  • MATT CROUCH: WE WELCOME YOU BACK TO THIS GLORIOUS
  • 00:02:00.030 --> 00:02:02.270
  • AFTERNOON HERE IN COLLEVILLE, TEXAS,
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:05.220
  • WHEREVER YOU'RE WATCHING AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:07.160
  • WHAT WE'RE DOING TODAY IS TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THE
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:10.200
  • PILLARS OF TRUTH THAT TRINITY BROADCASTING
  • 00:02:10.220 --> 00:02:13.220
  • IS BUILT UPON.
  • 00:02:13.240 --> 00:02:16.080
  • HOPE, GRACE, THE BLESSED LIFE,
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:20.080
  • LIVING IT IN A SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY WAY.
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:23.260
  • LEON FONTAINE, YOU'VE HELPED US KIND OF FRAME
  • 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:27.210
  • THIS SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY PHRASE,
  • 00:02:27.230 --> 00:02:31.010
  • SO BECAUSE IT IS OUR OWN VERNACULAR,
  • 00:02:31.030 --> 00:02:35.120
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT.
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:37.010
  • SO LET'S START WITH KIND OF STARTING TO UNPACK.
  • 00:02:37.030 --> 00:02:40.070
  • WHAT DO WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY LIVING A LIFE IN A
  • 00:02:40.090 --> 00:02:43.180
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY WAY?
  • 00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:45.080
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN PRACTICALITY?
  • 00:02:45.100 --> 00:02:47.150
  • - WHEN YOU ASK SOMEBODY WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:02:47.170 --> 00:02:52.090
  • IT'S AN INTERESTING QUESTION.
  • 00:02:52.110 --> 00:02:54.040
  • I WAS RAISED IN A WONDERFUL CHRISTIAN HOME,
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:56.270
  • PARENTS BOTH PASTORS, AND IN A SMALL TOWN WHERE I
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:03:00.210
  • WAS BEATEN UP REGULARLY AND RIDICULED FOR BEING A
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:04.080
  • CHRISTIAN, AND WITHOUT REALIZING IT DEVELOPED
  • 00:03:04.100 --> 00:03:06.170
  • THIS LIKE CHRISTIANS ARE THE LOWEST LITTLE SCARED
  • 00:03:06.190 --> 00:03:10.080
  • MICE RUNNING AROUND.
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:12.030
  • AND THEN AS I BEGAN TO GET INTO GOD'S WORD AND
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:14.280
  • MY HEROES WERE LIKE DAVID RUN THROUGH A TROOP
  • 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:18.120
  • LEAP OVER A WALL, MY HEROES WERE MOSES.
  • 00:03:18.140 --> 00:03:20.290
  • I HAVE A JEWISH FRIEND WHO SAYS ANYBODY CAN LEAD
  • 00:03:21.010 --> 00:03:23.150
  • 2 MILLION JEWS ANYWHERE. IS IT GENIUS?
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:25.290
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE INCREDIBLE HEROES AND
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:30.070
  • THEN YOU COME TO THE NEW TESTAMENT AND YOU SEE
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:32.050
  • MEN THAT WERE GONNA DIE, AND THEY KNEW IT,
  • 00:03:32.070 --> 00:03:34.200
  • FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST. AND THEN WE COME TO
  • 00:03:34.220 --> 00:03:36.240
  • TODAY AND WE KIND OF GO WHAT IS GOING ON?
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:40.040
  • AND I KNEW THAT I WANTED TO BE A CHRISTIAN BUT
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:43.150
  • I WANTED TO BE LIKE THE NAVY SEAL WHEN IT CAME TO
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:47.110
  • THE BATTLE, AND I WANTED TO BE THE MOST AMAZING
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:50.030
  • LOVER WHEN IT CAME TO MY WIFE.
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:51.250
  • I WANTED TO HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES WHEN I LOOKED
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:53.250
  • AT MY KIDS AND MY GRAND BABIES.
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:55.200
  • BUT I WANTED TO BE LIKE ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:57.230
  • WAS-- OH, I FORGET THAT MEL GIBSON ONE, THE PATRIOT.
  • 00:03:57.250 --> 00:04:01.040
  • - MATT CROUCH: BRAVEHEART?
  • 00:04:01.060 --> 00:04:02.110
  • - THE PATRIOT WHERE HE'S DAD OF ALL THESE KIDS
  • 00:04:02.130 --> 00:04:05.010
  • AND YOU DON'T MESS WITH THIS GUY.
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:07.180
  • HE WAS SO IN LOVE WITH HIS KIDS BUT HE WAS THE
  • 00:04:07.200 --> 00:04:09.130
  • MOST, NOT WICKED BUT POWERFUL.
  • 00:04:09.150 --> 00:04:11.230
  • WHEN I LOOK AT A CHRISTIAN TODAY,
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:13.220
  • I DON'T WANT TO BE THIS MEEK LITTLE PATHETIC
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:17.000
  • THING RUNNING AROUND, I'M A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:18.160
  • WOULD YOU COME TO CHURCH WITH ME?
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:20.000
  • BUT WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS, I DON'T LOOK AT A BABY IN
  • 00:04:20.020 --> 00:04:22.230
  • A MANGER. I DON'T WANT TO WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS,
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:24.210
  • SEE A GUY IN A DRESS WITH FLIP FLOPS AND LONG
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:27.030
  • BEAUTIFUL BROWN CURLY HAIR.
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:28.220
  • WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS, IT'S REVELATIONS 1 AND 2,
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:31.170
  • THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS,
  • 00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:34.040
  • AND WE ARE HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:04:34.060 --> 00:04:36.200
  • HE'S THE FIRSTBORN. WE'RE FAMILY.
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:38.120
  • SO WE LITERALLY OUGHT TO BE ON THIS PLANET
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:41.050
  • EQUIPPING AND DISCIPLING NATIONS IN EVERY AREA.
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:45.120
  • IT'S TO BE SPIRITUALLY ALIVE WITH HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:48.290
  • FLOWING THROUGH US UNTIL WE ARE,
  • 00:04:49.010 --> 00:04:51.050
  • SORRY, SUPER PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:53.070
  • AND THEN AT THE SAME TIME THAT THERE IS THIS
  • 00:04:53.090 --> 00:04:55.230
  • CONTEMPORARY ABILITY THAT WE RESPECT AND HONOR AND
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:59.190
  • CAN FLOW IN A CULTURE THAT IS ANTI US,
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:03.020
  • BUT WE CAN MOVE RIGHT INTO THAT CULTURE LIKE
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:05.030
  • JESUS DID AND BE LIGHT AND BE SALT.
  • 00:05:05.050 --> 00:05:08.050
  • IT IS-- TO ME IT IS THE WAY CHRISTIANITY IS
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:11.160
  • AND SHOULD BE. IT'S THE WAY JESUS WAS.
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:13.070
  • IT'S THE WAY THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS.
  • 00:05:13.090 --> 00:05:14.290
  • IT'S THE WAY I WANT TO BE.
  • 00:05:15.010 --> 00:05:16.280
  • WHEN I LOOK AT BEING SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY,
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:29.160
  • WHICH IS THE ABILITY TO IMPACT NATIONS,
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:32.000
  • THE ABILITY TO IMPACT THE BUSINESS WORLD, THE ARTS,
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:35.060
  • ETC, IT LOOKS LIKE WHAT JESUS SAYS,
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:38.170
  • AND THAT IS THAT WE ARE TO DISCIPLE NATIONS.
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:42.030
  • CHRISTIANS DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER WHEN WE JUST
  • 00:05:42.050 --> 00:05:44.090
  • SCREAM OBEY THE BIBLE.
  • 00:05:44.110 --> 00:05:46.070
  • CHRISTIANS HAVE AN ANSWER WHEN WE SHOW THEM WHAT IT
  • 00:05:46.090 --> 00:05:49.040
  • IS LIKE TO BE A PRIME MINISTER, A PRESIDENT,
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:52.010
  • WHO CAN HAVE POWER BUT NOT BE TAKEN IN BY IT.
  • 00:05:52.030 --> 00:05:55.290
  • WHEN WE LEARN TO LIVE OUT THIS INCREDIBLE SPIRIT
  • 00:05:56.010 --> 00:05:59.140
  • FILLED LIFE, THEN THE WORLD IS ATTRACTED TO US.
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:02.070
  • SO I HAVE ONE OF MY PET PEEVES IS PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:06:02.090 --> 00:06:06.010
  • CONTINUALLY PREACH ON THE END TIMES,
  • 00:06:06.030 --> 00:06:09.070
  • THAT JESUS IS COMING BACK,
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:10.180
  • AND I DON'T KNOW IF THEY MEAN TO,
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:12.080
  • BUT WHAT IT MEANS TO THE EMERGING GENERATION IS
  • 00:06:12.100 --> 00:06:14.250
  • THAT THE WORLD IS GETTING SO BAD,
  • 00:06:14.270 --> 00:06:16.130
  • WE'VE GOT NUCLEAR BOMBS, WE'VE GOT THE WATER BEING
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:19.000
  • DESTROYED, THERE'S HOLES IN THE OZONE LAYER,
  • 00:06:19.020 --> 00:06:21.060
  • WE'VE GOT MELTING ICE CAPS.
  • 00:06:21.080 --> 00:06:22.290
  • JESUS, COME RESCUE US FROM THIS WORLD OF WOE
  • 00:06:23.010 --> 00:06:26.030
  • AND TAKE US, AS THOUGH JESUS COMING BACK IS THE
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:28.290
  • ANSWER FOR A PATHETICALLY WIMPY REMNANT CHURCH.
  • 00:06:29.010 --> 00:06:32.010
  • AND WE'VE TAKEN THESE VERSES ALL OUT OF CONTEXT.
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:34.040
  • IF WE THE CHURCH ARE TO BE WITHOUT SPOT OR
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:36.220
  • WRINKLE, IF WE ARE THE VICTORIOUS CHURCH THEN WE
  • 00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:40.040
  • ARE NOT JUST TO BE PREACHING THE GOSPEL IN
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:42.060
  • NATIONS, WE ARE TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF NATIONS.
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:45.130
  • AND THE ONLY WAY TO DO THAT IS IF IN ALL OF
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:48.060
  • THESE AREAS OF SOCIETY MEN AND WOMEN WISE UP AND
  • 00:06:48.080 --> 00:06:52.140
  • THE WORLD IS IN AWE OF THEM, RESPECTS THEM.
  • 00:06:52.160 --> 00:06:56.240
  • THERE ARE MANY PREACHERS WHO BELIEVE THAT THEIR
  • 00:06:56.260 --> 00:06:58.200
  • CHURCH HAS GOT THE PRESENCE OF GOD SO
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:07:00.090
  • STRONG IN IT THAT IT REPELS PEOPLE,
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:02.160
  • BUT JESUS HAD THE PRESENCE OF GOD WITHOUT
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:04.220
  • MEASURE, AND IT SAYS THAT THE DRUNKS,
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:07.020
  • THE ADULTERERS, THE THIEVES, THE LIARS,
  • 00:07:07.040 --> 00:07:09.100
  • THEY WERE ATTRACTED TO THIS MAN.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.270
  • AND WHEN I LOOK AHEAD AND I SEE WHAT I BELIEVE
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:16.070
  • JESUS IS LOOKING FOR, IT WOULD BE US IN EVERY AREA
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:19.290
  • OF SOCIETY BEING THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL,
  • 00:07:20.010 --> 00:07:23.120
  • BEING ABOVE AND NOT BENEATH, BUT EVERY WEAPON FORMED
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:26.180
  • AGAINST US DOESN'T PROSPER.
  • 00:07:26.200 --> 00:07:28.090
  • PAUL PRAYED THAT WICKED AND EVIL MEN WOULDN'T
  • 00:07:28.110 --> 00:07:30.160
  • PROSPER AGAINST HIM BECAUSE ALL MEN DON'T
  • 00:07:30.180 --> 00:07:32.150
  • HAVE FAITH. SO IN A WORLD FILLED WITH OPPOSITION,
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:35.060
  • WHEN WE OPEN OUR MOUTH EVEN IN A DEBATES THAT
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:38.090
  • ARE NECESSARY, HE FILLS IT.
  • 00:07:38.110 --> 00:07:40.100
  • THE BRILLIANCE, THE POWER THE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:07:40.120 --> 00:07:43.090
  • GIFTEDNESS THAT IS ON THE EVERYDAY--NOT JUST ON THE
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:46.130
  • PASTORS AND PREACHERS AND THE TV EVANGELIST,
  • 00:07:46.150 --> 00:07:48.290
  • BUT WE ARE GONNA SEE BUSINESSMEN RISE UP WHO
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:51.120
  • ARE GONNA KNOW THE WORD AS GOOD AS PASTORS.
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:53.100
  • WE'RE GONNA SEE PEOPLE RISE UP IN THE ARTS THAT
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:55.090
  • ARE GONNA BE SO GIFTED THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.130
  • IN AWE OF THIS GIFTING.
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:58.090
  • BUT THERE'S SUCH A STRENGTH OF CHARACTER
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:00.160
  • BECAUSE OF THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY IS FILLED
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:03.210
  • WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD BUT ABLE TO USE AND THE
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:06.240
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS THE MOST CONTEMPORARY
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.290
  • FORCE ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:10.120
  • WHEN I LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE WITH MY KIDS
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:12.230
  • AND MY GRAND KIDS, I'M SO EXCITED BECAUSE THEY'RE
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:15.100
  • GETTING IT BETTER THAN I AM ALREADY.
  • 00:08:15.120 --> 00:08:17.130
  • MATT CROUCH: IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE, LEON,
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.180
  • THAT YOU REPRESENT IN OUR GENERATION WHAT DEMOS
  • 00:08:31.200 --> 00:08:38.200
  • SHAKARIAN REPRESENTED IN MY PARENT'S GENERATION.
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:42.110
  • AND SOME OF THOSE THAT ARE OLD ENOUGH AND HAVE
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:45.000
  • BEEN WATCHING TBN LONG ENOUGH REMEMBER
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:47.060
  • DEMOS SHAKARIAN, JUST A PATRIARCH OF THE FAITH
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:51.070
  • BACK IN THE 60S AND 70S AND THE HEYDAY OF WHAT
  • 00:08:51.090 --> 00:08:55.290
  • THE FULL GOSPEL BUSINESS MEN'S FELLOWSHIP WAS.
  • 00:08:56.010 --> 00:08:59.280
  • WHAT HE WAS SAYING IS HOLY SPIRIT IS CALLED
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:03.050
  • ALONGSIDE OF YOU THAT YOU ARE TO TAKE THE HOLY
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:06.170
  • SPIRIT WITH YOU WHEN YOU GO TO YOUR WORKPLACE,
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:10.010
  • THAT THE WAY TO GET THE EVANGELISM AND MINISTRY
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:14.150
  • DONE IS TO EQUIP EACH PERSON WITH THE
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:17.250
  • CONFIDENCE, THE FAITH AND THE ABILITY TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:22.180
  • THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE IN A CHURCH TO SEE A
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:25.180
  • MIRACLE. THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE IN A CHURCH.
  • 00:09:25.200 --> 00:09:27.100
  • YOU CAN BE ANYWHERE.
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:29.040
  • AND IT SEEMED LIKE DEMOS SHAKARIAN WAS TRYING TO
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:32.010
  • SET UP FULL GOSPEL BUSINESS MEN'S FELLOWSHIP
  • 00:09:32.030 --> 00:09:35.260
  • INTERNATIONAL SO THAT THE BUSINESSMEN WOULD BE THE
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:39.050
  • EVANGELISTS AND THE MINISTERS INTO THEIR
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:42.110
  • ENVIRONMENT, INTO THEIR WORKPLACE,
  • 00:09:42.130 --> 00:09:44.060
  • INTO MANY MORE PLACES OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.
  • 00:09:44.080 --> 00:09:47.060
  • SO IT SEEMS LIKE YOU'RE PUTTING A CONTEMPORARY
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:50.270
  • FRAMEWORK AROUND SOMETHING THAT JUST
  • 00:09:50.290 --> 00:09:54.060
  • NEEDED TO BE REKINDLED.
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.010
  • SO HOW DO WE TAKE THE OLD-FASHIONED IMAGERY OF
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:10:00.180
  • SWINGING FROM A CHANDELIER AND PUT IT
  • 00:10:00.200 --> 00:10:03.010
  • INTO THE BOARD ROOM AND THE HOSPITALS AND
  • 00:10:03.030 --> 00:10:06.040
  • THE MILITARY AND BUSINESS WORLD AND
  • 00:10:06.060 --> 00:10:08.160
  • HOW DO WE DO THAT?
  • 00:10:08.180 --> 00:10:10.030
  • - I WANT TO STAND OUT IN CULTURE BECAUSE THE
  • 00:10:10.050 --> 00:10:12.070
  • CULTURE IS WRONG, AND I DON'T WANT TO BE A SUB CULTURE.
  • 00:10:12.090 --> 00:10:15.050
  • I WANT TO BE A CULTURAL ARCHITECT.
  • 00:10:15.070 --> 00:10:17.110
  • SO WHEN I WALK INTO THEIR CULTURE AND THEY SEE HOW
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:19.230
  • I WALK IN THE BUSINESS WORLD THEY KIND OF GO,
  • 00:10:19.250 --> 00:10:21.160
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD!
  • 00:10:21.180 --> 00:10:22.280
  • THAT GUY'S NICE, IT'S WIN-WIN,
  • 00:10:23.000 --> 00:10:24.270
  • AND HE'S MAKING MILLIONS. WHAT IS WITH THAT GUY?
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:27.110
  • EVERYONE LIKES THIS GUY!
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:28.230
  • SO I THINK WE CAN WALK IN A FALLEN CULTURE WITH A
  • 00:10:28.250 --> 00:10:31.140
  • CULTURE OF CHRIST AND BE THE MOST
  • 00:10:31.160 --> 00:10:33.230
  • ATTRACTIVE THING GOING.
  • 00:10:33.250 --> 00:10:35.030
  • WHEN I TRAIN PASTORS AROUND THE WORLD AND WE
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:36.250
  • BEGIN TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:10:36.270 --> 00:10:38.280
  • THE MOVE OF THE SPIRIT, I USUALLY GET THIS PULL
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:41.200
  • BACK BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT THE HOLY SPIRIT TO
  • 00:10:41.220 --> 00:10:44.160
  • MAKE THEM DO CRAZY STUPID THINGS.
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:46.190
  • THERE ARE TIMES IN CHURCH WHEN I'VE SEEN PEOPLE DO
  • 00:10:46.210 --> 00:10:50.040
  • WILD, CRAZY THINGS AND I JUST CALM THE PEOPLE DOWN
  • 00:10:50.060 --> 00:10:53.160
  • AND SAY FOLKS, WHEN PEOPLE ARE TOUCHED BY
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:56.060
  • GOD, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE REACTION IS GONNA BE.
  • 00:10:56.080 --> 00:10:59.100
  • IT'S NOT HOLY SPIRIT DOING THIS TO THEM,
  • 00:10:59.120 --> 00:11:01.140
  • IT'S THEIR REACTION.
  • 00:11:01.160 --> 00:11:03.110
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY IS REALLY, IT'S NOT NEW.
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:06.280
  • IT'S JUST WE'RE PUTTING A VERNACULAR TO IT.
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:09.000
  • WE'RE PUTTING WORDS TO IT BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:11:09.020 --> 00:11:11.160
  • ESPECIALLY RELIGIOUS CHRISTIANS ARE THE FIRST
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:13.290
  • ONES WHEN YOU CHANGE A METHODOLOGY,
  • 00:11:14.010 --> 00:11:15.290
  • THEY BEGIN TO SCREAM COMPROMISE BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:11:16.010 --> 00:11:19.130
  • DOING SOMETHING OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE.
  • 00:11:19.150 --> 00:11:22.010
  • BUT OH, MY, IF WE COULD RECOGNIZE THAT EVERY
  • 00:11:22.030 --> 00:11:25.180
  • EMERGING GENERATION WILL HAVE NEW PROBLEMS,
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:27.260
  • THEY WILL HAVE NEW ISSUES,
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:29.190
  • THEY WILL HAVE NEW QUESTIONS,
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:31.150
  • THEY'LL EVEN HAVE A NEW CULTURE FOR THAT
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:33.200
  • GENERATION, THAT THE GOSPEL IS AMAZING AT
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:36.290
  • FITTING AND GOING TO THAT CULTURE.
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:39.190
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:49.150
  • - WHEN GOD WOULD MOVE IN CERTAIN SERVICES,
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:51.110
  • PEOPLE WOULD DO THINGS THAT WERE A LITTLE OUT OF
  • 00:11:51.130 --> 00:11:53.120
  • THE ORDINARY, AND PEOPLE WOULD RIGHT AWAY BE
  • 00:11:53.140 --> 00:11:55.120
  • AFRAID IF I'M AN ACCOUNTANT THAT HAS 30
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:11:58.130
  • ACCOUNTS IN THIS CITY OF MULTIMILLION DOLLAR
  • 00:11:58.150 --> 00:12:00.270
  • ORGANIZATIONS, AND THAT PERSON IS SOBBING AND
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:03.160
  • LAYING ON THE FLOOR, AND THAT PERSON IS JUMPING UP
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:06.030
  • AND DOWN SHRIEKING, I DON'T WANT HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:12:06.050 --> 00:12:09.040
  • TO DO THAT TO ME BECAUSE THEY'LL THINK,
  • 00:12:09.060 --> 00:12:11.240
  • WHAT ARE THEY GONNA THINK?
  • 00:12:11.260 --> 00:12:13.110
  • SO WHENEVER I TRAIN PASTORS,
  • 00:12:13.130 --> 00:12:15.040
  • I USE THIS ANALOGY.
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:16.200
  • IN A SERVICE, IF I WAS TO GIVE FIVE PEOPLE ON THAT
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:18.260
  • SERVICE A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS EACH,
  • 00:12:18.280 --> 00:12:21.260
  • ONE MOM HAS A CHILD WITH A DISEASE AND
  • 00:12:21.280 --> 00:12:24.230
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO CURE IN AMERICA,
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:26.260
  • BUT THERE'S SOMETHING NEW IN GERMANY.
  • 00:12:26.280 --> 00:12:28.180
  • SHE JUST CAN'T AFFORD TO GO.
  • 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:30.140
  • AND SHE SITS THERE WHEN I HAND HER A QUARTER OF A
  • 00:12:30.160 --> 00:12:32.200
  • MILLION DOLLARS AS A GIFT AND I SAY THIS IS YOURS.
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:35.090
  • AND SHE BREAKS DOWN, GRABS HER STOMACH AND
  • 00:12:35.110 --> 00:12:38.200
  • COLLAPSES ON THE FLOOR SOBBING WITH RELIEF AND
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:42.210
  • TEARS STREAMING DOWN HER FACE.
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:45.000
  • I MIGHT HAVE A BUSINESSMAN WHO IS ABOUT
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:47.040
  • TO LOSE HIS SMALL BUSINESS BECAUSE OF
  • 00:12:47.060 --> 00:12:49.240
  • MONEY, AND HE JUST NEEDS SOMETHING TO GET HIM
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:51.190
  • THROUGH THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO,
  • 00:12:51.210 --> 00:12:53.120
  • AND I HAND HIM A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS AND HE
  • 00:12:53.140 --> 00:12:55.230
  • JUST SITS DOWN AND HE GOES TO THIS CATATONIC
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.200
  • STATE IGNORING EVERYBODY AND JUST STARING INTO SPACE.
  • 00:12:57.220 --> 00:13:02.060
  • IF I GIVE THAT MONEY TO A PERSON OVER HERE LOSING
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:04.080
  • THEIR HOME AND DOESN'T KNOW WHERE THEY'RE GONNA
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:06.130
  • GO AND SHE GETS ON A CHAIR AND WAVES HER COAT
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:09.080
  • AROUND SCREAMING, LOOK!
  • 00:13:09.100 --> 00:13:11.030
  • NONE OF THOSE DID HOLY SPIRIT DO TO THEM BUT
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:15.010
  • IT'S THEIR REACTION TO THE BEAUTIFUL GIFT.
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:18.160
  • AND IF PEOPLE WOULD LEARN THAT PEOPLE ARE UNIQUE
  • 00:13:18.180 --> 00:13:21.060
  • AND DIFFERENT. SOME MIGHT BAWL AND SQUALL.
  • 00:13:21.080 --> 00:13:23.290
  • SOME MIGHT GET UP AND SHRIEK LIKE A BABOON,
  • 00:13:24.010 --> 00:13:27.090
  • BUT IT'S WHAT, IT'S THE PRESENCE OF GOD TOUCHING
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:30.200
  • THEM AND THEM NOT KNOWING HOW TO RESPOND.
  • 00:13:30.220 --> 00:13:33.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE SPIRIT OF THE PROPHET IS
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:36.150
  • SUBJECT TO THE PROPHET.
  • 00:13:36.170 --> 00:13:38.100
  • SO I'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING CRAZY,
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:40.060
  • I'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING WEIRD,
  • 00:13:40.080 --> 00:13:41.180
  • AND GOD HAS TOUCHED ME SO DEEPLY AND DONE SO MANY
  • 00:13:41.200 --> 00:13:45.080
  • THINGS FROM RAISING DEAD PEOPLE TO DOING MIRACLES
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:47.290
  • OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, TO TOUCHING ME IN SUCH AN
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:50.110
  • OVERWHELMING WAY AT THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:52.120
  • HEARTACHE IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:54.000
  • AND PROBABLY THE BIGGEST THING I'VE DONE WAS TO
  • 00:13:54.020 --> 00:13:56.160
  • TEAR UP AND JUST WEEP IN HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:13:59.030
  • SO PEOPLE DON'T HAVE TO BE AFRAID THAT HOLY
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:01.100
  • SPIRIT IS GOING TO DO OR MAKE THEM DO SOMETHING
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:05.020
  • THAT IS OUT OF THEIR CONTROL.
  • 00:14:05.040 --> 00:14:07.030
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR HELPER,
  • 00:14:07.050 --> 00:14:09.010
  • NOT OUR CONTROLLER.
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:10.250
  • HOLY SPIRIT COMES ALONGSIDE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:14:10.270 --> 00:14:13.080
  • WE CHOOSE TO DO AND ASSISTS US.
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:15.270
  • HE DOESN'T GRAB US AND DRAG US KICKING AND
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:18.120
  • SCREAMING INTO THE THINGS WE SHOULD DO.
  • 00:14:18.140 --> 00:14:20.230
  • AND WHEN MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE DEVELOPED GOOD
  • 00:14:20.250 --> 00:14:23.030
  • NAMES, GOOD REPUTATIONS, GOOD COMPANIES RECOGNIZE
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:26.040
  • THAT HOLY SPIRIT IS GONNA COMPLIMENT EVERYTHING YOU
  • 00:14:26.060 --> 00:14:29.130
  • DO AND TAKE YOU TO A SUPERNATURAL PLACE OF
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:32.070
  • SUCCESS, AND HE'LL MAKE YOU MORE SPIRIT
  • 00:14:32.090 --> 00:14:34.230
  • CONTEMPORARY THAN YOU EVEN ARE TODAY,
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:37.000
  • IT'S PRETTY AWESOME.
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:39.090
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:41.200
  • I HAVE FOUND THAT ONCE I JUST HIT THAT SWEET
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:44.120
  • SPOT WHERE MY BRAIN JUST DUMPS THE STUFF I'VE GOT
  • 00:14:44.140 --> 00:14:47.090
  • TO DO AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IN ME GIVES ME ONE VERSE,
  • 00:14:47.110 --> 00:14:51.230
  • LEON, HOW MUCH DO YOU READ A DAY?
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:53.070
  • I FOUND IT'S NOT HOW MUCH I READ,
  • 00:14:53.090 --> 00:14:56.010
  • IT'S FINDING THAT VERSE THAT TOUCHES ME.
  • 00:14:56.030 --> 00:14:58.290
  • SO I'LL JUST READ THROUGH THE WORD AND I'M READING
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:01.100
  • THROUGH EPHESIANS CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:03.130
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS VERSUS STOPS ME.
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:05.270
  • IT'S WHERE IT TALKS ABOUT BE STRONG.
  • 00:15:05.290 --> 00:15:08.190
  • I'M TRYING TO BE AS STRONG AS I CAN, GOD.
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:10.090
  • NO, NO, IN THE LORD, LEON. IN THE LORD.
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:13.100
  • AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
  • 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:16.090
  • HAVE I BEEN ON MY OWN ENERGY? AM I STRESSED,
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:19.010
  • AM I UNHAPPY, AM I FREAKING OUT?
  • 00:15:19.030 --> 00:15:21.090
  • AM I TRYING TO FIGURE THIS PROBLEM OUT?
  • 00:15:21.110 --> 00:15:22.220
  • AM I FEELING PUSHED ON ALL SIDES?
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:24.120
  • AM I GETTING SHORT WITH MY RELATIONSHIPS?
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:26.000
  • AND MY BODY, AM I TIRED? PHYSICALLY?
  • 00:15:26.020 --> 00:15:29.060
  • OH, OKAY GOD. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:35.240
  • I WANT TO BE STRONG IN YOUR PRESENCE.
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:37.200
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENCE.
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:39.020
  • AND THERE'S JUST A FAITH THAT HITS YOU.
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:41.020
  • AND IT'S LIKE IT JUST BEGINS TO RISE UP WHICH
  • 00:15:41.040 --> 00:15:43.120
  • IS IN YOU ALL THE TIME, IT BEGINS TO RISE UP IN
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:45.180
  • YOUR MIND. YOU CAN FEEL IT TOUCHING YOUR BODY.
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:47.260
  • THERE'S TIMES I'LL GET UP AND MY MIND IS CLEARED,
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:50.180
  • THE ENERGY AND THE STRENGTH IN MY BODY.
  • 00:15:50.200 --> 00:15:52.140
  • HOW DOES THAT WORK WHEN IT'S FROM THE SPIRIT REALM?
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:54.270
  • I DON'T KNOW, BUT THE SPIRIT REALM DOMINATES
  • 00:15:54.290 --> 00:15:57.070
  • ALL OTHER REALMS, THE PHYSICAL REALM,
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:59.090
  • THE SOULISH REALM ARE ALL DOMINATED BY THE SPIRIT
  • 00:15:59.110 --> 00:16:02.230
  • REALM. I DON'T MEAN IN A NEGATIVE WAY.
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:04.080
  • SO THAT IS WHY YOU BEING STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:09.170
  • THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT IS THE SPIRIT SIDE
  • 00:16:09.190 --> 00:16:12.190
  • OF SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY.
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:15.030
  • 00:16:15.050 --> 00:16:20.280
  • JESUS WAS THE MOST CONTEMPORARY PERSON THAT
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.250
  • EVER WALKED THE PLANET.
  • 00:16:23.270 --> 00:16:25.170
  • HE UPSET THE SADDUCEES, THE PHARISEES, THE SCRIBES.
  • 00:16:25.190 --> 00:16:28.100
  • THEY WERE TICKED OFF AT THIS GUY WHO WOULD DO
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:30.240
  • THINGS AGAINST THE LAW AND LOVED PEOPLE
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:33.020
  • AND CARE ABOUT PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:34.200
  • WHAT HE DRESSED IN WAS SO BEAUTIFUL THAT THEY
  • 00:16:34.220 --> 00:16:36.170
  • DIDN'T WANT TO RIP IT WHEN HE WAS CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:16:36.190 --> 00:16:38.180
  • HE WOULD SPEAK IN A WAY THAT CONFOUNDED BOTH

  • RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND ATTRACTED ADULTERESSES
  • 00:16:40.260 --> 00:16:43.250
  • AND LIARS AND THIEVES AND DRUNKS.
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:46.000
  • THEY SURROUNDED HIM AND SAID JESUS WAS THE

  • SUPPORT SPIRITUALLY ALIVE CONTEMPORARY FORCE.
  • 00:16:48.140 --> 00:16:51.130
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL, WHEN HE WENT TO MARS HILL AND
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:53.260
  • QUOTED OTHER PEOPLE FROM OTHER RELIGIONS EVEN IN
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:58.030
  • ORDER TO BEGIN TO SHARE WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:58.050 --> 00:17:00.120
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS THE MOST CONTEMPORARY FORCE GOING.
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:03.030
  • AND ANY TIME YOU LOOK AT A DENOMINATION,
  • 00:17:03.050 --> 00:17:05.230
  • A MOVE OF GOD THAT TOUCHED OUR PLANET,
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:08.110
  • IF YOU STUDY YOUR HISTORY,
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:10.000
  • YOU WILL FIND THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:12.080
  • SPIRITUALLY ALIVE, A PURPOSE WITHIN PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:15.120
  • AND THAT WHEN THEY SHARED IT IN WHATEVER THEY DID,
  • 00:17:15.140 --> 00:17:18.120
  • THAT IT WAS CONTEMPORARY FOR THE TIME.
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:21.040
  • TO MOVE OUT OF THE CHURCHES INTO THE TENTS
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:23.090
  • WITH THE SAWDUST FLOORS AND TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:26.100
  • PEOPLE WERE JUST, I MEAN BY THE THOUSANDS THEY
  • 00:17:26.120 --> 00:17:29.010
  • PACKED OUT THOSE TENTS.
  • 00:17:29.030 --> 00:17:30.250
  • AND THEN WHEN DEMOS SHAKARIAN CAME ALONG WITH
  • 00:17:30.270 --> 00:17:32.240
  • THE BUSINESS PEOPLE AND BEGAN TO HAVE MEN SHARE
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:34.200
  • THEIR TESTIMONIES IN THE LARGEST BALL ROOMS OF
  • 00:17:34.220 --> 00:17:37.110
  • HOTEL ROOMS, AND PEOPLE CAME IN AND PACKED OUT
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:40.290
  • TO HEAR BUSINESSMEN SHARE THEIR STORIES,
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:43.160
  • AND THEY GOT SAVED AND SPIRIT FILLED AND SET
  • 00:17:43.180 --> 00:17:45.270
  • FREE. THAT WAS SO SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY FOR ITS TIME.
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:49.150
  • AND THE LIST GOES ON.
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:51.140
  • IT'S BASICALLY SAYING THAT SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:54.220
  • IS HOW HOLY SPIRIT OPERATES ALWAYS.
  • 00:17:54.240 --> 00:17:58.110
  • IF SOMEONE BEGINS TO OPERATE IN THE THINGS OF
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:18:01.120
  • GOD, EVEN IF IT'S A LEGITIMATE MIRACLE,
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:04.070
  • IF THEY DO IT IN A WAY THAT OFFENDS AND CAUSES
  • 00:18:04.090 --> 00:18:06.130
  • CRAZINESS, THAT'S NOT HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:06.150 --> 00:18:09.040
  • THAT IS JUST THEM RELEASING WHAT THEY SENSE
  • 00:18:09.060 --> 00:18:13.140
  • AND MINISTERING TO PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR OWN MIND,
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:16.070
  • AND EVEN IF IT'S GOD FLOWING THROUGH THEM,
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:18.020
  • I MEAN A TEXAN'S GONNA HAVE A TWANG,
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:20.120
  • AND A CHINESE PERSON IS GONNA--SO WHO WE ARE,
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:23.230
  • HOLY SPIRIT FLOWS THROUGH US.
  • 00:18:23.250 --> 00:18:25.180
  • SO SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY HAS ALWAYS BEEN.
  • 00:18:25.200 --> 00:18:28.190
  • WE'VE SIMPLY PUT A VERNACULAR,
  • 00:18:28.210 --> 00:18:30.070
  • WE'VE PUT A LANGUAGE BECAUSE TODAY THERE ARE
  • 00:18:30.090 --> 00:18:33.000
  • PEOPLE SO ENTRENCHED IN THEIR METHODOLOGY,
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:36.000
  • THEY DON'T REALIZE THAT IT HAS LOST ITS POWER.
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:39.250

  • THE GOSPEL IS ALWAYS POWERFUL.
  • 00:18:50.010 --> 00:18:52.150
  • IT WILL NEVER CHANGE.
  • 00:18:52.170 --> 00:18:53.280
  • BUT THE METHODS THAT WE USE, THE ANALOGIES,

  • THE STORIES, THE THINGS THAT WE USE WILL ALWAYS
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:59.210
  • BE CHANGING FOR EVERY EMERGING GENERATION.

  • SCENE, THE SIRENS WERE TURNED OFF, AND I
  • 00:19:50.100 --> 00:19:52.140
  • COULDN'T HELP BUT NOTICE HOW EERILY QUIET IT WAS.
  • 00:19:52.160 --> 00:19:57.150
  • THEN IN THE DISTANCE, I COULD HEAR THE FAINT
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:04.180
  • SOUND OF A CHILD CRYING.
  • 00:20:04.200 --> 00:20:06.250
  • I NOTICED IT AS SOON AS WE PULLED UP.
  • 00:20:06.270 --> 00:20:08.280
  • A LITTLE TODDLER NO MORE THAN ONE YEAR OLD SITTING
  • 00:20:09.000 --> 00:20:11.260
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY SURROUNDED BY
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:14.130
  • BROKEN GLASS AND DEBRIS.
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:17.150
  • NO ONE DARED TO GO NEAR HIM FOR FEAR OF DOING HIM

  • MORE HARM THAN GOOD.
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:24.030
  • AN OVERTURNED VAN LAY TO ONE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.
  • 00:20:35.190 --> 00:20:38.100
  • ITS SIDE LITERALLY BLOWN OUT.
  • 00:20:38.120 --> 00:20:42.270
  • AND VICTIMS WERE SCATTERED FROM ONE SIDE
  • 00:20:51.050 --> 00:20:53.250
  • OF THE HIGHWAY TO THE OTHER LIKE RAG DOLLS

  • IN CHURCH AS A PASTOR'S KID COULD HAVE PREPARED
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:06.270
  • ME FOR THE SIGHTS, SOUNDS AND SMELLS
  • 00:21:06.290 --> 00:21:10.010
  • THAT FLOODED MY SENSES.

  • THERE'S NOTHING PEACEFUL OR ANOINTED
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:19.090
  • ABOUT THAT SCENE, BUT IT STARTED ME ON A JOURNEY
  • 00:21:19.110 --> 00:21:22.020
  • WHEN I SAID GOD, IF THERE'S EVER A PLACE THAT
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:24.230
  • I NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO RELEASE THE POWER OF HOLY
  • 00:21:24.250 --> 00:21:28.170
  • SPIRIT, IT WOULD BE IN THE DITCHES, THE
  • 00:21:28.190 --> 00:21:31.120
  • INTENSIVE CARE ROOMS, THE RESUSCITATION ROOMS OF
  • 00:21:31.140 --> 00:21:34.100
  • THIS HOSPITAL, SO THAT BEGAN THE JOURNEY OF ME
  • 00:21:34.120 --> 00:21:37.120
  • LOVING WHAT GOD WAS DOING IN THE PENTECOSTAL
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:40.010
  • CHARISMATIC MOVES, BUT AT THE SAME TIME SAYING
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:43.170
  • WE'VE GOT TO MOVE IT FROM THE CHURCH AND FROM THE

  • 00:25:58.110 --> 00:26:01.000
  • PROFESSOR WHO GOT ME INTO TEACHING LEADERSHIP IN
  • 00:26:01.020 --> 00:26:04.170
  • THE UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA AND SPEND THE
  • 00:26:04.190 --> 00:26:07.260
  • AFTERNOON WITH THE TOP PEOPLE WHO BEGAN TO ASK
  • 00:26:07.280 --> 00:26:10.120
  • ME QUESTIONS AND THEN QUESTIONS ABOUT GOD, AND
  • 00:26:10.140 --> 00:26:13.040
  • I SAID AM I ALLOWED TO ANSWER THESE?
  • 00:26:13.060 --> 00:26:14.250
  • WE HAD THIS AMAZING TIME BECAUSE HE'S SO RESPECTED
  • 00:26:14.270 --> 00:26:18.010
  • AT THE TOP, TRAVELS THE WORLD AS A PROFESSOR AND
  • 00:26:18.030 --> 00:26:20.270
  • EVERYONE KNOWS HE'S A MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:26:20.290 --> 00:26:22.180
  • SO IN EACH OF THEIR AREAS, THE MIRACULOUS
  • 00:26:22.200 --> 00:26:26.130
  • COMES IN WHETHER IT'S THE HEALING OF A CHILD IN THE
  • 00:26:26.150 --> 00:26:28.200
  • WORST CRISIS A MOM COULD EVER HANDLE, OR WHETHER
  • 00:26:28.220 --> 00:26:31.020
  • IT'S A BUSINESS MAN TRYING TO THINK OF A WAY
  • 00:26:31.040 --> 00:26:33.250
  • TO GET HOLD OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IS TO MAKE
  • 00:26:33.270 --> 00:26:35.220
  • THIS DEAL GO, OR WHETHER IT'S SITTING IN A BOARD
  • 00:26:35.240 --> 00:26:37.270
  • ROOM TRYING TO CONVINCE THE OTHER SIDE TO SELL
  • 00:26:37.290 --> 00:26:40.030
  • YOU THE PROPERTY AND THE LANDS YOU SO DESPERATELY
  • 00:26:40.050 --> 00:26:42.190
  • NEED, AND HE GUIDES YOU WITH WHAT TO SAY THAT
  • 00:26:42.210 --> 00:26:45.110
  • YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE WITHOUT THAT
  • 00:26:45.130 --> 00:26:47.120
  • WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:26:47.140 --> 00:26:48.240
  • SO IN OUR CHURCH, WHAT'S EXCITING IS EVERY SUNDAY
  • 00:26:48.260 --> 00:26:52.000
  • AND THE FIVE OR SIX SITES OF CHURCH THAT WE DO,
  • 00:26:52.020 --> 00:26:54.250
  • THEY READ OFF A LIST OF THE MIRACLES THAT
  • 00:26:54.270 --> 00:26:57.090
  • TOOK PLACE THAT WEEK.
  • 00:26:57.110 --> 00:26:58.220
  • PEOPLE JUST SEND THEM IN, DROP THEM OFF IN PIECES
  • 00:26:58.240 --> 00:27:00.230
  • OF PAPER, EMAIL THEM TO US AND THE LEADER WILL
  • 00:27:00.250 --> 00:27:03.050
  • WELCOME EVERYBODY AND AT SOME POINT IN THE SERVICE
  • 00:27:03.070 --> 00:27:05.130
  • THANK GOD FOR THE MIRACLES THAT
  • 00:27:05.150 --> 00:27:07.030
  • TOOK PLACE THIS WEEK.
  • 00:27:07.050 --> 00:27:08.140
  • IN 22 YEARS OF PASTORING SPRINGS CHURCH, WE HAVE
  • 00:27:08.160 --> 00:27:11.190
  • NOT HAD A SUNDAY THAT WE LITERALLY HAD TO TAKE THE
  • 00:27:11.210 --> 00:27:14.130
  • LIST AND PARE IT DOWN SO WE DON'T TAKE TOO MUCH
  • 00:27:14.150 --> 00:27:16.210
  • TIME AND JUST SHARE JUST THE FIVE TO SEVEN
  • 00:27:16.230 --> 00:27:19.010
  • MIRACLES AND IN ALL OF THOSE MIRACLES,
  • 00:27:19.030 --> 00:27:21.150
  • NEVER HAVE I PRAYED FOR ANY OF THEM.
  • 00:27:21.170 --> 00:27:24.080
  • THAT'S WHAT EXCITES ME.
  • 00:27:24.100 --> 00:27:26.200
  • I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM
  • 00:27:28.010 --> 00:27:30.050
  • WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
  • 00:27:30.070 --> 00:27:32.130
  • MATT CROUCH: WHAT IS THE BIGGEST, LET'S SAY, HURDLE
  • 00:27:34.040 --> 00:27:36.180
  • THAT YOU HAVE FOUND OF PEOPLE RECEIVING THIS
  • 00:27:36.200 --> 00:27:39.060
  • ABILITY AND THIS-- NOT NEW BUT THIS TEACHING.
  • 00:27:39.080 --> 00:27:44.200
  • - I BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU HEAR TRUTH THAT YOU
  • 00:27:44.220 --> 00:27:48.110
  • DON'T PUT INTO PRACTICE IT CREATES
  • 00:27:48.130 --> 00:27:50.200
  • DOUBT AND UNBELIEF.
  • 00:27:50.220 --> 00:27:53.090
  • AND THIS IS WHERE WE HAVE THE FATTEST LITTLE BABY
  • 00:27:53.110 --> 00:27:55.230
  • CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE IN OUR CHURCHES WITH THE
  • 00:27:55.250 --> 00:27:57.210
  • GREATEST TEACHERS THAT EVER WALKED THE PLANET.
  • 00:27:57.230 --> 00:27:59.240
  • I MEAN, LOOK AT OUR TV, IT'S FILLED WITH
  • 00:27:59.260 --> 00:28:01.250
  • INCREDIBLE TEACHING, BUT FOR SOME REASON PEOPLE
  • 00:28:01.270 --> 00:28:05.010
  • AREN'T EMBRACING IT, AND SO ONE OF THE KEYS, AND
  • 00:28:05.030 --> 00:28:08.280
  • THERE'S SO MANY WE COVER IN THE BOOK, BUT ONE OF
  • 00:28:09.000 --> 00:28:10.160
  • THE KEYS THAT CHRISTIANS NEED TO HEAR IS THAT IF
  • 00:28:10.180 --> 00:28:13.100
  • YOU DON'T PRACTICE PUTTING ON, PUTTING OFF,
  • 00:28:13.120 --> 00:28:17.130
  • THAT YOU WILL BE A BELIEVER FILLED WITH
  • 00:28:17.150 --> 00:28:20.120
  • DOUBT TO ANY OF YOUR ABILITIES.
  • 00:28:20.140 --> 00:28:22.260
  • AND SO AS A PARAMEDIC, WHEN I BEGAN TO SEE THE
  • 00:28:22.280 --> 00:28:25.090
  • HURT AND THE HEARTACHE, IT'S LIKE THIS LITTLE
  • 00:28:25.110 --> 00:28:29.050
  • WONDERFUL 19 YEAR OLD CHRISTIAN BOY, IT'S LIKE
  • 00:28:29.070 --> 00:28:31.270
  • THE INSULATION CAME OFF MY HEART WHEN I WATCHED
  • 00:28:31.290 --> 00:28:34.170
  • KIDS SAY GOODBYE TO A MOM AND I HAD TO BE THERE TO
  • 00:28:34.190 --> 00:28:37.170
  • WRAP HER BODY. IT WAS PART OF MY JOB.
  • 00:28:37.190 --> 00:28:39.250
  • OR AT ACCIDENT SCENES TELLING THE MOM I CAN'T
  • 00:28:39.270 --> 00:28:42.110
  • EVEN WORK ON YOUR CHILD, HE'S OBVIOUSLY GONE.
  • 00:28:42.130 --> 00:28:45.000
  • IT JUST RIPS THE HEART.
  • 00:28:45.020 --> 00:28:48.170
  • SO I LIKE STAYING UN-INSULATED WITH MY HEART.
  • 00:28:48.190 --> 00:28:55.240
  • THE WIRES THAT WE HAVE RUNNING AROUND THE STUDIO
  • 00:28:55.260 --> 00:28:58.050
  • HERE, IF YOU BITE IT, IT'S NOT GONNA DO
  • 00:28:58.070 --> 00:29:00.080
  • ANYTHING TO YOU.
  • 00:29:00.100 --> 00:29:01.120
  • BUT YOU PEAL THAT RUBBER OFF AND GET THE
  • 00:29:01.140 --> 00:29:02.270
  • INSULATION OFF THAT WIRE AND YOU GET DOWN TO THAT
  • 00:29:02.290 --> 00:29:05.000
  • COPPER OR THAT WIRE, YOU'LL GET THE SHOCK OF
  • 00:29:05.020 --> 00:29:06.220
  • YOUR LIFE AT THE POWER THAT'S
  • 00:29:06.240 --> 00:29:08.080
  • RUNNING THROUGH THERE.
  • 00:29:08.100 --> 00:29:09.170
  • IT'S LIKE THE HEART OF A HUMAN BEING WHICH THE
  • 00:29:09.190 --> 00:29:11.030
  • BIBLE SAYS RELEASES ALL THE FORCES OF LIFE,
  • 00:29:11.050 --> 00:29:14.030
  • HEALING AND PROSPERITY AND BLESSING AND PEACE
  • 00:29:14.050 --> 00:29:16.130
  • AND JOY, IT'S LIKE IT'S JUST INSULATED WITH A
  • 00:29:16.150 --> 00:29:19.010
  • WHOLE BUNCH OF RELIGIOUS DATA, AND WHERE WE HAVE
  • 00:29:19.030 --> 00:29:22.050
  • ALL THIS STUFF, IT SAYS THE POWER OF GOD IS OF
  • 00:29:22.070 --> 00:29:25.020
  • NO EFFECT BECAUSE OF OUR JUST TRADITIONS.
  • 00:29:25.040 --> 00:29:29.140
  • REGARDLESS OF WHAT DENOMINATION WE ARE,
  • 00:29:29.160 --> 00:29:31.250
  • WE'VE BECOME TRADITIONAL, WE HAVE ANSWERS, WE ARGUE
  • 00:29:31.270 --> 00:29:34.020
  • WITH THE BAPTISTS AND PENTECOSTALS AND
  • 00:29:34.040 --> 00:29:35.290
  • THAT'S THE WAY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE.
  • 00:29:36.010 --> 00:29:38.020
  • FOR ME, I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF SEVEN YEARS AS
  • 00:29:38.040 --> 00:29:41.140
  • A PASTOR I HAD TO SUPPORT MYSELF OF WALKING INTO,
  • 00:29:41.160 --> 00:29:44.100
  • I WORKED THE O.R.'S, THE RESUS ROOMS, THE DITCHES.
  • 00:29:44.120 --> 00:29:47.100
  • THEN WHEN I WAS A PASTOR, I WENT INTO BOARD ROOMS
  • 00:29:47.120 --> 00:29:49.240
  • WITH MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR DEALS, AND HOW DO YOU
  • 00:29:49.260 --> 00:29:51.290
  • HANDLE HUNDREDS OF STAFF AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:29:52.010 --> 00:29:55.040
  • IN VOLUNTEER STRUCTURES, AND I FOUND THAT THE
  • 00:29:55.060 --> 00:29:57.190
  • POWER OF GOD WAS THERE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:29:57.210 --> 00:30:01.050
  • WE THINK THAT POWER WAS TO SPEAK IN TONGUES OR WE
  • 00:30:01.070 --> 00:30:04.030
  • THINK THAT POWER WAS TO HEAL A FEW SICK PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:04.050 --> 00:30:07.090
  • IF YOU GO TO THAT WORD IN THE STRONG'S, IT WILL GO
  • 00:30:07.110 --> 00:30:10.080
  • A TO F, AND IT WILL SAY HERE'S WHAT THIS POWER
  • 00:30:10.100 --> 00:30:12.160
  • WILL DO IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:30:12.180 --> 00:30:14.080
  • AND THE FIRST THING IT SAYS IS IT IS AN INHERENT
  • 00:30:14.100 --> 00:30:16.110
  • POWER THAT IS WITHIN YOU THAT LITERALLY IS YOURS
  • 00:30:16.130 --> 00:30:18.150
  • TO RELEASE. THAT'S THE FIRST DEFINITION.
  • 00:30:18.170 --> 00:30:20.170
  • SECOND THING IT SAYS IS THIS POWER IS A POWER
  • 00:30:20.190 --> 00:30:22.260
  • GIVEN TO YOU TO LIVE MORALLY EXCELLENT.
  • 00:30:22.280 --> 00:30:26.050
  • THIS IS A POWER GIVEN TO YOU IT SAYS TO HANDLE
  • 00:30:26.070 --> 00:30:28.210
  • WEALTH AND FINANCES.
  • 00:30:28.230 --> 00:30:30.150
  • FOR PEOPLE TO SAY CHRISTIANS CAN'T HANDLE
  • 00:30:30.170 --> 00:30:32.010
  • WEALTH, NO, NO, NO THIS POWER THAT IS GIVEN TO US
  • 00:30:32.030 --> 00:30:34.140
  • THROUGH HOLY SPIRIT, IT SAYS IT IS GIVEN TO US TO
  • 00:30:34.160 --> 00:30:36.270
  • HANDLE ARMIES AND BIG NUMBERS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:36.290 --> 00:30:39.290
  • IT'S GIVEN-- IT BEGINS TO LIST ALL OF THE THINGS,
  • 00:30:40.010 --> 00:30:43.140
  • NOT THAT PASTORS, WELL PASTORS DEAL WITH IT BUT
  • 00:30:43.160 --> 00:30:45.290
  • THAT A BUSINESSMAN WOULD DEAL WITH, THAT A MOM
  • 00:30:46.010 --> 00:30:48.150
  • WOULD DEAL WITH, AND SO AS I BEGAN TO TEACH OUR
  • 00:30:48.170 --> 00:30:51.220
  • CHURCH, THEY BEGAN TO HAVE A SENSE OF THE
  • 00:30:51.240 --> 00:30:54.040
  • TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
  • 00:30:54.060 --> 00:30:56.110
  • WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST AND YOU
  • 00:30:56.130 --> 00:30:58.160
  • BECOME ALIVE WITH HIS PRESENCE, HIS POWER, HIS
  • 00:30:58.180 --> 00:31:01.040
  • PEACE, HIS JOY, HIS HEALING, THE GIFTS OF THE
  • 00:31:01.060 --> 00:31:03.240
  • SPIRIT READY TO FLOW OUT OF YOU INTO OTHER
  • 00:31:03.260 --> 00:31:05.200
  • PEOPLE'S LIVES, YOU BETTER LEARN HOW TO
  • 00:31:05.220 --> 00:31:08.020
  • OPERATE THIS THING. YOU'RE DIFFERENT.
  • 00:31:08.040 --> 00:31:10.130
  • SO IT'S NOT PUTTING OFF THE OLD NATURE, I JUST
  • 00:31:10.150 --> 00:31:12.180
  • NEED TO LEARN A NEW, I NEED A NEW DOWNLOAD OF
  • 00:31:12.200 --> 00:31:15.020
  • SOFTWARE TO MY HARDWARE.
  • 00:31:15.040 --> 00:31:17.000
  • WHEN WE GIVE OUR LIVES TO JESUS, IT'S NOT HIM
  • 00:31:17.020 --> 00:31:20.080
  • MAKING BAD PEOPLE GOOD.
  • 00:31:20.100 --> 00:31:22.250
  • IT'S HIM MAKING DEAD PEOPLE ALIVE.
  • 00:31:22.270 --> 00:31:25.290
  • AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THAT, YOU COME
  • 00:31:26.010 --> 00:31:28.070
  • ALIVE WITH THE VERY PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:31:28.090 --> 00:31:30.040
  • WE NEED TO LITERALLY GO BACK TO THE NEW COVENANT
  • 00:31:30.060 --> 00:31:33.100
  • AND WE NEED TO EMBRACE AND PUT IT ON.
  • 00:31:33.120 --> 00:31:36.030
  • THIS IS WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:31:36.050 --> 00:31:37.100
  • AND HOW DO YOU PUT IT ON?
  • 00:31:37.120 --> 00:31:38.260
  • EVERY TIME YOU READ A VERSE, THIS IS WHO YOU
  • 00:31:38.280 --> 00:31:40.280
  • ARE, YOU GO I RECEIVE THAT BECAUSE IF
  • 00:31:41.000 --> 00:31:43.040
  • YOU DON'T MIX FAITH WITH WHAT YOU READ,
  • 00:31:43.060 --> 00:31:46.120
  • IT PROFITS YOU NOTHING.
  • 00:31:46.140 --> 00:31:48.050
  • YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:31:49.110 --> 00:31:51.130
  • BUT IF THE SALT HAS BECOME TASTELESS, HOW CAN
  • 00:31:51.150 --> 00:31:53.260
  • IT BE MADE SALTY AGAIN?
  • 00:31:53.280 --> 00:31:55.290
  • IT IS NO LONGER GOOD FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT TO BE
  • 00:31:56.010 --> 00:31:58.290
  • THROWN OUT AND TRAMPLED UNDER FOOT BY MEN.
  • 00:31:59.010 --> 00:32:02.070
  • YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:32:02.090 --> 00:32:04.100
  • A CITY SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN.
  • 00:32:04.120 --> 00:32:07.140
  • WHEN WE LOOK AT BELIEVERS BEING A LIGHT,
  • 00:32:09.130 --> 00:32:13.020
  • BEING SALT, WE'VE GOT TO CHANGE THE WAY
  • 00:32:13.040 --> 00:32:17.070
  • CHURCH IS DONE.
  • 00:32:17.090 --> 00:32:18.240
  • WE'VE GOT TO BE-- WE'VE GOT TO SHOW THEM THAT
  • 00:32:18.260 --> 00:32:21.120
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS WITHIN THEM AND THAT THEY DON'T
  • 00:32:21.140 --> 00:32:24.020
  • HAVE TO PRAY FOR PEACE.
  • 00:32:24.040 --> 00:32:25.170
  • PEACE IS SOMETHING THEY ALREADY HAVE.
  • 00:32:25.190 --> 00:32:27.200
  • THEY MUST LEARN TO ACCESS IT.
  • 00:32:27.220 --> 00:32:29.160
  • THEY DON'T HAVE TO PRAY FOR JOY.
  • 00:32:29.180 --> 00:32:32.070
  • JOY IS ALREADY WITHIN THEM AND THEY MUST LEARN
  • 00:32:32.090 --> 00:32:35.020
  • TO LIVE IN IT AND TO RELEASE IT.
  • 00:32:35.040 --> 00:32:37.090
  • A PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING, A JOY
  • 00:32:37.110 --> 00:32:39.050
  • THAT'S UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY, BUT
  • 00:32:39.070 --> 00:32:41.030
  • LIKEWISE THE FLOW OF GOD IN HEALING PEOPLE IS
  • 00:32:41.050 --> 00:32:45.060
  • ALREADY WITHIN US.
  • 00:32:45.080 --> 00:32:46.260
  • THIS ABILITY FOR HOLY SPIRIT TO MOVE IN THE
  • 00:32:46.280 --> 00:32:49.230
  • GIFTS OF HEALING AND THE GIFT OF FAITH, THE
  • 00:32:49.250 --> 00:32:52.020
  • WORKING OF MIRACLES, A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, HIM
  • 00:32:52.040 --> 00:32:54.170
  • PROMPTING US IS IN ALL OF US, AND WE KNOW THROUGH
  • 00:32:54.190 --> 00:32:58.020
  • THE WORD THAT WHEN YOU BEGIN TO KNOW THE TRUTH,
  • 00:32:58.040 --> 00:33:01.220
  • THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
  • 00:33:01.240 --> 00:33:03.260
  • AND SO WHAT WE BEGIN TO DO WAS SIMPLY TEACH ON
  • 00:33:03.280 --> 00:33:07.010
  • THIS IN A WAY THAT WAS SO PRACTICAL.
  • 00:33:07.030 --> 00:33:09.290
  • THIS IS HOW YOU BEGIN TO HEAR AND SENSE HOLY
  • 00:33:10.010 --> 00:33:12.150
  • SPIRIT IN A COFFEE SHOP.
  • 00:33:12.170 --> 00:33:14.000
  • AND IF YOU'RE GONNA PRAY FOR SOMEBODY WHO NEEDS A
  • 00:33:14.020 --> 00:33:15.290
  • MIRACLE OF HEALING, YOU DON'T NEED ORGAN MUSIC
  • 00:33:16.010 --> 00:33:18.290
  • AND A CHOIR, AND CAN YOU PRAY FOR FINANCIAL
  • 00:33:19.010 --> 00:33:21.130
  • MIRACLES? AND WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? AND
  • 00:33:21.150 --> 00:33:24.020
  • THERE WAS THIS CONTINUAL UNPACKING TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:33:24.040 --> 00:33:27.140
  • AND I FIND THAT WHEN THEY GOT PERMISSION, WHEN THEY
  • 00:33:27.160 --> 00:33:30.180
  • REALIZED IT ACTUALLY WAS ALL ABOUT THEM, THAT ALL
  • 00:33:30.200 --> 00:33:33.090
  • OF THE GIFTS THAT WE SEE ON TALENTED AND GIFTED
  • 00:33:33.110 --> 00:33:37.070
  • FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY PEOPLE THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:33:37.090 --> 00:33:39.010
  • ACTUALLY THE COACHES.

  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY.

  • AS BELIEVERS, GOD HAS EMPOWERED ALL OF US TO
  • 00:40:05.050 --> 00:40:09.170
  • HELP PEOPLE, REACH OUT TO PEOPLE,
  • 00:40:09.190 --> 00:40:11.090
  • WHETHER YOU'RE IN A CHURCH HALLWAYS OR
  • 00:40:11.110 --> 00:40:13.210
  • PRAYING WITH SOMEONE. ACTUALLY PASTORS DON'T
  • 00:40:13.230 --> 00:40:16.020
  • HAVE A GREATER ANOINTING.
  • 00:40:16.040 --> 00:40:18.090
  • THEY DON'T HAVE MORE OF JESUS.
  • 00:40:18.110 --> 00:40:20.280
  • WE ARE ALL MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:40:21.000 --> 00:40:23.180
  • SO SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY REALLY DOES,
  • 00:40:23.200 --> 00:40:26.090
  • IT BEGINS TO EQUIP PEOPLE AND TEACH THEM.
  • 00:40:26.110 --> 00:40:29.190
  • PASTORS ARE THE COACHES.
  • 00:40:29.210 --> 00:40:32.000
  • BECAUSE IT IS THIS BIG LAITY CLERGY GAP,
  • 00:40:32.020 --> 00:40:35.110
  • I'M THE CLERGY, I'M THE PROFESSIONAL.
  • 00:40:35.130 --> 00:40:37.250
  • YOU'RE THE ROOKIE, YOU'RE THE LAITY, AND
  • 00:40:37.270 --> 00:40:39.280
  • THIS CLERGY/LAITY GAP HAS GOTTEN HUGE UNTIL THEY
  • 00:40:40.000 --> 00:40:43.100
  • FINALLY JUST ALLOW THE CLERGY TO DO ALL OF
  • 00:40:43.120 --> 00:40:45.140
  • THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY RATHER THAN TO EQUIP
  • 00:40:45.160 --> 00:40:47.210
  • AND COACH THEM IN IT.
  • 00:40:47.230 --> 00:40:49.040
  • SO WHEN PEOPLE BEGIN TO HEAR THIS TEACHING,
  • 00:40:49.060 --> 00:40:51.080
  • THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY LOOK AT THE FIVE-FOLD
  • 00:40:51.100 --> 00:40:54.020
  • MINISTRY OF THE COACHES, YOU ARE THE GIFTED,
  • 00:40:54.040 --> 00:40:57.270
  • PHENOMENALLY AMAZING PLAYERS.

  • MATT CROUCH: HOW IS IT THAT PEOPLE COULD START THIS?
  • 00:41:14.220 --> 00:41:18.150
  • HOW DO THEY GET PREPARED FOR THESE STILL SMALL
  • 00:41:18.170 --> 00:41:22.060
  • VOICES OR A CHOKE AROUND THE NECK IF NECESSARY?
  • 00:41:22.080 --> 00:41:25.260
  • LEON FONTAINE: YOU KNOW, WE'VE OFTEN TAUGHT VERY,
  • 00:41:25.280 --> 00:41:28.070
  • THIS IS THE WAY HOLY SPIRIT IS GONNA SPEAK TO
  • 00:41:28.090 --> 00:41:30.260
  • US, BUT OVERT YEARS I'VE NOTICED THAT HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:41:30.280 --> 00:41:34.180
  • WILL SPEAK TO YOU IN THE WAY THAT YOU'LL HEAR AND
  • 00:41:34.200 --> 00:41:37.020
  • LISTEN TO HIM IF YOU'VE GOT EARS TO HEAR.
  • 00:41:37.040 --> 00:41:39.110
  • I MEAN HE SPEAKS TO PEOPLE IN SO MANY WAYS.
  • 00:41:39.130 --> 00:41:41.000
  • BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS HELPED PEOPLE
  • 00:41:41.020 --> 00:41:42.140
  • THE MOST IS WHEN I TELL THEM,
  • 00:41:42.160 --> 00:41:43.260
  • WHEN YOU LISTEN TO MATURE BELIEVERS SAYING I WAS
  • 00:41:43.280 --> 00:41:46.120
  • JUST TALKING WITH GOD THIS MORNING AND HE TOLD
  • 00:41:46.140 --> 00:41:48.250
  • ME THAT-AND YOU KIND OF GO-I HAVE NEVER HEARD AN
  • 00:41:48.270 --> 00:41:52.130
  • AUDIBLE VOICE TO MY AUDIBLE EAR,
  • 00:41:52.150 --> 00:41:54.230
  • TO MY PHYSICAL EARS.
  • 00:41:54.250 --> 00:41:56.150
  • WHENEVER GOD LEADS ME, IT IS ALWAYS A FEELING THAT
  • 00:41:56.170 --> 00:42:00.210
  • RISES UP NOT FROM MY EMOTIONS BUT IT
  • 00:42:00.230 --> 00:42:02.180
  • RISES UP FROM HERE.
  • 00:42:02.200 --> 00:42:04.150
  • THERE'S A VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS THE
  • 00:42:04.170 --> 00:42:06.120
  • SPIRIT OF MAN IS THE CANDLE OF THE LORD
  • 00:42:06.140 --> 00:42:09.270
  • SEARCHING ALL THE INWARD PARTS OF THE BELLY.
  • 00:42:09.290 --> 00:42:13.000
  • AND SO YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO, AS THE
  • 00:42:13.020 --> 00:42:16.020
  • BUSINESSMEN WE WERE WATCHING SAY, YOUR GUT.
  • 00:42:16.040 --> 00:42:19.090
  • MANY OF THE MEN WHO ARE AND WOMEN WHO ARE GREAT
  • 00:42:19.110 --> 00:42:22.220
  • LEADERS IN OUR CHURCH, EVEN BEFORE THEY GOT
  • 00:42:22.240 --> 00:42:24.250
  • SAVED, WHEN THEY HEAR ME TEACH ON THE LEADING OF
  • 00:42:24.270 --> 00:42:26.280
  • THE SPIRIT AND I GO THROUGH THE STEPS YOU'RE
  • 00:42:27.000 --> 00:42:29.160
  • ASKING ABOUT, WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
  • 00:42:29.180 --> 00:42:31.120
  • WHERE DO YOU FIRST NOTICE IT?
  • 00:42:31.140 --> 00:42:33.000
  • I ALWAYS GO TO A GUT FEELING FIRST BECAUSE
  • 00:42:33.020 --> 00:42:35.230
  • IT'S SO BIBLICAL. IT'S THE BELLY OF MAN.
  • 00:42:35.250 --> 00:42:38.290
  • YOU SENSE THE SPIRIT IN YOUR BELLY.
  • 00:42:39.010 --> 00:42:40.220
  • YOU DON'T SENSE THE SPIRIT IN YOUR FEET.
  • 00:42:40.240 --> 00:42:42.180
  • YOU DON'T SENSE IT IN YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:42:42.200 --> 00:42:43.250
  • IT RISES UP TO YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:42:43.270 --> 00:42:45.210
  • AND SO I'LL TELL PEOPLE HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A
  • 00:42:45.230 --> 00:42:47.150
  • ROOM WHETHER IT'S A STARBUCKS OR SOMEONE'S HOME
  • 00:42:47.170 --> 00:42:51.020
  • WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND YOU JUST FEEL DRAWN
  • 00:42:51.040 --> 00:42:54.080
  • TO SOMEONE, AND THERE'S NOT A REASON FOR IT.
  • 00:42:54.100 --> 00:42:56.120
  • THE GUY'S NOT FREAKING OUT AND GOING CRAZY,
  • 00:42:56.140 --> 00:42:58.150
  • IT'S JUST A PERSON BUT YOU FEEL DRAWN.
  • 00:42:58.170 --> 00:43:00.170
  • THEY JUST STAND OUT TO YOU.
  • 00:43:00.190 --> 00:43:02.130
  • I SAID THAT WAS HOLY SPIRIT NUDGING YOU.
  • 00:43:02.150 --> 00:43:04.210
  • GO TALK TO THEM.
  • 00:43:04.230 --> 00:43:06.000
  • AND IF YOU'LL TAKE THE STEP OF FAITH AND GO OVER
  • 00:43:06.020 --> 00:43:08.100
  • AND SAY HEY, I'M LEON, HOW YOU DOING?
  • 00:43:08.120 --> 00:43:10.090
  • AND YOU'LL FIND THAT HE'LL QUICKLY LEAD YOU WITH THE
  • 00:43:10.110 --> 00:43:13.150
  • SECOND STEP AS YOU LISTEN TO THAT MAN,
  • 00:43:13.170 --> 00:43:15.270
  • YOU'LL ASK HIM A QUESTION, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:43:15.290 --> 00:43:18.210
  • YOU REALIZE HE'S DYING OF CANCER.
  • 00:43:18.230 --> 00:43:22.040
  • AND SO I TELL PEOPLE THAT EVERYBODY,
  • 00:43:22.060 --> 00:43:25.190
  • EVERYBODY HAS HOLY SPIRIT GUIDING YOU BECAUSE IF
  • 00:43:25.210 --> 00:43:28.060
  • HE'S NOT, THEN HE'S A LIAR BECAUSE JESUS SAID
  • 00:43:28.080 --> 00:43:31.280
  • HE WOULD LEAD US INTO ALL TRUTH, EVERY PERSON.
  • 00:43:32.000 --> 00:43:36.080
  • JESUS SAID THAT WHEN HE COMES,
  • 00:43:36.100 --> 00:43:38.050
  • HE WILL SHOW US THINGS TO COME.
  • 00:43:38.070 --> 00:43:41.150
  • SO HE IS ALWAYS SENDING, HE'S ALWAYS PREPARING
  • 00:43:41.170 --> 00:43:45.030
  • BOTH FOR US AND THE HURTING PEOPLE
  • 00:43:45.050 --> 00:43:49.030
  • WALKING AROUND US.
  • 00:43:49.050 --> 00:43:50.180
  • AND SO IF YOU JUST START AND SAY-AND I THINK WE
  • 00:43:50.200 --> 00:43:54.070
  • SHOULD PRAY FOR PEOPLE THAT IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS
  • 00:43:54.090 --> 00:43:57.240
  • THEY WOULD SENSE A NUDGE AND JUST EMBRACE SOMEONE
  • 00:43:57.260 --> 00:44:00.060
  • IN A CONVERSATION.
  • 00:44:00.080 --> 00:44:02.010
  • BILL HYBELS HAS THIS BOOK,
  • 00:44:02.030 --> 00:44:03.160
  • JUST WALK ACROSS THE ROOM.
  • 00:44:03.180 --> 00:44:05.170
  • JUST START A CONVERSATION. RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:44:05.190 --> 00:44:07.240
  • JUST RELATIONAL EVANGELISM.
  • 00:44:07.260 --> 00:44:09.100
  • BUT IF YOU'LL SENSE THAT.
  • 00:44:09.120 --> 00:44:10.240
  • AND THE OTHER THING I'VE TAUGHT PEOPLE IS THERE'S
  • 00:44:10.260 --> 00:44:12.210
  • SO MANY WAYS, LIKE THERE'S TIMES WHEN I
  • 00:44:12.230 --> 00:44:14.280
  • CAN'T GET SOMETHING OUT OF MY MIND.
  • 00:44:15.000 --> 00:44:16.060
  • I'M DRIVING MY CAR AND I'M NOT EVEN THINKING
  • 00:44:16.080 --> 00:44:17.130
  • ABOUT THAT PERSON. BAM!
  • 00:44:17.150 --> 00:44:19.060
  • THAT PERSON'S FACE POPS INTO MY MIND.
  • 00:44:19.080 --> 00:44:21.050
  • SO WHAT I DO IS I DON'T PHONE THEM UP AND SAY
  • 00:44:21.070 --> 00:44:23.160
  • BILLY, MAN THE LORD IS PUTTING YOU IN MY HEAD
  • 00:44:23.180 --> 00:44:26.200
  • RIGHT NOW. I JUST GO HEY BILLY, HOW IS IT GOING MAN?
  • 00:44:26.220 --> 00:44:29.110
  • I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:44:29.130 --> 00:44:30.280
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU HEAR A QUIET LULL AND
  • 00:44:31.000 --> 00:44:33.190
  • HE GOES LEON, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
  • 00:44:33.210 --> 00:44:35.170
  • YOU COULDN'T HAVE CALLED AT A BETTER TIME.
  • 00:44:35.190 --> 00:44:37.060
  • YOU KNOW WHAT IT DOES TO YOU?
  • 00:44:37.080 --> 00:44:38.160
  • YOU GO, MAN, I HEARD FROM GOD! THAT WAS GOD.
  • 00:44:38.180 --> 00:44:41.270
  • SO THERE'S TIMES SOMEONE WILL COME TO ME.
  • 00:44:41.290 --> 00:44:43.200
  • THERE'S TIMES I'LL SENSE A LITTLE BIT OF A
  • 00:44:43.220 --> 00:44:45.120
  • HEAVINESS FOR NO REASON.
  • 00:44:45.140 --> 00:44:47.240
  • AND I'LL JUST SAY GOD, WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:44:47.260 --> 00:44:50.090
  • AND SOMETIMES I'LL JUST PAY A LITTLE MORE
  • 00:44:50.110 --> 00:44:51.200
  • ATTENTION TO WHAT.
  • 00:44:51.220 --> 00:44:53.020
  • AND SOMEONE WILL COME TO MY MIND,
  • 00:44:53.040 --> 00:44:54.090
  • AND I'LL CALL THEM.
  • 00:44:54.110 --> 00:44:55.120
  • OTHER TIMES I PHONE, HOW YOU DOING?
  • 00:44:55.140 --> 00:44:56.230
  • REALLY GOOD. HOW YOU DOING?
  • 00:44:56.250 --> 00:44:58.070
  • I'M HAVING A GREAT DAY TODAY,
  • 00:44:58.090 --> 00:44:59.230
  • BUT THANKS FOR CALLING.
  • 00:44:59.250 --> 00:45:01.050
  • I JUST SAY I'M THINKING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:45:01.070 --> 00:45:02.260
  • IT WASN'T THE GUY. I MISSED IT.
  • 00:45:02.280 --> 00:45:04.110
  • WE CAN DEVELOP A WAY OF PRACTICING TO HEAR,
  • 00:45:04.130 --> 00:45:08.110
  • AND THE ONLY WAY TO PRACTICE IS TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:45:08.130 --> 00:45:10.170
  • STEP OUT INTO IT.
  • 00:45:10.190 --> 00:45:11.290
  • BUT DON'T STEP OUT INTO AN ARROGANT, ABRASIVE,
  • 00:45:12.010 --> 00:45:14.190
  • CONDESCENDING WAY, LIKE YOU THE MAN,
  • 00:45:14.210 --> 00:45:16.220
  • GOD SPOKE TO YOU, BECAUSE THE WORLD THINKS WE'RE
  • 00:45:16.240 --> 00:45:18.270
  • CRAZY AND SO DO NEW CHRISTIANS WHEN WE DO THAT.
  • 00:45:18.290 --> 00:45:21.190
  • SO TO START, WE NEED TO KNOW THE WORD.
  • 00:45:21.210 --> 00:45:24.220
  • THE GREATEST, THERE'S TWO THINGS THAT ARE POWERFUL.
  • 00:45:24.240 --> 00:45:28.210
  • THE FIRST IS TO KNOW GOD'S WILL OF HIM FLOWING
  • 00:45:28.230 --> 00:45:31.170
  • THROUGH YOU AND TO YOU.
  • 00:45:31.190 --> 00:45:34.010
  • AND THE SECOND IS BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:45:34.030 --> 00:45:36.290
  • AND THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER THING WE WON'T COVER
  • 00:45:37.010 --> 00:45:39.150
  • HERE, BUT PEOPLE NEED TO BE AWARE THAT YOU NEED
  • 00:45:39.170 --> 00:45:41.230
  • TO BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:45:41.250 --> 00:45:43.020
  • WHATEVER YOUR DOCTRINE IS NEED TO BE AWARE OF THAT.
  • 00:45:43.040 --> 00:45:45.080
  • THE DISCIPLES ALWAYS MINISTERED FROM THE OVERFLOW.
  • 00:45:45.100 --> 00:45:48.270
  • AND SO I WORK HARD-- NO, I SHOULD REPHRASE THAT.
  • 00:45:48.290 --> 00:45:52.000
  • I SPEND TIME, ENJOYABLE TIME, IN THE WORD AND WITH
  • 00:45:52.020 --> 00:45:56.090
  • HOLY SPIRIT TO MAINTAIN A FULLNESS , A JOY,
  • 00:45:56.110 --> 00:46:01.000
  • A STRENGTHENING FROM HIM BEFORE I STEP INTO
  • 00:46:01.020 --> 00:46:03.030
  • SITUATIONS BUT I NEVER KNOW WHAT I'M GONNA STEP
  • 00:46:03.050 --> 00:46:04.180
  • INTO A SITUATION.
  • 00:46:04.200 --> 00:46:06.030
  • SO I LIVE THERE DAILY. BUT THAT WOULD BE A
  • 00:46:06.050 --> 00:46:08.150
  • COUPLE OF REALLY QUICK THINGS JUST THE NEXT TIME
  • 00:46:08.170 --> 00:46:10.190
  • YOU THINK OF SOMEBODY, PHONE THEM.
  • 00:46:10.210 --> 00:46:12.030
  • NEXT TIME YOU SEE A NUDGE,
  • 00:46:12.050 --> 00:46:13.240
  • GO TALK TO THEM AND THAT, FOR MOST PEOPLE,
  • 00:46:13.260 --> 00:46:15.200
  • WILL BE STEPPING OUT OF THE BOAT.
  • 00:46:15.220 --> 00:46:17.120
  • 00:46:17.140 --> 00:46:23.150
  • - WHAT'S HE DOING HERE?
  • 00:46:24.190 --> 00:46:26.130
  • - I'M SO SORRY TO TROUBLE YOU.
  • 00:46:26.150 --> 00:46:29.210
  • I KNOW HOW HARD THIS IS FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:46:29.230 --> 00:46:31.200
  • AND THE LAST THING I WANT TO DO IS MAKE THIS
  • 00:46:31.220 --> 00:46:33.100
  • MORE DIFFICULT FOR YOU.
  • 00:46:33.120 --> 00:46:35.230
  • IF YOU DON'T WANT ME HERE,
  • 00:46:35.250 --> 00:46:37.060
  • I CAN LEAVE IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:46:37.080 --> 00:46:39.060
  • I'M SURE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH JESSICA LOVES HER
  • 00:46:40.230 --> 00:46:42.180
  • FATHER AND SHE ASKED ME TO COME AND PRAY FOR HIM
  • 00:46:42.200 --> 00:46:45.290
  • OUT OF THAT LOVE BECAUSE SHE BELIEVES THIS IS THE
  • 00:46:46.010 --> 00:46:49.080
  • BEST THING SHE CAN POSSIBLY DO FOR HIM.
  • 00:46:49.100 --> 00:46:54.070
  • I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU DON'T AGREE WITH
  • 00:46:54.090 --> 00:46:55.260
  • JESSICA'S BELIEFS, BUT OUT OF RESPECT FOR HER
  • 00:46:55.280 --> 00:47:00.110
  • LOVE FOR HER DAD,
  • 00:47:00.130 --> 00:47:02.260
  • MAY I SAY JUST A 30 SECOND BLESSING?
  • 00:47:02.280 --> 00:47:06.150
  • BLESS THIS MAN.
  • 00:47:16.280 --> 00:47:19.020
  • FATHER, I WANT YOU TO TOUCH HIM.
  • 00:47:19.240 --> 00:47:24.020
  • HELP HIS FAMILY THROUGH THIS TERRIBLE TIME.
  • 00:47:24.040 --> 00:47:28.270
  • GIVE THEM STRENGTH AND PEACE.
  • 00:47:28.290 --> 00:47:33.280
  • FILL THIS ROOM WITH YOUR PEACE AND YOUR PRESENCE.
  • 00:47:34.000 --> 00:47:42.000
  • THANK YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:47:43.270 --> 00:47:46.100
  • OUR CHURCH WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR YOUR FATHER.

  • 00:47:58.030 --> 00:48:07.030
  • EVERYWHERE WE GO, HOLY SPIRIT IS LOOKING FOR
  • 00:48:07.050 --> 00:48:10.010
  • WAYS TO BRING PEOPLE TO JESUS, AND IF WE'RE OPEN,
  • 00:48:10.030 --> 00:48:14.000
  • HE WILL USE US IN A POWERFUL WAY.
  • 00:48:14.020 --> 00:48:17.010
  • HE ALSO WANTS TO HEAL THEIR SICKNESS AND
  • 00:48:17.030 --> 00:48:19.130
  • SORROW THROUGH US.
  • 00:48:19.150 --> 00:48:21.240
  • BUT HAVING THEM OPEN THEIR HEART TO JESUS IS
  • 00:48:21.260 --> 00:48:24.150
  • AN EVEN BIGGER PRIORITY.
  • 00:48:24.170 --> 00:48:27.150
  • YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GIVE SOMEONE A SHOULDER TO CRY
  • 00:48:27.170 --> 00:48:30.200
  • ON, A LISTENING EAR AND SOME GOOD ADVICE.
  • 00:48:30.220 --> 00:48:34.060
  • YOU MIGHT EVEN BE ABLE TO LAY HANDS ON SOMEONE AND
  • 00:48:34.080 --> 00:48:37.120
  • SEE THEM RECOVER, WHICH IS FANTASTIC!
  • 00:48:37.140 --> 00:48:40.260
  • BUT IF YOU CAN INTRODUCE THEM TO A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:48:40.280 --> 00:48:44.000
  • WITH JESUS, YOU CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF
  • 00:48:44.020 --> 00:48:47.090
  • THEIR LIVES AS WELL AS HOW THEY WILL SPEND ETERNITY.

  • SOMEBODY AT A COFFEE SHOP,
  • 00:49:00.220 --> 00:49:02.050
  • OR YOU LITERALLY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY WITH
  • 00:49:02.070 --> 00:49:05.100
  • SOMEONE ABOUT A SITUATION IN THEIR LIFE,
  • 00:49:05.120 --> 00:49:08.070
  • WE DON'T NEED TO MAKE THESE RAGING PROPHETIC
  • 00:49:08.090 --> 00:49:12.270
  • UTTERANCES, I'M GONNA PRAY FOR YOU AND GOD IS
  • 00:49:12.290 --> 00:49:14.190
  • GOING TO HEAL YOU.
  • 00:49:14.210 --> 00:49:15.260
  • WHEN I PRAY FOR YOU, THAT FINANCIAL PROBLEM
  • 00:49:15.280 --> 00:49:17.150
  • IS GOING AWAY.
  • 00:49:17.170 --> 00:49:18.230
  • WHEN I PRAY FOR YOU, THAT CHILD IS COMING BACK.
  • 00:49:18.250 --> 00:49:21.060
  • I MEAN, THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOD WILL GIVE US
  • 00:49:21.080 --> 00:49:24.120
  • A WORD OF WISDOM ABOUT THE FUTURE,
  • 00:49:24.140 --> 00:49:27.050
  • BUT I TEACH PEOPLE THAT WHEN YOU PRAY WITH
  • 00:49:27.070 --> 00:49:30.000
  • PEOPLE, PRAY WITH THEM IN A WAY THAT LEAVES ROOM
  • 00:49:30.020 --> 00:49:33.080
  • FOR GOD TO ANSWER IT IN THE WAY HE COULD ANSWER
  • 00:49:33.100 --> 00:49:37.000
  • IT. AND SO HEALINGS AREN'T ALWAYS INSTANT.
  • 00:49:37.020 --> 00:49:40.040
  • SO WHEN IT COMES TO PRAYING FOR FINANCIAL
  • 00:49:40.060 --> 00:49:42.080
  • SITUATIONS, WE PRAY BOTH FOR THE MIRACLE BUT ALSO
  • 00:49:42.100 --> 00:49:46.180
  • FOR THE STRENGTH AND THE WISDOM TO WALK
  • 00:49:46.200 --> 00:49:49.190
  • THROUGH THIS STORM.
  • 00:49:49.210 --> 00:49:51.130
  • AND WHEN PEOPLE BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE
  • 00:49:51.150 --> 00:49:53.220
  • BIBLE DOESN'T SAY STORMS WON'T COME;
  • 00:49:53.240 --> 00:49:56.080
  • IT JUST SAYS THAT IF YOU'LL FOUND IT ON JESUS,
  • 00:49:56.100 --> 00:49:58.240
  • YOU WON'T BE SHAKEN.
  • 00:49:58.260 --> 00:50:01.020
  • AND WHEN THE STORM BLOWS BY,
  • 00:50:01.040 --> 00:50:03.040
  • YOU WILL BE STANDING LIKE THOSE OLD WESTERNS, WHEN
  • 00:50:03.060 --> 00:50:05.290
  • THE SMOKE CLEARS, THERE YOU ARE, STILL STANDING.
  • 00:50:06.010 --> 00:50:09.090
  • AND THIS GIVES US HOPE IN THE MIDST OF CRISIS,
  • 00:50:09.110 --> 00:50:12.050
  • SO WHEN PEOPLE PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:50:12.070 --> 00:50:14.020
  • PRAY IN A WAY THAT GOD'S GONNA GIVE US STRENGTH AS
  • 00:50:14.040 --> 00:50:17.080
  • WE WALK OUT THIS MIRACLE AND WE DON'T SEE
  • 00:50:17.100 --> 00:50:20.090
  • EVERYTHING AS AN INSTANTANEOUS,
  • 00:50:20.110 --> 00:50:22.030
  • WAVE THE MAGIC WAND, UTTER A FEW VERSES AS IF
  • 00:50:22.050 --> 00:50:24.190
  • THE BIBLE IS A MAGIC INCANTATION BOOK,
  • 00:50:24.210 --> 00:50:28.070
  • BUT THIS IS A JOURNEY THAT HE'S GONNA
  • 00:50:28.090 --> 00:50:29.210
  • BE WITH US ON.
  • 00:50:29.230 --> 00:50:31.110
  • IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:50:37.050 --> 00:50:39.270
  • YOU HAVE TO BE LIKE JESUS WHO GREW IN FAVOR
  • 00:50:39.290 --> 00:50:43.180
  • WITH GOD AND GREW IN FAVOR WITH MAN.
  • 00:50:43.200 --> 00:50:48.180
  • SO IF YOU ARE IN A DITCH ON ONE SIDE FOR EVERY
  • 00:50:48.200 --> 00:50:51.050
  • MILE OF ROAD IS TWO MILES OF DITCH.
  • 00:50:51.070 --> 00:50:54.030
  • WE HAVE PEOPLE ON THE ONE SIDE WHO ARE SO SPIRITUAL
  • 00:50:54.050 --> 00:50:56.210
  • THEY PRAY ABOUT IT, THEY'RE PRAYING FOR THEIR
  • 00:50:56.230 --> 00:50:58.280
  • KIDS TO GET SAVED, PRAYING FOR THEIR
  • 00:50:59.000 --> 00:51:00.290
  • BUSINESS TO INCREASE, PRAYING THAT THEY CAN
  • 00:51:01.010 --> 00:51:04.040
  • START TITHING, PRAYING FOR STUFF,
  • 00:51:04.060 --> 00:51:06.230
  • AND THEN ON THE PRACTICAL SIDE WHERE YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:51:06.250 --> 00:51:09.290
  • LEARN TO BE CONTEMPORARY AND MAKE THAT BUSINESS
  • 00:51:10.010 --> 00:51:13.000
  • WORK IN THE REAL WORLD, ARE YOU A PROBLEM SOLVER?
  • 00:51:13.020 --> 00:51:16.280
  • OR DO YOU JUST PRAY ABOUT EVERY PROBLEM?
  • 00:51:17.000 --> 00:51:19.110
  • 00:51:19.130 --> 00:51:23.020
  • MATT CROUCH: PASTOR, I WANT YOU TO JUST TAKE A
  • 00:51:23.040 --> 00:51:25.020
  • MOMENT AND PRAY FOR THE TELEVISION AUDIENCE.
  • 00:51:25.040 --> 00:51:28.140
  • I KNOW THAT THEY HAVE CONFIDENCE,
  • 00:51:28.160 --> 00:51:31.250
  • SOMETIMES IN THE PRAYER OF SOMEBODY THAT'S
  • 00:51:31.270 --> 00:51:34.290
  • IMPARTING THIS TO THEM.
  • 00:51:35.010 --> 00:51:37.060
  • AND I JUST WANT YOU TO KIND OF TAKE YOUR LIBERTY
  • 00:51:37.080 --> 00:51:41.110
  • NOW AND PUT THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY LIFE TO
  • 00:51:41.130 --> 00:51:45.150
  • WORK ON AND IN THIS BROADCAST IF YOU WOULD.
  • 00:51:45.170 --> 00:51:49.000
  • - THERE'S DAYS I HAVE TO REMIND MYSELF I'M SO
  • 00:51:49.020 --> 00:51:50.260
  • SELF-FOCUSED, AND I WANT YOU TO DO THAT.
  • 00:51:50.280 --> 00:51:53.180
  • IN FACT, I'M GONNA PRAY WITH YOU RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:51:53.200 --> 00:51:55.150
  • AND I'M GONNA ASK GOD IN ORDER TO HELP EVERYBODY
  • 00:51:55.170 --> 00:51:59.020
  • WATCHING, I'M PUTTING MY FAITH OUT AND IT'S GONNA
  • 00:51:59.040 --> 00:52:01.040
  • HAPPEN. LISTEN TO ME, I'M BELIEVING THAT IN THE
  • 00:52:01.060 --> 00:52:03.090
  • NEXT 24 HOURS THAT YOU'RE GONNA GET A NUDGE.
  • 00:52:03.110 --> 00:52:07.040
  • GOD'S GONNA BRING SOMEONE TO YOUR MIND,
  • 00:52:07.060 --> 00:52:09.130
  • AND I KNOW YOU'RE HURTING,
  • 00:52:09.150 --> 00:52:10.250
  • AND YOU'RE BELIEVING FOR SOMETHING IN AN AREA,
  • 00:52:10.270 --> 00:52:12.170
  • BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:52:12.190 --> 00:52:14.170
  • I'M NOT PRAYING FOR YOU.
  • 00:52:14.190 --> 00:52:16.030
  • I'D LIKE YOU EVEN IN THE MIDST OF WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:52:16.050 --> 00:52:18.060
  • DOING TO REACH OUT AND IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS TO SAY
  • 00:52:18.080 --> 00:52:22.280
  • GOD, WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
  • 00:52:23.000 --> 00:52:25.200
  • YOU'LL WALK INTO A COFFEE SHOP,
  • 00:52:25.220 --> 00:52:27.100
  • AND YOU'LL JUST FEEL DRAWN TO SOMEONE.
  • 00:52:27.120 --> 00:52:29.220
  • I WANT YOU TO STEP OVER THERE AND START TALKING
  • 00:52:29.240 --> 00:52:31.200
  • TO THEM. JUST SAY HEY, CAN I JOIN YOU FOR COFFEE,
  • 00:52:31.220 --> 00:52:33.230
  • I'M ALONE TODAY. OR MAYBE IT'S A NEIGHBOR
  • 00:52:33.250 --> 00:52:36.020
  • THAT YOU JUST CAN'T GET OUT OF YOUR MIND.
  • 00:52:36.040 --> 00:52:37.210
  • GO KNOCK ON THE DOOR, BUY A BLUEBERRY PIE IF YOU
  • 00:52:37.230 --> 00:52:40.090
  • DON'T BAKE AND SAY I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU
  • 00:52:40.110 --> 00:52:42.130
  • AND WANT TO DROP THIS OFF.
  • 00:52:42.150 --> 00:52:44.050
  • THINK OF BEAUTIFUL CONTEMPORARY WAYS TO ENGAGE
  • 00:52:44.070 --> 00:52:48.030
  • PEOPLE THAT YOU FEEL A NUDGE TOWARDS AND THE
  • 00:52:48.050 --> 00:52:50.160
  • MIRACLE WILL BEGIN.
  • 00:52:50.180 --> 00:52:53.000
  • FROM THERE, THE BIBLE SAYS AS YOU JUST TALK,
  • 00:52:53.020 --> 00:52:55.090
  • YOU'LL BE SURPRISED, WHEN I DO THIS IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:52:55.110 --> 00:52:58.100
  • SO MANY PEOPLE TELL ME, FROM BABY CHRISTIANS TO
  • 00:52:58.120 --> 00:53:00.050
  • MATURE, I JUST STARTED TALKING TO THEM,
  • 00:53:00.070 --> 00:53:01.230
  • AND THEN HE STARTED TO TALK,
  • 00:53:01.250 --> 00:53:03.000
  • AND IT JUST STARTED TO TAKE OFF,
  • 00:53:03.020 --> 00:53:04.090
  • AND I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW AMAZING I WAS!
  • 00:53:04.110 --> 00:53:06.060
  • LEON, I WAS ANSWERING QUESTIONS AND SAYING THINGS.
  • 00:53:06.080 --> 00:53:08.060
  • BECAUSE UNTIL YOU STEP INTO THE CRISIS,
  • 00:53:08.080 --> 00:53:11.250
  • GOD CAN'T USE YOU.
  • 00:53:11.270 --> 00:53:13.170
  • YOU'RE NO GOOD IN THE BOAT UNTIL YOU STEP OUT.
  • 00:53:13.190 --> 00:53:15.100
  • YOU CAN'T WALK ON THE WATER UNTIL YOU
  • 00:53:15.120 --> 00:53:16.160
  • GET OUT OF THE BOAT.
  • 00:53:16.180 --> 00:53:17.250
  • YOU CAN'T EVEN BE A HERO UNTIL YOU STEP INTO
  • 00:53:17.270 --> 00:53:19.170
  • SOMEONE'S CRISIS.
  • 00:53:19.190 --> 00:53:21.130
  • SO FATHER, I'M ASKING YOU FOR EVERYONE WATCHING
  • 00:53:21.150 --> 00:53:25.010
  • TODAY, WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU IN THE NEXT DAY,
  • 00:53:25.030 --> 00:53:29.180
  • THE NEXT 24 HOURS, AND I'M ASKING YOU,
  • 00:53:29.200 --> 00:53:31.290
  • HOLY SPIRIT TO NUDGE THEM TOWARDS SOMEONE THAT YOU
  • 00:53:32.010 --> 00:53:36.140
  • NEED THEM TO TALK TO.
  • 00:53:36.160 --> 00:53:38.170
  • IF THEY NEED TO PRAY, THEY'LL PRAY.
  • 00:53:38.190 --> 00:53:40.150
  • IF IT'S WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT,
  • 00:53:40.170 --> 00:53:42.080
  • BUT FATHER, LET THEM KNOW AND START THIS JOURNEY OF
  • 00:53:42.100 --> 00:53:45.250
  • LIVING A SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY LIFE
  • 00:53:45.270 --> 00:53:48.290
  • LISTENING, SENSING YOUR NUDGES.
  • 00:53:49.010 --> 00:53:51.230
  • AND FATHER, I AM BELIEVING THAT THE
  • 00:53:51.250 --> 00:53:53.220
  • GREATEST EXCITEMENT FOR THIS ENTIRE TBN VIEWING
  • 00:53:53.240 --> 00:53:56.170
  • AUDIENCE IS GONNA BE WALKING IN THE
  • 00:53:56.190 --> 00:53:59.130
  • MIRACULOUS, FOLLOWING HOLY SPIRIT AND BEGINNING
  • 00:53:59.150 --> 00:54:03.040
  • TO SEE MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE.
  • 00:54:03.060 --> 00:54:05.150
  • I CALL THIS DONE IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:54:05.170 --> 00:54:08.060
  • AND FATHER, I PRAY THEY START THIS EXCITING NEW
  • 00:54:08.080 --> 00:54:11.070
  • LIFE OF LOOKING AFTER THE THINGS THAT ARE ON YOUR
  • 00:54:11.090 --> 00:54:13.230
  • HEART, IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.
  • 00:54:13.250 --> 00:54:16.000
  • 00:54:16.020 --> 00:54:19.070
  • YOU SHOULD BE DAILY DOING THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:54:19.090 --> 00:54:22.120
  • CAUSE THE PRESENCE OF GOD TO BE RELEASED IN YOUR
  • 00:54:22.140 --> 00:54:25.200
  • LIFE BECAUSE GOD 'S PRESENCE FROM HIS
  • 00:54:25.220 --> 00:54:28.010
  • PERSPECTIVE HAS BEEN COMMANDED UPON YOU.
  • 00:54:28.030 --> 00:54:31.040
  • THE BLESSINGS OF THE LORD HAVE BEEN COMMANDED UPON
  • 00:54:31.060 --> 00:54:33.220
  • YOU. HE'S NOT WITHHOLDING ANYTHING.
  • 00:54:33.240 --> 00:54:36.030
  • SO NOW YOU MUST SIMPLY BELIEVE,
  • 00:54:36.050 --> 00:54:39.000
  • GET IN AGREEMENT WITH ALL OF THESE PROMISES THAT
  • 00:54:39.020 --> 00:54:41.290
  • ARE YOURS, AND THEN HE'S GIVEN US WISDOM.
  • 00:54:42.010 --> 00:54:46.230
  • BUT WISDOM IS SOMETHING YOU GROW IN
  • 00:54:46.250 --> 00:54:48.270
  • AND YOU DEVELOP IN.
  • 00:54:48.290 --> 00:54:52.070
  • 00:54:52.090 --> 00:54:53.280
  • TO BE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY IS NOT SO
  • 00:54:54.000 --> 00:54:56.250
  • MUCH A DOCTRINE AS IT IS REMINDING PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:54:56.270 --> 00:55:00.180
  • IF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:55:00.200 --> 00:55:02.280
  • EFFECTIVE, THEN IN THE BUSINESS WORLD,
  • 00:55:03.000 --> 00:55:05.080
  • THE BEST WAY FOR US TO GARNER ATTENTION IS TO
  • 00:55:05.100 --> 00:55:08.240
  • BECOME A STUNNING BUSINESSMAN.
  • 00:55:08.260 --> 00:55:11.200
  • PEOPLE DON'T CARE WHAT RELIGION YOU ARE IF YOU'RE
  • 00:55:11.220 --> 00:55:13.220
  • SUCCESSFUL AND THE BIBLE SAYS WE SHOULD BE.
  • 00:55:13.240 --> 00:55:16.130
  • IF YOU ARE A MOM OR YOU'VE GOT A MARRIAGE
  • 00:55:16.150 --> 00:55:18.200
  • THAT IS EXCITING AND VIBRANT AND THEN PEOPLE
  • 00:55:18.220 --> 00:55:20.210
  • SEE YOU GOING THROUGH STUFF AND STILL SMILING,
  • 00:55:20.230 --> 00:55:23.120
  • IT'S THIS SUPERNATURAL MARRIAGE THAT ATTRACTS
  • 00:55:23.140 --> 00:55:25.240
  • THE WORLD TO IT.
  • 00:55:25.260 --> 00:55:27.140
  • TODAY IT'S LIKE WE'VE TAUGHT PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:55:27.160 --> 00:55:29.010
  • MEEK MEANS WIMPY.
  • 00:55:29.030 --> 00:55:31.130
  • NO ONE WANTS TO FOLLOW WIMPY.
  • 00:55:31.150 --> 00:55:33.010
  • IT'S LIKE JESUS WAS THIS LIMP-WRISTED,
  • 00:55:33.030 --> 00:55:36.190
  • LONG DRESSED HIPPY WALKING AROUND TRYING
  • 00:55:36.210 --> 00:55:39.040
  • TO MAKE EVERYBODY JUST BE PATHETIC,
  • 00:55:39.060 --> 00:55:41.170
  • LITTLE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:55:41.190 --> 00:55:42.220
  • MERCY DROPS AROUND US ARE FALLING,
  • 00:55:42.240 --> 00:55:44.110
  • BUT FOR THE SHOWERS WE PLEAD.
  • 00:55:44.130 --> 00:55:47.000
  • JESUS, COME RESCUE US FROM THIS WORLD OF WOE!
  • 00:55:47.020 --> 00:55:49.210
  • OUR ENTIRE LOOK AT WHAT A CHRISTIAN IS IS SO
  • 00:55:49.230 --> 00:55:52.290
  • MESSED UP THAT NOBODY IS ATTRACTED TO CHRISTIANITY.
  • 00:55:53.010 --> 00:55:56.130
  • WE'VE EVEN GOT CHRISTIANS ATTRACTED TO ISLAM
  • 00:55:56.150 --> 00:55:59.180
  • BECAUSE IT'S STRENGTH AND IT'S STRONG,
  • 00:55:59.200 --> 00:56:02.040
  • SO IN THIS ISSUE OF THE PEACE OF GOD,
  • 00:56:02.060 --> 00:56:04.240
  • THE JOY OF GOD, WE MUST LEARN TO WORK WITH THE
  • 00:56:04.260 --> 00:56:07.270
  • POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT AND NOT MISTAKE IT FOR FORCE.
  • 00:56:07.290 --> 00:56:12.100
  • SO THERE'S SO MANY AREAS AS YOU GO INTO THIS.
  • 00:56:12.120 --> 00:56:14.080
  • WE TRY TO FORCE THINGS AND OUT OF THIS COMES
  • 00:56:14.100 --> 00:56:16.180
  • PHYSICAL BODIES FILLED WITH DISEASE,
  • 00:56:16.200 --> 00:56:18.270
  • MENTAL ILLNESSES IN BORN-AGAIN, SPIRIT-FILLED
  • 00:56:18.290 --> 00:56:22.040
  • BELIEVERS AS THEY TRY TO FORCE THINGS.
  • 00:56:22.060 --> 00:56:24.240
  • BUT IN GOD THERE IS A PEACE, A JOY,
  • 00:56:24.260 --> 00:56:26.190
  • AND A POWER THAT OUGHT TO RISE US TO THE TOP.
  • 00:56:26.210 --> 00:56:28.270
  • DAVID, SOLOMON AND MOSES AND JOSHUA COULD BE WORLD
  • 00:56:28.290 --> 00:56:32.200
  • LEADERS THAT THE WORLD LOOKED AND RESPECTED,
  • 00:56:32.220 --> 00:56:35.100
  • AND TODAY IN A NEW COVENANT WITH BETTER
  • 00:56:35.120 --> 00:56:37.060
  • PROMISES, WHY DO WE HAVE THIS VOID WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:56:37.080 --> 00:56:42.050
  • TO CHRISTIANS RISING UP IN THE ARTS?
  • 00:56:42.070 --> 00:56:44.200
  • WE SIMPLY, WHEN I SAY SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY,
  • 00:56:44.220 --> 00:56:47.010
  • IT'S NOT A DOCTRINE AND EVEN WHEN WE SAY ABOUT
  • 00:56:47.030 --> 00:56:48.290
  • GOING DEEPER, ABSOLUTELY WE CAN,
  • 00:56:49.010 --> 00:56:52.000
  • BUT IT'S GOT TO BE WITH US.
  • 00:56:52.020 --> 00:56:53.290
  • LET'S SHARE HOPE.
  • 00:56:54.010 --> 00:56:55.100
  • LET'S SHARE GRACE.
  • 00:56:55.120 --> 00:56:56.140
  • EVEN THE BLESSED LIFE.
  • 00:56:56.160 --> 00:56:57.260
  • LET'S DO IT IN SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY WAY SO WE
  • 00:56:57.280 --> 00:57:02.060
  • CAN BECOME THE LEADERS OF THIS GENERATION.
  • 00:57:02.080 --> 00:57:04.250
  • MATT CROUCH: WHAT IS THE EXCLAMATION POINT YOU
