  • Now is your time.
  • 00:00:25.190 --> 00:00:28.927
  • "the kingdom of God is at hand.
  • 00:00:53.351 --> 00:00:56.754
  • Can they be famous also?
  • 00:01:10.635 --> 00:01:12.904
  • How about these words?
  • 00:01:12.904 --> 00:01:14.339
  • "That's one small step for man,
  • 00:01:14.339 --> 00:01:17.242
  • What were those?
  • 00:01:20.245 --> 00:01:21.713
  • one giant leap for mankind.
  • 00:01:29.154 --> 00:01:32.223
  • so first words can be famous.
  • 00:01:35.727 --> 00:01:38.463
  • it's the gospel in a nutshell.
  • 00:01:46.905 --> 00:01:48.940
  • He said, "The time is fulfilled,
  • 00:01:48.940 --> 00:01:50.842
  • "the kingdom of God is at hand.
  • 00:01:50.842 --> 00:01:54.078
  • Think about this for a moment.
  • 00:02:09.694 --> 00:02:11.496
  • It's always now.
  • 00:02:11.496 --> 00:02:13.498
  • Have you ever noticed that?
  • 00:02:16.467 --> 00:02:17.936
  • think about it later.
  • 00:02:30.248 --> 00:02:31.516
  • and when it comes to the Bible,
  • 00:02:34.485 --> 00:02:36.421
  • when it comes to repentance
  • 00:02:39.123 --> 00:02:41.459
  • "Today is the day of Salvation."
  • 00:02:51.102 --> 00:02:53.204
  • very, very important concept.
  • 00:02:56.040 --> 00:02:58.343
  • they put the word now.
  • 00:03:11.122 --> 00:03:13.191
  • So now is the acceptable time.
  • 00:03:16.894 --> 00:03:19.998
  • a number of people buy my books
  • 00:03:40.218 --> 00:03:41.953
  • but I'll go to that same area,
  • 00:03:44.389 --> 00:03:46.057
  • So now is your time.
  • 00:04:09.180 --> 00:04:11.683
  • Now is the acceptable time.
  • 00:04:11.683 --> 00:04:13.851
  • Today is the day of salvation.
  • 00:04:13.851 --> 00:04:16.254
  • "the kingdom of God is at hand."
  • 00:04:24.262 --> 00:04:26.397
  • you can receive God's presence,
  • 00:04:30.034 --> 00:04:32.070
  • that something good will happen
  • 00:04:41.079 --> 00:04:42.747
  • as you're watching this program.
  • 00:04:42.747 --> 00:04:44.649
  • and basically what she said is,
  • 00:04:47.852 --> 00:04:49.754
  • "I have returned to church."
  • 00:04:55.259 --> 00:04:57.261
  • she's taking the moment of now,
  • 00:05:00.565 --> 00:05:02.767
  • when he came into Galilee.
  • 00:05:07.038 --> 00:05:08.239
  • "Today is the day of salvation.
  • 00:05:10.641 --> 00:05:12.076
  • "The kingdom of God is now."
  • 00:05:12.076 --> 00:05:13.344
  • Make a move.
  • 00:05:13.344 --> 00:05:14.879
  • Go forward in your life.
  • 00:05:18.249 --> 00:05:20.284
  • And basically she also said,
  • 00:05:20.284 --> 00:05:22.220
  • We're talking about time.
  • 00:05:24.756 --> 00:05:26.357
  • and that's an admirable thing,
  • 00:05:35.066 --> 00:05:37.368
  • God is speaking to me.
  • 00:06:06.631 --> 00:06:08.666
  • Now is the acceptable time,
  • 00:06:13.704 --> 00:06:15.206
  • And that's my prayer for you.
  • 00:06:19.877 --> 00:06:21.946
  • God is very merciful.
  • 00:06:21.946 --> 00:06:23.381
  • I really want you to get that.
  • 00:06:25.016 --> 00:06:26.984
  • He's merciful to you.
  • 00:06:26.984 --> 00:06:28.119
  • you're looking for something.
  • 00:06:36.561 --> 00:06:37.695
  • Well, I believe that God's mercy
  • 00:06:37.695 --> 00:06:41.332
  • is about to be extended to you.
  • 00:06:41.332 --> 00:06:43.801
  • in the moment, in the now,
  • 00:07:10.828 --> 00:07:12.763
  • you will receive mercy.
  • 00:07:14.999 --> 00:07:17.268
  • for that whole year of 2016.
  • 00:07:18.970 --> 00:07:21.439
  • there was a wide open door.
  • 00:07:29.714 --> 00:07:30.982
  • astounding verse in the Bible.
  • 00:07:55.139 --> 00:07:57.475
  • Get this, Romans 5:8.
  • 00:07:57.475 --> 00:07:59.710
  • Get that now.
  • 00:08:09.453 --> 00:08:10.988
  • Not when we went to church,
  • 00:08:10.988 --> 00:08:13.491
  • but when we need Him most,
  • 00:08:44.388 --> 00:08:46.824
  • while we were yet sinners.
  • 00:08:48.559 --> 00:08:50.595
  • "God has given up on me."
  • 00:09:04.075 --> 00:09:05.977
  • Or maybe you're just been angry
  • 00:09:05.977 --> 00:09:08.546
  • "God can't possibly forgive me."
  • 00:09:10.681 --> 00:09:12.783
  • That is an astounding verse,
  • 00:09:23.127 --> 00:09:25.663
  • I think about it in my own life
  • 00:09:27.598 --> 00:09:29.100
  • I believed that there was a God
  • 00:09:40.277 --> 00:09:41.445
  • but just never really knew God
  • 00:09:41.445 --> 00:09:43.481
  • and all that type of a thing.
  • 00:09:53.557 --> 00:09:54.792
  • but I was looking for happiness
  • 00:09:57.395 --> 00:09:59.096
  • that you can get to be happy.
  • 00:10:00.698 --> 00:10:03.234
  • It was right at that moment,
  • 00:10:17.548 --> 00:10:18.783
  • I love what Jesus said,
  • 00:10:41.972 --> 00:10:43.708
  • And I want you to receive mercy,
  • 00:11:07.031 --> 00:11:09.266
  • There are no strings attached.
  • 00:11:31.956 --> 00:11:34.558
  • God is love, love is who God is,
  • 00:11:38.095 --> 00:11:42.900
  • and His love for us is eternal.
  • 00:11:42.900 --> 00:11:44.401
  • You didn't have to earn it.
  • 00:11:46.837 --> 00:11:48.839
  • "The Passion of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:12:29.647 --> 00:12:32.082
  • God's forgiveness, God's mercy,
  • 00:12:41.725 --> 00:12:43.594
  • you can experience God's love,
  • 00:12:51.836 --> 00:12:53.637
  • but you gotta make a move.
  • 00:12:53.637 --> 00:12:55.573
  • where you make a move.
  • 00:12:57.575 --> 00:12:59.643
  • he's gonna go out to them.
  • 00:13:15.893 --> 00:13:17.928
  • because in one of the documents,
  • 00:13:20.898 --> 00:13:22.766
  • as we have to forgive,
  • 00:13:34.945 --> 00:13:36.614
  • and what he does is he goes out
  • 00:13:36.614 --> 00:13:37.915
  • to all these different places,
  • 00:13:37.915 --> 00:13:39.149
  • And that's what television does.
  • 00:13:46.323 --> 00:13:48.592
  • to go into your homes,
  • 00:13:51.095 --> 00:13:52.796
  • And so people come to confession
  • 00:13:55.666 --> 00:13:58.035
  • and they come to Christ.
  • 00:14:03.774 --> 00:14:05.142
  • Make a move with God.
  • 00:14:11.649 --> 00:14:13.517
  • because now God is at hand.
  • 00:14:24.795 --> 00:14:27.298
  • It is now your moment.
  • 00:14:27.298 --> 00:14:29.466
  • I've got a job, I'm married,
  • 00:14:33.604 --> 00:14:35.105
  • Why do I need all this?
  • 00:14:39.009 --> 00:14:40.277
  • Why do I need to make a move?
  • 00:14:40.277 --> 00:14:41.445
  • Why is it now my time?
  • 00:14:41.445 --> 00:14:43.747
  • Well I just wanna tell you that
  • 00:14:43.747 --> 00:14:46.617
  • God's mercy is extended to you
  • 00:14:46.617 --> 00:14:49.954
  • like things are going okay.
  • 00:14:55.192 --> 00:14:57.261
  • and merciful to you right now.
  • 00:15:20.317 --> 00:15:21.785
  • and every year, year after year,
  • 00:15:28.959 --> 00:15:31.295
  • "Come here for three years

  • Cut it down?
  • 00:15:54.284 --> 00:15:55.486
  • What was this parable about?
  • 00:16:11.068 --> 00:16:12.503
  • He's looking for a move from us,
  • 00:16:15.773 --> 00:16:17.908
  • but if we don't bear fruit,
  • 00:16:19.676 --> 00:16:20.911
  • And I love what it says.
  • 00:16:22.579 --> 00:16:23.981
  • put some manure around it.
  • 00:16:26.550 --> 00:16:28.886
  • I used to live near a farm,
  • 00:16:28.886 --> 00:16:31.021
  • it would get really stinky
  • 00:16:34.291 --> 00:16:35.793
  • to try to help things grow,
  • 00:16:39.329 --> 00:16:41.665
  • Actually, you know what that is?
  • 00:16:50.741 --> 00:16:51.675
  • That's God's gardening.
  • 00:16:51.675 --> 00:16:53.844
  • and to seize the moment
  • 00:16:58.515 --> 00:16:59.716
  • I think about my own life.
  • 00:17:01.652 --> 00:17:02.886
  • such a devastating thing for me.
  • 00:17:13.363 --> 00:17:15.466
  • I was grieving the relationship,
  • 00:17:18.669 --> 00:17:20.537
  • and in the midst of that pain,
  • 00:17:24.007 --> 00:17:25.909
  • I came back to God
  • 00:17:33.984 --> 00:17:35.185
  • and God was so merciful to me.
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:38.789
  • while I was yet a sinner
  • 00:17:46.597 --> 00:17:48.699
  • in the midst of our sinfulness
  • 00:17:55.105 --> 00:17:57.207
  • Whoa.
  • 00:18:10.787 --> 00:18:11.989
  • and that's my prayer for you.
  • 00:18:17.995 --> 00:18:19.530
  • and I'm so happy and I'm so glad
  • 00:18:28.071 --> 00:18:30.674
  • and tuning into my program,
  • 00:18:32.142 --> 00:18:33.810
  • and I saw a motivational poster

  • a phone call from the secretary.
  • 00:19:21.625 --> 00:19:23.126
  • And this is what she said.
  • 00:19:46.650 --> 00:19:48.652
  • She said she was struggling with
  • 00:19:48.652 --> 00:19:50.887
  • not being able to fall asleep.
  • 00:19:50.887 --> 00:19:53.557

  • 00:20:13.143 --> 00:20:14.344
  • she came upon my program,

  • watching my program ever since,
  • 00:20:36.500 --> 00:20:38.869

  • She seized the moment.
  • 00:20:59.056 --> 00:21:01.091
  • and it's the same way.
  • 00:21:12.703 --> 00:21:14.071

  • 00:22:30.847 --> 00:22:32.883
  • While you're yet a sinner,
  • 00:22:38.722 --> 00:22:39.956
  • And why was that?
