  • YOU THINK WHAT'S HAPPENING IS BY CHANCE?
  • 00:00:35.030 --> 00:00:37.270
  • Y'ALL RUNNING AROUND SCREAMING TRYING TO BE BACK IN THE 60S
  • 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:41.120
  • LIKE THIS IS A POLITICAL MOVE.
  • 00:00:41.150 --> 00:00:43.030
  • THIS AIN'T ABOUT POLITICS, THIS IS SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:00:43.060 --> 00:00:45.240
  • EVERYTHING HAPPENING IS SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:00:45.270 --> 00:00:48.190
  • THE ELECTION WAS SPIRITUAL. THE CONFLICTS ARE SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:00:48.220 --> 00:00:52.210
  • WAKE UP!
  • 00:00:52.240 --> 00:00:54.160
  • YOUR GENERATION DOESN'T NEED TO BE AN ACTIVIST GENERATION
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:58.270
  • IT NEEDS TO BE A REVIVALIST GENERATION.
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:02.180
  • WE NEED REVIVAL AND REVIVAL STARTS WITH WORSHIP.
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:07.020

  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:13.210

  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:15.200
  • AND A WHOLE LOTTA HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:01:15.230 --> 00:01:18.220
  • JOHN GRAY'S WORLD. BEW!
  • 00:01:18.250 --> 00:01:21.070
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:26.220
  • GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY AND WELCOME TO TODAY'S BROADCAST.
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:29.260
  • I'M JOHN GRAY AND THIS IS JOHN GRAY'S WORLD.
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:33.190
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE ADDRESSING A SUBJECT
  • 00:01:33.220 --> 00:01:35.060
  • THAT AFFECTS ALL OF US: THE WAR WITHIN.
  • 00:01:35.090 --> 00:01:39.040
  • YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:01:39.070 --> 00:01:41.280
  • THE SPIRITUAL PART OF YOU IS DRAWN
  • 00:01:42.010 --> 00:01:43.100
  • TOWARDS THE THINGS OF GOD,
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:44.290
  • YET YOU ALSO SENSE THE PULL IN THE OTHER DIRECTION
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:48.280
  • TOWARDS THE DARKNESS BECAUSE OF YOUR FLESH.
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:52.110
  • THE CARNAL, OLD, UNRENEWED WAY OF THINKING,
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:55.290
  • UNRENEWED WAY OF LIVING, UNSUBMITTED HABITS.
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:59.200
  • THESE TWO POLARIC DYNAMICS ARE ALWAYS OPPOSED
  • 00:01:59.230 --> 00:02:02.270
  • TO EACH OTHER.
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:05.030
  • BECAUSE OF THIS, WE ALL ENDURE A BATTLE
  • 00:02:05.060 --> 00:02:07.210
  • THAT RAGES DAILY WITHIN US.
  • 00:02:07.240 --> 00:02:10.170
  • SO TODAY I WANT TO SHARE SOME THINGS THAT HAVE HELPED ME
  • 00:02:10.200 --> 00:02:14.010
  • PERSONALLY IN MY OWN WALK OF VICTORY WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:18.050
  • AND THESE LESSONS DID NOT COME WITHOUT TEARS
  • 00:02:18.080 --> 00:02:20.270
  • AND WITHOUT A PRICE.
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:22.290
  • SO I'M NOT JUST THROWING THESE OUT THERE.
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:26.100
  • I NEED YOU TO GRAB THEM AND RECEIVE THESE TRUTHS.
  • 00:02:26.130 --> 00:02:29.030
  • I WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:02:29.060 --> 00:02:30.140
  • WHEN YOU STOP RUNNING FROM THIS BATTLE AND RUN TOWARDS GOD.
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:35.030
  • HE CAN CHANGE YOU AND ANY CIRCUMSTANCE
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:38.250
  • SO LISTEN WITH SOME INTENSITY
  • 00:02:38.280 --> 00:02:40.180
  • AND IF YOU'RE PRESENTLY FEELING OVERWHELMED WITH THE FIGHT,
  • 00:02:40.210 --> 00:02:43.180
  • I PRAY YOU'RE INSPIRED AND UPLIFTED
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:46.120
  • WITH THESE PROMISES FROM GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:02:46.150 --> 00:02:49.070
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:51.020
  • SOME DAYS, IT'S EASIER TO SERVE GOD THAN OTHERS.
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:56.120
  • CAN I BE HONEST THAT THERE ARE TIMES
  • 00:02:56.150 --> 00:02:58.240
  • WHEN I DON'T FEEL LIKE I HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF FIGHT LEFT.
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:03.110
  • OR IT'S JUST ME APPARENTLY,
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:04.290
  • SO I'LL JUST PREACH TO ME.
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:06.220
  • WELL THEN TALK BACK, YOU KNOW BETTER!
  • 00:03:06.250 --> 00:03:09.000
  • SITTING OUT THERE QUIET, WHAT DO I LOOK LIKE, A PROFESSOR?
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:12.060
  • DON'T BE LIKE, "PROFESSOR KLUMP," THAT'S NOT FUNNY.
  • 00:03:12.090 --> 00:03:15.100
  • [LAUGHTER] THAT'S NOT FUNNY.
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:17.160
  • "WELL DADDY, THE FAT IS FOUND IN THE SKIN OF THE CHICKEN."
  • 00:03:17.190 --> 00:03:21.060
  • [LAUGHS]
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:25.180
  • I WANT TO SERVE GOD ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:03:25.210 --> 00:03:29.190
  • BUT PEOPLE GET ON MY NERVES.
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:31.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:36.150
  • SOMEBODY'S LIKE, "YES! PEOPLE, JESUS."
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:42.160
  • I DO, I WANT TO SERVE GOD BUT PEOPLE GET IN THE WAY.
  • 00:03:42.190 --> 00:03:47.180
  • I WANT TO WORSHIP BUT THEN I SEE SOMEBODY
  • 00:03:47.210 --> 00:03:49.260
  • THAT SAID SOMETHING ABOUT ME OVER HERE.
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:52.190
  • NOW I GOT TO FOCUS LORD, I WANT TO SAY THE WRONG THING
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:55.090
  • BUT LET ME JUST KEEP SINGING.
  • 00:03:55.120 --> 00:03:56.290
  • [SINGING] OOOHHH...OOOHHH...
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:04:01.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:03.050
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING? JUST ROLL YOUR EYES...
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:07.040
  • AND IF IT'S NOT PEOPLE, IT'S THAT DEVIL.
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:15.060
  • BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH WE LIVE IN A NATURAL WORLD,
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:17.050
  • WE ARE PART OF A SPIRITUAL REALITY.
  • 00:04:17.080 --> 00:04:20.030
  • SO WHAT DO WE DO IN THE TIMES THAT EXIST?
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:23.190
  • GO TO ROMANS CHAPTER 7, STARTING AT THE 13TH VERSE.
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:30.000
  • HAS THEN WHAT IS GOOD BECOME DEATH TO ME?
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:33.020
  • CERTAINLY NOT!
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:34.150
  • BUT SIN, SOMEBODY SAY SIN,
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:36.220
  • - [AUDIENCE] SIN!
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:37.240
  • - Y'ALL DON'T HEAR THAT WORD A LOT THESE DAYS
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:39.290
  • ACROSS CHRISTENDOM.
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:41.100
  • WE DON'T TALK ABOUT SIN,
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:43.080
  • WE DON'T TALK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:46.000
  • APPARENTLY JESUS MAYBE WAS JUST A NICE GUY
  • 00:04:46.030 --> 00:04:49.150
  • THAT DIED AND WAS GREAT AND ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:51.160
  • BUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:53.020
  • SIN IS WHAT COST JESUS HIS LIFE.
  • 00:04:53.050 --> 00:04:58.210
  • AND SIN IS WHAT HIS BLOOD PAID FOR.
  • 00:04:58.240 --> 00:05:01.190
  • AND SIN WILL GET YOU CUT OFF FROM THE HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:05.180
  • AND JESUS IS THE FULL PAYMENT FOR OUR SIN.
  • 00:05:05.210 --> 00:05:09.150
  • THE WRONG, THE MISSING OF THE MARK,
  • 00:05:09.180 --> 00:05:12.030
  • THE THINGS WE HAVE NOT DONE RIGHT.
  • 00:05:12.060 --> 00:05:14.110
  • SOMEBODY SAY SIN.
  • 00:05:14.140 --> 00:05:15.110
  • - [AUDIENCE] SIN.
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:17.100
  • - ONE MOVIE SAID, "SINNY, SIN SIN."
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:21.080
  • IT WAS FROM THE MOVIE FRIDAY BUT
  • 00:05:21.110 --> 00:05:22.160
  • THREE OF Y'ALL HAVE SEEN THAT,
  • 00:05:22.190 --> 00:05:23.230
  • THE REST OF Y'ALL HAVEN'T.
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:26.100
  • WATCH THIS, BUT SIN,
  • 00:05:26.130 --> 00:05:28.070
  • THAT IT MIGHT APPEAR SIN,
  • 00:05:28.100 --> 00:05:29.140
  • WAS PRODUCING DEATH IN ME THROUGH WHAT IS GOOD,
  • 00:05:29.170 --> 00:05:32.230
  • SO THAT SIN THROUGH THE COMMANDMENT
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:35.030
  • MIGHT BECOME EXCEEDINGLY SINFUL.
  • 00:05:35.060 --> 00:05:37.170
  • SO WHAT THIS SCRIPTURE IS SAYING, THIS IS PAUL,
  • 00:05:37.200 --> 00:05:40.150
  • HE'S LIKE, SIN ACTUALLY FOR SOME OF US
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:43.170
  • WASN'T BAD UNTIL WE GOT THE REVELATION
  • 00:05:43.200 --> 00:05:45.210
  • THAT GOD HAD A DIFFERENT CALLING ON OUR LIFE
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:47.100
  • AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, SOME OF THE STUFF
  • 00:05:47.130 --> 00:05:49.040
  • THAT WE WERE DOING, NOW THAT WE REALIZE IT'S WRONG,
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:52.000
  • IT'S ALMOST LIKE IT INTENSIFIED.
  • 00:05:52.030 --> 00:05:54.230
  • ANYBODY EVER FEEL LIKE WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO DO RIGHT
  • 00:05:54.260 --> 00:05:56.130
  • THAT THING THAT'S WRONG, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:58.290
  • IT'S RIGHT THERE, JUST BE RIGHT THERE, LIKE,
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:00.190
  • "YOU DON'T WANT TO LEAVE ME. YOU DON'T WANT TO LEAVE ME!
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:03.130
  • YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO DO IT AGAIN,
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:04.150
  • YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO DRINK SOME MORE,
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:05.250
  • YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO SMOKE THAT, JUST HIT IT ONE MORE TIME,
  • 00:06:05.280 --> 00:06:08.090
  • JUST GO OVER TO HER HOUSE ONE MORE TIME,
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.050
  • JUST LET HIM COME OVER ONE MORE TIME."
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:12.020
  • Y'ALL NOT GOING TO SAY AMEN BECAUSE
  • 00:06:12.050 --> 00:06:13.140
  • YOU DON'T WANT ANYBODY TO KNOW YOU NASTY.
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:15.220
  • [LAUGHING]
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:22.070
  • FOR WE KNOW THAT THE LAW IS SPIRITUAL,
  • 00:06:22.100 --> 00:06:24.050
  • BUT I AM CARNAL, SOLD UNDER SIN.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:28.190
  • FOR WHAT I AM DOING, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:30.250
  • WATCH THIS:
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:31.280
  • FOR WHAT I WILL TO DO, THAT I DO NOT PRACTICE.
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:34.190
  • ANYBODY EVER BEEN THERE?
  • 00:06:34.220 --> 00:06:36.000
  • YOU BE IN HERE WORSHIPING AND THEN,
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:37.150
  • THAT'S ONE OF Y'ALL,
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:38.190
  • NOBODY ELSE WANTS TO RAISE THEIR HAND, IT'S OKAY.
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:40.100
  • WHAT I WILL TO DO, THAT I DO NOT PRACTICE.
  • 00:06:40.130 --> 00:06:46.070
  • WHAT I WILL TO DO, THAT I DO NOT PRACTICE;
  • 00:06:46.100 --> 00:06:48.230
  • BUT WHAT I HATE, THAT I DO.
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:52.100
  • IF, THEN, I DO WHAT I WILL NOT TO DO,
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:54.260
  • I AGREE WITH THE LAW THAT IT IS GOOD.
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:57.180
  • BUT NOW, IT IS NO LONGER I WHO DO IT,
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:06:59.080
  • BUT SIN THAT DWELLS IN ME.
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:01.150
  • FOR I KNOW THAT IN ME, THAT IS, IN MY FLESH,
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:04.060
  • NOTHING GOOD DWELLS;
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:06.250
  • FOR TO WILL IS PRESENT WITH ME,
  • 00:07:06.280 --> 00:07:09.030
  • BUT HOW TO PERFORM WHAT IS GOOD I DO NOT FIND.
  • 00:07:09.060 --> 00:07:12.260
  • WHAT THAT'S SAYING IS, YOU HAVE A HEART FOR GOD,
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:15.050
  • YOU SERVE GOD, YOU'VE BEEN IN HERE WORSHIPING 40 MINUTES
  • 00:07:15.080 --> 00:07:18.060
  • SINGING SONGS AND YOU DON'T EVEN SING,
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:20.030
  • YOU JUST OFF KEY, JUST IN HERE OFF KEY
  • 00:07:20.060 --> 00:07:23.040
  • BUT YOU LOVE GOD BECAUSE IT'S NOT ABOUT YOUR TALENT
  • 00:07:23.070 --> 00:07:26.150
  • IT'S ABOUT YOUR HEART AND SO HE RECEIVES YOUR WORSHIP
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:29.110
  • HE RECEIVES YOUR PRAYER, HE RECEIVES YOUR PRAISE.
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:32.060
  • BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE LIKE ME AT MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:07:32.090 --> 00:07:36.090
  • YOU LEAVE A CORPORATE SETTING LIKE THIS
  • 00:07:36.120 --> 00:07:38.230
  • ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE THINGS YOU WERE WALKING THROUGH,
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:41.260
  • STRUGGLING WITH AND BATTLING WERE STILL THERE
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:44.160
  • ONCE THE WORSHIP WAS OVER?
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:48.060
  • ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:53.180
  • SO, FOR THE GOOD THAT I WILL TO DO I DO NOT DO,
  • 00:07:53.210 --> 00:07:57.120
  • BUT THE EVIL I WILL NOT TO DO, THAT I PRACTICE.
  • 00:07:57.150 --> 00:08:01.050
  • NOW THEN I'M GOING TO GO RIGHT ON DOWN TO 21.
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:03.110
  • I FIND THEN A LAW, THAT EVIL IS PRESENT WITH ME,
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:06.010
  • THE ONE WHO WILLS TO DO GOOD.
  • 00:08:06.040 --> 00:08:09.120
  • THERE'S A BATTLE, SOMEBODY SAY I'M BATTLING.
  • 00:08:09.150 --> 00:08:12.000
  • - [AUDIENCE] I'M BATTLING.
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:13.070
  • - I'M GETTING READY TO PREACH BUT
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:14.150
  • I NEED TO GIVE YOU SCRIPTURE AND IT'S A LOT OF SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:16.050
  • BUT YOU NEED SOME MORE WORD.
  • 00:08:16.080 --> 00:08:18.080
  • SOME OF Y'ALL ARE EMACIATED IN THE WORD.
  • 00:08:18.110 --> 00:08:20.210
  • YOU ARE FAT ON CARNALITY BUT YOU ARE ANOREXIC IN THE WORD.
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:27.180
  • AND BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT SPIRITUAL NUTRITION,
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:31.140
  • THE ENEMY CAN JUST DO ONE THING AND YOU FALL.

  • - [AUDIENCE] WARRING.
  • 00:09:14.090 --> 00:09:15.040
  • - WARRING AGAINST THE LAW OF MY MIND,
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:16.190
  • AND BRINGING ME INTO CAPTIVITY TO THE LAW OF SIN
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:18.260
  • WHICH IS IN MY MEMBERS.
  • 00:09:18.290 --> 00:09:20.040
  • O WRETCHED MAN THAT I AM!
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:24.040
  • THIS IS PAUL.

  • TWO PARTIES WHO CANNOT COME TO AGREEMENT
  • 00:10:32.020 --> 00:10:37.180

  • BY FORCE OVER THE OTHER
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:58.240
  • TO ESTABLISH THEIR VERSION OF REALITY.
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:02.220
  • THE ENEMY WANTS YOU TO BELIEVE THAT THE THINGS
  • 00:11:02.250 --> 00:11:06.270

  • I CAN'T SEEM TO GET VICTORY OVER.
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:34.000
  • I'VE BEEN PRAYING OVER THAT THING
  • 00:15:34.030 --> 00:15:35.120
  • AND BATTLING IN THAT THING AND WARRING IN THAT THING
  • 00:15:35.150 --> 00:15:38.070

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:04.030
  • THERE'S A COUPLE REASONS WHY I'M SITTING IN THIS CHAIR.
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:06.160
  • NUMBER ONE, I'M OLD. THAT'S NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:10.200
  • NUMBER TWO IS, I BELIEVE I'M SUPPOSED
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:13.020
  • TO SEE YOU Y'ALL DO MORE THAN ME.
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:16.060
  • WHICH MEANS, NORMALLY, FOR THOSE WHO'VE NEVER HEARD ME,
  • 00:16:16.090 --> 00:16:18.260
  • I'M KIND OF DEMONSTRATIVE AND I JUMP UP AND DOWN
  • 00:16:18.290 --> 00:16:21.060
  • AND I'M YELLING, AND I STILL MIGHT DO THAT
  • 00:16:21.090 --> 00:16:23.180
  • 10 MINUTES FROM NOW BUT I NEED Y'ALL
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:26.070
  • TO TAKE THIS THING AND GET A LITTLE MORE EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT.
  • 00:16:26.100 --> 00:16:30.180
  • A LITTLE MORE RADICAL ABOUT IT.
  • 00:16:30.210 --> 00:16:33.120
  • SO I'M GON TAKE MY SEAT BECAUSE I BELIEVE
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:35.180
  • I'M HERE TO UNLOCK SOME FOLK TONIGHT.
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:38.120
  • BECAUSE SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN BATTLING

  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:44.280
  • LET'S JUST RELAX MAN, WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF TIME,
  • 00:16:45.010 --> 00:16:47.040
  • LET'S JUST GO SLOW.

  • WITH ALL OF THESE GLOBAL CONFLICTS?
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:58.240
  • YOU HAVEN'T READ MATTHEW 24, DO YOU REALIZE

  • THAT THE LAST DAYS ARE UNFOLDING IN YOUR GENERATION?
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:06.080
  • YOU THINK WHAT'S HAPPENING IS BY CHANCE?
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:09.040
  • Y'ALL RUNNING AROUND SCREAMING
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:10.230
  • TRYING TO BE BACK IN THE 60S LIKE THIS IS A POLITICAL MOVE,
  • 00:17:10.260 --> 00:17:14.110
  • THIS AIN'T ABOUT POLITICS, THIS IS SPIRITUAL!
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:17.020
  • EVERYTHING HAPPENING IS SPIRITUAL!
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:19.270

  • 00:26:43.260 --> 00:26:46.000
  • YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE
  • 00:26:46.030 --> 00:26:47.290
  • BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:26:48.020 --> 00:26:50.280
  • BEGIN TO SEE YOURSELF AS ALREADY POSSESSING THE VICTORY,
  • 00:26:51.010 --> 00:26:54.100
  • PARTICULARLY IN THE STUBBORN AREAS
  • 00:26:54.130 --> 00:26:56.290
  • WHERE YOU KNOW YOU NEED TO SEE CHANGE.
  • 00:26:57.020 --> 00:27:00.080
  • CONFESS IT. THANK GOD FOR THE ANSWER.
  • 00:27:00.110 --> 00:27:03.020
  • WHY? BECAUSE FAITH IN CHRIST IS YOUR VICTORY
  • 00:27:03.050 --> 00:27:06.160
  • THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD.
  • 00:27:06.190 --> 00:27:09.010
  • SO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR COPY OF THE "STAND STRONG" SERIES.
  • 00:27:09.040 --> 00:27:13.040
  • I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARING EVEN MORE WITH YOU
  • 00:27:13.070 --> 00:27:15.210
  • RIGHT HERE NEXT TIME ON JOHN GRAY'S WORLD.
  • 00:27:15.240 --> 00:27:19.130
  • BUT UNTIL THEN, I LOVE YOU, KEEP GOING,
  • 00:27:19.160 --> 00:27:22.090
  • AND GOD BLESS YOU.
