  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: FORGIVENESS
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:15.110
  • IS NOT OPTIONAL
  • 00:00:15.110 --> 00:00:16.100
  • IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:18.070
  • MATTHEW 6:14 AND 15 SAYS,
  • 00:00:18.070 --> 00:00:20.120
  • "FOR IF YOU GIVE MEN
  • 00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:21.120
  • THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS,
  • 00:00:21.120 --> 00:00:23.110
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO
  • 00:00:23.110 --> 00:00:25.010
  • FORGIVE YOU."
  • 00:00:25.010 --> 00:00:26.100
  • NOTICE THIS PHRASE,
  • 00:00:26.100 --> 00:00:27.240
  • "BUT IF YOU FORGIVE NOT MEN
  • 00:00:27.240 --> 00:00:29.240
  • THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS,
  • 00:00:29.240 --> 00:00:31.200
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER
  • 00:00:31.200 --> 00:00:33.170
  • WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU,
  • 00:00:33.170 --> 00:00:35.090
  • NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER
  • 00:00:35.090 --> 00:00:36.190
  • FORGIVE YOU YOUR TRESPASSES."
  • 00:00:36.190 --> 00:00:38.230
  • LISTEN TO THE THUNDERING TRUTH
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:40.040
  • OF THIS VERSE.
  • 00:00:40.040 --> 00:00:42.010
  • IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE OTHER
  • 00:00:42.010 --> 00:00:43.060
  • PEOPLE,
  • 00:00:43.060 --> 00:00:44.150
  • GOD'S NOT JUST GOING TO LOOK
  • 00:00:44.150 --> 00:00:45.210
  • OVER IT;
  • 00:00:45.210 --> 00:00:46.220
  • HE IS NOT GOING TO FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:00:46.220 --> 00:00:48.290
  • AND WITHOUT GOD'S FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:00:48.290 --> 00:00:50.280
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO ENTER
  • 00:00:50.280 --> 00:00:52.030
  • THE GATES OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:52.030 --> 00:00:53.270
  • FORGIVENESS IS A MAJOR DECISION
  • 00:00:53.270 --> 00:00:56.150
  • THAT WILL INDEED DETERMINE
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:58.200
  • YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY.
  • 00:00:58.200 --> 00:01:00.120
  • COLOSSIANS 3:13 READS,
  • 00:01:00.120 --> 00:01:02.080
  • "FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER --"
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:03.140
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:04.170
  • "FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER."
  • 00:01:04.170 --> 00:01:06.000
  • "-- EVEN AS CHRIST FORGAVE YOU,
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:07.250
  • SO ALSO ARE YOU TO DO."
  • 00:01:07.250 --> 00:01:10.160
  • THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR.
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:12.040
  • IF YOU WILL NOT FORGIVE OTHERS,
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:14.000
  • GOD WON'T FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:15.290
  • THERE ARE 62 WORDS
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:17.240
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:01:17.240 --> 00:01:19.090
  • FOR FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:01:19.090 --> 00:01:20.170
  • AND 22 TIMES OUT OF THOSE 62,
  • 00:01:21.020 --> 00:01:24.020
  • IT RELATES TO FORGIVING
  • 00:01:24.020 --> 00:01:26.000
  • OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:27.090
  • SECONDLY,
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:28.090
  • FORGIVENESS IS THE SECRET
  • 00:01:28.090 --> 00:01:30.160
  • OF ABSOLUTE FREEDOM.
  • 00:01:30.160 --> 00:01:33.020
  • IT IS THE SECRET
  • 00:01:33.020 --> 00:01:34.210
  • OF ABSOLUTE FREEDOM.
  • 00:01:34.210 --> 00:01:36.200
  • FORGIVENESS BRINGS FREEDOM
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:38.130
  • FROM THOSE THAT HAVE HURT YOU.
  • 00:01:38.130 --> 00:01:40.240
  • THE SWEETEST REVENGE YOU WILL
  • 00:01:40.240 --> 00:01:42.170
  • EVER EXPERIENCE IS TO TOTALLY
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:45.100
  • FORGIVE AND FORGET
  • 00:01:45.100 --> 00:01:47.150
  • THE INCIDENT,
  • 00:01:47.150 --> 00:01:48.280
  • AND THEN YOU WILL BE FREE.
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:50.270
  • OTHERWISE,
  • 00:01:50.270 --> 00:01:51.190
  • YOU ARE IN A PRISON THAT YOU
  • 00:01:51.190 --> 00:01:53.050
  • ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE TO BUILD
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:54.240
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:55.270
  • BECAUSE THE FOOLISH OPINIONS
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:57.150
  • OF OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:01:57.150 --> 00:01:58.080
  • SHOULD NOT SHAPE YOUR DESTINY,
  • 00:01:58.080 --> 00:02:00.110
  • AND YOUR PAST SHOULD NOT
  • 00:02:00.110 --> 00:02:01.190
  • CONTROL YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:02:01.190 --> 00:02:03.140
  • FORGIVENESS BREAKS
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:04.240
  • THE HANDCUFFS.
  • 00:02:04.240 --> 00:02:05.200
  • IT OPENS THE DOOR.
  • 00:02:05.200 --> 00:02:07.130
  • FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:09.160
  • THAT REMOVES REVENGE,
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:11.130
  • AND BITTERNESS,
  • 00:02:11.130 --> 00:02:12.140
  • AND HATRED
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:13.130
  • FROM THE SOUL.
  • 00:02:13.130 --> 00:02:14.240
  • JESUS USED HIS LAST BREATH
  • 00:02:14.240 --> 00:02:16.230
  • ON THE CROSS TO FORGIVE THE
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:18.250
  • ROMANS, WHO WERE EXECUTING HIM.
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:21.160
  • HE LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:02:21.160 --> 00:02:22.240
  • "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM;
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:24.020
  • FOR THEY DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:25.150
  • WHAT THEY'RE DOING."
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:28.000
  • THAT WAS HIS LAST EXAMPLE
  • 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:30.210
  • TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:02:30.210 --> 00:02:32.280
  • AND I CAN SEE THAT SOME OF YOU
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:34.270
  • SAY, "WELL PREACHER,
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:36.290
  • THAT KIND OF FORGIVENESS IS
  • 00:02:36.290 --> 00:02:38.120
  • UNREALISTIC IN A DOG-EAT-DOG
  • 00:02:38.120 --> 00:02:40.170
  • WORLD OF THE 21ST CENTURY."
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:43.010
  • WHY DON'T YOU GET REAL ABOUT
  • 00:02:43.010 --> 00:02:44.210
  • SOMETHING THAT'S HAPPENED
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:45.260
  • LATELY IN THE MATTER
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.140
  • OF FORGIVENESS?
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:49.050
  • LET ME TELL YOU THIS TRUE STORY
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:50.180
  • FROM THE DARK DAYS
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:51.220
  • OF THE KOREAN WAR.
  • 00:02:51.220 --> 00:02:53.190
  • A SOUTH KOREAN CHRISTIAN WAS
  • 00:02:53.190 --> 00:02:55.040
  • ARRESTED BY THE COMMUNISTS,
  • 00:02:55.040 --> 00:02:56.280
  • AND HE WAS ORDERED TO BE SHOT.
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:58.280
  • WHEN THE COMMUNIST COMMANDER
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:00.080
  • LEARNED THAT THE FOREIGNER
  • 00:03:00.080 --> 00:03:01.190
  • IN CHARGE OF THE --
  • 00:03:01.190 --> 00:03:03.180
  • WAS IN CHARGE OF THE LOCAL
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:04.210
  • ORPHANAGE --
  • 00:03:04.210 --> 00:03:06.000
  • HE WAS CARING FOR
  • 00:03:06.000 --> 00:03:06.290
  • SMALL CHILDREN.
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:08.170
  • -- AND SO HE DECIDED TO SPARE
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:11.170
  • THE LEADER OF THE ORPHANAGE.
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:13.080
  • BUT HE DECIDED TO SHOOT
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:14.230
  • HIS 19-YEAR-OLD BOY.
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:18.130
  • THE COMMUNIST LEADER TOOK
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:19.280
  • THE BELIEVER'S SON,
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.270
  • 19 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:23.080
  • AND SHOT HIM DEAD IN FRONT
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:25.040
  • OF HIS FATHER AND MOTHER.
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:27.060
  • THE FORTUNES OF THE WAR
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:28.090
  • CHANGED.
  • 00:03:28.090 --> 00:03:29.160
  • AND THE SAME YOUNG
  • 00:03:29.160 --> 00:03:30.140
  • COMMUNIST LEADER WAS CAPTURED
  • 00:03:30.140 --> 00:03:32.080
  • BY U.N. FORCES.
  • 00:03:32.080 --> 00:03:33.180
  • HE WAS TRIED AND CONDEMNED.
  • 00:03:33.180 --> 00:03:36.160
  • BEFORE THE EXECUTIONER --
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:38.090
  • BEFORE THE EXECUTION
  • 00:03:38.090 --> 00:03:39.130
  • WAS CARRIED OUT,
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:40.230
  • THE CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:41.110
  • WHOSE SON HAD BEEN KILLED,
  • 00:03:41.110 --> 00:03:43.080
  • CAME AND PLED FOR THE LIFE
  • 00:03:43.080 --> 00:03:45.120
  • OF THIS COMMUNIST LEADER.
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:47.080
  • THE CHRISTIAN SAID,
  • 00:03:47.080 --> 00:03:48.090
  • "THIS MAN IS YOUNG.
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:50.160
  • IF YOU WILL GIVE HIM TO ME,
  • 00:03:50.160 --> 00:03:52.150
  • I WILL TRAIN HIM IN THE WAYS
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:54.170
  • OF THE LORD."
  • 00:03:54.170 --> 00:03:55.220
  • THE U.N. FORCES GRANTED
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:57.140
  • THIS STRANGE REQUEST.
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:59.070
  • AND THE FATHER TOOK
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:00.130
  • THE MURDERER OF HIS SON
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:02.280
  • INTO HIS HOME.
  • 00:04:02.280 --> 00:04:04.150
  • HE FORGAVE HIM.
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:05.240
  • HE LOVED HIM.
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:06.220
  • HE GAVE HIS HEART --
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:08.160
  • THIS MAN GAVE HIS HEART
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:09.230
  • TO CHRIST AND SERVED THE LORD
  • 00:04:09.230 --> 00:04:12.040
  • UNTIL THE DAY HE DIED,
  • 00:04:12.040 --> 00:04:14.060
  • AS A MISSIONARY.
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.200
  • THAT'S THE POWER
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:17.090
  • OF FORGIVENESS!
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:19.010
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:22.160 --> 00:04:25.160
  • OR ARE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:04:25.160 --> 00:04:26.260
  • OF THAT NICKEL?
  • 00:04:26.260 --> 00:04:28.210
  • YOU GET HIGH ON THE HATRED
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:31.160
  • YOU HAVE FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:04:32.010 --> 00:04:35.010
  • DO YOU RELISH PLANNING
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:37.020
  • THE REVENGE THAT YOU WANT
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:39.000
  • TO TAKE?
  • 00:04:39.000 --> 00:04:40.080
  • IF YOU WILL NOT FORGIVE
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:41.150
  • ANOTHER,
  • 00:04:41.150 --> 00:04:41.290
  • THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:43.190
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:44.180
  • NOT EVER!
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:46.240
  • WE ARE LIKE BEASTS
  • 00:04:46.240 --> 00:04:48.030
  • WHEN WE KILL EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:48.030 --> 00:04:49.220
  • WE'RE LIKE MEN
  • 00:04:49.220 --> 00:04:51.070
  • WHEN WE JUDGE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:53.120
  • WE ARE LIKE GOD
  • 00:04:53.120 --> 00:04:55.020
  • WHEN WE FORGIVE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:56.290
  • FORGIVENESS IS A FULL PARDON.
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:04:59.060
  • IT'S A FRESH START.
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:00.290
  • IT'S ANOTHER CHANCE.
  • 00:05:00.290 --> 00:05:02.200
  • IT'S A NEW BEGINNING.
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:04.070
  • IT'S THE CANCELING OF A DEBT.
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:06.210
  • IT'S NOT BURYING THE HATCHET
  • 00:05:06.210 --> 00:05:08.140
  • WITH THE HANDLE UP SO YOU CAN
  • 00:05:08.140 --> 00:05:10.060
  • GET IT JUST IN CASE.
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:12.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:13.180
  • FORGIVENESS IS, FIRST,
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:15.020
  • AN ACT OF YOUR WILL.
  • 00:05:15.020 --> 00:05:17.190
  • IF YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:20.090
  • FORGIVING SOMEBODY,
  • 00:05:20.090 --> 00:05:22.080
  • YOU'LL BE WAITING TILL YOUR
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:23.140
  • HAIR TURNS WHITER THAN MINE.
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:25.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:25.280 --> 00:05:26.160
  • IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:26.160 --> 00:05:28.070
  • IN AN ACT OF COURAGEOUS FAITH,
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:32.220
  • FORGIVE THAT PERSON!
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:34.130
  • AND THEN WATCH GOD GO TO WORK
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:36.100
  • IN YOUR DEFENSE.
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:38.030
  • WATCH HOW EVERYTHING THEY PUT
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:39.190
  • THEIR HANDS TO CRUMBLES,
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:41.280
  • AND EVERYTHING YOU PUT
  • 00:05:41.280 --> 00:05:42.270
  • YOUR HAND TO, GOD BLESSES.
  • 00:05:42.270 --> 00:05:45.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:52.090
  • FORGIVENESS WILL RELEASE
  • 00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:53.210
  • A HEALING FORCE THAT WILL
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:55.190
  • CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER.
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:57.250
  • JOY WILL REPLACE GRIEF.
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:06:00.150
  • PEACE WILL REPLACE ANGER.
  • 00:06:00.150 --> 00:06:03.100
  • LOVE WILL REPLACE HATE.
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:06.060
  • CONTENTMENT WILL REPLACE
  • 00:06:06.060 --> 00:06:08.060

  • 00:13:16.040 --> 00:13:17.250
  • THIS IS THE ONE PLACE
  • 00:13:17.250 --> 00:13:18.220
  • IN THE BIBLE THAT GOD SAYS

  • OF AN UNFORGIVING SPIRIT.

  • EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:43.130
  • IF YOU HAVE A MIRACLE MINISTRY,

  • AN UNFORGIVING SPIRIT,
  • 00:13:50.100 --> 00:13:51.220
  • YOU ARE A CHARLATAN.
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:54.030
  • YOU ARE A CHARLATAN.
  • 00:13:54.030 --> 00:13:56.060
  • GOD DOES NOT HEAR THE PRAYER
  • 00:13:56.060 --> 00:13:57.160
  • OF A HUSBAND,
  • 00:13:57.160 --> 00:13:59.020
  • WHO DOES NOT TREAT HIS WIFE
  • 00:13:59.020 --> 00:14:00.230
  • WELL.
  • 00:14:00.230 --> 00:14:01.280
  • READ 1 PETER 3:7.
  • 00:14:01.280 --> 00:14:04.190
  • HE SAYS THE HUSBAND
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:05.280
  • THAT ABUSES HIS WIFE,
  • 00:14:05.280 --> 00:14:08.090
  • "HIS PRAYERS ARE LET."
  • 00:14:08.090 --> 00:14:10.030
  • THE WORD "LET" IS AN OLD
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:11.220
  • ENGLISH WORD THAT WE STILL USE
  • 00:14:11.220 --> 00:14:14.100
  • IN TENNIS.
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:14.280
  • WHEN THE BALL HITS THE NET,
  • 00:14:14.280 --> 00:14:16.140
  • IT GOES STRAIGHT DOWN.
  • 00:14:16.140 --> 00:14:18.220
  • IT IS PREVENTED FROM GETTING
  • 00:14:18.220 --> 00:14:20.120
  • TO THE NEXT COURT.
  • 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:22.260
  • THE BIBLE IS SAYING,
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:23.270
  • WHEN YOU, HUSBAND,
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:26.010
  • DO NOT TREAT YOUR WIFE WELL,
  • 00:14:26.010 --> 00:14:28.220
  • AND YOU GET DOWN TO PRAY,
  • 00:14:28.220 --> 00:14:31.190
  • YOUR PRAYER RICOCHETS OFF
  • 00:14:31.190 --> 00:14:33.120
  • THE ROOF AND HITS YOU
  • 00:14:33.120 --> 00:14:34.240
  • ON THE BALD HEAD.
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:36.240
  • GOD IS NOT LISTENING.
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:40.140
  • LADIES,
  • 00:14:40.140 --> 00:14:42.190
  • UH-OH.
  • 00:14:42.190 --> 00:14:44.170
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:44.170 --> 00:14:45.280
  • HOW DO YOU FORGIVE?
  • 00:14:45.280 --> 00:14:47.060
  • TOTALLY.
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:48.100
  • JESUS, OUR TEACHER,
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:49.100
  • TOLD THE STORY
  • 00:14:49.100 --> 00:14:50.030
  • OF THE UNMERCIFUL SLAVE.
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:52.020
  • THE KING,
  • 00:14:52.020 --> 00:14:52.190
  • WHO WANTED TO SETTLE
  • 00:14:52.190 --> 00:14:53.110
  • HIS ACCOUNTS,
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:54.170
  • CALLED IN A SLAVE THAT OWED HIM
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:57.010
  • TEN MILLION DOLLARS,
  • 00:14:57.010 --> 00:14:58.070
  • WHICH WAS TEN TIMES THE
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:14:59.160
  • NATIONAL DEBT OF THAT NATION.
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:02.080
  • AND WHEN THE SLAVE ANNOUNCED
  • 00:15:02.080 --> 00:15:03.130
  • THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:04.110
  • THE RESOURCES
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:05.270
  • AND PLEASE NOT TO THROW HIM,
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:07.090
  • HIS WIFE,
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:07.240
  • AND HIS CHILD
  • 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:08.170
  • INTO DEBTOR'S PRISON,
  • 00:15:08.170 --> 00:15:10.250
  • THE KING FORGAVE HIM
  • 00:15:10.250 --> 00:15:12.000
  • OF THAT ENORMOUS FORTUNE.
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:14.100
  • AND HE WENT RIGHT OUT
  • 00:15:14.100 --> 00:15:15.080
  • IN THE STREETS AND FOUND
  • 00:15:15.080 --> 00:15:16.090
  • SOMEBODY WHO OWED HIM $20.
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:19.110
  • AND HE HAD THAT GUY THROWN
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:20.180
  • INTO DEBTOR'S PRISON,
  • 00:15:20.180 --> 00:15:22.250
  • BECAUSE IT WAS HIS RIGHT
  • 00:15:22.250 --> 00:15:24.010
  • AS A DEBTOR.
  • 00:15:24.120 --> 00:15:27.120
  • AND THE OTHER SLAVES HEARD
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:28.140
  • ABOUT IT,
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:28.280
  • AND THEY WENT TO THE KING,
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:29.260
  • AND SAID,
  • 00:15:29.260 --> 00:15:30.110
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:31.220
  • TO THAT GUY THAT YOU FORGAVE
  • 00:15:31.220 --> 00:15:32.260
  • OF TEN MILLION DOLLARS?
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:35.080
  • HE WENT OUT AND FOUND A GUY
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:36.270
  • THAT OWED HIM 20 BUCKS,
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:38.110
  • AND THAT GUY IS NOW IN JAIL.
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:40.170
  • GOD WENT BACK --
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:41.200
  • THE KING WENT BACK TO THE GUY
  • 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:44.170
  • THAT HE LET GO
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:47.220
  • OF THE TEN MILLION DOLLAR DEBT.
  • 00:15:47.220 --> 00:15:49.050
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:15:49.050 --> 00:15:49.200
  • YOU UNMERCIFUL SERVANT.
  • 00:15:50.040 --> 00:15:53.040
  • I FORGAVE YOU OF ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:15:53.050 --> 00:15:56.050
  • AND YOU WENT OUT AND DID THAT
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:57.150
  • TO ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 00:15:57.150 --> 00:15:59.080
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:00.100
  • "AND HE WAS TURNED OVER
  • 00:16:00.100 --> 00:16:01.210
  • TO THE TORMENTORS."
  • 00:16:01.210 --> 00:16:04.200
  • AND HE WAS THERE FOR LIFE,
  • 00:16:04.200 --> 00:16:06.270
  • BECAUSE THERE'S NO WAY
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:08.020
  • HE WAS GOING TO PAY
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:09.170
  • 10 MILLION DOLLARS.
  • 00:16:09.170 --> 00:16:11.060
  • WHEN YOU REFUSE TO FORGIVE
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:13.010
  • SOMEONE ELSE,
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:14.190
  • GOD WILL TURN YOU OVER
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:16.040
  • TO THE TORMENTORS.
  • 00:16:16.040 --> 00:16:17.240
  • AND IN OUR SOCIETY,
  • 00:16:17.240 --> 00:16:19.030
  • MEDICAL SCIENCE ARE CALLING
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:21.030
  • THE TORMENTORS,
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:22.020
  • "BITTERNESS,"
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:22.280
  • AND "RAGE,"
  • 00:16:22.280 --> 00:16:24.010
  • AND "RESENTMENT,"
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:25.120
  • AND "ULCERS,"
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:26.190
  • AND "HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE."
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:28.090
  • THOSE KINDS OF THINGS
  • 00:16:28.090 --> 00:16:29.280
  • DO DESTROY YOUR HEALTH.
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:32.090
  • THEY PRODUCE MAJOR PHYSICAL
  • 00:16:32.090 --> 00:16:34.180
  • ILLNESS.
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:35.240
  • THERE'S A SIMPLE STATEMENT,
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:37.140
  • "FORGIVE AND LIVE."
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:39.060
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:40.050
  • FORGIVE AND LIVE.
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:42.130
  • FORGIVE AND LIVE.
  • 00:16:43.190 --> 00:16:46.190
  • HOW OFTEN SHALL I FORGIVE?
  • 00:16:48.260 --> 00:16:51.260
  • THERE WAS A JEWISH TEACHING
  • 00:16:51.260 --> 00:16:52.250
  • THAT IF YOU FORGAVE THREE
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:53.240
  • TIMES, YOU WERE GOOD.
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:56.050
  • SO PETER THOUGHT HE'D IMPRESS
  • 00:16:56.050 --> 00:16:57.090
  • THE LORD AND SAY,
  • 00:16:57.090 --> 00:16:58.070
  • "TILL SEVEN TIMES,"
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:17:00.040
  • BECAUSE THAT WAS --
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:01.010
  • REALLY SOUNDED SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:17:01.010 --> 00:17:02.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:02.280 --> 00:17:03.180
  • AND JESUS SAID, NO.
  • 00:17:03.180 --> 00:17:04.130
  • "SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN,"
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:05.160
  • WHICH IS 490.
  • 00:17:05.160 --> 00:17:07.140
  • THE MESSAGE IS,
  • 00:17:07.140 --> 00:17:08.080
  • YOU FORGIVE UNTIL IT BECOMES
  • 00:17:08.080 --> 00:17:09.100
  • A HABIT.
  • 00:17:09.100 --> 00:17:11.110
  • NOW I KNOW YOU HAVE RELATIVES,
  • 00:17:11.110 --> 00:17:13.020
  • NOT YOU,
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:13.200
  • BUT YOU HAVE RELATIVES
  • 00:17:13.200 --> 00:17:15.230

  • AND SMACK RIGHT IN THE KISSER,
  • 00:17:25.020 --> 00:17:26.270
  • I'M GOING TO GET YOU."
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:27.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:31.260
  • YOU SAY,
  • 00:17:31.260 --> 00:17:32.080
  • "THERE ARE NOT PEOPLE LIKE
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:33.020
  • THAT."
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:33.160
  • OH, YES, THERE ARE.
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:35.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:35.000 --> 00:17:36.010
  • DON'T KEEP RECORDS
  • 00:17:36.010 --> 00:17:37.260
  • OF ANYBODY'S FAULTS
  • 00:17:37.260 --> 00:17:39.250
  • BUT YOUR OWN,
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:41.060
  • AND YOU'LL FIND THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:17:41.060 --> 00:17:42.240
  • VERY FEW TO KEEP.
  • 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:45.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:49.000
  • THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS
  • 00:17:49.000 --> 00:17:51.110
  • CAN RESTORE YOUR HOME.
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:52.200
  • THIS IS A STORY,
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:55.040
  • A TRUE STORY,
  • 00:17:55.040 --> 00:17:57.060
  • OF A REBELLIOUS YOUNG MAN
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:17:58.120
  • WHO BROKE THE LAW AND WAS SENT
  • 00:17:58.120 --> 00:18:00.230
  • TO PRISON FOR EIGHT YEARS.
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:03.010
  • HE KNEW THAT HIS PARENTS WERE
  • 00:18:03.010 --> 00:18:04.020
  • DEEPLY HURT BY HIS FOOLISH DEED
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:06.270
  • AND SHAMED BY HIS IMPRISONMENT.
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:10.000
  • AS TIMES PAST,
  • 00:18:10.000 --> 00:18:11.050
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER HIS DAD
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:12.160
  • WOULD LET HIM COME HOME AGAIN
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:14.270
  • AFTER HE WAS RELEASED
  • 00:18:14.270 --> 00:18:16.010
  • FROM PRISON.
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.190
  • SO HE WROTE A LETTER TO HIS
  • 00:18:17.190 --> 00:18:18.260
  • MOTHER STATING THAT HE'S GOING
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:21.110
  • TO BE RELEASED IN A FEW DAYS
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:23.210
  • AND WOULD TAKE THE TRAIN HOME.
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:26.020
  • AND IN THE LETTER,
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:26.220
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.160
  • "IF YOU AND DAD WILL FORGIVE ME
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:30.220
  • AND LET ME COME HOME AGAIN,
  • 00:18:30.220 --> 00:18:33.060
  • PLEASE TIE A PIECE OF BED SHEET
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:35.160
  • IN THE OAK TREE
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:37.090
  • BY THE RAILROAD TRACK,
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:39.130
  • AND I'LL GET OFF THE TRAIN.
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:41.270
  • IF I DO NOT SEE THE RIBBON
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:43.060
  • OF CLOTH IN THE TREE,
  • 00:18:43.120 --> 00:18:46.120
  • I WILL NOT GET OFF THE TRAIN.
  • 00:18:47.000 --> 00:18:50.000
  • AND I WILL NEVER CONTACT YOU
  • 00:18:50.000 --> 00:18:51.140
  • AGAIN."
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:53.170
  • THE DAY CAME FOR HIS RELEASE
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:54.260
  • FROM PRISON.
  • 00:18:54.260 --> 00:18:56.140
  • AND HE WALKED TO THE TRAIN
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:57.140
  • STATION,
  • 00:18:57.140 --> 00:18:58.170
  • AND HE BOUGHT A TICKET.
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:18:59.290
  • AND WITH EVERY TURN
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:01.020
  • OF THE WHEELS,
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:02.070
  • THE TENSION MOUNTED
  • 00:19:02.070 --> 00:19:03.250
  • IN HIS HEART AND IN HIS MIND.
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:08.010
  • WOULD MY PARENTS FORGIVE ME?
  • 00:19:08.010 --> 00:19:10.200
  • WOULD MY DAD FORGIVE ME?
  • 00:19:10.200 --> 00:19:13.100
  • WONDERING IF THAT CLOTH RIBBON
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:15.090
  • WOULD BE TIED IN THE TREE,
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:18.100
  • AS THE TRAIN ROUNDED THE BEND
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.120
  • THAT LED TO THEIR FARM,
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:21.290
  • HE COULD NOT STAND IT
  • 00:19:21.290 --> 00:19:22.290
  • ANY LONGER.
  • 00:19:22.290 --> 00:19:23.260
  • FEARING HE WOULD BE REJECTED
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:26.030
  • AND UNFORGIVEN,
  • 00:19:26.030 --> 00:19:27.080
  • HE ASKED THE MAN RIDING
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:28.200
  • NEXT TO HIM;
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:29.130
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:19:29.130 --> 00:19:30.150
  • "WOULD YOU PLEASE LOOK OUT THE
  • 00:19:30.230 --> 00:19:33.230
  • WINDOW AT THE TREE THAT'S NEXT
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:36.260
  • TO THE RAILROAD TRACK AND TELL
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:39.090
  • ME IF YOU SEE A CLOTH RIBBON
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:42.000
  • TIED TO IT."
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:44.090
  • THE MAN LOOKED OUT THE TRAIN
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:45.240
  • WINDOW AT THE TREE.
  • 00:19:45.240 --> 00:19:48.180
  • AND THE BOY ASKED HIM,
  • 00:19:48.180 --> 00:19:49.290
  • "DO YOU SEE IT?"
  • 00:19:49.290 --> 00:19:51.280
  • THE MAN SAID, "NO.
  • 00:19:51.280 --> 00:19:54.180
  • I DON'T SEE ONE RIBBON;
  • 00:19:54.180 --> 00:19:56.150
  • I SEE HUNDREDS OF RIBBONS
  • 00:19:56.150 --> 00:19:58.170
  • ON EVERY BRANCH OF THAT TREE.
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:20:00.280
  • I SEE THEM TIED TO THE FENCE.
  • 00:20:00.280 --> 00:20:03.060
  • I SEE THEM ON THE CLOTHESLINE.
  • 00:20:03.060 --> 00:20:05.210
  • I SEE THEM ON THE BACK PORCH.
  • 00:20:05.210 --> 00:20:08.030
  • THERE'S SO MANY WHITE RIBBONS
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:09.130
  • ON THAT FARM;
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:10.240
  • IT LOOKS LIKE IT SNOWED.
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:12.210
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN?"
  • 00:20:12.210 --> 00:20:14.070
  • HE SHOUTED THROUGH TEARS,
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:16.060
  • AS HE LEAPED OFF THE TRAIN,
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:18.080
  • "IT MEANS I'VE BEEN FORGIVEN!
  • 00:20:18.080 --> 00:20:20.150

  • 00:20:20.150 --> 00:20:22.030
  • I'M GOING HOME!
  • 00:20:22.030 --> 00:20:23.250
  • I'M GOING HOME!"
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:25.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:32.070
  • CAN WE STAND?
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:34.110
  • CAN WE STAND?
  • 00:20:34.110 --> 00:20:35.230
  • MUSIC
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:37.080
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HERE

  • THE MEMORY TORMENTS YOU.
  • 00:20:46.130 --> 00:20:49.130
  • JUST THE RECALLING OF IT
  • 00:20:49.200 --> 00:20:52.200
  • SENDS YOU INTO A RAGE.
  • 00:20:53.270 --> 00:20:56.270
  • YOU KNOW YOU NEED TO FORGIVE
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:58.110
  • THAT PERSON IF YOU'RE EVER
  • 00:20:58.110 --> 00:21:00.290
  • GOING TO REALLY HAVE

  • TO BE HEALED?
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:21.010

  • FOR CHRIST'S SAKE,"
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:28.050
  • BECAUSE IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE
  • 00:21:28.050 --> 00:21:29.120
  • ANOTHER,
  • 00:21:29.120 --> 00:21:31.200
  • GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU.

  • OR HOW MANY OF YOU HERE
  • 00:21:35.130 --> 00:21:36.080
  • CAN SAY, PASTOR,
  • 00:21:36.080 --> 00:21:37.010
  • MY RELATIONSHIPS ARE CORRUPTED
  • 00:21:37.130 --> 00:21:40.130
  • BY BITTERNESS,
  • 00:21:40.130 --> 00:21:41.080
  • AND RESENTMENT,
  • 00:21:41.080 --> 00:21:42.000
  • AND REJECTION?
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:44.020
  • I WOULD LOVE TO LIVE A LIFE

  • OF JOY AND PEACE,
  • 00:21:47.150 --> 00:21:50.150
  • BUT THERE'S THAT SOMETHING
  • 00:21:50.150 --> 00:21:52.180
  • IN MY PAST THAT GNAWS
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.240
  • AT MY MIND
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:56.170
  • AND NEVER LETS ME GO.
  • 00:21:56.200 --> 00:21:59.200
  • I WANT THE CORD TO BE BROKEN.

  • IT BEGINS IN EXODUS 30.
  • 00:28:11.040 --> 00:28:14.000
  • IN EXODUS 30,
  • 00:28:14.000 --> 00:28:15.030
  • GOD TELLS MOSES
  • 00:28:15.030 --> 00:28:16.130
  • THAT IN THE TABERNACLE
  • 00:28:16.130 --> 00:28:17.290
  • WHERE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL
  • 00:28:17.290 --> 00:28:19.120
  • WERE GOING TO MEET WITH GOD;
  • 00:28:19.120 --> 00:28:20.180
  • THAT HE SHOULD BUILD
  • 00:28:20.180 --> 00:28:21.190
  • A BRONZE LAVER.
  • 00:28:21.190 --> 00:28:23.230
  • AND THIS LAVER,
  • 00:28:23.230 --> 00:28:24.210
  • IS A HUGE WASH BASIN.
  • 00:28:24.210 --> 00:28:26.160
  • IT'S FILLED WITH WATER.
  • 00:28:26.160 --> 00:28:28.010

  • 00:28:28.010 --> 00:28:28.290
  • THERE ARE MIRRORS.
  • 00:28:28.290 --> 00:28:31.110
  • NOW GOD WAS SO ADAMANT THAT THE
  • 00:28:31.110 --> 00:28:33.150
  • HIGH PRIESTS HAD TO WASH BEFORE
  • 00:28:33.150 --> 00:28:35.150
  • THEY WENT INTO THE HOLY PLACE;
  • 00:28:35.150 --> 00:28:37.080
  • THAT HE SAID IN EXODUS 30:20,
  • 00:28:37.170 --> 00:28:40.170
  • "IF THE HIGH PRIEST
  • 00:28:40.170 --> 00:28:41.180
  • DOES NOT WASH,
  • 00:28:41.180 --> 00:28:42.230
  • HE WILL DIE."

  • NOW HOW MANY OF YOU,
  • 00:28:45.200 --> 00:28:46.220
  • IF YOU KNEW THAT GOD WAS GOING
  • 00:28:46.220 --> 00:28:47.290
  • TO KILL EVERYBODY WHO DIDN'T
  • 00:28:47.290 --> 00:28:49.050
  • TAKE A SHOWER BEFORE THEY CAME
  • 00:28:49.050 --> 00:28:50.170
  • TO CHURCH --
  • 00:28:50.170 --> 00:28:51.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:28:51.190 --> 00:28:54.160
  • -- YOU'D BE WILLING TO GET
  • 00:28:54.160 --> 00:28:55.140
  • IN A LITTLE SOAP AND WATER?
  • 00:28:55.140 --> 00:28:57.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:28:57.060 --> 00:29:00.060
  • THE THING ABOUT THIS LAVER
  • 00:29:00.060 --> 00:29:03.050
  • IS THAT WHEN THE PRIEST
  • 00:29:03.050 --> 00:29:04.220
  • LOOKED INTO THE WATER,
  • 00:29:04.220 --> 00:29:07.060
  • AND HE SAW IN THE BOTTOM,
  • 00:29:07.060 --> 00:29:09.090
  • THE MIRRORS,
  • 00:29:09.090 --> 00:29:11.030
  • HE WENT INTO THE PURE WATER
  • 00:29:11.030 --> 00:29:13.100
  • AND BEGAN TO WASH HIS HANDS.
  • 00:29:13.100 --> 00:29:15.110
  • BUT HE COULD SEE
  • 00:29:15.110 --> 00:29:16.090
  • HIS REFLECTION.
  • 00:29:16.090 --> 00:29:18.160
  • AND IT WAS A REMINDER
  • 00:29:18.160 --> 00:29:19.260
  • THAT HE NEEDED CLEANSING.
  • 00:29:20.280 --> 00:29:23.280
  • YOU AND I MUST BE REMINDED
  • 00:29:23.280 --> 00:29:26.100
  • THAT WE CANNOT SAVE OURSELVES;
  • 00:29:26.100 --> 00:29:28.250
  • WE NEEDED CLEANSING.
  • 00:29:29.160 --> 00:29:32.160
  • WE NEEDED A SAVIOR.
  • 00:29:32.160 --> 00:29:34.090
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST LIES THAT
  • 00:29:34.090 --> 00:29:35.180
  • YOU'LL EVER TELL YOURSELF
  • 00:29:35.180 --> 00:29:37.020
  • IS THAT YOU COULD HAVE DONE IT
  • 00:29:37.020 --> 00:29:38.050
  • ALL BY YOURSELF.
  • 00:29:38.050 --> 00:29:39.080
  • JESUS SAID IT WELL
  • 00:29:39.080 --> 00:29:40.080
  • IN THIS CHAPTER.
  • 00:29:40.080 --> 00:29:41.110
  • HE SAID, "APART FROM ME,
  • 00:29:41.110 --> 00:29:42.280
  • YOU CAN DO NOTHING."
  • 00:29:43.050 --> 00:29:46.050
  • EVERY TIME WE OPEN THE WORD
  • 00:29:46.050 --> 00:29:47.180
  • OF GOD AND WE LOOK INTO IT,
  • 00:29:47.180 --> 00:29:49.220
  • IT'S LIKE WE'RE LOOKING
  • 00:29:49.220 --> 00:29:50.210
  • INTO A MIRROR.
  • 00:29:50.210 --> 00:29:51.280
  • AND WHAT WE SEE IN IT
  • 00:29:51.280 --> 00:29:53.150
  • IS OUR REFLECTION.
  • 00:29:53.150 --> 00:29:55.280
  • THIS BOOK IS ALIVE,
  • 00:29:55.280 --> 00:29:57.190

  • 00:29:57.190 --> 00:29:59.120
  • IT READS YOU.
  • 00:29:59.120 --> 00:30:01.150
  • IF ALL YOU'RE GETTING OUT OF
  • 00:30:01.150 --> 00:30:02.150
  • THE BIBLE IS SCRIPTURE VERSES
  • 00:30:02.150 --> 00:30:04.000
  • FOR SOMEBODY ELSE,
  • 00:30:04.000 --> 00:30:04.280
  • YOU'RE READING IT WRONG.
  • 00:30:04.280 --> 00:30:07.210
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW PEOPLE
  • 00:30:07.210 --> 00:30:08.120
  • THAT GO,
  • 00:30:08.120 --> 00:30:09.020
  • "OH, I FOUND THAT SCRIPTURE
  • 00:30:09.020 --> 00:30:09.240
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:30:09.240 --> 00:30:10.100
  • THAT'S FOR YOU, HONEY"?

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:30:18.180 --> 00:30:21.180
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT SCRIPTURE
  • 00:30:21.180 --> 00:30:22.120
  • IS USED FOR.
  • 00:30:22.120 --> 00:30:24.150
  • SCRIPTURE IS NOT
  • 00:30:24.150 --> 00:30:25.100
  • SO YOU CAN SEE OTHERS.
  • 00:30:25.100 --> 00:30:26.270
  • SCRIPTURE IS SO YOU CAN SEE
  • 00:30:26.270 --> 00:30:28.100
  • YOU.
  • 00:30:28.100 --> 00:30:29.280
  • AND WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE WHAT
  • 00:30:29.280 --> 00:30:31.040
  • ISN'T OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:30:31.040 --> 00:30:33.070
  • YOU CHANGE IT.
  • 00:30:33.070 --> 00:30:35.050
  • THIS IS HOW JAMES SAID IT;
  • 00:30:35.050 --> 00:30:36.240
  • IT SAID,
  • 00:30:36.240 --> 00:30:37.130
  • "DO NOT BE HEARERS ONLY,

  • FOR A MAN WHO HEARS ONLY
  • 00:30:47.220 --> 00:30:50.000
  • AND DOES NOT DO WHAT HE HEARS
  • 00:30:50.000 --> 00:30:51.280
  • IS LIKE A MAN WHO LOOKS
  • 00:30:51.280 --> 00:30:53.070
  • INTO THE MIRROR AND FORGETS
  • 00:30:53.070 --> 00:30:55.010
  • WHAT KIND OF MAN HE WAS."
  • 00:30:55.010 --> 00:30:57.180
  • LADIES, HOW MANY OF YOU,
  • 00:30:57.180 --> 00:30:58.210
  • IF YOU WENT AND CHECKED
  • 00:30:58.210 --> 00:30:59.110
  • YOUR REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR,
  • 00:30:59.110 --> 00:31:00.290
  • AND YOU SAW THAT YOUR MASCARA
  • 00:31:00.290 --> 00:31:02.150
  • HAD RUN,
  • 00:31:02.150 --> 00:31:03.120
  • AND THAT YOUR LIPSTICK
  • 00:31:03.120 --> 00:31:04.070
  • WAS SMEARED,
  • 00:31:04.070 --> 00:31:05.020
  • AND THAT ONE EARRING
  • 00:31:05.020 --> 00:31:06.030
  • WAS MISSING;
  • 00:31:06.030 --> 00:31:06.270
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD LIKE
  • 00:31:06.270 --> 00:31:07.240
  • IN THAT MIRROR AND GOD,
  • 00:31:07.240 --> 00:31:08.210
  • "GIRL, YOU LOOK GOOD"?
  • 00:31:08.210 --> 00:31:11.020
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:31:11.020 --> 00:31:13.280
  • NO.
  • 00:31:13.280 --> 00:31:14.080
  • YOU'D THANK GOD FOR THE MIRROR.
  • 00:31:14.080 --> 00:31:15.270
  • AND YOU'D BEGIN TO DO WHATEVER
  • 00:31:15.270 --> 00:31:17.050
  • YOU NEEDED TO DO TO MAKE
  • 00:31:17.050 --> 00:31:18.060
  • YOURSELF PRESENTABLE AGAIN.
  • 00:31:18.110 --> 00:31:21.110
  • BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE,
  • 00:31:21.110 --> 00:31:22.030
  • WHO OPEN UP GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:31:22.030 --> 00:31:23.170
  • AND THEY SEE THEIR REFLECTION,
  • 00:31:23.170 --> 00:31:24.250
  • AND THEY SEE THEIR FLAWS,
  • 00:31:24.250 --> 00:31:25.260
  • AND THEY SEE WHAT NEEDS
  • 00:31:25.260 --> 00:31:26.210
  • TO CHANGE;
  • 00:31:26.210 --> 00:31:27.170
  • AND THEY GO,
  • 00:31:27.170 --> 00:31:28.040
  • "MAN, YOU LOOK GOOD."
  • 00:31:28.040 --> 00:31:30.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:31:30.220 --> 00:31:31.250
  • THEY'RE HEARING
  • 00:31:31.250 --> 00:31:32.260
  • BUT THEY'RE NOT DOING.
  • 00:31:33.000 --> 00:31:36.000
  • PAUL SAID TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:31:36.000 --> 00:31:37.090
  • IN EPHESIANS THAT HE, CHRIST,
  • 00:31:37.090 --> 00:31:39.040
  • WOULD SANCTIFY US
  • 00:31:39.040 --> 00:31:40.120
  • WITH THE WASHING OF THE WATER
  • 00:31:40.120 --> 00:31:42.270
  • OF HIS WORD.
  • 00:31:42.270 --> 00:31:45.030
  • HOW WOULD HE SANCTIFY US?
  • 00:31:45.030 --> 00:31:46.130
  • WITH THE WASHING OF THE WATER
  • 00:31:46.130 --> 00:31:48.220
  • OF HIS WORD.
  • 00:31:48.220 --> 00:31:50.210
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S WRONG
  • 00:31:50.210 --> 00:31:51.260
  • WITH MANY CHURCHES THESE DAYS
  • 00:31:51.260 --> 00:31:53.130
  • IS THERE'S NOT ENOUGH WORD
  • 00:31:53.130 --> 00:31:55.030
  • IN THAT CHURCH TO WASH OFF
  • 00:31:55.030 --> 00:31:56.240
  • THE FILTH OF SIN.
  • 00:31:56.240 --> 00:31:59.220
  • PAUL TOLD TIMOTHY,
  • 00:31:59.220 --> 00:32:01.000
  • "I DESIRE THAT MEN EVERYWHERE
  • 00:32:01.000 --> 00:32:03.060
  • WOULD LIFT UP HOLY HANDS
  • 00:32:03.060 --> 00:32:05.170
  • WITHOUT FEAR
  • 00:32:05.170 --> 00:32:06.270
  • AND WITHOUT DOUBTING."
  • 00:32:06.270 --> 00:32:08.290
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT HOLY HANDS
  • 00:32:08.290 --> 00:32:10.020
  • ARE?
  • 00:32:10.020 --> 00:32:11.240
  • HOLY HANDS ARE CLEAN HANDS.
  • 00:32:11.240 --> 00:32:14.190
  • DO YOU KNOW HOW THEY GOT CLEAN?
  • 00:32:14.190 --> 00:32:16.270
  • BY THE WASHING OF THE WATER
  • 00:32:16.270 --> 00:32:19.030
  • OF THE WORD.
  • 00:32:19.030 --> 00:32:20.200
  • THAT MEANS THAT AT SOME POINT
  • 00:32:20.200 --> 00:32:21.280
  • IN THE WEEK,
  • 00:32:21.280 --> 00:32:22.280
  • THEY BEGAN TO READ THIS WORD,
  • 00:32:22.280 --> 00:32:25.000
  • AND WASH THE FILTH OFF
  • 00:32:25.000 --> 00:32:26.170
  • OF THEIR SPIRIT,
  • 00:32:26.170 --> 00:32:27.180
  • SO THAT WHEN THEY CAME INTO THE
  • 00:32:27.180 --> 00:32:29.070
  • PRESENCE OF THE LORD ON SUNDAY,
  • 00:32:29.070 --> 00:32:30.270
  • THEY COULD RECEIVE
  • 00:32:30.270 --> 00:32:31.290
  • THE BLESSINGS OF GOD
  • 00:32:31.290 --> 00:32:33.060
  • THAT WERE MADE AVAILABLE
  • 00:32:33.060 --> 00:32:34.050
  • TO THEM IN THE SANCTUARY.
  • 00:32:34.050 --> 00:32:36.110
  • I'VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:32:36.110 --> 00:32:37.220
  • WHO GO TO CHURCH,
  • 00:32:37.220 --> 00:32:38.080
  • "WELL I JUST DON'T GET BLESSED
  • 00:32:38.080 --> 00:32:39.090
  • IN THE SERVICES."
  • 00:32:39.090 --> 00:32:40.050
  • THAT'S NOT GOD'S FAULT;
  • 00:32:40.050 --> 00:32:41.090
  • THAT'S YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:32:41.090 --> 00:32:42.170
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:32:42.170 --> 00:32:43.180
  • AND I CAN PROVE IT TO YOU.
  • 00:32:43.180 --> 00:32:45.180
  • WHEN I WAS A CHILD,
  • 00:32:45.180 --> 00:32:46.260
  • MY MOTHER COULD COOK
  • 00:32:46.260 --> 00:32:47.290
  • THE BEST FOOD.
  • 00:32:47.290 --> 00:32:48.250
  • SHE STILL DOES.
  • 00:32:48.250 --> 00:32:49.180
  • IF SHE EVER INVITES YOU
  • 00:32:49.180 --> 00:32:50.180
  • TO DINNER, GO.
  • 00:32:50.180 --> 00:32:52.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:32:52.120 --> 00:32:54.240
  • BUT BEFORE YOU COULD SIT DOWN
  • 00:32:54.240 --> 00:32:56.050
  • AND EAT WHAT SHE HAD PREPARED,
  • 00:32:56.050 --> 00:32:57.230
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE WOULD
  • 00:32:57.230 --> 00:32:58.200
  • ASK YOU?
  • 00:32:58.200 --> 00:32:59.290
  • "HAVE YOU WASHED YOUR --"
  • 00:32:59.290 --> 00:33:02.000
  • [Hands.]
  • 00:33:02.000 --> 00:33:03.250
  • BECAUSE HE WASN'T
  • 00:33:03.250 --> 00:33:04.120
  • GOING TO LET THE FILTHINESS
  • 00:33:04.120 --> 00:33:05.170
  • FROM OUTSIDE, INSIDE.
  • 00:33:05.170 --> 00:33:07.080
  • AND SHE CERTAINLY WASN'T GOING
  • 00:33:07.080 --> 00:33:08.030
  • TO LET IT WORK AT HER TABLE.
  • 00:33:08.030 --> 00:33:11.010
  • GOD IS THE SAME WAY.
  • 00:33:11.010 --> 00:33:13.100
  • WHEN YOU COME INTO HIS PRESENCE
  • 00:33:13.100 --> 00:33:14.280
  • AND YOU DON'T RECEIVE
  • 00:33:14.280 --> 00:33:15.240
  • THE FULLNESS OF JOY,
  • 00:33:15.240 --> 00:33:17.040
  • IT'S NOT THAT HE HASN'T DONE
  • 00:33:17.040 --> 00:33:18.150
  • WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO;
  • 00:33:18.150 --> 00:33:20.000
  • IT'S THAT YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR
  • 00:33:20.000 --> 00:33:21.070
  • HANDS CLEAN AND READY FOR HIM
  • 00:33:21.070 --> 00:33:23.210
  • TO POUR INTO THEM THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:33:23.210 --> 00:33:25.050
  • THAT YOU NEED TO RECEIVE.
  • 00:33:25.050 --> 00:33:26.190
  • HOW DO YOU CLEAN YOUR HANDS?
  • 00:33:26.190 --> 00:33:28.150
  • YOU READ THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:33:28.260 --> 00:33:31.260
  • YOU GIVE YOURSELF THE
  • 00:33:31.260 --> 00:33:32.220
  • OPPORTUNITY TO ALLOW THAT WORD
  • 00:33:32.220 --> 00:33:35.060
  • TO BEGIN TO DEVELOP YOU.
  • 00:33:35.060 --> 00:33:37.040
  • AND IT'S PAINFUL.
  • 00:33:37.040 --> 00:33:39.110
  • THAT'S WHERE THE GROWING PAIN
  • 00:33:39.110 --> 00:33:40.170
  • COMES FROM.
  • 00:33:40.170 --> 00:33:42.040
  • WHEN YOU READ THE WORD
  • 00:33:42.040 --> 00:33:43.060
  • AND THE WORD REMINDS YOU,
  • 00:33:43.060 --> 00:33:44.080
  • YOU NEED TO CHANGE;
  • 00:33:44.080 --> 00:33:45.160
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU HAVE TO BEGIN
  • 00:33:45.160 --> 00:33:47.160
  • TO STRUGGLE.
  • 00:33:47.160 --> 00:33:49.170
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU HAVE TO DECIDE
  • 00:33:49.170 --> 00:33:51.130
  • THAT YOU MUST DECREASE
  • 00:33:51.130 --> 00:33:52.260
  • THAT HE MIGHT INCREASE.
  • 00:33:52.260 --> 00:33:54.120
  • THAT'S WHEN SCRIPTURES LIKE,
  • 00:33:54.120 --> 00:33:55.220
  • "IF ANY MAN COME AFTER ME,
  • 00:33:55.220 --> 00:33:57.020
  • LET HIM DENY HIMSELF,
  • 00:33:57.210 --> 00:34:00.230
  • TAKE UP HIS CROSS,
  • 00:34:00.230 --> 00:34:01.190
  • AND FOLLOW ME,"
  • 00:34:01.190 --> 00:34:02.290
  • BECOME REAL.
  • 00:34:02.290 --> 00:34:04.290
  • BUT EVERY CHILD OF GOD
  • 00:34:04.290 --> 00:34:06.050
  • BEGINS WITH THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:34:06.140 --> 00:34:09.140
  • JUST AS NEWBORN BABES
  • 00:34:09.140 --> 00:34:10.250
  • CRAVE MILK,
  • 00:34:10.250 --> 00:34:11.250
  • YOU WERE CREATED TO LIVE OFF
  • 00:34:11.250 --> 00:34:14.110
  • OF THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:34:14.110 --> 00:34:16.100
  • DON'T ALLOW ANY OTHER SOURCE
  • 00:34:16.100 --> 00:34:18.000
  • TO BECOME YOUR RESOURCE
  • 00:34:18.000 --> 00:34:19.160
  • OTHER THAN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:34:19.160 --> 00:34:21.180
  • 1 PETER,
  • 00:34:21.180 --> 00:34:22.140
  • HE SAID TO THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:34:22.140 --> 00:34:23.140
  • CHURCH,
  • 00:34:23.140 --> 00:34:23.270
  • "AS NEWBORN BABES DESIRE
  • 00:34:23.270 --> 00:34:25.170
  • THE PURE MILK OF THE WORD
  • 00:34:25.170 --> 00:34:27.020
  • THAT THEY MAY GROW."
  • 00:34:27.020 --> 00:34:29.210
  • HOW DO THEY GROW?
  • 00:34:29.210 --> 00:34:31.000
  • THE WORD.
  • 00:34:31.000 --> 00:34:32.200
  • WHEN KENDAL AND I BROUGHT
  • 00:34:32.200 --> 00:34:33.140
  • OUR FOUR CHILDREN HOME
  • 00:34:33.140 --> 00:34:34.140
  • FROM THE HOSPITAL,
  • 00:34:34.140 --> 00:34:35.230
  • WE DIDN'T GIVE THEM A PRINTED
  • 00:34:35.230 --> 00:34:37.010
  • MENU OF OPTIONS OF THINGS
  • 00:34:37.010 --> 00:34:38.160
  • THAT WERE AVAILABLE FOR SUPPER.
  • 00:34:38.160 --> 00:34:40.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:34:40.180 --> 00:34:41.290
  • THEY WERE NEWBORN BABIES.
  • 00:34:41.290 --> 00:34:43.260
  • WE SAID,
  • 00:34:43.260 --> 00:34:44.110
  • YOU'RE GOING TOE GET MILK
  • 00:34:44.110 --> 00:34:45.010
  • IN THE MORNING,
  • 00:34:45.010 --> 00:34:45.160
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GET MILK
  • 00:34:45.160 --> 00:34:46.090
  • IN THE NOON TIME,
  • 00:34:46.090 --> 00:34:47.050
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GET MILK
  • 00:34:47.050 --> 00:34:47.250
  • AT NIGHT.
  • 00:34:47.250 --> 00:34:49.180
  • WHY?
  • 00:34:49.180 --> 00:34:49.290
  • BECAUSE AS NEWBORN INFANTS,
  • 00:34:49.290 --> 00:34:51.180
  • THAT WAS ALL THEY COULD DIGEST.
  • 00:34:51.180 --> 00:34:53.090
  • YOU, AS A NEWBORN CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:34:53.090 --> 00:34:55.040
  • THE ONLY THING THAT YOU WERE
  • 00:34:55.040 --> 00:34:56.050
  • CREATED TO DIGEST IS THIS WORD.
  • 00:34:57.080 --> 00:35:00.100
  • OFTEN TIMES,
  • 00:35:00.100 --> 00:35:00.290
  • PEOPLE WILL ADD OTHER THINGS
  • 00:35:00.290 --> 00:35:02.230
  • IN ORDER TO CREATE SOME KIND
  • 00:35:02.230 --> 00:35:04.070
  • OF SPIRITUAL PROGRESS,
  • 00:35:04.070 --> 00:35:05.200
  • BUT IT'S NOT EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:35:05.200 --> 00:35:07.070
  • ONLY THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD
  • 00:35:07.070 --> 00:35:09.060
  • IS WHAT YOU NEED.
  • 00:35:09.060 --> 00:35:11.130
  • LET'S CONSIDER THIS EXAMPLE
  • 00:35:11.130 --> 00:35:12.210
  • HERE OF HOW THE WRITTEN WORD
  • 00:35:12.210 --> 00:35:14.070
  • WORKS IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:35:14.070 --> 00:35:16.150
  • MATTHEW 4:4 THROUGH 7, AND 10,
  • 00:35:17.020 --> 00:35:20.020
  • IN THIS PASSAGE,
  • 00:35:20.020 --> 00:35:21.080
  • JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:35:21.080 --> 00:35:22.160
  • THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER
  • 00:35:22.160 --> 00:35:23.140
  • OF OUR FAITH,
  • 00:35:23.140 --> 00:35:24.150
  • IS BEING TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL.
  • 00:35:24.150 --> 00:35:26.260
  • AND THERE'S SOME THINGS
  • 00:35:26.260 --> 00:35:27.150
  • THAT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:35:27.150 --> 00:35:28.140
  • ABOUT HIS TEMPTATION.
  • 00:35:28.140 --> 00:35:30.060
  • IF GOD ALLOWED HIS SON
  • 00:35:30.060 --> 00:35:32.120
  • TO BE TEMPTED,
  • 00:35:32.120 --> 00:35:33.160
  • YOU WILL BE TEMPTED.
  • 00:35:33.160 --> 00:35:36.040
  • AND GOD SENT HIS SON
  • 00:35:36.040 --> 00:35:37.170
  • INTO THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:35:37.170 --> 00:35:38.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
  • 00:35:38.160 --> 00:35:39.100
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT LED HIM INTO
  • 00:35:39.100 --> 00:35:41.230
  • THE MIDDLE OF THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:35:41.230 --> 00:35:43.260
  • AND THERE,
  • 00:35:43.260 --> 00:35:44.120
  • HE FASTED 40 DAYS
  • 00:35:44.120 --> 00:35:46.080
  • AND WAS TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL.
  • 00:35:46.080 --> 00:35:48.050
  • THE FIRST THING YOU NEED
  • 00:35:48.050 --> 00:35:48.270
  • TO RECOGNIZE IS THAT THE DEVIL
  • 00:35:48.270 --> 00:35:50.260
  • DID NOT SHOW UP ON DAY ONE.
  • 00:35:51.190 --> 00:35:54.190
  • HE DIDN'T SHOW UP WHEN CHRIST
  • 00:35:54.190 --> 00:35:55.280
  • STILL HAD STRENGTH.
  • 00:35:55.280 --> 00:35:57.090
  • HE SHOWED UP ON DAY 40,
  • 00:35:57.090 --> 00:35:59.040
  • WHEN CHRIST WAS HUNGRY,
  • 00:35:59.040 --> 00:36:00.190
  • WHEN HE WAS TIRED,
  • 00:36:00.190 --> 00:36:01.290
  • WHEN HE WAS NEEDY.
  • 00:36:01.290 --> 00:36:03.090
  • HE WAS EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:36:03.090 --> 00:36:04.100
  • PHYSICALLY,
  • 00:36:04.100 --> 00:36:04.290
  • AND SPIRITUALLY SPENT;
  • 00:36:04.290 --> 00:36:06.230
  • AND THAT'S WHEN THE DEVIL
  • 00:36:06.230 --> 00:36:07.200
  • SHOWED UP.
  • 00:36:07.200 --> 00:36:08.250
  • THE GREATEST TEMPTATIONS
  • 00:36:08.250 --> 00:36:10.100
  • OF YOUR LIFE WILL COME
  • 00:36:10.100 --> 00:36:11.260
  • WHEN YOU ARE EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:36:11.260 --> 00:36:12.260
  • SPIRITUALLY,
  • 00:36:12.260 --> 00:36:13.160
  • AND PHYSICALLY OUT OF GAS.
  • 00:36:14.110 --> 00:36:17.110
  • THE DEVIL CAME TO HIM
  • 00:36:17.110 --> 00:36:18.210
  • AND HE TEMPTED HIM.
  • 00:36:18.210 --> 00:36:19.250
  • AND THE WAY HE TEMPTED CHRIST
  • 00:36:19.250 --> 00:36:21.080
  • IS THE WAY HE'LL TEMPT YOU.
  • 00:36:21.080 --> 00:36:23.050
  • HE TEMPTED HIM WITH DOUBT
  • 00:36:23.050 --> 00:36:24.140
  • FIRST.
  • 00:36:24.140 --> 00:36:24.280
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:36:24.280 --> 00:36:25.140
  • "IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD..."
  • 00:36:26.090 --> 00:36:29.090
  • HE WANTED TO CALL INTO QUESTION
  • 00:36:29.090 --> 00:36:30.240
  • THE IDENTITY OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:36:30.240 --> 00:36:32.170
  • JESUS KNEW HE WAS THE SON OF
  • 00:36:32.170 --> 00:36:34.050
  • GOD SINCE THE GENESIS OF TIME,
  • 00:36:34.050 --> 00:36:36.060
  • BECAUSE NOTHING HAD BEEN
  • 00:36:36.060 --> 00:36:37.040
  • CREATED WITHOUT HIM.
  • 00:36:37.040 --> 00:36:38.220
  • HE KNEW HE WAS THE SEED
  • 00:36:38.220 --> 00:36:40.160
  • OF THE WOMAN.
  • 00:36:40.160 --> 00:36:41.050
  • HE KNEW THAT HE WAS
  • 00:36:41.050 --> 00:36:42.120
  • THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:36:42.120 --> 00:36:43.070
  • HE KNEW ALL OF THESE THINGS.
  • 00:36:43.070 --> 00:36:44.250
  • AND THE FIRST THING THE DEVIL
  • 00:36:44.250 --> 00:36:46.020
  • WANTED TO DO WAS CHALLENGE HIM
  • 00:36:46.020 --> 00:36:48.020
  • WITH WHAT HE KNEW.
  • 00:36:48.020 --> 00:36:50.040
  • " IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD..."
  • 00:36:50.040 --> 00:36:51.260
  • WHEN THE DEVIL COMES
  • 00:36:51.260 --> 00:36:52.170
  • TO TEMPT YOU,
  • 00:36:52.170 --> 00:36:53.090
  • THE FIRST THING HE'S GOING
  • 00:36:53.090 --> 00:36:54.050
  • TO DO IS OPEN UP THE DOOR
  • 00:36:54.050 --> 00:36:56.010
  • OF DOUBT.
  • 00:36:56.010 --> 00:36:56.230
  • IF YOU'RE REALLY SAVED,
  • 00:36:56.230 --> 00:36:58.140
  • YOU WOULDN'T THINK LIKE THAT.
  • 00:36:58.140 --> 00:36:59.220
  • IF GOD REALLY LOVES YOU,
  • 00:36:59.220 --> 00:37:01.160
  • HE WOULDN'T LET YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:37:01.160 --> 00:37:02.230
  • THAT.
  • 00:37:02.230 --> 00:37:03.080
  • IF YOU'RE TRULY BLESSED,
  • 00:37:03.080 --> 00:37:04.230
  • YOU WOULD ACTUALLY BE MORE THAN
  • 00:37:04.230 --> 00:37:06.050
  • A CONQUEROR INSTEAD OF TRYING
  • 00:37:06.050 --> 00:37:07.250
  • TO STRUGGLE THROUGH THESE
  • 00:37:07.250 --> 00:37:08.210
  • SITUATIONS ALL OF THE TIME.
  • 00:37:08.210 --> 00:37:11.110
  • DO ANY OF THOSE QUESTIONS
  • 00:37:11.110 --> 00:37:12.090
  • SOUND FAMILIAR?
  • 00:37:12.090 --> 00:37:13.250
  • [Yes!]
  • 00:37:13.250 --> 00:37:14.290
  • THE NEXT THING THAT THE DEVIL
  • 00:37:14.290 --> 00:37:16.030
  • DID IS HE TEMPTED JESUS
  • 00:37:16.030 --> 00:37:18.060
  • WITH SOMETHING HE COULD DO.
  • 00:37:18.130 --> 00:37:21.130
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:37:21.130 --> 00:37:21.270
  • " IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:37:21.270 --> 00:37:23.130
  • TURN THESE STONES INTO BREAD."
  • 00:37:24.080 --> 00:37:27.080
  • NOW IF THE DEVIL ASKED ME
  • 00:37:27.080 --> 00:37:28.190
  • TO TURN A BOULDER
  • 00:37:28.190 --> 00:37:29.140
  • INTO A KRISPY KREME TRUCK,
  • 00:37:29.140 --> 00:37:31.000
  • I COULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:37:31.000 --> 00:37:32.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:37:32.230 --> 00:37:33.250
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:37:33.250 --> 00:37:35.000
  • WHOSE SPOKEN WORD CREATED
  • 00:37:35.000 --> 00:37:36.200
  • THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH,
  • 00:37:36.200 --> 00:37:37.240
  • YOU CAN LOOK AT A ROCK,
  • 00:37:37.240 --> 00:37:38.280
  • AND SAY, "CROISSANT,"
  • 00:37:38.280 --> 00:37:40.000
  • AND THAT'S WHAT IT'S GOING
  • 00:37:40.000 --> 00:37:40.200
  • TO BE.
  • 00:37:40.200 --> 00:37:42.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:37:42.030 --> 00:37:44.070
  • AND THE MESSAGE IS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:37:44.070 --> 00:37:46.190
  • YOU WILL NEVER BE TEMPTED WITH
  • 00:37:46.190 --> 00:37:48.180
  • SOMETHING THAT YOU CANNOT DO.
  • 00:37:48.200 --> 00:37:51.200
  • YOU WILL ALWAYS BE TEMPTED
  • 00:37:51.200 --> 00:37:53.070
  • WITH SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:37:53.070 --> 00:37:54.220
  • THE POWER TO ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:37:54.280 --> 00:37:57.280
  • NOW HERE'S THE BLESSING
  • 00:37:57.280 --> 00:37:59.030
  • OF THIS TEACHING.
  • 00:37:59.030 --> 00:38:01.160
  • WHEN THE DEVIL TEMPTED
  • 00:38:01.160 --> 00:38:02.140
  • THE SON OF GOD HIMSELF,
  • 00:38:02.140 --> 00:38:03.230
  • THE SON OF GOD DIDN'T LOOK AT
  • 00:38:03.230 --> 00:38:05.010
  • THE DEVIL, AND SAY,
  • 00:38:05.010 --> 00:38:05.250
  • "DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU'RE
  • 00:38:05.250 --> 00:38:06.250
  • MESSING WITH?
  • 00:38:06.250 --> 00:38:08.220
  • YOU KNOW HOW LONG I'VE BEEN
  • 00:38:08.220 --> 00:38:09.280
  • AROUND AND THE THINGS
  • 00:38:09.280 --> 00:38:10.220
  • I HAVE THE POWER TO DO?
  • 00:38:10.220 --> 00:38:12.010
  • DO YOU KNOW WHERE I WAS
  • 00:38:12.010 --> 00:38:13.110
  • IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN?
  • 00:38:13.110 --> 00:38:14.050
  • DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?
  • 00:38:14.050 --> 00:38:15.100
  • DO YOU KNOW WHO I BELONG TO?"
  • 00:38:15.100 --> 00:38:18.040
  • HE DIDN'T GET INTO AN ARGUMENT
  • 00:38:18.040 --> 00:38:20.030
  • OR A DEBATE ABOUT WHO HE WAS
  • 00:38:20.030 --> 00:38:22.030
  • AND WHAT HE HAD THE POWER
  • 00:38:22.030 --> 00:38:22.290
  • TO DO.
  • 00:38:22.290 --> 00:38:23.150
  • WHEN HE WAS TEMPTED
  • 00:38:23.150 --> 00:38:24.180
  • BY THE DEVIL,
  • 00:38:24.180 --> 00:38:25.100
  • WHEN HE WAS PHYSICALLY,
  • 00:38:25.100 --> 00:38:26.180
  • SPIRITUALLY,
  • 00:38:26.180 --> 00:38:27.130
  • AND EMOTIONALLY AT HIS WEAKEST;
  • 00:38:27.130 --> 00:38:29.180
  • HE DID SOMETHING
  • 00:38:29.180 --> 00:38:30.160
  • THAT YOU AND I,
  • 00:38:30.160 --> 00:38:31.240
  • WHEN WE ARE PHYSICALLY,
  • 00:38:31.240 --> 00:38:33.030
  • SPIRITUALLY,
  • 00:38:33.030 --> 00:38:33.270
  • AND EMOTIONALLY AT OUR WEAKEST,
  • 00:38:33.270 --> 00:38:35.190
  • CAN DO.
  • 00:38:35.190 --> 00:38:36.110
  • HE SAID THESE WORDS,
  • 00:38:36.110 --> 00:38:37.250
  • "IT IS WRITTEN."
  • 00:38:38.080 --> 00:38:41.080
  • CHILD OF GOD,
  • 00:38:41.080 --> 00:38:42.040
  • WHEN YOU ARE UNDER ATTACK
  • 00:38:42.040 --> 00:38:44.000
  • BY THE ENEMY,
  • 00:38:44.000 --> 00:38:45.030
  • DON'T GET INTO A FIGHT
  • 00:38:45.030 --> 00:38:46.210
  • THAT YOU CAN'T WIN.
  • 00:38:46.210 --> 00:38:47.280
  • RUN TO THE SOURCE THAT WINS
  • 00:38:47.280 --> 00:38:50.000
  • EVERY TIME,
  • 00:38:50.000 --> 00:38:51.010
  • AND DECLARE, "IT IS WRITTEN."
  • 00:38:51.160 --> 00:38:54.160
  • IF YOU'RE IN A BATTLE
  • 00:38:54.160 --> 00:38:55.130
  • FOR YOUR LIFE,

  • IF YOU'RE IN A BATTLE
  • 00:39:03.000 --> 00:39:03.250
  • FOR YOUR FAMILY,

  • "IT IS WRITTEN."
  • 00:39:05.000 --> 00:39:07.080
  • WHEN YOU BEGIN TO SPEAK
  • 00:39:07.080 --> 00:39:09.040

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:40:22.160 --> 00:40:24.160
  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: YOU'VE HEARD
  • 00:40:24.160 --> 00:40:27.020
  • THE STORY THAT PASTOR HAS TOLD
  • 00:40:27.020 --> 00:40:28.240
  • MANY TIMES OF THE MAN
  • 00:40:28.240 --> 00:40:30.110
  • WHO WAS DEMON POSSESSED,
  • 00:40:30.110 --> 00:40:31.200
  • CAME INTO HIS CHURCH,
  • 00:40:31.200 --> 00:40:33.150
  • AND TRIED TO SHOOT HIM.
  • 00:40:33.150 --> 00:40:34.260
  • HAVE YOU HEARD THAT STORY?
  • 00:40:34.260 --> 00:40:36.130
  • IF NOT, GOOGLE IT.
  • 00:40:36.130 --> 00:40:37.100
  • NO, I'M KIDDING.
  • 00:40:37.100 --> 00:40:38.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:40:38.170 --> 00:40:40.230
  • BUT HERE IS SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:40:40.230 --> 00:40:42.000
  • STORY THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:40:42.000 --> 00:40:43.020
  • THAT APPLIES TO THIS SITUATION
  • 00:40:43.020 --> 00:40:45.090
  • OF THE WRITTEN,
  • 00:40:45.090 --> 00:40:46.150
  • THE SPOKEN,
  • 00:40:46.150 --> 00:40:47.200
  • AND THE LIVING WORD.
  • 00:40:47.200 --> 00:40:49.200
  • PASTOR WAS TEACHING THE
  • 00:40:49.200 --> 00:40:50.270
  • CONGREGATION AT THE TIME ABOUT
  • 00:40:50.270 --> 00:40:53.090
  • HOW JESUS DEALT WITH DEMONS.
  • 00:40:53.090 --> 00:40:55.280
  • AND IN THE EARLY 70'S,
  • 00:40:55.280 --> 00:40:57.080
  • CHURCHES TEACHING ABOUT
  • 00:40:57.080 --> 00:40:58.170
  • DELIVERANCE FROM DEMONS
  • 00:40:58.170 --> 00:40:59.190
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:40:59.190 --> 00:41:00.180
  • WAS NOT VERY COMMON.
  • 00:41:00.180 --> 00:41:02.160
  • NOW YOU CAN FIND DEMONS
  • 00:41:02.160 --> 00:41:03.200
  • ALL OVER THE PLACE.
  • 00:41:03.200 --> 00:41:04.160
  • BUT BACK THEN,
  • 00:41:04.160 --> 00:41:05.010
  • THEY WERE KIND OF RARE.
  • 00:41:05.010 --> 00:41:06.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:41:06.200 --> 00:41:09.000
  • AND SO WHILE HE WAS PREPARING
  • 00:41:09.000 --> 00:41:10.120
  • FOR THIS SERIES,
  • 00:41:10.120 --> 00:41:11.080
  • PASTOR IS IN PRAYER.
  • 00:41:11.080 --> 00:41:13.230
  • AND HE FEELS THE LORD TELL HIM,
  • 00:41:13.230 --> 00:41:16.100
  • "YOU WILL BE ATTACKED,
  • 00:41:16.100 --> 00:41:19.050
  • BUT YOU WILL NOT BE HARMED."
  • 00:41:19.050 --> 00:41:22.040
  • AND IMMEDIATELY,
  • 00:41:22.040 --> 00:41:23.050
  • HE THINKS THAT THE ATTACK
  • 00:41:23.050 --> 00:41:24.270
  • IS A SPIRITUAL ATTACK.
  • 00:41:24.270 --> 00:41:26.090
  • HE THINKS THAT THE ATTACK
  • 00:41:26.090 --> 00:41:27.230
  • IS GOING TO BE CRITICISM
  • 00:41:27.230 --> 00:41:29.000
  • FROM OTHER PASTORS.
  • 00:41:29.000 --> 00:41:30.080
  • HE THINKS THAT THE ATTACK IS
  • 00:41:30.080 --> 00:41:31.180
  • GOING TO BE FROM DENOMINATIONS
  • 00:41:31.180 --> 00:41:33.070
  • THAT DON'T SUPPORT
  • 00:41:33.070 --> 00:41:34.010
  • WHAT HE'S TEACHING.
  • 00:41:34.010 --> 00:41:35.010
  • SO HE JUST CONSIDERS THAT
  • 00:41:35.010 --> 00:41:36.050
  • A WORD FROM THE LORD AND HE
  • 00:41:36.050 --> 00:41:37.070
  • PRESSES ON WITH THE TEACHING.
  • 00:41:37.070 --> 00:41:39.270
  • NOW IN THE PROCESS
  • 00:41:39.270 --> 00:41:40.240
  • OF THIS SITUATION,
  • 00:41:40.240 --> 00:41:42.050
  • IT BECOMES APPARENT THAT THERE
  • 00:41:42.050 --> 00:41:43.150
  • IS NOT A SPIRITUAL ATTACK,
  • 00:41:43.150 --> 00:41:45.190
  • BUT A VERY REAL PHYSICAL
  • 00:41:45.190 --> 00:41:46.220
  • ATTACK.
  • 00:41:46.220 --> 00:41:48.200
  • AND THAT VERY REAL
  • 00:41:48.200 --> 00:41:49.110
  • PHYSICAL ATTACK APPEARED
  • 00:41:49.110 --> 00:41:50.210
  • WHEN AN INDIVIDUAL,
  • 00:41:50.210 --> 00:41:51.190
  • DEMON POSSESSED,
  • 00:41:51.190 --> 00:41:52.200
  • COMES INTO HIS CHURCH WITH
  • 00:41:52.200 --> 00:41:53.280
  • THE INTENTION OF SHOOTING HIM.
  • 00:41:53.280 --> 00:41:55.160
  • HE STANDS AT A DISTANCE
  • 00:41:55.160 --> 00:41:57.030
  • OF ABOUT EIGHT FEET
  • 00:41:57.030 --> 00:41:58.090
  • WITH A REVOLVER.
  • 00:41:58.090 --> 00:41:59.080
  • AND HE SAYS TO PASTOR,
  • 00:41:59.080 --> 00:42:01.010
  • "GET ON YOUR KNEES
  • 00:42:01.010 --> 00:42:01.270
  • AND BEG FOR YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:42:01.270 --> 00:42:03.030
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT PASTOR HEARD
  • 00:42:03.030 --> 00:42:05.080
  • IN HIS SPIRIT?
  • 00:42:05.080 --> 00:42:07.250
  • HE HEARD,
  • 00:42:07.250 --> 00:42:08.150
  • "YOU WILL BE ATTACKED
  • 00:42:08.150 --> 00:42:10.290
  • BUT YOU WILL NOT BE HARMED."
  • 00:42:10.290 --> 00:42:13.230
  • NOW HOW DOES THAT LINE UP
  • 00:42:13.230 --> 00:42:14.220
  • WITH THIS SITUATION?
  • 00:42:14.220 --> 00:42:16.000
  • THAT MAN SAID,
  • 00:42:16.000 --> 00:42:16.280
  • "I HAVE A GUN IN MY HAND."
  • 00:42:16.280 --> 00:42:18.090
  • PASTOR SAID,
  • 00:42:18.090 --> 00:42:19.020
  • "I HAVE A BIBLE IN MINE."
  • 00:42:19.020 --> 00:42:21.230
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:42:21.230 --> 00:42:23.220
  • "NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME
  • 00:42:24.040 --> 00:42:27.040
  • SHOULD PROSPER."
  • 00:42:27.040 --> 00:42:28.150
  • WHERE DID HE FIND THAT?
  • 00:42:28.150 --> 00:42:30.280
  • IN THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:42:30.280 --> 00:42:33.080
  • AND WHENEVER HE SAID IT,
  • 00:42:33.080 --> 00:42:34.200
  • WHAT DID IT BECOME?
  • 00:42:34.200 --> 00:42:36.090
  • THE SPOKEN WORD.
  • 00:42:36.090 --> 00:42:38.080
  • AND WHENEVER THE GUN STARTED
  • 00:42:38.080 --> 00:42:39.240
  • GOING OFF AND THE BULLETS
  • 00:42:39.240 --> 00:42:41.040
  • MISSED RIGHT AND LEFT,
  • 00:42:41.040 --> 00:42:42.150
  • WHAT WAS IT?
  • 00:42:42.150 --> 00:42:43.270
  • THE LIVING WORD.
  • 00:42:43.270 --> 00:42:45.180
  • CHILD OF GOD,
  • 00:42:45.180 --> 00:42:46.180
  • "MY WORD SHALL NOT RETURN
  • 00:42:46.180 --> 00:42:48.170
  • TO ME VOID.
  • 00:42:48.170 --> 00:42:49.210
  • BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH EVERY
  • 00:42:49.210 --> 00:42:51.190
  • PURPOSE FOR WHICH I SENT IT."
  • 00:42:51.190 --> 00:42:53.180
  • GOD HAS GIVEN YOU
  • 00:42:53.180 --> 00:42:54.280
  • A WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:42:54.280 --> 00:42:56.130
  • ALLOW IT TO BECOME IN YOU
  • 00:42:56.130 --> 00:42:58.080
  • A SPOKEN WORD,
  • 00:42:58.080 --> 00:42:59.220
  • SO THAT FROM THAT SPOKEN WORD,
  • 00:42:59.220 --> 00:43:01.150
  • YOU CAN WALK IN THE LIVING
  • 00:43:01.150 --> 00:43:02.290
  • PROMISES OF GOD.
  • 00:43:02.290 --> 00:43:04.100
  • BECAUSE IF GOD BE FOR YOU,
  • 00:43:04.100 --> 00:43:06.220
  • WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU?
  • 00:43:06.220 --> 00:43:09.150
  • GIVE THE LORD A HANDCLAP
  • 00:43:09.150 --> 00:43:10.270
  • OF PRAISE!
  • 00:43:10.270 --> 00:43:12.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:43:15.200 --> 00:43:18.200
  • NOW WHAT IS GOD INTERESTED IN
  • 00:43:18.200 --> 00:43:20.160
  • WHEN IT COMES TO OUR GROWTH?
  • 00:43:20.160 --> 00:43:23.050
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:43:23.050 --> 00:43:24.160
  • "YOU DIDN'T CHOOSE ME.
  • 00:43:24.160 --> 00:43:25.090
  • I CHOSE YOU;
  • 00:43:25.090 --> 00:43:26.170
  • THAT YOU MIGHT PRODUCE --"
  • 00:43:26.170 --> 00:43:27.270
  • WHAT?
  • 00:43:27.270 --> 00:43:28.210
  • [Fruit!]
  • 00:43:28.210 --> 00:43:30.210
  • DOES THIS LOOK FRUITFUL
  • 00:43:30.210 --> 00:43:31.200
  • TO YOU?
  • 00:43:31.200 --> 00:43:32.210
  • [No.]
  • 00:43:32.210 --> 00:43:34.020
  • BUT THIS IS WHAT A LOT
  • 00:43:34.020 --> 00:43:34.260
  • OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:43:34.260 --> 00:43:35.130
  • WHO GO TO CHURCH,
  • 00:43:35.130 --> 00:43:36.020
  • PRODUCE FOR GOD.
  • 00:43:36.020 --> 00:43:38.090
  • "WELL I DIDN'T LIKE THE SONGS."
  • 00:43:38.090 --> 00:43:40.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:40.160 --> 00:43:41.240
  • "AND I DON'T LIKE THE USHER."
  • 00:43:41.240 --> 00:43:43.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:43.280 --> 00:43:45.180
  • "AND I WISH THEY'D DO IT
  • 00:43:45.180 --> 00:43:46.240
  • DIFFERENT."
  • 00:43:46.240 --> 00:43:48.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:48.050 --> 00:43:49.050
  • "AND I BELIEVE THAT IF GOD WAS
  • 00:43:49.050 --> 00:43:50.290
  • REALLY AT WORK IN THAT CHURCH,
  • 00:43:50.290 --> 00:43:52.100
  • WE'D HAVE MORE SIGNS
  • 00:43:52.100 --> 00:43:53.100
  • AND WONDERS."
  • 00:43:53.100 --> 00:43:54.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:54.250 --> 00:43:55.150
  • "AND I DON'T AGREE
  • 00:43:55.150 --> 00:43:56.070
  • WITH EVERYTHING THEY SAY
  • 00:43:56.070 --> 00:43:57.100
  • DOWN THERE."
  • 00:43:57.100 --> 00:43:58.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:58.260 --> 00:43:59.210
  • IS THAT FRUITFUL?
  • 00:43:59.210 --> 00:44:01.070
  • [No!]
  • 00:44:01.070 --> 00:44:03.080
  • BUT THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:44:03.080 --> 00:44:04.050
  • THAT THAT'S WHAT THEY UTILIZE
  • 00:44:04.050 --> 00:44:05.120
  • THE WORD OF GOD TO DO.
  • 00:44:05.120 --> 00:44:08.100
  • THEY WANT TO COME IN
  • 00:44:08.100 --> 00:44:08.290
  • AND RECEIVE.
  • 00:44:08.290 --> 00:44:09.260
  • AND RATHER THAN BELIEVE
  • 00:44:09.260 --> 00:44:10.280
  • IN FAITH,
  • 00:44:10.280 --> 00:44:12.130
  • THEY WANT TO BEHAVE LIKE THIS.
  • 00:44:12.180 --> 00:44:15.180
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:44:15.180 --> 00:44:16.010
  • THAT GOD HAS SOME HEARING AIDS.
  • 00:44:16.010 --> 00:44:18.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:18.150 --> 00:44:20.110
  • BECAUSE FAITH COMETH BY HEARING
  • 00:44:20.110 --> 00:44:21.250
  • AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:44:21.250 --> 00:44:24.220
  • GOD DOESN'T WANT TO SEE
  • 00:44:24.220 --> 00:44:25.220
  • JUST A BUNCH OF DRIED UP LEAVES
  • 00:44:25.220 --> 00:44:27.050
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:44:27.050 --> 00:44:27.230
  • HE WANTS TO SEE FRUIT
  • 00:44:27.230 --> 00:44:29.140
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:44:29.140 --> 00:44:31.020
  • HE WANTS TO SEE PEOPLE
  • 00:44:31.020 --> 00:44:32.040
  • THAT NEEDED A TOUCH,
  • 00:44:32.040 --> 00:44:33.100
  • AND HE USED YOU TO TOUCH THEM.
  • 00:44:33.100 --> 00:44:35.170
  • HE WANTS TO SEE SOULS
  • 00:44:35.170 --> 00:44:36.190
  • THAT WERE LOST,
  • 00:44:36.190 --> 00:44:37.090
  • AND HE USED YOU TO BRING THEM
  • 00:44:37.090 --> 00:44:38.240
  • TO CHRIST.
  • 00:44:38.240 --> 00:44:40.010
  • HE WANTS TO SEE THOSE
  • 00:44:40.010 --> 00:44:40.240
  • WHO ARE WEAK MADE STRONGER,
  • 00:44:40.240 --> 00:44:42.090
  • BECAUSE THEY HEARD THE
  • 00:44:42.090 --> 00:44:43.020
  • TESTIMONY OF WHAT GOD HAS DONE
  • 00:44:43.020 --> 00:44:44.210
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:44:44.210 --> 00:44:45.160
  • AND YOU DEMONSTRATED
  • 00:44:45.160 --> 00:44:46.160
  • WHAT REVELATION SAID;
  • 00:44:46.160 --> 00:44:47.180
  • THAT WE'VE OVERCOME HIM
  • 00:44:47.180 --> 00:44:48.210
  • BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
  • 00:44:48.210 --> 00:44:49.240
  • AND THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY.
  • 00:44:49.240 --> 00:44:52.200
  • DON'T LET YOUR TESTIMONY BE,
  • 00:44:52.200 --> 00:44:54.090
  • "WHEN WE ALL GET TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:44:54.090 --> 00:44:55.210
  • WHAT COMPLAINING
  • 00:44:55.210 --> 00:44:56.190
  • THERE WILL BE."
  • 00:44:56.190 --> 00:44:58.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:58.110 --> 00:45:00.280
  • AND SO WHEN GOD,
  • 00:45:00.280 --> 00:45:02.000
  • THE VINE DRESSER,
  • 00:45:02.000 --> 00:45:02.200
  • COMES BY, AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:45:02.200 --> 00:45:04.000
  • "YOU'VE BEEN SITTING
  • 00:45:04.000 --> 00:45:04.200
  • IN THAT CHURCH FOR 25 YEARS,
  • 00:45:04.200 --> 00:45:07.000
  • AND ALL YOU'VE EVER PRODUCED
  • 00:45:07.000 --> 00:45:08.040
  • IS THIS."
  • 00:45:08.040 --> 00:45:10.260
  • JESUS SAID, IN JOHN 15,
  • 00:45:10.260 --> 00:45:13.250
  • THAT EVERY BRANCH
  • 00:45:13.250 --> 00:45:15.000
  • THAT IS IN HIM
  • 00:45:15.000 --> 00:45:16.030

  • HE PRUNES.
  • 00:45:18.120 --> 00:45:21.100
  • SO YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU
  • 00:45:21.100 --> 00:45:22.220
  • ARE IN ONE OF TWO STATES.
  • 00:45:22.220 --> 00:45:24.130

  • WHY?
  • 00:45:30.150 --> 00:45:31.260
  • THAT YOU MIGHT BEAR FRUIT.
  • 00:45:33.010 --> 00:45:36.010
  • GOD LOOKS AT YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:45:36.010 --> 00:45:37.040

  • 00:45:37.040 --> 00:45:38.020
  • JUST GENTLE TOUCHES,

  • TO DO FOR HIM.
  • 00:45:46.250 --> 00:45:48.240
  • WHEN PASTOR HAGEE GETS UP

  • "YES, I'M TALKING TO YOU;
  • 00:45:51.080 --> 00:45:52.260
  • YOU NEED TO TITHE."
  • 00:45:53.060 --> 00:45:56.060
  • THAT'S JUST HIS WAY OF PRUNING
  • 00:45:56.060 --> 00:45:57.230
  • YOU SO THAT HE CAN MAKE ROOM
  • 00:45:57.230 --> 00:45:59.150
  • FOR FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:45:59.150 --> 00:46:02.040
  • YOU WALK OUT OF THERE,
  • 00:46:02.040 --> 00:46:02.290
  • AND YOU SAY,
  • 00:46:02.290 --> 00:46:03.150
  • "WELL, I DON'T KNOW THAT GOD
  • 00:46:03.150 --> 00:46:04.080
  • WAS REALLY TALKING TO ME."
  • 00:46:04.080 --> 00:46:06.190
  • GOD SAYS,
  • 00:46:06.190 --> 00:46:07.010
  • "LOOK, MAN; I CAN TALK GENTLE
  • 00:46:08.060 --> 00:46:11.060
  • OR I CAN TALK TOUGH."
  • 00:46:11.070 --> 00:46:14.070
  • HE'LL SOMETIMES USE A SERMON.
  • 00:46:14.070 --> 00:46:17.050
  • AND OTHER TIMES,
  • 00:46:17.050 --> 00:46:17.230
  • HE'LL USE A STORM.
  • 00:46:18.120 --> 00:46:21.120
  • HE SAYS, "HEY,
