  • CRASH, BUT AT LEAST I'M GOING TO SEND IT, AND
  • 00:08:55.230 --> 00:08:57.250
  • THEN A FEW YARDS LATER YOU LOOK AT THE ROAD
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:09:00.190
  • AGAIN AND SUDDENLY IT'S GONE.
  • 00:09:00.220 --> 00:09:02.250
  • IT'S VANISHED.
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:03.220
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:04.150
  • IT'S A MIRAGE.
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:05.180
  • YOUR EYE TOLD YOU IT EXISTED, BUT THAT
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:06.220
  • DOESN'T MEAN IT DOES.
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:08.140
  • A LOT OF THE THINGS YOU SEE ACTUALLY AREN'T REAL.
  • 00:09:08.170 --> 00:09:10.260
  • IF YOU DO THIS, IF YOU LIKE CLOSURE EYELID AND
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:14.120
  • YOU PRESS YOUR EYELID REALLY HARD AND THEN YOU
  • 00:09:14.150 --> 00:09:16.180
  • OPEN IT AGAIN, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE TWO OF ME.
  • 00:09:16.210 --> 00:09:18.020
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I'M IN A PARALLAX UNIVERSE.
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:20.040
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN I'M IN A MULTI VERSE AND I'M SOME
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:22.120
  • ALTERNATE DIMENSION IN SOME FAR AWAY GALAXY THAT
  • 00:09:22.150 --> 00:09:25.040
  • IS A PROJECTION OF MY CLONE SELF AS SOME
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:27.130
  • SCIENTISTS THEORIZED ABOUT THE MULTI VERSE.
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:29.060
  • IT'S JUST THAT YOUR EYE IS DECEIVING YOU.
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:31.110
  • THERE'S NOT TWO OF ME, AND WHAT I'M TRYING TO
  • 00:09:31.140 --> 00:09:33.200
  • SAY AS I KIND OF WHACK LYRICAL AND PLUMB THE
  • 00:09:33.230 --> 00:09:36.050
  • DEEPS OF SCIENCE IS THAT SCIENCE IS SHOWING US IS
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:39.090
  • THAT NOT EVERYTHING YOU SEE IS REAL.
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:40.230
  • ON THE CONTRARY, THE CONVERSE IS ALSO TRUE.
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:42.220
  • THE DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED DIRECTION TELLS US THAT A
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:45.050
  • LOT OF THE THINGS YOU CAN'T SEE ARE REAL.
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:47.160
  • FOR EXAMPLE, YOU CANNOT SEE THE WIND, BUT IT'S REAL.
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:50.050
  • WE'VE NEVER SEEN THE WIND.
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:51.080
  • PEOPLE SEE LEAVES RUFFLING AND THEY SAY, I
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:52.280
  • SEE THE WIND.
  • 00:09:53.010 --> 00:09:53.200
  • NO, YOU DON'T.
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:54.210
  • YOU SEE THE EFFECT OF WIND WHICH IS LEAVES
  • 00:09:54.240 --> 00:09:56.090
  • RUFFLING, BUT YOU DO NOT SEE THE WIND ITSELF .
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:10:00.080
  • WE HAVE NEVER SEEN ELECTRICITY.
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:01.230
  • PEOPLE THINK WHEN THEY STICK A FORK IN A SOCKET
  • 00:10:01.260 --> 00:10:03.090
  • AND SPARKS COME OUT THAT THEY'VE SEEN ELECTRICITY.
  • 00:10:03.120 --> 00:10:05.080
  • FIRST OF ALL, THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE IF YOU
  • 00:10:05.110 --> 00:10:07.200
  • STICK YOUR FORK IN A SOCKET, YOU WON'T SEE
  • 00:10:07.230 --> 00:10:09.180
  • ANYTHING AFTER THAT [ LAUGHTER ] BUT SECOND OF
  • 00:10:09.210 --> 00:10:12.210
  • ALL, WHEN YOU STICK YOUR FORK IN A SOCKET YOU ARE
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:15.190
  • SEEING SPARKS WHICH IS A PART OF FIRE WHICH IS,
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:18.160
  • LISTEN, FIRE IS A CONSEQUENCE OF ELECTRICITY,
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:21.060
  • BUT NOBODY'S EVER SEEN ELECTRICITY.
  • 00:10:21.090 --> 00:10:24.000
  • SCIENCE TELLS US ELECTRICITY ITSELF IS
  • 00:10:24.030 --> 00:10:25.290
  • INVISIBLE, YET WE HARNESS ITS POWER INTO A FOCUSED
  • 00:10:26.020 --> 00:10:28.120
  • ENERGY TO WIELD IT FOR OUR I PHONES, BUT WE
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:31.000
  • DON'T KNOW HOW IT WORKS.
  • 00:10:31.030 --> 00:10:32.280
  • FURTHERMORE, WE, LISTEN, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:10:33.010 --> 00:10:36.140
  • GRAVITY IS.
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:37.240
  • REMEMBER BACK TO THE FUTURE WITH
  • 00:10:37.270 --> 00:10:39.120
  • MICHAEL J. FOX WHEN HE WAS RIDING HOVER BOARDS,
  • 00:10:39.150 --> 00:10:41.260
  • AND THESE SKATEBOARDS FLOATED THROUGH THE AIR?
  • 00:10:41.290 --> 00:10:44.110
  • WE THOUGHT BY 2017 WE WOULD HAVE HOVER BOARDS
  • 00:10:44.140 --> 00:10:47.020
  • THAT FLOATED THROUGH THE AIR.
  • 00:10:47.050 --> 00:10:48.160
  • THE PROBLEM IS WE NEVER DEVELOPED THE HOVER
  • 00:10:48.190 --> 00:10:50.240
  • BOARD, AND WHAT MAKES ME REALLY TICKED OFF IS THAT
  • 00:10:50.270 --> 00:10:53.230
  • THE SKATEBOARD COMPANY CREATED A BOARD CALLED A
  • 00:10:53.260 --> 00:10:56.170
  • HOVER BOARD, AND IT DOESN'T HOVER.
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:58.200
  • IT'S JUST A SMART SKATEBOARD, THAT'S ALL IT
  • 00:10:58.230 --> 00:11:01.080
  • IS, BUT IT DOESN'T HOVER.
  • 00:11:01.110 --> 00:11:02.190
  • WHY HAVE WE NOT CREATED A TRUE BONA FIDE HOVER BOARD?
  • 00:11:02.220 --> 00:11:06.130
  • BECAUSE, LISTEN TO THIS, WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT
  • 00:11:06.160 --> 00:11:09.010
  • GRAVITY IS.
  • 00:11:09.040 --> 00:11:10.270
  • NOBODY KNOWS.
  • 00:11:11.000 --> 00:11:12.000
  • THERE ARE SECULAR SCIENTISTS THAT ACTUALLY
  • 00:11:12.030 --> 00:11:13.220
  • ADMIT WE HAVE MORE EVIDENCE FOR THE THEORY
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:18.010
  • OF EVOLUTION THAN WE DO FOR THE THEORY OF GRAVITY.
  • 00:11:18.040 --> 00:11:20.090
  • ALL WE KNOW IS THAT THE GREATER THE MASS THE
  • 00:11:20.120 --> 00:11:22.000
  • GREATER THE GRAVITY.
  • 00:11:22.030 --> 00:11:23.010
  • WE KNOW NOTHING ELSE ABOUT ITS ACTUALLY
  • 00:11:23.040 --> 00:11:24.180
  • INHERENT INTRINSIC EXISTENCE.
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:26.160
  • WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE ELEMENTARY PROPERTIES OF
  • 00:11:26.190 --> 00:11:30.100
  • GRAVITY ARE.
  • 00:11:30.130 --> 00:11:31.100
  • IT'S JUST SOMETHING WE CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:11:31.130 --> 00:11:32.260
  • THE ONLY REASON WE BELIEVE IN GRAVITY IS
  • 00:11:32.290 --> 00:11:34.110
  • BECAUSE THIS HAPPENS, WHEN I JUMP, I FALL.
  • 00:11:34.140 --> 00:11:36.250
  • SO WE'RE LIKE OKAY, WE CALL THAT GRAVITY.
  • 00:11:36.280 --> 00:11:38.170
  • IT'S MYSTICAL.
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:39.220
  • THAT'S WHY GEORGE LUCAS IN STAR WARS CREATED THE
  • 00:11:39.250 --> 00:11:41.260
  • FORCE WHERE YOU MOVE STUFF AROUND THROUGH
  • 00:11:41.290 --> 00:11:43.110
  • GRAVITY, BECAUSE THE GRAVITY ITSELF IS THE
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:45.240
  • FORCE IN STAR WARS.
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:47.100
  • IT'S MYSTICAL.
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:48.070
  • NOBODY KNOWS WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:11:48.100 --> 00:11:50.120
  • NOW, BECAUSE I CAN'T SEE GRAVITY OR PROVE IT, DOES
  • 00:11:50.150 --> 00:11:52.220
  • IT MEAN THAT IT DOESN'T EXIST?
  • 00:11:52.250 --> 00:11:54.210
  • NO.
  • 00:11:54.240 --> 00:11:55.240
  • I HAVE NOT SEEN GRAVITY, BUT I'VE SEEN THE EFFECTS
  • 00:11:55.270 --> 00:11:57.050
  • OF GRAVITY.
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:11:58.120
  • WHEN I WAS SKATE BOARDING, I FELT THE EFFECTS OF GRAVITY.
  • 00:11:58.150 --> 00:12:01.030
  • I CAN'T PROVE IT, BUT I'VE EXPERIENCED IT.
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:03.120
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:08.020
  • I CAN'T SEE GOD, BUT I'VE SEEN HIS EFFECTS.
  • 00:12:08.050 --> 00:12:14.100
  • IF I LOOK AT CREATION, I'M NOT LIKE
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:16.000
  • WOW, THAT IS A HAPPENSTANCE AND
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:17.130
  • CONGLOMERATION AND AMALGAMATION OF
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:18.160
  • FORTUITOUS, ARBITRARY, CAPRICIOUS EVENTS THAT
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:20.150
  • HAPPENED THROUGH SOME HYPOTHETICAL BIG BANG AS
  • 00:12:20.180 --> 00:12:23.060
  • IF THAT ANSWERS ANYTHING.
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:25.290
  • SUDDENLY NOTHING EXPLODED INTO THE UNIVERSE, SOUNDS
  • 00:12:26.020 --> 00:12:28.060
  • A LOT LIKE GENESIS TO ME, BUT BE THAT AS IT MAY --
  • 00:12:28.090 --> 00:12:30.100
  • ONLY GOD IS BEHIND THIS WHOLE THING.
  • 00:12:30.130 --> 00:12:35.180
  • I DON'T LOOK AT CREATION AND SAY, WOW!
  • 00:12:35.210 --> 00:12:37.110
  • THIS IS AN AMAZING COINCIDENCE.
  • 00:12:37.140 --> 00:12:40.030
  • IF I SEE THE MONA LISA, I'M LIKE OKAY, DI VINCI
  • 00:12:40.060 --> 00:12:41.260
  • WAS OBVIOUSLY BEHIND THAT, SO THERE'S A LOT OF
  • 00:12:41.290 --> 00:12:45.000
  • THINGS WE DON'T SEE THAT ARE REAL, AND WHEN YOU
  • 00:12:45.030 --> 00:12:48.230
  • CAN'T SEE HOPE, THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT REAL.
  • 00:12:48.260 --> 00:12:51.230
  • PAUL SAYS IF YOU CAN SEE HOPE, YOU KNOW IT'S NOT REAL.
  • 00:12:51.260 --> 00:12:54.130
  • HOPE THAT IS SEEN IS NOT HOPE.
  • 00:12:54.160 --> 00:12:57.090
  • IF YOU'RE WALKING BY SIGHT, THEN YOUR FAITH
  • 00:12:57.120 --> 00:12:58.250
  • ISN'T GOING TO WORK, BECAUSE WE DON'T WALK BY
  • 00:12:58.280 --> 00:13:00.090
  • SIGHT, WE WALK BY FAITH.
  • 00:13:00.120 --> 00:13:02.030
  • IT'S WHEN YOU CAN'T SEE THE STUFF, THAT'S WHEN
  • 00:13:02.060 --> 00:13:03.190
  • ITS REALITY TRULY KICKS IN.
  • 00:13:03.220 --> 00:13:06.160
  • ARE YOU TRACKING WITH ME?
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:09.050
  • SO WE SEE THIS IN THE LIFE OF JESUS.
  • 00:13:09.080 --> 00:13:11.000
  • I'M GOING TO DESCEND THE PLANE HERE.
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:12.140
  • LISTEN, IN THE LIFE OF JESUS WE SEE THIS SO CLEARLY.
  • 00:13:12.170 --> 00:13:15.180
  • JESUS WHEN HE HEARD AT THE MOUNT OF
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:18.110
  • TRANSFIGURATION IN MATTHEW 17, THIS IS MY
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:21.210
  • BELOVED SON IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED, WHEN JESUS
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:25.030
  • HEARD, THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM I AM WELL
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:27.190
  • PLEASED, HE HEARD THOSE WORDS AT THE PINNACLE AND
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:30.080
  • PEAK OF MOUNT HERMON.
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:32.260
  • MOUNT HERMON GEOGRAPHICALLY IS THE
  • 00:13:32.290 --> 00:13:35.170
  • TALLEST PEAK IN ALL OF ISRAEL GEOLOGICALLY.
  • 00:13:35.200 --> 00:13:38.080
  • BUT LISTEN, JESUS HEARD THIS IS MY, BELOVED SON
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:41.240
  • IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED, AT THE TOP OF
  • 00:13:41.270 --> 00:13:43.180
  • MOUNT HERMON, THE HIGHEST PEAK IN ALL OF
  • 00:13:43.210 --> 00:13:45.220
  • ISRAEL, BUT THERE WAS ONE OTHER TIME JESUS HEARD
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:48.190
  • THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED,
  • 00:13:48.220 --> 00:13:51.030
  • AND WHEN WAS THAT?
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:52.200
  • WHEN HE WAS BAPTIZED?
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:53.200
  • WHERE WAS HE BAPTIZED?
  • 00:13:53.230 --> 00:13:54.210
  • IN THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:55.210
  • WHERE IS THE JORDAN RIVER?
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:13:56.260
  • IT IS RIGHT NEXT TO AND ADJACENT TO THE DEAD SEA.
  • 00:13:56.290 --> 00:13:59.150
  • WHAT IS THE DEAD SEA?
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:00.190
  • THE DEAD SEA IS THE LOWEST PLACE
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:04.060
  • GEOGRAPHICALLY NOT JUST IN ISRAEL, IT IS THE
  • 00:14:04.090 --> 00:14:05.190
  • LOWEST POINT ON PLANET EARTH.
  • 00:14:05.220 --> 00:14:07.070
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:10.260
  • THAT'S WHERE HE HEARS, THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN
  • 00:14:10.290 --> 00:14:12.050
  • WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED, IN THE VALLEY OF THE
  • 00:14:12.080 --> 00:14:14.050
  • SHADOW OF DEATH, NEXT TO THE DEAD SEA WHERE HE'S
  • 00:14:14.080 --> 00:14:17.120
  • BURIED IN THE WATER.
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:21.010
  • SO HE HEARS, YOU ARE MY BELOVED SON, I'M SO
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:23.070
  • PLEASED WITH YOU, WHEN HE'S AT HIS PEAK
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:25.100
  • PERFORMANCE, WHEN HE'S AT THE TOP OF MOUNT HERMON,
  • 00:14:25.130 --> 00:14:28.240
  • AT THE VERY PINNACLE, I'M AT MY PEAK PERFORMANCE.
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:31.150
  • I'M METAMORPHOSIZED, METAMORPHOS IN THE
  • 00:14:31.180 --> 00:14:34.220
  • GREEK, LIKE A CATERPILLAR TO A BUTTERFLY, WE SAW A
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:37.090
  • SNEAK PREVIEW OF COMING ATTRACTIONS BEING WHEN
  • 00:14:37.120 --> 00:14:40.100
  • HIS GLORY WAS MADE MANIFEST ON THE TOP OF
  • 00:14:40.130 --> 00:14:42.040
  • MOUNT HERMON, AND AT HIS PEAR PERFORMANCE WHEN
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:43.270
  • HE'S GLORIFIED, THE FATHER SAYS, YOU'RE MY
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:46.120
  • BELOVED SON, AND I'M SO PLEASED WITH YOU!
  • 00:14:46.150 --> 00:14:48.090
  • BUT THE OTHER TIME HE HEARS IT IS WHEN HE HAD
  • 00:14:48.120 --> 00:14:50.110
  • NEVER DONE A MIRACLE, NEVER DONE A MIRACLE.
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:53.080
  • HE WAS GETTING BURIED BY A GUY WITH A CRAZY BEARD
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:58.090
  • EATING LOCUSTS, AT THE LOWEST POINT ON PLANET
  • 00:14:58.120 --> 00:15:03.000
  • EARTH NEXT TO THE DEAD SEA AT THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:06.140
  • JESUS HEARD THE FATHER SAY I AM SO PLEASED WITH YOU.
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:10.210
  • YOU ARE MY CHILD, NOT JUST AT HIS PEAK
  • 00:15:10.240 --> 00:15:13.070
  • PERFORMANCE BUT IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF
  • 00:15:13.100 --> 00:15:15.080
  • DEATH WHEN HE WAS BEING BURIED TO SPEAK OF HIS DEATH.
  • 00:15:15.110 --> 00:15:22.040
  • AND THE FATHER WHO HAS THIS BEAUTIFUL MOTHERHOOD
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.250
  • SIDE TO HIM IS NOT JUST PLEASED WITH YOU,
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:25.220
  • HIS CHILD, WHEN YOU'RE AT YOUR PEAK PERFORMANCE.
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:27.290
  • HE'S JUST AS PLEASED WITH YOU WHEN YOU'RE AT YOUR

  • BOTTOM, WHEN YOU'RE IN THE VALLEY OF THE

  • SHADOW OF DEATH.
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:33.130
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:34.250
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS CHRIST IN YOU IS THE HOPE
  • 00:15:34.280 --> 00:15:36.010
  • OF GLORY, SO IF JESUS IS IN YOU AND THE FATHER IS
  • 00:15:36.040 --> 00:15:38.060
  • ALWAYS PLEASED WITH HIM WHETHER HE'S AT HIS PEAK
  • 00:15:38.090 --> 00:15:40.080
