  • - Bobbie Houston: The story
  • 00:00:12.070 --> 00:00:12.240
  • of our sisterhood is
  • 00:00:12.240 --> 00:00:13.240
  • the story of us.
  • 00:00:13.240 --> 00:00:14.150
  • It is this gorgeous tapestry
  • 00:00:14.150 --> 00:00:16.110
  • of lives interwoven.
  • 00:00:16.110 --> 00:00:17.220
  • As followers of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:00:17.220 --> 00:00:19.230
  • you have permission to rise up
  • 00:00:19.230 --> 00:00:21.080
  • and be who God has called you
  • 00:00:21.080 --> 00:00:22.150
  • to be.
  • 00:00:22.150 --> 00:00:23.150
  • - Holly Wagner: You'll never
  • 00:00:26.150 --> 00:00:27.100
  • make this journey by yourselves.
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:29.060
  • We are stronger together.
  • 00:00:29.060 --> 00:00:31.020
  • It's not sister,
  • 00:00:31.020 --> 00:00:31.270
  • it's sisterhood.
  • 00:00:31.270 --> 00:00:33.270
  • - Judah Smith: The sisterhood
  • 00:00:33.270 --> 00:00:34.200
  • is in the jetstream
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:36.050
  • of God's expansion plan.
  • 00:00:36.050 --> 00:00:38.060
  • We will shoulder to shoulder
  • 00:00:38.060 --> 00:00:39.270
  • carry the message
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:40.170
  • of Jesus' love.
  • 00:00:40.170 --> 00:00:42.170
  • - Lisa Bevere: This conference
  • 00:00:42.170 --> 00:00:43.060
  • exists so that women remember
  • 00:00:43.060 --> 00:00:45.200
  • God created them as
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:47.250
  • a heaven-breathed answer
  • 00:00:47.250 --> 00:00:49.220
  • - Bobbie: The beauty
  • 00:00:52.160 --> 00:00:54.010
  • of the gospel is the mystery.
  • 00:00:54.010 --> 00:00:56.150
  • God the Father
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:58.140
  • chose not to abandon us.
  • 00:00:58.140 --> 00:01:00.210
  • People are lost in the field.
  • 00:01:00.210 --> 00:01:02.220
  • Right now, girls,
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:03.240
  • - Judah Smith: I want to talk
  • 00:01:14.040 --> 00:01:15.020
  • about love, and I want to talk
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:18.020
  • about the progression of love,
  • 00:01:18.020 --> 00:01:21.020
  • and the levels of love that are
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:24.080
  • unfolding that I think this
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:26.000
  • movement carries and carries
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:28.100
  • around the world.
  • 00:01:28.100 --> 00:01:29.100
  • And I want to just, not even so
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:32.240
  • much challenge you,
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:33.180
  • because I believe many of you
  • 00:01:33.180 --> 00:01:34.120
  • are already living out
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:35.160
  • this love, but if nothing else,
  • 00:01:35.160 --> 00:01:36.240
  • kind of put verbiage
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:38.020
  • and vernacular and framework,
  • 00:01:38.020 --> 00:01:40.050
  • I believe, the love
  • 00:01:40.050 --> 00:01:41.130
  • that you've already leaned into
  • 00:01:41.130 --> 00:01:42.270
  • and the difference you're making
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:44.260
  • literally, physically,
  • 00:01:44.260 --> 00:01:45.250
  • tangibly, socially, spiritually
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:48.110
  • But I want to speak
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:51.020
  • to this love, and so we're
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:52.210
  • gonna go back to Bible days.
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:55.030
  • We're gonna look at Jesus and
  • 00:01:55.030 --> 00:01:56.230
  • his 12 dysfunctional disciples,
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:58.220
  • okay, the original ratpack,
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:01.180
  • the original crew that was gonna
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:03.210
  • take this message to the ends
  • 00:02:03.210 --> 00:02:04.270
  • of the earth that now is,
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.230
  • that crew is the crew
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:08.100
  • we're now a part of, okay?
  • 00:02:08.100 --> 00:02:10.060
  • You are far more beautiful
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:12.020
  • than that original crew.
  • 00:02:12.020 --> 00:02:13.040
  • Can I just tell you that?
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:14.200
  • But I want us to talk
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:16.130
  • about love, and so
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:17.200
  • I'm gonna title this talk,
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:19.060
  • for a lack of a better title,
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:20.290
  • "Living Love."
  • 00:02:20.290 --> 00:02:22.210
  • "Living Love."
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:23.110
  • And you're already doing that.
  • 00:02:23.110 --> 00:02:24.150
  • But I want to talk a little bit
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:25.290
  • more about that and
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:27.110
  • what I believe will bring about
  • 00:02:27.120 --> 00:02:30.120
  • the greatest transformation
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:33.000
  • in the earth.
  • 00:02:33.000 --> 00:02:33.200
  • And just before
  • 00:02:33.200 --> 00:02:34.100
  • we go any further,
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:35.010
  • can we remind ourselves again
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:36.280
  • by rehearsing, revisiting,
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:38.210
  • recalling, remembering
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:40.040
  • why we're here and what really
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:42.040
  • the big idea is in this room?
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:44.070
  • We are here for one reason.
  • 00:02:44.070 --> 00:02:47.050
  • We're here for one primary
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.080
  • reason and that is Jesus has
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:51.190
  • so loved us, it is scandalous.
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:54.040
  • It is ridiculous.
  • 00:02:54.040 --> 00:02:55.170
  • It is in explicable.
  • 00:02:55.170 --> 00:02:56.240
  • It is beyond me,
  • 00:02:56.240 --> 00:02:57.270
  • and it's beyond you.
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:02:59.080
  • He had every reason
  • 00:02:59.080 --> 00:03:00.090
  • to not love us,
  • 00:03:00.090 --> 00:03:01.220
  • but he who knew no sin
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:03.130
  • became sin so that you
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:05.060
  • and I might become right
  • 00:03:05.060 --> 00:03:06.210
  • with God, that we are now
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:07.290
  • the righteousness of God
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:09.260
  • in Christ Jesus.
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:11.030
  • And so, we are here
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:12.100
  • because we are compelled.
  • 00:03:12.100 --> 00:03:14.120
  • We are compelled,
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.110
  • not only to gather,
  • 00:03:15.110 --> 00:03:16.280
  • but then to scatter to the ends
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:18.130
  • of the earth and tell anyone
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:20.050
  • and everyone who will simply
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.130
  • listen, "Give me a minute,
  • 00:03:21.130 --> 00:03:22.270
  • give me 10 minutes,
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:23.250
  • give me 10 days,
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:24.220
  • give me an hour,
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:25.220
  • whatever it is, I want to tell
  • 00:03:25.220 --> 00:03:27.130
  • you about Jesus."
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:29.030
  • We are here
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:30.100
  • because life is short.
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:32.070
  • It's a breath, it's a vapor.
  • 00:03:32.070 --> 00:03:34.080
  • It's here today, gone tomorrow.
  • 00:03:34.080 --> 00:03:36.140
  • The hour is nearing.
  • 00:03:36.140 --> 00:03:37.270
  • He's gonna split the sky
  • 00:03:37.270 --> 00:03:39.120
  • and return before we know it.
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:41.040
  • And so, we are here far beyond
  • 00:03:41.040 --> 00:03:43.140
  • just paying the bills
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:45.060
  • and taking our kids in a minivan
  • 00:03:45.060 --> 00:03:46.270
  • to soccer practice,
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:48.150
  • and making sure
  • 00:03:48.150 --> 00:03:49.140
  • there's groceries, and making
  • 00:03:49.140 --> 00:03:51.140
  • sure that our boss is happy,
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:53.070
  • and our career.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:54.080
  • No, we're here.
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:55.000
  • All of that is for the ultimate
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:57.280
  • grand plan and big idea and that
  • 00:03:57.280 --> 00:04:00.290
  • is to tell the world that there
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:03.200
  • is a God and he's crazy
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:06.230
  • about 'em and he loves 'em.
  • 00:04:06.230 --> 00:04:09.120
  • So, we're here tonight under
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:10.290
  • a mandate, aren't we?
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:12.250
  • And that's a really technical
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:14.040
  • Bible term that some of you are
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:15.090
  • like, "What does mandate mean?"
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:17.020
  • I don't know, but I think
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:20.100
  • it means we have to, we get to,
  • 00:04:20.100 --> 00:04:22.230
  • and we want to.
  • 00:04:22.230 --> 00:04:24.290
  • I get to tell my world
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:26.290
  • about Jesus.
  • 00:04:26.290 --> 00:04:27.260
  • I want to tell my world
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:30.200
  • about Jesus.
  • 00:04:30.200 --> 00:04:31.250
  • I want to demonstrate
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:33.160
  • And I just consider that the
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:37.280
  • great high honor of the human
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:40.090
  • existence that you and I can be
  • 00:04:40.090 --> 00:04:42.240
  • carriers of that beautiful
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:46.110
  • message that is frankly
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:47.220
  • sometimes almost too hard
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:49.020
  • It's so good.
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:51.260
  • So, we're here and that's kind
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:54.040
  • of where we're at, right?
  • 00:04:54.040 --> 00:04:55.000
  • We're all on the same page
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:56.190
  • and I just want to,
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:57.210
  • I want to speak into that.
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:59.020
  • Would you just join me?
  • 00:04:59.020 --> 00:05:00.090
  • Well, before I pray, I would
  • 00:05:00.090 --> 00:05:02.240
  • like to read my Scripture.
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:04.180
  • It's God's Scripture,
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.250
  • but it's my Scripture,
  • 00:05:05.250 --> 00:05:07.000
  • and it's our Scripture.
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:08.170
  • So, it's 1 John, 1 John.
  • 00:05:08.170 --> 00:05:10.270
  • Let me read this and the reason
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:13.200
  • I read my Scripture before
  • 00:05:13.200 --> 00:05:14.220
  • I kind of before I get started
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:16.150
  • is because my dad always said,
  • 00:05:16.150 --> 00:05:17.240
  • "Son, if the sermon stinks,
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:20.290
  • at least you read the Bible
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:22.030
  • at the beginning."
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:22.290
  • Okay, so like if all else fails,
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:25.070
  • it's like, "That kid was sweet,
  • 00:05:25.070 --> 00:05:27.000
  • At least he read the Bible."
  • 00:05:29.030 --> 00:05:30.030
  • Okay, 1 John chapter 4, verse 7.
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:35.230
  • John writes, "Beloved,"
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:37.040
  • and we can take the next
  • 00:05:37.040 --> 00:05:39.190
  • 30 minutes just on this.
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:40.190
  • "Beloved," which means you
  • 00:05:40.190 --> 00:05:42.010
  • be loved, right?
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:43.190
  • We're here first and foremost
  • 00:05:43.190 --> 00:05:44.230
  • as recipients, right?
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:46.250
  • Just receivers like, ah,
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:48.030
  • we're so beloved, right?
  • 00:05:48.030 --> 00:05:50.100
  • You be loved, I be loved,
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:51.240
  • we be loved, right?
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:53.270
  • "Beloved, let us love one
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:55.270
  • another, for love is from God,
  • 00:05:55.270 --> 00:05:57.200
  • and whoever loves
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:05:58.100
  • has been born of God
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:05:59.140
  • and absolutely knows God."
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:01.040
  • Now anyone who does not love,
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:03.030
  • they just don't know God.
  • 00:06:03.030 --> 00:06:04.090
  • They think they but they don't
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:05.100
  • really know him because
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:06.190
  • God doesn't just do love,
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:08.050
  • God is love.
  • 00:06:08.050 --> 00:06:09.180
  • "And this is the love of God was
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:11.190
  • made manifest among us, that God
  • 00:06:11.190 --> 00:06:13.120
  • sent his only Son into the
  • 00:06:13.120 --> 00:06:14.100
  • world, so that we might live
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:15.030
  • through him.
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:15.180
  • And this is love, not that
  • 00:06:15.180 --> 00:06:16.210
  • we loved God but that he loved
  • 00:06:16.210 --> 00:06:17.220
  • us and sent his Son to be the
  • 00:06:17.220 --> 00:06:18.230
  • propitiation for our sins.
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:19.290
  • Beloved, if God so loved us,
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.210
  • we also ought to love
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:22.170
  • one another.
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:23.080
  • No one has ever seen God;
  • 00:06:23.080 --> 00:06:25.070
  • semicolon, but if we love one
  • 00:06:25.070 --> 00:06:27.150
  • another, God abides in us and
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:30.030
  • his love is perfected in us."
  • 00:06:30.140 --> 00:06:33.140
  • Leapfrog down to verse 19.
  • 00:06:33.140 --> 00:06:35.000
  • How good is this?
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:35.220
  • "We love
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:36.170
  • because he first loved us."
  • 00:06:36.170 --> 00:06:39.090
  • Whoo! Man, we could just--that
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:41.030
  • is such a beautiful verse.
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:43.280
  • Okay, so, that's where
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:45.130
  • we're gonna go tonight?
  • 00:06:45.130 --> 00:06:46.050
  • Can I read one more from

  • Romans chapter 12?
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:49.020

  • don't be the great somebody.

  • Don't hit back;"
  • 00:07:10.050 --> 00:07:11.210
  • I love this, semicolon,

  • My yoga instructor is more nice

  • I've met.

  • You ever experience that?
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:24.280
  • Like, we're supposed to be the
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:27.040
  • people that discover beauty
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:28.250
  • in everyone,
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:30.040
  • even if we disagree spiritually

  • and theologically.

  • In Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:08:29.260 --> 00:08:32.260
  • I said earlier today
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:34.000
  • that marriage is hard
  • 00:08:34.000 --> 00:08:36.110
  • and that's true.
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:37.130
  • Chelsea makes it
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:38.110
  • a little bit better,
  • 00:08:38.110 --> 00:08:39.140
  • but it's still generally hard.
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:40.200
  • Marriage is difficult.
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:41.210
  • Just by a show of hands,
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:42.170
  • just because we can,
  • 00:08:42.170 --> 00:08:43.190
  • it's a free country,
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:44.240
  • how many of you are married?
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:45.270
  • Ladies, loud and proud,
  • 00:08:45.270 --> 00:08:47.090
  • you're married.
  • 00:08:47.090 --> 00:08:48.120
  • How many wish you were not?
  • 00:08:48.120 --> 00:08:49.170
  • I'm kidding, just relax,
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:51.030
  • Marriage is hard.
  • 00:08:55.050 --> 00:08:55.280
  • Now, I want to go back in time
  • 00:08:55.280 --> 00:08:58.020
  • to our first week of marriage.
  • 00:08:58.020 --> 00:09:00.060
  • My amazing wife, Chelsea,
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:02.120
  • you hopefully got to get to know
  • 00:09:02.120 --> 00:09:04.230
  • her a little bit this morning
  • 00:09:04.230 --> 00:09:05.280
  • or this afternoon.
  • 00:09:05.280 --> 00:09:06.230
  • And Chels is amazing, okay?
  • 00:09:06.230 --> 00:09:08.240
  • It's our first week.
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.010
  • And a little bit of background
  • 00:09:10.010 --> 00:09:11.090
  • if you don't know our story,
  • 00:09:11.090 --> 00:09:12.130
  • our moms were best friends.
  • 00:09:12.130 --> 00:09:13.160
  • They were pregnant together
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:14.210
  • at the same time.
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.080
  • They thought, "Wouldn't it be
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:17.000
  • awesome if we had a boy and a
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.040
  • girl and we got them married?"
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:19.150
  • Okay so, I'm a product of
  • 00:09:19.150 --> 00:09:21.060
  • arranged marriages, okay?
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:23.030
  • Literally that marriages plural,
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:25.050
  • one arranged marriage, okay?
  • 00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:27.160
  • So, I'm totally pro
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:28.200
  • arranged marriage.
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:30.090
  • So, we get married and,
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:31.180
  • of course, we get married young.
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:32.280
  • Now, for those of you that maybe
  • 00:09:32.280 --> 00:09:34.080
  • are new to Christian, are kind
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.120
  • of considering Christianity,
  • 00:09:35.120 --> 00:09:36.190
  • you need to understand something
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:38.000
  • about us Christians, okay?
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:38.230
  • We get married young,
  • 00:09:38.230 --> 00:09:41.120
  • a lot of us do.
  • 00:09:41.120 --> 00:09:42.170
  • A lot of people are like,
  • 00:09:42.170 --> 00:09:43.070
  • "Why do Christians always
  • 00:09:43.070 --> 00:09:44.050
  • do that?"
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:44.250
  • There's only one reason we do
  • 00:09:44.250 --> 00:09:46.070
  • that because the Bible tells us
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:48.280
  • we're not supposed to get it on
  • 00:09:48.280 --> 00:09:51.010
  • unless we're married so we get
  • 00:09:51.010 --> 00:09:53.240
  • It is what it is, okay?
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:09:59.060
  • If you meet a couple that are
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:00.020
  • 20 and they're married,
  • 00:10:00.020 --> 00:10:01.030
  • just call it out, "Christian?"
  • 00:10:01.030 --> 00:10:03.070
  • - Judah: I didn't know this
  • 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:08.060
  • a week in but when your wife
  • 00:10:08.060 --> 00:10:09.080
  • asks for kind of a spontaneous
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:12.160
  • dinner, it's not spontaneous.
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:15.190
  • She's been planning and plotting
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:17.010
  • this from the day you got home
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:18.230
  • from your honeymoon?
  • 00:10:18.230 --> 00:10:19.290
  • "Want to go to dinner?"
  • 00:10:19.290 --> 00:10:21.050
  • I go, "Yeah."
  • 00:10:21.050 --> 00:10:22.050
  • And we're about to have
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:23.070
  • - Judah: Jesus says in Matthew,
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.090
  • "I will build my church."
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:06.260
  • Boy, that sounds so awesome.
  • 00:21:06.260 --> 00:21:08.040
  • "Oh yeah,
  • 00:21:08.040 --> 00:21:08.240
  • build your church, Jesus.
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:10.060
  • Wait, I have to love who?"
  • 00:21:11.130 --> 00:21:14.130
  • But that's God's plan, isn't it?
  • 00:21:14.130 --> 00:21:17.060
  • What's so beautiful about the
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:18.240
  • sisterhood is that you're
  • 00:21:19.100 --> 00:21:22.100
  • committed one to another to say
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:24.090
  • we're gonna have--I mean am I
  • 00:21:24.090 --> 00:21:25.100
  • the only one that finds it
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:26.200
  • absolutely spellbinding to watch
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:28.250
  • all of these women who standing
  • 00:21:28.250 --> 00:21:31.000
  • on this stage looking at one
  • 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:32.240
  • another with those eyes of love
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:34.270
  • because they've been friends for
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:36.170
  • 20-plus years, who are pointing
  • 00:21:39.050 --> 00:21:42.050
  • out young girls who were born
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:44.190
  • Am I the only one
  • 00:21:47.190 --> 00:21:48.190
  • that's like whoa?
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:49.230
  • And why are we impressed?
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:52.230
  • Because that's hard to do.
  • 00:21:52.230 --> 00:21:55.190
  • It's hard to just not go,
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:57.070
  • "I don't think this is gonna
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:21:58.100
  • work for me.
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:21:59.070
  • You have your own opinion and
  • 00:21:59.070 --> 00:22:00.230
  • it's different than mine and
  • 00:22:00.230 --> 00:22:01.280
  • I don't like it, so I will move
  • 00:22:01.280 --> 00:22:04.250
  • now and find people who will
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:08.030
  • just do what I want them to do.
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:10.060
  • Relationships are hard.
  • 00:22:16.140 --> 00:22:19.140
  • Loving people can be hard, but
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:23.060
  • it is God's plan on the ground
  • 00:22:24.080 --> 00:22:27.080
  • to extend his message of love
  • 00:22:27.180 --> 00:22:30.180
  • to the earth.
  • 00:22:30.180 --> 00:22:32.100
  • Now, that takes us to three,
  • 00:22:32.100 --> 00:22:34.180
  • a succession of three raw social
  • 00:22:34.180 --> 00:22:36.240
  • scenes with the original crew,
  • 00:22:36.250 --> 00:22:39.250
  • with the original entourage
  • 00:22:39.250 --> 00:22:42.050
  • that rolled with Jesus.
  • 00:22:42.050 --> 00:22:43.100
  • Now, if you're not familiar
  • 00:22:43.100 --> 00:22:44.250
  • with the 12 disciples,
  • 00:22:44.250 --> 00:22:46.020
  • I don't know all of their names.
  • 00:22:46.020 --> 00:22:47.150
  • I don't know, very few preachers
  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:48.250
  • even know all 12
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:49.240
  • because not all 12 got a lot
  • 00:22:49.240 --> 00:22:51.020
  • of camera time at all, okay?
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:52.290
  • We know Peter, James, and John,
  • 00:22:52.290 --> 00:22:54.210
  • Bartholomew, Philip, Andrew,
  • 00:22:55.110 --> 00:22:58.110
  • that's about it for me, okay?
  • 00:22:58.110 --> 00:22:59.160
  • But there's 12 guys.
  • 00:22:59.160 --> 00:23:01.120
  • We think Peter's the only one
  • 00:23:01.120 --> 00:23:02.290
  • over 21 years old but what Jesus
  • 00:23:02.290 --> 00:23:05.070
  • is doing, totally intentional,
  • 00:23:05.070 --> 00:23:07.010
  • he pick this ragtag,
  • 00:23:07.010 --> 00:23:08.140
  • motley crew, average,
  • 00:23:08.140 --> 00:23:09.190
  • ordinary young guys, okay.
  • 00:23:09.190 --> 00:23:11.100
  • They're teenagers and he calls
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:13.160
  • them and what he's gonna do
  • 00:23:13.160 --> 00:23:14.220
  • is they're gonna live
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:15.240
  • life together.
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:16.140
  • It's gonna get messy.
  • 00:23:16.140 --> 00:23:17.180
  • It's gonna get awkward.
  • 00:23:17.180 --> 00:23:18.190
  • It's gonna get embarrassing and
  • 00:23:18.190 --> 00:23:20.020
  • annoying, but they're gonna do
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:21.100
  • life together for 3 years
  • 00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:23.040
  • and they are literally like
  • 00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:24.030
  • little ducklings.
  • 00:23:24.030 --> 00:23:25.010
  • They're gonna follow Jesus,
  • 00:23:25.010 --> 00:23:26.230
  • the promised Messiah, around in
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:29.220
  • the known world and he is going
  • 00:23:29.220 --> 00:23:31.150
  • to declare his arrival.
  • 00:23:31.150 --> 00:23:34.030
  • And then there's gonna be this
  • 00:23:34.030 --> 00:23:36.110
  • climactic conclusion with
  • 00:23:36.110 --> 00:23:37.150
  • the death, burial,
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:38.190
  • resurrection, ascension.
  • 00:23:38.190 --> 00:23:39.120
  • After the ascension, Jesus,
  • 00:23:39.120 --> 00:23:41.040
  • with the Holy Spirit, will say,
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:42.050
  • "Okay, 12 little ducklings,
  • 00:23:42.050 --> 00:23:44.030
  • it's time to fly."
  • 00:23:44.030 --> 00:23:45.280
  • And they will go to the ends
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:47.090
  • of the earth and start
  • 00:23:47.090 --> 00:23:49.010
  • Jesus communities
  • 00:23:49.010 --> 00:23:51.070
  • and it will multiply.
  • 00:23:51.070 --> 00:23:52.240
  • And the story of his love will
  • 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:54.110
  • go to the ends of the earth.
  • 00:23:54.110 --> 00:23:55.210
  • And when he returns, far more
  • 00:23:55.210 --> 00:23:57.280
  • will worship him and call him
  • 00:23:57.280 --> 00:23:59.160
  • God than not, right?
  • 00:23:59.160 --> 00:24:01.160
  • So, that's the plan
  • 00:24:01.160 --> 00:24:02.120
  • and we're extension of that plan
  • 00:24:02.120 --> 00:24:04.210
  • right here.
  • 00:24:04.210 --> 00:24:06.030
  • Sisterhood is in the jetstream
  • 00:24:06.130 --> 00:24:09.130
  • of God's expansion plan.
  • 00:24:09.130 --> 00:24:11.260
  • It's exactly what God has always
  • 00:24:11.260 --> 00:24:14.210
  • been doing, is currently doing,
  • 00:24:14.210 --> 00:24:17.060
  • and will keep doing.
  • 00:24:17.060 --> 00:24:19.030
  • Through committed relationships,
  • 00:24:19.030 --> 00:24:21.100
  • we will shoulder to shoulder,
  • 00:24:21.100 --> 00:24:22.260
  • hand in hand, carry the message
  • 00:24:22.260 --> 00:24:24.120
  • of Jesus' love but it's not as,
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:27.220
  • how should I say?
  • 00:24:27.220 --> 00:24:28.230
  • You know what I mean?
  • 00:24:35.090 --> 00:24:35.290
  • Like, at Colour it's like,
  • 00:24:35.290 --> 00:24:37.020
  • "Oh, it's gonna
  • 00:24:37.020 --> 00:24:37.220
  • be amazing.
  • 00:24:37.220 --> 00:24:38.160
  • I can't wait to go on
  • 00:24:38.160 --> 00:24:39.220
  • mission trips with you
  • 00:24:39.220 --> 00:24:42.060
  • and together we'll just,
  • 00:24:42.060 --> 00:24:43.100
  • it'll be amazing."
  • 00:24:45.020 --> 00:24:48.020
  • But someone up there is really
  • 00:24:49.050 --> 00:24:52.050
  • enjoying that.
  • 00:24:52.050 --> 00:24:53.030
  • I just want to say, thank you.
  • 00:24:53.030 --> 00:24:54.270
  • God bless you.
  • 00:24:56.180 --> 00:24:59.180
  • So, these three raw
  • 00:24:59.180 --> 00:25:00.210
  • social scenes, okay?
  • 00:25:00.210 --> 00:25:01.200
  • And it's a succession
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:02.170
  • and I think it's
  • 00:25:02.170 --> 00:25:03.070
  • completely intentional.
  • 00:25:03.070 --> 00:25:03.280
  • We're gonna go to Luke chapter 9
  • 00:25:03.280 --> 00:25:05.090
  • and I'll just kind of start
  • 00:25:05.090 --> 00:25:06.200
  • filling you on the story.
  • 00:25:06.200 --> 00:25:07.160
  • Now, Luke chapter 9's
  • 00:25:07.160 --> 00:25:08.100
  • a very significant chapter in
  • 00:25:08.100 --> 00:25:09.250
  • Dr. Luke's record of the gospel.
  • 00:25:09.250 --> 00:25:11.260
  • The mission, the mandate, and
  • 00:25:11.260 --> 00:25:13.120
  • the message of Jesus Christ
  • 00:25:13.120 --> 00:25:14.190
  • is very significant, okay,
  • 00:25:14.190 --> 00:25:15.240
  • 'cause Luke chapter 9
  • 00:25:15.240 --> 00:25:17.170
  • is where Jesus starts off
  • 00:25:17.170 --> 00:25:19.110
  • in Luke 9 and he tells
  • 00:25:19.110 --> 00:25:21.140
  • the 12 dudes, "Okay, it's time
  • 00:25:21.140 --> 00:25:23.060
  • to practice.
  • 00:25:23.060 --> 00:25:24.120
  • It's time to practice.
  • 00:25:24.120 --> 00:25:25.200
  • I'm gonna give you power
  • 00:25:25.200 --> 00:25:26.230
  • and authority, okay?
  • 00:25:26.230 --> 00:25:28.290
  • You got it?
  • 00:25:28.290 --> 00:25:29.240
  • Now go."
  • 00:25:29.240 --> 00:25:30.240
  • It's like, I can see like
  • 00:25:30.240 --> 00:25:31.290
  • the 12 guys like,
  • 00:25:31.290 --> 00:25:33.010
  • "Okay, we'll be back soon."
  • 00:25:33.010 --> 00:25:34.230
  • He's like, "Okay, let me know
  • 00:25:34.230 --> 00:25:35.270
  • how it goes."
  • 00:25:35.270 --> 00:25:36.240
  • And they just kind of scatter
  • 00:25:36.240 --> 00:25:39.010
  • into little townships
  • 00:25:39.010 --> 00:25:40.000
  • and communities.
  • 00:25:40.000 --> 00:25:40.240
  • And they come back and they tell
  • 00:25:40.240 --> 00:25:42.120
  • Jesus, like, "This stuff works.
  • 00:25:42.120 --> 00:25:44.060
  • Like, I don't know, you touched
  • 00:25:44.060 --> 00:25:45.040
  • me and I got it, okay?
  • 00:25:45.040 --> 00:25:46.220
  • It's amazing."
  • 00:25:46.220 --> 00:25:48.060
  • And Jesus is like,
  • 00:25:48.060 --> 00:25:49.040
  • "That's great.
  • 00:25:49.040 --> 00:25:49.240
  • I'm proud of you guys.
  • 00:25:49.240 --> 00:25:51.050
  • Baby steps.
  • 00:25:51.050 --> 00:25:51.270
  • We're gonna really extend
  • 00:25:51.270 --> 00:25:52.280
  • the message.
  • 00:25:52.280 --> 00:25:53.180
  • It's gonna be great."
  • 00:25:53.180 --> 00:25:54.140
  • But they really don't have
  • 00:25:54.140 --> 00:25:55.040
  • any idea, do they?
  • 00:25:55.040 --> 00:25:56.130
  • They really don't.
  • 00:25:56.130 --> 00:25:57.190
  • Jesus feeds the 5.000 and
  • 00:25:57.190 --> 00:25:59.100
  • there's these amazing moments
  • 00:25:59.100 --> 00:26:01.000
  • in Luke 9.
  • 00:26:01.000 --> 00:26:01.200
  • And then he does something
  • 00:26:01.200 --> 00:26:03.280
  • really confusing.
  • 00:26:03.280 --> 00:26:05.290
  • He's gonna go on a mountain,
  • 00:26:05.290 --> 00:26:07.060
  • it's called
  • 00:26:07.060 --> 00:26:07.260
  • the Mount of Transfiguration,
  • 00:26:07.260 --> 00:26:09.060
  • and the disciples don't know
  • 00:26:09.060 --> 00:26:11.160
  • this, but Moses and Elijah,
  • 00:26:11.160 --> 00:26:13.050
  • two of the most considerable
  • 00:26:13.050 --> 00:26:14.040
  • Jewish figures ever are going to
  • 00:26:14.040 --> 00:26:16.030
  • appear, okay?
  • 00:26:16.030 --> 00:26:17.060
  • And Jesus picks his favorite
  • 00:26:17.060 --> 00:26:19.130
  • 3 of the 12.
  • 00:26:19.130 --> 00:26:21.270
  • How's this for like unfair?
  • 00:26:21.270 --> 00:26:23.110
  • He's like, "Peter, James, John,
  • 00:26:23.110 --> 00:26:24.260
  • come on."
  • 00:26:24.260 --> 00:26:25.230
  • Bart's like,
  • 00:26:25.230 --> 00:26:26.130
  • Bartholomew's like, "Me?"
  • 00:26:26.130 --> 00:26:27.080
  • He's like, "Nah, not you, Bart,
  • 00:26:27.080 --> 00:26:28.250
  • not today, buddy."
  • 00:26:28.250 --> 00:26:31.060
  • He takes Peter, James, and John
  • 00:26:31.060 --> 00:26:32.110
  • up on the mountain.
  • 00:26:32.110 --> 00:26:33.000
  • Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
  • 00:26:33.080 --> 00:26:36.080
  • Right, and they have like this
  • 00:26:36.080 --> 00:26:37.080
  • Disney moment on the mountain.
  • 00:26:37.080 --> 00:26:39.180
  • And they come back down the
  • 00:26:39.180 --> 00:26:40.170
  • mountain and nine are at
  • 00:26:40.170 --> 00:26:41.210
  • the bottom of the hill wishing
  • 00:26:41.210 --> 00:26:43.260
  • Meanwhile, at the bottom
  • 00:26:45.280 --> 00:26:47.110
  • of the mountain,
  • 00:26:47.110 --> 00:26:48.110
  • these nine remaining
  • 00:26:48.110 --> 00:26:50.030
  • not-so-favored disciples are
  • 00:26:50.030 --> 00:26:52.230
  • approached by a dad whose son
  • 00:26:52.230 --> 00:26:54.140
  • has a demon
  • 00:26:54.140 --> 00:26:55.120
  • and the Bible says the dad
  • 00:26:55.120 --> 00:26:56.250
  • begged him, begged the nine,
  • 00:26:56.250 --> 00:26:59.160
  • "Please, help my son!"
  • 00:26:59.160 --> 00:27:01.260
  • And the nine
  • 00:27:01.260 --> 00:27:03.000
  • stood there like this...
  • 00:27:03.290 --> 00:27:06.290
  • "Jesus is not in today,
  • 00:27:06.290 --> 00:27:09.080
  • but he'll probably
  • 00:27:09.080 --> 00:27:10.100
  • Jesus comes down the mountain,
  • 00:27:14.140 --> 00:27:15.210
  • as the story goes, and the dad
  • 00:27:15.210 --> 00:27:17.290
  • brings his demonized son.
  • 00:27:17.290 --> 00:27:19.290
  • He's like, "Hey, hey, hey, hey."
  • 00:27:19.290 --> 00:27:21.120
  • I love how he just adds this.
  • 00:27:21.120 --> 00:27:22.180
  • This is such a dude thing to do.
  • 00:27:22.180 --> 00:27:24.020
  • He's like,
  • 00:27:24.020 --> 00:27:24.220
  • "Hey, my son has a demon.
  • 00:27:24.220 --> 00:27:26.020
  • I begged these nine.
  • 00:27:26.020 --> 00:27:27.220
  • They had nothing,
  • 00:27:27.220 --> 00:27:28.120
  • nothing to offer at all.
  • 00:27:28.120 --> 00:27:29.200
  • Could you please help him?"
  • 00:27:29.200 --> 00:27:32.090
  • Make matters worse, Jesus looks
  • 00:27:32.090 --> 00:27:33.180
  • at the guys, he's like,
  • 00:27:33.180 --> 00:27:34.080
  • "Really, guys?"
  • 00:27:34.080 --> 00:27:34.280
  • And they're like, "I know.
  • 00:27:34.280 --> 00:27:35.200
  • You didn't tell us how
  • 00:27:35.200 --> 00:27:37.130
  • to do that.
  • 00:27:37.130 --> 00:27:38.100
  • He's a very scary young man,
  • 00:27:38.100 --> 00:27:40.240
  • you know?"
  • 00:27:40.240 --> 00:27:41.140
  • [laughing]
  • 00:27:41.140 --> 00:27:43.070
  • I enjoyed that one.
  • 00:27:43.070 --> 00:27:45.090
  • Then he, so, with one word
  • 00:27:45.090 --> 00:27:47.260
  • he's like, "Come out."
  • 00:27:47.260 --> 00:27:49.040
  • And like, I can imagine the
  • 00:27:49.040 --> 00:27:50.270
  • boy's like, everything's fine.
  • 00:27:50.270 --> 00:27:52.080
  • And the nine go,
  • 00:27:52.080 --> 00:27:54.100
  • "Oh boy, that was too easy."
  • 00:27:54.100 --> 00:27:55.150
  • You know like, ouch.
  • 00:27:55.290 --> 00:27:58.290
  • And then Jesus gets his guys
  • 00:27:59.150 --> 00:28:02.170
  • together and he says,
  • 00:28:02.180 --> 00:28:05.180
  • "The Son of Man is
  • 00:28:05.180 --> 00:28:07.260
  • about to be handed over."
  • 00:28:07.260 --> 00:28:10.180
  • And they're like,
  • 00:28:10.180 --> 00:28:12.050
  • "What does that mean?"
  • 00:28:12.050 --> 00:28:14.150
  • They had a lot
  • 00:28:14.150 --> 00:28:15.180
  • of these moments, okay?
  • 00:28:15.180 --> 00:28:16.240
  • Son of Man about to be
  • 00:28:16.240 --> 00:28:17.290
  • handed over.
  • 00:28:17.290 --> 00:28:19.030
  • "What does that mean?"
  • 00:28:19.030 --> 00:28:20.080
  • And they're all like,
  • 00:28:20.080 --> 00:28:21.100
  • "I don't know."
  • 00:28:21.100 --> 00:28:22.190
  • So, the next three scenes, and
  • 00:28:22.190 --> 00:28:24.010
  • this is where we're soon to
  • 00:28:24.010 --> 00:28:25.240
  • close and land the plane.
  • 00:28:25.240 --> 00:28:28.100
  • The very next scene after Jesus
  • 00:28:28.100 --> 00:28:29.250
  • is predicting his death, burial,
  • 00:28:29.250 --> 00:28:32.030
  • and resurrection, ascension,
  • 00:28:32.030 --> 00:28:33.130
  • the camera pans
  • 00:28:33.130 --> 00:28:35.000
  • and our next scene
  • 00:28:35.000 --> 00:28:36.090
  • that we are served up by
  • 00:28:36.090 --> 00:28:37.250
  • Dr. Luke is what?
  • 00:28:37.250 --> 00:28:38.200
  • All 12 sitting around saying,
  • 00:28:38.200 --> 00:28:40.070
  • "Who do you think will be
  • 00:28:40.070 --> 00:28:41.010
  • the most famous of us?"
  • 00:28:41.010 --> 00:28:43.130
  • This literally happened.
  • 00:28:43.130 --> 00:28:45.050
  • Now, you can't hardly blame
  • 00:28:45.050 --> 00:28:46.150
  • these guys because, hello,
  • 00:28:46.150 --> 00:28:48.160
  • Jesus already chose
  • 00:28:48.160 --> 00:28:49.190
  • his top three.
  • 00:28:49.190 --> 00:28:51.060
  • He left the nine squandering
  • 00:28:51.060 --> 00:28:52.240
  • at the bottom of the mountain
  • 00:28:52.240 --> 00:28:53.190
  • with no power at all.
  • 00:28:53.190 --> 00:28:55.230
  • "So, like, who do you think's
  • 00:28:55.230 --> 00:28:56.140
  • gonna be the most famous?"
  • 00:28:56.140 --> 00:28:57.120
  • And before we know it, we have
  • 00:28:57.120 --> 00:28:59.100
  • this succession of three social
  • 00:28:59.100 --> 00:29:01.270
  • scenes that I think are
  • 00:29:01.270 --> 00:29:02.270
  • absolutely imperative.
  • 00:29:02.270 --> 00:29:04.030
  • In fact, you'll find by the time
  • 00:29:04.030 --> 00:29:05.270
  • we get to Luke chapter 10,
  • 00:29:05.270 --> 00:29:07.210
  • Jesus will extend
  • 00:29:07.210 --> 00:29:08.280
  • the 12 to 72 more.
  • 00:29:09.220 --> 00:29:12.220
  • But I believe it is imperative
  • 00:29:12.220 --> 00:29:13.290
  • before the expansion, I just
  • 00:29:13.290 --> 00:29:15.160
  • want to say this prophetically,
  • 00:29:15.160 --> 00:29:17.030
  • if I could be so bold,
  • 00:29:17.030 --> 00:29:18.170
  • that I think the next 20 years
  • 00:29:18.170 --> 00:29:20.200
  • and the expansion globally
  • 00:29:20.200 --> 00:29:22.100
  • of Sisterhood,
  • 00:29:22.100 --> 00:29:23.270
  • the what is absolutely essential
  • 00:29:23.270 --> 00:29:26.070
  • in this expansion plan
  • 00:29:26.070 --> 00:29:27.280
  • is these three levels of love.
  • 00:29:31.120 --> 00:29:34.120
  • The first scene, Jesus,
  • 00:29:34.120 --> 00:29:36.170
  • I believe, allows because he's
  • 00:29:36.170 --> 00:29:38.090
  • trying to teach them something.
  • 00:29:38.090 --> 00:29:39.170
  • Number one, this army of love,
  • 00:29:41.040 --> 00:29:44.040
  • this army of goodness that
  • 00:29:44.040 --> 00:29:45.140
  • starts with 12 that will soon be
  • 00:29:45.140 --> 00:29:47.210
  • millions around the earth,
  • 00:29:47.210 --> 00:29:49.170
  • it starts with loving each other
  • 00:29:50.280 --> 00:29:53.280
  • and not sabotaging the message,
  • 00:29:54.010 --> 00:29:57.010
  • sabotaging the narrative
  • 00:29:57.010 --> 00:29:58.260
  • in the story by comparing
  • 00:29:58.260 --> 00:30:00.290
  • and competing.
  • 00:30:00.290 --> 00:30:03.250
  • And I just want to say this that
  • 00:30:03.250 --> 00:30:05.060
  • God will always do this,
  • 00:30:05.060 --> 00:30:06.260
  • some days you're gonna be
  • 00:30:06.260 --> 00:30:08.210
  • a part of three that go up,
  • 00:30:08.230 --> 00:30:11.230
  • and some days
  • 00:30:11.230 --> 00:30:13.220
  • you'll be a part of the nine,
  • 00:30:13.220 --> 00:30:15.110
  • wishing you were part
  • 00:30:15.110 --> 00:30:17.230
  • of the three going up.
  • 00:30:17.230 --> 00:30:19.240
  • And meanwhile when they're gone,
  • 00:30:19.240 --> 00:30:22.050
  • you will be reminded that you
  • 00:30:23.140 --> 00:30:26.140
  • don't know as much as you
  • 00:30:26.140 --> 00:30:28.050
  • thought you knew, and you will
  • 00:30:28.050 --> 00:30:30.290
  • be very frustrated because,
  • 00:30:30.290 --> 00:30:33.120
  • "Jesus, that is not nice of you
  • 00:30:33.120 --> 00:30:35.030
  • and you've picked favorites."
  • 00:30:35.030 --> 00:30:37.210
  • Someday you'll be in the nine,
  • 00:30:37.210 --> 00:30:40.020
  • some days you'll be
  • 00:30:40.020 --> 00:30:40.200
  • in the three.
  • 00:30:40.200 --> 00:30:42.040
  • And they said, "Well, who do you
  • 00:30:42.040 --> 00:30:43.150
  • think is gonna be
  • 00:30:43.150 --> 00:30:44.090
  • the most famous?"
  • 00:30:44.090 --> 00:30:45.090
  • And Jesus brings a child
  • 00:30:45.090 --> 00:30:46.160
  • and he says, which is very much
  • 00:30:46.160 --> 00:30:49.060
  • marginalized people grew up in
  • 00:30:49.060 --> 00:30:50.160
  • those days, kids were to be seen
  • 00:30:50.160 --> 00:30:52.070
  • and not heard.
  • 00:30:52.070 --> 00:30:52.250
  • He says, "Unless you become like
  • 00:30:52.250 --> 00:30:53.150
  • a child, you won't understand,
  • 00:30:53.150 --> 00:30:55.010
  • and accept, and receive
  • 00:30:55.010 --> 00:30:55.230
  • what I'm doing."
  • 00:30:55.230 --> 00:30:56.280
  • Translation, you need to love
  • 00:30:56.280 --> 00:30:58.210
  • each other.
  • 00:30:58.210 --> 00:31:00.110
  • Sometimes I would much rather
  • 00:31:00.110 --> 00:31:01.180
  • sponsor a compassion kid
  • 00:31:01.180 --> 00:31:03.040
  • than call my cousin.
  • 00:31:05.240 --> 00:31:08.240
  • Do you know what I mean?
  • 00:31:08.240 --> 00:31:09.240
  • Like, "Yeah, I can't stand my
  • 00:31:09.240 --> 00:31:12.010
  • cousins, but give me another
  • 00:31:12.010 --> 00:31:13.010
  • compassion kid.
  • 00:31:13.010 --> 00:31:13.210
  • It just makes me feel better.
  • 00:31:13.210 --> 00:31:15.190
  • My neighbor?
  • 00:31:15.190 --> 00:31:16.160
  • Oh, they--you should see where
  • 00:31:16.160 --> 00:31:17.220
  • they put their fence.
  • 00:31:17.220 --> 00:31:18.190
  • It's ridiculous.
  • 00:31:18.190 --> 00:31:19.240
  • It's like 10 feet
  • 00:31:19.240 --> 00:31:20.240
  • on my property.
  • 00:31:20.240 --> 00:31:21.160
  • Yeah, compassion kid.
  • 00:31:21.160 --> 00:31:22.250
  • Over here."
  • 00:31:22.250 --> 00:31:25.090
  • - Judah: We will love
  • 00:31:30.130 --> 00:31:31.040
  • each other.
  • 00:31:31.040 --> 00:31:31.290
  • We'll love people
  • 00:31:31.290 --> 00:31:32.230
  • from other groups.
  • 00:31:32.230 --> 00:31:33.190
  • And we'll love those
  • 00:31:33.190 --> 00:31:34.140
  • who oppose us
  • 00:31:34.140 --> 00:31:35.240
  • and misunderstand us
  • 00:31:35.240 --> 00:31:37.140
  • and marginalize us
  • 00:31:37.140 --> 00:31:39.070
  • and wish us harm
  • 00:31:39.070 --> 00:31:40.290
  • - Judah: Number one,
  • 00:31:54.030 --> 00:31:55.010
  • first lesson of love
  • 00:31:55.010 --> 00:31:56.270
  • in the expansion plan, we're
  • 00:31:56.270 --> 00:31:58.060
  • gonna have to love each other.
  • 00:31:58.060 --> 00:31:59.010
  • Number two, John says,
  • 00:31:59.200 --> 00:32:02.220
  • "Jesus, I ran into some guys
  • 00:32:02.220 --> 00:32:03.250
  • Jesus was like,
  • 00:32:05.280 --> 00:32:07.010
  • "I'm sorry, what?"
  • 00:32:07.010 --> 00:32:08.000
  • "I ran into some guys who were
  • 00:32:08.000 --> 00:32:09.070
  • trying to do what we do, not
  • 00:32:09.070 --> 00:32:11.180
  • very good, but they were trying
  • 00:32:11.180 --> 00:32:12.100
  • to be us, and they're not us.
  • 00:32:12.100 --> 00:32:13.150
  • And so, I just want you to know
  • 00:32:13.150 --> 00:32:14.120
  • I just told them, hey, hey, hey,
  • 00:32:14.120 --> 00:32:16.200
  • I don't think so, slugger.
  • 00:32:16.200 --> 00:32:18.050
  • You're not in the crew."
  • 00:32:18.050 --> 00:32:20.280
  • Jesus says, "You did what?"
  • 00:32:20.280 --> 00:32:23.210
  • He says, "Yeah, they're not in
  • 00:32:23.210 --> 00:32:24.130
  • our group so I told them,
  • 00:32:24.140 --> 00:32:27.140
  • Are we gonna take the message
  • 00:32:33.280 --> 00:32:34.190
  • around the world?
  • 00:32:34.190 --> 00:32:37.090
  • We gotta stop drawing lines
  • 00:32:37.090 --> 00:32:38.180
  • that Jesus never drew.
  • 00:32:39.080 --> 00:32:42.080
  • "Well, you know,
  • 00:32:42.080 --> 00:32:42.230
  • at our church, we--oh, well,
  • 00:32:42.230 --> 00:32:45.170
  • you know, she doesn't go
  • 00:32:45.170 --> 00:32:46.150
  • to our church anymore.
  • 00:32:46.190 --> 00:32:49.190
  • Well, you know, how we,
  • 00:32:49.190 --> 00:32:50.280
  • what we believe,
  • 00:32:50.280 --> 00:32:52.130
  • you know, we're different,
  • 00:32:52.130 --> 00:32:53.100
  • theologically, you know
  • 00:32:53.100 --> 00:32:54.100
  • biblically we--"
  • 00:32:54.100 --> 00:32:56.240
  • We gotta love each other.
  • 00:32:56.240 --> 00:32:58.280
  • The next level, if we're going
  • 00:32:58.280 --> 00:33:00.140
  • to be a part of the expansion
  • 00:33:00.140 --> 00:33:02.060
  • plan in getting the story of
  • 00:33:02.060 --> 00:33:03.110
  • love to the ends of the earth,
  • 00:33:03.110 --> 00:33:04.230
  • we've gotta love people
  • 00:33:04.230 --> 00:33:06.000
  • from other groups!
  • 00:33:06.000 --> 00:33:08.270
  • And Jesus says, "Hey, hey,
  • 00:33:08.270 --> 00:33:10.060
  • unless they get in your face
  • 00:33:10.060 --> 00:33:12.130
  • and say I hate your guts,
  • 00:33:12.130 --> 00:33:14.090
  • just assume
  • 00:33:14.090 --> 00:33:15.120
  • they're on the same team."
  • 00:33:15.150 --> 00:33:18.150
  • I thought, what a big
  • 00:33:18.150 --> 00:33:19.110
  • perspective to have.
  • 00:33:19.110 --> 00:33:20.280
  • As carriers of the good news and
  • 00:33:20.280 --> 00:33:22.230
  • the love of Jesus, what if we
  • 00:33:22.230 --> 00:33:24.210
  • lived with a perspective that
  • 00:33:24.210 --> 00:33:25.270
  • said, "Unless somebody
  • 00:33:25.270 --> 00:33:27.130
  • absolutely fundamentally
  • 00:33:27.130 --> 00:33:28.220
  • gets in my face and says,
  • 00:33:28.220 --> 00:33:29.280
  • 'I hate your guts
  • 00:33:29.280 --> 00:33:30.170
  • and I don't like you,
  • 00:33:30.170 --> 00:33:31.150
  • I'm gonna assume
  • 00:33:31.150 --> 00:33:32.190
  • they're on the team.
  • 00:33:32.190 --> 00:33:33.250
  • We're in this together
  • 00:33:33.250 --> 00:33:35.050
  • and what a thrill."
  • 00:33:35.050 --> 00:33:37.140
  • What if you lived that way?
  • 00:33:37.140 --> 00:33:38.050
  • Wow, what a way to live.
  • 00:33:40.120 --> 00:33:43.120
  • And even when people say they
  • 00:33:43.120 --> 00:33:44.110
  • hate your guts you're like,
  • 00:33:44.110 --> 00:33:45.100
  • "Oh, you don't mean it.
  • 00:33:45.100 --> 00:33:46.070
  • We're on the same team.
  • 00:33:50.220 --> 00:33:53.200
  • Wow.
  • 00:33:53.200 --> 00:33:55.000
  • Lastly, and I'm done.
  • 00:33:55.000 --> 00:33:57.200
  • Lastly--and Jesus meant
  • 00:33:58.070 --> 00:34:01.090
  • all this.
  • 00:34:01.090 --> 00:34:02.000
  • He knew what was happening.
  • 00:34:02.000 --> 00:34:03.050
  • "Who's gonna be
  • 00:34:03.050 --> 00:34:03.200
  • the most famous?"
  • 00:34:03.200 --> 00:34:04.260
  • "I saw people from other groups
  • 00:34:04.260 --> 00:34:05.270
  • trying to act like they have
  • 00:34:05.270 --> 00:34:07.090
  • something to contribute.
  • 00:34:07.090 --> 00:34:09.190
  • They are not from our church
  • 00:34:09.190 --> 00:34:11.290
  • so I told them to stop."
  • 00:34:11.290 --> 00:34:14.070
  • Jesus says, "Don't you do it."
  • 00:34:14.070 --> 00:34:15.160
  • But the last social scene,
  • 00:34:15.160 --> 00:34:17.170
  • Jesus rebukes
  • 00:34:18.110 --> 00:34:21.110
  • his small community of young men
  • 00:34:21.110 --> 00:34:23.170
  • because, you know what?
  • 00:34:23.170 --> 00:34:24.070
  • They went through Samaria.
  • 00:34:24.070 --> 00:34:25.290
  • Marginalized people grew up
  • 00:34:25.290 --> 00:34:27.070
  • that the Jews just didn't like
  • 00:34:27.070 --> 00:34:29.000
  • and they had disdain for.
  • 00:34:29.000 --> 00:34:30.090
  • And they went through Samaria.
  • 00:34:30.090 --> 00:34:32.100
  • Jesus meant to, he's like,
  • 00:34:32.100 --> 00:34:33.040
  • "Come on, boys,
  • 00:34:33.040 --> 00:34:33.240
  • we're gonna go through
  • 00:34:33.240 --> 00:34:34.140
  • Samaria now on our way
  • 00:34:34.140 --> 00:34:35.200
  • to Jerusalem.
  • 00:34:35.200 --> 00:34:36.110
  • I'm gonna die for the sins
  • 00:34:36.110 --> 00:34:37.110
  • of the world."
  • 00:34:37.110 --> 00:34:38.010
  • And on their way through,
  • 00:34:38.010 --> 00:34:39.120
  • wouldn't you just know it, those
  • 00:34:39.120 --> 00:34:40.270
  • Samaritans, they didn't show
  • 00:34:42.270 --> 00:34:45.270
  • Jesus the honor he deserved.
  • 00:34:45.270 --> 00:34:48.150
  • They disrespected Jesus.
  • 00:34:48.150 --> 00:34:51.020
  • They said stuff like
  • 00:34:51.020 --> 00:34:52.070
  • they didn't believe in him.
  • 00:34:52.070 --> 00:34:53.250
  • So, the 12 they thought,
  • 00:34:53.250 --> 00:34:55.070
  • "We're gonna defend our Jesus."
  • 00:34:55.070 --> 00:34:57.200
  • So, they stopped him, they said,
  • 00:34:57.200 --> 00:34:59.010
  • "Jesus, we see
  • 00:34:59.010 --> 00:34:59.210
  • what's going on here.
  • 00:34:59.210 --> 00:35:00.190
  • These people don't like you,
  • 00:35:00.190 --> 00:35:02.180
  • and they're not accepting you,
  • 00:35:02.180 --> 00:35:04.080
  • and they don't understand you
  • 00:35:04.080 --> 00:35:05.270
  • so we got a plan.
  • 00:35:05.270 --> 00:35:07.020
  • And the Bible says,
  • 00:35:14.210 --> 00:35:15.120
  • "Jesus says, 'No.'"
  • 00:35:15.120 --> 00:35:17.210
  • And one translation says,
  • 00:35:17.210 --> 00:35:19.010
  • "You don't know
  • 00:35:19.010 --> 00:35:19.260
  • what kind of spirit you are
  • 00:35:19.260 --> 00:35:20.240
  • right now, what kind of attitude
  • 00:35:20.240 --> 00:35:22.210
  • you've allowed to seep
  • 00:35:22.210 --> 00:35:24.080
  • into your mind.
  • 00:35:24.080 --> 00:35:25.120
  • You listen to me, I didn't come
  • 00:35:25.120 --> 00:35:26.220
  • to destroy men's lives,
  • 00:35:26.220 --> 00:35:28.070
  • I came to save them."
  • 00:35:28.070 --> 00:35:30.220
  • If we're gonna be a part
  • 00:35:30.220 --> 00:35:31.120
  • of God's expansion plan,
  • 00:35:31.120 --> 00:35:32.290
  • and I am telling you,
  • 00:35:32.290 --> 00:35:34.230
  • it doesn't take a prophet
  • 00:35:34.230 --> 00:35:36.210
  • to see that the next 20 years
  • 00:35:36.210 --> 00:35:39.070
  • will make the first 20 pale
  • 00:35:39.070 --> 00:35:42.040
  • in comparison.
  • 00:35:42.040 --> 00:35:44.030
  • The expectancy of what God
  • 00:35:44.030 --> 00:35:46.120
  • has ahead is enormous,
  • 00:35:46.120 --> 00:35:48.100
  • and the expansion
  • 00:35:48.100 --> 00:35:49.090
  • of the sisterhood,
  • 00:35:49.090 --> 00:35:50.140
  • and the globalization that is
  • 00:35:50.140 --> 00:35:52.220
  • about to happen, this message,
  • 00:35:52.220 --> 00:35:54.200
  • this mandate, this passion,
  • 00:35:54.200 --> 00:35:57.040
  • this desire to add value
  • 00:35:57.040 --> 00:35:59.150
  • to women around the world
  • 00:35:59.150 --> 00:36:00.290
  • who will in turn do the same,
  • 00:36:00.290 --> 00:36:02.130
  • it is going to expand
  • 00:36:02.130 --> 00:36:04.200
  • and mushroom and multiply.
  • 00:36:04.200 --> 00:36:07.120
  • It's gonna be extraordinary,
  • 00:36:07.120 --> 00:36:09.010
  • but I believe it will be marked
  • 00:36:09.010 --> 00:36:11.080
  • by the hallmark of our belief
  • 00:36:11.080 --> 00:36:14.040
  • system, which is love!
  • 00:36:14.260 --> 00:36:17.260
  • And they will see that we love
  • 00:36:17.260 --> 00:36:19.150
  • each other.
  • 00:36:19.150 --> 00:36:21.130
  • We love people
  • 00:36:21.130 --> 00:36:22.130
  • from other groups.
  • 00:36:22.130 --> 00:36:25.050
  • And lastly,
  • 00:36:25.050 --> 00:36:25.290
  • we love those who oppose us.
  • 00:36:27.180 --> 00:36:30.180
  • We love those who
  • 00:36:30.180 --> 00:36:31.210
  • misunderstand us.
  • 00:36:31.210 --> 00:36:32.250
  • Can you imagine, can you dream
  • 00:36:32.250 --> 00:36:34.240
  • with me for a minute, ladies?
  • 00:36:34.240 --> 00:36:37.090
  • What if the church took this on
  • 00:36:37.090 --> 00:36:39.010
  • and said, "We're going to be the
  • 00:36:39.010 --> 00:36:40.250
  • single people group in the earth
  • 00:36:40.250 --> 00:36:42.180
  • that love our enemies.
  • 00:36:43.050 --> 00:36:46.050
  • We're not gonna wish them harm,
  • 00:36:46.050 --> 00:36:47.090
  • we're gonna bless 'em.
  • 00:36:47.090 --> 00:36:48.250
  • We're gonna speak well of them.
  • 00:36:50.280 --> 00:36:52.060
  • We're going to live love."
  • 00:36:53.040 --> 00:36:56.040
  • Whoo-hoo-hoo!
  • 00:36:56.040 --> 00:36:58.280
  • This is God's expansion plan.
  • 00:36:58.280 --> 00:37:01.010
  • Come on, church.
  • 00:37:01.010 --> 00:37:01.250
  • We're gonna love each other.
  • 00:37:01.250 --> 00:37:03.130
  • Why?
  • 00:37:03.130 --> 00:37:04.030
  • We're gonna erase these
  • 00:37:06.060 --> 00:37:07.150
  • temporary lines.
  • 00:37:07.150 --> 00:37:09.250
  • They're not eternal lines,
  • 00:37:09.250 --> 00:37:11.270
  • they're temporary lines.
  • 00:37:11.270 --> 00:37:12.230
  • We're gonna get to heaven
  • 00:37:12.230 --> 00:37:13.130
  • and go, "Oh, oops.
  • 00:37:13.130 --> 00:37:16.060
  • Those lines were never drawn
  • 00:37:16.060 --> 00:37:17.260
  • by God."
  • 00:37:17.260 --> 00:37:19.000
  • We're gonna eliminate those
  • 00:37:19.000 --> 00:37:20.050
  • lines and them will become us,
  • 00:37:20.050 --> 00:37:23.000
  • and they will become us.
  • 00:37:23.000 --> 00:37:25.080
  • We will love each other.
  • 00:37:25.080 --> 00:37:26.170
  • We'll love people
  • 00:37:26.170 --> 00:37:27.170
  • from other groups.
  • 00:37:27.170 --> 00:37:28.180
  • And we'll love those
  • 00:37:28.180 --> 00:37:29.160
  • who oppose us
  • 00:37:29.160 --> 00:37:30.230
  • and misunderstand us
  • 00:37:30.230 --> 00:37:32.090
  • and marginalize us
  • 00:37:32.090 --> 00:37:34.090
  • and wish us harm.
  • 00:37:34.090 --> 00:37:35.270
  • And the gospel will grow
  • 00:37:36.250 --> 00:37:39.250
  • and the message will expand.
  • 00:37:39.250 --> 00:37:42.230
  • Ha-ha!
  • 00:37:42.230 --> 00:37:44.200
  • And no devil in hell
  • 00:37:44.200 --> 00:37:45.250
  • The hordes of hell have taken
  • 00:37:48.230 --> 00:37:50.020
  • notice of the sisterhood
  • 00:37:50.020 --> 00:37:52.120
  • but they have no idea the damage
  • 00:37:52.120 --> 00:37:53.290
  • that's about to be done.
  • 00:37:53.290 --> 00:37:55.240
  • Ha! Wait till we get another
  • 00:37:55.240 --> 00:37:58.160
  • 20 under our belt, you'll see.
  • 00:37:58.270 --> 00:38:01.290
  • It's been a perfect waiting
  • 00:38:02.040 --> 00:38:05.040
  • period, but I believe God
  • 00:38:05.040 --> 00:38:07.210
  • is raising up an army of love
  • 00:38:07.210 --> 00:38:09.240
  • and an army of goodness
  • 00:38:09.240 --> 00:38:11.240
  • to go to the ends of the earth.
  • 00:38:11.240 --> 00:38:14.050
  • And I believe the most
  • 00:38:14.050 --> 00:38:15.230
  • considerable media outlets will
  • 00:38:15.230 --> 00:38:17.230
  • not be able to ignore this love
  • 00:38:19.160 --> 00:38:22.160
  • that we live, that's what
  • 00:38:22.250 --> 00:38:25.250
  • I signed up for.
  • 00:38:25.250 --> 00:38:27.110
  • I want to be a part of that,
  • 00:38:27.110 --> 00:38:28.160
  • letting the world know
  • 00:38:28.160 --> 00:38:29.240
  • the kind of love that has
  • 00:38:29.240 --> 00:38:31.000
  • changed my life.
  • 00:38:31.000 --> 00:38:32.030
  • Can I read this into the record?
  • 00:38:32.030 --> 00:38:33.130
  • And I'm done.
  • 00:38:33.130 --> 00:38:34.110
  • Romans 12, one more time
  • 00:38:34.110 --> 00:38:35.150
  • in light of that.
  • 00:38:35.150 --> 00:38:36.050
  • And Romans 12 is a significant
  • 00:38:36.050 --> 00:38:37.160
  • part of Romans because
  • 00:38:37.160 --> 00:38:38.200
  • it's a turn in the letter where
  • 00:38:38.200 --> 00:38:40.190
  • scholars and writers all believe
  • 00:38:40.190 --> 00:38:41.290
  • that Romans 12 is basically
  • 00:38:41.290 --> 00:38:43.230
  • here's how you live out
  • 00:38:43.230 --> 00:38:45.050
  • our theology.
  • 00:38:45.050 --> 00:38:46.040
  • Romans 12 is the living out
  • 00:38:46.040 --> 00:38:47.180
  • of what the fundamental ideals
  • 00:38:47.180 --> 00:38:49.000
  • of what we believe
  • 00:38:49.000 --> 00:38:49.200
  • This is how you do it.
  • 00:38:51.220 --> 00:38:52.110
  • And this is it,
  • 00:38:52.110 --> 00:38:52.270
  • Imagine if we lived like this.
  • 00:38:52.270 --> 00:38:54.080
  • Come on, ladies,
  • 00:38:54.080 --> 00:38:54.280
  • let's dream together.
  • 00:38:54.280 --> 00:38:55.250
  • "Bless your enemies;
  • 00:38:55.250 --> 00:38:57.170
  • no cursing under your breath.
  • 00:38:57.170 --> 00:38:59.200
  • Laugh with your happy friends
  • 00:38:59.200 --> 00:39:00.290
  • when they're happy;
  • 00:39:00.290 --> 00:39:02.080
  • share tears when they're down.
  • 00:39:02.080 --> 00:39:04.220
  • Get along with each other."
  • 00:39:04.220 --> 00:39:06.140
  • Come on.
  • 00:39:06.140 --> 00:39:07.040
  • "Don't be stuck-up.
  • 00:39:07.040 --> 00:39:07.240
  • Let's make friends with
  • 00:39:07.240 --> 00:39:08.150
  • nobodies; not any one of us will
  • 00:39:08.150 --> 00:39:10.290
  • become the great somebody."
  • 00:39:10.290 --> 00:39:13.070
  • Come on.
  • 00:39:13.070 --> 00:39:13.270
  • "Don't hit back."
  • 00:39:13.270 --> 00:39:15.140
  • Come on, ladies,
  • 00:39:15.140 --> 00:39:16.040
  • let's go corner to corner.
  • 00:39:16.040 --> 00:39:17.290
  • Let's go continent to continent.
  • 00:39:17.290 --> 00:39:19.280
  • Let's discover the beauty
  • 00:39:19.280 --> 00:39:21.070
  • in everyone,
  • 00:39:21.070 --> 00:39:23.260
  • in all kinds of people.
  • 00:39:23.260 --> 00:39:26.050
  • And if you got it in you,
  • 00:39:26.050 --> 00:39:27.080
  • and I know you do as
  • 00:39:27.080 --> 00:39:28.130
  • the Spirit of Jesus Christ
  • 00:39:28.130 --> 00:39:29.220
  • lives inside of you,
  • 00:39:29.220 --> 00:39:30.260
  • get along with everybody.
  • 00:39:30.260 --> 00:39:32.070
  • Whoo!
  • 00:39:32.070 --> 00:39:34.080
  • Don't insist on getting even.
  • 00:39:34.080 --> 00:39:35.210
  • Don't worry about all that.
  • 00:39:35.210 --> 00:39:37.000
  • "I'll do the judging," says God.
  • 00:39:37.000 --> 00:39:38.160
  • "I'll take care of that.
  • 00:39:38.160 --> 00:39:39.170
  • Don't worry about any of that."
  • 00:39:39.170 --> 00:39:41.030
  • Our Scripture tells us
  • 00:39:41.030 --> 00:39:42.150
  • if you see your enemy hungry,
  • 00:39:42.150 --> 00:39:44.190
  • go buy that person lunch.
  • 00:39:44.190 --> 00:39:46.030
  • If they blog about you,
  • 00:39:46.030 --> 00:39:47.250
  • send them a gift.
  • 00:39:47.250 --> 00:39:48.270
  • If they run stories in error,
  • 00:39:48.270 --> 00:39:51.110
  • send them a car.
  • 00:39:52.260 --> 00:39:55.260
  • I don't know why you'd send them
  • 00:39:55.260 --> 00:39:56.240
  • a car, but it just came to me.
  • 00:39:57.280 --> 00:40:00.280
  • "If your enemy's thirsty,
  • 00:40:00.280 --> 00:40:02.030
  • get him a drink.
  • 00:40:02.030 --> 00:40:03.020
  • Your generosity will surprise
  • 00:40:03.020 --> 00:40:03.270
  • him with goodness.
  • 00:40:03.270 --> 00:40:05.220
  • Don't let evil
  • 00:40:05.220 --> 00:40:06.220
  • get the best of you."
  • 00:40:06.220 --> 00:40:07.200
  • Let's not do it,
  • 00:40:07.200 --> 00:40:08.080
  • let's not do it.
  • 00:40:08.080 --> 00:40:08.230
  • No, I don't want this evil age
  • 00:40:08.230 --> 00:40:11.200
  • to get on me.
  • 00:40:11.200 --> 00:40:12.100
  • No, we're an army of good,
  • 00:40:13.020 --> 00:40:16.020
  • not of evil,
  • 00:40:16.020 --> 00:40:17.030
  • not of manipulation,
  • 00:40:17.030 --> 00:40:18.240
  • not of selfishness,
  • 00:40:18.240 --> 00:40:20.280
  • not of selfish ambition.
  • 00:40:20.280 --> 00:40:22.080
  • That's not the army.
  • 00:40:22.080 --> 00:40:23.030
  • We're the army of goodness
  • 00:40:23.030 --> 00:40:24.190
  • with no strings attached.
  • 00:40:24.190 --> 00:40:26.070
  • We're the army of love.
  • 00:40:26.070 --> 00:40:27.240
  • If you hate us,
  • 00:40:27.240 --> 00:40:28.180
  • we'll love you more.
  • 00:40:28.180 --> 00:40:29.210
  • We're weird like that.
  • 00:40:29.270 --> 00:40:32.270
  • Let's get the best of these evil
  • 00:40:32.270 --> 00:40:35.000
  • days right in the center
  • 00:40:35.000 --> 00:40:37.100
  • of evil.
  • 00:40:37.100 --> 00:40:38.000
  • Let's do good.
  • 00:40:38.000 --> 00:40:39.270
  • Let's love each other,
  • 00:40:39.270 --> 00:40:41.000
  • love people from other groups,
  • 00:40:41.000 --> 00:40:41.200
  • oppose us and misunderstand us
  • 00:40:43.230 --> 00:40:45.050
  • and are our enemies.
  • 00:40:45.050 --> 00:40:46.060
  • And I believe by doing this, the
  • 00:40:46.060 --> 00:40:47.170
  • world will see that what is in
  • 00:40:47.170 --> 00:40:49.200
  • us and upon us is unlike
  • 00:40:49.200 --> 00:40:51.160
  • anything in the known world.
  • 00:40:51.160 --> 00:40:53.020
  • It's a great God who loves us
  • 00:40:53.020 --> 00:40:55.080
  • with an everlasting love.
  • 00:40:55.080 --> 00:40:56.150
  • - Lisa Bevere: I'm gonna be
  • 00:41:01.080 --> 00:41:01.250
  • talking to you tonight about
  • 00:41:01.250 --> 00:41:04.030
  • being all in because when we see
  • 00:41:04.030 --> 00:41:06.200
  • the urgency and the wonder
  • 00:41:06.200 --> 00:41:09.070
  • of our now,
  • 00:41:09.070 --> 00:41:11.120
  • we can't be anything else.
  • 00:41:11.120 --> 00:41:13.200
  • We need to go public now.
  • 00:41:14.150 --> 00:41:17.150
  • We cannot be silent.
  • 00:41:17.150 --> 00:41:20.110
  • We must speak up.
  • 00:41:20.110 --> 00:41:22.220
  • We must declare the truth.
  • 00:41:22.220 --> 00:41:25.060
  • - Lisa Bevere: I want you to
  • 00:41:37.240 --> 00:41:38.160
  • know that if I hadn't been
  • 00:41:38.160 --> 00:41:41.000
  • a minister, I would have loved
  • 00:41:41.000 --> 00:41:43.200
  • to have been an assassin.
  • 00:41:43.200 --> 00:41:46.000
  • I feel like I can share that
  • 00:41:46.030 --> 00:41:49.030
  • with you guys.
  • 00:41:49.030 --> 00:41:50.060
  • I'm half Sicilian.
  • 00:41:50.060 --> 00:41:51.290
  • Only having vision
  • 00:41:51.290 --> 00:41:52.280
  • in my right eye
  • 00:41:52.280 --> 00:41:54.090
  • makes me amazing with a gun.
  • 00:41:54.120 --> 00:41:57.120
  • So, I'm just kind of putting
  • 00:41:57.120 --> 00:41:58.250
  • it out there if I start--stop
  • 00:41:58.250 --> 00:42:01.210
  • traveling for ministry,
  • 00:42:01.210 --> 00:42:02.210
  • And I have friends that feed
  • 00:42:04.240 --> 00:42:06.270
  • this wrong thing in my life
  • 00:42:06.270 --> 00:42:09.020
  • by sending me like little inside
  • 00:42:09.020 --> 00:42:11.120
  • information of things
  • 00:42:11.120 --> 00:42:13.020
  • that happen in D.C.,
  • 00:42:13.020 --> 00:42:14.140
  • and here's one of the insides
  • 00:42:14.140 --> 00:42:16.050
  • I got.
  • 00:42:16.050 --> 00:42:17.050
  • It says, "I have seen videos of
  • 00:42:17.050 --> 00:42:19.050
  • Kurdish female soldiers being
  • 00:42:19.050 --> 00:42:21.180
  • interviewed who say ISIS
  • 00:42:21.180 --> 00:42:23.280
  • soldiers run away from them in
  • 00:42:23.280 --> 00:42:26.280
  • battle because to be killed by
  • 00:42:26.280 --> 00:42:29.170
  • a woman will deprive them
  • 00:42:29.170 --> 00:42:31.260
  • of a pleasant afterlife.
  • 00:42:31.260 --> 00:42:34.040
  • Seems that if they know
  • 00:42:34.040 --> 00:42:35.220
  • they are fighting women,
  • 00:42:35.220 --> 00:42:37.110
  • some of them are suddenly
  • 00:42:37.110 --> 00:42:39.220
  • unwilling to take the risk."
  • 00:42:40.210 --> 00:42:43.210
  • I love that.
  • 00:42:43.210 --> 00:42:44.120
  • I want them to know they are
  • 00:42:44.160 --> 00:42:47.160
  • fighting women.
  • 00:42:47.160 --> 00:42:48.070
  • And, you know, the truth is,
  • 00:42:48.070 --> 00:42:49.240
  • I'm not talking about guns.
  • 00:42:49.240 --> 00:42:51.100
  • I'm talking about the women are
  • 00:42:51.100 --> 00:42:53.100
  • coming on the page,
  • 00:42:53.100 --> 00:42:55.130
  • that is why we are praying
  • 00:42:55.130 --> 00:42:57.090
  • every single day at noon.
  • 00:42:57.090 --> 00:42:59.070
  • We understand that the weapons
  • 00:42:59.070 --> 00:43:00.290
  • of our warfare are not carnal
  • 00:43:00.290 --> 00:43:03.010
  • but they are mighty in God to
  • 00:43:03.010 --> 00:43:04.290
  • the pulling down of strongholds.
  • 00:43:05.000 --> 00:43:08.000
  • And you and I walk the earth in
  • 00:43:08.000 --> 00:43:10.150
  • great and terrible days,
  • 00:43:11.070 --> 00:43:14.070
  • and these days require boldness
  • 00:43:14.260 --> 00:43:17.260
  • and courage for each
  • 00:43:17.260 --> 00:43:20.070
  • and every one of us to be
  • 00:43:20.070 --> 00:43:22.170
  • all that God created us to be.
  • 00:43:22.210 --> 00:43:25.210
  • And this boldness and this
  • 00:43:25.210 --> 00:43:27.230
  • courage does not happen outside
  • 00:43:28.080 --> 00:43:31.080
  • of together.
  • 00:43:31.080 --> 00:43:32.280
  • I'm gonna be talking to you
  • 00:43:32.280 --> 00:43:34.160
  • tonight about being all in.
  • 00:43:35.120 --> 00:43:38.120
  • You know, when I got
  • 00:43:38.120 --> 00:43:39.210
  • the invitation to be found
  • 00:43:39.210 --> 00:43:41.270
  • and I saw a crown on it,
  • 00:43:41.270 --> 00:43:43.270
  • I have to be honest with you,
  • 00:43:43.270 --> 00:43:45.020
  • I kind of had a meltdown
  • 00:43:45.020 --> 00:43:47.020
  • because last year in London
  • 00:43:47.110 --> 00:43:50.110
  • when I was there and it was
  • 00:43:50.110 --> 00:43:51.150
  • just so beautiful, I heard
  • 00:43:51.150 --> 00:43:53.190
  • the Holy Spirit say to me,
  • 00:43:53.190 --> 00:43:56.050
  • "You've written on swords.
  • 00:43:56.050 --> 00:43:58.130
  • You've written on lionesses.
  • 00:43:58.130 --> 00:44:00.180
  • You've written on kisses
  • 00:44:00.180 --> 00:44:01.250
  • that make girls cry,
  • 00:44:01.250 --> 00:44:03.240
  • but now I want you to write
  • 00:44:03.240 --> 00:44:05.160
  • on the crown of life."
  • 00:44:05.200 --> 00:44:08.200
  • And I actually didn't even know
  • 00:44:08.200 --> 00:44:10.200
  • what that was, but there are
  • 00:44:10.200 --> 00:44:12.260
  • five crowns and the crown of
  • 00:44:12.260 --> 00:44:14.190
  • life is the one that I'm going
  • 00:44:14.190 --> 00:44:16.220
  • to kind of highlight tonight.
  • 00:44:16.220 --> 00:44:18.260
  • It is the crown that says,
  • 00:44:18.260 --> 00:44:20.080
  • "We are all in."
  • 00:44:20.080 --> 00:44:23.040
  • And I think we need to be
  • 00:44:23.040 --> 00:44:24.160
  • a generation that is all in,
  • 00:44:25.040 --> 00:44:28.040
  • because when we see the urgency
  • 00:44:28.040 --> 00:44:30.090
  • and the wonder of our now,
  • 00:44:30.150 --> 00:44:33.150
  • Matthew 10:26 through 28 says,
  • 00:44:36.210 --> 00:44:39.210
  • "Don't be intimidated.
  • 00:44:40.130 --> 00:44:43.130
  • Eventually everything is going
  • 00:44:43.130 --> 00:44:46.030
  • to be out in the open,
  • 00:44:46.030 --> 00:44:48.200
  • and everyone will know
  • 00:44:48.200 --> 00:44:50.100
  • how things really are.
  • 00:44:50.100 --> 00:44:52.260
  • So don't hesitate
  • 00:44:52.260 --> 00:44:54.240
  • to go public now.
  • 00:44:55.120 --> 00:44:58.120
  • Don't be bluffed into silence
  • 00:44:58.120 --> 00:45:00.260
  • by the threats of bullies.
  • 00:45:01.000 --> 00:45:04.000
  • There is nothing they can do
  • 00:45:04.000 --> 00:45:06.100
  • to your soul, your core being.
  • 00:45:07.010 --> 00:45:10.010
  • Save your fear for God, who
  • 00:45:10.010 --> 00:45:12.040
  • holds your entire life, body,
  • 00:45:13.080 --> 00:45:16.080
  • and soul in his hands."
  • 00:45:17.140 --> 00:45:20.140
  • Intimidation comes
  • 00:45:20.140 --> 00:45:21.220
  • Bullies want to minimize
  • 00:45:24.110 --> 00:45:26.270
  • and contain your capacity.
  • 00:45:27.090 --> 00:45:30.090
  • I know that because I hear it
  • 00:45:30.090 --> 00:45:33.000
  • all the time.
  • 00:45:33.000 --> 00:45:34.020
  • It used to be Instagram
  • 00:45:34.020 --> 00:45:35.010
  • was like, oh, how fun?
  • 00:45:35.010 --> 00:45:36.180
  • Now Instagram can even be
  • 00:45:36.180 --> 00:45:38.280
  • a place where people try
  • 00:45:38.280 --> 00:45:40.020
  • to intimidate you into silence.
  • 00:45:40.240 --> 00:45:43.240
  • If you even speak the truth
  • 00:45:44.150 --> 00:45:47.150
  • or post a Scripture, people will
  • 00:45:47.240 --> 00:45:50.240
  • say things like, "Stop judging."
  • 00:45:51.090 --> 00:45:54.090
  • I'm sorry, speaking truth
  • 00:45:54.090 --> 00:45:57.080
  • and posting Scriptures
  • 00:45:57.080 --> 00:45:59.290
  • is not judging,
  • 00:45:59.290 --> 00:46:02.140
  • it is actually speaking truth
  • 00:46:02.260 --> 00:46:05.260
  • and speaking truth sets
  • 00:46:05.260 --> 00:46:08.220
  • captives free.
  • 00:46:08.220 --> 00:46:10.210
  • Being silent does not
  • 00:46:11.050 --> 00:46:14.050
  • set captives free.
  • 00:46:14.050 --> 00:46:15.230
  • Being silent keeps
  • 00:46:15.230 --> 00:46:18.060
  • people captive.
  • 00:46:18.060 --> 00:46:19.270
  • Everybody else has permission
  • 00:46:19.270 --> 00:46:22.160
  • to talk and we're supposed
  • 00:46:22.160 --> 00:46:23.230
  • to be quiet.
  • 00:46:23.230 --> 00:46:26.170
  • We can't be.
  • 00:46:26.170 --> 00:46:28.070
  • We need to go public now.
  • 00:46:29.070 --> 00:46:32.070
  • We cannot be silent.
  • 00:46:32.070 --> 00:46:35.010
  • We must speak up.
  • 00:46:35.010 --> 00:46:37.120
  • We must declare the truth.
  • 00:46:37.120 --> 00:46:39.250
  • We must live the truth.
  • 00:46:40.120 --> 00:46:43.120
  • See, you have a sentence.
  • 00:46:44.210 --> 00:46:47.210
  • You have a paragraph.
  • 00:46:50.120 --> 00:46:51.030
  • You have a song.
  • 00:46:51.030 --> 00:46:53.030
  • You have a scene in this drama
  • 00:46:53.030 --> 00:46:55.090
  • that is this magnificent story
  • 00:46:55.090 --> 00:46:57.240
  • that we're all being found in,
  • 00:46:58.070 --> 00:47:01.090
  • this beautiful, amazing chapter
  • 00:47:02.250 --> 00:47:05.250
  • I don't know if you've read in
  • 00:47:07.280 --> 00:47:09.240
  • the Book of Acts, but it says,
  • 00:47:09.240 --> 00:47:11.140
  • "I wrote you," Paul's talking,
  • 00:47:11.140 --> 00:47:13.080
  • "I wrote you, O King Theophilus,
  • 00:47:13.080 --> 00:47:16.070
  • of what Jesus Christ began
  • 00:47:17.020 --> 00:47:20.020
  • to do and to teach."
  • 00:47:20.020 --> 00:47:22.260
  • All of us collectively are in on
  • 00:47:23.210 --> 00:47:26.210
  • the continuation of this story.
  • 00:47:27.040 --> 00:47:30.040
  • You know, I remember when I was
  • 00:47:30.050 --> 00:47:33.050
  • writing the book, "Nurture."
  • 00:47:33.050 --> 00:47:34.050
  • I was looking, I was looking for
  • 00:47:34.060 --> 00:47:37.060
  • what we're starting to see now.
  • 00:47:37.060 --> 00:47:39.020
  • I was looking for women who were
  • 00:47:39.020 --> 00:47:41.170
  • peers that could do life well
  • 00:47:41.270 --> 00:47:44.270
  • together, and I couldn't find
  • 00:47:46.040 --> 00:47:49.040
  • but one example of them.
  • 00:47:49.040 --> 00:47:52.020
  • Now, we had women that were
  • 00:47:52.020 --> 00:47:53.210
  • older and younger doing life
  • 00:47:53.210 --> 00:47:55.060
  • well together.
  • 00:47:55.060 --> 00:47:55.260
  • We had the Ruth and Naomi.
  • 00:47:55.260 --> 00:47:57.260
  • We have the Mary and Elizabeth
  • 00:47:57.260 --> 00:48:00.110
  • but Rachel and Leah,
  • 00:48:00.110 --> 00:48:01.150
  • no, that's yucky.
  • 00:48:01.150 --> 00:48:03.010
  • We are not gonna be married
  • 00:48:03.010 --> 00:48:04.080
  • to the same man.
  • 00:48:04.080 --> 00:48:05.060
  • We're not gonna be sister wives.
  • 00:48:05.060 --> 00:48:06.160
  • That's not--I mean only with
  • 00:48:06.160 --> 00:48:08.000
  • Jesus but nobody else.
  • 00:48:08.000 --> 00:48:10.150
  • And I was like, "God, I need
  • 00:48:10.150 --> 00:48:12.120
  • one example of this."
  • 00:48:13.020 --> 00:48:16.020
  • And the only one I found
  • 00:48:16.020 --> 00:48:18.210
  • was the Hebrew midwives.
  • 00:48:18.210 --> 00:48:21.180
  • They're unnamed but they were
  • 00:48:21.180 --> 00:48:23.250
  • peers, they were skillful, and
  • 00:48:24.000 --> 00:48:27.000
  • they said, "We are not going to
  • 00:48:27.000 --> 00:48:29.050
  • stand by and be afraid
  • 00:48:29.050 --> 00:48:31.130
  • of Pharaoh's decree.
  • 00:48:31.130 --> 00:48:33.080
  • We are going to fear God more
  • 00:48:33.080 --> 00:48:35.180
  • than we fear Pharaoh,
  • 00:48:35.180 --> 00:48:37.200
  • and we are going to make sure
  • 00:48:37.200 --> 00:48:40.020
  • that a generation
  • 00:48:40.020 --> 00:48:41.090
  • is delivered into its legacy
  • 00:48:41.090 --> 00:48:44.020
  • and strength."
  • 00:48:44.020 --> 00:48:45.190
  • And I believe that you and I
  • 00:48:45.190 --> 00:48:47.010
  • on many fronts are midwives.
  • 00:48:47.160 --> 00:48:50.160
  • We are here to make sure
  • 00:48:50.160 --> 00:48:52.190
  • a generation is brought
  • 00:48:52.190 --> 00:48:54.220
  • forth with strength,
  • 00:48:54.220 --> 00:48:56.230
  • and we are not going
  • 00:48:56.230 --> 00:48:58.010
  • to tremble at the words
  • 00:48:58.010 --> 00:49:01.000
  • and the bullies of this world.
  • 00:49:01.000 --> 00:49:03.150
  • We are going to answer
  • 00:49:03.150 --> 00:49:05.030
  • to the Word of God
  • 00:49:05.030 --> 00:49:06.160
  • Because the truth is, men plan
  • 00:49:12.000 --> 00:49:15.000
  • wars but women plan weddings and
  • 00:49:16.220 --> 00:49:19.220
  • both a war and a wedding are on
  • 00:49:20.000 --> 00:49:23.000
  • the horizon for the church
  • 00:49:23.000 --> 00:49:24.270
  • of Jesus Christ
  • 00:49:24.270 --> 00:49:26.240
  • and that is a pretty big span,
  • 00:49:26.240 --> 00:49:29.080
  • war and wedding.
  • 00:49:29.080 --> 00:49:32.060
  • And you and I have some room and
  • 00:49:32.060 --> 00:49:35.060
  • some margin to be part of that,
  • 00:49:35.060 --> 00:49:37.280
  • and it is time that we begin
  • 00:49:37.280 --> 00:49:40.240
  • to write the chapter
  • 00:49:40.240 --> 00:49:42.240
  • of the daughters now.
  • 00:49:43.270 --> 00:49:46.270
  • We can't wait another moment
  • 00:49:46.270 --> 00:49:48.230
  • because when I look around
  • 00:49:48.230 --> 00:49:49.280
  • and I see what is going on
  • 00:49:49.280 --> 00:49:52.100
  • in the last 5 years, I say,
  • 00:49:52.100 --> 00:49:54.000
  • - Lisa: The more I press into
  • 00:49:59.190 --> 00:50:00.250
  • God, the more I find out
  • 00:50:00.250 --> 00:50:02.210
  • who I am.
  • 00:50:02.210 --> 00:50:04.030
  • That's where we find our
  • 00:50:04.030 --> 00:50:06.180
  • identity is in him,
  • 00:50:07.010 --> 00:50:10.010
  • not in our world,
  • 00:50:10.010 --> 00:50:11.210
  • not in how we feel about
  • 00:50:11.210 --> 00:50:13.090
  • ourselves, not how we look at
  • 00:50:13.090 --> 00:50:15.090
  • any given time, because then
  • 00:50:15.090 --> 00:50:17.180
  • it's going to be unstable.
  • 00:50:17.180 --> 00:50:19.210
  • It's going to be variable.
  • 00:50:19.210 --> 00:50:20.280
  • We cannot be unstable people.
  • 00:50:20.290 --> 00:50:23.290
  • - Lisa: You look around
  • 00:50:36.080 --> 00:50:36.270
  • and you're like, "Has the world
  • 00:50:36.270 --> 00:50:38.080
  • gone crazy?
  • 00:50:38.080 --> 00:50:38.250
  • And God's like, "Jesus,
  • 00:50:40.270 --> 00:50:41.250
  • you know, we're gonna
  • 00:50:41.250 --> 00:50:42.240
  • write the down the answer
  • 00:50:42.240 --> 00:50:43.190
  • in the Scriptures so when
  • 00:50:43.190 --> 00:50:44.250
  • Lisa asks that question,
  • 00:50:44.250 --> 00:50:46.030
  • she's gonna already have
  • 00:50:46.030 --> 00:50:47.060
  • that answer."
  • 00:50:47.060 --> 00:50:47.260
  • And that answer is found in
  • 00:50:47.260 --> 00:50:49.270
  • Romans chapter 1, verse 21
  • 00:50:50.060 --> 00:50:53.060
  • and God begins to unpack it.
  • 00:50:53.060 --> 00:50:54.220
  • He says, "What happened was
  • 00:50:54.220 --> 00:50:57.180
  • this: People knew God perfectly
  • 00:50:59.260 --> 00:51:02.280
  • well, but when they didn't treat
  • 00:51:02.280 --> 00:51:05.260
  • him like God, refusing to
  • 00:51:06.080 --> 00:51:09.080
  • worship him, they trivialized
  • 00:51:09.080 --> 00:51:11.250
  • themselves into silliness and
  • 00:51:12.170 --> 00:51:15.170
  • confusion so that there was
  • 00:51:15.170 --> 00:51:17.220
  • neither sense nor direction left
  • 00:51:18.230 --> 00:51:21.230
  • in their lives.
  • 00:51:21.230 --> 00:51:23.140
  • They pretended to know it all,
  • 00:51:23.140 --> 00:51:25.290
  • but were illiterate
  • 00:51:25.290 --> 00:51:27.180
  • I watched an interview
  • 00:51:30.210 --> 00:51:32.290
  • and a report in America where
  • 00:51:33.160 --> 00:51:36.160
  • this 52-year-old father of 7
  • 00:51:38.090 --> 00:51:41.090
  • decided to self-identify
  • 00:51:42.240 --> 00:51:45.240
  • as a 6-year-old girl.
  • 00:51:46.140 --> 00:51:49.140
  • I was like, is this like really?
  • 00:51:49.230 --> 00:51:52.230
  • And he was dressed
  • 00:51:52.230 --> 00:51:54.040
  • and a bow on.
  • 00:51:57.280 --> 00:51:59.240
  • Self-identify, when have we seen
  • 00:52:00.050 --> 00:52:03.050
  • that before?
  • 00:52:03.050 --> 00:52:04.210
  • Self-identify.
  • 00:52:04.210 --> 00:52:06.210
  • There's two examples of that in
  • 00:52:06.210 --> 00:52:09.160
  • the Old Testament,
  • 00:52:09.160 --> 00:52:11.090
  • the first was Lucifer.
  • 00:52:11.090 --> 00:52:14.010
  • He admired God,
  • 00:52:14.010 --> 00:52:15.280
  • stopped worshiping,
  • 00:52:15.280 --> 00:52:17.180
  • began to admire him and said,
  • 00:52:17.180 --> 00:52:19.210
  • "You know what?
  • 00:52:19.210 --> 00:52:20.290
  • I will ascend.
  • 00:52:20.290 --> 00:52:22.280
  • I will be like the Most High.
  • 00:52:22.280 --> 00:52:24.130
  • I'm not gonna take the identity
  • 00:52:24.130 --> 00:52:25.190
  • God has given me.
  • 00:52:25.190 --> 00:52:26.160
  • And you know what?
  • 00:52:30.040 --> 00:52:30.240
  • His decision to make himself
  • 00:52:33.050 --> 00:52:36.050
  • was his unmaking.
  • 00:52:36.150 --> 00:52:39.150
  • We also see it with Adam and Eve
  • 00:52:39.150 --> 00:52:42.030
  • when they decided that they were
  • 00:52:42.030 --> 00:52:43.130
  • going to be like God apart
  • 00:52:43.130 --> 00:52:46.130
  • from God.
  • 00:52:46.130 --> 00:52:48.160
  • Hey, the more I press into God,
  • 00:52:49.250 --> 00:52:52.250
  • the more I find out who I am.
  • 00:52:53.100 --> 00:52:56.100
  • That's where we find our
  • 00:52:56.100 --> 00:52:58.250
  • identity is in him, not in our
  • 00:53:00.060 --> 00:53:03.060
  • world, not in how we feel about
  • 00:53:03.060 --> 00:53:05.170
  • ourselves, not how we look
  • 00:53:05.170 --> 00:53:07.110
  • at any given time.
  • 00:53:07.110 --> 00:53:10.040
  • That is not where we can
  • 00:53:10.040 --> 00:53:12.210
  • identify ourselves because then
  • 00:53:12.210 --> 00:53:14.080
  • it's going to be unstable.
  • 00:53:14.080 --> 00:53:16.060
  • It's going to be variable.
  • 00:53:16.060 --> 00:53:18.060
  • We cannot be unstable people.
  • 00:53:18.060 --> 00:53:20.180
  • In America, and I actually would
  • 00:53:26.120 --> 00:53:28.240
  • say this would include all
  • 00:53:28.240 --> 00:53:29.290
  • of the western world.
  • 00:53:29.290 --> 00:53:32.030
  • We absorb ceaseless amounts
  • 00:53:33.020 --> 00:53:36.020
  • of information
  • 00:53:36.020 --> 00:53:37.210
  • and yet lack any tangible,
  • 00:53:38.200 --> 00:53:41.200
  • measurable, transformation.
  • 00:53:42.000 --> 00:53:45.000
  • Families are broken,
  • 00:53:45.000 --> 00:53:47.250
  • marriages fractured.
  • 00:53:47.250 --> 00:53:50.200
  • Our sense of identity
  • 00:53:50.200 --> 00:53:52.270
  • and justice, corrupted.
  • 00:53:52.270 --> 00:53:55.260
  • Teachers, those who would
  • 00:53:55.260 --> 00:53:57.180
  • educate us are hindered from
  • 00:53:57.180 --> 00:54:00.060
  • being able to educate because
  • 00:54:00.060 --> 00:54:02.070
  • there's no clarity to what
  • 00:54:02.070 --> 00:54:04.110
  • actually is just foundational.
  • 00:54:04.110 --> 00:54:07.070
  • Evil is called good,
  • 00:54:07.070 --> 00:54:09.070
  • good is called evil.
  • 00:54:09.070 --> 00:54:10.290
  • Lies are broadcast as truth.
  • 00:54:10.290 --> 00:54:13.180
  • Truth is broadcast as lies.
  • 00:54:13.180 --> 00:54:15.100
  • Leaders fall, children are
  • 00:54:15.100 --> 00:54:16.190
  • afraid, women are violated.
  • 00:54:16.190 --> 00:54:19.020
  • Ministers lose faith and often
  • 00:54:19.260 --> 00:54:22.260
  • compromise their integrity.
  • 00:54:23.110 --> 00:54:26.110
  • And I'm not being a hater but
  • 00:54:26.110 --> 00:54:29.010
  • actors, sports figures, and
  • 00:54:30.220 --> 00:54:33.220
  • role models, as our heroes,
  • 00:54:42.010 --> 00:54:45.010
  • people who play and pretend?
  • 00:54:47.160 --> 00:54:50.160
  • At best, our earth is sick,
  • 00:54:51.120 --> 00:54:54.120
  • enough evidence that perhaps
  • 00:55:03.000 --> 00:55:06.000
  • our current decisions
  • 00:55:06.000 --> 00:55:07.090
  • are slightly off kilter,
  • 00:55:07.090 --> 00:55:09.060
  • we continue to research
  • 00:55:09.060 --> 00:55:11.160
  • and gather more data.
  • 00:55:11.160 --> 00:55:14.010
  • But here's the truth,
  • 00:55:14.010 --> 00:55:16.080
  • we are searching for answers
  • 00:55:16.080 --> 00:55:18.260
  • we have already been given.
  • 00:55:21.030 --> 00:55:24.030
  • We haven't lost our way.
  • 00:55:24.030 --> 00:55:26.040
  • We have chosen foolishness.
  • 00:55:26.080 --> 00:55:29.080
  • Why do I say that?
  • 00:55:29.080 --> 00:55:30.000
  • Because the fool says
  • 00:55:30.000 --> 00:55:30.280
  • in his heart, "There is no God.
  • 00:55:30.280 --> 00:55:33.050
  • There is no God.
  • 00:55:33.050 --> 00:55:33.250
  • I am my own God."
  • 00:55:33.250 --> 00:55:34.180
  • That's what the fool says.
  • 00:55:34.180 --> 00:55:37.020
  • When a generation deliberately
  • 00:55:37.040 --> 00:55:40.040
  • leaves the paths of light
  • 00:55:40.040 --> 00:55:42.270
  • to explore the recesses
  • 00:55:42.270 --> 00:55:44.290
  • of darkness,
  • 00:55:44.290 --> 00:55:46.220
  • they are often too smart
  • 00:55:46.220 --> 00:55:48.050
  • Romans 1:26 goes on to say,
  • 00:55:52.220 --> 00:55:54.180
  • "Worse followed.
  • 00:55:54.180 --> 00:55:56.020
  • Refusing to know God, they soon
  • 00:55:56.220 --> 00:55:59.220
  • didn't know how to be
  • 00:55:59.220 --> 00:56:02.110
  • human either.
  • 00:56:02.110 --> 00:56:04.080
  • Women didn't know how to
  • 00:56:04.080 --> 00:56:06.030
  • be women, and men didn't know
  • 00:56:06.180 --> 00:56:09.180
  • how to be men."
  • 00:56:10.080 --> 00:56:13.080
  • I find out who I am as a woman
  • 00:56:13.160 --> 00:56:16.160
  • In all of the complexities,
  • 00:56:18.240 --> 00:56:20.290
  • and brokenness,
  • 00:56:20.290 --> 00:56:22.080
  • and challenges of menstruation,
  • 00:56:22.180 --> 00:56:25.180
  • and premenstrual,
  • 00:56:25.180 --> 00:56:26.150
  • and post menopause, whatever,
  • 00:56:26.150 --> 00:56:28.080
  • all of that, I still find myself
  • 00:56:32.010 --> 00:56:35.010
  • when I search for God.
  • 00:56:35.010 --> 00:56:36.180
  • And, you know, here's the truth,
  • 00:56:36.180 --> 00:56:38.210
  • God doesn't make mistakes
  • 00:56:38.210 --> 00:56:41.200
  • when he makes us.
  • 00:56:41.200 --> 00:56:43.190
  • God doesn't make mistakes and
  • 00:56:44.030 --> 00:56:47.030
  • anything that I could do on the
  • 00:56:47.030 --> 00:56:48.210
  • outside could never fix this
  • 00:56:48.230 --> 00:56:51.230
  • longing I have on the inside
  • 00:56:52.100 --> 00:56:55.100
  • because my heart is set
  • 00:56:55.100 --> 00:56:58.090
  • for eternity.
  • 00:56:58.090 --> 00:57:00.050
  • It's not about this being my
  • 00:57:00.050 --> 00:57:02.010
  • home, it's about putting
  • 00:57:02.010 --> 00:57:04.020
  • my heart in heaven where
  • 00:57:04.020 --> 00:57:06.000
  • it's true home is.
  • 00:57:06.000 --> 00:57:09.000
  • We gather at this
  • 00:57:09.000 --> 00:57:11.050
  • Colour Your World Conference
  • 00:57:11.050 --> 00:57:13.200
  • because our world is
  • 00:57:13.200 --> 00:57:15.200
  • very blurred and gray right now,
  • 00:57:16.100 --> 00:57:19.100
  • and it doesn't need
  • 00:57:19.100 --> 00:57:20.140
  • the legalism of black and white.
  • 00:57:20.140 --> 00:57:22.160
  • It needs the vibrancies

  • into this world, the hues that
  • 00:57:26.170 --> 00:57:29.090
  • we saw played out in the open
  • 00:57:29.090 --> 00:57:31.180
  • that just became more
  • 00:57:31.180 --> 00:57:32.180
  • and more vibrant.
  • 00:57:32.180 --> 00:57:33.110
  • And then when you saw they chose
  • 00:57:33.110 --> 00:57:34.240
  • self, everything began to blur.
  • 00:57:37.090 --> 00:57:40.090
  • The earth is in desperate need
  • 00:57:40.100 --> 00:57:43.100

  • 00:57:46.240 --> 00:57:49.030
  • time is just about up.
  • 00:57:49.030 --> 00:57:50.140
  • You heard that the Antichrist
  • 00:57:50.140 --> 00:57:52.020
  • is coming.
  • 00:57:52.020 --> 00:57:53.090
  • Well, they're all over
  • 00:57:53.090 --> 00:57:55.020
  • the place,
  • 00:57:55.020 --> 00:57:56.100
  • antichrists everywhere you look.

  • we're close to the end."
  • 00:58:01.240 --> 00:58:03.230
  • One of the signatures of the
  • 00:58:03.230 --> 00:58:05.260
  • Antichrist's spirit is a hatred
  • 00:58:05.260 --> 00:58:08.190

  • denying gender,
  • 00:58:22.220 --> 00:58:24.000
  • it's really not a friendship

  • to women.
  • 00:58:26.120 --> 00:58:28.120
  • We need to be able to value that
  • 00:58:28.120 --> 00:58:30.270
  • but this dark time is serving to
  • 00:58:32.230 --> 00:58:35.230
  • punctuate and highlight

  • "I haven't been right."
  • 01:00:04.010 --> 01:00:05.030

  • hell, and the grave,
  • 01:00:56.180 --> 01:00:57.290
  • and he is the way,

  • "You don't belong.

  • You're not anointed."
  • 01:01:09.060 --> 01:01:11.180
  • You know, I remember the morning
  • 01:01:11.180 --> 01:01:13.270
  • after I got born again.
  • 01:01:13.270 --> 01:01:15.170
  • You know, at 21 years of age,
  • 01:01:15.170 --> 01:01:17.090
  • I was making my bed.
  • 01:01:17.090 --> 01:01:18.110
  • I'd spent all night looking for
  • 01:01:18.110 --> 01:01:20.010
  • the Book of Paul because John
  • 01:01:20.010 --> 01:01:21.200
  • would say Paul said this and
  • 01:01:21.200 --> 01:01:22.250
  • Paul said that.
  • 01:01:22.250 --> 01:01:23.150
  • And I was like, oh my gosh,
  • 01:01:23.150 --> 01:01:24.160
  • you know, I gotta find
  • 01:01:24.160 --> 01:01:25.120
  • the Book of Paul.
  • 01:01:25.120 --> 01:01:26.020
  • And I opened it up to
  • 01:01:26.020 --> 01:01:26.220
  • Corinthians and it said,
  • 01:01:26.220 --> 01:01:27.220
  • "If any man be in Christ,
  • 01:01:27.220 --> 01:01:28.270
  • they're a new creation."
  • 01:01:28.270 --> 01:01:29.280
  • I was like,
  • 01:01:29.280 --> 01:01:30.180
  • I found the Book of Paul!
  • 01:01:30.180 --> 01:01:32.070
  • I was so excited and, you know,
  • 01:01:32.070 --> 01:01:34.090
  • I was making my bed and just
  • 01:01:34.090 --> 01:01:36.120
  • felt light for the first time,
  • 01:01:36.120 --> 01:01:38.160
  • felt hopeful.
  • 01:01:38.160 --> 01:01:40.060
  • And I heard a whisper.
  • 01:01:40.060 --> 01:01:42.100
  • I heard,
  • 01:01:42.100 --> 01:01:43.100
  • "Nothing happened to you."
  • 01:01:43.100 --> 01:01:44.100
  • You know,
  • 01:01:44.100 --> 01:01:45.160
  • Christine made it clear,
  • 01:01:45.160 --> 01:01:46.130
  • the cellulite is still coming
  • 01:01:46.130 --> 01:01:47.240
  • back to the chair with you,
  • 01:01:47.240 --> 01:01:49.230
  • which we really think that
  • 01:01:49.230 --> 01:01:51.160
  • we should ask God to make that
  • 01:01:51.160 --> 01:01:52.210
  • a bonus, like you get saved,
  • 01:01:52.210 --> 01:01:53.280
  • you lose cellulite.
  • 01:01:53.280 --> 01:01:54.230
  • Everybody would want
  • 01:01:54.230 --> 01:01:55.140
  • to get saved.
  • 01:01:55.140 --> 01:01:56.100
  • But anyway, so, but you know,
  • 01:01:56.100 --> 01:01:58.160
  • you know, I remember I heard,
  • 01:01:58.160 --> 01:02:00.210
  • "Nothing happened."
  • 01:02:00.210 --> 01:02:01.160
  • And I froze for a moment.
  • 01:02:01.180 --> 01:02:04.180
  • I froze.
  • 01:02:04.180 --> 01:02:06.230
  • And then I thought for 21 years,
  • 01:02:07.140 --> 01:02:10.140
  • I have never heard,
  • 01:02:10.140 --> 01:02:12.250
  • "You're not a Christian."
  • 01:02:12.250 --> 01:02:15.060
  • For 21 years of living
  • 01:02:15.060 --> 01:02:18.060
  • in darkness, I never heard,
  • 01:02:18.060 --> 01:02:21.050
  • "You're not a Christian."
  • 01:02:21.050 --> 01:02:23.210
  • And then I began to think,
  • 01:02:23.210 --> 01:02:24.210
  • "Wait, he is trying
  • 01:02:24.210 --> 01:02:27.090
  • to steal something
  • 01:02:27.090 --> 01:02:29.110
  • I've never had before."
  • 01:02:29.110 --> 01:02:31.210
  • The thief comes to steal, kill,
  • 01:02:32.270 --> 01:02:35.270
  • and destroy, but Jesus comes
  • 01:02:35.270 --> 01:02:38.150
  • that we might be
  • 01:02:38.150 --> 01:02:39.190
  • anointed to have life
  • 01:02:39.190 --> 01:02:42.050
  • and life more abundantly.
  • 01:02:43.280 --> 01:02:46.280
  • In my nation and maybe many
  • 01:02:46.280 --> 01:02:48.230
  • of you are gonna go home to the
  • 01:02:48.230 --> 01:02:50.010
  • same situation that a lot of,
  • 01:02:50.010 --> 01:02:52.260
  • you know, a lot of you might
  • 01:02:52.260 --> 01:02:54.210
  • when I describe this,
  • 01:02:54.210 --> 01:02:55.140
  • you might identify with.
  • 01:02:55.140 --> 01:02:58.010
  • In my nation, a lot of times
  • 01:02:58.010 --> 01:02:59.090
  • they say things like,
  • 01:02:59.090 --> 01:03:01.090
  • "Women are unfit.
  • 01:03:01.090 --> 01:03:03.090
  • They can't be leaders.
  • 01:03:03.090 --> 01:03:05.010
  • They can't be pastors.
  • 01:03:05.010 --> 01:03:07.010
  • They're easily deceived.
  • 01:03:07.010 --> 01:03:09.060
  • They're more gullible than men."
  • 01:03:09.060 --> 01:03:11.260
  • You know, they use Timothy, you
  • 01:03:11.260 --> 01:03:14.000
  • know, Paul's words to Timothy.
  • 01:03:14.000 --> 01:03:15.090
  • They do those things to beat it
  • 01:03:15.090 --> 01:03:17.120
  • up, and put women down,
  • 01:03:17.120 --> 01:03:19.230
  • and hold them down.
  • 01:03:19.230 --> 01:03:20.290
  • I'm gonna have them put up
  • 01:03:20.290 --> 01:03:22.220
  • a picture of my Sophia running.
  • 01:03:22.220 --> 01:03:25.140
  • Okay, this is Sophia
  • 01:03:25.140 --> 01:03:26.210
  • running, okay?
  • 01:03:26.210 --> 01:03:28.090
  • Yeah, you can just see
  • 01:03:28.090 --> 01:03:29.240
  • the package is consistent.
  • 01:03:29.240 --> 01:03:31.200
  • She is topless,
  • 01:03:31.200 --> 01:03:32.280
  • running in the very first snow
  • 01:03:32.280 --> 01:03:35.190
  • of Colorado.
  • 01:03:35.190 --> 01:03:36.150
  • She got out of her bed
  • 01:03:36.150 --> 01:03:38.060
  • and she saw the snow.
  • 01:03:38.060 --> 01:03:39.110
  • She pulled those moccasins
  • 01:03:39.110 --> 01:03:40.210
  • on and she was just running.
  • 01:03:40.240 --> 01:03:43.240
  • Okay, she's free.
  • 01:03:43.240 --> 01:03:46.080
  • She's free.
  • 01:03:46.080 --> 01:03:47.240
  • She's completely free
  • 01:03:47.240 --> 01:03:49.020
  • of any self-consciousness.
  • 01:03:49.020 --> 01:03:51.290
  • She's free.
  • 01:03:51.290 --> 01:03:53.190
  • When I hear those kind of words,
  • 01:03:54.070 --> 01:03:57.070
  • "unfit, easily deceived,
  • 01:03:57.070 --> 01:03:59.140
  • gullible," I can see me.
  • 01:04:00.060 --> 01:04:03.060
  • I can see me because I've been
  • 01:04:05.110 --> 01:04:08.110
  • unfit until Jesus made me fit.
  • 01:04:08.110 --> 01:04:10.100
  • I've been easily deceived,
  • 01:04:11.090 --> 01:04:14.090
  • until the Holy Spirit and
  • 01:04:14.090 --> 01:04:15.240
  • the Word of God imparted wisdom.
  • 01:04:16.080 --> 01:04:19.080
  • I've been gullible.
  • 01:04:19.080 --> 01:04:20.240
  • I believed the best
  • 01:04:20.240 --> 01:04:21.200
  • and maybe was confused.
  • 01:04:21.200 --> 01:04:23.230
  • But you know what?
  • 01:04:23.230 --> 01:04:24.200
  • You get in the company of other
  • 01:04:24.200 --> 01:04:25.240
  • people and you have wise
  • 01:04:25.240 --> 01:04:26.280
  • counsel, you aren't so gullible.
  • 01:04:28.290 --> 01:04:31.290
  • But when I think about that
  • 01:04:31.290 --> 01:04:32.280
  • being assigned to her, it
  • 01:04:32.280 --> 01:04:35.260
  • just really makes me angry.
  • 01:04:35.260 --> 01:04:38.000
  • I'm like, nobody's saying that
  • 01:04:38.000 --> 01:04:38.220
  • over my granddaughter.
  • 01:04:38.220 --> 01:04:40.010
  • Nobody's saying that over
  • 01:04:40.010 --> 01:04:41.020
  • my granddaughters.
  • 01:04:41.020 --> 01:04:41.260
  • Nobody's saying that over
  • 01:04:41.260 --> 01:04:42.280
  • my daughters in the spirit.
  • 01:04:42.280 --> 01:04:44.180
  • Nobody is gonna say
  • 01:04:44.180 --> 01:04:45.070
  • And I was getting all like
  • 01:04:47.100 --> 01:04:48.170
  • my back up and God said,
  • 01:04:48.170 --> 01:04:50.000
  • "Well, if you don't want it
  • 01:04:50.000 --> 01:04:51.290
  • said over her,
  • 01:04:51.290 --> 01:04:54.040
  • then you must no longer allow it
  • 01:04:54.040 --> 01:04:55.250
  • to be said over you."
  • 01:04:55.250 --> 01:04:58.010
  • Because what we allow for us,
  • 01:04:58.010 --> 01:05:00.060
  • whether we mean it to or not,
  • 01:05:00.060 --> 01:05:01.280
  • moves into the next generation.
  • 01:05:02.000 --> 01:05:05.000
  • You are fit.
  • 01:05:05.000 --> 01:05:06.220
  • You are wise.
  • 01:05:06.220 --> 01:05:08.190
  • 2 Corinthians 6:1 through 10
  • 01:05:11.190 --> 01:05:13.140
  • says, "Companions--" This is--we
  • 01:05:13.140 --> 01:05:15.030
  • are doing this together.
  • 01:05:15.030 --> 01:05:16.090
  • "Companions as we are in this
  • 01:05:16.090 --> 01:05:18.220
  • work with you, we beg you,
  • 01:05:19.140 --> 01:05:22.140
  • please don't squander one bit
  • 01:05:23.290 --> 01:05:26.290
  • of this marvelous life God
  • 01:05:26.290 --> 01:05:29.070
  • has given us.
  • 01:05:29.070 --> 01:05:30.170
  • God reminds us, I heard your
  • 01:05:30.170 --> 01:05:33.120
  • call in the nick of time;
  • 01:05:33.120 --> 01:05:35.070
  • The day you needed me,
  • 01:05:35.070 --> 01:05:36.070
  • I was there to help.
  • 01:05:36.070 --> 01:05:37.250
  • Well, now is the right time to
  • 01:05:37.250 --> 01:05:40.130
  • listen, the day to be helped.
  • 01:05:40.130 --> 01:05:43.010
  • Don't put it off;
  • 01:05:43.010 --> 01:05:45.110
  • don't frustrate God's work
  • 01:05:45.110 --> 01:05:47.140
  • by showing up late,
  • 01:05:47.140 --> 01:05:48.260
  • throwing a question mark
  • 01:05:48.260 --> 01:05:50.030
  • over everything we're doing.
  • 01:05:50.090 --> 01:05:53.090
  • Our work as God's servants gets
  • 01:05:53.090 --> 01:05:55.280
  • validated or not in the details.
  • 01:05:57.200 --> 01:06:00.220
  • And people are watching us
  • 01:06:00.220 --> 01:06:03.020
  • as we stay at our post,
  • 01:06:03.190 --> 01:06:06.190
  • You know, I believe that Colour
  • 01:06:13.290 --> 01:06:16.290
  • has this ability to deposit an
  • 01:06:18.180 --> 01:06:21.180
  • ember or a coal in your heart.
  • 01:06:23.120 --> 01:06:26.120
  • We're gonna put a picture
  • 01:06:26.120 --> 01:06:27.090
  • of a ember and a coal up there.
  • 01:06:27.090 --> 01:06:28.240
  • It's just like this little
  • 01:06:28.240 --> 01:06:30.260
  • fiery, like take the coal,
  • 01:06:30.260 --> 01:06:33.080
  • cleanse my lips,
  • 01:06:33.080 --> 01:06:34.060
  • here I am thing.
  • 01:06:34.060 --> 01:06:35.040
  • Just deposit in your heart
  • 01:06:35.040 --> 01:06:37.250
  • a little fire, warmth.
  • 01:06:37.260 --> 01:06:40.260
  • You can go home, you can feel it
  • 01:06:40.260 --> 01:06:43.130
  • maybe for a little while.
  • 01:06:43.130 --> 01:06:45.150
  • You can go to sleep feeling the
  • 01:06:45.150 --> 01:06:46.250
  • warmth but there comes a time
  • 01:06:46.250 --> 01:06:49.130
  • that if you don't fan that
  • 01:06:49.130 --> 01:06:51.160
  • ember, it turns to ash.
  • 01:06:51.170 --> 01:06:54.170
  • You can come back again.
  • 01:06:54.170 --> 01:06:56.130
  • You can come to church
  • 01:06:56.130 --> 01:06:57.050
  • on Sunday.
  • 01:06:57.050 --> 01:06:57.250
  • You can keep, you know, putting
  • 01:06:57.250 --> 01:06:59.190
  • another coal, and putting
  • 01:06:59.190 --> 01:07:01.030
  • another coal, and putting
  • 01:07:01.030 --> 01:07:02.150
  • another coal in but it's never
  • 01:07:02.150 --> 01:07:04.110
  • gonna go into a flame or a fire
  • 01:07:04.280 --> 01:07:07.280
  • unless you begin to fan it.
  • 01:07:07.280 --> 01:07:10.190
  • I became a Christian in the '80s
  • 01:07:10.190 --> 01:07:12.050
  • and in the '90s, we had a lot
  • 01:07:12.050 --> 01:07:14.120
  • of weird things happening,
  • 01:07:14.120 --> 01:07:16.110
  • but we had the presence
  • 01:07:16.110 --> 01:07:17.090
  • of God in a lot of the meetings.
  • 01:07:17.090 --> 01:07:19.140
  • And we would tolerate things
  • 01:07:19.140 --> 01:07:20.240
  • for 3 hours
  • 01:07:20.240 --> 01:07:21.230
  • for maybe 5 minutes
  • 01:07:21.230 --> 01:07:23.080
  • in the presence of God.
  • 01:07:23.080 --> 01:07:24.130
  • And I remember we would leave
  • 01:07:24.130 --> 01:07:26.170
  • like with a coal, and I remember
  • 01:07:26.170 --> 01:07:29.050
  • I would bring that coal home.
  • 01:07:29.050 --> 01:07:30.280
  • I would remember what
  • 01:07:30.280 --> 01:07:31.280
  • the presence of God felt like.
  • 01:07:31.280 --> 01:07:34.030
  • I would remember what the
  • 01:07:34.030 --> 01:07:35.010
  • anointing of God felt like on my
  • 01:07:35.010 --> 01:07:37.090
  • life, and I would bring it into
  • 01:07:37.090 --> 01:07:40.030
  • my house.
  • 01:07:40.030 --> 01:07:41.180
  • And I'd be like, "Okay,
  • 01:07:41.180 --> 01:07:42.180
  • I don't want this going out.
  • 01:07:42.180 --> 01:07:45.000
  • I don't want this going out.
  • 01:07:45.000 --> 01:07:46.230
  • What do I need to do to keep
  • 01:07:46.260 --> 01:07:49.260
  • this alive?"
  • 01:07:49.260 --> 01:07:52.230
  • And I remember I would literally
  • 01:07:52.230 --> 01:07:54.120
  • say, "Is there anything
  • 01:07:55.100 --> 01:07:58.100
  • displeasing in my life that
  • 01:07:58.140 --> 01:08:01.160
  • would muffle this flame, that
  • 01:08:01.160 --> 01:08:04.120
  • would not--douse it, would not
  • 01:08:04.120 --> 01:08:06.240
  • serve to cause it to grow?"
  • 01:08:07.110 --> 01:08:10.110
  • You know, I would say,
  • 01:08:10.110 --> 01:08:11.050
  • "God, I want to do whatever
  • 01:08:11.050 --> 01:08:13.130
  • you need me to do
  • 01:08:13.130 --> 01:08:15.230
  • to keep this alive."
  • 01:08:15.230 --> 01:08:17.200
  • It wasn't a salvation thing.
  • 01:08:18.250 --> 01:08:21.250
  • It was a sanctification thing.
  • 01:08:22.010 --> 01:08:25.010
  • I wanted to create sacred space
  • 01:08:25.010 --> 01:08:27.250
  • in my life, sacred space in our
  • 01:08:28.190 --> 01:08:31.190
  • home so that the presence of God
  • 01:08:31.190 --> 01:08:34.100
  • would always feel welcomed.
  • 01:08:34.170 --> 01:08:37.170
  • You know, I don't know if maybe
  • 01:08:37.170 --> 01:08:39.280
  • it's just me, but I feel
  • 01:08:41.060 --> 01:08:44.060
  • evident in my life.
  • 01:08:49.080 --> 01:08:51.170
  • And so, I personally have said,
  • 01:08:51.170 --> 01:08:54.060
  • "God, I--any area of sympathy
  • 01:08:55.110 --> 01:08:58.110
  • that I would have to things that
  • 01:08:58.110 --> 01:09:01.010
  • are a profane, to things that
  • 01:09:01.010 --> 01:09:03.110
  • are familiar, I don't want it.
  • 01:09:05.250 --> 01:09:08.250
  • Let me see what needs to be set
  • 01:09:08.250 --> 01:09:11.240
  • apart for you."
  • 01:09:11.240 --> 01:09:13.230
  • Again, it's not like God's gonna
  • 01:09:13.230 --> 01:09:15.080
  • leave me or forsake me, it's
  • 01:09:15.080 --> 01:09:16.210
  • that I want to fan into a flame
  • 01:09:19.010 --> 01:09:22.010
  • so it isn't just about me
  • 01:09:22.010 --> 01:09:23.130
  • feeling warm.
  • 01:09:23.130 --> 01:09:24.080
  • Other people can come and feel
  • 01:09:24.080 --> 01:09:26.150
  • the warmth of God.
  • 01:09:26.150 --> 01:09:27.180
  • Other people can come and feel
  • 01:09:27.180 --> 01:09:29.230
  • the fire of God.
  • 01:09:29.230 --> 01:09:31.230
  • Do you understand that we have
  • 01:09:31.230 --> 01:09:33.140
  • a generation of people that are
  • 01:09:33.140 --> 01:09:36.050
  • sick and the church is supposed
  • 01:09:36.050 --> 01:09:38.180
  • to be at its bedside?
  • 01:09:38.180 --> 01:09:40.150
  • But too often we're in bed
  • 01:09:40.150 --> 01:09:42.070
  • with the world.
  • 01:09:42.070 --> 01:09:43.280
  • We need to be taking its pulse.
  • 01:09:43.280 --> 01:09:46.150
  • We need to understand that we
  • 01:09:46.150 --> 01:09:48.230
  • need to be healthy if we are
  • 01:09:48.230 --> 01:09:50.280
  • "You need to stop
  • 01:10:00.020 --> 01:10:01.240
  • putting question marks where
  • 01:10:02.260 --> 01:10:05.260
  • I need you to put periods
  • 01:10:06.040 --> 01:10:09.040
  • and exclamations.
  • 01:10:09.040 --> 01:10:12.000
  • Lisa, you are
  • 01:10:12.000 --> 01:10:12.230
  • an older woman now.
  • 01:10:12.230 --> 01:10:14.140
  • You need to settle this.
  • 01:10:14.140 --> 01:10:16.270
  • You need to be set
  • 01:10:16.270 --> 01:10:18.070
  • - Lisa: 2 Timothy 1:6 through 7
  • 01:10:29.220 --> 01:10:31.130
  • says, "For this reason I remind
  • 01:10:31.130 --> 01:10:32.250
  • you to fan into flame the gift
  • 01:10:32.250 --> 01:10:35.090
  • of God, which is in you through
  • 01:10:35.090 --> 01:10:36.240
  • the laying on of my hands, for
  • 01:10:36.240 --> 01:10:38.130
  • God gave us a spirit not of fear
  • 01:10:38.130 --> 01:10:40.120
  • but of power, love
  • 01:10:40.120 --> 01:10:41.280
  • and self-control."
  • 01:10:41.280 --> 01:10:44.180
  • I'm gonna close with
  • 01:10:44.180 --> 01:10:47.090
  • this story here.
  • 01:10:47.090 --> 01:10:48.240
  • My husband and I
  • 01:10:48.240 --> 01:10:50.130
  • have the privilege of sowing
  • 01:10:51.160 --> 01:10:54.160
  • books into other countries
  • 01:10:54.160 --> 01:10:56.260
  • in over 70 languages
  • 01:10:56.260 --> 01:10:58.230
  • and one of our major thrusts
  • 01:10:58.230 --> 01:11:01.050
  • are in the Middle East
  • 01:11:01.050 --> 01:11:02.120
  • and one of our major outreaches
  • 01:11:02.120 --> 01:11:05.100
  • And last August, I was driving
  • 01:11:07.120 --> 01:11:10.100
  • in my car and I got a phone call
  • 01:11:10.180 --> 01:11:13.180
  • that the precious man who
  • 01:11:13.200 --> 01:11:16.200
  • distributed our resources in
  • 01:11:16.200 --> 01:11:18.080
  • Arabic had been killed by ISIS.
  • 01:11:18.080 --> 01:11:21.030
  • And I'm driving
  • 01:11:21.030 --> 01:11:22.240
  • in my American car with
  • 01:11:22.240 --> 01:11:24.250
  • my air-conditioning on the way
  • 01:11:24.250 --> 01:11:27.110
  • to get microdermabrasion.
  • 01:11:27.110 --> 01:11:29.290
  • And I just have to be honest
  • 01:11:29.290 --> 01:11:31.000
  • with you, my little world just
  • 01:11:31.000 --> 01:11:32.150
  • kind of crashed into a bubble.
  • 01:11:33.110 --> 01:11:36.110
  • They said, "Will you write his
  • 01:11:36.170 --> 01:11:39.170
  • widow a letter?"
  • 01:11:39.170 --> 01:11:40.070
  • I said, "Of course, I would be
  • 01:11:40.070 --> 01:11:41.230
  • happy to write her a letter."
  • 01:11:42.050 --> 01:11:45.050
  • Stared at my computer
  • 01:11:45.050 --> 01:11:46.040
  • for 2 hours,
  • 01:11:46.040 --> 01:11:47.260
  • didn't know what to say to her.
  • 01:11:47.260 --> 01:11:50.140
  • "Thank you for your partnership.
  • 01:11:50.230 --> 01:11:53.230
  • Thank you--"
  • 01:11:53.230 --> 01:11:55.140
  • Just, there was no words.
  • 01:11:55.140 --> 01:11:58.120
  • "You need to stop
  • 01:12:04.120 --> 01:12:07.010
  • putting question marks where
  • 01:12:07.010 --> 01:12:10.010
  • I need you to put periods

  • and exclamations.
  • 01:12:13.250 --> 01:12:16.140
  • Lisa, you are
  • 01:12:16.140 --> 01:12:17.040
  • an older woman now.
  • 01:12:17.040 --> 01:12:18.280
  • You need to settle this.
  • 01:12:18.280 --> 01:12:21.100
  • You need to be set
  • 01:12:21.100 --> 01:12:22.110
  • on some stuff."
  • 01:12:22.110 --> 01:12:24.280
  • So, I wrote her a letter
  • 01:12:25.110 --> 01:12:28.110
  • and then I called
  • 01:12:28.110 --> 01:12:29.200
  • my international guy and I said,
  • 01:12:29.220 --> 01:12:32.220
  • "Rob, I just, I just don't know
  • 01:12:32.220 --> 01:12:35.030
  • what to think."
  • 01:12:35.030 --> 01:12:35.240
  • And he said,
  • 01:12:35.240 --> 01:12:36.140
  • "Lisa, the truth is some give
  • 01:12:37.160 --> 01:12:40.160
  • much and others give all."
  • 01:12:41.280 --> 01:12:44.280
  • And we're living in a day
  • 01:12:44.280 --> 01:12:46.010
  • and a time where some of us
  • 01:12:46.220 --> 01:12:49.220
  • might give all, I don't know,
  • 01:12:50.030 --> 01:12:53.030
  • that's the crown of life.
  • 01:12:53.030 --> 01:12:55.260
  • But we need to at least give
  • 01:12:55.260 --> 01:12:57.150
  • much because much
  • 01:12:57.150 --> 01:12:59.150
  • is needed right now.
  • 01:12:59.150 --> 01:13:02.010
  • I just need to know,
  • 01:13:02.010 --> 01:13:04.270
  • would you be willing to ask God
  • 01:13:06.170 --> 01:13:09.170
  • if there's some space in
  • 01:13:09.170 --> 01:13:11.010
  • your life that might need
  • 01:13:11.160 --> 01:13:14.160
  • to be dumped on to that flame,
  • 01:13:14.160 --> 01:13:16.290
  • some chaff that maybe you could
  • 01:13:16.290 --> 01:13:19.000
  • put and fan into a flame so that
  • 01:13:20.240 --> 01:13:23.240
  • people see that there
  • 01:13:23.240 --> 01:13:25.260
  • is a distinguishing between
  • 01:13:25.260 --> 01:13:27.110
  • you and the world?
  • 01:13:28.010 --> 01:13:31.010
  • Because my Bible says that
  • 01:13:31.010 --> 01:13:33.250
  • friendship with the world
  • 01:13:33.250 --> 01:13:36.170
  • is enmity with God.
  • 01:13:37.130 --> 01:13:40.130
  • And I'm not asking you to be
  • 01:13:40.130 --> 01:13:41.250
  • an enemy with the world,
  • 01:13:41.250 --> 01:13:43.230
  • I'm asking you to be a friend
  • 01:13:43.230 --> 01:13:45.080
  • to the world, not with it,
  • 01:13:46.050 --> 01:13:49.050
  • not part of its system,
  • 01:13:49.050 --> 01:13:51.120
  • 1 John 2:15 says,
  • 01:13:55.020 --> 01:13:57.030
  • "Do not love the world
  • 01:13:57.030 --> 01:13:58.030
  • or the things in the world.
  • 01:13:58.030 --> 01:13:59.120
  • If anyone loves the world,
  • 01:13:59.120 --> 01:14:01.280
  • the love of the Father
  • 01:14:01.280 --> 01:14:03.160
  • is not in him.
  • 01:14:03.160 --> 01:14:04.220
  • For all that is in the world
  • 01:14:04.220 --> 01:14:06.050
  • the desires of the flesh,
  • 01:14:06.050 --> 01:14:07.140
  • the desires of the eye,
  • 01:14:07.140 --> 01:14:08.180
  • the pride of life is not
  • 01:14:08.180 --> 01:14:10.080
  • from the Father
  • 01:14:10.080 --> 01:14:11.130
  • but from the world."
  • 01:14:11.130 --> 01:14:13.100
  • It is attached
  • 01:14:13.100 --> 01:14:14.140
  • to this temporal realm.
  • 01:14:14.140 --> 01:14:16.180
  • "And the world is passing away
  • 01:14:16.180 --> 01:14:18.270
  • along with its desires,
  • 01:14:18.270 --> 01:14:20.200
  • but whoever does,"
  • 01:14:20.200 --> 01:14:22.210
  • not just thinks about it,
  • 01:14:22.210 --> 01:14:24.090
  • "does this will of God
  • 01:14:24.090 --> 01:14:25.270
  • abides forever."
  • 01:14:25.270 --> 01:14:28.120
  • The desires of the flesh,
  • 01:14:28.120 --> 01:14:30.240
  • wanting your own way.
  • 01:14:30.240 --> 01:14:32.220
  • The desires of the eyes,
  • 01:14:32.220 --> 01:14:33.290
  • The pride of life, wanting to
  • 01:14:36.040 --> 01:14:39.040
  • appear important in the eyes
  • 01:14:40.040 --> 01:14:43.040
  • of other people.
  • 01:14:43.040 --> 01:14:45.040
  • Hey, at the end of the day,
  • 01:14:45.090 --> 01:14:48.090
  • I want to live a life
  • 01:14:48.090 --> 01:14:49.170
  • that honors our Father,
  • 01:14:50.150 --> 01:14:53.150
  • Can I get you to stand
  • 01:14:57.120 --> 01:14:58.130
  • to your feet right now?
  • 01:14:58.130 --> 01:15:01.010
  • You know, this isn't just
  • 01:15:01.010 --> 01:15:02.200
  • a normal conference.
  • 01:15:02.200 --> 01:15:04.280
  • I believe that this conference
  • 01:15:04.280 --> 01:15:06.090
  • has a very prophetic hand on it,
  • 01:15:06.280 --> 01:15:09.280
  • and I believe we need to preempt
  • 01:15:09.280 --> 01:15:12.060
  • and take a stand of where we
  • 01:15:12.060 --> 01:15:14.210
  • want to be.
  • 01:15:14.210 --> 01:15:15.110
  • And I think one of the most
  • 01:15:15.110 --> 01:15:16.090
  • powerful things that we can do
  • 01:15:16.240 --> 01:15:19.240
  • is pray a prayer.
  • 01:15:19.240 --> 01:15:22.080
  • And I'm going to pray a prayer
  • 01:15:22.080 --> 01:15:23.250
  • that is the Word of God.
  • 01:15:23.250 --> 01:15:26.100
  • It's found in Acts chapter 4,
  • 01:15:26.100 --> 01:15:28.100
  • verses 29 through 31.
  • 01:15:28.100 --> 01:15:30.000
  • I'm gonna declare this
  • 01:15:30.000 --> 01:15:31.230
  • Scriptures over you from
  • 01:15:31.230 --> 01:15:33.110
  • "So now, Lord, listen to
  • 01:15:35.240 --> 01:15:38.130
  • their threats to harm us
  • 01:15:38.130 --> 01:15:39.210
  • and empower us
  • 01:15:40.020 --> 01:15:43.020
  • as your servants,"
  • 01:15:43.020 --> 01:15:44.020
  • each and every one of us,
  • 01:15:44.020 --> 01:15:45.110
  • "as your servants to speak
  • 01:15:45.110 --> 01:15:48.000
  • the Word of God freely
  • 01:15:48.000 --> 01:15:51.000
  • and courageously!
  • 01:15:51.000 --> 01:15:52.050
  • Father, stretch out your hand of
  • 01:15:52.050 --> 01:15:54.200
  • power through us to heal, and to
  • 01:15:54.200 --> 01:15:57.100
  • move in signs and wonders by the
  • 01:15:57.180 --> 01:16:00.200
  • name of your holy Son, Jesus!"
  • 01:16:01.190 --> 01:16:04.190
  • And what did these kind
  • 01:16:04.190 --> 01:16:05.260
  • of prayers set in motion?
  • 01:16:05.260 --> 01:16:07.270
  • Well, they set in motion the
  • 01:16:07.270 --> 01:16:10.120
  • tsunami that Bobbie was talking
  • 01:16:10.120 --> 01:16:12.040
  • about, because tsunamis start
  • 01:16:12.040 --> 01:16:14.100
  • with an earthquake.
  • 01:16:14.100 --> 01:16:15.280
  • Tsunamis start when our
  • 01:16:15.280 --> 01:16:17.290
  • foundations begin to shift
  • 01:16:17.290 --> 01:16:19.190
  • and to change.
  • 01:16:19.190 --> 01:16:20.270
  • And we plant ourselves in the
  • 01:16:20.270 --> 01:16:23.040
  • kingdom of heaven, and we step
  • 01:16:23.040 --> 01:16:25.000
  • aside from the kingdom
  • 01:16:25.000 --> 01:16:26.190
  • of this earth.
  • 01:16:26.190 --> 01:16:27.270
  • And it says, "At that moment the
  • 01:16:27.270 --> 01:16:30.100
  • earth shook beneath them,
  • 01:16:30.100 --> 01:16:32.210
  • causing the building they were

  • in to tremble!
  • 01:16:33.150 --> 01:16:34.240
  • And each one of them was filled
  • 01:16:34.240 --> 01:16:36.240
  • with the Holy Spirit, and they
  • 01:16:36.240 --> 01:16:39.130
  • proclaimed the Word of God with
  • 01:16:39.130 --> 01:16:41.290

  • Remember to fan it into a flame!
  • 01:17:02.250 --> 01:17:05.250
  • In Jesus' name, amen and amen.
