  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: "CONFIDENCE"
  • 00:00:12.270 --> 00:00:15.270
  • ARE TWO WORDS,
  • 00:00:15.270 --> 00:00:17.140
  • "CON" MEANING "WITH"
  • 00:00:17.140 --> 00:00:19.190
  • AND "FAIDO,"
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:20.110
  • WHICH MEANS "FAITH,"
  • 00:00:20.110 --> 00:00:21.190
  • WHICH IS LIVING BY FAITH.
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:23.150
  • THAT'S WHAT CONFIDENCE IS.
  • 00:00:23.150 --> 00:00:25.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:00:25.150 --> 00:00:26.060
  • "WITHOUT FAITH,
  • 00:00:26.060 --> 00:00:27.160
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:00:27.160 --> 00:00:28.070
  • TO PLEASE GOD."
  • 00:00:28.070 --> 00:00:29.000
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:00:29.000 --> 00:00:29.290
  • "WITHOUT FAITH,
  • 00:00:29.290 --> 00:00:31.060
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:00:31.060 --> 00:00:32.030
  • TO PLEASE GOD."
  • 00:00:32.030 --> 00:00:33.090
  • "FAITH IS THE VICTORY,"
  • 00:00:33.090 --> 00:00:34.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:00:34.180 --> 00:00:35.120
  • "THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD."
  • 00:00:35.120 --> 00:00:37.100
  • PUT THOSE TWO VERSES TOGETHER
  • 00:00:37.100 --> 00:00:39.110
  • AND YOU ARE GUARANTEED TO BE
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:41.080
  • VICTORIOUS IN EVERY BATTLE
  • 00:00:41.080 --> 00:00:43.220
  • YOU FIND YOURSELF IN LIFE.
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:45.290
  • FAITH STARTS OUT
  • 00:00:45.290 --> 00:00:47.220
  • BEFORE YOU KNOW HOW IT'S
  • 00:00:47.220 --> 00:00:48.210
  • GOING TO TURN OUT.
  • 00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:50.290
  • IF YOU KNOW THE END
  • 00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:51.260
  • FROM THE BEGINNING,
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.020
  • THAT'S NOT FAITH;
  • 00:00:53.020 --> 00:00:54.210
  • THAT'S JUST DOING SOMETHING.
  • 00:00:54.210 --> 00:00:56.240
  • FAITH DOES NOT DEMAND MIRACLES.
  • 00:00:56.240 --> 00:00:58.290
  • FAITH PRODUCES MIRACLES.
  • 00:00:58.290 --> 00:01:01.100
  • GREAT FAITH IS THE PRODUCT
  • 00:01:01.100 --> 00:01:03.120
  • OF GREAT FIGHTS THAT ARE WON
  • 00:01:03.120 --> 00:01:05.210
  • IN THE ARENA OF LIFE.
  • 00:01:05.210 --> 00:01:07.230
  • THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:08.260
  • LITTLE FAITH AND IT TALKS
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:10.050
  • ABOUT GREAT FAITH.
  • 00:01:10.050 --> 00:01:11.290
  • HOW DO YOU GET FROM LITTLE
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:13.020
  • FAITH TO GREAT FAITH?
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:14.290
  • YOU GET FROM LITTLE FAITH
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:16.080
  • TO GREAT FAITH BY FIGHTING
  • 00:01:16.080 --> 00:01:18.070
  • THIS FIGHT,
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:19.040
  • AND THEN ANOTHER ONE
  • 00:01:19.040 --> 00:01:20.080
  • THAT'S GREATER,
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:21.080
  • AND THEN ANOTHER ONE
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:22.110
  • THAT'S GREATER,
  • 00:01:22.110 --> 00:01:23.100
  • AND ANOTHER ONE THAT'S GREATER.
  • 00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:24.250
  • AND THEY CONTINUOUSLY INCREASE
  • 00:01:24.250 --> 00:01:27.020
  • IN SIZE UNTIL YOU ARE FIGHTING
  • 00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:29.080
  • THE GIANTS.
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:31.250
  • THAT'S WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:01:31.250 --> 00:01:32.180
  • GREAT FAITH IS BORN
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:34.120
  • ON THE BATTLEFIELD OF LIFE.
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:36.160
  • SOMETIMES WHEN YOU'RE VERY
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:38.070
  • EXISTENCE IS BEING THREATENED,
  • 00:01:38.070 --> 00:01:40.270
  • GREAT TESTIMONIES ARE
  • 00:01:40.270 --> 00:01:42.010
  • THE OUTCOME OF GREAT TESTS.
  • 00:01:42.010 --> 00:01:44.210
  • GREAT TRIUMPHS CAN ONLY COME
  • 00:01:44.210 --> 00:01:46.230
  • FROM GREAT TRIALS.
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:48.220
  • EVERY STUMBLING BLOCK CAN
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:50.200
  • BECOME A STEPPINGSTONE.
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:53.070
  • EVERY OPPOSITION CAN BECOME
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:55.190
  • AN OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:57.080
  • FAITH IS NOT BELIEVING THAT GOD
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:59.040
  • CAN DO IT.
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:00.140
  • FAITH IS BELIEVING
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:01.120
  • THAT GOD WILL DO IT,
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:03.090
  • AND HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU,
  • 00:02:03.090 --> 00:02:05.070
  • AND WILL DO IT RIGHT.
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:07.060
  • THAT'S WHAT FAITH IS.
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:08.060
  • GIVE THE LORD A HAND.
  • 00:02:08.060 --> 00:02:09.170
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:14.000
  • THERE ARE 1.000 WAYS
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:16.010
  • TO PLEASE THE LORD,
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:18.200
  • BUT NONE OF THEM WILL WORK
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:20.140
  • WITHOUT FAITH.
  • 00:02:20.140 --> 00:02:22.050
  • FAITH HELPS YOU WALK
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:23.150
  • FEARLESSLY,
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:25.020
  • RUN CONFIDENTLY,
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:26.280
  • AND LIVE VICTORIOUSLY.
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:29.020
  • ALL OF THAT IS RECORDED
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:31.060
  • IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:32.160
  • GOD IS NOT MOVED
  • 00:02:32.160 --> 00:02:33.250
  • BY YOUR EMOTIONS.
  • 00:02:33.250 --> 00:02:35.160
  • GOD IS ONLY MOVED
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:36.270
  • BY YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:02:36.270 --> 00:02:38.220
  • I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE PRAY
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:40.130
  • EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:42.050
  • "OH GOD, PLEASE, PLEASE."
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:46.280
  • GOD HAS SAID HERE
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:48.250
  • HE WILL DO IT.
  • 00:02:48.250 --> 00:02:51.000
  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET OUT
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:53.070
  • OF THE EMOTIONAL STATE AND GET
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:55.180
  • IN THE FAITH DIMENSION,
  • 00:02:55.180 --> 00:02:57.120
  • AND SAY, "GOD, I THANK YOU,
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:59.040
  • YOU ARE DOING IT.
  • 00:02:59.040 --> 00:03:00.220
  • I MAY NOT SEE IT
  • 00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:01.260
  • WITH MY NATURAL EYE,
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:03.130
  • BUT I KNOW IT'S GOING
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:05.090
  • TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:03:05.090 --> 00:03:06.070
  • AND I'M STANDING ON THE FAITH
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:08.050
  • OF THE WORD OF GOD;
  • 00:03:08.050 --> 00:03:09.100
  • IT WILL HAPPEN!"
  • 00:03:09.100 --> 00:03:11.120
  • MAKE THAT HAPPEN!
  • 00:03:11.120 --> 00:03:12.220
  • GIVE THE LORD PRAISE
  • 00:03:12.220 --> 00:03:13.140
  • IN THE HOUSE!
  • 00:03:13.140 --> 00:03:14.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:19.020
  • CONFIDENCE: FAITH
  • 00:03:19.020 --> 00:03:21.080
  • IS NOT INHERITED;
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:22.000
  • IT'S DEVELOPED.
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:23.250
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:24.120
  • "FAITH COMETH BY HEARING,
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:25.230
  • AND HEARING BY THE WORD
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:26.180
  • OF GOD."
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:28.280
  • THE WORD "COMETH" IS A GREEK
  • 00:03:28.280 --> 00:03:30.240
  • CONTINUANCE VERB,
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:32.230
  • MEANING FAITH IS CONTINUING
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:35.000
  • TO GROW IN YOU,
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:36.280
  • PREDICATED ON YOUR OBEDIENCE
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:38.270
  • TO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:40.140
  • WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:42.000
  • AND YOU OBEY IT,
  • 00:03:42.000 --> 00:03:43.200
  • YOU GO FROM GLORY TO GLORY.
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:46.120
  • YOU GROW FROM FIRST GRADE
  • 00:03:46.120 --> 00:03:48.040
  • TO SECOND GRADE,
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:49.050
  • TO THIRD GRADE FAITH,
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:51.010
  • TO MIDDLE SCHOOL,
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:52.050
  • TO HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:03:52.050 --> 00:03:53.140
  • TO GRADUATE SCHOOL.
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:55.090
  • AND NOW YOU ARE REALLY FIGHTING
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:57.020
  • BIG BATTLES.
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:59.270
  • AND YOU'RE NOT CONCERNED
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:02.070
  • BECAUSE YOU AND GOD HAVE
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.120
  • A WORKING RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:05.140
  • YOU ARE BOUND BY YOUR OWN
  • 00:04:05.220 --> 00:04:08.220
  • SELF-IMPOSED LIMITATIONS.
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:13.040
  • I READ THE STORY
  • 00:04:13.040 --> 00:04:13.250
  • OF A GEORGIA SHARECROPPER,
  • 00:04:13.250 --> 00:04:15.250
  • WHO PRESENTED HIMSELF
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:16.210
  • TO HIS DENOMINATIONAL LEADERS
  • 00:04:16.210 --> 00:04:19.050
  • TO BE ORDAINED AS A PASTOR.
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:21.150
  • AND THE ORDINATION COMMITTEE
  • 00:04:21.150 --> 00:04:22.180
  • ASKED HIM; SAID,
  • 00:04:22.180 --> 00:04:23.090
  • "DO YOU KNOW THE BIBLE
  • 00:04:23.090 --> 00:04:24.060
  • WELL ENOUGH TO PREACH IT?"
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:26.070
  • HE SAID, "WELL, YES, SIR."
  • 00:04:26.070 --> 00:04:28.000
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:28.190
  • "BUT WELL YOU'RE
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:29.110
  • A SHARECROPPER FARMER.
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:30.280
  • YOU HAVE NO TRAINING."
  • 00:04:30.280 --> 00:04:32.070
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:04:32.070 --> 00:04:32.220
  • "WELL I'VE READ THE BIBLE."
  • 00:04:32.220 --> 00:04:34.160
  • SO THE DENOMINATIONAL LEADER
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:35.200
  • SAID,
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.100
  • "WELL TELL US WHAT PART
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.010
  • OF THE BIBLE YOU KNOW BEST."
  • 00:04:37.010 --> 00:04:37.290
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:04:37.290 --> 00:04:38.160
  • "WELL I KNOW THE BOOK
  • 00:04:38.160 --> 00:04:39.240
  • OF THE PARABLES THE BEST."
  • 00:04:39.240 --> 00:04:41.290
  • "WHAT?"
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:42.220
  • "THE BOOK OF THE PARABLES?"
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:44.060
  • THERE'S NO SUCH THING,
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:44.240
  • OF COURSE,
  • 00:04:44.240 --> 00:04:45.230
  • FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:46.190
  • FANNING YOUR BIBLE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:04:46.190 --> 00:04:48.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:50.270 --> 00:04:53.270
  • YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:04:53.270 --> 00:04:54.280
  • FROM THIS PLATFORM.
  • 00:04:54.280 --> 00:04:56.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:04:58.080
  • SO HE SAID, "YES,
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:04:59.030
  • THE BOOK OF THE PARABLES."
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:04:59.250
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:00.150
  • "YES, LET'S HEAR IT."
  • 00:05:00.150 --> 00:05:01.200
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:05:01.200 --> 00:05:02.050
  • "WELL THERE WAS A GOOD
  • 00:05:02.050 --> 00:05:03.040
  • SAMARITAN GOING DOWN
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:04.090
  • FROM JERUSALEM TO JERICHO.
  • 00:05:04.090 --> 00:05:06.110
  • AND HE FELL AMONG THORNS.
  • 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:08.100
  • AND THE THORNS SPRANG UP
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:09.210
  • AND CHOKED HIM ALMOST HALF
  • 00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:11.040
  • TO DEATH."
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.130
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:13.070
  • "I WILL ARISE."
  • 00:05:13.070 --> 00:05:14.100
  • AND HE AROSE
  • 00:05:14.100 --> 00:05:15.050
  • AND HE CAME TO A TREE.
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:16.290
  • HE HUNG IN THE LIMBS OF THAT
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:17.290
  • TREE FOR 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS.
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:20.160
  • AND THE RAVENS CAME
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:21.190
  • AND FED HIM.
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.110
  • DELILAH SAW HIM AND SHE CAME
  • 00:05:23.110 --> 00:05:24.210
  • ALONG WITH A PAIR OF SCISSORS
  • 00:05:24.210 --> 00:05:26.150
  • AND CUT OFF HIS HAIR,
  • 00:05:26.150 --> 00:05:27.290
  • AND HE FELL ON THE GROUND.
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:29.190
  • IT WAS STONY GROUND.
  • 00:05:29.190 --> 00:05:31.120
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:31.260
  • "I WILL ARISE."
  • 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:32.200
  • AND HE AROSE
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:33.120
  • AND HE CAME TO A WALL.

  • YOU PLAY.
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:35.240
  • BUT WITH PERSISTENCE,
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:37.140
  • YOU WILL BE VICTORIOUS.
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:39.170
  • PRESS ON.

  • PUSH FORWARD.
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:41.230
  • A TEMPORARY SETBACK DOES NOT
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:43.180

  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:46.000
  • THE FACT THAT YOU'RE HAVING
  • 00:16:46.000 --> 00:16:46.280
  • TROUBLE IS LIVING PROOF THAT

  • BUT YOU CAN DO SOMETHING
  • 00:17:25.140 --> 00:17:27.220
  • AT ONCE.
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:29.080
  • MAKE A DECISION
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:31.000

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:42.110 --> 00:17:43.040
  • GET IT?
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:44.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:44.280
  • OH, I HAVEN'T MADE UP MY MIND.
  • 00:17:44.280 --> 00:17:46.120
  • YES, YOU HAVE.
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:47.160
  • YOU'VE MADE UP YOUR MIND TO DO

  • FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS.
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:54.110
  • MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO DO
  • 00:17:54.110 --> 00:17:55.130
  • SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:57.050
  • MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO ACHIEVE
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:58.250
  • SOMETHING THAT GOD IS GIVING
  • 00:17:58.250 --> 00:18:00.100
  • YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO.
  • 00:18:00.100 --> 00:18:03.010
  • HOW DO WE MAINTAIN CONFIDENCE?
  • 00:18:03.010 --> 00:18:05.050
  • HOW DO WE OVERCOME THOSE
  • 00:18:05.050 --> 00:18:06.200
  • MOMENTS IN LIFE WHEN WE FEEL
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:08.260
  • INTIMIDATED OR INADEQUATE
  • 00:18:08.260 --> 00:18:11.160
  • OR EVEN DEFEATED
  • 00:18:11.160 --> 00:18:12.270
  • BY THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:18:12.270 --> 00:18:13.240
  • THAT'S COMING OUR WAY?

  • GIVE UP EVERY THOUGHT
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:17.270
  • ABOUT QUITTING.
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:19.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:20.120
  • "THOSE WHO ENDURE TO THE END
  • 00:18:20.120 --> 00:18:21.180
  • SHALL BE SAVED."
  • 00:18:21.180 --> 00:18:23.080
  • ENDURANCE IS BIBLE THEME.
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:26.130
  • PRESIDENT CALVIN COOLIDGE SAID,
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:27.260
  • "NOTHING IN THE WORLD CAN TAKE
  • 00:18:27.260 --> 00:18:29.010
  • THE PLACE OF PERSISTENCE.
  • 00:18:29.010 --> 00:18:31.050
  • TALENT WILL NOT.
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:32.250
  • NOTHING IS MORE COMMON,"
  • 00:18:32.250 --> 00:18:34.030
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:18:34.030 --> 00:18:34.210
  • THAN UNSUCCESSFUL MEN
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:36.200
  • WITH TALENT.
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:38.020
  • GENIUS WILL NOT.
  • 00:18:38.020 --> 00:18:39.210
  • UNREWARDED GENIUS IS ALMOST
  • 00:18:39.210 --> 00:18:41.220
  • A PROVERB."
  • 00:18:41.220 --> 00:18:43.130
  • THE PRESIDENT CONTINUES,
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:45.010
  • "EDUCATION WILL NOT.
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:46.200
  • THE WORLD IS FULL
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:47.270
  • OF EDUCATED DERELICTS.
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:50.040
  • PERSISTENCE AND DETERMINATION
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:52.110
  • ALONE WILL WIN THE DAY."
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:56.160
  • "PERSISTENCE AND DETERMINATION
  • 00:18:56.160 --> 00:18:59.150
  • WILL WIN THE DAY."
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:01.210
  • THE PEOPLE IN THIS CHURCH,
  • 00:19:01.210 --> 00:19:03.260
  • WHO ARE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:05.040
  • IN LIFE,
  • 00:19:05.040 --> 00:19:06.050
  • NEVER WENT TO COLLEGE.
  • 00:19:07.010 --> 00:19:10.010
  • LET THAT SET IN.
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:12.080
  • YES,
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:12.220
  • I THINK YOU SHOULD SEND
  • 00:19:12.220 --> 00:19:13.180
  • YOUR CHILD TO COLLEGE.
  • 00:19:13.180 --> 00:19:15.040
  • BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T GET
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:16.120
  • TO GO,
  • 00:19:16.120 --> 00:19:17.190
  • DON'T THINK THAT SOME COLLEGE
  • 00:19:17.190 --> 00:19:19.030
  • APPROVAL OF YOU EQUATES
  • 00:19:19.030 --> 00:19:21.170
  • TO GOD'S APPROVAL OF YOU.
  • 00:19:21.170 --> 00:19:23.190
  • YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING
  • 00:19:23.190 --> 00:19:25.280
  • WITH GOD IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:28.130
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:29.250 --> 00:19:32.250
  • YOU WILL NEVER STAND IN

  • THE WINNER'S CIRCLE UNLESS YOU
  • 00:19:33.270 --> 00:19:35.020
  • FINISH THE RACE.
  • 00:19:35.020 --> 00:19:36.200
  • STOPPING AT THIRD BASE IS JUST
  • 00:19:36.200 --> 00:19:38.050
  • AS BAD AS MAKING AN OUT.
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:40.250
  • NEVER GIVE IN
  • 00:19:40.250 --> 00:19:41.200
  • AND NEVER GIVE UP.
  • 00:19:41.200 --> 00:19:42.240
  • QUITTERS DO NOT WIN,
  • 00:19:42.240 --> 00:19:44.270
  • AND WINNERS DO NOT QUIT.
  • 00:19:44.270 --> 00:19:46.220
  • QUITTING IS ACTUALLY MURDERING
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:48.030
  • YOUR OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:19:48.030 --> 00:19:49.210
  • WE QUIT JOBS BECAUSE THE BOSS
  • 00:19:49.210 --> 00:19:51.100
  • WANTS YOU TO COME TO WORK
  • 00:19:51.100 --> 00:19:52.290
  • AND LOOK REASONABLY ALIVE
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:54.150
  • FOR EIGHT HOURS.

  • YOU MILLENNIALS.
  • 00:19:58.060 --> 00:20:00.180
  • SO YOU QUIT.
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:02.130
  • THE SIGN ON A BUSINESS
  • 00:20:02.130 --> 00:20:04.080
  • THAT I SAW,

  • "HOW MANY PEOPLE WORK AROUND
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:18.130
  • HERE?"
  • 00:20:18.130 --> 00:20:19.020
  • HE SAID,

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:22.160
  • WE QUIT SCHOOL.
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:23.210

  • WHAT YOU WANT
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:32.090
  • BECAUSE FIVE NIGHTS A WEEK,
  • 00:20:32.090 --> 00:20:33.140
  • YOU NEED TO STUDY TWO HOURS,
  • 00:20:33.140 --> 00:20:35.230
  • IF IT MEANS PASSING THE TEST,
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:38.000
  • WELL FORGET IT;

  • THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

  • A BOYFRIEND AND A HUSBAND IS
  • 00:21:23.240 --> 00:21:25.060

  • 00:21:57.040 --> 00:21:58.120
  • IT'S NOT THE BOY SCOUT'S FAULT.
  • 00:21:58.120 --> 00:22:00.190
  • IT'S YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:22:00.190 --> 00:22:01.250
  • THE FACE YOU SEE IN THE MIRROR
  • 00:22:01.250 --> 00:22:03.080
  • IS THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:05.030
  • FOR YOU BEING WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:07.150
  • AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHERE
  • 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:08.160
  • YOU ARE,
  • 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:09.210
  • YOU TALK TO THAT PERSON.
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:11.080
  • ALL EXCUSE IS A THIN SKIN
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:13.040
  • OF FEAR STRETCHED TIGHTLY
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:14.260
  • OVER A BALD-FACE LIE.
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:17.090
  • THERE ARE TWO GROUPS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:22:17.090 --> 00:22:18.120
  • IN THE EARTH;
  • 00:22:18.120 --> 00:22:19.080
  • THOSE WHO MAKE GOOD
  • 00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:20.100
  • AND THOSE WHO MAKE EXCUSES.
  • 00:22:20.100 --> 00:22:22.090
  • AND SOME OF YOU HAVE USED UP
  • 00:22:22.090 --> 00:22:23.250
  • YOUR LIFE MAKING EXCUSES.
  • 00:22:23.250 --> 00:22:25.280
  • STOP IT,
  • 00:22:25.280 --> 00:22:27.130
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE DESTROYING
  • 00:22:27.130 --> 00:22:28.100
  • YOUR LIFE!
  • 00:22:28.100 --> 00:22:29.200
  • IF YOU MAKE EXCUSES,
  • 00:22:29.200 --> 00:22:31.170
  • NO ONE CAN HELP YOU,
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:34.080
  • NOT EVEN GOD.
  • 00:22:34.080 --> 00:22:36.110
  • LOOK AT THE EXCUSES
  • 00:22:36.110 --> 00:22:37.060
  • JESUS COULD HAVE USED.
  • 00:22:37.060 --> 00:22:39.230
  • I CAN'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE
  • 00:22:39.230 --> 00:22:41.030
  • PEOPLE SAY I WAS ILLEGITIMATE.
  • 00:22:42.210 --> 00:22:45.210
  • I WAS A PART OF A HATED
  • 00:22:45.210 --> 00:22:46.240
  • MINORITY, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:49.050
  • I WAS BORN IN POLITICAL
  • 00:22:49.050 --> 00:22:50.150
  • CAPTIVITY.
  • 00:22:50.150 --> 00:22:51.290
  • WHEN I GREW UP,
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:52.210
  • CHURCH LEADERS CALLED ME
  • 00:22:52.210 --> 00:22:53.190
  • A HERETIC,
  • 00:22:53.190 --> 00:22:54.130
  • A DRUNKARD,
  • 00:22:54.130 --> 00:22:55.090
  • A TRAITOR,
  • 00:22:55.090 --> 00:22:56.030
  • A LIAR.
  • 00:22:56.030 --> 00:22:57.130
  • JUDAS BETRAYED ME.
  • 00:22:57.130 --> 00:22:59.110
  • PETER IS CURSING MY MEMORY.
  • 00:22:59.110 --> 00:23:00.290
  • THOMAS DOUBTED ME.
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:03.120
  • JESUS LOOKED AT HELL'S LEGIONS
  • 00:23:03.120 --> 00:23:05.050
  • IN THE EYE.
  • 00:23:05.050 --> 00:23:06.280
  • HE DIDN'T MAKE THOSE EXCUSES.
  • 00:23:06.280 --> 00:23:08.080
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:09.000
  • "I AM THE CONQUEROR OF DEATH,
  • 00:23:09.000 --> 00:23:10.000
  • HELL AND THE GRAVE."
  • 00:23:10.000 --> 00:23:11.180
  • PAUL SAID,
  • 00:23:11.180 --> 00:23:12.080
  • "HE HAS PUBLICLY PUT SATAN
  • 00:23:12.080 --> 00:23:13.220
  • TO SHAME."
  • 00:23:13.220 --> 00:23:14.120
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:23:14.120 --> 00:23:15.150
  • THAT MEANS WHEN JESUS DIED
  • 00:23:15.150 --> 00:23:16.230
  • ON THE CROSS AND HE WENT
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:17.280
  • INTO HELL,
  • 00:23:17.280 --> 00:23:19.000
  • HE TOOK SATAN BY THE HAIR
  • 00:23:19.000 --> 00:23:20.240
  • AND DRUG HIM THROUGH THE FIRE,
  • 00:23:20.240 --> 00:23:22.200
  • AND PARADED HIM IN FRONT
  • 00:23:22.200 --> 00:23:23.290
  • OF EVERY DEMON.
  • 00:23:23.290 --> 00:23:25.020
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:23:25.020 --> 00:23:25.260
  • I HAVE DEFEATED HIM
  • 00:23:25.260 --> 00:23:26.260
  • AT THE CROSS.
  • 00:23:26.260 --> 00:23:27.270
  • HE IS A DEFEATED FOE.
  • 00:23:27.270 --> 00:23:29.290
  • AND WHEN MY CHILDREN COME
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:31.180
  • TO THE GATE USING MY NAME,
  • 00:23:31.180 --> 00:23:34.090
  • YOU TURN THEM LOOSE,
  • 00:23:34.090 --> 00:23:36.040
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE THE VICTORIOUS
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:39.230
  • BRIDE OF CHRIST!
  • 00:23:39.230 --> 00:23:41.010
