  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: YOU SEE
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:14.200
  • WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:00:14.200 --> 00:00:15.120
  • TO BORDER CONTROL,
  • 00:00:15.120 --> 00:00:15.290
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS IS THAT
  • 00:00:15.290 --> 00:00:16.250
  • PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY WANT TO SAY,
  • 00:00:16.250 --> 00:00:18.020
  • "WELL IT'S A POLITICALLY-DRIVEN
  • 00:00:18.020 --> 00:00:19.070
  • PROBLEM,"
  • 00:00:19.070 --> 00:00:19.220
  • "IT'S DRIVEN BY BAD POLICIES,"
  • 00:00:19.220 --> 00:00:21.210
  • "IT'S DRIVEN BY POOR DECISIONS
  • 00:00:21.210 --> 00:00:22.290
  • IN THE PAST."
  • 00:00:22.290 --> 00:00:24.180
  • SOME WILL WANT TO MAKE IT
  • 00:00:24.180 --> 00:00:25.280
  • A MORAL ISSUE.
  • 00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:26.260
  • THEY'LL WANT TO TALK
  • 00:00:26.260 --> 00:00:27.120
  • ABOUT ETHICS.
  • 00:00:27.120 --> 00:00:28.120
  • AND THEY'LL WANT TO SAY
  • 00:00:28.120 --> 00:00:29.140
  • THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:00:29.140 --> 00:00:30.270
  • IS CULTURALLY INAPPROPRIATE.
  • 00:00:30.290 --> 00:00:33.290
  • OTHERS ARE GOING TO CHOOSE TO
  • 00:00:33.290 --> 00:00:34.260
  • ARGUE IN THE ARENA OF ECONOMICS
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:36.230
  • AND LAW.
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:38.080
  • AND THE TRUTH IS,
  • 00:00:38.080 --> 00:00:39.020
  • IF YOU CHOOSE POLITICS,
  • 00:00:39.020 --> 00:00:40.140
  • OR YOU CHOOSE ECONOMICS,
  • 00:00:40.140 --> 00:00:41.190
  • OR YOU CHOOSE CULTURE,
  • 00:00:41.190 --> 00:00:42.270
  • OR YOU CHOOSE ETHNICITY;
  • 00:00:42.270 --> 00:00:44.110
  • ALL YOU'RE DOING IS SWINGING
  • 00:00:44.110 --> 00:00:45.230
  • AT THE SYMPTOMS OF THE ISSUE.
  • 00:00:45.230 --> 00:00:47.280
  • YOU'RE NOT GETTING DOWN TO
  • 00:00:47.280 --> 00:00:49.060
  • THE LARGER ISSUE AND HITTING IT
  • 00:00:49.060 --> 00:00:51.000
  • AT THE ROOT.
  • 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:52.150
  • THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM
  • 00:00:52.150 --> 00:00:53.120
  • WITH BORDER CONTROL
  • 00:00:53.120 --> 00:00:54.230
  • IS NOT A NATURAL PROBLEM.
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:56.110
  • IT'S NOT A RIGHT VERSUS LEFT
  • 00:00:56.110 --> 00:00:57.260
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:00:57.260 --> 00:00:58.120
  • IT'S NOT A POLITICAL PROBLEM.
  • 00:00:58.120 --> 00:01:00.050
  • IT'S NOT A LEGAL PROBLEM.
  • 00:01:00.050 --> 00:01:02.000
  • THE TRUTH ABOUT BORDER CONTROL
  • 00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:03.140
  • IS A RIGHTEOUSNESS VERSUS
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:05.080
  • UNRIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:01:05.080 --> 00:01:06.080
  • LIGHT VERSUS DARKNESS,
  • 00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:07.170
  • TRUTH VERSUS LIE
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:09.040
  • KIND OF PROBLEM.
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:11.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:01:11.120 --> 00:01:13.050
  • BECAUSE ALL IT IS,
  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:14.130
  • IS A SYMPTOM
  • 00:01:14.130 --> 00:01:15.180
  • OF THE SUPERNATURAL SITUATION
  • 00:01:15.180 --> 00:01:17.240
  • THAT WE HAVE CREATED
  • 00:01:17.240 --> 00:01:19.010
  • AT OUR NATURAL BORDER
  • 00:01:19.010 --> 00:01:20.250
  • WHERE WE HAVE ALREADY
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:21.220
  • SUPERNATURALLY VIOLATED
  • 00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:23.130
  • EVERY ONE OF GOD'S BORDERS.
  • 00:01:23.180 --> 00:01:26.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:27.120
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:29.090
  • A NATION."
  • 00:01:29.090 --> 00:01:29.270
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:01:29.270 --> 00:01:30.260
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS
  • 00:01:30.260 --> 00:01:33.000
  • A NATION."
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:34.210
  • GOD HAS A BOOK OF BORDERS.
  • 00:01:34.210 --> 00:01:37.190
  • AND AS LONG AS WE LIVE
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:38.260
  • WITHIN HIS BORDERS,
  • 00:01:38.260 --> 00:01:40.090
  • WE RECEIVE HIS BLESSINGS.
  • 00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:42.070
  • THE MOMENT WE CROSS THE LINE,
  • 00:01:42.070 --> 00:01:43.280
  • WE BEGIN TO STRUGGLE
  • 00:01:43.280 --> 00:01:45.130
  • FOR EVERYTHING WE POSSESS.
  • 00:01:45.160 --> 00:01:48.160
  • AND IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:49.080
  • WHICH DIRECTION YOU LOOK;
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:50.190
  • OUR WORLD IS STRUGGLING.
  • 00:01:50.280 --> 00:01:53.280
  • WE'RE STRUGGLING WITH ALL KINDS
  • 00:01:53.280 --> 00:01:55.210
  • OF ISSUES.
  • 00:01:55.210 --> 00:01:56.160
  • AND THE REALITY OF THOSE ISSUES
  • 00:01:56.160 --> 00:01:57.280
  • IS THERE'S NOTHING MORE THAN
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.120
  • A SYMPTOM OF THE SPIRITUAL
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:01.040
  • PROBLEM THAT WE'VE CREATED.
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:03.180
  • WE CROSSED THE LINE!
  • 00:02:03.180 --> 00:02:05.090
  • WHOSE LINE?
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:06.150
  • GOD'S LINE.
  • 00:02:06.150 --> 00:02:08.050
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:02:08.050 --> 00:02:10.000
  • GOD IS NOT LOOKING FOR A
  • 00:02:10.000 --> 00:02:11.100
  • POLITICAL POLICY TO BE WRITTEN
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:13.050
  • THAT HE CAN SEE BRING ORDER
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:14.280
  • TO THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:15.180
  • GOD IS LOOKING FOR THE PEOPLE
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.010
  • THAT HE BLED AND DIED FOR;
  • 00:02:17.010 --> 00:02:19.020
  • THAT HE SENT HIS SON TO REDEEM,
  • 00:02:19.020 --> 00:02:21.000
  • TO BEGIN TO ACT LIKE THE
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:22.050
  • RIGHTEOUS CHILDREN HE CREATED
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:23.220
  • US TO BE,
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:24.210
  • TO BECOME THE KIND OF PEOPLE
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:26.090
  • THAT WILL DO WHAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:02:26.090 --> 00:02:27.240
  • SAYS.
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:28.090
  • "IF MY PEOPLE,
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:29.070
  • WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:30.270
  • WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:32.000
  • AND PRAY,
  • 00:02:32.000 --> 00:02:32.240
  • THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:02:32.240 --> 00:02:35.020
  • AND I WILL HEAL THEIR LAND."
  • 00:02:35.190 --> 00:02:38.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:46.040
  • MY PRAYER IS THAT WE DO FIND
  • 00:02:46.040 --> 00:02:47.160
  • A BALANCE ON BORDER CONTROL
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:49.180
  • IN THIS NATION;
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:50.090
  • THAT WE GET BACK TO BEING
  • 00:02:50.090 --> 00:02:52.130
  • THE KIND OF PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:02:52.130 --> 00:02:54.010
  • GOVERNED BY GOD'S BORDERS
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:56.080
  • ESTABLISHED IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:57.050
  • OF TRUTH.
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:02:58.220
  • IF YOU FOUND JOHN 10,
  • 00:02:58.220 --> 00:02:59.280
  • LET'S READ THE TRUTH TOGETHER.
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:02.010
  • JOHN 10:9 AND 10.
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:04.060
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:03:04.060 --> 00:03:05.150
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:07.020
  • JESUS SAID, "I AM THE DOOR.
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:10.140
  • IF ANYONE ENTERS BY ME,
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:13.090
  • HE WILL BE SAVED,
  • 00:03:13.090 --> 00:03:15.040
  • AND WILL GO IN AND OUT
  • 00:03:15.040 --> 00:03:17.080
  • AND FIND PASTURE.
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:19.090
  • THE THIEF DOES NOT COME EXCEPT
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:21.190
  • TO KILL,
  • 00:03:21.190 --> 00:03:22.210
  • TO STEAL,
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:23.250
  • AND DESTROY.
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.100
  • I HAVE COME THAT THEY MAY HAVE
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:27.240
  • LIFE,
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:29.020
  • AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:30.180
  • MORE ABUNDANTLY."
  • 00:03:30.180 --> 00:03:32.230
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:33.150
  • LET US SEE YOUR TRUTH TODAY,
  • 00:03:33.250 --> 00:03:36.250
  • NOT ONLY AS A BORDER
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:37.280
  • AND A BOUNDARY,
  • 00:03:37.280 --> 00:03:38.200
  • BUT AS A BLESSING,
  • 00:03:38.200 --> 00:03:40.180
  • AS A RESOURCE THAT WE MIGHT
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:42.080
  • LIVE THE LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY
  • 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:44.100
  • THAT YOU HAVE CALLED US TO,
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:46.120
  • NOT BY CHOOSING OUR OWN PATH,
  • 00:03:46.120 --> 00:03:48.070
  • BUT BY CHOOSING TO BE OBEDIENT
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:50.050
  • AND FAITHFUL TO THE LIFE-GIVING
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:52.040
  • WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:54.010
  • IN JESUS' NAME,
  • 00:03:54.010 --> 00:03:54.190
  • WE PRAY AND ASK.
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:55.130
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:56.200
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:03:56.200 --> 00:03:57.190
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:03:57.190 --> 00:03:58.180
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:04.050
  • WHEN IT COMES TO BORDER
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:05.060
  • CONTROL,
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:05.210
  • THE REALITY OF THE SITUATION
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:07.040
  • IS WE'VE MADE IT A LOT MORE
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:08.160
  • COMPLICATED THAN IT SHOULD BE.
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:11.000
  • WHY?
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:12.120
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE CHANGED
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.030
  • OUR PERSPECTIVE ON BORDERS.
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:17.290
  • UNTIL RECENTLY,
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:19.100
  • BORDERS WERE CONSIDERED
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:20.170
  • BLESSINGS.
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:21.080
  • NOW, BORDERS ARE CONSIDERED
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.240
  • BURDENS.
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:24.140
  • WHY?
  • 00:04:24.140 --> 00:04:26.100
  • BECAUSE WE WOULD LIKE
  • 00:04:26.100 --> 00:04:27.210
  • TO BELIEVE THAT THE SECOND
  • 00:04:27.210 --> 00:04:28.240
  • WE CROSSED THE LINE,
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:30.010
  • THE SECOND WE GET OUTSIDE
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:31.260
  • OF THE BOUNDARY,
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:33.000
  • WE HAVE FOUND A NEW LEVEL
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.070
  • OF FREEDOM.
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:35.050
  • THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:37.080
  • WHENEVER YOU CROSS THE LINE,
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:38.130
  • YOU DON'T FIND A NEW LEVEL
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:40.000
  • OF FREEDOM;
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:40.170
  • YOU FIND CHAOS.
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:44.050
  • BORDERS ARE A BLESSING.
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:46.010
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:47.040
  • BORDERS ARE A BLESSING.
  • 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:48.260
  • YOU SAY,
  • 00:04:48.260 --> 00:04:49.080
  • "WELL I DON'T AGREE WITH THAT."
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:50.010
  • WELL, FINE.
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:50.220
  • THEN THERE IS NO BORDER
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:52.010
  • ON SECOND SERVICE;
  • 00:04:52.010 --> 00:04:53.050
  • WE CAN STAY AS LONG AS I WANT.
  • 00:04:53.050 --> 00:04:55.180
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:02.260
  • SEE; I TOLD YOU BORDERS
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:04.070
  • WERE A BLESSING.
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:04.290
  • NOW HOW MANY OF YOU ARE BLESSED
  • 00:05:04.290 --> 00:05:06.070
  • BY 12:30?
  • 00:05:06.070 --> 00:05:07.070
  • THAT'S WHEN SERVICE ENDS.
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:09.020
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:10.060
  • THAT'S A BOUNDARY.
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:11.010
  • IF I GO TO 12:35,
  • 00:05:11.010 --> 00:05:12.090
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GO, "PREACHER,
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:13.020
  • YOU'RE CROSSING THE LINE.
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:14.030
  • YOU'RE CROSSING THE LINE."
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:15.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:18.170
  • EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK,
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:19.170
  • GOD IS A GOD OF ORDER,
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:21.090
  • NOT CHAOS.
  • 00:05:21.090 --> 00:05:22.080
  • AND THE WAY THAT HE KEEPS ORDER
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:23.220
  • IS THROUGH BORDERS.
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:26.060
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:27.020
  • THE VERY WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.260
  • WAS FRAMED BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:31.240
  • WHEN HE CREATED THE WORLD,
  • 00:05:31.240 --> 00:05:33.090
  • THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH,
  • 00:05:33.090 --> 00:05:34.130
  • HE GAVE EVERYTHING BORDERS.
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:36.030
  • THE SUN DOES NOT SHINE
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:37.130
  • WHEN IT CHOOSES TO.
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:38.140
  • IT HAS BOUNDARIES.
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:39.130
  • GOD TOLD IT WHEN AND WHERE TO.
  • 00:05:39.130 --> 00:05:41.160
  • THE STARS THAT HE CALLS
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:43.020
  • BY NAME,
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:43.200
  • THAT HE KNOWS EVERY SINGLE ONE
  • 00:05:43.200 --> 00:05:44.220
  • BY NUMBER,
  • 00:05:44.220 --> 00:05:45.210
  • THEY DON'T GO OFF WHENEVER
  • 00:05:45.210 --> 00:05:46.230
  • THEY'D LIKE.
  • 00:05:46.230 --> 00:05:47.120
  • THEY SHINE ACCORDING
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:49.070
  • TO GOD'S BORDERS.
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:51.150
  • THE FISH OF THE SEA,
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:52.150
  • THE BIRDS OF THE AIR,
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:53.190
  • THE ANIMALS THAT HE CREATED
  • 00:05:53.190 --> 00:05:54.280
  • FOR THE LAND,
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:55.210
  • THE PASTURES,
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:56.150
  • THE TREES,
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:57.110
  • THE FLOWERS,
  • 00:05:57.110 --> 00:05:58.040
  • ALL OF THE THINGS THAT GOD DID,
  • 00:05:58.040 --> 00:06:00.210
  • HE GAVE IT A BORDER.
  • 00:06:00.210 --> 00:06:01.290
  • AND AS LONG AS IT'S
  • 00:06:01.290 --> 00:06:02.230
  • WITHIN THE BORDER,
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:03.200
  • IT'S BLESSED.
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:04.150
  • BUT THE SECOND IT CROSSES
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:05.180
  • THE LINE,
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:06.170
  • IT'S IN CHAOS.
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:08.270
  • A FISH OUT OF WATER IS NOT
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:10.130
  • BLESSED WITH THE FREEDOM
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:11.140
  • OF AIR;
  • 00:06:11.140 --> 00:06:12.110
  • IT'S DEAD.
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:15.020
  • CONSIDER ALL THE NATURAL
  • 00:06:15.020 --> 00:06:16.070
  • BORDERS THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.170
  • IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:18.220
  • THAT YOU TAKE FOR GRANTED
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:20.000
  • THAT ARE SIMPLY A BLESSING
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:21.220
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:23.040
  • OXYGEN IS A BORDER.
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:26.230
  • PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:27.080
  • "WELL WHAT DO YOU MEAN?"
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:28.030
  • GO ASK SCIENTISTS.
  • 00:06:28.030 --> 00:06:29.270
  • THEY'LL TELL YOU THAT IF ANY OF
  • 00:06:29.270 --> 00:06:31.020
  • THE CHEMICALS IN OUR ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:06:31.020 --> 00:06:32.270
  • GET OUT OF WHACK,
  • 00:06:32.270 --> 00:06:33.280
  • WE CATCH ON FIRE.
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:36.100
  • BUT GOD, IN HIS GENIUS,
  • 00:06:36.100 --> 00:06:37.240
  • PUT THEM RIGHT IN THE PERFECT
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:39.040
  • BALANCE,
  • 00:06:39.040 --> 00:06:39.200
  • EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM
  • 00:06:39.200 --> 00:06:40.280
  • AT THE RIGHT LEVEL,
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:41.290
  • SO THAT WHEN YOU BREATHE IN
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:43.100
  • AND YOU BREATHE OUT,
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:44.170
  • YOU CAN LIVE.
  • 00:06:44.170 --> 00:06:46.080
  • THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:06:46.080 --> 00:06:47.170
  • "IN HIM, WE LIVE,
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:49.080
  • AND WE MOVE,
  • 00:06:49.080 --> 00:06:50.000
  • AND WE HAVE OUR BEING."
  • 00:06:50.050 --> 00:06:53.050
  • YOU GET OUTSIDE OF THE BORDER
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.170
  • OF THIS ATMOSPHERE,
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.250
  • IT MIGHT SOUND COOL TO YOU
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:57.090
  • TO BE AN ASTRONAUT,
  • 00:06:57.090 --> 00:06:58.150
  • BUT YOU BREATHE ONE BREATH
  • 00:06:58.150 --> 00:06:59.270
  • IN OUTER SPACE
  • 00:06:59.270 --> 00:07:00.270
  • WITHOUT THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT,
  • 00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:01.290
  • YOU'RE DEAD!
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:04.140
  • AND THE REASON THAT WE'RE
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:05.050
  • HAVING SO MUCH STRUGGLE
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:06.160
  • WITH OUR NATURAL BORDERS
  • 00:07:06.160 --> 00:07:07.230
  • ON THIS EARTH
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:08.210
  • IS BECAUSE WE HAVE CROSSED
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:10.050
  • THE SUPERNATURAL LINES
  • 00:07:10.050 --> 00:07:11.190
  • THAT GOD HAS DRAWN.
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:13.020
  • THREE BORDERS THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:14.060
  • CROSSED,
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:14.250
  • THREE LINES
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:17.150
  • THAT WE HAVE DECIDED
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:18.080
  • NO LONGER MATTER,
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:20.070
  • AND THEY'RE BURDENING
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:20.240
  • OUR NATION.
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:21.130
  • I WANT TO DISCUSS THEM
  • 00:07:21.130 --> 00:07:22.070
  • IN THE BALANCE OF THIS SERVICE.
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:25.050
  • A BORDER THAT WE'VE CROSSED
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:26.070
  • COMES FROM GENESIS 1:27
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:28.190
  • ESTABLISHED IN
  • 00:07:28.190 --> 00:07:29.080
  • THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:30.230
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:31.250
  • "SO GOD CREATED MAN
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:34.050
  • IN HIS OWN IMAGE."
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:35.000
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:07:35.000 --> 00:07:35.270
  • "SO GOD CREATED MAN
  • 00:07:35.270 --> 00:07:38.160
  • IN HIS OWN IMAGE."
  • 00:07:38.160 --> 00:07:39.190
  • ONE OF THE REASONS WHY
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:40.220
  • WE STRUGGLE WITH SUCH
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:42.000
  • SIMPLE THINGS IN THIS TIME
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:44.090
  • OF OUR LIVES
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:45.110
  • IS BECAUSE WE HAVE FORGOTTEN
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:46.210
  • THE MOST BASIC TRUTH,
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:48.110
  • YOU WERE CREATED.
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:50.220
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:07:50.220 --> 00:07:51.240
  • YOU DID NOT EVOLVE!
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:54.070
  • YOU ARE NOT THE LATEST
  • 00:07:54.070 --> 00:07:55.110
  • AND GREATEST VERSION
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.250
  • OF A TWO-MILLION-YEAR-OLD
  • 00:07:56.250 --> 00:07:58.040
  • EXPERIMENT!
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:00.110
  • YOU WERE CREATED!
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:02.260
  • YOU ARE AN EXPRESSION
  • 00:08:02.260 --> 00:08:04.180
  • OF THE MANIFESTED GENIUS
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:06.170
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:08:06.170 --> 00:08:08.110
  • HE LOOKED AT THIS WORLD,
  • 00:08:08.110 --> 00:08:09.190
  • AND HE DIVINELY DESIGNED YOU,
  • 00:08:09.190 --> 00:08:11.220
  • AND THOUGHT THAT THIS PLANET
  • 00:08:11.220 --> 00:08:13.020
  • WOULD BE BETTER WITH YOU IN IT,
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.260
  • WHICH IS WHY THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:16.070
  • "BEFORE I FORMED YOU
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:17.130
  • IN THE WOMB,
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:18.090
  • I KNEW YOU."
  • 00:08:18.090 --> 00:08:19.020
  • IN THE BOOK OF ACTS,
  • 00:08:19.020 --> 00:08:20.030
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD SET
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:21.270
  • THE SEASONS,
  • 00:08:21.270 --> 00:08:22.150
  • AND THE TIMES,
  • 00:08:22.150 --> 00:08:23.090
  • AND THE BOUNDARIES OF ALL MEN.
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:25.050
  • WHAT THE BIBLE IS SAYING
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:26.110
  • IS THAT GOD DESIGNED YOU,
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:27.290
  • AND HE CHOSE YOU,
  • 00:08:27.290 --> 00:08:28.270
  • AND HE APPOINTED YOU,
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.150
  • AND HE PLACED YOU ON THE EARTH
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:32.110
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:33.260
  • DON'T WALK AROUND THINKING THAT
  • 00:08:33.260 --> 00:08:35.080
  • YOU'RE SOME FORM OF CHANCE!
  • 00:08:35.080 --> 00:08:37.130
  • KNOW THAT GOD MADE A CHOICE!
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:39.080
  • AND WHEN HE MADE THAT CHOICE,
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:40.190
  • HE CREATED YOU!
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:43.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:49.050
  • YOU SAY, "WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?"
  • 00:08:49.050 --> 00:08:50.160
  • THE BIG DEAL
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:51.040
  • IS WHEN YOU'RE CREATED,
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:52.110
  • YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:53.160
  • TO BEHAVE LIKE THE CREATOR
  • 00:08:53.160 --> 00:08:55.040
  • INTENDED.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:57.260
  • YOU DON'T GET TO CHOOSE
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:08:58.270
  • YOUR BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:08:59.270
  • THERE IS AN EXPECTATION
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:01.230
  • OF BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:04.080
  • SO GOD CREATED MAN.
  • 00:09:04.080 --> 00:09:05.250
  • HOW DID HE DO IT?
  • 00:09:05.250 --> 00:09:06.190
  • IN HIS OWN IMAGE.
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:08.040
  • NOW LISTEN TO THE LINE
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:09.020
  • THAT WE'VE CROSSED.
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:09.270
  • "HE CREATED THEM MALE AND --"
  • 00:09:11.030 --> 00:09:14.030
  • [Female.]
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:14.220
  • OH, YOU'VE HEARD THIS.
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:16.080
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:18.220
  • "HE CREATED THEM MALE
  • 00:09:18.220 --> 00:09:21.220
  • AND FEMALE."
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:23.140
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE ENOUGH
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:24.190
  • INTELLIGENCE TO SEE TWO?
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:27.080
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:27.080 --> 00:09:29.140
  • NOT TEN;
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:31.220
  • TWO.
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:32.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:32.260 --> 00:09:34.210
  • HE DIDN'T SAY,
  • 00:09:34.210 --> 00:09:35.110
  • "HE CREATED THEM;
  • 00:09:35.110 --> 00:09:36.150
  • BE WHAT YOU FEEL."
  • 00:09:36.150 --> 00:09:39.110
  • "HE CREATED THEM --"
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:40.090
  • JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
  • 00:09:40.090 --> 00:09:41.140
  • THE FIRST TWO TIMES,
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:43.120
  • "-- MALE AND FEMALE."
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:47.020
  • THIS IS A LINE
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:47.210
  • THAT WE'VE CROSSED.
  • 00:09:47.210 --> 00:09:50.070
  • AND IN CROSSING THE LINE,
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:51.100
  • WE HAVEN'T FOUND A NEW LEVEL
  • 00:09:51.100 --> 00:09:52.200
  • OF ENLIGHTENMENT;
  • 00:09:52.200 --> 00:09:53.140
  • WE FOUND CHAOS.
  • 00:09:53.180 --> 00:09:56.180
  • WE'VE TURNED OUR WORLD
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:57.160
  • UPSIDE DOWN.
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:58.130
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:09:59.090
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO LIVE
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:00.060
  • WITHIN THE BORDERS
  • 00:10:00.060 --> 00:10:00.270
  • OF THE FACTS;
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:01.290
  • WE'D LIKE TO LIVE OUTSIDE
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:03.190
  • IN OUR FEELINGS.
  • 00:10:03.220 --> 00:10:06.220
  • AND ALTHOUGH THIS SOUNDS LIKE
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:07.220
  • SUCH A BASIC TRUTH THAT
  • 00:10:07.220 --> 00:10:08.270
  • KINDERGARTNERS CAN UNDERSTAND
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:10.080
  • IT;
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:10.230
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:10:10.230 --> 00:10:11.130
  • IF WE LOSE THIS FOUNDATION,
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:13.070
  • NOTHING ELSE CAN WORK.
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:16.070
  • GOD CREATED US.
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:18.130
  • HE HAS GIVEN US AN EXPECTATION
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:20.210
  • OF BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:21.150
  • AND HE CREATED US MALE
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:22.280
  • AND FEMALE.
  • 00:10:22.280 --> 00:10:23.250
  • AND THEN IN VERSE 28,
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:25.150
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:10:25.150 --> 00:10:26.020
  • "AND HE COMMANDED THEM,
  • 00:10:26.020 --> 00:10:27.250

  • IS SO EXACT,
  • 00:11:59.260 --> 00:12:00.160
  • HE USED THE WORD "MULTIPLY."

  • 00:12:03.160 --> 00:12:04.110

  • THE ANTHROPOLOGISTS,
  • 00:12:14.230 --> 00:12:15.190

  • AND ALL THOSE OTHER "GISTS"
  • 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:17.170
  • WILL TELL YOU;
  • 00:12:17.170 --> 00:12:19.080
  • THAT IF A CIVILIZATION
  • 00:12:19.080 --> 00:12:20.160
  • IS THRIVING,
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:22.220
  • THE BIRTHRATE IS AROUND 4.4.
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:26.150
  • NOW UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:27.200
  • MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE,
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:29.090

  • MULTIPLICATION?
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:35.230
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT --
  • 00:12:35.230 --> 00:12:37.020
  • OR SCIENTISTS WILL TELL YOU
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:39.010
  • THAT IF A CIVILIZATION
  • 00:12:39.010 --> 00:12:40.240
  • IS DECLINING,
  • 00:12:40.240 --> 00:12:42.150
  • THE BIRTHRATE IS AROUND 2.
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:46.080
  • THAT'S NOT MULTIPLICATION;
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:47.170
  • THAT'S JUST REPRODUCING.
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:50.160
  • AND THEN IT SAYS THAT
  • 00:12:50.160 --> 00:12:51.130
  • IF A CIVILIZATION IS DYING,
  • 00:12:51.130 --> 00:12:53.210
  • THE BIRTHRATE IS LOWER THAN 2.
  • 00:12:53.210 --> 00:12:55.290
  • RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:12:55.290 --> 00:12:56.180
  • THE BIRTHRATE
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:57.050
  • IN THE UNITED STATES 1.9.
  • 00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:02.190
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:03.020
  • IN THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:03.190
  • THAT SAY OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:04.220
  • IS MELTING ICECAPS.
  • 00:13:04.220 --> 00:13:06.000
  • NO.
  • 00:13:06.000 --> 00:13:07.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:10.180
  • OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:11.080
  • IS THAT WE ARE NOT REPRODUCING
  • 00:13:11.080 --> 00:13:13.170
  • ENOUGH PEOPLE TO CONTINUE
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:16.030
  • THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:18.180
  • THE MORE PEOPLE YOU PRODUCE,
  • 00:13:18.180 --> 00:13:19.200
  • THE MORE CONSUMERS YOU HAVE.
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:21.000
  • THE MORE PRODUCERS YOU HAVE,
  • 00:13:21.000 --> 00:13:22.050
  • THE MORE THINGS YOU CAN BUY,
  • 00:13:22.050 --> 00:13:23.250
  • SELL, AND TRADE.
  • 00:13:23.250 --> 00:13:26.160
  • HE CREATED THEM MALE
  • 00:13:26.160 --> 00:13:27.190
  • AND FEMALE,
  • 00:13:27.190 --> 00:13:28.060
  • AND SAID,
  • 00:13:28.060 --> 00:13:28.210
  • "BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY."
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:32.020
  • THIS IS GOD'S STATEMENT
  • 00:13:32.020 --> 00:13:33.110
  • AND HIS POSITION
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:34.110
  • AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY.
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:37.090
  • REMEMBER I SAID THAT GOD
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:38.120
  • IS IN FAVOR OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:39.280
  • HE DIED.
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:40.180
  • HE SENT HIS SON TO REDEEM
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:42.040
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:42.260
  • BUT HE DOES HAVE AN EXPECTATION
  • 00:13:42.260 --> 00:13:44.230
  • OF OUR BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:45.260
  • AND HE IS AGAINST THE BEHAVIOR
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:47.290
  • OF HOMOSEXUALITY.
  • 00:13:47.290 --> 00:13:50.120
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:57.000 --> 00:14:00.020
  • YOU SAY,

  • "WELL THAT'S NOT POLITICALLY
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:01.090
  • CORRECT."
  • 00:14:01.090 --> 00:14:01.260
  • YOU'RE WRONG!
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:06.080
  • I'D RATHER BE RIGHT
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:07.160
  • THAN POLITICALLY CORRECT.

  • "BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY,"

  • IT'S AGAINST THE BEHAVIOR
  • 00:14:17.230 --> 00:14:18.250
  • OF HOMOSEXUALITY,
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:19.250
  • BECAUSE IF THE TWO PEOPLE
  • 00:14:19.250 --> 00:14:21.060
  • IN THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.040
  • ARE THE SAME SEX,
  • 00:14:22.040 --> 00:14:23.100
  • THEN THEY CANNOT REPRODUCE;
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:24.230
  • THEY CAN ONLY RECRUIT.
  • 00:14:24.240 --> 00:14:27.240
  • (LAUGHTER)

  • WE DO NOT CONSIDER THE CHILDREN
  • 00:14:35.120 --> 00:14:37.040
  • THAT GOD BLESSES US WITH TO BE
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:38.200
  • WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,

  • "THE INHERITANCE OF THE LORD."
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:42.090
  • IT'S NOT JUST A HOMOSEXUAL
  • 00:14:42.090 --> 00:14:44.040
  • AND A HETEROSEXUAL PROBLEM;
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:45.250
  • IT'S A HUMAN BEING PROBLEM,
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:47.060
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE BECOME WHAT
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:48.170
  • PAUL TOLD TIMOTHY WE WOULD BE,
  • 00:14:48.170 --> 00:14:50.100

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:16.080

  • THEN I HAVE FAILED IN LIFE.
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.170
  • AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:26.190
  • THAT I WILL EVER DO
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:28.000

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:36.160 --> 00:15:38.200
  • AND WHAT'S CRAZY
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:39.220
  • IS WE TRAIN OUR DOGS,
  • 00:15:39.220 --> 00:15:41.040
  • AND THEN WE CHAIN THEM UP
  • 00:15:41.040 --> 00:15:42.020
  • AT NIGHT;
  • 00:15:42.020 --> 00:15:42.210

  • ANYTHING,
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:44.110

  • AT NIGHT.
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:48.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:48.210 --> 00:15:50.080
  • BECAUSE IN ORDER FOR US
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:51.030
  • TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:15:51.030 --> 00:15:52.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LIVE

  • WITHIN THE BORDERS
  • 00:15:53.130 --> 00:15:54.140
  • OF TRAINING THEM.
  • 00:15:54.140 --> 00:15:56.150
  • WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:57.030
  • TO SACRIFICE OURSELVES
  • 00:15:57.030 --> 00:15:58.230

  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:02.110
  • "YOU'LL BECOME LOVERS
  • 00:16:02.110 --> 00:16:03.060
  • OF YOURSELF."
  • 00:16:03.060 --> 00:16:04.030
  • DO YOU KNOW THE MOST
  • 00:16:04.030 --> 00:16:04.230
  • SACRIFICIAL THING THAT ANY
  • 00:16:04.230 --> 00:16:06.090
  • HUMAN BEING CAN EVER DO?
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:08.240
  • GET MARRIED AND HAVE KIDS.
  • 00:16:08.270 --> 00:16:11.270
  • BELIEVE ME;
  • 00:16:11.270 --> 00:16:12.210
  • ME TIME IS GONE.
  • 00:16:12.280 --> 00:16:15.280
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:22.030
  • GOD GAVE US A PURPOSE,
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:23.260
  • "BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY."
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:26.190
  • THEN IN GENESIS 1:28,
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:27.250
  • HE SAID, "SUBDUE THE EARTH
  • 00:16:27.250 --> 00:16:30.060
  • AND HAVE DOMINION OVER IT."
  • 00:16:30.140 --> 00:16:33.140
  • THIS IS GOD'S BIBLICAL BALANCE
  • 00:16:33.140 --> 00:16:35.270
  • ON HOW WE'RE TO TAKE CARE
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:36.260
  • OF THE PLANET.
  • 00:16:36.260 --> 00:16:37.150
  • GOD GAVE ADAM THE FIRST JOB,
  • 00:16:37.150 --> 00:16:39.140
  • TAKE CARE OF MY CREATION.
  • 00:16:39.140 --> 00:16:41.080
  • THAT JOB DESCRIPTION
  • 00:16:41.080 --> 00:16:42.070
  • HASN'T CHANGED.
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:43.020
  • HE STILL EXPECTS US
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:44.100
  • TO TAKE CARE OF THIS PLANET,
  • 00:16:44.100 --> 00:16:46.030
  • NOT TEAR IT UP;
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:47.090
  • CARE FOR IT.
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:49.070
  • BUT THERE'S A BALANCE.
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:51.020
  • GOD PUT EVERYTHING
  • 00:16:51.020 --> 00:16:52.070
  • ON THIS PLANET FOR OUR USE,
  • 00:16:52.070 --> 00:16:54.030
  • FOR OUR PURPOSE,
  • 00:16:54.030 --> 00:16:55.060
  • FOR OUR RESOURCES.
  • 00:16:55.060 --> 00:16:56.190
  • AND WHENEVER WE ALLOW
  • 00:16:56.190 --> 00:16:57.170
  • THE CREATED THINGS
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:16:58.250
  • TO CONTROL US,
  • 00:16:58.250 --> 00:17:00.040
  • WE'RE OUT OF BALANCE.
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:02.260
  • BUT THE BIBLE IS SO ACCURATE.
  • 00:17:02.260 --> 00:17:04.100
  • ROMANS 1:25, IT SAYS,
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:06.120
  • "THEY TRADED THE TRUTH
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:07.100
  • FOR A LIE."
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:09.120
  • THEY STARTED TO WORSHIP
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:10.160
  • THE CREATED
  • 00:17:10.160 --> 00:17:12.100
  • AND NOT THE CREATOR.
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:14.180
  • HOW MANY OF YOU SEE THINGS
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:15.160
  • IN OUR WORLD WHERE WE'RE
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:16.120
  • WORSHIPING THE CREATED
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:17.290
  • AND NOT THE CREATOR?
  • 00:17:18.050 --> 00:17:21.050
  • IT'S TIME TO GET BACK
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:22.020
  • WITHIN THE BORDERS
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.250
  • THAT GOD HAS ESTABLISHED.
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:26.090
  • WE ARE CREATED.
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:27.210
  • HE IS OUR CREATOR.
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:29.090
  • WE SHOULD LIVE AND BEHAVE
  • 00:17:29.090 --> 00:17:30.190
  • AS IF HE --
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:32.020
  • AS THOUGH HE DESIGNED US TO.
  • 00:17:32.020 --> 00:17:34.080
  • THE SECOND BORDER THAT WE'VE
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:35.120
  • CROSSED COMES FROM GENESIS 9:4.
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:40.050
  • IN THIS VERSE,
  • 00:17:40.050 --> 00:17:41.090
  • GOD RESTATES WHAT HE SAID
  • 00:17:41.090 --> 00:17:43.120
  • IN GENESIS 1,
  • 00:17:43.120 --> 00:17:44.250
  • "BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY."
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:46.290
  • BUT THEN HE ADDS THIS STATEMENT
  • 00:17:46.290 --> 00:17:48.240
  • IN GENESIS 9:4.
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.100
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:17:50.100 --> 00:17:50.250
  • "LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD."
  • 00:17:50.250 --> 00:17:52.290
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:17:52.290 --> 00:17:54.000
  • "LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD."
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:57.070
  • THAT'S A BORDER.
  • 00:17:57.070 --> 00:17:59.020
  • IF GOD IS THE GIVER OF LIFE,
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:00.150
  • AND GOD SAYS THAT LIFE IS
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:01.210
  • IN THE BLOOD,
  • 00:18:01.210 --> 00:18:02.110
  • THEN WE KNOW WHERE LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:18:02.110 --> 00:18:04.290
  • AND THEN HE SAYS,
  • 00:18:04.290 --> 00:18:05.220
  • "AND WHOEVER SHEDS
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:06.280
  • INNOCENT BLOOD,
  • 00:18:06.280 --> 00:18:07.250
  • HIS BLOOD SHALL BE SHED."
  • 00:18:07.250 --> 00:18:10.120
  • THAT'S A BORDER.
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:11.050
  • THAT'S AN EXPECTATION
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:12.190
  • OF BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:18:12.190 --> 00:18:14.230
  • CHURCH, SIMPLY STATED,
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:16.090
  • WE'VE CROSSED THE LINE WHENEVER
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:18.010
  • IT COMES TO THIS TRUTH
  • 00:18:18.010 --> 00:18:19.120
  • THAT LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD.
  • 00:18:19.120 --> 00:18:22.070
  • WE'VE CROSSED THE LINE
  • 00:18:22.070 --> 00:18:23.070
  • BY ALLOWING ABORTION.
  • 00:18:23.070 --> 00:18:25.260
  • WE'VE CROSSED THE LINE
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:26.280
  • OVER 60 MILLION TIMES
  • 00:18:26.280 --> 00:18:28.220
  • BY MURDERING CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:31.260
  • DON'T LET THE POLITICAL WORD
  • 00:18:31.260 --> 00:18:33.160
  • "FETUS" EVER ENTER INTO
  • 00:18:33.160 --> 00:18:35.060
  • YOUR BRAIN.
  • 00:18:35.060 --> 00:18:36.020
  • THAT'S NOT A FETUS;
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:37.170
  • THAT IS A CHILD THAT GOD
  • 00:18:37.170 --> 00:18:39.080
  • CREATED.
  • 00:18:39.080 --> 00:18:41.140
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:56.030
  • IF LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD,
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:57.270
  • THEN SCIENCE TELLS US THAT
  • 00:18:57.270 --> 00:18:59.100
  • ON DAY EIGHT OF GESTATION,
  • 00:18:59.100 --> 00:19:01.210
  • EVERY CHILD HAS A BLOOD SUPPLY,
  • 00:19:02.150 --> 00:19:05.150
  • WHICH MEANS THAT BEFORE
  • 00:19:05.150 --> 00:19:06.150
  • THE MOTHER KNOWS
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:07.050
  • SHE'S PREGNANT,
  • 00:19:07.050 --> 00:19:09.150
  • THAT BABY HAS BLOOD.
  • 00:19:09.150 --> 00:19:12.110
  • PRIOR TO THAT,
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:13.040
  • GO READ JEREMIAH 1.
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:15.140
  • GOD SAID TO JEREMIAH,
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:16.210
  • "BEFORE I FORMED YOU
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:17.180
  • IN THE WOMB,
  • 00:19:17.180 --> 00:19:18.080
  • I KNEW YOU."
  • 00:19:18.080 --> 00:19:20.180
  • THAT MEANS BEFORE THE WOMAN
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:21.220
  • EVER KNEW SHE WAS PREGNANT,
  • 00:19:21.220 --> 00:19:23.000
  • BEFORE THE TWO INDIVIDUALS
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:24.020
  • THAT CREATED THE LIFE EVER GOT
  • 00:19:24.020 --> 00:19:25.180
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:26.100
  • GOD KNEW EXACTLY WHEN
  • 00:19:26.100 --> 00:19:28.000
  • AND WHERE,
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:28.130
  • DATE AND TIME,
  • 00:19:28.130 --> 00:19:29.080
  • HOUR
  • 00:19:29.080 --> 00:19:30.020
  • THAT THAT BABY WOULD BE BORN.
  • 00:19:30.020 --> 00:19:32.130
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:34.160 --> 00:19:37.160
  • SO IT'S NOT A MATTER
  • 00:19:37.160 --> 00:19:38.050
  • OF PRO-LIFE AND PRO-CHOICE.
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:39.240
  • IT'S A MATTER OF PRO-LIFE
  • 00:19:39.240 --> 00:19:41.030
  • AND MURDER.
  • 00:19:41.030 --> 00:19:42.200
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:43.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:51.000
  • SO WHEN WE COUNT THE NUMBER
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:52.060
  • OF 60 MILLION ABORTED CHILDREN,
  • 00:19:52.060 --> 00:19:54.250
  • WE'RE NOT COUNTING THEM
  • 00:19:54.250 --> 00:19:55.240
  • INDIVIDUALLY.
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:56.190
  • CONSIDER WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:19:58.110
  • CREATED.
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:19:58.260
  • CONSIDER WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:19:58.260 --> 00:20:00.050
  • DONE.
  • 00:20:00.050 --> 00:20:00.190
  • CONSIDER WHAT GOD SAW
  • 00:20:00.190 --> 00:20:02.080
  • IN THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:03.060
  • AND THEIR GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:20:03.060 --> 00:20:04.100
  • FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
  • 00:20:04.100 --> 00:20:05.250
  • AND GOD SAYS,
  • 00:20:05.250 --> 00:20:06.170
  • THAT BLOOD CRIES OUT TO ME
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:08.190
  • FROM THE GROUND.
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:12.130
  • GOD, HELP US.
  • 00:20:12.130 --> 00:20:15.120
  • WE'VE GOT TO GET BACK
  • 00:20:15.120 --> 00:20:16.070
  • WITHIN THAT BORDER.
  • 00:20:16.290 --> 00:20:19.290
  • WHY?
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:21.250
  • BECAUSE THE LAST LINE
  • 00:20:21.250 --> 00:20:22.220
  • THAT WE'VE CROSSED
  • 00:20:22.220 --> 00:20:25.010
  • THAT WE'LL SPEAK ABOUT TODAY
  • 00:20:25.010 --> 00:20:27.070
  • IS THE BORDER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:20:28.140 --> 00:20:31.140
  • PROVERBS 14:34,
  • 00:20:31.140 --> 00:20:32.230
  • IT SAYS, "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS
  • 00:20:32.230 --> 00:20:35.090
  • A NATION."
  • 00:20:35.090 --> 00:20:36.000
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:36.250
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:38.270
  • A NATION."
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:39.120
  • NOW, ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:40.130
  • THAT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:41.140
  • ABOUT THIS VERSE
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:42.180
  • IS THAT IT IS TAKING TWO THINGS
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:44.230
  • AND PUTTING THEM TOGETHER.
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:46.040
  • IT'S TAKING
  • 00:20:46.040 --> 00:20:46.270
  • AN INDIVIDUAL CHOICE
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:48.130
  • AND A CORPORATE ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:20:48.130 --> 00:20:50.130
  • AND SAYING THAT YOUR INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:51.280
  • CHOICE CREATES A BLESSING
  • 00:20:51.280 --> 00:20:53.240
  • FOR THE ENTIRE BODY.
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:56.140
  • WE SAY,
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:57.000
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS
  • 00:20:57.000 --> 00:20:57.290
  • A NATION,"
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:20:58.210
  • AND WE THINK THAT IF WE GET
  • 00:20:58.210 --> 00:20:59.240
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS ON A POLITICAL
  • 00:20:59.240 --> 00:21:01.040
  • PLATFORM,
  • 00:21:01.040 --> 00:21:01.240
  • IT'LL CHANGE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:02.280
  • WRONG!
  • 00:21:02.280 --> 00:21:05.150
  • BECAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS NOT
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:06.180
  • A POLITICAL PLATFORM;
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:07.210
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS
  • 00:21:07.210 --> 00:21:08.210
  • A PERSONAL CHOICE.
  • 00:21:08.210 --> 00:21:11.030
  • IT'S A CHOICE THAT I MAKE
  • 00:21:11.030 --> 00:21:12.150
  • FOR ME.
  • 00:21:12.150 --> 00:21:13.070
  • AND IT'S A CHOICE THAT YOU MAKE
  • 00:21:13.070 --> 00:21:14.150
  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:15.040
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS KNOWING TO DO
  • 00:21:15.040 --> 00:21:16.280
  • RIGHT AND DOING IT.
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:20.000
  • AND THERE ISN'T A CANDIDATE,
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:21.060
  • THERE ISN'T A POLICY,
  • 00:21:21.060 --> 00:21:22.070
  • THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THAT CAN
  • 00:21:22.070 --> 00:21:23.130
  • BE DONE THAT'S GOING TO FORCE
  • 00:21:23.130 --> 00:21:25.070
  • YOU TO MAKE THAT CHOICE.
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:28.080
  • BUT WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:21:28.080 --> 00:21:29.090
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS,"
  • 00:21:29.090 --> 00:21:30.110
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:31.050
  • YOUR PERSONAL DECISION
  • 00:21:31.050 --> 00:21:32.190
  • TO LIVE RIGHT,
  • 00:21:32.190 --> 00:21:33.180
  • IT EXALTS A NATION.
  • 00:21:33.180 --> 00:21:36.170
  • WHY?
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:36.270
  • BECAUSE IF I DO RIGHT,
  • 00:21:36.270 --> 00:21:38.060
  • AND YOU DO RIGHT,
  • 00:21:38.060 --> 00:21:39.050
  • AND WE DO RIGHT,
  • 00:21:39.050 --> 00:21:40.120
  • AND EVERYONE'S DOING RIGHT,
  • 00:21:40.120 --> 00:21:41.190
  • THEN CORPORATELY,
  • 00:21:41.190 --> 00:21:42.170
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET BETTER.
  • 00:21:42.210 --> 00:21:45.210
  • DON'T MAKE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:46.210
  • EXALTING A NATION A POLITICAL
  • 00:21:46.210 --> 00:21:48.150
  • POINT.
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:48.280
  • MAKE IT A PERSONAL POINT.
  • 00:21:48.280 --> 00:21:51.240
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:52.140
  • THE POLITICAL PARTY.
  • 00:21:52.140 --> 00:21:53.170
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT THE CANDIDATE;
  • 00:21:53.170 --> 00:21:55.020
  • IT'S ABOUT YOU!
  • 00:21:55.020 --> 00:21:57.230
  • WHY?
  • 00:21:57.230 --> 00:21:58.210
  • BECAUSE THIS NATION NEEDS
  • 00:21:58.210 --> 00:22:00.090
  • CHANGE WITHOUT QUESTION.
  • 00:22:00.090 --> 00:22:01.270
  • BUT THE CHANGE WE NEED IS NOT
  • 00:22:01.270 --> 00:22:03.130
  • AN OUTSIDE-IN CHANGE;
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:05.010
  • IT'S AN INSIDE-OUT CHANGE.
  • 00:22:05.010 --> 00:22:07.090
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:08.060
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:11.110 --> 00:22:14.110
  • AND THIS CHANGE FROM INSIDE-OUT
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:16.110
  • COMES FROM WHEN YOU TAKE
  • 00:22:16.110 --> 00:22:17.110
  • AN EXAMINATION OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:22:17.110 --> 00:22:19.090
  • AND YOU SEE WHERE YOU'VE
  • 00:22:19.090 --> 00:22:20.120
  • CROSSED THE LINE.
  • 00:22:20.120 --> 00:22:21.100
  • AND YOU SAY, GOD,
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:22.130
  • I REPENT AND I'M GOING TO GET
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:23.240
  • BACK WITHIN THE BORDERS
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:24.270
  • OF YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:22:24.270 --> 00:22:25.260
  • I'M GOING TO GET BACK WITHIN
  • 00:22:25.260 --> 00:22:27.020
  • THE BORDERS OF YOUR WORD.
  • 00:22:27.020 --> 00:22:28.120
  • I'M GOING TO GET BACK
  • 00:22:28.120 --> 00:22:29.070
  • WITHIN THE BORDERS
  • 00:22:29.070 --> 00:22:29.290
  • OF YOUR COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:22:29.290 --> 00:22:30.290
  • I'M GOING TO GET BACK WITHIN
  • 00:22:30.290 --> 00:22:32.060
  • THE BORDERS OF HOW YOU WANT ME
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:33.270
  • TO LIVE, AND MOVE,
  • 00:22:33.270 --> 00:22:34.220
  • AND HAVE MY BEING.
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:36.270
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:22:36.270 --> 00:22:37.160
  • AND WHEN ENOUGH OF US DO THAT,
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:39.030
  • THEN THE NATION GETS RIGHT.
  • 00:22:39.030 --> 00:22:40.210
  • UNTIL THEN,
  • 00:22:40.210 --> 00:22:41.120
  • THERE'S NOT ENOUGH ELECTIONS
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:42.260
  • TO FIX WHAT WE'VE GOT IN FRONT
  • 00:22:42.260 --> 00:22:44.020
  • OF US.
  • 00:22:44.020 --> 00:22:46.240
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION,
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:48.160
  • BUT SIN IS A REPROACH
  • 00:22:48.160 --> 00:22:49.190
  • TO ANY PEOPLE."
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:52.000
  • PEOPLE OFTEN HANG THE WILL
  • 00:22:52.000 --> 00:22:54.210
  • OF REFORM ON SOME INDIVIDUAL.
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:56.290
  • "OH, I HOPE THEY CAN HELP US."
  • 00:22:56.290 --> 00:22:58.270
  • NO.
  • 00:22:58.270 --> 00:22:59.200
  • YOU HAVE TO HELP US.
  • 00:22:59.200 --> 00:23:01.290
  • I HAVE TO HELP US.
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:03.090
  • WE HAVE TO HELP US.
  • 00:23:03.130 --> 00:23:06.130
  • BECAUSE UNTIL WE ALL PERSONALLY
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:08.230
  • INVEST OURSELVES
  • 00:23:08.230 --> 00:23:09.090
  • IN RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:10.050
  • NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE.
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:12.150
  • YOU CAN'T FIX IT
  • 00:23:12.150 --> 00:23:13.110
  • FROM THE OUTSIDE-IN.
  • 00:23:13.110 --> 00:23:14.220
  • IT'S GOT TO HAPPEN
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:15.140
  • ON THE HEART,
  • 00:23:15.140 --> 00:23:16.110
  • AND THEN MOVE OUT.
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:18.290
  • JESUS CHRIST SAID,
  • 00:23:18.290 --> 00:23:20.200
  • "I AM THE WAY.
  • 00:23:20.200 --> 00:23:21.170
  • I AM THE TRUTH.
  • 00:23:21.170 --> 00:23:22.090
  • I AM THE LIFE."
  • 00:23:22.090 --> 00:23:23.060
  • WHY?
  • 00:23:23.060 --> 00:23:23.200
  • BECAUSE HE WANTS TO WORK
  • 00:23:23.200 --> 00:23:24.120
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU, OUT.
  • 00:23:24.230 --> 00:23:27.230
  • AND HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:23:27.230 --> 00:23:29.090
  • WHAT YOU DO IS THAT YOU LIVE
  • 00:23:29.090 --> 00:23:31.180
  • YOUR LIFE IN SUCH A WAY THAT
  • 00:23:31.180 --> 00:23:33.100
  • BRINGS GLORY AND HONOR TO HIM.
  • 00:23:33.100 --> 00:23:35.190
  • YES, WE ARE IN NEED
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:36.270
  • OF A DESPERATE CHANGE.
  • 00:23:36.270 --> 00:23:37.240
  • BUT THAT CHANGE IS AN INSIDE
  • 00:23:37.240 --> 00:23:39.220
  • CHANGE THAT MOVES
  • 00:23:39.220 --> 00:23:41.040
  • ON THE OUTSIDE OF US.
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:42.250
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US VERY CLEARLY
  • 00:23:42.250 --> 00:23:44.230
  • THAT EVERY NATION THAT FORGETS
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:46.240
  • GOD IS TURNED INTO HELL.
  • 00:23:46.240 --> 00:23:48.160
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT HELL IS?
  • 00:23:48.160 --> 00:23:49.260
  • HELL IS A PLACE THAT IS VOID
  • 00:23:49.260 --> 00:23:51.220
  • OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:23:51.220 --> 00:23:54.030
  • AND THIS NATION IS DOING
  • 00:23:54.030 --> 00:23:55.050
  • EVERYTHING IT CAN TO TRY
  • 00:23:55.050 --> 00:23:56.280
  • AND GET GOD OUT OF EVERYTHING
  • 00:23:56.280 --> 00:23:58.080
  • THAT WE ARE.
  • 00:23:58.080 --> 00:23:59.060
  • BUT IF YOU CHOOSE TODAY
  • 00:23:59.060 --> 00:24:01.240
  • THAT YOU AND YOUR HOUSE
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:03.100
  • ARE GOING TO SERVE THE LORD,
  • 00:24:03.100 --> 00:24:04.250
  • THEN I ASSURE YOU;
  • 00:24:04.250 --> 00:24:06.050
  • YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:24:06.050 --> 00:24:07.280
  • THAT THIS NATION IS ALWAYS
  • 00:24:07.280 --> 00:24:09.260
  • ONE NATION UNDER GOD!
  • 00:24:09.260 --> 00:24:12.060
  • GIVE THE LORD A HANDCLAP
  • 00:24:12.060 --> 00:24:13.150
  • OF PRAISE!
  • 00:24:13.150 --> 00:24:14.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:24:18.230 --> 00:24:21.230
  • I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO STAND.
  • 00:24:22.040 --> 00:24:25.040
  • MUSIC
  • 00:24:26.140 --> 00:24:29.140
  • I WANT EVERYBODY IN THIS ROOM
  • 00:24:29.140 --> 00:24:30.180
  • TO RAISE THEIR HANDS
  • 00:24:30.180 --> 00:24:31.160
  • AND REPEAT THIS PRAYER WITH ME.
  • 00:24:31.160 --> 00:24:32.230
  • LORD JESUS CHRIST,

  • 00:24:53.260 --> 00:24:55.200
  • TODAY, FATHER, I REPENT
  • 00:24:55.240 --> 00:24:58.240
  • FOR CROSSING THE LINE,
  • 00:24:58.240 --> 00:25:01.000

  • AND I DECLARE TODAY
  • 00:25:12.090 --> 00:25:15.010
  • THAT THE TRUTH WILL SET ME
  • 00:25:15.010 --> 00:25:16.110
