  • - FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:00.180 --> 00:00:03.180
  • OH, HE IS HERE
  • 00:00:03.180 --> 00:00:05.220
  • WITH REDEMPTION
  • 00:00:05.220 --> 00:00:06.280
  • FROM THE FALL
  • 00:00:06.280 --> 00:00:08.270
  • THAT WE MAY LIVE
  • 00:00:08.270 --> 00:00:11.270
  • FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:15.110
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:15.120 --> 00:00:18.120
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:18.140 --> 00:00:21.140
  • - WELL, IF YOU HAVE
  • 00:00:26.220 --> 00:00:28.040
  • YOUR BIBLES THIS MORNING,
  • 00:00:28.040 --> 00:00:28.250
  • LET'S OPEN TO THE BOOK
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:29.250
  • IS A VERSE I WENT TO SHARE
  • 00:00:43.160 --> 00:00:46.160
  • WITH YOU AS A LAUNCH
  • 00:00:46.160 --> 00:00:47.130
  • FOR WHAT I THINK THE LORD
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:48.220
  • IS SAYING TO US IN THIS HOUR,
  • 00:00:49.080 --> 00:00:52.080
  • AND IS REALLY WANTING US
  • 00:00:52.080 --> 00:00:54.010
  • TO RESPOND TO,
  • 00:00:54.010 --> 00:00:55.290
  • AND OPERATE OUT OF
  • 00:00:55.290 --> 00:00:58.250
  • IN A MEANINGFUL WAY,
  • 00:00:58.250 --> 00:00:59.260
  • AND IN A NEW WAY, EVEN.
  • 00:00:59.260 --> 00:01:01.090
  • AND THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT,
  • 00:01:01.180 --> 00:01:04.180
  • THE BEATITUDE SPECIFICALLY,
  • 00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:06.170
  • MATTHEW 5:6, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:01:06.170 --> 00:01:09.110
  • "BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HUNGER
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:11.270
  • AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:01:12.230 --> 00:01:15.230
  • FOR THEY SHALL BE SATISFIED."
  • 00:01:16.150 --> 00:01:19.150
  • IF YOU'RE HUNGERING
  • 00:01:19.150 --> 00:01:20.010
  • AND THIRSTING FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:22.020
  • YOU'LL BE SATISFIED.
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:23.220
  • IF YOU'RE HUNGER AND THIRSTING
  • 00:01:23.220 --> 00:01:24.210
  • FOR MORE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:25.260
  • I THINK THE LORD'S
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:26.120
  • GOING TO RESPOND WITH MORE
  • 00:01:26.120 --> 00:01:27.120
  • OF HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:30.050
  • NOW, RECENTLY,
  • 00:01:30.050 --> 00:01:31.030
  • I'VE BEEN SHARING
  • 00:01:31.030 --> 00:01:33.210
  • FROM EZEKIEL 37,
  • 00:01:33.210 --> 00:01:35.130
  • IN THE GREAT VALLEY
  • 00:01:35.130 --> 00:01:36.160
  • OF DRY BONES,
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:37.180
  • AND THE LORD SAID TO EZEKIEL,
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:40.100
  • "CAN THESE BONES LIVE?"
  • 00:01:40.100 --> 00:01:42.080
  • AND EZEKIEL KIND OF
  • 00:01:42.080 --> 00:01:43.090
  • CHICKENED OUT AND SAID,
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:44.030
  • "WELL, ALMIGHTY GOD,
  • 00:01:44.030 --> 00:01:46.140
  • ALL KNOWING GOD,
  • 00:01:46.140 --> 00:01:48.020
  • ALL POWERFUL GOD, YOU KNOW,"
  • 00:01:48.230 --> 00:01:51.230
  • AND THEN HE SAYS, "LOOK,"
  • 00:01:51.230 --> 00:01:53.210
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:55.050
  • "PROPHESIED OF THESE BONES
  • 00:01:55.050 --> 00:01:56.060
  • TO COME TOGETHER AND PUT,
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:58.120
  • HAVE FLESH ON THEM."
  • 00:01:58.120 --> 00:01:59.200
  • AND SO HE DOES,
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:00.180
  • AND AS HE BEGAN TO PROPHESY,
  • 00:02:00.180 --> 00:02:02.270
  • IT BEGAN TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:04.210
  • AND THEN HE SAID,
  • 00:02:04.210 --> 00:02:05.080
  • "BUT THERE WAS NO LIFE IN THEM,
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:06.070
  • THERE WAS NO BREATH IN THEM."
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:07.100
  • AND HE SAID, HE PROPHESIED
  • 00:02:07.100 --> 00:02:08.280
  • OF THE WINDS OF THE NORTH,
  • 00:02:08.280 --> 00:02:09.260
  • THE SOUTH, THE EAST
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:10.190
  • AND THE WEST.
  • 00:02:10.190 --> 00:02:11.170
  • AND THE BREATH OF GOD TO COME.
  • 00:02:11.170 --> 00:02:13.010
  • AND BREATH CAME INTO THEM,
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:14.290
  • LIFE CAME INTO THE BODIES THEN,
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.210
  • AND IT WAS AN EXCEEDINGLY
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:18.090
  • GREAT ARMY.
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:20.200
  • AND THAT'S WHAT THE LORD
  • 00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:21.110
  • WANTS TODAY.
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:22.120
  • A GREAT ARMY
  • 00:02:22.120 --> 00:02:24.030
  • TO ARISE, AMEN.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:26.280
  • OKAY.
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:27.130
  • WE GOT AN ARMY
  • 00:02:27.130 --> 00:02:28.000
  • OF FOUR OR FIVE, ALRIGHT.
  • 00:02:29.040 --> 00:02:32.040
  • SO STAY WITH ME HERE.
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:34.230
  • WHEN I WAS IN MALAYSIA,
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:37.070
  • I WAS STUNNED
  • 00:02:37.070 --> 00:02:39.140
  • AT THE AMOUNT OF HUNGER
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.130
  • AND THIRST AND HOLY DESPERATION
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.280
  • FOR GOD.
  • 00:02:45.280 --> 00:02:47.290
  • AND THE ONLY THING
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:48.170
  • I COULD BEGIN TO THINK OF
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:50.220
  • TO COMPARE IT TO
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:52.110
  • WAS ABSOLUTE NUTTINESS
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:56.070
  • AND SHEER FANATICISM
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:58.070
  • OF FOOTBALL FANS IN AMERICA.
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:02.150
  • I MEANT, IT'S THE ONLY THING
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:03.110
  • I COULD BEGIN TO EVEN,
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:04.210
  • AND THAT DIDN'T EVEN COME CLOSE.
  • 00:03:04.210 --> 00:03:07.190
  • AND I THINK OF ALL KINDS OF FANS
  • 00:03:07.190 --> 00:03:09.240
  • OF DIFFERENT SPORTS AND THINGS.
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:11.070
  • BUT THE ONES THAT GET
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:12.130
  • THE BIGGEST KICK OUT OF,
  • 00:03:12.130 --> 00:03:13.120
  • AND MY DAUGHTER
  • 00:03:13.120 --> 00:03:14.150
  • WILL GET A KICK OUT OF THIS,
  • 00:03:14.150 --> 00:03:15.170
  • BECAUSE SHE'S MARRIED
  • 00:03:15.170 --> 00:03:17.140
  • TO AN OAKLAND RAIDER'S FAN,
  • 00:03:17.140 --> 00:03:19.000
  • BUT THOSE OAKLAND RAIDER FANS
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:20.100
  • THAT SHOW UP WITH SPIKES
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:21.170
  • IN THEIR HEAD, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:22.170
  • AND THEY'RE JUST,
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:23.240
  • [GROWLS],
  • 00:03:23.240 --> 00:03:24.200
  • THEY'RE JUST, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:26.160
  • THEY'RE LIKE, THEY'RE RAIDERS.
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:27.270
  • YOU KNOW, THEY'RE JUST,
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:28.220
  • YOU KNOW, AND THEY COME ACROSS
  • 00:03:28.220 --> 00:03:29.140
  • JUST SO MEAN LOOKING AND FIERCE.
  • 00:03:29.160 --> 00:03:32.160
  • AND THAT ALONE SCARES
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:33.100
  • THE OTHER TEAM.
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:34.100
  • JUST THEIR FANS.
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:36.020
  • NOT SCARED OF THE TEAM
  • 00:03:36.020 --> 00:03:37.180
  • THE RAIDERS,
  • 00:03:37.180 --> 00:03:38.180
  • THEY'RE SCARED
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:39.050
  • OF THE FANS OF THE RAIDERS.
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:40.030
  • AND, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:40.220
  • IT JUST REMINDED OF THAT.
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:43.260
  • BUT THE FOLKS
  • 00:03:43.260 --> 00:03:44.160
  • THAT I ENCOUNTERED IN MALAYSIA,
  • 00:03:44.160 --> 00:03:46.100
  • BECAUSE THERE'S PERSECUTION,
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:49.270
  • ARE SO HUNGRY
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:50.250
  • FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:53.200
  • A DONKEY COULD HAVE
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:54.160
  • GOTTEN UP AND PREACHED,
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:55.150
  • I'M JUST TELLING YOU.
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:57.130
  • BECAUSE THEY PULLED IT
  • 00:03:57.130 --> 00:03:58.000
  • RIGHT OUT OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:04:00.160
  • AND IT'S WHAT THE LORD'S
  • 00:04:00.160 --> 00:04:01.090
  • BEEN SHOWING ME HERE IN WAKO
  • 00:04:01.090 --> 00:04:04.020
  • WHEN I'VE BEEN HAMMERING
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:04.280
  • ON MARK 5, AND MARK 6.
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:08.140
  • AND MARK 5, A WOMAN
  • 00:04:08.140 --> 00:04:09.260
  • WAS SO DESPERATE FOR GOD
  • 00:04:09.260 --> 00:04:12.020
  • AND FOR A HEALING,
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:13.190
  • THAT JESUS DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:04:13.190 --> 00:04:15.010
  • PARTICIPATE KNOWINGLY,
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:16.250
  • IF SHE'S, SHE SAID,
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:18.010
  • "IF I COULD JUST TOUCH
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:18.230
  • HIS CLOAK, I'LL BE HEALED."
  • 00:04:18.230 --> 00:04:20.140
  • AND HE HAD TURNED AROUND,
  • 00:04:20.140 --> 00:04:21.150
  • BECAUSE HE FELT
  • 00:04:21.150 --> 00:04:21.260
  • THE POWER LEAVE HIM,
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.130
  • BECAUSE IT GOT DRAWN OUT
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:25.020
  • BY A PERSON THAT WAS DESPERATE
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:27.020
  • FOR A TOUCH FROM GOD.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:35.040
  • THE NEXT CHAPTER, SAME SPEAKER,
  • 00:04:35.040 --> 00:04:37.240
  • DIFFERENT AUDIENCE.
  • 00:04:37.240 --> 00:04:39.040
  • AND JESUS COULD DO
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:40.160
  • A VERY FEW MIRACLES THERE,
  • 00:04:40.160 --> 00:04:41.230
  • AND HE MARVELED
  • 00:04:41.230 --> 00:04:43.010
  • AT THEIR UNBELIEF.
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:45.200
  • THE LORD COULDN'T DO MUCH, WHY?
  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:47.120
  • BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:47.280
  • WOULDN'T PARTICIPATE.
  • 00:04:47.280 --> 00:04:50.080
  • THEY WERE SKEPTICAL.
  • 00:04:50.080 --> 00:04:53.030
  • WE SAW THIS GUY GROW UP.
  • 00:04:53.030 --> 00:04:55.130
  • IT'D BE LIKE ME PREACHING
  • 00:04:55.130 --> 00:04:56.060
  • DOWN IN TEMPLE.
  • 00:04:56.060 --> 00:04:58.000
  • WE SAW THAT GUY GROW UP
  • 00:04:58.000 --> 00:04:59.030
  • IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL,
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:00.080
  • AND IN JUNIOR HIGH,
  • 00:05:00.080 --> 00:05:01.230
  • AND IN HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:03.190
  • AND LET'S FORGET
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:04.210
  • HIGH SCHOOL, RIGHT.
  • 00:05:04.210 --> 00:05:07.010
  • I GOT A LETTER RECENTLY,
  • 00:05:07.010 --> 00:05:08.000
  • AND I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:08.160
  • IF HE'S WATCHING RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:05:08.160 --> 00:05:10.060
  • DAVID PENNINGTON,
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:11.050
  • IS RETIRED AND HE WROTE ME
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:15.090
  • A VERY NICE LETTER.
  • 00:05:15.090 --> 00:05:17.030
  • REMEMBERS ME
  • 00:05:17.030 --> 00:05:17.220
  • A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:18.130
  • THAN WHAT THE REALITY WAS.
  • 00:05:18.130 --> 00:05:20.160
  • HE REMEMBERED ME,
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:21.060
  • AS A VERY NICE BOY
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.010
  • IN HIGH SCHOOL,
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:22.250
  • AND THAT REALLY WASN'T THE CASE.
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:24.060
  • SORRY, DAVID,
  • 00:05:24.060 --> 00:05:24.250
  • IF YOU'RE WATCHING.
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.190
  • BUT HE WAS JUST AMAZED
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:28.110
  • AT WHAT HE WAS SEEING
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:29.080
  • NOW, RIGHT.
  • 00:05:29.240 --> 00:05:32.240
  • WELL, AREN'T YOU GLAD
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:33.230
  • YOU'RE NOT JUDGED
  • 00:05:33.230 --> 00:05:34.160
  • BY YOUR CHILDHOOD
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:35.220
  • OR YOUNGER YEARS,
  • 00:05:35.220 --> 00:05:36.190
  • PERHAPS SOME OF US?
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:38.080
  • ALRIGHT.
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:39.000
  • WELL BUT JESUS
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:39.220
  • HAD A PERFECT LIFE AS A CHILD,
  • 00:05:39.220 --> 00:05:41.240
  • A PERFECT LIFE
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:42.180
  • IN HIS YOUNGER YEARS,
  • 00:05:42.180 --> 00:05:43.220
  • AND STILL
  • 00:05:43.220 --> 00:05:44.100
  • THEY'RE SKEPTICAL OF HIM.
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:46.110
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT,
  • 00:05:46.110 --> 00:05:48.250
  • HE COULD DO VERY LITTLE THERE.
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:50.090
  • NOW WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE?
  • 00:05:50.090 --> 00:05:51.150
  • AND I'M ALWAYS ASKING THIS,
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:52.210
  • AND I'M SAYING IT AGAIN,
  • 00:05:52.210 --> 00:05:54.120
  • BECAUSE THE LORD WANTS ME
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:05:55.050
  • TO POUND IT, AND POUND IT,
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:56.160
  • AND POUND IT.
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:57.280
  • I ASK YOU RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:06:00.020
  • WAS JESUS ANY LESS
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:01.280
  • THE SON OF GOD
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:03.140
  • IN MARK 6 THAN IN CHAPTER 5?
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:06.210
  • WHEN ALL IT TOOK WAS JUST,
  • 00:06:06.210 --> 00:06:07.180
  • "IF I COULD JUST TOUCH
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:08.160
  • THE CLOAK."
  • 00:06:08.160 --> 00:06:09.160
  • AND HE DIDN'T EVEN PARTICIPATE,
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:11.150
  • AND SHE DREW IT OUT.
  • 00:06:11.150 --> 00:06:14.010
  • AND SHE WAS HEALED.
  • 00:06:14.010 --> 00:06:16.260
  • NO.
  • 00:06:16.260 --> 00:06:17.220
  • WHAT CHANGED?
  • 00:06:17.220 --> 00:06:19.030
  • THE AUDIENCE CHANGED.
  • 00:06:21.180 --> 00:06:24.180
  • THE AUDIENCE.
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.060
  • SO I'M HERE TO TELL YOU,
  • 00:06:26.060 --> 00:06:27.050
  • WHEN SOME, WHEN A GROUP GATHERS
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:29.190
  • TO WORSHIP, AND PEOPLE
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:30.240
  • NEED PRAYER,
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:31.260
  • AND THE POWER OF GOD IS THERE,
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:34.040
  • IF THINGS HAPPEN,
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:35.240
  • IT'S MORE A REFLECTION
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:37.270
  • OF THE HUNGER OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:39.150
  • VERSES THE SPECIALNESS
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:43.040
  • OR ANOINTEDNESS
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:44.130
  • OF THE PERSON PREACHING,
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:46.100
  • OR MINISTERING, OR PRAYING.
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:49.160
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:53.000
  • SO WE GET ALL CAUGHT UP
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:54.050
  • IN WHO'S COMING,
  • 00:06:54.050 --> 00:06:55.010
  • AND WHO'S GOING TO SPEAK.
  • 00:06:55.010 --> 00:06:56.020
  • AND BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:56.210
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:56.210 --> 00:06:57.080
  • THAT I WANT TO GET AROUND
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:58.120
  • AND HANG AROUND.
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:06:59.150
  • I MEAN, I WANT TO HANG AROUND
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:00.150
  • THE PEOPLE THAT HANG
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:01.110
  • AROUND JESUS.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:02.180
  • BECAUSE I WANT MORE
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:03.090
  • OF WHAT THEY'VE GOT.
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:04.140
  • BELIEVE, AND I,
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:05.060
  • THAT'S LEGITIMATE, ALRIGHT?
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:07.030
  • BECAUSE THINGS NEED
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:07.200
  • TO BE IMPARTED.
  • 00:07:07.200 --> 00:07:10.000
  • BUT I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:10.190
  • WHEN WE GATHER,
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:11.250
  • IF THINGS HAPPEN SUPERNATURALLY,
  • 00:07:11.250 --> 00:07:14.170
  • IT REFLECTS THE HUNGER,
  • 00:07:14.170 --> 00:07:16.080
  • THE THIRST FOR GOD,
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:17.240
  • AND THE DESPERATION OF THOSE
  • 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:19.100
  • THAT NEED SOMETHING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:22.040
  • AND IF YOU DON'T PULL ON HEAVEN,
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:24.030
  • VERY LITTLE'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:27.050
  • WHEN I WAS MALAYSIA,
  • 00:07:27.050 --> 00:07:28.030
  • THEY WERE SO PULLING ON HEAVEN,
  • 00:07:28.030 --> 00:07:30.050
  • DOZENS AND DOZENS
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:31.060
  • AND DOZENS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.020
  • RECEIVED SUPERNATURAL HEALING.
  • 00:07:32.020 --> 00:07:34.080
  • PEOPLE THAT COULDN'T WALK
  • 00:07:34.080 --> 00:07:35.060
  • COULD WALK.
  • 00:07:35.060 --> 00:07:36.070
  • PEOPLE THAT COULDN'T SEE
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:37.020
  • BEGAN TO SEE.
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:38.210
  • PEOPLE WITH JUST BLURRED VISION,
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:39.240
  • IT CLEARED UP.
  • 00:07:39.240 --> 00:07:40.260
  • PEOPLE WITH SPOTS IN THEIR EYES,
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:42.120
  • THE SPOTS DISAPPEARED.
  • 00:07:42.160 --> 00:07:45.160
  • A WOMAN HAD FALLEN DOWN,
  • 00:07:45.160 --> 00:07:46.200
  • AND I'M SORRY I FORGOT
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:47.210
  • TO GIVE PICTURES TO JASON.
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:49.120
  • I'LL GIVE THEM TO HIM.
  • 00:07:49.120 --> 00:07:51.080
  • AND THERE'S A WOMAN
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:52.160
  • IN HER LATE 70'S,
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:53.160
  • AND SHE'S STANDING ON A CHAIR,
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.080
  • JUMPING UP AND DOWN
  • 00:07:55.080 --> 00:07:56.130
  • WAVING HER ARMS.
  • 00:07:56.130 --> 00:07:58.150
  • NOT ONLY WAS HER VISION HEALED,
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:08:00.110
  • BUT SHE COULDN'T LIFT HER ARM,
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:02.070
  • SHE COULDN'T LIFT HER LEG.
  • 00:08:02.070 --> 00:08:03.210
  • SHE HAD TO HAVE HELP WALKING,
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.160
  • AND SHE'S, SHE CLIMBED UP
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:06.270
  • ON HER CHAIR,
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:07.160
  • AND SHE'S JUMPING UP
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:08.090
  • AND DOWN DOING THIS.
  • 00:08:08.090 --> 00:08:10.140
  • THAT SOUNDS KIND OF SILLY,
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.250
  • AREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:12.210
  • A LITTLE MORE DIGNIFIED
  • 00:08:12.210 --> 00:08:13.170
  • IN CHURCH?
  • 00:08:13.170 --> 00:08:14.240
  • WELL NOT WHEN
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:15.100
  • THAT HAPPENS TO YOU.
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:17.020
  • I MEAN, YOU DON'T CARE.
  • 00:08:17.020 --> 00:08:19.270
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:22.160
  • AND SO, THESE KIND OF THINGS
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:23.150
  • KEPT HAPPENING.
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:24.030
  • AND THEN PROPHETIC WORDS,
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.150
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:08:25.150 --> 00:08:26.110
  • I MINISTERED TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:27.180
  • AND I MINISTERED TO A YOUNG MAN,
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:28.280
  • AND HIS PARENTS WERE THERE,
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:30.270
  • AND GOD GAVE ME
  • 00:08:30.270 --> 00:08:32.010
  • VERY SPECIFIC THINGS,
  • 00:08:32.010 --> 00:08:32.270
  • PROPHETIC WORDS.
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:34.250
  • AND I SPOKE
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:35.200
  • INTO HIS REAL CALLING
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:37.090
  • IN THE CALLING OF GOD
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:38.200
  • FOR HIS LIFE AND HIS VOCATION.
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:40.230
  • AND HE SAYS, "IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:08:40.230 --> 00:08:42.160
  • IF YOU STUDY ENGINEERING,
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:44.280
  • BUT THIS IS THE LORD
  • 00:08:44.280 --> 00:08:45.280
  • WANTS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:46.270
  • YOU CAN STUDY ENGINEERING,
  • 00:08:46.270 --> 00:08:48.120
  • BUT THE LORD
  • 00:08:48.120 --> 00:08:48.270
  • WANTS YOU TO DO THIS."
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:49.210
  • AND I WENT ON AND ON AND ON.
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:50.260
  • AND THEY JUST ASSUMED
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:52.170
  • THAT THE YOUNG MAN
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:53.100
  • HAD TOLD ME
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:53.250
  • HE WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:54.160
  • AN ENGINEERING MAJOR.
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:57.000
  • THEY DIDN'T.
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:57.290
  • HE DIDN'T.
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:08:59.060
  • I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:08:59.060 --> 00:08:59.210
  • THAT IN THE NATURAL.
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:00.210
  • I JUST THREW IT OUT THERE,
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.130
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:03.020
  • I WAS HEARING.
  • 00:09:03.020 --> 00:09:04.140
  • AND THEY WERE SHOCKED.
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:05.240
  • SURELY SOMEBODY TOLD YOU.
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:07.180
  • I SAID, "NO, MY NAME
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:09.120
  • IS NOT SHIRLEY,
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:11.270
  • AND NOBODY TOLD ME.
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:14.140
  • EXCEPT THE PERSON CALLED
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:15.190
  • HOLY SPIRIT,"
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:17.160
  • OKAY, SO THAT YOU WOULD KNOW,
  • 00:09:17.160 --> 00:09:19.180
  • AS ASSIGN OF WONDER
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:20.210
  • THAT WHAT I'M SAYING
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:21.270
  • IS THE WORD OF THE LORD.
  • 00:09:21.270 --> 00:09:24.010
  • AND SO, I DID THAT
  • 00:09:24.010 --> 00:09:24.200
  • WITH DOZENS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:24.200 --> 00:09:26.070
  • POLITICAL LEADERS,
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:27.060
  • DIFFERENT LEADERS CAME
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.150
  • AND SET UP
  • 00:09:28.150 --> 00:09:29.000
  • PRIVATE APPOINTMENTS.
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:29.230
  • AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
  • 00:09:29.230 --> 00:09:30.180
  • WAS JUST FLOWING.
  • 00:09:30.180 --> 00:09:31.220
  • AND I MINISTERED THAT WAY,
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:33.030
  • AND IT'S SOMETHING
  • 00:09:33.030 --> 00:09:33.250
  • THAT ANYONE HERE CAN DO, OKAY.
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:37.120
  • AND I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:09:37.120 --> 00:09:38.060
  • THAT IN JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:09:38.060 --> 00:09:39.040
  • BUT YOU NEED TO BELIEVE.
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:40.140
  • AND I LOVE WHAT F.F. BOSWORTH
  • 00:09:40.140 --> 00:09:42.120
  • SAID IN HIS BOOK,
  • 00:09:42.120 --> 00:09:43.290
  • "CHRIST THE HEALER,"
  • 00:09:43.290 --> 00:09:45.050
  • WHEN HE SAID, "STOP DOUBTING
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:47.060
  • YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:48.260
  • AND START DOUBTING
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:49.270
  • YOUR DOUBTS."
  • 00:09:49.270 --> 00:09:52.130
  • LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:53.020
  • "STOP DOUBTING YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:54.060
  • AND START DOUBTING YOUR DOUBTS."
  • 00:09:54.060 --> 00:09:56.010
  • THOSE DOUBTS ARE FROM THE ENEMY,
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:58.100
  • THEY'RE NOT FROM GOD.
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:10:00.050
  • GOD IS NOT TEMPTING
  • 00:10:00.050 --> 00:10:00.290
  • YOU TO DOUBT.
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:03.090
  • HE'S SAYING,
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:03.250
  • "PUT YOUR FAITH IN ME."
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.190
  • THE GOD WHO MADE THE SUN,
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:07.170
  • THE HEAVENS, AND THE EARTH,
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:09.040
  • IS NOT LIMITED IN HIS POWER.
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:12.140
  • HEAVEN'S WAITING ON EARTH.
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:14.180
  • SO, AS I CONTINUE
  • 00:10:14.180 --> 00:10:15.200
  • TO MINISTER AND ONE, ON ONE DAY,
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:18.240
  • I PREACHED FIVE TIMES.
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:21.120
  • AND THEY JUST,
  • 00:10:21.120 --> 00:10:22.090
  • AND I JUST COULDN'T SAY
  • 00:10:22.090 --> 00:10:24.060
  • NO TO THEM.
  • 00:10:24.060 --> 00:10:24.280
  • SO I, IN ONE DAY,
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:26.060
  • I'VE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE.
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:28.030
  • PREACHED FIVE MESSAGES.
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:30.070
  • AND MY VOICE WAS GIVING OUT
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:31.250
  • BY THE END OF THE DAY.
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:32.290
  • BUT IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:10:32.290 --> 00:10:33.160
  • OF ONE OF THOSE SERMONS,
  • 00:10:33.160 --> 00:10:34.200
  • WHICH WAS JUST A WEEK AGO
  • 00:10:34.200 --> 00:10:36.160
  • YESTERDAY, I SAID,
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:38.170
  • BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT
  • 00:10:38.170 --> 00:10:39.060
  • OF IDOLATRY IN THIS NATION.
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:41.130
  • I DECLARED TO THEM THAT THE LORD
  • 00:10:41.130 --> 00:10:42.160
  • WAS BRINGING DOWN IDOLATRY
  • 00:10:42.160 --> 00:10:44.270
  • IN THE NATION,
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:45.270
  • AND THEY WOULD SEE IDOLATRY
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:47.210
  • COME TO AN END,
  • 00:10:47.210 --> 00:10:49.010
  • MOSTLY WAS GOING TO COME DOWN,
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:51.160
  • BECAUSE THERE'S JUST A LOT
  • 00:10:51.160 --> 00:10:52.050
  • OF IDOL WORSHIP THAT GOES ON.
  • 00:10:52.050 --> 00:10:54.050
  • AND I SAID, "AND SO MUCH SO
  • 00:10:54.050 --> 00:10:55.290
  • IS THAT GOING TO HAPPEN,
  • 00:10:55.290 --> 00:10:57.200
  • GOD'S GOING TO GIVE YOU A SIGN,
  • 00:10:57.200 --> 00:10:59.100
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:10:59.270
  • TO SEE A FLOOD,
  • 00:10:59.270 --> 00:11:01.120
  • AND THAT WILL BE A SIGN
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:02.090
  • TO YOU THAT IDOLATRY
  • 00:11:02.090 --> 00:11:04.150
  • IS COMING DOWN IN THAT NATION."
  • 00:11:04.150 --> 00:11:06.070
  • IMMEDIATELY, SKEPTICISM CAME OUT
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:08.070
  • FROM TWO OR THREE PEOPLE,
  • 00:11:08.070 --> 00:11:09.010
  • SAY, THEY SAID,
  • 00:11:09.010 --> 00:11:10.000
  • "IT NEVER FLOODS HERE.
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:11.260
  • NO, IT DOESN'T FLOOD HERE."
  • 00:11:11.260 --> 00:11:13.120
  • I SAID, "WELL, IT'S GOING TO,"
  • 00:11:13.120 --> 00:11:15.010
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF MY MESSAGE,
  • 00:11:15.010 --> 00:11:15.280
  • I SAID, "IT'S GOING
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:16.180
  • TO FLOOD HERE,
  • 00:11:16.180 --> 00:11:17.210
  • AND IT'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:11:17.210 --> 00:11:18.240
  • A SIGN TO YOU.
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:19.130
  • WHEN, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:21.110
  • OKAY, I'M JUST
  • 00:11:21.110 --> 00:11:21.290
  • THE MAILMAN, OKAY.
  • 00:11:21.290 --> 00:11:23.230
  • I DIDN'T WRITE THE MAIL.
  • 00:11:23.230 --> 00:11:25.280
  • I'M DECLARING TO YOU
  • 00:11:25.280 --> 00:11:27.080
  • THE WORD OF THE LORD.
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:30.070
  • ON FRIDAY, I GET MESSAGES
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:31.100
  • ON MESSENGER AND FACEBOOK,
  • 00:11:31.100 --> 00:11:33.220
  • "PASTOR, IT'S FLOODING
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:34.240
  • IN THE CAPITAL
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:35.140
  • OF OUR STATE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:11:35.140 --> 00:11:36.270
  • IT'S FLOODING,
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:37.180
  • IT'S FLOODING."
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:40.270
  • AND I SAID, "OKAY.
  • 00:11:40.270 --> 00:11:43.110
  • I'M NOT EXCITED ABOUT THE FLOOD.
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:44.260
  • I'M EXCITED THAT IDOLATRY'S
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:45.230
  • COMING DOWN.
  • 00:11:45.230 --> 00:11:46.220
  • AND NOW YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:11:46.220 --> 00:11:47.090
  • TO BELIEVE IT."
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:50.280
  • NOW, WHY DO I SHARE THAT
  • 00:11:50.280 --> 00:11:52.150
  • WITH YOU?
  • 00:11:52.150 --> 00:11:53.030
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE
  • 00:11:53.030 --> 00:11:54.010
  • THAT EVERY CHILD OF GOD
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:55.040
  • CAN HEAR HIS VOICE.
  • 00:11:55.040 --> 00:11:56.280
  • HE SAYS, "MY SHEEP
  • 00:11:56.280 --> 00:11:57.220
  • HEAR MY VOICE."
  • 00:11:57.220 --> 00:11:59.150
  • AND ALL OF PEOPLE THAT CRITICIZE
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:02.010
  • PROPHETIC MINISTRY LIKE THAT,
  • 00:12:02.010 --> 00:12:03.280
  • NEED TO TAKE OUT JOHN 10
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:06.060
  • FROM THEIR BIBLES,
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:07.280
  • BECAUSE MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE,
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:09.270
  • AND I GIVE ET --,
  • 00:12:09.270 --> 00:12:11.000
  • THEY FOLLOW ME AND I GIVE
  • 00:12:11.000 --> 00:12:11.250
  • ETERNAL LIFE TO THEM.
  • 00:12:11.250 --> 00:12:12.180
  • OKAY, THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:13.050
  • JESUS SAID.
  • 00:12:13.050 --> 00:12:14.150
  • OKAY.
  • 00:12:14.150 --> 00:12:15.200
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:16.030
  • I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:16.170
  • HOW YOU TAKE OUT JOHN 10,
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:18.090
  • BUT LEAVE IN JOHN 3:16.
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:20.160
  • OKAY, "FOR GOD SO LOVED
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:22.020
  • THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE
  • 00:12:22.020 --> 00:12:22.210
  • HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:23.260
  • THAT WHOSOEVER
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:24.120
  • BELIEVETH IN HIM"
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:24.290
  • WOULD HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:27.050
  • WOULD NOT PERISH
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:27.250
  • BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:29.170
  • OKAY, WHICH DO YOU WANT
  • 00:12:29.170 --> 00:12:30.230
  • TO BELIEVE?
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:31.290
  • YOU KNOW, THAT JESUS
  • 00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:33.220
  • WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN?
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:35.060
  • OH YEAH, THAT'S OKAY,
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:35.280
  • THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:12:35.280 --> 00:12:37.080
  • THAT HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:38.070
  • OH YEAH, THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:12:38.070 --> 00:12:41.020
  • BUT THAT HE COULD STILL
  • 00:12:41.020 --> 00:12:42.230
  • SPEAK TO US,
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:43.180
  • THE ONE WHO CALLS
  • 00:12:43.180 --> 00:12:44.250
  • HIMSELF THE WORD?
  • 00:12:44.250 --> 00:12:47.100
  • YES, HE STILL SPEAKS TO US.
  • 00:12:47.100 --> 00:12:48.280
  • IT'S JUST IN POPULAR SOCIETY
  • 00:12:48.280 --> 00:12:50.100
  • AND IN THE NEWS,
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:51.230
  • AND WHERE THE PRINCE
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:53.000
  • OF THE POWER OF THE AIR,
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:53.240
  • AND THE ENEMY CONTROLS THINGS,
  • 00:12:53.240 --> 00:12:55.130
  • THEY WANT TO MAKE FUN
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:56.110
  • OF PEOPLE THAT SAY
  • 00:12:56.110 --> 00:12:57.060
  • THEY HEARD FROM GOD.
  • 00:12:57.060 --> 00:12:58.130
  • AND USUALLY IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:12:59.140
  • IT'S IN THE NEWS BECAUSE
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:00.100
  • SOMEBODY KILLED SOMEBODY,
  • 00:13:00.100 --> 00:13:01.130
  • AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:13:01.130 --> 00:13:01.260
  • "GOD TOLD ME TO DO IT."
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:04.210
  • YOU KNOW, SO THE ENEMY'S
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:06.010
  • ALWAYS TRYING TO DISCREDIT
  • 00:13:06.010 --> 00:13:07.290
  • WHAT IS VERY, VERY BASIC
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:10.000
  • AND BIBLICAL, ALRIGHT.
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:11.250
  • SO I'M GOING TO GET TO THIS.
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:12.250
  • LOOK AT 1 CORINTHIANS 14:21,
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:17.050
  • FIRST PAUL SAYS
  • 00:13:17.050 --> 00:13:18.070
  • AT THE END OF CHAPTER 12,
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:20.020
  • TO PASSIONATELY,
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:20.290
  • ZEALOUSLY GO AFTER
  • 00:13:20.290 --> 00:13:23.190
  • WITH GREAT ENERGY AND PASSION,
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:26.030
  • I MEAN, IT'S A WORD
  • 00:13:26.030 --> 00:13:27.170
  • FOR JUST ROMANTIC PASSION.
  • 00:13:29.280 --> 00:13:32.280
  • I MEAN, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY IT
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:35.050
  • AS STRONGLY AS IT REALLY
  • 00:13:35.050 --> 00:13:36.070
  • COULD BE SAID.
  • 00:13:36.070 --> 00:13:36.280
  • BUT TO USE GREAT PASSION
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:39.080
  • IN GOING AFTER THE GIFTS
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:40.030
  • OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:13:40.030 --> 00:13:41.110
  • AND THEN HE SAYS IT AGAIN
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:42.070
  • IN CHAPTER 14,
  • 00:13:42.070 --> 00:13:43.130
  • HE SAYS IT TWICE IN CHAPTER 14.
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:45.130
  • BUT SO, AS WE GO AFTER THAT,
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:48.250
  • BUT THIS IS WHAT I WANT YOU
  • 00:13:48.250 --> 00:13:49.240
  • TO SEE, VERSE 31, IT SAYS,
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:51.080
  • "FOR YOU CAN ALL PROPHESY
  • 00:13:51.080 --> 00:13:53.050
  • ONE BY ONE,
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:54.090
  • SO THAT ALL MAY LEARN
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:55.090
  • AND BE EXHORTED,"
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:58.060
  • SO JUST LOOK AT SOMEBODY
  • 00:13:58.060 --> 00:13:59.000
  • AND SAY, YOU CAN PROPHESY.
  • 00:13:59.160 --> 00:14:02.180
  • NOW I KNOW NOT EVERYBODY
  • 00:14:02.180 --> 00:14:03.220
  • SAID IT, BUT TRY IT AGAIN.
  • 00:14:03.220 --> 00:14:04.290
  • TELL SOMEBODY ELSE,
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:06.100
  • "YOU CAN PROPHESY."
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:09.200
  • NOW LET'S MAKE IT
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:10.050
  • EVEN MORE PERSONAL.
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:11.170
  • SAY OUT LOUD, JUST TO GOD,
  • 00:14:11.170 --> 00:14:13.110
  • "I CAN PROPHESY."
  • 00:14:13.110 --> 00:14:16.090
  • THAT SOUNDED REALLY GOOD.
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:18.190
  • BECAUSE YOU NEED TO PROPHESY.
  • 00:14:18.190 --> 00:14:21.040
  • THE EZEKIEL 37 PASSAGE
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:22.260
  • MAKES VERY CLEAR THAT GOD
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:24.100
  • IS RAISING UP
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:24.290
  • AN INCREDIBLE ARMY.
  • 00:14:24.290 --> 00:14:27.110
  • AND YOU MAY BE WILLING TO GRANT,
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:29.040
  • "OKAY, WAY OVER THERE
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:30.110
  • ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:31.140
  • OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:33.100
  • WHERE NONE OF US WERE THERE,
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:34.110
  • PASTOR, YOU MAKE ALL
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:35.140
  • THESE CLAIMS ABOUT HEALING.
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:37.080
  • ALL RIGHT, WELL,
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:38.210
  • JUST DOWN THE STREET
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:39.130
  • OVER HERE AT 18TH STREET,
  • 00:14:39.130 --> 00:14:40.180
  • I WAS PREACHING
  • 00:14:40.180 --> 00:14:41.030
  • AT NEW JERUSALEM WORSHIP CENTER,
  • 00:14:41.030 --> 00:14:43.010
  • AN AFRICAN AMERICAN CHURCH,
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:44.150
  • ON A WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:46.190
  • AND THERE WERE ABOUT
  • 00:14:46.190 --> 00:14:47.040
  • 25 HEALINGS THERE.
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:49.090
  • PEOPLE WEEPING,
  • 00:14:49.090 --> 00:14:51.000
  • SUFFERING FROM YEARS OF PAIN
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:52.090
  • IN THEIR BODIES.
  • 00:14:52.090 --> 00:14:53.120
  • AND I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:54.040
  • PAIN IN JUST A MINUTE.
  • 00:14:54.040 --> 00:14:55.170
  • AND ONE PASTOR'S WIFE
  • 00:14:55.170 --> 00:14:57.240
  • HAD GREAT BULGES IN HER SHOULDER
  • 00:14:57.290 --> 00:15:01.010
  • AND BACK OF HER NECK,
  • 00:15:01.010 --> 00:15:02.100
  • AND THEY COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED,
  • 00:15:02.100 --> 00:15:03.220
  • AND ALL THE PAIN DISAPPEARED.
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:05.050
  • AND SHE'S WEEPING,
  • 00:15:05.050 --> 00:15:06.140
  • COMPLETELY UNDONE
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:07.190
  • AND CAN'T TALK.
  • 00:15:07.190 --> 00:15:10.050
  • BECAUSE THE PAIN.
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.130
  • ANOTHER PASTOR WALKED IN LIMPING
  • 00:15:11.130 --> 00:15:13.200
  • BECAUSE OF THE PAIN IN HIS KNEE
  • 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:14.230
  • HE'D HAD A LONG TIME.
  • 00:15:14.230 --> 00:15:15.250
  • IT WAS COMPLETELY GONE
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:17.050
  • WHEN WE FINISHED PRAYING.
  • 00:15:17.050 --> 00:15:18.260
  • AND ALL I DID WAS ASK
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:19.200
  • EVERYBODY TO PRAY FOR THOSE
  • 00:15:19.200 --> 00:15:20.250
  • WHO HAD PAIN IN THEIR BODIES.
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:23.160
  • OKAY, JUST, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:24.180
  • TO DO THAT.
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:25.030
  • AND I DID NOT PERSONALLY
  • 00:15:25.030 --> 00:15:26.060
  • PRAY FOR ANYBODY,
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:28.000
  • BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT THEM
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:28.240
  • TO PUT ATTENTION ON ME.
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:32.050
  • THEY NEEDED TO PUT
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:32.280
  • ALL THE ATTENTION ON JESUS.
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:36.040
  • JESUS IS THE ONE
  • 00:15:36.040 --> 00:15:36.250
  • THAT SHED HIS BLOOD
  • 00:15:36.250 --> 00:15:38.060
  • THAT WE JUST CELEBRATED
  • 00:15:38.060 --> 00:15:39.070
  • IN TAKING HOLY
  • 00:15:39.070 --> 00:15:40.120
  • COMMUNION TOGETHER.
  • 00:15:40.120 --> 00:15:42.120
  • OKAY, IT WAS JESUS
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:43.120
  • THAT DID THAT.
  • 00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:44.120
  • IT WAS JESUS THAT HEALED
  • 00:15:44.120 --> 00:15:45.090
  • ALL THE SICK.
  • 00:15:45.090 --> 00:15:46.090
  • AND IT'S JESUS STILL HEALING
  • 00:15:46.090 --> 00:15:47.290
  • THE SICK TODAY, OKAY.
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:50.050
  • SO I PRAYED WITH A WOMAN
  • 00:15:50.050 --> 00:15:52.040
  • WHO HAS A TUMOR
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:54.190
  • THE SIZE OF A LEMON,
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:55.210
  • IN HER THORAX AREA
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:57.060
  • RIGHT HERE IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.040
  • OF HER CHEST.
  • 00:15:58.040 --> 00:15:59.000
  • ON FRIDAY, I SPENT SIX HOURS
  • 00:15:59.000 --> 00:16:00.180
  • WITH HER, TAKING HER
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:01.240
  • TO HELP MAKE ARRANGEMENTS.
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:03.220
  • AND SHE'S ALREADY ORDERED
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:06.030
  • HOSPICE CARE TO COME.
  • 00:16:06.030 --> 00:16:07.190
  • AND I SAID, "LOOK, I KNOW
  • 00:16:07.190 --> 00:16:09.060
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE ONE DAY,
  • 00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:11.240
  • WE'LL BE DONE.
  • 00:16:11.240 --> 00:16:13.040
  • I UNDERSTAND THAT.
  • 00:16:13.040 --> 00:16:14.100
  • I'M NOT GOOFY, OKAY?
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:16.030
  • OKAY, I KNOW
  • 00:16:16.030 --> 00:16:18.010
  • THERE'S GOOFY PEOPLE
  • 00:16:18.010 --> 00:16:19.000
  • THAT TALK ABOUT HEALING
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:20.050
  • AND THEY'RE JUST IRRATIONAL.
  • 00:16:20.050 --> 00:16:21.230
  • I KNOW THAT.
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.090
  • BUT JUST BECAUSE SOMEBODY
  • 00:16:23.090 --> 00:16:24.070
  • TALKS ABOUT THIS STUFF
  • 00:16:24.070 --> 00:16:26.070
  • IN A KIND OF A GOOFY WAY
  • 00:16:26.070 --> 00:16:28.280
  • DOESN'T MEAN THERE'S
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:29.140
  • NOT AN ACCURATE WAY
  • 00:16:29.140 --> 00:16:30.210
  • TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ALMIGHTY GOD
  • 00:16:30.210 --> 00:16:32.150
  • STILL WANTS TO DO TODAY
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.030
  • TO BRING REVIVAL
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:35.130
  • AND TO BRING PEOPLE
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:36.060
  • INTO HIS KINGDOM, AMEN?
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:38.180
  • ALRIGHT, SO IF YOU DON'T MIND,
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:40.110
  • I'M GOING TO PRAY
  • 00:16:40.110 --> 00:16:41.010
  • FOR YOUR HEALING ANYWAY.
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:43.290
  • OKAY, I KNOW YOU'VE INVITED
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:45.040
  • HOSPICE CARE.
  • 00:16:45.040 --> 00:16:46.030
  • BUT, I'M GOING TO PRAY.
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:47.050
  • I SAID, "SOMETIMES GOD BRINGS
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:48.210
  • HEALING THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:16:48.210 --> 00:16:50.170
  • AND SOMETIMES GOD BRINGS
  • 00:16:50.170 --> 00:16:51.240
  • THE ULTIMATE HEALING
  • 00:16:51.240 --> 00:16:53.040
  • AND WE STEP ON INTO ETERNITY.
  • 00:16:53.040 --> 00:16:54.220
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:55.050
  • I'M PRETTY MUCH READY
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:55.270
  • FOR THAT ANYTIME, OKAY.
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:59.000
  • BUT IT'S BETTER FOR MY WIFE
  • 00:16:59.000 --> 00:17:00.270
  • AND KIDS AND GRANDKIDS
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:02.020
  • THAT I HANG AROUND
  • 00:17:02.020 --> 00:17:03.070
  • A LITTLE LONGER.
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:03.290
  • SO, I'LL JUST HANG AROUND
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:04.270
  • A LITTLE LONGER.
  • 00:17:04.270 --> 00:17:05.220
  • BUT IF THE LORD SAID TODAY,
  • 00:17:05.220 --> 00:17:06.280
  • I'D SAY, "LET'S GO."
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:08.070
  • I MEAN, "LET'S GO."
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:09.180
  • I'LL PRAY FROM HEAVEN, OKAY.
  • 00:17:09.180 --> 00:17:11.120
  • WE'LL KEEP GOING.
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:12.050
  • SO I SAID TO THIS DEAR,
  • 00:17:12.050 --> 00:17:15.020
  • SWEET ONE, I SAID, "YOUR TUMOR'S
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:17.030
  • NOT GOING TO GET WORSE
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:18.090
  • IF I PRAY FOR YOU, RIGHT?"
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:20.160
  • WELL SHE WAS IN GREAT PAIN
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:21.190
  • AND COULDN'T HARDLY
  • 00:17:21.190 --> 00:17:22.050
  • GET IN THE CAR.
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:23.020
  • AND I SAID, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:25.000
  • "LET'S JUST PRAY
  • 00:17:25.000 --> 00:17:25.170
  • SO YOU CAN MAKE THIS TRIP."
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:26.290
  • WE'RE DRIVING TO FORT WORTH.
  • 00:17:26.290 --> 00:17:28.010
  • AND SHE SAID, "OKAY."
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:31.100
  • SO I PRAYED FOR HER,
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:32.170
  • AND I ASKED GOD
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:33.040
  • TO REDUCE THE PAIN.
  • 00:17:33.040 --> 00:17:34.100
  • AND SHE WAS SHOCKED
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:35.060
  • THAT INSTANTLY THE PAIN
  • 00:17:35.060 --> 00:17:36.120
  • REDUCED IN HALF.
  • 00:17:36.120 --> 00:17:38.250
  • ON THE SPOT.
  • 00:17:38.250 --> 00:17:41.000
  • SHE SAID, "I THINK
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:41.160
  • WE CAN GO NOW."
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:43.000
  • ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO.
  • 00:17:43.130 --> 00:17:46.130
  • SO I DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:17:46.130 --> 00:17:47.100
  • HOW GOD MOVES,
  • 00:17:47.100 --> 00:17:48.090
  • AND HOW HE DOESN'T MOVE.
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:50.150
  • I LIKE WHAT JACK DEER SAID.
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:51.200
  • HE SAID, IF THE LORD TOLD HIM
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:53.130
  • THAT IF YOU NEVER TRIED
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:54.160
  • TO TAKE THE CREDIT WHEN I HEAL,
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:57.020
  • YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO TAKE
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:57.290
  • THE BLAME, WHEN I DON'T.
  • 00:17:58.030 --> 00:18:01.050
  • I'LL TAKE THAT DEAL.
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.220
  • YEAH, GO AHEAD LORD.
  • 00:18:02.220 --> 00:18:04.000
  • YEAH, JUST, I'M GOING TO ASK
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.000
  • YOU TO HEAL,
  • 00:18:05.000 --> 00:18:05.280
  • AND YOU'RE THE HEALER, I'M NOT.
  • 00:18:05.280 --> 00:18:07.130
  • I'M THE ASKER.
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:08.280
  • I'M THE ONE THAT DECLARES IT.
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:10.120
  • I'M THE ONE THAT RELEASES IT,
  • 00:18:10.160 --> 00:18:13.160
  • AND BELIEVES FOR IT.
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:15.090
  • OKAY.
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:16.220
  • AND I EVEN THINK
  • 00:18:16.220 --> 00:18:17.240
  • WHEN THERE'S HARDLY ANY FAITH,
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:19.160
  • GOD CAN HEAL.
  • 00:18:19.160 --> 00:18:21.200
  • I MEAN, I REMEMBER RANDY CLARK
  • 00:18:21.200 --> 00:18:22.170
  • SAID ONE TIME ON THE FIRST TIMES
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:23.290
  • HE PRAYED FOR SOMEBODY
  • 00:18:23.290 --> 00:18:24.270
  • TO BE HEALED, HE PRAYED
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:27.210
  • AND HE REALLY DIDN'T THINK
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:28.120
  • IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:18:28.120 --> 00:18:29.250
  • AND THE LADY DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:18:29.250 --> 00:18:30.150
  • WANT HIM TO PRAY.
  • 00:18:30.150 --> 00:18:31.040
  • SAID, "GO AHEAD.
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:31.210
  • I DON'T BELIEVE
  • 00:18:31.210 --> 00:18:32.070
  • IN ALL THAT STUFF,
  • 00:18:32.070 --> 00:18:32.230
  • BUT GO AHEAD."
  • 00:18:32.230 --> 00:18:33.130
  • HE SAID, "WELL, I'M KIND
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:34.010
  • OF STUDYING IT, AND I'D KIND OF,
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:35.130
  • I'D LIKE TO DO IT
  • 00:18:35.130 --> 00:18:36.060
  • IF IT'S OKAY."
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:37.050
  • AND SHE, I FORGET WHAT IT WAS,
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:38.200
  • BUT HE PRAYED FOR HER,
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:40.110
  • AND SUPERNATURALLY,
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.210
  • INSTANTLY, SHE WAS HEALED.
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:43.080
  • AND SHE GOES, "I'M HEALED!"
  • 00:18:43.080 --> 00:18:45.060
  • HE GOES, "YOU ARE?"
  • 00:18:45.060 --> 00:18:46.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:46.280 --> 00:18:49.280
  • SO GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:50.290
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT
  • 00:18:50.290 --> 00:18:52.050
  • OF FAITH IN IT EITHER.
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:53.120
  • BUT GOD WAS TRYING
  • 00:18:53.120 --> 00:18:54.040
  • TO TELL HIM SOMETHING.
  • 00:18:54.040 --> 00:18:56.130
  • IT AIN'T YOU.
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:59.210
  • JESUS PUT IT THIS WAY,
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:01.010
  • "APART FROM ME,
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:01.220
  • YOU CAN DO NOTHING."
  • 00:19:03.050 --> 00:19:06.050
  • BUT THEN HE REMINDS US
  • 00:19:06.050 --> 00:19:07.020
  • IN PHILIPPIANS 4:13
  • 00:19:07.020 --> 00:19:08.180
  • THAT'S IN JOHN 15
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:09.150
  • WHERE HE SAID THAT,
  • 00:19:09.150 --> 00:19:10.100
  • BUT HE REMINDS US
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:11.040
  • IN PHILIPPIANS 4:13, "I CAN,"
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:13.210
  • PAUL SAYS, "I CAN DO ALL THINGS
  • 00:19:13.210 --> 00:19:14.270
  • THROUGH CHRIST
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:16.110
  • WHO STRENGTHENS ME."
  • 00:19:16.110 --> 00:19:18.280
  • ALRIGHT, SO STOP DOUBTING
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:20.080
  • YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:19:20.080 --> 00:19:21.240
  • AND START DOUBTING
  • 00:19:21.240 --> 00:19:22.110
  • YOUR DOUBTS, ALRIGHT.
  • 00:19:22.110 --> 00:19:24.210
  • AND LET'S BELIEVE
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:25.200
  • AND START SPEAKING
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:27.060
  • WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS,
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:29.020
  • RATHER, WHAT THE CHURCH NEEDS
  • 00:19:29.020 --> 00:19:30.280
  • AND THE WORLD NEEDS.
  • 00:19:30.280 --> 00:19:32.080
  • BUT ESPECIALLY THE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:32.080 --> 00:19:34.250
  • PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 00:19:34.250 --> 00:19:36.010
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS?
  • 00:19:36.010 --> 00:19:37.070
  • A HUNGER AND A THIRST
  • 00:19:37.070 --> 00:19:39.050
  • FOR GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 00:19:39.180 --> 00:19:42.180
  • SO ON A WEDNESDAY WHEN
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:43.220
  • I WAS SHARING IN THIS CHURCH,
  • 00:19:43.220 --> 00:19:45.130
  • I SAID, "EVERYONE OF YOU NOW
  • 00:19:45.130 --> 00:19:48.090
  • NEEDS TO BEGIN TO PROPHESY
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:50.140
  • AND DECLARE OVER THE CITY
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:52.150
  • AND OVER EVERYONE YOU LOVE,
  • 00:19:52.150 --> 00:19:53.210
  • HUNGER AND THIRST FOR GOD.
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:19:56.240
  • HUNGER AND THIRST FOR GOD.
  • 00:19:56.240 --> 00:19:59.200
  • BECAUSE APART FROM BEING HUNGRY
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:01.080
  • AND THIRSTY FOR GOD,
  • 00:20:01.080 --> 00:20:02.180
  • CREATING WHAT I'M CALLING
  • 00:20:02.180 --> 00:20:04.010
  • A HOLY DESPERATION
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:06.060
  • FOR HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:20:06.060 --> 00:20:07.250
  • THAT WE WON'T HAVE THE REVIVAL
  • 00:20:07.250 --> 00:20:09.180
  • WE NEED DESPERATELY
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:10.290
  • IN THIS NATION.
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:12.190
  • I MEAN, SOMEBODY SAYS
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:13.200
  • THERE'S NO HOPE
  • 00:20:14.170 --> 00:20:17.170
  • FOR CERTAIN CITIES
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:18.100
  • IN OUR NATION.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:19.140
  • AND I WON'T START CALLING
  • 00:20:19.140 --> 00:20:20.140
  • THEM OUT, BECAUSE I'LL GET
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:21.080
  • LETTERS FROM THEM.
  • 00:20:21.080 --> 00:20:21.290
  • SO, I, YOU KNOW, I WANT,
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:24.200
  • BUT I WANT TO BLESS,
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:26.040
  • LET ME JUST SAY,
  • 00:20:26.040 --> 00:20:26.190
  • I WANT TO BLESS CHICAGO.
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:28.190
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:29.090
  • ARE CRITICIZING CHICAGO
  • 00:20:29.090 --> 00:20:30.090
  • FOR ALL THE SHOOTINGS
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:30.250
  • AND THE CRIME.
  • 00:20:30.250 --> 00:20:31.290
  • AND I'M GOING TO SAY,
  • 00:20:31.290 --> 00:20:32.170
  • "WELL I DECLARE CRIME STOPPED
  • 00:20:32.170 --> 00:20:34.000
  • IN CHICAGO."
  • 00:20:34.000 --> 00:20:35.210
  • OKAY, HEALING COME.
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:37.120
  • CHURCHES WAKE UP.
  • 00:20:37.120 --> 00:20:39.060
  • YOU KNOW, PRESENCE OF GOD,
  • 00:20:39.060 --> 00:20:40.140
  • AND START DECLARING A HUNGER
  • 00:20:40.140 --> 00:20:41.290
  • AND A DESPERATION FOR GOD.
  • 00:20:41.290 --> 00:20:44.030
  • NOW, THAT'S THE ONLY THING
  • 00:20:44.030 --> 00:20:46.250
  • THAT WILL BRING
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:47.220
  • THE KIND OF REVIVAL
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:48.150
  • AND TRANSFORMATION OF CULTURE
  • 00:20:48.150 --> 00:20:51.050
  • THAT WE DEFINITELY NEED.
  • 00:20:51.050 --> 00:20:53.160
  • NOW RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:54.070
  • THE LORD'S OPENING UP MORE
  • 00:20:54.070 --> 00:20:55.130
  • AND MORE DOORS FOR ME.
  • 00:20:55.130 --> 00:20:56.130
  • AND WHAT WE CALL THE,
  • 00:20:56.130 --> 00:20:58.100
  • OF THE SEVEN MOUNTAINS
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:20:59.280
  • OF INFLUENCE AND CULTURE.
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:02.030
  • MAJOR CULTURAL INFLUENCERS
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:04.000
  • IN OUR SOCIETY,
  • 00:21:04.000 --> 00:21:06.230
  • THINGS LIKE THE,
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:07.120
  • LIKE GOVERNMENT,
  • 00:21:07.120 --> 00:21:08.220
  • OR EDUCATION, OR RELIGION,
  • 00:21:08.220 --> 00:21:11.010
  • OR BUSINESS, OR ENTERTAINMENT.
  • 00:21:11.010 --> 00:21:13.260
  • THE ARTS, MEDIA,
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:16.220
  • I THINK THAT GETS THEM.
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:18.050
  • BUT IN GOVERNMENT, AND,
  • 00:21:19.100 --> 00:21:22.100
  • IT'S JUST KIND OF
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:23.070
  • BLOWING MY MIND,
  • 00:21:23.070 --> 00:21:24.100
  • THE DOORS THAT ARE OPENING
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:25.100
  • FOR ME TO MINISTER
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:26.150
  • TO LEADERS IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:21:27.280 --> 00:21:30.280
  • AND THERE ARE NOT THINGS
  • 00:21:30.280 --> 00:21:31.230
  • THAT I CAN PARTICULARLY TALK
  • 00:21:31.230 --> 00:21:32.190
  • ABOUT BECAUSE THEN IT KIND OF
  • 00:21:32.190 --> 00:21:34.100
  • JUST RUINS THE CONFIDENTIALITY
  • 00:21:34.100 --> 00:21:37.000
  • AND THE TRUST.
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:38.050
  • SO, UNDERSTAND THIS.
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:40.260
  • THE MORE WE PROPHESY
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:42.050
  • HUNGER AND THIRST,
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:43.240
  • THE MORE THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:21:43.240 --> 00:21:46.030
  • IS DRAWN.
  • 00:21:46.030 --> 00:21:47.200
  • OKAY?
  • 00:21:47.200 --> 00:21:48.110
  • THE MORE WE PROPHESY
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:49.290
  • HUNGER AND THIRST,
  • 00:21:49.290 --> 00:21:52.030
  • THE MORE THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:54.080
  • IS DRAWN TO A PLACE.
  • 00:21:54.080 --> 00:21:56.080
  • WHEN I WAS IN MALAYSIA,
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:57.280
  • THE PEOPLE WERE SO PASSIONATELY
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:21:59.160
  • HUNGRY FOR GOD'S SPIRIT,
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:02.120
  • GOD COULDN'T HELP BUT SHOW UP,
  • 00:22:02.120 --> 00:22:04.020
  • I THINK.
  • 00:22:04.020 --> 00:22:06.080
  • HE WAS JUST DRAWN TO THAT.
  • 00:22:06.080 --> 00:22:08.270
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE SO PASSIONATE
  • 00:22:08.270 --> 00:22:10.110
  • AND DESPERATE FOR HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:13.040
  • SO BECAUSE OF THAT
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:13.210
  • PROPHETIC MINISTRY,
  • 00:22:13.210 --> 00:22:14.250
  • JUST FLOWED LIKE YOU KNOW,
  • 00:22:14.250 --> 00:22:16.170
  • LIKE NOTHING.
  • 00:22:16.170 --> 00:22:17.150
  • IT WAS JUST SO EASY.
  • 00:22:17.150 --> 00:22:18.190
  • PREACHING JUST FLOWED.
  • 00:22:18.190 --> 00:22:21.040
  • ALTHOUGH I WAS EXHAUSTED
  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:22.140
  • AND MY BODY CLOCK
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:23.100
  • WAS UPSIDE DOWN.
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:24.070
  • THEY'RE 13 HOURS AHEAD OF US.
  • 00:22:24.090 --> 00:22:27.090
  • AND BY THE TIME I BEGAN
  • 00:22:27.090 --> 00:22:28.230
  • TO GET ADJUSTED,
  • 00:22:28.230 --> 00:22:29.210
  • IT WAS TIME TO COME BACK.
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:31.260
  • AND SO, YOU KNOW, SO THEY SAID,
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:33.220
  • "WELL WE'LL FIX THAT.
  • 00:22:33.220 --> 00:22:34.210
  • NEXT TIME COME FOR TWO WEEKS."
  • 00:22:34.210 --> 00:22:36.070
  • ALRIGHT.
  • 00:22:36.070 --> 00:22:38.060
  • AND I'M GRATEFUL TO SAY
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:41.150
  • I STEPPED OUT THERE
  • 00:22:41.150 --> 00:22:43.020
  • AND ATE TURTLE
  • 00:22:43.020 --> 00:22:45.080
  • WHILE I WAS THERE.
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:46.280
  • ANY OF YOU HAD TURTLE?
  • 00:22:46.280 --> 00:22:48.210
  • YOU'VE HAD TURTLE?
  • 00:22:48.210 --> 00:22:49.220
  • SOMEBODY SAID, ASKED ME
  • 00:22:49.220 --> 00:22:50.260
  • IF IT TASTE LIKE CHICKEN.
  • 00:22:50.260 --> 00:22:51.260
  • I SAID, "NO, IT TASTES
  • 00:22:51.260 --> 00:22:52.170
  • LIKE TURTLE."
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:56.170
  • SO, LISTEN.
  • 00:22:56.170 --> 00:22:58.010
  • WE HAD A GREAT TIME.
  • 00:22:58.010 --> 00:22:59.030
  • BUT THE HUNGER AND THIRST
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:00.110
  • FOR GOD'S PRESENCE
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:01.080
  • IS ALL THAT'S MISSING.
  • 00:23:01.220 --> 00:23:04.220
  • THAT HOLY DESPERATION.
  • 00:23:04.220 --> 00:23:06.010
  • AND THEN GETTING AROUND
  • 00:23:06.010 --> 00:23:06.250
  • OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:23:06.250 --> 00:23:07.250
  • THAT ARE HUNGRY AND THIRSTY
  • 00:23:07.250 --> 00:23:08.210
  • FOR GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 00:23:08.210 --> 00:23:10.040
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP GOING,
  • 00:23:10.040 --> 00:23:11.130
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE WORD
  • 00:23:11.130 --> 00:23:12.220
  • OF THE LORD HE GAVE FOR US.
  • 00:23:12.220 --> 00:23:14.020
  • I WANT YOU TO TURN
  • 00:23:14.020 --> 00:23:14.220
  • TO PROVERBS 4.
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:18.240
  • AND I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:23:18.240 --> 00:23:20.220
  • WHAT I THINK
  • 00:23:20.220 --> 00:23:21.060
  • IS A PHENOMENAL DESCRIPTION
  • 00:23:21.140 --> 00:23:24.140
  • OF WHAT WE NEED
  • 00:23:24.140 --> 00:23:26.230
  • FOR THE POWER OF GOD
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:28.160
  • TO FLOW CONSISTENTLY
  • 00:23:28.160 --> 00:23:30.030
  • AND REGULARLY IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:23:30.120 --> 00:23:33.120
  • THE BOOK OF PROVERBS GIVES,
  • 00:23:33.120 --> 00:23:35.050
  • I'M NOT SAYING IT'S A FORMULA,
  • 00:23:35.050 --> 00:23:36.210
  • BUT IT REALLY HELPS US
  • 00:23:36.210 --> 00:23:38.040
  • WITH A CONDITION
  • 00:23:39.090 --> 00:23:42.090
  • AND POSITION TO BE IN.
  • 00:23:42.090 --> 00:23:44.260
  • PROVERBS 4, LET'S START
  • 00:23:46.000 --> 00:23:49.000
  • WITH VERSE 20, 21, AND 22.
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:51.240
  • PROVERBS 4:20-22.
  • 00:23:51.240 --> 00:23:54.160
  • "MY SON, GIVE ATTENTION
  • 00:23:54.160 --> 00:23:55.240
  • TO MY WORDS;"
  • 00:23:56.030 --> 00:23:59.030
  • SO IT MEANS BASICALLY
  • 00:23:59.030 --> 00:24:00.240
  • BE ATTENTIVE,
  • 00:24:00.240 --> 00:24:02.280
  • ATTEND TO MY WORDS.
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:05.100
  • NOW, IF WE'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:24:05.100 --> 00:24:06.120
  • TO ATTEND TO THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:24:06.120 --> 00:24:07.250
  • AND GIVE THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:24:07.250 --> 00:24:09.210
  • A VERY SPECIAL PLACE
  • 00:24:09.210 --> 00:24:10.170
  • IN OUR LIVES,
  • 00:24:10.170 --> 00:24:11.270
  • THEN WE'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:24:12.060 --> 00:24:15.060
  • TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:24:15.060 --> 00:24:15.270
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:16.290
  • LIKE WE COULD.
  • 00:24:16.290 --> 00:24:18.030
  • OKAY.
  • 00:24:18.030 --> 00:24:18.250
  • SO I KNOW A LOT OF US
  • 00:24:18.250 --> 00:24:20.080
  • KNOW THE SCRIPTURE VERY WELL.
  • 00:24:20.080 --> 00:24:21.240
  • I PRAYED FOR A MAN THAT KNOWS
  • 00:24:21.240 --> 00:24:23.050
  • THE BIBLE VERY WELL,
  • 00:24:23.050 --> 00:24:24.070
  • BUT IS AN ATHEIST.
  • 00:24:24.070 --> 00:24:26.240
  • AND AT LEAST
  • 00:24:26.240 --> 00:24:28.070
  • THAT'S WHAT I WAS TOLD.
  • 00:24:28.070 --> 00:24:29.050
  • AND DIDN'T WANT PRAYER.
  • 00:24:29.180 --> 00:24:32.180
  • DIDN'T WANT PRAYER.
  • 00:24:32.180 --> 00:24:33.230
  • AND THEY CONVINCED HIM,
  • 00:24:33.230 --> 00:24:34.280
  • "WELL JUST COME TO THE ROOM,
  • 00:24:34.280 --> 00:24:36.180
  • AND LET'S JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:24:36.180 --> 00:24:37.230
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET PASTOR PENA
  • 00:24:37.230 --> 00:24:39.160
  • TO COME AND JUST BE THERE
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:40.230
  • WITH YOUR WIFE AND YOUR SON."
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:42.180
  • "WELL, I DON'T WANT
  • 00:24:42.180 --> 00:24:43.050
  • ANYTHING RELIGIOUS."
  • 00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:46.250
  • "OKAY.
  • 00:24:46.250 --> 00:24:48.020
  • SO, I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:24:48.020 --> 00:24:48.180
  • TO BE RELIGIOUS.
  • 00:24:48.180 --> 00:24:49.250
  • LET'S JUST ASK GOD,
  • 00:24:49.250 --> 00:24:51.130
  • YOU KNOW, WHAT'S GOING ON."
  • 00:24:51.130 --> 00:24:53.110
  • SO WE WENT IN THE NEXT ROOM.
  • 00:24:53.110 --> 00:24:54.130
  • I WAS AT A FORMAL FAMILY,
  • 00:24:54.130 --> 00:24:55.290
  • A DINNER THAT I WAS AN HONORED
  • 00:24:55.290 --> 00:24:57.070
  • GUEST AT, TO BE ABLE TO ATTEND.
  • 00:24:57.070 --> 00:24:58.210
  • IT WAS VERY NICE SETTING.
  • 00:24:58.210 --> 00:25:00.130
  • AND I MEANT TO SEND PICTURES.
  • 00:25:00.130 --> 00:25:02.200
  • AND, OH THERE'S THIS
  • 00:25:02.200 --> 00:25:03.120
  • BEAUTIFUL FISH
  • 00:25:03.120 --> 00:25:03.260
  • THAT HAD LIKE SHARK TEETH
  • 00:25:03.260 --> 00:25:05.200
  • STICKING OUT, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:25:05.200 --> 00:25:06.150
  • JUST THE WHOLE HEAD
  • 00:25:06.150 --> 00:25:07.060
  • ON THE TABLE.
  • 00:25:07.060 --> 00:25:07.210
  • IT WAS JUST GORGEOUS LOOKING.
  • 00:25:07.210 --> 00:25:10.040
  • I'LL SHOW IT TO YOU NEXT TIME.
  • 00:25:10.040 --> 00:25:11.110
  • SO ANYWAY, MY WIFE'S SAYING,
  • 00:25:11.110 --> 00:25:13.060
  • "NO, DON'T SHOW IT TO US."
  • 00:25:13.060 --> 00:25:15.170
  • SHE'S SEEN IT ALREADY.
  • 00:25:15.170 --> 00:25:17.070
  • SO I SAID, SO WE WALKED IN,
  • 00:25:17.070 --> 00:25:18.260
  • AND I SAID, "WELL, PRAISE GOD.
  • 00:25:18.260 --> 00:25:20.210
  • THE LORD LOVED YOU SO MUCH,
  • 00:25:20.210 --> 00:25:22.110
  • YOUR BUSINESS
  • 00:25:22.110 --> 00:25:22.260
  • IS GOING TO EXPAND."
  • 00:25:22.260 --> 00:25:23.250
  • AND I BEGAN TO PROPHECY
  • 00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:25.020
  • OVER HIS BUSINESS,
  • 00:25:25.020 --> 00:25:25.290
  • AND THIS, AND OVER HIS SON,
  • 00:25:25.290 --> 00:25:27.020
  • SEVERAL THINGS OVER HIS SON.
  • 00:25:27.020 --> 00:25:28.090
  • AND THE BUSINESS AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:25:28.090 --> 00:25:30.200
  • I KNEW VERY LITTLE ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:25:30.200 --> 00:25:32.170
  • AND I SAID, "AND SO,
  • 00:25:32.170 --> 00:25:34.180
  • GOD BLESS YOU."
  • 00:25:34.230 --> 00:25:37.230
  • IT WASN'T RELIGIOUS.
  • 00:25:37.230 --> 00:25:40.090
  • IT WAS DECLARATIVE, OKAY.
  • 00:25:40.110 --> 00:25:43.110
  • I JUST DECLARED WHAT I HEARD
  • 00:25:43.110 --> 00:25:44.210
  • THE LORD SAY OVER THEM,
  • 00:25:44.210 --> 00:25:46.240
  • AND I WALKED OUT.
  • 00:25:46.240 --> 00:25:48.130
  • HE CAME BACK
  • 00:25:48.130 --> 00:25:49.000
  • INTO THE OTHER ROOM,
  • 00:25:49.000 --> 00:25:50.030
  • AND HE SAID, "PASTOR,
  • 00:25:50.030 --> 00:25:52.260
  • HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING
  • 00:25:52.260 --> 00:25:53.160
  • TO BE HERE?"
  • 00:25:53.160 --> 00:25:55.260
  • THAT'S A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:25:55.260 --> 00:25:56.170
  • DIFFERENT ATTITUDE.
  • 00:25:56.170 --> 00:25:57.200
  • BECAUSE WHEN HE FIRST
  • 00:25:57.200 --> 00:25:58.150
  • APPROACHED ME,
  • 00:25:58.150 --> 00:25:59.040
  • HE STARTED SAYING
  • 00:25:59.040 --> 00:25:59.230
  • ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:25:59.230 --> 00:26:00.120
  • ABOUT DONALD TRUMP.
  • 00:26:00.120 --> 00:26:01.210
  • YOU KNOW, AND I JUST SMILED
  • 00:26:01.210 --> 00:26:02.150
  • AND SAID, "WHO KNOWS?"
  • 00:26:03.000 --> 00:26:06.000
  • HE'S TRYING TO ENGAGE ME,
  • 00:26:06.000 --> 00:26:06.230
  • YOU KNOW, AND I JUST,
  • 00:26:06.230 --> 00:26:09.190
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:26:09.190 --> 00:26:10.230
  • WE'LL SEE.
  • 00:26:10.230 --> 00:26:12.060
  • NOW HE CAME TO ME AND SAID,
  • 00:26:12.060 --> 00:26:13.070
  • "HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING
  • 00:26:13.070 --> 00:26:13.250
  • TO BE HERE?"
  • 00:26:13.250 --> 00:26:14.180
  • I SAID, "I'M LEAVING TOMORROW."
  • 00:26:14.180 --> 00:26:16.040
  • "OH.
  • 00:26:16.040 --> 00:26:17.140
  • WE NEED YOU HERE."
  • 00:26:18.070 --> 00:26:21.070
  • "WELL, MAYBE I'LL COME BACK.
  • 00:26:21.070 --> 00:26:23.200
  • NEVER KNOW."
  • 00:26:23.200 --> 00:26:25.050
  • BUT IT WAS AMAZING.
  • 00:26:25.050 --> 00:26:26.010
  • HERE'S THE POINT.
  • 00:26:26.010 --> 00:26:27.210
  • HOW THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:26:27.240 --> 00:26:30.240
  • CAME INTO THE ROOM,
  • 00:26:30.240 --> 00:26:32.080
  • SHIFTED THE ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:26:32.080 --> 00:26:34.010
  • AND A HEART SOFTENED.
  • 00:26:34.040 --> 00:26:37.040
  • NOW YOU KNOW PEOPLE
  • 00:26:37.040 --> 00:26:37.250
  • THAT HAVE HARD HEARTS.
  • 00:26:37.250 --> 00:26:39.170
  • AND WE CAN BEGIN TO DECLARE
  • 00:26:39.170 --> 00:26:41.020
  • AND PROPHECY OVER THEM,
  • 00:26:41.020 --> 00:26:42.140
  • THAT A HEART OF STONE IS REMOVED
  • 00:26:42.140 --> 00:26:44.010
  • AND A HEART OF FLESH COMES IN.
  • 00:26:44.010 --> 00:26:46.090
  • SOME OF US LISTENING RIGHT NOW
  • 00:26:46.090 --> 00:26:47.260
  • MAY NEED TO SAY
  • 00:26:47.260 --> 00:26:48.220
  • THAT OVER YOURSELF.
  • 00:26:48.220 --> 00:26:49.230
  • LORD, TAKE MY HEART OF STONE OUT
  • 00:26:49.230 --> 00:26:51.200
  • AND PUT A TENDER HEART THERE,
  • 00:26:51.200 --> 00:26:52.290
  • A HEART OF FLESH, INSTEAD.
  • 00:26:52.290 --> 00:26:55.120
  • YOU CAN PROPHESY OVER YOURSELF,
  • 00:26:55.120 --> 00:26:56.250
  • DID YOU KNOW?
  • 00:26:56.250 --> 00:26:59.060
  • DAVID SAID,
  • 00:26:59.060 --> 00:26:59.150
  • "BLESS THE LORD, ALL MY SOUL,
  • 00:26:59.150 --> 00:27:01.140
  • AND ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME,
  • 00:27:01.140 --> 00:27:02.210
  • BLESS HIS HOLY NAME."
  • 00:27:02.210 --> 00:27:04.210
  • HE COMMANDED HIMSELF
  • 00:27:04.210 --> 00:27:05.230
  • TO BLESS THE LORD,
  • 00:27:05.230 --> 00:27:07.230
  • - AND AFTER NIGHT
  • 00:27:23.170 --> 00:27:26.170
