  • THEY ARE NOT A MISTAKE.
  • 00:00:41.040 --> 00:00:42.230
  • THEY ARE NOT DRAMA.
  • 00:00:42.250 --> 00:00:45.140
  • YOU LOOK LIKE YOUR DADDY.
  • 00:00:45.160 --> 00:00:46.190

  • THEY'RE HERE NOW. LOVE THEM. FIGHT FOR THEM.
  • 00:00:57.080 --> 00:01:01.220
  • MAYBE THE REASON WHY THEY LOOK LIKE THE FATHER THAT
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:03.220
  • BROKE YOUR HEART IS BECAUSE GOD WANTS TO BREAK
  • 00:01:03.240 --> 00:01:05.130
  • THE BACK OF THE ENEMY WHEN YOU RAISE THIS
  • 00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:06.280
  • ONE WITH SOME INTEGRITY.
  • 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:09.090

  • THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN.

  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE HERE BECAUSE TONIGHT
  • 00:01:30.020 --> 00:01:32.100
  • IS A CRITICAL NIGHT.
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:34.000
  • WE'RE BRINGING THIS WHOLE THING HOME.
  • 00:01:34.020 --> 00:01:36.010
  • THIS IS THE CONCLUSION OF THE ""WINNING THE
  • 00:01:36.030 --> 00:01:38.250
  • BATTLE"" SERIES.
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:40.180
  • TONIGHT, YOU'RE GOING TO BE RECEIVING SOME PROFOUND
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:43.030
  • REVELATION REGARDING FAMILY MATTERS.
  • 00:01:43.050 --> 00:01:45.150
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE ENEMY HATES COVENANT,
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:49.040
  • AND HE FIGHTS AGAINST FAMILY, AND I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:01:49.060 --> 00:01:51.250
  • KNOW THAT IF YOU CAN HAVE VICTORY IN YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:01:51.270 --> 00:01:54.110
  • YOU WILL SEE VICTORY IN EVERY OTHER AREA
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.090
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:58.010
  • SO I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE TIME FOR VICTORY IS
  • 00:01:58.030 --> 00:02:00.120
  • NOT NEXT WEEK OR THREE WEEKS FROM TODAY.
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:02.210
  • THE TIME IS NOW, NOW, NOW! THIS MOMENT.
  • 00:02:02.230 --> 00:02:06.220
  • SO I NEED YOU TO GRAB THIS WORD.
  • 00:02:06.240 --> 00:02:08.230
  • I NEED YOU TO GET REAL HUNGRY AND EXPECT GOD TO
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:11.280
  • MEET YOU WITH SUPERNATURAL REVELATION THAT WILL
  • 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:14.110
  • SPEAK DIRECTLY TO YOUR SITUATION.
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:16.280
  • YEAH, WE'RE WRAPPING THIS THING UP, AND THERE'S SOME
  • 00:02:17.000 --> 00:02:19.260
  • STUFF IN HERE THAT'S GOING TO BLESS YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:02:19.280 --> 00:02:22.150
  • CALL YOUR AUNT.
  • 00:02:22.170 --> 00:02:24.060
  • CALL YOUR COUSINS, AND PUSH THAT DVR BUTTON.
  • 00:02:24.080 --> 00:02:26.000
  • YOU NEED TO RECORD THIS.
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.220
  • TELL SOMEBODY THERE'S A LARGE BROWN MAN ON THE TV
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:30.150
  • YELLING FOR NO REASON, AND HE WANTS YOU TO ME THAT
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:34.170
  • GOD HAS AN AMAZING VICTORY WAITING FOR YOU.
  • 00:02:34.190 --> 00:02:38.130
  • IT'S "WINNING THE BATTLE".
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:40.050
  • LET'S WIN THOSE BATTLES WITH OUR FAMILY, AND I'LL
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:42.160
  • SEE YOU ONCE THE WORD IS DONE.
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:44.220
  • IT'S JOHN GRAY'S WORLD.
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:47.020
  • - WE ARE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS, AND THERE'S
  • 00:02:47.040 --> 00:02:50.190
  • A MIRACLE THAT'S IN THIS ROOM TONIGHT, AND IT'S NOT
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:54.250
  • AN INDIVIDUAL MIRACLE.
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:57.010
  • IT IS A CORPORATE MIRACLE, AND IT'S NOT JUST
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:59.140
  • CORPORATE, BUT IT IS FAMILIAL.
  • 00:02:59.160 --> 00:03:01.050
  • IT IS A FAMILY MIRACLE.
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:02.280
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE KNOW THAT THE FAMILY IS UNDER
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:05.080
  • ATTACK, AND WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR THE
  • 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:08.170
  • INTEGRITY OF FAMILY.
  • 00:03:08.190 --> 00:03:12.090
  • THAT WAS A VERY MIDDLING APPLAUSE FOR WHAT IS
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:15.090
  • CLEARLY THE TOP PRIORITY ON HELL'S AGENDA.
  • 00:03:15.110 --> 00:03:19.120
  • THE ENEMY IS FIGHTING AGAINST HUSBANDS,
  • 00:03:19.140 --> 00:03:22.010
  • FATHERS, MARRIAGES.
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:24.210
  • HE'S TRYING TO GET CHILDREN.
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:26.080
  • I CAN'T STAND MY MAMA. SHE DON'T UNDERSTAND ME.
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:28.030
  • YOU GET ON MY NERVES, TOO. GET OUT OF MY FACE.
  • 00:03:28.050 --> 00:03:30.060
  • I WORK TOO HARD FOR YOU TO DISRESPECT ME.
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:31.270
  • Y'ALL DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT
  • 00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:33.110
  • I'M GOING THROUGH.
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:35.060
  • SO NOW THERE'S ALL THIS DRAMA IN THE HOUSE, AND
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:36.170
  • THERE'S DRAMA BETWEEN MOTHER AND DAUGHTER,
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:37.220
  • FATHER AND SON.
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.000
  • THERE'S ALL OF THESE ISSUES.
  • 00:03:39.020 --> 00:03:40.160
  • THE ENEMY IS ATTACKING FAMILY, AND TONIGHT, WE'RE
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:45.020
  • GOING TO FIGHT FOR THE FAMILY.
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:46.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:52.150
  • I SAID TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT FOR THE FAMILY.
  • 00:03:52.170 --> 00:03:54.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:57.210
  • I AM NOT GOING TO HEAVEN WITHOUT MY FAMILY.
  • 00:03:57.230 --> 00:04:01.260
  • I'M NOT LETTING MY COUSINS BURN BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:05.020
  • ENOUGH UNDERSTANDING AND ENOUGH PASSION TO
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:07.100
  • FIGHT FOR THEIR SOUL.
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:09.230
  • DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU DIDN'T GET TO
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:13.000
  • CHOOSE YOUR FAMILY?
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.150
  • YOU DIDN'T GET TO CHOOSE.
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:16.030
  • NONE OF US GOT A CHANCE TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION.
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:18.220
  • I'D LIKE TO BE BORN TO THE GATES' FAMILY IN SEATTLE.
  • 00:04:18.240 --> 00:04:24.030
  • THAT'S WHERE I WANT YOU TO PUT ME.
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:25.180
  • PUT THE AND THE SEED IN SEATTLE, BUT GIVE ME
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:29.030
  • BETTER HAIR THAN MY DADDY, BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS...
  • 00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:33.180
  • WE DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO CHOOSE OUR PARENTS.
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:36.080
  • WE DIDN'T CHOOSE OUR LINEAGE, BUT WE ARE
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:39.070
  • EXACTLY WHERE GOD WANTED US TO BE.
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:43.000
  • AND IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER, THEN THE BLESSING IS ON
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:46.190
  • YOU, AND IF GOD GAVE IT TO YOU, YOU ARE THE ONE THAT
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:49.210
  • IS SUPPOSED TO IMPART, SHARE, DISSEMINATE AND
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:53.000
  • DECLARE SALVATION FOR EVERYTHING
  • 00:04:53.020 --> 00:04:55.230
  • IN YOUR BLOODLINE.
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.180
  • CAN I GET A GOOD AMEN IN HERE IF YOU BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:05:01.140
  • YOU ARE THE ONE THAT CAN CHANGE THE ENTIRE
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:03.170
  • LINEAGE OF YOUR FAMILY?
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:05.290
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT THE ONES THAT GET DRUNK ON FOURTH
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:08.160
  • OF JULY, LABOR DAY, VETERAN'S DAY, CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:11.120
  • THEY JUST NEED A REASON.
  • 00:05:11.140 --> 00:05:13.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:13.040 --> 00:05:16.090
  • GOD IS SAYING, I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU THE WORD OF
  • 00:05:16.110 --> 00:05:19.180
  • THE LORD AND AN EXAMPLE IN THE LIFE THAT YOU LIVE
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:22.120
  • THAT'S GOING TO WIN THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU.
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:27.030
  • AND TONIGHT, I GOT A LOT TO TRY TO UNPACK.
  • 00:05:27.050 --> 00:05:31.030
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I'M GOING TO GET THROUGH.
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:32.290
  • IF NOT, THANK GOD I'M PLANTED IN THIS CHURCH, SO
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:35.170
  • I CAN ALWAYS FINISH IT ON ANOTHER WEEK.
  • 00:05:35.190 --> 00:05:37.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:43.060
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'M REALLY IMPACTED BY IS THAT
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:47.190
  • THIS IS A FAMILY MINISTRY.
  • 00:05:47.210 --> 00:05:51.250
  • IT STARTED WITH PASTOR JOHN AND DODIE OSTEEN, AND
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:56.000
  • THE LEGACY THAT THEY ESTABLISHED HAS NOW
  • 00:05:56.020 --> 00:06:00.020
  • TOUCHED THE EARTH BECAUSE OF OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:05.180
  • WHEN NOBODY KNEW WHAT THIS PLACE WAS, WHEN PEOPLE
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:08.240
  • WERE PLAYING BASKETBALL HERE 15, 20 YEARS AGO, GOD
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:13.030
  • HAD ALREADY SET THIS PLACE UP TO BE THIS CHURCH.
  • 00:06:13.050 --> 00:06:16.080
  • HE LET SOMEBODY ELSE BUILD IT FOR US TO OCCUPY IT.
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:20.040
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO SHOUT TONIGHT.
  • 00:06:20.060 --> 00:06:22.010
  • YOU WANT TO BE CONSERVATIVE.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.170
  • THAT'S ALL RIGHT, HELP YOURSELF.
  • 00:06:23.190 --> 00:06:25.130
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:28.010
  • BUT THE LEGACY OF THIS HOUSE IS A LEGACY OF MIRACLES.
  • 00:06:28.030 --> 00:06:31.060
  • IT'S A LEGACY OF THE SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:33.150
  • IT'S A TESTIMONY TO HOMOGENIZATION,
  • 00:06:33.170 --> 00:06:36.030
  • OF BREAKING DOWN RACIAL AND MULTI-GENERATIONAL BARRIERS.
  • 00:06:36.050 --> 00:06:39.250
  • FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, THAT'S WHAT THIS PLACE
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:42.210
  • WAS, AND IT MAKES NO SENSE FOR A PLACE LIKE THIS TO
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:45.130
  • BE IN HOUSTON, NOT IN THE SOUTH, NOT IN THE WEST,
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:48.200
  • NOT DOWN HERE, MAYBE IN THE NORTHEAST, MAYBE
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:51.110
  • SOMEWHERE WHERE IT'S MORE LIBERAL, BUT NOT DOWN
  • 00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:53.180
  • HERE, BUT GOD DECIDED, I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:56.230
  • UNPRECEDENTED IN A PLACE YOU LEAST EXPECTED IT.
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:59.100
  • AND LOOK AT YOU, A RECIPIENT OF SOMEBODY
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:03.060
  • ELSE'S FAITH, OF SOMEBODY ELSE'S PRAYERS, OF SOMEONE
  • 00:07:03.080 --> 00:07:06.200
  • ELSE'S SACRIFICE, AND SOMEONE ELSE SAYING
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:09.100
  • YES TO GOD.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.000
  • WE NEED TO THANK GOD THAT SOMEBODY SAID YES.
  • 00:07:11.020 --> 00:07:13.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:07:13.050 --> 00:07:17.260
  • NOT ONLY PASTOR JOHN AND DODIE, BUT TO THEIR
  • 00:07:17.280 --> 00:07:20.170
  • CHILDREN WHO ARE ALL IN VARYING FORMS OF MINISTRY;
  • 00:07:20.190 --> 00:07:24.290
  • AN UNBELIEVABLE LEGACY, A FAMILY LEGACY, AND THAT IS
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:29.240
  • NOT LOST ON ME.
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:31.260
  • TONIGHT, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR LEGACY.
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:34.290
  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO THROUGH
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:37.210
  • YOUR FAMILY, THROUGH YOUR HOUSEHOLD, FOR YOUR
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:40.120
  • MARRIAGE, FOR THEM KIDS THAT GET ON YOUR NERVES,
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:45.110
  • AND YOU CAN'T DO WHAT YOU WANT BECAUSE THEY'LL CALL
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:47.100
  • THE PEOPLE ON YOU NOW.
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:48.220
  • THEY GOT NUMBERS TO CALL.
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:50.090
  • I FEEL THREATENED AND ABUSED BY MY MOM.
  • 00:07:50.110 --> 00:07:52.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:57.010
  • WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, I TOLD HER, MOM, I'M GOING
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:58.190
  • CALL THE NUMBER.
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:07:59.260
  • SHE SAID, IF YOU CAN GET TO THE PHONE...
  • 00:07:59.280 --> 00:08:01.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:01.160 --> 00:08:03.090
  • TRY ME. TRY ME.
  • 00:08:03.110 --> 00:08:05.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:07.000
  • TRY ME.
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:09.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:13.020
  • WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE LIFE OF DAVID.
  • 00:08:13.040 --> 00:08:17.060
  • A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, WE STARTED WITH GIVE ME FIVE.
  • 00:08:17.080 --> 00:08:19.180
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE HERE FOR GIVE ME FIVE?
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:21.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:24.100
  • GOD TOOK FIVE SMOOTH STONES, AND HERE COME A
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:28.210
  • SNOT NOSED 13 YEAR-OLD KID TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:08:28.230 --> 00:08:31.040
  • YOU AIN'T BAD.
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:33.110
  • NOBODY SCARED OF YOU.
  • 00:08:33.130 --> 00:08:35.130
  • AND WITH ONE OF HIS STONES, TOOK OUT THE GIANT
  • 00:08:35.150 --> 00:08:39.160
  • THAT HAD A WHOLE NATION TERRIFIED.
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:42.200
  • ONE LITTLE TEENAGE BOY GAVE STRENGTH TO
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:44.210
  • A WHOLE NATION.
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:46.130
  • DO YOU UNDERSTAND ALL IT TAKES IS ONE PERSON IN
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:48.090
  • HERE TO GET SUPERNATURAL FAITH TO TAKE OUT THE
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:50.180
  • ENEMY AND IT UNLOCKS BREAKTHROUGH FOR EVERYBODY
  • 00:08:50.200 --> 00:08:52.250
  • IN YOUR ROW, EVERYBODY IN YOUR SECTION?
  • 00:08:52.270 --> 00:08:55.000
  • DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE FAITH FOR YOUR ROW THAT
  • 00:08:55.020 --> 00:08:58.040
  • GOD CAN DO THE SUPERNATURAL?
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:08:59.260
  • ALL I NEED IS ONE REPRESENTATIVE ON EACH
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:02.010
  • ROW, AND IT WILL PERMEATE THE REST OF YOUR ROW.
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:05.180
  • AT YOUR HOUSE, EVEN THOUGH YOUR HUSBAND'S AT WORK,
  • 00:09:05.200 --> 00:09:08.100
  • KIDS ARE UPSTAIRS, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTS TO
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:10.200
  • DO SUPERNATURAL MIRACLES IN YOUR HOUSE?
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:13.070
  • MAYBE YOU'RE LISTENING TO THIS IN YOUR CAR.
  • 00:09:13.090 --> 00:09:15.210
  • I DARE YOU TO BLOW YOUR HORN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:09:15.230 --> 00:09:17.220
  • DON'T SCARE PEOPLE WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING.
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:19.080
  • JUST BELIEVE GOD.
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:20.240
  • WAVE YOUR HAND OUT THE WINDOW.
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:22.100
  • LET THEM KNOW THERE'S A WORSHIPPER ON THE HIGHWAY.
  • 00:09:22.120 --> 00:09:24.180
  • THERE'S A WORSHIPPER ON THE STREET.
  • 00:09:24.200 --> 00:09:27.100
  • THERE'S A WORSHIPPER IN THIS HOUSE.
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:29.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:09:29.050 --> 00:09:32.150
  • WHAT WE LEARNED IS GOD WILL MOVE MOUNTAINS FOR A
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:34.200
  • WORSHIPPER.
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:37.130
  • GIVE ME FIVE.
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:39.040
  • FIND THREE PEOPLE, AND GIVE THEM FIVE.
  • 00:09:39.060 --> 00:09:41.090
  • HIGH FIVE!
  • 00:09:41.110 --> 00:09:47.240
  • I'M TRYING TO BE GOOD IN HERE.
  • 00:09:49.110 --> 00:09:53.000
  • THEN WE WENT TO GIVE ME FIVE PART TWO,
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:55.070
  • BLIND AMBITION.
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:57.060
  • WHO WAS HERE FOR "GIVE ME FIVE" PART TWO?
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:09:58.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:09:58.210 --> 00:10:01.060
  • WE LEARNED THAT AS KING DAVID AND HIS MEN WERE IN
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:04.140
  • THE BACK OF A CAVE, SAUL CAME IN TO RELIEVE
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:08.020
  • HIMSELF, AND THE MEN WITH DAVID SAID, THIS IS THE
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:10.220
  • MOMENT THAT THE LORD SPOKE TO YOU SAYING, I'M GOING
  • 00:10:10.240 --> 00:10:13.100
  • TO DELIVER YOUR ENEMY INTO YOUR HANDS TO SEE WHAT YOU
  • 00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:16.250
  • WILL DO, TO DO WHAT SEEMS BEST TO YOU.
  • 00:10:16.270 --> 00:10:20.140
  • AND GOD WAS TESTING THE POSTURE OF DAVID'S HEART
  • 00:10:20.160 --> 00:10:24.000
  • TO SEE IF HE WAS GOING TO TAKE MATTERS INTO HIS OWN
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:26.200
  • HANDS, EVEN THOUGH HE WAS ANOINTED KING AT 13.
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:30.280
  • WAS HE GOING TO KILL THE LORD'S ANOINTED?
  • 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:35.100
  • WAS HE GOING TO TRY TO MANIPULATE IT AND DO IT
  • 00:10:35.120 --> 00:10:38.010
  • IN HIS TIMING AND HIS WAY?
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:39.280
  • OR WAS HE GOING TO TRUST THE LORD
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.120
  • FOR THE ELEVATION?
  • 00:10:41.140 --> 00:10:43.000
  • TRUST THE LORD FOR THE PROMOTION?
  • 00:10:43.020 --> 00:10:44.160
  • TRUST THE LORD FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:46.000
  • ITSELF IN THE RIGHT WAY?
  • 00:10:46.020 --> 00:10:47.280
  • AND DAVID PASSED THE TEST, AND THE TEST WAS NOT JUST
  • 00:10:48.000 --> 00:10:50.270
  • ABOUT AMBITION.
  • 00:10:50.290 --> 00:10:53.010
  • IT WAS TO CHECK AND SEE IF THERE WAS ANY OF SAUL IN
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:55.000
  • DAVID'S HEART.
  • 00:10:55.020 --> 00:10:57.200
  • IT WAS A SAUL CHECK BECAUSE WHATEVER WAS LIKE
  • 00:10:57.220 --> 00:11:01.260
  • SAUL, GOD WAS GOING TO HAVE TO SAW.
  • 00:11:01.280 --> 00:11:05.270
  • GOD WAS GOING TO HAVE TO IT OFF,
  • 00:11:05.290 --> 00:11:07.160
  • AND THAT'S THE PRUNING PROCESS.
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:09.230
  • MANY OF US HAVE BEEN THERE, AND PRUNING HURTS
  • 00:11:09.250 --> 00:11:11.250
  • BECAUSE HE DOESN'T CUT OFF DEAD THINGS.
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:14.050
  • HE CUTS OFF THINGS THAT ARE ALIVE THAT
  • 00:11:14.070 --> 00:11:15.150
  • SHOULD BE DEAD.
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:17.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:18.240
  • WOO!
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:20.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:20.220 --> 00:11:22.250
  • THAT'S WHY I SAW IT WAS HARD TO LET THE
  • 00:11:22.270 --> 00:11:24.070
  • RELATIONSHIP GO.
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:25.270
  • IT'S HARD BECAUSE THEY HAD A PIECE OF YOUR HEART.
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:28.140
  • YOU WERE EMOTIONALLY CONNECTED, AND GOD SAID, I
  • 00:11:28.160 --> 00:11:30.040
  • DON'T CARE WHAT YOU FEEL BECAUSE SOMETIMES,
  • 00:11:30.060 --> 00:11:32.080
  • IT FEELS GOOD.
  • 00:11:32.100 --> 00:11:34.130
  • THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT TO A MAN, BUT IN THE
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:37.070
  • END, THAT THING LEADS TO DEATH.
  • 00:11:37.090 --> 00:11:39.110
  • I GOT TO CUT IT OFF BECAUSE I LOVE YOU TOO
  • 00:11:39.130 --> 00:11:41.080
  • MUCH TO LET YOU DIE IN YOUR FEELINGS.
  • 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:43.270
  • DON'T LET YOUR FEELINGS GET YOU SENT TO HELL.
  • 00:11:43.290 --> 00:11:45.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:45.220 --> 00:11:51.120
  • WE TALKED ABOUT THERE IS A BAD AMBITION WHERE YOU TRY
  • 00:11:51.140 --> 00:11:55.110
  • TO GET WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU PREMATURELY, BUT
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:58.250
  • THERE'S ALSO A GOOD AMBITION WHERE YOU GO
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:01.000
  • AFTER THE THING THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU, BUT YOU DO IT
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:04.110
  • WITH A PASSION AND A RESOLVE THAT NO MATTER
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:06.280
  • WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY, YOU'RE GOING TO GO AFTER
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:09.100
  • WHAT GOD HAS PLACED IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:12:09.120 --> 00:12:11.260
  • THERE'S A GOOD AMBITION, AND IT'S ROOTED IN
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:14.030
  • ACKNOWLEDGING WHO JESUS IS.
  • 00:12:14.050 --> 00:12:15.270
  • AND WE LEARNED ABOUT BARTIMAEUS, THE SON OF
  • 00:12:15.290 --> 00:12:17.290
  • TIMAEUS WHOSE NAME MEANS "IMPURE" OR "UNCLEAN".
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:21.010
  • SON OF THE UNCLEAN ONE.
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:23.010
  • HE HAS A LEGACY OF UNCLEANNESS.
  • 00:12:23.030 --> 00:12:24.190
  • ONE IN THE ARAMAIC MEANT UNCLEAN, BUT THE GREEK
  • 00:12:24.210 --> 00:12:27.190
  • MEANS HONORABLE, SO HE HAD TWO THINGS GOING ON.
  • 00:12:27.210 --> 00:12:31.010
  • HE BATTLED WITH THE IMPURE NATURE OF HIS SEED AND THE
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:34.030
  • LEGACY, BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE, HE KNEW HE HAD
  • 00:12:34.050 --> 00:12:36.190
  • SOMETHING GOOD ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:38.040
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE WAS A BLIND MAN, AND HE
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:40.130
  • HAD A CLOAK.
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:42.160
  • HE HEARD THAT JESUS WAS WALKING BY, AND HE
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:45.180
  • SCREAMED OUT, "JESUS, SON OF DAVID,
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:47.170
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME!"
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:49.120
  • AND THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM SAY, HEY, MAN, WHY DON'T
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:51.280
  • YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH?
  • 00:12:52.000 --> 00:12:53.080
  • YOU'RE ALWAYS TALKING.
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:54.180
  • AIN'T NOBODY HEARING YOU.
  • 00:12:54.200 --> 00:12:55.290
  • AND HE SAID, I'M NOT LISTENING TO YOU.
  • 00:12:56.010 --> 00:12:57.110
  • I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:58.210
  • I CAN'T EVEN SEE YOU ANYWAY.
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:12:59.280
  • YOU DON'T EVEN MATTER TO ME.
  • 00:13:00.020 --> 00:13:01.080
  • AND HE SAID, THIS IS MY ONE CHANCE.
  • 00:13:01.100 --> 00:13:03.160
  • AND HE DIDN'T CALL HIM "SON OF MARY",
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.200
  • "SON OF JOSEPH".
  • 00:13:05.220 --> 00:13:07.010
  • HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING.
  • 00:13:07.030 --> 00:13:08.230
  • HE GAVE HIM HIS MESSIANIC TITLE I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:11.080
  • YOU'RE THE RIGHTFUL HEIR TO THE THRONE OF DAVID.
  • 00:13:11.100 --> 00:13:13.160
  • YOU CAN RESTORE ALL THINGS.
  • 00:13:13.180 --> 00:13:16.020
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS STOOD STILL AND SAID, THAT
  • 00:13:16.040 --> 00:13:18.070
  • ONE, BRING HIM.
  • 00:13:18.090 --> 00:13:19.260
  • EVERYBODY ELSE WAS SCREAMING, BUT THE ONE WHO
  • 00:13:19.280 --> 00:13:21.230
  • UNDERSTANDS WHAT I AM, WHAT I CARRY, THAT I'M THE
  • 00:13:21.250 --> 00:13:23.260
  • BALLER AND THE SHOT CALLER IN THE EARTH, THAT DEVILS
  • 00:13:23.280 --> 00:13:26.170
  • BOW DOWN WHEN I MOVE, THAT HELL RUNS WHEN I SPEAK,
  • 00:13:26.190 --> 00:13:30.130
  • THE ONE WHO KNOWS THAT I AM THE ONE, THE FIRST AND
  • 00:13:30.150 --> 00:13:33.060
  • THE LAST, THE BEGINNING AND THE END.
  • 00:13:33.080 --> 00:13:34.240
  • BRING HIM OVER HERE.
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:36.100
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:13:36.120 --> 00:13:38.190
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THIS MAN WAS SO FULL OF FAITH
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:42.140
  • AND BELIEVING SO MUCH THAT JESUS COULD HEAL HIM THAT
  • 00:13:42.160 --> 00:13:45.050
  • JESUS DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT IT WAS HE NEEDED.
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:48.010
  • HE SAID, WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO FOR YOU?
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:50.050
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IN THIS SEASON, YOUR FAITH IS
  • 00:13:50.070 --> 00:13:52.100
  • GOING PUT YOU IN A POSITION WHERE YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:54.190
  • EVEN GOING TO LOOK LIKE THE THING THAT YOU
  • 00:13:54.210 --> 00:13:56.090
  • NEED DELIVERANCE FROM.
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:58.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:13:58.040 --> 00:14:03.000
  • AND HE SAID, RABBONI, OR TEACHER, TELL ME.
  • 00:14:03.020 --> 00:14:05.270
  • I WANT TO BE YOUR DISCIPLE THAT I MAY
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:07.140
  • RECEIVE MY SIGHT.
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:09.170
  • THE MOMENT HE GOT HIS BLESSING, HE BEGAN TO
  • 00:14:09.190 --> 00:14:11.140
  • FOLLOW JESUS ALONG THE ROAD MANY HE DIDN'T JUST
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:14.120
  • GET HIS MIRACLE AND GO BACK TO WRONG LIVING.
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:18.000
  • HE SAID, ONCE YOU DO THIS, I'M NEVER TURNING BACK.
  • 00:14:18.020 --> 00:14:21.090
  • [SINGING] NOT GOING BACK, MOVING AHEAD, I'M HERE TO
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:26.210
  • DECLARE TO YOU MY PAST IS OVER IN YOU, ALL THINGS

  • ARE MADE NEW, SURRENDER MY LIFE TO CHRIST,
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:37.200
  • MOVING, MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:14:37.220 --> 00:14:42.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:49.110
  • HERE, IN THIS PLACE, YOU SEE THIS MAN DECLARING, NO
  • 00:14:49.130 --> 00:14:57.160
  • MATTER WHAT I SEE, NO MATTER WHAT I'M DEALING
  • 00:14:57.180 --> 00:15:02.070
  • WITH, I'M NOT GOING BACK. I'M MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:10.060
  • BUT THIS DAVID THING STAYS IN MY HEART, AND TONIGHT,
  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:14.160
  • FOR THE FEW MINUTES THAT I HAVE, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:17.120
  • GIVE ME FIVE PART THREE, FAMILY MATTERS,
  • 00:15:17.140 --> 00:15:20.050
  • FAMILY MATTERS.
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:24.210
  • WHAT'S FUNNY IS I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED,
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:31.100
  • BUT FOR SOME REASON, MY NOTES JUST LEFT.
  • 00:15:31.120 --> 00:15:36.280
  • ALL MY NOTES, WHICH MEANS I'M GOING TO PREACH
  • 00:15:37.000 --> 00:15:39.290
  • WHAT'S IN MY HEART.
  • 00:15:40.010 --> 00:15:41.280
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:15:42.000 --> 00:15:47.240
  • HELP ME, HOLY GHOST. I SAID, HELP ME, HOLY GHOST.
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:53.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:57.110
  • THIS THING STARTED WITH DAVID IN A SHEEP FIELD
  • 00:15:57.130 --> 00:16:02.190
  • FOLLOWING SHEEP. THE 8TH SON OF JESSE.
  • 00:16:02.210 --> 00:16:07.040
  • HIS MOTHER'S NAME IS NOT MENTIONED, DR. PAUL.
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:10.010
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET TO THAT IN A MINUTE.
  • 00:16:10.030 --> 00:16:13.020
  • WE KNOW THAT HE KILLED A LION AND A BEAR.
  • 00:16:13.040 --> 00:16:15.090
  • HE KILLED A GIANT NAMED GOLIATH.
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:18.080
  • WE KNOW OF HIS VICTORIES.
  • 00:16:18.100 --> 00:16:20.080
  • SAUL HAS SLAIN HIS THOUSANDS,
  • 00:16:20.100 --> 00:16:22.020
  • DAVID TENS OF THOUSANDS.

  • GOD'S OWN HEART.
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:49.030
  • HIS HEART REMINDED GOD OF HIMSELF.

  • YEAH, THAT'S MY BOY, THOUGH, BECAUSE NO MATTER
  • 00:16:55.220 --> 00:16:58.150
  • WHAT HE DID, NO MATTER WHAT HE WENT THROUGH, HE
  • 00:16:58.170 --> 00:17:01.030
  • WOULD FIND HIMSELF IN A POSTURE OF WORSHIP.
  • 00:17:01.050 --> 00:17:04.060
  • DAVID'S DEFAULT SETTING WAS WORSHIP.
  • 00:17:04.080 --> 00:17:07.290
  • HE'D MESS UP IN HIS LIFE, WORSHIP.

  • HIS WAY THROUGH IT.
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:43.110
  • WHEN HE WAS BY HIMSELF, HE'D BE SINGING SONGS.
  • 00:17:43.130 --> 00:17:45.240
  • WHEN HE WAS THINKING ABOUT GOD, HE'D BE WITH THE
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:47.290
  • SHEEP, HE'D BE WRITING SONGS.
  • 00:17:48.010 --> 00:17:49.190
  • HIS POSTURE WAS A LIFESTYLE OF WORSHIP.
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:56.220
  • SO HE HAD SOME STRONG POINTS, BUT JUST LIKE

  • HE WAS A STRATEGIST, A GREAT MOTIVATOR.
  • 00:18:13.220 --> 00:18:17.130
  • HE KNEW HOW TO FIGHT. HE KNEW HOW TO PRAISE.
  • 00:18:17.150 --> 00:18:20.290
  • BUT HE STRUGGLED WITH HIS HOME LIFE, AND A LOT OF US
