  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:00.220 --> 00:00:34.170
  • - BEN COURSON: ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I LIKE TO DO
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:36.230
  • IS REMEMBER THAT PSALM 8 SAYS GOD MADE THE STARS
  • 00:00:36.260 --> 00:00:39.110
  • WITH HIS FINGERS, 'KAY?
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:41.080
  • BUT ISAIAH SAYS, "ON MY ARM SHALL THEY TRUST."
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:45.060
  • IF HIS FINGERS CAN MAKE STARS,
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:48.120
  • THINK WHAT HIS ARM CAN DO.
  • 00:00:48.150 --> 00:00:51.040
  • AND, YET, IT'S IN HIS ARM THAT YOU TRUST.
  • 00:00:51.070 --> 00:00:54.250
  • HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD?
  • 00:00:54.280 --> 00:00:58.210
  • JESUS TURNS THE TOMB INTO A WOMB, THE CASKET INTO A CRADLE,
  • 00:00:58.240 --> 00:01:02.150
  • THE BURIAL PLACE INTO A BIRTH PLACE
  • 00:01:02.180 --> 00:01:04.190
  • BECAUSE WE ARE GOD'S SONS BY BIRTH, NOT BY WORTH
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:08.010
  • AND WE INHERIT HIS EVERLASTING IMMORTAL DNA.
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:11.210
  • WE'RE GONNA LIVE FOREVER.
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:13.070
  • THIS IS BEN COURSON AND YOU'RE WATCHING HOPE GENERATION.
  • 00:01:13.100 --> 00:01:16.150
  • TODAY'S EPISODE IS DUBBED TOMB WOMB.
  • 00:01:16.180 --> 00:01:21.200
  • THERE'S A VOLCANO ON MARS THAT IS NOT JUST ANY VOLCANO,
  • 00:01:21.230 --> 00:01:25.230
  • IT'S SO BIG THAT IT DWARFS MOUNT EVEREST.
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:29.260
  • LIKE, MOUNT EVEREST LOOKS DINKY COMPARED
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:32.020
  • TO A VOLCANO CALLED MOUNT OLYMPUS ON MARS, AS WE SPEAK.
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:36.280
  • HOW CRAZY IS THAT?
  • 00:01:37.010 --> 00:01:38.030
  • IF YOU WERE THERE WITH TENZING NORGAY
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:41.010
  • AND SIR EDMUND HILLARY IN 1953 WHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:01:41.040 --> 00:01:43.150
  • "IT IS NOT THE MOUNTAIN WE CONQUER, BUT OURSELVES,"
  • 00:01:43.180 --> 00:01:45.180
  • AS THEY CLIMBED TO THE TOP OF EVEREST.
  • 00:01:45.210 --> 00:01:47.050
  • IF YOU'RE ON EVEREST, IT'S VERY AWE-INSPIRING.
  • 00:01:47.080 --> 00:01:49.150
  • IT'S HARD NOT TO BELIEVE IN GOD,
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:50.260
  • I WOULD IMAGINE, IF YOU'RE ON THE TOP OF MOUNT EVEREST.
  • 00:01:50.290 --> 00:01:54.100
  • BUT, MOUNT EVEREST IS A PIPSQUEAK COMPARED
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.200
  • TO A VOLCANO ON MARS CALLED MOUNT OLYMPUS.
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:59.090
  • WE'RE JUST DISCOVERING THIS AND THE PSALM IS SAYING
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:01.160
  • THIS IS ALL SHOWING.
  • 00:02:01.190 --> 00:02:02.270
  • OUTER SPACE IS SHOWING, THE FIRMAMENT, THE HEAVENS,
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:05.140
  • IT'S SHOWING HOW BIG YOUR GOD IS.
  • 00:02:05.170 --> 00:02:07.140
  • YOUR GOD IS SO AMAZING AND SO BIG
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:09.180
  • THAT HE MAKES SHOOTING STARS.
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:11.000
  • BUT, DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHOOTING STARS ACTUALLY ARE?
  • 00:02:11.030 --> 00:02:13.150
  • SOMETIMES THEY'RE METEORS AND COMETS
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:14.290
  • THAT ARE PASSING THROUGH OUR LINE OF SIGHT.
  • 00:02:15.020 --> 00:02:19.020
  • BUT, SOMETIMES, WHAT A SHOOTING STAR IS--
  • 00:02:19.050 --> 00:02:23.000
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE SEEN A SHOOTING STAR IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.180
  • RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU HAVE.
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:26.030
  • A SHOOTING STAR, SOMETIMES, IS NOTHING MORE
  • 00:02:26.060 --> 00:02:29.030
  • THAN A COMETARY GRAIN OF FLUFF.
  • 00:02:29.060 --> 00:02:31.250
  • IT'S THE SIZE OF A GRAIN OF SAND.
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:34.210
  • IT COMES FROM COMETS.
  • 00:02:34.240 --> 00:02:35.290
  • IT'S JUST COMETARY FLUFF, THE SIZE OF A GRAIN OF SAND.
  • 00:02:36.020 --> 00:02:38.030
  • WHAT IT DOES IS THIS COMETARY FLUFF GRAIN OF SAND
  • 00:02:38.060 --> 00:02:42.070
  • WILL MOVE AT SUCH INTENSE SPEEDS,
  • 00:02:42.100 --> 00:02:44.250
  • PERHAPS FROM THE OORT CLOUD.
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:46.150
  • IT MOVES AT SUCH INTENSE SPEEDS,
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:48.070
  • THAT WHEN IT ENTERS INTO OUR ATMOSPHERE, IT BURNS UP.
  • 00:02:48.100 --> 00:02:51.200
  • WHEN IT BURNS UP AT NIGHT, IT LEAVES A TAIL OF LIGHT
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:54.200
  • SO IT LOOKS LIKE A SHOOTING STAR.
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:56.240
  • BUT IT'S NOTHING MORE THAN A COMETARY FLUFF,
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:02:59.200
  • LITTLE GRAIN OF SAND.
  • 00:02:59.230 --> 00:03:01.060
  • BECAUSE GOD IS SO BIG THAT HE CAN TURN A GRAIN
  • 00:03:01.090 --> 00:03:03.290
  • OF SAND INTO A STAR.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.100
  • SO, DO YOU NOT THINK IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:06.140
  • HE CAN TURN YOUR SCARS INTO STARS?
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:12.200
  • GOD'S SO BIG, IT DOESN'T STOP THERE.
  • 00:03:12.230 --> 00:03:14.100
  • LET ME SAY JUST A COUPLE MORE THINGS.
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:15.200
  • GOD'S SO BIG, THAT HE MAKES MOONS ON JUPITER.
  • 00:03:15.230 --> 00:03:18.240
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT MOST MOONS, OBVIOUSLY,
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:20.250
  • ARE LIKE BOWLING BALLS, THEY'RE SPHERICAL IN SHAPE AND SIZE?
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:23.170
  • BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT ON JUPITER,
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:26.200
  • IT HAS SUCH STRONG GRAVITY, IT'S ONE OF THE GAS GIANTS.
  • 00:03:26.230 --> 00:03:29.140
  • USUALLY, THESE GAS GIANTS HAVE A CENTER OF ROCK AND ICE.
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:33.170
  • BUT THESE GAS GIANTS, REMEMBER THE BIGGER THE MASS,
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:37.050
  • THE BIGGER THE GRAVITY.
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:39.030
  • AND JUPITER IS SUCH A HUGE GAS GIANT
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:41.100
  • THAT WHAT IT'LL DO IS IT'LL CAUSE THE MOONS
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:44.260
  • IN CLOSE ORBIT AROUND ITS CENTER
  • 00:03:44.290 --> 00:03:47.290
  • TO ACTUALLY BECOME OBLONG IN SIZE.
  • 00:03:48.020 --> 00:03:50.230
  • BECAUSE JUPITER'S GRAVITY IS ACTUALLY TEARING
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:54.130
  • ITS CLOSER MOONS APART.
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:56.050
  • THE CLOSER MOONS IN ITS ORBIT, JUPITER HAS MANY MOONS,
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:59.050
  • IT'S ACTUALLY TEARING THESE MOONS APART.
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:03.000
  • SO THE MOONS ARE OBLONG IN SHAPE AS OPPOSED TO SPHERICAL
  • 00:04:03.030 --> 00:04:07.040
  • BECAUSE GRAVITY IS TEARING THEM APART AS WE SPEAK.
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:09.050
  • GOD'S LIKE, "YUP, I LIKE TO PUT POTATO-SIZED MOONS
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:11.120
  • "ON MARS AND OBLONG-SIZE MOONS ON JUPITER
  • 00:04:11.150 --> 00:04:14.240
  • "'CAUSE I'M CREATIVE."
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:17.070
  • I LOVE HOW WHEN YOU LOOK AT EVEN HOW GOD CREATED
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:21.090
  • OUR ATMOSPHERE.
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:23.260
  • LISTEN TO THIS, IT IS A MIRACLE THAT WE ARE EVEN ABLE
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:27.020
  • TO LIVE RIGHT NOW WITHOUT BURNING UP.
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:29.180
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:04:29.210 --> 00:04:31.070
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU'RE AN ASTRONAUT,
  • 00:04:31.100 --> 00:04:32.210
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS,
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:33.270
  • BUT IF YOU'RE AN ASTRONAUT, YOU'RE ONLY ALLOWED TO GO
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:35.220
  • TO SPACE A CERTAIN NUMBER OF TIMES.
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:39.220
  • LIKE, BUZZ ALDRIN, FOR EXAMPLE, WENT A COUPLE TIMES.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.240
  • BUZZ ALDRIN, HE WALKED IN SPACE FOR FIVE HOURS
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.280
  • AND 37 MINUTES.
  • 00:04:44.010 --> 00:04:44.260
  • HE DID A SPACE WALK.
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:46.140
  • BUT, BUZZ ALDRIN, LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:48.020
  • HE WAS ALSO THE SECOND GUY TO WALK ON THE MOON.
  • 00:04:48.050 --> 00:04:51.070
  • BUT AN ASTRONAUT LIKE BUZZ ALDRIN,
  • 00:04:51.100 --> 00:04:53.000
  • YOU'RE ONLY ALLOWED TO GO TO SPACE
  • 00:04:53.030 --> 00:04:54.070
  • A CERTAIN NUMBER OF TIMES, WHY?
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.150
  • THIS IS CRAZY.
  • 00:04:55.180 --> 00:04:56.200
  • BECAUSE EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE,
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:05:00.120
  • YOU ARE ACTUALLY EXPOSING YOURSELF
  • 00:05:00.150 --> 00:05:03.080
  • TO COSMIC RAYS AND GENETIC DAMAGE
  • 00:05:03.110 --> 00:05:05.160
  • FROM THE RADIATION OF THE G2 DWARF,
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:07.080
  • WHICH IS THE ENGINE OF LIFE IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, THE SUN.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:10.290
  • MEANING THAT THE SUN IS THIS RADIOACTIVE BALL
  • 00:05:11.020 --> 00:05:13.270
  • THAT IS CONSTANTLY EMITTING RAYS
  • 00:05:14.000 --> 00:05:15.290
  • THAT ARE DAMAGING TO YOUR HEALTH AND WILL ACTUALLY--
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:19.030
  • EVERY TIME YOU GO OUT INTO SPACE,
  • 00:05:19.060 --> 00:05:20.240
  • IF YOU GO OUT A CERTAIN NUMBER OF TIMES TO SPACE,
  • 00:05:20.270 --> 00:05:23.020
  • YOUR RISK OF CANCER SKYROCKETS, PUN INTENDED.
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:27.120
  • AND EVERY TIME YOU GO INTO SPACE,
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.240
  • YOUR RISK OF CANCER SKYROCKETS, WHY?
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:30.130
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE OUTSIDE OF THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.180
  • AND THEN YOU EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE RADIATION
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:35.110
  • GENETIC COSMIC DAMAGE FROM THE SUN.
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:37.220
  • YOU SAY, "WHY ARE YOU POINTING THIS OUT?"
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:39.080
  • BECAUSE WHEN GOD CREATED THE EARTH,
  • 00:05:39.110 --> 00:05:41.130
  • IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS, HE SAID, "IT IS GOOD."
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:45.190
  • BECAUSE WHAT GOD DID,
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:46.250
  • THIS IS THE PROTECTIVE PROVIDENTIAL LOVING HAND OF GOD.
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:49.110
  • HE PUT AN ATMOSPHERE AROUND EARTH THAT PROTECTS US
  • 00:05:49.140 --> 00:05:54.090
  • FROM THE GENETIC COSMIC DAMAGING RAYS OF RADIATION
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:05:58.020
  • FROM THE SUN SO THAT WE CAN LIVE
  • 00:05:58.050 --> 00:05:59.220
  • WITH WARMTH AND YET NOT RADIATION.
  • 00:05:59.250 --> 00:06:03.220
  • THAT'S GOD.
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:04.290
  • THE HEAVENS, LOOK AT HOW THEY DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:08.140
  • AND THEN THERE'S LIGHT.
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:09.110
  • WOULD YOU TURN REALLY QUICK
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:10.070
  • TO 1 JOHN CHAPTER ONE, VERSE FIVE?
  • 00:06:10.100 --> 00:06:13.050
  • I LOVE HOW LIGHT IS OUT THERE IN THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:17.170
  • THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO GET.
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:18.160
  • THERE'S LIGHT EVERYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:06:18.190 --> 00:06:19.280
  • WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:21.080
  • TAKE A LOOK AT 1 JOHN CHAPTER ONE VERSE FIVE, THIS IS HUGE.
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:26.100
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HOW BIG OUR GOD IS.
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:28.100
  • LIKE, HE CREATES OBLONG MARS, OBLONG MOONS ON JUPITER,
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:33.090
  • POTATO-SIZED MOONS AROUND MARS, AN ATMOSPHERE.
  • 00:06:33.120 --> 00:06:38.010
  • THE LOVING HAND OF GOD PROTECTS US
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:39.130
  • FROM THE GENETIC DAMAGING RAYS FROM THE SUN.
  • 00:06:39.160 --> 00:06:41.200
  • SO, WHEN WE LEAVE THIS PLANET WE THEN
  • 00:06:41.230 --> 00:06:43.290
  • EXPOSE OURSELVES TO CANCER.
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:46.000
  • WHEN WE LOOK AT HOW GOD CREATED A COMETARY GRAIN OF FLUFF
  • 00:06:46.030 --> 00:06:49.210
  • THE SIZE OF A GRAIN OF SAND THAT CAN LOOK
  • 00:06:49.240 --> 00:06:51.200
  • LIKE A SHOOTING STAR TO OUR EYES
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:53.060
  • BECAUSE IT BURNS UP UPON ENTERING OUR ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:06:53.090 --> 00:06:55.090
  • AT SUCH HIGH SPEEDS.
  • 00:06:55.120 --> 00:06:56.070
  • WHEN WE LOOK AT MOUNT OLYMPUS ON MARS,
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:06:58.200
  • THIS ALL DECLARES THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:06:58.230 --> 00:07:00.290
  • BUT THEN, ONE OF THE BEST THINGS GOD MADE
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:04.120
  • IN ALL OF THE UNIVERSE THAT DECLARES HIS GLORY IS LIGHT.
  • 00:07:04.150 --> 00:07:07.000
  • TAKE A LOOK AT THIS, 1 JOHN CHAPTER ONE,
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:09.130
  • VERSE FIVE, LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:10.200
  • HE SAYS, "THIS, THEN, IS THE MESSAGE WHICH WE HAVE HEARD
  • 00:07:10.230 --> 00:07:14.070
  • "OF HIM AND DECLARE UNTO YOU.
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:16.250
  • "THAT GOD IS LIGHT AND IN HIM THERE IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL."
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:21.130
  • NOW, WHAT YOU HAVE TO GET IS ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:23.120
  • GOD'S COMPARED TO LIGHT.
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:25.040
  • SO, JAMES 1:27 SAYS, "PURE AND UNDEFILED RELIGION
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:29.060
  • "BEFORE GOD AND THE FATHER IS THIS,
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:30.180
  • "TO TAKE CARE OF ORPHANS AND WIDOWS IN THEIR TIME OF NEED
  • 00:07:30.210 --> 00:07:33.000
  • "AND TO REMAIN UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD."
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.250
  • BUT A FEW VERSES EARLIER IN JAMES 1:17,
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:37.170
  • HE TALKS ABOUT GOD BEING PURE AND UNSPOTTED.
  • 00:07:37.200 --> 00:07:39.240
  • HE SAYS, "EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT COMES
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:41.240
  • "FROM ABOVE FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS
  • 00:07:41.270 --> 00:07:45.070
  • "IN WHOM THERE IS NO SHADOW OF TURNING."
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:46.260
  • WHAT'S HE SAYING?
  • 00:07:46.290 --> 00:07:47.260
  • GOD IS THE FATHER OF LIGHTS
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:50.020
  • AND HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY DARK SIDE.
  • 00:07:50.050 --> 00:07:53.080
  • HE'S NOT A SITH.
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:54.180
  • HE'S NOT JAR JAR BINKS, WHO YOU THINK HE'S PART OF THE LIGHT
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:56.200

  • 00:08:32.160 --> 00:08:35.130
  • THE CHAIR YOU'RE SITTING ON IS ACTUALLY LIKE A SNOW FLURRY
  • 00:08:35.160 --> 00:08:38.060
  • OF A BUNCH OF PARTICLES BOUNCING OFF EACH OTHER
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:40.100

  • WHY IS THAT INTERESTING?
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:18.260
  • BECAUSE GOD SAYS, "I'M LIGHT."
  • 00:09:18.290 --> 00:09:22.100
  • EVEN WHEN YOUR WORLD, YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SOLID
  • 00:09:22.130 --> 00:09:24.180

  • 00:10:06.270 --> 00:10:08.270
  • "LET THERE BE LIGHT?"
  • 00:10:09.000 --> 00:10:11.000
  • IT'S THE FIRST THING HE EVER SAID.

  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:42.180
  • "BECAUSE 96% OF THE UNIVERSE IS MADE UP OF BLACK HOLES,

  • IN EVERY SINGLE INCH,

  • WELL, I GUESS YOU GUYS ARE SLOW TURNERS.
  • 00:15:17.160 --> 00:15:19.110
  • IF YOU'RE IN ROMANS 8:11 WOULD YOU PLEASE SAY, "TOMB WOMB."
  • 00:15:19.140 --> 00:15:23.170
  • OKAY, ROMANS 8:11 SAYS, "BUT IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:27.040
  • "THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELL IN YOU,
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:30.250
  • "HE THAT RAISED UP CHRIST FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:15:30.280 --> 00:15:32.160
  • "SHALL ALSO QUICKEN YOUR IMMORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:35.180
  • "THAT DWELLETH IN YOU."
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:37.230
  • SO, IN OUR FIRST TEXT, WE READ,
  • 00:15:37.260 --> 00:15:39.140
  • "THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD."
  • 00:15:39.170 --> 00:15:41.110
  • IN OUR SECOND TEXT, WE READ THAT GOD
  • 00:15:41.140 --> 00:15:43.020
  • IS THE ONE STABLE ELEMENT IN EXISTENCE.
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:44.240
  • HE IS LIGHT.
  • 00:15:44.270 --> 00:15:46.000
  • BUT, IN THE THIRD TEXT WE NOW READ THAT THE SAME SPIRIT
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:49.100
  • THAT CREATED EVERYTHING IS ACTUALLY LIVING INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:55.140
  • SO, THE QUESTION ISN'T WHERE CAN,
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:57.030
  • LIKE, WHEN I'M FLEEING FROM MY PROBLEMS,
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.190
  • WHERE'S YOUR PRESENCE?
  • 00:15:58.220 --> 00:15:59.230
  • GOD'S LIKE, "WHERE CAN YOU FLEE FROM MY PRESENCE?
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:01.290
  • "WHEREVER YOU GO, I GO."
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:04.160
  • IT'S BEEN SAID THAT WHEN A MAN HAS LIMBURGER CHEESE
  • 00:16:04.190 --> 00:16:07.250
  • IN HIS MUSTACHE, THE WHOLE WORLD STINKS.
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:14.290
  • AND IF YOU'RE WALKING AROUND WITH YOUR PROBLEMS
  • 00:16:15.020 --> 00:16:16.290
  • UNDER YOUR NOSE ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:16:17.020 --> 00:16:18.250
  • "MY JOB STINKS, MY RELATIONSHIPS STINK,
  • 00:16:18.280 --> 00:16:21.080
  • "MY LIFE STINKS, MY PSYCHOSIS STINKS,"
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:24.210
  • THEN EVERYTHING'S GONNA STINK
  • 00:16:24.240 --> 00:16:25.180
  • 'CAUSE YOU BRING THE STINK WITH YOU.
  • 00:16:25.210 --> 00:16:27.270
  • BUT WHEN YOU SAY, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:29.000
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT I BRING WITH ME EVERYWHERE I GO
  • 00:16:29.030 --> 00:16:30.090
  • "AS A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:31.120
  • "I'M A HOLY OF HOLIES ON THE GO?"
  • 00:16:31.150 --> 00:16:33.010
  • AS A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:34.060
  • I CARRY GOD WITH ME EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:36.270
  • THIS IS WHAT HE SAYS, THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:16:37.000 --> 00:16:39.230
  • THAT RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:16:39.260 --> 00:16:43.020
  • IS ACTUALLY LIVING IN YOU TO GIVE LIFE
  • 00:16:43.050 --> 00:16:45.010
  • TO YOUR MORTAL BODIES, TO QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES.
  • 00:16:45.040 --> 00:16:47.110
  • THERE IS LIFE BEYOND DEATH.
  • 00:16:47.140 --> 00:16:49.030
  • BUT EVEN NOW, THAT SPIRIT IS LIVING IN YOU AS WE SPEAK.
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:53.260
  • HE TURNS THE TOMB INTO A WOMB.
  • 00:16:53.290 --> 00:16:55.260
  • IT'S A TOMB WOMB.
  • 00:16:55.290 --> 00:16:56.280
  • COLOSSIANS 1:15 SAYS THAT JESUS
  • 00:16:57.010 --> 00:16:58.210
  • IS THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:16:58.240 --> 00:17:00.190
  • THAT'S COLOSSIANS 1:15 AND 18, HE'S THE FIRSTBORN
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:03.160
  • FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:04.210
  • HE ACTUALLY USES DEATH LIKE A SEED USES DEATH.
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:08.150
  • A SEED IS BURIED LIKE A DEAD BODY,
  • 00:17:08.180 --> 00:17:10.280
  • LIKE A CORPSE THAT'S BURIED SIX FEET UNDER.
  • 00:17:11.010 --> 00:17:13.240
  • A SEED IS BURIED AND YOU COVER IT IN DIRT
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:15.270
  • LIKE YOU DO TO A DEAD BODY.
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:17.090
  • BUT IT'S THEN THAT THE SEED GERMINATES AND BEGINS TO BURGEON
  • 00:17:17.120 --> 00:17:21.000
  • AND GETS BACTERIA THAT CAN PRODUCE 30 FOLD,
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:23.100
  • 60 FOLD, 100 FOLD FRUIT.
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:25.030
  • A SEED, BY BEING BURIED, ACTUALLY GIVES RESURRECTED LIFE.
  • 00:17:25.060 --> 00:17:29.060
  • THAT'S WHY I LOVE HOW EASTER'S IN SPRING.
  • 00:17:29.090 --> 00:17:30.180
  • IT'S THE TIME OF RESURRECTION.
  • 00:17:30.210 --> 00:17:32.060
  • NEW LEAVES, NEW PLANTS, NEW GREEN,
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:37.020
  • BORN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:39.010
  • JESUS IS THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:41.160
  • HE USES THE BURIAL PLACE LIKE A BIRTH PLACE.
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:43.280
  • HE USES THE TOMB LIKE A WOMB.
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:46.020
  • HE BEAT DEATH WITH A STICK.
  • 00:17:46.050 --> 00:17:48.020
  • HE TURNS THE CASKET INTO A CRADLE.
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:50.180
  • "IF A SEED BE BURIED," JESUS SAID,
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:52.030
  • "IT WILL BRING NEW LIFE.
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:53.100
  • SO, TOO, WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE DEAD,
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:55.190
  • THAT'S WHEN THE SPIRIT SAYS,
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:56.210
  • "YOU WATCH HOW I'M GONNA BRING YOU RESURRECTION."
  • 00:17:56.240 --> 00:18:00.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:00.220 --> 00:18:04.030
  • CAN WE PLEASE GIVE GOD A BIG SHOUT OF PRAISE?
  • 00:18:04.060 --> 00:18:06.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:06.180 --> 00:18:07.280
  • IT'S WHAT HE DOES, BUT LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:11.090
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO ACHIEVE THEM TO RECEIVE THEM.
  • 00:18:11.120 --> 00:18:13.180
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO BEHAVE AND GET SAVED,
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:14.230
  • YOU BELIEVE AND RECEIVE.
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:17.020
  • THIS SPIRIT THAT WAS ON IN JESUS THAT MADE THE UNIVERSE
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:20.280
  • IS ALIVE IN YOU TODAY.
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:26.030
  • I JUST LOVE READING THE STORIES OF JESUS,
  • 00:18:26.060 --> 00:18:28.040
  • THE BIOGRAPHY OF JESUS, 'CAUSE IT SHOWS YOU HIS POWER.
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:32.070
  • THAT SPIRIT'S IN YOU.
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:35.220
  • DO YOU REMEMBER THAT STORY OF JESUS
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:37.020
  • WHEN HE WAS AT CANA OF GALILEE PERFORMING HIS FIRST MIRACLE?
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:40.220
  • IT'S TRUE, WE WOULD'VE BEEN HAPPIER
  • 00:18:40.250 --> 00:18:42.090
  • IF JESUS TURNED WINE INTO WATER,
  • 00:18:42.120 --> 00:18:44.060
  • BUT INSTEAD HE TURNED WATER INTO WINE.
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:47.290
  • HIS FIRST MIRACLE IS, LIKE,
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:49.070
  • HE GETS THERE TO CANA OF GALILEE AND HIS MOTHER, MARY,
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:52.130
  • SAYS, "SON, THEY HAVE NO WINE."
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:57.020
  • SUCH A MOM THING TO SAY.
  • 00:18:57.050 --> 00:18:58.050
  • IT'S LIKE, "THEY HAVE NO WINE?"
  • 00:18:58.080 --> 00:19:00.170
  • IS THAT A QUESTION, A REQUEST, A SUGGESTION, OR A COMMAND?
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:05.170
  • LIKE, "SON, THEY HAVE NO WINE,
  • 00:19:05.200 --> 00:19:06.250
  • "SURE WISH I KNEW A MIRACLE WORKER
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:08.010
  • "WHO COULD MAKE SOME MORE."
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:09.290
  • BUT IT'S LIKE, WHAT IS SHE REALLY SAYING?
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:12.000
  • AND JESUS SAID, "WOMAN, MY TIME IS NOT YET COME."
  • 00:19:12.030 --> 00:19:14.100
  • BY THE WAY, JESUS CALLED HIS MOTHER WOMAN,
  • 00:19:14.130 --> 00:19:16.120
  • THAT WAS A TERM OF ENDEARMENT IN THAT TIME.
  • 00:19:16.150 --> 00:19:19.170
  • FRIENDS, IF YOU CALL YOUR MOM, LIKE,
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:20.270
  • "WOMAN, MAKE ME A SANDWICH,"
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.060
  • SHE'S GONNA SEND YOU TO SEE JESUS VERY SOON.
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:26.260
  • BUT, "WOMAN, MY TIME IS," WOMAN, TERM OF ENDEARMENT,
  • 00:19:26.290 --> 00:19:29.100
  • "MY TIME IS NOT COME."
  • 00:19:29.130 --> 00:19:30.200
  • BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:19:30.230 --> 00:19:31.180
  • HE TURNED WATER INTO WINE ANYWAY, WHY?
  • 00:19:31.210 --> 00:19:35.010
  • WELL, THERE'S MANY REASONS BUT ONE OF THEM IS LIKE,
  • 00:19:35.040 --> 00:19:36.240
  • "I'M GONNA HONOR MY MOM."
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:39.240
  • YOU SAY, "BUT, MY PROBLEM'S REALLY BIG.
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:41.000
  • "I CAN'T HONOR MY PARENTS.
  • 00:19:41.030 --> 00:19:41.280
  • "I'M 16 HERE, MY PARENTS DON'T GET ME.
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:44.060
  • "THEY GROUND ME ALL THE TIME."
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:45.110
  • WELL, LISTEN, IF THE SPIRIT THAT ENABLED JESUS,
  • 00:19:45.140 --> 00:19:48.200
  • IN LUKE 2, TO SUBMIT TO MARY AND JOSEPH
  • 00:19:48.230 --> 00:19:50.100
  • WHEN HE COULD'VE SAID, "I MADE YOU,"
  • 00:19:50.130 --> 00:19:53.210
  • ENABLED JESUS TO HONOR HIS PARENTS,
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:19:55.120
  • DON'T YOU THINK HE CAN MAKE YOU HONOR YOUR PARENTS?
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.290
  • 'CAUSE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET OVER WHAT GOD PUTS UNDER YOU
  • 00:19:58.020 --> 00:20:00.060
  • UNTIL YOU CAN FIRST GET UNDER WHAT GOD PUTS OVER YOU.
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:03.100
  • THERE'S THE STORY OF JESUS, LIKE,
  • 00:20:03.130 --> 00:20:04.140
  • HE GETS SENT TO THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:20:04.170 --> 00:20:06.080
  • HE'S THERE IN THE VALLEY OF JESHAMON.
  • 00:20:06.110 --> 00:20:08.030
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ALL THESE BEASTS
  • 00:20:08.060 --> 00:20:10.040
  • GATHERED TOGETHER TO HIM.
  • 00:20:10.070 --> 00:20:11.060
  • HE'S FULFILLING ISAIAH WHEN ISAIAH SAYS THAT
  • 00:20:11.090 --> 00:20:13.160
  • IN THE COMING KINGDOM, THE LION OR THE WOLF
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:17.080
  • SHALL LIE DOWN WITH THE LAMB AND THE LION WILL EAT STRAW
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:20.160
  • AND A CHILD WILL PUT HIS HAND IN A SNAKE'S PIT
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:23.070
  • AND HE WON'T BE HARMED.
  • 00:20:23.100 --> 00:20:25.040
  • IT'S GONNA BE EDEN AGAIN WHERE MAN AND BEAST,
  • 00:20:25.070 --> 00:20:27.060
  • LIKE, MAN CAN NAME THE ANIMALS
  • 00:20:27.090 --> 00:20:28.210
  • AND THEY'RE ALL HANGING OUT TOGETHER.
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:30.070
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS IS JUST HANGING OUT WITH ANIMALS
  • 00:20:30.100 --> 00:20:33.100
  • AND THEY'RE MINISTERING TO HIM.
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:35.050
  • WHY, BECAUSE HE TURNS THE VALLEY OF JESHAMON INTO EDEN.
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:39.000
  • WHERE MAN AND BEAST ARE ONE AGAIN.
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:40.030
  • HE CAN TURN THE DESERT OF TEMPTATION
  • 00:20:40.060 --> 00:20:41.230
  • INTO THE DELIGHT OF EDEN.
  • 00:20:41.260 --> 00:20:43.040
  • THAT'S WHAT EDEN MEANS, DELIGHT.
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:44.230
  • AND EDEN, ACTUALLY, CAN ALSO MEAN DESERT.
  • 00:20:44.260 --> 00:20:46.200
  • HE CAN TAKE THE DESERT AND TURN IT INTO AN EDEN
  • 00:20:46.230 --> 00:20:48.170
  • AND TURN INTO DESSERT.
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:52.230
  • THAT SAME SPIRIT THAT CAN BRING, AS ISAIAH SAID,
  • 00:20:52.260 --> 00:20:55.130
  • STREAMS IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:56.280
  • HE CAN MAKE AN EDEN OUT OF YOUR DESERT.
  • 00:20:57.010 --> 00:20:58.200
  • THAT SPIRIT IS ALIVE IN YOU.
  • 00:20:58.230 --> 00:21:01.130
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT ENABLED JESUS TO LOVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:01.160 --> 00:21:05.220
  • LIKE, I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE YOU'RE CARRYING YOUR CROSS
  • 00:21:05.250 --> 00:21:08.040
  • AND YOU'RE TRYING TO FORGIVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:08.070 --> 00:21:09.120
  • JESUS SAID, "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT
  • 00:21:09.150 --> 00:21:11.090
  • "WHAT THEY DO."
  • 00:21:11.120 --> 00:21:12.110
  • WHAT DID HE DO TO THE PEOPLE WHO HARMED HIM?
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:13.070
  • HE PRAYED FOR THEM
  • 00:21:13.100 --> 00:21:14.090
  • IT'S HARD TO PUT SOMEONE ON YOUR HIT LIST
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:16.020
  • THAT YOU PUT ON YOUR PRAYER LIST.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:19.210
  • HE PRAYED FOR THEM.
  • 00:21:19.240 --> 00:21:20.200
  • THAT SPIRIT'S IN YOU TO FORGIVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:22.240
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT WAS IN JESUS WHEN, IN JOHN 4,
  • 00:21:22.270 --> 00:21:26.200
  • HE WENT TO A SAMARITAN WOMAN.
  • 00:21:26.230 --> 00:21:28.200
  • REMEMBER, JAMES AND JOHN,
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:30.100
  • THEY TRIED TO TORCH A SAMARITAN VILLAGE
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:32.090
  • 'CAUSE THEY HATED SAMARITANS.
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:33.120
  • THEY WERE THE HALF-BLOODS, THE MUD-BLOODS.
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:35.220
  • THEY WERE THE HATED RACE.
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:37.050
  • THEY WERE ASSYRIANS MIXED WITH JEWS,
  • 00:21:37.080 --> 00:21:38.120
  • THEY HATED THEM.
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:39.240
  • JAMES AND JOHN SAID, "CAN WE TORCH A SAMARITAN VILLAGE?"
  • 00:21:39.270 --> 00:21:43.070
  • AND JESUS WAS LIKE, "I DIDN'T COME TO TORCH PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:43.100 --> 00:21:44.270
  • "I CAME TO TOUCH PEOPLE."
  • 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:48.270
  • THE SPIRIT DIDN'T COME TO DESTROY BUT TO SAVE.
  • 00:21:49.000 --> 00:21:53.290
  • AND JESUS GOES TO A SAMARITAN WOMAN.
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:57.120
  • NOW, WE KNOW FROM ANCIENT JEWISH WRITINGS
  • 00:21:57.150 --> 00:21:59.020
  • THAT SOMETIMES JEWISH MEN TALKED ABOUT, THIS IS CRAZY.
  • 00:21:59.050 --> 00:22:04.120
  • ACCORDING TO ANCIENT WRITINGS SOME JEWISH MEN
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:06.140
  • SAW SAMARITAN WOMEN AS OF LESS IMPORTANCE THAN THEIR DONKEY.
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:13.200
  • THAT'S THE CONTEXT BEHIND THE TEXT.
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:16.000
  • AND JESUS GOES TO THE SAME WOMAN
  • 00:22:16.030 --> 00:22:17.240
  • THAT SOME JEWISH MEN, ACCORDING TO ANCIENT WRITINGS,
  • 00:22:17.270 --> 00:22:19.270
  • COUNTED AS LESS VALUE THAN THEIR DONKEY.
  • 00:22:20.000 --> 00:22:23.160
  • HE SAYS, "I LOVE DONKEYS.
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:26.030
  • "I RIDE INTO JERUSALEM AS THE KING OF KINGS ON A DONKEY
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:28.190
  • "AND I SPEAK THROUGH DONKEYS IN THE BOOK OF NUMBERS.
  • 00:22:28.220 --> 00:22:31.120
  • "LET ME TELL YOU THAT THE LONGEST CONVERSATION
  • 00:22:31.150 --> 00:22:33.170
  • "I'M EVER GONNA HAVE WITH AN INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:22:33.200 --> 00:22:35.040
  • "IS WITH A SAMARITAN WOMAN.
  • 00:22:35.070 --> 00:22:39.010
  • "I'M GONNA LOVE THE OUTCAST.
  • 00:22:39.040 --> 00:22:41.280
  • "I'M GONNA LOVE THE HATED."
  • 00:22:42.010 --> 00:22:44.210
  • "OH, BUT, THEY'RE ODD."
  • 00:22:44.240 --> 00:22:45.250
  • WELL, YEAH, SOMETIMES IS YOU WANT TO BE NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:47.050
  • YOU HAVE TO BE ODD.
  • 00:22:47.080 --> 00:22:50.090
  • THANK YOU FOR THAT ONE, MAX.
  • 00:22:50.120 --> 00:22:52.130
  • IT'S TRUE, MAN.
  • 00:22:52.160 --> 00:22:54.210
  • I SAID THIS THE OTHER NIGHT BUT NOBODY GOT IT.
  • 00:22:54.240 --> 00:22:56.110
  • SO, I'M GONNA TRY IT AGAIN.
  • 00:22:56.140 --> 00:22:58.050
  • IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE IN LAST PLACE,
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:00.050
  • LIKE THE SAMARITAN WOMAN, SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA REMEMBER,
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:03.010
  • "THE LAST WILL BE FIRST," JESUS SAID.
  • 00:23:03.040 --> 00:23:05.170
  • BECAUSE THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM
  • 00:23:05.200 --> 00:23:09.290
  • BUT THE SECOND MOUSE GETS THE CHEESE.
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:13.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:13.200 --> 00:23:17.130
  • THAT RESPONSE WAS SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN TWO WEEKS AGO.
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:19.220
  • MAYBE I'LL TRY IT AGAIN UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY LAUGH.
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:21.190
  • BUT, BE THAT AS IT MAY.
  • 00:23:21.220 --> 00:23:23.100
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT BEFRIENDED THE OUTCAST,
  • 00:23:23.130 --> 00:23:26.170
  • THAT SPIRIT IS WITH YOU WHEN YOU FEEL OUTCAST.
  • 00:23:26.200 --> 00:23:28.240
  • HE'S BEFRIENDING YOU.
  • 00:23:28.270 --> 00:23:31.110
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT COULD CURSE A FIG TREE.
  • 00:23:31.140 --> 00:23:33.260
  • I LOVE WHEN JESUS GOES A FIG TREE
  • 00:23:33.290 --> 00:23:35.240
  • AND HE'S LIKE, "YOU ARE CURSED."
  • 00:23:35.270 --> 00:23:38.150
  • THE FIG TREE BARES LEAVES BUT NO FIGS
  • 00:23:38.180 --> 00:23:40.240
  • AND HE'S LIKE, "YEAH, YOU'RE CURSED.
  • 00:23:40.270 --> 00:23:42.000
  • "YOU'RE NEVER GONNA BARE FIGS AGAIN."
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:43.190
  • AND THEN IT SHRIVELS UP AND DIES.
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:45.150
  • I JUST PICTURE JESUS GOING TO A VENDING MACHINE
  • 00:23:45.180 --> 00:23:46.290
  • AND HE PUTS IN A FEW QUARTERS, GETS A TWIX,
  • 00:23:47.020 --> 00:23:49.070
  • AND THEN IT BEGINS TO COME OUT
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:51.240
  • AND THEN GETS STUCK ON THE METAL RING.
  • 00:23:51.270 --> 00:23:53.240
  • IT'S LIKE, "YOU ARE CURSED.
  • 00:23:53.270 --> 00:23:55.020
  • "YOU WILL NEVER BEAR REESE'S PIECES AGAIN,"
  • 00:23:55.050 --> 00:23:58.220
  • AND JUST, LIKE, COLLAPSES.
  • 00:23:58.250 --> 00:24:02.180
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT CAN DESTROY FRUITLESSNESS.
  • 00:24:02.210 --> 00:24:05.180
  • ANY AREA IN YOUR LIFE THAT'S FRUITLESS,
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:07.120
  • HE CAN DESTROY THAT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:24:07.150 --> 00:24:09.150
  • WHAT PAUL IS SAYING IS THAT IN EVERY AREA
  • 00:24:09.180 --> 00:24:12.220
  • OF JESUS' LIFE, THAT SPIRIT THAT EVEN RAISED HIM
  • 00:24:12.250 --> 00:24:15.050
  • FROM THE DEAD, IS ALIVE IN YOU.
  • 00:24:15.080 --> 00:24:16.250
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT COULD ENABLE JESUS
  • 00:24:16.280 --> 00:24:19.020
  • TO PAY HIS TEMPLE TAX BY TELLING PETER VICARIOUSLY
  • 00:24:19.050 --> 00:24:22.140
  • TO GO GET A FISH AND PULL A COIN OUT OF ITS MOUTH
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:26.030
  • TO PAY HIS BILLS, DON'T YOU THINK HE CAN PAY YOUR BILLS?
  • 00:24:26.060 --> 00:24:30.120
  • THE SAME SPIRIT THAT, LIKE, WITH THE GOLDEN RULE,
  • 00:24:30.150 --> 00:24:33.290
  • COULD SPEAK WITH A GOLDEN TONGUE LIKE THE GOLDEN THROAT,
  • 00:24:34.020 --> 00:24:36.200
  • SPEAKS THE GOLDEN RULE AND GOES OVER TO A WOMAN
  • 00:24:36.230 --> 00:24:39.080
  • WHO'S BENT OVER DOUBLE FOUR 18 YEARS
  • 00:24:39.110 --> 00:24:40.210
  • AND SAYS, "WOMAN, BE THOU LOOSED," AND SHE'S HEALED.
  • 00:24:40.240 --> 00:24:42.230
  • HE CAUSES THE LAME TO LEAP, THE BLIND TO SEE,
  • 00:24:42.260 --> 00:24:44.180
  • THE DEAF TO HEAR.
  • 00:24:44.210 --> 00:24:45.210
  • HE SPITS ON THE GROUND AND PUTS MUD IN A GUY'S EYES
  • 00:24:45.240 --> 00:24:47.200
  • AND THE GUY CAN SEE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED
  • 00:24:47.230 --> 00:24:49.020
  • THAT EMPEROR OF VESPASIAN, ACCORDING TO TACITUS,
  • 00:24:49.050 --> 00:24:51.070
  • THE ROMAN HISTORIAN, COULD HEAL PEOPLE WITH HIS SPIT.
  • 00:24:51.100 --> 00:24:53.240
  • JESUS SEES THIS GUY AND HE SAYS, "I'M GONNA AID HIS FAITH,"
  • 00:24:53.270 --> 00:24:58.070
  • AND SAY OKAY TO MEDICINE.
  • 00:24:58.100 --> 00:25:00.070
  • AND HE SPITS ON THE GROUND AND PUTS MUD IN THE GUY'S EYE
  • 00:25:00.100 --> 00:25:02.110
  • AND THE GUY CAN SEE.
  • 00:25:02.140 --> 00:25:03.280
  • ONE TIME, JESUS PUT SPIT ON HIS FINGERS
  • 00:25:04.010 --> 00:25:06.240
  • AND STICKS IT IN THE DEAF GUY'S EAR
  • 00:25:06.270 --> 00:25:08.250
  • AND FETCHES OUT THE DEAFNESS AND THE GUY CAN HEAR.
  • 00:25:08.280 --> 00:25:11.190
  • LIKE, THE SPIRIT THAT DID ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:25:11.220 --> 00:25:13.120
  • THAT MADE THE UNIVERSE AND WAS ALSO ALIVE
  • 00:25:13.150 --> 00:25:16.080
  • IN THE STORY OF JESUS, TO RAISE HIM FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:25:16.110 --> 00:25:18.220
  • ACCORDING TO 1 CORINTHIANS 15.
  • 00:25:18.250 --> 00:25:20.150
  • THAT SPIRIT LIVES IN YOU.
  • 00:25:20.180 --> 00:25:22.020
  • YOU DON'T HAVE AN EXCUSE TO BE HOPELESS.
  • 00:25:22.050 --> 00:25:24.010
  • HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD? BIG ENOUGH.
  • 00:25:24.040 --> 00:25:26.090
  • HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD? BIG ENOUGH.
  • 00:25:26.120 --> 00:25:28.000
  • HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD? BIG ENOUGH.
  • 00:25:28.030 --> 00:25:30.070
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING, MAN.
  • 00:25:30.100 --> 00:25:31.140
  • JESUS IS AMAZING EVEN WHEN HE NAPS, HE'S PREACHING.
  • 00:25:31.170 --> 00:25:34.200
  • SO, IF HE COULD CAUSE THE BLIND TO SEE,
  • 00:25:34.230 --> 00:25:36.190
  • THE DEAF TO HEAR, THE MUTE TO SPEAK,
  • 00:25:36.220 --> 00:25:38.270
  • THE LAME TO LEAP, TURN THE TOMB INTO A WOMB,
  • 00:25:39.000 --> 00:25:41.060
  • THE CASKET INTO A CRADLE, THE BURIAL PLACE
  • 00:25:41.090 --> 00:25:43.080
  • INTO THE BIRTH PLACE,
  • 00:25:43.110 --> 00:25:44.150
  • IF HE COULD MAKE JUPITER'S OBLONG MOONS
  • 00:25:44.180 --> 00:25:46.230
  • AND COMETARY FLUFF GRAIN OF SAND SHOOTING STARS
  • 00:25:46.260 --> 00:25:49.200
  • AND MOUNT OLYMPUS VOLCANO ON MARS
  • 00:25:49.230 --> 00:25:51.290
  • AND THE OORT CLOUD PAST PLUTO,
  • 00:25:52.020 --> 00:25:54.080
  • AND IF HE COULD RAISE JESUS FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:25:54.110 --> 00:25:57.070
  • DON'T YOU THINK HE CAN DO ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:25:57.100 --> 00:26:01.070
  • SO, TURN YOUR QUESTION MARKS INTO EXCLAMATION MARKS
  • 00:26:01.100 --> 00:26:04.090
  • BECAUSE QUESTION MARKS ARE JUST EXCLAMATION MARKS
  • 00:26:04.120 --> 00:26:06.260
  • BENT OUT OF SHAPE.
  • 00:26:06.290 --> 00:26:08.050
  • GOD DOESN'T CALL THE QUALIFIED.
  • 00:26:08.080 --> 00:26:10.050
  • HE EMPOWERS AND QUALIFIES THE CALLED.
  • 00:26:10.080 --> 00:26:13.010
  • IF HE COULD USE A BUSH, IF HE COULD USE A DONKEY,
  • 00:26:13.040 --> 00:26:16.030
  • AND IF HE COULD USE A ROCK,
  • 00:26:16.060 --> 00:26:17.210
  • THEN THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAN USE US.
  • 00:26:17.240 --> 00:26:21.090
  • WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE SAY, "CHURCH?"
  • 00:26:21.120 --> 00:26:25.020
  • JESUS IS THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS
  • 00:26:25.050 --> 00:26:27.040
  • WHO PUTS DEATH TO DEATH SO WE DON'T HAVE TO BE SCARED
  • 00:26:27.070 --> 00:26:29.200
  • TO DEATH OF DEATH 'CAUSE AT THE PLACE OF THE SKULL,
  • 00:26:29.230 --> 00:26:32.260
  • HE CRUSHED THE SKULL OF THE SERPENT, GENESIS 3:15,
  • 00:26:32.290 --> 00:26:35.230
  • WITH THE CROWN OF THORNS ON HIS SKULL.
  • 00:26:35.260 --> 00:26:38.110
  • INDEED, HE TURNS THE TOMB INTO A WOMB.
  • 00:26:38.140 --> 00:26:42.160
  • WE HEART YOU UP GENERATORS.
  • 00:26:42.190 --> 00:26:43.270
