  • WOULD YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:01:22.070 --> 00:01:25.070
  • YOU WALKED INTO OUR HOME
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:28.230
  • ABOUT 40 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:01:28.230 --> 00:01:30.120
  • YOU AND YOUR LITTLE
  • 00:01:30.120 --> 00:01:31.170
  • Robert: YES,
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:33.290
  • I WAS 18 YEARS OLD
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:35.070
  • AND WE CAME TO SEE YOU
  • 00:01:35.070 --> 00:01:36.130
  • ABOUT THIS TIME RIGHT BEFORE,
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:38.090
  • BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED.
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:41.030
  • AND WE'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:01:41.030 --> 00:01:42.180
  • OVER 39 YEARS NOW.
  • 00:01:42.180 --> 00:01:44.150
  • James: LET ME ASK YOU,
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:45.220
  • WHY DID YOU WANT
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:46.230
  • TO COME SEE US
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:47.270
  • BECAUSE YOU ACTED LIKE
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:48.290
  • YOU WERE EXCITED TO BE THERE?
  • 00:01:48.290 --> 00:01:50.090
  • WHY DID YOU COME SEE US?
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:51.160
  • Robert: YOU WERE ABOUT
  • 00:01:51.160 --> 00:01:52.200
  • THE MOST FAMOUS PREACHER
  • 00:01:52.200 --> 00:01:53.210
  • ON EARTH AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:54.240
  • THAT'S WHY.
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:55.280
  • YOU WERE MY HERO.
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:01:57.020
  • YOU PREACHED CRUSADES,
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:58.040
  • GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE SAVED.
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:00.130
  • I MET YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:02.180
  • TEN YEARS BEFORE THAT,
  • 00:02:02.180 --> 00:02:03.270
  • I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD.
  • 00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:05.070
  • YOU CAME TO LONGVIEW, TEXAS
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:06.170
  • AND YOU CAME AND PREACHED
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:09.160
  • AT THE CHURCH
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:10.210
  • ON SUNDAY MORNING
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:11.250
  • WHERE I WAS ATTENDING.
  • 00:02:11.250 --> 00:02:12.280
  • SLIM SULLIVAN WAS THE PASTOR.
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:14.030
  • AND I TOLD YOU,
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:18.070
  • "WHEN I GROW UP, I'M GOING
  • 00:02:18.070 --> 00:02:19.090
  • TO BE A PREACHER LIKE YOU."
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:20.280
  • AND YOU ACTUALLY SAID,
  • 00:02:20.280 --> 00:02:22.020
  • "GREAT!"
  • 00:02:22.020 --> 00:02:23.060
  • THAT ENCOURAGED ME.
  • 00:02:23.060 --> 00:02:24.100
  • YOU SIGNED MY BIBLE FOR ME
  • 00:02:24.100 --> 00:02:25.170
  • WHEN I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD.
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:26.250
  • James: I'M GLAD
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:27.290
  • YOU REMEMBER ALL THAT
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:29.030
  • BECAUSE I WELL REMEMBER IT.
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:30.070
  • ROBERT CAME HERE,
  • 00:02:30.070 --> 00:02:32.120
  • MANY OF YOU DON'T KNOW THIS.
  • 00:02:32.120 --> 00:02:33.140
  • THIS IS WHERE HE FIRST
  • 00:02:33.140 --> 00:02:34.180
  • TAUGHT THE BLESSED LIFE .
  • 00:02:34.180 --> 00:02:35.200
  • WHEN HE CAME HERE
  • 00:02:35.200 --> 00:02:36.250
  • HE WAS KIND OF
  • 00:02:36.250 --> 00:02:38.000
  • A HIDDEN BEHIND-THE-SCENES
  • 00:02:38.000 --> 00:02:39.020
  • ASSOCIATE AT A CHURCH
  • 00:02:39.020 --> 00:02:40.050
  • IN ANOTHER TOWN NEARBY,
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:41.070
  • GRAND PRAIRIE;
  • 00:02:41.070 --> 00:02:42.150
  • HE WOULD COME HERE AND SHARE.
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:44.000
  • LET'S GO BACK AND
  • 00:02:44.000 --> 00:02:45.050
  • I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT ROBERT
  • 00:02:45.050 --> 00:02:46.100
  • WHEN HE CAME HERE
  • 00:02:46.100 --> 00:02:47.150
  • NEARLY 40 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:48.200
  • LET'S JUST SEE
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:49.250
  • HOW WE GREETED THEN.
  • 00:02:49.250 --> 00:02:51.000
  • James: AND IF WE'LL BE
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:54.210
  • HONEST ENOUGH TO ADMIT IT,
  • 00:02:54.210 --> 00:02:56.060
  • SOMETIMES WE'RE A PRISONER
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:58.050
  • TO OUR DESIRES.
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:02:59.200
  • THAT IS NOT FREEDOM.
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:00.250
  • SHE SAID, DADDY,
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:02.000
  • YOU'RE SO DIFFERENT.
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:03.180
  • Betty: I MENTIONED
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:04.230
  • A WHILE AGO ABOUT
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:05.280
  • A COMPASSIONATE HEART.
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:07.030
  • Robert: I COVERED IT UP
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:08.080
  • BY ACTING LIKE
  • 00:03:08.080 --> 00:03:09.130
  • I KNEW EVERYTHING
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:10.180
  • AND I COULD DO EVERYTHING.
  • 00:03:10.180 --> 00:03:11.230
  • THERE WAS TREMENDOUS PRIDE.
  • 00:03:11.230 --> 00:03:12.280
  • I WANT YOU TO THINK
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:14.030
  • ABOUT THIS: MANY, MANY TIMES,
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.080
  • THIS IS WHAT WE THINK.
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:16.130
  • MY HEART IS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:16.130 --> 00:03:17.180
  • THE REASON
  • 00:03:17.180 --> 00:03:18.230
  • MY HEART IS IN HEAVEN
  • 00:03:18.230 --> 00:03:19.280
  • IS BECAUSE MY TREASURE
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.030
  • [Applause]
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:27.020
  • James: Y'ALL LOOK AT HIM!
  • 00:03:27.020 --> 00:03:28.190
  • Robert: LOOK!
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:30.000
  • LOOK AT THAT FLAT STOMACH.
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:31.080
  • James: YEAH!
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:32.180
  • AND YOUR HAIR WAS BROWN
  • 00:03:32.180 --> 00:03:33.250
  • AND MINE WAS BLACK.
  • 00:03:33.250 --> 00:03:35.000
  • DID YOU NOTICE?
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:36.040
  • Betty: MINE'S STILL
  • 00:03:36.040 --> 00:03:37.090
  • THE SAME COLOR.
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:38.100
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:41.270
  • James: HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:03:41.270 --> 00:03:43.080
  • YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER GREAT BOOK,
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:46.270
  • TAKE THE DAY OFF .
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:48.130
  • THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:03:48.130 --> 00:03:49.190
  • WHAT ARE YOU IMPLYING
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:50.270
  • AND WHAT DO YOU WANT US
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:52.050
  • TO GET RIGHT UPFRONT,
  • 00:03:52.050 --> 00:03:53.090
  • TAKE THE DAY OFF ?
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:54.160
  • Robert: I'LL GO
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:55.230
  • STRAIGHT TO IT.
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:57.070
  • THIS IS REALLY ABOUT
  • 00:03:57.070 --> 00:03:58.130
  • THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT.
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:03:59.190
  • GOD CAME OUT
  • 00:03:59.190 --> 00:04:01.000
  • WITH A TOP TEN LIST
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:02.040
  • BEFORE DAVID LETTERMAN
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:03.070
  • OR ANY OF THOSE COMEDIANS
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:04.100
  • ON TV.
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:05.240
  • HE SAID, "THESE ARE
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:06.290
  • MY TOP TEN PRINCIPLES SO
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:08.290
  • YOU CAN HAVE A BETTER LIFE."
  • 00:04:08.290 --> 00:04:10.240
  • I WANT PEOPLE
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:12.020
  • TO UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:13.080
  • BECAUSE GOD WASN'T SAYING,
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:14.140
  • LISTEN IF YOU'LL START
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:15.220
  • ACTING RIGHT I'LL SET
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:17.100
  • YOU FREE FROM BONDAGE.
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:18.260
  • THEY WERE IN BONDAGE
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:20.050
  • TO THE EGYPTIANS.
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:21.080
  • HERE'S GOD'S GRACE,
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.110
  • I'LL SET YOU FREE AND NOW
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.150
  • I'LL GIVE YOU PRINCIPLES
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:26.060
  • WHERE YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:27.140
  • A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH ME
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:28.190
  • AND A BETTER RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:29.240
  • WITH OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:30.270
  • James: AND HE SAID
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:31.280
  • YOU'LL GET TO STAY A LONG TIME
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:33.010
  • IN THIS FRUITFUL LAND.
  • 00:04:33.010 --> 00:04:34.050
  • Robert: ALL OF THEM
  • 00:04:34.050 --> 00:04:35.130
  • WERE FOR OUR BENEFIT.
  • 00:04:35.130 --> 00:04:36.220
  • James: YEAH, EXACTLY!
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:38.010
  • Robert: NOT COMMITTING
  • 00:04:38.010 --> 00:04:39.050
  • NOT LYING IS FOR OUR BENEFIT
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:41.160
  • BECAUSE IT HURTS US
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:42.200
  • AND IT HURTS PEOPLE AROUND US.
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:43.250
  • NOT STEALING
  • 00:04:43.250 --> 00:04:44.250
  • IS FOR OUR BENEFIT.
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:45.280
  • THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT,
  • 00:04:47.030 --> 00:04:48.080
  • WHICH IS
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:49.120
  • THE LONGEST COMMANDMENT
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:50.150
  • ABOUT REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY
  • 00:04:50.150 --> 00:04:51.170
  • FOR IT IS A DAY OF REST
  • 00:04:51.170 --> 00:04:53.140
  • IS WHAT IT SAYS.
  • 00:04:53.140 --> 00:04:54.210
  • BUT I'M GOING TO SHOCK YOU.
  • 00:04:54.210 --> 00:04:55.220
  • I'M A PASTOR.
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:04:56.230
  • BUT THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:04:57.260
  • DOES NOT SAY ANYTHING
  • 00:04:57.260 --> 00:04:59.100
  • ABOUT GOING TO CHURCH.
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:01.220
  • NOTHING!
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:03.050
  • NOW I BELIEVE
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:04.080
  • WE SHOULD GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:05.150
  • Y'ALL KEEP COMING TO CHURCH.
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:06.170
  • I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:05:06.170 --> 00:05:07.190
  • BUT IT DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:08.230
  • ABOUT COMING TO CHURCH.
  • 00:05:08.230 --> 00:05:09.250
  • IT SAYS REST
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:11.020
  • AND THE WORD SABBATH MEANS:
  • 00:05:11.020 --> 00:05:13.010
  • CEASE FROM LABOR.
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:15.140
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:16.160
  • "I DON'T WANT YOU WORKING.
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:17.200
  • I DON'T WANT
  • 00:05:17.200 --> 00:05:18.220
  • YOUR WIFE WORKING.
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:19.240
  • I DON'T WANT ANY
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:20.260
  • OF YOUR SERVANTS WORKING."
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:21.280
  • AND THEN HE EVEN SAYS,
  • 00:05:21.280 --> 00:05:23.040
  • "I DON'T EVEN WANT
  • 00:05:23.040 --> 00:05:24.060
  • YOUR COWS WORKING."
  • 00:05:24.060 --> 00:05:25.080
  • ONE DAY A WEEK.
  • 00:05:25.080 --> 00:05:26.100
  • AND IT SAYS,
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:27.120
  • "BECAUSE GOD CREATED THE WORLD
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:30.210
  • IN SIX DAYS
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:32.040
  • AND ON THE SEVENTH HE RESTED."
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:34.090
  • NOW HERE'S A BIG ONE,
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:35.230
  • "AND WAS REFRESHED."
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:38.080
  • NOW THEOLOGICALLY,
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:39.280
  • THAT'S TOUGH TO EXPLAIN.
  • 00:05:39.280 --> 00:05:41.170
  • HOW COULD A GOD
  • 00:05:41.170 --> 00:05:42.240
  • WHO NEVER GETS TIRED
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:44.040
  • BE REFRESHED?
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:45.160
  • WELL, THAT WORD IN THE HEBREW
  • 00:05:45.160 --> 00:05:46.250
  • MEANS TOOK A BREATH,
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:48.060
  • OR BREATHED IN.
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:49.260
  • WHAT HAD HE BEEN DOING
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:51.070
  • FOR SIX DAYS?
  • 00:05:51.070 --> 00:05:52.100
  • CREATING.
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.110
  • HOW DOES GOD CREATE?
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:54.160
  • HE SPEAKS.
  • 00:05:54.160 --> 00:05:55.200
  • FOR SIX DAYS
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:56.270
  • HE HAD BEEN BREATHING OUT.
  • 00:05:56.270 --> 00:05:58.030
  • HE BREATHED INTO MAN
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:05:59.260
  • THE BREATH OF LIFE.
  • 00:05:59.260 --> 00:06:01.090
  • HE HAD BEEN BREATHING OUT.
  • 00:06:01.090 --> 00:06:02.150
  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:03.250
  • HE BREATHED IN,
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.210
  • AND HE, GOD, WAS REFRESHED.
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:08.100
  • IT'S AMAZING!
  • 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:09.220
  • SO HE GAVE THIS AS A GIFT.
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:11.060
  • HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:06:11.060 --> 00:06:12.080
  • DO WE EVEN SAY THAT?
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:13.080
  • BOY, IF I COULD
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:14.110
  • JUST CATCH MY BREATH.
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:15.120
  • AND YET GOD GAVE US A GIFT
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:17.120
  • OF A DAY OFF EVERY WEEK.
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:19.220
  • AND HERE'S WHAT HE SAYS,
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:21.000
  • "I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOUR WORK.
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:22.290
  • I'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:24.030
  • JUST TRUST ME."
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:25.090
  • AND YET WE DON'T EVALUATE,
  • 00:06:25.090 --> 00:06:28.050
  • DON'T TAKE ADVANTAGE
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.220
  • OF THIS GIFT
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:31.010
  • THAT GOD'S GIVEN US.
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:32.030
  • AND ONE OTHER THING
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:33.060
  • ABOUT THE COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:34.070
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:35.080
  • THROUGH ALL OF THEM
  • 00:06:35.080 --> 00:06:36.090
  • BUT THERE'S NO WAY
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:37.110
  • I COULD TALK YOU --
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:38.150
  • I'VE KNOWN YOU 40 YEARS.
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:39.200
  • THERE IS NO WAY
  • 00:06:39.200 --> 00:06:40.250
  • I COULD TALK YOU INTO
  • 00:06:40.250 --> 00:06:41.280
  • BREAKING ANY OF THE OTHER
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:43.040
  • TEN COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:44.080
  • James: YOU COULDN'T.
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.080
  • THE ENEMY WOULD TRY TO.
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:46.100
  • THE DECEIVER WOULD.
  • 00:06:46.100 --> 00:06:47.150
  • Robert: BUT I COULDN'T
  • 00:06:47.150 --> 00:06:48.190
  • TALK YOU INTO TELLING A LIE.
  • 00:06:48.190 --> 00:06:49.250
  • YOU'D SAY, "THAT'S NOT RIGHT,
  • 00:06:49.250 --> 00:06:51.050
  • PASTOR ROBERT,
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:52.130
  • I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT."
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.170
  • I COULDN'T TALK YOU
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:54.190
  • INTO STEALING,
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:06:55.200
  • COMMITTING ADULTERY, MURDER
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:56.210
  • -- I COULDN'T TALK YOU
  • 00:06:56.210 --> 00:06:57.220
  • INTO THAT.
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:58.230
  • MIGHT HAVE TALKED BETTY
  • 00:06:58.230 --> 00:06:59.240
  • INTO IT A FEW TIMES
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:00.270
  • IN YOUR CASE --
  • 00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:01.280
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:07:01.280 --> 00:07:02.290
  • BUT YOU'VE GOTTEN BETTER.
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:04.000
  • SO I COULDN'T TALK YOU INTO
  • 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:05.010
  • TAKING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN.
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:06.110
  • YOU WOULDN'T DO
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:07.120
  • SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:07:07.120 --> 00:07:08.130
  • BUT EVEN YOU
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:09.170
  • AND I SOMETIMES
  • 00:07:09.170 --> 00:07:11.070
  • DON'T REST ONE DAY A WEEK.
  • 00:07:11.070 --> 00:07:12.240
  • IT IS LIKE
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:13.260
  • THE ONLY COMMANDMENT
  • 00:07:13.260 --> 00:07:14.260
  • THAT WE AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:16.010
  • DON'T THINK WE SHOULD KEEP.
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:17.180
  • Betty: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:20.020
  • James: YOU KNOW WHY SHE SAID
  • 00:07:20.020 --> 00:07:21.060
  • "THAT'S RIGHT" FOR?
  • 00:07:21.060 --> 00:07:22.100
  • CONFESSING ME.
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:23.140
  • THAT'S WHAT SHE'S DOING.
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:24.190
  • Betty: I'M GETTING GOOD
  • 00:07:24.190 --> 00:07:25.230
  • James: YOU HAVE.
  • 00:07:26.260 --> 00:07:28.000
  • THEY ASKED IN SUNDAY SCHOOL
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:29.060
  • WHEN WE WERE TEENAGERS, SAID,
  • 00:07:29.060 --> 00:07:30.110
  • "MAKE A LIST OF YOUR SINS."
  • 00:07:30.110 --> 00:07:32.050
  • SHE GOES HOME
  • 00:07:32.050 --> 00:07:33.100
  • SO SHE STARTED
  • 00:07:34.110 --> 00:07:35.100
  • WRITING MINE DOWN.
  • 00:07:35.100 --> 00:07:36.170
  • Betty: BOY,
  • 00:07:36.170 --> 00:07:37.190
  • I HAD QUITE A LIST.
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:38.190
  • Robert: SHE RAN OUT OF PAPER.
  • 00:07:38.190 --> 00:07:39.250
  • James: SHE DID!
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:40.260
  • SHE HAD TO GO GET MORE PAPER.
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:42.030
  • ALL RIGHT, HERE IS THE DEAL.
  • 00:07:42.030 --> 00:07:43.130
  • THE FACT THAT
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:44.160
  • I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT,
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:46.100
  • I THINK WAS PROBABLY
  • 00:07:46.100 --> 00:07:47.170
  • AS GREAT A CONTRIBUTOR
  • 00:07:47.170 --> 00:07:48.190
  • TO ME NEARLY BEING DESTROYED
  • 00:07:48.190 --> 00:07:51.100
  • AS ANYTHING
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:53.100
  • THAT EVER DISTRACTED ME
  • 00:07:53.100 --> 00:07:55.140
  • FROM THE WILL OF GOD
  • 00:07:55.140 --> 00:07:56.190
  • AND THE PURPOSE OF GOD.
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:57.260
  • I --
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:08:00.100
  • YOU SAW HOW BUSY I WAS
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:02.040
  • BECAUSE YOU WERE WITH ME.
  • 00:08:02.040 --> 00:08:03.170
  • TRAVELING WITH YOU BEFORE
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:05.180
  • YOU HAD THE BREAKTHROUGH
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:06.210
  • AND YOU WERE ALL THE TIME
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:07.220
  • EVERYWHERE IN CITY AFTER CITY
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:08.290
  • AND YOU WERE TIRED.
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:10.210
  • BY THE ENEMY
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:13.020
  • BECAUSE HE ATTACKS US
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.060
  • WHEN WE'RE TIRED.
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:15.130
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:08:15.130 --> 00:08:16.230
  • "AFTER JESUS FASTED 40 DAYS
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:17.260
  • THE ENEMY ATTACKED."
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:19.010
  • AND EVEN AFTER THE ATTACK
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.090
  • THAT JESUS WON IT SAYS,
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:22.100
  • "THE ENEMY LEFT
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:23.150
  • FOR A MORE OPPORTUNE TIME."
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:25.060
  • IN OTHER WORDS, POSSIBLY
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:26.110
  • MAYBE EVEN ANOTHER TIME
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:27.170
  • WHEN HE WOULD BE TIRED.
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:29.060
  • HE ATTACKED HIM IN THE GARDEN
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:30.090
  • WE KNOW.
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:31.130
  • HE WAS EXHAUSTED.
  • 00:08:31.130 --> 00:08:32.190
  • HE HAD BEEN BEATEN.
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:33.200
  • HE HAD GONE THROUGH
  • 00:08:33.200 --> 00:08:34.280
  • THESE DIFFICULT THINGS,
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:36.020
  • WHEN HE GOT TO THE CROSS,
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.090
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:39.190
  • IT'S JUST AMAZING
  • 00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:41.240
  • HOW THE ENEMY KNOWS,
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:44.130
  • "I'M GOING TO ATTACK THEM
  • 00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:45.190
  • WHEN THEY'RE DOWN"
  • 00:08:45.190 --> 00:08:46.220
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:08:46.220 --> 00:08:47.250
  • "I'VE COME UP WITH A PLAN
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:49.020
  • FOR YOU TO BE RESTED
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:50.070
  • AND REFRESHED."
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:51.140
  • AND YET WE DON'T DO IT.
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:53.070
  • James: WELL,
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:54.170
  • YOU SAW HOW BUSY I STAYED.
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:08:55.180
  • I WAS SPEAKING FOUR
  • 00:08:55.180 --> 00:08:56.210
  • AND FIVE TIMES A DAY
  • 00:08:56.210 --> 00:08:57.210
  • AND THEN IN THE COLISEUMS,
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:08:58.240
  • STADIUM, CRUSADE AT NIGHT,
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:08:59.260
  • THREE NIGHTS A WEEK
  • 00:08:59.260 --> 00:09:00.280
  • AFTER THE CRUSADE SERVICE
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:02.010
  • I'D HAVE A FELLOWSHIP,
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:03.010
  • ALL THE YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:09:03.010 --> 00:09:04.030
  • WOULD STAY.
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:05.060
  • SO I'M JUST GOING CONTINUOUSLY
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:06.060
  • AND I WAS DOING THIS 250
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:07.120
  • TO NEARLY 300 DAYS A YEAR
  • 00:09:07.120 --> 00:09:09.050
  • AND IT WENT FOR 25 YEARS.
  • 00:09:09.050 --> 00:09:10.220
  • AND TO SAY I WAS EXHAUSTED
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:11.290
  • IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
  • 00:09:11.290 --> 00:09:14.040
  • AND INTERESTINGLY, WHEN I WAS
  • 00:09:14.040 --> 00:09:16.020
  • SO IN LOVE WITH JESUS,
  • 00:09:16.020 --> 00:09:17.050
  • HE SHOWED ME
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:18.080
  • WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO.
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:19.120
  • I TOLD HIM I DIDN'T CARE
  • 00:09:19.120 --> 00:09:20.160
  • WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO,
  • 00:09:20.160 --> 00:09:21.220
  • I'M GOING TO COME
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:22.250
  • RIGHT BACK HERE
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:23.280
  • ALONE IN THE PINEY WOODS
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:25.010
  • AND JUST LOVE YOU.
  • 00:09:25.010 --> 00:09:26.040
  • AND IT WAS LIKE HE SAID,
  • 00:09:26.040 --> 00:09:27.090
  • "REALLY?"
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:29.120
  • AND I DIDN'T GO BACK.
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:31.010
  • YOU KNOW THAT.
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:32.140
  • I REACHED A PLACE
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:33.170
  • WHERE I WAS VERY VULNERABLE.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:34.200
  • I HAD THE GIFT OF THE SPIRIT
  • 00:09:34.200 --> 00:09:36.070
  • TO PREACH,
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:37.110
  • I DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:38.130
  • THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:39.160
  • I WASN'T KIND.
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:40.200
  • I WASN'T PATIENT.
  • 00:09:40.200 --> 00:09:41.210
  • I WASN'T LOVING.
  • 00:09:41.210 --> 00:09:42.230
  • I WASN'T GENTLE.
  • 00:09:42.230 --> 00:09:43.240
  • THERE WASN'T ANYTHING...
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:44.270
  • AND ACTUALLY, A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:09:44.270 --> 00:09:46.000
  • I GOT MORE ANGRY
  • 00:09:46.000 --> 00:09:47.030
  • BECAUSE I FELT LIKE
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:48.060
  • I WAS SHOUTING AT THE DEMONS
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:49.100
  • THAT WERE TORMENTING ME
  • 00:09:49.100 --> 00:09:50.130
  • BECAUSE I WAS SO VULNERABLE
  • 00:09:50.130 --> 00:09:51.160
  • TO ALL THE STUFF
  • 00:09:51.160 --> 00:09:52.190
  • THEY WERE THROWING AT ME.
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:53.220
  • AND I REALLY PREACHED A PLACE
  • 00:09:53.220 --> 00:09:54.260
  • THAT I WAS SO DEFEATED,
  • 00:09:54.260 --> 00:09:55.290
  • I DESPAIRED OF LIFE.

  • NOW, YOU ALSO EXPERIENCED
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:09:59.130

  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:02.060
  • WHEN A CHURCH IS GROWING
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:03.190
  • AND WHEN YOU ALSO HAVE
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:05.000

  • KIND OF MADE IT CLEAR
  • 00:10:09.270 --> 00:10:11.080
  • WHEN YOU CAME IN HERE
  • 00:10:11.080 --> 00:10:12.280

  • WE SPENT A LOT OF OUR LIFE
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:23.200
  • MINISTERING TO LEADERS
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:25.000

  • MOST OF THEM WERE EXHAUSTED.
  • 00:10:29.200 --> 00:10:31.020
  • MOST OF THEM WERE VULNERABLE
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:32.260
  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T GET IN
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:34.040

  • FEEDING THROUGH THE SCHOOLS
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:05.020

  • SO IT WORKS
  • 00:12:13.240 --> 00:12:14.240
  • ALL THE WAY AROUND.
  • 00:12:14.240 --> 00:12:15.280
  • BUT I WAS
  • 00:12:15.280 --> 00:12:17.020
  • SO EMOTIONALLY DRAINED
  • 00:12:17.020 --> 00:12:18.060
  • AND I HADN'T BEEN BACK
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:19.100
  • LONG FROM THAT TRIP
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:20.140
  • AND I WENT RIGHT BACK TO WORK.
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:21.190
  • AND SO I -- OH!
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:22.230
  • I HATE TO TELL THIS STORY
  • 00:12:22.230 --> 00:12:23.270
  • ON TELEVISION.
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:25.000
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU ASKED ME.
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:26.130
  • James: WELL,

  • PUT IT IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:12:29.230 --> 00:12:30.240
  • I CALLED IT "THE GREAT
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:31.280
  • UNDERWEAR CRISIS OF 2005."
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:33.190
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:35.000
  • AND HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:36.080
  • SO I GET BACK FROM THAT TRIP
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:37.240
  • AND I'M GOING RIGHT BACK
  • 00:12:37.240 --> 00:12:39.030
  • TO THE OFFICE, TAKE MY SHOWER,
  • 00:12:39.030 --> 00:12:40.230
  • OPEN MY DRAWER,
  • 00:12:40.230 --> 00:12:41.280
  • MY UNDERWEAR DRAWER
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:43.030
  • AND THERE IS
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:44.080
  • ONE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR.
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:45.220
  • AND I STAND THERE THINKING,
  • 00:12:47.150 --> 00:12:50.150
  • WHAT AM I GOING
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:51.230
  • TO DO TOMORROW?
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:53.030
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:56.010
  • AND MY MIND WAS SO TIRED --
  • 00:12:56.020 --> 00:12:59.020
  • SEE THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE,
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:00.120
  • IT'S NOT JUST OUR BODIES.
  • 00:13:00.120 --> 00:13:01.140
  • MY MIND WAS SO TIRED
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:04.090
  • I COULDN'T THINK
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:05.200
  • THAT I COULD WASH,
  • 00:13:06.010 --> 00:13:09.010
  • I CAN GO TO WAL-MART
  • 00:13:09.010 --> 00:13:10.180
  • AND BUY 12 PAIRS FOR $0.97.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:12.010
  • I COULDN'T THINK THAT.
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:14.190
  • I JUST THOUGHT,
  • 00:13:14.190 --> 00:13:16.150
  • I'M NOT GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:13:16.150 --> 00:13:17.250
  • UNDERWEAR TOMORROW.
  • 00:13:17.250 --> 00:13:19.010
  • I REMEMBER THINKING,
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:20.090
  • PASTORS SHOULD WEAR UNDERWEAR.
  • 00:13:20.090 --> 00:13:21.200
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:23.020
  • SO I PUT MY UNDERWEAR ON.
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:25.160
  • I KNOW THIS IS HORRIBLE STORY
  • 00:13:25.160 --> 00:13:27.140
  • TO TELL AND THE IMAGE
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:29.040
  • IS NOW IN PEOPLE'S MINDS.
  • 00:13:29.040 --> 00:13:30.260
  • I PUT MY UNDER WEAR ON,
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.210
  • OPEN MY SOCK DRAWER
  • 00:13:32.210 --> 00:13:34.030
  • AND THERE WERE NO SOCKS.
  • 00:13:34.030 --> 00:13:37.010
  • I STARTED CRYING.
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:39.150
  • I WAS EMOTIONALLY EXHAUSTED,
  • 00:13:39.150 --> 00:13:41.080
  • NOT JUST MENTALLY,
  • 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:42.190
  • PHYSICALLY, SPIRITUALLY,
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:44.090
  • I WAS EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:46.000
  • SO EXHAUSTED.
  • 00:13:46.000 --> 00:13:47.210
  • I SAT DOWN IN MY CLOSET
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:49.050
  • AND CRIED
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:50.110
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE SOCKS.
  • 00:13:50.110 --> 00:13:51.190
  • AND I WENT TO LUNCH
  • 00:13:51.190 --> 00:13:52.260
  • WITH TOM LANE THAT DAY --
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:54.000
  • YOU KNOW TOM,
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:55.070
  • HE'S BEEN WITH ME FOR YEARS.
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:56.140
  • AND I LEANED OVER TO HIM
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:13:57.160
  • AND I SAID, "TOM,
  • 00:13:57.160 --> 00:13:58.230
  • I'M LOSING MY MIND."
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:01.140
  • I SAID, "I CRIED
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:03.000
  • OVER UNDERWEAR TODAY."
  • 00:14:03.000 --> 00:14:05.000
  • HE SAID, "ROBERT,
  • 00:14:05.000 --> 00:14:06.080
  • YOU'RE NOT LOSING YOUR MIND,
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:07.140
  • YOU'RE TIRED.
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:08.260
  • YOU'RE TIRED."
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:10.120
  • AND SO I TALKED TO THE ELDERS
  • 00:14:10.120 --> 00:14:12.110
  • AND I WENT ON
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:13.220
  • MY FIRST SABBATICAL.
  • 00:14:13.220 --> 00:14:15.060
  • AND DURING THAT SABBATICAL,
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:17.010
  • THEY DECIDED EIGHT WEEKS --
  • 00:14:17.010 --> 00:14:19.030
  • EIGHT WEEKS
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:20.150
  • EIGHT WEEKS OFF.
  • 00:14:21.240 --> 00:14:23.020
  • I TOOK --
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:24.050
  • YOU KNOW MISSIONARIES
  • 00:14:24.050 --> 00:14:25.120
  • TAKE TIME OFF.
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:26.170
  • SO I TOOK TIME OFF.
  • 00:14:26.170 --> 00:14:27.270
  • I FELT LIKE MYSELF AGAIN.
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:31.260
  • I THOUGHT,
  • 00:14:31.260 --> 00:14:33.020
  • I FEEL LIKE ME AGAIN.
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.080
  • AND THE LORD SAID TO ME,
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:35.140
  • "WHAT IS TODAY?
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:36.200
  • WHICH DAY IS TODAY?"
  • 00:14:36.200 --> 00:14:37.250
  • I SAID,
  • 00:14:37.250 --> 00:14:39.010
  • "IT IS THE 53RD DAY."
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.120
  • BECAUSE I JUST KNEW
  • 00:14:40.120 --> 00:14:41.180
  • THAT I HAD SO MANY DAYS LEFT.
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:43.130
  • AND THE LORD SAID, "UH-HUH.
  • 00:14:43.130 --> 00:14:45.290
  • YOU OWED 52 DAYS.
  • 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:49.120
  • YOU OWED
  • 00:14:49.120 --> 00:14:50.200
  • ONE YEAR OF SABBATHS."
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:53.020
  • I SAID TO THE LORD,
  • 00:14:53.020 --> 00:14:54.160
  • "YOU MEAN I OWED YOU 52 DAYS?"
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:57.250
  • HE SAID, "OH NO, NO, NO, SON.
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:14:59.160
  • THE SABBATH ISN'T FOR ME.
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:01.060
  • IT'S FOR YOU."
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:02.260
  • HE SAID, "YOU OWED YOURSELF
  • 00:15:02.260 --> 00:15:04.240
  • 52 DAYS."
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:06.260
  • AND THIS ONE SIMPLE PRINCIPLE
  • 00:15:07.110 --> 00:15:10.110
  • OF RESTING ONE DAY A WEEK HAS,
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:13.140
  • I BELIEVE KEPT ME
  • 00:15:13.140 --> 00:15:15.000
  • IN THE MINISTRY
  • 00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:16.060
  • AND KEPT ME EFFECTIVE
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:17.070
  • FOR ALL THESE YEARS NOW.
  • 00:15:17.070 --> 00:15:18.120
  • James: AND YOU GO INTO
  • 00:15:18.120 --> 00:15:19.200
  • GREAT DETAIL TO EXPLAIN IT.
  • 00:15:19.200 --> 00:15:20.250
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK TO ROBERT
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:22.000
  • ON ANOTHER PROGRAM AND
  • 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:23.050
  • I WANT US TO BREAK THIS OUT
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.110
  • AND YOU EVEN HAD
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.190
  • SOME WORDS FOR ME.
  • 00:15:25.190 --> 00:15:26.270
  • I TRIED TO EXPLAIN WHAT IT IS
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:28.180
  • THAT I'M DEALING WITH
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:29.240
  • AND I THINK
  • 00:15:29.240 --> 00:15:31.000
  • BECAUSE ALL OF US
  • 00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:33.050
  • HAVE SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:34.080
  • WE'RE DEALING WITH
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:35.120
  • THAT WE JUSTIFY MAYBE
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:36.170
  • BREAKING THE SABBATH, NOT
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:37.180
  • REALIZING WHAT WE'RE DOING,
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:38.260
  • HOW IT IS SETTING US BACK.
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:41.070
  • BUT ALSO,
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:42.080
  • WE'LL TALK IN MORE DETAIL
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:43.100
  • ABOUT HOW YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:44.150
  • DO BEHAVE, LET'S SAY,
  • 00:15:44.150 --> 00:15:45.220
  • A REST ON THE SABBATH.
  • 00:15:45.220 --> 00:15:47.050
  • WHAT THAT REALLY DOES
  • 00:15:47.050 --> 00:15:48.130
  • LOOK LIKE.
  • 00:15:48.130 --> 00:15:49.160
  • ANYTHING YOU WANT
  • 00:15:49.160 --> 00:15:50.170
  • TO ASK ROBERT
  • 00:15:50.170 --> 00:15:51.200
  • BETTY?
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:53.240
  • Betty: WHAT
  • 00:15:53.240 --> 00:15:54.260
  • I'M HEARING YOU SAY IS
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:15:56.010
  • IT'S NOT JUST AN IDEA
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:15:57.070
  • OF TAKING A DAY OFF,
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:58.090
  • IT IS VERY IMPORTANT
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:15:59.120
  • AND OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:01.160
  • AND OUR JOURNEY THAT WE'RE ON.
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:02.190
  • Robert: AND IT IS NOT ONLY
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:03.270
  • IMPORTANT TO -- IT IS US,
  • 00:16:05.130 --> 00:16:08.130
  • I AGREE WITH, ALL THAT,
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:10.100
  • BUT WHAT I WANTED TO ADD TO,
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.180
  • WHEN YOU SAID
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:12.260
  • THAT 25 YEARS YOU WENT,
  • 00:16:12.260 --> 00:16:14.270
  • AND I'VE HEARD YOU SAY THIS
  • 00:16:14.270 --> 00:16:16.020
  • SO I'M NOT UNCOVERING YOU
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:17.070
  • RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:18.150
  • BUT YOU SAID IT HURT BETTY,
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:20.130
  • IT HURT YOUR CHILDREN SOME.
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:22.000
  • YOU HAVE GREAT CHILDREN,
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:23.060
  • GRANDCHILDREN, PROBABLY
  • 00:16:23.060 --> 00:16:24.180
  • REALLY BECAUSE OF BETTY.
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:26.070
  • BUT YOU WEREN'T AROUND MUCH.
  • 00:16:26.070 --> 00:16:27.190
  • James: AND PEOPLE
  • 00:16:27.190 --> 00:16:28.240
  • PRAYING FOR US.
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:29.280
  • Robert: YES!
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:31.020
  • AND PEOPLE PRAYING FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:31.020 --> 00:16:32.060
  • AND WHEN YOU WERE,
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:33.110
  • YOU PROBABLY WERE MORE
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:34.190
  • EMOTIONALLY EXHAUSTED
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:35.260
  • AND YOU COULDN'T
  • 00:16:35.260 --> 00:16:37.020
  • GIVE YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:16:37.020 --> 00:16:38.070
  • AND YOUR WIFE,
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:39.150
  • AND I DON'T MEAN TO SAY THAT
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:40.260
  • IN A WRONG WAY
  • 00:16:40.260 --> 00:16:42.030
  • BECAUSE I'VE DONE IT TOO.
  • 00:16:42.030 --> 00:16:43.090
  • BUT I CAN REMEMBER
  • 00:16:43.090 --> 00:16:44.190
  • DEBBIE SAYING TO ME ONE TIME,
  • 00:16:44.190 --> 00:16:46.030
  • SHE SAID, "ROBERT,
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:47.180
  • WHEN YOU'RE WITH US,
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:48.280
  • I NEED YOU TO BE WITH US."
  • 00:16:48.280 --> 00:16:50.160
  • BECAUSE MY MIND
  • 00:16:50.160 --> 00:16:52.050
  • WAS STILL GOING.
  • 00:16:52.050 --> 00:16:53.180
  • SO IT NOT ONLY HURTS US
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:55.130
  • BUT IT AFFECTS OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:16:55.130 --> 00:16:57.220
  • WHEN THEY SEE THAT WORK
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:59.060
  • IS MORE IMPORTANT
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:00.110
  • THAN THEIR BALL GAME,
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:01.270
  • IT AFFECTS THEM.
  • 00:17:01.270 --> 00:17:03.030
  • TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:17:04.070 --> 00:17:05.130
  • ROBERT IS A GREAT PREACHER.
  • 00:17:05.130 --> 00:17:06.150
  • YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:17:06.150 --> 00:17:07.190
  • 25-35.000 PEOPLE COMING
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:09.020
  • EVERY WEEK AND HEARING YOU,
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:10.140
  • STRICTLY ON THE SCREEN
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:13.040
  • ON A SATELLITE CAST
  • 00:17:13.040 --> 00:17:14.090
  • BUT THEY KNOW ROBERT IS THERE
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.160
  • WITH THEM BECAUSE HE IS
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:16.240
  • POURING OUT THE LIFE OF GOD,
  • 00:17:16.240 --> 00:17:18.020
  • THE HEART OF GOD,
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:19.100
  • THE MIND OF GOD
  • 00:17:19.100 --> 00:17:20.170
  • IN SO MANY WAYS JUST
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:21.240
  • BECAUSE HE DOES LOVE THEM.
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:23.060
  • WHEN HE WRITES SOMETHING
  • 00:17:23.060 --> 00:17:24.180
  • LIKE THIS, IT'S BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:17:24.180 --> 00:17:25.260
  • BEEN WRITTEN IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:17:25.260 --> 00:17:27.050
  • AND THE TRUTH
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:28.140
  • IS BEGINNING TO CARRY HIM.
  • 00:17:28.140 --> 00:17:29.250
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO
  • 00:17:29.250 --> 00:17:31.020
  • SOME PRETTY SPECIFIC DETAILS.
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:32.090
  • ROBERT, WE'RE ASKING
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:33.220
  • ALL OF OUR VIEWERS
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:35.040
  • TO HELP FEED THESE KIDS --
  • 00:17:35.040 --> 00:17:36.200
  • HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF THEM.
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:38.110
  • WE'VE SAVED THE LIVES,
  • 00:17:38.110 --> 00:17:39.210
  • WHEN WE SAY 15 MILLION OR MORE
  • 00:17:39.210 --> 00:17:41.000
  • THAT'S NOT AN EXAGGERATION,
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:42.100
  • AND WE'VE WON MORE THAN THAT
  • 00:17:42.100 --> 00:17:43.170
  • TO THE LORD IN THOSE AREAS.
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:44.230
  • IT IS REALLY EFFECTIVE
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:45.280
  • BECAUSE THEY SEE
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:47.040
  • THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:47.040 --> 00:17:48.090
  • SO JUST TO SAY TO OUR VIEWERS,
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:49.160
  • I'M GOING TO SHOW THEM
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:50.240
  • AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:17:50.240 --> 00:17:52.020
  • BUT IF THEY SAY, "ROBERT,
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:53.070
  • DOES IT REALLY WORK?"
  • 00:17:53.070 --> 00:17:54.160
  • GATEWAY HELPS US
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:55.210
  • DO WHAT WE'RE DOING.
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:56.280
  • FROM THE TIME YOU SAW IT,
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:58.080
  • YOU AND YOUR ELDERS SAID,
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:17:59.140
  • "WE'VE NEVER SEEN MONEY
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:00.220
  • USED ANY BETTER THAN THIS,
  • 00:18:00.220 --> 00:18:01.250
  • PERIOD."
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:02.280
  • BUT FOR OUR VIEWERS, IS WHAT
  • 00:18:02.280 --> 00:18:04.030
  • THEY'RE DOING EFFECTIVE?
  • 00:18:04.030 --> 00:18:05.050
  • Robert: WELL,
  • 00:18:05.050 --> 00:18:06.080
  • I'D LIKE TO ACTUALLY SAY
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:07.100
  • BECAUSE I'VE BEEN THERE.
  • 00:18:07.100 --> 00:18:08.150
  • I'VE BEEN THERE
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:09.280
  • AND THE NEED IS GREAT.
  • 00:18:09.280 --> 00:18:11.060
  • WHAT YOU SEE IS A NEED.
  • 00:18:11.060 --> 00:18:12.130
  • WE WERE THERE WHEN CHILDREN
  • 00:18:12.150 --> 00:18:15.150
  • WERE DYING IN OUR ARMS,
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:18.040
  • IN OUR PRESENCE.
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:19.250
  • WE SAW THE NEED.
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:21.180
  • AND YOU CAN'T PREACH
  • 00:18:21.180 --> 00:18:22.230
  • THE GOSPEL TO THEM.
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:23.270
  • AND THEN THEIR PARENTS
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:25.080
  • HAVE NOT HEARD THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:18:25.080 --> 00:18:26.180
  • THEY'VE BEEN RAISED
  • 00:18:26.180 --> 00:18:28.130
  • IN A PAGAN RELIGION
  • 00:18:28.130 --> 00:18:30.000
  • AND THEY LOSE THESE CHILDREN
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:31.230
  • AND THEN WHATEVER
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:33.030
  • THEY HEAR ABOUT GOD
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.070
  • THEY'RE UPSET WITH GOD.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:35.160
  • LIFE OUTREACH ,
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:37.250
  • I'VE SAID THIS,
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:39.020
  • MANY, MANY TIMES,
  • 00:18:39.020 --> 00:18:40.080
  • IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:41.160
  • AND EFFICIENT MISSIONS
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:43.110
  • MINISTRIES YOU COULD GIVE TO.
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.070
  • I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.130
  • AT GATEWAY CHURCH TO GIVE.
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:47.170
  • AND YOU'VE HEARD THAT.
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:48.240
  • I BRING THEM TO YOUR BANQUET.
  • 00:18:48.240 --> 00:18:49.290
  • I ENCOURAGE THEM TO GIVE.
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:51.100
  • AND THE REASON IS
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:52.190
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE SAVING LIVES
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:54.010
  • AND SAVING SOULS AND IT WORKS.
  • 00:18:55.030 --> 00:18:58.030
  • SAW THOSE SCENES IN AFRICA
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:03.260
  • WE BOTH CONSIDERED
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:05.270
  • AND EVEN SAID
  • 00:19:05.270 --> 00:19:07.060
  • TO THE MISSIONARIES,
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:08.110
  • "I WONDER IF WE OUGHT
  • 00:19:08.110 --> 00:19:09.210
  • TO JUST COME OVER HERE
  • 00:19:09.210 --> 00:19:11.000
  • AND HELP YOU."
  • 00:19:11.000 --> 00:19:12.050
  • AND I MEAN THEY RESPONDED
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:13.130
  • SO QUICKLY, "NO PLEASE!
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:14.230
  • DON'T! NO.
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:16.050
  • WOULD YOU JUST GO BACK
  • 00:19:16.050 --> 00:19:18.150
  • AND WOULD YOU PLEASE
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:19.250
  • ASK PEOPLE WHO WATCH YOU
  • 00:19:19.250 --> 00:19:21.260
  • TO PLEASE HELP US
  • 00:19:21.260 --> 00:19:23.050
  • SO WE COULD STAY HERE
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:24.160
  • AND NOT BE EMPTY HANDED?
  • 00:19:24.160 --> 00:19:26.230
  • WOULD YOU PLEASE GO?"
  • 00:19:26.230 --> 00:19:28.020
  • AND, BETTY, WE CAME BACK
  • 00:19:28.020 --> 00:19:29.050
  • TO ASK OUR VIEWERS,
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:30.210
  • WOULD YOU HELP US
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:32.140
  • SUPPORT THOSE MISSIONARIES
  • 00:19:32.140 --> 00:19:33.270
  • THAT HAVE SO MUCH LOVE
  • 00:19:33.270 --> 00:19:35.070
  • FOR THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:36.160
  • AND SO LITTLE TO GIVE;
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:37.250
  • WOULD YOU DO IT?
  • 00:19:37.250 --> 00:19:39.060
  • BETTY, YOU STARTED PRAYING,
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:40.180
  • GOD, LET THE LINE TO HELP THEM
  • 00:19:40.180 --> 00:19:41.280
  • BE LONGER THAN THE LINE
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:43.100
  • TO RECEIVE.
  • 00:19:43.100 --> 00:19:44.230
  • I'M TELLING YOU, MIRACLES.
