  • DELIVERING ALL THE GOSPEL
  • 00:00:06.110 --> 00:00:07.280
  • TO ALL THE WORLD
  • 00:00:08.180 --> 00:00:11.180
  • AND TO ALL GENERATIONS.
  • 00:00:13.090 --> 00:00:16.090
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:16.090 --> 00:00:18.140
  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: IF YOU
  • 00:00:18.140 --> 00:00:19.180
  • BROUGHT YOUR BIBLES,
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:20.140
  • TURN THEM TO 2 TIMOTHY 3,
  • 00:00:20.140 --> 00:00:22.110
  • THE 1ST THROUGH THE 5TH VERSE,
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:24.250
  • AS THIS MORNING WE CONCLUDE
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:26.020
  • THE SERMON SERIES,
  • 00:00:26.020 --> 00:00:27.090
  • "YOUR GUIDE TO THE APOCALYPSE"
  • 00:00:27.090 --> 00:00:28.240
  • BY ASKING AND ANSWERING
  • 00:00:28.240 --> 00:00:30.020
  • THE QUESTION,
  • 00:00:30.020 --> 00:00:31.140
  • "WHO WOULD FOLLOW THIS GUY?"
  • 00:00:31.140 --> 00:00:33.270
  • WHEN IT COMES TO THE TOPIC
  • 00:00:33.270 --> 00:00:35.010
  • OF THE END TIMES
  • 00:00:35.010 --> 00:00:35.260
  • AND THE APOCALYPSE,
  • 00:00:35.260 --> 00:00:36.250
  • THERE IS AN APOCALYPTIC FIGURE
  • 00:00:36.250 --> 00:00:38.180
  • THAT THEOLOGIANS CALL
  • 00:00:38.180 --> 00:00:40.230
  • "THE ANTICHRIST."
  • 00:00:40.230 --> 00:00:42.000
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION,
  • 00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:43.030
  • HE'S MENTIONED UNDER THE NAME
  • 00:00:43.030 --> 00:00:45.130
  • OF "BEAST."
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:47.130
  • AND THERE'S A NUMBER OF THINGS
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:48.170
  • THAT THE BIBLE TELLS US
  • 00:00:48.170 --> 00:00:49.170
  • ABOUT HOW HE'S GOING TO OPERATE
  • 00:00:49.170 --> 00:00:51.080
  • IN HIS ADMINISTRATION
  • 00:00:51.080 --> 00:00:52.230
  • HERE ON THE EARTH
  • 00:00:52.230 --> 00:00:53.170
  • AND WHAT HIS PURPOSE IS.
  • 00:00:53.170 --> 00:00:55.050
  • BUT THE QUESTION HAS TO BE
  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:56.150
  • ASKED;
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:57.060
  • WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:00:58.270
  • FOLLOW A GUY,
  • 00:00:58.270 --> 00:01:00.020
  • KNOWING BEFORE HE EVEN TAKES
  • 00:01:00.020 --> 00:01:01.230
  • POWER,
  • 00:01:01.230 --> 00:01:02.120
  • HOW IT'S ALL GOING TO END?
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:05.210
  • IT'S NOT LIKE HE'S GOING TO
  • 00:01:05.210 --> 00:01:06.190
  • WALK INTO A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
  • 00:01:06.190 --> 00:01:08.250
  • LUNCHEON WITH A NAME TAG
  • 00:01:08.250 --> 00:01:10.120
  • THAT SAYS, "HELLO.
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:11.070
  • MY NAME IS ANTICHRIST."
  • 00:01:11.070 --> 00:01:13.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:13.080 --> 00:01:14.210
  • BUT WHEN HE COMES TO POWER
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:16.160
  • THE WORLD WILL ADORINGLY
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:18.090
  • FOLLOW HIM AND WORSHIP HIM.
  • 00:01:18.090 --> 00:01:21.080
  • WHY?
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:22.250
  • FIRST, LET'S CONSIDER
  • 00:01:22.250 --> 00:01:23.220
  • SOME THINGS THAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:01:23.220 --> 00:01:24.200
  • HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:01:24.200 --> 00:01:26.130
  • INDIVIDUALS HAVE SAID AND SOME
  • 00:01:26.130 --> 00:01:28.150
  • BELIEVE THAT ANTICHRIST
  • 00:01:28.150 --> 00:01:30.210
  • IS NOT REALLY A MAN;
  • 00:01:30.210 --> 00:01:31.280
  • THAT MAYBE IT'S A COMPUTER.
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:34.000
  • NOW I'VE KNOWN SOME COMPUTERS
  • 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:35.020
  • THAT CAME STRAIGHT OUT OF HELL,
  • 00:01:35.020 --> 00:01:36.110
  • BUT NONE OF THEM WERE
  • 00:01:36.110 --> 00:01:37.060
  • THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:01:37.060 --> 00:01:38.270
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:40.240
  • SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT
  • 00:01:40.240 --> 00:01:41.250
  • IT'S JUST AN ATTITUDE,
  • 00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:42.290
  • IT'S A CULTURE.
  • 00:01:42.290 --> 00:01:43.240
  • NOW JOHN DID WRITE IN
  • 00:01:43.240 --> 00:01:45.140
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT THERE IS
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:46.280
  • A SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:49.000
  • WHICH IS AGAINST CHRIST,
  • 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:51.090
  • THAT'S ALREADY IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:53.000
  • BUT WHEN YOU READ
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:53.200
  • REVELATION 13:18,
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:55.250
  • IT DEFINITELY TELLS US
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:57.160
  • THAT THE ANTICHRIST IS A MAN.
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:02:00.040
  • IN THIS,
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:00.210
  • JOHN THE REVELATOR SAYS
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:02.030
  • THAT THIS IS WISDOM;
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:04.060
  • THAT THE NAME AND THE NUMBER
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:05.250
  • OF THE MAN,
  • 00:02:05.250 --> 00:02:07.250
  • NOT THE COMPUTER,
  • 00:02:07.250 --> 00:02:08.220
  • NOT THE CULTURE;
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:09.270
  • THE MAN IS 666.
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:14.070
  • NOW IF YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:02:14.070 --> 00:02:14.290
  • HEBREW GEOMETRIA,
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.060
  • EVERY NUMBER AND EVERY LETTER
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:17.270
  • HAVE A CORRELATING VALUE.
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:19.060
  • AND THEY'RE SAYING THAT
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:19.280
  • THE NUMBER OF THIS MAN'S NAME
  • 00:02:19.280 --> 00:02:21.140
  • IS 666.
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:23.030
  • IT SIMPLY SYMBOLIZES THAT HE
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:25.020
  • IS INDEED 100 PERCENT SOLD OUT
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:28.010
  • TO SIN AND TO SATAN.
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:31.040
  • THE QUESTION IS,
  • 00:02:31.040 --> 00:02:32.090
  • WHY WOULD ANYBODY FOLLOW HIM?
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:35.030
  • IN HIS ADMINISTRATION,
  • 00:02:35.030 --> 00:02:36.080
  • HE WILL DESTROY ONE-THIRD
  • 00:02:36.080 --> 00:02:37.290
  • OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION.
  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:39.290
  • HE WILL BEHEAD THOSE WHO RESIST
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:41.170
  • HIM OR DO ANYTHING TO STAND
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:43.250
  • AGAINST HIM.
  • 00:02:43.250 --> 00:02:44.200
  • IN SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS,
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:46.010
  • HE TURNS THE WORLD INTO HELL
  • 00:02:46.010 --> 00:02:48.090
  • ON EARTH.
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:49.150
  • AND KNOWING ALL OF THIS
  • 00:02:49.150 --> 00:02:50.190
  • IN ADVANCE,
  • 00:02:50.190 --> 00:02:51.180
  • WHY WOULD ANYONE CONSIDER HIM
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:53.260
  • TO BE GOD INCARNATE?
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:56.240
  • TODAY I'M GOING TO TAKE YOU
  • 00:02:56.240 --> 00:02:57.230
  • TO THE PAGES OF SCRIPTURE
  • 00:02:57.230 --> 00:02:59.000
  • AND DESCRIBE EXACTLY THE KIND
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:01.130
  • OF CULTURE THAT WOULD LOOK AT
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:02.260
  • THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:03.240
  • AND SAY, "THAT'S OUR GUY."
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:07.120
  • PAUL PULLED BACK THE VEIL
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:08.280
  • FOR HIS PROTEGE, TIMOTHY,
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:10.130
  • IN 2 TIMOTHY 3.
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:12.070
  • AND HE SAID THAT THE CULTURE
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.060
  • THAT WOULD FOLLOW AN ANTICHRIST
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:14.260
  • IS THE KIND OF CULTURE THAT
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:15.270
  • IS "BRUTAL, DESPISERS OF GOOD,
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:18.040
  • UNLOVING,
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:19.040
  • LOVERS OF PLEASURE MORE THAN
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:20.130
  • LOVERS OF GOD."
  • 00:03:20.130 --> 00:03:22.140
  • PAUL WAS PAINTING A PORTRAYAL
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:23.260
  • OF THE MASSES,
  • 00:03:23.260 --> 00:03:24.270
  • WHO WILL LOOK TO THIS WORLD
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:26.050
  • LEADER AND CONSIDER HIM TO BE
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:28.210
  • A WONDERFUL THING.
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:30.050
  • WHAT DOES IT SAY TO US
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:31.160
  • IN THIS SANCTUARY TODAY?
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:33.230
  • SIMPLY THIS;
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:35.130
  • THAT THE STAGE IS SET.
  • 00:03:35.130 --> 00:03:36.270
  • THE DOMINOES ARE IN PLACE,
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:39.180
  • AND CHURCH,
  • 00:03:39.180 --> 00:03:40.240
  • JESUS CHRIST IS COMING SOON.
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:43.150
  • LIFT UP YOUR HEADS AND REJOICE;
  • 00:03:43.150 --> 00:03:45.140
  • FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:47.030
  • NIGH.
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:49.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:49.220 --> 00:03:52.160
  • READ WITH ME 2 TIMOTHY 3:1
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:55.210
  • THROUGH 5.
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:56.090
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:57.200
  • (AMEN!)
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:58.250
  • "BUT KNOW THIS;
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:04:00.170
  • THAT IN THE LAST DAYS,
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:02.100
  • PERILOUS TIMES WILL COME;
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:05.010
  • FOR MEN WILL BE LOVERS
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:06.270
  • OF THEMSELVES, LOVERS OF MONEY,
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:09.100
  • BOASTERS, PROUD, BLASPHEMERS,
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:12.040
  • DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS,
  • 00:04:12.040 --> 00:04:14.060
  • UNTHANKFUL, UNHOLY, UNLOVING,

  • UNFORGIVING, SLANDERERS,

  • WITHOUT SELF-CONTROL, BRUTAL,
  • 00:04:19.220 --> 00:04:22.220
  • DESPISERS OF GOOD, TRAITORS,
  • 00:04:22.220 --> 00:04:25.150
  • HEADSTRONG, HAUGHTY,
  • 00:04:25.150 --> 00:04:27.210
  • LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN
  • 00:04:27.210 --> 00:04:29.210
  • LOVERS OF GOD,
  • 00:04:29.210 --> 00:04:31.030
  • HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS,
  • 00:04:31.030 --> 00:04:33.160
  • BUT DENYING ITS POWER.
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:35.170
  • AND FROM SUCH PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:37.240
  • TURN AWAY."
  • 00:04:37.240 --> 00:04:39.180
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:41.070
  • YOUR WORD IS ALIVE
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:42.100
  • AND IT IS POWERFUL.
  • 00:04:42.100 --> 00:04:43.100
  • IT IS SHARPER THAN ANY
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:44.130
  • TWO-EDGED SWORD.
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:46.020
  • LET IT QUICKEN OUR SPIRITS

  • TODAY;
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:49.000
  • THAT WE WOULD BE FILLED
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:49.240
  • WITH BOLDNESS TO DO THE LABOR
  • 00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:52.020
  • OF YOUR KINGDOM ON THIS EARTH;
  • 00:04:52.020 --> 00:04:54.110
  • THAT WE WOULD TELL OTHERS ABOUT
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:55.240
  • JESUS CHRIST AND WHO HE IS
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:57.200
  • AND WHAT HE'S DONE IN OUR LIFE;
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:05:00.080
  • THAT THROUGH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:05:00.080 --> 00:05:01.180
  • THEY MAY BE DRAWN TO SALVATION
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:03.290
  • AND BE PREPARED FOR THE RAPTURE
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.170
  • OF THE CHURCH AND YOUR GLORIOUS
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:07.000
  • APPEARING.
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:08.090
  • THIS WE ASK, IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:10.100
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:11.250
  • AMEN.
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:12.150
  • (AMEN!)
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:13.040
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:05:13.040 --> 00:05:15.260
  • PAUL BEGINS THIS PASSAGE
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:17.190
  • IN 2 TIMOTHY BY SAYING,
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:19.010
  • "KNOW THIS; IN THE LAST DAYS..."
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:23.040
  • HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE DAYS
  • 00:05:23.040 --> 00:05:24.200
  • IN WHICH WE LIVE.
  • 00:05:24.200 --> 00:05:26.100
  • IN THIS SERIES,
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:27.160
  • WE HAVE ADDRESSED THESE THINGS:
  • 00:05:27.160 --> 00:05:29.180
  • ONE, THAT AN APOCALYPSE
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:31.070
  • REALLY IS NOT THE END
  • 00:05:31.070 --> 00:05:32.160
  • OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:05:32.160 --> 00:05:33.110
  • BUT AN APOCALYPSE IS
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:34.140
  • THE PULLING BACK OF A CURTAIN
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:36.080
  • SO THAT YOU CAN SEE WHAT'S
  • 00:05:36.080 --> 00:05:37.180
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:39.130
  • WHEN GOD PULLING BACK THE
  • 00:05:39.130 --> 00:05:40.220
  • CURTAIN TO SHOW HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:42.110
  • WHAT WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE,
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:43.170
  • HE OFTEN DESCRIBED WHAT WOULD
  • 00:05:43.170 --> 00:05:45.140
  • HAPPEN PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:47.040
  • OF HIS HEAVENLY KINGDOM HERE
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:48.260
  • ON EARTH.
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:50.090
  • ALSO THAT THE LAST DAYS
  • 00:05:50.090 --> 00:05:52.040
  • BEGAN 2.000 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:05:52.170 --> 00:05:55.170
  • WE KNOW THIS BECAUSE OF
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:56.290
  • THE PROFESSION IN ACTS 2:17,
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:06:00.100
  • IN WHICH HE SAID,
  • 00:06:00.100 --> 00:06:01.050
  • "THIS IS THAT WHICH WAS SPOKEN
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:03.070
  • BY THE PROPHET JOEL,
  • 00:06:03.070 --> 00:06:04.190
  • 'IN THE LAST DAYS --'"
  • 00:06:04.190 --> 00:06:06.120
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:07.180
  • IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:09.280
  • "-- I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:11.090
  • UPON ALL FLESH."
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:13.110
  • GOD DID THAT WHEN HE GAVE
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:14.280
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:16.130
  • IN THE UPPER ROOM.
  • 00:06:16.130 --> 00:06:17.270
  • SO WE HAVE BEEN IN THE LAST
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:19.290
  • DAYS FOR 2.000 YEARS.
  • 00:06:20.060 --> 00:06:23.060
  • YOU MIGHT HAVE SHOWED UP IN THE
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:24.290
  • 90'S, BUT WELCOME TO THE PARTY.
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:27.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:28.290
  • NOW LAST WEEK,
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.010
  • WE LINED UP ALL OF THE DOMINOES.
  • 00:06:30.010 --> 00:06:31.260
  • WE STARTED IN '48 WITH WHY IT
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:34.090
  • WAS A SIGNIFICANT THING
  • 00:06:34.090 --> 00:06:35.170
  • FOR ISRAEL TO BE BORN IN A DAY,
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:38.070
  • ANSWERING THE PROPHET ISAIAH'S
  • 00:06:38.070 --> 00:06:39.170
  • QUESTION.
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:40.060
  • THEN WE CONSIDERED NUCLEAR
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:41.140
  • POWER AND THE PROPHECY
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:42.230
  • OF ZECHARIAH.
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:43.200
  • AND THEN 1967 WHEN JESUS SAID
  • 00:06:44.000 --> 00:06:47.000
  • THAT THE DAY OF THE GENTILES
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:48.240
  • WOULD BE OVER AND THAT ISRAEL
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:50.270
  • WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE IN CONTROL
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:52.170
  • OF THE HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:06:52.170 --> 00:06:54.030
  • THEN WE CONSIDERED ALL KINDS
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:55.250
  • OF THINGS FROM TECHNOLOGY,
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:57.100
  • TO INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:06:58.030
  • COMMUNICATIONS,
  • 00:06:58.030 --> 00:06:59.010
  • TO FOOD SHORTAGE,
  • 00:06:59.010 --> 00:07:00.060
  • TO CULTURE WARS,
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:01.110
  • TO A CRASHING ECONOMY,
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:03.030
  • AND THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH,
  • 00:07:03.030 --> 00:07:04.200
  • AND HOW ALL OF THOSE DOMINOES
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:06.030
  • ARE SO PERFECTLY LINED UP;
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:08.050
  • THAT THINGS COULD CHANGE
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:09.160
  • BEFORE SUNSET TONIGHT.
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:12.140
  • SO HERE'S THE QUESTION;
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:15.280
  • WHY WOULD ANYONE FOLLOW
  • 00:07:15.280 --> 00:07:18.230
  • AN ANTICHRIST?
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:21.120
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE FORCED
  • 00:07:21.120 --> 00:07:22.210
  • TO FOLLOW HIM;
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:23.250
  • THEY'RE GOING TO WANT TO FOLLOW
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:25.270
  • HIM.
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.250
  • LAST WEEK,
  • 00:07:27.250 --> 00:07:28.120
  • I MADE A STATEMENT IN
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:29.150
  • THE SERMON JUST SEVEN DAYS AGO
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:31.260
  • THAT I THOUGHT THAT IN SOME WAY
  • 00:07:31.260 --> 00:07:33.190
  • TECHNOLOGY WOULD PLAY A ROLE
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:35.120
  • IN THE MARK OF THE BEAST;
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:37.130
  • THAT THERE WOULD PROBABLY BE
  • 00:07:37.130 --> 00:07:38.100
  • SOMETHING LIKE A MICROCHIP,
  • 00:07:38.100 --> 00:07:39.260
  • NOT A TATTOO.
  • 00:07:39.260 --> 00:07:40.260
  • YOU KNOW IN THE 70'S,
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:41.250
  • WE USED TO MAKE BAD MOVIES
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:43.050
  • ABOUT THE RAPTURE,
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:44.000
  • AND PEOPLE GOT 666
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:45.070
  • IN THEIR FOREHEAD,
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:45.290
  • AND IT WAS LIKE, UH-O-O-H!
  • 00:07:45.290 --> 00:07:47.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:50.120
  • I SAID THAT IT WOULD BE
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:52.210
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THE SIZE
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:53.280
  • OF A GRAIN OF RICE,
  • 00:07:53.280 --> 00:07:55.040
  • AND IT WOULD BE IMPLANTED
  • 00:07:55.040 --> 00:07:56.150
  • INTO YOUR HAND,
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:57.100
  • AND IT COULD BE USED
  • 00:07:57.100 --> 00:07:58.060
  • FOR A NUMBER OF THINGS LIKE
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:07:59.250
  • IDENTIFICATION AND COMMERCE
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:02.090
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS.
  • 00:08:02.090 --> 00:08:03.060
  • NOW,
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:03.270
  • PEOPLE WOULD CONSIDER THAT
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:05.000
  • TO BE A CONVENIENCE,
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.050
  • BUT THE ANTICHRIST CONSIDERS IT
  • 00:08:06.050 --> 00:08:08.050
  • A METHOD OF CONTROL.
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:09.090
  • I SAID THAT SEVEN DAYS AGO.
  • 00:08:09.090 --> 00:08:11.170
  • AND THEN MONDAY MORNING --
  • 00:08:11.170 --> 00:08:13.050
  • AND HERE'S THE HEADLINES
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:14.100
  • FROM RIVER FALLS, WISCONSIN.
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:16.280
  • "A SOFTWARE COMPANY IS OFFERING
  • 00:08:16.280 --> 00:08:18.220
  • TO ITS EMPLOYEES A MICROCHIP TO
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:21.200
  • BE IMPLANTED IN THEIR HAND."
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:24.140
  • THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY SAID,
  • 00:08:24.140 --> 00:08:25.280
  • "IT'S THE NEXT THING.
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.240
  • IT'S INEVITABLE AND WE WANT TO
  • 00:08:27.240 --> 00:08:29.120
  • BE A PART OF IT."
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:31.140
  • THEY'RE NOT FORCING EACH OTHER
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:32.200
  • TO DO IT;
  • 00:08:32.200 --> 00:08:33.030
  • THEY WANT TO DO IT.
  • 00:08:33.030 --> 00:08:34.130
  • IT'S HAPPENING RIGHT BEFORE
  • 00:08:34.130 --> 00:08:36.100
  • OUR EYES.
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:38.010
  • THERE ISN'T A NEWSPAPER THAT
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.190
  • YOU CAN PICK UP THAT DOES NOT
  • 00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:41.020
  • HAVE PROPHETIC RELEVANCE.
  • 00:08:41.020 --> 00:08:43.160
  • YOU READ WORDS LIKE "RUSSIA"
  • 00:08:43.160 --> 00:08:45.210
  • OR "CHINA" AND "NORTH KOREA."
  • 00:08:45.210 --> 00:08:48.040
  • OR YOU READ WORDS LIKE,
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:49.130
  • "OPEC PLANS TO CRACK DOWN
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:51.080
  • ON GLOBAL PRODUCTION,

  • TRYING TO RAISE THE PRICE
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:53.170
  • OF OIL."
  • 00:08:53.170 --> 00:08:54.000
  • OVER HERE ON THE SIDE,
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:54.290
  • "NATO IS TRYING TO DEFUSE
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.190
  • A DISPUTE BETWEEN TURKEY
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:08:58.000
  • AND GERMANY."
  • 00:08:58.000 --> 00:08:58.260
  • ALL OF THESE ARE NOT RANDOM
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:00.270
  • ACTS OF NEWS REPORTING.
  • 00:09:00.270 --> 00:09:02.170
  • ALL OF THESE ARE THINGS THAT
  • 00:09:02.170 --> 00:09:03.270
  • GOD SAID THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO
  • 00:09:03.270 --> 00:09:06.040
  • WOULD COME TO PASS
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:07.060
  • AT THIS TIME.
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:09.200
  • THERE'S A COMPANY THAT SAYS,
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:10.190
  • "IT'S JUST A MATTER
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:11.110
  • OF CONVENIENCE.
  • 00:09:11.110 --> 00:09:12.140
  • YOU KNOW IDENTITY THEFT
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:14.050
  • IS A VERY REAL PROBLEM."
  • 00:09:14.050 --> 00:09:15.150
  • AND IT IS.
  • 00:09:15.150 --> 00:09:17.040
  • IDENTITY THEFT IS ONE OF THE
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:18.070
  • FASTEST GROWING FORMS OF CRIME
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:20.070
  • IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:22.170
  • YOU KNOW ROBBERS USED TO
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:23.180
  • ACTUALLY HAVE TO GO TO WORK IF
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:25.020
  • THEY WANTED TO STEAL SOMETHING.
  • 00:09:25.020 --> 00:09:26.080
  • NOW THEY JUST HACK A COMPUTER.
  • 00:09:26.080 --> 00:09:28.260
  • THEY USED TO HAVE TO STICK
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:29.200
  • A GUN IN YOUR FACE,
  • 00:09:29.200 --> 00:09:30.180
  • AND SAY, "STICK YOUR HANDS UP."
  • 00:09:30.180 --> 00:09:33.010
  • NOW THEY JUST FIND A PLACE WHERE
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:34.090
  • YOUR INFORMATION IS STORED,
  • 00:09:34.090 --> 00:09:35.190
  • AND THEY CAN DO A LOT MORE
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:36.200
  • DAMAGE THAN A PICK POCKET EVER
  • 00:09:36.200 --> 00:09:38.000
  • DREAMED ABOUT.
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:39.240
  • IN 2004,
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:41.100
  • THE 9/11 COMMISSION THAT WAS
  • 00:09:41.100 --> 00:09:42.290
  • PUT TOGETHER AFTER THE ATTACKS
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.220
  • ON THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:46.050
  • ON SEPTEMBER THE 11TH,
  • 00:09:46.050 --> 00:09:48.030
  • STUDIED HOW AL QAEDA
  • 00:09:48.030 --> 00:09:49.260
  • AND OTHER TERROR GROUPS TRAINED
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:51.140
  • TERRORISTS TO COME TO
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:52.150
  • THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:53.160
  • AND IDENTITY THEFT WAS AT
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:55.030
  • THE TOP OF THE LIST.
  • 00:09:55.030 --> 00:09:57.100
  • THEY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERY
  • 00:09:57.100 --> 00:09:58.150
  • TRAINED TERRORIST TRAVELED WITH
  • 00:09:58.150 --> 00:10:00.050
  • NO LESS THAN FIVE FAKE I.D.'S
  • 00:10:00.050 --> 00:10:02.140
  • AND THAT THEY LIVE OFF
  • 00:10:02.140 --> 00:10:03.150
  • OF CREDIT CARD FRAUD WHILE
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:05.020
  • THEY'RE IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:07.200
  • IS IDENTITY THEFT A PROBLEM?
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.070
  • A HUGE PROBLEM.
  • 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:10.250
  • IT BECOMES AN EVEN GREATER
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:12.030
  • PROBLEM WHENEVER THEY MOVE OVER
  • 00:10:12.030 --> 00:10:13.220
  • HERE TO THE WEST.
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:14.260
  • AND WE'RE SUCH A

  • HYPERSENSITIVE,
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:16.150
  • POLITICALLY CORRECT CULTURE
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:18.110
  • THAT WE WOULD RATHER HARASS

  • THE COP, WHO IS DOING HIS JOB,

  • SAYING, "HE'S PROFILING"
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:24.130
  • THAN GIVE HIM PERMISSION

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:58.190 --> 00:11:01.210
  • STAY TUNED

  • THAT'S ALREADY APPARENT.

  • ANTICHRIST WILL COME AT A TIME
  • 00:12:17.100 --> 00:12:19.190

  • WE HAVE A TEXTING WHILE DRIVING
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:41.000
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:41.160
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WILL ADMIT THAT?
  • 00:12:41.160 --> 00:12:43.290
  • HOW MANY OF YOU AT LEAST KNOW
  • 00:12:43.290 --> 00:12:45.160
  • SOMEBODY WHO'S TEXTED WHILE
  • 00:12:45.160 --> 00:12:46.290
  • THEY DRIVE?
  • 00:12:46.290 --> 00:12:48.010
  • I MEAN YOU WOULDN'T DO IT,

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:52.090
  • SO WHAT DO WE DO?
  • 00:12:52.090 --> 00:12:54.070
  • WE DON'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM BY
  • 00:12:54.070 --> 00:12:56.100
  • COMING UP WITH A REAL ANSWER.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.150
  • WE JUST WRITE ANOTHER LAW
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:12:58.190
  • TO FIX THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:12:58.190 --> 00:13:00.100
  • AND THAT LAW CREATES MORE
  • 00:13:00.100 --> 00:13:01.140
  • PROBLEMS.
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:03.160
  • WE DON'T SOLVE PROBLEMS
  • 00:13:03.160 --> 00:13:04.280
  • BY ADDRESSING THEM DIRECTLY,
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:07.050
  • TAKING PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:13:07.050 --> 00:13:08.200
  • OVER THEM;
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:09.150
  • WE SOLVE PROBLEMS BY CREATING
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:11.060
  • MORE PROBLEMS.
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:13.130
  • THAT'S THE KIND OF LIFE
  • 00:13:13.130 --> 00:13:14.260
  • AND CULTURE THAT THE ANTICHRIST
  • 00:13:14.260 --> 00:13:16.050
  • WILL WORK IN.
  • 00:13:16.050 --> 00:13:17.010
  • HOW DID THAT CULTURE
  • 00:13:17.010 --> 00:13:18.070
  • COME TO PASS?
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:19.080
  • IT IS AS PAUL SAID,
  • 00:13:19.080 --> 00:13:21.000
  • "BECAUSE WE ARE LOVERS OF SELF."
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:25.100
  • WE LIVE IN A GENERATION
  • 00:13:25.100 --> 00:13:26.200
  • THAT IT IS ALL ABOUT ME.
  • 00:13:26.250 --> 00:13:29.250
  • I LIKE ME.
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:31.210
  • I THINK I'M WONDERFUL.
  • 00:13:31.210 --> 00:13:33.240
  • I AM A-MAZ-ING.
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:37.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:37.050 --> 00:13:40.000
  • AND THAT IS EXACTLY CONTRARY
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:42.030
  • TO WHAT JESUS,
  • 00:13:42.030 --> 00:13:43.030
  • THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:44.010
  • OF OUR FAITH, SAID.
  • 00:13:44.010 --> 00:13:46.100
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:46.240
  • "THE GREATEST AMONG YOU
  • 00:13:46.240 --> 00:13:47.220
  • IS THE SERVANT OF ALL."
  • 00:13:47.220 --> 00:13:49.220
  • YOU CAN'T SERVE OTHERS WHEN
  • 00:13:49.220 --> 00:13:51.040
  • YOU'RE SO SELF-ABSORBED;
  • 00:13:51.040 --> 00:13:52.080
  • YOU DON'T THINK OF OTHERS.
  • 00:13:52.080 --> 00:13:54.230
  • WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT IS
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:56.020
  • SO SELF-ABSORBED.
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.120
  • JUST LISTEN TO THE THINGS
  • 00:13:57.120 --> 00:13:58.110
  • THAT WE SAY.
  • 00:13:58.110 --> 00:14:00.140
  • OH, I NEED SOME "ME TIME."
  • 00:14:00.260 --> 00:14:03.260
  • "ME TIME" IS WHEN YOU GO OFF
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:05.050
  • BY YOURSELF AND PRETEND LIKE
  • 00:14:05.050 --> 00:14:06.190
  • YOU'RE IN A CROWD OF FRIENDS.
  • 00:14:07.050 --> 00:14:10.050
  • OH, I'M GOING TO GO
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:11.040
  • TO A SELF-HELP SEMINAR.
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:12.200
  • I'M GOING TO PAY $3.000
  • 00:14:12.200 --> 00:14:14.210
  • TO BECOME A BETTER VERSION
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:15.260
  • OF ME SO I CAN GIVE MYSELF
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:17.150
  • TO THE WORLD.
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:19.110
  • WHAT IF THEY DON'T WANT
  • 00:14:19.110 --> 00:14:20.010
  • TO UNWRAP YOU?
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:22.060
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:22.060 --> 00:14:24.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:26.250
  • WE USED TO TAKE PICTURES;
  • 00:14:26.250 --> 00:14:28.000
  • NOW WE TAKE SELFIES.
  • 00:14:28.000 --> 00:14:30.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:32.020
  • WE USED TO PHOTOGRAPH PLACES WE
  • 00:14:32.020 --> 00:14:33.190
  • WANTED TO REMEMBER AND THINGS
  • 00:14:33.190 --> 00:14:35.020
  • THAT WE WANTED TO RECALL,
  • 00:14:35.020 --> 00:14:36.140
  • AND STICK THESE IN
  • 00:14:36.140 --> 00:14:37.180
  • PHOTO ALBUMS,
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:38.150
  • AND SHY AND RUN WHENEVER
  • 00:14:38.150 --> 00:14:40.180
  • OUR MOM PULLED THEM OUT
  • 00:14:40.180 --> 00:14:41.270
  • WHEN OUR FRIENDS CAME OVER.
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:44.030
  • BUT NOW ALL WE DO IS,
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:45.050
  • THIS IS ME IN THE MORNING,
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:47.000
  • THIS IS ME IN THE CAR,
  • 00:14:47.000 --> 00:14:48.190
  • THIS IS ME IN THE PARKING LOT,
  • 00:14:48.190 --> 00:14:50.110
  • THIS IS ME IN THE LOBBY,
  • 00:14:50.110 --> 00:14:52.050
  • THIS IS ME WALKING,
  • 00:14:52.050 --> 00:14:53.260
  • THIS IS ME TALKING, THIS IS ME,
  • 00:14:53.260 --> 00:14:56.110
  • THIS IS ME, THIS IS ME.
  • 00:14:56.110 --> 00:14:59.010
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:00.140 --> 00:15:03.140
  • IF YOU SCROLL THROUGH THEM
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:05.050
  • REAL FAST,
  • 00:15:05.050 --> 00:15:05.250
  • MAYBE THEY'LL LOOK LIKE
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:06.170
  • YOU'RE WALKING.
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:08.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:11.100
  • ABSOLUTELY THE MOST
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:14.160
  • SELF-ABSORBED GENERATION
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:15.260
  • THAT WE'VE EVER SEEN.
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:18.070
  • BUT IT WASN'T ALWAYS THIS WAY.
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:21.190
  • THERE WERE SOME KEY INGREDIENTS
  • 00:15:21.190 --> 00:15:23.190
  • BACK IN OUR FOUNDATION THAT
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.160
  • STAYED WITH US FOR GENERATIONS.
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.060
  • AND THOSE THINGS WERE
  • 00:15:27.060 --> 00:15:28.140
  • SELF-SACRIFICE AND PERSONAL
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:30.130
  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:15:30.130 --> 00:15:32.140
  • THOSE TWO THINGS,
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:33.240
  • FOR GENERATIONS,
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:34.210
  • WERE THE SECRET TO THE SOURCE
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:36.200
  • THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT.
  • 00:15:36.200 --> 00:15:38.080
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU;
  • 00:15:38.080 --> 00:15:39.050
  • IF AMERICA IS GOING TO BE GREAT
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:41.060
  • AGAIN, THEN THOSE TWO THINGS,
  • 00:15:41.060 --> 00:15:43.060
  • SACRIFICE AND RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:15:43.060 --> 00:15:45.100
  • HAVE GOT TO COME BACK
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:46.230
  • INTO OUR SOCIETY.
  • 00:15:46.230 --> 00:15:49.230
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:51.160 --> 00:15:54.160
  • LET'S CONSIDER THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:56.130
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:15:56.130 --> 00:15:57.160
  • OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS.
  • 00:15:57.160 --> 00:16:00.070
  • GEORGE WASHINGTON IS CONSIDERED
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:02.080
  • THE FATHER OF OUR NATION.
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:04.020
  • GEORGE WASHINGTON HERE
  • 00:16:04.020 --> 00:16:06.020
  • IS PORTRAYED AS KNEELING
  • 00:16:06.020 --> 00:16:07.110
  • IN PRAYER.
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.040
  • AND MODERN HISTORIANS WILL TELL
  • 00:16:08.040 --> 00:16:09.210
  • YOU, "OH, WELL THAT PICTURE'S
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:10.270
  • NOT REAL.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:11.170
  • HE DIDN'T POSE FOR
  • 00:16:11.170 --> 00:16:12.290
  • THAT PICTURE."
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:13.180
  • WELL, DAH,
  • 00:16:13.180 --> 00:16:14.100
  • HE DIDN'T POSE FOR THE PICTURE.
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:16.240
  • HE'S AT WAR.
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:18.080
  • HANG ON.
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:18.250
  • PAINT MY PICTURE.
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:20.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:23.030
  • DID YOU GET IT?
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:25.240
  • (SPEWING)
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:28.080
  • BUT HE OBVIOUSLY HAD
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:29.100
  • A CHARACTER THAT REFLECTED THIS;
  • 00:16:29.100 --> 00:16:31.120
  • OTHERWISE, THEY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:16:31.120 --> 00:16:32.120
  • NEVER PAINTED IT.
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:35.230
  • NOW YEARS AGO,
  • 00:16:35.230 --> 00:16:37.020
  • I WAS ABLE TO TAKE MY CHILDREN
  • 00:16:37.020 --> 00:16:38.130
  • TO MOUNT VERNON ON A TRIP.
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:41.150
  • AND WHEN I WAS THERE
  • 00:16:41.150 --> 00:16:42.080
  • AT MOUNT VERNON,
  • 00:16:42.080 --> 00:16:42.280
  • I GOT TO LEARN THINGS
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:44.060
  • ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON
  • 00:16:44.060 --> 00:16:45.110
  • THAT SHAMEFULLY YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:16:45.110 --> 00:16:47.050
  • WILL NOT LEARN IN
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:48.080
  • AN AMERICAN HISTORY CLASS.
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.120
  • MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY IS NOT
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:53.060
  • AMERICAN HISTORY THAT TELLS
  • 00:16:53.060 --> 00:16:54.160
  • THE STORY OF THIS NATION
  • 00:16:54.160 --> 00:16:56.010
  • THAT WAS FORMED BY GOD'S GRACE.
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:57.230
  • MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY TEACHES
  • 00:16:57.230 --> 00:16:59.120
  • YOUR CHILDREN TO APOLOGIZE
  • 00:16:59.120 --> 00:17:01.130
  • FOR BEING AMERICAN.
  • 00:17:01.260 --> 00:17:04.260
  • MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY SAYS,
  • 00:17:04.260 --> 00:17:06.050
  • "THIS GUY WAS GREEDY.
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.220
  • THIS GUY WAS POWER HUNGRY.
  • 00:17:07.220 --> 00:17:09.160
  • THIS GUY PICKED A FIGHT THAT
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.020
  • DIDN'T NEED TO BE FOUGHT."
  • 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:13.150
  • MOUNT VERNON TELLS YOU
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:14.200
  • A DIFFERENT STORY.
  • 00:17:14.200 --> 00:17:17.170
  • WHEN YOU GO TO MOUNT VERNON,
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:19.130
  • YOU LEARN SOME FACTS.
  • 00:17:19.130 --> 00:17:20.180
  • THE FIRST FACT IS THAT
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:22.040
  • GEORGE WASHINGTON'S GRANDFATHER
  • 00:17:22.040 --> 00:17:23.240
  • STARTED THE FAMILY FARM IN 1674.
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:26.260
  • BY 1730, THE FAMILY FARM
  • 00:17:26.260 --> 00:17:29.070
  • HAD GROWN TO 8.000 ACRES.
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:31.120
  • THAT'S BIG BY J.R., IN DALLAS,
  • 00:17:31.120 --> 00:17:33.170
  • HEWING STANDARDS.
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:35.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:35.280 --> 00:17:37.150
  • THE AGRICULTURE THAT
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:39.000
  • THE WASHINGTON FAMILY GREW
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:40.100
  • ON THE FARM WAS SHIPPED
  • 00:17:40.100 --> 00:17:42.080
  • ALL OVER EUROPE.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:43.230
  • THEIR FARM WAS RIGHT
  • 00:17:43.230 --> 00:17:44.170
  • ON THE POTOMAC RIVER.
  • 00:17:44.170 --> 00:17:45.170
  • THEY BUILT A HARBOR.
  • 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:46.220
  • AND SO BASICALLY THEY HAD
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:48.050
  • A GLOBAL SHIPPING COMPANY.
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:50.020
  • THEY COULD SHIP WHEAT.
  • 00:17:50.020 --> 00:17:51.000
  • THEY COULD SHIP CORN.
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.010
  • THEY COULD SHIP BEEF, TOBACCO,
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:53.110
  • PORK, LAMB, AND WOOL.
  • 00:17:53.110 --> 00:17:54.290
  • BOTTOM LINE: BEFORE
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:56.200
  • THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION STARTED,
  • 00:17:56.200 --> 00:17:58.160
  • THE WASHINGTON FAMILY WAS ONE
  • 00:17:58.160 --> 00:18:00.030
  • OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL FAMILIES
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:02.040
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:18:02.040 --> 00:18:03.190
  • AND IN EUROPE.
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:07.020
  • SO THE QUESTION HAS TO BE ASKED.
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:09.160
  • IF YOU'RE A BUSINESSMAN
  • 00:18:09.160 --> 00:18:11.050
  • AND YOU'RE DOING BUSINESS
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:12.060
  • WITH THE WORLD,
  • 00:18:12.060 --> 00:18:13.090
  • WHAT'S THE MOST EXPENSIVE THING
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:15.000
  • YOU CAN DO?
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:16.160
  • START A WAR.
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:19.180
  • THE BRITISH NAVY SHUT DOWN
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:21.090
  • THE ATLANTIC TRADE.
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:22.240
  • THE CONTINENTAL NAVY COULD NOT
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:24.090
  • GET GOODS OVER TO EUROPE,
  • 00:18:24.090 --> 00:18:25.230
  • NOR COULD THEY GET GOODS IN.
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:27.130
  • THE BLOCKADE WAS A MILITARY
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:28.270
  • STRATEGY.
  • 00:18:28.270 --> 00:18:29.270
  • IF WASHINGTON WAS GREEDY,
  • 00:18:29.270 --> 00:18:31.230
  • IF WASHINGTON WAS POWER HUNGRY,
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:33.210
  • IF WASHINGTON WANTED TO RULE
  • 00:18:33.210 --> 00:18:35.110
  • THE WORLD,
  • 00:18:35.110 --> 00:18:36.040
  • WHY WOULD HE START THAT FIGHT?
  • 00:18:37.190 --> 00:18:40.190
  • WHY WOULD HE GIVE HIMSELF TERM
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:42.160
  • LIMITATIONS AS PRESIDENT
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:44.040
  • AND NOT COME TO WEAR THE CROWN
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:45.200
  • IN THE UNITED STATES?
  • 00:18:45.200 --> 00:18:47.280
  • HIS BEHAVIOR DOESN'T PORTRAY
  • 00:18:47.280 --> 00:18:50.000
  • THE GUY THAT THEY'RE TALKING
  • 00:18:50.000 --> 00:18:51.070
  • ABOUT IN HISTORY CLASSES TODAY.
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:55.130
  • WHAT WAS IT THAT CAUSED HIM TO
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:57.210
  • TAKE A STAND OF SELF-SACRIFICE
  • 00:18:57.210 --> 00:19:00.050
  • AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY?
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:01.290
  • THE ANSWER IS HE DIDN'T LOVE
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:04.020
  • HIMSELF LIKE PAUL SAYS OF THIS
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:06.070
  • GENERATION IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:08.030
  • HE THOUGHT ABOUT HIS CHILDREN,
  • 00:19:08.030 --> 00:19:09.200
  • AND HIS GRANDCHILDREN,
  • 00:19:09.200 --> 00:19:10.270
  • AND HIS GREAT GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:19:10.270 --> 00:19:12.180
  • AND HE DIDN'T WANT THEM TO LIVE
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:14.030
  • IN A WORLD WHERE THEY SERVED
  • 00:19:14.030 --> 00:19:15.100
  • KING GEORGE.
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.100
  • HE WANTED THEM TO BE FREE
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:17.240
  • TO SERVE ONLY ONE KING WHO SAT
  • 00:19:17.240 --> 00:19:19.200
  • ON THE THRONE IN HEAVEN ABOVE.
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:21.180
  • AND HE TOOK A STAND FOR
  • 00:19:21.180 --> 00:19:23.040
  • PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:24.280
  • HE SACRIFICED OF HIMSELF.
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:26.280
  • AND HE AND HIS FELLOW PATRIOTS
  • 00:19:26.280 --> 00:19:28.270
  • BIRTHED ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
  • 00:19:31.020 --> 00:19:34.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:35.240 --> 00:19:38.240
  • GEORGE WASHINGTON WAS
  • 00:19:38.240 --> 00:19:40.200
  • A GENERATION THAT
  • 00:19:40.200 --> 00:19:41.180
  • IF THE ANTICHRIST WOULD HAVE
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:42.240
  • SHOWED UP, THEY WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:19:42.240 --> 00:19:43.280
  • "NO, THANK YOU."
  • 00:19:43.280 --> 00:19:46.180
  • LET'S CONSIDER ANOTHER
  • 00:19:46.180 --> 00:19:47.140
  • GENERATION.
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:48.020
  • THIS IS THE GREATEST
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:49.100
  • GENERATION.
  • 00:19:49.100 --> 00:19:51.050
  • I WAS PRIVILEGED TO KNOW
  • 00:19:51.050 --> 00:19:52.210
  • TWO MEMBERS OF THAT GENERATION.
  • 00:19:52.210 --> 00:19:54.070
  • THEY WERE MY GRANDPARENTS,
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.140
  • BYTHEL AND VADA HAGEE.
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:58.240
  • BYTHEL WAS BORN IN 1912.
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:20:00.230
  • VADA WAS BORN IN 1913.
  • 00:20:00.230 --> 00:20:03.210
  • AND THEY WENT RIGHT THROUGH THE
  • 00:20:03.210 --> 00:20:05.080
  • TEETH OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION.
  • 00:20:05.120 --> 00:20:08.120
  • THEY DIDN'T GO THROUGH AN ERA
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:09.180
  • WHERE IT WAS HARD TO FIND A JOB
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:11.130
  • GETTING OUT OF COLLEGE.
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:12.100
  • THEY WENT THROUGH AN ERA WHERE
  • 00:20:12.100 --> 00:20:13.130
  • THERE WASN'T ENOUGH FOOD FOR
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:14.180
  • EVERYBODY IN THE FAMILY TO EAT.
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:17.230
  • AND HOW DID THEY GET THROUGH
  • 00:20:17.230 --> 00:20:18.210
  • THE GREAT DEPRESSION?
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:19.160
  • THEY WENT TO WORK.
  • 00:20:19.160 --> 00:20:21.110
  • THEY WORKED THEIR WAY OUT
  • 00:20:21.110 --> 00:20:22.200
  • OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:20:22.200 --> 00:20:24.020
  • THAT'S A PRINCIPLE
  • 00:20:24.020 --> 00:20:24.280
  • THAT WE COULD LEARN
  • 00:20:24.280 --> 00:20:25.220
  • IN THE UNITED STATES TODAY.
  • 00:20:25.220 --> 00:20:27.250
  • YOU CAN WORK YOUR WAY OUT
  • 00:20:27.250 --> 00:20:29.110
  • OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:20:29.110 --> 00:20:31.150
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:32.200 --> 00:20:35.200
  • EVEN IN SPITE OF EDUCATION,
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:38.060
  • IF ALL THEY COULD DO WAS PUSH
  • 00:20:38.060 --> 00:20:39.120
  • A BROOM, THEY PUSHED A BROOM.
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:40.190
  • AND IF ALL THEY MADE WAS
  • 00:20:40.190 --> 00:20:41.180
  • A NICKEL, THEY TOOK A NICKEL.
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:44.070
  • NOW WE HAVE A SOCIETY
  • 00:20:44.070 --> 00:20:45.070
  • THAT SAYS,
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:45.240
  • "WELL THAT JOB IS BENEATH ME."
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:49.250
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:20:49.250 --> 00:20:50.240
  • IF YOU'RE MAKING ZERO,
  • 00:20:50.240 --> 00:20:52.050
  • $7.25 IS A PROMOTION.
  • 00:20:52.220 --> 00:20:55.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:59.100 --> 00:21:02.120
  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH.
  • 00:21:02.120 --> 00:21:04.210
  • BUT WHAT THEY HAD,
  • 00:21:04.210 --> 00:21:05.220
  • THEY TOOK PERSONAL
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:06.170
  • RESPONSIBILITY FOR.
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:07.270
  • THEY, AS A GENERATION,
  • 00:21:07.270 --> 00:21:09.030
  • NEVER ASKED SOMEONE ELSE
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:10.250
  • TO TAKE CARE OF THEM;
  • 00:21:10.250 --> 00:21:11.290
  • THEY TOOK CARE OF THEMSELVES
  • 00:21:11.290 --> 00:21:13.240
  • AND THOSE WHO WERE UNDER
  • 00:21:13.240 --> 00:21:14.290
  • THEIR HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:21:14.290 --> 00:21:17.220
  • HOW'D THEY DO IT?
  • 00:21:17.220 --> 00:21:18.180
  • BY SELF-SACRIFICE.
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:21.050
  • THEY LIVED FOR EACH OTHER,
  • 00:21:21.050 --> 00:21:22.290
  • NOT FOR THEMSELVES.
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:25.130
  • THEY HAD TEN ACRES EAST
  • 00:21:25.130 --> 00:21:27.000
  • OF HOUSTON.
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:28.280
  • AND EVER SINCE I WAS BORN,
  • 00:21:28.280 --> 00:21:30.080
  • THEY HAD A GARDEN ON THOSE
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:31.210
  • TEN ACRES.
  • 00:21:31.210 --> 00:21:32.060
  • HOW MANY OF Y'ALL HAD
  • 00:21:32.060 --> 00:21:33.000
  • GRANDPARENTS THAT PLANTED
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:33.290
  • AND PICKED TOMATOES?
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:35.290
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE GRAND KIDS
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:37.090
  • THAT THINK TOMATOES GROW
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:38.090
  • ON AN HEB SHELF?
  • 00:21:38.090 --> 00:21:40.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:40.180 --> 00:21:42.200
  • THEY KNEW HOW TO TAKE CARE
  • 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:43.200
  • OF THEMSELVES.
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:45.170
  • THEY HAD A GARDEN.
  • 00:21:45.170 --> 00:21:47.020
  • THEY HAD CHICKENS.
  • 00:21:47.020 --> 00:21:48.280
  • THEY HAD A COW.
  • 00:21:48.280 --> 00:21:49.280
  • THEY CALLED IT A FOUR-FAMILY
  • 00:21:49.280 --> 00:21:51.020
  • COW,
  • 00:21:51.020 --> 00:21:51.200
  • BECAUSE YOU COULD MILK IT FOUR
  • 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:52.180
  • TIMES A DAY AND SHARE THE MILK
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.010
  • WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS.
  • 00:21:54.010 --> 00:21:56.060
  • THEY HAD A FREEZER THAT WAS
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:57.080
  • FULL OF FOOD THAT THEY HAD
  • 00:21:57.080 --> 00:21:58.180
  • EITHER CAUGHT IN THE STREAM OR
  • 00:21:58.180 --> 00:21:59.250
  • THEY HARVESTED FROM THE FIELD.
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:01.070
  • BUT THE BOTTOM LINE WAS
  • 00:22:01.070 --> 00:22:02.250
  • THEY KNEW HOW TO TAKE CARE
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.150
  • OF THEMSELVES.
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:05.110
  • THEY DIDN'T LOOK AT
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:06.060
  • THE GOVERNMENT,
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:06.260
  • AND SAY, FEED ME,
  • 00:22:06.260 --> 00:22:07.230
  • AND CLOTHE ME, AND FIX ME,
  • 00:22:07.230 --> 00:22:09.070
  • AND MAKE ME, AND HELP ME,
  • 00:22:09.070 --> 00:22:10.210
  • AND DO FOR ME.
  • 00:22:10.210 --> 00:22:11.230
  • THEY SAID,
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:12.110
  • IT'S OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DO
  • 00:22:12.110 --> 00:22:14.090
  • THIS FOR OUR SELF.
  • 00:22:14.090 --> 00:22:16.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:21.220
  • SO COULD AN ANTICHRIST COME
  • 00:22:21.220 --> 00:22:24.070
  • AND TAKE OVER BYTHEL AND VADA'S
  • 00:22:24.070 --> 00:22:25.240
  • LITTLE HOUSE?
  • 00:22:25.240 --> 00:22:26.210
  • NOT A CHANCE.
  • 00:22:26.210 --> 00:22:28.250
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE'S GOING
  • 00:22:28.250 --> 00:22:30.060
  • TO MAKE THEM TAKE THIS MARK
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:32.040
  • AND THAT NO ONE CAN BUY, SELL,
  • 00:22:32.040 --> 00:22:34.010
  • OR TRADE WITHOUT IT.
  • 00:22:34.010 --> 00:22:35.090
  • IF YOU WOULD HAVE TOLD BYTHEL
  • 00:22:35.090 --> 00:22:36.220
  • AND VADA THAT THEY HAD TO GO
  • 00:22:36.220 --> 00:22:38.110
  • GET A MARK IN ORDER TO GO TO
  • 00:22:38.110 --> 00:22:39.170
  • THE GROCERY STORE,
  • 00:22:39.170 --> 00:22:40.140
  • THEY WOULD HAVE LOCKED
  • 00:22:40.140 --> 00:22:41.080
  • THE GATE, PICKED THEIR TOMATOES,
  • 00:22:41.080 --> 00:22:42.160
  • LOADED THEIR GUNS,
  • 00:22:42.160 --> 00:22:43.140
  • AND SAID, "COME ON;
  • 00:22:43.140 --> 00:22:44.050
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS."
  • 00:22:44.050 --> 00:22:46.110
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:46.200 --> 00:22:49.200
  • THEY DIDN'T NEED A SECOND
  • 00:22:49.200 --> 00:22:51.000
  • AMENDMENT.
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:51.220
  • THEY JUST HAD GUNS.
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:53.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:53.200 --> 00:22:56.090
  • WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:22:58.070
  • TODAY?
  • 00:22:58.070 --> 00:23:00.180
  • THE WORLD TODAY HAS DECIDED
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:02.140
  • THAT PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:23:02.140 --> 00:23:04.130
  • IS NOTHING TO BE CONSIDERED.
  • 00:23:04.130 --> 00:23:07.110
  • WE DON'T WANT TO TAKE CHARGE
  • 00:23:07.110 --> 00:23:09.020
  • OF OUR LIVES;
  • 00:23:09.020 --> 00:23:10.050
  • WE WANT SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:11.190
  • CHARGE OF IT FOR US.
  • 00:23:11.190 --> 00:23:13.200
  • WE MAKE EXCUSES.
  • 00:23:13.200 --> 00:23:14.250
  • WE PLAY THE BLAME GAME.
  • 00:23:14.250 --> 00:23:16.070
  • RATHER THAN SOLVE THE PROBLEM
  • 00:23:16.070 --> 00:23:17.160
  • TODAY,
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:18.120
  • WE PUNT IT DOWN THE ROAD
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:19.250
  • FOR ANOTHER GENERATION TO DEAL
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:21.040
  • WITH.
  • 00:23:21.040 --> 00:23:22.210
  • WE THINK THAT TODAY WE'RE
  • 00:23:22.210 --> 00:23:24.150
  • SUFFERING IF WE GET INTO
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:25.200
  • THE STARBUCKS' LINE
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:26.220
  • AND THE WIFI DOESN'T WORK.
  • 00:23:26.220 --> 00:23:29.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:31.060
  • WE BELIEVE THAT PERSECUTION
  • 00:23:31.060 --> 00:23:32.200
  • IS WHEN YOU GET UGLY MESSAGES
  • 00:23:32.200 --> 00:23:34.120
  • ON YOUR FEED ON FACEBOOK.
  • 00:23:34.120 --> 00:23:37.060
  • THEY'RE TREATING ME BAD.
  • 00:23:37.060 --> 00:23:39.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:23:39.050 --> 00:23:40.190
  • WE THINK IT'S OFFENSIVE
  • 00:23:40.190 --> 00:23:41.270
  • IF SOMEBODY DOESN'T RECOGNIZE
  • 00:23:41.270 --> 00:23:43.070
  • OUR EVERY ACHIEVEMENT.
  • 00:23:43.070 --> 00:23:44.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:23:44.210 --> 00:23:45.090
  • BECAUSE WE ARE LOVERS OF SELF.
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:50.150
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:23:50.150 --> 00:23:51.080
  • THAT WHEN YOU LOVE YOURSELF,
  • 00:23:51.080 --> 00:23:52.250
  • IN ESSENCE, YOU HAVE THE SPIRIT
  • 00:23:52.250 --> 00:23:55.100
  • OF ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:23:55.100 --> 00:23:57.240
  • THE WORLD WILL FOLLOW THIS
  • 00:23:57.240 --> 00:23:59.030
  • MONSTER,
  • 00:23:59.030 --> 00:24:01.070
  • BECAUSE THE CULTURE OF THE
  • 00:24:01.070 --> 00:24:02.130
  • WORLD IS THE SAME SPIRIT
  • 00:24:02.130 --> 00:24:04.010
  • THAT WILL CREATE HIM.
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:06.110
  • CONSIDER THESE THINGS AS
  • 00:24:06.110 --> 00:24:07.270
  • WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:24:07.270 --> 00:24:08.260
  • 1 JOHN 2:22,
  • 00:24:08.260 --> 00:24:10.200
  • IT SAYS THAT "HE
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:11.210
  • (THE ANTICHRIST) IS ONE WHO
  • 00:24:11.210 --> 00:24:13.260
  • DENIES THE FATHER AND THE SON."
  • 00:24:14.210 --> 00:24:17.210
  • NOW IN THIS VERSE,
  • 00:24:17.210 --> 00:24:19.000
  • JOHN IS NOT SPEAKING ABOUT
  • 00:24:19.000 --> 00:24:21.100
  • THE MAN THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:24:21.100 --> 00:24:23.040
  • HE'S SPEAKING ABOUT
  • 00:24:23.040 --> 00:24:24.010
  • THE ATTITUDE OF ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:24:24.010 --> 00:24:26.260
  • HE SAID THERE'S AN ATTITUDE
  • 00:24:26.260 --> 00:24:28.100
  • THAT THE SECOND YOU DENY GOD
  • 00:24:28.100 --> 00:24:30.090
  • AND YOU DENY HIS SON,
  • 00:24:30.090 --> 00:24:31.240
  • IN ESSENCE,
  • 00:24:31.240 --> 00:24:32.160
  • YOU ARE NOT FOR HIM;
  • 00:24:32.160 --> 00:24:33.270
  • YOU'RE AGAINST HIM,
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:35.140
  • WHICH IS ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:24:35.140 --> 00:24:37.270
  • IN 1 JOHN 4:3, HE SAID,
  • 00:24:37.270 --> 00:24:39.170
  • "THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST
  • 00:24:39.170 --> 00:24:41.130
  • IS NOW ALREADY IN THE WORLD."
  • 00:24:41.200 --> 00:24:44.200
  • JESUS MADE THIS VERY CLEAR
  • 00:24:44.200 --> 00:24:46.050
  • WHEN HE WAS HERE IN HIS EARTHLY
  • 00:24:46.050 --> 00:24:47.060
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:24:47.060 --> 00:24:47.290
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:24:47.290 --> 00:24:48.160
  • "HE WHO IS NOT FOR ME
  • 00:24:48.160 --> 00:24:50.170
  • IS AGAINST ME."
  • 00:24:50.170 --> 00:24:52.170
  • IF YOU'RE NOT FOR CHRIST,
  • 00:24:52.170 --> 00:24:54.110
  • THEN YOU'VE EMBRACED THE SPIRIT
  • 00:24:54.110 --> 00:24:55.270
  • OF ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:24:55.270 --> 00:24:58.010
  • JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 16,
  • 00:24:58.010 --> 00:24:59.220
  • "IF ANY MAN COMES AFTER ME,
  • 00:24:59.220 --> 00:25:02.100
  • LET HIM DENY HIMSELF."
  • 00:25:02.100 --> 00:25:04.120
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:25:04.120 --> 00:25:05.090
  • LET HIM DENY HIMSELF.
  • 00:25:05.090 --> 00:25:07.070
  • "LET HIM TAKE UP HIS CROSS
  • 00:25:07.070 --> 00:25:08.270
  • AND FOLLOW ME."
  • 00:25:08.270 --> 00:25:10.180
  • THE TRUTH IS YOU CANNOT DENY
  • 00:25:10.180 --> 00:25:12.230
  • YOURSELF AND FOLLOW CHRIST
  • 00:25:12.230 --> 00:25:14.160
  • IF ALL YOU THINK ABOUT IS
  • 00:25:14.160 --> 00:25:16.020
  • YOURSELF.
  • 00:25:16.020 --> 00:25:18.150
  • ACCORDING TO JOHN'S WRITINGS,
  • 00:25:18.150 --> 00:25:20.050
  • THOSE WHO TELL THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:25:20.050 --> 00:25:22.020
  • "NO,"
  • 00:25:22.020 --> 00:25:22.190
  • THOSE WHO STAND AGAINST
  • 00:25:22.190 --> 00:25:23.210
  • HIS COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:25:23.210 --> 00:25:24.170
  • THOSE WHO DENY WHAT HE REQUESTS
  • 00:25:24.170 --> 00:25:26.250
  • OF THEM,
  • 00:25:26.250 --> 00:25:27.270
  • ARE IN ESSENCE, ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:25:27.270 --> 00:25:30.250
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:25:30.250 --> 00:25:32.130
  • THAT MEANS WHEN YOU KNOW
  • 00:25:32.130 --> 00:25:33.240
  • THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS SAYING,
  • 00:25:33.240 --> 00:25:35.030
  • "READ MY WORD,
  • 00:25:35.030 --> 00:25:36.110
  • HUNGER AND THIRST AFTER
  • 00:25:36.110 --> 00:25:37.130
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS,"
  • 00:25:37.130 --> 00:25:38.180
  • AND YOU SAY, "NO,"
  • 00:25:38.180 --> 00:25:39.280
  • IT'S ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:25:39.280 --> 00:25:42.030
  • WHEN YOU READ THAT JESUS SAID,
  • 00:25:42.030 --> 00:25:43.200
  • "WHEN YOU PRAY..."
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:44.260
  • AND HE ASKED US TO PRAY
  • 00:25:44.260 --> 00:25:46.070
  • CONTINUALLY,
  • 00:25:46.070 --> 00:25:47.060
  • GOD WANTS US TO TALK TO HIM.
  • 00:25:47.060 --> 00:25:49.040
  • GOD WANTS US TO ASK HIM AND
  • 00:25:49.040 --> 00:25:50.240
  • SEEK HIM AND FIND AND KNOCK SO
  • 00:25:50.240 --> 00:25:52.220
  • THAT THE DOORS OF HEAVEN CAN BE
  • 00:25:52.220 --> 00:25:54.000
  • OPENED.
  • 00:25:54.000 --> 00:25:54.220
  • WHEN WE KNOW IT,
  • 00:25:54.220 --> 00:25:55.220
  • AND WE DON'T DO IT,
  • 00:25:55.220 --> 00:25:57.010
  • IT'S ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:25:57.010 --> 00:25:59.260
  • WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS, "GIVE,"
  • 00:25:59.260 --> 00:26:00.280
  • AND WE DECIDE THAT
  • 00:26:00.280 --> 00:26:01.180
  • THE RESOURCES WE HAVE ARE OURS
  • 00:26:01.180 --> 00:26:03.260
  • AND NOT HIS, IS ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:26:04.180 --> 00:26:07.180
  • THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST
  • 00:26:07.180 --> 00:26:08.260
  • IS INDEED IN THE CULTURE TODAY,
  • 00:26:08.260 --> 00:26:10.290
  • BUT EVEN WORSE,
  • 00:26:10.290 --> 00:26:12.050
  • IT'S IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:26:12.050 --> 00:26:15.010
  • IT'S IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:26:15.010 --> 00:26:17.010
  • WE'D MUCH RATHER CREATE
  • 00:26:17.010 --> 00:26:18.050
  • AN ENVIRONMENT OF COMFORT
  • 00:26:18.050 --> 00:26:19.260
  • RATHER THAN TAKE A STAND
  • 00:26:19.260 --> 00:26:21.000
  • IN CONVICTION.
  • 00:26:21.000 --> 00:26:22.230
  • WE'D RATHER MAKE EXCUSES
  • 00:26:22.230 --> 00:26:24.210
  • ABOUT CORRUPTION RATHER THAN
  • 00:26:24.210 --> 00:26:26.130
  • SPEAK AGAINST IT,
  • 00:26:26.130 --> 00:26:27.250
  • BECAUSE IF WE DO SPEAK OUT,
  • 00:26:27.250 --> 00:26:29.200
  • WE'LL BE LABELED.
  • 00:26:29.200 --> 00:26:30.190
  • WE'LL BE CALLED RADICAL.
  • 00:26:30.190 --> 00:26:31.230
  • WE'LL BE RELIGIOUS RIGHT.
  • 00:26:31.230 --> 00:26:33.020
  • WE'LL BE CONTROVERSIAL.
  • 00:26:33.020 --> 00:26:35.110
  • DEAR PASTOR HAGEE,
