  • - IT'S BEEN INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:10.230
  • I'VE BEEN STRETCHED, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:12.090
  • OBVIOUSLY TAKING OVER THE SECOND CAMPUS IN DENVER
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:15.080
  • WHICH IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM L.A..
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:17.080
  • L.A. IS A PRIMARILY A MILLENNIAL DRIVEN CHURCH
  • 00:06:17.100 --> 00:06:21.020
  • WHERE DENVER IS MORE OF MULTI-GENERATIONAL, AND
  • 00:06:21.040 --> 00:06:24.100
  • IT'S SOMEWHAT IN THE MIDWEST, SO IT'S
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:27.240
  • CHALLENGED ME [ CLEARS THROAT ] TO MINISTER TO A
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:31.270
  • BROADER COMMUNITY.
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:33.010
  • AND IT AWESOME.
  • 00:06:33.030 --> 00:06:34.120
  • AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT IS GOD NEVER CHALLENGES
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:37.290
  • YOU BEYOND YOUR ABILITY.
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:40.010
  • HE CHALLENGES YOU ACCORDING TO
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:41.290
  • YOUR ABILITY.
  • 00:06:42.010 --> 00:06:43.170
  • SO THERE ARE THINGS THAT HE'S PLACED ON THE INSIDE
  • 00:06:43.190 --> 00:06:45.040
  • OF YOU THAT REQUIRE CERTAIN ENVIRONMENTS FOR
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:48.080
  • THOSE THINGS TO COME OUT, AND SO IT'S BEEN
  • 00:06:48.100 --> 00:06:50.290
  • CHALLENGING BUT ALSO GOOD.
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:52.210
  • I AM DEFINED BY THE GIANTS THAT GOD PLACES IN
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:57.000
  • FRONT OF YOU BECAUSE IF HE PLACES THE GIANT IN
  • 00:06:57.020 --> 00:06:59.180
  • FRONT OF ME, NO MATTER WHAT THAT GIANT IS, NEW
  • 00:06:59.200 --> 00:07:01.290
  • MINISTRY, NEW MARRIAGE, RAISING A CHILD OR
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:04.250
  • WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE, THE GIANT SAYS I'M GREATER
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:08.230
  • THAN IT, SO WITH THE GIANT COMES MY PROMOTION.
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:11.280
  • I RECOGNIZE IT, AND THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN
  • 00:07:12.000 --> 00:07:14.130
  • EXPERIENCING IN THIS SEASON.
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:16.040
  • - WELL, I WANT TO KIND OF PUT TOGETHER IN
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:18.110
  • PEOPLE'S MINDS JUST REALLY THE DYNAMIC OF
  • 00:07:18.130 --> 00:07:21.230
  • WHAT HAS HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:21.250 --> 00:07:23.080
  • FIRST, LET'S LOOK AT L.A. AGAIN.
  • 00:07:23.100 --> 00:07:26.030
  • YOU ARE TOUCHING A SEGMENT OF CULTURE THAT
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:30.140
  • THE CHURCH HASN'T REALLY DONE A GOOD JOB
  • 00:07:30.160 --> 00:07:32.140
  • CONNECTING, THE MILLENNIALS, YOUNG, AND
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:35.120
  • THEN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY WHERE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:38.020
  • WHEN I PREACH AT YOUR CHURCH I'M LOOKING AND I
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.280
  • SEE FACES, I'M LIKE WOW, I'VE SEEN
  • 00:07:40.000 --> 00:07:42.040
  • THESE FACES BEFORE.
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:43.200
  • AND THEN JUST THE PASSION OF BOTH THE YOUNG AND
  • 00:07:43.220 --> 00:07:47.240
  • THE ENTERTAINMENT.
  • 00:07:47.260 --> 00:07:49.060
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T STRATEGIZE FOR THIS.
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:53.010
  • YOU CAN'T SIT DOWN IN A PLANNING ROOM AND SAY,
  • 00:07:53.030 --> 00:07:54.290
  • THIS IS THE MARKET WE'RE GOING AFTER.
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:57.000
  • HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:07:58.130
  • AND HOW HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO STEP INTO THAT
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:08:00.280
  • ROLE WHERE YOU'RE ABLE TO BE A VOICE TO BOTH THE
  • 00:08:01.000 --> 00:08:03.280
  • YOUNG AND PEOPLE THAT ARE SHAKING AND SHAPING
  • 00:08:04.000 --> 00:08:06.160
  • OUR CULTURE?
  • 00:08:06.180 --> 00:08:07.180
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:08:07.200 --> 00:08:09.000
  • I THINK IT REALLY BEGINS WITH OBEDIENCE BECAUSE
  • 00:08:09.020 --> 00:08:11.020
  • GOD, WE WERE IN A CERTAIN PART OF TOWN, AND THEN
  • 00:08:11.040 --> 00:08:13.240
  • GOD TOLD US TO MOVE TO ANOTHER PART OF TOWN
  • 00:08:13.260 --> 00:08:15.250
  • WHICH WAS ACTUALLY VERY INCONVENIENT, BUT IT WAS
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:18.190
  • A CLEAR INSTRUCTION FROM GOD.
  • 00:08:18.210 --> 00:08:20.030
  • WHEN WE GOT THERE, THE FASTEST GROWING
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:22.010
  • DEMOGRAPHIC IN THE CHURCH WERE YOUNG ARTISTS,
  • 00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:25.090
  • MILLENNIALS IN ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT.
  • 00:08:25.110 --> 00:08:28.250
  • SO WHAT GOD BEGAN TO DO WAS HE BEGAN TO GIVE ME
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:32.120
  • LANGUAGE FOR THEM.
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:33.230
  • I THINK ONE OF THE REASONS WHY SOMETIMES A
  • 00:08:33.250 --> 00:08:36.010
  • CHURCH STRUGGLES WITH REACHING CERTAIN SECTORS
  • 00:08:36.030 --> 00:08:38.080
  • OF THE POPULATION IS BECAUSE A CHURCH DOESN'T
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.170
  • HAVE THE RIGHT LANGUAGE.
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:42.040
  • THE CHURCH IS SPEAKING CHRISTIANESE OR VARIOUS
  • 00:08:42.060 --> 00:08:45.060
  • THINGS WHICH IS WONDERFUL FOR THE CHURCH, BUT NOT
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:47.110
  • WHEN YOU'RE REACHING OUTSIDE THE WALLS, SO FOR
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:49.240
  • ME HE GAVE THE BOTH OF US THE TONGUE THAT WE
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:53.210
  • LEARNED FOR THAT GENERATION.
  • 00:08:53.230 --> 00:08:55.150
  • AND I THINK THAT WHATEVER GOD IS CALLING YOU, THAT
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:58.230
  • MEANS HE HAS A PEOPLE ASSIGNED TO YOUR VOICE,
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:02.250
  • AND SO I THINK THAT'S WHY IT WAS --THERE WAS A
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:05.190
  • GRACE ON IT.
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:07.010

  • ACTS 2 WHERE THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME
  • 00:09:19.110 --> 00:09:21.170
  • UPON THEM AND THEY SPOKE IN EVERY MAN'S LANGUAGE.
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:25.090
  • WE NEED THAT ANOINTING NOW MORE THAN EVER
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:27.180
  • BECAUSE THERE'S A LANGUAGE OF WHICH WE
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:30.170

  • STARTS WITH A MOM AND A GRANDMOTHER AND YOU'RE
  • 00:15:43.170 --> 00:15:46.020
  • EXACTLY RIGHT, WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:48.080
  • THAT IS REALLY THE CORNERSTONE OF YOUR
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:50.270
  • MANDATE, YOU KNOW, JEREMIAH 29: 11, WHEN YOU
  • 00:15:50.290 --> 00:15:54.120
  • THINK ABOUT IT IN THE CONTEXT OF IT, THAT WAS
  • 00:15:54.140 --> 00:15:57.160
  • WRITTEN 70 YEARS BEFORE IT WOULD MANIFEST.
  • 00:15:57.180 --> 00:16:02.140
  • GOD WAS SAYING I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THAT WHEN YOU
  • 00:16:02.160 --> 00:16:06.200
  • GO THROUGH 70 YEARS AS A NATION OF PAIN AND
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:09.290
  • SUFFERING, JUST REMEMBER THAT I KNEW YOU.
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:14.070
  • THE PLANS THAT I HAVE FOR YOU ARE GOOD, AND THAT'S
  • 00:16:14.090 --> 00:16:16.290
  • WHERE I THINK PEOPLE LOSE HOPE IS WHEN THE OPPOSITE
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:19.290
  • HAPPENS, WHEN SOMEONE GIVES YOU A WORD AND SAYS
  • 00:16:20.010 --> 00:16:23.060
  • GOD HAS PLANS FOR YOU, NOT EVIL, TO DO GOOD, AND
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:26.130
  • THEN YOU GO THROUGH 70 YEARS OF EVIL.
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:29.170
  • AND YOU HAVE TO THINK NO, THIS IS NOT RIGHT.
  • 00:16:29.190 --> 00:16:32.230
  • IT IN FACT IS RIGHT.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:34.150
  • SARAH, I THINK ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:35.280
  • BOTH OF YOU, GREAT PRAYING PARENTS, A MOTHER
  • 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:39.120
  • AND A GRANDMOTHER.
  • 00:16:39.140 --> 00:16:41.080
  • YOU, THE PAIN OF WHAT IT MUST HAVE FELT TO SEE A
  • 00:16:41.100 --> 00:16:47.230
  • SEEMINGLY THE OPPOSITE, THE CIRCUMSTANCES MOCKING
  • 00:16:47.250 --> 00:16:52.160
  • AS IT WERE YOUR MOM AND DAD'S FAITHFULNESS TO
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:53.220
  • PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:54.170
  • YOU FACED THAT.
  • 00:16:54.190 --> 00:16:55.180
  • - FOR SURE.
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:56.250
  • I GREW UP OBVIOUSLY IN A HOUSEHOLD WHERE PRAYER
  • 00:16:56.270 --> 00:16:59.120
  • AND CHURCH WERE VERY MUCH A CONSTANT IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:16:59.140 --> 00:17:02.100
  • BUT I THINK THAT ONE OF THE MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:04.230
  • BEING A CHRISTIAN IS THAT ONCE I GIVE MY LIFE TO
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:06.240
  • JESUS THEN I'M NOT GOING TO FEEL ANY MORE PAIN
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:09.130
  • WHEN IN ACTUALITY WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO
  • 00:17:09.150 --> 00:17:11.130
  • JESUS THAT'S WHEN YOU REALLY BEGIN TO HAVE ALL
  • 00:17:11.150 --> 00:17:13.260
  • OF THESE THINGS COME TO THE SURFACE, AND I
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:16.100
  • BELIEVE THAT GOD PUTS US IN CIRCUMSTANCES FOR
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:18.160
  • THOSE THINGS TO COME TO THE SURFACE SO WE CAN
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:20.260
  • BECOME THE PERSON WORTHY OF THE PURPOSE HE HAS
  • 00:17:20.280 --> 00:17:23.030
  • FOR OUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:23.050 --> 00:17:24.160
  • AND SO YOU COULD HAVE NEVER TOLD ME AS A TEEN
  • 00:17:24.180 --> 00:17:26.270
  • MOM THAT THERE WOULD BE MINISTRY DOWN ON THE
  • 00:17:26.290 --> 00:17:28.180
  • INSIDE OF ME.
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:29.230
  • I FELT REJECTED.
  • 00:17:29.250 --> 00:17:31.000
  • I FELT LIKE THE CHURCH WAS DEFINITELY NOT A
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:32.110
  • PLACE FOR ME BECAUSE I DIDN'T DO EVERYTHING THE
  • 00:17:32.130 --> 00:17:34.110
  • RIGHT WAY, AND THEN I REALIZED THAT THERE WAS A
  • 00:17:34.130 --> 00:17:36.270
  • WE CONNECTED TO THAT, AND BECAUSE THERE WAS A WE,
  • 00:17:36.290 --> 00:17:39.200
  • THERE WAS SOMEONE ELSE WHO NEEDED TO HEAR MY
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:41.090
  • STORY, SOMEONE ELSE WHO NEEDED TO UNDERSTAND THEY
  • 00:17:41.110 --> 00:17:43.090
  • ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS FELT THE WAY
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:45.090
  • THAT I FELT.
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:46.220
  • THEN THEY GAVE ME STRENGTH, BUT I DON'T
  • 00:17:46.240 --> 00:17:48.170
  • THINK I WOULD HAVE HAD THAT STRENGTH UNLESS LIFE
  • 00:17:48.190 --> 00:17:50.050
  • DIDN'T GO THE WAY I PLANNED FOR IT TO, AND I
  • 00:17:50.070 --> 00:17:52.040
  • THINK THAT IS SUCH A WORD FOR ANYONE REALLY
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:55.020
  • WATCHING AND YOU'RE SAYING LISTEN, MY LIFE IS
  • 00:17:55.040 --> 00:17:56.260
  • CRAZY RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:58.150
  • I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW ANY GOOD CAN COME
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:18:00.170
  • OUT OF IT.
  • 00:18:00.190 --> 00:18:01.270
  • I WOULD SAY TO STOP LOOKING AT THE CIRCUMSTANCE
  • 00:18:01.290 --> 00:18:04.030
  • AND DARE TO LOOK WITHIN. WHO AM I BECOMING AS A
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:06.090
  • RESULT OF MY NEED TO SURVIVE?
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:09.130
  • WHO AM I BECOMING AS A RESULT OF MY NEED TO
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:11.210
  • PRESS IN LIKE NEVER BEFORE?
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:13.080
  • GOD, WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SHOW ME IN THE
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:14.240
  • MIDST OF THIS STORM?
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:16.080
  • AND WHEN WE SURRENDER EVERYTHING,
  • 00:18:16.100 --> 00:18:18.000
  • EVEN THE IDEA OF HOW OUR DAY SHOULD GO,
  • 00:18:18.020 --> 00:18:20.100
  • HOW OUR MARRIAGE SHOULD LOOK,
  • 00:18:20.120 --> 00:18:21.230
  • HOW OUR KIDS SHOULD BE RAISED, OVER TO GOD,
  • 00:18:21.250 --> 00:18:23.240
  • AND SAY SHOW ME, TEACH ME, I WANT TO LEARN,
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:26.010
  • I WANT TO BE A SERVANT IN THIS PROCESS, THEN I
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:28.010
  • BELIEVE WE BEGIN TO GET CLUES ABOUT OUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:18:28.030 --> 00:18:31.030
  • - I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:33.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:35.160
  • YOU KNOW, PT, THERE IS SO MANY PEOPLE LOCKED DOWN
  • 00:18:35.180 --> 00:18:40.200
  • AND POLARIZED BY THEIR MISTAKES AND BY THEIR
  • 00:18:40.220 --> 00:18:42.280
  • FAILURES. I WANT US TO BELIEVE.
  • 00:18:43.000 --> 00:18:45.070
  • I WANT YOU TO SPEAK TO THE GRANDMOTHER AND THE
  • 00:18:45.090 --> 00:18:49.190
  • MOM THAT IS FEELING AS IF THEIR PRAYERS ARE FALLING
  • 00:18:49.210 --> 00:18:54.070
  • TO THE GROUND, THEY'RE TRIPPING OVER THEM AND
  • 00:18:54.090 --> 00:18:56.010
  • THAT NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN. YOU WERE THERE.
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:19:00.040
  • - YEAH, I THINK THAT THE BEST WORD TO SUM IT ALL
  • 00:19:00.060 --> 00:19:03.210
  • UP IS HEBREWS 10:35 WHICH SAYS CAST NOT THEREFORE
  • 00:19:03.230 --> 00:19:08.060
  • AWAY YOUR CONFIDENCE, WHEREIN THERE'S GREAT
  • 00:19:08.080 --> 00:19:12.070
  • REWARD FOR YOU HAVE NEED OF PATIENCE, AND AFTER
  • 00:19:12.090 --> 00:19:14.260
  • YOU'VE DONE THE WILL OF GOD, YOU SHALL INHERIT THE
  • 00:19:14.280 --> 00:19:16.240
  • PROMISE. WHAT IT'S SAYING IS, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:19.030
  • CAST NOT THEREFORE AWAY YOUR CONFIDENCE.
  • 00:19:19.050 --> 00:19:21.050
  • THAT WORD THAT WAS TRANSLATED CONFIDENCE IS
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:23.050
  • THE WORD, IT CAN BE BETTER TRANSLATED EXPECTATION.
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:27.060
  • IT SAYS DON'T CAST AWAY YOUR EXPECTATION.
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:30.060
  • HOPE DEFERRED MAKES THE HEART SICK.
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:33.250
  • WHEN WE ARE DISAPPOINTED OR LET DOWN, WE HAVE A
  • 00:19:33.270 --> 00:19:37.090
  • TENDENCY TO SURRENDER OUR EXPECTATION.
  • 00:19:37.110 --> 00:19:41.130
  • AND THE WORD SAYS THAT YOU CAN'T CAST AWAY YOUR
  • 00:19:41.150 --> 00:19:46.000
  • EXPECTATION BECAUSE THEREIN,
  • 00:19:46.020 --> 00:19:48.130
  • IN THAT EXPECTATION IS YOUR REWARD.
  • 00:19:48.150 --> 00:19:51.060
  • IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU CAN HOLD ON TO THE WORD
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:54.160
  • THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO YOU, AND LET THAT-- SEE,
  • 00:19:54.180 --> 00:19:57.190
  • THE WORD IS STRONG ENOUGH TO WITHSTAND YOUR
  • 00:19:57.210 --> 00:19:59.220
  • DISAPPOINTMENT. YOU'VE JUST GOT TO MAKE
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:01.150
  • SURE YOU DON'T FUMBLE THE WORD.
  • 00:20:01.170 --> 00:20:03.100
  • THE WORD IS STRONGER THAN WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:05.210
  • THE WORD IS THE ROCK.
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:07.160
  • IT WAS SETTLED FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:10.070
  • AND I KNOW THAT WE MIGHT GET WEARY,
  • 00:20:10.090 --> 00:20:12.010
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS DON'T GET WEARY IN YOUR WELL
  • 00:20:12.030 --> 00:20:14.260
  • DOING, FOR IN DUE SEASON, YOU ARE GOING TO REAP IF
  • 00:20:14.280 --> 00:20:18.080
  • YOU DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.060
  • SO KEEP SOWING, KEEP SOWING EXPECTATION,
  • 00:20:20.080 --> 00:20:23.100
  • KEEP SOWING FAITH, KEEP SOWING INSPIRATION AND
  • 00:20:23.120 --> 00:20:26.180
  • ENCOURAGEMENT. KEEP SPEAKING LIKE MY PARENTS DID.
  • 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:29.170
  • KEEP SPEAKING OVER THIS SHALL COME TO PASS.
  • 00:20:29.190 --> 00:20:32.080
  • AND WHEN THE ENEMY COMES IN LIKE A FLOOD AND TRIES
  • 00:20:32.100 --> 00:20:34.270
  • TO TALK YOU OUT OF WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO YOU,
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:37.270
  • WHEN GOD GIVES YOU A WORD, HE HAS GIVEN YOU
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:39.260
  • SOMETHING. YOU LITERALLY HAVE SOMETHING.
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:42.050
  • FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR,
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:44.220
  • THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.
  • 00:20:44.240 --> 00:20:46.250
  • FIGHT FOR IT. FIGHT THROUGH YOUR TEARS.
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:48.170
  • FIGHT THROUGH YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 00:20:48.190 --> 00:20:50.090
  • HOLD ON TO THAT WORD BECAUSE IN THE END,
  • 00:20:50.110 --> 00:20:53.170
  • IT IS GOING TO SPEAK.
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:55.180
  • BE LIKE ANNA AND SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:20:57.210
  • I'M NOT GONNA DIE UNTIL I SEE WHAT I BELIEVE GOD
  • 00:20:57.230 --> 00:21:01.030
  • FOR MANIFEST IN FRONT OF MY EYES.
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:04.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:08.220
  • - YEAH. YEAH. IT DOESN'T STOP, DOES IT.
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:10.230
  • I MEAN, YOU KNOW, YOU GOT CALLED INTO MINISTRY.
  • 00:21:10.250 --> 00:21:14.070
  • MAMA'S PRAYER WAS ANSWERED.
  • 00:21:14.090 --> 00:21:17.140
  • BUT YOU'VE GOTTA HOLD ON TO THAT EXPECTATION BECAUSE
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:19.250
  • IT DOESN'T STOP. THE ATTACKS DON'T STOP.
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:22.000
  • THE PROCESS DOESN'T STOP.
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:24.070
  • TELEVISION HAS A WAY OF PROJECTING A
  • 00:21:24.090 --> 00:21:27.070
  • ONE-DIMENSIONAL LOOK. PEOPLE COME BY THE SCREEN,
  • 00:21:27.090 --> 00:21:29.210
  • THEY LOOK AND SAY OH, WOW,
  • 00:21:29.230 --> 00:21:30.280
  • I'VE HEARD ABOUT THIS COUPLE.
  • 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:33.000
  • MANY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE INFLUENCE THAT YOU
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:35.020
  • HAVE ACROSS THIS COUNTRY, AND YET YOU DON'T JUST
  • 00:21:35.040 --> 00:21:39.090
  • GO THROUGH A THING. IT IS A CONSTANT JOURNEY.
  • 00:21:39.110 --> 00:21:42.060
  • I MEAN, THERE WERE MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE, PT,
  • 00:21:42.080 --> 00:21:45.220
  • THAT YOU, EVEN AFTER HAVING RECEIVED A CALL TO
  • 00:21:45.240 --> 00:21:48.130
  • MINISTRY THAT THINGS WERE COMING AGAINST THE VERY
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:52.260
  • DESTINY YOU KNEW BELONGED TO YOU.
  • 00:21:52.280 --> 00:21:56.110
  • - CERTAINLY.
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:57.220
  • I THINK THAT WHEN GOD CALLED ME TO PREACH,
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:22:00.180
  • HE REVEALED TO ME HOW ENORMOUS THE CALL OF GOD
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:07.010
  • THAT WAS ON MY LIFE WAS. I MEAN, HUGE.
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:09.280
  • NOT BY DESCRIPTION BUT BY THE TOUCH OF MY HEART.
  • 00:22:10.000 --> 00:22:16.250
  • HE ENLARGED MY HEART FOR THE VISION.
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:18.220
  • SO I KNEW THAT IT WAS HUGE,
  • 00:22:18.240 --> 00:22:21.000
  • BUT WHEN I TELL YOU I WENT THROUGH THINGS THAT
  • 00:22:21.020 --> 00:22:24.190
  • WOULD DISQUALIFY, THAT I WOULD DISQUALIFY MYSELF
  • 00:22:24.210 --> 00:22:29.210
  • FROM THE HUGE, NAMELY GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE.
  • 00:22:29.230 --> 00:22:32.280
  • NO SCANDALS, NO ADULTERY, JUST OVER.
  • 00:22:33.000 --> 00:22:36.240
  • AND SOMETIMES WHEN THINGS HAPPEN TO YOU,
  • 00:22:36.260 --> 00:22:40.120
  • YOU BELIEVE THAT WHEN ONE THING LEAVES,
  • 00:22:40.140 --> 00:22:45.160
  • THE PROMISE LEAVES.
  • 00:22:45.180 --> 00:22:48.020
  • AND I HAD TO REALLY HOLD ONTO,
  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:52.190
  • I HAD TO CAST NOT AWAY MY CONFIDENCE AND TO LOOK UP
  • 00:22:52.210 --> 00:22:56.190
  • AND TO SEE HOW GOD, EVEN IN SPITE OF AND TO A
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:23:02.030
  • CERTAIN DEGREE IN CONJUNCTION WITH,
  • 00:23:02.050 --> 00:23:06.050
  • USED THAT THING TO BRING ME INTO MY PURPOSE.
  • 00:23:06.070 --> 00:23:09.080
  • SOMETIMES YOUR PURPOSE AND YOUR DESTINY IS
  • 00:23:09.100 --> 00:23:11.270
  • PACKAGED LIKE A DILEMMA.
  • 00:23:11.290 --> 00:23:14.040
  • IT'S DRESSED UP LIKE TROUBLE,
  • 00:23:14.060 --> 00:23:16.210
  • AND YOU JUST HAVE TO LEARN TO FACE IT,
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:19.220
  • STAND UP TO IT, AND KNOW THAT THE BETS ARE STILL ON.
  • 00:23:19.240 --> 00:23:24.130
  • THE STEPS OF A GOOD MAN ARE ORDERED BY THE LORD,
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:27.270
  • AND HE DELIGHTS IN HIS WAY.
  • 00:23:27.290 --> 00:23:29.180
  • THOUGH HE FALL, HE SHALL NOT UTTERLY BE CAST DOWN
  • 00:23:29.200 --> 00:23:32.040
  • BECAUSE THE LORD UPHOLDS HIM BY HIS RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:23:32.060 --> 00:23:35.200
  • RIGHT HAND. AND I'VE GOT TELL YOU, PASTOR PHIL,
  • 00:23:35.220 --> 00:23:39.050
  • I'VE HAD THIS DREAM IN MY HEART AS IT RELATES TO
  • 00:23:39.070 --> 00:23:43.020
  • GOD AND DOING GREAT THINGS,
  • 00:23:43.040 --> 00:23:44.180
  • AND TOUCHING THE WORLD FOR JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:23:44.200 --> 00:23:46.290
  • BUT IT HAS SEEMED LIKE FOR-- AND I'VE BEEN IN
  • 00:23:47.010 --> 00:23:49.100
  • MINISTRY FOR 17 YEARS, SO IT SEEMED LIKE IT WAS
  • 00:23:49.120 --> 00:23:52.110
  • TAKING LONG. IT WAS LIKE, IS THIS GONNA HAPPEN?
  • 00:23:52.130 --> 00:23:55.190
  • AND THEN A SUDDENLY, AS YOU ARE FAITHFUL OVER
  • 00:23:55.210 --> 00:24:00.110
  • WHAT'S IN FRONT OF YOU, AND YOU STAY FOCUSED ON
  • 00:24:00.130 --> 00:24:03.070
  • THE CALL OF GOD, LOVING GOD, LOVING PEOPLE,
  • 00:24:03.090 --> 00:24:06.060
  • AND I LOOKED UP ONE DAY.
  • 00:24:06.080 --> 00:24:08.040
  • I'M SERIOUS. THIS WAS SUDDENLY.
  • 00:24:08.060 --> 00:24:09.150
  • I BELIEVE THERE'S A SUDDENLY IN STORE FOR
  • 00:24:09.170 --> 00:24:11.270
  • SOMEBODY. IF YOU'RE WATCHING US RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:24:11.290 --> 00:24:14.030
  • I THINK THERE'S A SUDDENLY ASSIGNED TO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:24:14.050 --> 00:24:17.080
  • I HEAR GOD SAYING, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE,
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:19.000
  • DON'T BE WEARY IN YOUR WELL DOING.
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:21.140
  • KEEP ON SOWING. KEEP ON BELIEVING.
  • 00:24:21.160 --> 00:24:24.230
  • CHECK YOUR HEART. LAY IT DOWN.
  • 00:24:24.250 --> 00:24:27.150
  • FAST, PRAY AND FIGHT, AND YOU'RE GONNA LOOK UP,
  • 00:24:27.170 --> 00:24:30.120
  • AND IT'S GONNA BE SUDDENLY WHERE THERE IS A
  • 00:24:30.140 --> 00:24:32.240
  • RESTORATION OF THINGS. EVERYTHING THAT YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:24:32.260 --> 00:24:35.250
  • YOU-- I FEEL IT FOR SOMEBODY.
  • 00:24:35.270 --> 00:24:38.080
  • IT'S COMING BACK TO YOU NOW JUST AS IF IT WERE
  • 00:24:38.100 --> 00:24:45.070
  • THERE THE ENTIRE TIME.
  • 00:24:45.090 --> 00:24:47.020
  • IT'S COMING. IT'S COMING.
  • 00:24:47.040 --> 00:24:49.170
  • - I FEEL THAT STRONG TOO,
  • 00:24:49.190 --> 00:24:51.120
  • ESPECIALLY I FEEL THAT FOR PASTORS BECAUSE I
  • 00:24:51.140 --> 00:24:53.270
  • THINK PASTORS, 1700 PASTORS ARE LEAVING THE
  • 00:24:53.290 --> 00:24:56.190
  • MINISTRY EVERY MONTH IN THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:24:56.210 --> 00:24:59.090
  • A LOT OF IT IS BECAUSE I THINK WHEN YOU LOOK AT
  • 00:24:59.110 --> 00:25:02.160
  • THINGS LIKE, WHETHER IT'S DIVORCE,
  • 00:25:02.180 --> 00:25:04.040
  • OR WHETHER FAILURE, OR THE STATISTICS DO NOT
  • 00:25:04.060 --> 00:25:09.140
  • MATCH WHAT YOUR EFFORTS HAVE PUT FORTH,
  • 00:25:09.160 --> 00:25:11.260
  • I THINK PEOPLE ARE BAILING.
  • 00:25:11.280 --> 00:25:13.170
  • THEY'RE LOSING THAT EXPECTATION.
  • 00:25:13.190 --> 00:25:14.280
  • WHEN YOU SPOKE THAT, THERE'S NO DOUBT IN MY
  • 00:25:15.000 --> 00:25:17.260
  • MIND THAT THERE WERE DOZENS,
  • 00:25:17.280 --> 00:25:19.230
  • MAYBE HUNDREDS OF THOSE 1700 THAT HAVE ALREADY
  • 00:25:19.250 --> 00:25:22.290
  • FIGURED OUT HOW THEY'RE WALKING AWAY FROM THE
  • 00:25:23.010 --> 00:25:25.020
  • MINISTRY THAT'S GONNA BE REVERSED,
  • 00:25:25.040 --> 00:25:27.010
  • THAT'S GONNA BE CHANGED.
  • 00:25:27.030 --> 00:25:28.150
  • THAT MAY BE THE REASON WHY YOU CAME BY THIS
  • 00:25:28.170 --> 00:25:32.150
  • CHANNEL STARTING OUT A LITTLE CYNICAL,
  • 00:25:32.170 --> 00:25:35.130
  • AND NOW GOD HAS GOT YOUR NUMBER SAYING LOOK,
  • 00:25:35.150 --> 00:25:38.190
  • DON'T LOOK AT YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES TODAY.
  • 00:25:38.210 --> 00:25:42.230
  • HOLD ON TO THAT EXPECTATION.
  • 00:25:42.250 --> 00:25:45.120
  • SARAH, I'M CONSTANTLY AMAZED HOW GOD HAS
  • 00:25:45.140 --> 00:25:50.250
  • HONORED TO USE YOU THROUGH THIS JOURNEY.
  • 00:25:50.270 --> 00:25:54.020
  • I WANT THOSE OF YOU THAT MAY NOT BE AWARE OF SARAH

  • AND THE IMPACT THAT SHE'S HAVING ON BOTH THE
  • 00:25:58.090 --> 00:26:02.060
  • CHURCHES THAT SHE'S INVOLVED WITH.
  • 00:26:02.080 --> 00:26:04.040
  • I CALL IT ONE MOVEMENT, TWO LOCATIONS BECAUSE
  • 00:26:04.060 --> 00:26:06.170
  • IT'S MORE THAN A CHURCH.
  • 00:26:06.190 --> 00:26:08.180
  • BUT CHECK THIS OUT.
  • 00:26:08.200 --> 00:26:10.070
  • I WANT YOU TO SEE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT GOD
  • 00:26:10.090 --> 00:26:12.100

  • 00:27:19.030 --> 00:27:22.070
  • WE'RE BIG FANS. I JUST LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:27:22.090 --> 00:27:26.280
  • I THINK YOUR STYLE OF PREACHING AND THE WAY
  • 00:27:27.000 --> 00:27:29.130
  • THAT YOU ARTICULATE IS SO POWERFUL.
  • 00:27:29.150 --> 00:27:32.270
  • AND THOSE THAT KNOW YOUR FATHER, OF COURSE,
  • 00:27:32.290 --> 00:27:35.200
  • I WOULD CONSIDER HIM ONE OF THE GREATEST PREACHERS
  • 00:27:35.220 --> 00:27:37.190
  • OF OUR GENERATION.
  • 00:27:37.210 --> 00:27:39.240
  • BUT THOSE THAT HAVE NOT REALLY MET OR BEEN WITH
  • 00:27:39.260 --> 00:27:44.060
  • YOUR MOTHER, YOUR MOTHER IS SO CLASSY AND SO FUNNY.
  • 00:27:44.080 --> 00:27:48.080
  • - SARAH JAKES ROBERTS: YES.
  • 00:27:48.100 --> 00:27:49.230
  • - PHIL MUNSEY: AND YOU JUST SEE HER ON THAT PLATFORM,
  • 00:27:49.250 --> 00:27:53.010
  • AND SHE JUST LOOKS SO PRETTY AND SO CLASSY,
  • 00:27:53.030 --> 00:27:57.020
  • BUT SHE'S GOT A PERSONALITY AND A HUMOR
  • 00:27:57.040 --> 00:28:00.110
  • THAT IS-- KIND OF STUNNED ME THE FIRST TIME THAT I
  • 00:28:00.130 --> 00:28:03.260
  • WAS AROUND HER. WHAT? AND YOU CARRY THAT.
  • 00:28:03.280 --> 00:28:06.160
  • AND IT SEEMS TO ME, PT AND SARAH,
  • 00:28:06.180 --> 00:28:10.240
  • THAT GOD IS OPENING UP FAVOR FOR WOMEN.
  • 00:28:10.260 --> 00:28:14.170
  • UNFORTUNATELY, THE WORLD HAD TO-- WE SEE THAT,
  • 00:28:14.190 --> 00:28:20.060
  • I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE GOD JUDGES WHAT HE LOVES,
  • 00:28:20.080 --> 00:28:24.000
  • AND IT'S CLEAR THAT WOMEN HAVE BEEN TAKEN ADVANTAGE
  • 00:28:24.020 --> 00:28:26.210
  • OF IN THE WORKPLACE, TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF IN
  • 00:28:26.230 --> 00:28:30.030
  • PLACES OF THE ARTS LIKE HOLLYWOOD,
  • 00:28:30.050 --> 00:28:32.160
  • AND GOD HAS COME IN AND JUST SHOOK.
  • 00:28:32.180 --> 00:28:35.120
  • AND NOW WE'RE SEEING WOMEN LIKE YOU RISE UP
  • 00:28:35.140 --> 00:28:39.060
  • WITH A VOICE THAT'S NOT JUST SPEAKING TO WOMEN
  • 00:28:39.080 --> 00:28:42.020
  • BUT TO ALL OF US.
  • 00:28:42.040 --> 00:28:43.180
  • AND I WANT YOU TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO TALK
  • 00:28:43.200 --> 00:28:47.010
  • ABOUT YOUR LIFE FOR A MOMENT BECAUSE YOU AND I
  • 00:28:47.030 --> 00:28:49.110
  • WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW MEN NEED TO HANDLE THIS
  • 00:28:49.130 --> 00:28:53.250
  • SEASON WHERE GOD IS SAYING I'M GONNA MAKE UP
  • 00:28:53.270 --> 00:28:56.170
  • SOME STUFF THAT HAS BEEN UNJUST,
  • 00:28:56.190 --> 00:28:59.040
  • UNFAIR AND I'M GONNA BLESS MY DAUGHTERS
  • 00:28:59.060 --> 00:29:01.070
  • IN THIS SEASON.
  • 00:29:01.090 --> 00:29:03.230
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:29:03.250 --> 00:29:04.230
  • - WE'RE SEEING THAT, AREN'T WE.
  • 00:29:04.250 --> 00:29:05.250
  • - WE ARE SEEING IT.
  • 00:29:05.270 --> 00:29:07.060
  • ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO, THE LORD GAVE ME A WORD AND
  • 00:29:07.080 --> 00:29:09.080
  • IT WAS THE AGE OF THE WOMAN.
  • 00:29:09.100 --> 00:29:11.020
  • AND IT WAS CRAZY BECAUSE WHY WOULD GOD GIVE A MAN
  • 00:29:11.040 --> 00:29:13.160
  • A WORD THAT BASICALLY WAS SAYING THAT GOD WAS GONNA
  • 00:29:13.180 --> 00:29:18.130
  • USE WOMEN IN AN UNPRECEDENTED WAY.
  • 00:29:18.150 --> 00:29:20.200
  • I KNEW IT WAS GOD.
  • 00:29:20.220 --> 00:29:21.280
  • I REMEMBER TREMBLING AS I PREACHED THAT MESSAGE,
  • 00:29:22.000 --> 00:29:24.070
  • NOT REALIZING THAT I WOULD ULTIMATELY BE
  • 00:29:24.090 --> 00:29:26.080
  • MARRIED TO A WORLD SHAKER IN SARAH.
  • 00:29:26.100 --> 00:29:30.260
  • I THINK THAT THE MOST PERSECUTED PEOPLE GROUP
  • 00:29:30.280 --> 00:29:33.280
  • ON THE PLANET IS THE WOMAN.
  • 00:29:34.000 --> 00:29:36.130
  • FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.
  • 00:29:36.150 --> 00:29:38.030
  • AND SARAH HAS A REVELATION ON THAT THAT
  • 00:29:38.050 --> 00:29:39.180
  • I WANT HER TO SHARE AS IT RELATES TO EVE.
  • 00:29:39.200 --> 00:29:41.260
  • BUT MOST MEN, IF WE'RE HONEST IN THE KINGDOM,
  • 00:29:41.280 --> 00:29:45.280
  • WE WANT TO BE JOSEPH, RIGHT?
  • 00:29:46.000 --> 00:29:47.290
  • BUT WE WANT TO BE THE JOSEPH WHO WAS THE KING
  • 00:29:48.010 --> 00:29:51.010
  • IN EGYPT, SECOND OR SECOND TO PHARAOH IN EGYPT.
  • 00:29:51.030 --> 00:29:53.200
  • WE WANT TO BE JOSEPH THE BUSINESSMAN,
  • 00:29:53.220 --> 00:29:55.270
  • JOSEPH THE PROSPEROUS ONE.
  • 00:29:55.290 --> 00:29:58.040
  • BUT I THINK THERE'S ANOTHER JOSEPH THAT WE
  • 00:29:58.060 --> 00:30:00.180
  • FAIL TO LOOK AT, AND IT WAS THE JOSEPH WHO
  • 00:30:00.200 --> 00:30:04.110
  • PROVIDED AN ENVIRONMENT FOR MARY TO
  • 00:30:04.130 --> 00:30:06.060
  • BIRTH THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:30:06.080 --> 00:30:09.030
  • SO THE CHALLENGE FOR US AS MEN IS TO BE WHOLE
  • 00:30:09.050 --> 00:30:13.020
  • ENOUGH AND SECURE ENOUGH IN OUR PURPOSE AND OUR
  • 00:30:13.040 --> 00:30:16.040
  • ROLE THAT WE MIGHT BECOME JOSEPHS,
  • 00:30:16.060 --> 00:30:18.250
  • THAT WE MIGHT ENCOURAGE OUR SISTERS THAT GOD IS
  • 00:30:18.270 --> 00:30:21.200
  • RAISING UP, THAT WE MIGHT CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT
  • 00:30:21.220 --> 00:30:24.140
  • THAT WE MIGHT NOT COMPETE BUT COMPLIMENT AND
  • 00:30:24.160 --> 00:30:27.120
  • SUPPORT AND LIFT THEM UP, BECAUSE IF THEY BIRTH
  • 00:30:27.140 --> 00:30:30.070
  • WHAT GOD HAS PLACED ON THE INSIDE OF THEM,
  • 00:30:30.090 --> 00:30:32.170
  • JUST LIKE THE VIRGIN MARY, WE'RE GONNA SEE THE
  • 00:30:32.190 --> 00:30:35.240
  • EARTH SHAKE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:30:35.260 --> 00:30:38.220
  • WE'RE GONNA SEE THINGS-- LOOK,
  • 00:30:38.240 --> 00:30:40.140
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE WOMAN-- I WANT TO LET HER
  • 00:30:40.160 --> 00:30:44.240
  • PREACH IT BECAUSE NO ONE PREACHES IT LIKE HER.
  • 00:30:44.260 --> 00:30:47.020
  • IN FACT, WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY
  • 00:30:47.040 --> 00:30:48.010
  • ABOUT THE WOMAN, HONEY?
  • 00:30:48.030 --> 00:30:49.270
  • - IN GENESIS 3:15, AFTER EVE HAS EATEN FROM THE
  • 00:30:49.290 --> 00:30:53.280
  • FORBIDDEN FRUIT, GOD TELLS THE SERPENT THAT
  • 00:30:54.000 --> 00:30:57.050
  • THE SEED OF THE WOMAN IS GONNA CRUSH HIS HEAD,
  • 00:30:57.070 --> 00:31:00.040
  • BUT HE ALSO SAYS THAT THE SEED OF THE SERPENT IS
  • 00:31:00.060 --> 00:31:02.290
  • GONNA BRUISE HER HEEL.
  • 00:31:03.010 --> 00:31:04.240
  • SO I HAVE BEEN REALLY REALLY HELPING SO MANY
  • 00:31:04.260 --> 00:31:08.030
  • WOMEN UNDERSTAND THAT JUST BECAUSE YOUR HEEL
  • 00:31:08.050 --> 00:31:09.270
  • HAS BEEN BRUISED BY DIVORCE,
  • 00:31:09.290 --> 00:31:12.040
  • BY TEEN PREGNANCY DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU CAN'T
  • 00:31:12.060 --> 00:31:14.100
  • CRUSH THE SERPENT'S HEAD.
  • 00:31:14.120 --> 00:31:15.290
  • SPECIFICALLY, I SAID BRUISED HEEL STILL
  • 00:31:16.010 --> 00:31:18.190
  • CRUSHED SERPENT'S HEAD.
  • 00:31:18.210 --> 00:31:19.290
  • SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, GIRL,
  • 00:31:20.010 --> 00:31:21.190
  • BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THAT BRUISED HEEL,
  • 00:31:21.210 --> 00:31:23.220
  • NO MATTER WHAT IT IS, DIVORCE, MISCARRIAGES,
  • 00:31:23.240 --> 00:31:26.240
  • WHATEVER YOU'VE GONE THROUGH,
  • 00:31:26.260 --> 00:31:28.140
  • THAT BRUISED HEEL STILL CRUSHES SERPENTS HEADS,
  • 00:31:28.160 --> 00:31:30.260
  • AND HOW DO I KNOW?
  • 00:31:30.280 --> 00:31:31.290
  • BECAUSE I GET UP ON THE STAGE,
  • 00:31:32.010 --> 00:31:33.150
  • I HOLD MY MICROPHONE WITH MY TEEN PREGNANCY,
  • 00:31:33.170 --> 00:31:35.270
  • WITH MY DIVORCE, WITH MY INSECURITIES,
  • 00:31:35.290 --> 00:31:37.270
  • WITH MY FEARS, AND I TELL THE DEVIL YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:31:37.290 --> 00:31:40.000
  • YOU PICKED ON THE RIGHT ONE BECAUSE THIS HEEL IS
  • 00:31:40.020 --> 00:31:42.150
  • GONNA PICK UP MY FOOT, AND I'M GONNA CRUSH IT
  • 00:31:42.170 --> 00:31:44.210
  • OVER YOUR HEAD EVERY SINGLE CHANCE I GET.
  • 00:31:44.230 --> 00:31:47.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:31:47.020 --> 00:31:51.110
  • - SO THERE, RIGHT THERE IN GENESIS FROM THE VERY
  • 00:31:51.130 --> 00:31:54.020
  • BEGINNING IS THE PRONOUNCEMENT THAT
  • 00:31:54.040 --> 00:31:56.200
  • THROUGH THE WOMAN, THE SERPENT WOULD BE DEFEATED.
  • 00:31:56.220 --> 00:32:01.040
  • NO WONDER SHE'S THE MOST PERSECUTED PEOPLE GROUP
  • 00:32:01.060 --> 00:32:03.090
  • ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:32:03.110 --> 00:32:04.180
  • NO MATTER ANY PLACE YOU GO TO IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:32:04.200 --> 00:32:06.090
  • THE WOMAN IS THE MOST PERSECUTED.
  • 00:32:06.110 --> 00:32:08.290
  • BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, TIME'S UP, ME TOO,
  • 00:32:09.010 --> 00:32:12.090
  • AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU WANT TO SAY.
  • 00:32:12.110 --> 00:32:13.230
  • IT IS THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN,
  • 00:32:13.250 --> 00:32:15.160
  • AND I'M ROLLING WITH IT.
  • 00:32:15.180 --> 00:32:17.270
  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:32:17.290 --> 00:32:19.050
  • I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT, I THINK WE SEE ALL THESE
  • 00:32:19.070 --> 00:32:22.170
  • MOVEMENTS, EVEN AMONG SOME OF OUR TEACHING TEAM
  • 00:32:22.190 --> 00:32:26.150
  • HERE AT TBN, CHRISTINE CAINE, AND JOYCE MEYER,
  • 00:32:26.170 --> 00:32:29.270
  • AND BETH MOORE, ALL OF THESE WOMEN.
  • 00:32:29.290 --> 00:32:32.030
  • AND ACTUALLY, I'M GONNA ENCOURAGE YOU,
  • 00:32:32.050 --> 00:32:34.070
  • WE NEED TO HAVE A CONFERENCE FOR MEN ON
  • 00:32:34.090 --> 00:32:37.220
  • HOW TO HANDLE THESE POWERFUL STRONG WOMEN.
  • 00:32:37.240 --> 00:32:41.050
  • - I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:32:41.070 --> 00:32:43.000
  • I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:32:43.020 --> 00:32:44.220
  • - I THINK THAT AS WOMEN THOUGH,
  • 00:32:44.240 --> 00:32:46.140
  • I THINK AS WE'RE REALLY LEARNING HOW TO NAVIGATE
  • 00:32:46.160 --> 00:32:48.280
  • THIS POWER AND THIS PLATFORM,
  • 00:32:49.000 --> 00:32:50.210
  • THAT ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE TO CONSTANTLY KEEP
  • 00:32:50.230 --> 00:32:53.060
  • AT THE FOREFRONT OF OUR MIND IS THAT OUR POWER IS
  • 00:32:53.080 --> 00:32:55.170
  • NOT MEANT TO CRUSH THE MAN. IT TOO WAS MEANT
  • 00:32:55.190 --> 00:32:58.040
  • TO COMPLIMENT AND SUPPORT THE MAN.
  • 00:32:58.060 --> 00:33:00.030
  • SO JUST BECAUSE I FINALLY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO
  • 00:33:00.050 --> 00:33:02.130
  • SPEAK UP DOESN'T MEAN I WANT TO CRUSH MY PARTNER.
  • 00:33:02.150 --> 00:33:04.250
  • AT THE END OF THE DAY, I NEED HIM TO WIN BECAUSE
  • 00:33:04.270 --> 00:33:06.180
  • WE ARE IN PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:33:06.200 --> 00:33:08.020
  • AND AT THE END OF THE DAY,
  • 00:33:08.040 --> 00:33:09.080
  • OUTSIDE OF THE LIGHTS, THE CAMERA,
  • 00:33:09.100 --> 00:33:10.270
  • AND THE CHURCH, WE HAVE CHILDREN AND
  • 00:33:10.290 --> 00:33:12.120
  • FAMILIES TO RAISE.
  • 00:33:12.140 --> 00:33:13.190
  • AND I DON'T WANT TO BE SO POWERFUL AS A WOMAN THAT
  • 00:33:13.210 --> 00:33:15.200
  • I DON'T TEACH MY SONS HOW A WOMAN STILL NEEDS TO BE
  • 00:33:15.220 --> 00:33:18.120
  • HELD AND SUPPORTED AND TO REALLY LIVE IN THAT
  • 00:33:18.140 --> 00:33:21.120
  • ENVIRONMENT THAT HER HUSBAND CREATES.
  • 00:33:21.140 --> 00:33:23.000
  • SO THERE IS A PLACE FOR--
  • 00:33:23.020 --> 00:33:25.160
  • - AND IT DOES NOT TAKE VALUE AWAY FROM THE MAN.
  • 00:33:25.180 --> 00:33:28.080
  • THAT'S A PERVERSION IN THE MOVEMENT WHERE
  • 00:33:28.100 --> 00:33:30.270
  • "WE DON'T NEED NO MAN!"
  • 00:33:30.290 --> 00:33:32.160
  • SHUT UP. BECAUSE THAT'S STUPID. THAT'S STUPID.
  • 00:33:32.180 --> 00:33:37.050
  • AND I'M NOT SAYING-- CAN I SAY STUPID ON TBN?
  • 00:33:37.070 --> 00:33:40.040
  • THAT'S STUPID. BUT BECAUSE I'M NOT PROMOTING
  • 00:33:40.060 --> 00:33:46.060
  • BEING CO-DEPENDENT. I'M NOT SAYING THAT.
  • 00:33:46.080 --> 00:33:47.250
  • BUT THE MAN, HIS JOB, HE IS VALIDATED,
  • 00:33:47.270 --> 00:33:53.230
  • HE'S A PART OF THIS MOVEMENT, RIGHT,
  • 00:33:53.250 --> 00:33:55.170
  • BUT HE SHOULD PRAY PRAYERFULLY AND OFFER
  • 00:33:55.190 --> 00:33:58.170
  • WISDOM TO HER, OFFER COVERING TO IT.
  • 00:33:58.190 --> 00:34:01.050
  • JOSEPH WASN'T A NOBODY.
  • 00:34:01.070 --> 00:34:03.130
  • HE WAS CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:34:03.150 --> 00:34:05.060
  • MARY COULDN'T HAVE DONE WHAT SHE DID.
  • 00:34:05.080 --> 00:34:07.170
  • SHE COULDN'T HAVE BIRTHED JESUS WITHOUT JOSEPH
  • 00:34:07.190 --> 00:34:09.170
  • COVERING HER, COVERING HER REPUTATION, RIGHT,
  • 00:34:09.190 --> 00:34:12.210
  • COVERING HER FINANCIALLY AND OTHER WAYS.
  • 00:34:12.230 --> 00:34:15.140
  • SO THIS IS NOT--PRO WOMEN DOES NOT MEAN ANTI MAN.
  • 00:34:15.160 --> 00:34:20.040
  • WOMEN EVOLVING OR WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT MOVEMENT
  • 00:34:20.060 --> 00:34:23.160
  • DOES NOT MEAN THE EMASCULATION OF MEN.
  • 00:34:23.180 --> 00:34:26.290
  • AND WE HAVE TO HAVE A CLEAR AND CONCISE
  • 00:34:27.010 --> 00:34:32.160
  • CONVERSATION SO WE WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR ROLES
  • 00:34:32.180 --> 00:34:35.230
  • ARE AS MEN IN THE CONTEXT OF THIS MOVEMENT.
  • 00:34:35.250 --> 00:34:39.200
  • I BELIEVE IT IS SIMPLE.
  • 00:34:39.220 --> 00:34:41.030
  • IT IS TO COVER, IT IS TO SUPPORT,
  • 00:34:41.050 --> 00:34:43.170
  • IT IS TO PROTECT, IT IS TO PRAY INTO.
  • 00:34:43.190 --> 00:34:45.220
  • WE ARE THE MIDWIVES TO THIS MOVEMENT.
  • 00:34:45.240 --> 00:34:48.110
  • - WOW.
  • 00:34:48.130 --> 00:34:49.220
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:34:49.240 --> 00:34:51.190
  • IT IS AND IT'S FOR REAL.
  • 00:34:51.210 --> 00:34:53.290
  • JEANNIE AND I FOUNDED A CHURCH,
  • 00:34:54.010 --> 00:34:56.150
  • AND ACTUALLY THIS IS OUR 40TH YEAR OF MARRIAGE,
  • 00:34:56.170 --> 00:35:00.260
  • AND SHE HAD A CALL OF GOD ON HER LIFE THAT
  • 00:35:00.280 --> 00:35:03.000
  • I FOUGHT FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:35:03.020 --> 00:35:05.020
  • AND SHE WOULD-- YOU KNOW, I WOULD SAY YOU'RE CALLED
  • 00:35:05.040 --> 00:35:07.110
  • BECAUSE YOU MARRIED ME.
  • 00:35:07.130 --> 00:35:09.120
  • AND I'M A LITTLE ASHAMED OF THAT NOW,
  • 00:35:09.140 --> 00:35:11.040
  • BUT THAT'S ALL UNDER THE BLOOD.
  • 00:35:11.060 --> 00:35:14.010
  • AND I REMEMBER, STUPID IS A GOOD WORD.
  • 00:35:14.030 --> 00:35:17.230
  • BUT I REMEMBER SAYING TO HER, OKAY,
  • 00:35:17.250 --> 00:35:19.160
  • SO WHAT HAPPENS IF I DIE?
  • 00:35:19.180 --> 00:35:21.150
  • IF I DIE, WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU?
  • 00:35:21.170 --> 00:35:23.060
  • AND AT THAT POINT, IT WAS GONNA BE LIKE WELL I
  • 00:35:23.080 --> 00:35:25.010
  • WOULD BE DEVASTATED, AND I WOULD BE OUT OF THE
  • 00:35:25.030 --> 00:35:26.270
  • MINISTRY. AND SHE SAID I WOULD CONTINUE MY MINISTRY.
  • 00:35:26.290 --> 00:35:30.190
  • AND BECAUSE GOD CALLED ME BEFORE I EVER MARRIED
  • 00:35:30.210 --> 00:35:33.070
  • YOU. AND THAT'S WHEN I KNEW OKAY,
  • 00:35:33.090 --> 00:35:36.200
  • THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER'S RELIGION.
  • 00:35:36.220 --> 00:35:39.290
  • BUT IT IS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:35:40.010 --> 00:35:42.100
  • AND YOU KIND OF BRUSHED OVER SOMETHING I THINK IS
  • 00:35:42.120 --> 00:35:44.060
  • IMPORTANT THAT I WANT TO DRILL DOWN ON FOR A
  • 00:35:44.080 --> 00:35:46.000
  • COUPLE OF MINUTES AND THAT IS, YEAH,
  • 00:35:46.020 --> 00:35:47.260
  • HOW DO YOU WRITE BOOKS, CONFERENCE SPEAKER,
  • 00:35:47.280 --> 00:35:50.000
  • PASTOR A CHURCH, AND AT THE SAME TIME FIND
  • 00:35:50.020 --> 00:35:55.040
  • BALANCE? BOTH AS A MAN, A WOMAN, KEEPING YOUR
  • 00:35:55.060 --> 00:35:58.280
  • MARRIAGE TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME,
  • 00:35:59.000 --> 00:36:01.120
  • MANAGING FROM TWO YEAR OLD TO 21 YEAR OLD.
  • 00:36:01.140 --> 00:36:04.220
  • TALK TO US ABOUT THE CHALLENGES AND HOW YOU
  • 00:36:04.240 --> 00:36:08.080
  • GUYS HAVE FOUND GRACE IN THAT WHOLE JOURNEY.
  • 00:36:08.100 --> 00:36:13.130
  • - WELL, WHEN TOURE' AND I GOT MARRIED, ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:36:13.150 --> 00:36:16.100
  • THAT WAS IMPORTANT TO ME, ESPECIALLY AS A SINGLE MOM
  • 00:36:16.120 --> 00:36:19.000
  • BRINGING KIDS INTO A RELATIONSHIP, WAS THAT I
  • 00:36:19.020 --> 00:36:21.150
  • MARRIED SOMEONE WHO SAW ME PROPERLY BECAUSE I KNEW THAT
  • 00:36:21.170 --> 00:36:24.080
  • IF HE SAW ME PROPERLY THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP
  • 00:36:24.100 --> 00:36:27.000
  • FACILITATE EVERYTHING ATTACHED TO MY NAME, PURPOSE AND
  • 00:36:27.020 --> 00:36:30.010
  • CALLING INCLUDED.
  • 00:36:30.030 --> 00:36:31.270
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO GET MARRIED BECAUSE I FELT LIKE
  • 00:36:31.290 --> 00:36:33.120
  • IT WAS A PRIZE.
  • 00:36:33.140 --> 00:36:35.040
  • I WANTED TO GET MARRIED BECAUSE I FELT LIKE HE
  • 00:36:35.060 --> 00:36:37.280
  • UNDERSTOOD I WAS A MISSION FIELD, AND HE WAS A MISSION
  • 00:36:38.000 --> 00:36:39.260
  • FIELD, AND WE WANTED TO BRING OUT THE BEST AND GOD'S GLORY
  • 00:36:39.280 --> 00:36:41.080
  • IN ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:36:41.100 --> 00:36:42.270
  • SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS HELPED US AS WE BLEND
  • 00:36:42.290 --> 00:36:44.180
  • OUR FAMILY AND BALANCE OUR LIVES -- OUR CHURCHES, OUR
  • 00:36:44.200 --> 00:36:47.040
  • BLENDED FAMILIES, OKAY, LIKE EVERYTHING IF OUR LIFE IS
  • 00:36:47.060 --> 00:36:49.180
  • BLENDED -- IS THAT HE SEES ME PROPERLY, AND I SEE HIM
  • 00:36:49.200 --> 00:36:53.050
  • PROPERLY, AND BECAUSE I SEE HIM PROPERLY, WHENEVER I
  • 00:36:53.070 --> 00:36:56.000
  • NOTICE THAT HE NEEDS DOWN TIME, OR WHENEVER I NOTICE
  • 00:36:56.020 --> 00:36:59.000
  • THAT THE CHURCH IN L.A.
  • 00:36:59.020 --> 00:37:00.260
  • MAY NEED SOMETHING, WE'RE ABLE TO LOOK AT ONE ANOTHER'S LIVES
  • 00:37:00.280 --> 00:37:02.200
  • AND SAY, BABE, THIS IS WHERE YOU COULD STRETCH YOURSELF.
  • 00:37:02.220 --> 00:37:04.270
  • THIS IS DOING WELL.
  • 00:37:04.290 --> 00:37:07.020
  • SO I THINK WE ADDED PERSPECTIVE TO ONE ANOTHER'S
  • 00:37:07.040 --> 00:37:09.290
  • LIVES THROUGH OUR MARRIAGE THAT HAS HELPED
  • 00:37:10.010 --> 00:37:11.240
  • TO BALANCE THINGS OUT.
  • 00:37:11.260 --> 00:37:13.110
  • - YEAH, SO TRUE.
  • 00:37:13.130 --> 00:37:15.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:37:15.090 --> 00:37:18.050
  • AND WE KNOW TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS REQUIRED, AND
  • 00:37:18.070 --> 00:37:22.160
  • MUCH IS REQUIRED FROM THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN GIVEN MUCH.
  • 00:37:22.180 --> 00:37:25.140
  • SO WE ARE VERY, VERY INTENTIONAL ABOUT CHECKING ON
  • 00:37:25.160 --> 00:37:28.120
  • WHERE THINGS ARE, CHECKING ON WHERE WE ARE
  • 00:37:28.140 --> 00:37:32.120
  • IN OUR RELATIONSHIP. DO WE NEED TIME TOGETHER?
  • 00:37:32.140 --> 00:37:34.110
  • WE PRIORITIZE THINGS.
  • 00:37:34.130 --> 00:37:36.060
  • A LOT COMES AT US, BUT WE HAVE REALLY A CHECK LIST ON WHETHER
  • 00:37:36.080 --> 00:37:40.050
  • OR NOT WE DO IT, AND WE HAVE FOUR QUADRANTS THAT HELP US TO
  • 00:37:40.070 --> 00:37:44.070
  • DEFINE WHAT TO TAKE AND WHAT NOT TO TAKE, AND IF WE FIND
  • 00:37:44.090 --> 00:37:47.280
  • OURSELVES OUT OF BALANCE, WE HAVE NO PROBLEM
  • 00:37:48.000 --> 00:37:50.060
  • CALLING IN SICK TO WORK.
  • 00:37:50.080 --> 00:37:52.040
  • - ON A SUNDAY. - ON A SUNDAY.
  • 00:37:52.060 --> 00:37:54.090
  • - HE'S CALLED IN AND SAID, "WE'RE HAVING FAMILY DAY."
  • 00:37:54.110 --> 00:37:56.100
  • - WE'RE HAVING FAMILY DAY.
  • 00:37:56.120 --> 00:37:58.030
  • TRAVELING WITH THE BOOK, AND THIS WAS ACTUALLY JUST LESS
  • 00:37:58.050 --> 00:38:00.140
  • THAN A MONTH AGO, AND WE JUST FELT THE TENSION FROM OUR KIDS
  • 00:38:00.160 --> 00:38:04.270
  • IN THE HOUSE, AND WE FELT LIKE WE NEEDED SUNDAY OFF,
  • 00:38:04.290 --> 00:38:07.110
  • AND I HAVE GREAT STAFF ON BOTH CAMPUSES.
  • 00:38:07.130 --> 00:38:09.190
  • AND I SAID, GUYS, WE'RE TAKING THIS SUNDAY OFF.
  • 00:38:09.210 --> 00:38:11.190
  • WE'RE GOING TO MAKE IT A FAMILY DAY, RUN ON
  • 00:38:11.210 --> 00:38:13.200
  • WITH IT, AND WE DID THAT.
  • 00:38:13.220 --> 00:38:15.290
  • SO BALANCE IS EVERYTHING, AND MAKING CERTAIN THAT WHAT'S
  • 00:38:16.010 --> 00:38:18.290
  • MOST IMPORTANT, WHICH FOR US IS OUR INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:38:19.010 --> 00:38:21.190
  • RELATIONSHIPS WITH GOD, OUR MARRIAGE AND OUR FAMILY DOING
  • 00:38:21.210 --> 00:38:24.100
  • WELL, AND THEN WE GET DOWN TO OUR SPIRITUAL FAMILY, AND I
  • 00:38:24.120 --> 00:38:26.240
  • THINK HAVING A GREAT TEAM TO HELP PROTECT
  • 00:38:26.260 --> 00:38:28.290
  • THAT IS IMPORTANT, AS WELL.
  • 00:38:29.010 --> 00:38:30.110
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:38:30.130 --> 00:38:31.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:38:31.270 --> 00:38:34.030
  • - WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENT FOR
  • 00:38:34.050 --> 00:38:38.190
  • -- WE GOT A PARALLEL GOING OF A BLENDED FAMILY
  • 00:38:38.210 --> 00:38:40.140
  • AND A BLENDED VISION.
  • 00:38:40.160 --> 00:38:43.170
  • WHAT WOULD BE THE OVERALL ATTITUDE THAT SOMEONE NEEDS TO
  • 00:38:43.190 --> 00:38:47.210
  • BE ABLE TO EMBRACE TO WATCH GOD TAKE TWO
  • 00:38:47.230 --> 00:38:51.010
  • PATHS AND MAKE THEM ONE?
  • 00:38:51.030 --> 00:38:53.060
  • - WOW.
  • 00:38:53.080 --> 00:38:54.260
  • - I THINK FAITH FIRST, FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:38:54.280 --> 00:38:58.230
  • BROUGHT THESE TWO UNIVERSES TOGETHER, OKAY?
  • 00:38:58.250 --> 00:39:03.010
  • SO, GOD, IF YOU BROUGHT THESE TWO UNIVERSES TOGETHER, THEN
  • 00:39:03.030 --> 00:39:06.060
  • YOU HAVE A STRATEGIC PLAN AS TO HOW TO INTEGRATE THEM IF WE
  • 00:39:06.080 --> 00:39:10.130
  • GET OURSELVES OUT OF THE WAY.
  • 00:39:10.150 --> 00:39:12.160
  • I THINK HUMILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:39:12.180 --> 00:39:15.060
  • THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT ESTEEMING OTHERS MORE HIGHLY
  • 00:39:15.080 --> 00:39:18.090
  • THAN YOURSELVES, AND COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:39:18.110 --> 00:39:21.020
  • I KNOW YOU ASKED FOR TWO, BUT I THINK I GAVE YOU THREE,
  • 00:39:21.040 --> 00:39:23.050
  • BUT COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:39:23.070 --> 00:39:24.270
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT HOW WE'RE FEELING.
  • 00:39:24.290 --> 00:39:26.190
  • I WON'T BIRTH A MINISTRY WITHOUT HER APPROVAL.
  • 00:39:26.210 --> 00:39:30.070
  • WOMAN EVOLVED, THIS INCREDIBLE CONFERENCE THAT WE'RE DOING IN
  • 00:39:30.090 --> 00:39:32.210
  • DENVER IN JULY, IT'S HER FACE, BUT IT'S US BEHIND THE SCENES.
  • 00:39:32.230 --> 00:39:38.120
  • AND SO YOU GET TWO -- EVEN WHEN YOU'RE GETTING ONE,
  • 00:39:38.140 --> 00:39:41.070
  • YOU'RE REALLY GETTING TWO.
  • 00:39:41.090 --> 00:39:43.060
  • YOU'RE GETTING BOTH OF US, SO I THINK COMMUNICATION,
  • 00:39:43.080 --> 00:39:45.080
  • HUMILITY, AND FAITH, TRUSTING THAT IF GOD BROUGHT THESE TWO
  • 00:39:45.100 --> 00:39:48.270
  • UNIVERSES TOGETHER, HE'LL GIVE YOU THE WISDOM AS TO HOW TO
  • 00:39:48.290 --> 00:39:51.190
  • STEWARD THE INTEGRATION.
  • 00:39:51.210 --> 00:39:53.120
  • - I THINK THAT'S POWERFUL. YOU'RE STANDING BEHIND HIM.
  • 00:39:53.140 --> 00:39:55.260
  • IS THAT UNIQUE, OR DOES THAT HAPPEN EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE?
  • 00:39:55.280 --> 00:39:58.060
  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING BEHIND HIM?
  • 00:39:58.080 --> 00:40:00.010
  • - I'M PRAYING FOR HIM.
  • 00:40:00.030 --> 00:40:03.070
  • JUST BECAUSE I HAVE A PLATFORM DOESN'T MEAN THAT EVERY TIME
  • 00:40:03.090 --> 00:40:06.090
  • HE'S ON STAGE THAT I NEED TO BE ON THE STAGE.
  • 00:40:06.110 --> 00:40:08.100
  • I FEEL LIKE AS HIS WIFE, THAT I'M THERE TO PRAY AND PUSH
  • 00:40:08.120 --> 00:40:11.260
  • BACK ANY DARKNESS THAT IS THERE, KEEP HIS
  • 00:40:11.280 --> 00:40:13.160
  • MESSAGE FROM COMING FORTH.
  • 00:40:13.180 --> 00:40:15.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:40:15.030 --> 00:40:17.100
  • FOR ME, BEING BEHIND THE SCENES DOESN'T FEEL
  • 00:40:17.120 --> 00:40:19.120
  • LIKE ODD OR STRANGE.
  • 00:40:19.140 --> 00:40:21.180
  • IT FEELS LIKE THE PERFECT PLACE FOR ME TO STAND AND
  • 00:40:21.200 --> 00:40:23.150
  • COVER AND WATCH HIS BACK, AND HE DOES THE SAME THING FOR ME.
  • 00:40:23.170 --> 00:40:25.200
  • I CAN HEAR HIM, WHEN I'M SPEAKING -- I CAN BE IN AN
  • 00:40:25.220 --> 00:40:28.080
  • AUDITORIUM, IN AN ARENA FILLED WITH PEOPLE, AND I CAN HEAR
  • 00:40:28.100 --> 00:40:29.290
  • HIM SAYING, "GO, BABY. PUSH, BABY. GET IT, BABY."
  • 00:40:30.010 --> 00:40:32.290
  • - YEAH, YEAH, I LOVE THAT, AND I THINK
  • 00:40:33.010 --> 00:40:36.080
  • THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO BRINGING
  • 00:40:36.100 --> 00:40:38.260
  • YOUR FAMILIES TOGETHER.
  • 00:40:38.280 --> 00:40:40.220
  • AND LET ME JUST LEAN INTO THE CHURCH THING A BIT.
  • 00:40:40.240 --> 00:40:43.060
  • OBVIOUSLY, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT YOU
  • 00:40:43.080 --> 00:40:47.070
  • KNEW GOD DID THIS.
  • 00:40:47.090 --> 00:40:49.000
  • I MEAN, LET'S BACK UP A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:40:49.020 --> 00:40:50.230
  • YOU'RE PASTORING ONE CHURCH L.A., AND THEN YOU
  • 00:40:50.250 --> 00:40:54.050
  • GUYS GET MARRIED. THE DENVER SITUATION.
  • 00:40:54.070 --> 00:40:56.290
  • I MEAN, VERY UNIQUE.
  • 00:40:57.010 --> 00:40:58.130
  • THE MILLENNIALS, THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY, AND
  • 00:40:58.150 --> 00:41:01.220
  • THEN A CHURCH, WITHOUT CASTING ANY SHADOW, A LOT OF CHURCHES
  • 00:41:01.240 --> 00:41:05.080
  • HAVE GONE THROUGH A LOT OF PAIN.
  • 00:41:05.100 --> 00:41:07.160
  • I THINK ONE OF YOU GUYS PREACHED ON HOW TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:41:07.180 --> 00:41:09.260
  • PAIN CAUSED BY THE CHURCH.
  • 00:41:09.280 --> 00:41:11.250
  • YOU'RE DEALING WITH SUCH A UNIQUE -- IT WAS GOD, AND THEN
  • 00:41:11.270 --> 00:41:18.120
  • WHAT DO YOU SEE AS BEING SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN A PART
  • 00:41:18.140 --> 00:41:21.150
  • OF MAKING THIS WORK?
  • 00:41:21.170 --> 00:41:23.110
  • - YEAH, I THINK THAT MOVE ITSELF WAS JUST OBEDIENCE, YOU
  • 00:41:23.130 --> 00:41:25.270
  • KNOW? I WENT TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:41:25.290 --> 00:41:28.060
  • I WENT THERE WITH MY FATHER IN-LAW, BISHOP JAKES, TO
  • 00:41:28.080 --> 00:41:31.060
  • ENCOURAGE HIM AS HE WAS ENCOURAGING THE LEADERS
  • 00:41:31.080 --> 00:41:33.150
  • THROUGH THEIR TRANSITION.
  • 00:41:33.170 --> 00:41:35.170
  • I WALKED IN THERE BECAUSE I HAD A HEART FOR BISHOP.
  • 00:41:35.190 --> 00:41:38.010
  • I SAW THE PEOPLE AND WALKED OUT OF THERE WITH
  • 00:41:38.030 --> 00:41:39.210
  • A HEART FOR THEM.
  • 00:41:39.230 --> 00:41:41.180
  • AND GOD SAID, YOU KNOW, OVER A SERIES OF MONTHS, I'M CALLING
  • 00:41:41.200 --> 00:41:45.180
  • YOU TO THAT CHURCH.
  • 00:41:45.200 --> 00:41:47.180
  • BUT I THINK THAT WE ARE CALLED TO PAIN.
  • 00:41:47.200 --> 00:41:51.100
  • WE'RE ATTRACTED TO PAIN.
  • 00:41:51.120 --> 00:41:54.070
  • THERE'S A LOT OF PAIN IN L.A., AND ISAIAH 61, THE SPIRIT OF
  • 00:41:54.090 --> 00:42:01.250
  • THE LORD IS UPON ME.
  • 00:42:01.270 --> 00:42:03.220
  • HE'S ANOINTED ME TO BIND UP THE BROKEN HEARTED, TO BRING
  • 00:42:03.240 --> 00:42:05.110
  • LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES.
  • 00:42:05.130 --> 00:42:07.110
  • SO I'M AT MY BEST WHEN I FIND SOMEBODY BROKEN.
  • 00:42:07.130 --> 00:42:11.090
  • WHOLENESS IS MY MANDATE; GETTING PEOPLE WHOLE AND SET
  • 00:42:11.110 --> 00:42:16.170
  • FREE IS THE NEW BOOK IS OUT.
  • 00:42:16.190 --> 00:42:18.230
  • BUT I THINK THAT I'M JUST DRAWN TO THE PAIN OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:42:18.250 --> 00:42:25.020
  • AND I ALSO SEE THE BEST IN EVERY PERSON.
  • 00:42:25.040 --> 00:42:29.070
  • I DON'T CARE HOW A PERSON SEES THEMSELVES.
  • 00:42:29.090 --> 00:42:31.220
  • I SEE THEM AS ONE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD,
  • 00:42:31.240 --> 00:42:34.130
  • WHETHER THAT'S AN INDIVIDUAL OR A CHURCH.
  • 00:42:34.150 --> 00:42:37.070
  • THERE WAS A DESTINY ON THE POTTER'S HOUSE DENVER, AND
  • 00:42:37.090 --> 00:42:39.290
  • JUST BECAUSE THERE WAS SOME TRANSITION, AGAIN,
  • 00:42:40.010 --> 00:42:42.090
  • THE DESTINY WASN'T LOST.
  • 00:42:42.110 --> 00:42:44.200
  • I THINK, TO A CERTAIN DEGREE, THE POTTER'S HOUSE DENVER
  • 00:42:44.220 --> 00:42:47.080
  • REPRESENTED MY OWN LIFE. WE HAD SOME TRANSITION.
  • 00:42:47.100 --> 00:42:50.080
  • WE HAD SOME TROUBLE, BUT GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:42:50.100 --> 00:42:52.060
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET BACK ON THIS THING.
  • 00:42:52.080 --> 00:42:53.260
  • WE'RE GOING TO PRESS IN.
  • 00:42:53.280 --> 00:42:55.180
  • WE'RE GOING TO LAY HOLD OF ALL THE PROMISES THAT WERE ON THAT
  • 00:42:55.200 --> 00:42:58.270
  • CHURCH BEFORE I GOT THERE, AND WE'RE SEEING
  • 00:42:58.290 --> 00:43:01.060
  • INCREDIBLE THINGS TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:43:01.080 --> 00:43:03.200
  • I BELIEVE GOD CAN FIX ANYTHING.
  • 00:43:03.220 --> 00:43:06.050
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:43:06.070 --> 00:43:08.130
  • - I THINK YOU SAID SOMETHING VERY REVEALING.
  • 00:43:08.150 --> 00:43:13.070
  • I THINK THAT EVERY PASTOR, EVERY CHRISTIAN, THE WHOLE
  • 00:43:13.090 --> 00:43:18.210
  • CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY, WHEN YOU SAID YOU WERE MADE FOR PAIN,
  • 00:43:18.230 --> 00:43:22.240
  • THAT YOU'RE DRAWN TO PAIN.
  • 00:43:22.260 --> 00:43:24.280
  • I THINK THE BEST DEFINITION OF SIN IS PAIN.
  • 00:43:25.000 --> 00:43:28.280
  • I THINK THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH BY PAIN, AND I THINK
  • 00:43:29.000 --> 00:43:33.090
  • THAT I TRY TO TELL PASTORS -- I WORK WITH JOEL OSTEEN AND
  • 00:43:33.110 --> 00:43:36.270
  • CHAMPION'S NETWORK, AND WE WORK WITH HUNDREDS OF PASTORS,
  • 00:43:36.290 --> 00:43:39.180
  • AND I SAY, IF YOU'RE WORKING ON YOUR MESSAGE, STAND BACK
  • 00:43:39.200 --> 00:43:42.100
  • AND MAKE SURE HOW IS THIS ADDRESSING THE PAIN?
  • 00:43:42.120 --> 00:43:44.190
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE IN PAIN.
  • 00:43:44.210 --> 00:43:46.270
  • SO YOU SAID SOMETHING I THINK IS POWERFUL, DRAWN TO PAIN.
  • 00:43:46.290 --> 00:43:50.110
  • DON'T BE AFRAID OF PAIN.
  • 00:43:50.130 --> 00:43:52.190
  • YOU KNOW THE OLD STORY, THE GUY THAT THE SHOE COMPANY SENT
  • 00:43:52.210 --> 00:43:55.280
  • TO A COUNTRY, AND HE WAS THERE FOR TWO OR THREE WEEKS AND SAID,
  • 00:43:56.000 --> 00:43:59.220
  • MAN, SEND ME BACK. WHY DID YOU SEND ME HERE?
  • 00:43:59.240 --> 00:44:02.030
  • THESE PEOPLE DON'T EVEN WEAR SHOES, AND THEN A FEW YEARS
  • 00:44:02.050 --> 00:44:04.250
  • LATER, ANOTHER SALESMAN WAS SENT, AND HE WAS THERE FOR
  • 00:44:04.270 --> 00:44:07.100
  • LIKE TWO OR THREE DAYS, AND I SAID SEND ME 50.000 PAIRS.
  • 00:44:07.120 --> 00:44:10.220
  • THESE PEOPLE DON'T EVEN WEAR SHOES.
  • 00:44:10.240 --> 00:44:12.160
  • I MEAN, YOU HAVE TO SEE PAIN AS WHY WE'RE HERE, AND WHEN
  • 00:44:12.180 --> 00:44:17.080
  • YOU EMBRACE THAT -- AND THEN IT SAYS THAT SIN IS FALLING
  • 00:44:17.100 --> 00:44:21.190
  • SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD, SO PAIN IS THE RESULT OF SIN,
  • 00:44:21.210 --> 00:44:25.240
  • AND SIN IS MISSING THE MARK OF GOD'S BEST.
  • 00:44:25.260 --> 00:44:28.080
  • - YES.
  • 00:44:28.100 --> 00:44:29.290
  • - I THINK WE'RE SO SIDEWAYS.
  • 00:44:30.010 --> 00:44:32.130
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE'S HABITS, THEIR DYSFUNCTION,
  • 00:44:32.150 --> 00:44:34.020
  • WHAT THEY DO WRONG, AS IF THAT'S BOTHERING GOD.
  • 00:44:34.040 --> 00:44:37.100
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:44:37.120 --> 00:44:38.270
  • - YOU KNOW? IS GOD BOTHERED BY OUR BAD HABITS?
  • 00:44:38.290 --> 00:44:41.080
  • - NO.
  • 00:44:41.100 --> 00:44:44.020
  • - HE'S BOTHERED WHEN HE HAD A DESTINY THAT BEFORE TIME
  • 00:44:44.040 --> 00:44:46.250
  • BEGAN, AND YOU'RE NOT WALKING IN IT.
  • 00:44:46.270 --> 00:44:49.130
  • THAT'S WHAT HURTS GOD.
  • 00:44:49.150 --> 00:44:51.120
  • SO TO SEE YOU DOING THAT, I THINK, IS A REFLECTION ON THE
  • 00:44:51.140 --> 00:44:56.020
  • FACT THAT PASTORS, LEADERS, MOMS, BLENDED FAMILIES, DON'T
  • 00:44:56.040 --> 00:45:00.100
  • RUN FROM PAIN, YEAH?
  • 00:45:00.120 --> 00:45:01.280
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:45:02.000 --> 00:45:03.160
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:45:03.180 --> 00:45:05.070
  • I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS REALLY BEEN A MARKER IN
  • 00:45:05.090 --> 00:45:06.290
  • OUR LIFE IS OUR PURSUIT OF UNCOVERING THAT WHICH MAKES US
  • 00:45:07.010 --> 00:45:08.240
  • UNCOMFORTABLE SO THAT WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHO WE ARE AS A
  • 00:45:08.260 --> 00:45:13.020
  • RESULT OF EXPERIENCING THAT DISCOMFORT.
  • 00:45:13.040 --> 00:45:15.170
  • SO EVEN IN DENVER, WE HAD TO BE WILLING TO LEAVE THAT WHICH
  • 00:45:15.190 --> 00:45:18.220
  • WE DID WELL IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND WHERE OUR WEAKNESS
  • 00:45:18.240 --> 00:45:22.020
  • IS AND, ULTIMATELY, FOR GOD TO SHOW US WHERE HIS STRENGTH
  • 00:45:22.040 --> 00:45:24.130
  • CAN BE MADE PERFECT.
  • 00:45:24.150 --> 00:45:26.130
  • AND THE SAME HAS EXISTED IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:45:26.150 --> 00:45:28.180
  • AS OUR FAMILIES COME TOGETHER, GOD HAS REVEALED AREA WHERE IT
  • 00:45:28.200 --> 00:45:31.110
  • COULD BECOME, I COULD BECOME A STRONGER MOTHER, OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:45:31.130 --> 00:45:34.100
  • CAN BECOME STRONGER TEENAGERS, AND IT TOOK ONE ANOTHER'S
  • 00:45:34.120 --> 00:45:37.240
  • TRUST AND PERSPECTIVE ABOUT OUR LIFE TO SAY, HERE I AM.
  • 00:45:37.260 --> 00:45:40.100
  • THIS IS UNCOMFORTABLE, IT'S AWKWARD, BUT HERE I AM.
  • 00:45:40.120 --> 00:45:43.280
  • I WANT TO GROW, I WANT TO LEARN, AND I TRUST YOUR
  • 00:45:44.000 --> 00:45:46.080
  • PERSPECTIVE AND YOUR LOVE TO HELP ME GROW INTO WHO GOD HAS
  • 00:45:46.100 --> 00:45:49.000
  • CALLED ME TO BE.
  • 00:45:49.020 --> 00:45:50.270
  • - I'M A TESTIMONY OF THE GRACE THAT IS BEARING SUCH
  • 00:45:50.290 --> 00:45:55.020
  • GREAT FRUIT, AND I'M JUST SO PROUD OF BOTH OF YOU.
  • 00:45:55.040 --> 00:45:58.020
  • AND I WANT TO SAY IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS,
  • 00:45:58.040 --> 00:46:02.160
  • I'M GOING TO SARAH AND P.T.
  • 00:46:02.180 --> 00:46:05.280
  • TAKE HOLD OF THE EYES OF THIS NETWORK AND GO INTO YOUR
  • 00:46:06.000 --> 00:46:11.050
  • LIVING ROOM, INTO YOUR LIFE, AND TO JUST RELEASE OUT OF
  • 00:46:11.070 --> 00:46:15.140
  • THEIR SPIRIT AN ANOINTING THAT I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:46:15.160 --> 00:46:17.210
  • GOD WILL RELEASE TO YOU.
  • 00:46:17.230 --> 00:46:20.060
  • AND I JUST WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU
  • 00:46:20.080 --> 00:46:24.180
  • AND APPRECIATION TO MATT AND LAURIE CROUCH BECAUSE THEY'VE
  • 00:46:24.200 --> 00:46:28.260
  • DONE THE SAME THING.
  • 00:46:28.280 --> 00:46:30.230
  • THEY'VE TAKEN A VISION THAT WAS 40 YEARS BY A PIONEER THAT
  • 00:46:30.250 --> 00:46:35.130
  • WORKED VERY, VERY HARD AND WAS DRIVEN, UNSTOPPABLE, BOTH PAUL
  • 00:46:35.150 --> 00:46:40.250
  • AND JAN, AND THEN FOR THE NEXT GENERATION TO COME IN AND TO
  • 00:46:40.270 --> 00:46:45.010
  • REACH OUT TO THE FORMER AND TO THOSE THAT GOT US WHERE WE ARE
  • 00:46:45.030 --> 00:46:51.110
  • AND TO APPEAL TO THEM TO SAY, HEY, STAY WITH US.
  • 00:46:51.130 --> 00:46:54.050
  • DON'T LEAVE US, BECAUSE THIS IS A BLENDED THING
  • 00:46:54.070 --> 00:46:56.190
  • GOD'S DOING AT TBN.
  • 00:46:56.210 --> 00:46:58.090
  • WE'RE NOT NEGLECTING THE PAST.
  • 00:46:58.110 --> 00:47:00.090
  • WE'RE SAYING TO THE PAST, GO WITH US INTO THE FUTURE, AND
  • 00:47:00.110 --> 00:47:03.060
  • WE'RE SPEAKING TO THE FUTURE, PROGRAMMING THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:47:03.080 --> 00:47:06.120
  • RELATE TO A LOT OF AUDIENCE THAT'S WATCHING NOW BECAUSE
  • 00:47:06.140 --> 00:47:09.130
  • MATT AND LAURIE ARE THINKING ABOUT THE ONES THAT WILL BE
  • 00:47:09.150 --> 00:47:12.030
  • COMING BY, THE ONES THAT WILL BE WATCHING.
  • 00:47:12.050 --> 00:47:14.130
  • AND SO I JUST WANT TO SAY, AS SOMEONE THAT'S BEEN HOSTING
  • 00:47:14.150 --> 00:47:18.140
  • FOR OVER 25 YEARS, TO SAY TO ALL OF OUR VIEWERS,
  • 00:47:18.160 --> 00:47:22.160
  • STAY WITH US. STAY STRONG.
  • 00:47:22.180 --> 00:47:24.140
  • FIRST OF ALL, KNOW GOD IS IN IT LIKE P.T. SAID.
  • 00:47:24.160 --> 00:47:27.150
  • IT'S OF GOD, SO KEEP YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:47:27.170 --> 00:47:30.040
  • AND NUMBER TWO, LET'S ALL BE HUMBLE.
  • 00:47:30.060 --> 00:47:32.090
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO ALWAYS LIKE EVERYTHING THAT EVERYONE DOES,
  • 00:47:32.110 --> 00:47:35.100
  • AND LET'S BE GRACED WITH HUMILITY.
  • 00:47:35.120 --> 00:47:38.070
  • SO I WANTED TO TAKE THAT MOMENT TO SAY ON BEHALF OF
  • 00:47:38.090 --> 00:47:42.230
  • JEANNE AND I WHAT AN HONOR IT IS TO SEE WATCHMAN.
  • 00:47:42.250 --> 00:47:46.290
  • AT ONE POINT, IF I MAY, MATT AND LAURIE WERE
  • 00:47:47.010 --> 00:47:50.220
  • MEMBERS OF OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:47:50.240 --> 00:47:52.150
  • I REMEMBER I TOLD SOMEBODY THIS YESTERDAY, AND THEY WERE
  • 00:47:52.170 --> 00:47:54.030
  • SHOCKED.
  • 00:47:54.050 --> 00:47:55.160
  • THEY NEVER MISS SUNDAYS.
  • 00:47:55.180 --> 00:47:57.010
  • THEY WERE THERE EVERY SUNDAY.
  • 00:47:57.030 --> 00:47:58.150
  • THEY TOOK THEIR TURN IN THE NURSERY.
  • 00:47:58.170 --> 00:47:59.270
  • I REMEMBER WATCHING MATT AND LAURIE GO IN THE NURSERY
  • 00:47:59.290 --> 00:48:01.160
  • AND DO NURSERY DUTY.
  • 00:48:01.180 --> 00:48:03.030
  • THEY WERE TRUE SAINTS AND MEMBERS, AND OUR FRIENDSHIP
  • 00:48:03.050 --> 00:48:06.120
  • HAS CONTINUED THROUGH THE YEARS.
  • 00:48:06.140 --> 00:48:08.130
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE IN THEIR PAIN, AND NO MATTER
  • 00:48:08.150 --> 00:48:14.100
  • WHAT PEOPLE SAY, TELEVISION IS STILL ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL
  • 00:48:14.120 --> 00:48:16.210
  • FORCES BECAUSE IT COMES INTO PEOPLE'S HOMES, AND PEOPLE CAN
  • 00:48:16.230 --> 00:48:19.250
  • WATCH WITHOUT ANYBODY CRITICIZING THEM OR WHAT'S
  • 00:48:19.270 --> 00:48:23.020
  • ANYBODY GOING TO THINK?
  • 00:48:23.040 --> 00:48:26.140
  • IT'S JUST AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY, SO I WANT TO ASK
  • 00:48:26.160 --> 00:48:32.080
  • YOU, SARAH, TO GO FIRST, AND
  • 00:48:32.100 --> 00:48:34.240
  • THEN P.T. TO FOLLOW,
  • 00:48:34.260 --> 00:48:36.260
  • TO JUST SPEAK TO THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE NOT
  • 00:48:36.280 --> 00:48:41.200
  • TO BE AFRAID OF THEIR PAIN, TO KNOW THAT THEY MAY BE THE ONE
  • 00:48:41.220 --> 00:48:45.070
  • FOR THE WAY, BUT GOD HAS ORCHESTRATED THIS, THIS MOMENT.
  • 00:48:45.090 --> 00:48:49.130
  • AND I WANT TO GIVE YOU PERMISSION AND THE RIGHT TO
  • 00:48:49.150 --> 00:48:53.280
  • STEP INTO THE WORLD OF THOSE THAT ARE WATCHING
  • 00:48:54.000 --> 00:48:56.120
  • AND PRAY FOR THEM.
  • 00:48:56.140 --> 00:48:59.080
  • - WELL, THERE'S A PART IN MY HUSBAND'S BOOK, WHOLENESS,
  • 00:48:59.100 --> 00:49:02.040
  • THERE'S A CHAPTER THAT SAYS, IT'S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY.
  • 00:49:02.060 --> 00:49:05.070
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE RHYTHM OF LIFE OFTEN ROBS US
  • 00:49:05.090 --> 00:49:08.270
  • OF IS THE ABILITY TO SAY, I'M NOT DOING OKAY.
  • 00:49:08.290 --> 00:49:12.100
  • WELL, RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOMENT, WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:49:12.120 --> 00:49:14.280
  • TO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT IN OUCH, THAT HURT ME, THAT DIDN'T FEEL
  • 00:49:15.000 --> 00:49:18.280
  • GOOD, AND I THINK IT MAY HAVE CHANGED THE WAY I SEE MY
  • 00:49:19.000 --> 00:49:22.180
  • FUTURE, CHANGED THE WAY I SEE MY POTENTIAL.
  • 00:49:22.200 --> 00:49:24.280
  • AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I'VE BEEN THERE.
  • 00:49:25.000 --> 00:49:27.000
  • I UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH AND
  • 00:49:27.020 --> 00:49:29.060
  • EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL WHEN THE TEARS STREAM DOWN YOUR FACE SO
  • 00:49:29.080 --> 00:49:32.030
  • LONG THAT THEY STOP STREAMING, AND THEY JUST
  • 00:49:32.050 --> 00:49:34.110
  • STREAM ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:49:34.130 --> 00:49:36.110
  • AND I WANT YOU TO ME THAT GOD IS WITH YOU THE SAME WAY THAT
  • 00:49:36.130 --> 00:49:39.110
  • HE WAS WITH ME; THAT IF YOU WITH DARE TO ALLOW THAT PAIN
  • 00:49:39.130 --> 00:49:42.070
  • TO BE REAL, THAT YOU CAN PROCESS IT IN SUCH A WAY THAT
  • 00:49:42.090 --> 00:49:46.050
  • YOU RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS WISDOM HIDDEN IN THOSE WOUNDS.
  • 00:49:46.070 --> 00:49:49.070
  • YOU'RE STRONGER AS A RESULT OF WHAT YOU FACE.
  • 00:49:49.090 --> 00:49:52.020
  • THERE IS POWER DOWN ON THE INSIDE OF YOU BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:49:52.040 --> 00:49:54.240
  • PAIN THAT YOU ENDURED, AND SOMETIMES, LIFE HAS TO SQUEEZE
  • 00:49:54.260 --> 00:49:58.280
  • STRENGTH OUT OF US, BUT WHEN LIFE GETS FINISHED SQUEEZING,
  • 00:49:59.000 --> 00:50:01.220
  • YOU LOOK UP, AND YOU RECOGNIZE THAT I DID NOT JUST SURVIVE TO
  • 00:50:01.240 --> 00:50:04.070
  • BE NORMAL OR TO GO BACK TO THE WAY THINGS WERE.
  • 00:50:04.090 --> 00:50:07.230
  • I SURVIVED SO THAT I COULD REACH BACK AND HELP SOMEONE
  • 00:50:07.250 --> 00:50:10.200
  • WHO HAS EXPERIENCED THIS DARKNESS, WHO IS EXPERIENCING
  • 00:50:10.220 --> 00:50:14.070
  • THIS DEPRESSION TO UNDERSTAND THAT SURVIVORS KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:50:14.090 --> 00:50:16.160
  • WALK WITH A LIMP.
  • 00:50:16.180 --> 00:50:18.160
  • BRUISED HEELS STILL CRUSH SERPENTS' HEAD.
  • 00:50:18.180 --> 00:50:20.270
  • SO I'M PRAYING THAT GOD WOULD CONTINUE TO ALLOW YOU TO BE
  • 00:50:20.290 --> 00:50:23.210
  • REMINDED OF HIS LOVE, THAT HE WOULD ALLOW THIS MESSAGE TO
  • 00:50:23.230 --> 00:50:27.160
  • PERMEATE SO DEEP IN YOUR HEART THAT EVEN WHEN IT GOES OFF,
  • 00:50:27.180 --> 00:50:30.100
  • YOU STILL FEEL HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:50:30.120 --> 00:50:32.140
  • AND FOR SOME STRANGE REASON, OUT OF DECADES OF YOU LIVING
  • 00:50:32.160 --> 00:50:35.220
  • WITH THIS PAIN, ALL OF THE SUDDEN YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:50:35.240 --> 00:50:38.050
  • YOU CAN EMBRACE IT.
  • 00:50:38.070 --> 00:50:40.070
  • SOMEONE'S GOT TO LOVE THAT LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS BROKEN.
  • 00:50:40.090 --> 00:50:42.150
  • SOMEONE HAS TO EMBRACE THAT LITTLE BOY WHO
  • 00:50:42.170 --> 00:50:44.140
  • EXPERIENCED THE PAIN.
  • 00:50:44.160 --> 00:50:46.120
  • I WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU TO BE THE PERSON WHO PICKS UP THE
  • 00:50:46.140 --> 00:50:48.230
  • PIECES OF THEIR LIFE AND SAYS, I'M GOING TO LOVE YOU WITH THE
  • 00:50:48.250 --> 00:50:52.000
  • LOVE OF GOD, AND GOD IS GOING TO SHOW ME
  • 00:50:52.020 --> 00:50:53.180
  • HOW TO MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:50:53.200 --> 00:50:55.160
  • - BEAUTIFUL. - HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:50:55.180 --> 00:50:57.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:57.210 --> 00:51:02.100
  • - AND I'LL JUST ADD TO THAT, A LOT OF TIMES WHEN
  • 00:51:02.120 --> 00:51:04.200
  • YOU'RE IN PAIN, YOU FEEL ALONE.
  • 00:51:04.220 --> 00:51:07.020
  • YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE BY YOURSELF.
  • 00:51:07.040 --> 00:51:08.180
  • YOU FEEL LIKE NOBODY'S BEEN THROUGH WHAT
  • 00:51:08.200 --> 00:51:10.210
  • YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH.
  • 00:51:10.230 --> 00:51:12.130
  • YOU FEEL LIKE IT'S INSURMOUNTABLE, BUT I WANT TO
  • 00:51:12.150 --> 00:51:14.210
  • REMIND YOU THAT THERE'S A MAN NAMED JESUS, AND THE WORD
  • 00:51:14.230 --> 00:51:18.240
  • CALLS HIM A HIGH PRIEST, AND I MIGHT PARAPHRASE, WHO IS VERY,
  • 00:51:18.260 --> 00:51:24.160
  • VERY INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH OUR SUFFERINGS BECAUSE ON
  • 00:51:24.180 --> 00:51:28.010
  • THE CROSS, JESUS CHRIST BECAME OUR PAIN.
  • 00:51:28.030 --> 00:51:33.210
  • HE BECAME OUR WEAKNESS. HE BECAME OUR BONDAGE.
  • 00:51:33.230 --> 00:51:36.010
  • HE WAS REJECTED. HE WAS HURT.
  • 00:51:36.030 --> 00:51:38.250
  • HE WAS PHYSICALLY MARRED AND ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND HE
  • 00:51:38.270 --> 00:51:41.270
  • TOOK ALL OF THAT UPON HIMSELF SO THAT YOU
  • 00:51:41.290 --> 00:51:44.260
  • DIDN'T HAVE TO CARRY IT.
  • 00:51:44.280 --> 00:51:46.230
  • HE TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF.
  • 00:51:46.250 --> 00:51:48.160
  • HE DIED WITH IT IN HIS BODY, AND WHEN HE WAS RAISED UP FREE
  • 00:51:48.180 --> 00:51:52.070
  • AND VICTORIOUS, THAT WAS A PROMISE TO YOU THAT IF YOU
  • 00:51:52.090 --> 00:51:55.080
  • HANG IN THERE, I WILL RAISE YOU UP, TOO.
  • 00:51:55.100 --> 00:51:58.140
  • AND SO I WANT YOU TO LOOK TO JESUS WHEN YOU'RE IN PAIN, AND
  • 00:51:58.160 --> 00:52:02.150
  • I'M NOT BEING INSENSITIVE, BUT I WANT YOU TO LOOK TO HIM
  • 00:52:02.170 --> 00:52:06.010
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE IT.
  • 00:52:06.030 --> 00:52:08.020
  • YOU'RE GOING TO COME THROUGH THIS.
  • 00:52:08.040 --> 00:52:09.290
  • SO, FATHER, I JUST AGREE WITH THIS PRAYER THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:52:10.010 --> 00:52:11.190
  • PRAYED, AND I THANK YOU THAT THE POWER OF THE CROSS, THE
  • 00:52:11.210 --> 00:52:14.030
  • POWER OF WHAT YOU BECAME ON THE CROSS, EVERYTHING BROKEN
  • 00:52:14.050 --> 00:52:18.120
  • WITH HUMANITY, AND YOU BROKE WHAT WAS BROKEN SO THAT WE
  • 00:52:18.140 --> 00:52:21.200
  • MIGHT BE WHOLE AND WELL.
  • 00:52:21.220 --> 00:52:23.110
  • AND THE BEST IS STILL YET TO COME.
  • 00:52:23.130 --> 00:52:25.160
  • IT IS NOT OVER. YOU KNOW THE PLANS YOU HAVE.
  • 00:52:25.180 --> 00:52:28.140
  • REMEMBER THAT GOD HAS GOT A FUTURE FOR YOU,
  • 00:52:28.160 --> 00:52:30.270
  • AND WE LOVE YOU. WE'RE STANDING WITH YOU.
  • 00:52:30.290 --> 00:52:32.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:52:32.210 --> 00:52:40.070
  • - THERE'S A SONG "I COULD SING OF YOUR PRAISES FOREVER."
  • 00:52:40.090 --> 00:52:42.070
  • I COULD INTERVIEW YOU GUYS FOREVER.
  • 00:52:42.090 --> 00:52:44.220
  • I JUST FEEL LIKE THAT NO MATTER WHAT DOOR WE OPEN, YOU
  • 00:52:44.240 --> 00:52:48.090
  • COME OUT WITH SUCH GRACEFUL TRUTH, AND I JUST WANT TO SAY
  • 00:52:48.110 --> 00:52:53.070
  • I HAVE A DEEP, DEEP LOVE AND RESPECT FOR BOTH OF YOU, AND

  • FEEL THAT YOU'RE A GIFT TO THE NATION AND TO THE NATIONS AND
  • 00:52:57.090 --> 00:53:01.010
  • TO THE GENERATIONS.
  • 00:53:01.030 --> 00:53:02.250
  • AND MY PRAYER IS THAT THE FAVOR OF GOD WILL CONTINUE TO
  • 00:53:02.270 --> 00:53:06.000
  • BE UPON YOU AND THAT EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY BE BLOWN
  • 00:53:06.020 --> 00:53:11.230
  • AWAY BY WHAT GOD HAS DONE, YOU HAVEN'T SEEP ANYTHING YET.
  • 00:53:11.250 --> 00:53:14.190
  • - WOW.
  • 00:53:14.210 --> 00:53:16.230
  • - NOT SO MUCH JUST BECAUSE I LOVE YOU AND YOU'RE GREAT
  • 00:53:16.250 --> 00:53:19.080
  • PEOPLE, BUT BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT PEOPLE NEED THIS,
  • 00:53:19.100 --> 00:53:23.090
  • AND THE NEED IS GREAT.
  • 00:53:23.110 --> 00:53:25.210
  • AND I WANT TO SAY TO THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN OUR FRIENDS
  • 00:53:25.230 --> 00:53:29.060

  • TOGETHER, THAT YOUR LIFE MATTERS.

  • A TREE FALLS IN THE FOREST, DOES IT MAKE A SOUND?

  • KNOW THAT IF YOU NEVER WRITE A BOOK, IF YOU'RE NEVER ON THIS

  • DID WHAT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO DO, AND YOUR DESTINY WILL NOT
  • 00:54:09.130 --> 00:54:12.190
