  • WHEN THE LOST ARE FOUND
  • 00:00:01.160 --> 00:00:04.020
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING
  • 00:00:04.050 --> 00:00:08.050
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:00:08.080 --> 00:00:15.270
  • SO I FOUND MY OLD BIBLE FROM THOSE DAYS.
  • 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:19.150
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN REALLY SEE
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:20.200
  • HOW OLD THIS BIBLE IS.
  • 00:00:20.230 --> 00:00:22.020
  • IF YOU CAN GET A SHOT OF IT, IT'S LITERALLY FALLING APART.
  • 00:00:22.050 --> 00:00:25.090
  • IT HAD A LEATHER COVER. WAIT A SECOND HERE.
  • 00:00:25.120 --> 00:00:30.070
  • I USED IT SO MUCH PAGES WERE COMING OUT OF IT.
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:33.050
  • THAT'S A WELL-USED BIBLE.
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:34.230
  • THEY SAY A BIBLE THAT'S FALLING APART IS USUALLY
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:36.280
  • AN INDICATION OF A LIFE THAT ISN'T.
  • 00:00:37.010 --> 00:00:38.270
  • OKAY. SO I LIKE TO SEE BEAT UP BIBLES.
  • 00:00:39.000 --> 00:00:41.190
  • I LIKE TO DRAW IN MY BIBLE, TOO.
  • 00:00:41.220 --> 00:00:43.200
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE ALL
  • 00:00:43.230 --> 00:00:44.240
  • THE LITTLE NOTES I TOOK.
  • 00:00:44.270 --> 00:00:46.030
  • TRY TO GET IN KIND OF TIGHT THERE BUT I WOULD
  • 00:00:46.060 --> 00:00:48.150
  • JUST YOU KNOW DRAW IN THE MARGINS. UNDERLINE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:00:48.180 --> 00:00:51.180
  • AND THEN OF COURSE I STARTED OUT DRAWING CARTOONS.
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:54.270
  • MY SOLE ASPIRATION IN LIFE WAS TO BE A CARTOONIST AND
  • 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:58.060
  • WHEN I BECAME A CHRISTIAN I THOUGHT WELL NOW I'LL BE
  • 00:00:58.090 --> 00:01:00.080
  • A CHRISTIAN CARTOONIST.
  • 00:01:00.110 --> 00:01:01.200
  • MAYBE I'LL DRAW FOR YOU A LITTLE BIT NEXT TIME.
  • 00:01:01.230 --> 00:01:04.030
  • BUT I WAS JUST DOODLING THE OTHER DAY.
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:06.060
  • I INVENTED THIS LITTLE CARTOON CHARACTER
  • 00:01:06.090 --> 00:01:08.020
  • CALLED BEN BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:01:08.050 --> 00:01:10.130
  • GET THE PLAY IN WORDS?
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:11.140
  • BEN BORN AGAIN. RIGHT.
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:13.110
  • SO THIS IS BEN BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:01:13.140 --> 00:01:16.050
  • I DREW THIS JUST THE OTHER DAY.
  • 00:01:16.080 --> 00:01:17.190
  • HERE'S YOUR CAMERA AGAIN.
  • 00:01:17.220 --> 00:01:18.210
  • SO THIS IS HIS DOG WITH HIM.
  • 00:01:18.240 --> 00:01:20.160
  • "CALLING ALL JESUS PEOPLE," HE'S SAYING.
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:22.080
  • AND SO OBVIOUSLY I WASN'T A VERY GOOD CARTOONIST,
  • 00:01:22.110 --> 00:01:25.240
  • BUT I WAS A CARTOONIST, NONETHELESS.
  • 00:01:25.270 --> 00:01:28.070
  • SO JUST A LITTLE TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE.
  • 00:01:28.100 --> 00:01:30.210
  • SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE JESUS REVOLUTION.
  • 00:01:30.240 --> 00:01:33.240
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING IN THE DAYS OF THE JESUS
  • 00:01:33.270 --> 00:01:37.160
  • MOVEMENT WE DIDN'T CALL IT THE JESUS REVOLUTION.
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:40.000
  • IT WAS TIME MAGAZINE THAT CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA.
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:42.290
  • THEY CALLED IT A REVOLUTION.
  • 00:01:43.020 --> 00:01:45.160
  • WE DIDN'T CALL IT THAT, BUT IN MANY WAYS
  • 00:01:45.190 --> 00:01:47.220
  • IT WAS A REVOLUTION.
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:50.010
  • WHAT IS A REVOLUTION?
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:51.230
  • GENERALLY WE THINK OF UPHEAVAL RADICAL CHANGE
  • 00:01:51.260 --> 00:01:55.190
  • LIKE THE FRENCH REVOLUTION.
  • 00:01:55.220 --> 00:01:57.150
  • BUT THE WORD REVOLUTION ALSO MEANS TURNING AROUND
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:02:00.270
  • AND RETURNING TO SOMETHING.
  • 00:02:01.000 --> 00:02:03.170
  • I THINK THAT'S REALLY WHAT WE NEED IN AMERICA.
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:06.130
  • WE NEED TO TURN BACK TO GOD.
  • 00:02:06.160 --> 00:02:09.030
  • YOU KNOW, I CAN'T THINK OF A TIME IN OUR NATION'S
  • 00:02:09.060 --> 00:02:11.250
  • HISTORY FOR THE YEARS I'VE BEEN ALIVE AND MAYBE EVEN
  • 00:02:11.280 --> 00:02:14.120
  • BEFORE AND STUDYING HISTORY WHEN AMERICA
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:17.210
  • HAS BEEN MORE DIVIDED THAN WE ARE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:21.270
  • AND WE LOVE TO POINT OUR FINGERS.
  • 00:02:22.000 --> 00:02:23.220
  • YOU KNOW WE POINT OUR FINGERS AT HOLLYWOOD AND
  • 00:02:23.250 --> 00:02:26.030
  • ALL THE JUNK THEY CHURN OUT AND THEY DO
  • 00:02:26.060 --> 00:02:28.080
  • DESERVE SOME BLAME OF COURSE.
  • 00:02:28.110 --> 00:02:30.020
  • OR WE POINT OUR FINGERS AT WASHINGTON D.C. OR AT THE
  • 00:02:30.050 --> 00:02:33.290
  • WHITE HOUSE BUT YOU KNOW WHEN A NATION IS BREAKING
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:36.150
  • DOWN, GOD DOES NOT POINT HIS FINGER AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
  • 00:02:36.180 --> 00:02:39.190
  • HE POINTS HIS FINGER AT HIS HOUSE - AT THE CHURCH
  • 00:02:39.220 --> 00:02:44.100
  • - BECAUSE REVIVAL, AS WE POINTED OUT LAST TIME,
  • 00:02:44.130 --> 00:02:47.160
  • IS WHAT THE CHURCH NEEDS TO EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:02:47.190 --> 00:02:49.210
  • I QUOTED THIS VERSE LAST TIME.
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:57.260
  • 2 CHRONICLES 7:14 IT'S REALLY GOD'S PRESCRIPTION
  • 00:02:57.290 --> 00:03:01.070
  • FOR REVIVAL OR RESTORATION AND IT APPLIES TO ANY
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:05.260
  • PERSON OR ANY NATION WHERE GOD SAYS IF MY PEOPLE,
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:08.220
  • WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:10.210
  • THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:13.260
  • THEIR WICKED WAY THEN I WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.
  • 00:03:13.290 --> 00:03:18.050
  • FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND.
  • 00:03:18.080 --> 00:03:20.290
  • SO I WANT TO TALK IN THIS TIME ABOUT PRAYER AND
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:25.030
  • REVIVAL BECAUSE THAT'S REALLY WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:03:25.060 --> 00:03:28.290
  • WE NEED TO START PRAYING LIKE WE'VE NEVER PRAYED BEFORE.
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:33.110
  • REVIVAL IS SORT OF LIKE BEING IN LOVE FOR THE
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:41.120
  • FIRST TIME OR IN THE BLOOM OF FIRST LOVE.
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:44.180
  • IN FACT, THE BIBLE EVEN COMPARES OUR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:47.170
  • WITH GOD TO THAT OF TWO NEWLY WEDS OR SOMEONE
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:51.280
  • IN THE FIRST LOVE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:54.120
  • IN FACT, IN THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS JESUS TALKS TO
  • 00:03:54.150 --> 00:03:57.030
  • THE CHURCH THERE AND SAYS, LOOSE PARAPHRASE: I KNOW
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:04:00.060
  • YOU GUYS ARE ACTIVE. I KNOW YOU'RE BUSY.
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:02.000
  • YOU'RE DOING A LOT OF GREAT STUFF, BUT HERE
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.230
  • IS MY ISSUE WITH YOU.
  • 00:04:03.260 --> 00:04:05.000
  • YOU'VE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE.
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:07.060
  • NOW HOW MANY OF YOU ARE IN LOVE WITH SOMEBODY RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:04:07.090 --> 00:04:10.040
  • RAISE YOUR HAND.
  • 00:04:10.070 --> 00:04:10.280
  • YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH SOMEBODY.
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:11.290
  • OKAY NOW HOW MANY OF YOU ARE MARRIED?
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:14.140
  • HOW MANY OF YOU ARE IN LOVE WITH YOUR SPOUSE?
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:17.190
  • I BETTER SEE THE SAME AMOUNT OF HANDS GO UP.
  • 00:04:17.220 --> 00:04:19.110
  • I KIND OF FEEL THERE WAS A FEW LESS HANDS ACTUALLY.
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:21.230
  • HOW MANY OF YOU ARE NOT MARRIED YET,
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.120
  • BUT YOU'RE IN LOVE SOMEBODY?
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:25.080
  • YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH SOMEBODY.
  • 00:04:25.110 --> 00:04:26.070
  • IT'S OKAY. OKAY.
  • 00:04:26.100 --> 00:04:27.110
  • ARE YOU WITH THEM HERE?
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:29.110
  • HAVE YOU TOLD THEM YET?
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:30.210
  • DO THEY KNOW OR IS THIS THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:04:30.240 --> 00:04:31.230
  • THEY'RE HEARING IT?
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:32.270
  • [laughter]
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.250
  • WHEN I WAS IN KID IN SCHOOL, I WAS ALWAYS
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:36.250
  • FALLING IN LOVE WITH GIRLS THAT NEVER KNEW I EXISTED.
  • 00:04:36.280 --> 00:04:39.290
  • I'D HAVE CRUSHES ON GIRLS. RIGHT.
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:42.200
  • SO MAYBE THERE'S SOMEONE YOU THINK, "I WONDER IF
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:45.050
  • THAT'S THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME."
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:46.130
  • SO YOU WRITE THEIR NAME AND YOUR NAME TOGETHER.
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:49.080
  • AND YOU PLAY AROUND WITH THEIR LAST NAME AS YOUR
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:52.240
  • LAST NAME IF YOU'RE A GIRL.
  • 00:04:52.270 --> 00:04:54.090
  • AND YOU KNOW THAT'S THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.230
  • PEOPLE THAT ARE IN LOVE DO AND YOU'VE GOT THE
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:59.010
  • BUTTERFLIES IN THE STOMACH AND YOU'RE NERVOUS AND
  • 00:04:59.040 --> 00:05:01.180
  • YOUR MOUTH GOES DRY AND ALL THOSE THINGS THAT
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:04.160
  • SPEAK OF A NEW LOVE.
  • 00:05:04.190 --> 00:05:06.160
  • AND THEN YOU GET MARRIED, OKAY, AND THEN THINGS CHANGE.
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:10.100
  • AS I'VE SAID, MARRIAGE IS A THREE-RING CIRCUS.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:14.010
  • THERE'S ENGAGEMENT RING, WEDDING RING, AND SUFFERING.
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:18.000
  • NO THAT'S A JOKE.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:19.160
  • BUT SOMETIMES IT'S THAT WAY, BUT I BRING THIS UP
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:24.010
  • AS AN ILLUSTRATION BECAUSE THIS CAN BE LIKE OUR
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:26.160
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:28.050
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU FIRST COME TO JESUS
  • 00:05:28.080 --> 00:05:29.220
  • YOU'RE ALL EXCITED.
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:30.290
  • YOU'RE ALL FIRED UP.
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:32.230
  • YOU WANT TO GO TO EVERY CHURCH SERVICE.
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:34.250
  • YOU CAN'T GO TO TOO MANY CHURCH SERVICES.
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:37.110
  • YOU CAN'T WAIT TO GET UP IN THE MORNING AND HEAR
  • 00:05:37.140 --> 00:05:39.130
  • WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO SAY TO YOU.
  • 00:05:39.160 --> 00:05:42.080
  • PRAYER, MAN, YOU JUST LOVE TO PRAY.
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:44.140
  • YOU'RE ALWAYS PRAYING.
  • 00:05:44.170 --> 00:05:45.240
  • IN FACT, SOMETIMES YOU PRAY TOO LONG WHICH
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:48.080
  • ISN'T THE WORSE THING A PERSON CAN DO.
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:50.240
  • SHARING YOUR FAITH - THAT'S JUST NATURAL.
  • 00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:52.240
  • YOU'RE ALWAYS INITIATING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:05:52.270 --> 00:05:56.210
  • CHRIST, BUT THE THING IS AS TIME PASSES WE START
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:06:00.160
  • TAKING THESE THINGS FOR GRANTED AND IT'S POSSIBLE
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:03.100
  • TO SORT OF LEAVE OUR FIRST LOVE.
  • 00:06:03.130 --> 00:06:06.120
  • YOU DON'T LOSE IT, BUT YOU CAN LEAVE IT.
  • 00:06:06.150 --> 00:06:09.050
  • SO SPEAKING TO PEOPLE WHO'VE LEFT THEIR FIRST
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:11.140
  • LOVE, JESUS SAYS, "REMEMBER FROM WHERE
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:13.280
  • YOU HAVE FALLEN, REPENT, AND DO THE FIRST WORKS QUICKLY."
  • 00:06:14.010 --> 00:06:17.260
  • SO THE THREE Rs OF GETTING RIGHT WITH GOD OR
  • 00:06:17.290 --> 00:06:20.160
  • WE COULD SAY THE THREE Rs OF REVIVAL ARE REMEMBER.
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:24.250
  • SO IF THERE WAS A TIME IN YOUR LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:26.290
  • WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD MORE FIRE FOR GOD, YOU HAD
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:30.190
  • MORE PASSION FOR JESUS, REMEMBER IT AS A POINT
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:33.160
  • OF REFERENCE. THEN REPENT.
  • 00:06:33.190 --> 00:06:36.150
  • LITERALLY REPENT. CHANGE YOUR DIRECTION.
  • 00:06:36.180 --> 00:06:40.070
  • THAT'S WHAT REPENT MEANS.
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:41.050
  • IT MEANS GO IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:42.270
  • AND THEN REPEAT.
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:44.020
  • DO THE FIRST WORKS QUICKLY.
  • 00:06:44.050 --> 00:06:46.010
  • LISTEN TO THIS, IF YOU WANT TO SEE A REVIVAL
  • 00:06:46.040 --> 00:06:48.190
  • THEN DO REVIVAL-LIKE THINGS.
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:51.290
  • SO INSTEAD OF OVERLY MYSTIFYING IT,
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:54.110
  • JUST GET BACK AND DO THOSE THINGS YOU USED TO DO.
  • 00:06:54.140 --> 00:06:57.010
  • DON'T WAIT FOR SOME EMOTION TO OVERCOME YOU.
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:06:59.050
  • JUST START YOUR DAY READING THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:01.280
  • IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT OR NOT.
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:03.230
  • TAKE MORE TIME TO BE WITH GOD'S PEOPLE IN WORSHIP.
  • 00:07:03.260 --> 00:07:06.220
  • TAKE MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO PRAY.
  • 00:07:06.250 --> 00:07:08.290
  • LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND SHARE YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:12.050
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL, WHEN THE
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:14.010
  • ECONOMY IS GOOD LIKE IT IS RIGHT NOW, WE MIGHT SAY
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:16.110
  • "WE DON'T REALLY NEED GOD ALL THAT MUCH."
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:18.120
  • TRUST ME. WE NEED GOD.
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:20.080
  • WE NEED GOD BADLY.
  • 00:07:20.110 --> 00:07:22.060
  • BUT MAYBE WE'RE JUST NOT WILLING TO REALIZE HOW
  • 00:07:22.090 --> 00:07:25.120
  • DESPERATE THE SITUATION REALLY IS.
  • 00:07:25.150 --> 00:07:30.100
  • WHAT IS REVIVAL?
  • 00:07:30.130 --> 00:07:32.030
  • CHARLES FINNEY WHO IS PART OF ONE OF THE GREAT
  • 00:07:32.060 --> 00:07:34.000
  • REVIVALS SAID "REVIVAL IS NOTHING MORE OR LESS THAN
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:37.220
  • A NEW BEGINNING OF OBEDIENCE TO GOD."
  • 00:07:37.250 --> 00:07:40.290
  • BILLY SUNDAY, A GREAT EVANGELIST, HE TALKED
  • 00:07:41.020 --> 00:07:45.180
  • ABOUT REVIVAL AND HE SAID THIS: "THEY TELL ME A
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:48.010
  • REVIVAL IS ONLY TEMPORARY.
  • 00:07:48.040 --> 00:07:50.010
  • SO IS A BATH, BUT IT DOES YOU GOOD."
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:53.090
  • SO IT'S A GOOD THING WHEN IT HAPPENS.
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:55.230
  • SO REVIVAL IS NOT ONLY RETURNING TO ONE'S FIRST
  • 00:07:55.260 --> 00:07:59.090
  • LOVE IN JESUS BUT IT'S ALSO WAKING UP FROM SLEEP.
  • 00:07:59.120 --> 00:08:03.210
  • OFTEN IN THE BIBLE, LETHARGY, LAZINESS, AND
  • 00:08:03.240 --> 00:08:08.200
  • SLEEP IS USED AS A PICTURE OF A PERSON THAT IS
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:11.170
  • COMPLACENT IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:14.210
  • IN ROMANS 13:11 IT SAYS IT'S MORE URGENT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:18.220
  • THE DAY OF THE LORD IS CLOSER THAN IT'S EVER BEEN.
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:21.180
  • TIME IS RUNNING OUT SO WAKE UP BECAUSE OUR
  • 00:08:21.210 --> 00:08:24.230
  • SALVATION IS SO CLOSE.
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:26.230
  • YOU KNOW THE FUNNY THING ABOUT GOING TO SLEEP IS
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:29.090
  • YOU DON'T ALWAYS KNOW THAT YOU'RE ASLEEP.
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:31.250
  • OTHERS DO BECAUSE YOU'RE SNORING, RIGHT.
  • 00:08:31.280 --> 00:08:34.040
  • BUT SOMETIMES WHEN MY WIFE AND I ARE DOZING OFF SHE
  • 00:08:34.070 --> 00:08:38.180
  • LIKES TO WATCH, HOW DO I PUT IT DELICATELY...?
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:41.140
  • BORING THINGS ON TV WHICH ACTUALLY HELPS BECAUSE I
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:44.200
  • WATCH THINGS THAT GET ME TOO STIMULATED AND
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:46.110
  • SHE'LL SAY "TURN THAT OFF!"
  • 00:08:46.140 --> 00:08:47.240
  • AND SHE LIKES TO WATCH THIS SHOW CALLED -
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.060
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE EVER SEEN IT -
  • 00:08:49.090 --> 00:08:50.180
  • THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF.
  • 00:08:50.210 --> 00:08:52.170
  • YOU EVER SEEN THAT SHOW?
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:53.230
  • SO IT'S LIKE THESE TWO PEOPLE,
  • 00:08:53.260 --> 00:08:55.230
  • PAUL HOLLYWOOD AND MARY BERRY.
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:58.290
  • NOW THEY HAVE ANOTHER LADY THEY DO IT WITH AND ALL
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:00.290
  • THESE PEOPLE COMPETE FROM AROUND ENGLAND AND THEY
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:03.150
  • ARE GIVEN THE CHALLENGE TO BAKE THIS OR MAKE THAT AND
  • 00:09:03.180 --> 00:09:06.210
  • THEN HE TESTS ALL THE THINGS AFTER THEY BAKE
  • 00:09:06.240 --> 00:09:10.030
  • THEM AND TO ME IT'S LIKE SO BORING SO I FALL ASLEEP.
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:14.120
  • CATHE WILL SAY, "ARE YOU SLEEPING?"
  • 00:09:14.150 --> 00:09:16.030
  • AND I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT I DENY IT.
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:17.240
  • "NO, I WASN'T SLEEPING."
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:18.250
  • WHY DO WE DENY IT WHEN WE'RE SLEEPING?
  • 00:09:18.280 --> 00:09:21.040
  • SOMEONE CALLS US AT THREE IN THE MORNING,
  • 00:09:21.070 --> 00:09:23.020
  • "WERE YOU SLEEPING?"
  • 00:09:23.050 --> 00:09:24.000
  • [gibberish]
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:25.290
  • YEAH!
  • 00:09:26.020 --> 00:09:27.010
  • AND YOU JUST WOKE ME UP THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:29.060
  • SO THAT'S HOW IT CAN BE SOMETIMES SPIRITUALLY.
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:32.090
  • YOU DON'T REALIZE THAT YOU'RE SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP.
  • 00:09:32.120 --> 00:09:36.050
  • REVIVAL IS GETTING BACK TO THE CHRISTIAN FAITH THAT
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:39.190
  • WAS LIVED OUT IN THE FIRST CENTURY.
  • 00:09:39.220 --> 00:09:43.210
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S BEEN SAID THAT REVIVAL IS WHEN GOD
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:47.000
  • GETS SO SICK AND TIRED OF BEING MISREPRESENTED,
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:50.020
  • HE SHOWS UP HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:50.050 --> 00:09:52.090
  • I WANT TO SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:09:52.120 --> 00:09:53.100
  • REVIVAL IS WHEN GOD GETS SO SICK AND TIRED OF
  • 00:09:53.130 --> 00:09:56.120
  • BEING MISREPRESENTED HE SHOWS UP HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:10:00.080
  • PERIODICALLY WE HAVE TO RESCUE JESUS
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:03.170
  • FROM MODERN DAY CHRISTIANITY.
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.120
  • IT GETS ALL CAUGHT UP IN RELIGIOUS STUFF AND
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:09.140
  • RITUALISTIC STUFF AND ALL KINDS OF THINGS THAT HAVE
  • 00:10:09.170 --> 00:10:13.000
  • NOTHING TO DO WITH JESUS.
  • 00:10:13.030 --> 00:10:15.000
  • THIS IS WHY WE CALLED IT THE JESUS MOVEMENT
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:18.170
  • AND THE JESUS REVOLUTION. EVERYTHING IS ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:23.230
  • WHEN WE'RE FOCUSED ON JESUS EVERYTHING SEEMS
  • 00:10:23.260 --> 00:10:26.220
  • TO FIND ITS RIGHT PLACE.
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:29.130
  • SO GOD WANTS TO SEND A REVIVAL.
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:31.280
  • ONE PERSON WROTE IT DOWN THIS WAY "IF ALL THE
  • 00:10:32.010 --> 00:10:36.010
  • SLEEPING PEOPLE WILL WAKE UP, IF ALL THE LUKEWARM
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:39.260
  • PEOPLE WILL FIRE UP, IF ALL OF THE DISHONEST
  • 00:10:39.290 --> 00:10:42.250
  • PEOPLE WILL CONFESS UP, IF ALL THE DISGRUNTLED PEOPLE
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:46.030
  • WILL CHEER UP, IF ALL THE ESTRANGED PEOPLE WILL MAKE
  • 00:10:46.060 --> 00:10:49.030
  • UP, IF ALL THE GOSSIPERS WILL SHUT UP, IF ALL TRUE
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:53.040
  • SOLDIERS WILL STAND UP, IF THE DRY BONES WILL SHAKE
  • 00:10:53.070 --> 00:10:56.130
  • UP, IF ALL THE CHURCH PEOPLE WILL PRAY UP,
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:10:59.080
  • THEN WE CAN HAVE A REVIVAL."
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:02.000
  • I LIKE THAT.
  • 00:11:02.030 --> 00:11:03.010
  • [applause]
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:07.110
  • I WISH I WROTE IT BUT I DIDN'T.
  • 00:11:07.140 --> 00:11:09.140
  • IT'S VERY WELL STATED.
  • 00:11:09.170 --> 00:11:11.220
  • SO HERE'S POINT NUMBER ONE IF YOU'RE TAKING NOTES.
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:14.140
  • OKAY SO ALL THESE FOLKS SITTING UP ON THE STAGE,
  • 00:11:25.070 --> 00:11:27.150
  • THEY'RE NOT JUST POTTED PLANTS YOU KNOW.
  • 00:11:27.180 --> 00:11:29.280
  • THEY HAVE LOTS OF THINGS TO SAY
  • 00:11:30.010 --> 00:11:32.040
  • AND WE LOVE HAVING THEM UP HERE.
  • 00:11:32.070 --> 00:11:34.090
  • SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PRAYER, YOU GUYS, AND I'LL
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:36.230
  • TELL YOU ONE PERSON ON THIS STAGE THAT IS ALWAYS
  • 00:11:36.260 --> 00:11:39.100
  • THE QUICKEST PERSON TO PRAY THAT I KNOW OF.
  • 00:11:39.130 --> 00:11:41.290
  • HER NAME IS ALLIE LAURIE. RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:11:42.020 --> 00:11:44.210
  • AND YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 00:11:44.240 --> 00:11:45.250
  • WHENEVER WE HAVE A MEAL WE SAY,
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:48.000
  • "OKAY, WHO WANTS TO PRAY?"
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:49.080
  • TO THE GRANDKIDS, ALLIE'S ALWAYS "I DO, POPPA!"
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:52.100
  • AND SHE PRAYS GREAT LITTLE PRAYERS.
  • 00:11:52.130 --> 00:11:54.130
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:55.080
  • WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE EAGER TO PRAY.
  • 00:11:55.110 --> 00:11:57.070
  • WHY DO YOU THINK IT IS THAT WE DON'T ALWAYS
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:59.220
  • WANT TO PRAY? IS PRAYER PAINFUL?
  • 00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:03.000
  • WHEN YOU PRAY, IS IT LIKE GETTING A ROOT CANAL? NO.
  • 00:12:03.030 --> 00:12:06.150
  • BUT YET, "I'LL TRY THIS AND I'LL TRY THAT.
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:09.280
  • OH, I GUESS ALL WE CAN DO NOW IS PRAY."
  • 00:12:10.010 --> 00:12:12.110
  • THAT'S THE FIRST THING WE SHOULD DO BECAUSE DOESN'T
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:14.080
  • THE BIBLE SAY PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.
  • 00:12:14.110 --> 00:12:16.180
  • DON'T WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING AND THE PEACE OF GOD THAT
  • 00:12:16.210 --> 00:12:19.190
  • PASSES ALL HUMAN UNDERSTANDING WILL GUARD OUR
  • 00:12:19.220 --> 00:12:22.090
  • HEARTS AND MINDS IN JESUS.
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:24.030
  • TIM, I THINK SOME OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE UP HERE
  • 00:12:24.060 --> 00:12:27.050
  • HAD SOME QUESTIONS. GO AHEAD.
  • 00:12:27.080 --> 00:12:28.280
  • SO EARLIER YOU TALKED ABOUT WAKING UP FROM YOUR
  • 00:12:29.010 --> 00:12:33.200
  • SLEEP AND SO MY QUESTION WAS, WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:36.040
  • WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT WE CAN BE DOING IN OUR
  • 00:12:36.070 --> 00:12:38.170
  • LIVES THAT ARE HINDERING TO OUR PRAYER LIVES
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:40.260
  • WITHOUT US EVEN REALIZING?
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:42.160
  • THAT'S A MESSAGE ALL BY ITSELF, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:42.190 --> 00:12:45.000
  • HERE'S SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT WITH SLEEP.
  • 00:12:45.030 --> 00:12:47.170
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN I GET SLEEPY IS WHEN I OVEREAT.
  • 00:12:47.200 --> 00:12:51.220
  • I GET REAL TIRED.
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:53.230
  • THINK ABOUT THANKSGIVING WHEN WE ALL COMMIT
  • 00:12:53.260 --> 00:12:55.170
  • THE SIN OF GLUTTONY NATIONALLY, RIGHT.
  • 00:12:55.200 --> 00:12:58.070
  • SO WE EAT TURKEY AND MASHED POTATOES WITH GRAVY
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:13:01.180
  • AND SWEET POTATOES, MAYBE WITH MELTED MARSHMALLOWS -
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:04.200
  • AT LEAST WE DO THAT - AND THEN YOU HAVE BISCUITS OR
  • 00:13:04.230 --> 00:13:07.060
  • CORNBREAD OR MUFFINS OR YOU KNOW ROLLS OR
  • 00:13:07.090 --> 00:13:09.290
  • SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND THEN OF COURSE PUMPKIN PIE.
  • 00:13:10.020 --> 00:13:12.040
  • I THINK IT'S A LAW YOU HAVE TO HAVE PUMPKIN PIE
  • 00:13:12.070 --> 00:13:14.080
  • ON THANKSGIVING BUT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:13:14.110 --> 00:13:16.080
  • BUT I WANT TO GO INTO A COMA AFTERWARDS AND THEN YOU
  • 00:13:16.110 --> 00:13:18.290
  • WAKE UP AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:20.080
  • YOU GO HAVE A TURKEY SANDWICH OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:20.110 --> 00:13:22.160
  • BUT SO HERE'S THE FUNNY THING ABOUT SLEEP, YOU
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:25.250
  • KNOW, IT'S NOT ALWAYS JUST A BAD THING.
  • 00:13:25.280 --> 00:13:27.290
  • IT CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU'VE BEEN FED REALLY WELL.
  • 00:13:28.020 --> 00:13:30.170
  • SO YOU KNOW YOU CAN COME TO CHURCH AND BE FED THE
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:33.030
  • WORD OF GOD AND STUDY THE WORD OF GOD AND ACTUALLY,
  • 00:13:33.060 --> 00:13:35.210
  • HOW SHALL I PUT IT, I DON'T WANT TO SAY OVEREAT
  • 00:13:35.240 --> 00:13:38.190
  • BECAUSE I DON'T THINK YOU CAN OVER STUDY THE BIBLE,
  • 00:13:38.220 --> 00:13:41.220
  • BUT LET ME SAY IT THIS WAY, YOU CAN STUDY THE
  • 00:13:41.250 --> 00:13:44.140
  • BIBLE WITHOUT ANY APPLICATION IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:13:44.170 --> 00:13:47.110
  • OR PUTTING IT INTO ACTION.
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:49.160
  • SEE IF YOU JUST EAT AND YOU DON'T EXERCISE, YOU'RE
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:52.230
  • JUST GOING TO BECOME SPIRITUALLY OBESE.
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:56.080
  • YOU'LL BE A REAL HOLY ROLLER.
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:58.090
  • WE'LL HAVE TO ROLL YOU OUT OF THE CHURCH RIGHT.
  • 00:13:58.120 --> 00:14:01.040
  • SO I THINK THERE HAS TO BE A PLACE FOR UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:14:01.070 --> 00:14:03.270
  • WE NEED TO GIVE OUT WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO US.
  • 00:14:04.000 --> 00:14:06.140
  • WE'RE BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING.
  • 00:14:06.170 --> 00:14:08.020
  • BUT THERE ARE THINGS THAT CAN HINDER OUR PRAYER LIFE.
  • 00:14:08.050 --> 00:14:10.130
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IF WE HAVE IDOLS IN OUR HEART
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:15.050
  • THE LORD WILL NOT LISTEN TO US.
  • 00:14:15.080 --> 00:14:17.150
  • SO WHAT'S AN IDOL?
  • 00:14:17.180 --> 00:14:18.220
  • WELL, FOR TIM IT'S HIS GUITAR AND
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:20.240
  • IT HAS BEEN FOR YEARS.
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:22.070
  • NO I'M KIDDING. IT ISN'T.
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:24.250
  • WELL I DON'T KNOW. IT MIGHT BE.
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:26.170
  • BUT YOU KNOW AN IDOL CAN BE ANYTHING.
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:29.030
  • IT COULD BE A GUITAR. IT COULD BE A CAR.
  • 00:14:29.060 --> 00:14:31.090
  • IT COULD BE A HOUSE. IT COULD BE YOUR BODY.
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:33.010
  • IT COULD BE SOME DEVICE THAT YOU HAVE -
  • 00:14:33.040 --> 00:14:36.220
  • A PHONE OR WHATEVER ELSE. IT COULD BE A CAREER.
  • 00:14:36.250 --> 00:14:40.130
  • IT COULD BE SO MANY THINGS THAT YOU'RE MORE
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:43.090
  • PASSIONATE ABOUT THAN GOD.
  • 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:45.020
  • SO THE IDEA OF NOT HAVING ANOTHER GOD BEFORE HIM IS
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:48.010
  • MAKE GOD NUMBER ONE IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:14:48.040 --> 00:14:50.120
  • THE FIRST COMMANDMENT IS PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:14:50.150 --> 00:14:53.000
  • "HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME."
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:55.240
  • AND THEN HE SAYS DON'T MAKE ANY GRAVEN IMAGES.
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:57.210
  • SO IF WE HAVE AN IDOL IN OUR HEART, GOD WON'T HEAR US.
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:15:01.030
  • ANOTHER THING THAT CAN HINDER OUR PRAYER
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:03.150
  • IS UNCONFESSED SIN.
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:05.090
  • YOU KNOW, BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE HAVE
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:08.260
  • INEQUITY IN OUR HEARTS, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR US.
  • 00:15:08.290 --> 00:15:11.250
  • SO I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:13.130
  • TO CONFESS OUR SIN.
  • 00:15:13.160 --> 00:15:15.030
  • IN FACT, THAT KIND OF BRINGS US TO THE TEXT
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:16.270
  • I WANT TO LOOK AT.
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:17.280
  • I SHOULD'VE TOLD YOU TO TURN THERE EARLIER.
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:20.000
  • IT'S NEHEMIAH CHAPTER 9.
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:21.200
  • THIS IS A STORY OF A MASSIVE PRAYER MEETING
  • 00:15:21.230 --> 00:15:24.200
  • THAT HAPPENED AND THIS PRAYER MEETING TOOK PLACE
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:29.180
  • AFTER THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WHO HAD BEEN HELD CAPTIVE
  • 00:15:29.210 --> 00:15:33.090
  • IN BABYLON FOR 70 YEARS WERE FREED, TALK ABOUT IDOLS!
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:37.240
  • THEY WERE LIKE IN IDOL CENTRAL.
  • 00:15:37.270 --> 00:15:39.270
  • THERE WERE IDOLS EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:41.010
  • IN FACT, THE REASON THEY ENDED UP IN BABYLON IS THE
  • 00:15:41.040 --> 00:15:43.210
  • ISRAELITES KEPT TAKING GOD FOR GRANTED AND TURNING TO
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:46.010
  • THESE STUPID FALSE GODS SO THE LORD SAID, "OKAY, YOU
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:49.170
  • GUYS WANT FALSE GODS AND IDOLS?
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:51.050
  • I'LL SEND YOU TO A PLACE WHERE YOU'LL HAVE MORE
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:53.090
  • THAN YOU CAN SHAKE A STICK AT."
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:55.040
  • AFTER 70 YEARS IN BABYLON, THEY WERE ALLOWED TO
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:58.150
  • RETURN TO JERUSALEM AND REBUILD THE WALLS OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:16:03.020
  • THEY WERE LED BY NEHEMIAH.
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:05.060
  • SO AFTER THE WALLS WERE REBUILT AND EVERYBODY WAS
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:08.070
  • BACK IN THE LAND, A PROPHET PRIEST NAMED EZRA
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:13.140
  • GAVE A POWERFUL MESSAGE, AND AFTER HE WAS DONE
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:17.130
  • SPEAKING, THE PEOPLE PRAYED. SO NEHEMIAH 9:1-4.
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:22.050
  • I'M READING FROM THE NEW LIVING TRANSLATION.
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:24.020
  • SO DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT SERVICES GOING TOO LONG.
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:58.260
  • I MEAN CHECK THIS OUT.
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:00.150
  • FOR THREE HOURS THEY CONFESSED THEIR SINS
  • 00:17:00.180 --> 00:17:03.040
  • AND WORSHIPPED THE LORD.
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:04.200
  • FOR THREE HOURS THEY STOOD IN PLACE HEARING THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:17:04.230 --> 00:17:09.060
  • SO THAT SOUNDS LIKE REVIVAL TO ME.
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:12.040
  • SO WHAT DID THEY DO?
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:13.190
  • THEY PRAYED WITH PASSION AND THEY CONFESSED THEIR SINS.
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:17.020
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE WILL CONFESS OUR SIN HE'S
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:20.080
  • FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SIN AND
  • 00:17:20.110 --> 00:17:22.210
  • CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:24.230
  • THE PROBLEM IS PEOPLE WILL SAY TODAY,
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:26.200
  • "I DON'T REALLY THINK THAT'S A SIN.
  • 00:17:26.230 --> 00:17:29.020
  • MY OPINION IS THIS IS NOT A SIN AND THAT IS A SIN."
  • 00:17:29.050 --> 00:17:32.210
  • WELL IT'S REALLY NOT UP TO YOU OR ME
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:35.020
  • TO DECIDE WHAT A SIN IS.
  • 00:17:35.050 --> 00:17:37.040
  • WE DETERMINE WHAT SIN IS BY WHAT GOD SAYS AND
  • 00:17:37.070 --> 00:17:39.270
  • ACTUALLY THE WORD CONFESS MEANS TO AGREE WITH GOD.
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:42.220
  • THE WAY WE KNOW WHAT GOD THINKS ABOUT THINGS IS
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:46.050
  • BY READING THE BIBLE.
  • 00:17:46.080 --> 00:17:47.260
  • SO THEY READ THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:17:47.290 --> 00:17:49.140
  • THEY HEARD THE MIND OF GOD.
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:51.150
  • THEN THEY KNEW WHAT SINS TO CONFESS.
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:53.230
  • I THINK SOMETIMES WE THINK OF SINS AS JUST BREAKING A
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:56.260
  • COMMANDMENT, AND SINS ARE THAT WHEN YOU STEP OVER A
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:18:00.180
  • LINE OR YOU DO A THING THAT THE BIBLE TELLS YOU,
  • 00:18:00.210 --> 00:18:04.010
  • YOU SHOULD NOT DO LIKE BREAK ONE OF THE COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:18:04.040 --> 00:18:06.210
  • SOME PREACHER RECENTLY SAID HE DOESN'T THINK
  • 00:18:06.240 --> 00:18:08.270
  • WE NEED THE 10 COMMANDMENTS ANYMORE.
  • 00:18:09.000 --> 00:18:10.280
  • I COULD NOT DIFFER MORE FROM THAT.
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:13.130
  • GOD GAVE US THE VERY 10 COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:15.180
  • THEY'RE WRITTEN BY THE FINGER OF GOD.
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:18.030
  • NOW HE WANTS US TO GO BEYOND THEM BECAUSE IN
  • 00:18:18.060 --> 00:18:21.010
  • THE COMMANDMENTS, JESUS POINTED OUT IN THE SERMON
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:23.220
  • ON THE MOUNT, "YOU'VE HEARD IT HAS BEEN SAID, 'YOU
  • 00:18:23.250 --> 00:18:25.270
  • SHALL NOT MURDER,' BUT I SAY TO YOU IF YOU'RE ANGRY
  • 00:18:26.000 --> 00:18:28.010
  • WITH YOUR BROTHER WITHOUT A CAUSE IT'S THE SAME THING."
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:30.130
  • OR "YOU'VE HEARD OF THE LAW 'YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:32.110
  • ADULTERY'" THAT'S ONE OF THE COMMANDMENTS, "BUT I
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:34.080
  • SAY TO YOU IF YOU LOOK AT A WOMAN WITH LUST IN YOUR
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:36.090
  • HEART, YOU'VE COMMITTED ADULTERY SO HE WANTS US TO
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:39.250
  • GO FURTHER THAN THEM BUT HE CERTAINLY DOESN'T WANT
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:41.290
  • US TO DO AWAY WITH THEM, BUT THEY HELP US KNOW
  • 00:18:42.020 --> 00:18:44.240
  • WHAT RIGHT AND WRONG ARE.
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:46.140
  • BUT THEN THERE ARE OTHER KINDS OF SINS.
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:48.100
  • NOT JUST SINS OF COMMISSION BUT SINS OF OMISSION.
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:51.170
  • DOES ANYONE UP HERE KNOW WHAT THE SIN OF OMISSION IS?
  • 00:18:51.200 --> 00:18:54.070
  • IF YOU KNOW, RAISE YOUR HAND. OKAY.
  • 00:18:54.100 --> 00:18:56.170
  • THE SIN OF OMISSION IS WHEN YOU DON'T
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:59.220
  • DO WHAT YOU SHOULD DO.
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:02.010
  • THE SIN OF COMMISSION IS WHEN YOU DO
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:04.010
  • WHAT YOU SHOULD NOT DO.
  • 00:19:04.040 --> 00:19:06.020
  • AGAIN, THE SIN OF COMMISSION IS WHEN YOU DO
  • 00:19:06.050 --> 00:19:07.240
  • WHAT YOU SHOULD NOT DO - BREAK A COMMANDMENT,
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:10.020
  • CROSS THE LINE.
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:11.110
  • THE SIN OF OMISSION IS WHEN YOU DON'T DO WHAT YOU
  • 00:19:11.140 --> 00:19:14.220
  • SHOULD DO BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE KNOW TO
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:18.190
  • DO GOOD AND WE DON'T DO IT, IT'S SIN.
  • 00:19:18.220 --> 00:19:21.100
  • WE DON'T THINK OF SIN THAT WAY.
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:23.150
  • "I DIDN'T THINK LUSTFULLY TODAY AND I DIDN'T CUT
  • 00:19:23.180 --> 00:19:26.120
  • ANYBODY OFF IN THE FREEWAY AND I DIDN'T CUSS ONCE AND
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:29.240
  • I DIDN'T LIE AND I DIDN'T STEAL SO I GUESS I HAVEN'T
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:32.270
  • SINNED," AND THE LORD LED YOU, "WHY DON'T YOU GO
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:35.110
  • OVER THERE AND SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH
  • 00:19:35.140 --> 00:19:36.220
  • THAT PERSON RIGHT NOW?"
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:37.230
  • "THERE'S NO WAY I'M GOING TO DO THAT."
  • 00:19:37.260 --> 00:19:39.230
  • WAIT. COULD THAT BE A SIN?
  • 00:19:39.260 --> 00:19:41.160
  • COULD THAT BE THE SIN OF OMISSION?
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.240
  • IF THE LORD SPOKE TO YOUR HEART AND SAID, "PUT DOWN
  • 00:19:44.270 --> 00:19:47.020
  • THE CELL PHONE AND PICK UP MY WORD," AND YOU SAID NO,
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:50.280
  • COULD IT BE A SIN TO NOT OBEY GOD?
  • 00:19:51.010 --> 00:19:53.010
  • AGAIN, TO HIM THAT KNOWS TO DO GO GOOD AND DOES NOT
  • 00:19:53.040 --> 00:19:55.100
  • DO IT, TO HIM IT IS SIN.
  • 00:19:55.130 --> 00:19:56.230
  • SO THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS THAT CAN QUALIFY AS SIN SO
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:59.150
  • THINK WE HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:59.180 --> 00:20:02.210
  • THAT IS WHY IN THE LORD'S PRAYER, WHICH IS A
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:06.030
  • TEMPLATE FOR ALL PRAYER, HE SHOWS US WE SHOULD ASK
  • 00:20:06.060 --> 00:20:10.000
  • GOD TO FORGIVE US OF OUR SIN EVERYDAY.
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:12.220
  • GO BACK TO IT AGAIN.
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:13.290
  • OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE YOUR
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:15.170
  • NAME, YOUR KINGDOM COME, YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH
  • 00:20:15.200 --> 00:20:18.160
  • AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY
  • 00:20:18.190 --> 00:20:22.210
  • BREAD AND FORGIVE US OUR SIN AS WE FORGIVE THOSE
  • 00:20:22.240 --> 00:20:25.230
  • WHO'VE SINNED AGAINST US.
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:27.140
  • JUST AS SURELY AS YOU NEED DAILY BREAD, AND THAT JUST
  • 00:20:27.170 --> 00:20:31.040
  • MEANS YOU NEED EVERYTHING FROM GOD.
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:33.070
  • BREAD MEANS FOOD, CLOTHING.
  • 00:20:33.100 --> 00:20:34.230
  • IT'S FUNNY BACK IN THE 60S WE USED
  • 00:20:34.260 --> 00:20:36.200
  • TO CALL MONEY "BREAD."
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:38.220
  • "HEY, MAN, YOU GOT ANY BREAD?" OKAY.
  • 00:20:38.250 --> 00:20:40.230
  • SO BUT THAT'S REALLY TRUE.
  • 00:20:40.260 --> 00:20:42.200
  • BREAD JUST MEANS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:20:42.230 --> 00:20:44.160
  • EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN LIFE, YOU ASK GOD FOR IT
  • 00:20:44.190 --> 00:20:46.280
  • BUT THEN FORGIVE US OUR SINS.
  • 00:20:47.010 --> 00:20:49.120
  • SO JUST AS SURELY AS I NEED TO ASK GOD FOR HIS
  • 00:20:49.150 --> 00:20:52.080
  • PROVISION I NEED TO ALSO ASK GOD FOR HIS FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:20:52.110 --> 00:20:56.120
  • YOU SIN MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU DO.
  • 00:20:56.150 --> 00:20:58.120
  • LET ME RESTATE THAT.
  • 00:20:58.150 --> 00:20:59.120
  • WE SIN MORE THAN WE THINK WE DO.
  • 00:20:59.150 --> 00:21:01.210
  • SO THEY CONFESSED THEIR SINS.
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:05.010
  • NUMBER TWO:
  • 00:21:05.040 --> 00:21:06.050
  • THEY SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM UNGODLY INFLUENCES.
  • 00:21:06.080 --> 00:21:14.050
  • VERSE 2 SAYS THEY SEPARATED THEMSELVES
  • 00:21:14.080 --> 00:21:16.080
  • FROM ALL FOREIGNERS.
  • 00:21:16.110 --> 00:21:18.080
  • OUR MODERN CONTEXT WOULD BE GETTING
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:19.280
  • AWAY FROM BAD INFLUENCES.
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:22.220
  • WE ALL KNOW PEOPLE THAT DRAG US DOWN DON'T WE?
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:27.180
  • AND WE ALL KNOW PEOPLE THAT PULL US UP.
  • 00:21:27.210 --> 00:21:30.180
  • SOME PEOPLE WHEN YOU'RE WITH THEM YOU'RE
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:32.160
  • JUST A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO JESUS.
  • 00:21:32.190 --> 00:21:34.120
  • THEY INSPIRE YOU TO BE A MORE GODLY PERSON.
  • 00:21:34.150 --> 00:21:37.090
  • OTHER PEOPLE, THEY'RE ALWAYS MOCKING YOU.
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:40.000
  • CHALLENGING YOU. ARGUING WITH YOU.
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:42.240
  • PUSHING BACK IN ANYTHING YOU SAY REGARDING YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:21:42.270 --> 00:21:46.130
  • YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHO YOU HANG OUT WITH.
  • 00:21:46.160 --> 00:21:49.180
  • IM NOT SUGGESTING YOU ONLY HANG OUT WITH CHRISTIANS
  • 00:21:49.210 --> 00:21:52.000
  • BECAUSE HOW CAN WE LEAD PEOPLE TO CHRIST IF
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:54.210
  • WE DON'T HANG OUT WITH NONBELIEVERS?
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:56.180
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WE ARE TO
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:22:01.100
  • FLEE YOUTHFUL LUST AND FOLLOW FAITH, RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:22:01.130 --> 00:22:05.240
  • AND PEACE, LISTEN, ALONG WITH THOSE THAT CALL ON
  • 00:22:05.270 --> 00:22:08.160
  • THE LORD OUT OF A PURE HEART.
  • 00:22:08.190 --> 00:22:10.190
  • FIND GODLY PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:10.220 --> 00:22:12.240
  • HANG OUT WITH GODLY PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:14.190
  • WHEN I WAS A YOUNG CHRISTIAN, JUST A KID LIKE SOME OF YOU
  • 00:22:14.220 --> 00:22:17.130
  • ARE, I HUNG AROUND WITH A LOT OF OLDER PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:17.160 --> 00:22:20.270
  • I KNEW SOME PEOPLE MY AGE AS WELL, BUT I FOUND
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:23.160
  • PEOPLE THAT WERE OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY PARENTS
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:25.200
  • WHO COULD BE GOOD ROLE MODELS FOR ME SO I COULD
  • 00:22:25.230 --> 00:22:28.120
  • LEARN HOW TO BE A MORE GODLY VERSION OF ME.
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:31.280
  • I'D RECOMMEND YOU DO THE SAME THING.
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:34.060
  • THIRDLY, THEY HEARD GOD'S WORD AND THEY ACTED ON IT.
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:37.260
  • THAT WAS AFTER THREE HOURS OF LISTENING TO THE WORD.
  • 00:22:37.290 --> 00:22:42.090
  • BY THE WAY, WHEN WE LISTEN TO THE WORD OF GOD, IT'S
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:44.220
  • NOT FOR US TO PICK AND CHOOSE WHAT PARTS WE LIKE
  • 00:22:44.250 --> 00:22:48.080
  • AND WHAT PARTS WE DON'T LIKE EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:22:48.110 --> 00:22:49.160
  • I RIPPED A PAGE OUT OF MY BIBLE.
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:51.180
  • BUT I DIDN'T REALLY DO IT ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:53.140
  • I JUST GOT A LITTLE CARRIED AWAY.
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:55.080
  • I'M NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT PAGE IN
  • 00:22:55.110 --> 00:22:56.210
  • PARTICULAR BUT YOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE WILL KIND
  • 00:22:56.240 --> 00:22:58.270
  • OF EDIT THINGS OUT.
  • 00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:00.090
  • THEY'LL SAY THINGS LIKE THIS: "MY GOD WOULD NEVER
  • 00:23:00.120 --> 00:23:03.220
  • SAY THAT ABOUT A PERSON.
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:05.250
  • MY GOD IS ALL LOVING..."
  • 00:23:05.280 --> 00:23:07.110
  • WELL I DON'T KNOW WHO YOUR GOD IS BUT HE MAY NOT
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:11.110
  • BE THE GOD OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:23:11.140 --> 00:23:13.040
  • HE MIGHT JUST BE A FIGMENT OF YOUR IMAGINATION.
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:16.010
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE GOD AND HE REVEALS
  • 00:23:16.040 --> 00:23:18.120
  • HIMSELF IN THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:23:18.150 --> 00:23:20.020
  • HE SAYS "LO IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK I HAVE COME.
  • 00:23:20.050 --> 00:23:22.270
  • IT IS WRITTEN OF ME." SO YOU WANT TO KNOW AGAIN,
  • 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:25.280
  • THE MIND OF GOD, THE NATURE OF GOD,
  • 00:23:26.010 --> 00:23:28.060
  • THE WILL OF GOD, OPEN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:23:28.090 --> 00:23:31.100
  • IN FACT, EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GOD
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:33.180
  • IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:23:33.210 --> 00:23:36.010
  • YOU DON'T NEED TO LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE,
  • 00:23:36.040 --> 00:23:38.060
  • SO THEY DID THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:23:38.090 --> 00:23:40.050
  • YOU KNOW, JESUS SAID "YOU ARE MY FRIENDS IF YOU DO
  • 00:23:40.080 --> 00:23:43.150
  • WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU."
  • 00:23:43.180 --> 00:23:46.200
  • HE DIDN'T SAY YOU'RE MY FRIENDS IF YOU DO
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:48.270
  • WHATSOEVER YOU AGREE WITH OR WHATSOEVER YOU FIND
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:52.250
  • EASY OR WHATSOEVER IS CULTURALLY COOL.
  • 00:23:52.280 --> 00:23:56.220
  • HE SAID YOU'RE MY FRIENDS IF YOU DO
  • 00:23:56.250 --> 00:23:58.260
  • WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU.
  • 00:23:58.290 --> 00:24:01.280
  • SO IT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE
  • 00:24:02.010 --> 00:24:04.270
  • IS A PACKAGED DEAL AS IS THE CHRISTIAN LIFE AND WE
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:08.240
  • DO IT GOD'S WAY OR WE'RE NOT DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY.
  • 00:24:08.270 --> 00:24:12.000
  • LISTEN TO WHAT GOD TOLD JOSHUA IN JOSHUA 1.
  • 00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:15.160
  • HE SAYS, "BE CAREFUL TO OBEY ALL THE
  • 00:24:15.190 --> 00:24:17.070
  • INSTRUCTIONS MOSES GAVE YOU.
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:18.280
  • DON'T DEVIATE FROM THEM.
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:20.150
  • TURNING TO THE RIGHT OR THE LEFT, THEN GOD SAYS,
  • 00:24:20.180 --> 00:24:23.000
  • YOU'LL BE SUCCESSFUL IN EVERYTHING YOU DO.
  • 00:24:23.030 --> 00:24:25.140
  • STUDY THIS BOOK CONTINUOUSLY.
  • 00:24:25.170 --> 00:24:27.260
  • MEDITATE ON IT DAY AND NIGHT SO YOU'LL BE SURE
  • 00:24:27.290 --> 00:24:30.200
  • TO OBEY EVERYTHING WRITTEN IN IT AND THEN YOU WILL
  • 00:24:30.230 --> 00:24:33.010
  • PROSPER AND SUCCEED IN ALL THAT YOU DO.
  • 00:24:33.040 --> 00:24:36.220
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO MEDITATE IN THE WORD?
  • 00:24:36.250 --> 00:24:39.280
  • YOU KNOW, WE USE THE WORD MEDITATION IN AN EASTERN
  • 00:24:40.010 --> 00:24:44.090
  • SENSE IT MEANS TO EMPTY YOUR MIND.
  • 00:24:44.120 --> 00:24:46.090
  • WHEN YOU USE THE WORD MEDITATE IN A BIBLICAL
  • 00:24:46.120 --> 00:24:48.110
  • SENSE IT MEANS TO FILL YOUR MIND, BUT IT'S NOT
  • 00:24:48.140 --> 00:24:51.110
  • JUST JAMMING AS MANY CHAPTERS IN IT THAT
  • 00:24:51.140 --> 00:24:54.120
  • YOU CAN GET IN THERE.
  • 00:24:54.150 --> 00:24:55.150
  • I'VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY, "I'VE READ 10 CHAPTERS
  • 00:24:55.180 --> 00:24:57.050
  • FROM THE BIBLE TODAY." FANTASTIC.
  • 00:24:57.080 --> 00:24:59.040
  • WHAT CHAPTERS WHERE THEY?
  • 00:24:59.070 --> 00:25:00.140
  • "I HAVE NO IDEA. I REMEMBER NOTHING."
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:03.150
  • YOU'D BE BETTER OFF TO READ 10 VERSES WITH
  • 00:25:03.180 --> 00:25:06.110
  • COMPREHENSION THAN 10 CHAPTERS WITHOUT IT.
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:09.150
  • SO YOU READ IT. YOU THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:25:09.180 --> 00:25:11.250
  • YOU CHEW IT OVER. YOU MEDITATE ON IT.
  • 00:25:11.280 --> 00:25:15.140
  • YOU CONSIDER IT THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
  • 00:25:15.170 --> 00:25:17.230
  • THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE ON HOW TO BE
  • 00:25:17.260 --> 00:25:20.210
  • A STRONG AND GROWING CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:25:20.240 --> 00:25:22.150
  • REVIVAL DOESN'T HAVE TO BE OVERLY MYSTICAL.
  • 00:25:22.180 --> 00:25:25.160
  • IT'S JUST GETTING BACK AND DOING THOSE
  • 00:25:25.190 --> 00:25:27.110
  • THINGS WE SHOULD'VE BEEN DOING ALL ALONG.
  • 00:25:27.140 --> 00:25:29.220
  • HERE'S A REALLY INTERESTING STATEMENT FROM
  • 00:25:29.250 --> 00:25:32.020
  • A MAN THAT WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH THE GREAT
  • 00:25:32.050 --> 00:25:35.160
  • EVANGELIST KNOWN AS D. L. MOODY.
  • 00:25:35.190 --> 00:25:37.190
  • THIS GUY WAS NAMED R. A TORREY.
  • 00:25:37.220 --> 00:25:39.200
  • BACK IN THOSE DAYS THEY LIKED TO USE
  • 00:25:39.230 --> 00:25:41.070
  • INITIALS INSTEAD OF NAMES.
  • 00:25:41.100 --> 00:25:42.150
  • SO R. A. TORREY WHO WORKED WITH
  • 00:25:42.180 --> 00:25:44.150
  • D. L. MOODY MADE THIS STATEMENT.
  • 00:25:44.180 --> 00:25:47.050
  • HE SAYS, "I CAN GIVE A PRESCRIPTION THAT WILL
  • 00:25:47.080 --> 00:25:49.200
  • BRING A REVIVAL TO ANY CHURCH OR ANY COMMUNITY
  • 00:25:49.230 --> 00:25:53.220
  • OR ANY CITY ON EARTH.
  • 00:25:53.250 --> 00:25:56.170
  • NUMBER ONE: LET A FEW CHRISTIANS, IT DOESN'T
  • 00:25:56.200 --> 00:25:59.130
  • HAVE TO BE MANY, GET THOROUGHLY RIGHT WITH GOD."
  • 00:25:59.160 --> 00:26:03.040
  • AGAIN, LET A FEW CHRISTIANS GET
  • 00:26:03.070 --> 00:26:04.270
  • THOROUGHLY RIGHT WITH GOD.
  • 00:26:05.000 --> 00:26:06.290
  • HE SAYS, "THIS IS THE PRIME ESSENTIAL.
  • 00:26:07.020 --> 00:26:08.190
  • IF THIS IS NOT DONE, THE REST I SAY WILL
  • 00:26:08.220 --> 00:26:11.000
  • COME TO NOTHING."
  • 00:26:11.030 --> 00:26:12.040
  • NUMBER TWO: HE SAYS, "LET THEM BIND THEMSELVES
  • 00:26:12.070 --> 00:26:15.140
  • TOGETHER IN A PRAYER GROUP AND PRAY FOR REVIVAL UNTIL
  • 00:26:15.170 --> 00:26:19.070
  • GOD OPENS THE HEAVENS AND COMES DOWN.
  • 00:26:19.100 --> 00:26:22.050
  • NUMBER THREE: LET THEM PUT THEMSELVES AT THE
  • 00:26:22.080 --> 00:26:25.090
  • DISPOSAL OF GOD FOR HIM TO USE AS HE SEES FIT IN
  • 00:26:25.120 --> 00:26:28.200
  • WINNING OTHERS TO CHRIST."
  • 00:26:28.230 --> 00:26:31.030
  • THEN HE SAYS, "THAT'S IT. THAT IS ALL.
  • 00:26:31.060 --> 00:26:34.130
  • IT IS SURE TO BRING A REVIVAL TO ANY CHURCH
  • 00:26:34.160 --> 00:26:36.220
  • OR ANY COMMUNITY.
  • 00:26:36.250 --> 00:26:37.290
  • I HAVE GIVEN THIS PRESCRIPTION AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:26:38.020 --> 00:26:40.050
  • IT HAS BEEN TAKEN BY MANY CHURCHES IN MANY
  • 00:26:40.080 --> 00:26:42.140
  • COMMUNITIES, AND IN NO INSTANCE HAS IT EVER FAILED.
  • 00:26:42.170 --> 00:26:46.060
  • IT CANNOT FAIL."
  • 00:26:46.090 --> 00:26:48.170
  • SO WE NEED A REVIVAL. LORD, SEND A REVIVAL.
  • 00:26:48.200 --> 00:26:51.170
  • WHY DON'T YOU JUST DO THE THINGS WE JUST TALKED ABOUT?
  • 00:26:51.200 --> 00:26:54.070
  • REMEMBER FROM WHERE YOU HAVE FALLEN, REPENT, DO
  • 00:26:54.100 --> 00:26:57.090
  • THE FIRST WORKS QUICKLY, AS I SAID EARLIER.
  • 00:26:57.120 --> 00:27:00.030
  • GET RIGHT WITH GOD. PRAY WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:27:00.060 --> 00:27:03.140
  • PRAY FOR REVIVAL TILL YOU SEE IT.
  • 00:27:03.170 --> 00:27:05.200
  • LET IT START IN YOUR HOME.
  • 00:27:05.230 --> 00:27:06.250
  • LET IT START IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:27:06.280 --> 00:27:08.010
  • IT STARTS WITH YOU.
  • 00:27:08.040 --> 00:27:09.110
  • THE JESUS REVOLUTION STARTS RIGHT HERE IN MY HEART.
  • 00:27:09.140 --> 00:27:13.180
  • [Phil Wickham: This is the Day] THIS IS THE DAY
  • 00:27:13.210 --> 00:27:14.110
  • WHEN THE LOST ARE FOUND.
  • 00:27:14.140 --> 00:27:16.270
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING.
  • 00:27:17.000 --> 00:27:20.280
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:27:21.010 --> 00:27:22.010
