  • - The lost are found,the sick are healed
  • 00:00:00.223 --> 00:00:02.859
  • and the body ofChrist is renewed.
  • 00:00:02.859 --> 00:00:05.361
  • Revival inspires change thatblesses generations to come.
  • 00:00:05.361 --> 00:00:09.599
  • But how can we keepthat passion alive?
  • 00:00:09.599 --> 00:00:12.001
  • Let's talk about living,sharing and spreading
  • 00:00:12.001 --> 00:00:14.771
  • the spirit of revival.
  • 00:00:14.771 --> 00:00:16.072
  • Come on, let's do it.
  • 00:00:16.072 --> 00:00:17.474
  • (uplifting music)
  • 00:00:17.474 --> 00:00:20.276
  • - I love how we've been talkingabout how revival starts
  • 00:00:44.267 --> 00:00:47.737
  • with a personal moment,
  • 00:00:47.737 --> 00:00:49.072
  • how it starts with our heart,
  • 00:00:49.072 --> 00:00:50.340
  • how it starts with aposture of humility.
  • 00:00:50.340 --> 00:00:52.909
  • And then it out works to thosethat are in our household
  • 00:00:52.909 --> 00:00:56.513
  • and then spreadsto our neighbors.
  • 00:00:56.513 --> 00:00:59.249
  • I love this.
  • 00:00:59.249 --> 00:01:00.450
  • And I also think thatrevival sometimes
  • 00:01:00.450 --> 00:01:03.086
  • becomes a validationfor the church.
  • 00:01:03.086 --> 00:01:05.121
  • But that's notwhat God is saying.
  • 00:01:05.121 --> 00:01:07.390
  • Revival is for youto actually move out.
  • 00:01:07.390 --> 00:01:11.494
  • When I was pregnant with Alec,
  • 00:01:11.494 --> 00:01:13.963
  • and Alec is Chris's favorite.
  • 00:01:13.963 --> 00:01:15.598
  • When I was pregnant with Alec,I remember I just got so fat.
  • 00:01:15.598 --> 00:01:19.469
  • I got so large and in charge.
  • 00:01:19.469 --> 00:01:21.437
  • I don't know what was goingon, but for some reason,
  • 00:01:21.437 --> 00:01:24.841
  • John was on the ground andI decided to sit on him.
  • 00:01:24.841 --> 00:01:28.945
  • And I thought,wow, I am so strong
  • 00:01:28.945 --> 00:01:31.981
  • because I can holdthis man down.
  • 00:01:31.981 --> 00:01:34.184
  • But holding somebody down isnot an example of strength.
  • 00:01:34.184 --> 00:01:39.189
  • People that are stronguse what is on them
  • 00:01:40.356 --> 00:01:42.892
  • to carry other people.
  • 00:01:42.892 --> 00:01:44.527
  • And I was never strong enoughto pick John up and carry him.
  • 00:01:44.527 --> 00:01:48.698
  • And so when we have a revival,
  • 00:01:48.698 --> 00:01:50.767
  • this isn't for us tolook down on other people
  • 00:01:50.767 --> 00:01:53.469
  • or people outside of whatGod is doing in our life.
  • 00:01:53.469 --> 00:01:56.806
  • It's for us to actuallylift other people
  • 00:01:56.806 --> 00:01:59.108
  • and begin to carry theminto the presence of God.
  • 00:01:59.108 --> 00:02:03.179
  • So many people are saying,
  • 00:02:03.179 --> 00:02:04.447
  • I don't know whatI'm called to do.
  • 00:02:04.447 --> 00:02:06.883
  • Well, I think wejust start with,
  • 00:02:06.883 --> 00:02:08.151
  • we are called to love people.
  • 00:02:08.151 --> 00:02:10.220
  • We are called to tell themabout the love that we found.
  • 00:02:10.220 --> 00:02:14.190
  • And one of my favorite versions
  • 00:02:14.190 --> 00:02:16.693
  • of Matthew chapterfive verse nine
  • 00:02:16.693 --> 00:02:18.895
  • is the message paraphrase.
  • 00:02:18.895 --> 00:02:20.797
  • And this is what it says.
  • 00:02:20.797 --> 00:02:22.131
  • It says, "You're blessedwhen you can show people
  • 00:02:22.131 --> 00:02:25.768
  • "how to cooperate insteadof compete or fight."
  • 00:02:25.768 --> 00:02:30.173
  • And so you're notgonna be a blessing
  • 00:02:30.173 --> 00:02:33.476
  • by you're like,
  • 00:02:33.476 --> 00:02:34.711
  • hey, let me show youhow to win this fight.
  • 00:02:34.711 --> 00:02:36.446
  • No, it's, you're gonnashow them how to cooperate
  • 00:02:36.446 --> 00:02:39.649
  • rather than compete and fight.
  • 00:02:39.649 --> 00:02:41.384
  • That's when you discoverwho you really are
  • 00:02:41.384 --> 00:02:45.021
  • and your place in God's family.
  • 00:02:45.021 --> 00:02:47.957
  • So when we actually havethe anointing of God
  • 00:02:47.957 --> 00:02:50.326
  • that is on our lives,
  • 00:02:50.326 --> 00:02:51.928
  • we help other peoplediscover who they really are.
  • 00:02:51.928 --> 00:02:55.465
  • I love the story ofthe woman at the well.
  • 00:02:55.465 --> 00:02:57.233
  • She went on to be oneof the most effective
  • 00:02:57.233 --> 00:03:01.070
  • and famous apostlesin the church.
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:03.806
  • We don't always talk about that.
  • 00:03:03.806 --> 00:03:05.441
  • But she left herhome in Samaria,
  • 00:03:05.441 --> 00:03:08.011
  • went to Carthage andpreached the gospel.
  • 00:03:08.011 --> 00:03:11.214
  • But you know what?
  • 00:03:11.214 --> 00:03:12.615
  • She didn't just start preachingthe gospel to strangers.
  • 00:03:12.615 --> 00:03:14.717
  • She took along side of her,her sisters and her sons.
  • 00:03:14.717 --> 00:03:18.888
  • When something happensthat is valid in our lives,
  • 00:03:18.888 --> 00:03:21.891
  • we bring along our families.
  • 00:03:21.891 --> 00:03:23.693
  • We bring along oursisters and our sons.
  • 00:03:23.693 --> 00:03:27.964
  • I believe there'sa great boldness
  • 00:03:27.964 --> 00:03:29.766
  • that is coming on the church
  • 00:03:29.766 --> 00:03:31.734
  • where we can say, thisis what I'm going to do
  • 00:03:31.734 --> 00:03:34.671
  • to stir up my gift thatis on my life, my heart
  • 00:03:34.671 --> 00:03:38.374
  • that's been revived.
  • 00:03:38.374 --> 00:03:39.809
  • I'm not gonna go into hiding.
  • 00:03:39.809 --> 00:03:41.611
  • I'm gonna fan it into a flame
  • 00:03:41.611 --> 00:03:43.746
  • by sharing it with other people.
  • 00:03:43.746 --> 00:03:45.748
  • So I think I would love to hear
  • 00:03:45.748 --> 00:03:47.650
  • from each and every one of us,
  • 00:03:47.650 --> 00:03:49.752
  • what is one way you keep thatrevival alive in your heart?
  • 00:03:49.752 --> 00:03:54.757
  • Yes, we read the word.
  • 00:03:55.558 --> 00:03:57.293
  • Yes, we pray.
  • 00:03:57.293 --> 00:03:58.594
  • But what are someof the outworkings
  • 00:03:58.594 --> 00:04:01.064
  • for stewarding the giftof God that's on your life
  • 00:04:01.064 --> 00:04:03.866
  • to lift other people?
  • 00:04:03.866 --> 00:04:05.635
  • - I think one of thethings is worship.
  • 00:04:05.635 --> 00:04:09.372
  • Worshiping extravagantly.
  • 00:04:09.372 --> 00:04:11.174
  • And worship is a lifestyle onwhat we do in our testimony
  • 00:04:11.174 --> 00:04:16.179
  • sharing our, you know, a lotof people say, you know what?
  • 00:04:17.613 --> 00:04:18.514
  • I don't know.
  • 00:04:18.514 --> 00:04:19.349
  • I'm not called to speak.
  • 00:04:19.349 --> 00:04:20.183
  • I'm not either.
  • 00:04:20.183 --> 00:04:21.584
  • I'm not called to getin front of an audience.
  • 00:04:21.584 --> 00:04:24.253
  • You know what?
  • 00:04:24.253 --> 00:04:25.088
  • It's hard for me too.
  • 00:04:26.289 --> 00:04:27.457
  • But I do have a testimony.
  • 00:04:27.457 --> 00:04:29.826
  • And being that witness,
  • 00:04:29.826 --> 00:04:31.961
  • we talked about that yesterday,
  • 00:04:31.961 --> 00:04:33.529
  • being a witness ofthe goodness of God
  • 00:04:33.529 --> 00:04:36.599
  • and sharing our testimonyof what God has done for me,
  • 00:04:36.599 --> 00:04:41.137
  • what God has done in my life.
  • 00:04:41.137 --> 00:04:42.939
  • I have never seen therighteous forsaken.
  • 00:04:42.939 --> 00:04:46.042
  • I have seen the goodness ofGod in the land of the living.
  • 00:04:46.042 --> 00:04:49.746
  • And I just think that whatwe do through the Holy spirit
  • 00:04:49.746 --> 00:04:54.517
  • and not stifling Him in ourlives is such a big deal.
  • 00:04:54.517 --> 00:04:58.154
  • Chris, when God wants to moveus and move on us to speak,
  • 00:04:58.154 --> 00:05:03.159
  • to say something.
  • 00:05:03.893 --> 00:05:04.827
  • It doesn't have to be a sermon.
  • 00:05:04.827 --> 00:05:06.562
  • It doesn't have tobe a big long speech.
  • 00:05:06.562 --> 00:05:09.465
  • Sometimes I am theone on this panel
  • 00:05:09.465 --> 00:05:13.202
  • that struggles for every word.
  • 00:05:13.202 --> 00:05:15.772
  • And they all know that.
  • 00:05:15.772 --> 00:05:17.807
  • All of my friends sittinghere on this set know that.
  • 00:05:17.807 --> 00:05:20.610
  • I am the last one tocome up with a good word.
  • 00:05:20.610 --> 00:05:23.012
  • But I think just living andletting your light shine,
  • 00:05:24.547 --> 00:05:29.552
  • no matter where you are,
  • 00:05:30.286 --> 00:05:31.487
  • having that peace inthe presence of turmoil,
  • 00:05:31.487 --> 00:05:35.124
  • having that joy inthe midst of despair
  • 00:05:35.124 --> 00:05:39.562
  • a joy that's unspeakable,that you can't understand it,
  • 00:05:39.562 --> 00:05:43.866
  • a peace that passesall understanding,all that good stuff,
  • 00:05:43.866 --> 00:05:47.336
  • Chris, and just living thatin front of your neighbors,
  • 00:05:47.336 --> 00:05:51.507
  • like you were saying.
  • 00:05:51.507 --> 00:05:52.708
  • Wherever you go takethe Holy spirit with you
  • 00:05:52.708 --> 00:05:55.511
  • and let Him liveout His expression
  • 00:05:55.511 --> 00:05:59.382
  • through everything wedo and touch and say.
  • 00:05:59.382 --> 00:06:02.351
  • - Yeah, totally.
  • 00:06:03.820 --> 00:06:04.754
  • And I love what you're saying.
  • 00:06:04.754 --> 00:06:06.155
  • See the fact is the Holyspirit, God can only anoint us,
  • 00:06:06.155 --> 00:06:09.258
  • not another version of us.
  • 00:06:09.258 --> 00:06:10.326
  • So here's one great thing.
  • 00:06:10.326 --> 00:06:11.527
  • This is why BetterTogether even exists.
  • 00:06:11.527 --> 00:06:13.963
  • Because we truly believe this.
  • 00:06:15.031 --> 00:06:16.499
  • It's not just kind of anice trite little statement.
  • 00:06:16.499 --> 00:06:20.770
  • Laurie was talking.
  • 00:06:20.770 --> 00:06:21.971
  • Let me just say,and I wanna clarify
  • 00:06:21.971 --> 00:06:23.439
  • to every viewer watching this,
  • 00:06:23.439 --> 00:06:24.841
  • Laurie is the most Christianof all of us, okay?
  • 00:06:24.841 --> 00:06:27.577
  • So whether some of us maybepreach or teach more eloquently
  • 00:06:27.577 --> 00:06:32.515
  • but Laurie's the Christian.
  • 00:06:33.382 --> 00:06:35.117
  • So I say all of this togo, we all need each other.
  • 00:06:35.117 --> 00:06:37.920
  • We are one bodyand no, it's true.
  • 00:06:37.920 --> 00:06:40.790
  • It's true.
  • 00:06:40.790 --> 00:06:41.724
  • Lisa Bevere is a close second.
  • 00:06:41.724 --> 00:06:43.226
  • But me and Alex andStephanie, we need help.
  • 00:06:43.226 --> 00:06:45.261
  • And so the fact is that.
  • 00:06:45.261 --> 00:06:46.896
  • The fact of the matter is thatwe are one body, many parts.
  • 00:06:49.398 --> 00:06:52.635
  • And Lisa, I love what she said.
  • 00:06:52.635 --> 00:06:54.570
  • She goes, how do youkeep fanning that flame?
  • 00:06:54.570 --> 00:06:57.440
  • How do you stay alive?
  • 00:06:57.440 --> 00:06:58.641
  • And I know some ofyou are watching this
  • 00:06:58.641 --> 00:06:59.675
  • and some people do better
  • 00:06:59.675 --> 00:07:01.978
  • sort of exclusively ontheir own than others.
  • 00:07:01.978 --> 00:07:04.447
  • I'm a person.
  • 00:07:04.447 --> 00:07:05.548
  • I'm an introverted extrovert.
  • 00:07:07.984 --> 00:07:10.286
  • So it's quite a really weird.
  • 00:07:10.286 --> 00:07:11.721
  • I replenish with alot of alone time,
  • 00:07:11.721 --> 00:07:14.357
  • but I understandthe value of a body.
  • 00:07:14.357 --> 00:07:17.560
  • And like the girls thatyou see on this screen now,
  • 00:07:17.560 --> 00:07:20.029
  • the girls that you seeon Better Together,
  • 00:07:20.029 --> 00:07:21.364
  • most of us know each other.
  • 00:07:21.364 --> 00:07:22.765
  • Whatever week, we'renot always on together,
  • 00:07:22.765 --> 00:07:24.433
  • but we all know each other.
  • 00:07:24.433 --> 00:07:26.068
  • I need them to keepthe fan, to fuel God
  • 00:07:26.068 --> 00:07:30.673
  • on the inside of me.
  • 00:07:30.673 --> 00:07:32.174
  • Lisa, my friend sent me atext last week with a video
  • 00:07:32.174 --> 00:07:35.077
  • saying, okay, next week,which would be this week
  • 00:07:35.077 --> 00:07:38.381
  • when we get a chance,let's catch up.
  • 00:07:38.381 --> 00:07:40.049
  • One half-hour conversationwith Lisa Bevere on the phone
  • 00:07:40.049 --> 00:07:43.519
  • is gonna get me more firedup in the Holy ghost.
  • 00:07:43.519 --> 00:07:45.588
  • I mean, honestly, we will havesolved the world's problems.
  • 00:07:45.588 --> 00:07:48.224
  • We will have prophesiedexactly what's happening.
  • 00:07:48.224 --> 00:07:50.493
  • We'll do more to keep me.
  • 00:07:50.493 --> 00:07:53.095
  • Even, can I just say youwatching this program,
  • 00:07:53.095 --> 00:07:55.765
  • like so many things thatthe girls have been saying
  • 00:07:55.765 --> 00:07:57.833
  • this week in between shows,
  • 00:07:57.833 --> 00:08:00.002
  • I've been taking notesin my phone going,
  • 00:08:00.002 --> 00:08:01.871
  • oh, I'm gonna think about that.
  • 00:08:01.871 --> 00:08:03.606
  • That has just stirred up thefire on the inside of me.
  • 00:08:03.606 --> 00:08:07.143
  • We were never meantto do this alone.
  • 00:08:07.143 --> 00:08:09.579
  • So one way thatyou fan that flame,
  • 00:08:09.579 --> 00:08:12.548
  • one way that you fuel thatfire is with intentionality.
  • 00:08:12.548 --> 00:08:16.886
  • You go, well, Christine,you know what?
  • 00:08:16.886 --> 00:08:18.654
  • I don't have an Alex Seeleyor a Stephanie or a Lisa
  • 00:08:18.654 --> 00:08:21.057
  • or a Laurie or a Chris Cainein my, but you've got somebody.
  • 00:08:21.057 --> 00:08:24.160
  • You've got somebody.
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:25.094
  • And you're in a church community
  • 00:08:25.094 --> 00:08:26.862
  • and we've still got Zoom.
  • 00:08:26.862 --> 00:08:28.297
  • Even if you're in shutdown,you've still got Zoom.
  • 00:08:28.297 --> 00:08:30.967
  • I have been part of one churchfor 31 years in my life.
  • 00:08:30.967 --> 00:08:35.972
  • 31 years in one place.
  • 00:08:35.972 --> 00:08:37.840
  • And so I haveroots that go deep.
  • 00:08:37.840 --> 00:08:39.842
  • I have relationships that gobroad and deep across the body.
  • 00:08:39.842 --> 00:08:43.980
  • And so not everyone can beeverything to you all at once.
  • 00:08:43.980 --> 00:08:48.084
  • Sometimes some of you go,well, people have let me down.
  • 00:08:48.084 --> 00:08:49.986
  • Or people have disappointed me.
  • 00:08:49.986 --> 00:08:51.587
  • Don't try to makepeople into God.
  • 00:08:51.587 --> 00:08:53.322
  • Don't try to get from people
  • 00:08:53.322 --> 00:08:54.523
  • what you couldonly get from God.
  • 00:08:54.523 --> 00:08:55.992
  • But there are people that youcould be in community with
  • 00:08:55.992 --> 00:08:59.061
  • that can help really fan thatflame on the inside of you
  • 00:08:59.061 --> 00:09:04.000
  • and keep you on course,
  • 00:09:04.000 --> 00:09:05.968
  • keep you on track andkeep you connected.
  • 00:09:05.968 --> 00:09:08.304
  • So we've talkedabout so many things:
  • 00:09:08.304 --> 00:09:09.839
  • prayer, worship, the word,
  • 00:09:09.839 --> 00:09:12.241
  • but I'm also a big believer innot forsaking the gathering,
  • 00:09:12.241 --> 00:09:15.711
  • even if it's virtuallyin this season.
  • 00:09:15.711 --> 00:09:17.913
  • There's a reason we're meantto do community together.
  • 00:09:19.382 --> 00:09:21.217
  • I know Alex, you're a pastor.
  • 00:09:21.217 --> 00:09:23.386
  • You could see the value of that.
  • 00:09:23.386 --> 00:09:25.187
  • - Yeah, 100%.
  • 00:09:26.989 --> 00:09:28.224
  • And I think you do.
  • 00:09:28.224 --> 00:09:29.158
  • You spur one another on.
  • 00:09:29.158 --> 00:09:30.993
  • You exhort one another.
  • 00:09:30.993 --> 00:09:32.962
  • When you're flat,somebody else is strong.
  • 00:09:32.962 --> 00:09:35.665
  • And so they carry your arms.
  • 00:09:35.665 --> 00:09:37.199
  • And I think it's very importantthat that fans the flames.
  • 00:09:37.199 --> 00:09:40.336
  • What I've really noticed
  • 00:09:41.504 --> 00:09:43.406
  • is that the peoplethat have thought
  • 00:09:43.406 --> 00:09:44.640
  • you don't need to havechurch or be in church,
  • 00:09:44.640 --> 00:09:47.677
  • they've realized actually,I do need my community.
  • 00:09:47.677 --> 00:09:51.180
  • I do need the peopleof God around me
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:54.350
  • to exhort and encourage.
  • 00:09:54.350 --> 00:09:55.851
  • But I think for me, theway I keep that fan aflame
  • 00:09:55.851 --> 00:10:00.823
  • is I exercise thegifts of the spirit.
  • 00:10:03.059 --> 00:10:06.996
  • And what I mean by that is Iremember when I was younger
  • 00:10:06.996 --> 00:10:10.800
  • and I was learning howto get words of knowledge
  • 00:10:10.800 --> 00:10:15.171
  • and move in the prophetic,
  • 00:10:15.171 --> 00:10:17.473
  • it made me more dependent on God
  • 00:10:17.473 --> 00:10:19.542
  • because I couldn'tdo it in my flesh.
  • 00:10:19.542 --> 00:10:21.477
  • But what I would find is whenI would step out in faith,
  • 00:10:21.477 --> 00:10:25.047
  • I'll never forget therewas one time I was on a bus
  • 00:10:25.047 --> 00:10:27.717
  • and this girl, Godhighlighted this girl to me.
  • 00:10:27.717 --> 00:10:30.453
  • And I said, Lord, do youhave something for her?
  • 00:10:30.453 --> 00:10:33.122
  • And He said, yep.
  • 00:10:33.122 --> 00:10:34.356
  • And He gave me aword of knowledge.
  • 00:10:34.356 --> 00:10:36.058
  • And I was so scared to justgo up to this random girl
  • 00:10:36.058 --> 00:10:39.495
  • on a bus and exchangethis word of knowledge.
  • 00:10:39.495 --> 00:10:42.732
  • But I stepped out infaith and I did it.
  • 00:10:42.732 --> 00:10:45.134
  • And she couldn't believe it.
  • 00:10:45.134 --> 00:10:46.535
  • She starts cryingbecause I had pinpointed,
  • 00:10:46.535 --> 00:10:49.004
  • well, the Lord had pinpointed
  • 00:10:49.004 --> 00:10:51.107
  • the very thing thatnobody knew about.
  • 00:10:51.107 --> 00:10:53.476
  • And that did something inme that it became like,
  • 00:10:53.476 --> 00:10:57.146
  • oh my gosh, likeI'm telling you,
  • 00:10:57.146 --> 00:11:00.116
  • when you begin to witnessyour faith, share your faith,
  • 00:11:00.116 --> 00:11:03.152
  • operate in thegifts of the spirit,
  • 00:11:03.152 --> 00:11:05.187
  • it does something in youthat fans a flame that says,
  • 00:11:05.187 --> 00:11:08.657
  • I wanna do more of this.
  • 00:11:08.657 --> 00:11:10.159
  • But I can't do more of itunless I'm connected to God.
  • 00:11:10.159 --> 00:11:13.195
  • So I feel likeevery time there's aflattening of the curve
  • 00:11:13.195 --> 00:11:16.499
  • for me, I just get in and I dosomething out of the ordinary
  • 00:11:16.499 --> 00:11:21.337
  • that stirs up.
  • 00:11:21.337 --> 00:11:22.872
  • Like speaking to somebody.
  • 00:11:22.872 --> 00:11:25.274
  • Like even yesterday,I was in a parking lot
  • 00:11:25.274 --> 00:11:27.209
  • and I saw a woman cryingin the back of an alley.
  • 00:11:27.209 --> 00:11:31.313
  • And I was on thephone with a friend
  • 00:11:31.313 --> 00:11:32.848
  • and I just said, I've gotta go.
  • 00:11:32.848 --> 00:11:34.316
  • I jumped out of the car.
  • 00:11:34.316 --> 00:11:35.718
  • And I said, "Excuseme, are you okay?"
  • 00:11:35.718 --> 00:11:38.420
  • And I began to sharethe love of Jesus.
  • 00:11:38.420 --> 00:11:40.456
  • And I go, somethinghappened on the inside.
  • 00:11:40.456 --> 00:11:42.858
  • I was like, yes, come on.
  • 00:11:42.858 --> 00:11:44.660
  • I'm not even in myhome town right now.
  • 00:11:44.660 --> 00:11:46.495
  • And I was just like,this is exciting.
  • 00:11:46.495 --> 00:11:48.931
  • And that for me,stirs something in me,
  • 00:11:48.931 --> 00:11:52.034
  • that causes me to goback to the Father,
  • 00:11:52.034 --> 00:11:54.937
  • get fueled up so that Ican have that boldness
  • 00:11:54.937 --> 00:11:57.640
  • and that faith to step up.
  • 00:11:57.640 --> 00:11:58.808
  • And when I'm ministeringin those gifts,
  • 00:11:58.808 --> 00:12:00.643
  • when I'm praying forhealing for somebody
  • 00:12:00.643 --> 00:12:02.545
  • and I see someone gethealed, I'm like, okay.
  • 00:12:02.545 --> 00:12:05.014
  • Yeah, let's go.
  • 00:12:05.014 --> 00:12:06.215
  • So I don't know about you,
  • 00:12:06.215 --> 00:12:07.650
  • but maybe today God's justasking you to pray for somebody,
  • 00:12:07.650 --> 00:12:11.020
  • encourage someone.
  • 00:12:11.020 --> 00:12:12.521
  • You don't have to have theprophetic gift just yet
  • 00:12:12.521 --> 00:12:14.490
  • or the word of knowledge.
  • 00:12:14.490 --> 00:12:15.825
  • Just encourage someone,just compliment someone.
  • 00:12:15.825 --> 00:12:18.627
  • Just say, you know what?
  • 00:12:18.627 --> 00:12:20.162
  • You look beautiful today,to a woman or whatever.
  • 00:12:20.162 --> 00:12:22.932
  • And what it does foryou on the inside,
  • 00:12:22.932 --> 00:12:25.201
  • it fans this flame thatcauses you to think others
  • 00:12:25.201 --> 00:12:28.971
  • and be others focused.
  • 00:12:28.971 --> 00:12:30.573
  • And so I love it.
  • 00:12:30.573 --> 00:12:31.574
  • What about you, Stephanie?
  • 00:12:31.574 --> 00:12:32.875
  • - No, I agree with all of that.
  • 00:12:34.476 --> 00:12:36.645
  • The word of God tells usthat His thoughts towards us
  • 00:12:36.645 --> 00:12:39.114
  • are endless.
  • 00:12:39.114 --> 00:12:40.049
  • And so whenever I meet someone,
  • 00:12:40.049 --> 00:12:42.084
  • I always pray in that moment.
  • 00:12:42.084 --> 00:12:43.652
  • I'm like, God, can you sharesome of those thoughts with me
  • 00:12:43.652 --> 00:12:46.388
  • just to keep them encouraged?
  • 00:12:46.388 --> 00:12:48.624
  • Because even all thegifts of the spirit,
  • 00:12:48.624 --> 00:12:51.827
  • the heart of it is love.
  • 00:12:51.827 --> 00:12:53.896
  • So I believe that even goingback to what Lisa shared,
  • 00:12:53.896 --> 00:12:57.867
  • that you may feel likeyou don't know what to do.
  • 00:12:57.867 --> 00:13:00.169
  • But just love on somebody.
  • 00:13:00.169 --> 00:13:01.871
  • Because everythingwe do, Paul said that
  • 00:13:01.871 --> 00:13:04.039
  • without love, noneof it matters.
  • 00:13:04.039 --> 00:13:06.342
  • That without love, like therewas no point of it at all.
  • 00:13:06.342 --> 00:13:09.345
  • And so what motivates us,
  • 00:13:09.345 --> 00:13:11.080
  • whether it's to move inthe gifts of the spirit,
  • 00:13:11.080 --> 00:13:13.148
  • it is the love of Christand the love of His people.
  • 00:13:13.148 --> 00:13:16.919
  • And so you may feel like God,
  • 00:13:16.919 --> 00:13:18.621
  • I don't know what my purpose is.
  • 00:13:18.621 --> 00:13:20.022
  • I don't know what to do.
  • 00:13:20.022 --> 00:13:21.790
  • Just love.
  • 00:13:21.790 --> 00:13:22.825
  • Love on someone.
  • 00:13:22.825 --> 00:13:24.093
  • And the beauty is thatwhen you walk in love,
  • 00:13:24.093 --> 00:13:26.262
  • you walk in the nature of God.
  • 00:13:26.262 --> 00:13:28.664
  • The word of God tellsus that He is love.
  • 00:13:28.664 --> 00:13:30.699
  • Not that He has love,or He gives love.
  • 00:13:30.699 --> 00:13:33.035
  • That is His very identity.
  • 00:13:33.035 --> 00:13:35.037
  • And so when we embody loveto a neighbor, to a friend,
  • 00:13:35.037 --> 00:13:39.074
  • to a stranger, to a hater,
  • 00:13:39.074 --> 00:13:41.243
  • like people would say,when you choose love,
  • 00:13:41.243 --> 00:13:44.146
  • when we become peacemakers,
  • 00:13:44.146 --> 00:13:45.881
  • like we talked aboutearlier in the week,
  • 00:13:45.881 --> 00:13:47.917
  • when we say God, I'm choosingthe way of a peacemaker,
  • 00:13:47.917 --> 00:13:51.120
  • we are inviting thepower of the Holy spirit.
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:54.189
  • I have seen moments whereall I said to a person
  • 00:13:54.189 --> 00:13:57.760
  • was Jesus loves you.
  • 00:13:57.760 --> 00:13:59.495
  • And it came from myheart for them to know
  • 00:13:59.495 --> 00:14:02.398
  • that you are not alone in this.
  • 00:14:02.398 --> 00:14:04.233
  • Those three simple words.
  • 00:14:04.233 --> 00:14:06.201
  • I didn't have to sayanything eloquent.
  • 00:14:06.201 --> 00:14:08.170
  • I just said, Jesus loves you.
  • 00:14:08.170 --> 00:14:10.773
  • And they broke down in my arms
  • 00:14:10.773 --> 00:14:13.242
  • because the Holy spirit usedthe power of those words
  • 00:14:13.242 --> 00:14:16.578
  • in their heart
  • 00:14:16.578 --> 00:14:17.813
  • and used the posture ofmy heart towards them,
  • 00:14:17.813 --> 00:14:19.782
  • that God, I'm for your people.
  • 00:14:19.782 --> 00:14:21.784
  • Alex, you said somethingabout a prayer of yours
  • 00:14:21.784 --> 00:14:24.386
  • and that's reallya prayer of mine.
  • 00:14:24.386 --> 00:14:26.088
  • God break my heartfor what breaks yours.
  • 00:14:26.088 --> 00:14:28.657
  • That is the posture Iwanna live in my life
  • 00:14:28.657 --> 00:14:30.926
  • all the days of my life.
  • 00:14:30.926 --> 00:14:32.394
  • That break my heart alwaysfor what breaks yours.
  • 00:14:32.394 --> 00:14:34.964
  • Because the moment I lose mysensitivity to your people,
  • 00:14:34.964 --> 00:14:38.934
  • I've missed it.
  • 00:14:38.934 --> 00:14:39.935
  • It doesn't matter what I say.
  • 00:14:39.935 --> 00:14:41.170
  • It doesn't matter what I do.
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:42.538
  • If I'm no longersensitive to your people,
  • 00:14:42.538 --> 00:14:44.940
  • then there's no point.
  • 00:14:44.940 --> 00:14:46.108
  • And so alwayswherever you put me,
  • 00:14:46.108 --> 00:14:48.610
  • give me the sensitivity
  • 00:14:48.610 --> 00:14:50.145
  • to what is Your heart forYour people in this place,
  • 00:14:50.145 --> 00:14:52.815
  • in this moment.
  • 00:14:52.815 --> 00:14:54.083
  • And I believe foreveryone watching,
  • 00:14:54.083 --> 00:14:55.884
  • God just wants you toknow, just embody love.
  • 00:14:55.884 --> 00:14:58.387
  • That's it.
  • 00:14:58.387 --> 00:14:59.888
  • It's not about, sometimeswe glamorize purpose so much
  • 00:14:59.888 --> 00:15:02.624
  • that we make it about a thingrather than the source of it.
  • 00:15:02.624 --> 00:15:05.761
  • And the source is Jesus.
  • 00:15:05.761 --> 00:15:07.429
  • And so when you're connectedto Him, that's what matters.
  • 00:15:07.429 --> 00:15:10.566
  • - Wow, I just love that.
  • 00:15:12.368 --> 00:15:13.736
  • And you know what I'mhearing from everybody.
  • 00:15:13.736 --> 00:15:15.437
  • I took notes on what eachand every one of you said.
  • 00:15:15.437 --> 00:15:18.774
  • What happens to quenchthe flame in our life
  • 00:15:18.774 --> 00:15:22.811
  • is when we become self-focused.
  • 00:15:22.811 --> 00:15:24.880
  • Laurie, you talkedabout worshiping.
  • 00:15:24.880 --> 00:15:26.682
  • I talked about beinggifted to live.
  • 00:15:26.682 --> 00:15:28.650
  • Christine talkedabout community.
  • 00:15:28.650 --> 00:15:30.753
  • Alex, you talkedabout exercising thegifts of the spirit.
  • 00:15:30.753 --> 00:15:34.556
  • And we know that thegifts of the spirit
  • 00:15:34.556 --> 00:15:36.392
  • are to reveal thegoodness of God.
  • 00:15:36.392 --> 00:15:38.494
  • And Stephanie, youjust highlighted
  • 00:15:38.494 --> 00:15:40.162
  • about letting peopleknow that God loves them.
  • 00:15:40.162 --> 00:15:44.833
  • And I'm thinking that we'reliving in days right now
  • 00:15:44.833 --> 00:15:47.803
  • that are desperatetimes for discernment,
  • 00:15:47.803 --> 00:15:51.273
  • that we need to be peoplewho are discerning people.
  • 00:15:51.273 --> 00:15:54.543
  • And I thought aboutin the book of Hebrews
  • 00:15:54.543 --> 00:15:56.311
  • and it might be Romans
  • 00:15:56.311 --> 00:15:57.446
  • 'cause I do havehorrible location issues
  • 00:15:57.446 --> 00:16:00.215
  • when it comes to scripture.
  • 00:16:00.215 --> 00:16:01.650
  • But it says, "Who throughconstant use have their senses,"
  • 00:16:01.650 --> 00:16:06.355
  • their spiritual senses,
  • 00:16:07.089 --> 00:16:08.490
  • "exercise, to be able todiscern good from evil."
  • 00:16:08.490 --> 00:16:13.062
  • Not label people,not judge people,
  • 00:16:13.062 --> 00:16:16.198
  • but to be able to discern,to be able to actually pull
  • 00:16:16.198 --> 00:16:19.668
  • the good out ofother people's lives.
  • 00:16:19.668 --> 00:16:21.570
  • Alex, I've seenwomen in the airport
  • 00:16:21.570 --> 00:16:23.839
  • where they're just on a move
  • 00:16:23.839 --> 00:16:25.307
  • and you'd look at themand you'd make eye contact
  • 00:16:25.307 --> 00:16:27.376
  • and you say something to themlike, you look so beautiful.
  • 00:16:27.376 --> 00:16:30.446
  • They actually almost like,it's like, they've hit a wall.
  • 00:16:30.446 --> 00:16:33.048
  • They stop and they'relike, oh, thank you.
  • 00:16:33.048 --> 00:16:36.251
  • People are so disarmedby the goodness of God.
  • 00:16:36.251 --> 00:16:41.256
  • But it was the goodness of God
  • 00:16:42.124 --> 00:16:43.358
  • that arrested eachand every one of us.
  • 00:16:43.358 --> 00:16:45.928
  • And if I do not sharethe goodness of God,
  • 00:16:45.928 --> 00:16:49.331
  • I will shut down therevival in my own heart.
  • 00:16:49.331 --> 00:16:54.136
  • And Christine, I know thatI've been in your meetings
  • 00:16:54.136 --> 00:16:57.005
  • where you have flowed inthe word of knowledge,
  • 00:16:57.005 --> 00:16:59.475
  • where you've been on a stage
  • 00:16:59.475 --> 00:17:01.777
  • and all of a suddenthe Holy spirit
  • 00:17:01.777 --> 00:17:04.146
  • will bring somethingto your remembrance.
  • 00:17:04.146 --> 00:17:07.783
  • And we just have tobe brave enough women
  • 00:17:07.783 --> 00:17:11.086
  • to discern if it'sGod talking to us.
  • 00:17:11.086 --> 00:17:14.590
  • And if it's about a blessing,it's usually God not Satan.
  • 00:17:14.590 --> 00:17:18.260
  • Can you speak into that?- Yeah.
  • 00:17:19.194 --> 00:17:21.196
  • I'm always so surprisedby testimonies that I hear
  • 00:17:21.196 --> 00:17:26.201
  • that someone, latein years will say,
  • 00:17:27.469 --> 00:17:32.207
  • no one had ever toldme that Jesus loved me
  • 00:17:32.207 --> 00:17:35.511
  • until I was 30 years old.
  • 00:17:35.511 --> 00:17:37.246
  • I've heard storieslike that so much.
  • 00:17:37.246 --> 00:17:39.481
  • And it just shocks thefire out of me sometimes
  • 00:17:39.481 --> 00:17:42.584
  • about how sometimes we think,
  • 00:17:42.584 --> 00:17:46.522
  • we've got TrinityBroadcasting Network.
  • 00:17:46.522 --> 00:17:48.123
  • We're spreading the, you know.
  • 00:17:48.123 --> 00:17:49.525
  • Not everybody'swatching TBN right now.
  • 00:17:49.525 --> 00:17:51.727
  • And there's so many people thatdon't know the love of God.
  • 00:17:51.727 --> 00:17:55.931
  • They've never been toldthat Jesus loves them
  • 00:17:55.931 --> 00:18:00.035
  • and cares for them.
  • 00:18:00.035 --> 00:18:01.503
  • And Chris, I know thatthat burns in your spirit
  • 00:18:01.503 --> 00:18:05.741
  • to tell the world that.
  • 00:18:05.741 --> 00:18:07.242
  • And that's something that wecan do no matter who you are,
  • 00:18:07.242 --> 00:18:12.147
  • no matter where you are,
  • 00:18:12.147 --> 00:18:13.382
  • is to tell somebodythat Jesus loves them.
  • 00:18:13.382 --> 00:18:15.284
  • - That's exactly right.
  • 00:18:16.952 --> 00:18:18.420
  • And also that we don'tthink it's just for people
  • 00:18:18.420 --> 00:18:21.089
  • on a platform.
  • 00:18:21.089 --> 00:18:22.858
  • I love that Lisabrought up in meetings
  • 00:18:22.858 --> 00:18:25.327
  • and we all do, butwith intentionality,
  • 00:18:25.327 --> 00:18:28.830
  • we wanna exercise the gifts.
  • 00:18:28.830 --> 00:18:30.332
  • But this is where I don't wantsome people to get caught up
  • 00:18:30.332 --> 00:18:33.135
  • on their thought of revival.
  • 00:18:33.135 --> 00:18:34.570
  • That you think I haveto go to a meeting
  • 00:18:34.570 --> 00:18:38.106
  • to watch God sort ofshow off in some way.
  • 00:18:38.106 --> 00:18:42.077
  • And I think that's why somethings have been shut down
  • 00:18:42.077 --> 00:18:44.279
  • in the past.
  • 00:18:44.279 --> 00:18:45.747
  • Like, is that God wasdoing a very genuine work
  • 00:18:45.747 --> 00:18:47.282
  • in people's hearts.
  • 00:18:47.282 --> 00:18:48.116
  • There's no denying that.
  • 00:18:48.116 --> 00:18:49.785
  • But sometimes when man getsinto the midst of that,
  • 00:18:49.785 --> 00:18:52.788
  • we could turn it into aperformance or a show.
  • 00:18:52.788 --> 00:18:54.990
  • And God's like, excuseme, this is not a circus.
  • 00:18:54.990 --> 00:18:56.959
  • I'm empowering my peopleand giving them my gifts
  • 00:18:56.959 --> 00:19:00.395
  • for a purpose in the world.
  • 00:19:00.395 --> 00:19:02.297
  • And I think that's why,
  • 00:19:02.297 --> 00:19:03.966
  • what we're talking about inthe midst of all of this.
  • 00:19:03.966 --> 00:19:06.768
  • I just wanna encourage you.
  • 00:19:06.768 --> 00:19:08.770
  • And I think listeningto all of us today,
  • 00:19:08.770 --> 00:19:10.739
  • that if you are saved,if you are born again
  • 00:19:10.739 --> 00:19:14.910
  • and filled withthe spirit of God,
  • 00:19:14.910 --> 00:19:16.745
  • God has given us gifts toreveal the goodness of God.
  • 00:19:16.745 --> 00:19:20.849
  • It shows the realityof God to people.
  • 00:19:20.849 --> 00:19:23.752
  • So I think revival ofhungering and thirsting
  • 00:19:23.752 --> 00:19:28.056
  • after righteousness,after spiritual gifts.
  • 00:19:28.056 --> 00:19:30.626
  • There are nine gifts.
  • 00:19:30.626 --> 00:19:31.426
  • There are nine fruits.
  • 00:19:31.426 --> 00:19:32.628
  • And I think if we'regonna make it in the day
  • 00:19:32.628 --> 00:19:34.396
  • in which we live, therehas gotta be a reviving of.
  • 00:19:34.396 --> 00:19:38.367
  • The gifts of thespirits are in us.
  • 00:19:38.367 --> 00:19:39.801
  • We just need to exercise them.
  • 00:19:39.801 --> 00:19:41.336
  • This is the issue,is that a lot of us
  • 00:19:41.336 --> 00:19:44.072
  • and you know what's at stake
  • 00:19:44.072 --> 00:19:45.974
  • just because a lot of us cannotbe bothered to stir it up?
  • 00:19:45.974 --> 00:19:48.377
  • What is at stake is an answer,a healing, a deliverance,
  • 00:19:48.377 --> 00:19:53.382
  • hope, comfort, love,grace for somebody else
  • 00:19:54.516 --> 00:19:56.785
  • on the other side of it.
  • 00:19:56.785 --> 00:19:58.887
  • And I think a sign of revivalis that we start to care
  • 00:19:58.887 --> 00:20:03.258
  • about what God wants todo in other people's lives
  • 00:20:03.258 --> 00:20:06.395
  • more than our owncomfort, our own ease
  • 00:20:06.395 --> 00:20:08.997
  • and what's in it just for us.
  • 00:20:08.997 --> 00:20:10.932
  • And so I know in this season,
  • 00:20:10.932 --> 00:20:14.036
  • because I need words ofknowledge and words of wisdom.
  • 00:20:14.036 --> 00:20:16.305
  • I can't travel like I used to.
  • 00:20:16.305 --> 00:20:17.939
  • I need to know what's goingon in some of my offices.
  • 00:20:17.939 --> 00:20:20.142
  • I need to know what's going on
  • 00:20:20.142 --> 00:20:21.343
  • in different regionsof the world.
  • 00:20:21.343 --> 00:20:22.844
  • So I ask the Lord all the time,show me, lead me, guide me.
  • 00:20:22.844 --> 00:20:26.648
  • And I think in the midst ofall of that, God is so willing.
  • 00:20:26.648 --> 00:20:30.619
  • We could spend a whole week.
  • 00:20:30.619 --> 00:20:32.287
  • I'm telling you.
  • 00:20:32.287 --> 00:20:33.722
  • I know most of the peoplepersonally on this.
  • 00:20:33.722 --> 00:20:35.223
  • We could spend a whole weektelling you story after story
  • 00:20:35.223 --> 00:20:37.459
  • after story about God'smiracle working power
  • 00:20:37.459 --> 00:20:41.863
  • through His gifts.
  • 00:20:41.863 --> 00:20:43.632
  • And you know what?
  • 00:20:43.632 --> 00:20:45.067
  • The people of the worldcannot give people
  • 00:20:45.067 --> 00:20:46.868
  • the gifts of theHoly spirit of God.
  • 00:20:46.868 --> 00:20:48.370
  • It's the people of Godthat need to do that.
  • 00:20:48.370 --> 00:20:51.940
  • The Holy spirit isgiven to the church.
  • 00:20:51.940 --> 00:20:53.375
  • The church hasgiven to the world.
  • 00:20:53.375 --> 00:20:55.077
  • And so we need to be exercisingthe gifts of the spirit
  • 00:20:55.077 --> 00:20:58.180
  • in the midst of all of this.
  • 00:20:58.180 --> 00:20:59.681
  • So I know where we've goneeverywhere this week, Alex.
  • 00:20:59.681 --> 00:21:04.319
  • But I know you'rea Holy ghost woman.
  • 00:21:05.487 --> 00:21:06.722
  • - Yeah.- Yeah.
  • 00:21:06.722 --> 00:21:08.323
  • I love the Holy spirit.
  • 00:21:08.323 --> 00:21:10.325
  • I love Him.
  • 00:21:10.325 --> 00:21:11.293
  • He's my best friend.
  • 00:21:11.293 --> 00:21:12.794
  • And if you're watchingthis and you're like, well,
  • 00:21:12.794 --> 00:21:14.996
  • I'm a housewife or I'mjust a regular girl.
  • 00:21:14.996 --> 00:21:18.567
  • Well guess what?
  • 00:21:18.567 --> 00:21:19.935
  • Ordinary peoplewho were unschooled
  • 00:21:19.935 --> 00:21:23.205
  • had been filledwith the Holy spirit
  • 00:21:24.806 --> 00:21:26.441
  • and they said, oh,you've been with God.
  • 00:21:26.441 --> 00:21:28.710
  • Ordinary people werefilled with the spirit.
  • 00:21:28.710 --> 00:21:31.646
  • That's what the disciples were.
  • 00:21:31.646 --> 00:21:32.881
  • And I think Jesuswas very intentional
  • 00:21:32.881 --> 00:21:35.150
  • about choosing the ordinary sothat God would get the glory.
  • 00:21:35.150 --> 00:21:38.720
  • So if you feel ordinary,
  • 00:21:38.720 --> 00:21:40.422
  • you have the ability to movein the gifts of the spirit.
  • 00:21:41.890 --> 00:21:44.693
  • And sometimes all we have todo is take one step of faith.
  • 00:21:44.693 --> 00:21:48.597
  • It's one step.
  • 00:21:48.597 --> 00:21:50.165
  • And sometimes that'sthe scariest one.
  • 00:21:50.165 --> 00:21:52.901
  • But you know what?
  • 00:21:52.901 --> 00:21:54.436
  • Like Lisa said, or I can'teven remember who said it,
  • 00:21:54.436 --> 00:21:55.937
  • but it was like, if it's anencouragement and a blessing,
  • 00:21:55.937 --> 00:21:58.173
  • it's from the Lord.
  • 00:21:58.173 --> 00:21:59.374
  • You don't have to belike, thus sayeth the Lord
  • 00:22:00.976 --> 00:22:03.345
  • and have the answerto the universe.
  • 00:22:03.345 --> 00:22:05.614
  • But maybe it is justan encouragement.
  • 00:22:05.614 --> 00:22:07.482
  • And I think if we can justlearn to step out of ourselves,
  • 00:22:07.482 --> 00:22:12.287
  • I think even our issuesof depression, anxiety
  • 00:22:12.287 --> 00:22:17.092
  • and all of those thingsactually dissipate
  • 00:22:17.092 --> 00:22:19.928
  • when we start tobe others focused.
  • 00:22:19.928 --> 00:22:21.897
  • And what God's actually gonnado is reveal something in you
  • 00:22:21.897 --> 00:22:24.800
  • that is healing to you asyou bring healing to others.
  • 00:22:24.800 --> 00:22:29.738
  • So I am so excitedand I just know Lisa,
  • 00:22:29.738 --> 00:22:33.675
  • that you move in thegifts of the spirit.
  • 00:22:33.675 --> 00:22:36.578
  • We all move in thegifts of the spirit.
  • 00:22:36.578 --> 00:22:38.280
  • And so I think you shouldpray for us and help us
  • 00:22:38.280 --> 00:22:41.917
  • just know, how do wekeep this fan alive?
  • 00:22:41.917 --> 00:22:45.554
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:22:46.655 --> 00:22:47.489
  • Not long ago I met thisbeautiful young girl.
  • 00:22:48.657 --> 00:22:51.893
  • I happened to be in a spa.
  • 00:22:51.893 --> 00:22:54.229
  • This is beforesocial distancing.
  • 00:22:54.229 --> 00:22:56.231
  • And she saw me andshe started crying.
  • 00:22:56.231 --> 00:22:59.334
  • And I thought, oh my gosh,
  • 00:22:59.334 --> 00:23:00.535
  • is this one of myson's ex-girlfriends?
  • 00:23:00.535 --> 00:23:02.270
  • Like, why is she cryingwhen she sees me?
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:04.573
  • And she opened up her arms
  • 00:23:04.573 --> 00:23:06.341
  • and she had (mumbles)in her hands.
  • 00:23:06.341 --> 00:23:09.878
  • And I stood up and Iwent over to hug her.
  • 00:23:09.878 --> 00:23:13.014
  • And she just startedto talk about her life
  • 00:23:13.014 --> 00:23:15.817
  • and how she was frozen.
  • 00:23:15.817 --> 00:23:18.687
  • She was frozen because shedidn't want to miss God.
  • 00:23:18.687 --> 00:23:22.390
  • And I think there'stoo many Christians
  • 00:23:22.390 --> 00:23:24.493
  • that are in the stance ofbeing frozen right now.
  • 00:23:24.493 --> 00:23:28.263
  • And so I ponderedlater in my hotel room
  • 00:23:28.263 --> 00:23:30.732
  • about this horrible frozennessof the children of God.
  • 00:23:30.732 --> 00:23:35.604
  • And God said, youtell my people,
  • 00:23:35.604 --> 00:23:38.173
