  • I WANT TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:32.190
  • THERE ARE CHALLENGES, BUT IT'S
  • 00:05:32.190 --> 00:05:33.100
  • WORTH IT.
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:35.190
  • WHY IS IT WORTH IT?
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:39.160
  • I WAS IN AMSTERDAM MANY YEARS

  • 00:05:49.010 --> 00:05:52.010
  • OTHERS AND WE WOULD STOP AND
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:53.130
  • THEY WOULD DO DRAMAS AND THEN
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:55.190
  • I'D LIFT UP THE CROSS, SOME OF
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:56.240
  • THEM WOULD LIFT UP THE CROSS AND
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:57.220
  • I WOULD PREACH.
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:06:00.170
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN SOMEBODY RAN
  • 00:06:01.030 --> 00:06:04.030
  • UP TO ME AND THEY SAID, COME
  • 00:06:04.030 --> 00:06:05.130

  • HIMSELF.
  • 00:06:06.090 --> 00:06:09.090
  • I WENT RUNNING OVER.
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:12.080
  • THERE WAS A MAN THAT WAS
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:13.040
  • COMMITTING SUICIDE.
  • 00:06:14.130 --> 00:06:17.130
  • HE HAD RUN HIS ARM THROUGH A

  • PLATE GLASS WINDOW.
  • 00:06:18.030 --> 00:06:20.030
  • AND WAS BLEEDING AND WAS BASHING
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:22.250
  • HIS HEAD AGAINST A METAL BOX.
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:29.150
  • AND I STARTED TO GRAB HIM AND HE
  • 00:06:29.150 --> 00:06:30.180
  • PUT HIS FIST BACK READY TO HIT
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:31.260
  • ME.
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:35.000
  • AND I SAID, DO YOU SPEAK
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.020
  • ENGLISH?
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:39.130
  • HE STARTED CURSING IN ENGLISH.
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:40.230
  • SO I KNEW HE DID.
  • 00:06:40.230 --> 00:06:42.280
  • (LAUGHTER).
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:44.130
  • HE KNEW ALL THOSE WORDS.
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:47.060
  • TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT,
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:50.240
  • THERE WAS A CROWD WATCHING,
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:51.160
  • WATCHING.
  • 00:06:53.060 --> 00:06:56.060
  • I SAID, JESUS LOVES YOU.
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:07:00.260
  • AND I SAID-- I'M GOING TO GRAB
  • 00:07:00.260 --> 00:07:02.240
  • YOUR ARM AND I'M GOING TO CUT
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:04.110
  • OFF BLOOD.
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:07.240
  • IF YOU BEAT ME TO DEATH, YOU
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:09.200
  • WILL NOT DIE ALONE TODAY.
  • 00:07:09.200 --> 00:07:12.200
  • I'M GOING TO CUT OFF THE BLOOD
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:15.040
  • SUPPLY AND YOU CAN BEAT ME IF
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:16.190
  • YOU LIKE BUT I'M GOING TO GRAB
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:17.140
  • YOUR ARM.
  • 00:07:17.260 --> 00:07:20.260
  • I SAID ARE YOU READY?
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.230
  • SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:23.280
  • I GRABBED HIS ARM WITH BOTH
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:24.240
  • HANDS.
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:27.150
  • HE DREW BACK HIS FIST AND HE WAS
  • 00:07:27.150 --> 00:07:30.050
  • A BIG GUY.
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:32.230
  • I KNEW IF HE HIT ME IT WOULD
  • 00:07:32.230 --> 00:07:34.220
  • BREAK A JAW OR A CHIN OR
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:36.000
  • WHATEVER.
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:39.180
  • AND I WAS SAYING JESUS LOVES YOU
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:41.030
  • AND HE DIED FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:43.150
  • HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:43.180 --> 00:07:46.180
  • AND I WAS PREACHING AS HE WAS
  • 00:07:46.180 --> 00:07:48.240

  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:55.140
  • AND I PRAYED WITH HIM.
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:07:59.170
  • SOME OF THE OTHER PEOPLE STARTED
  • 00:07:59.170 --> 00:08:00.110
  • TALKING WITH HIM.
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:01.230
  • AN AMBULANCE CAME.
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:03.040
  • SOME WENT TO THE HOSPITAL WITH
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:03.250

  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:06.040

  • 00:16:35.140 --> 00:16:36.110
  • ARTHUR BLESSITT'S "THE CROSS."
  • 00:16:36.110 --> 00:16:37.030
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:41.160
  • - Arthur: I FELT JESUS SPEAK TO
  • 00:16:41.160 --> 00:16:43.000
  • ME AND SAY I WANT YOU TO PUT A
  • 00:16:43.000 --> 00:16:44.070
  • BIG CROSS ON THE WALL.
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:47.120
  • AND I DIDN'T WANT TO PUT A CROSS
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:48.140
  • ON THE WALL.
  • 00:16:48.140 --> 00:16:50.250
  • BUT THERE THAT NIGHT I REALIZED
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:52.120
  • THAT YES, I HAD TO MAKE A CROSS,
  • 00:16:52.120 --> 00:16:55.000
  • BECAUSE JESUS TOLD ME TO.
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:57.280
  • WHEN I GOT READY TO LIFT THE
  • 00:16:57.280 --> 00:16:59.080
  • CROSS UP, I REALIZED I DIDN'T
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:00.290
  • HAVE A WRENCH TO TIGHTEN DOWN
  • 00:17:00.290 --> 00:17:03.210
  • THE BOLT THAT HELD THE CROSS
  • 00:17:03.210 --> 00:17:04.250
  • BEAMS TOGETHER.
  • 00:17:05.180 --> 00:17:08.180
  • SO, OUTSIDE ONE OF THE HELL'S
  • 00:17:08.180 --> 00:17:10.140
  • ANGELS CAME UP ON HIS
  • 00:17:10.140 --> 00:17:12.020
  • MOTORCYCLE.
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:13.220
  • I SAID HEY, TOM, I HAD BEEN
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:14.250
  • GOING TO THE HELL'S ANGEL'S CAMP
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:16.090
  • AND BEEN MINISTERING THERE, I
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:18.120
  • SAID, HAVE YOU GOT A WRENCH?
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:20.060
  • I NEED TO BORROW A WRENCH.
  • 00:17:20.060 --> 00:17:21.180
  • HE SAID YEAH, MAN, I'VE GOT A HE
  • 00:17:21.180 --> 00:17:22.110
  • WRENCH.
  • 00:17:22.110 --> 00:17:24.120
  • CAME WALKING IN OUR BUILDING AND
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:27.070
  • SAID, WHAT DO YOU NEED?
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:29.280
  • I SAID, RIGHT THERE, I NEED THAT
  • 00:17:29.280 --> 00:17:30.250
  • BOLT TIGHTENED.
  • 00:17:30.250 --> 00:17:31.170
  • HE SAID, WHAT IS THAT?
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:32.140
  • I SAID, THAT'S A CROSS.
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:33.190
  • 12-FOOT CROSS, HE SAID, HERE,
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:37.050
  • YOU TAKE THE WRENCH.
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:37.280
  • YOU DO IT.
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:42.000
  • ABOUT 3 DAYS LATER, I WALKED
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:42.220
  • THROUGH THE BUILDING.
  • 00:17:42.220 --> 00:17:44.270
  • AND I SAW TOM STANDING, LOOKING
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:48.260
  • UP AT THE CROSS.
  • 00:17:48.260 --> 00:17:49.280
  • AND I WALKED UP BESIDE HIM AND I
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:52.290
  • SAID, TOM, WHAT IS HAPPENING?
  • 00:17:52.290 --> 00:17:54.040
  • HE SAID MAN, EVERY TIME I GO
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:54.280
  • DOWN THE STREET ON MY MOTORCYCLE
  • 00:17:54.280 --> 00:17:56.220
  • THERE ARE CROSSES ALL DOWN THE
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:18:00.020
  • STREET ON ALL THESE CHURCHES.
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:01.030
  • I NEVER SAW THEM BEFORE.
  • 00:18:01.030 --> 00:18:02.050
  • AND I REALIZED IT WAS MY WRENCH
  • 00:18:03.180 --> 00:18:06.180
  • THAT TIGHTENED DOWN THE CENTER
  • 00:18:06.180 --> 00:18:07.120
  • BOLT.
  • 00:18:07.120 --> 00:18:08.040
  • AND YOU SAID MY SINS PUT HIM
  • 00:18:08.040 --> 00:18:09.070
  • THERE.
  • 00:18:09.070 --> 00:18:11.230
  • TELL ME MORE.
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:12.220
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME I THEN
  • 00:18:12.220 --> 00:18:14.260
  • REALIZED THE POWER OF THIS REAL
  • 00:18:15.280 --> 00:18:18.280
  • LIFE-SIZED CROSS.
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:23.110
  • AT ABOUT 1 OR 2 O'CLOCK IN THE
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:24.040
  • MORNING AS I GOT READY TO GO TO
  • 00:18:24.040 --> 00:18:26.080
  • BED, JESUS SPOKE TO ME SO
  • 00:18:26.080 --> 00:18:27.190
  • CLEARLY.
  • 00:18:27.250 --> 00:18:30.250
  • "ARTHUR, TAKE THE CROSS OFF THE
  • 00:18:30.250 --> 00:18:32.230
  • WALL OF THE BUILDING AND PUT IT
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:37.090
  • ON YOUR SHOULDER AND CARRY IT ON
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:38.120
  • FOOT ACROSS AMERICA.
  • 00:18:38.120 --> 00:18:41.090
  • AND IDENTIFY MY MESSAGE WHERE
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:43.000
  • THE PEOPLE ARE."
  • 00:18:43.000 --> 00:18:46.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:49.150
  • - Matt: WOW!
  • 00:18:49.190 --> 00:18:52.190
  • THIS PRAISE PROGRAM IS IN
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:55.060
  • CELEBRATION OF THE 50 YEAR
  • 00:18:55.060 --> 00:18:57.290
  • JOURNEY THAT ARTHUR HAS BEEN ON.
  • 00:18:57.290 --> 00:18:59.200
  • THIS CROSS AND OTHERS THAT
  • 00:19:00.120 --> 00:19:03.120
  • PREDATED IT THAT HAVE BEEN BEAT
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:06.020
  • UP AND HAD TO BEEN RETIRED AND
  • 00:19:06.040 --> 00:19:09.040
  • ALL THAT, THIS LOOKS LIKE A
  • 00:19:09.040 --> 00:19:10.080
  • FRESH NEW ONE.
  • 00:19:10.080 --> 00:19:11.170
  • BUT, BASICALLY, 50 YEARS, 2018
  • 00:19:16.020 --> 00:19:19.020
  • THAT WE'RE HERE, YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:19:19.150 --> 00:19:22.150
  • EVERYWHERE THERE IS TO GO.
  • 00:19:23.100 --> 00:19:26.100
  • AND YOUR MESSAGE TONIGHT IS TO
  • 00:19:26.100 --> 00:19:28.260
  • REALLY IMPART SOMETHING.
  • 00:19:28.260 --> 00:19:30.080
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT TO IMPART TO
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:31.080
  • US?
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:35.090
  • - Arthur: I HADN'T THOUGHT
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:37.140
  • ABOUT IT WITH THE CONNECTION YOU
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:42.150
  • ARE SPEAKING ABOUT, BUT THIS IS
  • 00:19:42.150 --> 00:19:43.170
  • MY NEW CROSS, IT IS LIGHTER
  • 00:19:43.170 --> 00:19:46.080
  • WEIGHT SO I DON'T HAVE AS MUCH
  • 00:19:46.080 --> 00:19:47.080
  • PRESSURE ON MY KNEES AND THE
  • 00:19:47.260 --> 00:19:50.260
  • LORD GAVE ME DISPENSATION TO
  • 00:19:50.260 --> 00:19:51.170
  • LIGHTEN THE WEIGHT.
  • 00:19:51.230 --> 00:19:54.230
  • SO THIS IS THE FIRST TIME ON
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:59.140
  • TELEVISION FOR MY NEW CROSS.
  • 00:19:59.140 --> 00:20:00.070
  • - Matt: I LIKE IT.
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:02.240
  • - Arthur: AND IT IS LIKE THE
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:03.170
  • NEW BEGINNING.
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:07.110
  • THE PASSING OF THE MISSION OF
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:09.030
  • THE WORLD.
  • 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:18.160
  • AND JESUS ENTRUSTED.
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:19.180
  • HE COULD HAVE CALLED THE ANGELS
  • 00:20:19.180 --> 00:20:22.090
  • TO TESTIFY.
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:25.070
  • HE COULD WRITE SALVATION IN THE
  • 00:20:25.070 --> 00:20:25.290
  • SKY WITH HIS FINGER.
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:29.190
  • BUT, HE CHOSE TO USE THOSE WHO
  • 00:20:29.190 --> 00:20:32.030
  • BELIEVE IN HIM TO BE HIS
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:32.220
  • WITNESS.
  • 00:20:34.140 --> 00:20:37.140
  • AND, I'M SO DEEPLY MOVED TO SAY
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:41.070
  • THAT THE SOLUTION THAT THE WORLD
  • 00:20:42.220 --> 00:20:45.220
  • NEEDS IS THE MESSAGE OF THE
  • 00:20:45.220 --> 00:20:46.250
  • CROSS.
  • 00:20:48.120 --> 00:20:51.120
  • THERE IS NOTHING ELSE THAT
  • 00:20:51.120 --> 00:20:52.020
  • BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN SINFUL
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:52.240
  • MAN AND A HOLY GOD.
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:58.070
  • AND SO, JESUS IS NOT JUST AN
  • 00:20:58.070 --> 00:20:59.230
  • ATTRACTIVE PERSONALITY IN
  • 00:21:01.010 --> 00:21:04.010
  • HISTORY, HE IS ABSOLUTELY THE
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.160
  • GLORY OF GOD MANIFEST IN THE
  • 00:21:05.210 --> 00:21:08.210
  • FLESH WHO BORE OUR SINS AND HE
  • 00:21:10.110 --> 00:21:13.110
  • WAS NAILED TO A CROSS AND SHED
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:15.000
  • HIS HOLY BLOOD AND THE VEIL OF
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:18.230
  • THE TEMPLE WAS RIPPED FROM TOP
  • 00:21:18.230 --> 00:21:21.210
  • TO BOTTOM AND THAT WE MIGHT HAVE
  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:24.270
  • ACCESS TO THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:21:27.040 --> 00:21:30.040
  • AND THEN BURIED AND ROSE AGAIN
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:31.150
  • HE LIVES.
  • 00:21:33.060 --> 00:21:36.060
  • AND HE EVER LIVES TO MAKE
  • 00:21:36.060 --> 00:21:36.250
  • INTERCESSION FOR US.
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:42.060
  • LIKE FROM WALKING ONE STEP AT A
  • 00:21:42.060 --> 00:21:43.170
  • TIME I LIVE ONE SOUL AT A TIME.
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:46.220
  • THE NEXT PERSON I MEET IS THE
  • 00:21:46.220 --> 00:21:49.190
  • MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:50.230
  • WORLD.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:53.290
  • AND SO, EVERYBODY THAT IS
  • 00:21:53.290 --> 00:21:55.180
  • WATCHING, GOD WANTS TO USE YOU.
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:21:59.020
  • HE CALLED ME ON A FARM WHEN I
  • 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:03.240
  • WAS 15 YEARS OLD TO PREACH.
  • 00:22:03.240 --> 00:22:05.000
  • AND HE SAVED ME AT 7.
  • 00:22:06.200 --> 00:22:09.200
  • I LED MY FIRST PERSON TO CHRIST
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:11.020
  • THE NEXT DAY.
  • 00:22:11.020 --> 00:22:13.060
  • THERE NEEDS TO BE AN ANOINTING
  • 00:22:13.060 --> 00:22:14.290
  • AN EMPOWERING OF THE
  • 00:22:14.290 --> 00:22:16.250
  • HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:18.260
  • JESUS DIDN'T JUST SAY GO.
  • 00:22:18.260 --> 00:22:21.040
  • HE SAID YOU WILL RECEIVE POWER
  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:23.150
  • AFTER THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS COME
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:25.150
  • UPON YOU AND YOU SHALL BE MY
  • 00:22:25.150 --> 00:22:27.080
  • WITNESS.
  • 00:22:27.080 --> 00:22:28.280
  • SO HE DIDN'T SEND US POWERLESS
  • 00:22:28.280 --> 00:22:31.050
  • INTO THE WORLD.
  • 00:22:31.050 --> 00:22:34.050
  • IT IS THE CONVICTION OF THE HOLY
  • 00:22:34.050 --> 00:22:35.160
  • SPIRIT..
  • 00:22:35.160 --> 00:22:36.080
  • AND HERE IS WHAT I PRAY IS THAT
  • 00:22:36.080 --> 00:22:38.040
  • THE GLORY OF GOD WILL BE SO
  • 00:22:38.040 --> 00:22:39.220
  • STRONG UPON YOU THAT HE WILL
  • 00:22:42.020 --> 00:22:45.020
  • BEAR WITNESS OF HIMSELF.
  • 00:22:45.240 --> 00:22:48.240
  • DENISE AND I, MY WIFE WERE IN
  • 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:52.160
  • CYPRUS AND ONE DAY, THIS WAS A
  • 00:22:52.240 --> 00:22:55.240
  • NUMBER OF YEARS AGO.
  • 00:22:55.240 --> 00:22:57.290
  • AND ONE DAY TWO MEN CAME UP AND
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:23:00.170
  • THEY WERE FROM THE U.N.
  • 00:23:00.170 --> 00:23:02.170
  • THEY HAD U.N. FORCES THERE
  • 00:23:02.170 --> 00:23:04.010
  • UNITED NATIONS' FORCES
  • 00:23:04.010 --> 00:23:05.110
  • SEPARATING NORTHERN CYPRUS AND
  • 00:23:05.190 --> 00:23:08.190
  • THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS.
  • 00:23:09.200 --> 00:23:12.200
  • ANYWAY, THESE TWO GUYS CAME UP
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:14.010
  • AND, BOY, THEY WERE ATTACKING ME
  • 00:23:14.010 --> 00:23:15.130
  • LIKE CRAZY.
  • 00:23:15.130 --> 00:23:16.140
  • YOU'RE NUTS, THIS IS MODERN
  • 00:23:16.140 --> 00:23:17.170
  • TIME.
  • 00:23:17.170 --> 00:23:19.230
  • THE CROSS IS OUTDATED.
  • 00:23:19.230 --> 00:23:21.270
  • THIS IS PASSE.
  • 00:23:22.190 --> 00:23:25.190
  • I WAS TRYING TO WITNESS.
  • 00:23:25.190 --> 00:23:27.150

  • YAKKING.
  • 00:23:30.270 --> 00:23:32.280
  • THE OTHER GUY SEEMED INTERESTED.
  • 00:23:32.280 --> 00:23:35.060
  • I THOUGHT, WHAT WILL I DO TO GET
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:36.210
  • THIS GUY SHUT UP SO I CAN TALK
  • 00:23:36.210 --> 00:23:38.090
  • TO THE ONE WHO WILL LISTEN TO
  • 00:23:38.090 --> 00:23:39.160
  • ME.
  • 00:23:39.160 --> 00:23:40.210
  • AND HE WAS STANDING RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:23:40.210 --> 00:23:42.280
  • AND I SAID, HEY, BROTHER, I
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:45.140
  • SAID, HERE, TAKE THE CROSS.
  • 00:23:45.140 --> 00:23:47.040
  • I JUST PUT THE CROSS ON HIS
  • 00:23:47.040 --> 00:23:47.250
  • SHOULDER.
  • 00:23:47.250 --> 00:23:49.100
  • - Laurie: TAKE A LAP.
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:51.180
  • - Arthur: AND, I TURNED TO HIS
  • 00:23:51.180 --> 00:23:52.260
  • FRIEND AND I STARTED TALKING TO
  • 00:23:52.260 --> 00:23:54.000
  • HIS FRIEND.
  • 00:23:54.000 --> 00:23:56.020
  • I TURNED WHERE I WOULDN'T LOOK
  • 00:23:56.020 --> 00:23:57.190
  • AT HIM SO HE WOULD HAND IT BACK.
  • 00:23:57.210 --> 00:24:00.230
  • I SHARED WITH HIM THE MESSAGE OF
  • 00:24:00.230 --> 00:24:01.160
  • JESUS.
  • 00:24:01.160 --> 00:24:03.190
  • THE SIMPLE MESSAGE THAT CHRIST
  • 00:24:03.190 --> 00:24:05.060
  • DIED AND BORN OF THE VIRGIN MARY
  • 00:24:05.060 --> 00:24:07.110
  • AND DIED FOR OUR SINS AND HE

  • WILL CLEANSE US AND WHATEVER.
  • 00:24:09.170 --> 00:24:11.220
  • AND AS I GOT READY TO PRAY WITH
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:16.250
  • HIM, I HEARD CRYING BEHIND ME.
  • 00:24:19.110 --> 00:24:22.110
  • I LOOKED, AND THIS MAN WAS
  • 00:24:22.110 --> 00:24:24.280
  • STANDING THERE WITH THE CROSS ON
  • 00:24:24.280 --> 00:24:26.220
  • HIS SHOULDER CRYING AND I SAID,
  • 00:24:27.180 --> 00:24:30.180
  • HE WAS AN ATHEIST.
  • 00:24:30.220 --> 00:24:33.220
  • THAT IS WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:24:33.220 --> 00:24:35.040
  • I SAID, WHY ARE YOU CRYING?
  • 00:24:35.040 --> 00:24:37.110
  • HE SAID, I HEARD WHAT YOU WERE
  • 00:24:38.080 --> 00:24:41.080
  • SAYING.
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:42.280
  • HE SAID, I'M IN ATHEIST.
  • 00:24:43.230 --> 00:24:46.230
  • I DON'T BELIEVE IN CHRIST.
  • 00:24:46.230 --> 00:24:48.060
  • BUT I DO.
  • 00:24:48.060 --> 00:24:51.020

  • 00:24:51.020 --> 00:24:51.270
  • ME.
  • 00:24:51.270 --> 00:24:52.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:52.200 --> 00:24:55.160
  • AND I PUT MY ARM AROUND HIM AND
  • 00:24:55.160 --> 00:24:57.030
  • PUT MY ARM AROUND HIS FRIEND AND
  • 00:24:57.030 --> 00:24:59.070
  • WE 3 PRAYED THERE TOGETHER AND
  • 00:24:59.070 --> 00:25:01.100
  • THEY WERE SAVED.
  • 00:25:03.060 --> 00:25:06.060
  • CHRIST'S CONVICTION OF HIMSELF.
  • 00:25:06.060 --> 00:25:08.290
  • IT WAS NOT ME OUTWITTING AN
  • 00:25:08.290 --> 00:25:09.270
  • ATHEIST, IT WAS NOT ME
  • 00:25:09.270 --> 00:25:12.150
  • OUTSMARTING HIM AND GIVING HIM
  • 00:25:12.150 --> 00:25:13.070
  • ALL THE STATISTICS THAT PROVE
  • 00:25:13.070 --> 00:25:14.200
  • THAT THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF

  • GOD, EVEN THOUGH THAT IS
  • 00:25:15.240 --> 00:25:17.090
  • IMPORTANT.
  • 00:25:17.090 --> 00:25:19.190
  • BUT IT WAS THE CONVICTION OF THE
  • 00:25:19.190 --> 00:25:20.170
  • HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:25:20.170 --> 00:25:23.010
  • AND WHEN PETER PREACHED ON THE

  • DAY OF PENTECOST, THE
  • 00:25:24.170 --> 00:25:25.230
  • HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTED AND PEOPLE
  • 00:25:25.230 --> 00:25:28.090

  • 00:25:44.090 --> 00:25:45.220
  • SUDDENLY THE HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS

  • TO THEM, THIS IS THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:25:48.060 --> 00:25:51.060
  • THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:25:52.290 --> 00:25:55.290

  • WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE.
  • 00:26:15.220 --> 00:26:18.220
  • IT IS NOT OUTSMARTING, IT IS
  • 00:26:18.220 --> 00:26:20.080
  • LETTING THE HOLY SPIRIT DO HIS

  • 00:46:54.200 --> 00:46:55.250
  • ARTHUR IS A RADICAL JESUS FREAK.
  • 00:46:55.250 --> 00:46:58.240
  • - Arthur: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:46:58.240 --> 00:46:59.190
  • BUT JESUS FREAKS-- THE JESUS
  • 00:46:59.190 --> 00:47:02.160
  • FREAKS WERE BEFORE THE JESUS
  • 00:47:02.160 --> 00:47:04.150
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:47:04.180 --> 00:47:07.180
  • THE EARLY NEWS REPORTS, THE NEWS

  • WE ARE FOR JESUS.
  • 00:47:11.120 --> 00:47:13.140
  • THEY CALLED US THE JESUS FREAKS.
  • 00:47:13.140 --> 00:47:15.250
  • LATER IN 1971, THE NEWS NAMED IT
  • 00:47:15.250 --> 00:47:18.220
  • JESUS PEOPLE.
  • 00:47:19.260 --> 00:47:22.260
  • SO THAT IS OKAY.
  • 00:47:22.260 --> 00:47:24.200
  • BUT THE EARLY DAY PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:47:24.200 --> 00:47:26.050
  • JESUS FREAKS.
  • 00:47:26.050 --> 00:47:27.080

  • NEW ZEALAND.
  • 00:51:51.270 --> 00:51:53.210
  • DENISE WAS UP THE ROAD IN A

  • VEHICLE.
  • 00:51:54.110 --> 00:51:57.100
  • AND I WAS WALKING FROM AUCKLAND
  • 00:51:57.220 --> 00:52:00.240
  • TO WELLINGTON.
  • 00:52:00.240 --> 00:52:02.270
  • ALONG THE SEASIDE AND THE ROAD
  • 00:52:02.270 --> 00:52:05.210

  • COLD.
  • 00:52:07.270 --> 00:52:10.270

  • JOGGING SUIT.
  • 00:52:12.190 --> 00:52:15.190

  • 00:52:17.050 --> 00:52:18.020
  • AND I SAW HER FACING THE WATER
  • 00:52:18.210 --> 00:52:21.210
  • BUT SHE WAS RUNNING ALONG.
  • 00:52:21.210 --> 00:52:23.190
  • AND I HAD TO CONCENTRATE ON THE
  • 00:52:23.210 --> 00:52:26.210
  • ROAD BECAUSE BIG TRUCKS WERE
  • 00:52:26.210 --> 00:52:28.180
  • COMING BY AND A NARROW ROAD.
  • 00:52:28.180 --> 00:52:30.230
  • I WAS GOING UP THIS MOUNTAINSIDE

  • SCREAMING.
  • 00:52:37.130 --> 00:52:40.130
  • I LOOKED UP AND I SAW THIS LADY
  • 00:52:40.130 --> 00:52:43.080
  • AND SHE HAD GONE UP A TRAIL THAT
  • 00:52:43.080 --> 00:52:46.000
  • SHE KNEW AND SHE WAS IN FRONT OF
  • 00:52:46.000 --> 00:52:47.210
  • ME RUNNING TOWARDS ME AND THE
  • 00:52:47.210 --> 00:52:48.230
  • CROSS.
  • 00:52:49.250 --> 00:52:52.250
  • AND I THOUGHT SHE WAS MAD.
  • 00:52:53.050 --> 00:52:56.050
  • BECAUSE SHE WAS RED IN THE FACE
  • 00:52:56.050 --> 00:52:57.100
  • AND OUT OF BREATH.
  • 00:52:57.100 --> 00:52:59.100
  • SHE SAID, THE CROSS, THE CROSS.
  • 00:52:59.160 --> 00:53:02.180
  • I SAID YES, IT IS NOT POLITICS
  • 00:53:02.180 --> 00:53:03.090
  • OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:53:03.090 --> 00:53:04.180
  • IT IS JUST ABOUT JESUS, MAN.
  • 00:53:04.180 --> 00:53:06.050
  • AND SHE GRABBED THE CROSS AND
  • 00:53:06.050 --> 00:53:09.010
  • SHE SAID, I GOT TO TELL YOU
  • 00:53:09.010 --> 00:53:10.000
  • THIS.
  • 00:53:12.060 --> 00:53:15.060
  • SHE SAID, I MOVED FROM
  • 00:53:15.060 --> 00:53:16.050
  • WELLINGTON OUT HERE ABOUT 3

  • AGO TO FIND LIFE.
  • 00:53:21.090 --> 00:53:22.000
  • AND SHE SAID, I HAVE DONE
  • 00:53:22.000 --> 00:53:22.290
  • EVERYTHING.
  • 00:53:25.080 --> 00:53:28.080
  • I CAME OUT TODAY TO DIE.
  • 00:53:28.240 --> 00:53:31.240
  • I'M GOING TO RUN INTO THE SEA
  • 00:53:31.240 --> 00:53:32.220
  • AND DROWN.
  • 00:53:32.280 --> 00:53:35.280
  • AND SHE SAID I TOOK MY LAST RUN
  • 00:53:35.280 --> 00:53:37.100
  • BECAUSE I ENJOYED IT.
  • 00:53:37.100 --> 00:53:39.120
  • AND SHE SAID, I STOPPED AND I
  • 00:53:41.010 --> 00:53:44.010
  • LOOKED AT THE WATER, AND I SAID,
  • 00:53:44.010 --> 00:53:45.200
  • GOD, IF THERE IS SUCH A THING,
  • 00:53:45.200 --> 00:53:47.050
  • SHOW ME SOMETHING OR I DIE.
  • 00:53:49.120 --> 00:53:52.120
  • SHE SAID, I TURNED AND LOOKED
  • 00:53:52.120 --> 00:53:53.240
  • AND I SAW THE CROSS GOING UP THE
  • 00:53:53.240 --> 00:53:56.190
  • MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:53:56.280 --> 00:53:59.280
  • AND SHE SAID, I COME TO THE

  • CROSS.
  • 00:54:00.200 --> 00:54:02.010
  • I NEED LIFE.
  • 00:54:02.150 --> 00:54:05.150
  • AND I SHARED WITH HER ABOUT
  • 00:54:05.150 --> 00:54:06.050
  • JESUS.
  • 00:54:07.090 --> 00:54:10.090
  • AND SHE PRAYED AND INVITED
  • 00:54:10.090 --> 00:54:10.280
  • JESUS, A SIMPLE PRAYER, JESUS,
  • 00:54:10.280 --> 00:54:12.060
  • COME INTO MY HEART, FORGIVE MY
  • 00:54:12.060 --> 00:54:14.210
  • SINS, I REPENT, PUT MY NAME IN
  • 00:54:14.250 --> 00:54:17.250

  • MY HOME IS HEAVEN.
  • 00:54:19.090 --> 00:54:21.180
  • I'M NOT ASHAMED OF YOU.
  • 00:54:21.280 --> 00:54:24.280
  • SHE PRAYED AND WHEN SHE PRAYED,
  • 00:54:24.280 --> 00:54:27.270
  • SHE AND WE ARE CLOSING OUT
  • 00:54:27.270 --> 00:54:28.200
  • ALMOST LIKE, SHE FELL INTO MY
  • 00:54:28.200 --> 00:54:30.040
  • ARMS AND SHE SAID, NOW I HAVE
  • 00:54:30.040 --> 00:54:32.240
