  • "IF YOU CAN KEEP IT."
  • 00:01:40.160 --> 00:01:42.070
  • SOME SAID THAT THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:01:42.070 --> 00:01:43.190
  • FOR THIS NATION TO WORK WAS
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:46.160
  • FOR INDIVIDUALS TO GOVERN
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:48.030
  • THEMSELVES.
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:50.110
  • GEORGE WASHINGTON WAS ONE OF
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:51.130
  • THE LEADING PROPONENTS OF
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:52.150
  • THIS.
  • 00:01:52.150 --> 00:01:54.170
  • HE AND MANY OTHERS DECIDED
  • 00:01:54.170 --> 00:01:56.120
  • THAT AS LONG AS THE CITIZENS
  • 00:01:56.120 --> 00:01:57.230
  • OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:58.240
  • WILLFULLY BOWED TO
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:00.090
  • A HEAVENLY KING,
  • 00:02:00.090 --> 00:02:02.040
  • AS LONG AS THEY SUBMITTED
  • 00:02:02.040 --> 00:02:03.120
  • THEMSELVES TO HIS KINGDOM
  • 00:02:03.120 --> 00:02:05.200
  • AND HIS THRONE,
  • 00:02:05.200 --> 00:02:07.030
  • THEN THEY WOULD GOVERN
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.120
  • THEMSELVES.
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:10.160
  • JOHN ADAMS WAS THE SECOND
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:11.220
  • PRESIDENT
  • 00:02:11.220 --> 00:02:12.140
  • OF THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.030
  • HE WAS VERY INVOLVED IN
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.070
  • THE FOUNDING OF THIS NATION.
  • 00:02:15.070 --> 00:02:16.240
  • AND HE ONCE WROTE A LETTER
  • 00:02:16.240 --> 00:02:17.270
  • TO THE MASSACHUSETTS MILITIA
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:19.210
  • IN WHICH HE SAID,
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:21.010
  • "WE HAVE NO GOVERNMENT ARMED
  • 00:02:21.010 --> 00:02:23.110
  • WITH ENOUGH POWER,
  • 00:02:23.110 --> 00:02:24.190
  • CAPABLE OF CONTENDING
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:26.020
  • WITH HUMAN PASSIONS."
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:28.230
  • WHAT HE'S SAYING IS,
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:29.240
  • IF YOU WON'T GOVERN
  • 00:02:29.240 --> 00:02:30.280
  • YOURSELF, NO ONE ELSE WILL.
  • 00:02:31.090 --> 00:02:34.090
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:34.230
  • "OUR CONSTITUTION WAS MADE
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:36.130
  • ONLY FOR A MORAL
  • 00:02:36.130 --> 00:02:38.290
  • AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:41.100
  • IT IS WHOLLY INADEQUATE TO
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:44.000
  • THE GOVERNMENT OF ANY
  • 00:02:44.000 --> 00:02:45.050
  • OTHER."
  • 00:02:45.050 --> 00:02:47.130
  • HE'S LETTING US KNOW
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:48.120
  • THAT IN ORDER FOR
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:49.150
  • THE COUNTRY TO SURVIVE,
  • 00:02:49.150 --> 00:02:50.250
  • WE MUST REMAIN CLOSELY
  • 00:02:50.250 --> 00:02:52.090
  • CONNECTED TO OUR FAITH.
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:55.180
  • GEORGE WASHINGTON,
  • 00:02:55.180 --> 00:02:57.020
  • MANY WHO CALL HIM THE FATHER
  • 00:02:57.020 --> 00:02:58.060
  • OF THIS NATION,
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:58.280
  • THE FIRST PRESIDENT
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:02:59.280
  • OF THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:01.010
  • HE SAID THESE WORDS,
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:02.110
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:03:02.110 --> 00:03:02.250
  • "REASON AND EXPERIENCE
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:04.250
  • FORBID US TO EXPECT THAT
  • 00:03:04.250 --> 00:03:07.060
  • NATIONAL MORALITY CAN
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.170
  • PREVAIL IN EXCLUSION OF
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:10.110
  • RELIGIOUS PRINCIPLES."
  • 00:03:10.110 --> 00:03:13.080
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:13.230
  • IN ORDER FOR THE SOCIETY TO
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:15.190
  • BE VIRTUOUS,
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:16.170
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE RELIGION.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:19.010
  • WHY DO WE HAVE SUCH
  • 00:03:19.010 --> 00:03:20.010
  • AN IMMORAL COUNTRY?
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.120
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE FORGOTTEN
  • 00:03:21.120 --> 00:03:23.060
  • FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:03:23.090 --> 00:03:26.090
  • THE REASON THAT I BRING UP
  • 00:03:26.090 --> 00:03:27.050
  • THESE MEN IS BECAUSE MODERN
  • 00:03:27.050 --> 00:03:28.180
  • HISTORIANS WANT TO TALK
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:29.280
  • ABOUT HOW THE 56 PATRIOTS
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:32.040
  • DECIDED TO REVOLT AGAINST
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.200
  • BRITAIN IN AN EFFORT FOR
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:35.030
  • THEM TO OBTAIN POWER AND FOR
  • 00:03:35.030 --> 00:03:36.250
  • THEM TO OBTAIN RICHES.
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:38.170
  • THE ABSOLUTE OPPOSITE IS
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:40.230
  • TRUE.
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:42.230
  • CONSIDER THAT THEIR WISDOM
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:44.180
  • INDEED ENSURED 200 YEARS OF
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:47.030
  • PROSPERITY IN WHICH THIS
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.290
  • NATION WAS EXALTED ABOVE
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:50.120
  • EVERY NATION.
  • 00:03:50.120 --> 00:03:51.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:03:51.120 --> 00:03:52.000
  • NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY
  • 00:03:52.000 --> 00:03:53.050
  • WROTE DOWN,
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:54.040
  • BUT BECAUSE OF HOW WE CHOSE
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:03:55.290
  • TO LIVE.
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:58.170
  • WE PUT GOD FIRST.
  • 00:03:58.200 --> 00:04:01.220
  • DURING THIS
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:02.050
  • CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.050
  • OF 1787,
  • 00:04:03.050 --> 00:04:04.230
  • IT'S RECORDED THAT AT ONE
  • 00:04:04.230 --> 00:04:05.290
  • VERY HEATED MOMENT,
  • 00:04:05.290 --> 00:04:08.090
  • MANY OF THE DELEGATES
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.070
  • DECIDED THAT THE WHOLE THING
  • 00:04:09.070 --> 00:04:10.140
  • SHOULD BE DISMISSED;
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.150
  • THAT EACH SHOULD GO BACK TO
  • 00:04:11.150 --> 00:04:12.270
  • HIS OWN COLONY AND THAT
  • 00:04:12.270 --> 00:04:14.010
  • THERE WAS NO WAY THAT THERE
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:15.150
  • WAS GOING TO BE A CONSENSUS
  • 00:04:15.150 --> 00:04:17.000
  • ON THE KIND OF GOVERNMENT IN
  • 00:04:17.000 --> 00:04:18.050
  • THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:04:18.050 --> 00:04:20.050
  • IT WAS THEN THAT
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:22.120
  • 81-YEAR-OLD
  • 00:04:22.120 --> 00:04:23.080
  • BENJAMIN FRANKLIN,
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:25.190
  • WHO MODERN HISTORIANS CALL
  • 00:04:25.190 --> 00:04:27.090
  • "A SCOUNDREL" --
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.290
  • OOH, WHAT A DIRTY WORD.
  • 00:04:30.110 --> 00:04:33.110
  • HE STOOD TO HIS FEET.
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:36.190
  • AND WHILE THE HISTORIANS OF
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:37.230
  • TODAY WANT TO SAY THAT HE
  • 00:04:37.230 --> 00:04:39.000
  • WAS NOT A RELIGIOUS MAN,
  • 00:04:39.000 --> 00:04:40.080
  • LISTEN TO THE WORDS THAT HE
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:41.070
  • SAID.
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:43.020
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:43.180
  • "WE HAVE BEEN TOLD
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:44.230
  • IN SACRED WRITINGS --"
  • 00:04:44.230 --> 00:04:46.070
  • NOW SOME MAY WANT TO DEBATE
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:47.120
  • WHAT HE CONSIDERED
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:48.130
  • TO BE SACRED,
  • 00:04:48.130 --> 00:04:49.020
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:04:49.020 --> 00:04:51.040
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:04:51.040 --> 00:04:51.220
  • "WE HAVE BEEN TOLD IN
  • 00:04:51.220 --> 00:04:52.250
  • SACRED WRITINGS,
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:53.180
  • 'EXCEPT THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:55.060
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:56.210
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:57.260
  • WHO BUILD IT.'"
  • 00:04:57.260 --> 00:04:58.140
  • WHERE DO YOU THINK HE
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:04:59.080
  • GOT THAT FROM?
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:00.270
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:03.000 --> 00:05:06.000
  • AND THEN HE CONTINUED.
  • 00:05:07.200 --> 00:05:10.200
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:11.040
  • "I FIRMLY BELIEVE THIS
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.120
  • AND I ALSO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:14.230
  • WITHOUT HIS CUNNING AID,
  • 00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:17.260
  • WE WILL SUCCEED IN THIS
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:19.080
  • POLITICAL BUILDING NO BETTER
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:21.000
  • THAN THE BUILDERS OF BABEL."
  • 00:05:22.070 --> 00:05:25.070
  • WHO WAS BABEL?
  • 00:05:25.070 --> 00:05:27.000
  • BABEL WAS A UNITED PEOPLE
  • 00:05:27.000 --> 00:05:28.110
  • WHO WANTED A GOVERNMENT
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:29.100
  • SEPARATE FROM GOD.
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.100
  • AND GOD DESTROYED THEIR
  • 00:05:30.100 --> 00:05:31.120
  • GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:33.090
  • AND HERE BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
  • 00:05:33.090 --> 00:05:34.110
  • IS SAYING,
  • 00:05:34.110 --> 00:05:35.020
  • UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:05:35.020 --> 00:05:36.040
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:05:36.040 --> 00:05:37.010
  • HE'LL DESTROY
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:37.290
  • OUR GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:05:37.290 --> 00:05:39.290
  • LISTEN TO WHAT HE DESCRIBES
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:41.070
  • AS BEING THE BEHAVIOR OF
  • 00:05:41.070 --> 00:05:42.140
  • A PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE GOD
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:43.280
  • IN THEIR GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:45.100
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:45.240
  • "WE SHALL BE DIVIDED BY
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:47.030
  • OUR LITTLE LOCAL INTERESTS.
  • 00:05:47.030 --> 00:05:49.230
  • OUR PROJECTS WILL BE
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:50.230
  • CONFOUNDED.
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:51.150
  • AND WE OURSELVES SHALL
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:52.170
  • BECOME A REPROACH
  • 00:05:52.170 --> 00:05:54.020
  • AND A BYWORD IN FUTURE AGES."
  • 00:05:54.140 --> 00:05:57.140
  • NOW DOES THIS MAN SOUND LIKE
  • 00:05:57.140 --> 00:05:58.180
  • A SCOUNDREL OR A PROPHET?
  • 00:05:58.210 --> 00:06:01.230
  • IS HE AN INDIVIDUAL WHO
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:02.280
  • UNDERSTOOD WHAT NEEDED TO BE
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:04.160
  • DONE IN ORDER FOR SOCIETY
  • 00:06:04.160 --> 00:06:06.040
  • TO REMAIN FREE?
  • 00:06:06.040 --> 00:06:07.240
  • WE ARE DIVIDED IN
  • 00:06:07.240 --> 00:06:08.200
  • OUR LOCAL INTERESTS.
  • 00:06:08.200 --> 00:06:09.220
  • WE'RE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:10.240
  • SELF THAN WE ARE ANYTHING
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:12.080
  • ELSE.
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:12.240
  • OUR LOCAL PROJECTS ARE
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:14.110
  • CONFOUNDED.
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:15.060
  • HOW COME WE CAN'T GET
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:16.080
  • ANYTHING DONE
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:17.050
  • IN THIS COUNTRY,
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:21.000
  • AND WE ARE IN DANGER
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:22.040
  • OF BECOMING A REPROACH
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:24.020
  • AND A BYWORD?
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:26.040
  • WHY?
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:27.220
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE FORGOTTEN,
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:29.000
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:31.010
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:32.280
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN WHO BUILD
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:34.270
  • IT."
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:36.090
  • YOU CANNOT BUILD
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:37.030
  • A SCHOOLHOUSE TO EDUCATE
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:38.180
  • YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:39.130
  • UNLESS YOU PUT GOD IN IT,
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:41.090
  • LEST YOU EDUCATE IN VAIN.
  • 00:06:41.090 --> 00:06:43.250
  • YOU CANNOT BUILD YOUR HOUSE
  • 00:06:43.250 --> 00:06:45.100
  • UNLESS GOD IS THE CENTER OF
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:46.190
  • IT.
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:47.110
  • BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT YOU
  • 00:06:47.110 --> 00:06:48.160
  • RECEIVE IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:49.260
  • UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:06:49.260 --> 00:06:51.080
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:06:51.080 --> 00:06:52.040
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN WHO BUILD
  • 00:06:52.040 --> 00:06:53.220
  • IT.
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:54.200
  • YOU WANT A MARRIAGE?
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:55.180
  • YOU WANT A BUSINESS?
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:56.110
  • YOU WANT A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:57.200
  • SEPARATE FROM WHAT
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:06:58.120
  • GOD'S WORD WILL ALLOW?
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:07:00.260
  • YOU DO IT IN VAIN,
  • 00:07:00.260 --> 00:07:02.040
  • BECAUSE UNLESS THE LORD
  • 00:07:02.040 --> 00:07:03.150
  • BUILD THE HOUSE,
  • 00:07:03.150 --> 00:07:05.110
  • YOU LABOR IN VAIN WHO BUILD
  • 00:07:05.110 --> 00:07:07.030
  • IT.
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:07.160
  • JESUS SAID IT THIS WAY:
  • 00:07:07.160 --> 00:07:09.020
  • APART FROM ME,
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:10.030
  • YOU CAN DO NOTHING.
  • 00:07:10.030 --> 00:07:12.260
  • EVERYTHING YOU DO
  • 00:07:12.260 --> 00:07:13.230
  • IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:14.130
  • IF YOU DO NOT DO BY
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:15.190
  • HIS GRACE AND BY HIS WORD,
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:17.230
  • THEN IT'S IN VAIN.
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:20.000
  • UPON FRANKLIN'S WORDS,
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:21.100
  • COOLER HEADS PREVAILED.
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:22.240
  • AND THE MEN OF THIS
  • 00:07:22.240 --> 00:07:23.200
  • CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION
  • 00:07:23.200 --> 00:07:24.290
  • MADE THEIR DECISION
  • 00:07:24.290 --> 00:07:26.090
  • THAT UPON LEAVING THE BUILDING,
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:28.260
  • THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:29.270
  • A REPUBLIC.
  • 00:07:29.270 --> 00:07:32.140
  • MISS POWELL FROM
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:33.050
  • PHILADELPHIA RAN UP TO
  • 00:07:33.050 --> 00:07:34.060
  • BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AS SOON AS
  • 00:07:34.060 --> 00:07:35.190
  • SHE SAW HIM.
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:36.150
  • AND SHE ASKED,
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:37.190
  • "SO WHAT HAVE WE GOT?
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:39.190
  • A REPUBLIC OR A MONARCHY?"
  • 00:07:39.240 --> 00:07:42.240
  • AND FRANKLIN'S RESPONSE,
  • 00:07:42.240 --> 00:07:45.070
  • "A REPUBLIC, MADAME...
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:47.180
  • IF YOU CAN KEEP IT."
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:51.020
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:52.060
  • IF YOU CAN KEEP IT.
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:56.000
  • IN HIS 81 YEARS OF WISDOM,
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:57.220
  • HE UNDERSTOOD JUST WHAT
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:07:59.080
  • DEUTERONOMY 28:1 SAID,
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.080
  • IF YOU OBEY, IF YOU HEED,
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:05.280
  • THEN YOU WILL BE BLESSED.
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:08.240
  • HE KNEW THEN WHAT WE MUST
  • 00:08:08.240 --> 00:08:10.000
  • REMEMBER NOW;
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:10.270
  • THAT IF AMERICA IS GOING
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:12.000
  • TO SURVIVE,
  • 00:08:12.000 --> 00:08:13.020
  • SINCE THERE IS NO KING
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.230
  • ON A THRONE,
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:16.000
  • WE MUST BOW OUR KNEE
  • 00:08:16.000 --> 00:08:17.170
  • BEFORE THE KING OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:19.110
  • AND WE MUST BEND BEFORE
  • 00:08:19.110 --> 00:08:20.230
  • HIS THRONE OF GRACE AND MERCY,
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:22.210
  • BECAUSE BLESSED
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:23.220
  • IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:26.010
  • IS THE LORD.
  • 00:08:26.010 --> 00:08:27.040
  • UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:29.170
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:08:29.170 --> 00:08:30.220
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:33.000
  • WHO BUILD IT.
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:35.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:40.230
  • IF WE WANT TO CONSIDER
  • 00:08:40.230 --> 00:08:43.160
  • THIS NATION A HOUSEHOLD,
  • 00:08:43.160 --> 00:08:45.070
  • THEN WE MUST CONSIDER THE
  • 00:08:45.070 --> 00:08:46.060
  • FOUNDATION THAT THE HOUSE IS
  • 00:08:46.060 --> 00:08:47.180
  • BUILT ON.
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:49.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS: IF THE
  • 00:08:49.050 --> 00:08:50.070
  • FOUNDATIONS BE DESTROYED,
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:51.290
  • WHAT THEN CAN THE RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:08:51.290 --> 00:08:53.000
  • DO?
  • 00:08:53.000 --> 00:08:54.090
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT SAYS
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:55.220
  • THAT THE CHURCH
  • 00:08:55.220 --> 00:08:56.130
  • OF THE LIVING GOD
  • 00:08:56.130 --> 00:08:57.200
  • IS THE FOUNDATION.
  • 00:08:57.200 --> 00:08:58.290
  • IT IS THE PILLAR OF TRUTH
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:00.260
  • IN SOCIETY.
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:03.150
  • HERE IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:09:03.150 --> 00:09:04.190
  • WE HAVE A LOT OF DEFINITIONS
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.190
  • FOR THE CHURCH.
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:07.180
  • BUT I'M NOT SURE THAT WE
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:08.250
  • REMEMBER WHAT IT MEANS TO BE
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:10.080
  • THE PILLAR OF TRUTH
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:12.010
  • IN SOCIETY.
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:13.250
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO
  • 00:09:13.250 --> 00:09:15.020
  • FOR AMERICA
  • 00:09:15.020 --> 00:09:15.280
  • ON HER 240TH BIRTHDAY?
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:18.240
  • RECOMMIT YOURSELF TO THE
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:20.080
  • FOUNDATIONS OF YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:09:20.080 --> 00:09:22.180
  • BE A BIBLE-BELIEVING
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:23.270
  • BELIEVER.
  • 00:09:23.270 --> 00:09:25.050
  • BE A PERSON OF ACTION.
  • 00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:26.220
  • FOR THE BIBLE SAYS: FAITH
  • 00:09:26.220 --> 00:09:27.260
  • WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD.
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:29.140
  • BE A PERSON OF CONVICTION,
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:31.080
  • WHO REFUSES TO COWER IN
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:33.080
  • THE FACE OF PRESSURE.
  • 00:09:33.210 --> 00:09:36.210
  • DO WHAT JESUS SAID: HAVE
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:38.110
  • FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:39.250
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:09:39.250 --> 00:09:40.240
  • HAVE FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.130
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:42.130 --> 00:09:43.030
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS IN
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:44.060
  • HEBREWS 11: WITHOUT FAITH,
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:46.070
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:47.100
  • GOD.
  • 00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:48.050
  • HAVE FAITH THAT
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:49.050
  • THE LIFE-GIVING BLOOD
  • 00:09:49.050 --> 00:09:50.150
  • OF JESUS CHRIST HAS CLEANSED
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:52.130
  • YOU OF ALL SIN.
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:54.040
  • AND YOUR HOPE IS IN HIM
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:56.010
  • WHO GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:58.170
  • HAVE FAITH IN THE FACT THAT
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:09:59.220
  • BY GRACE,
  • 00:09:59.220 --> 00:10:00.220
  • YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED.
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:01.290
  • HOW WERE YOU SAVED?
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:03.070
  • THROUGH FAITH THAT NO MAN
  • 00:10:03.070 --> 00:10:04.160
  • CAN BOAST.
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:06.020
  • HAVE FAITH THAT WHEN YOU PRAY
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:07.280
  • AND ASK ANYTHING
  • 00:10:07.280 --> 00:10:09.110
  • OF THE FATHER
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:10.040
  • IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS;
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:11.250
  • THAT WHEN YOU PRAY IN FAITH,
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.180
  • MOUNTAINS OF IMPOSSIBILITY
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:15.110
  • ARE MOVED,
  • 00:10:15.110 --> 00:10:16.060
  • SICKNESSES ARE CAUSED TO BE
  • 00:10:16.060 --> 00:10:18.070
  • DESTROYED, DEMONS TREMBLE.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:19.260
  • AND HELL BACKS UP.
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:21.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:22.120
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE PRAYING
  • 00:10:22.120 --> 00:10:23.090
  • IN FAITH BELIEVING.
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:25.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:25.110 --> 00:10:26.110
  • FAITH IS HOW YOUR SPIRITUAL
  • 00:10:26.110 --> 00:10:27.260
  • FOREFATHERS SUBDUED
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:29.080
  • KINGDOMS.
  • 00:10:29.080 --> 00:10:30.060
  • FAITH IS HOW THEY WORKED
  • 00:10:30.060 --> 00:10:31.140
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:10:31.140 --> 00:10:32.160
  • FAITH IS HOW THEY TURNED
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:33.260
  • BACK ARMIES.
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:34.260
  • FAITH IS HOW THEY
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:35.250
  • RECEIVED THEIR DEAD BACK
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:36.290
  • TO LIFE.
  • 00:10:36.290 --> 00:10:37.220
  • FAITH IS THE KEY THAT
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:39.060
  • UNLOCKS THE DOOR OF
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:40.260
  • EVERY PRECIOUS PROMISE FOUND
  • 00:10:40.260 --> 00:10:42.110
  • IN HIS WORD.
  • 00:10:42.110 --> 00:10:43.120
  • FAITH IS THE WAY THAT THE
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:44.200
  • WINDOWS OF HEAVEN ARE OPENED
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.090
  • AND PROVISION IS POURED OUT
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:47.220
  • UPON YOU.

  • CONFIDENCE,
  • 00:10:54.050 --> 00:10:55.030
  • NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME
  • 00:10:55.030 --> 00:10:56.180
  • SHALL PROSPER.

  • FAITH IS HOW YOU SMILE

  • A WORLD FILLED WITH ECONOMIC
  • 00:11:06.180 --> 00:11:08.060
  • CHAOS, AND SAY,

  • A DOCTOR'S OFFICE
  • 00:11:16.240 --> 00:11:18.060
  • AND LISTEN TO A DIAGNOSIS,
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:20.050
  • AND WALK OUT SAYING,
  • 00:11:20.050 --> 00:11:21.120
  • BY HIS STRIPES, I AM HEALED.
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:25.020
  • FAITH IS HOW YOU SAY,

  • WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME?
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:30.160
  • CHURCH, HAVE FAITH IN GOD!
  • 00:11:30.250 --> 00:11:33.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:11:40.100 --> 00:11:43.100
  • DON'T HAVE FAITH IN
  • 00:11:43.100 --> 00:11:44.260
  • A GOVERNMENT;
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:45.180
  • HAVE FAITH IN THE ONE
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:46.250
  • WHO SITS ON THE THRONE.
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:48.280
  • (AMEN!)
  • 00:11:48.280 --> 00:11:49.130
  • DON'T HAVE FAITH IN
  • 00:11:49.130 --> 00:11:50.100
  • A FEDERAL RESERVE;
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:51.150
  • HAVE FAITH IN JEHOVAH JIREH.
  • 00:11:51.150 --> 00:11:53.220
  • (AMEN!)
  • 00:11:53.220 --> 00:11:55.160
  • DON'T HAVE FEAR ABOUT
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:56.210
  • TOMORROW;
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:57.130
  • HAVE FAITH ABOUT THE GOD
  • 00:11:57.130 --> 00:11:59.070
  • WHO HOLDS TOMORROW.
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.260
  • (AMEN!)
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:02.270
  • AND TO YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:05.030
  • ADD POWER.
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:08.140
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:09.230
  • IN THE CHURCH TODAY IS THAT
  • 00:12:09.230 --> 00:12:10.230
  • WE HAVE FORGOTTEN WHERE
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:11.250
  • OUR POWER COMES FROM.
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:15.090
  • WE TALK ABOUT OUR FAITH
  • 00:12:15.090 --> 00:12:16.160
  • BUT WE DON'T PUT THE FUEL
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:17.270
  • IN OUR FAITH,
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:18.220
  • WHICH IS THE POWER
  • 00:12:18.220 --> 00:12:20.000
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:12:20.000 --> 00:12:22.250
  • THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:23.200
  • SAYS: AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE
  • 00:12:23.200 --> 00:12:25.260
  • POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:28.140
  • HAS COME UPON YOU.
  • 00:12:29.150 --> 00:12:32.150
  • WHY ISN'T THE CHURCH ABLE
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:33.220
  • TO WITNESS FOR THE LORD IN
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:35.020
  • THE STREETS?
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:35.280
  • BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE
  • 00:12:35.280 --> 00:12:36.240
  • THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:12:36.240 --> 00:12:38.120
  • IN US TO DO SO.
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:40.220
  • WHY ARE WE AFRAID INSTEAD
  • 00:12:40.220 --> 00:12:43.150
  • OF SPIRIT FILLED?
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:46.040
  • BECAUSE WE DON'T POSSESS
  • 00:12:46.040 --> 00:12:47.080
  • THE POWER.
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:49.230
  • CHURCHES READ ACTS 1:8: AND
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:52.150
  • YOU SHALL BE WITNESSES TO ME
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:53.240
  • TO THE UTTERMOST PARTS
  • 00:12:53.240 --> 00:12:54.230
  • OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:12:54.230 --> 00:12:55.110
  • IN JERUSALEM AND IN JUDEA
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:57.080
  • AND EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:12:57.080 --> 00:12:58.170
  • AND SOME GET EXCITED ABOUT
  • 00:12:58.170 --> 00:12:59.290
  • WHAT GOD CAN DO
  • 00:12:59.290 --> 00:13:01.110
  • IN THE UTTERMOST PARTS.
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:02.140
  • AND OTHERS GET EXCITED
  • 00:13:02.140 --> 00:13:03.170
  • ABOUT WHAT GOD CAN DO IN
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:05.050
  • THEIR HOMETOWN.
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:06.070
  • BUT LET ME TELL YOU,
  • 00:13:06.070 --> 00:13:07.040
  • WITHOUT THE POWER
  • 00:13:07.040 --> 00:13:07.280
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:09.020
  • YOU CAN DO NOTHING!
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:11.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:16.120
  • CONSIDER THIS;
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:18.110
  • THE CHURCH WAS NOT BORN
  • 00:13:18.110 --> 00:13:20.060
  • UNTIL THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:21.170
  • UPON IT.
  • 00:13:21.170 --> 00:13:24.060
  • IN GALATIANS 4,
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:25.180
  • WE READ CONCERNING THE BIRTH
  • 00:13:25.180 --> 00:13:27.050
  • OF CHRIST: IN THE FULLNESS
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:28.250
  • OF TIME.
  • 00:13:28.250 --> 00:13:29.210
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:13:29.210 --> 00:13:30.200
  • IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME.
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:32.230
  • THE BIBLE IS A VERY
  • 00:13:32.230 --> 00:13:33.280
  • EXACT BOOK.
  • 00:13:33.280 --> 00:13:34.240
  • IT GIVES YOU DATES AND TIMES
  • 00:13:34.240 --> 00:13:36.290
  • AND GIVES YOU
  • 00:13:36.290 --> 00:13:37.210
  • THE UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:38.290
  • DID EVERYTHING ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:13:40.080 --> 00:13:43.080
  • NONE OF IT WAS BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:13:43.140 --> 00:13:46.140
  • JESUS CHRIST IN HIS EARTHLY
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:47.270
  • MINISTRY,
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:48.160
  • WHEN SOMEONE ASKED HIM TO DO
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:49.230
  • SOMETHING --
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:50.190
  • AT ONE POINT
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:51.060
  • HIS MOTHER WANTED A MIRACLE.
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:52.160
  • AND HE SAID: MY TIME HAS NOT
  • 00:13:52.160 --> 00:13:54.000
  • COME.
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:56.130
  • AT ANOTHER POINT,
  • 00:13:56.130 --> 00:13:57.290
  • SOMEONE ASKED HIM FOR
  • 00:13:57.290 --> 00:13:58.240
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:13:58.240 --> 00:13:59.110
  • AND HE SAID: I CANNOT SAY
  • 00:13:59.110 --> 00:14:00.210
  • OR DO UNLESS THE FATHER
  • 00:14:00.210 --> 00:14:02.090
  • GRANTS ME PERMISSION.
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:05.050
  • HE WAS LETTING US KNOW
  • 00:14:05.050 --> 00:14:06.040
  • THAT IN HIS EARTHLY LIFE
  • 00:14:06.040 --> 00:14:07.110
  • AND MINISTRY,
  • 00:14:07.110 --> 00:14:08.020
  • NONE OF IT WAS DONE BY
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:09.010
  • CHANCE.
  • 00:14:09.010 --> 00:14:09.270
  • ALL OF IT WAS DONE ON GOD'S
  • 00:14:09.270 --> 00:14:11.180
  • SCHEDULED TIME.
  • 00:14:12.020 --> 00:14:15.020
  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
  • 00:14:15.020 --> 00:14:17.000
  • BECAUSE GOD DOES WHAT HE
  • 00:14:17.000 --> 00:14:18.100
  • DOES ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:22.100
  • YOU MAY READ THE HEADLINES
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:23.170
  • AND BE SURPRISED,
  • 00:14:23.170 --> 00:14:24.190
  • BUT GOD HAS NEVER LOOKED AT
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:25.220
  • THIS EARTH AND GONE, OOPS.
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:27.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.100
  • THE PURPOSE OF THE BIRTH
  • 00:14:29.100 --> 00:14:31.270
  • OF CHRIST WAS SO THAT HE,
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:33.160
  • JESUS,
  • 00:14:33.160 --> 00:14:34.050
  • COULD BE THE LAMB
  • 00:14:34.050 --> 00:14:35.010
  • FOR SINNERS SLAIN.
  • 00:14:35.010 --> 00:14:37.040
  • WHEN JOHN THE BAPTIST SAW
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:38.060
  • HIM,
  • 00:14:38.060 --> 00:14:38.200
  • HE SAID: BEHOLD THE LAMB OF
  • 00:14:38.200 --> 00:14:40.010
  • GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SINS
  • 00:14:40.010 --> 00:14:41.170
  • OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:43.080
  • CHRIST WAS BAPTIZED
  • 00:14:43.080 --> 00:14:44.110
  • IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME.
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:45.270
  • HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WERE
  • 00:14:45.270 --> 00:14:46.290
  • CALLED AND HE TAUGHT THEM
  • 00:14:46.290 --> 00:14:48.080
  • THE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:48.270
  • OF THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:49.240
  • AND HE TOLD THEM
  • 00:14:49.240 --> 00:14:50.230
  • THESE THINGS.
  • 00:14:50.230 --> 00:14:51.130
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:14:51.130 --> 00:14:52.070
  • I MUST BE CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:14:52.070 --> 00:14:53.120
  • I WILL RISE AGAIN.
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:54.260
  • AND I'M GOING TO ASCEND
  • 00:14:54.260 --> 00:14:56.040
  • TO MY FATHER.
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:57.050
  • WHEN I GET THERE,
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:15:00.060
  • I'M GOING TO SEND YOU
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:01.050
  • ANOTHER.
  • 00:15:01.050 --> 00:15:03.090
  • AND YOU WILL RECEIVE POWER
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:06.130
  • WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:15:06.130 --> 00:15:07.130
  • COMES UPON YOU.
  • 00:15:07.130 --> 00:15:09.180
  • POWER TO DO WHAT?
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:11.270
  • JESUS SAID: GREATER THINGS
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:14.230
  • THAN THESE...
  • 00:15:14.230 --> 00:15:17.000
  • THEY SAW JESUS TAKE A SACK
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:18.150
  • LUNCH AND FEED 5.000.
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:20.070
  • THEY SAW HIM STOP A FUNERAL
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:21.220
  • PROCESSION AND BRING
  • 00:15:21.220 --> 00:15:22.270
  • THE DEAD BACK TO LIFE.
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:24.050
  • THEY SAW HIM WALK ON WATER
  • 00:15:24.050 --> 00:15:25.280
  • AND CALM STORMS.
  • 00:15:25.280 --> 00:15:27.030
  • AND HE LET US KNOW THAT WHEN
  • 00:15:27.030 --> 00:15:28.220
  • WE RECEIVE THAT POWER,
  • 00:15:29.000 --> 00:15:32.000
  • GREATER THINGS THAN THESE
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:34.080
  • COULD WE DO.
  • 00:15:34.090 --> 00:15:37.090
  • WE READ: WHEN PENTECOST HAD
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:38.260
  • FULLY COME,
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:42.060
  • THE WIND AND THE FIRE
  • 00:15:42.060 --> 00:15:43.050
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FILLED
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:44.180
  • THAT UPPER ROOM,
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:45.260
  • AND THE CHURCH WAS BORN.
  • 00:15:46.000 --> 00:15:49.000
  • NOT THE CHURCH DIVIDED,
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:51.070
  • BUT THE CHURCH TRIUMPHANT.
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:53.070
  • NOT THE CHURCH THAT IS
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:54.070
  • WORRIED,
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:55.020
  • BUT THE CHURCH THAT HELL
  • 00:15:55.020 --> 00:15:56.060
  • ITSELF CANNOT STAND AGAINST.
  • 00:15:56.060 --> 00:15:58.030
  • THE BLOOD-BOUGHT CHURCH,
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:15:59.190
  • THE REDEEMED THAT IS
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:01.020
  • WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE.
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:02.230
  • WHEN THE CHURCH WAS BORN
  • 00:16:02.230 --> 00:16:04.080
  • IN THE UPPER ROOM,
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:05.140
  • IT LET US KNOW THESE THINGS:
  • 00:16:05.140 --> 00:16:07.020
  • ONE,
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:07.230
  • CHRIST WAS BACK IN HEAVEN;
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:09.130
  • TWO,
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:10.010
  • GOD HAD ACCEPTED
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:11.010
  • THE SACRIFICE FOR SIN;
  • 00:16:11.010 --> 00:16:12.210
  • THREE, OUR SAVIOR WAS SEATED
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:14.220
  • AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER;
  • 00:16:14.220 --> 00:16:16.100
  • AND FOUR,
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:17.010
  • BY THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:19.030
  • AND THE POWER OF THE
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:19.260
  • HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:16:19.260 --> 00:16:21.010
  • WE HAD THE ABILITY TO BRING
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:22.210
  • THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN TO
  • 00:16:22.210 --> 00:16:24.010
  • THIS EARTH.
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:24.250
  • WE HAD THE POWER TO LAY
  • 00:16:24.250 --> 00:16:26.020
  • HANDS ON THE SICK
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:27.160
  • AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:29.000
  • WE HAD THE POWER TO CAST OUT
  • 00:16:29.000 --> 00:16:30.160
  • DEMONS WITH A WORD.
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:32.000
  • WE HAD THE POWER OF NOT JUST
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:33.250
  • ANY NAME,
  • 00:16:33.250 --> 00:16:34.250
  • BUT THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:36.200
  • EVERY NAME.
  • 00:16:36.200 --> 00:16:37.180
  • MENTION THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.080
  • AND TROUBLES VANISH.
  • 00:16:39.080 --> 00:16:40.190
  • WORSHIP THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:42.080
  • AND DEMONS FLEE.
  • 00:16:42.080 --> 00:16:43.230
  • SPEAK THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:45.120
  • AND YOU CAN HAVE WHATEVER
  • 00:16:45.120 --> 00:16:46.140
  • YOU ASK FOR.
  • 00:16:46.140 --> 00:16:47.180
  • CHURCH,
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:48.060
  • IT IS TIME FOR US TO BE
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:49.210
  • SATURATED WITH THE POWER
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:51.130
  • OF THE HOLY GHOST,
  • 00:16:51.130 --> 00:16:52.270
  • AND LET GOD ARISE,
  • 00:16:52.270 --> 00:16:54.060
  • AND HIS ENEMIES BE
  • 00:16:54.060 --> 00:16:55.040
  • SCATTERED!
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:56.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:59.280 --> 00:17:03.000
  • AND IF WE'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:05.210
  • A FAITHFUL
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:06.170
  • AND POWERFUL CHURCH,
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:07.190
  • WE MUST BE AN OBEDIENT
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:09.060
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:17:09.060 --> 00:17:11.130
  • BEHAVE LIKE YOU BELIEVE.
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:13.290
  • (AMEN.)
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:17.170
  • WHY?
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:18.150
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS:
  • 00:17:18.150 --> 00:17:19.080
  • FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS --
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.160
  • WHAT?
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:21.150
  • -- DEAD.
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:22.260
  • YOU CAN HAVE ALL THE FAITH
  • 00:17:22.260 --> 00:17:24.040
  • YOU WANT IN GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:25.110
  • UNTIL YOU PUT IT TO WORK
  • 00:17:25.110 --> 00:17:26.160
  • THROUGH OBEDIENCE,
  • 00:17:26.160 --> 00:17:28.010
  • IT WON'T COME TO LIFE.
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:31.060
  • THERE ARE SOME CHURCHES THAT
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:32.140
  • READ SCRIPTURE IN OUR
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:33.100
  • MODERN WORLD AS A PART OF
  • 00:17:33.100 --> 00:17:34.260
  • THEIR RITUAL AND CEREMONY,
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:37.150
  • BUT THEY DO NOT TEACH
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:38.200
  • NOR BELIEVE THAT THIS IS
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:40.060
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT-INSPIRED
  • 00:17:40.060 --> 00:17:41.270
  • BREATH OF GOD.
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:44.160
  • THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:45.240
  • IT WAS BORN OF THE SPIRIT
  • 00:17:45.240 --> 00:17:47.210
  • AND IT IS PERFECT.
  • 00:17:47.210 --> 00:17:50.100
  • THERE ARE OTHER CHURCHES
  • 00:17:50.100 --> 00:17:51.050
  • THAT READ THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:17:51.050 --> 00:17:52.230
  • AND THEY CLAIM THAT IT'S
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:53.210
  • A HISTORICAL DOCUMENT.
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:54.290
  • THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:56.070
  • GOD DID DO THOSE THINGS
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:57.240
  • AT ONE TIME,
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:17:58.220
  • BUT HE DOESN'T DO THEM
  • 00:17:58.220 --> 00:17:59.170
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:17:59.170 --> 00:18:01.260
  • THEY'LL TELL YOU GOD USED TO
  • 00:18:01.260 --> 00:18:02.290
  • HEAL,
  • 00:18:02.290 --> 00:18:03.160
  • BUT THAT'S NOT FOR TODAY.
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:04.210
  • THERE USED TO BE SIGNS
  • 00:18:04.210 --> 00:18:05.190
  • AND WONDERS,
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:06.080
  • BUT THEY'RE DON'T HAPPEN
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:08.290
  • ANY LONGER.
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:11.190
  • CHURCH, WE ARE TOLD,

  • THE GOD WHO IS THE SAME

  • YESTERDAY, TODAY,
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:17.230
  • AND FOREVER.
  • 00:18:17.230 --> 00:18:18.180
  • BE FILLED WITH THE POWER OF
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:20.030
  • HIS SPIRIT AND BE OBEDIENT
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:22.290
  • TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:24.240
  • WHEN WE BECOME THAT CHURCH,
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.170
  • WE'LL HAVE SIGNS AND WONDERS.
  • 00:18:26.170 --> 00:18:28.260
  • WHEN WE BECOME THAT CHURCH,
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.080
  • YOU'LL SEE THE LOST FORSAKE

  • TO THE CROSS OF CHRIST.
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:34.220
  • WHEN WE BECOME THAT CHURCH,
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:36.120
  • THAT CHURCH IS WHERE
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:37.110
  • CAPTIVES HAVE SET FREE.

  • THAT CHURCH IS WHERE ADDICTS
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:46.170
  • ARE DELIVERED
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:47.100
  • FROM THEIR ADDICTION.
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:48.110
  • THAT CHURCH IS WHERE CANCERS

  • WE DECIDE THAT THEY HATE US.
  • 00:20:12.020 --> 00:20:15.020
  • FORGET THAT IT JUST COULD BE
  • 00:20:15.020 --> 00:20:16.060
  • GAS PAIN.

  • THE PRESSURE OF THE DAY.
  • 00:20:33.290 --> 00:20:35.100
  • WE MUST RISE TO THE OCCASION
  • 00:20:35.100 --> 00:20:37.150
  • AND BECOME THE SHINING CITY
