  • BEGINNING AT THE 13TH VERSE.
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:35.220
  • FOR A FEW MOMENTS TONIGHT,
  • 00:02:35.220 --> 00:02:36.220
  • WE DISCUSS THE TOPIC "THERE'S
  • 00:02:36.220 --> 00:02:38.030
  • REALLY NO NEED TO ARGUE."
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:41.260
  • I ASKED YOU THIS MORNING,
  • 00:02:41.260 --> 00:02:42.260
  • AND MANY WOULD AGREE,
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:43.280
  • AND MAYBE BY THE TIME WE'VE

  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:51.040
  • FOUND YOURSELF IN THE MIDST OF
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:53.140
  • A POINTLESS ARGUMENT?
  • 00:02:53.140 --> 00:02:56.000
  • YOU ARE ADAMANTLY DEFENDING A
  • 00:02:56.000 --> 00:02:57.090
  • POSITION FOR WHICH THERE IS NO
  • 00:02:57.090 --> 00:02:59.000
  • WINNER, THERE IS NO LOSER,
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:00.290
  • AND THE OUTCOME OF THE ARGUMENT
  • 00:03:00.290 --> 00:03:03.140
  • IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:04.250
  • ANYTHING.

  • WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT LOVES
  • 00:03:06.240 --> 00:03:09.170
  • TO ARGUE.
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:11.110
  • PEOPLE ENTANGLE THEMSELVES AND
  • 00:03:11.110 --> 00:03:13.020
  • ENGAGE IN DEBATES IN EVERYTHING
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:15.070
  • FROM SPORTS TO POLITICS TO THE
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:17.140
  • CAR YOU DRIVE,
  • 00:03:17.140 --> 00:03:18.250
  • TO THE MUSIC YOU LISTEN TO,
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:20.280
  • TO THE PLACES YOU LIKE TO GO
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:22.080
  • AND EAT.
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:23.220
  • AND THEY CHOOSE SIDES,
  • 00:03:23.220 --> 00:03:25.070
  • AND THEY RAISE THEIR VOICE,
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:26.120
  • AND THEY FOAM AT THE MOUTH.
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:27.260
  • AND ALL FOR WHAT?
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:31.080
  • YOU KNOW THERE ARE TIMES IN THE
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:32.150
  • MIDST OF THESE HEATED EXCHANGES
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:34.150
  • THAT THE VOICE OF REASON WILL
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:36.290
  • EVENTUALLY SPEAK UP AND SOMEONE
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:38.220
  • WILL OFFER THIS LITTLE BIT OF
  • 00:03:38.220 --> 00:03:39.230
  • ADVICE WITH THIS SIMPLE
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:42.010
  • STATEMENT.
  • 00:03:42.010 --> 00:03:42.150
  • THEY SAY,
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:43.050
  • "THERE REALLY IS NO REASON TO
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:46.090
  • ARGUE."
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:46.270
  • HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOURSELF
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:47.250
  • THINKING THOSE WORDS?
  • 00:03:47.250 --> 00:03:49.060
  • THERE'S REALLY JUST NO REASON
  • 00:03:49.060 --> 00:03:51.150
  • FOR ME TO ENGAGE IN THIS
  • 00:03:51.150 --> 00:03:53.050
  • ARGUMENT.
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:54.260
  • I MEAN FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:03:54.260 --> 00:03:55.290
  • AS LONG AS JERRY JONES OWNS THE
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:57.090
  • COWBOYS,
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:03:58.030
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO WIN ANOTHER
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:03:59.030
  • SUPER BOWL.
  • 00:03:59.030 --> 00:03:59.210
  • THERE'S REALLY JUST NO NEED TO
  • 00:03:59.210 --> 00:04:01.290
  • ARGUE.
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:03.040
  • YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN.
  • 00:04:03.040 --> 00:04:04.060
  • SEE Y'ALL ARE ALREADY COMING
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:05.020
  • BACK AT ME LIKE THAT'S
  • 00:04:05.020 --> 00:04:06.130
  • POINTLESS,
  • 00:04:06.130 --> 00:04:07.020
  • BUT MY POINT IS PROVEN,
  • 00:04:07.020 --> 00:04:08.260
  • AND WE'LL JUST MOVE RIGHT
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:09.200
  • ALONG.
  • 00:04:09.200 --> 00:04:10.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:11.080
  • REGARDLESS OF YOUR TOPIC,
  • 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:13.200
  • IN MANY CASES THAT LITTLE
  • 00:04:13.200 --> 00:04:16.030
  • NUGGET OF KNOWLEDGE WILL SAVE
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:17.110
  • YOU A LOT OF TIME AND STRESS.
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:20.170
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE.
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:24.040
  • WHEN IT COMES TO TRUTH,
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:26.040
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE,
  • 00:04:26.040 --> 00:04:28.170
  • BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:29.180
  • WHETHER OR NOT YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:04:29.180 --> 00:04:31.060
  • TRUTH;
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:31.270
  • IT'S STILL TRUE WHETHER YOU
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:33.140
  • BELIEVE IT OR NOT.
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:35.090

  • 00:04:36.240 --> 00:04:38.030
  • AFFIRM OR DENY IT.
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:40.070
  • YOU'RE STUCK HERE UNTIL GRAVITY
  • 00:04:40.070 --> 00:04:41.280
  • DECIDES NO LONGER YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:44.140
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE ABOUT
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:45.110
  • THAT.
  • 00:04:45.110 --> 00:04:46.200
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE ABOUT
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:47.170
  • THE TRUTH IN THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:04:47.170 --> 00:04:50.040
  • THE WORD OF GOD SAYS: BLESSED
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:51.190
  • IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:53.000
  • LORD.
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.110
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE.
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:56.150
  • IN TIMES WHEN THAT DID DESCRIBE
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:58.140
  • AMERICA,
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:04:59.200
  • WE WERE INDEED A LAND SATURATED

  • WITH GOD'S BLESSING.
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:04.060
  • AND EVEN NOW THAT UNFORTUNATELY
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:06.100
  • IT DOES NOT DESCRIBE AMERICA,
  • 00:05:06.130 --> 00:05:09.130
  • WE CAN RECOGNIZE THAT IN OUR
  • 00:05:09.130 --> 00:05:11.110
  • PAST, WE WERE INDEED BLESSED.
  • 00:05:12.110 --> 00:05:15.110
  • AND BECAUSE OF THE BIBLE
  • 00:05:15.110 --> 00:05:16.100
  • PROMISE,
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:17.200
  • WE WERE BLESSED BECAUSE WE WERE
  • 00:05:17.200 --> 00:05:19.120
  • ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:22.110
  • IT WAS JUST AS TRUE IN OUR GOOD
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:24.040
  • TIMES,
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:24.220
  • AS IT IS IN OUR ROUGH TIMES.
  • 00:05:24.220 --> 00:05:27.070
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE ABOUT
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:28.280
  • THIS FACT;
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:29.270
  • GOD CREATED THEM MALE AND
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:32.180
  • FEMALE,
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:34.040
  • AND THAT WE, AS A SOCIETY,
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:36.210
  • SHOULD KNOW BETTER.
  • 00:05:36.210 --> 00:05:38.180
  • BY LOOKING AT ALL OF HISTORY
  • 00:05:38.180 --> 00:05:40.070
  • AND EVERY CIVILIZATION,
  • 00:05:40.070 --> 00:05:41.110
  • THAT BECAUSE GOD CREATED THEM
  • 00:05:41.110 --> 00:05:43.030
  • MALE AND FEMALE,
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:44.160
  • THEN A MAN SHOULD BE MARRIED TO
  • 00:05:44.160 --> 00:05:46.270
  • A WOMAN, PERIOD.
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:51.010
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:54.060
  • THIS IS THE FOUNDATION OF
  • 00:05:54.060 --> 00:05:56.040
  • SOMETHING CALLED "THE FAMILY."
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:57.270
  • AND THE FAMILY IS THE
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:05:58.250
  • FOUNDATION OF EVERY SOCIETY.
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:06:01.050
  • AND YOU CANNOT HAVE A SOCIETY
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:03.020
  • UNLESS YOU HAVE CITIZENS.
  • 00:06:03.020 --> 00:06:04.180
  • AND THE ONLY RELATIONSHIPS THAT
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:06.060
  • PRODUCES CITIZENS IS THE
  • 00:06:06.060 --> 00:06:08.030
  • RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A MAN AND
  • 00:06:08.030 --> 00:06:09.290
  • A WOMAN.
  • 00:06:09.290 --> 00:06:11.030
  • ABOUT THAT,
  • 00:06:11.030 --> 00:06:11.270
  • THERE'S JUST NO NEED TO ARGUE.
  • 00:06:11.270 --> 00:06:14.120
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE THAT
  • 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:16.150
  • ISRAEL IS INDEED THE APPLE OF
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:18.070
  • GOD'S EYE.
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:20.270
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:06:20.270 --> 00:06:21.290
  • ARGUING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:22.200
  • THEY'RE DEBATING IT OVER AND
  • 00:06:22.200 --> 00:06:23.290
  • OVER ON A DAILY BASIS,
  • 00:06:23.290 --> 00:06:25.160
  • TRYING TO GET ACCOLADES FROM
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:27.110
  • GROUPS AROUND THE WORLD FOR
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:29.030
  • BRINGING UP NEW ISSUES IN THIS
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:30.180
  • CAUSE.
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:31.090
  • BUT THE ISSUE HAS BEEN SETTLED
  • 00:06:31.090 --> 00:06:33.150
  • FOR CENTURIES WHEN GOD
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:35.050
  • EXPLAINED TO A MAN BY THE
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:36.180
  • NAME OF ABRAM:
  • 00:06:36.180 --> 00:06:37.230
  • I WILL BE YOUR GOD.
  • 00:06:37.230 --> 00:06:39.070
  • YOU WILL BE MY PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:40.160
  • I WILL BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS

  • YOU,
  • 00:06:42.110 --> 00:06:43.040
  • AND I WILL CURSE THOSE WHO
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:44.070
  • CURSE YOU.
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:45.220
  • OUR STATE DEPARTMENT CAN ARGUE
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:47.060
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:48.140
  • THE UNITED NATIONS CAN DEBATE
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:50.000
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:50.200
  • THE PRESIDENT MAY MEDDLE IN IT.
  • 00:06:50.200 --> 00:06:52.110
  • THE MIDDLE EAST AND RUSSIA MAY
  • 00:06:52.110 --> 00:06:53.280
  • PLOT AND PLAN AGAINST IT.
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:56.210
  • BUT THERE'S NO NEED TO ARGUE
  • 00:06:56.210 --> 00:06:58.010
  • HE WHO KEEPS ISRAEL NEITHER
  • 00:06:58.010 --> 00:06:59.090
  • SLUMBERS NOR SLEEPS.
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:01.160
  • AND HE IS THE GOD WHO HAS NOT
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:02.290
  • CHANGED FROM THIS GENERATION TO
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:04.260
  • THE NEXT.
  • 00:07:04.260 --> 00:07:05.220
  • AND THEREFORE,
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:06.180
  • IF HE HAS SAID IT,
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:08.240
  • THAT SETTLES IT.
  • 00:07:08.240 --> 00:07:11.010
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:25.130
  • THIS CHURCH WOULD BE ABOUT TEN
  • 00:11:25.130 --> 00:11:26.260
  • TIMES THE SIZE THAT IT
  • 00:11:26.260 --> 00:11:28.170
  • CURRENTLY IS,
  • 00:11:28.170 --> 00:11:30.110
  • BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE BUILT A
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:31.190
  • 400.000-SEAT SANCTUARY A
  • 00:11:31.190 --> 00:11:34.080
  • LONG TIME AGO.
  • 00:11:34.080 --> 00:11:36.130
  • I WAS ALWAYS FULL OF "WHY?"
  • 00:11:36.130 --> 00:11:39.120
  • DAD, WHY THIS AND WHY THAT?
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:41.060
  • AND WHEN AND WHY?
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:42.280
  • AND EVENTUALLY,
  • 00:11:42.280 --> 00:11:43.280
  • IN OUR CONVERSATION,
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:45.160
  • HE WOULD EVENTUALLY PULL OUT
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:46.240
  • THE PARENTAL TRUMP CARD AND
  • 00:11:46.240 --> 00:11:48.170
  • JUST SAY, BECAUSE I SAID SO.
  • 00:11:49.130 --> 00:11:52.130
  • HOW MANY OF YOU'VE EVER
  • 00:11:52.130 --> 00:11:53.080
  • UTILIZED THAT ONE ON SOMEONE
  • 00:11:53.080 --> 00:11:54.100
  • SHORTER THAN YOU?
  • 00:11:55.100 --> 00:11:58.100
  • I FIND IT NOW TO BE AN EVER
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:11:59.180
  • PRESENT HELP IN A TIME OF
  • 00:11:59.180 --> 00:12:01.000
  • TROUBLE.
  • 00:12:01.000 --> 00:12:02.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:02.100 --> 00:12:03.200
  • BUT EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:06.170
  • TIMES WHEN YOU'RE TOLD TO STOP
  • 00:12:06.170 --> 00:12:08.090
  • ASKING WHY,
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:09.130
  • IT SEEMS THAT THE CURIOUS
  • 00:12:09.130 --> 00:12:10.240
  • NATURE OF WHO WE ARE IS ALWAYS
  • 00:12:10.240 --> 00:12:12.090
  • ON THE SURFACE.
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:14.040
  • AND THERE'S A LOT OF WHY'S IN
  • 00:12:14.040 --> 00:12:15.240
  • THIS LIFE.
  • 00:12:15.240 --> 00:12:16.170
  • THERE ARE POLITICAL WHY'S.
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:18.200
  • THERE ARE ENVIRONMENT WHY'S.
  • 00:12:18.200 --> 00:12:20.250
  • THERE ARE RELIGIOUS WHY'S.
  • 00:12:20.250 --> 00:12:23.020
  • PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHY THINGS
  • 00:12:23.020 --> 00:12:24.280
  • HAPPEN THE WAY THEY DO.
  • 00:12:25.140 --> 00:12:28.140
  • I ASSURE YOU WHENEVER IT COMES
  • 00:12:28.180 --> 00:12:31.180
  • TO ALL OF THE QUESTIONS IN YOUR
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:32.280
  • LIFE THAT YOU COULD ASK,
  • 00:12:32.280 --> 00:12:35.160
  • THE ONLY QUESTION THAT YOU EVER
  • 00:12:35.160 --> 00:12:36.260
  • NEED TO ANSWER WITH TOTAL
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:38.090
  • CERTAINTY IS WHO DO YOU SAY THE
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:42.150
  • SON OF GOD TRULY IS.
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:45.220
  • YOU CAN BE WRONG ABOUT A LOT OF
  • 00:12:45.220 --> 00:12:48.030
  • THINGS.
  • 00:12:48.030 --> 00:12:49.290
  • BUT ON THIS ONE ISSUE,
  • 00:12:49.290 --> 00:12:51.190
  • THERE IS NO ROOM FOR DEBATE.
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:54.250
  • JESUS CHRIST ASKED HIS
  • 00:12:54.250 --> 00:12:57.040
  • DISCIPLES A QUESTION IN
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:58.240
  • MATTHEW 16.
  • 00:12:58.240 --> 00:13:01.010
  • HE ASKED THEM A QUESTION,
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:02.190
  • AND THE FIRST QUESTION IS
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:04.000
  • TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN THE
  • 00:13:04.000 --> 00:13:05.100
  • SECOND QUESTION.
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:06.210
  • THE FIRST QUESTION IS ONE THAT
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:08.030
  • IF I WERE TO POSE IT TO THIS
  • 00:13:08.030 --> 00:13:09.180
  • ENTIRE AUDIENCE,
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:10.260
  • I WOULD RECEIVE ENDLESS
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:12.290
  • CONVERSATION,
  • 00:13:12.290 --> 00:13:13.270
  • BECAUSE ALL OF US SEEM TO BE
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:15.190
  • FULLY WILLING TO TELL OTHERS
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:17.220
  • WHAT WE KNOW OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:19.080
  • THINK.
  • 00:13:19.080 --> 00:13:21.090
  • HOW MANY OF YOU FOLLOWED THAT?
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:23.240
  • JESUS SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:25.190
  • WHO DO MEN...
  • 00:13:25.190 --> 00:13:27.260
  • WHO DO OTHER PEOPLE SAY THAT I
  • 00:13:27.260 --> 00:13:30.060
  • AM?
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:31.200
  • OH, AND THEY WENT ON AND THEY
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:33.000
  • WENT ON AND THEY WENT ON.
  • 00:13:33.000 --> 00:13:34.060
  • WELL, I KNOW WHAT HE THINKS
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:35.070
  • ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:13:35.070 --> 00:13:35.240
  • AND I KNOW WHAT SHE THINKS
  • 00:13:35.240 --> 00:13:36.210
  • ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:37.110
  • AND I KNOW WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:38.120
  • YOU AT THE LAST MEETING THAT WE
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:39.220
  • HAD.
  • 00:13:39.220 --> 00:13:40.090
  • AND YOU KNOW I READ THIS WEEK'S
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:41.180
  • FAN MAIL, JESUS,
  • 00:13:41.180 --> 00:13:42.220
  • AND YOUR POLL RATINGS ARE JUST
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:44.050
  • SKY HIGH,
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.130
  • COULDN'T BE BETTER.
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:46.290
  • SOME SAY YOU'RE LIKE ELIJAH;
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:48.120
  • OTHERS SAY YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:13:48.120 --> 00:13:49.070
  • JEREMIAH;
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:49.260
  • SOME SAY YOU'RE JOHN THE
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:50.220
  • BAPTIST WHO RECENTLY LOST HIS
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:52.030
  • HEAD, BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE.
  • 00:13:52.030 --> 00:13:54.270
  • I THINK IT'S VERY INTERESTING
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.090
  • THAT WHENEVER YOU CONSIDER THE
  • 00:13:56.090 --> 00:13:57.130
  • FIRST QUESTION THAT CHRIST
  • 00:13:57.130 --> 00:13:58.160
  • ASKED,
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:13:59.040
  • NOT ONLY DOES THE BIBLE SAY
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:00.230
  • THAT ALL OF THE DISCIPLES
  • 00:14:00.230 --> 00:14:02.080
  • ENGAGED IN THE ANSWER,
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:04.060
  • BUT IT ALSO GIVES US THIS VERY
  • 00:14:04.060 --> 00:14:06.130
  • CLEAR PICTURE.
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:07.130
  • THEY ONLY TOLD JESUS HALF OF
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:09.130
  • THE STORY,
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:11.190
  • BECAUSE JESUS, EVERYWHERE HE
  • 00:14:11.190 --> 00:14:13.130
  • WENT,
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:14.080
  • CREATED ONE OF TWO THINGS,
  • 00:14:14.080 --> 00:14:16.180
  • INSTANT LOVE OR INSTANT HATE.
  • 00:14:17.120 --> 00:14:20.120
  • WHEN HE WEPT INTO A TOWN AND HE
  • 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:21.200
  • PERFORMED A MIRACLE,
  • 00:14:21.200 --> 00:14:22.260
  • FOR THOSE WHOSE LIVES HE
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:24.030
  • CHANGED,
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:24.280
  • THEY WERE ETERNALLY GOING TO
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:26.150
  • FOLLOW HIM.
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:28.180
  • BUT FOR THOSE THAT HE
  • 00:14:28.180 --> 00:14:29.120
  • DISRUPTED,
  • 00:14:29.120 --> 00:14:30.050
  • THEY WERE TRYING TO FIND A WAY
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:31.120
  • TO NAIL HIM TO A CROSS.
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:34.030
  • JESUS ASKED HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:35.100
  • WHO DO MEN SAY THAT I AM?
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:37.010
  • AND THEY SAID, OH, IT'S GREAT,
  • 00:14:37.010 --> 00:14:38.090
  • GREAT, GREAT, GREAT, GREAT,
  • 00:14:38.090 --> 00:14:39.080
  • GREAT, GREAT.
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:40.200
  • DON'T TELL HIM ABOUT THE
  • 00:14:40.200 --> 00:14:41.180
  • PHARISEES.
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:42.110
  • OKAY.
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:43.040
  • IT MAKES HIM UPSET.
  • 00:14:44.240 --> 00:14:47.240
  • NOW WE KNOW FROM HAVING THE
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.020
  • PRIVILEGE OF SCRIPTURE IN OUR
  • 00:14:49.020 --> 00:14:50.060
  • HANDS THAT JESUS ALREADY KNEW
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:52.010
  • WHAT THE PHARISEES WERE
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:53.000
  • PLANNING.
  • 00:14:53.000 --> 00:14:53.180
  • AND HE DIDN'T NEED TO BE TOLD
  • 00:14:53.180 --> 00:14:54.260
  • WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:14:54.260 --> 00:14:56.230
  • BUT I THINK IT'S VERY TELLING
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:14:57.260
  • ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP THE
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:14:59.080
  • DISCIPLES HAD WITH JESUS.
  • 00:14:59.080 --> 00:15:00.200
  • THEY WERE AFRAID THAT BAD NEWS
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:02.280
  • WAS GOING TO CHANGE HIS MOOD.
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:05.260
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT WHENEVER
  • 00:15:05.260 --> 00:15:07.020
  • IT COMES TO TRUE FRIENDS,
  • 00:15:07.020 --> 00:15:08.160
  • TRUE FRIENDS WILL TELL YOU THE
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:10.050
  • WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:12.030
  • TRUTH,
  • 00:15:12.030 --> 00:15:12.200
  • BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THE LOVE
  • 00:15:12.200 --> 00:15:13.240
  • OF YOUR FRIENDSHIP RUNS DEEPER
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:15.230
  • THAN THE OPINIONS OF OTHER
  • 00:15:15.230 --> 00:15:16.290
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:18.190
  • IF YOU REALLY LOVE SOMEBODY,
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:20.080
  • YOU'RE NOT AFRAID TO TELL THEM
  • 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:22.070
  • WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR,
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.100
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS: THE
  • 00:15:23.100 --> 00:15:24.180
  • WOUNDS OF A FRIEND ARE
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:26.250
  • FAITHFUL.
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:29.040
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
  • 00:15:29.040 --> 00:15:29.250
  • JESUS CHRIST IS A FRIEND WHO
  • 00:15:29.250 --> 00:15:31.040
  • STICKS CLOSER THAN A BROTHER.
  • 00:15:31.040 --> 00:15:33.060
  • AND WHILE WE'RE ON THE TOPIC
  • 00:15:33.060 --> 00:15:34.000
  • OF FRIENDS,
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:34.170
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT AT SOME
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:35.170
  • POINT IN TIME, JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:37.220
  • YOUR FRIEND THAT STICKS CLOSER
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:39.030
  • THAN A BROTHER,
  • 00:15:39.030 --> 00:15:39.210
  • IS GOING TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH
  • 00:15:39.210 --> 00:15:41.070
  • THROUGH HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:42.110
  • THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:43.180
  • AND WHEN HE DOES,
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:44.180
  • IT MAY WOUND YOU.
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:47.070
  • BUT BECAUSE HE'S YOUR FRIEND
  • 00:15:47.070 --> 00:15:48.060
  • AND HE LOVES YOU,
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:50.000
  • HIS WOUNDS ARE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:54.070
  • VERSE 14,
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:55.280
  • IT SAYS: AND THEY SAID --
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:58.010
  • THEY ALL PITCHED IN WITH THIS
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:15:59.130
  • ANSWER.
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:01.030
  • THEY SAID,
  • 00:16:01.030 --> 00:16:01.200
  • YOU KNOW WE THINK THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:03.070
  • DOING REALLY GOOD,
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:04.020
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE HAD A
  • 00:16:04.020 --> 00:16:05.030
  • LOT OF GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.100
  • YOU.
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:08.070
  • I ASSURE YOU THAT THERE ARE A
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:09.170
  • LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM,
  • 00:16:09.170 --> 00:16:10.290
  • WHO COULD SPEAK WITH A LOT OF
  • 00:16:10.290 --> 00:16:12.030
  • CONFIDENCE ABOUT WHAT OTHER
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:13.170
  • PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:14.170
  • JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:16.180
  • THEY WOULD TELL ME, WELL,
  • 00:16:16.180 --> 00:16:17.150
  • I KNOW WHO HE WAS TO MY
  • 00:16:17.150 --> 00:16:19.000
  • GRANDMOTHER,
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:19.200
  • BECAUSE THAT'S ALL SHE EVER
  • 00:16:19.200 --> 00:16:21.040
  • TALKED ABOUT.
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:21.240
  • OR I KNOW WHAT AUNT SUE SAID
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.140
  • ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:16:23.140 --> 00:16:24.070
  • BECAUSE SHE CALLED UPON HIM
  • 00:16:24.070 --> 00:16:25.240
  • CONSTANTLY.
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:26.130
  • I KNOW WHAT THE PREACHER SAID
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:27.230
  • ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:28.150
  • BECAUSE THAT'S ALL HE EVER
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:29.240
  • PREACHED ABOUT.
  • 00:16:29.240 --> 00:16:30.290
  • BUT THE REALITY OF THE
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:31.270
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT YOU HAVE WITH
  • 00:16:31.270 --> 00:16:33.130
  • THE LORD IS NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:34.260
  • BASED ON WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO
  • 00:16:34.260 --> 00:16:36.190
  • SAY ABOUT HIM,
  • 00:16:36.190 --> 00:16:37.250
  • BUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:40.090
  • HIM.
  • 00:16:40.090 --> 00:16:42.240
  • JESUS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED UP
  • 00:16:42.240 --> 00:16:44.210
  • THE FIRST QUESTION WITH A
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:46.080
  • SECOND ONE.
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:48.180
  • HE SAID: WHO DO "YOU"
  • 00:16:49.120 --> 00:16:52.120
  • SAY THAT I AM?
  • 00:16:52.270 --> 00:16:55.270
  • AND SUDDENLY,
  • 00:16:55.270 --> 00:16:58.260
  • THE WILLING TWELVE BECOME THE
  • 00:16:58.260 --> 00:17:00.250
  • TIMID ELEVEN.
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:05.040
  • YOU WANT TO ANSWER THIS ONE?
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:06.000
  • OH, NO.
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:06.170
  • YOU GO AHEAD.
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:07.110
  • I MEAN I'VE TALKED ENOUGH.
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:09.020
  • YOU SHOULD REALLY SPEAK UP.
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:14.090
  • AND OUT OF ALL THAT WERE
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.210
  • WILLING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE
  • 00:17:15.210 --> 00:17:16.240
  • FIRST CONVERSATION,
  • 00:17:16.240 --> 00:17:17.290
  • ONLY ONE HAS THE COURAGE TO SAY
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:20.040
  • ANYTHING IN THE SECOND.
  • 00:17:21.090 --> 00:17:24.090
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS: SIMON
  • 00:17:24.090 --> 00:17:26.100
  • PETER --
  • 00:17:26.100 --> 00:17:27.260
  • NOW I THINK IT'S INTERESTING
  • 00:17:27.260 --> 00:17:28.250
  • THAT IT USED BOTH OF HIS NAMES
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:30.260
  • HERE.
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:32.050
  • "SIMON,"
  • 00:17:32.050 --> 00:17:32.250
  • MEANING THE ONE WHO IS
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:35.090
  • INCONSISTENT;
  • 00:17:35.090 --> 00:17:36.100
  • AND "PETER,"
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:37.020
  • MEANING THE ONE WHO IS THE
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:38.040
  • ROCK.
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:40.120
  • THIS BASICALLY IS SAYING THAT
  • 00:17:40.120 --> 00:17:41.190
  • WITH ALL OF HIS HEART, SOUL,
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:42.230
  • MIND AND BODY,
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:45.280
  • SIMON PETER SPEAKS UP.
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:48.250
  • AND HE SAYS: I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:51.150
  • YOU ARE THE CHRIST.
  • 00:17:51.150 --> 00:17:53.210
  • YOU ARE THE SON OF THE LIVING
  • 00:17:54.010 --> 00:17:57.010
  • GOD.
  • 00:17:57.010 --> 00:17:59.020
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PETER'S
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:00.090
  • LIFE,
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:02.040
  • HE SPOKE UNDER THE POWER OF THE
  • 00:18:02.040 --> 00:18:04.070
  • HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:06.080
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE,
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:07.290
  • THE ANOINTING EXPRESSED
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:09.170
  • SOMETHING FROM HIS SOUL THAT HE
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:11.280
  • HAD NO POWER IN.
  • 00:18:11.280 --> 00:18:14.240
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THERE ARE
  • 00:18:14.240 --> 00:18:15.280
  • TIMES IN YOUR LIFE WHEN WHAT
  • 00:18:15.280 --> 00:18:17.070
  • YOU SAY YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:19.010
  • WITH,
  • 00:18:19.010 --> 00:18:19.190
  • GOD JUST USED YOU AS A VOCAL
  • 00:18:19.190 --> 00:18:21.270
  • PIECE TO GET HIS MESSAGE OUT.
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:25.040
  • PETER SAID: THOU ART THE
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:27.030
  • CHRIST,
  • 00:18:27.030 --> 00:18:28.080
  • THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:32.160
  • WHY WOULD HE SAY SUCH A THING?
  • 00:18:32.160 --> 00:18:34.290
  • BECAUSE HE HAD SEEN WHAT JESUS
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:36.240
  • DID AND HE KNEW THAT NO ONE
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:40.140
  • COULD HAVE DONE THAT UNLESS
  • 00:18:40.140 --> 00:18:42.110
  • THEY HAD THE POWER OF GOD IN
  • 00:18:42.110 --> 00:18:44.140
  • THEM.
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:45.280
  • HE EXPERIENCED ENOUGH OF HIS
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:48.070
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:50.060
  • TO KNOW THAT JESUS KNEW THINGS
  • 00:18:50.100 --> 00:18:53.100
  • THAT NO ONE ELSE COULD KNOW
  • 00:18:53.100 --> 00:18:55.090
  • UNLESS THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD WAS
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:57.170
  • IN THEM.
  • 00:18:57.170 --> 00:18:58.260
  • HE HAD HEARD JESUS SAY THINGS
  • 00:18:58.260 --> 00:19:01.110
  • AND HE KNEW THAT NO ONE COULD
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:02.230
  • SAY WHAT HE SAID UNLESS HE HAD
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:05.050
  • A POWER THAT WAS NOT OF THIS
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:06.190
  • EARTH.
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:08.010
  • BOTTOM LINE,
  • 00:19:08.010 --> 00:19:08.220
  • JESUS WAS AROUND PETER ENOUGH
  • 00:19:08.220 --> 00:19:10.260
  • THAT WHAT PETER SAID TO THE
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:12.090
  • DISCIPLES AND TO JESUS IN THAT
  • 00:19:12.090 --> 00:19:14.040
  • MOMENT WAS,
  • 00:19:14.040 --> 00:19:15.090
  • I DON'T SEE THE CHARACTER OF
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:17.100
  • ANOTHER MAN IN YOU.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:19.190
  • I DON'T SEE THE CHARACTER OF
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:21.070
  • JOSEPH, THE CARPENTER;
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:23.020
  • OR MARY FROM NAZARETH IN YOU.
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:25.200
  • I SEE ONLY THE CHARACTER OF GOD
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:28.030
  • ALMIGHTY IN YOU.
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:31.230
  • AS HE IS ALL POWERFUL,
  • 00:19:31.230 --> 00:19:33.090
  • I SEE YOU AS ALL POWERFUL.
  • 00:19:33.100 --> 00:19:36.100
  • AS HE IS ALL KNOWING,
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:37.200
  • I SEE YOU AS ALL KNOWING.
  • 00:19:37.200 --> 00:19:40.150
  • AS HE IS THE ONE WHO CAN MAKE A
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:42.110
  • WAY,
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:42.280
  • I SEE YOU AS THE ONE WHO WILL
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:46.030
  • MAKE A WAY.
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:48.060
  • YOU SEE THERE HAS TO COME A
  • 00:19:48.060 --> 00:19:49.020
  • POINT IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:50.230
  • JESUS CHRIST WHERE WE DO NOT
  • 00:19:50.230 --> 00:19:53.000
  • CONSIDER WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO
  • 00:19:53.000 --> 00:19:54.130
  • THINK ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:55.170
  • BUT WE SAY OF OURSELVES,
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:57.150
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT I HAVE
  • 00:19:57.150 --> 00:19:59.000
  • EXPERIENCED,
  • 00:19:59.000 --> 00:19:59.270
  • AND BECAUSE OF WHAT I HAVE
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:01.130
  • SEEN,
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:02.040
  • AND BECAUSE OF WHAT I KNOW TO
  • 00:20:02.040 --> 00:20:04.010
  • BE TRUE,
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:04.230
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THE OTHERS
  • 00:20:04.230 --> 00:20:06.140
  • THINK ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:20:06.140 --> 00:20:07.180
  • I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:10.020
  • CHRIST,
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:11.190
  • THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:20:12.020 --> 00:20:15.020
  • BECAUSE OF WHO I WAS BEFORE I
  • 00:20:15.020 --> 00:20:16.270
  • MET YOU AND WHO I AM NOW THAT
  • 00:20:16.270 --> 00:20:19.020
  • I'M YOURS,
  • 00:20:19.020 --> 00:20:21.010
  • BECAUSE OF THE CONDITION THAT
  • 00:20:21.010 --> 00:20:22.290
  • MY FAMILY WERE IN BEFORE I
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:25.060
  • KNELT AT THE ALTAR AND GAVE MY
  • 00:20:25.060 --> 00:20:26.290
  • HEART TO YOU,
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:27.260
  • AND NOW HOW YOU'VE RESTORED
  • 00:20:27.260 --> 00:20:29.180
  • WHAT THE DEVIL TRIED TO
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:30.170
  • DESTROY.
  • 00:20:30.170 --> 00:20:32.100
  • BECAUSE OF THE DIAGNOSIS THAT I
  • 00:20:32.100 --> 00:20:34.050
  • RECEIVED,
  • 00:20:34.050 --> 00:20:34.280
  • AND EVERYONE ON EARTH SAID THAT
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:36.110
  • I WAS DONE FOR,
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:37.230
  • BUT BECAUSE YOU INVADED MY
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:39.270
  • DISEASE AND SET ME FREE AND
  • 00:20:39.270 --> 00:20:41.250
  • HEALED ME,
  • 00:20:41.250 --> 00:20:44.200
  • I DON'T WONDER WHETHER OR NOT
  • 00:20:44.200 --> 00:20:47.000
  • YOU'RE A HEALER OR A WAY MAKER
  • 00:20:47.000 --> 00:20:49.020
  • OR A SAVIOR OR A REDEEMER OR A
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:51.140
  • PROVIDER.
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:52.160
  • I KNOW YOU ARE THE SON OF THE
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:57.060
  • LIVING GOD.
  • 00:20:57.060 --> 00:20:59.210
  • AND ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:20:59.210 --> 00:21:02.130
  • THERE IS NO NEED TO ARGUE.
  • 00:21:04.080 --> 00:21:07.080
  • YOU SEE IF WE CAN GET THAT ONE
  • 00:21:07.080 --> 00:21:09.040
  • QUESTION RIGHT,
  • 00:21:09.040 --> 00:21:11.260
  • THEN WE WILL SETTLE EVERY OTHER
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:13.070
  • ARGUMENT THAT WE WILL EVER HAVE
  • 00:21:13.070 --> 00:21:15.140
  • IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:18.040
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE TELLS US OUT
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:19.230
  • OF ALL OF THE PROMISES THAT WE
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:21.020
  • FIND IN THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:22.120
  • ALL OF THEM ARE YES AND AMEN IN
  • 00:21:22.160 --> 00:21:25.160
  • CHRIST JESUS,
  • 00:21:25.160 --> 00:21:28.050
  • WHICH MEANS IF WE DO NOT
  • 00:21:28.050 --> 00:21:29.210
  • BELIEVE THAT HE IS THE SON OF
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:30.280
  • GOD,
  • 00:21:30.280 --> 00:21:31.140
  • GUESS HOW MANY OF THE PROMISES
  • 00:21:31.140 --> 00:21:32.230
  • YOU GET?
  • 00:21:32.230 --> 00:21:34.230
  • ZERO.
  • 00:21:34.230 --> 00:21:36.220
  • BUT WHEN YOU DO BELIEVE HE IS
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:38.110
  • THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:39.130
  • HOW MANY DO YOU RECEIVE?
  • 00:21:39.130 --> 00:21:40.280
  • ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:21:40.280 --> 00:21:41.280
  • IT SAYS, ALL.
  • 00:21:43.160 --> 00:21:46.160
  • SO IF WE CAN SETTLE THE DEBATE
  • 00:21:46.160 --> 00:21:48.000
  • FOR OURSELVES TONIGHT,
  • 00:21:48.000 --> 00:21:49.150
  • "WHO DO YOU SAY THAT HE IS,"
  • 00:21:50.020 --> 00:21:53.020
  • THEN YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF IN
  • 00:21:53.020 --> 00:21:54.080
  • A SITUATION WHERE EVERY OTHER
  • 00:21:54.080 --> 00:21:56.090
  • QUESTION IN LIFE WILL BE
  • 00:21:56.090 --> 00:21:58.100
  • ANSWERED.
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:22:00.100
  • AND THERE WILL NO LONGER BE A
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:01.140
  • NEED TO ARGUE.
  • 00:22:01.140 --> 00:22:02.090
  • OH, INDEED PEOPLE WILL WANT TO
  • 00:22:02.090 --> 00:22:03.190
  • ARGUE WITH YOU.
  • 00:22:03.190 --> 00:22:05.160
  • BUT WHEN THEY DO,
  • 00:22:05.160 --> 00:22:06.060
  • YOU JUST SMILE AND SAY, HEY,
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:07.150
  • THERE'S REALLY NO NEED TO
  • 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:08.100
  • ARGUE.
  • 00:22:08.100 --> 00:22:10.040
  • HE IS THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:11.210
  • I'M REDEEMED BY HIS GRACE
  • 00:22:11.210 --> 00:22:13.100
  • DIVINE.
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:13.290
  • WHATEVER HE SAYS I CAN HAVE,
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:15.220
  • I CAN HAVE.
  • 00:22:15.220 --> 00:22:16.130
  • WHATEVER HE SAYS I CAN DO,
  • 00:22:16.130 --> 00:22:17.290
  • I CAN DO.
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:18.220
  • WHATEVER HE SAYS I CAN BE,
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:20.080
  • I CAN BE.
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:21.060
  • AND IF THAT BOTHERS YOU,
  • 00:22:21.060 --> 00:22:23.150
  • AS SPIRITUALLY AS I CAN SAY
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:24.140
  • IT...
  • 00:22:24.140 --> 00:22:25.020
  • (SPEWING)
  • 00:22:25.030 --> 00:22:28.030
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:31.000 --> 00:22:34.000
  • YOU SAY, WELL,
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:38.060
  • I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO KNOW
  • 00:22:38.060 --> 00:22:39.040
  • HOW THAT WORKS PASTOR MATT.
  • 00:22:39.040 --> 00:22:40.100
  • WELL, I'LL TELL YOU.
  • 00:22:40.100 --> 00:22:41.270
  • HOW MANY SINGLE FOLKS DO WE
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:43.040
  • HAVE HERE IN THE ROOM?
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:45.000
  • YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:22:45.000 --> 00:22:47.270
  • IF YOU'RE MARRIED AND YOUR
  • 00:22:47.270 --> 00:22:48.170
  • HAND'S UP, YOU'RE DEAD.
  • 00:22:48.170 --> 00:22:50.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:51.130
  • SINGLE PEOPLE ALWAYS COME TO
  • 00:22:51.130 --> 00:22:54.130
  • MY OFFICE,
  • 00:22:54.130 --> 00:22:55.000
  • AND THEY ARE PRAYING.
