  • HE HAD, BACK THEN,30 BILLION DOLLARS.
  • 00:02:00.737 --> 00:02:02.805

  • 00:02:02.839 --> 00:02:05.175
  • DOLLARS.IN THE 80S, THE DEMAND WAS SO

  • COCAINE TO THE U.S. EACHDAY.
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:20.423
  • THAT'S THE EQUIVALENT OF TWOAFRICAN ELEPHANTS - OF COCAINE.
  • 00:02:20.456 --> 00:02:24.394
  • DURING THIS ZENITH OF THE DRUGTRADE, HE WAS MAKING 60 MILLION

  • DOLLARS A DAY IN COCAINE--SELLING COCAINE.

  • TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH ONRUBBER BANDS TO BUNDLE THE CASH.

  • FIGURED HE LOST 2 MILLIONDOLLARS A YEAR TO RATS THAT

  • NIBBLED AWAY - ANDMOLD - MOLDING MONEY.
  • 00:02:56.526 --> 00:03:01.264
  • HE OWNED 5.000 ACRES OF LANDNEAR A SMALL COLOMBIAN TOWN
  • 00:03:01.297 --> 00:03:04.634
  • WHERE HE BUILT A LITTLE UTOPIA- 20-ROOM MANSION - WHERE HE'D
  • 00:03:04.667 --> 00:03:07.804
  • INVITE - HE'D JUST PAY AND HE'DHAVE GREAT MUSICIANS AND PEOPLE
  • 00:03:07.837 --> 00:03:10.106
  • FROM AROUND THE WORLD COMING.HE HAD HIS OWN BULL RING - HIS
  • 00:03:10.139 --> 00:03:12.875
  • OWN ZOO WITH HIPPOS, GIRAFFES,AND ELEPHANTS. IN ALL, IT'S SAID
  • 00:03:12.909 --> 00:03:19.048
  • THAT HE'S RESPONSIBLE FORAPPROXIMATELY 4.000 DEATHS,
  • 00:03:19.082 --> 00:03:22.719
  • INCLUDING JUDGES AND A COLOMBIANPRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.
  • 00:03:22.752 --> 00:03:27.090
  • BUT HE WAS NEVER SATISFIED WITHALL THAT MONEY AND THAT POWER.
  • 00:03:27.123 --> 00:03:30.693
  • HE WANTED TO BELOVED BY THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:30.727 --> 00:03:32.395
  • HE WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT OFTHE COUNTRY, IF YOU CAN IMAGINE
  • 00:03:32.428 --> 00:03:34.597
  • THAT.AND HE STARTED GIVING MONEY TO
  • 00:03:34.631 --> 00:03:37.867
  • ALL THESE POOR VILLAGES AND FORSCHOOLS AND PUBLIC WORKS.
  • 00:03:37.900 --> 00:03:41.704
  • HE COULDN'T SPEND HISMONEY FAST ENOUGH.
  • 00:03:41.738 --> 00:03:43.406
  • AND THEY ALL LOVED HIM.THEY THOUGHT HE WAS A HERO - NOT
  • 00:03:43.439 --> 00:03:45.475
  • ALL - MANY PEOPLE LOVED HIM.HE RAN FOR CONGRESS AND
  • 00:03:45.508 --> 00:03:48.044
  • GOT ELECTED, BUT HE WASN'TSATISFIED.
  • 00:03:48.077 --> 00:03:51.547
  • HE WANTED MORE POWER AND HEWANTED MORE AND HE WANTED MORE
  • 00:03:51.581 --> 00:03:54.217
  • AND WHEN SOME OF THE OTHERPEOPLE IN POLITICS STARTED TO
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:56.819
  • INVESTIGATE HIM MORECAREFULLY, HE HAD THEM KILLED.
  • 00:03:56.853 --> 00:04:03.426
  • AND HE HAD A SAYING, 'MONEY -SILVER - OR DO YOU WANT BULLETS
  • 00:04:03.459 --> 00:04:08.298
  • - LEAD?' AND HE GAVE EVERYBODYTHE CHOICE.
  • 00:04:08.331 --> 00:04:11.601
  • HE SAYS, 'I'LL EITHER PAY YOUAND YOU CAN COOPERATE AND GO
  • 00:04:11.634 --> 00:04:13.770
  • ALONG WITH ME, OR YOU'RE DEAD.'AND WHEN JUDGES BEGAN TO
  • 00:04:13.803 --> 00:04:17.707
  • INVESTIGATE HIM OR PEOPLE WEREGOING TO TESTIFY AGAINST HIM,
  • 00:04:17.740 --> 00:04:20.943
  • SUDDENLY THEY ENDED UP DYING.WHEN SOMEONE ELSE WAS RUNNING
  • 00:04:20.977 --> 00:04:24.247
  • AGAINST HIM, THEY WEREASSASSINATED.
  • 00:04:24.280 --> 00:04:27.417
  • AND - 4.000 MURDERS - WASN'THAPPY - MORE, MORE, MORE.
  • 00:04:27.450 --> 00:04:33.256
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, IT REMINDS USOF THE CHARACTER THAT PROBABLY
  • 00:04:33.289 --> 00:04:35.258
  • INSPIRED PEOPLE LIKE ESCOBAR -SOME OF THESE INDIVIDUALS LIKE
  • 00:04:35.291 --> 00:04:40.063
  • HITLER AND STALIN THAT JUST ARE- HAVE AN INSATIABLE DESIRE TO
  • 00:04:40.096 --> 00:04:44.734
  • BE THE GREATEST, TO HAVE MOREPOWER, TO HAVE MORE MONEY.
  • 00:04:44.767 --> 00:04:48.838
  • AND IT REMINDS US ABOUT THEORIGIN OF THAT ARCH FIEND THAT
  • 00:04:48.871 --> 00:04:54.744
  • WE READ ABOUT IN THE BIBLE.DEALING WITH THE VILLAIN OF
  • 00:04:54.777 --> 00:04:58.214
  • REVELATION - IN FACT, HE'S THEVILLAIN OF THE WHOLE BIBLE -
  • 00:04:58.247 --> 00:05:02.118
  • BETTER KNOWN AS THE DEVIL.FIRST QUESTION WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:05:02.151 --> 00:05:06.022
  • ASK TONIGHT IS, 'WITH WHOM DIDSIN ORIGINATE?
  • 00:05:06.055 --> 00:05:09.625
  • YOU KNOW, JESUS CAME TOSAVE US FROM OUR SINS.
  • 00:05:09.659 --> 00:05:11.561
  • WHY IS THERE SIN IN THE WORLD?IF GOD MADE EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:11.594 --> 00:05:14.063
  • GOOD, WHY DO WE SIN?WHERE DID SIN COME FROM?
  • 00:05:14.097 --> 00:05:17.600
  • PEOPLE SOMETIMES SAY,'WHO HAD THE FIRST COLD?'
  • 00:05:17.633 --> 00:05:20.870
  • 'WHO HAD THE FIRSTCASE OF AIDS?'
  • 00:05:20.903 --> 00:05:23.840
  • WHERE DO THESE THINGS COME FROM?IT'S LIKE A MYSTERY.
  • 00:05:23.873 --> 00:05:26.042
  • WELL, THE BIBLE GIVESUS THESE ANSWERS.
  • 00:05:26.075 --> 00:05:28.878
  • YOU CAN READ IN REVELATION 12,VERSE 9 - IT REFERS TO HIM AS
  • 00:05:28.911 --> 00:05:32.348
  • "THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLEDTHE DEVIL AND SATAN."
  • 00:05:32.382 --> 00:05:36.185
  • AND SO, HERE HE IS CALLED 'THESERPENT', HE'S CALLED 'THE
  • 00:05:36.219 --> 00:05:38.921
  • DEVIL,' HE CALLED 'SATAN,' ANDHE'S ALSO CALLED 'THE DRAGON.'
  • 00:05:38.955 --> 00:05:42.658
  • AND SO, SATAN ORIGINATED,BELIEVE IT OR NOT, NOT HERE ON
  • 00:05:42.692 --> 00:05:46.696
  • EARTH, BUT UP IN HEAVEN.THE BIBLE SAYS 'THE DEVIL
  • 00:05:46.729 --> 00:05:50.700
  • SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.'SIN ORIGINATED WITH SATAN.
  • 00:05:50.733 --> 00:05:55.872
  • SATAN IS THAT ARCH FIEND.HE IS VERY REAL.
  • 00:05:55.905 --> 00:05:59.041
  • I BELIEVE THAT NOT ONLY DOESGOD SEND GOOD ANGELS TO OUR
  • 00:05:59.075 --> 00:06:03.279
  • MEETINGS, I BELIEVE THE DEVILTRIES TO SEND REPRESENTATIVES TO
  • 00:06:03.312 --> 00:06:06.149
  • DISTRACT AND KEEP PEOPLEFROM HEARING THE WORD.
  • 00:06:06.182 --> 00:06:08.951
  • THERE ARE BATTLESTHAT ARE RAGING.
  • 00:06:08.985 --> 00:06:10.920
  • PAUL TALKS ABOUT US NOTWRESTLING AGAINST FLESH AND
  • 00:06:10.953 --> 00:06:13.556
  • BLOOD, BUT AGAINSTPRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS,
  • 00:06:13.589 --> 00:06:15.992
  • SPIRITUAL FORCES OFWICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.
  • 00:06:16.025 --> 00:06:19.128
  • THERE IS A GOD.THERE ARE GOOD ANGELS.
  • 00:06:19.162 --> 00:06:22.465
  • AND THERE IS A DEVIL - THEREIS AN EVIL POWER IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:22.498 --> 00:06:25.768
  • I THINK, AS YOU LOOK AT WHAT'SHAPPENED IN HISTORY, YOU'D HAVE
  • 00:06:25.802 --> 00:06:29.939
  • TO SAY THAT THEREIS EVIL.
  • 00:06:29.972 --> 00:06:32.074
  • YOU LOOK AT WHAT SOME TERRORISTSDO OR THEY PUT A PERSON IN A
  • 00:06:32.108 --> 00:06:34.377
  • CAGE AND DOUSE THEM WITHGASOLINE AND VIDEOTAPE AS THEY
  • 00:06:34.410 --> 00:06:37.914
  • SET THEM ON FIRE - THATIS JUST INCARNATE EVIL.
  • 00:06:37.947 --> 00:06:42.418
  • ONE OF THE REASONS THAT PEOPLETURN TO GOD IS, THEY SAY, 'YOU
  • 00:06:42.452 --> 00:06:44.387
  • KNOW, I WASN'T SO SURE ABOUTGOD, BUT WHEN I BECAME CONVINCED
  • 00:06:44.420 --> 00:06:47.056
  • THAT THERE WAS ABSOLUTE EVIL,THEN I THOUGHT, 'THERE MUST BE
  • 00:06:47.089 --> 00:06:50.660
  • GOOD. THERE MUST BE GOD.'-AMEN.
  • 00:06:50.693 --> 00:06:53.329
  • -AND WE CAN CERTAINLY SEE THEEVIDENCE FOR EVIL IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:53.362 --> 00:06:56.299
  • SO WHAT WAS SATAN'SNAME BEFORE HE SINNED?
  • 00:06:56.332 --> 00:06:59.469
  • AND WHERE WAS HELIVING AT THAT TIME?
  • 00:06:59.502 --> 00:07:02.038
  • TWO OF THE PRINCIPLE PASSAGES INTHE OLD TESTAMENT THAT TELL US
  • 00:07:02.071 --> 00:07:05.441
  • ABOUT THE DEVIL - YOU CAN FIND ALITTLE BIT ABOUT HIM, OF COURSE,
  • 00:07:05.475 --> 00:07:07.944
  • IN GENESIS, BUT HE'SNOT CALLED BY NAME.
  • 00:07:07.977 --> 00:07:10.713
  • YOU GO TO ISAIAH 14 AND ISAIAHBEGINS WITH A PROPHECY ABOUT THE
  • 00:07:10.746 --> 00:07:15.585
  • KING OF BABYLON AND THEN HETRANSITIONS INTO THE POWER
  • 00:07:15.618 --> 00:07:18.888
  • BEHIND THAT WICKED KING."HOW YOU ARE FALLEN FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:07:18.921 --> 00:07:24.293
  • O LUCIFER, SON OF THE MORNING!"- THE WORD 'LUCIFER' - IT MEANS
  • 00:07:24.327 --> 00:07:26.829
  • 'LIGHT BEARER' - IT'S REALLY ALATIN WORD. IN HEBREW IT'S MORE
  • 00:07:26.863 --> 00:07:29.432
  • LIKE 'HELIEL' - IT MEANS 'THEMORNING STAR' - "HOW YOU ARE CUT
  • 00:07:29.465 --> 00:07:33.002
  • DOWN TO THE GROUND, YOU WHOWEAKENED THE NATIONS!
  • 00:07:33.035 --> 00:07:35.671
  • FOR YOU SAID IN YOUR HEART, 'IWILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN, I WILL
  • 00:07:35.705 --> 00:07:39.375
  • EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARSOF GOD; I WILL ALSO SIT ON THE
  • 00:07:39.408 --> 00:07:43.312
  • MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION ON THEFARTHEST SIDES OF THE NORTH.
  • 00:07:43.346 --> 00:07:46.215
  • I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTSOF THE CLOUDS, I WILL BE LIKE
  • 00:07:46.249 --> 00:07:49.752
  • THE MOST HIGH.' YOU CAN TELLTHAT HE HAD 'I' PROBLEMS.
  • 00:07:49.785 --> 00:07:54.123
  • (LAUGHTER) I, I, I - YOU KNOW,I'VE HEARD THAT PEOPLE IN MENTAL
  • 00:07:54.156 --> 00:07:59.061
  • INSTITUTIONS USE THE WORDS 'I,''ME,' 'MY,' 'MINE,' AND 'MYSELF'
  • 00:07:59.095 --> 00:08:03.599
  • FIVE TIMES MORE THAN PEOPLETHAT ARE REGARDED AS SANE.
  • 00:08:03.633 --> 00:08:07.837
  • SELFISHNESS WILL MAKE YOUCRAZY.
  • 00:08:07.870 --> 00:08:11.774
  • AND THE VERY IDEA THAT THECREATURE COULD REBEL AGAINST THE
  • 00:08:11.807 --> 00:08:15.278
  • CREATOR, TO YOU AND I IT SOUNDSINSANE BUT, SOMEHOW, HE THOUGHT
  • 00:08:15.311 --> 00:08:18.681
  • HE COULD HAVE ENOUGHPOWER TO OVERTHROW GOD.
  • 00:08:18.714 --> 00:08:21.784
  • AND, DON'T FORGET, LUCIFER WASVERY POWERFUL - "YOU WERE THE
  • 00:08:21.817 --> 00:08:25.855
  • SEAL OF PERFECTION, FULL OFWISDOM AND PERFECT IN BEAUTY.
  • 00:08:25.888 --> 00:08:29.792
  • YOU WERE IN EDEN, THE GARDEN OFGOD; EVERY PRECIOUS STONE WAS
  • 00:08:29.825 --> 00:08:34.330
  • YOUR COVERING: THE SARDIUS,TOPAZ, AND DIAMOND, BERYL, ONYX,
  • 00:08:34.363 --> 00:08:38.267
  • AND JASPER," - HE WASBEAUTIFULLY ADORNED - THE
  • 00:08:38.301 --> 00:08:40.336
  • HIGHEST OF GOD'S ANGELS - "THESAPPHIRE, TURQUOISE, AND
  • 00:08:40.369 --> 00:08:43.739
  • EMERALD WITH GOLD.THE WORKMANSHIP OF YOUR TIMBRELS
  • 00:08:43.773 --> 00:08:46.609
  • AND PIPES" - THOSE ARE BEAUTIFULINSTRUMENTS - HE HAD A BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:08:46.642 --> 00:08:49.312
  • VOICE - INCREDIBLE MUSICALTALENT.
  • 00:08:49.345 --> 00:08:52.748
  • AND THE DEVIL DOES USE MUSIC -"WAS PREPARED FOR YOU ON THE DAY
  • 00:08:52.782 --> 00:08:56.252
  • YOU WERE CREATED" - NOT BORN.PEOPLE ARE BORN.
  • 00:08:56.285 --> 00:08:59.155
  • ADAM WAS CREATED. ANGELS ARECREATED, THEY'RE NOT BORN.
  • 00:08:59.188 --> 00:09:01.791
  • SO IT'S TALKING ABOUT A CREATEDBEING THAT WAS IN THE GARDEN OF
  • 00:09:01.824 --> 00:09:05.394
  • GOD - "YOU ARE THE ANOINTEDCHERUB" - NOW, IS THERE ANY
  • 00:09:05.428 --> 00:09:09.065
  • DOUBT WHO HE'S TALKING ABOUT?HE WAS A CHERUB.
  • 00:09:09.098 --> 00:09:11.834
  • HE WAS A SPECIAL, CHOSEN CHERUB- "THE ONE ABOVE ALL OTHERS, AN
  • 00:09:11.867 --> 00:09:15.404
  • ANGEL WHO COVERS; IESTABLISHED YOU SO.
  • 00:09:15.438 --> 00:09:19.375
  • YOU WERE ON THE HOLYMOUNTAIN OF GOD.
  • 00:09:19.408 --> 00:09:20.977
  • YOU WALKED BACK AND FORTH INTHE MIDST OF FIERY STONES.
  • 00:09:21.010 --> 00:09:24.347
  • YOU WERE PERFECT IN YOUR WAYSFROM THE DAY YOU WERE CREATED
  • 00:09:24.380 --> 00:09:28.918
  • TILL INIQUITY WAS FOUND IN YOU."SO, DID GOD MAKE A DEVIL?

  • EVERY GOOD AND PERFECTGIFT IS FROM GOD.
  • 00:09:37.526 --> 00:09:40.029
  • DID GOD MAKE A DEVIL?-NO.
  • 00:09:40.062 --> 00:09:41.631
  • -OR DID GOD MAKE A BEAUTIFULANGEL WHO DECIDED TO BE A DEVIL?
  • 00:09:41.664 --> 00:09:43.899
  • -CORRECT.-HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE KNOWN
  • 00:09:43.933 --> 00:09:45.801
  • FAMILIES - WONDERFUL FAMILY -GOOD MOTHER, GOOD FATHER - HAVE
  • 00:09:45.835 --> 00:09:50.406
  • SEVERAL CHILDREN AND ONE OF THEMJUST TURNS INTO A WILD

  • MISTAKE, HUH?'NUMBER 3, WHAT WAS THE ORIGIN
  • 00:10:07.423 --> 00:10:11.661
  • OF LUCIFER AND WHAT WAS HISPOSITION? WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:10:11.694 --> 00:10:14.630
  • ELABORATE A LITTLE MORE ON WHATI TOUCHED ON.
  • 00:10:14.664 --> 00:10:16.699
  • IT SAYS "YOU WERE PERFECT INYOUR WAYS FROM THE DAY YOU WERE
  • 00:10:16.732 --> 00:10:19.402
  • CREATED, TILL INIQUITYWAS FOUND IN YOU."
  • 00:10:19.435 --> 00:10:22.505
  • THE ANGELS ARE THEHIGHEST ORDER OF GOD.
  • 00:10:22.538 --> 00:10:25.041
  • THEY ARE THE MINISTERINGSPIRITS OF GOD.
  • 00:10:25.074 --> 00:10:26.709
  • THE BIBLE EVEN SAYS, 'MAN ISMADE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS.'
  • 00:10:26.742 --> 00:10:30.179
  • LUCIFER WAS THE HIGHEST OF THEANGELS AND, IF THESE ARE THE
  • 00:10:30.212 --> 00:10:33.549
  • MINISTERING SPIRITS OF GOD, THATMEANS LUCIFER MAY HAVE BEEN ONE
  • 00:10:33.582 --> 00:10:36.519
  • OF THE EARLIEST CREATIONS OF GOD- THE LEADER OF THE ANGELS -
  • 00:10:36.552 --> 00:10:41.590
  • INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL- BIG, POWERFUL.
  • 00:10:41.624 --> 00:10:44.827
  • DON'T UNDERESTIMATETHE POWER OF THE DEVIL.
  • 00:10:44.860 --> 00:10:47.663
  • AT ONE POINT, GOD RELEASED HISPROTECTION FROM JOB AND HE TOLD
  • 00:10:47.697 --> 00:10:51.901
  • THE DEVIL, 'ALRIGHT, I'M GOINGTO LET YOU AFFLICT HIM.' THE
  • 00:10:51.934 --> 00:10:55.171
  • BIBLE SAYS THE DEVIL BROUGHTFIRE DOWN FROM HEAVEN.
  • 00:10:55.204 --> 00:10:58.240
  • THE DEVIL SENT A HURR - SENT ATORNADO TO KILL HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:10:58.274 --> 00:11:02.044
  • WHEN A HOUSE COLLAPSED. ALLTHESE CALAMITIES CAME.
  • 00:11:02.078 --> 00:11:04.346
  • SATAN HAD INCREDIBLEPOWER OVER THESE FORCES.

  • THE BIBLE SAYS 'EVERY GOOD GIFT'- IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOD'S

  • INTENTIONS ARE, LOOKIN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 00:13:34.930 --> 00:13:36.298
  • WHEN GOD MADE THIS WORLD - EVERYDAY, WHEN HE CREATES SOMETHING,
  • 00:13:36.332 --> 00:13:38.467
  • WHAT DOES HE DECLARE?-IT'S GOOD.
  • 00:13:38.500 --> 00:13:40.402
  • -IT'S ALWAYS GOOD. IT WAS GOOD.IT WAS GOOD.
  • 00:13:40.436 --> 00:13:42.872
  • IT WAS GOOD, GOOD, VERY GOOD.IT WAS A PARADISE.
  • 00:13:42.905 --> 00:13:46.108
  • AND, DO YOU THINK HE HADLESS GOING ON IN HEAVEN?
  • 00:13:46.141 --> 00:13:48.611
  • EVERYTHING GOD MADE WAS GOOD.THERE WAS PERFECT HARMONY.
  • 00:13:48.644 --> 00:13:51.614
  • HOW LONG DID THAT LAST?I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:13:51.647 --> 00:13:53.983
  • LUCIFER MIGHT HAVE BEEN ON THERIGHT TRACK FOR MILLIONS OF
  • 00:13:54.016 --> 00:13:57.519
  • YEARS - NO WAY OFKNOWING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:13:57.553 --> 00:13:59.588
  • BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED.HE BECAME DISSATISFIED.
  • 00:13:59.622 --> 00:14:03.359
  • HE BEGAN TO BE JEALOUS OF THEHONOR AND THE WORSHIP AND
  • 00:14:03.392 --> 00:14:07.596
  • ADORATION THAT JESUS RECEIVEDFROM THE OTHER CREATURES -
  • 00:14:07.630 --> 00:14:11.367
  • CHRIST, BEFORE HIS INCARNATION- AND HE WANTED THAT POSITION.
  • 00:14:11.400 --> 00:14:16.038
  • AND HE BEGAN TO RESENTTHAT GOD WAS WORSHIPED.
  • 00:14:16.071 --> 00:14:19.742
  • HE STARTED TO RESENT THATGOD HAD RULES AND LAWS.
  • 00:14:19.775 --> 00:14:22.678
  • HE STARTED THINKING, 'WESHOULDN'T - WE'RE INTELLIGENT
  • 00:14:22.711 --> 00:14:24.780
  • ANGELS, WE DON'T NEED GODTELLING US WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:14:24.813 --> 00:14:26.982
  • I SHOULD BE ABLE TOHAVE THAT KIND OF POWER.
  • 00:14:27.016 --> 00:14:29.418
  • WHY CAN'T I HAVE THEPOWER TO CREATE?'
  • 00:14:29.451 --> 00:14:31.587
  • HE MAY HAVE RESENTED WHEN GODWAS MAKING THE WORLD BECAUSE,
  • 00:14:31.620 --> 00:14:34.423
  • YOU KNOW, HUMANS CANPROCREATE IN THEIR OWN IMAGE.
  • 00:14:34.456 --> 00:14:37.826
  • WE'RE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.GOD CREATES IN HIS OWN IMAGE; WE
  • 00:14:37.860 --> 00:14:40.663
  • CREATE, THROUGH AN ACT OF LOVE,IN OUR OWN IMAGE.
  • 00:14:40.696 --> 00:14:43.365
  • ANGELS CAN'T DO THAT.YOU KNOW, JESUS SAID ANGELS
  • 00:14:43.399 --> 00:14:45.534
  • DON'T MARRY AND THEY CAN'TPROCREATE. AND SO, HE BEGAN TO
  • 00:14:45.567 --> 00:14:50.639
  • RESENT THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE ALLTHE POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:14:50.673 --> 00:14:54.109
  • AND HE STARTED TO WANTTHE POSITION OF CHRIST.
  • 00:14:54.143 --> 00:14:56.946
  • AND HE BEGAN TO START ACAMPAIGN TO TAKE THAT.
  • 00:14:56.979 --> 00:15:00.516
  • NOW, WHILE - I WANT YOUTO DO SOMETHING FOR ME.

  • HE'S NOT BATMAN BUTHE'S GOT BAT WINGS.
  • 00:15:33.716 --> 00:15:37.686
  • DO THESE IMAGESCOME FROM THE BIBLE?
  • 00:15:37.720 --> 00:15:41.557
  • NOW THE DEVIL'S HAPPY - YOUKNOW, YOU BUY A CAN OF RED DEVIL

  • THAT'S 2 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 11.WE'LL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:16:10.953 --> 00:16:14.256
  • SO WHAT LED HIM TO SIN?YOU READ, AGAIN, IN EZEKIEL
  • 00:16:14.289 --> 00:16:18.694
  • 28:17, "YOUR HEART WAS LIFTED UPBECAUSE OF YOUR BEAUTY.
  • 00:16:18.727 --> 00:16:23.699
  • YOU CORRUPTED YOUR WISDOM FORTHE SAKE OF YOUR SPLENDOR.
  • 00:16:23.732 --> 00:16:27.036
  • FOR YOU HAVE SAID IN YOURHEART, 'I WILL ASCEND INTO

  • AND NOT ONLY DOES POWER CORRUPT,BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE, IF THEY'RE
  • 00:16:37.880 --> 00:16:41.116
  • BLESSED WITH MONEY, THEYCAN BE CORRUPTED BY IT.
  • 00:16:41.150 --> 00:16:44.620
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE BLESSEDWITH POPULARITY.
  • 00:16:44.653 --> 00:16:46.722
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE BLESSED WITHHANDSOME OR BEAUTIFUL APPEARANCE
  • 00:16:46.755 --> 00:16:51.727
  • AND THEY CAN BECOME PREOCCUPIED.THE DEVIL, BECAUSE HE RECEIVED
  • 00:16:51.760 --> 00:16:55.898
  • SO MUCH PRAISE AND SO MUCHADORATION FROM THE OTHER ANGELS,
  • 00:16:55.931 --> 00:16:59.968
  • HE BEGAN TO WANT IT ALL.HE STARTED TO RESENT
  • 00:17:00.002 --> 00:17:03.338
  • THAT JESUS WAS ABOVE HIM.YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING.
  • 00:17:03.372 --> 00:17:07.209
  • A KID WILL BE HAPPY IF YOUTAKE THEM TO BASKIN ROBBINS 31
  • 00:17:07.242 --> 00:17:10.913
  • FLAVORS AND YOU GET THEM ADOUBLE SCOOP OF ICE CREAM.

  • SCOOP. (LAUGHTER) ISN'T THATRIGHT? WHAT'S WRONG WITH US?
  • 00:17:16.752 --> 00:17:23.192
  • THERE'S SOMETHING - THISJEALOUSY - THIS RESENTMENT - AND
  • 00:17:23.225 --> 00:17:25.994
  • HE BEGAN TO COVETTHE POSITION OF GOD.
  • 00:17:26.028 --> 00:17:28.464
  • "FOR YOU HAVE SAID IN YOURHEART: 'I WILL ASCEND INTO
  • 00:17:28.497 --> 00:17:31.033
  • HEAVEN...I WILL BE LIKE THE MOSTHIGH.'" - 'I WANT TO BE GOD.'
  • 00:17:31.066 --> 00:17:35.804
  • AND SO, HE BEGAN A CAMPAIGN.HE REALIZED HE HAD TO WORK
  • 00:17:35.838 --> 00:17:39.508
  • SUBTLY AND HE BEGAN TO CIRCULATEAMONG THE OTHER UNFALLEN
  • 00:17:39.541 --> 00:17:42.144
  • ANGELS IN HEAVEN.WELL, NONE OF THEM WERE
  • 00:17:42.177 --> 00:17:43.779
  • FALLEN AT THAT POINT.AND HE BEGAN TO CREATE
  • 00:17:43.812 --> 00:17:46.648
  • INNUENDO AND DOUBTS ABOUT GOD.AND, YOU KNOW, 'WE DON'T
  • 00:17:46.682 --> 00:17:50.352
  • NEED GOD TELLING US.WE SHOULD ALL BE OUR OWN GODS.
  • 00:17:50.385 --> 00:17:53.188
  • AND HE SHOULD GIVE USTHE ABILITY TO CREATE.
  • 00:17:53.222 --> 00:17:54.957
  • AND WE'RE RIGHT NEXT TO GOD, WHYDOESN'T HE GIVE US MORE GLORY?
  • 00:17:54.990 --> 00:17:58.227
  • AND WHY DON'T WE GET WORSHIPPEDBY THE OTHER UNFALLEN WORLDS?'
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:01.196
  • AND LUCIFER BEGAN TO JUST SOWSEEDS OF QUESTIONS AND DOUBT.
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:05.901
  • AND HE IS THE MASTER AT IT.HE WAS BRILLIANT.
  • 00:18:05.934 --> 00:18:10.339
  • HE HAD SUPERNATURAL INTELLIGENCETHAT YOU AND I CANNOT EVEN
  • 00:18:10.372 --> 00:18:13.375
  • COMPREHEND AND HE BEGAN TO BENDALL OF HIS ENERGIES TO SEE IF HE
  • 00:18:13.408 --> 00:18:17.479
  • COULD - HE THOUGHT, 'IF I COULDGET ALL OF THE POWER OF THESE
  • 00:18:17.513 --> 00:18:19.982
  • BILLIONS OF ANGELS ON MY SIDE,WE COULD EVEN OVERTHROW GOD.'
  • 00:18:20.015 --> 00:18:25.888
  • I KNOW, IT SOUNDS CRAZY TOUS, BUT THAT'S WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:18:25.921 --> 00:18:28.924
  • HE BEGAN A REBELLION IN HEAVENAND ONE-THIRD OF THE ANGELS
  • 00:18:28.957 --> 00:18:32.961
  • STARTED LISTENING TO HIM.YOU KNOW, YOU CAN READ THERE IN
  • 00:18:32.995 --> 00:18:35.964
  • PROVERBS CHAPTER 6, VERSES 16THROUGH 19, IT SAYS, "THESE SIX
  • 00:18:35.998 --> 00:18:41.136
  • THINGS THE LORD HATES, YES,SEVEN ARE AN ABOMINATION TO HIM;
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:45.941
  • A PROUD LOOK," - FIRST - "ALYING TONGUE,' - THE DEVIL
  • 00:18:45.974 --> 00:18:49.111
  • STARTED WITH PRIDE - "A LYINGTONGUE, HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT
  • 00:18:49.144 --> 00:18:53.549
  • BLOOD, A HEART THAT DEVISESWICKED PLANS, FEET THAT ARE

  • 00:19:01.857 --> 00:19:06.828
  • HE MENTIONS WITH - THE SEVENTH -'ONE WHO SOWS DISCORD AMONG
  • 00:19:06.862 --> 00:19:10.899
  • BRETHREN.' WHAT DID LUCIFER DO?HE STARTED WITH PRIDE AND ENDED
  • 00:19:10.933 --> 00:19:14.336
  • UP SOWING DISCORD IN HEAVEN.IT FINALLY TURNED INTO AN OPEN
  • 00:19:14.369 --> 00:19:18.106
  • REBELLION AND THEY WERE FINALLYCAST OUT.
  • 00:19:18.140 --> 00:19:20.976
  • NOW, BEFORE I GET TO THAT PART,SOME OF YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING,
  • 00:19:21.009 --> 00:19:24.713
  • 'PASTOR DOUG,' - ALRIGHT, LET'SASK THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION:
  • 00:19:24.746 --> 00:19:30.819
  • 'IF GOD'S IN CHARGE - IF GOD ISALL-POWERFUL, WHY WOULD HE PUT
  • 00:19:30.852 --> 00:19:35.290
  • UP WITH THAT?IF SOMETHING - IF LUCIFER
  • 00:19:35.324 --> 00:19:38.293
  • STARTED TO MISBEHAVE LIKE THATTHEN, OBVIOUSLY, GOD DID
  • 00:19:38.327 --> 00:19:41.630
  • SOMETHING WRONG IN THEPROGRAMMING - THERE
  • 00:19:41.663 --> 00:19:44.333
  • WAS A SOFTWARE PROBLEM.GOD GOT THE WIRING WRONG.
  • 00:19:44.366 --> 00:19:48.704
  • THERE WAS A DEFECTSOMEWHERE IN LUCIFER.
  • 00:19:48.737 --> 00:19:51.773
  • IF THERE WAS NO DEFECT HENEVER WOULD HAVE DONE THAT.
  • 00:19:51.807 --> 00:19:54.409
  • WHY WOULD GOD MAKE AN ANGELTHAT EVEN COULD BECOME A DEVIL?
  • 00:19:54.443 --> 00:19:57.412
  • WHY DIDN'T HE JUST TAKE ADIFFERENT PATTERN OFF THE WALL
  • 00:19:57.446 --> 00:19:59.781
  • AND SAY, 'I'M GOING TO MAKE ONETHAT WILL NEVER BECOME A DEVIL'
  • 00:19:59.815 --> 00:20:01.717
  • - AND YOU AND I WOULDN'T HAVEALL THE PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE IN
  • 00:20:01.750 --> 00:20:03.752
  • THE WORLD TODAY OR IN OUR LIVES.LORD, WHY DID YOU DO THAT?'
  • 00:20:03.785 --> 00:20:08.390
  • DID GOD MAKE A MISTAKE?-NO.
  • 00:20:08.423 --> 00:20:14.062
  • -COULD GOD HAVE MADE LUCIFERWHERE HE NEVER REBELLED?
  • 00:20:14.096 --> 00:20:17.199
  • YES. WHY DIDN'T HE?BECAUSE GOD GIVES ALL OF
  • 00:20:17.232 --> 00:20:23.071
  • HIS CREATURES FREEDOM.THE GREATEST PROOF THAT GOD IS
  • 00:20:23.105 --> 00:20:25.073
  • A GOD OF LOVE IS THE FACT THATSOME OF THE CREATURES
  • 00:20:25.107 --> 00:20:28.744
  • CHOSE NOT TO LOVE HIM.HOW MANY OF YOU ARE PARENTS?
  • 00:20:28.777 --> 00:20:35.450
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE YOU HADCHILDREN THERE WAS A RISK THAT
  • 00:20:35.484 --> 00:20:38.186
  • YOUR CHILDREN MIGHT NOTALWAYS LISTEN TO YOU?
  • 00:20:38.220 --> 00:20:40.856
  • -YES.-AND YOU STILL HAD THEM, RIGHT?
  • 00:20:40.889 --> 00:20:46.061
  • LET ME SEE IF - HOW MANYOF YOU WANT TO BE LOVED?
  • 00:20:46.094 --> 00:20:50.098
  • DID ANY OF YOU HAVE CHILDRENBECAUSE YOU WANTED LOVE?
  • 00:20:50.132 --> 00:20:53.702
  • YOU GOT A SURPRISE,DIDN'T YOU?
  • 00:20:53.735 --> 00:20:55.203
  • SOME OF YOU HAD CHILDRENBECAUSE YOU WANTED TO LOVE.
  • 00:20:55.237 --> 00:20:57.806
  • YOU KNOW, I JUST - I ALWAYSLAUGH WHEN I SEE THESE YOUNG
  • 00:20:57.839 --> 00:20:59.875
  • COUPLES AND THE GIRL GETS THATLOOK IN HER EYES AND SHE SAYS,
  • 00:20:59.908 --> 00:21:03.378
  • 'I WANT A BABY.' (LAUGHTER) ITJUST TOTALLY IS LIKE - THEY
  • 00:21:03.412 --> 00:21:08.550
  • DON'T REALIZE THEY DON'TSTAY THAT WAY, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:21:08.583 --> 00:21:10.619
  • IT REMIND ME OF WHEN MY KIDSSAY, 'I WANT A PUPPY.' IT'LL BE
  • 00:21:10.652 --> 00:21:13.989
  • A PUPPY FOR ABOUT A MONTH ANDTHEN THEY GET TO A BIG DOG.
  • 00:21:14.022 --> 00:21:17.092
  • BUT WE HAVE OUR FAMILIES, WE GETOUR PETS, WE DO THIS BECAUSE WE
  • 00:21:17.125 --> 00:21:21.296
  • WANT LOVE.WE WANT TO BE LOVED.
  • 00:21:21.330 --> 00:21:22.731
  • BUT THERE'S A RISKWHEN YOU WANT LOVE.
  • 00:21:22.764 --> 00:21:25.067
  • NOW, I WANT LOVE, JUST LIKE YOU.I WILL ADMIT I LIKE TO BE LIKED
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:29.304
  • MORE THAN I LIKE TO BE DISLIKED.AND I FIGURED OUT A WAY
  • 00:21:29.338 --> 00:21:33.508
  • WHERE I CAN GET MORE LOVE. ITCAME WITH MY SMART PHONE.
  • 00:21:33.542 --> 00:21:42.217

  • 00:21:53.061 --> 00:21:56.131
  • -'PASTOR DOUG, I WANT TO TELLYOU SOMETHING.'
  • 00:21:56.164 --> 00:21:58.033
  • -YES, SMART PHONE?-'I JUST HAVEN'T TOLD YOU

  • WOW, YOU EVENBORDER ON MAGNIFICENT.
  • 00:22:04.339 --> 00:22:06.808

  • 00:22:23.225 --> 00:22:27.095
  • I LOVE YOU, DOUG.' (LAUGHTER)-I SHOULD BE ABLE TO PATENT
  • 00:22:27.129 --> 00:22:31.433
  • THAT AND MAKE A LOTOF MONEY, RIGHT? (LAUGHTER) IT'S
  • 00:22:31.466 --> 00:22:34.269
  • JUST EVERYONE WANTS LOVE, THEREYOU'VE GOT IT. I'VE GOT A SMART
  • 00:22:34.302 --> 00:22:36.638
  • PHONE THAT SAYS IT LOVES ME. WHYWON'T THIS WORK? IS THAT LOVE?
  • 00:22:36.671 --> 00:22:43.245
  • -NO.-BECAUSE I MADE IT SAY
  • 00:22:43.278 --> 00:22:44.913
  • IT LOVES ME.IT DOESN'T LOVE ME.
  • 00:22:44.946 --> 00:22:49.084
  • SO, COULD GOD PRE-PROGRAMLUCIFER TO SAY, 'I LOVE YOU,
  • 00:22:49.117 --> 00:22:52.654
  • GOD. I LOVE YOU, GOD.I LOVE YOU GOD.'? SURE.
  • 00:22:52.687 --> 00:22:55.023
  • WOULD IT HAVE BEEN LOVE?-NO.
  • 00:22:55.056 --> 00:22:56.758
  • -THE FACT THAT HE HAD TO MAKEHIS CREATURES FREE ILLUSTRATES
  • 00:22:56.792 --> 00:23:01.430
  • THAT THERE'S A CHOICE THAT SOMEMIGHT CHOOSE NOT TO LOVE HIM.
  • 00:23:01.463 --> 00:23:06.468
  • AND HE DIDN'T COMPLETELYOBLITERATE LUCIFER AS SOON AS HE
  • 00:23:06.501 --> 00:23:09.471
  • REBELLED BECAUSE THEN THE OTHERCREATURES IN THE UNIVERSE WOULD
  • 00:23:09.504 --> 00:23:11.973
  • HAVE LISTENED TO GOD OUT OFFEAR INSTEAD OF OUT OF LOVE.
  • 00:23:12.007 --> 00:23:15.310
  • GOD WANTS US TO OBEY HIMBECAUSE WE LOVE HIM, AMEN?
  • 00:23:15.343 --> 00:23:18.113
  • -AMEN.-SO WHAT HAPPENED AS A
  • 00:23:18.146 --> 00:23:20.048
  • CONSEQUENCE OF LUCIFER'SREBELLION IN HEAVEN?
  • 00:23:20.081 --> 00:23:23.985
  • FINALLY IT BROKE OUT INTO AWAR.
  • 00:23:24.019 --> 00:23:26.254
  • AND THE WORDS 'WAR IN HEAVEN,'THEY'RE A PARADOX, BUT THAT'S
  • 00:23:26.288 --> 00:23:30.158
  • WHAT IT SAYS IN REVELATIONCHAPTER 12, VERSE 7, "AND WAR
  • 00:23:30.192 --> 00:23:34.029
  • BROKE OUT IN HEAVEN: MICHAELAND HIS ANGELS FOUGHT WITH THE
  • 00:23:34.062 --> 00:23:36.331
  • DRAGON:" - A DRAGON'S ASYMBOLIC NAME FOR WHO?
  • 00:23:36.364 --> 00:23:39.167
  • THE DEVIL - "AND THEDRAGON...FOUGHT," - AGAINST
  • 00:23:39.201 --> 00:23:42.370
  • MICHAEL - AND IT SAYS,"BUT THEY DID NOT PREVAIL."
  • 00:23:42.404 --> 00:23:45.540
  • THEY WERE, ULTIMATELY, CAST OUT.BUT WHERE DID THEY
  • 00:23:45.574 --> 00:23:49.211
  • GO FROM THERE?WHERE IS SATAN'S PRESENT
  • 00:23:49.244 --> 00:23:51.813
  • HEADQUARTERS AS HE CONTINUES HISREBELLION AGAINST GOD?
  • 00:23:51.847 --> 00:23:55.817
  • WHERE DID THE DEVIL GO AS HISBEACHHEAD? AND YOU KNOW -
  • 00:23:55.851 --> 00:23:58.820
  • -EARTH.-YEAH, HE CAME DOWN HERE.
  • 00:23:58.854 --> 00:24:00.789
  • I JUST PROBABLY OUGHT TO PAUSEHERE AND ASK WHAT WAS USED IN
  • 00:24:00.822 --> 00:24:04.359
  • THAT BATTLE? WHAT DO ANGELS USE?DO THEY USE GUNS?
  • 00:24:04.392 --> 00:24:07.062
  • I MEAN, WE TRIED TO ILLUSTRATETHIS IN A FINAL EVENTS DVD - OR
  • 00:24:07.095 --> 00:24:10.899
  • COSMIC CONFLICT DVD -ANY OF YOU EVER SEE THAT?
  • 00:24:10.932 --> 00:24:13.001
  • -YES.-AND WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
  • 00:24:13.034 --> 00:24:14.603
  • AND SO THE PRODUCER GOT SOMELIGHT SABERS.
  • 00:24:14.636 --> 00:24:16.471
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW - WHATDO YOU ANGELS USE?
  • 00:24:16.505 --> 00:24:18.006
  • (LAUGHTER) THERE WAS, ACTUALLY,A VERSE IN THE BIBLE WHERE IT
  • 00:24:18.039 --> 00:24:20.308
  • TALKS ABOUT AN ANGEL OVERJERUSALEM WITH A SWORD AND SO WE
  • 00:24:20.342 --> 00:24:22.611
  • SAID THE ONLY WEAPONS WE EVERSEE THESE ANGELS WITH ARE
  • 00:24:22.644 --> 00:24:24.613
  • SWORDS.SO WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:24:24.646 --> 00:24:26.681
  • BUT I DOUBT THEY USED WEAPONSLIKE WE DO HERE, BECAUSE THEY'RE
  • 00:24:26.715 --> 00:24:30.085
  • SPIRITUAL CREATURES.BUT THERE WAS SOME
  • 00:24:30.118 --> 00:24:31.586
  • TREMENDOUS CONFLICT. AND,FINALLY, THEY WERE EVICTED
  • 00:24:31.620 --> 00:24:35.156
  • - EXPELLED - FROM HEAVEN.SO, WHERE DID HE GO?
  • 00:24:35.190 --> 00:24:39.661
  • HE WENT ALL THROUGH THEUNIVERSE, PROBABLY, TRYING TO
  • 00:24:39.694 --> 00:24:41.796
  • FIND OTHERS HE COULD RECRUIT TOJOIN HIM, UNTIL HE CAME TO THIS
  • 00:24:41.830 --> 00:24:45.300
  • WORLD AND HE FINALLYFOUND SOMEONE.
  • 00:24:45.333 --> 00:24:47.502
  • AND YOU CAN READ IN REVELATION12:4, "HIS TAIL DREW A THIRD OF
  • 00:24:47.536 --> 00:24:51.306
  • THE STARS" - WHO DOTHOSE STARS REPRESENT?
  • 00:24:51.339 --> 00:24:54.109
  • -ANGELS.-THE ANGELS THAT JOINED
  • 00:24:54.142 --> 00:24:55.844
  • HIM IN HIS REBELLION.OUT OF ALL THE ANGELS, WHAT
  • 00:24:55.877 --> 00:24:57.979
  • PERCENT JOINED LUCIFER?-ONE-THIRD.
  • 00:24:58.013 --> 00:25:00.549
  • -ONE-THIRD. THAT'S A LOT.IF GOD'S GOT GOOD
  • 00:25:00.582 --> 00:25:04.586
  • ANGELS THAT GUARD US.THE DEVIL PROBABLY HAS
  • 00:25:04.619 --> 00:25:07.088
  • DEMONS THAT TEMPT US.SOME OF YOU MAYBE READ C.S.
  • 00:25:07.122 --> 00:25:10.325
  • LEWIS' BOOK THE SCREWTAPELETTERS WHERE HE TALKS ABOUT THE
  • 00:25:10.358 --> 00:25:13.328
  • WAY THAT THE DEVIL IS ALWAYSTRYING TO WORK AND CONNIVE TO
  • 00:25:13.361 --> 00:25:16.097
  • BRING ABOUT PEOPLE'S DOWNFALLAND HOW GOD INTERVENES TO SAVE.
  • 00:25:16.131 --> 00:25:20.135
  • HE CAST THEM TO THE EARTH.SO HE CAME DOWN HERE.
  • 00:25:20.168 --> 00:25:23.305
  • AND, AGAIN, YOU CAN READ INREVELATION 12, VERSE 9, "SO THAT
  • 00:25:23.338 --> 00:25:26.741
  • GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THATSERPENT OF OLD, CALLED THE DEVIL
  • 00:25:26.775 --> 00:25:30.078
  • AND SATAN, WHO DECEIVESTHE WHOLE WORLD."
  • 00:25:30.111 --> 00:25:32.781
  • SATAN CLAIMS THIS WORLD IS HIS."HE WAS CAST TO THE EARTH AND
  • 00:25:32.814 --> 00:25:36.217
  • HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUTWITH HIM."
  • 00:25:36.251 --> 00:25:38.286
  • THERE'S NO QUESTION - SATAN -AND HE'S NOT DOWN UNDER THE
  • 00:25:38.320 --> 00:25:40.956
  • EARTH SOMEWHERE.REMEMBER, WHEN THE DEVIL CAME
  • 00:25:40.989 --> 00:25:43.625
  • BEFORE THIS HEAVENLY ASSEMBLY,IN THE BOOK OF JOB, GOD SAYS
  • 00:25:43.658 --> 00:25:47.896
  • TO SATAN, 'WHERE DID YOU COMEFROM?'
  • 00:25:47.929 --> 00:25:49.297
  • - GOD KNEW, BUT HE'S ASKINGFOR THE BENEFIT OF THE OTHER
  • 00:25:49.331 --> 00:25:50.999
  • ATTENDEES AT THIS CONVENTION.AND HE SAYS, 'I'VE COME FROM THE
  • 00:25:51.032 --> 00:25:54.936
  • EARTH, FROM WALKING UP AND DOWNAND BACK AND FORTH IN THE EARTH.
  • 00:25:54.970 --> 00:25:58.239
  • IT'S MY DOMAIN.'HE'S SAYING,
  • 00:25:58.273 --> 00:26:00.108
  • 'I SURVEY IT.' SO SATAN HASSET UP HIS HEADQUARTERS HERE.
  • 00:26:00.141 --> 00:26:04.245
  • CHRIST REFERS TO HIM ASTHE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:26:04.279 --> 00:26:06.481
