  • A TEACHING MINISTRY THAT FOCUSES
  • 00:00:05.030 --> 00:00:06.240
  • ON GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:00:06.240 --> 00:00:08.080
  • > WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:11.220
  • SEE THINGS WITH OUR HEART
  • 00:00:11.280 --> 00:00:14.280
  • THAT YOU CAN'T SEE
  • 00:00:14.280 --> 00:00:16.170
  • WITH YOUR EYES.
  • 00:00:16.170 --> 00:00:17.290
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:18.270
  • GRASP AND SAY,
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:19.280
  • WELCOME TO OUR THURSDAY'S
  • 00:00:24.290 --> 00:00:26.040
  • BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:00:26.040 --> 00:00:28.220
  • TODAY I'M NEARING THE END
  • 00:00:28.220 --> 00:00:30.050
  • OF MY THIRD WEEK OF TEACHING
  • 00:00:30.050 --> 00:00:32.190
  • ON THE POWER OF IMAGINATION.
  • 00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:35.030
  • I'VE GOT A BRAND NEW BOOK OUT
  • 00:00:35.030 --> 00:00:36.120
  • ON THIS.
  • 00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:36.260
  • THIS IS THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:00:36.260 --> 00:00:37.210
  • I'VE EVER TAUGHT THIS
  • 00:00:37.210 --> 00:00:38.180
  • ON TELEVISION.
  • 00:00:38.180 --> 00:00:39.260
  • I'VE REFERRED TO SOME
  • 00:00:39.260 --> 00:00:40.270
  • OF THESE TRUTHS BEFORE,
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:41.290
  • BUT THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:00:41.290 --> 00:00:42.210
  • I'VE EVER JUST TAUGHT
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:44.130
  • ON THE POWER OF IMAGINATION,
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:45.290
  • THE FIRST TIME I'VE EVER OFFERED
  • 00:00:45.290 --> 00:00:47.120
  • THIS BOOK,
  • 00:00:47.120 --> 00:00:48.040
  • AND WE ALSO HAVE CDs AND DVDs
  • 00:00:48.040 --> 00:00:50.210
  • THAT GO ALONG WITH IT
  • 00:00:50.210 --> 00:00:51.280
  • AND I ENCOURAGE YOU TO PLEASE
  • 00:00:51.280 --> 00:00:53.100
  • TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT.
  • 00:00:53.100 --> 00:00:55.050
  • I'VE COVERED TOO MUCH MATERIAL
  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:56.260
  • TO GO BACK THROUGH EVERYTHING
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:00:58.050
  • BUT LET ME JUST QUICKLY SAY
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:01:00.190
  • THAT YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:01:00.190 --> 00:01:02.040
  • IS YOUR SPIRITUAL WOMB.
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:04.160
  • IT'S WHERE YOU CONCEIVE
  • 00:01:04.160 --> 00:01:06.240
  • YOUR MIRACLES FROM GOD.
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:09.090
  • YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:01:09.090 --> 00:01:10.120
  • IS HOW YOU MEDITATE
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:12.130
  • IN THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:12.130 --> 00:01:14.030
  • YOUR IMAGINATION IS HOW YOU SEE
  • 00:01:14.190 --> 00:01:17.190
  • INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALM
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:19.240
  • AND SEE GOD MOVING
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:21.140
  • WHEN YOU CAN'T SEE HIM
  • 00:01:21.140 --> 00:01:22.230
  • IN THE NATURAL,
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:24.060
  • BUT YOU SEE IT IN THE SPIRITUAL
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:26.110
  • AND YOU TAKE THAT
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:27.090
  • FROM THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:28.100
  • IT PAINTS A PICTURE
  • 00:01:28.100 --> 00:01:29.070
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:30.250
  • THOSE ARE THE THINGS
  • 00:01:30.250 --> 00:01:31.170
  • THAT WE'VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT.
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:33.130
  • AND THEN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS
  • 00:01:33.130 --> 00:01:35.130
  • I WAS SHARING
  • 00:01:35.130 --> 00:01:36.110
  • HOW THAT YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:01:36.260 --> 00:01:39.260
  • IS WHAT...LET ME SAY IT THIS WAY
  • 00:01:39.260 --> 00:01:41.260
  • YOUR POSITIVE IMAGINATION
  • 00:01:41.260 --> 00:01:44.040
  • IS WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS HOPE.
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:47.150
  • I MADE THIS POINT
  • 00:01:47.150 --> 00:01:48.060
  • THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS,
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:49.130
  • BUT I'VE, YOU KNOW, TALKED
  • 00:01:49.130 --> 00:01:51.120
  • SO MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:52.080
  • HOW POWERFUL IMAGINATION IS
  • 00:01:52.080 --> 00:01:54.090
  • AND YET, THE WORD, IMAGINATION,
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:56.020
  • IS USED NEARLY EXCLUSIVELY
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:58.100
  • IN THE BIBLE TO DESCRIBE
  • 00:01:58.100 --> 00:02:00.140
  • A NEGATIVE IMAGINATION,
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:02.100
  • SUCH AS WHEN IT SAYS,
  • 00:02:02.100 --> 00:02:04.020
  • THE LORD SAYS,
  • 00:02:04.020 --> 00:02:04.240
  • THAT THE IMAGINATION
  • 00:02:04.240 --> 00:02:05.290
  • OF THE THOUGHTS OF MEN'S HEART
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.150
  • WAS ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY,
  • 00:02:07.150 --> 00:02:09.250
  • LUKE, CHAPTER 1, VERSE 51,
  • 00:02:09.250 --> 00:02:11.200
  • THAT HE'S GOING TO SCATTER THEM
  • 00:02:11.200 --> 00:02:13.210
  • IN THEIR IMAGINATIONS,
  • 00:02:13.210 --> 00:02:15.170
  • AND IMAGINATION IS NEARLY USED
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:17.270
  • EXCLUSIVELY IN A NEGATIVE WAY.
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:20.230
  • IF IT'S SO POWERFUL, LIKE IN
  • 00:02:20.260 --> 00:02:23.260
  • GENESIS, CHAPTER 11,
  • 00:02:23.260 --> 00:02:25.100
  • WHERE IT SAYS THAT,
  • 00:02:25.100 --> 00:02:26.080
  • NOW NOTHING THAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:27.180
  • IMAGINED WILL BE RESTRAINED
  • 00:02:27.180 --> 00:02:29.150
  • FROM THEM,
  • 00:02:29.150 --> 00:02:30.240
  • IF THE IMAGINATION
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:31.270
  • IS SO POWERFUL,
  • 00:02:31.270 --> 00:02:32.190
  • WHY DOESN'T IT TALK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:02:32.190 --> 00:02:34.080
  • AND THEN I RAN ACROSS
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:36.230
  • ROMANS, CHAPTER 8, VERSE 24,
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:38.280
  • WHERE IT SAYS, WE'RE SAVED
  • 00:02:38.280 --> 00:02:39.230
  • BY HOPE:
  • 00:02:39.230 --> 00:02:40.100
  • BUT HOPE THAT IS SEEN
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.080
  • IS NOT HOPE...
  • 00:02:42.080 --> 00:02:43.120
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:02:43.120 --> 00:02:43.270
  • HOPE IS SEEING SOMETHING
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:46.250
  • THAT YOU CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:49.050
  • THAT'S A DEFINITION
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:50.030
  • OF WHAT YOUR IMAGINATION IS.
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:52.010
  • YOUR IMAGINATION IS THE ABILITY
  • 00:02:52.010 --> 00:02:53.280
  • TO PICTURE, TO SEE SOMETHING
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:56.210
  • THAT YOU CAN'T SEE
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:02:57.160
  • WITH YOUR PHYSICAL EYES
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:58.280
  • OR THAT YOU CAN'T TOUCH,
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:00.030
  • SOMETHING THAT ISN'T PRESENT
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:02.030
  • OR SOMETHING THAT HASN'T
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:03.050
  • COME INTO BEING YET.
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:04.150
  • THAT'S YOUR IMAGINATION,
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:06.070
  • AND SO, YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:07.170
  • FITS THE DESCRIPTION
  • 00:03:07.170 --> 00:03:09.150
  • OF WHAT ROMANS, CHAPTER 8,
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:11.140
  • VERSE 24 AND 25, SAYS.
  • 00:03:11.140 --> 00:03:14.070
  • SO, A POSITIVE IMAGINATION
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:17.170
  • IS WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS HOPE,
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.240
  • AND ON MY PROGRAM YESTERDAY,
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:20.280
  • I WAS USING THIS EXAMPLE
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:22.180
  • OF A MAN, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:24.010
  • TURNING A THERMOSTAT,
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:26.020
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:26.240
  • THE AIR CONDITIONING COMES ON
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:29.020
  • AND IT BEGINS TO START COOLING
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:31.050
  • AND THE PERSON THOUGHT
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:32.030
  • THAT THE THERMOSTAT
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:33.110
  • WAS WHAT MADE THE COLD AIR BLOW.
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:36.110
  • NO, THE THERMOSTAT CONTROLS
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:38.060
  • THE POWER UNIT.
  • 00:03:38.060 --> 00:03:40.070
  • FAITH IS THE POWER.
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:41.260
  • IT'S THE VICTORY THAT OVERCOMES
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:43.230
  • THE WORLD;
  • 00:03:43.230 --> 00:03:44.140
  • I THINK THAT'S 1 JOHN 5:4.
  • 00:03:44.140 --> 00:03:46.260
  • FAITH IS WHAT
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:48.250
  • IS THE POWER SOURCE,
  • 00:03:48.250 --> 00:03:50.020
  • BUT HOPE IS WHAT ACTIVATES
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:53.110
  • YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:54.200
  • SO, HERE IS A STATEMENT.
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:56.160
  • THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:03:56.160 --> 00:03:59.030
  • YOU DO NOT HAVE A FAITH PROBLEM.
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:02.250
  • YOU'VE GOT A THERMOSTAT PROBLEM,
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:04.250
  • OR YOU COULD SAY,
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:05.170
  • YOU'VE GOT AN IMAGINATION
  • 00:04:05.170 --> 00:04:07.100
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:04:07.100 --> 00:04:08.280
  • ONCE YOU CONCEIVE SOMETHING
  • 00:04:08.280 --> 00:04:11.030
  • IN YOUR IMAGINATION,
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:12.130
  • ONCE YOU SEE IT ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:15.160
  • FAITH WILL BRING IT TO PASS.
  • 00:04:15.160 --> 00:04:17.200
  • FAITH WILL KICK IN.
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:19.210
  • AND I USED THIS EXAMPLE
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:21.070
  • OF MY WIFE AND I GOING
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:22.140
  • AND JUST, YOU KNOW, BEGINNING
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:24.020
  • THE PROCESS OF LOOKING
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:25.100
  • FOR A CAR.
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:26.000
  • WE DIDN'T WANT TO BUY,
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.030
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY
  • 00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:28.080
  • AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:29.070
  • BUT WE JUST, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:04:29.070 --> 00:04:30.220
  • WERE STARTING THE PROCESS,
  • 00:04:30.220 --> 00:04:32.240
  • BUT A SALESMAN MADE ME
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:34.160
  • SIT IN THE CAR, FEEL THE CAR,
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:36.220
  • SMELL THE CAR,
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:37.200
  • DRIVE THE CAR AROUND,
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:38.290
  • COMPARE THE WAY IT RODE
  • 00:04:38.290 --> 00:04:40.270
  • TO THE WAY THAT MY JUNKER
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:42.110
  • THAT I WAS DRIVING DROVE,
  • 00:04:42.110 --> 00:04:44.090
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT DID,
  • 00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:45.140
  • IT PLACED AN IMAGE
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:47.000
  • ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:04:47.000 --> 00:04:47.290
  • I COULD SEE MYSELF
  • 00:04:47.290 --> 00:04:50.020
  • IN THAT NEW CAR,
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:51.020
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:52.040
  • FAITH STARTED WORKING,
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:54.080
  • TRYING TO BRING THAT TO PASS.
  • 00:04:54.080 --> 00:04:56.140
  • YOU DON'T HAVE A FAITH PROBLEM;
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:59.190
  • YOU'VE GOT AN IMAGINATION
  • 00:04:59.190 --> 00:05:00.280
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.290
  • BOY, THAT IS A HUGE STATEMENT.
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:05.090
  • THAT IS A HUGE STATEMENT.
  • 00:05:05.090 --> 00:05:07.070
  • YOU KNOW, I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:07.260
  • TAKE TIME TO TEACH ON THIS,
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:09.020
  • BUT LET ME JUST SAY SOME THINGS
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:10.110
  • REAL QUICKLY.
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:11.010
  • I'VE GOT A TEACHING ENTITLED:
  • 00:05:11.010 --> 00:05:12.160
  • THE FAITH OF GOD
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:14.220
  • THAT WILL GO INTO THIS
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:15.210
  • AND EXPLAIN IT
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:16.290
  • IN A LOT MORE DETAIL,
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:19.130
  • BUT WHEN YOU GOT BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:22.020
  • YOU RECEIVED THE FAITH
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:25.010
  • OF THE SON OF GOD
  • 00:05:25.010 --> 00:05:26.200
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:28.130
  • IN EPHESIANS, CHAPTER 2,
  • 00:05:28.130 --> 00:05:29.220
  • VERSE 8, IT SAYS,
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:30.250
  • YOU ARE SAVED BY GRACE
  • 00:05:30.250 --> 00:05:32.020
  • THROUGH FAITH;
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:33.010
  • AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES:
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:34.250
  • IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD:
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:36.010
  • NOT OF WORKS,
  • 00:05:36.010 --> 00:05:36.170
  • LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST.
  • 00:05:36.170 --> 00:05:38.160
  • THERE'S A COUPLE OF WAYS
  • 00:05:38.160 --> 00:05:39.080
  • YOU CAN TAKE THAT.
  • 00:05:39.080 --> 00:05:40.020
  • YOU CAN SAY THAT
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:41.160
  • THAT SALVATION
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:42.150
  • IS NOT OF YOURSELF;
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:43.190
  • IT IS GOD THAT SAVES YOU.
  • 00:05:43.190 --> 00:05:45.050
  • YOU CAN'T SAVE YOURSELF.
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:46.250
  • BUT YOU COULD ALSO SAY THAT
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:48.010
  • THAT FAITH,
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:49.060
  • YOU'RE SAVED BY GRACE
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:50.010
  • THROUGH FAITH,
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:50.260
  • AND THAT FAITH IS NOT
  • 00:05:50.260 --> 00:05:53.000
  • OF YOURSELVES,
  • 00:05:53.000 --> 00:05:54.200
  • IT'S A GIFT OF GOD.
  • 00:05:54.200 --> 00:05:56.170
  • DID YOU KNOW YOU HAD TO HAVE
  • 00:05:56.170 --> 00:05:57.260
  • SUPERNATURAL FAITH
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:06:01.020
  • IN ORDER TO BE BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:06:01.020 --> 00:06:02.270
  • BECAUSE YOU WERE BELIEVING
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:03.200
  • FOR THINGS THAT YOU
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:04.110
  • COULDN'T SEE.
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:05.250
  • NATURAL HUMAN FAITH CAN ONLY DO
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:09.190
  • WHAT IT CAN SEE, TASTE, HEAR,
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:11.130
  • SMELL AND FEEL.
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:12.240
  • I'VE HAD PEOPLE BEFORE
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:14.000
  • USE A CHAIR
  • 00:06:14.000 --> 00:06:14.290
  • AS AN EXAMPLE OF FAITH
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:16.280
  • AND THEY SAY, YOU'RE SITTING
  • 00:06:16.280 --> 00:06:18.000
  • IN A CHAIR,
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:19.110
  • AND SO, THAT IS YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:21.000
  • YOU'VE PUT FAITH IN THAT CHAIR,
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:23.060
  • BUT THAT'S A HUMAN FAITH.
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:24.230
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:25.040
  • I'VE SAT IN CHAIRS BEFORE
  • 00:06:25.040 --> 00:06:27.130
  • AND I KNOW THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:28.090
  • BUILD CHAIRS TO BE ABLE
  • 00:06:28.090 --> 00:06:30.000
  • TO SUPPORT MY WEIGHT
  • 00:06:30.000 --> 00:06:31.170
  • AND WHEN...BEFORE I SIT
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:32.250
  • IN THE CHAIR,
  • 00:06:32.250 --> 00:06:33.100
  • I LOOK AT IT AND IF THE CHAIR
  • 00:06:33.100 --> 00:06:34.200
  • ONLY HAD THREE LEGS
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:35.260
  • INSTEAD OF FOUR LEGS
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:37.180
  • AND IF THE THING WAS WOBBLING
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:39.080
  • AND SITTING, YOU KNOW, ASKEW,
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:41.180
  • WELL, I WOULDN'T SIT
  • 00:06:41.180 --> 00:06:42.170
  • IN THAT CHAIR
  • 00:06:42.170 --> 00:06:43.240
  • WITH THAT HUMAN FAITH.
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:46.010
  • BUT WHEN YOU BELIEVE GOD
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:47.190
  • FOR SALVATION,
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:48.160
  • IT'S LIKE SITTING IN A CHAIR
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:50.010
  • THAT YOU CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:51.000
  • YOU CAN'T SEE GOD.
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:53.020
  • YOU'RE SAYING THAT YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:54.060
  • IN GOD.
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:55.190
  • YOU'RE SAYING THAT YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.250
  • THAT YOUR SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.280
  • YOU'VE NEVER SEEN A SIN.
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:07:00.100
  • YOU'VE SEEN PEOPLE COMMIT SINS,
  • 00:07:00.100 --> 00:07:02.000
  • BUT YOU...YOU KNOW, WHAT DOES
  • 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:03.050
  • A SIN LOOK LIKE?
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:05.270
  • YOU CAN SEE WHEN PEOPLE
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.040
  • ACT OUT SIN,
  • 00:07:07.040 --> 00:07:08.020
  • BUT YOU CAN'T SEE LIKE A SPOT
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:10.120
  • ON YOU OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:11.260
  • AND THEN YOU CAN'T SEE
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:12.270
  • WHEN IT'S FORGIVEN,
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:13.200
  • WHEN IT'S TAKEN AWAY.
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:15.090
  • SO, YOU'RE BELIEVING IN A GOD
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:16.180
  • THAT YOU CAN'T SEE,
  • 00:07:16.180 --> 00:07:17.150
  • YOU'RE BELIEVING IN SINS
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:18.230
  • BEING FORGIVEN,
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:19.150
  • WHICH YOU CAN'T SEE
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:20.160
  • THAT THEY ARE FORGIVEN,
  • 00:07:20.160 --> 00:07:21.260
  • YOU'RE BELIEVING
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:22.090
  • THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:07:22.090 --> 00:07:24.060
  • WHICH YOU'VE NEVER BEEN THERE
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:25.270
  • AND YOU CAN'T SEE THAT,
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.120
  • AND YET, YOU'RE BELIEVING
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:28.140
  • FOR THINGS THAT YOU CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:07:28.140 --> 00:07:30.260
  • ROMANS, CHAPTER 4, VERSE 17,
  • 00:07:30.260 --> 00:07:32.290
  • SAYS, GOD CALLS THOSE THINGS
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:35.030
  • THAT BE NOT AS THOUGH THEY WERE.
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:37.270
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:07:37.270 --> 00:07:38.120
  • GOD ISN'T LIMITED
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:40.090
  • TO JUST BELIEVING THINGS
  • 00:07:40.090 --> 00:07:41.220
  • THAT HE CAN SEE.
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:42.230
  • HE CALLED ABRAHAM
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:44.060
  • A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS
  • 00:07:44.060 --> 00:07:46.000
  • WHEN ABRAHAM DIDN'T EVEN HAVE
  • 00:07:46.000 --> 00:07:47.080
  • A CHILD YET.
  • 00:07:47.080 --> 00:07:48.070
  • THAT'S THE INSTANCE
  • 00:07:48.070 --> 00:07:49.050
  • THAT'S BEING QUOTED IN ROMANS,
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:51.070
  • CHAPTER 4.
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.150
  • SO, GOD'S KIND OF FAITH
  • 00:07:52.150 --> 00:07:54.270
  • IS NECESSARY TO BE BORN AGAIN
  • 00:07:54.270 --> 00:07:57.130
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE BELIEVING
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:07:58.110
  • FOR THINGS THAT YOU CAN'T SEE,
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:08:01.230
  • AND YOU CAN'T DO THAT
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:02.240
  • WITH JUST HUMAN FAITH.
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:05.110
  • PEOPLE SAY, WELL, IT'S FAITH
  • 00:08:05.110 --> 00:08:06.140
  • TO GET ON AN AIRPLANE
  • 00:08:06.140 --> 00:08:07.220
  • THAT YOU...YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:08.180
  • HOW AN AIRPLANE FLIES,
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:09.250
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT ALL,
  • 00:08:09.250 --> 00:08:11.030
  • YOU DON'T KNOW THE PILOT,
  • 00:08:11.030 --> 00:08:12.240
  • AND YET, YOU GET IN
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:13.190
  • THAT AIRPLANE AND YOU FLY;
  • 00:08:13.190 --> 00:08:15.110
  • THAT'S FAITH.
  • 00:08:15.110 --> 00:08:16.060
  • WELL, THAT'S HUMAN FAITH,
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:17.250
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE SEEN PLANES FLY.
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:20.010
  • YOU KNOW THAT THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:21.120
  • REGULATES THINGS.
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:23.100
  • YOU DON'T HAVE PEOPLE
  • 00:08:23.100 --> 00:08:24.120
  • FLYING THE PLANE THAT DON'T KNOW
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:25.260
  • HOW TO FLY.
  • 00:08:25.260 --> 00:08:26.210
  • YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THESE
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:27.150
  • SAFETY FEATURES.
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:28.160
  • YOU'VE GOT ALL KINDS
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:29.110
  • OF PHYSICAL THINGS
  • 00:08:29.110 --> 00:08:31.040
  • THAT YOU CAN BASE
  • 00:08:31.040 --> 00:08:31.280
  • YOUR FAITH UPON,
  • 00:08:31.280 --> 00:08:33.060
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE BELIEVING GOD
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:34.130
  • FOR SALVATION,
  • 00:08:34.130 --> 00:08:35.090
  • YOU'RE BELIEVING FOR THINGS THAT
  • 00:08:35.090 --> 00:08:36.130
  • THERE IS NO PHYSICAL PROOF OF.
  • 00:08:36.130 --> 00:08:39.030
  • SO, MY POINT IN SAYING
  • 00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:40.000
  • ALL OF THIS IS,
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:40.270
  • WHEN YOU GOT BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:42.270
  • YOU RECEIVED SUPERNATURAL FAITH,
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:45.070
  • GOD'S FAITH.
  • 00:08:45.070 --> 00:08:46.090
  • GOD GAVE YOU HIS FAITH,
  • 00:08:46.210 --> 00:08:49.210
  • AND PEOPLE SAY, WELL,
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:50.090
  • ROMANS, CHAPTER 10, VERSE 17,
  • 00:08:51.220 --> 00:08:54.020
  • SO THEN FAITH COMES BY HEARING,
  • 00:08:54.020 --> 00:08:56.020
  • AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:57.280
  • WHEN YOU HEARD THE TRUTHS
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.140
  • OF THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:08:59.140 --> 00:09:00.150
  • WHEN SOMEBODY TOLD YOU
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:01.220
  • THAT JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:04.190
  • AND HAD FORGIVEN YOUR SINS,
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.110
  • THOSE WORDS CONTAINED
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:08.150
  • HIS SUPERNATURAL FAITH.
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:10.020
  • FAITH CAME TO YOU,
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:11.110
  • AND SO, YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:09:11.110 --> 00:09:12.180
  • HAD TO TAKE HIS FAITH,
  • 00:09:12.180 --> 00:09:14.210
  • HIS SUPERNATURAL FAITH,
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.130
  • TO BELIEVE FOR HIS SALVATION.
  • 00:09:16.130 --> 00:09:18.290
  • WE WERE SO DESTITUTE
  • 00:09:18.290 --> 00:09:21.050
  • THAT WE COULDN'T EVEN GET SAVED
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:22.160
  • WITH JUST HUMAN FAITH.
  • 00:09:22.160 --> 00:09:23.220
  • WE HAD TO HAVE GOD IMPART
  • 00:09:23.220 --> 00:09:25.170
  • A SUPERNATURAL FAITH TO US.
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:28.020
  • SO, WHEN YOU GOT BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.210
  • EVERY PERSON WHO GOT BORN AGAIN
  • 00:09:29.210 --> 00:09:32.060
  • GOT BORN AGAIN
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:33.100
  • WITH GOD'S SUPERNATURAL FAITH.
  • 00:09:33.240 --> 00:09:36.240
  • LET ME READ THIS VERSE TO YOU
  • 00:09:36.240 --> 00:09:37.260
  • OUT OF ROMANS, CHAPTER 12,
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:41.000
  • AND VERSE 3.
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:42.150
  • I SAY, THROUGH THE GRACE
  • 00:09:42.150 --> 00:09:43.140
  • GIVEN UNTO ME,
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:44.180
  • TO EVERY MAN THAT IS AMONG YOU,
  • 00:09:44.180 --> 00:09:46.070
  • NOT TO THINK OF HIMSELF
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:47.120
  • MORE HIGHLY THAN HE OUGHT
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:48.190
  • TO THINK;
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:49.000
  • BUT TO THINK SOBERLY,
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:50.270
  • ACCORDING AS GOD HATH DEALT TO
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:53.060
  • EVERY MAN THE MEASURE OF FAITH.
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:57.230
  • IT DIDN'T SAY HE'S DEALT
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:09:58.240
  • TO EVERY MAN A MEASURE OF FAITH;
  • 00:09:58.240 --> 00:10:01.080
  • HE'S GIVEN SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:02.100
  • A LOT OF FAITH,
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.020
  • SOME PEOPLE A LITTLE FAITH.
  • 00:10:03.020 --> 00:10:04.230
  • NO, GOD DEALT TO EVERY MAN
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:07.190
  • THE MEASURE OF FAITH.
  • 00:10:07.190 --> 00:10:10.130
  • NOW I'M READING OUT
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:11.060
  • OF THE KING JAMES
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:12.210
  • AND I'M AWARE THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:10:12.210 --> 00:10:14.030
  • SOME TRANSLATIONS THAT SAY
  • 00:10:14.030 --> 00:10:16.120
  • WE HAVE A MEASURE OF FAITH,
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:18.210
  • BUT I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:19.200
  • THAT IS MISSING THE POINT
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:21.040
  • OF THIS.
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:21.270
  • IF YOU WERE TO TURN OVER
  • 00:10:21.270 --> 00:10:22.280
  • TO GALATIANS, CHAPTER 2,
  • 00:10:22.280 --> 00:10:24.190
  • PAUL TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:25.290
  • IN GALATIANS 2:20,
  • 00:10:25.290 --> 00:10:27.180
  • HE SAYS, I AM CRUCIFIED
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:29.030
  • WITH CHRIST:
  • 00:10:29.030 --> 00:10:29.250
  • NEVERTHELESS I LIVE;
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:30.290
  • YET NOT I, BUT CHRIST LIVETH
  • 00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:32.170
  • IN ME:
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.120
  • AND THE LIFE THAT I NOW LIVE
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:34.260
  • IN THE FLESH
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:35.110
  • I LIVE BY THE FAITH
  • 00:10:35.110 --> 00:10:37.230
  • OF THE SON OF GOD...
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:39.100
  • HE DIDN'T SAY, I'M LIVING
  • 00:10:39.100 --> 00:10:40.180
  • BY PUTTING MY HUMAN FAITH
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:43.040
  • IN THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:10:43.040 --> 00:10:44.270
  • NO, IT WAS THE FAITH
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:46.230
  • OF THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:10:46.230 --> 00:10:47.290
  • THE SAME THING I WAS JUST
  • 00:10:47.290 --> 00:10:49.030
  • TALKING ABOUT IN EPHESIANS 2:8,
  • 00:10:49.030 --> 00:10:51.190
  • WHERE WHEN YOU GOT BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.160
  • YOU WERE SAVED BY GRACE
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:54.280
  • THROUGH FAITH;
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:56.000
  • AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES...,
  • 00:10:56.000 --> 00:10:57.100
  • THAT FAITH IS NOT OF YOURSELVES,
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:10:59.020
  • IT IS A GIFT OF GOD:
  • 00:10:59.020 --> 00:11:01.200
  • NOT OF WORKS,
  • 00:11:01.200 --> 00:11:02.040
  • LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST.
  • 00:11:02.040 --> 00:11:03.260
  • GOD IMPARTED SUPERNATURAL FAITH
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:05.290
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:11:05.290 --> 00:11:06.280
  • SO, MY POINT IS,
  • 00:11:06.280 --> 00:11:08.000
  • THAT ONCE YOU GOT BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:11:08.000 --> 00:11:09.240
  • YOU'VE GOT FAITH.
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:11.080
  • YOU'VE GOT GOD'S
  • 00:11:11.080 --> 00:11:12.060
  • SUPERNATURAL FAITH.
  • 00:11:12.060 --> 00:11:13.290
  • YOU REALLY DON'T HAVE
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:15.020
  • A FAITH PROBLEM,
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:17.090
  • BUT ACCORDING TO
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:17.270
  • HEBREWS, CHAPTER 11, VERSE 1,
  • 00:11:17.290 --> 00:11:20.290
  • FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:23.000
  • HOPED FOR,
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:24.090
  • THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:26.110
  • FAITH ONLY WORKS WHEN HOPE
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:30.090
  • HAS ALREADY CONCEIVED IT,
  • 00:11:30.260 --> 00:11:33.260
  • AND I'VE ESTABLISHED
  • 00:11:33.260 --> 00:11:35.010
  • ON THE LAST FEW DAYS THAT HOPE
  • 00:11:35.010 --> 00:11:37.140
  • IS JUST A POSITIVE IMAGINATION.
  • 00:11:37.230 --> 00:11:40.230
  • WE TALKED ABOUT ABRAHAM
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:42.010
  • AS AN EXAMPLE
  • 00:11:42.010 --> 00:11:43.050
  • THAT HE NEVER SAW HIS SON DEAD.
  • 00:11:43.050 --> 00:11:45.140
  • IT SAYS IN HEBREWS, CHAPTER 11,
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:47.210
  • I BELIEVE IT'S VERSE 19,
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.110
  • THAT HE ACCOUNTED THAT GOD
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:50.200
  • WAS ABLE TO RAISE HIM UP
  • 00:11:50.200 --> 00:11:52.000
  • FROM THE DEAD;
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:52.200
  • FROM WHICH ALSO HE RECEIVED HIM
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:54.120
  • IN A FIGURE.
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.120
  • ABRAHAM NEVER SAW ISAAC DEAD.
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:11:58.140
  • HE KNEW THAT ISAAC
  • 00:11:58.140 --> 00:11:59.200
  • WAS THE PROMISED SEED.
  • 00:11:59.200 --> 00:12:01.170
  • GOD HAD SAID THAT HE WOULD
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:03.010
  • HAVE CHILDREN
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:04.020
  • AND THAT HIS CHILDREN WOULD
  • 00:12:04.020 --> 00:12:05.050
  • BE SO NUMEROUS IT WOULD BE LIKE
  • 00:12:05.050 --> 00:12:06.190
  • THE STARS IN THE SKY,
  • 00:12:06.190 --> 00:12:08.120
  • THE GRAINS OF SAND
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:09.120
  • ON THE SEASHORE,
  • 00:12:09.120 --> 00:12:10.250
  • SO WOULD HIS SEED BE,
  • 00:12:10.250 --> 00:12:12.070
  • AND SINCE ISAAC WASN'T MARRIED,
  • 00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:14.170
  • SINCE ISAAC HADN'T HAD
  • 00:12:14.170 --> 00:12:15.290
  • ANY CHILDREN,
  • 00:12:15.290 --> 00:12:16.220
  • THAT WOULD MEAN THAT ISAAC
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:17.230
  • HAD TO LIVE.
  • 00:12:17.230 --> 00:12:19.040
  • ABRAHAM NEVER SAW
  • 00:12:19.040 --> 00:12:22.030
  • IN HIS IMAGINATION ISAAC DEAD.
  • 00:12:23.070 --> 00:12:26.070
  • HE SAW ELI...ISAAC LIVING.
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:28.230
  • IF HE HAD TO,
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:29.290
  • GOD WAS GOING TO RAISE HIM
  • 00:12:29.290 --> 00:12:31.050
  • FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:12:31.050 --> 00:12:32.060
  • AND THAT'S WHAT MOTIVATED
  • 00:12:32.060 --> 00:12:33.270
  • HIS FAITH.
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.140
  • THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:12:35.140 --> 00:12:36.110
  • THAT THEY JUST ALLOW...
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:37.200
  • THEY ARE PLUGGED INTO THE WORLD.
  • 00:12:37.200 --> 00:12:40.090
  • THEY LISTEN TO THE DOUBT
  • 00:12:40.090 --> 00:12:41.190
  • AND THE UNBELIEF OF PEOPLE
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:44.210
  • AND THEY JUST GET ALL OF
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:46.060
  • THIS NEGATIVE IMAGINATION.
  • 00:12:46.060 --> 00:12:48.120
  • THEY SEE THEMSELF DYING,
  • 00:12:48.120 --> 00:12:50.030
  • THEY SEE THEMSELVES POOR,
  • 00:12:50.030 --> 00:12:51.190
  • THEY SEE THEIR MARRIAGE
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:52.240
  • FALLING APART,
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:54.190
  • AND ONCE THEY CONCEIVE
  • 00:12:54.190 --> 00:12:55.250
  • THIS IMAGE,
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.080
  • THEN THEY TRY AND BELIEVE GOD
  • 00:12:57.080 --> 00:12:58.240
  • AND SAY, IT'S SO HARD
  • 00:12:58.240 --> 00:12:59.290
  • TO BELIEVE GOD.
  • 00:12:59.290 --> 00:13:01.220
  • THE ONLY REASON
  • 00:13:01.220 --> 00:13:02.130
  • IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE GOD
  • 00:13:02.130 --> 00:13:03.230
  • IS BECAUSE YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:13:03.230 --> 00:13:06.150
  • HAS ALREADY CONCEIVED DEFEAT.
  • 00:13:07.140 --> 00:13:10.140
  • YOU SEE YOURSELF A FAILURE,
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:12.100
  • YOU SEE YOURSELF DYING,
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:13.260
  • YOU SEE YOURSELF POOR,
  • 00:13:13.260 --> 00:13:15.030
  • YOU SEE YOURSELF SINGLE,
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:16.230
  • YOUR MARRIAGE WON'T LAST.
  • 00:13:16.230 --> 00:13:19.010
  • IF THAT'S THE IMAGE
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:20.230
  • THAT YOU HAVE ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:22.130
  • WELL THEN FAITH DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:24.060
  • ANYTHING TO WORK ON.
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:25.080
  • IT'LL...ALL IT CAN DO
  • 00:13:25.080 --> 00:13:26.170
  • IS BRING FORTH
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:27.090
  • THAT NEGATIVE IMAGE.
  • 00:13:27.090 --> 00:13:29.220
  • SEE, YOU NEED TO BEGIN
  • 00:13:29.220 --> 00:13:31.030
  • TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:13:31.030 --> 00:13:33.100
  • AND MEDITATE IN THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:13:33.100 --> 00:13:35.200
  • WHICH AGAIN, PSALMS 1:2,
  • 00:13:35.200 --> 00:13:37.240
  • COMPARED WITH PSALMS 2:1,
  • 00:13:37.240 --> 00:13:39.130
  • SHOWS THAT TO MEDITATE MEANS,
  • 00:13:39.130 --> 00:13:41.080
  • TO IMAGINE.
  • 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:42.230
  • YOU NEED TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:13:42.230 --> 00:13:44.180
  • AND THOSE PROMISES
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:46.020
  • AND LAI...LET IT PAINT A PICTURE
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:48.200
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:13:48.200 --> 00:13:50.090
  • OF YOU SUCCEEDING
  • 00:13:50.090 --> 00:13:51.270
  • IN WHATEVER ENDEAVOR
  • 00:13:51.270 --> 00:13:53.190
  • GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO,
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:55.180
  • AND ONCE YOU CONCEIVE IT,
  • 00:13:55.180 --> 00:13:57.260
  • ONCE YOU GET HOPE,
  • 00:13:57.260 --> 00:14:00.070
  • THEN I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:01.220
  • YOUR FAITH WILL START TO WORK
  • 00:14:02.130 --> 00:14:05.130
  • TO BRING THAT TO PASS.
  • 00:14:05.130 --> 00:14:07.150
  • THAT'S EXACTLY THE WAY IT WORKS.
  • 00:14:07.150 --> 00:14:10.030
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS STUDYING
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:10.280
  • ALL OF THESE THINGS LAST NIGHT
  • 00:14:12.050 --> 00:14:15.050
  • IN PREPARATION
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:16.010
  • FOR MAKING THESE PROGRAMS TODAY
  • 00:14:16.010 --> 00:14:17.250
  • AND I WOKE UP AT 1:15.
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:19.290
  • MAN, I WAS SEEING THINGS.
  • 00:14:20.110 --> 00:14:23.110
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO
  • 00:14:23.110 --> 00:14:23.270
  • INTO THE DETAIL,
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:24.260
  • BECAUSE IT'S NOT COMPLETE YET.
  • 00:14:24.260 --> 00:14:26.290
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU SEE THINGS,
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:28.120
  • IT FIRST OF ALL STARTS
  • 00:14:28.120 --> 00:14:29.230
  • AND IT'S A LITTLE FUZZY
  • 00:14:29.230 --> 00:14:31.020
  • AND THE MORE YOU FOCUS ON IT,
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:32.090
  • THE CLEARER AND THE CLEARER
  • 00:14:32.090 --> 00:14:34.010
  • IT GETS.
  • 00:14:34.010 --> 00:14:34.150
  • IT'S NOT COMPLETE YET,
  • 00:14:34.150 --> 00:14:35.220
  • BUT MY POINT IS THAT I STARTED
  • 00:14:35.220 --> 00:14:38.170
  • SEEING WHAT GOD WAS TELLING ME.
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:40.230
  • I STARTED SEEING THINGS,
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:42.020
  • AND I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:14:42.020 --> 00:14:43.000
  • YOU TALK ABOUT FAITH,
  • 00:14:43.000 --> 00:14:45.020
  • TODAY MY FAITH
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.190
  • IS AT A HIGH LEVEL
  • 00:14:46.190 --> 00:14:48.030
  • FOR SEEING THESE THINGS
  • 00:14:48.030 --> 00:14:49.240
  • THAT GOD HAD SHOWN ME
  • 00:14:49.240 --> 00:14:50.290
  • IN MY HEART COME TO PASS.
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:53.070
  • I WAS UP FROM 1:00...1:15
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:56.000
  • IN THE MORNING
  • 00:14:56.000 --> 00:14:57.050
  • UNTIL...I HADN'T GONE TO SLEEP
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:14:59.190
  • ALL THIS TIME,
  • 00:14:59.190 --> 00:15:00.080
  • BECAUSE, MAN, FAITH IS JUST
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:03.010
  • FLOWING ON THE INSIDE OF ME.
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:05.130
  • AGAIN, I WISHED I HAD BETTER
  • 00:15:05.130 --> 00:15:06.220
  • WORDS TO DESCRIBE
  • 00:15:06.220 --> 00:15:07.240
  • WHAT I'M SAYING,
  • 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:09.190
  • BUT HOPE IS A POSITIVE
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:12.150
  • IMAGINATION
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:14.050
  • AND ONCE YOU BEGIN TO START
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:16.250
  • SEEING SOMETHING IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.160
  • ONCE YOU SEEK GOD,
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:20.140
  • TAKE THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:15:20.140 --> 00:15:21.160
  • YOU RECEIVE A PROMISE,
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:22.290
  • LET IT PAINT A PICTURE
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:24.030
  • ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:15:24.030 --> 00:15:25.150
  • AND ONCE YOU SEE IT,
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:26.290
  • IF YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:28.100
  • EVER CONCEIVES IT,
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:31.140
  • THEN I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:32.280
  • IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:34.130
  • UNTIL YOUR FAITH KICKS IN
  • 00:15:34.130 --> 00:15:36.120
  • AND FAITH WILL BEGIN TO START
  • 00:15:36.120 --> 00:15:38.280
  • PROVIDING SUBSTANCE OF THINGS
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:41.100
  • THAT WERE HOPED FOR.
  • 00:15:41.100 --> 00:15:44.090
  • IT WILL BRING INTO EVIDENCE,
  • 00:15:44.090 --> 00:15:45.270
  • INTO PHYSICAL REALITY,
  • 00:15:45.270 --> 00:15:48.030
  • THINGS THAT ARE NOT SEEN.
  • 00:15:48.030 --> 00:15:49.260
  • YOU CAN'T SEE THEM NOW,
  • 00:15:49.260 --> 00:15:50.230
  • BUT YOU WILL SEE THEM,
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:51.220
  • BECAUSE FAITH WILL MAKE IT
  • 00:15:51.220 --> 00:15:54.210
  • REALITY.
  • 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:55.270
  • LET ME USE THIS VERSE,
  • 00:15:55.270 --> 00:15:56.210
  • PROVERBS, CHAPTER 29,
  • 00:15:56.210 --> 00:15:58.290
  • AND VERSE 18.
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.210
  • IT SAYS, WHERE THERE
  • 00:16:00.210 --> 00:16:01.150
  • IS NO VISION,
  • 00:16:01.150 --> 00:16:02.280
  • THE PEOPLE PERISH:
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.150
  • BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW,
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:06.120
  • HAPPY IS HE.
  • 00:16:06.120 --> 00:16:08.090
  • WHERE THERE IS NO VISION;
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:09.110
  • THIS ISN'T TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:10.130
  • YOUR PHYSICAL VISION,
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:12.010
  • YOUR PHYSICAL EYES.
  • 00:16:12.010 --> 00:16:13.250
  • THIS ISN'T SAYING
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:14.240
  • THAT IF YOU'RE BLIND
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:16.120
  • THAT YOU'RE GOING TO PERISH.
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:17.200
  • THIS IS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:16:17.200 --> 00:16:18.210
  • SPIRITUAL EYESIGHT,
  • 00:16:18.210 --> 00:16:20.030
  • WHICH IS EXACTLY THE THING
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:21.130
  • THAT I'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:22.230
  • FOR NEARLY THREE WEEKS,
  • 00:16:22.230 --> 00:16:24.170
  • TALKING ABOUT IMAGINATION,
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:26.160
  • YOUR ABILITY TO SEE
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:27.290
  • WITH YOUR HEART.
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:29.150
  • IF YOU CAN'T SEE SOMETHING
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:31.120
  • WITH YOUR HEART,
  • 00:16:31.120 --> 00:16:31.280
  • IF THERE ISN'T SPIRITUAL VISION,
  • 00:16:32.220 --> 00:16:35.220
  • THEN YOU'RE GOING TO PERISH.
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:38.150
  • BUT WHEN YOU GET THAT SPIRITUAL
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:40.020
  • VISION,
  • 00:16:40.020 --> 00:16:41.090
  • WHEN YOU TAKE THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:42.210
  • AND YOU SEE THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:16:42.210 --> 00:16:44.280
  • WORKING IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:16:44.280 --> 00:16:46.160
  • I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:16:46.160 --> 00:16:47.170
  • IT WILL MAKE FAITH
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:49.290
  • PRODUCE EVIDENCE FOR SOMETHING
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:53.050
  • THAT IS HOPED FOR.
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:54.180
  • THAT HOPE WILL ACTIVATE
  • 00:16:54.180 --> 00:16:56.220
  • YOUR FAITH
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:16:57.170
  • AND MAKE IT KICK IN
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:16:59.090
  • AND START WORKING FOR YOU
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:00.270
  • INSTEAD OF AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:03.070
  • I TELL YOU, THIS IS JUST
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:04.030
  • SO POWERFUL.
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:06.050
  • THIS IS...THIS IS THE WAY
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.100
  • THAT MY LIFE IS WORKING.
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:10.070
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN THE LORD
  • 00:17:10.070 --> 00:17:10.290
  • FIRST TOUCHED MY LIFE IN 1968;
  • 00:17:11.200 --> 00:17:14.200
  • NOW I WAS BORN AGAIN IN '58
  • 00:17:14.200 --> 00:17:17.140
  • AT THE AGE OF EIGHT YEARS OLD.
  • 00:17:17.140 --> 00:17:20.090
  • BUT WHEN I....IN '68,
  • 00:17:20.090 --> 00:17:22.290
  • WHEN I WAS 18 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:17:22.290 --> 00:17:25.120
  • I HAD AN ENCOUNTER WHERE GOD
  • 00:17:25.120 --> 00:17:27.040
  • JUST REVEALED HIS LOVE TO ME
  • 00:17:27.040 --> 00:17:29.240
  • AND I KNEW IN MY HEART
  • 00:17:29.240 --> 00:17:32.000
  • THAT GOD HAD CALLED ME
  • 00:17:32.000 --> 00:17:33.100
  • INTO THE MINISTRY
  • 00:17:33.100 --> 00:17:34.090
  • AND I STARTED SEEKING HIM ABOUT,
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:37.120
  • GOD, WHAT KIND OF MINISTRY?
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:39.150
  • AT FIRST I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:17:39.150 --> 00:17:40.200
  • IF IT WAS GOING TO BE A PASTOR.
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:42.250
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IF I WAS GOING TO
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:43.220
  • BE A TEACHER,
  • 00:17:43.220 --> 00:17:44.130
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IF I WAS GOING TO
  • 00:17:44.130 --> 00:17:45.060
  • BE AN EVANGELIST,
  • 00:17:45.060 --> 00:17:46.040
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IF I WAS GOING TO
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:46.270
  • BE A MISSIONARY.
  • 00:17:46.270 --> 00:17:47.230
  • I DIDN'T HAVE ANY CLUE.
  • 00:17:47.230 --> 00:17:48.290
  • I JUST KNEW THAT GOD
  • 00:17:48.290 --> 00:17:50.270
  • HAD CALLED ME
  • 00:17:50.270 --> 00:17:51.220
  • INTO SOME TYPE OF MINISTRY,
  • 00:17:51.220 --> 00:17:53.260
  • AND AS I SOUGHT HIM
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:55.210
  • AND STUDIED THE WORD,
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:58.190
  • MAN, I'VE GOT AN ENTIRE TEACHING
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:17:59.240
  • ON THIS
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:00.120
  • ON HOW TO FIND, FOLLOW
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:02.000
  • AND FULFILL GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:03.230
  • BUT AS THE MORE I SOUGHT GOD,
  • 00:18:03.230 --> 00:18:05.070
  • GOD BEGAN TO JUST
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:06.090
  • NARROW THE VISION
  • 00:18:06.090 --> 00:18:08.090
  • AND START SHOWING ME
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:09.120
  • EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTED ME TO DO,
  • 00:18:09.120 --> 00:18:12.100
  • AND SO HERE I AM 51 YEARS LATER
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:15.080
  • AND NOW ALL OF THE THINGS
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:16.240
  • THAT WE'RE SEEING
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:18.170
  • IN OUR MINISTRY,
  • 00:18:18.170 --> 00:18:20.000
  • DID YOU KNOW I SAW THESE THINGS
  • 00:18:20.000 --> 00:18:21.090
  • DECADES AGO.
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:23.130
  • I SAW THESE THINGS HAPPENING
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:25.110
  • DECADES AGO.
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:28.160
  • MAN, I DON'T HAVE THE WORDS
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:30.060
  • TO EXPLAIN THIS ANY BETTER THAN
  • 00:18:30.060 --> 00:18:31.220
  • WHAT I'M DOING,
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:33.200
  • BUT THERE ARE SOME OF YOU
  • 00:18:33.200 --> 00:18:34.220
  • THAT ARE PRAYING FOR GOD
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:36.000
  • TO OPEN UP DOORS,
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:37.210
  • GOD TO MOVE MOUNTAINS,
  • 00:18:37.210 --> 00:18:39.130
  • GOD TO PROVIDE NEEDS,
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:41.290
  • AND YET, YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT.
  • 00:18:41.290 --> 00:18:44.090
  • YOU DON'T HAVE A HOPE,
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:46.140
  • AND I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:18:46.140 --> 00:18:47.040
  • UNTIL YOU GET HOPE,
  • 00:18:47.040 --> 00:18:48.200
  • FAITH JUST SITS THERE IDLE.
  • 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:51.200
  • YOU'VE GOT FAITH.
  • 00:18:51.200 --> 00:18:52.270
  • YOU'VE GOT THE SAME FAITH
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:55.010
  • THAT JESUS USED.
  • 00:18:55.010 --> 00:18:56.230
  • YOU'VE GOT THE FAITH OF GOD
  • 00:18:56.230 --> 00:18:59.000
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU,
  • 00:18:59.000 --> 00:19:00.050
  • BUT THAT FAITH HAS TO
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:01.200
  • BE ACTIVATED BY HOPE,
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:04.060
  • WHICH IS A POSITIVE IMAGINATION.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:06.150
  • YOU'VE GOT TO START
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:07.200
  • CONCEIVING THINGS
  • 00:19:07.200 --> 00:19:09.270
  • IN YOUR IMAGINATION.
  • 00:19:09.270 --> 00:19:11.070
  • YOU'VE GOT TO SEE IT
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:12.060
  • ON THE INSIDE BEFORE YOU SEE IT
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:14.220
  • ON THE OUTSIDE
  • 00:19:14.220 --> 00:19:16.100
  • AND THIS IS WHERE SO MANY OF YOU
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:18.240
  • ARE MISSING IT.
  • 00:19:18.240 --> 00:19:20.070
  • I'M NOT SAYING THAT
  • 00:19:20.070 --> 00:19:20.270
  • IN A CONDEMNING WAY.
  • 00:19:20.270 --> 00:19:21.270
  • I'M JUST SAYING THAT I KNOW
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:23.060
  • WHAT IT'S DONE IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:24.170
  • I'VE SEEN OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:25.260
  • ONCE THEY BEGIN TO START
  • 00:19:25.260 --> 00:19:27.230
  • GETTING A VISION ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:19:27.230 --> 00:19:29.230
  • THEY SEE WHAT GOD WANTS THEM
  • 00:19:29.230 --> 00:19:31.210
  • TO DO,
  • 00:19:31.210 --> 00:19:32.200
  • I'VE SEEN...I'VE SEEN THIS
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:34.010
  • HAPPEN IN THOUSANDS
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:35.090
  • AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:36.270
  • AND I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:37.150
  • IT'LL WORK FOR YOU.
  • 00:19:37.150 --> 00:19:39.160
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE THIS WORD
  • 00:19:39.160 --> 00:19:42.110
  • AND LET IT PAINT A PICTURE
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:43.290
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:19:43.290 --> 00:19:45.000
  • OF WHO YOU ARE,
  • 00:19:45.000 --> 00:19:46.250
  • WHAT YOUR POTENTIAL IS,
  • 00:19:46.250 --> 00:19:49.000
  • WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO,
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:51.120
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO CONCEIVE IT
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:53.030
  • FIRST OF ALL
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:54.070
  • IN YOUR IMAGINATION,
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:56.090
  • AND THEN IT WILL BECOME
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:58.030
  • PHYSICAL REALITY.
  • 00:19:58.130 --> 00:20:01.130
  • MAN, THAT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:03.110
  • THIS IS POWERFUL,
  • 00:20:03.110 --> 00:20:04.180
  • AND THIS IS WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:20:04.180 --> 00:20:05.060
  • TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:05.290
  • SO, IF THERE ISN'T A VISION
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:08.240
  • ON THE INSIDE OF YOU,
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:10.150
  • THE PEOPLE PERISH,
  • 00:20:10.150 --> 00:20:12.220
  • AND I'M JUST TELLING YOU
  • 00:20:12.220 --> 00:20:13.180
  • THAT THERE ARE SOME OF YOU
  • 00:20:13.180 --> 00:20:14.160
  • THAT ARE PERISHING
  • 00:20:14.160 --> 00:20:15.110
  • AND YOU CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:16.190
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN ASKING GOD
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:17.270
  • FOR DELIVERANCE,
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:19.180
  • YOU'VE BEEN PRAYING,
  • 00:20:19.180 --> 00:20:20.210
  • YOU DESIRE IT,
  • 00:20:20.210 --> 00:20:21.230
  • YOU'RE DESPERATE.
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:22.220
  • THERE IS NO DOUBT
  • 00:20:22.220 --> 00:20:23.140
  • THAT YOU NEED IT,
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:24.160
  • THAT'S NOT THE QUESTION,
  • 00:20:24.160 --> 00:20:26.130
  • AND YOU JUST CAN'T
  • 00:20:26.130 --> 00:20:27.000
  • UNDERSTAND WHY.
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:28.110
  • IT'S BECAUSE THERE ISN'T
  • 00:20:28.110 --> 00:20:29.050
  • ANY VISION.
  • 00:20:29.050 --> 00:20:30.180
  • YOU HAVEN'T, IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:32.100
  • YOU HAVEN'T SEEN WHAT GOD
  • 00:20:32.100 --> 00:20:34.270
  • HAS PROMISED COMING TO PASS,
  • 00:20:34.270 --> 00:20:37.060
  • AND SO, WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
  • 00:20:37.060 --> 00:20:38.080
  • IS YOU NEED TO STICK YOUR NOSE
  • 00:20:38.080 --> 00:20:40.060
  • IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:20:40.060 --> 00:20:42.030
  • GET OUT OF FACEBOOK
  • 00:20:42.030 --> 00:20:44.010
  • AND PUT YOUR FACE IN THE BOOK
  • 00:20:44.010 --> 00:20:46.190
  • AND YOU NEED TO START MEDITATING
  • 00:20:46.190 --> 00:20:48.260
  • ON THIS
  • 00:20:48.260 --> 00:20:49.180
  • AND STUDYING THE WORD
  • 00:20:49.180 --> 00:20:51.010
  • UNTIL THE WORD SPEAKS TO YOU
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:53.020
  • AND GOD SHOWS YOU THINGS
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:54.260
  • AND THEN YOU START MEDITATING
  • 00:20:54.260 --> 00:20:57.000
  • ON IT USING YOUR IMAGINATION
  • 00:20:57.000 --> 00:20:58.280
  • UNTIL YOU SEE IT COMING TO PASS,
  • 00:20:59.140 --> 00:21:02.160
  • AND ONCE YOU DO ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:21:02.160 --> 00:21:03.260
  • I GUARANTEE YOU,
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:04.220
  • ONCE YOU SEE IT ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:21:04.220 --> 00:21:06.250
  • YOUR FAITH WILL IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:21:06.290 --> 00:21:09.290
  • START WORKING
  • 00:21:09.290 --> 00:21:11.070
  • TO BRING INTO EVIDENCE
  • 00:21:11.070 --> 00:21:13.110
  • THOSE THINGS THAT ARE HOPED FOR.
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:16.080
  • THIS IS THE VERY THING
  • 00:21:16.080 --> 00:21:17.100
  • THAT IS MISSING.
  • 00:21:17.100 --> 00:21:18.140
  • WE'VE PUT DOWN HOPE.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.090
  • WE'VE TOLD PEOPLE BEFORE,
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:21.260
  • YOU KNOW, AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:21:21.260 --> 00:21:22.190
  • ARE YOU...ARE YOU HEALED?
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:24.020
  • AND THEY SAY, WELL, I HOPE SO,
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:26.070
  • AND WE CRITICIZE HOPE.
  • 00:21:26.070 --> 00:21:27.210
  • I DO ADMIT THAT HOPE IS NOT
  • 00:21:27.210 --> 00:21:29.140
  • THE END RESULT.
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:31.050
  • WE ARE ULTIMATELY WANTING TO SEE
  • 00:21:31.050 --> 00:21:33.070
  • THE PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION OF,
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:35.020
  • SAY, HEALING OR PROSPERITY
  • 00:21:35.020 --> 00:21:36.220
  • OR WHATEVER,
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:37.240
  • AND SO, HOPE ISN'T THE VICTORY
  • 00:21:37.240 --> 00:21:39.290
  • THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD,
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:41.220
  • BUT HOPE IS WHAT ACTIVATES FAITH
  • 00:21:42.070 --> 00:21:45.070
  • WHICH IS THE VICTORY
  • 00:21:45.070 --> 00:21:46.210
  • THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD,
  • 00:21:46.210 --> 00:21:48.040
  • AND SO SOME OF YOU
  • 00:21:48.040 --> 00:21:48.290
  • AREN'T TO A PLACE
  • 00:21:48.290 --> 00:21:49.220
  • TO WHERE YOU CAN BELIEVE
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:51.110
  • FOR HEALING,
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:52.060
  • BELIEVE FOR PROSPERITY,
  • 00:21:52.060 --> 00:21:54.030
