  • "WHAT SHALL IT PROFIT A MAN
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:36.070
  • IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD,"
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:38.100

  • 00:00:51.190 --> 00:00:53.050

  • A CROP OF GRAIN IS SAVED
  • 00:00:58.110 --> 00:01:00.160

  • THE WORLD NEEDS TO BE SAVED.
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:23.260
  • IT NEEDS SAVING
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:25.000
  • BECAUSE WE'VE CREATED ENOUGH
  • 00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:27.030
  • ATOMIC ENERGY TO KILL EVERYONE
  • 00:01:27.030 --> 00:01:29.080

  • IS SO SEVERE --
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:02.080
  • LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:03.210
  • -- THAT IN THE LAST TWO YEARS,

  • FROM OVERDOSE OF DRUGS

  • THAT THE LIFE EXPECTANCY
  • 00:02:10.190 --> 00:02:12.220
  • OF EVERY AMERICAN

  • FATHERS ARE ABANDONING
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:25.140
  • THEIR CHILDREN IN MAD PURSUIT
  • 00:02:25.140 --> 00:02:27.190
  • TO FIND THE GOD OF SELF.
  • 00:02:27.190 --> 00:02:29.220
  • WASHINGTON HAS BECOME
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.080
  • A POLITICAL MAD HOUSE OF LIARS,
  • 00:02:32.230 --> 00:02:35.230
  • LUNATICS, AND LEAKERS.
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:38.150
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:44.210

  • 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:51.270
  • I DIDN'T RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:02:51.270 --> 00:02:52.230
  • I READ ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:02:52.230 --> 00:02:53.240
  • ENCOURAGING THINGS I HAVE READ
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:55.280
  • IN MONTHS ON THE INTERNET.
  • 00:02:56.010 --> 00:02:59.010
  • IT'S THE CHAIRMAN OF
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:03:00.030
  • THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL PARTY,

  • TO CHURCH,
  • 00:03:06.060 --> 00:03:06.260
  • GETTING THEIR POLITICAL

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:21.260
  • IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM,
  • 00:03:21.260 --> 00:03:23.150
  • THE POINT IS,
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:24.220
  • DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT THE WORD
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:26.160
  • "SAVED" MEANS?
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:29.020
  • THE PHILIPPIAN JAILER
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:30.060
  • ASKED PAUL AND SILAS,
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:31.290

  • "WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?"
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:38.120
  • THE QUESTION MUST BE ANSWERED,
  • 00:03:38.120 --> 00:03:39.280
  • BECAUSE YOUR SOUL IS THE MOST
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:42.050
  • PRECIOUS THING THAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:45.100
  • IT IS IMMORTAL.
  • 00:03:45.100 --> 00:03:47.100
  • THERE WAS A DAY
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:48.040
  • WHEN YOU WERE NOT,
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:49.010
  • BUT THERE WILL NEVER BE A DAY
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:50.130
  • WHEN YOU WILL NOT BE.
  • 00:03:50.130 --> 00:03:52.260
  • THE DAY THAT ALEXANDER

  • THE GREAT RULED THE WORLD,
  • 00:03:54.050 --> 00:03:55.200
  • YOU WERE NOT.
  • 00:03:55.200 --> 00:03:57.010
  • THE DAY THAT THE CAESARS
  • 00:03:57.010 --> 00:03:58.070
  • RULED ROME,
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:03:59.140
  • YOU WERE NOT.
  • 00:03:59.140 --> 00:04:01.100
  • THE DAY THAT COLUMBUS
  • 00:04:01.100 --> 00:04:02.140
  • DISCOVERED AMERICA,
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:03.170
  • YOU WERE NOT.
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:05.070
  • THE DAY THE FOUNDING FATHERS
  • 00:04:05.070 --> 00:04:07.010
  • DRAFTED THE CONSTITUTION
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:08.210
  • OF THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:10.010
  • GUARANTEEING LIFE, LIBERTY,
  • 00:04:10.010 --> 00:04:11.190
  • AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:12.260
  • IN 1776,
  • 00:04:12.260 --> 00:04:14.220
  • YOU WERE NOT.
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:16.100
  • BUT THERE WILL NEVER BE A DAY
  • 00:04:16.100 --> 00:04:18.160
  • WHEN YOU WILL NOT
  • 00:04:18.160 --> 00:04:19.210
  • BE SOMEWHERE ALIVE.
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:23.000
  • TEN MILLION YEARS FROM NOW,
  • 00:04:23.000 --> 00:04:25.010
  • 50 MILLION YEARS FROM NOW.
  • 00:04:25.010 --> 00:04:27.100
  • A HUNDRED MILLION YEARS
  • 00:04:27.100 --> 00:04:28.220
  • FROM NOW,

  • FOR ALL ETERNITY,
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:31.240
  • YOU ARE ALL GOING TO BE ALIVE.
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:34.100
  • THE QUESTION IS, WHERE?
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:37.230
  • AND ONLY YOU CAN MAKE
  • 00:04:37.230 --> 00:04:39.280
  • A DECISION THAT WILL MAKE
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:41.290
  • THAT QUESTION BEARABLE.
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:45.090
  • SO CONSIDER THE VALUE
  • 00:04:45.090 --> 00:04:46.140
  • OF YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:04:46.140 --> 00:04:48.080
  • THE VALUE OF YOUR SOUL BROUGHT
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.030
  • JESUS CHRIST FROM THE BALCONIES
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:51.250
  • OF HEAVEN TO BE BORN A BABE
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:55.090
  • IN BETHLEHEM'S MANGER,
  • 00:04:55.090 --> 00:04:58.030
  • TO BE FOLLOWED BY 12 DISCIPLES.
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:02.100
  • THE CROWNED PRINCE OF HEAVEN
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:03.270
  • LEFT THE SPLENDOR OF GLORY
  • 00:05:03.270 --> 00:05:05.150
  • TO LIVE IN THAT STINKING CAVE
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:07.290
  • OF COWS AND DONKEYS AND GOATS.
  • 00:05:07.290 --> 00:05:10.170
  • THE VALUE OF YOUR SOUL FORCED
  • 00:05:10.170 --> 00:05:12.120
  • HIM TO ALLOW HEROD'S MEN OF WAR
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:14.150
  • TO SPIT ON HIM,
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:15.230
  • TO SLAP HIS FACE,
  • 00:05:15.230 --> 00:05:17.150
  • AND TO PLACE A PURPLE ROBE
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:19.030
  • ON HIS BACK,
  • 00:05:19.030 --> 00:05:20.110
  • AND MOCKED HIM.
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:22.150
  • THE CROWN OF THORNS WAS PUT
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:24.010
  • ON HIS HEAD, SAYING,
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:26.040
  • "HAIL, KING TO THE JEWS."
  • 00:05:27.030 --> 00:05:30.030
  • THE CREATOR LAID DOWN
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:31.170
  • ON THE CROSS
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:33.050
  • AND ALLOWED THE CREATED
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:34.210
  • TO NAIL HIS HANDS AND FEET
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.250
  • TO THAT CROSS.
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:38.270
  • THINK OF THE POWER HE HAD.
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:41.270
  • ONE WORD AND A THOUSAND ANGELS
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:45.000
  • WOULD HAVE RIPPED THAT MOUNTAIN
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.180
  • BY THE ROOTS AND FLUNG IT
  • 00:05:46.180 --> 00:05:48.080
  • INTO THE GATES OF HELL!
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:51.070
  • BUT HE LAID THERE AND LET THEM
  • 00:05:51.070 --> 00:05:53.090
  • NAIL HIM THERE FOR YOU,
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:56.060
  • AND FOR YOU,
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:57.200
  • AND FOR YOU,
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:05:59.110
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:00.230
  • FOR YOU,
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:02.050
  • FOR YOU,

  • THIS TELEVISION PROGRAM,
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:07.030
  • BECAUSE THAT'S HOW PRECIOUS
  • 00:06:07.030 --> 00:06:09.290
  • YOUR SOUL HAPPENS TO BE.
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:13.220
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:06:13.220 --> 00:06:14.270
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:22.130
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:23.020
  • "FOR THIS CAUSE,
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:23.240
  • CAME CHRIST INTO THE WORLD,
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:25.190
  • TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF SATAN."
  • 00:06:25.270 --> 00:06:28.270
  • "JESUS CHRIST CAME TO SEEK AND
  • 00:06:28.270 --> 00:06:31.240
  • TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST."
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:34.270
  • THE LAST COMMAND HE GAVE
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:36.050
  • TO THE CHURCH WAS,
  • 00:06:36.050 --> 00:06:37.270
  • "GO INTO ALL THE WORLD
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:39.030
  • AND PREACH THE GOSPEL
  • 00:06:39.030 --> 00:06:40.020
  • TO EVERY CREATURE."
  • 00:06:40.020 --> 00:06:42.020
  • AND IF I COULD TAKE A SIDEBAR
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:43.160
  • FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES,
  • 00:06:43.160 --> 00:06:45.160
  • IT WOULD BE GOOD TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:47.040
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE THAT HE WAS
  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:48.120
  • TALKING ABOUT GENTILES.
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:50.190
  • RECOGNIZE THAT A JEWISH RABBI
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:53.030
  • WAS SPEAKING TO 12 JEWISH
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:54.190
  • FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:06:55.250
  • "CREATURES" WERE GENTILE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:58.130
  • WHO HAD NEVER HEARD THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:07:00.110
  • AND THEY BROUGHT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:01.200
  • TO US,
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:02.170
  • AND THE GREAT COMMISSION
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:03.170
  • WAS FULFILLED.
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:05.080
  • HE SAID, GO TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:06.180
  • GO TO SAMARIA,
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:07.270
  • GO TO THE UTTERMOST PARTS
  • 00:07:07.270 --> 00:07:09.100
  • OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:10.130
  • THE REASON I CAME TO EARTH,
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:12.000
  • THE REASON I WAS CRUCIFIED,
  • 00:07:12.000 --> 00:07:14.140
  • IS SO THAT YOU CAN WIN
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:15.180
  • THE LOST.
  • 00:07:15.180 --> 00:07:16.220
  • NOTHING IS AS PRECIOUS
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:18.130
  • AS A SOUL.
  • 00:07:18.130 --> 00:07:19.200
  • "DON'T ASK PEOPLE TO BELIEVE
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:21.020
  • WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
  • 00:07:21.020 --> 00:07:22.110
  • ASK PEOPLE TO BELIEVE ON ME."
  • 00:07:22.110 --> 00:07:24.270
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:26.230
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:27.250
  • IF WE COULD GET BACK TO
  • 00:07:27.250 --> 00:07:28.260
  • THAT SIMPLE THING,
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:30.070
  • WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:31.140
  • THIS WOULD BE.
  • 00:07:31.140 --> 00:07:32.260
  • OUR OBJECTIVE ON THIS PLANET
  • 00:07:32.260 --> 00:07:35.030
  • IS TO WIN THE LOST
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:37.120
  • TO JESUS CHRIST!
  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:39.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:44.190
  • DON'T ASK PEOPLE TO BELIEVE
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:46.020
  • WHAT YOU BELIEVE,
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:47.000
  • BECAUSE SOME OF YOU
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:47.260
  • DON'T EVEN KNOW.
  • 00:07:47.260 --> 00:07:50.110
  • ASK THEM TO BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 00:07:50.110 --> 00:07:52.100
  • HE IS THE SHEPHERD.
  • 00:07:52.100 --> 00:07:53.190
  • WE ARE THE SHEEP.
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:54.230
  • HE IS THE POTTER.
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:55.240
  • WE ARE THE CLAY.
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:57.030
  • HE IS THE CREATOR.
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:58.160
  • WE ARE THE CREATED.
  • 00:07:58.160 --> 00:08:00.050
  • HE IS THE MASTER OF WIND
  • 00:08:00.050 --> 00:08:02.010
  • AND WAVE.
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:02.200
  • HE IS THE LION OF THE TRIBE
  • 00:08:02.200 --> 00:08:04.250
  • OF JUDAH!
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:05.140
  • HE IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:07.120
  • HE IS THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:09.050
  • THAT TAKETH AWAY THE SINS
  • 00:08:09.050 --> 00:08:10.120
  • OF THE WORLD!
  • 00:08:10.120 --> 00:08:11.130
  • HE IS THE REDEEMER!
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:13.010
  • HE IS WONDERFUL,
  • 00:08:13.010 --> 00:08:14.090
  • COUNSELOR,
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:15.070
  • THE MIGHTY GOD,
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:16.160
  • THE EVERLASTING FATHER,
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:18.080
  • AND PRINCE OF PEACE!
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:19.280
  • GIVE HIM HIGHEST PRAISE
  • 00:08:19.280 --> 00:08:21.170
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
  • 00:08:21.170 --> 00:08:23.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:28.210
  • ARE WE REALLY CHRISTIANS?
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:31.190
  • DO WE REALLY KNOW CHRIST?
  • 00:08:31.200 --> 00:08:34.200
  • DO WE REALLY SERVE HIM,
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:36.120
  • LOVE HIM,
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:37.040
  • OBEY HIM
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:37.280
  • ABOVE ALL ELSE?
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:40.160
  • IS HE IS LORD OF YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:08:40.160 --> 00:08:43.040
  • OR IS HE A RELIGIOUS BUTLER
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:45.280
  • THAT YOU SEND RUNNING
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:47.160
  • FOR WHAT YOU NEED IN YOUR DAY
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:49.130
  • OF CRISIS?
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:50.110
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING;
  • 00:08:50.110 --> 00:08:51.070
  • JESUS CHRIST DOES NOT OPERATE
  • 00:08:51.070 --> 00:08:53.030
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:08:54.130
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:08:54.130 --> 00:08:55.230
  • ARE YOU SAVED?
  • 00:08:55.230 --> 00:08:57.120
  • WHEN AND WHERE DID YOU MAKE
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:08:58.100
  • THAT DECISION?
  • 00:08:58.100 --> 00:08:59.250
  • BECAUSE IF SOMETHING OF THAT
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:01.160
  • MAGNITUDE HAPPENED TO YOU,
  • 00:09:01.160 --> 00:09:03.090
  • YOU'D KNOW WHEN IT HAPPENED.
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:06.190
  • SALVATION IS NOT CHURCH
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:07.250
  • MEMBERSHIP.
  • 00:09:07.250 --> 00:09:09.080
  • GOING TO CHURCH DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:10.140
  • YOU A CHRISTIAN ANY MORE THAN
  • 00:09:10.140 --> 00:09:12.230
  • PUSHING A WHEELBARROW THROUGH
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:15.030
  • THE GENERAL MOTORS ASSEMBLY
  • 00:09:15.030 --> 00:09:17.080
  • LINE WILL TRANSFORM THAT
  • 00:09:17.080 --> 00:09:19.120
  • WHEEL BARREL INTO A CADILLAC.
  • 00:09:21.080 --> 00:09:24.080
  • THE CHURCH IS THE HOUSE
  • 00:09:24.080 --> 00:09:26.050
  • OF THE SAVED.
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:27.190
  • IT IS NOT THE SAVIOR.
  • 00:09:27.190 --> 00:09:30.160
  • HEAR THAT.
  • 00:09:30.160 --> 00:09:32.010
  • THIS IS WHERE THE REDEEMED
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:33.100
  • COME.
  • 00:09:33.100 --> 00:09:34.110
  • THE CHURCH DOES NOT SAVE YOU;
  • 00:09:34.180 --> 00:09:37.180
  • JESUS SAVES YOU.
  • 00:09:37.180 --> 00:09:40.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:48.080
  • I THINK OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:50.080
  • IN THIS WAY.
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:50.250
  • MY UNCLE IN THE SECOND WORLD
  • 00:09:50.250 --> 00:09:52.050
  • WAR WAS A COMBAT PILOT.
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:53.240
  • HE WAS IN THE ARMY AIR CORPS.
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:55.180
  • THAT'S BEFORE THERE WAS
  • 00:09:55.180 --> 00:09:56.160
  • AN AIR FORCE.
  • 00:09:56.160 --> 00:09:58.170
  • AND WHEN HE RETURNED HOME,
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:09:59.240
  • WE WOULD SIT AROUND
  • 00:09:59.240 --> 00:10:00.210
  • THE FIREPLACE AND HE WOULD TALK
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:02.010
  • ABOUT HIS WAR EXPERIENCES.
  • 00:10:02.010 --> 00:10:04.140
  • AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU,
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:05.090
  • WHEN HE STARTED TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:07.020
  • DOG FIGHTS IN THE AIR,
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:08.140
  • HIS EYES WERE LITERALLY
  • 00:10:08.140 --> 00:10:09.290
  • GLOWING.
  • 00:10:09.290 --> 00:10:10.170
  • HE ENJOYED IT.
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:13.100
  • DURING THE WAR, HE WOULD SAY,
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:15.030
  • "OUR GREAT AIRCRAFT CARRIERS
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:17.090
  • WOULD LOAD PLANES WITH FUEL
  • 00:10:17.090 --> 00:10:19.040
  • AND AMMUNITION.
  • 00:10:19.040 --> 00:10:20.230
  • AND THEY WOULD FLY
  • 00:10:20.230 --> 00:10:21.200
  • OFF THE BACK,
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:23.090
  • OFF THE DECK OF THAT CARRIER
  • 00:10:23.120 --> 00:10:26.120
  • TO FIND ENEMY
  • 00:10:26.120 --> 00:10:27.170
  • AND GET INVOLVED
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:28.150
  • IN WHAT THEY CALLED
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:29.050
  • "A DOG FIGHT."
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:30.270
  • THEY WOULD DROP THEIR BOMBS.
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:32.090
  • THEY WOULD FIRE
  • 00:10:32.090 --> 00:10:33.000
  • THEIR MACHINE GUNS,
  • 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:34.220
  • AND THEN FLY BACK
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:35.250
  • TO THE CARRIER FOR MORE FUEL
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:37.200
  • AND AMMUNITION,
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:39.070
  • AND THEN GO BACK TO THE FIGHT
  • 00:10:39.070 --> 00:10:40.220
  • AGAIN.
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:42.120
  • THE CHURCH IS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:42.120 --> 00:10:44.080
  • THE CHURCH IS LIKE
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:45.020
  • THAT CARRIER.
  • 00:10:45.020 --> 00:10:46.190
  • WE COME TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY
  • 00:10:46.190 --> 00:10:48.110
  • TO FIND NEW SPIRITUAL STRENGTH
  • 00:10:48.110 --> 00:10:50.230
  • AND NEW SPIRITUAL FIRE POWER.
  • 00:10:50.230 --> 00:10:53.030
  • AND THEN WE GO OUT AND ENGAGE
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:55.110
  • THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:56.130
  • AND THE DEVIL,
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:10:57.070
  • TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION
  • 00:10:57.070 --> 00:10:58.160
  • OF CHRIST.
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:10:59.240
  • SAINT PAUL SAID,
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:00.210
  • "FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
  • 00:11:00.210 --> 00:11:01.240
  • OF FAITH."
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:02.290
  • SAINT PAUL SAID,
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:04.040
  • "ENDURE HARDNESS
  • 00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:05.170
  • AS A GOOD SOLDIER."
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:07.230
  • SAINT PAUL WAS A PERSON WHO
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:09.250
  • UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE AT WAR
  • 00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:13.040
  • WITH THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:14.200
  • AND THE DEVIL.
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:15.160
  • AND OUR ONLY OBJECTIVE
  • 00:11:15.160 --> 00:11:17.100

  • NOT PERMITTED TO FOLLOW
  • 00:13:48.180 --> 00:13:49.280

  • WITH AN EVERLASTING --
  • 00:17:53.230 --> 00:17:55.080
  • EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION."
  • 00:17:55.080 --> 00:17:56.270
  • THAT'S PRETTY CLEAR.
  • 00:17:56.270 --> 00:17:58.100
  • SAINT JOHN BELIEVED
  • 00:17:58.100 --> 00:18:01.010
  • IN ETERNAL TORMENT.

  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:11.070
  • NOW, LET ME GIVE YOU
  • 00:18:11.070 --> 00:18:13.120

  • 00:18:53.190 --> 00:18:55.180
  • SIDE NOTE: HERE IS A MAN,
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:58.220
  • WHO HAD THE WEALTH
  • 00:18:58.220 --> 00:18:59.190
  • AND THE POWER

  • FOR NOT HELPING THE PEOPLE
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:27.160
  • WE CAN HELP.
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:28.270
  • WHEN WE HAVE THE ABILITY

  • TO HELP THEM,
  • 00:19:30.100 --> 00:19:31.080
  • AND WE WALK AWAY,

  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:42.290
  • I'LL PICK UP JESUS AGAIN.
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:45.260
  • "NOW IT HAPPENED THAT THE POOR
  • 00:19:45.260 --> 00:19:47.000
  • MAN DIED AND HIS SPIRIT
  • 00:19:47.000 --> 00:19:49.140
  • WAS CARRIED AWAY BY THE ANGELS
  • 00:19:49.140 --> 00:19:51.020

  • IN PARADISE."
  • 00:20:05.160 --> 00:20:07.070

  • "FATHER ABRAHAM,
  • 00:20:08.100 --> 00:20:09.190

  • IN SEVERE AGONY IN THIS FLAME."
  • 00:20:19.070 --> 00:20:22.070
  • SIDE NOTE: THERE ARE PREACHERS
  • 00:20:22.070 --> 00:20:24.210
  • WHO TEACH THAT WHEN YOU DIE,
  • 00:20:24.210 --> 00:20:26.220
  • YOU DIE LIKE A DOG,

  • IN ETERNITY WAS.
  • 00:20:35.260 --> 00:20:37.200
  • HE ASKED FOR ONE DROP OF WATER.

  • YESTERDAY,
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:41.020
  • WITH ALL OF HIS WEALTH,
  • 00:20:41.020 --> 00:20:42.040
  • HE COULD HAVE BOUGHT
  • 00:20:42.040 --> 00:20:42.270
  • A WAGON LOAD OF WATER.

  • "SON, REMEMBER THAT

  • EXPECTS OF US,
  • 00:29:15.090 --> 00:29:16.090
  • WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THE ROLES
  • 00:29:16.090 --> 00:29:18.010
  • AND RELATIONSHIPS OF THE THINGS
  • 00:29:18.010 --> 00:29:19.140
  • JESUS JUST SAID RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:29:19.140 --> 00:29:22.060
  • WHO IS THE VINE?
  • 00:29:22.060 --> 00:29:25.020
  • JESUS.
  • 00:29:25.020 --> 00:29:26.160
  • WHO ARE THE BRANCHES?
  • 00:29:26.160 --> 00:29:28.230
  • WE ARE.
  • 00:29:28.230 --> 00:29:30.020
  • WHO IS THE VINE DRESSER?
  • 00:29:30.020 --> 00:29:32.280
  • GOD.
  • 00:29:32.280 --> 00:29:34.120
  • IS IT YOUR JOB TO DRESS
  • 00:29:34.120 --> 00:29:36.060
  • THE VINES?
  • 00:29:36.060 --> 00:29:37.150
  • [No!]
  • 00:29:37.150 --> 00:29:38.140
  • SO THEN STOP LOOKING AT
  • 00:29:38.140 --> 00:29:39.210
  • EVERYBODY ELSE'S LEAVES
  • 00:29:39.210 --> 00:29:41.130
  • AS IF IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:29:42.010 --> 00:29:45.010
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:29:49.160 --> 00:29:52.160
  • JESUS SAID, "I AM THE VINE.
  • 00:29:52.160 --> 00:29:55.060
  • YOU ARE THE BRANCHES.
  • 00:29:55.260 --> 00:29:58.260
  • MY FATHER IS THE VINE DRESSER."
  • 00:29:59.150 --> 00:30:02.150
  • AND WHEN WE LOOK AT
  • 00:30:02.150 --> 00:30:03.120
  • THIS RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:30:03.120 --> 00:30:04.070
  • WE QUICKLY UNDERSTAND EXACTLY
  • 00:30:04.070 --> 00:30:06.210
  • WHAT GOD WANTS FROM US.
  • 00:30:07.080 --> 00:30:10.080
  • YOU KNOW OFTEN PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:30:10.080 --> 00:30:11.230
  • ASKING THE QUESTION, "PASTOR,
  • 00:30:11.230 --> 00:30:13.020
  • WHAT IS GOD'S WILL FOR MY LIFE?
  • 00:30:13.020 --> 00:30:14.150
  • I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT GOD
  • 00:30:14.150 --> 00:30:16.030
  • WANTS FROM ME."
  • 00:30:16.030 --> 00:30:17.020
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT GOD
  • 00:30:17.020 --> 00:30:18.220
  • WROTE IT DOWN IN HIS BOOK.
  • 00:30:18.220 --> 00:30:21.130
  • AND HERE'S WHAT HE SAYS
  • 00:30:21.130 --> 00:30:22.170
  • IN JOHN 15:16;
  • 00:30:22.170 --> 00:30:24.020
  • HE SAID, "YOU DIDN'T CHOOSE ME;
  • 00:30:24.020 --> 00:30:26.010
  • I CHOSE YOU.
  • 00:30:26.010 --> 00:30:28.030
  • AND I APPOINTED YOU
  • 00:30:28.030 --> 00:30:29.110
  • THAT YOU SHOULD BEAR FRUIT."
  • 00:30:29.240 --> 00:30:32.240
  • WHAT DOES GOD WANT FROM US?
  • 00:30:32.240 --> 00:30:34.070
  • IT COMES IN ONE WORD,
  • 00:30:34.070 --> 00:30:36.040
  • "GROWTH."
  • 00:30:36.040 --> 00:30:38.050
  • HE WANTS US TO BEAR FRUIT.
  • 00:30:38.130 --> 00:30:41.130
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO GROW TODAY,
  • 00:30:41.130 --> 00:30:43.000
  • NO MATTER HOW LONG YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:30:43.000 --> 00:30:44.100
  • GOING TO CHURCH.
  • 00:30:44.100 --> 00:30:45.230
  • YOU MAY HAVE BEEN HERE
  • 00:30:45.230 --> 00:30:46.110
  • FOR FIVE MINUTES,
  • 00:30:46.110 --> 00:30:47.070
  • AND YOU MAY HAVE BEEN HERE
  • 00:30:47.070 --> 00:30:48.030
  • FOR 55 YEARS.
  • 00:30:48.030 --> 00:30:49.070
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS
  • 00:30:49.070 --> 00:30:49.290
  • HE'S NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS.
  • 00:30:49.290 --> 00:30:51.250
  • HE WANTS YOU TO GROW.
  • 00:30:51.250 --> 00:30:54.120
  • HE WANTS YOU TO GET BIGGER.
  • 00:30:54.120 --> 00:30:55.260
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BECOME
  • 00:30:55.260 --> 00:30:56.250
  • STRONGER.
  • 00:30:56.250 --> 00:30:57.150
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BELIEVE
  • 00:30:57.150 --> 00:30:58.160
  • FOR MORE.
  • 00:30:58.160 --> 00:30:59.030
  • HE WANTS YOU TO PRODUCE,
  • 00:30:59.030 --> 00:31:00.150
  • BECAUSE HE SAID IT VERY
  • 00:31:00.150 --> 00:31:01.110
  • CLEARLY, "YOU DIDN'T CHOOSE ME,
  • 00:31:01.110 --> 00:31:03.190
  • I CHOSE YOU.
  • 00:31:03.190 --> 00:31:04.290
  • AND I CHOSE YOU THAT YOU MIGHT
  • 00:31:04.290 --> 00:31:06.240
  • PRODUCE FRUIT."
  • 00:31:06.240 --> 00:31:09.150
  • WHAT DOES GOD WANT FROM YOU?
  • 00:31:09.150 --> 00:31:11.040
  • PRODUCTION.
  • 00:31:11.040 --> 00:31:12.150
  • HE WANTS TO COME AND INSPECT
  • 00:31:12.150 --> 00:31:13.240
  • THE AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:31:13.240 --> 00:31:15.080
  • AND WHEN HE SEES
  • 00:31:15.080 --> 00:31:16.030
  • WHAT YOU'RE GROWING,
  • 00:31:16.030 --> 00:31:17.000
  • HE WANTS IT TO BE PLEASING
  • 00:31:17.000 --> 00:31:18.110
  • IN HIS SIGHT.
  • 00:31:18.110 --> 00:31:19.180
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:31:19.180 --> 00:31:21.290
  • YOU'RE EITHER PRODUCING FRUIT
  • 00:31:21.290 --> 00:31:23.170
  • OR YOU'RE PRODUCING STRIFE.
  • 00:31:24.080 --> 00:31:27.080
  • YOUR LIFE IS EITHER GENERATING
  • 00:31:27.080 --> 00:31:28.240
  • JOY OR IT'S BRINGING DIVISION.
  • 00:31:28.240 --> 00:31:31.030
  • YOU'RE EITHER PULLING PEOPLE
  • 00:31:31.030 --> 00:31:32.040
  • TOGETHER
  • 00:31:32.040 --> 00:31:32.240
  • OR YOU'RE PUSHING THEM APART.
  • 00:31:32.240 --> 00:31:34.040
  • YOU ARE EITHER AN AMBASSADOR
  • 00:31:34.040 --> 00:31:35.210
  • OF PEACE
  • 00:31:35.210 --> 00:31:36.140
  • OR YOU ARE THE AGENT OF ANGER.
  • 00:31:36.180 --> 00:31:39.180
  • BUT YOUR LIFE IS PRODUCING
  • 00:31:39.180 --> 00:31:41.260
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:31:41.260 --> 00:31:42.150
  • THERE IS NO NEUTRAL GROUND.
  • 00:31:42.150 --> 00:31:44.000
  • JESUS SAID IT THIS WAY
  • 00:31:44.000 --> 00:31:45.040
  • IN MATTHEW 7:17; HE SAID,
  • 00:31:45.040 --> 00:31:47.130
  • "GOOD TREES PRODUCE GOOD FRUIT,
  • 00:31:47.130 --> 00:31:49.250
  • AND BAD TREES
  • 00:31:49.250 --> 00:31:50.230
  • PRODUCE BAD FRUIT,
  • 00:31:50.230 --> 00:31:52.030
  • AND EVERY TREE IS KNOWN
  • 00:31:52.030 --> 00:31:53.210
  • BY ITS --"
  • 00:31:53.210 --> 00:31:55.040

  • "EVERY TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS --

  • [Fruit!]
  • 00:31:58.290 --> 00:32:01.020
  • YOU CAN'T HIDE,
  • 00:32:01.020 --> 00:32:01.280
  • FROM THE WORLD, WHO YOU ARE.

  • MEMORIZED.

  • WHENEVER YOUR LIFE GOES THROUGH

  • AFTER ANOTHER,
  • 00:32:25.000 --> 00:32:26.000
  • WHEN IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS,

  • THREE DIVORCES,

  • DOG WHO'D RATHER PLAY IN THE
  • 00:32:32.210 --> 00:32:33.290
  • STREET THAN SIT NEXT TO YOU.
  • 00:32:33.290 --> 00:32:36.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:32:36.230 --> 00:32:37.150
  • YOU CAN'T TELL SOMEBODY,
  • 00:32:37.150 --> 00:32:38.220

  • BUT THEIR PROFESSION DOES NOT

  • ALL THE WAY BACK TO ABRAHAM.
  • 00:33:31.020 --> 00:33:34.020
  • I AM THE VINE THAT CONNECTS
  • 00:33:34.080 --> 00:33:37.080
  • THE COVENANT THAT GOD MADE
  • 00:33:37.080 --> 00:33:38.240
  • IN GENESIS WITH WHAT HE DID
  • 00:33:38.240 --> 00:33:40.280
  • FOR YOU ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:33:40.280 --> 00:33:43.120
  • I AM THE VINE THAT PULLS YOU

  • INTO EVERY PROMISE OF THE WORD
  • 00:33:45.190 --> 00:33:47.230
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:33:47.230 --> 00:33:49.070
  • PAUL SAID
  • 00:33:49.070 --> 00:33:50.020
  • THAT BEFORE THE CROSS,
  • 00:33:50.020 --> 00:33:51.070
  • WE WERE WITHOUT HOPE,
  • 00:33:51.070 --> 00:33:52.210
  • WITHOUT CHRIST,
  • 00:33:52.210 --> 00:33:53.210
  • AND OUTSIDE OF THE COVENANTS.
  • 00:33:53.210 --> 00:33:55.150
  • BUT BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN
  • 00:33:55.150 --> 00:33:56.180
  • GRAFTED INTO THE VINE,
  • 00:33:56.180 --> 00:33:58.160
  • NOW EVERY PROMISE IS YES
  • 00:33:58.160 --> 00:34:00.130
  • AND AMEN IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:34:00.130 --> 00:34:03.010
  • EVERY WORD OF GOD IS NOW

  • A SACRED VINE AS JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:34:17.280 --> 00:34:20.220
  • GIVE THE LORD A HANDCLAP
  • 00:34:20.220 --> 00:34:21.220
  • OF PRAISE.

  • (APPLAUSE)

  • THERE IS NO FRUIT.
  • 00:34:30.230 --> 00:34:33.030
  • THIS IS A BRANCH.
  • 00:34:33.030 --> 00:34:35.070
  • THIS BRANCH SHOULD BE ABLE
  • 00:34:35.070 --> 00:34:37.030
  • TO PRODUCE.
  • 00:34:37.030 --> 00:34:37.220
  • BUT THE PROBLEM IS
  • 00:34:37.220 --> 00:34:38.220
  • IT CANNOT PRODUCE.
  • 00:34:38.220 --> 00:34:39.290
  • WHY?
  • 00:34:39.290 --> 00:34:41.230
  • THERE'S NO ROOT.
  • 00:34:41.230 --> 00:34:44.120
  • JESUS SPEAKS ABOUT TWO
  • 00:34:44.120 --> 00:34:45.200
  • DIFFERENT BRANCHES IN JOHN 15.
  • 00:34:45.200 --> 00:34:48.170
  • YOU NEED TO SEE THE DISTINCTION
  • 00:34:48.170 --> 00:34:49.200
  • BETWEEN THEM BOTH.
  • 00:34:49.200 --> 00:34:51.280
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:34:51.280 --> 00:34:52.120
  • "EVERY BRANCH THAT ABIDES
  • 00:34:52.120 --> 00:34:54.250
  • IN ME,"

  • JOHN 15:5.
  • 00:34:56.230 --> 00:34:59.230
  • "EVERY BRANCH THAT ABIDES
  • 00:34:59.230 --> 00:35:01.180
  • IN ME PRODUCES FRUIT."
  • 00:35:02.220 --> 00:35:05.220
  • AND THEN IN JOHN 15:6,
  • 00:35:05.220 --> 00:35:08.100
  • THE VERY NEXT VERSE, HE SAID,
  • 00:35:08.100 --> 00:35:09.140
  • "AND EVERY BRANCH THAT DOES NOT
  • 00:35:09.140 --> 00:35:12.010
  • ABIDE IN ME."
  • 00:35:12.070 --> 00:35:15.070
  • HE SAID, "IT'S GATHERED
  • 00:35:15.070 --> 00:35:16.010
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:35:16.010 --> 00:35:17.070
  • IT'S BURNED WITH FIRE,
  • 00:35:17.070 --> 00:35:18.130
  • AND IT'S CAST AWAY."
  • 00:35:18.130 --> 00:35:20.140
  • HOW MANY OF YOU SEE
  • 00:35:20.140 --> 00:35:21.160
  • A DISTINCTION BETWEEN A BRANCH
  • 00:35:21.160 --> 00:35:23.120
  • THAT ABIDES IN AND A BRANCH
  • 00:35:23.120 --> 00:35:25.020
  • THAT DOES NOT ABIDE IN?
  • 00:35:25.020 --> 00:35:27.280
  • RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU'RE SURE.
  • 00:35:27.280 --> 00:35:30.200
  • THE REASON THAT I'M ASKING YOU
  • 00:35:30.200 --> 00:35:31.250
  • THIS IS BECAUSE OFTEN TIMES
  • 00:35:31.250 --> 00:35:33.150
  • WHENEVER PEOPLE READ
  • 00:35:33.150 --> 00:35:35.010
  • THIS CHAPTER AND THESE VERSES,
  • 00:35:35.010 --> 00:35:37.120
  • THEY BEGIN TO CONFUSE
  • 00:35:37.120 --> 00:35:38.250
  • THE BRANCHES.
  • 00:35:38.250 --> 00:35:40.180
  • YOU'LL HAVE PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:35:40.180 --> 00:35:41.160
  • "WELL SEE GOD'S SO INTERESTED
  • 00:35:41.160 --> 00:35:42.290
  • IN FRUIT;
  • 00:35:42.290 --> 00:35:43.170
  • THAT IF YOU'RE NOT PRODUCING
  • 00:35:43.170 --> 00:35:44.170
  • FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:35:44.170 --> 00:35:45.280
  • FOR JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:35:45.280 --> 00:35:46.220
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE TAKEN AWAY,
  • 00:35:46.220 --> 00:35:47.280
  • GATHERED UP, AND BURNED."
  • 00:35:47.280 --> 00:35:50.130
  • NO.
  • 00:35:50.130 --> 00:35:52.060
  • THAT'S TAKING A BIT
  • 00:35:52.060 --> 00:35:53.240
  • OF THIS VERSE
  • 00:35:53.240 --> 00:35:54.160
  • AND A LITTLE OF THAT VERSE,
  • 00:35:54.160 --> 00:35:55.200
  • AND CREATING YOUR OWN DOCTRINE.
  • 00:35:55.200 --> 00:35:57.030
  • NOW I'M NOT SAYING
  • 00:35:57.030 --> 00:35:57.230
  • YOU'VE DONE THAT,
  • 00:35:57.230 --> 00:35:58.130
  • BUT HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW PEOPLE
  • 00:35:58.130 --> 00:35:59.140
  • WHO HAVE?
  • 00:35:59.140 --> 00:36:01.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:36:01.030 --> 00:36:02.050
  • THERE ARE TWO DISTINCT
  • 00:36:02.050 --> 00:36:03.170
  • BRANCHES,
  • 00:36:03.170 --> 00:36:04.170
  • THE BRANCH THAT IS IN ME,
  • 00:36:06.210 --> 00:36:09.210
  • GRAFTED IN;
  • 00:36:10.210 --> 00:36:13.210
  • AND THE BRANCH THAT IS NOT
  • 00:36:13.210 --> 00:36:15.160
  • IN ME.
  • 00:36:15.160 --> 00:36:17.210
  • THIS BRANCH IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:36:17.210 --> 00:36:19.140
  • PICKED UP AND BURNED,
  • 00:36:19.140 --> 00:36:21.070
  • BECAUSE IT HAS NO RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:36:21.070 --> 00:36:23.000
  • WITH JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:36:23.000 --> 00:36:25.060
  • THIS BRANCH,
  • 00:36:25.060 --> 00:36:26.160
  • THE DAY IT GOT GRAFTED IN,
  • 00:36:26.170 --> 00:36:29.170
  • THE DAY THAT IT WENT FROM BEING
  • 00:36:29.170 --> 00:36:31.110
  • ALONE TO BEING CONNECTED,
  • 00:36:31.110 --> 00:36:34.080
  • THE DAY THAT IT HEARD AT
  • 00:36:34.080 --> 00:36:36.010
  • CORNERSTONE CHURCH,
  • 00:36:36.010 --> 00:36:37.110
  • "APART FROM ME,
  • 00:36:37.110 --> 00:36:38.160
  • YOU CAN DO NOTHING.
  • 00:36:38.160 --> 00:36:39.290
  • BUT WITH ME,
  • 00:36:39.290 --> 00:36:40.270
  • YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS;"
  • 00:36:40.270 --> 00:36:42.260
  • THE DAY THAT IT MADE
  • 00:36:42.260 --> 00:36:43.220
  • A DECISION TO RECEIVE IN FAITH
  • 00:36:43.220 --> 00:36:46.100
  • THE FREE GIFT OF SALVATION,
  • 00:36:46.100 --> 00:36:48.070
  • THAT IS THE DAY THAT
  • 00:36:48.070 --> 00:36:49.240
  • THIS BRANCH BECAME ALIVE.
  • 00:36:49.240 --> 00:36:51.280
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:36:51.280 --> 00:36:52.270
  • IT WAS DEAD.
  • 00:36:52.270 --> 00:36:53.280
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:36:53.280 --> 00:36:54.260
  • IT'LL NEVER DIE.
  • 00:36:54.260 --> 00:36:55.270
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:36:55.270 --> 00:36:56.230
  • IT HAD NO HOPE.
  • 00:36:56.230 --> 00:36:57.280
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:36:57.280 --> 00:36:58.210
  • IT HAS ALL OF THE HOPE THAT
  • 00:36:58.210 --> 00:37:00.090
  • THE WORD OF GOD CAN PROMISE.
  • 00:37:00.090 --> 00:37:01.280
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:37:01.280 --> 00:37:02.210
  • IT WAS POWERLESS.
  • 00:37:02.210 --> 00:37:03.250
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:37:03.250 --> 00:37:04.220
  • IT CAN DO ALL THINGS!
  • 00:37:04.220 --> 00:37:06.210
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:37:06.210 --> 00:37:07.150
  • IT HAD NO PROVISION.
  • 00:37:07.150 --> 00:37:08.250
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:37:08.250 --> 00:37:09.230
  • "MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL OF MY
  • 00:37:09.230 --> 00:37:11.280
  • NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES
  • 00:37:11.280 --> 00:37:13.190
  • IN GLORY."
  • 00:37:13.190 --> 00:37:14.170
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:37:14.170 --> 00:37:15.180
  • HE WAS ALONE.
  • 00:37:15.180 --> 00:37:16.160
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:37:16.160 --> 00:37:17.140
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:37:17.140 --> 00:37:18.070
  • "I'LL NEVER LEAVE YOU,
  • 00:37:18.070 --> 00:37:19.070
  • NOR WILL I FORSAKE YOU
  • 00:37:19.070 --> 00:37:20.160
  • EVEN TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH."
  • 00:37:20.160 --> 00:37:22.040
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:37:22.040 --> 00:37:23.000
  • THERE WAS NO COVERING.
  • 00:37:23.000 --> 00:37:24.080
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:37:24.080 --> 00:37:25.050
  • HE'S GIVEN HIS ANGELS CHARGE
  • 00:37:25.050 --> 00:37:26.230
  • OVER YOU TO PROTECT YOU AND
  • 00:37:26.230 --> 00:37:28.050
  • GUARD YOU IN ALL OF YOUR WAYS.
  • 00:37:28.050 --> 00:37:30.030
  • BEFORE CHRIST,
  • 00:37:30.030 --> 00:37:31.010
  • HE WAS CURSED.
  • 00:37:31.010 --> 00:37:31.250
  • AFTER CHRIST,
  • 00:37:31.250 --> 00:37:32.240
  • HE'S THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL,
  • 00:37:32.240 --> 00:37:34.140
  • ABOVE ONLY AND NOT BENEATH!
  • 00:37:34.140 --> 00:37:36.050
  • HE'S BLESSED GOING IN!
  • 00:37:36.050 --> 00:37:37.110
  • HE'S BLESSED COMING OUT!
  • 00:37:37.110 --> 00:37:38.250
  • EVERYTHING HE PUTS HIS HAND TO
  • 00:37:38.250 --> 00:37:40.110
  • IS GOING TO PROSPER!
  • 00:37:40.110 --> 00:37:41.200
  • WHY?
  • 00:37:41.200 --> 00:37:42.090
  • BECAUSE HE'S BEEN GRAFTED
  • 00:37:42.090 --> 00:37:43.270
  • INTO THE VINE!
  • 00:37:43.270 --> 00:37:46.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:37:49.210 --> 00:37:52.210
  • THERE'S TWO BRANCHES,
  • 00:37:52.210 --> 00:37:55.130
  • A BRANCH THAT'S IN
  • 00:37:55.130 --> 00:37:57.200
  • AND A BRANCH THAT'S OUT.
  • 00:37:57.200 --> 00:38:00.220
  • AND IN JOHN 15:2, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:38:01.000 --> 00:38:04.000
  • "EVERY BRANCH THAT DOES NOT
  • 00:38:04.000 --> 00:38:05.150
  • BEAR FRUIT,
  • 00:38:05.150 --> 00:38:07.150
  • HE (GOD, THE VINE DRESSER),
  • 00:38:07.150 --> 00:38:10.090
  • HE TAKES IT AWAY."
  • 00:38:10.090 --> 00:38:13.030
  • NOW THAT'S THE ENGLISH
  • 00:38:13.030 --> 00:38:14.000
  • TRANSLATION.
  • 00:38:14.000 --> 00:38:15.050
  • BUT A BETTER WAY TO SAY
  • 00:38:15.050 --> 00:38:16.050
  • THAT IS,
  • 00:38:16.050 --> 00:38:16.280
  • EVERY BRANCH THAT IS IN ME
  • 00:38:16.280 --> 00:38:19.010
  • THAT DOES NOT BEAR FRUIT,
  • 00:38:19.010 --> 00:38:20.250
  • HE LIFTS IT UP.
  • 00:38:21.250 --> 00:38:24.250
  • THE GREEK WORD IS "AIRO."
  • 00:38:24.260 --> 00:38:27.260
  • "AIRO" MEANS TO LIFT UP.
  • 00:38:27.260 --> 00:38:29.140
  • HERE, IT'S WRITTEN,
  • 00:38:29.140 --> 00:38:30.110
  • "TAKES AWAY."
  • 00:38:30.110 --> 00:38:31.160
  • AND THERE'S SEVERAL PLACES
  • 00:38:31.160 --> 00:38:32.190
  • WHERE WE SEE THE WORD "AIRO"
  • 00:38:32.190 --> 00:38:34.150
  • WRITTEN IN SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:38:34.150 --> 00:38:35.190
  • FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:38:35.190 --> 00:38:36.260
  • WHEN JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS
  • 00:38:36.260 --> 00:38:38.060
  • BAPTIZING IN THE JORDAN,
  • 00:38:38.060 --> 00:38:39.230
  • AND HE SAW JESUS COMING,
  • 00:38:39.230 --> 00:38:41.130
  • WHAT DID HE SAY?
  • 00:38:41.130 --> 00:38:42.250
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:38:42.250 --> 00:38:43.140
  • "BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD --"
  • 00:38:43.140 --> 00:38:44.270
  • WHO DOES WHAT?
  • 00:38:44.270 --> 00:38:46.040
  • "-- TAKES AWAY THE SINS
  • 00:38:46.040 --> 00:38:47.210
  • OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:38:47.210 --> 00:38:48.170
  • THE GREEK WORD AGAIN, "AIRO."
  • 00:38:48.170 --> 00:38:50.130
  • WHAT HE WAS SAYING IS
  • 00:38:50.130 --> 00:38:51.240
  • THERE IS THE SACRIFICE OF GOD
  • 00:38:51.240 --> 00:38:54.100
  • THAT IS GOING TO TAKE MY SIN
  • 00:38:54.100 --> 00:38:55.240
  • AND YOUR SIN,
  • 00:38:55.240 --> 00:38:56.170
  • AND HE'S NOT GOING TO TAKE IT
  • 00:38:56.170 --> 00:38:58.050
  • AWAY FROM YOU;
  • 00:38:58.050 --> 00:38:58.240
  • HE'S GOING TO TAKE IT AWAY
  • 00:38:58.240 --> 00:39:00.290
  • AND LIFT IT UP TO GOD.
  • 00:39:02.130 --> 00:39:05.130
  • JESUS CHRIST SAID IT THIS WAY;
  • 00:39:05.130 --> 00:39:06.240
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:39:06.240 --> 00:39:07.120
  • "IF I BE LIFTED UP (AIRO),
  • 00:39:09.260 --> 00:39:12.260
  • I WILL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME."
  • 00:39:13.100 --> 00:39:16.100
  • SO JOHN 15:2,
  • 00:39:16.100 --> 00:39:17.260
  • "EVERY BRANCH THAT IS IN ME,"
  • 00:39:18.020 --> 00:39:21.020
  • EVERY BRANCH THAT HAS BEEN
  • 00:39:21.020 --> 00:39:22.290
  • TO THE ALTAR AND GOTTEN SAVED,
  • 00:39:22.290 --> 00:39:24.290
  • EVERY BRANCH THAT HAS
  • 00:39:24.290 --> 00:39:26.020
  • A PROFESSION OF FAITH,
  • 00:39:26.020 --> 00:39:27.070
  • "EVERY BRANCH THAT HAS IN ME
  • 00:39:27.070 --> 00:39:29.060
  • THAT DOES NOT BEAR FRUIT,
  • 00:39:29.060 --> 00:39:30.230
  • HE LIFTS IT UP."
  • 00:39:30.230 --> 00:39:32.150
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE SEEN
  • 00:39:32.150 --> 00:39:33.260
  • A VINEYARD?
  • 00:39:33.260 --> 00:39:35.240
  • HAVE YOU EVER SEEN GRAPES
  • 00:39:35.240 --> 00:39:37.010
  • GROWN ON THE GROUND?
  • 00:39:37.010 --> 00:39:38.170
  • [No!]
  • 00:39:38.170 --> 00:39:39.230
  • GRAPES GROW WITH SUPPORT.
  • 00:39:39.230 --> 00:39:42.230
  • GRAPES ARE HELD UP ON POSTS
  • 00:39:42.230 --> 00:39:45.080
  • THAT ENABLE THE VINES TO GROW
  • 00:39:45.080 --> 00:39:47.060
  • AND THE FRUIT TO HANG.
  • 00:39:47.060 --> 00:39:49.150
  • MUSIC
  • 00:39:49.150 --> 00:39:51.040
  • HAS THE WORLD OF GOD
  • 00:39:51.040 --> 00:39:52.140
  • BLESSED YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:39:52.140 --> 00:39:54.100
  • DO YOU WANT TO SHARE
  • 00:39:54.100 --> 00:39:55.040
  • YOUR BLESSINGS WITH OTHERS?
  • 00:39:55.040 --> 00:39:57.130
  • DO YOU DESIRE TO LEAVE
  • 00:39:57.130 --> 00:39:58.120
  • A LASTING LEGACY AND SHARE
  • 00:39:58.120 --> 00:40:00.070

  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: ONE
  • 00:40:51.130 --> 00:40:52.120
  • OF THE REASONS WHY THIS VINE
  • 00:40:52.120 --> 00:40:53.160
  • HAS TO BE LIFTED UP BY THE
  • 00:40:53.160 --> 00:40:55.020
  • VINE DRESSER IS BECAUSE IT HAS
  • 00:40:55.020 --> 00:40:56.280
  • BEEN CONNECTED TO A SOURCE
  • 00:40:56.280 --> 00:40:58.270
  • OF POTENTIAL AND POWER,
  • 00:40:58.270 --> 00:41:00.180
  • BUT IT IS GROWING IN A PLACE
  • 00:41:00.180 --> 00:41:02.140
  • THAT IT WAS NEVER INTENDED
  • 00:41:02.140 --> 00:41:03.230
  • TO EXIST.
  • 00:41:03.230 --> 00:41:06.030
  • HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW GOD'S KIDS
  • 00:41:06.030 --> 00:41:08.190
  • CANNOT GROW IN A PLACE THEY
  • 00:41:08.190 --> 00:41:10.090
  • WERE NEVER INTENDED TO EXIST?
  • 00:41:10.160 --> 00:41:13.160
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE,
  • 00:41:13.160 --> 00:41:14.060
  • WHO COME TO CHURCH EVERY
  • 00:41:14.060 --> 00:41:15.070
  • SUNDAY, AND THEY'RE ASKING GOD,
  • 00:41:15.070 --> 00:41:16.210
  • "GOD, HELP ME GROW."
  • 00:41:16.210 --> 00:41:18.020
  • AND THEN MONDAY
  • 00:41:18.020 --> 00:41:18.180
  • THROUGH FRIDAY,
  • 00:41:18.180 --> 00:41:19.050
  • THEY GO RIGHT BACK
  • 00:41:19.050 --> 00:41:20.000
  • INTO THE WORLD.
  • 00:41:20.000 --> 00:41:20.280
  • AND THEY TRY TO ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:41:20.280 --> 00:41:22.030
  • THE GODLY THINGS THAT
  • 00:41:22.030 --> 00:41:23.060
  • THEY HEARD ABOUT IN CHURCH.
  • 00:41:23.060 --> 00:41:24.160
  • BUT YOU CAN'T GO OUT THERE AND
  • 00:41:24.160 --> 00:41:26.150
  • DO WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO,
  • 00:41:26.150 --> 00:41:27.260
  • BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T INTENDED
  • 00:41:27.260 --> 00:41:29.100
  • TO GROW DOWN HERE.
  • 00:41:29.100 --> 00:41:30.290
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:41:30.290 --> 00:41:33.160
  • NOW THIS IS A VERY POWERFUL
  • 00:41:33.160 --> 00:41:34.170
  • PICTURE,
  • 00:41:34.170 --> 00:41:35.030
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:41:35.030 --> 00:41:36.000
  • THAT THE VINE DRESSER
  • 00:41:36.000 --> 00:41:37.130
  • PICKS YOU UP,
  • 00:41:37.170 --> 00:41:40.170
  • THE WAY HE PICKS YOU UP
  • 00:41:41.280 --> 00:41:44.280
  • IS THROUGH THE WORD.
  • 00:41:46.080 --> 00:41:49.080
  • FIRST,
  • 00:41:49.080 --> 00:41:49.290
  • WITH THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:41:49.290 --> 00:41:52.240
  • THE BIBLE SAYS OF JESUS
  • 00:41:52.240 --> 00:41:53.270
  • IN THE BOOK OF JOHN,
  • 00:41:53.270 --> 00:41:54.230
  • "IN THE BEGINNING,
  • 00:41:54.230 --> 00:41:55.150
  • WAS THE WORD."
  • 00:41:55.290 --> 00:41:58.290
  • AND IN JOHN 14, IT SAYS,
  • 00:41:58.290 --> 00:42:01.000
  • "AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH
  • 00:42:01.000 --> 00:42:03.280
  • AND DWELT AMONG US."
  • 00:42:03.280 --> 00:42:05.190
  • WHEN JESUS LOOKED AT
  • 00:42:05.190 --> 00:42:06.140
  • THE DISCIPLES, AND HE SAID,
  • 00:42:06.140 --> 00:42:07.150
  • YOU GUYS ARE ALREADY CLEAN,
  • 00:42:07.150 --> 00:42:09.020
  • YOU'VE ALREADY BEEN PICKED UP
  • 00:42:09.020 --> 00:42:10.230
  • AND WASHED OFF,
  • 00:42:10.230 --> 00:42:12.030
  • PREPARED FOR GROWTH,
  • 00:42:12.030 --> 00:42:13.120
  • BECAUSE OF THE WASHING
  • 00:42:13.120 --> 00:42:14.160
  • OF THE WATER OF THE WORD.
  • 00:42:14.160 --> 00:42:16.040
  • WHERE DID THEY GET THAT WORD?
  • 00:42:16.040 --> 00:42:17.120
  • THEY GOT THAT WORD FROM HIM.
  • 00:42:17.120 --> 00:42:20.120
  • WHERE DO WE GET THE WORD?
  • 00:42:20.120 --> 00:42:23.030
  • WE GET THE WORD FROM WHAT
  • 00:42:23.030 --> 00:42:24.190
  • IS WRITTEN.
  • 00:42:24.190 --> 00:42:27.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:42:27.160 --> 00:42:29.010
  • THAT IS IN THIS BOOK
  • 00:42:29.010 --> 00:42:29.240
  • IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION
  • 00:42:29.240 --> 00:42:31.060
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:42:31.060 --> 00:42:32.130
  • AND IT IS GOOD FOR
  • 00:42:32.130 --> 00:42:33.090
  • ENCOURAGEMENT,
  • 00:42:33.090 --> 00:42:33.290
  • FOR EXHORTATION,
  • 00:42:33.290 --> 00:42:34.280
  • FOR CORRECTION,
  • 00:42:34.280 --> 00:42:35.210
  • FOR DOCTRINE,
  • 00:42:35.210 --> 00:42:36.080
  • AND FOR REPROOF.
  • 00:42:36.080 --> 00:42:38.080
  • THIS IS NOT JUST A BOOK
  • 00:42:38.080 --> 00:42:39.230
  • THAT HAS BEEN PRINTED
  • 00:42:39.230 --> 00:42:40.290
  • AND PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION
  • 00:42:40.290 --> 00:42:42.190
  • TO GENERATION.
  • 00:42:42.190 --> 00:42:43.170
  • THIS IS THE WRITTEN WORD
  • 00:42:43.170 --> 00:42:45.230
  • OF GOD!
  • 00:42:45.230 --> 00:42:47.190
  • THIS IS MEAT FOR MEN.
  • 00:42:47.190 --> 00:42:48.250
  • THIS IS MILK FOR BABIES.
  • 00:42:48.250 --> 00:42:50.110
  • THIS IS YOUR SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:42:50.110 --> 00:42:51.240
  • SOURCE OF STRENGTH.
  • 00:42:51.240 --> 00:42:54.200
  • AND WHENEVER SOMEBODY COMES
  • 00:42:54.200 --> 00:42:55.150
  • TO SALVATION,
  • 00:42:55.150 --> 00:42:56.210
  • AND THEY GET CONNECTED
  • 00:42:56.210 --> 00:42:57.160
  • WITH THE VINE,
  • 00:42:57.160 --> 00:42:58.250
  • THE THING THAT EVERYONE NEEDS
  • 00:42:58.250 --> 00:43:00.190
  • IS A SOURCE OF STRENGTH.
  • 00:43:00.190 --> 00:43:02.030
  • YOU ARE A NEWBORN CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:43:02.030 --> 00:43:04.000
  • JUST LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD NEEDS
  • 00:43:04.000 --> 00:43:05.280
  • MILK, YOU NEED NOURISHMENT.
  • 00:43:05.280 --> 00:43:08.050
  • AND YOUR NOURISHMENT COMES FROM
  • 00:43:08.050 --> 00:43:09.210
  • THE MILK OF THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:43:11.100 --> 00:43:14.100
  • NOW THE PROBLEM IS
  • 00:43:14.190 --> 00:43:17.190
  • UNTIL YOU READ
  • 00:43:17.190 --> 00:43:18.090
  • THE WRITTEN WORD,
  • 00:43:18.090 --> 00:43:19.040
  • IT DOESN'T WORK FOR YOU.
  • 00:43:19.070 --> 00:43:22.070
  • SOME PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST.
  • 00:43:22.070 --> 00:43:24.030
  • THEY'RE GRAFTED INTO THE VINE,
  • 00:43:24.030 --> 00:43:25.230
  • AND ALL THEY DO IS COME
  • 00:43:25.230 --> 00:43:26.180
  • TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:43:26.180 --> 00:43:27.270
  • AND IF THEY COME TO A CHURCH
  • 00:43:27.270 --> 00:43:28.280
  • WHERE THE WORD IS PREACHED,
  • 00:43:28.280 --> 00:43:30.170
  • THEY GET A LITTLE PICK ME UP.
  • 00:43:30.170 --> 00:43:32.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:32.250 --> 00:43:34.050
  • OH, THAT SERMON THE PREACHER
  • 00:43:34.050 --> 00:43:35.080
  • PREACHED WAS GOOD.
  • 00:43:35.080 --> 00:43:37.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:37.070 --> 00:43:38.130
  • MAN, HE WAS ON TARGET TODAY.
  • 00:43:38.130 --> 00:43:41.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:41.000 --> 00:43:42.210
  • I CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT SUNDAY.
  • 00:43:42.210 --> 00:43:44.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:44.260 --> 00:43:46.250
  • I HOPE MY MOTHER-IN-LAW BOUGHT
  • 00:43:46.250 --> 00:43:47.230
  • THE TAPE.
  • 00:43:47.230 --> 00:43:49.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:43:50.260 --> 00:43:53.260
  • AND ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THAT
  • 00:43:53.260 --> 00:43:54.240
  • WE HAVE IN THE CHURCH TODAY,
  • 00:43:54.240 --> 00:43:55.270
  • ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE'RE
  • 00:43:55.270 --> 00:43:57.010
  • NOT GROWING IS BECAUSE WE THINK
  • 00:43:57.010 --> 00:43:58.260
  • THAT A SUNDAY PICK-ME-UP
  • 00:43:58.260 --> 00:44:00.210
  • IS THE SAME AS WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:44:00.210 --> 00:44:02.000
  • WHEN THE WORD LIFTS YOU UP.
  • 00:44:02.000 --> 00:44:04.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:44:04.250 --> 00:44:06.040
  • IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH JUST TO
  • 00:44:06.040 --> 00:44:07.130
  • SIT HERE ON SUNDAY AND
  • 00:44:07.130 --> 00:44:08.270
  • LISTEN TO THE WORD PREACHED.
  • 00:44:08.270 --> 00:44:10.070
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GO HOME
  • 00:44:10.070 --> 00:44:11.140
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO READ
  • 00:44:11.140 --> 00:44:12.150
  • WHAT IS WRITTEN!
  • 00:44:12.150 --> 00:44:14.270
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:44:18.160 --> 00:44:21.160
  • BECAUSE ONCE YOU RECEIVE
  • 00:44:21.160 --> 00:44:22.270
  • THE WRITTEN WORD,
  • 00:44:22.270 --> 00:44:25.060
  • THEN YOU START TO FIND IN YOU
  • 00:44:27.020 --> 00:44:30.020
  • WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS
  • 00:44:30.020 --> 00:44:31.280
  • "THE SPOKEN WORD."
  • 00:44:31.280 --> 00:44:34.220
  • HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT WHEN
  • 00:44:34.220 --> 00:44:35.230
  • PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST AND THEY
  • 00:44:35.230 --> 00:44:37.000
  • START READING THE BIBLE,
  • 00:44:37.000 --> 00:44:38.260
  • SUDDENLY THEY START SPEAKING
  • 00:44:38.260 --> 00:44:40.290
  • THE BIBLE?
  • 00:44:40.290 --> 00:44:42.290
  • I ALWAYS GET A KICK OUT OF IT
  • 00:44:42.290 --> 00:44:44.010
  • WHEN NEW CHRISTIANS COME IN
  • 00:44:44.010 --> 00:44:45.070
  • AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:44:45.070 --> 00:44:45.290
  • "DOESN'T THE BIBLE SAY..."
  • 00:44:45.290 --> 00:44:47.290
  • AND I JUST KIND OF BRACE
  • 00:44:47.290 --> 00:44:48.290
  • BECAUSE I HOPE THEY GET CLOSE.
  • 00:44:48.290 --> 00:44:51.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:44:52.110 --> 00:44:55.110
  • BUT WHAT HAPPENS IS WHAT YOU
  • 00:44:55.110 --> 00:44:57.070
  • INGEST, YOU REPEAT.
  • 00:44:57.270 --> 00:45:00.290
  • NOW ISAIAH 55:11, IT SAYS,
  • 00:45:01.110 --> 00:45:04.110
  • "MY WORD THAT COMES FORTH
  • 00:45:04.110 --> 00:45:06.030
  • FROM MY MOUTH,
  • 00:45:06.030 --> 00:45:06.290
  • IT WILL NOT RETURN TO ME VOID."
  • 00:45:08.190 --> 00:45:11.190
  • PAUL SAID THIS IN EPHESIANS 6,
  • 00:45:11.190 --> 00:45:13.190
  • WHEN HE WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:45:13.190 --> 00:45:15.000
  • THE ARMOR OF GOD.
  • 00:45:15.000 --> 00:45:16.120
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:45:16.120 --> 00:45:17.000
  • "AFTER YOU PUT ON ALL
  • 00:45:17.000 --> 00:45:18.100
  • OF THE ARMOR,
  • 00:45:18.100 --> 00:45:18.290
  • TAKE UP THE SWORD
  • 00:45:18.290 --> 00:45:20.150
  • OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS --"
  • 00:45:20.150 --> 00:45:22.090
  • WHAT?
  • 00:45:22.090 --> 00:45:23.040
  • "-- THE WORD OF GOD."
  • 00:45:23.040 --> 00:45:25.260
  • IT'S NOT THE WRITTEN WORD;
  • 00:45:25.260 --> 00:45:27.150
  • IT'S THE SPOKEN WORD.
  • 00:45:27.150 --> 00:45:29.230
  • BUT THE CHALLENGE OF THE SPOKEN
  • 00:45:29.230 --> 00:45:31.000
  • WORD IS THAT YOU CANNOT LEARN
  • 00:45:31.000 --> 00:45:33.080
  • THE SPOKEN WORD UNTIL YOU'VE
  • 00:45:33.080 --> 00:45:34.270
  • READ THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:45:35.210 --> 00:45:38.210
  • NOW WHEN YOU CARRY THE WORD
  • 00:45:38.210 --> 00:45:40.020
  • OF GOD WITH YOU
  • 00:45:40.020 --> 00:45:40.280
  • INTO SPIRITUAL WARFARE,
  • 00:45:40.280 --> 00:45:43.170
  • YOU CAN'T USE THE WRITTEN WORD.
  • 00:45:43.170 --> 00:45:46.140
  • IT HAS TO BE THE SPOKEN WORD.
  • 00:45:46.140 --> 00:45:49.060
  • YOU CAN'T WALK UP TO SOMEBODY
  • 00:45:49.060 --> 00:45:50.210
  • AND GO,
  • 00:45:50.210 --> 00:45:51.070
  • "I BIND YOU."
  • 00:45:51.070 --> 00:45:53.270
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:54.090 --> 00:45:57.090
  • THAT'S NOT HOW THIS WORKS.
  • 00:45:57.090 --> 00:45:59.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:45:59.050 --> 00:46:00.260
  • BUT WHEN YOU USE THE WRITTEN
  • 00:46:00.260 --> 00:46:02.050
  • WORD TO ARM YOURSELF
  • 00:46:02.050 --> 00:46:04.150
  • WITH THE PROMISES OF GOD,
  • 00:46:04.150 --> 00:46:06.240
  • AND YOU GET INTO SPIRITUAL
  • 00:46:06.240 --> 00:46:08.000
  • WARFARE,
  • 00:46:08.000 --> 00:46:08.290
  • WHAT IS WRITTEN IN HIS WORD IS
  • 00:46:08.290 --> 00:46:11.020
  • THEN SPOKEN OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.
  • 00:46:11.020 --> 00:46:13.030
  • AND WHAT HE SAID IS
  • 00:46:13.030 --> 00:46:14.050
  • THAT WILL NOT RETURN VOID.
  • 00:46:14.050 --> 00:46:16.160
  • WHEN YOU READ WHAT'S IN WRITING
  • 00:46:16.160 --> 00:46:18.170
  • CONCERNING PHYSICAL HEALING,
  • 00:46:18.170 --> 00:46:20.110
  • AND A SEASON OF SICKNESS COMES,

  • 00:46:27.060 --> 00:46:28.230
  • THE LORD SENT HIS WORD

  • AROUND GOD'S KIDS,

  • THEY SAY,
  • 00:47:13.080 --> 00:47:13.290
  • GOD'S TAKING NOTES ON?
  • 00:47:14.060 --> 00:47:17.060
  • IT WAS THAT WAY IN MY HOUSE
  • 00:47:17.060 --> 00:47:18.120
  • GROWING UP.
  • 00:47:18.120 --> 00:47:20.120
  • DAD WOULD SAY,
  • 00:47:20.120 --> 00:47:21.000
  • "I BELIEVE THE LORD IS..."
  • 00:47:21.000 --> 00:47:22.270

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:47:24.260 --> 00:47:26.130

  • OR NOT,
  • 00:47:27.150 --> 00:47:27.290
  • WHAT HE SAID WAS GOING

  • TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:47:28.240 --> 00:47:30.220
  • WHY?
  • 00:47:30.220 --> 00:47:33.000
  • BECAUSE HE'D INVESTED SO MUCH
  • 00:47:33.000 --> 00:47:34.160
  • OF HIS HEART, SOUL, MIND,
  • 00:47:34.160 --> 00:47:35.260
  • AND BODY IN WHAT WAS WRITTEN.
  • 00:47:35.280 --> 00:47:38.280

  • HE SPOKE IT.
  • 00:47:41.020 --> 00:47:42.220
  • AND THEN IN HIS REALITY,
  • 00:47:42.220 --> 00:47:45.070
  • HE SAW IT.
  • 00:47:47.080 --> 00:47:50.080

  • "WELL, I COULD NEVER DO THAT."
  • 00:48:03.100 --> 00:48:04.200
  • YES, YOU CAN.
  • 00:48:04.200 --> 00:48:06.240
  • AND THE REASON YOU CAN IS
  • 00:48:06.240 --> 00:48:08.140
  • BECAUSE YOUR POINT OF CONTACT
  • 00:48:08.140 --> 00:48:10.280
  • DETERMINES YOUR POTENTIAL.
  • 00:48:11.090 --> 00:48:14.090
  • BILLY GRAHAM SHOOK THE WORLD,

  • OF THE GOSPEL TO THE NATIONS.
  • 00:48:18.110 --> 00:48:21.100
  • AND YOU MIGHT LOOK AT A MAN
  • 00:48:21.100 --> 00:48:22.080
  • LIKE THAT, AND YOU'D SAY,
  • 00:48:22.080 --> 00:48:23.040
  • "OH, I'D NEVER BE USED OF GOD
  • 00:48:23.040 --> 00:48:24.120
  • LIKE THAT."
  • 00:48:24.120 --> 00:48:25.020
  • WHY NOT?
  • 00:48:25.020 --> 00:48:25.250
  • HE'S CONNECTED TO THE SAME VINE
  • 00:48:25.250 --> 00:48:28.060
  • THAT'S CALLING TO YOU TODAY.

  • "YOU DIDN'T CHOOSE ME,"
  • 00:48:46.250 --> 00:48:47.260
  • JESUS SAID,

  • "I CHOSE YOU THAT YOU MAY GROW;
  • 00:48:50.140 --> 00:48:53.140
  • YOU MAY GO AND PRODUCE FRUIT."
  • 00:48:56.070 --> 00:48:59.070
  • IN THE CLOSE OF THIS SERMON,

  • I WANT TO ASK YOU
  • 00:49:00.120 --> 00:49:01.020
  • THIS QUESTION;
  • 00:49:01.020 --> 00:49:03.260
  • WHERE ARE YOU CONNECTED?
  • 00:49:05.280 --> 00:49:08.280
  • WHAT ARE YOU GRAFTED INTO?
  • 00:49:09.100 --> 00:49:12.100
  • WHAT PROMISES ARE ALIVE
  • 00:49:12.100 --> 00:49:14.210
  • IN YOUR LIFE TODAY?

  • ARE YOU LIKE THIS BRANCH?
  • 00:49:18.170 --> 00:49:21.170
  • YOU'VE BEEN AROUND THE THINGS
  • 00:49:21.170 --> 00:49:24.040
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:49:24.040 --> 00:49:26.100
  • YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE
  • 00:49:26.100 --> 00:49:27.130
  • TO BE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:49:27.130 --> 00:49:29.260
  • YOU'VE HEARD THE SPOKEN WORD
  • 00:49:29.260 --> 00:49:31.070
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:49:31.070 --> 00:49:31.210
  • BUT YOU'VE NEVER RECEIVED
  • 00:49:31.210 --> 00:49:33.140
  • THE LIVING WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:49:33.140 --> 00:49:34.170
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN
  • 00:49:34.170 --> 00:49:35.210
  • GRAFTED INTO THE VINE.
  • 00:49:35.210 --> 00:49:37.240
  • MUSIC
  • 00:49:37.240 --> 00:49:40.080
  • OR ARE YOU LIKE THIS BRANCH?
  • 00:49:40.080 --> 00:49:43.010
  • YOU'RE GRAFTED IN.
  • 00:49:43.010 --> 00:49:43.290
  • YOU'VE RECEIVED SALVATION.
  • 00:49:43.290 --> 00:49:45.190
  • YOU JUST NEED TO BE LIFTED UP
  • 00:49:45.190 --> 00:49:47.090
  • OUT OF WHERE YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:49:47.090 --> 00:49:48.200
  • SO THAT YOU CAN BECOME
  • 00:49:48.200 --> 00:49:49.230
  • WHO GOD WANTS YOU TO BE.
  • 00:49:49.230 --> 00:49:51.230
  • MUSIC
  • 00:49:51.230 --> 00:49:53.270
  • YOU SEE YOU CAN'T HEAR MESSAGES
  • 00:49:53.270 --> 00:49:55.160
  • LIKE THIS,
  • 00:49:55.160 --> 00:49:56.120
  • AND GO HOME AND NOTHING CHANGE,
  • 00:49:57.230 --> 00:50:00.230
  • BECAUSE IF YOU DO,
  • 00:50:00.230 --> 00:50:03.180
  • GOD HOLDS YOU ACCOUNTABLE.
  • 00:50:03.180 --> 00:50:04.160
  • YOU'VE HEARD THE WORD.
  • 00:50:05.140 --> 00:50:08.140
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS IT THIS WAY;
  • 00:50:08.140 --> 00:50:09.230
  • "FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD."
  • 00:50:11.160 --> 00:50:14.160
  • "HE WHO KNOWS TO DO RIGHT
  • 00:50:14.160 --> 00:50:15.280
  • AND DOES IT NOT,
  • 00:50:15.280 --> 00:50:16.200
  • TO HIM IT IS SIN."
  • 00:50:16.200 --> 00:50:19.050
  • GOD WANTS US TO GROW.
  • 00:50:19.280 --> 00:50:22.280
  • SOME OF US NEED TO GROW
  • 00:50:22.280 --> 00:50:24.120
  • IN WHAT WE'RE READING.
  • 00:50:24.120 --> 00:50:26.080
  • SOME OF US NEED TO GROW
  • 00:50:26.080 --> 00:50:27.190
  • IN WHAT WE'RE SPEAKING.
  • 00:50:27.190 --> 00:50:29.150
  • SOME OF US NEED TO GROW
  • 00:50:29.150 --> 00:50:31.000
  • IN HOW WE'RE LIVING.
  • 00:50:31.050 --> 00:50:34.050
  • BUT ONE DAY THE VINE DRESSER
  • 00:50:34.050 --> 00:50:35.170
  • IS GOING TO SEND HIS SON BACK
  • 00:50:35.170 --> 00:50:37.180
  • AND EXAMINE WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:50:37.180 --> 00:50:38.180
  • PRODUCING.
  • 00:50:38.180 --> 00:50:41.110
  • AND WHAT HE WANTS IS FRUIT.
  • 00:50:41.110 --> 00:50:44.100
  • SO I WANT TO CLOSE THIS SERVICE
  • 00:50:44.100 --> 00:50:45.140
  • THIS WAY;
  • 00:50:45.140 --> 00:50:46.010

  • 00:50:47.240 --> 00:50:50.110
  • IF YOU'RE GRAFTED IN,
  • 00:50:50.110 --> 00:50:52.000
  • YOU'VE GOT GREAT POTENTIAL.
  • 00:50:52.010 --> 00:50:55.010
  • BUT IF YOU'RE NOT,
  • 00:50:55.010 --> 00:50:57.110
  • YOU'RE DEAD ALREADY.
  • 00:50:57.110 --> 00:50:59.060
  • MUSIC
  • 00:50:59.060 --> 00:51:00.260
  • FOR THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:51:00.260 --> 00:51:01.150
  • HE WHO BELIEVES IN ME
  • 00:51:01.150 --> 00:51:02.210
  • SHALL NEVER DIE.
  • 00:51:02.210 --> 00:51:03.150

  • HE WHO HAS NEVER BEEN
  • 00:51:06.130 --> 00:51:07.150

  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:51:10.180 --> 00:51:12.070
  • AS THEIR SAVIOR;
  • 00:51:12.070 --> 00:51:13.160
  • THEY'RE DEAD ALREADY.
  • 00:51:15.010 --> 00:51:18.010
  • YOU KNOW IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:51:18.010 --> 00:51:18.190
  • HOW LONG THIS BRANCH

  • 00:51:22.120 --> 00:51:23.230
  • SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:51:23.230 --> 00:51:24.160
  • IT'S NOT GOING TO BE GREEN.
  • 00:51:24.160 --> 00:51:25.210
  • IT'S GOING TO WILT
  • 00:51:25.210 --> 00:51:26.150
  • AND IT'S GOING TO WITHER,
  • 00:51:26.150 --> 00:51:27.080
  • AND IT'S GOING TO BECOME DRY.
  • 00:51:27.220 --> 00:51:30.220
  • AND MAYBE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:51:30.220 --> 00:51:31.180
  • IN THIS PLACE TODAY IS WILTED,
