  • - Brian Houston: Well, I love
  • 00:00:14.220 --> 00:00:15.100
  • the Hillsong Conference.
  • 00:00:15.100 --> 00:00:16.230
  • Now for 30 years starting
  • 00:00:16.230 --> 00:00:18.220
  • in Australia, this conference
  • 00:00:18.220 --> 00:00:20.050
  • has been all about blessing
  • 00:00:20.050 --> 00:00:21.190
  • people everywhere.
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:23.090
  • So I want you to come
  • 00:00:23.090 --> 00:00:24.060
  • on this journey and enjoy
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:25.160
  • the experience for yourself.
  • 00:00:25.160 --> 00:00:27.110
  • - Christine Caine: And the day
  • 00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:33.080
  • I discovered that God could use
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:34.200
  • somebody like me is when I made
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:36.070
  • a decision in an environment
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:38.010
  • like this, in a conference like
  • 00:00:38.010 --> 00:00:39.210
  • this that I was going to make
  • 00:00:39.210 --> 00:00:42.080
  • what Jesus did on the cross
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:44.150
  • for me bigger
  • 00:00:44.150 --> 00:00:46.080
  • than what anybody else had done
  • 00:00:46.080 --> 00:00:47.210
  • to me.
  • 00:00:47.210 --> 00:00:48.170
  • I was gonna make what Jesus did
  • 00:00:48.170 --> 00:00:50.170
  • for me bigger than what
  • 00:00:50.170 --> 00:00:52.110
  • anybody else said to me.
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:54.190
  • What is impossible with man
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:56.260
  • is possible with God.
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:00:58.070
  • With God, all things
  • 00:00:58.070 --> 00:00:59.150
  • are possible and nothing is
  • 00:00:59.150 --> 00:01:02.110
  • - Christine: You can be seated.
  • 00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:09.040
  • Let me turn to the Word.
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:10.030
  • I'm both Greek and a woman so I
  • 00:01:10.030 --> 00:01:11.070
  • only speak three ways, hard,
  • 00:01:11.070 --> 00:01:12.110
  • fast, and continuously so you
  • 00:01:12.110 --> 00:01:14.060
  • won't go to sleep.
  • 00:01:14.060 --> 00:01:16.160
  • And I thought, since there's
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:17.100
  • a chick up here I'm gonna use
  • 00:01:17.100 --> 00:01:18.160
  • a chick from the Bible.
  • 00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:19.250
  • And guys, don't think it's
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:21.070
  • a chick using a chick.
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:22.110
  • It is okay that men can learn
  • 00:01:22.110 --> 00:01:24.140
  • from women in the Bible
  • 00:01:24.140 --> 00:01:25.210
  • as much as women can learn
  • 00:01:25.210 --> 00:01:26.220
  • from men in the Bible.
  • 00:01:26.220 --> 00:01:27.220
  • How many think that might be
  • 00:01:27.220 --> 00:01:28.180
  • I love y'all.
  • 00:01:33.010 --> 00:01:34.060
  • Luke chapter 1, verse 26
  • 00:01:34.060 --> 00:01:36.090
  • the Bible says,
  • 00:01:36.090 --> 00:01:37.040
  • "In the sixth month
  • 00:01:37.040 --> 00:01:38.060
  • of Elizabeth's pregnancy--"
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:40.010
  • Oh, no, she's not only a chick.
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:40.290
  • She's starting with babies
  • 00:01:40.290 --> 00:01:41.240
  • and pregnancy.
  • 00:01:41.240 --> 00:01:42.110
  • This is getting nervous
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:43.190
  • right from the outset.
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:44.260
  • I'm going right there.
  • 00:01:44.260 --> 00:01:45.230
  • Let's just go all woman tonight.
  • 00:01:45.230 --> 00:01:47.100
  • So, "In the sixth month
  • 00:01:47.100 --> 00:01:48.190
  • of Elizabeth's pregnancy,
  • 00:01:48.190 --> 00:01:49.190
  • God sent the angel Gabriel
  • 00:01:49.190 --> 00:01:51.050
  • to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,
  • 00:01:51.180 --> 00:01:54.180
  • to a virgin pledged
  • 00:01:54.180 --> 00:01:56.170
  • to be married
  • 00:01:56.170 --> 00:01:57.030
  • to a man named Joseph,
  • 00:01:57.030 --> 00:01:58.090
  • a descendant of David.
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:01:59.100
  • The virgin's name--"
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:00.150
  • Bit of repetition here
  • 00:02:00.150 --> 00:02:01.120
  • 'cause they're trying to get
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:01.290
  • a point across.
  • 00:02:01.290 --> 00:02:02.200
  • "The virgin's name was Mary.
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:04.070
  • The angel went to her and said,
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:05.280
  • 'Greetings,
  • 00:02:05.280 --> 00:02:07.180
  • you who are highly favored!
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:10.020
  • The Lord is with you.'
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:11.260
  • Mary was greatly troubled
  • 00:02:11.260 --> 00:02:13.280
  • at his words and wondered
  • 00:02:13.280 --> 00:02:16.120
  • what kind of greeting
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:18.110
  • this might be."
  • 00:02:18.110 --> 00:02:19.210
  • I think that's hilarious
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:20.120
  • right there.
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:21.160
  • "Mary was greatly troubled
  • 00:02:21.160 --> 00:02:22.240
  • at his words and wondered
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:23.290
  • what kind of greeting might be."
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:25.090
  • This suggests to me
  • 00:02:25.090 --> 00:02:26.090
  • that just maybe this
  • 00:02:26.090 --> 00:02:27.190
  • wasn't highly unusual to Mary
  • 00:02:27.190 --> 00:02:29.220
  • 'cause the fact that she
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:30.150
  • didn't drop dead or have to go
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:31.170
  • change, you know, the skid marks
  • 00:02:31.170 --> 00:02:33.030
  • on her undies, I don't know
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:34.050
  • what would have happened.
  • 00:02:34.050 --> 00:02:35.020
  • Because if the angel of the Lord
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:37.250
  • came to you, I promise you
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:39.090
  • you'd be changing
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:39.240
  • your underwear.
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:40.200
  • You would not be going,
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:41.240
  • "I am slightly perturbed.
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:43.080
  • Woe, what manner of greeting
  • 00:02:43.080 --> 00:02:44.210
  • this might be."
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:46.020
  • She was not freaking out
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:48.050
  • that there was an angel there.
  • 00:02:48.050 --> 00:02:49.160
  • I wonder whether maybe,
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:50.210
  • just maybe, he
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:51.250
  • might have turned up before.
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:53.010
  • She was just freaking out
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:53.280
  • at the way that he greeted her.
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:56.130
  • So, it goes on and says
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:58.030
  • that, "She was greatly troubled
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:02:59.130
  • at his words and wondered
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:00.040
  • what kind of greeting
  • 00:03:00.040 --> 00:03:00.190
  • this might be.
  • 00:03:00.190 --> 00:03:01.070
  • But the angel said to her,
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:02.230
  • 'Do not be afraid, Mary--'"
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:07.070
  • I can laugh at a million levels.
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:08.040
  • "You have found favor with God.
  • 00:03:08.040 --> 00:03:10.290
  • You will conceive and give birth
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:12.020
  • to a son, and you are
  • 00:03:12.020 --> 00:03:12.290
  • to call him Jesus."
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:13.240
  • I just think you can tell
  • 00:03:13.240 --> 00:03:14.270
  • that this is a man
  • 00:03:14.270 --> 00:03:15.240
  • that wrote this, Dr. Luke.
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:17.110
  • It's just, of course, only a man
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:18.060
  • would say, like,
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:19.030
  • "You will conceive
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:19.210
  • and give birth," like
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:20.160
  • that's what just happens, man,
  • 00:03:20.160 --> 00:03:21.150
  • bang, bang.
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:22.100
  • It's not quite like that
  • 00:03:22.100 --> 00:03:23.150
  • just in case you're wondering.
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:24.210
  • Anyone that's popped out a kid
  • 00:03:24.210 --> 00:03:25.260
  • doesn't go, "You were
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:26.200
  • just conceived and give birth."
  • 00:03:26.200 --> 00:03:27.190
  • Ouch, okay.
  • 00:03:27.190 --> 00:03:28.060
  • And to a son.
  • 00:03:28.060 --> 00:03:29.040
  • And this is like pre-epidural,
  • 00:03:29.040 --> 00:03:31.120
  • sweetheart, so this is painful.
  • 00:03:31.120 --> 00:03:33.040
  • So, "'You will conceive,
  • 00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:34.200
  • give birth to a son,
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:35.220
  • and you are to call him Jesus.
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.030
  • He will be great and will be
  • 00:03:37.030 --> 00:03:38.150
  • called the Son of the Most High.
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:39.200
  • The Lord God will give him
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:40.180
  • the throne of his father David,
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:41.290
  • and he will reign
  • 00:03:41.290 --> 00:03:42.140
  • over Jacob's descendants
  • 00:03:42.140 --> 00:03:43.120
  • forever; his kingdom
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:45.060
  • will never end.'
  • 00:03:45.060 --> 00:03:46.180
  • 'How will this be,'
  • 00:03:46.180 --> 00:03:47.090
  • Mary asked the angel.'"
  • 00:03:47.090 --> 00:03:48.260
  • Did you fail biology?
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:49.260
  • The angel answered,
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:54.030
  • 'The Holy Spirit
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:54.270
  • will come on you,
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:55.220
  • the power of the Most High
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:56.180
  • will overshadow you.
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:57.170
  • So the Holy One to be born
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:59.160
  • will be called the Son of God.
  • 00:03:59.160 --> 00:04:01.070
  • Even Elizabeth your relative
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:04.180
  • is going to have a child
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:05.230
  • in her old age.'"
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:07.180
  • Everyone say, "She was old."
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:10.140
  • "And she who was said
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.140
  • to be unable to conceive
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:14.140
  • is in her sixth month."
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:15.130
  • "And she was said to be
  • 00:04:17.280 --> 00:04:19.000
  • unable to conceive--"
  • 00:04:19.000 --> 00:04:20.290
  • I'm not just talking physically,
  • 00:04:20.290 --> 00:04:23.140
  • spiritually.
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:25.230
  • When God's giving a promise
  • 00:04:25.230 --> 00:04:26.230
  • to a young person,
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:28.040
  • old people don't forget.
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:30.240
  • We're tied into the promise
  • 00:04:30.240 --> 00:04:32.010
  • at the same time.
  • 00:04:32.010 --> 00:04:34.220
  • This woman that was old
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:36.050
  • and unable to conceive
  • 00:04:36.050 --> 00:04:37.180
  • was given a promise.
  • 00:04:37.180 --> 00:04:39.040
  • So she was old and barren,
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:40.110
  • and the promise at the moment
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:41.220
  • is given to a young woman
  • 00:04:41.220 --> 00:04:43.070
  • who was young and fertile.
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:45.020
  • Let me just put this out there,
  • 00:04:45.020 --> 00:04:46.090
  • whether you are old and barren
  • 00:04:46.090 --> 00:04:47.120
  • or young and fertile,
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:48.200
  • if you are gonna give birth
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:49.200
  • to a God dream,
  • 00:04:49.200 --> 00:04:50.240
  • you're going to need God power.
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:52.240
  • It doesn't matter how fertile
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:53.290
  • you are or how barren you are,
  • 00:04:53.290 --> 00:04:56.010
  • it has nothing to do
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:57.020
  • with your fertility,
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:58.030
  • or your barrennesses,
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:04:59.030
  • or your ability,
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:00.030
  • or your limitations.
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:01.080
  • It's got everything to do
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:02.060
  • with a supernatural power of God
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:04.160
  • birthing something
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:05.160
  • through your spirit.
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:07.000
  • And he says to her, "Whether you
  • 00:05:08.150 --> 00:05:11.150
  • are young and fertile or old
  • 00:05:11.150 --> 00:05:13.230
  • about to happen."
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:17.290
  • It goes on and it says,
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:19.120
  • "'For no word from God
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:20.150
  • will ever fail.'
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:21.110
  • 'I am the Lord's servant,'
  • 00:05:21.110 --> 00:05:22.290
  • Mary answered.
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:24.090
  • 'May your word to me
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:26.020
  • be fulfilled.'
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:28.020
  • And then the angel left her."
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:30.030
  • Tonight, I want to talk us
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:31.190
  • from the subject,
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:32.110
  • because out of all of the people
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:35.150
  • in all of humanity that God
  • 00:05:35.150 --> 00:05:36.240
  • ever chose to birth his Son
  • 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:39.190
  • through to this planet,
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:40.240
  • the Messiah, the promised one,
  • 00:05:40.240 --> 00:05:43.140
  • God chose
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:44.000
  • this young, unwed, virgin,
  • 00:05:45.210 --> 00:05:48.210
  • teenage girl
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:49.210
  • in the back of nowhere.
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:51.250
  • God picked a very ordinary girl
  • 00:05:51.250 --> 00:05:53.170
  • through whom he
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:54.180
  • was going to do
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:55.210
  • an extraordinary act.
  • 00:05:56.020 --> 00:05:59.020
  • And the thing that I've
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:05:59.170
  • discovered is God only ever uses
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:01.280
  • ordinary people to do
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:03.010
  • extraordinary things.
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:05.060
  • And I want us to say that there
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:06.200
  • are many things that God
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:07.270
  • wants to do on this earth.
  • 00:06:07.270 --> 00:06:09.050
  • But let me say,
  • 00:06:09.050 --> 00:06:09.250
  • when he needed a Messiah born,
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:13.030
  • we went to a woman.
  • 00:06:13.030 --> 00:06:14.250
  • There are certain things
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:15.200
  • that only a chick can birth.
  • 00:06:15.200 --> 00:06:17.040
  • That's all I'm saying.
  • 00:06:17.040 --> 00:06:18.000
  • And so, he went to a woman
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:20.160
  • and he went to Mary.
  • 00:06:20.160 --> 00:06:23.140
  • And Mary carried God
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:25.260
  • to her generation.
  • 00:06:25.260 --> 00:06:28.250
  • And the application
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:29.170
  • for all of us, whatever gender
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:30.270
  • we are today, is that you and I,
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:33.240
  • if we are born-again,
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:34.190
  • Spirit-filled believers
  • 00:06:34.190 --> 00:06:35.110
  • to carry him to our generation.
  • 00:06:37.230 --> 00:06:40.150
  • We too, like Mary,
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:42.090
  • are God carriers.
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:43.150
  • We're talking about echo
  • 00:06:43.150 --> 00:06:44.180
  • and come.
  • 00:06:44.180 --> 00:06:45.100
  • If we don't go, they won't come.
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:47.060
  • The most important thing God did
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:49.120
  • was put his Holy Spirit
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:51.060
  • on the inside of us
  • 00:06:51.060 --> 00:06:52.130
  • and then said,
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.040
  • "Go into all of the world."
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:55.090
  • Mary physically carried Jesus.
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:58.090
  • You and I are carriers
  • 00:06:58.090 --> 00:07:00.130
  • of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:07:00.130 --> 00:07:02.020
  • of Almighty God.
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:03.130
  • And God has called us
  • 00:07:03.130 --> 00:07:05.020
  • to birth him.
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:07.200
  • God has called us to carry him
  • 00:07:07.200 --> 00:07:10.190
  • to our world.
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:12.140
  • Some of us,
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:13.000
  • we pray theologically
  • 00:07:13.000 --> 00:07:14.040
  • and accurate prayers.
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:16.040
  • We pray, "God, send revival
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.220
  • to Australia.
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.050
  • Send revival to the nations
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:20.120
  • of the earth."
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:21.050
  • And he goes, "I already did.
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:22.080
  • And he says, "Out of you will
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:26.250
  • I need you to birth me
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:32.070
  • into your world
  • 00:07:32.070 --> 00:07:33.150
  • wherever you are.
  • 00:07:33.150 --> 00:07:34.220
  • I need you to carry me
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:36.090
  • into your world."
  • 00:07:36.090 --> 00:07:37.260
  • And God has only ever used
  • 00:07:38.130 --> 00:07:41.130
  • ordinary people to do that.
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:44.130
  • He turns up
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:45.210
  • to this teenage chick.
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:49.040
  • She's getting ready.
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:50.070
  • She's thinking
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:50.220
  • about getting married.
  • 00:07:50.220 --> 00:07:53.100
  • She's thinking about Joseph
  • 00:07:53.100 --> 00:07:54.210
  • and her wedding.
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:56.250
  • God turns up and he interrupts
  • 00:07:56.250 --> 00:07:58.220
  • her plans with his purpose
  • 00:07:58.220 --> 00:08:01.180
  • because that's what God does.
  • 00:08:01.180 --> 00:08:03.170
  • He comes and he's here
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:04.160
  • at Hillsong Conference saying,
  • 00:08:04.160 --> 00:08:05.280
  • "I'm about to interrupt
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:06.190
  • your plans with my purpose,"
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:10.000
  • because his purpose
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:10.210
  • is always so much greater
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:11.200
  • than our plans.
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.230
  • And he turns up to her
  • 00:08:13.230 --> 00:08:16.070
  • as she's getting ready.
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:17.040
  • Who knows
  • 00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:17.190
  • what she's thinking about.
  • 00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:20.120
  • And he says,
  • 00:08:20.120 --> 00:08:20.270
  • "You have found favor.
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:23.150
  • Mary, in fact,
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:24.030
  • you're not just favored,
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.020
  • you are highly favored."
  • 00:08:25.020 --> 00:08:27.270
  • Now, that sounds awesome
  • 00:08:27.270 --> 00:08:28.270
  • because if we were given
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:29.280
  • that instruction
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:30.180
  • by the angel of the Lord
  • 00:08:30.180 --> 00:08:31.140
  • we'd think, "Awesome.
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:32.280
  • Awesome.
  • 00:08:32.280 --> 00:08:33.290
  • I'm gonna go
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:34.180
  • on a reality TV show.
  • 00:08:34.180 --> 00:08:35.170
  • They're gonna pay
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:36.020
  • for my honeymoon.
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.090
  • This is like
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:37.240
  • 'Say Yes To The Dress.'
  • 00:08:37.240 --> 00:08:39.040
  • I have got highly favored
  • 00:08:39.040 --> 00:08:40.260
  • from God.
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:41.160
  • This is awesome."
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:44.000
  • But her life was about to be
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:44.250
  • turned upside down because favor
  • 00:08:44.250 --> 00:08:46.150
  • is for purpose, not for status,
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:47.260
  • the Scripture says.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:50.020
  • When the favor of God
  • 00:08:50.020 --> 00:08:50.240
  • comes upon you,
  • 00:08:50.240 --> 00:08:52.100
  • it's not some, "Bless God.
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:54.160
  • I'm so cool.
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:56.010
  • Favor ain't fair.
  • 00:08:56.010 --> 00:08:56.290
  • It's all about me."
  • 00:08:56.290 --> 00:08:58.260
  • That's not what favor's for
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:01.000
  • because the favor of God
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:02.130
  • coming upon her life
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:03.140
  • was about to mess it up.
  • 00:09:03.140 --> 00:09:06.110
  • The favor of God was going
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:07.170
  • to potentially ostracize her
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:09.290
  • from her community,
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:12.000
  • potentially make her fiancé
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:14.140
  • break up with her because Joseph
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:16.240
  • knew what they had
  • 00:09:16.240 --> 00:09:17.220
  • and had not done.
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:20.150
  • She'd be like, "Hi Joe.
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:22.130
  • I was getting ready this morning
  • 00:09:22.130 --> 00:09:23.130
  • and, like, an angel of the Lord
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:25.080
  • came and, like, I'm pregnant."
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:31.220
  • You know, Nick desperately loved
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:34.000
  • me when we were engaged,
  • 00:09:34.000 --> 00:09:34.280
  • but if I kind of came back
  • 00:09:34.280 --> 00:09:36.120
  • and tried that line on him,
  • 00:09:36.120 --> 00:09:37.160
  • I don't think he
  • 00:09:37.160 --> 00:09:38.010
  • was gonna go with it.
  • 00:09:39.000 --> 00:09:42.000
  • You and I, we've read
  • 00:09:42.000 --> 00:09:42.200
  • the end of the book.
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:43.120
  • We know what happens.
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:44.060
  • We know that Joseph had a dream.
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:45.200
  • She didn't know that was gonna
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:46.160
  • happen because when God comes
  • 00:09:46.160 --> 00:09:49.120
  • to interrupt your plans
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:50.250
  • with his purpose, your life
  • 00:09:50.250 --> 00:09:52.020
  • is gonna be turned upside down.
  • 00:09:52.020 --> 00:09:54.020
  • Your life is gonna be
  • 00:09:54.020 --> 00:09:54.260
  • radically interrupted.
  • 00:09:54.260 --> 00:09:56.140
  • Your life is gonna be
  • 00:09:56.140 --> 00:09:57.050
  • radically inconvenienced,
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:59.210
  • and you're gonna be required
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:00.220
  • to take risks that may cost
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:02.080
  • everything.
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:04.030
  • It could have cost her
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:06.020
  • which would have cost her
  • 00:10:10.000 --> 00:10:10.220
  • her marriage.
  • 00:10:10.220 --> 00:10:12.210
  • She was in a society,
  • 00:10:12.210 --> 00:10:14.260
  • and a culture, and a time
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:17.110
  • where they could have stoned her
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:19.020
  • to death.
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:19.170
  • I'm not talking
  • 00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:20.030
  • about smoking dope.
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:21.000
  • I'm talking about
  • 00:10:21.000 --> 00:10:21.180
  • There are many nations
  • 00:10:27.030 --> 00:10:27.230
  • in the world where this
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:28.190
  • still happens today.
  • 00:10:28.190 --> 00:10:31.110
  • But the angel of the Lord said,
  • 00:10:31.110 --> 00:10:32.060
  • "You're highly favored."
  • 00:10:32.060 --> 00:10:35.060
  • You and I are highly favored.
  • 00:10:35.060 --> 00:10:36.160
  • We get to carry God.
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:39.100
  • - Christine: My extended world
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:45.210
  • was abused by several men
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:48.120
  • for many, many years
  • 00:10:48.120 --> 00:10:49.140
  • of my life.
  • 00:10:49.140 --> 00:10:50.200
  • Marginalized
  • 00:10:50.200 --> 00:10:51.080
  • because of my ethnicity
  • 00:10:51.080 --> 00:10:52.160
  • in a culture that did not esteem
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:54.070
  • women.
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:54.270
  • But church, I read the book,
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:10:56.060
  • and my Bible says
  • 00:10:56.060 --> 00:10:57.100
  • it's redeemed my life
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:10:58.070
  • from the pit, that I don't need
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:10:59.120
  • to live as any kind of victim,
  • 00:10:59.120 --> 00:11:01.200
  • but we are more than conquerors
  • 00:11:01.200 --> 00:11:03.270
  • through Christ Jesus
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:04.270
  • - Christine: How many ways God
  • 00:11:15.000 --> 00:11:15.260
  • could have come up with to reach
  • 00:11:15.260 --> 00:11:17.070
  • this world that he said,
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:17.290
  • "I might just put my Spirit
  • 00:11:17.290 --> 00:11:19.130
  • in my people and then send
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:21.130
  • my people into the world
  • 00:11:21.130 --> 00:11:23.000
  • full of my Spirit.
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:25.150
  • Not only my power gifts,
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:27.000
  • but also love, and joy,
  • 00:11:27.000 --> 00:11:29.120
  • and peace, and kindness,
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:30.030
  • and gentleness,
  • 00:11:30.030 --> 00:11:30.280
  • and longsuffering, and goodness,
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:32.030
  • and self-control
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:32.290
  • because they're gonna need it."
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:36.100
  • And the world is gonna need it.
  • 00:11:36.100 --> 00:11:38.160
  • And the world is popping pills.
  • 00:11:38.160 --> 00:11:39.270
  • And the world is watching movie,
  • 00:11:40.110 --> 00:11:43.110
  • or TV after TV,
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:44.140
  • or show after show,
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.160
  • or going through social media,
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:46.220
  • or doing anything to anesthetize
  • 00:11:46.220 --> 00:11:48.090
  • our pain,
  • 00:11:48.090 --> 00:11:49.020
  • And we carry
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:53.190
  • what our world wants,
  • 00:11:53.190 --> 00:11:55.040
  • what our world needs.
  • 00:11:55.040 --> 00:11:56.100
  • Our world needs love.
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:11:57.180
  • Our world needs joy.
  • 00:11:57.180 --> 00:11:59.020
  • Our world needs peace.
  • 00:11:59.020 --> 00:12:00.190
  • Our world needs kindness.
  • 00:12:00.190 --> 00:12:01.260
  • Our world needs goodness.
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.150
  • And God says, "I'm asking you
  • 00:12:07.080 --> 00:12:09.200
  • to carry me to your world.
  • 00:12:11.040 --> 00:12:14.040
  • I'm asking you to pay the price
  • 00:12:14.040 --> 00:12:16.250
  • like Mary did to go
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:19.250
  • into the world so that they
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:22.190
  • would see me through your life,
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:26.120
  • but you're gonna have to be
  • 00:12:26.120 --> 00:12:27.130
  • willing to have your life
  • 00:12:27.130 --> 00:12:29.000
  • turned upside down."
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:31.010
  • You're gonna have to be willing
  • 00:12:31.010 --> 00:12:32.240
  • to allow him to replace
  • 00:12:32.240 --> 00:12:34.030
  • your plans and your dreams
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:35.260
  • with his plans, his purpose,
  • 00:12:36.220 --> 00:12:39.220
  • and his dreams.
  • 00:12:39.220 --> 00:12:42.040
  • And a lot of us, even as you're
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:43.070
  • listening to me, you think,
  • 00:12:43.070 --> 00:12:45.110
  • "Well, Christine, I'd love to do
  • 00:12:45.110 --> 00:12:46.030
  • my story.
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:49.140
  • My life's like a write-off.
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:51.190
  • You don't know what I've done.
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:52.150
  • You don't know where I've been.
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:53.080
  • You don't know
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:12:53.230
  • But the thing that we learn
  • 00:12:56.090 --> 00:12:58.040
  • from this text, from this girl
  • 00:12:58.040 --> 00:12:59.200
  • is that God will, and can,
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:01.220
  • and does use
  • 00:13:01.220 --> 00:13:03.210
  • absolutely anybody.
  • 00:13:03.210 --> 00:13:05.260
  • He always has
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:06.160
  • and he always will.
  • 00:13:06.160 --> 00:13:07.240
  • He's always used
  • 00:13:07.240 --> 00:13:08.210
  • the foolish things of the world
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.270
  • to confound the wise
  • 00:13:09.270 --> 00:13:11.110
  • because it's not about
  • 00:13:11.110 --> 00:13:12.180
  • the container, it's about
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:13.240
  • what's in the container.
  • 00:13:13.240 --> 00:13:15.130
  • And it's the Spirit of God in us
  • 00:13:15.130 --> 00:13:17.080
  • getting into a lost
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:18.140
  • and a broken world.
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:19.120
  • For those of you
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:20.090
  • that don't know,
  • 00:13:20.090 --> 00:13:21.010
  • I'm not in this nation much
  • 00:13:23.040 --> 00:13:23.270
  • anymore.
  • 00:13:23.270 --> 00:13:24.140
  • There would be many.
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:25.240
  • When I was born
  • 00:13:25.240 --> 00:13:26.140
  • in Crown Street
  • 00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:27.060
  • in that hospital unnamed
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:30.220
  • and unwanted
  • 00:13:30.220 --> 00:13:31.180
  • just 20 minutes down the road,
  • 00:13:31.180 --> 00:13:32.290
  • 30 minutes.
  • 00:13:32.290 --> 00:13:35.060
  • At 33, I found out that I
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:37.060
  • was adopted.
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.210
  • I had no idea.
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:40.270
  • Imagine growing up
  • 00:13:40.270 --> 00:13:41.180
  • your whole life thinking
  • 00:13:41.180 --> 00:13:43.230
  • you're somebody
  • 00:13:43.230 --> 00:13:44.130
  • and then finding out you're not
  • 00:13:44.130 --> 00:13:45.210
  • who you thought you were.
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:48.260
  • Your name's not
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:49.110
  • what you thought it was.
  • 00:13:49.110 --> 00:13:50.260
  • Your history's not what you
  • 00:13:50.260 --> 00:13:51.170
  • thought it was.
  • 00:13:51.170 --> 00:13:52.110
  • Your parents aren't who you
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:53.020
  • thought they were.
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:55.280
  • I was left in a hospital unnamed
  • 00:13:55.280 --> 00:13:57.230
  • and unwanted.
  • 00:13:57.230 --> 00:13:58.100
  • I grew up in Sydney, Australia,
  • 00:13:58.100 --> 00:14:00.220
  • which I love this nation,
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:02.050
  • but I grew up
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:02.210
  • pre-multicultural Australia
  • 00:14:02.210 --> 00:14:05.100
  • when it was not cool to be Greek
  • 00:14:05.100 --> 00:14:07.030
  • in Australia.
  • 00:14:07.030 --> 00:14:08.150
  • Now we have
  • 00:14:08.150 --> 00:14:09.010
  • "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
  • 00:14:09.010 --> 00:14:09.280
  • and we all love Greeks,
  • 00:14:09.280 --> 00:14:11.060
  • and we love feta cheese,
  • 00:14:11.060 --> 00:14:11.260
  • But when I was growing up,
  • 00:14:16.140 --> 00:14:17.240
  • we did not like W-O-G-Ss.
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:24.250
  • And I was called one of those
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:26.060
  • every day with another word
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:29.080
  • in front of it that I can't say
  • 00:14:29.080 --> 00:14:30.070
  • on a platform.
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:30.240
  • But anyway, marginalized because
  • 00:14:31.280 --> 00:14:34.280
  • of my ethnicity in a culture
  • 00:14:34.280 --> 00:14:36.160
  • that did not esteem women.
  • 00:14:36.160 --> 00:14:39.120
  • Never taught that a woman
  • 00:14:39.120 --> 00:14:40.070
  • could dream.
  • 00:14:40.070 --> 00:14:40.250
  • I was just taught a woman was
  • 00:14:40.250 --> 00:14:41.220
  • a lean, mean,
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:42.120
  • baby-making machine
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:46.090
  • and that was it,
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:47.010
  • which I love that, done that.
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:48.030
  • Got married, had kids.
  • 00:14:48.030 --> 00:14:49.020
  • It's fantastic,
  • 00:14:49.020 --> 00:14:49.220
  • but there was more.
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:53.080
  • Grew up with a wonderful family,
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:56.170
  • but in my extended world,
  • 00:14:56.170 --> 00:14:59.040
  • not in my immediate family,
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:00.040
  • my extended world was abused
  • 00:15:00.040 --> 00:15:02.040
  • by several men
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:03.210
  • for many, many years of my life.
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:07.010
  • It messes with you.
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:08.210
  • I never went
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:09.060
  • from one stage of development
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:10.120
  • to the other in any healthy way.
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:13.030
  • My life was full
  • 00:15:13.030 --> 00:15:13.180
  • of developmental wounding.
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:15.010
  • I was full of anger.
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:16.210
  • I was full of shame.
  • 00:15:16.210 --> 00:15:17.280
  • I was full of rejection.
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:22.060
  • I was full of fear.
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:24.180
  • I had every reason to think
  • 00:15:27.240 --> 00:15:30.100
  • that I was disqualified
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:31.160
  • from the purposes of God
  • 00:15:31.160 --> 00:15:32.210
  • as if God could use me.
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:33.260
  • There'd be people sitting
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:34.140
  • in this room.
  • 00:15:34.140 --> 00:15:36.200
  • My early days of church,
  • 00:15:36.200 --> 00:15:37.190
  • I was one of the people sitting
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:38.270
  • in this room.
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:40.140
  • They used to think,
  • 00:15:40.140 --> 00:15:40.290
  • "How could God use me?"
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:43.190
  • I wanted to believe
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:44.090
  • what Pastor Brian was saying,
  • 00:15:44.090 --> 00:15:45.170
  • but if they only knew
  • 00:15:45.170 --> 00:15:46.160
  • about my background.
  • 00:15:46.160 --> 00:15:48.110
  • If they only knew what I'd done,
  • 00:15:48.150 --> 00:15:51.150
  • then somehow this message
  • 00:15:51.150 --> 00:15:53.100
  • wouldn't really, really pertain
  • 00:15:53.100 --> 00:15:56.080
  • to me because they don't know.
  • 00:15:56.090 --> 00:15:59.090
  • They don't know what was done
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:15:59.270
  • to me.
  • 00:15:59.270 --> 00:16:00.110
  • They don't know
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:00.270
  • that I'm used goods.
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:01.270
  • They don't know
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:02.160
  • that I have failed.
  • 00:16:02.160 --> 00:16:03.070
  • They don't know
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:03.220
  • that I've missed out.
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:05.160
  • Somehow thinking there's
  • 00:16:05.160 --> 00:16:06.090
  • a disclaimer in the Bible
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:07.220
  • that just says, well, God
  • 00:16:07.220 --> 00:16:09.040
  • can use anyone except for people
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:10.100
  • that maybe have been abused,
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.200
  • or except people
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:12.120
  • that have maybe messed up
  • 00:16:12.120 --> 00:16:13.100
  • really bad, or except people--
  • 00:16:13.100 --> 00:16:16.080
  • There would be thousands,
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:17.130
  • I don't need to be a prophet
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:18.000
  • to work that out, that think,
  • 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:19.220
  • "I want to believe what they're
  • 00:16:19.220 --> 00:16:21.040
  • saying at this conference
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:22.120
  • is true, but if they only knew."
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:26.040
  • And see, I was that person.
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:27.070
  • I've come for that person
  • 00:16:27.070 --> 00:16:27.270
  • tonight.
  • 00:16:27.270 --> 00:16:29.240
  • I'm come for that one of you
  • 00:16:29.240 --> 00:16:32.190
  • that's sitting up, I don't know
  • 00:16:32.190 --> 00:16:33.170
  • where, that thinks you've done
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:34.260
  • the one thing,
  • 00:16:34.260 --> 00:16:36.260
  • or it has happened to you
  • 00:16:36.260 --> 00:16:37.260
  • and God can't use you
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:39.230
  • because of what's happened.
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:42.140
  • I tell people everywhere, I fit
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:44.050
  • every government funding
  • 00:16:44.050 --> 00:16:45.060
  • category in Australia.
  • 00:16:45.060 --> 00:16:47.100
  • I'm like a marginalized,
  • 00:16:47.100 --> 00:16:48.280
  • depressed, dispossessed, poor,
  • 00:16:48.280 --> 00:16:50.290
  • ethnic minority, abused,
  • 00:16:50.290 --> 00:16:52.280
  • adopted chick.
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:55.080
  • Do you know how much money
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:16:57.000
  • I could make
  • 00:16:57.000 --> 00:16:57.150
  • on government funding?
  • 00:16:57.150 --> 00:17:00.110
  • They fund people like me
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:01.200
  • and they say,
  • 00:17:01.200 --> 00:17:02.060
  • "Victim, come back next week,
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:04.070
  • and we'll give you money,
  • 00:17:04.070 --> 00:17:05.080
  • and we'll give you that label.
  • 00:17:05.080 --> 00:17:06.280
  • And come back and collect
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:08.000
  • more money so we
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:08.230
  • can keep labeling you a victim."
  • 00:17:08.230 --> 00:17:10.230
  • But church, I read the book,
  • 00:17:10.230 --> 00:17:12.020
  • and my Bible says
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:13.060
  • he's redeemed my life
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:14.060
  • from the pit, that I don't need
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:15.180
  • to live as any kind of victim.
  • 00:17:15.180 --> 00:17:17.160
  • But we are more than conquerors
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:19.220
  • through Christ Jesus
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:20.190
  • who strengthens us!
  • 00:17:22.110 --> 00:17:25.110
  • And the day I discovered
  • 00:17:25.110 --> 00:17:26.150
  • that God could use
  • 00:17:26.150 --> 00:17:27.100
  • somebody like me
  • 00:17:27.100 --> 00:17:28.150
  • is when I made a decision
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:30.050
  • in an environment like this,
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:31.160
  • in a conference like this,
  • 00:17:31.160 --> 00:17:33.000
  • that I was going to make
  • 00:17:33.000 --> 00:17:35.030
  • what Jesus did on the cross
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:37.070
  • for me bigger
  • 00:17:37.070 --> 00:17:38.260
  • than what anybody else
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:40.010
  • had done to me.
  • 00:17:40.010 --> 00:17:41.060
  • I was gonna make what Jesus did
  • 00:17:41.060 --> 00:17:43.100
  • for me bigger
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:44.190
  • than what anybody else
  • 00:17:44.190 --> 00:17:45.240
  • has said to me.
  • 00:17:45.240 --> 00:17:47.070
  • That I was gonna make a decision
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:49.120
  • that the blood of Jesus
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:51.080
  • that was shed at Calvary
  • 00:17:51.080 --> 00:17:52.200
  • was going to set me free.
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:55.030
  • Some people say, "Chris, you are
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:57.050
  • just free because that's
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:58.120
  • your personality type.
  • 00:17:58.120 --> 00:18:00.060
  • You're just a high D."
  • 00:18:00.060 --> 00:18:01.160
  • Let me tell you something,
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:02.240
  • freedom is not
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:04.000
  • a personality type.
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.160
  • Freedom is a blood type.
  • 00:18:05.160 --> 00:18:07.110
  • It's the blood
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:08.010
  • of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:09.270
  • It sets people free!
  • 00:18:10.020 --> 00:18:13.020
  • It sets us all free.
  • 00:18:13.020 --> 00:18:16.020
  • So, I don't know what your start
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:17.150
  • in life is, but I do know
  • 00:18:17.150 --> 00:18:19.250
  • that your history does not need
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:20.260
  • to define your destiny.
  • 00:18:20.260 --> 00:18:22.200
  • I do know that Jesus Christ can
  • 00:18:22.200 --> 00:18:23.260
  • use you, whatever you've done,
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:26.000
  • wherever you've been.
  • 00:18:26.000 --> 00:18:27.020
  • I am living proof that no demon
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:30.020
  • in hell and no person on earth
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:32.010
  • can stop the plan and purpose
  • 00:18:32.010 --> 00:18:34.080
  • of God for your life.
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:36.010
  • The God that lives in you
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:37.260
  • is greater than anything
  • 00:18:37.260 --> 00:18:39.220
  • that has happened to you.
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.030
  • Make Jesus bigger
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:43.110
  • than what has happened.
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.070
  • God has only ever used
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.070
  • ordinary people.
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:47.210
  • And you know what God's like?
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:49.070
  • He's like,
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:49.240
  • "You know what, devil?
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:50.140
  • I'm just gonna stick this--you
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:51.180
  • can stick this in your pipe
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:52.080
  • and smoke it."
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:53.030
  • 'Cause not only did God
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:54.260
  • rescue me.
  • 00:18:54.260 --> 00:18:55.290
  • He said, "You know what?
  • 00:18:55.290 --> 00:18:57.040
  • I might just now use you
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:59.020
  • to rescue abused, abandoned,
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:01.040
  • trafficked, abandoned girls
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:02.220
  • all around the world."
  • 00:19:02.220 --> 00:19:04.010
  • It's kind of how that--
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:05.050
  • - Christine: I don't know why
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:11.210
  • we keep blaming politicians
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:13.020
  • for being politicians,
  • 00:19:13.020 --> 00:19:14.100
  • why we keep blaming bankers
  • 00:19:14.100 --> 00:19:15.170
  • for being bankers,
  • 00:19:15.170 --> 00:19:16.120
  • why we keep blaming lawyers
  • 00:19:16.120 --> 00:19:17.270
  • for being lawyers,
  • 00:19:17.270 --> 00:19:18.200
  • why we keep blaming the media
  • 00:19:18.200 --> 00:19:19.260
  • for being the media.
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:20.210
  • That's what they are.
  • 00:19:20.210 --> 00:19:21.280
  • We are the church, not them.
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:23.220
  • We are commissioned
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:24.220
  • to take Jesus
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:25.140
  • to a lost and a broken world.
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.070
  • That is the whole mandate
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:28.260
  • - Christine: Not only does he
  • 00:19:38.000 --> 00:19:38.190
  • rescue you, but then he uses
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:41.270
  • your past to give somebody else
  • 00:19:41.270 --> 00:19:43.120
  • a future.
  • 00:19:43.120 --> 00:19:45.060
  • God takes
  • 00:19:45.060 --> 00:19:45.210
  • all of the broken fragments
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:47.090
  • of your past and he
  • 00:19:47.090 --> 00:19:49.130
  • never wastes a hurt.
  • 00:19:49.130 --> 00:19:51.210
  • He never wastes a hurt.
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:53.280
  • So, I'm telling you I'm
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:54.230
  • the chick that grew up
  • 00:19:54.230 --> 00:19:55.170
  • in Blacktown, the chick
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:57.060
  • that was left unnamed
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:19:58.130
  • in Crown Street.
  • 00:19:58.130 --> 00:19:59.030
  • My birth certificate
  • 00:19:59.030 --> 00:20:00.080
  • does not have a name on it.
  • 00:20:00.080 --> 00:20:01.240
  • It says,
  • 00:20:01.240 --> 00:20:02.090
  • "Unnamed number 2508 of 1966."
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:07.050
  • If God can take an unnamed,
  • 00:20:07.050 --> 00:20:08.260
  • unwanted, abused, adopted chick
  • 00:20:08.260 --> 00:20:10.290
  • from the back
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:11.280
  • of Sydney, Australia
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:13.030
  • if he could do it for me,
  • 00:20:15.040 --> 00:20:15.260
  • he can do it for anybody
  • 00:20:15.260 --> 00:20:17.180
  • in this room, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:20:17.180 --> 00:20:18.260
  • in this room.
  • 00:20:21.060 --> 00:20:24.060
  • And so, he uses
  • 00:20:24.060 --> 00:20:26.070
  • an unlikely woman and he says
  • 00:20:26.070 --> 00:20:28.150
  • to her, "Fear not.
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:31.180
  • Fear not.
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:32.040
  • Do not be afraid," because fear
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:34.160
  • is the greatest killer
  • 00:20:34.160 --> 00:20:35.210
  • of destiny.
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:37.270
  • Fear is what will take you out.
  • 00:20:37.270 --> 00:20:40.060
  • God has not given us
  • 00:20:40.060 --> 00:20:40.280
  • a spirit of fear, but of love,
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:42.260
  • power, and a sound mind.
  • 00:20:42.260 --> 00:20:43.270
  • I think it's funny
  • 00:20:43.270 --> 00:20:45.120
  • that the angel of the Lord said,
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:46.080
  • "Fear not."
  • 00:20:46.080 --> 00:20:46.260
  • I mean, this is
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:47.160
  • like a thumping huge angel.
  • 00:20:47.160 --> 00:20:48.260
  • It's not like a little dude
  • 00:20:48.260 --> 00:20:49.160
  • playing a harp.
  • 00:20:49.160 --> 00:20:50.150
  • Don't have that kind of image.
  • 00:20:50.190 --> 00:20:53.190
  • And, you know, he's just told
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:54.210
  • her that she's gonna conceive
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:56.210
  • and birth God.
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:58.070
  • Can you just figure that?
  • 00:20:58.070 --> 00:20:59.280
  • I mean, this is the guy
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:00.260
  • that just like flung
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:01.260
  • all of the galaxies
  • 00:21:01.260 --> 00:21:03.190
  • into wherever, you know,
  • 00:21:03.190 --> 00:21:05.090
  • you just kind of fling them
  • 00:21:05.090 --> 00:21:06.040
  • and here we are today.
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:07.020
  • And that God was gonna be put
  • 00:21:07.020 --> 00:21:09.230
  • into fingers and toes and put
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:11.030
  • on the inside of her womb.
  • 00:21:11.030 --> 00:21:12.170
  • Look, if you've had a baby,
  • 00:21:12.170 --> 00:21:13.190
  • you think a 10-pounder
  • 00:21:13.190 --> 00:21:14.140
  • is a little bit scary.
  • 00:21:14.140 --> 00:21:16.030
  • Imagine trying to birth
  • 00:21:16.030 --> 00:21:16.290
  • I mean, you know,
  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:19.170
  • that's like hello.
  • 00:21:19.170 --> 00:21:20.160
  • Without an epidural,
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:21.090
  • pre-C-sections.
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:22.050
  • It would be painful.
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:29.010
  • But he says, "Fear not."
  • 00:21:29.010 --> 00:21:31.100
  • And then you have to get
  • 00:21:31.100 --> 00:21:31.270
  • to a place
  • 00:21:31.270 --> 00:21:32.170
  • if you're gonna carry God
  • 00:21:32.170 --> 00:21:33.130
  • to your generation that you are
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:35.180
  • gonna make what you do know
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:36.220
  • about God greater than what you
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:38.100
  • don't know about the future.
  • 00:21:38.100 --> 00:21:40.250
  • See, a lot of us, we freak out,
  • 00:21:40.250 --> 00:21:42.030
  • "What if?"
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:43.070
  • And Mary could have done that.
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:44.010
  • "What if?
  • 00:21:44.010 --> 00:21:44.190
  • What if Joseph leaves me?
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:45.120
  • What if my parents abandon me?
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:46.140
  • What I'm killed or ostracized?"
  • 00:21:46.140 --> 00:21:49.040
  • We go,
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:49.190
  • "What if my friends ridicule me
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:50.280
  • because I've decided,
  • 00:21:50.280 --> 00:21:51.280
  • I've made some strong decisions?
  • 00:21:51.280 --> 00:21:54.090
  • I've decided I'm gonna follow
  • 00:21:54.090 --> 00:21:55.040
  • Jesus, and no matter
  • 00:21:55.040 --> 00:21:56.150
  • what I've done before, from now,
  • 00:21:56.150 --> 00:21:58.050
  • I'm gonna keep myself for Jesus.
  • 00:21:58.050 --> 00:22:01.030
  • For now, I'm going to live
  • 00:22:01.030 --> 00:22:02.230
  • a life of integrity and purity.
  • 00:22:02.230 --> 00:22:05.070
  • From here on in, I'm gonna live
  • 00:22:05.070 --> 00:22:07.000
  • a life that my friends
  • 00:22:07.000 --> 00:22:09.040
  • may ridicule me because it costs
  • 00:22:09.040 --> 00:22:10.280
  • to follow Jesus.
  • 00:22:11.070 --> 00:22:14.070
  • From a business person
  • 00:22:14.070 --> 00:22:14.260
  • in this room,
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:15.110
  • I'm gonna live a life
  • 00:22:15.110 --> 00:22:16.050
  • where I'm not gonna compromise.
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:20.010
  • I'm not gonna compromise
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:21.000
  • in my work ethic,
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.130
  • and what I say,
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:24.010
  • and my words are gonna be true.
  • 00:22:24.010 --> 00:22:26.120
  • And even if gonna cost me deals
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:28.270
  • and businesses, I'm gonna trust
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:30.040
  • God that if I do his way,
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:32.070
  • and I don't cheat,
  • 00:22:32.070 --> 00:22:32.280
  • and I don't lie.
  • 00:22:33.130 --> 00:22:36.130
  • And I'm gonna be
  • 00:22:36.130 --> 00:22:36.290
  • the salt and life of the earth.
  • 00:22:36.290 --> 00:22:38.040
  • And so, when I tweet, and when I
  • 00:22:38.040 --> 00:22:39.270
  • Instagram, and when I blog,
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:43.060
  • I'm gonna understand that I'm
  • 00:22:43.060 --> 00:22:43.290
  • an ambassador for Christ
  • 00:22:43.290 --> 00:22:45.090
  • so I'm not gonna be
  • 00:22:45.090 --> 00:22:45.290
  • full of fear, and doubt,
  • 00:22:45.290 --> 00:22:46.280
  • and negativity.
  • 00:22:46.280 --> 00:22:49.090
  • And I'm not gonna be someone
  • 00:22:49.090 --> 00:22:51.060
  • that's hostile,
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:52.030
  • and antagonistic,
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:53.030
  • and self-righteous,
  • 00:22:53.030 --> 00:22:54.050
  • and judgmental,
  • 00:22:54.050 --> 00:22:54.240
  • but I'm gonna be full of love,
  • 00:22:54.240 --> 00:22:56.030
  • and joy, and peace.
  • 00:22:56.030 --> 00:22:57.050
  • This goes to social media
  • 00:22:57.050 --> 00:22:58.170
  • as well.
  • 00:22:58.170 --> 00:22:59.130
  • Love, and joy, and peace,
  • 00:22:59.130 --> 00:23:01.130
  • and kindness, and gentleness,
  • 00:23:01.130 --> 00:23:03.030
  • and longsuffering,
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:03.190
  • and self-control.
  • 00:23:04.240 --> 00:23:07.240
  • I'm gonna allow my Christianity
  • 00:23:07.240 --> 00:23:09.000
  • to permeate
  • 00:23:09.000 --> 00:23:09.180
  • every facet of my life
  • 00:23:09.180 --> 00:23:11.260
  • because I'm a God carrier.
  • 00:23:11.260 --> 00:23:14.190
  • I'm a God carrier."
  • 00:23:14.190 --> 00:23:17.180
  • And some of you
  • 00:23:17.180 --> 00:23:18.030
  • at this conference, this thing,
  • 00:23:18.030 --> 00:23:20.070
  • sometimes you're carrying.
  • 00:23:20.070 --> 00:23:22.030
  • There was those early months
  • 00:23:22.030 --> 00:23:23.020
  • nobody would have known
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:24.040
  • that Mary was carrying God,
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:25.120
  • but she did,
  • 00:23:25.120 --> 00:23:27.100
  • so nobody else understands
  • 00:23:27.100 --> 00:23:28.110
  • why suddenly, you're acting
  • 00:23:28.110 --> 00:23:29.150
  • a little bit different
  • 00:23:29.150 --> 00:23:30.080
  • but you're carrying God.
  • 00:23:30.080 --> 00:23:33.000
  • You're carrying God.
  • 00:23:33.000 --> 00:23:33.190
  • You're gonna leave here
  • 00:23:33.190 --> 00:23:34.130
  • differently.
  • 00:23:34.130 --> 00:23:35.270
  • And then you begin to show
  • 00:23:35.270 --> 00:23:37.080
  • and that's when the naysayers
  • 00:23:37.080 --> 00:23:38.080
  • begin to ridicule.
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:41.100
  • But you have got to stay firm
  • 00:23:41.100 --> 00:23:43.230
  • and in the day and the hour
  • 00:23:43.230 --> 00:23:44.240
  • in which we live,
  • 00:23:44.240 --> 00:23:45.150
  • if we don't carry God
  • 00:23:45.150 --> 00:23:46.240
  • to our world, I don't know
  • 00:23:46.240 --> 00:23:47.270
  • who you think is going to.
  • 00:23:47.270 --> 00:23:50.180
  • It is the commissioning
  • 00:23:50.180 --> 00:23:51.170
  • of the church.
  • 00:23:51.170 --> 00:23:53.100
  • I don't know why we keep blaming
  • 00:23:53.100 --> 00:23:55.080
  • politicians for being
  • 00:23:55.080 --> 00:23:56.070
  • politicians, why we keep blaming
  • 00:23:56.070 --> 00:23:58.000
  • bankers for being bankers,
  • 00:23:58.000 --> 00:23:59.120
  • why we keep blaming lawyers
  • 00:23:59.120 --> 00:24:00.220
  • for being lawyers,
  • 00:24:00.220 --> 00:24:01.140
  • why we keep blaming
  • 00:24:01.140 --> 00:24:02.100
  • the media for being the media.
  • 00:24:02.100 --> 00:24:03.160
  • That's what they are.
  • 00:24:03.160 --> 00:24:04.260
  • We are the church, not them.
  • 00:24:04.260 --> 00:24:06.220
  • We are commissioned
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:07.190
  • to take Jesus
  • 00:24:07.190 --> 00:24:08.080
  • That is the whole mandate
  • 00:24:10.080 --> 00:24:11.230
  • that we've been given.
  • 00:24:11.230 --> 00:24:14.030
  • And so, she did that.
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:16.090
  • when the angel of the Lord gave
  • 00:24:19.050 --> 00:24:20.120
  • her the charge, what he asked
  • 00:24:20.120 --> 00:24:23.000
  • her to do, it was not difficult.
  • 00:24:23.000 --> 00:24:25.220
  • It was impossible.
  • 00:24:25.220 --> 00:24:28.120
  • I need you to understand that.
  • 00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:30.000
  • When God calls you to do
  • 00:24:30.000 --> 00:24:31.060
  • something, it's not difficult
  • 00:24:31.060 --> 00:24:33.220
  • because difficult you can do,
  • 00:24:33.220 --> 00:24:36.200
  • impossible you can't.
  • 00:24:36.200 --> 00:24:39.050
  • So it doesn't even start to be
  • 00:24:39.050 --> 00:24:40.180
  • God until it's impossible.
  • 00:24:40.180 --> 00:24:43.130
  • "Sometimes, I mean,
  • 00:24:43.130 --> 00:24:44.020
  • this is so hard."
  • 00:24:44.020 --> 00:24:45.020
  • It's like, no, no,
  • 00:24:45.020 --> 00:24:45.270
  • that's just hard.
  • 00:24:45.270 --> 00:24:47.260
  • Difficult is just difficult.
  • 00:24:47.260 --> 00:24:49.190
  • But pregnant virgin, impossible.
  • 00:24:50.150 --> 00:24:53.150
  • Pregnant old lady with ovaries
  • 00:24:53.150 --> 00:24:55.020
  • dried up, no eggs, impossible.
  • 00:24:58.230 --> 00:25:01.250
  • We need to get into that realm
  • 00:25:01.250 --> 00:25:03.100
  • and that's what the Lord's
  • 00:25:03.100 --> 00:25:03.280
  • stirring at this conference,
  • 00:25:03.280 --> 00:25:06.140
  • that realm where God,
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:07.030
  • we truly believe that God
  • 00:25:07.030 --> 00:25:08.140
  • is able to do
  • 00:25:08.140 --> 00:25:09.040
  • exceedingly abundantly above
  • 00:25:09.040 --> 00:25:10.080
  • and beyond anything we
  • 00:25:10.080 --> 00:25:11.050
  • could ever ask, hope, or think.
  • 00:25:11.050 --> 00:25:12.210
  • When we believe that our eye
  • 00:25:12.210 --> 00:25:13.220
  • has not seen, our ears have not
  • 00:25:13.220 --> 00:25:15.080
  • heard, nor has it entered
  • 00:25:15.080 --> 00:25:16.100
  • into our hearts the things
  • 00:25:16.100 --> 00:25:17.180
  • that God has for us.
  • 00:25:17.180 --> 00:25:18.260
  • We need to get
  • 00:25:18.260 --> 00:25:19.200
  • into that impossible realm.
  • 00:25:19.200 --> 00:25:21.100
  • I remember when we started A-21,
  • 00:25:21.100 --> 00:25:24.040
  • when the Lord called me,
  • 00:25:24.040 --> 00:25:25.040
  • you never feel ready.
  • 00:25:25.040 --> 00:25:26.250
  • You never feel like you
  • 00:25:26.250 --> 00:25:27.180
  • can do it.
  • 00:25:27.180 --> 00:25:28.280
  • I was just early 40s.
  • 00:25:28.280 --> 00:25:30.170
  • I had just popped out
  • 00:25:30.170 --> 00:25:31.100
  • my second kid.
  • 00:25:31.100 --> 00:25:32.250
  • And I'm telling you,
  • 00:25:32.250 --> 00:25:33.150
  • when you are over 40 and you
  • 00:25:33.150 --> 00:25:35.190
  • have popped out a kid,
  • 00:25:35.190 --> 00:25:36.290
  • you are not looking to start
  • 00:25:36.290 --> 00:25:38.030
  • an anti-trafficking
  • 00:25:38.030 --> 00:25:38.270
  • organization.
  • 00:25:38.270 --> 00:25:40.050
  • You want a purple heart and you
  • 00:25:40.050 --> 00:25:41.250
  • want to go sit on a Greek island
  • 00:25:41.250 --> 00:25:43.210
  • and drink Perrier.
  • 00:25:44.200 --> 00:25:47.200
  • - Christine: Let me tell you
  • 00:25:51.270 --> 00:25:52.150
  • something, I don't know who you
  • 00:25:52.150 --> 00:25:53.190
  • are and I don't know
  • 00:25:53.190 --> 00:25:54.270
  • what God's called you to do,
  • 00:25:54.270 --> 00:25:56.080
  • but all I'm saying to you
  • 00:25:56.080 --> 00:25:57.130
  • is impossible is where God
  • 00:25:57.130 --> 00:25:59.050
  • starts and miracles
  • 00:25:59.050 --> 00:26:00.270
  • are what God does.
  • 00:26:00.270 --> 00:26:02.080
  • It's the currency of heaven.
  • 00:26:02.080 --> 00:26:03.250
  • - Christine: I remember when we
  • 00:26:16.100 --> 00:26:17.200
  • started A-21, when the Lord
  • 00:26:17.200 --> 00:26:19.150
  • called me, you never feel ready.
  • 00:26:19.150 --> 00:26:21.220
  • And I'm telling you when you are
  • 00:26:21.220 --> 00:26:22.210
  • over 40 and you have popped out
  • 00:26:22.210 --> 00:26:25.030
  • a kid, you are not looking
  • 00:26:25.030 --> 00:26:26.120
  • to start an anti-trafficking
  • 00:26:26.120 --> 00:26:27.170
  • organization.
  • 00:26:27.170 --> 00:26:28.270
  • You want a purple heart and you
  • 00:26:28.270 --> 00:26:30.170
  • want to go sit on a Greek island
  • 00:26:30.170 --> 00:26:32.020
  • - Christine: I was not looking
  • 00:26:37.010 --> 00:26:37.200
  • to start anything,
  • 00:26:37.200 --> 00:26:39.080
  • and I remember when we hired
  • 00:26:39.080 --> 00:26:40.210
  • the consultants and sent them
  • 00:26:40.210 --> 00:26:42.070
  • into Thessaloniki.
  • 00:26:42.070 --> 00:26:43.220
  • And I already told them
  • 00:26:43.220 --> 00:26:45.150
  • we're not gonna be, you know,
  • 00:26:45.150 --> 00:26:47.070
  • no one is there.
  • 00:26:47.070 --> 00:26:48.070
  • No one is in that region
  • 00:26:48.070 --> 00:26:49.070
  • of the world because it's
  • 00:26:49.070 --> 00:26:50.120
  • not easy.
  • 00:26:50.120 --> 00:26:52.170
  • And Greeks, Greece at the time
  • 00:26:52.170 --> 00:26:54.050
  • was on the verge
  • 00:26:54.050 --> 00:26:54.260
  • of economic collapse.
  • 00:26:54.260 --> 00:26:56.080
  • It was in 2008.
  • 00:26:56.080 --> 00:26:57.110
  • Since then we personally
  • 00:26:57.110 --> 00:26:58.080
  • bankrupted the planet.
  • 00:26:58.080 --> 00:26:59.020
  • You're welcome.
  • 00:26:59.020 --> 00:26:59.180
  • And then there was
  • 00:27:03.180 --> 00:27:05.130
  • no legislation protecting
  • 00:27:05.130 --> 00:27:06.210
  • the rights of victims.
  • 00:27:06.210 --> 00:27:08.180
  • There was, you know, there was
  • 00:27:08.180 --> 00:27:11.060
  • so much corruption, which has
  • 00:27:11.060 --> 00:27:12.180
  • become evident to the world now.
  • 00:27:12.180 --> 00:27:15.150
  • The church is so embryonic.
  • 00:27:15.150 --> 00:27:17.030
  • There are fewer than
  • 00:27:17.030 --> 00:27:17.260
  • 10.000 evangelical believers
  • 00:27:17.260 --> 00:27:19.070
  • in a nation of 12 million people
  • 00:27:19.070 --> 00:27:20.230
  • that there's not
  • 00:27:23.230 --> 00:27:24.110
  • a whole lot of support
  • 00:27:24.110 --> 00:27:25.080
  • from the church world.
  • 00:27:25.160 --> 00:27:28.160
  • And there was just challenge
  • 00:27:28.160 --> 00:27:29.140
  • after challenge after challenge.
  • 00:27:29.140 --> 00:27:31.190
  • the consultants in
  • 00:27:32.200 --> 00:27:35.020
  • and I had felt like when Moses
  • 00:27:35.020 --> 00:27:37.170
  • sent the 12 spies in
  • 00:27:37.170 --> 00:27:39.000
  • in Numbers 13.
  • 00:27:39.000 --> 00:27:40.230
  • That was the Word that God
  • 00:27:40.230 --> 00:27:41.100
  • had given.
  • 00:27:41.100 --> 00:27:41.250
  • "You're gonna start
  • 00:27:41.250 --> 00:27:42.130
  • in Thessaloniki."
  • 00:27:42.130 --> 00:27:44.150
  • And I sent them in, not to tell
  • 00:27:44.150 --> 00:27:46.030
  • me if we can start A-21
  • 00:27:46.030 --> 00:27:48.090
  • in Thessaloniki but how we
  • 00:27:48.090 --> 00:27:50.070
  • were going to do it.
  • 00:27:50.070 --> 00:27:52.010
  • When Moses sent the 12 spies
  • 00:27:52.010 --> 00:27:53.110
  • into the Promised Land
  • 00:27:53.110 --> 00:27:54.270
  • in Numbers 13,
  • 00:27:54.270 --> 00:27:55.220
  • he did not send them in to say,
  • 00:27:55.220 --> 00:27:57.120
  • "Is it possible for us
  • 00:27:57.120 --> 00:27:58.170
  • to do this?"
  • 00:27:58.170 --> 00:27:59.060
  • 'Cause God had already said it
  • 00:27:59.060 --> 00:28:00.200
  • was gonna be done.
  • 00:28:00.200 --> 00:28:01.220
  • So, if God said it,
  • 00:28:01.220 --> 00:28:03.050
  • it was already going to happen.
  • 00:28:03.050 --> 00:28:04.220
  • Well, I was in the airport,
  • 00:28:04.220 --> 00:28:07.030
  • in Frankfurt airport,
  • 00:28:07.030 --> 00:28:08.240
  • and I was in the lounge,
  • 00:28:08.240 --> 00:28:09.250
  • and I was going to get
  • 00:28:09.250 --> 00:28:10.210
  • the next flight to Thessaloniki.
  • 00:28:10.210 --> 00:28:12.070
  • I had flown over from Sydney.
  • 00:28:12.070 --> 00:28:14.150
  • And Nick called me 'cause
  • 00:28:14.150 --> 00:28:15.220
  • he'd been with the consultants
  • 00:28:15.220 --> 00:28:16.290
  • and it was 3 weeks in Greece.
  • 00:28:16.290 --> 00:28:19.050
  • So they had been going through
  • 00:28:19.050 --> 00:28:20.140
  • everything.
  • 00:28:20.140 --> 00:28:21.140
  • It was
  • 00:28:21.140 --> 00:28:21.290
  • the most comprehensive report
  • 00:28:21.290 --> 00:28:23.250
  • you could ever seen.
  • 00:28:23.250 --> 00:28:25.000
  • And I remember Nick called me
  • 00:28:25.000 --> 00:28:26.140
  • and he said to me, "Christine,
  • 00:28:26.140 --> 00:28:27.280
  • And that's always
  • 00:28:31.020 --> 00:28:31.170
  • not a good start.
  • 00:28:31.170 --> 00:28:32.170
  • "Christine, before you get
  • 00:28:34.040 --> 00:28:35.070
  • on this plane to come
  • 00:28:35.070 --> 00:28:36.080
  • to Thessaloniki, I want you
  • 00:28:36.080 --> 00:28:38.060
  • to remember that you are
  • 00:28:38.060 --> 00:28:39.180
  • a pastor, a Christian pastor."
  • 00:28:42.170 --> 00:28:45.170
  • Now, when Nick says that it's
  • 00:28:45.170 --> 00:28:46.190
  • always because the default
  • 00:28:46.190 --> 00:28:48.180
  • is that I'm a Greek, volatile,
  • 00:28:48.180 --> 00:28:50.290
  • crazy person, okay?
  • 00:28:50.290 --> 00:28:52.120
  • So that was a--he
  • 00:28:52.120 --> 00:28:53.180
  • was choosing that.
  • 00:28:53.180 --> 00:28:56.090
  • And he said, "I've got
  • 00:28:56.090 --> 00:28:58.020
  • the document here and it was
  • 00:28:58.020 --> 00:28:59.050
  • a 100 page report,
  • 00:28:59.050 --> 00:29:01.170
  • and that hundred page report
  • 00:29:01.170 --> 00:29:02.140
  • essentially said,
  • 00:29:02.140 --> 00:29:03.230
  • "Do not start in Greece
  • 00:29:03.230 --> 00:29:06.010
  • or eastern Europe
  • 00:29:06.010 --> 00:29:07.010
  • or Europe at all.
  • 00:29:07.010 --> 00:29:08.030
  • Start in southeast Asia.
  • 00:29:08.030 --> 00:29:09.220
  • You will--"
  • 00:29:09.220 --> 00:29:10.200
  • And then there is ten times
  • 00:29:10.200 --> 00:29:12.080
  • in this document the phrase,
  • 00:29:12.080 --> 00:29:15.010
  • "It will be impossible.
  • 00:29:15.010 --> 00:29:16.190
  • It will be impossible to start
  • 00:29:16.190 --> 00:29:17.250
  • an anti-trafficking organization
  • 00:29:17.250 --> 00:29:19.160
  • in Thessaloniki because,"
  • 00:29:19.160 --> 00:29:21.100
  • and he listed the reasons.
  • 00:29:21.100 --> 00:29:22.270
  • Because of the corruption,
  • 00:29:22.270 --> 00:29:23.260
  • because of the lack
  • 00:29:23.260 --> 00:29:25.170
  • of legislation protecting
  • 00:29:25.170 --> 00:29:26.160
  • the rights of victims,
  • 00:29:26.160 --> 00:29:27.120
  • because of the economic crisis.
  • 00:29:27.120 --> 00:29:29.220
  • It just went on and on and on.
  • 00:29:29.220 --> 00:29:31.190
  • And I remember as I'm sitting
  • 00:29:31.190 --> 00:29:32.240
  • in the airport at Frankfurt,
  • 00:29:32.240 --> 00:29:34.190
  • I had my own little Numbers 13
  • 00:29:34.190 --> 00:29:35.210
  • experience.
  • 00:29:35.210 --> 00:29:36.140
  • I stood up and I yelled
  • 00:29:36.140 --> 00:29:38.150
  • into the phone.
  • 00:29:38.150 --> 00:29:39.100
  • I felt like I was like Caleb
  • 00:29:39.100 --> 00:29:40.230
  • in Numbers 13.
  • 00:29:40.230 --> 00:29:42.130
  • I went, "Nick, you tell them
  • 00:29:42.230 --> 00:29:45.230
  • that God told us to start
  • 00:29:45.230 --> 00:29:47.010
  • in Thessaloniki
  • 00:29:47.010 --> 00:29:48.080
  • and if God said it,
  • 00:29:48.080 --> 00:29:49.140
  • we are well able to take
  • 00:29:49.140 --> 00:29:51.150
  • the land.
  • 00:29:51.150 --> 00:29:52.060
  • We are well able to be able
  • 00:29:52.060 --> 00:29:53.260
  • to go in."
  • 00:29:53.260 --> 00:29:54.240
  • Well, church, here we are
  • 00:29:54.240 --> 00:29:57.020
  • 8 years later, 14 offices
  • 00:29:57.150 --> 00:30:00.150
  • around the world, 12 countries,
  • 00:30:00.150 --> 00:30:02.230
  • over 150 traffickers in jail,
  • 00:30:02.230 --> 00:30:05.180
  • hundreds of girls, and women,
  • 00:30:05.180 --> 00:30:07.140
  • and children rescued
  • 00:30:07.140 --> 00:30:09.050
  • around the world!
  • 00:30:09.050 --> 00:30:11.040
  • What is impossible with man
  • 00:30:11.040 --> 00:30:12.290
  • is possible with God!
  • 00:30:12.290 --> 00:30:14.180
  • With God, all things
  • 00:30:14.180 --> 00:30:15.250
  • are possible and nothing
  • 00:30:15.250 --> 00:30:18.140
  • is impossible with God, nothing.
  • 00:30:19.030 --> 00:30:22.030
  • And only God would have known
  • 00:30:22.030 --> 00:30:23.010
  • 8 years later,
  • 00:30:23.010 --> 00:30:25.000
  • the largest humanitarian crisis
  • 00:30:25.000 --> 00:30:26.090
  • since World War II would hit.
  • 00:30:26.090 --> 00:30:28.040
  • Eighty-five percent
  • 00:30:28.040 --> 00:30:28.260
  • of all Syrian refugees,
  • 00:30:28.260 --> 00:30:30.090
  • eighty-five percent
  • 00:30:30.090 --> 00:30:31.060
  • of all of them would be crossing
  • 00:30:31.060 --> 00:30:32.130
  • the border fifteen minutes
  • 00:30:32.130 --> 00:30:33.250
  • from where our offices are.
  • 00:30:33.250 --> 00:30:36.230
  • And by God's grace
  • 00:30:36.230 --> 00:30:37.200
  • and because of our credibility,
  • 00:30:37.200 --> 00:30:38.200
  • we've set up 8 camps in Greece.
  • 00:30:38.200 --> 00:30:40.200
  • We work with UNHCR.
  • 00:30:40.200 --> 00:30:42.010
  • We work with the Red Cross.
  • 00:30:42.010 --> 00:30:44.210
  • In just 2 months, we've got
  • 00:30:44.210 --> 00:30:46.100
  • 265 walks worldwide
  • 00:30:46.100 --> 00:30:48.200
  • in 39 countries of people
  • 00:30:48.200 --> 00:30:50.270
  • walking for freedom covered
  • 00:30:50.270 --> 00:30:52.140
  • by media around the world.
  • 00:30:52.140 --> 00:30:54.040
  • Let me tell you something,
  • 00:30:54.040 --> 00:30:55.200
  • you know what?
  • 00:30:55.200 --> 00:30:56.130
  • You can be Mary
  • 00:30:56.130 --> 00:30:58.080
  • and an angel of the Lord
  • 00:30:58.080 --> 00:30:59.110
  • says that the Holy Spirit
  • 00:30:59.110 --> 00:31:00.240
  • will overshadow you,
  • 00:31:00.240 --> 00:31:02.030
  • and God will make possible
  • 00:31:02.030 --> 00:31:03.060
  • what is impossible with man.
  • 00:31:03.060 --> 00:31:04.210
  • You can be a chick that was left
  • 00:31:04.210 --> 00:31:06.250
  • unnamed and unwanted
  • 00:31:06.250 --> 00:31:07.290
  • in Crown Street
  • 00:31:07.290 --> 00:31:08.230
  • Women's Hospital
  • 00:31:08.230 --> 00:31:09.170
  • and God will just say,
  • 00:31:09.170 --> 00:31:10.210
  • "I might just raise up
  • 00:31:10.210 --> 00:31:11.220
  • a global anti-trafficking
  • 00:31:11.220 --> 00:31:12.270
  • organization.
  • 00:31:12.270 --> 00:31:14.050
  • You can reach multitudes."
  • 00:31:14.050 --> 00:31:15.130
  • I don't know who you are and I
  • 00:31:15.130 --> 00:31:17.000
  • don't know what God's called you
  • 00:31:17.000 --> 00:31:18.040
  • to do, but all I'm saying to you
  • 00:31:18.040 --> 00:31:19.220
  • is impossible
  • 00:31:19.220 --> 00:31:20.220
  • is where God starts,
  • 00:31:20.220 --> 00:31:21.290
  • and miracles are what God does.
  • 00:31:21.290 --> 00:31:24.190
  • It's the currency of heaven.
  • 00:31:24.190 --> 00:31:26.020
  • It's the currency of heaven.
  • 00:31:26.210 --> 00:31:29.210
  • And so, Mary says,
  • 00:31:33.020 --> 00:31:36.000
  • "You know what?
  • 00:31:36.000 --> 00:31:37.130
  • This is a God-sized job."
  • 00:31:37.130 --> 00:31:39.060
  • And I wonder.
  • 00:31:39.060 --> 00:31:41.220
  • I love what she says here.
  • 00:31:43.230 --> 00:31:44.260
  • "For no word from God
  • 00:31:44.260 --> 00:31:47.190
  • will ever fail."
  • 00:31:47.190 --> 00:31:50.070
  • No Word from God will ever fail.
  • 00:31:50.070 --> 00:31:52.140
  • In a day and an age in which we
  • 00:31:52.140 --> 00:31:54.130
  • live where people are trying
  • 00:31:54.130 --> 00:31:56.000
  • to dilute the Word of God,
  • 00:31:56.000 --> 00:31:57.170
  • compromise the Word of God,
  • 00:31:57.170 --> 00:32:00.140
  • I need you to know
  • 00:32:00.140 --> 00:32:02.040
  • that the grass withers,
  • 00:32:02.040 --> 00:32:03.170
  • the flower fades,
  • 00:32:03.170 --> 00:32:05.070
  • but it's the Word of the Lord
  • 00:32:05.070 --> 00:32:08.070
  • that remains forever.
  • 00:32:08.070 --> 00:32:10.280
  • You who know me know that I am
  • 00:32:10.280 --> 00:32:12.030
  • a Word girl to the T.
  • 00:32:12.030 --> 00:32:14.240
  • And if any word you
  • 00:32:14.240 --> 00:32:15.280
  • have ever gotten is contrary
  • 00:32:16.070 --> 00:32:19.070
  • to Scripture,
  • 00:32:19.070 --> 00:32:19.270
  • then it's not a word from God.
  • 00:32:19.270 --> 00:32:21.240
  • God never contradicts himself
  • 00:32:21.240 --> 00:32:23.240
  • and God will never be contrary
  • 00:32:23.240 --> 00:32:24.250
  • to Scripture.
  • 00:32:24.250 --> 00:32:25.180
  • But God does speak today.
  • 00:32:25.180 --> 00:32:27.130
  • There is no doubt about that.
  • 00:32:27.130 --> 00:32:29.000
  • God still speaks today.
  • 00:32:29.000 --> 00:32:30.140
  • And here I've got a folder.
  • 00:32:30.140 --> 00:32:31.250
  • I've been at Hillsong 28 years.
  • 00:32:31.250 --> 00:32:34.230
  • I got married there,
  • 00:32:34.230 --> 00:32:35.160
  • dedicated my children there.
  • 00:32:35.160 --> 00:32:36.260
  • My husband and I
  • 00:32:36.260 --> 00:32:37.150
  • are still part of the house.
  • 00:32:37.170 --> 00:32:40.170
  • My daughter's a part
  • 00:32:40.170 --> 00:32:42.080
  • of the house.
  • 00:32:42.080 --> 00:32:44.190
  • And all of my spiritual
  • 00:32:44.190 --> 00:32:46.170
  • formation has happened
  • 00:32:46.170 --> 00:32:48.000
  • out of this house.
  • 00:32:48.000 --> 00:32:49.100
  • This conference represents that.
  • 00:32:49.100 --> 00:32:52.010
  • All of what I'm doing
  • 00:32:52.010 --> 00:32:52.250
  • around the world today
  • 00:32:52.250 --> 00:32:54.060
  • through A-21, preaching,
  • 00:32:54.060 --> 00:32:55.140
  • teaching,
  • 00:32:55.140 --> 00:32:56.000
  • all of the different initiatives
  • 00:32:56.000 --> 00:32:57.020
  • we've got, I birthed
  • 00:32:57.020 --> 00:32:58.120
  • in this soil and anchored
  • 00:32:58.120 --> 00:33:00.190
  • still to this day in this soil.
  • 00:33:00.190 --> 00:33:02.250
  • Always have been,
  • 00:33:02.250 --> 00:33:03.180
  • everything that I do.
  • 00:33:03.180 --> 00:33:06.050
  • And 20 years ago,
  • 00:33:06.050 --> 00:33:08.280
  • we used to have these nights
  • 00:33:08.280 --> 00:33:10.220
  • over those 28 years,
  • 00:33:10.220 --> 00:33:11.180
  • they were called
  • 00:33:11.180 --> 00:33:12.030
  • ministry nights.
  • 00:33:12.030 --> 00:33:14.000
  • And all these here represent
  • 00:33:14.000 --> 00:33:15.280
  • on each different CD,
  • 00:33:15.280 --> 00:33:17.160
  • there's just packets, you know,
  • 00:33:17.160 --> 00:33:19.280
  • on some of these CDs
  • 00:33:19.280 --> 00:33:21.020
  • are 8, 9, and 10 Words.
  • 00:33:21.020 --> 00:33:23.260
  • They would be prophetic Words
  • 00:33:23.260 --> 00:33:24.240
  • and there's people in this room
  • 00:33:24.240 --> 00:33:25.270
  • that are part
  • 00:33:25.270 --> 00:33:26.150
  • of our Hillsong team
  • 00:33:26.150 --> 00:33:27.090
  • that would give those
  • 00:33:27.090 --> 00:33:28.010
  • at different nights.
  • 00:33:28.010 --> 00:33:30.150
  • 'Cause she said--Mary said,
  • 00:33:30.150 --> 00:33:31.210
  • "Let it be to me
  • 00:33:31.210 --> 00:33:32.100
  • according to your Word."
  • 00:33:32.100 --> 00:33:33.290
  • See, one Word from God
  • 00:33:33.290 --> 00:33:34.250
  • can keep you on track.
  • 00:33:34.250 --> 00:33:36.220
  • And 20 years ago, of
  • 00:33:36.220 --> 00:33:37.210
  • all the words that I've gotten,
  • 00:33:37.210 --> 00:33:39.130
  • and I'm one of those people
  • 00:33:39.130 --> 00:33:40.110
  • that listens to them regularly,
  • 00:33:40.110 --> 00:33:42.160
  • but one Word that I
  • 00:33:42.160 --> 00:33:43.110
  • have listened to,
  • 00:33:43.110 --> 00:33:44.110
  • I'm probably not exaggerating
  • 00:33:44.110 --> 00:33:45.200
  • at all if I say 500 times,
  • 00:33:45.200 --> 00:33:47.170
  • it would be more.
  • 00:33:47.170 --> 00:33:49.140
  • The Word that has kept me
  • 00:33:49.140 --> 00:33:50.240
  • on track for 20 years
  • 00:33:50.240 --> 00:33:52.000
  • since I got it, when everything
  • 00:33:52.090 --> 00:33:55.090
  • in me was challenged,
  • 00:33:55.090 --> 00:33:58.070
  • when everything in me
  • 00:33:58.070 --> 00:33:59.060
  • just thought I want to give up,
  • 00:33:59.060 --> 00:34:01.020
  • when everything in me wanted
  • 00:34:01.020 --> 00:34:01.290
  • to walk away, when everything
  • 00:34:01.290 --> 00:34:03.000
  • in me wanted to disconnect
  • 00:34:03.000 --> 00:34:04.010
  • as just being part of life,
  • 00:34:04.010 --> 00:34:06.250
  • one Word.
  • 00:34:06.250 --> 00:34:08.080
  • Mary said, "Let it be to me
  • 00:34:08.080 --> 00:34:09.050
  • - Christine: When people would
  • 00:34:15.070 --> 00:34:15.260
  • have overlooked them, people
  • 00:34:15.260 --> 00:34:17.040
  • would have pushed them aside,
  • 00:34:17.040 --> 00:34:18.140
  • people would have said,
  • 00:34:18.140 --> 00:34:19.150
  • "No way, it's not possible."
  • 00:34:19.150 --> 00:34:21.190
  • They hung on to a Word
  • 00:34:21.190 --> 00:34:23.170
  • and they hung on to the Word
  • 00:34:23.170 --> 00:34:25.150
  • - Christine: The Word that has
  • 00:34:35.160 --> 00:34:36.050
  • kept me on track for 20 years
  • 00:34:36.050 --> 00:34:37.290
  • since I got it, Mary said,
  • 00:34:37.290 --> 00:34:39.240
  • "Let it be to me according
  • 00:34:39.240 --> 00:34:40.210
  • to your Word."
  • 00:34:40.210 --> 00:34:43.020
  • And so, it's nice to see it
  • 00:34:43.020 --> 00:34:45.160
  • because 20 years ago,
  • 00:34:45.160 --> 00:34:47.060
  • if you've got those pictures,
  • 00:34:47.060 --> 00:34:48.190
  • 20 odd years ago, you know,
  • 00:34:48.190 --> 00:34:50.110
  • there was potential
  • 00:34:50.110 --> 00:34:51.030
  • for that girl.
  • 00:34:51.030 --> 00:34:51.280
  • Power ministry school.
  • 00:34:51.280 --> 00:34:52.280
  • Go for it.
  • 00:34:52.280 --> 00:34:54.240
  • And I know you
  • 00:34:54.240 --> 00:34:55.090
  • can't even recognize that,
  • 00:34:55.090 --> 00:34:57.120
  • so you can take them off
  • 00:34:57.120 --> 00:34:58.040
  • 'cause it's a bit daunting,
  • 00:34:58.040 --> 00:34:59.070
  • but that was there.
  • 00:34:59.070 --> 00:35:02.020
  • You couldn't have picked that
  • 00:35:02.020 --> 00:35:03.170
  • 20 years ago.
  • 00:35:03.170 --> 00:35:04.140
  • If you had have seen me
  • 00:35:04.140 --> 00:35:05.120
  • 20 years ago,
  • 00:35:05.120 --> 00:35:06.080
  • you wouldn't have picked it.
  • 00:35:06.080 --> 00:35:07.120
  • But the key in all of that was,
  • 00:35:07.120 --> 00:35:09.140
  • you know what?
  • 00:35:09.140 --> 00:35:10.100
  • God let it be to me
  • 00:35:10.100 --> 00:35:11.120
  • according to your Word.
  • 00:35:11.120 --> 00:35:12.230
  • Stay planted.
  • 00:35:12.230 --> 00:35:13.290
  • Stay committed.
  • 00:35:13.290 --> 00:35:15.060
  • Stay faithful.
  • 00:35:15.060 --> 00:35:16.100
  • Stay loyal.
  • 00:35:16.100 --> 00:35:17.150
  • The enemy will come and take you
  • 00:35:17.150 --> 00:35:19.010
  • off track, but if you,
  • 00:35:19.010 --> 00:35:20.190
  • above all else,
  • 00:35:20.190 --> 00:35:21.210
  • make a decision that you
  • 00:35:21.210 --> 00:35:23.000
  • are going to stay planted,
  • 00:35:23.000 --> 00:35:25.190
  • that you are gonna say,
  • 00:35:25.190 --> 00:35:26.220
  • "God, you gave me that Word.
  • 00:35:26.220 --> 00:35:28.100
  • I am not disconnecting.
  • 00:35:28.100 --> 00:35:30.050
  • I'm not gonna try to make this
  • 00:35:30.050 --> 00:35:31.150
  • happen on my own.
  • 00:35:31.150 --> 00:35:33.020
  • I will look foolish
  • 00:35:33.020 --> 00:35:34.160
  • to the world.
  • 00:35:34.160 --> 00:35:35.170
  • I am prepared to do whatever it
  • 00:35:35.170 --> 00:35:37.120
  • takes to see this come
  • 00:35:37.120 --> 00:35:39.100
  • to fruition."
  • 00:35:39.100 --> 00:35:40.130
  • Some of you, you need to take
  • 00:35:40.130 --> 00:35:41.290
  • some words off the shelf
  • 00:35:41.290 --> 00:35:43.240
  • and you need to begin
  • 00:35:43.240 --> 00:35:44.240
  • to believe God again.
  • 00:35:44.240 --> 00:35:46.080
  • You need to believe to see God,
  • 00:35:46.080 --> 00:35:48.130
  • to activate something
  • 00:35:48.130 --> 00:35:49.170
  • in your life again.
  • 00:35:49.170 --> 00:35:51.040
  • You need to stop thinking
  • 00:35:51.040 --> 00:35:52.110
  • it's impossible because you
  • 00:35:52.110 --> 00:35:53.190
  • Some of you have deviated
  • 00:35:55.210 --> 00:35:57.010
  • and got off course 'cause you
  • 00:35:57.010 --> 00:35:58.090
  • said, "You know what?
  • 00:35:58.090 --> 00:35:59.050
  • keep trying to do it this way,
  • 00:36:01.110 --> 00:36:03.150
  • if I keep trying to wait
  • 00:36:03.150 --> 00:36:04.250
  • for God."
  • 00:36:04.250 --> 00:36:05.150
  • And God's saying,
  • 00:36:05.150 --> 00:36:06.080
  • "You know what?
  • 00:36:06.080 --> 00:36:07.000
  • A little pregnant teenage girl,
  • 00:36:07.000 --> 00:36:08.220
  • she looked really foolish when
  • 00:36:08.220 --> 00:36:10.070
  • she said, 'I was carrying God.'"
  • 00:36:10.070 --> 00:36:12.030
  • For 20 years, I would come
  • 00:36:12.030 --> 00:36:13.110
  • to these conferences
  • 00:36:13.110 --> 00:36:14.160
  • and it looked ridiculous.
  • 00:36:14.160 --> 00:36:16.090
  • Who would have ever thought
  • 00:36:16.090 --> 00:36:17.140
  • that somebody like me, that God
  • 00:36:17.140 --> 00:36:19.140
  • would raise up to fulfill
  • 00:36:19.140 --> 00:36:21.000
  • that Word given
  • 00:36:21.000 --> 00:36:22.020
  • 20 years ago?
  • 00:36:22.020 --> 00:36:23.060
  • But let me tell you something,
  • 00:36:23.060 --> 00:36:24.190
  • no Word from God
  • 00:36:24.190 --> 00:36:26.180
  • or the Word of God
  • 00:36:26.180 --> 00:36:28.070
  • God's Word will always,
  • 00:36:30.120 --> 00:36:31.250
  • always, always prevail.
  • 00:36:31.250 --> 00:36:34.120
  • And just as I end,
  • 00:36:34.120 --> 00:36:35.080
  • look at this in the NET Bible.
  • 00:36:37.110 --> 00:36:39.090
  • This version in verse 38,
  • 00:36:39.090 --> 00:36:40.270
  • Mary said, "Yes, I am
  • 00:36:40.270 --> 00:36:42.220
  • a servant of the Lord.
  • 00:36:42.220 --> 00:36:43.270
  • Let this happen to me
  • 00:36:43.270 --> 00:36:45.090
  • according to your Word."
  • 00:36:45.090 --> 00:36:46.260
  • Some of you, you've gotten
  • 00:36:46.260 --> 00:36:48.170
  • prophetic Words and you want
  • 00:36:48.170 --> 00:36:49.240
  • to blog about them,
  • 00:36:49.240 --> 00:36:50.130
  • tweet about them,
  • 00:36:50.130 --> 00:36:51.050
  • tell everyone about them.
  • 00:36:51.050 --> 00:36:52.200
  • You want to do anything
  • 00:36:52.200 --> 00:36:54.040
  • but go through the process
  • 00:36:54.040 --> 00:36:55.260
  • And what happens is she
  • 00:36:57.270 --> 00:36:59.110
  • conceived but it was
  • 00:36:59.110 --> 00:37:00.260
  • still 9 months
  • 00:37:00.260 --> 00:37:01.270
  • until it was birthed.
  • 00:37:01.270 --> 00:37:03.070
  • I might have got that Word
  • 00:37:03.070 --> 00:37:04.070
  • 20 years ago.
  • 00:37:04.070 --> 00:37:05.080
  • It took 20 years
  • 00:37:05.080 --> 00:37:06.160
  • for it to come to pass.
  • 00:37:06.160 --> 00:37:08.060
  • You've gotta not ever give up
  • 00:37:08.060 --> 00:37:10.230
  • on the promise that God
  • 00:37:10.230 --> 00:37:12.030
  • has put on the inside of you
  • 00:37:12.030 --> 00:37:14.000
  • no matter how ridiculous
  • 00:37:14.000 --> 00:37:15.100
  • it looks.
  • 00:37:15.100 --> 00:37:16.000
  • But God needs you to say yes.
  • 00:37:16.000 --> 00:37:18.250
  • God needs you to be prepared
  • 00:37:18.250 --> 00:37:20.260
  • to look ridiculous.
  • 00:37:20.260 --> 00:37:22.260
  • The Bible is full of people
  • 00:37:22.260 --> 00:37:24.250
  • from Genesis to Revelation
  • 00:37:24.250 --> 00:37:27.070
  • who said yes to God
  • 00:37:27.070 --> 00:37:29.010
  • and who were prepared
  • 00:37:29.010 --> 00:37:30.020
  • to look foolish when people
  • 00:37:30.020 --> 00:37:32.160
  • would have overlooked them,
  • 00:37:32.160 --> 00:37:33.260
  • people would have pushed them
  • 00:37:33.260 --> 00:37:34.270
  • aside, people would have said,

  • "No way.

  • It's not possible."
  • 00:37:37.060 --> 00:37:38.150
  • They hung on to a Word,
  • 00:37:38.150 --> 00:37:40.120
  • and they hung on to the Word,
  • 00:37:40.120 --> 00:37:42.130
  • and it came to pass.
  • 00:37:42.130 --> 00:37:44.100
  • Noah looked foolish building
