  • (JOHN LAUGHING)
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:10:57.250
  • NOW IT HAPPENED AS HE WENT TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:59.200
  • THAT HE PASSED THROUGH THE MIDST OF SAMARIA AND GALILEE.
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:04.180
  • THEN AS HE ENTERED A CERTAIN VILLAGE,
  • 00:11:04.210 --> 00:11:06.240
  • THERE MET HIM 10 MEN WHO WERE LEPERS, WHO STOOD AFAR OFF.
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:12.150
  • AND THEY LIFTED UP THEIR VOICES AND SAID,
  • 00:11:12.180 --> 00:11:14.050
  • "JESUS, MASTER, HAVE MERCY ON US!"
  • 00:11:14.080 --> 00:11:19.110
  • SO WHEN HE SAW THEM, HE SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:11:19.140 --> 00:11:23.130
  • "GO, SHOW YOURSELVES TO THE PRIESTS.
  • 00:11:23.160 --> 00:11:26.240
  • AND SO IT WAS THAT AS THEY WENT, THEY WERE CLEANSED.
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:30.260
  • AND ONE OF THEM, WHEN HE SAW THAT HE WAS HEALED RETURNED,
  • 00:11:30.290 --> 00:11:34.020
  • AND ONE OF THEM, WHEN HE SAW THAT HE WAS HEALED, RETURNED.
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:40.220
  • AND WITH A LOUD VOICE, GLORIFIED GOD AND FELL DOWN
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:45.060
  • ON HIS FACE AT HIS FEET, GIVING HIM THANKS.
  • 00:11:45.090 --> 00:11:48.210
  • AND HE WAS A SAMARITAN.
  • 00:11:48.240 --> 00:11:51.020
  • SO JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID, "WERE THERE NOT 10 CLEANSED?"
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:54.070
  • "BUT WHERE ARE THE NINE?"
  • 00:11:54.100 --> 00:11:55.170
  • "WERE THERE NOT ANY FOUND WHO RETURNED
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:57.180
  • "TO GIVE GLORY TO GOD EXCEPT THIS FOREIGNER?"
  • 00:11:57.210 --> 00:12:01.200
  • AND HE SAID TO HIM, "ARISE, GO YOUR WAY."
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:04.220
  • "YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL."

  • THE POWER OF THANK YOU.
  • 00:13:14.020 --> 00:13:16.230
  • NOW, LOT OF TIMES WHEN YOU READ BIBLICAL STORIES,
  • 00:13:16.260 --> 00:13:19.190
  • IT'S HARD TO PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:22.250
  • BECAUSE WE'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE GEOGRAPHY,
  • 00:13:22.280 --> 00:13:26.220
  • WE'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH, YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE TERMINOLOGY,
  • 00:13:26.250 --> 00:13:29.260
  • AND ALL THAT, BUT LET ME TELL YOU, THESE MEN HAD LEPROSY.
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:35.050
  • NOW, IF THERE'S A DISEASE YOU DON'T WANT,
  • 00:13:35.080 --> 00:13:38.000
  • 2.000 YEARS AGO IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THIS IS THE ONE.
  • 00:13:38.030 --> 00:13:42.140
  • THIS IS THE ONE YOU DON'T WANT.
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:44.150
  • STARTS OUT AS A RASH AND IT GETS INCREASINGLY WORSE.
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:48.060
  • I JUST LEARNED FROM DR. PAUL, IT'S A NERVE DISEASE.
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:52.090
  • BUT THEY DIDN'T KNOW THAT BACK THEN,
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:53.140
  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE DR. PAUL, WE GOT DR. PAUL.
  • 00:13:53.170 --> 00:13:55.200
  • ALL THEY KNEW IS, SOMETHIN' WRONG WITH MY HAND
  • 00:13:55.230 --> 00:13:59.020
  • AND IT'S GETTIN' BIGGER.
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:00.130
  • AND IT WASN'T A MOSQUITO BITE,
  • 00:14:00.160 --> 00:14:01.220
  • 'CAUSE I'M SICK OF THESE MOSQUITOES,
  • 00:14:01.250 --> 00:14:02.260
  • THESE SOUTH SIDE JERUSALEM MOSQUITOES
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:04.280
  • KEEP BITIN' ME AND I DON'T HAVE NO OFF!,
  • 00:14:05.010 --> 00:14:08.030
  • 'CAUSE THEY AIN'T EVEN MADE IT YET,

  • AND THERE AIN'T NO NEOSPORIN, NOTHIN'.
  • 00:14:10.200 --> 00:14:12.110
  • AND SO, IT STARTS AS A SMALL THING
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:16.000
  • THAT GETS PROGRESSIVELY BIGGER,
  • 00:14:16.030 --> 00:14:17.180
  • AND ISN'T THAT HOW THE ENEMY DOES?
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:21.060
  • IT'S A SMALL THING.
  • 00:14:21.090 --> 00:14:23.050
  • YOU TRY TO MANAGE SIN, YOU EVER TRIED TO MANAGE YOUR SIN?
  • 00:14:23.080 --> 00:14:27.170
  • I'MA JUST SIN A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:14:27.200 --> 00:14:29.140
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHING)
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:31.240
  • BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, THAT THING'S BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION,
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:34.160
  • GOIN' OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:36.250
  • NOTE TO YOU, YOU CANNOT MANAGE SIN.
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:39.270
  • THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS TO DEMOLISH SIN.
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:43.200
  • YOU CAN'T MANAGE IT, IT'S UNMANAGEABLE,
  • 00:14:43.230 --> 00:14:46.000
  • IT GETS OUT OF CONTROL, IT GETS OUT OF HAND.
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:48.050
  • IT STARTS SMALL, AND UNLESS YOU UPROOT THAT THING
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:50.260
  • AND GET IT OUT OF THERE, IT WILL CORRUPT AND INFECT.
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:53.090
  • THE BIBLE SAYS SIN FULL GROWN GIVES BIRTH TO DEATH.
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:56.150
  • THAT MEANS WHEN THAT THING IS GROWN UP, IT'S GON' KILL YOU.
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:59.080
  • CATCH IT IN ITS INFANT STAGES
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:01.160
  • SO THAT IT DOES NOT DESTROY YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:05.140
  • LEPROSY IS THE ONE DISEASE YOU DON'T WANT.
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:09.260
  • 'CAUSE LEPROSY IS LIKE THAT THRILLER VIDEO.
  • 00:15:09.290 --> 00:15:12.100
  • WHEN THOSE ZOMBIES WERE COMIN' OUT OF THE GROUND,
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:15.040
  • STUFF WAS FALLIN' OFF, LEPROSY IS A DISEASE
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:18.170
  • THAT EATS AWAY AT YOUR BODY.
  • 00:15:18.200 --> 00:15:22.280

  • I AIN'T LYIN'.
  • 00:15:33.090 --> 00:15:34.130
  • I'M TELLIN' YOU, LEPROSY IS NO JOKE.
  • 00:15:34.160 --> 00:15:37.060
  • YOU COULD BE SITTIN' THERE LIKE, ACHOO!

  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHING)
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:53.010
  • LEPROSY IS THE ONE YOU DON'T WANT.
  • 00:15:53.040 --> 00:15:57.100
  • NOT ONLY WAS IT A DISEASE THAT ATE AWAY AT YOUR BODY,
  • 00:15:57.130 --> 00:16:03.210
  • IT ATE AWAY AT YOUR SOUL BECAUSE IT WAS BELIEVED
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:08.060
  • THAT YOU COULD ONLY GET LEPROSY IF YOU WERE CURSED.
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:12.100
  • AND SO YOU HAD TO ANNOUNCE YOURSELF,
  • 00:16:12.130 --> 00:16:16.070
  • IF YOU WERE GOING TO MOVE, OR LEAVE,
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:18.190
  • OR BE IN A PUBLIC PLACE,
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:20.100
  • IF THERE WAS ANYBODY WHO DIDN'T HAVE IT,
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:22.070
  • YOU HAD TO ANNOUNCE SO THEY WOULDN'T GET TOO CLOSE.
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:24.250
  • UNCLEAN!
  • 00:16:24.280 --> 00:16:27.010
  • HEY, DON'T COME, I'M DIRTY, I'M UNCLEAN!
  • 00:16:27.040 --> 00:16:29.180
  • YOU SEE, I GOT LEPROSY, YOU KNOW, I'M JUST SAYIN'.
  • 00:16:29.210 --> 00:16:33.080
  • YOU HAD TO TELL PEOPLE THAT YOU WERE UNWORTHY
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:37.200
  • OF AFFECTION, UNWORTHY OF TOUCH.
  • 00:16:37.230 --> 00:16:41.210
  • AND HOW MANY TIMES HAS THE CHURCH TAKEN IT UPON THEMSELVES
  • 00:16:41.240 --> 00:16:46.000
  • TO DECIDE WHO AND WHAT IS UNWORTHY OF GOD'S LOVE?
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:49.280
  • UNWORTHY OF GOD'S AFFECTION?
  • 00:16:50.010 --> 00:16:51.260
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT I'M A PART OF A CHURCH
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:54.020
  • THAT DOESN'T LOOK AT THE FIFTH WARD AND CRY, UNCLEAN,
  • 00:16:54.050 --> 00:16:57.020
  • BUT SAYS, I'M GOIN' RIGHT DOWN THERE IN THE MIDST
  • 00:16:57.050 --> 00:16:59.200
  • OF WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE CALLS THE 'HOOD,
  • 00:16:59.230 --> 00:17:01.220
  • AND I'MA GIVE EVERYBODY FOOD AND I'MA PRAY
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:04.130
  • AND I'M ASK THEM, DO YOU WANNA GET SAVED?
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:06.280
  • AND 25 OF 'EM SAID YES, WHICH MEANS 25 WENT FROM UNSAVED
