  • THIS IS LEVI LUSKO, AUTHOR OF THROUGH THE EYES
  • 00:00:06.120 --> 00:00:08.110
  • OF A LION.
  • 00:00:08.130 --> 00:00:09.200
  • I WROTE THIS BOOK AFTER MY DAUGHTER LENYA
  • 00:00:09.220 --> 00:00:11.010
  • WAS SUDDENLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY TAKEN TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:11.030 --> 00:00:14.040
  • NO MATTER WHAT KIND OF DIFFICULTY YOU'VE HAD TO FACE
  • 00:00:14.060 --> 00:00:16.160
  • IN THIS LIFE, LOSS OF A DREAM OR A JOB
  • 00:00:16.180 --> 00:00:19.200
  • OR ANY BROKENNESS IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:00:19.220 --> 00:00:21.160
  • GOD WANTS TO TURN THAT JOURNEY INTO A ROAR STORY
  • 00:00:21.180 --> 00:00:24.220
  • AS YOU RISE UP AS BOLD AS A LION,
  • 00:00:24.240 --> 00:00:27.170
  • SEEING THE INVISIBLE AND DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:00:27.190 --> 00:00:32.130
  • THE LION'S ROAR WILL LEAD US HOME
  • 00:00:32.150 --> 00:00:39.280
  • THE LION'S ROAR WILL LEAD US HOME
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:46.190
  • IT'S GONNA BE ALL RIGHT...
  • 00:00:46.210 --> 00:00:49.250
  • IT'S GONNA BE OKAY...
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:52.100
  • IT'S A COLD, DARK NIGHT...
  • 00:00:52.120 --> 00:00:55.100
  • IN THE AVENGERS THERE'S THIS INCREDIBLE SCENE
  • 00:00:55.120 --> 00:00:57.050
  • WHERE IRON MAN AND THE HULK ARE TALKING,
  • 00:00:57.070 --> 00:01:01.060
  • TONY STARK AND BRUCE BANNER.
  • 00:01:01.080 --> 00:01:03.130
  • AND THE HULK IS KIND OF COMPLAINING ABOUT
  • 00:01:03.150 --> 00:01:07.040
  • HOW HE FEELS SO VULNERABLE.
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:09.120
  • HE SAYS WHEN HE'S THE HULK HE'S LIKE A NERVE THAT'S EXPOSED.
  • 00:01:09.140 --> 00:01:13.200
  • HE DOESN'T GET A SUIT OF ARMOR TO WEAR.
  • 00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:15.240
  • HE'S JUST SORT OF DREADING AND TALKING WITH SUCH
  • 00:01:15.260 --> 00:01:20.070
  • A LOW VIEW OF THE JOB.
  • 00:01:20.090 --> 00:01:23.060
  • TONY STARK KIND OF CORRECTS HIM AND CHIDES HIM,
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:26.260
  • SAYING THERE'S A DIFFERENT WAY TO LOOK AT IT.
  • 00:01:26.280 --> 00:01:29.100
  • HE SAYS, "YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT SHRAPNEL
  • 00:01:29.120 --> 00:01:31.180
  • "TRYING EVERY SECOND TO CLAW ITS WAY INTO MY HEART
  • 00:01:31.200 --> 00:01:34.120
  • "AND KILL ME."
  • 00:01:34.140 --> 00:01:35.240
  • THEN HE GESTURES TO HIS LITTLE ARC REACTOR AND SAYS,
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:38.280
  • "THIS STOPS IT.
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:40.090
  • "THIS LITTLE CIRCLE OF LIGHT."
  • 00:01:40.110 --> 00:01:42.220
  • HE SAYS, "IT'S NOT JUST ARMOR.
  • 00:01:42.240 --> 00:01:45.040
  • "IT'S A TERRIBLE PRIVILEGE."
  • 00:01:45.060 --> 00:01:48.180
  • I THINK THAT'S A GREAT WAY TO LOOK AT PAIN.
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:50.220
  • A TERRIBLE PRIVILEGE.
  • 00:01:50.240 --> 00:01:54.070
  • I ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT PAIN IS A MICROPHONE
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:57.270
  • AND THE MORE IT HURTS, THE LOUDER YOU GET.
  • 00:01:57.290 --> 00:02:02.050
  • I THINK THIS IS SEEN VIVIDLY IN THE LIFE OF PAUL,
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:05.170
  • PAUL THE APOSTLE, WHO BEFORE THAT WAS PAUL,
  • 00:02:05.190 --> 00:02:08.240
  • THE GUY WHO HATED JESUS.
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:10.280
  • GO FIGURE.
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:12.210
  • I GUESS THAT SAYS THAT WE CAN NEVER GIVE UP
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:14.030
  • ON ANYBODY IN OUR LIFE, NO MATTER HOW FAR
  • 00:02:14.050 --> 00:02:16.110
  • THEY SEEM FROM GOD.
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:18.070
  • THIS GUY LITERALLY HATED JESUS MORE THAN ANYBODY.
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:21.260
  • HE SPENT HIS TIME TRYING TO KILL CHRISTIANS
  • 00:02:21.280 --> 00:02:25.040
  • AND DESTROY THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:26.280
  • WITH HIS BARE HANDS.
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:28.240
  • THAT WAS UNTIL HE MET JESUS, GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST,
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:32.270
  • AND WAS RADICALLY CHANGED BY THE SAME ONE HE HATED THE MOST.
  • 00:02:32.290 --> 00:02:38.130
  • YOU GOTTA IMAGINE HOW DIFFICULT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:41.040
  • FOR PAUL TO GO FROM A CHRISTIAN HATER
  • 00:02:41.060 --> 00:02:43.110
  • TO ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS EPIC PREACHER.
  • 00:02:43.130 --> 00:02:46.010
  • THERE WAS DEFINITELY A PERIOD OF TRANSITION
  • 00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:48.230
  • WHERE IT WASN'T SO EASY.
  • 00:02:48.250 --> 00:02:50.190
  • IN FACT, HE WAS BLIND, AS THE STORY GOES,
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:53.070
  • AFTER GETTING SAVED, AND LYING IN THIS HOUSE,
  • 00:02:53.090 --> 00:02:55.290
  • WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO COME AND WALK HIM THROUGH THE STEPS
  • 00:02:56.010 --> 00:02:58.280
  • OF HOW TO FOLLOW JESUS.
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:01.250
  • GOD CALLED THIS MAN NAMED ANANIAS TO BE THAT GUY.
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:05.190
  • IN MOST CHURCHES, THERE'S A NEW BELIEVERS CLASS
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:08.110
  • OR A GROWTH TRACK OR SOME SORT OF PROGRAM
  • 00:03:08.130 --> 00:03:11.170
  • THAT YOU'LL GO THROUGH TO LEARN KIND OF THE ELEMENTARY
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:15.180
  • KICK START KIND OF PHASE OF FOLLOWING JESUS.
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:18.170
  • ANANIAS HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING THAT FOR SAUL.
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:22.130
  • SO GOD SENDS HIM TO GO TALK TO HIM,
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:24.110
  • AND HE UNDERSTANDABLY OBJECTS.
  • 00:03:24.130 --> 00:03:27.040
  • HE SAYS, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:28.180
  • THIS GUY, HE KILLS MY FRIENDS,
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:31.040
  • HE DRAGS THEM OUT TO JAIL BY THEIR HAIR,
  • 00:03:31.060 --> 00:03:33.180
  • CUSSING AND SCREAMING ABOUT HOW MUCH HE HATES JESUS.
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:36.220
  • YOU WANT ME TO GO TO HIM?
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:38.250
  • GOD SAYS, HE'S A BELIEVER NOW.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:41.100
  • I'M SURE ANANIAS WAS PROBABLY LIKE, HE'S FAKING.
  • 00:03:41.120 --> 00:03:44.020
  • THE MOMENT I COME IN, I'M GONNA BE LIKE
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:45.180
  • PRAISE THE LORD, BRO, AND HE'S GONNA ALL OF THE SUDDEN
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:48.090
  • TALK INTO THE MICROPHONE ON HIS LAPEL
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:50.060
  • AND AGENTS ARE GONNA COME IN AND DRAG US OFF TO JAIL.
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:53.180
  • AND LISTEN TO WHAT GOD SAYS IN RESPONSE
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:55.120
  • TO ANANIAS'S OBJECTIONS.
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:57.280
  • GOD SAYS, ACTS 9:15, "GO, FOR HE IS A CHOSEN VESSEL OF MINE
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:04:04.230
  • "TO BEAR MY NAME BEFORE GENTILES AND KINGS
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:09.200
  • "AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:09.220 --> 00:04:11.230
  • "FOR I WILL SHOW HIM HOW MANY THINGS HE MUST SUFFER
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:15.290
  • "FOR MY NAME'S SAKE."
  • 00:04:16.010 --> 00:04:18.230
  • OKAY, GET THIS.
  • 00:04:18.250 --> 00:04:20.090
  • ANANIAS IS TOLD, YOU GOTTA GO, YOU GOTTA OBEY.
  • 00:04:20.110 --> 00:04:23.170
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:25.070
  • THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS AS THEY SEEM, REMEMBER.
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:27.140
  • GO, FOR HE IS MY CHOSEN VESSEL.
  • 00:04:27.160 --> 00:04:30.230
  • AND THEN GOD TELLS HIM WHAT BEING A CHOSEN VESSEL
  • 00:04:30.250 --> 00:04:33.040
  • IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:34.160
  • HE THEN TELLS HIM, FIRST PART, HE'S GONNA SPEAK TO KINGS
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:39.080
  • AND GENTILES AND THE WHOLE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:39.100 --> 00:04:42.000
  • HELLO, EPIC.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:43.240
  • BUT THEN GOD SAYS, "I'M GONNA SHOW HIM HOW MUCH
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:46.280
  • "HE MUST SUFFER FOR MY NAME'S SAKE."
  • 00:04:47.000 --> 00:04:50.040
  • NOW WE HAVE THE TWO ELEMENTS OF BEING A CHOSEN VESSEL.
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:54.130
  • NUMBER ONE, GOD WANTS TO DO A TON OF STUFF THROUGH YOU
  • 00:04:54.150 --> 00:04:57.170
  • IF YOU'RE A CHOSEN VESSEL.
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:04:59.120
  • I THINK TALKING TO KINGS FITS THE BILL FOR THAT.
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:05:02.240
  • BUT THE SECOND PART OF IT IS, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO SUFFER
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:06.170
  • ON THE WAY TO BEING USED BY GOD.
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:09.080
  • THERE WE HAVE IT.
  • 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:10.100
  • OPPORTUNITY AND DIFFICULTY.
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:13.140
  • WE HAVE INFLUENCE AND INCONVENIENCE.
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:16.180
  • THOSE ARE THE TWO.
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:18.060
  • BUT HOLD ON A SECOND.
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:19.240
  • I DON'T BELIEVE THERE ARE ACTUALLY TWO.
  • 00:05:19.260 --> 00:05:21.270
  • I BELIEVE THOSE TWO THINGS ARE TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN.
  • 00:05:21.290 --> 00:05:27.270
  • THAT IT WILL BE THROUGH SUFFERING GREATLY
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:30.290
  • AND GOING THROUGH MUCH DIFFICULTY
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:33.060
  • THAT GOD WILL OPEN UP FOR YOU
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:35.140
  • CONTINUALLY ESCALATING OPPORTUNITY,
  • 00:05:35.160 --> 00:05:39.170
  • AND THAT YOU CAN'T SEPARATE THEM
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:41.230
  • AND HAVE ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER.
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:43.260
  • IT WOULD BE AWESOME IF GOD COULD USE US IN GREAT WAYS.
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:46.240
  • WE'D GET TO TALK TO KINGS AND GET TO GO SPEAK TO NATIONS
  • 00:05:46.260 --> 00:05:50.220
  • AND BE USED IN ENORMOUS WAYS LIKE WE HAVE DREAMS
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:54.250
  • OF DOING IN OUR HEARTS.
  • 00:05:54.270 --> 00:05:56.180
  • IF WE COULD DO THOSE THINGS WITHOUT EVER SUFFERING,
  • 00:05:56.200 --> 00:05:58.250
  • THAT WOULD BE AMAZING.
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:00.140
  • BUT IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. PAUL'S OWN LIFE PROVES IT.
  • 00:06:00.160 --> 00:06:03.220
  • FOR IT IS AS HE IS SUFFERING,
  • 00:06:03.240 --> 00:06:06.060
  • AS HE IS BEING LIED ABOUT, AS HE IS SUFFERING GREAT THINGS
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:10.160
  • FOR THE NAME OF JESUS THAT HE IS ABLE
  • 00:06:10.180 --> 00:06:13.210
  • TO SPEAK TO KINGS.
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.070
  • IF YOU TOOK AWAY HIS MISERY,
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:17.250
  • YOU'D ALSO TAKE AWAY HIS MINISTRY.
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:20.130
  • NO INFIRMITY, NO OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:23.180
  • IT WOULD BE AS A PRISONER.
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:24.290
  • HE'D BE ON SHIPS GOING TO STAND BEFORE VIP AUDIENCES,
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:28.200
  • GETTING TO LEAD PEOPLE TO FAITH WHO WORKED
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:31.090
  • IN CAESAR'S HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:33.220
  • WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH YOU AND ME?
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:35.200
  • IT'S GREAT FOR SAUL. IT'S GREAT FOR THE APOSTLE PAUL.
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:38.200
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO'S A CHOSEN VESSEL.
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:42.040
  • WE DON'T GET OFF THE HOOK SO QUICKLY,
  • 00:06:42.060 --> 00:06:44.170
  • BECAUSE 1 PETER SAYS YOU ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION.
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:49.120
  • YOU ARE A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:06:49.140 --> 00:06:52.270
  • YOU ARE A HOLY NATION. GOD'S OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:56.140
  • YOU'VE BEEN BROUGHT OUT OF DARKNESS INTO
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:59.060
  • TO PROCLAIM HIS PRAISES.
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:01.210
  • THAT MEANS THAT FOR YOU AND FOR ME,
  • 00:07:01.230 --> 00:07:04.090
  • WE HAVE BEEN CHOSEN BY GOD AS HIS VESSELS
  • 00:07:04.110 --> 00:07:06.260
  • TO CONTAIN HIS SPIRIT, TO SEE THE GIFTS
  • 00:07:06.280 --> 00:07:09.100
  • THAT HE PUT INSIDE OF US, MUCH LIKE A SUPERHERO.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:12.160
  • WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT ENABLINGS,
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:14.250
  • DIFFERENT SPIRITUAL CAPACITIES HE'S PUT INTO US.
  • 00:07:14.270 --> 00:07:18.100
  • SOME ARE AT THE FOOT, SOME ARE THE KNEES,
  • 00:07:18.120 --> 00:07:20.080
  • SOME ARE THE SHOULDER, SOME ARE THE PANCREAS,
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:22.010
  • BUT WE'RE ALL A PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:24.150
  • MEANT TO IMPACT THIS WORLD.
  • 00:07:24.170 --> 00:07:26.200
  • HE WANTS TO DO GREAT THINGS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:07:26.220 --> 00:07:29.140
  • YOU HAVE A PLATFORM CUSTOM BUILT JUST FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:29.160 --> 00:07:32.150
  • A VOICE INSIDE OF YOU, AS LONG AS YOU HAVE BREATH
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:35.060
  • IN YOUR LUNGS, YOU HAVE A MICROPHONE IN YOUR HAND,
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:38.010
  • AND THE PAIN YOU GO THROUGH, IT IS A PART
  • 00:07:38.030 --> 00:07:40.120
  • OF THE WAY GOD WANTS TO USE YOU.
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:43.010
  • YES, YOU WILL STAND BEFORE MANY AND DO GREAT THINGS FOR HIM
  • 00:07:43.030 --> 00:07:46.140
  • BUT YOU ALSO WILL SUFFER MANY THINGS FOR HIS NAME'S SAKE.
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:50.190
  • YOUR DIFFICULTY IS A PART OF YOUR CALLING.
  • 00:07:50.210 --> 00:07:54.140
  • THERE'S NO WAY AROUND THAT.
  • 00:07:54.160 --> 00:07:56.140
  • THAT'S JUST WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CHOSEN VESSEL.
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:08:00.040
  • YOUR SUFFERING IS ALSO A PART OF YOUR CALLING.
  • 00:08:00.060 --> 00:08:04.120
  • THESE ARE TWO SIDES TO THE SAME COIN.
  • 00:08:04.140 --> 00:08:07.180
  • BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS, THE MORE IT HURTS,
  • 00:08:07.200 --> 00:08:10.170
  • THE LOUDER YOU GET.
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:12.100
  • THE LION'S ROAR WILL LEAD US HOME...
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:22.260
  • ANNOUNCER: THOUGH DEATH BRINGS GRIEF,
  • 00:08:28.190 --> 00:08:29.260
  • IT ALSO BRINGS HOPE.
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:31.170
  • IN PASTOR LEVI LUSKO'S BEST SELLING BOOK
  • 00:08:31.190 --> 00:08:33.270
  • THROUGH THE EYES OF LION, HE SHARES THE STORY
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:36.060
  • OF THE DAY HIS BEAUTIFUL AND SPIRITED LITTLE GIRL LENYA

  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:28.040
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:37.210
  • I'VE ONLY BEEN IN THE PRESENCE OF ROYALTY ONE TIME
  • 00:09:37.230 --> 00:09:40.100
  • THAT I KNOW OF.
  • 00:09:40.120 --> 00:09:42.010
  • I WAS IN ENGLAND AND ATTENDED A BIKE RACE.
  • 00:09:42.030 --> 00:09:45.280
  • ACTUALLY RODE MY BIKE 75 KILOMETERS TO
  • 00:09:46.000 --> 00:09:48.280
  • GET TO THIS TOWN WHERE THERE WAS AN ENORMOUS BIKE RACE,
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:52.230
  • THE TOUR DE FRANCE, BUT PART OF IT WAS HAPPENING IN ENGLAND.
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:56.270
  • ANYHOW, I RODE MY BIKE THE 75 KILOMETERS
  • 00:09:56.290 --> 00:10:00.160
  • AND GET TO THIS TOWN WHERE THE FINISH LINE IS GONNA BE,
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:03.120
  • AND THERE WAS 200.000 PEOPLE THERE
  • 00:10:03.140 --> 00:10:07.040
  • TO WATCH THAT RACE THAT DAY.
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:09.050
  • MY FRIEND HAD WOKEN UP EARLY IN THE MORNING
  • 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:12.030
  • AND GONE RIGHT TO FINISH LINE AND HAD BEEN SAVING US A SPOT.
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:15.170
  • AS I WAS RIDING, HE WAS WAITING, AND WHEN I FINALLY GOT
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:18.070
  • TO HIM, I HAD TO FIGHT MY WAY THROUGH THE CROWD,
  • 00:10:18.090 --> 00:10:20.260
  • FIGHT MY WAY THROUGH ALL THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:10:20.280 --> 00:10:23.050
  • AND YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE DIRTY LOOKS I WAS GETTING
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:25.160
  • TO MAKE MY WAY THROUGH THEM AS THEY WERE TRYING
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:28.030
  • TO WATCH THE FINISH, OF COURSE AS WELL.
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:30.120
  • "MY FRIEND'S GOT MY SPOT UP THERE.
  • 00:10:30.140 --> 00:10:32.030
  • "MY FRIEND'S GOT MY STOP UP THERE," I KEPT SAYING,
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:34.090
  • AND I EVENTUALLY MADE MY WAY LIKE A SALMON SWIMMING UPSTREAM
  • 00:10:34.110 --> 00:10:37.130
  • TO WHERE HE WAS AT.
  • 00:10:37.150 --> 00:10:39.130
  • HE HAD A SPOT STAKED OUT FOR US RIGHT THERE AT THIS FENCE
  • 00:10:39.150 --> 00:10:42.250
  • AND THE FINISH LINE WAS HERE.
  • 00:10:42.270 --> 00:10:44.060
  • IT WAS JUST AMAZING.
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:46.070
  • WE WAIT A COUPLE HOURS AND FINALLY THE RIDERS COME IN
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:50.060
  • FROM WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:51.100
  • THIS GRUELING RIDE THEY'VE BEEN DOING
  • 00:10:51.120 --> 00:10:52.180
  • UP AND DOWN THESE HILLS. AND IT WAS AMAZING.
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:55.000
  • THERE WAS A BIG CRASH RIGHT AT THE FINISH LINE.
  • 00:10:55.020 --> 00:10:57.130
  • I SAW A CYCLING HERO HIT THE PAVEMENT
  • 00:10:57.150 --> 00:11:00.100
  • AND THEY'D COME THROUGH,
  • 00:11:00.120 --> 00:11:02.060
  • AND THEN THERE'S THE AWARD CEREMONY
  • 00:11:02.080 --> 00:11:04.070
  • AND JERSEYS BEING GIVEN OUT.
  • 00:11:04.090 --> 00:11:06.070
  • ALL OF THIS WAS SEEN NOT JUST BY THE 200.000
  • 00:11:06.090 --> 00:11:08.250
  • OF US COMMON PEOPLE, BUT ALSO BY LITERALLY THE CROWN PRINCES
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:13.140
  • OF ENGLAND, HARRY AND WILL
  • 00:11:13.160 --> 00:11:15.200
  • AND THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE HERSELF, KATE WAS THERE.
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:20.190
  • THEY HAD COME IN VIA CHOPPER.
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:23.070
  • WHILE I WAS RIDING MY BICYCLE AND HUFFING AND PUFFING
  • 00:11:23.090 --> 00:11:25.200
  • MY OWN POWER TO GET THERE
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:27.090
  • AND THEN LITERALLY FIGHTING THROUGH A CROWD,
  • 00:11:27.110 --> 00:11:29.020
  • THEY HAD A ROYAL BOX THAT WAS RESERVED
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:31.230
  • EXCLUSIVELY FOR THEIR USE, WAITING FOR THEM
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:35.040
  • AT THEIR LEISURE.
  • 00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:36.160
  • THEIR HELICOPTER LANDS, THE CROWDS PART,
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:39.250
  • THEY GET ESCORTED STRAIGHT TO THEIR SEAT.
  • 00:11:39.270 --> 00:11:41.050
  • THEY JUST BARELY GET THERE IN TIME FOR THE FINISH
  • 00:11:41.070 --> 00:11:44.280
  • AND THEN THEY GIVE OUT THE JERSEYS.
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:47.070
  • KATE GIVES A KISS ON THE CHEEK TO THE WINNER OF THE STAGE
  • 00:11:47.090 --> 00:11:50.000
  • AND THAT WAS THAT.
  • 00:11:50.020 --> 00:11:51.170
  • THEY'RE OFF TO THEIR HELICOPTER TO HEAD HOME
  • 00:11:51.190 --> 00:11:54.170
  • AND THE REST OF US MADE OUR WAY TO WHEREVER WE WERE GOING.
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:59.060
  • WHY WAS THIS SO DIFFERENT, HOW THEY ARRIVED
  • 00:11:59.080 --> 00:12:01.040
  • VERSUS HOW I DID?
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:02.240
  • THEY WERE GIVEN THE ROYAL TREATMENT BECAUSE
  • 00:12:02.260 --> 00:12:07.110
  • LITERALLY ONE OF THOSE TWO MEN WILL SIT ON THE THRONE
  • 00:12:07.130 --> 00:12:10.100
  • AND RULE AS THE KING OF ENGLAND ONE DAY.
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:12.260
  • THAT'S HOW IT IS WHEN IT COMES TO MONARCHS.
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:16.060
  • WHY DO I BRING THIS UP?
  • 00:12:16.080 --> 00:12:17.280
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS THAT YOU ARE A KING.
  • 00:12:18.000 --> 00:12:20.090
  • YOU ARE A PRIEST.
  • 00:12:20.110 --> 00:12:21.290
  • YOU'RE A PART OF A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:12:22.010 --> 00:12:23.290
  • SO QUEEN, KING, PRINCE.
  • 00:12:24.010 --> 00:12:27.170
  • I'M JUST TRYING TO GET YOU TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:12:27.190 --> 00:12:28.260
  • YOU'RE A PART OF GOD'S FAMILY
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.250
  • AND WITH GOD AS YOUR FATHER, ROYAL BLOOD FLOWS
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:34.070
  • THROUGH YOUR VEINS. OF COURSE, THAT'S GOOD AND BAD.
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:39.140
  • BECAUSE LIKE SPIDER-MAN TAUGHT US,
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:41.090
  • WHERE THERE'S GREAT POWER,
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:42.220
  • THERE'S ALSO GREAT RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:12:42.240 --> 00:12:45.290
  • THE PROBLEM WITH BEING A KING AND A PRIEST
  • 00:12:46.010 --> 00:12:47.290
  • AS FAR AS I CAN UNDERSTAND IT
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:50.030
  • IS THAT BOTH KINGS AND PRIESTS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:53.120
  • HAD TO BE ANOINTED BEFORE THEY COULD BEGIN THEIR DUTIES.
  • 00:12:53.140 --> 00:12:57.270
  • THEY MAKE OLIVE OIL OUT OF CRUSHED OLIVES
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:13:00.280
  • TO GET THAT ANOINTING OIL THAT WOULD RUN DOWN
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:03.040
  • THE HEAD OF SOMEONE LIKE YOUNG DAVID,
  • 00:13:03.060 --> 00:13:05.050
  • WHO SAMUEL CAME TO THE SHEEPFOLD TO ANOINT.
  • 00:13:05.070 --> 00:13:09.090
  • TO GET TO THAT OLIVE OIL, YOU HAVE TO CRUSH THE OLIVES.
  • 00:13:09.110 --> 00:13:13.070
  • THAT'S THE UNPLEASANT PART.
  • 00:13:13.090 --> 00:13:15.120
  • I BELIEVE IN ORDER FOR US TO GET TO OUR ANOINTING,
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:19.110
  • WE HAVE TO BE WILLING TO GO THROUGH THE CRUSHING.
  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:24.040
  • YOU SEE A PICTURE OF THIS IN THE LIFE OF JESUS.
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:26.260
  • JESUS, HIS GREAT MOMENT, HIS HOUR THAT HE HAD COME FOR
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:31.140
  • WAS CALVARY, THE CROSS.
  • 00:13:31.160 --> 00:13:33.080
  • THAT WAS HIS ULTIMATE PLATFORM.
  • 00:13:33.100 --> 00:13:35.130
  • HE REFERRED TO IT AS THAT FOR WHICH HE HAD COME
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:37.120
  • INTO THIS WORLD.
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:38.180
  • JESUS, CERTAINLY WAS DESTINED FOR IMPACT.
  • 00:13:38.200 --> 00:13:41.180
  • BUT BEFORE HE COULD GET TO CALVARY,
  • 00:13:41.200 --> 00:13:43.210
  • HE FIRST HAD TO GO THROUGH GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:13:43.230 --> 00:13:46.290
  • GETHSEMANE LITERALLY MEANS OLIVE PRESS.
  • 00:13:47.010 --> 00:13:50.210
  • IT WAS THERE OLIVES WERE GROWN AND IT WAS THERE
  • 00:13:50.230 --> 00:13:53.040
  • OLIVES WERE CRUSHED.
  • 00:13:53.060 --> 00:13:54.280
  • AND WHEN THEY'RE CRUSHED FLOWS FORTH THEIR PRECIOUS JUICE,
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:58.140
  • THEIR PRECIOUS OIL.
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:14:00.220
  • THAT IS THE SUBSTANCE THAT GETS SMEARED UPON THE HEAD
  • 00:14:00.240 --> 00:14:04.170
  • OF SOMEONE WHO'S ANOINTED TO SERVE.
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:07.020
  • I BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART, AS I'VE BEEN TELLING YOU,
  • 00:14:07.040 --> 00:14:09.220
  • THERE IS A GREAT CALLING ON YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:14:09.240 --> 00:14:11.270
  • GOD HAS GREAT PLANS FOR YOU, BUT TO GET THERE,
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:14.240
  • THERE IS GOING TO BE CRUSHING ON THE WAY TO ANOINTING.
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:20.190
  • THIS MIGHT SOUND VERY INSENSITIVE,
  • 00:14:20.210 --> 00:14:22.070
  • ESPECIALLY IF YOU'VE GONE THROUGH SOMETHING DIFFICULT
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:24.210
  • REAL RECENTLY.
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:26.070
  • IT MIGHT SEEM CALLOUS, BUT KNOW THIS IS COMING FROM MY HEART
  • 00:14:26.090 --> 00:14:28.290
  • WHEN I TELL YOU THIS.
  • 00:14:29.010 --> 00:14:30.180
  • IT IS ACTUALLY AN ENORMOUS HONOR TO BE TRUSTED WITH PAIN.
  • 00:14:30.200 --> 00:14:37.170
  • THAT'S WHAT PAUL TOLD THE PHILIPPIANS IN PHILIPPIANS 1.
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:41.070
  • HE SAID, "TO YOU IT HAS BEEN GRANTED
  • 00:14:41.090 --> 00:14:44.020
  • "NOT ONLY TO BELIEVE IN JESUS BUT ALSO TO SUFFER
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:47.140
  • "FOR HIS NAME."
  • 00:14:47.160 --> 00:14:49.050
  • THE WORD GRANTED IS THE GREEK WORD CHARIS,
  • 00:14:49.070 --> 00:14:51.210
  • AND OF COURSE YOU PROBABLY KNOW THAT MEANS GRACE.
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:54.090
  • GOD'S ABUNDANT RICHES GIVEN TO US IN CHRIST,
  • 00:14:54.110 --> 00:14:57.240
  • UNMERITED FAVOR.
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:14:59.190
  • THINK ABOUT WHAT THE PHILIPPIANS WERE BEING TOLD.
  • 00:14:59.210 --> 00:15:02.010
  • GUYS, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE GRACE TO SUFFER
  • 00:15:02.030 --> 00:15:06.100
  • FOR THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:15:06.120 --> 00:15:08.020
  • GOD HAS ALLOWED THIS TO COME AS A GIFT TO YOU.
  • 00:15:08.040 --> 00:15:10.290
  • WHY IS IT A GIFT?
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:12.090
  • BECAUSE THAT CRUSHING IS GOING TO RELEASE ANOINTING.
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:16.270
  • AND FOR DIFFICULTY YOU FACE, THERE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:19.190
  • NEW OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:15:19.210 --> 00:15:21.120
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD IS NEAR TO THE BROKEN HEARTED.
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:25.170
  • SO AS YOU GO THROUGH DIFFICULTY, GOD COMES CLOSE,
  • 00:15:25.190 --> 00:15:28.100
  • AND WHEN HE COMES CLOSE, WHAT FOLLOWS AFTER HIM?
  • 00:15:28.120 --> 00:15:31.220
  • FULLNESS AND JOY, PLEASURES EVER MORE.
  • 00:15:31.240 --> 00:15:34.190
  • THE NEARER HE GETS, THE LOUDER YOU CAN HEAR
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:37.000
  • HIS WONDERFUL VOICE.
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:39.120
  • THERE IS SO MUCH THAT COMES TO US WHEN WE ARE ALLOWED
  • 00:15:39.140 --> 00:15:41.270
  • TO SUFFER IN THE WILL OF GOD.
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:45.060
  • IT ACTUALLY SPEAKS HIGHLY OF WHAT GOD SEES IN YOU
  • 00:15:45.080 --> 00:15:49.240
  • THAT HE WOULD TRUST YOU WITH PAIN
  • 00:15:49.260 --> 00:15:51.180
  • AND IT SAYS A WHOLE LOT ABOUT HOW HE WANTS TO BRING
  • 00:15:51.200 --> 00:15:55.190
  • A LOT OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:58.000
  • YOU'RE ONLY GOING TO BE AS STRONG
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:16:00.080
  • AS HE ALLOWS YOU TO STRUGGLE.
  • 00:16:00.100 --> 00:16:02.170
  • SO EVEN THOUGH TODAY, WATCHING THIS, YOU MIGHT FEEL LIKE
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:05.130
  • GOD HAS GIVEN ME MORE THAN I CAN BEAR,
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:07.270
  • JUST KNOW THAT AS HE ALLOWS YOU TO BE CRUSHED,
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:10.280
  • HE IS ALSO ALLOWING YOU TO BE ANOINTED
  • 00:16:11.000 --> 00:16:13.220
  • FOR ALL THAT IS TO COME.
  • 00:16:13.240 --> 00:16:16.010
  • THE TRUTH IS, SUFFERING IS NOT AN OBSTACLE
  • 00:16:16.030 --> 00:16:19.250
  • TO BEING USED BY GOD.
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:21.250
  • IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE USED LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:27.160
  • AND THE HEART OF THIS BOOK AND THE HEART OF THIS PROGRAM
  • 00:16:27.180 --> 00:16:30.000
  • AND THE HEART OF THIS BEATING THING THAT IS
  • 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:32.230
  • THROUGH THE EYES OF A LION IS TO LOOK AT THE IMPOSSIBLE PAIN
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:36.030
  • IN YOUR LIFE, BUT TO BELIEVE GOD THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:36.050 --> 00:16:40.060
  • INCREDIBLE POWER.
  • 00:16:40.080 --> 00:16:43.070
  • THE LION'S ROAR WILL LEAD US HOME...
  • 00:16:43.090 --> 00:16:52.140
  • THE LION'S ROAR WILL LEAD US HOME...
  • 00:16:52.140 --> 00:16:59.110
  • ANNOUNCER: THOUGH DEATH BRINGS GRIEF,
  • 00:16:59.130 --> 00:17:00.260
  • IT ALSO BRINGS HOPE.
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:02.140
  • IN PASTOR LEVI LUSKO'S BEST SELLING BOOK,
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:04.280

  • 00:17:05.000 --> 00:17:07.080

  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:10.110
  • UNEXPECTEDLY WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:17:10.130 --> 00:17:13.010
  • WITH A RAW LOOK AT THE HEARTACHE AND DIFFICULT JOURNEY
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:15.250
  • OF HEALING THAT TOOK PLACE AFTER THAT LOSS,
  • 00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:18.120
  • LEVI LUSKO, PASTOR OF FRESH LIFE CHURCH,
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:21.010
  • UNPACKS THE IMPORTANCE OF SEEING THROUGH THE DARK PLACES
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:24.060

  • THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

  • BY SEEING DEATH THROUGH JESUS'S EYES, YOU'LL DISCOVER
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:31.120
  • HOW TO GROW THROUGH GRIEF, PRESS INTO GOD

  • IN THE MIDST OF UNDENIABLE PAIN, AND GAIN A CLEARER VIEW
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:37.020
  • OF ETERNITY.
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:38.160
  • WHATEVER YOU'RE WALKING THROUGH, A DOCTOR'S REPORT,
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:40.260
  • TRAGEDY, OR LOSS OF A LOVED ONE.
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:43.070

  • 00:17:51.120 --> 00:17:59.050
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:08.160
  • MY FAMILY AND I TOOK A VACATION TO HAWAII
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:10.190
  • NOT TOO LONG AGO, AND ON THE LICENSE PLATE
  • 00:18:10.210 --> 00:18:13.050
  • ON EVERY CAR YOU SEE, THERE'S A RAINBOW.
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:16.080
  • THAT'S BECAUSE THE ALOHA STATE IS KNOWN
  • 00:18:16.100 --> 00:18:18.090
  • FOR THEIR EPIC RAINBOWS.
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:20.140
  • WHAT WE NOTICED WAS THAT YOU COULD NEVER GET A RAINBOW
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:23.240
  • WITHOUT FIRST HAVING A STORM.
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:25.260
  • IT TAKES RAIN. IT TAKES CLOUDS.
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:28.200
  • IT TAKES A DAY WHERE YOU DON'T GET TO ENJOY THE BEACH
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:31.150
  • BECAUSE THE RAIN IS COMING DOWN,
  • 00:18:31.170 --> 00:18:33.200
  • TO GET TO THIS DAZZLING DISPLAY OF A PRISM
  • 00:18:33.220 --> 00:18:37.070
  • SHINING LIGHT BEAMS IN THE SKY.
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:40.030
  • THAT'S BECAUSE A RAINBOW IS PRODUCED BY THE LIGHT
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:42.240
  • PASSING THROUGH WATER PARTICLES AND CREATING
  • 00:18:42.260 --> 00:18:45.250
  • THIS AMAZING DISPLAY.
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:48.080
  • I'M GONNA GIVE YOU A COUPLE THOUGHTS ABOUT THE RAINBOW.
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:50.090
  • FIRST OF ALL, TO SEE ONE, YOUR BACK HAS TO BE TO THE SUN.
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:54.090
  • AND THAT'S NOT SO MUCH FUN, BECAUSE WE LIKE THE SUN.
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:57.100
  • WE LIKE SUNSHINE.
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:58.180
  • WE LIKE TIMES IN LIFE THAT FEEL LIKE SUMMER
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:00.170
  • AND HAPPINESS AND JOY.
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:02.160
  • HAVING YOUR BACK BE TO THE SUN, YOU CAN'T SEE IT,
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:05.030
  • BUT THE SUN THEN GETS TO SHINE THROUGH THE DARKNESS
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:08.100
  • THAT'S INTRUDED INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:10.150
  • THEN YOU HAVE THIS GREAT DISPLAY.
  • 00:19:10.170 --> 00:19:12.040
  • THE OTHER THING THAT'S AMAZING ABOUT RAINBOWS
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:13.270
  • IS THAT THEY'RE TECHNICALLY ALWAYS AROUND US.
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:17.010
  • RIGHT NOW IN YOUR HOME, THERE'S RAINBOW IN THE AIR.
  • 00:19:17.030 --> 00:19:21.090
  • THAT'S BECAUSE THE LIGHT PARTICLES THAT ALLOW YOU TO SEE,
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:24.060
  • THEY CONTAIN ALL THESE DIFFERENT COLORS.
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:26.140
  • ALL THIS DIFFERENT BEAUTIFUL, DAZZLING DISPLAY
  • 00:19:26.160 --> 00:19:29.240
  • OF GOD'S HANDIWORK.
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:31.100
  • IT JUST TAKES THE PRISM TO MAKE IT VISIBLE TO YOUR EYE.
  • 00:19:31.120 --> 00:19:35.280
  • SO RAINBOWS ARE ALWAYS THERE AND THEY'RE INTENSELY PERSONAL.
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:39.170
  • NO TWO PEOPLE SEE ANY RAINBOW THE EXACT SAME WAY.
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:43.000
  • WHEREVER YOU'RE ORIENTED, THE RAINBOW IS
  • 00:19:43.020 --> 00:19:45.140
  • WHAT YOUR EYE IS SEEING THROUGH THE PRISM
  • 00:19:45.160 --> 00:19:47.270
  • IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:19:47.290 --> 00:19:49.170
  • SO EVERY TIME YOU SEE A RAINBOW, GOD IS SAYING
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:52.230
  • THAT ONE WAS JUST FOR YOU.
  • 00:19:52.250 --> 00:19:55.170
  • SO THOSE STORMS ARE NOT FUN IN LIFE.
  • 00:19:55.190 --> 00:19:58.050
  • THEY'RE DEFINITELY NECESSARY.
  • 00:19:58.070 --> 00:20:00.080
  • ANOTHER WAY TO PUT IT WOULD BE TO PUT IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:02.130
  • NOTHING EVER GETS WASTED IN GOD'S ECONOMY.
  • 00:20:02.150 --> 00:20:06.040
  • I'VE BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU AND HELP YOU TO SEE
  • 00:20:06.060 --> 00:20:07.280
  • HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE, HOW YOU'RE A CHOSEN VESSEL OF GOD'S.
  • 00:20:08.000 --> 00:20:12.030
  • HOW HE, LIKE PAUL, WANTS YOU TO SPEAK
  • 00:20:12.050 --> 00:20:14.100
  • TO DIFFERENT AUDIENCES,
  • 00:20:14.120 --> 00:20:15.240
  • DIFFERENT PEOPLE YOU'RE MEANT TO TOUCH,
  • 00:20:15.260 --> 00:20:17.240
  • AND TO GET TO THIS GREAT PLACE OF INFLUENCE
  • 00:20:17.260 --> 00:20:20.170
  • AND PLATFORM AND STATUS AND OPPORTUNITY,
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:23.190
  • THERE WILL BE DIFFICULTY. YOUR CALLING INVOLVES SUFFERING.
  • 00:20:23.210 --> 00:20:27.110
  • THERE'S NO AVOIDING THAT.
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:28.250
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE FACING STORM CLOUDS,
  • 00:20:28.270 --> 00:20:30.230
  • JUST REMEMBER RAINBOW'S COMING.
  • 00:20:30.250 --> 00:20:33.030
  • GOD'S GOT A PLAN.
  • 00:20:33.050 --> 00:20:34.210
  • I THINK OF PAUL WHEN HE WAS SHIPWRECKED ON MALTA.
  • 00:20:34.230 --> 00:20:37.220
  • THAT'S NOT FUN.
  • 00:20:37.240 --> 00:20:39.050
  • LITERALLY HAVING TO HOLD ONTO A PIECE OF DEBRIS
  • 00:20:39.070 --> 00:20:42.110
  • FROM THE SHIP TO MAKE IT TO SHORE.
  • 00:20:42.130 --> 00:20:44.110
  • WHEN HE GETS THERE, WHAT DOES HE DO?
  • 00:20:44.130 --> 00:20:45.170
  • HE STARTS ENCOURAGING PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:47.060
  • HE SAYS, "EVERYONE'S HERE ON THE SHORE, THEY'RE COLD.
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:49.000
  • "I'M GONNA BUILD A FIRE."
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:50.150
  • SO HE STARTS GATHERING WOOD, AND AS HE DOES,
  • 00:20:50.170 --> 00:20:52.230
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HE GETS BIT BY A SNAKE.
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:55.070
  • YOU MIGHT THINK, "GOSH, IS THERE NOTHING SACRED?
  • 00:20:55.090 --> 00:20:58.190
  • "I WAS JUST TRYING TO ENCOURAGE THESE PEOPLE,
  • 00:20:58.210 --> 00:21:00.290
  • "I WAS PREACHING THE GOSPEL, I WAS PRISONER ON A SHIP,
  • 00:21:01.010 --> 00:21:03.150
  • "NOW I'M ON MALTA.
  • 00:21:03.170 --> 00:21:05.000
  • "I'M GETTING BIT BY A SNAKE FOR TRYING TO HELP SOMEONE."
  • 00:21:05.020 --> 00:21:08.010
  • BUT PAUL DIDN'T LOOK AT IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:09.190
  • HE SHOOK THE SNAKE OFF INTO THE FIRE
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:11.200
  • AND HE CONTINUED TO DO MINISTRY.
  • 00:21:11.220 --> 00:21:13.190
  • AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:21:13.210 --> 00:21:15.040
  • THE MAN ON THE ISLAND WHO WAS THE LEADING CITIZEN
  • 00:21:15.060 --> 00:21:17.290
  • HAD A FATHER WHO WAS SICK. PAUL GOT TO PRAY FOR HIM.
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:21.020
  • THE MAN GOT HEALED, AND PAUL LED THE MOST SIGNIFICANT,
  • 00:21:21.040 --> 00:21:24.000
  • INFLUENTIAL INDIVIDUAL ON THE ENTIRE ISLAND
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:26.220
  • TO FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:21:26.240 --> 00:21:28.020
  • THAT MAN CHOSE TO WELCOME PAUL INTO HIS HOUSE.
  • 00:21:28.040 --> 00:21:30.090
  • HE CHOSE TO LET A CHURCH GET BORN THERE,
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:32.130
  • AND THEY WERE ABLE TO SPEND A SEASON THERE
  • 00:21:32.150 --> 00:21:34.070
  • UNTIL THEY COULD SAFELY SAIL AWAY.
  • 00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:36.170
  • NOW, LET'S REWIND A SECOND.
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:39.290
  • GETTING BIT BY A SNAKE, GETTING SHIPWRECKED,
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:42.110
  • BEING A PRISONER, NONE OF THOSE THINGS ARE FUN,
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:44.290
  • BUT NONE OF THE MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:46.290
  • WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE
  • 00:21:47.010 --> 00:21:48.100
  • WITHOUT FIRST GOING THROUGH THE DIFFICULTY.
  • 00:21:48.120 --> 00:21:50.050
  • NO, RESULTS AREN'T ALWAYS IMMEDIATE.
  • 00:21:50.070 --> 00:21:52.100
  • IT'S NOT ALWAYS AS SIMPLE AS GET BIT BY A SNAKE,
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:54.090
  • WHERE'S PUBLIUS?
  • 00:21:54.110 --> 00:21:55.140
  • I'VE BEEN THROUGH THINGS WHERE IT'S LIKE,
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:57.270
  • I FELT THE SNAKE BITE, WHERE'S PUBLIUS'S DAD?
  • 00:21:57.290 --> 00:21:59.210
  • I DON'T SEE HIM.
  • 00:21:59.230 --> 00:22:00.290
  • I DON'T SEE ANY GOOD COMING OUT OF THIS.
  • 00:22:01.010 --> 00:22:02.100
  • JUST BE PATIENT AND SEE PAST THE SEED.
  • 00:22:02.120 --> 00:22:06.010
  • THE SEED?
  • 00:22:06.030 --> 00:22:07.010
  • YEAH, JESUS, HE SAID IN JOHN 12,
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:09.130
  • "UNLESS A SEED GOES INTO THE GROUND AND DIES,
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:11.200
  • "IT WILL NEVER BEAR FRUIT.
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:13.000
  • "BUT IF IT DOES DIE IN THE GROUND,
  • 00:22:13.020 --> 00:22:14.280
  • "IT WILL BRING FORTH AN AMAZING HARVEST."
  • 00:22:15.000 --> 00:22:17.120
  • LEARN IN LIFE TO SEE PAST THE SEED.
  • 00:22:17.140 --> 00:22:20.220
  • CERTAIN THINGS DIE.
  • 00:22:20.240 --> 00:22:22.070
  • CERTAIN THINGS DON'T GO LIKE YOU THOUGHT,
  • 00:22:22.090 --> 00:22:24.040
  • AND IT CAN BE TEMPTING TO FOCUS ON THAT SEED.
  • 00:22:24.060 --> 00:22:26.150
  • BUT DON'T STOP THERE.
  • 00:22:26.170 --> 00:22:27.280
  • SEE PAST THE SEED TO THE HARVEST IT CONTAINS.
  • 00:22:28.000 --> 00:22:32.020
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS THAT YOUR PAIN
  • 00:22:32.040 --> 00:22:34.240
  • IS YOUR MICROPHONE.
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:36.160
  • GOD WILL NOT WASTE A TRIAL IF YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO.
  • 00:22:36.180 --> 00:22:40.020
  • SO LEAN IN, LOOK AROUND, TRY AND EXAMINE
  • 00:22:40.040 --> 00:22:43.010
  • WHAT DOORS HAVE BEEN UNLOCKED BY YOUR SUFFERING
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:46.260
  • THAT YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:22:46.280 --> 00:22:48.240
  • ANY OTHER WAY.
  • 00:22:48.260 --> 00:22:50.230
  • ARE YOU ATTACHED TO A CHEMOTHERAPY BAG
  • 00:22:50.250 --> 00:22:53.040
  • THAT DRIP BY DRIP, YOU FEEL IS POISONING?
  • 00:22:53.060 --> 00:22:55.140
  • YOU FEEL IS HARMING?
  • 00:22:55.160 --> 00:22:57.000
  • ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS THE NEGATIVE SIDES OF IT
  • 00:22:57.020 --> 00:22:59.260
  • AND HOW IT'S HARD AND YOU LOST YOUR HAIR
  • 00:22:59.280 --> 00:23:01.220
  • OR YOU'RE HAVING TO GO TO A JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITY
  • 00:23:01.240 --> 00:23:05.240
  • TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD AGAIN.
  • 00:23:05.260 --> 00:23:07.280
  • THIS OR THAT THAT YOU'VE GONE THROUGH
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:09.120
  • THAT YOU'RE SO ANGRY ABOUT.
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:11.210
  • I KNOW THAT'S HARD AND I KNOW THAT'S DIFFICULT
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:14.120
  • BUT OPEN YOUR EYES.
  • 00:23:14.140 --> 00:23:16.040
  • WHO HAS GOD GIVEN YOU ACCESS TO THROUGH THE SNAKE BITE?
  • 00:23:16.060 --> 00:23:20.090
  • WHO THROUGH THE SHIPWRECK, WHO THROUGH THE CHEMO BAG,
  • 00:23:20.110 --> 00:23:22.160
  • WHO THROUGH THE WHEELCHAIR, WHO THROUGH BEING IN THE LINE
  • 00:23:22.180 --> 00:23:24.280
  • AT THE VA HOSPITAL DO YOU GET ACCESS TO
  • 00:23:25.000 --> 00:23:27.200
  • THAT WOULD TAKE A MIRACLE TO GET SOMEONE ELSE IN FRONT OF?
  • 00:23:27.220 --> 00:23:31.080
  • IN MY LIFE, THE NIGHT LENYA WENT TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:23:31.100 --> 00:23:34.270
  • WE WERE LEAVING THE EMERGENCY ROOM
  • 00:23:34.290 --> 00:23:36.260
  • AND WE HAD TO GET INTO OUR CAR SOMEHOW.
  • 00:23:36.280 --> 00:23:39.280
  • IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT THINGS
  • 00:23:40.000 --> 00:23:41.000
  • I CAN REMEMBER EVER DOING.
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:42.230
  • TO GET INTO THE CAR WITH MY WIFE AND OUR THREE DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:23:42.250 --> 00:23:46.060
  • AND TO LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR
  • 00:23:46.080 --> 00:23:47.120
  • AND SEE AN EMPTY CAR SEAT.
  • 00:23:47.140 --> 00:23:49.090
  • I COULD NOT BRING MYSELF TO PUT THE CAR IN REVERSE
  • 00:23:49.110 --> 00:23:53.020
  • AND DRIVE AWAY, KNOWING HER BODY WAS IN THAT HOSPITAL.
  • 00:23:53.040 --> 00:23:55.290
  • I KNEW HER SOUL WAS IN HEAVEN, BUT LOVED THAT LITTLE BODY.
  • 00:23:56.010 --> 00:23:59.030
  • WE SAW IT ON THE ULTRASOUND IN JENNY'S WOMB.
  • 00:23:59.050 --> 00:24:01.260
  • WE HUGGED IT AND SNUGGLED IT AND DRESSED THAT BODY.
  • 00:24:01.280 --> 00:24:06.290
  • THAT WAS HOW WE KNEW LENYA, SO TO LEAVE IT
  • 00:24:07.010 --> 00:24:09.020
  • WAS IMPOSSIBLY DIFFICULT. BUT AS WE WERE ABOUT TO LEAVE,
  • 00:24:09.040 --> 00:24:12.160
  • AS I WAS ABOUT TO SHIFT INTO REVERSE,
  • 00:24:12.180 --> 00:24:13.230
  • MY WIFE JENNY, SHE SAID, "LEVI, YOU NEED TO GO
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:16.020
  • "BACK IN THE HOSPITAL."
  • 00:24:16.040 --> 00:24:18.010
  • I SAID, "WHAT, DID WE FORGET SOMETHING?"
  • 00:24:18.030 --> 00:24:19.110
  • SHE SAID, "YEAH, YOU NEED TO INVITE ALL THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:24:19.130 --> 00:24:20.250
  • "IN THERE TO CHURCH."
  • 00:24:20.270 --> 00:24:22.150
  • AND I JUST STOPPED.
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:23.190
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
  • 00:24:23.210 --> 00:24:24.290
  • THE FACT THAT SHE WAS IN THAT MOMENT
  • 00:24:25.010 --> 00:24:26.210
  • THINKING ABOUT THAT HOSPITAL AND THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:24:26.230 --> 00:24:29.140
  • WHEN ALL I WAS THINKING ABOUT WAS MYSELF
  • 00:24:29.160 --> 00:24:31.240
  • AND HOW MUCH IT HURT AND MY LITTLE FAMILY,
  • 00:24:31.260 --> 00:24:33.200
  • SHE HAD HER EYES ON OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:33.220 --> 00:24:35.240
  • AND THEN SHE SAID SOMETHING.
  • 00:24:35.260 --> 00:24:36.280
  • SHE SAID, "LENYA WOULD WANT YOU TO."
  • 00:24:37.000 --> 00:24:39.020
  • SHE WAS RIGHT.
  • 00:24:39.040 --> 00:24:40.120
  • MY GIRLS, THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN SO GOOD AT REMINDING US
  • 00:24:40.140 --> 00:24:42.170
  • IF WE FORGET TO INVITE A WAITRESS TO CHURCH
  • 00:24:42.190 --> 00:24:44.160
  • OR TELL A GIRL AT CHECK OUT,
  • 00:24:44.180 --> 00:24:46.040
  • THEY WOULD ALWAYS TUG AT OUR SHIRT SLEEVE
  • 00:24:46.060 --> 00:24:48.190
  • AND, "HEY, YOU NEED TO INVITE THEM TO CHURCH."
  • 00:24:48.210 --> 00:24:50.050
  • SO I KNEW SHE WAS RIGHT, AND SHE HANDED ME
  • 00:24:50.070 --> 00:24:51.260
  • SOME INVITATIONS TO OUR CHRISTMAS SERVICE
  • 00:24:51.280 --> 00:24:54.090
  • THAT I HAD SPENT THE ENTIRE DAY WRITING THE SERMON,
  • 00:24:54.110 --> 00:24:56.100
  • TURN OFF THE DARK ABOUT, AND I WENT BACK IN THAT HOSPITAL
  • 00:24:56.120 --> 00:24:59.200
  • AND I DIDN'T HAVE ANY REASON TO BE THERE EXCEPT THAT TRIAL.
  • 00:24:59.220 --> 00:25:03.150
  • AND HAD THE TRIAL NOT HAPPENED, I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD
  • 00:25:03.170 --> 00:25:05.100
  • THE ABILITY TO WALK SO NORMALLY INTO THAT EMERGENCY ROOM
  • 00:25:05.120 --> 00:25:09.140
  • AND GO AND SPEAK TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:09.160 --> 00:25:11.030
  • MY PAIN BECAME MY PASSPORT AND IT BECAME MY MICROPHONE.
  • 00:25:11.050 --> 00:25:15.140
  • SO I WALKED UP TO THE FRONT DESK.
  • 00:25:15.160 --> 00:25:17.050
  • I WALKED UP TO PEOPLE I HAD JUST SPOKEN TO A MOMENT AGO
  • 00:25:17.070 --> 00:25:19.280
  • AND I SAID, "WELL, MY DAUGHTER LENYA,"
  • 00:25:20.000 --> 00:25:22.210
  • AND I HAD TEARS STREAMING DOWN MY FACE,
  • 00:25:22.230 --> 00:25:24.060
  • YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE THE SCENE, IT WAS CRAZY.
  • 00:25:24.080 --> 00:25:26.180
  • I SAID, "MY DAUGHTER LENYA, SHE JUST WENT TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:29.270
  • "HER BODY IS RIGHT THERE UNDER THAT SHEET.
  • 00:25:29.290 --> 00:25:32.240
  • "I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO CHURCH IN HER HONOR.
  • 00:25:32.260 --> 00:25:35.220
  • "WE'RE GONNA HAVE A CHRISTMAS SERVICE
  • 00:25:35.240 --> 00:25:37.060
  • "TO CELEBRATE JESUS'S BIRTH IN A COUPLE DAYS.
  • 00:25:37.080 --> 00:25:39.250
  • "AND I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE SPEAKING
  • 00:25:39.270 --> 00:25:42.060
  • "AND I DON'T KNOW HOW I'LL GET THROUGH IT."
  • 00:25:42.080 --> 00:25:44.030
  • I TOLD A COUPLE PEOPLE THIS.
  • 00:25:44.050 --> 00:25:45.150
  • I SAID, "IF YOU'LL COME, I'LL PREACH."
  • 00:25:45.170 --> 00:25:49.070
  • THEY TOOK THE INVITATIONS AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
  • 00:25:49.090 --> 00:25:52.230
  • WELL, WE RECEIVED AN EMAIL NOT TOO MANY DAYS LATER
  • 00:25:52.250 --> 00:25:57.160
  • FROM ONE OF THE RESPIRATORY THERAPISTS,
  • 00:25:57.180 --> 00:25:59.220
  • AND SHE SAID BASED ON THE INVITATION,
  • 00:25:59.240 --> 00:26:02.020
  • SHE CAME TO OUR CHURCH ON CHRISTMAS
  • 00:26:02.040 --> 00:26:04.110
  • AND SHE GAVE HER LIFE TO JESUS,
  • 00:26:04.130 --> 00:26:06.160
  • AND THAT IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL THINGS
  • 00:26:06.180 --> 00:26:08.010
  • SHE'S EVER EXPERIENCED, TO BE THERE
  • 00:26:08.030 --> 00:26:10.040
  • SEEING LENYA GO TO HEAVEN AND THEN TO BE INVITED.
  • 00:26:10.060 --> 00:26:13.230
  • I DON'T BELIEVE GOD BROUGHT MY DAUGHTER HOME
  • 00:26:13.250 --> 00:26:15.200
  • SO THAT COULD HAPPEN.
  • 00:26:15.220 --> 00:26:17.030
  • THERE'S ANY NUMBER OF WAYS THAT GOD COULD HAVE BROUGHT
  • 00:26:17.050 --> 00:26:19.270
  • THAT WOMAN TO A CHURCH SERVICE.
  • 00:26:19.290 --> 00:26:21.280
  • BUT I KNOW GOD GAVE US THE SPIRITUAL ANTENNAS UP.
  • 00:26:22.000 --> 00:26:24.210
  • MY WIFE SPECIFICALLY, AND MY WILLINGNESS TO GO IN THERE
  • 00:26:24.230 --> 00:26:27.150
  • AND SEE THAT PAIN BECOME THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:26:27.170 --> 00:26:30.140
  • TO SHOW LOVE TO SOMEBODY.
  • 00:26:30.160 --> 00:26:32.210
  • I JUST ENCOURAGE YOU TO LOOK
  • 00:26:32.230 --> 00:26:34.250
  • AT YOUR SUFFERING A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:26:34.270 --> 00:26:36.230
  • YEAH, YOUR BACK IS TO THE SUN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:26:36.250 --> 00:26:38.180
  • BUT THAT MEANS IT CAN PASS THROUGH THE PARTICLES
  • 00:26:38.200 --> 00:26:41.000
  • OF WATER THAT ARE IN THIS STORM IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:26:41.020 --> 00:26:44.000
  • AND IT CAN CAUSE THERE TO BE A PRISM
  • 00:26:44.020 --> 00:26:46.040
  • AND BEAUTY CAN RISE FROM THE ASHES.
  • 00:26:46.060 --> 00:26:48.060
  • NOTHING IS WASTED.
  • 00:26:48.080 --> 00:26:50.010
  • YOU SERVE A GOD WHO PUTS TO USE WHAT HE PUTS YOU THROUGH.
  • 00:26:50.030 --> 00:26:55.160
  • IN YOU I HAVE STRENGTH FOR TOMORROW...
  • 00:26:55.180 --> 00:27:02.030
  • MADE NEW BY THE GRACE OF THE FATHER...
  • 00:27:02.050 --> 00:27:09.260
  • IN YOU I HAVE ALL I COULD EVER NEED...
  • 00:27:09.280 --> 00:27:17.160
  • YOU'RE ALL I NEED
  • 00:27:17.180 --> 00:27:24.090
