  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: IF YOU
  • 00:00:22.240 --> 00:00:24.000
  • BROUGHT YOUR BIBLES,
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:24.250
  • TURN THEM, PLEASE,
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:25.250
  • TO DEUTERONOMY 6,
  • 00:00:25.250 --> 00:00:28.140
  • BEGINNING AT THE 5TH VERSE,
  • 00:00:28.140 --> 00:00:29.170
  • AS TONIGHT WE CONTINUE
  • 00:00:29.170 --> 00:00:31.010
  • WITH THE TEACHING ON
  • 00:00:31.010 --> 00:00:33.080
  • "FAMILY BUSINESS."
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:34.270
  • TONIGHT'S TEACHING IS ENTITLED
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:36.110
  • "HOW TO RAISE THEM RIGHT."
  • 00:00:36.110 --> 00:00:38.190
  • THERE'S A RIGHT AND A WRONG
  • 00:00:38.190 --> 00:00:39.160
  • WAY TO DO EVERYTHING.
  • 00:00:39.160 --> 00:00:40.280
  • AND THE BIBLE GIVES VERY CLEAR
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:42.090
  • INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT WHAT GOD
  • 00:00:42.090 --> 00:00:44.000
  • EXPECTS OF PARENTS IN THE
  • 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:46.110
  • CONCERNS OF RAISING CHILDREN.
  • 00:00:46.110 --> 00:00:49.020
  • LAST WEEK,
  • 00:00:49.020 --> 00:00:49.210
  • I ASKED YOU TO CONSIDER THE
  • 00:00:49.210 --> 00:00:50.180
  • CONCEPT THAT YOU WERE ACTUALLY
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:52.160
  • A PART OF A SMALL FAMILY
  • 00:00:52.160 --> 00:00:53.260
  • BUSINESS;
  • 00:00:53.260 --> 00:00:54.250
  • THAT IN THIS FAMILY BUSINESS
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:56.050
  • WAS A 50/50 PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:00:56.050 --> 00:00:58.030
  • THAT EXISTED BETWEEN HUSBANDS
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:01:00.070
  • AND WIVES.
  • 00:01:00.070 --> 00:01:01.130
  • AND WE READ THE TEXT WHERE
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:02.160
  • JESUS SAID: FOR THIS REASON
  • 00:01:02.160 --> 00:01:04.100
  • SHALL A MAN LEAVE HIS FATHER
  • 00:01:04.100 --> 00:01:06.060
  • AND MOTHER AND CLEAVE
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:07.120
  • TO HIS WIFE.
  • 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:08.150
  • THERE'S TWO VERY REAL STEPS
  • 00:01:08.150 --> 00:01:10.030
  • TO THAT; ONE IS LEAVING,
  • 00:01:10.030 --> 00:01:11.260
  • AND THE OTHER IS CLEAVING.
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:13.160
  • AND GOD EXPECTS YOU TO DO
  • 00:01:13.160 --> 00:01:14.260
  • BOTH.
  • 00:01:14.260 --> 00:01:15.270
  • HE WANTS THIS RELATIONSHIP TO
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:17.200
  • BE A KINGDOM OF GOD FRANCHISE.
  • 00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:20.140
  • AND THE BIBLE IS A QUALITY
  • 00:01:20.140 --> 00:01:21.190
  • CONTROL MANUAL THAT TELLS YOU
  • 00:01:21.190 --> 00:01:23.150
  • WHAT HE EXPECTS OF YOUR
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:24.250
  • FRANCHISE.
  • 00:01:24.250 --> 00:01:25.290
  • AND IN THIS FRANCHISE,
  • 00:01:25.290 --> 00:01:27.110
  • IT SAYS THAT HE BLESSED THEM
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:29.100
  • AND HE TOLD THEM: BE FRUITFUL
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:31.220
  • AND --
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:33.050
  • (MULTIPLY.)
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:33.260
  • -- MULTIPLY.
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:35.140
  • GOD DOES NOT WANT YOU TO
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:36.160
  • RAISE MORE CATS THAN KIDS.
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:38.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:40.060
  • AND THIS IS NOT ONLY
  • 00:01:40.060 --> 00:01:41.150
  • A BIBLICAL ISSUE;
  • 00:01:41.150 --> 00:01:42.160
  • IT'S ALSO A SOCIETAL ISSUE.
  • 00:01:42.160 --> 00:01:44.070
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST CHALLENGES
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:45.130
  • THAT WE HAVE ON THE EARTH
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:46.110
  • TODAY IS THAT WE ARE HAVING
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:47.180
  • FEWER AND FEWER BABIES,
  • 00:01:47.180 --> 00:01:49.210
  • AND WE ARE LIVING LONGER
  • 00:01:49.210 --> 00:01:50.260
  • AND LONGER.
  • 00:01:50.260 --> 00:01:51.240
  • THIS SIMPLY MEANS THAT THERE
  • 00:01:51.240 --> 00:01:53.060
  • ARE LESS OF US TO TAKE CARE
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:55.040
  • OF THE REST OF US.
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:57.140
  • THE OTHER DAY,
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:58.010
  • I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH AN
  • 00:01:58.010 --> 00:01:58.260
  • INDIVIDUAL.
  • 00:01:58.260 --> 00:02:00.030
  • YOU KNOW I GREW UP IN A FAMILY
  • 00:02:00.030 --> 00:02:01.050
  • OF FIVE.
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:01.290
  • AND MY GRANDFATHER GREW UP
  • 00:02:01.290 --> 00:02:03.060
  • IN A FAMILY OF ELEVEN.
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:04.230
  • AND WHEN PEOPLE HEAR
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:05.110
  • THAT I HAVE FOUR KIDS,
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:06.130
  • THEY LOOK AT ME LIKE
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:07.050
  • I'VE LOST MY MIND.
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:09.020
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:09.240
  • HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU HAVE?
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:10.230
  • FOUR.
  • 00:02:10.230 --> 00:02:11.090
  • AH, REALLY?
  • 00:02:11.090 --> 00:02:12.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:13.070
  • LIKE IT WAS AN ACCIDENT
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:14.110
  • OR SOMETHING.
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:16.030
  • AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:02:16.030 --> 00:02:16.180
  • WHY DID YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:17.160
  • AND I SAID, WELL,
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:18.030
  • IT'S A BUSINESS DECISION.
  • 00:02:18.030 --> 00:02:19.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:21.130
  • AND THEY SAID, WELL,
  • 00:02:21.130 --> 00:02:23.030
  • WHY IS IT A BUSINESS DECISION?
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.030
  • I SAID,
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:24.160
  • WELL AT SOME POINT IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.000
  • I'M GOING TO NEED SOME HELP
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:26.290
  • MAKING DECISIONS.
  • 00:02:26.290 --> 00:02:27.250
  • I SAID,
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:28.110
  • MAYBE I'M GOING TO GET TO AN
  • 00:02:28.110 --> 00:02:29.050
  • AGE WHERE SOMEONE NEEDS TO
  • 00:02:29.050 --> 00:02:30.130
  • THINK FOR ME.
  • 00:02:30.130 --> 00:02:31.260
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:02:31.260 --> 00:02:32.180
  • AMONGST MY FOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:33.160
  • I SAID MY OLDEST IS VERY
  • 00:02:33.160 --> 00:02:35.040
  • COMPASSIONATE.
  • 00:02:35.040 --> 00:02:35.250
  • SHE'S VERY TENDER.
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:36.210
  • SHE ALWAYS WANTS TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:38.240
  • THAT MOM AND DAD WERE WELL
  • 00:02:38.240 --> 00:02:39.240
  • TAKEN CARE OF.
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:40.110
  • I SAID, MY OLDEST SON,
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:42.060
  • HE'S COURAGEOUS.
  • 00:02:42.060 --> 00:02:43.030
  • HE'S WILLING TO TAKE A STAND
  • 00:02:43.030 --> 00:02:44.120
  • AND DO THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:02:44.120 --> 00:02:45.160
  • MY NEXT SON,
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:46.290
  • HE'S VERY DELIBERATE.
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:48.020
  • HE'S AGGRESSIVE.
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:48.280
  • IF SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE,
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:50.280
  • HE'S GOING TO BE THE MAN
  • 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:51.230
  • FOR THE JOB.
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:52.120
  • MY BABY, SHE'S THREE.
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:53.220
  • SHE'S JUST GETTING STARTED.
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:54.250
  • WE DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:55.140
  • WE CALL HER "THE FIRE CRACKER"
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:56.190
  • BECAUSE SHE'S SMALL
  • 00:02:56.190 --> 00:02:57.160
  • AND SHE WILL GO OFF.
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:59.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:00.270
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:02.150
  • SO I FIGURE THAT IN MY OLD AGE,
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:05.030
  • AT SOME POINT,
  • 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:06.030
  • IF MY FOUR CHILDREN HAVE TO
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.170
  • SIT DOWN AND THINK ABOUT ME,
  • 00:03:07.170 --> 00:03:10.080
  • BETWEEN THE FOUR OF THEM,
  • 00:03:10.080 --> 00:03:11.230
  • THEY'LL MAKE A GOOD DECISION.
  • 00:03:11.230 --> 00:03:14.160
  • AND HE GOES, OH.
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:16.150
  • AND THEN I ASKED HIM,
  • 00:03:16.150 --> 00:03:17.130
  • HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU HAVE?
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:19.080
  • HE SAID, ONE.
  • 00:03:19.080 --> 00:03:21.000
  • I SAID, GOOD LUCK.
  • 00:03:21.000 --> 00:03:22.200
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:22.200 --> 00:03:24.190
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO ENJOY HEAVEN
  • 00:03:25.270 --> 00:03:28.270
  • ON EARTH.
  • 00:03:28.270 --> 00:03:29.240
  • AND HEAVEN COMES TO EARTH
  • 00:03:29.240 --> 00:03:32.040
  • WHEN YOU DO WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.230
  • TO DO IN RUNNING
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:35.230
  • A FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:37.130
  • THE CHILDREN THAT YOU PRODUCE
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:38.130
  • ARE THE PRODUCT THAT YOU
  • 00:03:38.130 --> 00:03:39.130
  • PROVIDE TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:40.190
  • AND YOUR CUSTOMERS IS THE
  • 00:03:40.190 --> 00:03:41.210
  • WORLD AROUND YOU, YOUR CHURCH,
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:44.050
  • YOUR CITY, YOUR SCHOOL.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:45.160
  • THESE CHILDREN ARE NOT ONLY
  • 00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:46.270
  • GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:48.080
  • AREAS, BUT BELIEVE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:50.000
  • SOME DAY THEY'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:03:50.000 --> 00:03:51.030
  • LEADERS IN THOSE AREAS.
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:53.220
  • AND IF THEY'RE NOT TRAINED
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:54.250
  • TO LEAD WHEN THEY'RE YOUNG,
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:56.080
  • THEY WON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:57.030
  • DECISIONS WHEN THEY GET OLD.
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:03:59.240
  • AND GOD EXPECTS THIS TO BE
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:01.170
  • SOMETHING THAT YOU TAKE
  • 00:04:01.170 --> 00:04:02.140
  • VERY SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:03.240
  • WHENEVER YOU HAVE A FAMILY,
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.040
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:05.250
  • A TREMENDOUS INVESTMENT OF
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.030
  • NOT ONLY FINANCIAL RESOURCES,
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:08.280
  • BUT IT'S GOING TO TAME TIME.
  • 00:04:08.280 --> 00:04:10.090
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE EFFORT.
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.100
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:12.050
  • TO PAY ATTENTION,
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:14.080
  • BECAUSE GOD DOES INDEED WANT
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.240
  • TO ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM
  • 00:04:15.240 --> 00:04:17.240
  • THROUGH THIS FAMILY.
  • 00:04:17.240 --> 00:04:19.170
  • THE REASON THERE'S A LADDER
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:20.210
  • HERE IS BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:22.040
  • TO A LADDER,
  • 00:04:22.040 --> 00:04:23.020
  • NOT ONLY CAN THINGS GO UP,
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:24.260
  • BUT BLESSINGS CAN COME DOWN.
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:27.080
  • AND GOD WANTS THAT
  • 00:04:27.080 --> 00:04:28.230
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:28.230 --> 00:04:30.120
  • TONIGHT WE READ FROM
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:31.080
  • DEUTERONOMY 6,
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:32.190
  • BEGINNING AT THE 5TH VERSE,
  • 00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:33.290
  • THROUGH VERSE 9,
  • 00:04:33.290 --> 00:04:34.270
  • AS WE UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.220
  • EXPECTS OF PARENTS WHEN IT
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:38.050
  • COMES TO RAISING YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:40.020
  • AND WE TALK TONIGHT ABOUT
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:41.020
  • "HOW TO RAISE THEM RIGHT."
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:42.190
  • IF YOU FOUND DEUTERONOMY 6:5,
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:44.090
  • SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:45.060
  • (AMEN.)
  • 00:04:45.060 --> 00:04:46.060

  • INDIVIDUALS ACTUALLY GET PAID

  • LOTS OF MONEY TO ANALYZE DATA,

  • THEY CAN.
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:06:58.110
  • AND THEY LOOK FOR THINGS THAT

  • REPEAT THEMSELVES OVER
  • 00:06:59.130 --> 00:07:00.150

  • TRENDS.

  • HAPPENED SO MANY TIMES
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:06.240
  • REOCCURRING IN THE PAST,
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.080
  • THAT IT'S GOING TO CONTINUE
  • 00:07:08.080 --> 00:07:09.090
  • TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:10.220
  • FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:11.130
  • IF YOU SEE THE OIL PRICE GO
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:12.270
  • UP,
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:13.170
  • THINGS THAT USE OIL NATURALLY
  • 00:07:13.170 --> 00:07:16.040
  • GO UP IN PRICE AS WELL.
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.220
  • IF GAS GETS EXPENSIVE,
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.140
  • THEN FOOD GETS EXPENSIVE;
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:20.260
  • BECAUSE FOOD COMES ON DELIVERY
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.060
  • TRUCKS,
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:22.250

  • WITH DIESEL.
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:25.080
  • AND ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:26.080
  • THINGS ARE AFFECTED BY
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:27.180
  • THE TRENDS IN THE PRICE OF OIL.
  • 00:07:27.180 --> 00:07:30.120
  • IF THERE'S A FREEZE IN FLORIDA
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:32.020
  • AND AN ORANGE CROP GOES DOWN,
  • 00:07:32.020 --> 00:07:33.210
  • THEY KNOW THAT THERE'S GOING
  • 00:07:33.210 --> 00:07:34.130
  • TO BE FEWER ORANGES AROUND.
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:35.260
  • SO WHENEVER FEWER ORANGES ARE
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:37.160
  • AVAILABLE,
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:38.040
  • THEN ORANGE JUICE IS GOING TO
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.100
  • GET MORE EXPENSIVE.
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.110
  • THERE'S ALL KINDS OF THINGS
  • 00:07:40.110 --> 00:07:41.280
  • THAT YOU CAN LOOK AT
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:42.280
  • IN THE WORLD OF BUSINESS,
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:44.100
  • AND IT GIVES YOU AN
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:45.130
  • UNDERSTANDING OF WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:47.090
  • AND WHERE YOU CAN EXPECT TO GO
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:48.220
  • IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:50.070
  • THE SAME IS TRUE
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:51.050
  • OF THE FAMILY.
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:52.240
  • YOU CAN LOOK BACK AT SOCIETY
  • 00:07:52.240 --> 00:07:55.190
  • AND AT CULTURE,
  • 00:07:55.190 --> 00:07:56.200
  • AND YOU CAN SEE THINGS THAT
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:58.010
  • WERE HAPPENING 60 YEARS AGO
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.210
  • IN THE LIVING ROOM;
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:00.230
  • THAT ARE NOW PLAYING OUT
  • 00:08:00.230 --> 00:08:01.260
  • IN A LARGE PART IN THE WORLD
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:03.200
  • THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:04.250
  • ABRAHAM LINCOLN,
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:05.270
  • IN HIS GENERATION, SAID THIS.
  • 00:08:05.270 --> 00:08:07.220
  • HE SAID THAT THE LESSONS
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:09.080
  • IN THE CLASSROOM FOR ONE
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:10.190
  • GENERATION WOULD BECOME
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:11.250
  • THE POLICIES OF THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.070
  • IN THE NEXT.
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:14.250
  • AND HE WAS EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 00:08:14.250 --> 00:08:17.070
  • SO IF YOU LOOK BACK AT AMERICA
  • 00:08:17.070 --> 00:08:18.210
  • 60 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:08:18.210 --> 00:08:20.080
  • YOU SEE THINGS THAT WERE
  • 00:08:20.080 --> 00:08:21.130
  • TAKING PLACE THAT ARE HAVING
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:22.280
  • A GREAT IMPACT ON OUR SOCIETY,
  • 00:08:22.280 --> 00:08:25.030
  • ON OUR CULTURE,
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:26.020
  • AND ON OUR FAMILIES NOW.
  • 00:08:26.020 --> 00:08:28.270
  • HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED 60 YEARS
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.210
  • AGO.
  • 00:08:30.210 --> 00:08:31.220
  • IT WAS 1956,
  • 00:08:31.220 --> 00:08:33.050
  • TEN YEARS AFTER THE END
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:35.270
  • OF WORLD WAR II.
  • 00:08:35.270 --> 00:08:38.040
  • AFTER THE END OF WORLD WAR II,
  • 00:08:38.040 --> 00:08:40.000
  • A LOT OF THINGS TOOK PLACE.
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:41.140
  • CULTURALLY,
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:42.020
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING CALLED
  • 00:08:42.020 --> 00:08:43.120
  • "THE BABY BOOM."
  • 00:08:43.120 --> 00:08:45.110
  • PEOPLE CAME HOME FROM WAR;
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:47.000
  • THEY STARTED HAVING CHILDREN.
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.050
  • NOT ONLY DID THEY COME HOME
  • 00:08:48.050 --> 00:08:49.040
  • FROM WAR AND START HAVING
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.040
  • CHILDREN,
  • 00:08:50.040 --> 00:08:50.190
  • BUT MEDICAL SCIENCE TOOK OFF
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:52.180
  • ON A CURVE THAT GAVE PEOPLE
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:54.060
  • THE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE
  • 00:08:54.060 --> 00:08:55.090
  • LONGER.
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:56.120
  • NOT ONLY DID THEY HAVE
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:08:57.140
  • THE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE LONGER
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:08:58.190
  • AND WERE MORE BABIES BEING BORN,
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:01.010
  • BUT SOMETHING ELSE OCCURRED AS
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.170
  • WELL,
  • 00:09:02.170 --> 00:09:03.120
  • AND THAT WAS SHORT-TERM
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:05.040
  • LENDING.
  • 00:09:05.040 --> 00:09:06.120
  • PRIOR TO WORLD WAR II,
  • 00:09:06.120 --> 00:09:07.160
  • IF YOU COULDN'T BUY IT
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:08.220
  • WITH THE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET,
  • 00:09:08.220 --> 00:09:10.030
  • YOU COULDN'T FIND SOMEBODY
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.080
  • TO BORROW THE MONEY FROM.
  • 00:09:11.080 --> 00:09:13.060
  • BUT AFTER WORLD WAR II,
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:14.140
  • BANKS STARTED GIVING LOANS
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:16.080
  • BASED ON CREDIT.
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:17.150
  • AND WHEN THOSE LOANS WERE
  • 00:09:17.150 --> 00:09:18.150
  • MADE, YOU COULD GO GET A CAR.
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:19.290
  • AND WHEN YOU GOT A CAR,
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:20.250
  • YOU COULD MOVE OUT
  • 00:09:20.250 --> 00:09:21.180
  • IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:22.060
  • AND WHEN YOU GOT OUT
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:22.290
  • TO THE SUBURBS,
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:23.180
  • YOU COULD DRIVE BACK
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:24.100
  • INTO THE CITY.
  • 00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:26.010
  • ALL OF THESE THINGS STARTED
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:27.090
  • TO TAKE PLACE 60 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:29.040
  • AND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.050
  • THEM,
  • 00:09:30.050 --> 00:09:30.240
  • IN THEIR OWN STRANGE WAY,
  • 00:09:30.240 --> 00:09:32.210
  • ATTRIBUTED TO A VERY DEADLY
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.190
  • STATISTIC IN TERMS OF THE
  • 00:09:34.190 --> 00:09:35.230
  • FAMILY, AND THAT IS DIVORCE.
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:38.290
  • FOLLOWING WORLD WAR II,
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.110
  • FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS,
  • 00:09:40.110 --> 00:09:41.200
  • DIVORCE DOUBLED.
  • 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:43.100
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:43.100 --> 00:09:44.110
  • WELL, WHEN THE WAR BROKE OUT,
  • 00:09:44.110 --> 00:09:45.210
  • LOTS OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:46.200
  • NOT KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THEY
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:47.170
  • WOULD COME BACK FROM THE WAR,
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:48.230
  • JUST DECIDED TO GO DOWN TO
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:49.240
  • THE JUSTICE OF THE PEACE
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:50.210
  • AND GET MARRIED.
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:52.250
  • THEY HAD A HONEYMOON.
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:54.010
  • HE SHIPPED OFF.
  • 00:09:54.010 --> 00:09:55.020
  • FOUR YEARS LATER,
  • 00:09:55.020 --> 00:09:56.030
  • HE CAME HOME AND REINTRODUCED
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:09:57.080
  • HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:09:59.130
  • SO THEY DECIDED THAT THEY
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:00.190
  • WEREN'T GOING TO LIVE TOGETHER
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:01.150
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:02.230
  • NOT ONLY DID THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:04.140
  • FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH OCCUR,
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:06.070
  • BUT THIS ECONOMIC GROWTH LED
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:07.160
  • TO MORE STRESS.
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:08.170
  • HOW MANY OF YOU -- I'M NOT
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:09.170
  • TALKING ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:10:09.170 --> 00:10:10.190
  • BUT HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW
  • 00:10:10.190 --> 00:10:11.190
  • FAMILIES THAT HAVE HAD A FIGHT
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:12.240
  • ONCE OR TWICE ABOUT MONEY?
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:17.130
  • SO YOU'VE GOT ALL THESE
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:18.040
  • SHORT-TERM NOTES.
  • 00:10:18.040 --> 00:10:19.250
  • PRIOR TO THE WAR,
  • 00:10:19.250 --> 00:10:20.190
  • IF YOU COULDN'T AFFORD IT,
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:21.130
  • YOU DIDN'T BUY IT.
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:22.070
  • BUT NOW YOU CAN AFFORD A HOUSE,
  • 00:10:22.070 --> 00:10:23.230
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN TAKE A MORTGAGE.
  • 00:10:23.230 --> 00:10:25.040
  • AND NOW,
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:25.190
  • YOU CAN AFFORD TWO CARS,
  • 00:10:25.190 --> 00:10:26.220
  • BECAUSE THEY'LL LOPE YOU MONEY
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:27.230
  • AT THE BANK.
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:28.140
  • AND NOW,
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.020
  • BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:29.250
  • THIS TRAGIC EXPERIENCE
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:31.000
  • OF WORLD WAR II,
  • 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:31.250
  • WE HAVE A MINDSET
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:33.010
  • THAT LIFE IS SHORT;
  • 00:10:33.010 --> 00:10:34.020
  • LET'S LIVE FOR THE DAY.
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:35.010
  • LET'S NOT PLAN FOR TOMORROW.
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.160
  • AND THEN YOU GET TO THE MIDDLE
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:37.160
  • OF THE MONTH,
  • 00:10:37.160 --> 00:10:38.030
  • AND YOU'RE OUT OF MONEY.
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:40.150
  • SO ALL OF THESE THINGS STARTED
  • 00:10:40.150 --> 00:10:41.250
  • TO PILE UP.
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:42.280
  • AND WHAT HAPPENS WAS DADS
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:45.050
  • STARTED WALKING OUT ON THEIR
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:47.010
  • RESPONSIBILITY AS FATHERS.
  • 00:10:47.040 --> 00:10:50.040
  • THEY WENT DOWN TO THE COURT,
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:51.050
  • THEY SIGNED A PIECE OF PAPER,
  • 00:10:51.050 --> 00:10:52.160
  • AND LEGALLY THEY WERE
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:53.180
  • SEPARATED, BUT SPIRITUALLY,
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:55.230
  • THEY HAD DECIMATED THE FAMILY.
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:10:59.140
  • GOD DID NOT INTEND THE FAMILY
  • 00:10:59.140 --> 00:11:01.020
  • TO WORK WITH ONE PARENT.
  • 00:11:01.020 --> 00:11:02.140
  • HE INTENDED FOR IT TO WORK
  • 00:11:02.140 --> 00:11:03.190
  • WITH MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:07.060
  • IT'S NOT THAT SINGLE-FAMILY
  • 00:11:07.060 --> 00:11:08.200
  • PARENTING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:10.130
  • IT'S JUST EXPONENTIALLY HARDER
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:12.230
  • WHEN YOU'VE GOT TO DO IT
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:13.210
  • ON YOUR OWN,
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:14.180
  • BECAUSE THAT'S NOT THE WAY GOD
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:16.140
  • WANTED IT TO BE.
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:20.010
  • GOD EXPECTS FATHERS TO BE
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:23.180
  • THE LEADER.
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:24.290
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:11:24.290 --> 00:11:25.250
  • WHENEVER YOU READ
  • 00:11:25.250 --> 00:11:27.000
  • EPHESIANS 6:4,
  • 00:11:27.000 --> 00:11:29.280
  • IT SAYS: AND YOU FATHERS --
  • 00:11:29.280 --> 00:11:32.010
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:11:32.010 --> 00:11:32.280
  • AND YOU FATHERS.
  • 00:11:32.280 --> 00:11:35.000
  • -- BRING THEM UP.
  • 00:11:35.000 --> 00:11:37.010
  • GOD LAYS THE BURDEN ON DADS.
  • 00:11:37.090 --> 00:11:40.090
  • WHY?
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:41.100
  • BECAUSE DAD IS A VERY
  • 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:42.240
  • IMPORTANT PERSON
  • 00:11:42.240 --> 00:11:44.030
  • IN THE FAMILY DYNAMIC.
  • 00:11:44.030 --> 00:11:45.220
  • DAD IS THE ONE THAT REPRESENTS
  • 00:11:45.220 --> 00:11:47.290
  • THE HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:11:47.290 --> 00:11:49.220
  • IF CHILDREN DON'T HAVE A GOOD
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:51.170
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS EARTHLY
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:52.290
  • FATHER,
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:53.150
  • THEY'RE GOING TO TRANSLATE
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:54.190
  • THOSE SAME FEELINGS ONTO
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:56.150
  • THEIR HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:57.190
  • IF THEY HAVE TRUST ISSUES
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:11:58.230
  • WITH DAD HERE ON EARTH,
  • 00:11:58.230 --> 00:12:00.050
  • THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TRUST
  • 00:12:00.050 --> 00:12:01.010
  • ISSUES WITH FATHER GOD
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:02.000
  • IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:12:02.000 --> 00:12:02.190
  • IF DAD HERE ON EARTH IS NEVER
  • 00:12:02.190 --> 00:12:04.050
  • THERE,
  • 00:12:04.050 --> 00:12:04.220
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE AN
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:05.240
  • EASY TIME BELIEVING THAT
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:07.050
  • THERE'S ONE IN HEAVEN THAT SAYS,
  • 00:12:07.050 --> 00:12:08.150
  • "I'LL NEVER LEAVE YOU
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:09.060
  • NOR FORSAKE YOU."
  • 00:12:09.060 --> 00:12:10.060
  • IF DAD HAS TEMPER ISSUES,
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:11.280
  • THEY'RE PROBABLY GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:12.250
  • A VISION OF A MEAN,
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:13.260
  • ANGRY GOD WITH A BUCKET FULL
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.080
  • OF LIGHTNING BOLTS UP THERE
  • 00:12:15.080 --> 00:12:16.110
  • ON HIS THRONE.
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:19.150
  • AND GOD HOLDS FATHERS
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:21.030
  • RESPONSIBLE.
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:23.190
  • AND IF YOU READ THE VERSE
  • 00:12:23.190 --> 00:12:24.250
  • THAT WE'VE READ TONIGHT
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:25.240
  • FROM DEUTERONOMY,
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:28.090
  • AND YOU UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING
  • 00:12:28.090 --> 00:12:29.210
  • THAT IT SAYS THAT YOU SHALL
  • 00:12:29.210 --> 00:12:31.020
  • TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY;
  • 00:12:31.020 --> 00:12:33.270
  • THAT YOU SHALL TALK WITH THEM
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.140
  • WHEN YOU SIT IN YOUR HOUSE,
  • 00:12:35.140 --> 00:12:37.050
  • AND WHEN YOU WALK BY THE WAY,
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:38.260
  • AND WHEN YOU LIE DOWN,
  • 00:12:38.260 --> 00:12:40.040
  • AND WHEN YOU RISE UP;
  • 00:12:40.040 --> 00:12:41.210
  • YOU'LL KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:43.080
  • TEACH DILIGENTLY IF YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:45.080
  • THERE.
  • 00:12:45.080 --> 00:12:47.170
  • SO GOD EXPECTS YOU,
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:49.080
  • AS A FAMILY, TO BE TOGETHER.
  • 00:12:50.270 --> 00:12:53.270
  • THE PARENTING OF THE BIBLE IS
  • 00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:55.040
  • A VERY DESCRIPTIVE, ACTIVE,
  • 00:12:55.040 --> 00:12:57.180
  • PRESENT PARENT.
  • 00:12:57.180 --> 00:12:59.280
  • WHENEVER YOU READ
  • 00:12:59.280 --> 00:13:00.200
  • DEUTERONOMY 6 AND IT SAYS,
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:02.140
  • YOU SHALL TALK WITH THEM,
  • 00:13:02.140 --> 00:13:03.240
  • YOU SHALL WALK WITH THEM,
  • 00:13:03.240 --> 00:13:05.100
  • YOU SHALL VISIT WITH THEM;
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:06.260
  • IT MEANS THAT AS YOU GO
  • 00:13:06.260 --> 00:13:08.140
  • THROUGH LIFE,
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:09.090
  • YOU CONNECT THE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:13:09.090 --> 00:13:11.000
  • OF THE BIBLE WITH BEHAVIORS
  • 00:13:11.000 --> 00:13:13.020
  • THAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.280
  • YOUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE ABLE
  • 00:13:14.280 --> 00:13:16.000
  • TO WATCH HOW YOU LIVE
  • 00:13:16.000 --> 00:13:17.120
  • AND KNOW WHO YOU LIVE THAT WAY,
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:19.040
  • BASED ON WHAT YOU'VE TOLD THEM
  • 00:13:19.040 --> 00:13:20.200
  • IS FOUND IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:13:20.200 --> 00:13:23.170
  • NOW WE CAN TALK ABOUT 60 YEARS
  • 00:13:23.170 --> 00:13:24.290
  • AGO,
  • 00:13:24.290 --> 00:13:25.140
  • THE DIVORCE RATE BEGINNING TO
  • 00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:26.140
  • GO UP.
  • 00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:27.010
  • BUT DIVORCE IS NOT THE ONLY
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:28.040
  • FORM OF SEPARATION.
  • 00:13:28.040 --> 00:13:30.080
  • SOMETIMES THE REASON THAT
  • 00:13:30.080 --> 00:13:31.160
  • THESE TWO PEOPLE ARE SEPARATED
  • 00:13:31.160 --> 00:13:33.130
  • FROM THESE KIDS IS BECAUSE
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:35.080
  • THEY HAVE A WRONG SET
  • 00:13:35.080 --> 00:13:36.200
  • OF PRIORITIES.
  • 00:13:36.200 --> 00:13:38.230
  • THEY'RE MORE INTO "ME" TIME
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:40.090
  • THAN THEY ARE "WE" TIME.
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:42.140
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:13:42.140 --> 00:13:43.100
  • THE DAY YOU SAY, "I DO "
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:45.010
  • "ME" TIME DIES.
  • 00:13:46.280 --> 00:13:49.280
  • WHOA.
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:51.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:51.100 --> 00:13:52.260
  • BECAUSE YOUR PRIORITIES HAVE
  • 00:13:53.140 --> 00:13:56.140
  • GOT TO SHIFT.
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:13:58.150
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE SEPARATED
  • 00:13:58.150 --> 00:13:59.210
  • BY THEIR PRIORITIES.
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:01.040
  • THEY DON'T WANT TO TAKE
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:02.010
  • ON THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:14:02.010 --> 00:14:03.090
  • OF BEING A PARENT.
  • 00:14:03.090 --> 00:14:04.050
  • THEY'RE TOO SELFISH TO
  • 00:14:04.050 --> 00:14:05.060
  • SACRIFICE THEMSELVES IN THE
  • 00:14:05.060 --> 00:14:07.010
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT'S NECESSARY
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:09.010
  • AS A MOTHER, AS A FATHER,
  • 00:14:09.010 --> 00:14:10.050
  • AS A HUSBAND, AS A WIFE.
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:12.040
  • AND THEN SOMETIMES KIDS FEEL
  • 00:14:12.040 --> 00:14:13.200
  • SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:14.220
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT IS
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:15.160
  • "PASSIVE PARENTING."
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:18.050
  • PASSIVE PARENTS ARE THE ONES
  • 00:14:18.050 --> 00:14:19.090
  • THAT MAKE EXCUSES ABOUT
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:20.150
  • EVERYTHING THEIR KIDS DO,
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:22.000
  • AND THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING TO
  • 00:14:22.000 --> 00:14:23.090
  • TRAIN THAT CHILD TO KNOW RIGHT
  • 00:14:23.090 --> 00:14:24.250
  • FROM WRONG.
  • 00:14:25.130 --> 00:14:28.130
  • THEY COME OUT IN PUBLIC
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:29.070
  • AND THEY GO, OH, THEY NEVER ACT
  • 00:14:29.070 --> 00:14:30.120
  • THIS WAY AT HOME.
  • 00:14:30.120 --> 00:14:33.110
  • DON'T START WITH A LIE.
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:34.100
  • THEY'RE WORSE.
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:35.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:35.230 --> 00:14:37.140
  • AND LET ME JUST GIVE YOU
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:40.090
  • A FREE PARENTING TIP.
  • 00:14:41.030 --> 00:14:44.030
  • IF PEOPLE DON'T LIKE BEING
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:45.190
  • AROUND THEM WHEN THEY'RE
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:46.130
  • THIS LITTLE,
  • 00:14:46.130 --> 00:14:47.240
  • THEY'RE REALLY NOT GOING TO
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:48.160
  • LIKE BEING AROUND THEM
  • 00:14:48.160 --> 00:14:49.120
  • WHEN THEY'RE THIS BIG.
  • 00:14:49.120 --> 00:14:51.190
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET
  • 00:14:51.190 --> 00:14:52.140
  • BETTER AS THEY GET TALLER.
  • 00:14:52.140 --> 00:14:55.080
  • I KNOW THAT THEY'RE BORN
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:56.080
  • LITTLE ANGELS,
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:56.290
  • BUT THEIR WINGS GET SHORTER
  • 00:14:56.290 --> 00:14:58.180
  • EVERY YEAR THAT THEY GROW.
  • 00:14:58.180 --> 00:15:00.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:01.230
  • YOU'VE GOT TO TRAIN A CHILD.
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:07.040
  • AND YOU FATHERS,
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:08.260
  • TRAIN --
  • 00:15:08.260 --> 00:15:09.160
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:15:09.160 --> 00:15:10.160
  • AND YOU FATHERS, TRAIN.
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:13.210
  • DAD IS THE DIRECTOR.
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:16.210
  • GOD HOLDS DAD RESPONSIBLE.
  • 00:15:16.210 --> 00:15:19.100
  • BUT MOM IS EITHER
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:21.070
  • THE MULTIPLIER
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:22.240
  • OR SHE IS THE DIVIDER.
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:25.090
  • IF A PARENT IS IN AGREEMENT
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:27.120
  • WITH THE OTHER PARENT,
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:28.150
  • THE KIDS HAVE NO CHOICE.
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:31.240
  • BUT IF THE KIDS CAN GET MOM
  • 00:15:31.240 --> 00:15:33.000
  • AND DAD ON OPPOSITE SIDES
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:34.130
  • OF THE ISSUE,
  • 00:15:34.130 --> 00:15:35.130
  • THEN THE INMATES RULE
  • 00:15:35.130 --> 00:15:36.210
  • THE ASYLUM.
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:38.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:38.080 --> 00:15:39.230
  • THERE'S A BIBLICAL EXAMPLE
  • 00:15:39.230 --> 00:15:42.100
  • FOR THIS.
  • 00:15:42.100 --> 00:15:43.290
  • LOOK AT GENESIS 27.
  • 00:15:43.290 --> 00:15:46.090
  • ISAAC TELLS ESAU THAT HE'S
  • 00:15:46.090 --> 00:15:48.110
  • ABOUT TO PASS FROM THIS LIFE
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:49.230
  • AND HE WANTS TO GIVE HIM
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:50.160
  • HIS BLESSING BEFORE HE DIES.
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:52.120
  • AND SO HE TELLS ESAU: GO OUT
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:53.230
  • AND HUNT THE DEER THAT I LIKE
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:54.280
  • TO EAT, AND BRING IT BACK.
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:56.000
  • AND AS I'M EATING THE MEAL,
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:15:57.040
  • I'LL GIVE YOU YOUR BIRTHRIGHT.
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:15:58.190
  • REBEKAH, ISAAC'S WIFE,
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:16:00.130
  • DOES NOT AGREE WITH WHAT DAD
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:02.020
  • HAS JUST SAID TO HIS SON ESAU.
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:04.040
  • AND SO SHE GOES TO THE SON
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:05.180
  • THAT SHE LIKES BETTER.
  • 00:16:05.180 --> 00:16:06.290
  • AND SHE SAYS, LISTEN.
  • 00:16:06.290 --> 00:16:07.270
  • WHILE YOUR BROTHER'S OUT THERE
  • 00:16:07.270 --> 00:16:08.240
  • WALKING IN THE FIELD,
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:09.290
  • WE'RE GOING TO GO KILL
  • 00:16:09.290 --> 00:16:10.210
  • A LITTLE GOAT.
  • 00:16:10.210 --> 00:16:11.200
  • WE'RE GOING TO MAKE THE TACOS
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:12.180
  • JUST LIKE DAD LIKES THE TACOS.
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:14.050
  • WE'RE GOING TO PUT THE HAIR
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:14.270
  • ON YOUR ARMS.
  • 00:16:14.270 --> 00:16:15.290
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GO IN THERE
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:16.250
  • AND SERVE HIM THE MEAL.
  • 00:16:16.250 --> 00:16:17.210
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:16:17.210 --> 00:16:18.160
  • THE BLESSING.
  • 00:16:18.160 --> 00:16:20.000
  • NOW JUST FOR AN ADDENDUM HERE,
  • 00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:22.110
  • THAT TELLS ME THAT ESAU
  • 00:16:22.110 --> 00:16:23.210
  • WAS HAIRY AND HE SMELT
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:25.000
  • TERRIBLE,
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:26.280
  • BECAUSE IF YOU CAN WRAP
  • 00:16:26.280 --> 00:16:27.210
  • YOURSELF IN GOAT SKIN
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:29.000
  • AND BE MISTAKEN FOR A HUMAN,
  • 00:16:29.000 --> 00:16:30.110
  • YOU'VE GOT ISSUES.
  • 00:16:30.110 --> 00:16:31.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:31.260 --> 00:16:33.080
  • BUT INTO THE ROOM JACOB GOES.
  • 00:16:34.050 --> 00:16:37.050
  • AND THE DECEPTIVE TRICK WORKS.
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:39.030
  • ISAAC LAYS HIS HAND
  • 00:16:39.030 --> 00:16:40.150
  • ON JACOB'S HEAD.
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:41.110
  • AND ISAAC GIVES TO JACOB
  • 00:16:41.110 --> 00:16:43.030
  • THE BLESSING THAT HE INTENDED
  • 00:16:43.030 --> 00:16:44.040
  • TO GIVE TO ESAU.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:45.090
  • NOW HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:16:45.090 --> 00:16:46.120
  • NOT ONLY DID REBEKAH DIVIDE
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:48.170
  • THE AUTHORITY OF HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:16:48.170 --> 00:16:50.120
  • BUT SHE DIVIDED THOSE BOYS.
  • 00:16:50.120 --> 00:16:53.050
  • ESAU AND JACOB STARTED
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:54.140
  • A FAMILY FEUD THAT IS NOW
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:56.020
  • 3.000 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:59.090
  • THE DESCENDANTS OF JACOB
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:00.120
  • ARE LIVING IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:01.210
  • THE NATIONS AROUND ISRAEL THAT
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:03.200
  • ARE TRYING TO WIPE IT OUT ARE
  • 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:05.000
  • THE DESCENDANTS OF ESAU.
  • 00:17:05.000 --> 00:17:07.290
  • IF YOU DON'T THINK LITTLE
  • 00:17:07.290 --> 00:17:09.040
  • THINGS MAKE A LOT OF
  • 00:17:09.040 --> 00:17:10.050
  • DIFFERENCE, VISIT GENESIS 27.
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:14.140
  • DAD MADE A DECISION.
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:15.260
  • MOM WENT AGAINST IT.
  • 00:17:15.260 --> 00:17:17.040
  • THE HOUSE WAS DIVIDED
  • 00:17:17.040 --> 00:17:18.120
  • AND IT'S DIVIDED UNTIL THIS DAY.
  • 00:17:18.170 --> 00:17:21.170
  • ESAU AND JACOB,
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:22.130
  • THEY BURIED THEIR HATCHET
  • 00:17:22.130 --> 00:17:23.240
  • AT THEIR FATHER'S FUNERAL.
  • 00:17:23.240 --> 00:17:24.260
  • BUT THEIR DESCENDANTS DUG IT
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:26.040
  • UP,
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:26.250
  • AND THEY'RE STILL FIGHTING
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:27.170
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:30.270
  • IF YOU DON'T THINK
  • 00:17:30.270 --> 00:17:31.220
  • THE DECISIONS THAT YOU MAKE
  • 00:17:31.220 --> 00:17:32.240
  • IN YOUR LIFE HAVE AN IMPACT,
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:34.170
  • READ WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:35.150
  • IN EXODUS 20.
  • 00:17:35.150 --> 00:17:37.140
  • IT SAYS THAT GOD WILL VISIT
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:39.000
  • THE WICKEDNESS OF A FATHER
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:40.150
  • UPON HIS CHILDREN,
  • 00:17:40.150 --> 00:17:41.230
  • HIS GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:42.230
  • AND HIS GREAT GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:44.050
  • TO THE FOURTH GENERATION.
  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:47.090
  • AND PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:47.240
  • I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:48.220
  • GOD WOULD DO THAT.
  • 00:17:48.220 --> 00:17:49.210
  • HE DIDN'T DO THAT;
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:50.170
  • YOU DID THAT.
  • 00:17:50.170 --> 00:17:52.170
  • HAVE YOU EVER HEARD SOMEONE
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:53.130
  • SAY,
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:53.290
  • "YOU'VE GOT YOUR GRANDFATHER'S
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:54.260
  • TEMPER"?
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:57.210
  • HAVE YOU EVER HEARD SOMEONE
  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:17:58.260
  • COMPARE SOMEONE WHO JUST
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:00.090
  • ENTERED THE FAMILY TO SOMEBODY
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:01.140
  • WHO'S BEEN DEAD A LONG TIME?
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:04.120
  • WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT
  • 00:18:04.120 --> 00:18:05.060
  • THE HATFIELDS AND THE MCCOYS?
  • 00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:07.140
  • THEY DON'T SEND GREETING CARDS
  • 00:18:07.140 --> 00:18:08.160
  • TO EACH OTHER.
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:11.030
  • WHY?
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:13.010
  • BECAUSE THEY ALLOWED DIVISION
  • 00:18:13.010 --> 00:18:14.220
  • TO COME INTO THEIR FAMILY.
  • 00:18:14.220 --> 00:18:16.020
  • AND WHEN YOU GIVE THE DEVIL
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:17.080
  • THIS MUCH ROOM TO DIVIDE
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:18.230
  • SOMETHING,
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:19.080
  • HE'S GOING TO STAY THERE
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:20.150
  • AS LONG AS HE CAN.
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:24.040
  • SO MOM IS THE MULTIPLIER.
  • 00:18:24.040 --> 00:18:25.290
  • SHE EITHER INCREASES
  • 00:18:25.290 --> 00:18:27.160
  • DAD'S AUTHORITY
  • 00:18:27.160 --> 00:18:28.160
  • OR SHE IS THE DIVIDER;
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:29.280
  • SHE DECREASES DAD'S AUTHORITY.
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:32.040
  • WHEN KIDS KNOW THAT MOM
  • 00:18:32.040 --> 00:18:33.210
  • AND DAD ARE ON THE SAME PAGE,
  • 00:18:33.210 --> 00:18:35.200
  • THEY MAY NOT LIKE IT,
  • 00:18:35.200 --> 00:18:37.090
  • BUT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:38.190
  • TO OBEY.
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:40.160
  • BELIEVE ME; IN MY CHILDHOOD,
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:41.270
  • I GOT TOLD A LOT OF THINGS I
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:43.160
  • DID NOT LIKE TO DO.
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:44.270
  • BUT IT DIDN'T MEAN I GOT AWAY
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:46.010
  • WITH NOT DOING IT.
  • 00:18:46.010 --> 00:18:47.000
  • I HAD TO DO IT ANYWAY.
  • 00:18:47.000 --> 00:18:48.130
  • AS PARTNERS,
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.260
  • YOU HAVE EQUAL VOICES.
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:52.290
  • BUT IN YOUR PARTNERSHIP,
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:54.270
  • YOU ONLY NEED ONE VOICE.
  • 00:18:54.270 --> 00:18:57.240
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:18:57.240 --> 00:18:58.130
  • IF YOU ARE DECIDING HOW YOU'RE
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:19:00.080
  • GOING TO APPROACH SOMETHING,
  • 00:19:00.080 --> 00:19:01.150
  • HAVE THAT CONVERSATION BETWEEN
  • 00:19:01.150 --> 00:19:03.000
  • THE HUSBAND AND THE WIFE.
  • 00:19:03.000 --> 00:19:04.100
  • AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND
  • 00:19:04.100 --> 00:19:05.190
  • IN PRIVATE,
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:06.130
  • AND THEN COME OUT
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:07.190
  • AND TELL THE KIDS,
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:08.240
  • THIS IS WHAT WE'RE GOING
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:10.030
  • TO DO.
  • 00:19:10.030 --> 00:19:12.270
  • THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE SAYS:
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:13.280
  • WIVES, SUBMIT TO YOUR OWN
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:16.090
  • HUSBANDS AS UNTO THE LORD.
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:19.260
  • WE READ THAT
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:20.110
  • IN COLOSSIANS 3:18.
  • 00:19:20.110 --> 00:19:23.060
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE MY VERSES
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:23.290
  • THAT I REALLY LIKE PEOPLE
  • 00:19:23.290 --> 00:19:24.210
  • TO REPEAT.
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:25.080
  • SO I'M GOING TO SAY IT ONE
  • 00:19:25.080 --> 00:19:25.280
  • MORE TIME.
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:27.160
  • WIVES,
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:29.030
  • SUBMIT TO YOUR HUSBANDS
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:31.050
  • AS UNTO THE LORD.
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:33.150
  • Y'ALL DIDN'T DO A GOOD JOB
  • 00:19:33.150 --> 00:19:34.060
  • OF REPEATING IT.
  • 00:19:34.060 --> 00:19:35.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:35.130 --> 00:19:36.260
  • AS SOON AS YOU SAY SOMETHING
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:38.190
  • LIKE THAT, THEY GO,
  • 00:19:38.190 --> 00:19:39.140
  • WELL WHAT IF HE'S WRONG?
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:40.280
  • LET ME GIVE YOU A GOOD WORD;
  • 00:19:40.280 --> 00:19:42.010
  • HE'S GOING TO BE.
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:43.270
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:44.210
  • HE'S GOING TO GET IT WRONG.
  • 00:19:44.210 --> 00:19:45.260
  • HE'S NOT A PERFECT GUY.
  • 00:19:45.260 --> 00:19:47.280
  • BUT GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.200
  • IF YOU'RE ONLY SUBMITTING
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:50.250
  • TO WHAT YOU AGREE WITH,
  • 00:19:50.250 --> 00:19:52.050
  • YOU'RE NOT SUBMITTING AT ALL.
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:55.000
  • SUBMISSION IS WHEN YOU DON'T

  • WANT TO DO IT
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:58.030

  • ANYTHING YOU COULD IMAGINE.
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:46.120
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE HIM
  • 00:20:46.120 --> 00:20:47.030
  • THE CHANCE TO DO IT
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:48.070

  • GOD IS A JUST GOD.
  • 00:21:06.150 --> 00:21:07.230
  • IF HE SAID THAT HE WOULD VISIT
  • 00:21:07.230 --> 00:21:09.030
  • WICKEDNESS FOR THREE

  • I ASSURE YOU HE WILL ALSO
  • 00:21:11.090 --> 00:21:12.240
  • VISIT RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR THREE
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:14.220
  • AND FOUR GENERATIONS.
  • 00:21:14.220 --> 00:21:16.170
  • WITHOUT A DOUBT,
  • 00:21:16.170 --> 00:21:17.080
  • EACH AND EVEN INDIVIDUAL HAS
  • 00:21:17.080 --> 00:21:18.180
  • TO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISION
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:19.230
  • TO SERVE THE LORD.
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:20.140
  • BUT THE BLESSINGS OF GOD
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:21.210
  • CAN BE UPON A FAMILY BECAUSE
  • 00:21:21.210 --> 00:21:23.140
  • OF WHAT DESCENDANTS HAVE DONE
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:25.240
  • OR YOUR ANCESTORS HAVE DONE
  • 00:21:25.240 --> 00:21:27.030
  • IN THE PAST.
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:28.130
  • IF YOU DON'T THINK SO,
  • 00:21:28.130 --> 00:21:29.220
  • WHY DID GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN
  • 00:21:29.220 --> 00:21:30.270
  • OF ISRAEL?
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:31.150
  • BECAUSE OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC,
  • 00:21:31.150 --> 00:21:33.040
  • AND -- WHO?
  • 00:21:33.040 --> 00:21:34.020
  • -- JACOB.
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:36.000
  • IN THE HAGEE FAMILY,
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:38.190
  • MY GRANDMOTHER,
  • 00:21:38.190 --> 00:21:39.190
  • IN HER EARLY 20'S,
  • 00:21:39.190 --> 00:21:41.000
  • EARNED A GRADUATE SCHOOL DEGREE
  • 00:21:41.060 --> 00:21:44.060
  • IN THE 1920'S.
  • 00:21:44.060 --> 00:21:46.030
  • NOW TODAY,
  • 00:21:46.030 --> 00:21:46.210
  • TALKING ABOUT A WOMAN WITH A
  • 00:21:46.210 --> 00:21:47.210
  • GRADUATE DEGREE MIGHT NOT SEEM
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:49.160
  • LIKE A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:21:49.160 --> 00:21:50.090
  • BUT I ASSURE YOU,
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:51.040
  • IN THE 1920'S,
  • 00:21:51.040 --> 00:21:52.190
  • ANY WOMAN GOING TO COLLEGE
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:54.130
  • WAS BIG.
  • 00:21:54.130 --> 00:21:55.040
  • ANY WOMAN GOING TO COLLEGE AND
  • 00:21:55.040 --> 00:21:56.160
  • GETTING A GRADUATE DEGREE
  • 00:21:56.160 --> 00:21:57.200
  • WAS HUGE.
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:21:58.120
  • AND THEN SHE TURNED AROUND
  • 00:21:58.120 --> 00:21:59.130
  • AND WAS TEACHING IN THE SEMINARY
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:01.210
  • THAT SHE GRADUATED FROM.
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:03.260
  • THAT SEMINARY EVENTUALLY
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:05.190
  • EVOLVED AND GREW TO BE WHAT IS
  • 00:22:05.190 --> 00:22:07.090
  • NOW SOUTHWESTERN ASSEMBLIES
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:08.180
  • OF GOD UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:10.280
  • WHEN SHE MET MY GRANDFATHER,
  • 00:22:10.280 --> 00:22:13.150
  • HE WAS A PASTOR'S SON.
  • 00:22:13.150 --> 00:22:15.140
  • BUT HE HAD JUST FINISHED YEARS
  • 00:22:15.140 --> 00:22:17.130
  • WORKING ON A SHIP
  • 00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:18.270
  • IN THE MERCHANT MARINES.
  • 00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:20.240
  • NOW THAT'S A LONG STORY HOW HE
  • 00:22:20.240 --> 00:22:22.030
  • GOT THAT DONE,
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:23.040
  • BUT JUST FOR THE SAKE OF TIME,
  • 00:22:23.040 --> 00:22:25.140
  • NEEDLESS TO SAY,
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:26.120
  • WHILE HE WAS ON THAT VESSEL
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:27.220
  • TRAVELING THE WORLD DELIVERING
  • 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:29.010
  • MERCHANDISE,
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:30.060
  • HE WASN'T GOING TO THE FIRST
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:31.120
  • BAPTIST CHURCH IN EVERY PORT
  • 00:22:31.120 --> 00:22:33.010
  • THAT HE HAD COME TO.
  • 00:22:33.030 --> 00:22:36.030
  • BUT HE AND MY GRANDMOTHER MET.
  • 00:22:36.030 --> 00:22:38.100
  • THEY DECIDED TO GET MARRIED.
  • 00:22:38.100 --> 00:22:39.250
  • THEY DECIDED TO START A CHURCH.
  • 00:22:39.250 --> 00:22:41.090
  • YOU'VE HEARD MY FATHER SAY
  • 00:22:41.090 --> 00:22:42.270
  • THAT MY GRANDMOTHER COULD
  • 00:22:42.270 --> 00:22:44.060
  • PREACH BETTER ON ACCIDENT THAN
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:45.250
  • HER HUSBAND COULD ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:22:45.250 --> 00:22:48.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:48.000 --> 00:22:49.080
  • AND WHENEVER MY GRANDMOTHER
  • 00:22:49.120 --> 00:22:52.120
  • WOULD STAND IN THE PULPIT
  • 00:22:52.120 --> 00:22:53.120
  • TO SPEAK,
  • 00:22:53.120 --> 00:22:54.020
  • THERE WOULD NOT BE A SEAT
  • 00:22:54.020 --> 00:22:55.050
  • IN THE HOUSE.
  • 00:22:55.050 --> 00:22:55.270
  • THERE WOULD BE PEOPLE STANDING
  • 00:22:55.270 --> 00:22:56.290
  • IN THE YARD.
  • 00:22:56.290 --> 00:22:58.020
  • THERE WOULD BE PEOPLE
  • 00:22:58.020 --> 00:22:58.230
  • WHO WOULD COME FROM MILES
  • 00:22:58.230 --> 00:23:00.050
  • AND ASK HER TO PREACH
  • 00:23:00.050 --> 00:23:01.080
  • FOR SEVERAL DAYS,
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:02.220
  • BECAUSE THEY ENJOYED WHAT SHE
  • 00:23:02.220 --> 00:23:04.020
  • HAD TO SAY.
  • 00:23:04.020 --> 00:23:06.170
  • MY DAD TOLD ME ONE TIME THAT
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:07.220
  • WHEN MY GRANDFATHER USED
  • 00:23:07.220 --> 00:23:08.280
  • TO SPEAK,
  • 00:23:08.280 --> 00:23:09.160
  • THAT YOU COULD SHOOT A GUN OFF
  • 00:23:09.160 --> 00:23:10.210
  • IN THE CHURCH AND YOU WOULDN'T
  • 00:23:10.210 --> 00:23:11.190
  • HIT NOBODY.
  • 00:23:11.190 --> 00:23:13.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:23:13.080 --> 00:23:14.150
  • AND PEOPLE, BEING PEOPLE,
  • 00:23:15.230 --> 00:23:18.230
  • STARTED TO TALK.
  • 00:23:18.230 --> 00:23:21.000
  • WELL YOU KNOW SISTER VADA,
  • 00:23:21.000 --> 00:23:22.010
  • SHE'S THE ONE THAT'S GOT
  • 00:23:22.010 --> 00:23:23.000
  • THE GIFT.
  • 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:25.010
  • BROTHER BYTHEL,

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:23:27.050 --> 00:23:28.180
  • HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED HOW
  • 00:23:28.180 --> 00:23:30.140
  • CHURCH PEOPLE CAN SPIRITUALIZE
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:32.050
  • DIVISION?
  • 00:23:32.050 --> 00:23:34.170
  • WE'RE PRAYING FOR YOU,
  • 00:23:34.170 --> 00:23:35.090
  • BROTHER; WE'RE PRAYING.
  • 00:23:36.110 --> 00:23:39.110
  • AND MY GRANDMOTHER,
  • 00:23:39.110 --> 00:23:40.050
  • HEARING THESE REPORTS START
  • 00:23:40.050 --> 00:23:42.060
  • TRICKLING IN
  • 00:23:42.060 --> 00:23:42.230
  • THROUGH THE COMMUNITY,
  • 00:23:42.230 --> 00:23:44.210
  • THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE,
  • 00:23:44.210 --> 00:23:45.280
  • WHATEVER SOURCE YOU WANT TO
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:46.230
  • GIVE IT,
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:48.220
  • SEEING HOW IT WAS AFFECTING

  • HER HOUSE,
  • 00:23:50.030 --> 00:23:52.150
  • ONE THURSDAY NIGHT --
  • 00:23:52.150 --> 00:23:53.230
  • BECAUSE THEY USED TO GO
  • 00:23:53.230 --> 00:23:54.160
  • TO CHURCH SUNDAY, TUESDAY,
  • 00:23:54.160 --> 00:23:56.260
  • AND THURSDAY.
  • 00:23:56.260 --> 00:23:57.140
  • FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK
  • 00:23:57.140 --> 00:23:58.080
  • IT'S EXTREME TO COME BACK
  • 00:23:58.080 --> 00:23:59.180
  • AT 6:30,
  • 00:23:59.180 --> 00:24:00.250
  • THERE USED TO BE MORE OF THIS.
  • 00:24:01.200 --> 00:24:04.200
  • ONE THURSDAY NIGHT,
  • 00:24:04.200 --> 00:24:05.180
  • SHE WAS TEACHING.
  • 00:24:05.180 --> 00:24:06.130
  • AND SHE STOOD IN THE PULPIT
  • 00:24:06.130 --> 00:24:07.230
  • IN THE CHURCH THERE JUST OUTSIDE
  • 00:24:07.230 --> 00:24:09.020
  • OF HOUSTON.
  • 00:24:09.020 --> 00:24:10.160
  • AND SHE MADE THIS STATEMENT.
  • 00:24:10.160 --> 00:24:11.230
  • SHE SAID,
  • 00:24:11.230 --> 00:24:12.060
  • "TODAY I AM OFFICIALLY CEASING
  • 00:24:12.110 --> 00:24:15.110
  • MY SPEAKING MINISTRY."
  • 00:24:15.110 --> 00:24:18.090
  • SHE SAID,
  • 00:24:18.090 --> 00:24:18.230
  • "I'LL NOT STAND IN A PULPIT
  • 00:24:18.230 --> 00:24:19.240
  • AGAIN."
  • 00:24:19.240 --> 00:24:21.200
  • SHE SAID,
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:22.050
  • "I'M GOING TO DEVOTE MY LIFE
  • 00:24:22.050 --> 00:24:24.030

  • MY SONS THE WORD OF GOD."
  • 00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:31.070
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:24:31.070 --> 00:24:32.230
  • WHAT GOD INTENDED FOR ME TO HAVE
  • 00:24:32.230 --> 00:24:35.050
  • IN MY MINISTRY,
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:36.150
  • HE WILL GIVE TO ONE OF MY SONS,
  • 00:24:36.150 --> 00:24:38.210
  • AND MULTIPLY IT.
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:42.100
  • NOW IN 1949,
  • 00:24:42.100 --> 00:24:45.070
  • WHEN SHE MADE THIS DECLARATION,
  • 00:24:45.070 --> 00:24:46.250
  • MY DAD WAS NINE YEARS OLD.
  • 00:24:47.180 --> 00:24:50.180

  • HIS OLDER BROTHER,
  • 00:24:51.170 --> 00:24:52.170
  • BECAUSE THAT WAS THE KID
  • 00:24:52.170 --> 00:24:53.240
  • THAT LIKED TO GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:24:53.240 --> 00:24:54.280
  • MY DAD,
  • 00:24:54.280 --> 00:24:55.190
  • HE LIKED TO THROW ROCKS
  • 00:24:55.190 --> 00:24:56.270
  • AT PEOPLE WHO WENT TO CHURCH.
  • 00:24:56.270 --> 00:24:58.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:24:58.160 --> 00:25:00.160
  • AND EVERYBODY SAID, WELL,
  • 00:25:00.160 --> 00:25:03.090
  • GOD'S GOING TO USE THE TALL ONE,
  • 00:25:03.090 --> 00:25:05.210
  • BECAUSE THAT LITTLE ONE,

  • AND IF YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:25:12.090 --> 00:25:15.090
  • THE TESTIMONY OF MY DAD'S LIFE,
  • 00:25:15.090 --> 00:25:17.000
  • HOW HE GAVE HIS HEART TO CHRIST
  • 00:25:17.000 --> 00:25:18.110
  • WHEN HE WAS 17,
  • 00:25:18.110 --> 00:25:19.150
  • HOW JUST A FEW DAYS LATER,
  • 00:25:19.150 --> 00:25:20.230
  • HE CHECKED HIMSELF
  • 00:25:20.230 --> 00:25:21.160
  • INTO A BIBLE SCHOOL --
  • 00:25:21.160 --> 00:25:22.140
  • IT HAPPENED TO BE SOUTHWESTERN,
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:23.150
  • BY THE WAY.
  • 00:25:23.150 --> 00:25:25.130
  • -- HOW HE GRADUATED
  • 00:25:25.130 --> 00:25:26.100
  • AND HE BEGAN PREACHING,
  • 00:25:26.100 --> 00:25:27.190
  • AND THE CONNECTION THAT HE HAD
  • 00:25:27.190 --> 00:25:29.100
  • WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER.
  • 00:25:29.100 --> 00:25:30.140
  • YOU SEE THE FULFILLMENT OF
  • 00:25:30.140 --> 00:25:31.240
  • WHAT SHE SAID THAT NIGHT
  • 00:25:31.240 --> 00:25:33.070
  • WHEN SHE SAID,
  • 00:25:33.070 --> 00:25:33.290
  • "I AM NOT GOING TO DO THIS."
  • 00:25:33.290 --> 00:25:36.220
  • WHY?
  • 00:25:36.220 --> 00:25:37.150
  • NOT BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:25:37.150 --> 00:25:39.000
  • TO SPEAK.
  • 00:25:39.000 --> 00:25:39.200
  • SHE WAS BORN TO SPEAK.
  • 00:25:40.200 --> 00:25:43.200
  • SHE DID IT BECAUSE SHE WANTED
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:45.070
  • UNITY IN HER FAMILY.
  • 00:25:45.270 --> 00:25:48.270
  • SHE KNEW THAT IF SHE STAYED
  • 00:25:48.270 --> 00:25:50.010
  • AFTER IT,
  • 00:25:50.010 --> 00:25:50.190
  • SHE WAS GOING TO DRIVE A WEDGE
  • 00:25:50.190 --> 00:25:52.040
  • BETWEEN HER AND HER HUSBAND.
  • 00:25:52.040 --> 00:25:53.240
  • AND RATHER THAN DO THAT,
  • 00:25:53.240 --> 00:25:55.020
  • SHE UNITED THE FAMILY.
  • 00:25:55.020 --> 00:25:56.190
  • AND GOD COMMANDED A BLESSING.
  • 00:25:58.140 --> 00:26:01.160
  • JOHN HAGEE DID NOT GET WHAT HE
  • 00:26:01.160 --> 00:26:03.110
  • GOT JUST BECAUSE HE WAS IN THE
  • 00:26:03.110 --> 00:26:04.240
  • RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.
  • 00:26:04.240 --> 00:26:06.160
  • WHEN HIS MOTHER LAID DOWN
  • 00:26:06.160 --> 00:26:08.000
  • HER LIFE AS A SEED,
  • 00:26:08.000 --> 00:26:09.150
  • IT WAS SOWED INTO HIM.
  • 00:26:09.150 --> 00:26:11.080
  • AND GOD LOOKED AT HIM
  • 00:26:11.080 --> 00:26:12.090
  • AND SAID, BECAUSE OF HER,
  • 00:26:12.090 --> 00:26:14.000
  • THIS IS WHAT I'M GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:26:14.000 --> 00:26:15.090
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:26:15.090 --> 00:26:18.040
  • DON'T THINK THAT GOD WON'T GO
  • 00:26:18.040 --> 00:26:19.250
  • OUT OF HIS WAY TO FULFILL
  • 00:26:20.020 --> 00:26:23.020
  • HIS PROMISE.
