  • Announcer: NEXT! WITH JARRING HEADLINES,
  • 00:00:06.170 --> 00:00:08.150
  • RAPID CULTURAL CHANGE, MORAL DECAY,
  • 00:00:08.180 --> 00:00:11.060
  • AND TERRORISM SWEEPING THE GLOBE,
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:13.100
  • DR. DAVID JEREMIAH ASKS IS THIS THE END?
  • 00:00:13.130 --> 00:00:16.270
  • - ASK YOURSELF WHAT IS IT THAT I NEED TO DO?
  • 00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:18.280
  • AND HOW DO I STAND UP TO THAT?
  • 00:00:19.010 --> 00:00:20.280
  • AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THOSE THINGS TAKE PLACE;
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:24.060
  • HOW DO I RESPOND TO THAT? WHAT DOES GOD WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:00:24.090 --> 00:00:27.180
  • IF WE LIVE GODLY IN CHRIST JESUS
  • 00:00:27.210 --> 00:00:29.190
  • WE WILL SUFFER PERSECUTION.
  • 00:00:29.220 --> 00:00:31.190
  • SO DON'T BE SURPRISED BY IT. IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:00:31.220 --> 00:00:33.290
  • HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH IT?
  • 00:00:34.020 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:47.140

  • GOING TO BE IMPACTED
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:12.110
  • BY WHAT HE IS SHARING.
  • 00:01:12.110 --> 00:01:13.140
  • DR. DAVID JEREMIAH,
  • 00:01:13.140 --> 00:01:14.160
  • PASTOR OF SHADOW MOUNTAIN
  • 00:01:14.160 --> 00:01:15.160
  • IN THE GREATER
  • 00:01:15.160 --> 00:01:16.200
  • SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA AREA
  • 00:01:16.200 --> 00:01:17.220
  • IT SEEMS EVERY BOOK HE WRITES
  • 00:01:17.220 --> 00:01:18.220
  • IS A BESTSELLER
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:19.220
  • ALMOST THE MOMENT
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:20.220
  • IT COMES OUT OF THE BLOCKS --
  • 00:01:20.220 --> 00:01:21.220
  • AND SO IT IS.
  • 00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:22.240
  • IS THIS THE END?
  • 00:01:22.240 --> 00:01:23.270
  • PEOPLE ARE ASKING THIS.
  • 00:01:23.270 --> 00:01:25.040
  • DAVID JEREMIAH ANSWERS,
  • 00:01:25.040 --> 00:01:27.280
  • "SIGNS OF GOD'S PROVIDENCE
  • 00:01:27.280 --> 00:01:30.060
  • IN A DISTURBING NEW WORLD."
  • 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:32.100
  • I WOULD SAY, BETTY,
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:33.130
  • IN OUR LIFETIME THE WORLD
  • 00:01:33.130 --> 00:01:34.200
  • HAS CERTAINLY CHANGED.
  • 00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:35.240
  • YOU AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:36.280
  • FOR APPROACHING 54 YEARS AND
  • 00:01:37.060 --> 00:01:40.060
  • WE WOULD NOT HAVE BELIEVED
  • 00:01:40.060 --> 00:01:41.120
  • WHAT WE ARE WATCHING TODAY
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:42.250
  • COULD HAVE HAPPENED
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:44.000
  • IN OUR NATION.
  • 00:01:44.000 --> 00:01:45.020
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:46.030
  • DR. DAVID JEREMIAH
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:47.050
  • TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:48.100
  • [Applause]
  • 00:01:48.100 --> 00:01:50.160
  • I'M GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:51.280
  • I KNOW THAT RIGHT NOW
  • 00:01:51.280 --> 00:01:53.070
  • YOUR WIFE HAS HAD
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:54.150
  • A LITTLE BIT OF A CHALLENGE.
  • 00:01:54.150 --> 00:01:55.230
  • YOU SAID SOMETHING IN CHURCH
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:57.140
  • THAT YOU SAID
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:58.160
  • IT ACTUALLY LED TO TODAY,
  • 00:01:58.160 --> 00:01:59.170
  • "I'VE GOT TO BE SURE
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:00.210
  • I'M BEING REALLY CAREFUL."
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:01.220
  • WOULD YOU TELL OUR VIEWERS
  • 00:02:01.220 --> 00:02:02.280
  • WHAT JUST DOWNLOADED AND
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:04.070
  • YOU SHARED WITH YOUR CHURCH
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:05.110
  • BECAUSE I THOUGHT
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:06.130
  • IT WAS AMAZING
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:07.130
  • HOW THESE WORDS FIT TOGETHER
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:08.160
  • AND THEN YOU SAID
  • 00:02:08.160 --> 00:02:09.170
  • YOU GOT CHALLENGED ON IT.
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:10.190
  • David: USUALLY, JAMES,
  • 00:02:10.190 --> 00:02:11.220
  • IF YOU PREACH LONG ENOUGH
  • 00:02:11.220 --> 00:02:12.240
  • GOING TO GET THAT SERMON
  • 00:02:13.280 --> 00:02:14.290
  • PREACHED RIGHT AT YOU
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.010
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:17.050
  • TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH IT.
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:18.090
  • SO I WAS TELLING YOU
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:19.100
  • THAT I WAS PREACHING A SERIES
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:20.120
  • AND PART OF THAT WAS BEING
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:23.040
  • FULLY ENGAGED AS PARENTS
  • 00:02:23.040 --> 00:02:25.070
  • AND PARTNERS.
  • 00:02:25.070 --> 00:02:26.180
  • AND AT THE END OF THE SERMON
  • 00:02:26.180 --> 00:02:27.270
  • THAT I PREACHED LAST WEEK
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:29.140
  • I SAID HERE ARE THE PRIORITIES
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:30.190
  • THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:31.260
  • THAT I'VE TRIED TO FOLLOW
  • 00:02:31.260 --> 00:02:33.020
  • SINCE I'VE BEEN A PASTOR
  • 00:02:33.020 --> 00:02:34.140
  • AFTER I GOT THIS
  • 00:02:34.140 --> 00:02:35.210
  • ALL STRAIGHTENED OUT
  • 00:02:35.210 --> 00:02:36.260
  • EARLY IN MY MINISTRY.
  • 00:02:36.260 --> 00:02:38.080
  • NUMBER ONE: I'M A PERSON
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:39.200
  • WITH A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:02:39.200 --> 00:02:41.170
  • NUMBER TWO: I'M A PARTNER
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:43.200
  • WITH A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:45.060
  • WITH MY WIFE.
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.160
  • NUMBER THREE: I'M A PARENT
  • 00:02:46.160 --> 00:02:47.210
  • WITH A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:48.260
  • WITH MY CHILDREN.
  • 00:02:48.260 --> 00:02:50.030
  • AND NUMBER FOUR: I'M A PASTOR.
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:51.060
  • I JOKE WITH OUR CONGREGATION
  • 00:02:51.060 --> 00:02:52.250
  • THAT THEY'RE NUMBER FOUR.
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:57.010
  • MANY OF THEM HAVE SAID TO ME,
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:02:59.020
  • "WE DON'T WANT TO BE
  • 00:02:59.020 --> 00:03:00.120
  • ANY HIGHER THAN NUMBER FOUR
  • 00:03:00.120 --> 00:03:01.250
  • BECAUSE IF NUMBERS ONE, TWO,
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:03.100
  • AND THREE AREN'T RIGHT
  • 00:03:03.100 --> 00:03:04.220
  • YOU HAVEN'T GOT ANYTHING
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:05.250
  • TO OFFER US."
  • 00:03:05.250 --> 00:03:07.060
  • SO ANYWAY,
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.090
  • I PREACH THIS SERMON
  • 00:03:08.090 --> 00:03:09.110
  • AND I'VE GOT THIS TOUR
  • 00:03:09.110 --> 00:03:10.110
  • THAT I'M SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 00:03:10.110 --> 00:03:11.130
  • TAKING STARTING HERE,
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:12.160
  • AND DONNA AND I ARE
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:13.200
  • LOOKING FORWARD TO IT,
  • 00:03:13.200 --> 00:03:14.220
  • AND SHE INJURES HER LEG.
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:18.030
  • AND I HAVE TO DECIDE
  • 00:03:18.030 --> 00:03:19.180
  • WHETHER I'M GOING TO LISTEN
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.220
  • TO MY OWN SERMON
  • 00:03:20.220 --> 00:03:22.050
  • AND TAKE CARE OF MY WIFE
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:23.220
  • OR I'M GOING
  • 00:03:23.220 --> 00:03:24.250
  • TO GO ON THIS TOUR.
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:26.150
  • SO I ENDED UP CANCELLING
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:28.140
  • EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR YOU.
  • 00:03:28.140 --> 00:03:31.060
  • AND I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:03:31.060 --> 00:03:32.060
  • TO TELL EVERYBODY
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.070
  • THE FEAR I HAVE FOR YOU
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:34.080
  • SO I WOULD NEVER CANCEL YOU.
  • 00:03:34.080 --> 00:03:35.120
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:37.000
  • SO I TOLD DONNA, "I'M GOING
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:39.050
  • TO FLY DOWN TO DALLAS
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:40.110
  • AND BE WITH JAMES
  • 00:03:40.110 --> 00:03:41.170
  • AND THEN I'M GOING TO FLY HOME
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:42.190
  • AND I WON'T EVEN
  • 00:03:42.190 --> 00:03:43.260
  • MISS ONE NIGHT."
  • 00:03:43.260 --> 00:03:45.040
  • BUT I HAD TO DO
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:46.070
  • WHAT I PREACHED.
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:47.130
  • IF YOU PREACH IT,
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:48.170
  • YOU BETTER PRACTICE IT; RIGHT?
  • 00:03:48.170 --> 00:03:49.270
  • James: I THINK IT'S GREAT
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:50.270
  • AND I THINK YOUR CONGREGATION
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:52.030
  • ANSWERED SO WELL.
  • 00:03:52.030 --> 00:03:53.060
  • I DO APPRECIATE THE FACT
  • 00:03:53.060 --> 00:03:55.030
  • THAT I BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:56.120
  • GOD HAS ALLOWED US TO DO
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:03:59.070
  • ON THIS SAME LIFE JOURNEY.
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:01.070
  • I THINK YOU'RE
  • 00:04:01.070 --> 00:04:02.120
  • A TRUE STATESMAN TODAY.
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:03.190
  • A GREAT GIFT FROM GOD.
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:06.040
  • WHEN I FIND MYSELF
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.250
  • LISTENING TO YOU OR READING
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:09.070
  • WHAT YOU'VE WRITTEN
  • 00:04:09.070 --> 00:04:10.150
  • AND HOW IT'S AFFECTED PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:11.260
  • I JUST SAY, "GOD,
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:13.080
  • THANK YOU THAT IN MY DAY
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:14.200
  • IN VERY CHALLENGING TIMES
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:16.070
  • DR. JEREMIAH IS HERE."
  • 00:04:16.070 --> 00:04:17.230
  • AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:04:17.230 --> 00:04:18.280
  • DOING NOW MORE THAN EVER.
  • 00:04:18.280 --> 00:04:20.200
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:21.270
  • ARE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:23.010
  • ARE THESE THE LAST DAYS?
  • 00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:24.010
  • AND THEY TRY TO START
  • 00:04:24.010 --> 00:04:25.020
  • DATING THINGS WHEN THE LORD
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:26.030
  • MADE IT VERY CLEAR
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:27.040
  • DON'T DATE IT.
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:28.050
  • YOU DON'T KNOW IT.
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:29.060
  • IT'S NOT FOR YOU
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:30.070
  • TO GET ALL FRUSTRATED BY IT.
  • 00:04:30.070 --> 00:04:31.080
  • BUT HE TOLD THEM
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:32.100
  • AT THE VERY BEGINNING
  • 00:04:32.100 --> 00:04:33.120
  • WHEN HE SAID THAT,
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:34.160
  • "I'M LEAVING YOU HERE
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:35.180
  • TO BE WITNESSES UNTO ME
  • 00:04:35.180 --> 00:04:36.210
  • STARTING AT HOME,
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:37.270
  • NEIGHBORING COMMUNITY
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:39.060
  • TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH."
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.120
  • WOULD YOU SAY THAT SOMEHOW,
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.160
  • IN LIGHT OF WHAT'S BEEN
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:42.210
  • GOING ON IN THE WORLD
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:43.220
  • AND IN OUR NATION,
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:44.280
  • THAT CHRISTIANS HAVE NOT BEEN
  • 00:04:44.280 --> 00:04:45.290
  • AS FAITHFUL AND AS COMMITTED
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:47.020
  • TO BEING THE WITNESSES
  • 00:04:47.020 --> 00:04:48.090
  • AND AS REPRESENTATIVES
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:49.180
  • OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:50.180
  • IN THEIR OWN TIME RIGHT HERE
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:52.080
  • AND THAT'S A PROBLEM?
  • 00:04:52.080 --> 00:04:53.190
  • David: YEAH, WE'VE CREATED
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:54.210
  • OUR OWN COMFORT ZONE, JAMES.
  • 00:04:54.210 --> 00:04:56.070
  • WE'VE GOT TO A PLACE WHERE
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:57.150
  • YEAH, WE WANT TO GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:59.080
  • WE'RE INVOLVED
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:00.160
  • IN THE MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:05:00.160 --> 00:05:01.190
  • BUT WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:02.220
  • CONFRONTING THE ISSUES
  • 00:05:02.220 --> 00:05:03.290
  • THAT CONFRONT US,
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.120
  • WE WAIT FOR SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:06.190
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:07.220
  • WE THINK THAT'S NOT OUR JOB;
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.010
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT I'VE BEEN
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:10.140
  • CALLED TO -- I HEAR PEOPLE
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:11.230
  • SAY THAT ALL THE TIME --
  • 00:05:11.230 --> 00:05:12.280
  • "I'VE NOT BEEN CALLED
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:14.030
  • TO DO THAT."
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:15.070
  • WELL, SOMEBODY BETTER
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:16.070
  • BE CALLED TO DO IT
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:17.090
  • BECAUSE IF WE DON'T DO IT
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:18.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE OVERRUN
  • 00:05:18.130 --> 00:05:20.220
  • BY THE SECULAR HUMANISM
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:22.070
  • THAT IS JUST TAKING OVER
  • 00:05:22.070 --> 00:05:23.170
  • IN OUR WORLD TODAY.
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:25.170
  • James: NOW PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:26.240
  • PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE TRUTH
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:29.030
  • HAVE NOT HELD IT IN HIGH
  • 00:05:29.030 --> 00:05:30.050
  • ENOUGH REGARD TO DECLARE IT,
  • 00:05:30.050 --> 00:05:31.170
  • TO DEMONSTRATE IT,
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:32.210
  • AND EVEN TO DEFEND IT AND
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:34.030
  • EXCHANGE THE TRUTH OF GOD
  • 00:05:35.110 --> 00:05:36.190
  • FOR A LIE.
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:37.270
  • LIES ARE PREVAILING
  • 00:05:37.270 --> 00:05:39.050
  • IN THE LAND IN THE LAST DAYS
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:40.160
  • BECAUSE I THINK CHRISTIANS
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:41.230
  • HAVE NOT REALLY PROCLAIMED
  • 00:05:41.230 --> 00:05:43.200
  • AND DEMONSTRATED THE TRUTH.
  • 00:05:43.200 --> 00:05:45.050
  • SO WHEN YOU WRITE THIS,
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:46.100
  • TELL ME WHAT IS IT
  • 00:05:46.100 --> 00:05:47.160
  • THAT YOU WANT PEOPLE TO SEE?
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:48.190
  • IS IT LOOKING
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:49.210
  • JUST FOR A GREAT ESCAPE
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:50.240
  • OR ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO SEE
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:52.000
  • SOME GOD-GIVEN ASSIGNMENT
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:54.110
  • FOR THIS MOMENT IN THEIR LIFE
  • 00:05:54.110 --> 00:05:55.170
  • AND IN HISTORY?
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:56.220
  • David: JAMES, WHEN I STARTED
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:57.280
  • HEARING QUESTIONS FROM PEOPLE
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:00.100
  • AS I TRAVELED,
  • 00:06:00.100 --> 00:06:01.140
  • WHAT ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:06:01.140 --> 00:06:02.150
  • WHAT ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:03.150
  • HOW DOES THIS FIT
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:04.170
  • I DON'T CLAIM TO HAVE
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:06.200
  • ANY SPECIAL SUPERIOR
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:07.230
  • KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THAT
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:08.250
  • BUT I DID KNOW
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:10.020
  • THAT SOME OF THE ISSUES
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:11.050
  • THAT WERE BEING DISCUSSED
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.110
  • HAD SOME ANSWERS
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:14.040
  • FROM THE BIBLE.
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:15.100
  • I WANTED PEOPLE TO KNOW
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:16.160
  • THAT WE'RE NOT LEFT
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:17.200
  • WITHOUT A MESSAGE,
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:19.020
  • WE'RE NOT LEFT
  • 00:06:19.020 --> 00:06:20.050
  • WITHOUT A WORD FROM GOD.
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:21.080
  • EVEN IN THINGS
  • 00:06:21.080 --> 00:06:22.110
  • AS CONTROVERSIAL
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:23.140
  • AS IMMIGRATION.
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:27.130
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:28.190
  • THAT I'VE BEEN VERY,
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:29.270
  • VERY AWARE OF IN RECENT DAYS
  • 00:06:29.270 --> 00:06:31.130
  • IS WHAT IS HAPPENING
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:32.260
  • TO THE CHURCH,
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.070
  • THE PERSECUTION OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:35.130
  • HOW THE CHURCH IS BEING --
  • 00:06:35.130 --> 00:06:36.180
  • ONE OF MY FAVORITE TERMS
  • 00:06:36.180 --> 00:06:37.180
  • IN THE BOOK IS
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:38.200
  • THE CHURCH IS BEING SQUEEZED,
  • 00:06:38.200 --> 00:06:39.270
  • IT IS BEING MARGINALIZED
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:41.040
  • AND STEREOTYPED AND LITIGATED.
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:42.280
  • AND MORE THAN EVER BEFORE
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:45.000
  • IN ANY OF OUR LIFETIME,
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:46.080
  • ANY OF US LIVING TODAY,
  • 00:06:46.080 --> 00:06:47.210
  • THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:48.270
  • IN AMERICA IS BEING PUSHED
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:51.110
  • GRADUALLY BUT VERY FIRMLY,
  • 00:06:51.110 --> 00:06:54.080
  • A KICK TO THE CURB
  • 00:06:54.080 --> 00:06:55.290
  • EVERY TIME THEY CAN.
  • 00:06:55.290 --> 00:06:57.170
  • James: OUT OF
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:06:58.230
  • THE PUBLIC SQUARE.
  • 00:06:58.230 --> 00:07:00.020
  • GO UNDERCOVER!
  • 00:07:00.020 --> 00:07:01.130
  • David: AND EVERY TIME
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:02.240
  • YOU TURN AROUND
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:04.020
  • THERE IS NEW EVIDENCE OF THAT.
  • 00:07:04.020 --> 00:07:05.250
  • SO IN A CHAPTER IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:08.140
  • ON THE PERSECUTION
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:10.120
  • OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:12.030
  • I GIVE SOME ILLUSTRATIONS
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:13.110
  • OF WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:14.150
  • THEY'RE ABUNDANT.
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:15.190
  • I DIDN'T HAVE TO LOOK FAR.
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:16.280
  • THEN ASK YOURSELF
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:18.080
  • WHAT IS IT THAT I NEED TO DO
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:19.200
  • AND HOW DO I STAND UP TO THAT?
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:20.250
  • WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
  • 00:07:20.250 --> 00:07:22.240
  • THOSE THINGS TAKE PLACE?
  • 00:07:22.240 --> 00:07:24.140
  • HOW DO I RESPOND TO THAT?
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:25.250
  • WHAT DOES GOD WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:07:25.250 --> 00:07:28.080
  • REMIND US ALL THAT GOD SAYS
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:29.270
  • IF WE LIVE GODLY
  • 00:07:29.270 --> 00:07:31.280
  • IN CHRIST JESUS
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:33.050
  • WE WILL SUFFER PERSECUTION.
  • 00:07:33.050 --> 00:07:35.020
  • SO DON'T BE SURPRISED BY IT.
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.170
  • IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:36.170 --> 00:07:37.230
  • HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH IT?
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:39.000
  • HOW DO YOU STAND UP FOR IT?
  • 00:07:39.000 --> 00:07:40.110
  • AND HOW DO YOU LET GOD
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:41.190
  • USE IT IN YOUR OWN LIFE
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:42.250
  • TO PURIFY WHO YOU ARE?
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:43.290
  • THAT'S IN THAT ONE CHAPTER.
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:45.100
  • SO THERE IS ONE ISSUE
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:46.160
  • THAT I ADDRESSED.
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:47.250
  • James: WELL,
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:49.010
  • YOU REFERENCED IMMIGRATION,
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:50.080
  • THE BLEEDING OF OUR BORDERS.
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:51.200
  • WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT
  • 00:07:51.200 --> 00:07:52.250
  • PEOPLE TO HEAR THERE
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.020
  • BECAUSE WE'VE GOT A REAL
  • 00:07:54.020 --> 00:07:55.080
  • SERIOUS IMMIGRATION PROBLEM?
  • 00:07:55.080 --> 00:07:56.110
  • WE ACTUALLY HAVE
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:07:57.140
  • GREAT THREATS
  • 00:07:57.140 --> 00:07:58.170
  • POTENTIALLY OF PEOPLE
  • 00:07:58.170 --> 00:08:00.040
  • COMING IN WHO ACTUALLY
  • 00:08:00.040 --> 00:08:01.110
  • WANT TO DO US GREAT HARM,
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:02.180
  • WHO WANT TO DESTROY
  • 00:08:02.180 --> 00:08:03.260
  • ALL OF THE THINGS
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:05.000
  • THAT IN ESSENCE
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.050
  • HAVE MADE US A GREAT COUNTRY,
  • 00:08:06.050 --> 00:08:07.120
  • THE LAND OF THE FREE.
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:08.170
  • David: THERE ARE MANY,
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:09.210
  • MANY ISSUES
  • 00:08:09.210 --> 00:08:10.250
  • IN THE IMMIGRATION DISCUSSION
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:12.210
  • THAT I DON'T HAVE A TREMENDOUS
  • 00:08:12.260 --> 00:08:15.260
  • AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:17.110
  • EXCEPT I SEE WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:19.100
  • FOR INSTANCE,
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.260
  • HERE IN DALLAS/FORT WORTH
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:22.160
  • AT PARKLAND HOSPITAL
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:24.240
  • THE LARGEST NUMBER OF BABIES
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:26.180
  • BORN IN THAT HOSPITAL,
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:28.080
  • AND IN JUST ABOUT
  • 00:08:28.080 --> 00:08:29.100
  • ANY PLACE IN AMERICA,
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:30.120
  • AND SO MANY OF THEM
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:31.230
  • ARE HERE ILLEGALLY
  • 00:08:31.230 --> 00:08:33.070
  • AND IT'S DRIVING
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:34.250
  • THE COST OF EVERYTHING UP.
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:37.190
  • THAT'S ONE PART OF IT.
  • 00:08:37.190 --> 00:08:39.000
  • THE OTHER PART IS THAT GOD
  • 00:08:39.000 --> 00:08:40.260
  • HAS BROUGHT THESE PEOPLE HERE.
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:42.170
  • HERE'S KIND OF HOW
  • 00:08:42.170 --> 00:08:43.250
  • I RESPOND TO THAT.
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.150
  • I CAN'T STOP IMMIGRATION.
  • 00:08:45.150 --> 00:08:47.080
  • WHO AM I?
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.140
  • I CAN'T STAND AT THE BORDER
  • 00:08:48.140 --> 00:08:50.000
  • AND VET EVERYBODY
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:51.220
  • WHO COMES IN.
  • 00:08:51.220 --> 00:08:53.010
  • SO WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:54.070
  • AS A PASTOR?
  • 00:08:54.070 --> 00:08:55.140
  • HERE'S WHAT I THINK.
  • 00:08:55.140 --> 00:08:57.040
  • I THINK, JAMES, THAT GOD SAID,
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:08:59.010
  • "GO INTO ALL THE WORLD
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:00.120
  • AND PREACH THE GOSPEL
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:01.150
  • TO EVERY CREATURE"
  • 00:09:01.150 --> 00:09:02.150
  • AND WE'VE DONE
  • 00:09:02.150 --> 00:09:03.160
  • SUCH A SORRY JOB,
  • 00:09:03.160 --> 00:09:04.190
  • HE'S DUMPING THEM
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:05.260
  • AT OUR OWN DOORSTEP.
  • 00:09:05.260 --> 00:09:06.290
  • HE'S SAYING, "IF YOU WON'T GO
  • 00:09:06.290 --> 00:09:07.290
  • WHERE THEY ARE
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:09.010
  • I'LL BRING THEM
  • 00:09:09.010 --> 00:09:10.060
  • WHERE YOU ARE."
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:11.100
  • SO MY MAIN PASSION
  • 00:09:11.100 --> 00:09:12.120
  • FOR IMMIGRATION
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:13.160
  • IS TO WIN THEM TO CHRIST.
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:14.180
  • WE HAVE A SPANISH CHURCH,
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:15.200
  • WE HAVE AN ARABIC CHURCH.
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:16.200
  • WE'RE TRYING
  • 00:09:16.200 --> 00:09:17.240
  • TO WIN THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:18.260
  • THAT GOD HAS BROUGHT TO US.
  • 00:09:18.260 --> 00:09:19.290
  • THEN I GO TO THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:21.020
  • AND I REALIZE
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:22.050
  • THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:23.060
  • SOME INSIGHT INTO THIS
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:24.110
  • BECAUSE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:25.160
  • IMMIGRANTS WERE CALLED
  • 00:09:25.160 --> 00:09:26.170
  • "STRANGERS."
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:27.190
  • AND THREE THINGS, STRANGERS,
  • 00:09:27.190 --> 00:09:28.230
  • HOW THEY RELATED TO ISRAEL
  • 00:09:28.230 --> 00:09:29.280
  • WERE NUMBER ONE
  • 00:09:29.280 --> 00:09:31.030
  • THEY WERE TO ACCEPT THEM,
  • 00:09:31.030 --> 00:09:33.150
  • THEY WERE TO ASSIST THEM,
  • 00:09:33.150 --> 00:09:35.020
  • AND THEY WERE
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:36.120
  • ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING THINGS
  • 00:09:37.180 --> 00:09:38.200
  • IN THAT LANGUAGE IS THAT
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:39.240
  • WHENEVER GOD SPOKE TO ISRAEL
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:41.230
  • AFTER THAT TIME
  • 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:43.260
  • "AND YOU'RE STRANGERS ALSO."
  • 00:09:45.150 --> 00:09:47.200
  • EVERYTHING HE SAID TO ISRAEL
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:49.030
  • HE WOULD ADD --
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:50.090
  • YOU CAN LOOK IT UP.
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:51.190
  • IT'S IN DEUTERONOMY
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:52.220
  • OVER AND OVER AGAIN,
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:53.240
  • "AND YOU'RE STRANGERS ALSO."
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:54.280
  • GOD LAID UPON THE IMMIGRANTS,
  • 00:09:54.280 --> 00:09:56.280
  • THE STRANGERS
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:57.290
  • THE SAME RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:09:57.290 --> 00:09:59.050
  • THAT HE PLACED UPON ISRAEL.
  • 00:09:59.050 --> 00:10:00.240
  • THAT'S WHERE WE'RE
  • 00:10:00.240 --> 00:10:02.060
  • MISSING IT IN AMERICA
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:03.100
  • BECAUSE WE'RE ALLOWING PEOPLE
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:04.140
  • TO COME IN HERE AND NOT
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:05.170
  • BECOME A PART OF AMERICA
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:06.250
  • BUT BECOME THEIR OWN PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:06.250 --> 00:10:08.180
  • START THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES;
  • 00:10:08.180 --> 00:10:09.260
  • SOMETIMES EVEN
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:11.060
  • ANTI-AMERICAN IN THEIR --
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:12.170
  • AND THAT'S NOT
  • 00:10:12.170 --> 00:10:14.120
  • GOING TO EVER WORK
  • 00:10:14.120 --> 00:10:15.210
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO PAY
  • 00:10:15.210 --> 00:10:16.260
  • THE PENALTY FOR THAT.
  • 00:10:16.260 --> 00:10:18.060
  • James: CREATE A NATION
  • 00:10:18.060 --> 00:10:19.130
  • WITHIN A NATION.
  • 00:10:19.130 --> 00:10:20.130
  • THAT ACTUALLY SOMETIMES
  • 00:10:20.130 --> 00:10:21.130
  • CAN CALL FOR THE OVERTHROW
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:22.140
  • OF THE NATION
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:23.190
  • THEY HAVE COME INTO
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:24.240
  • AS A SOJOURNER.
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:25.280
  • BETTY, WHEN YOU THINK
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:27.020
  • ABOUT THE END TIMES
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:28.040
  • AND YOU HAVE HAD SUCH --
  • 00:10:28.040 --> 00:10:29.130
  • YOU'RE SUCH AN INSPIRATION
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:30.160
  • TO ME BECAUSE OF YOUR,
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:31.260
  • I BELIEVE, GOD-GIVEN CONCERN
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:33.080
  • FOR WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:34.160
  • IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:10:34.160 --> 00:10:35.210
  • IT'S NOT LIKE YOU SAY,
  • 00:10:35.210 --> 00:10:36.240
  • "OKAY. WELL, IT'S WELL
  • 00:10:36.240 --> 00:10:37.270
  • WITH OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:10:37.270 --> 00:10:39.000
  • AND OUR GRANDCHILDREN."
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:40.020
  • IT'S LIKE YOU LOOK OUT
  • 00:10:40.020 --> 00:10:41.020
  • AND YOU WANT IT TO BE WELL
  • 00:10:41.020 --> 00:10:42.040
  • WITH EVERYBODY.
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.080
  • SO WHAT DO YOU THINK
  • 00:10:43.080 --> 00:10:44.080
  • IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:45.090
  • SOMEONE LIKE DR. JEREMIAH
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:46.110
  • CAN ADDRESS?
  • 00:10:46.110 --> 00:10:47.150
  • WHAT, IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:10:47.150 --> 00:10:48.190
  • YOUR CONCERN, AND YOUR LOVE
  • 00:10:48.190 --> 00:10:49.230
  • FOR WHAT IS GOING ON?
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:50.250
  • AND MANY OTHERS I THINK TOO
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:53.050
  • THAT WE HAVE COME TO KNOW
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.060
  • AND HEARD THEIR VIEWS ON
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:55.110
  • THAT IT'S NOT A TIME
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:56.150
  • TO DRAW BACK AS CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:10:56.150 --> 00:10:58.050
  • TO GO INTO HIDING.
  • 00:10:59.170 --> 00:11:00.230
  • IT IS NOT A TIME
  • 00:11:00.230 --> 00:11:01.270
  • TO BE INTIMIDATED.
  • 00:11:01.270 --> 00:11:03.010
  • GOD HAS PUT A PURPOSE
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:04.060
  • IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:05.080
  • HE'S PUT HIS SON JESUS
  • 00:11:05.080 --> 00:11:06.220
  • IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:07.220
  • HE'S SAVED US FROM OUR SINS
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:09.170
  • AND THAT'S THE MESSAGE
  • 00:11:09.170 --> 00:11:10.200
  • WE HAVE TO BE BOLD ABOUT
  • 00:11:10.200 --> 00:11:12.280
  • GETTING OUT THERE
  • 00:11:12.280 --> 00:11:14.110
  • AND DOING WHAT GOD'S PURPOSE
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:16.140
  • IN OUR HEART IS TO DO.
  • 00:11:16.140 --> 00:11:18.090
  • AND NOT TO DRAW BACK AND SAY,
  • 00:11:18.090 --> 00:11:19.210
  • "WELL, I'LL JUST WAIT.
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:20.240
  • I'LL JUST WAIT. I'M SAVED.
  • 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:21.240
  • I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING."
  • 00:11:21.240 --> 00:11:23.020
  • BUT GOD'S GOT PEOPLE OUT THERE
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:24.260
  • THAT HE WANTS TO KNOW HIM TOO.
  • 00:11:24.280 --> 00:11:27.280
  • WE MUST NOT QUIT EVANGELIZING
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:30.060
  • AND REACHING OUT
  • 00:11:30.060 --> 00:11:31.240
  • AND DISCIPLING PEOPLE.
  • 00:11:31.240 --> 00:11:33.080
  • David: WELL, I THINK
  • 00:11:33.080 --> 00:11:34.170
  • WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, BETTY,
  • 00:11:34.170 --> 00:11:35.250
  • IS YOU CAN'T TRADE IN
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:37.000
  • THE CULTURAL ISSUES
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:38.070
  • FOR THE GOSPEL BECAUSE
  • 00:11:38.070 --> 00:11:39.120
  • THEN YOU'VE GOT NOTHING.
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:40.140
  • ONE OF THE THINGS I THINK
  • 00:11:40.140 --> 00:11:41.240
  • WE CAN ALL LEARN FROM
  • 00:11:41.240 --> 00:11:43.060
  • IS THE FACT THAT
  • 00:11:43.060 --> 00:11:44.110
  • WHEN JESUS SPOKE
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:45.160
  • HE DID IT WITH GRACE
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:46.190
  • AND TRUTH.
  • 00:11:46.190 --> 00:11:47.220
  • IT SEEMS LIKE TODAY
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:49.060
  • THERE IS A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:11:49.060 --> 00:11:50.200
  • OF ERRING ON EITHER SIDE.
  • 00:11:50.200 --> 00:11:52.080
  • WE HAVE SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:11:52.080 --> 00:11:53.140
  • THAT ARE SO FULL OF GRACE
  • 00:11:53.140 --> 00:11:54.160
  • THERE IS NO TRUTH.
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:55.230
  • THEY JUST WANT EVERYBODY
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:56.280
  • TO BE HAPPY
  • 00:11:56.280 --> 00:11:58.020
  • AND THEY DON'T CARE
  • 00:11:58.020 --> 00:11:59.070
  • WHAT GOES ON.
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.170
  • WE TALKED ABOUT THAT EARLIER,
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:01.200
  • JAMES, THAT THERE'S A LOT
  • 00:12:01.200 --> 00:12:03.000
  • OF THAT IN THE CHURCH TODAY.
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:04.070
  • AND THEN THERE'S OTHERS
  • 00:12:04.070 --> 00:12:05.110
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:12:05.110 --> 00:12:06.120
  • THAT ARE SO FULL OF TRUTH
  • 00:12:06.120 --> 00:12:07.160
  • YOU DON'T WANT
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:08.170
  • TO LISTEN TO THEM
  • 00:12:08.170 --> 00:12:09.180
  • BECAUSE THERE IS NO GRACE.
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:10.230
  • YOU CANNOT BE A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:11.250
  • YOU CANNOT CONDUCT YOURSELF
  • 00:12:11.250 --> 00:12:12.280
  • AS A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:14.000
  • WITHOUT A SPIRIT OF GRACE.
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:15.030
  • SO THE REAL CHALLENGE
  • 00:12:15.030 --> 00:12:16.070
  • FOR ALL OF US WHO SPEAK
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:17.120
  • IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR
  • 00:12:17.120 --> 00:12:18.160
  • IS HOW COULD I BE FAITHFUL
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:19.210
  • TO THE WORD OF GOD AND
  • 00:12:19.210 --> 00:12:21.050
  • TO THE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:22.210
  • IN THIS DECADENT TIME
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:24.090
  • AND STILL SHOW THE LOVE
  • 00:12:24.090 --> 00:12:26.030
  • OF CHRIST IN MY SPIRIT
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.280
  • AS I DO IT, NOT BE ANGRY?
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:30.050
  • I KNOW SOME GUYS
  • 00:12:30.050 --> 00:12:31.070
  • WHO CAN'T PREACH
  • 00:12:31.070 --> 00:12:32.090
  • UNLESS THEY'RE ANGRY.
  • 00:12:32.090 --> 00:12:33.110
  • I DON'T THINK THAT DOES
  • 00:12:33.110 --> 00:12:34.130
  • A WHOLE LOT OF GOOD
  • 00:12:34.130 --> 00:12:35.160
  • FOR THE LORD.
  • 00:12:35.160 --> 00:12:36.180
  • James: THE LORD USED THE VERSE
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:37.190
  • TO CONVICT ME BECAUSE I WAS
  • 00:12:37.190 --> 00:12:38.210
  • PRETTY FORCEFUL, BUT SOMETIMES
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:39.250
  • I WOULD COME ACROSS ANGRY.
  • 00:12:39.250 --> 00:12:40.260
  • I USED TO SAY I WAS SHOUTING
  • 00:12:40.260 --> 00:12:41.270
  • AT MY OWN DEMONS.
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:43.010
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:12:43.010 --> 00:12:44.040
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:12:44.040 --> 00:12:45.070
  • IN THE PROGRAM LATER ABOUT --
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:46.130
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:46.130 --> 00:12:47.150
  • I WAS SCARY. BUT THE POINT IS
  • 00:12:47.150 --> 00:12:48.220
  • AND ONE OF THE VERSES
  • 00:12:49.270 --> 00:12:51.000
  • THAT CONVICTED ME IS:
  • 00:12:51.000 --> 00:12:52.060
  • THE WRATH OF MAN WORKETH NOT
  • 00:12:52.060 --> 00:12:53.120
  • THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:12:53.120 --> 00:12:54.210
  • WE'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:12:54.210 --> 00:12:55.290
  • TO FIX EVERYTHING.
  • 00:12:57.060 --> 00:12:58.130
  • I WANT TO CALL PEOPLE'S
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:12:59.200
  • ATTENTION TO THE WAY
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:00.280
  • YOU BROKE THIS BOOK OUT.
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.020
  • THE FIRST PART,
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:03.050
  • "IS THIS THE END FOR AMERICA?"
  • 00:13:03.050 --> 00:13:04.090
  • AND THE SECOND PART,
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:05.150
  • "IS THIS THE END
  • 00:13:05.150 --> 00:13:06.190
  • FOR THE WORLD?"
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:07.200
  • BUT I'M GOING TO TOUCH ON
  • 00:13:07.200 --> 00:13:08.210
  • ALSO, YOU JUST TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.220
  • THE BLEEDING OF OUR BORDERS;
  • 00:13:09.220 --> 00:13:10.230
  • YOU TOUCHED ON IMMIGRATION.
  • 00:13:10.230 --> 00:13:11.240
  • YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:13:11.240 --> 00:13:12.250
  • THE INCREASE OF INTOLERANCE.
  • 00:13:12.250 --> 00:13:13.260
  • THE MAIN THING THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:13:13.260 --> 00:13:14.270
  • ARE INTOLERANT OF TODAY
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:15.280
  • IS PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:13:15.280 --> 00:13:16.290
  • CONVICTIONS THAT BELIEVE
  • 00:13:16.290 --> 00:13:18.000
  • THERE ARE STANDARDS
  • 00:13:18.000 --> 00:13:19.020
  • THAT ARE RELIABLE.
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:20.040
  • THEY DON'T WANT THAT.
  • 00:13:20.040 --> 00:13:21.070
  • SO THE PEOPLE WHO CALL
  • 00:13:21.070 --> 00:13:22.090
  • FOR TOLERANCE
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:23.110
  • ARE TOTALLY INTOLERANT OF
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:24.140
  • ANYBODY WHO HAS A STANDARD
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:25.180
  • THAT THEY HOLD UP
  • 00:13:25.180 --> 00:13:26.210
  • AND THEY BELIEVE IS WORTHY.
  • 00:13:26.210 --> 00:13:27.250
  • THEN YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:13:27.250 --> 00:13:28.280
  • THE APATHY OF AMERICA
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.010
  • AND THE REMEDY OF REVIVAL.
  • 00:13:30.010 --> 00:13:31.050
  • APATHY IN AMERICA --
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:33.160
  • AND I'VE BEEN MINISTRY NOW
  • 00:13:33.160 --> 00:13:35.050
  • FOR WELL OVER 50 YEARS
  • 00:13:35.050 --> 00:13:37.000
  • AND I'VE SEEN
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:38.090
  • FAR TOO MUCH COMPLACENCY
  • 00:13:38.090 --> 00:13:39.110
  • AMONG CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:40.120
  • IT'S LIKE THEY MAY SHOW UP
  • 00:13:40.120 --> 00:13:41.170
  • AT THE CHURCH AND SOMETIMES
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:43.070
  • THEY DON'T EVEN ACT LIKE
  • 00:13:43.070 --> 00:13:44.100
  • THEY LOVE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:13:44.100 --> 00:13:45.110
  • THERE IS APATHY,
  • 00:13:45.110 --> 00:13:46.120
  • THERE IS INDIFFERENCE,
  • 00:13:46.120 --> 00:13:47.130
  • AND THEN THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:13:47.130 --> 00:13:48.140
  • WITNESSES LIKE YOU WERE
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:49.150
  • TALKING ABOUT AWHILE AGO.
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:50.160
  • HOW DO YOU ADDRESS THAT?
  • 00:13:50.160 --> 00:13:51.180
  • David: WELL,
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:52.210
  • ONE OF THE INTERESTING THINGS
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:53.240
  • ABOUT APATHY, THE WORD IS
  • 00:13:53.240 --> 00:13:54.270
  • IT'S MADE UP OF TWO WORDS:
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.040
  • PATHEOS WHICH MEANS PASSION;
  • 00:13:56.040 --> 00:13:58.030
  • AND THEN THE LITTLE A
  • 00:13:58.030 --> 00:13:59.110
  • IN FRONT OF IT CANCELS IT OUT,
  • 00:13:59.110 --> 00:14:00.220
  • IT MEANS WITHOUT PASSION.
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:03.140
  • AMERICANS WITHOUT PASSION
  • 00:14:03.140 --> 00:14:04.240
  • FOR THEIR FAMILIES,
  • 00:14:04.240 --> 00:14:05.250
  • FOR THEIR CHURCH,
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:06.260
  • FOR THE FREEDOM THAT WE HAVE.
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:10.030
  • WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE PASSION,
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:12.090
  • FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS RIGHT
  • 00:14:15.190 --> 00:14:17.130
  • THE ENEMY WINS.
  • 00:14:17.130 --> 00:14:19.040
  • SO THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:14:19.040 --> 00:14:20.190
  • IN OUR COUNTRY.
  • 00:14:20.190 --> 00:14:21.220
  • MANY PEOPLE FEEL LIKE,
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:22.250
  • WELL, IT IS WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.020
  • I HEAR THIS ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:25.040
  • "IT IS WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:26.220
  • I'M JUST GOING TO LIVE
  • 00:14:26.220 --> 00:14:28.000
  • WITH WHATEVER."
  • 00:14:28.000 --> 00:14:29.050
  • James: THINGS ARE JUST GOING
  • 00:14:29.050 --> 00:14:30.070
  • TO GET WORSE AND WORSE.
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:31.090
  • THAT'S LIKE SAYING,
  • 00:14:31.090 --> 00:14:32.110
  • WELL, YOU'VE GOT PROBLEMS.
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:33.130
  • IT'S GOING TO COME.
  • 00:14:33.130 --> 00:14:34.150
  • MY KIDS ARE GOING TO BE BAD,
  • 00:14:34.150 --> 00:14:35.170
  • MY NEIGHBORS
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:36.190
  • ARE GOING TO BE BAD,
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:37.210
  • MY NEIGHBORHOOD
  • 00:14:37.210 --> 00:14:38.230
  • IS GOING TO BE BAD.
  • 00:14:38.230 --> 00:14:39.250
  • ISN'T THAT NONSENSE?
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:40.270
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE OUR
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:41.290
  • GARDEN WE ARE OVERSEERS OF
  • 00:14:41.290 --> 00:14:43.010
  • TO THE ENEMY,
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:44.040
  • TO THE TRESPASSER.
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:45.070
  • ALL RIGHT, YOU BELIEVE,
  • 00:14:45.070 --> 00:14:46.070
  • AND IT'S HOPEFUL,
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:47.090
  • WE CAN HAVE AN AWAKENING?
  • 00:14:47.090 --> 00:14:48.160
  • WE CAN HAVE REVIVAL.
  • 00:14:48.160 --> 00:14:49.200
  • I BELIEVE
  • 00:14:49.200 --> 00:14:50.230
  • THAT'S OUR ONLY HOPE.
  • 00:14:50.230 --> 00:14:51.260
  • NOW BETTY AND I HAVE
  • 00:14:51.260 --> 00:14:53.010
  • A FIRM CONVICTION THAT
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:54.040
  • THE STAGE IS SET FOR
  • 00:14:54.040 --> 00:14:55.250
  • PERHAPS THE GREATEST
  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:57.020
  • SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:58.070
  • IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:14:59.120
  • BECAUSE NOBODY
  • 00:14:59.120 --> 00:15:00.180
  • COULD HAVE ORCHESTRATED
  • 00:15:00.180 --> 00:15:01.220
  • ALL THAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:02.260
  • AND THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER
  • 00:15:02.260 --> 00:15:04.010
  • TO THE CONFUSION AND THE
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:05.050
  • DISSENSION AND DIVISION AND
  • 00:15:05.050 --> 00:15:06.270
  • THE HOSTILITY AND ANIMOSITY
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:08.220
  • THAT IS PREVAILING,
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:09.240
  • AND THAT IS A MOVE OF GOD
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:11.140
  • AND THE LOVE OF GOD,
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:12.180
  • NOT SCRAPPING TRUTH
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:13.260
  • OR SOUND PRINCIPLES UPON
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:15.190
  • WHICH WE BUILD A SECURE LIFE
  • 00:15:15.190 --> 00:15:17.170
  • AND A MEANINGFUL FUTURE,
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:18.270
  • I BELIEVE THE STAGE IS SET
  • 00:15:18.270 --> 00:15:20.030
  • FOR AN AWAKENING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:21.080
  • PEOPLE ARE SAYING,
  • 00:15:21.080 --> 00:15:22.140
  • "WE'RE FED UP
  • 00:15:22.140 --> 00:15:23.180
  • WITH ALL THIS NONSENSE!
  • 00:15:23.180 --> 00:15:24.220
  • POLITICAL CORRECTNESS,
  • 00:15:24.220 --> 00:15:25.230
  • A BIASED MEDIA
  • 00:15:25.230 --> 00:15:26.240
  • THAT IS MANIPULATING PEOPLE,
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:27.260
  • WE'VE HAD IT!"
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:28.270
  • WE'RE ALL AGREEING ON THAT.
  • 00:15:28.270 --> 00:15:30.020
  • OF ALL OF THAT
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:32.080
  • AND YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:15:32.080 --> 00:15:33.110
  • WHAT TO PUT IN ITS PLACE
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:34.150
  • YOU STILL HAVE GOT A BARREN,
  • 00:15:34.150 --> 00:15:35.200
  • WEED-INFESTED FIELD
  • 00:15:35.200 --> 00:15:36.230
  • RATHER THAN A FRUITFUL FIELD
  • 00:15:36.230 --> 00:15:37.260
  • WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:40.020
  • I SIMPLY THINK
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:41.040
  • THE STAGE IS SET
  • 00:15:41.040 --> 00:15:42.060
  • FOR THE GREATEST AWAKENING
  • 00:15:42.060 --> 00:15:43.080
  • IN HISTORY..
  • 00:15:43.080 --> 00:15:44.100
  • David: IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:45.120
  • THERE IS A CHAPTER...
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:46.140
  • James: BY THE WAY,
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:47.160
  • THIS IS WHAT YOU POINT AT.
  • 00:15:47.160 --> 00:15:48.190
  • NO HOPELESSNESS!
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:49.210
  • NO HOPELESSNESS!
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:50.230
  • David: THERE ARE FIVE
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:51.250
  • GREAT MOVEMENTS OF REVIVAL
  • 00:15:51.250 --> 00:15:52.270
  • IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.000
  • STARTING WITH
  • 00:15:54.000 --> 00:15:55.020
  • THE GREAT AWAKENING
  • 00:15:55.020 --> 00:15:56.020
  • IN THE COLONIAL PERIOD
  • 00:15:56.020 --> 00:15:57.040
  • AND ENDING WITH
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:15:58.060
  • THE JESUS MOVEMENT
  • 00:15:58.060 --> 00:15:59.080
  • THAT I LIVED THROUGH; THAT'S
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:00.120
  • THE ONLY ONE I REMEMBER.
  • 00:16:00.120 --> 00:16:01.150
  • I DON'T REMEMBER
  • 00:16:01.150 --> 00:16:02.170
  • THE OTHER FOUR BUT
  • 00:16:02.170 --> 00:16:03.190
  • I REMEMBER THE JESUS MOVEMENT.
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:04.230
  • James: THOSE CALIFORNIA
  • 00:16:04.230 --> 00:16:05.250
  • MEMORIES RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:16:05.250 --> 00:16:06.270
  • David: I DO!
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:07.290
  • THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT IT
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:09.030
  • IS ALL OF THESE GREAT
  • 00:16:09.030 --> 00:16:10.060
  • MOVEMENTS IN OUR NATION
  • 00:16:10.060 --> 00:16:12.040
  • AND AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 00:16:12.040 --> 00:16:13.080
  • ONE OF THEM WAS A WORLDWIDE
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:14.120
  • REVIVAL STARTING IN WALES,
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:16.060
  • ALL CAME AT A TIME
  • 00:16:16.060 --> 00:16:17.220
  • WHEN EVERYBODY FELT
  • 00:16:17.220 --> 00:16:18.270
  • ABOUT THEIR WORLD
  • 00:16:18.270 --> 00:16:20.090
  • EXACTLY THE WAY WE FEEL
  • 00:16:20.090 --> 00:16:21.100
  • ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:16:21.100 --> 00:16:22.140
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:16:22.140 --> 00:16:23.150
  • IT'S NEVER BEEN
  • 00:16:23.150 --> 00:16:24.150
  • LIKE THIS BEFORE.
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:25.160
  • WE'RE CLEAR AT THE BOTTOM.
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:26.160
  • THERE'S NO HOPE.
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:29.020
  • AND THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:30.090
  • THEY REALIZE, THERE IS HOPE.
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:31.110
  • THERE IS ONLY ONE HOPE.
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:32.150
  • WHEN WE HAVE EXHAUSTED
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.040
  • ALL OF OTHER THINGS
  • 00:16:34.040 --> 00:16:35.070
  • THAT WE TRY,
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:36.150
  • ULTIMATELY WE LOOK TO GOD
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:37.280
  • AND THAT'S WHEN GOD SAYS,
  • 00:16:37.280 --> 00:16:40.140
  • "IF MY PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:41.250
  • WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:43.020
  • WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:44.170
  • AND CONFESS THEIR SINS
  • 00:16:44.170 --> 00:16:46.090
  • THEN I'LL COME."
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:48.060
  • UNFORTUNATELY WE THINK
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:50.110
  • THAT IT'S NEVER BEEN
  • 00:16:50.110 --> 00:16:51.190
  • AS BAD AS IT IS NOW.
  • 00:16:51.190 --> 00:16:52.250
  • IT'S BEEN WORSE
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:54.040
  • THAN IT IS NOW ON AT LEAST
  • 00:16:54.040 --> 00:16:55.220
  • THREE OTHER OCCASIONS
  • 00:16:55.220 --> 00:16:57.050
  • IN THIS NATION.
  • 00:16:57.050 --> 00:16:58.170
  • AND THEN GOD HAS
  • 00:16:58.170 --> 00:17:00.020
  • RAISED UP PRIMARILY
  • 00:17:00.020 --> 00:17:01.100
  • A BUNCH OF YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:17:01.100 --> 00:17:02.210
  • AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:17:02.210 --> 00:17:03.290
  • HAVE BEEN THE CATALYST
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:05.090
  • THAT GOD HAS USED
  • 00:17:05.090 --> 00:17:06.120
  • TO BRING REVIVAL
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:07.150
  • TO THIS NATION.
  • 00:17:07.150 --> 00:17:08.180
  • James: I JUST WANT PEOPLE
  • 00:17:08.180 --> 00:17:09.210
  • LIKE US, AT OUR AGE
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:10.240
  • TO INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:17:10.240 --> 00:17:11.270
  • TO REALIZE THAT
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:13.000
  • THE SKY IS NOT THE LIMIT,
  • 00:17:13.000 --> 00:17:14.080
  • GOD IS THE LIMIT
  • 00:17:14.080 --> 00:17:15.130
  • IN WHAT HE CAN DO.
  • 00:17:15.130 --> 00:17:16.160
  • AND ALL WE DO IS YIELD TO HIM
  • 00:17:16.160 --> 00:17:17.170
  • AND HE CAN WORK THE MIRACLE
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:18.210
  • THAT LITERALLY
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:19.270
  • TRANSFORMS OUR CULTURE
  • 00:17:19.270 --> 00:17:21.000
  • BEFORE OUR EYES IN
  • 00:17:21.000 --> 00:17:22.020
  • A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.040
  • NEHEMIAH BUILT THE WALLS
  • 00:17:23.040 --> 00:17:24.050
  • IN 58 DAYS.
  • 00:17:24.050 --> 00:17:25.060
  • I BELIEVE IF WE'D GET SERIOUS
  • 00:17:25.060 --> 00:17:26.080
  • ABOUT DOING THE WILL OF GOD
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:27.130
  • AND RETURNING TO HIS
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:28.130
  • FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:29.150
  • AND TRUTH
  • 00:17:29.150 --> 00:17:30.210
  • AND WE PUT UP THOSE WALLS
  • 00:17:30.210 --> 00:17:31.230
  • OF PROTECTION,
  • 00:17:31.230 --> 00:17:32.280
  • AND NOT PRISON WALLS
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.030
  • BUT PROTECTION,
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:35.090
  • I BELIEVE THAT WE COULD SEE
  • 00:17:35.090 --> 00:17:36.150
  • A MIRACLE CHANGE
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:37.230
  • IN THIS NATION
  • 00:17:37.230 --> 00:17:39.010
  • IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME
  • 00:17:39.010 --> 00:17:40.090
  • THAT WOULD AMAZE EVERYBODY.
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:41.140
  • YOU'VE WRITTEN THIS BOOK
  • 00:17:41.140 --> 00:17:42.210
  • WITH THAT HOPE.
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:43.250
  • IT IS IN THE BOOKSTORES.
  • 00:17:43.250 --> 00:17:45.020
  • YOU CAN GET IT ONLINE
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.140
  • AND FOR ALL OF YOU
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:47.250
  • IN THE AUDIENCE,
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:49.040
  • WE HAVE A COPY
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:50.080
  • FOR EVERY ONE OF YOU HERE.
  • 00:17:50.080 --> 00:17:51.140
  • DON'T YOU APPRECIATE THE FACT
  • 00:17:51.140 --> 00:17:52.200
  • THAT THOMAS NELSON SAYS
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:53.250
  • WE WANT YOU TO TAKE IT HOME?
  • 00:17:53.250 --> 00:17:55.010
  • HERE'S WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO.
  • 00:17:55.010 --> 00:17:56.050
  • I WANT YOU TO LOOK IN
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:58.140
  • AND I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:17:59.240
  • A LEGITIMATE NEED
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.020
  • THAT LOVE AND COMPASSION
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:02.090
  • EFFECTIVELY MEETS
  • 00:18:02.090 --> 00:18:04.060
  • AND CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:18:04.060 --> 00:18:05.080
  • HERE'S WHAT I WANT YOU
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:06.120
  • TO STOP AND ASK:
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:08.090
  • CAN I BE A PART
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:09.170
  • OF THAT MIRACLE?
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:10.260
  • YES, YOU CAN.
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:12.030
  • RIGHT NOW WE'RE TRYING
  • 00:18:12.030 --> 00:18:13.080
  • TO FEED A LOT OF HUNGRY KIDS,
  • 00:18:13.080 --> 00:18:14.220
  • 400.000 OF THEM. THAT'S A LOT!
  • 00:18:14.220 --> 00:18:16.190
  • AND THEY'RE DESPERATE.
