  • NOTES ON.
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:17.060
  • NUMBER ONE, THIS IS CALLED THE
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:20.060
  • LAW OF FIVE PERCENT.
  • 00:01:20.060 --> 00:01:21.160
  • ONLY ONE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:01:21.160 --> 00:01:23.230
  • REACH THE TOP.
  • 00:01:23.230 --> 00:01:25.060
  • MEANING THEY MAKE IT IN WHAT
  • 00:01:25.060 --> 00:01:27.070
  • THEY DESIRE TO DO.
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:28.090
  • THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT THEY
  • 00:01:28.090 --> 00:01:29.210
  • DESIRE TO DO AND THEY ARE
  • 00:01:29.210 --> 00:01:31.020
  • BLESSED THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFE
  • 00:01:31.020 --> 00:01:32.050
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVE FOUND THEIR
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:33.140
  • PURPOSE.
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:33.280
  • ONE PERCENT OUT OF A HUNDRED
  • 00:01:33.280 --> 00:01:35.120
  • PERCENT REACH THE TOP.
  • 00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:36.280
  • HERE'S THE SECOND STATISTIC.
  • 00:01:36.280 --> 00:01:38.090
  • FOUR PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE REACH
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:40.020
  • A LEADERSHIP LEVEL.
  • 00:01:40.020 --> 00:01:41.280
  • THAT MEANS THEY'RE THE HEAD OF A
  • 00:01:41.280 --> 00:01:43.190
  • COMPANY.
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:44.010
  • THEY'RE THE HEAD OF OF SMALL
  • 00:01:44.010 --> 00:01:45.060
  • BUSINESS.
  • 00:01:45.060 --> 00:01:45.200
  • THEY'RE THE PASTOR OF A CHURCH.
  • 00:01:45.200 --> 00:01:47.040
  • THEY'RE THE LEADER OF AN
  • 00:01:47.040 --> 00:01:48.080
  • ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:49.000
  • AND SO NINETY FIVE PERCENT REACH
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:52.080
  • A PLATEAU AND STAY CONTENT WHERE
  • 00:01:52.080 --> 00:01:54.120
  • THEY'RE AT.
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.140
  • THAT MEANS, LADIES AND
  • 00:01:55.140 --> 00:01:56.170
  • GENTLEMEN, THAT ONLY FIVE
  • 00:01:56.170 --> 00:01:57.160
  • PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE THAT EVER
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:01:59.030
  • ATTEMPT TO DO SOMETHING FEEL
  • 00:01:59.030 --> 00:02:00.280
  • SUCCESSFUL OR ARE TOTALLY ONE
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:03.070
  • HUNDRED PERCENT SUCCESSFUL IN
  • 00:02:03.070 --> 00:02:04.290
  • THE LEVEL OF WHERE THEY'RE AT.
  • 00:02:04.290 --> 00:02:07.060
  • NOW I WROTE THIS DOWN.
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:08.110
  • ONE PERCENT SEE THE OBSTACLES
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:10.150
  • AND IMMEDIATELY OVERCOME THEM.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:12.060
  • THAT'S WHY THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:13.070
  • THE FOUR PERCENT SEE THE
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:14.270
  • OBSTACLES BUT EVENTUALLY
  • 00:02:14.270 --> 00:02:16.110
  • OVERCOME THEM.
  • 00:02:16.110 --> 00:02:17.150
  • THAT'S THE FOUR PERCENT.
  • 00:02:17.150 --> 00:02:18.240
  • BUT THE NINETY FIVE PERCENT SEE
  • 00:02:18.240 --> 00:02:20.110
  • THE OBSTACLES AND MAY OR MAY NOT
  • 00:02:20.110 --> 00:02:23.020
  • OVERCOME THEM.
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:24.000
  • AND THAT'S WHY A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:02:24.000 --> 00:02:25.090
  • MOVE FROM ONE POSITION TO THE
  • 00:02:25.090 --> 00:02:26.170
  • NEXT, ONE JOB TO THE NEXT.
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:27.290
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT HAPPY WHERE
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:29.250
  • THEY ARE AND THEY CAN NEVER SEEM
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:31.060
  • TO FIND THEIR PLACE.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:32.150
  • SO I WANT TO ASK YOU A QUESTION.
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:33.260
  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
  • 00:02:33.260 --> 00:02:36.000
  • PEOPLE WHO CAN STEP OUT IN LIFE
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:38.120
  • AND DO THEIR VISION AND DO THEIR
  • 00:02:38.120 --> 00:02:40.080
  • DREAM AND DO THEIR ASSIGNMENT
  • 00:02:40.080 --> 00:02:41.220
  • AND THE PEOPLE THAT JUST DON'T
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:43.120
  • SEEM TO BE ABLE TO EVER GET
  • 00:02:43.120 --> 00:02:44.290
  • THEIR ACT TOGETHER?
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:46.030
  • YOU KNOW, YEARS AGO WHEN GOD
  • 00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:47.140
  • CALLED ME INTO THE MINISTRY, HE
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:48.200
  • GAVE ME A SEVEN POINT OUTREACH
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:49.260
  • PLAN AND THAT'S WHEN I WAS 18
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:51.200
  • YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:02:51.200 --> 00:02:52.240
  • AND IN THOSE SEVEN OUTREACHES I
  • 00:02:52.240 --> 00:02:54.130
  • LITERALLY PURSUED EVERY OUTREACH
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:56.290
  • THAT THE LORD EVER GAVE ME AND
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:02:58.120
  • WE HAVE WATCHED THOSE OUTREACHES
  • 00:02:58.120 --> 00:02:59.260
  • REACH THE ENTIRE WORLD TODAY
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:01.100
  • WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:02.240
  • AND OF COURSE THROUGH THE
  • 00:03:02.240 --> 00:03:04.020
  • MANNA-FEST TELECAST.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.010
  • NOT ONLY THAT, BUT THROUGHOUT MY
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:06.130
  • MINISTRY WHEN THE LORD TOLD ME
  • 00:03:06.130 --> 00:03:08.020
  • MANNA-FEST.
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:09.010

  • TELEVISION.
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:13.180
  • AND THE LORD BEGAN TO GIVE ME
  • 00:03:13.180 --> 00:03:14.250
  • THE PLAN OF HOW TO DO IT.
  • 00:03:14.250 --> 00:03:16.000
  • I CAN SAY THIS BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:17.150
  • AND TO THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:18.220
  • THAT EVERYTHING THAT IS EVER PUT
  • 00:03:18.220 --> 00:03:20.090
  • IN OUR SPIRIT TO BUILD, WHETHER
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:21.260

  • OF THE WORD.
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:28.050
  • WHATEVER IT IS THE LORD HAS
  • 00:03:28.050 --> 00:03:29.120
  • HELPED ME TO BE ABLE TO DO IT
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:30.260
  • BECAUSE WHEN I SET THE GOAL AND
  • 00:03:30.260 --> 00:03:32.270
  • I KNEW IT WAS HIS WILL I PURSUED
  • 00:03:32.270 --> 00:03:34.100
  • IT AFTER IT.
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:34.290

  • CHAPTER 17, VERSES 1 THROUGH 4.
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:57.200
  • AFTER SIX DAYS JESUS TOOK PETER,
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:59.130
  • JAMES, AND JOHN HIS BROTHER, LED
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:01.110
  • THEM UP ON A HIGH MOUNTAIN BY
  • 00:04:01.110 --> 00:04:02.240
  • THEMSELVES; AND HE WAS
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:04.120
  • TRANSFIGURED BEFORE THEM.
  • 00:04:04.120 --> 00:04:05.190
  • HIS FACE SHONE LIKE THE SUN, AND
  • 00:04:05.190 --> 00:04:06.280
  • HIS CLOTHES BECAME AS WHITE AS
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:08.100
  • THE LIGHT.
  • 00:04:08.100 --> 00:04:08.260
  • AND BEHOLD, MOSES AND ELIJAH
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:10.100
  • APPEARED UNTO THEM.
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:12.210
  • NOW IT HAS BEEN POINTED OUT FOR
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:14.070
  • QUITE SOME TIME THAT THERE WERE
  • 00:04:14.070 --> 00:04:15.150
  • THREE INNER CIRCLE DISCIPLES AND
  • 00:04:15.150 --> 00:04:17.150
  • THEY WERE PETER, JAMES AND JOHN.
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:19.150
  • THE OTHER NINE DISCIPLES WERE
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:21.060
  • NOT PERMITTED TO GO TO CERTAIN
  • 00:04:21.060 --> 00:04:22.140
  • PLACES WITH JESUS.
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:23.280
  • FOR EXAMPLE, ONLY THREE WERE
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.250
  • PERMITTED TO GO WITH CHRIST ON
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:27.010
  • THE MOUNT OF TRANSFIGURATION.
  • 00:04:27.010 --> 00:04:28.150
  • PETER, JAMES AND JOHN.
  • 00:04:28.150 --> 00:04:30.020
  • ONLY THREE WERE ALLOWED TO GO
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:31.170
  • WITH CHRIST IN THE GARDEN OF
  • 00:04:31.170 --> 00:04:32.200
  • GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:33.120
  • PETER, JAMES AND JOHN.
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:35.060
  • NOW A QUESTION ARISES.
  • 00:04:35.060 --> 00:04:36.120
  • WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
  • 00:04:36.120 --> 00:04:38.050
  • PETER, JAMES AND JOHN AND THE
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:39.190
  • OTHER NINE DISCIPLES?
  • 00:04:39.190 --> 00:04:41.180
  • FOR EXAMPLE PETER, IF YOU LOOK
  • 00:04:41.180 --> 00:04:44.010
  • AT WHAT PETER DID, PETER BECAME
  • 00:04:44.010 --> 00:04:45.040
  • THE LEADER OF THE JEWISH BRANCH
  • 00:04:45.040 --> 00:04:46.230
  • OF THE CHURCH FROM THE DAY OF
  • 00:04:46.230 --> 00:04:48.120
  • PENTECOST FORWARD.
  • 00:04:48.120 --> 00:04:49.180
  • IF YOU LOOK AT THE APOSTLE JOHN,
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:51.140
  • HE WROTE THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:52.280
  • THE GREAT APOCALYPTIC VISION OF
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:54.290
  • THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:55.210
  • IF YOU LOOK, FOR EXAMPLE, AT
  • 00:04:55.210 --> 00:04:57.040
  • JAMES.
  • 00:04:57.040 --> 00:04:57.190
  • HE LED THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:04:58.210
  • JERUSALEM.
  • 00:04:58.210 --> 00:04:59.140
  • PETER, JAMES AND JOHN.
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:05:00.210
  • NOW THAT BRINGS US TO THIS
  • 00:05:00.210 --> 00:05:02.290
  • QUESTION.
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:03.220
  • WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER DISCIPLES?
  • 00:05:03.220 --> 00:05:04.180
  • FOR EXAMPLE, ANDREW.
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.290
  • WHAT DID HE DO?
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:06.220
  • BARTHOLOMEW.
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:08.000
  • PHILLIP.
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:08.220
  • NATHANIEL.
  • 00:05:08.220 --> 00:05:09.210
  • YOU HAVE THOMAS.
  • 00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:10.240
  • JUSTUS, CALLED MATTHIAS.
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.160
  • WHAT DID THEY DO?
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:13.170
  • YOU DON'T READ WHERE THEY WROTE
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:15.030
  • A BOOK IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:16.030
  • YOU DON'T READ WHERE THEY WROTE
  • 00:05:16.030 --> 00:05:17.010
  • AN EPISTLE.
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:17.280
  • WE DO KNOW ACCORDING TO FOX'S
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:19.020
  • BOOK OF MARTYRS THAT THEY ALL
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:20.190
  • DIED MARTYRS.
  • 00:05:20.190 --> 00:05:21.140
  • WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:22.050
  • MOMENT.
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:23.000
  • ALL BUT THE APOSTLE JOHN.
  • 00:05:23.000 --> 00:05:24.010
  • BUT WHY IS IT, I MEAN HAVE YOU
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:25.240
  • EVER ASKED YOURSELF IF YOU HAVE
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:27.160
  • A GROUP OF CHILDREN IN A FAMILY,
  • 00:05:27.160 --> 00:05:29.160
  • WHY DOES ONE SUCCEED AND THE
  • 00:05:29.160 --> 00:05:31.050
  • OTHERS STRUGGLE?
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:32.110
  • IF YOU HAVE A GENERATION, OR
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:34.180
  • SHOULD I SAY IT THIS WAY?
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:36.090
  • SEVERAL GENERATIONS IN A FAMILY.
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:38.150
  • WHY IS IT THAT SOME OF THEM TEND
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:40.060
  • TO MAKE IT IN WHAT THEY DO AND
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:41.210
  • OTHERS DO NOT?
  • 00:05:41.210 --> 00:05:42.190
  • NOW SOME WOULD SUGGEST IT'S THE
  • 00:05:42.190 --> 00:05:44.120
  • LEVEL OF HARD WORK VERSUS THOSE
  • 00:05:44.120 --> 00:05:46.120
  • WHO DREAM ABOUT DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:48.120
  • AND THOSE WHO ARE DOING
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:49.210
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:50.120
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THERE ARE
  • 00:05:50.120 --> 00:05:51.120
  • HEARERS OF THE WORD AND THERE
  • 00:05:51.120 --> 00:05:52.220
  • ARE DOERS OF THE WORD.
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:53.230
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:05:53.230 --> 00:05:54.280
  • IMMEDIATELY, WHEN THEY HAVE A
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:56.180
  • VISION OR A DREAM OR A DESIRE,
  • 00:05:56.180 --> 00:05:57.250
  • THEY SET OUT TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:59.100
  • AND THERE'S OTHERS THAT FIVE
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:00.290
  • YEARS LATER ARE STILL TALKING
  • 00:06:00.290 --> 00:06:02.110
  • ABOUT THAT DREAM OR THAT DESIRE.
  • 00:06:02.110 --> 00:06:04.040
  • NOW THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:05.180
  • SAID HOWEVER ABOUT LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:08.090
  • IS LEADERSHIP INBRED?
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:10.040
  • ARE YOU BORN WITH A CERTAIN DNA
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:11.210
  • TO BE A LEADER OR CAN YOU MAKE
  • 00:06:11.210 --> 00:06:13.070
  • YOURSELF TO BE A LEADER?
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:14.250
  • ARE YOU BORN JUST TO BE A
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:16.050
  • FOLLOWER?
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:16.250
  • ARE YOU BORN FOR OTHERS TO
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.230
  • FOLLOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING?
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:19.290
  • NOW LET ME TALK TO YOU FOR A
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.130
  • MOMENT ABOUT TWO STORIES.
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:22.260
  • MANY MANY YEARS AGO IN THE
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:24.290
  • KOREAN WAR; SOME OF YOU HAVE
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:26.140
  • HEARD ABOUT THE KOREAN WAR, THEY
  • 00:06:26.140 --> 00:06:27.160
  • NOTICED SOMETHING.
  • 00:06:27.160 --> 00:06:28.240
  • AS THE KOREANS BEGAN TO TAKE
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:30.240
  • PRISONERS OF WAR FROM THE UNITED
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:32.290
  • STATES, THEY WATCHED THOSE
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:34.270
  • PRISONERS OF WAR FOR SEVERAL
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:36.090
  • DAYS AND THEN THEY SEPARATED
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:38.140
  • THEM.
  • 00:06:38.140 --> 00:06:39.070
  • AND HERE'S WHAT THEY NOTICED.
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:40.070
  • THAT THERE WERE CERTAIN MEN THAT
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:41.160
  • THE OTHER PRISONERS WOULD
  • 00:06:41.160 --> 00:06:42.290
  • GRAVITATE TOWARDS.
  • 00:06:42.290 --> 00:06:44.090
  • THEY WERE ALWAYS SEEN TALKING TO
  • 00:06:44.090 --> 00:06:46.050
  • THESE PARTICULAR MEN AND THEY
  • 00:06:46.050 --> 00:06:47.160
  • KNEW THESE MEN WERE LEADERS AND
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:49.080
  • THESE MEN WOULD PLAN AN ESCAPE.
  • 00:06:49.080 --> 00:06:51.050
  • SO THEY TOOK THE LEADERS AND
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:52.230
  • SEPARATED THEM FROM THE OTHER
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:54.190
  • SOLDIERS.
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:06:55.190
  • BECAUSE THE OTHER SOLDIERS AT
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.230
  • THAT POINT WOULD HAVE NO
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:57.250
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:06:58.200
  • NO ONE TO TELL THEM, HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:00.110
  • WE'RE GOING TO DO AND HERE'S HOW
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:01.100
  • WE'RE GOING TO DO IT.
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:02.100
  • AND THEY SEPARATED THE LEADERS
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:03.190
  • JUST AMONG THEMSELVES AND PUT A
  • 00:07:03.190 --> 00:07:05.050
  • SPECIAL GROUP OF SOLDIERS OVER
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:07.060
  • THEM.
  • 00:07:07.060 --> 00:07:07.270
  • AND THEREFORE THEY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:07:07.270 --> 00:07:09.180
  • THE POWER OF SOMEONE IN A GROUP
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:12.030
  • BECOMING A LEADER AND CAUSING
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:14.130
  • THE OTHERS TO FOLLOW THEM.
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:16.040
  • THE SAME THING HAPPENED
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.130
  • ACCORDING TO HISTORY IN WHAT WAS
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:18.260
  • CALLED THE GERMAN WAR.
  • 00:07:18.260 --> 00:07:20.100
  • THE GERMANS DID THE SAME THING.
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:21.230
  • WHEN THE GERMANS TOOK AMERICAN
  • 00:07:21.230 --> 00:07:22.250
  • PRISONERS OF WAR THEY BEGAN TO
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:24.030
  • SEPARATE THEM INTO TWO GROUPS.
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:25.150
  • AGAIN, THEY WATCHED THESE
  • 00:07:25.150 --> 00:07:27.170
  • SOLDIERS TOGETHER FOR A PERIOD
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:29.010
  • OF TIME AND THEY BEGAN TO NOTICE
  • 00:07:29.010 --> 00:07:30.060
  • THAT THERE WERE CERTAIN SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:30.060 --> 00:07:31.100
  • THAT EVERYONE WAS GRAVITATING
  • 00:07:31.100 --> 00:07:32.190
  • TO.
  • 00:07:32.190 --> 00:07:33.130
  • THEY WOULD PULL THOSE SOLDIERS
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:34.240
  • OUT.
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:35.100
  • PUT THEM INTO A CERTAIN CAMP BY
  • 00:07:35.100 --> 00:07:36.240
  • THEMSELVES AND LET THE OTHER
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.170
  • SOLDIERS, WHAT WE WOULD CALL
  • 00:07:38.170 --> 00:07:39.210
  • JUST THE COMMON SOLDIERS, ALONE.
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:40.230
  • SO THERE WERE TWO GROUPS.
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:41.230
  • LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:43.150
  • AND THAT'S THE WAY THAT IT HAS
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:44.280
  • ALWAYS BEEN.
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:45.230
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:46.290
  • LEADERS AND THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:07:46.290 --> 00:07:47.290
  • THAT ARE FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:48.220
  • NOW IF I WERE TO SAY TO SECULAR
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:50.140
  • PEOPLE, WHAT IS THERE THAT
  • 00:07:50.140 --> 00:07:52.130
  • CAUSES YOU TO FOLLOW A MINISTRY?
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:54.040
  • SOME WOULD SAY, WELL IT'S THE
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:55.260
  • PERSONALITY OF THE MINISTER.
  • 00:07:55.260 --> 00:07:57.140
  • SOME WOULD SAY IT'S THE GIFTING
  • 00:07:57.140 --> 00:07:58.260
  • OF THE MINISTER.
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:07:59.240
  • SOME WHO ARE CHARISMATIC AND
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:01.080
  • PENTECOSTAL WOULD SAY, IT'S THE
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:02.140
  • ANOINTING OR THE POWER OF GOD
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:04.120
  • THAT'S IN THE MINISTRY.
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:06.080
  • SOME WOULD SUGGEST IT'S THE
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:07.130
  • TEACHING OF THE WORD.
  • 00:08:07.130 --> 00:08:08.290
  • I'M FED BY THE TEACHING OF THE
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:10.020
  • WORD THROUGH THAT PARTICULAR
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:11.210
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:08:11.210 --> 00:08:12.110
  • HOWEVER, IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:13.270
  • DEEPER THAN THIS, AND LET ME
  • 00:08:13.270 --> 00:08:15.020
  • EXPLAIN IT TO YOU FROM DAVID'S A
  • 00:08:15.020 --> 00:08:16.160
  • MIGHTY MEN.
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:17.090
  • NOW THE BIBLE TELLS YOU, AND
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:18.190
  • WE'RE GOING TO TAKE THESE VERSES
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:19.170
  • FROM 1ST SAMUEL 13, 2ND SAMUEL
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:22.060
  • 23.
  • 00:08:22.060 --> 00:08:23.000
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT WHEN
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:24.150
  • DAVID WAS BEING CHASED IN THE
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:27.200
  • WILDERNESS BY HIS FATHER IN LAW,
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:29.160
  • KING SAUL, WHO TRIED TO KILL HIM
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:30.290
  • BY THE WAY.
  • 00:08:30.290 --> 00:08:31.250
  • SOME HAVE SUGGESTED THAT IF YOU
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:33.010
  • GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE NARRATIVE
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:34.170
  • THERE'S ABOUT 21 TIMES WHERE
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:36.040
  • SAUL WAS EITHER CHASING DAVID OR
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:38.200
  • AFTER HIM OR TRYING TO KILL HIM
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:40.040
  • IN SOME FORM.
  • 00:08:40.040 --> 00:08:40.290
  • YOU'LL DISCOVER THE BIBLE
  • 00:08:40.290 --> 00:08:42.020
  • TEACHES THAT DAVID HAD 600
  • 00:08:42.020 --> 00:08:43.100
  • MIGHTY MEN.
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:44.240
  • NOW THESE WERE MEN WHO CHOSE TO
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:46.280
  • FOLLOW HIM.
  • 00:08:46.280 --> 00:08:47.190
  • THAT SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM
  • 00:08:47.190 --> 00:08:48.260
  • SAUL.
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:49.150
  • BUT CHOSE INSTEAD TO FOLLOW
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:50.280
  • DAVID BECAUSE THEY KNEW HE WAS
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:53.080
  • ANOINTED TO BE THE NEXT KING OF
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:55.090
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:55.260
  • NOW THE BIBLE TELLS YOU THAT OUT
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:57.190
  • OF THE 600, AND THIS IS FOUND IN
  • 00:08:57.190 --> 00:08:59.080
  • 2ND SAMUEL 23, THERE WERE A
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:01.160
  • TOTAL OF 30 MEN THAT WERE
  • 00:09:01.160 --> 00:09:03.260
  • MIGHTIER OUT OF THE 600.
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:05.150
  • THESE WERE MEN THAT STOOD OUT.
  • 00:09:05.150 --> 00:09:07.190
  • THESE WERE MEN THAT COULD FIGHT
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:08.270
  • BATTLES.
  • 00:09:08.270 --> 00:09:09.160
  • THESE WERE MEN THAT DAVID WOULD
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:10.200
  • SEND INTO A BATTLE WITH OTHER
  • 00:09:10.200 --> 00:09:11.260
  • MEN AS THE SOLDIERS.
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:13.110
  • BUT THEN WE READ IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:13.110 --> 00:09:14.270
  • THAT OUT OF THE 30 THERE WERE
  • 00:09:14.270 --> 00:09:16.230
  • THREE MIGHTIER THAN ALL AMONG
  • 00:09:17.020 --> 00:09:20.020
  • THE 30.
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:20.220
  • SO OUT OF DAVID'S 600 MEN THERE
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:22.210
  • WERE ONLY THREE THAT WERE
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:25.150
  • MIGHTIER THAN ALL OF THEM.
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:27.050
  • THAT STOOD OUT ABOVE ALL.
  • 00:09:27.050 --> 00:09:28.150
  • NOW THAT'S A VERY LOW PERCENT.
  • 00:09:28.150 --> 00:09:29.240
  • NOW REMEMBER, WE TALKED EARLIER
  • 00:09:29.240 --> 00:09:30.260
  • ABOUT THE LAW OF FIVE PERCENT
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:33.100
  • WHICH SAYS THAT ONLY FIVE
  • 00:09:33.100 --> 00:09:34.150
  • PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE IN LIFE
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:36.030
  • EVER ARE HAPPY BY THE END OF
  • 00:09:36.030 --> 00:09:38.140
  • THEIR LIFE KNOWING THAT THEY
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:39.230
  • HAVE SUCCEEDED IN WHAT THEY WERE
  • 00:09:39.230 --> 00:09:41.130
  • GOING TO DO AND FELT SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:43.090
  • WITH EVERYTHING THEY SET THEIR
  • 00:09:43.090 --> 00:09:45.000
  • HANDS TO.
  • 00:09:45.000 --> 00:09:45.190
  • NOW WHO WERE THESE THREE MIGHTY
  • 00:09:45.190 --> 00:09:47.230
  • MEN THAT WERE GREATER THAN ALL
  • 00:09:47.230 --> 00:09:49.170
  • OF THE OTHERS COMBINED?
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:51.060
  • 600 MEN.
  • 00:09:51.060 --> 00:09:52.150
  • 30 THAT WERE GREATER OUT OF THE
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:54.200
  • 600.
  • 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:55.120
  • 3 THAT WERE GREATER OUT OF THE
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:57.040
  • 30.
  • 00:09:57.040 --> 00:09:57.230
  • MEANING THERE WERE THREE THAT
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:09:59.010
  • STOOD OUT.
  • 00:09:59.010 --> 00:09:59.270
  • NOW THE BIBLE GIVES YOU THEIR
  • 00:09:59.270 --> 00:10:00.270
  • NAMES.
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:01.160
  • NOW THIS IS 2ND SAMUEL.
  • 00:10:01.160 --> 00:10:02.260
  • AGAIN, CHAPTER 23, VERSES 8
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:04.070
  • THROUGH 13.
  • 00:10:04.070 --> 00:10:05.090
  • THERE WAS A MAN CALLED ADINO
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:06.220
  • THAT THE BIBLE SAID SLEW 800 MEN
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:10.090
  • AT ONE TIME WITH A SPEAR.
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:11.270
  • NOW THAT WOULD BE A REMARKABLE
  • 00:10:11.270 --> 00:10:13.140
  • FEAT BY ANY SINGLE SOLDIER.
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:16.020
  • SO YOU CAN SEE, THIS WAS A
  • 00:10:16.020 --> 00:10:17.080
  • WARRIOR.
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:18.030
  • A FIGHTER.
  • 00:10:18.030 --> 00:10:18.220
  • A MAN THAT WAS PASSIONATE AND
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:20.020
  • DETERMINED TO WIN HIS BATTLES.
  • 00:10:20.020 --> 00:10:21.200
  • THE SECOND MAN MENTIONED IS
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:23.060
  • ELEAZAR AND HE SMOTE THE ENEMIES
  • 00:10:23.060 --> 00:10:25.120
  • OF ISRAEL UNTIL HIS HAND CLEAVED
  • 00:10:25.210 --> 00:10:28.210
  • TO HIS SWORD.
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:29.130
  • YOU COULD HARDLY TAKE HIS
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:30.150
  • FINGERS OFF OF HIS SWORD BECAUSE
  • 00:10:30.150 --> 00:10:32.120
  • HE HELD ON TO IT FOR SO LONG.
  • 00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:33.260
  • THIS WAS ONE OF DAVID'S MIGHTIER
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:36.040
  • MEN OUT OF THE MIGHTY MEN.
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:38.070
  • THEN THERE'S A THIRD ONE BY THE
  • 00:10:38.070 --> 00:10:39.190
  • NAME OF SHAMMAH THAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:41.130
  • TELLS US THAT HE HAD, WE WOULD
  • 00:10:41.130 --> 00:10:43.180
  • CALL IT A BEAN PATCH, AND THE
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:45.080
  • PHILISTINES KEPT INVADING HIS
  • 00:10:45.080 --> 00:10:46.140
  • BEAN PATCH AND HE FINALLY SAID,
  • 00:10:46.140 --> 00:10:48.020
  • YOU HAVE INVADED MY BEAN PATCH
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:49.010
  • FOR THE LAST TIME.
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:49.270
  • AND HE TOOK ON THE ENTIRE
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:52.020
  • PHILISTINE ARMY AND DEFEATED
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.280
  • THEM THAT WAS COMING AGAINST HIS
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:55.250
  • PERSONAL PROPERTY.
  • 00:10:55.250 --> 00:10:56.260
  • SO YOU HAVE A MAN CALLED ADINO,
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:59.010
  • ELEAZAR AND YOU HAVE A MAN BY
  • 00:10:59.010 --> 00:11:00.150
  • THE NAME OF SHAMMAH.
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:01.150
  • SO OUT OF 600 MEN 30 PERCENT
  • 00:11:01.150 --> 00:11:03.240
  • STOOD OUT AMONG THE 600.
  • 00:11:03.240 --> 00:11:06.040
  • BUT ONLY 3 STOOD OUT AMONG THE
  • 00:11:06.040 --> 00:11:08.040
  • 30.
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:08.240
  • NOW THE LAW OF FIVE PERCENT IS
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:11.020
  • THIS, AND WE'RE GOING TO GET IN
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:12.100
  • JUST A MOMENT, YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:11:12.100 --> 00:11:13.150
  • STAY WITH ME BECAUSE I'M GOING

  • TO GET TO YOU, WITH YOU IN A

  • MOMENT AND TELL YOU ABOUT THE
  • 00:11:16.180 --> 00:11:17.240
  • SECRET UP HERE THAT IS THE
  • 00:11:17.240 --> 00:11:19.210
  • SECRET OF YOU BEING WHAT GOD
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:21.080
  • WANTS YOU TO BE.
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:22.020
  • BEING BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:23.220
  • OF HIM.
  • 00:11:23.220 --> 00:11:24.140
  • IT'S A REAL IMPORTANT SUBJECT
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:26.020
  • BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO TIE IT
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.080
  • ALL TOGETHER HERE IN JUST A
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:28.060
  • MOMENT.
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:28.260
  • NOW FIVE PERCENT OF BUSINESSES
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:30.190
  • CONTINUE TO GROW AND CONTINUE TO
  • 00:11:30.190 --> 00:11:32.000
  • PROSPER.
  • 00:11:32.000 --> 00:11:32.230
  • FIVE PERCENT OF MINISTERS IN
  • 00:11:32.230 --> 00:11:34.000
  • CHURCHES ARE THE ONES THAT
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:36.000
  • IMPACT THEIR COMMUNITY AND END
  • 00:11:36.000 --> 00:11:37.060
  • UP HAVING, WHAT WE CALL, MEGA
  • 00:11:37.060 --> 00:11:38.090
  • CHURCHES OR LARGE CHURCHES.
  • 00:11:38.090 --> 00:11:39.140
  • FIVE PERCENT OF ATHLETES ADVANCE
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:40.280
  • IN COLLEGE AND GO ON TO PLAY
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:43.000
  • FOR, WHETHER IT'S THE NBA OR THE
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:44.290
  • NFL.
  • 00:11:44.290 --> 00:11:45.210
  • FIVE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE IN
  • 00:11:45.210 --> 00:11:47.250
  • CHURCHES ON AN AVERAGE, NOW
  • 00:11:47.250 --> 00:11:49.280
  • WE'RE TALKING RURAL CHURCHES ALL
  • 00:11:49.280 --> 00:11:51.000
  • THE WAY UP TO THE LARGER ONES,
  • 00:11:51.000 --> 00:11:52.020
  • END UP DOING MOST OF THE WORK,
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:53.180
  • MOST OF THE GIVING AND MOST OF
  • 00:11:53.180 --> 00:11:54.260
  • THE PRAYING.
  • 00:11:54.260 --> 00:11:55.210
  • SO LET ME ASK YOU THIS QUESTION.
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:57.050
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU FOR JUST A
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.090
  • MOMENT.
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:11:59.020
  • ARE YOU DESTINED TO BE AVERAGE?
  • 00:11:59.020 --> 00:12:01.270
  • ARE YOU JUST ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:12:01.270 --> 00:12:02.220
  • PEOPLE, YOU'RE JUST GOING TO BE
  • 00:12:02.220 --> 00:12:03.180
  • AVERAGE IN LIFE?
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:04.080
  • ARE YOU A PERSON THAT JUST
  • 00:12:04.120 --> 00:12:07.120
  • DOESN'T HAVE THE GOOD LUCK
  • 00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:08.130
  • GENES?
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:09.090
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:09.090 --> 00:12:09.230
  • THE GENES OF YOUR FAMILY JUST
  • 00:12:09.230 --> 00:12:11.020
  • DIDN'T PAN OUT RIGHT AND YOU
  • 00:12:11.020 --> 00:12:12.280
  • JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE SOME BAD
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:14.010
  • GENES AND THAT'S WHY YOU MAKE
  • 00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:15.060
  • BAD DECISIONS ALL THE TIME?
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:16.110
  • THAT'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE THINK.
  • 00:12:16.110 --> 00:12:17.140
  • ARE YOU BORN WITH MORE
  • 00:12:17.140 --> 00:12:19.290
  • MOTIVATION OR LESS MOTIVATION?
  • 00:12:19.290 --> 00:12:21.230
  • IS THAT THE REASON WHY YOU'RE
  • 00:12:21.230 --> 00:12:22.250
  • NOT BEING ABLE TO DO WHAT YOU
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:23.220
  • WANT TO DO?
  • 00:12:23.220 --> 00:12:24.120
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE JUST NOT
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:25.130
  • MOTIVATED?
  • 00:12:25.130 --> 00:12:26.030
  • ALRIGHT.
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:26.210
  • IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU HAVE BAD
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:28.120
  • GENES, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:12:28.120 --> 00:12:29.280
  • YOU'RE JUST BORN WITHOUT
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:31.010
  • MOTIVATION, IF YOU'RE BELIEVING
  • 00:12:31.010 --> 00:12:32.040
  • THAT YOU'RE DESTINED TO BE
  • 00:12:32.040 --> 00:12:33.090
  • AVERAGE I HAVE SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:12:33.090 --> 00:12:34.280
  • GOING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:34.280 --> 00:12:36.030
  • NOW THINK WITH ME FOR JUST A
  • 00:12:36.030 --> 00:12:37.120
  • MOMENT.
  • 00:12:37.120 --> 00:12:38.000
  • I ASKED YOU A QUESTION A MOMENT
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:39.130
  • AGO.
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:39.270
  • WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ANDREW?
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:40.230
  • WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO
  • 00:12:40.230 --> 00:12:41.200
  • BARTHOLOMEW?
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:42.210
  • WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THOMAS?
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.100
  • WHAT EVER HAPPENED...
  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:45.070
  • I MEAN I COULD JUST GO AHEAD AND
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:45.290
  • NAME THEM HERE.
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:46.220
  • SIMON THE CANAANITE.
  • 00:12:46.220 --> 00:12:47.220
  • YOU HAVE PHILLIP.
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:48.290
  • YOU HAD JUSTUS.
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:49.200
  • THESE MEN ARE DISCIPLES OF
  • 00:12:49.200 --> 00:12:52.050
  • JESUS.
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:52.210
  • THEY ARE PART OF THE ORIGINAL
  • 00:12:52.210 --> 00:12:53.220
  • 12.
  • 00:12:53.220 --> 00:12:54.050
  • WHY DO WE KEEP HEARING ABOUT
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:55.010
  • PETER, JAMES AND JOHN BUT WE
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:56.250
  • NEVER HEAR ABOUT THESE OTHER
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:57.250
  • MEN?
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.160
  • PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY NEVER
  • 00:12:58.160 --> 00:13:00.100
  • WROTE A BOOK IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:13:00.100 --> 00:13:01.240
  • PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT
  • 00:13:01.240 --> 00:13:03.010
  • IN THE INNER CIRCLE OF JESUS.
  • 00:13:03.010 --> 00:13:04.100
  • HOWEVER, ALL OF THEM ENDED UP
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:06.090
  • DYING MARTYRS.
  • 00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:07.110
  • EVERYONE OF THEM.
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:08.080
  • THE ONLY PERSON WHO DID NOT DIE
  • 00:13:08.080 --> 00:13:09.070
  • A MARTYR, THAT DIED A NATURAL
  • 00:13:09.070 --> 00:13:10.210
  • CAUSE OF A DISCIPLE OF JESUS WAS
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:12.200
  • JOHN THE APOSTLE WHO WROTE SAINT
  • 00:13:12.200 --> 00:13:14.020
  • JOHNS GOSPEL, 1ST, 2ND, AND 3RD
  • 00:13:14.020 --> 00:13:16.130
  • JOHN AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:17.180
  • HE DIED ABOUT, ABOUT AGE 100
  • 00:13:17.180 --> 00:13:19.260
  • AFTER HE CAME OFF THE ISLE OF
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:21.240
  • PATMOS WITH THE BOOK OF
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:23.060
  • REVELATION.
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:23.230
  • HE DIED SOMEWHERE AROUND 100
  • 00:13:23.230 --> 00:13:24.160
  • YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:13:24.160 --> 00:13:25.120
  • WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE?
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:27.050
  • WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE?
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:28.050
  • OKAY.
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:28.190
  • WHY WERE ONE MOMENT THESE
  • 00:13:28.190 --> 00:13:30.060
  • DISCIPLES HIDING WHEN JESUS WAS
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:32.010
  • RESURRECTED?
  • 00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:32.290
  • AFRAID THAT SOMEONE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:13:32.290 --> 00:13:33.290
  • KILL THEM OR TAKE THEIR LIFE?
  • 00:13:33.290 --> 00:13:35.260
  • AND WHEN JESUS IS RAISED FROM
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.120
  • THE DEAD THEY ARE IN A HOUSE.
  • 00:13:37.120 --> 00:13:38.160
  • ALL THE DOORS AND WINDOWS ARE
  • 00:13:38.160 --> 00:13:39.210
  • SHUT.
  • 00:13:39.210 --> 00:13:40.100
  • WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE THAT
  • 00:13:40.100 --> 00:13:41.200
  • LATER THEY WOULD DIE MARTYRS?
  • 00:13:41.200 --> 00:13:43.090
  • AND THE ANSWER IS SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:13:43.090 --> 00:13:45.000
  • HAPPENED ON THIS HILL.
  • 00:13:45.000 --> 00:13:46.030
  • NOW THERE IS A BELIEF THERE IS
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:49.030
  • ON THIS HILL AN AREA OF A ROOM
  • 00:13:49.030 --> 00:13:51.020
  • CALLED AN UPPER ROOM.
  • 00:13:51.020 --> 00:13:52.220
  • NOW WE KNOW THAT THE UPPER ROOM
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:54.220
  • IS WHERE THE DISCIPLES WERE
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:56.010
  • MEETING IN ACTS CHAPTER 1 RIGHT
  • 00:13:56.010 --> 00:13:57.210
  • BEFORE THE DAY OF PENTECOST
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:13:59.220
  • ARRIVED.
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:01.120
  • THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:03.130
  • BELIEVE THAT THE DAY OF
  • 00:14:03.130 --> 00:14:04.290
  • PENTECOST, WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:06.130
  • CAME, HAPPENED AT A ROOM IN THE
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:08.130
  • TEMPLE WHERE ALL OF THE MEN HAD
  • 00:14:08.130 --> 00:14:10.090
  • BEEN GATHERED TOGETHER.
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:11.070
  • HOWEVER, IN THE BUSINESS MEETING
  • 00:14:11.070 --> 00:14:12.160
  • IN ACTS CHAPTER 1 THERE WAS
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:14.160
  • MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS AND
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:15.220
  • OTHER WOMEN THAT WERE PRESENT
  • 00:14:15.220 --> 00:14:17.030
  • ALONG WITH THE MEN.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:18.100
  • SO WE ASSUME THAT THE 120 WERE
  • 00:14:18.100 --> 00:14:20.260
  • ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:23.080
  • ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST.
  • 00:14:23.080 --> 00:14:24.080
  • SO LET ME READ TO YOU THE VERSE.
  • 00:14:24.080 --> 00:14:25.200
  • WHEN THE DAY OF PENTECOST WAS
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:27.030
  • FULLY COME, THEY WERE ALL
  • 00:14:27.030 --> 00:14:28.110
  • IN ONE PLACE WITH ONE ACCORD.
  • 00:14:28.110 --> 00:14:29.180
  • AND SUDDENLY THERE CAME A SOUND
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:30.260
  • FROM HEAVEN LIKE AS OF A
  • 00:14:30.260 --> 00:14:31.280
  • RUSHING MIGHTY WIND, AND IT
  • 00:14:31.280 --> 00:14:34.040
  • FILLED ALL THE HOUSE WHERE THEY
  • 00:14:34.040 --> 00:14:34.290
  • WERE SEATED.
  • 00:14:34.290 --> 00:14:35.250
  • THERE APPEARED UNTO THEM CLOVEN
  • 00:14:35.250 --> 00:14:37.080
  • TONGUES LIKE AS OF FIRE, AND IT
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:38.080
  • SAT UPON EACH OF THEM.
  • 00:14:38.080 --> 00:14:39.070
  • AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH
  • 00:14:39.070 --> 00:14:40.060
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND BEGAN TO
  • 00:14:40.060 --> 00:14:41.130
  • SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, AS THE
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:42.180
  • SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE.
  • 00:14:42.180 --> 00:14:43.220
  • NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SIMON
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:45.040
  • PETER DENIED THE LORD THREE
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:47.060
  • TIMES.
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:48.010
  • SIMON PETER WAS AFRAID FOR HIS
  • 00:14:48.010 --> 00:14:49.290
  • OWN LIFE.
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:50.260
  • AND HOWEVER, HERE'S WHAT'S
  • 00:14:50.260 --> 00:14:52.180
  • INTERESTING.
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:53.120
  • SIMON PETER EVENTUALLY WAS
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:55.090
  • BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT ON
  • 00:14:55.090 --> 00:14:57.010
  • THE DAY OF PENTECOST AND WAS THE
  • 00:14:57.010 --> 00:14:58.170
  • PREACHER THAT STOOD UP IN ACTS
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:00.210
  • CHAPTER 2 TO PREACH THE GOSPEL
  • 00:15:00.210 --> 00:15:02.230
  • MESSAGE OF THE RESURRECTION OF
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:04.090
  • JESUS AND IT WAS PETER WHO SAW
  • 00:15:04.090 --> 00:15:06.170
  • 3000 CONVERTED AND BAPTIZED THEM
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:09.140
  • IN WATER, PROBABLY AT A LARGE
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:12.040
  • MIKVAH OR MAYBE AT THE POOL OF
  • 00:15:12.040 --> 00:15:13.280
  • SILOAM WHICH IS DOWN HERE IN THE
  • 00:15:13.280 --> 00:15:15.090
  • VALLEY.
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:16.050
  • BAPTIZED 3000 CONVERTS ON THE
  • 00:15:16.050 --> 00:15:18.170
  • DAY OF PENTECOST.
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:19.270
  • THE REASON I'M SHARING THIS WITH
  • 00:15:19.270 --> 00:15:21.230
  • YOU IS I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:15:21.230 --> 00:15:24.020
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THAT THE
  • 00:15:24.020 --> 00:15:25.050
  • THING THAT CHANGED THEM WAS WHAT
  • 00:15:25.050 --> 00:15:27.130
  • HAPPENED ON THIS MOUNTAIN
  • 00:15:27.130 --> 00:15:29.020
  • CENTURIES AGO.
  • 00:15:29.020 --> 00:15:30.120
  • IT WAS THE INFILLING OF THE HOLY
  • 00:15:30.120 --> 00:15:32.050
  • SPIRIT.
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:32.290
  • NOW IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE THE
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:34.030
  • INFILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:15:34.030 --> 00:15:35.080
  • TOUCHED THESE DISCIPLES THEN YOU
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:37.050
  • HAVEN'T READ HISTORY.
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:38.170
  • BECAUSE ACCORDING TO FOX'S BOOK
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:40.110
  • OF MARTYRS PHILLIP WENT TO UPPER
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:41.280
  • ASIA AND ENDED UP BEING SCOURGED
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:44.020
  • AND CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:44.280
  • MATTHIAS WAS STONED IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:15:44.280 --> 00:15:47.180
  • AND LATER BEHEADED.
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:48.180
  • ANDREW WENT TO ODESSA, PREACHED
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:50.230
  • THE GOSPEL AND WAS LATER
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:51.290
  • CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:52.270
  • BARTHOLOMEW, WHO TRANSLATED
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.080
  • MATTHEW'S GOSPEL IN INDIA, WAS
  • 00:15:54.080 --> 00:15:56.010
  • BEATEN IN INDIA AND CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:15:57.170
  • THOMAS, WHO ALSO WENT TO INDIA,
  • 00:15:57.170 --> 00:16:00.040
  • PERFORMED MIRACLES BUT WAS
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:01.190
  • THRUST THROUGH WITH A SPEAR IN
  • 00:16:01.190 --> 00:16:03.020
  • INDIA.
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:03.260
  • THE CHRISTIANS IN INDIA TODAY
  • 00:16:03.260 --> 00:16:05.060
  • CAN SHOW YOU WHERE THAT
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:06.000
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:06.250
  • PETER, THE APOSTLE PETER, ENDED
  • 00:16:06.250 --> 00:16:08.280
  • UP GOING TO ROME AND ACCORDING
  • 00:16:08.280 --> 00:16:10.230
  • TO EARLY STATEMENTS AND EARLY
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:12.270
  • HISTORY HE WAS CRUCIFIED UPSIDE
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:14.190
  • DOWN BECAUSE HE DID NOT FEEL
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:16.000
  • WORTHY TO BE CRUCIFIED THE WAY
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:18.050
  • THAT THE LORD WAS.
  • 00:16:18.050 --> 00:16:19.210
  • NOW MY POINT IS THAT IT WAS THE
  • 00:16:19.210 --> 00:16:22.120
  • BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT OR
  • 00:16:22.120 --> 00:16:23.230
  • THE INFILLING OF THE SPIRIT THAT
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:25.050
  • CHANGED THESE INDIVIDUALS.
  • 00:16:25.050 --> 00:16:27.030
  • NOW LET ME GIVE YOU A STORY OF
  • 00:16:27.030 --> 00:16:28.110
  • MY OWN THAT I HAVE NOT TALKED
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:29.190
  • ABOUT OFTEN.
  • 00:16:29.190 --> 00:16:30.080
  • I DID NOT LIKE GOING TO SCHOOL.
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:33.160
  • IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT KIND OF
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:34.160
  • SCHOOL IT WAS.
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:35.040
  • I JUST DIDN'T LIKE SCHOOL.
  • 00:16:35.040 --> 00:16:36.000
  • I DIDN'T LIKE STUDY.
  • 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:37.160
  • I LOVED SPORTS.
  • 00:16:37.160 --> 00:16:38.110
  • I LOVED ART.
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.000
  • I COULD MAKE STRAIGHT A'S IN
  • 00:16:39.000 --> 00:16:40.000
  • ANYTHING THAT WAS CREATIVE.
  • 00:16:40.000 --> 00:16:41.060
  • BUT EVERYTHING ELSE I COULD CARE
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:42.170
  • LESS ABOUT.
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:43.100
  • NOW THERE'S A LOT OF KIDS
  • 00:16:43.100 --> 00:16:44.080
  • WATCHING ME THAT YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:16:44.080 --> 00:16:45.180
  • HAVE SAID, YOU'VE GOT TO DO
  • 00:16:45.180 --> 00:16:46.200
  • BETTER IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:47.070
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET YOUR GRADES
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:47.290
  • UP.
  • 00:16:47.290 --> 00:16:48.150
  • HONESTLY, I DIDN'T CARE.
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:50.020
  • BUT THEN WHEN GOD BAPTIZED ME IN

  • SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:07.210
  • MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY WHEN, I
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:11.240

  • 00:17:22.180 --> 00:17:24.030
  • THAT I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THE
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:25.020
  • BIBLE I WANTED TO LEARN MORE AND
  • 00:17:25.020 --> 00:17:27.040

  • WERE TAKING.
  • 00:17:33.240 --> 00:17:34.180
  • NOW PARENTS LISTEN TO ME VERY
  • 00:17:34.180 --> 00:17:36.090
  • CAREFULLY.
  • 00:17:36.090 --> 00:17:37.140
  • WHEN YOU ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO

  • SHOW UP.
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:50.160
  • BECAUSE THE PARENTS WILL TELL
  • 00:17:50.160 --> 00:17:52.200
  • ME, THEY ARE DOING BETTER.
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:54.080
  • THEIR GRADES HAVE GONE UP ONCE
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:55.140
  • THEY'RE SAVED AND FILLED WITH
  • 00:17:55.140 --> 00:17:56.240
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:17:56.240 --> 00:17:57.160
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT EXPANDS THE SOUL
  • 00:17:57.160 --> 00:18:00.040
  • AND THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:00.040 --> 00:18:00.250
  • IT EXPANDS THE MIND.
  • 00:18:00.250 --> 00:18:02.030
  • HE.
  • 00:18:02.030 --> 00:18:02.210
  • IT'S NOT AN IT.
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:03.120
  • HE.
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:04.010
  • BUT THE POWER OF GOD, AND WHEN I
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:05.020
  • SAY IT I'M SPEAKING OF THE POWER
  • 00:18:05.020 --> 00:18:06.020
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:18:06.020 --> 00:18:06.280
  • THE MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER

  • OF GOD, WHAT THIS DOES IS IT
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:10.050
  • DOES SOMETHING NEUROLOGICALLY,
  • 00:18:10.050 --> 00:18:11.170

  • HUMAN BRAIN WHICH ARE FABULOUS.
  • 00:18:19.090 --> 00:18:20.190
  • BUT HE TALKS ABOUT HOW THAT THE
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:22.230
  • HUMAN BRAIN IS IMPACTED BY FAITH
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:24.190
  • AND BY BELIEF, BY SCRIPTURE, BY
  • 00:18:24.190 --> 00:18:27.040
  • PRAYER AND IT LITERALLY
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:28.200
  • TRANSFORMS YOU.
  • 00:18:28.200 --> 00:18:29.230
  • SO IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE THAT
  • 00:18:29.230 --> 00:18:31.250
  • YOU'VE JUST NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:18:31.250 --> 00:18:33.050
  • YOU FEEL LIKE IN LIFE NOT ONLY

  • BUT NONETHELESS WE WANT YOU TO
  • 00:25:34.170 --> 00:25:37.110
  • KNOW THAT MANNA-FEST IS REACHING
  • 00:25:37.110 --> 00:25:39.150
  • THE ENTIRE WORLD AND THAT THERE
  • 00:25:39.150 --> 00:25:41.030
  • ARE PEOPLE BEING SAVED LITERALLY
  • 00:25:41.030 --> 00:25:42.260
  • EVERY WEEK FROM DIFFERENT
  • 00:25:42.260 --> 00:25:44.050
  • COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:25:44.050 --> 00:25:45.210
  • AND YOU KNOW, THE GREATEST THING
  • 00:25:45.210 --> 00:25:47.010
  • ABOUT THAT IS JESUS SAID IN
  • 00:25:47.010 --> 00:25:48.020
  • MATTHEW 24:14 THAT THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:25:48.020 --> 00:25:49.170
  • THE KINGDOM WOULD BE PREACHED AS
  • 00:25:49.170 --> 00:25:51.040
  • A WITNESS UNTO ALL NATIONS AND
  • 00:25:51.040 --> 00:25:52.160
  • THEN THE END WOULD COME.
  • 00:25:52.160 --> 00:25:53.230
  • THEN IN VERSE 15 HE BEGINS TO
  • 00:25:53.230 --> 00:25:56.180
  • TALK ABOUT THE TRIBULATION
  • 00:25:56.180 --> 00:25:57.210
  • PERIOD.
  • 00:25:57.210 --> 00:25:58.100
  • SO I BELIEVE THE END COMING WITH
  • 00:25:58.100 --> 00:25:59.230
  • THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL IS
  • 00:25:59.230 --> 00:26:01.110
  • THE END OF THE CHURCH AGE.
  • 00:26:01.110 --> 00:26:02.100
  • THE DISPENSATION OF THE GRACE OF
  • 00:26:02.100 --> 00:26:03.160
  • GOD AS IT'S CALLED.
  • 00:26:03.160 --> 00:26:04.130
  • THEN THAT HAPPENS WHEN THE
  • 00:26:04.130 --> 00:26:07.030
  • COMING OF THE LORD TAKES PLACE.
  • 00:26:07.030 --> 00:26:08.050
  • ALL OF THE ATTENTION IS FOCUSED
  • 00:26:08.050 --> 00:26:09.130
  • ON THE TIME OF GREAT TRIBULATION
  • 00:26:09.130 --> 00:26:10.290
  • THAT IS MENTIONED BOTH IN, OF
  • 00:26:10.290 --> 00:26:12.220
  • COURSE DANIEL, THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:26:12.220 --> 00:26:14.020
  • PROPHETS AND THE BOOK OF
  • 00:26:14.020 --> 00:26:14.270
  • REVELATION AS WELL.
  • 00:26:14.270 --> 00:26:16.010
  • SO WE DO WANT TO SAY TO YOU THAT
  • 00:26:16.010 --> 00:26:18.170
  • IF YOU'VE NEVER ACCEPTED THE
  • 00:26:18.170 --> 00:26:19.250
  • LORD JESUS AS YOUR LORD AND
  • 00:26:19.250 --> 00:26:21.020
  • SAVIOR; NOW WE'RE NOT TALKING
  • 00:26:21.020 --> 00:26:22.060
  • ABOUT JOINING THE CHURCH.
  • 00:26:22.060 --> 00:26:23.160
  • WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT BECOMING
  • 00:26:23.160 --> 00:26:24.140
  • RELIGIOUS.
  • 00:26:24.140 --> 00:26:25.030
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AN ACTUAL
  • 00:26:25.030 --> 00:26:26.090
  • EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:26:26.090 --> 00:26:27.150
  • WHERE HE ACTUALLY CHANGES YOUR
  • 00:26:27.150 --> 00:26:29.130
  • HEART AND YOUR SPIRIT BECOMES
  • 00:26:29.130 --> 00:26:31.250
  • PURCHASED BACK BY JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:26:31.250 --> 00:26:34.040
  • AND YOU BECOME GOD'S AND HE IS
  • 00:26:34.040 --> 00:26:36.280
  • YOUR FATHER.
  • 00:26:36.280 --> 00:26:37.200
  • WE'RE ASKING YOU TO ACCEPT
  • 00:26:37.200 --> 00:26:39.020
  • CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR BY
  • 00:26:39.020 --> 00:26:40.190
  • ASKING HIM TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:26:40.190 --> 00:26:42.040
  • HEART, FORGIVING YOU OF YOUR
  • 00:26:42.040 --> 00:26:43.080
  • SINS AND BECOMING THE LORD OF
  • 00:26:43.080 --> 00:26:45.150
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:26:45.150 --> 00:26:46.120
  • AND I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:26:46.120 --> 00:26:48.080
  • IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW I KNOW
  • 00:26:48.080 --> 00:26:49.240
  • THAT CHRISTIANITY IS REAL, AND
  • 00:26:49.240 --> 00:26:51.190
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT RELIGION,
  • 00:26:51.190 --> 00:26:52.260
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:26:52.260 --> 00:26:53.200
  • CATHEDRALS.
  • 00:26:53.200 --> 00:26:54.100
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT THE
  • 00:26:54.100 --> 00:26:54.280
  • EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:26:54.280 --> 00:26:55.200
  • IT'S BECAUSE THE CHANGES THAT I
  • 00:26:55.200 --> 00:26:57.160
  • HAVE SEEN THE LORD MAKE IN
  • 00:26:57.160 --> 00:26:58.250
  • PEOPLE'S LIVES THAT ARE SO
  • 00:26:58.250 --> 00:26:59.190
  • RADICAL THEY COULD NEVER DO IT
  • 00:26:59.190 --> 00:27:00.220
  • ON THEIR OWN.
  • 00:27:00.220 --> 00:27:01.150
  • THE OTHER THING IS THE POWER OF
  • 00:27:01.150 --> 00:27:03.010
  • THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:27:03.010 --> 00:27:04.030
  • THAT NAME HAS AUTHORITY ON ANY
  • 00:27:04.030 --> 00:27:05.130
  • NATION OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:27:05.130 --> 00:27:06.260
  • AND NUMBER THREE HAS TO BE THE
  • 00:27:06.260 --> 00:27:08.030
  • BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH
  • 00:27:08.030 --> 00:27:09.100
  • THE EVIDENCE OF PRAYING IN THE
  • 00:27:09.100 --> 00:27:10.250
  • PRAYER LANGUAGE BECAUSE I HAVE
  • 00:27:10.250 --> 00:27:12.140
  • SEEN PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO
  • 00:27:12.140 --> 00:27:13.200
  • EDUCATION PRAYING IN SIX AND
  • 00:27:13.200 --> 00:27:14.270
  • EIGHT KNOWN LANGUAGES BECAUSE OF
  • 00:27:14.270 --> 00:27:16.180
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:27:16.180 --> 00:27:17.170
  • BOTTOM LINE.
  • 00:27:17.170 --> 00:27:18.140
  • GOD IS REAL.
  • 00:27:18.140 --> 00:27:19.110
  • SERVE HIM.
  • 00:27:19.110 --> 00:27:20.060
  • I'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK ON
