  • Creflo: Number one reason thatpeople are sick today is not
  • 00:01:54.561 --> 00:01:57.363
  • 'cause they eat a hamburger.
  • 00:01:57.397 --> 00:01:59.432
  • It's because they'restressed out.
  • 00:01:59.465 --> 00:02:02.168
  • But you don't knowhow to let stuff go.
  • 00:02:02.202 --> 00:02:05.138
  • "Yeah, but y'all justdon't understand."
  • 00:02:05.171 --> 00:02:07.106
  • No, you don't understand thatyou have access to a God who
  • 00:02:07.140 --> 00:02:11.911
  • wants to remove your burdensand destroy your yokes.
  • 00:02:11.945 --> 00:02:16.983
  • But he can't do it if you keepthat opportunity away from him
  • 00:02:17.016 --> 00:02:20.954
  • by holding on to it.
  • 00:02:20.987 --> 00:02:23.389
  • He is saying, "Giveme an opportunity.
  • 00:02:23.423 --> 00:02:25.625
  • Lean on me, rely on me,cast this over on me.
  • 00:02:25.658 --> 00:02:29.996
  • I see where you're weakbut that's when I'm strong.
  • 00:02:30.029 --> 00:02:33.499
  • I see what you're going through,but that's where my grace can be
  • 00:02:33.533 --> 00:02:36.202
  • sufficient, try me," the Lordsays, "and you will love it
  • 00:02:36.236 --> 00:02:40.039
  • once you see what I can do."
  • 00:02:40.073 --> 00:02:42.742
  • 'Cause God's already--God'salready got provisions for the
  • 00:02:42.775 --> 00:02:45.678
  • stuff you holdin' on to.
  • 00:02:45.712 --> 00:02:48.214
  • Let that stuff go, praise God.
  • 00:02:48.248 --> 00:02:50.450
  • Go get you a blow pop or makea freezer cup and say, "God, I
  • 00:02:50.483 --> 00:02:52.719
  • gotta trust you."
  • 00:02:52.752 --> 00:02:55.555
  • I mean, listen, some of us don'thave no choice but to trust God.
  • 00:02:55.588 --> 00:03:00.126
  • I think the biggest enemywe have in life are options.
  • 00:03:00.159 --> 00:03:04.497
  • You think you have all theseoptions and you think, "Well,
  • 00:03:04.530 --> 00:03:06.833
  • I'ma choose option A, it don'twork, option B, it don't work,
  • 00:03:06.866 --> 00:03:09.602
  • option C, it don't work.
  • 00:03:09.636 --> 00:03:11.871
  • Well, then, at leastthere's still God."
  • 00:03:11.904 --> 00:03:14.307
  • No, he should have been first.
  • 00:03:14.340 --> 00:03:17.777
  • And I'm trying to get youto put him in first place.
  • 00:03:17.810 --> 00:03:20.780
  • I'm trying to get you to--youdon't know it until you know it.
  • 00:03:20.813 --> 00:03:25.885
  • So, ooh, this is weird phrase,it might not be all the way true
  • 00:03:25.918 --> 00:03:33.393
  • but I think I need to say it andhopefully you'll understand what
  • 00:03:33.426 --> 00:03:39.732
  • I'm saying.
  • 00:03:39.766 --> 00:03:42.869
  • Do it afraid.
  • 00:03:42.902 --> 00:03:46.606
  • Let me explain myself.
  • 00:03:52.111 --> 00:03:54.781
  • Okay, so, you're not this giantconfident person, and you know
  • 00:03:54.814 --> 00:03:58.584
  • you're--you know God's gonnahandle it a lot better than you
  • 00:03:58.618 --> 00:04:02.955
  • can, but you still got alittle fear about doing it.
  • 00:04:02.989 --> 00:04:08.995
  • Do it even in thepresence of fear.
  • 00:04:09.028 --> 00:04:14.567
  • Do it anyhow.
  • 00:04:14.600 --> 00:04:17.670
  • Oh, y'all don't hearwhat I'm saying.
  • 00:04:17.704 --> 00:04:20.239
  • Do it anyhow, don't letfear stop your action.
  • 00:04:20.273 --> 00:04:23.276
  • Don't let fear stop your belief.
  • 00:04:23.309 --> 00:04:26.713
  • Yeah, the fear might still bethere but I just believe if
  • 00:04:26.746 --> 00:04:29.382
  • you'll just rely on him, nowyou've got the grace of God to
  • 00:04:29.415 --> 00:04:32.852
  • help you even wherethe fear is concerned.
  • 00:04:32.885 --> 00:04:36.322
  • Oh, y'all don't understandwhat I'm saying.
  • 00:04:36.356 --> 00:04:39.258
  • I can't tell you the manythings that I've done afraid.
  • 00:04:39.292 --> 00:04:42.662
  • And that sounds weird, it soundslike it totally contradicts
  • 00:04:42.695 --> 00:04:44.931
  • our doctrine.
  • 00:04:44.964 --> 00:04:47.800
  • But, you know, I've stepped outon--I remember when I was in
  • 00:04:47.834 --> 00:04:51.170
  • Uganda years ago and, whatabout 100.000 people were there.
  • 00:04:51.204 --> 00:04:55.942
  • I ain't ever preached in frontof 100.000 people before.
  • 00:04:55.975 --> 00:04:58.945
  • So when I came to--into thestadium, it looked like a
  • 00:04:58.978 --> 00:05:01.447
  • Falcons game and I--they had alittle window and I looked out
  • 00:05:01.481 --> 00:05:04.884
  • there and I'm like, "Ooh,there's a lot of people."
  • 00:05:04.917 --> 00:05:07.687
  • I said, "Was there, like, isthere a concert or something
  • 00:05:07.720 --> 00:05:10.623
  • gonna be goin' onbefore I go out?"
  • 00:05:10.656 --> 00:05:13.459
  • And then they said, "Oh, thepresident's family just
  • 00:05:13.493 --> 00:05:15.194
  • came in."
  • 00:05:15.228 --> 00:05:17.029
  • And I'm like, "What's going on?"
  • 00:05:17.063 --> 00:05:18.631
  • And they looked at me, they say,"Well, everybody's here to see
  • 00:05:18.664 --> 00:05:20.433
  • you," and I'm, like, "Ohh,I gotta go to the bathroom."
  • 00:05:20.466 --> 00:05:23.035
  • I had to go to the bathroom.
  • 00:05:26.305 --> 00:05:30.042
  • Well, what was I supposed to do?
  • 00:05:30.076 --> 00:05:32.912
  • Because I was a little afraid,was I supposed to just not do
  • 00:05:32.945 --> 00:05:36.082
  • it, just not do it?
  • 00:05:36.115 --> 00:05:40.553
  • And I was the first or secondblack to address--I think I was
  • 00:05:40.586 --> 00:05:45.091
  • the first--the first blackto address parliament.
  • 00:05:45.124 --> 00:05:50.062
  • Afraid, are you kidding me?
  • 00:05:50.096 --> 00:05:53.833
  • I am a preacher, you understand?
  • 00:05:53.866 --> 00:05:58.738
  • But you have to do it afraid.
  • 00:05:58.771 --> 00:06:02.575
  • Cancer strikes my bodyand I'm making decisions.
  • 00:06:02.608 --> 00:06:06.746
  • As the Holy Spirit is helpingme, I'm making decisions.
  • 00:06:06.779 --> 00:06:09.982
  • I am healed.
  • 00:06:10.016 --> 00:06:12.585
  • And when he just told me whatwas going on--I'm healed.
  • 00:06:12.618 --> 00:06:15.288
  • I had to do it afraid.
  • 00:06:15.321 --> 00:06:17.623
  • But I notice each time I steppedout, when fear was presence, I
  • 00:06:17.657 --> 00:06:20.493
  • stepped out of fearand I stepped in faith.
  • 00:06:20.526 --> 00:06:26.532
  • Oh, y'all don't hearwhat I'm saying.
  • 00:06:26.566 --> 00:06:29.802
  • I think it'll be all right ifwe said this, but turn to your
  • 00:06:29.836 --> 00:06:32.038
  • neighbor and say,"Do it afraid."
  • 00:06:32.071 --> 00:06:37.009
  • But do it.
  • 00:06:37.043 --> 00:06:40.213
  • Make your mind up, I am notgonna hold on to this care.
  • 00:06:40.246 --> 00:06:42.982
  • He told me to cast his care.
  • 00:06:43.015 --> 00:06:45.117
  • I'm losing sleep 'causeI'm holding on to it.
  • 00:06:45.151 --> 00:06:47.253
  • I'm in a bad mood 'causeI'm holding on to it.
  • 00:06:47.286 --> 00:06:49.388
  • I'm not like I normally am'cause I'm holding on to it.
  • 00:06:49.422 --> 00:06:51.290
  • I'm tired of holding on to this.
  • 00:06:51.324 --> 00:06:52.692
  • Here, God, you've got it,it's yours.
  • 00:06:52.725 --> 00:06:54.961
  • I'm gonna have a blow pop.
  • 00:06:54.994 --> 00:06:56.596
  • I'm getting readyto go see a movie.
  • 00:06:56.629 --> 00:06:58.431
  • I'm gonna see endgame or whatever.
  • 00:06:58.464 --> 00:07:00.266
  • I'm tired of this.
  • 00:07:00.299 --> 00:07:02.068
  • You know how to do this.
  • 00:07:02.101 --> 00:07:04.070
  • I'm not leaning on you.
  • 00:07:04.103 --> 00:07:05.771
  • If you drop me, it'syour fault I fall.
  • 00:07:05.805 --> 00:07:08.574
  • But God said, "If you'll come tome in faith I'll never drop you,
  • 00:07:08.608 --> 00:07:10.977
  • I'll never leave you,I'll never forsake you.
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:13.479
  • I'm ready to show you how big Iam and how big I can be in
  • 00:07:13.513 --> 00:07:17.416
  • your life."
  • 00:07:17.450 --> 00:07:20.620
  • So, let's dig a littledeeper with this.
  • 00:07:27.493 --> 00:07:34.600
  • Under the old covenant itwas always work, then rest.
  • 00:07:34.634 --> 00:07:41.574
  • Under the new covenant or grace,it starts with God's rest, then
  • 00:07:41.607 --> 00:07:46.212
  • your work will beempowered out of your rest.
  • 00:07:46.245 --> 00:07:51.317
  • It starts with God's restand then what you do will be
  • 00:07:51.350 --> 00:07:54.987
  • empowered out of rest.
  • 00:07:55.021 --> 00:07:58.424
  • Do you know there's anempowerment, an anointing, an
  • 00:07:58.457 --> 00:08:02.695
  • equipping, that comes from aChristian being in the most
  • 00:08:02.728 --> 00:08:06.532
  • powerful position you can be in?
  • 00:08:06.566 --> 00:08:09.602
  • Do you know the most powerfulposition you can be in is the
  • 00:08:09.635 --> 00:08:12.204
  • place of rest?
  • 00:08:12.238 --> 00:08:15.107
  • And then your--whatever youbegin to do out of rest is
  • 00:08:15.141 --> 00:08:16.909
  • empowered, praise God.
  • 00:08:16.943 --> 00:08:20.546
  • Are you all seeing?
  • 00:08:20.580 --> 00:08:22.181
  • It's empowered becauseyou're at rest.
  • 00:08:22.214 --> 00:08:23.583
  • While everybody else isstressing out and worried, your
  • 00:08:23.616 --> 00:08:25.451
  • stuff seems to accomplishgreatness because you're not
  • 00:08:25.484 --> 00:08:30.356
  • doing it out of worry, you'redoing it out of rest and then
  • 00:08:30.389 --> 00:08:35.027
  • people notice folks who at rest,they notice there's something
  • 00:08:35.061 --> 00:08:37.196
  • about you.
  • 00:08:37.229 --> 00:08:38.798
  • Why is it that you're notworried about this and why
  • 00:08:38.831 --> 00:08:40.466
  • is it that you're confident?
  • 00:08:40.499 --> 00:08:42.401
  • Why is it that everybody else isbothered but you don't seem to
  • 00:08:42.435 --> 00:08:44.370
  • be that way because you'reempowered out of rest.
  • 00:08:44.403 --> 00:08:47.840
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:08:47.873 --> 00:08:49.442
  • You're empowered--ear what I'msaying, see what I'm saying.
  • 00:08:49.475 --> 00:08:51.310
  • You're empowered out of rest.
  • 00:08:51.344 --> 00:08:53.579
  • That's a place of empowermentwhen you're resting.
  • 00:08:53.613 --> 00:08:56.048
  • Stress is not a place whereyou can be empowered to be
  • 00:08:56.082 --> 00:08:59.285
  • successful, but rest is a placewhere you can be empowered
  • 00:08:59.318 --> 00:09:02.221
  • to be successful.
  • 00:09:02.254 --> 00:09:04.757
  • When you look at successfulpeople, praise God, those who
  • 00:09:04.790 --> 00:09:07.493
  • are in Christ Jesus, you'llnotice that they are empowered
  • 00:09:07.526 --> 00:09:11.063
  • to do what they do.
  • 00:09:11.097 --> 00:09:13.666
  • Jesus never got in ahurry about nothing.
  • 00:09:13.699 --> 00:09:17.336
  • But out of his rest, a man whowas dead for a few days was
  • 00:09:17.370 --> 00:09:20.773
  • raised from the dead because outof his rest came an empowerment.
  • 00:09:20.806 --> 00:09:27.146
  • And I believe today that Godwants to bring empowerment in
  • 00:09:27.179 --> 00:09:31.283
  • your life.
  • 00:09:31.317 --> 00:09:33.953
  • He wants you to be empoweredto have success, but it's
  • 00:09:33.986 --> 00:09:37.023
  • not--listen.
  • 00:09:37.056 --> 00:09:39.859
  • There's something about seeingempowerment come out of rest.
  • 00:09:39.892 --> 00:09:42.628
  • Oh, my motivation now.
  • 00:09:42.662 --> 00:09:44.397
  • Hopefully, I'm giving yousomething that you're motivated
  • 00:09:44.430 --> 00:09:46.565
  • to enter into that rest becauseout of rest, empowerment comes.
  • 00:09:46.599 --> 00:09:49.735
  • Out of rest, wisdom comes.
  • 00:09:49.769 --> 00:09:52.471
  • Out of rest, you begin to seegrace and favor operate in your
  • 00:09:52.505 --> 00:09:56.042
  • life, out of rest.
  • 00:09:56.075 --> 00:09:59.478
  • Turn to your neighborand say, "No more worry."
  • 00:09:59.512 --> 00:10:04.383
  • Turn the other side and say,"I do what I do out of rest."
  • 00:10:04.417 --> 00:10:10.056
  • And now I'mempowered to prosper.
  • 00:10:10.089 --> 00:10:12.892
  • I'm empowered to have success,I'm empowered to do all these
  • 00:10:12.925 --> 00:10:15.561
  • things but it'sborn out of rest.
  • 00:10:15.594 --> 00:10:20.566
  • Ooh, it's born out of rest.
  • 00:10:20.599 --> 00:10:26.806
  • Lift your hands up, I'm gonnadeclare something over you.
  • 00:10:29.942 --> 00:10:32.611
  • I declare a spirit ofease over you right now.
  • 00:10:32.645 --> 00:10:36.515
  • I declare an anointing of easeover you right now, that you
  • 00:10:36.549 --> 00:10:40.152
  • enter into the rest andempowerment be upon you now, in
  • 00:10:40.186 --> 00:10:45.658
  • Jesus' name, amen, amen.
  • 00:10:45.691 --> 00:10:51.697
  • Now, all right, let'sget to move here.
  • 00:10:51.731 --> 00:10:54.967
  • Philippians chapter 4, verse6 through 7 in the New Living
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:57.903
  • Translation, Philippians chapter4, verse 6 through 7 in the
  • 00:10:57.937 --> 00:11:01.640
  • New Living Translation.
  • 00:11:01.674 --> 00:11:04.643
  • And then I'm gonna go to 2Corinthians chapter 4:16-18 in
  • 00:11:04.677 --> 00:11:08.114
  • The Message translation.
  • 00:11:08.147 --> 00:11:10.382
  • Now watch this, these twoScriptures real quick.
  • 00:11:10.416 --> 00:11:12.451
  • Now let the Word ofGod speak to you.
  • 00:11:12.485 --> 00:11:14.854
  • He says: "Don't worryabout anything."
  • 00:11:14.887 --> 00:11:16.655
  • There it is again.
  • 00:11:16.689 --> 00:11:18.991
  • I mean, why do wekeep seeing this?
  • 00:11:19.024 --> 00:11:20.593
  • "Don't worry about," obviously,worrying can stop a lot of
  • 00:11:20.626 --> 00:11:23.729
  • stuff, man, or hinders a lot ofstuff or stops us from being at
  • 00:11:23.763 --> 00:11:27.767
  • our best.
  • 00:11:27.800 --> 00:11:30.069
  • "Don't worry about anything;instead of worrying, pray about
  • 00:11:30.102 --> 00:11:33.038
  • everything," I like that.
  • 00:11:33.072 --> 00:11:35.207
  • Don't worry about anything;pray about everything.
  • 00:11:35.241 --> 00:11:38.344
  • Oh, I like that.
  • 00:11:38.377 --> 00:11:40.146
  • "Don't," turn to your neighborand say, "Don't worry about
  • 00:11:40.179 --> 00:11:41.647
  • anything; prayabout everything."
  • 00:11:41.680 --> 00:11:44.917
  • That's awesome,that's awesome.
  • 00:11:44.950 --> 00:11:47.286
  • It's almost likereplacement theory.
  • 00:11:47.319 --> 00:11:51.257
  • Instead of worrying,I'm gonna be praying.
  • 00:11:51.290 --> 00:11:53.192
  • So every time you're temptedto worry, pray, all right?
  • 00:11:53.225 --> 00:11:56.695
  • He says: "Tell God what youneed, and then thank him for all
  • 00:11:56.729 --> 00:12:02.601
  • he has done."
  • 00:12:02.635 --> 00:12:05.604
  • Look at the answer,this is the answer.
  • 00:12:05.638 --> 00:12:07.840
  • He says: "Don't worryabout anything; pray
  • 00:12:07.873 --> 00:12:09.341
  • about everything."
  • 00:12:09.375 --> 00:12:11.677
  • Number two, "Tell him whatyou need, and thank him."
  • 00:12:11.710 --> 00:12:15.414
  • To me, it makes no sense toworry if you can do this.
  • 00:12:15.447 --> 00:12:19.351
  • "Don't worry about anything;pray about everything.
  • 00:12:19.385 --> 00:12:22.354
  • And if you need something,tell him and then thank him."
  • 00:12:22.388 --> 00:12:25.758
  • Lord, have mercy.
  • 00:12:25.791 --> 00:12:27.793
  • Y'all don't hearwhat I'm saying.
  • 00:12:27.827 --> 00:12:30.029
  • "Don't worry about anything;pray about everything.
  • 00:12:30.062 --> 00:12:32.264
  • And if you need something,tell him and then thank him."
  • 00:12:32.298 --> 00:12:35.167
  • And what happens?
  • 00:12:35.201 --> 00:12:37.403
  • Now, you can ride that wave ofpeace and rest all the way into
  • 00:12:37.436 --> 00:12:39.805
  • the manifestation of it.
  • 00:12:39.839 --> 00:12:42.675
  • But sometimes we worry aboutstuff and we don't even take the
  • 00:12:42.708 --> 00:12:45.044
  • time to do what he said to do.
  • 00:12:45.077 --> 00:12:48.414
  • "Don't worry about nothing;pray about everything.
  • 00:12:48.447 --> 00:12:51.116
  • Tell him what youneed, then thank him."
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:54.486
  • Boy, that's a T-shirt.
  • 00:12:54.520 --> 00:12:57.389
  • All right, now, look at this.
  • 00:13:00.659 --> 00:13:02.761
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 4:16through 18 in The Message
  • 00:13:02.795 --> 00:13:04.997
  • translation, 2 Corinthians 4:16through 18 in The
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:07.800
  • Message translation.
  • 00:13:07.833 --> 00:13:12.171
  • Now, as you begin to walk thiswalk, I am not trying to preach
  • 00:13:12.204 --> 00:13:19.178
  • fantasy to you.
  • 00:13:19.211 --> 00:13:22.781
  • I'm not really here thismorning--yes, I wanna encourage
  • 00:13:22.815 --> 00:13:25.084
  • you but I don'twanna preach fantasy.
  • 00:13:25.117 --> 00:13:28.053
  • I want you to see the reality ofthose things that will confront
  • 00:13:28.087 --> 00:13:30.623
  • your life and then what do Ipractically do to handle it?
  • 00:13:30.656 --> 00:13:35.094
  • How do I practicallydeal with it, okay?
  • 00:13:35.127 --> 00:13:37.630
  • I'm not here to say, "Well, whenpotential for a word comes,
  • 00:13:37.663 --> 00:13:40.165
  • just shout it out.
  • 00:13:40.199 --> 00:13:42.902
  • Yeah, I done did that,that don't work.
  • 00:13:42.935 --> 00:13:44.637
  • I just shout and get tired.
  • 00:13:44.670 --> 00:13:47.706
  • And it just waitsuntil I, you know.
  • 00:13:47.740 --> 00:13:50.109
  • But look at this.
  • 00:13:50.142 --> 00:13:51.644
  • Put the Scripture on the screen.
  • 00:13:51.677 --> 00:13:53.379
  • The Message translation saysthis: "So we're not giving up."
  • 00:13:53.412 --> 00:13:58.117
  • Ha, ha, say out loud,"I'm not giving up."
  • 00:13:58.150 --> 00:14:01.654
  • You know, there are some peoplethat worry so much they--it
  • 00:14:01.687 --> 00:14:04.423
  • moves 'em to just give up.
  • 00:14:04.456 --> 00:14:07.626
  • And here's the thing about fear.
  • 00:14:07.660 --> 00:14:10.729
  • You panic.
  • 00:14:10.763 --> 00:14:13.766
  • Panic is definedas groundless fear.
  • 00:14:13.799 --> 00:14:16.602
  • It ain't even real.
  • 00:14:16.635 --> 00:14:19.638
  • You're worrying about somethingthat has no manifestation in it.
  • 00:14:19.672 --> 00:14:22.808
  • Think about that.
  • 00:14:22.841 --> 00:14:25.611
  • When you are afraid thatsomething might happen, that
  • 00:14:25.644 --> 00:14:28.914
  • hadn't happened, you're worryingabout something that's not even
  • 00:14:28.948 --> 00:14:32.084
  • real, instead of believingsomething that's finished.
  • 00:14:32.117 --> 00:14:36.755
  • Fear is not--pleaseunderstand me.
  • 00:14:36.789 --> 00:14:41.093
  • Fear is not real in that thereis no manifestation of the thing
  • 00:14:41.126 --> 00:14:45.197
  • that exists.
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:48.334
  • By pure fact you're fearing itmeans you're fearing something
  • 00:14:48.367 --> 00:14:50.502
  • that hadn't happened yet.
  • 00:14:50.536 --> 00:14:53.339
  • That's just--thinkabout how crazy that is.
  • 00:14:53.372 --> 00:14:56.108
  • You're afraid of something thathas not even manifested, when
  • 00:14:56.141 --> 00:14:59.478
  • you could be believing thefinished works of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:14:59.511 --> 00:15:04.149
  • "I'm afraid they might do this.
  • 00:15:04.183 --> 00:15:06.785
  • I'm afraid I mightgo through this.
  • 00:15:06.819 --> 00:15:09.355
  • I'm afraid of might," listen,ladies and gentlemen, life is
  • 00:15:09.388 --> 00:15:12.391
  • full of, like, risk and youcan't be walking in fear.
  • 00:15:12.424 --> 00:15:15.294
  • I mean, you know, "Well, I couldgo out and die in a car wreck."
  • 00:15:15.327 --> 00:15:18.931
  • Yeah, you could but you have theassurance of Jesus's protection.
  • 00:15:18.964 --> 00:15:22.968
  • That's why it's so awesome tobe born again, that when you
  • 00:15:23.002 --> 00:15:25.838
  • examine all the risks of lifeand then you examine who you are
  • 00:15:25.871 --> 00:15:28.507
  • in Christ, then all of a suddenyou really don't have anything
  • 00:15:28.540 --> 00:15:32.344
  • to be worried aboutbecause he got you.
  • 00:15:32.378 --> 00:15:37.016
  • Yeah, there's a risk.
  • 00:15:37.049 --> 00:15:40.919
  • If you--"Well, I'm not gonnago on a rollercoaster 'cause it
  • 00:15:40.953 --> 00:15:43.489
  • could get stuck."
  • 00:15:43.522 --> 00:15:46.158
  • It could.
  • 00:15:46.191 --> 00:15:49.061
  • But for you who are Christians,he got you so you can step away
  • 00:15:49.094 --> 00:15:51.830
  • from the fear of that.
  • 00:15:51.864 --> 00:15:54.633
  • He's just not gonna let certainthings happen to you 'cause
  • 00:15:54.666 --> 00:15:57.369
  • you've got a covenant with him.
  • 00:15:57.403 --> 00:15:59.838
  • Stuff that would normally happento somebody else won't happen
  • 00:15:59.872 --> 00:16:02.307
  • to you.
  • 00:16:02.341 --> 00:16:03.709
  • People ought to be gladwhen you get on an airplane.
  • 00:16:03.742 --> 00:16:06.612
  • In fact, folks ought to refuseto get on an airplane where
  • 00:16:06.645 --> 00:16:09.114
  • there are no Christians.
  • 00:16:09.148 --> 00:16:11.450
  • You get on a plane, you needto say, "I need to know
  • 00:16:11.483 --> 00:16:13.419
  • if there are Christians on thisairplane," and they say, "We
  • 00:16:13.452 --> 00:16:15.554
  • ain't none of us Christians.
  • 00:16:15.587 --> 00:16:17.122
  • We don't believe in nothingabout God," you need
  • 00:16:17.156 --> 00:16:18.524
  • to get off that airplane.
  • 00:16:18.557 --> 00:16:20.826
  • Well, no, let me change thataround 'cause now that you on
  • 00:16:20.859 --> 00:16:23.028
  • there, they need to pass thebucket on the plane and take you
  • 00:16:23.062 --> 00:16:30.569
  • up an offering 'causeyou on that airplane.
  • 00:16:30.602 --> 00:16:35.307
