  • THAT IT SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:00:54.180 --> 00:00:55.030
  • THE MOMENT YOU DECIDE,
  • 00:00:55.030 --> 00:00:56.000
  • YOU MAKE THAT DECISION,
  • 00:00:56.000 --> 00:00:56.190
  • I'M GOING ALL IN.
  • 00:00:56.190 --> 00:00:57.090
  • GOING ALL IN WITH JESUS.
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:00:58.140

  • I'M GOING --
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:00.100
  • I'D SAY I'M GONNA BE
  • 00:01:00.100 --> 00:01:01.140
  • AT CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY.
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:02.120
  • I'M GONNA FOLLOW WHAT HE WANTS.
  • 00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:04.040
  • I'M GONNA TRY TO --
  • 00:01:04.040 --> 00:01:04.250
  • I'M GONNA GO ALL IN WITH GOD.
  • 00:01:04.250 --> 00:01:06.060
  • IT SEEMS LIKE THE MOMENT
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:07.180
  • YOU MADE THAT DECISION
  • 00:01:07.180 --> 00:01:08.110
  • LIKE THE FIGHT JUST INTENSIFIED.
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:10.120
  • IT'S LIKE THE MOMENT YOU BEGIN
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:11.140
  • TO PURSUE THE CALLING
  • 00:01:11.140 --> 00:01:13.080
  • THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU,
  • 00:01:13.080 --> 00:01:14.150
  • IS THE MOMENT THAT IT SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:01:14.150 --> 00:01:17.030
  • THE BATTLE GETS THE GREATEST
  • 00:01:17.030 --> 00:01:18.050
  • OR THE INCONVENIENCES
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:19.150
  • BECOME THE MOST IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:01:19.150 --> 00:01:21.220
  • I'VE FOUND THAT IT'S OFTEN
  • 00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:22.170
  • MORE CONVENIENT
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:23.050
  • TO NOT PURSUE THE CALL.
  • 00:01:23.120 --> 00:01:26.120
  • THAT THAT PATH
  • 00:01:26.120 --> 00:01:26.260
  • SEEMS A LOT EASIER.
  • 00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:29.110
  • BUT WHEN YOU BEGIN TO PURSUE
  • 00:01:29.110 --> 00:01:30.090
  • THE THING GOD HAS FOR YOU,
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:31.110
  • IT CAN BE GETTING TO GET
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:32.130
  • A LITTLE BIT INCONVENIENT.
  • 00:01:32.130 --> 00:01:33.000
  • OH, THERE'S BLESSINGS WITH IT
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:35.090
  • BUT I DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:01:35.090 --> 00:01:36.160
  • TO BE MISGUIDED TO KNOW
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:39.000
  • THAT THERE AREN'T BURDENS
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:39.260
  • WITH IT AS WELL.
  • 00:01:39.260 --> 00:01:40.220
  • YOU WON'T REALLY BE FULFILLED
  • 00:01:40.220 --> 00:01:41.170
  • IN LIFE UNTIL YOU FIGURE OUT
  • 00:01:41.170 --> 00:01:43.040
  • THAT CALLING
  • 00:01:43.040 --> 00:01:43.270
  • AND THEN YOU LIVE OUT
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:44.240
  • THAT CALLING.
  • 00:01:44.240 --> 00:01:46.010
  • GOD HAS A CALL ON YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:01:46.010 --> 00:01:48.160
  • YOU WERE PUT HERE
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:49.140
  • ON PURPOSE FOR A PURPOSE
  • 00:01:49.230 --> 00:01:52.230
  • - WE BELIEVE
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:57.130
  • THAT AS YOU INVEST

  • THE NEXT FEW MOMENTS
  • 00:01:58.140 --> 00:01:59.010
  • IN LISTENING TO TODAY'S SERMON,
  • 00:01:59.010 --> 00:02:00.200
  • THAT YOUR LIFE
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:01.040
  • COULD CHANGE FOR FOREVER.
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:02.180
  • SO LET'S LEAN INTO TOGETHER,
  • 00:02:02.180 --> 00:02:03.290

  • LIKE FIGURING THIS THING OUT.
  • 00:04:46.020 --> 00:04:47.190
  • JUST TELLING YOU,
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:48.140
  • GOD'S GOTTA CALL ON YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:50.180
  • BUT I DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:51.240
  • THAT THE CALL OF GOD MEANS
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:53.150
  • THAT EVERYTHING GOES EASY.
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:58.010
  • I DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:04:58.010 --> 00:04:59.140
  • TO BE CAUGHT OFF GUARD
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:05:01.130
  • WHEN YOU BEGIN
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:02.030
  • TO PURSUE THE CALL
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:04.030
  • AND IT GETS REALLY INCONVENIENT.
  • 00:05:04.030 --> 00:05:06.210
  • I FOUND THAT IT'S OFTEN
  • 00:05:06.210 --> 00:05:07.200
  • MORE CONVENIENT
  • 00:05:07.200 --> 00:05:08.140
  • TO NOT PURSUE THE CALL.
  • 00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:11.190
  • THAT, THAT PATH SEEMS
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:12.120
  • A LOT EASIER.
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:14.150
  • BUT WHEN YOU BEGIN TO PURSUE
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:15.110
  • THE THING GOD HAS FOR YOU,
  • 00:05:15.110 --> 00:05:16.280
  • IT CAN BEGIN TO GETTING
  • 00:05:16.280 --> 00:05:17.170
  • TO GET LITTLE BIT INCONVENIENT.
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:19.200
  • OH, THERE'S BLESSINGS WITH IT,
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:20.290
  • BUT I DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:22.100
  • TO BE MISGUIDED TO KNOW
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:24.040
  • THAT THERE AREN'T BURDENS
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:24.260
  • WITH IT AS WELL.
  • 00:05:24.260 --> 00:05:27.150
  • THERE IS A GREAT JOY,
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.190
  • BUT I DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:30.080
  • TO BE MISGUIDED TO THINK
  • 00:05:30.080 --> 00:05:30.290
  • THAT THERE MAY NOT BE SOME
  • 00:05:30.290 --> 00:05:31.210
  • MOMENTS OF PAIN WITH IT
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:33.010
  • AS WELL.
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:34.100
  • I'M NOT TRYING TO DETER
  • 00:05:34.100 --> 00:05:35.010
  • YOU FROM PURSUING YOUR CALL.
  • 00:05:35.010 --> 00:05:36.140
  • YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:36.280
  • "WELL, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:05:36.280 --> 00:05:37.180
  • IF I WANNA GO AFTER THE CALL.
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:38.250
  • I MEAN, YOU'RE MAKING IT
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:39.250
  • SOUND SO AWESOME."
  • 00:05:39.250 --> 00:05:42.150
  • NO, I JUST WANT YOU TO HAVE
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:43.120
  • YOUR EYES WIDE OPEN
  • 00:05:43.120 --> 00:05:45.120
  • ABOUT IT SEEMS LIKE THE STORM,
  • 00:05:45.120 --> 00:05:47.090
  • THE INCONVENIENCE,
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:48.010
  • COMES THE MOST.
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:49.110
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL KNEW THIS.
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:51.050
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:52.070
  • IN ACTS 27, PAUL IS ON HIS WAY.
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:55.030
  • HE'S PURSUING THE CALL OF GOD.
  • 00:05:55.030 --> 00:05:56.150
  • HE'S DOING WHAT GOD
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:57.030
  • HAS CALLED HIM TO.
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:05:57.260
  • HE'S PREACHING THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:05:57.260 --> 00:05:58.270
  • HE'S PLANTING CHURCHES.
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:02.250
  • AND THEN HE GETS ARRESTED
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:04.080
  • AND HE APPEALS TO CAESAR
  • 00:06:04.080 --> 00:06:07.050
  • BECAUSE HE'S A ROMAN CITIZEN.
  • 00:06:07.050 --> 00:06:08.180
  • HE APPEALS TO CAESAR
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:09.210
  • SO HE'S ON HIS WAY TO ROME.
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:12.000
  • AND AS HE'S MAKING HIS WAY
  • 00:06:12.000 --> 00:06:13.250
  • TO ROME, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:06:13.250 --> 00:06:15.130
  • THIS IN ACTS 27,
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:16.120
  • "HE'S IN A BOAT.
  • 00:06:16.120 --> 00:06:17.000
  • THEY'RE IN A VERY BIG BOAT
  • 00:06:17.000 --> 00:06:17.250
  • BECAUSE THERE IS ABOUT
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:19.170
  • 276 PEOPLE IN THIS BOAT.
  • 00:06:20.220 --> 00:06:23.220
  • THEY'RE ALL PRISONERS
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:25.050
  • AND THEY'RE ON THEIR WAY
  • 00:06:25.050 --> 00:06:25.230
  • TO ROME."
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:26.200
  • AND VERSE 13 SAYS THIS.
  • 00:06:26.200 --> 00:06:27.240
  • ACTS 27:13, LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:29.100
  • IT SAYS, "WHEN A GENTLE
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.030
  • WIND BEGAN TO BLOW..."
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:32.230
  • THAT'S ALL I'M GONNA READ
  • 00:06:32.230 --> 00:06:33.150
  • OF THAT.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.010
  • "WHEN A GENTLE WIND
  • 00:06:34.010 --> 00:06:34.200
  • BEGAN TO BLOW..."
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:36.140
  • NOW, WATCH THIS.
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:38.010
  • CHAPTER 27, YES,
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:39.120
  • Y'ALL WITH ME?
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:40.150
  • VERSE 27, LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:42.110
  • "ON THE 14TH NIGHT,
  • 00:06:42.110 --> 00:06:43.260
  • WE WERE STILL BEING
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:44.190
  • DRIVEN ACROSS
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:45.050
  • THE ADRIATIC SEA."
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:47.090
  • SO IT WENT FROM A GENTLE WIND
  • 00:06:47.090 --> 00:06:49.190
  • TO 14 DAYS OF A STORM.
  • 00:06:50.050 --> 00:06:53.050
  • I WONDER IF YOU'VE EVER
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:53.270
  • EXPERIENCED THAT.
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:55.070
  • YOU BEGIN TO PURSUE --
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:57.020
  • PAUL'S ON HIS WAY TO ROME,
  • 00:06:57.020 --> 00:06:57.280
  • HE'S APPEALING TO CAESAR,
  • 00:06:57.280 --> 00:06:58.290
  • HE'S DOING THE CALL OF GOD
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:00.090
  • ON HIS LIFE,
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:00.280
  • AND A GENTLE WIND COMES.
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:02.170
  • JUST A LITTLE THING.
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:03.140
  • JUST LIKE, OH, THAT.
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:04.030
  • THAT WAS A LITTLE INCONVENIENT.
  • 00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:05.260
  • OH, THAT, THAT WAS A --
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:06.230
  • OH, THAT.
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:07.080
  • THAT WASN'T A BIG DEAL,
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.130
  • BUT THAT WAS
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:08.280
  • A LITTLE BIT, RIGHT?
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:09.230
  • THEN HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW,
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:10.190
  • A FEW VERSES LATER,
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:12.130
  • A FEW MOMENTS LATER,
  • 00:07:12.130 --> 00:07:13.150
  • A FEW DAYS LATER,
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:14.280
  • NOW 14 DAYS
  • 00:07:14.280 --> 00:07:16.220
  • PAUL'S BEEN IN A STORM.
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:18.000
  • I WONDER IF YOU'VE EVER FOUND
  • 00:07:18.000 --> 00:07:18.250
  • YOURSELF GOING FROM
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.140
  • THAT WAS INCONVENIENT
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:22.030
  • TO THAT IS ALL HELL
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:22.290
  • JUST BROKE LOOSE.
  • 00:07:22.290 --> 00:07:24.080
  • LIKE YOU WENT FROM A GENTLE WIND
  • 00:07:24.080 --> 00:07:25.270
  • TO A LITTLE BIT OF STORM.
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.160
  • SOME OF Y'ALL LIVED
  • 00:07:27.160 --> 00:07:28.020
  • A LITTLE BIT OF LIFE,
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:28.230
  • I CAN TELL.
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:29.100
  • THE REST OF YOU,
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:30.070
  • LIFE WILL THROW YOU
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:31.080
  • SOME STORMS WHERE YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:33.070
  • IT MAY NOT BE 14 DAYS,
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:34.150
  • IT MAY BE 14 MONTHS.
  • 00:07:34.150 --> 00:07:36.090
  • YOU MAY FELT LIKE
  • 00:07:36.090 --> 00:07:36.240
  • IT WAS 14 YEARS
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.060
  • THAT YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:39.010
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF A STORM
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:40.040
  • THAT IS BLOWING YOU
  • 00:07:40.040 --> 00:07:41.000
  • ALL OVER THE PLACE.
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:42.140
  • TALK ABOUT INCONVENIENCE.
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:45.230
  • TALK ABOUT BEING INCONVENIENCED.
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:48.230
  • AND PAUL'S IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:07:48.230 --> 00:07:49.160
  • OF THIS STORM,
  • 00:07:49.160 --> 00:07:51.100
  • 276 PRISONERS
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:53.270
  • 'CAUSE HE'S FOLLOWING
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:54.280
  • THE CALL OF GOD ON HIS LIFE.
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:57.240
  • DON'T BE FOOLED.
  • 00:07:57.240 --> 00:08:00.180
  • DON'T BE FOOLED TO THINK
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:01.100
  • THAT WHEN YOU FOLLOW
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:02.100
  • THE CALL OF GOD
  • 00:08:02.100 --> 00:08:03.050
  • THAT EVERYTHING GETS EASY.
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:07.130
  • EVERYTHING DOES NOT GET EASY,
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:12.070
  • IT GETS FULFILLING,
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:14.220
  • IT GETS PURPOSEFUL,
  • 00:08:14.220 --> 00:08:17.090
  • IT GETS JOYFUL,
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:19.250
  • IT GETS PEACEFUL,
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:23.140
  • BUT IT MAY NOT GET EASY.
  • 00:08:23.140 --> 00:08:26.120
  • AND SO PAUL FINDS HIMSELF
  • 00:08:26.120 --> 00:08:27.070
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF A STORM
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:28.020
  • AND GOD SENDS AN ANGEL
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:29.180
  • TO APPEAR FOR HIM.
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:30.090
  • THIS IS IN VERSE 20,
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:31.050
  • CHAPTER 27.
  • 00:08:31.050 --> 00:08:31.150
  • I'M JUST KIND OF GIVING YOU
  • 00:08:31.150 --> 00:08:32.080
  • THE CLIFF NOTES A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:33.080
  • TO GET TO WHAT I WANNA SAY.
  • 00:08:33.080 --> 00:08:35.120
  • GOD SENDS AN ANGEL, SAYS,
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:36.080
  • "HEY, PAUL, DON'T WORRY
  • 00:08:36.080 --> 00:08:37.010
  • ABOUT THIS STORM.
  • 00:08:37.010 --> 00:08:38.010
  • YOU'RE GONNA MAKE IT TO CAESAR."
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:41.150
  • SO HE GETS A WORD, RIGHT?
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:43.200
  • AND THEN HE SAYS
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:44.090
  • THIS IN VERSE --
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:46.250
  • CHAPTER 27:33 SAYS THIS,
  • 00:08:46.250 --> 00:08:48.150
  • "JUST BEFORE DAWN..."
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:49.240
  • SO, IT'S AT NIGHT.
  • 00:08:49.240 --> 00:08:51.040
  • SUN HASN'T COME UP YET.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:53.020
  • "PAUL URGED THEM ALL TO EAT.
  • 00:08:53.020 --> 00:08:55.260
  • 'FOR THE LAST 14 DAYS,'
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:56.260
  • HE SAID, 'YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:57.240
  • IN CONSTANT SUSPENSE
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:08:58.190
  • AND HAVE GONE WITHOUT FOOD.
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:08:59.290
  • YOU HAVEN'T EATEN ANYTHING.'"
  • 00:08:59.290 --> 00:09:01.280
  • SO THEY HAVEN'T EATEN
  • 00:09:01.280 --> 00:09:02.170
  • FOR 14 DAYS.
  • 00:09:02.170 --> 00:09:03.180
  • THEY'VE BEEN SO OVERWHELMED,
  • 00:09:03.180 --> 00:09:04.180
  • SO DISTRAUGHT BY THIS STORM.
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:06.190
  • AND HE SAID, "NOW I URGE YOU
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:08.020
  • TO TAKE SOME FOOD.
  • 00:09:08.020 --> 00:09:09.010
  • YOU NEED IT TO SURVIVE."
  • 00:09:09.010 --> 00:09:10.250
  • LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:11.120
  • "NOT ONE OF YOU WILL LOSE
  • 00:09:11.120 --> 00:09:12.190
  • A SINGLE HAIR FROM HIS HEAD.
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:14.190
  • AND AFTER HE SAID THIS,
  • 00:09:14.190 --> 00:09:15.180
  • HE TOOK SOME BREAD
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:16.100
  • AND HE GAVE THANKS
  • 00:09:16.100 --> 00:09:16.290
  • TO GOD IN FRONT OF THEM.
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:17.270
  • THEN HE BROKE IT,
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:18.250
  • AND HE STARTED EATING."
  • 00:09:18.250 --> 00:09:21.020
  • CRACKS ME UP.
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:23.120
  • THEY WERE ALL ENCOURAGED.
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:25.200
  • WE HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE
  • 00:09:25.200 --> 00:09:26.170
  • THAT THE REST OF --
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:27.120
  • ANY OF THEM WERE BELIEVERS
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:28.080
  • IN JESUS.
  • 00:09:28.080 --> 00:09:30.040
  • BUT PAUL'S ACT OF FAITH
  • 00:09:30.040 --> 00:09:32.180
  • ENCOURAGED THEM ALL
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:34.280
  • AND THEY ATE
  • 00:09:34.280 --> 00:09:35.100
  • SOME FOOD THEMSELVES.
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:38.060
  • SO PAUL'S IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:09:38.060 --> 00:09:38.270
  • OF A STORM AND HE'S HUNGRY.
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:43.040
  • HE'S GOT A WORD
  • 00:09:43.040 --> 00:09:44.060
  • AND HE DECIDES TO EAT.
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:46.180
  • THIS IS INTERESTING TO ME.
  • 00:09:46.180 --> 00:09:48.190
  • PAUL DECIDED TO EAT.
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:50.270
  • HE WAS SO CONVINCED OF THE WORD
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:53.180
  • THAT HE GOT
  • 00:09:53.180 --> 00:09:55.080
  • THAT WHEN EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:09:56.070
  • WAS SO STRESSED OUT
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:09:57.190
  • THAT THEY COULDN'T EAT,
  • 00:09:57.190 --> 00:10:00.080
  • PAUL WAS LIKE
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:01.100
  • I'M GONNA EAT SOME FOOD.
  • 00:10:01.210 --> 00:10:04.210
  • HE BROKE SOME BREAD AND HE ATE.
  • 00:10:04.210 --> 00:10:05.290
  • "AND HIS ACT OF FAITH
  • 00:10:05.290 --> 00:10:07.130
  • ENCOURAGED EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:08.240
  • IN THE BOAT
  • 00:10:08.240 --> 00:10:10.030
  • AND THEY BEGAN TO EAT."
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:11.220
  • LET ME ASK YOU THIS.
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:14.120
  • AS YOU PURSUE THE CALL OF GOD
  • 00:10:14.120 --> 00:10:16.000
  • ON YOUR LIFE
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:17.100
  • AND INCONVENIENCES COME UP,
  • 00:10:17.100 --> 00:10:19.220
  • WHAT ARE YOU FEASTING ON?
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:23.190
  • WHAT'RE YOU FEASTING ON?
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:24.260
  • I WOULD PROPOSE
  • 00:10:24.260 --> 00:10:27.000
  • THAT IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:27.270
  • OF YOUR STORM,
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:29.160
  • GOD HAS A TABLE SPREAD
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:32.090
  • THAT HE WANTS YOU TO FEAST ON,
  • 00:10:32.090 --> 00:10:34.010
  • BUT THE ENEMY ALSO HAS A TABLE
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:36.040
  • THAT IS SPREAD THAT HE WANTS YOU
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:37.070
  • TO FEAST ON.
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.150
  • I KINDA WONDER,
  • 00:10:38.150 --> 00:10:38.290
  • I DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:39.240
  • IF PAUL MAYBE THOUGHT BACK
  • 00:10:39.240 --> 00:10:40.280
  • TO PSALMS 23 WHENEVER DAVID
  • 00:10:40.280 --> 00:10:43.030
  • WROTE THAT: "YOU PREPARE
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:44.080
  • A TABLE BEFORE ME
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:46.020
  • IN THE PRESENCE
  • 00:10:46.020 --> 00:10:46.190
  • OF MINE ENEMIES."
  • 00:10:46.190 --> 00:10:47.280
  • I DON'T THINK
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:48.100
  • IT'S DOING ANYTHING WRONG
  • 00:10:48.100 --> 00:10:49.180
  • TO THE TEXT TO SAY
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:50.220
  • YOU PREPARE A TABLE BEFORE ME
  • 00:10:50.220 --> 00:10:52.160
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF MY STORMS.
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:55.000
  • THAT EITHER IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.020
  • OF THE STORM
  • 00:10:56.020 --> 00:10:56.150
  • I CAN FEAST ON WHAT THE ENEMY
  • 00:10:56.150 --> 00:10:58.070
  • IS WANTING TO GIVE ME
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:10:59.090
  • OR I CAN FEAST ON WHAT GOD
  • 00:10:59.090 --> 00:11:00.240
  • IS WANTING TO GIVE ME,
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:02.110
  • THAT I CAN GET THE WORD
  • 00:11:02.110 --> 00:11:03.210
  • FROM HEAVEN AND BE ABLE
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:05.000
  • TO BREAK BREAD AND EAT BREAD.
  • 00:11:05.000 --> 00:11:07.020
  • 'CAUSE HERE'S THE DEAL,
  • 00:11:07.020 --> 00:11:08.100
  • THE STORM MAY BE RAGING
  • 00:11:08.100 --> 00:11:09.190
  • AROUND ME, BUT THE STORM
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:11.010
  • DOESN'T HAVE TO RAGE IN ME.
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:13.120
  • I CAN BE AT PEACE
  • 00:11:13.120 --> 00:11:14.160
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORM
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:15.240
  • BECAUSE HE PREPARES
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:17.120
  • A TABLE BEFORE ME
  • 00:11:17.120 --> 00:11:18.170
  • AND SURELY GOODNESS
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:20.170
  • AND MERCY WILL FOLLOW ME
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:23.000
  • ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:24.130
  • AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE.
  • 00:11:24.130 --> 00:11:26.100
  • I GOT UP THIS MORNING
  • 00:11:26.100 --> 00:11:27.130
  • KNOWING GOODNESS AND MERCY
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:29.010
  • WERE CHASING ME DOWN THE ROAD
  • 00:11:29.010 --> 00:11:30.250
  • WHILE I MADE MY WAY TO CHURCH.
  • 00:11:30.250 --> 00:11:32.170
  • SO IF HE'S GONNA HAVE GOODNESS
  • 00:11:32.170 --> 00:11:34.120
  • AND MERCY WHILE
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:35.070
  • I'M IN THE HOUSE,
  • 00:11:35.070 --> 00:11:36.080
  • HE WILL HAVE GOODNESS
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:37.260
  • AND MERCY CHASING ME
  • 00:11:37.260 --> 00:11:38.200
  • WHEN I'M OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:40.040
  • WHETHER IT'S PEACE
  • 00:11:40.040 --> 00:11:41.260
  • OR WHETHER IT'S STORM,
  • 00:11:41.260 --> 00:11:44.150
  • GOODNESS AND MERCY
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:45.070
  • ARE FOLLOWING ME
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:47.190
  • BECAUSE HE'S PREPARED
  • 00:11:47.190 --> 00:11:48.110
  • A TABLE BEFORE ME.
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:50.090
  • SEE, TOO MANY OF US,
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:51.060
  • WE FEAST IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:53.040
  • OF THE STORMS ON THE TABLE
  • 00:11:53.040 --> 00:11:54.180
  • THE ENEMY IS SETTING.
  • 00:11:54.180 --> 00:11:57.150
  • THE ENEMY IS SETTING A TABLE
  • 00:11:57.150 --> 00:11:58.240
  • FOR YOU OF DOUBT
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:12:01.080
  • AND YOU'RE LETTING
  • 00:12:01.080 --> 00:12:01.230
  • THAT RUMINATE IN YOUR MIND.
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:04.140
  • RUMINATE MEANS TO LET IT
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:05.250
  • JUST MULL OVER,
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:06.180
  • OVER AND OVER YOU THINK ON IT.
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:07.270
  • THAT'S WHY PAUL SAID,
  • 00:12:07.270 --> 00:12:08.260
  • "WHATEVER THINGS
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:09.160
  • ARE OF GOOD REPORT,
  • 00:12:09.160 --> 00:12:10.120
  • THINK ON THESE THINGS."
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:11.290
  • DON'T LET THOSE THINGS
  • 00:12:11.290 --> 00:12:12.160
  • RUN AROUND IN YOUR MIND,
  • 00:12:12.160 --> 00:12:14.180
  • OVER AND OVER AND OVER
  • 00:12:14.180 --> 00:12:15.260
  • AND OVER IN YOUR MIND
  • 00:12:15.260 --> 00:12:16.210
  • BECAUSE WHEN THE ENEMY
  • 00:12:16.210 --> 00:12:17.190
  • FEEDS YOU DOUBT
  • 00:12:17.190 --> 00:12:18.150
  • AND YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:19.190
  • OF THE STORM AND YOU GO WELL,
  • 00:12:19.190 --> 00:12:20.150
  • I'LL BREAK THE BREAD OF DOUBT
  • 00:12:20.150 --> 00:12:21.180
  • AND I BEGIN TO EAT THAT.
  • 00:12:21.180 --> 00:12:23.010
  • YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:12:23.010 --> 00:12:23.180
  • YOU BEGIN TO NOT BELIEVE
  • 00:12:23.180 --> 00:12:25.000
  • THE WORD OF THE LORD.
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:26.000
  • STRESS COMES UP,
  • 00:12:26.000 --> 00:12:27.060
  • ANXIETY COMES UP,
  • 00:12:27.060 --> 00:12:28.140
  • FEAR COMES UP BECAUSE
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:29.280
  • WE'RE FEASTING ON DOUBT.
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:31.280
  • THE STORM OUTSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:33.270
  • WILL GET INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.150
  • IF YOU FEAST ON
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:36.060
  • WHAT THE ENEMY'S SERVING.
  • 00:12:37.170 --> 00:12:40.170
  • HOW IN THE WORLD DID PAUL
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:41.290
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF A ROCKIN' BOAT,
  • 00:12:43.020 --> 00:12:46.020
  • STORM, PEOPLE FREAKING OUT...
  • 00:12:46.020 --> 00:12:49.020
  • HE'S LIKE I'M GONNA HAVE
  • 00:12:49.020 --> 00:12:49.200
  • SOME BREAD, EAT, HUNGRY.
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:54.010
  • I THINK PAUL WAS LIKE
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:55.020
  • I NEED SOME NOURISHMENT.
  • 00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:55.250
  • I GOT AN ASSIGNMENT.
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.220
  • THIS STORM
  • 00:12:57.220 --> 00:12:58.050
  • ISN'T THE END OF ME.
  • 00:12:58.050 --> 00:13:00.090
  • I MAY BE GOING THROUGH IT,
  • 00:13:00.090 --> 00:13:01.150
  • BUT I'M NOT STAYING IN IT.
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:03.080
  • AND WHATEVER'S
  • 00:13:03.080 --> 00:13:03.180
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:04.100
  • OF THIS STORM,
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:04.280
  • I NEED SOME ENERGY.
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:06.220
  • I'M GONNA EAT
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:07.060
  • SOME CARBS, Y'ALL.
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:08.050
  • I'M GONNA EAT SOME CARBS.
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:12.020
  • PAUL BEGAN TO FEAST
  • 00:13:12.020 --> 00:13:12.190
  • AND HIS ACT OF FAITH
  • 00:13:12.210 --> 00:13:15.210
  • ENCOURAGED EVERYBODY AROUND HIM.
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:19.030
  • EVERYBODY AROUND HIM
  • 00:13:19.030 --> 00:13:19.200
  • WAS ENCOURAGED
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:20.040
  • BECAUSE HIS ACT OF FAITH.
  • 00:13:20.040 --> 00:13:21.060
  • HE GOT THE WORD.
  • 00:13:21.060 --> 00:13:22.110
  • REMINDS ME OF HANNAH, RIGHT?
  • 00:13:22.110 --> 00:13:25.100
  • HANNAH WAS WEEPING,
  • 00:13:25.100 --> 00:13:26.100
  • WANTED A CHILD,
  • 00:13:26.100 --> 00:13:27.140
  • COULDN'T EAT.
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:28.260
  • SAMUEL --
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:29.290
  • ELI GAVE HER A WORD.
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:32.060
  • WHAT'D SHE DO?
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:32.240
  • SAYS SHE --
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:33.200
  • HER COUNTENANCE CHANGED
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:34.120
  • AND SHE WAS HUNGRY.
  • 00:13:34.120 --> 00:13:36.290
  • PHYSIOLOGICALLY,
  • 00:13:36.290 --> 00:13:37.210
  • THE WORD AFFECTED HER BODY
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:40.170
  • 'CAUSE SHE GOT THE WORD.
  • 00:13:40.170 --> 00:13:42.190
  • CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING?
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:43.100
  • THIS IS WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:44.130
  • FOR YOU TO KNOW YOUR CALLING.
  • 00:13:44.250 --> 00:13:47.250
  • IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR YOU
  • 00:13:47.250 --> 00:13:48.290
  • TO KNOW YOUR CALLING.
  • 00:13:48.290 --> 00:13:51.120
  • PAUL UNDERSTOOD THAT ALTHOUGH
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:52.270
  • THE STORM WAS GREAT,
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:54.220
  • THE WORD FROM GOD AND THE CALL
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:56.230
  • WAS I'M GOING TO SEE CAESAR.
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:59.200
  • THIS ISN'T MY FINAL DESTINATION.
  • 00:13:59.200 --> 00:14:02.100
  • ROME IS MY FINAL DESTINATION.
  • 00:14:02.100 --> 00:14:04.100
  • SO IF I'M IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:14:04.100 --> 00:14:05.120
  • OF A STORM AND IT AIN'T ROME,
  • 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:07.080
  • IT AIN'T MY FINAL DESTINATION.
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:09.060
  • I'M NOT GONNA STAY HERE FOREVER.
  • 00:14:09.060 --> 00:14:11.070
  • YOU ONLY GET STUCK THERE FOREVER
  • 00:14:11.070 --> 00:14:13.020
  • WHEN YOU BEGIN TO FEAST
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:15.050
  • ON WHAT THE ENEMY
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:15.220
  • IS FEEDING YOU AND YOU FIND
  • 00:14:15.220 --> 00:14:17.010
  • YOURSELF JUST ROAMING AROUND,
  • 00:14:17.010 --> 00:14:18.190
  • AROUND, AROUND, AROUND
  • 00:14:18.190 --> 00:14:20.100
  • IN THE SAME THING
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:21.050
  • OVER AND OVER AND OVER,
  • 00:14:21.050 --> 00:14:23.010
  • BUT THAT IS NOT GOD
  • 00:14:23.010 --> 00:14:24.030
  • HAS DESTINED FOR YOU,
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:25.160
  • IT IS NOT WHAT GOD
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:26.110
  • HAS PURPOSED FOR YOU.
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:28.260
  • YOU GOTTA DETERMINE
  • 00:14:28.260 --> 00:14:29.110
  • WHAT YOU'RE GONNA FEAST ON.
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:32.000
  • IF YOU WANNA FULFIL
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:32.160
  • THE CALL OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:14:32.160 --> 00:14:34.090
  • YOU CAN'T ALLOW MOMENTS
  • 00:14:34.090 --> 00:14:36.060
  • IN A STORM TO GET YOU
  • 00:14:36.060 --> 00:14:37.240
  • TO HAVE A BAD SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:40.010
  • YOU KEEP A SWEET SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:40.010 --> 00:14:41.060
  • I'M GONNA KEEP A JOYFUL SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:41.060 --> 00:14:42.210
  • I CAN'T CONTROL EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:14:42.210 --> 00:14:44.020
  • I CONTROL MY SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:44.020 --> 00:14:45.040
  • I CONTROL IF I WAKE UP
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:46.250
  • AND PUT A SMILE ON MY FACE
  • 00:14:46.250 --> 00:14:47.230
  • AND HAVE JOY.
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:48.210
  • I'M JUST NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:49.170
  • THE POWER OF POSITIVE.
  • 00:14:49.170 --> 00:14:51.110
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT IN THE --
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:53.010
  • WITH THE AUTHORITY OF JESUS,
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:54.030
  • I'M GONNA KEEP A SWEET SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:54.030 --> 00:14:56.290
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
  • 00:14:56.290 --> 00:14:57.210
  • A SWEET SPIRIT
  • 00:14:57.210 --> 00:14:58.080
  • CAN ENDURE A STORM,
  • 00:14:58.080 --> 00:15:00.070
  • BUT WHO CAN BEAR
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:00.220
  • A BROKEN SPIRIT?
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:02.170
  • A BROKEN SPIRIT
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:03.040
  • WILL KEEP YOU IN THE STORM.
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:06.080
  • A SWEET SPIRIT CAN ENDURE.
  • 00:15:06.080 --> 00:15:08.150
  • IT CAN ENDURE A STORM.
  • 00:15:08.150 --> 00:15:10.200
  • YOU GOTTA --
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:11.160
  • IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.110
  • YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:13.110
  • AND SO THEY START EATING,
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:16.240
  • AND THE BIBLE
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:18.210
  • GOES ONTO TELL US IN ACTS 27
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.060
  • THAT THEY FIND THEMSELVES --
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:22.220
  • THEY BASICALLY RUN THE SHIP
  • 00:15:22.220 --> 00:15:24.160
  • INTO A SANDBAR AND CRASH IT.
  • 00:15:25.060 --> 00:15:28.060
  • THEY BREAK IT APART.
  • 00:15:28.060 --> 00:15:29.050
  • IT'S A WOODEN SHIP.
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:30.010
  • IT'S NOT LIKE A VESSEL
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:30.200
  • LIKE WE WOULD HAVE TODAY.
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:31.140
  • IT'S A WOODEN SHIP.
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:32.060
  • AND SO THEY BASICALLY BREAK IT
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:33.210
  • APART AND THE SOLDIERS DECIDE
  • 00:15:33.210 --> 00:15:36.120
  • WE'RE GONNA KILL
  • 00:15:36.120 --> 00:15:36.270
  • ALL THE PRISONERS.
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:39.060
  • THAT'S THE PLAN.
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:39.250
  • WE CAN'T CONTAIN 'EM ALL,
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:41.000
  • SO WE'RE GONNA KILL 'EM ALL.
  • 00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:42.140
  • AND PAUL TALKS THEM
  • 00:15:42.140 --> 00:15:44.010
  • INTO NOT DOING THAT.
  • 00:15:44.010 --> 00:15:45.120
  • IT'S LIKE HEY,
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:45.260
  • THAT'S NOT THE BEST IDEA.
  • 00:15:45.260 --> 00:15:47.040
  • LET'S LET EVERYBODY SWIM
  • 00:15:47.040 --> 00:15:48.150
  • TO THE SHORE
  • 00:15:48.150 --> 00:15:49.090
  • BECAUSE THEY'VE COME
  • 00:15:49.090 --> 00:15:50.050
  • UPON THIS ISLAND.
  • 00:15:50.140 --> 00:15:53.140
  • AND SO VERSE 1 OF CHAPTER 28
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:56.260
  • TELLS US THIS.
  • 00:15:56.260 --> 00:15:57.250
  • IT SAYS, "ONCE THEY ARRIVED
  • 00:15:57.250 --> 00:15:58.290
  • SAFELY ON SHORE,"
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.080
  • IT SAYS THAT,
  • 00:16:00.080 --> 00:16:01.070
  • "WE FOUND OUT THAT THE ISLAND
  • 00:16:01.070 --> 00:16:02.230
  • WAS CALLED MALTA."
  • 00:16:02.230 --> 00:16:04.110
  • SOMEBODY SAY, "MALTA."
  • 00:16:04.110 --> 00:16:06.070
  • "AND THE ISLANDERS
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:07.060
  • SHOWED US UNUSUAL KINDNESS."
  • 00:16:07.180 --> 00:16:10.180
  • I THINK THAT OUGHTA
  • 00:16:10.180 --> 00:16:11.070
  • BE THE TESTIMONY OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:13.250
  • I CAN'T CONTROL EVERY CHURCH.
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:15.170
  • CAN'T REALLY CONTROL THIS ONE,
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:17.110
  • INFLUENCE THIS ONE.
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:20.190
  • BUT I THINK
  • 00:16:20.190 --> 00:16:21.140
  • WHEN PEOPLE WALK IN,
  • 00:16:21.140 --> 00:16:22.160
  • IT SHOULD BE LIKE
  • 00:16:22.160 --> 00:16:23.040
  • UNUSUAL KINDNESS.
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:24.290
  • THEY SHOULD
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:25.090
  • JUST ENCOUNTER PEOPLE
  • 00:16:25.090 --> 00:16:26.000
  • THAT ARE LIKE --
  • 00:16:26.000 --> 00:16:26.180
  • HAVE YOU EVER MET SOMEBODY
  • 00:16:26.180 --> 00:16:27.100
  • THAT'S SO KIND THAT YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:28.110
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT?
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:30.100
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:34.070
  • AND THEN THERE'S NO STRINGS
  • 00:16:34.070 --> 00:16:35.040
  • ATTACHED AND YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:38.220
  • YOU SURE, WELL.
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:39.240
  • TAKES YOU A LITTLE BIT, RIGHT?
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:41.000
  • I THINK PEOPLE OUGHTA WALK IN
  • 00:16:41.000 --> 00:16:41.250
  • AND BE LIKE WHAT DO THEY WANT?
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:43.200
  • BE LIKE WE DON'T WANT ANYTHING.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:45.050
  • JUST UNUSUAL KINDNESS.
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:47.080
  • I THINK THAT
  • 00:16:47.080 --> 00:16:47.220
  • OUGHTA BE OUR TESTIMONY.
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:48.270
  • IT SAYS, "THEY BUILT A FIRE
  • 00:16:48.270 --> 00:16:50.040
  • AND THEY WELCOMED US ALL
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:51.050
  • BECAUSE IT WAS RAINING AND COLD.
  • 00:16:51.050 --> 00:16:53.190
  • AND PAUL, HE GATHERED
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:55.050
  • A PILE OF BRUSHWOOD AND,
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:56.220
  • AS HE PUT IT ON THE FIRE,
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:16:58.050
  • A VIPER, DRIVEN OUT BY THE HEAT,
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:01.220
  • FASTENED ITSELF ON HIS HAND."
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:05.270
  • SO IT'S RAINING
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:06.260
  • AND IT'S COLD,
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.090
  • PAUL'S SHIPWRECKED,
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:09.260
  • AND NOW HE'S GETTING BITTEN
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:10.180
  • BY A SNAKE.
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:12.230
  • IT'S A GOOD DAY,
  • 00:17:12.230 --> 00:17:13.110
  • RIGHT, FOR PAUL.
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:15.080
  • STELLAR MOMENT.
  • 00:17:15.080 --> 00:17:16.280
  • HE'S GATHERING BRUSH
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:18.010
  • AND HE'S HELPING BUILD THE FIRE.
  • 00:17:18.010 --> 00:17:19.080
  • WHY IS HE BUILDING A FIRE?
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.020
  • 'CAUSE IT'S COLD
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:20.250
  • AND IT'S RAINING AND EVERYBODY
  • 00:17:20.250 --> 00:17:22.060
  • BENEFITS FROM THE HEAT.
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:24.030
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:24.190
  • AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE --
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:25.130
  • NOT LIKE THEY HAD HOUSES THERE.
  • 00:17:25.130 --> 00:17:27.060
  • THEY WERE SHIPWRECKED,
  • 00:17:27.060 --> 00:17:28.100
  • 276 OF 'EM,
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:30.100
  • PLUS SOLDIERS, SHIPWRECKED.
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:32.170
  • SO PAUL'S BUILDING A FIRE,
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:34.030
  • MINISTERING TO THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:35.100
  • HIS MINISTRY --
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:36.260
  • HIS MINISTRY IS BUILDING
  • 00:17:36.260 --> 00:17:38.100
  • THE FIRE, RIGHT?
  • 00:17:38.100 --> 00:17:40.260
  • ISN'T IT AMAZING GOD
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:41.120
  • CAN USE EVERYBODY?
  • 00:17:41.120 --> 00:17:42.090
  • DO WHATEVER YOU WANT --
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:43.060
  • DO WHATEVER IT IS THAT GOD'S
  • 00:17:43.060 --> 00:17:44.000
  • PUT IN YOUR HAND TO DO.
  • 00:17:44.000 --> 00:17:45.130
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:46.010
  • AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:46.180
  • PAUL WASN'T PREACHING GOSPEL,
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:47.200
  • BUT HE'S MINISTERING TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:47.200 --> 00:17:48.130
  • HE'S SERVING.
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:49.010
  • THE WORD MINISTRY MEANS SERVE.
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:50.260
  • HE WAS SERVING
  • 00:17:50.260 --> 00:17:51.130
  • BY BUILDING A FIRE.
  • 00:17:51.130 --> 00:17:52.280
  • HOW MANY KNOW SOMETIMES
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:53.130
  • YOU NEED TO MEET SOMEBODY'S
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:54.130
  • PRACTICAL NEED BEFORE YOU MEET
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:55.170
  • THEIR SPIRITUAL NEED?
  • 00:17:55.170 --> 00:17:57.040
  • SO PAUL WAS JUST BUILDING
  • 00:17:57.040 --> 00:17:57.220
  • A FIRE, MEETING THEIR NEED.
  • 00:17:57.220 --> 00:17:59.080
  • AND BECAUSE HE WAS BUILDING
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:03.160
  • A FIRE, WATCH THIS,
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:05.160
  • A VIPER CAME OUT AND BIT HIM.
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:09.270
  • SO BECAUSE HE WAS DOING
  • 00:18:09.270 --> 00:18:11.060
  • HIS MINISTRY, HE GOT BIT.
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:16.000
  • HIS MINISTRY WAS TURNING
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:17.190
  • THE HEAT UP AND BECAUSE
  • 00:18:17.190 --> 00:18:20.030
  • THE HEAT GOT TURNED UP,
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:21.290
  • THE VIPER CAME OUT AND BIT HIM.
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:27.010
  • HIS MINISTRY
  • 00:18:27.010 --> 00:18:27.200
  • WAS TURNING THE HEAT UP.
  • 00:18:27.240 --> 00:18:30.240
  • CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING,
  • 00:18:30.240 --> 00:18:31.210
  • THAT WHEN YOU BEGIN TO PURSUE
  • 00:18:31.210 --> 00:18:33.010
  • THE CALL OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:18:33.010 --> 00:18:34.120
  • IT WILL TURN THE HEAT UP
  • 00:18:34.120 --> 00:18:37.100
  • ON THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:40.140
  • AND WHEN YOU DO,
  • 00:18:40.140 --> 00:18:41.110
  • DON'T BE SURPRISED
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:41.270
  • IF THE VIPERS COME OUT.
  • 00:18:42.050 --> 00:18:45.050
  • SEE, I THINK THIS.
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:46.000
  • I THINK THAT THE ENEMY
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:47.250
  • IS MORE CONVINCED
  • 00:18:47.250 --> 00:18:48.210
  • OF YOUR CALLING THAN YOU ARE.
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:54.130
  • I THINK THE ENEMY
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:54.290
  • IS MORE CONVINCED
  • 00:18:54.290 --> 00:18:55.230
  • OF YOUR CALLING THAN YOU ARE.
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:57.040
  • THE REASON IS,
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.040
  • IS BECAUSE IF HE WASN'T
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:19:00.020
  • SO CONVINCED OF THE CALL
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:01.130
  • OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:02.010
  • HE WOULDN'T FIGHT YOU SO HARD.
  • 00:19:02.160 --> 00:19:05.160
  • AND I DON'T THINK
  • 00:19:09.280 --> 00:19:10.180
  • THAT YOU'RE AS CONVINCED
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:11.210
  • AS HE IS BECAUSE IF YOU WERE,
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:13.080
  • YOU WOULDN'T QUIT SO EASY.
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:16.130
  • PAUL TURNED UP THE HEAT,
  • 00:19:16.130 --> 00:19:17.180
  • AND WHEN HE TURNED UP THE HEAT,
  • 00:19:17.180 --> 00:19:19.040
  • THE VIPERS CAME OUT OF THE FIRE.
  • 00:19:19.040 --> 00:19:21.070
  • IT WAS HIS MINISTRY
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:23.020
  • THAT CAUSED THE VIPERS
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:24.230
  • TO COME OUT.
  • 00:19:24.230 --> 00:19:25.200
  • I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:26.170
  • THAT WHEN YOU BEGIN TO TURN UP
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:28.200
  • THE HEAT OF YOUR MINISTRY
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:30.010
  • THAT THE FORCES OF DARKNESS
  • 00:19:30.010 --> 00:19:32.030
  • WILL TAKE NOTICE
  • 00:19:32.030 --> 00:19:34.050
  • AND THE VIPERS WILL COME OUT.
  • 00:19:34.050 --> 00:19:36.290
  • NOW DON'T WORRY
  • 00:19:36.290 --> 00:19:37.240
  • BECAUSE THE VIPERS
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:38.160
  • CAN'T HURT YOU.
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:40.220
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:41.260
  • THE VIPER MAYBE SCARY,
  • 00:19:41.260 --> 00:19:43.270
  • BUT GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:46.170
  • THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD
  • 00:19:46.170 --> 00:19:48.190
  • SO I DON'T LIVE IN FEAR,
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:49.290
  • I DON'T LIVE IN DOUBT,
  • 00:19:49.290 --> 00:19:51.220
  • I DON'T LIVE RECOILING BACK,
  • 00:19:51.220 --> 00:19:54.110
  • BUT I DO LIVE AWARE
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:56.150
  • THAT AS I TURN UP THE HEAT
  • 00:19:56.150 --> 00:19:58.000
  • OF MY MINISTRY,
  • 00:19:58.000 --> 00:19:58.270
  • AS I PURSUE THE CALL OF GOD,
  • 00:19:58.270 --> 00:20:00.220
  • AS I STAY FOCUSED ON THE THING
  • 00:20:00.220 --> 00:20:02.150
  • THAT GOD HAS FOR ME,
  • 00:20:02.150 --> 00:20:04.000
  • I AM VERY AWARE
  • 00:20:04.000 --> 00:20:05.030
  • THAT IS TURNING UP
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.120
  • THE HEAT ON THE KINGDOM
  • 00:20:06.120 --> 00:20:08.030
  • OF DARKNESS AND THE VIPERS
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:09.100
  • WILL COME OUT.
  • 00:20:09.100 --> 00:20:11.230
  • YOU KNOW THIS.
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:12.090
  • YOU START LIVING FOR GOD
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:14.200
  • AND PURSUING GOD
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:15.220
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN CRITICISM,
  • 00:20:15.220 --> 00:20:17.110
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:18.010
  • "OH, OH, YOU'RE AT THAT CHURCH
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:19.040

  • WHAT YOU --

  • HANG ANYMORE."
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:24.100
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:20:24.100 --> 00:20:25.260
  • CRITICISM COMES OUT.
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:27.090
  • THE VIPERS COME OUT.
  • 00:20:27.090 --> 00:20:28.070
  • THEY WANNA ATTACH YOU.
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:29.040
  • "OH, YOU HOLY ROLLER NOW.

  • HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:35.190
  • YOU MEAN YOU'RE GIVING AS WELL?
  • 00:20:35.190 --> 00:20:38.140

  • LIKE THAT'S A NICE LITTLE
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:41.210
  • THING TO DO, BUT NOW

  • YOU'RE GIVING FINANCES TOO.
  • 00:20:43.030 --> 00:20:45.050
  • HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?"
  • 00:20:45.050 --> 00:20:47.010
  • THE VIPERS
  • 00:20:47.010 --> 00:20:47.200
  • WILL COME OUT AFTER --
  • 00:20:47.200 --> 00:20:49.130
  • I'M JUST TELLING YOU.
  • 00:20:49.130 --> 00:20:50.230
  • YOU BEGIN TO GO, "OKAY, GOD,
  • 00:20:50.230 --> 00:20:51.180
  • I'M GONNA GO ALL IN.
  • 00:20:51.180 --> 00:20:52.130
  • I'M GONNA PURSUE
  • 00:20:52.130 --> 00:20:52.290
  • WHAT YOU HAVE FOR ME.
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:53.230
  • I'M GONNA ANSWER THE CALL.
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:55.010
  • I'M GONNA TAKE
  • 00:20:55.010 --> 00:20:55.140
  • THESE STEPS OF FAITH.
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:56.050
  • I'M GONNA DO THIS, GOD.
  • 00:20:56.050 --> 00:20:57.080
  • I DON'T FEEL EQUIPPED.
  • 00:20:57.080 --> 00:20:58.210
  • I DON'T FEEL LIKE..."
  • 00:20:58.210 --> 00:20:59.250
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:00.140
  • THE VIPER
  • 00:21:00.140 --> 00:21:00.260
  • OF INSECURITY WILL COME UP.
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:02.050
  • HERE'S A VIPER THAT I THINK
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:02.280
  • MAYBE WE ALL FACE
  • 00:21:02.280 --> 00:21:03.290
  • IS THE ONE OF THAT REMINDS YOU
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:07.150
  • OF ALL YOUR PAST.
  • 00:21:07.230 --> 00:21:10.230
  • "YOU THINK GOD COULD USE YOU?
  • 00:21:11.110 --> 00:21:14.110
  • YOU THINK GOD COULD USE YOU?
  • 00:21:14.110 --> 00:21:15.070
  • YOU STILL GOT A TEMPER.
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:16.140
  • HOW'S GOD GONNA USE YOU
  • 00:21:16.140 --> 00:21:17.050
  • WITH THAT TEMPER YOU GOT?"
  • 00:21:17.050 --> 00:21:20.030
  • THE VIPERS WILL BEGIN
  • 00:21:20.030 --> 00:21:20.220
  • TO REMIND YOU OF EVERYTHING
  • 00:21:20.220 --> 00:21:22.150
  • YOU'RE NOT AND TRY
  • 00:21:22.150 --> 00:21:25.070
  • TO GET YOU OFF FOCUS
  • 00:21:25.070 --> 00:21:26.090
  • OF THE CALL OF GOD
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:27.070
  • THAT HE HAS ON YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:27.070 --> 00:21:29.270
  • AND YOU'VE GOTTA STAY FOCUSED.
  • 00:21:29.270 --> 00:21:32.070
  • YOU'VE GOT A WORD.
  • 00:21:32.070 --> 00:21:33.000
  • GOD SAID, "PAUL,
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:35.120
  • YOU'RE GOING TO ROME.
  • 00:21:35.150 --> 00:21:38.150
  • PAUL YOU'RE GOING TO ROME."
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:40.240
  • SO IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:21:40.240 --> 00:21:41.280
  • IF THERE WAS A VIPER
  • 00:21:41.280 --> 00:21:42.160
  • ON HIM OR NOT,
  • 00:21:42.160 --> 00:21:43.120
  • PAUL WAS GOING TO ROME.
  • 00:21:43.190 --> 00:21:46.190
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:21:46.190 --> 00:21:48.090
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT I'M CONCERNED
  • 00:21:48.090 --> 00:21:49.040
  • FOR MANY OF US
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:49.250
  • IS THAT THROUGHOUT LIFE
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:51.050
  • WE'VE ALLOWED DIFFERENT VIPERS
  • 00:21:51.050 --> 00:21:52.180
  • TO COME AND ATTACH THEMSELVES
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.000
  • TO US AND INSTEAD OF DOING
  • 00:21:54.000 --> 00:21:55.190
  • WHAT PAUL WOULD DO
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:56.180
  • AND THAT IS SHAKE IT OFF,
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:21:57.180
  • WE'VE ALLOWED THEIR VENOM
  • 00:21:57.180 --> 00:21:58.260
  • TO GET INTO OUR SYSTEM.
  • 00:21:58.260 --> 00:22:01.260
  • AND SO, NOW WE DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:22:01.260 --> 00:22:03.060
  • WHY THINGS AREN'T GOING OUR WAY
  • 00:22:03.060 --> 00:22:04.210
  • AND IT COULD BE
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:05.080
  • BECAUSE THE VENOM
  • 00:22:05.080 --> 00:22:06.030
  • OF THE VIPERS.
  • 00:22:06.030 --> 00:22:07.110
  • INSTEAD OF JUST SHAKING IT OFF,
  • 00:22:07.110 --> 00:22:08.260
  • WE ALLOWED BITTERNESS
  • 00:22:08.260 --> 00:22:09.290
  • AND THAT VENOM GOT IN US.
  • 00:22:09.290 --> 00:22:12.020
  • WE ALLOWED OFFENSE
  • 00:22:12.020 --> 00:22:12.270
  • TO GET IN US.
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:13.230
  • BUT SOMEBODY
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:14.080
  • DIDN'T RECOGNIZE ME
  • 00:22:14.080 --> 00:22:14.280
  • AND SOMEBODY DIDN'T TALK TO ME
  • 00:22:14.280 --> 00:22:16.130
  • AND SOMEBODY DIDN'T
  • 00:22:16.130 --> 00:22:17.120
  • AND THEY HURT MY FEELINGS.
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:18.050
  • AND I'M NOT DOWNPLAYING
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:19.100
  • ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:19.290
  • I GET IT.
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:20.130
  • I GET IT.
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:20.270
  • IT'S HURTFUL.
  • 00:22:20.270 --> 00:22:21.150
  • BUT I'M JUST SAYING HOW LONG
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:22.270
  • ARE YOU GONNA ALLOW
  • 00:22:22.270 --> 00:22:24.000
  • THOSE EXPERIENCES TO KEEP YOU
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:25.130
  • FROM BECOMING EVERYTHING
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:26.270
  • THAT GOD WANTS YOU TO BE?
  • 00:22:26.270 --> 00:22:28.220
  • HOW LONG ARE YOU GONNA DO THAT?
  • 00:22:28.220 --> 00:22:30.260
  • IT SAYS, VERSE 4,
  • 00:22:30.260 --> 00:22:31.170
  • "WHEN THE ISLAND
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:32.110
  • SAW THE SNAKE HANGING
  • 00:22:32.110 --> 00:22:33.110
  • ON HIS HAND,
  • 00:22:33.110 --> 00:22:34.030
  • THEY SAID TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:22:34.030 --> 00:22:34.260
  • 'THIS MAN MUST BE A MURDERER
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:36.060
  • FOR THOUGH HE ESCAPED
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:37.020
  • FROM THE SEA,
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:38.010
  • JUSTICE HAS NOT ALLOWED HIM
  • 00:22:38.010 --> 00:22:38.260
  • TO LIVE."
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:39.180
  • HERE'S WHAT YOU GOTTA KNOW.
  • 00:22:39.180 --> 00:22:40.210
  • THEY HAD A SUPERSTITION
  • 00:22:40.210 --> 00:22:41.240
  • THAT IF YOU WERE REALLY GUILTY
  • 00:22:41.240 --> 00:22:43.230
  • OF SOMETHING THAT JUSTICE,
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:45.060
  • THE SPIRIT OF JUSTICE,
  • 00:22:45.060 --> 00:22:46.110
  • WOULD MAKE SURE
  • 00:22:46.110 --> 00:22:46.290
  • THAT YOU PAID THE PENALTY.
  • 00:22:46.290 --> 00:22:48.100
  • AND SO THEIR THOUGHT
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:49.080
  • WAS THE SHIPWRECK
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:50.090
  • DIDN'T KILL HIM
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:51.120
  • SO HE MUST REALLY BE A MURDERER
  • 00:22:51.120 --> 00:22:52.260
  • SO NOW THE SNAKE
  • 00:22:52.260 --> 00:22:54.080
  • IS GONNA GET HIM.
  • 00:22:54.160 --> 00:22:57.160
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:22:57.160 --> 00:22:58.040
  • AND SO THEN THEY SAID THIS
  • 00:22:58.040 --> 00:22:58.290
  • IN VERSE 5 AND 6,
  • 00:22:58.290 --> 00:23:00.090
  • "BUT PAUL SHOOK THE SNAKE OFF
  • 00:23:00.090 --> 00:23:02.040
  • INTO THE FIRE
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:03.020
  • AND SUFFERED NO ILL EFFECT.
  • 00:23:03.020 --> 00:23:04.200
  • AND THE PEOPLE EXPECTED HIM
  • 00:23:04.200 --> 00:23:06.100
  • TO SWELL UP SUDDENLY
  • 00:23:06.100 --> 00:23:07.250
  • OR FALL DEAD,
  • 00:23:07.250 --> 00:23:08.080
  • BUT AFTER WAITING
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:09.050
  • A LONG TIME..."
  • 00:23:09.050 --> 00:23:11.290
  • A POCKET --
  • 00:23:22.060 --> 00:23:22.220
  • IS HE DEAD YET?
  • 00:23:27.190 --> 00:23:30.190
  • "AFTER WAITING A LONG TIME
  • 00:23:30.190 --> 00:23:32.060
  • AND SEEING NOTHING
  • 00:23:32.060 --> 00:23:33.050
  • UNUSUAL HAPPEN TO HIM,
  • 00:23:33.050 --> 00:23:34.210
  • THEY CHANGED THEIR MINDS
  • 00:23:34.210 --> 00:23:35.250
  • AND SAID HE WAS A GOD."
  • 00:23:35.250 --> 00:23:36.260
  • YOU CANNOT LIVE YOUR CALLING
  • 00:23:36.260 --> 00:23:39.240
  • BY THE OPINION OF OTHERS
  • 00:23:39.240 --> 00:23:41.190
  • 'CAUSE ONE MOMENT
  • 00:23:41.190 --> 00:23:42.070
  • THEY WILL SAY YOU'RE A GOD
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:43.090
  • AND THE NEXT MOMENT
  • 00:23:43.090 --> 00:23:44.020
  • THEY WILL SAY YOU'RE A DEVIL.
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:45.140
  • YOU'VE GOTTA LIVE
  • 00:23:45.140 --> 00:23:46.190
  • YOUR CALLING ACCORDING

  • TO WHAT GOD HAS SAID.
  • 00:23:48.110 --> 00:23:51.110
  • BUT IT SAID THIS,
  • 00:23:51.110 --> 00:23:51.270
  • "BUT PAUL SHOOK THE SNAKE OFF
  • 00:23:51.270 --> 00:23:53.070

  • NO ILL EFFECTS."
  • 00:23:54.230 --> 00:23:57.200
  • I'M NOT DOWNPLAYING

  • WHATEVER IT IS
  • 00:23:58.160 --> 00:24:00.080
  • THAT YOU WENT THROUGH,
  • 00:24:00.080 --> 00:24:01.230
  • I'M JUST SAYING
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:02.110
  • HOW LONG ARE YOU GONNA ALLOW IT
  • 00:24:02.110 --> 00:24:03.200
  • TO STAY ATTACHED TO YOU?
  • 00:24:03.200 --> 00:24:05.090
  • THERE'S GOTTA --

  • SOME MOMENT
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:06.180
  • WHERE YOU SHAKE IT OFF
  • 00:24:06.180 --> 00:24:08.240
  • BECAUSE HERE'S THE DEAL,
  • 00:24:08.240 --> 00:24:09.170
  • YOU CAN'T NEGOTIATE WITH VIPERS.
  • 00:24:10.220 --> 00:24:13.220
  • YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN TO THE VIPER

  • WHY YOU'RE DOING
  • 00:24:15.040 --> 00:24:16.030
  • WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

  • 00:24:35.270 --> 00:24:36.280
  • DEALT WITH IT.
  • 00:24:36.280 --> 00:24:37.240
  • HE SHOOK THE SNAKE OFF
  • 00:24:37.240 --> 00:24:39.080
  • BACK INTO THE FIRE.
  • 00:24:39.080 --> 00:24:40.240
  • SO HOW DO YOU DEAL
  • 00:24:40.240 --> 00:24:41.170
  • WITH VIPERS?
  • 00:24:41.170 --> 00:24:42.130
  • YOU DON'T NEGOTIATE WITH THEM,
  • 00:24:42.130 --> 00:24:44.090
  • YOU JUST KEEP TURNING UP
  • 00:24:44.090 --> 00:24:45.180
  • THE HEAT OF THE THING
  • 00:24:45.180 --> 00:24:46.290
  • GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:24:47.190 --> 00:24:50.190
  • YOU JUST GOTTA STAY FOCUSED
  • 00:24:50.190 --> 00:24:53.030
  • ON WHAT GOD CALLED YOU TO BUILD.
  • 00:24:53.030 --> 00:24:55.220
  • YOU GOTTA STAY INTENT
  • 00:24:55.220 --> 00:24:57.120
  • ON WHAT GOD'S CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:24:59.080 --> 00:25:02.100
  • SO THE BIBLE TELLS US --
  • 00:25:02.100 --> 00:25:03.070
  • STAY WITH ME FOR A MOMENT.
  • 00:25:03.070 --> 00:25:05.060
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US
  • 00:25:05.060 --> 00:25:08.000
  • THAT AFTER THAT,
  • 00:25:08.000 --> 00:25:09.260
  • THE CHIEF
  • 00:25:09.260 --> 00:25:11.040
  • OF THE WHOLE ISLAND
  • 00:25:11.040 --> 00:25:12.060
  • CAME AND GOT PAUL,
  • 00:25:12.060 --> 00:25:15.030
  • BRING HIM TO OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:25:15.030 --> 00:25:16.010
  • SNAKES DON'T KILL THIS GUY.
  • 00:25:16.010 --> 00:25:17.060
  • I WANNA HANG OUT WITH HIM.
  • 00:25:19.000 --> 00:25:22.000
  • TELLING YOU,
  • 00:25:22.000 --> 00:25:22.140
  • WHEN YOU PURSUE
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:23.040
  • GOD'S CALL ON YOUR LIFE
  • 00:25:23.040 --> 00:25:24.080
  • AND YOU STAY FOCUSED,
  • 00:25:24.080 --> 00:25:24.290
  • GOD WILL OPEN DOORS
  • 00:25:24.290 --> 00:25:25.200
  • FOR YOU THAT NO MAN CAN OPEN.
  • 00:25:25.200 --> 00:25:28.070
  • HE'LL PUT YOU IN SEATS
  • 00:25:28.070 --> 00:25:29.270
  • AND CIRCLES...
  • 00:25:29.270 --> 00:25:30.220
  • YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF
  • 00:25:30.220 --> 00:25:31.130
  • ON PLATFORMS AND IN ROOMS
  • 00:25:31.130 --> 00:25:33.020
  • YOU NEVER THOUGHT
  • 00:25:33.020 --> 00:25:33.200
  • YOU WOULD BE IN.
  • 00:25:34.130 --> 00:25:37.130
  • COME TO FIND OUT, THE CHIEF,
  • 00:25:40.040 --> 00:25:41.090
  • HIS DAD WAS SICK...
  • 00:25:41.090 --> 00:25:44.080
  • AND PAUL WENT IN AND LAID
  • 00:25:44.080 --> 00:25:46.000
  • HANDS ON HIM AND HEALED HIM.
  • 00:25:46.080 --> 00:25:49.080
  • AND WHEN THEY FOUND OUT
  • 00:25:49.080 --> 00:25:49.270
  • THAT THIS MAN
  • 00:25:49.270 --> 00:25:50.130
  • COULD HEAL THE SICK,
  • 00:25:50.130 --> 00:25:51.110
  • THEY BROUGHT THE WHOLE ISLAND
  • 00:25:51.110 --> 00:25:52.280
  • TO HIM, ALL THE SICK
  • 00:25:52.280 --> 00:25:53.180
  • ON THE ISLAND CAME TO HIM.
  • 00:25:53.180 --> 00:25:54.270
  • HE LAID HANDS ON THEM
  • 00:25:54.270 --> 00:25:56.010
  • AND THE WHOLE ISLAND
  • 00:25:56.010 --> 00:25:56.220
  • WAS HEALED OF THEIR SICKNESS.
  • 00:25:59.090 --> 00:26:02.110
  • SEE, PAUL WAS ON HIS WAY
  • 00:26:02.110 --> 00:26:04.010
  • TO ROME, BUT WHAT LOOKED LIKE
  • 00:26:04.120 --> 00:26:07.120
  • AN INCONVENIENCE
  • 00:26:07.120 --> 00:26:08.160
  • WAS A STOP AT MALTA.
  • 00:26:08.160 --> 00:26:11.040
  • BUT MALTA WOULD BE THE PLACE
  • 00:26:11.040 --> 00:26:12.150
  • OF THE GREATEST MIRACLE
  • 00:26:12.150 --> 00:26:14.260
  • IN THE MINISTRY OF PAUL.
  • 00:26:14.260 --> 00:26:17.220
  • SO I JUST CAME TO DECLARE
  • 00:26:17.220 --> 00:26:19.010
  • TO SOMEBODY TODAY
  • 00:26:19.010 --> 00:26:20.080
  • THAT THE INCONVENIENCE
  • 00:26:20.080 --> 00:26:21.240
  • YOU'RE WALKING THROUGH
  • 00:26:21.240 --> 00:26:22.180
  • ISN'T AN INCONVENIENCE,
  • 00:26:22.180 --> 00:26:24.060

  • TO ROME AND YOU WILL EVENTUALLY
  • 00:26:28.210 --> 00:26:30.130
  • GET TO ROME,
  • 00:26:30.130 --> 00:26:31.140
  • BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO STOP
  • 00:26:31.140 --> 00:26:32.250
  • AT MALTA BECAUSE AT MALTA,
  • 00:26:32.250 --> 00:26:35.060

  • "GOD, WHAT'RE YOU DOING TO ME?
  • 00:27:36.120 --> 00:27:38.040
  • WHY I'M ON THIS SHIP?
  • 00:27:38.040 --> 00:27:38.270
