  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:00.100 --> 00:00:03.070
  • - THE SCARS YOU SHARE BECOME LIGHTHOUSES
  • 00:00:46.050 --> 00:00:48.270
  • FOR OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE HEADED
  • 00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:51.090
  • TO THE SAME ROCKS YOU HIT.
  • 00:00:51.120 --> 00:00:53.030
  • WHEN THE DEVIL WHISPERS INTO YOUR EAR,
  • 00:00:56.230 --> 00:00:58.220
  • "YOU CAN'T SURVIVE THIS STORM."
  • 00:00:58.250 --> 00:01:00.260
  • JUST WHISPER BACK, "I AM THE STORM."
  • 00:01:00.290 --> 00:01:03.130
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:03.160 --> 00:01:06.000
  • WITH GOD ON YOUR SIDE, YOU CAN ENDURE EUROCLYDON.
  • 00:01:06.030 --> 00:01:09.110
  • YOU CAN SURVIVE THE STORM.
  • 00:01:09.140 --> 00:01:11.090
  • YOU CAN THOLE THE THUNDERHEAD, AND TREAD UPON THE TEMPEST.
  • 00:01:11.120 --> 00:01:14.270
  • YOU CAN BRAVE THE WAVE BECAUSE HE'S CALLED YOU
  • 00:01:15.000 --> 00:01:17.120
  • TO BE A STORM STILLER, A WAVE WALKER, A GIANT KILLER,
  • 00:01:17.150 --> 00:01:21.260
  • AND THE SUN STOPPER FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:24.250
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:24.280 --> 00:01:29.210
  • JUST BECAUSE YOUR STORM IS PRESENT
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:31.150
  • DOES NOT MEAN YOUR SAVIOR IS ABSENT,
  • 00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:33.230
  • AND THE STORM CANNOT TAKE YOU WHERE GOD CANNOT KEEP YOU.
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:37.080
  • BECAUSE WHILE THE WIND AND THE WAVES COULD NOT WAKE JESUS,
  • 00:01:37.110 --> 00:01:40.150
  • THE CRY OF HUMAN NEED COULD.
  • 00:01:40.180 --> 00:01:42.220
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:46.270
  • WHEN THE LORD IS WITH YOU IN YOUR BOAT,
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:49.000
  • WAVES ARE FOR WALKING ON, AND BUMPS IN THE ROAD
  • 00:01:49.030 --> 00:01:52.020
  • ARE THERE TO TAKE YOU HIGHER,
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:53.250
  • BECAUSE HE WILL LEAD YOU TO YOUR SAFE HAVEN.
  • 00:01:53.280 --> 00:01:56.290
  • SO IF THE GREAT PILOT IS BEHIND THE WHEEL,
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:02:00.290
  • WHY SHOULD THE CAPTAIN PACE THE DECK?
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:03.200
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:07.220
  • - THERE ARE 150 SUBATOMIC PARTICLES, 150.
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:08.110
  • DO YOU REALIZE WE DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:09.160
  • DISCOVER THE ATOM UNTIL THE 1800s?
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:12.040
  • AND THEN IN THE 1800s, WE FOUND OUT
  • 00:03:13.040 --> 00:03:14.210
  • EVERYTHING IS MADE UP OF ATOMS.
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.000
  • BUT AN ATOM IS SO SMALL THAT IT IS IN SIZE TO A GOLF BALL,
  • 00:03:16.030 --> 00:03:19.010
  • WHAT A GOLF BALL IN SIZE
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:20.260
  • TO THE WORLD, TO THE PLANET, EARTH.
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:23.080
  • IT'S JUST A TINY THING.
  • 00:03:23.110 --> 00:03:24.140
  • AND SINCE THEN, THROUGH OUR MICROSCOPES,
  • 00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:26.060
  • WE'VE DISCOVERED 150 MORE SUBATOMIC PARTICLES.
  • 00:03:26.090 --> 00:03:28.280
  • AND THESE PARTICLES ARE JUST FILTHY.
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:31.010
  • THIS IS BEN COURSON AND YOU'RE TUNED IN TO HOPE GENERATION.
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:36.090
  • TAKING PART TWO OF AN EPISODE ENTITLED,
  • 00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:39.030
  • "JOYFUL CONFIDENT WELCOME."
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:42.060
  • YOU ARE NOT SWIRLING PROTONS, YOU ARE A PRONOUN.
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:45.160
  • YOU ARE NOT A CARBON FOOTPRINT,
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.040
  • YOU ARE A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:50.220
  • YOU WERE MEANT TO LIVE WITH WONDER, TO LIVE WITH JOY,
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:53.280
  • TO WELCOME ALL THE MIRACLES GOD
  • 00:03:54.010 --> 00:03:55.240
  • WANTS TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:57.250
  • ALBERT EINSTEIN ONCE SAID, "EITHER YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:03:57.280 --> 00:04:00.140
  • "LIFE BELIEVING EVERYTHING IS A MIRACLE,
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:03.050
  • "OR NOTHING IS A MIRACLE."
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:04.240
  • AND WE KNOW THAT THIS WHOLE THING
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:06.170
  • IS TOO MAGICAL TO NOT BELIEVE.
  • 00:04:06.200 --> 00:04:08.230
  • WE PASSED THROUGH THE WARDROBE, LIVING IN MIDDLE-EARTH.
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:11.270
  • THIS WHOLE THING IT TOO MIRACULOUS TO DENY
  • 00:04:12.000 --> 00:04:14.120
  • THAT CREATION TESTIFIES OF A CREATOR.
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:17.040
  • SO, LET'S BE FILLED WITH CHILD-LIKE AWE AND JOY,
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:21.090
  • AS WE ABSORB AND ENJOY THIS TEACHING,
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:24.030
  • "JOYFUL CONFIDENT WELCOME."
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:26.110
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:29.080
  • YOU ARE NOT A CARBON FOOTPRINT, YOU'RE A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:33.000
  • YOU ARE NOT SWIRLING PARTICLES,
  • 00:04:33.030 --> 00:04:34.260
  • YOU ARE A FORCED TO BE RECKONED WITH.
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:37.040
  • YOU ARE NOT MERELY A BODY WITH A SOUL,
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:39.190
  • YOU'RE A SOUL THAT JUST SO HAPPENS TO HAVE A BODY.
  • 00:04:39.220 --> 00:04:42.000
  • YOU'RE A POWERHOUSE, YOU'RE A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:45.150
  • AND IT'S TIME WE GO OUT THERE AND CHANGE THIS ROCK.
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:48.280
  • [CHUCKLES] WE ARE SEEING A MOVEMENT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:04:49.010 --> 00:04:51.270
  • IT'S UNLIKE ANYTHING I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:54.100
  • I AM SEEING SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:54.130 --> 00:04:56.230
  • NOT JUST HAVING FAITH IN GOD, AT THIS POINT,
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:59.050
  • BUT THEY'RE ACTUALLY LIKE SELLING OUT FOR HIM.
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:01.290
  • THEY'RE BECOMING SO--
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.000
  • EVERYWHERE I GO, I'M SEEING THIS.
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:04.200
  • NOT ONLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA, BUT EVEN EVERYWHERE I TRAVEL.
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:07.120
  • MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE LIKE,
  • 00:05:07.150 --> 00:05:08.220
  • "I AM TURNING ON TO THIS THING."
  • 00:05:08.250 --> 00:05:11.210
  • BECAUSE ENTHUSIASM ISN'T SOMETHING THAT'S TAUGHT,
  • 00:05:11.240 --> 00:05:14.010
  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S CAUGHT.
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:15.100
  • AND WHEN YOU'RE EVER AROUND SOMEBODY WHO'S GOT THE FIRE,
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:19.120
  • SOMEBODY WHO'S GOT THE FIRE, THAT FIRE DOESN'T BURN YOU,
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:22.110
  • IT JUST BURNS WHAT YOU ARE NOT.
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:23.280
  • BECAUSE YOU ARE AN IMAGE OF THE CONSUMING FIRE,
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:26.070
  • WHICH IS GOD.
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:27.080
  • AND WHEN YOU CATCH THAT FIRE, YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:05:27.110 --> 00:05:28.230
  • "OKAY, I WANT THIS, I'M IN, LET'S DO THIS THING."
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:31.290
  • AND ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY, REALLY,
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:33.240
  • WE'RE SEEING YOUNG PEOPLE WAKING UP TO GOD OF HOPE.
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:37.180
  • THAT LIFE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT,
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:39.010
  • IT JUST HAS TO BE LIVED.
  • 00:05:39.040 --> 00:05:40.070
  • JESUS SAID, "I'VE COME THAT YE MIGHT LIVE.
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:42.170
  • "THAT YE MIGHT LIVE ETERNALLY, ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:44.220
  • "MORE AND BETTER LIFE THAN YOU EVER DREAMED OF,"
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:46.220
  • AS JOHN 10:10 SAYS.
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:48.210
  • AND WE'RE SEEING MORE YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:49.260
  • GETTING PASSIONATE ABOUT THE LORD,
  • 00:05:49.290 --> 00:05:51.060
  • GETTING ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE LORD,
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:52.240
  • NOT BECAUSE OF RELIGION. IT'S ISN'T CUTTING IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:52.270 --> 00:05:56.010
  • IT'S BECAUSE OF A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE GOD OF HOPE.
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:06:00.020
  • AND THAT'S WHAT JESUS WAS ABOUT.
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:01.230
  • HE PITTED HIMSELF AGAINST THE ASSEMBLED
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:06.150
  • MIGHT OF JEWISH ORTHODOXY.
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.120
  • HE EVEN SPLIT THEIR TEMPLE VEIL
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:10.110
  • BECAUSE THE JEWS HAD DONE WHAT ALL RELIGION DOES,
  • 00:06:10.140 --> 00:06:13.080
  • THEY HAD BUILT A VEIL THAT SEPARATED GOD FROM MAN.
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:15.280
  • AND THE ONLY PERSON WHO COULD GO
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.150
  • INTO GOD'S PRESENCE WAS THE PASTOR, WAS THE PRIEST.
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:20.180
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THE ISRAELITES WANTED.
  • 00:06:20.210 --> 00:06:22.160
  • ON MOUNT SINAI, THEY SAID, "MOSES, YOU TALK TO US.
  • 00:06:22.190 --> 00:06:25.100
  • "WE DON'T WANNA HEAR FROM GOD OURSELVES.
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:27.180
  • "WE WANT YOU TO TALK TO US."
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:28.220
  • AND GOD'S LIKE, "I'D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU."
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.260
  • BUT THEY'RE LIKE, "NO, NO, NO, WE DON'T WANNA HEAR GOD.
  • 00:06:30.290 --> 00:06:33.030
  • "WE WANNA HEAR MOSES TELL US ABOUT GOD."
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:35.140
  • AND THE SAME THING HAPPENS TODAY.
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:37.210
  • WE PUT THIS VEIL HERE AND WE SAY,
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:39.130
  • "WE WANT A PASTOR TO TELL ME ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:06:39.160 --> 00:06:41.120
  • "WE WANT A PRIEST TO TELL ME ABOUT GOD."
  • 00:06:41.150 --> 00:06:43.180
  • AND JESUS SAYS, "WAIT, I AM THE WAY.
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:45.190
  • "I AM THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST.
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:47.020
  • "YOU CAN COME BOLDLY TO THRONE OF GRACE
  • 00:06:47.050 --> 00:06:49.150
  • "TO OBTAIN MERCY AND HELP IN TIME OF NEED,
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:52.240
  • "EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU, FROM THE YOUNGEST,
  • 00:06:52.270 --> 00:06:55.020
  • "TO THE OLDEST, NO MATTER WHAT YOUR PAST IS,
  • 00:06:55.050 --> 00:06:57.150
  • "NO MATTER WHAT WORRIES YOU FOR THE FUTURE,
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:59.270
  • "NO MATTER WHAT SINS YOU'VE COMMITTED IN THE PAST,
  • 00:07:00.020 --> 00:07:02.080
  • "EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.
  • 00:07:02.110 --> 00:07:03.220
  • "YOU HAVE FAITH IN THE LORD,
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:05.040
  • "YOU CAN COME BOLDLY TO THE THRONE OF GRACE,
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:08.000
  • "AND TALK TO THE CREATOR OF NEUTRONS, STARS,
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:10.050
  • "AND TALK TO THE CREATOR WHO MADE FLAMINGOS,
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:12.180
  • "WHICH CAN ONLY EAT WHEN THEIR HEADS ARE UPSIDE DOWN,
  • 00:07:12.210 --> 00:07:14.230
  • "AND TALK TO THE CREATOR OF ALBATROSS BIRDS,
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:17.010
  • "WHO FLY 25 MILES PER HOUR WHILE SLEEPING,
  • 00:07:17.040 --> 00:07:19.250
  • "AND TALK TO THE CREATOR OF OSTRICHES,
  • 00:07:19.280 --> 00:07:21.230
  • "WHICH ARE THE TALLEST BIRDS ON PLANET EARTH,
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:23.180
  • "AND SOMETIMES STEP ON THEIR OWN EGGS
  • 00:07:23.210 --> 00:07:24.280
  • "'CAUSE THEY'RE REALLY CLUMSY, "AND GOD HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR.
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:27.240
  • "YOU CAN TALK TO THE GOD WHO CREATED IN-N-OUT,
  • 00:07:27.270 --> 00:07:31.040
  • "WHICH TASTES LIKE LOVE WITHOUT
  • 00:07:31.070 --> 00:07:32.250
  • "THE FEAR OF LOVE'S DISSOLUTION."
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:34.270
  • [AUDIENCE LAUGHS]
  • 00:07:35.000 --> 00:07:36.170
  • YOU HAVE ACCESS AND YOU'RE A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:40.210
  • THE BIBLE DOESN'T EMPHASIZE YOU AS A WOMAN OF GOD.
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:43.080
  • THAT'S WHAT WE CALL PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:44.180
  • "OH, SHE'S A WOMAN OF GOD, SHE'S A PRAYER WARRIOR."
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:46.270
  • WHERE DO YOU SEE THAT PHRASE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT?
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:49.200
  • IT'S NOT, "YOU'RE A MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:07:49.230 --> 00:07:50.290
  • "OH, HE'S A MAN OF GOD, YOU'RE A MAN OF THE CLOTH.
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:54.240
  • "YOU'RE A MAN OF GOD, AREN'T YOU?
  • 00:07:54.270 --> 00:07:55.270
  • "YOU DON'T REALLY DRESS LIKE ONE,
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:57.000
  • "LOOK LIKE ONE, TALK LIKE ONE,
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:58.030
  • "OR ACT LIKE ONE, BUT TECHNICALLY."
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:07:59.220
  • I GOT A DM TODAY, "DO YOU HAVE A LICENSE TO PREACH?"
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:03.140
  • I'M LIKE, "I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION."
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:05.220
  • DO I HAVE A LICENSE TO PREACH?
  • 00:08:05.250 --> 00:08:08.050
  • THAT'S LIKE HOW WE THINK TODAY.
  • 00:08:08.080 --> 00:08:10.190
  • OH, YOU NEED TO BE ORDAINED, YOU NEED TO HAVE A LICENSE.
  • 00:08:10.220 --> 00:08:13.190
  • WHATEVER, BUT THAT'S OLD COVENANT STUFF,
  • 00:08:13.220 --> 00:08:16.230
  • THAT'S RELIGIOSITY, THAT'S CHURCHIANITY.
  • 00:08:16.260 --> 00:08:18.280
  • THE TRUTH IS, THE BIBLE DOESN'T CALL YOU, "A MAN OF GOD."
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:22.220
  • THE BIBLE DOESN'T CALL YOU, "A WOMAN OF GOD."
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:24.130
  • THE BIBLE CALLS YOU, "A CHILD OF GOD."
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:27.160
  • AND IF YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD,
  • 00:08:27.190 --> 00:08:29.120
  • YOU ARE AN HEIR OF GOD, AND A JOINT HEIR WITH CHRIST.
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:32.110
  • AND WHENEVER YOU FELLOWSHIP WITH HIS SUFFERINGS,
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:34.130
  • YOU'RE ALSO GONNA SHARE IN HIS GLORY.
  • 00:08:34.160 --> 00:08:35.280
  • SO, IT'S ALL GREAT NEWS! WE
  • 00:08:36.010 --> 00:08:39.090
  • SHOULD BE THE MOST ENTHUSIASTIC PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!
  • 00:08:39.120 --> 00:08:43.290
  • IF WE'RE NOT GONNA BE ENTHUSIASTIC,
  • 00:08:44.020 --> 00:08:45.150
  • WHY ARE WE GETTING UP IN THE MORNING?
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:47.250
  • IF WE'RE NOT GONNA BE PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS LIFE

  • WHO MADE US WITH A TELEOLOGIC DESIGN AND PURPOSE,
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:08:59.050
  • THEN WHY ARE WE GETTING UP?
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:00.260
  • IS IT TO WORK 40 HOURS A WEEK FOR 40 YEARS,
  • 00:09:00.290 --> 00:09:03.190
  • TO RETIRE ON 40% OF OUR INCOME?
  • 00:09:03.220 --> 00:09:05.140

  • AND THIS IS WHAT HE SAID, QUOTING ISAIAH 61,
  • 00:09:37.280 --> 00:09:40.010
  • "THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAS ANOINTED ME
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:43.000

  • AND AFTER HE SAID THAT, HE SAID--
  • 00:09:59.150 --> 00:10:01.160
  • MANY PEOPLE IN ELIJAH AND ELISHA'S TIME,

  • 00:10:09.090 --> 00:10:11.160
  • THEY HEALED NAAMAN THE SYRIAN. THEY HEALED A PHOENICIAN WOMAN.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:15.060

  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:18.090
  • WHO WERE NOT PART OF THE JEWISH RACE.

  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:49.280
  • NOBODY CAN CHAIN YOU WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.
  • 00:22:50.010 --> 00:22:52.020
  • THERE ARE THESE ELEPHANTS IN AFRICA
  • 00:22:52.050 --> 00:22:54.110
  • THAT WHEN THEY'RE LITTLE BABY ELEPHANTS,
  • 00:22:54.140 --> 00:22:56.290
  • THEY'LL BE TIED TO A LITTLE PEG, A LITTLE TENT PEG,
  • 00:22:57.020 --> 00:23:00.260
  • AND THEY CAN'T GO ANYWHERE
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:01.230
  • 'CAUSE THEY'RE JUST LITTLE CHUBBY,
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:03.060
  • LITTLE ELEPHANTS THAT CAN'T DO ANYTHING.
  • 00:23:03.090 --> 00:23:05.210
  • SO, THEY'RE LIKE, "OH, SHOOT, I'M CHAINED TO THIS PEG."
  • 00:23:05.240 --> 00:23:09.030
  • AND THE FUNNY THING IS, THESE CIRCUS ELEPHANTS,
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:12.160
  • THEY GROW OLDER AND OLDER AND OLDER, AND THEY GET SO BIG.
  • 00:23:12.190 --> 00:23:15.140
  • THEY'RE LIKE THE BEHEMOTH THAT JOB SPEAKS OF.
  • 00:23:15.170 --> 00:23:18.170
  • THAT'S WHAT SOME SCHOLARS THINK
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:19.250
  • JOB WAS TALKING ABOUT, THE ELEPHANT.
  • 00:23:19.280 --> 00:23:21.260
  • THE BEHEMOTH, AND THEY BECOME THESE HUGE CREATURES,
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:25.150
  • AND YOU CAN POKE THEM WITH A STICK,
  • 00:23:25.180 --> 00:23:27.050
  • YOU CAN UPSET THEM, AND THEN RUN AWAY.
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:29.060
  • AND THEY COULD RUN AFTER YOU,
  • 00:23:29.090 --> 00:23:31.180
  • BUT WHEN THE CHAIN PULLS BACK AT THEM,
  • 00:23:31.210 --> 00:23:34.040
  • THEY CAN'T GO ANYWHERE.
  • 00:23:34.070 --> 00:23:35.150
  • AND YOU LOOK AT WHAT'S HOLDING THE ELEPHANT BACK,
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:38.000
  • AND IT'S THE SAME TENT PEG
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:40.000
  • THAT THEY'VE BEEN CHAINED TO ALL THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:23:40.030 --> 00:23:42.090
  • SO, THEY'VE GROWN UP BELIEVING,
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:44.080
  • "I CAN'T GO BEYOND THIS POINT.
  • 00:23:44.110 --> 00:23:46.160
  • "I AM CHAINED TO A PEG, AND THIS PEG,
  • 00:23:46.190 --> 00:23:48.200
  • "EVER SINCE I WAS A BABY, KEPT ME BACK."
  • 00:23:48.230 --> 00:23:50.290
  • BUT LITTLE DOES IT KNOW, IT HAS POWERS INSIDE IT TO RIP
  • 00:23:51.020 --> 00:23:53.170
  • THAT THING OUT OF THE GROUND, AND EXTIRPATE IT.
  • 00:23:53.200 --> 00:23:58.140
  • THAT'S HOW YOU, AND LOT OF YOU, YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:23:58.170 --> 00:24:00.090
  • "OH, I'M CHAINED TO FEAR,
  • 00:24:00.120 --> 00:24:01.150
  • "I CAN'T ATTEMPT GREAT THINGS FOR GOD,
  • 00:24:01.180 --> 00:24:03.030
  • "I CAN'T FOLLOW MY DREAMS."
  • 00:24:03.060 --> 00:24:04.150
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE CHAINED TO NOTHING.
  • 00:24:04.180 --> 00:24:06.150
  • IT'S FEAR, IT'S A TENT PEG, IT HAS NO POWER OVER YOU.
  • 00:24:06.180 --> 00:24:09.110
  • YOU DON'T HAVE THE SPIRIT OF FEAR.
  • 00:24:09.140 --> 00:24:10.230
  • LIVE UP TO WHO YOU ALREADY ARE.
  • 00:24:10.260 --> 00:24:12.260
  • WHETHER YOU BELIEVE, IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN,
  • 00:24:13.240 --> 00:24:17.050
  • OR IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN'T,
  • 00:24:17.080 --> 00:24:18.250
  • HENRY FORD SAID, "YOU'RE RIGHT EITHER WAY."
  • 00:24:18.280 --> 00:24:21.000
  • SO, IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN'T GO
  • 00:24:21.030 --> 00:24:22.100
  • BEYOND YOUR LITTLE BOUNDARIES OF RELIGION,
  • 00:24:22.130 --> 00:24:24.010
  • OR ATHEISM, OR WHATEVER IT IS, AND YOU'RE JUST STUCK HERE,
  • 00:24:24.040 --> 00:24:26.230
  • AND YOU CAN'T USE YOUR SUPERPOWERS, YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:24:26.260 --> 00:24:29.140
  • BUT IF YOU'LL BELIEVE WHAT PAUL SAYS,
  • 00:24:29.170 --> 00:24:31.100
  • ABUNDANTLY, THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS BEEN GIVEN UNTO YOU,
  • 00:24:31.130 --> 00:24:34.030
  • YOU HAVE THE HOPE AS AN HEIR OF ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:24:34.060 --> 00:24:36.180
  • YOU'RE GONNA GO OUT THERE, AND RIP THAT THING TO SHREDS,
  • 00:24:36.210 --> 00:24:39.180
  • AND YOU'RE GONNA RUN FREE.
  • 00:24:39.210 --> 00:24:41.060
  • I WANT YOU TO RUN FREE, YOU ARE NO LONGER A SLAVE TO FEAR.
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:46.020

  • WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER.
  • 00:25:03.130 --> 00:25:06.220
  • WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE SPIRIT OF BONDAGE,
  • 00:25:06.250 --> 00:25:08.290
  • AGAIN TO FEAR, BUT THE SPIRIT OF ADOPTION.
  • 00:25:09.020 --> 00:25:11.190
  • BY WHOM WE CRY, "ABBA FATHER."
  • 00:25:11.220 --> 00:25:13.080
  • WE HAVE THIS POWER INSIDE OF US, UNLEASH IT.
  • 00:25:13.110 --> 00:25:16.160
  • UNLEASH IT, UNLEASH IT.
  • 00:25:16.190 --> 00:25:18.140
