  • in my mind."I'm telling you,
  • 00:04:49.638 --> 00:04:50.639

  • 00:05:03.919 --> 00:05:05.487
  • I'm thinking about this storyof when they sent the 12 spies
  • 00:05:05.487 --> 00:05:06.488
  • of when they sent the 12 spiesinto the promised land,
  • 00:05:06.488 --> 00:05:08.290

  • A seed had been plantedin their minds.
  • 00:05:14.062 --> 00:05:16.131

  • Yes, the men that they sawwere huge.
  • 00:05:17.065 --> 00:05:18.066

  • 00:05:19.568 --> 00:05:20.202
  • But what they said two thingsthat stuck out to me.
  • 00:05:20.202 --> 00:05:21.403
  • that stuck out to me.They said, number one,
  • 00:05:21.403 --> 00:05:22.471
  • They said, number one,when we saw them,
  • 00:05:22.471 --> 00:05:24.439
  • when we saw them,we were like grasshoppers
  • 00:05:24.439 --> 00:05:26.274
  • we were like grasshoppersin our own eyes.
  • 00:05:26.274 --> 00:05:27.008
  • in our own eyes.And that kind of makes
  • 00:05:27.008 --> 00:05:27.476
  • And that kind of makessense to me.
  • 00:05:27.476 --> 00:05:28.543
  • sense to me.But the second phrase
  • 00:05:28.543 --> 00:05:29.077
  • But the second phrasewas like,
  • 00:05:29.077 --> 00:05:30.178
  • was like,where did you get that?
  • 00:05:30.178 --> 00:05:30.612
  • where did you get that?And they said,
  • 00:05:30.612 --> 00:05:32.414
  • And they said,and we were like grasshoppers
  • 00:05:32.414 --> 00:05:34.983
  • and we were like grasshoppersin their eyes.
  • 00:05:34.983 --> 00:05:35.484
  • in their eyes.And I was like,
  • 00:05:35.484 --> 00:05:36.084
  • And I was like,how do you know
  • 00:05:36.084 --> 00:05:36.918

  • 00:05:44.559 --> 00:05:46.161
  • No, there was no communicationbetween the spies in the giants.
  • 00:05:46.161 --> 00:05:47.996
  • between the spies in the giants.The spies just got deceived
  • 00:05:47.996 --> 00:05:49.498
  • The spies just got deceivedby the enemy into thinking
