  • THAT EVERYBODY HAS A BILLY GRAHAM STORY.
  • 00:05:51.280 --> 00:05:54.160

  • SO I'M GONNA TELL YOU THAT ONE.
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:58.040

  • I WAS DEVASTATED.
  • 00:06:01.270 --> 00:06:03.080
  • I FLOUNDERED.
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:04.230
  • I DID A LOT WRONG.
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:07.180
  • THE RUG WAS PULLED OUT FROM UNDER ME.
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:09.230
  • MY FAMILY THOUGHT IT'D BE A GOOD IDEA FOR ME TO MOVE AWAY.
  • 00:06:09.250 --> 00:06:12.270
  • TO GET A FRESH START SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:15.170
  • SO I DECIDED TO LIVE NEAR MY OLDER SISTER
  • 00:06:15.190 --> 00:06:18.250
  • AND HER FAMILY.
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:20.140
  • AND NEAR A GOOD CHURCH.
  • 00:06:20.160 --> 00:06:23.170
  • THE PASTOR OF THAT CHURCH INTRODUCED ME
  • 00:06:23.190 --> 00:06:24.260
  • TO A HANDSOME WIDOWER.
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:27.070
  • AND WE BEGAN TO DATE FAST AND FURIOUSLY.
  • 00:06:27.090 --> 00:06:30.110
  • MY CHILDREN DIDN'T LIKE HIM
  • 00:06:30.130 --> 00:06:31.290
  • BUT I THOUGHT THEY WERE ALMOST GROWN.
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:35.190
  • THEY COULDN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:36.200
  • I KNEW WHAT WAS BEST FOR MY LIFE.
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:39.070
  • SO BEING STUBBORN, WILLFUL AND SINFUL,
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:45.010
  • I MARRIED A MAN, THIS MAN, ON NEW YEARS EVE.
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:48.090
  • AND WITHIN 24 HOURS, I KNEW I'D MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:52.190
  • AFTER FIVE WEEKS, I FLED.
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:55.100
  • I WAS AFRAID OF HIM.
  • 00:06:55.120 --> 00:06:57.110
  • WHAT WAS I GONNA DO?
  • 00:06:57.130 --> 00:06:59.060
  • I WANTED TO GO TALK TO MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER.
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:03.070
  • AND MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT WE LIVE ON THE SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:06.270
  • AND AS I WOUND MYSELF UP THE MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:07:06.290 --> 00:07:09.020
  • I ROUNDED THE LAST BEND IN MY FATHER'S DRIVEWAY
  • 00:07:09.040 --> 00:07:12.050
  • AND MY FATHER WAS STANDING THERE, WAITING FOR ME.
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:14.240
  • AWAY MY SIN
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:18.150
  • NOTHING BY THE--
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:20.160
  • AS I GOT OUT OF THE CAR,
  • 00:07:20.180 --> 00:07:23.280
  • HE WRAPPED HIS ARMS AROUND ME.
  • 00:07:24.000 --> 00:07:25.040
  • HE SAID WELCOME HOME.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:28.040
  • THERE WAS NO SHAME.
  • 00:07:28.060 --> 00:07:29.180
  • THERE WAS NO BLAME, THERE WAS NO CONDEMNATION.
  • 00:07:29.200 --> 00:07:32.010
  • JUST UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
  • 00:07:32.030 --> 00:07:35.240
  • AND YOU KNOW, MY FATHER WAS NOT GOD
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:38.240
  • BUT HE SHOWED ME WHAT GOD WAS LIKE THAT DAY.
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:41.180
  • WHEN WE COME TO GOD WITH OUR SIN,
  • 00:07:41.200 --> 00:07:43.260
  • OUR BROKENNESS, OUR FAILURE,
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:47.070
  • OUR PAIN AND OUR HURT,
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:49.080
  • GOD SAYS WELCOME HOME.
  • 00:07:49.100 --> 00:07:51.080
  • AND THAT INVITATION IS OPEN FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:54.190
  • WHAT CAN WASH AWAY MY SIN
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:08:02.010
  • NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:08.160
  • - IT IS OFTEN SAID THAT SOME DAY,
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:10.270
  • YOU'LL READ THAT BILLY GRAHAM IS DEAD.
  • 00:08:10.290 --> 00:08:12.230
  • HE SAID, "DON'T YOU BELIEVE ONE WORD OF IT."
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:16.060
  • HE SAID, "I'LL BE MORE ALIVE THAN I AM NOW."
  • 00:08:16.080 --> 00:08:23.290
  • OH, PRECIOUS IS THE FLOW
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:30.100
  • - I WAS REMINDED,
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:32.070
  • WHEN I HEARD THAT MY BROTHER DIED,
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:35.180
  • OF THE SONG THAT THE CHOIRS USED TO SING,
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:39.280
  • HEAVEN CAME DOWN AND FILLED MY SOUL WITH GLORY.
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:44.190
  • - AND I PLEDGE TO YOU, DADDY,
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:46.140
  • THAT IN VIEW OF HIS APPEARING,
  • 00:08:46.160 --> 00:08:48.110
  • AND IN FRONT OF ALL OF THESE WITNESSES,
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:50.030
  • I WILL PREACH THE WORD!
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:52.110
  • I WILL DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST,
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:54.050
  • I WILL SHARE THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:08:54.070 --> 00:08:56.060
  • AND I WILL RUN MY RACE AND LIVE MY LIFE
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:59.000
  • SO THAT FIVE MINUTES BEFORE I SEE JESUS
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:01.080
  • I HAVE NO REGRETS.
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:02.210
  • I WILL LIVE MY LIFE TO EXALT AND GLORIFY THE NAME
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:05.180
  • OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:09:05.200 --> 00:09:08.000
  • NO OTHER FOUNT I KNOW
  • 00:09:08.020 --> 00:09:14.120
  • - I'M NOT BILLY GRAHAM, I'LL NEVER BE BILLY GRAHAM.
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:16.210
  • LOVE MY FATHER BUT I'M GONNA PREACH THE SAME
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:18.250
  • MESSAGE THAT BILLY GRAHAM PREACHED.
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:21.000
  • PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME, "FRANKLIN, ARE YOU GONNA CHANGE
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:23.260
  • THE BILLY GRAHAM ASSOCIATION?"
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:25.000
  • I'M NOT CHANGING NOTHING.
  • 00:09:25.020 --> 00:09:26.190
  • BECAUSE THE BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELIST ASSOCIATION
  • 00:09:26.210 --> 00:09:29.020
  • IS ABOUT PREACHING THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.130
  • BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:38.030
  • - I COME TO TALK ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:40.200
  • REALLY GOOD PEOPLE NEED GOD.
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:42.040
  • LOOK AT THE CRIME IN THE STREETS AND EVERYTHING ELSE, WHY?
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:44.140
  • BECAUSE WE LEFT GOD OUT.
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:46.200
  • I WAS JUST TELLING BROTHER CLIFTON IN THE BACK,
  • 00:09:46.220 --> 00:09:48.170
  • THAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH THE CHURCH.
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:50.190
  • WE GOTTA BRING GOD OUT THE CHURCH,
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:52.190
  • TAKE HIM TO THE CUBS GAME, TAKE HIM TO THE BEARS GAME.
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:56.150
  • YOU GOTTA TAKE GOD WHEREVER WE GO, THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.
  • 00:09:56.170 --> 00:09:59.230
  • DON'T JUST SAY I'M GONNA GO TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:02.040
  • GOD'S SPOKEN, WE ARE THE CHURCH.
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:04.150
  • EVERYWHERE WE GO WE'RE SUPPOSE TO TELL PEOPLE.
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:07.000
  • ONE OF MY PRAYER, I SAID LORD,
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:08.090
  • I PRAY THAT WHEN THEY SEE ME, LET THEM SEE YOU.
  • 00:10:08.110 --> 00:10:11.110
  • I PRAY THAT WHEN THEY HEAR ME, LET THEM HEAR YOU.
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:14.010
  • - JESUS SPOKE TO ME SO CLEARLY.
  • 00:10:14.030 --> 00:10:17.120
  • "ARTHUR, TAKE THE CROSS, PUT IT ON YOUR SHOULDER
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:20.200
  • "AND CARRY IT ON FOOT.
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:23.180
  • "AND IDENTIFY MY MESSAGE WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE."
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:31.000
  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:42.150
  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:50.010
  • - I HEARD YOU SPEAKING THERE SAYING,
  • 00:10:50.030 --> 00:10:52.070
  • HOW DO YOU WALK AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:10:52.090 --> 00:10:54.180
  • EVERY NATION.
  • 00:10:54.200 --> 00:10:56.030
  • EVERY ISLAND GROUP.
  • 00:10:56.050 --> 00:10:58.080
  • EVERY TERRITORY.
  • 00:10:58.100 --> 00:11:00.270
  • AND YOU SAID, "ONE STEP AT A TIME."
  • 00:11:00.290 --> 00:11:04.190
  • AND THE STEPS ARE TOUGHER NOW.
  • 00:11:04.210 --> 00:11:10.290
  • THE MENISCUS IN MY LEFT KNEE IS ALMOST ALL GONE.
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:20.120
  • AND
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:23.070
  • IT IS PAINFUL TO WALK.
  • 00:11:23.090 --> 00:11:27.090
  • I WANNA BE HONEST WITH YOU.
  • 00:11:27.110 --> 00:11:29.270
  • THERE ARE CHALLENGES BUT IT'S WORTH IT.
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:32.280
  • YOU'RE THE VOICE THAT WILL BRING US CLOSER
  • 00:11:33.000 --> 00:11:36.130
  • YOU'RE THE VOICE THAT WILL BRING US HOME
  • 00:11:36.150 --> 00:11:40.050
  • SPEAK TO US
  • 00:11:40.070 --> 00:11:43.210
  • SPEAK TO US
  • 00:11:43.230 --> 00:11:47.110
  • - IT'S A POWERFUL THING TO BE SENSITIVE
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:50.190
  • TO THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:11:50.210 --> 00:11:51.270
  • THAT YOU CAN JUST HAVE THE GENTLE FLUTTERS
  • 00:11:51.290 --> 00:11:54.130
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:55.120
  • HE DOESN'T HAVE TO SCREAM.
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:11:56.190
  • GOD SELDOM SCREAMS.
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:58.250
  • ALMOST NEVER.
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:00.040
  • HE WHISPERS.
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:01.230
  • THE STILL-SMALL VOICE.
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:03.140
  • HE WANTS US NOT TO HAVE TO HAVE BELYING.
  • 00:12:03.160 --> 00:12:06.240
  • NOT TO HAVE TO HAVE THE LIFE JUST BEING TORN ALL TO PIECES
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:10.120
  • AND THE EGO TEARING OUR LIVES UP.
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:12.290
  • THOSE THINGS WILL COME BECAUSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES,
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:15.230
  • HE CHASTENETH.
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:17.100
  • AND IF HE HAS TO DO THOSE THINGS TO GET YOU
  • 00:12:17.120 --> 00:12:19.110
  • ON THE RIGHT PATH, HE'S GOT LIONS HE CAN RELEASE, TRUST ME.
  • 00:12:19.130 --> 00:12:22.270
  • -[MAN] WOW.
  • 00:12:22.290 --> 00:12:24.020
  • - BUT HIS GREATEST DESIRE,
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:25.190
  • THIS IS THE TENDERNESS OF GOD,
  • 00:12:25.210 --> 00:12:28.060
  • THAT HIS GREATEST DESIRE IS JUST TO FLUTTER.
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:30.220
  • JUST TO MAKE US SENSITIVE
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:32.220
  • THAT, OH, I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE SOME MIGHTY THING.
  • 00:12:32.240 --> 00:12:36.290
  • I'M READING THE WORD, I'M PRAYING,
  • 00:12:37.010 --> 00:12:38.190
  • I'M IN TOUCH WITH HIS VOICE AND JUST THE FLUTTER.
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:41.190
  • YOU'RE THE VOICE THAT WILL BRING US CLOSER
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:45.040
  • YOU'RE THE VOICE THAT WILL BRING US HOME
  • 00:12:45.060 --> 00:12:48.160
  • SPEAK TO US
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:52.100
  • SPEAK TO US
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:56.030
  • YOU'RE THE VOICE THAT WILL BRING US CLOSER
  • 00:12:56.050 --> 00:12:59.220
  • YOU'RE THE VOICE THAT WILL BRING US HOME
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:03.080
  • SPEAK TO US
  • 00:13:03.100 --> 00:13:06.250
  • SPEAK TO US
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:10.030
  • YOU SET US FREE
  • 00:13:10.050 --> 00:13:17.010
  • AND WE'VE COME TO SEE
  • 00:13:17.030 --> 00:13:22.240
  • YOUR BEAUTY AND YOUR GLORY
  • 00:13:22.260 --> 00:13:26.230
  • - I THINK IT'S SUPER SIMPLE.
  • 00:13:26.250 --> 00:13:27.290
  • I THINK GOD, HE WIRED US TO TALK TO HIM.
  • 00:13:28.010 --> 00:13:30.020
  • HE WIRED US FOR COMMUNICATION AND CONNECTION.
  • 00:13:30.040 --> 00:13:32.150
  • AND WE'RE WIRED BIOLOGICALLY,
  • 00:13:32.170 --> 00:13:35.130
  • THEOLOGICALLY, OF COURSE, WE'RE SPIRIT,
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:36.290
  • AND THEN ALSO NEUROLOGICALLY TO HEAR FROM GOD
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:38.250
  • AND CONNECT TO GOD IN REAL WAYS.
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:40.160
  • AND IN THE BIBLE, THERE'S ALL THESE EXAMPLES.
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:42.280
  • ONE THIRD OF THE BIBLE IS DEDICATED TO THE PROPHETIC.
  • 00:13:43.000 --> 00:13:45.100
  • THERE'S ALL THESE GREAT EXAMPLES OF PROPHESY
  • 00:13:45.120 --> 00:13:47.210
  • AND HOW GOD SPEAKS BUT THERE HASN'T BEEN
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.250
  • CONTEMPORARY EXAMPLES, ENOUGH AT LEAST.
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:51.270
  • THERE HASN'T BEEN ENOUGH CONTEMPORARY EXAMPLES
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:53.080
  • OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SEEING THE REAL, RAW POWER OF GOD
  • 00:13:53.100 --> 00:13:56.000
  • IN EVERYDAY SITUATIONS,
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.150
  • WHERE THERE'S EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE CONNECTED,
  • 00:13:57.170 --> 00:14:00.230
  • LIKE WHERE IT ACTUALLY SHIFTS PEOPLE OR CHANGES THE WAY
  • 00:14:00.250 --> 00:14:03.220
  • THAT THEY THINK, CHANGES THE WAY THAT THEY RELATE TO GOD.
  • 00:14:03.240 --> 00:14:06.070
  • AND WE'VE HAD GOOD EXAMPLES
  • 00:14:06.090 --> 00:14:07.180
  • OF THE SUPERNATURAL IN THE WORLD
  • 00:14:07.200 --> 00:14:09.180
  • THAT WE SEE ON MOST MOVIES THAT ARE DOING WELL RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:12.230
  • SUPER HEROES AND ARE LIKE PSYCHIC PHENOMENONS.
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:15.140
  • THESE KINDS OF THINGS, WE SEE THAT.
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:16.220
  • SO THE WORLD'S REALLY HUNGRY.
  • 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:18.100
  • BUT THE CHURCH HAS BEEN A LITTLE BIT OUTSIDE THE CURB
  • 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:20.110
  • AS FAR AS BELIEVING FOR THESE KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:14:20.130 --> 00:14:22.180
  • AND A LOT OF TIMES WHEN IT'S BEEN DONE,
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:24.010
  • IT'S BEEN DONE WITH EXCESS AND CRAZINESS.
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:25.150
  • THE PROPHETIC IS JUST SIMPLY
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:27.010
  • RELATING GOD'S THOUGHTS AND HEART
  • 00:14:27.030 --> 00:14:28.100
  • AND HIS INTENTIONS ON THE EARTH TODAY.
  • 00:14:28.120 --> 00:14:30.140
  • - SO IF YOU WANT TO SENSE THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:32.210
  • YOU NEED TO GET INTO HIS WORD.
  • 00:14:32.230 --> 00:14:34.100
  • DEAL WITH ALL FEAR BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE FEAR,
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:37.050
  • ALL YOU'LL SENSE IS FEARFUL THINGS AND THINK THAT IT'S GOD
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:40.250
  • SAYING NO, WHEN IT'S JUST YOUR FEAR.
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:42.230
  • BUT AS GOD'S WORD RENEWS YOUR MIND,
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:45.050
  • GETS INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:14:45.070 --> 00:14:46.070
  • YOU'LL SENSE CLEAR DIRECTION.
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:49.000
  • OFTEN, WHAT TO SAY TO SOMEBODY.
  • 00:14:49.020 --> 00:14:51.050
  • YOU'LL JUST HAVE THIS SENSING
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:52.190
  • OF THIS PERSON NEEDS HELP IN THAT AREA.
  • 00:14:52.210 --> 00:14:55.080
  • OR THERE'S TIMES WHEN I NEEDED PROTECTION
  • 00:14:55.100 --> 00:14:57.180
  • AND GOD WOULD SAY DON'T GO THROUGH THAT DOOR.
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:14:59.220
  • AND I JUST KNEW IT FROM THE INSIDE.
  • 00:14:59.240 --> 00:15:01.050
  • I DIDN'T HEAR AN AUDIBLE VOICE,
  • 00:15:01.070 --> 00:15:02.200
  • I JUST SENSED THIS FEELING, THIS DEEP FEELING.
  • 00:15:02.220 --> 00:15:06.170
  • DON'T GO THERE, GO OUT THERE.
  • 00:15:06.190 --> 00:15:08.160
  • AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO SENSE THAT,
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:10.180
  • YOU'RE BEGINNING TO HEAR GOD AND SENSE HIM.
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:13.170
  • AND AS YOU PRACTICE LEARNING TO SENSE GOD
  • 00:15:13.190 --> 00:15:16.180
  • AND OBEY HIS DIRECTION,
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:18.160
  • YOU WILL BEGIN TO HEAR HIM CLEARER AND CLEARER.
  • 00:15:18.180 --> 00:15:21.260
  • - THERE'S A DISTINCT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHERE GOD IS
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:25.020
  • AND WHERE GOD LIVES.
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:27.290
  • HE IS EVERYWHERE, OMNIPRESENT.
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:30.190
  • BUT HE LIVES IN WORSHIP.
  • 00:15:30.210 --> 00:15:32.160
  • HE MAKES HIMSELF KNOWN IN WORSHIP.
  • 00:15:32.180 --> 00:15:34.280
  • THAT'S WHY LIFTING YOUR HANDS IS NOT SOME SMALL THING
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:38.010
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU LIFT YOUR HANDS, YOU'RE SAYING,
  • 00:15:38.030 --> 00:15:40.070
  • DADDY, YOU CAN HAVE WHAT EVER I GOT.
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:43.090
  • FATHER, I GIVE IT ALL TO YOU.
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:45.230
  • I MAY NOT BE THE BEST SINGER,
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:47.240
  • BUT I'M GONNA GIVE YOU WHAT I HAVE.
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:49.190
  • I MAY NOT BE,
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:51.100
  • I MAY NOT KNOW EVERY SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:53.010
  • BUT WHAT I HAVE I GIVE TO YOU.
  • 00:15:53.030 --> 00:15:54.260
  • AND IF I CAN'T SING, I CAN SHOUT.
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:56.260
  • AND IF I CAN'T SHOUT, I CAN DANCE.
  • 00:15:56.280 --> 00:15:59.070
  • AND IF I CAN'T DANCE, I CAN STOMP MY FEET.
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:02.050
  • BUT WHATEVER IT IS, I'M GIVING IT TO YOU.
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:04.190
  • I'M COMING AFTER YOU AND I WILL NOT STOP!
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:07.120
  • [AUDIENCE CHEERS]
  • 00:16:07.140 --> 00:16:09.060
  • ARE THERE ANY RELENTLESS WORSHIPERS IN HERE?
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:11.110
  • [CHEERS]
  • 00:16:11.130 --> 00:16:14.030
  • IF THE STARS WERE MADE TO WORSHIP, SO WILL I
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:21.200
  • I CAN SEE YOUR HEART IN EVERYTHING YOU'VE MADE
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:29.030
  • EVERY BURNING STAR, A SIGNAL FIRE OF GRACE
  • 00:16:29.050 --> 00:16:36.230
  • IF CREATION SINGS YOUR PRAISES, SO WILL I
  • 00:16:36.250 --> 00:16:42.100
  • -[MAN] ANGUS, THANK YOU FOR THE INVITATION TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:46.260
  • WALK THE GROUND WHERE A LOT OF YOUR STORY,
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:51.150
  • THAT NOW IS A GLOBAL STORY, STARTED HERE.
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:56.030
  • -[ANGUS] THAT'S CORRECT.
  • 00:16:56.050 --> 00:16:57.050
  • -[MAN] THE FIRST MIRACLES WERE HERE.
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:16:58.120
  • -[ANGUS] THAT'S RIGHT SIR, ON THIS GROUND.
  • 00:16:58.140 --> 00:16:59.270
  • - THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW GOD DO SOMETHING AMAZING,
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:04.140
  • THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW HIM DO MIRACLES.
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:08.120
  • WE'RE STEPPING OVER THE SAME STONES, AS IT WERE,
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:13.120
  • THAT STARTED YOUR STORY.
  • 00:17:13.140 --> 00:17:15.020
  • AND GOD MET YOU HERE. -[ANGUS] THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:17:15.040 --> 00:17:16.240
  • ANGUS? -[ANGUS] VERY MUCH SIR.
  • 00:17:16.260 --> 00:17:17.290
  • - AND I WANNA SAY TO YOU
  • 00:17:18.010 --> 00:17:19.130
  • THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS.
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:23.160
  • HE'LL USE ANYBODY.
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:25.010
  • HE'S USING MATT CROUCH,
  • 00:17:25.030 --> 00:17:27.010
  • HE'S USING AN OLD FARMER, ANGUS BUCHAN.

  • BECAUSE HE WAS POSSESSED WITH MANY DEVILS.

  • HAD 6000 DEMONS LIVING INSIDE HIM.
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:25.250
  • HE WOULD RIP HIS CLOTHES OFF IN THE TOMBS
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:28.250
  • AND TAKE STONES AND CUT HIMSELF.
  • 00:18:28.270 --> 00:18:32.090

  • TO TALK ABOUT ENERGY 10 YEARS AGO
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:34.140

  • "HEY, YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN, RIGHT?"
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:37.120
  • I GO, "UH, YEAH."

  • AND HE JUST TOTALLY THROWS ME UNDER THE BUS.
  • 00:20:47.140 --> 00:20:49.280

  • THAT I WAS REALLY JACKED UP,
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:18.100
  • I WAS DEPRESSED, SUICIDAL.
  • 00:21:18.120 --> 00:21:20.000
  • COMING IN, THE ONLY TIME I USED JESUS NAME WAS TO CURSE.
  • 00:21:20.020 --> 00:21:23.140
  • I WENT IN ACTUALLY HATING GOD.
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:26.000
  • -[MAN] WOW.
  • 00:21:26.020 --> 00:21:27.230

  • THAT MAYBE I COULD LOVE THIS GOD.
  • 00:21:29.220 --> 00:21:31.260
  • AND SO HE HAD A STAND UP, IF YOU WANT JESUS, STAND UP.
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:35.180
  • SO I STOOD UP.
  • 00:21:35.200 --> 00:21:37.130
  • AND HE PRAYED A PRAYER,
  • 00:21:37.150 --> 00:21:39.010
  • PROBABLY A TRADITIONAL SINNERS PRAYER.
  • 00:21:39.030 --> 00:21:41.040
  • NOTHING REALLY REGISTERED SO, I DID,
  • 00:21:41.060 --> 00:21:42.100
  • I WENT UP TO HIM AFTERWARDS AND I'M WEEPING.
  • 00:21:42.120 --> 00:21:45.040
  • I'M THIS 260 POUND MIDDLE LINE BACKER JUST LOSING IT,
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:49.040
  • AND I SAID, "I DON'T KNOW ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE
  • 00:21:49.060 --> 00:21:50.190
  • "YOU'VE SAID TONIGHT BUT I NEED THIS JESUS
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:53.050
  • "YOU TALKED ABOUT, I NEED HIM REALLY, REALLY BAD.
  • 00:21:53.070 --> 00:21:55.070
  • "WHAT DO I DO?"
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.100
  • AND HE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, "PRAY."
  • 00:21:56.120 --> 00:21:58.090
  • I LOOKED AT HIM, I WAS LIKE MAN, "YOU PRAY!
  • 00:21:58.110 --> 00:22:01.180
  • "YOU'RE THE PRO HERE!"
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:03.030
  • HE'S LIKE, "JUST PRAY, WHATEVER'S ON YOUR HEART."
  • 00:22:03.050 --> 00:22:04.180
  • SO WHAT LEAPT OUT OF ME WAS, LORD, MAKE THIS SO REAL.
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:09.120
  • IT BETTER BE SO REAL THAT I DON'T GO BACK.
  • 00:22:09.140 --> 00:22:11.240
  • THE NEXT DAY, I WAKE UP.
  • 00:22:11.260 --> 00:22:13.200
  • I GO GET WATER-BAPTIZED.
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:15.030
  • MY WIFE WAS NOT FEELING WELL,
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:17.050
  • SHE ENDED UP GOING INTO LABOR.
  • 00:22:17.070 --> 00:22:18.150
  • SO TWO DAYS AFTER WE GAVE UP,
  • 00:22:18.170 --> 00:22:20.120
  • BOTH OF US GOT SAVED THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:22:20.140 --> 00:22:22.100

  • BOTH EXPERIENCED PEACE.
  • 00:22:27.250 --> 00:22:29.070
  • WE LITERALLY WENT OVER THERE AS ENEMIES
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:31.030
  • AND CAME OUT IN LOVE, I'M NOT EXAGGERATING.
  • 00:22:31.050 --> 00:22:33.160
  • HE DIDN'T JUST SAVE US, HE PUT NEW HEARTS IN US

  • FOR EACH OTHER.
  • 00:22:36.230 --> 00:22:38.010
  • SHE GOES INTO LABOR, WE HAVE OUR FIRST BABY
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:40.220
  • TWO DAYS AFTER.
  • 00:22:40.240 --> 00:22:42.040
  • I KEEP FIGHTING VOICES IN MY MIND
  • 00:22:42.060 --> 00:22:45.180
  • THAT SAY I'M NOT ENOUGH
  • 00:22:45.200 --> 00:22:54.250

  • 10 YEARS BEFORE MY FATHER DIED,
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:42.270
  • WE'D BE SITTING ON THE FRONT ROW AT NIGHT
  • 00:23:42.290 --> 00:23:44.210
  • AT THE CHURCH WHEN MY DAD WAS SPEAKING,
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:46.100
  • WHEN I WASN'T UP IN THE TV BOOTH,
  • 00:23:46.120 --> 00:23:48.280
  • AND VICTORIA WOULD NUDGE ME AND SHE SAID,

  • "JOEL, ONE DAY YOU'RE GONNA PASTOR THIS CHURCH."
  • 00:23:50.110 --> 00:23:53.020
  • AND THAT WOULD MAKE ME MAD.
  • 00:23:53.040 --> 00:23:54.240
  • CAUSE I'D SAY, "NO I'M NOT, VICTORIA,
  • 00:23:54.260 --> 00:23:56.030
  • "I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO PREACH."
  • 00:23:56.050 --> 00:23:57.200
  • SHE'D SAY, "OH YEAH, JUST PREACH TO THEM

  • [CROWD LAUGHS]
  • 00:24:00.110 --> 00:24:01.220
  • BUT I MEAN THIS SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:03.030
  • SHE HAD TOLD ME SO MANY TIMES
  • 00:24:03.050 --> 00:24:05.220
  • THAT I COULD PASTOR THE CHURCH,
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:07.110
  • I BELIEVE THAT WHEN MY FATHER DIED
  • 00:24:07.130 --> 00:24:09.140
  • AND I KNEW I WAS SUPPOSE TO,
  • 00:24:09.160 --> 00:24:10.250
  • I BELIEVE THAT'S ONE REASON I COULD STEP UP TO DO IT.
  • 00:24:10.270 --> 00:24:12.200
  • SO HERE'S THE PRINCIPLE:
  • 00:24:12.220 --> 00:24:13.270
  • YOU HAVE TO CALL OUT THE SEEDS OF GREATNESS
  • 00:24:13.290 --> 00:24:16.180
  • IN THE PEOPLE GOD PUT IN YOUR OWN LIFE.
  • 00:24:16.200 --> 00:24:18.270
  • THEY HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE PUSHING THEM DOWN
  • 00:24:18.290 --> 00:24:21.110
  • TELLING THEM WHAT THEY CAN'T BECOME,
  • 00:24:21.130 --> 00:24:22.270
  • TELLING THEM HOW THEY'RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT.
  • 00:24:22.290 --> 00:24:24.190
  • WHY DON'T YOU BE THAT ONE TO LIFT THEM UP?
  • 00:24:24.210 --> 00:24:27.000
  • SOMETIMES YOU CAN SEE THINGS IN PEOPLE
  • 00:24:27.020 --> 00:24:29.150
  • THAT THEY CAN'T SEE IN THEMSELVES.
  • 00:24:29.170 --> 00:24:31.080
  • I DIDN'T SEE THAT IN ME.
  • 00:24:31.100 --> 00:24:32.230
  • AND SO THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT GOD HAS PUT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:24:32.250 --> 00:24:35.070
  • THAT YOU CAN HELP PUSH THEM INTO THEIR DESTINY.
  • 00:24:35.090 --> 00:24:37.190
  • SOMETIMES, IT'S JUST A SIMPLE WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:24:37.210 --> 00:24:41.080
  • YOU CAN TELL THEM WHAT THEY CAN BECOME
  • 00:24:41.100 --> 00:24:42.240
  • AND HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED,
  • 00:24:42.260 --> 00:24:44.080
  • WHEN YOU HELP SOMEBODY ELSE RISE HIGHER,
  • 00:24:44.100 --> 00:24:46.090
  • GOD WILL ALWAYS HELP YOU RISE HIGHER.
  • 00:24:46.110 --> 00:24:48.190
  • YOU SAY I AM LOVED WHEN I CAN'T FEEL A THING
  • 00:24:48.210 --> 00:24:55.020
  • YOU SAY I AM STRONG WHEN I THINK I AM WEAK
  • 00:24:55.040 --> 00:25:01.180
  • YOU SAY I AM HELD WHEN I AM FALLING SHORT
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:08.080
  • WHEN I DON'T BELONG, OH YOU SAY THAT I AM YOURS
  • 00:25:08.100 --> 00:25:15.060
  • AND I BELIEVE
  • 00:25:15.080 --> 00:25:18.080
  • OH I BELIEVE
  • 00:25:18.100 --> 00:25:20.280
  • WHAT YOU SAY OF ME
  • 00:25:21.000 --> 00:25:25.010
  • I BELIEVE
  • 00:25:25.030 --> 00:25:28.240
  • THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS NOW IS
  • 00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:32.110
  • EVERYTHING YOU THINK OF ME
  • 00:25:32.130 --> 00:25:40.180
  • - LIKE IF SOMEBODY KEEPS STARING AT YOUR WIFE

  • 00:34:11.150 --> 00:34:13.280
  • JUST PRAY OUT OF YOUR HEART LIKE A LITTLE CHILD.
  • 00:34:14.000 --> 00:34:16.090
  • MY FRIEND WAS A METHODIST PREACHER,
  • 00:34:16.110 --> 00:34:18.070
  • AND HE HAD A BAD STOMACHACHE.
  • 00:34:18.090 --> 00:34:20.010
  • AND HE SAID TO HIS LITTLE GIRL, SHE'S THREE YEARS OLD,
  • 00:34:20.030 --> 00:34:22.220
  • "PRAY FOR DADDY, I HAVE A STOMACHACHE."
  • 00:34:22.240 --> 00:34:24.130
  • AND SHE SAID "FATHER, BLESS THIS FOOD."
  • 00:34:24.150 --> 00:34:28.160
  • SO YOU DON'T KNOW HOW, HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO PRAY,
  • 00:34:28.180 --> 00:34:31.010
  • I MEAN JUST PRAY.
  • 00:34:31.030 --> 00:34:32.080
  • JESUS HEARS YOU, HE JUST LOVES FOR YOU TO PRAY
  • 00:34:32.100 --> 00:34:34.110
  • NO MATTER HOW YOU PRAY.
  • 00:34:34.130 --> 00:34:35.150
  • -[WOMAN] NO MATTER HOW YOU PRAY.
  • 00:34:35.170 --> 00:34:37.010
  • WE'VE BEEN LIBERATED
  • 00:34:37.030 --> 00:34:43.150
  • FROM OUR BONDAGE
  • 00:34:43.170 --> 00:34:50.000
  • WERE THE SONS AND THE DAUGHTERS
  • 00:34:50.020 --> 00:34:56.130
  • LET US SING OUR FREEDOM
  • 00:34:56.150 --> 00:35:02.160
  • - PRAYER IS THE KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE RESOURCES OF HEAVEN
  • 00:35:02.180 --> 00:35:07.070
  • SO THAT THEY CAN BE UNLEASHED ON PLANET EARTH.
  • 00:35:07.090 --> 00:35:11.080
  • PRAYER'S THE KEY HE'S ACTUALLY GIVEN YOU
  • 00:35:11.100 --> 00:35:13.190
  • TO GET ALL THE GOOD STUFF DOWN HERE.
  • 00:35:13.210 --> 00:35:16.050
  • CAUSE I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:35:16.070 --> 00:35:17.090
  • BUT I DON'T WANNA WAIT TO GET TO HEAVEN
  • 00:35:17.110 --> 00:35:19.190
  • TO EXPERIENCE ALL THAT GOD HAS FOR ME, ANY BITS OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:35:19.210 --> 00:35:23.020
  • HE PLANS TO GIVE ME ON EARTH, I WANT IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:35:23.040 --> 00:35:26.090
  • PRAYER ACCESSES THE BITS OF HEAVEN
  • 00:35:26.110 --> 00:35:28.260
  • HE INTENDS TO GIVE YOU NOW.
  • 00:35:28.280 --> 00:35:31.010
  • AND PRAYER, LISTEN,
  • 00:35:31.030 --> 00:35:32.120
  • PRAYER IS WHAT PUSHES THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS BACK.
  • 00:35:32.140 --> 00:35:35.140
  • YOU SPLIT THE SEA
  • 00:35:35.160 --> 00:35:37.040
  • SO I COULD WALK RIGHT THROUGH IT
  • 00:35:37.060 --> 00:35:41.250
  • MY FEARS WERE DROWNED IN PERFECT LOVE
  • 00:35:41.270 --> 00:35:48.130
  • YOU RESCUED ME SO I WILL STAND AND SING
  • 00:35:48.150 --> 00:35:53.290
  • I AM THE CHILD OF GOD
  • 00:35:54.010 --> 00:36:01.060
  • YOU SPLIT THE SEA
  • 00:36:01.080 --> 00:36:03.030
  • SO I COULD WALK RIGHT THROUGH IT
  • 00:36:03.050 --> 00:36:08.010
  • MY FEARS ARE DROWN IN PERFECT LOVE
  • 00:36:08.030 --> 00:36:14.190
  • YOU RESCUED ME SO I WILL STAND AND SING
  • 00:36:14.210 --> 00:36:20.040
  • I AM THE CHILD OF GOD
  • 00:36:20.060 --> 00:36:26.210
  • I AM A CHILD OF GOD
  • 00:36:26.230 --> 00:36:33.060
  • I AM A CHILD OF GOD [FULL OF FAITH YES]
  • 00:36:33.080 --> 00:36:39.160
  • I AM A CHILD OF GOD
  • 00:36:39.180 --> 00:36:45.170
  • - THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE TELLS US TO CONFESS.
  • 00:36:45.190 --> 00:36:49.190
  • [LAUGHS]
  • 00:36:49.210 --> 00:36:51.250
  • I AM HEALED.
  • 00:36:51.270 --> 00:36:54.040
  • I'M THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL.
  • 00:36:54.060 --> 00:36:56.140
  • I'M ABOVE AND NOT BENEATH.
  • 00:36:56.160 --> 00:36:58.260
  • GREATER IS HE THAT'S IN ME THAT HE THAT'S IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:36:58.280 --> 00:37:02.260
  • EVEN IF YOU DON'T FULLY BELIEVE IT, JUST SPEAK IT.
  • 00:37:02.280 --> 00:37:05.070
  • IT CONFUSES THE ENEMY.
  • 00:37:05.090 --> 00:37:07.050
  • EVEN IF TEARS ARE COMING DOWN YOUR FACE, SPEAK THE WORD.
  • 00:37:07.070 --> 00:37:10.260
  • EVEN WHEN IT DON'T, SPEAK THE WORD.
  • 00:37:10.280 --> 00:37:13.060
  • WHEN IT MAKES NO SENSE, SPEAK THE...
  • 00:37:13.080 --> 00:37:16.180
  • - EARTH WAS FORMED FROM WORDS
  • 00:37:16.200 --> 00:37:19.090
  • WHEN GOD SPOKE, LET THERE BE AND THERE WAS.
  • 00:37:19.110 --> 00:37:21.260
  • AND SO, WHAT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:37:21.280 --> 00:37:23.250
  • IS THAT WHENEVER WE SPEAK SOMETHING,
  • 00:37:23.270 --> 00:37:25.160
  • OUR WORDS ARE FORMING THINGS.
  • 00:37:25.180 --> 00:37:27.130
  • AND SO GOD BEGINS TO LET US KNOW
  • 00:37:27.150 --> 00:37:29.190
  • THAT YOU CAN EITHER SPEAK THE NEGATIVE OR THE POSITIVE
  • 00:37:29.210 --> 00:37:32.140
  • OVER YOU IN ORDER FOR YOU TO SEE WHAT YOU WANNA SEE IN LIFE.
  • 00:37:32.160 --> 00:37:35.280
  • AND WE BEGIN TO SPEAK THE POSITIVITY OVER MY CAREER,
  • 00:37:36.000 --> 00:37:39.030
  • OVER MY LIFE IN GENERAL, AND GOD'S JUST BEEN AMAZING,
  • 00:37:39.050 --> 00:37:42.170
  • HE'S BEEN ALLOWING US TO SEE WHERE WE'VE BEEN SPEAKING.
  • 00:37:42.190 --> 00:37:45.160
  • SO PEOPLE OF GOD, DON'T CLOSE YOUR MOUTH
  • 00:37:45.180 --> 00:37:48.080
  • CAUSE WHATEVER YOU SAID, YOU'RE GONNA SEE IT.
  • 00:37:48.100 --> 00:37:51.240
  • AND WHAT THE ENEMY WANTS TO DO IS,
  • 00:37:51.260 --> 00:37:53.260
  • IS BECAUSE HE KNOWS OF THE MAXIMUM POTENTIAL
  • 00:37:53.280 --> 00:37:56.210
  • THAT GOD HAS PLACED ON THE INSIDE OF US,
  • 00:37:56.230 --> 00:37:59.040
  • HE WANTS TO KEEP OUR THINKING LIMITED AND STAGNATED.
  • 00:37:59.060 --> 00:38:02.240
  • BUT I CAME TO DECLARE THAT THE DEVIL IS A LIAR.
  • 00:38:02.260 --> 00:38:06.020
  • THIS IS OUR WAR CRY, WE'LL RISE UP
  • 00:38:06.040 --> 00:38:14.110
  • AND THIS IS OUR TIME TO RISE UP,
  • 00:38:14.130 --> 00:38:21.030
  • RISE UP, YEAH
  • 00:38:21.050 --> 00:38:24.110
  • I THOUGHT BY NOW I WOULD GET IT
  • 00:38:24.130 --> 00:38:26.060
  • HIS LOVE FOR ME IS UNMEASURED
  • 00:38:26.080 --> 00:38:28.210
  • STILL FEEL LIKE I COULD DO BETTER
  • 00:38:28.230 --> 00:38:30.150
  • WAS PARALYZED BY DEPRESSION
  • 00:38:30.170 --> 00:38:32.250
  • BUT HEAVEN AND EARTH CAME TOGETHER
  • 00:38:32.270 --> 00:38:35.090
  • AND YOU CAME TO MY RESCUE
  • 00:38:35.110 --> 00:38:37.030
  • I USE MY VOICE AS A WEAPON
  • 00:38:37.050 --> 00:38:39.050
  • ON EARTH LIKE IT'S IN HEAVN
  • 00:38:39.070 --> 00:38:41.110
  • YEAH, I NEVER HANDLE THINGS TOO WELL
  • 00:38:41.130 --> 00:38:43.010
  • BUT I WAS MADE TO FLY, NOT TO FAIL
  • 00:38:43.030 --> 00:38:44.240
  • I DON'T NEED MAN'S APPROVAL
  • 00:38:44.260 --> 00:38:46.080
  • WHEN GOD SENT ME TO BRING HEAVEN
  • 00:38:46.100 --> 00:38:47.290
  • DOWN FOR THE KIDS GOING THROUGH HELL
  • 00:38:48.010 --> 00:38:49.250
  • YEAH, WE GON' MAKE IT
  • 00:38:49.270 --> 00:38:51.250
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THE WORLD'S BEEN SAYING
  • 00:38:51.270 --> 00:38:53.290
  • IT'S TIME TO STEP UP, NOT CAVE IN
  • 00:38:54.010 --> 00:38:55.170
  • THE GRACE HE GAVE US, AMAZING
  • 00:38:55.190 --> 00:38:57.010
  • A LOVE THAT COULD CONQUER THE HATRED
  • 00:38:57.030 --> 00:38:58.240
  • BUT IT'S UP TO US
  • 00:38:58.260 --> 00:39:00.120
  • A NEW GENERATION TO SHOW HIS LOVE
  • 00:39:00.140 --> 00:39:02.090
  • FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH TO THE DAY HE COMES
  • 00:39:02.110 --> 00:39:04.220
  • COME ON TAUREN
  • 00:39:04.240 --> 00:39:06.040
  • THIS IS OUR WAR CRY, WE'LL RISE UP
  • 00:39:06.060 --> 00:39:14.150
  • AND THIS IS OUR TIME TO RISE UP
  • 00:39:14.170 --> 00:39:19.260
  • - IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE IN A DEAD SITUATION,
  • 00:39:19.280 --> 00:39:23.020
  • IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU'RE IN A LOST OF CONFUSED PLACE,
  • 00:39:23.040 --> 00:39:26.080
  • GOD CAN PULL YOU OUT OF FROM WHEREVER YOU ARE.
  • 00:39:26.100 --> 00:39:28.210
  • - YOU ARE GONNA TAKE CARE OF ME,
  • 00:39:28.230 --> 00:39:30.050
  • YOU'RE GONNA PROVIDE FOR ME, YOU'RE GONNA BE MY JOY,
  • 00:39:30.070 --> 00:39:32.180
  • YOU'RE GONNA BE MY PEACE, YOU'RE GONNA BE MY SOLID ROCK
  • 00:39:32.200 --> 00:39:35.210
  • THAT I HANG ON TO.
  • 00:39:35.230 --> 00:39:36.190
  • - BUT I WANT YOU TO LOOK TO HIM
  • 00:39:36.210 --> 00:39:38.030
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE GONNA MAKE IT,
  • 00:39:38.050 --> 00:39:39.100
  • YOU'RE GONNA COME THROUGH THIS.
  • 00:39:39.120 --> 00:39:40.210
  • - YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT GOD HAS IN STORE FOR YOU.
  • 00:39:40.230 --> 00:39:43.050
  • AS WELL AS SEEING HOW GOD WANTS TO EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:39:43.070 --> 00:39:47.040
  • - NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU IN LIFE,
  • 00:39:47.060 --> 00:39:49.050
  • NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:39:49.070 --> 00:39:51.170
  • NEVER DEVELOP A WOUNDED SPIRIT.
  • 00:39:51.190 --> 00:39:53.180
  • - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
  • 00:39:53.200 --> 00:39:55.020
  • WHAT MIRACLE IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR PERSEVERANCE,
  • 00:39:55.040 --> 00:39:57.170
  • SHELTER'S HUGE, MIRACLES THAT HAPPEN.
  • 00:39:57.190 --> 00:40:00.080
  • - IF YOU WILL BE OPEN,
  • 00:40:00.100 --> 00:40:01.220
  • THIS IS A YEAR OF SUPERNATURAL GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:40:01.240 --> 00:40:06.010
  • - YOU ARE GOOD, YOU'RE GONNA DO IT,
  • 00:40:06.030 --> 00:40:07.110
  • LORD I BELIEVE YOU'RE GONNA DO IT.
  • 00:40:07.130 --> 00:40:08.260
  • - GOD HAS PLANS FOR YOU, PLANS, NOT TO HARM YOU,
  • 00:40:08.280 --> 00:40:11.150
  • BUT TO GIVE YOU A HOPE AND A FUTURE.
  • 00:40:11.170 --> 00:40:13.250
  • YOU'RE HURT
  • 00:40:13.270 --> 00:40:15.050
  • I KNOW YOU'RE TORN
  • 00:40:15.070 --> 00:40:17.280
  • I KNOW YOU'RE BROKEN BUT
  • 00:40:18.000 --> 00:40:20.230
  • YOU WILL WIN
  • 00:40:20.250 --> 00:40:23.100
  • - BUT IF YOU KEEP PUSHING JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE,
  • 00:40:23.120 --> 00:40:26.120
  • AND WHEN YOU THINK IT'S THE DARKEST,
  • 00:40:26.140 --> 00:40:27.180
  • SOMETHING A MIRACULOUS,
  • 00:40:27.200 --> 00:40:29.110
  • WILL HAPPENED THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:40:29.130 --> 00:40:31.130
  • SOMETHING WILL OPEN UP THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.
  • 00:40:31.150 --> 00:40:34.150
  • YOU WILL WIN
  • 00:40:34.170 --> 00:40:38.290
  • - YOU ARE A WINNER, YOU'RE AN OVERCOMER,
  • 00:40:39.010 --> 00:40:42.120
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT YOU WANNA HI FIVE YOUR OLD SELF
  • 00:40:42.140 --> 00:40:45.100
  • AND SHOUT, IT'S MY WINNER SEASON.
  • 00:40:45.120 --> 00:40:47.150
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THE DEVIL MAY SAY,
  • 00:40:47.170 --> 00:40:49.090
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE,
  • 00:40:49.110 --> 00:40:51.180
  • IT'S MY WINNER SEASON.
  • 00:40:51.200 --> 00:40:54.050
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:40:54.070 --> 00:40:56.220
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:40:56.240 --> 00:40:59.270
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:40:59.290 --> 00:41:04.020
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:41:04.040 --> 00:41:06.250
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:41:06.270 --> 00:41:09.190
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:41:09.210 --> 00:41:12.070
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:41:12.090 --> 00:41:15.040
  • IT'S MY WINNING SEASON
  • 00:41:15.060 --> 00:41:17.060
  • EVERYTHING ATTACHED TO ME WINS
  • 00:41:17.080 --> 00:41:20.060
  • - YOU'RE NEVER ANY WEAKER THAN WHEN YOU'RE ANGRY.
  • 00:41:20.080 --> 00:41:24.180
  • OR WHEN YOU'RE ANGRY, YOU'RE WEAKER
  • 00:41:24.200 --> 00:41:26.220
  • THAN AT ANY OTHER TIME IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:41:26.240 --> 00:41:29.200
  • AND I THINK SATANIST USES ANGER AND STRIFE AND BITTERNESS
  • 00:41:29.220 --> 00:41:33.190
  • AND RESENTMENT AND UNFORGIVENESS
  • 00:41:33.210 --> 00:41:35.150
  • TO JUST KEEP PEOPLE IN PRISON.
  • 00:41:35.170 --> 00:41:38.160
  • AND I KNOW WE SAY, WHAT'S THE POINT IN BEING MAD AT SOMEBODY
  • 00:41:38.180 --> 00:41:41.070
  • THAT'S NOT HAVING A GOOD TIME
  • 00:41:41.090 --> 00:41:42.130
  • AND DON'T EVEN CARE THAT YOU'RE UPSET.
  • 00:41:42.150 --> 00:41:44.100
  • SO YOU'RE REALLY JUST HURTING YOURSELF.
  • 00:41:44.120 --> 00:41:46.120
  • SO EVERYTHING GOD SAYS ABOUT FORGIVING PEOPLE,
  • 00:41:46.140 --> 00:41:49.210
  • IT'S REALLY LIKE YOU'RE NOT DOING THEM A FAVOR,
  • 00:41:49.230 --> 00:41:53.010
  • YOU'RE DOING YOURSELF A FAVOR WHEN YOU FORGIVE.
  • 00:41:53.030 --> 00:41:56.040
  • AND THEN WHEN YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:41:56.060 --> 00:41:58.110
  • YOU RELEASE GOD TO DEAL WITH THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:41:58.130 --> 00:42:01.040
  • AND IT IS A FEARSOME THING TO FALL
  • 00:42:01.060 --> 00:42:02.210
  • INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:42:02.230 --> 00:42:05.070
  • AND IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU FEEL,
  • 00:42:05.090 --> 00:42:07.090
  • IT'S A DECISION THAT YOU MAKE.
  • 00:42:07.110 --> 00:42:10.210
  • AND GOD SAYS PLAINLY, YOU PRAY FOR THEM,
  • 00:42:10.230 --> 00:42:14.010
  • YOU BLESS AND DO NOT CURSE THEM.
  • 00:42:14.030 --> 00:42:16.120
  • AND SO MOST PEOPLE JUST TRY,
  • 00:42:16.140 --> 00:42:20.160
  • TO NOT FEEL BAD ABOUT A PERSON THAT'S HURT THEM ANYMORE.
  • 00:42:20.180 --> 00:42:23.150
  • AND THAT'S NOT EVEN THE POINT,
  • 00:42:23.170 --> 00:42:24.230
  • THE POINT IS TO MAKE THE DECISION
  • 00:42:24.250 --> 00:42:27.070
  • TO FORGIVE WITH GOD'S HELP.
  • 00:42:27.090 --> 00:42:29.270
  • AND THEN WHEN YOU START PRAYING FOR SOMEBODY,
  • 00:42:29.290 --> 00:42:34.170
  • YOU WON'T HAVE BAD FEELINGS TOWARD THEM FOR VERY LONG
  • 00:42:34.190 --> 00:42:37.100
  • IF YOU REALLY PRAY FOR THEM.
  • 00:42:37.120 --> 00:42:38.250
  • AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE DON'T DO, THEY DON'T PRAY.
  • 00:42:38.270 --> 00:42:42.040
  • AND WE THINK WELL, I DON'T WANNA PRAY FOR THEM
  • 00:42:42.060 --> 00:42:43.160
  • TO BE BLESSED, I DON'T WANT THEM TO BE BLESSED.
  • 00:42:43.180 --> 00:42:45.140
  • BUT THE FIRST THING GOD
  • 00:42:45.160 --> 00:42:46.210
  • WILL START BLESSING THEM WITH HIS TRUTH.
  • 00:42:46.230 --> 00:42:48.190
  • - THERE IT IS.
  • 00:42:48.210 --> 00:42:49.220
  • - AND SO WE GET ALL MIXED UP,
  • 00:42:49.240 --> 00:42:51.030
  • I DON'T WANT THEM TO BE BLESSED.
  • 00:42:51.050 --> 00:42:52.120
  • WELL, I UNDERSTAND THAT,
  • 00:42:52.140 --> 00:42:54.020
  • I DIDN'T WANT MY ENEMIES TO BE BLESSED EITHER,
  • 00:42:54.040 --> 00:42:56.050
  • BUT THEN GOD SHOWED ME.
  • 00:42:56.070 --> 00:42:57.190
  • THE FIRST THING I CAN BLESS THEM WITH IS TRUTH
  • 00:42:57.210 --> 00:43:01.010
  • IF YOU PRAY FOR THEM.
  • 00:43:01.040 --> 00:43:02.050
  • - GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS,
  • 00:43:02.070 --> 00:43:05.080
  • BUT HE WILL NOT CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:43:05.100 --> 00:43:08.020
  • AND YOUR PERPETUAL CONTINUATION OF SIN.
  • 00:43:08.040 --> 00:43:10.280
  • HERE IS A STATEMENT ABOUT THE DOCTRINE OF GRACE
  • 00:43:11.000 --> 00:43:14.150
  • THAT WILL HELP CLARIFY
  • 00:43:14.170 --> 00:43:16.260
  • A LOT OF MISUNDERSTANDING
  • 00:43:16.280 --> 00:43:19.250
  • AND A LOT OF MISTEACHING.
  • 00:43:19.270 --> 00:43:22.160
  • AND THAT IS, THAT TO GRANT FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:43:22.180 --> 00:43:26.130
  • TO USE THE GRACE OF GOD TO GRANT FORGIVENESS
  • 00:43:26.150 --> 00:43:30.150
  • WITHOUT THE MAN ENDING A CHANGE IN CONDUCT,
  • 00:43:30.170 --> 00:43:34.030
  • IS TO MAKE THE GRACE OF GOD AND ACCOMPLISH TO EVIL.
  • 00:43:34.050 --> 00:43:38.100
  • THIS IS JESUS WHERE THE WOMAN
  • 00:43:38.120 --> 00:43:39.270
  • WHO WAS BROUGHT TO HIM IN ADULTERY.
  • 00:43:39.290 --> 00:43:41.240
  • AND OBVIOUSLY, THE PHARISEES WANT TO STONE HER
  • 00:43:41.260 --> 00:43:45.160
  • BECAUSE SHE WAS GUILTY OF BREAKING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:43:45.180 --> 00:43:49.160
  • AND JESUS SAID "NEITHER DO I CONDEMN YOU,
  • 00:43:49.180 --> 00:43:53.080
  • GO AND SIN NO MORE.
  • 00:43:53.100 --> 00:43:55.050
  • THAT IS AN ISSUE THAT THE CHURCH NEEDS TO ADDRESS.
  • 00:43:55.070 --> 00:44:00.240
  • GOD WILL NOT BLESS YOU IN YOUR CONTINUOUS SIN.
  • 00:44:00.260 --> 00:44:04.240
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE THAT'S SINFUL,
  • 00:44:04.260 --> 00:44:07.070
  • HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:44:07.090 --> 00:44:09.060
  • BUT YOU DON'T GO OUT THE NEXT WEEK AND CONTINUE DOING IT
  • 00:44:09.080 --> 00:44:12.270
  • AND HAVE THE GRACE OF GOD TO COVER YOU PERPETUALLY.
  • 00:44:12.290 --> 00:44:16.230
  • YOU'RE FORGIVEN OF YOUR SIN TO STOP SINNING,
  • 00:44:16.250 --> 00:44:21.040
  • AND TO BECOME A RIGHTEOUS FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:44:21.060 --> 00:44:24.240
  • - WE LIVE IN A TIME WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:44:24.260 --> 00:44:28.090
  • IT'S GETTING DARKER AND DARKER.
  • 00:44:28.110 --> 00:44:29.280
  • AND I'VE SAID TO SOMEONE, WHAT ABOUT OUR GRAND KIDS?
  • 00:44:30.000 --> 00:44:34.010
  • WHAT ABOUT THEIR GRANDKIDS?
  • 00:44:34.030 --> 00:44:36.180
  • AND THE HOPE THAT THERE IS GRACE, THAT UNMERITED FAVOR,
  • 00:44:36.200 --> 00:44:41.190
  • THAT ABILITY TO OVERCOME THE FACT THAT GOD GRACES YOU
  • 00:44:41.210 --> 00:44:45.220
  • TO OVERCOME TEMPTATIONS AND TO BE STRONG IN YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:44:45.240 --> 00:44:49.200
  • BECAUSE IF NOT YOU THINK, HOW DO WE EVER BREAK OUT?
  • 00:44:49.220 --> 00:44:52.210
  • HOW DO WE CHANGE ANYTHING?
  • 00:44:52.230 --> 00:44:55.060
  • WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE THE CULTURE,
  • 00:44:55.080 --> 00:44:57.070
  • BUT WE DON'T HAVE TO BE LIKE THE CULTURE,
  • 00:44:57.090 --> 00:44:59.090
  • AND OUR CHILDREN DON'T HAVE TO BE
  • 00:44:59.110 --> 00:45:00.290
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:45:01.010 --> 00:45:02.170
  • AND THERE'S SUCH HOPE IN THAT.
  • 00:45:02.190 --> 00:45:04.110
  • THIS IS AMAZING GRACE
  • 00:45:04.130 --> 00:45:08.230
  • THIS IS UNFAILING LOVE
  • 00:45:08.250 --> 00:45:13.250
  • THAT YOU WOULD TAKE MY PLAE
  • 00:45:13.270 --> 00:45:18.160
  • THAT YOU WOULD BEAR MY CROS
  • 00:45:18.180 --> 00:45:23.110
  • YOU WOULD LAY DOWN YOUR LIE
  • 00:45:23.130 --> 00:45:27.290
  • THAT I WOULD BE SET FREE
  • 00:45:28.010 --> 00:45:35.110
  • JESUS, I SING FOR
  • 00:45:35.130 --> 00:45:37.180
  • ALL THAT YOU'VE DONE FOR ME
  • 00:45:37.200 --> 00:45:41.140
  • - A LOT OF PEOPLE SPEND THEIR LIFE GOING WELL,
  • 00:45:41.160 --> 00:45:43.090
  • IT'S NOT MY FAULT, LOOK WHAT HE DID TO ME
  • 00:45:43.110 --> 00:45:46.240
  • OR LOOK WHAT SHE DID TO ME, OR LOOK WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT ME.
  • 00:45:46.260 --> 00:45:49.290
  • AND IT'S ALL VALID, I'M NOT MINIMIZING THAT.
  • 00:45:50.010 --> 00:45:52.070
  • BUT THERE COMES A PLACE
  • 00:45:52.090 --> 00:45:53.240
  • WHERE YOU NEED TO MAKE WHAT JESUS CHRIST DID FOR YOU,
  • 00:45:53.260 --> 00:45:56.200
  • BIGGER THAN WHAT THEY DID TO YOU.
  • 00:45:56.220 --> 00:45:58.210
  • AND I HAD TO COME TO A PLACE.
  • 00:45:58.230 --> 00:46:01.120
  • AND I DISCOVERED, THAT'S WHERE I DISCOVERED
  • 00:46:01.140 --> 00:46:03.100
  • THE UNEXPECTED GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:46:03.120 --> 00:46:04.280
  • BECAUSE IT'S ONE THING TO RECEIVE GOD'S GRACE TO GO,
  • 00:46:05.000 --> 00:46:07.230
  • AND I HEARD THAT FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:46:07.250 --> 00:46:10.000
  • CHRISTINE, GOD CAN DO SOMETHING WITH SOMEONE LIKE YOU,
  • 00:46:10.020 --> 00:46:12.060
  • BECAUSE FOR MANY YEARS,
  • 00:46:12.080 --> 00:46:13.160
  • AND THERE'S SOMEONE WATCHING THIS TODAY.
  • 00:46:13.180 --> 00:46:15.050
  • AND I'M SURE THAT YOU FEEL LIKE I DID FOR A LOT OF YEARS,
  • 00:46:15.070 --> 00:46:17.220
  • I WOULD BE SITTING IN CHURCH
  • 00:46:17.240 --> 00:46:19.050
  • OR MAYBE WATCHING A BROADCAST LIKE THIS AND THINKING,
  • 00:46:19.070 --> 00:46:21.180
  • YEAH IT'S OKAY FOR HER,
  • 00:46:21.200 --> 00:46:23.040
  • BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:46:23.060 --> 00:46:25.000
  • AND I WOULD LOVE TO THINK THAT GOD COULD USE ME,
  • 00:46:25.020 --> 00:46:27.190
  • BUT WHAT I'VE DONE IS UNFORGIVABLE,
  • 00:46:27.210 --> 00:46:29.280
  • WHAT'S HAPPENED TO ME IS JUST SO BAD.
  • 00:46:30.000 --> 00:46:32.040
  • AND I USED TO BE THAT PERSON SITTING
  • 00:46:32.060 --> 00:46:33.150
  • IN THE BACK OF CHURCH GOING HERE.
  • 00:46:33.170 --> 00:46:34.230
  • BUT IF MY PASTOR KNEW WHAT THEY DID TO ME.
  • 00:46:34.250 --> 00:46:38.030
  • BUT THEN THEY CAME A DAY WHERE I BELIEVE
  • 00:46:38.050 --> 00:46:40.210
  • THAT WOW, MAYBE THE GRACE OF GOD IS ENOUGH FOR ME AS WELL.
  • 00:46:40.230 --> 00:46:47.040
  • WORTHY IS THE LAMB WHO WAS SLAIN
  • 00:46:47.060 --> 00:46:54.170
  • THIS IS AMAZING GRACE
  • 00:46:54.190 --> 00:46:59.180
  • THIS IS UNFAILING LOVE
  • 00:46:59.200 --> 00:47:04.150
  • THAT YOU WOULD TAKE MY PLAE

  • THAT YOU WOULD BEAR MY CROS
  • 00:47:09.070 --> 00:47:13.290
  • YOU WOULD LAY DOWN YOUR LIE

  • - AS A KID, I ALWAYS HAD A REALLY NATURAL FAITH.
  • 00:49:02.220 --> 00:49:05.170
  • I JUST KIND OF FELT THAT THERE'S A PRESENCE
  • 00:49:05.190 --> 00:49:08.070
  • AND THERE'S A GOODNESS OUT THERE, AND THAT I'M LOVED.
  • 00:49:08.090 --> 00:49:12.030
  • AND MY FAITH WASN'T ANY MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT.
  • 00:49:12.050 --> 00:49:16.260
  • I THINK SCHOOL REALLY BEAT IT OUT OF ME ACTUALLY.
  • 00:49:16.280 --> 00:49:19.150
  • I WENT TO A VERY KIND OF OLD-FASHIONED
  • 00:49:19.170 --> 00:49:24.140
  • ENGLISH KIND OF SCHOOL WHERE IT WAS ALL CHURCH AND SERMONS
  • 00:49:24.160 --> 00:49:29.180
  • AND LOTS OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:49:29.200 --> 00:49:32.090
  • WHENEVER I CAME ACROSS PEOPLE WHO HAD A FAITH,
  • 00:49:32.110 --> 00:49:34.000
  • THEY WERE ALWAYS A JUDGMENT
  • 00:49:34.020 --> 00:49:35.130
  • OR ONE WHO'S TELLING ME TO STALL MY ACT OUT, BRUSH MY HAIR,
  • 00:49:35.150 --> 00:49:39.060
  • AND PUT SOME SHOES ON [CHUCKLES].
  • 00:49:39.080 --> 00:49:40.220

  • JUST WANNA CLIMB OTHER TREES AND JUMP OFF STUFF.
  • 00:49:42.220 --> 00:49:45.140
  • SO I THOUGHT I REALLY GOT IT WRONG.
  • 00:49:45.160 --> 00:49:47.180
  • I USED TO THINK GOD WAS KIND OF LIKE REALLY COOL AND FREE
  • 00:49:47.200 --> 00:49:51.110
  • AND FUN AND WILD AND EVERYTHING.
  • 00:49:51.130 --> 00:49:53.180
  • AND I SAID GOSH, I GOTTA GROW UP.
  • 00:49:53.200 --> 00:49:55.240
  • SO I KIND OF REALLY DITCHED FAITH,
  • 00:49:55.260 --> 00:49:57.220
  • AND IT WASN'T, IT I WAS ABOUT 15 OR 16
  • 00:49:57.240 --> 00:50:02.220
  • THAT MY GOD FATHER DIED WHO'D BEEN
  • 00:50:02.240 --> 00:50:05.040

  • 00:50:05.060 --> 00:50:07.120
  • I LIVE WITH IT A LOT OF THE TIME.
  • 00:50:07.140 --> 00:50:10.020
  • AND OUT OF THE BLUE, HE DIED,
  • 00:50:10.040 --> 00:50:11.120
  • AND I JUST TO REMEMBER SITTING UP THIS TREE
  • 00:50:11.140 --> 00:50:13.030
  • ON MY OWN ONE NIGHT JUST CRYING,
  • 00:50:13.050 --> 00:50:15.180

  • AND THAT THERE'S THIS PRESENCE AND GOODNESS,
  • 00:50:38.260 --> 00:50:41.060

  • 00:52:03.130 --> 00:52:08.220
  • THAT WE HAVE STARTED TO DETERMINE THE STRENGTH
  • 00:52:08.240 --> 00:52:11.140
  • AND SOMETIMES EVEN THE REALITY OF OUR FAITH
  • 00:52:11.160 --> 00:52:14.060
  • THROUGH THE WINDOW OF OUR FEELINGS.
  • 00:52:14.080 --> 00:52:16.150
  • DO I FEEL CLOSE TO GOD?
  • 00:52:16.170 --> 00:52:18.280
  • THEN I AM CLOSE TO GOD.
  • 00:52:19.000 --> 00:52:20.200
  • DO I FEEL FAR FROM GOD?
  • 00:52:20.220 --> 00:52:22.180
  • WELL THEN I AM FAR FROM GOD.
  • 00:52:22.200 --> 00:52:25.080
  • DO I FEEL SUCCESSFUL?
  • 00:52:25.100 --> 00:52:26.230
  • WELL THEN, GOD MUST CALL ME A SUCCESS.
  • 00:52:26.250 --> 00:52:29.010
  • DO I FEEL LIKE A FAILURE?
  • 00:52:29.030 --> 00:52:30.170
  • WELL THEN, GOD MUST BE EMBARRASSED BY ME.
  • 00:52:30.190 --> 00:52:33.180
  • WE HAVE THIS TENDENCY TO CONFUSE EMOTION FOR DEVOTION.
  • 00:52:33.200 --> 00:52:39.100
  • AND WHAT THAT DOES, IS IT CREATES THIS RESTLESSNESS,
  • 00:52:39.120 --> 00:52:43.170
  • ALMOST THIS ANXIOUS FAITH
  • 00:52:43.190 --> 00:52:46.090
  • THAT'S ALWAYS IN SEARCH OF THE NEXT BIG HIGH,
  • 00:52:46.110 --> 00:52:50.090
  • THE NEXT BIG SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE
  • 00:52:50.110 --> 00:52:53.170
  • TRYING TO CONNECT THEM ALL
  • 00:52:53.190 --> 00:52:55.210
  • BECAUSE WE'RE LOOKING FOR A FEELING THAT ENDURES.
  • 00:52:55.230 --> 00:52:59.030
  • JESUS YOUR NAME IS POWER
  • 00:52:59.050 --> 00:53:02.180
  • BREATH, AND LIVING WATER
  • 00:53:02.200 --> 00:53:05.220
  • - SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:53:05.240 --> 00:53:08.050
  • IS THAT HE'S NEVER GONNA LEAVE YOU. HE'S ALWAYS THERE
  • 00:53:08.070 --> 00:53:13.150
  • THROUGH THAT SHIPWRECK.
  • 00:53:13.170 --> 00:53:15.010
  • HIS PROMISES ARE TRUE FOREVER AND AMEN.
  • 00:53:15.030 --> 00:53:17.150
  • -[WOMAN] THEY ARE.
  • 00:53:17.170 --> 00:53:19.150
  • - AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LORD.
  • 00:53:19.170 --> 00:53:21.270
  • AND IF YOU PUT YOUR FAITH AND YOUR TRUST IN ANYTHING ELSE,
  • 00:53:21.290 --> 00:53:25.220
  • IT'S LIKELY GOING TO DISAPPEAR.
  • 00:53:25.240 --> 00:53:28.190
  • JUST DON'T LEAN ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, I GOT IT,
  • 00:53:28.210 --> 00:53:32.150
  • AND I'M GONNA SEE YOU THROUGH.
  • 00:53:32.170 --> 00:53:33.280
  • AND SO HE DRAWS OUR FAITH ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:53:34.000 --> 00:53:36.290
  • BUT THAT'S THE ONLY WAY WE CAN PLEASE HIM.
  • 00:53:37.010 --> 00:53:38.180
  • SO HOW AMAZING IS THAT?
  • 00:53:38.200 --> 00:53:40.130
  • IS THAT WHAT HE LOVES?
  • 00:53:40.150 --> 00:53:42.140
  • IS IT WHAT HE GETS YOU TO DO?
  • 00:53:42.160 --> 00:53:44.140
  • HE WANTS YOU TO DO,
  • 00:53:44.160 --> 00:53:46.000
  • HE WANTS YOU TO TRUST HIM, BECAUSE IT GIVES HIM INCENTIVE
  • 00:53:46.020 --> 00:53:48.110
  • TO TAKE SUCH GOOD CARE OF YOU.
  • 00:53:48.130 --> 00:53:51.080
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY
  • 00:53:51.100 --> 00:53:54.080
  • IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:53:54.100 --> 00:53:57.290
  • WHO WAS, AND IS, AND IS TO COME, YEAH
  • 00:53:58.010 --> 00:54:03.160
  • - WITH EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH TINA,
  • 00:54:03.180 --> 00:54:05.130
  • WHAT KEPT YOU STRONG?
  • 00:54:05.150 --> 00:54:07.240
  • - GOD, COME ON NOW.
  • 00:54:07.260 --> 00:54:09.140
  • I HAD THE HOLY GHOST.
  • 00:54:09.160 --> 00:54:11.020
  • EVEN THOUGH THE HOLY GHOST
  • 00:54:11.040 --> 00:54:12.170
  • WAS LAYING INSIDE OF ME AND IT WAS DORMANT FOR MANY YEARS,
  • 00:54:12.190 --> 00:54:15.090
  • I HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT, I HAVE THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD,
  • 00:54:15.110 --> 00:54:19.130
  • AND NOTHING COULD HELP ME WHILE I WAS DOWN, NOTHING.
  • 00:54:19.150 --> 00:54:22.190
  • I DIDN'T WANNA RECEIVE HELP
  • 00:54:22.210 --> 00:54:24.050
  • OR HOPE FROM NO ONE OR NOTHING, SO I HAD TO GET IT FROM GOD.
  • 00:54:24.070 --> 00:54:27.140
  • AND THE UNFORTUNATE THING IS IF YOU GOT
  • 00:54:27.160 --> 00:54:29.110
  • AN A PLAN AND A B PLAN, AND IF YOU GOT OPTIONS,
  • 00:54:29.130 --> 00:54:31.120
  • SOMETIMES YOU WILL CHOOSE THEM.
  • 00:54:31.140 --> 00:54:32.240
  • AND SO PEOPLE, YOU WERE EASIER
  • 00:54:32.260 --> 00:54:35.050
  • TO GO TO BECAUSE I COULD SEE YOU,
  • 00:54:35.070 --> 00:54:37.160
  • I COULD HEAR YOU AUDIBLY,
  • 00:54:37.180 --> 00:54:39.200
  • SO I COULD MAKE MORE SENSE OF SOMEONE
  • 00:54:39.220 --> 00:54:42.210
  • THAT WAS A MAN OR A WOMAN OF GOD
  • 00:54:42.230 --> 00:54:44.230
  • MORE THAN I COULD GOING DIRECTLY TO HIM,
  • 00:54:44.250 --> 00:54:47.030
  • BUT THE PEOPLE OF GOD WASN'T ENOUGH WHILE I WAS IN THAT PIT.
  • 00:54:47.050 --> 00:54:50.050
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:54:50.070 --> 00:54:51.200
  • - SO I HAD TO GET ACQUAINTED WITH THE GOD OF ALL CREATION,
  • 00:54:51.220 --> 00:54:55.050
  • AND I FOUND OUT THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT I HAD
  • 00:54:55.070 --> 00:54:57.270
  • THAT WAS LAYING DORMANT BECAUSE I WASN'T UTILIZING IT,
  • 00:54:57.290 --> 00:55:01.010
  • WAS ENOUGH TO STRENGTHEN AND EMPOWER ME
  • 00:55:01.030 --> 00:55:03.100
  • AND GIVE ME THE WISDOM AND THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:55:03.120 --> 00:55:05.060
  • THAT I NEED TO NAVIGATE ANY SITUATION IN LIFE.
  • 00:55:05.080 --> 00:55:09.120
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY
  • 00:55:09.140 --> 00:55:12.150
  • IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:55:12.170 --> 00:55:16.050
  • WHO WAS, AND IS, AND IS TO COME, YEAH
  • 00:55:16.070 --> 00:55:21.050
  • - JESUS SAID "I'M THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.
  • 00:55:21.070 --> 00:55:24.030
  • "NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME."
  • 00:55:24.050 --> 00:55:26.260
  • IF YOU'RE WILLING TO ACCEPT IT MY FAITH, SIMPLY BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:55:26.280 --> 00:55:30.240
  • GOD WILL FORGIVE YOUR SIN AND HE'LL HEAL YOUR HEART.
  • 00:55:30.260 --> 00:55:33.090
  • AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS JUST PRAY THIS PRAYER,
  • 00:55:33.110 --> 00:55:34.250
  • JUST SAY GOD I'VE SINNED, I'M SORRY, FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:55:34.270 --> 00:55:39.250
  • I BELIEVE JESUS IS YOUR SON,
  • 00:55:39.270 --> 00:55:42.090
  • I BELIEVE THAT HE DIED FOR MY SINS,
  • 00:55:42.110 --> 00:55:45.010
  • I BELIEVE THAT YOU RAISED HIM TO LIFE,
  • 00:55:45.030 --> 00:55:47.120
  • AND I WANT TO INVITE HIM NOW TO COME INTO MY HEART
  • 00:55:47.140 --> 00:55:50.060
  • TO TAKE CONTROL OF MY LIFE,
  • 00:55:50.080 --> 00:55:52.040
  • AND PUT MY LIFE TOGETHER AND GIVE A MEANING, A PURPOSE.
  • 00:55:52.060 --> 00:55:55.180
  • NOW IF YOU PRAY THAT PRAYER,
  • 00:55:55.200 --> 00:55:57.010
  • GOD WILL DO THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:55:57.030 --> 00:55:59.120
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY
  • 00:55:59.140 --> 00:56:02.150
  • IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:56:02.170 --> 00:56:06.030
  • WHO WAS, AND IS, AND IS TO COME, YEAH
  • 00:56:06.050 --> 00:56:13.190
  • WITH ALL CREATION I SING
  • 00:56:13.210 --> 00:56:16.260
  • PRAISE TO THE KING OF KINGS
  • 00:56:16.280 --> 00:56:20.080
  • YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING
  • 00:56:20.100 --> 00:56:23.120
  • AND I WILL ADORE YOU
  • 00:56:23.140 --> 00:56:24.100
