  • - Turn with me real quick
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:17.130
  • to 2 Kings 4,
  • 00:00:17.130 --> 00:00:19.280
  • let's begin reading
  • 00:00:19.280 --> 00:00:21.220
  • with 2 Kings 4:32.
  • 00:00:21.220 --> 00:00:24.080
  • "When Elisha came
  • 00:00:24.080 --> 00:00:25.040
  • into the house,
  • 00:00:25.040 --> 00:00:26.080
  • there was a child lying dead
  • 00:00:26.080 --> 00:00:27.190
  • on the bed.
  • 00:00:27.190 --> 00:00:29.150
  • He went in therefore,
  • 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:30.160
  • and shut the door between
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:31.230
  • the two of them,
  • 00:00:31.230 --> 00:00:32.280
  • and prayed to the Lord.
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:34.170
  • He went up and laid
  • 00:00:34.170 --> 00:00:35.200
  • on the child."
  • 00:00:35.200 --> 00:00:38.050
  • This is so strange:
  • 00:00:38.050 --> 00:00:39.080
  • "Put his mouth on his mouth,
  • 00:00:39.080 --> 00:00:41.280
  • his eyes on his eyes,"
  • 00:00:41.280 --> 00:00:44.040
  • notice the detail
  • 00:00:44.040 --> 00:00:44.290
  • of the scripture:
  • 00:00:44.290 --> 00:00:46.070
  • "His hands
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:47.190
  • on the dead child's hands.
  • 00:00:47.190 --> 00:00:50.110
  • Stretched himself out
  • 00:00:50.110 --> 00:00:52.030
  • on the child, and the child --
  • 00:00:53.220 --> 00:00:56.220
  • the flesh of the child
  • 00:00:56.220 --> 00:00:57.200
  • became warm.
  • 00:00:57.200 --> 00:00:59.180
  • He returned, walked back
  • 00:00:59.180 --> 00:01:01.000
  • and forth in the house,
  • 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:02.200
  • and again went up
  • 00:01:02.200 --> 00:01:04.280
  • and stretched himself on him.
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:07.050
  • Then the child sneezed
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:08.220
  • seven times,
  • 00:01:08.220 --> 00:01:11.070
  • and the child opened his eyes."
  • 00:01:11.070 --> 00:01:13.250
  • Want to talk to you
  • 00:01:13.250 --> 00:01:14.140
  • about this amazing story.
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:17.220
  • Life was not there
  • 00:01:17.220 --> 00:01:18.230
  • in this child,
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:20.080
  • until the seventh sneeze.
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:22.260
  • Life did not come
  • 00:01:22.260 --> 00:01:24.010
  • until the child sneezed,
  • 00:01:24.010 --> 00:01:26.070
  • not one time,
  • 00:01:26.070 --> 00:01:27.050
  • not three times,
  • 00:01:27.050 --> 00:01:28.070
  • not five times, but seven times.
  • 00:01:29.160 --> 00:01:32.160
  • You know this story,
  • 00:01:32.160 --> 00:01:33.140
  • if you've ever read
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:34.210
  • the Bible much.
  • 00:01:34.210 --> 00:01:35.250
  • Let me remind you of what
  • 00:01:35.250 --> 00:01:37.250
  • I didn't have time to read.
  • 00:01:37.270 --> 00:01:40.270
  • This child was working
  • 00:01:40.270 --> 00:01:42.160
  • in the field with his father,
  • 00:01:42.160 --> 00:01:45.160
  • reaping the harvest.
  • 00:01:45.160 --> 00:01:47.230
  • He was working for the father,
  • 00:01:47.230 --> 00:01:49.200
  • in the field,
  • 00:01:49.200 --> 00:01:51.170
  • reaping the harvest.
  • 00:01:51.170 --> 00:01:53.270
  • And it was the heat of the day,
  • 00:01:53.270 --> 00:01:56.100
  • the Bible said.
  • 00:01:56.100 --> 00:01:58.230
  • And the child had
  • 00:01:58.260 --> 00:02:01.280
  • something happen mentally
  • 00:02:01.280 --> 00:02:04.130
  • to him, the sun, many believe --
  • 00:02:04.130 --> 00:02:06.190
  • the sun caused a sun-stroke,
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:09.080
  • probably is what happened.
  • 00:02:09.080 --> 00:02:11.270
  • And when the child had an issue,
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:14.110
  • because of the heat
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:15.180
  • or the pressure of the day,
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.270
  • working in the field
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:18.190
  • for his father,
  • 00:02:18.190 --> 00:02:20.080
  • he cries out suddenly
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:21.160
  • to the father,
  • 00:02:21.160 --> 00:02:22.170
  • "My head, my head."
  • 00:02:22.260 --> 00:02:25.260
  • And the father said,
  • 00:02:25.260 --> 00:02:27.020
  • "Take him to his mother."
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:29.090
  • She takes him
  • 00:02:29.090 --> 00:02:32.040
  • and it feels lifeless.
  • 00:02:33.000 --> 00:02:36.000
  • But taken to the seed
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:37.030
  • of his origin.
  • 00:02:37.030 --> 00:02:39.220
  • Taken back where the child
  • 00:02:39.220 --> 00:02:41.210
  • in him can be resurrected.
  • 00:02:42.010 --> 00:02:45.010
  • A lot of Christians are crying,
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:46.100
  • "My head, my head."
  • 00:02:46.100 --> 00:02:48.140
  • The pressures of life,
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:49.170
  • the irritants of life, the sun,
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:52.160
  • so-to-speak,
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:53.060
  • beating down on them.
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:55.110
  • But the child's miracle
  • 00:02:55.110 --> 00:02:58.070
  • happened when this mother
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:03:01.200
  • laid him in the bed,
  • 00:03:01.200 --> 00:03:04.080
  • and the Bible said she had made
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:06.010
  • a bed for the supernatural
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:08.250
  • in her house,
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:09.290
  • and she lays this child,
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:12.070
  • and when she lays him
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.030
  • in the bed,
  • 00:03:13.030 --> 00:03:14.130
  • she's putting him
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:15.030
  • in miracle territory.
  • 00:03:15.180 --> 00:03:18.180
  • And the Bible said
  • 00:03:18.180 --> 00:03:19.060
  • she sent for the prophet,
  • 00:03:19.060 --> 00:03:20.140
  • and the prophet came.
  • 00:03:20.140 --> 00:03:22.020
  • And the first thing
  • 00:03:22.020 --> 00:03:22.240
  • that the prophet does
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:24.140
  • is the Bible said this prophet,
  • 00:03:24.140 --> 00:03:26.100
  • symbolic of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:29.250
  • laid on top of him, and said,
  • 00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:31.170
  • "Are you ready for a miracle,
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:32.230
  • dead boy?"
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:35.110
  • Then it begins when you start
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:37.010
  • stretching for it.
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:39.290
  • And when he started
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:40.260
  • stretching him,
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:42.230
  • the next thing the Bible said
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:44.040
  • he did is he put his hands
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:46.130
  • on the boy's hands.
  • 00:03:46.130 --> 00:03:49.100
  • And he put his mouth
  • 00:03:49.220 --> 00:03:52.220
  • on the boy's mouth.
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:54.240
  • And he put his eyes,
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.200
  • it's very specific,
  • 00:03:56.200 --> 00:03:58.030
  • on the boy's eyes.
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:00.260
  • A resurrection of the hands
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:04.010
  • represents a resurrection
  • 00:04:04.010 --> 00:04:05.200
  • of the work.
  • 00:04:05.200 --> 00:04:07.240
  • A resurrection of the eyes
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:10.160
  • represents a resurrection
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:12.160
  • of the vision.
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:15.000
  • A resurrection of the mouth
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:17.000
  • represents a resurrection
  • 00:04:17.000 --> 00:04:18.200
  • of the Word.
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:20.160
  • And he lays his hands
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:21.260
  • on the boy's hands,
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.210
  • his mouth on the boy's mouth,
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:26.000
  • his eyes on the boy's eyes,
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:28.280
  • and he's saying,
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:29.250
  • "I'm going to resurrect
  • 00:04:29.250 --> 00:04:31.030
  • the work,
  • 00:04:31.030 --> 00:04:32.060
  • I'm going to resurrect
  • 00:04:32.060 --> 00:04:33.150
  • not only the work,
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:34.270
  • but I'm going to resurrect
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:37.000
  • the vision,
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:39.150
  • and I'm going to resurrect
  • 00:04:39.150 --> 00:04:41.010
  • the Word of God in your mouth."
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:43.240
  • I'm telling you that when
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:45.150
  • we get down and we feel weary,
  • 00:04:45.150 --> 00:04:48.060
  • and we feel like
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.090
  • we're caving in mentally,
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:51.190
  • the Holy Spirit wants
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:52.160
  • to walk into our life,
  • 00:04:52.160 --> 00:04:54.090
  • and put His hands on our hands,
  • 00:04:54.090 --> 00:04:56.180
  • and say,
  • 00:04:56.180 --> 00:04:57.050
  • "The work is not going down,
  • 00:04:57.050 --> 00:04:59.070
  • it's coming back up.
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:01.010
  • And the word that I gave you
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:03.030
  • is not going to fall
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:04.080
  • to the ground.
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:05.020
  • I'm going to make it
  • 00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:06.080
  • come alive again."
  • 00:05:06.080 --> 00:05:07.090
  • There's power in the Word.
  • 00:05:07.280 --> 00:05:10.280
  • "And that vision that seems
  • 00:05:10.280 --> 00:05:12.290
  • closed off and shut off
  • 00:05:12.290 --> 00:05:15.050
  • and dead, I'm going to open
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:16.100
  • those eyes again, and I'm going
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:18.150
  • to revive and resurrect
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:19.240
  • the vision that I gave you
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:21.170
  • when I called you."
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:22.260
  • Somebody praise Him
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:23.280
  • for the resurrection
  • 00:05:23.280 --> 00:05:25.220
  • of the Word, the work,
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:27.080
  • and the vision.
  • 00:05:27.080 --> 00:05:28.030
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:29.150
  • Get back -- the whole key
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:31.170
  • to it is the woman said,
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:33.200
  • "I got to get that boy back
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:35.070
  • to the original power."
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:37.270
  • The original power
  • 00:05:37.270 --> 00:05:39.060
  • of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:41.130
  • who can resurrect the work,
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:44.050
  • he can resurrect the vision,
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:46.280
  • he can resurrect not only
  • 00:05:47.150 --> 00:05:50.150
  • the work and the vision,
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:51.230
  • but the Word.
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:56.070
  • The scripture said that
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:59.190
  • when he laid on him,
  • 00:05:59.190 --> 00:06:02.200
  • the King James says:
  • 00:06:02.200 --> 00:06:03.230
  • "He waxed warm."
  • 00:06:03.230 --> 00:06:05.170
  • I like that.
  • 00:06:05.170 --> 00:06:06.220
  • He's dead,
  • 00:06:06.220 --> 00:06:08.040
  • he's not resurrected yet,
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:10.000
  • but the first time
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:10.230
  • he laid on him, he waxed warm.
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:14.100
  • The word waxed means slowly.
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:17.180
  • Slowly warming up.
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:19.020
  • It didn't happen all at once.
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:22.040
  • He laid down,
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:24.120
  • and the prophet
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:25.160
  • felt the boy warming up.
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:27.010
  • He wasn't alive yet,
  • 00:06:27.010 --> 00:06:28.120
  • but things were getting warmer.
  • 00:06:28.120 --> 00:06:30.270
  • You may not have your
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.010
  • whole miracle yet,
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:33.060
  • but you got to learn to rejoice
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:34.130
  • when things get warmer.
  • 00:06:34.130 --> 00:06:36.200
  • You may not see everything
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:37.290
  • you're believing for,
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:39.120
  • and have it all,
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:40.170
  • but I'll tell you,
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:41.290
  • it's getting hot in here.
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:44.010
  • And you have to learn
  • 00:06:44.010 --> 00:06:45.240
  • to go with God when you don't
  • 00:06:45.240 --> 00:06:48.210
  • see the fullness of the miracle,
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:50.090
  • but at least
  • 00:06:50.090 --> 00:06:51.220
  • it's getting warmer.
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:56.000
  • I can feel a warming trend.
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:58.210
  • Things are getting better.
  • 00:06:58.210 --> 00:06:59.230
  • Come on, talk like that.
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:01.290
  • Things are getting better.
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:02.220
  • It's getting better.
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:03.200
  • It's getting better.
  • 00:07:03.200 --> 00:07:04.190
  • It's getting better.
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:05.220
  • Doesn't that sound crazy?
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:06.220
  • Feed your faith,
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:07.150
  • not your fears.
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:08.200
  • Get a good image of victory
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:10.070
  • and stick with it, hallelujah.
  • 00:07:10.070 --> 00:07:12.160
  • It's warming up.
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:13.290
  • It's getting better.
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:15.040
  • The marriage is getting better.
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:16.070
  • The children are getting better.
  • 00:07:16.070 --> 00:07:17.220
  • The finances are getting better.
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.080
  • Talk the Word of God,
  • 00:07:19.080 --> 00:07:20.200
  • speak the -- let Him resurrect
  • 00:07:20.200 --> 00:07:22.070
  • your words.
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:23.050
  • Let Him resurrect your vision.
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:24.260
  • Let Him resurrect your work.
  • 00:07:24.260 --> 00:07:27.260
  • It's getting better.
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:28.220
  • Somebody shout,
  • 00:07:28.220 --> 00:07:29.120
  • "It's getting better."
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:34.080
  • The Bible said when he did that,
  • 00:07:34.080 --> 00:07:35.260
  • the boy started sneezing
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:37.030
  • seven times.
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:39.100
  • If you look up sneeze
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.180
  • in the dictionary,
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:41.240
  • it says an involuntary
  • 00:07:41.240 --> 00:07:43.130
  • catching of breath,
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:45.110
  • and expelling it violently.
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:47.290
  • Usually, because something
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:49.140
  • irritating is caught
  • 00:07:49.140 --> 00:07:51.100
  • And what you're saying is,
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:58.200
  • "Get out."
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:08:00.210
  • You're hindering my breath.
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:03.000
  • Get out.
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:13.110
  • And there were seven sneezes
  • 00:08:15.060 --> 00:08:18.060
  • in the Book of Acts.
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:20.220
  • The church started out powerful,
  • 00:08:20.220 --> 00:08:23.090
  • on fire, winning thousands
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:25.050
  • and thousands of souls,
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:26.180
  • turning cities
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:27.160
  • in the world upside down.
  • 00:08:27.160 --> 00:08:29.040
  • Signs and wonders and miracles
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:31.010
  • and power and glory.
  • 00:08:31.010 --> 00:08:33.240
  • But then, something started
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:34.260
  • hurting the Body of Christ,
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:36.290
  • and it's ability
  • 00:08:36.290 --> 00:08:38.030
  • to breathe in the wind
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:39.130
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:39.130 --> 00:08:41.070
  • And they had to sneeze,
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:42.160
  • we have to sneeze
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:43.060
  • the seven sneezes.
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:46.260
  • The first sneeze is found
  • 00:08:46.260 --> 00:08:48.270
  • in Acts, when they had
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:52.170
  • to sneeze out getting it done
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:54.080
  • without the supernatural.
  • 00:08:54.120 --> 00:08:57.120
  • We have become a bunch of
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:08:58.130
  • professionals in the church.
  • 00:08:58.130 --> 00:09:01.100
  • We think that if
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:02.160
  • we're smart enough
  • 00:09:02.160 --> 00:09:03.150
  • and we're programmed enough
  • 00:09:03.150 --> 00:09:04.210
  • and we're pretty enough,
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:06.280
  • and we're cute enough,
  • 00:09:06.280 --> 00:09:08.040
  • and our lights are good enough,
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:09.210
  • and our musicians
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:10.240
  • are cool enough,
  • 00:09:10.240 --> 00:09:13.050
  • and our buildings
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:14.040
  • are big enough,
  • 00:09:14.040 --> 00:09:15.000
  • and pretty enough,
  • 00:09:15.000 --> 00:09:16.010
  • and prestigious enough,
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:17.000
  • that we can get the job done,
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.240
  • but we can't get the job done
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:20.090
  • without the supernatural power
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.170
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:29.050
  • You'll notice this.
  • 00:09:29.050 --> 00:09:30.150
  • The second sneeze
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:32.000
  • is found in Acts 4,
  • 00:09:32.000 --> 00:09:35.000
  • when they said,
  • 00:09:35.000 --> 00:09:35.190
  • "Don't you preach
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:36.110
  • in that name anymore."
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:38.140
  • And I think
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:39.050
  • it boils down to this,
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:40.060
  • that you have to decide
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:42.060
  • if you're going to be
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:42.260
  • totally accepted
  • 00:09:42.260 --> 00:09:44.010
  • in this day and time.
  • 00:09:44.010 --> 00:09:45.210
  • Because if you're a true
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:47.000
  • born again believer
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:48.280
  • who's doing everything you can
  • 00:09:48.280 --> 00:09:50.060
  • to obey that book
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.050
  • and live right,
  • 00:09:51.050 --> 00:09:52.050
  • you don't fit in
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:53.030
  • with this world.
  • 00:09:53.030 --> 00:09:54.190
  • And you will not be totally
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:56.200
  • accepted by people in the world.
  • 00:09:56.200 --> 00:09:59.140
  • They will talk about you.
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:01.110
  • They will make fun of you.
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:03.040
  • Then, we see another sneeze,
  • 00:10:08.280 --> 00:10:11.140
  • the sneeze of green.
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:14.220
  • The kingdom of thing-dom.
  • 00:10:15.050 --> 00:10:18.050
  • Money, material possessions.
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:22.270
  • Get so blessed
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:23.270
  • you can't even tithe anymore,
  • 00:10:23.270 --> 00:10:25.100
  • 'cause you're making
  • 00:10:25.100 --> 00:10:26.050
  • so much money,
  • 00:10:26.050 --> 00:10:26.230
  • and you're afraid
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:27.260
  • you'd give God too much.
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:29.230
  • The one who --
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:30.240
  • give God a portion
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:32.170
  • of your tithe,
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.200
  • lest He be displeased with you,
  • 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:35.120
  • and give you a tithe
  • 00:10:35.120 --> 00:10:36.140
  • in proportion of your giving.
  • 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:42.080
  • And vice-versa.
  • 00:10:43.230 --> 00:10:46.230
  • I had a preacher friend
  • 00:10:46.230 --> 00:10:47.230
  • who has a...
  • 00:10:47.230 --> 00:10:50.140
  • flare for the dramatic,
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:51.200
  • I guess you could say.
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:52.220
  • And he took --
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:56.280
  • He took crime tape and roped off
  • 00:10:57.140 --> 00:11:00.160
  • -- this was back in the days
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:01.140
  • when they used to have those
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:02.220
  • communion tables and they had
  • 00:11:02.220 --> 00:11:04.080
  • the offering plates on 'em?
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:05.100
  • Anybody know what
  • 00:11:05.100 --> 00:11:05.240
  • I'm talkin' aboout?
  • 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:07.150
  • And he took crime tape
  • 00:11:07.150 --> 00:11:10.000
  • and taped off
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:10.220
  • the whole front part
  • 00:11:10.220 --> 00:11:11.270
  • of his church one Sunday.
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:13.010
  • Got up and preached,
  • 00:11:13.010 --> 00:11:14.000
  • "Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:14.290
  • gaurd your purses.
  • 00:11:14.290 --> 00:11:16.150
  • There's a theif in the house
  • 00:11:16.150 --> 00:11:17.210
  • and if a man'll rob God,
  • 00:11:17.210 --> 00:11:18.260
  • he'll rob anybody."
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:20.000
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:24.200
  • The fourth sneeze is murmuring.
  • 00:11:25.140 --> 00:11:28.140
  • The Bible said the people
  • 00:11:28.140 --> 00:11:29.110
  • started murmuring
  • 00:11:29.110 --> 00:11:30.170
  • in the Book of Acts,
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:31.270
  • I think it's Acts 6.
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:33.290
  • 'Cause some of the Jewish widows
  • 00:11:33.290 --> 00:11:35.250
  • were getting treated
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:36.200
  • better than the Gentiles,
  • 00:11:36.200 --> 00:11:38.130
  • and they had
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:39.080
  • this thing going on,
  • 00:11:39.080 --> 00:11:40.060
  • and they were murmuring.
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:44.090
  • Just complaining.
  • 00:11:44.120 --> 00:11:47.120
  • Talking down.
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:50.120
  • You want to get the life of God
  • 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:51.280
  • back in you?
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:52.250
  • Stop murmuring.
  • 00:11:52.250 --> 00:11:55.250
  • Stop complaining.
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:58.200
  • Stop whining.
  • 00:11:58.200 --> 00:12:01.220
  • Would you like some cheese
  • 00:12:01.220 --> 00:12:02.160
  • with your whine?
  • 00:12:02.160 --> 00:12:03.250
  • Stop whining.
  • 00:12:04.040 --> 00:12:07.040
  • Whine-o's in the church.
  • 00:12:07.110 --> 00:12:10.110
  • Just whine all the time.
  • 00:12:10.110 --> 00:12:12.210
  • God don't want to hear it,
  • 00:12:12.210 --> 00:12:13.180
  • He left a long time ago.
  • 00:12:14.230 --> 00:12:17.230
  • Come on, church.
  • 00:12:17.230 --> 00:12:18.200
  • Let's quit whining.
  • 00:12:18.200 --> 00:12:19.180
  • Let's sneeze that out.
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:21.200
  • We've all had hard times.
  • 00:12:21.200 --> 00:12:23.050
  • We've all
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:24.010
  • gone through struggles.
  • 00:12:24.010 --> 00:12:25.010
  • It may be dark, it may be tough,
  • 00:12:25.010 --> 00:12:27.050
  • it may be hurtful,
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:28.080
  • but you know what?
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:29.020
  • You don't start talking
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:30.090
  • and murmuring and complaining
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:32.040
  • and finding fault,
  • 00:12:32.040 --> 00:12:33.120
  • you throw your hands up
  • 00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:34.150
  • and you praise the God
  • 00:12:34.150 --> 00:12:35.190
  • who can change things.
  • 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:38.120
  • Focus on the good.
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:44.010
  • Paul said,
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:51.250
  • "I think myself happy."
  • 00:12:52.110 --> 00:12:55.110
  • Isn't that a great verse?
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:56.070
  • "I think myself happy."
  • 00:12:56.210 --> 00:12:59.210
  • You keep on murmuring,
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:00.230
  • you're going to think yourself
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:01.190
  • depressed, fearful, discouraged.
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:06.070
  • Tore up from the floor up.
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:09.210
  • Quit murmuring,
  • 00:13:09.210 --> 00:13:11.060
  • and start being thankful
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:13.100
  • for what you do have.
  • 00:13:15.170 --> 00:13:18.170
  • The fifth one is fear.
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:22.290
  • The Bible said
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:23.220
  • that they were persecuted,
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:27.140
  • and they were fearful.
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:31.160
  • We have to sneeze out
  • 00:13:31.160 --> 00:13:32.220
  • the fear of failure,
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.060
  • the fear of rejection,
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:35.250
  • the fear of people.
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:37.190
  • Well, when God shuts one door,
  • 00:13:37.190 --> 00:13:39.260
  • He opens another,
  • 00:13:39.260 --> 00:13:40.240
  • but it's Hell in the hallway.
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:44.190
  • And when you have God
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:45.190
  • shut the door and you don't
  • 00:13:45.190 --> 00:13:47.230
  • have a job anymore,
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.070
  • and you're waitin' on God
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:50.060
  • to open the door,
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:51.040
  • you're in the hallway.
  • 00:13:51.040 --> 00:13:53.240
  • And in the hallway,
  • 00:13:53.240 --> 00:13:54.260
  • when you're in-between
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:56.200
  • the breakthrough,
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:57.140
  • and in-between the miracle,
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:13:59.040
  • fear will come,
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:00.130
  • but God has not given you
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:02.060
  • the spirit of fear,
  • 00:14:02.060 --> 00:14:03.200
  • but of power and of love
  • 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:05.030
  • and of a sound mind.
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:06.270
  • Fear will paralyze you.
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:09.030
  • Fear will torment you.
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:11.150
  • Fear will tell you
  • 00:14:11.150 --> 00:14:12.280
  • that you can't do it.
  • 00:14:13.210 --> 00:14:16.210
  • I hate fear.
  • 00:14:16.210 --> 00:14:18.240
  • I've had to fight it
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:19.290
  • my whole life.
  • 00:14:19.290 --> 00:14:21.240
  • I do every time I walk
  • 00:14:21.240 --> 00:14:23.120
  • to the pulpit.
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:26.090
  • But I have found
  • 00:14:26.090 --> 00:14:28.230
  • that fear is never,
  • 00:14:29.130 --> 00:14:32.130
  • ever going to encourage me
  • 00:14:32.130 --> 00:14:35.040
  • if I give a voice to it
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:36.180
  • and listen to it.
  • 00:14:36.180 --> 00:14:38.120
  • You have to shake it off,
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:41.000
  • and you have to go in confidence
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:42.290
  • and in faith,
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.230
  • knowing the Lord is with you.
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:48.250
  • Let me give you another one,
  • 00:14:48.250 --> 00:14:49.270
  • in Acts 10.
  • 00:14:51.150 --> 00:14:54.150
  • It's the sixth sneeze.
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:14:57.150
  • You know what it is?
  • 00:14:57.150 --> 00:14:58.190
  • Prejudice.
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:03.160
  • Cornelius is praying,
  • 00:15:03.170 --> 00:15:06.170
  • and he's a Gentile,
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:08.220
  • and Peter says,
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:09.110
  • "I can't associate
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:11.190
  • with certain people
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:12.190
  • who are not of my nationality."
  • 00:15:14.230 --> 00:15:17.230
  • Prejudice had gotten in
  • 00:15:17.230 --> 00:15:19.130
  • the church,
  • 00:15:19.130 --> 00:15:20.250
  • but God gave Peter a dream.
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:23.210
  • And he saw all of the things
  • 00:15:23.210 --> 00:15:25.090
  • that were supposed
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:26.010
  • to be unclean,
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:27.000
  • and God said,
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:27.200
  • "Kill 'em and eat."
  • 00:15:27.250 --> 00:15:30.250
  • And he had to have
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:31.260
  • that dream several times,
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:33.000
  • and by the time
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:34.090
  • that God got through with him,
  • 00:15:34.090 --> 00:15:35.230
  • he understood,
  • 00:15:35.230 --> 00:15:36.290
  • because somebody
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:37.240
  • was knocking on his door,
  • 00:15:37.240 --> 00:15:38.200
  • saying, "There's somebody
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:40.030
  • that has seen an angel,
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:41.210
  • and they sent me to tell you
  • 00:15:41.210 --> 00:15:42.280
  • to come to my house."
  • 00:15:42.280 --> 00:15:44.210
  • He's perceived this is
  • 00:15:44.210 --> 00:15:45.290
  • of the Lord,
  • 00:15:45.290 --> 00:15:47.100
  • what God calls clean,
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:48.090
  • let no man call unclean.
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:51.180
  • We got to sneeze prejudice
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:52.250
  • out of the church.
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:55.010
  • We got to sneeze this --
  • 00:15:55.010 --> 00:15:56.220
  • you are not superior to anyone
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:58.280
  • because of the color
  • 00:15:58.280 --> 00:15:59.250
  • of your skin.
  • 00:15:59.250 --> 00:16:01.210
  • You are not inferior
  • 00:16:01.210 --> 00:16:03.030
  • to anyone because of
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:04.270
  • the color of your skin.
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:08.040
  • You've heard me.
  • 00:16:08.040 --> 00:16:09.000
  • I've told you before.
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:12.280
  • I went and preached for
  • 00:16:12.280 --> 00:16:14.120
  • a large church in Atlanta
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:16.070
  • one time, and I'll never forget
  • 00:16:16.070 --> 00:16:17.230
  • walking in.
  • 00:16:17.230 --> 00:16:19.030
  • And just me being white,
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:20.120
  • all my life, being raised in --
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:23.070
  • I can't help it.
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:24.190
  • And I walk into this church,
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:27.030
  • and you know,
  • 00:16:27.030 --> 00:16:28.000
  • all I've ever seen
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:28.200
  • is white Jesus's.
  • 00:16:28.200 --> 00:16:29.180
  • You know,
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:30.100
  • on the little picture frames
  • 00:16:30.100 --> 00:16:31.080
  • and sweet, blond-headed,
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:32.280
  • blue-eyed Jesus,
  • 00:16:32.280 --> 00:16:33.280
  • in sandals and --
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:35.120
  • hippy Jesus, you know the one.
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:36.170
  • You know the one
  • 00:16:36.170 --> 00:16:37.150
  • I'm talking about.
  • 00:16:37.150 --> 00:16:38.190
  • That's all I've ever seen.
  • 00:16:38.190 --> 00:16:40.240
  • And I walked into
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:41.280
  • this black bishop's office,
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:43.100
  • and he had a black Jesus.
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:46.110
  • Big ol' -- the biggest picture
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:48.030
  • of Jesus I've ever seen,
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.190
  • almost as big as that screen.
  • 00:16:49.190 --> 00:16:51.170
  • And it was a black Jesus,
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:53.080
  • with jerry curls.
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:56.000
  • And it threw me for a loop.
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:57.220
  • I tried to -- you know,
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:58.200
  • I tried not to --
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:00.020
  • but freaked me out a little bit.
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:08.060
  • Then, I went on a mission trip
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:09.130
  • one time to Mexico and preached,
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:11.040
  • and this Hispanic pastor
  • 00:17:11.040 --> 00:17:13.130
  • had a Jesus with a sombrero on
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:15.210
  • in his office.
  • 00:17:15.210 --> 00:17:16.150
  • I'm like, well,
  • 00:17:16.150 --> 00:17:17.270
  • would the real Jesus
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:19.200
  • please stand up?
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:20.200
  • He's all of 'em.
  • 00:17:20.200 --> 00:17:22.080
  • He's all of 'em.
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:24.190
  • He's all of 'em.
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:25.260
  • He died for all of us.
  • 00:17:25.260 --> 00:17:28.000
  • And prejudice has no place
  • 00:17:28.000 --> 00:17:30.100
  • in the Body of Christ,
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:31.270
  • in the church, in the Kingdom,
  • 00:17:31.270 --> 00:17:33.290
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:17:44.150 --> 00:17:46.180
  • There's one more sneeze.
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:54.010
  • You know, it's called doubt.
  • 00:17:55.270 --> 00:17:58.270
  • And the Bible said
  • 00:17:58.270 --> 00:17:59.280
  • that when Peter left the house,
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:04.140
  • he left doubting
  • 00:18:05.150 --> 00:18:08.150
  • nothing in the vision.
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:12.140
  • When he sneezed that doubt out,
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:16.090
  • when we sneeze doubt out,
  • 00:18:16.100 --> 00:18:19.100
  • Paul said in Corinthians,
  • 00:18:19.100 --> 00:18:21.010
  • "I will come to vision.
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:23.100
  • I don't hope so,
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.110
  • I don't wonder."
  • 00:18:24.110 --> 00:18:26.100
  • He said, "I will,
  • 00:18:26.100 --> 00:18:27.280
  • I shall come to vision."
  • 00:18:27.280 --> 00:18:30.250
  • There comes a place,
  • 00:18:30.250 --> 00:18:32.050
  • if you walk with God,
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:33.100
  • and He's giving you a vision,
  • 00:18:33.100 --> 00:18:34.280
  • it goes through death.
  • 00:18:34.280 --> 00:18:37.240
  • You don't have a vision
  • 00:18:37.240 --> 00:18:38.190
  • if your vision hasn't died.
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:41.130
  • It goes through death,
  • 00:18:41.130 --> 00:18:43.040
  • it goes through burial,
  • 00:18:43.040 --> 00:18:45.280
  • and that's where most people
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:46.290
  • give up, walk away, and say,
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:48.100
  • "I missed God."
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:49.280
  • But if you've really
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:50.190
  • got a vision,
  • 00:18:50.190 --> 00:18:51.190
  • something in you holds on.
  • 00:18:51.190 --> 00:18:53.290
  • Because it doesn't just
  • 00:18:53.290 --> 00:18:54.280
  • go through death and burial,
  • 00:18:54.280 --> 00:18:56.140
  • but it will come
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:57.180
  • to resurrection.
  • 00:18:57.180 --> 00:18:59.250
  • And when it comes up
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:00.280
  • and you finally are standing
  • 00:19:00.280 --> 00:19:02.230
  • in that place,
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:04.010
  • you're not enthralled,
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:05.010
  • and you're not impressed
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:05.240
  • with that place,
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:07.210
  • like you would've been
  • 00:19:07.210 --> 00:19:08.250
  • had God given it to you
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:10.020
  • on a platter.
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:11.260
  • It's something about the fact
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:13.160
  • that when you do stand in
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:14.270
  • your place of destiny,
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:16.210
  • it's not the place
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:17.230
  • that you're amazed by,
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:19.130
  • it's the God who put you there
  • 00:19:19.130 --> 00:19:21.080
  • that you're amazed by.
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:24.070
  • He doesn't want you caught up
  • 00:19:24.070 --> 00:19:25.230
  • in your stuff,
  • 00:19:25.230 --> 00:19:27.020
  • He wants you caught up in Him
  • 00:19:27.020 --> 00:19:29.260
  • for His glory.
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:31.260
  • And I'm praying
  • 00:19:31.260 --> 00:19:32.240
  • for the seventh sneeze,
  • 00:19:33.120 --> 00:19:36.120
  • that you would leave this room
  • 00:19:36.120 --> 00:19:37.260
  • doubting nothing.
  • 00:19:37.260 --> 00:19:40.070
  • I'm walking by faith,
  • 00:19:40.070 --> 00:19:41.240
  • not by sight.
  • 00:19:41.240 --> 00:19:42.260
  • I'm not doubting,
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:43.290
  • God has spoken to me,
  • 00:19:43.290 --> 00:19:46.080
  • and He will bring it to pass.
  • 00:19:46.080 --> 00:19:48.260
  • My children will be saved.
  • 00:19:48.260 --> 00:19:51.120
  • My body will be healed.
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:53.180
  • My life will be
  • 00:19:53.180 --> 00:19:55.110
  • blessed and purposeful.
  • 00:19:55.110 --> 00:19:57.140
  • I will be free,
  • 00:19:57.140 --> 00:19:58.270
  • I will know God's plan
  • 00:19:58.270 --> 00:20:01.010
  • for my life.
  • 00:20:01.010 --> 00:20:02.080
  • I walk by faith,
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:04.110
  • doubting nothing.
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:06.020
  • Everybody say that,
  • 00:20:06.020 --> 00:20:06.270
  • "Doubting nothing."
  • 00:20:11.110 --> 00:20:14.110
  • The Holy Spirit right now
  • 00:20:14.110 --> 00:20:15.200
  • is laying His hands
  • 00:20:15.200 --> 00:20:16.230
  • on your hands,
  • 00:20:16.230 --> 00:20:17.180
  • to resurrect the work.
  • 00:20:17.180 --> 00:20:20.110
  • You can't do it on your own,
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:21.140
  • it's not by might,
  • 00:20:21.140 --> 00:20:22.130
  • nor by power.
  • 00:20:22.130 --> 00:20:23.220
  • It's by My Spirit,
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:24.150
  • so I lay My hand on you.
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:28.120
  • And He's laying His mouth
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:29.280
  • on your mouth,
  • 00:20:29.280 --> 00:20:32.250
  • that original prophecy.
  • 00:20:32.250 --> 00:20:34.080
  • There's a prophecy
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:35.050
  • over your life,
  • 00:20:35.050 --> 00:20:36.140
  • and you can't die
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:37.110
  • until it's fulfilled.
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:43.160
  • It's time to go back to it.
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:45.040

  • source of power.
  • 00:20:47.210 --> 00:20:48.190
  • The Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:48.190 --> 00:20:51.010
  • Let Him put His mouth
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.020
  • on your mouth,

  • His eyes on your eyes.
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:58.070
  • So that you'll have
  • 00:20:58.070 --> 00:20:59.010
  • the vision again,

  • for what God's called you to do.

  • You'll understand now.
  • 00:21:08.040 --> 00:21:09.180
  • I see it.
  • 00:21:09.180 --> 00:21:11.150
  • I see it.
  • 00:21:11.160 --> 00:21:14.160
  • Raise your hands toward Heaven.
  • 00:21:14.160 --> 00:21:17.060
  • Say, "Lord, here's my hands,
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:18.200
  • here's my mouth,
  • 00:21:18.200 --> 00:21:20.040

  • stretch me.
  • 00:21:24.060 --> 00:21:25.010
  • I've been comfortable.
  • 00:21:25.010 --> 00:21:26.110
  • I've been a little comfortable
  • 00:21:26.110 --> 00:21:27.110
  • in my Christianity,
  • 00:21:27.110 --> 00:21:28.180
  • so stretch me again.
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:30.170
  • Take me where I've never been.
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:32.130
  • Stretch me, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:32.130 --> 00:21:34.110
  • Take me into Your power,

  • Touch my mouth
  • 00:21:43.170 --> 00:21:45.040

  • -- when I first got born again,
  • 00:22:03.230 --> 00:22:05.180
  • how much I wanted to please You.
  • 00:22:05.180 --> 00:22:07.240
  • How careful I was,
  • 00:22:07.240 --> 00:22:09.010
  • and what I looked at,
  • 00:22:09.010 --> 00:22:10.100
  • and what I talked,
  • 00:22:10.100 --> 00:22:11.230
  • and what I said.
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:12.200
  • I want to go back
  • 00:22:12.200 --> 00:22:13.230
  • like that child,

  • when I first got born again.
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:16.240
  • How I love Your Word
  • 00:22:16.240 --> 00:22:18.130
  • and loved to worship."
  • 00:22:18.130 --> 00:22:20.200
  • I don't want to be tired
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:22.140
  • and old, I want to be fresh
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:24.220
  • and young, spiritually.
  • 00:22:25.020 --> 00:22:28.020
  • So come, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:28.020 --> 00:22:30.150
  • Let's stand to our feet,
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:31.140
  • all over this room.
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:33.250
  • Throw those hands up,
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:34.280
  • and for the next 30 seconds,
  • 00:22:34.280 --> 00:22:36.110
  • turn the volume up
  • 00:22:36.110 --> 00:22:37.110
  • on your voice.
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:38.090
  • Turn it up.
  • 00:22:38.090 --> 00:22:38.280
  • You're at a one
  • 00:22:38.280 --> 00:22:39.200
  • turn it up to a seven.
  • 00:22:39.200 --> 00:22:41.140
  • Just turn the volume up
  • 00:22:41.140 --> 00:22:42.220
  • on your voice box.
  • 00:22:42.220 --> 00:22:44.150
  • And open your mouth
  • 00:22:44.150 --> 00:22:45.100
  • and begin to go after God.
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:47.000
  • The Holy Spirit
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:48.110
  • is looking, like antennas,
  • 00:22:48.110 --> 00:22:50.070
  • for hands that are raised,
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:51.180
  • saying, "Come, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:53.110
  • Come into my house.
  • 00:22:53.110 --> 00:22:54.230
  • Come into my business.
  • 00:22:54.230 --> 00:22:56.130
  • Put Your hand on my hand.
  • 00:22:56.130 --> 00:22:58.120
  • Touch me, in my workplace.
  • 00:22:58.120 --> 00:23:00.260
  • Oh, God, I need to see
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:03.170
  • some things happen.
  • 00:23:03.170 --> 00:23:04.220
  • And I know I need the power
  • 00:23:04.220 --> 00:23:06.000
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:23:06.000 --> 00:23:07.060
  • I'm going back
  • 00:23:07.060 --> 00:23:07.210
  • to the original power.
  • 00:23:07.210 --> 00:23:09.170
  • When I started that business,
  • 00:23:09.170 --> 00:23:11.000
  • I didn't have anything.
  • 00:23:11.000 --> 00:23:12.100
  • Put Your hand back on me.
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:14.000
  • Put Your mouth on my mouth.
  • 00:23:14.000 --> 00:23:15.170
  • Put Your eyes on my eyes.
  • 00:23:15.170 --> 00:23:17.100
  • Anoint me, again.
  • 00:23:17.100 --> 00:23:18.190
  • Use me, again.
  • 00:23:18.190 --> 00:23:19.250
  • Raise me, again.
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:21.050
  • I sneeze out everything
  • 00:23:21.050 --> 00:23:22.290
  • that's hindered.
  • 00:23:22.290 --> 00:23:24.060
  • I sneeze it out.
  • 00:23:24.060 --> 00:23:25.110
  • Come on.
  • 00:23:25.110 --> 00:23:26.120
  • Sneeze out that doubt.
  • 00:23:26.120 --> 00:23:27.250
  • Sneeze out that fear.
  • 00:23:27.250 --> 00:23:29.200
  • Sneeze out that
  • 00:23:29.200 --> 00:23:31.060
  • murmuring and complaining,
  • 00:23:31.060 --> 00:23:32.240
  • and thought-finding.
  • 00:23:32.240 --> 00:23:34.060
  • Get it out of your system.
  • 00:23:34.060 --> 00:23:35.270
  • So that you can breathe again.
  • 00:23:35.270 --> 00:23:37.290
  • The Holy Spirit says
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:39.010
  • it's time to breathe again.
  • 00:23:39.010 --> 00:23:41.130
  • It's time to breathe again.
  • 00:23:41.130 --> 00:23:44.080
  • It's time to live again.
  • 00:23:44.080 --> 00:23:46.150
  • It's time to dream again.
  • 00:23:46.150 --> 00:23:49.070
  • - In closing moments,
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:56.130
  • I wanna talk to you about
  • 00:23:56.130 --> 00:23:57.120
  • something that moved me and,
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:24:00.220
  • I don't think
  • 00:24:00.220 --> 00:24:01.060
  • I'll ever be the same.
  • 00:24:01.060 --> 00:24:02.130
  • God has opened some
  • 00:24:02.130 --> 00:24:03.270
  • unprecedented opportunities
  • 00:24:03.270 --> 00:24:06.070
  • for this ministry
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:07.020
  • And, I can tell you,
  • 00:24:09.110 --> 00:24:10.190
  • the work that we're doing
  • 00:24:10.190 --> 00:24:11.260
  • in Israel is critical.
  • 00:24:11.260 --> 00:24:14.190
  • Just in the last few weeks,
  • 00:24:14.190 --> 00:24:17.020
  • rockets, if you've been
  • 00:24:17.020 --> 00:24:17.280
  • watching the news,
  • 00:24:17.280 --> 00:24:18.280
  • have been fired,
  • 00:24:18.280 --> 00:24:19.280
  • and injuries and chaos
  • 00:24:19.280 --> 00:24:21.200
  • has plagued a tiny region
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:23.280
  • bordering Gaza, in Egypt.
  • 00:24:23.280 --> 00:24:26.050
  • A tiny region of Israel
  • 00:24:26.050 --> 00:24:28.050
  • is the Eshkol Region,
  • 00:24:28.050 --> 00:24:30.120
  • and there, we're building
  • 00:24:30.120 --> 00:24:32.020
  • the Eshkol Region Trauma Center.
  • 00:24:32.020 --> 00:24:34.210
  • We broke ground on it,
  • 00:24:34.210 --> 00:24:36.020
  • it is under construction.
  • 00:24:36.020 --> 00:24:38.010
  • the Biblical prophecy
  • 00:24:39.030 --> 00:24:41.010
  • as Isaiah spoke
  • 00:24:41.010 --> 00:24:42.070
  • in the 40th chapter,
  • 00:24:42.070 --> 00:24:43.140
  • when He said, "Comfort ye,
  • 00:24:43.140 --> 00:24:45.110
  • comfort ye, My people",
  • 00:24:45.110 --> 00:24:47.150
  • and that's exactly
  • 00:24:47.150 --> 00:24:48.090
  • what we're doing.
  • 00:24:48.090 --> 00:24:49.260
  • The Center that we're building
  • 00:24:49.260 --> 00:24:51.160
  • will have an indoor playground
  • 00:24:51.160 --> 00:24:53.040
  • for over 2.500 children,
  • 00:24:54.070 --> 00:24:57.070
  • where they can play
  • 00:24:57.070 --> 00:24:58.100
  • and dream and grow in safety,
  • 00:24:58.100 --> 00:25:01.110
  • along with elderly
  • 00:25:01.110 --> 00:25:02.120
  • Holocaust survivors,
  • 00:25:02.120 --> 00:25:03.250
  • in that very area.
  • 00:25:03.250 --> 00:25:06.090
  • I'm not gonna tell you
  • 00:25:06.090 --> 00:25:07.040
  • what to give.
  • 00:25:07.040 --> 00:25:08.280
  • I'm only gonna ask you
  • 00:25:08.280 --> 00:25:10.100
  • to seek the Lord,
  • 00:25:10.100 --> 00:25:11.230
  • and see what He would
  • 00:25:11.230 --> 00:25:12.240
  • have you do.
  • 00:25:12.240 --> 00:25:14.270
  • And, as we do this together,
  • 00:25:14.270 --> 00:25:16.180
  • I believe God will pour out
  • 00:25:16.180 --> 00:25:18.060
  • blessings on you,
  • 00:25:18.060 --> 00:25:19.130
  • you've never seen before.
  • 00:25:19.130 --> 00:25:21.070
  • Please, do your very best;
  • 00:25:21.070 --> 00:25:23.060
  • we need your help
  • 00:25:23.060 --> 00:25:24.060
  • on this project.
  • 00:25:24.060 --> 00:25:25.090
  • Here's my announcer
  • 00:25:25.090 --> 00:25:26.230
  • - ANNOUNCER: Each year,
  • 00:25:29.040 --> 00:25:29.200
  • thousands of rockets are fired
  • 00:25:29.200 --> 00:25:31.000
  • into cities, neighborhoods,
  • 00:25:31.000 --> 00:25:32.190
  • and schools across Israel.
  • 00:25:32.190 --> 00:25:34.220
  • In Eshkol, an area
  • 00:25:34.220 --> 00:25:35.210
  • immediately next
  • 00:25:35.210 --> 00:25:36.160
  • to the Gaza Strip,
  • 00:25:36.160 --> 00:25:37.240
  • when the sirens sound,
  • 00:25:37.240 --> 00:25:39.020
  • families, children,
  • 00:25:39.020 --> 00:25:40.020
  • and elderly alike,
  • 00:25:40.020 --> 00:25:41.130
  • have just 15 seconds
  • 00:25:41.130 --> 00:25:43.060
  • to take cover
  • 00:25:43.060 --> 00:25:43.200
  • in bomb shelters.
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:45.050
  • The trauma of terror
  • 00:25:45.050 --> 00:25:46.070
  • ripples through all generations;
