  • A LOT OF CHRISTIANS
  • 00:01:13.080 --> 00:01:14.080
  • DON'T SEEM TO REALIZE
  • 00:01:14.080 --> 00:01:15.120
  • WE'RE IN A SPIRITUAL BATTLE;
  • 00:01:15.120 --> 00:01:16.160
  • OF ALL THE BATTLES,
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:17.190
  • THE INVISIBLE WORLD
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:19.040
  • INFLUENCES THE VISIBLE,
  • 00:01:19.040 --> 00:01:20.270
  • MORE POWERFULLY, PROFOUNDLY,
  • 00:01:20.270 --> 00:01:22.140
  • EFFECTIVELY AND NEGATIVELY
  • 00:01:22.140 --> 00:01:24.040
  • IN MANY WAYS THAN ANY FORCE
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:25.190
  • IN THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:27.280
  • PEOPLE SEEM TO BE
  • 00:01:27.280 --> 00:01:29.100
  • A STRANGER TO IT.

  • AND IT IS POWERFUL!
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:36.160
  • DR. JEREMIAH DID
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:37.200
  • A PHENOMENAL JOB;
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:39.020
  • THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE
  • 00:01:39.020 --> 00:01:41.050
  • ANSWER BOOK .
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:42.090
  • INDEED IT IS!
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:43.130
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:44.190
  • DR. DAVID JEREMIAH
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:45.200
  • BACK TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:01:45.200 --> 00:01:46.220
  • DOC, I'M GLAD TO SEE YOU.
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:47.220
  • I'M GOING TO TELL YOU,
  • 00:01:47.220 --> 00:01:48.260
  • YOU'RE LOOKING
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:50.020
  • AT AN EVANGELIST
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:51.040
  • THAT WAS PRETTY EFFECTIVE
  • 00:01:51.040 --> 00:01:52.090
  • AND DEFINITELY OPERATED
  • 00:01:52.090 --> 00:01:53.150
  • IN THE GIFTING OF GOD
  • 00:01:53.150 --> 00:01:55.190
  • BUT I'M GOING TO TELL YOU,
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:56.240
  • I REACHED A POINT IN MY LIFE
  • 00:01:56.240 --> 00:01:58.190
  • THAT I WAS TORMENTED.
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:02:00.150
  • IN SO MANY WAYS
  • 00:02:00.150 --> 00:02:02.020
  • REALLY DECEIVED
  • 00:02:02.020 --> 00:02:03.190
  • AND DISTRACTED BY THE ENEMY
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:06.180
  • AND IT WAS AS THOUGH
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:07.280
  • I LAID IT ALL ON MYSELF
  • 00:02:07.280 --> 00:02:10.100
  • AS THOUGH THERE
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:11.130
  • MUST BE SOMETHING
  • 00:02:11.130 --> 00:02:12.150
  • VERY INSIGNIFICANTLY WRONG.
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:13.170
  • I WAS FATHERLESS AND HAD
  • 00:02:13.170 --> 00:02:14.200
  • SOME PROBLEMS AS A KID,
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:15.250
  • FACED SOME CHALLENGES
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:17.200
  • AND I COULD LAY THE BLAME.
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:18.220
  • BUT I CAME TO FIND OUT
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:21.210
  • THAT I WAS UNDER ASSAULT,
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:23.050
  • JUST LIKE WHEN JESUS SAID,
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:24.140
  • "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM.
  • 00:02:24.140 --> 00:02:25.200
  • THEY DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:25.200 --> 00:02:26.250
  • WHAT THEY WERE DOING."
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:27.290
  • EVERYBODY COULD SAY
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:29.010
  • THEY KNEW EXACTLY
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:30.020
  • WHAT THEY WERE DOING.
  • 00:02:30.020 --> 00:02:31.090
  • THEY SPIT ON YOU.
  • 00:02:31.090 --> 00:02:32.140
  • THEY CRUCIFIED YOU.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:33.140
  • THEY SPIKED YOU.
  • 00:02:33.140 --> 00:02:34.150
  • THEY SPEARED YOU.
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:35.160
  • THEY HATED YOU.
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:36.200
  • BUT JESUS SAID
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:37.250
  • THEY WERE UNDER THE CONTROL
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:38.290
  • OF ANOTHER DECEIVING FORCE
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:40.030
  • AND A FATHER
  • 00:02:40.030 --> 00:02:41.100
  • WHO IS A MURDERER
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:42.150
  • AND THE FATHER OF LIES.
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:44.080
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:02:44.080 --> 00:02:45.110
  • THIS SPIRITUAL REALITY
  • 00:02:45.110 --> 00:02:46.160
  • SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IGNORED
  • 00:02:46.160 --> 00:02:47.200
  • BY JAMES ROBISON.
  • 00:02:47.200 --> 00:02:48.260
  • I WAS ACTUALLY UNDER
  • 00:02:48.260 --> 00:02:50.030
  • THE SAME KIND OF ASSAULT
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:51.080
  • AND DECEPTION, I'M AFRAID,
  • 00:02:51.080 --> 00:02:53.020
  • MANY CHRISTIANS
  • 00:02:53.020 --> 00:02:54.070
  • ARE UNDER TODAY.
  • 00:02:54.070 --> 00:02:55.140
  • AND AS A RESULT,
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:57.000
  • THEY'RE RENDERED INEFFECTIVE
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:58.110
  • IN THEIR WITNESS
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:02:59.160
  • AND THEY JUST KIND OF LIVE
  • 00:02:59.160 --> 00:03:00.200
  • COWED DOWN AND DEFEATED
  • 00:03:00.200 --> 00:03:02.000
  • AND THEIR TESTIMONY,
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:03.040
  • THEIR COUNTENANCE
  • 00:03:03.040 --> 00:03:04.100
  • TESTIFIES AGAINST THEM.
  • 00:03:04.100 --> 00:03:05.140
  • DO YOU AGREE THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:06.150
  • ACTUALLY SEE THIS REALITY
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:07.210
  • AMONG FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:09.000
  • WHO HAVE ACTUALLY HAVE
  • 00:03:09.000 --> 00:03:10.040
  • COME TO KNOW THE LORD
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:11.070
  • BUT THEY'RE DEFEATED?
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:12.090
  • IF DEMONIC REALITY IS JUST
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:18.240
  • MY QUESTION IS
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:21.200
  • WHAT DID JESUS CAST OUT
  • 00:03:21.200 --> 00:03:22.240
  • OF PEOPLE?
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:23.240
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:03:23.240 --> 00:03:24.260
  • HE CAST DEMONS OUT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:24.260 --> 00:03:26.120
  • THAT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:27.190
  • THAT JESUS DID
  • 00:03:27.190 --> 00:03:28.240
  • AND HIS DISCIPLES
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:29.260
  • WEREN'T ABLE TO DO IT
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:30.260
  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:03:30.260 --> 00:03:31.280
  • HAVE ENOUGH FAITH.
  • 00:03:31.280 --> 00:03:33.000
  • JESUS DID IT.
  • 00:03:33.000 --> 00:03:34.050
  • HE SHOWED HIS POWER
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:35.080
  • OVER SATAN.
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:36.190
  • I CAN PROMISE YOU
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:37.280
  • THERE WAS NO DISCUSSION
  • 00:03:37.280 --> 00:03:39.250
  • DURING JESUS' TIME
  • 00:03:39.250 --> 00:03:41.020
  • ON THIS EARTH
  • 00:03:41.020 --> 00:03:42.050
  • ABOUT THE REALITY OF DEMONS.
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.100
  • THEY WERE CERTAINLY
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:45.240
  • VERY EVIDENT
  • 00:03:45.240 --> 00:03:46.290
  • IN WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:48.040
  • James: DO YOU THINK
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:49.090
  • CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN TAUGHT
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:50.140
  • TO IGNORE THEM
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:51.190
  • AND IN FACT THEY SHOULDN'T?
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:52.280
  • David: I THINK
  • 00:03:52.280 --> 00:03:54.030
  • THE GREATEST TRAGEDY TODAY
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:55.080
  • IN THIS WHOLE REALM
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:56.130
  • IS THAT CHRISTIANS
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:03:57.180
  • DON'T BELIEVE.
  • 00:03:57.180 --> 00:03:58.230
  • THEY'VE BEEN TOLD,
  • 00:03:58.230 --> 00:03:59.280
  • AND RIGHTLY SO, THAT DEMONS
  • 00:03:59.280 --> 00:04:01.090
  • CANNOT POSSESS A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:04:01.090 --> 00:04:03.270
  • BUT THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:04:03.270 --> 00:04:05.040
  • THAT DEMONS CAN OBSESS
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:06.280
  • A CHRISTIAN AND CREATE
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:08.200
  • GREAT, GREAT DIFFICULTY.
  • 00:04:08.200 --> 00:04:11.070
  • James: THEY CAN HARASS THEM
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:12.160
  • AND BECOME A BITTER SPIRIT.
  • 00:04:13.210 --> 00:04:15.170
  • THEY CAN LEAD PEOPLE
  • 00:04:15.170 --> 00:04:16.270
  • INTO A SPIRIT OF HARLOTRY
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:18.290
  • OR A SPIRIT OF LUST.
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:20.120
  • TO PEOPLE
  • 00:04:21.210 --> 00:04:22.240
  • WHERE THOSE SPIRITS
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:23.270
  • ARE AFFECTING THEM.
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:25.030
  • David: HERE'S THE PROBLEM
  • 00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:26.050
  • WE ALL HAVE IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:27.090
  • I KNOW SOME GUYS,
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.100
  • AND YOU DO TOO, WHO SEE
  • 00:04:28.100 --> 00:04:29.140
  • A DEMON BEHIND EVERY ROCK
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:30.170
  • AND EVERYTHING THAT'S WRONG
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.190
  • IN THEIR LIFE
  • 00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:32.250
  • THEY ASSIGN IT TO A DEMON.
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:33.270
  • SOME THINGS AREN'T DEMONS;
  • 00:04:33.270 --> 00:04:35.000
  • THEY'RE JUST WICKEDNESS
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:36.040
  • ON THE PART OF THE PERSON
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.080
  • OR DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:38.120
  • BUT TO SAY THAT IS NOT
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:39.190
  • TO DISCOUNT THE FACT
  • 00:04:39.190 --> 00:04:40.200
  • THAT SATAN IS ALIVE AND WELL
  • 00:04:40.200 --> 00:04:42.060
  • AND HE IS DOING HIS BEST WORK
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:45.010
  • THAT HE'S EVER DONE
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:46.070
  • IN THIS CULTURE TODAY.
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:47.140
  • HERE'S AN ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:04:47.140 --> 00:04:48.200
  • WE TALKED ABOUT THIS EARLIER.
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:49.280
  • PEOPLE ASK ME ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:04:49.280 --> 00:04:51.070
  • "WHAT IS YOUR TAKE
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:52.110
  • ON WHAT'S HAPPENING
  • 00:04:52.110 --> 00:04:53.150
  • WITH ALL OF THESE SHOOTINGS
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.180
  • AND ALL OF THESE KILLINGS
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:55.240
  • AND POLICEMEN BEING SHOT
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:57.190
  • AND POLICEMEN
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:04:58.270
  • SHOOTING PEOPLE?"
  • 00:04:58.270 --> 00:05:00.030
  • THERE'S ONE COMMON THING
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:01.050
  • IN ALL OF THIS
  • 00:05:01.050 --> 00:05:02.060
  • IS THAT IT IS SATANIC.
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:03.130
  • I DON'T MEAN THAT
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:04.170
  • THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:05.200
  • ARE NECESSARILY
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:06.240
  • KNOWLEDGEABLY SERVING SATAN
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:08.130
  • BUT SATAN IS BEHIND IT
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:09.280
  • BECAUSE HE IS THE MURDERER --
  • 00:05:09.280 --> 00:05:11.200
  • HE IS THE GREAT MURDERER.
  • 00:05:11.200 --> 00:05:13.160
  • HE HAS SEVERAL STRATEGIES
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:15.000
  • THAT HE USES;
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:16.070
  • AND HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS,
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:17.120
  • HE'S NEVER CHANGED THEM.
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:18.260
  • THE SAME STRATEGY HE USED
  • 00:05:18.260 --> 00:05:20.150
  • TO TEMPT ADAM AND EVE
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:21.280
  • IN THE GARDEN
  • 00:05:21.280 --> 00:05:23.070
  • IS THE SAME STRATEGY
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:24.110
  • HE USED TO TEMPT JESUS
  • 00:05:24.110 --> 00:05:25.170
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:26.220
  • AND THE SAME STRATEGY
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:28.000
  • HE USES AGAINST US TODAY.
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:29.060
  • HE IS A DECEIVER.
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:30.130
  • HE IS A DESTROYER.
  • 00:05:30.130 --> 00:05:31.250
  • AND HE WILL DO ANYTHING HE CAN
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:34.200
  • TO UNDERCUT THE TRUTH:
  • 00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:36.250
  • AND HE IS A MURDERER.
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:40.140
  • WHEN YOU SEE LYING
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:41.190
  • AND MURDERING GOING ON
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:42.270
  • RAMPANTLY LIKE IT IS TODAY
  • 00:05:42.270 --> 00:05:44.220
  • THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON
  • 00:05:44.220 --> 00:05:46.000
  • THE ENEMY OF OUR SOULS.
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:48.130
  • IN THAT FIRST CHAPTER
  • 00:05:50.170 --> 00:05:51.220
  • OF ROMANS WHEN HE TALKED
  • 00:05:51.220 --> 00:05:52.290
  • ABOUT MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:05:52.290 --> 00:05:54.040
  • WAITING FOR JUDGMENT.
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:05:55.040
  • HE SAYS THE WRATH OF GOD
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:56.080
  • AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS.
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:05:58.230
  • IN THAT
  • 00:05:58.230 --> 00:06:00.020
  • WHEN YOU KNOW THE TRUTH
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:01.160
  • THEN YOU DON'T ACCEPT IT
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:03.180
  • AND GLORIFY GOD, THE GOD,
  • 00:06:03.180 --> 00:06:05.210
  • THE CREATOR, THE FATHER.
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:07.060
  • BUT YOU BEGIN TO WORSHIP
  • 00:06:07.060 --> 00:06:08.120
  • SOMETHING CREATED,
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:09.200
  • SOMETHING OTHER THAN GOD
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:11.020
  • AND THEN YOU BEGIN
  • 00:06:11.020 --> 00:06:13.050
  • TO CHANGE GOD'S TRUTH;
  • 00:06:13.050 --> 00:06:14.270
  • YOU CAST IT ASIDE
  • 00:06:14.270 --> 00:06:16.050
  • AND BELIEVE A LIE.
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:17.140
  • AND YOU'RE GIVEN OVER
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:18.220
  • TO ALL OF THESE LET'S SAY
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:20.140
  • WHAT PEOPLE WOULD SAY
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:21.240
  • ADDICTIVE PRACTICES,
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:23.030
  • COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOR
  • 00:06:23.030 --> 00:06:24.130
  • THAT EVEN MOVES BEYOND
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:25.230
  • NATURE'S LAW, NATURE'S GOD,
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:27.150
  • AGAINST NATURE.
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:28.260
  • PEOPLE BURNING IN THEIR LUST
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:30.010
  • ONE FOR THE OTHER,
  • 00:06:30.010 --> 00:06:31.080
  • EVEN OPPOSITE SEX,
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:32.100
  • SAME SEX ATTRACTION;
  • 00:06:32.100 --> 00:06:33.190
  • THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:06:33.190 --> 00:06:34.240
  • YOU WOULD NEVER IMAGINE.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:35.270
  • BUT THEN IT MOVES ON TO TALK
  • 00:06:35.270 --> 00:06:37.050
  • ABOUT ALL THE DESCRIPTIONS
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:38.090
  • OF WICKEDNESS AND ALL
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:39.090
  • OF THOSE CHARACTERISTICS,
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:40.130
  • AND INDICATING THAT
  • 00:06:40.130 --> 00:06:42.040
  • YOU CAN'T EVEN DETERMINE
  • 00:06:42.040 --> 00:06:43.140
  • RIGHT FROM WRONG.
  • 00:06:43.140 --> 00:06:44.230
  • SO SOMETHING IS HAPPENING
  • 00:06:44.230 --> 00:06:45.260
  • IN THIS PROCESS THAT
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:46.270
  • I BELIEVE IS ORCHESTRATED
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:48.000
  • BY THE POWERS OF DARKNESS
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:49.000
  • AND DECEPTION
  • 00:06:49.000 --> 00:06:50.060
  • AND THAT'S WHAT YOU POINT OUT.
  • 00:06:50.060 --> 00:06:51.170
  • ONCE YOU REACH THAT PLACE
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:52.270
  • THAT A NATION IS DECEIVED
  • 00:06:52.270 --> 00:06:54.180
  • OR PEOPLE ARE DECEIVED
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:55.230
  • THEN YOU SEE
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:57.020
  • ALL THE HORRIBLE PRACTICES,
  • 00:06:57.020 --> 00:06:58.090
  • AND PEOPLE DO NOT
  • 00:06:58.090 --> 00:06:59.150
  • RESIST IT ANYMORE,
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:00.230
  • THEY ACTUALLY GIVE
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:02.050
  • WHOLEHEARTED APPROVAL TO THIS
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:04.040
  • OUT-OF-CONTROL LIFESTYLE
  • 00:07:04.040 --> 00:07:05.250
  • AND THIS DESPICABLE BEHAVIOR
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:07.240
  • THAT THEY TRY TO JUSTIFY WHEN
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:09.050
  • THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION.
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:10.190
  • SO THAT IS A PROCESS
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:12.160
  • THAT THE FATHER OF LIES
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:14.070
  • IS ORCHESTRATING.
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:15.260
  • AND IF WE DON'T RESIST THAT
  • 00:07:15.260 --> 00:07:17.170
  • IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM
  • 00:07:17.170 --> 00:07:18.280
  • BY PUTTING ON AN ARMOR OF GOD,
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:20.090
  • NOT TO GO FIGHT PEOPLE
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.200
  • BUT TO QUENCH THE FIERY DARTS
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:23.170
  • OF THE ENEMY, THE SUGGESTIONS;
  • 00:07:23.170 --> 00:07:26.000
  • IS THAT WHAT YOU SEE
  • 00:07:26.000 --> 00:07:27.130
  • CHRISTIANS NOT DOING,
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:28.200
  • SUITING UP TO STAND AGAINST
  • 00:07:28.200 --> 00:07:29.250
  • THESE FORCES OF EVIL
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:31.190
  • THAT ARE COMING AT ALL OF US
  • 00:07:31.190 --> 00:07:32.290
  • IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:34.020
  • David: DO WE EVEN STOP
  • 00:07:34.020 --> 00:07:35.060
  • MANY TIMES, JAMES, TO ASK
  • 00:07:35.060 --> 00:07:36.070
  • WHERE DOES THIS COME FROM?
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:37.100
  • FOR INSTANCE, IN THE
  • 00:07:37.100 --> 00:07:38.140
  • NEW TESTAMENT JESUS SAYS,
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:41.100
  • "AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
  • 00:07:41.100 --> 00:07:43.010
  • SO SHALL IT BE IN THE
  • 00:07:43.010 --> 00:07:44.100
  • COMING OF THE SON OF MAN."
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:45.130
  • THEN YOU GO BACK TO THE BOOK
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:46.170
  • OF GENESIS AND IT SAYS,
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:47.210
  • "IN NOAH'S DAY THE THOUGHTS
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:50.070
  • OF EVERY MAN'S HEART
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:51.260
  • WAS ALWAYS EVIL CONTINUALLY."
  • 00:07:51.260 --> 00:07:54.250
  • IS THAT NOT
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:56.090
  • AN APT DESCRIPTION
  • 00:07:56.090 --> 00:07:57.170
  • OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED WITH
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:58.210
  • PORNOGRAPHY IN OUR NATION?
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:07:59.250
  • AND SO I JUST READ
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:01.180
  • THE STATISTICS OF PORNOGRAPHY
  • 00:08:01.180 --> 00:08:03.210
  • FOR LAST YEAR AND WHEN YOU
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.200
  • READ THEM YOU DON'T EVEN WANT
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:07.010
  • TO SHARE THEM WITH ANYBODY
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:08.100
  • BECAUSE YOU DON'T THINK
  • 00:08:08.100 --> 00:08:09.180
  • ANYBODY WILL BELIEVE THEM.
  • 00:08:09.180 --> 00:08:10.200
  • THEY'RE SO OVERWHELMING.
  • 00:08:10.200 --> 00:08:11.230
  • EVIL HAS TAKEN OVER
  • 00:08:11.230 --> 00:08:12.240
  • IN OUR CULTURE.
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:13.250
  • THEN EVERYBODY SAYS,
  • 00:08:13.250 --> 00:08:16.020
  • WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?
  • 00:08:16.020 --> 00:08:17.080
  • IT CAME FROM SATAN.
  • 00:08:17.080 --> 00:08:18.190
  • SATAN IS THE ONE BEHIND IT.
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:19.260
  • TO HATE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:22.030
  • THAT ARE TRAPPED BY IT
  • 00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:23.070
  • WE NEED TO HELP THEM
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:24.110
  • GET FREE FROM IT.
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:25.120
  • A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:08:25.120 --> 00:08:26.160
  • WHAT THEY'RE STRUGGLING WITH
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:28.270
  • FOR FEAR SOMEBODY IS GOING
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.000
  • TO PUT THEM DOWN RATHER
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:31.070
  • THAN HELP SET THEM FREE.
  • 00:08:31.070 --> 00:08:32.150
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS CAME TO DO
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:33.150
  • IS SET ANY CAPTIVE FREE,
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:34.170
  • ANY DEFEATED PERSON.
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:35.170
  • David: AND WE NEED TO
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:36.190
  • KEEP SAYING TO ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:08:36.190 --> 00:08:37.220
  • THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD."
  • 00:08:38.270 --> 00:08:39.260
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO BOW DOWN
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:41.000
  • AND BE DEFEATED OVER THIS.
  • 00:08:41.000 --> 00:08:42.040
  • WE JUST HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:08:42.040 --> 00:08:43.080
  • THAT GOD HAS CALLED US
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:44.090
  • AND SATAN WILL FLEE FROM US
  • 00:08:45.140 --> 00:08:47.130
  • AND WE ARE TO WRESTLE NOT
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:48.240
  • AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:50.140
  • BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:51.250
  • AND POWERS.
  • 00:08:51.250 --> 00:08:53.030
  • THIS IS A SPIRITUAL MATTER.
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:08:54.080
  • THIS IS A MATTER
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:55.140
  • THAT IS FOUGHT ON OUR KNEES,
  • 00:08:55.140 --> 00:08:56.250
  • A MATTER THAT IS FOUGHT
  • 00:08:56.250 --> 00:08:58.040
  • THROUGH PRAYER, PUTTING ON
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:08:59.080
  • THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD.
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:01.180
  • WE JUST DON'T HEAR MUCH
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:03.000
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:03.000 --> 00:09:04.030
  • Betty: REALLY WE'VE COME
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:05.230
  • TO A PLACE IN OUR SOCIETY
  • 00:09:05.230 --> 00:09:07.000
  • THAT WE DON'T REALLY
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:08.040
  • RECOGNIZE RIGHT OR WRONG.
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:09.210
  • IT'S WHATEVER FEELS GOOD.
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:10.290
  • I CAN DO IT. NOTHING'S WRONG.
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:13.070
  • David: BETTY, THAT IS
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:14.140
  • A VERY INTERESTING THING
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:15.180
  • BECAUSE ONCE YOU SAY
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:16.190
  • THAT THERE IS NO CREATOR GOD
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:17.220
  • YOU HAVE NOBODY TO REPORT TO.
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:19.120
  • AS SOON AS WE DECIDED
  • 00:09:19.120 --> 00:09:20.200
  • THAT GOD IS NOT THE CREATOR
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:21.280
  • BUT THAT WE CAME
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:23.080
  • INTO EXISTENCE THROUGH
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:24.140
  • SOME KIND OF EXPLOSION
  • 00:09:24.140 --> 00:09:25.180
  • THEN WHAT IS THERE TO...
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:27.030
  • THERE IS NOBODY TO REPORT TO.
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.180
  • THERE IS NOBODY
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:29.270
  • WHO IS CALLING THE SHOTS,
  • 00:09:29.270 --> 00:09:31.110
  • IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:32.140
  • James: IF YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:33.190
  • A STANDARD, AS LONG AS YOU
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:34.220
  • AND I KNOW WE'RE STRUGGLING
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:35.260
  • WITH AN ISSUE -- BY THE WAY,
  • 00:09:35.260 --> 00:09:36.260
  • ONE OF THE THINGS BETTY
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:38.000
  • AND I FOUND IN THE
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:39.030
  • SPIRITUAL WARFARE BATTLE
  • 00:09:39.030 --> 00:09:40.060
  • IS THAT WHEN YOU'RE WILLING
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.110
  • TO ADMIT I'VE GOT A STRONGHOLD
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:44.130
  • OR I'VE GOT A BATTLE
  • 00:09:44.130 --> 00:09:45.250
  • AND I'M LOSING IT
  • 00:09:45.250 --> 00:09:47.000
  • AND YOU CALL SOMEONE IN
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:48.120
  • TO AGREE WITH YOU
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:49.170
  • AND PRAY FOR YOU,
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:50.220
  • DELIVERANCE IS A REALITY.
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:51.270
  • PEOPLE CAN BE SET FREE
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:53.160
  • AND WE NEED EACH OTHER.
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:55.010
  • DON'T YOU THINK WHEN A PERSON
  • 00:09:55.010 --> 00:09:56.020
  • IS IN A STRUGGLE
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.030
  • THEY SHOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:58.050
  • SAYING TO ANOTHER BELIEVER,
  • 00:09:58.050 --> 00:09:59.070
  • "I NEED YOUR HELP, I'VE GOT
  • 00:09:59.070 --> 00:10:00.090
  • A BATTLE GOING ON HERE"
  • 00:10:00.090 --> 00:10:01.110
  • AND TALK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:02.150
  • WHETHER IT IS PORNOGRAPHY
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:03.200
  • OR SOME OTHER ADDICTION
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:04.220
  • OR SUBSTANCE ADDICTION
  • 00:10:04.220 --> 00:10:06.020
  • OR THEY'RE JUST DISTRACTED
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:07.040
  • ALL THE TIME OR THEY HAVE
  • 00:10:07.040 --> 00:10:08.060
  • A ROOT OF BITTERNESS?
  • 00:10:08.060 --> 00:10:09.240
  • DON'T YOU THINK TO COME
  • 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:10.290
  • AND CONFESS YOUR SINS
  • 00:10:10.290 --> 00:10:12.040
  • AND YOUR WEAKNESSES AND AGREE
  • 00:10:12.040 --> 00:10:13.100
  • THAT OFTENTIMES
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:14.120
  • THERE IS GREAT STRENGTH
  • 00:10:14.120 --> 00:10:15.120
  • AGAINST THE ENEMY
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:16.150
  • IN THAT COMING TOGETHER
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:17.150
  • TO PRAY WITH
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:18.210
  • AND FOR ONE ANOTHER?
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:19.240
  • David: THAT WHOLE PASSAGE
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:20.290
  • ON SPIRITUAL WARFARE ENDS
  • 00:10:20.290 --> 00:10:22.040
  • WITH THE ALL PRAYER,
  • 00:10:22.040 --> 00:10:23.170
  • PRAYING ALWAYS
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:24.210
  • WITH ALL PRAYER.
  • 00:10:24.210 --> 00:10:25.260
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:10:25.260 --> 00:10:27.010
  • IT'S THE ONLY OFFENSIVE
  • 00:10:27.010 --> 00:10:28.160
  • WEAPON IN THE WHOLE LIST.
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:29.260
  • ALL THE REST OF THEM
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:30.270
  • ARE DEFENSIVE WEAPONS
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:31.280
  • TO KEEP THINGS
  • 00:10:31.280 --> 00:10:33.020
  • FROM HAPPENING TO YOU.
  • 00:10:33.020 --> 00:10:34.040
  • BUT YOU GET TO THE END AND
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:35.060
  • IT SAYS: "AND PRAYING ALWAYS,
  • 00:10:35.060 --> 00:10:36.210
  • WITH ALL PRAYER."
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:38.020
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD USES AGAINST
  • 00:10:38.020 --> 00:10:39.180
  • THE ENEMIES IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:10:39.180 --> 00:10:41.060
  • James: AND IT REALLY WORKS.
  • 00:10:41.060 --> 00:10:42.120
  • WE'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND THAT.
  • 00:10:42.120 --> 00:10:43.140
  • David: HERE'S SOMETHING ELSE
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:44.210
  • THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DO
  • 00:10:44.210 --> 00:10:45.270
  • WHAT YOU DO AND YOU'RE
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:47.110
  • ALWAYS PUNCHING HOLES
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:48.160
  • IN THE DARKNESS WITH
  • 00:10:48.160 --> 00:10:49.230
  • THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:50.260
  • YOU'RE ASKING FOR TROUBLE.
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:52.020
  • AND IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.070
  • THAT SATAN IS AFTER YOU
  • 00:10:53.070 --> 00:10:54.100
  • AND WHAT HE'S UP TO,
  • 00:10:54.180 --> 00:10:57.180
  • YOU'RE JUST A VICTIM
  • 00:10:57.180 --> 00:10:58.260
  • ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:00.020
  • James: WELL,
  • 00:11:00.020 --> 00:11:01.060
  • THE FURY OF THE ENEMY
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:02.100
  • IS FOCUSED ON THE CHURCH
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:03.100
  • AND ON THE MESSAGE
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:04.130
  • AND THE WITNESS THAT WE'VE
  • 00:11:04.130 --> 00:11:05.150
  • BEEN LEFT HERE TO CARRY.
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:06.180
  • HE REALLY DOES.
  • 00:11:06.180 --> 00:11:07.190
  • HE'S ALREADY GOT THE CHILDREN
  • 00:11:07.190 --> 00:11:08.220
  • THAT ARE HIS,
  • 00:11:08.220 --> 00:11:09.220
  • THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL,
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:10.220
  • HE'S THEIR FATHER,
  • 00:11:10.220 --> 00:11:11.220
  • HE'S GOT THEM.
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:12.260
  • SO HIS AGENTS
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:13.280
  • AND ALL OF THESE SPIRITS
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:14.280
  • AND DISTRACTION,
  • 00:11:15.290 --> 00:11:16.290
  • THEY ARE LITERALLY
  • 00:11:16.290 --> 00:11:18.060
  • POURING OUT THEIR WRATH
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:19.090
  • AND THEIR DECEPTION
  • 00:11:19.090 --> 00:11:20.150
  • AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
  • 00:11:20.150 --> 00:11:21.190
  • OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:23.270
  • AND TOO OFTEN,
  • 00:11:23.270 --> 00:11:24.290
  • THEY SEEM TO HAVE THEIR WAY
  • 00:11:24.290 --> 00:11:26.050
  • IN THE LIVES OF BELIEVERS
  • 00:11:26.050 --> 00:11:27.080
  • RATHER THAN THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:28.140
  • SO THE ENEMY IS WORKING.
  • 00:11:28.140 --> 00:11:29.180
  • I'LL TELL YOU WHEN I'VE
  • 00:11:29.180 --> 00:11:30.240
  • DECIDED I'M GOING TO MOVE
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:31.290
  • FORWARD A LOT OF TIMES THE
  • 00:11:31.290 --> 00:11:33.040
  • ENEMY REALLY STARTS FIRING.
  • 00:11:33.040 --> 00:11:34.050
  • SO YOU NEED TO BE READY.
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:35.070
  • David: I KNOW IT.
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:37.130
  • SOMETIMES IT IS ALMOST A TEST
  • 00:11:37.130 --> 00:11:38.220
  • OF THE REALITY
  • 00:11:38.220 --> 00:11:39.290
  • OF WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
  • 00:11:39.290 --> 00:11:41.030
  • SOMETIMES WHEN YOU GET
  • 00:11:41.030 --> 00:11:42.090
  • YOU THINK I MUST BE DOING
  • 00:11:43.130 --> 00:11:44.150
  • THE RIGHT THING BECAUSE
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:45.170
  • THE ENEMY IS REALLY UPSET
  • 00:11:45.170 --> 00:11:46.180
  • WITH THIS.
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:47.210
  • James: IF YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:48.230
  • ANY RESISTANCE
  • 00:11:48.230 --> 00:11:50.000
  • YOU MIGHT QUESTION
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:51.010
  • WHAT YOU'RE HEADING OUT TO DO
  • 00:11:51.010 --> 00:11:52.040
  • AND THE CHURCH MEETS
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:11:53.100
  • WITH FURIOUS RESISTANCE.
  • 00:11:53.100 --> 00:11:54.140
  • YOU ACTUALLY, I THINK GIVE
  • 00:11:54.140 --> 00:11:55.180
  • PEOPLE SUCH CLEAR ANSWERS.
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:11:56.270
  • THIS IS BEAUTIFULLY, AND
  • 00:11:56.270 --> 00:11:58.140
  • WRITTEN WITH SUCH SIMPLICITY.
  • 00:11:58.140 --> 00:12:00.140
  • ALL RIGHT, IN THIS DAY,
  • 00:12:00.140 --> 00:12:01.170
  • YOU'VE GOT THIS INCREDIBLE
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:02.200
  • BEST-SELLING BOOK NOW
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:03.200
  • THAT'S OUT,
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:04.230
  • IS THIS THE END?
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:07.030
  • THE APOSTLES LIVED
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:08.070
  • LIKE IT WAS THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:09.180
  • IN LIGHT OF ALL TIME
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:10.230
  • THEY WERE THERE
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:11.270
  • IN THAT PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:12:11.270 --> 00:12:12.280
  • I DON'T THINK WE NEED
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:13.290
  • TO TRY TO PUT A TIME FRAME
  • 00:12:13.290 --> 00:12:15.010
  • ON THE LAST DAYS
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:16.030
  • BUT THERE IS NO QUESTION
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:17.060
  • FOR US IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:18.060
  • YOU AND I ARE OLDER
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:19.100
  • AND BETTY AND I WE'RE
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:20.120
  • ALL A LITTLE BIT OLDER,
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:21.150
  • WE'RE KIND OF IN
  • 00:12:21.150 --> 00:12:22.180
  • THE LAST DAYS OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:23.220
  • BUT IN THE LAST DAYS
  • 00:12:23.220 --> 00:12:24.260
  • THE ENEMY WILL PROBABLY
  • 00:12:24.260 --> 00:12:26.030
  • BECOME MORE FOCUSED
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.050
  • AND MORE FURIOUS AND I THINK
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:28.090
  • DEMONSTRATE HIS VILE NATURE
  • 00:12:28.090 --> 00:12:29.120
  • MORE CLEARLY TO THE WORLD.
  • 00:12:29.120 --> 00:12:30.160
  • DON'T YOU THINK
  • 00:12:30.160 --> 00:12:31.210
  • AT THE SAME TIME
  • 00:12:31.210 --> 00:12:32.280
  • THE CHURCH SHOULD BE
  • 00:12:32.280 --> 00:12:34.000
  • DEMONSTRATING MORE CLEARLY
  • 00:12:34.000 --> 00:12:35.060
  • THE NATURE OF JESUS THAN EVER
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:36.110
  • IN HISTORY WHILE THE ENEMY
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:37.180
  • IS REVEALING HIS WICKEDNESS
  • 00:12:37.180 --> 00:12:38.270
  • AND HOW AWFUL HE IS AND WE
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:40.230
  • SEE THESE DESPICABLE THINGS,
  • 00:12:40.230 --> 00:12:42.090
  • THAT'S THE NATURE
  • 00:12:42.090 --> 00:12:43.140
  • OF THE DESTROYER,
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:44.150
  • THE NATURE OF THE DECEIVER,
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:45.200
  • THE DIVIDER?
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:46.240
  • THE SPIRITUAL UNITY.
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:49.250
  • I'VE TRIED EMPHASIZING
  • 00:12:49.250 --> 00:12:51.210
  • TO OUR VIEWERS THAT IF
  • 00:12:51.210 --> 00:12:53.010
  • WE HAVE THE PERFECT FATHER,
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:54.290
  • REVEAL THE GREATNESS
  • 00:12:56.070 --> 00:12:57.250
  • OF THAT FATHER?
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.290
  • AND THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:12:58.290 --> 00:13:00.070
  • IN LOVING ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:01.110
  • AND RESISTING THE ENEMY
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:02.120
  • AND LOOKING LIKE A FAMILY
  • 00:13:02.120 --> 00:13:03.130
  • THAT REFLECTS THE FATHER?
  • 00:13:03.130 --> 00:13:05.020
  • AND A FATHERLESS WORLD
  • 00:13:05.020 --> 00:13:06.050
  • I BELIEVE
  • 00:13:06.050 --> 00:13:07.110
  • WILL BE DRAWN TO HIM.
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:08.120
  • David: AND THERE ARE
  • 00:13:08.120 --> 00:13:09.130
  • SO MANY PEOPLE TODAY, JAMES,
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:10.160
  • WHO SEE THE EMPTINESS
  • 00:13:10.160 --> 00:13:12.010
  • OF WHAT THEY'RE LIVING IN
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:14.080
  • AND THEY'RE LOOKING
  • 00:13:14.080 --> 00:13:15.150
  • FOR THE TRUTH,
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:16.210
  • THEY'RE LOOKING FOR REALITY.
  • 00:13:16.210 --> 00:13:17.240
  • THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:13:17.240 --> 00:13:19.010
  • THAT THEY'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:20.170
  • TO KNOW US BY OUR WORDS,
  • 00:13:20.170 --> 00:13:22.020
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO KNOW US
  • 00:13:22.020 --> 00:13:23.060
  • BY ALL THE STUFF THAT WE DO
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:24.290
  • THEY'RE GOING TO KNOW US
  • 00:13:24.290 --> 00:13:26.030
  • BY OUR LOVE.
  • 00:13:26.030 --> 00:13:27.080
  • I REMEMBER READING...
  • 00:13:27.080 --> 00:13:28.150
  • James: AND OUR LOVE
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:29.190
  • FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:13:29.190 --> 00:13:30.210
  • HOW ABOUT
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:31.250
  • LET'S TAKE THAT STEP.
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:33.010
  • David: AND FRANCIS SCHAEFFER
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:34.050
  • SAID THEY HAVE EVERY RIGHT
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:35.190
  • TO EVALUATE THE CHURCH,
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:36.260
  • NOT ON OUR MESSAGE
  • 00:13:36.260 --> 00:13:37.280
  • BUT ON THE WAY WE FUNCTION
  • 00:13:37.280 --> 00:13:39.090
  • WITH ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:40.100
  • DO WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER?
  • 00:13:40.100 --> 00:13:41.120
  • IF WE DON'T
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:42.120
  • THEN THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:43.170
  • WE'RE NOT LIVING...
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:44.190
  • AND HERE'S THE TIME FOR US
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:46.200
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:47.260
  • THE DARKER THE NIGHT
  • 00:13:47.260 --> 00:13:49.020
  • THE BRIGHTER THE LIGHT
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:50.040
  • AND THE CHURCH OUGHT TO BE SO
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:51.090
  • DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT TODAY
  • 00:13:51.090 --> 00:13:53.070
  • BECAUSE OF THE WORLD
  • 00:13:53.070 --> 00:13:54.110
  • IN WHICH WE LIVE.
  • 00:13:54.110 --> 00:13:55.150
  • UNFORTUNATELY,
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:56.180
  • IF WE'RE NOT CAREFUL
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:13:57.240
  • WE ALLOW THE WORLD
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:13:59.000
  • TO PULL US INTO ITS VORTEX
  • 00:13:59.000 --> 00:14:01.040
  • AND WE LOSE
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:02.080
  • OUR DISTINCTIVENESS.
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:03.130
  • WE OUGHT TO BE PRAYING
  • 00:14:03.130 --> 00:14:04.160
  • THAT GOD WILL HELP US
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:05.210
  • TO REALLY BE,
  • 00:14:05.210 --> 00:14:06.230
  • AS YOU MENTIONED EARLIER,
  • 00:14:06.230 --> 00:14:07.280
  • LIGHT AND SALT;
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:09.010
  • AND THAT'S WHO WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:14:09.010 --> 00:14:10.080
  • James: WELL, I FEEL LIKE --
  • 00:14:11.190 --> 00:14:14.130
  • AND I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:20.020
  • I'M STILL YIELDED CLAY
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:21.160
  • IN MY FATHER'S HAND
  • 00:14:21.160 --> 00:14:23.180
  • AND I WANT HIM
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:24.250
  • TO SHAPE CHRIST IN ME.
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:25.250
  • YOU TALKED ABOUT SEEING
  • 00:14:25.250 --> 00:14:26.280
  • THE FIRE IN ME SOMETIMES.
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:28.040
  • SOMETIMES IT MIGHT NOT
  • 00:14:28.040 --> 00:14:29.040
  • HAVE COME ACROSS WITH --
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:31.070
  • IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:14:31.070 --> 00:14:32.140
  • A LITTLE BIT OF ANGER.
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:33.230
  • AS I'VE GOTTEN OLDER,
  • 00:14:33.230 --> 00:14:34.250
  • YOU KNOW I'VE SAID TO YOU
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:36.030
  • IN OUR LAST ENCOUNTERS,
  • 00:14:36.030 --> 00:14:37.080
  • WHICH HAVE BEEN SEVERAL
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:38.140
  • OVER THE LAST YEARS,
  • 00:14:38.140 --> 00:14:39.170
  • I FEEL LIKE YOU'VE BECOME
  • 00:14:39.170 --> 00:14:40.210
  • MORE OF A STATESMAN NOW.
  • 00:14:40.210 --> 00:14:41.240
  • AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:14:41.240 --> 00:14:43.010
  • OF THE WHITE HAIR,
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:44.030
  • IT'S NOT EVEN
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:45.060
  • BECAUSE OF YOUR AGE,
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:46.120
  • IT IS BECAUSE OF A MAN
  • 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:47.190
  • THAT'S STILL IN GOD'S HAND
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:48.270
  • BEING SHAPED
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:50.060
  • AND BEING READY TO SPEAK
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:51.200
  • THE WAY WE NEED SOMEONE
  • 00:14:51.200 --> 00:14:52.290
  • TO SPEAK AT THIS TIME; LIKE
  • 00:14:52.290 --> 00:14:54.020
  • WHAT'S ON THE FATHER'S HEART
  • 00:14:54.020 --> 00:14:55.110
  • COMES FROM YOUR LIPS.
  • 00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:56.210
  • I'VE SAID TO YOU THAT I FEEL
  • 00:14:56.210 --> 00:14:58.010
  • LIKE I KEEP WATCHING
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:14:59.060
  • THE LORD SHAPING YOU.
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:01.270
  • I WANT TO ASK YOU,
  • 00:15:01.270 --> 00:15:03.090
  • AM I MAKING ANY PROGRESS
  • 00:15:03.090 --> 00:15:04.140
  • AS YIELDED CLAY?
  • 00:15:04.140 --> 00:15:05.150
  • David: YES, YOU ARE.
  • 00:15:05.150 --> 00:15:07.210
  • YOU'RE A LOT MORE MELLOW
  • 00:15:07.210 --> 00:15:08.280
  • THAN I USED TO REMEMBER YOU.
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:10.060
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:15:10.060 --> 00:15:13.020
  • I THINK IT WAS CHUCK SWINDOLL
  • 00:15:14.240 --> 00:15:16.020
  • I HEARD SAY THIS
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:17.050
  • THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:15:17.050 --> 00:15:18.100
  • AND I THINK
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:19.160
  • HE WAS QUOTING SOMEBODY;
  • 00:15:19.160 --> 00:15:20.220
  • TO GREATLY USE A MAN
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.040
  • HE'S GOT TO CRUSH HIM FIRST.
  • 00:15:23.040 --> 00:15:24.070
  • I ACTUALLY PRAYED
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:25.130
  • SOMETIMES, LORD,
  • 00:15:25.130 --> 00:15:26.190
  • I WANT TO BE USED GREATLY
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:27.250
  • BUT FORGET THE CRUSHING PART.
  • 00:15:27.250 --> 00:15:28.280
  • I DON'T NEED THAT.
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:30.030
  • BUT HE DOESN'T
  • 00:15:30.030 --> 00:15:31.120
  • EVER VIOLATE THAT.
  • 00:15:31.120 --> 00:15:32.210
  • YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:33.240
  • SOME THINGS,
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:34.260
  • I'VE BEEN THROUGH SOME THINGS.
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:36.020
  • I LOOK BACK AT THEM NOW
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:37.050
  • AND I REALIZE
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:38.100
  • THAT WAS GOD'S PREPARING ME
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:39.110
  • FOR THESE DAYS.
  • 00:15:39.110 --> 00:15:41.280
  • I FEEL THE SAME WAY YOU DO.
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:43.130
  • I'M OLDER THAN YOU ARE
  • 00:15:43.130 --> 00:15:44.240
  • BUT I BELIEVE
  • 00:15:44.240 --> 00:15:46.070
  • THAT GOD HAS CALLED US
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:48.120
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
  • 00:15:48.120 --> 00:15:50.020
  • I REMEMBER WHEN HE BROUGHT ME
  • 00:15:50.030 --> 00:15:53.030
  • BACK FROM CANCER,
  • 00:15:53.030 --> 00:15:54.250
  • PEOPLE ASKED ME,
  • 00:15:54.250 --> 00:15:56.050
  • "WHY ARE YOU STILL DOING
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:57.110
  • WHAT YOU'RE DOING?
  • 00:15:57.110 --> 00:15:58.150
  • YOU SHOULD BE RETIRED
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:15:59.190
  • OR WHATEVER."
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:01.010
  • I JUST TELL THEM
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:02.070
  • WHEN I WAS SAVED FROM A VERY
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:03.240
  • SERIOUS BOUT WITH CANCER,
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.080
  • I REALIZED GOD DIDN'T LET ME
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:06.220
  • STAY ALIVE ON THIS EARTH
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:07.290
  • TO GO SIT ON A BEACH.
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:09.280
  • HE LET ME STAY ALIVE
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:11.030
  • SO I COULD BE INVOLVED
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:12.190
  • IN WHAT HE IS DOING.
  • 00:16:12.190 --> 00:16:13.270
  • AND THAT IS MY WHOLE HEART.
  • 00:16:13.270 --> 00:16:15.060
  • MY WIFE, ONCE IN A WHILE,
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:16.240
  • WE HAVE THIS DISCUSSION,
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:18.020
  • AS I'M SURE YOU DO,
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:19.070
  • ABOUT RETIREMENT.
  • 00:16:19.070 --> 00:16:20.180
  • AND I TELL HER, HONEY,
  • 00:16:20.180 --> 00:16:21.260
  • I'M NOT GOING TO RETIRE
  • 00:16:21.260 --> 00:16:23.030
  • BUT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:24.060
  • LET'S JUST PRETEND
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:25.140
  • WE'RE RETIRED.
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:26.170
  • WE GO ON A LITTLE TRIP
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:27.220
  • OR SOMETHING
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:28.280
  • AND WE COME BACK
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:30.030
  • AND GO BACK TO WORK.
  • 00:16:30.030 --> 00:16:31.070

  • RIGHT NOW WE'RE TRYING
  • 00:16:39.090 --> 00:16:40.110
  • TO FEED A LOT OF HUNGRY KIDS,
  • 00:16:40.110 --> 00:16:41.220
  • 400.000 OF THEM. THAT'S A LOT!
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:44.070

  • IF THEY DON'T GET STRONGER
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:49.290
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T GET TO THEM
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:51.050
  • EARLY ENOUGH THEY END UP
  • 00:16:51.050 --> 00:16:52.080
  • IN WHAT WE CALL
  • 00:16:52.080 --> 00:16:53.120

  • AND THAT'S WHERE THEY GO
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:58.020
  • TO TRY TO STOP DEATH THAT
  • 00:16:58.020 --> 00:16:59.290
  • IS RIGHT THERE AT THE DOOR.
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:01.200
  • LOVE WILL TURN IT AROUND

  • IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:04.080
  • THAT'S WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:17:04.080 --> 00:17:05.100
  • SOME OF OUR FRIENDS SAID,
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:06.200
  • WE GOT A $400.000 GRANT,
  • 00:17:06.200 --> 00:17:07.280
  • SEVERAL CAME TOGETHER AND SAID
  • 00:17:07.280 --> 00:17:09.100
  • "WE'LL MATCH $400.000."
  • 00:17:09.100 --> 00:17:11.030
  • YOU GIVE AND YOUR GIFT

  • WILL BE DOUBLED.
  • 00:17:12.240 --> 00:17:14.090
  • AND FOR $30, $50, OR $100

  • Betty: JAMES,
  • 00:17:21.190 --> 00:17:22.280
  • THERE ARE SOME DISEASES
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.030
  • THAT WE BATTLE IN LIFE
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:25.160
  • THAT WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE
  • 00:17:25.160 --> 00:17:26.180
  • TO FIND THE CURE FOR
  • 00:17:26.180 --> 00:17:27.210
  • AND IT BREAKS OUR HEART
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:28.290
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:17:28.290 --> 00:17:30.010
  • WE GIVE UP.
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:31.030
  • WELL, THIS IS A DISEASE

  • THAT THEY CAN'T --
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:43.290
  • WHEN THEY HEAR THE CRYING
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:45.040

  • THAT THEY WERE SERVING
  • 00:20:19.130 --> 00:20:20.200

  • HA! NOW HERE'S
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.070
  • WHAT I MEAN BY THAT.
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:24.130
  • AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:27.010
  • THIS PLATE CAME BY WITH
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:28.210
  • SOME LITTLE PIECES OF BREAD.
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:30.120
  • NOW WE KNOW IT AS COMMUNION,
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:32.040
  • BUT I DIDN'T KNOW THAT
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:33.080
  • WHEN I WAS EIGHT.
  • 00:20:33.080 --> 00:20:34.120
  • I REMEMBER THINKING,
  • 00:20:34.120 --> 00:20:35.180
  • "THIS IS GREAT BECAUSE
  • 00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:36.240
  • I'M STARVING TO DEATH!"
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:38.080
  • I WENT TO GRAB SOME
  • 00:20:38.080 --> 00:20:39.120
  • LITTLE PIECES OF BREAD
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:40.170
  • AND MY FATHER SAID,
  • 00:20:40.170 --> 00:20:41.190
  • "YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT."
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:42.240
  • HE WASN'T TRYING TO BE MEAN,
  • 00:20:42.240 --> 00:20:44.060
  • HE WAS JUST TELLING ME
  • 00:20:44.060 --> 00:20:45.140
  • THAT YOU DON'T TAKE COMMUNION
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:47.240
  • UNTIL YOU'VE RECEIVE JESUS
  • 00:20:47.240 --> 00:20:49.020
  • AS YOUR LORD.
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:50.120
  • I SAID, "WHY CAN'T
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.110
  • I HAVE THAT?"
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:52.180
  • HE SAID, "WELL, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:20:52.180 --> 00:20:53.250
  • TAKE THAT UNTIL YOU ARE
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:55.020
  • A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:20:55.020 --> 00:20:56.150
  • THEN ANOTHER TRAY CAME BY AND
  • 00:20:56.150 --> 00:20:57.250
  • THERE WAS SOME GRAPE JUICE
  • 00:20:57.250 --> 00:20:59.060
  • IN IT AND I LOVE GRAPE JUICE.
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:01.050
  • SO I WENT TO GET SOME
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:02.130
  • GRAPE JUICE AND MY DAD SAID,
  • 00:21:02.130 --> 00:21:03.250
  • "YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT."
  • 00:21:03.250 --> 00:21:05.040
  • I SAID, "WHY?"
  • 00:21:05.040 --> 00:21:06.140
  • HE SAID, "YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT
  • 00:21:06.140 --> 00:21:07.240
  • UNTIL YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN."
  • 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:09.120
  • YOU KNOW MY NEXT QUESTION WAS,
  • 00:21:09.120 --> 00:21:10.210
  • DON'T YOU?
  • 00:21:10.210 --> 00:21:11.280
  • SURE!
  • 00:21:11.280 --> 00:21:13.040
  • WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:14.050
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:21:14.050 --> 00:21:15.130
  • I WANT TO SIGN UP RIGHT NOW!"
  • 00:21:15.130 --> 00:21:16.220
  • WELL, MY DAD SAID,
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:17.260
  • "WE'LL HAVE THE PASTOR
  • 00:21:17.260 --> 00:21:19.030
  • COME OVER AFTER CHURCH
  • 00:21:19.030 --> 00:21:20.070
  • AND EXPLAIN IT TO YOU.
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:21.120
  • WELL, IT WAS TOO LATE.
  • 00:21:21.120 --> 00:21:22.160
  • THE GRAPE JUICE WAS
  • 00:21:22.160 --> 00:21:23.200
  • THREE ROWS BACK.
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:24.280
  • WELL, THE PASTOR CAME OVER
  • 00:21:24.280 --> 00:21:26.010
  • AND HE EXPLAINED TO ME ABOUT
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:27.090
  • ASKING JESUS INTO MY HEART.
  • 00:21:27.090 --> 00:21:28.150
  • I ACTUALLY PRAYED A PRAYER.
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:29.220
  • JESUS DIDN'T COME INTO
  • 00:21:29.220 --> 00:21:30.260
  • MY HEART BECAUSE IT WASN'T
  • 00:21:30.260 --> 00:21:32.040
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WAS
  • 00:21:32.040 --> 00:21:33.100
  • DRAWING ME, IT WAS THE GRAPE
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:34.200
  • I GREW UP IN CHURCH
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:37.120
  • AND I WENT ON YOUTH CAMPS
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:38.260
  • AND YOUTH RETREATS.
  • 00:21:38.260 --> 00:21:40.100
  • ONE YOUTH CAMP I WENT ON,
  • 00:21:40.100 --> 00:21:41.190
  • THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:21:41.190 --> 00:21:42.250
  • GIVING OUR LIFE TO GOD.
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:44.000
  • THESE GREAT ILLUSTRATIONS.
  • 00:21:45.040 --> 00:21:46.220
  • WE HAD THESE LITTLE
  • 00:21:46.220 --> 00:21:48.020
  • DAIRY QUEEN BANANA SPLIT BOATS
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:50.290
  • AND THEY PUT A CANDLE IN THEM
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:52.290
  • AND WE WERE SUPPOSED TO PUT IT
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:54.040
  • INTO THE LAKE AND SAY,
  • 00:21:54.040 --> 00:21:55.070
  • "THIS IS MY LIFE FOR GOD."
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.140
  • AND I PUT MINE IN THE LAKE
  • 00:21:56.140 --> 00:21:58.140
  • AND MINE WENT OUT KIND OF
  • 00:21:58.140 --> 00:21:59.250
  • THIS WAY AND THE OTHER BOATS
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:01.050
  • WENT THAT WAY AND ALL OF
  • 00:22:01.050 --> 00:22:02.200
  • THE SUDDEN, THE CANDLE FELL
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:04.070
  • OVER AND MY LITTLE
  • 00:22:04.070 --> 00:22:05.210
  • DAIRY QUEEN BOAT
  • 00:22:05.210 --> 00:22:07.040
  • CAUGHT ON FIRE AND SANK.
  • 00:22:07.040 --> 00:22:09.150
  • IT WAS IN FRONT OF
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:10.270
  • THE WHOLE YOUTH.
  • 00:22:10.270 --> 00:22:12.060
  • MANY, MANY TIMES GROWING UP,
  • 00:22:12.060 --> 00:22:13.150
  • I HAD THESE TIMES WHEN
  • 00:22:13.150 --> 00:22:15.000
  • I WOULD TRY TO RE-COMMIT
  • 00:22:15.000 --> 00:22:16.100
  • MY LIFE TO THE LORD.
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:17.210
  • BUT WHEN I WAS 19 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:22:17.210 --> 00:22:19.040
  • I WAS IN A MOTEL ROOM
  • 00:22:19.040 --> 00:22:20.140
  • AND FOR THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:22:20.140 --> 00:22:21.280
  • I REALIZED I AM SEPARATED
  • 00:22:21.280 --> 00:22:23.240
  • FROM GOD.
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:25.000
  • I'M LOST.
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:26.130
  • AND IF ANYONE DESERVES
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:27.230
  • TO GO TO HELL, I DO!
  • 00:22:27.230 --> 00:22:29.100
  • IN THAT MOTEL ROOM I SAID,
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:30.270
  • "GOD, I CAN'T CHANGE.
  • 00:22:30.270 --> 00:22:32.080
  • I'VE TRIED TO CHANGE
  • 00:22:32.080 --> 00:22:33.220
  • BUT IF YOU WANT ME,
  • 00:22:33.220 --> 00:22:35.040
  • YOU CAN HAVE ME.
  • 00:22:35.040 --> 00:22:36.080
  • I GIVE YOU COMPLETE CONTROL
  • 00:22:36.080 --> 00:22:38.170
  • OF MY LIFE AND FROM THAT DAY
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:40.270
  • FORWARD, MY LIFE CHANGED.
  • 00:22:40.270 --> 00:22:43.100
  • I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU.
  • 00:22:43.100 --> 00:22:44.180
  • MAYBE YOU'VE GROWN UP
  • 00:22:44.180 --> 00:22:45.250
  • IN CHURCH AND YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:22:45.250 --> 00:22:47.020
  • IN GOD IN YOUR MIND,
  • 00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:48.170
  • BUT IF YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN HIM
  • 00:22:48.170 --> 00:22:49.230
  • FULL CONTROL, I WANT
  • 00:22:49.230 --> 00:22:51.180
  • TO ENCOURAGE YOU TODAY,
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:53.220
  • SAY "LORD, I GIVE YOU MY LIFE.
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:55.190
  • TODAY I GIVE YOU
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:56.280
