  • If he's the rock,suppose they kill the rock.
  • 00:04:47.670 --> 00:04:55.845
  • If he was the first voiceI heard when I got saved,
  • 00:04:55.878 --> 00:04:59.549
  • and 3.000 people wereadded to the church that day,
  • 00:04:59.582 --> 00:05:03.686
  • and he is my mentor,and he is my teacher.

  • I have nursed at thebreast of the milk of his word.
  • 00:05:07.557 --> 00:05:13.563
  • And if they kill him,where will I get the milk?
  • 00:05:13.596 --> 00:05:19.402
  • Separation anxiety disorder hasset in and the church has gone
  • 00:05:19.435 --> 00:05:26.376
  • into fervent prayer.
  • 00:05:26.409 --> 00:05:30.446

  • 00:05:46.295 --> 00:05:51.434
  • him with power and with clarity.
  • 00:05:51.467 --> 00:05:54.804
  • Let me talk tosomebody over here.
  • 00:05:54.837 --> 00:05:56.439
  • Sometimes God will allow you tobe threatened in an area of your
  • 00:05:56.472 --> 00:06:01.477
  • life because you'vegotten too comfortable.
  • 00:06:01.511 --> 00:06:04.647
  • You've gotten too relaxed.
  • 00:06:04.680 --> 00:06:06.582
  • You've gotten too laid back.

  • You think you can'tdo it by yourself.
  • 00:06:09.018 --> 00:06:11.087
  • You think you'vegot enough money,
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:12.955
  • you got enough education,you got to enough power,

  • but then all hell breaks looseto drive you to your knees,
  • 00:06:15.525 --> 00:06:20.696
  • because God wantsto wake you up.
  • 00:06:20.730 --> 00:06:26.035
  • The church folk is over inthe house jumping around,
  • 00:06:29.972 --> 00:06:32.575
  • hollerin' and praying, andsinging and clapping
  • 00:06:32.608 --> 00:06:35.111
  • their hands.
  • 00:06:35.144 --> 00:06:36.646
  • And Peter is inthe prison asleep,
  • 00:06:36.679 --> 00:06:42.084
  • and in the middleof his sleeping,
  • 00:06:42.118 --> 00:06:45.421
  • let me first provethat sleeping is faith.
  • 00:06:45.455 --> 00:06:49.258
  • That sleeping isan act of faith.
  • 00:06:49.292 --> 00:06:53.930
  • You remember, when Jesuswas in the storm on the boat,
  • 00:06:53.963 --> 00:06:58.134
  • and everybodyelse was hysterical?
  • 00:06:58.167 --> 00:07:01.070
  • And the Bible says, "Jesuswas asleep on a pillow."
  • 00:07:01.103 --> 00:07:04.207
  • God will take you throughtrouble and you'll be sleep
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:07.610
  • while other peopleare going crazy,
  • 00:07:07.643 --> 00:07:10.279
  • because you believe that Godhas already got
  • 00:07:10.313 --> 00:07:13.716
  • that thing worked out.
  • 00:07:13.749 --> 00:07:15.251
  • Who am I talking to?
  • 00:07:15.284 --> 00:07:17.119
  • The very fact that you getsleep is a sign of faith.
  • 00:07:17.153 --> 00:07:26.529
  • So the Bible says that "theangel appeared in the prison,
  • 00:07:26.562 --> 00:07:31.868
  • let me know that hell can't makea prison God can't break into,"
  • 00:07:31.901 --> 00:07:41.911
  • even yours; your prison.
  • 00:07:45.314 --> 00:07:50.887
  • Hell can't make a prisonthat God can't break into,
  • 00:07:50.920 --> 00:07:56.292
  • even yours.
  • 00:07:56.325 --> 00:07:59.595
  • The angel appeared and the 16soldiers didn't do nothin' about
