  • - ROBERT: AND THAT IS THAT THE
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:03:59.190
  • WORD "BLESSED" IN THE BIBLE IS
  • 00:03:59.190 --> 00:04:01.110
  • THE GREEK WORD IN THE NEW
  • 00:04:01.110 --> 00:04:03.090
  • TESTAMENT, "MAKARIOS," AND IT
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:05.270

  • FIRST, AND LET'S LIVE OUT
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:04:59.010
  • - MATT: OKAY.
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:02.060
  • WE STARTED WITH 1 TIMOTHY,
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:04.110
  • YOUR TAKE ON THAT, PASTOR?
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:08.290
  • - ROBERT: WELL, PAUL IS TALKIN'
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:09.210
  • TO TIMOTHY, TIMOTHY BEIN' A
  • 00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:10.110
  • SPIRITUAL SON, AND HE'S SETTING
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:12.000
  • UP GUIDELINES FOR THE CHURCH.
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:14.170
  • THAT CHAPTER STARTS WITH SAYING
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:16.290
  • THE QUALIFICATIONS OF ELDERS
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:17.190
  • AND THE QUALIFICATIONS OF
  • 00:05:20.140 --> 00:05:21.030
  • DEACONS SHOULD BE.
  • 00:05:21.030 --> 00:05:22.230
  • AND HE'S SAYING THE REASON THIS
  • 00:05:22.230 --> 00:05:23.150
  • IS IMPORTANT IS BECAUSE WE'RE
  • 00:05:23.150 --> 00:05:25.110
  • TALKIN' ABOUT THE CHURCH.
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:26.170
  • WE'RE TALKIN' ABOUT THE BODY OF
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:27.210
  • CHRIST ON THIS EARTH.
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:29.060
  • AND, OF COURSE, THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:30.290
  • IN JESUS IS THE FOUNDATION WHICH
  • 00:05:30.290 --> 00:05:33.040
  • EVERYTHING IS BUILT, BUT EVERY
  • 00:05:33.040 --> 00:05:34.010
  • FOUNDATION HAS SOME PILLARS.
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:36.000
  • AND SO THAT'S WHAT HE'S SAYIN'
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:38.070
  • IS THAT THE CHURCH THEN IS BUILT
  • 00:05:38.070 --> 00:05:40.080
  • ON THE PILLARS OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:43.140
  • AND IT WAS REALLY INTERESTING TO
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:45.090
  • ME WHEN YOU WERE SHARING HOW GOD
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:46.220
  • HAS GIVEN YOU SOME PILLARS TO

  • MAKE SURE TRINITY BROADCASTING
  • 00:05:48.170 --> 00:05:51.050
  • NETWORK IS OBVIOUSLY BUILT ON
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:53.000
  • THE WORD OF GOD, AND IT HAS BEEN
  • 00:05:53.000 --> 00:05:54.190
  • FOR MANY YEARS, BUT WHAT ARE THE
  • 00:05:54.190 --> 00:05:55.260
  • PILLARS THAT YOU WANNA FOCUS ON,
  • 00:05:55.260 --> 00:05:57.230
  • AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE FOUR
  • 00:05:57.230 --> 00:05:59.190
  • PILLARS THAT GOD'S GIVEN YOU.
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:03.020
  • - MATT: LEON, YOUR THOUGHTS ON
  • 00:06:03.020 --> 00:06:03.240

  • WE ARE LIFELESS WITHOUT HOPE AND

  • THAT, LET ME TELL YOU THAT THEIR
  • 00:13:29.080 --> 00:13:30.000
  • VOICES ARE GETTING SMALLER AND
  • 00:13:30.000 --> 00:13:30.210
  • SMALLER, AND THE VOICES OF GRACE
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:31.130
  • ARE GETTING STRONGER AND
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:32.150
  • STRONGER.
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:33.270
  • WHY?
  • 00:13:33.270 --> 00:13:35.290

  • BUT YEARS HAVE COME AND GONE,
  • 00:13:38.080 --> 00:13:38.290
  • AND GOD'S COVENANT IS STRONGER.
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:39.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:13:39.210 --> 00:13:40.290
  • BECAUSE GRACE IS ALL ABOUT
  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:41.280
  • JESUS.
  • 00:13:41.280 --> 00:13:43.060

  • COURSE TO A BLESSED LIFE.

  • - ROBERT: WELL, THE WORD
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:34.270
  • "GIVING"-- AND LAURIE SAID IT SO
  • 00:14:34.270 --> 00:14:35.190
  • "WE DON'T GIVE TO GET.
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:39.250
  • WE GET TO GIVE."
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:40.170
  • THAT IS JUST FANTASTIC AND--
  • 00:14:40.170 --> 00:14:41.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:45.030 --> 00:14:46.070
  • - ROBERT: WELL...
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:46.220
  • - LAURIE: THAT WAS VERY KIND!
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:47.210
  • - ROBERT: I'M NOT SURE I EVER
  • 00:14:47.210 --> 00:14:48.190
  • SAID IT THAT ELOQUENTLY!
  • 00:14:48.190 --> 00:14:50.060
  • BUT I WILL FROM NOW ON, AND
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:50.260
  • IT'LL BE IN THE NEXT BOOK SO--
  • 00:14:50.260 --> 00:14:51.170
  • BUT WE REALLY DO GET TO GIVE,
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:55.190
  • AND I LIKE TO SAY WE ARE THE
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:56.100
  • MOST LIKE GOD WHEN WE GIVE, AND
  • 00:14:56.100 --> 00:14:58.100
  • SO MANY TIMES PEOPLE DON'T THINK
  • 00:14:58.100 --> 00:15:00.110
  • ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:02.040
  • YOU KNOW, THE SUBJECT OF THE
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:02.280
  • BIBLE IS GOD.
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:05.140
  • I WAS ASKIN' A BIBLE COLLEGE
  • 00:15:05.140 --> 00:15:06.040
  • CLASS A WHILE BACK, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:15:06.040 --> 00:15:07.120
  • "WHAT'S THE SUBJECT OF THE
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:08.090
  • AND THIS PRETTY LITTLE GIRL
  • 00:15:10.260 --> 00:15:11.160
  • SAID, "WE ARE."
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.000
  • I SAID, "NO, HONEY, YOU'RE
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:12.190
  • GONNA REALIZE, AS YOU GET
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:13.080
  • A LITTLE OLDER, THE WORLD DOES
  • 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:13.290
  • NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU."
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:15.250
  • BUT WE'RE THE OBJECT OF
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:16.230
  • THE BIBLE.
  • 00:15:16.230 --> 00:15:17.230
  • WE ARE THE OBJECT, BUT GOD'S THE
  • 00:15:17.230 --> 00:15:18.220
  • SUBJECT, OBVIOUSLY.
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:19.190
  • BUT WHAT'S THE VERB OR THE
  • 00:15:19.190 --> 00:15:21.020
  • ACTION OF THE BIBLE?
  • 00:15:21.020 --> 00:15:22.070
  • AND SOME WOULD SAY "LOVE," BUT
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:24.000
  • I'D LIKE TO SUBMIT THE WORD
  • 00:15:24.000 --> 00:15:24.200
  • "GIVE."
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:26.140
  • AND HERE'S THE REASON WHY.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:27.120
  • THE MOST FAMOUS VERSE IN THE
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:28.210
  • BIBLE: "FOR GOD SO LOVED...THAT
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:31.020
  • HE GAVE."
  • 00:15:31.020 --> 00:15:33.190
  • IF GOD HADN'T GIVEN,
  • 00:15:33.190 --> 00:15:35.030
  • WE'D STILL BE LOST IF HE HAD
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:36.200
  • JUST LOVED AND NOT GIVEN.
  • 00:15:36.200 --> 00:15:38.100
  • SO WE'RE HERE TODAY EVEN TALKING
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:40.090
  • BECAUSE GOD GAVE HIS SON.
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:44.260
  • WE'RE HERE BECAUSE JESUS GAVE
  • 00:15:44.260 --> 00:15:45.270
  • HIS LIFE.
  • 00:15:45.270 --> 00:15:47.100
  • WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE GAVE OUR
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:48.190
  • LIVES TO GOD, AND WE GAVE OUR
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:49.100
  • TIME TODAY TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:15:49.120 --> 00:15:52.120
  • MINISTER TO PEOPLE AND HELP
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:53.060
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:53.060 --> 00:15:54.280
  • SO IT'S ALL ABOUT GIVING, AND
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:55.240
  • THAT'S WHAT I WANNA BE ABLE TO
  • 00:15:55.240 --> 00:15:56.150
  • SHARE WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:57.260
  • WE ARE NOT ONLY THE MOST LIKE
  • 00:15:57.260 --> 00:15:58.170
  • GOD, WE'RE THE HAPPIEST WHEN WE
  • 00:15:58.170 --> 00:15:59.170
  • GIVE.
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:01.090
  • IF YOU THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS,
  • 00:16:01.090 --> 00:16:02.110
  • EVEN THE WORLD GETS IT RIGHT
  • 00:16:02.110 --> 00:16:03.270
  • THAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT GIVING,
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:04.250
  • NOT ABOUT GETTING.
  • 00:16:04.250 --> 00:16:07.060
  • YOU KNOW, YOU SIT THERE AT
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:08.200
  • CHRISTMAS AND YOU OPEN PRESENTS.
  • 00:16:08.200 --> 00:16:09.200
  • AND AS YOU'RE YOUNG, WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:16:10.140 --> 00:16:13.140
  • GETTING IS THE MOST EXCITING
  • 00:16:13.140 --> 00:16:14.040
  • THING TO YOU, BUT AS YOU GET
  • 00:16:14.040 --> 00:16:15.240
  • OLDER AND YOU BEGIN TO MATURE,
  • 00:16:15.240 --> 00:16:16.150
  • WHAT YOU'RE GIVING IS THE MOST
  • 00:16:16.150 --> 00:16:18.050
  • EXCITING THING TO YOU.
  • 00:16:18.050 --> 00:16:20.250
  • AND I REALLY BELIEVE, AS
  • 00:16:20.250 --> 00:16:21.130
  • CHILDREN OF GOD, THAT'S WHERE WE
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:22.120
  • ARE.
  • 00:16:22.120 --> 00:16:23.070
  • WHEN WE GROW UP IN THE KINGDOM,
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:25.050
  • WE GET MORE EXCITED ABOUT GIVING
  • 00:16:25.050 --> 00:16:26.150
  • THAN WE DO ABOUT GETTING, AND
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:28.240
  • - FEMALE NARRATOR: "IN
  • 00:16:35.260 --> 00:16:36.140
  • EVERYTHING I DID, I SHOWED YOU
  • 00:16:36.140 --> 00:16:37.050
  • THAT BY THIS KIND OF HARD WORK
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:37.260
  • WE MUST HELP THE WEAK,
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:40.130
  • REMEMBERING THE WORDS OF THE
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:41.270
  • LORD JESUS HIMSELF: 'IT IS MORE
  • 00:16:41.270 --> 00:16:42.190
  • BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO
  • 00:16:42.190 --> 00:16:43.070
  • - ROBERT: I THINK GOD CARES
  • 00:16:47.140 --> 00:16:48.040
  • ABOUT EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE,
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:48.290
  • INCLUDING OUR FINANCES.
  • 00:16:48.290 --> 00:16:50.150
  • JESUS TOLD 38 PARABLES.
  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:51.270
  • SIXTEEN OF THOSE PARABLES HAVE
  • 00:16:51.270 --> 00:16:53.130
  • TO DO WITH FINANCES AND MATERIAL
  • 00:16:54.030 --> 00:16:57.030
  • POSSESSIONS, AND THEN JESUS
  • 00:16:57.030 --> 00:16:59.040
  • MAKES AN INCREDIBLE STATEMENT,
  • 00:16:59.040 --> 00:17:01.130
  • AND THAT STATEMENT IS THAT
  • 00:17:01.130 --> 00:17:02.150
  • "WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:04.020
  • YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO."
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:07.030
  • AND I'VE HEARD THAT EVEN
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:08.170
  • MISQUOTED THAT PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:17:08.170 --> 00:17:09.110
  • YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:09.270
  • "WHERE YOUR HEART IS, THERE YOUR
  • 00:17:09.270 --> 00:17:10.250
  • TREASURE WILL BE."
  • 00:17:10.250 --> 00:17:13.070
  • NO, JESUS DIDN'T SAY THAT.
  • 00:17:13.070 --> 00:17:15.000
  • WHAT HE'S SAYING IS YOUR HEART
  • 00:17:15.000 --> 00:17:16.060
  • FOLLOWS YOUR TREASURE.
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:18.100
  • AND SO WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:19.010
  • THAT GOD IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:20.140
  • OUR MATERIAL NEEDS.
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:22.140
  • HE'S CONCERNED LIKE A GOOD
  • 00:17:22.140 --> 00:17:23.260
  • FATHER WILL BE.
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:25.270
  • HE'S A GREAT FATHER, AND HE IS
  • 00:17:25.270 --> 00:17:26.180
  • CONCERNED THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH
  • 00:17:26.180 --> 00:17:28.220
  • NOT ONLY TO LIVE ON AND TO
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:31.260
  • PROVIDE FOR OUR FAMILY, BUT HE
  • 00:17:31.260 --> 00:17:33.150
  • WANTS US TO GET IN ON THE JOY OF
  • 00:17:33.150 --> 00:17:34.210
  • GIVING.
  • 00:17:34.210 --> 00:17:36.130
  • SO GOD ACTUALLY PROVIDES FOR OUR
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:37.050
  • NEEDS AND GIVES US A LITTLE MORE
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:38.230
  • SO WE CAN EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF
  • 00:17:38.240 --> 00:17:41.240
  • GIVING, WHICH IS WHAT GOD DOES
  • 00:17:41.240 --> 00:17:42.150
  • ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:17:42.150 --> 00:17:45.020
  • HE GIVES US GRACE, HE GIVES US
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:45.270
  • MERCY, AND HE GIVES US
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:47.070

  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:54.130
  • ARE BLESSED-- WE'VE SEEN THIS
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:55.280
  • OVER AND OVER AGAIN-- IS WE
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:56.280
  • BRING THE FIRST 10% TO THE HOUSE
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:18:00.070
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:03.070
  • EVEN HEBREWS BACKS IT UP, NEW
  • 00:18:03.070 --> 00:18:03.290
  • TESTAMENT, THAT JESUS HIMSELF
  • 00:18:03.290 --> 00:18:06.120
  • RECEIVES AND BLESSES OUR
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:07.260
  • FINANCES.
  • 00:18:07.260 --> 00:18:09.180
  • SO YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE FIRST--
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:11.000
  • SEE, I KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO GIVE
  • 00:18:11.000 --> 00:18:12.070
  • A LITTLE HERE AND GIVE A LITTLE
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:13.280
  • THERE, BUT THEY DON'T BRING THE
  • 00:18:13.280 --> 00:18:14.290
  • FIRST 10% TO THE HOUSE OF GOD.
  • 00:18:14.290 --> 00:18:17.130
  • LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:18:17.130 --> 00:18:18.250
  • THEIR FINANCES ARE NOT BLESSED,
  • 00:18:18.250 --> 00:18:20.190
  • AND THEY WILL NEVER MULTIPLY
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:22.060
  • BECAUSE ONLY JESUS CAN BLESS
  • 00:18:22.060 --> 00:18:23.050
  • THEM.
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:25.120
  • SEE, THINK ABOUT THIS: WHAT IF
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:26.230
  • THE DISCIPLES HAD GIVEN AWAY,
  • 00:18:26.230 --> 00:18:27.260
  • GIVEN OUT THE TWO FISH AND THE
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:31.220
  • FIVE LOAVES BEFORE JESUS BLESSED
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:32.190
  • IT?
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:37.110
  • I'M GON' SAY THAT AGAIN BECAUSE
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:38.030
  • THAT'S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:18:38.030 --> 00:18:38.230
  • WHAT IF THEY HAD JUST STARTED
  • 00:18:38.230 --> 00:18:39.150
  • GIVING IT AWAY, AND JESUS HAD
  • 00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:41.160
  • NOT BLESSED IT?
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:42.170
  • WOULD IT EVER HAVE MULTIPLIED?
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:43.130
  • NO.
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:44.020
  • SO BLESS AND GIVE.
  • 00:18:44.020 --> 00:18:45.270
  • IT'S THE SAME WAY WHEN YOU GIVE
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:47.160
  • A LITTLE HERE, A LITTLE THERE,
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:48.070
  • BUT YOU DON'T BRING THE FIRST
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:49.070
  • 10% TO THE HOUSE OF GOD.
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:52.180
  • IT DOES NOT HAVE THE BLESSING OF
  • 00:18:52.180 --> 00:18:53.160
  • - NARRATOR: "'BRING THE WHOLE

  • THAT THERE MAY BE FOOD IN MY

  • HOUSE, AND TEST ME NOW IN THIS,'
  • 00:18:58.220 --> 00:19:00.170

  • WILL NOT OPEN FOR YOU THE

  • FOR YOU A BLESSING UNTIL IT

  • - ROBERT: THERE'S A MESSAGE
  • 00:19:10.040 --> 00:19:10.240
  • TODAY THAT WE CALL THE
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:11.280
  • PROSPERITY MESSAGE.
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:12.270
  • IT'S BASICALLY, "GIVE AND YOU'LL
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:15.010
  • GET," "GIVE AND YOU'LL GET,"
  • 00:19:15.010 --> 00:19:17.000
  • AND, YOU KNOW, "GOD WANTS TO
  • 00:19:17.000 --> 00:19:18.030

  • 00:19:21.260 --> 00:19:22.220
  • AND THE PROBLEM WITH THAT
  • 00:19:22.220 --> 00:19:25.150
  • MESSAGE IS THAT IT ACTUALLY
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:27.070
  • WORKS SELFISHNESS AND GREED INTO
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:28.290

  • - MATT: AT SOME POINT,
  • 00:19:39.250 --> 00:19:40.130
  • SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE,
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:41.020
  • PROSPERITY-GIVING MESSAGE DID GO
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:44.020
  • WRONG.
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:47.160
  • IS THAT TRUE?
  • 00:19:47.160 --> 00:19:48.130
  • - ROBERT: ABSOLUTELY TRUE,
  • 00:19:48.130 --> 00:19:49.180
  • ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:19:49.180 --> 00:19:52.080
  • - MATT: SO THAT PEOPLE WILL
  • 00:19:52.080 --> 00:19:53.160
  • UNDERSTAND THAT WE KNOW THE
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:54.060
  • PLEASE DESCRIBE HOW
  • 00:19:57.040 --> 00:19:57.220
  • IT WENT WRONG SO THAT WE CAN
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:20:00.160
  • MAKE SURE EVERYONE GETS THAT
  • 00:20:00.160 --> 00:20:02.250
  • WE'RE SAYING SOMETHING NEW.
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:04.140
  • WE'RE NOT POLISHING THE OLD
  • 00:20:04.220 --> 00:20:07.220
  • MOUND OF TEACHING AND TRYING TO
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:09.170
  • WE'RE STARTING WITH A NEW
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:14.280
  • MESSAGE WITH A NEW MOTIVE, OKAY?
  • 00:20:14.280 --> 00:20:16.220
  • SO MAKE SURE THEY KNOW YOU KNOW
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:18.110
  • THAT IT DID GO WRONG AND WHAT
  • 00:20:18.110 --> 00:20:19.270
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:20:19.270 --> 00:20:22.030
  • LUKE 6:38, AS WE SAID BEFORE,
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:26.050
  • "GIVE, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO
  • 00:20:26.050 --> 00:20:26.290
  • YOU," HAS BEEN PREACHED AS THE
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:27.280
  • MOTIVE FOR GIVING INSTEAD OF THE
  • 00:20:27.280 --> 00:20:29.090
  • AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:35.280
  • IN OTHER WORDS, "GIVE, AND
  • 00:20:35.280 --> 00:20:36.170
  • YOU'LL GET,"
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:37.090
  • "GIVE, AND YOU'LL GET,"
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:38.200
  • AND THAT BECAME OUR MOTIVE
  • 00:20:38.200 --> 00:20:39.090
  • FOR GIVING INSTEAD OF "GIVE
  • 00:20:39.090 --> 00:20:40.110
  • BECAUSE YOU WANNA HELP SOMEONE."
  • 00:20:40.110 --> 00:20:42.270
  • YOU GO BACK TO VERSE 30, AND
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:44.280
  • JESUS IS TALKIN' ABOUT "GIVE TO
  • 00:20:44.280 --> 00:20:47.060
  • EVERYONE WHO ASKS OF YA."
  • 00:20:47.060 --> 00:20:49.210
  • AND IF THEY WANT YOUR COAT,
  • 00:20:49.210 --> 00:20:51.000
  • GIVE 'EM YOUR SHIRT TOO,
  • 00:20:51.000 --> 00:20:51.220
  • AND LOAN TO PEOPLE,
  • 00:20:51.220 --> 00:20:53.110
  • AND DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING BACK.
  • 00:20:53.110 --> 00:20:54.260
  • WELL, THAT SOUNDS LIKE "GIVING,"
  • 00:20:54.260 --> 00:20:56.210
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOAN AND SAY,
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:57.260
  • "DON'T PAY ME BACK THOUGH."
  • 00:20:57.260 --> 00:20:59.120
  • "DON'T EVER PAY ME BACK."
  • 00:20:59.120 --> 00:21:00.040
  • THAT'S A GIFT.
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:02.050
  • SO HE'S GOING TO THE MOTIVE.
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:03.240
  • SO THE HEART, WHAT GOD WANTS TO
  • 00:21:03.240 --> 00:21:05.230
  • BLESS, IS A MATURING CHILD, A
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:09.220
  • CHILD WHO'S GROWING UP IN THE
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:11.100
  • LORD, AND HE'S NOT GIVING FOR A
  • 00:21:11.100 --> 00:21:12.060
  • SELFISH REASON.
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:16.040
  • HE'S GIVING BECAUSE HE REALLY
  • 00:21:16.040 --> 00:21:16.250
  • WANTS TO HELP SOMEONE, AND HE'S
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:18.050
  • SAYING, "IF I DON'T EVER GET
  • 00:21:18.050 --> 00:21:18.250
  • ANYTHING BACK FROM THIS, I'M
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:19.150
  • OKAY WITH THAT."
  • 00:21:19.150 --> 00:21:21.250
  • AND I THINK GOD LOOKS DOWN AND
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:23.150
  • SAYS, "BACK THE DUMP TRUCK UP!
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:24.060
  • I'VE NEVER HEARD ROBERT MORRIS
  • 00:21:24.060 --> 00:21:26.040
  • TALK LIKE THIS.
  • 00:21:26.040 --> 00:21:27.250
  • ROBERT MORRIS GREW UP SELFISH,
  • 00:21:27.250 --> 00:21:28.270
  • AND HE WAS ALL CONCERNED ABOUT
  • 00:21:28.270 --> 00:21:30.060
  • HIMSELF, AND NOW HE'S SAYIN', 'I
  • 00:21:30.060 --> 00:21:31.180
  • DON'T WANT ANYTHING BACK, GOD.
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:33.000
  • I JUST WANNA HELP THIS PERSON.'
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:34.240
  • BRING THE DUMP TRUCK!"
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:36.240
  • AND THEN, YOU KNOW, THE LORD HAS
  • 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:38.010
  • BLESSED GATEWAY CHURCH.
  • 00:21:38.290 --> 00:21:41.290
  • WE GIVE ABOUT A MILLION AND A
  • 00:21:41.290 --> 00:21:43.010
  • HALF DOLLARS A MONTH TO
  • 00:21:43.010 --> 00:21:44.150
  • MISSIONS.
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:47.040
  • I MEAN, THAT WAS UNHEARD OF
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:47.240
  • YEARS AGO, AND THERE ARE
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:48.280
  • PROBABLY LOTS OF CHURCHES THAT
  • 00:21:48.280 --> 00:21:49.190
  • GET TO DO THAT, BUT OVER $20
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:51.110
  • MILLION A YEAR TO MISSIONS-- I
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:52.020
  • THINK ONE OF THE REASONS IS
  • 00:21:52.020 --> 00:21:54.230
  • BECAUSE GOD GAVE ME HUNDREDS OF
  • 00:21:54.230 --> 00:21:57.060
  • DOLLARS, YEARS AGO, AND I WAS A
  • 00:21:57.060 --> 00:21:58.180
  • GOOD STEWARD WITH IT.
  • 00:21:58.180 --> 00:22:01.100
  • I WAS CHANNELING IT, FUNNELING
  • 00:22:01.100 --> 00:22:02.080
  • IT TO PEOPLE WHO NEEDED IT AND
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:04.050
  • TO GET THE GOSPEL OUT.
  • 00:22:04.050 --> 00:22:06.130
  • AND THEN, SO HE SAID, "OKAY.
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:07.070
  • HE'S BEEN FAITHFUL TO HUNDREDS.
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:07.290
  • LET ME GIVE HIM THOUSANDS," AND
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:09.220
  • THEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, AND
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:10.180
  • NOW MILLIONS.
  • 00:22:10.180 --> 00:22:13.070
  • MAYBE ONE DAY WE CAN GIVE $100
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:13.280
  • MILLION A YEAR.
  • 00:22:13.280 --> 00:22:15.030
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:22:15.030 --> 00:22:16.270
  • BUT WHAT GOD IS LOOKING FOR, IF
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:17.240
  • YOU THINK ABOUT IT, OVER HERE
  • 00:22:17.240 --> 00:22:19.290
  • WOULD BE ALL OF THE NEEDS: ALL
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:22.270
  • THE CHURCHES THAT NEED TO BE
  • 00:22:22.270 --> 00:22:24.110
  • BUILT, ALL OF THE POOR PEOPLE
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:25.280
  • THAT NEED TO BE HELPED, ALL THE
  • 00:22:25.280 --> 00:22:27.090
  • PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER HEARD THE
  • 00:22:27.090 --> 00:22:28.130
  • GOSPEL, ALL THE NEEDS.
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:29.100
  • OVER HERE IS GOD WITH ALL THE
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:30.190
  • RESOURCES.
  • 00:22:30.190 --> 00:22:32.120
  • HE'S GOT 'EM ALL.
  • 00:22:32.120 --> 00:22:34.140
  • THERE'S NOT ONE HE DOESN'T HAVE,
  • 00:22:34.140 --> 00:22:35.060
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:35.170
  • HE'S GOT 'EM ALL.
  • 00:22:35.170 --> 00:22:36.180
  • BUT WHAT'S IN BETWEEN?
  • 00:22:36.180 --> 00:22:37.070
  • I AM.
  • 00:22:37.070 --> 00:22:38.240
  • I'M IN BETWEEN.
  • 00:22:38.240 --> 00:22:40.080
  • SO HE'S TRYING TO, BECAUSE HE
  • 00:22:40.080 --> 00:22:41.160
  • WORKS THROUGH PEOPLE, HE'S
  • 00:22:41.160 --> 00:22:42.170
  • TRYING TO GET THE RESOURCES, THE
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:43.270
  • GOSPEL, TO THESE PEOPLE OVER
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:45.290
  • HERE, BUT I'M THE ONE IN
  • 00:22:45.290 --> 00:22:46.250
  • BETWEEN.
  • 00:22:46.250 --> 00:22:48.080
  • SO HE'LL GIVE ME A LITTLE AND
  • 00:22:48.080 --> 00:22:49.030
  • SEE WHAT I DO WITH IT.
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:50.270
  • AND IF I'M FAITHFUL WITH A
  • 00:22:50.270 --> 00:22:51.280
  • LITTLE, THEN HE'LL GIVE ME MORE.
  • 00:22:51.280 --> 00:22:54.100
  • AND THE DIFFERENCE IN THE
  • 00:22:54.100 --> 00:22:57.050
  • PROSPERITY GOSPEL MESSAGE IS GOD
  • 00:22:57.050 --> 00:22:58.250
  • IS GIVING IT TO YOU BECAUSE HE
  • 00:22:58.250 --> 00:23:01.040
  • WANTS TO BLESS YOU RATHER THAN
  • 00:23:01.040 --> 00:23:02.270
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BE A BLESSING.
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:05.130
  • AND I DO WANNA SAY, AS A GOOD
  • 00:23:05.130 --> 00:23:06.290
  • FATHER, I LIKE TO GIVE MY KIDS
  • 00:23:06.290 --> 00:23:08.280
  • GIFTS, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE
  • 00:23:08.280 --> 00:23:11.220
  • MY CHILDREN-- AND THEY ARE-- I'D
  • 00:23:11.220 --> 00:23:12.140
  • LIKE-- I WANNA SEE 'EM TO BE
  • 00:23:12.140 --> 00:23:14.230
  • GIVERS AND NOT JUST, "GIVE ME
  • 00:23:14.230 --> 00:23:17.160
  • MORE, DAD," "GIVE ME MORE, DAD,"
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:18.270
  • "GIVE ME MORE, DAD."
  • 00:23:18.270 --> 00:23:20.090
  • I WANT THEM TO BE GOOD
  • 00:23:20.090 --> 00:23:21.010
  • STEWARDS AND GIVERS.
  • 00:23:21.010 --> 00:23:23.020
  • AND WHEN GOD SEES A GOOD STEWARD
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:24.070
  • AND A GIVER, THERE IS NO LIMIT
  • 00:23:24.070 --> 00:23:25.060
  • TO HOW HE'LL BLESS THAT PERSON
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:28.020
  • SO THAT PERSON CAN BE A
  • 00:23:28.020 --> 00:23:28.250
  • - ROBERT: WELL, TWO THINGS THAT
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:37.150
  • I WOULD TELL ANY PERSON THAT IS
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:39.000
  • TRYING TO LIVE THE BLESSED LIFE
  • 00:23:39.000 --> 00:23:40.030
  • BUT THEIR FINANCES ARE STILL IN
  • 00:23:40.030 --> 00:23:40.250
  • A MESS, ONE GUY CAME TO ME AND
  • 00:23:40.250 --> 00:23:43.080
  • SAID, "YOU KNOW, IT DOESN'T WORK
  • 00:23:43.080 --> 00:23:44.000
  • FOR EVERYONE.
  • 00:23:44.000 --> 00:23:45.260
  • THE BLESSED LIFE DOESN'T WORK
  • 00:23:45.260 --> 00:23:46.170
  • FOR EVERYONE."
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:47.220
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:23:47.220 --> 00:23:48.080
  • "WHAT DO YOU MEAN?"
  • 00:23:48.080 --> 00:23:48.240
  • HE SAID, "WELL, I'M GETTING, AND
  • 00:23:48.240 --> 00:23:49.160
  • I'M GETTING-- I'M GIVING, AND
  • 00:23:49.160 --> 00:23:50.260
  • I'M NOT GETTING ANYTHING BACK."
  • 00:23:50.260 --> 00:23:53.130
  • I SAID, "WAIT A MINUTE."
  • 00:23:53.130 --> 00:23:54.010
  • THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF THE
  • 00:23:54.010 --> 00:23:54.220
  • BOOK IS TO "GIVE TO GIVE,"
  • 00:23:54.220 --> 00:23:55.110
  • NOT "GIVE TO GET."
  • 00:23:55.110 --> 00:23:55.260
  • SO LET'S ALSO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:23:55.260 --> 00:23:57.230
  • WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON.
  • 00:23:57.230 --> 00:23:58.120
  • HE SAID, "WELL, MY FINANCES ARE
  • 00:23:58.120 --> 00:23:59.200
  • ALSO IN A MESS."
  • 00:23:59.200 --> 00:24:00.060
  • I SAID, "WELL, HOLD ON.
  • 00:24:00.060 --> 00:24:01.110
  • THE BOOK'S REALLY ABOUT GIVING,
  • 00:24:01.110 --> 00:24:03.070
  • BUT ARE YOU BUYING THINGS ON
  • 00:24:03.070 --> 00:24:04.110
  • CREDIT CARD?
  • 00:24:04.110 --> 00:24:06.220
  • ARE YOU LIVING ABOVE YOUR MEANS?
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:07.140
  • I MEAN, WHAT FINANCIAL
  • 00:24:07.140 --> 00:24:09.100
  • PRINCIPLES DO YOU HAVE IN PLACE?
  • 00:24:09.100 --> 00:24:10.200
  • ARE YOU ON A BUDGET?"
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:11.070
  • AND NONE OF THOSE WERE IN PLACE
  • 00:24:11.070 --> 00:24:13.100
  • IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:24:13.100 --> 00:24:15.030
  • SO I WANNA SHARE WITH PEOPLE
  • 00:24:15.030 --> 00:24:16.120
  • THAT IT'S MORE THAN JUST GIVING.
  • 00:24:16.120 --> 00:24:17.040
  • IT'S ALSO ABOUT BEING A GOOD
  • 00:24:17.130 --> 00:24:20.130
  • - NARRATOR: "EACH OF YOU SHOULD
  • 00:24:25.280 --> 00:24:26.200
  • USE WHATEVER GIFT YOU HAVE
  • 00:24:26.200 --> 00:24:27.140
  • RECEIVED TO SERVE OTHERS, AS
  • 00:24:27.140 --> 00:24:28.210
  • FAITHFUL STEWARDS OF GOD'S GRACE
  • 00:24:28.210 --> 00:24:29.240
  • 00:24:33.090 --> 00:24:34.260
  • - ROBERT: SO I SAID,
  • 00:24:34.260 --> 00:24:35.140
  • "WELL, LORD, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME
  • 00:24:35.140 --> 00:24:36.060
  • TO DO?"
  • 00:24:36.060 --> 00:24:36.160
  • BACK THEN, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO
  • 00:24:36.160 --> 00:24:37.180
  • DO.
  • 00:24:37.180 --> 00:24:38.040
  • AND HE TOLD ME THREE THINGS, SO
  • 00:24:38.040 --> 00:24:38.260
  • I'M GONNA TELL YOU THE THREE
  • 00:24:38.260 --> 00:24:39.160
  • THINGS HE TOLD ME.
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:40.060
  • HE SAID, "NUMBER ONE, GET OUT OF
  • 00:24:40.060 --> 00:24:41.030
  • DEBT."
  • 00:24:41.030 --> 00:24:43.240
  • NOW, THIS MEANS DIFFERENT
  • 00:24:43.240 --> 00:24:44.130
  • THINGS TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:44.130 --> 00:24:45.210
  • DIFFERENT PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT
  • 00:24:45.210 --> 00:24:46.150
  • CONVICTIONS, OKAY?
  • 00:24:46.150 --> 00:24:48.240
  • FOR US, WE COULD STILL HAVE A
  • 00:24:48.240 --> 00:24:50.000
  • MORTGAGE, BUT WE WERE NOT TO
  • 00:24:50.000 --> 00:24:51.250
  • BORROW FOR DEPRECIATING ITEMS,
  • 00:24:51.250 --> 00:24:54.150
  • ONLY APPRECIATING ITEMS LIKE A
  • 00:24:54.150 --> 00:24:55.220
  • MORTGAGE ON A HOME.
  • 00:24:55.220 --> 00:24:56.100
  • SO WE HAVE A MORTGAGE THIS DAY,
  • 00:24:56.100 --> 00:24:57.270
  • AND WE HAVE HAD A MORTGAGE, BUT
  • 00:24:57.270 --> 00:24:59.260
  • WE PUT IT ON A 15-YEAR NOTE, AND
  • 00:24:59.260 --> 00:25:01.150
  • WE DO OUR BEST TO PAY IT OFF,
  • 00:25:01.150 --> 00:25:02.280
  • EACH MONTH, OKAY.
  • 00:25:02.280 --> 00:25:05.150
  • SO I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:25:05.150 --> 00:25:06.050
  • BECAUSE, WHEN I SAY THAT, I
  • 00:25:06.050 --> 00:25:06.250
  • DON'T WANT YOU TO-- I WANT YOU
  • 00:25:06.250 --> 00:25:08.290
  • TO LET THE LORD APPLY IT TO YOU
  • 00:25:08.290 --> 00:25:10.240
  • HOW HE APPLIES IT TO YOU, OKAY?
  • 00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:12.170
  • SO, NUMBER ONE, HE SAID, "GET
  • 00:25:12.170 --> 00:25:14.000
  • OUT OF DEBT."
  • 00:25:14.000 --> 00:25:15.000
  • SO, FOR US, THE FIRST THING THAT
  • 00:25:15.000 --> 00:25:16.180
  • WE NEEDED TO DO, WE HAD THIS
  • 00:25:16.180 --> 00:25:17.230
  • CAR THAT WAS TOO BIG FOR US.
  • 00:25:17.230 --> 00:25:20.060
  • THE PAYMENT WAS TOO BIG, AND SO
  • 00:25:20.060 --> 00:25:21.120
  • WE SOLD THAT CAR, AND WE BOUGHT
  • 00:25:21.120 --> 00:25:22.290
  • A CAR FOR CASH: $750.
  • 00:25:22.290 --> 00:25:25.230
  • THAT WAS ALL WE COULD AFFORD.
  • 00:25:25.230 --> 00:25:28.030
  • SO WE BOUGHT A CAR FOR $750, BUT
  • 00:25:28.030 --> 00:25:30.170
  • YOU GOTTA HEAR ME.
  • 00:25:30.170 --> 00:25:32.090
  • WE ACTUALLY LOVED THAT CAR.
  • 00:25:32.090 --> 00:25:34.210
  • I MEAN, WE LOVED IT BECAUSE WE
  • 00:25:34.210 --> 00:25:36.020
  • WERE GETTING OUR FINANCES IN
  • 00:25:36.020 --> 00:25:36.220
  • ORDER.
  • 00:25:36.220 --> 00:25:38.070
  • WE LOVED THAT CAR.
  • 00:25:38.070 --> 00:25:39.000
  • WE PRAYED OVER IT.
  • 00:25:39.000 --> 00:25:40.250
  • WE ANOINTED IT WITH OIL...
  • 00:25:40.250 --> 00:25:42.060
  • ABOUT A QUART A WEEK AND...
  • 00:25:42.060 --> 00:25:43.290
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:25:43.290 --> 00:25:46.140
  • AND WE DROVE THAT CAR.
  • 00:25:46.140 --> 00:25:47.110
  • OKAY.
  • 00:25:47.110 --> 00:25:48.090
  • SECOND THING THE LORD SAID TO ME
  • 00:25:48.090 --> 00:25:49.010
  • WAS "DON'T MANIPULATE."
  • 00:25:49.010 --> 00:25:50.080
  • "DON'T MANIPULATE."
  • 00:25:50.080 --> 00:25:52.230
  • NOW, I WAS IN MINISTRY,
  • 00:25:52.230 --> 00:25:53.110
  • BUT A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE
  • 00:25:53.110 --> 00:25:55.020
  • MANIPULATE FOR MONEY.
  • 00:25:55.020 --> 00:25:56.270
  • AND GOD NEVER BLESSES
  • 00:25:56.270 --> 00:25:57.140
  • MANIPULATION.
  • 00:25:57.140 --> 00:25:58.210
  • "MANIPULATION" COMES FROM A ROOT
  • 00:25:58.210 --> 00:26:00.120
  • WORD THAT MEANS "WITCHCRAFT."
  • 00:26:00.160 --> 00:26:03.160
  • SO YOU CANNOT MANIPULATE.
  • 00:26:03.160 --> 00:26:04.160
  • YOU CAN'T DROP HINTS AND EXPECT
  • 00:26:04.160 --> 00:26:06.270
  • GOD TO PROVIDE FOR YOU.
  • 00:26:06.270 --> 00:26:09.180
  • AND SO, FOR ME, I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:26:09.180 --> 00:26:10.090
  • LORD, HOW DOES THAT WORK OUT?"
  • 00:26:10.090 --> 00:26:11.070
  • HE SAID, "WELL, WHEN SOMEONE
  • 00:26:11.070 --> 00:26:12.240
  • ASKS YOU TO COME SPEAK, THEY
  • 00:26:12.240 --> 00:26:14.050
  • SAY, 'WHAT ARE YOUR FINANCIAL
  • 00:26:14.050 --> 00:26:14.260
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR COMING?'
  • 00:26:14.260 --> 00:26:16.230
  • AND YOU SAY, 'PAY OUR EXPENSES
  • 00:26:16.230 --> 00:26:18.040
  • AND GIVE US AN OFFERING.'"
  • 00:26:18.040 --> 00:26:20.050
  • AND SOME OF MY FRIENDS
  • 00:26:20.050 --> 00:26:20.250
  • WOULD ACTUALLY SAY,
  • 00:26:20.250 --> 00:26:21.150
  • "PAY OUR EXPENSES,
  • 00:26:21.150 --> 00:26:23.170
  • GIVE US AN OFFERING, AND THE
  • 00:26:23.170 --> 00:26:24.200
  • OFFERING HAS TO BE A MINIMUM
  • 00:26:24.200 --> 00:26:26.030
  • OF--" I NEVER EVEN SAID THAT.
  • 00:26:26.030 --> 00:26:28.100
  • I JUST SAID, "WHATEVER, JUST PAY
  • 00:26:28.100 --> 00:26:29.020
  • OUR EXPENSES AND GIVE US AN
  • 00:26:29.020 --> 00:26:29.220
  • OFFERING."
  • 00:26:29.220 --> 00:26:30.080
  • HERE'S WHAT THE LORD SAID TO ME.
  • 00:26:30.080 --> 00:26:31.100
  • HE SAID, "FROM NOW ON, YOU SAY,
  • 00:26:31.100 --> 00:26:32.090
  • 'I HAVE NO FINANCIAL
  • 00:26:32.090 --> 00:26:33.160
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR COMING.'"
  • 00:26:33.160 --> 00:26:35.210
  • BY THE WAY, THIS WAS ABOUT 30
  • 00:26:35.210 --> 00:26:36.120
  • YEARS AGO,
  • 00:26:36.120 --> 00:26:37.120
  • AND I STILL DO THAT TO THIS
  • 00:26:37.120 --> 00:26:38.020
  • DAY.
  • 00:26:38.020 --> 00:26:39.080
  • I HAVE NO FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS
  • 00:26:39.080 --> 00:26:40.000
  • FOR COMING.
  • 00:26:40.000 --> 00:26:42.240
  • AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, "I
  • 00:26:42.240 --> 00:26:43.200
  • WANNA TEACH YOU WHO YOUR
  • 00:26:43.200 --> 00:26:44.280
  • PROVIDER IS, THAT IT'S NOT HOW
  • 00:26:45.170 --> 00:26:48.170
  • YOU ARRANGE THINGS.
  • 00:26:48.170 --> 00:26:49.100
  • IT'S ME.
  • 00:26:49.100 --> 00:26:51.170
  • NOW, AGAIN, OTHER PEOPLE, YOU
  • 00:26:51.170 --> 00:26:52.080
  • CAN DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:26:52.080 --> 00:26:53.100
  • DON'T PUT THIS ON YOU.
  • 00:26:53.100 --> 00:26:54.240
  • LET THE LORD SPEAK TO YOU WHAT
  • 00:26:54.240 --> 00:26:55.150
  • HE WANTS YOU.
  • 00:26:55.150 --> 00:26:56.120
  • SO THIS GUY CALLS ME.
  • 00:26:56.120 --> 00:26:56.290
  • I WILL NEVER FORGET.
  • 00:26:56.290 --> 00:26:58.090
  • FIRST GUY CALLS AND SAYS,
  • 00:26:58.090 --> 00:26:59.240
  • "ROBERT, CAN YOU COME AND
  • 00:26:59.240 --> 00:27:01.100
  • SPEAK?"
  • 00:27:01.100 --> 00:27:02.130
  • I SAID, "YES.
  • 00:27:02.130 --> 00:27:02.280
  • WE WORKED OUT A DAY.
  • 00:27:02.280 --> 00:27:04.150
  • HE SAID, "WHAT ARE YOUR
  • 00:27:04.150 --> 00:27:05.030
  • FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR
  • 00:27:05.030 --> 00:27:05.220
  • COMING?"
  • 00:27:05.220 --> 00:27:06.020
  • I SAID, "I HAVE NO FINANCIAL
  • 00:27:06.020 --> 00:27:06.220
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR COMING."
  • 00:27:06.220 --> 00:27:08.130
  • AND I REMEMBER HE SAID,
  • 00:27:08.130 --> 00:27:09.130
  • "WELL, THAT'S GOOD BECAUSE I
  • 00:27:09.130 --> 00:27:10.280
  • DON'T EVEN THINK WE CAN PAY
  • 00:27:10.280 --> 00:27:12.050
  • YOUR GAS."
  • 00:27:12.050 --> 00:27:14.220
  • NOW, HE DIDN'T SAY,
  • 00:27:14.220 --> 00:27:15.180
  • "PAY YOUR EXPENSES."
  • 00:27:15.180 --> 00:27:16.110
  • HE SAID, "PAY YOUR GAS."
  • 00:27:16.110 --> 00:27:17.270
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHY THAT'S
  • 00:27:17.270 --> 00:27:18.160
  • IMPORTANT.
  • 00:27:18.160 --> 00:27:19.140
  • WE GET IN THAT $750 CAR.
  • 00:27:19.140 --> 00:27:20.150
  • WE START DRIVING.
  • 00:27:20.190 --> 00:27:23.190
  • IT WAS TO OKLAHOMA.
  • 00:27:23.190 --> 00:27:24.090
  • WE START DRIVING TO OKLAHOMA.
  • 00:27:24.090 --> 00:27:25.000
  • I STOPPED TO FILL THE CAR UP
  • 00:27:25.000 --> 00:27:26.030
  • WITH GAS.
  • 00:27:26.030 --> 00:27:27.210
  • I WENT IN TO PAY FOR IT, AND THE
  • 00:27:27.210 --> 00:27:28.280
  • LADY SAID TO ME, "IT'S TAKEN
  • 00:27:28.280 --> 00:27:29.220
  • CARE OF."
  • 00:27:29.220 --> 00:27:31.120
  • I SAID, "WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:27:31.120 --> 00:27:31.280
  • MEAN, 'IT'S TAKEN CARE OF'?"
  • 00:27:31.280 --> 00:27:33.020
  • SHE SAID, "BECAUSE WHEN YOU
  • 00:27:33.020 --> 00:27:33.220
  • PULLED IN, GOD TOLD ME THAT I
  • 00:27:33.220 --> 00:27:34.200
  • WAS TO FILL YOUR CAR UP WITH
  • 00:27:34.200 --> 00:27:35.100
  • GAS."
  • 00:27:35.100 --> 00:27:37.110
  • AND I WENT OUT, AND I GOT
  • 00:27:37.110 --> 00:27:38.150
  • IN THE CAR, AND I SAID, "LORD, I
  • 00:27:38.150 --> 00:27:39.180
  • SURE LIKE DOIN' IT BETTER YOUR
  • 00:27:39.180 --> 00:27:40.090
  • WAY THAN MY WAY."
  • 00:27:40.090 --> 00:27:41.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:27:41.200 --> 00:27:43.160
  • - ROBERT: AND HERE'S THE THIRD
  • 00:27:43.160 --> 00:27:44.080
  • THING THE LORD SAID TO ME:
  • 00:27:44.080 --> 00:27:45.000
  • "GIVE."
  • 00:27:45.000 --> 00:27:47.110
  • SO HE SAID, "GET OUT OF
  • 00:27:47.110 --> 00:27:48.140
  • DEBT," "DON'T MANIPULATE,"
  • 00:27:48.140 --> 00:27:49.080
  • "GIVE."
  • 00:27:49.080 --> 00:27:52.030
  • NOW, I HAVE TO TELL YA
  • 00:27:52.030 --> 00:27:52.270
  • WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:27:52.270 --> 00:27:54.120
  • I SAID TO THE LORD, I SAID,
  • 00:27:54.120 --> 00:27:55.190

  • NOW, PLEASE DON'T GET
  • 00:27:59.030 --> 00:27:59.230
  • OFFENDED BY THIS.
  • 00:27:59.230 --> 00:28:00.230
  • THIS IS JUST THE IMPRESSION
  • 00:28:00.230 --> 00:28:03.220
  • THAT I GOT IN MY SPIRIT WHEN
  • 00:28:03.220 --> 00:28:04.120
  • I SAID THAT.
  • 00:28:04.120 --> 00:28:05.070
  • I SAID, "LORD, I DO GIVE.

  • "HA, HA, HA, HA."
  • 00:28:08.260 --> 00:28:11.260
  • I MEAN, THAT REALLY--
  • 00:28:11.260 --> 00:28:12.210
  • I MEAN, I KIND OF FELT LIKE IT
  • 00:28:12.210 --> 00:28:13.210
  • WAS LIKE, "HA, HA, HA, IDIOT."
  • 00:28:13.210 --> 00:28:14.230
  • YOU KNOW, I MEAN,
  • 00:28:14.230 --> 00:28:15.280

  • 00:28:15.280 --> 00:28:17.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:28:17.170 --> 00:28:18.030
  • I'M LIKE, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN,

  • LORD?
  • 00:28:18.230 --> 00:28:19.050
  • I DO.
  • 00:28:19.050 --> 00:28:20.000
  • I GIVE 10%."
  • 00:28:20.000 --> 00:28:21.100
  • HE SAID, "YOU DON'T GIVE 10%.
  • 00:28:21.100 --> 00:28:22.110

  • HE SAID, "THE 10% IS MINE."
  • 00:28:24.200 --> 00:28:27.200
  • AND WHEN YOU READ THE LANGUAGE
  • 00:28:27.200 --> 00:28:28.190
  • IN THE BIBLE, IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:28:28.190 --> 00:28:29.220
  • RETURN IT, THEN YOU'VE
  • 00:28:29.220 --> 00:28:31.250
  • STOLEN IT.
  • 00:28:31.250 --> 00:28:32.170
  • THAT'S THE LANGUAGE.
  • 00:28:32.170 --> 00:28:34.200
  • I CAN SHOW IT TO YA IN JOSHUA
  • 00:28:34.200 --> 00:28:36.110
  • AND IN MALACHI: "ROBBED" AND
  • 00:28:36.110 --> 00:28:38.010
  • "STOLEN."
  • 00:28:38.010 --> 00:28:39.280
  • THOSE ARE THE TWO WORDS
  • 00:28:39.280 --> 00:28:40.170
  • GOD USES.
  • 00:28:40.170 --> 00:28:43.020
  • HE USED THAT.
  • 00:28:43.020 --> 00:28:44.210
  • SO I SAID, "WELL, LORD, WHAT DO
  • 00:28:44.210 --> 00:28:45.240
  • YOU MEAN, 'GIVE'?"
  • 00:28:45.240 --> 00:28:48.200
  • HE SAID, "I MEAN 'GIVE' OVER AND
  • 00:28:48.200 --> 00:28:49.120
  • ABOVE THE TITHE.
  • 00:28:50.000 --> 00:28:53.000
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU GIVE."
  • 00:28:53.000 --> 00:28:53.260
  • AND I ASKED HIM THREE
  • 00:28:53.260 --> 00:28:54.150
  • VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS.
  • 00:28:54.150 --> 00:28:55.110
  • I SAID, "WELL, LORD, HOW WILL I
  • 00:28:55.110 --> 00:28:56.120
  • KNOW WHEN TO GIVE?
  • 00:28:56.120 --> 00:28:57.100
  • HOW WILL I KNOW WHERE TO GIVE,
  • 00:28:57.100 --> 00:28:58.140
  • AND HOW WILL I KNOW HOW MUCH TO
  • 00:28:58.140 --> 00:28:59.060
  • GIVE?"
  • 00:28:59.060 --> 00:29:00.170
  • AREN'T THOSE IMPORTANT
  • 00:29:00.170 --> 00:29:01.060
  • QUESTIONS?
  • 00:29:01.060 --> 00:29:02.060
  • LISTEN TO HIS VERY SIMPLE

  • ANSWER.
  • 00:29:03.030 --> 00:29:03.270
  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID: "I'LL TELL

  • THE NEW DIRECTION FOR TBN, AND
  • 00:29:19.140 --> 00:29:20.260
  • IT'S NOT SO MUCH A NEW DIRECTION

  • IN PRINCIPLE, BUT IT IS IN

  • STARTED THE NETWORK, THEY WERE
  • 00:29:31.240 --> 00:29:32.150
  • ASKING PEOPLE TO GIVE BECAUSE
  • 00:29:32.150 --> 00:29:33.060
  • THEY HAD A VISION OF CHRISTIAN

  • TRYING TO REACH TUNED IN, THEY
  • 00:29:47.100 --> 00:29:48.120

  • 00:33:23.160 --> 00:33:25.150
  • THEY DON'T BECOME SINNERS
  • 00:33:25.150 --> 00:33:27.040
  • BECAUSE THEY SIN.
  • 00:33:27.040 --> 00:33:29.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "BY ONE MAN'S
  • 00:33:29.080 --> 00:33:31.090
  • DISOBEDIENCE WE ARE ALL MADE
  • 00:33:31.090 --> 00:33:32.140
  • SINNERS."
  • 00:33:32.190 --> 00:33:35.190
  • AMEN?
  • 00:33:35.190 --> 00:33:37.140
  • BY THE SAME TOKEN, BY THE
  • 00:33:37.140 --> 00:33:38.030
  • OBEDIENCE OF ONE MAN,
  • 00:33:38.250 --> 00:33:41.250
  • HALLELUJAH, WE ARE ALL MADE
  • 00:33:41.250 --> 00:33:42.160
  • RIGHTEOUS!
  • 00:33:42.160 --> 00:33:44.000
  • - MATT: YOU COULD'VE PREACHED
  • 00:33:50.190 --> 00:33:51.100
  • COLOSSIANS, AND YOU COULD'VE
  • 00:33:51.100 --> 00:33:53.070
  • WORKED YOUR WAY THROUGH BUT
  • 00:33:53.070 --> 00:33:55.010
  • YOU--
  • 00:33:55.010 --> 00:33:55.140
  • - JOSEPH: AND I DO!
  • 00:33:55.140 --> 00:33:56.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:33:56.000 --> 00:33:57.210
  • - MATT: -- YOU CHOSE, THOUGH,
  • 00:33:57.210 --> 00:33:58.210
  • TO ALWAYS FIND THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:33:58.210 --> 00:34:00.190
  • GRACE INSIDE OF THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:34:00.220 --> 00:34:03.220
  • SO WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?
  • 00:34:04.050 --> 00:34:07.050
  • - JOSEPH: I THINK PART OF IT'S
  • 00:34:07.050 --> 00:34:07.270
  • YOU'RE LOOKING AT A MAN WHO
  • 00:34:11.010 --> 00:34:11.210
  • REALLY BELIEVES LIKE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:34:11.210 --> 00:34:12.240
  • TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD, YOU NEED
  • 00:34:12.240 --> 00:34:13.160
  • SOMEHOW IT DIDN'T BOTHER MOST
  • 00:34:16.290 --> 00:34:17.200
  • PEOPLE, BUT IT BOTHERED ME AS A
  • 00:34:17.200 --> 00:34:18.120
  • 17-YEAR-OLD-- I DON'T KNOW WHY,
  • 00:34:18.120 --> 00:34:20.270
  • BUT WHEN I HEARD THE TEACHING
  • 00:34:20.270 --> 00:34:22.230
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME, "UNLESS YOU
  • 00:34:22.230 --> 00:34:24.070
  • CONFESS EVERY SIN, YOU'RE OUT OF
  • 00:34:24.070 --> 00:34:25.250
  • FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD."
  • 00:34:27.000 --> 00:34:30.000
  • AND, YOU KNOW, BACK IN
  • 00:34:30.000 --> 00:34:30.180
  • SINGAPORE, WE HAVE TO SERVE
  • 00:34:30.180 --> 00:34:32.150
  • OUR NATIONAL SERVICE IN
  • 00:34:32.150 --> 00:34:33.040
  • THE ARMY.
  • 00:34:33.040 --> 00:34:34.170
  • EVERY 17-YEAR-OLD HAS TO GO
  • 00:34:34.170 --> 00:34:35.070
  • THERE.
  • 00:34:35.070 --> 00:34:36.110
  • I NEEDED GOD'S INTERVENTION.
  • 00:34:36.110 --> 00:34:37.010
  • I NEEDED HIS FAVOR.
  • 00:34:37.010 --> 00:34:37.170
  • I NEEDED HIS HELP IN THE ARMY.
  • 00:34:37.170 --> 00:34:38.170
  • SO I'LL BE RUNNING, AND THE
  • 00:34:38.170 --> 00:34:40.270
  • INSTRUCTORS WILL BE USING
  • 00:34:40.270 --> 00:34:42.040
  • PROFANITIES AND ALL THAT, AND I
  • 00:34:42.040 --> 00:34:43.200
  • GET ANGRY, AND I GET BITTER, AND
  • 00:34:43.200 --> 00:34:44.210
  • I SAID, "OH, NO, I'M OUT OF
  • 00:34:44.210 --> 00:34:45.200
  • FELLOWSHIP."
  • 00:34:45.200 --> 00:34:47.190
  • SO I START CONFESSING WHILE
  • 00:34:47.190 --> 00:34:48.090
  • I'M HOLDING MY M16, RUNNING.
  • 00:34:48.090 --> 00:34:50.070
  • I'LL BE SAYING, "NO, LORD,
  • 00:34:50.070 --> 00:34:51.230
  • FORGIVE ME FOR HAVING THAT
  • 00:34:51.230 --> 00:34:53.010
  • RESENTMENT AGAINST--" I'M
  • 00:34:53.010 --> 00:34:55.290
  • CONFESSING MY SINS ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:34:55.290 --> 00:34:56.210
  • - MATT: ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:34:56.210 --> 00:34:57.100
  • - JOSEPH: IF I'M TALKING TO
  • 00:34:57.100 --> 00:34:58.090
  • YOU, AND I FELT LIKE I'M--
  • 00:34:58.090 --> 00:35:00.060
  • I NEED TO STOP IN FRONT OF YOU
  • 00:35:00.060 --> 00:35:01.050
  • AND GO LIKE THIS...
  • 00:35:01.050 --> 00:35:01.210
  • [WHISPERING] ...CONFESSING MY
  • 00:35:01.210 --> 00:35:02.120
  • SINS.
  • 00:35:02.120 --> 00:35:03.290
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS DOESN'T
  • 00:35:03.290 --> 00:35:04.220
  • BOTHER MOST PEOPLE, BUT IT'S
  • 00:35:04.220 --> 00:35:06.050
  • SORT OF LIKE THIS NEED TO BE
  • 00:35:06.050 --> 00:35:06.250
  • RIGHT WITH GOD.
  • 00:35:06.250 --> 00:35:08.010
  • I WAS IN A NEVER-ENDING CYCLE OF
  • 00:35:09.000 --> 00:35:12.000
  • DEPRESSION AND, YOU KNOW, ALL
  • 00:35:12.000 --> 00:35:13.240
  • WANTING TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD
  • 00:35:13.240 --> 00:35:15.030
  • UNTIL ONE DAY, YOU KNOW, IT ALL
  • 00:35:15.030 --> 00:35:16.230
  • CAME TO AN END.
  • 00:35:16.230 --> 00:35:18.260
  • I THOUGHT I WOULD LOSE MY MIND.
  • 00:35:18.260 --> 00:35:19.190
  • I NEARLY DID, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:35:19.190 --> 00:35:20.290
  • OF COURSE, SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE
  • 00:35:20.290 --> 00:35:21.220
  • THAT I'VE GONE THAT POINT
  • 00:35:21.220 --> 00:35:22.130
  • ALREADY, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:35:22.130 --> 00:35:24.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:35:24.080 --> 00:35:24.290
  • WE'RE ALL IN THE SAME THING.
  • 00:35:24.290 --> 00:35:25.190
  • BUT I REMEMBER WHEN GOD OPENED
  • 00:35:25.190 --> 00:35:27.220
  • MY EYES TO THE FACT THAT
  • 00:35:27.220 --> 00:35:29.110
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A GIFT THAT WAS
  • 00:35:29.110 --> 00:35:32.030
  • PURCHASED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
  • 00:35:32.260 --> 00:35:35.260
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS PERCEIVED MANY
  • 00:35:36.000 --> 00:35:39.000
  • A TIMES AS RIGHT-DOING, ALL
  • 00:35:39.000 --> 00:35:40.000
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:35:40.000 --> 00:35:41.070
  • BUT IN THE SCRIPTURES, IN THE
  • 00:35:41.070 --> 00:35:42.240
  • NEW TESTAMENT, RIGHTEOUSNESS IS
  • 00:35:42.240 --> 00:35:43.220
  • A GIFT.
  • 00:35:43.220 --> 00:35:45.000
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS IN ROMANS
  • 00:35:45.000 --> 00:35:46.140
  • 5:17, THAT "BY ONE MAN'S OFFENSE
  • 00:35:46.140 --> 00:35:49.020
  • DEATH REIGNED BY ONE, MUCH MORE
  • 00:35:49.020 --> 00:35:51.070
  • THOSE WHO RECEIVE ABUNDANCE OF
  • 00:35:51.070 --> 00:35:51.280
  • GRACE AND THE GIFT OF
  • 00:35:51.280 --> 00:35:54.170
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL REIGN IN
  • 00:35:54.170 --> 00:35:55.150
  • LIFE."
  • 00:35:55.150 --> 00:35:56.130
  • SO THESE WERE THE TWO
  • 00:35:56.130 --> 00:35:57.230
  • THINGS THAT GOD-- YOU KNOW?
  • 00:35:57.230 --> 00:35:58.130
  • AND I LEARNED THAT FROM THE WORD
  • 00:35:58.130 --> 00:35:59.220
  • OF FAITH, ACTUALLY, THE FIRST
  • 00:35:59.220 --> 00:36:01.010
  • TIME I GOT HOLD OF THAT VERSE.
  • 00:36:01.010 --> 00:36:01.220
  • YOUR DAD WAS PART OF IT, YOUR
  • 00:36:01.220 --> 00:36:03.200
  • DAD AND BROTHER HAGIN AND ALL
  • 00:36:03.200 --> 00:36:04.110
  • THE REST, AND IT WAS RIGHT IN
  • 00:36:04.110 --> 00:36:06.210
  • FRONT OF ME ALWAYS, ROMANS 5:17.
  • 00:36:06.210 --> 00:36:09.150
  • THESE TWO GIFTS, IF YOU HAVE
  • 00:36:09.150 --> 00:36:11.050
  • THESE TWO GIFTS, ABUNDANCE OF
  • 00:36:11.050 --> 00:36:12.080
  • GRACE-- YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES
  • 00:36:12.080 --> 00:36:13.230
  • PEOPLE SAY, "YOU PREACH TOO MUCH
  • 00:36:13.230 --> 00:36:14.210
  • ON GRACE."
  • 00:36:14.210 --> 00:36:15.080
  • WELL, WE NEED AN ABUNDANCE OF
  • 00:36:15.080 --> 00:36:16.210
  • GRACE TO REIGN IN LIFE.
  • 00:36:16.210 --> 00:36:18.250
  • SO ABUNDANCE OF GRACE AND THE
  • 00:36:18.250 --> 00:36:20.140
  • GIFT, NOT THE REWARD, THE GIFT
  • 00:36:20.140 --> 00:36:21.080
  • OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:36:23.030 --> 00:36:26.030
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:36:26.030 --> 00:36:27.060
  • IF YOU ACCEPT THIS, YOU WILL
  • 00:36:27.060 --> 00:36:27.260
  • REIGN IN LIFE.
  • 00:36:27.260 --> 00:36:28.130
  • SO I REALIZE THAT, "WAIT A
  • 00:36:28.130 --> 00:36:29.020
  • MINUTE, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:36:29.020 --> 00:36:29.190
  • WHAT IS THE GIFT OF
  • 00:36:29.190 --> 00:36:30.180
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS?"
  • 00:36:30.180 --> 00:36:31.040
  • I WAS SHARING WITH THE PASTORS
  • 00:36:31.040 --> 00:36:32.210
  • THIS MORNING THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:36:33.160 --> 00:36:36.160
  • EVEN FOR AMERICA, REGARDLESS OF
  • 00:36:36.160 --> 00:36:37.080
  • WHO RUNS AMERICA, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:36:37.080 --> 00:36:38.010
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION,"
  • 00:36:42.120 --> 00:36:44.010
  • NOT THE ONES RUNNING IT.
  • 00:36:44.010 --> 00:36:44.190
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:36:44.190 --> 00:36:46.100
  • AND RIGHTEOUSNESS TO GOD IS A
  • 00:36:46.100 --> 00:36:47.010
  • SO IT'S THE BELIEVERS, ALL
  • 00:36:49.190 --> 00:36:50.080
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:36:50.080 --> 00:36:50.170
  • THE MORE WE PREACH THE GOSPEL
  • 00:36:50.170 --> 00:36:51.080
  • LIKE TBN IS DOING,
  • 00:36:51.080 --> 00:36:52.110
  • THE MORE PEOPLE ARE SAVED,
  • 00:36:52.110 --> 00:36:54.170
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL EXALT
  • 00:36:54.170 --> 00:36:55.050
  • THIS NATION.
  • 00:36:55.050 --> 00:36:56.020
  • IT'S FOR THE LACK OF THE
  • 00:36:56.020 --> 00:36:58.090
  • PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL, YOU
  • 00:36:58.090 --> 00:36:59.040
  • KNOW?
  • 00:36:59.040 --> 00:36:59.200
  • WHOEVER WE PUT IN, YOU KNOW, IN
  • 00:36:59.200 --> 00:37:00.140
  • THE WHITE HOUSE OR WHATEVER,
  • 00:37:00.140 --> 00:37:01.260
  • THAT'S SIGNIFICANT, BUT I
  • 00:37:01.260 --> 00:37:03.000
  • BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO GET BACK
  • 00:37:03.000 --> 00:37:04.190
  • TO THE GOSPEL, AND THE GOSPEL IS
  • 00:37:04.190 --> 00:37:06.030
  • THE GOSPEL OF GRACE.
  • 00:37:07.040 --> 00:37:10.040
  • PAUL CALLS IT "THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:37:10.040 --> 00:37:10.240
  • GRACE," "THE GOSPEL OF PEACE."
  • 00:37:10.240 --> 00:37:12.230
  • THERE'S NO OTHER TERM FOR IT.
  • 00:37:12.230 --> 00:37:14.030
  • SO WHEN I FIRST DISCOVERED THIS
  • 00:37:14.030 --> 00:37:15.060
  • AS A TEENAGER, YOU KNOW, IT
  • 00:37:15.060 --> 00:37:16.180
  • - NARRATOR: "I BECAME A SERVANT
  • 00:37:22.230 --> 00:37:23.150
  • OF THIS GOSPEL BY THE GIFT OF
  • 00:37:23.150 --> 00:37:24.060
  • GOD'S GRACE GIVEN ME THROUGH THE
  • 00:37:24.060 --> 00:37:24.280
  • - MATT: PASTOR ROBERT, LOOK, I
  • 00:37:30.290 --> 00:37:31.210
  • DON'T KNOW HOW IN GOD'S GREEN
  • 00:37:31.210 --> 00:37:34.180
  • EARTH THE MESSAGE OF GRACE FELT
  • 00:37:38.010 --> 00:37:41.010
  • NEW BECAUSE IT IS THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:37:41.010 --> 00:37:42.250
  • OF EVERYTHING, BUT SOMEHOW WE
  • 00:37:42.250 --> 00:37:45.190
  • ARE HEARING THAT AS MINISTRIES
  • 00:37:45.190 --> 00:37:48.180
  • ARE WRITING BOOKS.
  • 00:37:49.140 --> 00:37:52.140
  • AND MAX LUCADO WROTE A BOOK ON
  • 00:37:52.140 --> 00:37:53.050
  • GRACE AND JOSEPH PRINCE AND
  • 00:37:53.050 --> 00:37:54.240
  • OTHERS THAT ARE IN OUR SPHERE
  • 00:37:54.240 --> 00:37:57.200
  • AND ON CHRISTIAN TV AND A PART
  • 00:37:57.200 --> 00:37:59.200
  • OF THE TRINITY FAMILY, THAT IT'S
  • 00:37:59.200 --> 00:38:02.060
  • SOMEHOW-- THE MESSAGE OF GRACE
  • 00:38:02.210 --> 00:38:05.210
  • SEEMS NEW, OKAY?
  • 00:38:05.210 --> 00:38:08.090
  • I'M NOT SURE ANYONE CAN ANSWER
  • 00:38:08.090 --> 00:38:09.000
  • THAT, BUT ULTIMATELY THE
  • 00:38:09.000 --> 00:38:09.180
  • IMPORTANCE OF THE OLD, OLD STORY
  • 00:38:10.030 --> 00:38:13.030
  • OF AMAZING GRACE, PLEASE.
  • 00:38:13.030 --> 00:38:15.030
  • - ROBERT: WELL, GRACE IS THE
  • 00:38:15.030 --> 00:38:17.270
  • FOUNDATION, AND WE REALLY GOT
  • 00:38:17.270 --> 00:38:18.240
  • AWAY FROM IT IN THE BODY OF
  • 00:38:18.240 --> 00:38:19.140
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:38:19.140 --> 00:38:20.030
  • THAT'S WHY IT SEEMS NEW.
  • 00:38:20.030 --> 00:38:21.180
  • WE BEGAN TO TALK ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:38:21.180 --> 00:38:23.070
  • GRACE DOES RATHER THAN WHAT
  • 00:38:23.070 --> 00:38:24.160
  • GRACE IS, THAT GRACE EMPOWERS US
  • 00:38:24.160 --> 00:38:26.230
  • TO LIVE A HOLY LIFE.
  • 00:38:26.230 --> 00:38:29.080
  • AND IT DOES, BUT WHEN YOU THINK
  • 00:38:29.080 --> 00:38:30.000
  • ABOUT THAT, THEN WHEN YOU DON'T
  • 00:38:30.000 --> 00:38:32.010
  • LIVE THE HOLY LIFE, THEN YOU
  • 00:38:32.010 --> 00:38:33.200
  • FEEL BAD.
  • 00:38:33.200 --> 00:38:35.010
  • YOU FEEL HORRIBLE.
  • 00:38:35.010 --> 00:38:35.170
  • SO GRACE DOES A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:38:35.170 --> 00:38:38.130
  • FOR US, BUT WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT
  • 00:38:38.130 --> 00:38:40.120
  • IT IS, AND IT IS THE UNMERITED,
  • 00:38:40.120 --> 00:38:43.120
  • UNDESERVED FAVOR OF GOD.
  • 00:38:44.030 --> 00:38:47.030
  • THAT'S WHAT ALLOWS ME TO LIVE A
  • 00:38:47.030 --> 00:38:48.190
  • BETTER LIFE TO-- YOU KNOW, WHEN
  • 00:38:48.190 --> 00:38:50.260
  • YOU THINK ABOUT EVEN THE LAW,
  • 00:38:50.260 --> 00:38:53.040
  • AND WE THINK, "WELL, I'M NOT
  • 00:38:53.040 --> 00:38:55.240
  • GUILTY OF THAT," BUT JESUS
  • 00:38:55.240 --> 00:38:57.120
  • TAKES, LIKE, ADULTERY, AND HE
  • 00:38:57.120 --> 00:38:58.250
  • PUTS IT DOWN TO YOUR THOUGHTS.
  • 00:38:58.250 --> 00:39:00.090
  • YOU KNOW, STEALING COULD BE
  • 00:39:00.090 --> 00:39:01.140
  • STEALING TIME FROM YOUR
  • 00:39:01.140 --> 00:39:02.110
  • EMPLOYER.
  • 00:39:02.110 --> 00:39:03.170
  • COVETING COULD JUST BE, AGAIN,
  • 00:39:03.170 --> 00:39:04.280
  • THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:39:04.280 --> 00:39:06.090
  • HOUSE COMPARED TO YOUR
  • 00:39:06.090 --> 00:39:07.090
  • NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE OR YOUR
  • 00:39:07.090 --> 00:39:07.280
  • FRIEND'S NEW HOUSE OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:39:07.280 --> 00:39:09.280
  • "SO I CAN'T LIVE UP TO IT.
  • 00:39:09.280 --> 00:39:12.030
  • I JUST CAN'T DO IT."
  • 00:39:12.030 --> 00:39:13.220
  • AND WHAT GRACE SAYS TO ME IS,
  • 00:39:13.220 --> 00:39:15.040
  • "I KNOW YOU CAN'T LIVE UP
  • 00:39:15.040 --> 00:39:16.150
  • TO IT, AND I ACCEPT YOU JUST
  • 00:39:16.150 --> 00:39:17.140
  • LIKE YOU ARE,
  • 00:39:17.140 --> 00:39:19.150
  • AND, YES, I'LL HELP YOU WORK ON
  • 00:39:19.150 --> 00:39:21.030
  • THESE AREAS.
  • 00:39:21.030 --> 00:39:21.200
  • BUT EVEN WHEN YOU FALL, YOU'RE
  • 00:39:21.200 --> 00:39:23.150
  • COMPLETELY FORGIVEN.
  • 00:39:23.150 --> 00:39:25.110
  • YOU'RE COMPLETELY LOVED."
  • 00:39:25.110 --> 00:39:27.080
  • AND THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING
  • 00:39:27.080 --> 00:39:28.160
  • NOW WITH JOSEPH AND OTHERS
  • 00:39:28.160 --> 00:39:30.110
  • IS THEY'RE SAYING,
  • 00:39:30.110 --> 00:39:31.130
  • "NO, LET'S BACK UP FOR A
  • 00:39:31.130 --> 00:39:32.010
  • MINUTE.
  • 00:39:32.010 --> 00:39:33.200
  • BEFORE WE TALK ABOUT WHAT GRACE
  • 00:39:33.200 --> 00:39:34.230
  • DOES, LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:39:34.230 --> 00:39:35.130
  • GRACE IS--" AND YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:39:35.130 --> 00:39:37.150
  • GIVIN' SOMEBODY HOPE.
  • 00:39:37.150 --> 00:39:38.050
  • THAT GIVES US ALL HOPE THAT GOD
  • 00:39:38.050 --> 00:39:40.120
  • ACCEPTS ME UNCONDITIONALLY, AND
  • 00:39:40.120 --> 00:39:42.250
  • JESUS PAID THE FULL PRICE FOR ME
  • 00:39:42.290 --> 00:39:45.290
  • - NARRATOR: "I AM ASTONISHED
  • 00:39:49.280 --> 00:39:50.190
  • THAT YOU ARE SO QUICKLY
  • 00:39:50.190 --> 00:39:51.140
  • DESERTING THE ONE WHO CALLED YOU
  • 00:39:51.140 --> 00:39:52.170
  • TO LIVE IN THE GRACE OF CHRIST
  • 00:39:52.170 --> 00:39:53.250
  • AND ARE TURNING TO A DIFFERENT
  • 00:39:53.250 --> 00:39:55.030
  • - JOSEPH: YOU KNOW, SOMEHOW OUR
  • 00:40:01.020 --> 00:40:01.260
  • THINKING HAS BEEN SO WARPED,
  • 00:40:01.260 --> 00:40:02.160
  • THAT WE ARE THINKING IN LINE
  • 00:40:02.160 --> 00:40:05.070
  • WHERE THE DEVIL WANTS.
  • 00:40:05.070 --> 00:40:07.170
  • YOU KNOW, HE'S PUT HEDGES
  • 00:40:07.170 --> 00:40:08.060
  • AGAINST HOPE, AGAINST GRACE SO
  • 00:40:08.060 --> 00:40:09.270
  • MUCH SO THAT, IF ANYONE PREACH
  • 00:40:09.270 --> 00:40:10.180
  • IT, YOUR NAME WILL BE DRAGGED
  • 00:40:10.180 --> 00:40:11.200
  • YOU'LL BE-- BECAUSE PEOPLE
  • 00:40:16.170 --> 00:40:17.060
  • CANNOT BELIEVE, "IS GOD THAT
  • 00:40:17.060 --> 00:40:17.280
  • GOOD?"
  • 00:40:17.280 --> 00:40:19.120
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:40:19.120 --> 00:40:20.220
  • - JOSEPH: BUT YOU THINK ABOUT
  • 00:40:20.220 --> 00:40:21.280
  • IT, YOU LOOK AT SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:40:21.280 --> 00:40:22.260
  • FOR EXAMPLE, THE APOSTLE PETER,
  • 00:40:22.260 --> 00:40:24.120
  • WHEN ONE OF THE FIRST TIMES HE
  • 00:40:24.120 --> 00:40:25.230
  • MET JESUS, RIGHT, JESUS SAYS,
  • 00:40:25.230 --> 00:40:27.060
  • "LET'S GO FISHING."
  • 00:40:27.060 --> 00:40:28.160
  • HE GAVE HIM A NET-BREAKING,
  • 00:40:30.280 --> 00:40:31.180
  • BOAT-SINKING LOAD OF FISHES.
  • 00:40:31.180 --> 00:40:34.100
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO PETER?
  • 00:40:34.100 --> 00:40:34.280
  • HE FELL AT HIS FEET AND SAID,
  • 00:40:34.280 --> 00:40:35.190
  • "DEPART FROM ME.
  • 00:40:35.190 --> 00:40:37.220
  • I'M A SINFUL MAN."
  • 00:40:37.220 --> 00:40:39.130
  • NO LAWS WERE GIVEN.
  • 00:40:39.130 --> 00:40:41.160
  • JESUS DIDN'T TELL HIM WHAT'S
  • 00:40:41.160 --> 00:40:43.070
  • WRONG WITH HIM, DIDN'T POINT OUT
  • 00:40:43.070 --> 00:40:43.290
  • HIS SINS...JUST BLESSED HIM,
  • 00:40:43.290 --> 00:40:45.030
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:40:45.030 --> 00:40:46.290
  • BUT WHAT WAS THE SENSE THAT HE
  • 00:40:46.290 --> 00:40:48.100
  • HAD?
  • 00:40:48.100 --> 00:40:49.260
  • WHAT WAS THE SENSE?
  • 00:40:49.260 --> 00:40:51.040
  • THE LOVE OF JESUS?
  • 00:40:51.040 --> 00:40:52.270
  • NO, HE FEARED THE LORD BECAUSE
  • 00:40:52.270 --> 00:40:54.100
  • OF HIS SIN: "DEPART FROM ME.
  • 00:40:54.100 --> 00:40:55.140
  • I'M A SINFUL MAN."
  • 00:40:55.140 --> 00:40:57.070
  • DO WE NEED TO TEACH PEOPLE
  • 00:40:57.070 --> 00:40:58.050
  • THE FEAR OF GOD?
  • 00:40:58.050 --> 00:41:00.240
  • ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT
  • 00:41:00.240 --> 00:41:01.140
  • HAPPENED TO ANYONE IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:41:01.140 --> 00:41:02.210
  • WHEN A HEAVENLY BEING APPEARS IN
  • 00:41:02.210 --> 00:41:05.110
  • THEIR BEDROOM, THEIR FIRST
  • 00:41:05.110 --> 00:41:06.070
  • REACTION IS WHAT?
  • 00:41:06.070 --> 00:41:07.050
  • FEAR.
  • 00:41:07.050 --> 00:41:08.160
  • IN FACT, EVEN AN ANGEL, RIGHT?
  • 00:41:08.160 --> 00:41:09.070
  • AN ANGEL OF HEAVEN WOULD SAY,
  • 00:41:09.070 --> 00:41:11.010
  • "FEAR NOT."
  • 00:41:11.010 --> 00:41:12.160
  • NOW, IF GOD APPEARS
  • 00:41:12.160 --> 00:41:14.070
  • IN THE MOST WICKED SINNER, YOU
  • 00:41:14.070 --> 00:41:16.090
  • KNOW, IN TOWN, IN HIS BEDROOM
  • 00:41:16.090 --> 00:41:18.110
  • TONIGHT, WHAT DO YOU RECKON HIS
  • 00:41:18.110 --> 00:41:20.080
  • FIRST REACTION WILL BE?
  • 00:41:20.080 --> 00:41:22.020
  • [SINGING A CAPPELLA]
  • 00:41:22.020 --> 00:41:22.190
  • THY LOVING KINDNESS...
  • 00:41:22.190 --> 00:41:24.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:41:24.040 --> 00:41:24.280
  • - JOSEPH: I RECKON NOT!
  • 00:41:24.280 --> 00:41:27.080
  • I THINK HIS FIRST REACTION WILL
  • 00:41:27.080 --> 00:41:28.000
  • BE FEAR.
  • 00:41:28.000 --> 00:41:28.290
  • "DEPART FROM ME.
  • 00:41:28.290 --> 00:41:29.130
  • I'M A SINFUL MAN."
  • 00:41:29.130 --> 00:41:30.260
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO TEACH PEOPLE
  • 00:41:30.260 --> 00:41:31.170
  • FEAR OF GOD.
  • 00:41:31.170 --> 00:41:34.140
  • THEY INSTINCTIVELY-- THE REASON
  • 00:41:34.140 --> 00:41:36.050
  • THEY DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE GOD,
  • 00:41:36.050 --> 00:41:37.200
  • BECAUSE THEY FEAR GOD.
  • 00:41:37.200 --> 00:41:38.140
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:41:38.140 --> 00:41:39.250
  • - JOSEPH: BUT WHAT WE NEED TO
  • 00:41:39.250 --> 00:41:42.040
  • TEACH PEOPLE IS THE LOVE OF GOD,
  • 00:41:42.040 --> 00:41:42.270
  • THE LOVE OF GOD FOR THEM.
  • 00:41:42.270 --> 00:41:43.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:41:43.250 --> 00:41:45.230
  • NOW, THAT TAKES THE
  • 00:41:45.230 --> 00:41:47.010
  • HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:41:47.010 --> 00:41:47.260
  • THAT TAKES THE ANOINTING OF GOD
  • 00:41:47.260 --> 00:41:48.290
  • BECAUSE PETER, 3 & 1/2 YEARS
  • 00:41:48.290 --> 00:41:51.080
  • AFTER JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:41:51.080 --> 00:41:53.110
  • REMEMBER THAT?
  • 00:41:53.110 --> 00:41:55.050
  • NOW, HE'S WALKED WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:41:55.050 --> 00:41:56.200
  • AND HE DENIED KNOWING THE LORD
  • 00:41:56.200 --> 00:41:57.150
  • THREE TIMES.
  • 00:41:57.150 --> 00:41:59.060
  • SO 1 WEEK AFTER JESUS ROSE FROM
  • 00:41:59.060 --> 00:42:01.110
  • THE DEAD, JESUS WAS WALKING BY
  • 00:42:01.110 --> 00:42:02.100
  • THE BEACH, AND THEY WERE FISHING
  • 00:42:02.180 --> 00:42:05.180
  • ALL NIGHT.
  • 00:42:05.180 --> 00:42:07.140
  • THEY CAUGHT NOTHING.
  • 00:42:07.140 --> 00:42:09.050
  • AND THEN JESUS SAYS, "CAST YOUR
  • 00:42:09.050 --> 00:42:10.080
  • NET ON THE RIGHT SIDE."
  • 00:42:10.080 --> 00:42:12.030
  • NOW, JOHN WAS THE FIRST
  • 00:42:12.030 --> 00:42:13.140
  • ONE TO REALIZE THAT
  • 00:42:13.140 --> 00:42:14.060
  • IT WAS JESUS.
  • 00:42:14.060 --> 00:42:15.220
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO PETER?
  • 00:42:15.220 --> 00:42:16.230
  • WHAT DID PETER DO?
  • 00:42:16.230 --> 00:42:18.030
  • HE JUMPED INTO THE WATER TO GO
  • 00:42:18.030 --> 00:42:18.240
  • TO JESUS.
  • 00:42:19.250 --> 00:42:22.250
  • NOW, WHAT MOTIVATED HIM TO DO
  • 00:42:22.250 --> 00:42:23.180
  • THAT?
  • 00:42:23.180 --> 00:42:25.030
  • IT WAS A REVELATION OF HIS LOVE
  • 00:42:25.030 --> 00:42:26.000
  • BECAUSE, PRIOR TO THIS, JESUS
  • 00:42:26.120 --> 00:42:29.120
  • HAD A SECRET MEETING, NOT
  • 00:42:29.120 --> 00:42:30.240
  • REVEALED IN THE SCRIPTURE, BUT
  • 00:42:30.240 --> 00:42:33.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THE ANGEL SAYS,
  • 00:42:33.160 --> 00:42:34.230
  • "GO AND TELL--" PETER HAD A
  • 00:42:34.230 --> 00:42:35.250
  • MEETING WITH JESUS.
  • 00:42:35.250 --> 00:42:36.280
  • JESUS RESTORED HIM ALREADY.
  • 00:42:36.280 --> 00:42:38.130
  • SO HERE WHEN HE SAW JESUS, IF HE
  • 00:42:38.130 --> 00:42:40.240
  • HAD THE FEAR OF GOD, HE'LL JUMP
  • 00:42:40.240 --> 00:42:43.000
  • THE OTHER WAY--
  • 00:42:43.000 --> 00:42:45.020
  • - MATT: YEAH.
  • 00:42:45.020 --> 00:42:46.100
  • - JOSEPH: -- THE OTHER SIDE OF
  • 00:42:46.100 --> 00:42:47.030
  • THE BOAT.
  • 00:42:47.030 --> 00:42:48.050
  • BUT HE JUMPED TOWARDS THE LORD
  • 00:42:48.050 --> 00:42:50.180
  • BECAUSE, THIS TIME, HE HAS GROWN
  • 00:42:50.180 --> 00:42:51.130
  • IN THE LORD.
  • 00:42:51.130 --> 00:42:52.230
  • AND WHAT'S THE SENSE ABOUT THE
  • 00:42:52.230 --> 00:42:53.220
  • LORD?
  • 00:42:53.220 --> 00:42:54.200
  • HIS LOVE.
  • 00:42:54.200 --> 00:42:56.260
  • SO THE MARK, THE MAIN
  • 00:42:56.260 --> 00:42:59.250
  • CHARACTERISTIC OF SOMEONE WHO IS
  • 00:42:59.250 --> 00:43:02.130
  • GROWING IN THE LORD IS THAT HE'S
  • 00:43:02.130 --> 00:43:03.200
  • MORE CONSCIOUS OF THE LORD'S
  • 00:43:03.200 --> 00:43:04.160
  • LOVE FOR HIM.
  • 00:43:04.160 --> 00:43:06.210
  • AND WE THINK WE HAVE IT UPSIDE--
  • 00:43:06.210 --> 00:43:09.120
  • YOU KNOW, IN REVERSE.
  • 00:43:09.120 --> 00:43:11.250
  • WE THINK THAT, "WELL, LOVE AND
  • 00:43:11.250 --> 00:43:12.160
  • GRACE, THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:43:12.160 --> 00:43:14.180
  • THAT'S GOOD, AMEN.
  • 00:43:14.180 --> 00:43:15.220
  • I DON'T DENY THAT, BUT WE'LL
  • 00:43:15.220 --> 00:43:17.020
  • TEACH PEOPLE THE FEAR OF GOD!
  • 00:43:17.020 --> 00:43:18.040
  • WE'RE GONNA PUT THE FEAR--" NO,
  • 00:43:18.040 --> 00:43:20.040
  • WE ARE ACTUALLY REVERSING THE
  • 00:43:20.040 --> 00:43:20.290
  • ENTIRE THING.
  • 00:43:20.290 --> 00:43:23.050
  • EVEN THE SINNER TODAY,
  • 00:43:23.050 --> 00:43:24.220
  • INSTINCTIVELY THEY KNOW-- IF
  • 00:43:24.220 --> 00:43:26.170
  • THEY KNOW GOD EXISTED, THEY
  • 00:43:26.170 --> 00:43:28.070
  • DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH GOD
  • 00:43:28.070 --> 00:43:29.150
  • BECAUSE THEY FEAR HIM.
  • 00:43:29.150 --> 00:43:30.280
  • WE DON'T NEED TO TEACH THE FEAR
  • 00:43:30.280 --> 00:43:32.230
  • OF GOD, BUT WE NEED TO TEACH
  • 00:43:32.230 --> 00:43:34.090
  • PEOPLE THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:43:34.090 --> 00:43:35.020
  • - MATT: THANK YOU, LORD!
  • 00:43:35.020 --> 00:43:36.090
  • - JOSEPH: AND WHAT JOEL DOES
  • 00:43:36.090 --> 00:43:37.080
  • AND WHAT I DO IS THAT WE ARE
  • 00:43:37.080 --> 00:43:38.140
  • TELLING PEOPLE, "GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:43:38.140 --> 00:43:39.060
  • GOD IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:43:39.060 --> 00:43:40.090
  • GOD IS NOT AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:43:40.090 --> 00:43:41.050
  • HE WANTS TO HELP YOU."
  • 00:43:41.050 --> 00:43:42.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:42.050 --> 00:43:45.050
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT,
  • 00:43:45.050 --> 00:43:46.230
  • YOU KNOW, THE HOLY SPIRIT IS
  • 00:43:46.230 --> 00:43:49.010
  • ANOINTING ANY MINISTRY THAT
  • 00:43:49.010 --> 00:43:51.140
  • WANTS TO PROCLAIM THE LOVE OF
  • 00:43:51.140 --> 00:43:53.070
  • GOD BECAUSE WE DON'T HEAR IT
  • 00:43:53.070 --> 00:43:54.040
  • ENOUGH.
  • 00:43:54.040 --> 00:43:55.170
  • AND IT'S THE "PERFECT LOVE THAT
  • 00:43:55.170 --> 00:43:56.090
  • CASTS OUT FEAR," AND HOW DO WE
  • 00:43:56.090 --> 00:43:57.050
  • DO IT?
  • 00:43:57.050 --> 00:43:57.240
  • MANY A TIMES, WE PUT IT AS
  • 00:43:57.240 --> 00:43:59.140
  • MAN-CENTERED, WHERE PERFECT LOVE
  • 00:43:59.140 --> 00:44:00.240
  • IS WHEN YOU LOVE PERFECTLY.
  • 00:44:00.240 --> 00:44:02.220
  • NOBODY CAN LOVE PERFECTLY.
  • 00:44:02.220 --> 00:44:04.020
  • PERFECT LOVE IS HIS LOVE FOR US!
  • 00:44:04.020 --> 00:44:05.090
  • - MATT: WOW!
  • 00:44:05.090 --> 00:44:06.060
  • - JOSEPH: THIS IS LOVE, NOT
  • 00:44:06.060 --> 00:44:08.090
  • THAT WE LOVE GOD BUT THAT HE
  • 00:44:08.090 --> 00:44:09.170
  • LOVED US.
  • 00:44:09.170 --> 00:44:11.120
  • - MATT: BEAUTIFUL!
  • 00:44:11.120 --> 00:44:12.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:44:12.250 --> 00:44:13.150
  • - JOSEPH: NO, WAIT A MINUTE.
  • 00:44:13.150 --> 00:44:15.090
  • THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT, THE
  • 00:44:15.090 --> 00:44:16.190
  • GREATEST OF ALL THE LAW, THE
  • 00:44:16.190 --> 00:44:17.160
  • GREATEST OF ALL THE COMMANDMENTS
  • 00:44:17.160 --> 00:44:18.140
  • IS "THOU SHALT LOVE GOD WITH ALL
  • 00:44:18.140 --> 00:44:19.140
  • YOUR HEART, ALL YOUR SOUL, ALL
  • 00:44:19.140 --> 00:44:20.120
  • YOUR MIND, ALL YOUR STRENGTH."
  • 00:44:20.120 --> 00:44:23.050
  • NOW, JESUS SAID THAT, BUT HE WAS
  • 00:44:23.050 --> 00:44:24.250
  • RESPONDING TO A QUESTION THAT
  • 00:44:24.250 --> 00:44:27.080
  • ONE OF THE PHARISEES ASKED:
  • 00:44:27.080 --> 00:44:29.190
  • "WHAT IS THE GREATEST OF ALL THE
  • 00:44:29.190 --> 00:44:30.110
  • COMMANDMENTS?"
  • 00:44:30.110 --> 00:44:32.110
  • SO HE WASN'T SAYING THAT THIS IS
  • 00:44:32.110 --> 00:44:34.030
  • HOW YOU GO, BUT HE'S-- NO ONE
  • 00:44:34.030 --> 00:44:35.050
  • CAN DO THAT.
  • 00:44:35.050 --> 00:44:35.220
  • NO ONE CAN LOVE GOD WITH ALL OF
  • 00:44:35.220 --> 00:44:36.160
  • YOUR HEART, ALL OF YOUR SOUL,
  • 00:44:36.160 --> 00:44:37.070
  • ALL OF YOUR MIND.
  • 00:44:37.070 --> 00:44:38.100
  • HAS ANYONE DONE THAT?
  • 00:44:38.100 --> 00:44:38.270
  • NO ONE.
  • 00:44:38.270 --> 00:44:39.110
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, EVEN DAVID
  • 00:44:39.110 --> 00:44:40.030
  • FAILED.
  • 00:44:40.030 --> 00:44:41.270
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE WHO DID IT:
  • 00:44:41.270 --> 00:44:42.170
  • JESUS.
  • 00:44:42.170 --> 00:44:43.230
  • - MATT: BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:44:43.230 --> 00:44:44.160
  • - JOSEPH: AND IT'S EASY FOR
  • 00:44:44.160 --> 00:44:45.060
  • PEOPLE TO BE HEALED, TO RECEIVE
  • 00:44:45.060 --> 00:44:47.020
  • MIRACLES EVEN, WHEN THEY KNOW
  • 00:44:47.020 --> 00:44:48.130
  • GOD LOVES THEM.
  • 00:44:48.130 --> 00:44:50.190
  • WE USED TO TEACH "FAITH WORKS BY
  • 00:44:50.190 --> 00:44:51.210
  • LOVE; THAT LOVE IS OUR LOVE.
  • 00:44:52.010 --> 00:44:55.010
  • IF YOU LOVE PERFECTLY, YOUR
  • 00:44:55.010 --> 00:44:55.210
  • FAITH WILL WORK."
  • 00:44:55.210 --> 00:44:56.140
  • NO, FRIEND.
  • 00:44:56.140 --> 00:44:57.010
  • THE CONTEXT IS THIS: YOUR FAITH
  • 00:44:57.010 --> 00:44:58.140
  • WILL WORK BY "AGAPE," HIS LOVE
  • 00:44:58.140 --> 00:45:00.180
  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:45:00.180 --> 00:45:02.100
  • WHEN YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH HE
  • 00:45:02.100 --> 00:45:03.000
  • LOVES YOU, "BANG," YOUR FAITH
  • 00:45:03.000 --> 00:45:04.060
  • WILL WORK UNCONSCIOUSLY,
  • 00:45:04.060 --> 00:45:04.240
  • EFFORTLESSLY.
  • 00:45:04.240 --> 00:45:07.010
  • AMEN!
  • 00:45:07.010 --> 00:45:08.270
  • - MATT: THE MESSAGE OF GRACE
  • 00:45:17.030 --> 00:45:19.140
  • SEEMS LIKE IT SHOULD'VE NEVER
  • 00:45:19.140 --> 00:45:20.050
  • GONE OUT OF OUR, YOU KNOW, OUT
  • 00:45:20.050 --> 00:45:23.050
  • OF OUR VERNACULAR, BUT THE
  • 00:45:23.050 --> 00:45:24.180
  • GOSPEL OF GRACE, AS IT'S KIND OF
  • 00:45:24.180 --> 00:45:27.150
  • RESURFACING, THE IMPORTANCE OF
  • 00:45:27.150 --> 00:45:29.180
  • - LEON: I LOVE WHAT ROBERT
  • 00:45:33.000 --> 00:45:34.280
  • SAID, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU THINK
  • 00:45:34.280 --> 00:45:35.190
  • ABOUT-- IF I LOOK AT YOU AND I
  • 00:45:35.190 --> 00:45:36.100
  • SAY, "HEY, MATT, I'M GONNA DO
  • 00:45:36.100 --> 00:45:37.010
  • YOU A FAVOR."
  • 00:45:37.010 --> 00:45:38.030
  • THE FIRST THING THAT COMES
  • 00:45:38.030 --> 00:45:39.030
  • TO YOUR MIND IS..."WHAT?"
  • 00:45:41.080 --> 00:45:44.080
  • AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT GRACE, HIS
  • 00:45:44.080 --> 00:45:45.000
  • UNMERITED FAVOR, I LOVE TALKING
  • 00:45:45.000 --> 00:45:45.260
  • TO PEOPLE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:45:45.260 --> 00:45:46.180
  • I SAY, "WELL, WHAT IS THE FAVOR
  • 00:45:46.180 --> 00:45:47.210
  • THAT HE GAVE US?"
  • 00:45:47.260 --> 00:45:50.260
  • AND IT'S ACTUALLY HIS ABILITY.
  • 00:45:50.260 --> 00:45:51.170
  • AND SO GRACE-- YOU KNOW, WE
  • 00:45:51.170 --> 00:45:53.290
  • SOMETIMES GET IT MIXED UP WITH
  • 00:45:53.290 --> 00:45:55.060
  • MERCY, BUT GRACE IS HIS ABILITY
  • 00:45:55.060 --> 00:45:56.150
  • THAT COMES TO US IN AN
  • 00:45:56.280 --> 00:45:59.280
  • UNMERITED-- AS AN UNMERITED
  • 00:45:59.280 --> 00:46:01.070
  • AND AS ROBERT WAS SAYING, I
  • 00:46:04.280 --> 00:46:05.180
  • MEAN, YOU'VE GOT HIS POWER TO
  • 00:46:05.180 --> 00:46:06.100
  • LIVE MORALLY RIGHT.
  • 00:46:06.100 --> 00:46:09.000
  • YOU'VE GOT HIS POWER TO MAKE
  • 00:46:09.000 --> 00:46:09.200
  • YOUR MARRIAGE WORK.
  • 00:46:09.200 --> 00:46:10.200
  • YOU HAVE HIS ABILITY AS A FREE
  • 00:46:10.200 --> 00:46:11.110
  • GIFT.
  • 00:46:11.110 --> 00:46:12.170
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO EARN IT.
  • 00:46:12.170 --> 00:46:13.160
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO FIGURE OUT A
  • 00:46:13.160 --> 00:46:14.110
  • WAY TO GO GET IT.
  • 00:46:14.110 --> 00:46:15.170
  • IT'S A GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND
  • 00:46:15.170 --> 00:46:17.100
  • THIS AMAZING GRACE ON OUR LIVES,
  • 00:46:17.100 --> 00:46:20.010
  • AND WHAT'S BEAUTIFUL ABOUT-- AND
  • 00:46:20.010 --> 00:46:21.140
  • I LOVE THE RESURRECTION OF THIS
  • 00:46:21.140 --> 00:46:23.020
  • TRUTH IN SO MANY LIVES-- IS
  • 00:46:23.020 --> 00:46:24.140
  • BECAUSE RELIGION HAS A WAY OF
  • 00:46:24.200 --> 00:46:27.200
  • DESTROYING AND BREAKING PEOPLE
  • 00:46:27.200 --> 00:46:30.040
  • DOWN, BUT WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT
  • 00:46:30.040 --> 00:46:31.260
  • JESUS DID IT ALL, YOU KNOW, WHEN
  • 00:46:31.260 --> 00:46:34.190
  • I CONTINUE TO TEACH OR STUDY ON
  • 00:46:34.190 --> 00:46:36.190
  • THE TOPIC OF GRACE, YOU KNOW, I
  • 00:46:36.190 --> 00:46:38.120
  • JUST CONTINUE TO FEEL THIS
  • 00:46:38.120 --> 00:46:39.150
  • DEEPER LOVE FOR JESUS.
  • 00:46:39.150 --> 00:46:41.240
  • I WANNA JUST SIT THERE AND JUST
  • 00:46:41.240 --> 00:46:42.160
  • TEAR UP AND SAY, "OH, I LOVE YOU
  • 00:46:42.160 --> 00:46:44.160
  • SO MUCH FOR HOW EASY YOU MADE
  • 00:46:44.160 --> 00:46:46.130
  • - MALE NARRATOR: "FROM HIS
  • 00:46:52.010 --> 00:46:52.210
  • FULLNESS WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED
  • 00:46:52.210 --> 00:46:53.120
  • - JOSEPH: I'M AMUSED SOMETIMES
  • 00:46:56.190 --> 00:46:57.110
  • WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAYING THAT
  • 00:46:57.110 --> 00:46:58.020
  • "OH, I'M NOT INTO THIS GRACE
  • 00:46:58.020 --> 00:46:58.220
  • TEACHING."
  • 00:46:58.220 --> 00:47:01.020
  • IT'S NOT A GRACE TEACHING.
  • 00:47:01.020 --> 00:47:03.020
  • IT IS THE GOSPEL!
  • 00:47:03.020 --> 00:47:04.020
  • - LAURIE: RIGHT.
  • 00:47:04.020 --> 00:47:04.180
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:47:04.180 --> 00:47:05.100
  • - JOSEPH: GRACE IS JUST A
  • 00:47:05.100 --> 00:47:06.000
  • REDISCOVERY OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:47:06.000 --> 00:47:08.120
  • IT'S AS IF IT'S BEEN HIDDEN FOR,
  • 00:47:08.120 --> 00:47:09.040
  • YOU KNOW, FOR SOME TIME, AND ON
  • 00:47:09.040 --> 00:47:10.130
  • MY PART, I FEEL MY ROLE IS JUST
  • 00:47:10.130 --> 00:47:13.110
  • TO PICK IT UP AND JUST DUST OFF
  • 00:47:13.110 --> 00:47:14.030
  • LIKE KING JOSIAH FOUND THE LAW
  • 00:47:17.170 --> 00:47:18.080
  • OF THE LORD, YOU KNOW, AFTER
  • 00:47:18.080 --> 00:47:19.030
  • WE ARE JUST DUSTING OFF AND
  • 00:47:23.140 --> 00:47:24.040
  • LOOKING AT WHAT THE REAL GOSPEL
  • 00:47:24.040 --> 00:47:24.260
  • IS ALL ABOUT AND TELLING THE
  • 00:47:24.260 --> 00:47:25.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN TITUS THAT
  • 00:47:29.260 --> 00:47:30.160
  • "THE GRACE OF GOD HAS APPEARED,
  • 00:47:30.160 --> 00:47:31.080
  • BECOME VISIBLE TO ALL MEN."
  • 00:47:31.080 --> 00:47:32.260
  • THE GRACE OF GOD THAT BRINGS
  • 00:47:37.080 --> 00:47:37.280
  • SALVATION HAS APPEARED TO
  • 00:47:37.280 --> 00:47:38.170
  • ALL MEN, HAS BECOME VISIBLE.
  • 00:47:38.170 --> 00:47:39.280
  • THAT TELLS US GRACE IS NOT A
  • 00:47:39.280 --> 00:47:40.210
  • DOCTRINE.
  • 00:47:40.210 --> 00:47:42.020
  • GRACE IS THE PERSON OF OUR LORD
  • 00:47:42.020 --> 00:47:42.290
  • JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:47:43.190 --> 00:47:46.190
  • AND THERE ARE NEW VOICES THAT
  • 00:47:46.190 --> 00:47:47.100
  • WANT TO REDEFINE GRACE THAT'S
  • 00:47:47.100 --> 00:47:49.220
  • NOT BASED ON SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:47:49.220 --> 00:47:50.190
  • SCRIPTURE DEFINES "GRACE" LIKE
  • 00:47:50.190 --> 00:47:51.120
  • "IF IT BE OF WORKS," IN
  • 00:47:54.240 --> 00:47:55.120
  • THE BOOK OF ROMANS, "IF IT BE OF
  • 00:47:55.120 --> 00:47:56.040
  • WORKS, IT'S NO MORE OF GRACE."
  • 00:47:56.040 --> 00:47:56.250
  • IF IT BE OF GRACE, IT'S NO MORE
  • 00:47:56.250 --> 00:47:58.160
  • OF WORKS.
  • 00:47:58.160 --> 00:48:01.080
  • OTHERWISE, WORKS IS NO MORE
  • 00:48:01.080 --> 00:48:02.030
  • WORKS, GRACE IS NO MORE GRACE,
  • 00:48:02.030 --> 00:48:02.250
  • SO GRACE IS THE OPPOSITE OF
  • 00:48:06.110 --> 00:48:07.010
  • WORKS.
  • 00:48:07.010 --> 00:48:07.180
  • NOW, WE NEED WORKS IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:48:07.180 --> 00:48:09.130
  • BUT MANY A TIMES WE DON'T
  • 00:48:09.130 --> 00:48:11.080
  • REALIZE THAT WE BECOME HOLY BY
  • 00:48:11.080 --> 00:48:12.050
  • ACCIDENT.
  • 00:48:12.050 --> 00:48:14.100
  • WHEN YOUR MIND IS FULL OF HOPE,
  • 00:48:14.100 --> 00:48:16.060
  • YOUR HEART IS FULL OF FAITH,
  • 00:48:16.060 --> 00:48:18.250
  • THOSE ARE ACTUALLY
  • 00:48:18.250 --> 00:48:21.140
  • CHARACTERISTICS OF HOLINESS.
  • 00:48:21.140 --> 00:48:23.150
  • AND WHEN JESUS LOOKED AT THE
  • 00:48:24.000 --> 00:48:27.000
  • SEVEN CHURCHES-- AND I KNOW THAT
  • 00:48:27.000 --> 00:48:29.020
  • THIS SESSION MIGHT NOT BE FOR
  • 00:48:29.020 --> 00:48:30.070
  • THE SEVEN CHURCHES, BUT I JUST
  • 00:48:30.070 --> 00:48:31.230
  • WANNA TELL YOU THE FIRST CHURCH
  • 00:48:31.230 --> 00:48:32.230
  • THAT HE LOOKED AT-- AND HE WAS
  • 00:48:32.230 --> 00:48:34.000
  • ASSESSING THE CHURCH LIKE A
  • 00:48:34.000 --> 00:48:35.050
  • MANAGER WOULD ASSESS HIS
  • 00:48:35.050 --> 00:48:36.010
  • EMPLOYEES--
  • 00:48:36.250 --> 00:48:39.250
  • IT'S NOT A METHOD OF SALVATION.
  • 00:48:39.250 --> 00:48:40.290
  • IT'S A METHOD OF MINISTRY.
  • 00:48:40.290 --> 00:48:42.220
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION, THE
  • 00:48:42.220 --> 00:48:43.240
  • CANDLESTICK IS THE CHURCH, THE
  • 00:48:43.240 --> 00:48:45.000
  • LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:48:45.000 --> 00:48:47.040
  • YOU KNOW, JOHN SAW SEVEN GOLDEN
  • 00:48:47.040 --> 00:48:49.260
  • LAMPSTANDS, SEVEN MENORAHS.
  • 00:48:49.260 --> 00:48:52.010
  • THE SEVEN MENORAHS ARE THE SEVEN
  • 00:48:55.190 --> 00:48:56.110
  • CHURCHES IN ASIA MINOR AT THE
  • 00:48:56.110 --> 00:48:57.160
  • TIME.
  • 00:48:57.160 --> 00:49:00.140
  • SO LET'S USE THAT ANALOGY, ALL
  • 00:49:00.140 --> 00:49:01.150
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:49:01.150 --> 00:49:03.090
  • HE WAS LOOKING AT THE CHURCH AND
  • 00:49:03.090 --> 00:49:04.010
  • SAYS, "IF YOU DON'T REPENT, YOU
  • 00:49:04.010 --> 00:49:04.230
  • DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND, I'LL
  • 00:49:04.230 --> 00:49:05.130
  • REMOVE YOUR CANDLESTICK."
  • 00:49:05.130 --> 00:49:06.190
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:49:06.190 --> 00:49:07.210
  • YOUR CHURCH SHUTS DOWN.
  • 00:49:07.210 --> 00:49:08.280
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:49:08.280 --> 00:49:09.230
  • - JOSEPH: BUT THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:49:09.230 --> 00:49:10.150
  • ARE SAVED WILL GO SOMEWHERE
  • 00:49:10.150 --> 00:49:11.050
  • NOW, THAT, IN A FORM, IS A
  • 00:49:14.170 --> 00:49:15.060
  • CHASTISEMENT, RIGHT?
  • 00:49:15.060 --> 00:49:15.220
  • THE LORD IS ASSESSING THE
  • 00:49:15.220 --> 00:49:16.140
  • PASTORS.
  • 00:49:16.140 --> 00:49:18.110
  • HE'S TALKING TO THE PASTOR OF
  • 00:49:18.110 --> 00:49:19.100
  • THE CHURCH, THE ANGEL OF THE
  • 00:49:19.100 --> 00:49:20.000
  • JESUS SAID TO THE FIRST CHURCH
  • 00:49:21.280 --> 00:49:22.190
  • OF EPHESUS, LOOK AT THAT, "I
  • 00:49:22.190 --> 00:49:23.160
  • KNOW YOUR WORKS, YOUR LABOR,
  • 00:49:23.160 --> 00:49:24.200
  • YOUR PATIENCE."
  • 00:49:24.200 --> 00:49:27.200
  • NOTICE THE ORDER.
  • 00:49:27.200 --> 00:49:29.170
  • "I KNOW YOUR WORKS, YOUR LABOR,
  • 00:49:29.170 --> 00:49:31.030
  • YOUR PATIENCE."
  • 00:49:31.030 --> 00:49:33.120
  • NOW, FOR MOST OF US,
  • 00:49:33.120 --> 00:49:33.280
  • THIS CHURCH HAS WORKS, THEY HAVE
  • 00:49:37.100 --> 00:49:38.020
  • LABOR, AND THEY HAVE
  • 00:49:38.020 --> 00:49:38.250
  • PERSEVERANCE," RIGHT?
  • 00:49:38.250 --> 00:49:41.180
  • BUT NOTICE WHAT'S MISSING HERE.
  • 00:49:41.180 --> 00:49:44.100
  • IT'S AN INDICTMENT.
  • 00:49:44.100 --> 00:49:46.070
  • BECAUSE LOOK AT THE ORDER:
  • 00:49:46.070 --> 00:49:47.110
  • WORKS, LABOR, AND PATIENCE.
  • 00:49:47.110 --> 00:49:48.010
  • NOW, LET'S LOOK AT
  • 00:49:48.010 --> 00:49:49.090
  • PAUL SAYS, "...REMEMBERING
  • 00:49:51.220 --> 00:49:52.110
  • WITHOUT CEASING YOUR WORK OF
  • 00:49:52.110 --> 00:49:53.010
  • FAITH, LABOR OF LOVE, AND
  • 00:49:53.010 --> 00:49:54.290
  • - MATT: HOLY SMOKES!
  • 00:50:00.110 --> 00:50:01.220
  • - JOSEPH: SO WHAT IS MISSING IS
  • 00:50:01.220 --> 00:50:02.140
  • FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE.
  • 00:50:02.140 --> 00:50:03.060
  • "AND NOW ABIDES FAITH, HOPE, AND
  • 00:50:03.060 --> 00:50:04.210
  • LOVE."
  • 00:50:04.210 --> 00:50:05.100
  • SO WHAT JOEL DOES AND MY
  • 00:50:05.100 --> 00:50:06.140
  • MINISTRY IS THAT WE'RE
  • 00:50:06.140 --> 00:50:08.170
  • EMPHASIZING FAITH, HOPE, AND
  • 00:50:08.170 --> 00:50:09.070
  • LOVE.
  • 00:50:09.070 --> 00:50:12.000
  • THE PREVIOUS GENERATION, YOUR
  • 00:50:12.000 --> 00:50:12.260
  • FATHER, YOUR FATHER, EMPHASIZED
  • 00:50:12.260 --> 00:50:15.060
  • FAITH BECAUSE GOD WAS RESTORING
  • 00:50:15.060 --> 00:50:17.020
  • FAITH TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:50:17.020 --> 00:50:19.290
  • AND NOW WE HAVE HOPE, AND WE
  • 00:50:19.290 --> 00:50:20.190
  • HAVE LOVE BEING RESTORED.
  • 00:50:21.150 --> 00:50:24.150
  • NOW, ISN'T THIS TRUE HOLINESS?
  • 00:50:24.150 --> 00:50:26.130
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN BE DOING THE
  • 00:50:26.130 --> 00:50:27.030
  • RIGHT THINGS FOR THE WRONG
  • 00:50:27.030 --> 00:50:27.260
  • REASONS.
  • 00:50:27.260 --> 00:50:28.110
  • WHAT THE LORD WANTS IS NOT JUST
  • 00:50:28.110 --> 00:50:30.000
  • WORK, BUT WORK OF FAITH; NOT
  • 00:50:30.000 --> 00:50:31.220
  • JUST LABOR, BUT LABOR OF LOVE;
  • 00:50:31.220 --> 00:50:33.190
  • NOT JUST PERSEVERANCE, BUT
  • 00:50:33.190 --> 00:50:35.260
  • PERSEVERANCE OF HOPE BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:50:35.260 --> 00:50:37.190
  • HAVE A POSITIVE EXPECTATION OF
  • 00:50:37.190 --> 00:50:39.030
  • GOOD IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:50:39.030 --> 00:50:41.240
  • - LAURIE: OH, THAT'S GOOD!
  • 00:50:41.240 --> 00:50:42.140
  • - MATT: BEAUTIFUL!
  • 00:50:42.140 --> 00:50:43.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:43.120 --> 00:50:44.210
  • - JOSEPH: AND NOW ABIDES FAITH,
  • 00:50:44.210 --> 00:50:45.150
  • - NARRATOR: HERE AT THE
  • 00:50:51.030 --> 00:50:52.000
  • BEGINNING OF 2017, THE TRINITY
  • 00:50:52.000 --> 00:50:53.110
  • BROADCASTING FAMILY OF NETWORKS
  • 00:50:53.110 --> 00:50:54.030
  • INTRODUCE FOUR PILLARS OF TRUTH:
  • 00:50:54.170 --> 00:50:57.170
  • THE BLESSED LIFE, GRACE, SPIRIT
  • 00:50:58.000 --> 00:51:01.020
  • CONTEMPORARY, AND HOPE.
  • 00:51:02.280 --> 00:51:05.280
  • YOU CAN LIVE EMPOWERED BY THE
  • 00:51:05.280 --> 00:51:07.030
  • SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:51:07.030 --> 00:51:09.220
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT ENABLES YOU TO
  • 00:51:09.220 --> 00:51:11.070
  • ACCOMPLISH GREAT WORKS, BLESSING
  • 00:51:11.070 --> 00:51:12.200
  • THE WORLD AROUND YOU.
  • 00:51:12.210 --> 00:51:15.210
  • LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEXT
  • 00:51:15.210 --> 00:51:16.220
  • PILLAR FOR LIFE: SPIRIT
  • 00:51:16.220 --> 00:51:18.050
  • - MATT: LEON, JUST A
  • 00:51:23.110 --> 00:51:23.290
  • INTRODUCTORY COURSE, KIND OF, TO
  • 00:51:23.290 --> 00:51:24.220
  • THE PILLAR OF BEING SPIRIT
  • 00:51:24.220 --> 00:51:26.140
  • - LEON: YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU HEAR
  • 00:51:32.250 --> 00:51:33.170
  • ABOUT JESUS, THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:51:33.170 --> 00:51:34.120
  • "JESUS, WHO FOR THE JOY THAT WAS
  • 00:51:34.120 --> 00:51:35.040
  • SET BEFORE HIM, HE ENDURED THE
  • 00:51:35.040 --> 00:51:36.070
  • CROSS," YOU KNOW, DOT, DOT, DOT,
  • 00:51:36.070 --> 00:51:38.210
  • BUT WHEN JESUS DIED FOR US,
  • 00:51:42.040 --> 00:51:42.240
  • THERE'S SOMETHING THAT HE SAW
  • 00:51:42.240 --> 00:51:43.150
  • WHEN HE SAID, "GO AND DO WHAT I
  • 00:51:43.150 --> 00:51:44.110
  • DO AND GREATER THINGS."
  • 00:51:44.110 --> 00:51:46.230
  • AND SO HE REALLY WAS LOOKING
  • 00:51:46.230 --> 00:51:48.280
  • AT A-- I WANNA PUT IT THIS
  • 00:51:48.280 --> 00:51:50.060
  • WAY, LIKE, A RACE OF
  • 00:51:50.060 --> 00:51:51.080
  • SUPER-PEOPLE, PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:51:51.080 --> 00:51:53.190
  • KNEW JESUS AND WHO HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:51:53.260 --> 00:51:56.260
  • EMPOWERED THEM, NOT TO BE A
  • 00:51:56.260 --> 00:51:58.280
  • SUBCULTURE, NOT TO BE A CRAZY
  • 00:51:58.280 --> 00:52:00.210
  • CULTURE, NOT TO BE-- TO TURN
  • 00:52:00.210 --> 00:52:02.270
  • BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY ALIVE
  • 00:52:07.210 --> 00:52:08.130
  • LIKE JESUS WAS--
  • 00:52:08.130 --> 00:52:09.010
  • GREW IN FAVOR WITH GOD,
  • 00:52:09.010 --> 00:52:11.040
  • AND JESUS GREW IN FAVOR WITH
  • 00:52:11.040 --> 00:52:11.240
  • AND WHEN YOU STUDY THE EPISTLES
  • 00:52:14.270 --> 00:52:15.190
  • AND THE BOOK OF ACTS, SO MANY
  • 00:52:15.190 --> 00:52:16.100
  • PEOPLE REALIZE THESE WERE ALL
  • 00:52:16.100 --> 00:52:17.010
  • ITINERANT MINISTERS, THE
  • 00:52:17.010 --> 00:52:17.190
  • APOSTLES.
  • 00:52:17.190 --> 00:52:20.000
  • THEY TRAVELED.
  • 00:52:20.000 --> 00:52:20.280
  • AND SO WE TEND TO THINK THAT
  • 00:52:20.280 --> 00:52:21.280
  • EVERY CHRISTIAN HAS TO RUN
  • 00:52:21.280 --> 00:52:23.040
  • AROUND PREACHIN' AT PEOPLE.
  • 00:52:23.040 --> 00:52:24.260
  • AND WE DON'T REALLY HAVE, OTHER
  • 00:52:24.260 --> 00:52:26.010
  • THAN THE PRINCIPLES, WHICH ARE
  • 00:52:26.010 --> 00:52:27.070
  • GORGEOUS, WHAT DOES A LAWYER DO?
  • 00:52:27.070 --> 00:52:28.230
  • WHAT DOES A MOM DO WHEN SHE
  • 00:52:28.230 --> 00:52:30.140
  • PRAYS FOR PEOPLE?
  • 00:52:30.140 --> 00:52:32.060
  • AND SO THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY
  • 00:52:32.060 --> 00:52:33.130
  • LIFE IS LOOKING AT EVERY PERSON
  • 00:52:33.130 --> 00:52:35.280
  • ON THE PLANET WHO KNOWS CHRIST
  • 00:52:35.280 --> 00:52:37.260
  • AND THAT WE NEED TO BE
  • 00:52:37.260 --> 00:52:39.240
  • SPIRITUALLY ALIVE, EMPOWERED BY
  • 00:52:39.240 --> 00:52:40.270
  • HOLY SPIRIT WHERE, WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:52:40.270 --> 00:52:42.280
  • HIS PEACE EMANATING FROM US,
  • 00:52:42.280 --> 00:52:45.080
  • WHETHER IT'S THE JOY IN THE
  • 00:52:45.080 --> 00:52:47.030
  • MIDST OF SITUATIONS, AND THE
  • 00:52:47.030 --> 00:52:48.070
  • MIRACULOUS THAT FLOWS IN OUR
  • 00:52:48.070 --> 00:52:50.010
  • LIVES, BUT NOT PREACHERS WHERE
  • 00:52:50.010 --> 00:52:51.150
  • WE'RE IN CHURCH, AND WE'VE GOT
  • 00:52:51.150 --> 00:52:53.170
  • THE BEAUTIFUL CHOIR, AND "HE
  • 00:52:53.170 --> 00:52:54.200
  • TOUCHED ME" IS PLAYING.
  • 00:52:54.200 --> 00:52:56.020
  • AND WE DO THAT IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:52:56.020 --> 00:52:57.290
  • BUT MOMS DON'T GET THAT, AND
  • 00:52:57.290 --> 00:52:59.050
  • THAT BOARD MEMBER PRAYING WITH A
  • 00:52:59.050 --> 00:53:00.200
  • SICK PARTNER IN THE COMPANY
  • 00:53:00.200 --> 00:53:02.190
  • DOESN'T GET THAT.
  • 00:53:02.190 --> 00:53:04.070
  • IT'S JUST THE SILENCE.
  • 00:53:04.070 --> 00:53:05.270
  • AS A PARAMEDIC, I DIDN'T GET
  • 00:53:05.270 --> 00:53:07.050
  • THAT.
  • 00:53:07.050 --> 00:53:08.020
  • IT WAS JUST THE CRIES OF THE
  • 00:53:08.020 --> 00:53:08.220
  • WOUNDED, THE SOUNDS OF SIRENS,
  • 00:53:08.220 --> 00:53:10.050
  • POLICE BARKING ORDERS, AND ME
  • 00:53:10.050 --> 00:53:12.010
  • PRAYING WITH SOMEBODY AND
  • 00:53:12.010 --> 00:53:13.160
  • BELIEVING FOR MIRACLES.
  • 00:53:13.160 --> 00:53:16.070
  • HE SAW SOMETHING THAT I DON'T
  • 00:53:16.070 --> 00:53:17.180
  • THINK THE CHURCH SEES YET.
  • 00:53:17.180 --> 00:53:19.190
  • WE SEE IT WHEN WE USE THE WORD
  • 00:53:19.190 --> 00:53:20.110
  • "MEEK."
  • 00:53:20.110 --> 00:53:22.050
  • IT'S NOT A PATHETIC, WIMPY,
  • 00:53:22.050 --> 00:53:22.250
  • GROUP OF LITTLE PEOPLE.
  • 00:53:22.250 --> 00:53:25.090
  • EVEN THE WORD "MEEK," YOU KNOW,
  • 00:53:25.090 --> 00:53:26.290
  • I THINK IT'S THE WORD "PRAUS" IS
  • 00:53:26.290 --> 00:53:28.050
  • WHAT THE GREEKS CALLED THEIR
  • 00:53:28.050 --> 00:53:28.290
  • WAR HORSES, COMPLETELY OBEDIENT
  • 00:53:28.290 --> 00:53:30.170
  • TO THE RIDER.
  • 00:53:30.170 --> 00:53:33.010
  • YOU KNOW, THEY WERE JUST
  • 00:53:33.010 --> 00:53:33.190
  • COMPLETELY SUBMISSIVE AND
  • 00:53:33.190 --> 00:53:35.200
  • OBEDIENT TO THE RIDER BUT
  • 00:53:35.200 --> 00:53:37.220
  • UNBELIEVABLY POWERFUL IN
  • 00:53:37.220 --> 00:53:38.170
  • WARFARE, STRAIGHT INTO THE
  • 00:53:38.170 --> 00:53:40.220
  • LANCES AND THE SPEARS.
  • 00:53:40.220 --> 00:53:42.100
  • THERE'S SOMETHING THAT, WHERE I
  • 00:53:42.100 --> 00:53:43.200
  • BELIEVE THE BODY OF CHRIST NEEDS
  • 00:53:43.200 --> 00:53:44.120
  • TO SEE IN 2017, AND IT'S A NEW
  • 00:53:44.120 --> 00:53:45.130
  • LOOK AT CHRISTIANS, NOT
  • 00:53:45.130 --> 00:53:47.200
  • PATHETIC, WIMPY, LITTLE
  • 00:53:47.230 --> 00:53:50.230
  • BELIEVERS WAITING FOR JESUS TO
  • 00:53:50.230 --> 00:53:52.060
  • RESCUE US FROM THIS WORLD OF
  • 00:53:52.060 --> 00:53:53.240
  • WOE, BUT PHENOMENAL LEADERS,
  • 00:53:53.240 --> 00:53:54.280
  • GREATER THAN ANYTHING THE OLD
  • 00:53:54.280 --> 00:53:57.260
  • TESTAMENT HAD, IN THIS NEW
  • 00:53:57.260 --> 00:54:00.120
  • TESTAMENT, IN THE ARTS AND
  • 00:54:00.120 --> 00:54:01.290
  • BUSINESS, AND IN LEADING
  • 00:54:01.290 --> 00:54:03.200
  • COUNTRIES, AND ALL THESE AREAS
  • 00:54:03.200 --> 00:54:05.130
  • OF MEDICINE, ET CETERA.
  • 00:54:05.130 --> 00:54:07.080
  • WE'RE GONNA SEE AN ENTIRE GROUP
  • 00:54:07.080 --> 00:54:08.270
  • OF LEADERS RISE UP IN THE
  • 00:54:08.270 --> 00:54:11.010
  • EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:54:11.010 --> 00:54:13.020
  • WE'RE EQUIPPING THEM FOR THE
  • 00:54:13.020 --> 00:54:13.220
  • WORK OF THE MINISTRY INSTEAD OF
  • 00:54:13.220 --> 00:54:14.280
  • US DOING IT.
  • 00:54:14.280 --> 00:54:16.180
  • - LEON: YOU SHOULD BE DAILY
  • 00:54:22.250 --> 00:54:23.150
  • DOING THE THINGS THAT CAUSE THE
  • 00:54:23.150 --> 00:54:24.270
  • PRESENCE OF GOD TO BE RELEASED
  • 00:54:24.270 --> 00:54:26.080
  • IN YOUR LIFE 'CAUSE GOD'S
  • 00:54:26.080 --> 00:54:28.120
  • PRESENCE, FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:54:28.120 --> 00:54:30.040
  • HAS BEEN COMMANDED UPON YOU.
  • 00:54:30.040 --> 00:54:32.250
  • THE BLESSINGS OF THE LORD HAVE
  • 00:54:32.250 --> 00:54:34.050
  • BEEN COMMANDED UPON YOU.
  • 00:54:34.050 --> 00:54:36.120
  • - LEON: WHEN YOU ASK SOMEBODY,
  • 00:54:40.080 --> 00:54:41.030
  • "WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN?"
  • 00:54:41.030 --> 00:54:43.080
  • IT'S AN INTERESTING QUESTION.
  • 00:54:43.080 --> 00:54:44.280
  • I WAS RAISED IN A WONDERFUL
  • 00:54:44.280 --> 00:54:46.200
  • CHRISTIAN HOME, PARENTS BOTH
  • 00:54:46.200 --> 00:54:48.030
  • PASTORS, AND IN A SMALL TOWN
  • 00:54:48.030 --> 00:54:51.030
  • WHERE I WAS BEATEN UP REGULARLY
  • 00:54:51.030 --> 00:54:52.120
  • AND RIDICULED FOR BEING A
  • 00:54:52.120 --> 00:54:53.230
  • CHRISTIAN, AND WITHOUT REALIZING
  • 00:54:53.230 --> 00:54:56.120
  • IT, DEVELOPED THIS, LIKE,
  • 00:54:56.120 --> 00:54:57.250
  • "CHRISTIANS ARE JUST, KIND OF,
  • 00:54:57.250 --> 00:54:59.030
  • THE LOWEST LITTLE SCARED MICE
  • 00:54:59.030 --> 00:55:00.240
  • RUNNING AROUND."
  • 00:55:00.240 --> 00:55:03.050
  • AND THEN, AS I BEGAN TO GET
  • 00:55:03.050 --> 00:55:04.130
  • INTO GOD'S WORD AND MY HEROES
  • 00:55:04.130 --> 00:55:07.040
  • WERE LIKE DAVID RUN THROUGH
  • 00:55:07.040 --> 00:55:08.140
  • A TROOP, LEAP OVER A
  • 00:55:08.140 --> 00:55:09.130
  • WALL, MY HEROES WERE MOSES.
  • 00:55:09.130 --> 00:55:10.170
  • I HAVE A JEWISH FRIEND, SANDY
  • 00:55:10.170 --> 00:55:12.040
  • KULKIN, WHO SAYS, "ANYBODY WHO
  • 00:55:12.040 --> 00:55:13.180
  • CAN LEAD 2 MILLION JEWS ANYWHERE
  • 00:55:13.180 --> 00:55:14.230
  • IS A GENIUS!"
  • 00:55:14.230 --> 00:55:16.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:55:16.010 --> 00:55:17.150
  • AND, I MEAN, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

  • THESE INCREDIBLE HEROES,
  • 00:55:18.100 --> 00:55:21.020
  • AND THEN YOU COME TO THE
  • 00:55:21.020 --> 00:55:21.200
  • NEW TESTAMENT, AND YOU SEE MEN
  • 00:55:21.200 --> 00:55:23.110
  • THAT WERE GONNA DIE, AND THEY
  • 00:55:23.110 --> 00:55:24.180
  • KNEW IT, FOR THE CAUSE OF
  • 00:55:24.180 --> 00:55:26.100
  • CHRIST, AND THEN WE COME TO
  • 00:55:26.100 --> 00:55:27.130
  • TODAY... AND WE KIND OF GO,
  • 00:55:27.130 --> 00:55:29.050
  • "WHAT IS GOIN' ON?"
  • 00:55:29.050 --> 00:55:30.290
  • AND I KNEW THAT I WANTED TO BE A
  • 00:55:30.290 --> 00:55:32.240
  • CHRISTIAN, BUT I WANTED TO BE
  • 00:55:32.240 --> 00:55:34.170
  • LIKE THE NAVY SEAL WHEN IT CAME
  • 00:55:34.170 --> 00:55:35.090
  • TO THE BATTLE, AND I WANTED TO
  • 00:55:36.010 --> 00:55:39.010
  • BE THE MOST AMAZING LOVER WHEN
  • 00:55:39.010 --> 00:55:41.000
  • IT CAME TO MY WIFE.
  • 00:55:41.000 --> 00:55:43.080
  • I WANTED TO HAVE TEARS IN MY

  • TO BE LIKE ONE OF MY FAVORITE

  • MESS WITH THIS GUY!
  • 00:55:56.240 --> 00:55:59.140
  • HE WAS SO IN LOVE WITH HIS KIDS,
  • 00:55:59.140 --> 00:56:00.080
  • BUT HE WAS THE MOST-- NOT
  • 00:56:00.080 --> 00:56:00.270
  • WHEN I LOOK AT A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:56:04.120 --> 00:56:05.070
  • TODAY, I DON'T WANNA BE THIS
  • 00:56:05.070 --> 00:56:05.270
  • MEEK LITTLE PATHETIC THING
  • 00:56:05.270 --> 00:56:07.080
  • RUNNING AROUND, "I'M A

  • BUT WHEN I LOOK AT JESUS, I
  • 00:56:11.220 --> 00:56:12.270
  • DON'T LOOK AT A BABY IN A

  • WITH FLIP-FLOPS AND LONG,

  • WE'RE THE FAMILY, SO WE

  • 00:56:46.030 --> 00:56:47.270
  • WE RESPECT AND HONOR AND CAN
  • 00:56:47.270 --> 00:56:50.210
  • FLOW IN A CULTURE THAT IS
  • 00:56:50.210 --> 00:56:52.090
  • ANTI-US, BUT WE CAN MOVE RIGHT
  • 00:56:52.090 --> 00:56:54.070
  • INTO THAT CULTURE LIKE JESUS DID
  • 00:56:54.070 --> 00:56:56.030

  • CHRISTIANITY IS AND SHOULD BE.
  • 00:56:59.210 --> 00:57:01.180
  • IT'S THE WAY JESUS WAS.
  • 00:57:01.180 --> 00:57:03.250
  • IT'S THE WAY THE APOSTLE PAUL
  • 00:57:03.250 --> 00:57:04.290
  • WAS.

  • 00:57:15.220 --> 00:57:16.120
  • SUCCEED IN THIS LIFE, YOU HAVE

  • WITH MAN."
  • 00:57:23.210 --> 00:57:26.210
  • SO IF YOU ARE IN THE DITCH
  • 00:57:26.210 --> 00:57:28.000
  • ON ONE SIDE, FOR EVERY MILE
  • 00:57:28.000 --> 00:57:29.050
  • OF ROAD IS 2 MILES OF DITCH.

  • WE HAVE PEOPLE ON THE ONE SIDE
  • 00:57:32.000 --> 00:57:33.090
  • WHO ARE SO SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:57:33.090 --> 00:57:34.070
  • THEY PRAY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:57:34.070 --> 00:57:35.120
  • THEY'RE PRAYING FOR THEIR KIDS
  • 00:57:35.120 --> 00:57:37.220
  • TO GET SAVED, PRAYING FOR THEIR
  • 00:57:37.220 --> 00:57:39.090

  • PRAYING FOR STUFF.
  • 00:57:42.130 --> 00:57:45.100
  • AND THEN, ON THE PRACTICAL SIDE,
  • 00:57:45.100 --> 00:57:46.180
  • WHERE YOU'VE BETTER LEARN TO BE
  • 00:57:46.180 --> 00:57:48.050
  • CONTEMPORARY AND MAKE THAT

  • - LEON: AS BELIEVERS, GOD HAS
  • 00:58:04.200 --> 00:58:05.230
  • EMPOWERED ALL OF US TO HELP

  • PEOPLE, REACH OUT TO PEOPLE,
  • 00:58:06.270 --> 00:58:08.110
  • WHETHER YOU'RE IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:58:08.110 --> 00:58:10.090
  • HALLWAYS OR PRAYING WITH
  • 00:58:10.090 --> 00:58:11.080
  • SOMEONE.
  • 00:58:11.080 --> 00:58:13.240
  • ACTUALLY, PASTORS DON'T HAVE A
  • 00:58:13.240 --> 00:58:14.150
  • GREATER ANOINTING.
  • 00:58:14.150 --> 00:58:16.270
  • THEY DON'T HAVE MORE OF JESUS.
  • 00:58:16.270 --> 00:58:18.290
  • WE ARE ALL MINISTERS OF THE
  • 00:58:18.290 --> 00:58:20.140
  • GOSPEL.
  • 00:58:20.140 --> 00:58:22.120
  • AND SO SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY
  • 00:58:22.120 --> 00:58:23.260
  • REALLY DOES-- IT BEGINS TO EQUIP
  • 00:58:23.260 --> 00:58:25.140
  • PEOPLE AND TEACH THEM THAT THE
  • 00:58:25.140 --> 00:58:27.170
  • PASTORS ARE THE COACHES.
  • 00:58:27.170 --> 00:58:30.110
  • AND WHEN, YOU KNOW, 'CAUSE IT IS
  • 00:58:30.110 --> 00:58:32.010
  • THIS BIG LAITY-CLERGY GAP: "I'M
  • 00:58:32.010 --> 00:58:33.100
  • THE CLERGY.
  • 00:58:33.100 --> 00:58:34.210
  • I'M THE PROFESSIONAL.
  • 00:58:34.210 --> 00:58:36.050
  • YOU'RE THE ROOKIE.
  • 00:58:36.050 --> 00:58:37.070
  • YOU'RE THE LAITY."
  • 00:58:37.070 --> 00:58:37.230
  • AND THIS CLERGY-LAITY GAP HAS
  • 00:58:37.230 --> 00:58:39.000
  • GOTTEN HUGE UNTIL THEY FINALLY
  • 00:58:39.000 --> 00:58:41.040
  • JUST ALLOWED THE CLERGY TO DO
  • 00:58:41.040 --> 00:58:42.090
  • ALL OF THE WORK OF THE
  • 00:58:42.090 --> 00:58:44.070
  • MINISTRY RATHER THAN TO
  • 00:58:44.070 --> 00:58:45.070
  • EQUIP AND COACH THEM IN IT.
  • 00:58:45.070 --> 00:58:46.270
  • AND SO WHEN PEOPLE BEGIN TO HEAR
  • 00:58:46.270 --> 00:58:47.240
  • THIS TEACHING, THE SPIRIT
  • 00:58:47.240 --> 00:58:49.190
  • CONTEMPORARY LOOK AT THE
  • 00:58:49.190 --> 00:58:51.050
  • FIVEFOLD MINISTRY OR THE
  • 00:58:51.050 --> 00:58:54.040
  • COACHES, YOU ARE THE GIFTED
  • 00:58:54.040 --> 00:58:55.240
  • PHENOMENALLY AMAZING PLAYERS.
  • 00:58:55.240 --> 00:58:57.010
  • I THINK THAT JUST THAT SWITCH
  • 00:58:57.060 --> 00:59:00.080
  • BEGINS TO MAKE THEM GO, "WOW,
  • 00:59:00.080 --> 00:59:01.230
  • - MALE NARRATOR: "FOR GOD HAS
  • 00:59:06.120 --> 00:59:07.030

  • 00:59:13.080 --> 00:59:13.290
  • IMAGERY OF THE OLD-FASHIONED,
  • 00:59:13.290 --> 00:59:16.090
  • SPIRIT-LED LIFE THAT WOULD'VE
  • 00:59:16.090 --> 00:59:19.020
  • BEEN IN MY GRANDPARENTS'
  • 00:59:19.020 --> 00:59:20.180
  • GENERATION, IT WAS KIND OF THE
  • 00:59:20.180 --> 00:59:22.160
  • "SWING FROM THE CHANDELIER" KIND
  • 00:59:22.160 --> 00:59:25.050
  • OF A DYNAMIC, AND THAT WOULD'VE
  • 00:59:25.050 --> 00:59:28.040
  • BEEN HOLY SPIRIT-LED, OKAY?
  • 00:59:28.040 --> 00:59:30.210
  • SO HOW DO WE TAKE WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:59:30.210 --> 00:59:32.180
  • TALKING ABOUT AND TRANSITION TO
  • 00:59:32.180 --> 00:59:33.220
  • LIVE OUT A DYNAMIC,
  • 00:59:36.260 --> 00:59:39.260
  • SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE IN A VERY
  • 00:59:39.260 --> 00:59:41.130
  • CONTEMPORARY WAY?
  • 00:59:41.130 --> 00:59:43.040
  • WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY LOOK
  • 00:59:43.040 --> 00:59:43.240
  • - LEON: WHEN I TRAIN PASTORS
  • 00:59:45.290 --> 00:59:46.200
  • AROUND THE WORLD AND WE BEGIN TO
  • 00:59:46.200 --> 00:59:47.120
  • TALK ABOUT THE THINGS OF THE
  • 00:59:47.120 --> 00:59:48.020
  • I USUALLY GET THIS PULLBACK
  • 00:59:51.210 --> 00:59:52.110
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT THE
  • 00:59:52.110 --> 00:59:53.010
  • HOLY SPIRIT TO MAKE THEM DO
  • 00:59:53.010 --> 00:59:53.210
  • CRAZY, STUPID THINGS.
  • 00:59:53.210 --> 00:59:55.210
  • AND SO I TELL THEM THIS STORY,
  • 00:59:55.210 --> 00:59:57.280
  • AND THE STORY HAS BEEN THE MOST
  • 00:59:57.280 --> 00:59:59.190
  • POWERFUL WAY I KNOW TO CUT
  • 00:59:59.190 --> 01:00:00.080
  • THROUGH A LOT OF DOCTRINE.
  • 01:00:00.080 --> 01:00:02.130
  • I SAID, "IF I WAS IN A SERVICE
  • 01:00:02.130 --> 01:00:03.110
  • AND THE FRONT ROW HAD SOME
  • 01:00:03.110 --> 01:00:05.090
  • PEOPLE, AND I GAVE THEM EACH A
  • 01:00:05.090 --> 01:00:06.180
  • QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS, TO

  • THE FIRST WOMAN, SHE HAS A CHILD
  • 01:00:08.160 --> 01:00:10.140
  • WHO'S-- A DISEASE THAT IS
  • 01:00:10.140 --> 01:00:11.220
  • KILLING THEM.
  • 01:00:11.220 --> 01:00:13.140
  • THERE'S NO ANSWER IN AMERICAN
  • 01:00:13.140 --> 01:00:15.040
  • MEDICINE, BUT GERMANY HAS A
  • 01:00:15.040 --> 01:00:16.140
  • CLINIC THAT IS VERY SUCCESSFUL.
  • 01:00:16.140 --> 01:00:18.280
  • NOT ACCEPTED HERE.
  • 01:00:18.280 --> 01:00:20.100
  • SHE CAN'T AFFORD TO GO.
  • 01:00:20.100 --> 01:00:21.070
  • I HAND HER A QUARTER OF A
  • 01:00:21.070 --> 01:00:22.230
  • MILLION DOLLARS, AND SHE BEGINS
  • 01:00:22.230 --> 01:00:25.010
  • TO GRAB HER STOMACH AND COLLAPSE
  • 01:00:25.010 --> 01:00:27.010
  • ON THE FLOOR, I MEAN, WEEPING
  • 01:00:27.010 --> 01:00:29.220
  • AND SOBBING BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT
  • 01:00:29.220 --> 01:00:30.190
  • AND THEN I TURN TO THE NEXT GUY
  • 01:00:37.110 --> 01:00:38.030
  • WHO'S LOSIN' THE FAMILY
  • 01:00:38.030 --> 01:00:39.080
  • BUSINESS, AND HE JUST NEEDED THE
  • 01:00:39.080 --> 01:00:40.000
  • MONEY TO TRANSITION THROUGH A
  • 01:00:40.000 --> 01:00:40.210
  • COUPLE OF MONTHS WITH HIS STAFF
  • 01:00:40.210 --> 01:00:41.130
  • AND PAYROLL.
  • 01:00:41.130 --> 01:00:42.060
  • AND I HAND HIM A QUARTER OF A
  • 01:00:42.060 --> 01:00:43.040
  • MILLION DOLLARS, AND HE'S BEEN
  • 01:00:43.040 --> 01:00:44.260
  • STRESSED TO THE MAX, AND THAT
  • 01:00:44.260 --> 01:00:45.170
  • MAN JUST SITS THERE, AND HE GOES
  • 01:00:45.170 --> 01:00:46.140
  • HE JUST STARES INTO SPACE, AND
  • 01:00:50.160 --> 01:00:51.070
  • YOU CAN GO LIKE THIS AND TALK TO
  • 01:00:51.070 --> 01:00:51.290
  • HIM, AND HE'S IGNORING YOU.
  • 01:00:51.290 --> 01:00:53.020
  • AND THE NEXT PERSON THAT I GIVE
  • 01:00:53.020 --> 01:00:54.100
  • THIS MONEY IS LOSING THEIR HOME,
  • 01:00:54.100 --> 01:00:55.150
  • AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHERE
  • 01:00:55.150 --> 01:00:56.070
  • THEY'RE GONNA GO WITH THIS.
  • 01:00:56.070 --> 01:00:57.110
  • SINGLE MOM OR A SINGLE DAD AND
  • 01:00:57.110 --> 01:00:59.060
  • TWO KIDS, AND I HAND 'EM A
  • 01:00:59.060 --> 01:01:00.240
  • QUARTER OF A MILLION, AND IT'S A
  • 01:01:00.240 --> 01:01:02.030
  • DOWN PAYMENT OR WHAT THEY CAN DO
  • 01:01:02.030 --> 01:01:02.280
  • TO GET THE PLACE.
  • 01:01:02.280 --> 01:01:04.210
  • AND HE STANDS ON A CHAIR AND
  • 01:01:04.210 --> 01:01:06.140
  • WHOOPS IT AND SHAKES HIS COAT
  • 01:01:06.140 --> 01:01:07.120
  • AROUND LIKE THIS.
  • 01:01:07.120 --> 01:01:09.080
  • AND I TELL THE PASTORS, "DID THE
  • 01:01:09.080 --> 01:01:10.100
  • HOLY SPIRIT DO THAT TO THOSE
  • 01:01:10.100 --> 01:01:11.160
  • THREE PEOPLE?"
  • 01:01:12.090 --> 01:01:15.090
  • AND YOU CAN SEE 'EM KIND OF GO,
  • 01:01:15.090 --> 01:01:16.010
  • "UH..."
  • 01:01:16.010 --> 01:01:16.260
  • I SAID, "HE DIDN'T.
  • 01:01:16.260 --> 01:01:18.040
  • IT'S THEIR REACTION TO THE
  • 01:01:18.040 --> 01:01:18.230
  • BLESSING OF GOD."
  • 01:01:18.240 --> 01:01:21.240
  • AND SO THERE ARE TIMES IN CHURCH
  • 01:01:21.240 --> 01:01:23.190
  • WHEN I'VE SEEN PEOPLE DO WILD,
  • 01:01:23.200 --> 01:01:26.200
  • CRAZY THINGS, AND I JUST CALM
  • 01:01:26.200 --> 01:01:27.120
  • THE PEOPLE DOWN AND SAY,
  • 01:01:27.120 --> 01:01:28.230
  • "FOLKS, WHEN PEOPLE ARE TOUCHED
  • 01:01:28.230 --> 01:01:30.180
  • BY GOD,
  • 01:01:30.180 --> 01:01:32.060
  • WE DON'T KNOW THAT THE
  • 01:01:32.060 --> 01:01:33.120
  • REACTION'S GONNA BE.
  • 01:01:33.120 --> 01:01:36.030
  • IT'S NOT HOLY SPIRIT DOING THIS
  • 01:01:36.030 --> 01:01:36.250
  • TO THEM.
  • 01:01:36.250 --> 01:01:37.070
  • IT'S THEIR REACTION TO THE
  • 01:01:37.070 --> 01:01:39.020
  • HEALING, THE BLESSING, THE

  • TOUCH."
  • 01:01:39.270 --> 01:01:42.270
  • AND SO THAT-- IT SETS PEOPLE
  • 01:01:42.270 --> 01:01:43.170
  • FREE BECAUSE, IN MY WORLD
  • 01:01:43.170 --> 01:01:44.190
  • AS A PASTOR AND A FORMER
  • 01:01:44.290 --> 01:01:47.290
  • PARAMEDIC, I MEAN, I'VE SEEN SO
  • 01:01:47.290 --> 01:01:48.210
  • MANY MIRACLES, AND I SHARED IN
  • 01:01:48.210 --> 01:01:49.120
  • THE BOOK,

  • "THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY LIFE,"
  • 01:01:50.290 --> 01:01:52.120
  • BUT, I MEAN, FROM THE RAISING
  • 01:01:52.120 --> 01:01:53.230
  • OF THE DEAD, TO GOD TOUCHING ME,
  • 01:01:53.230 --> 01:01:55.010
  • TO BEING IN THE LOWEST OF LOWS
  • 01:01:55.010 --> 01:01:57.000
  • WHEN I'VE LOST THE THINGS THAT
  • 01:01:57.000 --> 01:01:58.090
  • ARE CLOSE TO ME,
  • 01:01:58.090 --> 01:02:00.140
  • WHEN GOD TOUCHED ME AND SET ME

  • THE-- I MEAN, JUST A GOOD OLE
  • 01:02:05.250 --> 01:02:07.050
  • CRY IS PROBABLY THE MOST I'VE
  • 01:02:07.050 --> 01:02:09.000

  • 01:02:09.000 --> 01:02:09.190
  • MIRACLES LIKE PROBABLY A LOT OF
  • 01:02:09.190 --> 01:02:11.140
  • PEOPLE HAVE NEVER SEEN, AND I'VE
  • 01:02:11.140 --> 01:02:12.260
  • SEEN GOD USE ME IN WAYS THAT--
  • 01:02:12.260 --> 01:02:14.050
  • AND I'VE NEVER EVER-- AND I'VE
  • 01:02:14.050 --> 01:02:15.230
  • NEVER BEEN AFRAID OF IT BECAUSE
  • 01:02:15.230 --> 01:02:16.270
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT THE ONE THAT
  • 01:02:16.270 --> 01:02:18.090
  • CONTROLS ME.
  • 01:02:18.090 --> 01:02:19.180
  • HE'S MY HELPER.

  • DIRECTION.
  • 01:02:26.280 --> 01:02:27.150
  • WHERE DO I LIFT?
  • 01:02:27.150 --> 01:02:27.290
  • WHERE DO I PUT MY HANDS?
  • 01:02:27.290 --> 01:02:28.170
  • WHEN YOU SAY, 'GO,' COUNT TO
  • 01:02:28.170 --> 01:02:29.070
  • THREE.
  • 01:02:29.070 --> 01:02:31.000
  • WE'LL LIFT IT TOGETHER."
  • 01:02:31.000 --> 01:02:31.260
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR HELPER, OUR

  • HELP.
  • 01:02:35.110 --> 01:02:37.270
  • AND SO WHEN PEOPLE BEGIN TO
  • 01:02:37.270 --> 01:02:38.170
  • REALIZE THAT THE GIFTS OF THE
  • 01:02:38.170 --> 01:02:40.020
  • SPIRIT, THE MIRACULOUS THINGS OF
  • 01:02:40.020 --> 01:02:41.060
  • THE SPIRIT, HIM GIVING US WORDS
  • 01:02:41.060 --> 01:02:42.240
  • OF WISDOM AND WAYS TO HANDLE
  • 01:02:42.240 --> 01:02:44.010
  • THINGS, THAT HE IS LITERALLY
  • 01:02:44.010 --> 01:02:45.200
  • WAITING FOR US.
  • 01:02:45.200 --> 01:02:47.260
  • HE'LL GUIDE US, AND HE'LL DIRECT
  • 01:02:47.260 --> 01:02:48.180
  • US, BUT HE'S WAITING FOR US TO

  • STEP OUT.
  • 01:02:49.120 --> 01:02:51.020
  • AND HE'S THE MOST SPIRIT

  • CONTEMPORARY FORCE ON THE

  • PLANET.
  • 01:02:53.130 --> 01:02:54.110
  • SPIRITUALLY, WE ARE TO BE ALIVE.
  • 01:02:54.110 --> 01:02:56.160
  • WE CAN ACCESS HIS PEACE ANYTIME
  • 01:02:56.160 --> 01:02:57.250
  • WE WANT.
  • 01:02:57.250 --> 01:02:59.110
  • WE CAN ACCESS HIS JOY ANYTIME WE
  • 01:02:59.110 --> 01:03:00.080
  • WANT.
  • 01:03:00.080 --> 01:03:01.240
  • WE CAN ACCESS HEALING WHENEVER
  • 01:03:01.240 --> 01:03:02.150
  • WE WANT.
  • 01:03:02.150 --> 01:03:03.030
  • WE CAN ACCESS EVEN THE GIFTS OF
  • 01:03:03.030 --> 01:03:03.290
  • THE SPIRIT.
  • 01:03:03.290 --> 01:03:05.180
  • PEOPLE SAY, "WELL, THAT'S AS THE
  • 01:03:05.180 --> 01:03:06.100
  • SPIRIT WILLS, LEON."
  • 01:03:06.100 --> 01:03:07.230
  • WELL, LISTEN.
  • 01:03:07.230 --> 01:03:09.000
  • IF-- THE BIBLE SAYS, "DESIRE TO
  • 01:03:09.000 --> 01:03:09.220
  • USE SPIRITUAL GIFTS, BUT PURSUE

  • LOVE."
  • 01:03:11.130 --> 01:03:13.010
  • SO IF I'VE GOT A SITUATION,
  • 01:03:13.010 --> 01:03:15.020
  • AND THEN I GO, "OH, I
  • 01:03:15.020 --> 01:03:15.190
  • SURE HOPE THE GIFTS WOULD BE IN
  • 01:03:15.190 --> 01:03:16.260
  • OPERATION NOW,"
  • 01:03:16.260 --> 01:03:18.240
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT GOES,
  • 01:03:18.240 --> 01:03:19.230
  • "OH, NOT TODAY."
  • 01:03:19.230 --> 01:03:20.150

  • IT'S JUST HE PROBABLY KNOWS THE

  • BEST WAY TO MOVE.
  • 01:03:25.110 --> 01:03:28.010
  • MAYBE THAT PERSON CAN BE HEALED
  • 01:03:28.010 --> 01:03:28.230
  • WITH A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE THAT
  • 01:03:28.230 --> 01:03:29.290
  • ENDS ALL THE CRAZY FEAR THAT'S
  • 01:03:29.290 --> 01:03:32.070
  • DESTROYING THAT STOMACH AND THE

  • BOWELS.
  • 01:03:33.070 --> 01:03:34.280
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
  • 01:03:34.280 --> 01:03:36.070
  • HE CAN HEAL YOU WITH A WORD OF
  • 01:03:36.070 --> 01:03:37.130
  • KNOWLEDGE, WITH A WORD OF
  • 01:03:37.130 --> 01:03:38.020
  • WISDOM, WITH THE GIFTS OF
  • 01:03:38.020 --> 01:03:39.000
  • HEALINGS OR WITH A-- LIKE, SO
  • 01:03:39.000 --> 01:03:39.260
  • WHEN WE BEGIN TO WORK WITH
  • 01:03:39.260 --> 01:03:40.150
  • HOLY SPIRIT, WE BECOME THESE
  • 01:03:40.150 --> 01:03:41.070
  • SUPER-PEOPLE.
  • 01:03:41.070 --> 01:03:43.060
  • NOW, I'M USING HEALING ISSUES,

  • KNOW, THAT TEENAGER, AND GOD
  • 01:03:45.270 --> 01:03:48.240
  • BEGINS TO GUIDE HER AS TO WHAT
  • 01:03:48.240 --> 01:03:49.290
  • FRIENDS TO LET IN THE HOUSE AND
  • 01:03:49.290 --> 01:03:50.270
  • WHAT TO SHUT DOWN, AND WHEN
  • 01:03:50.270 --> 01:03:52.070
  • SHE'S MISSING ONE DAY, EVEN
  • 01:03:52.070 --> 01:03:53.200
  • WHERE TO GO AND TO WHICH BAR TO
  • 01:03:53.200 --> 01:03:55.100
  • PICK HER UP AND SAY, "SWEETIE,
  • 01:03:55.100 --> 01:03:56.220
  • YOU'RE COMING WITH ME."
  • 01:03:56.220 --> 01:03:57.150
  • I'VE SEEN THAT.
  • 01:03:57.150 --> 01:03:59.010
  • WHETHER IT'S A MAN WHO'S BUYING
  • 01:03:59.010 --> 01:03:59.230
  • MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, AND HE GETS

  • SHOWS HIM HOW TO MAKE THAT SALE,
  • 01:04:04.150 --> 01:04:07.150
  • AND HE USES WORDS THAT BRING IN
  • 01:04:07.150 --> 01:04:09.200
  • MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
  • 01:04:09.200 --> 01:04:11.050
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY IS-- REALLY,

  • WE'RE PUTTING WORDS TO IT
  • 01:04:17.290 --> 01:04:19.090
  • BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS,
  • 01:04:19.090 --> 01:04:20.230
  • ESPECIALLY RELIGIOUS CHRISTIANS,
  • 01:04:20.230 --> 01:04:22.100

  • BUT, OH, MY, IF WE COULD
  • 01:04:31.260 --> 01:04:33.000

  • TESTAMENT SAYING, "HOPE DEFERRED
