  • OF THE THINGS I WANT TO GET YOUR TAKE ON, PASTOR

  • WE HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON BETWEEN OUR COUNTRIES.
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:59.120
  • WE CELEBRATE FATHER'S DAY, AND SO IN A LOT OF
  • 00:07:59.140 --> 00:08:03.140
  • WAYS YOU ARE A FATHER OF THE FAITH IN THIS
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:07.010
  • COUNTRY, AND HOW IMPORTANT IS THAT IN THE
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:10.040
  • LIVES OF BELIEVERS?
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:12.010
  • - RAY MCCAULEY: WELL, I THINK IT'S ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:15.110
  • NECESSARY THAT, YOU KNOW, ONE DAY A GUY CAME TO ME,
  • 00:08:15.130 --> 00:08:19.040
  • HE SAID, I DON'T SEE -I DON'T SEE THE FATHERS ANYWHERE.
  • 00:08:19.060 --> 00:08:24.170
  • WHERE ARE THE FATHERS?
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:26.220
  • AND MY ANSWER TO HIM WAS WELL, WHERE ARE THE SONS?
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:29.280
  • YOU KNOW, MANY TIMES THE SONS HIDEAWAY, GO AND DO
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:32.150
  • THEIR THING.
  • 00:08:32.170 --> 00:08:33.290
  • AND THEN THEY WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE FATHERS ARE.
  • 00:08:34.010 --> 00:08:36.000
  • WELL, I THINK THAT'S WHEN WE STARTED TO REALLY WORK
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:43.110
  • IN GATHERING UP THE SONS AND PUTTING INPUT INTO
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:45.130
  • THE MEN, HELPING THEM PLANT THE CHURCHES,
  • 00:08:45.150 --> 00:08:47.070
  • HELPING THEM GET ESTABLISHED, DISCIPLED.
  • 00:08:47.090 --> 00:08:50.030
  • THE WISDOM THAT YOU GET OUT OF 30 YEARS AS YOU
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:54.090
  • KNOW, YOU AND I GO WAY BACK, YOU CAN'T GET THAT
  • 00:08:54.110 --> 00:08:58.050
  • IN A YEAR.
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:08:59.140
  • IT'S A PROCESS.
  • 00:08:59.160 --> 00:09:01.160
  • IT'S A THING THAT YOU LEARN AS YOU GO ALONG.
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:04.040
  • SO THOSE THINGS ARE VITAL TO THE SONS.
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:08.120
  • AND THE DAUGHTERS, THAT THEY'RE UNDER SOME
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:11.230
  • AUTHORITY IN A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN GROW,
  • 00:09:11.250 --> 00:09:15.030
  • LEARN AND BE ACCOUNTABLE.
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:17.130
  • - WELL, I THINK YOU'VE BROUGHT A WHOLE IN YOUR
  • 00:09:17.150 --> 00:09:19.180
  • VERY FIRST STATEMENT, YOU'VE BROUGHT A WHOLE
  • 00:09:19.200 --> 00:09:24.040
  • NEW WAY TO LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:26.010
  • OFTEN TIMES IT'S NOT, WHERE ARE THE FATHERS?
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:28.100
  • IT'S WHERE ARE THE SONS THAT ARE HIDING AWAY AND
  • 00:09:28.120 --> 00:09:31.010
  • NOT WANTING TO HAVE ANY KIND OF A, KIND OF
  • 00:09:31.030 --> 00:09:36.260
  • AUTHORITY FIGURE.
  • 00:09:36.280 --> 00:09:40.000
  • I NEED TO DO IT MY WAY AND THAT KIND OF THING.
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:42.020
  • THAT'S A WHOLE NEW WAY TO LOOK AT IT.
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.200
  • DID THAT COME OUT OF EXPERIENCE SOMEHOW?
  • 00:09:43.220 --> 00:09:46.060
  • - YES.
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:47.170
  • - TELL ME-- - YOU WERE TALKING JUST NOW
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:52.230
  • FOR A FEW MINUTES, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT PUTTING IN
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:55.100
  • A SCHOOL OF WHERE YOU LEARN TELEVISION.
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:59.050
  • HOW DO YOU DO A PROGRAM?
  • 00:09:59.070 --> 00:10:00.160
  • HOW DO YOU DO ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS?
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:02.210
  • THOSE ARE THE TYPE OF THINGS THAT ARE VERY
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:04.080
  • NECESSARY FOR SONS AND DAUGHTERS TO ATTEND.
  • 00:10:04.100 --> 00:10:07.140
  • THEY NEED TO COME AND SIT UNDER THAT TYPE OF
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:11.030
  • LECTURES, TEACHING, EXPERIENCE, BE ABLE TO GO
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:16.130
  • WITH YOU TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD AND
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:19.130
  • STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:19.150 --> 00:10:20.210
  • BUT IF THEY HIDEAWAY AND THEY DON'T TO SUBMIT TO
  • 00:10:20.230 --> 00:10:23.030
  • NO AUTHORITY AND THEY DON'T BELONG ANYWHERE,
  • 00:10:23.050 --> 00:10:26.150
  • THEY GET LOST IN THE CROWD.
  • 00:10:26.170 --> 00:10:28.040
  • AND I FOUND OUT NINE OUT OF TEN OF THEM
  • 00:10:28.060 --> 00:10:31.020
  • DON'T SUCCEED.
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:32.190
  • BUT THE ONES THAT ARE AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE
  • 00:10:32.210 --> 00:10:35.120
  • RIGHT TIME GROWING, LEARNING, SUBMITTING--
  • 00:10:35.140 --> 00:10:37.270
  • NOT THIS RIDICULOUS SUBMISSION, WHAT TIE DO
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:39.290
  • YOU WEAR?

  • WHO CAN YOU DATE?
  • 00:10:41.180 --> 00:10:42.220
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY, BUT IT'S THE
  • 00:10:42.240 --> 00:10:44.190
  • SUBMISSION WHERE YOU REALLY RESPECT THE PERSON
  • 00:10:44.210 --> 00:10:48.040
  • THAT'S GONE BEFORE YOU.
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:49.130
  • - WOW.

  • - WOW.
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:53.150
  • THAT'S A WHOLE PARADIGM TO THIS SUBJECT OF
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:55.020
  • FATHERING THAT, YOU KNOW, MAYBE IT'S A LACK OF
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:58.220
  • WANTING A FATHER.
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:00.030
  • NOW, YOU KNOW, THERE'S CERTAINLY ANOTHER WHOLE
  • 00:11:00.050 --> 00:11:03.000
  • CATEGORY OF PEOPLE WHO NEVER HAD A FATHER AND
  • 00:11:03.020 --> 00:11:05.020
  • THEY'RE DEALING WITH IDENTITY TYPE ISSUES AND
  • 00:11:05.040 --> 00:11:08.020
  • ALL OF THAT KIND OF THING.
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:09.120
  • HOW DO YOU START CORRECTING THAT?
  • 00:11:09.140 --> 00:11:12.020
  • - WELL, I THINK YOU'LL FIND THOSE DO COME OUT.
  • 00:11:12.040 --> 00:11:14.240

  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:51.010
  • THAT KIND OF LEADS TO ALL THE PROBLEMS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:22:51.030 --> 00:22:53.180
  • TO THE POVERTY.
  • 00:22:53.200 --> 00:22:55.260
  • HOW DO YOU STARRED IN YOUR CHURCH HELPING PEOPLE?
  • 00:22:55.280 --> 00:23:01.150
  • - I HOPE IT DOESN'T SOUND TOO OBVIOUS, BUT
  • 00:23:01.170 --> 00:23:03.160
  • IT'S GET PEOPLE TO FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:06.060
  • AND IF WE FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS, THEN THE REST
  • 00:23:06.080 --> 00:23:09.220
  • OF HIS KINGDOM MAKES SENSE BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:23:09.240 --> 00:23:12.070
  • WHEN HE -WHEN THEY CHALLENGED HIM ON ALL THE
  • 00:23:12.090 --> 00:23:14.170
  • REST OF THE LAW, HE BROKE IT DOWN TO LOVE GOD WITH
  • 00:23:14.190 --> 00:23:17.150
  • ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, WITH ALL YOUR
  • 00:23:17.170 --> 00:23:19.100
  • STRENGTH, AND ALL YOUR MIND.
  • 00:23:19.120 --> 00:23:21.000
  • AND LOVE OTHERS THE WAY I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:23:21.020 --> 00:23:23.090
  • IT'S ABSOLUTE COMPASSION AND BEING PREPARED TO
  • 00:23:23.110 --> 00:23:27.160
  • WALK THAT KIND OF ROAD EVEN TO YOUR OWN HURT.
  • 00:23:27.180 --> 00:23:31.220
  • WE HAVE FAMILY CONFERENCES WHERE WE
  • 00:23:31.240 --> 00:23:34.100
  • CHALLENGE FATHERS TO STAND UP AND BE FATHERS,
  • 00:23:34.120 --> 00:23:38.080
  • BE THE MAN IN THE HOME.
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:41.050
  • WE'VE HAD SO MANY TESTIMONIES OF FAMILIES
  • 00:23:41.070 --> 00:23:44.110
  • THAT HAVE COME IN THAT AREN'T EVEN MARRIED,
  • 00:23:44.130 --> 00:23:47.150
  • JUST TRADITIONALLY.
  • 00:23:47.170 --> 00:23:50.020
  • THEY'VE GOT ALL THESE CHILDREN.
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:54.050
  • BUT THEN WHEN THEY DISCOVER THE LIFE OF GOD,
  • 00:23:54.070 --> 00:23:56.220
  • THEN THEY GET MARRIED.
  • 00:23:56.240 --> 00:23:58.130
  • THE FATHERS TAKE ON THE ROLE.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:24:00.150
  • THEY START RAISING THE KIDS, MAKING SURE THE
  • 00:24:00.170 --> 00:24:02.240
  • KIDS ARE WALKING WITH THEM.
  • 00:24:02.260 --> 00:24:05.000
  • - WHAT WE DO IS MOVE THEM INTO COMMUNITY
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:07.220
  • PROJECTS, SKILLS, WE'RE TEACHING LADIES HOW TO
  • 00:24:07.240 --> 00:24:10.050
  • SEW, HOW TO DO NAILS, HOW TO DO MAKE UP,
  • 00:24:10.070 --> 00:24:12.150
  • HOW TO DO HAIR.
  • 00:24:12.170 --> 00:24:14.120
  • SO THEY CAN THEN GO OUT AND HAVE THEIR OWN KITS
  • 00:24:14.140 --> 00:24:18.140
  • AND DO THAT WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITIES AND MAKE MONEY.
  • 00:24:18.160 --> 00:24:21.210
  • AND GROW THEIR FAMILIES.
  • 00:24:21.230 --> 00:24:24.120
  • SO IT'S AN EDUCATION FROM THE WORD INTO SKILLED
  • 00:24:24.140 --> 00:24:27.090
  • INTO PROJECTS INTO THEIR COMMUNITIES.

  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:49.220
  • BETWEEN FATHERS AND SONS.
  • 00:24:49.240 --> 00:24:51.250

  • YOU GOT A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:24:55.020 --> 00:24:56.160
  • YOUR TWO BOYS.
  • 00:24:56.180 --> 00:24:58.130
  • THAT NOW MUST BE VERY HARD FOR THEM SOMETIMES
  • 00:24:58.150 --> 00:25:00.210
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO SHARE THEIR DAD WITH THE
  • 00:25:00.230 --> 00:25:02.160
  • WORLD, BUT I CAN SEE THEY LOVE YOU AND THEY
  • 00:25:02.180 --> 00:25:03.250
  • RESPECT YOU.
  • 00:25:03.270 --> 00:25:05.150
  • AND THAT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST BREAKDOWNS IN
  • 00:25:05.170 --> 00:25:07.030
  • SOCIETY TODAY.
  • 00:25:07.050 --> 00:25:08.190
  • RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN FATHERS AND SONS.
  • 00:25:08.210 --> 00:25:10.250
  • I REMEMBER THE SECOND MIGHTY MEN CONFERENCE WE
  • 00:25:10.270 --> 00:25:14.220
  • HAD, AND YOU KNOW, ONE THING I'VE GOT, I'VE GOT
  • 00:25:14.240 --> 00:25:17.180
  • A THICK SKIN [ LAUGHTER ] AND I'VE GOT A BIG MOUTH.
  • 00:25:17.200 --> 00:25:20.020
  • THAT'S ABOUT ALL GOD GAVE ME SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:25:20.040 --> 00:25:22.000
  • AND IT WAS TEND OF THE MEETING, THERE WAS 600
  • 00:25:22.020 --> 00:25:24.000
  • MEN IN THAT TABERNACLE WHICH IS OUR CHURCH NOW,
  • 00:25:24.020 --> 00:25:26.040
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID TO ME, DON'T LET THE WORD
  • 00:25:26.060 --> 00:25:28.170
  • GO OUT YET.
  • 00:25:28.190 --> 00:25:31.020
  • THERE'S A FATHER AND SON THAT ARE NOT TALKING TO

  • EACH OTHER.
  • 00:25:32.110 --> 00:25:35.030
  • SO I SAID GENTLEMEN, THERE'S A FATHER AND A
  • 00:25:35.050 --> 00:25:38.110
  • SON IN THIS HALL, NOW THIS IS IN FRONT OF 600
  • 00:25:38.130 --> 00:25:40.080
  • MEN, REAL MEN.
  • 00:25:40.100 --> 00:25:42.000
  • I SAID BEFORE YOU LEAVE THIS HALL, I SAID THE
  • 00:25:42.020 --> 00:25:43.130
  • HOLY SPIRIT SAYS YOU NEED TO MAKE UP.
  • 00:25:43.150 --> 00:25:44.290
  • AND I KEPT QUIET AND NOTHING HAPPENED.
  • 00:25:45.010 --> 00:25:46.210
  • AND I'M SAYING NOW LORD, WHAT DO I DO NOW?
  • 00:25:46.230 --> 00:25:48.070
  • HE SAID, TELL THEM AGAIN.
  • 00:25:48.090 --> 00:25:49.170
  • I TOLD THEM THREE TIMES.
  • 00:25:49.190 --> 00:25:51.050
  • ON THE THIRD TIME I SAW THE FATHER STAND UP ON
  • 00:25:51.070 --> 00:25:52.190
  • THE SIDE OF THE AISLE.
  • 00:25:52.210 --> 00:25:53.290
  • A HUGE MAN, A FATHER.
  • 00:25:54.010 --> 00:25:55.130
  • AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AISLE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:25:55.150 --> 00:25:56.270
  • WAS HIS SON.
  • 00:25:56.290 --> 00:25:58.230
  • AND HE STOOD UP.
  • 00:25:58.250 --> 00:26:00.130
  • THEY STOOD UP TOGETHER.
  • 00:26:00.150 --> 00:26:02.080
  • THEY BROKE DOWN CRYING, AND THEY STARTED WALKING
  • 00:26:02.100 --> 00:26:03.250
  • TOWARDS EACH OTHER.
  • 00:26:03.270 --> 00:26:05.000
  • THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE BEGINNING.

  • SELF-CENTERED, YOU KNOW.

  • AND THE GUYS WERE WEEPING ON EACH OTHER.
  • 00:26:23.060 --> 00:26:25.120
  • SOME MEN THAT HAVE BEEN DIVORCED AND REMARRIED
  • 00:26:25.140 --> 00:26:27.260
  • AND DIVORCED, AND THEIR BOYS WERE COMING UP AND

  • SAYING DAD, WE FORGIVE YOU AND WE'RE GOING TO

  • BEATING FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HE'S WEEPING,
  • 00:26:55.120 --> 00:26:58.030
  • HE CAN'T LET HIMSELF GO IF HIS WIFE IS WATCHING HIM.
  • 00:26:58.050 --> 00:27:00.110
  • I'VE SEEN A 12 YEAR OLD BOY STANDING STARRY EYED

  • FATHERLESS BACKGROUND. THEY'VE GOT NO ROLE MODEL.
  • 00:34:24.220 --> 00:34:28.170
  • THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BE.
  • 00:34:28.190 --> 00:34:29.260

  • MASSIVE MEN'S CONFERENCE OVER THE WEEKEND.
  • 00:34:56.130 --> 00:34:59.080
  • THE MIGHTY MENS CONFERENCE, A RELIGIOUS CONFERENCE
  • 00:34:59.100 --> 00:35:02.170
  • WHICH WAS FOUNDED FIVE YEARS AGO BY ANGUS BUCHAN,
  • 00:35:02.190 --> 00:35:05.170
  • A MAN WHOSE STORY IS DEPICTED IN THE MOVIE
  • 00:35:05.190 --> 00:35:07.190
  • FAITH LIKE POTATOES.
  • 00:35:07.210 --> 00:35:10.040
  • - LET'S START WITH THE SUBJECT OF FATHERING.
  • 00:36:20.230 --> 00:36:25.010
  • YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPIKY BEAUTIFUL GRAY HAIR TO
  • 00:36:25.030 --> 00:36:28.200
  • QUALIFY, AND YOUR LEADERSHIP IN THIS CITY,
  • 00:36:28.220 --> 00:36:33.260
  • THIS NATION, THIS CONTINENT.
  • 00:36:33.280 --> 00:36:36.110
  • ARE YOU FINDING THAT YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT
  • 00:36:36.130 --> 00:36:40.250
  • HERE IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD, SOUTH AFRICA
  • 00:36:40.270 --> 00:36:46.020
  • TAKING ITS LEADERSHIP STATUS AND YOU
  • 00:36:46.040 --> 00:36:49.050
  • INDIVIDUALLY, ARE YOU TAKING YOUR LEADERSHIP
  • 00:36:49.070 --> 00:36:50.290
  • STATUS IN THAT AND HOW DOES THAT WORK?
  • 00:36:51.010 --> 00:36:53.160
  • - I THINK WE UNDERSTAND IN SOUTH AFRICA THAT
  • 00:36:53.180 --> 00:36:55.180
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF FATHERLESS CHILDREN.
  • 00:36:55.200 --> 00:36:58.060
  • IT'S A FATHERLESS GENERATION, ESPECIALLY
  • 00:36:58.080 --> 00:37:00.020
  • BECAUSE OF THE BACKGROUND OF OUR COUNTRY, SO WE'RE
  • 00:37:00.040 --> 00:37:02.160
  • ATTEMPTING TO RAISE UP AND DEVELOP YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:37:02.180 --> 00:37:04.250
  • ESPECIALLY FROM TEENS RIGHT INTO THE 20'S AND
  • 00:37:04.270 --> 00:37:07.190
  • THE 30'S MAKING SURE EVERY TIER, EVERY AGE
  • 00:37:07.210 --> 00:37:10.070
  • GROUP IS KIND OF RELEASED AND GUIDED AND FATHERED.
  • 00:37:10.090 --> 00:37:13.250
  • IT'S A BIG NEED IN SOUTH AFRICA TO HAVE FATHER
  • 00:37:13.270 --> 00:37:16.180
  • FIGURES, NOT JUST NATURAL FATHER FIGURES, AND ALSO
  • 00:37:16.200 --> 00:37:19.110
  • SPIRITUAL FATHER FIGURES.
  • 00:37:19.130 --> 00:37:21.000
  • I THINK A LOT OF CHURCHES IN THE COUNTRY
  • 00:37:21.020 --> 00:37:22.180
  • ARE DOING A GREAT JOB.
  • 00:37:22.200 --> 00:37:24.050
  • - WHEN YOU'RE PREACHING IT, WHAT IS YOUR MAIN--
  • 00:37:24.070 --> 00:37:27.200
  • IF YOU'RE HELPING US UNDERSTAND HOW TO TAKE
  • 00:37:27.220 --> 00:37:31.100
  • THAT POSITION, HOW DO YOU PREACH THAT TO ME?
  • 00:37:31.120 --> 00:37:34.110
  • - SURE, THAT'S A DIFFICULT QUESTION.
  • 00:37:34.130 --> 00:37:38.000
  • I THINK JUST IN PART OF OUR MINISTRY AND WHAT
  • 00:37:38.020 --> 00:37:39.200
  • WE'RE DOING AS A CHURCH WE'VE GOT A DEVELOPMENTAL
  • 00:37:39.220 --> 00:37:42.100
  • PROGRAM ESPECIALLY FOR DEVELOPING YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:37:42.120 --> 00:37:44.220
  • AND THE CHURCH CULTURE THAT WE CREATE IS ONE OF
  • 00:37:44.240 --> 00:37:48.160
  • FAMILY, SO MAKING PEOPLE FEEL INCLUDED, PROGRAMS
  • 00:37:48.180 --> 00:37:52.180
  • TO DEVELOP THEM, BIBLE COLLEGE COURSES, AND
  • 00:37:52.200 --> 00:37:55.160
  • REALLY TRYING TO EQUIP PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHO
  • 00:37:55.180 --> 00:37:58.080
  • THEY ARE. IDENTITY IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:37:58.100 --> 00:38:00.120
  • IF YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, BECAUSE AT THE ROOT OF
  • 00:38:00.140 --> 00:38:02.100
  • OUR SOCIETY TODAY IDENTITY ISSUES
  • 00:38:02.120 --> 00:38:03.270
  • ARE A BIG THING.
  • 00:38:03.290 --> 00:38:05.170
  • SO GETTING TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST, GOD AS
  • 00:38:05.190 --> 00:38:07.170
  • YOUR FATHER, THE CHURCH AS YOUR HOME AND FAMILY,
  • 00:38:07.190 --> 00:38:11.140
  • AND THEN DEVELOPING YOUR GIFTS AND TALENTS AND
  • 00:38:11.160 --> 00:38:13.060
  • RELEASING YOU AND ENCOURAGING LIKE
  • 00:38:13.080 --> 00:38:14.240
  • FATHERS SHOULD DO.
  • 00:38:14.260 --> 00:38:16.000
  • - IS THAT THE FOUNDATION?
  • 00:38:16.020 --> 00:38:17.180
  • UNDERSTANDING GOD AS YOUR FATHER?
  • 00:38:17.200 --> 00:38:20.180
  • - I THINK SO.
  • 00:38:20.200 --> 00:38:22.070
  • - HOW DOES SOMEBODY START THAT IF THEY DON'T
  • 00:38:22.090 --> 00:38:23.230
  • KNOW HOW TO DO THAT?
  • 00:38:23.250 --> 00:38:26.180
  • WHAT'S THE BEGINNING STAGES OF YOU REALIZING
  • 00:38:26.200 --> 00:38:30.010
  • YOUR TRUE IDENTITY, YOUR REAL IDENTITY?
  • 00:38:30.030 --> 00:38:32.160
  • - I THINK COMING TO CHRIST.
  • 00:38:32.180 --> 00:38:34.060
  • WHEN I CAME TO CHRIST, I DISCOVERED WHO I WAS, I
  • 00:38:34.080 --> 00:38:37.130
  • DISCOVERED THAT I HAD A HEAVENLY FATHER BECAUSE
  • 00:38:37.150 --> 00:38:40.050
  • I GREW UP IN A SINGLE PARENT HOME, AND WENT TO
  • 00:38:40.070 --> 00:38:43.160
  • BOARDING SCHOOL, SO COMING INTO THE CHRISTIAN
  • 00:38:43.180 --> 00:38:45.200
  • WORLD, I DISCOVERED GOD AS MY FATHER, THE CHURCH
  • 00:38:45.220 --> 00:38:48.140
  • AS MY FAMILY, AND SO I PREACHED A LOT AROUND
  • 00:38:48.160 --> 00:38:51.110
  • THAT AND TRIED TO INCLUDE PEOPLE AND BUILD PEOPLE
  • 00:38:51.130 --> 00:38:54.070
  • INTO UNDERSTANDING GOD AS THEIR FATHER, NO MATTER
  • 00:38:54.090 --> 00:38:56.090
  • WHAT KIND OF DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY
  • 00:38:56.110 --> 00:38:57.210
  • YOU'VE GOT, YOU'VE GOT YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND
  • 00:38:57.230 --> 00:38:59.250
  • YOUR CHURCH FAMILY THAT CAN BUILD INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:38:59.270 --> 00:39:02.120
  • AND PEOPLE FIND A SECURITY IN THAT.
  • 00:39:02.140 --> 00:39:04.120
  • THEY GET TO KNOW THAT GOD IS A LOVING FATHER.
  • 00:39:04.140 --> 00:39:06.180
  • IF THEY'VE HAD BAD ROLE MODELS AS WELL.
  • 00:39:06.200 --> 00:39:08.240
  • SO THAT HELPED ME TREMENDOUSLY COMING TO
  • 00:39:08.260 --> 00:39:10.210
  • CHRIST, COMING TO KNOW THE FATHER AND BEING
  • 00:39:10.230 --> 00:39:12.240
  • BUILT INTO THE CHURCH FAMILY.
  • 00:39:12.260 --> 00:39:15.120
  • - YOU'RE SEEMINGLY IN THE AGE GROUP THAT IS
  • 00:39:15.140 --> 00:39:20.120
  • THERE A CHANCE YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN A HIPPY?
  • 00:39:20.140 --> 00:39:22.270
  • IS THERE A CHANCE?
  • 00:39:22.290 --> 00:39:24.120
  • - KIND OF. - SO YOU WERE A HIPPY.
  • 00:39:24.140 --> 00:39:26.280
  • - SIXTIES, SEVENTIES, ALL THAT SORT OF GENERATION.
  • 00:39:27.000 --> 00:39:29.180
  • - AND SO BEFORE BECOMING A CHRISTIAN AND HAVING
  • 00:39:29.200 --> 00:39:36.240
  • THAT IDENTITY, WHAT DID IT FEEL LIKE BEFORE THAT
  • 00:39:36.260 --> 00:39:40.230
  • TIME? WHAT WAS THE LACK OF THAT UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:39:40.250 --> 00:39:45.090
  • OF WHO YOU WERE? WHAT DID THAT FEEL LIKE?
  • 00:39:45.110 --> 00:39:47.270
  • - I THINK BEING IN A SINGLE PARENT HOME,
  • 00:39:47.290 --> 00:39:50.190
  • I FELT DEFINITELY A SENSE OF LACK, AND OUR
  • 00:39:50.210 --> 00:39:53.040
  • GENERATION WAY BACK THEN YOU DEFINITELY FELT LIKE
  • 00:39:53.060 --> 00:39:56.090
  • YOU WERE LESS THAN OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:39:56.110 --> 00:39:58.290
  • PARENTS WOULD OFTEN ASK WHERE IS YOUR FATHER?
  • 00:39:59.010 --> 00:40:01.020
  • I DON'T HAVE ONE.
  • 00:40:01.040 --> 00:40:02.150
  • STRAIGHT AWAY THERE WOULD BE AN ALIENATION.
  • 00:40:02.170 --> 00:40:04.130
  • THAT CHILD'S PARENTS WOULD SAY YOU CAN'T HANG
  • 00:40:04.150 --> 00:40:06.000
  • OUT WITH HIM ANYMORE.
  • 00:40:06.020 --> 00:40:07.140
  • THE WORLD'S SO DIFFERENT NOW, BUT AT THAT TIME IT
  • 00:40:07.160 --> 00:40:09.170
  • GAVE YOU A GREAT SENSE OF INADEQUACY.
  • 00:40:09.190 --> 00:40:11.190
  • I WAS ALSO IN A RELIGIOUS BOARDING SCHOOL.
  • 00:40:11.210 --> 00:40:15.040
  • WHY MENTION THE NAME. AND THAT ALSO GAVE ME A SENSE
  • 00:40:15.060 --> 00:40:17.260
  • OF ALIENATION BECAUSE RELIGION WAS DETACHED
  • 00:40:17.280 --> 00:40:20.050
  • AND FORMAL AND IT WASN'T REAL.
  • 00:40:20.070 --> 00:40:22.280
  • SO WHEN I CAME OUT OF THERE, I WENT INTO THE
  • 00:40:23.000 --> 00:40:24.170
  • HARE KRISHNA MOVEMENT.
  • 00:40:24.190 --> 00:40:26.020
  • GOT INVOLVED IN THEIR MEETINGS IN CAPE TOWN.
  • 00:40:26.040 --> 00:40:28.070
  • - WHY?
  • 00:40:28.090 --> 00:40:29.150
  • - THE WHOLE THING TRYING FIND YOURSELF, WHY AM I
  • 00:40:29.170 --> 00:40:31.230
  • HERE, IS THERE ANY MEANING?
  • 00:40:31.250 --> 00:40:33.260
  • TAKING DRUGS, SMOKING DOPE, LSD, ALL THAT
  • 00:40:33.280 --> 00:40:36.260
  • STUFF, THE MUSIC, THE WHOLE MUSIC THING.
  • 00:40:36.280 --> 00:40:39.100
  • AND THEN WE WERE INVITED TO THE JESUS PEOPLE,
  • 00:40:39.120 --> 00:40:42.050
  • LONG HAIRED PEOPLE WHO DISCOVERED CHRIST.
  • 00:40:42.070 --> 00:40:45.000
  • THE CHURCH WASN'T FORMAL, IT WAS REAL, AND THAT'S
  • 00:40:45.020 --> 00:40:47.220
  • THE WAY I WAS INTRODUCED INTO A CHRISTIAN CHURCH
  • 00:40:47.240 --> 00:40:50.100
  • FAMILY AS WELL AS TO GOD AS MY FATHER.
  • 00:40:50.120 --> 00:40:52.290
  • AND I THINK IT WAS A MASSIVE TURNAROUND
  • 00:40:53.010 --> 00:40:54.270
  • IN THAT DISCOVERY.
  • 00:40:54.290 --> 00:40:57.040
  • - WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE WITH THAT?
  • 00:40:57.060 --> 00:41:00.020
  • I GREW UP IN A FAMILY WHERE MY MOM AND DAD WERE
  • 00:41:00.040 --> 00:41:03.080
  • MARRIED UNTIL DEATH DID THEY PART, AND SO I DON'T
  • 00:41:03.100 --> 00:41:08.220
  • QUITE, I CAN'T COMPREHEND WHAT THAT MIGHT HAVE FELT
  • 00:41:08.240 --> 00:41:12.260
  • LIKE. WHAT DID THAT DO TO YOU PERSONALLY?
  • 00:41:12.280 --> 00:41:16.080
  • - I THINK YOU DON'T HAVE THAT MENTORING.
  • 00:41:16.100 --> 00:41:18.060
  • IT'S REALLY SURVIVAL. MY MOM WORKED TWO JOBS.
  • 00:41:18.080 --> 00:41:20.270
  • SHE WAS BRILLIANT, ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT
  • 00:41:20.290 --> 00:41:23.130
  • WOMAN, BUILT INTO ME A LOT OF FINE VALUES, GAVE
  • 00:41:23.150 --> 00:41:27.060
  • ME A SOUND GROUNDING, BUT THERE'S LIKE A LACK.
  • 00:41:27.080 --> 00:41:30.240
  • THERE'S A DIMENSION THAT'S MISSING, WHEREAS
  • 00:41:30.260 --> 00:41:33.110
  • GOD IS THE FATHER IT'S LIKE A MENTOR, HE'S YOUR
  • 00:41:33.130 --> 00:41:35.250
  • REASON FOR BEING, HE'S YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:41:35.270 --> 00:41:38.020
  • IT'S A DIFFERENT DIMENSION THERE.
  • 00:41:38.040 --> 00:41:39.260
  • I EXPERIENCED THAT WITH UNCLES, FRIENDS AND
  • 00:41:39.280 --> 00:41:42.130
  • UNCLES, BUT WHEN I CAME TO CHRIST IT WAS LIKE
  • 00:41:42.150 --> 00:41:44.270
  • I SETTLED, LIKE YOU'RE ANCHORED.
  • 00:41:44.290 --> 00:41:48.040
  • AND I TRIED TO BUILD THAT INTO OUR CHURCH
  • 00:41:48.060 --> 00:41:49.250
  • AND CHURCH FAMILY.
  • 00:41:49.270 --> 00:41:52.030
  • I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN CHURCH AS THE ANSWER.
  • 00:41:52.050 --> 00:41:54.170
  • NEXT TO CHRIST, THE CHURCH IS THE VEHICLE FOR
  • 00:41:54.190 --> 00:41:56.270
  • BUILDING FAMILIES AND RESTORING FAMILIES AND
  • 00:41:56.290 --> 00:41:59.070
  • CREATING A SENSE OF FATHERING AND DEVELOPING
  • 00:41:59.090 --> 00:42:01.290
  • YOUNG PEOPLE, GIVING THEM IDENTITY.
  • 00:42:02.010 --> 00:42:04.000
  • - MATT: IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:42:04.020 --> 00:42:06.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:42:06.140 --> 00:42:15.230
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:42:15.230 --> 00:42:23.100
  • - YOU KNOW THAT THE FARMS IN THIS COUNTRY,
  • 00:42:23.120 --> 00:42:25.080
  • THE FARMERS, WHEN THESE BOYS LEFT HERE, THESE MEN,
  • 00:42:25.100 --> 00:42:29.030
  • THEY WENT BACK TO THEIR FARMS AND THE FIRST
  • 00:42:29.050 --> 00:42:30.110
  • THING THEY DID THEY SAID TOMORROW MORNING WE START
  • 00:42:30.130 --> 00:42:33.130
  • DOING WORK WITH THE WORD OF GOD AND WITH PRAYER.
  • 00:42:33.150 --> 00:42:37.200
  • AND I DID THAT. IT'S CHANGED THE DYNAMICS OF THE FARM.
  • 00:42:37.220 --> 00:42:42.040
  • ALL THE WORKERS ARE PRAYING TOGETHER, AND
  • 00:42:42.060 --> 00:42:43.190
  • THEY'RE READING THE WORD OF GOD, AND THERE'S A
  • 00:42:43.210 --> 00:42:45.100
  • SPIRIT OF LOVE AND TOGETHERNESS THAT THEY
  • 00:42:45.120 --> 00:42:47.180
  • NEVER HAD BEFORE.
  • 00:42:47.200 --> 00:42:48.240
  • BEFORE THERE WAS FIGHTING ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:42:48.260 --> 00:42:50.280
  • THIS IS THE GOD OF PEACE. JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:42:51.000 --> 00:42:54.040
  • AND IT'S JESUS IN US THAT'S THE HOPE OF GLORY.
  • 00:42:54.060 --> 00:42:57.060
  • COLOSSIANS 1:27, CHRIST IN YOU HOPE OF GLORY.
  • 00:42:57.080 --> 00:43:01.010
  • THAT'S ALL WE'RE DOING IS TELLING MEN HOW TO BE
  • 00:43:01.030 --> 00:43:03.130
  • MEN. AND IT'S AS EASY AND IT'S AS BEAUTIFUL AS THAT
  • 00:43:03.150 --> 00:43:07.000
  • BECAUSE MEN ARE MEN.
  • 00:43:07.020 --> 00:43:08.160
  • YOU KNOW SOME LADIES WEAR CAMOUFLAGE, LET'S DO IT,
  • 00:43:08.180 --> 00:43:11.130
  • AND THEY PUT ON THEIR OVERALLS AND TRY TO SNEAK
  • 00:43:11.150 --> 00:43:16.020
  • IN, BUT THE BOYS WERE VERY UNHAPPY WHEN THEY HEARD
  • 00:43:16.040 --> 00:43:18.100
  • THAT. BECAUSE THESE BOYS ARE SHOWERING IN THE OPEN.
  • 00:43:18.120 --> 00:43:22.020
  • SOME OF THE MIGHTY MEN-- THEY'VE GOT BIG CENTER
  • 00:43:22.040 --> 00:43:23.140
  • PIVOTS, AND THE FARMER JUST TURNS ON THE WATER
  • 00:43:23.160 --> 00:43:26.040
  • AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF THEM JUST WASHING
  • 00:43:26.060 --> 00:43:28.240
  • TOGETHER. BUT WHEN THEY GO HOME, THEY'RE CHANGED.
  • 00:43:28.260 --> 00:43:33.130
  • AND AS I SAID TO YOU EARLIER ON, TO GET THOSE
  • 00:43:33.150 --> 00:43:34.270
  • LETTERS FROM THE CHILDREN, MY DAD HAS COME
  • 00:43:34.290 --> 00:43:37.120
  • HOME. HE DOESN'T DRINK ANYMORE.
  • 00:43:37.140 --> 00:43:38.270
  • HE DOESN'T BEAT MY MOTHER ANYMORE.
  • 00:43:38.290 --> 00:43:41.170
  • HE BRINGS MONEY HOME. MY DAD'S CHANGED.
  • 00:43:41.190 --> 00:43:43.210
  • HE'S AN ELDER IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:43:43.230 --> 00:43:46.000
  • MY HUSBAND, THE ONE WHO USED TO COURT ME AND TAKE
  • 00:43:46.020 --> 00:43:49.120
  • FLOWERS IS DOING IT AGAIN. THAT'S GOD.
  • 00:43:49.140 --> 00:43:52.030
  • THAT IS, I'VE SEEN MIRACLES, YOU KNOW THAT.
  • 00:43:52.050 --> 00:43:54.170
  • I'VE SEEN MIRACLES, I'VE SEEN THE ELEMENTS CHANGE,
  • 00:43:54.190 --> 00:43:57.250
  • BUT I WANT TO TELL YOU THE GREATEST MIRACLE OF
  • 00:43:57.270 --> 00:43:59.120
  • ALL IS WHEN A MAN'S HEART IS CHANGED.
  • 00:43:59.140 --> 00:44:01.260
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17, IF ANY MAN BE IN CHRIST OR
  • 00:44:01.280 --> 00:44:05.150
  • WOMAN OR BOY OR GIRL, HE'S A NEW CREATION.
  • 00:44:05.170 --> 00:44:08.020
  • OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:44:08.040 --> 00:44:10.060
  • BEHOLD ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW.
  • 00:44:10.080 --> 00:44:12.140
  • TEARS LIKE RIVERS ON THIS GROUND, MEN BREAKING DOWN
  • 00:44:12.160 --> 00:44:16.060
  • ON THEIR KNEES.
  • 00:44:16.080 --> 00:44:17.240
  • THEY'VE NEVER GOT ON THEIR KNEES BEFORE.
  • 00:44:17.260 --> 00:44:19.130
  • YOU KNOW THAT PRIDE AND ARROGANCE.
  • 00:44:19.150 --> 00:44:21.050
  • I CAME FROM THAT BACKGROUND.
  • 00:44:21.070 --> 00:44:22.260
  • I LOVE MY DAD BUT A STIFF UPPER LIP, COWBOYS DON'T
  • 00:44:22.280 --> 00:44:26.040
  • CRY. I HUG MY SONS LIKE YOU DO YOUR SONS.
  • 00:44:26.060 --> 00:44:30.240
  • I LOVE THEM!
  • 00:44:30.260 --> 00:44:32.100
  • THE SOUTH AFRICAN PEOPLE KISS THEIR CHILDREN HERE.
  • 00:44:32.120 --> 00:44:36.170
  • THEY RUN OFF THE RUGBY FIELD, BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS
  • 00:44:36.190 --> 00:44:38.240
  • AND THEY HUG THEM. I DO THE SAME.
  • 00:44:38.260 --> 00:44:40.280
  • AND THE LORD TAUGHT ME THAT.
  • 00:44:41.000 --> 00:44:42.220
  • SO THERE'S A FREEDOM THAT TAKES PLACE, AND THERE
  • 00:44:42.240 --> 00:44:45.090
  • WERE FATHERLESS MEN HERE THAT LEFT HERE WITH
  • 00:44:45.110 --> 00:44:48.030
  • FATHERS BECAUSE THEY JUST LINKED UP.
  • 00:44:48.050 --> 00:44:50.120
  • THE LEGACY JUST CARRIED ON.
  • 00:44:50.140 --> 00:44:52.200
  • NEXT WEEK I'VE GOT 160 MEN THAT I AM PERSONALLY
  • 00:44:52.220 --> 00:44:55.290
  • MENTORING ARE COMING HERE FOR THREE DAYS.
  • 00:44:56.010 --> 00:44:58.280
  • THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE WITH YOU.
  • 00:44:59.000 --> 00:45:00.280
  • AND THEY'RE COMING HERE BECAUSE THEY WANT A DAD.
  • 00:45:01.000 --> 00:45:03.010
  • AND THESE ARE WEALTHY MEN, BIG OPERATORS,
  • 00:45:03.030 --> 00:45:05.230
  • PROFESSIONAL SPORTSMEN AND ALSO POOR MEN THAT
  • 00:45:05.250 --> 00:45:08.180
  • SWEPT THE STREETS. ALL THE SAME.
  • 00:45:08.200 --> 00:45:10.280
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD DID, DIDN'T HE?
  • 00:45:11.000 --> 00:45:12.150
  • HOW MANY OF THE DISCIPLES WERE PRIESTS?
  • 00:45:12.170 --> 00:45:14.070
  • NOT ONE.
  • 00:45:14.090 --> 00:45:15.190
  • WE HAD A TERRORIST, WE HAD FISHERMAN, FARMERS.
  • 00:45:15.210 --> 00:45:18.230
  • SO YEAH, THIS IS A GOD PLACE.
  • 00:45:18.250 --> 00:45:22.180
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:45:22.200 --> 00:45:29.100
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:45:29.100 --> 00:45:36.250
  • - BROTHER SIPHO,
  • 00:45:36.270 --> 00:45:38.240
  • FIRST OF ALL, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL AFTERNOON HERE
  • 00:45:38.260 --> 00:45:41.070
  • IN SOUTHERN AFRICA. WE ARE IN SOUTH AFRICA.
  • 00:45:41.090 --> 00:45:45.030
  • WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO GET
  • 00:45:45.050 --> 00:45:50.040
  • OUT TO THE VIEWERSHIP HERE IN THIS COUNTRY,
  • 00:45:50.060 --> 00:45:53.180
  • MAYBE EVEN THIS CONTINENT?
  • 00:45:53.200 --> 00:45:55.140
  • - AFRICA NEEDS, THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS TO GET
  • 00:45:55.160 --> 00:45:58.000
  • THAT MESSAGE THAT GOD CREATED US IN HIS IMAGE,
  • 00:45:58.020 --> 00:46:01.070
  • IN HIS LIKENESS.
  • 00:46:01.090 --> 00:46:04.050
  • AND GOD IS A KING AND SITS ON HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:46:04.070 --> 00:46:08.100
  • JESUS WAS BORN KING, AND HE SITS ON HIS THRONE
  • 00:46:08.120 --> 00:46:13.060
  • ON THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER.
  • 00:46:13.080 --> 00:46:15.000
  • SO WE WERE BORN TO BE KINGS BECAUSE WE ARE
  • 00:46:15.020 --> 00:46:17.130
  • CREATED IN HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS.
  • 00:46:17.150 --> 00:46:19.290
  • WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS IN GENESIS, WHAT IT SAYS IS
  • 00:46:20.010 --> 00:46:24.050
  • THAT YOUR IDENTITY COMES FROM GOD BECAUSE WE TAKE
  • 00:46:24.070 --> 00:46:29.010
  • AFTER THE GENES OF YOUR FATHER.
  • 00:46:29.030 --> 00:46:30.210
  • SO OUR SPECIAL GENES ARE THOSE OF A KING,
  • 00:46:30.230 --> 00:46:34.000
  • OF KINGS AND PRIESTS, AND THEREFORE-- THE BIBLE CALLS
  • 00:46:34.020 --> 00:46:38.130
  • US ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:46:38.150 --> 00:46:40.090
  • SO WE ARE PRIESTS WHO ARE BORN KINGS.
  • 00:46:40.110 --> 00:46:44.200
  • AND WE KNOW THAT THE KINGS CAN OCCUPY ALL
  • 00:46:44.220 --> 00:46:50.260
  • TERRITORIES. IN OTHER WORDS, THERE'S NO RESTRICTION.
  • 00:46:50.280 --> 00:46:53.090
  • YOU CANNOT SAY KING CANNOT GET INVOLVED IN
  • 00:46:53.110 --> 00:46:55.260
  • EDUCATION OR IN THE SPECIAL-- OR IN ANY SECTOR.
  • 00:46:55.290 --> 00:47:01.210
  • THE KINGS HAVE AUTHORITY OVER ALL SECTORS OF SOCIETY.
  • 00:47:01.230 --> 00:47:04.270
  • THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND FOR INSTANCE IS THE
  • 00:47:04.290 --> 00:47:06.260
  • HEAD OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:47:06.280 --> 00:47:08.160
  • SHE'S ACTUALLY EXERCISING THE IDENTITY THAT GOD
  • 00:47:08.180 --> 00:47:12.270
  • GAVE HER TO BE BOTH, SHE'S A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:47:12.290 --> 00:47:16.170
  • SO WE WERE ALL BORN TO BE LIKE THAT, BUT IT HAS TO
  • 00:47:16.190 --> 00:47:20.170
  • GET INTO OUR CONSCIOUSNESS TO SAY
  • 00:47:20.190 --> 00:47:22.290
  • I CAN BE A GIANT IN BUSINESS, A GIANT IN
  • 00:47:23.010 --> 00:47:26.190
  • POLITICS, IN MEDIA, IN COMMUNICATIONS, IN
  • 00:47:26.210 --> 00:47:31.270
  • SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY AND STILL SERVE GOD.
  • 00:47:31.290 --> 00:47:35.070
  • - WHAT IF THERE'S SOMEBODY WATCHING THAT
  • 00:47:35.090 --> 00:47:37.150
  • JUST CAN'T SEE THAT IMAGE INSIDE OF THEM.
  • 00:47:37.170 --> 00:47:41.100
  • WHAT DO WE SAY TO SOMEONE TO GET THEM STARTED IN
  • 00:47:41.120 --> 00:47:44.250
  • UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY NEED TO TAKE THE
  • 00:47:44.270 --> 00:47:46.140
  • IMAGE OF THEIR FATHER?
  • 00:47:46.160 --> 00:47:47.290
  • - OUR OWN DESTINY IS DETERMINED BY OUR CREATOR.
  • 00:47:48.010 --> 00:47:53.040
  • WE WERE BORN WITH A DESTINY DEFINED,
  • 00:47:53.060 --> 00:47:58.090
  • PREDETERMINED, SO FOR YOU TO EXERCISE AND TO
  • 00:47:58.110 --> 00:48:02.040
  • ACHIEVE THAT DESTINY, YOU NEED TO BE ASSOCIATED
  • 00:48:02.060 --> 00:48:05.220
  • WITH YOUR SOURCE, WITH YOUR CREATOR, AND YOUR
  • 00:48:05.240 --> 00:48:08.200
  • CREATOR GIVES YOU HIS IDENTITY.
  • 00:48:08.220 --> 00:48:10.220
  • SO YOU ARE LIKE ME.
  • 00:48:10.240 --> 00:48:12.140
  • I CREATED, I BREATHED MY SPIRIT INTO YOU, WHICH
  • 00:48:12.160 --> 00:48:16.150
  • IS WHAT MAKES YOU ALIVE, IT'S GOD'S SPIRIT.
  • 00:48:16.170 --> 00:48:20.120
  • YOU TAKE IT OUT, THE BODY COLLAPSES, DIES AND HAS TO BE
  • 00:48:20.140 --> 00:48:23.250
  • BURIED. SO THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN US IS THE IDENTITY OF
  • 00:48:23.270 --> 00:48:27.140
  • GOD. IN OTHER WORDS, WE ARE LITTLE GODS.
  • 00:48:27.160 --> 00:48:29.170
  • WE CAN DO WHAT GOD CAN DO.
  • 00:48:29.190 --> 00:48:31.080
  • I LIKE WHAT JOEL OSTEEN WAS SPEAKING EARLY ON
  • 00:48:31.100 --> 00:48:35.110
  • WHEN HE STARTS HIS SERMONS TO SAY "THIS IS
  • 00:48:35.130 --> 00:48:38.100
  • MY BIBLE, I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM, I HAVE WHAT IT
  • 00:48:38.120 --> 00:48:41.080
  • SAYS I HAVE, I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO,"
  • 00:48:41.100 --> 00:48:43.280
  • AND THAT'S TRUE!
  • 00:48:44.000 --> 00:48:45.190
  • AND IT STARTS WITH A MINDSET OF BELIEVING.
  • 00:48:45.210 --> 00:48:48.070
  • BUT WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS YOU ARE, WHAT IT
  • 00:48:48.090 --> 00:48:51.080
  • SAYS YOU CAN DO, YOU CAN.
  • 00:48:51.100 --> 00:48:54.020
  • SO YOUR FAITH DETERMINES WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE.
  • 00:48:54.040 --> 00:48:58.150
  • WHEN THE BIBLE SPEAKS TO US, IT DOES
  • 00:48:58.170 --> 00:49:00.270
  • NOT NEED A TRANSLATION.
  • 00:49:00.290 --> 00:49:02.260
  • IT IS LITERAL. EVERYWHERE IT MEANS WHAT GOD SAYS.
  • 00:49:02.280 --> 00:49:06.200
  • SO YOU JUST TAKE IT LIKE THAT AND IT WORKS FOR ME.
  • 00:49:06.220 --> 00:49:09.180
  • - WOW. THANK YOU MY BROTHER.
  • 00:49:09.200 --> 00:49:11.060

  • FATHER. I COULDN'T HELP TO GO HOME FIRST.
  • 00:49:58.000 --> 00:50:02.000
  • I WENT TO ANDY'S SON AND SAID ANDY, PLEASE, I WANT
  • 00:50:02.020 --> 00:50:06.050

  • BACK YOU ARE FROM NOW ON MY SPIRITUAL SON.
  • 00:50:12.060 --> 00:50:16.150
  • AND I FELT IT WAS AMAZING, NOT ONLY BECAUSE
  • 00:50:16.170 --> 00:50:20.070
  • OF HIM BUT BECAUSE OF GOD, BECAUSE I HAD A LACK
  • 00:50:20.090 --> 00:50:23.190
  • OF A SPIRITUAL FATHER.
  • 00:50:23.210 --> 00:50:26.070

  • YEARS OF THEOLOGICAL STUDY.
  • 00:50:38.080 --> 00:50:39.210
  • I LEARNED MORE FROM HIM.
  • 00:50:39.230 --> 00:50:42.200
  • I WENT FROM THE FAITH LIFE, ESPECIALLY THE
  • 00:50:42.220 --> 00:50:47.190
  • FAITH LIFE AS WHAT I LEARNED FROM ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:50:47.210 --> 00:50:51.270
  • NOW, WHEN HE'S PREACHING SOMEWHERE,
  • 00:50:51.290 --> 00:50:54.040
  • WE'VE GOT AN OPEN DOOR. I AM HIS SON.
  • 00:50:54.060 --> 00:50:57.100
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:50:57.120 --> 00:50:59.010
  • - AND THIS MORNING WHEN I MET HIM, HE SAID HI MY

  • HE'S PUTTING US IN FRONT OF THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:51:19.140 --> 00:51:22.110
  • EVERY MORNING AT 4:00 O'CLOCK HE STOOD UP AND
  • 00:51:22.130 --> 00:51:25.280
  • HE'S BEGGING FOR US BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:51:26.000 --> 00:51:30.110
  • ONCE A YEAR AND THAT'S A HIGH POINT FOR US, WE GO

  • HE DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING FROM US.
  • 00:52:07.090 --> 00:52:10.060
  • AND WE HAVE AN OPEN DOOR.
  • 00:52:10.080 --> 00:52:12.180
  • I MEAN THIS IS A BUSY MAN.
  • 00:52:12.200 --> 00:52:14.220
  • HE CANNOT ANSWER ALL HIS CALLS, BUT WE ARE

  • HUMBLE YOURSELF.
  • 00:55:15.090 --> 00:55:16.230
  • SEE, GOD SAYS IN I PETER 5:5, HE RESISTS THE

  • PROUD, AND HE GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.
  • 00:55:19.060 --> 00:55:21.240
  • ALL US MEN, WE THINK-- WE PUT THE MASK ON, TOUGH BOY.

  • 00:55:43.110 --> 00:55:45.030
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY TO A LOT OF YOUNG LADIES,
  • 00:55:45.050 --> 00:55:47.150
  • I SAY NO SEX UNTIL YOU GET MARRIED.
  • 00:55:47.170 --> 00:55:50.280
  • AND THEY LOOK AT ME WITH BIG EYES.
  • 00:55:51.000 --> 00:55:52.240
  • YOU THINK THAT MAN LOVES YOU.
  • 00:55:52.260 --> 00:55:54.170
  • PUT HIM TO THE TEST.
  • 00:55:54.190 --> 00:55:56.200
  • SAY TO HIM AFTER TODAY NO MORE SLEEPING TOGETHER
  • 00:55:56.220 --> 00:55:58.290
  • UNTIL OUR WEDDING DAY. SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:55:59.010 --> 00:56:00.290
  • IF HE WALKS OUT ON YOU HE NEVER LOVED YOU
  • 00:56:01.010 --> 00:56:02.240
  • IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:56:02.260 --> 00:56:04.240
  • BUT IF HE SAYS I'M HAPPY FOR THAT, THEN YOU'VE MET
  • 00:56:04.260 --> 00:56:07.130
  • A GOOD MAN. SO GOD EXPECTS US TO WALK THE TALK.
  • 00:56:07.150 --> 00:56:12.280
  • A LOT OF GUYS TALK ABOUT IT BUT THERE'S NO ACTION.
  • 00:56:13.000 --> 00:56:15.100
  • WHATEVER ON THIS GROUND IS ACTION.
  • 00:56:15.120 --> 00:56:17.120
  • BY THE WAY, WE DON'T HOLD IT, YOU CAN WANT HOLD IT.
  • 00:56:17.140 --> 00:56:20.000
  • YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE MATT.
  • 00:56:20.020 --> 00:56:21.140
  • I'M A NATURALIST, A FARMER, THAT WILD BIRD
  • 00:56:21.160 --> 00:56:23.260
  • COMES AND SITS ON YOUR HAND AND YOU FEED HIM,
  • 00:56:23.280 --> 00:56:26.210
  • RIGHT, AND HE FLIES AWAY AND HE BRINGS ANOTHER ONE.
  • 00:56:26.230 --> 00:56:28.190
  • YOU TRY TO HOLD HIM, YOU KILL HIM.
  • 00:56:28.210 --> 00:56:31.270
  • YOU CAN'T HOLD YOUR BOYS.
  • 00:56:31.290 --> 00:56:33.220
  • YOU'VE GOT TO RELEASE THEM.
  • 00:56:33.240 --> 00:56:34.280
  • WHEN YOU RELEASE THEM, THEY COME BACK.
  • 00:56:35.000 --> 00:56:36.150
  • WHEN YOU TRY AND DOMINATE THEM, I'M TALKING TO SOME
  • 00:56:36.170 --> 00:56:38.100
  • DADS HERE, YOU'RE TRYING TO DOMINATE YOUR
  • 00:56:38.120 --> 00:56:41.040
  • CHILDREN, YOUR WIFE, YOU LOSE THEM ALL.
  • 00:56:41.060 --> 00:56:43.150
  • THEY MUST FOLLOW YOU BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU AND
  • 00:56:43.170 --> 00:56:45.260
  • BECAUSE THEY RESPECT YOU.
  • 00:56:45.280 --> 00:56:47.120
  • NOW I WANT TO PRAY, IS THAT OKAY?
  • 00:56:47.140 --> 00:56:48.260
  • I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN
  • 00:56:48.280 --> 00:56:50.120
  • MIRACLES. OH, YES.
  • 00:56:50.140 --> 00:56:52.060
  • I WASN'T NECESSARILY A GOOD FATHER EITHER
  • 00:56:52.080 --> 00:56:54.210
  • OR A GOOD HUSBAND.
  • 00:56:54.230 --> 00:56:56.200
  • I WAS A BIT ARROGANT, A BIT OVERPOWERING,
  • 00:56:56.220 --> 00:56:58.290
  • A SELF-MADE MAN. YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE.
  • 00:56:59.010 --> 00:57:01.120
  • I'LL DO IT MY WAY. IT DOESN'T WORK.
  • 00:57:01.140 --> 00:57:04.000
  • SO IF YOU'D LIKE TO CLOSE YOUR EYES WITH ME,
  • 00:57:04.020 --> 00:57:06.220
  • I WANT TO PRAY A PRAYER THAT I BELIEVE WILL
  • 00:57:06.240 --> 00:57:09.150
  • CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:57:09.170 --> 00:57:11.230
  • HEAVENLY FATHER, WE STAND HERE NOW IN THE OPEN,
  • 00:57:11.250 --> 00:57:14.200
  • AND SITTING NEXT TO MY FRIEND, MATT CROUCH,
  • 00:57:14.220 --> 00:57:17.130
  • YOU'VE GIVEN US A BEAUTIFUL DAY.
  • 00:57:17.150 --> 00:57:19.120
  • NO WIND, JUST HEAR A COUPLE OF BIRDS. THAT'S ALL.
  • 00:57:19.140 --> 00:57:22.070
  • YOU EVEN PUT A CLOUD OVER THE TOP OF THAT SUN.
  • 00:57:22.090 --> 00:57:24.050
  • IT'S AMAZING. THANK YOU JESUS.
  • 00:57:24.070 --> 00:57:25.240
  • I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES.
  • 00:57:25.260 --> 00:57:27.080
  • LORD, I PRAY FOR THAT COUPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:57:27.100 --> 00:57:28.270
  • STRUGGLING WITH THEIR MARRIAGE AT HOME.
  • 00:57:28.290 --> 00:57:30.270
  • I PRAY, SIR, THAT YOU'LL GET ON YOUR KNEES AFTER
  • 00:57:30.290 --> 00:57:33.230
  • THIS PROGRAM AND ASK YOUR WIFE TO FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:57:33.250 --> 00:57:37.050
  • AND MADAM, I ASK THAT YOU WOULD HAVE THE STRENGTH
  • 00:57:37.070 --> 00:57:39.270
  • AND THE HUMILITY AND THE GRACE TO FORGIVE YOUR
  • 00:57:39.290 --> 00:57:43.070
  • HUSBAND AND GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE.
  • 00:57:43.090 --> 00:57:46.090
  • SIR, PUT THAT BOTTLE AWAY.
  • 00:57:46.110 --> 00:57:48.150
  • NEVER GO BACK THERE. PUT THOSE DRUGS AWAY.
  • 00:57:48.170 --> 00:57:51.020
  • GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU A BRAND-NEW CHANCE, BUT IT
  • 00:57:51.040 --> 00:57:55.020
  • COMES THROUGH REPENTANCE.
  • 00:57:55.040 --> 00:57:57.230
  • NO REPENTANCE, NO REVIVAL.
  • 00:57:57.250 --> 00:58:00.240
