  • took place. And I'll--I'll getinto the details about it here
  • 00:01:05.334 --> 00:01:09.071
  • in just a moment. But it wasactually at your house where
  • 00:01:09.104 --> 00:01:13.075
  • this--this series was born. Andit was many years ago. Bulldog
  • 00:01:13.108 --> 00:01:18.280
  • faith. Bulldog faith is what youand I are going to be talking
  • 00:01:18.313 --> 00:01:21.850

  • a time, Gloria, where so much isgoing on around here in the
  • 00:01:29.024 --> 00:01:32.828
  • ministry. We're believing for somany different things. Our faith
  • 00:01:32.861 --> 00:01:36.498
  • needs to come up to the nextlevel. And it can come up to the
  • 00:01:36.532 --> 00:01:40.002
  • next level. I mean, Jesus talkedabout little faith. He talked
  • 00:01:40.035 --> 00:01:43.939
  • about no faith. Then there was aplace where we-- GLORIA: Great
  • 00:01:43.972 --> 00:01:46.608

  • mega faith level-- GLORIA: Amen.GEORGE: --to where we are able
  • 00:02:02.191 --> 00:02:05.294
  • to receive everything that Godwants us to have. And so I want
  • 00:02:05.327 --> 00:02:10.499

  • 00:02:27.649 --> 00:02:30.385
  • we want to make available. And Iwant to start this series off
  • 00:02:30.419 --> 00:02:34.623
  • with looking at this Scripturein Luke 22. Let's take a look at
  • 00:02:34.656 --> 00:02:37.826
  • Luke 22. It says here, in Verse31, "The Lord said, Simon,
  • 00:02:37.859 --> 00:02:42.831
  • Simon, behold, Satan has desiredto have you, that he may sift
  • 00:02:42.864 --> 00:02:48.237
  • you like wheat: I have prayedfor you, that your faith fail
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:53.141
  • not: and when you are converted,strengthen your brethren." Here,
  • 00:02:53.175 --> 00:02:59.448
  • we're--we're seeing thisScripture. When it says here,
  • 00:02:59.481 --> 00:03:02.417
  • the--the devil's plan to siftus, that word "sift" there,
  • 00:03:02.451 --> 00:03:07.389
  • Gloria, it means to separate, tobreak into pieces, to shake--
  • 00:03:07.422 --> 00:03:11.893
  • GLORIA: That sounds just likehim, doesn't it? GEORGE: --to
  • 00:03:11.927 --> 00:03:13.161
  • shatter, and to discourage. Andthere's a-- GLORIA: Wow. That's
  • 00:03:13.195 --> 00:03:18.700
  • quite a-- GEORGE: --sifting--GLORIA: --quite a definition.
  • 00:03:18.734 --> 00:03:20.402
  • GEORGE: It really is. And thatsifting is an inward agitation
  • 00:03:20.435 --> 00:03:23.872
  • to try one's faith to the vergeof overflow. So the plan of the
  • 00:03:23.905 --> 00:03:28.777
  • devil is to try to drain us--GLORIA: Sure. GEORGE: --and to
  • 00:03:28.810 --> 00:03:31.513
  • discourage us, and to--to weakenand to-- GLORIA: Beat us. Whip
  • 00:03:31.546 --> 00:03:35.517
  • us. GEORGE: Yeah, beat us, whipus, wear down our faith. And he
  • 00:03:35.550 --> 00:03:39.488
  • does that through continualpressure, through
  • 00:03:39.521 --> 00:03:42.224
  • disappointments, through--GLORIA: Lies. GEORGE: --and
  • 00:03:42.257 --> 00:03:44.126
  • discouragement, lies. GLORIA:Oh, he's big on lies. GEORGE:
  • 00:03:44.159 --> 00:03:45.661
  • Lies of the devil. And really,what he wants us to do, Gloria--
  • 00:03:45.694 --> 00:03:49.498
  • GLORIA: You know what? Thinkabout this, George. GEORGE:
  • 00:03:49.531 --> 00:03:50.832
  • Yeah, tell me. GLORIA: Don't letme mess you up. GEORGE: No, no.
  • 00:03:50.866 --> 00:03:52.567
  • I'm good. GLORIA: There is notruth in him. So when he lies to
  • 00:03:52.601 --> 00:03:57.506
  • you, you know it's a lie.GEORGE: (Laughs) you know it's a

  • 00:08:28.276 --> 00:08:31.346
  • lie that he was trying to get meto believe in 2002. It was the
  • 00:08:31.379 --> 00:08:36.351
  • year--let me--and this is wherethis series was born. Let

  • me--let me share this with you.GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE: In--in
  • 00:08:40.055 --> 00:08:44.259
  • 2002, we were over--we wereliving in another part of town.
  • 00:08:44.292 --> 00:08:47.963
  • We sold the house over there.And we had to move four times
  • 00:08:47.996 --> 00:08:51.433
  • that year. We moved--we movedout of the house that we
  • 00:08:51.466 --> 00:08:55.337
  • were--we moved out of the housethat we were living in. We moved
  • 00:08:55.370 --> 00:08:58.440
  • into an apartment for a monthbecause the--the house that we
  • 00:08:58.473 --> 00:09:03.745
  • wanted to move into, we wererenovating. And we thought--we
  • 00:09:03.778 --> 00:09:07.349
  • thought we were going to getinto it sooner. So we moved from
  • 00:09:07.382 --> 00:09:09.951
  • the house that we sold to anapartment for a month. We were
  • 00:09:09.985 --> 00:09:14.923
  • in that apartment for a month,and then we moved to another
  • 00:09:14.956 --> 00:09:18.660
  • house, a rent house. And thatrent house was so bad, it turned
  • 00:09:18.693 --> 00:09:22.998
  • out to be--it was a faultyseptic system. And the--the
  • 00:09:23.031 --> 00:09:27.469
  • fumes were coming up in throughthe house. GLORIA: Mm. GEORGE:
  • 00:09:27.502 --> 00:09:31.039

  • 00:09:31.072 --> 00:09:34.943
  • can--we've got to get out ofhere. We've got to get out of
  • 00:09:34.976 --> 00:09:36.378
  • here." And I'm like, "Well,let's give it another day. We'll
  • 00:09:36.411 --> 00:09:38.513
  • give it another day." And it wason a Saturday night. Terri and I
  • 00:09:38.546 --> 00:09:43.318
  • were in bed, and we literallypulled the covers up over us
  • 00:09:43.351 --> 00:09:46.021
  • because it was so bad. And we'reunder the covers, and I said to
  • 00:09:46.054 --> 00:09:48.857
  • Terri, "Let's get out of herenow." (Laughs) So we--what we
  • 00:09:48.890 --> 00:09:53.094
  • did, Gloria-- GLORIA: That'swhat hotels are for. GEORGE:
  • 00:09:53.128 --> 00:09:54.929

  • home the next day. GLORIA: Younever know who's coming to see
  • 00:10:06.875 --> 00:10:09.010
  • you while you're gone. GEORGE:And--(Laughs)--we just--we just
  • 00:10:09.044 --> 00:10:12.580
  • moved into your house. And wewere with you for six weeks,
  • 00:10:12.614 --> 00:10:16.151
  • until we could find anotherplace to live in. You were so
