  • - I want to talk
  • 00:00:19.160 --> 00:00:20.030
  • to you for a few moments
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:20.290
  • tonight on something
  • 00:00:20.290 --> 00:00:21.270
  • a little bit different.
  • 00:00:21.270 --> 00:00:23.120
  • For me, in a conference
  • 00:00:23.120 --> 00:00:24.170
  • like this,
  • 00:00:24.170 --> 00:00:25.090
  • I've done a lot of these,
  • 00:00:25.090 --> 00:00:26.140
  • and our conference
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.200
  • and other conferences
  • 00:00:27.200 --> 00:00:29.060
  • like this, and I know
  • 00:00:29.060 --> 00:00:32.030
  • what I'm supposed to do,
  • 00:00:32.260 --> 00:00:35.260
  • but also know
  • 00:00:35.260 --> 00:00:36.180
  • when God deals with me
  • 00:00:36.180 --> 00:00:37.200
  • in an unusual way
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:38.290
  • and He has about this service.
  • 00:00:39.200 --> 00:00:42.200
  • I believe that the price
  • 00:00:43.150 --> 00:00:46.150
  • for a full life is mistakes.
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:50.010
  • Mistakes are the price
  • 00:00:50.010 --> 00:00:51.160
  • for a full life
  • 00:00:51.160 --> 00:00:52.170
  • that you have to pay
  • 00:00:52.170 --> 00:00:54.080
  • if you learn from them.
  • 00:00:54.270 --> 00:00:57.270
  • I believe that hell
  • 00:00:57.270 --> 00:00:58.280
  • wants to maim you
  • 00:00:59.050 --> 00:01:02.070
  • and mock you with your mistakes,
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:06.040
  • but heaven wants to make you
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:08.100
  • and transform you
  • 00:01:08.100 --> 00:01:10.120
  • by your mistakes.
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:13.100
  • Failure should not become
  • 00:01:13.100 --> 00:01:15.010
  • a prison house
  • 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:16.270
  • where you're held hostage
  • 00:01:16.270 --> 00:01:18.160
  • the rest of your life
  • 00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:19.240
  • by your mistakes.
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:21.260
  • That's not God's voice.
  • 00:01:21.260 --> 00:01:23.150
  • That's not God's will.
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:24.270
  • That's not God's plan for you,
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:26.260
  • and I'm not naïve.
  • 00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:29.260
  • My wife who is here
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:31.060
  • whom I love more
  • 00:01:31.060 --> 00:01:32.110
  • than anything in this world,
  • 00:01:32.110 --> 00:01:35.010
  • my five children,
  • 00:01:35.010 --> 00:01:36.090
  • my three grandchildren
  • 00:01:36.090 --> 00:01:39.060
  • and growing...
  • 00:01:42.030 --> 00:01:45.030
  • and I can't help
  • 00:01:45.030 --> 00:01:46.060
  • but understand that the enemy
  • 00:01:46.060 --> 00:01:48.280
  • wants us to think
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:50.220
  • that our failure is final
  • 00:01:50.220 --> 00:01:52.270
  • because I've seen us
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:54.090
  • go through things
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:55.030
  • where the enemy tried
  • 00:01:55.030 --> 00:01:56.170
  • to take us out by a failure
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:02:00.190
  • or a mistake
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:01.200
  • or a terrible choice.
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:06.060
  • I want you to understand
  • 00:02:06.060 --> 00:02:07.050
  • that your mistakes - -
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:08.060
  • and this is what
  • 00:02:08.060 --> 00:02:08.220
  • I'm preaching on.
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:09.270
  • If you need a sermon title,
  • 00:02:09.270 --> 00:02:10.240
  • this is it,
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:12.010
  • "Your Mistakes Are Not Final.
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:14.200
  • Your Failure Is Not Final."
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:18.270
  • Rejoice not over me,
  • 00:02:18.270 --> 00:02:20.100
  • all my enemies.
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:22.050
  • For when I fall,
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:24.000
  • I will rise again.
  • 00:02:24.000 --> 00:02:26.010
  • When I sit in darkness,
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:28.080
  • the light will come.
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:30.150
  • Take a moment and praise God
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:31.270
  • for that amazing truth.
  • 00:02:31.270 --> 00:02:34.060
  • I want somebody
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:39.130
  • to hear me clearly.
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:40.100
  • You might have made a mistake,
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.130
  • but you're not one.
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:44.230
  • You might have failed,
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:46.060
  • but you're not a failure.
  • 00:02:46.060 --> 00:02:49.010
  • You might be down,
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:50.030
  • but down is not your destiny.
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:52.220
  • There is a resurrection
  • 00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:53.270
  • coming to your dream,
  • 00:02:53.270 --> 00:02:55.290
  • to your life, to your call,
  • 00:02:55.290 --> 00:02:57.210
  • to your purpose,
  • 00:02:57.210 --> 00:02:58.250
  • and here's what
  • 00:02:58.250 --> 00:03:01.010
  • I really feel like saying.
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:02.220
  • I'm just going to go on
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:03.200
  • Because the truth is
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:09.200
  • sitting among us
  • 00:03:09.230 --> 00:03:12.230
  • are young men and young women
  • 00:03:12.230 --> 00:03:15.090
  • who were here last Forward,
  • 00:03:16.130 --> 00:03:19.130
  • and between now and then,
  • 00:03:19.130 --> 00:03:21.090
  • you've fallen.
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:23.170
  • You've messed up.
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:26.010
  • You did something.
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:27.270
  • You wanted it.
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:28.270
  • You had to have it.
  • 00:03:28.270 --> 00:03:29.280
  • You had to try it,
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:31.150
  • and you did it.
  • 00:03:32.080 --> 00:03:35.080
  • You experimented
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:36.040
  • with drugs and alcohol,
  • 00:03:36.040 --> 00:03:38.210
  • and now you're addicted.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:41.270
  • You had to try,
  • 00:03:42.040 --> 00:03:45.040
  • and now you've lost your purity
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:47.150
  • or your virginity,
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:50.090
  • and the enemy,
  • 00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:51.090
  • if you could go back,
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:52.210
  • you would give anything
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:54.060
  • to go back and change
  • 00:03:54.060 --> 00:03:55.260
  • that night or that place
  • 00:03:55.260 --> 00:03:57.260
  • or that situation
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:03:58.270
  • that changed everything
  • 00:03:58.270 --> 00:04:01.080
  • in your life.
  • 00:04:01.080 --> 00:04:03.110
  • I feel for this generation
  • 00:04:03.110 --> 00:04:05.080
  • because when I was coming up,
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:06.220
  • you know pretty much
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:08.030
  • if we stayed away from sin,
  • 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:09.220
  • sin for the most part --
  • 00:04:09.220 --> 00:04:11.230
  • I mean, we were
  • 00:04:11.230 --> 00:04:12.240
  • always tempted.
  • 00:04:12.240 --> 00:04:13.140
  • We were flesh.
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:14.070
  • We had all.
  • 00:04:14.070 --> 00:04:15.070
  • But it's different
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:16.170
  • for your generation
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:17.200
  • because if we stayed away
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:19.060
  • from sin, sin basically
  • 00:04:19.060 --> 00:04:20.200
  • didn't bother us.
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:22.240
  • I mean,
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:24.040
  • if you wanted pornography,
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:25.040
  • you had to go to a 7-11.
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:27.180
  • You had to go to the guy
  • 00:04:27.180 --> 00:04:28.140
  • at the counter.
  • 00:04:28.140 --> 00:04:29.230
  • You had to tell him
  • 00:04:29.230 --> 00:04:30.180
  • you want some porn
  • 00:04:30.180 --> 00:04:31.140
  • in front of a bunch of people
  • 00:04:31.140 --> 00:04:33.240
  • while they're all
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:34.080
  • waiting in line.
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:35.050
  • They would all look
  • 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:36.040
  • at you like you were a perv,
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:39.210
  • and then he would go back
  • 00:04:39.210 --> 00:04:40.270
  • to a back shelf
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:42.070
  • that was only behind
  • 00:04:42.070 --> 00:04:43.180
  • the counter,
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:45.050
  • and he would get you
  • 00:04:45.050 --> 00:04:45.240
  • a porno magazine,
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:47.150
  • and then before
  • 00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:48.250
  • he would give it to you,
  • 00:04:48.250 --> 00:04:49.240
  • he would say,
  • 00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:50.130
  • "How old are you?"
  • 00:04:50.130 --> 00:04:53.100
  • But this generation
  • 00:04:53.100 --> 00:04:54.120
  • doesn't have that.
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:55.230
  • Sin has become
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:04:56.290
  • brazen and bold.
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:04:58.260
  • Sin is stalking you.
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:05:00.290
  • Sin is after you.
  • 00:05:00.290 --> 00:05:02.230
  • I feel for you.
  • 00:05:02.230 --> 00:05:04.050
  • I'm not here to throw stones.
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:05.230
  • I'm not here to cut you down
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:07.100
  • because the truth is
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:09.130
  • 68% of all men,
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:13.230
  • according to
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:14.150
  • the latest statistic,
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:15.120
  • look at porn
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:16.090
  • at least once a week.
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:19.120
  • 18% of all women
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:21.170
  • look at porn once a week.
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:24.080
  • One out of every five searches
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:26.230
  • on the web is porn related.
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:30.230
  • So, is that what we're going
  • 00:05:30.230 --> 00:05:31.180
  • to talk about?
  • 00:05:31.180 --> 00:05:32.290
  • No, that's not what we're going
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:34.090
  • to talk about.
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:36.050
  • Righteousness is not
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:37.150
  • permission to sin,
  • 00:05:37.150 --> 00:05:40.030
  • but righteousness is permission
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:43.140
  • to come back home.
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:45.050
  • You might have fallen,
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:46.120
  • and you might have failed,
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:47.220
  • and you might have made
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:48.180
  • a mistake,
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:49.170
  • but you are not a mistake,
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.210
  • and God will never define you
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:54.010
  • by the worst mistake
  • 00:05:54.010 --> 00:05:56.040
  • and choice you made in life.
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:58.100
  • Critics will,
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:05:59.090
  • attackers will,
  • 00:05:59.090 --> 00:06:01.030
  • haters will,
  • 00:06:01.030 --> 00:06:02.110
  • people will,
  • 00:06:02.110 --> 00:06:03.090
  • but God will never define you
  • 00:06:03.110 --> 00:06:06.110
  • by your worst mistake,
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:09.000
  • and I need you to thank Him,
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.120
  • that great is His mercy
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:13.250
  • towards us.
  • 00:06:13.250 --> 00:06:15.080
  • If you love Him,
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.020
  • praise Him just a minute,
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.050
  • I love the story
  • 00:06:24.240 --> 00:06:25.130
  • of Simon Peter.
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:28.010
  • I love the fact that God
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:30.060
  • loved Him after He messed up.
  • 00:06:30.290 --> 00:06:33.290
  • That's why when the angel
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.010
  • appeared at the tomb,
  • 00:06:35.010 --> 00:06:36.120
  • the angel said,
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:38.290
  • "Jesus wants me
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:40.240
  • to specifically name
  • 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:42.120
  • one of the disciples by name."
  • 00:06:42.120 --> 00:06:44.200
  • He said, "Go tell my disciples
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:47.090
  • and Simon Peter to meet me
  • 00:06:48.030 --> 00:06:51.030
  • in the Upper Room."
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:53.240
  • The same guy who denied Christ.
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:56.160
  • The same guy who lied.
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:59.000
  • The same guy who cut a man
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:07:01.110
  • and got violent.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:02.180
  • The same guy who failed
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:04.050
  • and failed miserably.
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:06.260
  • He said, "You tell my disciples,
  • 00:07:06.260 --> 00:07:08.240
  • and you tell Peter."
  • 00:07:08.240 --> 00:07:10.240
  • He named him specifically,
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:12.230
  • I believe,
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:13.110
  • because He wanted
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:14.070
  • His critics to hear,
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:15.240
  • "I do believe
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:17.150
  • in my good disciples,
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:18.180
  • but I also still believe
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:20.020
  • in my fallen disciples,
  • 00:07:20.020 --> 00:07:21.280
  • and I'm here
  • 00:07:21.280 --> 00:07:22.120
  • to preach to some people
  • 00:07:22.120 --> 00:07:23.160
  • who've messed up and the enemies
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:25.080
  • told you your call is over,
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:27.100
  • your dream is shredded,
  • 00:07:27.100 --> 00:07:30.020
  • you don't have any hope,
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.120
  • you don't have any future,
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:32.230
  • but God brought you
  • 00:07:32.230 --> 00:07:33.170
  • to this conference
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:34.070
  • just to let you know
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:36.120
  • that there is restoration
  • 00:07:36.170 --> 00:07:39.170
  • available for you,
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:41.120
  • and He still
  • 00:07:41.120 --> 00:07:42.060
  • has His hand on your life.
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:44.090
  • Take a praise break
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:45.090
  • and thank Him.
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:46.020
  • I'll keep moving.
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:47.030
  • Isn't it something
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:50.200
  • that it was Simon Peter
  • 00:07:50.200 --> 00:07:52.270
  • who preached
  • 00:07:52.270 --> 00:07:53.190
  • on the day of Pentecost.
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:54.240
  • He didn't choose the other 11.
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:56.130
  • He chose the one
  • 00:07:56.130 --> 00:07:57.200
  • who messed up.
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:08:01.230
  • There's a guy in Acts 20
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:03.060
  • called Eutychus,
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:05.090
  • and while he was preaching,
  • 00:08:05.090 --> 00:08:07.020
  • this guy was
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:07.180
  • in the third balcony,
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:09.260
  • and he was sitting
  • 00:08:09.260 --> 00:08:11.030
  • in the window,
  • 00:08:11.030 --> 00:08:12.180
  • and he had, in other words,
  • 00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:14.260
  • straddling the window,
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:15.160
  • and he had one foot outside
  • 00:08:15.160 --> 00:08:18.060
  • and one foot in the church,
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:21.060
  • and he fell asleep
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:23.000
  • and fell out of the church
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:25.070
  • and fell down three stories,
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:27.050
  • and everybody said,
  • 00:08:27.050 --> 00:08:28.180
  • "He's dead."
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:30.150
  • They sent some ushers
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:32.220
  • to scrape his body up
  • 00:08:32.220 --> 00:08:34.130
  • and go bury him, but I love
  • 00:08:34.130 --> 00:08:36.160
  • the story of the apostle Paul.
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:37.250
  • The Bible said
  • 00:08:37.250 --> 00:08:38.180
  • he left the church service
  • 00:08:38.180 --> 00:08:40.150
  • where he was preaching
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:41.260
  • and ran to that man
  • 00:08:41.260 --> 00:08:43.210
  • named Eutychus.
  • 00:08:43.210 --> 00:08:44.120
  • Do you know why his name
  • 00:08:44.120 --> 00:08:45.060
  • was Eutychus?
  • 00:08:45.060 --> 00:08:46.100
  • 'Cause you'd cuss too
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:47.160
  • if you'd have fallen
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:48.090
  • all the way out of the window.
  • 00:08:48.090 --> 00:08:49.180
  • You'd cuss over --
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:53.090
  • But he fell
  • 00:08:53.090 --> 00:08:54.000
  • all the way down,
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:54.290
  • and they were ready to scrape
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.260
  • him up and throw him away
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:58.130
  • and say he's worthless.
  • 00:08:58.130 --> 00:09:00.050
  • He was in church.
  • 00:09:00.050 --> 00:09:01.040
  • Serves him well.
  • 00:09:01.040 --> 00:09:02.100
  • He shouldn't have been
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:03.050
  • half in and half out.
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:04.170
  • Let's just mark him off.
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:05.280
  • He knew better.
  • 00:09:05.280 --> 00:09:06.230
  • He got it.
  • 00:09:06.230 --> 00:09:07.290
  • Listen, you might have got
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:09.060
  • what you wanted,
  • 00:09:09.060 --> 00:09:10.010
  • but you don't have to keep
  • 00:09:10.010 --> 00:09:11.070
  • what you've got.
  • 00:09:11.070 --> 00:09:12.210
  • You serve a God who says,
  • 00:09:12.210 --> 00:09:14.030
  • "I make all things new."
  • 00:09:14.090 --> 00:09:17.090
  • Come on and shout with me.
  • 00:09:17.090 --> 00:09:18.210
  • Just a minute.
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:20.140
  • [Applause]
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:22.170
  • Praise Him just a minute.
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:23.200
  • I feel something
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:24.140
  • stirring in here.
  • 00:09:24.140 --> 00:09:25.230
  • Just praise Him just a minute.
  • 00:09:25.230 --> 00:09:28.100
  • [Applause]
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:30.060
  • I love what Paul said.
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:31.090
  • The Bible said Paul fell on him
  • 00:09:31.090 --> 00:09:33.200
  • and he held him,
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:34.130
  • and he said these words,
  • 00:09:34.130 --> 00:09:35.140
  • "There's still life in him."
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:39.070
  • And that's what I've come
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:40.260
  • to prophesy
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:41.120
  • and preach to tonight
  • 00:09:41.120 --> 00:09:42.200
  • that some of you have fallen.
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:44.000
  • Some of you did it.
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:45.110
  • Some of you messed up,
  • 00:09:45.110 --> 00:09:46.150
  • but the Lord sent me to tell you
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:48.190
  • there's still life
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:49.160
  • in your dream.
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:51.010
  • There's still life
  • 00:09:51.010 --> 00:09:51.250
  • in your call.
  • 00:09:51.250 --> 00:09:53.030
  • There's still life
  • 00:09:53.030 --> 00:09:54.180
  • in your purpose.
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:55.190
  • There's still life
  • 00:09:55.190 --> 00:09:56.190
  • in what God
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:09:57.150
  • His name is Steve Wynn.
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:08.080
  • He is a billionaire,
  • 00:10:08.080 --> 00:10:10.100
  • according to "Forbes" magazine.
  • 00:10:11.110 --> 00:10:14.110
  • He lives in Las Vegas, Nevada,
  • 00:10:14.110 --> 00:10:16.110
  • and he has made
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:19.170
  • just billions of dollars
  • 00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:20.120
  • off casinos that he owns
  • 00:10:20.120 --> 00:10:21.270
  • and hotels.
  • 00:10:21.270 --> 00:10:23.010
  • He's most famous as a builder,
  • 00:10:24.000 --> 00:10:27.000
  • but I want to tell you something
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:28.000
  • that happened to him
  • 00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:29.060
  • that I think speaks
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:30.170
  • to your life tonight.
  • 00:10:30.170 --> 00:10:33.090
  • In 2001, he's a lover of art,
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:39.040
  • and he bought a painting
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:43.160
  • for $50 million.
  • 00:10:43.260 --> 00:10:46.260
  • This paint is called
  • 00:10:46.260 --> 00:10:47.280
  • "La Reve" which in French
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:52.230
  • is "the dream",
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:54.170
  • and that's a picture of it.
  • 00:10:54.170 --> 00:10:57.070
  • He paid $50 million
  • 00:10:57.080 --> 00:11:00.100
  • because it was painted
  • 00:11:00.100 --> 00:11:01.160
  • in 1932 by a man
  • 00:11:01.160 --> 00:11:04.020
  • by the name of Pablo Picasso,
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:10.010
  • and he paid $50 million
  • 00:11:10.080 --> 00:11:13.080
  • for that painting.
  • 00:11:13.080 --> 00:11:14.180
  • $50 million, y'all.
  • 00:11:14.250 --> 00:11:17.250
  • Not because he's just
  • 00:11:17.250 --> 00:11:19.180
  • an art collector.
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:21.000
  • He loved that painting
  • 00:11:21.000 --> 00:11:22.240
  • because it was called
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:24.010
  • "The Dream",
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:25.150
  • and it meant something
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:26.120
  • emotionally to him
  • 00:11:26.120 --> 00:11:28.000
  • because he said
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:29.050
  • when I started I had nothing
  • 00:11:29.050 --> 00:11:30.110
  • but a dream to build
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:32.160
  • and to do something
  • 00:11:32.160 --> 00:11:33.020
  • with my life,
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:33.260
  • and that painting,
  • 00:11:33.260 --> 00:11:35.140
  • I've always wanted to own it,
  • 00:11:35.140 --> 00:11:37.260
  • and when he got it,
  • 00:11:37.260 --> 00:11:38.250
  • he bought it for $50 million.
  • 00:11:38.250 --> 00:11:40.190
  • He held onto it for five years.
  • 00:11:40.190 --> 00:11:43.170
  • He would put it in the lobbies
  • 00:11:43.170 --> 00:11:45.140
  • of his expensive hotels
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:46.100
  • in Vegas,
  • 00:11:46.100 --> 00:11:46.290
  • and the customers
  • 00:11:46.290 --> 00:11:49.050
  • and the people
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:49.220
  • who were there gambling
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:50.190
  • or going to shows
  • 00:11:50.190 --> 00:11:51.150
  • or just traveling
  • 00:11:51.150 --> 00:11:53.010
  • and doing stuff,
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:54.090
  • they would get
  • 00:11:54.090 --> 00:11:54.230
  • to see "The Dream"
  • 00:11:54.230 --> 00:11:57.230
  • in person by Picasso.
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:02.010
  • And something happened.
  • 00:12:02.010 --> 00:12:04.080
  • Just five years later,
  • 00:12:04.080 --> 00:12:06.150
  • even though he loved
  • 00:12:06.150 --> 00:12:07.090
  • "The Dream",
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:09.110
  • he had a chance
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:09.260
  • to get two other paintings
  • 00:12:09.260 --> 00:12:11.130
  • that he had always
  • 00:12:11.130 --> 00:12:12.110
  • wanted to own,
  • 00:12:12.110 --> 00:12:14.020
  • and a man from New York City
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:17.000
  • who was an investment banker
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:18.130
  • named Cohen, Mr. Cohen,
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:20.160
  • called him and said
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:21.190
  • I want to own the dream,
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:23.120
  • and I will buy it from you,
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:25.030
  • and they got to negotiating,
  • 00:12:25.030 --> 00:12:26.140
  • and he said I'll buy it
  • 00:12:26.140 --> 00:12:28.200
  • for $139 million.
  • 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:31.180
  • Five years later,
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:33.060
  • he made - -
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:34.030
  • what is that,
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:34.160
  • 80-something million dollars,
  • 00:12:35.250 --> 00:12:38.250
  • $89 million
  • 00:12:39.200 --> 00:12:42.200
  • off of this painting.
  • 00:12:42.200 --> 00:12:44.090
  • And so, Steve Wynn
  • 00:12:44.090 --> 00:12:46.070
  • because he so was emotionally

  • attached to this painting,
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:52.030
  • Steve Wynn said I'm going
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:53.200
  • to have a party
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:54.180
  • before they take "The Dream"
  • 00:12:54.180 --> 00:12:56.280
  • to New York City
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:57.230
  • from Las Vegas.
  • 00:12:57.230 --> 00:12:59.030
  • And they all came to the hotel
  • 00:12:59.030 --> 00:13:01.110
  • where he was throwing
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:02.180
  • this big party,
  • 00:13:02.180 --> 00:13:03.220
  • and everybody's having
  • 00:13:03.220 --> 00:13:04.160
  • a good time.
  • 00:13:04.160 --> 00:13:05.080
  • True story.
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:06.110
  • Steve Wynn gets up,
  • 00:13:06.110 --> 00:13:09.070
  • and he has an eye disease,
  • 00:13:09.070 --> 00:13:11.020
  • and he has problems seeing.
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:13.220
  • So, he can't really measure
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:15.100
  • distance well.
  • 00:13:15.100 --> 00:13:16.220
  • And that night
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:17.050
  • to celebrate "The Dream",
  • 00:13:17.050 --> 00:13:20.010
  • he had it on an easel
  • 00:13:20.010 --> 00:13:21.130
  • beside him, this painting,
  • 00:13:21.210 --> 00:13:24.210
  • and he got to talking,
  • 00:13:24.210 --> 00:13:27.000
  • and he moves his arms a lot,
  • 00:13:27.000 --> 00:13:29.100
  • and as he was talking
  • 00:13:29.100 --> 00:13:30.160
  • in front of some
  • 00:13:30.160 --> 00:13:31.050
  • of the most famous
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:32.050
  • and wealthy people
  • 00:13:32.050 --> 00:13:33.020
  • in the world,
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.100
  • he accidentally lost
  • 00:13:34.100 --> 00:13:36.120
  • his equilibrium.
  • 00:13:36.120 --> 00:13:37.250
  • He began to stumble,
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:39.050
  • and when he did,
  • 00:13:39.050 --> 00:13:39.290
  • he fell back
  • 00:13:39.290 --> 00:13:40.280
  • and to catch himself,
  • 00:13:40.280 --> 00:13:42.080
  • his arm went against
  • 00:13:42.080 --> 00:13:44.110
  • the painting
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:45.170
  • that was on the easel,
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:46.220
  • and he ripped his arm
  • 00:13:46.220 --> 00:13:48.140
  • right through
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:50.100
  • $139 million dream,
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:55.050
  • and "The Dream" was torn.
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:59.020
  • "The Dream" was ripped.
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:02.190
  • "The Dream" was destroyed.
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:08.250
  • People could not believe
  • 00:14:08.250 --> 00:14:10.220
  • their eyes.
  • 00:14:10.220 --> 00:14:13.080
  • He got on the phone,
  • 00:14:13.080 --> 00:14:14.060
  • and he called the man
  • 00:14:14.060 --> 00:14:15.150
  • in New York City,
  • 00:14:15.150 --> 00:14:18.010
  • and he said, "I am so sorry.
  • 00:14:18.060 --> 00:14:21.060
  • "The Dream" has been destroyed.
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:23.020
  • I had an accident.
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:24.020
  • I don't know
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:24.190
  • how I could have done it.
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:25.280
  • I don't know
  • 00:14:25.280 --> 00:14:26.130
  • it could be how I fell.
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:27.270
  • I don't understand.
  • 00:14:27.270 --> 00:14:28.270
  • I couldn't catch myself,
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:30.160
  • and I messed "The Dream" up
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:32.210
  • as I was falling.
  • 00:14:35.050 --> 00:14:38.050
  • But he said
  • 00:14:38.050 --> 00:14:38.170
  • to that New York investor,
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:41.210
  • "Don't worry.
  • 00:14:41.210 --> 00:14:43.180
  • I want to buy it
  • 00:14:43.180 --> 00:14:44.080
  • back from you.
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:46.180
  • I will pay you what you paid me,
  • 00:14:47.170 --> 00:14:50.170
  • $139 million.
  • 00:14:50.170 --> 00:14:52.250
  • That must not get
  • 00:14:52.250 --> 00:14:54.110
  • in anybody's hands,
  • 00:14:54.110 --> 00:14:55.270
  • and you can't just take it now
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:57.230
  • and because
  • 00:14:57.230 --> 00:14:58.150
  • it's been damaged
  • 00:14:58.150 --> 00:14:59.110
  • and put it in some back
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:00.230
  • closet somewhere.
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:02.070
  • I want that in my hands
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:04.250
  • because I'm not just
  • 00:15:04.250 --> 00:15:06.090
  • an art collector,"
  • 00:15:06.090 --> 00:15:07.160
  • Steve Wynn said,
  • 00:15:07.160 --> 00:15:08.190
  • "I am an art lover,
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:10.260
  • and I must have it,
  • 00:15:10.260 --> 00:15:12.070
  • and I will lose $89 million
  • 00:15:14.110 --> 00:15:17.110
  • if you will let me take
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:19.210
  • the damaged "Dream".
  • 00:15:20.160 --> 00:15:23.160
  • True story.
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:25.090
  • Took it.
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:27.120
  • The guy, Mr. Cohen,
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:29.110
  • said, "You're crazy,
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:31.000
  • but I'll give you
  • 00:15:31.000 --> 00:15:31.160
  • the torn painting.
  • 00:15:31.160 --> 00:15:33.020
  • You just lost tens
  • 00:15:33.020 --> 00:15:34.080
  • of millions of dollars."
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:35.210
  • True story.
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:37.290
  • Steve Wynn
  • 00:15:37.290 --> 00:15:38.280
  • because of his love
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:39.260
  • for that painting
  • 00:15:39.260 --> 00:15:42.040
  • began to search the whole world
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:45.250
  • to find what's called
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:46.250
  • an art surgeon
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:49.000
  • or an art restorer
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:51.100
  • and when he found it,
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:53.290
  • he found a man in Europe.
  • 00:15:53.290 --> 00:15:55.230
  • He flew him over,
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:57.020
  • and the man began to look.
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:15:58.150
  • He looked at the torn "Dream".
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:16:00.150
  • He looked at the painting
  • 00:16:00.150 --> 00:16:01.260
  • that had been destroyed
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:02.230
  • called "The Dream",
  • 00:16:02.230 --> 00:16:03.250
  • and he made this final analysis.
  • 00:16:03.250 --> 00:16:06.240
  • He said, "I can fix it.
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:11.020
  • As a matter of fact,
  • 00:16:11.020 --> 00:16:12.160
  • when I get through with it
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:14.010
  • from the front nobody
  • 00:16:14.010 --> 00:16:15.220
  • will be able
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:16.280
  • to even tell
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:18.080
  • that it's ever been damaged
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:20.210
  • before because I see it.
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:22.200
  • I see how I can do it.
  • 00:16:22.200 --> 00:16:24.000
  • It's going to take me
  • 00:16:24.000 --> 00:16:25.020
  • at least a year.
  • 00:16:25.020 --> 00:16:26.090
  • It's going to take some time.
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:28.010
  • It's not going to be instant.
  • 00:16:28.010 --> 00:16:29.270
  • It's not going to be quick."
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:31.140
  • The word restoration
  • 00:16:31.140 --> 00:16:32.200
  • doesn't just have restore in it.
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:34.200
  • It has rest in it
  • 00:16:34.200 --> 00:16:36.270
  • because if God
  • 00:16:36.270 --> 00:16:37.250
  • is really going to restore
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:38.260
  • your life after your dreams
  • 00:16:38.260 --> 00:16:40.130
  • have been torn to pieces,
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:42.010
  • you've got to give Him
  • 00:16:42.010 --> 00:16:42.290
  • a little time.
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:43.290
  • You've got to give Him moments
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:45.190
  • like you're giving Him
  • 00:16:45.190 --> 00:16:46.210
  • this weekend,
  • 00:16:46.210 --> 00:16:48.070
  • and little by little,
  • 00:16:48.070 --> 00:16:48.290
  • He begins to piece
  • 00:16:48.290 --> 00:16:50.020
  • your life back together,
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.180
  • and you may not be all
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:52.250
  • that you want to be yet,
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:54.020
  • but you just wait --
  • 00:16:54.020 --> 00:16:56.040
  • If you put what you've got left
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:59.090
  • into the nail-scarred
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:00.280
  • hands of Jesus --
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:02.200
  • Don't put it
  • 00:17:02.200 --> 00:17:03.100
  • in anybody's hands.
  • 00:17:03.100 --> 00:17:04.280
  • Put the broken,
  • 00:17:04.280 --> 00:17:06.150
  • torn dream in Jesus's hands.
  • 00:17:10.010 --> 00:17:13.010
  • And he said, now from the front,
  • 00:17:14.020 --> 00:17:17.020
  • and sure enough one year later
  • 00:17:17.260 --> 00:17:20.260
  • he brought it back
  • 00:17:21.000 --> 00:17:24.000
  • and even the greatest
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:25.020
  • art inspectors in the world
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:28.070
  • came and looked at the painting
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:31.280
  • called "The Dream"
  • 00:17:31.280 --> 00:17:33.070
  • after it had been restored,
  • 00:17:33.070 --> 00:17:36.070
  • and they all agreed
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:38.200
  • it's perfect.
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:40.110
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:41.090
  • So, if you looked at it,
  • 00:17:41.090 --> 00:17:43.230
  • what everybody saw out front
  • 00:17:45.000 --> 00:17:48.000
  • looked like
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:48.090
  • it had never been through
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:50.150
  • what it had been through,
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:52.220
  • but he did tell Steve Wynn,
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:55.010
  • however, if you turn it around,
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:59.110
  • it's going to be ugly.
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:18:01.230
  • It's going to have repair work
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:03.260
  • and restoration work,
  • 00:18:03.260 --> 00:18:05.170
  • and people will see this,
  • 00:18:05.170 --> 00:18:07.250
  • but those who know
  • 00:18:07.250 --> 00:18:08.180
  • the real story
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:09.280
  • will know that the reason
  • 00:18:09.280 --> 00:18:11.050
  • it looks like this out front
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:13.000
  • is because it's been restored
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:15.010
  • on the inside,
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:17.020
  • from the inside out.
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:19.030
  • [Applause]
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:20.150
  • I don't know who I'm preaching
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:21.170
  • to tonight,
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:22.170
  • but I feel like the Lord
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:23.210
  • is saying when I get
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:25.040
  • through with you,
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:25.280
  • you're not going to look like
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:27.170
  • what you've been through.
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:29.000
  • You're not going
  • 00:18:29.000 --> 00:18:29.190
  • to look like abuse.
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:31.100
  • You're not going to look
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:32.010
  • like a failure.
  • 00:18:32.010 --> 00:18:33.190
  • You're not going
  • 00:18:33.190 --> 00:18:34.040
  • to look like a mistake.
  • 00:18:34.040 --> 00:18:35.140
  • You're not going to look like
  • 00:18:35.140 --> 00:18:36.130
  • There's a lot of us in ministry.
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:46.130
  • People look at my family.
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:48.240
  • I've got a gorgeous wife,
  • 00:18:48.240 --> 00:18:49.270
  • I've got beautiful children,
  • 00:18:49.270 --> 00:18:51.160
  • and this is what you see
  • 00:18:51.160 --> 00:18:53.010
  • when we stand up here,
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:55.040
  • but if you want to see
  • 00:18:55.040 --> 00:18:55.260
  • the real picture of the Franklin
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:57.110
  • family, there it is,
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:19:01.020
  • but out of the mistakes
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:02.150
  • comes ministry,
  • 00:19:02.150 --> 00:19:04.010
  • and out of the pain
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:04.280
  • comes anointing,
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:06.060
  • and out of the ashes
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:08.280
  • comes beauty.
  • 00:19:08.280 --> 00:19:11.140
  • Don't say you want God
  • 00:19:11.140 --> 00:19:12.200
  • to use you
  • 00:19:12.200 --> 00:19:13.160
  • if you're not willing
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:14.140
  • to go through this,
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:15.210
  • you ought to see the scars
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:17.100
  • on Jesus's body.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:18.280
  • Oh, His name is beautiful.
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:21.130
  • Oh, this is beautiful,
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:23.050
  • but you ought to see
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:24.170
  • what He paid and what He went
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:26.140
  • But, "He was wounded
  • 00:19:31.230 --> 00:19:32.180
  • for your transgressions.
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:35.020
  • He was bruised
  • 00:19:35.020 --> 00:19:36.080
  • for you inequities.
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:37.080
  • The chastisement
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:38.240
  • of your peace was upon Him,
  • 00:19:40.280 --> 00:19:43.280
  • and by His stripes
  • 00:19:45.050 --> 00:19:48.050
  • you are healed."
  • 00:19:48.050 --> 00:19:50.140
  • You are whole.
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:52.180
  • You are restored.
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:55.110
  • God is saying
  • 00:19:55.110 --> 00:19:56.100
  • I still have plans
  • 00:19:56.100 --> 00:19:58.130
  • for your life,
  • 00:19:58.130 --> 00:20:01.070
  • and they'll see this,
  • 00:20:01.070 --> 00:20:03.280
  • but because of what
  • 00:20:03.280 --> 00:20:05.050
  • you've been through,
  • 00:20:05.190 --> 00:20:08.190
  • you'll learn to praise me
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:09.220
  • in your pain.
  • 00:20:09.220 --> 00:20:12.170
  • Anybody can praise Him
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:13.150
  • when you're on top
  • 00:20:13.150 --> 00:20:14.060
  • of everything.
  • 00:20:14.060 --> 00:20:15.040
  • Anybody can praise Him
  • 00:20:15.040 --> 00:20:16.050
  • when everything is perfect,
  • 00:20:16.050 --> 00:20:17.290
  • but when you learn
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:19.010
  • to praise God
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:20.180
  • when your life
  • 00:20:20.180 --> 00:20:21.000
  • looks like this,
  • 00:20:21.000 --> 00:20:22.020
  • I promise you,
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:23.140
  • He'll turn your weeping
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:25.000
  • into dancing,
  • 00:20:25.000 --> 00:20:26.220
  • and He'll restore the dream,
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:29.130
  • and here's the best part
  • 00:20:29.130 --> 00:20:31.100
  • of this little sermon.
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:32.160
  • I'm done, but this is it.
  • 00:20:32.160 --> 00:20:35.090
  • You're not going
  • 00:20:35.090 --> 00:20:35.230
  • to believe this,
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:37.000
  • so check it out
  • 00:20:37.000 --> 00:20:37.210
  • when the service is over
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:38.170
  • The same guy
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:45.230
  • in New York City
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:48.070
  • called Steve Wynn
  • 00:20:48.070 --> 00:20:49.220
  • a year later, and he said,
  • 00:20:49.220 --> 00:20:51.210
  • "I've seen and I've heard
  • 00:20:51.260 --> 00:20:54.260
  • and I want that painting.
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:58.040
  • I told you I'd pay $139 million,
  • 00:20:58.220 --> 00:21:01.240
  • but that was before
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:02.220
  • it was torn,
  • 00:21:02.220 --> 00:21:04.220
  • but now that it's been restored,
  • 00:21:04.220 --> 00:21:06.180
  • I'm willing
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:07.180
  • to go to $155 million.
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:10.020
  • It's worth more after
  • 00:21:10.020 --> 00:21:11.240
  • it's been through the tearing
  • 00:21:11.240 --> 00:21:13.100
  • and after it's been through
  • 00:21:13.100 --> 00:21:14.280
  • the pain and after
  • 00:21:14.280 --> 00:21:16.010
  • it's been through
  • 00:21:16.010 --> 00:21:17.060
  • the mistakes and after
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:18.150
  • it's been through the failure.
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:21.120
  • After the dream has been torn,
  • 00:21:21.120 --> 00:21:23.090
  • if it comes back,
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:25.000
  • if it will get back up,
  • 00:21:25.000 --> 00:21:27.150
  • if it will let Jesus restore it,
  • 00:21:27.150 --> 00:21:30.020
  • it will only increase,
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:33.130
  • not decrease,
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:35.040
  • in value.
  • 00:21:35.040 --> 00:21:36.270
  • Wow!
  • 00:21:36.270 --> 00:21:39.220
  • Do you understand
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:40.070
  • what I'm telling you?
  • 00:21:40.070 --> 00:21:42.110
  • Let me close with this verse.
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:44.020
  • It's in Proverbs.
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:46.120
  • A righteous man,
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:48.150
  • a righteous woman.
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:49.230
  • Here's the definition
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:50.120
  • of righteousness.
  • 00:21:50.120 --> 00:21:52.130
  • A righteous man
  • 00:21:52.130 --> 00:21:55.010
  • falls seven times a day.
  • 00:21:55.200 --> 00:21:58.200
  • Righteousness is not determined
  • 00:21:58.200 --> 00:22:00.060
  • by how many times you fall.
  • 00:22:00.060 --> 00:22:02.170
  • The rest of the verse goes on
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:04.010
  • and says but rises again.
  • 00:22:05.010 --> 00:22:08.010
  • Righteousness is determined
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:09.070
  • after you had the failure,
  • 00:22:09.070 --> 00:22:11.230
  • do you get back up,
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:13.130
  • do you turn it into praise,
  • 00:22:13.130 --> 00:22:15.060
  • do you turn your pain
  • 00:22:15.060 --> 00:22:16.120
  • into praise?
  • 00:22:16.120 --> 00:22:18.010
  • Because if you will,
  • 00:22:18.010 --> 00:22:19.060
  • He will restore you,
  • 00:22:19.060 --> 00:22:21.070
  • and out of your ashes
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:23.070
  • will come beauty again.
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:24.250
  • I promise you.
  • 00:22:24.250 --> 00:22:26.020
  • I don't know when.
  • 00:22:26.020 --> 00:22:27.040
  • It might take a little time,
  • 00:22:27.040 --> 00:22:28.260
  • but out of the ugly thing
  • 00:22:28.260 --> 00:22:31.120
  • - I believe the Lord has sent
  • 00:22:41.190 --> 00:22:42.270
  • me to tell you today
  • 00:22:42.270 --> 00:22:44.050
  • that your failure is not final.
  • 00:22:44.050 --> 00:22:46.170
  • Some of you, who have been
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:48.160
  • through a broken marriage,
  • 00:22:48.160 --> 00:22:50.160
  • or some terrible addiction
  • 00:22:50.160 --> 00:22:53.020
  • and the situation in your life
  • 00:22:53.020 --> 00:22:54.210
  • has just ripped you to pieces.
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:56.160
  • Today, if you are ready
  • 00:22:56.160 --> 00:22:58.270
  • to get right with God,
  • 00:22:58.270 --> 00:23:01.050
  • if you feel far from Him,
  • 00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:03.030
  • and it seems like your dreams
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:04.140
  • have been torn to pieces,
  • 00:23:04.140 --> 00:23:06.170
  • I want you here today to just
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:08.080
  • make a decision to take up
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:10.150
  • your cross and follow Jesus,
  • 00:23:10.150 --> 00:23:12.100
  • and put your broken dreams
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:14.180
  • in the hands of the one
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:16.180
  • who can heal and restore.
  • 00:23:16.180 --> 00:23:18.290
  • Wherever you are watching
  • 00:23:18.290 --> 00:23:19.270
  • this program,
  • 00:23:19.270 --> 00:23:20.270
  • pray with me right now.
  • 00:23:20.270 --> 00:23:22.250
  • Say, "Lord, Jesus."
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:24.140
  • Just say these words,
  • 00:23:24.140 --> 00:23:25.190
  • "Lord, Jesus, I call on you.
  • 00:23:25.210 --> 00:23:28.210
  • You are the one who can take
  • 00:23:28.210 --> 00:23:30.190
  • the broken pieces and make
  • 00:23:30.190 --> 00:23:32.120
  • something beautiful out
  • 00:23:32.120 --> 00:23:33.190
  • of my life.
  • 00:23:33.190 --> 00:23:34.270
  • I surrender to you, Jesus."
  • 00:23:34.270 --> 00:23:36.260
  • Lord, I pray for every person
  • 00:23:36.260 --> 00:23:38.210
  • who just prayed that prayer,
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:40.020
  • every person watching who's
  • 00:23:40.020 --> 00:23:41.270
  • family or life in some way
  • 00:23:41.270 --> 00:23:43.240
  • has been shredded.
  • 00:23:43.240 --> 00:23:45.080
  • May the power of restoration
  • 00:23:45.080 --> 00:23:47.170
  • and healing flow to those lives,
  • 00:23:47.170 --> 00:23:49.250
  • homes, and situations
  • 00:23:49.250 --> 00:23:51.270
  • - There was a 14 year old girl
  • 00:23:56.190 --> 00:23:59.060
  • who's grandmother was struggling
  • 00:23:59.060 --> 00:24:01.020
  • with her because she was
  • 00:24:01.020 --> 00:24:02.140
  • being very rebellious.
  • 00:24:02.140 --> 00:24:04.230
  • She began to talk to me about
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:06.220
  • how at her age, age 14,
  • 00:24:07.130 --> 00:24:10.130
  • she had learned how to be
  • 00:24:10.130 --> 00:24:12.220
  • shot up, using a needle,
  • 00:24:12.220 --> 00:24:14.200
  • with meth.
  • 00:24:14.200 --> 00:24:15.290
  • By an older man.
  • 00:24:15.290 --> 00:24:17.190
  • - So, I'm Nikki,
  • 00:24:23.020 --> 00:24:24.110
  • and I'm 14 years old.
  • 00:24:24.110 --> 00:24:26.120
  • Before, life was not easy.
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:29.110
  • I started smoking when I was
  • 00:24:29.110 --> 00:24:31.090
  • six yeas old.
  • 00:24:31.090 --> 00:24:32.210
  • What lead to my addiction was
  • 00:24:32.210 --> 00:24:33.230
  • my mom was never there,
  • 00:24:33.230 --> 00:24:35.140
  • neither was my dad.
  • 00:24:35.140 --> 00:24:36.150
  • He denied me.
  • 00:24:36.150 --> 00:24:37.210
  • My brother god adopted out,
  • 00:24:37.210 --> 00:24:39.160
  • and after smoking when
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:42.020
  • I was nine or ten,
  • 00:24:42.020 --> 00:24:43.100
  • I started hanging out
  • 00:24:43.100 --> 00:24:44.170
  • with the wrong group of people
  • 00:24:44.170 --> 00:24:46.000
  • and I was doing acid.
  • 00:24:46.150 --> 00:24:49.150
  • Your parents are supposed
  • 00:24:49.150 --> 00:24:50.170
  • to be your biggest supporters,
  • 00:24:50.170 --> 00:24:52.190
  • and my parents weren't there.
  • 00:24:52.190 --> 00:24:55.140
  • A couple months before I got
  • 00:24:55.140 --> 00:24:56.150
  • here, I lost my best friend.
  • 00:24:56.150 --> 00:24:58.240
  • Which lead me to trying meth,
  • 00:24:59.080 --> 00:25:02.100
  • and then December 2,
  • 00:25:02.100 --> 00:25:04.260

  • 00:25:06.040 --> 00:25:09.040
  • The Holy Spirit just touched me.
  • 00:25:09.060 --> 00:25:12.060
  • I can't explain,
  • 00:25:12.060 --> 00:25:14.220
  • I just now, I have this joy.
  • 00:25:15.000 --> 00:25:18.000
  • I work with these kids over here
  • 00:25:18.000 --> 00:25:20.110
  • it's just a big blessing.
  • 00:25:20.110 --> 00:25:21.230
