  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: ON
  • 00:00:14.150 --> 00:00:15.060
  • THE SCREEN BEHIND ME ARE 13
  • 00:00:15.060 --> 00:00:17.190
  • OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL,
  • 00:00:17.190 --> 00:00:19.260
  • BRILLIANT, EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN
  • 00:00:20.080 --> 00:00:23.080
  • ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:00:23.080 --> 00:00:25.270
  • THESE --
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:27.130
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:30.270
  • THESE ARE MY GRANDCHILDREN,
  • 00:00:30.270 --> 00:00:32.070
  • MY GRANDCHILDREN AND DIANA'S
  • 00:00:32.070 --> 00:00:33.220
  • GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:00:33.220 --> 00:00:35.120
  • THEY ARE ALL HONOR STUDENTS AT
  • 00:00:35.120 --> 00:00:37.110
  • THE SCHOOL WHERE THEY ATTEND.
  • 00:00:37.110 --> 00:00:39.110
  • THEY ARE ALL COMMITTED TO
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:40.130
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:00:40.130 --> 00:00:42.020
  • THEY AND THEIR FIVE PARENTS
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:45.080
  • ARE THE JOY OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:00:45.080 --> 00:00:48.010
  • THERE IS A FAMILY IN OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:00:48.040 --> 00:00:51.040
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:51.110 --> 00:00:54.110
  • THE 21ST CENTURY, HOWEVER,
  • 00:00:54.110 --> 00:00:57.040
  • HAS KIND OF GOT THINGS TURNED
  • 00:00:57.040 --> 00:00:58.090
  • AROUND.
  • 00:00:58.090 --> 00:01:00.040
  • WHEN I WAS A CHILD,
  • 00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:01.110
  • CHILDREN OBEYED.
  • 00:01:01.110 --> 00:01:04.040
  • TODAY, AMERICA'S PARENTS SEND
  • 00:01:04.040 --> 00:01:05.190
  • THEIR DOGS TO OBEDIENCE SCHOOL
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:08.280
  • AND THEY SEND THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:10.100
  • TO CAMP APACHE.
  • 00:01:10.240 --> 00:01:13.240
  • THE RESULT IS THE DOGS BEHAVE
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:15.270
  • AND THE CHILDREN GO
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:16.240
  • ON THE WARPATH.
  • 00:01:16.240 --> 00:01:18.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:19.210
  • CHILDREN CAN BE THE SOURCE
  • 00:01:19.210 --> 00:01:20.190
  • OF ENDLESS QUESTIONS.
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:22.050
  • AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD BOY
  • 00:01:22.050 --> 00:01:23.040
  • WAS WALKING DOWN THE SIDEWALK
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:24.170
  • WITH HIS FATHER,
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:25.080
  • AND HE SAID, "DAD, WHAT MAKES
  • 00:01:25.080 --> 00:01:26.200
  • THE GRASS GREEN?"
  • 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:27.160
  • HIS DAD SAID,
  • 00:01:27.160 --> 00:01:28.030
  • "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:28.190
  • HE SAID, "DAD, WHAT MAKES
  • 00:01:28.190 --> 00:01:30.170
  • THE SKY BLUE?"
  • 00:01:30.170 --> 00:01:31.090
  • AND THE FATHER SAID,
  • 00:01:31.090 --> 00:01:31.290
  • "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:32.190
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:01:32.190 --> 00:01:33.060
  • "DAD, WHAT MAKES IT RAIN?"
  • 00:01:33.060 --> 00:01:35.050
  • AND THE FATHER SAID,
  • 00:01:35.050 --> 00:01:35.210
  • "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:36.290
  • THE BOY SAID,
  • 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:37.120
  • "DAD, YOU DON'T MIND ME ASKING
  • 00:01:37.120 --> 00:01:38.290
  • QUESTIONS; DO YOU?"
  • 00:01:38.290 --> 00:01:40.130
  • THE FATHER SAID, "NO.
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:41.100
  • HOW ARE YOU EVER GOING TO LEARN
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:42.060
  • ANYTHING?"
  • 00:01:42.060 --> 00:01:43.250
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:01:43.260 --> 00:01:46.260
  • WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE LITTLE,
  • 00:01:46.260 --> 00:01:48.090
  • THEY ASKED QUESTIONS,
  • 00:01:48.090 --> 00:01:50.050
  • AND SOMETIMES HARD QUESTIONS.
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:52.230
  • "DAD, HOW DO BABIES GET HERE?"
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:54.150
  • I ANSWERED,
  • 00:01:54.150 --> 00:01:55.010
  • "THE LORD SENDS THEM."
  • 00:01:55.010 --> 00:01:56.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:56.260 --> 00:01:57.200
  • AND THEN IT WENT TO THE STORK
  • 00:01:57.200 --> 00:01:59.020
  • UNTIL MATTHEW GOT HERE.
  • 00:01:59.020 --> 00:02:01.140
  • AND ABOUT AGE SIX, HE SAID,
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:02.270
  • "DAD, I KNOW GOD SENDS BABIES,
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:05.170
  • BUT HOW DOES HE SEND BABIES?"
  • 00:02:05.200 --> 00:02:08.200
  • I SAID,
  • 00:02:08.200 --> 00:02:09.080
  • "THAT'S FOR A LATER
  • 00:02:09.080 --> 00:02:10.010
  • DISCUSSION."
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:12.030
  • THE FACT OF LIFE CONCERNING OUR
  • 00:02:12.030 --> 00:02:14.010
  • CHILDREN IS THAT EVERY PARENT
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:16.030
  • IN THIS AUDIENCE HAS A CHOICE,
  • 00:02:16.240 --> 00:02:19.240
  • AND THAT CHOICE IS TO RAISE
  • 00:02:19.240 --> 00:02:21.060
  • YOUR CHILDREN BY THE LAW OF GOD
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:24.260
  • OR THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE,
  • 00:02:24.260 --> 00:02:27.030
  • ONE OF THE THOSE TWO.
  • 00:02:27.030 --> 00:02:28.220
  • THERE IS NO EXCEPTION.
  • 00:02:28.220 --> 00:02:30.240
  • THE LAW OF GOD BRINGS LOVE,
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:33.010
  • JOY, PEACE,
  • 00:02:33.010 --> 00:02:35.140
  • UNITY, PROSPERITY,
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:38.080
  • HAPPINESS UNLIMITED,
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:40.110
  • AND FINALLY ETERNAL LIFE
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:41.290
  • IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:43.140
  • THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE BRINGS
  • 00:02:43.140 --> 00:02:44.280
  • A CURSE.
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:46.160
  • IT BRINGS ENDLESS PAIN.
  • 00:02:46.160 --> 00:02:48.270
  • IT BRINGS SUFFERING.
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:50.250
  • IT BRINGS REBELLION.
  • 00:02:50.250 --> 00:02:52.030
  • AND YOU'RE WATCHING THAT
  • 00:02:52.030 --> 00:02:53.060
  • REBELLION IN THE STREETS OF
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:54.170
  • AMERICA RIGHT NOW ON THE
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:56.140
  • TELEVISION SET WITH EVERY ONE
  • 00:02:56.140 --> 00:02:58.020
  • OF THESE CLASHES THAT WE'RE
  • 00:02:58.020 --> 00:03:00.110
  • HAVING BETWEEN LARGE SECTIONS
  • 00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:03.140
  • OF OUR NATION THAT ARE IN
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:04.210
  • COMBAT WITH EACH OTHER.
  • 00:03:04.210 --> 00:03:07.090
  • AMERICA HAD BETTER HAVE
  • 00:03:07.090 --> 00:03:08.280
  • A SPIRITUAL REVIVAL OR WE'RE
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:11.160
  • GOING TO HAVE A REVOLUTION.
  • 00:03:11.160 --> 00:03:13.020
  • I CAN TELL YOU THAT'S GOING
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:14.020
  • TO BE THE FACT.
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:15.200
  • AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE,
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:17.040
  • WE HAVE CHOSEN THE LORD.
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:19.250
  • AND WE WILL SERVE HIM
  • 00:03:19.250 --> 00:03:21.030
  • AND SERVE HIM ONLY.
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:23.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:26.000 --> 00:03:29.000
  • PSALM 127:3, "BEHOLD,
  • 00:03:29.070 --> 00:03:32.070
  • CHILDREN ARE A HERITAGE
  • 00:03:32.070 --> 00:03:33.070
  • OF THE LORD.
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:34.160
  • THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB
  • 00:03:34.160 --> 00:03:35.090
  • IS A REWARD.
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:36.290
  • LIKE ARROWS IN THE HAND
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:38.110
  • OF A WARRIOR,
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:39.050
  • SO ARE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:40.140
  • OF ONE'S YOUTH.
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:42.030
  • HAPPY IS THE MAN
  • 00:03:42.030 --> 00:03:43.080
  • WHO HAS HIS QUIVER FULL OF THEM.
  • 00:03:43.080 --> 00:03:45.200
  • THEY SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED,
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:47.230
  • BUT SHALL SPEAK WITH
  • 00:03:47.230 --> 00:03:49.070
  • THEIR ENEMIES IN THE GATES."
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:51.100
  • FATHER, THANK YOU FOR THE JOY
  • 00:03:51.100 --> 00:03:54.060
  • AND THE PLEASURE
  • 00:03:54.060 --> 00:03:55.290
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD'S WORD
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:58.140
  • THAT SHOWS US GOD'S PORTRAIT
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:01.080
  • OF CHILDREN,
  • 00:04:01.080 --> 00:04:02.150
  • OF FATHERS AND MOTHERS.
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:04.190
  • TODAY HELP US HEAR
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:06.000
  • THIS PORTRAIT OF CHILDREN
  • 00:04:06.010 --> 00:04:09.010
  • AND INSTRUCT THEM IN THE WAY
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:11.010
  • OF THE LORD;
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:12.200
  • THAT THEIR LIVES MAY BE FILLED
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.190
  • WITH BLESSINGS.
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:16.190
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:18.010
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:19.070
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:20.060
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:21.070
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:25.140
  • THERE IS AN INVADING ARMY
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:28.240
  • THAT'S ABOUT TO SEIZE
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:29.260
  • OUR SCHOOLS,
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:31.220
  • OUR CHURCHES,
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:33.070
  • AND OUR HOMES.
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:34.280
  • THIS INVADING ARMY WILL
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:36.060
  • EVENTUALLY TAKE OVER OUR
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:37.160
  • GOVERNMENT AND DETERMINE THE
  • 00:04:37.160 --> 00:04:39.090
  • MORAL AND SPIRITUAL CLIMATE
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:41.290
  • OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:45.000
  • THIS INVADING ARMY IS NOT
  • 00:04:45.000 --> 00:04:47.030
  • COMING.
  • 00:04:47.030 --> 00:04:47.260
  • THIS INVADING ARMY IS HERE,
  • 00:04:47.260 --> 00:04:50.250
  • AND THIS ARMY IS OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:04:51.170 --> 00:04:54.170
  • HOW ARE WE PREPARING FOR OUR
  • 00:04:54.170 --> 00:04:56.160
  • CHILDREN TO BE FUTURE LEADERS
  • 00:04:56.160 --> 00:04:58.200
  • OF AMERICA?
  • 00:04:58.200 --> 00:04:59.230
  • WE OPENED THE DOORS OF OUR
  • 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:01.040
  • MAGNIFICENT NEW CORNERSTONE
  • 00:05:01.040 --> 00:05:03.060
  • CHRISTIAN SCHOOL TO DEMONSTRATE
  • 00:05:04.030 --> 00:05:07.030
  • TO OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:05:07.030 --> 00:05:08.110
  • AND TO OUR CONGREGATION,
  • 00:05:08.110 --> 00:05:10.130
  • AND TO OUR CITY,
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:11.150
  • AND TO OUR NATION, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:14.250
  • HOW IMPORTANT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:05:14.250 --> 00:05:16.200
  • OUR CHILDREN TO BE.
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:18.270
  • FIRST LET ME TELL YOU THIS
  • 00:05:18.270 --> 00:05:20.070
  • SCHOOL IS A GIFT FROM GOD.
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:23.000
  • ONLY GOD COULD MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:26.120
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:28.280
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:29.140
  • THERE IS NO FINER SCHOOL
  • 00:05:29.140 --> 00:05:31.120
  • IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:34.020
  • IT'S ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:35.210
  • IS OFF THE CHARTS.
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:37.080
  • IT'S ACADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS
  • 00:05:37.080 --> 00:05:39.000
  • ARE ALREADY ESTABLISHED.
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:40.260
  • I HAVE BEEN ASKED,
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:41.250
  • "SO WHY ARE WE MAKING
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:43.100
  • THIS GREAT SACRIFICE?"
  • 00:05:43.100 --> 00:05:45.000
  • AND THE ANSWER IS THIS,
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.240
  • IF WE FAIL OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:50.010
  • WE HAVE FAILED AT LIFE.
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:52.180
  • DON'T YOU EVER FORGET THAT.
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:54.240
  • I DON'T CARE IF YOU MAKE
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:55.240
  • A MILLION DOLLARS A MINUTE.
  • 00:05:55.240 --> 00:05:58.220
  • IF YOU FAIL AS A FATHER,
  • 00:05:58.220 --> 00:06:00.200
  • YOU ARE A FAILURE, PERIOD.
  • 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:04.120
  • SOLOMON, THE WISEST MAN
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:05.250
  • IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:06.230
  • SAYS, "THE FEAR OF THE LORD
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:08.250
  • IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:10.280
  • BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:13.000
  • AND INSTRUCTION."
  • 00:06:13.000 --> 00:06:14.220
  • WE MAKE THIS GREAT SACRIFICE
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.120
  • BECAUSE OUR CHILDREN ARE GOING
  • 00:06:16.120 --> 00:06:18.050
  • TO BE LEADERS,
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:19.110
  • LOCALLY AND NATIONALLY,
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:20.210

  • PAIN AND PENALTY THEIR FATHER
  • 00:16:42.200 --> 00:16:44.170

  • IT'S NOT A GOOD TIME
  • 00:18:50.020 --> 00:18:51.070
  • TO HAVE CHILDREN."
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:53.210
  • CONSIDER THE BIRTH OF MOSES.
  • 00:18:53.250 --> 00:18:56.250
  • HE WAS BORN WHEN THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:18:56.250 --> 00:18:57.290
  • POLICY WAS PUTTING MALE BABIES

  • NOT A GOOD TIME.

  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:34.180
  • THE GOVERNMENT WAS KILLING ALL
  • 00:19:34.180 --> 00:19:36.010
  • BABIES TWO YEARS OLD AND DOWN.

  • IT WAS NOT A GOOD TIME
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:40.160
  • TO HAVE A BABY.
  • 00:19:40.160 --> 00:19:42.120
  • BUT IF YOU TAKE THE LIFE

  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:18.220
  • THE BIBLE PLAN IS
  • 00:20:18.220 --> 00:20:20.100
  • YOU RAISE YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:20:20.100 --> 00:20:21.180
  • AND YOUR CHILDREN TAKE CARE
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:22.190
  • OF YOU IN THE OLD AGE.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:28.220 --> 00:20:31.220
  • GOD'S PLAN IS THAT THE CHILDREN
  • 00:20:31.220 --> 00:20:33.140
  • ARE TO TAKE CARE OF THE PARENTS,
  • 00:20:33.140 --> 00:20:34.230
  • NOT THE GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:20:34.230 --> 00:20:36.130
  • THE MORE CHILDREN YOU HAVE,
  • 00:20:36.130 --> 00:20:37.210
  • THE MORE PROTECTION YOU HAVE.
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:39.000
  • THAT'S GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:20:39.000 --> 00:20:40.080
  • BUT I MEAN WHAT DOES GOD KNOW?
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:41.210
  • I MEAN FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE.

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:43.240 --> 00:20:44.190

  • "HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT HAS
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:46.220
  • HIS QUIVER FULL."

  • AND RAISE THOSE CHILDREN,
  • 00:20:51.120 --> 00:20:52.240
  • AND ALL THOSE CHILDREN CAN'T
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:54.010
  • TAKE CARE OF THAT ONE MAN AND
  • 00:20:54.010 --> 00:20:55.120
  • ONE WOMAN WHEN THEY BECOME OLD.
  • 00:20:55.230 --> 00:20:58.230

  • THE FATHER'S BLESSING.

  • THE BLESSING IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:02.010
  • IS WHEN SOMEONE IN SPIRITUAL

  • AND SPEAKS A BLESSING OVER THEM.
  • 00:23:06.280 --> 00:23:08.160
  • THAT WOULD BE THE FATHER,
  • 00:23:08.160 --> 00:23:10.040
  • THE PASTOR, THE RABBI.
  • 00:23:10.040 --> 00:23:13.030
  • THE HISTORY OF BLESSING BEGINS
  • 00:23:13.030 --> 00:23:14.140

  • ISAAC HAD 12 SONS.

  • AND WHEN HE WAS DYING,
  • 00:23:21.030 --> 00:23:22.060
  • HE BLESSED THOSE 12 SONS,

  • EVERY WORD HE SPOKE INTO

  • THE LIVES OF THOSE 12 BOYS,
  • 00:23:26.140 --> 00:23:28.250
  • CONTROLLED THE HISTORY
  • 00:23:28.250 --> 00:23:30.160
  • OF THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 00:23:30.160 --> 00:23:31.270

  • THE SON OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:23:36.280 --> 00:23:38.020
  • THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:23:38.020 --> 00:23:38.260
  • WHEN HE BEGAN HIS MINISTRY,
  • 00:23:38.260 --> 00:23:40.140
  • BEGAN IT WITH EIGHT BLESSINGS.
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:42.060
  • YOU CALL IT "THE BEATITUDES,"
  • 00:23:42.060 --> 00:23:43.260
  • BUT THEY ARE EIGHT BLESSINGS.
  • 00:23:43.260 --> 00:23:45.230
  • JESUS' FIRST SERMON ON THE MOUNT
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:47.170
  • WAS THOSE EIGHT BLESSINGS.
  • 00:23:47.170 --> 00:23:48.260
  • HE BLESSED CHILDREN.
  • 00:23:48.260 --> 00:23:50.210
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:23:50.210 --> 00:23:51.070
  • "EXCEPT YOU BECOME LIKE A CHILD,
  • 00:23:51.070 --> 00:23:53.070
  • YOU WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM
  • 00:23:53.070 --> 00:23:54.070
  • OF HEAVEN."
  • 00:23:54.070 --> 00:23:54.260
  • CHILDREN BELIEVE.
  • 00:23:54.260 --> 00:23:56.120
  • CHILDREN ARE NOT SKEPTICAL.
  • 00:23:56.120 --> 00:23:58.060
  • THEY ARE NOT BITTER.
  • 00:23:58.060 --> 00:23:59.120
  • THEY ARE NOT PERPETUALLY ANGRY.
  • 00:23:59.120 --> 00:24:01.170
  • LUKE 18 SAYS,
  • 00:24:01.170 --> 00:24:02.270
  • "AND THEY (PEOPLE) BROUGHT UNTO
  • 00:24:02.270 --> 00:24:04.200
  • JESUS INFANTS;
  • 00:24:04.200 --> 00:24:05.210
  • THAT HE WOULD TOUCH THEM."
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:07.020
  • JESUS' REACTION WAS,
  • 00:24:07.020 --> 00:24:08.070
  • "ALLOW THE LITTLE CHILDREN
  • 00:24:08.070 --> 00:24:09.190
  • TO COME UNTO ME,
  • 00:24:09.190 --> 00:24:10.210

  • FOR OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM
  • 00:24:12.040 --> 00:24:13.270

  • BETWEEN GENERATIONS,
  • 00:28:04.050 --> 00:28:06.200
  • BECAUSE NEVER BEFORE HAS
  • 00:28:06.200 --> 00:28:08.050
  • THIS HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY
  • 00:28:08.050 --> 00:28:09.150
  • OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:28:09.150 --> 00:28:10.030
  • BUT IT'S HAPPENING NOW.
  • 00:28:10.030 --> 00:28:11.020
  • THERE ARE FOUR GENERATIONS
  • 00:28:11.020 --> 00:28:12.280
  • THAT ARE SHARING THE STAGE
  • 00:28:12.280 --> 00:28:14.160
  • ALL AT ONE TIME.
  • 00:28:14.160 --> 00:28:16.170
  • NEVER BEFORE HAVE GREAT
  • 00:28:16.170 --> 00:28:18.110
  • GRANDCHILDREN HAD THE CHANCE
  • 00:28:18.110 --> 00:28:20.010
  • TO KNOW
  • 00:28:20.010 --> 00:28:20.210
  • THEIR GREAT GRANDPARENTS,
  • 00:28:20.210 --> 00:28:22.020
  • BECAUSE IN YEARS PAST,
  • 00:28:22.020 --> 00:28:24.020
  • IF YOU KNEW SOMEBODY
  • 00:28:24.020 --> 00:28:25.090
  • OVER THE AGE OF 70,
  • 00:28:25.090 --> 00:28:26.260
  • THEY WERE A PRETTY RARE BIRD.
  • 00:28:26.290 --> 00:28:29.290
  • NOW, BECAUSE OF MEDICAL SCIENCE
  • 00:28:29.290 --> 00:28:31.160
  • AND BECAUSE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:28:31.160 --> 00:28:32.100
  • THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:28:32.100 --> 00:28:33.000
  • IN OUR MODERN WORLD,
  • 00:28:33.000 --> 00:28:33.240
  • THERE ARE MORE THAN 500.000
  • 00:28:33.240 --> 00:28:36.090
  • PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF
  • 00:28:36.090 --> 00:28:37.050
  • THE EARTH OVER THE AGE OF 100.
  • 00:28:38.020 --> 00:28:41.020
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:28:41.020 --> 00:28:43.290
  • AND AS WE HAVE THESE FOUR
  • 00:28:43.290 --> 00:28:45.190
  • GENERATIONS SHARING THE STAGE
  • 00:28:45.190 --> 00:28:47.100
  • OF THE WORLD TOGETHER,
  • 00:28:47.100 --> 00:28:48.230
  • WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:28:48.230 --> 00:28:49.270
  • THAT THERE IS A POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:28:49.270 --> 00:28:51.120
  • BETWEEN THEM.
  • 00:28:51.120 --> 00:28:53.090
  • WE BELIEVE THAT THEY DO IT
  • 00:28:53.090 --> 00:28:56.030
  • WRONG.
  • 00:28:56.030 --> 00:28:57.220
  • AND IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:28:57.220 --> 00:28:58.140
  • WHICH "WE" YOU ARE.
  • 00:28:58.140 --> 00:29:01.000
  • IF YOU'RE YOUNG,
  • 00:29:01.000 --> 00:29:02.050
  • YOU BELIEVE THEY,
  • 00:29:02.050 --> 00:29:03.150
  • THE OLD PEOPLE,
  • 00:29:03.150 --> 00:29:05.000
  • DO IT WRONG.
  • 00:29:05.000 --> 00:29:06.250
  • AND IF YOU'RE OLD,
  • 00:29:06.250 --> 00:29:09.050
  • IF YOU CAN REMEMBER
  • 00:29:09.050 --> 00:29:10.000
  • THEIR NAMES --
  • 00:29:10.000 --> 00:29:11.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:29:11.080 --> 00:29:13.030
  • -- YOU THINK THEY ARE DOING IT
  • 00:29:13.030 --> 00:29:15.050
  • WRONG.
  • 00:29:15.050 --> 00:29:17.140
  • AND THE REASON THAT THIS EXISTS
  • 00:29:17.140 --> 00:29:18.250
  • IS THE SAME REASON THAT THERE'S
  • 00:29:18.250 --> 00:29:19.260
  • A POWER STRUGGLE IN MARRIAGE
  • 00:29:19.260 --> 00:29:21.030
  • AND A POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:29:21.030 --> 00:29:21.240
  • WITHIN OURSELVES,
  • 00:29:21.240 --> 00:29:22.270
  • IS BECAUSE EVERY POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:29:22.270 --> 00:29:24.170
  • IS REALLY BROUGHT DOWN
  • 00:29:24.170 --> 00:29:25.230
  • TO TWO ROOT WORDS,
  • 00:29:25.230 --> 00:29:27.100
  • "SELFISHNESS" OR "SACRIFICE."
  • 00:29:28.020 --> 00:29:31.020
  • ARE YOU GOING TO BE SELFISH
  • 00:29:31.020 --> 00:29:32.170
  • AND DEMAND IT YOUR WAY?
  • 00:29:32.170 --> 00:29:33.270
  • OR ARE YOU GOING TO BE
  • 00:29:33.270 --> 00:29:34.190
  • SACRIFICIAL
  • 00:29:34.190 --> 00:29:35.190
  • AND DO IT GOD'S WAY?
  • 00:29:35.190 --> 00:29:38.020
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO
  • 00:29:38.020 --> 00:29:39.010
  • SAY ABOUT THE POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:29:39.010 --> 00:29:40.180
  • BETWEEN GENERATIONS.
  • 00:29:40.180 --> 00:29:42.030
  • LET'S FIRST READ MALACHI 4:6.
  • 00:29:42.030 --> 00:29:45.010
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:29:45.010 --> 00:29:46.130
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:29:46.130 --> 00:29:47.210
  • "AND HE WILL TURN THE HEARTS
  • 00:29:47.210 --> 00:29:50.130
  • OF THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN
  • 00:29:50.130 --> 00:29:53.040
  • AND THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN
  • 00:29:53.040 --> 00:29:54.210
  • TO THEIR FATHERS,
  • 00:29:54.210 --> 00:29:56.120
  • LEST I COME AND STRIKE
  • 00:29:56.120 --> 00:29:58.060
  • THE EARTH WITH A CURSE."
  • 00:29:58.060 --> 00:30:00.280
  • NOW HERE WE SEE THAT GOD
  • 00:30:00.280 --> 00:30:02.080
  • IS REQUIRING THAT THERE BE
  • 00:30:02.080 --> 00:30:03.160
  • RECONCILIATION BETWEEN
  • 00:30:03.160 --> 00:30:04.240
  • GENERATIONS
  • 00:30:04.240 --> 00:30:06.050
  • OR THERE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:30:06.050 --> 00:30:06.250
  • A CURSE.
  • 00:30:06.250 --> 00:30:08.100
  • LET'S READ PSALM 133
  • 00:30:08.100 --> 00:30:10.170
  • AND SEE WHAT THE BIBLE HAS
  • 00:30:10.170 --> 00:30:11.150
  • TO SAY ABOUT UNITY.
  • 00:30:11.150 --> 00:30:14.080
  • "BEHOLD, HOW GOOD AND PLEASANT
  • 00:30:14.080 --> 00:30:16.100
  • IT IS FOR BRETHREN TO DWELL
  • 00:30:16.100 --> 00:30:18.180
  • TOGETHER IN UNITY.
  • 00:30:18.180 --> 00:30:20.150
  • IT IS LIKE THE PRECIOUS OIL
  • 00:30:20.150 --> 00:30:22.120
  • UPON THE HEAD,
  • 00:30:22.120 --> 00:30:23.100
  • RUNNING DOWN ON THE BEARD,
  • 00:30:23.100 --> 00:30:24.270
  • THE BEARD OF AARON,
  • 00:30:24.270 --> 00:30:25.240
  • RUNNING DOWN ON THE EDGE
  • 00:30:25.240 --> 00:30:27.080
  • OF HIS GARMENTS.
  • 00:30:27.080 --> 00:30:28.240
  • IT IS THE DEW OF HERMON
  • 00:30:28.240 --> 00:30:30.180
  • DESCENDING UPON THE MOUNTAINS
  • 00:30:30.180 --> 00:30:32.010
  • OF ZION;
  • 00:30:32.010 --> 00:30:33.100
  • FOR THERE, THE LORD COMMANDED
  • 00:30:33.180 --> 00:30:36.180
  • THE BLESSING."
  • 00:30:36.180 --> 00:30:37.130
  • READ THAT WITH ME AGAIN.
  • 00:30:37.130 --> 00:30:38.160
  • "FOR THERE, THE LORD
  • 00:30:38.160 --> 00:30:40.250
  • COMMANDED THE BLESSING --"
  • 00:30:40.250 --> 00:30:43.050
  • "-- LIFE FOREVER MORE."
  • 00:30:43.050 --> 00:30:45.220
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:30:45.220 --> 00:30:47.030
  • LET YOUR WORD SPEAK TRUTH
  • 00:30:47.110 --> 00:30:50.110
  • INTO OUR SPIRIT TODAY;
  • 00:30:50.110 --> 00:30:52.190
  • THAT WHEN WE LEAVE THIS PLACE,
  • 00:30:52.190 --> 00:30:54.030
  • WE WOULD BE UNITED AND THAT YOU
  • 00:30:54.030 --> 00:30:57.030
  • WOULD COMMAND THE BLESSING,
  • 00:30:57.030 --> 00:30:58.160
  • NOT ONLY UPON
  • 00:30:58.160 --> 00:30:59.060
  • THIS CONGREGATION,
  • 00:30:59.060 --> 00:31:00.060
  • BUT THOSE WHO ARE HERE;
  • 00:31:00.060 --> 00:31:02.150
  • NOT ONLY UPON THEIR LIVES,
  • 00:31:02.150 --> 00:31:03.240
  • BUT EVERYTHING THAT THEY
  • 00:31:03.240 --> 00:31:04.150
  • PUT THEIR HANDS TO,
  • 00:31:04.150 --> 00:31:06.200
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVE SACRIFICIALLY
  • 00:31:06.200 --> 00:31:08.030
  • MADE A DECISION TODAY THAT THEY
  • 00:31:08.030 --> 00:31:09.150
  • ARE GOING TO SERVE YOUR KINGDOM
  • 00:31:09.150 --> 00:31:11.270
  • AND NONE OTHER.
  • 00:31:11.270 --> 00:31:13.060
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:31:13.060 --> 00:31:14.240
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:31:14.240 --> 00:31:16.130
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:31:16.130 --> 00:31:17.100
  • (Praise the Lord!)
  • 00:31:17.100 --> 00:31:18.050
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:31:19.030 --> 00:31:22.030
  • IN ORDER TO WIN
  • 00:31:22.030 --> 00:31:22.260
  • THE POWER STRUGGLE,
  • 00:31:22.260 --> 00:31:23.250
  • NO MATTER WHAT LEVEL IT'S ON,
  • 00:31:23.250 --> 00:31:25.080
  • YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE A DECISION
  • 00:31:25.080 --> 00:31:26.140
  • TO LIVE SACRIFICIALLY
  • 00:31:26.140 --> 00:31:28.060
  • RATHER THAN SELFISHLY.
  • 00:31:28.060 --> 00:31:30.060
  • AND WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:31:30.060 --> 00:31:31.010
  • GENERATIONAL PREFERENCE,
  • 00:31:31.010 --> 00:31:32.210
  • WE HAVE SELFISHLY CHOSEN OUR
  • 00:31:32.210 --> 00:31:35.060
  • PREFERENCE OVER OUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:31:35.260 --> 00:31:38.260
  • WHENEVER YOU CONSIDER WHAT
  • 00:31:38.260 --> 00:31:40.000
  • ONE GENERATION PREFERS
  • 00:31:40.000 --> 00:31:41.190
  • OVER THE OTHER,
  • 00:31:41.190 --> 00:31:42.180
  • USUALLY IT'S PRETTY MINOR STUFF
  • 00:31:42.180 --> 00:31:44.270
  • THAT SEPARATES US.
  • 00:31:44.270 --> 00:31:46.290
  • IT'S TYPICALLY THE THINGS
  • 00:31:46.290 --> 00:31:47.260
  • THAT MAKE US FEEL GOOD.
  • 00:31:47.260 --> 00:31:49.140
  • LET'S JUST CONSIDER IT HERE
  • 00:31:49.140 --> 00:31:50.250
  • IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:31:50.250 --> 00:31:51.160
  • WHENEVER WE TALK ABOUT
  • 00:31:51.160 --> 00:31:52.150
  • GENERATIONAL PREFERENCE,
  • 00:31:52.150 --> 00:31:53.280
  • LET'S CONSIDER MUSIC.
  • 00:31:53.280 --> 00:31:56.260
  • ONE GENERATION SAYS,
  • 00:31:56.260 --> 00:31:57.280
  • "THESE KINDS OF SONGS ARE
  • 00:31:57.280 --> 00:31:59.270
  • THE GOOD KIND OF CHURCH SONGS,"
  • 00:31:59.270 --> 00:32:02.040
  • WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE
  • 00:32:02.040 --> 00:32:04.140
  • IN JESUS
  • 00:32:04.140 --> 00:32:06.170
  • IF YOU KNOW IT, GO AHEAD.
  • 00:32:06.170 --> 00:32:08.000
  • ALL OUR SINS AND GRIEFS
  • 00:32:08.050 --> 00:32:11.050
  • TO BEAR
  • 00:32:11.050 --> 00:32:12.210
  • NOW I WOULD SUGGEST THAT
  • 00:32:12.210 --> 00:32:13.200
  • EVERYBODY WHO JUMPED IN THERE
  • 00:32:13.200 --> 00:32:14.240
  • IS OVER 45 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:32:14.240 --> 00:32:17.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:32:18.050 --> 00:32:21.050
  • AND THEN THERE'S ANOTHER
  • 00:32:21.050 --> 00:32:21.260
  • GENERATION THAT THEIR MUSICAL
  • 00:32:22.000 --> 00:32:25.000
  • PREFERENCE WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:32:25.000 --> 00:32:26.000
  • TO CHURCH IS,
  • 00:32:26.000 --> 00:32:26.280
  • I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:32:26.280 --> 00:32:29.100
  • MUSIC
  • 00:32:29.100 --> 00:32:30.160
  • I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:32:30.160 --> 00:32:32.170
  • MUSIC
  • 00:32:32.170 --> 00:32:34.000
  • I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
  • 00:32:34.000 --> 00:32:36.080
  • ( HE CALLS ME BLESSED )
  • 00:32:36.150 --> 00:32:39.150
  • YEAH, YEAH, YEAH
  • 00:32:39.150 --> 00:32:42.060
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:32:44.040 --> 00:32:47.040
  • NOW REGARDLESS
  • 00:32:47.040 --> 00:32:47.280
  • OF YOUR PREFERENCE,
  • 00:32:47.280 --> 00:32:48.270
  • CAN I ASK YOU WHAT THE
  • 00:32:48.270 --> 00:32:50.000
  • DIFFERENCE IS IN THE MESSAGE
  • 00:32:50.000 --> 00:32:51.020
  • OF THOSE TWO SONGS?
  • 00:32:51.020 --> 00:32:53.210
  • ONE SAYS WE HAVE A FRIEND
  • 00:32:53.210 --> 00:32:54.280
  • IN JESUS,
  • 00:32:54.280 --> 00:32:55.140
  • THE OTHER SAYS WHAT GOD SAID OF
  • 00:32:55.140 --> 00:32:57.000
  • ABRAHAM THAT HE WAS HIS FRIEND.
  • 00:32:57.000 --> 00:33:00.020
  • YOU KNOW THE THING THAT I FIND
  • 00:33:00.020 --> 00:33:00.290
  • IN COMMON ABOUT THOSE SONGS
  • 00:33:00.290 --> 00:33:02.110
  • IS THAT NONE OF THEM
  • 00:33:02.110 --> 00:33:03.150
  • ARE ABOUT YOU;
  • 00:33:03.150 --> 00:33:05.270
  • THEY'RE ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:33:05.270 --> 00:33:07.130
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:33:07.130 --> 00:33:08.160
  • AND THAT'S OUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:33:08.160 --> 00:33:10.200
  • OUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO MAKE
  • 00:33:10.200 --> 00:33:12.050
  • CHURCH ABOUT US
  • 00:33:12.050 --> 00:33:13.190
  • AND OUR PREFERENCE.
  • 00:33:13.190 --> 00:33:14.160
  • OUR PURPOSE IS TO MAKE CHURCH
  • 00:33:14.160 --> 00:33:16.100
  • ABOUT HIM AND HIS PURPOSE.
  • 00:33:16.240 --> 00:33:19.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:33:20.090 --> 00:33:23.090
  • YOU SEE HERE IN THIS TREE WHERE
  • 00:33:23.090 --> 00:33:24.150
  • THERE'S THE POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:33:24.150 --> 00:33:25.150
  • OF GENERATIONS,
  • 00:33:25.150 --> 00:33:26.210
  • YOU SEE ON ONE SIDE ALL OF THE
  • 00:33:26.210 --> 00:33:28.040
  • THINGS THAT COME WITH MATURITY,
  • 00:33:28.040 --> 00:33:29.230
  • AND ALL OF THE THINGS
  • 00:33:29.230 --> 00:33:30.110
  • THAT COME WITH YOUTH.
  • 00:33:30.110 --> 00:33:31.130
  • ON THIS SIDE,
  • 00:33:31.130 --> 00:33:32.040
  • YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:33:32.040 --> 00:33:33.150
  • AND THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY
  • 00:33:33.150 --> 00:33:34.080
  • TO GET EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:33:34.080 --> 00:33:35.080
  • AND THAT'S NOT DIE.
  • 00:33:35.080 --> 00:33:37.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:33:37.240 --> 00:33:38.220
  • AND THEN OVER HERE,
  • 00:33:38.220 --> 00:33:39.070
  • YOU HAVE A WILLFULNESS
  • 00:33:39.070 --> 00:33:40.240
  • THAT SAYS, I CAN DO IT MY WAY.
  • 00:33:40.240 --> 00:33:42.130
  • TIME WILL TAKE THAT OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:33:43.080 --> 00:33:46.080
  • YOU SEE TECHNOLOGY,
  • 00:33:46.080 --> 00:33:47.080
  • LIKE GOOGLE, WHEW!
  • 00:33:47.080 --> 00:33:49.280
  • DON'T GET ME STARTED THERE.
  • 00:33:49.280 --> 00:33:51.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:33:51.170 --> 00:33:52.120
  • LOST ART FORMS
  • 00:33:52.120 --> 00:33:53.080
  • LIKE CONVERSATION --
  • 00:33:53.080 --> 00:33:55.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:33:55.170 --> 00:33:56.250
  • -- THINGS THAT USED TO BE
  • 00:33:56.250 --> 00:33:58.040
  • VALUABLE LIKE LIBRARIES,
  • 00:33:59.090 --> 00:34:02.110
  • ATTITUDES,
  • 00:34:02.110 --> 00:34:04.090
  • ALL OF THEM ARE DIFFERENT.
  • 00:34:04.090 --> 00:34:05.150
  • WHY?
  • 00:34:05.150 --> 00:34:06.050
  • BECAUSE TIME HAS A WAY
  • 00:34:06.050 --> 00:34:08.080
  • OF CHANGING THINGS.
  • 00:34:08.100 --> 00:34:11.100
  • BUT FROM ONE GENERATION
  • 00:34:11.100 --> 00:34:12.060
  • TO THE OTHER,
  • 00:34:12.060 --> 00:34:12.220
  • THE PRINCIPLES ARE THE SAME.
  • 00:34:12.220 --> 00:34:13.220
  • ECCLESIASTES SAYS IT THIS WAY;
  • 00:34:13.220 --> 00:34:15.130
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:34:15.130 --> 00:34:16.010
  • "ONE GENERATION PASSES AWAY
  • 00:34:16.010 --> 00:34:17.090
  • AND ANOTHER RISES UP
  • 00:34:17.090 --> 00:34:18.120
  • TO REPLACE IT."
  • 00:34:18.120 --> 00:34:20.180
  • WHILE YOU'RE HERE,
  • 00:34:20.180 --> 00:34:21.210
  • RECOGNIZE WHAT ROLE YOU PLAY
  • 00:34:21.210 --> 00:34:24.050
  • AND BE WILLING TO PLAY IT
  • 00:34:24.050 --> 00:34:26.040
  • IN A SACRIFICIAL MANNER.
  • 00:34:26.040 --> 00:34:28.020
  • DO IT THE WAY GOD WANTS YOU
  • 00:34:28.020 --> 00:34:29.270
  • TO DO IT.
  • 00:34:29.270 --> 00:34:31.200
  • THIS IS NOT SOMETHING I'M JUST
  • 00:34:31.200 --> 00:34:32.210
  • OFFERING AS A FREE ADVICE.
  • 00:34:32.210 --> 00:34:34.000
  • THIS IS SOMETHING I'VE HAD
  • 00:34:34.000 --> 00:34:34.260
  • TO LEARN HOW TO DO IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:34:34.260 --> 00:34:37.220
  • YOU SEE I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF
  • 00:34:37.220 --> 00:34:38.280
  • SITTING IN THE MENTORSHIP AND
  • 00:34:38.280 --> 00:34:40.130
  • DISCIPLESHIP OF PASTOR HAGEE.
  • 00:34:40.130 --> 00:34:43.020
  • THAT'S A PRETTY RARE CHAIR,
  • 00:34:43.020 --> 00:34:44.140
  • BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY GETS
  • 00:34:44.140 --> 00:34:45.120
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:34:45.120 --> 00:34:47.040
  • BUT EVEN THEN,
  • 00:34:47.040 --> 00:34:47.290
  • I HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS
  • 00:34:47.290 --> 00:34:49.250
  • TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION
  • 00:34:49.250 --> 00:34:51.150
  • THROUGH SUBMISSION,
  • 00:34:51.150 --> 00:34:52.110
  • TO DO WHAT HE ASKS,
  • 00:34:52.110 --> 00:34:53.240
  • WHEN HE ASKS,
  • 00:34:53.240 --> 00:34:54.240
  • LIKE HE ASKS,
  • 00:34:54.240 --> 00:34:55.190
  • BECAUSE THAT'S MY JOB;
  • 00:34:55.190 --> 00:34:58.010
  • NOT SIT THERE AND DISAGREE
  • 00:34:58.010 --> 00:34:59.140
  • WITH MY DAD.
  • 00:34:59.140 --> 00:35:01.280
  • NOW OFTEN,
  • 00:35:01.280 --> 00:35:02.200
  • IF YOU'VE HEARD ME
  • 00:35:02.200 --> 00:35:03.090

  • BOTH "PASTOR" AND "FATHER."
  • 00:35:05.040 --> 00:35:07.230
  • WHY?
  • 00:35:07.230 --> 00:35:08.080
  • BECAUSE IN MY MIND,
  • 00:35:08.080 --> 00:35:09.050
  • IT MIGHT BE COMPLICATED
  • 00:35:09.050 --> 00:35:10.050
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:35:10.050 --> 00:35:10.190
  • BUT IT'S EASY FOR ME;
  • 00:35:10.190 --> 00:35:11.160
  • I SEE HIM IN BOTH OFFICES.
  • 00:35:11.280 --> 00:35:14.280

  • BUT I'VE NEVER DISAGREED
  • 00:35:19.180 --> 00:35:20.170
  • WITH MY PASTOR,
  • 00:35:20.170 --> 00:35:23.130
  • BECAUSE HE IS A SPIRITUAL
  • 00:35:23.130 --> 00:35:24.230
  • AUTHORITY OVER ME.
  • 00:35:24.230 --> 00:35:25.260
  • AND WHAT I RECOGNIZE IS THAT
  • 00:35:25.260 --> 00:35:27.030
  • IF I GET OUT FROM UNDER COVER,
  • 00:35:27.030 --> 00:35:28.150
  • I'M ON MY OWN.
  • 00:35:28.150 --> 00:35:30.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:35:33.260 --> 00:35:36.260

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:35:44.100 --> 00:35:46.170
  • I WAS 17 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:35:46.170 --> 00:35:47.180
  • AND DAD TOLD ME HE WANTED ME
  • 00:35:47.180 --> 00:35:48.210

  • NOW RECOGNIZE I'D BEEN WAITING
  • 00:35:50.000 --> 00:35:51.140

  • LIKE BIRTH.
  • 00:35:52.210 --> 00:35:54.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:35:54.080 --> 00:35:56.160

  • ON A SUNDAY NIGHT
  • 00:36:01.070 --> 00:36:02.030
  • BEFORE I LEFT FOR COLLEGE,

  • BECAUSE IF I WAS TERRIBLE,
  • 00:36:08.020 --> 00:36:09.160

  • AND THAT IS GOING TO BE A LOT
  • 00:36:36.020 --> 00:36:37.240
  • TO SAY.
  • 00:36:37.240 --> 00:36:39.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:36:39.100 --> 00:36:39.290

  • 00:41:27.210 --> 00:41:30.070
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:41:30.070 --> 00:41:30.210
  • "BUT IF ALL YOU DO

  • IS TELL THEM WHAT YOU SAY,"
  • 00:41:31.080 --> 00:41:33.180
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:41:33.180 --> 00:41:34.010
  • "THEY WON'T CROSS THE STREET
  • 00:41:34.010 --> 00:41:34.280
  • TO LISTEN."

  • YOU KNOW WHAT I SAID?
  • 00:41:41.290 --> 00:41:43.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:41:46.130 --> 00:41:49.130
  • I WASN'T NEARLY AS BLESSED
  • 00:41:49.130 --> 00:41:50.170
  • AS Y'ALL JUST GOT.
  • 00:41:50.170 --> 00:41:52.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:41:52.200 --> 00:41:53.270
  • THAT WAS WEEKS OF WORK
  • 00:41:53.270 --> 00:41:54.280
  • HE JUST BLED ALL OVER.
  • 00:41:54.280 --> 00:41:56.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:41:56.220 --> 00:41:57.160
  • I PICKED UP MY 36 ORPHANED
  • 00:41:57.160 --> 00:41:59.120
  • PAGES,
  • 00:41:59.120 --> 00:41:59.280
  • AND GRABBED THE TWO THAT
  • 00:41:59.280 --> 00:42:00.280
  • HE SAID I COULD KEEP
  • 00:42:00.280 --> 00:42:01.270
  • WITH ONLY FOUR LINES ON IT;
  • 00:42:01.270 --> 00:42:03.070
  • AND I WALKED BACK DOWN
  • 00:42:03.070 --> 00:42:04.020
  • THE HALL TO THE OFFICE
  • 00:42:04.020 --> 00:42:04.270
  • WHERE I WENT.
  • 00:42:04.270 --> 00:42:05.120
  • AND RIGHT HERE IS WHERE
  • 00:42:05.120 --> 00:42:06.120
  • THE HAGEE FAMILY STILL DEBATES
  • 00:42:06.120 --> 00:42:07.200
  • TO THIS DAY,
  • 00:42:07.200 --> 00:42:08.070
  • BECAUSE HE SAYS I SLAMMED
  • 00:42:08.070 --> 00:42:09.230
  • THE DOOR.
  • 00:42:09.230 --> 00:42:10.100
  • I DID NOT SLAM THE DOOR.
  • 00:42:10.100 --> 00:42:12.220
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:42:12.270 --> 00:42:15.270
  • I CLOSED IT RATHER FIRMLY,
  • 00:42:15.270 --> 00:42:17.190
  • BUT I DIDN'T SLAM IT.
  • 00:42:17.190 --> 00:42:19.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:19.110 --> 00:42:20.140
  • THE FACT THAT THERE'S NOT
  • 00:42:20.140 --> 00:42:21.070
  • A PICTURE IN THE CHAPEL OF ME
  • 00:42:21.070 --> 00:42:22.280
  • IN MEMORIAL IS PROOF
  • 00:42:22.280 --> 00:42:24.170
  • THAT I DIDN'T SLAM THE DOOR.
  • 00:42:24.170 --> 00:42:26.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:26.180 --> 00:42:29.020
  • AND I SAT THERE AT THAT DESK
  • 00:42:29.020 --> 00:42:30.110
  • WHERE I HAD SAT FOR WEEKS,
  • 00:42:30.110 --> 00:42:31.230
  • AND I WASN'T ABOUT TO GIVE IN
  • 00:42:31.230 --> 00:42:33.260
  • THAT EASY.
  • 00:42:33.260 --> 00:42:34.150
  • I WAS GETTING READY TO GO DOWN
  • 00:42:34.150 --> 00:42:36.030
  • THE HALL AND TELL ME DAD
  • 00:42:36.030 --> 00:42:37.240
  • WHY DAD WAS WRONG.
  • 00:42:37.240 --> 00:42:40.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:40.140 --> 00:42:41.120
  • AND I STARTED TO THINK ABOUT
  • 00:42:41.120 --> 00:42:42.080
  • HOW MY CREATIVE JUICES
  • 00:42:42.080 --> 00:42:43.290
  • HAD BEEN SUPPRESSED,
  • 00:42:43.290 --> 00:42:45.000
  • HOW MY TALENTS HAD BEEN
  • 00:42:45.000 --> 00:42:46.040
  • OVERLOOKED,
  • 00:42:46.040 --> 00:42:46.250
  • HOW MY GENIUS WAS BEING
  • 00:42:46.250 --> 00:42:48.080
  • TAKEN FOR GRANTED.
  • 00:42:48.080 --> 00:42:50.220
  • AND WHILE YOU LOOK AND THINK,
  • 00:42:50.220 --> 00:42:51.160
  • YOU FOOLISH BOY,
  • 00:42:51.160 --> 00:42:52.150
  • HOW MANY OF YOU,
  • 00:42:52.150 --> 00:42:53.130
  • IN YOUR MOMENT OF OFFENSE,
  • 00:42:53.130 --> 00:42:54.160
  • HAVE THOUGHT EVEN WORSE
  • 00:42:54.160 --> 00:42:55.150
  • THINGS?
  • 00:42:55.150 --> 00:42:57.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:42:57.090 --> 00:42:57.280
  • AND JUST BEFORE I HAD THE
  • 00:42:57.280 --> 00:42:59.030
  • COURAGE TO WALK DOWN THE HALL
  • 00:42:59.030 --> 00:43:00.150
  • AND TIE IT ON FOR ROUND TWO,
  • 00:43:00.240 --> 00:43:03.240
  • I HEARD THAT STILL,
  • 00:43:03.240 --> 00:43:04.190
  • SMALL VOICE.
  • 00:43:04.190 --> 00:43:05.110
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:43:05.110 --> 00:43:06.070
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WHEN I SAY,
  • 00:43:06.070 --> 00:43:07.120
  • "THAT STILL, SMALL VOICE"?
  • 00:43:07.120 --> 00:43:10.000
  • IT'S THOSE WORDS
  • 00:43:10.000 --> 00:43:10.260
  • THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WHISPERS
  • 00:43:10.260 --> 00:43:12.110
  • INTO YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:43:12.110 --> 00:43:13.060
  • AND SOMETIMES THEY SOUND LIKE
  • 00:43:13.060 --> 00:43:14.100
  • YOUR MOM,
  • 00:43:14.100 --> 00:43:14.260
  • AND THAT'S A LITTLE SPOOKY.
  • 00:43:14.260 --> 00:43:16.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:16.180 --> 00:43:18.210
  • AND JUST AS I REACHED FOR THE
  • 00:43:18.210 --> 00:43:19.200
  • DOOR AND I WAS GETTING READY
  • 00:43:19.200 --> 00:43:20.180
  • TO TURN THE KNOB,
  • 00:43:20.180 --> 00:43:21.120
  • I HEARD THAT STILL,
  • 00:43:21.120 --> 00:43:22.030
  • SMALL VOICE ASK ME
  • 00:43:22.030 --> 00:43:23.050
  • THIS QUESTION;
  • 00:43:23.050 --> 00:43:23.290
  • IS THERE WHERE IT ENDS?
  • 00:43:26.100 --> 00:43:29.100
  • AND I STOPPED AND I THOUGHT,
  • 00:43:29.100 --> 00:43:30.240
  • WHAT ENDS?
  • 00:43:30.240 --> 00:43:33.130
  • I AIN'T EVEN PREACHED
  • 00:43:33.130 --> 00:43:34.050
  • THE FIRST MESSAGE.
  • 00:43:34.050 --> 00:43:35.010
  • HOW CAN IT BE OVER WITH
  • 00:43:35.010 --> 00:43:36.030
  • BEFORE IT GETS STARTED?
  • 00:43:36.030 --> 00:43:37.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:37.200 --> 00:43:40.000
  • AND THE SMARTEST THING
  • 00:43:40.000 --> 00:43:40.270
  • THAT I DID THAT DAY,
  • 00:43:40.270 --> 00:43:42.070
  • AND IT'S SOMETHING
  • 00:43:42.070 --> 00:43:42.240
  • I LEARNED THEN
  • 00:43:42.240 --> 00:43:43.190
  • AND STILL PRACTICE NOW,
  • 00:43:43.190 --> 00:43:44.280
  • IS I SAT DOWN.
  • 00:43:45.260 --> 00:43:48.260
  • YOU SEE I HEARD THE VOICE
  • 00:43:48.260 --> 00:43:50.070
  • OF THE LORD ASK ME A QUESTION,
  • 00:43:50.070 --> 00:43:51.220
  • AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:43:51.220 --> 00:43:52.240
  • WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:43:52.240 --> 00:43:53.220
  • AND SO I SAT DOWN
  • 00:43:53.220 --> 00:43:55.130
  • AND WAS QUIET.
  • 00:43:55.130 --> 00:43:57.150
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:43:57.150 --> 00:43:58.030
  • WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE HEARING
  • 00:43:58.030 --> 00:43:59.080
  • GOD,
  • 00:43:59.080 --> 00:43:59.240
  • BUT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:43:59.240 --> 00:44:00.280
  • EXACTLY WHAT HE'S SAYING,
  • 00:44:00.280 --> 00:44:01.220
  • JUST SIT STILL
  • 00:44:01.220 --> 00:44:02.220
  • UNTIL HE EXPLAINS IT TO YOU.
  • 00:44:02.220 --> 00:44:05.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:44:09.070 --> 00:44:12.070
  • AND SO I SAT THERE
  • 00:44:12.070 --> 00:44:13.020
  • AND I LISTENED.
  • 00:44:13.020 --> 00:44:15.080
  • AND RATHER THAN HEAR MORE
  • 00:44:15.080 --> 00:44:16.090
  • WORDS, I SAW.
  • 00:44:16.090 --> 00:44:19.040
  • I SAW THINGS FROM MY CHILDHOOD,
  • 00:44:19.040 --> 00:44:20.290
  • FROM YEARS OF HAVING
  • 00:44:20.290 --> 00:44:22.220
  • THE PRIVILEGE OF TRAVELING
  • 00:44:22.220 --> 00:44:23.270
  • WITH MY FATHER
  • 00:44:23.270 --> 00:44:25.060
  • FROM PLACE TO PLACE,
  • 00:44:25.060 --> 00:44:26.030
  • AS HE WOULD SPEAK
  • 00:44:26.030 --> 00:44:26.280
  • AND HE WOULD MINISTER.
  • 00:44:26.280 --> 00:44:27.250
  • AND SEEING THE FACES OF OTHER
  • 00:44:27.250 --> 00:44:29.120
  • PASTORS IN OTHER CHURCHES,
  • 00:44:29.120 --> 00:44:31.030
  • MEN THAT YOU WOULD KNOW,
  • 00:44:31.030 --> 00:44:33.150
  • MEN WHO ARE LEADING

  • IN AMERICA TODAY;
  • 00:44:35.080 --> 00:44:37.080
  • THEY WOULD COME TO ME
  • 00:44:37.080 --> 00:44:38.050
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:44:38.050 --> 00:44:39.000
  • "MATTHEW, IF I COULD JUST
  • 00:44:39.000 --> 00:44:40.080
  • SPEND AN HOUR WITH YOUR DAD,"
  • 00:44:40.090 --> 00:44:43.090
  • "IF I COULD JUST TALK TO HIM

  • ABOUT MY CHURCH,"
  • 00:44:44.150 --> 00:44:45.090
  • "IF I COULD JUST ASK HIM
  • 00:44:45.090 --> 00:44:46.130
  • QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HE WOULD
  • 00:44:46.130 --> 00:44:47.230
  • DO IF HE WERE IN MY SITUATION."
  • 00:44:49.150 --> 00:44:52.150
  • AND SUDDENLY I RECOGNIZED
  • 00:44:52.150 --> 00:44:54.060
  • THAT I HAD,
  • 00:44:54.060 --> 00:44:55.140
  • AT MY FINGERTIPS,
  • 00:44:55.140 --> 00:44:56.270
  • THE PRIVILEGE THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:44:56.270 --> 00:44:58.110
  • ASKING FOR.
  • 00:44:58.110 --> 00:45:00.250
  • GOD AND HIS PROVIDENCE PUT ME
  • 00:45:00.250 --> 00:45:02.150
  • UNDERNEATH THE ROOF OF THE MAN
  • 00:45:02.150 --> 00:45:04.180
  • THAT I COULD LEARN FROM.
  • 00:45:04.180 --> 00:45:05.290
  • NOW ALL I HAD TO DO WAS BE
  • 00:45:05.290 --> 00:45:07.190
  • SUBMITTED ENOUGH TO LEARN.
  • 00:45:07.260 --> 00:45:10.260
  • HE ALREADY KNEW HOW TO DO
  • 00:45:10.260 --> 00:45:12.080
  • WHAT I WANTED.
  • 00:45:12.080 --> 00:45:14.220
  • NOW I JUST HAD TO BE
  • 00:45:14.220 --> 00:45:16.100
  • SUBMISSIVE
  • 00:45:16.100 --> 00:45:16.280
  • SO THAT I COULD ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:45:16.280 --> 00:45:17.260
  • THE MISSION.
  • 00:45:18.020 --> 00:45:21.020
  • SO I TOOK ALL OF THOSE INKED-UP
  • 00:45:21.020 --> 00:45:23.030
  • PAGES AND I THREW THEM
  • 00:45:23.030 --> 00:45:25.270
  • IN THE TRASH.
  • 00:45:25.290 --> 00:45:28.290
  • I TOOK AN EMPTY,
  • 00:45:28.290 --> 00:45:30.090
  • BLANK NOTEBOOK PAD
  • 00:45:30.090 --> 00:45:33.040
  • AND A BLUE PEN,
  • 00:45:33.040 --> 00:45:33.290
  • BECAUSE I WAS TIRED OF RED.
  • 00:45:33.290 --> 00:45:35.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:35.260 --> 00:45:38.170
  • AND I WENT BACK INTO
  • 00:45:38.170 --> 00:45:39.050
  • MY DAD'S ROOM, AND I SAID,
  • 00:45:39.050 --> 00:45:40.050
  • "DAD, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:45:40.230 --> 00:45:43.230
  • BUT IF YOU SHOW ME,
  • 00:45:43.230 --> 00:45:46.030
  • I'LL DO IT."
  • 00:45:46.030 --> 00:45:48.150
  • AND IT'S BEEN THAT WAY
  • 00:45:48.150 --> 00:45:49.110
  • FROM THAT DAY UNTIL THIS ONE.
  • 00:45:49.160 --> 00:45:52.160
  • NOW WHAT THAT HAS HELPED US
  • 00:45:52.160 --> 00:45:53.240
  • TO ACCOMPLISH IS WHAT I CALL
  • 00:45:53.240 --> 00:45:55.020
  • "GENERATIONAL LEVERAGE."
  • 00:45:55.020 --> 00:45:57.140
  • YOU SEE IF I NEEDED A LOAN
  • 00:45:57.140 --> 00:45:59.150
  • FROM A BANK,
  • 00:45:59.150 --> 00:46:00.040
  • I WOULD GO TO A BANK
  • 00:46:00.040 --> 00:46:00.290
  • WITH A CHECK.
  • 00:46:00.290 --> 00:46:01.250
  • AND I WOULD SAY TO THE BANK,
  • 00:46:01.250 --> 00:46:02.260
  • "HERE'S MY MONEY.
  • 00:46:02.260 --> 00:46:03.260
  • NOW I WOULD LIKE TO LEVERAGE
  • 00:46:03.260 --> 00:46:05.100
  • MY MONEY INTO YOUR MONEY."
  • 00:46:05.100 --> 00:46:07.030
  • AND THEY WOULD GIVE ME MORE
  • 00:46:07.030 --> 00:46:08.140
  • MONEY, BECAUSE THEY HAVE IT
  • 00:46:08.140 --> 00:46:09.290
  • AND I DON'T.
  • 00:46:09.290 --> 00:46:10.220
  • SO I HAVE CREATED LEVERAGE
  • 00:46:10.220 --> 00:46:12.090
  • WITH A LITTLE BIT OF MINE
  • 00:46:12.090 --> 00:46:13.090
  • AND A WHOLE LOT OF THEIRS.
  • 00:46:13.090 --> 00:46:15.240
  • WELL HERE'S HOW GENERATIONAL
  • 00:46:15.240 --> 00:46:16.270
  • LEVERAGE WORKS.
  • 00:46:16.270 --> 00:46:17.290
  • HOW MANY OF YOU'VE EVER HEARD
  • 00:46:17.290 --> 00:46:19.100
  • SOMEBODY WITH WISDOM
  • 00:46:19.100 --> 00:46:20.110
  • AND EXPERIENCE SAY THESE KINDS
  • 00:46:20.110 --> 00:46:22.090
  • OF THINGS;
  • 00:46:22.090 --> 00:46:23.000
  • "IF I ONLY KNEW THEN
  • 00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:25.040
  • WHAT I KNOW NOW"?
  • 00:46:26.150 --> 00:46:29.150
  • WELL THE WAY THAT GENERATIONAL
  • 00:46:29.150 --> 00:46:30.140
  • LEVERAGE WORKS IS PASTOR
  • 00:46:30.140 --> 00:46:32.050
  • AND I HAD A CONVERSATION
  • 00:46:32.050 --> 00:46:33.120
  • WHEN I GOT OUT OF COLLEGE.
  • 00:46:33.120 --> 00:46:34.090
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:46:34.090 --> 00:46:34.220
  • "SON, IF I ONLY KNEW THEN
  • 00:46:34.220 --> 00:46:36.240
  • WHAT I KNOW NOW
  • 00:46:36.240 --> 00:46:37.290
  • AND HAD THE ENERGY
  • 00:46:37.290 --> 00:46:39.170
  • OF MY 20'S."
  • 00:46:39.170 --> 00:46:42.000
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:46:42.000 --> 00:46:42.160
  • "DAD, I'M IN MY 20'S,
  • 00:46:43.090 --> 00:46:46.090
  • AND I GOT ALL KINDS OF ENERGY,
  • 00:46:46.090 --> 00:46:48.230
  • BUT I AM ALL KINDS
  • 00:46:48.230 --> 00:46:49.250
  • OF IGNORANT."
  • 00:46:49.250 --> 00:46:52.150
  • IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:46:52.150 --> 00:46:52.280
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:46:52.280 --> 00:46:54.090
  • "IGNORANCE" IS NOT A BAD WORD.
  • 00:46:54.090 --> 00:46:55.200
  • "IGNORANCE" MEANS
  • 00:46:55.200 --> 00:46:56.090
  • YOU'RE JUST CLUELESS
  • 00:46:56.090 --> 00:46:58.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:46:58.050 --> 00:46:59.060
  • A WORD TO THE WISE,
  • 00:46:59.060 --> 00:47:00.060
  • MOST 21 YEAR OLDS
  • 00:47:00.060 --> 00:47:01.140
  • ARE CLUELESS.
  • 00:47:01.140 --> 00:47:03.160
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:47:03.160 --> 00:47:05.080
  • I SAID, "DAD,"
  • 00:47:05.080 --> 00:47:05.260
  • I SAID, "IF YOU WILL LOAN ME
  • 00:47:05.260 --> 00:47:08.130
  • YOUR WISDOM,
  • 00:47:08.130 --> 00:47:10.180
  • I WILL LEVERAGE IT
  • 00:47:10.180 --> 00:47:11.200
  • WITH MY ENERGY.
  • 00:47:11.200 --> 00:47:13.200
  • IF YOU'LL TELL ME WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:47:13.200 --> 00:47:15.290
  • I'LL DO IT.
  • 00:47:15.290 --> 00:47:17.290
  • I WON'T ARGUE;
  • 00:47:17.290 --> 00:47:18.290
  • I'LL JUST DO IT."
  • 00:47:18.290 --> 00:47:21.160
  • AND WHAT I WAS ABLE TO DO
  • 00:47:21.160 --> 00:47:22.200
  • WAS TAKE, AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:47:22.200 --> 00:47:24.050
  • FOUR DECADES OF EXPERIENCE AND
  • 00:47:24.050 --> 00:47:26.100
  • LEVERAGE IT INTO MY ENERGY.
  • 00:47:27.050 --> 00:47:30.050
  • AND THAT'S HOW WE'VE
  • 00:47:30.050 --> 00:47:30.270
  • ACCOMPLISHED WHAT WE'VE
  • 00:47:30.270 --> 00:47:31.280
  • ACCOMPLISHED IN THIS MINISTRY
  • 00:47:31.280 --> 00:47:33.170
  • IN THE LAST 20 YEARS.
  • 00:47:33.170 --> 00:47:36.130
  • THAT'S WHY WE CAN DO
  • 00:47:36.130 --> 00:47:37.160
  • THE THINGS THAT WE DO.
  • 00:47:37.160 --> 00:47:38.210
  • I AM SO THANKFUL
  • 00:47:38.210 --> 00:47:40.000
  • THAT AT CORNERSTONE,
  • 00:47:40.000 --> 00:47:40.240
  • WE PRIORITIZE THE NEXT
  • 00:47:40.240 --> 00:47:42.210
  • GENERATION.
  • 00:47:42.210 --> 00:47:44.100
  • LET ME SHOW YOU
  • 00:47:44.100 --> 00:47:44.270
  • WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:47:44.270 --> 00:47:45.190
  • THESE ARE JUST A FEW
  • 00:47:45.190 --> 00:47:46.220
  • OF THE PICTURES THAT TELL YOU
  • 00:47:46.220 --> 00:47:48.020
  • HOW SERIOUS WE ARE ABOUT
  • 00:47:48.020 --> 00:47:49.190
  • REACHING YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:47:49.190 --> 00:47:52.150
  • THIS FIRST PICTURE
  • 00:47:52.150 --> 00:47:53.080
  • IS OUR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL.
  • 00:47:53.120 --> 00:47:56.120
  • IT'S WHAT 2.000 KIDS
  • 00:47:56.120 --> 00:47:57.250
  • LOOK LIKE IN THE SANCTUARY.
  • 00:47:57.270 --> 00:48:00.290
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING?
  • 00:48:00.290 --> 00:48:02.200
  • THEY'RE WORSHIPING JESUS.
  • 00:48:02.200 --> 00:48:05.090
  • THEY'RE CELEBRATING
  • 00:48:05.090 --> 00:48:05.270
  • THEIR SALVATION.
  • 00:48:05.270 --> 00:48:07.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:48:10.140 --> 00:48:13.140
  • TAKE A LOOK
  • 00:48:13.140 --> 00:48:13.280
  • AT THIS NEXT PICTURE.
  • 00:48:13.280 --> 00:48:14.190
  • VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL IS ONE
  • 00:48:14.190 --> 00:48:15.260
  • OF MY FAVORITE WEEKS
  • 00:48:15.260 --> 00:48:17.010
  • OF THE YEAR.
  • 00:48:17.010 --> 00:48:18.120
  • I GOT MY START IN CHILDREN'S
  • 00:48:18.120 --> 00:48:19.240
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:48:19.240 --> 00:48:21.180
  • PASTOR WANTED ME TO LEARN HOW
  • 00:48:21.180 --> 00:48:23.010
  • TO WORK WITH PUPPETS
  • 00:48:23.010 --> 00:48:23.290
  • BEFORE PEOPLE, SO --
  • 00:48:23.290 --> 00:48:25.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:48:25.200 --> 00:48:28.140
  • THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE EVENTS
  • 00:48:28.140 --> 00:48:29.180
  • THAT OUR CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT
  • 00:48:29.180 --> 00:48:30.200
  • DOES ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.
  • 00:48:30.200 --> 00:48:32.120
  • BUT IT'S CERTAINLY SOMETHING
  • 00:48:32.120 --> 00:48:33.160
  • THAT WE DO EACH
  • 00:48:33.160 --> 00:48:34.280
  • AND EVERY WEEK.
  • 00:48:34.280 --> 00:48:35.270
  • TAKE A LOOK AT OUR ARK.
  • 00:48:35.270 --> 00:48:37.170
  • THIS IS OUR NURSERY FACILITY.
  • 00:48:37.180 --> 00:48:40.180
  • THIS IS WHERE KIDS COME
  • 00:48:40.180 --> 00:48:41.130
  • AND GATHER,
  • 00:48:41.130 --> 00:48:42.100
  • NOT ONLY DURING SUNDAY
  • 00:48:42.100 --> 00:48:43.060
  • SERVICES,
  • 00:48:43.060 --> 00:48:43.230
  • BUT THROUGHOUT THE WEEK WITH
  • 00:48:43.230 --> 00:48:44.270
  • DAY CARE AND MOTHER'S DAY OUT.
  • 00:48:44.270 --> 00:48:46.090
  • THE ARK IS FILLED WITH LIFE.
  • 00:48:46.200 --> 00:48:49.200
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE GOING
  • 00:48:49.200 --> 00:48:50.100
  • TO A SUNDAY SCHOOL THAT HAD
  • 00:48:50.100 --> 00:48:51.220
  • LIFE-SIZED ELEPHANTS,
  • 00:48:51.220 --> 00:48:53.020
  • AND GIRAFFES, AND LIONS,
  • 00:48:53.020 --> 00:48:54.100
  • AND TIGERS AND BEARS, OH MY?
  • 00:48:54.100 --> 00:48:56.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:48:56.250 --> 00:48:58.090
  • THE ONLY REASON THAT THAT
  • 00:48:58.090 --> 00:48:59.050
  • HAPPENS IS BECAUSE THIS CHURCH
  • 00:48:59.050 --> 00:49:00.270
  • PUTS A PREMIUM
  • 00:49:00.270 --> 00:49:02.080
  • ON THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 00:49:02.080 --> 00:49:04.260
  • WE WANT THEM TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:49:04.260 --> 00:49:06.010
  • THE JOY OF THE LORD.
  • 00:49:06.010 --> 00:49:08.040
  • THIS IS WHAT THEIR SERVICES
  • 00:49:08.040 --> 00:49:09.050
  • LOOK LIKE ON SUNDAY MORNING.
  • 00:49:09.050 --> 00:49:10.150
  • THERE'S ABOUT 150 OF THEM
  • 00:49:10.150 --> 00:49:11.250
  • IN THERE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:49:11.250 --> 00:49:13.150
  • YOU WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:49:13.150 --> 00:49:14.040
  • WHERE THERE'S A LOT OF ENERGY
  • 00:49:14.040 --> 00:49:15.080
  • AND THE NEED FOR A LOT
  • 00:49:15.080 --> 00:49:16.040
  • OF VOLUNTEERS?
  • 00:49:16.040 --> 00:49:17.010
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:49:17.040 --> 00:49:20.040
  • PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, "PASTOR,
  • 00:49:20.040 --> 00:49:21.080
  • I WANT TO WORK IN THE CHURCH."
  • 00:49:21.080 --> 00:49:22.070
  • "WE NEED YOU IN THE NURSERY."
  • 00:49:22.070 --> 00:49:23.070
  • "OH NO, I'M GOOD."
  • 00:49:23.070 --> 00:49:25.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:49:27.060 --> 00:49:30.060
  • NOT ONLY DO WE DO THIS
  • 00:49:30.060 --> 00:49:31.160
  • ON SUNDAY,
  • 00:49:31.160 --> 00:49:32.030
  • BUT MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY,
  • 00:49:32.030 --> 00:49:33.000
  • WE HAVE A BLESSING CALLED
  • 00:49:33.000 --> 00:49:34.160
  • CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS.
  • 00:49:34.160 --> 00:49:36.090
  • THIS IS JUST ONE KINDERGARTEN
  • 00:49:36.090 --> 00:49:37.170
  • CLASS.
  • 00:49:37.170 --> 00:49:38.040
  • I THINK THEY'RE ON THEIR WAY
  • 00:49:38.040 --> 00:49:38.260
  • TO LUNCH.
  • 00:49:38.260 --> 00:49:40.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:49:40.160 --> 00:49:42.120
  • WE GO FROM KINDERGARTEN ALL

  • THE WAY THROUGH THE 12TH GRADE
  • 00:49:43.130 --> 00:49:44.290
  • EACH AND EVERY DAY,
  • 00:49:44.290 --> 00:49:46.010
  • ENCOUNTERING THESE CHILDREN,
  • 00:49:46.010 --> 00:49:47.190
  • NOT WITH AN INDOCTRINATION
  • 00:49:47.190 --> 00:49:49.060
  • OF A SECULAR CURRICULUM,
  • 00:49:49.060 --> 00:49:50.140
  • BUT WITH A CHRIST-CENTERED
  • 00:49:50.140 --> 00:49:51.150
  • FOUNDATION IN THEIR EDUCATION.
  • 00:49:51.150 --> 00:49:52.290
  • JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO,
  • 00:49:52.290 --> 00:49:54.160
  • OVER A HUNDRED CHILDREN MADE
  • 00:49:54.160 --> 00:49:56.070
  • THEIR PROFESSIONS OF FAITH
  • 00:49:56.070 --> 00:49:58.020
  • AND RECEIVED WATER BAPTISM
  • 00:49:58.020 --> 00:49:59.170
  • IN FRONT OF THEIR PEERS
  • 00:49:59.170 --> 00:50:00.160
  • AND IN FRONT OF OTHERS.
  • 00:50:00.160 --> 00:50:01.240
  • IT WAS A WONDERFUL THING
  • 00:50:01.240 --> 00:50:02.280
  • TO SEE.
  • 00:50:02.280 --> 00:50:04.100
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:50:06.230 --> 00:50:09.230
  • NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE A SCHOOL
  • 00:50:09.230 --> 00:50:10.280
  • CAMPUS AND THIS CHURCH CAMPUS;
  • 00:50:10.280 --> 00:50:12.080
  • WE HAVE A TARPLEY HILL COUNTRY
  • 00:50:12.080 --> 00:50:14.030
  • CAMP CAMPUS WHERE WE SEND
  • 00:50:14.030 --> 00:50:15.210
  • OUR KIDS ON A REGULAR BASIS
  • 00:50:15.210 --> 00:50:17.240
  • FOR WEEKEND RETREATS,
  • 00:50:17.240 --> 00:50:18.270
  • FOR REVIVAL SERVICES,
  • 00:50:18.270 --> 00:50:20.080
  • FOR SUMMER CAMPS,
  • 00:50:20.080 --> 00:50:20.290
  • WINTER CAMPS,
  • 00:50:20.290 --> 00:50:22.160
  • AND A NUMBER OF OTHER THINGS,
  • 00:50:22.160 --> 00:50:24.280
  • BECAUSE THESE CHILDREN
  • 00:50:24.290 --> 00:50:27.290
  • ARE 100% OF OUR FUTURE.
  • 00:50:28.250 --> 00:50:31.250
  • THIS IS WHAT THESE YOUTH LOOK
  • 00:50:31.250 --> 00:50:32.250
  • LIKE ON SUNDAY MORNING WHEN
  • 00:50:32.250 --> 00:50:33.290
  • THEY'RE WORSHIPING THE LORD.
  • 00:50:33.290 --> 00:50:36.260
  • NOW SOME OF YOU SIT THERE
  • 00:50:36.260 --> 00:50:37.230
  • AND YOU LOOK AT THAT PICTURE,
  • 00:50:37.230 --> 00:50:38.200
  • AND YOU GO, "IT'S TOO DARK.
  • 00:50:38.210 --> 00:50:41.210
  • THERE'S TOO MUCH SMOKE.
  • 00:50:41.210 --> 00:50:42.230
  • THE HOLY GHOST CAN'T BREATHE."
  • 00:50:42.230 --> 00:50:44.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:50:45.110 --> 00:50:48.110
  • NOW LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:50:48.110 --> 00:50:50.250
  • WHAT I SEE IS NOT PREFERENCE.
  • 00:50:51.070 --> 00:50:54.070
  • WHAT I SEE IS PURPOSE,
  • 00:50:54.070 --> 00:50:57.040
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:50:57.040 --> 00:50:57.280
  • "LET EVERYTHING THAT HATH
  • 00:50:57.280 --> 00:51:00.090
  • BREATH PRAISE THE LORD."
  • 00:51:01.110 --> 00:51:04.110
  • AND IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT'S
  • 00:51:04.110 --> 00:51:05.070
  • A BEACH BALL IN VACATION
  • 00:51:05.070 --> 00:51:07.110
  • BIBLE SCHOOL
  • 00:51:07.110 --> 00:51:08.080
  • OR IT'S THAT ALTAR WHERE
  • 00:51:08.080 --> 00:51:09.090
  • THESE KIDS ARE LIFTING THEIR
  • 00:51:09.090 --> 00:51:10.170
  • HANDS AND RAISING THEIR VOICE;
  • 00:51:10.170 --> 00:51:12.020
  • THAT'S WHAT THEY WERE
  • 00:51:12.020 --> 00:51:13.080
  • CREATED FOR.
  • 00:51:13.080 --> 00:51:16.040
  • AND IF THIS GENERATION
  • 00:51:16.040 --> 00:51:17.120
  • DOESN'T PROTECT THEM,
  • 00:51:17.120 --> 00:51:19.260
  • THEY DON'T STAND A CHANCE.
  • 00:51:19.260 --> 00:51:22.080
  • IF WE DON'T PROVIDE FOR THEM,
  • 00:51:22.080 --> 00:51:24.170
  • THEY'LL TURN TO OTHERS
  • 00:51:24.170 --> 00:51:25.200
  • IN ORDER TO RECEIVE
  • 00:51:25.200 --> 00:51:26.180
  • WHAT THEY NEED.
  • 00:51:26.180 --> 00:51:28.110
  • IF WE DON'T PRIORITIZE THEM,
  • 00:51:28.160 --> 00:51:31.160
  • THEY'RE GOING TO SUFFER
  • 00:51:31.160 --> 00:51:33.070
  • INSTEAD OF SUCCEED.
  • 00:51:33.150 --> 00:51:36.150
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:51:36.150 --> 00:51:37.090
  • THAT WHERE THERE IS UNITY,
  • 00:51:37.090 --> 00:51:38.270
  • GOD COMMANDS A BLESSING.
  • 00:51:39.250 --> 00:51:42.250
  • WELL, LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:51:42.250 --> 00:51:43.180
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:51:43.180 --> 00:51:44.080
  • WHERE THERE IS DIVISION,
  • 00:51:44.080 --> 00:51:46.210
  • YOU HAVE A CURSE.
  • 00:51:46.210 --> 00:51:49.050
  • THIS NATION, IN SO MANY WAYS,
  • 00:51:49.050 --> 00:51:51.000
  • IS SUFFERING UNDER THE CURSE
  • 00:51:51.000 --> 00:51:52.210
  • OF DIVISION.
  • 00:51:52.210 --> 00:51:54.280
  • MY PRAYER IS,
  • 00:51:54.280 --> 00:51:55.180
  • "GOD, NOT IN YOUR HOUSE,
  • 00:51:55.180 --> 00:51:58.180
  • NOT WITH YOUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:51:58.180 --> 00:52:01.010
  • NOT WITH YOUR GENERATIONS."
  • 00:52:01.010 --> 00:52:03.260
  • CORNERSTONE,
  • 00:52:03.260 --> 00:52:04.110
  • WE HAVE AN AWESOME
  • 00:52:04.110 --> 00:52:05.010
  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:52:05.010 --> 00:52:07.120
  • THAT RESPONSIBILITY IS
  • 00:52:07.120 --> 00:52:08.160
  • TO WORK UNTIL HE COMES.
  • 00:52:09.090 --> 00:52:12.090
  • AND I KNOW HE'S COMING.
  • 00:52:12.090 --> 00:52:14.220
  • I BELIEVE HE'S COMING SOON.
  • 00:52:14.220 --> 00:52:17.190
  • BUT WHEN HE COMES,
  • 00:52:17.190 --> 00:52:18.190
  • REGARDLESS IF IT'S
  • 00:52:18.190 --> 00:52:19.120
  • IN MY LIFETIME
  • 00:52:19.120 --> 00:52:21.080
  • OR THE LIFETIME OR MY CHILDREN
  • 00:52:21.080 --> 00:52:22.180
  • OR MY GRANDCHILDREN,
  • 00:52:22.180 --> 00:52:25.080
  • IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:52:25.080 --> 00:52:26.220
  • WHILE I AM HERE TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:52:26.220 --> 00:52:28.140
  • THAT THEY KNOW WHO JESUS IS;

  • 00:52:37.060 --> 00:52:39.150

  • TELL THE WORLD WHO JESUS IS.
  • 00:52:55.180 --> 00:52:58.180
  • WOULD YOU GIVE THE LORD
