  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: WHENEVER
  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:14.050
  • IT COMES TO THE TOPIC
  • 00:00:14.050 --> 00:00:14.250
  • OF "WORDS,"
  • 00:00:14.250 --> 00:00:15.100
  • PEOPLE MIGHT WANT TO KNOW,
  • 00:00:15.100 --> 00:00:15.290
  • WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS SUBJECT?
  • 00:00:15.290 --> 00:00:18.210
  • AND THE REASON IS VERY SIMPLE,
  • 00:00:18.210 --> 00:00:20.030
  • BECAUSE WHETHER YOU KNOW IT
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:21.010
  • OR NOT,
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:21.230
  • YOUR WORDS ARE VERY POWERFUL.
  • 00:00:21.230 --> 00:00:24.200
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:00:24.200 --> 00:00:26.010
  • PROVERBS 18:21, IT SAYS,
  • 00:00:26.010 --> 00:00:27.260
  • "THE POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH
  • 00:00:27.280 --> 00:00:30.280
  • ARE IN THE TONGUE."
  • 00:00:30.280 --> 00:00:32.210
  • NOTICE HOW EXTREME
  • 00:00:32.210 --> 00:00:33.220
  • THOSE TWO POSITIONS ARE.
  • 00:00:33.220 --> 00:00:35.130
  • GOD DIDN'T SAY THAT THERE'S
  • 00:00:35.130 --> 00:00:36.090
  • A LITTLE BIT OF GOOD IN YOUR
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:37.190
  • SPEECH AND THERE'S A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:38.230
  • OF BAD IN YOUR SPEECH.
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:40.020
  • HE DIDN'T SAY THERE'S A LITTLE
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:40.270
  • SWEET, SOUR, SASSY AND SINCERE.
  • 00:00:41.150 --> 00:00:44.150
  • HE SAID YOU'VE GOT ONE OF
  • 00:00:44.150 --> 00:00:45.130
  • TWO THINGS THAT ARE COMING OUT
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:46.190
  • OF YOUR MOUTH.
  • 00:00:46.190 --> 00:00:47.120
  • ONE IS LIFE AND THE OTHER
  • 00:00:47.120 --> 00:00:48.230
  • IS EXTREMELY DIFFERENT,
  • 00:00:48.230 --> 00:00:50.200
  • AND THAT'S DEATH,
  • 00:00:50.200 --> 00:00:52.100
  • AND BOTH ARE IN THE POWER OF
  • 00:00:52.100 --> 00:00:54.010
  • THE TONGUE.
  • 00:00:54.010 --> 00:00:55.070
  • HOW MANY DREAMS HAVE BEEN
  • 00:00:55.070 --> 00:00:56.230
  • BIRTHED BY WORDS OF INSPIRATION
  • 00:00:56.230 --> 00:00:59.010
  • AND HOPE?
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:00.070
  • AND LIKEWISE,
  • 00:01:00.070 --> 00:01:01.000
  • HOW MANY HAVE BEEN ABANDONED
  • 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:02.270
  • BECAUSE OF STATEMENTS THAT HAVE
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:04.140
  • DESTROYED THE THINGS THAT YOU
  • 00:01:04.140 --> 00:01:07.000
  • DESIRE IN YOUR HEART?
  • 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:09.010
  • WORDS LIKE,
  • 00:01:09.010 --> 00:01:09.200
  • "I BELIEVE IN YOU"
  • 00:01:09.200 --> 00:01:11.100
  • AND "YOU CAN DO IT;"
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:12.270
  • REMINDERS THAT
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:13.220
  • "ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
  • 00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:15.030
  • THROUGH CHRIST;"
  • 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:16.130
  • STATEMENTS LIKE,
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.020
  • "GOD IS ABLE TO GIVE YOU
  • 00:01:17.020 --> 00:01:18.270
  • EXCEEDINGLY AND ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:20.120
  • ABOVE ALL YOU COULD ASK,
  • 00:01:20.120 --> 00:01:21.260
  • THINK OR IMAGINE."
  • 00:01:21.260 --> 00:01:22.220
  • THESE ARE WORDS THAT GIVE LIFE
  • 00:01:22.220 --> 00:01:25.020
  • TO YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.280
  • AND LIKEWISE,
  • 00:01:26.280 --> 00:01:27.190
  • WE CAN ASSASSINATE A DREAM
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:29.170
  • AND DESTROY A DESTINY
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:31.210
  • WITH SIMPLE STATEMENTS LIKE,
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:32.190
  • "I DON'T THINK SO"
  • 00:01:32.190 --> 00:01:34.120
  • AND "YOU'LL NEVER"
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:36.070
  • OR "I DOUBT IT."
  • 00:01:36.070 --> 00:01:38.180
  • NOT ONLY ARE WORDS POWERFUL,
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:40.090
  • BUT WORDS ARE WHERE FAITH
  • 00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:42.150
  • COMES FROM.
  • 00:01:42.150 --> 00:01:44.150
  • AND TODAY WE HAVE TO ASK
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:45.100
  • OURSELVES;
  • 00:01:45.100 --> 00:01:46.040
  • WHAT FAITH ARE WE BUILDING?
  • 00:01:46.040 --> 00:01:48.170
  • IF YOU LISTEN TO THE WORD
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:50.050
  • OF GOD,
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:50.230
  • YOU ARE BUILDING FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:01:50.230 --> 00:01:52.230
  • IF YOU LISTEN TO THE WORDS
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:54.000
  • OF MAN,
  • 00:01:54.000 --> 00:01:54.260
  • YOU CAN BUILD FAITH IN A LOT
  • 00:01:54.260 --> 00:01:56.130
  • OF THINGS,
  • 00:01:56.130 --> 00:01:57.070
  • BUT NONE OF THEM ARE GUARANTEED
  • 00:01:57.070 --> 00:01:59.060
  • TO WORK LIKE GOD'S WORD DOES.
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:02.030
  • TODAY I BELIEVE THAT THROUGH
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:03.100
  • THE POWER OF HIS WORD
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:05.070
  • AND WITH THE INSPIRATION
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:06.100
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:02:06.100 --> 00:02:07.170
  • I'LL PRAYERFULLY GET YOU
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:09.040
  • TO FOCUS ON WORDS THAT WORK
  • 00:02:09.040 --> 00:02:11.150
  • AND FORGET THE STATEMENTS
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:13.150
  • THAT DON'T.
  • 00:02:13.150 --> 00:02:15.080
  • IF YOU FOUND ISAIAH 55:11,
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:17.140
  • SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:02:17.140 --> 00:02:18.130
  • [Amen.]
  • 00:02:18.130 --> 00:02:18.270
  • LET'S READ TOGETHER.
  • 00:02:18.270 --> 00:02:20.090
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.180
  • "SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOES
  • 00:02:21.180 --> 00:02:24.130
  • FORTH FROM MY MOUTH.
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:26.200
  • IT SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME VOID.
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:30.000
  • BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:31.200
  • WHAT I PLEASE,
  • 00:02:31.200 --> 00:02:33.060
  • AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN
  • 00:02:33.060 --> 00:02:35.060
  • THE THING FOR WHICH I SENT IT."
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:38.070
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:02:38.070 --> 00:02:39.250
  • LET YOUR WORD COME ALIVE IN US
  • 00:02:39.250 --> 00:02:42.090
  • TODAY.
  • 00:02:42.090 --> 00:02:43.120
  • LET IT BUILD FAITH
  • 00:02:43.120 --> 00:02:44.210
  • IN YOUR PROMISES,
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:45.230
  • AND THOSE PROMISES BE PERFORMED
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:47.250
  • THAT WE MIGHT KNOW THAT
  • 00:02:47.250 --> 00:02:49.230
  • THE HAND OF THE LIVING GOD
  • 00:02:49.230 --> 00:02:51.010
  • IS ON OUR LIVES.
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:52.260
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:02:52.260 --> 00:02:53.280
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.030
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:55.030 --> 00:02:56.030
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:56.290
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:02.160
  • WORDS ARE POWERFUL.
  • 00:03:02.160 --> 00:03:04.080
  • WORDS BUILD FAITH.
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:06.110
  • WHEN YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:07.280
  • YOU FIND THIS WRITTEN
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:09.090
  • IN ROMANS 10:17.
  • 00:03:09.090 --> 00:03:10.240
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:11.180
  • "FAITH COMETH BY HEARING."
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:13.210
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:14.230
  • FAITH COMETH BY HEARING.
  • 00:03:14.230 --> 00:03:17.210
  • AND THEN IT GOES ON TO MAKE IT
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:18.240
  • VERY CLEAR THAT HEARING
  • 00:03:18.240 --> 00:03:20.190
  • COMES FROM THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:22.260
  • SO IF WHAT YOU WANT TO BUILD
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:24.040
  • IS FAITH IN GOD,
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:25.180
  • THEN YOU MUST HEAR THE WORD
  • 00:03:25.180 --> 00:03:27.070
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:29.020
  • NOW WHEN YOU DON'T HEAR
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:30.060
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:31.140
  • THOSE WORDS ARE STILL BUILDING
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:33.030
  • FAITH.
  • 00:03:33.030 --> 00:03:33.260
  • BUT THE QUESTION IS, IN WHAT?
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:37.060
  • IF YOU LISTEN TO THE WORDS
  • 00:03:37.060 --> 00:03:38.070
  • AND THE STATEMENTS OF MEN,
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:39.240
  • YOU OFTEN TIMES ARE BUILDING
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:41.100
  • FAITH IN FEAR, FAITH IN DOUBT,
  • 00:03:41.190 --> 00:03:44.190
  • FAITH IN DESPAIR.
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:47.020
  • WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU STAYED
  • 00:03:47.020 --> 00:03:48.120
  • UP TO WATCH THE NEWS,
  • 00:03:48.120 --> 00:03:49.170
  • AND AFTER YOU SAW THE LEAD-IN
  • 00:03:49.170 --> 00:03:50.220
  • STORY, YOU TOLD YOURSELF,
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:52.070
  • "WOW, IT'S A WONDERFUL WORLD"?
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:55.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:55.280 --> 00:03:58.280
  • WHETHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT
  • 00:03:58.280 --> 00:04:00.020
  • THE WORDS THAT YOU'RE HEARING
  • 00:04:00.020 --> 00:04:01.200
  • ARE BUILDING SOMETHING,
  • 00:04:01.200 --> 00:04:03.030
  • THE QUESTION IS: WHAT WILL BE
  • 00:04:03.030 --> 00:04:04.180
  • THE OUTCOME OF WHAT THEY BUILD?
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:07.180
  • IT'S NOT WHETHER OR NOT WORDS
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:09.000
  • ARE HAVING AN AFFECT ON YOU.
  • 00:04:09.000 --> 00:04:11.090
  • IT'S A MATTER OF THE RESULT
  • 00:04:11.090 --> 00:04:12.210
  • OF THE AFFECT THAT THEY HAVE.
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:15.090
  • WHEN YOU HEAR GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:16.240
  • IT BUILDS FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:18.160
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID,
  • 00:04:18.160 --> 00:04:19.270
  • "HAVE FAITH IN GOD."
  • 00:04:20.190 --> 00:04:23.190
  • GOD'S WORD BUILDS FAITH
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:25.050
  • THAT GIVES LIFE TO YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.230
  • GOD'S WORD BUILDS FAITH THAT
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:28.170
  • GIVES STRENGTH TO YOUR BODY.
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:30.020
  • GOD'S WORD BUILDS A HEDGE
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:31.230
  • OF PROTECTION THAT BRINGS YOU
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:33.060
  • PEACE OF MIND.
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:34.090
  • GOD'S WORD GIVES YOU FAITH THAT
  • 00:04:34.090 --> 00:04:36.010
  • WILL ALLOW YOU TO CARRY ON
  • 00:04:36.010 --> 00:04:37.280
  • WHEN OTHERS ARE THINKING
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:38.250
  • ABOUT QUITTING.
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:39.260
  • GOD'S WORD GIVES YOU STRENGTH
  • 00:04:39.260 --> 00:04:41.140
  • TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP WHEN YOU
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:42.250
  • THINK THE HILL IS TOO HARD
  • 00:04:42.250 --> 00:04:44.030
  • TO CLIMB.
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:45.010
  • GOD'S WORD GIVES YOU THE FAITH
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:46.200
  • THAT,
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:47.080
  • AS YOU WALK THROUGH LIFE
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.080
  • AND YOU LOOK AT MOUNTAINS
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:49.070
  • OF IMPOSSIBILITY,
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:50.180
  • REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:51.250
  • A FINANCIAL IMPOSSIBILITY
  • 00:04:51.250 --> 00:04:53.170
  • OR A SPIRITUAL IMPOSSIBILITY
  • 00:04:53.170 --> 00:04:55.190
  • OR A PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY,
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:57.180
  • YOU HAVE THE PROPER FAITH
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:59.160
  • TO SAY TO THAT MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:04:59.160 --> 00:05:00.260
  • "BE THOU REMOVED AND CAST
  • 00:05:00.260 --> 00:05:02.210
  • INTO THE MIDST OF THE SEA."
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:04.040
  • GOD'S WORD BUILDS THE KIND
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:05.200
  • OF FAITH THAT SEES STORM CLOUDS
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:07.200
  • ON THE HORIZON AND KNOWS THAT MY
  • 00:05:07.200 --> 00:05:10.020
  • GOD RIDES ON THE WINGS
  • 00:05:10.020 --> 00:05:11.200
  • OF THE STORM
  • 00:05:11.200 --> 00:05:12.200
  • AND HE BRINGS ME AN ANSWER
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:14.070
  • IN MY HOUR OF NEED.
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:15.250
  • HE PREPARES A TABLE BEFORE ME
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:17.190
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:19.150
  • HE PROMISES ME THE BEST
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:21.000
  • OF THINGS IN THE WORST OF TIMES.
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:22.280
  • GOD'S WORD BUILDS THE KIND
  • 00:05:22.280 --> 00:05:24.170
  • OF FAITH THAT SAYS,
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:25.120
  • I CAN BE PRESSED ON EVERY SIDE;
  • 00:05:25.120 --> 00:05:27.180
  • AND YET,
  • 00:05:27.180 --> 00:05:28.030
  • FILLED WITH CONFIDENCE
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:29.140
  • THAT IF GOD BE FOR ME,
  • 00:05:29.140 --> 00:05:31.220
  • WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME?
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:35.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:41.120
  • THAT KIND OF FAITH COMES WHEN
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:42.270
  • YOU HEAR THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:46.060
  • AND HEARING THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:47.170
  • GIVES YOU THE KIND OF FAITH TO
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:48.260
  • LOOK AT THE WORLD AND THE FLESH
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:50.080
  • AND THE DEVIL,
  • 00:05:50.080 --> 00:05:51.040
  • AND DECLARE THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:52.090
  • MORE THAN A CONQUEROR
  • 00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:54.010
  • THROUGH CHRIST.
  • 00:05:54.010 --> 00:05:55.270
  • BUT WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR LIFE
  • 00:05:55.270 --> 00:05:57.050
  • WHEN YOU'RE SATURATED
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:58.070
  • BY THE STATEMENTS OF MEN?
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:06:01.130
  • WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT MORE
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:02.250
  • FAITH AND DEPENDENCY IN THEIR
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:04.270
  • WISDOM THAN YOU DO GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:06:05.150 --> 00:06:08.150
  • YOU SEE THERE'S A WORD THAT
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:09.220
  • WORKS AND THERE'S STATEMENTS
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:11.210
  • THAT DON'T.
  • 00:06:11.210 --> 00:06:13.230
  • I DON'T CARE HOW WISE THE
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.090
  • INDIVIDUAL YOU'RE TALKING TO
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:17.030
  • TRULY IS.
  • 00:06:17.030 --> 00:06:18.020
  • HE'S NOT WISER THAN GOD.
  • 00:06:20.090 --> 00:06:23.090
  • NOW THERE ARE A LOT OF TRUISMS
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:24.180
  • THAT WE'VE LEARNED AND A LOT
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.050
  • OF STATEMENTS THAT WE'VE
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:27.020
  • MEMORIZED.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:27.230
  • AND SOMETIMES WE ACTUALLY
  • 00:06:27.230 --> 00:06:29.080
  • CONFUSE THE STATEMENTS OF MEN
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:30.250
  • WITH THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:06:30.250 --> 00:06:31.260
  • BECAUSE WE START SAYING THINGS
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:32.260
  • LIKE,
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:33.160
  • "DOESN'T THE BIBLE SAY THAT
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:34.260
  • A BIRD IN THE HAND IS BETTER
  • 00:06:34.260 --> 00:06:36.100
  • THAN TWO IN THE BUSH?"
  • 00:06:36.100 --> 00:06:38.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:38.160 --> 00:06:39.210
  • NO.
  • 00:06:39.210 --> 00:06:41.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:41.150 --> 00:06:42.230
  • AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:43.150
  • THAT STATEMENT MIGHT BE TRUE
  • 00:06:43.150 --> 00:06:44.210
  • SOMETIMES,
  • 00:06:44.210 --> 00:06:45.160
  • BUT IT'S NOT TRUE ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:47.290
  • IF THE BIRD IN YOUR HAND IS A
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:49.230
  • BUZZARD AND THE TWO IN THE BUSH
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:50.280
  • ARE CHICKENS,
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:51.170
  • GET RID OF THE BUZZARD
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:52.120
  • AND GO GET THE CHICKENS.
  • 00:06:52.120 --> 00:06:54.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:58.220
  • THE PROBLEM WITH OUR LIFE
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:07:01.050
  • IS THAT WE DON'T RECOGNIZE
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:02.200
  • THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE POWER
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:04.020
  • OF GOD'S WORD AND THE EMPTINESS
  • 00:07:04.020 --> 00:07:06.240
  • OF MAN'S STATEMENTS.
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:09.010
  • BUT WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:10.010
  • IS THAT GOD'S WORD
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:11.040
  • IS ALWAYS WORKING.
  • 00:07:11.180 --> 00:07:14.180
  • GOD'S WORD IS WORKING.
  • 00:07:14.180 --> 00:07:17.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:18.090
  • GOD'S WORD IS WORKING.
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:21.030
  • TURN TO SOMEBODY AND TELL THEM,
  • 00:07:21.030 --> 00:07:22.230
  • "GOD'S WORD IS WORKING."
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:25.160
  • [God's word is working.]
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:28.220
  • NOW WHAT DO I MEAN BY
  • 00:07:28.220 --> 00:07:29.250
  • "IT'S WORKING"?
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:31.190
  • ON WALL STREET,
  • 00:07:31.190 --> 00:07:32.200
  • THEY HAVE A STATEMENT THAT
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:33.170
  • "MONEY NEVER SLEEPS."
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:35.270
  • AND THE REASON THAT THEY DON'T
  • 00:07:35.270 --> 00:07:36.200
  • WANT MONEY TO EVER SLEEP;
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:38.040
  • THEY WANT IT TO CONSTANTLY BE
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.100
  • EARNING SOMETHING.
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.150
  • THE WORK DAY AT WALL STREET
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:41.270
  • MIGHT BE FROM SUNUP TO SUNDOWN,
  • 00:07:41.270 --> 00:07:43.220
  • BUT WHEN NIGHT TIME COMES,
  • 00:07:43.220 --> 00:07:45.000
  • THEY INVEST THEIR MONEY
  • 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:46.040
  • IN ANOTHER MARKET IN THE WORLD
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:47.180
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT ALL OF
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:48.280
  • THAT WEALTH JUST SITTING THERE;
  • 00:07:48.280 --> 00:07:51.070
  • THEY WANT IT PRODUCING
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.060
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:07:52.060 --> 00:07:53.170
  • THEIR OBJECTIVE IS
  • 00:07:53.170 --> 00:07:54.190
  • TO CONSTANTLY MAKE MONEY.
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:56.190
  • THEY WANT VALUE TO BE ADDED TO
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:58.260
  • EVERYTHING THAT THEY HAVE.
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:00.280
  • AND IN LIKE FASHION,
  • 00:08:00.280 --> 00:08:02.000
  • THOSE PRINCIPLES ARE TRUE WHEN
  • 00:08:02.000 --> 00:08:03.150
  • IT COMES TO GOD'S WORD WORKING
  • 00:08:03.150 --> 00:08:05.210
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:07.290
  • YOU MIGHT HAVE A DAY
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:09.020
  • THAT STARTS AT SUNUP
  • 00:08:09.020 --> 00:08:10.000
  • AND ENDS AT SUNDOWN,
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.080
  • BUT GOD'S WORD NEVER SLEEPS.
  • 00:08:11.080 --> 00:08:13.090
  • IT'S CONSTANTLY WORKING
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.290
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:16.160
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:17.030
  • BECAUSE JUST LIKE THE GUYS
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:18.080
  • ON WALL STREET SEE SOMETHING
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:19.180
  • THAT THEY WANT TO INVEST IN,
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:21.040
  • GOD WANTS TO INVEST IN YOU.
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:24.150
  • HE WANTS TO INVEST IN YOU
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:25.160
  • SO MUCH;
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:26.060
  • HE SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:28.060
  • THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE EVERLASTING
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:29.160
  • LIFE.
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:31.020
  • HIS WORD IS WORKING.
  • 00:08:31.110 --> 00:08:34.110
  • AND THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:08:34.110 --> 00:08:35.100
  • THAT ADD VALUE TO AN INVESTMENT.
  • 00:08:35.100 --> 00:08:37.220
  • FIRST, YOU HAVE TO INVEST
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:38.290
  • IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
  • 00:08:38.290 --> 00:08:40.030
  • YOU JUST CAN'T INVEST
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:41.030
  • IN ANYTHING.
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:41.210
  • YOU HAVE TO INVEST IN SOMETHING
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:43.000
  • THAT'S WORTH SOMETHING.
  • 00:08:43.000 --> 00:08:44.220
  • THE SECOND THING THAT HAS
  • 00:08:44.220 --> 00:08:45.180
  • TO HAPPEN IS THOSE THAT YOU'VE
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:46.260
  • INVESTED IN HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:08:46.260 --> 00:08:48.100
  • RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:49.100
  • WITH THAT INVESTMENT.
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:50.040
  • THEY CAN'T JUST SIT IDLE.
  • 00:08:50.040 --> 00:08:51.140
  • THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TO PUT
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:52.180
  • EFFORT WITH THE INVESTMENT
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:54.090
  • SO THAT IT GAINS VALUE.
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:56.160
  • BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:57.150
  • THE INVESTORS ON WALL STREET
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:58.220
  • ARE GOING TO GO TO THE
  • 00:08:58.220 --> 00:08:59.110
  • COMPANIES THAT THEY'VE INVESTED
  • 00:08:59.110 --> 00:09:00.170
  • IN,
  • 00:09:00.170 --> 00:09:01.050
  • AND THEY WANT A RETURN ON
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:03.070
  • THE INVESTMENT.
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:05.020
  • IN LIKE FASHION,
  • 00:09:05.020 --> 00:09:06.100
  • GOD LOOKS AT YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:07.250
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:07.250 --> 00:09:08.130
  • YOU ARE WORTH SOMETHING TO ME.
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:11.000
  • "YOU ARE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE"
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.160
  • IS THE WAY THAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:09:12.160 --> 00:09:13.160
  • IT.
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:14.020
  • IN ISAIAH 55, GOD SAID,
  • 00:09:14.020 --> 00:09:16.090
  • IF I INVEST MY WORD IN YOU,
  • 00:09:16.090 --> 00:09:18.150
  • IT'S NOT GOING TO RETURN VOID.
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:20.100
  • I'M PUTTING SOMETHING IN YOU
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:21.290
  • THAT IS GOING TO GAIN VALUE.
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:23.200
  • BUT WE ALSO READ IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:25.060
  • THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS --
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:26.190
  • WHAT?
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:27.180
  • [Dead.]
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:28.220
  • SO WHEN GOD PUTS HIS WORD IN
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:30.010
  • YOU, YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:32.010
  • YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE THAT WORD
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:33.170
  • AND SIT IDLE.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:34.170
  • YOU'VE GOT TO PUT THE WORD
  • 00:09:34.170 --> 00:09:35.190
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:37.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE ACTION BASED
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.130
  • ON WHAT YOU'VE HEARD,
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:40.190
  • BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:09:40.190 --> 00:09:41.220
  • GOD IS GOING TO COME CHECK
  • 00:09:41.220 --> 00:09:43.020
  • ON WHAT HE'S INVESTED IN YOU.
  • 00:09:43.020 --> 00:09:44.290
  • AND HE EXPECTS A RETURN
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:47.050
  • ON INVESTMENT.
  • 00:09:47.050 --> 00:09:49.110
  • HE WANTS TO SEE GROWTH
  • 00:09:49.110 --> 00:09:51.020
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:53.030
  • YOU SEE THE PROBLEM IS NOT
  • 00:09:53.030 --> 00:09:54.060
  • GETTING GOD'S WORD TO WORK.
  • 00:09:54.060 --> 00:09:56.090
  • THE PROBLEM IS GETTING US
  • 00:09:56.090 --> 00:09:57.200
  • TO BELIEVE THAT IT'S WORKING.
  • 00:09:58.000 --> 00:10:01.000
  • OFTEN TIMES,
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:01.220
  • WE GO TO CHURCH AND WE GET
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:02.280
  • TO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:04.130
  • AND WE GET TO HEAR IT AND KNOW
  • 00:10:04.130 --> 00:10:05.250
  • THAT IT IS ALIVE AND POWERFUL.
  • 00:10:05.250 --> 00:10:07.270
  • BUT THEN WE WALK OUT
  • 00:10:07.270 --> 00:10:09.030
  • AND WE WONDER,
  • 00:10:09.030 --> 00:10:09.280
  • WHAT CAN GOD'S WORD DO FOR ME.
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:13.020
  • WHY?
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:14.160
  • BECAUSE WE'VE TAKEN GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:16.120
  • AND RATHER THAN HOLD IT
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:17.060
  • AS THE STANDARD OF ALL TRUTH,
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:18.220
  • WE'VE COMPARED IT WITH OTHER
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:19.290
  • TRUISMS AND THE STATEMENTS
  • 00:10:19.290 --> 00:10:22.240
  • OF MEN.
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:24.200
  • AND MOST OF THE TIME,
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:25.130
  • WE'RE TRYING TO SURVIVE
  • 00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:26.150
  • ON MAN'S STATEMENTS THAN WE ARE
  • 00:10:26.150 --> 00:10:28.010
  • STAND ON GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:10:28.070 --> 00:10:31.070
  • MOST OF THE TIME WE WOULD
  • 00:10:31.070 --> 00:10:32.030
  • RATHER PUT OUR HOPE IN THE
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:33.180
  • WISDOM OF MAN RATHER THAN BUILD
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.290
  • ON THE SOLID ROCK
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:36.290
  • THAT IS CERTAIN IN ALL TIMES.
  • 00:10:37.110 --> 00:10:40.110
  • WE LISTEN TO THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:41.250
  • AND WE LEAVE WONDERING;
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:43.050
  • WHAT CAN GOD DO WITH THE
  • 00:10:43.050 --> 00:10:44.080
  • SITUATION THAT I WALKED IN
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:45.190
  • WITH?
  • 00:10:45.190 --> 00:10:47.260
  • AND THAT'S BECAUSE WE EITHER
  • 00:10:47.260 --> 00:10:48.290
  • DON'T KNOW OR WE DON'T BELIEVE.
  • 00:10:49.030 --> 00:10:52.030
  • BUT IT DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT;
  • 00:10:52.030 --> 00:10:53.160
  • GOD'S WORD IS WORKING.
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:56.120
  • WHY IS GOD'S WORD WORKING?

  • GOD'S WORD IS WORKING,
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:11:00.080
  • ONE, BECAUSE IT'S HIS WORD

  • AND ALSO IN THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:14:06.280 --> 00:14:08.060
  • PETER SPEAKING.
  • 00:14:08.060 --> 00:14:09.030
  • HE SAYS, "THE GRASS WITHERS,
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:10.110
  • AND THE FLOWER MAY FADE,

  • YOU KNOW THAT WHEN I WAS A KID,

  • I WAS SCARED OF THE DARK.
  • 00:14:34.230 --> 00:14:37.210
  • YOU PUT ME IN A DARK ROOM,
  • 00:14:37.210 --> 00:14:38.220
  • I'D LIGHT THAT THING UP LIKE

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:42.210 --> 00:14:43.200

  • SCARED OF THE DARK.
  • 00:14:44.200 --> 00:14:46.220
  • I WAS THE KID THAT USED TO LOVE

  • TO PLAY OUTSIDE.
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:48.290
  • AND THE REASON I LIKE TO PLAY
  • 00:14:48.290 --> 00:14:49.280
  • OUTSIDE IS BECAUSE WE DIDN'T
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:51.160
  • HAVE 486.000 TELEVISION CHANNELS
  • 00:14:51.160 --> 00:14:54.100
  • TO WATCH.
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:57.250
  • AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE ROOM
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:14:59.020
  • IN THE HOUSE THAT HAD A TV.
  • 00:14:59.020 --> 00:15:01.040

  • NOW YOU JUST COHABITATE,
  • 00:15:07.230 --> 00:15:09.010
  • BUT THERE USED TO BE A PLACE
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:10.200
  • WHERE EVERYBODY GATHERED.
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:11.240
  • AND IN THAT ROOM WAS
  • 00:15:11.240 --> 00:15:13.030
  • DAD'S CHAIR.
  • 00:15:13.030 --> 00:15:15.240
  • HOW MANY OF Y'ALL KNEW
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:16.140

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:18.250 --> 00:15:19.220

  • THERE FOR A BIT.
  • 00:15:20.160 --> 00:15:21.190
  • BUT IF DAD WALKED IN THE ROOM,
  • 00:15:21.190 --> 00:15:23.030
  • WHAT DID YOU DO?
  • 00:15:23.030 --> 00:15:24.050
  • GET OUT OF THE CHAIR.
  • 00:15:24.170 --> 00:15:27.170
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)

  • TO DO THAT,
  • 00:15:41.150 --> 00:15:42.030
  • BECAUSE BACK THEN WE WERE

  • THAT LED INTO THE FAMILY ROOM.
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:21.270

  • "THE SUN'S GONE DOWN."
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:38.040
  • I SAID, "YEAH, I KNOW."
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:38.220
  • I SAID, "BUT I'M GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:39.160
  • IN THE BACKYARD."

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:45.220 --> 00:16:47.200

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:54.200 --> 00:16:55.080
  • BUT HE WAS GOING TO USE OTHER

  • PERSUASIVE TACTICS TO KEEP ME
  • 00:16:56.020 --> 00:16:57.220
  • FROM CAUSING HIM TO HAVE
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:58.280

  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:17:04.080 --> 00:17:05.070
  • HE SAID,

  • THAT I HADN'T BEEN AFRAID
  • 00:18:45.100 --> 00:18:46.070
  • OF THE DARK IN WEEKS NOW.

  • NOW FOR THE LANGUAGE
  • 00:19:20.080 --> 00:19:21.080

  • IS FREE INDEED.

  • YOU DO NOT GET TO OPT OUT
  • 00:20:15.190 --> 00:20:17.160
  • OF THE FIGHT.
  • 00:20:17.160 --> 00:20:19.220
  • AND WHENEVER YOU BEGIN TO LIVE

  • THAT IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE,

  • ARE NOT.
  • 00:20:27.200 --> 00:20:29.210
  • YOU CAN'T GO TO THE DEVIL
  • 00:20:29.210 --> 00:20:30.230
  • AND SAY, "YOLO."
  • 00:20:30.230 --> 00:20:32.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:33.170 --> 00:20:36.170
  • BUT YOU CAN GO TO HIM

  • WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:38.230
  • AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO SPEAK IT,
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:40.160
  • HE BEGINS TO RELEASE THE THINGS
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:42.030
  • THAT HE'S WITHHOLDING FROM YOU.
  • 00:20:42.100 --> 00:20:45.100
  • IT'S ALIVE.
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:46.050
  • IT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:20:46.050 --> 00:20:47.090
  • IT'S SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:48.240
  • SWORD.
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:49.110
  • CONSIDER JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:20:49.110 --> 00:20:50.220
  • THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER
  • 00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:51.250
  • OF OUR FAITH.
  • 00:20:51.250 --> 00:20:53.120
  • WHEN HE WAS ON THE EARTH,
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:20:54.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE WAS
  • 00:20:54.160 --> 00:20:55.200
  • IN TEMPTATION,
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:20:57.010
  • AND THE DEVIL CAME TO HIM
  • 00:20:57.010 --> 00:20:58.130
  • AT THE END OF HIS FAST.
  • 00:20:58.130 --> 00:21:00.060
  • AND WHAT HE DID WAS HE CAUSED
  • 00:21:00.060 --> 00:21:01.270
  • THE SON OF GOD TO QUESTION
  • 00:21:01.270 --> 00:21:03.200
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:21:03.200 --> 00:21:05.120
  • IF SATAN DID THAT WITH JESUS,
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:07.090
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HE'LL DO
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:08.150
  • WITH YOU.
  • 00:21:08.150 --> 00:21:10.170
  • HE'S DOING IT WITH SOME OF YOU
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:11.220
  • RIGHT NOW, ASKING YOU,
  • 00:21:11.220 --> 00:21:14.200
  • "IS THAT PREACHER TELLING
  • 00:21:14.200 --> 00:21:15.180
  • THE TRUTH OR NOT?"
  • 00:21:15.180 --> 00:21:18.150
  • HERE'S HOW IT WENT WITH JESUS.
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:20.020
  • HE FASTED FOR 40 DAYS.
  • 00:21:20.020 --> 00:21:21.240
  • AND HE WALKED UP TO HIM,
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:22.240
  • AND HE SAID, "IF --"
  • 00:21:22.240 --> 00:21:24.090
  • SAY THAT WITH ME, IF.
  • 00:21:24.090 --> 00:21:26.190
  • "IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD --"
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:29.200
  • (IF YOU REALLY THINK YOU ARE
  • 00:21:29.200 --> 00:21:30.240
  • THAT GOOD;
  • 00:21:30.240 --> 00:21:32.210
  • I KNOW YOU'RE HUNGRY).
  • 00:21:32.210 --> 00:21:33.160
  • "-- TURN THOSE STONES
  • 00:21:33.160 --> 00:21:34.110
  • INTO BREAD."
  • 00:21:34.110 --> 00:21:36.130
  • JESUS DIDN'T BEGIN TO
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:37.160
  • DEBATE WITH HIM THAT HE WAS
  • 00:21:37.160 --> 00:21:39.030
  • THERE IN GENESIS WHEN CREATION
  • 00:21:39.030 --> 00:21:40.210
  • BEGAN.
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:41.070
  • HE DIDN'T DEBATE WITH HIM THAT
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:42.210
  • HE WAS THE ONE THAT GOD HAD
  • 00:21:42.210 --> 00:21:44.030
  • USED THROUGHOUT ALL OF CREATION
  • 00:21:44.030 --> 00:21:46.020
  • UNTIL HE CAME TO BETHLEHEM.
  • 00:21:46.020 --> 00:21:47.140
  • HE DIDN'T DEBATE WITH HIM.
  • 00:21:47.140 --> 00:21:48.240
  • HE JUST LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:50.070
  • "IT IS WRITTEN."
  • 00:21:50.120 --> 00:21:53.120
  • HE SPOKE THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:21:53.120 --> 00:21:56.080
  • THE NEXT TEMPTATION CAME.
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:57.170
  • "IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD..."
  • 00:21:57.170 --> 00:21:59.000
  • HE SPOKE THE WORD.
  • 00:21:59.000 --> 00:22:00.100
  • "IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD..."
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:01.240
  • HE SPOKE THE WORD.
  • 00:22:01.240 --> 00:22:03.060
  • AND FINALLY, HE SAID,
  • 00:22:03.060 --> 00:22:04.140
  • "AWAY WITH YOU SATAN."
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:05.280
  • AND SATAN WAS DRIVEN OUT
  • 00:22:05.280 --> 00:22:07.160
  • OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:22:07.160 --> 00:22:09.140
  • IF THAT'S HOW IT WENT FOR JESUS,
  • 00:22:09.140 --> 00:22:11.090

  • 00:22:11.090 --> 00:22:12.030
  • TO HAVE TO LEARN TO DO.
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:14.000
  • WHENEVER THE ENEMY COMES
  • 00:22:14.000 --> 00:22:15.020
  • AGAINST YOU LIKE A FLOOD,
  • 00:22:15.020 --> 00:22:16.200
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE LORD
  • 00:22:16.200 --> 00:22:17.290
  • WILL RAISE A STANDARD
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:18.240
  • AGAINST IT.
  • 00:22:18.240 --> 00:22:19.210
  • THIS IS THAT STANDARD.
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:21.250
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO START DRIVING
  • 00:22:21.250 --> 00:22:23.190
  • THE ENEMY OUT OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:25.070
  • BY SPEAKING THE WORD.

  • WHEN HE TRIES TO COME INTO
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:27.290
  • YOUR FINANCES,
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:29.070
  • YOU DRIVE HIM OUT BY SAYING,
  • 00:22:29.070 --> 00:22:30.160
  • " MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL OF MY
  • 00:22:30.160 --> 00:22:32.190
  • NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:34.080
  • IN GLORY."
  • 00:22:34.080 --> 00:22:35.010
  • "I HAVE NEVER SEEN

  • THE RIGHTEOUS FORSAKEN
  • 00:22:36.010 --> 00:22:37.040
  • NOR THEIR SEED BEGGING BREAD."
  • 00:22:37.040 --> 00:22:38.260
  • WHEN HE COMES AGAINST
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:39.220
  • YOUR HOUSEHOLD, YOU SAY,
  • 00:22:39.220 --> 00:22:40.290
  • "AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE,
  • 00:22:40.290 --> 00:22:43.020
  • WE WILL SERVE THE LORD."
  • 00:22:43.020 --> 00:22:45.040
  • WHEN HE COMES AGAINST
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:46.070
  • YOUR MARRIAGE, YOU DECLARE,
  • 00:22:46.070 --> 00:22:47.120
  • "WHAT GOD HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER,
  • 00:22:47.120 --> 00:22:49.090
  • LET NO MAN PUT ASUNDER."
  • 00:22:49.090 --> 00:22:51.070
  • WHEN HE COMES AGAINST
  • 00:22:51.070 --> 00:22:52.020
  • YOUR PHYSICAL BODY,
  • 00:22:52.020 --> 00:22:53.120
  • YOU SAY THAT BY HIS STRIPES,

  • I AM HEALED.
  • 00:22:55.130 --> 00:22:56.290
  • WHEN HE COMES AGAINST
  • 00:22:56.290 --> 00:22:57.260
  • YOUR CHILDREN, YOU DECLARE,
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:22:59.170
  • "NO WEAPON FORMED WILL PROSPER.
  • 00:22:59.170 --> 00:23:02.010
  • "THE ANGELS OF GOD GO BEFORE
  • 00:23:02.010 --> 00:23:03.180

  • THEIR HANDS TO,
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:10.090
  • IT SHALL PROSPER."
  • 00:23:10.090 --> 00:23:11.280
  • YOU HAVE POWER TO DRIVE
  • 00:23:11.280 --> 00:23:13.200
  • THE ENEMY OUT OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:23:13.200 --> 00:23:16.010

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:23:22.220 --> 00:23:25.220
  • NOT ONLY IS THE WORD WORKING,

  • AND LIVING, AND FIGHTING,
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:30.120
  • BUT AS POWERFUL AS THE WORD

  • OF GOD IS,
  • 00:23:31.160 --> 00:23:34.030
  • IT WILL NOT HAVE ANY IMPACT

  • ON YOUR LIFE UNTIL IN FAITH
  • 00:23:37.050 --> 00:23:40.050
