  • ALL IT DID WAS BURN THE BONDS AROUND
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:22.040
  • THEIR WRISTS.
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:24.240
  • IT DIDN'T SINGE A HAIR ON THEIR BODIES.
  • 00:15:24.270 --> 00:15:27.090
  • IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH STORMS OF WATER, REMEMBER
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:29.150
  • THE STORM CANNOT TAKE YOU WHERE GOD CANNOT
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:32.020
  • KEEP YOU.
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:34.040
  • AND JESUS NEVER SAID IT CAME TO STAY.
  • 00:15:34.070 --> 00:15:38.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IT CAME TO PASS, AND THEY PASSED
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:40.190
  • OVER THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:15:40.220 --> 00:15:43.110
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO TELL YOU TODAY IS THAT IF GOD
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:44.290
  • GAVE YOU JESUS, HE WILL FREELY GIVE YOU
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:46.120

  • RIGHT WILL TRIUMPH.
  • 00:15:50.200 --> 00:15:52.020
  • WE ARE BAFFLED TO FIGHT BETTER.
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:54.010
  • WE SLEEP TO WAKE.
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:55.160
  • WE FALL TO RISE.
  • 00:15:55.190 --> 00:15:57.090
  • WE MIGHT HAVE HELL AROUND US, BUT THE KINGDOM OF
  • 00:15:57.120 --> 00:15:59.060
  • HEAVEN, JESUS SAYS, IS INSIDE OF US.

  • CROWN TOMORROW.
  • 00:16:04.170 --> 00:16:06.290

  • AND I KNOW YOU MIGHT BE IN A STORM TODAY, BUT
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:53.150
  • ISN'T IT INTERESTING, ISN'T IT INTERESTING HOW
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:56.220
  • WHEN JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES WERE IN A STORM
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:58.210
  • JESUS WAS SLEEPING, BUT HERE'S WHAT'S INTERESTING
  • 00:16:58.240 --> 00:17:00.250
  • ABOUT THE STORY TO ME RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:03.060
  • HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED HOW IN THIS STORY WHERE JESUS
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:05.000
  • WAS IN A BOAT SLEEPING DURING A STORM THE WIND
  • 00:17:05.030 --> 00:17:08.020
  • AND THE WAVES COULD NOT WAKE JESUS?
  • 00:17:08.050 --> 00:17:11.140
  • THE WIND AND THE WAVES COULD NOT WAKE JESUS.
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:14.040
  • WHAT WOKE JESUS UP?
  • 00:17:14.070 --> 00:17:15.170
  • THE CRY OF HUMAN NEED.
  • 00:17:15.200 --> 00:17:18.080
  • WHEN PETER -THE DISCIPLES SAID, MASTER, DO YOU NOT
  • 00:17:18.110 --> 00:17:20.220
  • CARE THAT WE PERISH?
  • 00:17:20.250 --> 00:17:22.240
  • THE WIND AND THE WAVES DON'T DISTURB THE LORD.
  • 00:17:22.270 --> 00:17:26.010
  • THEY DON'T SURPRISE THE LORD.
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:27.240
  • THEY DON'T WAKE THE LORD FROM HIS REST.
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:30.070
  • THE WIND AND THE WAVES THEY CAN'T WAKE JESUS.
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:34.180
  • ONLY THE CRY OF HUMAN NEED CAN DO THAT.
  • 00:17:34.210 --> 00:17:37.200
  • ISN'T THAT BEAUTIFUL?
  • 00:17:37.230 --> 00:17:39.220
  • THE WIND AND THE WAVES COULD NOT WAKE JESUS,
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:41.100
  • BUT THE CRY OF HUMAN NEED COULD.
  • 00:17:41.130 --> 00:17:43.050
  • AND I THINK IT'S FASCINATING HOW SOMETIMES
  • 00:17:43.080 --> 00:17:47.020
  • WE GET AFRAID IN OUR STORM, AND THE HAIRS ON
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:52.180
  • OUR NECK START RISING BECAUSE WE'RE SO SCARED
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:55.220
  • THE HAIRS ON OUR NECK RISE, BUT WHENEVER THE
  • 00:17:55.250 --> 00:17:58.050
  • HAIRS ON YOUR NECK RISE THEY'RE JUST GIVING GOD A
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:18:00.070
  • STANDING OVATION.

  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:18:01.240 --> 00:18:03.270

  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.260
  • YOUR STORM.
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:07.290
  • JUST LIKE STEVEN.
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:09.030
  • REMEMBER HOW THE LORD IS ALWAYS LIKE SLEEPING AND
  • 00:18:09.060 --> 00:18:11.260
  • RESTING IN OUR STORMS.
  • 00:18:11.290 --> 00:18:12.280
  • HE'S SO CONFIDENT YOU'RE GOING TO GET TO THE
  • 00:18:13.010 --> 00:18:13.290
  • OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:15.010
  • HERE'S STEVEN WHO'S GETTING ROCKS THROWN AT
  • 00:18:15.040 --> 00:18:16.050
  • HIM AND HE'S DYING, AND THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS
  • 00:18:16.080 --> 00:18:18.000
  • STOOD AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:21.010
  • JESUS NEVER STANDS IN HEAVEN AT THE RIGHT HAND
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:23.200
  • OF THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:18:23.230 --> 00:18:24.220
  • HE'S ALWAYS SEATED, BUT WHY WHEN STEVEN WAS
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:27.210
  • GETTING ROCKS THROWN AT HIM DID HE STAND?
  • 00:18:27.240 --> 00:18:30.130
  • BECAUSE HE WAS GIVING STEVEN A STANDING OVATION.
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:34.020
  • LIKE I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT TO ENTER YOU
  • 00:18:34.050 --> 00:18:36.040
  • INTO THE KINGDOM.
