  • - WE DON'T REALLY NEED TO SEE ANGELS AS LITTLE CUDDLY CHERUBS
  • 00:00:07.130 --> 00:00:10.160
  • OR A FAIRY GODMOTHER OR A DISNEY PRINCESS.
  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:13.230
  • THESE ARE POWERFUL BEINGS
  • 00:00:13.260 --> 00:00:16.090
  • CREATED BY GOD.
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:18.230
  • I TRY TO DECONSTRUCT SOME OF THE MYTHS ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:00:18.260 --> 00:00:22.010
  • PEOPLE THINK OH, DO PEOPLE DIE AND BECOME ANGELS?
  • 00:00:22.040 --> 00:00:25.000
  • OR IS MY LITTLE BABY IN HEAVEN NOW AN ANGEL?
  • 00:00:25.030 --> 00:00:28.280
  • Announcer: JACK GRAHAM ANSWERS QUESTIONS ABOUT ANGELS:
  • 00:00:29.010 --> 00:00:31.050
  • WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY DO,
  • 00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:33.050
  • AND WHY IT MATTERS -- NEXT!
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:36.030
  • 00:00:41.100 --> 00:00:47.150
  • Betty: THANK YOU SO MUCH
  • 00:00:55.130 --> 00:00:58.130
  • FOR JOINING US ON LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:00:59.200
  • I'M BETTY AND THIS IS JAMES.
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:01.200
  • James: WELL, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:01:01.200 --> 00:01:02.240
  • SOMEBODY OUT HERE HOLLERING.
  • 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:03.260
  • IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN FOR ME
  • 00:01:05.000 --> 00:01:06.020
  • OR FOR... MAYBE BETTY.
  • 00:01:06.020 --> 00:01:07.140
  • BUT JACK GRAHAM IS WITH US.
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:09.110
  • I WANT TO HOLD THIS UP.
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:10.210
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN
  • 00:01:10.210 --> 00:01:11.220
  • GET A CLOSE-UP OF IT
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:12.240
  • BUT THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:13.290
  • A BEAUTIFUL COVER.
  • 00:01:13.290 --> 00:01:15.150
  • BUT IT'S ON
  • 00:01:15.150 --> 00:01:17.010
  • AN INCREDIBLE SUBJECT;
  • 00:01:17.010 --> 00:01:18.070
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:19.080
  • NOW I WANT YOU TO LISTEN
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:20.080
  • TO JUST THESE LITTLE
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:21.130
  • INTRODUCTORY PHRASES:
  • 00:01:21.130 --> 00:01:23.250
  • WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY DO.
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:26.070
  • AND THEN THIS:
  • 00:01:26.070 --> 00:01:27.280
  • WHY IT MATTERS.
  • 00:01:27.280 --> 00:01:29.210
  • WHY DO ANGELS MATTER?
  • 00:01:29.210 --> 00:01:31.280
  • JACK GRAHAM IS THE PASTOR
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:34.060
  • OF PRESTONWOOD CHURCH AND
  • 00:01:34.060 --> 00:01:37.030
  • IT IS TRULY A GREAT CHURCH.
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:39.090
  • I JUST TOLD THE PEOPLE HERE
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:41.010
  • TO GO TO THEIR CHRISTMAS
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:42.120
  • PAGEANT EVERY DECEMBER.
  • 00:01:42.120 --> 00:01:44.090
  • I'M TELLING YOU WHATEVER
  • 00:01:44.090 --> 00:01:45.180
  • IT TAKES TO GET IN IT, GO.
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:46.240
  • YOU WILL BE GRATEFUL.
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:48.130
  • YOU WILL SEE THE LORD
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:49.250
  • HIGH AND LIFTED UP.
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.210
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME
  • 00:01:51.210 --> 00:01:53.060
  • PASTOR JACK GRAHAM
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:54.080
  • TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:55.130
  • Jack: THANK YOU!
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:57.200
  • ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL.
  • 00:01:57.200 --> 00:01:58.250
  • James: I AM REALLY INTERESTED
  • 00:01:58.250 --> 00:02:00.150
  • AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:02:00.150 --> 00:02:02.000
  • LET ME JUST READ --
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:03.030
  • THIS IS MAX LUCADO.
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:05.080
  • AND BOY HAS HE IMPACTED
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:06.200
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:02:06.200 --> 00:02:07.290
  • AND WRITTEN A LOT OF BOOKS
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.060
  • AND PEOPLE HAVE READ THEM.
  • 00:02:09.060 --> 00:02:10.240
  • "I CONSIDER JACK GRAHAM
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:12.230
  • TO BE A KEY VOICE
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:14.030
  • FOR THE CHURCH
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.180
  • IN THESE TURBULENT DAYS.
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.170
  • HIS COMMITMENT TO CHRIST
  • 00:02:17.170 --> 00:02:19.040
  • IS UNSHAKABLE."
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:20.120
  • AND INDEED IT IS.
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:21.240
  • "HIS CLEAR TEACHING
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.040
  • IS INSPIRING."
  • 00:02:23.040 --> 00:02:24.170
  • IF YOU'VE NOT HEARD HIM,
  • 00:02:24.170 --> 00:02:26.020
  • HE'S ON TELEVISION: FIND HIM
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.290
  • OR FIND HIM ONLINE.
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:29.230
  • "AND HIS LEADERSHIP
  • 00:02:29.230 --> 00:02:31.120
  • IS DESPERATELY NEEDED."
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:33.090
  • I THINK IN THE WHOLE CHURCH,
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:34.270
  • I THINK IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:37.280
  • AND THE IMPACT
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:39.080
  • AROUND THE WORLD --
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:40.100
  • NOW THAT'S WHAT I THINK.
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:41.170
  • "THIS BOOK IS YET
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:42.240
  • ANOTHER VALUABLE CONTRIBUTION
  • 00:02:42.240 --> 00:02:44.070
  • FROM A DEAR SAINT."
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:47.110
  • I KNOW YOU APPRECIATE THAT.
  • 00:02:47.110 --> 00:02:48.230
  • I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:52.010
  • SOMETIMES PREACHERS
  • 00:02:52.010 --> 00:02:53.110
  • GET SOMETHING ON THEIR HEART
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:54.130
  • AND SO A PUBLISHER
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:55.140
  • WILL TALK TO THEM
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:56.190
  • AND THE PASTOR OR THE PREACHER
  • 00:02:56.190 --> 00:02:57.250
  • OR THE WRITER WOULD REALLY
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:02:58.280
  • LIKE TO SEE THIS GET OUT.
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:00.020
  • YOU WERE ACTUALLY APPROACHED
  • 00:03:00.020 --> 00:03:02.150
  • ABOUT ANGELS; RIGHT?
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.080
  • Jack: I KIND OF RESISTED.
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:05.140
  • I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:06.180
  • BESIDES ANGELS."
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:08.240
  • BUT I HAD A CONVERSATION
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:10.070
  • WITH A DEAR FRIEND
  • 00:03:10.070 --> 00:03:11.190
  • WHO JUST REMINDED ME
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:12.270
  • THAT THE PURPOSE OF ANGELS
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:14.260
  • TO JESUS.
  • 00:03:16.130 --> 00:03:17.210
  • ANGELS ALWAYS STEP BACK AND
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:19.100
  • GIVE CENTER STAGE TO JESUS.
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:21.150
  • AND THE MORE YOU STUDY ANGELS,
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:24.000
  • THE MORE YOU SEE THE GRANDEUR,
  • 00:03:24.000 --> 00:03:25.110
  • THE GLORY, THE GREATNESS,
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:26.200
  • THE MAJESTY OF GOD.
  • 00:03:26.200 --> 00:03:28.090
  • THE QUESTION IS
  • 00:03:28.090 --> 00:03:29.130
  • WHY WOULD YOU STUDY ANGELS?
  • 00:03:29.130 --> 00:03:30.140
  • WHY WOULD IT MATTER?
  • 00:03:30.140 --> 00:03:31.190
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU SEE
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:32.250
  • THE ANGELS
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:34.040
  • AND WHAT THE ANGELS DO
  • 00:03:34.040 --> 00:03:35.170
  • YOU SEE THE GLORY OF GOD
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:37.000
  • IN WAYS THAT
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:38.090
  • I'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:03:38.090 --> 00:03:40.080
  • JUST THE FACT THAT
  • 00:03:40.080 --> 00:03:41.160
  • THERE ARE OVER 290,
  • 00:03:41.160 --> 00:03:44.110
  • RIGHT AT 300 REFERENCES
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:46.060
  • TO ANGELS IN THE BIBLE;
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:48.020
  • SO THE BIBLE IS FULL OF IT,
  • 00:03:48.020 --> 00:03:49.080
  • ESPECIALLY AROUND
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:50.260
  • THE TIME OF CHRIST.
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:52.160
  • James: THEY ANNOUNCED
  • 00:03:52.160 --> 00:03:53.220
  • THE BIRTH; DIDN'T THEY?
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:55.000
  • Jack: THERE ARE MORE
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:56.150
  • ABOUT ANGELS
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:57.210
  • AROUND THE TIME OF JESUS
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:03:58.240
  • AND HE SPOKE ABOUT IT
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:03:59.270
  • MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:01.010
  • BECAUSE HE KNOWS THEM
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:02.060
  • OF COURSE SO VERY WELL.
  • 00:04:02.060 --> 00:04:03.070
  • BUT YES, FROM MARY;
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:04.090
  • THE ANGELS ANNOUNCING TO MARY
  • 00:04:04.090 --> 00:04:05.140
  • THE BIRTH AND TO JOSEPH
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:06.170
  • IN THE DREAM; TO THE ANGELS
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:07.220
  • OUTSIDE OF BETHLEHEM
  • 00:04:07.220 --> 00:04:09.090
  • TO THE ANGEL
  • 00:04:09.090 --> 00:04:10.230
  • THAT SPOKE TO JOSEPH.
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:12.000
  • SAID,
  • 00:04:12.000 --> 00:04:13.040
  • "TAKE THE CHILD TO EGYPT"
  • 00:04:13.040 --> 00:04:14.070
  • AND THEN TOLD HIM WHEN TO
  • 00:04:14.070 --> 00:04:15.110
  • COME BACK WITH THE CHILD,
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:16.140
  • WHEN EVERYTHING WAS SAFE.
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:17.180
  • AND THEN WHEN JESUS
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:18.210
  • WAS TEMPTED.
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:19.220
  • AFTER THE BAPTISM,
  • 00:04:19.220 --> 00:04:20.250
  • HE GOES INTO THE WILDERNESS
  • 00:04:20.250 --> 00:04:21.260
  • AND HE STRUGGLES WITH SATAN;
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.040
  • THIS POWERFUL WARFARE
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:24.210
  • THAT TAKES PLACE
  • 00:04:24.210 --> 00:04:25.280
  • AND HE OVERCOMES
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:27.040
  • WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:28.090
  • BUT HE'S EXHAUSTED;
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:29.150
  • 40 DAYS WITHOUT FOOD AND WATER
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:31.230
  • AND THE ANGELS COME
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:33.200
  • AND MINISTER TO HIM.
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:34.230
  • SO JESUS KNOWS THE ANGELS WELL
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:37.030
  • AND HE SPOKE OF ANGELS
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:38.180
  • OFTEN IN HIS TEACHING.
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:40.020
  • WHEN YOU GET TO
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:41.080
  • THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:04:41.080 --> 00:04:42.090
  • WHEN HE IS POURING OUT SWEAT
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:43.120
  • DROPS OF BLOOD,
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:45.020
  • PREPARING HIMSELF
  • 00:04:45.020 --> 00:04:46.170
  • FOR THE CROSS
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:47.220
  • AND LAYING HIS LIFE DOWN,
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:48.290
  • SURRENDERING HIS LIFE
  • 00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:50.010
  • TO THE WILL OF THE FATHER.
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:51.080
  • HE'S ALREADY SO WEAKENED
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:53.020
  • AT THIS POINT PHYSICALLY;
  • 00:04:53.020 --> 00:04:54.130
  • BUT MAINLY EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:04:54.130 --> 00:04:56.060
  • WHAT WAS IN THAT CUP
  • 00:04:56.060 --> 00:04:57.140
  • THAT HE WAS ABOUT TO DRINK.
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:59.280
  • THE BIBLE SAYS AN ANGEL CAME
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:01.260
  • AND MINISTERED TO HIM.
  • 00:05:01.260 --> 00:05:03.050
  • James: ISN'T THAT GREAT?
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:04.110
  • TO THINK THAT JESUS WOULD
  • 00:05:04.110 --> 00:05:05.100
  • HAVE THAT -- SIGNIFICANT!
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:06.110
  • Jack: AND THEN OF COURSE,
  • 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:07.120
  • JESUS SAID ON ONE OCCASION
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:08.230
  • THAT HE COULD CALL
  • 00:05:08.230 --> 00:05:10.140
  • 70.000 LEGIONNAIRES
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:12.090
  • TO COME AND DELIVER HIM.
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:15.140
  • AT THE CROSS,
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:16.260
  • WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.000
  • HE COULD HAVE SPOKEN
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.010
  • AND SAID THE WORD
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:20.020
  • AND THE ANGELS WOULD HAVE COME
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:21.080
  • AND DESTROYED THE ENEMY.
  • 00:05:21.080 --> 00:05:22.120
  • James: IT'S A GREAT SONG:
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:23.160
  • HE COULD HAVE CALLED
  • 00:05:23.160 --> 00:05:24.180
  • 10.000 ANGELS! MORE!
  • 00:05:24.180 --> 00:05:25.220
  • Jack: BUT HE BLED AND HE DIED
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:26.220
  • FOR YOU AND FOR ME.
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:27.250
  • AND THEN HE DIES,
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.110
  • AND THEN HE IS IN THE TOMB,
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:30.180
  • AND THEN THE ANGEL
  • 00:05:30.180 --> 00:05:31.220
  • ROLLS THE STONE AWAY.
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:32.270
  • AND THEN THE ANGEL
  • 00:05:32.270 --> 00:05:34.010
  • TELLS THE LADIES THAT
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:35.040
  • HE'S NOT HERE, HE'S RISEN.
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:36.100
  • THEN THE ANGEL
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:37.180
  • ASCENDS WITH HIM AND SAYS,
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:38.240
  • "HE'S COMING BACK."
  • 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:40.000
  • THEN WHEN HE DOES COME BACK
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:41.030
  • THE ANGELS ARE
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:42.040
  • COMING WITH HIM;
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:43.050
  • THE SHOUT AND THE VOICE
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:44.230
  • OF THE ARCHANGEL
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:46.010
  • AND THE TRUMP OF GOD.
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:47.090
  • AND THEN IN HEAVEN
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:48.130
  • HE'S WORSHIPPED BY ANGELS,
  • 00:05:48.130 --> 00:05:49.150
  • "WORTHY IS THE LAMB."
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:52.220
  • YOU CAN HEAR ALMOST
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:54.210
  • THE BRUSH OF ANGEL WINGS
  • 00:05:54.210 --> 00:05:55.290
  • EVERY TIME YOU TURN
  • 00:05:55.290 --> 00:05:57.040
  • James: I THINK I HEAR PEOPLE
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:05:59.100
  • SITTING OUT HERE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:00.150
  • SAYING, AND PROBABLY,
  • 00:06:00.150 --> 00:06:01.210
  • PRESTONWOOD, "HOW DO WE
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:02.220
  • GET SOME OF THOSE AROUND US?
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:03.240
  • Betty: THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:06.000
  • I WANT TO KNOW.
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:07.050
  • TELL US HOW IMPORTANT IT IS
  • 00:06:07.050 --> 00:06:08.140
  • FOR US TO BE AWARE
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:09.220
  • OF ANGELS TODAY?
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:10.290
  • Jack: VERY IMPORTANT!
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:12.070
  • KNOWING FIRST OF ALL
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:13.140
  • HOW THEY INSPIRE US
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:15.090
  • BECAUSE AS I VIEW
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:16.230
  • THE ROLE OF ANGELS
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:17.270
  • IT IS FIRST
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:19.040
  • AS WORSHIPPERS OF GOD;
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:20.250
  • 24/7 THEY ARE WORSHIPPING GOD,
  • 00:06:20.250 --> 00:06:23.090
  • AROUND THE THRONE OF GOD
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:24.190
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:24.190 --> 00:06:25.210
  • THIS MAGNIFICENT --
  • 00:06:25.210 --> 00:06:26.280
  • AND WE DON'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:06:26.280 --> 00:06:28.160
  • HOW MANY THERE ARE.
  • 00:06:28.160 --> 00:06:29.230
  • James: SHOULD THAT INSPIRE US
  • 00:06:29.230 --> 00:06:30.280
  • AS BELIEVERS?
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:32.010
  • Jack: BECAUSE WE'RE GOING
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:33.050
  • TO JOIN THE ANGELS IN SINGING
  • 00:06:33.050 --> 00:06:34.110
  • THE SONGS OF SALVATION.
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:35.150
  • THEY SANG SONGS OF PRAISE.
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:37.070
  • WE'RE GOING TO JOIN
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:38.160
  • THE ANGEL BAND IN SINGING.
  • 00:06:38.160 --> 00:06:40.270
  • James: WE'VE GOT A SONG
  • 00:06:40.270 --> 00:06:41.290
  • TO SING THEY DON'T HAVE;
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:43.020
  • DON'T WE?
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:44.050
  • Jack: WE DO! WE HAVE
  • 00:06:44.050 --> 00:06:45.070
  • THE SONG OF REDEMPTION,
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:47.140
  • OF COURSE.
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:48.160
  • BUT TO THINK
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:49.170
  • THAT THEY ARE WORSHIPPERS.
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:50.280
  • I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:54.210
  • IN OUR STUDY HERE
  • 00:06:54.210 --> 00:06:55.280
  • IS JUST HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.240
  • TO DESCRIBE THE CHARACTER
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:06:59.220
  • AND THE GREATNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:01.230
  • THEN I SAY
  • 00:07:01.230 --> 00:07:02.290
  • ANGELS ARE WITNESSES.
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:04.090
  • THEY ALWAYS COME
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:05.200
  • WITH A MESSAGE.
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:06.240
  • THE VERY WORD ANGEL
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.040
  • MEANS MESSENGER.
  • 00:07:08.040 --> 00:07:09.070
  • SO IN THAT SENSE
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:10.120
  • THEY ARE ALWAYS DELIVERING
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:11.130
  • IMPORTANT MESSAGES TO PEOPLE
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:13.110
  • WHETHER IT IS THE ANNOUNCEMENT
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:14.210
  • OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST OR
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:16.020
  • AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:07:16.020 --> 00:07:17.140
  • WE OFTEN SEE ANGELS
  • 00:07:17.140 --> 00:07:18.250
  • AS EXECUTORS OF JUDGMENT,
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:22.020
  • ESPECIALLY IN
  • 00:07:22.020 --> 00:07:23.060
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:24.060
  • SO WE DON'T REALLY NEED
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:25.200
  • TO SEE ANGELS
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:27.070
  • AS A LITTLE CUDDLY CHERUB
  • 00:07:27.070 --> 00:07:28.080
  • OR A FAIRY GODMOTHER
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:29.180
  • OR A DISNEY PRINCESS.
  • 00:07:29.180 --> 00:07:31.060
  • THESE ARE POWERFUL BEINGS
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:33.200
  • CREATED BY GOD.
  • 00:07:33.200 --> 00:07:36.020
  • I TRY TO DECONSTRUCT SOME
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:37.120
  • OF THE MYTHS ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:38.250
  • PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:40.140
  • OH, DO PEOPLE DIE
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:41.190
  • AND BECOME ANGELS?
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:42.210
  • OR IS MY LITTLE BABY IN HEAVEN
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:44.280
  • NOW AN ANGEL?
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.220
  • CERTAINLY THERE ARE GREAT
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:48.010
  • PROMISES REGARDING HEAVEN
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:49.080
  • FOR THE BELIEVER
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:50.100
  • BUT WE DON'T TURN INTO ANGELS.
  • 00:07:50.100 --> 00:07:51.130
  • ANGELS ARE A UNIQUE
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:53.000
  • DISTINCT CREATION BY GOD
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:55.070
  • FOR A PURPOSE.
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:56.260
  • THEY EXISTED
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:58.050
  • BEFORE HUMANKIND EXISTED.
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:07:59.070
  • BEFORE CREATION THE ANGELS
  • 00:07:59.070 --> 00:08:00.150
  • WERE CREATED BY GOD
  • 00:08:00.150 --> 00:08:03.050
  • IN ETERNITY PAST.
  • 00:08:04.100 --> 00:08:07.100
  • IN FACT JOB TELLS US
  • 00:08:07.100 --> 00:08:08.270
  • WHEN JOB IS ARGUING
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:10.020
  • WITH THE LORD
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:11.110
  • ABOUT HIS CONDITION
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:12.280
  • AND GOD USES SOME SARCASM
  • 00:08:12.280 --> 00:08:14.160
  • WITH HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.280
  • "WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I CREATED
  • 00:08:15.280 --> 00:08:17.060
  • ALL OF THE HEAVENS
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:18.170
  • AND THE EARTH?
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:19.220
  • AND WHERE WERE YOU, JOB,
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:20.240
  • WHEN THE MORNING ANGELS SANG
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:21.290
  • AND THE SONS OF GOD?"
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:23.030
  • AND HE WAS TALKING
  • 00:08:23.030 --> 00:08:24.060
  • ABOUT THOSE ANGELS
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:25.100
  • THAT WERE PRESENT AT CREATION.
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:26.110
  • OF COURSE,
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:27.150
  • THEY'RE GOING TO BE PRESENT
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:28.170
  • IN THE NEW CREATION
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:29.190
  • WHEN WE WORSHIP GOD.
  • 00:08:29.190 --> 00:08:31.220
  • BUT DO THEY INTERACT
  • 00:08:31.220 --> 00:08:33.230
  • AND DO THEY ENGAGE US TODAY?
  • 00:08:33.230 --> 00:08:35.220
  • WE KNOW THEY ARE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:08:35.220 --> 00:08:37.000
  • WHAT I DO IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:38.060
  • IS TAKE ANGEL APPEARANCES,
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:40.240
  • TIMES IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:42.140
  • WHEN THEY SHOWED UP
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:43.180
  • FOR A DISTINCT PURPOSE
  • 00:08:43.180 --> 00:08:44.220
  • TO DELIVER SOMEONE,
  • 00:08:44.220 --> 00:08:46.010
  • WHETHER IT WAS DANIEL
  • 00:08:46.010 --> 00:08:47.090
  • BEING DELIVERED
  • 00:08:47.090 --> 00:08:48.100
  • OUT OF THE LION'S DEN.
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:49.120
  • James: DID THEY
  • 00:08:49.120 --> 00:08:50.140
  • COMFORT SOMETIMES?
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:51.150
  • Jack: TO BRING COMFORT
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:52.150
  • TO PEOPLE LIKE PAUL
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:53.200
  • WHEN HE WAS GOING DOWN
  • 00:08:53.200 --> 00:08:54.270
  • IN THAT SHIPWRECK
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:55.290
  • AND GOD ENCOURAGED HIM
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:57.020
  • BUT HE SENT AN ANGEL TO DO IT.
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:58.250
  • DELIVERING PEOPLE FROM DEATH
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:01.020
  • LIKE THE APOSTLES
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:02.100
  • WHO WERE IN JAIL.
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:03.120
  • James: I ACTUALLY STOOD
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:04.190
  • AND HIS MOM, MOMMA CASH,
  • 00:09:05.220 --> 00:09:07.280
  • AND JOHNNIE TOLD ME THIS STORY
  • 00:09:08.000 --> 00:09:11.000
  • BUT HE SAID, "I WANT YOU
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.150
  • JACK CASH, HIS BROTHER
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:15.090
  • WAS GOING TO BE A PREACHER
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:16.150
  • AND WAS CUT
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:17.210
  • WITH A CIRCLE SAW IN SHOP,
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:19.280
  • AND HE'S DYING.
  • 00:09:19.280 --> 00:09:21.140
  • THEY CAN'T EVEN
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:22.230
  • GIVE HIM WATER.
  • 00:09:22.230 --> 00:09:24.010
  • THIS IS SO MOVING TO JOHNNIE
  • 00:09:24.010 --> 00:09:25.080
  • BECAUSE HE TOLD ME
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:26.110
  • IT AFFECTED HIM
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:27.140
  • HIS WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:28.160
  • BY THE WAY,
  • 00:09:28.160 --> 00:09:29.180
  • GOD DID SOME GREAT WORK
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:30.200
  • IN JOHNNY CASH'S LIFE.
  • 00:09:30.200 --> 00:09:31.220
  • NOT ONLY DELIVERED HIM
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:32.240
  • FROM THE DRUGS BUT
  • 00:09:32.240 --> 00:09:33.260
  • JUST SO MUCH IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:09:33.260 --> 00:09:35.040
  • HE SAID, "JAMES."
  • 00:09:35.040 --> 00:09:36.100
  • AND THEN MOMMA CASH IS HERE
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:37.130
  • SO HE SAID, "MOMMA TELL HIM."
  • 00:09:37.130 --> 00:09:38.270
  • THEY'RE IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM
  • 00:09:38.270 --> 00:09:40.090
  • AND JACK SUDDENLY LOOKED UP
  • 00:09:40.090 --> 00:09:41.150
  • IN THE CORNER OF THE ROOM.
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:42.250
  • HE SAID, "DO YOU SEE THEM?
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.180
  • DON'T YOU SEE THEM?"
  • 00:09:44.180 --> 00:09:45.230
  • AND THEY WERE LOOKING AROUND;
  • 00:09:45.230 --> 00:09:47.060
  • MOMMA CASH AND JOHNNIE
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:48.110
  • WERE LOOKING.
  • 00:09:48.110 --> 00:09:49.160
  • "DON'T YOU SEE THEM?"
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:50.210
  • AND THEY SAID, "WHAT SON?"
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:52.050
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:53.100
  • "IT'S THE ANGELS, MOM.
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:54.150
  • THEY'RE COMING."
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:09:55.200
  • AND HE LEFT RIGHT LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:55.200 --> 00:09:58.050
  • Jack: I'VE HEARD STORIES
  • 00:09:58.050 --> 00:09:59.050
  • LIKE THAT THROUGH THE YEARS.
  • 00:09:59.050 --> 00:10:00.070
  • MY OWN GRANDFATHER
  • 00:10:00.070 --> 00:10:01.080
  • AS HE WAS DYING SAID SOMETHING
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:03.040
  • SIMILAR TO THAT.
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:04.170
  • THAT IS ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:05.210
  • THINGS ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:10:05.210 --> 00:10:06.250
  • JESUS TOLD THAT STORY
  • 00:10:06.250 --> 00:10:08.010
  • OF THE RICH MAN AND LAZARUS
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:09.180
  • AND SAID, "WHEN THE
  • 00:10:09.180 --> 00:10:11.070
  • THE ANGELS CARRIED HIM HOME."
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:14.070
  • IT'S A GREAT OLD SONG:
  • 00:10:14.070 --> 00:10:15.090
  • COME ANGEL BAND TO CARRY ME.
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:18.140
  • WE KNOW
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:19.210
  • AND HE'S GOING
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:21.200
  • TO CARRY US HOME.
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:22.260
  • HE SAID, "I'LL COME."
  • 00:10:22.260 --> 00:10:23.290
  • BUT ANGELS ARE GOING
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:25.020
  • TO ATTEND US.
  • 00:10:25.020 --> 00:10:26.070
  • I'VE GOT STORIES,
  • 00:10:26.070 --> 00:10:27.080
  • NOT ONLY BIBLICAL STORIES,
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:28.100
  • AND I TRIED TO MAKE THIS BOOK
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:30.070
  • ABOUT REAL LIFE
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:31.190
  • AND REAL STORIES.
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:32.220
  • James: HAVE YOU EVER SEEN
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:33.220
  • AN ANGEL?
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:34.230
  • Jack: I'VE NEVER SEEN
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:35.270
  • AN ANGEL.
  • 00:10:35.270 --> 00:10:37.010
  • I'VE FELT ANGELIC ACTIVITY,
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:38.020
  • FOR SURE.
  • 00:10:38.020 --> 00:10:39.050
  • I'VE SENSED
  • 00:10:39.050 --> 00:10:40.120
  • A PRESENCE OF ANGELS.
  • 00:10:40.120 --> 00:10:41.180
  • I ACTUALLY FELL OUT OF THE CAR
  • 00:10:41.180 --> 00:10:42.210
  • WHEN I WAS THREE YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:10:42.210 --> 00:10:43.220
  • I OPENED THE DOOR; IT WAS
  • 00:10:43.220 --> 00:10:44.240
  • GOING 40-50 MILES AN HOUR.
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:45.260
  • I OPENED THE DOOR.
  • 00:10:45.260 --> 00:10:46.270
  • I WAS TRYING TO...
  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:48.020
  • MY MOTHER HAD TOLD ME NOT
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:49.060
  • TO THROW AWAY... SHE WANTED
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:50.090
  • ME ALWAYS TO EAT THAT CRUST
  • 00:10:50.090 --> 00:10:51.110
  • AND I NEVER LIKED THE CRUST.
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:52.120
  • I'D ALWAYS PEEL IT OFF.
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:53.130
  • SO I HAD IT IN MY HAND
  • 00:10:53.130 --> 00:10:54.190
  • AND I'M THINKING WHAT AM
  • 00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:55.180
  • I GOING TO DO WITH THIS?
  • 00:10:55.180 --> 00:10:56.230
  • SO I'M THINKING
  • 00:10:56.230 --> 00:10:57.240
  • IN MY THREE YEAR OLD MIND,
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:10:58.270
  • I'M GOING TO THROW IT
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:10:59.290
  • OUT THE WINDOW, SO I'M GOING
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:01.050
  • TO ROLL THE WINDOW DOWN BUT
  • 00:11:01.050 --> 00:11:02.070
  • I GOT A HOLD OF THE DOOR AND
  • 00:11:02.070 --> 00:11:03.180
  • IT JUST SUCKED ME RIGHT OUT
  • 00:11:03.180 --> 00:11:04.240
  • BEFORE SHE COULD SLOW DOWN.
  • 00:11:04.240 --> 00:11:07.010
  • I REMEMBER NOW;
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:08.100
  • I REMEMBER THINKING
  • 00:11:08.100 --> 00:11:10.190
  • AS A LITTLE THREE YEAR OLD,
  • 00:11:10.190 --> 00:11:12.000
  • IT SEEMED LIKE FOREVER
  • 00:11:12.000 --> 00:11:13.150
  • BEFORE I HIT THE GROUND
  • 00:11:13.150 --> 00:11:14.170
  • THAT I SAID,
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:15.220
  • "YOU KNOW I COULD BE DEAD."
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:16.290
  • I REMEMBER A SOFT LANDING.
  • 00:11:16.290 --> 00:11:19.060
  • I'VE GOT A LITTLE SCAR HERE
  • 00:11:19.060 --> 00:11:20.160
  • AND THAT'S IT.
  • 00:11:20.160 --> 00:11:22.090
  • I'M CONVINCED TO THIS DAY
  • 00:11:22.090 --> 00:11:23.090
  • THAT SOMEONE PROTECTED ME;
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:27.010
  • WHAT I KNOW
  • 00:11:27.010 --> 00:11:28.270
  • IS IT'S THE ANGELS.
  • 00:11:28.270 --> 00:11:30.020
  • DR. KEN COOPER,
  • 00:11:30.020 --> 00:11:31.030
  • WHO IS IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:11:31.030 --> 00:11:32.040
  • THE FATHER OF AEROBICS,
  • 00:11:32.040 --> 00:11:33.050
  • AN INCREDIBLE PHYSICIAN,
  • 00:11:33.050 --> 00:11:35.060
  • THE COOPER CLINIC;
  • 00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:36.110
  • OBVIOUSLY, A MAN
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:38.010
  • NOT GIVEN TO WILD STORIES
  • 00:11:38.010 --> 00:11:39.210
  • AND YET HE WAS ON
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:40.290
  • A CLIMBING EXPEDITION
  • 00:11:40.290 --> 00:11:42.020
  • IN EAST AFRICA, TANZANIA.
  • 00:11:42.040 --> 00:11:45.040
  • THEY WERE GOING TO CLIMB
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:46.110
  • MOUNT KILIMANJARO.
  • 00:11:46.110 --> 00:11:47.190
  • AND HE ENDS UP ILLEGALLY
  • 00:11:47.190 --> 00:11:49.160
  • IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:11:49.160 --> 00:11:50.230
  • IT IS KIND OF A LONG STORY
  • 00:11:50.230 --> 00:11:51.230
  • AND HE GETS CALLED AWAY
  • 00:11:51.230 --> 00:11:52.270
  • FOR AN EMERGENCY.
  • 00:11:52.270 --> 00:11:54.130
  • HE REALIZES AS THE CAR
  • 00:11:54.130 --> 00:11:55.290
  • IS TAKING HIM BACK
  • 00:11:55.290 --> 00:11:57.040
  • TO THE AIRPORT
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:11:58.050
  • THAT HE'S ILLEGAL.
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:11:59.070
  • HE'S THINKING
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.130
  • I'M GOING INTO A JAIL.
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:01.180
  • I'M GOING TO...
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:02.200
  • HE'S SWEATING BB'S
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:04.130
  • AT THIS POINT.
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:05.260
  • HE'S REALLY NERVOUS BECAUSE
  • 00:12:05.260 --> 00:12:07.020
  • THEY DON'T FOOL AROUND
  • 00:12:07.020 --> 00:12:08.040
  • OVER THERE IF YOU'RE IN
  • 00:12:08.040 --> 00:12:09.110
  • THEIR COUNTRY ILLEGAL.
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:10.140
  • SO HE JUST PRAYED AND
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:11.190
  • ASKED THE LORD TO HELP HIM.
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:12.240
  • WHEN HE GOT TO THE AIRPORT
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:14.000
  • SOMEONE WALKED UP TO HIM,
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:15.170
  • A FEMALE AND SAID,
  • 00:12:15.170 --> 00:12:17.120
  • "DR. COOPER, FOLLOW ME."
  • 00:12:17.120 --> 00:12:19.150
  • HE SAID HE FOLLOWED
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:20.200
  • THIS PERSON THROUGH
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:21.290
  • RIGHT THROUGH PASSPORT.
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:23.060
  • THE PASSPORT CONTROL PEOPLE
  • 00:12:23.060 --> 00:12:24.120
  • DIDN'T EVEN SEE.
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:25.220
  • SHE PUT IT OUT,
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:27.010
  • THEY STAMPED IT.
  • 00:12:27.010 --> 00:12:28.010
  • HE WALKED AND WHEN HE TURNED
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:29.030
  • TO THANK HER,
  • 00:12:29.030 --> 00:12:30.060
  • OF COURSE, SHE WAS GONE.
  • 00:12:30.060 --> 00:12:33.050
  • SHEILA WALSH,
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:34.070
  • HER STORY IS IN HERE,
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:35.200
  • FROM RIGHT HERE ON LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:12:35.200 --> 00:12:37.160
  • WHEN SHE BROKE DOWN
  • 00:12:37.160 --> 00:12:38.290
  • ON THE SET OF THE 700 CLUB
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:40.180
  • AND WAS IN A PSYCHIATRIC WARD,
  • 00:12:40.180 --> 00:12:43.120
  • SHE WAS JUST IN
  • 00:12:43.120 --> 00:12:45.150
  • A FETAL POSITION THERE.
  • 00:12:45.150 --> 00:12:48.080
  • A STRANGER SHOWED UP
  • 00:12:48.080 --> 00:12:49.190
  • WITH A LITTLE LAMB --
  • 00:12:49.190 --> 00:12:52.050
  • A LITTLE LAMB.
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:54.080
  • PUT THAT LITTLE LAMB
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:55.120
  • IN HER HANDS
  • 00:12:55.120 --> 00:12:56.120
  • AND SHE WAS JUST SO BROKEN.
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:57.140
  • PUT THE LITTLE LAMB
  • 00:12:57.140 --> 00:12:58.150
  • IN HER HANDS AND SAID,
  • 00:12:58.150 --> 00:12:59.140
  • "THE SHEPHERD KNOWS
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:00.220
  • WHERE TO FIND YOU, SHEILA."
  • 00:13:00.220 --> 00:13:03.010
  • SOMEHOW THAT SUSTAINED HER
  • 00:13:03.010 --> 00:13:04.150
  • AND SHE WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:07.150
  • AND WONDERED IF
  • 00:13:07.150 --> 00:13:08.210
  • IT WAS ALL JUST A DREAM, JUST
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.230
  • A HALLUCINATION OF SOME KIND.
  • 00:13:09.230 --> 00:13:11.250
  • AND THERE IN THE CORNER
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:13.040
  • OF THAT ROOM
  • 00:13:13.040 --> 00:13:15.110
  • WAS THAT LITTLE SHEPHERD --
  • 00:13:15.110 --> 00:13:17.040
  • I MEAN THAT LITTLE LAMB
  • 00:13:17.040 --> 00:13:18.090
  • THAT HAD BEEN LEFT BEHIND.
  • 00:13:18.090 --> 00:13:19.100
  • James: YOU'RE A SHEPHERD
  • 00:13:19.100 --> 00:13:20.090
  • AND I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:13:20.090 --> 00:13:21.130
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU IS YOU
  • 00:13:21.130 --> 00:13:22.130
  • STARTED DOING THE ANGEL BOOK
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:23.160
  • BECAUSE YOU LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:25.210
  • WHEN YOU SEE WHAT
  • 00:13:25.210 --> 00:13:26.280
  • THE LOVING FATHER DOES TO
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:28.000
  • OVERSEE AND BLESS HIS PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:28.000 --> 00:13:30.230
  • THAT YOU GET EXCITED
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:32.020
  • ABOUT ALL COMFORT
  • 00:13:32.020 --> 00:13:33.030
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE SEEN
  • 00:13:33.030 --> 00:13:34.070
  • THE BROKEN HEART --
  • 00:13:34.070 --> 00:13:35.130
  • YOU'VE SEEN THE BROKEN HEART.
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:36.160
  • YOU WISH YOU COULD
  • 00:13:36.160 --> 00:13:37.260
  • COMFORT ADEQUATELY
  • 00:13:37.260 --> 00:13:38.270
  • AND YOU NEVER FEEL YOU CAN
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:39.290
  • THE ANGELIC HOST
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:42.010
  • OR YOU SEE
  • 00:13:42.010 --> 00:13:43.030
  • JUST THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:44.040
  • Jack: JUST TO KNOW
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:45.040
  • THAT WE'RE NOT ALONE --
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:46.040
  • THAT WE'RE NOT ALONE.
  • 00:13:46.040 --> 00:13:47.050
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:49.100
  • WE KNOW THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:13:49.100 --> 00:13:50.130
  • IS IN US.
  • 00:13:50.130 --> 00:13:51.180
  • WE KNOW WE HAVE
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:52.230
  • THE HOPE OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:53.260
  • WE KNOW GOD IS REAL.
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:54.280
  • WE HAVE GOD OUR FATHER
  • 00:13:54.280 --> 00:13:56.020
  • BUT TO THINK THAT
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.040
  • HE WOULD ADD ON TO THAT,
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:58.070
  • THE BLESSING OF ANGELIC BEINGS
  • 00:13:58.070 --> 00:13:59.100
  • THAT WOULD MINISTER TO US
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:00.160
  • IN TIMES OF SPIRITUAL BATTLE
  • 00:14:00.160 --> 00:14:02.170
  • AND WARFARE.
  • 00:14:02.170 --> 00:14:03.260
  • James: WHEN THE PASTOR
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:05.040
  • IS NOT THERE,
  • 00:14:05.040 --> 00:14:06.060
  • SOMETIMES NOT A NEIGHBOR.
  • 00:14:06.060 --> 00:14:07.080
  • Jack: WE TOLD THE STORY SUNDAY
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:08.100
  • IN OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:09.120
  • THERE IS A MAN IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:10.140
  • BY THE NAME OF TAIT CRUSE,
  • 00:14:10.140 --> 00:14:11.160
  • TAIT AND JOY CRUSE.
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:12.180
  • I THINK THEY'VE BEEN
  • 00:14:12.180 --> 00:14:13.200
  • ON YOUR PROGRAM IN THE PAST.
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:14.220
  • CONNOR, THEIR LITTLE SON
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:15.240
  • DIED OF BRAIN CANCER.
  • 00:14:15.280 --> 00:14:18.280
  • THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:20.010
  • THEY WERE IN THERE,
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:21.060
  • WHEN THEY GOT THE NEWS,
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.090
  • HE'S BY HIMSELF.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:23.130
  • TAIT IS WITH THE BOY
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:24.140
  • WHO IS ASLEEP.
  • 00:14:24.140 --> 00:14:25.180
  • THERE'S A LADY THERE
  • 00:14:25.180 --> 00:14:26.230
  • MOPPING THE FLOOR.
  • 00:14:26.230 --> 00:14:28.280
  • THIS PERSON SAYS, "HELLO."
  • 00:14:28.280 --> 00:14:31.090
  • AND HE SAID, "HELLO."
  • 00:14:31.090 --> 00:14:32.120
  • BECAUSE HE'D NEVER
  • 00:14:32.120 --> 00:14:33.150
  • SEEN HER BEFORE.
  • 00:14:33.150 --> 00:14:34.220
  • THEY HAVE THIS CONVERSATION
  • 00:14:34.220 --> 00:14:35.280
  • AND SHE SAYS, "HOW ARE YOU?"
  • 00:14:35.280 --> 00:14:36.290
  • HE SAYS, "WELL, I'M NOT GOOD.
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:38.040
  • MY SON IS DYING."
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:39.130
  • SHE SAID, "I KNOW.
  • 00:14:39.130 --> 00:14:40.270
  • BUT HE'S GOOD.
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:42.110
  • THE QUESTION IS HOW ARE YOU?"
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:44.100
  • SO HE THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT.
  • 00:14:44.100 --> 00:14:46.030
  • AND YET THIS BEING
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:48.100
  • SHOWED UP SEVERAL --
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:49.190
  • NOW THIS IS A VERY

  • MY SON IS GOING TO DIE."
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:41.110
  • THE ANGEL SAID,

  • BUT GOD'S GIVEN YOU A LIGHT
  • 00:15:46.170 --> 00:15:48.200
  • AND YOU NEED TO SHOW IT."
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:50.240
  • AND COMFORTED HIM
  • 00:15:50.240 --> 00:15:52.240
  • AND GAVE HIM THAT MESSAGE
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:54.040
  • IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:55.080
  • OF THAT DARKEST HOUR
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:56.100

  • YOU STAY RIGHT THERE!"
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:00.180
  • AND HE WENT TO FIND THE NURSE,
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:01.170
  • CAME BACK AND OF COURSE, GONE.
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:04.060

  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:05.240
  • James: LET ME JUST SAY

  • I'M TALKING TO YOU.
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:19.140
  • OUR GOD, OUR FATHER,

  • AND YOU COMFORT THE WAY
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:40.150
  • THIS PASTOR WOULD WANT
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:41.240
  • TO COMFORT EVERY PERSON

  • 00:16:44.170 --> 00:16:47.150
  • BUT YOU CAN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:16:47.150 --> 00:16:48.260

  • THE REASON WE SIT HERE TALKING

  • WHILE READING THE NEWSPAPER
  • 00:21:31.010 --> 00:21:32.060
  • THIS MORNING I SAW YET
  • 00:21:32.060 --> 00:21:33.100
  • ANOTHER TRAGEDY AND I GUESS
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:34.190
  • WHEREVER YOU LOOK, IT SEEMS
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:36.010
  • LIKE THERE IS ADVERSITY
  • 00:21:36.010 --> 00:21:37.090
  • AND TRAGEDY AND A REAL SENSE
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:38.220
  • IF IT IS NOT THE STOCK MARKET
  • 00:21:40.080 --> 00:21:41.210
  • THAT'S FALLING THEN
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:42.290
  • SOMETHING ELSE IS HAPPENING
  • 00:21:42.290 --> 00:21:44.030
  • OR THERE IS ANOTHER CRIME
  • 00:21:44.030 --> 00:21:45.070
  • OR ANOTHER VIOLENT ENCOUNTER
  • 00:21:45.070 --> 00:21:46.160
  • AND IT IS EASY TO LOSE HOPE.
  • 00:21:46.160 --> 00:21:47.290
  • BUT THE THING I'VE DISCOVERED
  • 00:21:47.290 --> 00:21:49.130
  • IS THAT THE BIBLE TEACHES US
  • 00:21:49.130 --> 00:21:50.220
  • JESUS IS THIS HOPE WE HAVE,
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:52.160
  • AS AN ANCHOR FOR OUR SOUL,
  • 00:21:52.160 --> 00:21:54.090
  • BOTH FIRM AND SECURE.

  • REGARDLESS OF
  • 00:21:55.200 --> 00:21:56.220
  • THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT
  • 00:21:56.220 --> 00:21:57.270
  • ARE HAPPENING AROUND YOU,
  • 00:21:57.270 --> 00:21:59.020
  • IF YOU ANCHOR YOUR LIFE
  • 00:21:59.020 --> 00:22:00.260
  • ON THE HOPE OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:22:00.260 --> 00:22:03.010
  • THEN HE IS GOING TO HELP YOU
  • 00:22:03.010 --> 00:22:04.200
  • TO RISE UP ABOVE THE STORMS
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:06.240
  • OF LIFE AND TO BE ABLE TO SOAR
  • 00:22:06.240 --> 00:22:08.240
  • ABOVE THEM INTO THE FUTURE
  • 00:22:08.240 --> 00:22:10.070
  • AND THE DESTINY AND THE HOPE
  • 00:22:10.070 --> 00:22:11.230
  • THAT HE HAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:12.290
  • DON'T BE WEIGHED DOWN
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:14.240
  • BUT STEP UP ABOVE THEM
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:16.080
  • BY LOOKING UNTO JESUS,
  • 00:22:16.080 --> 00:22:17.200
  • THE AUTHOR OF OUR FAITH.
  • 00:22:17.200 --> 00:22:19.120
  • DON'T FIX YOUR EYES

  • ON YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:23.210
  • DON'T FIX YOUR EYES
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:25.000
  • ON YOUR DISAPPOINTMENTS,
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:26.060
  • DON'T FIX YOUR EYES
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:27.080
  • ON THOSE THINGS THAT HAVE

  • DISILLUSIONED YOU OR
  • 00:22:28.120 --> 00:22:29.170

  • ON JESUS AND HE WILL
  • 00:22:32.080 --> 00:22:33.190
  • FILL YOU WITH HOPE.
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:34.270
  • IN FACT, THE PROPHET ZECHARIAH
  • 00:22:34.270 --> 00:22:36.040
  • SAYS THAT WE ARE
  • 00:22:36.040 --> 00:22:37.090
  • PRISONERS OF HOPE.
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:38.160
  • NOW WHEN YOU ARE PRISONER,

  • YOU'RE LOCKED IN A JAIL CELL
  • 00:22:39.190 --> 00:22:40.210
  • AND YOU'RE CHAINED
  • 00:22:40.210 --> 00:22:41.220
  • TO THOSE BARS.
  • 00:22:41.220 --> 00:22:43.010
  • THE BIBLE TEACHES US MAKE SURE
  • 00:22:43.010 --> 00:22:44.100
  • THAT YOU CHAIN YOURSELF
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:45.110
  • TO THE HOPE OF JESUS.
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:46.260
  • IN FACT, MAKE IT REALLY
  • 00:22:46.260 --> 00:22:48.020
  • DIFFICULT FOR ANYONE
  • 00:22:48.020 --> 00:22:49.140
  • TO MAKE YOU HOPELESS
  • 00:22:49.140 --> 00:22:50.200
  • OR WITHOUT HOPE.
  • 00:22:50.200 --> 00:22:51.220
  • IF YOU PUT YOUR TRUST
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:52.250
  • IN THINGS OR IF YOU PUT
  • 00:22:52.250 --> 00:22:53.280
  • YOUR TRUST IN PEOPLE,
  • 00:22:53.280 --> 00:22:55.050
  • YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED --

  • THINGS BREAK,
  • 00:22:56.160 --> 00:22:57.220
  • AND THINGS ARE LOST.
  • 00:22:57.220 --> 00:22:58.270
  • PEOPLE WILL HURT YOU.
  • 00:22:58.270 --> 00:23:00.040
  • PEOPLE DO DISAPPOINT YOU.
  • 00:23:00.040 --> 00:23:01.190
  • BUT JESUS, HE WILL NEVER
  • 00:23:01.190 --> 00:23:03.020
  • LEAVE YOU,
  • 00:23:03.020 --> 00:23:04.050
  • HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU,
  • 00:23:04.050 --> 00:23:05.140
  • AND HE IS THIS HOPE
  • 00:23:05.140 --> 00:23:06.240
  • THAT WE HAVE AS AN ANCHOR
  • 00:23:06.240 --> 00:23:08.000
  • FOR OUR SOUL.
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:09.040
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:23:09.040 --> 00:23:10.060
  • CONFRONTING TODAY, BUT

  • IF YOU PLACE YOUR HOPE IN HIM,
  • 00:23:11.150 --> 00:23:12.290
  • HE WILL RAISE YOU UP
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:14.040
  • OUT OF YOUR HOPELESSNESS
  • 00:23:14.040 --> 00:23:15.090
  • AND DESPAIR AND GIVE YOU
  • 00:23:15.090 --> 00:23:16.210
  • A FUTURE AND A DESTINY.
  • 00:23:16.210 --> 00:23:18.070
  • TO THE NAKED EYE HE IS JUST AN OLD MAN
  • 00:23:42.240 --> 00:23:45.250
  • SOMEBODY YOU COULD EASILY PASS BY
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:48.290
  • HE'LL BE THE FIRST TO REACH OUT HIS HAND
  • 00:23:49.020 --> 00:23:51.270
  • HE KNOWS A THING OR TWO ABOUT A HARD LIFE
  • 00:23:52.000 --> 00:23:54.270
  • WITH A TOUCH AND A SMILE
  • 00:23:55.000 --> 00:23:58.000
  • AS YOU HURRY ON TO WHERE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:23:58.030 --> 00:24:01.010

  • WITHOUT YOU EVEN KNOWING
  • 00:24:04.040 --> 00:24:07.020
  • I STILL BELIEVE THAT WALKING AMONG US
  • 00:24:07.050 --> 00:24:12.050
  • THERE ARE ANGELS
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:14.290
  • DOING EXTRAORDINARY THINGS
  • 00:24:15.020 --> 00:24:19.020
