  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:03.110
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: WHEN YOUR
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:04.180
  • FAITH IS GREATER THAN YOUR
  • 00:03:04.180 --> 00:03:06.010
  • CRITIC'S, YOU'RE STRONGER THAN
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:07.210
  • THEY ARE.
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:08.140
  • BECAUSE WHEN GOD IS WITH YOU,
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:11.010
  • NO ONE CAN BE AGAINST YOU!
  • 00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:12.240
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: IN FAITH,
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:13.180
  • THEY BELIEVED IN THE POWER
  • 00:03:13.180 --> 00:03:14.160
  • OF GOD, AND THEY SUBDUED
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:15.270
  • KINGDOMS.
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:16.250
  • IN FAITH, THEY RECEIVED THE
  • 00:03:16.250 --> 00:03:18.120
  • WORD OF GOD, AND SAW THE DEAD
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:20.050
  • BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE.
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.080
  • IN FAITH, THEY SPOKE THE WORD
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:23.060
  • OF GOD, AND THEY TURNED AWAY
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:24.240
  • INVADING ARMIES.
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:26.030
  • AND WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:27.110
  • GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
  • 00:03:28.130 --> 00:03:31.130
  • FEELINGS, FAITH, AND FACTS.
  • 00:03:31.130 --> 00:03:33.160
  • YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

  • MUSIC
  • 00:03:35.250 --> 00:03:37.010
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: IF YOU
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:38.110
  • WOULD, PLEASE STAND FOR THE
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:39.100
  • READING OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:03:39.100 --> 00:03:40.120
  • AND IF YOU BROUGHT YOUR BIBLES,
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:41.100
  • TURN THEM TO THE BOOK OF
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:42.180
  • 2 TIMOTHY 4:3 AND 4, AS WE
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:46.250
  • CONTINUE THIS WEEK WITH THE
  • 00:03:46.250 --> 00:03:47.280
  • SERIES "FEELINGS, FAITH,
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:50.190
  • AND FACTS."
  • 00:03:50.190 --> 00:03:52.000
  • ALL THESE OF THESE ISSUES
  • 00:03:52.000 --> 00:03:53.200
  • ARE SOMETHING YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:54.160
  • TO HAVE TO LEARN TO ADDRESS
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:56.000
  • AND BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:56.000 --> 00:03:58.040
  • LAST WEEK, WE DISCUSSED
  • 00:03:58.040 --> 00:03:59.060
  • FEELINGS WITH THE SERMON
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:00.130
  • "THERE'S NO PLACE TO HIDE."
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:02.290
  • EVERY ONE OF US HAVE FEELINGS.
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:05.270
  • BUT FEELINGS DO NOT HAVE TO RUN
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:07.120
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:09.050
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:04:09.050 --> 00:04:10.120
  • IF YOU USE HIS WORD IN FAITH
  • 00:04:10.120 --> 00:04:12.260
  • BELIEVING, YOU HAVE THE ABILITY
  • 00:04:12.260 --> 00:04:15.070
  • TO OVERCOME YOUR FEELINGS WITH
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:17.250
  • FAITH.
  • 00:04:17.250 --> 00:04:19.010
  • WHEN FEELINGS GET OUT OF
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:20.060
  • CONTROL, THEY CREATE WHAT THE
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:21.190
  • BIBLE CALLS "A STRONGHOLD."
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:24.040
  • AND THAT STRONGHOLD IS IN YOUR
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:25.240
  • MIND, POSSESSING REAL ESTATE
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:28.040
  • THAT USED TO BELONG TO THE
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:29.090
  • KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:30.210
  • PAUL WROTE IN 2 CORINTHIANS
  • 00:04:30.210 --> 00:04:32.070
  • 10:4 THAT THE WEAPONS OF OUR

  • WARFARE ARE MIGHTY IN GOD
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:36.000
  • FOR THE PULLING DOWN OF
  • 00:04:36.000 --> 00:04:37.000
  • STRONGHOLDS.
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:38.030
  • THEY ARE MIGHTY IN GOD
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:39.250
  • BUT THEY ARE OURS TO USE.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:42.060
  • GOD HAS GIVEN US THE ABILITY
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:44.040
  • TO WORK OUT OUR FEELINGS FROM
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:46.290
  • THE PERSPECTIVE OF HIS WORD.
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:49.130
  • TODAY WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:50.220
  • FACTS.
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:51.290
  • NOW FACTS ARE ALTOGETHER
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:53.100
  • DIFFERENT THAN FEELINGS.
  • 00:04:53.100 --> 00:04:55.130
  • FEELINGS ARE VERY FICKLE.

  • FEELINGS RUN HOT.
  • 00:04:56.220 --> 00:04:57.200
  • FEELINGS RUN COLD.
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:04:59.070
  • FACTS, THEY JUST SIMPLY EXIST.

  • TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO DELIVER
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:07.120
  • TO YOU BAD NEWS.
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:09.170
  • FACTS JUST ARRIVE WHEN THEY
  • 00:05:09.170 --> 00:05:11.000
  • ARRIVE.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:12.100
  • FACTS DON'T THINK ABOUT HOW THE

  • FACTS DON'T SYMPATHIZE WITH

  • PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES.
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.150
  • THEY DON'T CONSIDER HOW THIS IS

  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:31.220
  • NOW BECAUSE WE'RE CREATURES OF

  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:52.180
  • TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SEE THAT
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:53.210
  • IT IS TIME TO FACE THE FACTS.
  • 00:05:54.010 --> 00:05:57.010
  • IT'S TIME TO FACE THE FACTS FOR
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:58.190
  • OURSELVES INDIVIDUALLY, FOR OUR

  • NATION, AND FOR THIS WORLD.
  • 00:06:02.030 --> 00:06:04.210
  • WE MAY NOT LIKE THE FACTS THAT
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:06.090
  • WE HAVE TO FACE IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:06:06.090 --> 00:06:08.100
  • BUT I'M NOT HERE TO REPEAT WHAT
  • 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:10.120
  • THE WORLD HAS TO SAY.

  • WORD HAS TO SAY.
  • 00:06:13.120 --> 00:06:15.000
  • AND HIS WORD SAYS THAT OUR

  • FAITH IS THE VICTORY THAT
  • 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:18.280
  • OVERCOMES THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:18.280 --> 00:06:20.050

  • DOCTRINE.
  • 00:06:33.120 --> 00:06:34.240
  • BUT ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:36.050
  • DESIRES, BECAUSE THEY HAVE
  • 00:06:36.050 --> 00:06:38.000
  • ITCHING EARS, THEY WILL HEAP UP
  • 00:06:38.000 --> 00:06:40.080
  • FOR THEMSELVES TEACHERS, AND
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:42.120
  • THEY WILL TURN THEIR EARS AWAY
  • 00:06:42.120 --> 00:06:44.290
  • FROM THE TRUTH, AND BE TURNED
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:47.010
  • ASIDE TO FABLES.
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:49.110
  • HEAVENLY FATHER, LET YOUR WORD
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:51.260
  • COME ALIVE IN OUR HEARTS TODAY.
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:54.180
  • HELP US TO SEE HOW THIS TRUTH
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:57.080
  • SHINES LIGHT INTO EVERY SOUL IN
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:59.090
  • THIS ROOM.
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:00.210
  • AND LET US EMBRACE TRUTH, AS WE
  • 00:07:00.210 --> 00:07:03.060
  • FACE THE FACTS TODAY.
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:05.190
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:07:05.190 --> 00:07:06.230
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:08.000
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:07:08.000 --> 00:07:09.000
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:09.220
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:13.060
  • 2 TIMOTHY 4 IS A LETTER THAT IS
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:15.240
  • WRITTEN TO A YOUNG PASTOR 2.015
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:19.030
  • YEARS AGO IN THE 1ST CENTURY.
  • 00:07:19.090 --> 00:07:22.090
  • WHAT PAUL WRITES TO HIM IS AN
  • 00:07:22.090 --> 00:07:23.290
  • OLD PROBLEM AND IT IS A NEW
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:26.130
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:07:26.130 --> 00:07:28.010
  • HE SAYS, TIMOTHY, WHEN YOU GO
  • 00:07:28.010 --> 00:07:29.170
  • TO YOUR PULPIT, I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.040
  • PREACH THE WORD.
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:33.130
  • I DON'T WANT YOU TO DO ANYTHING
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:34.160
  • OTHER THAN DECLARE TRUTH,
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:36.050
  • BECAUSE THERE'S GOING TO COME A
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:37.080
  • TIME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE
  • 00:07:37.080 --> 00:07:39.060
  • TRUTH.
  • 00:07:39.060 --> 00:07:39.260
  • BUT PEOPLE WILL LOOK FOR
  • 00:07:39.260 --> 00:07:41.000
  • SOMEONE TO TELL THEM WHAT THEY
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:42.170
  • WANT TO HEAR, NOT WHAT THEY
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:44.000
  • NEED TO HEAR.
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:45.280
  • AND WHEN THEY GET TO THIS
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:46.230
  • POINT, THEY WOULD RATHER
  • 00:07:46.230 --> 00:07:47.260
  • EMBRACE A FAIRY TALE, A FABLE,
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:51.090
  • RATHER THAN HEAR TRUTHS.
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:54.030
  • WELL I ASSURE YOU, IF THAT WAS
  • 00:07:54.030 --> 00:07:55.240
  • A WARNING TO A PASTOR 2.000
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:57.170
  • YEARS AGO, IT'S THE HEADLINES
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.220
  • OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN TODAY.
  • 00:07:59.220 --> 00:08:02.040
  • WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT WOULD
  • 00:08:02.040 --> 00:08:03.070
  • RATHER EMBRACE FAIRY TALES AND
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:05.150
  • MADE-UP STORIES THAN LISTEN
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:07.160
  • TO TRUTH AND EMBRACE THE FACTS.
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:10.250
  • WE WOULD RATHER HEAR THE FABLE
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:12.230
  • THAT WE, WE CAN MAKE AMERICA
  • 00:08:13.210 --> 00:08:16.210
  • GREAT AGAIN.
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.170
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:20.110
  • "WE" CAN'T DO ANYTHING APART
  • 00:08:20.110 --> 00:08:23.070
  • FROM GOD.
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:24.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:29.150
  • JESUS SAID SO HIMSELF IN
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:31.100
  • JOHN 15.
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:32.230
  • HE SAID: APART FROM ME, YOU CAN
  • 00:08:32.230 --> 00:08:35.010
  • DO NOTHING.
  • 00:08:35.010 --> 00:08:37.130
  • SAYING THAT "WE" CAN DO IT IS
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:39.100
  • EMBRACING A FABLE.
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:40.240
  • SAYING THAT "HE" CAN DO IT IS
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:42.150
  • FACING A FACT.
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:44.160
  • WE EMBRACE THE FABLE THAT IN
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:46.200
  • OUR SOCIETY, WE WANT SUCCESS
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:48.140
  • WITHOUT STRUGGLE.
  • 00:08:48.140 --> 00:08:49.270
  • WE WANT TO BELIEVE THAT GREAT
  • 00:08:49.270 --> 00:08:51.080
  • ACCOMPLISHMENT CAN BE ACHIEVED
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:53.000
  • WITHOUT PUTTING FORTH GREAT
  • 00:08:53.000 --> 00:08:54.190
  • EFFORT.
  • 00:08:54.190 --> 00:08:55.070
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS, IN ORDER TO
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:57.050
  • ACHIEVE, YOU HAVE TO SACRIFICE.
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:09:00.230
  • WE DON'T UNDERSTAND OR WE ARE
  • 00:09:00.230 --> 00:09:02.100
  • WILLING TO IGNORE THE FACT THAT
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:04.100
  • EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE IN OUR
  • 00:09:04.100 --> 00:09:06.110
  • CULTURE TODAY, IT COSTS SOMEONE
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:08.290
  • WHO CAME BEFORE US GREATLY.
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:12.030
  • WE TELL OURSELVES THAT WE WANT
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:13.100
  • OUR CHILDREN TO HAVE BETTER
  • 00:09:13.100 --> 00:09:14.210
  • THAN WE DO.
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.050
  • BUT IN ORDER FOR THEM TO HAVE
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:17.030
  • BETTER THAN WHAT WE HAVE, WE
  • 00:09:17.030 --> 00:09:18.210
  • MUST MAKE THE DECISION TO
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:20.070
  • SACRIFICE TODAY FOR THEIR
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:22.020
  • TOMORROW, OR WE ARE GOING TO
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:23.240
  • HAND THEM SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:09:23.240 --> 00:09:25.140
  • BANKRUPT AND VOID.
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:27.180
  • THE FACT IS THIS; THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:28.260
  • SAYS: BLESSED IS THE NATION
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:30.270
  • WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD.
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:32.000
  • AND THE TRUTH IS THAT HAS
  • 00:09:32.000 --> 00:09:33.110
  • NOT DESCRIBED THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:35.220
  • FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:09:35.220 --> 00:09:37.230
  • HE'S NOT OUR LORD WHENEVER WE
  • 00:09:37.230 --> 00:09:40.110
  • CAN MURDER 50 MILLION CHILDREN
  • 00:09:40.110 --> 00:09:42.090
  • IN ABORTION CLINICS AND CALL IT
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:44.070
  • "A CHOICE."
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.230
  • HE'S NOT OUR LORD WHEN WE
  • 00:09:45.230 --> 00:09:47.180
  • DEFILE THE FAMILY WITH
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.080
  • SELFISHNESS AND PERVERSION.
  • 00:09:49.080 --> 00:09:51.210
  • IN SELFISHNESS, WE HAVE
  • 00:09:51.210 --> 00:09:53.000
  • DECIMATED THE FOUNDATION OF
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:54.210
  • SOCIETY WITH DIVORCE DECREES
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:56.270
  • THAT SAY, "IRRECONCILABLE
  • 00:09:56.270 --> 00:09:58.090
  • DIFFERENCES."
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:09:59.120
  • IN PERVERSION, WE'VE ALLOWED A
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:00.260
  • COURT TO REDEFINE WHAT MARRIAGE
  • 00:10:00.260 --> 00:10:03.040
  • SHOULD BE.
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:03.260
  • IT'S NO LONGER THE BIBLICAL
  • 00:10:03.260 --> 00:10:05.060
  • DEFINITION; IT'S NOW ANY
  • 00:10:05.060 --> 00:10:06.260
  • DEFINITION THAT WE CHOOSE.
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:09.110
  • HE'S NOT OUR LORD WHEN WE CAN
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:10.250
  • GIVE TO OUR CHILDREN THOUSANDS
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:12.230
  • OF DOLLARS OF TECHNOLOGY TO
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:14.100
  • KEEP THEM PREOCCUPIED, BUT WE
  • 00:10:14.100 --> 00:10:16.060
  • WILL NOT TAKE THE TIME TO TEACH
  • 00:10:16.060 --> 00:10:17.240
  • THEM TEN SIMPLE COMMANDMENTS.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:23.270 --> 00:10:26.270
  • CHURCH, IT'S TIME TO FACE THE

  • FACTS.
  • 00:10:29.030 --> 00:10:29.280
  • IF WE ARE GOING TO MAKE AMERICA
  • 00:10:29.280 --> 00:10:31.250
  • GREAT AGAIN, THEN WE HAVE GOT
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:33.280
  • TO PUT GOD FIRST AGAIN, NOT
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:36.100
  • JUST FIRST ON A STICKER, OR NOT
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:38.140
  • JUST FIRST IN A CAMPAIGN.
  • 00:10:38.140 --> 00:10:40.160
  • HE MUST FIRST BECOME THE FIRST
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:42.190
  • AND ONLY IN OUR LIVES WHERE WE
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:45.000
  • SAY, NOT MY WILL BUT THINE BE
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:47.010
  • DONE.
  • 00:10:47.010 --> 00:10:47.200
  • HE MUST BE FIRST IN OUR

  • CHURCHES, IN WHICH THE CHURCH
  • 00:10:55.060 --> 00:10:57.010
  • OF THE LIVING GOD IS WILLING TO
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:10:58.210
  • DECLARE THE TRUTH OF HIS LIVING
  • 00:10:58.210 --> 00:11:00.130
  • WORD AND NOT BE ASHAMED OF THE
  • 00:11:00.130 --> 00:11:02.150
  • GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:02.150 --> 00:11:04.120
  • HE MUST BE FIRST IN OUR
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:05.180
  • SCHOOLHOUSES.
  • 00:11:05.180 --> 00:11:06.220
  • FOR WITHOUT THE FEAR OF GOD,
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:08.120
  • THERE IS NO KNOWLEDGE OR WISDOM
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:09.260
  • FOUND.
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:10.190
  • HE MUST BE FIRST IN OUR
  • 00:11:10.190 --> 00:11:11.240
  • COURTHOUSES, BECAUSE WE CANNOT
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:13.250
  • TALK ABOUT TRUTH AND JUSTICE
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:15.210
  • UNTIL WE HUMBLY BOW OUR KNEE
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:17.240
  • BEFORE THE GOD OF ALL TRUTH,
  • 00:11:17.240 --> 00:11:19.180
  • AND SAY THAT WE, THE PEOPLE OF
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:21.130
  • THE UNITED STATES, ARE ONE
  • 00:11:21.130 --> 00:11:23.090
  • NATION UNDER GOD AGAIN!
  • 00:11:23.160 --> 00:11:26.160
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:11:30.140 --> 00:11:33.140
  • HE MUST BE FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:37.050
  • BECAUSE HE IS EITHER LORD OF
  • 00:11:37.050 --> 00:11:38.200
  • ALL OR NOT AT ALL.
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:41.180
  • HE SAID VERY CLEARLY: I WILL
  • 00:11:41.180 --> 00:11:43.150
  • NOT SHARE MY GLORY WITH ANYONE.
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:48.070
  • HE WON'T SHARE HIS GLORY WITH
  • 00:11:48.070 --> 00:11:49.220
  • YOU, NOT A MAN, NOT A WOMAN,
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:52.130
  • NOT ANY CREATED BEING.
  • 00:11:52.130 --> 00:11:54.110
  • HE WILL NOT SHARE HIS GLORY
  • 00:11:54.110 --> 00:11:56.010
  • WITH A POLITICAL PARTY.
  • 00:11:56.010 --> 00:11:57.260
  • HE IS NOT A RIGHT-LEANING GOD
  • 00:11:57.260 --> 00:11:59.250
  • OR A LEFT-LEANING GOD OR A
  • 00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:01.260
  • SINISTROUS GOD.
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.010
  • HE IS GOD ON HIGH WHERE HE SITS
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:05.020
  • UPON THE THRONE, AND HE RULES
  • 00:12:05.020 --> 00:12:07.160
  • IN GRACE AND TRUTH.
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:09.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:09.260 --> 00:12:10.180
  • HE WILL NOT SHARE HIS GLORY
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:12.200
  • WITH A DENOMINATION OR AN
  • 00:12:12.200 --> 00:12:13.280
  • ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.060
  • HIS GLORY IS HIS ALONE.
  • 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:19.000
  • WE WANT GREATNESS.
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:20.200
  • WE MUST EMBRACE THE FACT THAT
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:21.270
  • HE IS THE SOURCE OF GREATNESS;
  • 00:12:21.270 --> 00:12:24.120
  • THAT IT IS HE WHO MADE US AND
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:25.240
  • NO WE OURSELVES; THAT HE IS THE
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:27.240
  • ONE WHO IS WORTHY OF PRAISE.
  • 00:12:27.240 --> 00:12:29.260
  • BECAUSE IF WE DO NOT PUT GOD
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:31.180
  • FIRST, THEN WE, AS A NATION,
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:33.280
  • WILL NOT LAST.
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:36.200
  • IT'S TIME TO FACE THE FACTS.
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:39.130
  • WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:40.110
  • THERE'S A DIFFERENCE IN THIS
  • 00:12:40.110 --> 00:12:41.130
  • WORLD BETWEEN THE KNOWLEDGE OF
  • 00:12:41.130 --> 00:12:43.260
  • TRUTH AND FACTS.
  • 00:12:43.260 --> 00:12:46.150
  • MOST PEOPLE PUT FACTS AND
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:48.010
  • KNOWLEDGE IN THE SAME EQUATION.
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:49.140
  • BUT THEY'RE TWO TOTALLY
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:50.120
  • DIFFERENT THINGS.
  • 00:12:50.120 --> 00:12:52.020
  • THE DEFINITION OF A FACT IS
  • 00:12:52.020 --> 00:12:53.230
  • SOMETHING THAT IS.
  • 00:12:53.230 --> 00:12:55.230
  • IT'S JUST THERE.
  • 00:12:55.230 --> 00:12:56.280
  • THERE'S NOT MUCH YOU CAN DO
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:57.250
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:59.070
  • NOW KNOWLEDGE IS WHAT YOU DO
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:02.040
  • WITH THE FACTS THAT YOU FACE.
  • 00:13:02.040 --> 00:13:04.240
  • I'LL GIVE YOU A VERY CLEAR
  • 00:13:04.240 --> 00:13:05.290
  • ILLUSTRATION TO HELP YOU
  • 00:13:05.290 --> 00:13:06.280
  • UNDERSTAND THIS.
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:07.210
  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED
  • 00:13:07.210 --> 00:13:08.250
  • TO ME VERY EARLY IN MY
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:10.010
  • EXISTENCE.
  • 00:13:10.010 --> 00:13:11.080
  • I HAD NO INFLUENCE OVER ITS
  • 00:13:11.080 --> 00:13:12.170
  • OUTCOME.
  • 00:13:12.170 --> 00:13:13.120
  • IT'S JUST A STATE OF BEING THAT
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:14.270
  • I HAVE TO LIVE WITH.
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:16.060
  • AND THAT FACT IS THIS; I AM NOT
  • 00:13:16.160 --> 00:13:19.160
  • TALL.
  • 00:13:19.160 --> 00:13:20.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:20.290 --> 00:13:22.200
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:27.260
  • I COULD GIVE YOU THE
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:31.160
  • GENERATIONAL HISTORY OF THIS
  • 00:13:31.160 --> 00:13:33.050
  • PROBLEM, BUT IT WOULDN'T BE
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:34.210
  • WORTH LISTENING TO.
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:36.110 --> 00:13:37.200
  • NOW HERE'S THE FACT; I'M NOT
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:39.110
  • TALL.
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:41.020
  • HERE'S WHAT KNOWLEDGE DOES WITH
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:42.190
  • THE FACT; FIRST, I WEAR BOOTS.
  • 00:13:42.230 --> 00:13:45.230
  • THAT GIVES ME ONE INCH.
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:47.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:47.130 --> 00:13:48.240
  • I COMB MY HAIR A CERTAIN WAY.
  • 00:13:48.240 --> 00:13:50.150
  • THAT GIVES ME A HALF AN INCH.
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:52.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:52.180 --> 00:13:53.170
  • I ROUND UP.
  • 00:13:53.170 --> 00:13:56.050
  • SO WHENEVER YOU TAKE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:57.190
  • AND YOU PUT IT WITH THE FACT
  • 00:13:57.190 --> 00:13:58.210
  • THAT I'M NOT TALL, MY BOOTS, MY
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:01.120
  • HAIR, AND MY ROUNDING MAKE 5'11
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:03.210
  • INTO 6'1, AND I FEEL BETTER.
  • 00:14:03.210 --> 00:14:06.210
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:09.270
  • SO THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:14.040
  • BETWEEN FACT AND KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:17.100
  • KNOWLEDGE IS WHAT YOU DO WITH
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:19.120
  • THE FACTS.
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:21.100
  • NOW ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE
  • 00:14:21.100 --> 00:14:22.140
  • HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IN THIS
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.230
  • WORLD, ONE OF THE REASONS WHY
  • 00:14:23.230 --> 00:14:25.000
  • OUR SOCIETY IS SO UPSIDE DOWN
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:27.160
  • IS BECAUSE WE ARE ALWAYS
  • 00:14:27.160 --> 00:14:28.270
  • LEARNING MORE AND MORE FACTS,
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:31.000
  • BUT WE'RE NOT GROWING IN THE
  • 00:14:31.000 --> 00:14:32.130
  • KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH.
  • 00:14:32.130 --> 00:14:35.120
  • WE LEARN FACTS ALL OF THE
  • 00:14:35.120 --> 00:14:37.030
  • TIME.
  • 00:14:37.030 --> 00:14:38.270
  • BUT WE HAVE NO RESPECT OR
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:40.080
  • REVERENCE FOR GOD, WHICH IS
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:41.150
  • WHERE KNOWLEDGE IS FOUND.
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:43.220
  • PROVERBS 1:7, IT SAYS: THE
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:45.180
  • FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE
  • 00:14:45.180 --> 00:14:46.170
  • BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:14:46.170 --> 00:14:49.010
  • DO YOU KNOW WHY OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:14:49.010 --> 00:14:50.130
  • ARE GRADUATING FROM SCHOOLS AND
  • 00:14:50.130 --> 00:14:52.060
  • THEY ABSOLUTELY KNOW DIP?
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:57.000
  • I APOLOGIZE, I CAN'T EVEN GIVE
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:14:58.210
  • THEM "ZIP."
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:15:00.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:01.190
  • SERIOUSLY, ASK THEM WHO THE
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:03.170
  • CHARACTERS ARE ON THEIR
  • 00:15:03.170 --> 00:15:04.210
  • FAVORITE REALITY TV SHOW,
  • 00:15:04.210 --> 00:15:06.000
  • THEY'LL SPIT IT OUT AT YOU JUST
  • 00:15:06.000 --> 00:15:07.070
  • THAT FAST.
  • 00:15:07.070 --> 00:15:08.290
  • ASK THEM WHO THE VICE PRESIDENT
  • 00:15:08.290 --> 00:15:10.140
  • IS, AND THEY GO, UH, I THINK
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:12.150
  • HE'S THE OLD GUY.
  • 00:15:13.090 --> 00:15:16.090
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:16.270
  • OR IS THAT A TRICK QUESTION?
  • 00:15:16.270 --> 00:15:18.070
  • OH, NO.
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:19.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:21.020
  • WHY CAN'T WE EDUCATE THEM?
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:25.160
  • BECAUSE THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.070
  • THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:29.100
  • UNTIL WE PUT REVERENCE AND
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:31.080
  • RESPECT BACK INTO SOCIETY,
  • 00:15:31.170 --> 00:15:34.170
  • WE'RE NOT EVER GOING TO HAVE AN
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:36.080
  • EDUCATION THAT'S WORTH KEEPING.
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:39.080
  • WHEN YOU HAVE FACTS WITHOUT
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:40.190
  • KNOWLEDGE, YOU HAVE NO
  • 00:15:40.190 --> 00:15:41.250
  • FOUNDATION TO BUILD TRUTH UPON.
  • 00:15:41.250 --> 00:15:44.210
  • AND WHAT YOU BEGIN TO DO WITH
  • 00:15:44.210 --> 00:15:45.240
  • YOUR FACTS IS YOU BEGIN TO BEND
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:47.150
  • THEM, AND DISTORT THEM, AND
  • 00:15:47.150 --> 00:15:48.270
  • PERVERT THEM UNTIL YOU CAN FIT
  • 00:15:48.270 --> 00:15:51.070
  • THEM INTO WHAT YOU THINK IS
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:53.060
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:15:53.060 --> 00:15:54.190
  • THAT'S WHY WE LIVE IN A
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:55.170
  • SOCIETY WHERE AN INDIVIDUAL CAN
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:57.000
  • WAKE UP FEELING LIKE THEY'RE
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:58.120
  • THE WRONG GENDER.
  • 00:15:58.120 --> 00:15:59.190
  • AND WE DECIDE THAT THEIR FACTS
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:01.170
  • ARE TRUE, AND NOW THEY NEED TO
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:03.000
  • CHANGE, BECAUSE YOU HAVE FACTS
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:06.240
  • WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE AND THAT'S
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:08.100
  • HOW YOU BEND YOUR REALITY.
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:11.260
  • THIS IS HOW ROMANS 1:25 SAYS:
  • 00:16:11.260 --> 00:16:14.070
  • THEY EXCHANGE THE TRUTH OF GOD
  • 00:16:14.070 --> 00:16:16.230
  • FOR A LIE.
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:17.140
  • THEY SERVE THE CREATURE RATHER
  • 00:16:17.140 --> 00:16:19.180
  • THAN THE CREATOR.
  • 00:16:19.180 --> 00:16:21.140
  • THEY OBTAIN FACT WITHOUT THE
  • 00:16:21.140 --> 00:16:22.240
  • KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
  • 00:16:22.240 --> 00:16:24.100
  • AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S WOVEN
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:25.230
  • DOWN INTO THE NATURE OF MAN.
  • 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:27.110
  • IT'S OUR TENDENCY.
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:28.180
  • EACH AND EVERY HUMAN BEING IS
  • 00:16:28.180 --> 00:16:30.110
  • BORN WITH IT.
  • 00:16:30.110 --> 00:16:31.040
  • THIS IS WHY ISAIAH, THE PROPHET
  • 00:16:31.040 --> 00:16:32.220
  • SAID: ALL WE LIKE SHEEP HAVE
  • 00:16:32.220 --> 00:16:34.280
  • GONE ASTRAY.
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:35.230
  • WE EACH TURN TO OUR OWN WAY.
  • 00:16:35.230 --> 00:16:37.290
  • YOU WANT TO LIVE LIKE YOU WANT
  • 00:16:37.290 --> 00:16:39.130
  • TO LIVE, AND I WANT TO LIVE
  • 00:16:39.130 --> 00:16:40.210
  • LIKE I WANT TO LIVE.
  • 00:16:40.210 --> 00:16:42.010
  • AND IF IT'S RIGHT FOR ME,
  • 00:16:42.010 --> 00:16:43.050
  • THAT'S FINE.
  • 00:16:43.050 --> 00:16:43.280
  • AND IF IT'S RIGHT FOR YOU,
  • 00:16:43.280 --> 00:16:44.270
  • THAT'S GOOD TOO, BECAUSE WE
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:46.130
  • SHOULD ALL BE ABLE TO RESPECT
  • 00:16:46.130 --> 00:16:47.260
  • EACH OTHER'S PERSPECTIVES AND
  • 00:16:47.260 --> 00:16:49.060
  • COEXIST; RIGHT?
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:51.200
  • WRONG!
  • 00:16:51.200 --> 00:16:53.150
  • THE REASON IT'S WRONG IS
  • 00:16:53.150 --> 00:16:54.130
  • BECAUSE I AM NOT AN OMNIPOTENT,
  • 00:16:54.130 --> 00:16:56.070
  • ALL-SUFFICIENT, SELF-SUSTAINING
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:16:57.240
  • BEING.
  • 00:16:57.240 --> 00:16:59.020
  • I AM CREATED.
  • 00:16:59.020 --> 00:17:00.060
  • IT IS HE WHO MADE ME AND NOT ME
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:02.010
  • MYSELF.
  • 00:17:02.010 --> 00:17:03.020
  • AND IT IS HE WHO MADE YOU AND
  • 00:17:03.020 --> 00:17:04.290
  • NOT WE OURSELVES.
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:06.050
  • AND AS LONG AS WE ARE CREATED
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:08.000
  • BEINGS, WE HAVE TO LIVE
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:09.160
  • ACCORDING TO THE CREATOR'S PLAN.
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.160
  • OTHERWISE, ALL WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:13.000
  • FACE IN THIS LIFE IS STRUGGLE.
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:16.180
  • UNTIL WE DO IT GOD'S WAY
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:19.060
  • INSTEAD OF OUR WAY, WE WILL NOT
  • 00:17:19.060 --> 00:17:21.010
  • KNOW WHAT GOOD THINGS GOD HAS
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:22.220
  • IN STORE FOR US.
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:24.190
  • THE FACT IS YOUR LIFE WILL NOT
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:26.040
  • KNOW SATISFACTION UNTIL YOU
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:28.030
  • GIVE GOD THE OPPORTUNITY TO
  • 00:17:28.030 --> 00:17:29.230
  • BECOME THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:29.230 --> 00:17:32.040
  • YOUR MARRIAGE WILL NOT BE THE

  • BLESSED UNION IT CAN BE UNTIL
  • 00:17:33.270 --> 00:17:35.290
  • YOU SUBMIT TO GOD'S PLAN FOR
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.210
  • YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:39.060
  • GOD HAS A PLAN FOR EVERY

  • HIS PLAN IS HUSBAND, YOU ARE
  • 00:17:41.110 --> 00:17:43.260
  • THE HEAD OF THAT HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:17:43.260 --> 00:17:45.080
  • YOU ARE THE TO LEAD THAT
  • 00:17:45.080 --> 00:17:46.150
  • HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:17:46.150 --> 00:17:47.060
  • YOU ARE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF
  • 00:17:47.060 --> 00:17:48.220
  • THAT HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:17:48.220 --> 00:17:49.190
  • WIFE, YOU ARE TO COMPLEMENT
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:51.150
  • THAT HUSBAND, NOT COMPETE WITH

  • HIM.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:58.160 --> 00:18:01.180
  • YOUR FAMILY WILL NEVER BE
  • 00:18:01.180 --> 00:18:03.140
  • BLESSED UNTIL YOU FULFILL GOD'S
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:05.040
  • PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR THE
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:06.030
  • FAMILY.
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:06.270
  • WHAT'S GOD'S PLAN AND PURPOSE
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:08.050
  • FOR THE FAMILY?
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:09.030
  • HIS PLAN AND PURPOSE IS,
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:10.110
  • PARENTS, RAISE YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:12.230
  • SAY THAT WITH ME, PARENTS,
  • 00:18:12.230 --> 00:18:14.170
  • RAISE YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:15.240
  • HE DIDN'T SAY, PARENTS,
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:17.040
  • BEFRIEND YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.170
  • HE DIDN'T SAY, PARENTS,
  • 00:18:18.170 --> 00:18:19.220
  • ENTERTAIN YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:19.220 --> 00:18:21.090
  • HE DIDN'T SAY, PARENTS,
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:22.140
  • OUTSOURCE YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:22.140 --> 00:18:24.010
  • HE SAID, PARENTS, RAISE YOUR
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:25.270
  • CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:26.200
  • WHAT DOES "RAISING" MEAN?
  • 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:28.000
  • "RAISING" MEANS SOMETIMES YOU
  • 00:18:28.000 --> 00:18:29.190
  • LOOK THEM RIGHT IN THE EYE AND
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:30.200
  • SAY, I LOVE YOU, BUT NO.
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:33.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:37.040 --> 00:18:40.040
  • GOD'S PLAN FOR THE FAMILY IS
  • 00:18:40.040 --> 00:18:43.020
  • NOT ONLY THAT PARENTS WOULD
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:44.040
  • RAISE THEIR CHILDREN BUT THAT
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:45.240
  • CHILDREN WOULD HONOR THEIR
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:46.270
  • FATHER AND MOTHER.
  • 00:18:46.270 --> 00:18:47.220
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:48.150
  • THAT MEANS, CHILD, WHEN HE
  • 00:18:48.150 --> 00:18:49.220
  • TELLS YOU "NO,"
  • 00:18:49.220 --> 00:18:50.160
  • YOU SAY, "YES, SIR."
  • 00:18:51.080 --> 00:18:54.080
  • WHAT?
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:55.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:57.090
  • HASHTAG MEAN PREACHER.
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:59.160
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:02.280
  • HASHTAG DON'T CARE.
  • 00:19:03.200 --> 00:19:06.200
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:06.200 --> 00:19:08.180
  • WHY IS IT THIS WAY?
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:12.080
  • BECAUSE THE FACT IS THAT'S HOW
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:14.160
  • THE CREATOR DESIGNED IT.
  • 00:19:14.160 --> 00:19:16.210
  • AND UNTIL WE DO WHAT HE
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:18.040
  • DESIGNED, WE'RE NEVER GOING TO
  • 00:19:18.040 --> 00:19:19.230
  • BE SATISFIED.
  • 00:19:19.230 --> 00:19:21.250
  • SO HOW DO WE MAKE THE CHANGE?
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:23.290
  • HOW DO WE DO IT GOD'S WAY?
  • 00:19:23.290 --> 00:19:25.090
  • THE TRUTH IS YOU CAN'T DO IT BY
  • 00:19:25.090 --> 00:19:27.070
  • YOURSELF; HE HAS TO DO IT FOR
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:29.220
  • YOU.
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:30.270
  • YOU MUST BE WILLING TO ALLOW
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:32.050
  • GOD TO MAKE YOU WHAT HE
  • 00:19:32.050 --> 00:19:33.120
  • PROMISED YOU, WHICH IS A NEW
  • 00:19:33.120 --> 00:19:34.270
  • CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:19:34.280 --> 00:19:37.280
  • IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17, IT SAYS:
  • 00:19:37.280 --> 00:19:40.020
  • IF ANYONE IS IN CHRIST, THEN HE
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:42.220
  • IS A NEW CREATION.
  • 00:19:42.220 --> 00:19:44.070
  • OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:47.090
  • SAY THAT WITH ME, OLD THINGS
  • 00:19:47.090 --> 00:19:49.210
  • HAVE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:19:49.210 --> 00:19:51.080
  • NOW HOW MANY OF YOU'VE EVER
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:52.010
  • READ IN THE OBITUARY ABOUT
  • 00:19:52.010 --> 00:19:53.080
  • SOMEONE YOU KNEW WHO PASSED
  • 00:19:53.080 --> 00:19:54.140
  • AWAY?
  • 00:19:54.140 --> 00:19:56.090
  • WHEN YOU READ THE NEWS OF THEIR
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:58.070
  • PASSING, DID YOU EXPECT TO
  • 00:19:58.070 --> 00:20:00.000
  • VISIT WITH THEM AGAIN AT THEIR
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:01.250
  • FUNERAL?
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:03.160
  • NO.
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:05.020
  • THEY PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:20:05.020 --> 00:20:06.250
  • THEY'RE GONE.
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:09.000
  • WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT YOU
  • 00:20:09.000 --> 00:20:09.290
  • BEING A NEW CREATURE IS THAT
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:11.230
  • YOUR OLD HABITS, YOUR OLD
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:13.120
  • MOTIVES, YOUR OLD DESIRES,
  • 00:20:13.120 --> 00:20:15.130
  • THEY HAVE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:20:15.240 --> 00:20:18.240
  • WHEN YOU GOT BAPTIZED, THEY
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:20.020
  • WENT INTO A WATERY GRAVE, AND
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:22.000
  • YOUR OLD INSTINCTS AND
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:23.240
  • APPETITES AND DESIRES, THEY GOT
  • 00:20:23.240 --> 00:20:26.020
  • BURIED THERE.
  • 00:20:26.020 --> 00:20:27.000
  • AND A NEW YOU WAS RAISED IN
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:29.090
  • JESUS CHRIST THAT HAS A NEW
  • 00:20:29.090 --> 00:20:31.100
  • HEART, A NEW DESIRE, AND WANTS
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:33.140
  • TO LIVE A NEW LIFE.
  • 00:20:33.140 --> 00:20:35.140
  • HERE'S THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:37.180
  • JUST LIKE IT WAS WHEN YOU WERE
  • 00:20:37.180 --> 00:20:38.260
  • FIRST BORN IN YOUR NATURAL
  • 00:20:38.260 --> 00:20:40.180
  • LIFE, YOU DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:42.060
  • STRENGTH TO SUSTAIN YOURSELF.
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:44.030
  • HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A CHILD ON
  • 00:20:44.030 --> 00:20:45.260
  • THE DAY OF THEIR BIRTH RUN A
  • 00:20:45.260 --> 00:20:47.110
  • WIND SPRINT AND RECITE THE
  • 00:20:47.110 --> 00:20:49.120
  • PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE?
  • 00:20:49.120 --> 00:20:52.080
  • I MEAN I KNOW SOME OF YOU
  • 00:20:52.080 --> 00:20:53.040
  • PEOPLE THINK YOUR KIDS ARE SO
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:54.270
  • ADVANCED.
  • 00:20:54.270 --> 00:20:56.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:20:57.170
  • BUT WE'VE NEVER SEEN A TODDLER
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:20:59.110
  • IN THE OLYMPICS.
  • 00:20:59.110 --> 00:21:01.240
  • WHY?
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:03.080
  • THEY'RE NOT STRONG ENOUGH YET.
  • 00:21:03.080 --> 00:21:05.240
  • AND IT'S THE SAME IN YOUR
  • 00:21:05.240 --> 00:21:06.200
  • SPIRITUAL LIFE.
  • 00:21:06.200 --> 00:21:09.060
  • WHEN YOU BECOME A NEW CREATURE,
  • 00:21:09.060 --> 00:21:10.110
  • YOU ARE A BABE IN CHRIST JESUS,
  • 00:21:10.200 --> 00:21:13.200
  • WHICH IS WHY PETER SAID: THIS
  • 00:21:13.200 --> 00:21:14.280
  • IS THE MILK OF THE WORD.
  • 00:21:15.090 --> 00:21:18.090
  • YOU GROW IN STRENGTH BY TAKING
  • 00:21:18.090 --> 00:21:20.040
  • THE MILK OF THIS WORD AND
  • 00:21:20.040 --> 00:21:21.120
  • ALLOWING IT TO BUILD YOUR FAITH
  • 00:21:21.120 --> 00:21:23.140
  • SO THAT YOUR NATURAL TENDENCY
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:25.050
  • TO GO DIG UP THOSE OLD HABITS
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:27.100
  • THAT GOD BURIED STOPS.
  • 00:21:27.190 --> 00:21:30.190
  • ONE OF PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE IS
  • 00:21:30.190 --> 00:21:32.040
  • WE DON'T GROW IN OUR FAITH, WE
  • 00:21:32.040 --> 00:21:34.030
  • DON'T GROW IN OUR STRENGTH, SO
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:35.120
  • WE GO INTO OUR PAST AND WE DIG
  • 00:21:35.120 --> 00:21:37.020
  • UP WHO WE USED TO BE AND WE
  • 00:21:37.020 --> 00:21:38.130
  • RESURRECT IT.
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:41.090
  • JESUS SIGNED THE OBITUARY TO
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:43.020
  • THE OLD YOU IN HIS BLOOD.
  • 00:21:43.020 --> 00:21:44.280
  • AND WE THROW THE OBITUARY AWAY
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:46.280
  • AND WE DIG UP WHO WE USED TO
  • 00:21:46.280 --> 00:21:48.060
  • BE.
  • 00:21:48.060 --> 00:21:48.190
  • AND WE COMET TO STRUGGLE WITH
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:49.270
  • THE SAME OLD STUFF, WHICH IS
  • 00:21:51.060 --> 00:21:54.060
  • WHY YOU'VE GOT TO BECOME A NEW
  • 00:21:54.060 --> 00:21:56.000
  • CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:21:56.000 --> 00:21:58.290
  • LAST WEEK, WE SAID,
  • 00:21:58.290 --> 00:21:59.240
  • IN ORDER TO DEAL WITH FEELINGS,
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:01.050
  • YOU HAD TO MAKE A DAILY
  • 00:22:01.050 --> 00:22:02.000
  • DECISION.
  • 00:22:02.000 --> 00:22:02.250
  • IT'S THE SAME WHEN YOU DEAL
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.030
  • WITH FACTS.
  • 00:22:04.030 --> 00:22:04.240
  • YOU MUST DIE DAILY.
  • 00:22:04.240 --> 00:22:06.070
  • YOU MUST TAKE UP YOUR CROSS
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:07.180
  • DAILY.
  • 00:22:07.180 --> 00:22:08.080
  • YOU MUST FEAST ON HIS BREAD
  • 00:22:08.080 --> 00:22:09.240
  • DAILY.
  • 00:22:09.240 --> 00:22:10.160
  • YOU MUST KNOW THAT HE IS GIVING
  • 00:22:10.160 --> 00:22:12.030
  • YOU ALL YOU NEED TODAY TO
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:14.230
  • OVERCOME THE WORLD THAT YOU
  • 00:22:14.230 --> 00:22:16.090
  • FACE.
  • 00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:18.120
  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S IN THE
  • 00:22:18.120 --> 00:22:20.010
  • NATURE OF MAN TO CRAVE
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:22.140
  • KNOWLEDGE MORE THAN LIFE.
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:26.100
  • IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:28.150
  • THE FACT IS ADAM STARTED IT.
  • 00:22:29.000 --> 00:22:32.000
  • GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO
  • 00:22:32.000 --> 00:22:32.250
  • GENESIS 2:9.
  • 00:22:32.250 --> 00:22:34.290
  • THERE YOU'LL READ THAT GOD
  • 00:22:34.290 --> 00:22:36.180
  • CREATED THE GARDEN.
  • 00:22:36.180 --> 00:22:37.250
  • AND IN THE GARDEN, HE PUT
  • 00:22:37.250 --> 00:22:39.020
  • EVERY TREE THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:22:39.020 --> 00:22:41.000
  • AND GOOD FOR FOOD.
  • 00:22:41.000 --> 00:22:42.200
  • AND THE BIBLE IN GENESIS 2:9
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:44.260
  • VERY CLEARLY SAYS THAT THERE
  • 00:22:44.260 --> 00:22:46.010
  • WERE TWO DISTINCT TREES.
  • 00:22:46.010 --> 00:22:47.240
  • ONE WAS THE TREE OF LIFE.
  • 00:22:47.240 --> 00:22:50.100
  • IT SAYS THE TREE OF LIFE WAS
  • 00:22:50.100 --> 00:22:51.050
  • THERE.
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:51.210
  • AND THEN IT SAYS: THE TREE OF
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:52.190
  • THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL
  • 00:22:52.190 --> 00:22:53.290
  • WAS THERE.
  • 00:22:53.290 --> 00:22:55.150
  • GENESIS 2:16 AND 17, GOD SAYS
  • 00:22:56.000 --> 00:22:59.000
  • TO ADAM: OF EVERY TREE,
  • 00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:01.080
  • YOU MAY EAT.
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:01.230
  • BUT OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE,
  • 00:23:01.230 --> 00:23:02.270
  • YOU MAY NOT EAT.
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:05.080
  • SO ADAM, IN ESSENCE, HAD A
  • 00:23:05.080 --> 00:23:06.250
  • CHOICE TO MAKE, A CHOICE
  • 00:23:06.250 --> 00:23:08.090
  • BETWEEN LIFE OR A CHOICE
  • 00:23:08.090 --> 00:23:10.050
  • BETWEEN KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:23:10.070 --> 00:23:13.070
  • AND IN GENESIS 3, HE CHOSE
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:14.250
  • KNOWLEDGE OVER LIFE.
  • 00:23:15.040 --> 00:23:18.040
  • AND SO IN YOUR NATURE, THE ONE
  • 00:23:18.040 --> 00:23:19.230
  • THAT YOU WERE BORN WITH, THE
  • 00:23:19.230 --> 00:23:21.030
  • ADAMIC NATURE, YOU HAVE THIS
  • 00:23:21.030 --> 00:23:23.020
  • DESIRE FOR KNOWLEDGE MUCH MORE
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:24.240
  • THAN YOU DO FOR LIFE.
  • 00:23:24.240 --> 00:23:27.150
  • WHY?
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:29.030
  • LOOK AT THIS IMPACT ON THE
  • 00:23:29.030 --> 00:23:30.190
  • WORLD AROUND US.
  • 00:23:30.190 --> 00:23:31.180
  • IF YOU DON'T THINK YOUR DAILY
  • 00:23:31.180 --> 00:23:33.060
  • DECISIONS HAVE GREAT IMPACT,
  • 00:23:33.060 --> 00:23:34.260
  • JUST TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT ADAM
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:36.130
  • DID THE DAY HE DECIDED TO EAT
  • 00:23:36.130 --> 00:23:37.260
  • FROM THAT TREE, MESSED WITH ALL
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:40.290
  • OF US FOR THE REST OF US.
  • 00:23:40.290 --> 00:23:43.070
  • WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN, I
  • 00:23:43.070 --> 00:23:44.110
  • PROMISE ADAM'S IN WITNESS
  • 00:23:44.110 --> 00:23:45.190
  • PROTECTION.
  • 00:23:45.190 --> 00:23:47.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:23:47.060 --> 00:23:49.170
  • THERE WILL BE SOME PREACHERS
  • 00:23:51.070 --> 00:23:54.070
  • LOOKING FOR HIM.
  • 00:23:54.070 --> 00:23:55.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:23:55.210 --> 00:23:57.080
  • HE CHOSE KNOWLEDGE OVER LIFE,
  • 00:23:58.030 --> 00:24:01.050
  • WHICH IS WHY WE KNOW SO MUCH,
  • 00:24:02.020 --> 00:24:05.020
  • BUT WE CAN DO SO LITTLE.
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:08.000
  • WE KNOW HOW TO BUILD CITIES
  • 00:24:08.000 --> 00:24:09.130
  • WITH BUILDINGS THAT ARE
  • 00:24:09.130 --> 00:24:10.050
  • HUNDREDS OF STORIES TALL.
  • 00:24:10.050 --> 00:24:11.240
  • THEY REACH INTO THE HEAVENS.
  • 00:24:11.240 --> 00:24:13.050

  • COMMUNITIES AND HOMES AND
  • 00:24:14.170 --> 00:24:15.250
  • HOUSES, BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:24:15.250 --> 00:24:17.100
  • TO DWELL TOGETHER IN THOSE
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:18.220

  • WE KNOW HOW TO MAKE ONE KERNEL
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:25.250

  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:29.220
  • TO COME.
  • 00:24:29.220 --> 00:24:30.150
  • BUT WE CAN'T FIND A WAY TO GET
  • 00:24:30.150 --> 00:24:31.260
  • THAT FOOD TO PEOPLE WHO STARVE
  • 00:24:31.260 --> 00:24:33.170
  • TO DEATH IN THE WORLD EVERY
  • 00:24:33.170 --> 00:24:34.140
  • DAY.
  • 00:24:34.140 --> 00:24:36.040
  • WE KNOW.
  • 00:24:36.040 --> 00:24:37.010
  • WE KNOW HOW TO MAKE NUCLEAR
  • 00:24:37.010 --> 00:24:38.120
  • BOMBS SO POWERFUL THAT THEY CAN
  • 00:24:38.120 --> 00:24:40.090
  • LITERALLY MELT THE EARTH.
  • 00:24:40.090 --> 00:24:41.200
  • BUT WE CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW TO
