  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: FORGIVENESS
  • 00:00:12.060 --> 00:00:15.060
  • IS NOT OPTIONAL
  • 00:00:15.060 --> 00:00:16.040
  • IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:00:16.040 --> 00:00:18.000
  • MATTHEW 6:14 AND 15 SAYS,
  • 00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:20.030
  • "FOR IF YOU GIVE MEN
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:21.030
  • THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS,
  • 00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:23.010
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO
  • 00:00:23.010 --> 00:00:24.200
  • FORGIVE YOU."
  • 00:00:24.200 --> 00:00:25.290
  • NOTICE THIS PHRASE,
  • 00:00:25.290 --> 00:00:27.110
  • "BUT IF YOU FORGIVE NOT MEN
  • 00:00:27.110 --> 00:00:29.100
  • THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS,
  • 00:00:29.100 --> 00:00:31.050
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER
  • 00:00:31.050 --> 00:00:33.010
  • WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU,
  • 00:00:33.010 --> 00:00:34.220
  • NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER
  • 00:00:34.220 --> 00:00:36.010
  • FORGIVE YOU YOUR TRESPASSES."
  • 00:00:36.010 --> 00:00:38.040
  • LISTEN TO THE THUNDERING TRUTH
  • 00:00:38.040 --> 00:00:39.140
  • OF THIS VERSE.
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:41.100
  • IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE OTHER
  • 00:00:41.100 --> 00:00:42.150
  • PEOPLE,
  • 00:00:42.150 --> 00:00:43.230
  • GOD'S NOT JUST GOING TO LOOK
  • 00:00:43.230 --> 00:00:44.280
  • OVER IT;
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:45.280
  • HE IS NOT GOING TO FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:48.050
  • AND WITHOUT GOD'S FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:00:48.050 --> 00:00:50.030
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO ENTER
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:51.060
  • THE GATES OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:51.060 --> 00:00:52.290
  • FORGIVENESS IS A MAJOR DECISION
  • 00:00:52.290 --> 00:00:55.160
  • THAT WILL INDEED DETERMINE
  • 00:00:55.160 --> 00:00:57.200
  • YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY.
  • 00:00:57.200 --> 00:00:59.090
  • COLOSSIANS 3:13 READS,
  • 00:00:59.090 --> 00:01:01.060
  • "FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER --"
  • 00:01:01.060 --> 00:01:02.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:01:02.110 --> 00:01:03.140
  • "FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER."
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:04.260
  • "-- EVEN AS CHRIST FORGAVE YOU,
  • 00:01:04.260 --> 00:01:06.200
  • SO ALSO ARE YOU TO DO."
  • 00:01:06.200 --> 00:01:09.090
  • THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR.
  • 00:01:09.090 --> 00:01:10.260
  • IF YOU WILL NOT FORGIVE OTHERS,
  • 00:01:10.260 --> 00:01:12.210
  • GOD WON'T FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:01:12.210 --> 00:01:14.190
  • THERE ARE 62 WORDS
  • 00:01:14.190 --> 00:01:16.130
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.270
  • FOR FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:19.050
  • AND 22 TIMES OUT OF THOSE 62,
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:22.170
  • IT RELATES TO FORGIVING
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:24.150
  • OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:01:24.150 --> 00:01:25.230
  • SECONDLY,
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:26.220
  • FORGIVENESS IS THE SECRET
  • 00:01:26.220 --> 00:01:28.280
  • OF ABSOLUTE FREEDOM.
  • 00:01:28.280 --> 00:01:31.120
  • IT IS THE SECRET
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:33.000
  • OF ABSOLUTE FREEDOM.
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:34.280
  • FORGIVENESS BRINGS FREEDOM
  • 00:01:34.280 --> 00:01:36.200
  • FROM THOSE THAT HAVE HURT YOU.
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:39.000
  • THE SWEETEST REVENGE YOU WILL
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:40.220
  • EVER EXPERIENCE IS TO TOTALLY
  • 00:01:40.220 --> 00:01:43.140
  • FORGIVE AND FORGET
  • 00:01:43.140 --> 00:01:45.170
  • THE INCIDENT,
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:47.000
  • AND THEN YOU WILL BE FREE.
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:48.280
  • OTHERWISE,
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:49.190
  • YOU ARE IN A PRISON THAT YOU
  • 00:01:49.190 --> 00:01:51.040
  • ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE TO BUILD
  • 00:01:51.040 --> 00:01:52.220
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:53.250
  • BECAUSE THE FOOLISH OPINIONS
  • 00:01:53.250 --> 00:01:55.110
  • OF OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:56.040
  • SHOULD NOT SHAPE YOUR DESTINY,
  • 00:01:56.040 --> 00:01:58.040
  • AND YOUR PAST SHOULD NOT
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:01:59.120
  • CONTROL YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:01.080
  • FORGIVENESS BREAKS
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:02.160
  • THE HANDCUFFS.
  • 00:02:02.160 --> 00:02:03.120
  • IT OPENS THE DOOR.
  • 00:02:03.120 --> 00:02:05.040
  • FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY
  • 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:07.060
  • THAT REMOVES REVENGE,
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:09.020
  • AND BITTERNESS,
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:10.020
  • AND HATRED
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:11.010
  • FROM THE SOUL.
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:12.110
  • JESUS USED HIS LAST BREATH
  • 00:02:12.110 --> 00:02:14.090
  • ON THE CROSS TO FORGIVE THE
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:16.100
  • ROMANS, WHO WERE EXECUTING HIM.
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:18.290
  • HE LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:20.070
  • "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM;
  • 00:02:20.070 --> 00:02:21.140
  • FOR THEY DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:22.260
  • WHAT THEY'RE DOING."
  • 00:02:22.260 --> 00:02:25.100
  • THAT WAS HIS LAST EXAMPLE
  • 00:02:25.100 --> 00:02:27.290
  • TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:30.040
  • AND I CAN SEE THAT SOME OF YOU
  • 00:02:30.040 --> 00:02:32.020
  • SAY, "WELL PREACHER,
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:34.040
  • THAT KIND OF FORGIVENESS IS
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:35.150
  • UNREALISTIC IN A DOG-EAT-DOG
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:37.200
  • WORLD OF THE 21ST CENTURY."
  • 00:02:37.200 --> 00:02:40.020
  • WHY DON'T YOU GET REAL ABOUT
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:41.210
  • SOMETHING THAT'S HAPPENED
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:42.250
  • LATELY IN THE MATTER
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:44.120
  • OF FORGIVENESS?
  • 00:02:44.120 --> 00:02:46.030
  • LET ME TELL YOU THIS TRUE STORY
  • 00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:47.150
  • FROM THE DARK DAYS
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:48.190
  • OF THE KOREAN WAR.
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:50.150
  • A SOUTH KOREAN CHRISTIAN WAS
  • 00:02:50.150 --> 00:02:51.280
  • ARRESTED BY THE COMMUNISTS,
  • 00:02:51.280 --> 00:02:53.210
  • AND HE WAS ORDERED TO BE SHOT.
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:55.200
  • WHEN THE COMMUNIST COMMANDER
  • 00:02:55.200 --> 00:02:56.270
  • LEARNED THAT THE FOREIGNER
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:02:58.080
  • IN CHARGE OF THE --
  • 00:02:58.080 --> 00:03:00.080
  • WAS IN CHARGE OF THE LOCAL
  • 00:03:00.080 --> 00:03:01.090
  • ORPHANAGE --
  • 00:03:01.090 --> 00:03:02.180
  • HE WAS CARING FOR
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:03.170
  • SMALL CHILDREN.
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:05.040
  • -- AND SO HE DECIDED TO SPARE
  • 00:03:05.040 --> 00:03:08.020
  • THE LEADER OF THE ORPHANAGE.
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:09.220
  • BUT HE DECIDED TO SHOOT
  • 00:03:09.220 --> 00:03:11.060
  • HIS 19-YEAR-OLD BOY.
  • 00:03:11.240 --> 00:03:14.240
  • THE COMMUNIST LEADER TOOK
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.090
  • THE BELIEVER'S SON,
  • 00:03:16.090 --> 00:03:18.070
  • 19 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:03:18.070 --> 00:03:19.160
  • AND SHOT HIM DEAD IN FRONT
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:21.110
  • OF HIS FATHER AND MOTHER.
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:23.130
  • THE FORTUNES OF THE WAR
  • 00:03:23.130 --> 00:03:24.140
  • CHANGED.
  • 00:03:24.140 --> 00:03:25.210
  • AND THE SAME YOUNG
  • 00:03:25.210 --> 00:03:26.180
  • COMMUNIST LEADER WAS CAPTURED
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:28.110
  • BY U.N. FORCES.
  • 00:03:28.110 --> 00:03:29.210
  • HE WAS TRIED AND CONDEMNED.
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:32.170
  • BEFORE THE EXECUTIONER --
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:34.080
  • BEFORE THE EXECUTION
  • 00:03:34.080 --> 00:03:35.120
  • WAS CARRIED OUT,
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:36.220
  • THE CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:37.090
  • WHOSE SON HAD BEEN KILLED,
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:39.050
  • CAME AND PLED FOR THE LIFE
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:41.080
  • OF THIS COMMUNIST LEADER.
  • 00:03:41.080 --> 00:03:43.030
  • THE CHRISTIAN SAID,
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:44.030
  • "THIS MAN IS YOUNG.
  • 00:03:44.030 --> 00:03:46.090
  • IF YOU WILL GIVE HIM TO ME,
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:48.070
  • I WILL TRAIN HIM IN THE WAYS
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:50.080
  • OF THE LORD."
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:51.120
  • THE U.N. FORCES GRANTED
  • 00:03:51.120 --> 00:03:53.030
  • THIS STRANGE REQUEST.
  • 00:03:53.030 --> 00:03:54.250
  • AND THE FATHER TOOK
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:55.280
  • THE MURDERER OF HIS SON
  • 00:03:55.280 --> 00:03:58.120
  • INTO HIS HOME.
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:03:59.290
  • HE FORGAVE HIM.
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:01.080
  • HE LOVED HIM.
  • 00:04:01.080 --> 00:04:02.060
  • HE GAVE HIS HEART --
  • 00:04:02.060 --> 00:04:03.290
  • THIS MAN GAVE HIS HEART
  • 00:04:03.290 --> 00:04:05.050
  • TO CHRIST AND SERVED THE LORD
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:07.150
  • UNTIL THE DAY HE DIED,
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:09.160
  • AS A MISSIONARY.
  • 00:04:09.160 --> 00:04:10.290
  • THAT'S THE POWER
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:12.170
  • OF FORGIVENESS!
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:14.080
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:20.200
  • OR ARE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:21.290
  • OF THAT NICKEL?
  • 00:04:21.290 --> 00:04:23.220
  • YOU GET HIGH ON THE HATRED
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:26.160
  • YOU HAVE FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:04:26.290 --> 00:04:29.290
  • DO YOU RELISH PLANNING
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:31.290
  • THE REVENGE THAT YOU WANT
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.260
  • TO TAKE?
  • 00:04:33.260 --> 00:04:35.030
  • IF YOU WILL NOT FORGIVE
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:36.090
  • ANOTHER,
  • 00:04:36.090 --> 00:04:36.230
  • THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:38.130
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:39.110
  • NOT EVER!
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:41.150
  • WE ARE LIKE BEASTS
  • 00:04:41.150 --> 00:04:42.240
  • WHEN WE KILL EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:42.240 --> 00:04:44.120
  • WE'RE LIKE MEN
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:45.260
  • WHEN WE JUDGE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:48.000
  • WE ARE LIKE GOD
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:49.190
  • WHEN WE FORGIVE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:49.190 --> 00:04:51.150
  • FORGIVENESS IS A FULL PARDON.
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:53.200
  • IT'S A FRESH START.
  • 00:04:53.200 --> 00:04:55.110
  • IT'S ANOTHER CHANCE.
  • 00:04:55.110 --> 00:04:57.010
  • IT'S A NEW BEGINNING.
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:58.170
  • IT'S THE CANCELING OF A DEBT.
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:01.010
  • IT'S NOT BURYING THE HATCHET
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:02.230
  • WITH THE HANDLE UP SO YOU CAN
  • 00:05:02.230 --> 00:05:04.140
  • GET IT JUST IN CASE.
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:06.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:07.250
  • FORGIVENESS IS, FIRST,
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:09.070
  • AN ACT OF YOUR WILL.
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:11.230
  • IF YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:05:11.230 --> 00:05:14.110
  • FORGIVING SOMEBODY,
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:16.090
  • YOU'LL BE WAITING TILL YOUR
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:17.150
  • HAIR TURNS WHITER THAN MINE.
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:19.270
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:19.270 --> 00:05:20.150
  • IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:22.050
  • IN AN ACT OF COURAGEOUS FAITH,
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:26.180
  • FORGIVE THAT PERSON!
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:28.080
  • AND THEN WATCH GOD GO TO WORK
  • 00:05:28.080 --> 00:05:30.040
  • IN YOUR DEFENSE.
  • 00:05:30.040 --> 00:05:31.260
  • WATCH HOW EVERYTHING THEY PUT
  • 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:33.110
  • THEIR HANDS TO CRUMBLES,
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:35.180
  • AND EVERYTHING YOU PUT
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:36.160
  • YOUR HAND TO, GOD BLESSES.
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:39.000
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:45.230
  • FORGIVENESS WILL RELEASE
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:47.050
  • A HEALING FORCE THAT WILL
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:49.010
  • CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER.
  • 00:05:49.010 --> 00:05:51.060
  • JOY WILL REPLACE GRIEF.
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:53.230
  • PEACE WILL REPLACE ANGER.
  • 00:05:53.230 --> 00:05:56.160
  • LOVE WILL REPLACE HATE.
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:59.110
  • CONTENTMENT WILL REPLACE
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:01.120
  • FRUSTRATION.

  • IT IS PREVENTED FROM GETTING
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:48.090
  • TO THE NEXT COURT.
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:50.210
  • THE BIBLE IS SAYING,
  • 00:13:50.210 --> 00:13:51.220
  • WHEN YOU, HUSBAND,
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:53.250
  • DO NOT TREAT YOUR WIFE WELL,
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:56.140

  • ON THE BALD HEAD.
  • 00:14:02.150 --> 00:14:04.140
  • GOD IS NOT LISTENING.

  • HOW DO YOU FORGIVE?
  • 00:14:13.120 --> 00:14:14.200
  • TOTALLY.
  • 00:14:14.200 --> 00:14:15.230
  • JESUS, OUR TEACHER,
  • 00:14:15.230 --> 00:14:16.220
  • TOLD THE STORY
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:17.150
  • OF THE UNMERCIFUL SLAVE.

  • THE KING,

  • HIS ACCOUNTS,
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:21.260
  • CALLED IN A SLAVE THAT OWED HIM
  • 00:14:21.260 --> 00:14:24.090
  • TEN MILLION DOLLARS,
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:25.140
  • WHICH WAS TEN TIMES THE
  • 00:14:25.140 --> 00:14:26.230
  • NATIONAL DEBT OF THAT NATION.
  • 00:14:26.230 --> 00:14:29.110
  • AND WHEN THE SLAVE ANNOUNCED
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:30.160
  • THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:31.130
  • THE RESOURCES
  • 00:14:31.130 --> 00:14:32.280
  • AND PLEASE NOT TO THROW HIM,
  • 00:14:32.280 --> 00:14:34.090
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:14:34.090 --> 00:14:34.240
  • AND HIS CHILD
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:35.170
  • INTO DEBTOR'S PRISON,
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:37.240
  • THE KING FORGAVE HIM
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:38.270
  • OF THAT ENORMOUS FORTUNE.
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:41.070
  • AND HE WENT RIGHT OUT
  • 00:14:41.070 --> 00:14:42.040
  • IN THE STREETS AND FOUND
  • 00:14:42.040 --> 00:14:43.050
  • SOMEBODY WHO OWED HIM $20.
  • 00:14:43.050 --> 00:14:46.040
  • AND HE HAD THAT GUY THROWN
  • 00:14:46.040 --> 00:14:47.110
  • INTO DEBTOR'S PRISON,
  • 00:14:47.110 --> 00:14:49.160
  • BECAUSE IT WAS HIS RIGHT
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:50.220
  • AS A DEBTOR.
  • 00:14:51.010 --> 00:14:54.010
  • AND THE OTHER SLAVES HEARD
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:55.020
  • ABOUT IT,
  • 00:14:55.020 --> 00:14:55.170
  • AND THEY WENT TO THE KING,
  • 00:14:55.170 --> 00:14:56.140
  • AND SAID,
  • 00:14:56.140 --> 00:14:56.280
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:14:56.280 --> 00:14:58.090
  • TO THAT GUY THAT YOU FORGAVE
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:14:59.120
  • OF TEN MILLION DOLLARS?
  • 00:14:59.120 --> 00:15:01.250
  • HE WENT OUT AND FOUND A GUY
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:03.130
  • THAT OWED HIM 20 BUCKS,
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:04.260
  • AND THAT GUY IS NOW IN JAIL.
  • 00:15:04.260 --> 00:15:07.010
  • GOD WENT BACK --
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:08.030
  • THE KING WENT BACK TO THE GUY
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:10.280
  • THAT HE LET GO
  • 00:15:11.020 --> 00:15:14.020
  • OF THE TEN MILLION DOLLAR DEBT.
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:15.130
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:15.290
  • YOU UNMERCIFUL SERVANT.
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:19.110
  • I FORGAVE YOU OF ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:22.100
  • AND YOU WENT OUT AND DID THAT
  • 00:15:22.100 --> 00:15:23.190
  • TO ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.110
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:26.100
  • "AND HE WAS TURNED OVER
  • 00:15:26.100 --> 00:15:27.210
  • TO THE TORMENTORS."
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:30.180
  • AND HE WAS THERE FOR LIFE,
  • 00:15:30.180 --> 00:15:32.240
  • BECAUSE THERE'S NO WAY
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:33.280
  • HE WAS GOING TO PAY
  • 00:15:33.280 --> 00:15:35.120
  • 10 MILLION DOLLARS.
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:37.000
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO FORGIVE
  • 00:15:37.000 --> 00:15:38.240
  • SOMEONE ELSE,
  • 00:15:38.240 --> 00:15:40.110
  • GOD WILL TURN YOU OVER
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:41.260
  • TO THE TORMENTORS.
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:43.150
  • AND IN OUR SOCIETY,
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:44.220
  • MEDICAL SCIENCE ARE CALLING
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:46.220
  • THE TORMENTORS,
  • 00:15:46.220 --> 00:15:47.200
  • "BITTERNESS,"
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:48.150
  • AND "RAGE,"
  • 00:15:48.150 --> 00:15:49.180
  • AND "RESENTMENT,"
  • 00:15:49.180 --> 00:15:50.290
  • AND "ULCERS,"
  • 00:15:50.290 --> 00:15:52.040
  • AND "HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE."
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:53.230
  • THOSE KINDS OF THINGS
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:55.120
  • DO DESTROY YOUR HEALTH.
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:57.220
  • THEY PRODUCE MAJOR PHYSICAL
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:15:59.290
  • ILLNESS.
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.060
  • THERE'S A SIMPLE STATEMENT,
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:02.250
  • "FORGIVE AND LIVE."
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:04.160
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:05.150
  • FORGIVE AND LIVE.
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:07.220
  • FORGIVE AND LIVE.
  • 00:16:08.250 --> 00:16:11.250
  • HOW OFTEN SHALL I FORGIVE?
  • 00:16:13.290 --> 00:16:16.290
  • THERE WAS A JEWISH TEACHING
  • 00:16:16.290 --> 00:16:17.280
  • THAT IF YOU FORGAVE THREE
  • 00:16:17.280 --> 00:16:18.260
  • TIMES, YOU WERE GOOD.
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:21.060
  • SO PETER THOUGHT HE'D IMPRESS
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:22.090
  • THE LORD AND SAY,
  • 00:16:22.090 --> 00:16:23.060
  • "TILL SEVEN TIMES,"
  • 00:16:23.060 --> 00:16:25.000
  • BECAUSE THAT WAS --
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:25.270
  • REALLY SOUNDED SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:16:25.270 --> 00:16:27.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:28.130
  • AND JESUS SAID, NO.
  • 00:16:28.130 --> 00:16:29.080
  • "SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN,"
  • 00:16:29.080 --> 00:16:30.090
  • WHICH IS 490.
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:32.060
  • THE MESSAGE IS,
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:33.000
  • YOU FORGIVE UNTIL IT BECOMES
  • 00:16:33.000 --> 00:16:34.010
  • A HABIT.
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:36.010
  • NOW I KNOW YOU HAVE RELATIVES,
  • 00:16:36.010 --> 00:16:37.210
  • NOT YOU,
  • 00:16:37.210 --> 00:16:38.090
  • BUT YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:40.110

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:53.040 --> 00:16:56.040
  • YOU SAY,

  • "THERE ARE NOT PEOPLE LIKE
  • 00:16:56.170 --> 00:16:57.100
  • THAT."
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:57.240

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:00.100
  • DON'T KEEP RECORDS
  • 00:17:00.100 --> 00:17:02.040
  • OF ANYBODY'S FAULTS
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:04.020
  • BUT YOUR OWN,
  • 00:17:04.020 --> 00:17:05.110
  • AND YOU'LL FIND THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:06.280
  • VERY FEW TO KEEP.
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:09.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:13.020
  • THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:15.110
  • CAN RESTORE YOUR HOME.
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:16.190
  • THIS IS A STORY,
  • 00:17:16.190 --> 00:17:19.020
  • A TRUE STORY,
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:21.030
  • OF A REBELLIOUS YOUNG MAN
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:22.080
  • WHO BROKE THE LAW AND WAS SENT
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:24.160
  • TO PRISON FOR EIGHT YEARS.
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:26.220
  • HE KNEW THAT HIS PARENTS WERE
  • 00:17:26.220 --> 00:17:27.230
  • DEEPLY HURT BY HIS FOOLISH DEED
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:30.160
  • AND SHAMED BY HIS IMPRISONMENT.
  • 00:17:30.170 --> 00:17:33.170
  • AS TIMES PAST,
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:34.210
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER HIS DAD
  • 00:17:34.210 --> 00:17:36.020
  • WOULD LET HIM COME HOME AGAIN
  • 00:17:36.020 --> 00:17:38.120
  • AFTER HE WAS RELEASED
  • 00:17:38.120 --> 00:17:39.150
  • FROM PRISON.
  • 00:17:39.150 --> 00:17:41.020
  • SO HE WROTE A LETTER TO HIS
  • 00:17:41.020 --> 00:17:42.090
  • MOTHER STATING THAT HE'S GOING
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:44.220
  • TO BE RELEASED IN A FEW DAYS
  • 00:17:44.220 --> 00:17:47.000
  • AND WOULD TAKE THE TRAIN HOME.
  • 00:17:47.000 --> 00:17:49.100
  • AND IN THE LETTER,
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:50.000
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:51.230
  • "IF YOU AND DAD WILL FORGIVE ME
  • 00:17:51.230 --> 00:17:53.280
  • AND LET ME COME HOME AGAIN,
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:56.100
  • PLEASE TIE A PIECE OF BED SHEET
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:58.190
  • IN THE OAK TREE
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:18:00.130
  • BY THE RAILROAD TRACK,
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:02.160
  • AND I'LL GET OFF THE TRAIN.
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:04.280
  • IF I DO NOT SEE THE RIBBON
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:06.070
  • OF CLOTH IN THE TREE,
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:09.100
  • I WILL NOT GET OFF THE TRAIN.
  • 00:18:09.260 --> 00:18:12.260
  • AND I WILL NEVER CONTACT YOU
  • 00:18:12.260 --> 00:18:14.100
  • AGAIN."
  • 00:18:14.100 --> 00:18:16.120
  • THE DAY CAME FOR HIS RELEASE
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:17.200
  • FROM PRISON.
  • 00:18:17.200 --> 00:18:19.070
  • AND HE WALKED TO THE TRAIN
  • 00:18:19.070 --> 00:18:20.060
  • STATION,
  • 00:18:20.060 --> 00:18:21.090
  • AND HE BOUGHT A TICKET.
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:22.200
  • AND WITH EVERY TURN
  • 00:18:22.200 --> 00:18:23.200
  • OF THE WHEELS,
  • 00:18:23.200 --> 00:18:24.250
  • THE TENSION MOUNTED
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:26.120
  • IN HIS HEART AND IN HIS MIND.
  • 00:18:27.160 --> 00:18:30.160
  • WOULD MY PARENTS FORGIVE ME?
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:33.030
  • WOULD MY DAD FORGIVE ME?
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:35.220
  • WONDERING IF THAT CLOTH RIBBON
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:37.200
  • WOULD BE TIED IN THE TREE,
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:40.190
  • AS THE TRAIN ROUNDED THE BEND
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:42.200
  • THAT LED TO THEIR FARM,
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:44.050
  • HE COULD NOT STAND IT
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:45.050
  • ANY LONGER.
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:46.010
  • FEARING HE WOULD BE REJECTED
  • 00:18:46.010 --> 00:18:48.080
  • AND UNFORGIVEN,
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:49.110
  • HE ASKED THE MAN RIDING
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:50.230
  • NEXT TO HIM;
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:51.150
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:52.170
  • "WOULD YOU PLEASE LOOK OUT THE
  • 00:18:52.230 --> 00:18:55.230
  • WINDOW AT THE TREE THAT'S NEXT
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:58.240
  • TO THE RAILROAD TRACK AND TELL
  • 00:18:58.240 --> 00:19:01.080
  • ME IF YOU SEE A CLOTH RIBBON
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:03.270
  • TIED TO IT."
  • 00:19:03.270 --> 00:19:06.050
  • THE MAN LOOKED OUT THE TRAIN
  • 00:19:06.050 --> 00:19:07.190
  • WINDOW AT THE TREE.
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:10.120
  • AND THE BOY ASKED HIM,
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:11.220
  • "DO YOU SEE IT?"
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:13.200
  • THE MAN SAID, "NO.
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:16.080
  • I DON'T SEE ONE RIBBON;
  • 00:19:16.080 --> 00:19:18.040
  • I SEE HUNDREDS OF RIBBONS
  • 00:19:18.040 --> 00:19:20.050
  • ON EVERY BRANCH OF THAT TREE.
  • 00:19:20.050 --> 00:19:22.140
  • I SEE THEM TIED TO THE FENCE.
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:24.220
  • I SEE THEM ON THE CLOTHESLINE.
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:27.050
  • I SEE THEM ON THE BACK PORCH.
  • 00:19:27.050 --> 00:19:29.160
  • THERE'S SO MANY WHITE RIBBONS
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:30.250
  • ON THAT FARM;
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:32.060
  • IT LOOKS LIKE IT SNOWED.
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:34.010
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN?"
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:35.170
  • HE SHOUTED THROUGH TEARS,
  • 00:19:35.170 --> 00:19:37.150
  • AS HE LEAPED OFF THE TRAIN,
  • 00:19:37.150 --> 00:19:39.150
  • "IT MEANS I'VE BEEN FORGIVEN!
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:41.210
  • I'M GOING HOME!
  • 00:19:41.210 --> 00:19:43.080
  • I'M GOING HOME!
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:44.290
  • I'M GOING HOME!"
  • 00:19:44.290 --> 00:19:46.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:50.060 --> 00:19:53.060
  • CAN WE STAND?
  • 00:19:53.060 --> 00:19:55.090
  • CAN WE STAND?
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:56.200
  • MUSIC
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:58.040
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HERE

  • THE MEMORY TORMENTS YOU.
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:10.020
  • JUST THE RECALLING OF IT
  • 00:20:10.070 --> 00:20:13.070
  • SENDS YOU INTO A RAGE.
  • 00:20:14.120 --> 00:20:17.120
  • YOU KNOW YOU NEED TO FORGIVE
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:18.250
  • THAT PERSON IF YOU'RE EVER

  • TO BE HEALED?

  • FOR CHRIST'S SAKE,"
  • 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:48.000
  • BECAUSE IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE
  • 00:20:48.000 --> 00:20:49.070
  • ANOTHER,
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:51.140
  • GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU.

  • CAN SAY, PASTOR,
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:20:56.220
  • MY RELATIONSHIPS ARE CORRUPTED
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:21:00.040
  • BY BITTERNESS,
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:00.280
  • AND RESENTMENT,
  • 00:21:00.280 --> 00:21:01.200
  • AND REJECTION?

  • BUT THERE'S THAT SOMETHING
  • 00:21:10.000 --> 00:21:12.020
  • IN MY PAST THAT GNAWS
  • 00:21:12.020 --> 00:21:14.060
  • AT MY MIND
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:15.280
