23.000
  • If you are a singer.
  • 00:10:23.000 --> 00:10:25.020
  • If you're a prayer intercessor.
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:26.270
  • If you're a young person
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:28.000
  • living for Christ,
  • 00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:29.090
  • and you've got character
  • 00:10:29.090 --> 00:10:30.130
  • and integrity,
  • 00:10:30.130 --> 00:10:31.050
  • you are a high value target.
  • 00:10:31.050 --> 00:10:34.000
  • If you're standing strong
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:35.160
  • in morality, and standing strong
  • 00:10:35.160 --> 00:10:38.010
  • in keeping yourself pure,
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:40.040
  • the enemy says
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:41.080
  • that's a high value target.
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:43.120
  • If we can take them down,
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:44.270
  • and their name down,
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:45.270
  • and their character down,
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:47.050
  • it will have a domino effect
  • 00:10:47.050 --> 00:10:48.130
  • on many others
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:49.180
  • that they have influence with.
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:52.270
  • A high value target.
  • 00:10:52.270 --> 00:10:54.240
  • Hell is reaching for you.
  • 00:10:54.240 --> 00:10:56.170
  • Heaven is reaching for you.
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:58.080
  • And if he can stop you,
  • 00:10:58.120 --> 00:11:01.140
  • he'll do everything
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:02.130
  • he can to take you out.
  • 00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:05.000
  • I saw a documentary
  • 00:11:05.000 --> 00:11:05.280
  • not too long ago on snake --
  • 00:11:05.280 --> 00:11:08.200
  • professional snake handlers
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:11.010
  • that milk snakes.
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:12.110
  • Now I don't know how you make it
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:14.140
  • if you're not a professional
  • 00:11:14.140 --> 00:11:15.220
  • snake handler.
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:16.240
  • But this guy's label was
  • 00:11:16.240 --> 00:11:18.280
  • a professional snake handler.
  • 00:11:18.280 --> 00:11:20.170
  • And apparently there
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:21.270
  • are amateur snake handlers
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:23.270
  • that he trains,
  • 00:11:23.270 --> 00:11:25.060
  • and this is what this show was
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:26.130
  • on National Geographic about.
  • 00:11:26.130 --> 00:11:28.110
  • Can you imagine being
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:29.130
  • an amateur snake handler
  • 00:11:29.130 --> 00:11:31.040
  • and having to milk
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:32.030
  • a rattlesnake?
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:33.040
  • I don't know that I would ever
  • 00:11:33.040 --> 00:11:34.060
  • want to go in that field.
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:36.080
  • But this was what was
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:37.170
  • interesting out of everything
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:38.240
  • that he said.
  • 00:11:38.240 --> 00:11:39.180
  • He said most of the --
  • 00:11:39.180 --> 00:11:41.120
  • he teaches the young trainee
  • 00:11:41.120 --> 00:11:43.110
  • snake handlers that most
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:45.150
  • of the snake bites happen
  • 00:11:45.150 --> 00:11:47.060
  • when you go to put
  • 00:11:47.060 --> 00:11:48.110
  • the snake down,
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:49.250
  • not when you pick it up.
  • 00:11:49.250 --> 00:11:51.100
  • And I set there and thought
  • 00:11:51.100 --> 00:11:52.040
  • Lord, I will preach that.
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:11:54.090
  • That you better be careful
  • 00:11:54.090 --> 00:11:56.040
  • what you pick up.
  • 00:11:56.040 --> 00:11:57.170
  • Because it's easy
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:11:58.070
  • to pick up drugs, and it's easy
  • 00:11:58.070 --> 00:12:00.090
  • to pick up immorality,
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:01.140
  • and pick up pornography,
  • 00:12:01.140 --> 00:12:02.180
  • and pick up adultery.
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:04.150
  • It's easy to pick it up,
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:05.210
  • but it's not as easy
  • 00:12:05.210 --> 00:12:06.240
  • to put it down.
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:07.250
  • Because when you put it down,
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:09.030
  • it can strike you.
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:11.190
  • And we need to be careful
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:12.240
  • because we're
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:13.180
  • high value targets.
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:15.120
  • He's studying you.
  • 00:12:15.120 --> 00:12:17.010
  • Your enemy
  • 00:12:17.010 --> 00:12:17.220
  • is studying your habits.
  • 00:12:17.220 --> 00:12:19.090
  • He wants to pull you
  • 00:12:19.090 --> 00:12:20.170
  • out of the safety zone.
  • 00:12:20.170 --> 00:12:22.000
  • The safety zone of God's house.
  • 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:24.040
  • The safety zone
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:25.010
  • of the Word of God.
  • 00:12:25.010 --> 00:12:26.130
  • The safety zone of good counsel
  • 00:12:26.130 --> 00:12:28.160
  • from moms, and dads,
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:29.290
  • and spiritual people
  • 00:12:29.290 --> 00:12:31.000
  • who love you.
  • 00:12:31.000 --> 00:12:32.190
  • The devil is
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:33.100
  • studying every preacher.
  • 00:12:33.100 --> 00:12:34.150
  • Every dad.
  • 00:12:34.150 --> 00:12:35.130
  • Every mom.
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:36.210
  • Every preacher's kid.
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:38.030
  • Every one of us.
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:39.100
  • He knows you better
  • 00:12:39.100 --> 00:12:40.120
  • than you know yourself.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:41.240
  • He knows your life.
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:43.030
  • He studies your movement.
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:44.240
  • He studies your instincts,
  • 00:12:44.240 --> 00:12:46.090
  • your associations,
  • 00:12:46.090 --> 00:12:47.140
  • your friendships.
  • 00:12:47.140 --> 00:12:48.230
  • The music that you listen to.
  • 00:12:48.230 --> 00:12:51.070
  • The movies that you watch.
  • 00:12:51.070 --> 00:12:52.190
  • The things that you --
  • 00:12:52.190 --> 00:12:53.210
  • the websites.
  • 00:12:53.210 --> 00:12:54.260
  • The things on your iPhone.
  • 00:12:54.260 --> 00:12:56.180
  • He watches this.
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:57.280
  • I marvel at the patience
  • 00:12:57.280 --> 00:12:59.140
  • of hell.
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:00.070
  • How the enemy will wait,
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:01.210
  • and bait you, and bait you,
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:03.180
  • and bait you until he finally
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.170
  • lures you out
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:06.200
  • of that safety zone.
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:09.100
  • He watches your desires
  • 00:13:09.100 --> 00:13:11.050
  • and your patterns.
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:12.150
  • The Bible said in Acts 19
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:14.090
  • that Paul was a chosen vessel.
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:16.150
  • And the reason the enemy
  • 00:13:16.150 --> 00:13:17.290
  • has declared that you are
  • 00:13:17.290 --> 00:13:19.230
  • his high value target
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:21.230
  • is you too, are a chosen vessel.
  • 00:13:21.230 --> 00:13:24.230
  • I really believe that.
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:26.000
  • I believe that preachers
  • 00:13:26.000 --> 00:13:27.160
  • are an HVT.
  • 00:13:27.160 --> 00:13:29.030
  • I believe that preachers,
  • 00:13:29.030 --> 00:13:30.200
  • according to Matthew 26:31 --
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:33.150
  • smite the shepherd,
  • 00:13:33.150 --> 00:13:34.280
  • and the sheep will scatter,
  • 00:13:34.280 --> 00:13:36.050
  • and the wolf can devour them.
  • 00:13:36.050 --> 00:13:37.280
  • If ever -- we ought to hold up
  • 00:13:37.280 --> 00:13:39.280
  • our pastors, and their wives,
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:41.140
  • and our church teams
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:42.270
  • at every campus,
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:43.260
  • and pray for them.
  • 00:13:43.260 --> 00:13:45.060
  • Pray for their marriages.
  • 00:13:45.060 --> 00:13:46.100
  • Pray for their children.
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:47.230
  • Pray for their families.
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.030
  • Why?
  • 00:13:49.030 --> 00:13:49.230
  • Because they are
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:51.000
  • wanted in hell.
  • 00:13:51.000 --> 00:13:52.230
  • They are high value targets.
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:55.050
  • And the enemy would love
  • 00:13:55.050 --> 00:13:56.150
  • to mess me up, and love
  • 00:13:56.150 --> 00:13:58.160
  • to mess these pastors up,
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:13:59.280
  • and love to destroy
  • 00:13:59.280 --> 00:14:01.060
  • their marriages
  • 00:14:01.060 --> 00:14:02.020
  • and their children,
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:03.050
  • and somehow it have
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:04.280
  • a domino effect
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.040
  • of devastating families
  • 00:14:06.040 --> 00:14:07.140
  • in the church.
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:08.200
  • But he will not,
  • 00:14:08.200 --> 00:14:09.250
  • by the grace of God.
  • 00:14:09.250 --> 00:14:11.130
  • Greater is He that is in us
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:13.100
  • than he that is in the world.
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:14.290
  • Come on and give the Lord
  • 00:14:14.290 --> 00:14:16.030
  • a praise if you believe it.
  • 00:14:16.270 --> 00:14:19.270
  • Samson is
  • 00:14:19.270 --> 00:14:20.270
  • a prime example of an HVT.
  • 00:14:21.260 --> 00:14:24.260
  • He was a special man.
  • 00:14:24.260 --> 00:14:26.220
  • He was not like any other man
  • 00:14:26.220 --> 00:14:28.060
  • in Israel, the Bible said.
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:30.000
  • He had the power of God.
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:32.060
  • But Samson,
  • 00:14:32.060 --> 00:14:32.250
  • you're being stalked.
  • 00:14:32.250 --> 00:14:34.030
  • You're being studied.
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:35.140
  • You're being watched.
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:36.170
  • They're plotting and planning.
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:38.120
  • He had no idea, every time
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.250
  • he laid his head down
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:40.290
  • in Delilah's lap
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:42.170
  • that they were studying.
  • 00:14:42.170 --> 00:14:43.210
  • Standing off in the shadows.
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:45.110
  • Somebody -- a Philistine
  • 00:14:45.110 --> 00:14:46.240
  • was taking notes
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:47.230
  • on every weakness.
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:49.080
  • Every tendency.
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:50.130
  • Everything that he was doing.
  • 00:14:50.130 --> 00:14:52.110
  • Finally, she gave him
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.140
  • the most expensive haircut
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:56.070
  • in human history,
  • 00:14:56.070 --> 00:14:57.130
  • and he lost his power.
  • 00:14:57.130 --> 00:15:00.060
  • His mother and father
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:01.120
  • tried to warn him.
  • 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:02.120
  • God tried to warn him.
  • 00:15:02.120 --> 00:15:04.040
  • The enemy should
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:05.150
  • have warned him.
  • 00:15:05.150 --> 00:15:06.060
  • He should have woke up
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:07.040
  • and understood
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:08.160
  • what was taking place.
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:09.260
  • How did the enemy get him?
  • 00:15:09.260 --> 00:15:11.180
  • He started dating a Philistine.
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:15.110
  • And any time you get in
  • 00:15:16.210 --> 00:15:19.210
  • an unequally yoked situation
  • 00:15:19.210 --> 00:15:21.210
  • with friendships, or people,
  • 00:15:21.210 --> 00:15:23.170
  • or dating relationships,
  • 00:15:23.170 --> 00:15:25.120
  • it's a sign that
  • 00:15:25.120 --> 00:15:27.000
  • the enemy has declared
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:28.110
  • you are a high value target.
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:31.010
  • Judas was a high value target.
  • 00:15:31.010 --> 00:15:34.010
  • He was one of the original 12.
  • 00:15:34.010 --> 00:15:36.130
  • He was in the inner circle.
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:38.160
  • And how would
  • 00:15:38.160 --> 00:15:39.040
  • the enemy get him?
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:39.280
  • Through greed.
  • 00:15:39.280 --> 00:15:40.180
  • The love of money.
  • 00:15:40.180 --> 00:15:41.140
  • 30 pieces of silver.
  • 00:15:41.140 --> 00:15:43.240
  • I'm preaching to you today --
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:45.140
  • and I've been pastoring
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:46.050
  • a long time.
  • 00:15:46.050 --> 00:15:47.100
  • And I've watched people.
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:48.170
  • And it seemed like
  • 00:15:48.170 --> 00:15:49.050
  • the more that God blessed them,
  • 00:15:49.050 --> 00:15:50.180
  • the less that they took
  • 00:15:50.180 --> 00:15:52.010
  • their spiritual walk.
  • 00:15:52.010 --> 00:15:53.260
  • And they could see
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:55.000
  • their business explode
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:55.240
  • sometimes, but if you don't
  • 00:15:55.240 --> 00:15:57.100
  • keep that connection with God,
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:15:59.040
  • the enemy will slip in.
  • 00:15:59.040 --> 00:16:01.010
  • You're a high value target.
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:03.080
  • He'll mess the marriage up.
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:05.000
  • He'll mess the children up.
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:06.090
  • Let's not let it happen.
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:08.000
  • I believe today that
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:09.110
  • the power of God
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:10.260
  • and the Word of God
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:11.240
  • is our greatest defense.
  • 00:16:11.240 --> 00:16:14.090
  • Peter had
  • 00:16:14.090 --> 00:16:15.020
  • all kinds of problems.
  • 00:16:15.020 --> 00:16:17.010
  • He was cussing, and cutting
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:19.060
  • people's ears off,
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:20.240
  • and messing up,
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:22.090
  • and denying the Lord.
  • 00:16:22.090 --> 00:16:23.120
  • And he said, but still,
  • 00:16:23.120 --> 00:16:24.230
  • you are a high value target.
  • 00:16:24.230 --> 00:16:27.160
  • And then he makes this powerful,
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:29.200
  • profound statement.
  • 00:16:29.200 --> 00:16:31.250
  • Satan has desired to sift you,
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:34.060
  • but I have prayed for you
  • 00:16:36.090 --> 00:16:39.090
  • that your faith fail not.
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:42.150
  • You know, it's possible
  • 00:16:42.150 --> 00:16:44.030
  • that you can fail, and fall,
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:46.000
  • and mess up, but your faith
  • 00:16:46.000 --> 00:16:47.180
  • doesn't have to mess up,
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:49.210
  • and fall, and fail.
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:50.260
  • And it's not that we'll
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:52.080
  • ever measure up to be perfect,
  • 00:16:52.080 --> 00:16:53.200
  • but keep your faith intact.
  • 00:16:53.200 --> 00:16:55.230
  • That says a righteous man
  • 00:16:55.230 --> 00:16:57.150
  • falls seven times a day,
  • 00:16:57.150 --> 00:16:58.290
  • but rises again.
  • 00:16:59.120 --> 00:17:02.140
  • Get back up.
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:04.020
  • Get back up.
  • 00:17:04.020 --> 00:17:05.240
  • The enemy is never satisfied
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:10.180
  • until he takes
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:13.130
  • a high value target out.
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:16.120
  • But I've come today to declare
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:18.140
  • that no weapon
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:20.030
  • formed against you
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:22.040
  • shall prosper.
  • 00:17:22.040 --> 00:17:23.260
  • Every tongue that rises up,
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:26.100
  • he will condemn.
  • 00:17:26.100 --> 00:17:28.140
  • I've come today to declare
  • 00:17:28.140 --> 00:17:30.190
  • that the attempts, and plots,
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:33.010
  • and strategies of your enemy --
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:35.090
  • when the enemy comes in
  • 00:17:35.090 --> 00:17:36.230
  • like a flood,
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:38.060
  • the spirit of the Lord will
  • 00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:40.110
  • raise up a standard against him.
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:43.110
  • And where sin abounds,
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:45.050
  • grace doth much more abound.
  • 00:17:45.050 --> 00:17:47.090
  • And here's
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:48.000
  • what I want you to get.
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:49.010
  • If you feel like
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:49.240
  • you're under attack,
  • 00:17:49.240 --> 00:17:50.250
  • if you feel like
  • 00:17:50.250 --> 00:17:52.000
  • you're dealing with things
  • 00:17:52.000 --> 00:17:53.170
  • you've never had to deal with
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:54.260
  • before, and you feel like
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:56.110
  • you've made hell's
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:57.120
  • most wanted list,
  • 00:17:57.120 --> 00:17:58.190
  • you are a high value target,
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:18:00.290
  • here's God's word to you.
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:02.170
  • Jesus -- our intercessor,
  • 00:18:02.170 --> 00:18:04.180
  • our high priest --
  • 00:18:04.180 --> 00:18:05.220
  • is praying for you
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:07.210
  • this very day.
  • 00:18:07.210 --> 00:18:09.210
  • When I feel like giving up,
  • 00:18:09.210 --> 00:18:11.120
  • when I feel like I can't
  • 00:18:11.120 --> 00:18:12.120
  • go on -- to know that
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:14.170
  • He ever lives to make
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:16.130
  • intercession for you and I.
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:19.240
  • You're going to make it.
  • 00:18:19.240 --> 00:18:21.190
  • But sometimes you need to come
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:22.230
  • to church to get
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:23.160
  • your thinking right,
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:24.180
  • and get your head on straight,
  • 00:18:24.180 --> 00:18:26.110
  • and to understand
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:27.040
  • that you need to be awake
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:28.100
  • and fully alert.
  • 00:18:28.250 --> 00:18:31.250
  • Because this is an hour when,
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:35.050
  • if you go to sleep spiritually,
  • 00:18:35.210 --> 00:18:38.210
  • the enemy will take you out,
  • 00:18:38.230 --> 00:18:41.230
  • or take someone out
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:42.180
  • in your family.
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:43.280
  • But I believe today
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:45.290
  • that there's power
  • 00:18:45.290 --> 00:18:47.060
  • in the blood of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:50.120
  • and that power can absolutely
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:53.140
  • cause us to overcome
  • 00:18:53.140 --> 00:18:55.210
  • all the power of the enemy.
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:58.130
  • No scheme of hell will work.
  • 00:19:00.070 --> 00:19:03.070
  • If we're connected --
  • 00:19:03.070 --> 00:19:04.280
  • He that dwells
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:05.170
  • in the secret place
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:07.070
  • under the shadow of the Almighty
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:10.180
  • will say I, Lord,
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:12.080
  • am trusting in you.
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:13.250
  • You're my refuge
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:14.240
  • and my strength.
  • 00:19:14.240 --> 00:19:16.060
  • And you don't have to fall.
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:18.100
  • You don't have to fail.
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.050
  • And I really feel this
  • 00:19:20.050 --> 00:19:21.040
  • for teenagers.
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:22.040
  • I really feel this
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:22.270
  • for college students.
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.040
  • I really feel this
  • 00:19:24.040 --> 00:19:24.240
  • for dads and moms.
  • 00:19:24.240 --> 00:19:27.150
  • You're a high value target.
  • 00:19:27.150 --> 00:19:29.190
  • Preachers' kids, pastors' kids,
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:32.050
  • you're a high value target.
  • 00:19:32.050 --> 00:19:34.250
  • Business man who is successful,
  • 00:19:34.250 --> 00:19:36.270
  • making money, being blessed,
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:38.290
  • be careful.
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:40.130
  • You're a high value target.
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:42.200
  • The enemy would love
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:43.190
  • to take you out
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:45.090
  • because then it affects
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:46.110
  • everybody that you have
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:47.230
  • great influence with.
  • 00:19:47.290 --> 00:19:50.290
  • But we won't fail,
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:52.050
  • and we won't fall
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:53.110
  • if we're connected to the vine.
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:56.210
  • Without me, you can do nothing,
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:19:59.290
  • Jesus said.
  • 00:19:59.290 --> 00:20:01.100
  • But through Him, we can do
  • 00:20:01.100 --> 00:20:03.080
  • all things through Christ,
  • 00:20:03.080 --> 00:20:05.010
  • who strengthens us.
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:06.100
  • Do you believe that?
  • 00:20:06.100 --> 00:20:07.260
  • Stand to your feet
  • 00:20:07.260 --> 00:20:08.150
  • all over this room,
  • 00:20:08.150 --> 00:20:09.250
  • every head bowed
  • 00:20:09.250 --> 00:20:10.130
  • at every campus.
  • 00:20:10.130 --> 00:20:12.180
  • Every head bowed,
  • 00:20:12.180 --> 00:20:13.100
  • every eye closed.
  • 00:20:13.100 --> 00:20:14.190
  • No one moving please
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:15.260
  • in reverence
  • 00:20:15.260 --> 00:20:16.290
  • to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:21.100
  • If you're under the sound
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:22.080
  • of my voice right now
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:23.100
  • and you would say,
  • 00:20:23.100 --> 00:20:24.030
  • "Pastor Jentezen,
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:27.080
  • I don't want it to take
  • 00:20:27.100 --> 00:20:30.100
  • some terrible episode
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:34.180
  • of failure in my life
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:35.270
  • for me to wake up.
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:40.090
  • I sense that I'm in weak place.
  • 00:20:40.090 --> 00:20:42.170
  • I sense that I'm in
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:43.160
  • a distant place."
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:46.160
  • I'm going to go even further.
  • 00:20:46.160 --> 00:20:47.220
  • I want to be very plain.
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:49.090
  • Maybe you don't know
  • 00:20:49.090 --> 00:20:50.120
  • Jesus Christ
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.100
  • as your Lord and Savior
  • 00:20:51.100 --> 00:20:52.210
  • and you fail to realize
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:54.000
  • in God's eyes
  • 00:20:54.000 --> 00:20:55.070
  • you are a high valued target.
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:58.050
  • Heaven is reaching for you
  • 00:20:58.050 --> 00:21:00.050
  • in this service
  • 00:21:00.050 --> 00:21:00.230
  • and so is hell,
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:01.250
  • and it's your hand
  • 00:21:01.250 --> 00:21:03.050
  • that will go to one
  • 00:21:03.050 --> 00:21:04.030
  • of those hands.
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:06.270
  • And if you'll reach out
  • 00:21:06.270 --> 00:21:07.190
  • to Him He'll take you,
  • 00:21:07.250 --> 00:21:10.250
  • and He'll cleanse,
  • 00:21:10.250 --> 00:21:12.090
  • and He'll forgive,
  • 00:21:12.090 --> 00:21:13.180
  • and He'll wash you
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:14.100
  • like you've never had
  • 00:21:14.100 --> 00:21:16.090
  • before in your life.
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:17.230
  • Are you ready?
  • 00:21:17.230 --> 00:21:18.280
  • Let's pray this prayer.
  • 00:21:18.280 --> 00:21:20.160
  • Everyone pray it out loud
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:21.270
  • at every campus.
  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:22.220
  • Say, "Lord Jesus,
  • 00:21:22.220 --> 00:21:24.180
  • I surrender my life
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:26.190
  • completely to you.
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:28.240
  • I know You died on the cross.
  • 00:21:28.270 --> 00:21:31.270
  • You paid the price
  • 00:21:31.270 --> 00:21:33.260
  • for my freedom.
  • 00:21:33.260 --> 00:21:36.070
  • The price of freedom
  • 00:21:36.070 --> 00:21:37.270
  • is blood and You shed
  • 00:21:37.270 --> 00:21:40.050
  • Your precious blood for me.
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:44.070
  • And today I receive You
  • 00:21:44.070 --> 00:21:47.060
  • as my freedom,
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.060
  • as my liberator.
  • 00:21:49.060 --> 00:21:50.280
  • Jesus You're my Savior
  • 00:21:50.280 --> 00:21:53.030
  • and You're my Lord;
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:54.240
  • and I confess You before men.
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:57.040
  • Say this,
  • 00:21:57.040 --> 00:21:57.210
  • "I receive
  • 00:21:57.210 --> 00:21:59.250
  • eternal life
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:01.050
  • through Jesus Christ.
  • 00:22:01.050 --> 00:22:03.050
  • I will never die
  • 00:22:03.050 --> 00:22:05.050
  • and go to hell.
  • 00:22:05.050 --> 00:22:06.160
  • And the enemy's plots
  • 00:22:06.160 --> 00:22:09.060
  • are defeated.
  • 00:22:09.060 --> 00:22:10.250
  • Greater is He that is in me
  • 00:22:10.250 --> 00:22:13.040
  • than he that is in the world."
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:14.260
  • Now lift up your hands
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:16.050
  • and give God a great shout
  • 00:22:16.050 --> 00:22:18.010
  • of praise.
  • 00:22:18.010 --> 00:22:20.130

  • has been wiped cleaned.
  • 00:22:39.140 --> 00:22:42.140
  • "I even I am He that blots out

  • your transgressions
  • 00:22:44.130 --> 00:22:45.270
  • to remember your past no more."
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:49.090
  • God said, "Quit talking
  • 00:22:49.090 --> 00:22:50.180
  • about your past.
  • 00:22:50.180 --> 00:22:52.000

  • and it annoys me
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:54.270
  • when you keep bringing it up.
  • 00:22:54.270 --> 00:22:56.210
  • Let it go.
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:57.120
  • That's who you used to be;
  • 00:22:57.120 --> 00:22:59.100
  • that's not who you are now.
  • 00:22:59.100 --> 00:23:01.120
  • You're mine."
  • 00:23:01.120 --> 00:23:02.140
  • Isn't that beautiful;
  • 00:23:02.140 --> 00:23:03.170
