  • OVER 50 YEARS.
  • 00:01:09.200 --> 00:01:10.230
  • AT FIRST
  • 00:01:10.230 --> 00:01:11.290
  • IT WAS JUST PREACHING,
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:13.020
  • AND THEN WHEN THE LORD
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:14.070
  • SAID, "CALL THE FAMILY
  • 00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:15.140
  • IN THE FAMILY ROOM AND HELP
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:16.230

  • THE FIRST TIME THAT
  • 00:01:20.110 --> 00:01:21.180
  • I DIDN'T GET TO TAPE WITH HER
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:22.230
  • FOR THREE DIFFERENT TAPINGS.
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:24.000
  • I ACTUALLY TAPED
  • 00:01:24.000 --> 00:01:25.080
  • A MISSION SPECIAL
  • 00:01:25.080 --> 00:01:26.130
  • WITHOUT BETTY WHICH HAD
  • 00:01:26.130 --> 00:01:27.200
  • NEVER HAPPENED AND IT WAS
  • 00:01:27.200 --> 00:01:28.250
  • BECAUSE SHE WAS ILL.
  • 00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:30.040
  • SHE HAD SOME KIND
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:31.130
  • OF A BRONCHIAL VIRUS
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:32.220
  • THAT YOU WERE COUGHING.
  • 00:01:32.220 --> 00:01:33.280
  • Betty: COUGHING CONSTANTLY.
  • 00:01:33.280 --> 00:01:35.070
  • James: AND SHE IS SAYING,
  • 00:01:35.070 --> 00:01:36.130
  • "CAN I CALL TIME OUT TONIGHT?"
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:37.190
  • SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO BUT
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:39.000
  • SHE'S BEEN ABLE TO MAKE IT.
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:40.070
  • I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:01:40.070 --> 00:01:41.120
  • THANK YOU BY THE WAY,
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:42.160

  • DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS.
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:51.140
  • HE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO SAY
  • 00:01:51.140 --> 00:01:52.190
  • TO ME THAT HE BEGAN LISTENING
  • 00:01:52.190 --> 00:01:53.210
  • TO ME PREACH WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:54.270
  • A FAIRLY YOUNG BOY THERE
  • 00:01:54.270 --> 00:01:56.020
  • AT FIRST BAPTIST OF DALLAS.
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:57.050
  • AND HE HEARD ME
  • 00:01:57.050 --> 00:01:58.110
  • AND IT REALLY STUCK
  • 00:01:58.110 --> 00:01:59.160
  • BECAUSE NOW HE IS THE PASTOR
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:00.250
  • OF FIRST BAPTIST OF DALLAS.
  • 00:02:00.250 --> 00:02:02.000

  • AND LISTEN SO YOU CAN GO.
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:08.230
  • WELL, HERE IS ANOTHER

  • THAT HE WROTE
  • 00:02:12.030 --> 00:02:13.110
  • THAT JUST SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:02:13.110 --> 00:02:14.170
  • GOD BROUGHT IT BACK
  • 00:02:14.170 --> 00:02:15.240
  • TO THE SURFACE
  • 00:02:15.240 --> 00:02:17.030
  • TO WHERE PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • I REALLY WANT
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:14.050
  • TO CUT TO THE CHASE.
  • 00:03:14.050 --> 00:03:15.090
  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE BOOK
  • 00:03:15.090 --> 00:03:16.090
  • BUT I DO WANT
  • 00:03:16.090 --> 00:03:17.110
  • TO SAY THANK YOU.

  • LATER THIS WEEK
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.230
  • WITH DAVID BARTON.
  • 00:03:20.230 --> 00:03:21.240
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:03:21.240 --> 00:03:23.000
  • HOW CHRISTIANS RELATE
  • 00:03:23.000 --> 00:03:24.070
  • TO THE CULTURE, THE NATION,
  • 00:03:24.070 --> 00:03:25.090
  • AND POLITICALLY.
  • 00:03:25.090 --> 00:03:26.100
  • I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:27.140
  • THIS QUESTION.
  • 00:03:27.140 --> 00:03:28.180
  • DO YOU THINK IT WAS
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:29.220
  • A BAD SALES PITCH
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:30.270
  • TO TELL THE CHURCH
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:32.040
  • THAT POLITICS IS DIRTY
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.080
  • SO STAY OUT OF IT?
  • 00:03:33.080 --> 00:03:34.160
  • WASN'T THAT PROBABLY LOUSY,
  • 00:03:34.160 --> 00:03:35.260
  • ROTTEN, DAMAGING ADVICE?
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:39.180
  • Dr. Jeffress: AND SATANIC!
  • 00:03:39.180 --> 00:03:40.290
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:03:40.290 --> 00:03:42.070
  • James: I LIKE THAT.
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:43.150
  • Dr. Jeffress: SATAN
  • 00:03:44.280 --> 00:03:46.020
  • WOULD LOVE TO DIMINISH
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:47.100
  • THE INFLUENCE OF CHRISTIANS
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:48.180
  • IN CHURCH IN THE WORLD
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:49.280
  • AND TELL THEM,
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:51.040
  • SEPARATION OF CHURCH
  • 00:03:52.120 --> 00:03:53.210
  • AND STATE --
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:54.230
  • WHATEVER THAT IS,
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:55.250
  • IT IS NOT SEPARATION
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:03:56.270
  • OF FAITH FROM PUBLIC.
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:57.290
  • GOD CALLED US
  • 00:03:57.290 --> 00:03:59.010
  • TO LIVE OUT OUR FAITH
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.050
  • IN THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE.
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:01.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING
  • 00:04:01.130 --> 00:04:02.150
  • ABOUT THAT LATER THIS WEEK.
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:03.170
  • I'M EXCITED.
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:04.190
  • James: AND YOU TALK ABOUT IT
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:05.210
  • ALL THE TIME
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:06.230
  • BECAUSE YOU TELL US
  • 00:04:06.230 --> 00:04:07.250
  • WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:08.290
  • NOW YOU TALKED ABOUT GOD
  • 00:04:08.290 --> 00:04:10.010
  • OUR PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS
  • 00:04:12.100 --> 00:04:13.190
  • AND I KNOW
  • 00:04:13.190 --> 00:04:14.220
  • Y'ALL ARE GOOD FRIENDS
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:15.270
  • AND I KNOW YOU APPRECIATE HIM,
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:17.040
  • HE CERTAINLY APPRECIATES YOU.
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:18.090
  • ROBERT TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:04:18.090 --> 00:04:19.120
  • WOULD YOU SAY THAT
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:21.230
  • THAT IS SIMILAR?
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:22.270
  • THAT GOD WANTS YOU
  • 00:04:22.270 --> 00:04:24.020
  • TO LIVE WELL,
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:25.050
  • MEANING A BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.070
  • THAT BLESSES OTHERS,
  • 00:04:26.070 --> 00:04:27.100
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?
  • 00:04:27.100 --> 00:04:28.130
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:29.170
  • SOLOMON MEANT?
  • 00:04:29.170 --> 00:04:30.220
  • Dr. Jeffress: LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:04:30.220 --> 00:04:31.260
  • WHAT I DON'T MEAN
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:33.000
  • BY "TEN KEYS
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.020
  • TO EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS."
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:35.060
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:04:35.060 --> 00:04:36.110
  • THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:37.170
  • THAT HAS BEEN TWISTED.
  • 00:04:37.170 --> 00:04:38.240
  • THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAY
  • 00:04:38.240 --> 00:04:39.270
  • GOD WANTS EVERY CHRISTIAN
  • 00:04:39.270 --> 00:04:41.030
  • TO BE WEALTHY.
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:42.060
  • WELL, IF THAT'S TRUE
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:43.090
  • JESUS MISSED OUT ON THAT.
  • 00:04:43.090 --> 00:04:44.210
  • OR GOD WANTS EVERY CHRISTIAN
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:46.090
  • TO BE PHYSICALLY WELL.
  • 00:04:46.090 --> 00:04:48.070
  • WELL IF THAT'S TRUE
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:49.110
  • PAUL MISSED OUT ON THAT.
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:50.270
  • SOMETIMES GOD'S WILL
  • 00:04:50.270 --> 00:04:52.120
  • IS FOR SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:04:52.120 --> 00:04:53.230
  • TO BE WEALTHY,
  • 00:04:53.230 --> 00:04:54.270
  • OTHER TIMES TO BE POOR.
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:56.050
  • BUT THAT'S NOT
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:57.110
  • WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:58.180
  • BUT JAMES AND BETTY,
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:04:59.270
  • I THINK WHAT'S HAPPENED IS
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.050
  • WHEN WE'VE THROWN OUT
  • 00:05:01.050 --> 00:05:02.170
  • THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:03.200
  • AND SAID, "I DON'T WANT
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:04.240
  • ANY PART OF THAT!"
  • 00:05:04.240 --> 00:05:06.010
  • WE MAY HAVE THROWN OUT
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:07.120
  • THE BABY WITH THE BATH WATER.
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:08.210
  • BECAUSE IN THIRD JOHN,
  • 00:05:08.210 --> 00:05:09.260
  • VERSE TWO, JOHN PRAYED
  • 00:05:09.260 --> 00:05:11.030
  • FOR HIS FRIEND GAIUS,
  • 00:05:11.030 --> 00:05:12.080
  • "I PRAY THAT YOU MAY PROSPER
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:13.150
  • IN ALL THINGS."
  • 00:05:13.150 --> 00:05:15.080
  • GOD WANTS US TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:05:15.080 --> 00:05:17.020
  • SO WHEN I SAY THAT
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:18.100
  • SOLOMON TELLS US THE TEN KEYS
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:19.240
  • FOR LIVING WELL,
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:21.200
  • I DEFINE LIVING WELL
  • 00:05:21.200 --> 00:05:23.120
  • AS EXPERIENCING GOD'S BEST
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:26.060
  • IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE:
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:27.280
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:05:27.280 --> 00:05:29.030
  • IN YOUR FINANCES,
  • 00:05:29.030 --> 00:05:30.290
  • IN EVERY PART OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:30.290 --> 00:05:32.170
  • AND IF WE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:05:32.170 --> 00:05:34.030
  • GOD'S BEST THAT'S THE KEY
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:36.000
  • TO A REALLY SUCCESSFUL LIFE.
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:37.170
  • James: DON'T YOU THINK
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:38.250
  • WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE THAT
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.000
  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:41.110
  • AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO SHARE?
  • 00:05:41.110 --> 00:05:42.160
  • ISN'T THAT ONE OF THE GREATEST
  • 00:05:42.160 --> 00:05:43.220
  • PARTS OF THE GOSPEL
  • 00:05:43.220 --> 00:05:44.260
  • IS THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.040
  • AND WHAT THE GOSPEL DOES
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:47.110
  • IN OUR LIVES?
  • 00:05:47.110 --> 00:05:48.160
  • Dr. Jeffress: AND LOOK,
  • 00:05:48.160 --> 00:05:49.250
  • SOLOMON'S BOOK OF PROVERBS,
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.020
  • AND THAT'S WHAT THIS BOOK,
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:52.050
  • THE SOLOMON SECRETS
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.140
  • IS BASED ON.
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:54.190
  • YOU CAN READ PROVERBS
  • 00:05:54.190 --> 00:05:55.200
  • AND NEVER FIND OUT
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:56.230
  • HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:05:57.290
  • WHEN YOU DIE.
  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:05:59.040
  • EVERY OTHER BOOK IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:05:59.040 --> 00:06:00.110
  • IS ABOUT THE NEXT LIFE.
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:01.160
  • BUT PROVERBS IS ABOUT HOW
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:02.220
  • TO LIVE IN THE HERE AND NOW,
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.280
  • ACCORDING TO GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:06.120
  • HOW TO HAVE WISDOM.
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:08.040
  • I DEFINE WISDOM
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:09.100
  • AS THE SKILL TO LIVE LIFE
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:11.160
  • ACCORDING TO GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:12.260
  • James: THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:13.290
  • YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.000
  • MANY PEOPLE OBSERVE
  • 00:06:15.000 --> 00:06:16.020
  • THAT THE LIFE OF A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.130
  • OR A CHURCH PERSON
  • 00:06:17.130 --> 00:06:18.190
  • AND THE NON-CHRISTIAN
  • 00:06:18.190 --> 00:06:19.230
  • DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:20.260
  • DIFFERENT IN MANY WAYS.
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:21.280
  • IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE JUST AS
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:23.110
  • MORALLY DECADENT OR FAILING,
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:26.230
  • HAVE JUST AS MUCH TENSION,
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:27.270
  • JUST AS MUCH DIVORCE,
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.070
  • AS MANY PROBLEMS
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.120
  • AS PEOPLE HAVE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:31.170
  • HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT?
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:32.180
  • OR HOW DOES
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:33.220
  • SOLOMON EXPLAIN IT?
  • 00:06:33.220 --> 00:06:34.230
  • Dr. Jeffress: WELL,
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:36.000
  • LOOK AT THE RATES OF ADULTERY,
  • 00:06:36.000 --> 00:06:37.030
  • DIVORCE, ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:40.040
  • ARE AT THE SAME RATE
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:41.140
  • AS UNBELIEVERS,
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:42.180
  • WHICH REALLY IS A SCANDAL
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:43.230
  • WHEN YOU THINK OF IT.
  • 00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:45.020
  • JESUS SAID, "I HAVE COME
  • 00:06:45.020 --> 00:06:46.080
  • AND HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY."
  • 00:06:47.120 --> 00:06:48.210
  • THE EASY ANSWER IS WHY DO
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:50.030
  • PEOPLE NOT EXPERIENCE IT?
  • 00:06:50.030 --> 00:06:51.170
  • WELL, WE SAY BECAUSE OF SIN,
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:53.030
  • AND THAT'S CERTAINLY TRUE.
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:55.190
  • THE WORD SIN IN GREEK
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.270
  • MEANS TO MISS THE MARK.
  • 00:06:56.270 --> 00:06:58.100
  • BUT I THINK THERE IS
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:06:59.250
  • ANOTHER REASON FOR IT.
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:01.030
  • I THINK PEOPLE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:02.070
  • HOW THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO LIVE.
  • 00:07:02.070 --> 00:07:03.130
  • AGAIN, THAT'S WHAT WISDOM IS.
  • 00:07:03.130 --> 00:07:04.260
  • IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS
  • 00:07:04.260 --> 00:07:06.140
  • IT SAYS GOD GAVE
  • 00:07:06.140 --> 00:07:07.290
  • A CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:09.130
  • THE SKILL OF WISDOM
  • 00:07:09.130 --> 00:07:10.220
  • TO WEAVE THE GARMENTS
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:12.060
  • FOR THE HIGH PRIEST.
  • 00:07:12.060 --> 00:07:13.160
  • THEY HAD THE ABILITY
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:15.030
  • TO FOLLOW GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:16.210
  • WELL, WE NEED THE ABILITY
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:18.040
  • TO FOLLOW GOD'S PLAN
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:20.030
  • FOR OUR MARRIAGES
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:21.080
  • OR OUR CHILDREARING
  • 00:07:21.080 --> 00:07:22.110
  • OR OUR FINANCES
  • 00:07:22.110 --> 00:07:23.190
  • BUT MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:25.000
  • WHAT THAT PLAN IS.
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:26.030
  • THAT'S WHERE THE BOOK
  • 00:07:26.030 --> 00:07:27.140
  • OF PROVERBS COMES IN.
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:28.240
  • I CALL THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.240
  • "UNCOMMON SENSE"
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:32.140
  • BECAUSE IT GOES AGAINST
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:33.230
  • OUR NATURAL INCLINATION.
  • 00:07:33.230 --> 00:07:36.060
  • I HAVE A FRIEND WHO WAS
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:37.160
  • WORKING ON A GARAGE ONE TIME
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:38.270
  • AND HE WAS TRYING
  • 00:07:38.270 --> 00:07:40.050
  • TO TURN THE SCREW.
  • 00:07:40.050 --> 00:07:41.070
  • HE KEPT TURNING IT
  • 00:07:41.070 --> 00:07:42.080
  • TO THE RIGHT TO TIGHTEN IT
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:43.080
  • BUT IT GOT LOOSER
  • 00:07:43.080 --> 00:07:44.100
  • THE MORE HE TIGHTENED IT.
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:45.140
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:07:45.140 --> 00:07:46.220
  • "WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?"
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:47.250
  • A FRIEND SAID, "OH!
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:49.040
  • THAT'S A LEFT-HANDED SCREW.
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:50.050
  • IT GOES
  • 00:07:50.050 --> 00:07:51.130
  • THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION."
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:52.200
  • WELL, YOU KNOW
  • 00:07:52.200 --> 00:07:53.270
  • GOD'S WISDOM IS OPPOSITE
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:55.070
  • OUR NATURAL INCLINATION.
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:56.140
  • WE THINK IF WE GET ANGRY
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:57.210
  • WELL WE'VE GOT TO LET
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:58.280
  • THAT ANGER OUT
  • 00:07:58.280 --> 00:08:00.100
  • OR WE'LL EXPLODE INSIDE.
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:01.170
  • GOD SAYS NO,
  • 00:08:01.170 --> 00:08:02.280
  • IT'S THE GLORY OF A MAN
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:04.080
  • TO OVERLOOK A TRANSGRESSION.
  • 00:08:04.080 --> 00:08:05.260
  • ONLY A FOOL
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:07.120
  • SPILLS FORTH HIS ANGER.
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:09.060
  • OR WE THINK,
  • 00:08:09.060 --> 00:08:10.170
  • THE WAY TO FINANCIAL SUCCESS
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:11.250
  • IS TO EARN MORE MONEY
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.200
  • OR TO INHERIT A LOT
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:15.050
  • FROM UNCLE ELMO
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.170
  • WHEN HE DIES AND SO FORTH.
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:17.290
  • NO, SOLOMON SAYS
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:19.100
  • THE WAY TO WEALTH
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.210
  • IS NOT THROUGH EARNING,
  • 00:08:20.210 --> 00:08:22.020
  • IT IS THROUGH
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.120
  • CONTROLLING YOUR SPENDING.
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:24.200
  • ONE GOOD THING OUR VIEWERS
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:25.290
  • MIGHT LIKE TO DO IS
  • 00:08:25.290 --> 00:08:27.070
  • PROVERBS HAS
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:28.180
  • 31 CHAPTERS IN IT.
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:29.190
  • YOU CAN READ
  • 00:08:29.190 --> 00:08:30.200
  • ONE CHAPTER A DAY.
  • 00:08:30.200 --> 00:08:31.210
  • YOU HAVE A CHAPTER A DAY
  • 00:08:31.210 --> 00:08:32.260
  • EVERY DAY OF THE MONTH
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:33.270
  • AND EVERY MONTH
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:34.280
  • YOU'LL GO THROUGH
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:35.290
  • THE ENTIRE BOOK OF PROVERBS
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:37.000
  • OR AT LEAST MOST MONTHS.
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:38.010
  • I'VE DONE THAT FOR YEARS
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.020
  • AND IT'S JUST A WAY
  • 00:08:39.020 --> 00:08:40.030
  • TO START OUT THE DAY
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:41.040
  • SEEING GOD'S POINT OF VIEW
  • 00:08:41.040 --> 00:08:42.050
  • ON THINGS.
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:43.060
  • James: AND DON'T YOU
  • 00:08:43.060 --> 00:08:44.150
  • SEE IT DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:45.200
  • MONTH AFTER MONTH?
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:46.220
  • I DIDN'T EVEN SEE THAT
  • 00:08:46.220 --> 00:08:47.270
  • ON THIS DAY LAST MONTH
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.080
  • BECAUSE THAT PART
  • 00:08:50.250 --> 00:08:52.100
  • WAS ILLUMINATED,
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:53.260
  • ALMOST MANY TIMES FOR
  • 00:08:53.260 --> 00:08:55.140
  • THE VERY MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:08:55.140 --> 00:08:57.050
  • THAT YOU'RE FINDING YOURSELF
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:08:59.280
  • CONFRONTED WITH.
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:01.040
  • Dr. Jeffress: IT IS UNCANNY
  • 00:09:01.040 --> 00:09:02.130
  • HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:03.190
  • THE THING I READ
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:04.260
  • EARLY IN THE MORNING
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:06.010
  • I CONFRONTED LATER ON
  • 00:09:06.010 --> 00:09:07.100
  • DURING THE DAY.
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:08.150
  • BUT WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:09.190
  • TO PERSISTENCE,
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:10.270
  • THE BIBLE, PROVERBS
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:11.290
  • USES THE WORD DILIGENCE .
  • 00:09:11.290 --> 00:09:13.060
  • THAT'S THE WORD FOR BEING
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:14.100
  • PERSISTENT, HARD-WORKING.
  • 00:09:14.100 --> 00:09:15.180
  • PEOPLE SAY WISDOM,
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:16.240
  • ISN'T THAT JUST POSITIVE
  • 00:09:16.240 --> 00:09:18.000
  • THINKING MUMBO JUMBO?
  • 00:09:18.000 --> 00:09:19.090
  • I THINK OF TWO EXAMPLES
  • 00:09:19.090 --> 00:09:20.150
  • IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:21.220
  • NAAMAN, REMEMBER THE CAPTAIN
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:22.290
  • OF THE SYRIAN ARMY
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:24.100
  • THROUGH THE PROPHET ELIJAH?
  • 00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:25.120
  • GOD SAID, DO YOU WANT
  • 00:09:25.120 --> 00:09:26.190
  • TO BE HEALED OF YOUR LEPROSY?
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:27.220
  • GO DOWN AND DIP YOURSELF
  • 00:09:27.220 --> 00:09:29.010
  • HOW MANY TIMES -- SEVEN TIMES
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:30.090
  • IN THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:31.110
  • YOU'VE BEEN TO THE JORDAN.
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:32.200
  • YOU KNOW HOW MUDDY
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:33.250
  • AND DISGUSTING THAT PLACE IS.
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:35.050
  • BUT HE DID IT.
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:36.100
  • ONE, TWO, THREE --
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:37.150
  • WHAT IF HE HAD STOPPED
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:38.290
  • AT THE FOURTH TIME AND SAID,
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.050
  • NOTHING IS HAPPENING HERE.
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:41.050
  • THIS IS WORTHLESS.
  • 00:09:41.050 --> 00:09:42.050
  • James: IT SHOULD BE
  • 00:09:42.050 --> 00:09:43.050
  • PROGRESSIVE.
  • 00:09:43.050 --> 00:09:44.050
  • BUT IT WASN'T.
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:45.050
  • Dr. Jeffress: IT WASN'T UNTIL
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:46.050
  • THE SEVENTH TIME.
  • 00:09:46.050 --> 00:09:47.050

  • MARCHING AROUND
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:49.050
  • ONCE A DAY FOR SIX DAYS.
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.110
  • YOU KNOW PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:52.110
  • COMPLAINING ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:09:52.110 --> 00:09:53.110
  • CARRYING THAT HEAVY ARMOR

  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY SIX TIMES!
  • 00:10:02.050 --> 00:10:05.050
  • IF THEY HAD STOPPED THAT
  • 00:10:05.050 --> 00:10:06.200
  • SIXTH TIME THEY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:10:06.200 --> 00:10:07.290
  • MISSED THE BLESSING.
  • 00:10:07.290 --> 00:10:09.040
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:10.060
  • "I REWARD PERSISTENCE."
  • 00:10:10.060 --> 00:10:12.050
  • YOU KNOW I THINK TO DEVELOP
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:14.020
  • PERSISTENCE PEOPLE HAVE TO
  • 00:10:14.020 --> 00:10:15.190
  • UNDERSTAND THAT THERE'S
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:17.060
  • REALLY NOT THAT MUCH
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:18.210
  • DIFFERENT IN THE RANGE OF
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:19.270
  • HUMAN CAPACITIES
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:21.040
  • OF INDIVIDUALS.
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:22.120
  • WE THINK SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE
  • 00:10:22.120 --> 00:10:23.170
  • ARE THERE BECAUSE
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:25.010
  • THEY'RE MORE GIFTED
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:26.060
  • OR THEY'RE LUCKIER
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:27.130
  • THAN WE ARE.
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:28.190
  • DO YOU REMEMBER
  • 00:10:28.190 --> 00:10:30.000
  • NAPOLEON HILL?
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:31.050
  • THE POSITIVE THINKING GUY,
  • 00:10:31.050 --> 00:10:32.070
  • BACK FROM A CENTURY AGO.
  • 00:10:32.070 --> 00:10:34.120
  • James: HE REALLY HAD
  • 00:10:34.120 --> 00:10:35.150
  • A LOT OF BRILLIANT THOUGHTS.
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:36.170
  • Dr. Jeffress: HE DID.
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:37.230
  • AND HE SAID HE STUDIED
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:39.010
  • THE LIVES OF THOMAS EDISON
  • 00:10:39.010 --> 00:10:41.080
  • AND HENRY FORD, IN HIS DAY,
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:43.030
  • THE GREATEST INVENTORS
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:44.180
  • THAT WERE AROUND.
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:46.210
  • HE SAID I STUDIED BOTH MEN
  • 00:10:46.210 --> 00:10:48.080
  • CLOSE UP FOR A PERIOD OF YEARS
  • 00:10:48.080 --> 00:10:50.090
  • AND I FOUND THAT THERE WAS
  • 00:10:50.090 --> 00:10:51.200
  • NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:53.100
  • AND THE REST OF HUMANITY
  • 00:10:53.100 --> 00:10:55.080
  • OTHER THAN THEIR PERSISTENCE.
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:57.110
  • SO DON'T UNDERESTIMATE IT.
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:59.040
  • IF GOD'S GIVEN YOU
  • 00:10:59.040 --> 00:11:00.140
  • SOMETHING TO DO,
  • 00:11:00.140 --> 00:11:01.180
  • KEEP DOING IT.
  • 00:11:01.180 --> 00:11:02.230
  • KEEP ON DOING IT.
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:04.090
  • COURAGE IS THE DESIRE
  • 00:11:04.090 --> 00:11:05.240
  • TO BEGIN PURSUING
  • 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:07.010
  • YOUR GOD-GIVEN DREAM
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:08.090
  • BUT PERSISTENCE
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:09.180
  • IS THE ABILITY TO CONTINUE
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:11.130
  • PURSUING THAT GOD-GIVEN DREAM
  • 00:11:11.130 --> 00:11:13.160
  • IN SPITE OF UNRELENTING
  • 00:11:13.160 --> 00:11:15.060
  • HARD WORK,
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:16.100
  • UNANTICIPATED SETBACKS
  • 00:11:16.100 --> 00:11:17.190

  • MAKE A CHOICE
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:24.030
  • TO BE PERSISTENT,
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:25.090
  • AND DETERMINE TO WALK
  • 00:11:25.090 --> 00:11:26.290
  • IN THE WAY GOD'S LEADING US.
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:28.180
  • DON'T WE?
  • 00:11:28.180 --> 00:11:29.260
  • Dr. Jeffress: WE DO!
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:31.010
  • THERE IS AN
  • 00:11:31.010 --> 00:11:32.060
  • INTERESTING PROVERB
  • 00:11:32.060 --> 00:11:33.110
  • THAT SAYS THE SLUGGARD
  • 00:11:33.110 --> 00:11:34.160
  • BURIES HIS HAND IN THE DISH
  • 00:11:34.160 --> 00:11:35.240
  • AND WILL NOT EVEN LIFT IT
  • 00:11:35.240 --> 00:11:37.110
  • TO HIS MOUTH.
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:38.270
  • THE SLUGGARD IS SO LAZY
  • 00:11:41.030 --> 00:11:43.070

  • THE FORK WITH FOOD IN IT
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:46.030
  • TO HIS MOUTH.
  • 00:11:46.030 --> 00:11:47.130
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE SAY,
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:48.230
  • YOU ASK WHY.
  • 00:11:50.040 --> 00:11:51.250
  • IN FACT, LET ME ASK
  • 00:11:51.250 --> 00:11:53.020
  • OUR AUDIENCE A QUESTION,
  • 00:11:53.020 --> 00:11:54.160
  • THOSE OF YOU HERE TONIGHT.
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:56.000
  • HOW MANY OF YOU CAN THINK

  • OF ONE THING YOU CAN DO
  • 00:11:57.140 --> 00:11:58.230
  • IN YOUR MARITAL RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:11:58.230 --> 00:12:01.180
  • THAT WILL MAKE YOUR MARRIAGE
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:02.280
  • MORE SUCCESSFUL?
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:04.090
  • CAN YOU THINK OF ONE THING
  • 00:12:04.090 --> 00:12:05.190
  • YOU CAN DO AT WORK THAT
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:06.250
  • WOULD MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL?
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:09.000
  • CAN YOU THINK OF
  • 00:12:09.000 --> 00:12:10.120
  • ONE THING RIGHT NOW
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:11.250
  • THAT IF YOU DID THIS ONE THING
  • 00:12:11.250 --> 00:12:13.070
  • IT WOULD DEEPEN
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:14.220
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:16.010
  • I BET EVERY ONE OF US
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:17.140
  • CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION.
  • 00:12:17.140 --> 00:12:18.200
  • WE CAN THINK
  • 00:12:18.200 --> 00:12:19.240
  • OF WHAT THAT ONE THING IS
  • 00:12:19.240 --> 00:12:21.070
  • THAT WOULD IMPROVE
  • 00:12:21.070 --> 00:12:22.170
  • OUR MARRIAGE, OUR WORK,
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:23.260
  • OUR MOST IMPORTANT
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:25.070
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:26.180
  • THEN WHY AREN'T WE DOING IT?
  • 00:12:26.180 --> 00:12:27.280
  • WHY AREN'T YOU DOING IT?
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:29.120
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THE ANSWER
  • 00:12:29.120 --> 00:12:30.220
  • FOR MOST PEOPLE IS?
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:31.280
  • OH, THAT WOULD BE TOO HARD!
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:34.010
  • WELL, I'VE GOT GREAT NEWS
  • 00:12:34.010 --> 00:12:35.160

  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:40.190 --> 00:12:41.270
  • YOU CAN DO THAT ONE THING
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:43.040
  • AND IT IS NOT GOING
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:44.120
  • TO COST YOU YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:45.250

  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:20.200
  • THE ABC'S I CALL,
  • 00:14:20.200 --> 00:14:22.050
  • "A FINANCIAL FREEDOM
  • 00:14:22.050 --> 00:14:23.130
  • MARGIN IN LIFE."
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:24.250
  • FIRST OF ALL
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:26.090
  • A: ADJUST YOUR SPENDING
  • 00:14:26.090 --> 00:14:27.160
  • TO BE SLIGHTLY BELOW
  • 00:14:27.160 --> 00:14:28.230
  • YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:30.220
  • DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'LL JUST
  • 00:14:30.220 --> 00:14:32.020
  • SPEND LESS THAN YOU EARN,
  • 00:14:32.020 --> 00:14:33.110
  • JUST A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:34.180
  • OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:36.010
  • YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:14:36.010 --> 00:14:37.040
  • GREAT FINANCIAL FREEDOM.
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:38.280
  • B: BE CAREFUL OF DEBT.
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:41.080
  • THE BIBLE DOESN'T SAY
  • 00:14:41.080 --> 00:14:42.240
  • AVOID DEBT FOR ANY REASON
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:44.120
  • AT ALL TIMES
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:45.240
  • BUT WE CAREFUL OF IT.
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:47.040
  • THE BORROWER IS SERVANT
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:48.150
  • TO THE LENDER.
  • 00:14:48.150 --> 00:14:49.290
  • C: CONSERVE A PORTION
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:51.250
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:53.040
  • IT IS AN AMAZING THING.
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:54.200
  • IF A 19-YEAR OLD STARTS
  • 00:14:54.200 --> 00:14:57.070
  • SAVING JUST $100 A MONTH
  • 00:14:57.070 --> 00:15:00.080
  • AND NEVER SAVES
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:01.190
  • ANY MORE THAN THAT,
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:02.270
  • $100 A MONTH PUTS IT
  • 00:15:02.270 --> 00:15:04.160
  • IN AN AVERAGE MUTUAL FUND
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:06.240
  • EARNING 10% SAY OVER
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:08.250
  • THE LONG PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:15:08.250 --> 00:15:10.150
  • BY THE AGE HE IS 72
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:12.140
  • HE'LL HAVE NEARLY $3 MILLION.
  • 00:15:12.140 --> 00:15:14.220
  • AND IF THAT'S IN A ROTH IRA,
  • 00:15:14.220 --> 00:15:16.250
  • IT IS TAX FREE.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.050
  • IT JUST TAKES A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:15:18.050 --> 00:15:19.140
  • OF SAVINGS OVER A LONG PERIOD
  • 00:15:19.140 --> 00:15:20.260
  • OF TIME TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:15:20.260 --> 00:15:22.110
  • AND THEN THE D IN ABCD:
  • 00:15:22.110 --> 00:15:24.200
  • DEVOTE A PORTION
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:26.030
  • OF YOUR INCOME TO THE LORD.
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:27.150
  • IN FACT, DEVOTE ALL
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:28.270
  • OF YOUR INCOME TO THE LORD.
  • 00:15:28.270 --> 00:15:30.110
  • EVERYTHING WE HAVE
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:31.240
  • BELONGS TO GOD.
  • 00:15:31.240 --> 00:15:33.070
  • SOLOMON SAID, "HONOR THE LORD
  • 00:15:33.070 --> 00:15:34.280
  • FROM YOUR WEALTH
  • 00:15:34.280 --> 00:15:36.060
  • AND HE WILL BLESS YOU."
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:37.150
  • James: IF PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:15:37.150 --> 00:15:38.240
  • LIVE BELOW THEIR MEANS AND
  • 00:15:38.240 --> 00:15:39.290
  • COMMIT EVERYTHING TO GOD,
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:41.120
  • WHEN YOU TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:42.210
  • EVERYTHING BEING GOD'S,
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:44.000
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT REALLY
  • 00:15:44.000 --> 00:15:45.130
  • CONCERN ME AND YOU AND I BOTH
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:46.200
  • LOVE OUR COUNTRY AND WE'RE
  • 00:15:46.200 --> 00:15:48.050
  • VERY CONCERNED ABOUT FEDERAL
  • 00:15:48.050 --> 00:15:49.190
  • OVERSIGHT AND PEOPLE DEPENDENT
  • 00:15:49.190 --> 00:15:51.040
  • UPON ANOTHER FORM OF PHARAOH
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:53.130
  • OR CAESAR, THAT'S DISTURBING
  • 00:15:53.130 --> 00:15:54.240
  • TO US BECAUSE WE KNOW
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:56.040
  • THE FATHER WE DEPEND UPON.
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:57.250
  • IF IT IS GOD'S MONEY,
  • 00:15:57.250 --> 00:16:00.040
  • WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WAY
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:01.190
  • WE LET THOSE PEOPLE IN OFFICE
  • 00:16:01.190 --> 00:16:03.150
  • USE GOD'S MONEY THAT WE PAY
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:05.220
  • ON TAXES, IT'S STILL HIS.
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:07.080
  • THAT MEANS EVERY CHRISTIAN
  • 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:08.260
  • SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:10.050
  • IS HAPPENING WITH THE MONEY
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:11.170
  • GOD GAVE US OVERSIGHT OF
  • 00:16:11.170 --> 00:16:13.000
  • AND WE OUGHT TO BE WATCHING
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:14.080
  • WHERE IT GOES IN GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:16:14.080 --> 00:16:15.180
  • I THINK THERE IS ABOUT TO BE
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:16.250
  • A GREAT CLEANING UP PROCESS
  • 00:16:16.250 --> 00:16:18.130
  • BECAUSE THERE IS
  • 00:16:18.130 --> 00:16:19.250
  • SO MUCH CORRUPTION.
  • 00:16:19.250 --> 00:16:21.020
  • AND I THINK THAT IS
  • 00:16:21.020 --> 00:16:22.070
  • AN ANSWER TO PRAYER.
  • 00:16:22.070 --> 00:16:23.090
  • THAT'S WISDOM.
  • 00:16:23.090 --> 00:16:24.150
  • SO WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:25.170
  • BEING PERSISTENT,
  • 00:16:25.170 --> 00:16:26.200
  • LET'S BE DETERMINED.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:27.250
  • WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:16:27.250 --> 00:16:28.290
  • A WISE STEWARD OVER
  • 00:16:28.290 --> 00:16:30.010
  • EVERYTHING GOD GIVES TO US,
  • 00:16:30.010 --> 00:16:31.050
  • I THINK IF WE'LL DO THAT
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:32.080
  • AND ESPECIALLY THE CHURCH,
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:33.110
  • IF YOU CAN TAKE
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:34.130
  • A FEW MILLION PEOPLE
  • 00:16:34.130 --> 00:16:35.170
  • AND THEY START BRINGING
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:36.210
  • EVERYBODY IN BONDAGE
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:37.210
  • TO THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM,
  • 00:16:37.210 --> 00:16:38.220
  • WHAT IF ALL THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:39.230
  • WHO CLAIM TO KNOW CHRIST
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:40.240
  • AND KNOW GOD AS FATHER
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:41.250
  • WOULD REALLY LIVE THE WAY
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:42.260
  • HE WANTS US TO, WOULD TAKE
  • 00:16:42.260 --> 00:16:43.280
  • THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON,
  • 00:16:43.280 --> 00:16:44.290
  • JUST THE THINGS YOU'VE TALKED
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:46.000
  • ABOUT, BEGAN TO LIVE IT,
  • 00:16:46.000 --> 00:16:47.010
  • DON'T YOU THINK WE CAN MAKE
  • 00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:48.030
  • A KINGDOM IMPACT
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.040
  • AND AN IMPRINT ON THIS NATION
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:50.080
  • Dr. Jeffress: ABSOLUTELY!
  • 00:16:51.110 --> 00:16:52.150
  • IT WOULD ATTRACT PEOPLE
  • 00:16:52.150 --> 00:16:53.150
  • TO THE GOSPEL, ATTRACT PEOPLE
  • 00:16:53.150 --> 00:16:54.210
  • TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:16:54.210 --> 00:16:55.250
  • WHEN THEY SEE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:57.000
  • AND EXPERIENCING GOD'S BEST
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:16:59.110
  • IN THEIR MARRIAGES,
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:00.220
  • IN THEIR CHILDREN,
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:02.140
  • AND IN THEIR FINANCES --
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:04.070
  • THAT'S THE BEST ADVERTISEMENT
  • 00:17:04.070 --> 00:17:05.190
  • FOR CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:06.290
  • IS A CONTENT CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:17:06.290 --> 00:17:09.050
  • James: DO Y'ALL LIKE THIS GUY?
  • 00:17:09.050 --> 00:17:10.080
  • DO YOU APPRECIATE
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:11.130
  • DR. JEFFRESS?
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:12.170
  • BETTY AND I LOVE HIM.
  • 00:17:12.170 --> 00:17:13.230
  • I'M TELLING YOU.
  • 00:17:13.230 --> 00:17:15.010
  • WE TRY NOT TO EVER MISS HIM.
  • 00:17:15.010 --> 00:17:16.040
  • THEY ARE TWO
  • 00:17:16.040 --> 00:17:17.080
  • OF OUR REALLY GOOD FRIENDS.
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:18.120
  • WHEN WE FIND OUT
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:19.160
  • THEY'RE GOING TO BE ON ANY
  • 00:17:19.160 --> 00:17:20.200
  • OF THE PROGRAMS,
  • 00:17:20.200 --> 00:17:21.220
  • GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE,
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:22.240
  • THAT'S ONE OF THEM,
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:23.250
  • AND NOW HIS DAUGHTER
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:24.260
  • SARAH SANDERS,
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:25.270
  • WE LIKE TO HEAR HER.
  • 00:17:25.270 --> 00:17:26.280
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE ON, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:27.290
  • YOU'RE KIND ENOUGH
  • 00:17:27.290 --> 00:17:29.000
  • TO TWEET OUT TO THOSE OF US
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.070
  • THAT PRAY FOR YOU
  • 00:17:30.070 --> 00:17:31.080
  • ALL THE TIME
  • 00:17:31.080 --> 00:17:32.090
  • AND SAY I'M GOING TO BE ON
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:33.160
  • WITH SOMEBODY BECAUSE
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:34.170
  • YOU WANT OUR PRAYERS.
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:35.180
  • BUT YOU DO A GREAT JOB.
  • 00:17:35.180 --> 00:17:36.190
  • DON'T YOU APPRECIATE
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:37.200
  • THE WAY HE REPRESENTS US
  • 00:17:37.200 --> 00:17:38.210
  • BEFORE THE NEWS MEDIA
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:39.220
  • AND ALL OVER THE WORLD?
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:40.230
  • LET ME JUST SAY THIS TO YOU.
  • 00:17:40.230 --> 00:17:41.290
  • THE BOOK IS IN THE BOOKSTORES.
  • 00:17:41.290 --> 00:17:43.000
  • YOU CAN GET IT ONLINE.
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:44.010
  • DOC, LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:45.020
  • WHAT OUR VIEWERS LOVE TO DO.
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.030
  • WHEN JESUS SAID, "IF YOU GIVE
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:47.040
  • A CUP OF WATER IN MY NAME
  • 00:17:47.040 --> 00:17:48.110
  • YOU WON'T LOSE YOUR REWARD,"
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:50.000
  • OUR VIEWERS DON'T SEE GIVING
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:51.160
  • SOMETHING IN JESUS' NAME
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:52.250
  • AS GETTING SOME KIND
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:53.280
  • OF WEALTH IN RETURN.
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:55.040
  • THEY FIND THAT IF I DO
  • 00:17:55.040 --> 00:17:56.150
  • WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO,
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:58.200
  • THE REWARD AND THE BLESSING
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:00.030
  • OF BEING A BLESSING
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:01.080
  • IS INDESCRIBABLE.
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:02.210
  • PEOPLE TELL US, MANY WHO
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:04.000
  • HELP US DRILL WATER WELLS,
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.210
  • WE'VE DRILLED OVER 6.000,
  • 00:18:05.210 --> 00:18:06.290
  • ON OUR WAY TO 7.000 NOW
  • 00:18:06.290 --> 00:18:08.230
  • THIS YEAR WITH YOUR HELP,
  • 00:18:08.230 --> 00:18:10.060
  • DO YOU KNOW THEY TELL US
  • 00:18:10.060 --> 00:18:11.110
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE MOST JOYFUL
  • 00:18:11.110 --> 00:18:12.150
  • THINGS WE'VE EVER DONE.
  • 00:18:12.150 --> 00:18:13.250
  • A LOT OF THEM WOULD START OUT
  • 00:18:13.250 --> 00:18:15.070
  • BY GIVING A CUP
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:16.130
  • BUT THEN THEY BEGAN TO PRAY,
  • 00:18:16.130 --> 00:18:17.270
  • GOD LET US GIVE A WHOLE WELL.
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:19.090
  • AND THEY FOUND THAT TO BE
  • 00:18:19.090 --> 00:18:20.150
  • A JOYFUL EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:21.260
  • WHEN WE TALK TO OUR VIEWERS
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:23.110
  • ABOUT GIVING WATER,
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:25.010
  • IF YOU GIVE A CUP OF WATER,
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:26.090
  • WHAT ABOUT A WELL OF WATER?
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:27.150
  • WE'RE DRILLING 400 MORE.
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.120
  • PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS.
  • 00:18:30.120 --> 00:18:32.080
  • THAT WHEN WE ASK YOU TO HELP,

  • WE'RE ACTUALLY ASKING YOU
  • 00:18:34.120 --> 00:18:35.250
  • TO BECOME THE MIRACLE
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:37.290
  • THAT PEOPLE ASK FOR AND NEED,
  • 00:18:37.290 --> 00:18:40.050
  • THE ANSWER TO PRAYER
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:41.200
  • THAT MANY MOTHERS
  • 00:18:41.200 --> 00:18:42.270
  • AND FAMILY MEMBERS
  • 00:18:42.270 --> 00:18:44.020
  • ARE PRAYING,
  • 00:18:44.020 --> 00:18:45.140

  • THE PERFECT ANSWER
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:47.250
  • TO THAT PRAYER.
  • 00:18:47.250 --> 00:18:49.090
  • YOU BECOME THE SOURCE
  • 00:18:49.090 --> 00:18:50.230
