  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:09:04.150 --> 00:09:05.160
  • I HAVE BEEN SO BLESSED AND HONORED
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:07.060
  • TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WRITE A SONG WITH KATHIE LEE GIFFORD.
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:10.180
  • WE WROTE A SONG CALLED THE GOD WHO SEES.
  • 00:09:10.200 --> 00:09:12.240
  • AND THEN WE WERE BLESSED ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO GO
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:14.140
  • TO THE HOLY LAND, AND KATHIE DIRECTED A FILM,
  • 00:09:14.160 --> 00:09:17.120
  • A SHORT FILM FOR IT. - WOW.
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:18.250
  • - AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR EVERYBODY TO SEE IT.
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:20.090
  • IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT ALREADY, YOU'RE IN FOR A TREAT.
  • 00:09:20.110 --> 00:09:21.270
  • I REALLY BELIEVE YOU ARE, AND I WOULD JUST SAY,
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:24.090
  • HONESTLY, THROUGHOUT ALL OF MY SONGWRITING
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:26.180
  • AND ALL OF THE THINGS I'VE BEEN A PART OF, THIS HAS BY FAR,
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:30.200
  • I BELIEVE BEEN THE MOST MOVING AND IMPACTFUL.
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:33.260
  • AND IT'S JUST SO INTERESTING, JAVEN,
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:35.230
  • NO LIE, BECAUSE YOU KNOW WE'VE BEEN AROUND FOR A MINUTE.
  • 00:09:35.250 --> 00:09:37.260
  • WE'RE NOT OLD, WE'RE JUST SEASONED.
  • 00:09:37.280 --> 00:09:39.180
  • WE'RE SEASONED. - YES, THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:41.070
  • MIX IT UP.
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:42.160
  • - AND THIS BEING THE 20TH YEAR FROM WHEN GOD
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:46.090
  • HAD ALLOWED ME TO WRITE REDEEMER,
  • 00:09:46.110 --> 00:09:48.280
  • 20 YEARS LATER, HE'S BEEN ABLE TO GIVE ME ANOTHER SONG.
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:51.160
  • AND I WILL SAY, FOR REAL, THIS SONG,
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:54.020
  • THE GOD WHO SEES, HAS SO FAR BEEN GARNERING
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:58.060
  • A RESPONSE THAT I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:09:58.080 --> 00:09:59.270
  • - [JAVEN] NO, I BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:00.280
  • - I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE, SO I KNOW
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:01.230
  • IT'S THE HAND OF THE LORD.
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:03.070
  • - IT ALMOST SEEMS AS IF YOU WENT INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:06.200
  • AND KINDA JUST SLEPT AND HUNG OUT WITH JESUS
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:09.130
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT AND JUST CAME OUT WITH A SONG
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:13.080
  • THAT LITERALLY IS STRAIGHT FROM THE THRONE ROOM OF GOD.
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:16.100
  • - TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR IT,
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:17.170
  • AND IT REALLY HAS BEEN ONE OF THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:19.040
  • IT'S SOMETHING, BECAUSE SOMETIMES WHEN YOU'RE WRITING
  • 00:10:19.060 --> 00:10:21.060
  • SONGS AND YOU'RE PART OF IT, SOMETIMES YOU KNOW
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:23.010
  • THAT IT'S SPECIAL, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:10:23.030 --> 00:10:24.150
  • THE WHOLE MAGNITUDE OF IT.
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:25.260
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT'S HOW HE WANTS IT,
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:27.100
  • BECAUSE IT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT WAS A FLESH EFFORT.
  • 00:10:27.120 --> 00:10:30.040
  • IT FELT LIKE THIS WAS OUR OFFERING
  • 00:10:30.060 --> 00:10:31.210
  • THAT WE WERE GIVING TO GOD, AND HE SAID,
  • 00:10:31.230 --> 00:10:33.190
  • I CAN TAKE THE LOAVES AND I CAN TAKE THE FISHES,
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:35.130
  • AND I CAN STILL MULTIPLY IT INTO SOMETHING GREAT
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:37.070
  • FOR EVERYONE ELSE AND SO.
  • 00:10:37.090 --> 00:10:38.130
  • - WHAT IS THE MAIN THING YOU WANT PEOPLE
  • 00:10:38.150 --> 00:10:40.100
  • TO TAKE AWAY FROM THE GOD WHO SEES?
  • 00:10:40.120 --> 00:10:42.220
  • - OH, IS THAT I THINK, ESPECIALLY IN A CULTURE
  • 00:10:42.240 --> 00:10:44.200
  • WHERE WE'RE SO OBSESSED WITH SELFIES AND ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:47.140
  • I'M A GIRL, I CAN TAKE A SELFIE BETTER THAN ANYBODY,
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:49.230
  • I'M JUST SAYING, BUT IN A CULTURE LIKE THAT,
  • 00:10:49.250 --> 00:10:52.210
  • I THINK REALLY WHAT WE'RE CRYING OUT FOR IS TO BE SEEN
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:56.150
  • AND TO BE LOVED FOR WHO WE ARE,
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:58.250
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT THE SONG ADDRESSES THAT ISSUE
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:01.130
  • OF YOU ARE SEEN, YOU ARE KNOWN, AND YOU ARE LOVED.
  • 00:11:01.150 --> 00:11:05.060
  • FULLY EXPOSED, IN THE RAW, I SEE YOU, I KNOW YOU,
  • 00:11:05.080 --> 00:11:08.240
  • AND YOU'RE INVITED TO BE A PART OF MY FAMILY.
  • 00:11:08.260 --> 00:11:10.230
  • - I OFTEN SAY WORSHIP MEANS GOD SEES YOU,
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:14.250
  • THAT WHEN YOU'RE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:11:14.270 --> 00:11:17.010
  • THAT GOD ACTUALLY SEES YOU, THEN YOU ARE
  • 00:11:17.030 --> 00:11:19.280
  • THEN PRONE TO WORSHIP HIM.
  • 00:11:20.000 --> 00:11:21.100
  • I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON'T WORSHIP GOD
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:23.000
  • BECAUSE THEY THINK GOD DOESN'T,
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:24.150
  • IT'S ONLY FOR THE SINGERS ON STAGE.
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:26.140
  • BUT HE SEES US ALL, IS WHAT I'M SAYING.
  • 00:11:26.160 --> 00:11:28.110
  • - YOU'RE RIGHT, AND I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE WILL THINK
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:30.060
  • THAT IF HE DOES SEE ME, HE DOESN'T LIKE ME.
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:32.180
  • BUT I THINK THIS SONG REALLY DEALS WITH THE FACT
  • 00:11:32.200 --> 00:11:35.040
  • OF YES, HE SEES YOU, AND HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:37.130
  • - YEAH, HE LIKES WHAT HE SEES.
  • 00:11:37.150 --> 00:11:39.110
  • - HE LIKES WHAT HE SEES, HE LIKES WHAT HE SEES.
  • 00:11:39.130 --> 00:11:40.150
  • - SOMEBODY CLAP YOUR HANDS FOR THAT,
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:42.020
  • THAT'S PRETTY GOOD, RIGHT?
  • 00:11:42.040 --> 00:11:43.100
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:11:43.120 --> 00:11:44.230
  • HE LIKES WHAT HE SEES, THAT'S A GOOD WAY TO SAY THAT.
  • 00:11:44.250 --> 00:11:46.090
  • ALL RIGHT, NICOLE, YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY WRITER ON THIS SONG,
  • 00:11:46.110 --> 00:11:48.210
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT-- - NO, I'M NOT!
  • 00:11:48.230 --> 00:11:50.160

  • AND THERE WASN'T, THERE WAS NO FILM CULTURE
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:29.010
  • OR ANYTHING THERE, NOT MUCH OF A THEATER CULTURE EITHER.
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:33.070
  • BUT YOU CAN MAKE MUSIC ANYWHERE,
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:34.290
  • AND MY SISTER AND I STARTED SINGING
  • 00:14:35.010 --> 00:14:36.130
  • IN A GROUP CALLED PENNSYLVANIA NEXT RIGHT
  • 00:14:36.150 --> 00:14:38.070
  • AND STARTED DOING GIGS IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
  • 00:14:38.090 --> 00:14:41.110
  • AND THAT SORT OF THING.
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:42.260
  • THEN I JUST GOT ON A, IT WAS A MUSICAL THING AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:14:42.280 --> 00:14:46.160
  • I WENT TO CALIFORNIA TO BECOME AN ACTRESS
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:50.260
  • AND THINKING THAT I NEVER COULD,
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:55.260
  • 'CAUSE I HAD NONE OF THE SKILLS.
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:57.250
  • WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TILL WE TRY SOMETHING.
  • 00:14:57.270 --> 00:15:00.050
  • I KNEW I DIDN'T LIKE SCHOOL. (LAUGHING)
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:02.110
  • I KNEW I DIDN'T WANNA GO TO SCHOOL AND LEARN HOW TO ACT,
  • 00:15:02.130 --> 00:15:04.120
  • I WANTED TO ACT AND LEARN THAT WAY.
  • 00:15:04.140 --> 00:15:06.180
  • SO I DIDN'T GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE,
  • 00:15:06.200 --> 00:15:10.020
  • AND MY SON, IT'S FUNNY, 'CAUSE MY SON GRADUATED
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:12.070
  • FROM OXFORD UNIVERSITY WITH HIS MASTER'S DEGREE
  • 00:15:12.090 --> 00:15:15.020
  • IN SCREENWRITING. - COME ON.
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:16.190
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:15:16.210 --> 00:15:19.210
  • - BUT MY DAUGHTER DROPPED OUT OF USC, SO.
  • 00:15:19.230 --> 00:15:23.180
  • (LAUGHING)
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:25.030
  • - SO THE GUYS ARE DOING GOOD--
  • 00:15:25.050 --> 00:15:26.160
  • - I SAID, I DID OKAY, CODY, OKAY?
  • 00:15:26.180 --> 00:15:28.020
  • NO JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:29.180
  • - SO I HEARD SOMEWHERE THAT YOU HAVE, WHAT, 13 ALBUMS?
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:32.270
  • HOW MANY? - 16.
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:34.050
  • - EXCUSE ME, 16 ALBUMS.
  • 00:15:34.070 --> 00:15:35.290
  • - I DID 16 ALBUMS DURING MY MUSICAL CAREER.
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:38.280
  • - AND THEN YOU HAVE HOW MANY BESTSELLING BOOKS?
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:42.030
  • - I'VE WRITTEN 16 BOOKS, BUT I THINK FOUR OF 'EM
  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:44.290
  • WERE BESTSELLERS, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:15:45.010 --> 00:15:47.000
  • - WOW. - I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:48.200
  • - IS THIS AMAZING OR WHAT?
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:50.000
  • - NO, NOT, I MEAN-- (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:15:50.020 --> 00:15:52.100
  • - NO, THAT'S REALLY
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:53.190
  • AN INCREDIBLE ACCOMP, I CAN'T WRITE ONE BOOK.
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:56.030
  • - YEAH, YOU KNOW THIS LAST ONE THAT WAS
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:57.180
  • A LITTLE CHILDREN ONE, BUT THE ONE BEFORE THAT
  • 00:15:57.200 --> 00:16:01.000
  • IS REALLY A BIG PART OF WHAT NICOLE AND I WERE DOING TOO.
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:03.060
  • IT'S CALLED THE ROCK, THE ROAD, AND THE RABBI.
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:05.090
  • AND I WROTE IT WITH MY FRIEND, A RABBINICAL RABBI
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:07.170
  • NAMED DR. JASON, WELL HE'S NOT DR. RABBI,
  • 00:16:07.190 --> 00:16:09.250
  • HE ACTUALLY IS, HE'S A RABBI, BOY,
  • 00:16:09.270 --> 00:16:11.260
  • THESE GUYS GET THEIR PHD IN BIBLICAL STUDIES.
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:15.040
  • AND I JUST FELT COMPELLED TO WRITE IT BECAUSE,
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:18.130
  • AND IT WAS NOT A FUN BOOK TO WRITE.
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:20.020
  • I LIKE TO WRITE, I LIKE TO HAVE FUN,
  • 00:16:20.040 --> 00:16:21.180
  • AND THIS ONE WAS ACADEMIC IN NATURE,
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.200
  • BUT MY LIFE WAS TRANSFORMED GOING TO ISRAEL
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:26.130
  • AND STUDYING IN THE RABBINICAL WAY.
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:28.090
  • I'D BEEN BEFORE AS A STUDENT,
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:30.070
  • BUT I DON'T LIKE TO GO AS A TOURIST.
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:33.060
  • YOU GO TO DISNEY WORLD AS A TOURIST.
  • 00:16:33.080 --> 00:16:34.290
  • YOU GO TO ISRAEL TO STUDY THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:36.280
  • AND BE TRANSFORMED BY IT. - AMEN.
  • 00:16:37.000 --> 00:16:38.260
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) - I WENT ON MY FIRST,
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:41.000
  • THANK YOU, RABBINICAL TRIP IN 2012 WITH MY HUSBAND.
  • 00:16:41.020 --> 00:16:46.220
  • FRANK DIDN'T WANNA GO.
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.010
  • HE, AT FIRST, WE WERE CLIMBING UP A MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.200
  • CLIMBING UP A MOUNTAIN, AND HE LOOKS AT ME
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:51.180
  • AND SAYS, "I'M ON THE FIRST PLANE OUTTA HERE TOMORROW."
  • 00:16:51.200 --> 00:16:55.170
  • UNTIL WE GOT TO THE TOP, AND THEN HE GOT
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:57.240
  • THE GREATEST TEACHING HE'D EVER RECEIVED IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE,
  • 00:16:57.260 --> 00:16:59.290
  • AND HE SAID, "WHAT MOUNTAIN ARE WE CLIMBING TOMORROW?"
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:02.060
  • - COME ON. - YEAH.
  • 00:17:02.080 --> 00:17:04.100
  • SO THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO
  • 00:17:04.120 --> 00:17:05.170
  • IS ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GO TO THE HOLY LAND,
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:07.000
  • STUDY THE WORD OF GOD WHERE ALL THESE THINGS HAPPENED,
  • 00:17:07.020 --> 00:17:10.140
  • BUT PLEASE STUDY IT IN THE ORIGINAL TEXTS
  • 00:17:10.160 --> 00:17:13.150
  • OF GREEK AND HEBREW, BECAUSE SO MANY HORRENDOUS TRANSLATIONS
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:18.000
  • OF THE BIBLE, WE TALK ABOUT THIS ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:20.000
  • JUST, WE THINK WE'RE STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:23.030
  • AND WE'RE NOT, BECAUSE IT'S NOT THE ORIGINAL GREEK,
  • 00:17:23.050 --> 00:17:25.250
  • AND IT'S NOT THE ORIGINAL HEBREW, AND IT'S SLOPPY.
  • 00:17:25.270 --> 00:17:30.160
  • AND AS A RESULT, OUR WORD OF GOD GETS SLOPPY.
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:34.050
  • AND I'M GONNA BASE MY LIFE ON THE TRUTH.
  • 00:17:34.070 --> 00:17:36.050
  • - [JAVEN] AMEN.
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:37.200
  • - AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT AS FOR GOD, HIS WAYS ARE PERFECT.
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:39.210
  • THE WORD OF THE LORD IS FLAWLESS.
  • 00:17:39.230 --> 00:17:41.200
  • LET'S STUDY HIS FLAWLESS WORD.
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:44.170
  • AND PEOPLE GET MAD AT ME, 'CAUSE THEY LOVE
  • 00:17:44.190 --> 00:17:45.280
  • THEIR KING JAMES VERSION.
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:48.010
  • BUT I'M SORRY, THAT WAS WRITTEN HUNDREDS
  • 00:17:48.030 --> 00:17:50.020
  • AND HUNDREDS OF YEARS AFTER JESUS,
  • 00:17:50.040 --> 00:17:52.060
  • AND AFTER EVERYBODY IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:54.170
  • AND JESUS DID NOT SPEAK THE KING'S ENGLISH.
  • 00:17:54.190 --> 00:17:57.180
  • (AUDIENCE CHUCKLING)
  • 00:17:57.200 --> 00:17:58.270
  • AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T, WHAT ARE YOU SAYING,
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:00.090
  • JESUS WAS JEWISH, WHAT? (LAUGHING)
  • 00:18:00.110 --> 00:18:03.070
  • WHAT, MARY WAS JEWISH? - HE DIDN'T SAY THUS, THOU?
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:05.180
  • - I THOUGHT MARY WAS CATHOLIC.
  • 00:18:05.200 --> 00:18:07.190
  • I MEAN, THERE'S SO MUCH BIBLICAL ILLITERACY.
  • 00:18:07.210 --> 00:18:12.230
  • AND WE'VE GOTTA STOP IT, BECAUSE WE ARE GRADUATING PEOPLE
  • 00:18:12.250 --> 00:18:15.240
  • OUT OF OUR SEMINARIES WHO STILL THINK JESUS WAS A CARPENTER.
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:19.030
  • HE WAS NOT A CARPENTER, THAT'S A BAD TRANSLATION,
  • 00:18:19.050 --> 00:18:22.040
  • BECAUSE THESE ENGLISH GUYS DOING THE KING JAMES VERSION
  • 00:18:22.060 --> 00:18:25.020
  • HAD NEVER BEEN TO ISRAEL, AND IT SAID,
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:27.040
  • TEKTON IS THE GREEK WORD.
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:28.220
  • WELL, IF YOU LOOK THAT UP IN THE GREEK,
  • 00:18:28.240 --> 00:18:30.020
  • IT MEANS BUILDER/ARCHITECT.
  • 00:18:30.040 --> 00:18:33.210
  • WELL, OF COURSE, HE'S A ARCHITECT.
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:35.150
  • HE WAS THE ARCHITECT OF THE WORLD, RIGHT?
  • 00:18:35.170 --> 00:18:37.010
  • HE WAS THERE AT THE BEGINNING WITH EVERYTHING.
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:38.220
  • BUT THEY GO, OH, HE WAS A CARPENTER LIKE US.
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:41.000
  • WELL, THERE WERE NO BUILDABLE TREES
  • 00:18:41.020 --> 00:18:43.040
  • IN FIRST CENTURY AD ISRAEL. - WOW.
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:45.220
  • - REMEMBER IN THE SCRIPTURES, EVERYTHING CAME DOWN,
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:47.090
  • FLOATING DOWN BY THE VIA MARIS,
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:50.050
  • WHICH IS THE ROAD OF THE SEA, ON THE MEDITERRANEAN
  • 00:18:50.070 --> 00:18:53.230
  • AND FLOATED DOWN TO ANCIENT JOPPA
  • 00:18:53.250 --> 00:18:55.230
  • WHICH IS PRESENT DAY TEL AVIV, AND THEN THE RAFTS
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:59.110
  • WERE TAKEN APART AND THEN TAKEN,
  • 00:18:59.130 --> 00:19:01.180
  • AND ALL THESE MAGNIFICENT, THESE BEAMS OF WOOD
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:04.260
  • WERE TRANSPORTED ACROSS LAND.
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:07.080
  • THAT'S HOW HEROD BUILT ALL OF HIS,
  • 00:19:07.100 --> 00:19:09.130
  • HE DIDN'T BUILD 'EM, THERE WAS NO BUILDABLES,
  • 00:19:09.150 --> 00:19:12.270
  • SO JESUS WAS A STONE MASON.
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:15.130
  • - SO ONE OF THE THINGS I TOLD THE AUDIENCE
  • 00:19:15.150 --> 00:19:17.100
  • BEFORE YOU CAME OUT, I SAID, WHEN SHE STARTS TALKING,
  • 00:19:17.120 --> 00:19:19.260
  • YOU'RE GONNA REALIZE, SHE'S ACTUALLY STUDIED
  • 00:19:19.280 --> 00:19:21.190
  • THE WORD OF GOD. - YES, YES, YES.
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:23.120
  • - Y'ALL SEE WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:24.250
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:19:24.270 --> 00:19:26.220
  • - THANK YOU, I DON'T SLEEP.
  • 00:19:26.240 --> 00:19:28.160
  • I'M TOTALLY POST-MENOPAUSAL, I HAVEN'T SLEPT IN YEARS.
  • 00:19:28.180 --> 00:19:31.200
  • I GOTTA DO SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
  • 00:19:31.220 --> 00:19:33.060
  • - [JAVEN] I'MMA STAY AWAY FROM THAT, BUT
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:34.190
  • A LOTTA PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THAT YOUR BROTHER IS A PASTOR.
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:38.080
  • - HE JUST RETIRED. - JUST RETIRED.
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:39.130
  • - HE JUST RETIRED.
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:40.240
  • - BEAUTIFUL CHURCH IN NEW YORK.
  • 00:19:40.260 --> 00:19:42.020
  • - YES, HE'S PASTORING EVER SINCE HE GOT OUT
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:43.250
  • OF WASHINGTON BIBLE COLLEGE, BUT STILL SPEAKING,
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:47.040
  • STILL TAKING ENGAGEMENTS AND STUFF.
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:48.120
  • - GREAT PREACHER, AND NOW YOU ARE STEPPING BACK
  • 00:19:48.140 --> 00:19:50.180
  • FROM TV ALL TOGETHER? - HONEY, I'M GONE.
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:52.260
  • - SHE'S GONE, GONE.
  • 00:19:52.280 --> 00:19:54.220
  • AND FOR YOU, THIS NEXT SEASON, I CALL IT YOUR NOW SEASON.
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:19:59.090
  • - YES. - THIS NOW SEASON FOR YOU
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:01.010
  • IS ALL ABOUT DIRECTING, PRODUCING
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:03.260
  • AND PUTTING OUT PROJECTS, AND IT SEEMS TO ME
  • 00:20:03.280 --> 00:20:06.000
  • LIKE YOU'RE DOING A LOT OF PROJECTS THAT HAVE PURPOSE ON IT
  • 00:20:06.020 --> 00:20:09.220
  • AS IT PERTAINS TO THE FAITH, IS THAT RIGHT?
  • 00:20:09.240 --> 00:20:11.260
  • IS THAT ACCURATE?
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:12.220
  • - I'M DOING A LOT OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:14.070
  • ALL I WANTED TO BE WHEN I WAS GROWING,
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:15.210
  • I WROTE WALT DISNEY A LETTER WHEN I WAS A YOUNG GIRL,
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:18.050
  • AND I SAID, I KNOW YOU LOVE ANNETTE FUNICELLO
  • 00:20:18.070 --> 00:20:20.120
  • AND HAYLEY MILLS, BUT YOU REALLY NEED TO MEET ME.
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:22.200
  • - AWW, HOW SWEET. (AUDIENCE LAUGHING)
  • 00:20:22.220 --> 00:20:24.240
  • - AND I SAID, I'M KNOWN FOR MY EXPRESSIONS.
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:26.100
  • AND MY MOM AND DAD SENT IT OFF FOR ME,
  • 00:20:26.120 --> 00:20:28.140
  • AND I GOT A FORM LETTER BACK.
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:30.100
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS A FORM LETTER.
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:31.240
  • IT SAID WALT DISNEY, I COULD READ.
  • 00:20:31.260 --> 00:20:34.010
  • SO HE SAID, YOU KNOW, YOU STUDY KATHIE,
  • 00:20:34.030 --> 00:20:35.250
  • AND MAYBE SOMEDAY, WE'LL WORK ON MAKING SOME MOVIES.
  • 00:20:35.270 --> 00:20:37.240
  • AND I DID END UP DOING SOME FILMS FOR DISNEY,
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:39.190
  • 'CAUSE I, AND MY SHOW WITH REGIS
  • 00:20:39.210 --> 00:20:41.200
  • WAS SYNDICATED BY THE DISNEY COMPANY,
  • 00:20:41.220 --> 00:20:43.130
  • SO I REALLY BELIEVE, AND THAT'S THE OTHER LITTLE BOOK
  • 00:20:43.150 --> 00:20:46.220
  • YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT, THE GIFT THAT I CAN GIVE.
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:48.250
  • WHEN DAVID TALKED ABOUT HOW WE ARE WONDERFULLY
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:51.130
  • AND FEARFULLY MADE IN OUR MOTHER'S WOMBS,
  • 00:20:51.150 --> 00:20:53.240
  • IN THAT SECRET PLACE, THAT HIDDEN PLACE,
  • 00:20:53.260 --> 00:20:56.070
  • GOD SAW US THERE BEFORE HE LAID THE FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:20:56.090 --> 00:21:00.230
  • OF THE WORLD, AND HE PLACED EVERY ONE OF YOUR GIFTS
  • 00:21:00.250 --> 00:21:03.080
  • IN YOUR MOTHER'S WOMB, YOURS, MINE.
  • 00:21:03.100 --> 00:21:05.180
  • AND YET, OUR CHILDREN COME INTO THIS WORLD,

  • AND WHAT'S THE FIRST THING WE DO?
  • 00:21:08.020 --> 00:21:09.130
  • WE SAY TO THEM, WHAT DO YOU WANNA BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
  • 00:21:09.150 --> 00:21:11.170
  • NO, WHAT ARE YOU ALREADY?
  • 00:21:11.190 --> 00:21:13.280

  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:16.190
  • AND HIS PURPOSES? (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:21:16.210 --> 00:21:18.120
  • - YEAH, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL. - YEAH.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:19.230
  • - TALK ABOUT THE FOUNDATION THAT YOU JUST STARTED.
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:22.280
  • YOU JUST, HOW OLD IS THE FOUNDATION, BY THE WAY?
  • 00:21:23.000 --> 00:21:25.140
  • IS IT THE ROCK, THE RABBI AND THE ROAD?
  • 00:21:25.160 --> 00:21:27.000
  • - JUST STARTED IT WHEN I WROTE THIS BOOK.
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:28.090
  • THIS PAST YEAR, I HAD A VERY SURPRISING
  • 00:21:28.110 --> 00:21:30.230
  • BIG PUBLISHING PHENOMENON.
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:32.240
  • I DIDN'T THINK THE ROCK, THE ROAD AND THE RABBI,
  • 00:21:32.260 --> 00:21:34.160
  • WITH MY FRIEND RABBI SOBEL,
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:37.060
  • OF US TRUDGING THROUGH, ME LOOKING LIKE STEVEN SPIELBERG,
  • 00:21:37.080 --> 00:21:39.280
  • WAS GONNA BE A SUCCESS.
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:42.240
  • I THOUGHT IT, I KNEW I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO IT,
  • 00:21:42.260 --> 00:21:44.190
  • BUT NOT A SUCCESS THAT YOU WOULD EXPECT.
  • 00:21:44.210 --> 00:21:47.000
  • IT'S A REALLY REALLY SOLID PUBLISHING SUCCESS.
  • 00:21:47.020 --> 00:21:50.110
  • SO ALL OF THE MONEY THAT I MADE
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:51.210
  • FROM THAT I PUT INTO A FOUNDATION.
  • 00:21:51.230 --> 00:21:54.200
  • INITIALLY, I THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE TO SEND PEOPLE
  • 00:21:54.220 --> 00:21:56.190
  • TO ISRAEL TO STUDY THE RABBINIC WAY.
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:59.010
  • NOW, MY FOUNDATION, YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE TO THAT.
  • 00:21:59.030 --> 00:22:01.070
  • THERE'S ALL KINDS OF RULES, UGH.
  • 00:22:01.090 --> 00:22:04.100
  • ANYWAY, SO NOW I'M FUNDING THESE MOVIES
  • 00:22:04.120 --> 00:22:09.250
  • TO SHOW THE WORLD, TELL THE WORLD ABOUT THE BIBLE,
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:13.200
  • BUT SET TO MUSIC, THEY'RE CALLED ORATORIOS.
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:16.230
  • AND NICOLE GIVES, I THINK, THE PERFORMANCE OF A LIFETIME
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:19.210
  • IN THIS ONE THAT YOU ALL ARE GOING TO SEE.
  • 00:22:19.230 --> 00:22:23.070
  • SHE AND I WROTE THIS TOGETHER, BUT THERE WAS NO QUESTION
  • 00:22:23.090 --> 00:22:25.120
  • FROM DAY ONE, IT HAD TO JUST BE NICOLE.
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:27.150
  • I COULD SEE THIS HAIR, AND THIS FACE, AND THIS SKIN
  • 00:22:27.170 --> 00:22:30.040
  • UP AGAINST THAT DESERT I LOVE SO MUCH.
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:33.040
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) (JAVEN LAUGHING)
  • 00:22:33.060 --> 00:22:34.270
  • AND I STARTED-- - HOW DID YOU GUYS MEET?
  • 00:22:34.290 --> 00:22:37.020
  • - RIGHT HERE IN FRANKLIN, IN FRANKLIN.
  • 00:22:37.040 --> 00:22:39.120
  • A MUTUAL FRIEND PUT US TOGETHER.
  • 00:22:39.140 --> 00:22:41.140
  • - DID YOU ALREADY KNOW WHO SHE WAS?
  • 00:22:41.160 --> 00:22:43.120
  • - I KNEW OF HER, OF COURSE, AND HER MUSIC,
  • 00:22:43.140 --> 00:22:44.130
  • BUT I'D NEVER MET HER.
  • 00:22:44.150 --> 00:22:45.260
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THAT SHE DIDN'T COLLABORATE VERY OFTEN,
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:48.020
  • AND SHE WASN'T TOO SURE ABOUT SITTING DOWN WITH ME.
  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:50.050
  • - SHY.
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:51.080
  • - WELL, LET ME TELL YOU, LET ME
  • 00:22:51.100 --> 00:22:52.190
  • LET YOU IN ON A LITTLE SECRET.
  • 00:22:52.210 --> 00:22:53.260
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT ME AND NICOLE TALKED ABOUT,
  • 00:22:53.280 --> 00:22:55.180
  • I SAID, "HOW IS SHE AS A WRITER?"
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:56.230
  • WE WAS TALKING BEHIND YOUR BACK.
  • 00:22:56.250 --> 00:22:58.260
  • SHE, JUST LOOK AT HER FACE, OH.
  • 00:22:58.280 --> 00:23:00.270
  • - I'M ON TO YOU. (JAVEN LAUGHING)
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:02.210
  • - AND SHE SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:23:02.230 --> 00:23:04.090
  • TELL EVERYBODY WHAT YOU SAID.
  • 00:23:04.110 --> 00:23:05.240
  • - I SAID, "SURPRISINGLY, SHE IS ONE OF THE FINEST WRITERS
  • 00:23:05.260 --> 00:23:09.010
  • "I'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED." - WOW.
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:10.290
  • - [NICOLE] SHE IS BRILLIANT, SHE IS A MASTER.
  • 00:23:11.010 --> 00:23:12.280
  • - THANK YOU. - AND SHE REALLY IS.
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:14.090
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) - ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ME?
  • 00:23:14.110 --> 00:23:15.270
  • - THAT'S YOU, YEAH. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:23:15.290 --> 00:23:17.050
  • - ALL RIGHT, SO LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS SONG.
  • 00:23:17.070 --> 00:23:19.030
  • LET'S TALK, THE NAME OF THE SONG IS ENTITLED
  • 00:23:19.050 --> 00:23:21.040
  • THE GOD WHO SEES. - THE GOD WHO SEES, YES.
  • 00:23:21.060 --> 00:23:23.120
  • - IN THE SONG, THERE ARE FIVE MAIN CHARACTERS
  • 00:23:23.140 --> 00:23:26.200
  • THAT YOU SPEAK ABOUT, OKAY? - RIGHT.
  • 00:23:26.220 --> 00:23:28.120
  • - NOW, AND THEN LET ME SEE IF I CAN REMEMBER THEM CORRECTLY.
  • 00:23:28.140 --> 00:23:31.260
  • - YEAH, SURE, YOU WILL. - DON'T BE TOO HARD ON ME.
  • 00:23:31.280 --> 00:23:33.030
  • OKAY, BUT I BELIEVE WE HAVE HAGAR.
  • 00:23:33.050 --> 00:23:35.120
  • - YES. - WE HAVE RUTH.
  • 00:23:35.140 --> 00:23:36.280
  • - YES. - I'M WANTING TO SAY DAVID?
  • 00:23:37.000 --> 00:23:39.290
  • - YES. - AND THEN MARY,
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:41.110
  • AND THEN JESUS. - YES.
  • 00:23:41.130 --> 00:23:42.240
  • - SO WHY DID Y'ALL START THIS SONG OFF WITH HAGAR?
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:48.080
  • - YOU START. - GO AHEAD.
  • 00:23:48.100 --> 00:23:49.200
  • - YOU KNOW HOW THE LORD PLACES THINGS ON YOUR HEART
  • 00:23:49.220 --> 00:23:51.150
  • AND THEN YOU CAN'T GET 'EM OFF FOR AWHILE?
  • 00:23:51.170 --> 00:23:53.160
  • AND I'M A WRITER, I HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS,
  • 00:23:53.180 --> 00:23:56.070
  • AND I KNOW THE LORD PLACES IDEAS.
  • 00:23:56.090 --> 00:23:58.100
  • AND THAT'S WHERE I LITERALLY AM UP AT TWO O'CLOCK
  • 00:23:58.120 --> 00:24:00.280
  • ALMOST EVERY SINGLE MORNING.
  • 00:24:01.000 --> 00:24:02.080
  • LAST NIGHT I WAS UP AT 11:45 P.M.,
  • 00:24:02.100 --> 00:24:04.060
  • BEFORE IT WAS EVEN THE NEXT DAY,
  • 00:24:04.080 --> 00:24:05.130
  • AND I'M UP, AND I WRITE, AND I GET INTO THE WORD.
  • 00:24:05.150 --> 00:24:08.250
  • AND I KNEW I HAD TO DO SOMETHING WITH HAGAR.
  • 00:24:08.270 --> 00:24:14.090
  • THE PROFOUND LONELINESS AND DESPAIR
  • 00:24:14.110 --> 00:24:17.080
  • THAT SHE WAS THROWN INTO.
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:18.230
  • - SO TELL, FOR PEOPLE THAT DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:24:18.250 --> 00:24:20.030
  • TELL A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHO HAGAR IS.
  • 00:24:20.050 --> 00:24:21.260
  • - HAGAR IS LIKE A FOOTNOTE IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:24:21.280 --> 00:24:23.100
  • BUT THERE'S NOTHING THAT'S RANDOM IN THE BIBLE AT ALL.
  • 00:24:23.120 --> 00:24:25.150
  • HAGAR WAS SARAH'S HANDMAIDEN.
  • 00:24:25.170 --> 00:24:28.110
  • ABRAHAM AND SARAH, HE WAS THE PATRIARCH OF THE FAITH,
  • 00:24:28.130 --> 00:24:32.130
  • AND HIS WIFE, SARAH, AND IT'S A VERY UGLY EPISODE
  • 00:24:32.150 --> 00:24:35.290
  • IN THEIR LIVES, IT REALLY IS.
  • 00:24:36.010 --> 00:24:39.120
  • I DON'T WANNA GO IN ALL TOO MUCH OF IT,
  • 00:24:39.140 --> 00:24:41.000
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T IN OUR SONG.
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:42.080
  • WE JUST TELL ABOUT HER WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:24:42.100 --> 00:24:44.280
  • SHE'S ABANDONED,
  • 00:24:45.000 --> 00:24:46.140
  • AND LEFT TO DIE WITH HER SON IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:24:46.160 --> 00:24:50.000
  • AND IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN TO THE DESERT IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:24:50.020 --> 00:24:52.090
  • YOU WILL NOT LAST VERY LONG.
  • 00:24:52.110 --> 00:24:54.120
  • AND IN HER DESPAIR, SHE CRIES OUT,
  • 00:24:54.140 --> 00:24:56.170
  • AND IT'S THE FIRST TIME IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:24:56.190 --> 00:24:58.020
  • THAT A NAME IS GIVEN, EL-ROI.
  • 00:24:58.040 --> 00:25:00.240
  • I DON'T THINK I PRONOUNCED IT RIGHT,
  • 00:25:00.260 --> 00:25:01.290
  • MY HEBREW IS NOT TOO GOOD.
  • 00:25:02.010 --> 00:25:03.170
  • BUT IT MEANS THE GOD WHO SEES.
  • 00:25:03.190 --> 00:25:06.140
  • - GOD WHO SEES. - THE LIVING ONE WHO SEES ME.
  • 00:25:06.160 --> 00:25:08.060
  • AND I WAS PROFOUNDLY AFFECTED BY HER,
  • 00:25:08.080 --> 00:25:12.050
  • AND THEN, FOR THE FIRST TIME,
  • 00:25:12.070 --> 00:25:13.240
  • AND I'VE READ THE BIBLE ALL THE WAY THROUGH 11 TIMES.
  • 00:25:13.260 --> 00:25:17.080
  • - WOW. - BUT I'VE READ IT
  • 00:25:17.100 --> 00:25:18.150
  • MY WHOLE LIFE, SO I FEEL LIKE I'M PRETTY,
  • 00:25:18.170 --> 00:25:20.230
  • I'VE SEEN EVERY SCRIPTURE, RIGHT?
  • 00:25:20.250 --> 00:25:23.230
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN, I SEE ZECHARIAH 2:5.
  • 00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:26.120
  • I'D NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE, AND IT SAYS,
  • 00:25:26.140 --> 00:25:28.220
  • I WILL BE A RING OF FIRE AROUND HER.
  • 00:25:28.240 --> 00:25:32.070
  • I WILL BE THE GLORY IN HER MIDST.
  • 00:25:32.090 --> 00:25:34.230
  • SO WHEN THIS BEAUTIFUL LADY AND I GOT TOGETHER TO WRITE,
  • 00:25:34.250 --> 00:25:37.130
  • I SAID, "YOU KNOW WHAT, NICOLE,
  • 00:25:37.150 --> 00:25:39.080
  • "I'VE BEEN THINKING SO MUCH ABOUT HAGAR
  • 00:25:39.100 --> 00:25:40.230
  • "AND ABOUT BEING IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:25:40.250 --> 00:25:43.080
  • "BUT THAT GOD'S PROMISES ARE FOR HER,
  • 00:25:43.100 --> 00:25:45.210
  • "AND HE WILL BE THE RING OF FIRE OF PROTECTION AROUND HER.
  • 00:25:45.230 --> 00:25:48.210
  • "AND HE WILL BE THE GLORY IN HER MIDST."
  • 00:25:48.230 --> 00:25:50.090
  • AND THAT'S WHERE THE WHOLE THING CAME FROM.
  • 00:25:50.110 --> 00:25:52.210
  • - ALL RIGHT, AND HAGAR FOR YOU MEANS WHAT?
  • 00:25:52.230 --> 00:25:54.220
  • SHE REPRESENTS? - SINGLE MOTHERS.
  • 00:25:54.240 --> 00:25:56.290
  • SHE REPRESENTS THOSE WHO HAVE FELT
  • 00:25:57.010 --> 00:25:59.190
  • AS IF THEY WERE MARGINALIZED OR DOWN AND OUT,
  • 00:25:59.210 --> 00:26:02.160
  • AND EVEN THOUGH HAGAR, SHE MADE SOME MISTAKES,
  • 00:26:02.180 --> 00:26:05.060
  • AND AT THE SAME TIME, ILL WAS DONE TOWARD HER.
  • 00:26:05.080 --> 00:26:08.140
  • BUT IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL, GOD SHOWED UP.
  • 00:26:08.160 --> 00:26:10.250
  • AND THAT'S JUST A WITNESS TO ME AND THOSE WHO ARE LIKE ME,
  • 00:26:10.270 --> 00:26:14.080
  • THAT GOD SEES US, HE KNOWS US, AND HE'LL SHOW UP.
  • 00:26:14.100 --> 00:26:16.190
  • - YEAH, IT'S INTERESTING THAT SHE NAMES HER SON ISHMAEL,
  • 00:26:16.210 --> 00:26:19.090
  • WHICH MEANS THE GOD WHO HEARS. - RIGHT.
  • 00:26:19.110 --> 00:26:21.160
  • - SO THE GOD WHO SEES AND THE GOD WHO HEARS.
  • 00:26:21.180 --> 00:26:23.120
  • LET'S KEEP GOING, THEN WE GO TO MARY, NO,
  • 00:26:23.140 --> 00:26:26.030
  • WE GO TO RUTH. - RUTH.
  • 00:26:26.050 --> 00:26:27.110
  • - WHY DO WE HAVE TO PUT RUTH IN THIS?
  • 00:26:27.130 --> 00:26:29.140
  • - BECAUSE WE LOVE RUTH.
  • 00:26:29.160 --> 00:26:30.100
  • - WELL, WE LOVE RUTH.
  • 00:26:30.120 --> 00:26:31.180
  • AT THE TIME, WE WROTE THAT FIRST PART TOGETHER,
  • 00:26:31.200 --> 00:26:34.040
  • THEN I WENT BACK TO GREENWICH, WHERE I LIVE
  • 00:26:34.060 --> 00:26:36.040
  • IN CONNECTICUT, AND STARTED WRITING,
  • 00:26:36.060 --> 00:26:37.100
  • 'CAUSE NICOLE WAS DOING CONSTANT WORKS
  • 00:26:37.120 --> 00:26:39.030
  • AND GOING TO AFRICA AND EVERYTHING,
  • 00:26:39.050 --> 00:26:40.140
  • SO I TOOK THAT TIME TO WRITE THE REST OF THE SONG,
  • 00:26:40.160 --> 00:26:43.010
  • PRETTY MUCH, AND WE WORKED ON IT TOGETHER.
  • 00:26:43.030 --> 00:26:44.210
  • BUT ANYWAY, THEN SHE WROTE ALMOST ALL OF THAT NARRATIVE
  • 00:26:44.230 --> 00:26:47.130
  • THAT'S IN THERE, AND THAT'S A FIRST TAKE.
  • 00:26:47.150 --> 00:26:49.230
  • WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THIS, WE KNEW WE WERE
  • 00:26:49.250 --> 00:26:52.020
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:26:52.040 --> 00:26:53.030
  • WE THOUGHT WE WERE MAKING THE DEMO.
  • 00:26:53.050 --> 00:26:54.090
  • WAIT TILL YOU HEAR, WAIT TILL YOU HEAR
  • 00:26:54.110 --> 00:26:55.280
  • WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT DID THROUGH HER.
  • 00:26:56.000 --> 00:26:58.060
  • BUT ANYWAY, ALL OF A SUDDEN, I STARTED THINKING
  • 00:26:58.080 --> 00:27:01.010
  • ABOUT RING OF FIRE, AND THEN, ON THE DESERT EXPERIENCES,
  • 00:27:01.030 --> 00:27:05.240
  • AND TO THINK OF RUTH'S DESPAIR, LOSING HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:27:05.260 --> 00:27:09.290
  • THEN LIVING WITH HER MOTHER IN LAW
  • 00:27:10.010 --> 00:27:11.200
  • AND HAVING NEVER BEEN TO BETHLEHEM
  • 00:27:11.220 --> 00:27:14.050
  • AND THEN IT CAME TO ME, I WILL PUT,
  • 00:27:14.070 --> 00:27:17.060
  • INSTEAD OF THE RING OF FIRE,
  • 00:27:17.080 --> 00:27:18.240
  • I WILL PUT A RING AROUND HER FINGER.
  • 00:27:18.260 --> 00:27:21.210
  • - I WILL BLESS. - I WILL BLESS THE CHILD
  • 00:27:21.230 --> 00:27:23.070
  • WITHIN HER WOMB, AND WHAT WAS THAT CHILD?
  • 00:27:23.090 --> 00:27:24.250
  • DAVID'S GRANDMOTHER, AND WHO DID THE MESSIAH COME FROM
  • 00:27:24.270 --> 00:27:28.240
  • THE LINEAGE OF, DAVID.
  • 00:27:28.260 --> 00:27:31.050
  • SO RUTH WAS A POWERFUL, POWERFUL,
  • 00:27:31.070 --> 00:27:32.260
  • AND WHAT WAS RUTH, SHE WAS A WIDOW,
  • 00:27:32.280 --> 00:27:34.280
  • AND SHE WAS AN IMMIGRANT. - WOW, WOW.
  • 00:27:35.000 --> 00:27:37.130
  • - RIGHT, THESE STORIES, ALTHOUGH THEY'RE ANCIENT,
  • 00:27:37.150 --> 00:27:39.090
  • YOU COULD PLUCK THEM FROM THE HEADLINES TODAY,
  • 00:27:39.110 --> 00:27:42.110
  • AND THEN THE THIRD ONE-- - DAVID.
  • 00:27:42.130 --> 00:27:44.200
  • - DAVID, DAVID THE MIGHTY KING,
  • 00:27:44.220 --> 00:27:47.020
  • AND WELL, HE WASN'T KING YET, HE WAS HIDING IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:27:47.040 --> 00:27:50.110
  • HERE'S THIS MIGHTY WARRIOR WHO HAD SLAIN LIONS
  • 00:27:50.130 --> 00:27:53.290
  • AND BEARS AND GOLIATH, BUT HE IS LIKE THIS
  • 00:27:54.010 --> 00:27:57.260
  • IN THOSE CAVES IN EIN GEDI, TERRIFIED.
  • 00:27:57.280 --> 00:28:00.170
  • IF YOU'VE EVER READ THE PSALMS,
  • 00:28:00.190 --> 00:28:01.280
  • HE WAS TERRIFIED FOR HIS LIFE,
  • 00:28:02.000 --> 00:28:05.070
  • AND HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE TERRIFIED TODAY?
  • 00:28:05.090 --> 00:28:07.230
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE DEPRESSED?
  • 00:28:07.250 --> 00:28:09.080
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ON DRUGS
  • 00:28:09.100 --> 00:28:10.140
  • TO CONTROL DEPRESSION AND FEAR?
  • 00:28:10.160 --> 00:28:13.060
  • - DAVID IS ONE OF THOSE CHARACTERS,
  • 00:28:13.080 --> 00:28:14.170
  • FIRST OFF, I'M SO GLAD YOU CHOSE RUTH,
  • 00:28:14.190 --> 00:28:16.170
  • BECAUSE I THINK YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
  • 00:28:16.190 --> 00:28:18.210
  • SHE'S THE WIDOWER THAT COMES BACK TO A FOREIGN LAND,
  • 00:28:18.230 --> 00:28:22.070
  • WHICH SHE TECHNICALLY-- - AND PLEDGES HERSELF
  • 00:28:22.090 --> 00:28:23.250
  • TO HER MOTHER IN LAW'S CARE.
  • 00:28:23.270 --> 00:28:25.270
  • SHE'S GONNA CARE FOR HER, AND THE BLESSING OF GOD ON HER
  • 00:28:25.290 --> 00:28:29.090
  • BECAUSE OF THAT-- - AND THEN, WITH DAVID,
  • 00:28:29.110 --> 00:28:30.200
  • ONE OF THE THINGS I LIKE ABOUT THE CHARACTER OF DAVID
  • 00:28:30.220 --> 00:28:32.290
  • IS WE GET A CHANCE TO SEE DAVID IN ALL OF HIS GLORY
  • 00:28:33.010 --> 00:28:36.130
  • AND IN ALL OF HIS, HE'S ONE OF THE FEW CHARACTERS
  • 00:28:36.150 --> 00:28:38.190
  • IN THE BIBLE THAT YOU KINDA SEE HIM AS A TERRIBLE FATHER,
  • 00:28:38.210 --> 00:28:41.060
  • YOU SEE HIM AS-- - YOU SEE A WHOLE ARC TO HIM.
  • 00:28:41.080 --> 00:28:42.140
  • IT'S NOT JUST A ONE-OFF STORY, YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:28:42.160 --> 00:28:44.100
  • - YEAH, HE'S NOT JUST THE GREAT MAN OF GOD OR APOSTLE,
  • 00:28:44.120 --> 00:28:47.030
  • WE GET TO SEE HIS WHOLE LIFE, RIGHT?
  • 00:28:47.050 --> 00:28:48.180
  • - YEAH. - YES, ALL THE WARTS
  • 00:28:48.200 --> 00:28:50.190
  • AND ALL OF THE WOUNDS AND ALL THE WISDOM.
  • 00:28:50.210 --> 00:28:53.230
  • THE GOOD AND THE BAD, LIKE ALL OF US.
  • 00:28:53.250 --> 00:28:55.180
  • - SO WHY DO YOU THINK, THIS IS A CURVEBALL QUESTION,
  • 00:28:55.200 --> 00:28:59.260
  • IT MAY NOT BE TO THE SCHOLAR HERE OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:28:59.280 --> 00:29:02.070
  • - I'M NOT THE SCHOLAR, I JUST HANG OUT WITH THEM.
  • 00:29:02.090 --> 00:29:05.030
  • - WHY DOES GOD CALL DAVID A MAN AFTER HIS OWN HEART?
  • 00:29:05.050 --> 00:29:08.080
  • - RIGHT AFTER HE SINNED HE CALLED HIM THAT.
  • 00:29:08.100 --> 00:29:10.180
  • WHEN NATHAN-- - SAY THAT AGAIN, WHAT?
  • 00:29:10.200 --> 00:29:12.080
  • - RIGHT AFTER, WELL, HE SINNED HIS WHOLE LIFE,
  • 00:29:12.100 --> 00:29:13.270
  • BUT HIS MAJOR SINS AS RECORDED IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:29:13.290 --> 00:29:16.110
  • WERE HIS ADULTERY WITH BATHSHEBA,
  • 00:29:16.130 --> 00:29:17.270
  • AND THEN THE KILLING OF URIAH THE HITTITE, HER HUSBAND.
  • 00:29:17.290 --> 00:29:20.030
  • AND HE TRIED TO, THE GOD WHO SEES, SAW THAT TOO.
  • 00:29:20.050 --> 00:29:23.270
  • AND RIGHT AFTERWARDS, AND BATHSHEBA'S PREGNANT,
  • 00:29:23.290 --> 00:29:27.220
  • AND THAT'S WHY HE KILLS THE FATHER.
  • 00:29:27.240 --> 00:29:31.140
  • WHAT A GODLY MAN URIAH THE HITTITE WAS.
  • 00:29:31.160 --> 00:29:34.080
  • I MEAN, THAT GUY IS THE HERO OF THAT STORY.
  • 00:29:34.100 --> 00:29:36.050
  • HE WOULD NOT DO, HE WAS GONNA BE THE KING'S MAN.
  • 00:29:36.070 --> 00:29:39.180
  • AND HE WAS, SHOWED GREAT, AND WAS MURDERED FOR IT.
  • 00:29:39.200 --> 00:29:44.080
  • IT'S AN UGLY UGLY EPISODE.
  • 00:29:44.100 --> 00:29:46.030
  • I MEAN, IF YOU THINK THAT THE REAL HOUSEWIVES
  • 00:29:46.050 --> 00:29:48.170
  • OF THE OLD TESTAMENT-- - HAVE, THEY HAVE NOTHING
  • 00:29:48.190 --> 00:29:50.010
  • ON THE BIBLE. (AUDIENCE LAUGHING)
  • 00:29:50.030 --> 00:29:51.230

  • ON THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF THE OLD TESTAMENT.

  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)

  • - IT ALL STARTS IN THE WORD.
  • 00:29:58.120 --> 00:29:59.280
  • - THE STORIES ARE SO FASCINATING.

  • - THEY ARE. - THEY ARE FASCINATING.
  • 00:30:01.200 --> 00:30:02.200
  • - THEY ARE. - AND THAT'S WHY I THINK
  • 00:30:02.220 --> 00:30:04.060
  • THIS SONG AND THIS VIDEO IS SO, TO ME,
  • 00:30:04.080 --> 00:30:07.120

  • AND WE FORGET THAT THE STORY STARTED WAY BEFORE JESUS

  • I WANT US, WE AS CHRISTIANS,

  • YOU CANNOT STUDY JUST THE NEW TESTAMENT WITHOUT,

  • YOU HAVE TO STUDY THE OLD TESTAMENT TOO.

  • THEY ARE, IT'S ONE STORY. - IT IS.
  • 00:30:31.280 --> 00:30:33.270

  • THAT EVER HAPPENED IN JESUS' LIFE
  • 00:30:42.100 --> 00:30:43.230
  • HAPPENED DURING ONE OF THE MAJOR FESTIVALS IN JEWISH LIFE.
  • 00:30:43.250 --> 00:30:47.200
  • JESUS WAS A RABBI.
  • 00:30:47.220 --> 00:30:48.220
  • HE WAS A GOOD JEW.

  • YEAH

  • HE WALKS AND TALKS, HE HOLDS AND HE BREATHES
  • 00:38:27.290 --> 00:38:32.130
  • JESUS REALLY LIVES, I SPOKE WITH HIM THIS MORNING
  • 00:38:32.150 --> 00:38:37.160

  • - YEAH! - AH, WOW.
  • 00:38:47.000 --> 00:38:48.290
  • - PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:38:49.010 --> 00:38:50.070
  • THAT WAS SO-- - AMEN, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:38:50.090 --> 00:38:53.080
  • - WOW. - HE LIVES, HE LIVES.
  • 00:38:53.100 --> 00:38:55.090
  • - OH MY GOSH, HONEY, THAT IS SO AWESOME.
  • 00:38:55.110 --> 00:38:57.000
  • SHE DIDN'T EVEN WARM UP. (LAUGHING)
  • 00:38:57.020 --> 00:38:59.150
  • - THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT.
  • 00:38:59.170 --> 00:39:00.270
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WHEREVER YOU ARE TODAY,
  • 00:39:00.290 --> 00:39:02.080
  • JUST LIKE NICOLE'S SONG JUST SAID, THAT GOD LIVES.
  • 00:39:02.100 --> 00:39:05.160
  • WE DON'T SERVE A SAVIOR THAT'S DEAD
  • 00:39:05.180 --> 00:39:08.220
  • AND YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE--
  • 00:39:08.240 --> 00:39:10.010
  • - NO, THAT TOMB IS EMPTY. - THAT TOMB IS EMPTY.
  • 00:39:10.030 --> 00:39:12.040
  • HE LIVES, CAN WE GIVE GOD PRAISE ONE MORE TIME?
  • 00:39:12.060 --> 00:39:14.270
  • - YES, AMEN. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:39:14.290 --> 00:39:17.020
  • - HALLELUJAH, BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:39:17.040 --> 00:39:18.150
  • (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:39:18.170 --> 00:39:20.010
  • NICOLE, YOU WROTE THAT SONG HOW MANY YEARS AGO?
  • 00:39:20.030 --> 00:39:22.270
  • - 20 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:39:22.290 --> 00:39:24.220
  • ACTUALLY, I RECORDED IT 20 YEARS AGO, YEAH.
  • 00:39:24.240 --> 00:39:26.240
  • - WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU TODAY?
  • 00:39:26.260 --> 00:39:29.240
  • - THAT HE STILL LIVES, HE'S STILL ALIVE.
  • 00:39:29.260 --> 00:39:31.290
  • HE STILL BUYS BACK OUR PAIN AND OUR SHAME.
  • 00:39:32.010 --> 00:39:34.040
  • HE STILL MAKES EXCHANGES WITH US,
  • 00:39:34.060 --> 00:39:36.120
  • WHETHER IT'S BROKEN HEARTS,
  • 00:39:36.140 --> 00:39:37.210
  • WHETHER IT IS FAILED RELATIONSHIPS,
  • 00:39:37.230 --> 00:39:40.030
  • WHETHER IT IS FAILED LIVES.
  • 00:39:40.050 --> 00:39:42.050
  • HE GIVES BEAUTY FOR ASHES.
  • 00:39:42.070 --> 00:39:43.240
  • HE STILL GIVES OIL OF JOY INSTEAD OF MOURNING.
  • 00:39:43.260 --> 00:39:46.250
  • HE GIVES A GARMENT, CLOTHING OF PRAISE,
  • 00:39:46.270 --> 00:39:48.290
  • INSTEAD OF SPIRITS OF HEAVINESS,
  • 00:39:49.010 --> 00:39:50.180
  • AND SO HE IS OUR REDEEMER, HE BUYS US BACK,
  • 00:39:50.200 --> 00:39:53.020
  • AND IT'S STILL AS POTENT TODAY AS IT WAS WHEN I WROTE IT,
  • 00:39:53.040 --> 00:39:56.250
  • BECAUSE THE SCRIPTURES NEVER EXPIRE.
  • 00:39:56.270 --> 00:39:58.270
  • THE POWER OF THE WORD NEVER GOES OUT, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:39:58.290 --> 00:40:01.180
  • - THAT SONG WON, AMEN. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:40:01.200 --> 00:40:03.140
  • THAT SONG WON SONG OF THE YEAR.
  • 00:40:03.160 --> 00:40:06.250
  • - IT DID. - FOR THE DOVE AWARD.
  • 00:40:06.270 --> 00:40:08.120
  • WHAT YEAR WAS THAT? - IN, I THINK IT WAS 2001.
  • 00:40:08.140 --> 00:40:10.210
  • - 2001, SONG OF THE YEAR, AND STILL GOING STRONG.
  • 00:40:10.230 --> 00:40:13.280
  • YOU GUYS, ALL RIGHT, SO LET'S GO BACK TO KATHIE HERE.
  • 00:40:14.000 --> 00:40:18.290
  • - POOR LITTLE MARY MAGDALENE.
  • 00:40:19.010 --> 00:40:20.050
  • (JAVEN LAUGHING) - ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:40:20.070 --> 00:40:22.030
  • - SHE HAD TO WAIT A LONG TIME.
  • 00:40:22.050 --> 00:40:23.230
  • - BUT WAIT, SHE DIDN'T TALK ABOUT DAVID
  • 00:40:23.250 --> 00:40:25.020
  • AND WHY HE WAS A MAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART.
  • 00:40:25.040 --> 00:40:27.060
  • - OH THAT'S RIGHT, SO YOU STILL GOTTA ANSWER THE QUESTION.
  • 00:40:27.080 --> 00:40:28.070
  • WHY DID GOD NAME DAVID A MAN--
  • 00:40:28.090 --> 00:40:30.230
  • - A MAN AFTER HIS OWN HEART. - AFTER HIS OWN HEART.
  • 00:40:30.250 --> 00:40:33.050
  • - BECAUSE, REMEMBER, WE TALKED ABOUT,
  • 00:40:33.070 --> 00:40:34.220
  • HE SAW HIM IN HIS MOTHER'S WOMB.
  • 00:40:34.240 --> 00:40:36.160
  • HE KNEW HIS HEART, HE KNEW THAT DAVID WAS GOING TO FAIL.
  • 00:40:36.180 --> 00:40:40.190
  • HE KNEW THAT HE WAS GONNA SIN.
  • 00:40:40.210 --> 00:40:42.170
  • HE KNEW IT ALL BEFORE IT HAPPENED,
  • 00:40:42.190 --> 00:40:44.090
  • AND SO HE WASN'T SURPRISED, BUT HE KNEW HIS HEART.
  • 00:40:44.110 --> 00:40:46.210
  • - [JAVEN] GOD WASN'T LOOKING AT HIS ACTIONS.
  • 00:40:46.230 --> 00:40:48.270
  • - GOD WASN'T, AND HE REPENTED.
  • 00:40:48.290 --> 00:40:50.130
  • THE MINUTE THAT NATHAN WENT TO HIM,
  • 00:40:50.150 --> 00:40:54.070
  • AND HE SAID, I HAVE SINNED AGAINST MY, YEAH.
  • 00:40:54.090 --> 00:40:56.110
  • THAT'S ALL IT TAKES IS THE REPENTANCE.
  • 00:40:56.130 --> 00:40:58.190
  • - COME ON. - YEAH.
  • 00:40:58.210 --> 00:40:59.270
  • - COME ON. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:40:59.290 --> 00:41:01.050
  • - AND WE ALL HAVE A HEART FOR GOD THEN.
  • 00:41:01.070 --> 00:41:02.120
  • - THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW SOMEBODY'S
  • 00:41:02.140 --> 00:41:04.120
  • JUST WALKING IN THEIR PURPOSE. SO LET'S KEEP GOING.
  • 00:41:04.140 --> 00:41:06.130
  • SO FROM DAVID, WE GO TO MARY MAGDALENE?
  • 00:41:06.150 --> 00:41:09.070
  • - WE GO TO THE PRESENCE, HOW EVERYTHING CHANGED,
  • 00:41:09.090 --> 00:41:11.260
  • AND EVEN IN OUR MOVIE, YOU SEE,
  • 00:41:11.280 --> 00:41:13.110
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN, THERE'S COLOR.
  • 00:41:13.130 --> 00:41:15.110
  • I WANTED TO GO IN MARCH ON PURPOSE,
  • 00:41:15.130 --> 00:41:18.010
  • BECAUSE MARCH IS SPRING THERE, AS EVERYWHERE,
  • 00:41:18.030 --> 00:41:20.240
  • BUT THERE IT'S A MAGNIFICENT MONTH.
  • 00:41:20.260 --> 00:41:23.100
  • THE MUSTARD SEED, REMEMBER, THE FAITH OF THE MUSTARD SEED?
  • 00:41:23.120 --> 00:41:26.130
  • THERE ARE ACRES AND ACRES OF JUST YELLOW MUSTARD SEED,
  • 00:41:26.150 --> 00:41:30.040
  • AND THE POPPIES, WHERE JESUS SAID,
  • 00:41:30.060 --> 00:41:31.200
  • "BEHOLD THE LILIES OF THE FIELD?"
  • 00:41:31.220 --> 00:41:33.010
  • THEY'RE RED POPPIES, BUT THAT'S,
  • 00:41:33.030 --> 00:41:35.210
  • AND SO, I MEAN, YOU'LL SEE, ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:41:35.230 --> 00:41:38.020
  • HER WALKING THROUGH THIS MAGNIFICENT FIELD
  • 00:41:38.040 --> 00:41:41.210
  • WITH POPPIES AND JUST, LIFE SHOWED UP WHEN THE MESSIAH DID.
  • 00:41:41.230 --> 00:41:45.250
  • - [JAVEN] COME ON.
  • 00:41:45.270 --> 00:41:46.290
  • - LIFE, AND WE WENT FROM THE DESERT
  • 00:41:47.010 --> 00:41:48.130
  • WHERE THERE'S NO WATER AND EVERYTHING'S HOT AND PARCHED.
  • 00:41:48.150 --> 00:41:50.010
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN, THERE'S WATERFALLS
  • 00:41:50.030 --> 00:41:52.240
  • AND THERE'S STREAMS IN THE DESERT,
  • 00:41:52.260 --> 00:41:54.090
  • AND IT'S JUST, IT'S ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES
  • 00:41:54.110 --> 00:41:58.090
  • IN THE WORLD, THE GALILEE, AND ESPECIALLY IN MARCH.
  • 00:41:58.110 --> 00:42:01.130
  • SO WE CAPTURED THAT.
  • 00:42:01.150 --> 00:42:03.030
  • AND THEN WHEN THE MESSIAH SHOWS UP, LIFE SHOWS UP,
  • 00:42:03.050 --> 00:42:05.100
  • AND WE TALK ABOUT MARY MAGDALENE
  • 00:42:05.120 --> 00:42:06.280
  • AND THAT HE HAD ONE ENCOUNTER WITH HER.
  • 00:42:07.000 --> 00:42:10.170
  • NOW, HERE'S THE OTHER PERSON THAT SHOWS UP.
  • 00:42:10.190 --> 00:42:12.180
  • RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES TODAY.
  • 00:42:12.200 --> 00:42:14.040
  • MARY MAGDALENE WAS MENTALLY ILL.
  • 00:42:14.060 --> 00:42:16.200
  • SHE WAS MENTALLY ILL, SHE SUFFERED, TORMENTED BY DEMONS.
  • 00:42:16.220 --> 00:42:21.020
  • SO AND WHAT WE LOVE SO MUCH, AND THIS IS MAYBE MY FAVORITE
  • 00:42:21.040 --> 00:42:25.070
  • STORY IN THE BIBLE IS THAT WHEN,
  • 00:42:25.090 --> 00:42:28.160
  • WHO DOES JESUS IN HIS RESURRECTED FORM APPEAR TO
  • 00:42:28.180 --> 00:42:33.170
  • FIRST? FIRST, A WOMAN, A MENTALLY ILL WOMAN,
  • 00:42:33.190 --> 00:42:38.170
  • SHE HAD BEEN MENTALLY ILL WHEN HE MET HER,
  • 00:42:38.190 --> 00:42:41.000
  • HE REDEEMED HER, AND SHE, I LOVE THAT HE DIDN'T,
  • 00:42:41.020 --> 00:42:45.040
  • IT WASN'T TO THE PHARISEES AND THE SADDUCEES.
  • 00:42:45.060 --> 00:42:47.240
  • IT WAS TO THE--
  • 00:42:47.260 --> 00:42:48.280
  • - IT WASN'T TO THE CHURCH PEOPLE.
  • 00:42:49.000 --> 00:42:50.040
  • - NO. IT WAS TO THOSE WHO WERE MOST GRATEFUL
  • 00:42:50.060 --> 00:42:54.010
  • 'CAUSE THEY'D BEEN SHOWN SO MUCH LOVE.
  • 00:42:54.030 --> 00:42:56.070
  • - THAT'S BEAUTIFUL. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:42:56.090 --> 00:42:58.060
  • YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT THE JEWISH COMMUNITY CALLED,
  • 00:42:58.080 --> 00:43:02.230
  • WHAT WE CONSIDER EASTER OR RESURRECTION SUNDAY,
  • 00:43:02.250 --> 00:43:06.030
  • IT'S CONSIDERED FOR THEM PASSOVER, CORRECT?
  • 00:43:06.050 --> 00:43:08.080
  • - PASSOVER IS, YES, AND THAT'S,
  • 00:43:08.100 --> 00:43:10.270
  • REMEMBER WHAT PASSOVER IS, THAT'S WHEN THE ISRAELITES,
  • 00:43:10.290 --> 00:43:14.040
  • WELL, THEY WEREN'T CALLED ISRAELITES THEN.
  • 00:43:14.060 --> 00:43:15.170
  • WHEN THE HEBREWS WERE FINALLY BEING LED
  • 00:43:15.190 --> 00:43:18.080
  • OUT OF EGYPT AND WHAT WAS THERE,
  • 00:43:18.100 --> 00:43:20.250
  • THE BLOOD WAS OVER THE DOORPOST, RIGHT?
  • 00:43:20.270 --> 00:43:23.160
  • AND WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT? WHO DIED? FIRSTBORNS.
  • 00:43:23.180 --> 00:43:26.280
  • THE FIRSTBORNS. THAT'S WHEN JESUS DIED.
  • 00:43:27.000 --> 00:43:29.120
  • GOD'S FIRSTBORN, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE EVER MADE
  • 00:43:29.140 --> 00:43:32.000
  • THE CONNECTION BETWEEN IT, AND THEN, SUNDAY IS FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:43:32.020 --> 00:43:37.100
  • WHO WAS THE FIRST FRUIT OF GOD'S CREATION?
  • 00:43:37.120 --> 00:43:40.030
  • WELL, HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. AND WE BRING
  • 00:43:40.050 --> 00:43:43.100
  • OUR FIRST FRUITS, IT'S LIKE IT'S ALSO A TECHNICAL THING,
  • 00:43:43.120 --> 00:43:47.150
  • IT'S A REAL THING, THEY BRING THEIR OFFERINGS
  • 00:43:47.170 --> 00:43:50.170
  • OF PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING WITH THE BEST
  • 00:43:50.190 --> 00:43:52.110
  • OF THEIR WINE-- - FOR WHAT WE CALL EASTER?
  • 00:43:52.130 --> 00:43:53.290
  • - THE BEST OF THEIR FOOD, THE BEST OF THEIR HARVEST
  • 00:43:54.010 --> 00:43:56.150
  • GOES TO GOD FIRST, SO.
  • 00:43:56.170 --> 00:43:58.110
  • - YEAH, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, WE ARE ABSOLUTELY OUT OF TIME,
  • 00:43:58.130 --> 00:44:00.280
  • BECAUSE WE WANNA SAVE THE REST OF THE TIME OF THE SHOW
  • 00:44:01.000 --> 00:44:03.180
  • FOR THE MOVIE. 'CAUSE EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE THE MOVIE,
  • 00:44:03.200 --> 00:44:06.070
  • RIGHT? AMEN. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
  • 00:44:06.090 --> 00:44:08.250
  • BEFORE WE DO THAT, I WANNA SAY FIRST OFF,
  • 00:44:08.270 --> 00:44:10.250
  • JUST LIKE KATHIE SAID, AND JUST LIKE NICOLE SHARED,
  • 00:44:10.270 --> 00:44:13.140
  • GIVE YOUR HEART TO THE LORD, GIVE JESUS A TRY.
  • 00:44:13.160 --> 00:44:16.190
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH,
  • 00:44:16.210 --> 00:44:17.150
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE FACING,
  • 00:44:17.170 --> 00:44:18.280
  • BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THE BLOOD OF JESUS STILL WORKS,
  • 00:44:19.000 --> 00:44:20.240
  • AND HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT.
  • 00:44:20.260 --> 00:44:23.080
  • WHEN YOU WATCH THIS MOVIE, THIS SHORT FILM
  • 00:44:23.100 --> 00:44:25.280
  • THAT WAS, IS KATHIE LEE'S DEBUT IN DIRECTING,
  • 00:44:26.000 --> 00:44:30.240
  • I PRAY THAT IT DOES FOR YOU WHAT IT DID FOR ME
  • 00:44:30.260 --> 00:44:34.040
  • WHEN I WATCHED IT THE OTHER DAY,
  • 00:44:34.060 --> 00:44:36.050
  • AND IT JUST REALLY REMINDS US OF HOW POWERFUL
  • 00:44:36.070 --> 00:44:40.080
  • AND HOW STRONG THE ANOINTING
  • 00:44:40.100 --> 00:44:42.210
  • OF GOD STILL IS IN TODAY'S SOCIETY.
  • 00:44:42.230 --> 00:44:45.190
  • I LOVE THAT YOU BROUGHT UP ADULTERY.
  • 00:44:45.210 --> 00:44:48.130
  • I LOVE THAT YOU BROUGHT UP MENTAL ILLNESS.
  • 00:44:48.150 --> 00:44:50.230
  • I LOVE THAT YOU BROUGHT UP BROKENNESS AND FAILED MARRIAGES
  • 00:44:50.250 --> 00:44:54.160
  • AND WIDOW, WHOEVER YOU ARE AND WHEREVER YOU ARE,

  • JUST KNOW THAT GOD'S GRACE IS, HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT.
  • 00:44:57.060 --> 00:45:00.080
  • - AMEN. - AT ANY GIVEN POINT,
  • 00:45:00.100 --> 00:45:01.160
  • YOU'RE WELCOME TO CALL THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:45:01.180 --> 00:45:03.230
  • SOMEBODY'S THERE TO PRAY WITH YOU
  • 00:45:03.250 --> 00:45:05.100
  • AND WALK YOU THROUGH IT, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE IN CHURCH,
  • 00:45:05.120 --> 00:45:08.060
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AROUND A BUNCH OF RELIGIOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:45:08.080 --> 00:45:11.060
  • TO FEEL GOD'S PRESENCE, YOU CAN FEEL HIM RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:45:11.080 --> 00:45:14.060

  • I PRAY THAT IT BLESSES AND CHANGES YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:45:16.260 --> 00:45:19.080

  • 00:46:33.200 --> 00:46:43.030
  • HAGAR WAS A SINGLE MOTHER.
  • 00:46:43.050 --> 00:46:47.180
  • SHE WAS ABANDONED BY THE FAMILY SHE BELONGED TO,
  • 00:46:47.200 --> 00:46:52.110
  • AND THERE IN THE WILDERNESS, WITH HER SON, ALONE,
  • 00:46:52.130 --> 00:46:56.030
  • WITH VERY LITTLE PROVISION, SHE WAS WONDERING.
  • 00:46:56.050 --> 00:47:03.020
  • SHE WAS QUESTIONING.
  • 00:47:03.040 --> 00:47:07.280
  • DOES ANYONE CARE?
  • 00:47:08.000 --> 00:47:12.160
  • SHE'S CRYING IN THE DESERT
  • 00:47:12.180 --> 00:47:19.200
  • SHE'S LOST AND HURT AS WELL
  • 00:47:19.220 --> 00:47:26.220
  • SHE THINKS NOBODY LOVES HER
  • 00:47:26.240 --> 00:47:32.210
  • HAGAR THINKS NOBODY'S THERE
  • 00:47:32.230 --> 00:47:40.150
  • BUT GOD SAYS I WILL BE A RING OF FIRE AROUND HER
  • 00:47:40.170 --> 00:47:50.170
  • AND I WILL BE THE GLORY IN HER MIDST
  • 00:47:50.190 --> 00:47:57.130
  • AND THE POWER OF MY PRESENCE
  • 00:47:57.150 --> 00:48:00.280
  • WILL BRING HER TO HER KNEES
  • 00:48:01.000 --> 00:48:04.230
  • AND I WILL LIFT HER UP AGAIN
  • 00:48:04.250 --> 00:48:08.040
  • FOR I'M THE GOD WHO SEES
  • 00:48:08.060 --> 00:48:13.280
  • I'M THE GOD WHO SEES
  • 00:48:14.000 --> 00:48:21.030
  • OH
  • 00:48:21.050 --> 00:48:27.190
  • THEN HE SPEAKS IN GENTLE WHISPERS
  • 00:48:27.210 --> 00:48:34.100
  • AND HE SOFTLY CALLS HER NAME
  • 00:48:34.120 --> 00:48:41.140
  • SHE FEELS HIS ARMS ENFOLD HER
  • 00:48:41.160 --> 00:48:45.220
  • AS HE HOLDS HER
  • 00:48:45.240 --> 00:48:48.220
  • AND SHE'LL NEVER BE THE SAME
  • 00:48:48.240 --> 00:48:53.230
  • 'CAUSE I'M THE GOD WHO NEVER CHANGES
  • 00:48:53.250 --> 00:48:57.100
  • AND MY PROMISES ARE TRUE
  • 00:48:57.120 --> 00:49:01.000
  • AND WHEN THIS WORLD DESERTS YOU
  • 00:49:01.020 --> 00:49:04.090
  • THIS IS WHAT I'LL DO
  • 00:49:04.110 --> 00:49:15.040
  • AND THEN THERE WAS ANOTHER WOMAN NAMED RUTH.
  • 00:49:15.060 --> 00:49:17.210
  • SHE WAS FROM THE LAND OF MOAB.
  • 00:49:17.230 --> 00:49:22.200
  • AND SHE WAS MET WITH GRIEF AND HEARTACHE.
  • 00:49:22.220 --> 00:49:28.140
  • SHE WAS A WIDOW, AND SHE LIVED WITH HER MOTHER IN LAW,
  • 00:49:28.160 --> 00:49:32.140
  • WHO WAS ALSO A WIDOW, AND NOW IT WAS TIME TO MOVE ON.
  • 00:49:32.160 --> 00:49:39.130
  • BUT RUTH HAD NEVER BEEN TO BETHLEHEM.
  • 00:49:39.150 --> 00:49:42.150
  • SHE HAD NEVER TASTED OF THE HOUSE OF BREAD.
  • 00:49:42.170 --> 00:49:47.210
  • BUT NOW, AND SHE HAD HEARD AN INNER INVITATION
  • 00:49:47.230 --> 00:49:50.130
  • TO COME AND TASTE AND SEE,
  • 00:49:50.150 --> 00:49:52.280
  • AND SO SHE VOWED HERSELF TO HER MOTHER IN LAW,
  • 00:49:53.000 --> 00:49:55.220
  • AND SAID, "WHERE YOU GO, I WILL GO,
  • 00:49:55.240 --> 00:49:57.090
  • "WHERE YOU LIE, I WILL LIE, WHERE YOU DIE, I WILL DIE."
  • 00:49:57.110 --> 00:50:01.010
  • AND SHE BEGINS A JOURNEY TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:50:01.030 --> 00:50:07.170
  • SHE'S TRAVELING THROUGH THE DESERT
  • 00:50:07.190 --> 00:50:14.130
  • AND SHE'S LEAVING HER DESPAIR
  • 00:50:14.150 --> 00:50:21.010
  • SHE'S HOPING FOR A FUTURE
  • 00:50:21.030 --> 00:50:27.210
  • PRAYING GOD WILL LEAD HER THERE
  • 00:50:27.230 --> 00:50:35.210
  • AND HE SAYS, I WILL PUT A RING AROUND YOUR FINGER
  • 00:50:35.230 --> 00:50:45.080
  • AND I WILL BLESS A CHILD WITHIN YOUR WOMB
  • 00:50:45.100 --> 00:50:52.080
  • AND THE SAVIOR WILL BE BORN THROUGH YOU
  • 00:50:52.100 --> 00:50:55.090
  • TO FREE THE WORLD FROM SIN
  • 00:50:55.110 --> 00:50:58.260
  • AND HE'LL MAKE ALL THINGS NEW FOR YOU
  • 00:50:58.280 --> 00:51:02.140
  • AND LOVE YOU BACK TO LIFE AGAIN
  • 00:51:02.160 --> 00:51:07.160
  • AGAIN
  • 00:51:07.180 --> 00:51:11.040
  • AND THEN, FROM RUTH, WHO GAVE BIRTH TO A SON,
  • 00:51:11.060 --> 00:51:16.160
  • OBED, WHO GAVE BIRTH TO A SON, JESSE,
  • 00:51:16.180 --> 00:51:21.000
  • WHO GAVE BIRTH TO A SON NAMED DAVID.
  • 00:51:21.020 --> 00:51:24.280
  • NOW, THIS SAME ONCE SHEPHERD BOY, MIGHTY WARRIOR,
  • 00:51:25.000 --> 00:51:28.240
  • ANOINTED KING, IS ALONE, TERRIFIED IN THE DARKNESS.
  • 00:51:28.260 --> 00:51:37.080
  • HE'S HIDING IN THE DESERT
  • 00:51:37.100 --> 00:51:44.080
  • HE'S BATTLING DESPAIR
  • 00:51:44.100 --> 00:51:50.260
  • DAVID THINKS HIS LIFE IS OVER
  • 00:51:50.280 --> 00:51:55.100
  • IT'S OVER
  • 00:51:55.120 --> 00:51:57.230
  • AND GOD, HE DOESN'T CARE
  • 00:51:57.250 --> 00:52:05.110
  • BUT GOD SAYS, I WILL BE THE ROCK OF YOUR SALVATION
  • 00:52:05.130 --> 00:52:15.000
  • I'LL HOLD YOU UP BY THE STRENGTH OF MY RIGHT HAND
  • 00:52:15.020 --> 00:52:21.150
  • AND THE POWER OF MY SPIRIT
  • 00:52:21.170 --> 00:52:24.270
  • WILL FREE YOU FROM ALL FEAR
  • 00:52:24.290 --> 00:52:28.180
  • IN THE HOUR OF YOUR DEEPEST NEED
  • 00:52:28.200 --> 00:52:32.070
  • YOU'LL FIND THAT I AM NEAR
  • 00:52:32.090 --> 00:52:36.230
  • I AM HERE
  • 00:52:36.250 --> 00:52:40.210
  • AND I WILL BE
  • 00:52:40.230 --> 00:52:43.280
  • A RING OF FIRE AROUND YOU
  • 00:52:44.000 --> 00:52:47.270
  • AND I WILL BE
  • 00:52:47.290 --> 00:52:51.010
  • THE GLORY IN YOUR MIDST
  • 00:52:51.030 --> 00:52:54.170
  • AND THE POWER OF MY PRESENCE
  • 00:52:54.190 --> 00:52:58.050
  • WILL BRING YOU TO YOUR KNEES
  • 00:52:58.070 --> 00:53:01.240
  • AND I WILL LIFT YOU UP AGAIN
  • 00:53:01.260 --> 00:53:05.120
  • FOR I'M THE GOD WHO SEES
  • 00:53:05.140 --> 00:53:15.030
  • AND THEN, FROM THE LINE OF DAVID,
  • 00:53:15.050 --> 00:53:18.160
  • FINALLY, JESUS THE MESSIAH, THE ANOINTED ONE,
  • 00:53:18.180 --> 00:53:25.020
  • YESHUA THE CHRIST, BORN IN THE SAME HOUSE OF BREAD
  • 00:53:25.040 --> 00:53:29.150
  • TO BE THE BREAD OF LIFE, IN THE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM.
  • 00:53:29.170 --> 00:53:34.250
  • AND HE WOULD GROW AND HE WOULD BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:53:34.270 --> 00:53:39.200
  • AND HE WOULD BE CALLED EMMANUEL, GOD WITH US.
  • 00:53:39.220 --> 00:53:43.010
  • AND HE WOULD HEAL AND HE WOULD REVEAL,
  • 00:53:43.030 --> 00:53:46.130
  • AND THEN HE HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH A WOMAN
  • 00:53:46.150 --> 00:53:48.150
  • NAMED MARY OF MAGDALA WHO WAS PLAGUED BY DEMONS,
  • 00:53:48.170 --> 00:53:53.190
  • TORMENTED BY EVIL SPIRITS.
  • 00:53:53.210 --> 00:53:58.220
  • AND JESUS SET HER FREE.
  • 00:53:58.240 --> 00:54:02.100
  • AND MARY FOLLOWED HIM, SHE LISTENED AT HIS FEET.
  • 00:54:02.120 --> 00:54:08.150
  • SHE SERVED HIM, AND SHE LOVED HIM.
  • 00:54:08.170 --> 00:54:12.200
  • OH, HOW SHE LOVED HIM.
  • 00:54:12.220 --> 00:54:16.100
  • BUT THEN, SHE WATCHED AS THEY NAILED HIM TO THE CROSS,
  • 00:54:16.120 --> 00:54:22.240
  • AND AS THEY PLACED HIS BODY IN THE TOMB.
  • 00:54:22.260 --> 00:54:27.170
  • IN THAT MOMENT, HER HOPE DIED.
  • 00:54:27.190 --> 00:54:35.120
  • IT DIED.
  • 00:54:35.140 --> 00:54:37.040
  • SHE'S CRYING IN THE GARDEN
  • 00:54:37.060 --> 00:54:45.110
  • SHE'S BROKEN IN DESPAIR
  • 00:54:45.130 --> 00:54:52.150
  • SHE'S SEARCHING FOR HER SAVIOR
  • 00:54:52.170 --> 00:54:59.160
  • BUT HIS BODY ISN'T THERE
  • 00:54:59.180 --> 00:55:08.020
  • THEN HE SAYS, MARY
  • 00:55:08.040 --> 00:55:12.190
  • GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, HALLELUJAH
  • 00:55:12.210 --> 00:55:19.110
  • I WILL BE THE GLORY IN YOUR MIDST
  • 00:55:19.130 --> 00:55:25.230
  • AND EVERY KNEE WILL BOW TO ME
  • 00:55:25.250 --> 00:55:28.250
  • AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS
  • 00:55:28.270 --> 00:55:32.120
  • YES, ALL THE WORLD WILL WORSHIP ME
  • 00:55:32.140 --> 00:55:35.230
  • IN ALL MY HOLINESS
  • 00:55:35.250 --> 00:55:41.190
  • I WILL BE A RING OF FIRE AROUND YOU
  • 00:55:41.210 --> 00:55:47.260
  • AND I WILL BE THE GLORY IN YOUR MIDST
  • 00:55:47.280 --> 00:55:54.140
  • AND THE POWER OF MY PRESENCE
  • 00:55:54.160 --> 00:55:57.270
  • WILL BRING YOU TO YOUR KNEES
  • 00:55:57.290 --> 00:56:01.120
  • AND I WILL LIFT YOU UP AGAIN
