  • - WE DON'T REALLY NEED TO SEE ANGELS AS LITTLE CUDDLY CHERUBS
  • 00:00:07.120 --> 00:00:10.150
  • OR A FAIRY GODMOTHER OR A DISNEY PRINCESS.
  • 00:00:10.180 --> 00:00:13.220
  • THESE ARE POWERFUL BEINGS
  • 00:00:13.250 --> 00:00:16.080
  • CREATED BY GOD.
  • 00:00:16.110 --> 00:00:18.220
  • I TRY TO DECONSTRUCT SOME OF THE MYTHS ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:22.000
  • PEOPLE THINK OH, DO PEOPLE DIE AND BECOME ANGELS?
  • 00:00:22.030 --> 00:00:24.290
  • OR IS MY LITTLE BABY IN HEAVEN NOW AN ANGEL?
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:28.270
  • Announcer: JACK GRAHAM ANSWERS QUESTIONS ABOUT ANGELS:
  • 00:00:29.000 --> 00:00:31.040
  • WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY DO,
  • 00:00:31.070 --> 00:00:33.040
  • AND WHY IT MATTERS -- NEXT!
  • 00:00:33.070 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:47.140
  • Betty: THANK YOU SO MUCH
  • 00:00:55.120 --> 00:00:58.120
  • FOR JOINING US ON LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:58.120 --> 00:00:59.190
  • I'M BETTY AND THIS IS JAMES.
  • 00:00:59.190 --> 00:01:01.190
  • James: WELL, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:01:01.190 --> 00:01:02.230
  • SOMEBODY OUT HERE HOLLERING.
  • 00:01:02.230 --> 00:01:03.250
  • IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN FOR ME
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:06.010
  • OR FOR... MAYBE BETTY.
  • 00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:07.130
  • BUT JACK GRAHAM IS WITH US.
  • 00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:09.100
  • I WANT TO HOLD THIS UP.
  • 00:01:09.100 --> 00:01:10.200
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN
  • 00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:11.210
  • GET A CLOSE-UP OF IT
  • 00:01:11.210 --> 00:01:12.230
  • BUT THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:01:12.230 --> 00:01:13.280
  • A BEAUTIFUL COVER.
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:15.140
  • BUT IT'S ON
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:17.000
  • AN INCREDIBLE SUBJECT;
  • 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:18.060
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:19.070
  • NOW I WANT YOU TO LISTEN
  • 00:01:19.070 --> 00:01:20.070
  • TO JUST THESE LITTLE
  • 00:01:20.070 --> 00:01:21.120
  • INTRODUCTORY PHRASES:
  • 00:01:21.120 --> 00:01:23.240
  • WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY DO.
  • 00:01:23.240 --> 00:01:26.060
  • AND THEN THIS:
  • 00:01:26.060 --> 00:01:27.270
  • WHY IT MATTERS.
  • 00:01:27.270 --> 00:01:29.200
  • WHY DO ANGELS MATTER?
  • 00:01:29.200 --> 00:01:31.270
  • JACK GRAHAM IS THE PASTOR
  • 00:01:31.270 --> 00:01:34.050
  • OF PRESTONWOOD CHURCH AND
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:37.020
  • IT IS TRULY A GREAT CHURCH.
  • 00:01:37.020 --> 00:01:39.080
  • I JUST TOLD THE PEOPLE HERE
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:41.000
  • TO GO TO THEIR CHRISTMAS
  • 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:42.110
  • PAGEANT EVERY DECEMBER.
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:44.080
  • I'M TELLING YOU WHATEVER
  • 00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:45.170
  • IT TAKES TO GET IN IT, GO.
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:46.230
  • YOU WILL BE GRATEFUL.
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:48.120
  • YOU WILL SEE THE LORD
  • 00:01:48.120 --> 00:01:49.240
  • HIGH AND LIFTED UP.
  • 00:01:49.240 --> 00:01:51.200
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:53.050
  • PASTOR JACK GRAHAM
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:54.070
  • TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:01:55.120
  • Jack: THANK YOU!
  • 00:01:56.180 --> 00:01:57.190
  • ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL.
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:01:58.240
  • James: I AM REALLY INTERESTED
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:00.140
  • AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:01.290
  • LET ME JUST READ --
  • 00:02:01.290 --> 00:02:03.020
  • THIS IS MAX LUCADO.
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:05.070
  • AND BOY HAS HE IMPACTED
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:06.190
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:07.280
  • AND WRITTEN A LOT OF BOOKS
  • 00:02:07.280 --> 00:02:09.050
  • AND PEOPLE HAVE READ THEM.
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:10.230
  • "I CONSIDER JACK GRAHAM
  • 00:02:10.230 --> 00:02:12.220
  • TO BE A KEY VOICE
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:14.020
  • FOR THE CHURCH
  • 00:02:14.020 --> 00:02:15.170
  • IN THESE TURBULENT DAYS.
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:17.160
  • HIS COMMITMENT TO CHRIST
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:19.030
  • IS UNSHAKABLE."
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:20.110
  • AND INDEED IT IS.
  • 00:02:20.110 --> 00:02:21.230
  • "HIS CLEAR TEACHING
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:23.030
  • IS INSPIRING."
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.160
  • IF YOU'VE NOT HEARD HIM,
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.010
  • HE'S ON TELEVISION: FIND HIM
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:27.280
  • OR FIND HIM ONLINE.
  • 00:02:27.280 --> 00:02:29.220
  • "AND HIS LEADERSHIP
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.110
  • IS DESPERATELY NEEDED."
  • 00:02:31.110 --> 00:02:33.080
  • I THINK IN THE WHOLE CHURCH,
  • 00:02:33.080 --> 00:02:34.260
  • I THINK IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:37.270
  • AND THE IMPACT
  • 00:02:37.270 --> 00:02:39.070
  • AROUND THE WORLD --
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:40.090
  • NOW THAT'S WHAT I THINK.
  • 00:02:40.090 --> 00:02:41.160
  • "THIS BOOK IS YET
  • 00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:42.230
  • ANOTHER VALUABLE CONTRIBUTION
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:44.060
  • FROM A DEAR SAINT."
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:47.100
  • I KNOW YOU APPRECIATE THAT.
  • 00:02:47.100 --> 00:02:48.220
  • I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:52.000
  • SOMETIMES PREACHERS
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:53.100
  • GET SOMETHING ON THEIR HEART
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:54.120
  • AND SO A PUBLISHER
  • 00:02:54.120 --> 00:02:55.130
  • WILL TALK TO THEM
  • 00:02:55.130 --> 00:02:56.180
  • AND THE PASTOR OR THE PREACHER
  • 00:02:56.180 --> 00:02:57.240
  • OR THE WRITER WOULD REALLY
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:02:58.270
  • LIKE TO SEE THIS GET OUT.
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:02:59.290
  • YOU WERE ACTUALLY APPROACHED
  • 00:02:59.290 --> 00:03:02.140
  • ABOUT ANGELS; RIGHT?
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:04.070
  • Jack: I KIND OF RESISTED.
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:05.130
  • I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:06.170
  • BESIDES ANGELS."
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:08.230
  • BUT I HAD A CONVERSATION
  • 00:03:08.230 --> 00:03:10.060
  • WITH A DEAR FRIEND
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:11.180
  • WHO JUST REMINDED ME
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:12.260
  • THAT THE PURPOSE OF ANGELS
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:14.250
  • TO JESUS.
  • 00:03:16.120 --> 00:03:17.200
  • ANGELS ALWAYS STEP BACK AND
  • 00:03:17.200 --> 00:03:19.090
  • GIVE CENTER STAGE TO JESUS.
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:21.140
  • AND THE MORE YOU STUDY ANGELS,
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:23.290
  • THE MORE YOU SEE THE GRANDEUR,
  • 00:03:23.290 --> 00:03:25.100
  • THE GLORY, THE GREATNESS,
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:26.190
  • THE MAJESTY OF GOD.
  • 00:03:26.190 --> 00:03:28.080
  • THE QUESTION IS
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:29.120
  • WHY WOULD YOU STUDY ANGELS?
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:30.130
  • WHY WOULD IT MATTER?
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:31.180
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU SEE
  • 00:03:31.180 --> 00:03:32.240
  • THE ANGELS
  • 00:03:32.240 --> 00:03:34.030
  • AND WHAT THE ANGELS DO
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:35.160
  • YOU SEE THE GLORY OF GOD
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:36.290
  • IN WAYS THAT
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:38.080
  • I'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:03:38.080 --> 00:03:40.070
  • JUST THE FACT THAT
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:41.150
  • THERE ARE OVER 290,
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:44.100
  • RIGHT AT 300 REFERENCES
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:46.050
  • TO ANGELS IN THE BIBLE;
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:48.010
  • SO THE BIBLE IS FULL OF IT,
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:49.070
  • ESPECIALLY AROUND
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:50.250
  • THE TIME OF CHRIST.
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:52.150
  • James: THEY ANNOUNCED
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:53.210
  • THE BIRTH; DIDN'T THEY?
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:54.290
  • Jack: THERE ARE MORE
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:56.140
  • ABOUT ANGELS
  • 00:03:56.140 --> 00:03:57.200
  • AROUND THE TIME OF JESUS
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:58.230
  • AND HE SPOKE ABOUT IT
  • 00:03:58.230 --> 00:03:59.260
  • MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE
  • 00:03:59.260 --> 00:04:01.000
  • BECAUSE HE KNOWS THEM
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:02.050
  • OF COURSE SO VERY WELL.
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.060
  • BUT YES, FROM MARY;
  • 00:04:03.060 --> 00:04:04.080
  • THE ANGELS ANNOUNCING TO MARY
  • 00:04:04.080 --> 00:04:05.130
  • THE BIRTH AND TO JOSEPH
  • 00:04:05.130 --> 00:04:06.160
  • IN THE DREAM; TO THE ANGELS
  • 00:04:06.160 --> 00:04:07.210
  • OUTSIDE OF BETHLEHEM
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:09.080
  • TO THE ANGEL
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.220
  • THAT SPOKE TO JOSEPH.
  • 00:04:10.220 --> 00:04:11.290
  • SAID,
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:13.030
  • "TAKE THE CHILD TO EGYPT"
  • 00:04:13.030 --> 00:04:14.060
  • AND THEN TOLD HIM WHEN TO
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.100
  • COME BACK WITH THE CHILD,
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:16.130
  • WHEN EVERYTHING WAS SAFE.
  • 00:04:16.130 --> 00:04:17.170
  • AND THEN WHEN JESUS
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:18.200
  • WAS TEMPTED.
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:19.210
  • AFTER THE BAPTISM,
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:20.240
  • HE GOES INTO THE WILDERNESS
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:21.250
  • AND HE STRUGGLES WITH SATAN;
  • 00:04:21.250 --> 00:04:23.030
  • THIS POWERFUL WARFARE
  • 00:04:23.030 --> 00:04:24.200
  • THAT TAKES PLACE
  • 00:04:24.200 --> 00:04:25.270
  • AND HE OVERCOMES
  • 00:04:25.270 --> 00:04:27.030
  • WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:28.080
  • BUT HE'S EXHAUSTED;
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:29.140
  • 40 DAYS WITHOUT FOOD AND WATER
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:31.220
  • AND THE ANGELS COME
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:33.190
  • AND MINISTER TO HIM.
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:34.220
  • SO JESUS KNOWS THE ANGELS WELL
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:37.020
  • AND HE SPOKE OF ANGELS
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:38.170
  • OFTEN IN HIS TEACHING.
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:40.010
  • WHEN YOU GET TO
  • 00:04:40.010 --> 00:04:41.070
  • THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:42.080
  • WHEN HE IS POURING OUT SWEAT
  • 00:04:42.080 --> 00:04:43.110
  • DROPS OF BLOOD,
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:45.010
  • PREPARING HIMSELF
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:46.160
  • FOR THE CROSS
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:47.210
  • AND LAYING HIS LIFE DOWN,
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:48.280
  • SURRENDERING HIS LIFE
  • 00:04:48.280 --> 00:04:50.000
  • TO THE WILL OF THE FATHER.
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:51.070
  • HE'S ALREADY SO WEAKENED
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:53.010
  • AT THIS POINT PHYSICALLY;
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:54.120
  • BUT MAINLY EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.050
  • WHAT WAS IN THAT CUP
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:57.130
  • THAT HE WAS ABOUT TO DRINK.
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:04:59.270
  • THE BIBLE SAYS AN ANGEL CAME
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.250
  • AND MINISTERED TO HIM.
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:03.040
  • James: ISN'T THAT GREAT?
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:04.100
  • TO THINK THAT JESUS WOULD
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:05.090
  • HAVE THAT -- SIGNIFICANT!
  • 00:05:05.090 --> 00:05:06.100
  • Jack: AND THEN OF COURSE,
  • 00:05:06.100 --> 00:05:07.110
  • JESUS SAID ON ONE OCCASION
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:08.220
  • THAT HE COULD CALL
  • 00:05:08.220 --> 00:05:10.130
  • 70.000 LEGIONNAIRES
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.080
  • TO COME AND DELIVER HIM.
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:15.130
  • AT THE CROSS,
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:16.250
  • WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:05:16.250 --> 00:05:17.290
  • HE COULD HAVE SPOKEN
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:19.000
  • AND SAID THE WORD
  • 00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:20.010
  • AND THE ANGELS WOULD HAVE COME
  • 00:05:20.010 --> 00:05:21.070
  • AND DESTROYED THE ENEMY.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:22.110
  • James: IT'S A GREAT SONG:
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.150
  • HE COULD HAVE CALLED
  • 00:05:23.150 --> 00:05:24.170
  • 10.000 ANGELS! MORE!
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:25.210
  • Jack: BUT HE BLED AND HE DIED
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:26.210
  • FOR YOU AND FOR ME.
  • 00:05:26.210 --> 00:05:27.240
  • AND THEN HE DIES,
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.100
  • AND THEN HE IS IN THE TOMB,
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.170
  • AND THEN THE ANGEL
  • 00:05:30.170 --> 00:05:31.210
  • ROLLS THE STONE AWAY.
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:32.260
  • AND THEN THE ANGEL
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:34.000
  • TELLS THE LADIES THAT
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:35.030
  • HE'S NOT HERE, HE'S RISEN.
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.090
  • THEN THE ANGEL
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:37.170
  • ASCENDS WITH HIM AND SAYS,
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:38.230
  • "HE'S COMING BACK."
  • 00:05:38.230 --> 00:05:39.290
  • THEN WHEN HE DOES COME BACK
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:41.020
  • THE ANGELS ARE
  • 00:05:41.020 --> 00:05:42.030
  • COMING WITH HIM;
  • 00:05:42.030 --> 00:05:43.040
  • THE SHOUT AND THE VOICE
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.220
  • OF THE ARCHANGEL
  • 00:05:44.220 --> 00:05:46.000
  • AND THE TRUMP OF GOD.
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:47.080
  • AND THEN IN HEAVEN
  • 00:05:47.080 --> 00:05:48.120
  • HE'S WORSHIPPED BY ANGELS,
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:49.140
  • "WORTHY IS THE LAMB."
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:52.210
  • YOU CAN HEAR ALMOST
  • 00:05:52.210 --> 00:05:54.200
  • THE BRUSH OF ANGEL WINGS
  • 00:05:54.200 --> 00:05:55.280
  • EVERY TIME YOU TURN
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.030
  • James: I THINK I HEAR PEOPLE
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.090
  • SITTING OUT HERE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:05:59.090 --> 00:06:00.140
  • SAYING, AND PROBABLY,
  • 00:06:00.140 --> 00:06:01.200
  • PRESTONWOOD, "HOW DO WE
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:02.210
  • GET SOME OF THOSE AROUND US?
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:03.230
  • Betty: THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:05.290
  • I WANT TO KNOW.
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:07.040
  • TELL US HOW IMPORTANT IT IS
  • 00:06:07.040 --> 00:06:08.130
  • FOR US TO BE AWARE
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:09.210
  • OF ANGELS TODAY?
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:10.280
  • Jack: VERY IMPORTANT!
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:12.060
  • KNOWING FIRST OF ALL
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:13.130
  • HOW THEY INSPIRE US
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:15.080
  • BECAUSE AS I VIEW
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.220
  • THE ROLE OF ANGELS
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.260
  • IT IS FIRST
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:19.030
  • AS WORSHIPPERS OF GOD;
  • 00:06:19.030 --> 00:06:20.240
  • 24/7 THEY ARE WORSHIPPING GOD,
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:23.080
  • AROUND THE THRONE OF GOD
  • 00:06:23.080 --> 00:06:24.180
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:25.200
  • THIS MAGNIFICENT --
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:26.270
  • AND WE DON'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:06:26.270 --> 00:06:28.150
  • HOW MANY THERE ARE.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:29.220
  • James: SHOULD THAT INSPIRE US
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:30.270
  • AS BELIEVERS?
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.000
  • Jack: BECAUSE WE'RE GOING
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:33.040
  • TO JOIN THE ANGELS IN SINGING
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:34.100
  • THE SONGS OF SALVATION.
  • 00:06:34.100 --> 00:06:35.140
  • THEY SANG SONGS OF PRAISE.
  • 00:06:35.140 --> 00:06:37.060
  • WE'RE GOING TO JOIN
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:38.150
  • THE ANGEL BAND IN SINGING.
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.260
  • James: WE'VE GOT A SONG
  • 00:06:40.260 --> 00:06:41.280
  • TO SING THEY DON'T HAVE;
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:43.010
  • DON'T WE?
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:44.040
  • Jack: WE DO! WE HAVE
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:45.060
  • THE SONG OF REDEMPTION,
  • 00:06:46.110 --> 00:06:47.130
  • OF COURSE.
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:48.150
  • BUT TO THINK
  • 00:06:48.150 --> 00:06:49.160
  • THAT THEY ARE WORSHIPPERS.
  • 00:06:49.160 --> 00:06:50.270
  • I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW
  • 00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:54.200
  • IN OUR STUDY HERE
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:55.270
  • IS JUST HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:57.230
  • TO DESCRIBE THE CHARACTER
  • 00:06:57.230 --> 00:06:59.210
  • AND THE GREATNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.220
  • THEN I SAY
  • 00:07:01.220 --> 00:07:02.280
  • ANGELS ARE WITNESSES.
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:04.080
  • THEY ALWAYS COME
  • 00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:05.190
  • WITH A MESSAGE.
  • 00:07:05.190 --> 00:07:06.230
  • THE VERY WORD ANGEL
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:08.030
  • MEANS MESSENGER.
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:09.060
  • SO IN THAT SENSE
  • 00:07:09.060 --> 00:07:10.110
  • THEY ARE ALWAYS DELIVERING
  • 00:07:10.110 --> 00:07:11.120
  • IMPORTANT MESSAGES TO PEOPLE
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:13.100
  • WHETHER IT IS THE ANNOUNCEMENT
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:14.200
  • OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST OR
  • 00:07:14.200 --> 00:07:16.010
  • AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:17.130
  • WE OFTEN SEE ANGELS
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:18.240
  • AS EXECUTORS OF JUDGMENT,
  • 00:07:19.010 --> 00:07:22.010
  • ESPECIALLY IN
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:23.050
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:24.050
  • SO WE DON'T REALLY NEED
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:25.190
  • TO SEE ANGELS
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:27.060
  • AS A LITTLE CUDDLY CHERUB
  • 00:07:27.060 --> 00:07:28.070
  • OR A FAIRY GODMOTHER
  • 00:07:28.070 --> 00:07:29.170
  • OR A DISNEY PRINCESS.
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.050
  • THESE ARE POWERFUL BEINGS
  • 00:07:31.050 --> 00:07:33.190
  • CREATED BY GOD.
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:36.010
  • I TRY TO DECONSTRUCT SOME
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:37.110
  • OF THE MYTHS ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:38.240
  • PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:40.130
  • OH, DO PEOPLE DIE
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:41.180
  • AND BECOME ANGELS?
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:42.200
  • OR IS MY LITTLE BABY IN HEAVEN
  • 00:07:42.200 --> 00:07:44.270
  • NOW AN ANGEL?
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:46.210
  • CERTAINLY THERE ARE GREAT
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:48.000
  • PROMISES REGARDING HEAVEN
  • 00:07:48.000 --> 00:07:49.070
  • FOR THE BELIEVER
  • 00:07:49.070 --> 00:07:50.090
  • BUT WE DON'T TURN INTO ANGELS.
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:51.120
  • ANGELS ARE A UNIQUE
  • 00:07:51.120 --> 00:07:52.290
  • DISTINCT CREATION BY GOD
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:55.060
  • FOR A PURPOSE.
  • 00:07:55.060 --> 00:07:56.250
  • THEY EXISTED
  • 00:07:56.250 --> 00:07:58.040
  • BEFORE HUMANKIND EXISTED.
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:07:59.060
  • BEFORE CREATION THE ANGELS
  • 00:07:59.060 --> 00:08:00.140
  • WERE CREATED BY GOD
  • 00:08:00.140 --> 00:08:03.040
  • IN ETERNITY PAST.
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:07.090
  • IN FACT JOB TELLS US
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:08.260
  • WHEN JOB IS ARGUING
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:10.010
  • WITH THE LORD
  • 00:08:10.010 --> 00:08:11.100
  • ABOUT HIS CONDITION
  • 00:08:11.100 --> 00:08:12.270
  • AND GOD USES SOME SARCASM
  • 00:08:12.270 --> 00:08:14.150
  • WITH HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:08:14.150 --> 00:08:15.270
  • "WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I CREATED
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:17.050
  • ALL OF THE HEAVENS
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:18.160
  • AND THE EARTH?
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:19.210
  • AND WHERE WERE YOU, JOB,
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:20.230
  • WHEN THE MORNING ANGELS SANG
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:21.280
  • AND THE SONS OF GOD?"
  • 00:08:21.280 --> 00:08:23.020
  • AND HE WAS TALKING
  • 00:08:23.020 --> 00:08:24.050
  • ABOUT THOSE ANGELS
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:25.090
  • THAT WERE PRESENT AT CREATION.
  • 00:08:25.090 --> 00:08:26.100
  • OF COURSE,
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:27.140
  • THEY'RE GOING TO BE PRESENT
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:28.160
  • IN THE NEW CREATION
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:29.180
  • WHEN WE WORSHIP GOD.
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:31.210
  • BUT DO THEY INTERACT
  • 00:08:31.210 --> 00:08:33.220
  • AND DO THEY ENGAGE US TODAY?
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:35.210
  • WE KNOW THEY ARE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:08:35.210 --> 00:08:36.290
  • WHAT I DO IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:08:36.290 --> 00:08:38.050
  • IS TAKE ANGEL APPEARANCES,
  • 00:08:38.050 --> 00:08:40.230
  • TIMES IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:08:40.230 --> 00:08:42.130
  • WHEN THEY SHOWED UP
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:43.170
  • FOR A DISTINCT PURPOSE
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:44.210
  • TO DELIVER SOMEONE,
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:46.000
  • WHETHER IT WAS DANIEL
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:47.080
  • BEING DELIVERED
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.090
  • OUT OF THE LION'S DEN.
  • 00:08:48.090 --> 00:08:49.110
  • James: DID THEY
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:50.130
  • COMFORT SOMETIMES?
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:51.140
  • Jack: TO BRING COMFORT
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:52.140
  • TO PEOPLE LIKE PAUL
  • 00:08:52.140 --> 00:08:53.190
  • WHEN HE WAS GOING DOWN
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:54.260
  • IN THAT SHIPWRECK
  • 00:08:54.260 --> 00:08:55.280
  • AND GOD ENCOURAGED HIM
  • 00:08:55.280 --> 00:08:57.010
  • BUT HE SENT AN ANGEL TO DO IT.
  • 00:08:57.010 --> 00:08:58.240
  • DELIVERING PEOPLE FROM DEATH
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.010
  • LIKE THE APOSTLES
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.090
  • WHO WERE IN JAIL.
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:03.110
  • James: I ACTUALLY STOOD
  • 00:09:03.110 --> 00:09:04.180
  • AND HIS MOM, MOMMA CASH,
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:07.270
  • AND JOHNNIE TOLD ME THIS STORY
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:10.290
  • BUT HE SAID, "I WANT YOU
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.140
  • JACK CASH, HIS BROTHER
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:15.080
  • WAS GOING TO BE A PREACHER
  • 00:09:15.080 --> 00:09:16.140
  • AND WAS CUT
  • 00:09:16.140 --> 00:09:17.200
  • WITH A CIRCLE SAW IN SHOP,
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:19.270
  • AND HE'S DYING.
  • 00:09:19.270 --> 00:09:21.130
  • THEY CAN'T EVEN
  • 00:09:21.130 --> 00:09:22.220
  • GIVE HIM WATER.
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:24.000
  • THIS IS SO MOVING TO JOHNNIE
  • 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:25.070
  • BECAUSE HE TOLD ME
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:26.100
  • IT AFFECTED HIM
  • 00:09:26.100 --> 00:09:27.130
  • HIS WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:28.150
  • BY THE WAY,
  • 00:09:28.150 --> 00:09:29.170
  • GOD DID SOME GREAT WORK
  • 00:09:29.170 --> 00:09:30.190
  • IN JOHNNY CASH'S LIFE.
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:31.210
  • NOT ONLY DELIVERED HIM
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:32.230
  • FROM THE DRUGS BUT
  • 00:09:32.230 --> 00:09:33.250
  • JUST SO MUCH IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:35.030
  • HE SAID, "JAMES."
  • 00:09:35.030 --> 00:09:36.090
  • AND THEN MOMMA CASH IS HERE
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:37.120
  • SO HE SAID, "MOMMA TELL HIM."
  • 00:09:37.120 --> 00:09:38.260
  • THEY'RE IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:40.080
  • AND JACK SUDDENLY LOOKED UP
  • 00:09:40.080 --> 00:09:41.140
  • IN THE CORNER OF THE ROOM.
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:42.240
  • HE SAID, "DO YOU SEE THEM?
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:44.170
  • DON'T YOU SEE THEM?"
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:45.220
  • AND THEY WERE LOOKING AROUND;
  • 00:09:45.220 --> 00:09:47.050
  • MOMMA CASH AND JOHNNIE
  • 00:09:47.050 --> 00:09:48.100
  • WERE LOOKING.
  • 00:09:48.100 --> 00:09:49.150
  • "DON'T YOU SEE THEM?"
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:50.200
  • AND THEY SAID, "WHAT SON?"
  • 00:09:50.200 --> 00:09:52.040
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:53.090
  • "IT'S THE ANGELS, MOM.
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:54.140
  • THEY'RE COMING."
  • 00:09:54.140 --> 00:09:55.190
  • AND HE LEFT RIGHT LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:55.190 --> 00:09:58.040
  • Jack: I'VE HEARD STORIES
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:09:59.040
  • LIKE THAT THROUGH THE YEARS.
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:00.060
  • MY OWN GRANDFATHER
  • 00:10:00.060 --> 00:10:01.070
  • AS HE WAS DYING SAID SOMETHING
  • 00:10:01.070 --> 00:10:03.030
  • SIMILAR TO THAT.
  • 00:10:03.030 --> 00:10:04.160
  • THAT IS ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:05.200
  • THINGS ABOUT ANGELS.
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:06.240
  • JESUS TOLD THAT STORY
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:08.000
  • OF THE RICH MAN AND LAZARUS
  • 00:10:08.000 --> 00:10:09.170
  • AND SAID, "WHEN THE
  • 00:10:09.170 --> 00:10:11.060
  • THE ANGELS CARRIED HIM HOME."
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.060
  • IT'S A GREAT OLD SONG:
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:15.080
  • COME ANGEL BAND TO CARRY ME.
  • 00:10:15.130 --> 00:10:18.130
  • WE KNOW
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:19.200
  • AND HE'S GOING
  • 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:21.190
  • TO CARRY US HOME.
  • 00:10:21.190 --> 00:10:22.250
  • HE SAID, "I'LL COME."
  • 00:10:22.250 --> 00:10:23.280
  • BUT ANGELS ARE GOING
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.010
  • TO ATTEND US.
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:26.060
  • I'VE GOT STORIES,
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:27.070
  • NOT ONLY BIBLICAL STORIES,
  • 00:10:27.070 --> 00:10:28.090
  • AND I TRIED TO MAKE THIS BOOK
  • 00:10:28.090 --> 00:10:30.060
  • ABOUT REAL LIFE
  • 00:10:30.060 --> 00:10:31.180
  • AND REAL STORIES.
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:32.210
  • James: HAVE YOU EVER SEEN
  • 00:10:32.210 --> 00:10:33.210
  • AN ANGEL?
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:34.220
  • Jack: I'VE NEVER SEEN
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:35.260
  • AN ANGEL.
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:37.000
  • I'VE FELT ANGELIC ACTIVITY,
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:38.010
  • FOR SURE.
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:39.040
  • I'VE SENSED
  • 00:10:39.040 --> 00:10:40.110
  • A PRESENCE OF ANGELS.
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:41.170
  • I ACTUALLY FELL OUT OF THE CAR
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:42.200
  • WHEN I WAS THREE YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:10:42.200 --> 00:10:43.210
  • I OPENED THE DOOR; IT WAS
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:44.230
  • GOING 40-50 MILES AN HOUR.
  • 00:10:44.230 --> 00:10:45.250
  • I OPENED THE DOOR.
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:46.260
  • I WAS TRYING TO...
  • 00:10:46.260 --> 00:10:48.010
  • MY MOTHER HAD TOLD ME NOT
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.050
  • TO THROW AWAY... SHE WANTED
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:50.080
  • ME ALWAYS TO EAT THAT CRUST
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:51.100
  • AND I NEVER LIKED THE CRUST.
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:52.110
  • I'D ALWAYS PEEL IT OFF.
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:53.120
  • SO I HAD IT IN MY HAND
  • 00:10:53.120 --> 00:10:54.180
  • AND I'M THINKING WHAT AM
  • 00:10:54.180 --> 00:10:55.170
  • I GOING TO DO WITH THIS?
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:56.220
  • SO I'M THINKING
  • 00:10:56.220 --> 00:10:57.230
  • IN MY THREE YEAR OLD MIND,
  • 00:10:57.230 --> 00:10:58.260
  • I'M GOING TO THROW IT
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:10:59.280
  • OUT THE WINDOW, SO I'M GOING
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:01.040
  • TO ROLL THE WINDOW DOWN BUT
  • 00:11:01.040 --> 00:11:02.060
  • I GOT A HOLD OF THE DOOR AND
  • 00:11:02.060 --> 00:11:03.170
  • IT JUST SUCKED ME RIGHT OUT
  • 00:11:03.170 --> 00:11:04.230
  • BEFORE SHE COULD SLOW DOWN.
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:07.000
  • I REMEMBER NOW;
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:08.090
  • I REMEMBER THINKING
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:10.180
  • AS A LITTLE THREE YEAR OLD,
  • 00:11:10.180 --> 00:11:11.290
  • IT SEEMED LIKE FOREVER
  • 00:11:11.290 --> 00:11:13.140
  • BEFORE I HIT THE GROUND
  • 00:11:13.140 --> 00:11:14.160
  • THAT I SAID,
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:15.210
  • "YOU KNOW I COULD BE DEAD."
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:16.280
  • I REMEMBER A SOFT LANDING.
  • 00:11:16.280 --> 00:11:19.050
  • I'VE GOT A LITTLE SCAR HERE
  • 00:11:19.050 --> 00:11:20.150
  • AND THAT'S IT.
  • 00:11:20.150 --> 00:11:22.080
  • I'M CONVINCED TO THIS DAY
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:23.080
  • THAT SOMEONE PROTECTED ME;
  • 00:11:24.000 --> 00:11:27.000
  • WHAT I KNOW
  • 00:11:27.000 --> 00:11:28.260
  • IS IT'S THE ANGELS.
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:30.010
  • DR. KEN COOPER,
  • 00:11:30.010 --> 00:11:31.020
  • WHO IS IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:11:31.020 --> 00:11:32.030
  • THE FATHER OF AEROBICS,
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:33.040
  • AN INCREDIBLE PHYSICIAN,
  • 00:11:33.040 --> 00:11:35.050
  • THE COOPER CLINIC;
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:36.100
  • OBVIOUSLY, A MAN
  • 00:11:36.100 --> 00:11:38.000
  • NOT GIVEN TO WILD STORIES
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:39.200
  • AND YET HE WAS ON
  • 00:11:39.200 --> 00:11:40.280
  • A CLIMBING EXPEDITION
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:42.010
  • IN EAST AFRICA, TANZANIA.
  • 00:11:42.030 --> 00:11:45.030
  • THEY WERE GOING TO CLIMB
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:46.100
  • MOUNT KILIMANJARO.
  • 00:11:46.100 --> 00:11:47.180
  • AND HE ENDS UP ILLEGALLY
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:49.150
  • IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:11:49.150 --> 00:11:50.220
  • IT IS KIND OF A LONG STORY
  • 00:11:50.220 --> 00:11:51.220
  • AND HE GETS CALLED AWAY
  • 00:11:51.220 --> 00:11:52.260
  • FOR AN EMERGENCY.
  • 00:11:52.260 --> 00:11:54.120
  • HE REALIZES AS THE CAR
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.280
  • IS TAKING HIM BACK
  • 00:11:55.280 --> 00:11:57.030
  • TO THE AIRPORT
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.040
  • THAT HE'S ILLEGAL.
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:11:59.060
  • HE'S THINKING
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:00.120
  • I'M GOING INTO A JAIL.
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:01.170
  • I'M GOING TO...
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:02.190
  • HE'S SWEATING BB'S
  • 00:12:02.190 --> 00:12:04.120
  • AT THIS POINT.
  • 00:12:04.120 --> 00:12:05.250
  • HE'S REALLY NERVOUS BECAUSE
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.010
  • THEY DON'T FOOL AROUND
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:08.030
  • OVER THERE IF YOU'RE IN
  • 00:12:08.030 --> 00:12:09.100
  • THEIR COUNTRY ILLEGAL.
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.130
  • SO HE JUST PRAYED AND
  • 00:12:10.130 --> 00:12:11.180
  • ASKED THE LORD TO HELP HIM.
  • 00:12:11.180 --> 00:12:12.230
  • WHEN HE GOT TO THE AIRPORT
  • 00:12:12.230 --> 00:12:13.290
  • SOMEONE WALKED UP TO HIM,
  • 00:12:13.290 --> 00:12:15.160
  • A FEMALE AND SAID,
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:17.110
  • "DR. COOPER, FOLLOW ME."
  • 00:12:17.110 --> 00:12:19.140
  • HE SAID HE FOLLOWED
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:20.190
  • THIS PERSON THROUGH
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:21.280
  • RIGHT THROUGH PASSPORT.
  • 00:12:21.280 --> 00:12:23.050
  • THE PASSPORT CONTROL PEOPLE
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:24.110
  • DIDN'T EVEN SEE.
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:25.210
  • SHE PUT IT OUT,
  • 00:12:25.210 --> 00:12:27.000
  • THEY STAMPED IT.
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:28.000
  • HE WALKED AND WHEN HE TURNED
  • 00:12:28.000 --> 00:12:29.020
  • TO THANK HER,
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:30.050
  • OF COURSE, SHE WAS GONE.
  • 00:12:30.050 --> 00:12:33.040
  • SHEILA WALSH,
  • 00:12:33.040 --> 00:12:34.060
  • HER STORY IS IN HERE,
  • 00:12:34.060 --> 00:12:35.190
  • FROM RIGHT HERE ON LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:37.150
  • WHEN SHE BROKE DOWN
  • 00:12:37.150 --> 00:12:38.280
  • ON THE SET OF THE 700 CLUB
  • 00:12:38.280 --> 00:12:40.170
  • AND WAS IN A PSYCHIATRIC WARD,
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:43.110
  • SHE WAS JUST IN
  • 00:12:43.110 --> 00:12:45.140
  • A FETAL POSITION THERE.
  • 00:12:45.140 --> 00:12:48.070
  • A STRANGER SHOWED UP
  • 00:12:48.070 --> 00:12:49.180
  • WITH A LITTLE LAMB --
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:52.040
  • A LITTLE LAMB.
  • 00:12:52.040 --> 00:12:54.070
  • PUT THAT LITTLE LAMB
  • 00:12:54.070 --> 00:12:55.110
  • IN HER HANDS
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:56.110
  • AND SHE WAS JUST SO BROKEN.
  • 00:12:56.110 --> 00:12:57.130
  • PUT THE LITTLE LAMB
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:58.140
  • IN HER HANDS AND SAID,
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:12:59.130
  • "THE SHEPHERD KNOWS
  • 00:12:59.130 --> 00:13:00.210
  • WHERE TO FIND YOU, SHEILA."
  • 00:13:00.210 --> 00:13:03.000
  • SOMEHOW THAT SUSTAINED HER
  • 00:13:03.000 --> 00:13:04.140
  • AND SHE WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY
  • 00:13:04.140 --> 00:13:07.140
  • AND WONDERED IF
  • 00:13:07.140 --> 00:13:08.200
  • IT WAS ALL JUST A DREAM, JUST
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:09.220
  • A HALLUCINATION OF SOME KIND.
  • 00:13:09.220 --> 00:13:11.240
  • AND THERE IN THE CORNER
  • 00:13:11.240 --> 00:13:13.030
  • OF THAT ROOM
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:15.100
  • WAS THAT LITTLE SHEPHERD --
  • 00:13:15.100 --> 00:13:17.030
  • I MEAN THAT LITTLE LAMB
  • 00:13:17.030 --> 00:13:18.080
  • THAT HAD BEEN LEFT BEHIND.
  • 00:13:18.080 --> 00:13:19.090
  • James: YOU'RE A SHEPHERD
  • 00:13:19.090 --> 00:13:20.080
  • AND I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:21.120
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU IS YOU
  • 00:13:21.120 --> 00:13:22.120
  • STARTED DOING THE ANGEL BOOK
  • 00:13:22.120 --> 00:13:23.150
  • BECAUSE YOU LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:25.200
  • WHEN YOU SEE WHAT
  • 00:13:25.200 --> 00:13:26.270
  • THE LOVING FATHER DOES TO
  • 00:13:26.270 --> 00:13:27.290
  • OVERSEE AND BLESS HIS PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:30.220
  • THAT YOU GET EXCITED
  • 00:13:30.220 --> 00:13:32.010
  • ABOUT ALL COMFORT
  • 00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:33.020
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE SEEN
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.060
  • THE BROKEN HEART --
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:35.120
  • YOU'VE SEEN THE BROKEN HEART.
  • 00:13:35.120 --> 00:13:36.150
  • YOU WISH YOU COULD
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.250
  • COMFORT ADEQUATELY
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:38.260
  • AND YOU NEVER FEEL YOU CAN
  • 00:13:38.260 --> 00:13:39.280
  • THE ANGELIC HOST
  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:42.000
  • OR YOU SEE
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:43.020
  • JUST THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:44.030
  • Jack: JUST TO KNOW
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:45.030
  • THAT WE'RE NOT ALONE --
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:46.030
  • THAT WE'RE NOT ALONE.
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:47.040
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:13:48.070 --> 00:13:49.090
  • WE KNOW THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:50.120
  • IS IN US.
  • 00:13:50.120 --> 00:13:51.170
  • WE KNOW WE HAVE
  • 00:13:51.170 --> 00:13:52.220
  • THE HOPE OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:53.250
  • WE KNOW GOD IS REAL.
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:54.270
  • WE HAVE GOD OUR FATHER
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.010
  • BUT TO THINK THAT
  • 00:13:56.010 --> 00:13:57.030
  • HE WOULD ADD ON TO THAT,
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:13:58.060
  • THE BLESSING OF ANGELIC BEINGS
  • 00:13:58.060 --> 00:13:59.090
  • THAT WOULD MINISTER TO US
  • 00:13:59.090 --> 00:14:00.150
  • IN TIMES OF SPIRITUAL BATTLE
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:02.160
  • AND WARFARE.
  • 00:14:02.160 --> 00:14:03.250
  • James: WHEN THE PASTOR
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:05.030
  • IS NOT THERE,
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:06.050
  • SOMETIMES NOT A NEIGHBOR.
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:07.070
  • Jack: WE TOLD THE STORY SUNDAY
  • 00:14:07.070 --> 00:14:08.090
  • IN OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:14:08.090 --> 00:14:09.110
  • THERE IS A MAN IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:14:09.110 --> 00:14:10.130
  • BY THE NAME OF TAIT CRUSE,
  • 00:14:10.130 --> 00:14:11.150
  • TAIT AND JOY CRUSE.
  • 00:14:11.150 --> 00:14:12.170
  • I THINK THEY'VE BEEN
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:13.190
  • ON YOUR PROGRAM IN THE PAST.
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:14.210
  • CONNOR, THEIR LITTLE SON
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:15.230
  • DIED OF BRAIN CANCER.
  • 00:14:15.270 --> 00:14:18.270
  • THE FIRST DAY
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:20.000
  • THEY WERE IN THERE,
  • 00:14:20.000 --> 00:14:21.050
  • WHEN THEY GOT THE NEWS,
  • 00:14:21.050 --> 00:14:22.080
  • HE'S BY HIMSELF.
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:23.120
  • TAIT IS WITH THE BOY
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:24.130
  • WHO IS ASLEEP.
  • 00:14:24.130 --> 00:14:25.170
  • THERE'S A LADY THERE
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:26.220
  • MOPPING THE FLOOR.
  • 00:14:26.220 --> 00:14:28.270
  • THIS PERSON SAYS, "HELLO."
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:31.080
  • AND HE SAID, "HELLO."
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:32.110
  • BECAUSE HE'D NEVER
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:33.140
  • SEEN HER BEFORE.
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:34.210
  • THEY HAVE THIS CONVERSATION
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:35.270
  • AND SHE SAYS, "HOW ARE YOU?"
  • 00:14:35.270 --> 00:14:36.280
  • HE SAYS, "WELL, I'M NOT GOOD.
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:38.030
  • MY SON IS DYING."
  • 00:14:38.030 --> 00:14:39.120
  • SHE SAID, "I KNOW.
  • 00:14:39.120 --> 00:14:40.260
  • BUT HE'S GOOD.
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:42.100
  • THE QUESTION IS HOW ARE YOU?"
  • 00:14:42.100 --> 00:14:44.090
  • SO HE THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT.
  • 00:14:44.090 --> 00:14:46.020
  • AND YET THIS BEING
  • 00:14:46.020 --> 00:14:48.090
  • SHOWED UP SEVERAL --
  • 00:14:48.090 --> 00:14:49.180
  • NOW THIS IS A VERY

  • MY SON IS GOING TO DIE."
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:41.100
  • THE ANGEL SAID,

  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:50.230
  • AND COMFORTED HIM
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:52.230
  • AND GAVE HIM THAT MESSAGE
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:54.030
  • IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:15:54.030 --> 00:15:55.070
  • OF THAT DARKEST HOUR
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:56.090

  • YOU STAY RIGHT THERE!"
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:00.170
  • AND HE WENT TO FIND THE NURSE,
  • 00:16:00.170 --> 00:16:01.160
  • CAME BACK AND OF COURSE, GONE.
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:04.050

  • 00:16:04.050 --> 00:16:05.230
  • James: LET ME JUST SAY

  • I'M TALKING TO YOU.
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:19.130
  • OUR GOD, OUR FATHER,

  • AND YOU COMFORT THE WAY
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:40.140
  • THIS PASTOR WOULD WANT
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:41.230
  • TO COMFORT EVERY PERSON

  • 00:16:44.160 --> 00:16:47.140
  • BUT YOU CAN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:16:47.140 --> 00:16:48.250

  • THE REASON WE SIT HERE TALKING

  • WHILE READING THE NEWSPAPER
  • 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:32.050
  • THIS MORNING I SAW YET
  • 00:21:32.050 --> 00:21:33.090
  • ANOTHER TRAGEDY AND I GUESS
  • 00:21:33.090 --> 00:21:34.180
  • WHEREVER YOU LOOK, IT SEEMS
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:36.000
  • LIKE THERE IS ADVERSITY
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:37.080
  • AND TRAGEDY AND A REAL SENSE
  • 00:21:37.080 --> 00:21:38.210
  • IF IT IS NOT THE STOCK MARKET
  • 00:21:40.070 --> 00:21:41.200
  • THAT'S FALLING THEN
  • 00:21:41.200 --> 00:21:42.280
  • SOMETHING ELSE IS HAPPENING
  • 00:21:42.280 --> 00:21:44.020
  • OR THERE IS ANOTHER CRIME
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:45.060
  • OR ANOTHER VIOLENT ENCOUNTER
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:46.150
  • AND IT IS EASY TO LOSE HOPE.
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:47.280
  • BUT THE THING I'VE DISCOVERED
  • 00:21:47.280 --> 00:21:49.120
  • IS THAT THE BIBLE TEACHES US
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:50.210
  • JESUS IS THIS HOPE WE HAVE,
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:52.150
  • AS AN ANCHOR FOR OUR SOUL,
  • 00:21:52.150 --> 00:21:54.080
  • BOTH FIRM AND SECURE.

  • REGARDLESS OF
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:56.210
  • THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:57.260
  • ARE HAPPENING AROUND YOU,
  • 00:21:57.260 --> 00:21:59.010
  • IF YOU ANCHOR YOUR LIFE
  • 00:21:59.010 --> 00:22:00.250
  • ON THE HOPE OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:22:00.250 --> 00:22:03.000
  • THEN HE IS GOING TO HELP YOU
  • 00:22:03.000 --> 00:22:04.190
  • TO RISE UP ABOVE THE STORMS
  • 00:22:04.190 --> 00:22:06.230
  • OF LIFE AND TO BE ABLE TO SOAR
  • 00:22:06.230 --> 00:22:08.230
  • ABOVE THEM INTO THE FUTURE
  • 00:22:08.230 --> 00:22:10.060
  • AND THE DESTINY AND THE HOPE
  • 00:22:10.060 --> 00:22:11.220
  • THAT HE HAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:12.280
  • DON'T BE WEIGHED DOWN
  • 00:22:12.280 --> 00:22:14.230
  • BUT STEP UP ABOVE THEM
  • 00:22:14.230 --> 00:22:16.070
  • BY LOOKING UNTO JESUS,
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:17.190
  • THE AUTHOR OF OUR FAITH.
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:19.110
  • DON'T FIX YOUR EYES
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:22.120
  • ON YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:22:22.120 --> 00:22:23.200
  • DON'T FIX YOUR EYES
  • 00:22:23.200 --> 00:22:24.290
  • ON YOUR DISAPPOINTMENTS,
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:26.050
  • DON'T FIX YOUR EYES
  • 00:22:26.050 --> 00:22:27.070
  • ON THOSE THINGS THAT HAVE
  • 00:22:27.070 --> 00:22:28.110
  • DISILLUSIONED YOU OR
  • 00:22:28.110 --> 00:22:29.160

  • ON JESUS AND HE WILL
  • 00:22:32.070 --> 00:22:33.180
  • FILL YOU WITH HOPE.
  • 00:22:33.180 --> 00:22:34.260
  • IN FACT, THE PROPHET ZECHARIAH
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:36.030
  • SAYS THAT WE ARE
  • 00:22:36.030 --> 00:22:37.080
  • PRISONERS OF HOPE.
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:38.150
  • NOW WHEN YOU ARE PRISONER,
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:39.180
  • YOU'RE LOCKED IN A JAIL CELL
  • 00:22:39.180 --> 00:22:40.200
  • AND YOU'RE CHAINED
  • 00:22:40.200 --> 00:22:41.210
  • TO THOSE BARS.
  • 00:22:41.210 --> 00:22:43.000
  • THE BIBLE TEACHES US MAKE SURE
  • 00:22:43.000 --> 00:22:44.090
  • THAT YOU CHAIN YOURSELF
  • 00:22:44.090 --> 00:22:45.100
  • TO THE HOPE OF JESUS.
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:46.250
  • IN FACT, MAKE IT REALLY
  • 00:22:46.250 --> 00:22:48.010
  • DIFFICULT FOR ANYONE
  • 00:22:48.010 --> 00:22:49.130
  • TO MAKE YOU HOPELESS
  • 00:22:49.130 --> 00:22:50.190
  • OR WITHOUT HOPE.
  • 00:22:50.190 --> 00:22:51.210
  • IF YOU PUT YOUR TRUST
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:52.240
  • IN THINGS OR IF YOU PUT
  • 00:22:52.240 --> 00:22:53.270
  • YOUR TRUST IN PEOPLE,
  • 00:22:53.270 --> 00:22:55.040
  • YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED --
  • 00:22:55.040 --> 00:22:56.150
  • THINGS BREAK,
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.210
  • AND THINGS ARE LOST.
  • 00:22:57.210 --> 00:22:58.260
  • PEOPLE WILL HURT YOU.
  • 00:22:58.260 --> 00:23:00.030
  • PEOPLE DO DISAPPOINT YOU.
  • 00:23:00.030 --> 00:23:01.180
  • BUT JESUS, HE WILL NEVER
  • 00:23:01.180 --> 00:23:03.010
  • LEAVE YOU,
  • 00:23:03.010 --> 00:23:04.040
  • HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU,
  • 00:23:04.040 --> 00:23:05.130
  • AND HE IS THIS HOPE
  • 00:23:05.130 --> 00:23:06.230
  • THAT WE HAVE AS AN ANCHOR
  • 00:23:06.230 --> 00:23:07.290
  • FOR OUR SOUL.
  • 00:23:07.290 --> 00:23:09.030
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:10.050
  • CONFRONTING TODAY, BUT
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:11.140
  • IF YOU PLACE YOUR HOPE IN HIM,
  • 00:23:11.140 --> 00:23:12.280
  • HE WILL RAISE YOU UP
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:14.030
  • OUT OF YOUR HOPELESSNESS
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:15.080
  • AND DESPAIR AND GIVE YOU
  • 00:23:15.080 --> 00:23:16.200
  • A FUTURE AND A DESTINY.
  • 00:23:16.200 --> 00:23:18.060
  • TO THE NAKED EYE HE IS JUST AN OLD MAN
  • 00:23:42.230 --> 00:23:45.240
  • SOMEBODY YOU COULD EASILY PASS BY
  • 00:23:45.270 --> 00:23:48.280
  • HE'LL BE THE FIRST TO REACH OUT HIS HAND
  • 00:23:49.010 --> 00:23:51.260
  • HE KNOWS A THING OR TWO ABOUT A HARD LIFE
  • 00:23:51.290 --> 00:23:54.260
  • WITH A TOUCH AND A SMILE
  • 00:23:54.290 --> 00:23:57.290
  • AS YOU HURRY ON TO WHERE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:23:58.020 --> 00:24:01.000
  • YOUR WHOLE LIFE CHANGED FOR GOOD
  • 00:24:01.030 --> 00:24:04.000
  • WITHOUT YOU EVEN KNOWING
  • 00:24:04.030 --> 00:24:07.010
  • I STILL BELIEVE THAT WALKING AMONG US
  • 00:24:07.040 --> 00:24:12.040
  • THERE ARE ANGELS
  • 00:24:12.070 --> 00:24:14.280
  • DOING EXTRAORDINARY THINGS
  • 00:24:15.010 --> 00:24:19.010
  • IT'S PLAIN TO SEE THAT THEY'RE ALL AROUND US
  • 00:24:19.040 --> 00:24:24.250
  • ANGELS... SOME OF THEM JUST DON'T HAVE WINGS
  • 00:24:24.280 --> 00:24:31.230
  • THERE IS A LADY YOU KEEP RUNNING INTO

  • WHO NEVER HEARD OR SAID MUCH OF ANYTHING
  • 00:24:46.140 --> 00:24:49.140
  • BUT HER EYES SEEM TO LOOK RIGHT THROUGH YOU
  • 00:24:49.170 --> 00:24:52.140
  • RIGHT TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR PAIN
