  • - female announcer: Excuses may
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.290
  • be the only thing keeping you
  • 00:00:01.290 --> 00:00:03.020
  • from who God has called you
  • 00:00:03.020 --> 00:00:04.000
  • to be.
  • 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:04.230
  • In his new DVD message,
  • 00:00:04.230 --> 00:00:06.000
  • Pastor Bil teaches us
  • 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:06.290
  • how to overcome
  • 00:00:06.290 --> 00:00:07.220
  • the most common excuses
  • 00:00:07.220 --> 00:00:09.000
  • - Bil: You see God what
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:13.060
  • he speaks over you is the truth.
  • 00:00:13.060 --> 00:00:14.170
  • Don't let the devil label you
  • 00:00:14.170 --> 00:00:15.240
  • because a label becomes a libel,
  • 00:00:15.240 --> 00:00:17.130
  • it becomes a lie.
  • 00:00:17.130 --> 00:00:18.160
  • It's not what the devil says
  • 00:00:18.160 --> 00:00:19.290
  • you are or what you have done
  • 00:00:19.290 --> 00:00:21.180
  • that matters.
  • 00:00:21.180 --> 00:00:22.050
  • It's what God says you are
  • 00:00:22.050 --> 00:00:23.110
  • and he says you're his child
  • 00:00:23.110 --> 00:00:25.030

  • call 855-357-4422
  • 00:00:49.060 --> 00:00:52.050
  • - Bil: All you have to do is
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:00:59.020
  • say one name.
  • 00:00:59.020 --> 00:01:01.240
  • One name is above every name.
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:03.150
  • That's how powerful that name is
  • 00:01:03.150 --> 00:01:05.110
  • and the demons run, because they
  • 00:01:05.110 --> 00:01:07.210
  • know they're defeated.
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:09.200
  • It's really true.
  • 00:01:09.200 --> 00:01:10.180
  • - Bil: You are the church
  • 00:01:20.290 --> 00:01:22.090
  • - Bil: You're protected.
  • 00:01:28.070 --> 00:01:29.130
  • You've got angels fighting
  • 00:01:29.130 --> 00:01:31.190
  • on your behalf and it's good to
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:33.250
  • know that, and so we're thankful
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:35.090
  • for that.
  • 00:01:35.090 --> 00:01:36.030
  • And so, let me give you
  • 00:01:36.030 --> 00:01:36.230
  • something.
  • 00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:37.140
  • I told you I was gonna mention
  • 00:01:37.140 --> 00:01:38.060
  • this today.
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:39.020
  • Last week I mentioned--
  • 00:01:39.020 --> 00:01:39.260
  • I promised you this.
  • 00:01:39.260 --> 00:01:40.200
  • So, this is something that I say
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:43.090
  • when I sense evil
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:44.070
  • in my presence, okay?
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:46.030
  • This may sound funny to you
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:46.280
  • or even crazy, but this has been
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:48.280
  • corroborated with other people
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:51.090
  • who have seen
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.020
  • the Lord's experiences.
  • 00:01:52.020 --> 00:01:52.280
  • In fact, I get night dreams
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:54.070
  • or night terrors they call them.
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:01:56.040
  • I get them really bad but when
  • 00:01:56.040 --> 00:01:57.130
  • I get them, they're very evil.
  • 00:01:57.130 --> 00:01:58.240
  • And so, in fact,
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:00.020
  • my wife one time years ago,
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:01.080
  • I mean, like over a decade ago
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:02.050
  • she said,
  • 00:02:02.050 --> 00:02:03.020
  • "Tell me what your dream was."
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:03.200
  • And I began to tell her
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:04.100
  • and it scared her so bad,
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:05.050
  • she's always told me,
  • 00:02:05.050 --> 00:02:05.260
  • "Never tell me again,"
  • 00:02:05.260 --> 00:02:07.130
  • 'cause it was terrifying to her
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:08.240
  • 'cause it's literally demonic.
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:10.110
  • And so, she said,
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:11.040
  • "Describe it to me,"
  • 00:02:11.040 --> 00:02:11.240
  • and I made the mistake
  • 00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:13.000
  • of taking a moment and actually
  • 00:02:13.000 --> 00:02:13.270
  • describing what I see and what
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:15.140
  • I'm--and she--it terrified her
  • 00:02:15.140 --> 00:02:17.030
  • so I don't share that.
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:18.240
  • But I'm not gonna tell you
  • 00:02:18.240 --> 00:02:19.250
  • either 'cause I don't--
  • 00:02:19.250 --> 00:02:20.200
  • I want you to sleep at night.
  • 00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:22.050
  • But I will tell you this,
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:23.030
  • that it's very real.
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.180
  • In fact, I was talking with
  • 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:25.130
  • a pastor friend of mine named
  • 00:02:25.130 --> 00:02:26.110
  • Mark Driscoll.
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:27.020
  • He's spoken here one time
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:28.090
  • and Mark and I have been friends
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:29.060
  • for years.
  • 00:02:29.060 --> 00:02:29.280
  • And we were talking one time
  • 00:02:29.280 --> 00:02:30.190
  • about this and after he spoke
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:31.150
  • here, we went and we had dinner.
  • 00:02:31.150 --> 00:02:32.180
  • We're talking, I said,
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:33.110
  • "This sounds crazy."
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:34.210
  • But it somehow came up
  • 00:02:34.210 --> 00:02:35.140
  • about evil and the demons.
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:36.180
  • And I said, "I have this crazy
  • 00:02:36.180 --> 00:02:37.190
  • thing that happens to me,"
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:39.030
  • and when I began to describe it,
  • 00:02:39.030 --> 00:02:40.040
  • he got emboldened and
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:41.010
  • he looked at me and he was like,
  • 00:02:41.010 --> 00:02:42.000
  • "I've had the exact same thing."
  • 00:02:42.000 --> 00:02:43.240
  • I said, "Are you kidding me?"
  • 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:44.150
  • He goes, "I have it exactly
  • 00:02:44.150 --> 00:02:46.080
  • as you described."
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:47.120
  • I was like, wow.
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:49.090
  • I've talked to other spiritual
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:50.040
  • leaders.
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:50.240
  • I've talked to other pastors and
  • 00:02:50.240 --> 00:02:51.170
  • leaders or organizations that
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:54.030
  • are trying to good for the Lord
  • 00:02:54.030 --> 00:02:55.030
  • and they have very similar
  • 00:02:55.030 --> 00:02:56.100
  • experiences.
  • 00:02:56.100 --> 00:02:57.110
  • I'm like, wow.
  • 00:02:57.110 --> 00:02:58.050
  • This is crazy.
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:02:59.150
  • Here's the thing about
  • 00:02:59.150 --> 00:03:00.090
  • the devil, he's powerful
  • 00:03:00.090 --> 00:03:02.020
  • and he's really smart.
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:03.030
  • He just uses the same tactics
  • 00:03:03.030 --> 00:03:04.010
  • on everyone.
  • 00:03:04.010 --> 00:03:05.230
  • The good news about that is we
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:06.260
  • know his playbook so you can
  • 00:03:06.260 --> 00:03:08.150
  • defeat him 'cause you know
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:09.240
  • his playbook.
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:10.290
  • That's you how defeat him,
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:11.270
  • in fact.
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:12.230
  • And so, basically this is what
  • 00:03:12.230 --> 00:03:14.050
  • he would do to me at night.
  • 00:03:14.050 --> 00:03:15.170
  • He still does this sometimes
  • 00:03:15.170 --> 00:03:16.110
  • to me.
  • 00:03:16.110 --> 00:03:17.050
  • And so, I'll be asleep.
  • 00:03:17.050 --> 00:03:18.170
  • In fact, when you're an altered
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:19.180
  • state is when the devil attacks
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.190
  • you the most.
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:21.140
  • You should think about
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:22.040
  • that before you do some drugs,
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:23.110
  • by the way, 'cause that's when
  • 00:03:23.110 --> 00:03:24.270
  • you get attacked the most is
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:25.280
  • when you're in an altered state.
  • 00:03:25.280 --> 00:03:27.220
  • More on that next week.
  • 00:03:27.220 --> 00:03:29.050
  • But I will tell you this, when
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:30.030
  • I'm asleep and all of a sudden
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:31.230
  • I have this dream--and I'll just
  • 00:03:31.230 --> 00:03:33.130
  • have crazy dreams like everyone
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:34.020
  • just, you know, things that make
  • 00:03:34.020 --> 00:03:34.260
  • no sense.
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:35.260
  • You know, I had all that too.
  • 00:03:35.260 --> 00:03:36.260
  • But then all of a sudden,
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:37.230
  • it turns evil, very evil,
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:39.220
  • and I sense that someone
  • 00:03:39.220 --> 00:03:40.150
  • is literally on top of me,
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:41.130
  • holding me down,
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:42.050
  • pinning me down,
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:42.270
  • trying to cover my mouth,
  • 00:03:42.270 --> 00:03:43.210
  • trying to push me down,
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:44.250
  • and trying to kill me.
  • 00:03:44.250 --> 00:03:46.210
  • And when this happens, I find
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:48.290
  • myself trying to say "Jesus"
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:50.260
  • and I can't 'cause I'm asleep.
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:52.180
  • I'm literally going--
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:56.050
  • and I'm trying to say Jesus
  • 00:03:56.050 --> 00:03:57.110
  • but I'm asleep.
  • 00:03:57.110 --> 00:03:58.270
  • And so I'm literally trying--
  • 00:03:58.270 --> 00:04:00.150
  • I end up doing this in my sleep
  • 00:04:00.150 --> 00:04:01.230
  • 'cause I'm trying to wake up
  • 00:04:01.230 --> 00:04:02.210
  • my wife saying,
  • 00:04:02.210 --> 00:04:03.190
  • "Please, wake me up,"
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:05.150
  • 'cause I know if I can just say
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:06.160
  • "Jesus," it'll go away.
  • 00:04:06.160 --> 00:04:09.000
  • And so, she knows, having been
  • 00:04:09.000 --> 00:04:10.220
  • married to me for so many years,
  • 00:04:10.220 --> 00:04:11.240
  • she knows to grab me
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:12.180
  • and say, "Bil, wake up."
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:13.260
  • And she knows immediately I say,
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:14.250
  • "Jesus, help me," and as soon as
  • 00:04:14.250 --> 00:04:16.100
  • I say "Jesus," the demon goes.
  • 00:04:16.100 --> 00:04:18.240
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:04:18.240 --> 00:04:21.090
  • So, I was telling Pastor Mark
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:23.240
  • about this and he goes, "Oh man,
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:24.250
  • I've had the exact same thing."
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:25.250
  • And he said, "But what happened
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:26.230
  • to me was I had it so strong
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:28.010
  • one night and my wife woke me up
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:29.260
  • 'cause I was panicking.
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:30.230
  • I was freaking out.
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:31.110
  • I felt like someone was on top
  • 00:04:31.110 --> 00:04:32.120
  • of me literally weighing me
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:33.150
  • down.
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:34.020
  • I felt like they were beating me
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:35.010
  • up.
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:35.260
  • And I was literally trying to
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:36.290
  • say 'Jesus' and I was woken up
  • 00:04:36.290 --> 00:04:38.070
  • finally by my wife and I said,
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:39.110
  • 'Jesus' and cast out the demon.
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:40.150
  • And I went and I looked
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:42.010
  • in the mirror and there were
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:42.270
  • bruises all my chest."
  • 00:04:42.270 --> 00:04:45.200
  • This is real stuff, guys.
  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:46.250
  • It really happens.
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:48.010
  • But I wanna remind you that all
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:49.010
  • you have to do is say one name.
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:52.140
  • One name is above every name.
  • 00:04:52.140 --> 00:04:54.010
  • That's how powerful that name
  • 00:04:54.010 --> 00:04:55.020
  • is and the demons run because
  • 00:04:55.080 --> 00:04:58.080
  • they know they're defeated.
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:04:59.180
  • It's really true.
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:01.070
  • It's really true.
  • 00:05:01.070 --> 00:05:02.290
  • So, here is what I say
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:05.040
  • when I sense evil.
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:05.280
  • You ever walked in a room
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:06.210
  • and just sensed evil?
  • 00:05:06.210 --> 00:05:08.100
  • Raise your hand if you walked
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:09.010
  • in a room and sensed evil.
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:09.250
  • Hold your hand up high
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:10.220
  • so people--so you know
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:11.120
  • you're not crazy.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.070
  • Look around and see all
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:13.010
  • the people that also experienced
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:13.210
  • the same.
  • 00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:14.110
  • Either that or we're all crazy.
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:15.060
  • I'm not sure, one, right?
  • 00:05:15.060 --> 00:05:17.210
  • But no, but the reality is that
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:18.210
  • you--I know a guy who would tell
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:19.260
  • me that he'd go into a club--
  • 00:05:19.260 --> 00:05:21.010
  • I don't recommend that,
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:22.020
  • by the way.
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:23.090
  • And he said, "I'm in a club
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:24.160
  • and when I'm in there,
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:25.150
  • all of a sudden,
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:26.030
  • I go to the back of room
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:27.010
  • and I'm hanging out
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:27.200
  • and having a good time.
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:28.180
  • I think I'm having a good time
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:29.080
  • and I literally sense evil and
  • 00:05:29.080 --> 00:05:30.020
  • I realize there's more going on
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:31.010
  • in this club."
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:31.220
  • And I just say,
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:32.140
  • "You better believe there is."
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:33.290
  • And so, you know,
  • 00:05:33.290 --> 00:05:34.220
  • that's a congregant--
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:35.180
  • a congregation of people
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.070
  • all trying collectively together
  • 00:05:37.070 --> 00:05:39.160
  • to do things that don't
  • 00:05:39.160 --> 00:05:40.170
  • honor God and, of course,
  • 00:05:40.170 --> 00:05:41.180
  • evil's there.
  • 00:05:41.180 --> 00:05:43.040
  • And so, you know?
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.050
  • Don't get me wrong,
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:44.290
  • evil can be in this house too.
  • 00:05:44.290 --> 00:05:46.220
  • Evil can come to church.
  • 00:05:46.220 --> 00:05:49.130
  • Don't think for a second
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:50.050
  • it doesn't.
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:52.000
  • And how do you think division
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:52.260
  • happens in the church?
  • 00:05:52.260 --> 00:05:54.160
  • How do you think gossip
  • 00:05:54.160 --> 00:05:55.120
  • really happens?
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:56.060
  • Are you being used of the devil
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:57.010
  • right now?
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:59.080
  • See, here's--let me tell you
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:00.020
  • something else about the devil.
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:00.230
  • He doesn't care if you worship
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:01.120
  • him at all.
  • 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:01.280
  • If you worship him, that's fine.
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:02.180
  • He's cool with that
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:04.080
  • but he really doesn't care
  • 00:06:04.080 --> 00:06:04.250
  • that you worship him.
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:05.100
  • He just wants to make sure
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:05.260
  • that you don't obey God.
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:07.010
  • He definitely wants to make sure
  • 00:06:07.010 --> 00:06:08.020
  • that you're not a witness.
  • 00:06:08.020 --> 00:06:08.290
  • He wants to make sure you
  • 00:06:08.290 --> 00:06:09.170
  • don't give to the church 'cause
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:10.100
  • then we can advance
  • 00:06:10.100 --> 00:06:10.290
  • the gospel further.
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:11.200
  • No, don't give.
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:12.130
  • And don't serve.
  • 00:06:12.130 --> 00:06:13.170
  • And by all means don't bring
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:14.150
  • anybody or pray.
  • 00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:15.270
  • He wants to make sure you
  • 00:06:15.270 --> 00:06:16.220
  • don't obey God in any area and
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.280
  • as long as you're doing that,
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:18.260
  • he's pleased with you.
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:20.260
  • Just let me ask you something,
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:21.150
  • you may not be worshiping,
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:22.100
  • but are you pleasing him?
  • 00:06:22.100 --> 00:06:25.040
  • Are you pleasing God today
  • 00:06:25.040 --> 00:06:26.020
  • or are you pleasing the devil
  • 00:06:26.020 --> 00:06:27.010
  • today?
  • 00:06:27.010 --> 00:06:28.080
  • Wow.
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:29.220
  • That's a reality check,
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:30.110
  • isn't it?
  • 00:06:30.110 --> 00:06:31.120
  • It's like, "Oh wow.
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:32.260
  • So, you're saying when I don't
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:33.210
  • do anything for God,
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:36.140
  • you're pleasing the devil."
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:38.230
  • I mean, you may not be
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:39.170
  • worshiping him, but you're
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:41.100
  • making him pretty happy.
  • 00:06:41.100 --> 00:06:43.050
  • I mean, look, all I'm trying to
  • 00:06:43.050 --> 00:06:43.290
  • say is like when we played the
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:45.030
  • Patriots, when my team played
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:47.000
  • the Patriots, I was thrilled
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:48.090
  • that Tom Brady wasn't playing.
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:50.100
  • I was like, sweet.
  • 00:06:50.100 --> 00:06:51.180
  • That's one less threat.
  • 00:06:51.180 --> 00:06:52.190
  • Now, they still whooped us
  • 00:06:52.190 --> 00:06:53.230
  • but the point is--they totally
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:57.070
  • whooped us but the point is is
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:59.110
  • that I was like, I was--so, the
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:00.250
  • devil is great with you having
  • 00:07:00.250 --> 00:07:02.190
  • all your gifts as long as you
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:03.220
  • don't hit the field.
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:06.030
  • So, you can have all kinds of
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:07.000
  • talent and ability and all kinds
  • 00:07:07.000 --> 00:07:08.090
  • of opportunity to make
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:09.110
  • a difference as long you're not
  • 00:07:09.110 --> 00:07:10.100
  • doing it, he's good with you.
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:13.210
  • Something to think about it,
  • 00:07:13.210 --> 00:07:14.130
  • isn't it?
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:15.120
  • Wow.
  • 00:07:15.120 --> 00:07:16.210
  • We may be really powerful
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:17.270
  • and really gifted but we're when
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:19.010
  • neutralized when we don't use
  • 00:07:19.010 --> 00:07:20.190
  • our gifts for the Lord.
  • 00:07:20.190 --> 00:07:22.030
  • That's a big deal.
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:22.210
  • So, when I sense evil in a room,
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:24.150
  • like if I'm going to bed
  • 00:07:24.150 --> 00:07:25.090
  • and I just sense there's evil
  • 00:07:25.090 --> 00:07:26.080
  • in the room, I pray this--
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:27.190
  • I pray to God.
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:28.260
  • Before I pray, I say something
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:29.230
  • out loud.
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:30.090
  • I don't pray this 'cause I'm not
  • 00:07:30.090 --> 00:07:31.080
  • praying a demon,
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:32.140
  • but I say it out loud.
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:34.140
  • And when I say this,
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:35.050
  • I know I'm protected.
  • 00:07:35.050 --> 00:07:36.010
  • I literally say this phrase,
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:37.110
  • and you can use this phrase
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:38.110
  • to say in your home too.
  • 00:07:38.110 --> 00:07:39.220
  • If you feel like there's evil
  • 00:07:39.220 --> 00:07:40.210
  • in your home,
  • 00:07:40.210 --> 00:07:41.190
  • pray over your home
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:42.180
  • and but walk around and also say
  • 00:07:42.180 --> 00:07:44.020
  • this in every room.
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:45.090
  • I've done that for people who
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:46.060
  • said, "I feel like there's evil
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:47.020
  • in my house."
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:47.180
  • I've literally gone room to room
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:48.100
  • with people and said this
  • 00:07:48.100 --> 00:07:49.060
  • out loud in every room,
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:50.270
  • just to protect the house.
  • 00:07:50.270 --> 00:07:51.170
  • Here's what I say.
  • 00:07:51.170 --> 00:07:52.090
  • I say, "In the name of Jesus
  • 00:07:52.090 --> 00:07:53.130
  • Christ, I demand all Satanic and
  • 00:07:53.130 --> 00:07:55.030
  • evil spirits to leave at once.
  • 00:07:55.030 --> 00:07:57.100
  • I command in the name of Jesus
  • 00:07:57.100 --> 00:07:58.130
  • all demons to leave my house
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:07:59.170
  • at once in the name of Jesus."
  • 00:07:59.170 --> 00:08:02.110
  • They have no choice
  • 00:08:02.110 --> 00:08:03.250
  • but to leave.
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:06.020
  • And then I begin to pray and
  • 00:08:06.020 --> 00:08:07.020
  • say, "God, please fill my house
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:08.030
  • up with your angelic beings.
  • 00:08:08.030 --> 00:08:10.030
  • Please fill my--fill my room up
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:11.110
  • with--just put an angel by the
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:13.130
  • door, and an angel
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:14.220
  • by my windows, and put an angel
  • 00:08:14.220 --> 00:08:16.030
  • in my daughter's room.
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:17.210
  • Put an angel in my boys' room.
  • 00:08:17.210 --> 00:08:19.110
  • Just put an angel at the front
  • 00:08:19.110 --> 00:08:20.110
  • door, the back door.
  • 00:08:20.110 --> 00:08:21.050
  • Just protect this whole house."
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:23.090
  • And then I sleep like a baby.
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:26.060
  • Once you sleep,
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:27.000
  • wouldn't you sleep better
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:28.000
  • if you had an armed guard?
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:30.050
  • I know I do so I always just arm
  • 00:08:30.050 --> 00:08:31.250
  • my house, right?
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:33.280
  • Just, "Thank you,
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:34.230
  • God, for protecting me."
  • 00:08:34.230 --> 00:08:35.150
  • Now, I have teenagers
  • 00:08:35.150 --> 00:08:36.070
  • in my house.
  • 00:08:36.070 --> 00:08:36.280
  • Sometimes they forget to lock
  • 00:08:36.280 --> 00:08:37.260
  • doors and stuff so sometimes
  • 00:08:37.260 --> 00:08:38.220
  • I'll go downstairs--I mean,
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:39.240
  • this isn't very often, but ever
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:40.260
  • once in a while it happens.
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:41.210
  • And I'm always like,
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:42.120
  • ah, teenager, right?
  • 00:08:42.120 --> 00:08:43.120
  • I walk downstairs to go to work
  • 00:08:43.120 --> 00:08:44.080
  • and I go out of the house
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:45.240
  • and as soon as I walk out in the
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:47.000
  • garage, the garage door is open.
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:49.000
  • Has this ever happened
  • 00:08:49.000 --> 00:08:49.150
  • at your house?
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:50.060
  • Garage door is open,
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:50.290
  • front door's unlocked.
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:51.220
  • I'm like, seriously?
  • 00:08:51.220 --> 00:08:53.220
  • You know what I mean?
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:54.110
  • I go back to my teenagers,
  • 00:08:54.110 --> 00:08:55.010
  • "Why don't you just leave
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:55.220
  • the car running in the driveway
  • 00:08:55.220 --> 00:08:56.150
  • so they can just take it.
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:57.210
  • I mean like you're killing me.
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:08:59.070
  • What are you doing," right?
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:01.070
  • The point is is that at
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:02.090
  • the moment I just say, "God,
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:03.050
  • thank you for protecting us.
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:04.210
  • You know, I didn't even know but
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:05.100
  • you just put your armed guards
  • 00:09:05.100 --> 00:09:07.030
  • around our house today.
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:08.090
  • Thank you for that, Lord."
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.020
  • And don't come by my house,
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:09.280
  • I'm all locked up, all right?
  • 00:09:09.280 --> 00:09:12.000
  • I got angels all around there
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:13.070
  • but I also got two little other
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:15.050
  • things called Smith & Wesson
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:16.040
  • so I'm just letting you know
  • 00:09:16.040 --> 00:09:17.000
  • right now.
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.250
  • That's how we roll in Texas, all
  • 00:09:18.250 --> 00:09:20.040
  • right, so that's how we work.
  • 00:09:20.040 --> 00:09:22.190
  • So, yeah.
  • 00:09:25.020 --> 00:09:28.020
  • People ask me sometimes like,
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.070
  • "Pastor, does it ever make you
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:30.020
  • nervous, you know,
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:31.010
  • that it's a big church,
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:32.020
  • that someone would come here
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:33.070
  • and try to cause a problem?
  • 00:09:33.070 --> 00:09:34.270
  • You know, 'cause that's
  • 00:09:34.270 --> 00:09:35.200
  • happening now in our world
  • 00:09:35.200 --> 00:09:36.160
  • today.
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:37.030
  • I'm actually not worried about
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:37.220
  • that.
  • 00:09:37.220 --> 00:09:38.120
  • First of all, you may notice out
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:39.010
  • front, we don't have a sign
  • 00:09:39.010 --> 00:09:39.210
  • at any of our campuses that say,
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:41.070
  • "No guns allowed."
  • 00:09:41.070 --> 00:09:42.150
  • I happen to know there's a lot
  • 00:09:42.150 --> 00:09:43.120
  • of guys packin' here and so you
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:46.060
  • can come try,
  • 00:09:46.060 --> 00:09:47.030
  • but you're not gonna last long.
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:49.160
  • I'm just telling ya right now,
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:50.150
  • you're gonna meet Jesus one
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:51.020
  • way or the other if you come
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:52.070
  • You let me know how ya want it.
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:10:00.270
  • Oh, pray for your pastor.
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:05.080
  • So, let me answer another
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:05.280
  • question I said I would answer
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.010
  • today, what does 666 mean, okay?
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:09.060
  • So, I'm gonna break this down
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:10.050
  • and this is gonna freak ya out
  • 00:10:10.050 --> 00:10:11.050
  • probably a little bit
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:12.000
  • but I'm gonna say some truth.
  • 00:10:12.000 --> 00:10:12.280
  • And I want you to understand
  • 00:10:12.280 --> 00:10:13.270
  • when I talk about this that my
  • 00:10:13.270 --> 00:10:16.100
  • job is not to be popular.
  • 00:10:16.100 --> 00:10:18.170
  • My job is not to say things
  • 00:10:18.170 --> 00:10:21.030
  • that are always nice.
  • 00:10:21.030 --> 00:10:22.050
  • It's to tell you the truth.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:23.050
  • Is that cool?
  • 00:10:23.050 --> 00:10:25.140
  • 'Cause I'm about to tell you
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:26.050
  • some truth, all right?
  • 00:10:26.050 --> 00:10:28.050
  • 666 is shy of 777.
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:33.000
  • Seven is the number
  • 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:34.000
  • of completion.
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:35.190
  • Make sense?
  • 00:10:35.190 --> 00:10:37.070
  • Three sevens in a row is the
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.180
  • number of complete perfection.
  • 00:10:38.180 --> 00:10:40.210
  • So, it's completion
  • 00:10:40.210 --> 00:10:42.010
  • and perfection.
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:43.000
  • So 6 is incompletion
  • 00:10:43.000 --> 00:10:45.050
  • and 666 is imperfection.
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:47.030
  • And so, what the devil wants
  • 00:10:47.030 --> 00:10:48.060
  • to do is sell you on something
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:50.080
  • that looks really close to God,
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:52.110
  • but it's not.
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:53.130
  • It's incomplete
  • 00:10:53.130 --> 00:10:54.140
  • and it's not perfect,
  • 00:10:54.140 --> 00:10:55.150
  • but man, it looks like God.
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:56.180
  • It's just not.
  • 00:10:56.180 --> 00:10:58.090
  • Make sense?
  • 00:10:58.090 --> 00:11:00.040
  • "You know, I know the Bible says
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:01.170
  • to get married and to do it
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:03.060
  • the right way but, you know,
  • 00:11:03.060 --> 00:11:04.150
  • we're just gonna live together.
  • 00:11:04.150 --> 00:11:05.180
  • We're gonna play like
  • 00:11:05.180 --> 00:11:06.150
  • we're husband and wife.
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:07.100
  • And we're gonna have kids
  • 00:11:07.100 --> 00:11:08.060
  • and it's all cool.
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:09.050
  • I mean, it looks the same."
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:10.270
  • Yeah, it looks the same,
  • 00:11:10.270 --> 00:11:11.280
  • but it's incomplete, and it's
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:12.270
  • imperfect, and guess what.
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:14.010
  • It doesn't last.
  • 00:11:14.010 --> 00:11:16.040
  • So, it looks like it.
  • 00:11:16.040 --> 00:11:17.020
  • You're playing marriage,
  • 00:11:17.020 --> 00:11:18.000
  • you're playing family,
  • 00:11:18.000 --> 00:11:18.240
  • but there's no covenant
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:19.210
  • before God.
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:21.140
  • This is why 80% of couples that
  • 00:11:21.140 --> 00:11:23.140
  • live together before they get
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:24.180
  • married end in divorce, 80%.
  • 00:11:25.050 --> 00:11:28.050
  • The odds are not in your favor
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:29.260
  • 'cause you didn't do it
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:31.010
  • the right way.
  • 00:11:31.010 --> 00:11:31.190
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:11:31.190 --> 00:11:32.090
  • Now, you can correct
  • 00:11:32.090 --> 00:11:33.030
  • that anytime and say,
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:33.230
  • "God, I realize the covenant's
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:35.110
  • a big deal and I wanna
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:36.080
  • get that right."
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:36.230
  • And I recommend hitting
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:37.120
  • the couch, planning a wedding,
  • 00:11:37.120 --> 00:11:38.110
  • and getting married,
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.050
  • and making it right.
  • 00:11:39.050 --> 00:11:39.220
  • And we do it all the time around
  • 00:11:39.220 --> 00:11:40.120
  • here.
  • 00:11:40.120 --> 00:11:40.280
  • We marry couples all the time
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:41.190
  • that do that.
  • 00:11:41.190 --> 00:11:43.010
  • If you got kids, don't move out.
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:44.070
  • That's very damaging for them.
  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:45.070
  • Just hit the couch and plan a
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:48.070
  • wedding and explain to your kids
  • 00:11:48.070 --> 00:11:49.080
  • why you're doing that.
  • 00:11:49.080 --> 00:11:50.100
  • "Hey Daddy and Mommy didn't
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:51.200
  • realize we weren't honoring God.
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:52.230
  • We're gonna honor God."
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:53.160
  • "Wow, you're staying
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:54.120
  • on the couch?"
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:54.290
  • "Yeah, Dad doesn't like it.
  • 00:11:54.290 --> 00:11:55.170
  • I'm gonna be a little grumpy.
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:56.140
  • I'm not gonna lie.
  • 00:11:57.060 --> 00:12:00.080
  • But we're gonna plan a wedding."
  • 00:12:00.080 --> 00:12:01.110
  • And don't take forever
  • 00:12:01.110 --> 00:12:02.040
  • to do that, right?
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:03.240
  • 'Cause it's not easy and, you
  • 00:12:03.240 --> 00:12:04.270
  • know, take a couple months, get
  • 00:12:04.270 --> 00:12:05.230
  • it all ready, get it planned,
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:06.210
  • and then have a wedding
  • 00:12:06.210 --> 00:12:07.280
  • and let God bless that.
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:09.210
  • But right now, it's incomplete
  • 00:12:09.210 --> 00:12:11.080
  • and it's imperfect.
  • 00:12:11.080 --> 00:12:13.080
  • See, we think 666 is like this
  • 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:14.200
  • huge evil oh, it's like when
  • 00:12:14.200 --> 00:12:16.050
  • you're worshiping the devil
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:17.090
  • and it's all this crazy, dark,
  • 00:12:17.090 --> 00:12:18.120
  • Halloween-looking stuff.
  • 00:12:18.120 --> 00:12:19.170
  • No, 666 is anything that appears
  • 00:12:19.170 --> 00:12:21.060
  • like it's God, but it's not.
  • 00:12:21.060 --> 00:12:24.040
  • So, it looks good,
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:26.170
  • it's just not good.
  • 00:12:26.170 --> 00:12:28.070
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:29.210
  • Now, let me share a Scripture
  • 00:12:29.210 --> 00:12:30.130
  • with you that may freak you out
  • 00:12:30.130 --> 00:12:31.110
  • a little bit, but this is what
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:32.050
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:33.200
  • And this may sound political,
  • 00:12:33.200 --> 00:12:35.050
  • and I'm not really trying to be.
  • 00:12:35.050 --> 00:12:35.270
  • I'm just trying to tell you
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:36.180
  • the truth.
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:37.130
  • But look at the Scripture.
  • 00:12:37.130 --> 00:12:38.110
  • It says, "The beast was given
  • 00:12:38.110 --> 00:12:39.140
  • a mouth to utter proud words and
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:40.290
  • blasphemies and to exercise its
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:42.030
  • authority for forty-two months."
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:43.170
  • Now, let me explain real quick.
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:44.070
  • Let me tell ya three things
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:44.290
  • real quick.
  • 00:12:44.290 --> 00:12:45.280
  • You may wanna write this down
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:46.190
  • somewhere in your notes.
  • 00:12:46.190 --> 00:12:47.040
  • This is not--I don't want you to
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:47.270
  • fill in the blank but just write
  • 00:12:47.270 --> 00:12:48.200
  • this down.
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:49.080
  • You have three things.
  • 00:12:49.080 --> 00:12:49.270
  • You have the antichrist,
  • 00:12:49.270 --> 00:12:50.190
  • the beast, and Satan.
  • 00:12:50.190 --> 00:12:52.050
  • You know what you call that?
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:53.200
  • You call that an unholy trinity.
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:56.130
  • Antichrist, the beast,
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:57.120
  • and Satan, an unholy trinity.
  • 00:12:57.120 --> 00:12:58.260
  • Once again, what's he trying
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:12:59.190
  • to do?
  • 00:12:59.190 --> 00:13:00.090
  • He's trying to appear like God,
  • 00:13:00.090 --> 00:13:02.270
  • but it's incomplete
  • 00:13:02.270 --> 00:13:04.060
  • and it's imperfect.
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:05.200
  • But man, it looks good.
  • 00:13:05.200 --> 00:13:06.210
  • And whenever the beast appears,
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:07.280
  • it's gonna look great.
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:09.160
  • It's not gonna look like
  • 00:13:09.160 --> 00:13:10.050
  • a beast, it's gonna look--
  • 00:13:10.050 --> 00:13:10.270
  • the antichrist is actually
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:12.030
  • the beast looks like a beast.
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:13.020
  • I'm sorry, the antichrist
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.090
  • is very attractive, like,
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:16.130
  • "Man, this is a great leader
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:18.030
  • and wow, they're awesome.
  • 00:13:18.030 --> 00:13:19.250
  • We should do whatever
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:20.230
  • they want."
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:23.140
  • I know this is gonna shock you
  • 00:13:23.140 --> 00:13:24.110
  • but there was a time in history
  • 00:13:24.110 --> 00:13:26.080
  • when Hitler was amazing.
  • 00:13:26.220 --> 00:13:29.220
  • I mean, phenomenal leadership,
  • 00:13:29.220 --> 00:13:31.170
  • greatest political--greatest
  • 00:13:31.170 --> 00:13:34.030
  • politician we've ever seen.
  • 00:13:34.030 --> 00:13:35.150
  • He swept--people loved him.
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:38.040
  • They felt like our nation
  • 00:13:38.040 --> 00:13:39.050
  • is great again because of him.
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:42.100
  • And then he turned.
  • 00:13:42.100 --> 00:13:45.070
  • Looked great.
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:47.170
  • And is it any wonder,
  • 00:13:47.170 --> 00:13:48.130
  • by the way, that his anger
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:50.150
  • was greatest for the people
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:51.290
  • that were called the people
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:52.260
  • of God?
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:55.180
  • "Oh, I think this is a bunch
  • 00:13:55.180 --> 00:13:56.150
  • of bunk, Pastor,
  • 00:13:56.150 --> 00:13:57.080
  • this evil's not real."
  • 00:13:57.080 --> 00:13:58.060
  • Really?
  • 00:13:58.060 --> 00:13:58.260
  • Then why is it that every time
  • 00:13:58.260 --> 00:13:59.260
  • a madman goes into a school, the
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:01.120
  • very first thing they do is say,
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:02.090
  • "All the Christians stand up"?
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:04.020
  • Why are they saying that
  • 00:14:04.020 --> 00:14:04.240
  • then if there's nothing here?
  • 00:14:04.240 --> 00:14:06.210
  • If you're just crazy,
  • 00:14:06.210 --> 00:14:07.210
  • why are you focused
  • 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:08.150
  • on Christians so much?
  • 00:14:08.150 --> 00:14:11.110
  • Because evil wants to take out
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:12.150
  • those who can make a difference
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:13.160
  • first.
  • 00:14:13.160 --> 00:14:16.020
  • So, if this isn't real,
  • 00:14:16.020 --> 00:14:17.140
  • why do they always say that?
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:18.090
  • Why every case do you see
  • 00:14:18.090 --> 00:14:19.230
  • Columbine, why is it the first
  • 00:14:19.230 --> 00:14:21.190
  • thing they say, "If you're
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:22.110
  • a Christian, stand up first"
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:23.120
  • and you're taking it in the head
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:24.210
  • first?
  • 00:14:24.210 --> 00:14:25.060
  • Why?
  • 00:14:25.060 --> 00:14:25.220
  • Because they want to take out
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:27.180
  • those who are on God's side.
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:30.050
  • It's evil, guys.
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:31.100
  • It's demons.
  • 00:14:31.100 --> 00:14:32.140
  • It's the devil and we need
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:34.210
  • to recognize it for what it is.
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:36.130
  • And by the way, I'm gonna say
  • 00:14:36.130 --> 00:14:37.110
  • something that may surprise you
  • 00:14:37.110 --> 00:14:38.240
  • but I'm gonna say it
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:39.230
  • boldly right now.
  • 00:14:39.230 --> 00:14:40.260
  • I want you to hear this loud
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:41.200
  • and clear.
  • 00:14:41.200 --> 00:14:42.060
  • Any religion that ends in death
  • 00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:44.220
  • and destruction is of the devil.
  • 00:14:45.080 --> 00:14:48.080
  • Process that for a second.
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:50.140
  • If the greatest way that you
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:52.080
  • bring worship in your religion
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:55.100
  • to your god is to kill people,
  • 00:14:55.100 --> 00:14:57.230
  • who do you think's behind that?
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:02.080
  • 'Cause the devil came to steal,
  • 00:15:02.080 --> 00:15:03.060
  • kill, and destroy.
  • 00:15:03.060 --> 00:15:05.110
  • And by the way, Christianity's
  • 00:15:05.110 --> 00:15:07.230
  • been highjacked like that too
  • 00:15:07.230 --> 00:15:08.140
  • before.
  • 00:15:08.140 --> 00:15:10.020
  • So, don't think this is just
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:10.190
  • our faith, other faith.
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:12.220
  • Oh, no, no, no.
  • 00:15:12.220 --> 00:15:13.210
  • There's some people in the name
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:14.160
  • of God who have killed people,
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:18.100
  • and it's always the devil behind
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:21.110
  • death, always without exception.
  • 00:15:21.260 --> 00:15:24.260
  • Sin leads to, what?
  • 00:15:24.260 --> 00:15:27.020
  • Death.
  • 00:15:27.020 --> 00:15:29.000
  • It does time and time again.
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:32.110
  • I don't mean to freak ya out,
  • 00:15:32.110 --> 00:15:32.290
  • but I wanna just tell you
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:33.150
  • the truth.
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:34.090
  • I think you deserve
  • 00:15:34.090 --> 00:15:34.260
  • to know that.
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:35.150
  • So, let me go back to Scripture.
  • 00:15:35.150 --> 00:15:36.060
  • Let me complete this thought.
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:38.180
  • "The beast was given a mouth
  • 00:15:38.180 --> 00:15:39.060
  • to utter proud words and
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:40.090
  • blasphemies and to exercise its
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:41.050
  • authority for forty-two months.
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:42.070
  • It opened its mouth to blaspheme
  • 00:15:42.070 --> 00:15:44.040
  • God, it also forced
  • 00:15:44.040 --> 00:15:45.140
  • all people--"
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:46.140
  • Listen, listen, listen.
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:47.030
  • "Forced all people,
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:48.060
  • great and small, rich and poor,
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:50.010
  • free and slave, to receive
  • 00:15:50.010 --> 00:15:51.100
  • a mark on their right hands
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:52.290
  • and on their foreheads."
  • 00:15:52.290 --> 00:15:53.280
  • Social scientists tell us
  • 00:15:53.280 --> 00:15:54.250
  • the two areas that are the least
  • 00:15:54.250 --> 00:15:56.060
  • likely to get hurt for
  • 00:15:56.060 --> 00:15:57.050
  • you is your right hand and
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:58.190
  • your forehead and here's why.
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:15:59.190
  • Right hand, most people
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:00.150
  • are right hand dominated.
  • 00:16:00.150 --> 00:16:01.090
  • For me, it would be left hand
  • 00:16:01.090 --> 00:16:02.080
  • 'cause I'm left hand dominated.
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.020
  • But most people are right hand
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:04.060
  • dominated which means if
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:05.180
  • something's coming at your right
  • 00:16:05.180 --> 00:16:06.190
  • hand, since it's your dominant
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:07.180
  • hand, you're the best with it,
  • 00:16:07.180 --> 00:16:08.150
  • you would move quick.
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:09.220
  • You would be like oh,
  • 00:16:09.220 --> 00:16:10.240
  • and you would protect it, right?
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:12.110
  • It's your dominant hand so it's
  • 00:16:12.110 --> 00:16:13.050
  • the least likely to get injured
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:14.230
  • 'cause you would protect it.
  • 00:16:14.230 --> 00:16:16.050
  • Also the least likely place
  • 00:16:16.050 --> 00:16:17.150
  • to get injured would be your
  • 00:16:17.150 --> 00:16:18.020
  • forehead.
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:18.160
  • Why?
  • 00:16:18.160 --> 00:16:19.020
  • 'Cause you could see it coming
  • 00:16:19.020 --> 00:16:19.220
  • at you so you'd, whoa.
  • 00:16:19.220 --> 00:16:21.150
  • So, the two areas that you could
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:22.160
  • receive some kind of marking
  • 00:16:22.160 --> 00:16:24.040
  • that wouldn't get messed up the
  • 00:16:24.040 --> 00:16:25.000
  • most would be on your right hand
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:26.100
  • and on your forehead.
  • 00:16:26.100 --> 00:16:28.190
  • Now, let me go on
  • 00:16:28.190 --> 00:16:29.110
  • with his Scripture.
  • 00:16:29.110 --> 00:16:30.150
  • It says that "they would receive
  • 00:16:30.150 --> 00:16:31.110
  • this mark on their right hands
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:32.170
  • or on their foreheads, so
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:33.170
  • that they could not buy or sell
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:35.010
  • unless they had the mark,
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:36.030
  • which is the name of the beast
  • 00:16:36.030 --> 00:16:37.190
  • or the number of its name.
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:39.000
  • This is--this calls for wisdom.
  • 00:16:39.000 --> 00:16:40.050
  • Let the person who has insight
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:40.290
  • calculate the number
  • 00:16:40.290 --> 00:16:42.060
  • of the beast,
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:42.290
  • for it's the number of a man.
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:43.250
  • That number is 666."
  • 00:16:43.250 --> 00:16:44.260
  • What it's saying here is
  • 00:16:44.260 --> 00:16:46.030
  • it's not really just a number.
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:47.070
  • What it's saying is that anyone
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:48.030
  • who takes a mark,
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.060
  • takes a number,
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:50.040
  • and that number's required
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:50.290
  • to buy and to sell anything,
  • 00:16:50.290 --> 00:16:52.240
  • then that puts whoever is over
  • 00:16:52.240 --> 00:16:54.020
  • the commerce, over you.
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:58.190
  • So, this is very important.
  • 00:16:58.190 --> 00:16:59.280
  • I'm gonna say something that's
  • 00:16:59.280 --> 00:17:01.280
  • bold but here's what this means.
  • 00:17:01.280 --> 00:17:03.210
  • Number 4, what does 666 mean?
  • 00:17:03.210 --> 00:17:05.120
  • "The number represents one short
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:06.290
  • of perfection, also the name
  • 00:17:06.290 --> 00:17:08.130
  • of the beast in Revelation
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:09.160
  • representing the political
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.140
  • system that was developed
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:13.120
  • to create dependence upon the
  • 00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:15.080
  • government rather than God."
  • 00:17:15.240 --> 00:17:18.240
  • Oh, I could preach a sermon
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:20.070
  • right now but I won't
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:23.290
  • but I could.
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:27.010
  • Now listen, don't just think
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:28.070
  • this is dependence upon God
  • 00:17:28.070 --> 00:17:29.170
  • from those who get a check
  • 00:17:29.170 --> 00:17:30.050
  • from the government.
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:31.010
  • It's not just that because even
  • 00:17:31.010 --> 00:17:32.270
  • the rich guy who feels like,
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.060
  • "Oh no, I'm in charge
  • 00:17:34.060 --> 00:17:35.100
  • of my finances and I don't need
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:36.240
  • anybody."
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:37.140
  • Really?
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:38.070
  • Because when you say,
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:38.280
  • "Oh, I would never take
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:39.270
  • some number to be dependent
  • 00:17:39.270 --> 00:17:40.230
  • on that."
  • 00:17:40.230 --> 00:17:41.130
  • Really, are you sure?
  • 00:17:41.130 --> 00:17:42.040
  • How are all of your bills
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:42.280
  • paid right now?
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:44.050
  • Could it all be tied
  • 00:17:44.050 --> 00:17:44.290
  • to one number?
  • 00:17:44.290 --> 00:17:46.180
  • Could all of your--
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:48.000
  • "Oh, I send that by automated.
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:49.110
  • It's so much easier."
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:50.040
  • I know it's easy.
  • 00:17:50.040 --> 00:17:50.280
  • I did the same thing.
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:51.190
  • All my bills are paid
  • 00:17:51.190 --> 00:17:53.030
  • by one number.
  • 00:17:53.030 --> 00:17:54.230
  • Are you that way too?
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:57.220
  • Can you see the problem here?
  • 00:17:57.220 --> 00:18:00.120
  • How fast our entire commerce
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:02.220
  • can be shut down?
  • 00:18:02.220 --> 00:18:03.230
  • Guys, people sent out three
  • 00:18:03.230 --> 00:18:04.280
  • or four emails this last week
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:06.090
  • and shut down Amazon.
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:09.110
  • Don't tell me this can't happen.
  • 00:18:09.110 --> 00:18:11.120
  • This absolutely can happen.
  • 00:18:11.120 --> 00:18:13.150
  • And so, I know we think,
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:14.190
  • "Oh, but this--we'd never fall
  • 00:18:14.190 --> 00:18:15.200
  • for this."
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:16.180
  • Guys, we're already falling
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:17.140
  • for it.
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:18.260
  • This is why theologians
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:19.260
  • in the '70s flipped out
  • 00:18:19.260 --> 00:18:21.170
  • when no one really understood
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:22.150
  • why they were flipping out
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:23.070
  • whenever we went
  • 00:18:23.070 --> 00:18:23.260
  • off the gold standard
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:24.170
  • with money.
  • 00:18:24.170 --> 00:18:25.030
  • You know why?
  • 00:18:25.030 --> 00:18:25.250
  • Because now going off the
  • 00:18:25.250 --> 00:18:26.160
  • gold standard said no longer
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:27.120
  • do we have gold that represents
  • 00:18:27.120 --> 00:18:28.250
  • the cash we have saying
  • 00:18:28.250 --> 00:18:29.240
  • the reason this is $10.000
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.020
  • 'cause I have $10.000 worth of
  • 00:18:31.020 --> 00:18:32.160
  • gold somewhere in the U.S. mint
  • 00:18:32.160 --> 00:18:34.110
  • somewhere that represents
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:35.050
  • this $10.000 and that's why this
  • 00:18:35.050 --> 00:18:37.020
  • is actually--this is just paper
  • 00:18:37.020 --> 00:18:38.170
  • but it represents the gold.
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:39.260
  • Now, we took it off the gold
  • 00:18:39.260 --> 00:18:40.230
  • standard.
  • 00:18:40.230 --> 00:18:41.270
  • Now we're just printing money,
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:42.240
  • by the way, which means it's
  • 00:18:42.240 --> 00:18:43.260
  • going down in value greatly,
  • 00:18:43.260 --> 00:18:44.290
  • by the way.
  • 00:18:44.290 --> 00:18:45.220
  • But let's just set that--
  • 00:18:45.220 --> 00:18:46.110
  • the economic issue aside
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:47.150
  • and realize something else.
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:48.120
  • That means when I give you
  • 00:18:48.120 --> 00:18:49.080
  • money, I'm saying I owe you
  • 00:18:49.080 --> 00:18:50.030
  • something, right?
  • 00:18:50.030 --> 00:18:51.110
  • You ever write a check?
  • 00:18:51.110 --> 00:18:52.140
  • That's actually credit.
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:53.150
  • You're actually saying, "I'm
  • 00:18:53.150 --> 00:18:54.120
  • gonna give you this peace of
  • 00:18:54.120 --> 00:18:55.090
  • paper and then you're bank can
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:56.100
  • go to my bank to get the money.
  • 00:18:56.100 --> 00:18:57.090
  • So, I'm just--it's just a piece
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:58.050
  • of paper I just signed
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:18:58.290
  • but I owe you this."
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:00.030
  • And then people write you
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:00.240
  • checks and they owe me and I get
  • 00:19:00.240 --> 00:19:02.040
  • a paycheck, which means you
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:03.050
  • owe me this money.
  • 00:19:03.050 --> 00:19:04.110
  • And I take what you owe me
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:05.050
  • and I pay someone else what
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:05.280
  • they--what I owe them.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:07.060
  • And so, we all owe each other,
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:08.270
  • which means at any point
  • 00:19:08.270 --> 00:19:09.200
  • in time, the government can shut
  • 00:19:09.200 --> 00:19:10.260
  • all that down and we are
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:11.230
  • all dependent upon them.
  • 00:19:12.250 --> 00:19:15.250
  • See the problem?
  • 00:19:15.250 --> 00:19:17.120
  • "Oh pastor,
  • 00:19:17.120 --> 00:19:17.290
  • this is really paranoia."
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:19.020
  • No, it's not.
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:19.240
  • It's Scripture.
  • 00:19:19.240 --> 00:19:21.060
  • And this is why we must always
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:22.290
  • take over our government.
  • 00:19:22.290 --> 00:19:25.290
  • Guys, we are the government.
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:28.250
  • This is very important
  • 00:19:28.250 --> 00:19:30.030
  • that we remain in charge.
  • 00:19:30.160 --> 00:19:33.160
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:36.010
  • "Well pastor, you're just trying
  • 00:19:36.010 --> 00:19:36.230
  • to throw out this
  • 00:19:36.230 --> 00:19:37.170
  • and that person."
  • 00:19:37.170 --> 00:19:38.030
  • I'm trying to throw them
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:38.190
  • all out.
  • 00:19:38.190 --> 00:19:40.210
  • Oh no, I'm not talking about
  • 00:19:40.210 --> 00:19:41.150
  • one group or the other.
  • 00:19:41.150 --> 00:19:42.100
  • I think they should all be
  • 00:19:42.100 --> 00:19:43.240
  • thrown out if they think
  • 00:19:43.240 --> 00:19:44.270
  • that they're in charge.
  • 00:19:44.270 --> 00:19:46.080
  • We put them in office.
  • 00:19:46.080 --> 00:19:48.080
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:19:48.080 --> 00:19:49.250
  • This is very important.
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:50.250
  • This is why we need to be
  • 00:19:50.250 --> 00:19:51.180
  • exercising our vote.
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:53.090
  • But I want to encourage you
  • 00:19:53.090 --> 00:19:54.070
  • to know that there
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.020
  • is a political system.
  • 00:19:55.020 --> 00:19:56.010
  • Ultimately--and this isn't
  • 00:19:56.010 --> 00:19:57.130
  • America's system.
  • 00:19:57.130 --> 00:19:58.090
  • It's the world's system where
  • 00:19:58.090 --> 00:20:00.220
  • everyone's relying upon
  • 00:20:00.220 --> 00:20:01.210
  • one central government
  • 00:20:01.210 --> 00:20:03.210
  • and that's a really scary thing.
  • 00:20:03.210 --> 00:20:06.050
  • And so, look at John chapter 10,
  • 00:20:06.050 --> 00:20:07.040
  • verse 10.
  • 00:20:07.040 --> 00:20:08.030
  • This is where I wanna leave us.
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:09.060
  • It says, "The thief comes only
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:10.010
  • to steal and kill and destroy;
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:11.090
  • I have come that they may have
  • 00:20:11.090 --> 00:20:12.050
  • life, and have it to its full."
  • 00:20:12.050 --> 00:20:14.030
  • So God--Jesus gives us
  • 00:20:14.030 --> 00:20:15.070
  • a contrast.
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:16.000
  • He says, "Look, the thief came
  • 00:20:16.000 --> 00:20:16.280
  • to still, to kill, and destroy,
  • 00:20:16.280 --> 00:20:17.240
  • but I have come to give you
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:18.170
  • a great life."
  • 00:20:18.170 --> 00:20:19.090
  • Number five is the devil
  • 00:20:19.090 --> 00:20:20.030
  • and his demons want to steal
  • 00:20:20.030 --> 00:20:20.270
  • what is yours, kill you,
  • 00:20:20.270 --> 00:20:22.090
  • and destroy all that is good
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:23.070
  • in your life.
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:24.250
  • How many of you guys believe God
  • 00:20:24.250 --> 00:20:25.140
  • has a great plan for your
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:26.170
  • marriage?
  • 00:20:26.170 --> 00:20:27.200
  • Do you know that the devil
  • 00:20:27.200 --> 00:20:28.080
  • has one too?
  • 00:20:28.080 --> 00:20:30.000
  • To destroy you.
  • 00:20:30.000 --> 00:20:30.280
  • God has a great plan
  • 00:20:30.280 --> 00:20:31.170
  • for your finances.
  • 00:20:31.170 --> 00:20:32.080
  • He wants you to tithe.
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:33.060
  • He wants you to be blessed.
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:34.170
  • The devil also has a plan,
  • 00:20:34.170 --> 00:20:35.140
  • he wants you to be in debt
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:36.140
  • and to give at least 10%
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:37.080
  • of your money to just
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:38.110
  • to paying off your debt,
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:39.110
  • which is a revolving debt
  • 00:20:39.110 --> 00:20:40.160
  • which means it never actually
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:41.100
  • pays off so you're tithing
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.160
  • to the enemy, rather than
  • 00:20:42.160 --> 00:20:43.160
  • tithing to God.
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:45.190
  • He has a plan too.
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:47.120
  • See how that works?
  • 00:20:47.120 --> 00:20:48.280
  • There is an enemy that wants to
  • 00:20:48.280 --> 00:20:50.160
  • hurt you but, again,
  • 00:20:50.160 --> 00:20:51.200
  • we win in the end
  • 00:20:51.200 --> 00:20:53.140
  • and that's the good news.
  • 00:20:53.140 --> 00:20:54.130
  • Last thing I wanna tell you is
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:55.080
  • quick story and we'll wrap up.
  • 00:20:55.080 --> 00:20:56.130
  • Please stay focused.
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:21:00.180
  • The devil doesn't want you
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:01.090
  • to focus right now, by the way,
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:04.230
  • because he knows we're about
  • 00:21:04.230 --> 00:21:05.210
  • to have a point of salvation
  • 00:21:05.210 --> 00:21:06.150
  • and that's what he wants
  • 00:21:06.150 --> 00:21:07.110
  • to interrupt.
  • 00:21:07.110 --> 00:21:09.050
  • Let me tell you a quick story.
  • 00:21:09.050 --> 00:21:11.100
  • The same lady I told you a
  • 00:21:11.100 --> 00:21:12.030
  • couple of her stories last week
  • 00:21:12.030 --> 00:21:13.140
  • had a very powerful story that
  • 00:21:13.140 --> 00:21:14.150
  • I asked if I could share.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:15.290
  • And she said,
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:16.140
  • "That will be fine."
  • 00:21:16.140 --> 00:21:17.170
  • And so, I hope I'm doing
  • 00:21:17.170 --> 00:21:19.050
  • the story justice.
  • 00:21:19.050 --> 00:21:20.000
  • She texted me earlier and
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:21.030
  • thanked me for sharing her story
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:22.080
  • so I guess it was accurate,
  • 00:21:22.080 --> 00:21:23.050
  • wanted to make sure it was.
  • 00:21:23.050 --> 00:21:23.290
  • I tried to get the details.
  • 00:21:23.290 --> 00:21:26.050
  • She was living in Germany
  • 00:21:26.050 --> 00:21:27.030
  • at age 23, and she was just
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:29.210
  • enjoying being in a different
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:31.030
  • culture, like a lot of people
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:32.080
  • do at a young age.
  • 00:21:32.080 --> 00:21:33.130
  • And so, she went over there
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:34.170
  • and, you know, she had a job
  • 00:21:34.170 --> 00:21:35.270
  • and was just kind of enjoying
  • 00:21:35.270 --> 00:21:37.020
  • her life before she came back
  • 00:21:37.020 --> 00:21:37.290
  • to the States, you know?
  • 00:21:37.290 --> 00:21:39.050
  • And a lot of people do that
  • 00:21:39.050 --> 00:21:39.230
  • when they're younger.
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:40.210
  • And so, she was over there and
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:41.160
  • she went to a concert one night.
  • 00:21:41.160 --> 00:21:42.200
  • She's at the concert having
  • 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:43.170
  • a good time and she met a guy.
  • 00:21:43.170 --> 00:21:44.260
  • You know, not uncommon either.
  • 00:21:44.260 --> 00:21:45.230
  • She's young, single,
  • 00:21:45.230 --> 00:21:47.060
  • meets a guy.
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:48.080
  • He was obviously interested
  • 00:21:48.080 --> 00:21:49.010
  • in her and they talked
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:49.240
  • and just chatted up
  • 00:21:49.240 --> 00:21:50.190
  • and became quick friends.
  • 00:21:50.190 --> 00:21:52.070
  • At the end of the concert, she
  • 00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:53.180
  • let him know that she was just
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:54.140
  • gonna go home basically saying
  • 00:21:54.140 --> 00:21:55.220
  • like, "It was nice meeting you,
  • 00:21:55.220 --> 00:21:56.280
  • but I'm going home alone, just
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:21:58.250
  • letting you know," you know?
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:21:59.270
  • And he obviously had other plans
  • 00:21:59.270 --> 00:22:01.200
  • for her.
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:02.250
  • And so, he--she's walking home
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.000
  • and she notices after saying
  • 00:22:04.000 --> 00:22:06.090
  • goodbye to him that he's walking
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:07.070
  • behind her.
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:08.210
  • And so, at a distance
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:09.270
  • and she begins to walk faster,
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:11.060
  • getting a bit nervous.
  • 00:22:11.060 --> 00:22:11.290
  • He begins to walk faster too.
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:13.020
  • Eventually, she comes to where
  • 00:22:13.020 --> 00:22:14.250
  • she's walking by a park,
  • 00:22:14.250 --> 00:22:15.280
  • he runs up to her,
  • 00:22:15.280 --> 00:22:17.050
  • grabs her and taking--
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:19.020
  • drags her as she's screaming.
  • 00:22:19.020 --> 00:22:20.180
  • There's no one around.
  • 00:22:20.180 --> 00:22:21.110
  • Throws her down on the ground in
  • 00:22:21.110 --> 00:22:23.000
  • a park, pulls out an 8-inch buck
  • 00:22:23.000 --> 00:22:24.260
  • knife and begins to stab her
  • 00:22:24.260 --> 00:22:27.040
  • repeatedly in the belly.
  • 00:22:27.040 --> 00:22:29.140
  • She is bleeding everywhere,
  • 00:22:29.140 --> 00:22:31.020
  • screaming and fighting
  • 00:22:31.020 --> 00:22:32.110
  • for her life not believing
  • 00:22:32.110 --> 00:22:33.210
  • what's happening.
  • 00:22:33.210 --> 00:22:34.130
  • She actually said, this is very
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:35.120
  • interesting, that it was almost
  • 00:22:35.120 --> 00:22:36.240
  • like she was standing
  • 00:22:36.240 --> 00:22:37.250
  • in front of this watching,
  • 00:22:37.250 --> 00:22:39.030
  • but it wasn't her being stabbed.
  • 00:22:39.030 --> 00:22:40.120
  • I've heard the same thing from
  • 00:22:40.120 --> 00:22:42.040
  • people who were being raped that
  • 00:22:42.040 --> 00:22:43.090
  • literally it was like they were
  • 00:22:43.090 --> 00:22:44.050
  • sitting over here watching
  • 00:22:44.050 --> 00:22:45.040
  • themselves be raped rather
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:46.180
  • than experiencing it.
  • 00:22:46.180 --> 00:22:47.120
  • I believe that's God's
  • 00:22:47.120 --> 00:22:48.030
  • protection doing that for us.
  • 00:22:48.030 --> 00:22:50.240
  • So, she literally could--
  • 00:22:50.240 --> 00:22:51.180
  • it was like she was watching
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:52.200
  • this happen.
  • 00:22:52.200 --> 00:22:53.120
  • She's getting stabbed.
  • 00:22:53.120 --> 00:22:54.090
  • She can't believe this
  • 00:22:54.090 --> 00:22:55.000
  • is happening.
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:55.210
  • She's passing out, coming to,
  • 00:22:55.210 --> 00:22:56.160
  • fighting him off, trying to stop
  • 00:22:56.160 --> 00:22:57.270
  • from getting killed.
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:22:59.220
  • And as she begins to fight him
  • 00:22:59.220 --> 00:23:01.020
  • and she's coming to and,
  • 00:23:01.020 --> 00:23:02.120
  • you know, she passes out
  • 00:23:02.120 --> 00:23:03.250
  • and then wakes up again
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:04.240
  • and with every stab--
  • 00:23:04.240 --> 00:23:06.000
  • she eventually gets away
  • 00:23:06.000 --> 00:23:07.260
  • from him and runs while
  • 00:23:07.260 --> 00:23:09.210
  • she's bleeding out.
  • 00:23:09.210 --> 00:23:11.010
  • This is amazing that she got
  • 00:23:11.010 --> 00:23:11.260
  • away.
  • 00:23:11.260 --> 00:23:13.000
  • She runs into the street.
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:14.150
  • She sees one lone car pull up.
  • 00:23:14.150 --> 00:23:16.160
  • It was a gold Mercedes.
  • 00:23:16.160 --> 00:23:17.210
  • She said she'll never forget it.
  • 00:23:17.210 --> 00:23:18.270
  • Pulled up, some guy puts it in
  • 00:23:18.270 --> 00:23:19.220
  • park, jumps out, runs around,
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:20.220
  • grabs her, throws her in the
  • 00:23:20.220 --> 00:23:22.030
  • back of his car and that's
  • 00:23:22.030 --> 00:23:23.020
  • the last thing she remembers.
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:25.290
  • Three days later after
  • 00:23:25.290 --> 00:23:26.210
  • a three-day coma, she wakes up.
  • 00:23:28.000 --> 00:23:31.000
  • The doctors have already helped
  • 00:23:31.000 --> 00:23:32.170
  • perform the necessary procedures
  • 00:23:32.170 --> 00:23:34.220
  • to get her healed up from
  • 00:23:34.220 --> 00:23:35.200
  • the wounds.
  • 00:23:35.200 --> 00:23:36.080
  • Thank God nothing was fatal.
  • 00:23:36.080 --> 00:23:38.200
  • It was just ugly and painful
  • 00:23:38.200 --> 00:23:41.010
  • but nothing was fatal.
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:43.040
  • They said, "What happened?"
  • 00:23:43.040 --> 00:23:45.000
  • And she began to describe
  • 00:23:45.000 --> 00:23:45.260
  • her attacker.
  • 00:23:45.260 --> 00:23:47.150
  • They took a composite of it, put
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:48.290
  • it out through all the airwaves
  • 00:23:48.290 --> 00:23:51.140
  • and they eventually caught
  • 00:23:51.140 --> 00:23:52.060
  • this guy.
  • 00:23:52.060 --> 00:23:53.070
  • This guy was a part of
  • 00:23:53.070 --> 00:23:55.020
  • a traveling circus.
  • 00:23:55.020 --> 00:23:56.140
  • Rule number one is do not date
  • 00:23:56.140 --> 00:23:57.190
  • a guy that's from a traveling
  • 00:23:57.190 --> 00:23:58.200
  • circus, okay?
  • 00:23:58.200 --> 00:24:01.180
  • Man.
  • 00:24:01.180 --> 00:24:02.200
  • So, that's rule number one.
  • 00:24:02.200 --> 00:24:03.110
  • But basically, they caught
  • 00:24:03.110 --> 00:24:05.020
  • the guy but they didn't--
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:06.010
  • they couldn't find his weapon.
  • 00:24:06.010 --> 00:24:07.140
  • And in Germany with no weapon,
  • 00:24:07.140 --> 00:24:09.110
  • it's only aggravated assault
  • 00:24:09.110 --> 00:24:11.060
  • and not murder.
  • 00:24:11.060 --> 00:24:12.180
  • I know it's unbelievable, right?
  • 00:24:12.180 --> 00:24:14.040
  • Thank God a few weeks later,
  • 00:24:14.040 --> 00:24:16.020
  • some kids were playing in that
  • 00:24:16.020 --> 00:24:16.290
  • park and someone found
  • 00:24:16.290 --> 00:24:17.240
  • some fresh dirt, dug it up
  • 00:24:17.240 --> 00:24:18.270
  • and found a knife.
  • 00:24:18.270 --> 00:24:20.240
  • They found the knife.
  • 00:24:20.240 --> 00:24:21.150
  • The knife had not only her DNA
  • 00:24:21.150 --> 00:24:23.030
  • all over it, but his DNA on it
  • 00:24:23.030 --> 00:24:24.080
  • as well.
  • 00:24:24.080 --> 00:24:25.240
  • And so, they were able
  • 00:24:25.240 --> 00:24:26.260
  • to implicate him.
  • 00:24:26.260 --> 00:24:28.000
  • What they found out when
  • 00:24:28.000 --> 00:24:28.200
  • they got the DNA, he had already
  • 00:24:28.200 --> 00:24:31.050
  • successfully murdered multiple
  • 00:24:31.050 --> 00:24:33.190
  • young women across Europe.
  • 00:24:33.190 --> 00:24:35.290
  • He was a serial killer.
  • 00:24:36.040 --> 00:24:39.040
  • And because they found the
  • 00:24:39.040 --> 00:24:41.100
  • weapon and she went to court,
  • 00:24:41.100 --> 00:24:44.040
  • fought it, fought him in court,
  • 00:24:44.080 --> 00:24:47.080
  • he has now been put away
  • 00:24:47.080 --> 00:24:48.150
  • for life.
  • 00:24:48.150 --> 00:24:49.110
  • Praise God.
  • 00:24:49.110 --> 00:24:51.270
  • Praise God.
  • 00:24:52.130 --> 00:24:55.130
  • 'Cause she told me, "There is
  • 00:24:55.130 --> 00:24:56.090
  • just no way I could have lived
  • 00:24:56.090 --> 00:24:58.140
  • without angels fighting
  • 00:24:58.140 --> 00:25:00.070
  • on my behalf in that moment."
  • 00:25:00.070 --> 00:25:01.250
  • There's no--he could have
  • 00:25:01.250 --> 00:25:02.210
  • overpowered her.
  • 00:25:02.210 --> 00:25:03.150
  • There's no way.
  • 00:25:03.150 --> 00:25:04.030
  • Just doesn't even make physical
  • 00:25:04.030 --> 00:25:04.230
  • sense.
  • 00:25:04.230 --> 00:25:05.130
  • This man was clearly stronger
  • 00:25:05.130 --> 00:25:06.180
  • than her with an agenda.
  • 00:25:06.180 --> 00:25:08.140
  • She was shocked.
  • 00:25:08.140 --> 00:25:09.130
  • She was taken by surprise.
  • 00:25:09.130 --> 00:25:10.050
  • He was much bigger than her but
  • 00:25:10.050 --> 00:25:12.010
  • God allowed her to be free from
  • 00:25:12.010 --> 00:25:14.070
  • him, allowed him to get caught.
  • 00:25:14.070 --> 00:25:16.020
  • How many women are saved because
  • 00:25:16.020 --> 00:25:17.170
  • of this because he's been
  • 00:25:17.170 --> 00:25:19.140
  • put away?
  • 00:25:19.140 --> 00:25:20.080
  • How many more would he have
  • 00:25:20.080 --> 00:25:21.040
  • killed?
  • 00:25:21.040 --> 00:25:22.180

  • 00:25:22.180 --> 00:25:23.080
  • something, there is a battle
