  • 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:42.040
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:00:42.040 --> 00:00:42.260
  • WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORD
  • 00:00:42.260 --> 00:00:44.010

  • AND NOW WE ASK THAT YOU VISIT

  • US AS WE READ YOUR TRUTH
  • 00:00:48.190 --> 00:00:51.010
  • AND APPLY IT TO OUR LIVES.
  • 00:00:51.010 --> 00:00:53.010
  • IT'S IN YOUR PRECIOUS NAME
  • 00:00:53.010 --> 00:00:53.230
  • THAT WE ASK THESE THINGS.
  • 00:00:53.230 --> 00:00:55.150
  • AND IN FAITH BELIEVING,
  • 00:00:55.150 --> 00:00:56.120
  • WE RECEIVE THEM.
  • 00:00:56.120 --> 00:00:57.100
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:00:57.100 --> 00:00:58.230
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:00:59.220
  • (Praise the Lord!)
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:00.150
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:01:01.090 --> 00:01:04.090
  • WHEN YOU READ EPHESIANS 3:20,
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:06.140
  • IT'S A VERSE THAT MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:01:06.140 --> 00:01:08.080
  • CAN QUOTE BY HEART,
  • 00:01:08.080 --> 00:01:09.140
  • "TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO DO
  • 00:01:09.140 --> 00:01:11.010
  • EXCEEDINGLY AND ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:01:11.010 --> 00:01:12.160
  • ABOVE ALL THAT WE COULD ASK,
  • 00:01:12.160 --> 00:01:13.220
  • THINK, OR IMAGINE."
  • 00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:16.070
  • WE IMMEDIATELY GET INSPIRED
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:17.290
  • AT THE IDEA THAT GOD
  • 00:01:17.290 --> 00:01:19.040
  • HAS THE ABILITY TO OVERWHELM
  • 00:01:19.040 --> 00:01:21.080
  • OUR LIVES WITH HIS BLESSINGS
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:23.180
  • AND WITH HIS GOODNESS.
  • 00:01:23.180 --> 00:01:25.110
  • BUT IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:01:25.110 --> 00:01:26.250
  • THE WAY THAT GOD DOES THAT,
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:28.210
  • YOU HAVE TO CONNECT VERSE 21
  • 00:01:28.210 --> 00:01:31.030
  • WITH VERSE 20,
  • 00:01:31.030 --> 00:01:32.260
  • BECAUSE GOD IS NOT A ONE-MAN
  • 00:01:32.260 --> 00:01:35.140
  • SHOW.
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:36.060
  • WHILE HE IS ALL-SUFFICIENT,
  • 00:01:36.060 --> 00:01:37.260
  • AND HE IS IN NEED OF NO ONE,
  • 00:01:37.260 --> 00:01:40.040
  • THE WAY THAT GOD CHOOSES
  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:41.160
  • TO OPERATE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:01:41.160 --> 00:01:42.280
  • IS THROUGH HIS PEOPLE.
  • 00:01:42.280 --> 00:01:45.220
  • AND SO WHEN YOU WANT TO
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:47.070
  • RECOGNIZE GOD'S OVERWHELMING
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:49.020
  • GOODNESS IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:50.110
  • HIS EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:52.000
  • ABOVE ALL THAT YOU COULD ASK,
  • 00:01:52.000 --> 00:01:53.070
  • THINK, OR IMAGINE,
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:54.150
  • YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE CHURCH,
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:58.040
  • BECAUSE IT SAYS,
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:01:59.040
  • "TO WHOM HE RECEIVES GLORY IN
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:02.060
  • THE CHURCH IN ALL GENERATIONS."
  • 00:02:03.170 --> 00:02:06.170
  • WHEN YOU WANT THE EXCEEDING
  • 00:02:06.170 --> 00:02:07.180
  • GOODNESS OF GOD,
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:08.210
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:02:08.210 --> 00:02:10.150
  • TO RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:11.210
  • WHEN YOU WANT THE ABILITY TO BE
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:14.210
  • BLESSED ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:15.290
  • BEYOND WHAT YOU COULD ASK,
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:17.030
  • THINK, OR IMAGINE,
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:18.070
  • YOU'VE GOT TO BE IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:02:18.070 --> 00:02:20.020
  • TO RECEIVE IT,
  • 00:02:20.020 --> 00:02:21.140
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE GOD
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:23.000
  • OPERATES.
  • 00:02:23.000 --> 00:02:25.030
  • IN OUR MODERN WORLD,
  • 00:02:25.030 --> 00:02:25.280
  • WE'D MUCH RATHER HE HANDLED
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:27.100
  • THINGS BY HIMSELF,
  • 00:02:27.100 --> 00:02:28.180
  • BECAUSE MANY TIMES,
  • 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:29.140
  • WE DON'T TRUST THE CHURCH TO DO
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:31.120
  • WHAT GOD WANTS.
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:33.210
  • BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT HOW GOD
  • 00:02:33.210 --> 00:02:35.030
  • INFLUENCES REGIONS
  • 00:02:35.030 --> 00:02:36.200
  • OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:37.110
  • AND HOW HE CHANGES CITIES,
  • 00:02:37.110 --> 00:02:38.270
  • AND HOW HE TOUCHES LIVES,
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:40.190
  • IT'S ALWAYS THROUGH HIS CHURCH.
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:45.130
  • SO WE'VE GOT TO DECIDE TODAY
  • 00:02:45.130 --> 00:02:47.070
  • WHETHER OR NOT WE ARE GOING
  • 00:02:47.070 --> 00:02:48.130
  • TO BE HIS CHURCH OR WHETHER
  • 00:02:48.130 --> 00:02:50.180
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE A SUNDAY
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:51.270
  • SOCIAL CLUB.
  • 00:02:51.270 --> 00:02:54.160
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN CALL YOURSELF
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:02:55.250
  • A CHURCH,
  • 00:02:55.250 --> 00:02:56.140
  • BUT IF HE'S NOT THE HEAD
  • 00:02:56.140 --> 00:02:57.270
  • OF THE IT,
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:02:58.170
  • IF HE'S NOT IN CHARGE OF WHAT
  • 00:02:58.170 --> 00:03:00.080
  • WE'RE DOING HERE,
  • 00:03:00.080 --> 00:03:01.090
  • IF HE'S NOT THE REASON WE'RE
  • 00:03:01.090 --> 00:03:02.220
  • GATHERING,
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:03.200
  • THEN ALL WE ARE IS A WORSHIP
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:05.120
  • PIT STOP;
  • 00:03:05.120 --> 00:03:06.110
  • WE'RE NOT THE HOUSE
  • 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:07.120
  • OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:03:08.290 --> 00:03:11.290
  • THE REASON THAT THE CHURCH IS
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.000
  • BEING IGNORED IN THE CULTURE
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:15.060
  • IS BECAUSE WE HAVE TAKEN
  • 00:03:15.060 --> 00:03:16.110
  • THE POWER THAT GOD GAVE US
  • 00:03:16.110 --> 00:03:18.090
  • BY HIS HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:03:18.090 --> 00:03:19.190
  • WITH HIS WORD,
  • 00:03:19.190 --> 00:03:20.130
  • AND BY HIS PRESENCE,
  • 00:03:20.130 --> 00:03:21.220
  • AND WE'VE PUT IT ON THE SIDE
  • 00:03:21.220 --> 00:03:22.270
  • SHELVES SO THAT OUR AGENDA CAN
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:24.180
  • BE DONE INSTEAD OF HIS WILL
  • 00:03:24.180 --> 00:03:26.150
  • BEING DONE.
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:29.000
  • WE'VE LOST OUR INFLUENCE WHEN
  • 00:03:29.000 --> 00:03:30.250
  • A SOCIETY WILL REMOVE THE TEN
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:32.150
  • COMMANDMENTS FROM ITS CULTURE.
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:34.030
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS WE CANNOT
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:35.110
  • CURSE THE SOCIETY FOR TAKING
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:37.050
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OUT OF
  • 00:03:37.050 --> 00:03:38.090
  • CULTURE WHEN WE'RE NOT
  • 00:03:38.090 --> 00:03:39.140
  • PRACTICING THEM AND PREACHING
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:40.280
  • THEM IN THE PULPIT.
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:42.210
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:43.190
  • WE CANNOT THROW OUR HANDS UP
  • 00:03:43.190 --> 00:03:45.050
  • WHEN THE SUPREME COURT DECIDES
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.190
  • THAT SAME SEX COUPLES ARE NOW
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:48.230
  • LEGALLY ABLE TO BE MARRIED
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:50.140
  • WHENEVER WE DON'T HAVE PASTORS
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:51.260
  • IN PULPITS WHO CAN TELL YOU
  • 00:03:51.260 --> 00:03:53.230
  • WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:55.050
  • THE ISSUE.
  • 00:03:55.050 --> 00:03:57.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:00.150 --> 00:04:03.150
  • YOU SEE IF THE WORLD IS GOING
  • 00:04:03.150 --> 00:04:05.010
  • TO MEET THE GOD WHO CAN DO
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:06.160
  • EXCEEDINGLY, AND ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:04:06.160 --> 00:04:08.020
  • AND ABOVE ALL THAT WE COULD
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:08.280
  • ASK, THINK, OR IMAGINE,
  • 00:04:08.280 --> 00:04:10.160
  • THEN WE'VE GOT TO FULFILL
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:11.220
  • THE ROLE THAT WE HAVE BEEN
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:12.290
  • COMMISSIONED TO FULFILL
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:14.200
  • AND BE HIS HANDS TO DO THE WORK,
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:17.070
  • AND BE HIS FEET TO GO
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:18.260
  • WHERE THE NEEDS ARE,
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:19.290
  • AND TO BE HIS MOUTH THAT TELLS
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:21.220
  • THE WORLD WHO JESUS IS
  • 00:04:21.220 --> 00:04:23.150
  • AND WHAT HE CAN DO,
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:24.220
  • AND DO DEMONSTRATE HIS LOVE TO
  • 00:04:24.220 --> 00:04:26.220
  • ALL OF THOSE WHO DESPERATELY
  • 00:04:26.220 --> 00:04:28.090
  • NEED TO FEEL THE OVERWHELMING
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:30.060
  • PRESENCE OF A LOVING GOD.
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:33.080
  • THAT'S HOW THE WORLD MEETS
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:34.280
  • THIS EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:37.030
  • ABOVE ALL THAT YOU COULD ASK,
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:38.110
  • THINK, OR IMAGINE JESUS
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:40.040
  • IS WHEN WE, THE CHURCH,
  • 00:04:40.040 --> 00:04:41.260
  • START ACTING LIKE THE CHURCH.
  • 00:04:42.180 --> 00:04:45.180
  • BUT BEFORE WE BEGIN TO
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:46.150
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT AN EXTREME
  • 00:04:46.150 --> 00:04:47.230
  • CHURCH DOES,
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:48.290
  • WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT
  • 00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:50.010
  • THE BIBLE DEFINES AS A CHURCH.
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:53.030
  • BECAUSE IF YOU WERE TO ASK
  • 00:04:53.030 --> 00:04:54.000
  • THE PEOPLE TO YOUR RIGHT,
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:55.000
  • TO YOUR LEFT,
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:55.190
  • ACROSS THE STREET, AT WORK,
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:57.100
  • WHAT THE CHURCH IS,
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:04:58.140
  • THEY WOULD DESCRIBE THE CHURCH
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:05:00.020
  • IN A NUMBER OF WAYS.
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:01.080
  • SOME WOULD DESCRIBE THE CHURCH
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:02.210
  • BASED ON HOLIDAYS.
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:03.250
  • IT'S WHERE YOU GO FOR CHRISTMAS
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:05.020
  • AND EASTER.
  • 00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:07.210
  • OTHERS WOULD DESCRIBE
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:08.270
  • THE CHURCH BASED ON THEIR
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:10.040
  • TRADITION.
  • 00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:10.230
  • THEY WOULD TELL YOU HOW THEY
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:11.260
  • WERE RAISED.
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:12.280
  • AND THE TRADITIONS OF
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:14.050
  • THEIR RAISING WOULD GIVE THEM
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.130
  • THE DEFINITION OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:17.100
  • SOME PEOPLE WOULD SAY THAT
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:18.030
  • CHURCH IS A CRAZY, LOUD PLACE.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:20.060
  • OTHER PEOPLE WOULD SAY CHURCH
  • 00:05:20.060 --> 00:05:21.070
  • IS A VERY QUIET PLACE.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:22.250
  • OTHER PEOPLE WOULD SAY CHURCH
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:24.020
  • IS A VERY STRUCTURED PLACE.
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:25.200
  • OTHERS WOULD SAY IT'S A VERY
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:26.280
  • UNSTRUCTURED PLACE.
  • 00:05:26.280 --> 00:05:28.120
  • AND ALL OF THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:05:28.120 --> 00:05:29.100
  • BASED ON THEIR VERSION OF
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:31.120
  • THE NORMALCY OF THEIR CHURCH.
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:34.040
  • SOME WOULD CALL CHURCH,
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.140
  • BASED ON THEIR CULTURE,
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:36.180
  • THEY WOULD DESCRIBE
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:37.240
  • THE ETHNICITY OR THE REGION OF
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:39.270
  • THE WORLD THAT THEY GREW UP IN.
  • 00:05:39.270 --> 00:05:42.060
  • BUT THE FACT IS WHENEVER IT
  • 00:05:42.060 --> 00:05:43.280
  • COMES TIME TO DECIDE
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:45.030
  • WHAT THE CHURCH IS,
  • 00:05:45.030 --> 00:05:46.080
  • YOU CANNOT GO BY SOMEONE'S
  • 00:05:46.080 --> 00:05:47.250
  • TRADITION,
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:48.150
  • YOU CANNOT GO BY THEIR
  • 00:05:48.150 --> 00:05:49.210
  • EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:50.100
  • YOU CANNOT GO BY THEIR CULTURE;
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:52.040
  • YOU HAVE TO GO
  • 00:05:52.040 --> 00:05:53.030
  • BY WHAT GOD'S WORD SAYS.
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:57.000
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN JOHN 17:17,
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:59.050
  • "THY WORD IS TRUTH."
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:01.280
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:02.210
  • "THY WORD IS TRUTH."
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:05.060
  • THAT MEANS THAT THIS STANDARD
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:07.120
  • OVERCOMES YOUR CULTURAL
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:09.060
  • BACKGROUND.
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:10.000
  • IT OVERCOMES YOUR TRADITIONAL
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:11.190
  • UPBRINGING.
  • 00:06:11.190 --> 00:06:12.130
  • IT OVERCOMES YOUR EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:06:12.130 --> 00:06:14.200
  • IT OVERCOMES WHAT YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:16.220
  • IS RIGHT.
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.170
  • WHENEVER YOU READ IT
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:18.220
  • IN THIS BOOK,
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:19.190
  • ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:20.280
  • SUPERCEDED.
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:23.180
  • SO HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:25.010
  • ABOUT THE CHURCH.
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:26.200
  • THE CHURCH,
  • 00:06:26.200 --> 00:06:27.210
  • ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:29.060
  • IS BUILT UPON THE NAME OF GOD.
  • 00:06:30.130 --> 00:06:33.130
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:06:33.130 --> 00:06:34.080
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:06:34.080 --> 00:06:35.250
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:36.220
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN WHO BUILD
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:38.220
  • IT."
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:40.050
  • HE IS OUR CORNERSTONE.
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:42.090
  • HE IS OUR FOUNDATION.
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:44.240
  • HE IS THE REASON WHY WE EXIST.
  • 00:06:46.170 --> 00:06:49.170
  • NOT ONLY IS THE LORD
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:50.180
  • THE FOUNDATION,
  • 00:06:50.180 --> 00:06:51.230
  • BUT HIS SON JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:53.170
  • IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:57.070
  • EPHESIANS 5:23, IT SAYS,
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:59.210
  • "CHRIST IS THE HEAD
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.100
  • OF THE CHURCH."
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:02.020
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:02.280
  • "CHRIST IS THE HEAD
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:04.240
  • OF THE CHURCH."
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:06.180
  • NOW NOT ONLY DOES THIS GIVE HIM
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:07.290
  • A POSITION OF SUPREMACY,
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:10.250
  • BUT IT ALSO GIVES HIM A PURPOSE.
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:14.050
  • BELIEVE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:07:14.050 --> 00:07:14.290
  • JESUS CHRIST HAS A PURPOSE
  • 00:07:14.290 --> 00:07:16.140
  • IN THE CHURCH TODAY.
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:18.160
  • AS THE HEAD,
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:19.220
  • WHICHEVER WAY HE TURNS,
  • 00:07:19.220 --> 00:07:21.090
  • HE GUIDES US.
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:23.280
  • IF YOU'RE BODY AND YOUR HEAD
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:25.190
  • DON'T WORK TOGETHER,
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:26.180
  • YOU DON'T FUNCTION.
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:29.120
  • AND THE REASON THERE'S A LOT
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:30.150
  • OF DYSFUNCTION IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:07:30.150 --> 00:07:31.290
  • IN THE UNITED STATES AND
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:33.120
  • IN THE WORLD TODAY IS BECAUSE
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:35.020
  • THE HEAD IS DOING ONE THING
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.190
  • AND THE BODY IS DOING ANOTHER.
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:39.220
  • AND CHRIST IS THE HEAD
  • 00:07:39.220 --> 00:07:41.260
  • OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:07:41.260 --> 00:07:44.030
  • SO IN ORDER FOR US TO BE
  • 00:07:44.030 --> 00:07:45.080
  • QUALIFIED AS A CHURCH,
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:46.260
  • GOD HAS TO BE THE FOUNDATION,
  • 00:07:46.260 --> 00:07:49.080
  • AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:51.020
  • OUR LIVING EXAMPLE,
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:52.090
  • HAS TO BE THE HEAD.
  • 00:07:52.090 --> 00:07:53.160
  • THAT MEANS WHAT HE DOES, WE DO.
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.270
  • WHO HE IS, WE ARE.
  • 00:07:55.270 --> 00:07:57.200
  • THE WAY HE BEHAVES, WE EMULATE.
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:08:01.230
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO A PLACE ON
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:03.010
  • SUNDAY WHERE THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:08:03.010 --> 00:08:05.070
  • IS NOT MENTIONED,
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:06.130
  • THE NAME OF GOD IS NOT
  • 00:08:06.130 --> 00:08:07.210
  • WORSHIPED AND ADORED,
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:09.010
  • THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT PREACHED,
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:10.280
  • AND THE CROSS IS NOT THE SOURCE
  • 00:08:10.280 --> 00:08:12.090
  • OF SALVATION,
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:13.130
  • YOU MAY BE WASTING YOUR TIME,
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:15.090
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT WORSHIPING
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:16.260
  • THE KING OF KINGS
  • 00:08:16.260 --> 00:08:17.250
  • AND THE LORD OF LORDS.
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:19.130
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:20.120
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:26.230
  • SO A CHURCH HAS THESE THINGS
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:29.100
  • IN COMMON, GOD IS THE SOURCE,
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:31.140
  • JESUS IS THE FOCUS,
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:33.160
  • AND HIS CROSS IS PREACHED,
  • 00:08:33.200 --> 00:08:36.200
  • WHICH MEANS THAT AN EXTREME
  • 00:08:36.200 --> 00:08:38.190
  • CHURCH STANDS ON THE WORD
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:41.160
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:43.190
  • "THY WORD IS TRUTH."
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:46.100
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:47.040
  • "THY WORD IS TRUTH."
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:50.270
  • THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:52.030
  • IS WHERE WE RECEIVE FREEDOM.
  • 00:08:52.030 --> 00:08:53.190
  • "YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:55.140
  • THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE."
  • 00:08:55.180 --> 00:08:58.180
  • HERE'S WHAT PAUL SAID ABOUT
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:09:00.110
  • THE MESSAGE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:01.100
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:01.270
  • "GOD FORBID THAT I SHOULD BOAST
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:04.090
  • SAVE IN THE CROSS
  • 00:09:04.090 --> 00:09:05.120
  • OF JESUS CHRIST MY LORD."
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:07.230
  • IF THE CHURCH IN THE WORLD
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:08.280
  • IS GOING TO BE AN EFFECTIVE
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.030
  • CHURCH,
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:10.210
  • THE CROSS MUST BE FRONT
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:12.180
  • AND CENTER OF ITS THEOLOGY.
  • 00:09:12.180 --> 00:09:14.220
  • THE CROSS MUST BE
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:15.240
  • THE FOCAL POINT OF ITS DOCTRINE.
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.260
  • THE CROSS MUST BE EVERYTHING
  • 00:09:17.260 --> 00:09:20.010
  • THAT EVERYONE IN THE ROOM
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:21.210
  • UNDERSTANDS IS THE REASON
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:23.160
  • WHY WE CELEBRATE.
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:25.100
  • UNDERSTAND THIS;
  • 00:09:25.100 --> 00:09:26.150
  • THE CROSS IS NOT OUTDATED.
  • 00:09:26.150 --> 00:09:28.180
  • THE CROSS IS NOT GRUESOME.
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:30.170
  • THE CROSS IS NOT OLD FASHIONED.
  • 00:09:30.170 --> 00:09:32.210
  • THE CROSS IS WHERE I WAS
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.090
  • SET FREE.
  • 00:09:34.090 --> 00:09:35.100
  • THE CROSS IS WHERE THE CURSE
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:36.240
  • WAS BROKEN.
  • 00:09:36.240 --> 00:09:37.270
  • THE CROSS IS WHERE I BECAME
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:39.210
  • BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:41.100
  • OF THE LORD.
  • 00:09:41.100 --> 00:09:42.040
  • THE CROSS IS WHERE THE YOKE
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.130
  • OF BONDAGE WAS TAKEN OFF OF MY
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:45.100
  • LIFE, BROKEN AND DESTROYED,
  • 00:09:45.100 --> 00:09:47.110
  • NEVER TO BE PUT ON ME AGAIN.
  • 00:09:47.110 --> 00:09:49.100
  • THE CROSS ERASED MY PAST.
  • 00:09:49.100 --> 00:09:51.220
  • THE CROSS DESTROYED MY FEAR.
  • 00:09:51.220 --> 00:09:54.040
  • THE CROSS TOOK AWAY MY GUILT.
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:56.090
  • THE CROSS CARRIED MY SHAME.
  • 00:09:56.090 --> 00:09:58.160
  • THE CROSS IS WHERE I WAS
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:10:00.030
  • A BURDEN TO SIN
  • 00:10:00.030 --> 00:10:01.130
  • AND I AM SET FREE.
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:02.270
  • FOR WHOM THE SON SETS FREE
  • 00:10:02.270 --> 00:10:05.010
  • IS FREE INDEED!

  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: THE CHURCH
  • 00:11:51.140 --> 00:11:52.190
  • IS NOT ONLY BUILT UPON THE WORD;
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:54.030
  • THE EXTREME CHURCH IS SUBMITTED
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:56.070
  • TO THE LORDSHIP
  • 00:11:56.070 --> 00:11:57.070
  • OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:57.070 --> 00:11:59.210
  • WE NOT ONLY STAND ON HIS WORD.
  • 00:11:59.210 --> 00:12:02.100
  • THIS IS GOING TO BLOW YOUR
  • 00:12:02.100 --> 00:12:03.130
  • MIND; WE ACTUALLY OBEY IT.
  • 00:12:05.130 --> 00:12:08.130
  • HERE'S WHAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:10.250
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:12:10.250 --> 00:12:11.190
  • "WHY DO YOU CALL ME 'LORD'
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:13.150
  • UNLESS YOU KEEP
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:15.030
  • MY COMMANDMENTS?"
  • 00:12:15.030 --> 00:12:17.220
  • THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:12:17.220 --> 00:12:19.000
  • WHO ENJOY THE ATMOSPHERE AND
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:20.170
  • THE ENVIRONMENT OF BEING ABLE
  • 00:12:20.170 --> 00:12:21.290
  • TO SHOUT "LORD."
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:23.180
  • BUT WHENEVER YOU CALL HIM,
  • 00:12:23.180 --> 00:12:25.020
  • "LORD,"
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:25.190
  • YOU QUALIFY FOR THAT BY KEEPING
  • 00:12:25.190 --> 00:12:28.110
  • HIS COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:12:28.110 --> 00:12:30.110
  • AN EXTREME CHURCH DOESN'T ONLY
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:31.260
  • STAND ON HIS WORD;
  • 00:12:31.260 --> 00:12:33.070
  • THEY OBEY HIS WORD.
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:37.230
  • THE REASON THAT THE CHURCH
  • 00:12:37.230 --> 00:12:38.220
  • IS NOT SEEN AS LEGITIMATE
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:40.160
  • IN SOCIETY IS BECAUSE WE HAVE
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:42.080
  • FAILED TO PRACTICE
  • 00:12:42.080 --> 00:12:43.220
  • WHAT WE PREACH.
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:46.240
  • WE'VE BOUGHT INTO THE LIE
  • 00:12:46.240 --> 00:12:48.010
  • THAT WE DON'T HAVE A PLACE
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:49.140
  • IN THE CULTURE.
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:51.060
  • THEY'VE TOLD US FOR 50 YEARS
  • 00:12:51.060 --> 00:12:52.210
  • THAT THERE'S A SEPARATION
  • 00:12:52.210 --> 00:12:54.030
  • BETWEEN CHURCH AND STATE.
  • 00:12:54.030 --> 00:12:55.130
  • THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:56.200
  • AND IF IT WERE TRUE,
  • 00:12:56.200 --> 00:12:57.280
  • IT WOULDN'T MATTER ANYWAY.
  • 00:12:57.280 --> 00:13:00.170
  • WHY?
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:01.150
  • BECAUSE JESUS SAID YOU'RE
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:02.290
  • THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:02.290 --> 00:13:05.040
  • IT DIDN'T SAY THAT THERE'S
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:06.010
  • A CHURCH WORLD
  • 00:13:06.010 --> 00:13:06.270
  • WHERE YOU SHINE IN,
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:08.060
  • AND A DARK WORLD THAT YOU
  • 00:13:08.060 --> 00:13:09.140
  • HIDE IN.
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:11.120
  • HE SAID YOU'RE THE LIGHT
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:12.100
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:15.030
  • HERE'S WHAT PAUL SAID
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:16.140
  • IN 1 TIMOTHY 3,
  • 00:13:16.140 --> 00:13:17.150
  • HE SAID THAT THE CHURCH OF
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:18.200
  • THE LIVING GOD IS THE PILLAR
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:20.270
  • AND THE GROUND OF TRUTH,
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:23.170
  • MEANING THAT THE CHURCH IS
  • 00:13:23.170 --> 00:13:24.270
  • THE PLACE WHERE THE WHOLE
  • 00:13:24.270 --> 00:13:26.070
  • SOCIETY IS STRUCTURED UPON.
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:28.210
  • IF YOU REMOVE THE PILLAR,
  • 00:13:28.210 --> 00:13:30.100
  • YOU REMOVE THE SOCIETY.
  • 00:13:30.130 --> 00:13:33.130
  • WE HAVE A CULTURE THAT HAS LOST
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:35.190
  • ALL SENSE OF DIRECTION.
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:37.020
  • AND THE REASON THEY'VE LOST
  • 00:13:37.020 --> 00:13:38.050
  • ALL SENSE OF DIRECTION
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:39.150
  • IS BECAUSE THEY'VE COME UNTIED
  • 00:13:39.150 --> 00:13:41.080
  • FROM THE ANCHOR.
  • 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:42.050
  • AND IF THE CHURCH IS THE ANCHOR
  • 00:13:42.050 --> 00:13:43.250
  • OF TRUTH,
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:44.190
  • THE REASON WE'RE UNTIED
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:45.290
  • IS BECAUSE WE LET GO.
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:50.000
  • WE'RE THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:13:50.000 --> 00:13:50.220
  • OF THE TRUTH.
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:52.030
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:13:52.030 --> 00:13:52.200
  • "IF THE FOUNDATIONS BE
  • 00:13:52.200 --> 00:13:53.230
  • DESTROYED,
  • 00:13:53.230 --> 00:13:54.090
  • WHAT THEN CAN THE RIGHTEOUS DO?"
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:57.160
  • THE REASON THAT SOCIETY
  • 00:13:57.160 --> 00:13:58.200
  • IS FALLING APART IS BECAUSE
  • 00:13:58.200 --> 00:14:00.030
  • THE CHURCH IS NOT BEHAVING
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:02.020
  • LIKE WE BELIEVE.
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:04.280
  • WE'RE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.040
  • MAKING SINNERS COMFORTABLE THAN
  • 00:14:06.040 --> 00:14:08.000
  • WE ARE SPEAKING THE TRUTH
  • 00:14:08.000 --> 00:14:09.040
  • IN LOVE.
  • 00:14:09.040 --> 00:14:11.100
  • YOU SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:12.100
  • CHURCH TODAY IS THAT THE STREET
  • 00:14:12.100 --> 00:14:15.000
  • IS IMPACTING THE PEW,
  • 00:14:15.000 --> 00:14:16.160
  • AND THE PEW IS IMPACTING
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:17.290
  • THE PULPIT,
  • 00:14:17.290 --> 00:14:18.240
  • INSTEAD OF THE PULPIT IMPACTING
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:20.120
  • THE PEW,
  • 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:21.060
  • AND THE PEW IMPACTING
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.100
  • THE STREET.
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:25.070
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:30.110
  • IN A RECENT STUDY,
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:31.290
  • BARNA RESEARCH PUT OUT
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:33.140
  • INFORMATION THAT SAYS
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:34.140
  • 60% OF PASTORS FEEL PRESSURE
  • 00:14:34.140 --> 00:14:37.000
  • FROM THE CONGREGATION
  • 00:14:37.000 --> 00:14:38.050
  • TO BRING MESSAGES
  • 00:14:38.050 --> 00:14:39.070
  • THAT THEY ENJOY HEARING.
  • 00:14:40.170 --> 00:14:43.170
  • NOW DON'T GET ME WRONG;
  • 00:14:43.170 --> 00:14:44.090
  • I WANT YOU TO HAVE A GOOD TIME
  • 00:14:44.090 --> 00:14:45.180
  • WHEN YOU COME TO CHURCH.
  • 00:14:45.180 --> 00:14:46.200
  • BUT IF THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:14:46.200 --> 00:14:47.290
  • GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN,
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:49.120
  • THEN YOU'RE THE ONE THAT NEEDS
  • 00:14:49.120 --> 00:14:50.180
  • TO CHANGE.
  • 00:14:50.180 --> 00:14:52.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:57.080 --> 00:15:00.100
  • AND THAT MAY BE CALLED "BLUNT"
  • 00:15:00.100 --> 00:15:02.120
  • BY SOME, BUT IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:05.200
  • EPHESIANS 4:15 SAYS,
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:08.030
  • "SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE."
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:11.220
  • NOW I LOVE YOU,
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:13.080
  • BECAUSE GOD SAYS
  • 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:13.290
  • I HAVE TO LOVE YOU.
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:16.020
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:17.080
  • AND THE TRUTH IS HIS WORD
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:22.020
  • IS NOT ALWAYS COMFORTING.
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:25.270
  • BUT EVERY TIME IT MAKES YOU
  • 00:15:25.270 --> 00:15:27.040
  • UNCOMFORTABLE,
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:28.100
  • IF YOU'LL ADHERE TO IT,
  • 00:15:28.100 --> 00:15:29.230
  • IT'LL MAKE YOU BETTER.
  • 00:15:30.240 --> 00:15:33.240
  • HOW MANY OF YOU ARE LOOKING
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:34.180
  • FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT
  • 00:15:34.180 --> 00:15:35.120
  • DOCTOR'S VISIT?
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:36.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:39.060
  • GOOD.
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:40.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:41.060
  • I HAD TWO HANDS IN THE FIRST
  • 00:15:41.060 --> 00:15:42.120
  • SERVICE AND I DON'T WANT
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:44.000
  • TO KNOW WHY, BUT --
  • 00:15:44.000 --> 00:15:45.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:45.170 --> 00:15:47.210
  • I'VE HARDLY EVER FOUND A PERSON
  • 00:15:47.210 --> 00:15:49.200
  • WHO SAYS,
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:50.070
  • "YOU KNOW I'VE GOT A PHYSICAL
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:51.270
  • IN 30 DAYS;
  • 00:15:51.270 --> 00:15:52.270
  • I'M JUST LOOKING FORWARD TO IT."
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:55.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:56.020
  • I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE
  • 00:15:56.020 --> 00:15:56.270
  • THAT OLD GUY.
  • 00:15:56.270 --> 00:15:58.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:15:59.130
  • AND THE REASON THAT YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:00.200
  • LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PHYSICAL
  • 00:16:00.200 --> 00:16:02.180
  • IS BECAUSE IN THAT ENVIRONMENT,
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:04.130
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GET TO HEAR
  • 00:16:04.130 --> 00:16:05.090
  • SOME TRUTH.
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:07.070
  • YOU'RE GOING TO WALK IN
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:07.280
  • AND STAND ON THE SCALE,
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:08.280
  • AND THE DOCTOR'S GOING TO GO,
  • 00:16:08.280 --> 00:16:10.240
  • UH-HUM.

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:14.030
  • AND THEN HE'S GOING TO ASK YOU
  • 00:16:14.030 --> 00:16:16.090
  • IF YOU'RE STILL PUTTING SALT
  • 00:16:16.090 --> 00:16:17.050
  • ON YOUR FOOD WHILE HE TAKES
  • 00:16:17.050 --> 00:16:18.170
  • YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE.
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:19.110
  • AND BEFORE YOU CAN ANSWER,

  • HOW MANY CUPS OF COFFEE
  • 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:27.190
  • DO YOU DRINK?
  • 00:16:27.190 --> 00:16:28.070
  • AND WHAT DO YOU DO
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:28.220
  • ON A DAILY BASIS?
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:29.160
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE HIM
  • 00:16:29.160 --> 00:16:30.070
  • ALL OF THESE ANSWERS
  • 00:16:30.070 --> 00:16:31.060
  • THAT YOU'VE BEEN REHEARSING
  • 00:16:31.060 --> 00:16:32.050
  • LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO THE STAND
  • 00:16:32.050 --> 00:16:33.120
  • IN A COURTROOM.
  • 00:16:33.120 --> 00:16:35.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:35.050 --> 00:16:36.120
  • AND ALL DAY LONG,
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:37.080
  • HE'S JUST GOING TO GO,

  • UH-HUM,

  • UH-HUM.

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:41.150 --> 00:16:42.260
  • AND THEN AT THE END OF IT,
  • 00:16:42.260 --> 00:16:43.270
  • HE'S GOING TO SIT DOWN WITH
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:45.010
  • YOU.
  • 00:16:45.010 --> 00:16:45.230
  • AND WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:47.020
  • HE'S GOING TO TELL YOU THE --
  • 00:16:47.020 --> 00:16:48.150
  • WHAT?
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:49.230
  • -- TRUTH.
  • 00:16:49.230 --> 00:16:52.110
  • AND HE'S GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:53.090
  • TRUTH; THAT IF YOU TAKE IT
  • 00:16:53.090 --> 00:16:55.110
  • AND YOU APPLY IT,
  • 00:16:55.110 --> 00:16:56.180
  • IT'S GOING TO SET YOU FREE.

  • FREE FROM WHAT?
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:00.250
  • SICKNESS.
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:03.270
  • AND THE ONLY REASON YOU GO BACK
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:06.170
  • IS BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT THAT
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:08.120
  • TRUTH IS ABSOLUTELY NOT WHAT
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:11.120
  • YOU WANT BUT WHAT YOU NEED.
  • 00:17:13.010 --> 00:17:16.010
  • AND THE BIBLE TELLS US IN
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:16.280
  • THE SAME WAY THAT WE SHALL KNOW
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:18.240
  • THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:20.030
  • SHALL SET US FREE.
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:22.060
  • IN THE BIBLE, SICKNESS IS SIN,
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:24.210
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS CONCERNED
  • 00:17:24.210 --> 00:17:26.040
  • ABOUT YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:27.070
  • AND WHENEVER IT COMES TO SIN,
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:28.290
  • THERE IS INDEED A GREAT
  • 00:17:28.290 --> 00:17:30.110
  • PHYSICIAN NAMED JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:17:30.110 --> 00:17:32.110
  • AND HE HAS A TRUTH FOR YOU.
  • 00:17:32.110 --> 00:17:33.290
  • HIS TRUTH IS THIS;
  • 00:17:33.290 --> 00:17:35.130
  • "WHOM THE SON SETS FREE
  • 00:17:35.130 --> 00:17:37.120
  • IS FREE INDEED."
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:38.280
  • YOU CAN BE SET FREE FROM
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:40.110
  • SICKNESS, FROM POVERTY,
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:42.040
  • FROM THE PAST,
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:43.060
  • FROM ALL THINGS TODAY.
  • 00:17:43.060 --> 00:17:44.230
  • BUT BEFORE YOU CAN,
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:46.050
  • YOU'VE GOT TO RECEIVE HIM,
  • 00:17:46.050 --> 00:17:47.210
  • YOU'VE GOT TO BELIEVE HIM,
  • 00:17:47.210 --> 00:17:49.010
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO OBEY HIM!
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:51.020
  • YOU DON'T DO THAT; DEAL'S OFF!
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:55.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:18:00.290
  • YOU MEAN JESUS DOESN'T ACCEPT ME
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:02.260
  • AS I AM?
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:03.220
  • HE INDEED DOES.
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:05.250
  • HERE'S THE TRUTH.
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:06.220
  • "WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS,
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:09.020
  • CHRIST DIED FOR US."
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:12.100
  • THE SECOND YOU START TO SHARE
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:13.130
  • THE TRUTH,
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:14.080
  • THE WORLD WANTS TO SAY YOU'RE
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:15.120
  • EXTREMELY JUDGMENTAL.
  • 00:18:15.120 --> 00:18:16.270
  • NO, IT'S EXTREME HONESTY.
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:18.260
  • THERE'S NOT ONE RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:20.090
  • AMONG YOU.
  • 00:18:20.090 --> 00:18:22.050
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'VE
  • 00:18:22.050 --> 00:18:23.020
  • BEEN IN CHURCH 50 YEARS
  • 00:18:23.020 --> 00:18:24.080
  • OR FIVE MINUTES.
  • 00:18:24.080 --> 00:18:25.140
  • NO, NOT ONE IS WORTHY OF A
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:28.090
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:18:28.090 --> 00:18:31.050
  • BUT GOD LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:33.020
  • HE SENT HIS SON TO REDEEM YOU.
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:35.290
  • "REDEEM" MEANS THAT HE ACTUALLY
  • 00:18:35.290 --> 00:18:37.200
  • PAID THE PRICE TO PURCHASE YOU,
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:39.280
  • BECAUSE SIN AND SATAN,
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:41.180
  • THEY OWNED YOU.
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:42.250
  • YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:43.270
  • THAT YOU WERE AN INDEPENDENT
  • 00:18:43.270 --> 00:18:45.040
  • OPERATOR, BUT THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:47.030
  • YOU WERE A SLAVE TO SIN,
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:48.290
  • BECAUSE WHATEVER SIN TOLD YOU
  • 00:18:48.290 --> 00:18:50.180
  • TO DO, YOU DID.
  • 00:18:50.180 --> 00:18:51.280
  • IF SIN TOLD YOU TO DRINK IT,
  • 00:18:51.280 --> 00:18:53.120
  • YOU TOOK IT.
  • 00:18:53.120 --> 00:18:54.030
  • IF SIN TOLD YOU TO BE AN
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:55.090
  • ADDICT, YOU WERE BOUND IN IT.
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:56.250
  • IF SIN TOLD YOU TO TAKE IT,
  • 00:18:56.250 --> 00:18:58.120
  • YOU DID.
  • 00:18:58.120 --> 00:18:59.040
  • BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T HAVE A
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:00.130
  • CHOICE, YOU DID WHAT SIN SAID.
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:04.020
  • BUT GOD, WHO LOVED YOU,
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:05.010
  • SENT HIS SON THAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:06.260
  • CALLS "THE LAMB OF GOD SLAIN
  • 00:19:06.260 --> 00:19:08.130
  • FROM THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:09.160
  • EARTH, WHO TAKES AWAY THE SINS
  • 00:19:09.160 --> 00:19:11.180
  • OF THE WORLD."
  • 00:19:11.180 --> 00:19:12.100
  • UPON MOUNT CALVARY,
  • 00:19:12.100 --> 00:19:14.010
  • HE WAS STRETCHED WIDE
  • 00:19:14.010 --> 00:19:16.070
  • AND HUNG HIGH.
  • 00:19:16.070 --> 00:19:17.100
  • AND HE LOOKED UP INTO HEAVEN,
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:18.210
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:19:18.210 --> 00:19:19.290
  • "FATHER, IT IS FINISHED."
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:22.170
  • WHEN HE DECLARED THOSE WORDS,
  • 00:19:22.170 --> 00:19:24.160
  • HE PAID THE PRICE.
  • 00:19:24.160 --> 00:19:26.010
  • AND HE WENT TO HELL'S DUNGEONS.
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:28.110
  • AND HE WENT TO THE SLAVE MARKET
  • 00:19:28.110 --> 00:19:30.000
  • THAT SATAN HAD SET UP,
  • 00:19:30.000 --> 00:19:31.160
  • AND HE POINTED TO YOU.
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:33.030
  • IN THE FUTURE, HE SAID,
  • 00:19:33.030 --> 00:19:34.140
  • THE ADDICT, I'LL BUY THEM.
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:36.110
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:36.260
  • THE ONE WHO'S BEEN ABUSED,
  • 00:19:36.260 --> 00:19:38.020
  • I'LL TAKE THEM.
  • 00:19:38.020 --> 00:19:39.030
  • HE SAID, THE TORMENTED,
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:40.170
  • BRING THEM.
  • 00:19:40.170 --> 00:19:41.090
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:19:41.090 --> 00:19:42.020
  • THOSE WHO ARE LOST AND HURTING,
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.170
  • THE BROKEN, THE HOPELESS,
  • 00:19:43.170 --> 00:19:45.020
  • THE ADDICTED, THE ALCOHOLIC,
  • 00:19:45.020 --> 00:19:47.020
  • THE HOMOSEXUAL, THE REJECTED,
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:49.070
  • I WANT THEM ALL.
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:50.280
  • AND WHENEVER THE PRICE
  • 00:19:50.280 --> 00:19:52.020
  • WAS NEGOTIATED,
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:53.130
  • HE SAID, PAID IN FULL.
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:55.090
  • AND THE TRUTH IS,
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:56.090
  • WHOM THE SON SETS FREE
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:58.170
  • IS FREE INDEED!
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:20:01.030
  • GIVE THE LORD A HANDCLAP
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:02.170
  • OF PRAISE!
  • 00:20:02.170 --> 00:20:04.040
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:11.240
  • BUT BECAUSE THE CHURCH
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:13.260
  • HAS WALKED AWAY FROM PREACHING
  • 00:20:13.260 --> 00:20:15.210
  • THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:20:15.210 --> 00:20:17.160
  • WE'VE REMOVED THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:20:17.160 --> 00:20:19.050
  • OF TRUTH.
  • 00:20:19.050 --> 00:20:20.260
  • AND IF WE'RE GOING TO GET BACK
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:22.010
  • TO BEING A CHURCH,
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:23.080
  • WE'VE GOT TO BE EXTREMELY
  • 00:20:23.080 --> 00:20:24.260
  • COMMITTED TO PREACHING THE WORD.
  • 00:20:25.130 --> 00:20:28.130
  • PAUL TOLD TIMOTHY,
  • 00:20:28.130 --> 00:20:29.260
  • "PREACH THE WORD."
  • 00:20:29.260 --> 00:20:31.190
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:20:31.190 --> 00:20:32.240
  • "PREACH THE WORD."
  • 00:20:32.240 --> 00:20:35.020
  • WHY?
  • 00:20:35.020 --> 00:20:36.170
  • BECAUSE THERE WOULD COME A TIME
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:37.140
  • WHEN THEY HAD ITCHING EARS
  • 00:20:37.140 --> 00:20:38.280
  • AND THEY WOULD NOT ENDURE
  • 00:20:38.280 --> 00:20:40.020
  • SOUND DOCTRINE.
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:42.050
  • RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:42.220
  • WE SEE A CULTURE
  • 00:20:42.220 --> 00:20:43.150
  • WITH ITCHING EARS.
  • 00:20:43.150 --> 00:20:44.140
  • TELL ME WHAT I WANT;
  • 00:20:44.140 --> 00:20:46.060
  • DON'T TELL ME WHAT I NEED.
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:50.220
  • WE'VE GOT AN IDEA THAT
  • 00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:52.020
  • EVERYTHING IN LIFE CAN BE
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.150
  • THE WAY WE WANT IT.
  • 00:20:53.150 --> 00:20:56.040
  • WE'VE GOT A BURGER KING MINDSET,
  • 00:20:56.040 --> 00:20:57.200
  • "HAVE IT YOUR WAY."
  • 00:20:57.200 --> 00:20:59.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:59.130 --> 00:21:01.130
  • THAT'S NOT HOW GOD'S WORD WORKS.
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:05.270
  • WHEN YOU TAKE THAT ATTITUDE
  • 00:21:05.270 --> 00:21:06.240
  • TOWARDS THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:21:06.240 --> 00:21:07.270
  • YOU READ SOMETHING,
  • 00:21:07.270 --> 00:21:09.030
  • AND YOU SAY, "OH, I LIKE THAT.
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:10.100
  • I MEAN EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY,
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:12.060
  • ABOVE ALL I COULD ASK, THINK,
  • 00:21:12.060 --> 00:21:13.120
  • OR IMAGINE; I'LL TAKE TWO."
  • 00:21:13.120 --> 00:21:15.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:17.290
  • BRING ALL THE TITHES INTO
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:19.080
  • THE STOREHOUSE?
  • 00:21:19.080 --> 00:21:20.060
  • TAKE THAT.
  • 00:21:20.060 --> 00:21:21.060

  • THAT SHALL HE REAP."
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:32.010
  • OH, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:21:32.010 --> 00:21:34.020
  • TURN THE PAGE.
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:34.230
  • TURN THE PAGE.

  • YOU DON'T GET TO HAVE IT YOUR

  • WAY, BECAUSE IT'S HIS WORD;
  • 00:21:47.260 --> 00:21:49.120
  • THEREFORE, IT'S HIS WAY.
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:51.180
  • (Amen!)
  • 00:21:51.180 --> 00:21:52.250
  • AN EXTREME CHURCH IS COMMITTED
  • 00:21:52.250 --> 00:21:54.030
  • TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:54.220
  • AN EXTREME CHURCH IS COMMITTED
  • 00:21:54.220 --> 00:21:57.190

  • "LOVE ONE ANOTHER."
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:02.080
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.

  • "LOVE ONE ANOTHER."
  • 00:22:03.110 --> 00:22:05.110
  • JESUS SAID,

  • "LOVE ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:06.190
  • AS I HAVE LOVED YOU."
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:09.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS VERY CLEARLY,

  • "A HOUSE DIVIDED CANNOT STAND."
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:15.030
  • WE'RE DIVIDED ABOUT EVERYTHING
  • 00:22:15.030 --> 00:22:17.040
  • IN THE HOUSE OF GOD.
  • 00:22:17.040 --> 00:22:18.200
  • WE'RE DIVIDED BY OUR RACE.
  • 00:22:18.200 --> 00:22:20.210
  • WE'RE DIVIDED BY OUR CLASS.
  • 00:22:20.210 --> 00:22:22.080
  • WE'RE DIVIDED BY OUR TRADITION.

  • WE'VE TAKEN ALL OF THOSE THINGS
  • 00:22:27.240 --> 00:22:29.060
  • AND WE'VE MADE THEM MORE
  • 00:22:29.060 --> 00:22:30.100
  • IMPORTANT THAN GOD'S COMMAND
  • 00:22:30.100 --> 00:22:32.120
  • TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:22:32.120 --> 00:22:35.110
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE

  • WHAT'S YOUR CULTURE?
  • 00:23:57.070 --> 00:23:58.040
  • ARE YOU TRADITIONAL?
  • 00:23:58.040 --> 00:23:58.240
  • ARE YOU CONTEMPORARY?
  • 00:23:58.240 --> 00:23:59.210
  • I SAID, YEAH.
  • 00:23:59.210 --> 00:24:01.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:24:01.180 --> 00:24:02.210

  • HE SAID, "IF I BE LIFTED UP,
  • 00:24:12.200 --> 00:24:15.090
  • I WILL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME."
  • 00:24:15.150 --> 00:24:18.150
  • THE REASON WHY WE HAVE WHAT WE
  • 00:24:18.150 --> 00:24:20.150
  • HAVE AT CORNERSTONE IS BECAUSE
  • 00:24:20.150 --> 00:24:22.250

  • AND THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
  • 00:24:30.000 --> 00:24:31.110
  • THE REASON WHY YOU CAN COME
  • 00:24:31.110 --> 00:24:32.280
  • INTO THIS ATMOSPHERE AND BE
  • 00:24:32.280 --> 00:24:34.200

  • NOT SEE ON A REGULAR BASIS BUT
  • 00:24:36.150 --> 00:24:38.100
  • FEEL THE KINDRED OF BROTHERLY
  • 00:24:38.100 --> 00:24:40.000
  • LOVE IS BECAUSE JESUS HAS BEEN

  • LIFTED UP.
  • 00:24:42.050 --> 00:24:43.050
  • AND IF JESUS IS LIFTED UP,
  • 00:24:43.050 --> 00:24:44.210
  • HE'LL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO HIM.
  • 00:24:44.230 --> 00:24:47.230
  • HE'LL DRAW THOSE
  • 00:24:47.230 --> 00:24:48.130

  • AND HE'LL CHANGE THE WORLD!

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:25:16.120 --> 00:25:19.120
  • HOW MUCH DOES JESUS PUT
  • 00:25:19.120 --> 00:25:21.130
  • PREMIUMS ON OUR UNITY?
  • 00:25:21.230 --> 00:25:24.230
  • HE SAID IN HIS FINAL PRAYER
  • 00:25:24.230 --> 00:25:26.110
  • BEFORE HE LEFT THE EARTH,
  • 00:25:26.110 --> 00:25:27.140
  • HE SAID, O LORD,
  • 00:25:27.140 --> 00:25:29.010
  • THAT THEY WOULD BE ONE
  • 00:25:29.010 --> 00:25:31.170
  • EVEN AS YOU AND I ARE ONE.
  • 00:25:31.170 --> 00:25:34.080
  • SO THAT THE WORLD WOULD KNOW
  • 00:25:34.080 --> 00:25:37.050
  • YOU SENT ME.
  • 00:25:37.130 --> 00:25:40.130
  • UNDERSTAND THAT WHENEVER
  • 00:25:40.130 --> 00:25:41.190
  • WE WORK TOGETHER IN UNITY,
  • 00:25:41.190 --> 00:25:43.280
  • THE WORLD BELIEVES IN JESUS.
  • 00:25:44.080 --> 00:25:47.080
  • BUT WHENEVER WE STAY SEPARATED,
  • 00:25:47.080 --> 00:25:49.090
  • THEY DON'T EVEN THINK
  • 00:25:49.090 --> 00:25:50.000
  • HE EXISTS.
  • 00:25:51.030 --> 00:25:54.030
  • THE MORE WE ALLOW OURSELVES
  • 00:25:54.030 --> 00:25:55.120
  • TO BE DIVIDED,
  • 00:25:55.120 --> 00:25:56.120
