  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:14.050
  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: TODAY
  • 00:00:14.050 --> 00:00:15.040
  • WE HEAR THE WORDS
  • 00:00:15.040 --> 00:00:16.070
  • THAT DESCRIBE FOUR PEOPLE
  • 00:00:16.070 --> 00:00:18.240
  • THAT OTHERS WOULD CONSIDER TO BE
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:20.030
  • VERY DIFFERENT,
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:20.270
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS THEY HAVE
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:22.220
  • A LOT IN COMMON.
  • 00:00:22.220 --> 00:00:24.120
  • WHEN IT COMES TO WARRIORS,
  • 00:00:24.120 --> 00:00:25.170
  • WINNERS, WHINERS, AND WIMPS,
  • 00:00:25.170 --> 00:00:27.000
  • I KNOW THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE
  • 00:00:27.000 --> 00:00:28.200
  • OF US KNOW PEOPLE
  • 00:00:28.200 --> 00:00:30.120
  • WHO FIT THE DESCRIPTION.
  • 00:00:30.120 --> 00:00:32.120
  • IF THEY'RE NEAR YOU,
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:33.020
  • DON'T POINT.
  • 00:00:33.020 --> 00:00:34.000
  • DON'T EVEN LOOK;
  • 00:00:34.000 --> 00:00:34.250
  • JUST STAY FOCUSED ON ME.
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:37.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:00:37.020 --> 00:00:40.020
  • WE CELEBRATE WARRIORS.
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:42.170
  • WE ENJOY THE WINNER.
  • 00:00:42.170 --> 00:00:45.000
  • WE'RE IRRITATED AND FRUSTRATED
  • 00:00:45.000 --> 00:00:46.260
  • WITH THE WHINER.
  • 00:00:46.260 --> 00:00:48.140
  • AND WHO CAN USE A WIMP?
  • 00:00:48.180 --> 00:00:51.180
  • EACH OF THEM HAVE EARNED
  • 00:00:51.180 --> 00:00:54.030
  • THE TITLE.
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:55.260
  • BUT EACH OF THEM HAVE
  • 00:00:55.260 --> 00:00:57.000
  • THIS THING IN COMMON;
  • 00:00:57.000 --> 00:00:59.010
  • THEY EARNED THE TITLE
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:00.210
  • BASED UPON HOW THEY RESPONDED
  • 00:01:00.210 --> 00:01:03.020
  • TO STRUGGLE.
  • 00:01:03.020 --> 00:01:05.070
  • HOW CAN WE CROWN SOMEONE
  • 00:01:05.070 --> 00:01:06.260
  • A CHAMPION UNLESS WE'VE SEEN
  • 00:01:06.260 --> 00:01:08.200
  • THEM STRUGGLE AND OVERCOME
  • 00:01:08.200 --> 00:01:11.000
  • TO BE A WINNER?
  • 00:01:11.000 --> 00:01:12.180
  • HOW WOULD WE KNOW THE VALOR
  • 00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:13.230
  • AND COURAGE OF A WARRIOR UNLESS
  • 00:01:13.230 --> 00:01:15.140
  • HE'S ENDURED THE ADVERSITY
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:16.280
  • OF THE BATTLE?
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:18.080
  • HOW WILL WE KNOW WHO THE WHINER
  • 00:01:18.080 --> 00:01:19.280
  • IS UNLESS TROUBLE BREAKS OUT
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:21.190
  • AND ALL THEY DO IS COMPLAIN?
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:24.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:26.130
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE WIMP IS
  • 00:01:26.130 --> 00:01:29.030
  • UNTIL YOU SEE THEM
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:29.280
  • PUT THEIR FAITH IN FEAR
  • 00:01:29.280 --> 00:01:31.190
  • AND IGNORE A PROBLEM,
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:32.250
  • HOPING SOMEBODY ELSE IS GOING
  • 00:01:32.250 --> 00:01:34.120
  • TO SOLVE IT?
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:36.040
  • THE REASON THAT I CHOOSE
  • 00:01:36.040 --> 00:01:37.030
  • THESE FOUR CHARACTERS IS BECAUSE
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:39.060
  • I BELIEVE THAT THEY ALL
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:40.250
  • HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:41.280
  • WITH EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US;
  • 00:01:41.280 --> 00:01:43.100
  • AND THAT IS, IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:45.110
  • YOU WILL HAVE STRUGGLE.
  • 00:01:45.110 --> 00:01:48.040
  • JOB SAID IT,
  • 00:01:48.040 --> 00:01:49.100
  • "AS SURELY AS SPARKS FLY UPWARD,
  • 00:01:49.100 --> 00:01:51.060
  • SO IS A MAN BORN TO TROUBLE."
  • 00:01:51.060 --> 00:01:53.060
  • THERE IS NO SHORTAGE
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:54.240
  • OF STRUGGLE IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:57.060
  • TURN ON THE NEWS AND ALL YOU'RE
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:01:58.110
  • GOING TO HEAR THEM REPORT ON
  • 00:01:58.110 --> 00:01:59.220
  • IS STRUGGLE.
  • 00:01:59.220 --> 00:02:00.230
  • THERE'S THE GLOBAL CONFLICT,
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:02.070
  • THE ECONOMIC CONFLICT,
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:03.190
  • THE POLITICAL CONFLICT.
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:05.040
  • THERE'S ALL KINDS OF STRUGGLES,
  • 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:06.230
  • GREAT AND SMALL,
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:07.290
  • IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.190
  • SOME OF YOU IN THIS PLACE TODAY
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:11.010
  • ARE STRUGGLING WITH QUESTIONS
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:12.230
  • THAT YOU NEED AN ANSWER TO AND
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:14.010
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE TO TURN.
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:15.120
  • OTHERS OF YOU ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:02:15.120 --> 00:02:16.160
  • WITH NEEDS AND YOU'RE NOT SURE
  • 00:02:16.160 --> 00:02:17.290
  • HOW THEY'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:18.230
  • PROVIDED FOR.
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:19.230
  • OTHERS OF YOU ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:20.250
  • WITH PROBLEMS THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:02:20.250 --> 00:02:22.180
  • CERTAIN ARE TOO BIG FOR YOU
  • 00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:23.230
  • TO SOLVE.
  • 00:02:23.230 --> 00:02:25.290
  • IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:26.250
  • THERE IS GOING TO BE STRUGGLE.
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:28.040
  • AND WHEN THEY COME,
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:29.040
  • WHAT WILL YOU DO?
  • 00:02:29.040 --> 00:02:30.090
  • WHAT ROLE WILL YOU PLAY?
  • 00:02:30.090 --> 00:02:32.050
  • WILL YOU ENGAGE
  • 00:02:32.050 --> 00:02:33.090
  • LIKE THE WARRIOR?
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:34.110
  • WILL YOU COMPLAIN
  • 00:02:34.110 --> 00:02:35.110
  • LIKE THE WHINER?
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:36.150
  • WILL YOU IGNORE IT
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:37.120
  • LIKE THE WIMP?
  • 00:02:37.120 --> 00:02:38.130
  • OR WILL YOU BE WHAT GOD CREATED
  • 00:02:38.130 --> 00:02:40.140
  • YOU TO BE,
  • 00:02:40.140 --> 00:02:41.090
  • WHICH IS THE WINNER?
  • 00:02:41.090 --> 00:02:42.150
  • YOU WERE BOUGHT WITH THE BLOOD
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:43.230
  • OF JESUS CHRIST SO THAT YOU
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:45.080
  • COULD STAND IN THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:46.270
  • TODAY AND DECLARE,
  • 00:02:46.270 --> 00:02:48.220
  • "I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR
  • 00:02:48.220 --> 00:02:50.260
  • THROUGH CHRIST,
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:51.230
  • WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH."
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:54.160
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:02:59.110
  • THIS MORNING,
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:00.020
  • WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT WHAT
  • 00:03:00.020 --> 00:03:01.140
  • GOD CAN DO WITH A WARRIOR.
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:05.130
  • LET'S READ HEBREWS 11:32
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:08.080
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:03:08.080 --> 00:03:08.210
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY AMEN.
  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:10.090
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:11.130
  • "AND WHAT MORE SHALL I SAY;
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:14.080
  • FOR TIME WOULD FAIL ME
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:16.150
  • TO TELL OF GIDEON, AND BARAK,
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:19.290
  • AND SAMSON, AND JEPHTHAH,
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:22.190
  • ALSO OF DAVID, AND SAMUEL,
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:25.210
  • AND THE PROPHETS,
  • 00:03:25.210 --> 00:03:27.210
  • WHO, THROUGH FAITH,
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:29.030
  • SUBDUED KINGDOMS,
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:30.240
  • WORKED RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:32.140
  • OBTAINED PROMISES,
  • 00:03:32.140 --> 00:03:34.120
  • AND STOPPED THE MOUTHS
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:36.010
  • OF LIONS..."
  • 00:03:36.010 --> 00:03:37.110
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:03:37.110 --> 00:03:39.090
  • LET THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:03:39.090 --> 00:03:41.030
  • IN THIS SANCTUARY TODAY,
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:43.100
  • ENCOURAGE AND INSPIRE
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:44.290
  • THOSE WHO ARE HERE
  • 00:03:44.290 --> 00:03:46.160
  • AND THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING;
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:48.210
  • THAT THE BATTLE THEREIN
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:49.270
  • BELONGS TO THE LORD.
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:52.010
  • AND IF THEY ARE WILLING TO TAKE
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:54.110
  • HIM AT HIS WORD,
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:56.090
  • THEY WILL BE CROWNED
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:57.090
  • CONQUERORS, IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:04:00.100
  • ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:04:00.100 --> 00:04:01.120
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:02.120
  • (Praise the Lord!)
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:03.030
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:04:03.290 --> 00:04:06.290
  • YOU WERE BORN TO WIN.
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:10.150
  • WHEN YOU CAME TO CHRIST JESUS
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:12.070
  • IN FAITH,
  • 00:04:12.070 --> 00:04:13.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:14.020
  • "OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY;
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:16.080
  • BEHOLD, ALL THINGS
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:17.260
  • HAVE BECOME NEW."
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:19.140
  • SO REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU CAME
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:21.070
  • FROM PRIOR TO THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:23.060
  • OF JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:25.010
  • THE DAY YOU RECEIVED HIM
  • 00:04:25.010 --> 00:04:26.160
  • THROUGH FAITH,
  • 00:04:26.160 --> 00:04:27.210
  • BY FAITH,
  • 00:04:27.210 --> 00:04:28.250
  • YOU WERE BORN TO WIN.
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:31.160
  • THIS IS WHAT JESUS SAID
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:32.290
  • IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:33.230
  • HE SAID, "HAVE FAITH IN GOD."
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:37.070
  • WHAT WE JUST READ
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:38.050
  • IN HEBREWS 11:32,
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:40.020
  • IT SAYS, "WHAT MORE SHALL I SAY
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:42.110
  • OF THESE MEN,
  • 00:04:42.110 --> 00:04:43.170
  • WHO BY FAITH,
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:45.080
  • SUBDUED KINGDOMS,
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:46.170
  • STOPPED THE MOUTHS OF LIONS,
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:48.090
  • AND OBTAINED GREAT VICTORIES
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:50.220
  • FOR GOD?"
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:51.210
  • JUDGES IS A GREAT BOOK FOR US
  • 00:04:51.210 --> 00:04:54.050
  • TO TURN TO SEE THE TOPIC OF
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:56.030
  • "WARRIORS, WINNERS,
  • 00:04:56.030 --> 00:04:57.190
  • WHINERS, AND WIMPS."
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:04:59.010
  • WHY?
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:04:59.140
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL THERE.
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:05:01.220
  • NOT ONLY IS JUDGES A GREAT
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:02.290
  • PLACE FOR US TO TURN AND LOOK;
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.200
  • IT HAPPENS TO BE THE PLACE THAT
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:06.020
  • HEBREWS 11:32 IS REFERRING US
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:08.040
  • TO.
  • 00:05:08.040 --> 00:05:09.040
  • GIDEON WAS A JUDGE.
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.080
  • BARAK WAS A JUDGE.
  • 00:05:10.080 --> 00:05:11.120
  • SAMSON WAS A JUDGE.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.180
  • WE'RE FAMILIAR WITH SAMSON.
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:14.040
  • BUT GIDEON WAS A JUDGE,
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:15.270
  • WHO DEFEATED THE AMALEKITES
  • 00:05:15.270 --> 00:05:18.000
  • WHEN GOD INTRODUCES US
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.160
  • TO GIDEON,
  • 00:05:19.160 --> 00:05:20.110
  • THE ANGEL OF THE LORD GOES
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:22.000
  • TO GIDEON, AND SAYS,
  • 00:05:22.000 --> 00:05:23.070
  • "BEHOLD, MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR,
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:25.090
  • THE LORD IS WITH YOU."
  • 00:05:25.090 --> 00:05:26.120
  • AND GIDEON GOES,
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:27.060
  • "WELL IF GOD'S WITH ME,
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.200
  • THEN HOW COME HE'S NOT MOVING?"
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:31.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:33.060
  • BUT IF AN ANGEL'S STANDING
  • 00:05:33.060 --> 00:05:34.060
  • IN FRONT OF YOU,
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:34.280
  • CALLING YOU A MIGHTY MAN
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:36.060
  • OF VALOR,
  • 00:05:36.060 --> 00:05:36.250
  • AND TELLING YOU
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:37.140
  • "GOD IS WITH YOU,"
  • 00:05:37.140 --> 00:05:38.220
  • WHAT ARE YOU WHINING ABOUT?
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:41.180
  • HEBREWS 11, IT TELLS US,
  • 00:05:41.180 --> 00:05:43.120
  • AND WHAT ABOUT BARAK?
  • 00:05:43.120 --> 00:05:45.030
  • WHAT ABOUT THE GUY?
  • 00:05:45.030 --> 00:05:46.130
  • HE WAS A WIMP.
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:48.250
  • GOD TOLD HIM, "BARAK,
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:50.210
  • GO FIGHT GENERAL SISERA."
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:53.110
  • NOW SISERA HAD THE LARGEST ARMY
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:55.250
  • OF CHARIOTS
  • 00:05:55.250 --> 00:05:56.220
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:58.160
  • BUT GOD TOLD BARAK,
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:06:00.070
  • "GO FIGHT SISERA
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:01.220
  • AND YOU WILL WIN."
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:03.210
  • HIS DAD DIDN'T TELL HIM,
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:05.050
  • GO FIGHT HIM.
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:06.070
  • HIS UNCLE DIDN'T TELL HIM,
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:07.140
  • GO FIGHT HIM.
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:08.040
  • HIS PREACHER DIDN'T TELL HIM,
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:09.060
  • GO FIGHT HIM.
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:09.250
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "GOD TOLD HIM,
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:13.040
  • 'GO FIGHT HIM.'"
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.020
  • NOW IF GOD TOLD YOU TO DO
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:15.000
  • SOMETHING,
  • 00:06:15.000 --> 00:06:15.270
  • AND YOU KNEW IT WAS GOD
  • 00:06:15.270 --> 00:06:16.290
  • WHO WAS TELLING YOU,
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:17.210
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD PRETTY
  • 00:06:17.210 --> 00:06:18.200
  • MUCH BELIEVE IT WAS GOING
  • 00:06:18.200 --> 00:06:19.140
  • TO HAPPEN?
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:21.150
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT BARAK DID?
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:22.150
  • HE WIMPED OUT.
  • 00:06:22.150 --> 00:06:24.210
  • HE WAITED UNTIL DEBORAH,
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:26.110
  • THE PROPHETESS, SHOWED UP,
  • 00:06:26.110 --> 00:06:28.070
  • AND SHE LOOKS AT HIM, AND SAYS,
  • 00:06:28.070 --> 00:06:29.200
  • "GOD HAS ALREADY TOLD YOU
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:31.180
  • TO DO THIS."
  • 00:06:31.180 --> 00:06:33.170
  • SHE -- SHE CALLED HIM OUT.
  • 00:06:34.010 --> 00:06:37.010
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID?
  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:38.150
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:39.020
  • "I'LL GO IF YOU GO WITH ME."
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:40.180
  • WIMP.
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:41.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:43.060
  • SO DEBORAH LOOKS AT BARAK
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:44.080
  • AND SHE SAYS, LET'S GO.
  • 00:06:44.170 --> 00:06:47.170
  • HE WAS A WINNER BUT HE STARTED
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:49.000
  • OUT AS A WIMP.
  • 00:06:49.000 --> 00:06:50.200
  • SAMSON, HE'S A WARRIOR,
  • 00:06:50.200 --> 00:06:52.280
  • BUT HE FORGOT WHERE HIS STRENGTH
  • 00:06:52.280 --> 00:06:54.080
  • CAME FROM.
  • 00:06:54.080 --> 00:06:56.060
  • AND EVERY WARRIOR,
  • 00:06:56.060 --> 00:06:57.090
  • WHO FORGETS WHERE THEIR STRENGTH
  • 00:06:57.090 --> 00:06:58.130
  • COMES FROM,
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:06:59.060
  • I ASSURE YOU WILL NOT WIN.
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:02.110
  • BUT WE LOOK AT THE BOOK
  • 00:07:02.110 --> 00:07:03.020
  • OF JUDGES,
  • 00:07:03.020 --> 00:07:03.180
  • NOT ONLY BECAUSE WE SEE
  • 00:07:03.180 --> 00:07:04.200
  • THE PARALLELS IMPERSONALIZED;
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:06.070
  • WE LOOK AT THE BOOK OF JUDGES
  • 00:07:06.070 --> 00:07:07.080
  • BECAUSE WE SEE THE PARALLEL
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:09.100
  • IN THE WORLD WE LIVE IN TODAY.
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:11.190
  • YOU SEE JUDGES WAS A BAD RUT
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:14.120
  • THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:15.200
  • WERE IN.
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:16.220
  • AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE WORLD
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:17.250
  • THAT WE LIVE IN TODAY,
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:19.120
  • IN MANY WAYS,
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:20.080
  • WE ARE IN A PRETTY BAD RUT.
  • 00:07:21.120 --> 00:07:24.120
  • SO WHAT DO YOU DO
  • 00:07:24.120 --> 00:07:25.210
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN A RUT?
  • 00:07:25.210 --> 00:07:27.080
  • FIRST,
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:27.290
  • LET'S CONSIDER WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:07:27.290 --> 00:07:29.120
  • WHENEVER IT CAME TO THE TIME
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:30.170
  • OF JUDGES.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:32.030
  • JUDGES 2 GIVES US SOME INSIGHT.
  • 00:07:32.030 --> 00:07:34.130
  • CHAPTER 2 AND VERSE 10,
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:35.170
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:36.050
  • "NOW WHEN THAT GENERATION
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:37.080
  • HAD BEEN GATHERED
  • 00:07:37.080 --> 00:07:38.120
  • TO THEIR FATHERS..."
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:39.170
  • WHAT GENERATION WAS THE BIBLE
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:40.250
  • SPEAKING OF?
  • 00:07:40.250 --> 00:07:41.170
  • IT WAS SPEAKING OF JOSHUA
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:43.020
  • AND CALEB,
  • 00:07:43.020 --> 00:07:44.010
  • THE YOUNG MEN WHO SPIED OUT
  • 00:07:44.010 --> 00:07:45.120
  • THE LAND,
  • 00:07:45.120 --> 00:07:46.060
  • WHO ENDURED THE WILDERNESS,
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:47.140
  • WHO CONQUERED THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:07:47.140 --> 00:07:49.060
  • THESE TWO MEN WERE WARRIORS
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:50.230
  • FOR GOD.
  • 00:07:50.230 --> 00:07:51.100
  • JOSHUA TOLD HIS GENERATION,
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:53.180
  • "IF IT SEEMS RIGHT TO YOU
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:54.290
  • TO SERVE OTHER GODS,
  • 00:07:54.290 --> 00:07:56.040
  • GO DO IT.
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:56.270
  • BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE,
  • 00:07:56.270 --> 00:07:58.290
  • WE SERVE THE LORD."
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.280
  • HE WAS A WARRIOR.
  • 00:08:00.280 --> 00:08:02.190
  • AND WHEN THAT WARRIOR DIED,
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:04.120
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:06.030
  • ANOTHER GENERATION AROSE
  • 00:08:06.030 --> 00:08:07.180
  • AFTER HIM THAT DID NOT KNOW GOD,
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:10.140
  • NOR THE WORK THAT GOD
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.210
  • HAD DONE IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:08:11.210 --> 00:08:14.100
  • NOW THE THING THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:15.040
  • TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS VERSE
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:17.130
  • IS THAT IT WASN'T THAT
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:18.110
  • THEY WERE IGNORANT OF GOD.
  • 00:08:18.110 --> 00:08:20.290
  • IT WASN'T THAT THESE CHILDREN
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:22.100
  • OF ISRAEL DIDN'T KNOW HOW GREAT
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:24.080
  • GRANDFATHER GOT OUT OF EGYPT
  • 00:08:24.080 --> 00:08:26.100
  • AND THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW JOSHUA
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:28.030
  • GOT ACROSS THE JORDAN.
  • 00:08:28.030 --> 00:08:29.140
  • THEY HAD ALL OF THE REMINDERS
  • 00:08:29.140 --> 00:08:31.130
  • THEY NEEDED.
  • 00:08:31.130 --> 00:08:32.090
  • THERE WERE TWELVE STONES SET IN
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:34.180
  • THE JORDAN RIVER TO REMIND THEM
  • 00:08:34.180 --> 00:08:36.090
  • THAT GOD ROLLED THE WATERS BACK
  • 00:08:36.090 --> 00:08:38.020
  • TO THE RIGHT AND LEFT.
  • 00:08:38.020 --> 00:08:39.060
  • THERE WAS A PILE OF RUBBLE
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:40.200
  • AT A PLACE CALLED JERICHO
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:42.090
  • THAT REMINDED THEM THAT GOD HAD
  • 00:08:42.090 --> 00:08:43.270
  • BROUGHT THOSE WALLS DOWN
  • 00:08:43.270 --> 00:08:45.030
  • WITH A SHOUT.
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:45.280
  • THIS GENERATION KNEW
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:47.250
  • WHO GOD WAS;
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:49.000
  • THEY JUST ACTED LIKE
  • 00:08:49.000 --> 00:08:50.050
  • GOD DIDN'T EXIST.
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:52.120
  • WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHO KNOWS
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:54.180
  • WHO GOD IS.
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:55.210
  • WE JUST CHOOSE TO ACT LIKE
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:57.010
  • GOD DOESN'T EXIST.
  • 00:08:57.010 --> 00:08:59.170
  • WE KNOW HOW GOD BROUGHT
  • 00:08:59.170 --> 00:09:00.290
  • OUR GREAT GRANDPARENTS THROUGH
  • 00:09:00.290 --> 00:09:02.180
  • A TIME OF FINANCIAL STRUGGLE
  • 00:09:02.180 --> 00:09:04.040
  • IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:05.110
  • INTO AN ERA OF PROSPERITY.
  • 00:09:05.110 --> 00:09:07.100
  • BUT WE'VE USED THE PROSPERITY
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:09.000
  • THAT HE GAVE TO THEM
  • 00:09:09.000 --> 00:09:10.120
  • TO ALMOST DESTROY OURSELVES.
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:13.270
  • WE KNOW HOW THE GREAT GENERATION
  • 00:09:13.270 --> 00:09:16.000
  • FOUGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM,
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:17.140
  • BUT NOW WE'VE TAKEN THE LIBERTY
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:19.000
  • THAT THEY DEFENDED,
  • 00:09:19.000 --> 00:09:20.050
  • AND WE'VE USED IT TO ALMOST
  • 00:09:20.050 --> 00:09:22.030
  • DESTROY THE COUNTRY WE LIVE IN.
  • 00:09:22.130 --> 00:09:25.130
  • HOW?
  • 00:09:25.130 --> 00:09:26.200
  • NOT BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:27.250
  • WHO GOD IS.
  • 00:09:27.250 --> 00:09:29.170
  • WE'VE JUST BEHAVED AS IF
  • 00:09:29.170 --> 00:09:30.220
  • GOD DOESN'T EXIST.
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:32.190
  • WE'VE FORGOTTEN WHERE
  • 00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:33.210
  • OUR BLESSINGS COME FROM.
  • 00:09:33.210 --> 00:09:35.170
  • WE'VE FORGOTTEN THAT WE ARE
  • 00:09:35.170 --> 00:09:37.060
  • THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE
  • 00:09:37.060 --> 00:09:38.290
  • AND THAT HE IS THE LORD OUR GOD.
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:41.140
  • WE HAVE FORGOTTEN ALL THINGS
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:43.100
  • GREAT AND SMALL,
  • 00:09:43.100 --> 00:09:44.190
  • ALL THINGS GOOD COME FROM HIM.
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:48.210
  • THE FOOD YOU EAT,
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:49.290
  • GOD DID THAT.
  • 00:09:49.290 --> 00:09:51.150
  • THE HOUSE YOU LIVE IN,
  • 00:09:51.150 --> 00:09:52.260
  • GOD GAVE THAT.
  • 00:09:52.260 --> 00:09:54.070
  • THE STRENGTH YOU HAVE TO GO
  • 00:09:54.070 --> 00:09:55.160
  • TO WORK,
  • 00:09:55.160 --> 00:09:56.060
  • GOD POURED IT OUT ON YOU.
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:09:57.190
  • THE BREATH YOU BREATHE,
  • 00:09:57.190 --> 00:09:58.290
  • GOD GIVES IT TO YOU.
  • 00:09:58.290 --> 00:10:00.130
  • THE WAY YOUR HEART BEATS,
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:01.260
  • GOD DESIGNED THAT.
  • 00:10:02.140 --> 00:10:05.140
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:05.140 --> 00:10:07.270
  • THE TIME OF THE JUDGES WAS NOT
  • 00:10:07.270 --> 00:10:09.020
  • ONLY A TIME WHEN PEOPLE
  • 00:10:09.020 --> 00:10:10.080
  • FORGOT GOD,
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.070
  • BUT MEN WERE A LAW
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:12.140
  • UNTO THEMSELVES;
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:13.110
  • AND THEREFORE, THERE WAS NO LAW.
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:16.180
  • WHENEVER PEOPLE CAST OFF
  • 00:10:16.180 --> 00:10:18.240
  • THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:20.100
  • LAWLESSNESS ABOUNDS.
  • 00:10:20.100 --> 00:10:21.220
  • AND YOU LOOK IN THE WORLD
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:22.140
  • WE LIVE IN TODAY,
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:23.160
  • AND WE LIVE IN A LAWLESS
  • 00:10:23.160 --> 00:10:25.070
  • SOCIETY.
  • 00:10:25.070 --> 00:10:28.000
  • THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:29.220
  • NOT ONLY SUFFERED IN SOCIAL
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:30.280
  • CHAOS,
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:31.150
  • BUT THERE WAS A TREMENDOUS
  • 00:10:31.150 --> 00:10:32.220
  • POLITICAL STRUGGLE.
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:33.150
  • DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR?
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:36.150
  • WHY WAS THERE POLITICAL
  • 00:10:36.150 --> 00:10:37.120
  • STRUGGLE?
  • 00:10:37.120 --> 00:10:38.030
  • BECAUSE OF THE DISOBEDIENCE
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:39.170
  • OF THE RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:41.190
  • WHY IS THERE POLITICAL STRUGGLE
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:43.120
  • IN THE UNITED STATES TODAY?
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:44.210
  • NOT BECAUSE WE'VE GOT
  • 00:10:44.210 --> 00:10:45.200
  • A TWO-PARTY SYSTEM.
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:47.060
  • THERE IS POLITICAL STRUGGLE

  • IF YOU VOTE YOUR BIBLE
  • 00:10:59.180 --> 00:11:01.090

  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: THE CHILDREN
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:13.040
  • OF ISRAEL WERE GIVEN
  • 00:12:13.040 --> 00:12:14.030
  • ONE COMMAND WHEN THEY WENT
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:15.020
  • INTO THE PROMISED LAND,
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:15.200
  • AND THAT WAS,
  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:16.090
  • "DRIVE OUT ALL
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:18.070
  • OF THE INHABITANTS."
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:19.050
  • HOW MANY WERE THEY SUPPOSED
  • 00:12:19.050 --> 00:12:20.090
  • TO DRIVE OUT?
  • 00:12:20.090 --> 00:12:21.140
  • ALL.
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:23.080
  • AND SO THE ANGEL OF THE LORD
  • 00:12:23.080 --> 00:12:24.100
  • COMES TO THEM, AND SAYS,
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:25.150
  • "BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT DONE
  • 00:12:25.150 --> 00:12:27.050
  • THIS, GOD SAYS,
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:29.250
  • 'I WILL NOT DRIVE THEM OUT
  • 00:12:29.250 --> 00:12:32.020
  • BEFORE YOU,
  • 00:12:32.020 --> 00:12:33.180
  • BUT THEY SHALL BE THORNS
  • 00:12:33.180 --> 00:12:35.070
  • IN YOUR SIDE.
  • 00:12:35.070 --> 00:12:37.200
  • AND THEIR GOD SHALL BE A SNARE
  • 00:12:37.200 --> 00:12:39.260
  • UNTO YOU.'"
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:41.180
  • AND SO FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS,
  • 00:12:41.180 --> 00:12:43.050
  • ISRAEL IS CAUGHT IN THIS RUT.
  • 00:12:43.200 --> 00:12:46.200
  • I'M CONVINCED THAT THE DATES
  • 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:49.080
  • AT THE TOP OF THE NEWSPAPERS
  • 00:12:49.080 --> 00:12:50.100
  • CHANGE,
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:51.040
  • BUT THE HEADLINES REALLY DON'T.
  • 00:12:51.040 --> 00:12:54.030
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAID THIS
  • 00:12:54.030 --> 00:12:55.180
  • THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO
  • 00:12:55.180 --> 00:12:56.260
  • AND IT'S VERY TRUE TODAY,
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:58.060
  • "RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION,
  • 00:12:58.060 --> 00:13:00.140
  • BUT SIN IS A REPROACH
  • 00:13:00.140 --> 00:13:02.020
  • TO MANY PEOPLE."
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:03.130
  • "WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:13:03.130 --> 00:13:04.020
  • ARE IN AUTHORITY,
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:04.250
  • THE PEOPLE REJOICE.
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:05.230
  • WHEN THE WICKED RULE,
  • 00:13:05.230 --> 00:13:07.020
  • THE PEOPLE GROAN."
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:08.100
  • THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO,
  • 00:13:08.100 --> 00:13:09.280
  • ISRAEL WAS IN A RUT.
  • 00:13:09.280 --> 00:13:11.140
  • AND TODAY, WE IN MANY WAYS,
  • 00:13:11.140 --> 00:13:14.010
  • ARE IN THE SAME.
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:15.240
  • THEY HAD SOCIAL CHAOS.
  • 00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:17.140
  • WE HAVE SOCIAL CHAOS.
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:19.290
  • THEIR ENEMIES AND ADVERSARIES
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:21.180
  • LED THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:22.130
  • INTO CAPTIVITY.
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:23.210
  • AND BELIEVE ME;
  • 00:13:23.210 --> 00:13:24.260
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THIS NATION
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:26.150
  • WHO WANT TO CONTROL EVERYTHING
  • 00:13:26.150 --> 00:13:28.150
  • YOUR CHILDREN WILL EVER DO.
  • 00:13:29.030 --> 00:13:32.030
  • WE'RE SHOCKED WHENEVER WE SEND
  • 00:13:32.030 --> 00:13:34.000
  • OUR KIDS TO A GODLESS
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:35.040
  • EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM,
  • 00:13:35.040 --> 00:13:36.150
  • AND THEN THEY HAVE A GODLESS
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.200
  • CULTURE IN THEIR ADULTHOOD.
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:40.130
  • IT'S A RUT.
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:42.060
  • IT'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE UNTIL
  • 00:13:42.060 --> 00:13:43.160
  • YOU ENGAGE AND MAKE IT CHANGE.
  • 00:13:43.160 --> 00:13:46.100
  • WE'RE STUNNED WHEN THE NEXT
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:47.160
  • GENERATION DOESN'T VALUE FAMILY.
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:50.030
  • BUT THEN WE LOOK BACK,
  • 00:13:50.030 --> 00:13:51.010
  • AND FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS,
  • 00:13:51.010 --> 00:13:52.120
  • WE'VE DESTROYED THE FAMILY
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:54.020
  • WITH SELFISHNESS AND DIVORCE.
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:57.060
  • WE'RE SHOCKED WHEN OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:13:57.060 --> 00:13:58.280
  • DON'T WANT TO GO TO WORK;
  • 00:13:58.280 --> 00:14:00.090
  • THEY JUST WANT TO BORROW
  • 00:14:00.090 --> 00:14:01.090
  • AND BUY.
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:04.230
  • BUT THAT'S WHAT WE'VE TAUGHT
  • 00:14:04.230 --> 00:14:05.170
  • THEM TO DO.
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:07.070
  • IT'S A RUT.
  • 00:14:07.070 --> 00:14:09.200
  • HOW DO YOU GET OUT OF A RUT?
  • 00:14:09.250 --> 00:14:12.250
  • FIRST, YOU HAVE TO STOP ACTING
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:14.120
  • LIKE GOD DOESN'T EXIST.
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:16.240
  • YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER
  • 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:17.170
  • THAT THIS BOOK IS NOT FILLED
  • 00:14:17.170 --> 00:14:19.150
  • WITH FREE ADVICE.
  • 00:14:19.150 --> 00:14:20.210
  • THIS BOOK IS FILLED WITH TRUTH,
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:22.150
  • AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:26.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:26.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO STOP WHINING
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:28.120
  • ABOUT WHAT YOU WISH
  • 00:14:28.120 --> 00:14:29.170
  • WOULD CHANGE.
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:30.110
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO STOP IGNORING
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:32.030
  • WHAT YOU'RE TOO AFRAID
  • 00:14:32.030 --> 00:14:33.100
  • TO CHANGE.
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:34.020
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO DECIDE THAT
  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:35.070
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE A WARRIOR
  • 00:14:35.070 --> 00:14:37.010
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:14:37.010 --> 00:14:38.000
  • A CHANGE.
  • 00:14:38.000 --> 00:14:39.170
  • AND YOU'VE HEARD PASTOR HAGEE
  • 00:14:39.170 --> 00:14:40.220
  • SAY THIS.
  • 00:14:40.220 --> 00:14:41.170
  • IT WAS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:42.150
  • HAVE BEEN ETCHED IN THE WALL
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:43.200
  • AT MY HOUSE AS A CHILD,
  • 00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:45.000
  • "YOU CANNOT CHANGE WHAT YOU
  • 00:14:45.000 --> 00:14:47.020
  • WILL NOT CONFRONT."
  • 00:14:47.030 --> 00:14:50.030
  • IGNORING THE PROBLEM
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:51.120
  • DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:52.240
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:54.020
  • BIG PROBLEMS OR SMALL PROBLEMS;
  • 00:14:54.020 --> 00:14:56.020
  • YOU CAN'T IGNORE THEM,
  • 00:14:56.020 --> 00:14:58.120
  • WHICH MEANS YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE
  • 00:14:58.120 --> 00:14:59.110
  • UP YOUR MIND TO BE A WARRIOR,
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:03.160
  • BECAUSE WARRIORS WHO HAVE THE
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:05.120
  • ABILITY TO USE GOD'S STRENGTH,
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.290
  • BECOME WINNERS,
  • 00:15:07.290 --> 00:15:10.030
  • BUT WHINERS AND WIMPS NEVER DO.
  • 00:15:10.030 --> 00:15:12.240
  • WARRIORS HAVE AN ATTITUDE
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.290
  • THAT IS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:16.090
  • THE NUMBER OF THE ENEMY.
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:18.260
  • THEY DON'T SAY,
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:19.150
  • "HOW MANY ARE THEY?"
  • 00:15:19.150 --> 00:15:21.020
  • THEY SAY, "WHERE ARE THEY?"
  • 00:15:21.150 --> 00:15:24.150
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:27.230
  • YOU HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND
  • 00:15:27.230 --> 00:15:29.240
  • TO BE A WARRIOR.
  • 00:15:29.240 --> 00:15:31.170
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FEEL YOUR
  • 00:15:31.170 --> 00:15:32.250
  • WAY INTO BEING A WARRIOR;
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:34.130
  • YOU'LL CHOOSE TO BE A WARRIOR.
  • 00:15:34.130 --> 00:15:37.110
  • "CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY,"
  • 00:15:37.110 --> 00:15:39.030
  • THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:15:39.030 --> 00:15:41.260
  • AND THERE'S THREE THINGS
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:43.040
  • THAT EVERY WARRIOR NEEDS.
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:46.140
  • FIRST,
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:47.260
  • EVERY WARRIOR MUST REMEMBER
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:50.000
  • WHAT HE'S FIGHTING FOR.
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:53.130
  • IN OUR TEXT TODAY, IT SAYS,
  • 00:15:53.130 --> 00:15:54.240
  • "WHAT MORE SHALL I SAY?"
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:56.080
  • AND ON THE LIST OF WARRIORS
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:57.170
  • IS KING DAVID.
  • 00:15:57.170 --> 00:15:59.270
  • BUT WHEN WE FIRST MEET
  • 00:15:59.270 --> 00:16:00.290
  • KING DAVID,
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:01.170
  • HE'S JUST A BOY.
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:03.140
  • AND IN 1 SAMUEL 17:29,
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:06.080
  • HE'S STANDING ON THE HILLSIDE
  • 00:16:06.080 --> 00:16:08.230
  • OVERLOOKING THE VALLEY OF ELAH.
  • 00:16:08.230 --> 00:16:10.190
  • AND THERE IS GOLIATH DOWN
  • 00:16:10.190 --> 00:16:12.040
  • IN THE BOTTOM OF THE VALLEY.
  • 00:16:12.040 --> 00:16:14.050
  • AND GOLIATH IS MOCKING GOD.
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:16.080
  • AND GOLIATH IS TAUNTING ISRAEL.
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:18.150
  • AND GOLIATH HAS AN OFFER.
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:20.090
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:16:20.090 --> 00:16:20.270
  • "SEND A MAN DOWN TO FACE ME.
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:23.000
  • AND IF HE BEATS ME,
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:24.140
  • WE'LL BE YOUR SLAVES.
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:25.280
  • BUT IF I BEAT HIM,
  • 00:16:25.280 --> 00:16:27.160
  • YOU WILL BE OUR SLAVES."
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:30.120
  • WITH THIS THREAT,
  • 00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:31.130
  • DAVID KNOWS THAT THE FUTURE OF
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:33.110
  • HIS LIFE IS IN GOLIATH'S HANDS;
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:36.130
  • THAT GOLIATH WANTS TO ENSLAVE
  • 00:16:36.130 --> 00:16:38.010
  • HIM.
  • 00:16:38.010 --> 00:16:38.190
  • GOLIATH WANTS TO TAKE HIM OFF
  • 00:16:38.190 --> 00:16:40.260
  • AND USE HIM FOR HIS OWN PURPOSE
  • 00:16:40.260 --> 00:16:43.020
  • RATHER THAN LEAVE HIM HOME AND
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:44.190
  • LET HIM LIVE OUT GOD'S PURPOSE.
  • 00:16:44.220 --> 00:16:47.220
  • AND SUDDENLY DAVID IS FILLED
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:49.070
  • WITH COURAGE.
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:49.240
  • WHY?
  • 00:16:49.240 --> 00:16:50.170
  • BECAUSE HE REMEMBERED
  • 00:16:50.170 --> 00:16:51.260
  • WHAT HE WAS FIGHTING FOR.
  • 00:16:51.260 --> 00:16:54.030
  • IN 1 SAMUEL 17:29,
  • 00:16:54.030 --> 00:16:55.290
  • HE LOOKS AT HIS OLDER BROTHER,
  • 00:16:55.290 --> 00:16:57.130
  • AND HE ASKS THE QUESTION,
  • 00:16:57.130 --> 00:16:58.280
  • "IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?"
  • 00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:02.190
  • IS THERE NOT A CAUSE FOR US
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:04.170
  • TO STAND UP AGAINST THIS GIANT?
  • 00:17:04.170 --> 00:17:07.100
  • HAS GOD BROUGHT US OUT OF EGYPT
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:09.070
  • JUST TO HAND US OVER
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:10.050
  • TO THIS JERK?
  • 00:17:10.050 --> 00:17:12.140
  • HAS HE USED ALL OF THE MIGHTY
  • 00:17:12.140 --> 00:17:13.280
  • MEN OF THE PAST AND ALL OF THE
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:15.110
  • MIRACLES THAT WE'VE SEEN HAPPEN?
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:17.010
  • DID HE BRING US ACROSS THE
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:18.070
  • RED SEA AND FEED US WITH MANNA,
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:20.040
  • AND SEND DOWN THE FIRE,
  • 00:17:20.040 --> 00:17:21.100
  • AND BRING WATER FROM THE ROCK
  • 00:17:21.100 --> 00:17:22.280
  • JUST SO HE COULD HAND US
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.090
  • TO GOLIATH?
  • 00:17:24.090 --> 00:17:26.130
  • "IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?"
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:29.070
  • DAD, WHEN IT COMES TIME TO FIGHT
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:31.010
  • FOR YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:17:31.010 --> 00:17:32.030
  • REMEMBER WHAT YOU'RE FIGHTING
  • 00:17:32.030 --> 00:17:33.100
  • FOR.
  • 00:17:33.100 --> 00:17:33.270
  • IS THERE NOT A CAUSE TO SEE
  • 00:17:33.270 --> 00:17:35.130
  • YOUR CHILDREN GROW UP
  • 00:17:35.130 --> 00:17:36.190
  • IN THE FEAR AND THE ADMONITION
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:37.230
  • OF THE LORD?
  • 00:17:37.230 --> 00:17:39.050
  • WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR WIFE
  • 00:17:39.050 --> 00:17:40.130
  • AND YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:17:40.130 --> 00:17:41.220
  • REMEMBER WHAT YOU'RE FIGHTING
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:42.270
  • FOR.
  • 00:17:42.270 --> 00:17:43.140
  • YOU'RE NOT FIGHTING FOR
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:44.180
  • THE VICTORY IN YOUR ARGUMENT.
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:46.140
  • YOU CAN'T STAY MARRIED WINNING
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:48.100
  • ARGUMENTS.
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:50.190
  • YOU STAY MARRIED LEARNING
  • 00:17:50.190 --> 00:17:52.110
  • TO LOVE THE WAY THAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:55.230
  • I KNOW PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:56.130
  • "I'M GOING TO GO HOME
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:57.010
  • AND WIN THE FIGHT."
  • 00:17:57.010 --> 00:17:57.280
  • YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE THE WAR.
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:00.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:00.050 --> 00:18:01.130
  • AND THE WAR IS NOT
  • 00:18:01.130 --> 00:18:02.060
  • WITH YOUR SPOUSE;
  • 00:18:02.060 --> 00:18:03.010
  • THE WAR IS WITH HEAVENLY PLACES
  • 00:18:03.010 --> 00:18:05.040
  • THAT WANT TO DESTROY
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:06.060
  • YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:18:06.060 --> 00:18:08.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:15.070
  • THE SECOND THING EVERY WARRIOR
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:17.070
  • NEEDS IS A BATTLE PLAN.
  • 00:18:18.010 --> 00:18:21.010
  • DON'T GO TO WAR WITHOUT
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:22.180
  • A BATTLE PLAN.
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.240
  • WARRIORS WITHOUT BATTLE PLANS
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.210
  • ARE CASUALTIES.
  • 00:18:27.010 --> 00:18:30.010
  • BUT A BATTLE PLAN IS HOW YOU
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:32.030
  • BECOME A WINNER.
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:34.030
  • WHEN YOU READ THE STORY
  • 00:18:34.030 --> 00:18:35.030
  • OF DAVID AND GOLIATH,
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:36.030
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT DAVID WENT
  • 00:18:36.030 --> 00:18:37.110
  • TO THE CREEK AND HE PICKED
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:38.230
  • FIVE SMOOTH STONES.
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:42.040
  • NOW NOTHING IS IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:18:42.040 --> 00:18:43.220
  • WITHOUT A REASON.
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:45.180
  • SO WHY FIVE SMOOTH STONES?
  • 00:18:45.180 --> 00:18:47.170
  • WAS THIS JUST IN CASE HE
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:48.140
  • MISSED?
  • 00:18:48.140 --> 00:18:50.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:51.120
  • BIBLE SCHOLARS WILL TELL YOU
  • 00:18:51.190 --> 00:18:54.190
  • THAT GOLIATH HAD FOUR BROTHERS.
  • 00:18:55.050 --> 00:18:58.050
  • SO FIVE STONES WAS ONE FOR
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:19:00.060
  • GOLIATH AND THEN ENOUGH AMMO
  • 00:19:00.060 --> 00:19:02.130
  • FOR THE REST OF THE FAMILY.
  • 00:19:02.130 --> 00:19:05.130
  • DAVID WAS SENDING A MESSAGE.
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:07.170
  • I'M NOT COMING DOWN THERE
  • 00:19:07.170 --> 00:19:08.290
  • TO START A FIGHT;
  • 00:19:08.290 --> 00:19:09.240
  • I'M COMING DOWN THERE
  • 00:19:09.240 --> 00:19:10.170
  • TO FINISH A FIGHT.
  • 00:19:10.200 --> 00:19:13.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:16.130
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SOLVE
  • 00:19:16.130 --> 00:19:17.110
  • YOUR MARRIAGE PROBLEM
  • 00:19:17.110 --> 00:19:18.220
  • WITHOUT A BATTLE PLAN.
  • 00:19:18.220 --> 00:19:20.240
  • TURN THAT MARRIAGE OVER
  • 00:19:20.240 --> 00:19:22.050
  • TO THE LORD.
  • 00:19:22.050 --> 00:19:22.240
  • USE GOD'S WORD TO DECIDE
  • 00:19:22.240 --> 00:19:24.210
  • HOW YOU'RE GOING TO RUN
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:25.190
  • AND RULE YOUR HOME,
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.250
  • BECAUSE THAT'S AN EFFECTIVE
  • 00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:28.230
  • BATTLE PLAN.
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:30.030
  • I WANT TO GIVE YOU ANOTHER
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:30.270
  • THOUGHT ON DAVID
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:31.250
  • AND HIS SMOOTH STONES.
  • 00:19:31.250 --> 00:19:34.140
  • I'VE OFTEN THOUGHT,
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:35.170
  • HOW COULD A KING TRUST A KID
  • 00:19:35.270 --> 00:19:38.270
  • WITH THE KINGDOM?
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:41.020
  • WAS SAUL SO UPSET ABOUT GOLIATH
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:43.260
  • THAT HE WAS WILLING TO SAY,
  • 00:19:43.260 --> 00:19:44.280
  • HEY, WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOSE?
  • 00:19:44.280 --> 00:19:46.130
  • JUST SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO, SON.
  • 00:19:46.280 --> 00:19:49.280
  • AND WHEN YOU LOOK IN HISTORY,
  • 00:19:49.280 --> 00:19:51.120
  • IT MAKES MORE SENSE WHAT WAS
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:53.030
  • HAPPENING IN THE BATTLE
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:54.070
  • IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH.
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.240
  • YOU SEE, IN ANCIENT TIMES,
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:58.050
  • WARRING ARMIES WOULD FIGHT
  • 00:19:58.050 --> 00:19:59.240
  • DUALS.
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:00.180
  • IT WAS MORE EFFICIENT.
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:02.240
  • BETTER TO HAVE TWO MEN,
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:04.080
  • ONE FROM EACH ARMY,
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:05.140
  • FIGHT EACH OTHER;
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:06.190
  • AND THE WINNER DETERMINE
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:07.220
  • THE OUTCOME,
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:08.210
  • THAN TO LOSE THOUSANDS OF MEN
  • 00:20:08.210 --> 00:20:11.030
  • WHO YOU NEEDED TO GO HOME
  • 00:20:11.030 --> 00:20:12.160
  • AND PLANT CROPS, BUILD HOUSES,
  • 00:20:12.160 --> 00:20:14.010
  • AND BE FATHERS.
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:16.070
  • SO IN THIS SITUATION,
  • 00:20:16.070 --> 00:20:17.090
  • THE PHILISTINES PUT UP
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:18.110
  • THEIR CHAMPION, GOLIATH.
  • 00:20:18.110 --> 00:20:20.180
  • AND THE ISRAELITES DON'T HAVE
  • 00:20:20.180 --> 00:20:21.260
  • ANYONE WHO CAN MATCH HIM.
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:24.070
  • AND DAVID WAS IN THE ARTILLERY
  • 00:20:24.070 --> 00:20:26.020
  • BRIGADE.
  • 00:20:26.020 --> 00:20:27.070
  • HE WASN'T IN THE INFANTRY
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:28.100
  • BRIGADE.
  • 00:20:28.100 --> 00:20:28.280
  • HE HAD A SLINGSHOT.
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:31.180
  • AND HE WENT TO KING SAUL
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:33.030
  • WITH A BATTLE PLAN.
  • 00:20:33.030 --> 00:20:35.180
  • HE SAID, HEY,
  • 00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:37.100
  • ALL THESE GUYS ARE TERRIFIED
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:38.250
  • TO GO STAND NEXT TO OLD BUZZARD
  • 00:20:38.250 --> 00:20:40.050
  • BREATH.
  • 00:20:40.050 --> 00:20:41.270
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:42.290
  • BUT RATHER THAN GO TOE TO TOE
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:44.100
  • WITH THAT GUY,
  • 00:20:44.100 --> 00:20:45.100
  • LET ME COME UP WITH A PLAN
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:47.040
  • THAT HE CAN'T BEAT.
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:48.250
  • I'M GOING TO STAND WAY BACK
  • 00:20:48.250 --> 00:20:51.070
  • AND I'M GOING TO LET THESE ROCKS
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:52.140
  • GO.
  • 00:20:52.140 --> 00:20:53.230
  • AND I'M GOING TO HIT HIM IN THE
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:54.220
  • HEAD BEFORE HE CAN GET A HOLD
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:56.040
  • OF ME.
  • 00:20:56.040 --> 00:20:57.120
  • AND THEN WHEN I KNOCK HIM OUT,
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:58.200
  • WE'LL WIN.
  • 00:20:58.200 --> 00:21:00.220
  • ONLY THEN,
  • 00:21:00.220 --> 00:21:01.280
  • WHEN KING SAUL HEARD A BETTER
  • 00:21:01.280 --> 00:21:04.030
  • BATTLE PLAN,
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:05.030
  • DID THE KING TURN THE KINGDOM
  • 00:21:05.030 --> 00:21:06.290
  • OVER TO THE KID.
  • 00:21:06.290 --> 00:21:09.120
  • IT WASN'T JUST DUMB LUCK.
  • 00:21:09.120 --> 00:21:11.240
  • THE STORY OF DAVID AND GOLIATH
  • 00:21:11.240 --> 00:21:13.100
  • IS NOT THE WEAK VERSUS
  • 00:21:13.100 --> 00:21:14.120
  • THE STRONG.
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:15.070
  • THE STORY OF DAVID AND GOLIATH
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:16.260
  • IS THE INTELLIGENCE OF GOD
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:18.150
  • BEING POURED OUT
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:19.080
  • ON HIS CHILDREN TO GO FACE
  • 00:21:19.080 --> 00:21:20.260
  • AN IGNORANT GIANT
  • 00:21:20.260 --> 00:21:22.000
  • THAT NEEDS TO GO AWAY.
  • 00:21:22.000 --> 00:21:24.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:27.250 --> 00:21:30.250
  • SO HOW DOES THAT APPLY TO
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:31.230
  • OUR LIFE?
  • 00:21:31.230 --> 00:21:33.120
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:34.190
  • AN ENEMY.
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:35.050
  • HE IS THE SERPENT OF OLD.
  • 00:21:35.050 --> 00:21:36.200
  • THE BIBLE CALLS HIM
  • 00:21:36.200 --> 00:21:37.180
  • "THE DEVIL."
  • 00:21:37.180 --> 00:21:39.190
  • AND HE'S REAL REGARDLESS
  • 00:21:39.190 --> 00:21:41.130
  • OF WHAT YOU HEAR PEOPLE SAYING
  • 00:21:41.130 --> 00:21:42.230
  • TODAY.
  • 00:21:42.230 --> 00:21:44.130
  • IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH,
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:45.220
  • YOU'RE NO MATCH FOR HIM.
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:47.280
  • YOU CANNOT GO TOE TO TOE
  • 00:21:47.280 --> 00:21:49.220
  • WITH THAT GIANT.
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:50.210
  • HE'S BEEN AROUND SINCE GENESIS.
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:54.080
  • BUT YOU HAVE A BATTLE PLAN
  • 00:21:54.080 --> 00:21:55.220
  • THAT COULD HELP YOU OVERCOME,
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:58.230
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:21:58.230 --> 00:22:00.120
  • TO USE THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:02.100
  • EVERY NAME THAT HAS ALREADY
  • 00:22:02.100 --> 00:22:04.010
  • CRUSHED THE HEAD OF THE SERPENT.
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:07.150
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:07.250 --> 00:22:10.250
  • THE THIRD THING EVERY WARRIOR
  • 00:22:10.250 --> 00:22:12.180
  • NEEDS IS TO REMEMBER WHOSE
  • 00:22:13.140 --> 00:22:16.140
  • STRENGTH YOU'RE FIGHTING IN.
  • 00:22:16.140 --> 00:22:19.040
  • GOLIATH SAW DAVID COMING.
  • 00:22:19.040 --> 00:22:22.040
  • AND THE FIRST THING HE SAID IS,
  • 00:22:22.040 --> 00:22:23.070
  • "COME NEAR TO ME."
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:26.060
  • WHY?
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:28.050
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW IF THAT KID
  • 00:22:28.050 --> 00:22:29.090
  • STAYED OUT THERE,
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:30.060
  • THERE WAS NO WAY HE CAN HARM
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:31.080
  • HIM.
  • 00:22:31.080 --> 00:22:33.080
  • SO JUST LIKE EVERY ENEMY,
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:34.150
  • WHO WANTS TO DESTROY YOU,
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:35.210
  • HE'S TEMPTING YOU.
  • 00:22:35.210 --> 00:22:37.000
  • "COME NEAR TO ME."
  • 00:22:37.000 --> 00:22:39.230
  • WHEN GOLIATH LOOKED AT DAVID
  • 00:22:39.230 --> 00:22:41.010
  • AND SAID, "COME NEAR TO ME,"
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:42.200
  • DAVID SAID,
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:43.080
  • "YOU COME TO ME WITH SPEAR
  • 00:22:43.080 --> 00:22:45.040
  • AND SWORD,
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:45.280
  • BUT I COME TO YOU IN THE NAME
  • 00:22:46.010 --> 00:22:49.010
  • OF THE LORD."
  • 00:22:49.010 --> 00:22:51.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:57.040 --> 00:23:00.060
  • DID HE DO HIS PART?
  • 00:23:00.060 --> 00:23:01.160
  • YES!
  • 00:23:01.160 --> 00:23:02.250
  • BUT HE DID IT IN JESUS' NAME,
  • 00:23:03.270 --> 00:23:06.270
  • AND YOU HAVE TO DO THE SAME.
  • 00:23:06.270 --> 00:23:09.180
  • NO MATTER THE CONFLICT,
  • 00:23:09.180 --> 00:23:11.240
  • YOU HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE;
  • 00:23:11.240 --> 00:23:14.000
  • BE A WARRIOR AND A WINNER,
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:17.240
  • OR A WHINER AND A WIMP.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:21.200
  • BUT GOD CAN DO GREAT THINGS
  • 00:23:21.200 --> 00:23:24.150
  • WITH A WARRIOR.
  • 00:23:25.140 --> 00:23:28.140
  • WITH EVERY HEAD BOWED
  • 00:23:28.140 --> 00:23:29.060
  • AND EVERY EYE CLOSED,
  • 00:23:29.060 --> 00:23:30.050
  • YOU'RE IN THIS PLACE,
  • 00:23:30.050 --> 00:23:30.290
  • AND YOU SAY, PASTOR,
  • 00:23:30.290 --> 00:23:31.260
  • THERE'S A CONFLICT IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:23:32.080 --> 00:23:35.080
  • A CONFLICT I'VE BEEN IGNORING,
  • 00:23:35.080 --> 00:23:36.250
  • A CONFLICT I'VE BEEN STRUGGLING
  • 00:23:36.250 --> 00:23:38.100
  • IN,
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:38.250
  • A SITUATION THAT I NEED GOD'S
  • 00:23:38.250 --> 00:23:40.290
  • HELP TO GET OUT OF.
  • 00:23:40.290 --> 00:23:42.240
  • AND TODAY,
  • 00:23:42.240 --> 00:23:43.140
  • RATHER THAN WHINE OR WIMP OUT,
  • 00:23:43.140 --> 00:23:45.200
  • I AM GOING TO MAKE THE CHOICE
  • 00:23:45.200 --> 00:23:47.120
  • TO BE A WARRIOR.
  • 00:23:47.120 --> 00:23:49.220
  • IF YOU KNOW WHAT THAT CONFLICT
  • 00:23:49.220 --> 00:23:51.040
  • IS AND YOU KNOW YOU WANT
  • 00:23:51.040 --> 00:23:52.210
  • GOD'S HELP,
  • 00:23:52.210 --> 00:23:53.160
  • I WANT YOU TO RAISE YOUR HAND
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:54.120

  • NOW I WANT EVERYONE IN THIS
  • 00:23:56.290 --> 00:23:57.230
  • ROOM TO REPEAT THIS PRAYER
  • 00:23:57.230 --> 00:23:58.280
  • WITH ME.
  • 00:23:58.280 --> 00:23:59.090
  • LORD JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:01.290
