  • SON.
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:33.190
  • THE BABY WAS BORN FINE, BUT
  • 00:03:33.190 --> 00:03:35.200
  • SHE WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN, JUST
  • 00:03:35.200 --> 00:03:37.280
  • BEFORE SHE DIED, SHE NAMED

  • AND BACK IN THOSE DAYS THE
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:53.060
  • NAMES THEY GAVE PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:03:53.060 --> 00:03:55.010
  • MUCH MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN

  • TODAY.
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:57.200
  • THOSE NAMES COULD LITERALLY
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:59.010
  • DETERMINE THE PERSON'S
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.160

  • LIVE A PAINFUL, SORROWFUL,
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:11.160
  • DEPRESSING LIFE.
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:12.170
  • AND SOMETIMES THE PEOPLE THAT

  • WERE IN PAIN, THEY NAMED YOU
  • 00:04:24.200 --> 00:04:26.150
  • LESS THAN, NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

  • THEY MAY NOT HAVE SAID IT,
  • 00:04:28.290 --> 00:04:30.070
  • BUT HOW THEY MADE YOU FEEL,
  • 00:04:30.070 --> 00:04:31.240
  • PUTTING YOU DOWN, NOT SHOWING
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.150
  • YOU LOVE AND AFFECTION.
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:35.090
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS WHAT GOD

  • THEY MAY NAME YOU SON OF
  • 00:04:40.200 --> 00:04:41.270
  • SORROW, SON OF PAIN, SON OF
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.190
  • DEFEAT.
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:44.140
  • GOD NAMES YOU SON OF VICTORY,
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:46.200
  • SON OF FAVOR, SON OF
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:48.090
  • BLESSING.
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:49.150
  • DON'T LET THE NEGATIVE THINGS
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:51.080
  • PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN OVER YOU,
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:53.050
  • HOW YOU WERE RAISED, WHAT YOU

  • CHANGE YOUR NAME.
  • 00:04:57.040 --> 00:04:58.010
  • A FEW MINUTES AFTER RACHEL
  • 00:04:58.010 --> 00:05:00.110
  • DIED, JACOB CAME RUNNING IN.
  • 00:05:00.110 --> 00:05:02.280
  • THE NURSES HANDED HIM THE

  • HIS NAME IS BENONI.
  • 00:05:06.060 --> 00:05:08.100
  • WHEN JACOB HEARD THAT,
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:10.020
  • SOMETHING ROSE UP ON
  • 00:05:10.020 --> 00:05:11.160
  • THE INSIDE.
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:12.190
  • HE SAID, "NO THAT IS NOT HIS
  • 00:05:12.190 --> 00:05:14.110

  • SOMEONE ELSE SAID, HE WILL
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:19.090
  • NOT BE CALLED SON OF SORROW.
  • 00:05:19.090 --> 00:05:21.140
  • HIS NAME IS BENJAMIN."
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:23.220
  • BENJAMIN MEANS SON OF
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:24.290
  • STRENGTH, SON OF POWER.
  • 00:05:24.290 --> 00:05:26.190
  • IN THAT ONE MOMENT, WITH THAT
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:29.100
  • ONE NAME CHANGE, HE WENT FROM
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:31.130
  • SON OF SORROW TO SON OF

  • STRENGTH.
  • 00:05:33.070 --> 00:05:34.190
  • BENJAMIN WENT ON TO BECOME A
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:36.090
  • GREAT LEADER.
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:37.170
  • OUT OF HIS GENES, HIS FAMILY
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:39.150
  • LINE, CAME THE KINGS OF
  • 00:05:39.150 --> 00:05:41.010
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:41.230
  • ONE KING AFTER ANOTHER.
  • 00:05:41.230 --> 00:05:44.020
  • GOD HAD A GREAT ASSIGNMENT
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:45.240
  • FOR BENJAMIN BUT HE KNEW IF
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:48.010
  • HE HAD GONE THROUGH LIFE
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:49.170
  • BEING CALLED SON OF SORROW
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.160
  • THAT WOULD'VE GOTTEN ON THE

  • INSIDE.
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:53.220
  • HE WOULD'VE SEEN HIMSELF AS

  • LIMITED AND DEFEATED.
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:57.050
  • SO GOD STEPPED UP AND SAID,
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:59.050
  • "NO HE WILL NOT BE THE SON OF
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:00.250
  • SORROW.
  • 00:06:00.250 --> 00:06:01.200
  • HE IS NOT THE SON OF DEFEAT.
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.130
  • THIS CHILD IS A SON OF
  • 00:06:03.130 --> 00:06:05.060
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:06.040
  • THIS CHILD HAS GREATNESS IN
  • 00:06:06.040 --> 00:06:07.220
  • HIM."
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:08.280
  • NOW MAYBE SOMEONE HAS TRIED
  • 00:06:08.280 --> 00:06:10.220
  • TO NAME YOU AVERAGE,
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:12.230
  • UNQUALIFIED, UNATTRACTIVE,
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:14.260
  • TOO MANY MISTAKES.
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:16.150
  • GOD IS SAYING TO YOU, WHAT HE
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:18.090
  • SAID TO BENJAMIN.
  • 00:06:18.090 --> 00:06:19.200
  • "I'M CHANGING YOUR NAME.
  • 00:06:19.200 --> 00:06:21.190
  • NO MORE SON OF SORROW, NO
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:23.200
  • MORE SON OF NOT GOOD ENOUGH,

  • NOW YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR PART
  • 00:06:32.020 --> 00:06:33.250
  • AND GET RID OF THE OLD NAMES.
  • 00:06:33.250 --> 00:06:36.220
  • THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE FOR YOU
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:38.120
  • TO LIVE AS THE SON OF SORROW,
  • 00:06:38.120 --> 00:06:40.270
  • WHEN GOD HAS CALLED YOU THE

  • GREATNESS.
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:44.200

  • YOUR NEW NAMES ARE BLESSED,

  • FORGIVEN, TALENTED, ONE OF A
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:03.110
  • WHEN GOD GAVE ABRAHAM AND
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:07.190
  • SARAH THE PROMISE THAT THEY
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:09.090
  • WERE GOING TO HAVE A BABY,
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:10.220
  • THEY WERE BOTH WAY TOO OLD.
  • 00:17:10.220 --> 00:17:12.270
  • IT LOOKED IMPOSSIBLE, BUT GOD
  • 00:17:12.270 --> 00:17:15.040
  • DID SOMETHING UNUSUAL.
  • 00:17:15.040 --> 00:17:16.220
  • HE DIDN'T JUST GIVE THEM THE
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:18.000
  • PROMISE, HE CHANGED THEIR

  • MANY NATIONS.
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:27.090
  • WHEN GOD CHANGED HIS NAME,
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:28.270
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE ONE CHILD.
  • 00:17:28.270 --> 00:17:30.250
  • YET EVERY TIME SOMEONE SAID,
  • 00:17:30.250 --> 00:17:32.150
  • "HELLO, ABRAHAM," THEY WERE
  • 00:17:32.150 --> 00:17:34.060
  • SAYING, "HELLO FATHER OF MANY
  • 00:17:34.060 --> 00:17:35.290
  • NATIONS."
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.080
  • THEY WERE SPEAKING FAITH INTO
  • 00:17:37.080 --> 00:17:38.210
  • HIS DESTINY.
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:40.070
  • WHAT YOU CONTINUALLY HEAR
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:42.040
  • STARTS TO GET DOWN ON THE

  • INSIDE.
  • 00:17:43.200 --> 00:17:45.030
  • THAT'S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:46.290
  • TO HAVE THE RIGHT NAMES.
  • 00:17:46.290 --> 00:17:48.090
  • I AM BLESSED.
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:49.190
  • I AM TALENTED.

  • WELL KEEP CALLING
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:55.040
  • THAT'S WHAT ALLOWS IT TO
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:57.290
  • HAPPEN.
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:17:59.020
  • I DON'T FEEL BLESSED.
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:00.060
  • I'M IN DEBT.
  • 00:18:00.060 --> 00:18:01.070
  • I'M STRUGGLING.
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:02.040
  • I'VE GOT THESE BILLS.
  • 00:18:02.040 --> 00:18:03.200
  • YOU'RE RIGHT WHERE ABRAHAM
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:04.240
  • WAS.
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:05.180
  • HE COULD'VE SAID, WE DON'T
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:06.170
  • HAVE ANY CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:07.280
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:18:07.280 --> 00:18:08.180
  • A BABY.
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:09.140
  • GOD, MY WIFE HAS GONE THROUGH
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:10.240
  • THE CHANGE OF LIFE.
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:12.060
  • THAT'S WHY GOD CHANGED HIS
  • 00:18:12.060 --> 00:18:13.210
  • NAME, SO HE WOULD HEAR IT
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:15.070
  • AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:16.170
  • YOU'RE THE FATHER OF MANY
  • 00:18:16.170 --> 00:18:17.290
  • NATIONS.
  • 00:18:17.290 --> 00:18:19.030
  • YOU'RE TEMPTED TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:18:21.030 --> 00:18:22.050
  • WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE, HOW IT'S
  • 00:18:22.050 --> 00:18:23.160
  • NOT GOING TO IMPROVE, THAT'S
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:25.150
  • WHY YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:26.260
  • GOD IS CHANGING YOUR NAME
  • 00:18:26.260 --> 00:18:29.010
  • FROM LACK, FROM STRUGGLE,
  • 00:18:29.010 --> 00:18:30.290
  • FROM NOT ENOUGH, TO BLESSED,
  • 00:18:30.290 --> 00:18:33.060
  • TO PROSPEROUS, TO MORE THAN
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:34.260
  • ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:34.260 --> 00:18:35.260
  • NOW YOU HAVE TO KEEP CALLING
  • 00:18:35.260 --> 00:18:37.130
  • YOURSELF WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT

  • ABRAHAM WAITED FOR YEARS.
  • 00:18:42.100 --> 00:18:44.160
  • BUT EVERY TIME YOU CALL
  • 00:18:44.160 --> 00:18:45.270
  • YOURSELF WHAT GOD NAMED YOU,
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:48.030
  • IT'S GETTING DEEPER ON THE

  • INSIDE.
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:50.140
  • IT'S CHANGING YOUR SELF
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:51.210

  • THOUGHT, "WE'RE NEVER GOING
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:57.250
  • TO HAVE A BABY."
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:18:59.050
  • ABOUT THAT TIME SOMEONE WOULD
  • 00:18:59.050 --> 00:19:00.160
  • WALK UP AND CALL HIS NAME.
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:02.060
