  • WHEN THE LOST ARE FOUND.
  • 00:00:01.210 --> 00:00:04.030
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING
  • 00:00:04.060 --> 00:00:08.150
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:00:08.180 --> 00:00:14.280
  • 00:00:15.010 --> 00:00:17.060
  • WHY DON'T YOU GRAB YOUR BIBLES AND TURN WITH ME
  • 00:00:17.090 --> 00:00:19.160
  • OVER TO THE GOSPEL OF LUKE 12.
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:23.010
  • THE TITLE OF MY MESSAGE IS:
  • 00:00:23.040 --> 00:00:24.020
  • THINGS TO DO BEFORE THE END OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:00:24.050 --> 00:00:26.290
  • ALL RIGHT SO LET'S JUST IMAGINE FOR A MOMENT
  • 00:00:27.020 --> 00:00:29.200
  • THAT WE KNEW WHEN JESUS WAS COMING.
  • 00:00:29.230 --> 00:00:32.240
  • NOW WE KNOW THAT CAN'T BE TRUE RIGHT.
  • 00:00:32.270 --> 00:00:35.060
  • BUT LET'S JUST SAY, FOR THE SAKE OF AN
  • 00:00:35.090 --> 00:00:37.100
  • ILLUSTRATION, WE KNEW.
  • 00:00:37.130 --> 00:00:38.290
  • LET'S SAY WE KNEW THAT JESUS WAS COMING BACK
  • 00:00:39.020 --> 00:00:41.190
  • TOMORROW AFTERNOON AT 3:00PM.
  • 00:00:41.220 --> 00:00:45.190
  • HOW DO YOU THINK WE'D BE DOING
  • 00:00:45.220 --> 00:00:46.280
  • SPIRITUALLY AROUND 2:45?
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:49.240
  • I THINK WE'D BE DOING PRETTY WELL.
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:52.060
  • I THINK WE'D HAVE OUR SUNDAY MORNING SMILES
  • 00:00:52.090 --> 00:00:54.150
  • AND OUR COME-QUICKLY-JESUS ATTITUDE RIGHT?
  • 00:00:54.180 --> 00:00:58.150
  • BECAUSE WHY?
  • 00:00:58.180 --> 00:00:59.170
  • BECAUSE JESUS WOULD BE COMING, BUT WE SHOULD
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:02.040
  • LITERALLY LIVE EVERYDAY AS THOUGH IT WERE THAT DAY.
  • 00:01:02.070 --> 00:01:07.030
  • SOMEONE ONCE ASKED THE GREAT EVANGELIST D. L. MOODY,
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:10.080
  • "IF YOU KNEW THE LORD WOULD RETURN TONIGHT,
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:12.280
  • HOW WOULD YOU SPEND THE REST OF THE DAY?"
  • 00:01:13.010 --> 00:01:15.220
  • HE REPLIED WITHOUT HESITATION,
  • 00:01:15.250 --> 00:01:17.110
  • "I WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING DIFFERENT THAN I DO EVERYDAY."
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:21.010
  • GET IT? SO WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
  • 00:01:21.040 --> 00:01:24.030
  • BECAUSE IT'S A REMINDER THAT IF LIFE WERE TO END,
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:27.170
  • I WOULD BE READY SO THE RAPTURE COULD COME
  • 00:01:27.200 --> 00:01:30.200
  • OR DEATH COULD COME.
  • 00:01:30.230 --> 00:01:32.050
  • YOU KNOW, MANY YEARS AGO OVER LEGAL DOCUMENTS AND
  • 00:01:32.080 --> 00:01:35.110
  • ESPECIALLY FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS THEY USED
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:37.110
  • TO WRITE THESE WORDS: MEMENTO MORI.
  • 00:01:37.140 --> 00:01:40.040
  • ANDMEMENTO MORI MEANS THINK OF DEATH.
  • 00:01:40.070 --> 00:01:43.060
  • IT WAS NOT THERE IN A MORBID WAY, BUT THERE AS
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:46.250
  • A REMINDER LIKE HEY, YOU MAY HAVE A LOT OF MONEY IN THE
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:48.290
  • BANK BUTMEMENTO MORI - THINK OF DEATH.
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:52.060
  • AND I THINK IN THE SAME WAY, WE SHOULD JUST REMIND
  • 00:01:52.090 --> 00:01:54.060
  • OURSELVES YEAH IT'S GREAT WHATEVER YOU HAVE GOING ON
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:56.150
  • IN LIFE, BUT MAKE SURE YOU'RE LIVING IN A WAY
  • 00:01:56.180 --> 00:01:58.230
  • AS HANS WAS SAYING THAT YOU'RE LIVING PURE BEFORE HIM.
  • 00:01:58.260 --> 00:02:02.020
  • THE BIBLE SAYS "HE THAT HAS THIS HOPE THAT IS
  • 00:02:02.050 --> 00:02:04.050
  • THE HOPE OF THE LORD'S RETURN,
  • 00:02:04.080 --> 00:02:05.190
  • PURIFIES HIMSELF EVEN AS HE IS PURE."
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:09.020
  • SO I THINK A LOT OF TIMES WE'LL STUDY THESE EVENTS
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:13.170
  • LIKE THE RAPTURE AND THE TRIBULATION PERIOD AND
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:16.180
  • TALK ABOUT ARMAGEDDON AND THE ANTI-CHRIST BUT IT
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:18.250
  • WON'T AFFECT US AND IF IT DOESN'T AFFECT YOU IN THE
  • 00:02:18.280 --> 00:02:21.290
  • WAY THAT YOU'VE LIVED, MAN, YOU'VE MISSED THE POINT.
  • 00:02:22.020 --> 00:02:24.180
  • I HEARD A STORY ABOUT AN OLD MAN THAT WAS WALKING
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:26.190
  • ALONG AND SUDDENLY HE HEARD A VOICE SAY TO HIM,
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:29.070
  • "PICK ME UP AND KISS ME AND I'LL BECOME
  • 00:02:29.100 --> 00:02:31.150
  • A BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS."
  • 00:02:31.180 --> 00:02:33.080
  • HE'S LOOKING AROUND. "WHO SAID THAT?"
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:34.140
  • HE THOUGHT, "I'M IMAGINING THINGS."
  • 00:02:34.170 --> 00:02:35.260
  • AND HE WALKS A LITTLE BIT FURTHER AND HEARS IT AGAIN.
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:37.150
  • "PICK ME UP AND KISS ME.
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:38.280
  • I'LL BECOME A BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS."
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:40.240
  • HE LOOKS AGAIN. HE SEES A FROG.
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:42.260
  • AND FOR THE THIRD TIME - THIS IS A TRUE STORY -
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:45.060
  • FOR THE THIRD TIME THE FROG SAYS "PICK ME UP AND KISS
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:48.110
  • ME AND I'LL BECOME A BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS."
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:51.010
  • AND HE REACHED DOWN AND HE PICKED UP THE FROG LOOKED
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:54.040
  • AT IT FOR A MOMENT AND TUCKED IT IN HIS
  • 00:02:54.070 --> 00:02:55.180
  • POCKET AND KEPT WALKING.
  • 00:02:55.210 --> 00:02:57.070
  • THE FROG SAID, "DIDN'T YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID?
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:59.030
  • I SAID KISS ME AND I'LL BECOME A BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS."
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:02.070
  • HE SAID, "AT MY AGE, I'D RATHER HAVE A TALKING FROG."
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:06.050
  • [laughter]
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:08.290
  • BUT THE POINT IS TALK ABOUT MISSING
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:10.250
  • THE POINT RIGHT! SO THAT IS HOW IT CAN BE.
  • 00:03:10.280 --> 00:03:14.120
  • SO WE DON'T WANT TO MISS THE POINT.
  • 00:03:14.150 --> 00:03:16.080
  • IT'S INTERESTING TO TALK ABOUT THESE THINGS LIKE
  • 00:03:16.110 --> 00:03:18.160
  • DON AND I JUST DID BUT HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:21.000
  • JESUS GIVES US THE ANSWER IN LUKE 12.
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:24.180
  • THIS IS OUR LORD TELLING US HOW WE ARE TO LIVE IN
  • 00:03:24.210 --> 00:03:27.150
  • LIGHT OF HIS IMMINENT RETURN.
  • 00:03:27.180 --> 00:03:29.290
  • THE SON OF MAN IS A REFERENCE OF CHRIST TO HIMSELF.
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:18.110
  • SO WE'LL STOP THERE.
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:19.170
  • NOW WE ARE TALKING ABOUT FIRST CENTURY JEWISH WEDDINGS.
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:23.040
  • THEY WERE WAY DIFFERENT THAN OUR WEDDINGS TODAY.
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:25.220
  • IT WAS SORT OF AN EVENT.
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:27.100
  • IT WAS AN EXTENDED TIME OF CELEBRATION AND FUN SO
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:31.150
  • EVERYBODY WOULD BE THERE. EVERYBODY WOULD BE READY.
  • 00:04:31.180 --> 00:04:34.010
  • THEY WOULD HAVE A GREAT FEAST.
  • 00:04:34.040 --> 00:04:35.050
  • BUT HERE WAS THE TWIST: YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHEN
  • 00:04:35.080 --> 00:04:37.080
  • THE GROOM WAS COMING.
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:38.140
  • SO HE MIGHT COME IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:40.080
  • HE MIGHT COME IN THE AFTERNOON.
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:41.100
  • HE MIGHT COME IN THE EVENING.
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:42.220
  • AN ANNOUNCEMENT WOULD BE GIVEN "THE BRIDEGROOM IS
  • 00:04:42.250 --> 00:04:45.130
  • COMING" AND IF YOU WEREN'T READY YOU WOULD MISS IT.
  • 00:04:45.160 --> 00:04:48.120
  • SNOOZE AND YOU LOSE.
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:50.200
  • SO THIS IS THE PICTURE JESUS IS DRAWING UPON.
  • 00:04:50.230 --> 00:04:54.290
  • HE'S LIKE THAT GROOM AND HE'S GOING TO COME
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:58.200
  • AND WE DON'T KNOW WHEN IT'S GOING TO BE.
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:00.170
  • IT MIGHT BE IN THE MORNING WHEN THAT MORNING FINALLY COMES.
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:03.270
  • IT MIGHT BE IN THE AFTERNOON.
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:05.220
  • IT MIGHT BE IN THE EVENING.
  • 00:05:05.250 --> 00:05:07.030
  • IT MIGHT BE IN OUR LIFETIME, IT MIGHT NOT BE,
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:09.170
  • BUT WE WANT TO BE READY.
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:10.270
  • SO HERE IS POINT NUMBER ONE WHAT SHOULD WE BE
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:13.110
  • DOING BEFORE THE END OF THE WORLD?
  • 00:05:13.140 --> 00:05:15.100
  • 1. WE SHOULD BE SHINING LIGHTS IN A DARK PLACE.
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:22.150
  • VERSE 35. "BE DRESSED FOR SERVICE AND
  • 00:05:22.180 --> 00:05:25.080
  • KEEP YOUR LAMPS BURNING."
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:27.100
  • I BROUGHT PROPS TONIGHT. OKAY.
  • 00:05:27.130 --> 00:05:29.240
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS?
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:31.020
  • A FLASHLIGHT. GIVE ME YOUR ID RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:34.140
  • NO. OKAY. SO THIS IS A FLASHLIGHT
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:37.220
  • AND YOU WANT TO KEEP IT
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:39.220
  • CHARGED OR YOU WANT TO KEEP BATTERIES IN IT.
  • 00:05:39.250 --> 00:05:42.050
  • LET ME SHOW YOU A FLASHLIGHT OF THE FIRST CENTURY.
  • 00:05:42.080 --> 00:05:46.220
  • THIS IS A REAL ARTIFACT.
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:49.020
  • THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION.
  • 00:05:49.050 --> 00:05:50.150
  • I GOT IT IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:51.240
  • THIS IS THE FIRST CENTURY FLASHLIGHT.
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:54.030
  • GO IN FOR A TIGHT SHOT. CAN YOU SEE THAT?
  • 00:05:54.060 --> 00:05:56.000
  • YOU KNOW WHEN YOU READ IN THE BIBLE THAT HIS WORD
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:58.030
  • IS A LIGHT INTO YOUR PATH,"
  • 00:05:58.060 --> 00:05:59.230
  • THIS IS WHAT WAS BEING REFERRED TO.
  • 00:05:59.260 --> 00:06:01.220
  • THEY WOULD FILL THIS WITH OIL.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:03.250
  • I NEED SOMEONE TO HOLD THIS.
  • 00:06:03.280 --> 00:06:05.070
  • ALLIE, CAN YOU COME OVER HERE AND HOLD THIS FOR ME?
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:07.080
  • DON'T DROP IT NOW. HOLD IT VERY CAREFULLY.
  • 00:06:07.110 --> 00:06:09.120
  • BOTH HANDS. OKAY. SO HOLD THAT.
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:11.080
  • NOW THIS IS ALSO FIRST CENTURY,
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:13.280
  • BACK IN THE TIME OF CHRIST.
  • 00:06:14.010 --> 00:06:16.180
  • THIS IS WHERE THEY WOULD KEEP THE OIL.
  • 00:06:16.210 --> 00:06:18.060
  • SO YOU TAKE THE OIL IN THIS LITTLE FLASK AND
  • 00:06:18.090 --> 00:06:20.050
  • YOU'D KEEP THIS ATTACHED TO YOUR BELT AND YOU WOULD
  • 00:06:20.080 --> 00:06:22.110
  • POUR YOUR OIL IN HERE AND
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:24.180
  • THEN YOU WOULD HAVE A FLOATING WICK AND WITH
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:27.080
  • THAT FLOATING WICK YOU WOULD WALK AROUND LIKE
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:29.160
  • THIS AND IT WOULD LIGHT YOUR WAY ON THE PATH.
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:32.230
  • FIRST CENTURY FLASHLIGHT.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:33.270
  • THANK YOU. VERY GOOD.
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:36.190
  • [laughter]
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:39.090
  • SO THE IDEA OF IT IS WHEN WE READ IN THE
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:41.110
  • BIBLE "KEEP OIL IN YOUR LAMP" IT'S LIKE SAYING
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:44.070
  • KEEP BATTERIES IN YOUR FLASHLIGHT OR KEEP
  • 00:06:44.100 --> 00:06:47.050
  • YOUR CELL PHONE CHARGED.
  • 00:06:47.080 --> 00:06:48.150
  • IT JUST SIMPLY MEANS THIS.
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:49.270
  • IT MEANS...
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:51.130
  • WHO WANTS ONE OF THESE ARTIFACTS?
  • 00:06:51.160 --> 00:06:53.020
  • RAISE YOUR HAND.
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.020
  • I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:54.050 --> 00:06:55.000
  • OKA HERE YOU GO. FLASHLIGHT.
  • 00:06:55.030 --> 00:06:56.220
  • [laughter]
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.210
  • ENJOY THAT.
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:06:59.180
  • ACTUALLY I THINK THAT'S JONATHAN'S.
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.150
  • HE MAY WANT IT BACK.
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:02.260
  • YOU CAN HAVE IT. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:07.120
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:08.110
  • SO WHEN WE READ "KEEP OIL IN YOUR LAMP"
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:11.020
  • IN THE BIBLE WHAT'S THAT ALL ABOUT?
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:12.260
  • THAT'S ALL THAT IS.
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:14.030
  • IT'S JUST SIMPLY BEING READY TO GO AND SO HAVE
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:17.200
  • YOUR LAMPS BURNING.
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:19.100
  • BE READY FOR THE RETURN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:21.120
  • AND DOESN'T THE BIBLE TELL US TO LET OUR LIGHT SO
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:24.090
  • SHINE BEFORE MEN THAT PEOPLE CAN SEE OUR GOOD
  • 00:07:24.120 --> 00:07:27.150
  • WORKS AND GLORIFY OUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:07:27.180 --> 00:07:30.260
  • SO YOU WANT TO BE LIVING IN A WAY THAT BRINGS
  • 00:07:30.290 --> 00:07:33.110
  • HONOR AND GLORY TO GOD.
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:35.030
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES I FEEL AS CHRISTIANS WE ARE MORE
  • 00:07:35.060 --> 00:07:36.290
  • KNOWN FOR WHAT WE'RE AGAINST THAN WHAT WE'RE FOR.
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:40.080
  • LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO SHOW THE LOVE
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:42.250
  • OF JESUS TO PEOPLE. SIMPLE THINGS.
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:45.240
  • OPEN THE DOOR FOR SOMEBODY.
  • 00:07:45.270 --> 00:07:47.060
  • SAY SOMETHING NICE TO SOMEBODY.
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:49.260
  • THROW OUT A COMPLIMENT.
  • 00:07:49.290 --> 00:07:51.220
  • DO SOMETHING KIND, BUT DO IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:07:51.250 --> 00:07:55.200
  • SAY GOD BLESS YOU AND THEY'LL SEE THAT
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:58.170
  • YOU'RE A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST.
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:08:00.090
  • SOMETIMES THOSE CAN PROMPT AND OPEN DOORS
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:02.110
  • FOR CONVERSATION.
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:03.170
  • SO WE'RE TO BE BRIGHT LIGHTS IN A DARK PLACE.
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:05.260
  • 2. WE ARE TO BE WATCHING FOR HIM. LOOK AT VERSE 37.
  • 00:08:05.290 --> 00:08:10.190
  • "BLESSED ARE THOSE SERVANTS WHOM THE MASTER
  • 00:08:10.220 --> 00:08:12.180
  • WHEN HE COMES WILL FIND WATCHING," SO WHEN WE SEE
  • 00:08:12.210 --> 00:08:16.130
  • THE THINGS HAPPENING IN OUR WORLD AS WE DO NOW,
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:18.220
  • LITERALLY BIBLE PROPHECIES BEING FULFILLED BEFORE
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:21.200
  • OUR VERY EYES, WE SHOULD BE LOOKING UP.
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:25.130
  • WE CAN HAVE THE BIBLE IN ONE HAND AND A NEWSPAPER
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:27.270
  • OR NEWS FEED ON OUR PHONE IN THE OTHER.
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:31.220
  • AND JESUS SAID "WHEN YOU SEE THESE THINGS BEGIN TO
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:34.020
  • HAPPEN LOOK UP FOR YOUR REDEMPTION IS DRAWING NEAR."
  • 00:08:34.050 --> 00:08:37.240
  • 3. YOU NEED TO BE READY TO GO.
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:41.100
  • WHEN I GO ON A TRIP I PACK.
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:43.040
  • I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I AM THE WORST PACKER.
  • 00:08:43.070 --> 00:08:45.230
  • I JUST PACK TOO MUCH STUFF.
  • 00:08:45.260 --> 00:08:47.260
  • IT'S RIDICULOUS WHEN I SHOW UP WITH MORE LUGGAGE
  • 00:08:47.290 --> 00:08:50.290
  • THAN MY WIFE AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT IN A CRITICAL
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:54.150
  • WAY OF GIRLS, BUT GENERALLY GIRLS MAYBE
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:57.030
  • SOMETIMES TAKE MORE STUFF THAN GUYS.
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:59.010
  • NOT IN OUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:00.050
  • I TAKE MORE STUFF BECAUSE I MAY NEED THIS.
  • 00:09:00.080 --> 00:09:03.000
  • I MAY NEED THAT. I NEED A CHARGER.
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:05.090
  • I'LL HAVE AN EXTRA CHARGER AND I HAVE THIS
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:07.140
  • OTHER THING AND THEN CATHE WILL SAY,
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:08.290
  • "WHY DO YOU TAKE ALL THAT STUFF?"
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:10.240
  • BUT THEN WHEN WE GET THERE, SHE FORGOT HER CHARGER.
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:13.040
  • "I FORGOT MY PHONE CHARGER."
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:14.170
  • OH LOOK. I HAVE ANOTHER ONE.
  • 00:09:14.200 --> 00:09:16.200
  • AREN'T YOU GLAD I'M A LITTLE PACKRAT NOW RIGHT?
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:20.030
  • BUT I GET EVERYTHING PACKED BEFORE I GO THEN
  • 00:09:20.060 --> 00:09:24.020
  • YOU LOAD IT UP AND YOU GO DOWN TO THE AIRPORT
  • 00:09:24.050 --> 00:09:25.280
  • AND YOU GET ON YOUR FLIGHT OR HOWEVER
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:28.150
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE TRAVELING.
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:29.230
  • SO THE IDEA IS BE READY TO GO IN A MOMENT'S NOTICE.
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:32.260
  • HAVE YOUR BAGS PACKED AND HAVE YOUR COMFORTABLE SHOES ON.
  • 00:09:32.290 --> 00:09:36.070
  • YOU WHEN I TRAVEL I WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES BECAUSE
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:39.170
  • SOMETIMES THEY CHANGE TERMINALS AND NOW YOU HAVE
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:43.000
  • TO RUSH AND YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS LIKE,
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:44.230
  • YOU GUYS THAT TRAVEL.
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:45.250
  • IF YOU HAVE A ROLLER BAG YOU'RE RUNNING ALONG,
  • 00:09:45.280 --> 00:09:47.110
  • YOU KNOW. I NEED COMFORTABLE SHOES.
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:49.010
  • SO THE IDEA IS BE READY TO GO AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:52.040
  • BECAUSE THE LORD COULD COME BACK AT ANY TIME.
  • 00:09:52.070 --> 00:09:54.180
  • SO ARE YOU READY?
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:56.240
  • HERE'S SOMETHING TO CONSIDER.
  • 00:09:56.270 --> 00:09:58.150
  • ASK YOURSELF A QUESTION ABOUT THINGS THAT YOU DO.
  • 00:09:58.180 --> 00:10:01.070
  • THIS PLACE I AM ABOUT TO GO, THIS THING I'M READY
  • 00:10:01.100 --> 00:10:05.070
  • TO DO, WOULD I BE ASHAMED OF THIS OR BE EMBARRASSED
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:10.010
  • DOING THIS IF CHRIST WERE TO COME BACK
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:14.030
  • WHILE I WAS DOING IT?
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:15.180
  • IF THE ANSWER IS YES, I THINK YOU SHOULD
  • 00:10:15.210 --> 00:10:17.080
  • RECONSIDER THAT THING.
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:19.040
  • I ALREADY QUOTED 2 PETER 3:9 IN ANOTHER MESSAGE ON
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:23.150
  • WHY THE LORD HAS NOT COME BACK YET BECAUSE IT SAYS
  • 00:10:23.180 --> 00:10:26.160
  • GOD IS NOT SLOW IN KEEPING HIS PROMISES
  • 00:10:26.190 --> 00:10:28.260
  • AS SOME MEN COUNT SLOWNESS.
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:30.270
  • HE'S LONG-SUFFERING TOWARD US, NOT WILLING THAT ANY
  • 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:33.120
  • SHOULD PERISH BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:36.040
  • SO THE REASON THE LORD IS WAITING IS HE IS WAITING
  • 00:10:36.070 --> 00:10:38.270
  • FOR THAT PERSON TO BELIEVE, THAT LAST PERSON
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:42.160
  • BEFORE WE'RE CAUGHT UP TO MEET HIM.
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:44.140
  • BUT THEN THOSE VERSES IN 2 PETER GO ON AND SAY
  • 00:10:44.170 --> 00:10:47.090
  • THE DAY WILL COME LIKE A THIEF.
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:48.260
  • THE HEAVENS WILL DISAPPEAR.
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:50.220
  • THE ELEMENTS WILL BE DESTROYED BY FIRE.
  • 00:10:50.250 --> 00:10:52.240
  • LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:10:52.270 --> 00:10:53.240
  • WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE THEN SHOULD YOU BE?
  • 00:10:53.270 --> 00:10:56.090
  • YOU OUGHT TO LIVE HOLY AND GODLY LIVES.
  • 00:10:56.120 --> 00:10:59.010
  • LOOK FORWARD TO THIS AND MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO BE
  • 00:10:59.040 --> 00:11:01.260
  • FOUND SPOTLESS AND BLAMELESS AND AT PEACE WITH HIM.
  • 00:11:01.290 --> 00:11:06.080
  • SO IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE THESE THINGS, IT SHOULD
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:09.090
  • AFFECT YOU IN THE WAY THAT YOU LIVE.
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:11.000
  • 4. WE SHOULD NOT ONLY BE READY BUT WE SHOULD BE
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:14.250
  • ANXIOUSLY AWAITING HIS RETURN LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:18.100
  • LOOK AT VERSE 36.
  • 00:11:18.130 --> 00:11:19.290
  • "BE LIKE MEN WHO WAIT FOR THEIR MASTER WHEN HE WILL
  • 00:11:20.020 --> 00:11:23.020
  • RETURN FROM THE WEDDING AND COMES AND KNOCKS SO
  • 00:11:23.050 --> 00:11:25.290
  • OPEN TO HIM IMMEDIATELY."
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.170
  • YEARS AGO I USED TO HAVE A DOG.
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:28.250
  • REMEMBER CATHE, PALM THE DOG?
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:30.260
  • HE CAME PRE-NAMED PALM. WHO NAMES A DOG PALM?
  • 00:11:30.290 --> 00:11:33.240
  • WE HAD A DOG NAMED PALM, AND HE WAS A GERMAN
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:36.280
  • SHEPHERD BUT I THINK HE THOUGHT HE WAS DEER.
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:40.050
  • HE SORT OF MOVED AROUND LIKE A DEER.
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:41.170
  • HE WAS A VERY INTERESTING DOG BUT A GOOD DOG AND HE
  • 00:11:41.200 --> 00:11:44.130
  • WOULD LEAN AGAINST OUR DOOR AT NIGHT OF OUR BEDROOM.
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:49.190
  • SOMETIMES HE WOULD LIKE SCRATCH AS DOGS DO AND IT
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:52.190
  • WOULD SOUND LIKE SOMEONE WAS AT THE DOOR.
  • 00:11:52.220 --> 00:11:54.050
  • [thumping]
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:55.070
  • WHAT?! AND OPEN IT UP AND THE DOG FALLS IN.
  • 00:11:55.100 --> 00:11:57.140
  • SO HE WOULD JUST WAIT AGAINST THE DOOR.
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:11:59.150
  • WAITING FOR US TO GET UP AND WHEN I OPEN THAT DOOR
  • 00:11:59.180 --> 00:12:02.130
  • IN THE MORNING HE WAS SO EXCITING RUNNING AROUND
  • 00:12:02.160 --> 00:12:04.080
  • IN CIRCLES YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:04.110 --> 00:12:05.100
  • "HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN"
  • 00:12:05.130 --> 00:12:07.080
  • BECAUSE HE WANTED TO GO ON A WALK
  • 00:12:07.110 --> 00:12:08.240
  • AND ALL THE THINGS DOGS LIKE TO DO.
  • 00:12:08.270 --> 00:12:10.200
  • SO I THOUGHT THAT'S A PICTURE OF HOW
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:12.250
  • WE OUGHT TO BE.
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:13.230
  • WE SHOULD JUST BE UP AGAINST THE DOOR
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.030
  • LIKE LORD, COME.
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:16.110
  • LIKE LET'S JUST SAY SOMEONE YOU REALLY LOVED
  • 00:12:16.140 --> 00:12:18.290
  • WAS COMING TO VISIT YOU AND YOU HADN'T SEEN THEM
  • 00:12:19.020 --> 00:12:20.260
  • FOR A YEAR SO THEY TEXT YOU, "THE PLANE JUST LANDED."
  • 00:12:20.290 --> 00:12:24.140
  • OKAY WE'RE IN THE UBER. WE'RE ON OUR WAY OVER.
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:27.120
  • OKAY WE'RE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:29.020
  • OKAY WE'RE ONE BLOCK AWAY.
  • 00:12:29.050 --> 00:12:30.180
  • WE'RE ALMOST AT YOUR HOUSE.
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:31.290
  • YOU'RE LIKE YES, YES, YES, AND THEN YOU SEE THE CAR
  • 00:12:32.020 --> 00:12:33.130
  • PULL UP AND YOU HAVE YOUR HAND ON THE DOOR AND YOU
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:36.060
  • CAN'T EVEN WAIT FOR THEM TO COME UP THE STEPS.
  • 00:12:36.090 --> 00:12:38.230
  • THAT'S HOW WE NEED TO BE WAITING FOR JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:12:38.260 --> 00:12:42.040
  • LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. ANTICIPATING IT.
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:45.000
  • ANTICIPATING IT AND HOPING FOR IT.
  • 00:12:45.030 --> 00:12:48.010
  • WE SHOULD NOT ONLY BE ANXIOUSLY WAITING, WE
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:51.010
  • SHOULD ALSO BE WORKING.
  • 00:12:51.040 --> 00:12:53.000
  • LOOK AT VERSE 43, "BLESSED IS THAT SERVANT WHOM
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:56.030
  • HIS MASTER WILL FIND SO DOING WHEN HE COMES."
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:13:00.130
  • SO DOING. THE BIBLE SAYS FAITH WITHOUT WORKS ARE DEAD.
  • 00:13:00.160 --> 00:13:05.210
  • FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD.
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:07.210
  • SO IF WATCHING FOR THE LORD'S RETURN WILL HELP
  • 00:13:07.240 --> 00:13:10.180
  • US PREPARE OUR OWN LIVES, WORKING WILL ASSURE
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:13.130
  • WE BRING OTHERS WITH US, AND NOTICE THE WORD
  • 00:13:13.160 --> 00:13:17.010
  • BLESSED IS USED.
  • 00:13:17.040 --> 00:13:18.160
  • "BLESSED IS THE SERVANT WHOM THE MASTER
  • 00:13:18.190 --> 00:13:21.040
  • WILL FIND SO DOING." AS YOU KNOW,
  • 00:13:21.070 --> 00:13:23.070
  • THE WORD BLESSED CAN ALSO BE TRANSLATED HAPPY.
  • 00:13:23.100 --> 00:13:26.090
  • HAPPY IS THE SERVANT, HAPPY IS THE MAN,
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:28.180
  • HAPPY IS THE WOMAN WHO IS ANXIOUSLY AWAITING
  • 00:13:28.210 --> 00:13:31.280
  • THEIR LORD'S RETURN AND IS SERVING HIM.
  • 00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:35.090
  • REMEMBER I MENTIONED IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION
  • 00:13:35.120 --> 00:13:38.160
  • THERE'S A BLESSING PROMISED TO THE PERSON
  • 00:13:38.190 --> 00:13:41.250
  • WHO READS AND HEARS AND KEEPS THE WORDS OF REVELATION.
  • 00:13:41.280 --> 00:13:48.150
  • "BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO READS AND HEARS AND
  • 00:13:48.180 --> 00:13:50.120
  • KEEPS THE WORDS OF THIS BOOK."
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:52.120
  • AND I THINK WHAT'S TRUE OF REVELATION IS TRUE
  • 00:13:52.150 --> 00:13:54.130
  • OF SCRIPTURE IN GENERAL BUT IS ESPECIALLY TRUE
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:57.060
  • OF BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT END TIMES EVENTS.
  • 00:13:57.090 --> 00:14:00.120
  • BLESSED IS A PERSON WHO READS IT.
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:02.120
  • BUT THEN WHO UNDERSTANDS IT AND THEN WHO LIVES IT.
  • 00:14:02.150 --> 00:14:06.220
  • SO THERE'S A BLESSEDNESS OR A HAPPINESS.
  • 00:14:06.250 --> 00:14:09.160
  • IT'S NOT A SAD THING TO BE WAITING FOR THE LORD'S RETURN.
  • 00:14:09.190 --> 00:14:13.040
  • IT'S A HAPPY THING.
  • 00:14:13.070 --> 00:14:15.060
  • SO LETS SHIFT GEARS AND CLOSE.
  • 00:14:15.090 --> 00:14:16.230
  • IN CONTRAST TO THE BELIEVER WHO IS WATCHING
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:18.260
  • AND WORKING, NOW WE HAVE THE UNPREPARED SERVANTS.
  • 00:14:18.290 --> 00:14:23.020
  • GO BACK TO LUKE 12:45.
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:25.130
  • SO THIS IS A PICTURE OF A PERSON WHO WOULD APPEAR
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:43.270
  • TO BE A BELIEVER BUT IN REALITY THEY ARE NOT.
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:48.140
  • WHY DO I SAY THAT? IT'S THAT SERVANT.
  • 00:14:48.170 --> 00:14:51.010
  • SO THEY LOOK LIKE ONE OF US JESUS TOLD THE STORY
  • 00:14:51.040 --> 00:14:53.160
  • OF THE 10 BRIDESMAIDS.
  • 00:14:53.190 --> 00:14:55.200
  • REMEMBER FIVE WERE WISE. FIVE WERE FOOLISH.
  • 00:14:55.230 --> 00:14:58.040
  • IN THE KING JAMES THEY ARE CALLED THE 10 VIRGINS.
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:15:00.140
  • THE ONES THAT WERE WISE HAD OIL IN THEIR LAMPS -
  • 00:15:00.170 --> 00:15:03.070
  • BACK TO THE LAMP - AND THE ONES THAT WERE NOT READY
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:06.120
  • DID NOT HAVE OIL IN THEIR LAMPS.
  • 00:15:06.150 --> 00:15:08.060
  • SO THE IDEA IS IN THE LAST DAYS, ACCORDING TO
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:11.030
  • SCRIPTURE, THERE'S GOING TO BE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:13.130
  • CHRISTIAN'S RIGHT NEXT TO PEOPLE THAT AREN'T CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:15:13.160 --> 00:15:16.040
  • THE PEOPLE THAT AREN'T CHRISTIANS WILL INITIALLY
  • 00:15:16.070 --> 00:15:18.110
  • APPEAR AS THOUGH THEY ARE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:20.160
  • SO WE HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL.
  • 00:15:20.190 --> 00:15:22.190
  • JUST HEARING THESE THINGS IS NOT ENOUGH.
  • 00:15:22.220 --> 00:15:25.020
  • WE NEED TO ACT ON THESE THINGS AS WELL.
  • 00:15:25.050 --> 00:15:28.010
  • GOING TO CHURCH, HEARING THE WORD OF GOD, SINGING
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:32.140
  • THESE WONDERFUL SONGS OF WORSHIP, IT'S A GREAT THING
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:35.220
  • TO DO IF YOU REALLY HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:15:35.250 --> 00:15:38.260
  • BUT IF YOU DO THESE THINGS AND HAVE NO INTENTION OF
  • 00:15:38.290 --> 00:15:42.040
  • FOLLOWING THE LORD OR YOU ARE KIND OF PRETENDING
  • 00:15:42.070 --> 00:15:44.200
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN YOU'RE ACTUALLY IN
  • 00:15:44.230 --> 00:15:46.190
  • DANGER OF HARDENING YOUR HEART.
  • 00:15:46.220 --> 00:15:48.280
  • YOU WANT TO KNOW THE EASIEST PLACE TO GET A HARD HEART?
  • 00:15:49.010 --> 00:15:52.060
  • "YEAH, A STRIP CLUB. A BAR."
  • 00:15:52.090 --> 00:15:54.130
  • YEAH YOU COULD GET A HARD HEART THERE, BUT THE
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:56.270
  • EASIEST PLACE TO GET A HARD HEART IS RIGHT
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:59.140
  • WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:01.030
  • YOU SAY I AM NOT GETTING THIS AT ALL.
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:02.250
  • I THOUGHT CHURCH WAS THE BEST PLACE TO BE.
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.150
  • IT'S THE BEST PLACE TO BE IF YOU WANT TO WALK WITH GOD.
  • 00:16:04.180 --> 00:16:07.160
  • BUT THE SAME SUN THAT SOFTENS THE WAX HARDENS THE CLAY.
  • 00:16:07.190 --> 00:16:12.040
  • THE SAME MESSAGE THAT WILL SET ONE PERSON FREE CAN BE
  • 00:16:12.070 --> 00:16:15.160
  • IGNORED BY ANOTHER AND THEY WILL ACTUALLY FIND
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:18.010
  • THEIR HEART GETTING HARDER.
  • 00:16:18.040 --> 00:16:20.020
  • DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN TO YOU.
  • 00:16:20.050 --> 00:16:21.170
  • THE PHARAOH OF EGYPT SAW MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:24.180
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS HE HARDENED HIS HEART.
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:29.060
  • SO YOU CAN HEAR THESE THINGS AND SAY THAT IS STUPID.
  • 00:16:29.090 --> 00:16:31.170
  • I DON'T REALLY BELIEVE IT BUT YOU KNOW I'M HERE ANYWAY.
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:34.090
  • BE CAREFUL BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO BE LIKE
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:36.040
  • THIS PERSON THAT IS NOT PREPARED.
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:38.270
  • NOTICE WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT THIS WICKED SERVANT VERSE 45.
  • 00:16:39.000 --> 00:16:42.110
  • THAT SERVANT SAYS, "MY MASTER WON'T BE BACK FOR
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:44.290
  • A WHILE, AND BEGINS BEATING THE OTHER SERVANTS,
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:46.260
  • PARTYING AND GETTING DRUNK."
  • 00:16:46.290 --> 00:16:49.260
  • YOU KNOW I'VE COME TO AN AMAZING DISCOVERY.
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:52.240
  • IF I DON'T DRINK I WON'T GET DRUNK. GO FIGURE.
  • 00:16:52.270 --> 00:16:58.100
  • I'VE NEVER MET A DRUNK PERSON THAT DIDN'T DRINK.
  • 00:16:58.130 --> 00:17:02.030
  • SO IF I DON'T DRINK I WON'T GET DRUNK.
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:04.250
  • I REMEMBER ONCE I WAS PULLED OVER FOR A DUI.
  • 00:17:04.280 --> 00:17:08.160
  • LET ME EXPLAIN.
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:09.290
  • IT WAS ACTUALLY NEW YEAR'S EVE.
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:12.160
  • I WAS DRIVING BACK FROM A SERVICE WE HAD DONE AT CHURCH.
  • 00:17:12.190 --> 00:17:15.210
  • IT WAS NIGHTTIME AND I GOT PULLED OVER BY A COP.
  • 00:17:15.240 --> 00:17:19.120
  • SO I THOUGHT, WHY IS HE PULLING ME OVER?
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:22.240
  • HE SAYS, AND HE HAS THE LOUDSPEAKERS AND SAYS,
  • 00:17:22.270 --> 00:17:25.020
  • "KEEP YOUR HANDS ON THE STEERING WHEEL."
  • 00:17:25.050 --> 00:17:27.010
  • I HAVE MY HANDS ON THE WHEEL.
  • 00:17:27.040 --> 00:17:28.170
  • HE COMES AROUND WITH THE FLASHLIGHT AND THEY SHINE
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:30.110
  • THE FLASHLIGHT RIGHT IN YOUR EYES AND THAT'S
  • 00:17:30.140 --> 00:17:32.290
  • JUST REALLY IRRITATING. IT MAKES YOU VERY NERVOUS.
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:35.030
  • HE SAYS, "GET OUT OF THE CAR."
  • 00:17:35.060 --> 00:17:36.120
  • I GET OUT OF THE CAR AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:38.230
  • "WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING?"
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:40.040
  • I SAID "A BOTTLED WATER, OFFICER."
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:43.030
  • HE GOES, UH-HUH AND HE PULLS OUT A PENCIL AND
  • 00:17:43.060 --> 00:17:46.000
  • HE SAYS, "FOLLOW THIS WITH YOUR EYES."
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:48.080
  • HE IS GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH THE PENCIL AND
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:50.060
  • HE SAYS, "NOW I WANT YOU TO WALK A STRAIGHT LINE."
  • 00:17:50.090 --> 00:17:52.160
  • I AM THINKING I CAN'T BELIEVE
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:53.170
  • THIS IS HAPPENING TO ME.
  • 00:17:53.200 --> 00:17:55.010
  • SOMEONE IS GOING TO DRIVE BY AND SAY,
  • 00:17:55.040 --> 00:17:56.150
  • "ISN'T THAT PASTOR GREG THERE?"
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:58.040
  • [laughter]
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:18:00.070
  • I HAD NOT BEEN DRINKING ANYTHING.
  • 00:18:00.100 --> 00:18:03.110
  • I DON'T DRINK, BUT I WAS SO NERVOUS IT WAS HARD.
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:06.140
  • THE LINE WAS HARD. I'M LIKE AY.
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:08.250
  • YOU KNOW, I DID IT. HE FINALLY LET ME GO.
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:12.260
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY HE PULLED ME OVER IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:14.230
  • IT WAS CRAZY.
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:15.240
  • BUT YOU KNOW, THE SAD THING IS THERE ARE
  • 00:18:15.270 --> 00:18:17.290
  • PEOPLE DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE.
  • 00:18:18.020 --> 00:18:20.120
  • FAR TOO OFTEN WE HEAR THE STORY OF
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:22.150
  • THE FAMILY KILLED BY THE DRUNK DRIVER.
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:25.100
  • THEY ALL DIE AND THE DRUNK SURVIVES IT.
  • 00:18:25.130 --> 00:18:27.290
  • THEY ARE SO LIQUORED UP THEY'RE JUST LIKE WHATEVER.
  • 00:18:28.020 --> 00:18:31.160
  • IT IS HORRIBLE.
  • 00:18:31.190 --> 00:18:33.140
  • I'VE SEEN ALCOHOL DESTROY SO MANY LIVES.
  • 00:18:33.170 --> 00:18:37.000
  • IT IS KIND OF PERSONAL FOR ME, AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:39.250
  • I WAS RAISED IN AN ALCOHOLIC HOME AND I SAW
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:44.000
  • WHAT IT DID TO MY MOM, AND I SAW WHAT IT DID TO HER
  • 00:18:44.030 --> 00:18:46.220
  • MARRIAGES, AND I SAW ALL THE DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:49.030
  • YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T NEED TO BE FILLED WITH THE
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:51.140
  • SPIRITS; YOU NEED TO BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:51.170 --> 00:18:54.230
  • THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:18:54.260 --> 00:18:56.060
  • IT IS FAR BETTER.
  • 00:18:56.090 --> 00:18:57.190
  • [applause]
  • 00:18:57.220 --> 00:19:00.070
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "DON'T BE DRUNK WITH WINE
  • 00:19:00.100 --> 00:19:01.290
  • BECAUSE THAT WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE; BUT INSTEAD
  • 00:19:02.020 --> 00:19:05.020
  • LET THE HOLY SPIRIT FILL AND CONTROL YOU."
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:07.280
  • SO IN CONCLUSION JESUS IS COMING
  • 00:19:08.010 --> 00:19:11.050
  • SO WE NEED TO BE READY. HOW?
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:13.160
  • 1. BE A SHINING LIGHT IN A DARK PLACE.
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:16.240
  • 2. BE WATCHING FOR HIM.
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:18.150
  • 3. BE READY TO GO.
  • 00:19:18.180 --> 00:19:20.260
  • 4. NOT ONLY BE READY, BE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING HIS RETURN.
  • 00:19:20.290 --> 00:19:25.090
  • 5. DON'T JUST BE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING,
  • 00:19:25.120 --> 00:19:29.150
  • BUT ALSO BE WORKING.
  • 00:19:29.180 --> 00:19:31.110
  • COMING BACK TO THAT VERSE I QUOTED IN 2 PETER 3.
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:35.080
  • "MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO BE FOUND SPOTLESS AND
  • 00:19:35.110 --> 00:19:37.290
  • BLAMELESS AND AT PEACE WITH HIM."
  • 00:19:38.020 --> 00:19:40.090
  • LET ME ASK YOU, ARE YOU READY FOR THE LORD'S RETURN?
  • 00:19:40.120 --> 00:19:43.060
  • YOU MIGHT SAY, "DOES THAT MEAN
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:44.210
  • I HAVE TO LIVE A PERFECT LIFE?"
  • 00:19:44.240 --> 00:19:46.000
  • NO BECAUSE NO ONE DOES.
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:47.110
  • WE ALL SIN, BUT WE NEED TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD.
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:51.020
  • THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE THE PEACE OF GOD IN OUR LIFE
  • 00:19:51.050 --> 00:19:55.290
  • IS TO FIRST HAVE PEACE WITH GOD.
  • 00:19:56.020 --> 00:19:58.080
  • BELIEVE IT OR NOT BEFORE YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN YOU'RE
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:20:00.240
  • ACTUALLY AT WAR WITH GOD.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:02.190
  • YOU'RE FIGHTING WITH GOD.
  • 00:20:02.220 --> 00:20:05.130
  • YOU'RE SEPARATED FROM GOD BY YOUR SIN.
  • 00:20:05.160 --> 00:20:08.170
  • BUT GOD LOVED YOU SO MUCH, DESPITE YOUR REBELLION,
  • 00:20:08.200 --> 00:20:12.000
  • HE SENT HIS OWN SON JESUS TO DIE ON A CROSS IN
  • 00:20:12.030 --> 00:20:16.130
  • YOUR PLACE AND MY PLACE AND HE SUFFERED
  • 00:20:16.160 --> 00:20:18.180
  • THERE FOR MY SINS.
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:20.270
  • THEN HE ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD THREE DAYS LATER
  • 00:20:21.000 --> 00:20:23.140
  • AND HE'S ALIVE AND HE'S HERE WITH US AND HE STANDS
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:26.260
  • AT THE DOOR OF YOUR LIFE AND HE KNOCKS AND SAYS IF
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:29.140
  • YOU'LL HEAR HIS VOICE AND OPEN THE DOOR
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:31.170
  • HE WILL COME IN.
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:33.010
  • JESUS DIED. JESUS ROSE.
  • 00:20:33.040 --> 00:20:34.170
  • JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN.
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:36.260
  • AND I ASK YOU IN CLOSING, ARE YOU READY
  • 00:20:36.290 --> 00:20:39.080
  • FOR THE LORD'S RETURN?
  • 00:20:39.110 --> 00:20:40.290
  • IF YOU AREN'T, WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE?
  • 00:20:41.020 --> 00:20:42.270
  • WHEN THAT MORNING FINALLY COMES, EVERYONE WILL
  • 00:20:43.000 --> 00:20:45.150
  • BE THERE IF THEY'RE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:20:45.180 --> 00:20:47.260
  • BUT FOR OTHERS, YES IT'S TRUE, TWO MEN WALKING
  • 00:20:47.290 --> 00:20:51.050
  • UP A HILL ONE DISAPPEARS.
  • 00:20:51.080 --> 00:20:53.100
  • ONE LEFT STANDING STILL.
  • 00:20:53.130 --> 00:20:55.020
  • SOME WILL BE CAUGHT UP TO MEET THE LORD IF YOU'RE
  • 00:20:55.050 --> 00:20:57.100
  • ALIVE DURING THAT EVENT AND OTHERS WILL BE LEFT
  • 00:20:57.130 --> 00:20:59.240
  • TO FACE A HORRIBLE TIME COMING TO PLANET EARTH
  • 00:20:59.270 --> 00:21:03.040
  • CALLED THE GREAT TRIBULATION PERIOD
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:05.180
  • AND YOU DON'T WANT TO BE AROUND FOR THAT.
  • 00:21:05.210 --> 00:21:07.150
  • TRUST ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT.
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:09.000
  • SO YOU SAY, "HOW DO I GET RIGHT WITH GOD?"
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:11.020
  • YOU ADMIT YOU'RE A SINNER AND YOU REALIZE THAT
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:14.280
  • YOUR ONLY HOPE IS JESUS.
  • 00:21:15.010 --> 00:21:16.250
  • YOU NEED A SAVIOR. YOU CALL OUT.
  • 00:21:16.280 --> 00:21:18.270
  • IT'D JUST BE LIKE IF YOU'RE OUT IN THE WATER
  • 00:21:19.000 --> 00:21:20.290
  • AND YOU GOT CAUGHT IN A RIPTIDE AND YOU CAN'T
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:23.050
  • GET BACK TO THE SHORE, WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:25.070
  • YOU CALL OUT FOR HELP. THAT'S EMBARRASSING.
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:27.090
  • IT'S BETTER THAN DROWNING ISN'T IT?
  • 00:21:27.120 --> 00:21:29.110
  • SO CALL OUT AND HOPEFULLY THERE'S A LIFEGUARD ON
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:32.150
  • DUTY AND HE'LL COME AND RESCUE YOU SO IN THE SAME
  • 00:21:32.180 --> 00:21:36.060
  • WAY WE HAVE TO SEE OUR REAL CONDITION AND CALL
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:38.120
  • OUT TO GOD AND THE BIBLE SAYS WHOEVER WILL CALL
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:40.260
  • UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.
  • 00:21:40.290 --> 00:21:43.240
  • SO IN A MOMENT WE'RE GOING TO PRAY AND I'M GOING TO
  • 00:21:43.270 --> 00:21:45.260
  • GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO REACH OUT TO GOD.
  • 00:21:45.290 --> 00:21:48.130
  • MAYBE YOU ARE STRUGGLING WITH ALCOHOL.
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:51.200
  • MAYBE YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH DRUGS.
  • 00:21:51.230 --> 00:21:53.150
  • MAYBE IT'S NONE OF THOSE THINGS AT ALL BUT YOU'VE
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:56.010
  • CHASED AFTER EVERYTHING THIS WORLD SAYS WILL MAKE
  • 00:21:56.040 --> 00:21:59.040
  • YOU HAPPY AND YOU HAVE A LOT OF THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:21:59.070 --> 00:22:02.050
  • MAYBE YOU'VE EVEN SURPASSED YOUR
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:03.220
  • EXPECTATIONS BUT YOU'VE SEEN HOW EMPTY IT IS.
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:08.070
  • THAT'S BECAUSE YOU WERE MADE TO KNOW GOD AND
  • 00:22:08.100 --> 00:22:10.210
  • THERE'S A BIG HOLE IN YOUR HEART
  • 00:22:10.240 --> 00:22:12.180
  • THAT ONLY CHRIST CAN FILL.
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:14.060
  • DRUGS CAN'T FILL IT. BOOZE CAN'T FILL IT.
  • 00:22:14.090 --> 00:22:16.280
  • PARTIES CAN'T FILL IT. SEX CAN'T FILL IT.
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:19.150
  • MATERIAL THINGS CAN'T FILL IT.
  • 00:22:19.180 --> 00:22:21.260
  • EVEN RELIGION CAN'T FILL IT.
  • 00:22:21.290 --> 00:22:24.070
  • YOU DON'T NEED RELIGION.
  • 00:22:24.100 --> 00:22:25.220
  • YOU NEED A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND IT CAN
  • 00:22:25.250 --> 00:22:29.110
  • HAPPEN FOR YOU TONIGHT.
  • 00:22:29.140 --> 00:22:31.020
  • YOU CAN ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE JUST LIKE
  • 00:22:31.050 --> 00:22:33.170
  • I DID, JUST LIKE THESE FOLKS UP HERE DID.
  • 00:22:33.200 --> 00:22:35.290
  • IT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:22:36.020 --> 00:22:38.240
  • AND ONCE YOU DO THAT YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT
  • 00:22:38.270 --> 00:22:40.190
  • YOU'RE READY FOR THE LORD'S RETURN.
  • 00:22:40.220 --> 00:22:42.240
  • SO IN A MOMENT WE'RE GOING TO PRAY AND IF YOU NEED
  • 00:22:42.270 --> 00:22:45.050
  • JESUS IN YOUR LIFE TONIGHT, RESPOND TO THIS
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:48.100
  • INVITATION AND ALSO, IF YOU'RE SOMEONE THAT HAS
  • 00:22:48.130 --> 00:22:50.290
  • FALLEN AWAY FROM THE LORD AND MAYBE YOU NEED TO COME
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:53.220
  • BACK BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN SORT OF PLAYING A LITTLE
  • 00:22:53.250 --> 00:22:55.280
  • BIT OF A RELIGIOUS GAME.
  • 00:22:56.010 --> 00:22:57.160
  • YOU'RE NOT FOOLING GOD.
  • 00:22:57.190 --> 00:22:59.160
  • YOU CAN FOOL ALL OF THE PEOPLE SOME OF THE TIME,
  • 00:22:59.190 --> 00:23:03.220
  • YOU CAN FOOL SOME OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME,
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:06.170
  • BUT YOU CAN'T FOOL GOD ANY OF THE TIME.
  • 00:23:06.200 --> 00:23:09.240
  • DON'T PLAY THAT GAME ANYMORE.
  • 00:23:09.270 --> 00:23:11.280
  • YOU MAY NEED TO MAKE A RECOMMITMENT.
  • 00:23:12.010 --> 00:23:14.030
  • YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:23:14.060 --> 00:23:15.180
  • WHY DON'T WE ALL BOW OUR HEADS AND PRAY.
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:17.180
  • EVERYBODY PRAYING.
  • 00:23:17.210 --> 00:23:18.230
  • FATHER, I PRAY THAT YOUR HOLY SPIRIT WILL SPEAK NOW
  • 00:23:18.260 --> 00:23:22.220
  • TO EVERY PERSON HERE EVERY PERSON WATCHING AND
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:25.290
  • EVERY PERSON LISTENING WHEREVER THEY ARE.
  • 00:23:26.020 --> 00:23:28.170
  • IF THEY DON'T KNOW JESUS WE PRAY THAT TONIGHT WILL
