  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: WHY DOES
  • 00:00:12.220 --> 00:00:15.220
  • GOD ALLOW STORMS IN OUR LIVES?
  • 00:00:15.220 --> 00:00:18.140
  • TO TEACH US THAT WE NEED HIM
  • 00:00:18.140 --> 00:00:21.000
  • EVERY DAY AND EVERY HOUR
  • 00:00:21.000 --> 00:00:22.220
  • OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:00:22.220 --> 00:00:24.170
  • STORMS DON'T JUST GRADUALLY,
  • 00:00:24.170 --> 00:00:26.200
  • PROGRESSIVELY COME.
  • 00:00:26.200 --> 00:00:28.190
  • FOX NEWS DOES NOT PUT ON
  • 00:00:28.190 --> 00:00:30.210
  • A NEWS FLASH,
  • 00:00:30.210 --> 00:00:32.120
  • "THUS SAITH GOD,
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:33.220
  • 'A STORM IS COMING TO YOU.'"
  • 00:00:33.220 --> 00:00:36.080
  • STORMS HAPPEN JUST LIKE THAT,
  • 00:00:36.080 --> 00:00:39.010
  • LIKE LIGHTNING OUT
  • 00:00:39.010 --> 00:00:40.060
  • OF A BLUE SKY.
  • 00:00:40.060 --> 00:00:42.060
  • BUT THOSE STORMS COME FROM GOD
  • 00:00:42.060 --> 00:00:44.160
  • TO DEMONSTRATE HIS POWER,
  • 00:00:44.160 --> 00:00:46.190
  • HIS MIGHT,
  • 00:00:46.190 --> 00:00:47.290
  • HIS MAJESTY,
  • 00:00:47.290 --> 00:00:49.140
  • HIS ABSOLUTE CONTROL OVER ALL
  • 00:00:49.160 --> 00:00:52.160
  • OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:00:52.160 --> 00:00:54.040
  • GOD USES STORMS TO SHAKE US OUT
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:56.220
  • OF OUR COMFORT ZONES INTO A
  • 00:00:56.220 --> 00:00:59.030
  • POSITION OF COMPLETE DEPENDENCE
  • 00:00:59.250 --> 00:01:02.270
  • UPON GOD FOR OUR SURVIVAL.
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:05.250
  • GOD WILL GET YOU TO THE PLACE
  • 00:01:05.250 --> 00:01:08.020
  • THAT IF HE DOESN'T COME
  • 00:01:08.020 --> 00:01:09.040
  • THROUGH,
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:10.020
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE IT.
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:11.210
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU'RE DISCOVERING
  • 00:01:11.210 --> 00:01:13.170
  • HOW REALLY GOOD GOD IS.
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:17.100
  • IN THE TEXT,
  • 00:01:17.100 --> 00:01:18.050
  • THE 12 DISCIPLES ARE ON THE SEA
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:20.110
  • OF GALILEE WITH GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:01:20.110 --> 00:01:23.000
  • IN THE FORM OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:24.200
  • IN THE BOAT,
  • 00:01:24.200 --> 00:01:26.000
  • AND THE STORM COMES UP.
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:27.290
  • IT WAS NO SURPRISE TO JESUS
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:30.110
  • IT WAS COMING.
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:31.220
  • HE LED THEM INTO THE STORM.
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:33.240
  • HE GOT IN THE BOAT WITH THEM
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:35.220
  • TO INCREASE THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:38.010
  • LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:01:38.010 --> 00:01:39.060
  • EVERY STORM IS GOD'S SEMINAR
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:43.150
  • ON FAITH FOR YOU.
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:46.040
  • LISTEN TO THIS TODAY.
  • 00:01:46.040 --> 00:01:48.080
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SEE YOURSELF
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:49.080
  • IN IT SEVERAL TIMES.
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:50.190
  • READ WITH ME MATTHEW 8:23
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:52.220
  • AND FOLLOWING.
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:53.090
  • READY?
  • 00:01:53.090 --> 00:01:54.010
  • "AND WHEN HE HAD ENTERED
  • 00:01:54.010 --> 00:01:55.160
  • IN THE SHIP,
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:56.240
  • HIS DISCIPLES FOLLOWED HIM.
  • 00:01:56.240 --> 00:01:58.280
  • AND BEHOLD,
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:01:59.200
  • THERE AROSE A GREAT TEMPEST
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:01.160
  • IN THE SEA.
  • 00:02:01.160 --> 00:02:02.260
  • IN SO MUCH THAT THE SHIP
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:04.050
  • WAS COVERED WITH THE WAVES,
  • 00:02:04.050 --> 00:02:06.030
  • BUT HE WAS ASLEEP."
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:07.260
  • SEE HOW DISTURBED HE WAS.
  • 00:02:07.260 --> 00:02:09.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:10.270
  • AND HIS DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:12.260
  • AND AWOKE HIM,
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:13.160
  • SAYING, "LORD SAVE US,
  • 00:02:13.160 --> 00:02:16.020
  • OR WE'RE GOING TO PERISH."
  • 00:02:16.020 --> 00:02:17.290
  • AND HE SAID UNTO THEM,
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:19.250
  • "WHY ARE YOU FEARFUL?"
  • 00:02:20.260 --> 00:02:23.260
  • AND THAT'S WHAT GOD IS ASKING
  • 00:02:23.260 --> 00:02:25.050
  • MOST OF YOU RIGHT NOW AND THOSE
  • 00:02:25.050 --> 00:02:27.240
  • OF YOU WATCHING BY TELEVISION
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:29.270
  • ACROSS AMERICA.
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:31.070
  • YOU'RE IN A GREAT STORM.
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:33.150
  • WHY ARE YOU FEARFUL?
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:37.090
  • FATHER GOD,
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:38.290
  • WE'VE COME TO THE HOUSE
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:39.240
  • OF THE LORD TODAY.
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:42.030
  • I ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:43.190
  • US RECOGNIZE THE SPIRIT OF FEAR
  • 00:02:43.190 --> 00:02:46.020
  • IN OUR LIVES AND GIVE US
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:48.060
  • THE COURAGE TO CRUSH IT,
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:50.050
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:51.250
  • AMEN.
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:52.240
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:02:52.240 --> 00:02:53.160
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:56.170
  • JESUS ASKED HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:02:56.170 --> 00:02:59.060
  • "WHY ARE YOU FEARFUL?"
  • 00:02:59.230 --> 00:03:02.250
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:03.260
  • "WHY ARE YOU FEARFUL?"
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:07.220
  • IN MY RESEARCH OF THIS SERMON,
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:09.070
  • I DISCOVERED SOMETHING
  • 00:03:09.070 --> 00:03:10.100
  • THAT SHOCKED ME;
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:12.060
  • THAT AMERICA'S NUMBER ONE FEAR
  • 00:03:12.060 --> 00:03:14.010
  • IS THE FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING.
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:16.290
  • THAT NEVER CROSSED MY MIND.
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:19.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.150
  • AND THEN I WENT BACK TO THE AGE
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:22.170
  • SIX WHERE MY MOTHER'S
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:25.080
  • PERSISTENT GUIDANCE HELPED ME
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:27.260
  • FACE AND CONQUER APPEARING
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:30.140
  • IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:30.140 --> 00:03:32.000
  • ONE SATURDAY MORNING,
  • 00:03:32.000 --> 00:03:33.040
  • MOTHER TOLD ME AT BREAKFAST,
  • 00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:35.010
  • "YOU'RE GOING TO SING A SOLO
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:36.060
  • TOMORROW MORNING AT THE MAIN
  • 00:03:36.060 --> 00:03:37.130
  • WORSHIP SERVICE."
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:39.080
  • WE WENT FROM THE KITCHEN
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:40.200
  • TO THE PIANO WHERE MOTHER
  • 00:03:40.200 --> 00:03:42.130
  • TAUGHT ME THE SONG.
  • 00:03:42.130 --> 00:03:43.090
  • NOW MOTHER ALWAYS HAD A SWITCH
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:45.190
  • ABOUT THAT LONG ON TOP
  • 00:03:45.190 --> 00:03:46.280
  • OF THE PIANO.
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:48.150
  • IT WAS HER MOTIVATIONAL TOOL.
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:51.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:51.210 --> 00:03:52.230
  • THIS IS A SONG I'D NEVER HEARD.
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:55.000
  • I WAS GOING TO LEARN ALL OF IT
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:56.170
  • AND SING IT TOMORROW,
  • 00:03:56.170 --> 00:03:58.030
  • AND WITH ABSOLUTE PERFECTION,
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:00.210
  • "THE ONE LOST SHEEP."
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:01.280
  • WAS I AFRAID?
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:02.230
  • NO, BECAUSE INSTANTLY
  • 00:04:02.230 --> 00:04:04.180
  • I HAD A PLAN.
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:06.150
  • NEXT SUNDAY MORNING,
  • 00:04:06.150 --> 00:04:07.240
  • THE NEXT DAY, JUST BEFORE DAD
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:10.040
  • WENT TO THE PULPIT,
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:11.070
  • I WALKED UP ON THE PLATFORM
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:13.090
  • AND GOT RIGHT BEHIND THE PULPIT.
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:15.190
  • THE PULPIT WAS A PIECE OF WOOD
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:17.130
  • ABOUT THIS WIDE
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:18.260
  • AND ABOUT THIS TALL.
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:20.160
  • YOU COULD JUST SEE MY FATHER
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:21.270
  • FROM HIS CHIN UP.
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:23.120
  • MY NOSE WAS ABOUT THIS FAR.
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:25.270
  • I COULDN'T SEE ANYBODY,
  • 00:04:25.270 --> 00:04:27.160
  • AND NOBODY COULD SEE ME.
  • 00:04:27.160 --> 00:04:29.010
  • AND THAT WAS MY PLAN.
  • 00:04:29.010 --> 00:04:30.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:30.260 --> 00:04:32.080
  • HOWEVER, MY PERSISTENT MOTHER
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:35.200
  • LEFT THE PIANO,
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.250
  • WALKED UP ON THE PLATFORM,
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.230
  • GOT ME BY THE SHOULDER,
  • 00:04:38.230 --> 00:04:40.230
  • DRUG ME AROUND TO THE FRONT,
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:43.230
  • AND SAID,
  • 00:04:43.230 --> 00:04:44.070
  • "LOOK STRAIGHT OUT THERE."
  • 00:04:44.070 --> 00:04:46.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:47.100
  • AND THEN SHE WHISPERED,
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:49.090
  • "STARE AT THE CLOCK."
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:52.060
  • IT WAS 11:15.
  • 00:04:52.060 --> 00:04:55.060
  • WE'LL NEVER FORGET.
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:57.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:04:59.100
  • AND I SUNG ALL THREE VERSES
  • 00:05:00.160 --> 00:05:03.160
  • OF THAT SONG.
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:05.150
  • AND WHEN I SAT DOWN
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:06.170
  • AND WAS STILL ALIVE,
  • 00:05:06.170 --> 00:05:08.150
  • I WAS CHANGED FOREVER.
  • 00:05:08.150 --> 00:05:10.180
  • I HAD FACED A NEW FEAR.
  • 00:05:10.180 --> 00:05:12.260
  • AND THANKS TO MOTHER'S SWITCH
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:14.230
  • AND HER ETERNAL PERSISTENCE,
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:16.260
  • THERE WAS A NEW DAY IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:05:17.030 --> 00:05:20.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:25.150
  • THE ESSENCE OF THAT STORY IS
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:27.070
  • YOU HAVE TO ADMIT YOUR FEAR
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:29.110
  • AND FACE YOUR FEAR BEFORE
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:31.090
  • YOU CAN CONQUER YOUR FEAR.
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:33.170
  • WHEN AMERICA WAS ATTACKED
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:34.210
  • BY JAPAN ON DECEMBER 7, 1941,
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:38.230
  • AMERICANS GATHERED AROUND
  • 00:05:38.230 --> 00:05:40.000
  • THE RADIO.
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:41.190
  • AND THEY HEARD THE VOICE
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:43.180
  • OF PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT,
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:45.010
  • SAYING, "WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:48.050
  • BUT FEAR ITSELF."
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:49.260
  • AND I ASSURE YOU
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:50.280
  • THE NATION WAS SHAKEN,
  • 00:05:50.280 --> 00:05:53.030
  • BECAUSE WE WERE NOT IN ONE OF
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:55.020
  • THE WARS YOU'VE KNOWN WHERE YOU
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:57.090
  • GO OVER AND FIGHT 12 MONTHS
  • 00:05:57.090 --> 00:05:59.050
  • AND COME HOME.
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:00.220
  • IT WAS A WAR FOR OUR SURVIVAL.
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:03.140
  • THOSE BOYS WERE DRAFTED FOR THE
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:05.170
  • DURATION OF THE WAR PLUS SIX.
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:08.180
  • THAT MEANT WE INTENDED TO HAVE
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:10.130
  • VICTORY OR WE WERE GOING TO BE
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:12.090
  • GOOSE STEPPING.
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:13.190
  • SO WE HAD A LOT TO BE CONCERNED
  • 00:06:13.190 --> 00:06:15.210
  • ABOUT.
  • 00:06:15.210 --> 00:06:17.020
  • YOU'VE NEVER LIVED IN A WAR
  • 00:06:17.020 --> 00:06:18.120
  • LIKE THAT IF YOU'VE LIVED
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:20.110
  • BEYOND THE SECOND WORLD WAR.
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:24.220
  • WE DID NOT HAVE FEAR.
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:27.130
  • AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WENT
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:28.250
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.010
  • AND WE WORKED HARD, FURIOUSLY,
  • 00:06:30.080 --> 00:06:33.080
  • BECAUSE WE HAD AN ENEMY
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:34.160
  • THAT WE HAD TO DEFEAT
  • 00:06:34.160 --> 00:06:36.130
  • SO THAT WE COULD STILL BE
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.210
  • THE LAND OF THE FREE.
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:38.280
  • THANK GOD FOR THE MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:06:38.280 --> 00:06:41.000
  • WHO SERVED US THEN AND NOW
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.210
  • IN THE U.S. MILITARY.
  • 00:06:42.240 --> 00:06:45.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:06:47.020 --> 00:06:50.020
  • IF YOU REPRESS YOUR FEAR --
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:51.240
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:53.000
  • -- YOU DRIVE IT INTO YOUR
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:54.060
  • SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WHERE IT
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:56.160
  • FESTERS AND MANIFEST ITSELF
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:59.130
  • YEARS LATER IN WEIRD,
  • 00:06:59.130 --> 00:07:01.190
  • COMPULSIVE, DESTRUCTIVE ACTS
  • 00:07:01.190 --> 00:07:04.090
  • AND ATTITUDES THAT DESTROY
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:06.050
  • YOUR LIFE AND THE LIFE
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:08.000
  • OF EVERYONE THAT'S AROUND YOU.
  • 00:07:08.000 --> 00:07:10.040
  • YOU DON'T EVER GET AWAY FROM IT
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:12.040
  • UNTIL YOU WHIP IT!
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:13.250
  • LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:15.200
  • THROUGH KING DAVID.
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:16.260
  • "I SOUGHT THE LORD
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:17.270
  • AND HE HEARD ME,
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:18.280
  • AND HE DELIVERED ME FROM ALL
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:20.050
  • OF MY FEAR.
  • 00:07:20.050 --> 00:07:21.140
  • I WILL FEAR NO EVIL,
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:22.270
  • FOR THOU ART WITH ME."
  • 00:07:22.270 --> 00:07:24.140
  • WHEN THE FEAR KNOCKS
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:25.110
  • AT YOUR DOOR,
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:26.210
  • SEND FAITH TO ANSWER,
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:28.150
  • AND NO ONE WILL BE THERE.
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:30.070
  • ISAIAH WROTE,
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:31.130
  • "I WILL TRUST AND I WILL NOT
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:33.100
  • BE AFRAID."
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:34.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:07:34.110 --> 00:07:35.090
  • "I WILL TRUST AND NOT
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:37.060
  • BE AFRAID."
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:38.220
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT BEGINS
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:40.010
  • WITH AN ANGEL TELLING
  • 00:07:40.010 --> 00:07:41.140
  • THE VIRGIN MARY,
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:42.280
  • "FEAR NOT; FOR THOU HATH FOUND
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:44.260
  • FAVOR WITH GOD."
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:46.280
  • WHY SHOULD MARY FEAR?
  • 00:07:46.280 --> 00:07:48.240
  • BECAUSE IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:51.020
  • WHEN A GIRL WAS FOUND TO BE
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:52.080
  • PREGNANT WITHOUT A HUSBAND,
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:53.240
  • SHE WAS STONED TO DEATH.
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:55.100
  • SHE HAD A REASON TO BE FEARFUL.
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:57.210
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT ENDS
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:58.250
  • WITH JESUS TELLING JOHN
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:00.140
  • ON THE ISLE OF PATMOS,
  • 00:08:00.140 --> 00:08:01.280
  • "FEAR NOT," "FEAR NOT,"
  • 00:08:01.280 --> 00:08:04.030
  • "I AM THE FIRST
  • 00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:05.140
  • AND I AM THE LAST.
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:06.280
  • I AM HE THAT WAS,
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:08.180
  • AND HE THAT IS,
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:09.280
  • AND HE THAT SHALL BE
  • 00:08:09.280 --> 00:08:11.080
  • FOREVER MORE."
  • 00:08:11.080 --> 00:08:12.120
  • "I AM THE LION OF THE TRIBE
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:14.060
  • OF JUDAH."
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:15.040
  • "I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA,
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:17.060
  • THE FIRST AND THE END."
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:19.030
  • FEAR FALLS BEFORE THE FORTRESS
  • 00:08:19.030 --> 00:08:21.250
  • OF FAITH.
  • 00:08:21.250 --> 00:08:22.260
  • MEN FEAR MEN BECAUSE THEY DO
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:25.050
  • NOT FEAR GOD.
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:26.240
  • DON'T LET ANOTHER PERSON RAMROD
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:29.160
  • YOUR LIFE INTO THE DIRT!
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:31.150
  • BE DRIVEN BY THE DREAMS GOD
  • 00:08:31.150 --> 00:08:33.220
  • GIVES YOU FOR YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:35.260
  • NOT THE OPINION
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:37.040
  • OF OTHER PEOPLE!
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:39.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:45.070
  • WHAT ARE TWO KINDS OF FEAR?
  • 00:08:45.070 --> 00:08:47.120
  • THERE'S FIRST,
  • 00:08:47.120 --> 00:08:48.180
  • THE EMOTION OF FEAR.
  • 00:08:48.180 --> 00:08:50.090
  • THAT'S GOD GIVEN.
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:52.110
  • AND I SEE SOME OF YOU MACHO,
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:54.100
  • JOHN WAYNE TYPES FLEXING
  • 00:08:54.100 --> 00:08:56.080
  • YOUR SHOULDERS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:57.180
  • THAT'S NOT ME.
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:08:59.070
  • I ASSURE YOU,
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:00.060
  • IF YOU'RE WALKING THROUGH
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:01.000
  • THE WOODS,
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:03.050
  • AND YOU STEP ON THE TAIL END
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:04.140
  • OF A RATTLESNAKE,
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:07.160
  • SUDDENLY YOUR JOHN WAYNEISM
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:10.060
  • WILL MELT.
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:12.010
  • YOU'LL BE VERY CONCERNED
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:13.060
  • ABOUT YOUR SURVIVAL.
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:16.000
  • THEN THERE'S THE SPIRIT OF FEAR
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:18.140
  • THAT COMES FROM THE PRINCE
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.130
  • OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:20.160
  • GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT
  • 00:09:20.160 --> 00:09:22.150
  • OF FEAR.
  • 00:09:22.150 --> 00:09:24.000
  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
  • 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:25.080
  • GOD GIVES YOU THE EMOTION
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:26.240
  • OF FEAR TO HELP YOU.
  • 00:09:26.240 --> 00:09:29.110
  • THE PROBLEM IS NOT HOW TO GET
  • 00:09:29.110 --> 00:09:31.020
  • RID OF IT.
  • 00:09:31.020 --> 00:09:31.270
  • THE PROBLEM IS HOW
  • 00:09:31.270 --> 00:09:34.090
  • TO IDENTIFY IT,
  • 00:09:34.090 --> 00:09:35.150
  • TO BRIDLE IT,
  • 00:09:35.150 --> 00:09:36.050
  • AND HELP IT --
  • 00:09:36.050 --> 00:09:37.110
  • CAUSE IT TO HELP YOU REACH
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:38.140
  • YOUR OBJECTIVE.
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:40.030
  • MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH THIS
  • 00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:42.090
  • KIND OF EXTREME FEAR HAPPENED
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:46.130
  • WHEN I WAS EIGHT YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:09:46.130 --> 00:09:48.190
  • MY FATHER HAD KILLED A PANTHER
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:50.090
  • BEHIND OUR HOUSE ABOUT THREE
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:53.000
  • MILES DOWN THE RIVER BOTTOM.
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:56.020
  • AND HE'D SIT AROUND THE FAMILY
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:58.240
  • TABLE,
  • 00:09:58.240 --> 00:09:59.110
  • TELLING FAMILY AND FRIENDS
  • 00:09:59.110 --> 00:10:01.170
  • ABOUT HOW THAT PANTHER SCREAMED,
  • 00:10:01.170 --> 00:10:04.100
  • (HISSING)
  • 00:10:04.100 --> 00:10:06.050
  • JUST BEFORE HE SHOT IT.
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:08.280
  • AND I'D HEARD THAT
  • 00:10:08.280 --> 00:10:09.260
  • AND IT WENT INTO MY BRAIN
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:10.270
  • LIKE QUICK SILVER.
  • 00:10:10.270 --> 00:10:12.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:14.280
  • MY PARENTS LEFT THE HOUSE
  • 00:10:14.280 --> 00:10:16.250
  • TWO NIGHTS LATER TO GO VISIT
  • 00:10:16.250 --> 00:10:18.030
  • CHURCH MEMBERS.
  • 00:10:18.030 --> 00:10:19.130
  • IT WAS NIGHT.
  • 00:10:19.130 --> 00:10:20.240
  • MOTHER TOLD ME TO GO BURN
  • 00:10:20.240 --> 00:10:21.240
  • THE TRASH.
  • 00:10:21.240 --> 00:10:23.110
  • BOYS AND GIRLS IN THE COUNTRY,
  • 00:10:23.110 --> 00:10:25.180
  • THERE IS NO TRASH PICK UP.
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:28.030
  • YOU CARRY YOUR TRASH
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:29.130
  • ABOUT 50 YARDS BEHIND THE HOUSE,
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:31.260
  • AND THERE'S A PLACE
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:32.150
  • WHERE YOU BURN IT.
  • 00:10:32.150 --> 00:10:34.040
  • I WALKED OUT TO THAT TRASH DUMP,
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:36.220
  • AND IT'S SURROUNDED BY WEEDS,
  • 00:10:36.220 --> 00:10:39.010
  • NORTH, SOUTH, AND EAST,
  • 00:10:39.010 --> 00:10:41.100
  • AND THE HOUSE IS BEHIND ME.
  • 00:10:41.100 --> 00:10:43.140
  • AND JUST AS I'M GETTING READY
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:44.210
  • TO SET IT DOWN,
  • 00:10:44.210 --> 00:10:45.230
  • I HEAR
  • 00:10:45.230 --> 00:10:46.270
  • (HISSING)
  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:49.150
  • I THOUGHT, MY GOD;
  • 00:10:49.150 --> 00:10:50.170
  • I'M LUNCH MEAT.
  • 00:10:50.170 --> 00:10:52.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:10:52.060 --> 00:10:54.110
  • I DON'T REMEMBER MY FEET
  • 00:10:54.110 --> 00:10:55.240
  • HITTING THE GROUND AS I TAKE
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:57.210
  • OFF BACK FOR THE HOUSE.
  • 00:10:57.210 --> 00:10:59.200
  • I HIT THE DOOR.
  • 00:10:59.200 --> 00:11:00.220
  • IT WAS SHUT,
  • 00:11:00.220 --> 00:11:02.040
  • LOCKED, BY THE WAY.
  • 00:11:02.040 --> 00:11:04.060
  • BANG!
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:05.000
  • I HIT THE PANE AND BROKE IT
  • 00:11:05.000 --> 00:11:07.010
  • OUT, UNLOCKED IT,
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:08.180
  • WENT IN AND SLAMMED THE DOOR.
  • 00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:09.260
  • AND THEN IT DAWNED ON ME,
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:12.000
  • IF THAT WAS A REAL PANTHER,
  • 00:11:12.000 --> 00:11:13.210
  • I'D HAVE BEEN DONE RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:16.050
  • AND THEN I HEARD THE SOUND OF
  • 00:11:16.050 --> 00:11:17.220
  • LAUGHTER COMING FROM THE WEEDS.
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:21.120
  • IT WAS MY OLDER BROTHER.
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:24.100
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:25.290
  • HE HAD LOCKED THE DOOR,
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:27.070
  • SLIPPED OUT THE SIDE,
  • 00:11:27.070 --> 00:11:28.270
  • WENT OUT IN THE WEEDS,
  • 00:11:28.270 --> 00:11:30.110
  • AND GOT THERE.
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:31.240
  • AND WHEN I GOT JUST RIGHT,
  • 00:11:31.240 --> 00:11:33.230
  • READY TO BURN THE TRASH,
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:35.180
  • HE SCARED THE LIFE OUT OF ME.
  • 00:11:36.210 --> 00:11:39.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:40.260
  • POINT: HEALTHY FEAR CAN KEEP YOU
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:44.090
  • ALIVE.
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:46.070
  • HEALTHY FEAR CAN KEEP YOU ALIVE.
  • 00:11:47.190 --> 00:11:50.190
  • FEAR WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:11:50.190 --> 00:11:52.060
  • THIS IS A STORY TOLD
  • 00:11:52.060 --> 00:11:53.100
  • BY A DOCTOR OF HIS 50-YEAR-OLD,
  • 00:11:53.100 --> 00:11:55.170
  • MALE PATIENT.
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:56.230
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:11:56.230 --> 00:11:57.080
  • YOU'RE IN TERRIBLE SHAPE.
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:11:58.170
  • I'LL MOVE RIGHT ALONG.
  • 00:11:58.170 --> 00:12:01.090
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:12:01.090 --> 00:12:02.090
  • ABOUT THIS IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:12:02.090 --> 00:12:04.060
  • YOU'VE GOT --
  • 00:12:04.060 --> 00:12:04.270

  • OF YOUR OVERBEARING WIFE,
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:09.120
  • AND TELL HER TO GET ON A BUDGET
  • 00:12:09.120 --> 00:12:11.040
  • AND LIVE ON IT.
  • 00:12:11.040 --> 00:12:12.150
  • AND SHE HAS TO START COOKING
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:14.200
  • NUTRITIOUS MEALS.
  • 00:12:14.200 --> 00:12:16.120
  • SHE HAS TO GET YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:18.000
  • OFF YOUR BACK SO YOU CAN RELAX
  • 00:12:18.000 --> 00:12:20.190
  • AND HAVE ENOUGH HOURS TO SLEEP.
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:22.200
  • AND YOU HAVE TO STOP WORKING

  • 80 HOURS A WEEK TO PAY FOR ALL
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:26.150
  • OF THE JUNK SHE'S BUYING.
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:28.170
  • THIS IS WHAT THE DOCTOR'S
  • 00:12:28.170 --> 00:12:29.110
  • TELLING.
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:30.130
  • YOU KNOW SOME OF YOU LADIES
  • 00:12:30.130 --> 00:12:31.050
  • ARE ALREADY LOOKING AT ME LIKE.

  • THE FEARFUL HUSBAND SAID

  • OFFICIAL IF IT CAME FROM YOU

  • TO MY WIFE.
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:54.120
  • SO THE DOCTOR PHONED HIS WIFE
  • 00:12:54.120 --> 00:12:56.170
  • AND TOLD HER THE NEWS.
  • 00:12:56.170 --> 00:12:57.290

  • 00:14:33.230 --> 00:14:34.190
  • PSEUDOINTELLECTUALS SAY --
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:36.050
  • AND YOU'LL HEAR THIS
  • 00:14:36.050 --> 00:14:36.270
  • IN THE UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:38.160
  • -- "IF YOU DON'T DRAW US
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:39.200
  • BY LOVE,
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:40.200
  • YOU CAN'T DRIVE US BY FEAR."
  • 00:14:40.200 --> 00:14:43.150
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:14:43.150 --> 00:14:44.230
  • IS THAT REALLY TRUE?
  • 00:14:44.230 --> 00:14:46.140
  • LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION.
  • 00:14:46.140 --> 00:14:47.290
  • WHY DO YOU PAY THE IRS?
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:50.230
  • BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO SEND CHECKS
  • 00:14:50.230 --> 00:14:53.050
  • TO THE IRS?
  • 00:14:53.050 --> 00:14:54.250
  • I DON'T THINK SO.
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:56.240
  • IT'S BECAUSE YOU FEAR LIVING
  • 00:14:56.240 --> 00:14:59.070
  • IN LEAVENSWORTH, THAT'S WHY.
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:02.190
  • WHY DO YOU TAKE OUT
  • 00:15:02.190 --> 00:15:03.200
  • FIRE INSURANCE?
  • 00:15:03.200 --> 00:15:05.080
  • BECAUSE YOU LOVE YOUR INSURANCE
  • 00:15:05.080 --> 00:15:07.040
  • AGENT?
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:08.080
  • I DON'T THINK SO.
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:09.240
  • IT'S BECAUSE THE FEAR OF FIRE
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:11.240
  • CAN WIPE YOU OUT.
  • 00:15:11.240 --> 00:15:14.140
  • GOD PLANTED THE EMOTION OF FEAR
  • 00:15:14.140 --> 00:15:16.070
  • IN OUR MORTAL NATURE
  • 00:15:16.070 --> 00:15:17.220
  • SO TO MAKE US UNEASY WITH SIN.
  • 00:15:17.220 --> 00:15:20.110
  • KING DAVID SAYS IN PSALMS 119,
  • 00:15:20.110 --> 00:15:23.030
  • "MY FLESH TREMBLES FOR FEAR
  • 00:15:23.030 --> 00:15:25.100
  • OF YOU..."
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:26.140
  • HEAR THAT.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:28.000
  • "MY FLESH TREMBLES FOR THE FEAR
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:30.100
  • OF YOU;
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:31.030
  • FOR I AM AFRAID
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:32.010
  • OF YOUR JUDGMENTS."

  • SERVE THE LORD WITH FEAR
  • 00:15:36.230 --> 00:15:38.060
  • AND TREMBLING.

  • AND YOU PERISH."
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:46.210
  • WHY FEAR GOD?
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:48.250
  • BECAUSE SOME DAY YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:15:48.250 --> 00:15:50.000
  • TO STAND IN GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 00:15:50.000 --> 00:15:51.250
  • AND IF YOU DON'T KEEP
  • 00:15:51.250 --> 00:15:52.240
  • HIS RULES,
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:53.260
  • YOU'RE GOING TO A VERY
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:55.080
  • REAL PLACE CALLED HELL.
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:57.120
  • IT'S THERE WHETHER YOU THINK
  • 00:15:57.120 --> 00:15:58.260
  • IT'S THERE OR NOT.
  • 00:15:59.000 --> 00:16:02.020
  • GOD IS NOT A DOTING GRANDFATHER,
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:04.030
  • SITTING BENIGNLY IN THE HEAVENS,
  • 00:16:04.030 --> 00:16:06.040
  • LOOKING AT OUR BIZARRE
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:07.080
  • BEHAVIOR, AND SAID,
  • 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:07.280
  • "WELL YOU GET A PASS THIS WEEK."
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:10.040
  • THIS IS THE LAW OF GOD
  • 00:16:10.040 --> 00:16:11.260
  • ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:16:11.260 --> 00:16:13.170
  • HE IS ALMIGHTY.
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:14.210
  • HE IS ALL POWERFUL.
  • 00:16:14.210 --> 00:16:16.080
  • HE IS THE JUDGE OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:18.220
  • AND SOME DAY WE MUST ALL APPEAR
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:20.230
  • BEFORE HIM AND GIVE AN ACCOUNT
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:23.040
  • OF THE DEEDS DONE IN OUR BODY.
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:25.140
  • IT'S NOT A MATTER OF IF YOU'RE
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:26.200
  • GOING TO BOW BEFORE GOD;
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.270
  • IT'S JUST WHEN ARE YOU GOING
  • 00:16:28.270 --> 00:16:30.170
  • TO BOW,
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:31.220
  • TODAY OR IN THE JUDGMENT BAR?
  • 00:16:31.220 --> 00:16:34.030
  • BUT YOU ARE GOING TO BOW
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:35.220
  • AT SOME POINT.
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:37.180
  • WHY ARE POLICEMEN BEING SHOT
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.130
  • IN THE STREETS?
  • 00:16:39.130 --> 00:16:41.100
  • BECAUSE THERE'S NO FEAR OF GOD.
  • 00:16:41.110 --> 00:16:44.110
  • THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD.
  • 00:16:44.110 --> 00:16:45.130
  • THEY'RE NOT EVEN AFRAID
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:46.090
  • OF THE LAW.
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:48.120
  • IF A RAPIST TRULY BELIEVED
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:49.240
  • HE WAS GOING TO FACE GOD IN THE
  • 00:16:49.240 --> 00:16:51.020
  • JUDGMENT IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARD
  • 00:16:51.020 --> 00:16:53.100
  • AND BE SENT TO HELL FOREVER,
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:55.000
  • THE RAPE PROBLEM IN AMERICA
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:56.140
  • WOULD BE OVER.
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:58.160
  • WHY IS THIS NATION SATURATED
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:17:00.160
  • WITH DRIVE-BY SHOOTINGS,
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:02.150
  • ANARCHISTS IN THE STREET,
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:04.010
  • CORRUPTION IN THE FBI,
  • 00:17:04.010 --> 00:17:06.180
  • CORRUPTION IN THE DEPARTMENT
  • 00:17:06.180 --> 00:17:08.000
  • OF JUSTICE?
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:09.110
  • THERE'S A SHADOW OF GOVERNMENT
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:10.190
  • TRYING TO OVERTAKE
  • 00:17:10.190 --> 00:17:13.150
  • THE LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT THAT
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:14.110
  • WAS VOTED IN BY THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:16.120
  • THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD.
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:18.280
  • WHY HAS THE SUPREME COURT
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:20.150
  • THROWN OUT
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:21.020
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS?
  • 00:17:21.020 --> 00:17:23.140
  • BECAUSE THE FEAR OF MAN,
  • 00:17:23.140 --> 00:17:25.220
  • WHEN IT'S GREATER THAN THE FEAR
  • 00:17:25.220 --> 00:17:26.280
  • OF GOD,
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:27.250
  • ALWAYS LEADS TO RUIN.
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:30.190
  • WE FEAR THE ACLU,
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:32.290
  • BUT WE HAVE NO FEAR OF GOD.
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:35.230
  • THE ACLU WRITES A LETTER
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:37.280
  • AND PEOPLE TREMBLE.
  • 00:17:37.280 --> 00:17:39.130
  • BUT WHEN GOD SPEAKS
  • 00:17:39.130 --> 00:17:40.200
  • IN HIS WORD,
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:42.050
  • WE GO TO SLEEP,
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:43.260
  • EVEN IN CHURCH SOMETIMES.
  • 00:17:43.260 --> 00:17:46.140
  • WE'VE KICKED THE PRINCE
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:47.250
  • OF PEACE OUT OF OUR SCHOOL.
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:50.140
  • AND NOW THEY HAVE BECOME A WAR
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.180
  • ZONE OF DEATH AND SUFFERING.
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:53.260
  • WHY ARE SOME CONGRESSMEN USING
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:56.280
  • A SLUSH FUND PAID WITH YOUR
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:59.080
  • TAX DOLLARS TO PAY PROSTITUTES
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:02.020
  • AND CALL GIRLS?
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:03.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:18:03.210 --> 00:18:04.220
  • BECAUSE THERE'S CORRUPTION
  • 00:18:04.220 --> 00:18:06.120
  • IN THE SOUL OF AMERICA.
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:08.080
  • AND PEOPLE WILL NOT CALL IT
  • 00:18:08.080 --> 00:18:09.240
  • CORRUPTION.
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:10.270
  • SIN NEEDS TO BE CALLED SIN!
  • 00:18:11.080 --> 00:18:14.080
  • IT WILL NOT JUST GO AWAY!
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:16.070
  • IT MUST BE REPENTED OF
  • 00:18:16.070 --> 00:18:18.040
  • AND FORSAKEN!
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:19.220
  • GIVE THE LORD PRAISE
  • 00:18:19.220 --> 00:18:20.170
  • IN THE HOUSE.
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:22.180
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.200
  • NOW,
  • 00:18:24.200 --> 00:18:25.150
  • CONSIDER THE SPIRIT OF FEAR.
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:27.060
  • "GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:28.260
  • OF FEAR."
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:29.150
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:18:29.150 --> 00:18:30.140
  • "GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:32.100
  • OF FEAR."
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:33.140
  • DISEASE HAS KILLED
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:34.220
  • ITS THOUSANDS.
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:36.020
  • BUT THE SPIRIT OF FEAR HAS
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:37.140
  • KILLED ITS TEN THOUSANDS.
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:40.060
  • YOUR GREATEST CRISIS WILL COME
  • 00:18:40.060 --> 00:18:42.100
  • FROM THE FEAR OF TROUBLE,
  • 00:18:42.100 --> 00:18:44.030
  • NOT THE PRESENCE OF TREMBLING.
  • 00:18:44.030 --> 00:18:46.120
  • HEAR THAT.
  • 00:18:46.120 --> 00:18:47.160
  • YOUR GREATEST CRISIS WILL COME
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:49.290
  • FROM THE FEAR OF TROUBLE,
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:51.270
  • NOT THE PRESENCE OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:18:51.270 --> 00:18:54.010
  • THE SPIRIT OF FEAR WILL BREAK
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:55.150
  • YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:18:55.150 --> 00:18:56.270
  • IT WILL DESTROY YOUR DEFENSES.
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:59.090
  • IT WILL DISARM YOU IN THE DAY
  • 00:18:59.090 --> 00:19:01.100
  • OF BATTLE.
  • 00:19:01.100 --> 00:19:02.110
  • AND IT WILL BRING TERROR TO YOU
  • 00:19:02.110 --> 00:19:04.170
  • ON YOUR DEATH BED.
  • 00:19:04.170 --> 00:19:06.060
  • REGARDLESS OF YOUR PROFESSION
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:07.220
  • OF FAITH,
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:08.200
  • IF YOU LIVE WITH THE SPIRIT
  • 00:19:08.200 --> 00:19:10.080
  • OF FEAR -- LISTEN.
  • 00:19:10.080 --> 00:19:11.190
  • -- YOU ARE A PRACTICAL ATHEIST.
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:16.040
  • IF YOU LIVE WITH THE SPIRIT
  • 00:19:16.040 --> 00:19:18.080
  • OF FEAR,
  • 00:19:18.080 --> 00:19:19.080
  • YOU ARE A PRACTICAL ATHEIST.
  • 00:19:19.080 --> 00:19:22.070
  • YOU DON'T REALLY BELIEVE
  • 00:19:22.070 --> 00:19:24.270
  • WHAT GOD SAID.
  • 00:19:24.270 --> 00:19:27.050
  • WHEN YOU BELIEVE THIS,
  • 00:19:27.090 --> 00:19:30.090
  • THE SPIRIT OF FEAR IS NO MORE
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:33.000
  • A PART OF YOUR SPEECH.
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:34.180
  • IT'S NO MORE A PART
  • 00:19:34.180 --> 00:19:35.230
  • OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:35.230 --> 00:19:36.270
  • IT'S GONE!

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:43.230
  • SOME OF YOU HAD YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:19:43.230 --> 00:19:44.220
  • TELL YOU,
  • 00:19:44.220 --> 00:19:45.070
  • "WELL YOU CAN'T ACHIEVE
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:46.020
  • GREATNESS."
  • 00:19:46.020 --> 00:19:48.100
  • SOME OF YOU HAD YOUR FRIENDS
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:49.090
  • TELL YOU THAT.
  • 00:19:49.090 --> 00:19:51.210
  • WHY NOT YOU?
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:54.050
  • WHY NOT YOU?
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:57.030
  • IF GOD IS GOD,
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:19:58.070
  • AND THE WORD OF GOD IS TRUE,
  • 00:19:58.070 --> 00:19:59.180
  • WHY NOT YOU?
  • 00:19:59.180 --> 00:20:01.200
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:02.080
  • ONE OF THE MY FAVORITE STORIES
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:03.120
  • IN HISTORY BEGINS IN 1519
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:07.110
  • WHEN AN EXTRA --
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:08.220
  • EXTRAORDINARY MAN SET SAIL
  • 00:20:08.220 --> 00:20:10.270
  • ON THE FINAL LEG OF A VOYAGE
  • 00:20:10.270 --> 00:20:13.170
  • FROM THE SHORES OF CUBA
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:14.230
  • TO THE YUCATAN PENINSULA.
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:17.030
  • HIS NAME IS HERNAN CORTEZ.
  • 00:20:17.190 --> 00:20:20.190
  • HE HAD 11 SHIPS,
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:21.270
  • 500 SOLDIERS,
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.190
  • 100 SAILORS,
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:24.230
  • AND 16 HORSES.
  • 00:20:24.230 --> 00:20:26.220
  • THEIR MISSION WAS TO CAPTURE
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:29.070
  • THE WORLD'S RICHEST TREASURE,
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:31.170
  • A TREASURE OF GOLD AND SILVER,
  • 00:20:31.170 --> 00:20:34.010
  • AND JEWELS,
  • 00:20:34.010 --> 00:20:35.130
  • AND ARTIFACTS THAT WERE
  • 00:20:35.130 --> 00:20:37.230
  • TRULY WEALTH UNMEASURED.
  • 00:20:38.170 --> 00:20:41.170
  • THIS TREASURE HAD BEEN HELD
  • 00:20:41.170 --> 00:20:43.160
  • BY THE SAME ARMY FOR 600 YEARS.
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:46.040
  • ARMY AFTER ARMY,
  • 00:20:46.040 --> 00:20:47.280
  • CONQUEROR AFTER CONQUEROR,
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:50.080
  • HAD TRIED TO TAKE IT
  • 00:20:50.080 --> 00:20:51.260
  • AND FAILED.
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:55.020
  • CORTEZ GOT A GROUP OF PEOPLE
  • 00:20:55.020 --> 00:20:56.110
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:20:56.110 --> 00:20:58.080
  • AND HALF WAY THROUGH THE VOYAGE,
  • 00:20:58.080 --> 00:21:00.060
  • MANY OF THE SOLDIERS
  • 00:21:00.060 --> 00:21:01.070
  • AND SAILORS BECAME FEARFUL.
  • 00:21:01.070 --> 00:21:04.020
  • THEY SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:21:04.020 --> 00:21:04.200
  • MR. CORTEZ, WE'RE NOT SURE
  • 00:21:04.200 --> 00:21:06.230
  • ABOUT THIS MISSION.
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:07.250
  • THIS HAS BEEN TRIED
  • 00:21:07.250 --> 00:21:09.040
  • FOR 600 YEARS WITHOUT SUCCESS.
  • 00:21:09.040 --> 00:21:11.230
  • WHOLE ARMIES HAVE DIED OUT HERE
  • 00:21:11.230 --> 00:21:14.200
  • TRYING TO DO WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:21:14.200 --> 00:21:15.250
  • TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:18.210
  • LET ME TRANSFORM THAT
  • 00:21:18.210 --> 00:21:19.190
  • TO CHURCH TALK.
  • 00:21:19.190 --> 00:21:21.090
  • PASTOR, THIS PROJECT IS TOO BIG.
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:24.080
  • MAYBE IT'S TOO AMBITIOUS.
  • 00:21:24.080 --> 00:21:26.020
  • MAYBE WE SHOULD DOWNSIZE
  • 00:21:26.020 --> 00:21:27.230
  • THIS VISION JUST A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:21:28.090 --> 00:21:31.090
  • HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I HEARD
  • 00:21:31.090 --> 00:21:32.100
  • THAT IN 50 YEARS?
  • 00:21:32.100 --> 00:21:34.190
  • BACK TO CORTEZ.
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:36.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:38.130
  • CORTEZ LISTENED PATIENTLY
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:39.220
  • TO HIS FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:41.140
  • WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:42.220
  • THE YUCATAN PENINSULA,
  • 00:21:42.220 --> 00:21:44.050
  • CORTEZ GATHERED ALL OF
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:45.170
  • HIS FRIGHTENED MEN ON THE BEACH.
  • 00:21:45.170 --> 00:21:48.090
  • THEY GREW QUIET WAITING
  • 00:21:48.090 --> 00:21:49.220
  • FOR THEIR LEADER TO SPEAK.
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:52.030
  • THEY THOUGHT HE WAS GOING
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:53.010
  • TO SAY, YOU'RE RIGHT MEN.
  • 00:21:53.010 --> 00:21:54.070
  • YOU'RE FEARS ARE JUSTIFIED.
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:56.110
  • WE'LL REST FOR JUST A FEW DAYS,
  • 00:21:56.110 --> 00:21:58.170
  • AND THEN WE'RE OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:21:58.170 --> 00:22:01.190
  • NOT HARDLY.
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:04.080
  • THIS IS WHAT CORTEZ SAID
  • 00:22:04.080 --> 00:22:05.250
  • WHEN HE GOT THEM ALL TOGETHER,
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:07.200
  • "BURN THE BOATS."
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:11.030
  • WHAT DID YOU SAY?
  • 00:22:11.030 --> 00:22:13.020
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:13.020 --> 00:22:14.000
  • "BURN THE BOATS."
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:18.050
  • AND THEY BURNED EVERY ONE
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:19.020
  • OF THEM.
  • 00:22:19.020 --> 00:22:21.070
  • AND WHEN THEY BURNED EVERY ONE
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:22.090
  • OF THEM, HE SAID,
  • 00:22:22.090 --> 00:22:24.080
  • "IF WE GO HOME,
  • 00:22:24.080 --> 00:22:26.090
  • WE'RE GOING HOME
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:27.040
  • IN THEIR BOATS."
  • 00:22:27.040 --> 00:22:29.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:36.100
  • YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:22:36.100 --> 00:22:37.280
  • FEAR EVAPORATED.
  • 00:22:37.280 --> 00:22:40.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:40.080 --> 00:22:41.060
  • THOSE SOLDIERS FOUGHT
  • 00:22:41.060 --> 00:22:42.210
  • FURIOUSLY.
  • 00:22:42.210 --> 00:22:43.280
  • AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 600
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:45.220
  • YEARS, THAT TREASURE WAS TAKEN.
  • 00:22:45.220 --> 00:22:48.110
  • WHY?
  • 00:22:48.110 --> 00:22:49.040
  • BECAUSE THEIR FEARS WERE
  • 00:22:49.040 --> 00:22:50.240
  • CREMATED BY THOSE BURNING BOATS.
  • 00:22:50.240 --> 00:22:53.020
  • THEIR ONLY CHOICE WAS TO TAKE
  • 00:22:53.020 --> 00:22:55.130
  • THE TREASURE
  • 00:22:55.130 --> 00:22:56.080
  • AND TO WIN THE FIGHT.
  • 00:22:56.080 --> 00:22:58.050
  • SO LISTEN CLEARLY AS WE CLOSE.
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:01.100
  • WHEN FEAR GRABS YOU
  • 00:23:01.100 --> 00:23:02.150
  • BY THE THROAT,
  • 00:23:02.150 --> 00:23:03.290
  • SEND FAITH TO ANSWER,

  • 00:24:42.200 --> 00:24:43.200
  • TORMENTED ME,

  • THAT HAVE HAUNTED ME,
  • 00:24:46.150 --> 00:24:48.240
  • OR A THING IN MY PAST,

  • I AM NOT GOING TO THINK
  • 00:24:51.170 --> 00:24:52.280
  • FEARFULLY.
  • 00:24:52.280 --> 00:24:55.030
  • I'M NOT GOING TO SPEAK

  • I AM NOT A PRACTICAL ATHEIST.

  • I BELIEVE
  • 00:25:13.120 --> 00:25:15.060
  • THAT IF GOD IS FOR YOU,

  • VICTORY BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE

  • I'M GOING TO LIVE.
  • 00:25:33.200 --> 00:25:36.200

  • MUSIC
  • 00:28:22.040 --> 00:28:23.090
  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: TODAY
  • 00:28:23.090 --> 00:28:24.030
  • WE'RE LOOKING AT
  • 00:28:24.030 --> 00:28:25.040
  • THE POWER STRUGGLE THAT EXISTS
  • 00:28:25.040 --> 00:28:26.100
  • BETWEEN GENERATIONS,
  • 00:28:26.100 --> 00:28:28.250
  • BECAUSE NEVER BEFORE HAS
  • 00:28:28.250 --> 00:28:30.100
  • THIS HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY
  • 00:28:30.100 --> 00:28:31.210
  • OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:28:31.210 --> 00:28:32.080
  • BUT IT'S HAPPENING NOW.
  • 00:28:32.080 --> 00:28:33.080
  • THERE ARE FOUR GENERATIONS
  • 00:28:33.080 --> 00:28:35.040
  • THAT ARE SHARING THE STAGE
  • 00:28:35.040 --> 00:28:36.220
  • ALL AT ONE TIME.
  • 00:28:36.220 --> 00:28:38.230
  • NEVER BEFORE HAVE GREAT
  • 00:28:38.230 --> 00:28:40.170
  • GRANDCHILDREN HAD THE CHANCE
  • 00:28:40.170 --> 00:28:42.060
  • TO KNOW
  • 00:28:42.060 --> 00:28:42.270
  • THEIR GREAT GRANDPARENTS,
  • 00:28:42.270 --> 00:28:44.070
  • BECAUSE IN YEARS PAST,
  • 00:28:44.070 --> 00:28:46.070
  • IF YOU KNEW SOMEBODY
  • 00:28:46.070 --> 00:28:47.140
  • OVER THE AGE OF 70,
  • 00:28:47.140 --> 00:28:49.010
  • THEY WERE A PRETTY RARE BIRD.
  • 00:28:49.050 --> 00:28:52.050
  • NOW, BECAUSE OF MEDICAL SCIENCE
  • 00:28:52.050 --> 00:28:53.210
  • AND BECAUSE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:28:53.210 --> 00:28:54.160
  • THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:28:54.160 --> 00:28:55.050
  • IN OUR MODERN WORLD,
  • 00:28:55.050 --> 00:28:56.000
  • THERE ARE MORE THAN 500.000
  • 00:28:56.000 --> 00:28:58.150
  • PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF
  • 00:28:58.150 --> 00:28:59.100
  • THE EARTH OVER THE AGE OF 100.
  • 00:29:00.090 --> 00:29:03.090
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:29:03.090 --> 00:29:06.070
  • AND AS WE HAVE THESE FOUR
  • 00:29:06.070 --> 00:29:07.270
  • GENERATIONS SHARING THE STAGE
  • 00:29:07.270 --> 00:29:09.180
  • OF THE WORLD TOGETHER,
  • 00:29:09.180 --> 00:29:11.000
  • WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:29:11.000 --> 00:29:12.040
  • THAT THERE IS A POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:29:12.040 --> 00:29:13.200
  • BETWEEN THEM.
  • 00:29:13.200 --> 00:29:15.170
  • WE BELIEVE THAT THEY DO IT
  • 00:29:15.170 --> 00:29:18.100
  • WRONG.
  • 00:29:18.100 --> 00:29:19.290
  • AND IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:29:19.290 --> 00:29:20.210
  • WHICH "WE" YOU ARE.
  • 00:29:20.210 --> 00:29:23.060
  • IF YOU'RE YOUNG,
  • 00:29:23.060 --> 00:29:24.100
  • YOU BELIEVE THEY,
  • 00:29:24.100 --> 00:29:25.200
  • THE OLD PEOPLE,
  • 00:29:25.200 --> 00:29:27.060
  • DO IT WRONG.
  • 00:29:27.060 --> 00:29:29.010
  • AND IF YOU'RE OLD,
  • 00:29:29.010 --> 00:29:31.100
  • IF YOU CAN REMEMBER
  • 00:29:31.100 --> 00:29:32.050
  • THEIR NAMES --
  • 00:29:32.050 --> 00:29:33.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:29:33.130 --> 00:29:35.080
  • -- YOU THINK THEY ARE DOING IT
  • 00:29:35.080 --> 00:29:37.100
  • WRONG.
  • 00:29:37.100 --> 00:29:39.190
  • AND THE REASON THAT THIS EXISTS
  • 00:29:39.190 --> 00:29:41.000
  • IS THE SAME REASON THAT THERE'S
  • 00:29:41.000 --> 00:29:42.020
  • A POWER STRUGGLE IN MARRIAGE
  • 00:29:42.020 --> 00:29:43.080
  • AND A POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:29:43.080 --> 00:29:44.000
  • WITHIN OURSELVES,
  • 00:29:44.000 --> 00:29:45.020
  • IS BECAUSE EVERY POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:29:45.020 --> 00:29:46.220
  • IS REALLY BROUGHT DOWN
  • 00:29:46.220 --> 00:29:47.290
  • TO TWO ROOT WORDS,
  • 00:29:47.290 --> 00:29:49.150
  • "SELFISHNESS" OR "SACRIFICE."
  • 00:29:50.070 --> 00:29:53.070
  • ARE YOU GOING TO BE SELFISH
  • 00:29:53.070 --> 00:29:54.220
  • AND DEMAND IT YOUR WAY?
  • 00:29:54.220 --> 00:29:56.030
  • OR ARE YOU GOING TO BE
  • 00:29:56.030 --> 00:29:56.240
  • SACRIFICIAL
  • 00:29:56.240 --> 00:29:57.250
  • AND DO IT GOD'S WAY?
  • 00:29:57.250 --> 00:30:00.070
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO
  • 00:30:00.070 --> 00:30:01.070
  • SAY ABOUT THE POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:30:01.070 --> 00:30:02.230
  • BETWEEN GENERATIONS.
  • 00:30:02.230 --> 00:30:04.080
  • LET'S FIRST READ MALACHI 4:6.
  • 00:30:04.080 --> 00:30:07.070
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:30:07.070 --> 00:30:08.180
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:30:08.180 --> 00:30:09.260
  • "AND HE WILL TURN THE HEARTS
  • 00:30:09.260 --> 00:30:12.190
  • OF THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN
  • 00:30:12.190 --> 00:30:15.090
  • AND THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN
  • 00:30:15.090 --> 00:30:16.270
  • TO THEIR FATHERS,
  • 00:30:16.270 --> 00:30:18.180
  • LEST I COME AND STRIKE
  • 00:30:18.180 --> 00:30:20.120
  • THE EARTH WITH A CURSE."
  • 00:30:20.120 --> 00:30:23.030
  • NOW HERE WE SEE THAT GOD
  • 00:30:23.030 --> 00:30:24.140
  • IS REQUIRING THAT THERE BE
  • 00:30:24.140 --> 00:30:25.210
  • RECONCILIATION BETWEEN
  • 00:30:25.210 --> 00:30:26.290
  • GENERATIONS
  • 00:30:26.290 --> 00:30:28.110
  • OR THERE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:30:28.110 --> 00:30:29.000
  • A CURSE.
  • 00:30:29.000 --> 00:30:30.160
  • LET'S READ PSALM 133
  • 00:30:30.160 --> 00:30:32.220
  • AND SEE WHAT THE BIBLE HAS
  • 00:30:32.220 --> 00:30:33.210
  • TO SAY ABOUT UNITY.
  • 00:30:33.210 --> 00:30:36.130
  • "BEHOLD, HOW GOOD AND PLEASANT
  • 00:30:36.130 --> 00:30:38.150
  • IT IS FOR BRETHREN TO DWELL
  • 00:30:38.150 --> 00:30:40.230
  • TOGETHER IN UNITY.
  • 00:30:40.230 --> 00:30:42.200
  • IT IS LIKE THE PRECIOUS OIL
  • 00:30:42.200 --> 00:30:44.170
  • UPON THE HEAD,
  • 00:30:44.170 --> 00:30:45.160
  • RUNNING DOWN ON THE BEARD,
  • 00:30:45.160 --> 00:30:47.020
  • THE BEARD OF AARON,
  • 00:30:47.020 --> 00:30:47.290
  • RUNNING DOWN ON THE EDGE
  • 00:30:47.290 --> 00:30:49.140
  • OF HIS GARMENTS.
  • 00:30:49.140 --> 00:30:51.000
  • IT IS THE DEW OF HERMON
  • 00:30:51.000 --> 00:30:52.230
  • DESCENDING UPON THE MOUNTAINS
  • 00:30:52.230 --> 00:30:54.060
  • OF ZION;
  • 00:30:54.060 --> 00:30:55.160
  • FOR THERE, THE LORD COMMANDED
  • 00:30:55.240 --> 00:30:58.240
  • THE BLESSING."
  • 00:30:58.240 --> 00:30:59.180
  • READ THAT WITH ME AGAIN.
  • 00:30:59.180 --> 00:31:00.240
  • "FOR THERE, THE LORD
  • 00:31:00.240 --> 00:31:03.030
  • COMMANDED THE BLESSING --"
  • 00:31:03.030 --> 00:31:05.120
  • "-- LIFE FOREVER MORE."
  • 00:31:05.120 --> 00:31:07.290
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:31:07.290 --> 00:31:09.100
  • LET YOUR WORD SPEAK TRUTH
  • 00:31:09.190 --> 00:31:12.190
  • INTO OUR SPIRIT TODAY;
  • 00:31:12.190 --> 00:31:14.260
  • THAT WHEN WE LEAVE THIS PLACE,
  • 00:31:14.260 --> 00:31:16.110
  • WE WOULD BE UNITED AND THAT YOU
  • 00:31:16.110 --> 00:31:19.100
  • WOULD COMMAND THE BLESSING,
  • 00:31:19.100 --> 00:31:20.230
  • NOT ONLY UPON
  • 00:31:20.230 --> 00:31:21.130
  • THIS CONGREGATION,
  • 00:31:21.130 --> 00:31:22.120
  • BUT THOSE WHO ARE HERE;
  • 00:31:22.120 --> 00:31:24.200
  • NOT ONLY UPON THEIR LIVES,
  • 00:31:24.200 --> 00:31:26.000
  • BUT EVERYTHING THAT THEY
  • 00:31:26.000 --> 00:31:26.200
  • PUT THEIR HANDS TO,
  • 00:31:26.200 --> 00:31:28.250
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVE SACRIFICIALLY
  • 00:31:28.250 --> 00:31:30.080
  • MADE A DECISION TODAY THAT THEY
  • 00:31:30.080 --> 00:31:31.210
  • ARE GOING TO SERVE YOUR KINGDOM
  • 00:31:31.210 --> 00:31:34.020
  • AND NONE OTHER.
  • 00:31:34.020 --> 00:31:35.120
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:31:35.120 --> 00:31:37.000
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:31:37.000 --> 00:31:38.180
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:31:38.180 --> 00:31:39.160
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:31:39.160 --> 00:31:40.100
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:31:41.080 --> 00:31:44.080
  • IN ORDER TO WIN
  • 00:31:44.080 --> 00:31:45.020
  • THE POWER STRUGGLE,
  • 00:31:45.020 --> 00:31:46.000
  • NO MATTER WHAT LEVEL IT'S ON,
  • 00:31:46.000 --> 00:31:47.130
  • YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE A DECISION
  • 00:31:47.130 --> 00:31:48.200
  • TO LIVE SACRIFICIALLY
  • 00:31:48.200 --> 00:31:50.110
  • RATHER THAN SELFISHLY.
  • 00:31:50.110 --> 00:31:52.120
  • AND WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:31:52.120 --> 00:31:53.060
  • GENERATIONAL PREFERENCE,
  • 00:31:53.060 --> 00:31:54.270
  • WE HAVE SELFISHLY CHOSEN OUR
  • 00:31:54.270 --> 00:31:57.110
  • PREFERENCE OVER OUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:31:58.010 --> 00:32:01.030
  • WHENEVER YOU CONSIDER WHAT
  • 00:32:01.030 --> 00:32:02.080
  • ONE GENERATION PREFERS
  • 00:32:02.080 --> 00:32:03.270
  • OVER THE OTHER,
  • 00:32:03.270 --> 00:32:04.250
  • USUALLY IT'S PRETTY MINOR STUFF
  • 00:32:04.250 --> 00:32:07.040
  • THAT SEPARATES US.
  • 00:32:07.040 --> 00:32:09.060
  • IT'S TYPICALLY THE THINGS
  • 00:32:09.060 --> 00:32:10.040
  • THAT MAKE US FEEL GOOD.
  • 00:32:10.040 --> 00:32:11.220
  • LET'S JUST CONSIDER IT HERE
  • 00:32:11.220 --> 00:32:13.020
  • IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:32:13.020 --> 00:32:13.240
  • WHENEVER WE TALK ABOUT
  • 00:32:13.240 --> 00:32:14.220
  • GENERATIONAL PREFERENCE,
  • 00:32:14.220 --> 00:32:16.060
  • LET'S CONSIDER MUSIC.
  • 00:32:16.060 --> 00:32:19.030
  • ONE GENERATION SAYS,
  • 00:32:19.030 --> 00:32:20.050
  • "THESE KINDS OF SONGS ARE
  • 00:32:20.050 --> 00:32:22.040
  • THE GOOD KIND OF CHURCH SONGS,"
  • 00:32:22.040 --> 00:32:24.090
  • WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE
  • 00:32:24.090 --> 00:32:26.190
  • IN JESUS
  • 00:32:26.190 --> 00:32:28.220
  • IF YOU KNOW IT, GO AHEAD.
  • 00:32:28.220 --> 00:32:30.050
  • ALL OUR SINS AND GRIEFS
  • 00:32:30.110 --> 00:32:33.110
  • TO BEAR
  • 00:32:33.110 --> 00:32:34.270
  • NOW I WOULD SUGGEST THAT
  • 00:32:34.270 --> 00:32:35.250
  • EVERYBODY WHO JUMPED IN THERE
  • 00:32:35.250 --> 00:32:37.000
  • IS OVER 45 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:32:37.000 --> 00:32:39.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:32:40.100 --> 00:32:43.100
  • AND THEN THERE'S ANOTHER
  • 00:32:43.100 --> 00:32:44.010
  • GENERATION THAT THEIR MUSICAL
  • 00:32:44.050 --> 00:32:47.050
  • PREFERENCE WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:32:47.050 --> 00:32:48.060
  • TO CHURCH IS,
  • 00:32:48.060 --> 00:32:49.030
  • I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:32:49.030 --> 00:32:51.150
  • MUSIC
  • 00:32:51.150 --> 00:32:52.210
  • I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:32:52.210 --> 00:32:54.220
  • MUSIC
  • 00:32:54.220 --> 00:32:56.060
  • I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:32:56.060 --> 00:32:58.130
  • [ HE CALLS ME BLESSED ]
  • 00:32:58.210 --> 00:33:01.230
  • YEAH, YEAH, YEAH
  • 00:33:01.230 --> 00:33:04.130
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:33:06.120 --> 00:33:09.120
  • NOW REGARDLESS
  • 00:33:09.120 --> 00:33:10.050
  • OF YOUR PREFERENCE,
  • 00:33:10.050 --> 00:33:11.050
  • CAN I ASK YOU WHAT THE
  • 00:33:11.050 --> 00:33:12.070
  • DIFFERENCE IS IN THE MESSAGE
  • 00:33:12.070 --> 00:33:13.100
  • OF THOSE TWO SONGS?
  • 00:33:13.100 --> 00:33:15.280
  • ONE SAYS WE HAVE A FRIEND
  • 00:33:15.280 --> 00:33:17.060
  • IN JESUS,
  • 00:33:17.060 --> 00:33:17.210
  • THE OTHER SAYS WHAT GOD SAID OF
  • 00:33:17.210 --> 00:33:19.080
  • ABRAHAM THAT HE WAS HIS FRIEND.
  • 00:33:19.080 --> 00:33:22.070
  • YOU KNOW THE THING THAT I FIND
  • 00:33:22.070 --> 00:33:23.050
  • IN COMMON ABOUT THOSE SONGS
  • 00:33:23.050 --> 00:33:24.170
  • IS THAT NONE OF THEM
  • 00:33:24.170 --> 00:33:25.200
  • ARE ABOUT YOU;
  • 00:33:25.200 --> 00:33:28.020
  • THEY'RE ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:33:28.020 --> 00:33:29.180
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:33:29.180 --> 00:33:30.220
  • AND THAT'S OUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:33:30.220 --> 00:33:32.260
  • OUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO MAKE
  • 00:33:32.260 --> 00:33:34.110
  • CHURCH ABOUT US
  • 00:33:34.110 --> 00:33:35.240
  • AND OUR PREFERENCE.
  • 00:33:35.240 --> 00:33:36.220
  • OUR PURPOSE IS TO MAKE CHURCH
  • 00:33:36.220 --> 00:33:38.160
  • ABOUT HIM AND HIS PURPOSE.
  • 00:33:39.000 --> 00:33:42.000
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:33:42.140 --> 00:33:45.140
  • YOU SEE HERE IN THIS TREE WHERE
  • 00:33:45.140 --> 00:33:46.200
  • THERE'S THE POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:33:46.200 --> 00:33:47.210
  • OF GENERATIONS,
  • 00:33:47.210 --> 00:33:48.260
  • YOU SEE ON ONE SIDE ALL OF THE
  • 00:33:48.260 --> 00:33:50.090
  • THINGS THAT COME WITH MATURITY,
  • 00:33:50.090 --> 00:33:51.290
  • AND ALL OF THE THINGS
  • 00:33:51.290 --> 00:33:52.160
  • THAT COME WITH YOUTH.
  • 00:33:52.160 --> 00:33:53.190
  • ON THIS SIDE,
  • 00:33:53.190 --> 00:33:54.090
  • YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:33:54.090 --> 00:33:55.210
  • AND THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY
  • 00:33:55.210 --> 00:33:56.130
  • TO GET EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:33:56.130 --> 00:33:57.140
  • AND THAT'S NOT DIE.
  • 00:33:57.140 --> 00:33:59.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:33:59.290 --> 00:34:01.000
  • AND THEN OVER HERE,
  • 00:34:01.000 --> 00:34:01.150
  • YOU HAVE A WILLFULNESS
  • 00:34:01.150 --> 00:34:03.020
  • THAT SAYS, I CAN DO IT MY WAY.
  • 00:34:03.020 --> 00:34:04.200
  • TIME WILL TAKE THAT OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:34:05.150 --> 00:34:08.150
  • YOU SEE TECHNOLOGY,
  • 00:34:08.150 --> 00:34:09.150
  • LIKE GOOGLE, WHEW!
  • 00:34:09.150 --> 00:34:12.050
  • DON'T GET ME STARTED THERE.
  • 00:34:12.050 --> 00:34:13.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:34:13.240 --> 00:34:14.200
  • LOST ART FORMS
  • 00:34:14.200 --> 00:34:15.150
  • LIKE CONVERSATION --
  • 00:34:15.150 --> 00:34:17.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:34:17.240 --> 00:34:19.020
  • -- THINGS THAT USED TO BE
  • 00:34:19.020 --> 00:34:20.120
  • VALUABLE LIKE LIBRARIES,
  • 00:34:21.170 --> 00:34:24.170
  • ATTITUDES,
  • 00:34:24.170 --> 00:34:26.150
  • ALL OF THEM ARE DIFFERENT.
  • 00:34:26.150 --> 00:34:27.200
  • WHY?
  • 00:34:27.200 --> 00:34:28.110
  • BECAUSE TIME HAS A WAY
  • 00:34:28.110 --> 00:34:30.140
  • OF CHANGING THINGS.
  • 00:34:30.150 --> 00:34:33.150
  • BUT FROM ONE GENERATION
  • 00:34:33.150 --> 00:34:34.110
  • TO THE OTHER,
  • 00:34:34.110 --> 00:34:34.270
  • THE PRINCIPLES ARE THE SAME.
  • 00:34:34.270 --> 00:34:35.280
  • ECCLESIASTES SAYS IT THIS WAY;
  • 00:34:35.280 --> 00:34:37.190
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:34:37.190 --> 00:34:38.060
  • "ONE GENERATION PASSES AWAY
  • 00:34:38.060 --> 00:34:39.150
  • AND ANOTHER RISES UP
  • 00:34:39.150 --> 00:34:40.170
  • TO REPLACE IT."
  • 00:34:40.170 --> 00:34:42.230
  • WHILE YOU'RE HERE,
  • 00:34:42.230 --> 00:34:43.270
  • RECOGNIZE WHAT ROLE YOU PLAY
  • 00:34:43.270 --> 00:34:46.100
  • AND BE WILLING TO PLAY IT
  • 00:34:46.100 --> 00:34:48.090
  • IN A SACRIFICIAL MANNER.
  • 00:34:48.090 --> 00:34:50.070
  • DO IT THE WAY GOD WANTS YOU
  • 00:34:50.070 --> 00:34:52.020
  • TO DO IT.
  • 00:34:52.020 --> 00:34:53.250
  • THIS IS NOT SOMETHING I'M JUST
  • 00:34:53.250 --> 00:34:54.270
  • OFFERING AS A FREE ADVICE.
  • 00:34:54.270 --> 00:34:56.050
  • THIS IS SOMETHING I'VE HAD
  • 00:34:56.050 --> 00:34:57.020
  • TO LEARN HOW TO DO IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:34:57.020 --> 00:34:59.270
  • YOU SEE I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF
  • 00:34:59.270 --> 00:35:01.060
  • SITTING IN THE MENTORSHIP AND
  • 00:35:01.060 --> 00:35:02.210
  • DISCIPLESHIP OF PASTOR HAGEE.
  • 00:35:02.210 --> 00:35:05.090
  • THAT'S A PRETTY RARE CHAIR,
  • 00:35:05.090 --> 00:35:06.220
  • BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY GETS
  • 00:35:06.220 --> 00:35:07.190
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:35:07.190 --> 00:35:09.110
  • BUT EVEN THEN,
  • 00:35:09.110 --> 00:35:10.070
  • I HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS
  • 00:35:10.070 --> 00:35:12.030
  • TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION
  • 00:35:12.030 --> 00:35:13.220
  • THROUGH SUBMISSION,
  • 00:35:13.220 --> 00:35:14.190
  • TO DO WHAT HE ASKS,
  • 00:35:14.190 --> 00:35:16.020
  • WHEN HE ASKS,
  • 00:35:16.020 --> 00:35:17.010
  • LIKE HE ASKS,
  • 00:35:17.010 --> 00:35:17.270
  • BECAUSE THAT'S MY JOB;
  • 00:35:17.270 --> 00:35:20.090
  • NOT SIT THERE AND DISAGREE
  • 00:35:20.090 --> 00:35:21.220
  • WITH MY DAD.
  • 00:35:21.220 --> 00:35:24.040
  • NOW OFTEN,
  • 00:35:24.040 --> 00:35:24.250
  • IF YOU'VE HEARD ME
  • 00:35:24.250 --> 00:35:25.150
  • IN CONVERSATION,
  • 00:35:25.150 --> 00:35:26.080
  • YOU'LL HEAR ME CALL HIM
  • 00:35:26.080 --> 00:35:27.100
  • BOTH "PASTOR" AND "FATHER."
  • 00:35:27.100 --> 00:35:29.290
  • WHY?
  • 00:35:29.290 --> 00:35:30.130
  • BECAUSE IN MY MIND,
  • 00:35:30.130 --> 00:35:31.110
  • IT MIGHT BE COMPLICATED
  • 00:35:31.110 --> 00:35:32.100
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:35:32.100 --> 00:35:32.240
  • BUT IT'S EASY FOR ME;
  • 00:35:32.240 --> 00:35:33.220
  • I SEE HIM IN BOTH OFFICES.
  • 00:35:34.040 --> 00:35:37.040
  • NOW LET ME TELL YOU;
  • 00:35:37.040 --> 00:35:37.260
  • I HAVE OFTEN DISAGREED
  • 00:35:37.260 --> 00:35:39.160
  • WITH DAD,
  • 00:35:39.160 --> 00:35:41.230
  • BUT I'VE NEVER DISAGREED
  • 00:35:41.230 --> 00:35:42.230
  • WITH MY PASTOR,
  • 00:35:42.230 --> 00:35:45.180
  • BECAUSE HE IS A SPIRITUAL
  • 00:35:45.180 --> 00:35:46.290
  • AUTHORITY OVER ME.
  • 00:35:46.290 --> 00:35:48.010
  • AND WHAT I RECOGNIZE IS THAT
  • 00:35:48.010 --> 00:35:49.080
  • IF I GET OUT FROM UNDER COVER,
  • 00:35:49.080 --> 00:35:50.210
  • I'M ON MY OWN.
  • 00:35:50.210 --> 00:35:53.000

  • FORTY-FIVE MINUTES,
  • 00:40:51.070 --> 00:40:54.070
  • HE GOT DONE.
  • 00:40:54.070 --> 00:40:56.280
  • AND 36 OF THOSE 38 PAGES
  • 00:40:56.280 --> 00:40:59.110
  • WERE ALL OVER THE FLOOR.
  • 00:40:59.110 --> 00:41:01.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:41:01.090 --> 00:41:02.280
  • AND TWO OF THOSE PAGES WERE
  • 00:41:02.280 --> 00:41:04.030
  • ACTUALLY SITTING ON THE TABLE
  • 00:41:04.030 --> 00:41:05.070
  • NEXT TO HIM.
  • 00:41:05.070 --> 00:41:06.040
  • AND ON THOSE TWO PAGES,
  • 00:41:06.040 --> 00:41:07.260
  • FOUR LINES,
  • 00:41:07.280 --> 00:41:10.280
  • FOUR LINES WERE CIRCLED.
  • 00:41:11.060 --> 00:41:14.060
  • AND THE REST WERE SCRATCHED
  • 00:41:14.060 --> 00:41:15.150
  • OUT, ERASED,
  • 00:41:15.150 --> 00:41:17.240
  • BLOTTED TRANSGRESSIONS BURIED
  • 00:41:17.240 --> 00:41:19.210
  • IN THE SEA OF FORGETFULNESS.
  • 00:41:19.210 --> 00:41:21.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:41:21.130 --> 00:41:23.110
  • AND HE TOOK THOSE TWO PAGES
  • 00:41:23.110 --> 00:41:24.100
  • IN HIS HAND,
  • 00:41:24.100 --> 00:41:24.270

  • IN MY EYES,
  • 00:41:26.170 --> 00:41:27.040
  • AND HE SENT ME TO SEMINARY
  • 00:41:27.040 --> 00:41:28.260
  • IN A SENTENCE.
  • 00:41:29.010 --> 00:41:32.010
  • HE SAID, "SON,
  • 00:41:32.010 --> 00:41:32.190
  • WHAT'S ON THEE TWO PAGES
  • 00:41:32.190 --> 00:41:34.000
  • AND WHAT'S CIRCLED HERE
  • 00:41:34.000 --> 00:41:35.040
  • CAME OUT OF GOD'S WORD."
  • 00:41:35.110 --> 00:41:38.110
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:41:38.110 --> 00:41:38.280
  • "EVERYTHING THAT'S ALL OVER

  • IT CAME OUT OF YOU."
  • 00:41:40.120 --> 00:41:43.100
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:41:43.100 --> 00:41:43.240
  • "IF YOU'LL TAKE THE TIME TO DIG
  • 00:41:43.240 --> 00:41:44.290
  • INTO GOD'S WORD AND TELL OTHERS
  • 00:41:44.290 --> 00:41:46.250
  • WHAT HE SAYS,
  • 00:41:46.250 --> 00:41:49.080
  • THEY'LL COME FROM ALL OVER
  • 00:41:49.080 --> 00:41:50.030
  • THE WORLD TO HEAR YOU."
  • 00:41:50.030 --> 00:41:52.190
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:41:52.190 --> 00:41:53.030
  • "BUT IF ALL YOU DO
  • 00:41:53.030 --> 00:41:53.210
  • IS TELL THEM WHAT YOU SAY,"
  • 00:41:53.210 --> 00:41:56.000
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:41:56.000 --> 00:41:56.130
  • "THEY WON'T CROSS THE STREET
  • 00:41:56.130 --> 00:41:57.110
  • TO LISTEN."
  • 00:41:58.000 --> 00:42:01.020
  • NOW ALL OF Y'ALL ARE REAL
  • 00:42:01.020 --> 00:42:02.260
  • SPIRITUAL AND STUFF,
  • 00:42:02.260 --> 00:42:03.210
  • SAYING, "AMEN."
  • 00:42:03.210 --> 00:42:04.130
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I SAID?
  • 00:42:04.130 --> 00:42:06.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:08.270 --> 00:42:11.270
  • I WASN'T NEARLY AS BLESSED
  • 00:42:11.270 --> 00:42:13.010
  • AS Y'ALL JUST GOT.
  • 00:42:13.010 --> 00:42:15.040
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:15.040 --> 00:42:16.120
  • THAT WAS WEEKS OF WORK
  • 00:42:16.120 --> 00:42:17.120
  • HE JUST BLED ALL OVER.
  • 00:42:17.120 --> 00:42:19.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:19.060 --> 00:42:20.000
  • I PICKED UP MY 36 ORPHANED
  • 00:42:20.000 --> 00:42:21.260
  • PAGES,
  • 00:42:21.260 --> 00:42:22.130
  • AND GRABBED THE TWO THAT
  • 00:42:22.130 --> 00:42:23.100
  • HE SAID I COULD KEEP
  • 00:42:23.100 --> 00:42:24.100
  • WITH ONLY FOUR LINES ON IT;
  • 00:42:24.100 --> 00:42:25.190
  • AND I WALKED BACK DOWN
  • 00:42:25.190 --> 00:42:26.140
  • THE HALL TO THE OFFICE
  • 00:42:26.140 --> 00:42:27.090
  • WHERE I WENT.
  • 00:42:27.090 --> 00:42:27.250
  • AND RIGHT HERE IS WHERE
  • 00:42:27.250 --> 00:42:28.240
  • THE HAGEE FAMILY STILL DEBATES
  • 00:42:28.240 --> 00:42:30.030
  • TO THIS DAY,
  • 00:42:30.030 --> 00:42:30.190
  • BECAUSE HE SAYS I SLAMMED
  • 00:42:30.190 --> 00:42:32.050
  • THE DOOR.
  • 00:42:32.050 --> 00:42:32.220
  • I DID NOT SLAM THE DOOR.
  • 00:42:32.220 --> 00:42:35.040
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:42:35.090 --> 00:42:38.090
  • I CLOSED IT RATHER FIRMLY,
  • 00:42:38.090 --> 00:42:40.010
  • BUT I DIDN'T SLAM IT.
  • 00:42:40.010 --> 00:42:41.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:41.230 --> 00:42:42.260
  • THE FACT THAT THERE'S NOT
  • 00:42:42.260 --> 00:42:43.190
  • A PICTURE IN THE CHAPEL OF ME
  • 00:42:43.190 --> 00:42:45.110
  • IN MEMORIAL IS PROOF
  • 00:42:45.110 --> 00:42:47.000
  • THAT I DIDN'T SLAM THE DOOR.
  • 00:42:47.000 --> 00:42:49.010
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:49.010 --> 00:42:51.140
  • AND I SAT THERE AT THAT DESK
  • 00:42:51.140 --> 00:42:52.240
  • WHERE I HAD SAT FOR WEEKS,
  • 00:42:52.240 --> 00:42:54.050
  • AND I WASN'T ABOUT TO GIVE IN
  • 00:42:54.050 --> 00:42:56.080
  • THAT EASY.
  • 00:42:56.080 --> 00:42:56.280
  • I WAS GETTING READY TO GO DOWN
  • 00:42:56.280 --> 00:42:58.160
  • THE HALL AND TELL ME DAD
  • 00:42:58.160 --> 00:43:00.080
  • WHY DAD WAS WRONG.
  • 00:43:00.080 --> 00:43:02.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:02.280 --> 00:43:03.260
  • AND I STARTED TO THINK ABOUT
  • 00:43:03.260 --> 00:43:04.230
  • HOW MY CREATIVE JUICES
  • 00:43:04.230 --> 00:43:06.140
  • HAD BEEN SUPPRESSED,
  • 00:43:06.140 --> 00:43:07.140
  • HOW MY TALENTS HAD BEEN
  • 00:43:07.140 --> 00:43:08.180
  • OVERLOOKED,
  • 00:43:08.180 --> 00:43:09.090
  • HOW MY GENIUS WAS BEING
  • 00:43:09.090 --> 00:43:10.220
  • TAKEN FOR GRANTED.
  • 00:43:10.220 --> 00:43:13.060
  • AND WHILE YOU LOOK AND THINK,
  • 00:43:13.060 --> 00:43:14.010
  • YOU FOOLISH BOY,
  • 00:43:14.010 --> 00:43:14.290
  • HOW MANY OF YOU,
  • 00:43:14.290 --> 00:43:15.280
  • IN YOUR MOMENT OF OFFENSE,
  • 00:43:15.280 --> 00:43:17.000
  • HAVE THOUGHT EVEN WORSE
  • 00:43:17.000 --> 00:43:18.000
  • THINGS?
  • 00:43:18.000 --> 00:43:19.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:19.240 --> 00:43:20.120
  • AND JUST BEFORE I HAD THE
  • 00:43:20.120 --> 00:43:21.180
  • COURAGE TO WALK DOWN THE HALL
  • 00:43:21.180 --> 00:43:22.270
  • AND TIE IT ON FOR ROUND TWO,
  • 00:43:23.060 --> 00:43:26.060
  • I HEARD THAT STILL,
  • 00:43:26.060 --> 00:43:27.010
  • SMALL VOICE.
  • 00:43:27.010 --> 00:43:27.230
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:43:27.230 --> 00:43:28.190
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WHEN I SAY,
  • 00:43:28.190 --> 00:43:29.240
  • "THAT STILL, SMALL VOICE"?
  • 00:43:29.240 --> 00:43:32.120
  • IT'S THOSE WORDS
  • 00:43:32.120 --> 00:43:33.090
  • THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WHISPERS
  • 00:43:33.090 --> 00:43:34.230
  • INTO YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:43:34.230 --> 00:43:35.180
  • AND SOMETIMES THEY SOUND LIKE
  • 00:43:35.180 --> 00:43:36.220
  • YOUR MOM,
  • 00:43:36.220 --> 00:43:37.090
  • AND THAT'S A LITTLE SPOOKY.
  • 00:43:37.090 --> 00:43:39.010
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:39.010 --> 00:43:41.040
  • AND JUST AS I REACHED FOR THE
  • 00:43:41.040 --> 00:43:42.020
  • DOOR AND I WAS GETTING READY
  • 00:43:42.020 --> 00:43:43.010
  • TO TURN THE KNOB,
  • 00:43:43.010 --> 00:43:43.240
  • I HEARD THAT STILL,
  • 00:43:43.240 --> 00:43:44.160
  • SMALL VOICE ASK ME
  • 00:43:44.160 --> 00:43:45.170
  • THIS QUESTION;
  • 00:43:45.170 --> 00:43:46.120
  • IS THERE WHERE IT ENDS?
  • 00:43:48.220 --> 00:43:51.220
  • AND I STOPPED AND I THOUGHT,
  • 00:43:51.220 --> 00:43:53.060
  • WHAT ENDS?
  • 00:43:53.060 --> 00:43:55.250
  • I AIN'T EVEN PREACHED
  • 00:43:55.250 --> 00:43:56.170
  • THE FIRST MESSAGE.
  • 00:43:56.170 --> 00:43:57.130
  • HOW CAN IT BE OVER WITH
  • 00:43:57.130 --> 00:43:58.150
  • BEFORE IT GETS STARTED?
  • 00:43:58.150 --> 00:44:00.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:00.050 --> 00:44:02.140
  • AND THE SMARTEST THING
  • 00:44:02.140 --> 00:44:03.110
  • THAT I DID THAT DAY,
  • 00:44:03.110 --> 00:44:04.210
  • AND IT'S SOMETHING
  • 00:44:04.210 --> 00:44:05.080
  • I LEARNED THEN
  • 00:44:05.080 --> 00:44:06.040
  • AND STILL PRACTICE NOW,
  • 00:44:06.040 --> 00:44:07.120
  • IS I SAT DOWN.
  • 00:44:08.100 --> 00:44:11.100
  • YOU SEE I HEARD THE VOICE
  • 00:44:11.100 --> 00:44:12.210
  • OF THE LORD ASK ME A QUESTION,
  • 00:44:12.210 --> 00:44:14.060
  • AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:44:14.060 --> 00:44:15.090
  • WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:44:15.090 --> 00:44:16.060
  • AND SO I SAT DOWN
  • 00:44:16.060 --> 00:44:17.270
  • AND WAS QUIET.
  • 00:44:17.270 --> 00:44:19.290
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:44:19.290 --> 00:44:20.170
  • WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE HEARING
  • 00:44:20.170 --> 00:44:21.220
  • GOD,
  • 00:44:21.220 --> 00:44:22.080
  • BUT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:44:22.080 --> 00:44:23.110
  • EXACTLY WHAT HE'S SAYING,
  • 00:44:23.110 --> 00:44:24.040
  • JUST SIT STILL
  • 00:44:24.040 --> 00:44:25.050
  • UNTIL HE EXPLAINS IT TO YOU.
  • 00:44:25.050 --> 00:44:27.170
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:44:31.200 --> 00:44:34.200
  • AND SO I SAT THERE
  • 00:44:34.200 --> 00:44:35.140
  • AND I LISTENED.
  • 00:44:35.140 --> 00:44:37.200
  • AND RATHER THAN HEAR MORE
  • 00:44:37.200 --> 00:44:38.220
  • WORDS, I SAW.
  • 00:44:38.220 --> 00:44:41.160
  • I SAW THINGS FROM MY CHILDHOOD,
  • 00:44:41.160 --> 00:44:43.110
  • FROM YEARS OF HAVING
  • 00:44:43.110 --> 00:44:45.040
  • THE PRIVILEGE OF TRAVELING
  • 00:44:45.040 --> 00:44:46.100
  • WITH MY FATHER
  • 00:44:46.100 --> 00:44:47.180
  • FROM PLACE TO PLACE,
  • 00:44:47.180 --> 00:44:48.150
  • AS HE WOULD SPEAK
  • 00:44:48.150 --> 00:44:49.100
  • AND HE WOULD MINISTER.
  • 00:44:49.100 --> 00:44:50.080
  • AND SEEING THE FACES OF OTHER
  • 00:44:50.080 --> 00:44:51.250
  • PASTORS IN OTHER CHURCHES,
  • 00:44:51.250 --> 00:44:53.160
  • MEN THAT YOU WOULD KNOW,
  • 00:44:53.160 --> 00:44:55.280
  • MEN WHO ARE LEADING
  • 00:44:55.280 --> 00:44:56.200
  • SOME OF THE GREATEST CHURCHES
  • 00:44:56.200 --> 00:44:57.210
  • IN AMERICA TODAY;
  • 00:44:57.210 --> 00:44:59.210
  • THEY WOULD COME TO ME
  • 00:44:59.210 --> 00:45:00.190
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:45:00.190 --> 00:45:01.150
  • "MATTHEW, IF I COULD JUST
  • 00:45:01.150 --> 00:45:02.220
  • SPEND AN HOUR WITH YOUR DAD,"
  • 00:45:02.230 --> 00:45:05.230
  • "IF I COULD JUST TALK TO HIM
  • 00:45:05.230 --> 00:45:06.290
  • ABOUT MY CHURCH,"
  • 00:45:06.290 --> 00:45:07.230
  • "IF I COULD JUST ASK HIM
  • 00:45:07.230 --> 00:45:08.270
  • QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HE WOULD
  • 00:45:08.270 --> 00:45:10.070
  • DO IF HE WERE IN MY SITUATION."
  • 00:45:12.000 --> 00:45:15.000
  • AND SUDDENLY I RECOGNIZED
  • 00:45:15.000 --> 00:45:16.210
  • THAT I HAD,
  • 00:45:16.210 --> 00:45:17.280
  • AT MY FINGERTIPS,
  • 00:45:17.280 --> 00:45:19.110
  • THE PRIVILEGE THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:45:19.110 --> 00:45:20.260
  • ASKING FOR.
  • 00:45:20.260 --> 00:45:23.070
  • GOD AND HIS PROVIDENCE PUT ME
  • 00:45:23.070 --> 00:45:24.270
  • UNDERNEATH THE ROOF OF THE MAN
  • 00:45:24.270 --> 00:45:27.000
  • THAT I COULD LEARN FROM.
  • 00:45:27.000 --> 00:45:28.120
  • NOW ALL I HAD TO DO WAS BE
  • 00:45:28.120 --> 00:45:30.020
  • SUBMITTED ENOUGH TO LEARN.
  • 00:45:30.080 --> 00:45:33.080
  • HE ALREADY KNEW HOW TO DO
  • 00:45:33.080 --> 00:45:34.200
  • WHAT I WANTED.
  • 00:45:34.200 --> 00:45:37.040
  • NOW I JUST HAD TO BE
  • 00:45:37.040 --> 00:45:38.220
  • SUBMISSIVE
  • 00:45:38.220 --> 00:45:39.100
  • SO THAT I COULD ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:45:39.100 --> 00:45:40.080
  • THE MISSION.
  • 00:45:40.150 --> 00:45:43.150
  • SO I TOOK ALL OF THOSE INKED-UP
  • 00:45:43.150 --> 00:45:45.160
  • PAGES AND I THREW THEM
  • 00:45:45.160 --> 00:45:48.090
  • IN THE TRASH.
  • 00:45:48.120 --> 00:45:51.120
  • I TOOK AN EMPTY,
  • 00:45:51.120 --> 00:45:52.210
  • BLANK NOTEBOOK PAD
  • 00:45:52.210 --> 00:45:55.160
  • AND A BLUE PEN,
  • 00:45:55.160 --> 00:45:56.110
  • BECAUSE I WAS TIRED OF RED.
  • 00:45:56.110 --> 00:45:58.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:58.080 --> 00:46:01.020
  • AND I WENT BACK INTO
  • 00:46:01.020 --> 00:46:01.190
  • MY DAD'S ROOM, AND I SAID,
  • 00:46:01.190 --> 00:46:02.200
  • "DAD, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:46:03.070 --> 00:46:06.070
  • BUT IF YOU SHOW ME,
  • 00:46:06.070 --> 00:46:08.180
  • I'LL DO IT."
  • 00:46:08.180 --> 00:46:10.290
  • AND IT'S BEEN THAT WAY
  • 00:46:10.290 --> 00:46:11.250
  • FROM THAT DAY UNTIL THIS ONE.
  • 00:46:12.000 --> 00:46:15.000
  • NOW WHAT THAT HAS HELPED US
  • 00:46:15.000 --> 00:46:16.090
  • TO ACCOMPLISH IS WHAT I CALL
  • 00:46:16.090 --> 00:46:17.160
  • "GENERATIONAL LEVERAGE."
  • 00:46:17.160 --> 00:46:19.290
  • YOU SEE IF I NEEDED A LOAN
  • 00:46:19.290 --> 00:46:22.000
  • FROM A BANK,
  • 00:46:22.000 --> 00:46:22.160
  • I WOULD GO TO A BANK
  • 00:46:22.160 --> 00:46:23.110
  • WITH A CHECK.
  • 00:46:23.110 --> 00:46:24.080
  • AND I WOULD SAY TO THE BANK,
  • 00:46:24.080 --> 00:46:25.080
  • "HERE'S MY MONEY.
  • 00:46:25.080 --> 00:46:26.080
  • NOW I WOULD LIKE TO LEVERAGE
  • 00:46:26.080 --> 00:46:27.230
  • MY MONEY INTO YOUR MONEY."
  • 00:46:27.230 --> 00:46:29.160
  • AND THEY WOULD GIVE ME MORE
  • 00:46:29.160 --> 00:46:30.260
  • MONEY, BECAUSE THEY HAVE IT
  • 00:46:30.260 --> 00:46:32.110
  • AND I DON'T.
  • 00:46:32.110 --> 00:46:33.040
  • SO I HAVE CREATED LEVERAGE
  • 00:46:33.040 --> 00:46:34.210
  • WITH A LITTLE BIT OF MINE
  • 00:46:34.210 --> 00:46:35.220
  • AND A WHOLE LOT OF THEIRS.
  • 00:46:35.220 --> 00:46:38.060
  • WELL HERE'S HOW GENERATIONAL
  • 00:46:38.060 --> 00:46:39.100
  • LEVERAGE WORKS.
  • 00:46:39.100 --> 00:46:40.110
  • HOW MANY OF YOU'VE EVER HEARD
  • 00:46:40.110 --> 00:46:41.220
  • SOMEBODY WITH WISDOM
  • 00:46:41.220 --> 00:46:42.230
  • AND EXPERIENCE SAY THESE KINDS
  • 00:46:42.230 --> 00:46:44.210
  • OF THINGS;
  • 00:46:44.210 --> 00:46:45.120
  • "IF I ONLY KNEW THEN
  • 00:46:45.120 --> 00:46:47.160
  • WHAT I KNOW NOW"?
  • 00:46:48.270 --> 00:46:51.270
  • WELL THE WAY THAT GENERATIONAL
  • 00:46:51.270 --> 00:46:52.270
  • LEVERAGE WORKS IS PASTOR
  • 00:46:52.270 --> 00:46:54.180
  • AND I HAD A CONVERSATION
  • 00:46:54.180 --> 00:46:55.240
  • WHEN I GOT OUT OF COLLEGE.
  • 00:46:55.240 --> 00:46:56.220
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:46:56.220 --> 00:46:57.040
  • "SON, IF I ONLY KNEW THEN
  • 00:46:57.040 --> 00:46:59.060
  • WHAT I KNOW NOW
  • 00:46:59.060 --> 00:47:00.140
  • AND HAD THE ENERGY
  • 00:47:00.140 --> 00:47:02.010
  • OF MY 20'S."
  • 00:47:02.010 --> 00:47:04.150
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:47:04.150 --> 00:47:05.000
  • "DAD, I'M IN MY 20'S,
  • 00:47:05.230 --> 00:47:08.230
  • AND I GOT ALL KINDS OF ENERGY,
  • 00:47:08.230 --> 00:47:11.070
  • BUT I AM ALL KINDS
  • 00:47:11.070 --> 00:47:12.100
  • OF IGNORANT."
  • 00:47:12.100 --> 00:47:14.290
  • IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:47:14.290 --> 00:47:15.120
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:47:15.120 --> 00:47:16.230
  • "IGNORANCE" IS NOT A BAD WORD.
  • 00:47:16.230 --> 00:47:18.040
  • "IGNORANCE" MEANS
  • 00:47:18.040 --> 00:47:18.230
  • YOU'RE JUST CLUELESS
  • 00:47:18.230 --> 00:47:20.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:47:20.190 --> 00:47:21.210
  • A WORD TO THE WISE,
  • 00:47:21.210 --> 00:47:22.180
  • MOST 21 YEAR OLDS
  • 00:47:22.180 --> 00:47:23.260
  • ARE CLUELESS.
  • 00:47:23.260 --> 00:47:25.280
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:47:25.280 --> 00:47:27.200
  • I SAID, "DAD,"
  • 00:47:27.200 --> 00:47:28.080
  • I SAID, "IF YOU WILL LOAN ME
  • 00:47:28.080 --> 00:47:30.250
  • YOUR WISDOM,
  • 00:47:30.250 --> 00:47:33.010
  • I WILL LEVERAGE IT
  • 00:47:33.010 --> 00:47:34.020
  • WITH MY ENERGY.
  • 00:47:34.020 --> 00:47:36.020
  • IF YOU'LL TELL ME WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:47:36.020 --> 00:47:38.110
  • I'LL DO IT.
  • 00:47:38.110 --> 00:47:40.110
  • I WON'T ARGUE;
  • 00:47:40.110 --> 00:47:41.110
  • I'LL JUST DO IT."
  • 00:47:41.110 --> 00:47:43.280
  • AND WHAT I WAS ABLE TO DO
  • 00:47:43.280 --> 00:47:45.020
  • WAS TAKE, AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:47:45.020 --> 00:47:46.180
  • FOUR DECADES OF EXPERIENCE AND
  • 00:47:46.180 --> 00:47:48.220
  • LEVERAGE IT INTO MY ENERGY.
  • 00:47:49.170 --> 00:47:52.170
  • AND THAT'S HOW WE'VE
  • 00:47:52.170 --> 00:47:53.090
  • ACCOMPLISHED WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:47:53.090 --> 00:47:54.110
  • ACCOMPLISHED IN THIS MINISTRY
  • 00:47:54.110 --> 00:47:56.000
  • IN THE LAST 20 YEARS.
  • 00:47:56.000 --> 00:47:58.250
  • THAT'S WHY WE CAN DO
  • 00:47:58.250 --> 00:47:59.290
  • THE THINGS THAT WE DO.
  • 00:47:59.290 --> 00:48:01.050
  • I AM SO THANKFUL
  • 00:48:01.050 --> 00:48:02.140
  • THAT AT CORNERSTONE,
  • 00:48:02.140 --> 00:48:03.080
  • WE PRIORITIZE THE NEXT
  • 00:48:03.080 --> 00:48:05.050
  • GENERATION.
  • 00:48:05.050 --> 00:48:06.240
  • LET ME SHOW YOU
  • 00:48:06.240 --> 00:48:07.120
  • WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:48:07.120 --> 00:48:08.030
  • THESE ARE JUST A FEW
  • 00:48:08.030 --> 00:48:09.060
  • OF THE PICTURES THAT TELL YOU
  • 00:48:09.060 --> 00:48:10.160
  • HOW SERIOUS WE ARE ABOUT
  • 00:48:10.160 --> 00:48:12.030
  • REACHING YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:48:12.030 --> 00:48:14.290
  • THIS FIRST PICTURE
  • 00:48:14.290 --> 00:48:15.220
  • IS OUR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL.
  • 00:48:15.270 --> 00:48:18.270
  • IT'S WHAT 2.000 KIDS
  • 00:48:18.270 --> 00:48:20.090
  • LOOK LIKE IN THE SANCTUARY.
  • 00:48:20.110 --> 00:48:23.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING?
  • 00:48:23.110 --> 00:48:25.030
  • THEY'RE WORSHIPING JESUS.
  • 00:48:25.030 --> 00:48:27.210
  • THEY'RE CELEBRATING
  • 00:48:27.210 --> 00:48:28.090
  • THEIR SALVATION.
  • 00:48:28.090 --> 00:48:30.080
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:48:32.260 --> 00:48:35.260
  • TAKE A LOOK
  • 00:48:35.260 --> 00:48:36.110
  • AT THIS NEXT PICTURE.
  • 00:48:36.110 --> 00:48:37.010
  • VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL IS ONE
  • 00:48:37.010 --> 00:48:38.090
  • OF MY FAVORITE WEEKS
  • 00:48:38.090 --> 00:48:39.130
  • OF THE YEAR.
  • 00:48:39.130 --> 00:48:40.240
  • I GOT MY START IN CHILDREN'S
  • 00:48:40.240 --> 00:48:42.070
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:48:42.070 --> 00:48:44.010
  • PASTOR WANTED ME TO LEARN HOW
  • 00:48:44.010 --> 00:48:45.130
  • TO WORK WITH PUPPETS
  • 00:48:45.130 --> 00:48:46.110
  • BEFORE PEOPLE, SO --
  • 00:48:46.110 --> 00:48:48.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:48:48.030 --> 00:48:50.260
  • THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE EVENTS
  • 00:48:50.260 --> 00:48:52.010
  • THAT OUR CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT
  • 00:48:52.010 --> 00:48:53.020
  • DOES ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.
  • 00:48:53.020 --> 00:48:54.240
  • BUT IT'S CERTAINLY SOMETHING
  • 00:48:54.240 --> 00:48:55.280
  • THAT WE DO EACH
  • 00:48:55.280 --> 00:48:57.110
  • AND EVERY WEEK.
  • 00:48:57.110 --> 00:48:58.090
  • TAKE A LOOK AT OUR ARK.
  • 00:48:58.090 --> 00:48:59.290
  • THIS IS OUR NURSERY FACILITY.
  • 00:49:00.030 --> 00:49:03.030
  • THIS IS WHERE KIDS COME
  • 00:49:03.030 --> 00:49:03.270
  • AND GATHER,
  • 00:49:03.270 --> 00:49:04.240
  • NOT ONLY DURING SUNDAY
  • 00:49:04.240 --> 00:49:05.200
  • SERVICES,
  • 00:49:05.200 --> 00:49:06.070
  • BUT THROUGHOUT THE WEEK WITH
  • 00:49:06.070 --> 00:49:07.120
  • DAY CARE AND MOTHER'S DAY OUT.
  • 00:49:07.120 --> 00:49:08.230
  • THE ARK IS FILLED WITH LIFE.
  • 00:49:09.040 --> 00:49:12.040
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE GOING
  • 00:49:12.040 --> 00:49:12.250
  • TO A SUNDAY SCHOOL THAT HAD
  • 00:49:12.250 --> 00:49:14.060
  • LIFE-SIZED ELEPHANTS,
  • 00:49:14.060 --> 00:49:15.160
  • AND GIRAFFES, AND LIONS,
  • 00:49:15.160 --> 00:49:16.250
  • AND TIGERS AND BEARS, OH MY?
  • 00:49:16.250 --> 00:49:19.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:49:19.090 --> 00:49:20.240
  • THE ONLY REASON THAT THAT
  • 00:49:20.240 --> 00:49:21.190
  • HAPPENS IS BECAUSE THIS CHURCH
  • 00:49:21.190 --> 00:49:23.090
  • PUTS A PREMIUM
  • 00:49:23.090 --> 00:49:24.210
  • ON THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 00:49:24.210 --> 00:49:27.080
  • WE WANT THEM TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:49:27.080 --> 00:49:28.140
  • THE JOY OF THE LORD.
  • 00:49:28.140 --> 00:49:30.160
  • THIS IS WHAT THEIR SERVICES
  • 00:49:30.160 --> 00:49:31.170
  • LOOK LIKE ON SUNDAY MORNING.
  • 00:49:31.170 --> 00:49:32.270
  • THERE'S ABOUT 150 OF THEM
  • 00:49:32.270 --> 00:49:34.080
  • IN THERE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:49:34.080 --> 00:49:35.280
  • YOU WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:49:35.280 --> 00:49:36.160
  • WHERE THERE'S A LOT OF ENERGY
  • 00:49:36.160 --> 00:49:37.210
  • AND THE NEED FOR A LOT
  • 00:49:37.210 --> 00:49:38.160
  • OF VOLUNTEERS?
  • 00:49:38.160 --> 00:49:39.140
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:49:39.160 --> 00:49:42.160
  • PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, "PASTOR,
  • 00:49:42.160 --> 00:49:43.210
  • I WANT TO WORK IN THE CHURCH."
  • 00:49:43.210 --> 00:49:44.190
  • "WE NEED YOU IN THE NURSERY."
  • 00:49:44.190 --> 00:49:45.200
  • "OH NO, I'M GOOD."
  • 00:49:45.200 --> 00:49:47.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:49:49.180 --> 00:49:52.180
  • NOT ONLY DO WE DO THIS
  • 00:49:52.180 --> 00:49:53.280
  • ON SUNDAY,
  • 00:49:53.280 --> 00:49:54.150
  • BUT MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY,
  • 00:49:54.150 --> 00:49:55.120
  • WE HAVE A BLESSING CALLED
  • 00:49:55.120 --> 00:49:56.290
  • CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS.
  • 00:49:56.290 --> 00:49:58.220
  • THIS IS JUST ONE KINDERGARTEN
  • 00:49:58.220 --> 00:49:59.290
  • CLASS.
  • 00:49:59.290 --> 00:50:00.160
  • I THINK THEY'RE ON THEIR WAY
  • 00:50:00.160 --> 00:50:01.080
  • TO LUNCH.
  • 00:50:01.080 --> 00:50:02.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:50:02.290 --> 00:50:04.250
  • WE GO FROM KINDERGARTEN ALL
  • 00:50:04.250 --> 00:50:05.250
  • THE WAY THROUGH THE 12TH GRADE
  • 00:50:05.250 --> 00:50:07.110
  • EACH AND EVERY DAY,
  • 00:50:07.110 --> 00:50:08.140
  • ENCOUNTERING THESE CHILDREN,
  • 00:50:08.140 --> 00:50:10.010
  • NOT WITH AN INDOCTRINATION
  • 00:50:10.010 --> 00:50:11.180
  • OF A SECULAR CURRICULUM,
  • 00:50:11.180 --> 00:50:12.260
  • BUT WITH A CHRIST-CENTERED
  • 00:50:12.260 --> 00:50:13.270
  • FOUNDATION IN THEIR EDUCATION.
  • 00:50:13.270 --> 00:50:15.110
  • JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO,
  • 00:50:15.110 --> 00:50:16.280
  • OVER A HUNDRED CHILDREN MADE
  • 00:50:16.280 --> 00:50:18.190
  • THEIR PROFESSIONS OF FAITH
  • 00:50:18.190 --> 00:50:20.140
  • AND RECEIVED WATER BAPTISM
  • 00:50:20.140 --> 00:50:22.000
  • IN FRONT OF THEIR PEERS
  • 00:50:22.000 --> 00:50:22.280
  • AND IN FRONT OF OTHERS.
  • 00:50:22.280 --> 00:50:24.060
  • IT WAS A WONDERFUL THING
  • 00:50:24.060 --> 00:50:25.100
  • TO SEE.
  • 00:50:25.100 --> 00:50:26.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:50:29.050 --> 00:50:32.050
  • NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE A SCHOOL
  • 00:50:32.050 --> 00:50:33.110
  • CAMPUS AND THIS CHURCH CAMPUS;
  • 00:50:33.110 --> 00:50:34.200
  • WE HAVE A TARPLEY HILL COUNTRY
  • 00:50:34.200 --> 00:50:36.150
  • CAMP CAMPUS WHERE WE SEND
  • 00:50:36.150 --> 00:50:38.030
  • OUR KIDS ON A REGULAR BASIS
  • 00:50:38.030 --> 00:50:40.060
  • FOR WEEKEND RETREATS,
  • 00:50:40.060 --> 00:50:41.100
  • FOR REVIVAL SERVICES,
  • 00:50:41.100 --> 00:50:42.200
  • FOR SUMMER CAMPS,
  • 00:50:42.200 --> 00:50:43.110
  • WINTER CAMPS,
  • 00:50:43.110 --> 00:50:44.290
  • AND A NUMBER OF OTHER THINGS,
  • 00:50:44.290 --> 00:50:47.100
  • BECAUSE THESE CHILDREN
  • 00:50:47.110 --> 00:50:50.110
  • ARE 100% OF OUR FUTURE.
  • 00:50:51.080 --> 00:50:54.080
  • THIS IS WHAT THESE YOUTH LOOK
  • 00:50:54.080 --> 00:50:55.070
  • LIKE ON SUNDAY MORNING WHEN
  • 00:50:55.070 --> 00:50:56.120
  • THEY'RE WORSHIPING THE LORD.
  • 00:50:56.120 --> 00:50:59.080
  • NOW SOME OF YOU SIT THERE
  • 00:50:59.080 --> 00:51:00.080
  • AND YOU LOOK AT THAT PICTURE,
  • 00:51:00.080 --> 00:51:01.040
  • AND YOU GO, "IT'S TOO DARK.
  • 00:51:01.060 --> 00:51:04.060
  • THERE'S TOO MUCH SMOKE.
  • 00:51:04.060 --> 00:51:05.070
  • THE HOLY GHOST CAN'T BREATHE."
  • 00:51:05.070 --> 00:51:07.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:51:07.250 --> 00:51:10.250
  • NOW LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:51:10.250 --> 00:51:13.090
  • WHAT I SEE IS NOT PREFERENCE.
  • 00:51:13.210 --> 00:51:16.210
  • WHAT I SEE IS PURPOSE,
  • 00:51:16.210 --> 00:51:19.190
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:51:19.190 --> 00:51:20.120
  • "LET EVERYTHING THAT HATH
  • 00:51:20.120 --> 00:51:22.210
