  • WHEN THE LOST ARE FOUND.
  • 00:00:01.140 --> 00:00:03.240
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING
  • 00:00:03.270 --> 00:00:08.000
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:00:08.030 --> 00:00:15.050
  • 00:00:15.080 --> 00:00:17.090
  • I HEARD ABOUT AN 85-YAER-OLD COUPLE.
  • 00:00:17.120 --> 00:00:19.150
  • THEY WERE BOTH 85.
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:20.280
  • THEY HAD BEEN MARRIED 60 YEARS, AND AMAZINGLY THEY
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:25.020
  • BOTH DIED ON THE SAME DAY AND THEY WENT TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:25.050 --> 00:00:29.240
  • THEY WERE GREETED BY SAINT PETER AT THE PEARLY GATES.
  • 00:00:29.270 --> 00:00:32.250
  • HE SAID, "WELCOME TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:34.120
  • LET ME SHOW YOU YOUR MANSION THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU."
  • 00:00:34.150 --> 00:00:37.230
  • THEY WENT INTO THIS BEAUTIFUL, PALATIAL ESTATE
  • 00:00:37.260 --> 00:00:41.220
  • AND HE TOOK THEM INTO THE CUSTOM KITCHEN AND THEN UP
  • 00:00:41.250 --> 00:00:45.060
  • TO THE MASTER BEDROOM COMPLETE WITH JACUZZI AND SAUNA.
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:49.190
  • THE OLD MAN WAS SO EXCITED AND HE SAID,
  • 00:00:49.220 --> 00:00:52.000
  • "BUT WAIT, HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST?"
  • 00:00:52.030 --> 00:00:54.220
  • PETER SAID, "ARE YOU KIDDING, MAN?
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:56.180
  • YOU'RE IN HEAVEN. IT COSTS NOTHING."
  • 00:00:56.210 --> 00:00:58.000
  • THEN HE TOOK THEM OUTSIDE OF THEIR PALATIAL ESTATE
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:01:02.190
  • AND THERE WAS THIS INCREDIBLE GOLF COURSE AND
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:05.170
  • BASICALLY THE COURSE WOULD CHANGE EVERY WEEK SORT OF
  • 00:01:05.200 --> 00:01:09.010
  • TO BE ONE OF THE GREAT GOLF COURSES ON EARTH
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:12.010
  • AND THE OLD MAN SAID, "WHAT ARE THE GREEN FEES?"
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:15.020
  • PETER SAID, "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?
  • 00:01:15.050 --> 00:01:16.200
  • YOU'RE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:18.040
  • THERE'S NO GREEN FEES. IT'S ALL FREE."
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:21.150
  • AND THEN PETER TOOK THEM TO THIS AMAZING SUMPTUOUS FEAST.
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:26.280
  • ALL KINDS OF AMAZING FOOD AND THE OLD MAN LOOKED AT
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:30.280
  • IT AND SAID, "WAIT, WAIT, WHERE'S THE LOW-FAT FOOD
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:34.030
  • AND THE FOOD FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE HIGH CHOLESTEROL?"
  • 00:01:34.060 --> 00:01:37.000
  • PETER SAID, "ARE YOU KIDDING?
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:38.160
  • WE DON'T HAVE LOW-FAT FOOD.
  • 00:01:38.190 --> 00:01:40.080
  • THIS IS HEAVEN, YOU CAN EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT AND
  • 00:01:40.110 --> 00:01:42.240
  • YOU'LL NEVER GET FAT."
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:44.030
  • [laughter and applause]
  • 00:01:44.060 --> 00:01:48.200
  • SO THE OLD MAN TAKES OFF HIS HAT, THROWS IT ON THE GROUND,
  • 00:01:48.230 --> 00:01:51.170
  • STARTS STOMPING ON HIS HAT.
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:52.260
  • PETER WAS LOOKING AT HIM AND SAYS,
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:55.200
  • "MAN, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?"
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:56.210
  • THE MAN TURNED TO HIS WIFE AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:01:56.240 --> 00:01:59.180
  • "IF IT WASN'T FOR YOUR BLASTED BRAN MUFFINS,
  • 00:01:59.210 --> 00:02:02.110
  • WE WOULD'VE BEEN HERE 10 YEARS AGO!"
  • 00:02:02.140 --> 00:02:04.270
  • [laughter]
  • 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:07.040
  • THAT OF COURSE IS NOT A TRUE STORY.
  • 00:02:07.070 --> 00:02:08.280
  • THAT'S JUST A JOKE, BUT HEAVEN IS NO JOKE.
  • 00:02:09.010 --> 00:02:12.140
  • HEAVEN IS A REAL PLACE.
  • 00:02:12.170 --> 00:02:15.130
  • MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:15.160 --> 00:02:17.130
  • IN FACT, 81 PERCENT OF AMERICANS BELIEVE THERE
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:20.040
  • IS A PLACE CALLED HEAVEN, 69 PERCENT BELIEVE
  • 00:02:20.070 --> 00:02:25.050
  • THERE'S A PLACE CALLED HELL.
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:27.150
  • I READ AN INTERESTING BOOK THAT TALKED ABOUT HOW
  • 00:02:27.180 --> 00:02:30.210
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE AT THE END OF LIFE, PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:33.230
  • IN THE DYING PROCESS HAVE THREE QUESTIONS
  • 00:02:33.260 --> 00:02:37.110
  • THEY ASK MOST COMMONLY.
  • 00:02:37.140 --> 00:02:39.100
  • THEY ASK THESE QUESTIONS OF THE CLERGY AND THEY ASK
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:42.100
  • THEM ALSO OF HOSPICE WORKERS.
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:44.130
  • HERE ARE THE THREE QUESTIONS PEOPLE ASK
  • 00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:46.150
  • WHEN THEY COME TO THE END OF LIFE.
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:48.240
  • 1. WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME AFTER I DIE?
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:52.240
  • 2. IS THERE REALLY A GOD?
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:56.060
  • 3. WILL I BE GOING TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:59.100
  • I'M GOING TO ANSWER ALL OF THOSE QUESTIONS IN THIS
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:01.190
  • MESSAGE THAT I'M CALLING HAPPINESS, HOPE AND HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:06.100
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT HEAVEN BECAUSE DEEP
  • 00:03:06.130 --> 00:03:09.040
  • DOWN INSIDE I THINK YOU ALREADY KNOW IT'S REAL.
  • 00:03:09.070 --> 00:03:14.040
  • YOU'RE SORT OF PREWIRED TO WANT TO GO THERE.
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:18.110
  • IT'S ALMOST LIKE WE HAVE A BUILT IN HOMING
  • 00:03:18.140 --> 00:03:20.250
  • INSTINCT LEADING US TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:23.080
  • THE BIBLE EVEN SAYS, "GOD HAS SET ETERNITY
  • 00:03:23.110 --> 00:03:26.080
  • IN THE HEART OF EACH PERSON."
  • 00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:29.120
  • IT WAS AUGUSTINE WHO SAID, "YOU FORMED US FOR
  • 00:03:29.150 --> 00:03:32.080
  • YOURSELF AND OUR HEARTS ARE RESTLESS UNTIL THEY
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:35.060
  • FIND THEIR REST IN YOU.
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:37.210
  • THAT'S WHY THERE'S A RESTLESSNESS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:40.020
  • THAT'S WHY THOSE THINGS THAT YOU GET DON'T SATISFY
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:43.080
  • YOU IN THE WAY YOU HOPE THEY WOULD.
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:45.140
  • THAT'S WHY YOU'RE ALWAYS IN SORT OF A SEARCH MODE.
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:48.180
  • C. S. LEWIS ONCE SAID, "THERE HAD BEEN TIMES
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:52.260
  • WHEN I THINK I DO NOT DESIRE HEAVEN, BUT EVEN MORE
  • 00:03:52.290 --> 00:03:55.160
  • OFTEN, I FIND MYSELF WONDERING IN MY HEART OF
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:58.190
  • HEARTS, IF I'VE EVER DESIRED ANYTHING ELSE."
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:02.080
  • C. S. LEWIS SAYS, "IT'S THE SECRET SIGNATURE OF EACH SOUL.
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:06.110
  • THE INCOMMUNICABLE AND UNAPPEASABLE WANT."
  • 00:04:06.140 --> 00:04:10.270
  • REMINDS ME OF A STORY OF A LITTLE BOY
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:13.140
  • THAT WAS FLYING HIS KITE.
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:14.290
  • IT GOT UP SO HIGH HE COULDN'T SEE IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:04:15.020 --> 00:04:17.110
  • THE CLOUDS WERE OBSCURING IT BUT HE STILL WAS
  • 00:04:17.140 --> 00:04:19.240
  • HOLDING ON TO THE STRING.
  • 00:04:19.270 --> 00:04:21.030
  • SOMEONE SAID, "BOY, IS YOUR KITE STILL ON THAT STRING?"
  • 00:04:21.060 --> 00:04:24.150
  • HE SAYS, "OH YEAH, ITS THERE."
  • 00:04:24.180 --> 00:04:25.270
  • "BUT YOU CAN'T SEE IT."
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.100
  • THE LITTLE BOY SAYS, "NO, BUT I FEEL ITS TUG."
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:31.010
  • I THINK DEEP DOWN INSIDE YOU FEEL THE TUG OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:04:31.040 --> 00:04:34.170
  • YOU KNOW THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN YOU'RE
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:36.270
  • EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:39.100
  • HERE'S WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:04:39.130 --> 00:04:41.060
  • "DON'T LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED.
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:43.100
  • NEITHER LET THEM BE AFRAID.
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:45.000
  • YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME.
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:47.280
  • IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS.
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:50.240
  • IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD'VE TOLD YOU.
  • 00:04:50.270 --> 00:04:52.280
  • AND IF I GO, I WILL COME AGAIN AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:56.250
  • MYSELF THAT WHERE I AM, YOU MAY BE ALSO
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:59.240
  • AND THE WAY YOU KNOW."
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.090
  • AND THEN THOMAS SAID, "WE DON'T KNOW THE WAY,"
  • 00:05:01.120 --> 00:05:03.260
  • AND JESUS SAID, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE AND
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:07.280
  • NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME."
  • 00:05:08.010 --> 00:05:11.160
  • YES, HEAVEN IS REAL, AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:14.240
  • I KNOW THAT I WILL GO TO HEAVEN WHEN I DIE.
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:17.250
  • YOU SAY, "WELL THAT'S KIND OF ARROGANT ISN'T IT?"
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:20.270
  • NO IT'S NOT AT ALL.
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:21.290
  • I JUST KNOW IT.
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:23.110
  • "HOW DO YOU KNOW?"
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:24.150
  • WELL THE BIBLE SAYS HIS SPIRIT BEARS WITNESS WITH
  • 00:05:24.180 --> 00:05:28.040
  • MY SPIRIT THAT I AM A CHILD OF GOD. I KNOW.
  • 00:05:28.070 --> 00:05:31.140
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:33.240
  • RAISE YOUR HAND TONIGHT.
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.140
  • THAT'S A LOT OF YOU.
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:37.070
  • [applause]
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:39.000
  • AND THERE'S SOME OF YOU THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:05:39.030 --> 00:05:40.030
  • RAISE YOUR HAND BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT SURE, BUT YOU
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:42.150
  • CAN KNOW. THIS IS CALLED HOPE, AND WE NEED HOPE TODAY.
  • 00:05:42.180 --> 00:05:48.020
  • GENERATION Z HAS BEEN DESCRIBED BY EXPERTS AS
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:51.140
  • THE HOPELESS GENERATION.
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.060
  • ARE YOU HOPELESS TONIGHT?
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:54.250
  • IF YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, I'M TELLING
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:57.180
  • YOU, YOU CAN HAVE HOPE.
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:05:59.150
  • DON'T PUT YOUR HOPE IN TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:02.050
  • DON'T PUT YOUR HOPE IN MATERIAL THINGS.
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:05.020
  • DON'T PUT YOUR HOPE IN POLITICIANS.
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:07.250
  • DON'T PUT YOUR HOPE EVEN IN RELIGION.
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:11.000
  • HOPE HAS A NAME AND IT'S JESUS CHRIST AND HE'S HERE
  • 00:06:11.030 --> 00:06:14.190
  • TONIGHT WITH US AND HE'S READY TO CHANGE
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:17.190
  • THE COURSE OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:17.220 --> 00:06:19.180
  • [applause]
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:22.040
  • SO I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HEAVEN.
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:24.140
  • I'VE ALWAYS BELIEVED IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:26.290
  • OF COURSE, AS A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.220
  • I'VE ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT IT IN MY MESSAGES AND I'VE
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:31.290
  • STARTED THINKING MORE ABOUT HEAVEN ESPECIALLY 11 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:06:32.020 --> 00:06:37.100
  • THAT WAS THE DAY MY SON CHRISTOPHER LEFT THIS
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:41.070
  • WORLD FOR THE NEXT ONE.
  • 00:06:41.100 --> 00:06:43.060
  • MY SON BEAT ME TO HEAVEN, BUT I THINK ABOUT HIM ALL
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:47.180
  • THE TIME AND I WONDER WHAT'S HE DOING UP
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:50.040
  • THERE IN HEAVEN. WHAT IS HEAVEN LIKE?
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:53.190
  • WHAT DO WE DO EACH DAY IN HEAVEN?
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:57.120
  • YOU KNOW, WE HAVE THIS WEIRD CONCEPT OF HEAVEN
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:06:59.280
  • THAT IS REINFORCED BY MOVIES AND SONGS AND WE THINK WE
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:04.280
  • JUST SIT AROUND IN HEAVEN ON BIG FLUFFY CLOUDS
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:07.090
  • AND TAKE SUPER LONG NAPS. WE WAKE UP.
  • 00:07:07.120 --> 00:07:10.080
  • PLUCK OUR HARPS A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:07:10.110 --> 00:07:11.210
  • FALL ASLEEP AGAIN.
  • 00:07:11.240 --> 00:07:12.260
  • THERE'S LITTLE FAT BABY ANGELS FLOATING AROUND US.
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:16.200
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE ALL ABOUT, BUT I'VE SEEN
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:19.000
  • THEM IN RELIGIOUS PAINTINGS, AND WE SAY,
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:21.270
  • "MAN, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:22.290
  • I DON'T REALLY KNOW IF I WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN."
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:25.010
  • WELL THAT'S NOT BIBLICAL HEAVEN.
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:27.160
  • THAT'S NOT THE REAL HEAVEN.
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:29.070
  • THE REAL HEAVEN, AS I SAID, IS A PLACE.
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:32.160
  • JESUS SAID, "I'VE GONE TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU."
  • 00:07:32.190 --> 00:07:35.250
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HEAVEN IS LIKE A PARADISE.
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:39.020
  • DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT JESUS SAID WHEN HE HUNG ON THE
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:41.250
  • CROSS AND ON EACH SIDE OF HIM WERE THIEVES,
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:45.260
  • ACTUALLY PROBABLY MURDERERS?
  • 00:07:45.290 --> 00:07:48.140
  • WE MIGHT CALL THEM TERRORISTS TODAY BECAUSE
  • 00:07:48.170 --> 00:07:51.210
  • THE ROMANS DIDN'T CRUCIFY THIEVES, BUT THEY DID
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:55.030
  • CRUCIFY INSURRECTIONISTS AND THAT'S PROBABLY
  • 00:07:55.060 --> 00:07:58.030
  • WHAT THESE GUYS WERE.
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:07:59.260
  • AND ONE OF THE MEN REALIZED THAT HE WAS
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:03.020
  • IN BIG TROUBLE FACING ETERNITY AND HE JOINED
  • 00:08:03.050 --> 00:08:06.160
  • THE OTHER THIEF IN MOCKING JESUS AND SAYING, "HEY,
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:10.010
  • YOU SAVED OTHERS, WHY DON'T YOU SAVE YOURSELF.
  • 00:08:10.040 --> 00:08:12.270
  • IF YOU'RE REALLY THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:14.120
  • COME DOWN FROM THAT CROSS."
  • 00:08:14.150 --> 00:08:16.030
  • AND THEN JESUS SAYS, "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:19.200
  • FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO."
  • 00:08:19.230 --> 00:08:22.180
  • RIGHT THERE, ONE OF THOSE MEN BELIEVED.
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:26.070
  • RIGHT THERE JUST LIKE THAT AND BY THE WAY THAT'S
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:28.080
  • HOW LONG IT TAKES TO BELIEVE.
  • 00:08:28.110 --> 00:08:30.060
  • IT CAN HAPPEN IN A NANOSECOND.
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.050
  • YOU CAN COME IN HERE AS A NONBELIEVER.
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:34.120
  • "I DON'T BELIEVE ANY OF THIS.
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:35.160
  • THIS ISN'T REAL."
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:36.200
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN SOMETHING IS SAID,
  • 00:08:36.230 --> 00:08:38.220
  • SOMETHING HAPPENS AND THE LIGHT GOES ON
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:41.000
  • AND YOU REALIZE, WOW, THIS IS ALL TRUE.
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:44.060
  • THE MAN TURNS TO JESUS AND SAYS,
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:47.100
  • "LORD, REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR KINGDOM."
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:50.130
  • AND JESUS SAID, "TRULY, TRULY, I SAY TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:53.220
  • YOU'LL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE."
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:57.240
  • WHAT IS HEAVEN? IT'S A PARADISE.
  • 00:08:57.270 --> 00:09:00.240
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS STONED ON ONE OCCASION.
  • 00:09:00.270 --> 00:09:04.230
  • NOT THAT KIND OF STONED.
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:06.100
  • I MEAN WITH ROCKS. HE WAS LEFT FOR DEAD.
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:10.160
  • IT'S AT THAT MOMENT MOST BIBLE SCHOLARS BELIEVED
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:13.090
  • HE DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN BECAUSE HE DID SAY HE DIED
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:16.070
  • AND WENT TO HEAVEN AND CAME BACK AGAIN AND IN
  • 00:09:16.100 --> 00:09:19.050
  • THAT MOMENT, PAUL DESCRIBES IT LATER AND HE
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:21.160
  • SAYS, "I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED EXACTLY BUT
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:25.140
  • I WAS SEIZED BY CHRIST AND SWEPT INTO ECSTASY
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:28.220
  • TO THE HEIGHTS OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:09:28.250 --> 00:09:30.190
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I WAS IN MY BODY OR OUT OF IT,
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:33.010
  • GOD KNOWS. BUT I'LL TELL YOU THIS MUCH.
  • 00:09:33.040 --> 00:09:35.060
  • I WAS HIGHJACKED INTO PARADISE AND I HEARD THE
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:39.000
  • UNSPEAKABLE SPOKEN AND I WAS FORBIDDEN
  • 00:09:39.030 --> 00:09:42.000
  • TO TELL WHAT I HEARD."
  • 00:09:42.030 --> 00:09:45.110
  • HEAVEN IS PARADISE.
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:48.230
  • BUT THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS, HEAVEN IS A CITY.
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:51.150
  • YOU KNOW I LIKE TO GO TO BEAUTIFUL PLACES LIKE HAWAII.
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:55.260
  • I'VE BEEN TO TAHITI - THAT'S NICE.
  • 00:09:55.290 --> 00:09:58.070
  • BUT I LIKE TO GO TO CITIES TOO.
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:10:00.140
  • I ENJOY CITIES. I LIKE TO LOOK AT MUSEUMS.
  • 00:10:00.170 --> 00:10:02.290
  • I LIKE TO EAT FOOD. I LIKE TO DRINK COFFEE.
  • 00:10:03.020 --> 00:10:06.160
  • I LIKE TO EAT FOOD. I LIKE TO WALK AROUND.
  • 00:10:06.190 --> 00:10:10.000
  • I LIKE TO EAT MORE FOOD.
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:11.290
  • SO HEAVEN IS A CITY. THE BIBLE TELLS US THIS.
  • 00:10:12.020 --> 00:10:16.040
  • IT TELLS US IT'S A CITY WHOSE BUILDER AND MAKER IS GOD.
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:21.050
  • SO THINK ABOUT CITIES.
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:22.280
  • THINK ABOUT CITIES YOU'VE READ ABOUT
  • 00:10:23.010 --> 00:10:25.110
  • OR MAYBE CITIES YOU'VE BEEN TO.
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:27.050
  • WELL, HEAVEN IS A CITY AS WELL. GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:31.040
  • THERE'S THINGS TO DO IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:10:31.070 --> 00:10:34.010
  • YOU CAN GET TOGETHER WITH LOVED ONES WHO HAVE
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:36.140
  • PRECEDED YOU AND HAVE DIED IN FAITH
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:38.220
  • AND YOU CAN HAVE MEALS TOGETHER.
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:41.050
  • YOU CAN REMINISCE TOGETHER.
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:42.250
  • YOU CAN DO THINGS TOGETHER.
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:44.270
  • WE MIGHT EVEN GO TO CONCERTS.
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:47.020
  • THERE'S SOME PRETTY AMAZING MUSICIANS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:10:47.050 --> 00:10:49.040
  • YOU MIGHT RUN INTO SOME FRIENDS AND SAY,
  • 00:10:49.070 --> 00:10:51.180
  • "WHERE ARE YOU GUYS GOING?"
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:52.190
  • "OH, WE'RE GOING TO GO SEE HANDEL'S MESSIAH
  • 00:10:52.220 --> 00:10:54.110
  • AND HANDEL HIMSELF IS GOING TO CONDUCT IT."
  • 00:10:54.140 --> 00:10:57.090
  • OH, WOW. I'M GOING TO A DIFFERENT CONCERT."
  • 00:10:57.120 --> 00:10:59.090
  • "WHERE ARE YOU GOING?"
  • 00:10:59.120 --> 00:11:00.080
  • "I'M GOING TO GO SEE JOHNNY CASH.
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:02.090
  • HE'S DOING A CONCERT RIGHT OVER HERE."
  • 00:11:02.120 --> 00:11:03.220
  • "YOU MEAN THE MAN IN BLACK?"
  • 00:11:03.250 --> 00:11:05.140
  • "NO. HE'S THE MAN IN WHITE NOW."
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:07.020
  • THEY DON'T WEAR BLACK IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:08.080
  • YEAH, THE MAN IN WHITE. YEAH.
  • 00:11:08.110 --> 00:11:10.020
  • YOU'RE ACTUALLY SAYING, "GREG YOU THINK WE'RE
  • 00:11:10.050 --> 00:11:12.150
  • GOING TO EAT MEALS IN HEAVEN AND MAYBE GO TO CONCERTS."
  • 00:11:12.180 --> 00:11:14.280
  • YEAH, I'M SAYING THAT AND MORE.
  • 00:11:15.010 --> 00:11:17.130
  • HEAVEN IS A HAPPY PLACE. HEAVEN IS A JOYFUL PLACE.
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:21.130
  • HEAVEN IS A PREPARED PLACE FOR PREPARED PEOPLE.
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:24.180
  • ARE YOU GOING TO HEAVEN? YOU CAN.
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:28.020
  • [applause]
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:31.250
  • I THINK IT'S POSSIBLE HEAVEN
  • 00:11:31.280 --> 00:11:34.030
  • IS WATCHING US RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:35.180
  • YOU SAY, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN HEAVEN IS WATCHING?
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:38.050
  • DON'T THEY HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO?"
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:40.280
  • WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THERE IS JOY IN HEAVEN IN
  • 00:11:41.010 --> 00:11:45.070
  • THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OVER ONE SINNER
  • 00:11:45.100 --> 00:11:49.080
  • THAT COMES TO REPENTANCE.
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:51.160
  • IS IT POSSIBLE THAT IF SOMEONE BELIEVED IN JESUS
  • 00:11:51.190 --> 00:11:55.150
  • HERE TONIGHT, THAT IT HAD BEEN PRAYED FOR BY THEIR
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:11:58.180
  • GRANDPARENTS OR THEIR MOM AND DAD AND MAYBE THEIR
  • 00:11:58.210 --> 00:12:02.250
  • GRANDPARENTS OR MOM AND DAD HAVE GONE TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:06.080
  • BUT THEN YOU BELIEVE TONIGHT.
  • 00:12:06.110 --> 00:12:09.080
  • IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THAT LOVED ONE THAT'S PRECEDED
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:11.160
  • YOU TO HEAVEN WOULD KNOW?
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:13.160
  • WELL LISTEN, IF A BIG GIANT PARTY IS GOING ON
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:15.220
  • NEXT DOOR, WILL YOU KNOW?
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:18.080
  • YEARS AGO I WAS DOING A CRUSADE AND I WAS GOING
  • 00:12:18.110 --> 00:12:22.180
  • TO BED FOR THE NIGHT.
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:23.220
  • IT WAS AROUND 10:30 AND I HEARD SOME MUSIC START UP
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:26.270
  • IN THE ROOM NEXT TO ME.
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:28.130
  • I MEAN THIS WAS LOUD MUSIC.
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:29.290
  • IT WAS THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:31.190
  • IT'S LIKE THE WALLS WERE VIBRATING.
  • 00:12:31.220 --> 00:12:33.150
  • I'M LIKE WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON.
  • 00:12:33.180 --> 00:12:35.160
  • WHAT KIND OF A SOUND SYSTEM DO THEY HAVE?
  • 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:37.140
  • AND IT GOT LOUDER AND LOUDER.
  • 00:12:37.170 --> 00:12:39.050
  • FINALLY, I CALLED THE FRONT DESK AND I SAID,
  • 00:12:39.080 --> 00:12:40.260
  • "THERE'S SOMETHING GOING ON NEXT TO ME.
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:42.140
  • CAN YOU PLEASE TELL THEM TO QUIET DOWN
  • 00:12:42.170 --> 00:12:44.270
  • AND DON'T TELL THEM I CALLED YOU, OKAY."
  • 00:12:45.000 --> 00:12:47.190
  • SO THEN SECURITY COMES UP.
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:49.280
  • I'M LOOKING THROUGH MY LITTLE PEEPHOLE
  • 00:12:50.010 --> 00:12:52.020
  • AND IS SEE THEM KNOCK ON THE DOOR.
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:54.030
  • THE DOOR OPENS AND I REALIZED WHAT WAS GOING ON.
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:57.050
  • A GUY WAS HAVING A BACHELOR PARTY.
  • 00:12:57.080 --> 00:12:59.180
  • HE HAD A SOUND SYSTEM, A DJ, LIGHTS AND ALL THESE
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:04.020
  • PEOPLE KEPT COMING OUT.
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:05.140
  • NO WONDER IT WAS LOUD. THEY WERE HAVING A PARTY.
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:09.110
  • THERE'S A PARTY IN HEAVEN EVERY TIME SOMEONE
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:13.060
  • BELIEVES IN JESUS.
  • 00:13:13.090 --> 00:13:14.180
  • WHY WOULDN'T YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:13:14.210 --> 00:13:16.120
  • I THINK YOU WOULD, YOU SEE.
  • 00:13:16.150 --> 00:13:18.270
  • [applause]
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:20.180
  • PEOPLE SAY, "WILL WE RECOGNIZE
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:22.030
  • ONE ANOTHER IN HEAVEN?"
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:23.150
  • DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BE MORE STUPID IN
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:26.100
  • HEAVEN THAN YOU ARE ON EARTH?
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:28.110
  • WELL, MAYBE I SHOULD ASK, DO YOU RECOGNIZE ONE
  • 00:13:28.140 --> 00:13:30.290
  • ANOTHER ON EARTH?
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:32.120
  • "NO, I'M GOING SENILE." WELL, IT'LL GET BETTER.
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:35.000
  • YES, YOU'LL RECOGNIZE ONE ANOTHER IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:37.290
  • YES, YOU'LL BE REUNITED WITH LOVED ONES IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:13:38.020 --> 00:13:41.270
  • IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING.
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:43.240
  • LET ME COME BACK TO THOSE QUESTIONS
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:45.000
  • I RAISED IN THE BEGINNING. THREE OF THEM.
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:47.180
  • WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME AFTER I DIE?
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:50.170
  • IS THERE REALLY A GOD?
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:52.270
  • AM I GOING TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:54.240
  • LET'S TAKE THAT FIRST QUESTION.
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.050
  • WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME AFTER I DIE?
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:59.150
  • WELL, YOUR BODY WILL GO INTO THE GROUND,
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:03.190
  • AND YOUR SOUL WILL ENTER THE AFTERLIFE.
  • 00:14:03.220 --> 00:14:08.260
  • YOUR SOUL WILL GO ON IMMEDIATELY INTO THE
  • 00:14:08.290 --> 00:14:11.270
  • PRESENCE OF GOD, IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER.
  • 00:14:12.000 --> 00:14:15.200
  • AND THEN ULTIMATELY, GOD WILL GIVE YOU A NEW BODY.
  • 00:14:15.230 --> 00:14:19.290
  • MY GRANDDAUGHTER ALLIE WHO IS HERE TONIGHT WAS WITH
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:24.000
  • ME THE OTHER NIGHT AND SHE LOOKED OVER AT ME
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:26.110
  • WITH SORT OF A SAD LOOK ON HER FACE.
  • 00:14:26.140 --> 00:14:27.290
  • SHE SAID, "POPPA, WHY DO WE HAVE TO DIE?"
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:32.110
  • AND I THINK WHAT SHE WAS REALLY THINKING ABOUT IS,
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:34.160
  • "POPPA, YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO DIE SOON."
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:37.140
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:37.270
  • [laughter]
  • 00:14:38.000 --> 00:14:39.090
  • "POPPA, WHY DO WE HAVE TO DIE?"
  • 00:14:39.120 --> 00:14:42.110
  • AND THEN SHE ASKED,
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:43.100
  • "WHY CAN'T WE JUST FLOAT UP TO HEAVEN?"
  • 00:14:43.130 --> 00:14:46.210
  • GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:48.100
  • THE ANSWER TO THAT IS BECAUSE OUR FIRST PARENTS,
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:51.090
  • ADAM AND EVE, SINNED; THUS SIN ENTERED THE HUMAN RACE.
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:57.000
  • IT WAS NEVER GOD'S INTENTION THAT
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:59.060
  • MEN AND WOMEN WOULD DIE.
  • 00:14:59.090 --> 00:15:02.060
  • IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN THERE WAS NO DEATH.
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:05.080
  • THERE WAS NO PAIN. THERE WERE NO TEARS.
  • 00:15:05.110 --> 00:15:09.090
  • THERE WERE NO POLICE OFFICERS, BUT MANKIND
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:13.110
  • REBELLED AGAINST GOD BECAUSE HE HAD A WILL
  • 00:15:13.140 --> 00:15:16.070
  • OF HIS OWN AND THAT REBELLION IS CALLED SIN.
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:19.060
  • BECAUSE OF THAT SIN, NOW WE HAVE DEATH.
  • 00:15:19.090 --> 00:15:22.240
  • IF ADAM AND EVE HAD NOT SINNED, WE WOULD'VE NEVER DIED.
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:26.060
  • IF ADAM AND EVE HAD NOT SINNED,
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:27.220
  • WE WOULD NEVER GET SICK.
  • 00:15:27.250 --> 00:15:29.270
  • IF ADAM AND EVE HAD NOT SINNED, WE WOULD NOT AGE.
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:33.050
  • IF ADAM AND EVE HAD NOT SINNED,
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:35.000
  • I WOULD HAVE HAIR RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:36.200
  • BUT THEY DID.
  • 00:15:36.230 --> 00:15:40.170
  • AND SIN, LIKE A DISEASE, ENTERED THE HUMAN RACE
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:44.220
  • AND WE'RE ALL BORN WITH IT.
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:46.250
  • WE'RE NOT SINNERS BECAUSE WE SIN; WE SIN BECAUSE
  • 00:15:46.280 --> 00:15:50.150
  • WE'RE SINNERS. IT COMES NATURALLY.
  • 00:15:50.180 --> 00:15:54.070
  • THE BIBLE SAYS ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:56.130
  • OF THE GLORY OF GOD. BUT LISTEN,
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:16:00.120
  • IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN, DEATH IS NOT THE END.
  • 00:16:00.150 --> 00:16:04.070
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THE WORLD WITH ALL OF ITS DESIRES IS
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:07.010
  • PASSING, BUT HE THAT DOES THE WILL OF GOD LIVES FOREVER.
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:10.270
  • JESUS SAID, "I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.
  • 00:16:11.000 --> 00:16:14.080
  • HE THAT BELIEVES IN ME, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD,
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:17.040
  • YET SHALL HE LIVE.
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:18.210
  • WHOSOEVER LIVES AND BELIEVES IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE."
  • 00:16:18.240 --> 00:16:22.070
  • THEN HE FOLLOWED THAT STATEMENT UP WITH A
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:23.230
  • QUESTION WHICH WAS "DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?"
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:27.030
  • I'M ASKING YOU TONIGHT, DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?
  • 00:16:27.060 --> 00:16:30.140
  • I REMINDED MY GRANDDAUGHTER ALLIE OF THE TIME
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:33.130
  • WE WERE WALKING ON THE BEACH
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:34.210
  • AND I STEPPED ON A BEE.
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:37.220
  • NOW, MY WIFE KEPT SAYING,
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:38.200
  • "CAREFUL. THERE'S BEES ON THE BEACH."
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:40.090
  • I THOUGHT I WON'T STEP ON ONE, AND THEN I STEPPED
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:41.270
  • ON ONE RIGHT AFTER SHE SAID THAT AND IT HURT.
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:45.280
  • I EVEN WENT TO THE LIFEGUARD STATION.
  • 00:16:46.010 --> 00:16:47.210
  • HELP ME! A BEE STING!
  • 00:16:47.240 --> 00:16:49.290
  • AND I REMINDED HER.
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.180
  • "REMEMBER WHEN IS STEPPED ON THAT BEE?'
  • 00:16:51.210 --> 00:16:53.070
  • SHE SAID "YEAH."
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:54.110
  • AND MY FOOT SWELLED UP JUST A LITTLE BIT,
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:56.190
  • BUT I TOOK THAT STINGER.
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:16:58.280
  • I SAID, "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN JESUS
  • 00:16:59.010 --> 00:17:01.280
  • DIED ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:17:02.010 --> 00:17:03.210
  • HE TOOK THE STING OF DEATH AND THAT IS WHY THE BIBLE
  • 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:07.250
  • SAYS, 'O, GRAVE, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY?
  • 00:17:07.280 --> 00:17:11.000
  • O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?' "
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:13.210
  • DEATH DIED WHEN CHRIST ROSE.
  • 00:17:13.240 --> 00:17:17.000
  • YOU LIVE FOREVER AS A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:19.110
  • THAT'S THE HOPE THAT THE BIBLE GIVES US.
  • 00:17:19.140 --> 00:17:22.120
  • [applause]
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:24.110
  • THAT BRINGS ME TO THE SECOND QUESTION.
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:26.280
  • IS THERE REALLY A GOD? HA!
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:30.060
  • THE NEWSBOYS REMINDED US GOD'S NOT DEAD.
  • 00:17:30.090 --> 00:17:32.250
  • HE'S SURELY ALIVE.
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.260
  • THERE IS A GOD AND HE'S HERE TONIGHT.
  • 00:17:34.290 --> 00:17:37.160
  • I'LL TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER.
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:40.060
  • SOME OF YOU WHO SAY YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD,
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:42.210
  • RIGHT NOW YOU ARE AWARE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:49.080
  • YOU'RE SAYING, "THERE'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT HERE
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:51.210
  • AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS."
  • 00:17:51.240 --> 00:17:53.270
  • THAT'S THE LORD. HE'S HERE.
  • 00:17:54.000 --> 00:17:57.200
  • JESUS SAID, "WHEN TWO OR MORE ARE GATHERED TOGETHER
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:18:00.120
  • IN MY NAME, I AM THERE IN THE MIDST OF IT.
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:03.170
  • JESUS SAID, OR THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:06.110
  • "SEEK THE LORD WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND.
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:08.010
  • CALL UPON HIM WHILE HE IS NEAR.
  • 00:18:08.040 --> 00:18:12.090
  • LET THE WICKED MAN FORSAKE HIS THOUGHTS AND TURN TO
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:16.120
  • GOD WHO WILL PARDON YOU.
  • 00:18:16.150 --> 00:18:18.200
  • GOD IS NEAR TONIGHT. GOD IS HERE TONIGHT.
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:22.000
  • GOD IS READY TO CHANGE YOU TONIGHT, BUT YOU NEED TO
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:25.160
  • REACH OUT TO HIM AND SAY, "LORD, I WANT TO KNOW YOU."
  • 00:18:25.190 --> 00:18:28.220
  • YES, GOD IS REAL, BUT DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOU DIE
  • 00:18:28.250 --> 00:18:33.200
  • TO FIGURE THAT OUT BECAUSE THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE.
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:37.230
  • EVERY MAN AND EVERY WOMAN WILL STAND BEFORE GOD IN
  • 00:18:37.260 --> 00:18:40.270
  • WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS THE GREAT WHITE THRONE
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:43.150
  • JUDGEMENT, AND IF YOUR NAME IS NOT FOUND WRITTEN
  • 00:18:43.180 --> 00:18:46.130
  • IN THE BOOK OF LIFE AS IT'S CALLED, THE BIBLE
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:49.100
  • SAYS YOU'LL BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:52.110
  • SOME OF YOU ARE SAYING,
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:53.210
  • "AW, MAN. I WAS TRACKING WITH YOU TILL YOU SAID THAT."
  • 00:18:53.240 --> 00:18:56.150
  • HEY, MAN, IT'S THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:18:56.180 --> 00:18:59.120
  • I'M NOT GOING TO LEAVE THAT PART OUT BECAUSE
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:01.260
  • IT'S HARD TO SWALLOW. IT'S REAL.
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:04.020
  • I DON'T CARE IF 69 PERCENT OF AMERICANS BELIEVE
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:07.110
  • IN HELL AND MORE BELIEVE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:09.180
  • HELL IS AS REAL AS HEAVEN.
  • 00:19:09.210 --> 00:19:11.230
  • HELL IS AS ETERNAL AS HEAVEN, AND THE LAST THING
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:14.220
  • GOD WANTS IS FOR ANY PERSON TO GO TO HELL.
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:17.170
  • THAT'S WHY JESUS CAME TO THIS EARTH
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:21.240
  • ON A RESCUE OPERATION AND DIED IN OUR PLACE.
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:26.140
  • HE CAME TO PAY A DEBT HE DID NOT OWE BECAUSE
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:29.030
  • WE OWED A DEBT WE COULD NOT PAY.
  • 00:19:29.060 --> 00:19:32.240
  • YES, GOD IS REAL. ONE LAST QUESTION.
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:35.270
  • PEOPLE ASK WHEN THEY'RE DYING,
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:39.140
  • THEY ASK MINISTERS, THEY ASK HOSPICE WORKERS,
  • 00:19:39.170 --> 00:19:43.270
  • HERE IT IS: WILL I BE GOING TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:19:44.000 --> 00:19:47.050
  • THAT'S ENTIRELY UP TO YOU.
  • 00:19:47.080 --> 00:19:50.020
  • I HEARD ABOUT A PREACHER THAT WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:19:50.050 --> 00:19:52.020
  • HEAVEN ONE NIGHT AND HE SAID TO HIS CHURCH,
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:54.270
  • "HOW MANY OF YOU WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN TONIGHT?"
  • 00:19:55.000 --> 00:19:58.080
  • EVERYBODY SHOT UP THEIR HAND EXCEPT ONE LITTLE BOY.
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:20:00.290
  • AND THE PREACHER POINTED AT THE LITTLE BOY AND
  • 00:20:01.020 --> 00:20:03.140
  • SAID, "SON, DON'T YOU WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN?"
  • 00:20:03.170 --> 00:20:06.110
  • AND THE LITTLE GUY SAID, "YES, I DO, BUT I THOUGHT
  • 00:20:06.140 --> 00:20:08.130
  • YOU WERE GETTING A LOAD UP TONIGHT."
  • 00:20:08.160 --> 00:20:10.270
  • HE DIDN'T WANT TO GO QUITE YET.
  • 00:20:11.000 --> 00:20:14.040
  • BUT LISTEN, IF YOU WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:16.180
  • BE FORGIVEN OF YOUR SIN. HERE'S THE WEIRD THING.
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:19.080
  • WE THINK HELL IS FOR BAD PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:21.260
  • HEAVEN IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE AND BECAUSE
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:24.050
  • I'M A GOOD PERSON I'M GOING TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:26.270
  • OH, YEAH? SAYS WHO?
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:29.050
  • IS THIS YOUR DEFINITION OF GOOD?
  • 00:20:29.080 --> 00:20:31.040
  • "WELL, YES IT IS."
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:32.090
  • WE HAVE TO GO BY GOD'S DEFINITION.
  • 00:20:32.120 --> 00:20:35.030
  • LISTEN, WE WOULDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HEAVEN
  • 00:20:35.060 --> 00:20:37.090
  • IF WE DIDN'T READ ABOUT IT IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:20:37.120 --> 00:20:39.160
  • THAT'S WHERE WE READ ABOUT HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:39.190 --> 00:20:41.010
  • YOU CAN'T JUST TAKE HEAVEN AND COME UP WITH YOUR OWN
  • 00:20:41.040 --> 00:20:43.290
  • IDEA ABOUT IT AND YOUR OWN WAY TO GET THERE.
  • 00:20:44.020 --> 00:20:46.190
  • SO IT'S NOT THAT HELL IS FOR BAD PEOPLE
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:50.160
  • AND HEAVEN IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:50.190 --> 00:20:52.010
  • LISTEN, THIS IS GOING TO SHOCK SOME.
  • 00:20:52.040 --> 00:20:55.160
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME "GOOD" PEOPLE IN HELL.
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:59.140
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME "BAD" PEOPLE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:02.070
  • LET ME EXPLAIN.
  • 00:21:02.100 --> 00:21:03.240
  • WE SAY, "I'M A GOOD PERSON.
  • 00:21:03.270 --> 00:21:05.110
  • I'M A MORAL PERSON."
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:07.120
  • YEAH BUT LISTEN, AS GOOD AS YOU ARE, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:11.040
  • GOOD ENOUGH TO GET TO HEAVEN BECAUSE EVERYONE
  • 00:21:11.070 --> 00:21:13.200
  • SINS AND FALLS SHORT OF GOD'S GLORY.
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:16.180
  • EVERYONE BREAKS HIS COMMANDMENTS SO THERE'LL BE
  • 00:21:16.210 --> 00:21:18.200
  • SOME "GOOD," AND I'LL PUT THAT WORD IN QUOTES,
  • 00:21:18.230 --> 00:21:20.210
  • SOME "GOOD" PEOPLE IN HELL THAT THOUGHT THEY WERE
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:23.180
  • GOOD ENOUGH TO GET THERE ON THEIR OWN.
  • 00:21:23.210 --> 00:21:25.120
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO GET TO HEAVEN AND THAT IS
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:28.030
  • THROUGH GOD'S SON JESUS CHRIST WHO DIED
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:31.150
  • ON THE CROSS FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:33.040
  • [applause]
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:36.200
  • BUT THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME "BAD" PEOPLE IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:36.230 --> 00:21:39.020
  • NOW, BY BAD I MEAN THEY WERE SINNERS.
  • 00:21:39.050 --> 00:21:41.090
  • THEY DID A LOT OF CRAZY STUFF, BUT THEY ASKED GOD
  • 00:21:41.120 --> 00:21:44.120
  • TO FORGIVE THEM; THUS THEY'RE GOING TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:48.150
  • HEAVEN IS NOT FOR GOOD PEOPLE; LISTEN, HEAVEN IS
  • 00:21:48.180 --> 00:21:51.260
  • FOR FORGIVEN PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:51.290 --> 00:21:53.240
  • AND YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN OF ALL OF YOUR SINS TONIGHT.
  • 00:21:53.270 --> 00:21:57.220
  • [applause]
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:21:59.280
  • BILLY GRAHAM WAS ONCE DOING A
  • 00:22:00.030 --> 00:22:01.190
  • CRUSADE IN A SMALL TOWN.
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:03.130
  • HE WROTE A LETTER AND HE WANTED TO MAIL IT AND SO
  • 00:22:03.160 --> 00:22:06.220
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE THE POST OFFICE WAS.
  • 00:22:06.250 --> 00:22:09.080
  • HE FOUND A LITTLE BOY AND HE SAID, "SON, CAN YOU
  • 00:22:09.110 --> 00:22:11.280
  • TELL ME WHERE THE POST OFFICE IS?"
  • 00:22:12.010 --> 00:22:13.230
  • THE LITTLE GUY SAID, "YEAH, IT'S RIGHT OVER THERE, SIR.
  • 00:22:13.260 --> 00:22:16.070
  • JUST GO UP THAT BLOCK, TURN RIGHT, AND YOU'LL SEE IT."
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:19.080
  • THEN BILLY GRAHAM SAID, "YOUNG MAN, I WANTED YOU
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:22.140
  • TO KNOW I'M PREACHING IN A STADIUM IN THIS CITY
  • 00:22:22.170 --> 00:22:24.270
  • TONIGHT AND I WOULD LIKE YOU TO COME AND HEAR ME
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:27.260
  • AND I'LL TELL YOU HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN."
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:30.120
  • THE LITTLE BOY SAID, "WHY SHOULD I HEAR YOU TALK
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:32.270
  • ABOUT HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:22:33.000 --> 00:22:34.080
  • YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO GET TO THE POST OFFICE."
  • 00:22:34.110 --> 00:22:36.220
  • [laughter]
  • 00:22:36.250 --> 00:22:39.120
  • HOW DO YOU GET TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:22:39.150 --> 00:22:41.210
  • 1. YOU HAVE TO ADMIT YOU'RE A SINNER.
  • 00:22:41.240 --> 00:22:45.020
  • I'VE ALREADY POINTED OUT THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:22:45.050 --> 00:22:46.270
  • "ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF GOD'S GLORY."
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:50.050
  • EVERY ONE OF US HAVE BROKEN HIS COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:22:50.080 --> 00:22:52.130
  • EVERYBODY NEEDS FORGIVENESS, BUT THEN
  • 00:22:52.160 --> 00:22:55.090
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "IF YOU CONFESS YOUR SIN, HE IS
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:58.020
  • FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE YOU YOUR SIN AND
  • 00:22:58.050 --> 00:23:00.290
  • CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS."
  • 00:23:01.020 --> 00:23:02.280
  • SOME OF YOU ARE SAYING, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN CONFESS?
  • 00:23:03.010 --> 00:23:04.210
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN FORGIVE?
  • 00:23:04.240 --> 00:23:06.160
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY CLEANSE?"
  • 00:23:06.190 --> 00:23:08.100
  • OKAY. CONFESS JUST MEANS YOU AGREE.
  • 00:23:08.130 --> 00:23:11.180
  • SO LET'S SAY YOU AND I ARE STANDING HERE AND WE SAY,
  • 00:23:11.210 --> 00:23:14.200
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S A NICE WARM NIGHT HERE
  • 00:23:14.230 --> 00:23:16.280
  • IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. AND YOU SAY "I AGREE."
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:19.270
  • WE AGREE ON SOMETHING.
  • 00:23:20.000 --> 00:23:21.100
  • SO TO CONFESS MY SIN MEANS I AGREE WITH GOD ABOUT IT.
  • 00:23:21.130 --> 00:23:24.080
  • GOD SAYS, "I HATE SIN." YOU SAY, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:23:24.110 --> 00:23:27.030
  • I HATE IT TOO." OKAY. SO YOU AGREE.
  • 00:23:27.060 --> 00:23:30.110
  • IF YOU'LL CONFESS YOUR SIN, IF YOU'LL AGREE WITH
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:32.040
  • GOD, HE'S FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:23:32.070 --> 00:23:35.030
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:36.050
  • FORGIVE MEANS HE'S GOING TO REMOVE IT FROM YOU.
  • 00:23:36.080 --> 00:23:39.260
  • BUT LISTEN TO THIS, GOD DOESN'T JUST FORGIVE YOU
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:42.090
  • OF YOUR SIN, HE FORGETS YOUR SIN AS FAR AS THE
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:45.130
  • EAST IS FROM THE WEST IS AS FAR AS GOD WILL
  • 00:23:45.160 --> 00:23:48.120
  • PUT YOUR SIN FOR YOU.
  • 00:23:48.150 --> 00:23:51.120
  • OUR GOD HAS A BIG ERASER AND HE WANTS TO USE
  • 00:23:51.150 --> 00:23:54.050
  • IT IN YOUR LIFE TONIGHT.
  • 00:23:54.080 --> 00:23:56.070
  • YOU CAN PUT YOUR SIN IN YOUR REARVIEW MIRROR.
  • 00:23:56.100 --> 00:23:59.180
  • YES, IT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU.
  • 00:23:59.210 --> 00:24:01.210
  • YOU HAVE TO ADMIT YOU'RE A SINNER.
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:03.130
  • THEN YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND, JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS
  • 00:24:03.160 --> 00:24:06.120
  • FOR YOU. WHAT IS GOD LIKE?
  • 00:24:06.150 --> 00:24:09.090
  • JESUS SAID, "HE THAT HAS SEEN ME, HAS SEEN THE FATHER."
  • 00:24:09.120 --> 00:24:13.200
  • JESUS WAS GOD WITH A FACE.
  • 00:24:13.230 --> 00:24:17.110
  • JESUS WAS GOD WITH SKIN ON.
  • 00:24:17.140 --> 00:24:20.160
  • JESUS WALKED THIS EARTH. HE WALKED IN OUR SHOES.
  • 00:24:20.190 --> 00:24:24.180
  • HE BREATHED OUR AIR. HE LIVED OUR LIVES.
  • 00:24:24.210 --> 00:24:29.040
  • THEN HE DIED OUR DEATH AND HE ROSE AGAIN.
  • 00:24:29.070 --> 00:24:32.150
  • WHAT IS GOD LIKE? HE'S JESUS.
  • 00:24:32.180 --> 00:24:34.090
  • JESUS IS GOD.
  • 00:24:34.120 --> 00:24:35.250
  • WHO IS JESUS? HE WALKED THIS EARTH.
  • 00:24:35.280 --> 00:24:38.210
  • HE LOVED PEOPLE. HE FORGAVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:38.240 --> 00:24:41.040
  • HE REACHED OUT TO HURTING PEOPLE AND HE DIED FOR ALL
  • 00:24:41.070 --> 00:24:44.140
  • PEOPLE INCLUDING YOU AND ME.
  • 00:24:44.170 --> 00:24:47.080
  • YOU HAVE TO REALIZE JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:47.110 --> 00:24:49.210
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID,
  • 00:24:49.240 --> 00:24:51.180
  • "HE LOVED ME AND HE GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME."
  • 00:24:51.210 --> 00:24:55.020
  • YEAH, IT'S TRUE THAT GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE GAVE
  • 00:24:55.050 --> 00:24:58.140
  • HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON AND WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM
  • 00:24:58.170 --> 00:25:01.110
  • SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:25:01.140 --> 00:25:04.180
  • BUT DON'T FORGET THIS, CHRIST DIED FOR YOU.
  • 00:25:04.210 --> 00:25:07.210
  • IT WASN'T NAILS THAT HELD HIM TO THAT CROSS
  • 00:25:07.240 --> 00:25:10.120
  • 2.000 YEARS AGO. IT WAS LOVE FOR YOU.
  • 00:25:10.150 --> 00:25:14.080
  • JESUS SAID, "GREATER LOVE HAS NO MAN THAN THIS
  • 00:25:14.110 --> 00:25:17.020
  • THAN HE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS."
  • 00:25:17.050 --> 00:25:20.070
  • HE LAID IT DOWN. HE DIED IN YOUR PLACE.
  • 00:25:20.100 --> 00:25:23.200
  • SO WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO ABOUT IT YOU ASK?
  • 00:25:23.230 --> 00:25:26.030
  • YOU NEED TO REPENT OF YOUR SIN.
  • 00:25:26.060 --> 00:25:28.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, GOD HAS COMMANDED PEOPLE
  • 00:25:28.080 --> 00:25:30.180
  • EVERYWHERE TO REPENT. WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?
  • 00:25:30.210 --> 00:25:34.140
  • IT MEANS TURN FROM YOUR OLD LIFE.
  • 00:25:34.170 --> 00:25:37.200
  • IT'S ACTUALLY A MILITARY TERM, YOU THAT ARE IN THE
  • 00:25:37.230 --> 00:25:40.210
  • MILITARY UNDERSTAND THIS; IT MEANS AN ABOUT-FACE.
  • 00:25:40.240 --> 00:25:43.170
  • SO YOU'RE WALKING AWAY FROM GOD.
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:45.280
  • NOW, YOU'RE GOING TO WALK TOWARD GOD.
  • 00:25:46.010 --> 00:25:48.040
  • THEN, YOU MUST RECEIVE CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:25:48.070 --> 00:25:51.220
  • THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:25:51.250 --> 00:25:55.040
  • IT'S ASKING GOD HIMSELF TO COME
  • 00:25:55.070 --> 00:25:57.220
  • AND TAKE RESIDENCE IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:25:57.250 --> 00:26:00.130
  • YOU'RE SAYING, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN IN MY HEART?
  • 00:26:00.160 --> 00:26:02.270
  • IS JESUS GOING TO GET REALLY SMALL
  • 00:26:03.000 --> 00:26:04.260
  • AND CLIMB INSIDE OF THERE?"
  • 00:26:04.290 --> 00:26:06.110
  • I HEARD ABOUT A LITTLE GIRL THAT WAS WITH HER
  • 00:26:06.140 --> 00:26:08.260
  • MOMMY AND SHE SAID, "MOMMY, WHERE IS JESUS?"
  • 00:26:08.290 --> 00:26:11.020
  • MOMMY SAID, "JESUS IS IN MY HEART."
  • 00:26:11.050 --> 00:26:13.200
  • SO THE LITTLE GIRL PUT HER EAR UP AGAINST HER MOMMY'S
  • 00:26:13.230 --> 00:26:16.040
  • CHEST AND HER MOMMY WAS A LITTLE BIT HUNGRY SO HER
  • 00:26:16.070 --> 00:26:19.050
  • STOMACH WAS GURGLING AND HER LITTLE GIRL SAYS,
  • 00:26:19.080 --> 00:26:21.180
  • "MOM, IT SOUNDS LIKE HE'S MAKING
  • 00:26:21.210 --> 00:26:23.060
  • COFFEE IN THERE RIGHT NOW."
  • 00:26:23.090 --> 00:26:24.190
  • [laughter]
  • 00:26:24.220 --> 00:26:26.190
  • THIS IS A WORD PICTURE.
  • 00:26:26.220 --> 00:26:29.120
  • WHEN WE SAY ASK CHRIST INTO OUR HEART WHAT WE
  • 00:26:29.150 --> 00:26:32.060
  • MEAN IS GOD LITERALLY COMES AND LIVES INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:26:32.090 --> 00:26:35.200
  • THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE SAYS YOU BECOME
  • 00:26:35.230 --> 00:26:37.200
  • A NEW PERSON IN CHRIST. OLD THINGS PASS AWAY.
  • 00:26:37.230 --> 00:26:40.270
  • EVERYTHING BECOMES FRESH AND NEW.
  • 00:26:41.000 --> 00:26:43.210
  • I LOVE IT RIGHT AFTER IT RAINS.
  • 00:26:43.240 --> 00:26:47.260
  • FOR STARTERS, EVERYBODY GETS THEIR CAR WASHED,
  • 00:26:47.290 --> 00:26:50.250
  • BUT ALSO YOU MIGHT SEE A RAINBOW.
  • 00:26:50.280 --> 00:26:54.120
  • EVERYTHING IS CLEAN AND FRESH.
  • 00:26:54.150 --> 00:26:55.260
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BELIEVE.
  • 00:26:55.290 --> 00:26:57.290
  • YOU GO FROM BLACK AND WHITE TO LIVING COLOR.
  • 00:26:58.020 --> 00:27:00.280
  • YOU GO FROM DEATH AND DESTRUCTION TO LIFE AND PURPOSE.
  • 00:27:01.010 --> 00:27:05.110
  • IT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU IF YOU WILL SAY,
  • 00:27:05.140 --> 00:27:08.030
  • "JESUS, COME INTO MY LIFE AND FORGIVE ME OF MY SIN."
  • 00:27:08.060 --> 00:27:13.090
  • [Phil Wickham: This is the Day] THIS IS THE DAY
  • 00:27:13.120 --> 00:27:14.080
  • WHEN THE LOST ARE FOUND.
  • 00:27:14.110 --> 00:27:16.140
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING
  • 00:27:16.170 --> 00:27:20.220
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:27:20.250 --> 00:27:21.250
