  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: THE REALITY
  • 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:15.000
  • OF A POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:16.000
  • IS EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:18.060
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER IF
  • 00:00:18.060 --> 00:00:18.280
  • YOU DENY IT,
  • 00:00:18.280 --> 00:00:19.230
  • OR YOU IGNORE IT,
  • 00:00:19.230 --> 00:00:20.220
  • OR YOU ARE A PART OF IT;
  • 00:00:20.220 --> 00:00:22.190
  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT IS
  • 00:00:22.190 --> 00:00:23.180
  • INESCAPABLE.
  • 00:00:23.180 --> 00:00:25.040
  • EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK,
  • 00:00:25.040 --> 00:00:26.140
  • WE SEE POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.210
  • TURN ON THE NEWS,
  • 00:00:27.210 --> 00:00:28.200
  • AND ALL THEY'RE GOING TO
  • 00:00:28.200 --> 00:00:29.120
  • REALLY BE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:30.150
  • IN PRINCIPLE
  • 00:00:30.150 --> 00:00:31.150
  • IS THE POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:00:31.150 --> 00:00:33.050
  • "THE POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN
  • 00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:34.090
  • RIGHT AND LEFT,"
  • 00:00:34.090 --> 00:00:35.180
  • SOME WILL CALL IT.
  • 00:00:35.180 --> 00:00:36.120
  • "THE POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN
  • 00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:37.170
  • CONSERVATIVE AND LIBERALS,"
  • 00:00:37.170 --> 00:00:38.290
  • OTHERS WILL SAY.
  • 00:00:38.290 --> 00:00:40.010
  • "THE POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN
  • 00:00:40.010 --> 00:00:41.070
  • PROGRESSIVE AND TRADITIONAL."
  • 00:00:41.070 --> 00:00:43.230
  • REGARDLESS OF WHAT TITLE
  • 00:00:43.230 --> 00:00:44.280
  • YOU GIVE IT,
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:45.210
  • IT'S A STRUGGLE FOR CONTROL.
  • 00:00:45.210 --> 00:00:48.140
  • PEOPLE WHO KNOW --
  • 00:00:48.140 --> 00:00:49.200
  • WHO DO NOT HAVE CONTROL,
  • 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:51.000
  • WANT CONTROL.
  • 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:51.250
  • AND PEOPLE, WHO HAVE CONTROL,
  • 00:00:51.250 --> 00:00:53.040
  • WANT TO KEEP CONTROL.
  • 00:00:53.040 --> 00:00:55.080
  • I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:00:55.080 --> 00:00:56.020
  • THAT AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED
  • 00:00:56.020 --> 00:00:57.140
  • TO ALWAYS REMEMBER,
  • 00:00:57.140 --> 00:00:58.190
  • AND I PRAY THEY NEVER FORGET,
  • 00:00:58.190 --> 00:01:00.090
  • IS THAT CONTROL DOESN'T BELONG
  • 00:01:00.090 --> 00:01:02.060
  • TO A POLITICAL PARTY,
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.110
  • NOR TO A PERSON;
  • 00:01:03.110 --> 00:01:04.130
  • CONTROL BELONGS TO YOU.
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:07.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:01:10.030 --> 00:01:13.030
  • NOT ONLY IS THERE POLITICAL
  • 00:01:13.030 --> 00:01:14.040
  • POWER STRUGGLES,
  • 00:01:14.040 --> 00:01:14.270
  • BUT YOU CAN LOOK
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:15.270
  • IN THE NEWSPAPERS,
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:16.270
  • AND EVERY ARTICLE YOU READ,
  • 00:01:16.270 --> 00:01:18.150
  • YOU'RE GOING TO READ ABOUT
  • 00:01:18.150 --> 00:01:19.080
  • GLOBAL POWER STRUGGLES.
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:20.150
  • YOU'LL READ ABOUT ONE NATION'S
  • 00:01:20.150 --> 00:01:21.250
  • AGENDA FOR THE WORLD VERSUS
  • 00:01:21.250 --> 00:01:23.090
  • ANOTHER NATION'S AGENDA
  • 00:01:23.090 --> 00:01:24.060
  • FOR THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:24.290
  • WHENEVER YOU READ ABOUT
  • 00:01:24.290 --> 00:01:25.250
  • THE UNITED NATIONS,
  • 00:01:25.250 --> 00:01:26.290
  • OR G8, OR G20,
  • 00:01:26.290 --> 00:01:28.140
  • OR GEE WHIZ;
  • 00:01:28.140 --> 00:01:29.200
  • THEY'RE ALL UP THERE TALKING
  • 00:01:29.200 --> 00:01:30.200
  • ABOUT POWER.
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:32.190
  • IT'S A POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:01:32.190 --> 00:01:33.170
  • WE SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISED
  • 00:01:33.170 --> 00:01:34.200
  • BY IT.
  • 00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:35.090
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:01:35.090 --> 00:01:36.100
  • "NATION WILL RISE
  • 00:01:36.100 --> 00:01:37.110
  • AGAINST NATION.
  • 00:01:37.110 --> 00:01:38.080
  • KINGDOM WILL RISE
  • 00:01:38.080 --> 00:01:39.030
  • AGAINST KINGDOM."
  • 00:01:39.030 --> 00:01:39.270
  • HE TOLD US IT WAS GOING
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:41.050
  • TO HAPPEN,
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:41.220
  • AND WE'RE SEEING IT EACH
  • 00:01:41.220 --> 00:01:42.220
  • AND EVERY DAY.
  • 00:01:42.220 --> 00:01:44.070
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GO HOME TODAY
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:45.180
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO ENGAGE
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:47.000
  • THE POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:48.110
  • IT'S GOING TO LOOK LIKE
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:48.260
  • A COMMERCIAL IN WHICH THEY ARE
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:50.200
  • ADVERTISING THEIR BRAND
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:52.120
  • AND THEY'RE DENOUNCING
  • 00:01:52.120 --> 00:01:53.130
  • EVERY OTHER BRAND.
  • 00:01:53.130 --> 00:01:54.100
  • WHY?
  • 00:01:54.100 --> 00:01:54.270
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE COMPETING
  • 00:01:54.270 --> 00:01:56.030
  • FOR CONTROL OF WHAT'S
  • 00:01:56.030 --> 00:01:57.010
  • IN YOUR WALLET.
  • 00:01:57.010 --> 00:01:59.130
  • THEY WANT YOUR MONEY AND IT'S
  • 00:01:59.130 --> 00:02:00.180
  • A POWER STRUGGLE TO GET IT.
  • 00:02:00.180 --> 00:02:03.090
  • TODAY,
  • 00:02:03.090 --> 00:02:03.290
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:03.290 --> 00:02:04.260
  • A POLITICAL POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:02:04.260 --> 00:02:06.030
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:07.020
  • A GLOBAL POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:08.110
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:09.090
  • AN ECONOMIC POWER STRUGGLE.
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:11.000
  • TODAY I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:12.070
  • THE POWER STRUGGLE
  • 00:02:12.070 --> 00:02:13.150
  • THAT CONTROLS ALL OF THOSE,
  • 00:02:13.150 --> 00:02:15.250
  • AND THAT'S THE PERSONAL POWER
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:17.100
  • STRUGGLE THAT IS IN YOU.
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:20.080
  • IN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US,
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:22.070
  • THERE IS A STRUGGLE
  • 00:02:22.070 --> 00:02:23.150
  • BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG,
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:25.200
  • BETWEEN FLESH AND FAITH,
  • 00:02:25.200 --> 00:02:27.220
  • BETWEEN WHAT I KNOW I SHOULD DO
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:29.280
  • AND WHAT I REALLY WANT TO DO.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:34.060
  • AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE TROUBLE
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:35.170
  • ADMITTING THAT.
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:38.080
  • SOME PEOPLE WANT TO COME
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:39.130
  • TO CHURCH AND SMILE REAL BIG
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:41.080

  • AND PRETEND LIKE EVERYTHING
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:42.180
  • IS JUST PERFECT.
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:45.060
  • LIAR!
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:47.030 --> 00:02:49.160
  • SOME PEOPLE WANT TO PRETEND
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:50.150
  • LIKE THEY'VE NEVER STRUGGLED
  • 00:02:50.150 --> 00:02:51.150
  • WITH SIN A DAY IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:52.220
  • HOW DARE I EVEN FAME
  • 00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:54.020
  • THE THOUGHT.
  • 00:02:54.020 --> 00:02:55.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:56.170
  • LIAR!

  • BELIEVE IT'S SUPPOSED TO HAVE,
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:06.240
  • I'VE GRAPPLED WITH THIS TEXT
  • 00:03:06.240 --> 00:03:08.160
  • AND THIS TOPIC.
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:09.160
  • THERE ARE TIMES WHEN A PREACHER
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:10.200
  • GOES BEFORE THE THRONE,
  • 00:03:10.200 --> 00:03:11.240
  • AND HE GOES "LORD,
  • 00:03:11.240 --> 00:03:12.150
  • WHAT SHOULD I SAY?"
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:13.080
  • AND HE SAYS, "SAY THIS,"
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:14.110
  • AND YOU GO,
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.020
  • "LORD, PICK ANOTHER TOPIC."
  • 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:17.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:20.100
  • BUT THE ONLY WAY THAT THIS
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:21.120
  • IS GOING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

  • IS IF YOU DO SOMETHING FOR ME
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:25.040
  • TODAY.
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:26.150
  • IF YOU ALLOW THIS CONVERSATION
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:28.080
  • TO BE A VERY PERSONAL ONE,
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:29.270
  • FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:30.230
  • THIS WILL BE VERY EASY.
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:32.010
  • FOR OTHERS OF YOU,
  • 00:03:32.010 --> 00:03:32.240
  • IT WILL BE UNLIKE ANYTHING
  • 00:03:32.240 --> 00:03:34.150
  • YOU'VE EVER DONE BEFORE.
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:35.140
  • FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:36.070
  • IT'S SECOND NATURE.
  • 00:03:36.070 --> 00:03:37.040
  • FOR OTHERS OF YOU,
  • 00:03:37.040 --> 00:03:37.270
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME
  • 00:03:37.270 --> 00:03:38.270
  • TO ABSORB.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:39.210
  • BUT WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:40.290
  • FOR THE REST OF THIS MESSAGE
  • 00:03:40.290 --> 00:03:42.130
  • IS ONLY THINK ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:46.210
  • SOME OF YOU ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:47.080
  • LIKE, NO PROBLEM;
  • 00:03:47.080 --> 00:03:48.000
  • I DO THAT ALL THE TIME ANYWAY.
  • 00:03:48.000 --> 00:03:49.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:51.110 --> 00:03:54.110
  • BECAUSE I'M NOT ASKING YOU,
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:56.050
  • "WHAT HANGS IN SOMEONE ELSE'S
  • 00:03:56.050 --> 00:03:58.120
  • TREE?"
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:03:59.000
  • I'M ASKING YOU,
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:03:59.250
  • "WHAT HANGS IN YOUR TREE?"
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:05.010
  • WE HAVE A GRAPHIC BEHIND US
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:06.100
  • THAT SHOWS A TREE THAT KIND OF
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:07.200
  • SYMBOLIZES THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT
  • 00:04:07.200 --> 00:04:09.080
  • THAT WE READ ABOUT
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.000
  • IN GENESIS 2.
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:11.250
  • AND IN OUR MIND,
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:13.110
  • WE'VE CREATED THIS STORY
  • 00:04:13.110 --> 00:04:14.220
  • SOMEWHAT SYMBOLIC;
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:15.260
  • THAT THERE'S JUST A CUTE,
  • 00:04:15.260 --> 00:04:17.050
  • LITTLE APPLE THAT HANGS
  • 00:04:17.050 --> 00:04:18.070
  • IN THAT TREE,
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:18.270
  • AND ALL THEY REALLY DID
  • 00:04:18.270 --> 00:04:19.200
  • WAS JUST PULL DOWN THAT APPLE
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:20.220
  • AND TAKE ONE BITE,
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:21.180
  • AND THEN WE ALL WOUND UP
  • 00:04:21.180 --> 00:04:22.140
  • IN THIS MESS.
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:23.060
  • BUT THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:25.250
  • THE TRUTH IS THEY KNEW
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:26.280
  • WHAT THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO DO
  • 00:04:26.280 --> 00:04:28.120
  • AND THEY DIDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:04:28.120 --> 00:04:31.060
  • AND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:31.290
  • ARE PLAGUED
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:32.210
  • WITH THIS SAME TRUTH.
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:35.000
  • SO RATHER THAN PUT LITTLE,
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:35.260
  • CUTE APPLES UP THERE,
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:37.050
  • I PUT SOME THINGS UP THERE
  • 00:04:37.050 --> 00:04:38.100
  • THAT I THINK MIGHT BE TEMPTING
  • 00:04:38.100 --> 00:04:40.200
  • TO SOME OF YOUR FLESH.
  • 00:04:40.200 --> 00:04:42.230
  • GREED, OH NO, PASTOR;
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:44.280
  • I DON'T HAVE ANY TROUBLE
  • 00:04:44.280 --> 00:04:46.070
  • WITH GREED.
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:46.210
  • BUT WHAT ABOUT GOSSIP?
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:48.260
  • NO, PASTOR; I DON'T GOSSIP,
  • 00:04:48.260 --> 00:04:49.260
  • I JUST HAVE A BIG PRAYER
  • 00:04:49.260 --> 00:04:50.220
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:52.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:54.290
  • LUST,
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:57.020
  • ADDICTION,
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:58.230
  • LYING,
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:00.220
  • IDOLATRY.
  • 00:05:00.220 --> 00:05:03.040
  • YOU SAY,
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:03.180
  • WELL I'VE NEVER WORSHIPED
  • 00:05:03.180 --> 00:05:04.050
  • A FALSE GOD.
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:06.060
  • BUT HAVE YOU PUT GOD FIRST
  • 00:05:06.060 --> 00:05:07.140
  • IN EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:08.130
  • THIS WEEK?
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:10.090
  • BECAUSE THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:05:10.090 --> 00:05:10.280
  • THAT THIS IS GOING TO WORK,
  • 00:05:10.280 --> 00:05:11.280
  • THE ONLY WAY THAT YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:12.250
  • TO WALK OUT OF HERE REALLY
  • 00:05:12.250 --> 00:05:13.290
  • REJOICING IN THE JOY
  • 00:05:13.290 --> 00:05:15.210
  • OF YOUR SALVATION IS
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:17.210
  • IF JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE,
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:18.250
  • YOU ARE WILLING TO MAKE THIS
  • 00:05:18.250 --> 00:05:20.110
  • YOUR PERSONAL CONVERSATION
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:21.260
  • WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:24.020
  • THIS CAN'T BE LIKE
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:24.250
  • JUST ANOTHER SUNDAY
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:25.170
  • WHERE YOU HEAR SOMETHING GOOD
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:27.020
  • AND YOU ELBOW YOUR SPOUSE.
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.020
  • DID YOU HEAR THAT?
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.030
  • DID YOU HEAR THAT?
  • 00:05:29.030 --> 00:05:30.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:32.140
  • THIS CAN'T BE ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:33.120
  • SUNDAYS WHERE THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:05:33.120 --> 00:05:34.210
  • HAS A MESSAGE FOR YOU,
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.010
  • AND YOU TRY TO APPLY IT
  • 00:05:36.010 --> 00:05:37.010
  • TO EVERYONE ELSE YOU KNOW.
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:40.220
  • THIS HAS TO BE ONE SUNDAY
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:41.290
  • WHERE YOU'RE WILLING TO TAKE
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:42.260
  • ALL OF THAT AND SET IT ASIDE,
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:44.070
  • AND SAY, "LORD,
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:45.050
  • IF THIS IS A CONVERSATION
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:46.130
  • BETWEEN YOU AND I,
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:47.090
  • MY EARS ARE OPEN,
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:48.110
  • MY HEART IS READY;
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:49.170
  • SPEAK TO ME."
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:55.070
  • THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:05:55.070 --> 00:05:56.000
  • IN THIS ROOM TODAY,
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:57.000
  • WHO ARE THINKING ABOUT DOING
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:58.030
  • THINGS THIS WEEK
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:06:00.050
  • THAT WILL COST YOU DEARLY.
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:02.200
  • I KNOW THAT WHILE I'M SPEAKING
  • 00:06:02.200 --> 00:06:04.150
  • TO THOUSANDS IN THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:06.290
  • AND MULTIPLE TIMES THAT
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:08.190
  • OVER TELEVISION,
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:09.190
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE HERE THAT ARE
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:11.050
  • THINKING ABOUT THROWING
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.050
  • THEIR MARRIAGE AWAY.
  • 00:06:12.050 --> 00:06:14.000
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE HERE THAT
  • 00:06:14.000 --> 00:06:15.000
  • MAYBE YOU'VE GOT A FINANCIAL
  • 00:06:15.000 --> 00:06:16.030
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:16.030 --> 00:06:16.230
  • AND YOU'RE THINKING,
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:17.100
  • MAYBE IF YOU JUST TAKE A LITTLE
  • 00:06:17.100 --> 00:06:18.140
  • BIT OF MONEY FROM THE COMPANY,
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.230
  • THEY WON'T MISS IT,
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:20.230
  • AND THEN YOUR PROBLEMS
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:21.160
  • WILL BE SOLVED.
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.260
  • I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:23.290
  • I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY
  • 00:06:23.290 --> 00:06:25.080
  • THE CIRCUMSTANCE.
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:26.050
  • BUT ONE THING I'M CERTAIN OF,
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:27.140
  • GOD KNOWS.
  • 00:06:27.140 --> 00:06:28.250
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.160
  • AND THE REASON THAT
  • 00:06:30.160 --> 00:06:31.030
  • HE SENT ME HERE TODAY IS NOT
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:32.220
  • TO ENTERTAIN
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:33.210
  • THE OUTSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:34.280
  • BUT TO GIVE HIS HANDS
  • 00:06:34.280 --> 00:06:36.110
  • THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE
  • 00:06:36.110 --> 00:06:37.260
  • THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:40.220
  • BECAUSE HE WANTS TO DO
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:41.150
  • SOMETHING FOR YOU TODAY THAT
  • 00:06:41.150 --> 00:06:42.210
  • YOU CANNOT DO FOR YOURSELF.
  • 00:06:42.210 --> 00:06:44.140
  • TODAY,
  • 00:06:44.140 --> 00:06:45.030
  • HE WANTS TO STOP SIN
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:46.210
  • BEFORE SIN STOPS YOU.
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:49.270
  • YOU SEE GOD CREATED YOU.
  • 00:06:49.270 --> 00:06:51.180
  • HE MADE YOU LOWER THAN
  • 00:06:51.180 --> 00:06:52.200
  • THE ANGELS.
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:53.050
  • NO MATTER WHAT THE SCIENTIST
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.170
  • AT THE SCHOOL TOLD YOU,
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.260
  • DON'T BELIEVE THEIR LIES.
  • 00:06:55.260 --> 00:06:57.070
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:57.260
  • "LET GOD BE TRUE
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:58.290
  • AND EVERY MAN A LIAR."
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:00.080
  • YOU ARE NOT CREATED
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:01.120
  • IN THE IMAGE OF AN ANIMAL.
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:02.200
  • YOU ARE CREATED IN THE IMAGE
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:03.290
  • OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
  • 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:07.000
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:07.020 --> 00:07:10.020
  • HE WANTS YOU TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:11.060
  • WHAT IT MEANS
  • 00:07:11.060 --> 00:07:12.090
  • TO BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:07:12.090 --> 00:07:13.150
  • HE WANTS YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:15.040
  • WHEN HE SENT HIS SON TO DIE
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:17.060
  • THAT WE MIGHT BE SET FREE,
  • 00:07:17.060 --> 00:07:18.260
  • HE DIDN'T SEND HIM HERE SO THAT
  • 00:07:18.260 --> 00:07:20.170
  • YOU COULD BE A BETTER VERSION
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:21.250
  • OF YOUR OLD SELF.
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:25.070
  • HE SENT HIM HERE THAT YOU
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:26.030
  • MIGHT BE A NEW CREATURE
  • 00:07:26.030 --> 00:07:28.070
  • IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:07:28.070 --> 00:07:30.260
  • AND THAT IS WHY THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:07:30.260 --> 00:07:32.200
  • THAT FOR A GOOD MAN,
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.030
  • WOULD A RIGHTEOUS MAN DIE.
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:35.090
  • BUT GOD DEMONSTRATES
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:36.160
  • HIS OWN LOVE TOWARDS US;
  • 00:07:36.160 --> 00:07:39.050
  • THAT WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS,
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:42.230
  • CHRIST DIED FOR US.
  • 00:07:43.260 --> 00:07:46.260
  • "WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS,
  • 00:07:46.260 --> 00:07:49.010
  • CHRIST DIED FOR US."
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:51.090
  • THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THAT I CAN
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:53.020
  • DO ABOUT MY INHERITED NATURE.
  • 00:07:53.020 --> 00:07:55.220
  • SO SOMEONE WITH A BRAND NEW
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:57.170
  • NATURE UNLIKE MINE,
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.200
  • SOMEONE WITH A NATURE THAT WAS
  • 00:07:59.200 --> 00:08:01.010
  • PERFECT BEFORE GOD THE FATHER,
  • 00:08:01.010 --> 00:08:03.020
  • CAME FROM HEAVEN ALL THE WAY
  • 00:08:03.020 --> 00:08:04.200
  • DOWN TO EARTH.
  • 00:08:04.200 --> 00:08:05.200
  • AND HE TOOK ON MY FORM,
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:07.240
  • AND HE BECAME SOMEONE LIKE ME,
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:10.090
  • AND HE LIVED A PERFECT
  • 00:08:10.090 --> 00:08:11.220
  • AND SINLESS LIFE SO THAT
  • 00:08:11.220 --> 00:08:13.030
  • WHEN HE WENT TO ANOTHER TREE
  • 00:08:13.030 --> 00:08:15.040
  • WHERE TEMPTATION AND SIN
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:16.230
  • HAD TAKEN OVER,
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:17.260
  • HE TOOK MY TEMPTATION,
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:19.190
  • HE TOOK MY SIN,
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.070
  • HE TOOK YOUR SIN,
  • 00:08:21.070 --> 00:08:22.240
  • HE TOOK ALL OF THAT!
  • 00:08:22.240 --> 00:08:24.060
  • AND HE WENT TO A PLACE
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:25.080
  • CALLED CALVARY.
  • 00:08:25.080 --> 00:08:26.140
  • AND THERE,
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:27.020
  • HE HUNG THAT I MIGHT GO FREE!
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:29.150
  • AND THERE HE DIED
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:30.200
  • THAT I MIGHT LIVE!
  • 00:08:30.200 --> 00:08:32.050
  • AND THERE HE WORE CROWNS
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:33.210
  • THAT I MIGHT BECOME ROYALTY!
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:35.210
  • AND WHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:08:35.210 --> 00:08:36.180
  • "IT IS FINISHED,"
  • 00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:37.220
  • THE INHERITED OLD ME DIED!
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:40.120
  • AND THANK GOD;
  • 00:08:40.120 --> 00:08:41.130
  • I WAS BORN AGAIN!
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:43.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:45.010 --> 00:08:48.010
  • DID YOU HEAR THAT?
  • 00:08:48.010 --> 00:08:48.280
  • I AM BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:52.210
  • THAT MEANS THAT WHENEVER
  • 00:08:52.210 --> 00:08:53.200
  • I CAME TO CHRIST,
  • 00:08:53.200 --> 00:08:55.040
  • THE INHERITED NATURE
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:56.120
  • THAT CAME FROM ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:08:58.010
  • IT WAS DEAD!
  • 00:08:58.010 --> 00:09:00.140
  • "I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST."
  • 00:09:01.120 --> 00:09:04.120
  • THEREFORE,
  • 00:09:04.120 --> 00:09:04.290
  • I NO LONGER LIVE BUT THE WAY
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:06.250
  • THAT ADAM USED TO LIVE IN ME.
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:08.280
  • WHEN I COME TO CHRIST,
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.010
  • NOW HE LIVES IN ME.
  • 00:09:11.030 --> 00:09:14.030
  • AND NOW THIS LIFE THAT I LIVE
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:15.110
  • IN THE FLESH,
  • 00:09:15.110 --> 00:09:16.010
  • THE ONE THAT'S STANDING HERE
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:16.280
  • BEFORE YOU BREATHING,
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:18.080
  • IN FAITH --
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:20.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:09:20.110 --> 00:09:21.140
  • IN FAITH.
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:23.260
  • -- I HAVE TO ANNOUNCE
  • 00:09:23.260 --> 00:09:25.080
  • THAT IT IS CHRIST IN ME
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:27.120
  • AND NOT ADAM IN ME.
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:30.170
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:33.210
  • "TO HIM WHO KNOWS TO DO RIGHT
  • 00:09:33.210 --> 00:09:35.070
  • AND DOES IT NOT,
  • 00:09:35.070 --> 00:09:36.020
  • TO HIM, IT IS SIN."
  • 00:09:36.020 --> 00:09:37.190
  • NOW HOW MANY OF YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:39.000
  • THAT THAT'S A PRETTY BROAD
  • 00:09:39.000 --> 00:09:40.010
  • DEFINITION FOR SIN?
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:43.260
  • HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:09:43.260 --> 00:09:45.020
  • JAMES 1:14 THROUGH 16 GIVES US
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:47.270
  • A VERY POWERFUL PROGRESSION.
  • 00:09:47.270 --> 00:09:49.150
  • IT TELLS US THAT EACH ONE
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:51.190
  • IS TEMPTED WHEN THEY'RE DRAWN
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:54.180
  • INTO THEIR OWN DESIRE.
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:57.160
  • SAID ANOTHER WAY,
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:58.200
  • TEMPTATION IS A TAILOR-MADE
  • 00:09:58.200 --> 00:10:00.190
  • SUIT.
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:02.180
  • WHAT TEMPTS YOU IS CREATED
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:04.170
  • BY YOUR DESIRE
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:06.000
  • AND IT ONLY FITS YOU.
  • 00:10:06.060 --> 00:10:09.060
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THAT WE
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:10.040
  • HAVE IN CHURCH IS THAT WE ARE
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:11.200
  • OFTEN WILLING TO POINT OUT
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:13.110
  • WHAT WE FIND TO BE THE FLAWS
  • 00:10:13.110 --> 00:10:14.290
  • IN OTHER PEOPLE'S TEMPTATIONS.
  • 00:10:14.290 --> 00:10:17.140
  • I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY'D DO THAT.
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:21.220
  • WELL THAT'S NOT YOUR
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:22.160
  • TAILOR-MADE SUIT
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:23.110
  • THEY'RE WEARING.

  • AND THEN THE BIBLE SAYS THIS.
  • 00:10:32.280 --> 00:10:35.150
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:36.010
  • "AND WHEN DESIRE

  • TEMPTATION IS NOT YOUR SIN.
  • 00:10:50.160 --> 00:10:53.160
  • IT'S THE CONCEPTION
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:54.230
  • OF TEMPTATION THAT IS A SIN.
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:58.240
  • AND THEN IT SAYS,
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:10:59.170
  • "AND SIN BRINGS FORTH DEATH."
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:05.230

  • THAT ARE PRESENT THERE,
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:06.090
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:07.090
  • "I'M CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST."
  • 00:13:07.090 --> 00:13:08.190
  • PAUL SAID IN 1 CORINTHIANS 15,
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:10.140
  • "I DIE DAILY."
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:13.050
  • NOW PROFESSING
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:14.020
  • THAT YOU'RE DEAD
  • 00:13:14.020 --> 00:13:15.010
  • DOESN'T MAKE IT ANY EASIER.
  • 00:13:15.010 --> 00:13:17.000
  • THE FIRST THING THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:13:17.000 --> 00:13:17.280
  • TO DO IN ORDER TO STOP
  • 00:13:17.280 --> 00:13:19.240
  • IS YOU HAVE TO, FIRST,
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:21.240
  • CONFESS SINFUL THOUGHTS.
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:23.290
  • "S" IS SINFUL THOUGHTS
  • 00:13:23.290 --> 00:13:26.240
  • CONFESSED.
  • 00:13:26.240 --> 00:13:27.130
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:13:27.130 --> 00:13:28.090
  • SINFUL THOUGHTS CONFESSED.
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:31.280
  • IT'S NOT SINFUL ACTIONS
  • 00:13:31.280 --> 00:13:33.210
  • CONFESSED.
  • 00:13:33.210 --> 00:13:34.090
  • IT'S SINFUL -- WHAT?
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:35.240
  • -- THOUGHTS.
  • 00:13:35.240 --> 00:13:37.000
  • WHY?
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:37.120
  • BECAUSE WHENEVER TEMPTATION
  • 00:13:37.120 --> 00:13:39.190
  • IS CONCEIVED,
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:40.190
  • IT GIVES BIRTH TO SIN.
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:42.000
  • SO WE'VE GOT TO KILL IT
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:43.070
  • BEFORE THERE'S CONCEPTION.
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:47.090
  • YOU'RE NOT SINNING
  • 00:13:47.090 --> 00:13:48.110
  • WHEN YOU'RE THINKING.
  • 00:13:48.110 --> 00:13:50.060
  • BUT YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:51.040
  • SINNING.
  • 00:13:51.040 --> 00:13:53.190
  • THAT SOUNDS A LITTLE CONFUSING,
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:54.290
  • BUT I ASSURE YOU THERE'S A LOT
  • 00:13:54.290 --> 00:13:56.020
  • OF YOU WHO GET IT.
  • 00:13:56.030 --> 00:13:59.030
  • AND THE THING THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:13:59.030 --> 00:13:59.260
  • TO DO WITH SINFUL THOUGHTS
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:01.020
  • IS CONFESS THEM.
  • 00:14:01.020 --> 00:14:01.270
  • NOW THE THING THAT'S IMPORTANT
  • 00:14:01.270 --> 00:14:02.250
  • FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:14:02.250 --> 00:14:03.250
  • IS WHERE TO CONFESS THEM.
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:06.070
  • IN 1 JOHN 1:8, JOHN SAYS,
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:09.000
  • "WE DECEIVE OURSELVES
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:10.160
  • IF WE SAY WE HAVE NO SIN."
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:12.010
  • AND HE SAID THIS BECAUSE
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:13.090
  • IN THE 1ST CENTURY,
  • 00:14:13.090 --> 00:14:14.150
  • THERE WERE A BUNCH OF PEOPLE
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.120
  • GOING TO CHURCHES, AND SAYING,
  • 00:14:15.120 --> 00:14:16.200
  • "WELL IF YOU SIN,
  • 00:14:16.200 --> 00:14:18.080
  • YOU DON'T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:14:18.080 --> 00:14:19.140
  • WITH JESUS,
  • 00:14:19.140 --> 00:14:20.050
  • BECAUSE THOSE WHO HAVE
  • 00:14:20.050 --> 00:14:21.010
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 00:14:21.010 --> 00:14:22.000
  • NEVER, NEVER, NEVER,
  • 00:14:22.000 --> 00:14:22.260
  • EVER, EVER, EVER,
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:23.220
  • NEVER, NEVER; NO,
  • 00:14:23.220 --> 00:14:24.200
  • NEVER EVER SIN.
  • 00:14:24.200 --> 00:14:26.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:26.120 --> 00:14:28.010
  • LIARS!
  • 00:14:28.010 --> 00:14:29.240
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:29.240 --> 00:14:31.200
  • WHAT JOHN WAS SAYING IS THE
  • 00:14:31.200 --> 00:14:32.220
  • ONLY HOPE THAT YOU HAVE TO GET
  • 00:14:32.220 --> 00:14:34.070
  • AWAY FROM SIN IS TO CONFESS IT.
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:38.040
  • DON'T HIDE IT.
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:39.140
  • IT'LL KILL YOU.
  • 00:14:39.140 --> 00:14:40.230
  • BRING IT OUT AND SHOW IT TO
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:41.250
  • GOD, BECAUSE 1 JOHN 1:9 SAYS,
  • 00:14:41.250 --> 00:14:44.110
  • "IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS,
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:46.290
  • THEN HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST
  • 00:14:46.290 --> 00:14:48.270
  • TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS,
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:50.080
  • AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:52.010
  • UNRIGHTEOUSNESS."
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:53.280
  • NOW THERE'S SOME
  • 00:14:53.280 --> 00:14:54.170
  • VERY IMPORTANT NUANCES
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:55.160
  • TO THIS VERSE.
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:56.050
  • BUT THE ONE THING I REALLY WANT
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:56.290
  • YOU TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT WHEN
  • 00:14:56.290 --> 00:14:58.210
  • YOU CONFESS SINFUL THOUGHTS,
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:14:59.270
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:01.060
  • "CONFESS THEM TO JESUS."
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:04.010
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:04.130
  • BECAUSE IF YOU CONFESS THEM
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.160
  • TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW,
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:06.130
  • THEY'LL PUT THEM ON FACEBOOK.
  • 00:15:06.130 --> 00:15:08.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:12.110
  • THE REASON YOU CONFESS SINFUL
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:13.230
  • THOUGHTS TO JESUS IS TRULY
  • 00:15:13.230 --> 00:15:15.060
  • THIS;
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:15.230
  • HE'S THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO
  • 00:15:15.230 --> 00:15:17.020
  • ANYTHING ABOUT THEM ANYWAY.
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:18.260
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:20.250
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO GAVE YOU
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:22.180
  • THE NEW NATURE THAT YOU ACCEPT
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:24.080
  • BY FAITH.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.140
  • SO WHEN YOU THINK THAT THOUGHT,
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:27.250
  • DON'T FEEL GUILTY AND SAY, "OH,
  • 00:15:27.250 --> 00:15:29.090
  • I SHOULDN'T THINK THAT WAY."
  • 00:15:29.090 --> 00:15:30.140
  • WHEN YOU THINK THAT THOUGHT,
  • 00:15:30.140 --> 00:15:31.140
  • SAY, "JESUS,
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:32.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M THINKING.
  • 00:15:32.070 --> 00:15:33.180
  • PLEASE TAKE THIS ONE AWAY."
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:37.020
  • THE SECOND THING YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:37.290
  • DO IS THINK ON THESE THINGS.
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:44.130
  • IF SIN IS CONCEIVED
  • 00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:45.290
  • IN YOUR THOUGHTS,
  • 00:15:45.290 --> 00:15:47.010
  • THEN WHENEVER YOU HAVE SINFUL
  • 00:15:47.010 --> 00:15:48.110
  • THOUGHTS,
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:49.000
  • AFTER YOU CONFESS THEM,
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:50.070
  • YOU'VE GOT TO CHANGE
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:51.040
  • THE CHANNEL.
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:53.240
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THAT
  • 00:15:53.240 --> 00:15:54.170
  • WE HAVE IS WE SAY,
  • 00:15:54.170 --> 00:15:55.170
  • "LORD, FORGIVE ME FOR THINKING
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:57.010
  • THESE SINFUL THOUGHTS."
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:15:58.030
  • AND THEN WE PICK UP
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:15:59.090
  • THE SAME THING THAT CAUSED US
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:00.080
  • TO THINK IT,
  • 00:16:00.080 --> 00:16:00.270
  • AND GO, "OH WOW; LOOK AT THAT.
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:03.030
  • OH GOD,
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:03.170
  • FORGIVE ME FOR THINKING
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:04.120
  • THESE SINFUL THOUGHTS.
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:05.130
  • I DON'T WANT TO BE THIS WAY
  • 00:16:05.130 --> 00:16:06.180
  • ANYMORE."
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:07.270
  • YOU'RE KIDDING; REALLY?
  • 00:16:07.270 --> 00:16:09.280
  • "LORD JESUS,
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:10.140
  • HELP ME OVERCOME THIS CHALLENGE
  • 00:16:10.140 --> 00:16:12.000
  • THAT I'VE GOT.
  • 00:16:12.000 --> 00:16:12.160
  • I DON'T EVER WANT TO DO THIS
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:13.150
  • AGAIN."
  • 00:16:13.150 --> 00:16:15.110
  • YOU'RE KIDDING.
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:16.120
  • LIKE, SHARE, POST.
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:19.060
  • WOW.
  • 00:16:19.070 --> 00:16:22.070
  • IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE, FOLKS.
  • 00:16:22.070 --> 00:16:24.180
  • WHEN YOU'RE THINKING SINFUL
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:25.200
  • THOUGHTS,
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:26.050
  • WHATEVER CAUSED YOU TO THINK
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:27.060
  • THAT THOUGHT,
  • 00:16:27.060 --> 00:16:28.020
  • CHANGE THE CHANNEL!
  • 00:16:28.020 --> 00:16:30.250
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:31.160
  • PAUL SAID IT THIS WAY
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:32.100
  • IN PHILIPPIANS 4:8,
  • 00:16:32.100 --> 00:16:33.130
  • "WHATEVER THINGS ARE NOBLE,
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:34.240
  • WHATEVER THINGS ARE JUST,
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:35.250
  • WHATEVER THINGS ARE PURE,
  • 00:16:35.250 --> 00:16:36.270
  • WHATEVER THINGS ARE HOLY,
  • 00:16:36.270 --> 00:16:38.110
  • WHATEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.110
  • REPORT;
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:40.000
  • THINK ON THESE THINGS."
  • 00:16:41.020 --> 00:16:44.020
  • WHEN THE TEMPTATION TO COMPLAIN
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:45.160
  • COMES OVER YOU,
  • 00:16:45.160 --> 00:16:46.120
  • DON'T TAKE THAT TEMPTATION AND
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:47.260
  • ALLOW IT TO GIVE BIRTH TO SIN.
  • 00:16:47.260 --> 00:16:49.140
  • WHEN THE TEMPTATION OF COMPLAIN
  • 00:16:49.140 --> 00:16:50.190
  • COMES OVER YOU,
  • 00:16:50.190 --> 00:16:51.110
  • START THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:16:51.110 --> 00:16:52.070
  • ALL OF THE THINGS THAT GOD
  • 00:16:52.070 --> 00:16:53.040
  • HAS DONE GOOD FOR YOU,
  • 00:16:53.040 --> 00:16:54.080
  • AND GIVE HIM PRAISE FOR THOSE.
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:56.030
  • WHEN THE TEMPTATION TO DESTROY
  • 00:16:56.030 --> 00:16:57.110
  • YOUR MARRIAGE COMES OVER YOU,
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:16:58.280
  • DON'T THINK ABOUT THE THINGS
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:00.110
  • THAT GIVE YOU REASON TO FEEL
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:01.180
  • THAT WAY.
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:02.110
  • THINK ABOUT THE BLESSING
  • 00:17:02.110 --> 00:17:03.120
  • THAT THIS RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:17:03.120 --> 00:17:04.110
  • HAS BEEN IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:04.110 --> 00:17:05.090
  • GIVE GOD THANKS FOR THAT
  • 00:17:05.090 --> 00:17:06.150
  • RELATIONSHIP AND SEE
  • 00:17:06.150 --> 00:17:07.120
  • IF HE WON'T BRING HIS PEACE
  • 00:17:07.120 --> 00:17:08.220
  • BACK IN AND RESTORE IT.
  • 00:17:08.220 --> 00:17:11.050
  • WHEN THE TEMPTATION TO THROW
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:12.030
  • YOUR BUSINESS AWAY OR THROW
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:13.100
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIPS AWAY
  • 00:17:13.100 --> 00:17:14.160
  • COMES OVER YOU,
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:15.090
  • WHATEVER IT IS THAT'S TAKING
  • 00:17:15.090 --> 00:17:17.040
  • YOU DOWN THAT ROAD,
  • 00:17:17.040 --> 00:17:18.250
  • THERE IS AN OPPOSITE DIRECTION
  • 00:17:18.250 --> 00:17:20.230
  • THAT YOU CAN GO.
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:21.240
  • AND YOU NEED TO MAKE THE
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:22.250
  • CONSCIOUS DECISION THAT
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:24.080
  • YOU'RE GOING TO REPENT;
  • 00:17:24.080 --> 00:17:26.030
  • THAT YOU ARE GOING TO CHANGE
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.110
  • YOUR PATH FROM THINKING THIS
  • 00:17:27.110 --> 00:17:29.140
  • WAY TO WALKING AND TALKING
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:31.090
  • AND BELIEVING THIS WAY,
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:33.010
  • SO THAT YOU CAN CHANGE
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:34.110
  • THE CHANNEL AND TAKE CONTROL
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:36.110
  • OF YOUR THOUGHT LIFE.
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:38.040
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:38.240
  • AFTER YOU THINK GOOD THOUGHTS,
  • 00:17:38.240 --> 00:17:40.090
  • YOU HAVE TO ORDER
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:41.190
  • YOUR THOUGHTS.
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:42.060
  • THAT'S "O".
  • 00:17:42.060 --> 00:17:44.070
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO STOP SIN,
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:45.080
  • YOU'VE GOT TO ORDER
  • 00:17:45.080 --> 00:17:45.250
  • YOUR THOUGHTS.
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:46.210
  • NEURO SCIENTISTS
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:48.180
  • AND NEUROLOGISTS,
  • 00:17:48.180 --> 00:17:50.010
  • AND PSYCHOLOGISTS,
  • 00:17:50.010 --> 00:17:50.280
  • THEY'LL TELL YOU THAT HUMAN
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:52.110
  • BEINGS THINK OVER ONE HUNDRED
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:54.090
  • THOUSAND THOUGHTS A DAY.
  • 00:17:54.090 --> 00:17:56.150
  • NOW I KNOW FOR SOME OF YOU
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:57.090
  • WIVES,
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:57.270
  • YOU'LL FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:17:59.090
  • THAT A HUSBAND CAN ACTUALLY
  • 00:17:59.090 --> 00:18:00.090
  • DO THAT, BUT IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:02.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:02.100 --> 00:18:03.080
  • BUT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU
  • 00:18:03.080 --> 00:18:04.050
  • CAN COMMUNICATE YOUR THOUGHTS
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:05.110
  • OR THEY'RE ALL INSIDE OF YOU,
  • 00:18:05.110 --> 00:18:07.020
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO TAKE
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:08.080
  • YOUR THOUGHTS CAPTIVE.
  • 00:18:08.230 --> 00:18:11.230
  • THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE TELLS US
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:13.000
  • VERY CLEARLY
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:14.090
  • IN 2 CORINTHIANS 10:5;
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:15.240
  • IT SAYS, "CAST DOWN EVERY
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:17.210
  • VAIN IMAGINATION THAT EXALTS
  • 00:18:17.210 --> 00:18:19.250
  • ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:21.210
  • OF GOD."
  • 00:18:21.210 --> 00:18:23.110
  • IT DOESN'T TAKE A THEOLOGIAN
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:25.020
  • TO KNOW WHAT IS AND WHAT IS
  • 00:18:25.020 --> 00:18:27.000
  • NOT GOD'S KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:18:27.000 --> 00:18:29.280
  • BUT WHEN THOSE THINGS COME
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:30.280
  • INTO YOUR MIND,
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:32.030
  • THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:33.060
  • IS PUT THEM UNDER HOUSE ARREST.
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:36.060
  • YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:37.200
  • IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:40.050
  • NOT BECAUSE I'M SO GOOD THAT
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:42.200
  • I DON'T GET TEMPTED BY THAT,
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:44.190
  • BUT BECAUSE THE GUY THAT YOU
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:45.270
  • USED TO COME AROUND HERE
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:46.260
  • AND TEMPT,
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:47.160
  • HE'S DEAD AND GONE.
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:50.150
  • I'VE BEEN BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:18:50.150 --> 00:18:52.100
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:18:52.100 --> 00:18:53.050
  • I'M OVER HERE
  • 00:18:53.050 --> 00:18:54.150
  • WITH A NEW NATURE
  • 00:18:54.150 --> 00:18:55.180
  • INHERITED FROM JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:18:55.180 --> 00:18:58.030
  • AND RATHER THAN LOOK TO
  • 00:18:58.030 --> 00:18:58.290
  • THE THING I WANT TO DO,
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:00.160
  • I'M GOING TO LOOK TO THE THING
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:01.180
  • THAT HE DID FOR ME.
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:02.270
  • AND I'M GOING TO SAY THAT
  • 00:19:02.270 --> 00:19:03.220
  • I DON'T HAVE TO BE THAT GUY
  • 00:19:03.220 --> 00:19:04.260
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:19:04.260 --> 00:19:06.010
  • (Amen.)
  • 00:19:06.010 --> 00:19:08.270
  • AND THE FINAL THING
  • 00:19:08.270 --> 00:19:09.130
  • THAT YOU HAVE TO DO AND IT'S
  • 00:19:09.130 --> 00:19:10.120
  • WHAT I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:11.170
  • TO DO EACH AND EVERY DAY
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:14.260
  • THAT'S REALLY THE WHOLE
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:15.150
  • PURPOSE OF THIS MESSAGE
  • 00:19:15.150 --> 00:19:16.100
  • RIGHT HERE,
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:18.280
  • "P" PURSUE CHRIST WITH ALL
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:25.040
  • THAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:19:25.040 --> 00:19:26.110
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:27.190
  • PURSUE CHRIST WITH ALL
  • 00:19:28.080 --> 00:19:31.080
  • THAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:19:31.080 --> 00:19:32.290
  • WHY?
  • 00:19:32.290 --> 00:19:35.160
  • BECAUSE THAT'S THE POWER
  • 00:19:35.160 --> 00:19:36.120
  • STRUGGLE.
  • 00:19:36.120 --> 00:19:38.210
  • THAT'S WHAT STARTED IN EDEN.
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:41.190
  • IN EDEN,
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:42.080
  • MAN HAD FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD
  • 00:19:42.080 --> 00:19:44.010
  • AND WE LOST IT.
  • 00:19:44.010 --> 00:19:46.160
  • AND THEN GOD SENT JESUS
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:49.160
  • AND MADE A WAY WHERE THERE
  • 00:19:49.160 --> 00:19:50.110
  • SEEMED TO BE NO WAY
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:51.110
  • WHERE WE COULD GET IT BACK.
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:54.170
  • AND NOW RATHER THAN LOOKING
  • 00:19:54.170 --> 00:19:55.130
  • AT A TREE THAT IS FILLED
  • 00:19:55.130 --> 00:19:56.210
  • WITH OUR TEMPTATIONS,
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:59.190
  • LOOK TO A TREE WHERE THE ONE,
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:01.150
  • WHO KNEW OUR TEMPTATION
  • 00:20:01.150 --> 00:20:03.070
  • AND NEVER SINNED,
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:04.050
  • DIED THAT WE MIGHT LIVE.
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:07.050
  • PURSUE CHRIST WITH ALL YOU
  • 00:20:07.050 --> 00:20:08.190
  • HAVE.
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:09.070
  • WHY?
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:09.270
  • BECAUSE THIS IS NOT THE ONLY
  • 00:20:09.270 --> 00:20:11.020
  • LIFE YOU'RE EVER GOING TO LIVE.
  • 00:20:11.020 --> 00:20:13.250
  • THIS LIFE WILL END.
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:16.130
  • IT'LL END IN DAYS.
  • 00:20:16.130 --> 00:20:17.170
  • IT'LL END IN DECADES.
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:18.200
  • IT'LL END IN YEARS.
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:19.190
  • BUT SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:20:19.190 --> 00:20:20.160
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BREATHE
  • 00:20:20.160 --> 00:20:21.050
  • YOUR LAST.
  • 00:20:21.050 --> 00:20:22.030
  • AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 00:20:22.030 --> 00:20:23.050
  • JESUS FACE TO FACE.
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:25.090
  • (Amen.)
  • 00:20:25.090 --> 00:20:27.230
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THAT
  • 00:20:27.230 --> 00:20:28.210
  • NAILED-PIERCED HAND THAT HUNG
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:30.250
  • ON A CROSS ON YOUR BEHALF
  • 00:20:30.250 --> 00:20:32.110
  • IS GOING TO WIPE THE TEARS
  • 00:20:32.110 --> 00:20:33.150
  • AWAY FROM YOUR EYES.
  • 00:20:33.150 --> 00:20:34.240
  • AND HE'S GOING TO SAY,
  • 00:20:34.240 --> 00:20:36.100
  • YOUR STRUGGLE,
  • 00:20:36.100 --> 00:20:37.050
  • YOUR TRIAL,
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:38.010
  • YOUR TEMPTATION;
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:39.260
  • IT'S OVER.
  • 00:20:40.220 --> 00:20:43.220
  • AND THAT'S GOING TO BE IN AN
  • 00:20:43.220 --> 00:20:44.290
  • ETERNITY WHERE THERE IS NO END,
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:49.240
  • WHERE THERE IS NO PARTING,
  • 00:20:49.240 --> 00:20:52.120
  • WHERE THERE IS NO SORROW,
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:54.210
  • WHERE THERE IS NO SICKNESS,
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:57.040
  • WHERE THERE IS NO STRUGGLE.
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:21:00.110
  • SOME DAY,
  • 00:21:00.110 --> 00:21:00.280
  • MATTHEW HAGEE'S GOING TO LOOK
  • 00:21:00.280 --> 00:21:02.070
  • AT THE ONE WHO DIED FOR HIM.
  • 00:21:02.230 --> 00:21:05.230
  • AND I DON'T WANT TO HAVE
  • 00:21:05.230 --> 00:21:06.190
  • TO EXPLAIN WHY I PICKED
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:08.240
  • FROM THE WRONG TREE.
  • 00:21:08.260 --> 00:21:11.260
  • I WANT TO SAY,
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:12.110
  • THANK YOU FOR GOING TO
  • 00:21:12.110 --> 00:21:13.210
  • THAT TREE,
  • 00:21:13.210 --> 00:21:16.120
  • AND DYING FOR ME,
  • 00:21:16.120 --> 00:21:18.290
  • AND SETTING ME FREE,
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:23.140
  • SO THAT I DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:24.130
  • STRUGGLE WITH THE SHACKLES,
  • 00:21:24.130 --> 00:21:26.240
  • AND THE CHAINS,
  • 00:21:26.240 --> 00:21:27.180
  • AND THE SORROWS OF MY SIN.
  • 00:21:29.050 --> 00:21:32.050
  • SOME DAY HE'S GOING TO LOOK
  • 00:21:32.050 --> 00:21:33.030
  • AT ME.
  • 00:21:33.030 --> 00:21:35.070
  • AND WHEN HE WIPES THE TEARS
  • 00:21:35.070 --> 00:21:36.160
  • FROM MY EYES,
  • 00:21:36.160 --> 00:21:39.130
  • ALL I WANT TO HEAR HIM SAY IS,
  • 00:21:39.130 --> 00:21:40.270
  • "WELL DONE,
  • 00:21:40.270 --> 00:21:43.080
  • GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT."
  • 00:21:43.080 --> 00:21:45.140
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:52.270 --> 00:21:55.270
  • WHICH IS WHY, TODAY,
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:57.180
  • YOU HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND.
  • 00:21:57.180 --> 00:22:00.150
  • STOP LOOKING IN A TREE FILLED
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:01.290
  • WITH TEMPTATION AND LOOK AT
  • 00:22:01.290 --> 00:22:04.130
  • A TREE FILLED WITH SALVATION
  • 00:22:04.130 --> 00:22:07.120
  • WHERE JESUS CHRIST DIED
  • 00:22:07.120 --> 00:22:10.060
  • THAT YOU MIGHT LIVE.
  • 00:22:10.160 --> 00:22:13.160
  • "LOOKING UNTO JESUS,

  • BEFORE HIM,
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:19.190
  • ENDURED THE CROSS,
  • 00:22:19.190 --> 00:22:22.060
  • AND IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:24.030
  • OF GOD THE FATHER."
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:27.040
  • I SAY THIS IN CLOSING;
  • 00:22:27.040 --> 00:22:28.050
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT GOD AND JESUS
  • 00:22:28.050 --> 00:22:30.170
  • ARE TALKING ABOUT TODAY?
  • 00:22:30.170 --> 00:22:33.140
  • YOU!
  • 00:22:33.140 --> 00:22:35.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS
  • 00:22:35.260 --> 00:22:37.080
  • IS INTERCEDING ON YOUR BEHALF.
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:41.030
  • HE'S UP THERE WHISPERING
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:42.060
  • IN GOD'S EAR,
  • 00:22:42.060 --> 00:22:43.050
  • I KNOW WHAT HE'S DEALING WITH.
  • 00:22:43.050 --> 00:22:46.040
  • I KNOW HOW SHE'S STRUGGLING.
  • 00:22:46.040 --> 00:22:47.270
  • I KNOW WHAT THEY NEED.
  • 00:22:47.270 --> 00:22:49.080
  • I'VE BEEN THERE.
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:50.050
  • I'VE FELT IT.
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:54.060
  • AND WHAT I BELIEVE GOD WANTS
  • 00:22:54.060 --> 00:22:55.100
  • TO HEAR FROM YOU TODAY
  • 00:22:55.100 --> 00:22:57.080
  • IS NOT WHAT HIS SON HAS TO SAY
  • 00:22:57.080 --> 00:22:59.100
  • ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:22:59.100 --> 00:23:00.080
  • BUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:01.150
  • TO HIS SON.
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:03.200
  • LORD JESUS, FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:23:04.030 --> 00:23:07.030
  • HEAL ME.
  • 00:23:07.030 --> 00:23:08.210
  • CLEANSE ME.
  • 00:23:08.210 --> 00:23:10.130
  • TAKE THIS TEMPTATION FROM ME
  • 00:23:11.090 --> 00:23:14.090
  • THAT I MIGHT BE PLEASING
  • 00:23:14.090 --> 00:23:15.140
  • IN YOUR SIGHT.
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:18.210
  • CAN WE STAND IN THIS PLACE?
  • 00:23:18.270 --> 00:23:21.270
  • WITH EVERY HEAD BOWED
  • 00:23:21.270 --> 00:23:22.210

  • IN YOUR LIFE YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:23:36.060 --> 00:23:37.100
  • TO CONFESS.
  • 00:23:37.100 --> 00:23:39.200
  • THERE ARE THINGS THAT IF YOU
  • 00:23:39.200 --> 00:23:40.220
  • DON'T LET ME TAKE CARE OF THEM,
  • 00:23:40.220 --> 00:23:42.250
  • THEY WILL DESTROY YOU.
  • 00:23:44.050 --> 00:23:47.050
  • AND RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:23:47.050 --> 00:23:48.190
  • WITH ONE HAND RAISED TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:23:48.190 --> 00:23:50.060

  • AND TRIAL TODAY.
  • 00:23:58.070 --> 00:24:01.090
  • I'M NOT GOING TO ASK YOU
  • 00:24:01.090 --> 00:24:02.040
  • TO THIS ALTAR.
  • 00:24:02.040 --> 00:24:02.270
  • I JUST WANT YOU TO BE HONEST
  • 00:24:02.270 --> 00:24:03.250
  • ENOUGH TO CONFESS BEFORE GOD,
