  • EXPLAIN IT, SO LET'S START WITH KIND OF
  • 00:02:40.060 --> 00:02:42.250
  • STARTING TO UNPACK.
  • 00:02:42.270 --> 00:02:44.290
  • WHAT DO WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY LIVING A LIFE IN A
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:46.260
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY WAY?
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:49.100
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN PRACTICALITY?
  • 00:02:49.120 --> 00:02:52.070
  • - LEON FONTAINE: WHEN YOU ASK SOMEBODY,
  • 00:02:52.090 --> 00:02:54.270
  • WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:57.000
  • IT'S AN INTERESTING QUESTION.
  • 00:02:57.020 --> 00:02:59.060
  • I WAS RAISED IN A WONDERFUL CHRISTIAN HOME,
  • 00:02:59.080 --> 00:03:01.250
  • PARENTS BOTH PASTORS, IN A SMALL TOWN WHERE I WAS
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:06.050
  • BEATEN UP REGULARLY AND RIDICULED FOR BEING A
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:08.040
  • CHRISTIAN, AND WITHOUT REALIZING IT DEVELOPED
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:10.140
  • THIS CHRISTIANS ARE JUST LIKE KIND OF THE LOWEST,
  • 00:03:10.160 --> 00:03:13.070
  • LITTLE SCARED MICE RUNNING AROUND.
  • 00:03:13.090 --> 00:03:15.110
  • AND THEN AS I BEGAN TO GET INTO GOD'S WORD, AND
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:18.040
  • MY HEROES WERE LIKE DAVID RUNNING THROUGH A TROOP
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:21.150
  • OVER A WALL.
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:23.210
  • MY HEROES ARE MOSES.
  • 00:03:23.230 --> 00:03:26.050
  • I HAVE A JEWISH FRIEND, SANDY CULKIN, WHO SAYS
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:28.170
  • ANYBODY CAN LEAD TWO MILLION JEWS ANYWHERE
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:30.290
  • IS A GENIUS.
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:32.110
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:34.130
  • I MEAN, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE INCREDIBLE HEROES,
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:36.070
  • AND THEN YOU COME TO THE NEW TESTAMENT AND YOU SEE
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:38.010
  • MEN THAT WERE GOING TO DIE AND THEY KNEW IT FOR
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:39.200
  • THE CAUSE OF CHRIST.
  • 00:03:39.220 --> 00:03:41.190
  • AND THEN WE COME TO TODAY.
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:43.140
  • WE KIND OF GO, WHAT IS GOING ON?
  • 00:03:43.160 --> 00:03:45.090
  • AND I KNEW THAT I WANTED TO BE A CHRISTIAN, BUT I
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:47.220
  • WANTED TO BE LIKE THE NAVY SEAL WHEN IT CAME TO
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:50.280
  • THE BATTLE.
  • 00:03:51.000 --> 00:03:52.260
  • AND I WANTED TO BE THE MOST AMAZING LOVER WHEN
  • 00:03:52.280 --> 00:03:54.260
  • IT COME TO MY WIFE.
  • 00:03:54.280 --> 00:03:56.170
  • I WANTED TO HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES WHEN I LOOKED AT
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:58.200
  • MY KIDS AND MY GRAND BABIES, BUT I WANTED
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:00.240
  • TO BE LIKE -- ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES WAS --
  • 00:04:00.260 --> 00:04:03.210
  • OH, I FORGET THAT MEL GIBSON ONE WHERE IT TALK
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:05.110
  • ABOUT THE PATRIOT.
  • 00:04:05.130 --> 00:04:07.020
  • - MATT CROUCH: BRAVEHEART.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:08.230
  • - THE PATRIOT WHERE HE'S THE DAD OF ALL THESE
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:10.140
  • KIDS, AND YOU DON'T MESS WITH THIS GUY.
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:12.030
  • HE WAS SO IN LOVE WITH HIS KIDS, BUT HE WAS THE
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:14.000
  • MOST NOT WICKED BUT THE MOST POWERFUL.
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:16.060
  • WHEN I LOOK AT A CHRISTIAN TODAY, I DON'T
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:19.030
  • WANT TO BE THIS MEEK LITTLE PATHETIC THING
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:21.150
  • RUNNING AROUND.
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:23.050
  • [NASALLY VOICE] I'M A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:24.280
  • WOULD YOU COME TO CHURCH WITH ME?
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:26.160
  • BUT WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS, I DON'T LOOK AT A BABY IN
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:28.030
  • A MANGER.
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:29.290
  • WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS I DON'T LOOK AT A GUY IN A
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:31.190
  • DRESS IN FLIP-FLOPS AND LONG, BEAUTIFUL, BROWN
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:32.070
  • CURLY HAIR.
  • 00:04:32.090 --> 00:04:34.280
  • WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS, IT'S REVELATION 1 AND 2,
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:37.130
  • THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
  • 00:04:37.150 --> 00:04:39.070
  • AND WE ARE HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:41.010
  • HE'S THE FIRSTBORN.
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:42.170
  • WE'RE THE FAMILY, SO WE LITERALLY OUGHT TO BE ON
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:44.230
  • THIS PLANET EQUIPPING AND DISCIPLING NATIONS IN
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:46.230
  • EVERY AREA.
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:49.020
  • IT'S TO BE SPIRITUALLY ALIVE WITH HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:52.150
  • FLOWING THROUGH US UNTIL WE ARE, SORRY, SUPER PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:52.170 --> 00:04:56.080
  • AND THEN AT THE SAME TIME THAT THERE IS THIS
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:04:59.010
  • CONTEMPORARY ABILITY THAT WE RESPECT AND HONOR AND
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:02.220
  • CAN FLOW IN A CULTURE THAT IS ANTI US, BUT WE
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:05.190
  • CAN MOVE RIGHT INTO THAT CULTURE LIKE JESUS DID
  • 00:05:05.210 --> 00:05:08.290
  • AND BE LIGHT AND BE SALT.
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:12.000
  • TO ME, IT IS THE WAY CHRISTIANITY IS AND
  • 00:05:12.020 --> 00:05:14.140
  • SHOULD BE.
  • 00:05:14.160 --> 00:05:16.170
  • IT'S THE WAY JESUS WAS.
  • 00:05:16.190 --> 00:05:18.060
  • IT'S THE WAY THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS.
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:19.260
  • IT'S THE WAY I WANT TO BE.
  • 00:05:19.280 --> 00:05:21.110
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:31.120
  • - LEON FONTAINE: WHEN I LOOK AT BEING SPIRIT
  • 00:05:31.140 --> 00:05:33.250
  • CONTEMPORARY WHICH IS THE ABILITY TO IMPACT
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.270
  • NATIONS, THE ABILITY TO IMPACT THE BUSINESS
  • 00:05:35.290 --> 00:05:37.290
  • WORLD, THE ARTS, ET CETERA, IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:40.250
  • WHAT JESUS SAYS, AND THAT IS THAT WE ARE TO
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:42.260
  • DISCIPLE NATIONS.
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:45.280
  • CHRISTIANS DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER WHEN WE JUST
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:48.060
  • SCREAM, OBEY THE BIBLE.
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:50.140
  • CHRISTIANS HAVE AN ANSWER WHEN WE SHOW THEM WHAT IT
  • 00:05:50.160 --> 00:05:52.220
  • IS LIKE TO BE A PRIME MINISTER, A PRESIDENT WHO
  • 00:05:52.240 --> 00:05:55.130
  • CAN HAVE POWER BUT NOT BE TAKEN IN BY IT.
  • 00:05:55.150 --> 00:05:58.140
  • WHEN WE LEARN TO LIVE OUT THIS INCREDIBLE,
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:06:01.260
  • SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE, THEN THE WORLD IS ATTRACTED TO US.
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:05.270
  • AND SO ONE OF MY PET PEEVES IS PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:08.190
  • CONTINUALLY PREACH ON THE END TIMES, THAT JESUS IS
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:11.080
  • COMING BACK.
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:14.100
  • AND I DON'T KNOW IF THEY MEAN TO, BUT WHAT IT
  • 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:18.230
  • MEANS TO THE EMERGING GENERATION IS THAT THE
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:20.130
  • WORLD IS GETTING SO BAD.
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:21.290
  • WE'VE GOT NUCLEAR BOMBS.
  • 00:06:22.010 --> 00:06:23.130
  • WE'VE GOT THE WATER BEING DESTROYED.
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:24.270
  • THERE'S HOLES IN THE OZONE LAYER.
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:26.130
  • WE'VE GOT MELTING ICE CAPS.
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:28.020
  • JESUS, COME RESCUE US FROM THIS WORLD OF WOE
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:30.090
  • AND TAKE US AS THOUGH JESUS IS COMING BACK IS
  • 00:06:30.110 --> 00:06:32.190
  • THE ANSWER FOR A PATHETICALLY WIMPY
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:34.200
  • REMNANT CHURCH, AND WE'VE TAKEN THESE VERSES ALL
  • 00:06:34.220 --> 00:06:37.020
  • OUT OF CONTEXT.
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:38.280
  • IF WE THE CHURCH ARE TO BE WITHOUT SPOT OR
  • 00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:41.190
  • WRINKLE, IF WE ARE THE VICTORIOUS CHURCH THEN WE
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:43.280
  • ARE NOT JUST TO BE PREACHING THE GOSPEL
  • 00:06:44.000 --> 00:06:45.240
  • IN NATIONS.
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:47.230
  • WE ARE TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF NATIONS, AND THE ONLY
  • 00:06:47.250 --> 00:06:50.030
  • WAY TO DO THAT IS IF IN ALL OF THESE AREAS OF
  • 00:06:50.050 --> 00:06:52.240
  • SOCIETY MEN AND WOMEN RISE UP AND THE WORLD IS
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:56.040
  • IN AWE OF THEM, RESPECTS THEM.
  • 00:06:56.060 --> 00:06:59.100
  • THERE ARE MANY PREACHERS WHO BELIEVE THAT THEIR
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:02.240
  • CHURCHES GOT THE PRESENCE OF GOD SO STRONG IN IT
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:04.240
  • THAT IT REPELS PEOPLE, BUT JESUS HAD THE
  • 00:07:04.260 --> 00:07:07.060
  • PRESENCE OF GOD WITHOUT MEASURE, AND IT SAYS THAT
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:09.220
  • THE DRUNKS, THE ADULTERERS, THE THIEVES,
  • 00:07:09.240 --> 00:07:12.160
  • THE LIARS THEY WERE ATTRACTED TO THIS MAN,
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:15.220
  • AND WHEN I LOOK AHEAD AND I SEE WHAT I BELIEVE
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:20.020
  • JESUS IS LOOKING FOR, IT WOULD BE US IN EVERY AREA
  • 00:07:20.040 --> 00:07:23.150
  • OF SOCIETY BEING THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL, BEING
  • 00:07:23.170 --> 00:07:27.090
  • ABOVE AND NOT BENEATH, THAT EVERY WEAPON FORMED
  • 00:07:27.110 --> 00:07:30.230
  • AGAINST US DOES NOT PROSPER.
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:32.200
  • PAUL PRAYED THAT WICKED AND EVIL MEN WOULDN'T BE
  • 00:07:32.220 --> 00:07:34.270
  • PROSPER AGAINST HIM BECAUSE ALL MEN DON'T
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:37.080
  • HAVE FAITH, SO IN A WORLD FILLED WITH OPPOSITION,
  • 00:07:37.100 --> 00:07:39.140
  • THAT WHEN WE OPEN OUR MOUTH EVEN IN DEBATES
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:41.220
  • THAT ARE NECESSARY HE FILLS IT, THAT THE
  • 00:07:41.240 --> 00:07:44.240
  • BRILLIANCE, THE POWER, THE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:47.160
  • GIFTEDNESS THAT IS ON THE EVERY -- NOT JUST ON THE
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:50.210
  • PASTORS AND THE PREACHERS AND THE TV EVANGELISTS,
  • 00:07:50.230 --> 00:07:53.040
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO SEE BUSINESSMEN RISE UP WHO
  • 00:07:53.060 --> 00:07:56.060
  • ARE GOING TO KNOW THE WORD AS GOOD AS PASTORS.
  • 00:07:56.080 --> 00:07:58.010
  • WE'RE GOING TO SEE PEOPLE RISE UP IN THE ARTS THAT

  • 00:25:06.220 --> 00:25:08.200
  • OR THE BUSINESS PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCH WHO WILL SAY
  • 00:25:08.220 --> 00:25:11.190
  • THAT THEY CAME BANKRUPT AND BARELY GETTING BY,
  • 00:25:11.210 --> 00:25:14.240
  • STRESSED OUT WITH THEIR BUSINESSES, AND TODAY ARE
  • 00:25:14.260 --> 00:25:17.080
  • MULTIMILLIONAIRES AND LOVE TO GIVE AND ARE
  • 00:25:17.100 --> 00:25:20.240
  • PUTTING TOGETHER PEOPLE AND SYSTEMS AND STRUCTURES.
  • 00:25:20.260 --> 00:25:24.080
  • WHEN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THE POWER, IT SAYS
  • 00:25:24.100 --> 00:25:27.150
  • "AND YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER AFTER THE HOLY
  • 00:25:27.170 --> 00:25:29.250
  • SPIRIT IS COME UPON YOU."
  • 00:25:29.270 --> 00:25:31.170
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT WORD AND WHERE IT'S USED
  • 00:25:31.190 --> 00:25:33.200
  • AND WHAT IT MEANS, IT LITERALLY MEANS AN
  • 00:25:33.220 --> 00:25:35.200
  • INHERENT POWER THAT IS WITHIN YOU THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:25:35.220 --> 00:25:38.020
  • RELEASE AND USE.
  • 00:25:38.040 --> 00:25:39.160
  • IT IS A POWER TO BE MORALLY STRONG.
  • 00:25:39.180 --> 00:25:41.270
  • IT IS A POWER TO HANDLE WEALTH AND FINANCES.
  • 00:25:41.290 --> 00:25:44.190
  • IT IS A POWER TO HANDLE GREAT INFLUENCE.
  • 00:25:44.210 --> 00:25:48.030
  • A POWER TO HANDLE LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHEN
  • 00:25:48.050 --> 00:25:50.260
  • YOU GO THROUGH IT.
  • 00:25:50.280 --> 00:25:52.050
  • IT'S INTERESTING HOW THE STRONG'S LAYS IT OUT.
  • 00:25:52.070 --> 00:25:54.170
  • THIS POWER ISN'T TO BE A BETTER PASTOR.
  • 00:25:54.190 --> 00:25:57.140
  • THIS POWER IS FOR THE LEADERS.
  • 00:25:57.160 --> 00:25:59.230
  • SO IN OUR CHURCH THEY'VE ALL EMBRACED THAT,
  • 00:25:59.250 --> 00:26:02.100
  • WHETHER IT'S TEACHER, THERE'S A TEACHER, A
  • 00:26:02.120 --> 00:26:04.290
  • PROFESSOR WHO GOT ME INTO TEACHING LEADERSHIP IN
  • 00:26:05.010 --> 00:26:08.160
  • THE UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA AND SPEND THE
  • 00:26:08.180 --> 00:26:11.250
  • AFTERNOON WITH THE TOP PEOPLE WHO BEGAN TO ASK
  • 00:26:11.270 --> 00:26:14.110
  • ME QUESTIONS AND THEN QUESTIONS ABOUT GOD, AND
  • 00:26:14.130 --> 00:26:17.030
  • I SAID AM I ALLOWED TO ANSWER THESE?
  • 00:26:17.050 --> 00:26:18.240
  • WE HAD THIS AMAZING TIME BECAUSE HE'S SO RESPECTED
  • 00:26:18.260 --> 00:26:22.000
  • AT THE TOP, TRAVELS THE WORLD AS A PROFESSOR AND
  • 00:26:22.020 --> 00:26:24.260
  • EVERYONE KNOWS HE'S A MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:26:24.280 --> 00:26:26.170
  • SO IN EACH OF THEIR AREAS, THE MIRACULOUS
  • 00:26:26.190 --> 00:26:30.120
  • COMES IN WHETHER IT'S THE HEALING OF A CHILD IN THE
  • 00:26:30.140 --> 00:26:32.190
  • WORST CRISIS A MOM COULD EVER HANDLE, OR WHETHER
  • 00:26:32.210 --> 00:26:35.010
  • IT'S A BUSINESS MAN TRYING TO THINK OF A WAY
  • 00:26:35.030 --> 00:26:37.240
  • TO GET HOLD OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IS TO MAKE
  • 00:26:37.260 --> 00:26:39.210
  • THIS DEAL GO, OR WHETHER IT'S SITTING IN A BOARD
  • 00:26:39.230 --> 00:26:41.260
  • ROOM TRYING TO CONVINCE THE OTHER SIDE TO SELL
  • 00:26:41.280 --> 00:26:44.020
  • YOU THE PROPERTY AND THE LANDS YOU SO DESPERATELY
  • 00:26:44.040 --> 00:26:46.180
  • NEED, AND HE GUIDES YOU WITH WHAT TO SAY THAT
  • 00:26:46.200 --> 00:26:49.100
  • YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE WITHOUT THAT
  • 00:26:49.120 --> 00:26:51.110
  • WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:26:51.130 --> 00:26:52.230
  • SO IN OUR CHURCH, WHAT'S EXCITING IS EVERY SUNDAY
  • 00:26:52.250 --> 00:26:55.290
  • AND THE FIVE OR SIX SITES OF CHURCH THAT WE DO,
  • 00:26:56.010 --> 00:26:58.240
  • THEY READ OFF A LIST OF THE MIRACLES THAT
  • 00:26:58.260 --> 00:27:01.100
  • TOOK PLACE THAT WEEK.
  • 00:27:01.120 --> 00:27:02.230
  • PEOPLE JUST SEND THEM IN, DROP THEM OFF IN PIECES
  • 00:27:02.250 --> 00:27:04.220
  • OF PAPER, EMAIL THEM TO US AND THE LEADER WILL
  • 00:27:04.240 --> 00:27:07.040
  • WELCOME EVERYBODY AND AT SOME POINT IN THE SERVICE
  • 00:27:07.060 --> 00:27:09.120
  • THANK GOD FOR THE MIRACLES THAT
  • 00:27:09.140 --> 00:27:11.020
  • TOOK PLACE THIS WEEK.
  • 00:27:11.040 --> 00:27:12.130
  • IN 22 YEARS OF PASTORING SPRINGS CHURCH, WE HAVE
  • 00:27:12.150 --> 00:27:15.180
  • NOT HAD A SUNDAY THAT WE LITERALLY HAD TO TAKE THE
  • 00:27:15.200 --> 00:27:18.120
  • LIST AND PARE IT DOWN SO WE DON'T TAKE TOO MUCH
  • 00:27:18.140 --> 00:27:20.200
  • TIME AND JUST SHARE JUST THE FIVE TO SEVEN
  • 00:27:20.220 --> 00:27:23.000
  • MIRACLES AND IN ALL OF THOSE MIRACLES,
  • 00:27:23.020 --> 00:27:25.140
  • NEVER HAVE I PRAYED FOR ANY OF THEM.
  • 00:27:25.160 --> 00:27:28.070
  • THAT'S WHAT EXCITES ME.
  • 00:27:28.090 --> 00:27:30.190
  • I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM
  • 00:27:32.000 --> 00:27:34.040
  • WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
  • 00:27:34.060 --> 00:27:36.120
  • MATT CROUCH: WHAT IS THE BIGGEST, LET'S SAY, HURDLE
  • 00:27:38.030 --> 00:27:40.170
  • THAT YOU HAVE FOUND OF PEOPLE RECEIVING THIS
  • 00:27:40.190 --> 00:27:43.050
  • ABILITY AND THIS-- NOT NEW BUT THIS TEACHING.
  • 00:27:43.070 --> 00:27:48.190
  • - I BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU HEAR TRUTH THAT YOU
  • 00:27:48.210 --> 00:27:52.100
  • DON'T PUT INTO PRACTICE IT CREATES
  • 00:27:52.120 --> 00:27:54.190
  • DOUBT AND UNBELIEF.
  • 00:27:54.210 --> 00:27:57.080
  • AND THIS IS WHERE WE HAVE THE FATTEST LITTLE BABY
  • 00:27:57.100 --> 00:27:59.220
  • CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE IN OUR CHURCHES WITH THE
  • 00:27:59.240 --> 00:28:01.220
  • GREATEST TEACHERS THAT EVER WALKED THE PLANET.
  • 00:28:01.240 --> 00:28:03.250
  • I MEAN, LOOK AT OUR TV, IT'S FILLED WITH
  • 00:28:03.270 --> 00:28:05.240
  • INCREDIBLE TEACHING, BUT FOR SOME REASON PEOPLE
  • 00:28:05.260 --> 00:28:09.000
  • AREN'T EMBRACING IT, AND SO ONE OF THE KEYS, AND
  • 00:28:09.020 --> 00:28:12.270
  • THERE'S SO MANY WE COVER IN THE BOOK, BUT ONE OF
  • 00:28:12.290 --> 00:28:14.150
  • THE KEYS THAT CHRISTIANS NEED TO HEAR IS THAT IF
  • 00:28:14.170 --> 00:28:17.090
  • YOU DON'T PRACTICE PUTTING ON, PUTTING OFF,
  • 00:28:17.110 --> 00:28:21.120
  • THAT YOU WILL BE A BELIEVER FILLED WITH
  • 00:28:21.140 --> 00:28:24.110
  • DOUBT TO ANY OF YOUR ABILITIES.
  • 00:28:24.130 --> 00:28:26.250
  • AND SO AS A PARAMEDIC, WHEN I BEGAN TO SEE THE
  • 00:28:26.270 --> 00:28:29.080
  • HURT AND THE HEARTACHE, IT'S LIKE THIS LITTLE
  • 00:28:29.100 --> 00:28:33.040
  • WONDERFUL 19 YEAR OLD CHRISTIAN BOY, IT'S LIKE
  • 00:28:33.060 --> 00:28:35.260
  • THE INSULATION CAME OFF MY HEART WHEN I WATCHED
  • 00:28:35.280 --> 00:28:38.160
  • KIDS SAY GOODBYE TO A MOM AND I HAD TO BE THERE TO
  • 00:28:38.180 --> 00:28:41.160
  • WRAP HER BODY. IT WAS PART OF MY JOB.
  • 00:28:41.180 --> 00:28:43.240
  • OR AT ACCIDENT SCENES TELLING THE MOM I CAN'T
  • 00:28:43.260 --> 00:28:46.100
  • EVEN WORK ON YOUR CHILD, HE'S OBVIOUSLY GONE.
  • 00:28:46.120 --> 00:28:48.290
  • IT JUST RIPS THE HEART.
  • 00:28:49.010 --> 00:28:52.160
  • SO I LIKE STAYING UN-INSULATED WITH MY HEART.
  • 00:28:52.180 --> 00:28:59.230
  • THE WIRES THAT WE HAVE RUNNING AROUND THE STUDIO
  • 00:28:59.250 --> 00:29:02.060
  • HERE, IF YOU BITE IT, IT'S NOT GONNA DO
  • 00:29:02.080 --> 00:29:04.070
  • ANYTHING TO YOU.
  • 00:29:04.090 --> 00:29:05.110
  • BUT YOU PEAL THAT RUBBER OFF AND GET THE
  • 00:29:05.130 --> 00:29:06.260
  • INSULATION OFF THAT WIRE AND YOU GET DOWN TO THAT
  • 00:29:06.280 --> 00:29:08.290
  • COPPER OR THAT WIRE, YOU'LL GET THE SHOCK OF
  • 00:29:09.010 --> 00:29:10.210
  • YOUR LIFE AT THE POWER THAT'S
  • 00:29:10.230 --> 00:29:12.070
  • RUNNING THROUGH THERE.
  • 00:29:12.090 --> 00:29:13.160
  • IT'S LIKE THE HEART OF A HUMAN BEING WHICH THE
  • 00:29:13.180 --> 00:29:15.020
  • BIBLE SAYS RELEASES ALL THE FORCES OF LIFE,
  • 00:29:15.040 --> 00:29:18.020
  • HEALING AND PROSPERITY AND BLESSING AND PEACE
  • 00:29:18.040 --> 00:29:20.120
  • AND JOY, IT'S LIKE IT'S JUST INSULATED WITH A
  • 00:29:20.140 --> 00:29:23.000
  • WHOLE BUNCH OF RELIGIOUS DATA, AND WHERE WE HAVE
  • 00:29:23.020 --> 00:29:26.040
  • ALL THIS STUFF, IT SAYS THE POWER OF GOD IS OF
  • 00:29:26.060 --> 00:29:29.010
  • NO EFFECT BECAUSE OF OUR JUST TRADITIONS.
  • 00:29:29.030 --> 00:29:33.130
  • REGARDLESS OF WHAT DENOMINATION WE ARE,
  • 00:29:33.150 --> 00:29:35.240
  • WE'VE BECOME TRADITIONAL, WE HAVE ANSWERS, WE ARGUE
  • 00:29:35.260 --> 00:29:38.010
  • WITH THE BAPTISTS AND PENTECOSTALS AND
  • 00:29:38.030 --> 00:29:39.280
  • THAT'S THE WAY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE.
  • 00:29:40.000 --> 00:29:42.010
  • FOR ME, I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF SEVEN YEARS AS
  • 00:29:42.030 --> 00:29:45.130
  • A PASTOR I HAD TO SUPPORT MYSELF OF WALKING INTO,
  • 00:29:45.150 --> 00:29:48.090
  • I WORKED THE O.R.'S, THE RESUS ROOMS, THE DITCHES.
  • 00:29:48.110 --> 00:29:51.090
  • THEN WHEN I WAS A PASTOR, I WENT INTO BOARD ROOMS
  • 00:29:51.110 --> 00:29:53.230
  • WITH MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR DEALS, AND HOW DO YOU
  • 00:29:53.250 --> 00:29:55.280
  • HANDLE HUNDREDS OF STAFF AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:29:56.000 --> 00:29:59.030
  • IN VOLUNTEER STRUCTURES, AND I FOUND THAT THE
  • 00:29:59.050 --> 00:30:01.180
  • POWER OF GOD WAS THERE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:30:01.200 --> 00:30:05.040
  • WE THINK THAT POWER WAS TO SPEAK IN TONGUES OR WE
  • 00:30:05.060 --> 00:30:08.020
  • THINK THAT POWER WAS TO HEAL A FEW SICK PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:08.040 --> 00:30:11.080
  • IF YOU GO TO THAT WORD IN THE STRONG'S, IT WILL GO
  • 00:30:11.100 --> 00:30:14.070
  • A TO F, AND IT WILL SAY HERE'S WHAT THIS POWER
  • 00:30:14.090 --> 00:30:16.150
  • WILL DO IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:30:16.170 --> 00:30:18.070
  • AND THE FIRST THING IT SAYS IS IT IS AN INHERENT
  • 00:30:18.090 --> 00:30:20.100
  • POWER THAT IS WITHIN YOU THAT LITERALLY IS YOURS
  • 00:30:20.120 --> 00:30:22.140
  • TO RELEASE. THAT'S THE FIRST DEFINITION.
  • 00:30:22.160 --> 00:30:24.160
  • SECOND THING IT SAYS IS THIS POWER IS A POWER
  • 00:30:24.180 --> 00:30:26.250
  • GIVEN TO YOU TO LIVE MORALLY EXCELLENT.
  • 00:30:26.270 --> 00:30:30.040
  • THIS IS A POWER GIVEN TO YOU IT SAYS TO HANDLE
  • 00:30:30.060 --> 00:30:32.200
  • WEALTH AND FINANCES.
  • 00:30:32.220 --> 00:30:34.140
  • FOR PEOPLE TO SAY CHRISTIANS CAN'T HANDLE
  • 00:30:34.160 --> 00:30:36.000
  • WEALTH, NO, NO, NO THIS POWER THAT IS GIVEN TO US
  • 00:30:36.020 --> 00:30:38.130
  • THROUGH HOLY SPIRIT, IT SAYS IT IS GIVEN TO US TO
  • 00:30:38.150 --> 00:30:40.260
  • HANDLE ARMIES AND BIG NUMBERS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:40.280 --> 00:30:43.280
  • IT'S GIVEN-- IT BEGINS TO LIST ALL OF THE THINGS,
  • 00:30:44.000 --> 00:30:47.130
  • NOT THAT PASTORS, WELL PASTORS DEAL WITH IT BUT
  • 00:30:47.150 --> 00:30:49.280
  • THAT A BUSINESSMAN WOULD DEAL WITH, THAT A MOM
  • 00:30:50.000 --> 00:30:52.140
  • WOULD DEAL WITH, AND SO AS I BEGAN TO TEACH OUR
  • 00:30:52.160 --> 00:30:55.210
  • CHURCH, THEY BEGAN TO HAVE A SENSE OF THE
  • 00:30:55.230 --> 00:30:58.030
  • TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
  • 00:30:58.050 --> 00:31:00.120
  • WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST AND YOU
  • 00:31:00.140 --> 00:31:02.170
  • BECOME ALIVE WITH HIS PRESENCE, HIS POWER, HIS
  • 00:31:02.190 --> 00:31:05.030
  • PEACE, HIS JOY, HIS HEALING, THE GIFTS OF THE
  • 00:31:05.050 --> 00:31:07.230
  • SPIRIT READY TO FLOW OUT OF YOU INTO OTHER
  • 00:31:07.250 --> 00:31:09.190
  • PEOPLE'S LIVES, YOU BETTER LEARN HOW TO
  • 00:31:09.210 --> 00:31:12.010
  • OPERATE THIS THING. YOU'RE DIFFERENT.
  • 00:31:12.030 --> 00:31:14.120
  • SO IT'S NOT PUTTING OFF THE OLD NATURE, I JUST
  • 00:31:14.140 --> 00:31:16.170
  • NEED TO LEARN A NEW, I NEED A NEW DOWNLOAD OF
  • 00:31:16.190 --> 00:31:19.010
  • SOFTWARE TO MY HARDWARE.
  • 00:31:19.030 --> 00:31:20.290
  • WHEN WE GIVE OUR LIVES TO JESUS, IT'S NOT HIM
  • 00:31:21.010 --> 00:31:24.070
  • MAKING BAD PEOPLE GOOD.
  • 00:31:24.090 --> 00:31:26.240
  • IT'S HIM MAKING DEAD PEOPLE ALIVE.
  • 00:31:26.260 --> 00:31:29.280
  • AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THAT, YOU COME
  • 00:31:30.000 --> 00:31:32.060
  • ALIVE WITH THE VERY PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:31:32.080 --> 00:31:34.030
  • WE NEED TO LITERALLY GO BACK TO THE NEW COVENANT
  • 00:31:34.050 --> 00:31:37.090
  • AND WE NEED TO EMBRACE AND PUT IT ON.
  • 00:31:37.110 --> 00:31:40.020
  • THIS IS WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:31:40.040 --> 00:31:41.090
  • AND HOW DO YOU PUT IT ON?
  • 00:31:41.110 --> 00:31:42.250
  • EVERY TIME YOU READ A VERSE, THIS IS WHO YOU
  • 00:31:42.270 --> 00:31:44.270
  • ARE, YOU GO I RECEIVE THAT BECAUSE IF
  • 00:31:44.290 --> 00:31:47.030
  • YOU DON'T MIX FAITH WITH WHAT YOU READ,
  • 00:31:47.050 --> 00:31:50.110
  • IT PROFITS YOU NOTHING.
  • 00:31:50.130 --> 00:31:52.040
  • YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:31:53.100 --> 00:31:55.120
  • BUT IF THE SALT HAS BECOME TASTELESS, HOW CAN
  • 00:31:55.140 --> 00:31:57.250
  • IT BE MADE SALTY AGAIN?
  • 00:31:57.270 --> 00:31:59.280
  • IT IS NO LONGER GOOD FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT TO BE
  • 00:32:00.020 --> 00:32:03.000
  • THROWN OUT AND TRAMPLED UNDER FOOT BY MEN.
  • 00:32:03.020 --> 00:32:06.060
  • YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:32:06.080 --> 00:32:08.090
  • A CITY SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN.
  • 00:32:08.110 --> 00:32:11.130
  • WHEN WE LOOK AT BELIEVERS BEING A LIGHT,
  • 00:32:13.120 --> 00:32:17.010
  • BEING SALT, WE'VE GOT TO CHANGE THE WAY
  • 00:32:17.030 --> 00:32:21.060
  • CHURCH IS DONE.
  • 00:32:21.080 --> 00:32:22.230
  • WE'VE GOT TO BE-- WE'VE GOT TO SHOW THEM THAT
  • 00:32:22.250 --> 00:32:25.110
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS WITHIN THEM AND THAT THEY DON'T
  • 00:32:25.130 --> 00:32:28.010
  • HAVE TO PRAY FOR PEACE.
  • 00:32:28.030 --> 00:32:29.160
  • PEACE IS SOMETHING THEY ALREADY HAVE.
  • 00:32:29.180 --> 00:32:31.190
  • THEY MUST LEARN TO ACCESS IT.
  • 00:32:31.210 --> 00:32:33.150
  • THEY DON'T HAVE TO PRAY FOR JOY.
  • 00:32:33.170 --> 00:32:36.060
  • JOY IS ALREADY WITHIN THEM AND THEY MUST LEARN
  • 00:32:36.080 --> 00:32:39.010
  • TO LIVE IN IT AND TO RELEASE IT.
  • 00:32:39.030 --> 00:32:41.080
  • A PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING, A JOY
  • 00:32:41.100 --> 00:32:43.040
  • THAT'S UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY, BUT

  • HEAR AND LISTEN TO HIM, IF YOU'VE GOT EARS TO HEAR.
  • 00:41:45.170 --> 00:41:47.270
  • HE SPEAKS TO PEOPLE IN SO MANY WAYS, BUT ONE OF THE
  • 00:41:47.290 --> 00:41:50.130
  • THINGS THAT HAS HELPED PEOPLE THE MOST IS WHEN I
  • 00:41:50.150 --> 00:41:52.050
  • TELL THEM, WHEN YOU LISTEN TO MATURE BELIEVERS
  • 00:41:52.070 --> 00:41:54.140
  • SAYING, YOU KNOW, I WAS JUST TALKING WITH GOD THIS
  • 00:41:54.160 --> 00:41:56.130
  • MORNING, AND HE TOLD ME THAT...
  • 00:41:56.150 --> 00:41:58.030
  • AND YOU KIND OF GO, I HAVE NEVER HEARD AN AUDIBLE
  • 00:41:58.050 --> 00:42:00.280
  • VOICE TO MY PHYSICAL EARS.
  • 00:42:01.000 --> 00:42:04.010
  • WHENEVER GOD LEADS ME, IT IS ALWAYS A FEELING THAT
  • 00:42:04.030 --> 00:42:08.240
  • RISES UP, NOT FROM MY EMOTIONS, BUT IT RISES
  • 00:42:08.260 --> 00:42:11.140
  • UP FROM HERE.
  • 00:42:11.160 --> 00:42:13.120
  • THERE'S A VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS, "THE
  • 00:42:13.140 --> 00:42:16.000
  • SPIRIT OF MAN IS THE CANDLE OF THE LORD
  • 00:42:16.020 --> 00:42:18.050
  • SEARCHING ALL INWARD PARTS OF THE BELLY." AND SO YOU
  • 00:42:18.070 --> 00:42:21.170
  • NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO, AS A THE BUSINESSMEN WHO
  • 00:42:21.190 --> 00:42:25.040
  • ARE WATCHING SAY, YOUR GUT.
  • 00:42:25.060 --> 00:42:27.070
  • MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE GREAT LEADERS IN OUR
  • 00:42:27.090 --> 00:42:30.100
  • CHURCH, EVEN BEFORE THEY GOT SAVED, WHEN ME HEAR ME
  • 00:42:30.120 --> 00:42:34.070
  • TEACH ON THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT, AND I GO
  • 00:42:34.090 --> 00:42:36.190
  • THROUGH THE STEPS YOU'RE ASKING ABOUT, WHAT
  • 00:42:36.210 --> 00:42:38.290
  • DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
  • 00:42:39.010 --> 00:42:40.210
  • WHERE DO YOU FIRST NOTICE IT?
  • 00:42:40.230 --> 00:42:42.170
  • I ALWAYS GO TO A GUT FEELING FIRST BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:42:42.190 --> 00:42:44.070
  • SO BIBLICAL.
  • 00:42:44.090 --> 00:42:46.010
  • IT'S THE BELLY OF MAN.
  • 00:42:46.030 --> 00:42:47.220
  • AND YOU SENSE THE SPIRIT IN YOUR BELLY.
  • 00:42:47.240 --> 00:42:49.120
  • YOU DON'T SENSE THE SPIRIT IN YOUR FEET.
  • 00:42:49.140 --> 00:42:51.020
  • YOU DON'T SENSE IT IN YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:42:51.040 --> 00:42:52.170
  • IT RISES UP TO YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:42:52.190 --> 00:42:54.090
  • AND SO I'LL TELL PEOPLE, HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A
  • 00:42:54.110 --> 00:42:56.260
  • ROOM, WHETHER IT'S A STARBUCKS OR SOMEONE'S
  • 00:42:56.280 --> 00:42:58.260
  • HOME WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND YOU JUST FEEL
  • 00:42:58.280 --> 00:43:01.100
  • DRAWN TO SOMEONE, AND THERE'S NOT A
  • 00:43:01.120 --> 00:43:03.190
  • REASON FOR IT?
  • 00:43:03.210 --> 00:43:05.160
  • THE GUY'S NOT FREAKING OUT AND GOING CRAZY.
  • 00:43:05.180 --> 00:43:07.100
  • IT'S JUST A PERSON, BUT YOU FEEL DRAWN.
  • 00:43:07.120 --> 00:43:09.070
  • THEY JUST STAND OUT TO YOU.
  • 00:43:09.090 --> 00:43:11.040
  • I SAID THAT WAS HOLY SPIRIT NUDGING YOU.
  • 00:43:11.060 --> 00:43:13.060
  • GO TALK TO HIM.
  • 00:43:13.080 --> 00:43:14.270
  • AND IF YOU'LL TAKE THE STEP OF FAITH AND GO OVER
  • 00:43:14.290 --> 00:43:17.060
  • AND SAY, HEY, I'M LEON.
  • 00:43:17.080 --> 00:43:18.270
  • HOW ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:43:18.290 --> 00:43:20.150
  • YOU'LL FIND THAT HE'LL QUICKLY LEAD YOU WITH A
  • 00:43:20.170 --> 00:43:22.080
  • SECOND STEP AS YOU LISTEN TO THAT MAN.
  • 00:43:22.100 --> 00:43:24.130
  • YOU'LL ASK HIM A QUESTION, AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN,
  • 00:43:24.150 --> 00:43:27.090
  • YOU REALIZE HE'S DYING OF CANCER.
  • 00:43:27.110 --> 00:43:29.250
  • SO I TELL PEOPLE THAT EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY HAS
  • 00:43:29.270 --> 00:43:34.030
  • HOLY SPIRIT GUIDING YOU BECAUSE IF HE'S NOT, THEN
  • 00:43:34.050 --> 00:43:37.270
  • HE'S A LIAR BECAUSE JESUS SAID HE WOULD LEAD US INTO
  • 00:43:37.290 --> 00:43:40.170
  • ALL TRUTH, EVERY PERSON.
  • 00:43:40.190 --> 00:43:44.290
  • JESUS SAID THAT WHEN HE COMES, HE WILL SHOW US
  • 00:43:45.010 --> 00:43:47.290
  • THINGS TO COME.
  • 00:43:48.010 --> 00:43:49.200
  • SO HE IS ALWAYS SENDING.
  • 00:43:49.220 --> 00:43:51.230
  • HE IS ALWAYS PREPARING, BOTH FOR US AND THE
  • 00:43:51.250 --> 00:43:55.220
  • HURTING PEOPLE WALKING AROUND US.
  • 00:43:55.240 --> 00:43:58.290
  • AND SO IF YOU JUST START AND SAY -- I THINK WE
  • 00:43:59.010 --> 00:44:01.200
  • SHOULD PRAY FOR PEOPLE THAT IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS,
  • 00:44:01.220 --> 00:44:04.270
  • THEY WOULD JUST SENSE A NUDGE AND EMBRACE SOMEONE
  • 00:44:04.290 --> 00:44:08.090
  • IN A CONVERSATION.
  • 00:44:08.110 --> 00:44:10.080
  • BILL HYBELS HAS A BOOK "JUST WALK ACROSS THE
  • 00:44:10.100 --> 00:44:12.190
  • ROOM." JUST START A CONVERSATION,
  • 00:44:12.210 --> 00:44:15.100
  • RELATIONSHIP, JUST RELATIONAL EVANGELISM, BUT
  • 00:44:15.120 --> 00:44:17.130
  • IF YOU'LL SENSE THAT.
  • 00:44:17.150 --> 00:44:19.050
  • AND THE OTHER THING WE'VE TAUGHT PEOPLE IS
  • 00:44:19.070 --> 00:44:20.250
  • THERE'S SO MANY WAYS.
  • 00:44:20.270 --> 00:44:22.170
  • THERE'S TIMES WHERE I CAN'T GET SOMEONE
  • 00:44:22.190 --> 00:44:24.000
  • OUT OF MY MIND.
  • 00:44:24.020 --> 00:44:25.090
  • I'M DRIVING MY CAR, AND I'M NOT EVEN THINKING
  • 00:44:25.110 --> 00:44:26.180
  • ABOUT THAT PERSON, AND BAM, THAT PERSON'S FACE
  • 00:44:26.200 --> 00:44:27.210
  • POPS INTO MY MIND.
  • 00:44:27.230 --> 00:44:30.290
  • SO WHAT I DO IS I DON'T PHONE THEM UP AND SAY HEY,
  • 00:44:31.010 --> 00:44:32.270
  • BILLY, MAN, THE LORD IS PUTTING YOU IN MY
  • 00:44:32.290 --> 00:44:34.260
  • HEAD RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:44:34.280 --> 00:44:36.070
  • I JUST GO, HEY, BILLY, HOW'S IT GOING, MAN?
  • 00:44:36.090 --> 00:44:37.220
  • I'M JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:44:37.240 --> 00:44:39.040
  • AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN YOU HEAR THIS QUIET LITTLE
  • 00:44:39.060 --> 00:44:41.110
  • LULL, AND HE GOES, LEON, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
  • 00:44:41.130 --> 00:44:43.180
  • YOU COULDN'T HAVE CALLED AT A BETTER TIME.
  • 00:44:43.200 --> 00:44:45.090
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT IS IT DOES TO YOU?
  • 00:44:45.110 --> 00:44:46.260
  • YOU JUST KIND OF GO, MAN, I HEARD FROM GOD!
  • 00:44:46.280 --> 00:44:49.110
  • THAT WAS GOD!
  • 00:44:49.130 --> 00:44:51.000
  • SO THERE'S TIMES SOMEONE WILL COME TO ME, THERE'S
  • 00:44:51.020 --> 00:44:52.130
  • TIMES I WILL SENSE A LITTLE BIT OF A HEAVINESS
  • 00:44:52.150 --> 00:44:54.070
  • FOR NO REASON, AND I'LL JUST SAY, GOD, WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:44:54.090 --> 00:44:57.220
  • AND SOMETIMES I'LL JUST PAY A LITTLE
  • 00:44:57.240 --> 00:44:59.280
  • MORE ATTENTION TO IT.
  • 00:45:00.020 --> 00:45:01.240
  • AND SOMEONE WILL COME TO MY MIND,
  • 00:45:01.260 --> 00:45:03.020
  • AND I'LL JUST CALL THEM.
  • 00:45:03.040 --> 00:45:04.170
  • OTHER TIMES, I WILL PHONE, HEY, LEON,
  • 00:45:04.190 --> 00:45:05.270
  • HOW ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:45:05.290 --> 00:45:07.070
  • I'M DOING REALLY GOOD, HOW ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:45:07.090 --> 00:45:08.150
  • MAN, I'M HAVING A GREAT DAY TODAY, BUT
  • 00:45:08.170 --> 00:45:09.250
  • THANKS FOR CALLING.
  • 00:45:09.270 --> 00:45:11.050
  • I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:45:11.070 --> 00:45:12.140
  • IT WASN'T THE GUY, I MISSED.
  • 00:45:12.160 --> 00:45:13.250
  • WE CAN DEVELOP A WAY OF PRACTICING TO HEAR, AND
  • 00:45:13.270 --> 00:45:17.030
  • THE ONLY WAY TO PRACTICE IS TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:45:17.050 --> 00:45:18.160
  • STEP OUT INTO IT.
  • 00:45:18.180 --> 00:45:20.090
  • BUT DON'T STEP OUT INTO AN ARROGANT, ABRASIVE,
  • 00:45:20.110 --> 00:45:22.230
  • CONDESCENDING WAY, LIKE YOU'RE THE MAN.
  • 00:45:22.250 --> 00:45:24.190
  • GOD SPOKE TO YOU.
  • 00:45:24.210 --> 00:45:26.080
  • BECAUSE THE WORLD THINKS WE'RE CRAZY, AND SO DO NEW

  • CHRISTIANS WHEN WE DO THAT.
  • 00:45:28.150 --> 00:45:30.100
  • AND SO TO START, WE NEED TO KNOW THE WORD.
  • 00:45:30.120 --> 00:45:32.170
  • THERE'S TWO THINGS THAT ARE POWERFUL.
  • 00:45:32.190 --> 00:45:36.190
  • THE FIRST IS TO KNOW GOD'S WILL OF HIM FLOWING
  • 00:45:36.210 --> 00:45:40.000
  • THROUGH YOU AND TO YOU.
  • 00:45:40.020 --> 00:45:42.040
  • AND THE SECOND IS TO BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:45:42.060 --> 00:45:45.050
  • AND THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER THING THAT WE
  • 00:45:45.070 --> 00:45:47.190
  • WON'T COVER HERE.
  • 00:45:47.210 --> 00:45:49.090
  • BUT PEOPLE NEED TO BE AWARE THAT YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:45:49.110 --> 00:45:51.110
  • FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:45:51.130 --> 00:45:52.190
  • WHATEVER YOUR DOCTRINE IS, YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:45:52.210 --> 00:45:53.220
  • AWARE OF THAT.
  • 00:45:53.240 --> 00:45:55.040
  • THE DISCIPLES ALWAYS MINISTERED FROM THE OVERFLOW.
  • 00:45:55.060 --> 00:45:57.000
  • SO I WORK HARD -- I SHOULD REPHRASE THAT.
  • 00:45:57.020 --> 00:45:58.260

  • STEP INTO A SITUATION, SO I LIVE THERE DAILY.

  • 00:46:15.260 --> 00:46:17.260
  • THE NEXT TIME YOU THINK OF SOMEBODY, PHONE THEM.

  • NEXT TIME YOU FEEL A NUDGE, GO TALK TO THEM.
  • 00:46:20.120 --> 00:46:22.250

  • 00:46:22.270 --> 00:46:24.120

  • BIBLE DOESN'T SAY STORMS WON'T COME.
  • 00:50:01.240 --> 00:50:04.140

  • YOU WON'T BE SHAKEN.
  • 00:50:07.080 --> 00:50:09.000
  • AND WHEN THE STORM BLOWS BY, YOU WILL BE STANDING
  • 00:50:09.020 --> 00:50:12.070

  • WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS, THERE YOU ARE STILL STANDING.

  • AND THIS GIVES US HOPE IN THE MIDST OF CRISES.
