  • LISTEN, SOME YEARS AGO, I JUST HAD A MEMORY OF THIS RETURN TO
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:15.010
  • ME HERE RECENTLY, I WAS THINKING ABOUT WHEN MELISSA WAS A
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:19.110
  • TODDLER, SHE WAS ABOUT 2 YEARS OLD AND STILL IN A BABY BED. AND
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:26.120
  • SHE JUST KEPT HOLLERING FOR ME AND HOLLERING FOR ME AND
  • 00:07:26.130 --> 00:07:32.030
  • HOLLERING FOR ME. I PUT HER TO BED 50.000 TIMES. BUT WHAT MY
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:35.130
  • KIDS WOULD ALWAYS DO THAT ALWAYS GOT ME, I'M STARVING, I'M
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:39.230
  • STARVING, I'M STARVING. WELL, I HAD COMPANY AND I HAD ALREADY
  • 00:07:39.240 --> 00:07:45.030
  • PUT HER TO BED OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND I HAD FRIED CHICKEN
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:48.050
  • FOR SUPPER AND I JUST LITERALLY WENT UP TO HER CRIB AND HANDED
  • 00:07:48.060 --> 00:07:52.250
  • HER A CHICKEN LEG. [LAUGHTER] THE NEXT MORNING WHEN I GOT MY
  • 00:07:52.260 --> 00:07:58.290
  • DARLING BABY OUT OF THE CRIB, I HAD TO PULL OUT A GNAWED UP
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:08:03.280
  • CHICKEN BONE WITH MY CHILD. AND I TELL YOU, WE'VE GOT TO DO A
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:08.050
  • BETTER JOB THAN HANDING OUR DAUGHTER'S A CHICKEN LEG.
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:14.000
  • [LAUGHTER] WE'VE GOT TO BE IN THE SCRIPTURES. WE'VE GOT TO BE
  • 00:08:14.010 --> 00:08:17.220
  • IN THE MEAT OF GOD'S WORD AND SEE WHAT HE WOULD DO WITH A
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:22.150
  • GENERATION WHO TOOK HIM AT HIS WORD. I KNOW YOU'VE JUST BEEN
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:26.060
  • SEATED BUT I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO STAND AGAIN BECAUSE THIS IS
  • 00:08:26.070 --> 00:08:28.220

  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:51.130
  • CAPTIVATE US? WOULD YOU GIVE US INSIGHT INTO WHO YOU ARE AND
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:57.200
  • WHAT YOU CAN DO IN A WAY THAT JARS US OUT OF OUR COMPLACENCY,
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:09:03.040

  • SAY TO YOU TODAY THAT YOU ARE EVERYTHING TO US, LORD. EVEN
  • 00:09:08.170 --> 00:09:12.160
  • WHEN WE DON'T KNOW IT, LORD. EVEN WHEN WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE

  • SAVIOR AND LORD. EVERYBODY SAY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN. BE SEATED
  • 00:09:31.170 --> 00:09:35.290
  • PLEASE. REVELATION 1. I'D LIKE TO READ TO YOU VERSES 9-18. I,
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:46.200
  • JOHN, YOUR BROTHER AND PARTNER IN THE TRIBULATION AND THE
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:49.170
  • KINGDOM AND THE PATIENT ENDURANCE, THAT ARE IN JESUS,
  • 00:09:49.180 --> 00:09:54.170
  • WAS ON THE ISLAND OF PATMOS ON ACCOUNT OF THE WORD OF GOD AND
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:57.210
  • THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS. AND I WAS IN THE SPIRIT ON THE LORD'S
  • 00:09:57.220 --> 00:10:01.050
  • DAY AND I HEARD BEHIND ME A LOUD VOICE LIKE A TRUMPET, SAYING,
  • 00:10:01.060 --> 00:10:04.070
  • WRITE WHAT YOU SEE IN A BOOK AND SEND IT TO THE 7 CHURCHES; TO
  • 00:10:04.080 --> 00:10:08.260
  • EPHESUS, AND TO SMYRNA, AND PERGAMOS, AND THYATIRA, AND TO
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:13.140
  • SARDIS, AND TO PHILADELPHIA, AND LAODICEA. THEN I TURNED TO SEE
  • 00:10:13.150 --> 00:10:17.140
  • THE VOICE THAT WAS SPEAKING TO ME AND ON TURNING I SAW 7 GOLDEN
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:21.000
  • LAMPSTANDS. AND IN THE MIDST OF THE LAMPSTANDS, ONE LIKE A SON
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:24.190
  • OF MAN, CLOTHED WITH A LONG ROBE WITH A GOLDEN SASH AROUND HIS
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:29.130
  • CHEST. THE HAIRS OF HIS HEAD WERE WHITE LIKE WOOL, LIKE SNOW;
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:33.020
  • HIS EYES WERE LIKE A FLAME OF FIRE. HIS FEET WERE LIKE
  • 00:10:33.030 --> 00:10:37.110
  • BURNISHED BRONZE REFINED IN A FURNACE. AND HIS VOICE WAS LIKE
  • 00:10:37.120 --> 00:10:41.080
  • THE ROAR OF MANY WATERS. IN HIS RIGHT HAND HE HELD 7 STARS AND
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:46.000
  • FROM HIS MOUTH CAME A SHARP TWO-EDGED SWORD, AND HIS FACE
  • 00:10:46.010 --> 00:10:48.270
  • WAS LIKE THE SUN SHINING IN FULL STRENGTH. AND WHEN I SAW HIM, I
  • 00:10:48.280 --> 00:10:52.220
  • FELL AT HIS FEET AS THOUGH DEAD. BUT HE LAID HIS RIGHT HAND ON ME
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:59.010
  • AND SAID FEAR NOT, I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST AND THE
  • 00:10:59.020 --> 00:11:05.080
  • LIVING ONE. I DIED AND BEHOLD I AM ALIVE FOREVERMORE AND I HAVE
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:12.280
  • THE KEYS. I HAVE THE KEYS. JOHN, THE BELOVED DISCIPLE. THE ONLY
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:23.150
  • REASON WE KNOW TO CALL THE BELOVED DISCIPLE IS BECAUSE WE
  • 00:11:23.160 --> 00:11:27.170
  • FIND IT IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN. HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO EVER
  • 00:11:27.180 --> 00:11:32.020
  • CALLED HIMSELF THE BELOVED DISCIPLE. WHICH I DON'T KNOW IF
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:35.060
  • THAT HITS YOU A LITTLE BIT STRANGE, BUT IT'S KIND OF LIKE
  • 00:11:35.070 --> 00:11:38.020
  • SEEING MOSES CALL HIMSELF THE MOST HUMBLE PERSON ON EARTH WAY
  • 00:11:38.030 --> 00:11:42.210
  • BACK IN THE 1ST 5 BOOKS. SO THESE KINDS OF THINGS JUST KIND
  • 00:11:42.220 --> 00:11:46.050
  • OF SEND ME SOMEHOW; SOMETHING ABOUT HIM KNOWING, KNOWING TO
  • 00:11:46.060 --> 00:11:49.220
  • THE MARROW OF HIS BONES. DO YOU KNOW TO THE MARROW OF YOUR BONES
  • 00:11:49.230 --> 00:11:54.190
  • THAT YOU ARE BELOVED OF CHRIST? THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN CALLED,
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:12:02.060
  • HE'D BEEN A FOLLOWER ORIGINALLY OF JOHN THE BAPTIZER AND HAD
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:09.030
  • FOLLOWED JESUS WHEN JOHN SAID THERE IS ONE GREATER AND THE ONE
  • 00:12:09.040 --> 00:12:13.070
  • WHO IS GREATER IS HE. BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY
  • 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:18.250
  • THE SINS OF THE WORLD, YOU FOLLOW HIM. AND HE DID. HE WAS
  • 00:12:18.260 --> 00:12:25.220
  • BELIEVED TO BE THE YOUNGEST OF ALL THE DISCIPLES. AND HE'S
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:29.250
  • BELIEVED TO BE THAT BECAUSE THERE IS A SCENE AT THE PASSOVER
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:33.180
  • MEAL WHERE HE IS LEANED AGAINST THE CHEST OF JESUS AND WHERE HE
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:37.200
  • ASKED THE QUESTIONS. AND IN THE PASSOVER MEAL IN JUDAISM, THE
  • 00:12:37.210 --> 00:12:43.090
  • YOUNGEST ONE AT THE TABLE ASKS THE QUESTIONS AND SITS TO THE
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:47.180
  • SIDE OF THE HEAD OF THE TABLE. MOST LIKELY THAT WAS HIM. CALLED
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:53.050
  • THE SON OF THUNDER ALONG WITH HIS BROTHER BY CHRIST HIMSELF.
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:58.210
  • CHRIST KNICKNAMED MANY OF HIS DISCIPLES, AND THIS ONE, A SON
  • 00:12:58.220 --> 00:13:04.110
  • OF THUNDER. AND HERE HE WAS, EXILED LONG AFTER THE REST OF
  • 00:13:04.120 --> 00:13:10.110
  • THE APOSTLES HAD GIVEN THEIR LIVES FOR THE FAITH. EVER ONE OF
  • 00:13:10.120 --> 00:13:15.180
  • THEM MARTYRED BUT HIM AND HE FINDS HIMSELF, BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:21.220
  • TESTIMONY OF THE WORD, THE WORD OF GOD AND THE TESTIMONY OF
  • 00:13:21.230 --> 00:13:27.130
  • JESUS CHRIST, HE FINDS HIMSELF EXILED, PUNISHED, ON A VERY
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:33.210
  • STARK ISLAND; NO CARRIBEAN, BEAUTIFUL SANDS, NO BEACHES, NO
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:41.190
  • TOWELS, NOTHING. OUT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF A WILDERNESS
  • 00:13:41.200 --> 00:13:46.110
  • ISLAND WONDERING WHY IN THE WORLD AM I STILL HERE? WHAT AM I
  • 00:13:46.120 --> 00:13:57.010
  • DOING HERE? AFTER ALL THE REST OF THEM HAD SOMEHOW BEEN COUNTED
  • 00:13:57.020 --> 00:14:06.260
  • WORTHY TO GIVE THEIR LIVES FOR THE SAKE OF CHRIST, HERE WAS
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:13.280
  • JOHN, EXILED. ISOLATED. COMPLETELY ALONE. WHY DO YOU
  • 00:14:13.290 --> 00:14:24.000
  • JOHN, EXILED. ISOLATED. COMPLETELY ALONE. WHY DO YOU
  • 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:24.010
  • JOHN, EXILED. ISOLATED. COMPLETELY ALONE. WHY DO YOU
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:29.170
  • WAIT? DID YOU NOTICE WITH ME IN REVELATION 1 IN THE READING THAT
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:34.200
  • IT SAYS, I, JOHN, IN VERSE 9, YOUR BROTHER AND PARTNER IN THE
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:39.030
  • TRIBULATION, AND THE KINGDOM AND THE PATIENT ENDURANCE THAT ARE
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:42.230
  • IN JESUS WAS ON THE ISLAND CALLED PATMOS ON ACCOUNT OF THE
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:45.080
  • WORD OF GOD AND THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS? I'M GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:14:45.090 --> 00:14:48.060
  • SOMETHING RIGHT NOW, DO NOT THINK FOR A MINUTE THAT THE WORD
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:51.060
  • OF GOD AND THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS WILL NOT GET YOU INTO SOME
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:54.140
  • TROUBLE BECAUSE IT WILL. OH, YES IT WILL. AND I WONDER TODAY, ARE
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:14:59.050
  • WE, ARE WE PREPARED TO GET INTO THE KIND OF TROUBLE THAT THE
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:06.130
  • WORD OF GOD AND THE TESTIMONY OF CHRIST CAN GET US IN? WILL WE
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:11.120
  • HAVE THE KIND OF LOVE OUT THERE IN A LOST WORLD FOR PEOPLE TO
  • 00:15:11.130 --> 00:15:15.210
  • BEAR WITH US ENOUGH TO HEAR WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY? AND IF WE EVER
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:21.120
  • WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO FEEL EXILED AND ALONE ON PLANET
  • 00:15:21.130 --> 00:15:26.010
  • EARTH, LISTEN, YOU CAN BE COVERED IN PEOPLE AND FEEL
  • 00:15:26.020 --> 00:15:28.290
  • ENTIRELY ALONE, COMPLETELY EXILED HERE. WHEN WAS THE LAST
  • 00:15:29.000 --> 00:15:33.140
  • TIME IT HIT YOU, WE ARE NOT HOME HERE? TO THE END OF THIS AGE
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:47.020
  • THERE HAS TO BE A GENERATION THAT HOLDS TIGHT TO THE WORD OF
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:52.290
  • GOD AND TO THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS TO THE POINT OF BEING
  • 00:15:53.000 --> 00:15:57.290
  • EXILED INTO SUCH ISOLATION THAT WE THINK THAT IT COULD BREAK US.
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:16:05.000
  • I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT IT. I WANT YOU TO HEAR IT. HAVE YOU
  • 00:16:05.010 --> 00:16:08.020
  • NOTICED WITH ME, HAVE YOU GOTTEN AN UPDATE ON YOUR PHONE, IF
  • 00:16:08.030 --> 00:16:12.220
  • YOU'VE GOT AN IPHONE YOU'VE HAD THIS UPDATE, WHERE NOW WHEN YOU
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:16.200
  • TEXT CERTAIN EMOJIS POP UP FOR YOU? IT'S DRIVING ME ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:16:16.210 --> 00:16:22.160
  • CRAZY. FOR ONE THING, I DON'T USE THEM. FOR ANOTHER THING, IF
  • 00:16:22.170 --> 00:16:26.080
  • I WAS GOING TO USE THEM, THEN YOU KNOW WHAT? DON'T TELL ME
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:29.260
  • WHAT EMOJI TO USE. IT MAKES ME MAD! I SIMPLE TOLD SOMEONE THAT
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:36.220
  • I FOUND SOMETHING AT TARGET YESTERDAY. IT BROUGHT UP A
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:39.260
  • LITTLE TARGET. EVERYTHING I EVER DO. WHEN I TELL MY DAUGHTERS I
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:44.090
  • LOVE THEM, IT BRINGS UP A RED LITTLE HEART. I DON'T WANT TO DO
  • 00:16:44.100 --> 00:16:46.070
  • A RED LITTLE HEART. I DON'T WANT TO DO, I WANT TO HAVE MY OWN
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:49.270
  • REACTION. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THE WORD OF GOD HAD BEEN WRITTEN
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:55.070
  • WITH THE EMOJIS ALREADY SET INTO IT? [LAUGHTER] WHERE WE GOT TO
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:17:00.150
  • JUST HAVE SUGGESTED TO US HOW WE COULD REACT TO THE WORD OF GOD?
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:10.260
  • THIS IS A MAN WHO GOT A FRESH REVELATION AND FELL ON THE
  • 00:17:10.270 --> 00:17:16.260
  • GROUND AS DEAD. I WANT YOU TO CRAWL INTO THESE PASSAGES WITH
  • 00:17:16.270 --> 00:17:21.230
  • ME TODAY. I WANT YOU TO SMELL THEM. I WANT YOU TO FEEL THE
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:25.230
  • HEAT. I WANT YOU TO IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE. I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:17:25.240 --> 00:17:29.260
  • GO FROM THAT SENSE OF BEING IN COMPLETE ISOLATION AND
  • 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:34.020
  • ALONENESS, TO HEARING A VOICE BEHIND YOU THAT SOUNDS LIKE A
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:37.180
  • TRUMPET AND TURNING AROUND AND SEEING SOMETHING THAT IS WHAT
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:43.080
  • THE DICTIONARY WOULD CALL INEFFABLE, UNSPEAKABLE; NO WAY
  • 00:17:43.090 --> 00:17:51.190
  • TO EXPRESS IN LANGUAGE THAT COULD GO ON PRINT WHAT IN THE
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:18:01.290
  • WORLD YOU HAD EXPERIENCED IN ITS FULLNESS. I REMEMBERED YESTERDAY
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:12.110
  • WHEN I WAS PUTTING THIS MESSAGE TOGETHER, I THOUGHT, WAIT, I
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:17.160
  • WROTE SOMETHING ON THIS YEARS AGO. AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHEN,
  • 00:18:17.170 --> 00:18:22.060
  • I'M NOT TRYING TO SELL YOU A BOOK CAUSE I DON'T EVEN THINK
  • 00:18:22.070 --> 00:18:25.050
  • YOU CAN GET THIS, IT'S STUPID AND DUMB ANYWAY, BUT IT HAS
  • 00:18:25.060 --> 00:18:27.220
  • SOMETHING IN IT. I WANT TO READ THIS TO YOU BECAUSE IT DESCRIBES
  • 00:18:27.230 --> 00:18:32.210
  • THIS VERY MOMENT. AND I JUST WANT YOU TO GO WITH ME, JUST
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:36.110
  • CREATIVELY GO WITH ME HERE FOR JUST A MOMENT. THIS IS HIM, THIS
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:40.240
  • IS JOHN, THE BELOVED OUT ON THIS ISLAND. OLD AND TIRED AND
  • 00:18:40.250 --> 00:18:49.100
  • PROBABLY FEELING FORGOTTEN BY MOST OF THE WORLD THAT HE HAD
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:56.120
  • KNOWN. MY EYES GREW DIM, MY STRENGTH GROWS FAINT, I WONDER,
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:19:01.000
  • LORD, WHY DO YOU WAIT? THAT DAY WITH JOHN, WHEN YOU WALKED PAST,
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:06.150
  • I WAS SO YOUNG, COULD FOLLOW FAST. WE LIVED, IT SEEMED, AT
  • 00:19:06.160 --> 00:19:10.130
  • WHIRLWIND'S PACE, WHIRLING WONDERS PLACE TO PLACE. SO FAR
  • 00:19:10.140 --> 00:19:14.250
  • REMOVED, SOMETIMES I DREAM I'M THERE AGAIN. SO REAL IT SEEMS, I
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:19.070
  • LAUGH WITH YOU. I SEE YOU WALK ON WATERS. I HEAR YOU TALK. I
  • 00:19:19.080 --> 00:19:23.150
  • LEAN AGAINST YOUR SHOULDER THERE. I HEAR YOU BREATHE AWAY
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:26.240
  • MY CARES. DREAMS ROOSTER CROWS, I JERKED AWAKE, TEARS STAINED MY
  • 00:19:26.250 --> 00:19:31.280
  • FACE. WHY DO YOU WAIT? MY THUNDER'S GONE. THE YOUNG HAVE
  • 00:19:31.290 --> 00:19:36.010
  • COME. THEIR PLACE TO TAKE, AND FAST TO RUN. MY PASSIONS STILL,
  • 00:19:36.020 --> 00:19:40.050
  • I HAVE NO TASTE FOR ALL BUT YOU. WHY DO YOU WAIT? MY SKIN WRAPS
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:44.140
  • BONE, MY BONES THEY ACHE. I REACH FOR YOU, WHY DO YOU WAIT?
  • 00:19:44.150 --> 00:19:49.040
  • AN ANSWER COMES, THOUGH NONE CAN HEAR, WHILE OLD MAN WEEPS, THE
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:54.200
  • LAMB DRAWS NEAR. SON OF THUNDER, IF YOU KNEW, HELL'S ANGRY RUMBLE
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:59.150
  • OVER YOU. MY FAITHFUL SON, TIS EASIER STILL TO JUMP THE CLIFF
  • 00:19:59.160 --> 00:20:03.220
  • THAN CLIMB THE HILL. YOU STAYED THE COURSE WHEN DAYS WORE ON,
  • 00:20:03.230 --> 00:20:07.070
  • LOVE BURNED WHITEHOT WHEN LIFE GREW LONG. LONG AFTER FAITH A
  • 00:20:07.080 --> 00:20:11.220
  • FRIEND SPARKED SIGHT AND VICTOR'S CROWNS REPLACED THEIR
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:15.100
  • PLIGHT. YET YOU REMAINED AND LOVED AGAIN. WHY DO I WAIT, MY
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:20.200
  • FAITHFUL FRIEND? BECAUSE THE SIGHT PREPARED FOR YOU IS BEYOND
  • 00:20:20.210 --> 00:20:25.010
  • WHITE AND BEYOND BLUE. I DIM YOUR EYES, LIFE'S STAGE GROWS
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:28.170
  • DARK. ANTICIPATE TILL CURTAINS PART, THE OLD MAN SOBBED, HEARD
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:33.110
  • NOT A WORD, ROSE FROM ROCK BED, PAINED JOINTS STIRRED. LET'S
  • 00:20:33.120 --> 00:20:38.020
  • SEE, HE MUSED, WHAT DAY IS THIS? AH, SABBATH'S PASSED, LORD'S DAY
  • 00:20:38.030 --> 00:20:43.270
  • IT IS. HE GROANED DEEP PRAYERS. HE THUNDERED PRAISE. A MAN IN
  • 00:20:43.280 --> 00:20:47.220
  • SPIRIT ON THE LORD'S DAY. THEN STARTLING CAME A VOICE BEHIND,
  • 00:20:47.230 --> 00:20:51.150
  • LIKE TRUMPET TALKING, VOICE DIVINE. JOHN WHIRLED AROUND AND
  • 00:20:51.160 --> 00:20:55.180
  • THERE HE WAS, THE ONE WHO IS, THE ONE WHO WAS. HIS BODY FROZE.
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:59.160
  • HIS SOUL AFRET, A SIGHT TOO MUCH, HE FELL AS DEAD. THEN
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:05.000
  • HEALING VOICE SPOKE LIFE TO LUNG. TAKE SCROLL AND WRITE THE
  • 00:21:05.010 --> 00:21:09.040
  • VISIONS, SON! AM I NOT STILL THE GOD OF TIME? MAKE I MISTAKES?
  • 00:21:09.050 --> 00:21:16.000
  • HAVE I NO MIND? IF SOVEREIGN, I SHOULD CHOOSE TO WAIT, WHILE YOU
  • 00:21:16.010 --> 00:21:19.280
  • YET LIVE, ANTICIPATE. PREPARE, OH BRIDE, LET EYES GROW DIM. DIE
  • 00:21:19.290 --> 00:21:25.250
  • LESSER SIGHTS, CAST EYES ON HIM. SPEND YOURSELF TILL STAGE IS
  • 00:21:25.260 --> 00:21:30.200
  • SET, BELOVED DISCIPLE, LOVE STILL YET. JUST WHEN YOU THINK
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:39.100
  • YOU HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN, JUST WHEN YOU THINK SOMEHOW YOU MUST
  • 00:21:39.110 --> 00:21:45.050
  • NOT HAVE BEEN READY WHEN THE BATTON WAS PASSED, AND IF WE'RE
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:53.130
  • WILLING, THERE IN OUR ALONENESS, TO KNOW THE FRESH REVELATION OF
  • 00:21:53.140 --> 00:22:07.060
  • CHRIST. REVELATION 1 TALKS ABOUT PATIENT ENDURANCE IN THE KINGDOM
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:14.260
  • AND THE TRIBULATION THAT COME WITH WALKING THIS THING OUT WITH
  • 00:22:14.270 --> 00:22:19.150
  • JESUS. HERE'S WHAT I WANT TO DO IN THESE LAST FEW MINUTES WITH
  • 00:22:19.160 --> 00:22:23.150
  • YOU. I WONDER IF I COULD PUT 2 THINGS IN YOUR HANDS; 1 IN EACH
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:27.280
  • HAND THAT I BELIEVE JOHN, THE DISCIPLE, HAD THAT SET HIM UP
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:33.070
  • FOR FRESH REVELATION OF CHRIST. I'M NOT SUGGESTING YOU AND I ARE
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:42.110
  • GOING TO GET SOMETHING TO ADD TO THE SCRIPTURES. THE CANNON IS
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:46.070
  • COMPLETE, BUT CAN YOU AND I, ACCORDING TO EPHESIANS 1, HAVE
  • 00:22:46.080 --> 00:22:50.110
  • THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND OF REVELATION TO KNOW HIM BETTER?
  • 00:22:50.120 --> 00:22:54.230
  • CAN THE EYES OF OUR HEART BE ENLIGHTENED SO THAT WE MAY KNOW
  • 00:22:54.240 --> 00:22:57.270
  • THE HOPE TOW HICH WE'VE BEEN CALLED? COULD WE KNOW THE
  • 00:22:57.280 --> 00:23:01.220
  • IMMEASURABLE GREATNESS OF HIS POWER TOWARDS US, WHO BELIEVE?
  • 00:23:01.230 --> 00:23:06.200
  • OH, YES WE CAN. OH, YES WE CAN. OH, YES WE CAN. AND WHAT I WANT
  • 00:23:06.210 --> 00:23:11.030
  • TO TRY TO PRESENT TO YOU THIS AFTERNOON IS THAT NOTHING ON
  • 00:23:11.040 --> 00:23:15.170
  • THIS EARTH, NOTHING WILL IMPACT WHAT YOU'VE BEEN CALLED TO DO
  • 00:23:15.180 --> 00:23:19.260
  • AND THE PERSON YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED TO BE LIKE A FRESH
  • 00:23:19.270 --> 00:23:23.030
  • REVELATION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE. THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:29.180
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. TWO THINGS THAT I WANT YOU TO SEE, I WANT
  • 00:23:29.190 --> 00:23:33.280
  • YOU TO WRITE, IF YOU'RE TAKING NOTES, WRITE DOWN THESE 2 WORDS.
  • 00:23:33.290 --> 00:23:36.220
  • IN ONE HAND, COMPANY. IN THE OTHER HAND, SINGULARITY.
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:42.060
  • COMPANY. SINGULARITY. I BELIEVE THAT JOHN HAD A STRONG GRASP OF
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:51.100
  • COMPANY AND SINGULARITY THAT SET HIM UP TO BE USED BY GOD LONG
  • 00:23:51.110 --> 00:23:58.040
  • AFTER OTHERS HAD COME AND GONE; ALL THE WAY TO THE END OF HIS
  • 00:23:58.050 --> 00:24:02.140
  • LIFE WITH FRESH REVELATION. COMPANY AND SINGULARITY. WOULD
  • 00:24:02.150 --> 00:24:07.010
  • YOU TELL ME THOSE 2 WORDS PLEASE? WHAT'S THE FIRST ONE?
  • 00:24:07.020 --> 00:24:09.220
  • [COMPANY] WHAT'S THE OTHER ONE? [SINGULARITY] TELL ME THE 2
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:12.170
  • TOGETHER. [COMPANY & SINGULARITY] COMPANY &
  • 00:24:12.180 --> 00:24:15.210
  • SINGULARITY. I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT THE WORD WITH ME IN VERSE 9.
  • 00:24:15.220 --> 00:24:18.170
  • I, JOHN, YOUR BROTHER AND PARTNER IN T HE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:24:18.180 --> 00:24:23.030
  • PARTNER IN THE TRIBULATION. I LOVE THE WORD PARTNER BUT I LOVE
  • 00:24:23.040 --> 00:24:28.170
  • THE NIV TRANSLATION BEST OF ALL AND SOME OF YOU HAVE GOT IT
  • 00:24:28.180 --> 00:24:31.250
  • RIGHT NOW. THE NIV SAYS TO US, IT CALLS HIM COMPANION. YOUR
  • 00:24:31.260 --> 00:24:37.070
  • COMPANION IN THE TRIBULATION AND THE KINGDOM, AND THE PATIENT
  • 00:24:37.080 --> 00:24:42.000
  • ENDURANCE THAT ARE IN JESUS. COMPANION. COMPANION. I WANT YOU
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:47.000
  • TO THINK ABOUT THAT WORD BECAUSE I LOOKED IT UP. I LOVE TO SEE
  • 00:24:47.010 --> 00:24:49.270
  • ORIGINAL EXPLANATIONS FOR WHERE CERTAIN WORDS HAVE COME FROM. SO
  • 00:24:49.280 --> 00:24:57.010
  • I LOOKED UP THE ORIGIN OF THE WORD COMPANION TODAY AND DO YOU
  • 00:24:57.020 --> 00:25:01.160
  • KNOW WHAT I FOUND? THE COM MEANS TOGETHER. THAT PAN THAT IS IN
  • 00:25:01.170 --> 00:25:07.080
  • THE REST OF COMPANION, COM AND THEN PAN, THAT PAN MEANS BREAD.
  • 00:25:07.090 --> 00:25:14.160
  • BREAD. AND THAT WORD MEANS TO BREAK BREAD TOGETHER. THAT,
  • 00:25:14.170 --> 00:25:19.130
  • LITERALLY, OUR COMPANIONS ARE THOSE WITH WHOM WE BREAK BREAD
  • 00:25:19.140 --> 00:25:26.000
  • TOGETHER. DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU SAY WE'RE HAVING OVER COMPANY,
  • 00:25:26.010 --> 00:25:29.290
  • WHEN YOU USE THE WORD COMPANY, IT'S STILL THAT SAME COM, AND
  • 00:25:30.000 --> 00:25:34.230
  • THEN THAT PANY. PAN IS BREAD. SEE, WE WONDER IF WE'RE JUST
  • 00:25:34.240 --> 00:25:41.070
  • GLUTTONS THAT EVERY TIME WE GET TOGETHER WITH PEOPLE WE WANT TO
  • 00:25:41.080 --> 00:25:44.120
  • EAT? [LAUGHTER] BUT I WANT TO SUGGEST TO YOU, BIBLICALLY
  • 00:25:44.130 --> 00:25:50.180
  • SPEAKING, THAT THE WAY WE ARE FORMED THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:25:50.190 --> 00:25:53.250
  • US, THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT BEING CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF
  • 00:25:53.260 --> 00:25:58.230
  • GOD THAT WHEN WE COME TOGETHER WITH ONE ANOTHER, WE WANT TO EAT
  • 00:25:58.240 --> 00:26:02.180
  • SOMETHING. AND DO YOU KNOW WHY? WE WANT TO SHARE IT. WHAT IT IS
  • 00:26:02.190 --> 00:26:06.210
  • THAT MAKES BREAD DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING ELSE? LIKE, IT DOESN'T
  • 00:26:06.220 --> 00:26:10.060
  • REALLY TALK, THAT'S NOT INHERENT IN THE WORD, THAT WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:26:10.070 --> 00:26:13.150
  • SPLIT UP OUR GREEN BEANS. [LAUGHTER] IT'S NOT TALKING
  • 00:26:13.160 --> 00:26:18.280
  • ABOUT PIECES OF THE CHICKEN. IT'S SPECIFICALLY BREAD. BREAD.
  • 00:26:18.290 --> 00:26:24.110
  • AND THE WORD OF GOD TALKS ABOUT THE BREAD OF AFFLICTION. IT
  • 00:26:24.120 --> 00:26:27.170
  • TALKS ABOUT THE BREAD OF THE PRESENCE. SHARING THE BREAD
  • 00:26:27.180 --> 00:26:31.260
  • TOGETHER. SHARING THE BREAD TOGETHER. DO YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 00:26:31.270 --> 00:26:34.210
  • BECAUSE BREAD, WE PULL FROM THE VERY SAME LOAF. SEE, I HAND IT
  • 00:26:34.220 --> 00:26:38.210
  • OVER TO YOU AND YOU PULL IT. AND THEN YOU PULL IT. AND THEN YOU
  • 00:26:38.220 --> 00:26:41.170
  • PULL IT. AND THEN YOU PULL IT. BECAUSE WE'RE ALL EATING FROM
  • 00:26:41.180 --> 00:26:44.110
  • THE SAME ONE. BECAUSE THAT IS COMPANY. THAT IS COMPANIONSHIP.
  • 00:26:44.120 --> 00:26:49.150
  • AND HE HAD THAT SENSE EVEN IN HIS ALONENESS THAT HE WAS NOT
  • 00:26:49.160 --> 00:26:52.250
  • ALONE. I LOVE THE 5TH CHAPTER OF 1ST PETER THAT SAYS TO US THAT
  • 00:26:52.260 --> 00:26:57.090
  • WE ARE TO BE SOBER AND ALERT, KNOWING THAT OUR ENEMY, LIKE A
  • 00:26:57.100 --> 00:27:02.030
  • ROARING LION IS ON THE PROWL LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO DEVOUR.
  • 00:27:02.040 --> 00:27:07.160
  • BUT WE'RE TO STAND STRONG AGAINST HIM, FIRM IN OUR FAITH.
  • 00:27:07.170 --> 00:27:10.120
  • LISTEN TO THIS PART, KNOWING THAT OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS
  • 00:27:10.130 --> 00:27:13.130
  • THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ARE ENDURING THE SAME KINDS OF
  • 00:27:13.140 --> 00:27:15.220
  • SUFFERING. WHAT IF YOU ALWAYS KEPT IN MIND THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:27:15.230 --> 00:27:19.230
  • OTHER WOMEN JUST LIKE YOU TRYING TO DO THE SAME THING YOU'RE
  • 00:27:19.240 --> 00:27:23.060
  • TRYING TO DO TRYING TO FULFILL THEIR CALLING OUT THERE IN A
  • 00:27:23.070 --> 00:27:26.160
  • VERY HARSH AND HOSTILE WORLD? WHAT IF YOU REMEMBER THAT THEY
  • 00:27:26.170 --> 00:27:30.290
  • WERE OUT THERE? WHAT IF EVEN WHEN YOU FELT EXILED AND
  • 00:27:31.000 --> 00:27:33.170
  • ISOLATED AND ALL ALONE, YOU KNEW YOU HAD COMPANIONS? PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:27:33.180 --> 00:27:39.260
  • EAT OF THE SAME BREAD? WHEN JESUS SAID I AM THE BREAD OF
  • 00:27:39.270 --> 00:27:44.210
  • LIFE. PEOPLE THAT BREAK THE BREAD TOGETHER? I CAN REMEMBER
  • 00:27:44.220 --> 00:27:49.030
  • THE VERY FIRST TIME THAT I THINK THAT CHRIS AND I WENT ON A TRIP
  • 00:27:49.040 --> 00:27:57.030
  • TOGETHER TO MINISTER. AND IT WAS IN THESSALONIKI, THE VERY FIRST
  • 00:27:57.040 --> 00:28:00.270
  • TIME, AND WE HAD BEEN MINISTERING THAT NIGHT AND HAD
  • 00:28:00.280 --> 00:28:04.020
  • COME IN AFTER THE EVENING SERVICE. AND WE WENT INTO THE
  • 00:28:04.030 --> 00:28:09.000
  • RESTROOM, NOT THE RESTROOM, BUT THE RESTAURANT AT OUR HOTEL.
  • 00:28:09.010 --> 00:28:14.170
  • VERY, VERY LATE MEAL, AND WE HAD ORDERED AND CHRIS HAD GOTTEN A
  • 00:28:14.180 --> 00:28:21.090
  • BOWL OF SOUP. AND WHEN THE WAITER WENT TO SET DOWN HER
  • 00:28:21.100 --> 00:28:25.280
  • SOUP, HE SOMEHOW TURNED THE BOWL JUST SO THAT THE SOUP SPLASHED
  • 00:28:25.290 --> 00:28:33.130
  • UP ON HIS THUMB AND THEN HE WENT AHEAD AND SET IT DOWN IN FRONT
  • 00:28:33.140 --> 00:28:39.150
  • OF HER. AND THEN HE PUT DOWN MY SOUP IN FRONT OF ME. WELL, I
  • 00:28:39.160 --> 00:28:42.020
  • LOOKED OVER AT HER AND SHE LOOKED OVER AT ME, BECAUSE IT
  • 00:28:42.030 --> 00:28:44.220
  • DOESN'T TAKE YOU LONG TO KNOW THAT CHRIS IS A GERMPHOB! AND SO
  • 00:28:44.230 --> 00:28:49.140
  • I'M ALREADY KNOWING HE HAS RUINED HER SOUP. HE'S RUINED IT.
  • 00:28:49.150 --> 00:28:53.140
  • SHE CANNOT EAT IT LIKE THAT. I ALREADY KNEW IT. AND I DIDN'T
  • 00:28:53.150 --> 00:28:56.170
  • SAY A WORD, I JUST SIMPLY GOT HER BOWL AND PUT IT OVER HERE
  • 00:28:56.180 --> 00:29:00.130
  • AND GOT MY BOWL AND PUT IT OVER THERE. AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:29:00.140 --> 00:29:03.130
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE KNOW THAT IT WAS ALL THEY CAN DO. I MEAN, SHE
  • 00:29:03.140 --> 00:29:08.010
  • JUST NODDED AT ME. SHE DIDN'T SAY, NO, PLEASE DON'T. IT WAS
  • 00:29:08.020 --> 00:29:10.130
  • LIKE, GIVE ME YOUR SOUP. THERE'S NO WAY I CAN EAT IT. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:29:10.140 --> 00:29:14.080
  • THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO WAY I CAN EAT IT. AND SOMETIMES YOU JUST
  • 00:29:14.090 --> 00:29:16.230
  • HAVE TO TAKE THE THUMB FOR YOUR FRIEND. YOU JUST HAVE TO TAKE
  • 00:29:16.240 --> 00:29:21.050
  • THE THUMB. YOU JUST HAVE TO GET SOME HAIR ON YOUR CHEST AND YOU
  • 00:29:21.060 --> 00:29:26.030
  • JUST HAVE TO TAKE THE THUMB FOR YOUR FRIEND BECAUSE THAT'S
  • 00:29:26.040 --> 00:29:29.200
  • COMPANIONSHIP. IT'S SHARING THE BREAD. IT'S PART OF BEING
  • 00:29:29.210 --> 00:29:34.250
  • TOGETHER. THE BEAUTY OF IT. THE BEAUTY OF IT. THE BEAUTY OF IT.
  • 00:29:34.260 --> 00:29:46.190
  • THE BEAUTY OF KNOWING WE'RE IN IT TOGETHER; THAT WE HAVE THE
  • 00:29:46.200 --> 00:29:51.220
  • MEAT OF GOD'S WORD AND WE'VE GOT THE PURE CARBS OF GOOD COMPANY.
  • 00:29:51.230 --> 00:29:56.240
  • DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE IN GOOD COMPANY? THAT'S CARBS TO YOU.
  • 00:29:56.250 --> 00:30:02.090
  • THAT'S GOING TO BE SOME ENERGY TO YOU. THAT'S KNOWING SOMEBODY
  • 00:30:02.100 --> 00:30:05.090
  • ELSE IS OUT THERE FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT. AND YOU DON'T EVEN
  • 00:30:05.100 --> 00:30:07.290
  • HAVE TO BE STANDING NEXT TO THEM FOR THAT TO BUILD YOU UP IN YOUR
  • 00:30:08.000 --> 00:30:10.190
  • SPIRIT BECAUSE YOU KNOW IF THEY CAN DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT. YOU
  • 00:30:10.200 --> 00:30:13.270
  • KNOW THAT SOMEHOW IF THEY CAN DEAL WITH TRYING TO BE FAITHFUL
  • 00:30:13.280 --> 00:30:24.180
  • IN A CULTURE RAPIDLY GOING SO ANTI-CHRISTIAN, THAT IT IS
  • 00:30:24.190 --> 00:30:34.120
  • INCOMPREHENSIBLE. AND YET I'M GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT YOU
  • 00:30:34.130 --> 00:30:38.040
  • ALREADY KNOW, THIS IS THE GENERATION YOU WERE PLANTED IN
  • 00:30:38.050 --> 00:30:44.270
  • AND I WAS PLANED IN BY GOD. YOU, WITH YOUR BACKGROUND, YOUR DNA;
  • 00:30:44.280 --> 00:30:50.150
  • EVERY PART OF THE ENVIRONMENT THAT YOU'VE COME FROM, EVERY
  • 00:30:50.160 --> 00:30:53.060
  • PART OF YOUR TALENT AND SKILL, ALL OF YOUR EDUCATION, ANY LACK
  • 00:30:53.070 --> 00:30:57.070
  • OF EDUCATION, ALL OF YOUR EXPERIENCED, ANY LACK OF
  • 00:30:57.080 --> 00:31:01.030
  • EXPERIENCE, ALL OF THAT GOES TOGETHER INTO THIS ONE PERSON
  • 00:31:01.040 --> 00:31:04.220
  • THAT IS YOU, FILLED AND INFILTRATED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:31:04.230 --> 00:31:12.170
  • ORDAINED FOR THE EXACT HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT YOU ARE IN. AND
  • 00:31:12.180 --> 00:31:20.020
  • YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW THERE ARE WOMEN JUST LIKE YOU TRYING TO DO
  • 00:31:20.030 --> 00:31:26.170
  • THE VERY SAME THING: GOOD COMPANY. YESTERDAY I HAD TO GO
  • 00:31:26.180 --> 00:31:32.290
  • DOWNTOWN IN HOUSTON, IT MAY HAVE BEEN THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY,
  • 00:31:33.000 --> 00:31:39.250
  • THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY TO THE COURT HOUSE TO MEET WITH THE
  • 00:31:39.260 --> 00:31:43.080
  • D.A. OVER SOME INFORMATION THAT I WAS GIVING TO HER ABOUT A CASE
  • 00:31:43.090 --> 00:31:47.120
  • SHE WAS ON. AND SO I TOOK ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS WITH ME AND WE HAD
  • 00:31:47.130 --> 00:31:53.110
  • TO GOT HROUGH SECURITY. I DON'T KNOW THE LAST TIME YOU WERE IN
  • 00:31:53.120 --> 00:31:55.250
  • THE COURTHOUSE, BUT IF YOU'RE IN A CITY LIKE HOUSTON, YOU'RE
  • 00:31:55.260 --> 00:31:58.190
  • GOING TO GO THROUGH A METAL DETECTOR AND EVERYTHING JUST
  • 00:31:58.200 --> 00:32:01.030
  • LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO THE AIRPORT TO GET THROUGH. AND THERE WERE 4
  • 00:32:01.040 --> 00:32:03.270
  • WOMEN OF COLOR THAT WERE WORKING AT THAT SECURITY STATION,
  • 00:32:03.280 --> 00:32:09.250
  • GETTING US THROUGH. AND THEY WERE SO FUN AND THEY WERE SO
  • 00:32:09.260 --> 00:32:13.230
  • CUTE AND ONE OF THEM SAID TO ME, WAIT A SECOND, WAIT A SECOND,
  • 00:32:13.240 --> 00:32:16.250
  • WAIT A SECOND, YOU LOOK LIKE, YOU LOOK LIKE, YOU LOOK JUST
  • 00:32:16.260 --> 00:32:22.250
  • LIKE, AND THE OTHER ONE SAID, PAULA WHITE. SHE SAID, NO, NO,
  • 00:32:22.260 --> 00:32:25.250
  • [LAUGHTER] NO, IT'S NOT PAULA. AND SHE GOES, BUT SHE'S GOT
  • 00:32:25.260 --> 00:32:30.240
  • THAT. SHE GOES, NO, IT'S NOT HER. IT'S NOT HER. SO I JUST
  • 00:32:30.250 --> 00:32:33.050
  • STOOD THERE IN THAT MOMENT OF AWKWARDNESS, CAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:32:33.060 --> 00:32:35.100
  • THINKING, YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW WHETHER TO SAY ANYTHING OR NOT,
  • 00:32:35.110 --> 00:32:37.130
  • AND SHE FINALLY BLURTS IT OUT, AND SO I'M ABLE TO JUST GO, YOU
  • 00:32:37.140 --> 00:32:40.040
  • KNOW WHAT, YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT IS ME. AND I CANNOT TELL YOU
  • 00:32:40.050 --> 00:32:45.280
  • WHAT A DELIGHT IT IS TO SEE YOU TODAY. PEOPLE STOOD BACK AND
  • 00:32:45.290 --> 00:32:50.070
  • WATCHED WHILE WE ALL JUST HUGGED AND HUGGED. AND SO WHEN I LEANED
  • 00:32:50.080 --> 00:32:53.250
  • BACK FROM THEM, I LOOKED AT THEM AND I SAID, I JUST NEED TO ASK
  • 00:32:53.260 --> 00:32:56.130
  • YOU SOMETHING, IN LIGHT OF SO MANY THINGS, I NEED TO JUST ASK
  • 00:32:56.140 --> 00:33:00.210
  • YOU SOMETHING, ARE WE GOING TO BE ALRIGHT? ARE WE WOMEN, ARE WE
  • 00:33:00.220 --> 00:33:04.280
  • WOMEN, ARE WE GOING TO BE ALRIGHT? DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT
  • 00:33:04.290 --> 00:33:07.270
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT? I'M JUST WONDERING TODAY, ARE WE WOMEN,
  • 00:33:07.280 --> 00:33:11.020
  • WILL WE BE ALRIGHT? BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, MAYBE A SISTER DOESN'T
  • 00:33:11.030 --> 00:33:16.060
  • HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER SISTER DOING ALRIGHT, BUT WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:33:16.070 --> 00:33:19.130
  • TO MOTHERS OVER GENERATIONS OF PEOPLE, WHEN YOU'RE VERY
  • 00:33:19.140 --> 00:33:23.010
  • MATERNAL, LISTEN, A MAMA CAN'T BE ALRIGHT IF HER DAUGHTERS ARE
  • 00:33:23.020 --> 00:33:26.010
  • NOT ALRIGHT. AND I NEED TO KNOW TODAY, ARE WE GIRLS GOING TO BE
  • 00:33:26.020 --> 00:33:29.060
  • ALRIGHT? BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN ENTRUSTED INTO THIS GENERATION,
  • 00:33:29.070 --> 00:33:32.270
  • AND WE'VE GOT TO BE ALRIGHT. AND THIS WOMAN LOOKED AT ME, THIS
  • 00:33:32.280 --> 00:33:35.260
  • BEAUTIFUL WOMAN OF COLOR, SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:33:35.270 --> 00:33:38.150
  • ABSOLUTELY! [LAUGHTER] WE'RE GONNA BE ALRIGHT! [APPLAUSE] I
  • 00:33:38.160 --> 00:33:44.270
  • SAID, ALRIGHT THEN! BECAUSE IF YOU'RE GONNA BE ALRIGHT, I'M
  • 00:33:44.280 --> 00:33:48.050
  • GONNA BE ALRIGHT. CAUSE I TAKE YOU PERSONALLY, AND YOU TAKE ME
  • 00:33:48.060 --> 00:33:51.220
  • PERSONALLY, BECAUSE WE ARE SISTERS, BECAUSE WE ARE SISTERS,
  • 00:33:51.230 --> 00:33:55.070
  • BECAUSE WE ARE SISTERS, AND BECAUSE WE SISTERS HAVE ONE
  • 00:33:55.080 --> 00:33:58.120
  • ANOTHER'S BACK. I WAS STUDYING THE WOMAN WITH THE DISABILITY.
  • 00:33:58.130 --> 00:34:01.280
  • HAVE YOU STUDIED HER BEFORE? WHERE SHE'S THE ONE THAT'S GOT
  • 00:34:01.290 --> 00:34:04.140
  • THE BACK THAT'S ALL BENT OVER AND SHE CAN'T STAND UP STRAIGHT?
  • 00:34:04.150 --> 00:34:07.040
  • AND SO JESUS CALLS HER FORTH AND HE STRAIGHTENS UP HER BACK. AND
  • 00:34:07.050 --> 00:34:11.010
  • HER SHOULDERS ARE UP AND HER SPINE IS JUST LIKE IT'S SUPPOSED
  • 00:34:11.020 --> 00:34:15.220
  • TO BE. AND I STARTED THINKING TO MYSELF, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SCENE
  • 00:34:15.230 --> 00:34:18.070
  • THAT IS. AND I STARTED THINKING TO MYSELF, WHEN 2 WOMEN DECIDE
  • 00:34:18.080 --> 00:34:22.100
  • TO HAVE ONE ANOTHER'S BACKS INSTEAD OF COMPETING WITH ONE
  • 00:34:22.110 --> 00:34:25.190
  • ANOTHER, LISA, IF YOU'RE STANDING BACK TO BACK WITH
  • 00:34:25.200 --> 00:34:28.180
  • SOMEBODY, YOU'VE GOT TO STAND UP STRAIGHT. SEE, THE BEAUTY OF
  • 00:34:28.190 --> 00:34:31.290
  • STANDING BACK TO BACK WITH YOUR SISTER, IS YOU CAN'T STAND BACK
  • 00:34:32.000 --> 00:34:35.260
  • TO BACK WITH HER AND YOU BE ALL BENT OVER. SEE, WHEN YOUR SISTER
  • 00:34:35.270 --> 00:34:39.200
  • IS STANDING UP STRAIGHT AND WHEN YOU'VE GOT HER BACK, YOU'RE
  • 00:34:39.210 --> 00:34:42.170
  • HAVING TO STAND UP STRAIGHT TOO. AND THE 2 OF YOU, THOSE BACKS
  • 00:34:42.180 --> 00:34:45.200
  • ARE JUST AS STRAIGHT AS THEY CAN BE, BECAUSE WE LOOK OUT FOR ONE
  • 00:34:45.210 --> 00:34:47.280
  • ANOTHER, BECAUSE WE ARE COMPANIONS IN THE TRIBULATION OF
  • 00:34:47.290 --> 00:34:57.260
  • THE INBREAKING OF THE KINGDOM OF KING JESUS IN OUR GENERATION.
  • 00:34:57.270 --> 00:35:05.030
  • WE'VE GOT COMPANY, AND THEN WE'VE ALSO GOT, CAN SOMEBODY
  • 00:35:05.040 --> 00:35:07.210
  • TELL ME WHAT IT IS? [SINGULARITY] WE'VE GOT
  • 00:35:07.220 --> 00:35:11.200
  • SINGULARITY; OUR COMPANY AND OUR SINGULARITY. YOU KNOW THE
  • 00:35:11.210 --> 00:35:14.280
  • DEFINITION TO SINGULARITY WOULDN'T BE HARD TO FIGURE OUT.
  • 00:35:14.290 --> 00:35:18.130
  • IN MERRIAM WEBSTER'S IT'S VERY, VERY SIMPLE AND I'M QUOTING, OF
  • 00:35:18.140 --> 00:35:21.020
  • RELATING TO A SEPARATE PERSON OR THING. DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY,
  • 00:35:21.030 --> 00:35:26.100
  • AT ALL TIMES, TO KNOW YOU ARE IN GOOD COMPANY? THERE IS A WHOLE
  • 00:35:26.110 --> 00:35:31.030
  • ARMY OF PEOPLE OUT THERE IN THE FAITH, BROTHERS AND SISTERS
  • 00:35:31.040 --> 00:35:34.220
  • BOTH, WE BREAK THE BREAD OF LIFE TOGETHER. THIS IS OUR CALLING.
  • 00:35:34.230 --> 00:35:39.100
  • WE HAVE COMPANIONS ALL OVER THE EARTH. WE HAVE COMPANIONS IN 3RD
  • 00:35:39.110 --> 00:35:43.070
  • WORLD COUNTRIES AND IN CLOSED COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE GLOBE
  • 00:35:43.080 --> 00:35:49.210
  • DOING THE THING AND DOING IT WITH COURAGE AND MIGHT. AND WE
  • 00:35:49.220 --> 00:35:56.140
  • CAN DO IT, BUT IN ORDER TO DO IT WE HAVE GOT TO DEFINE WHAT A
  • 00:35:56.150 --> 00:36:01.250
  • TRIBULATION IS AND QUIT DEFINING A TRIBULATION IS IRRITATION.
  • 00:36:01.260 --> 00:36:06.280
  • LISTEN, IF WE'RE GOING TO GET ALL UNDONE BECAUSE OUR DECORATER
  • 00:36:06.290 --> 00:36:13.040
  • DIDN'T MAKE IT OVER TO THE HOUSE ON TIME, WE'VE GOT NOTHING WHEN
  • 00:36:13.050 --> 00:36:18.140
  • REAL TRIBULATION HITS US. I WANT TO JUST SUGGEST TO YOU WE'RE
  • 00:36:18.150 --> 00:36:23.050
  • USING ALL OUR TRIBULATION ENERGY ON NOTHING BUT IRRITATIONS.
  • 00:36:23.060 --> 00:36:29.150
  • LET'S NOT CALL IT SUFFERING UNTIL IT IS! LET'S NOT CALL
  • 00:36:29.160 --> 00:36:34.260
  • JETLAG SUFFERING. IT'S NOT. IT'S ANNOYING, BUT IT'S NOT
  • 00:36:34.270 --> 00:36:41.110
  • SUFFERING. BUT WHEN THE REAL THING COMES, NOW WE'RE TALKING.
  • 00:36:41.120 --> 00:36:48.040
  • AND NOW WE'RE ONE OF MANY AND WE'RE ALSO ONE BEFORE JESUS.
  • 00:36:48.050 --> 00:36:57.060
  • YOU. I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT COMPANY AND SINGULARITY; KNOWING
  • 00:36:57.070 --> 00:37:02.040
  • YOU'VE ALWAYS GOT COMPANIONS IN THE FAITH BUT ALSO KNOWING THAT
  • 00:37:02.050 --> 00:37:07.190
  • JESUS RELATES TO YOU IN SINGULARITY AS A SEPARATE PERSON
  • 00:37:07.200 --> 00:37:13.220
  • ALTOGETHER. CAN'T YOU JUST SEE JESUS COMING IN SUCH A
  • 00:37:13.230 --> 00:37:18.110
  • REVELATION OF HIS GLORIOUS PRESENCE AND JOHN TURNING AROUND
  • 00:37:18.120 --> 00:37:22.230
  • AND GOING JUST A SECOND, I'M GOING TO PERISCOPE THIS.
  • 00:37:22.240 --> 00:37:25.170
  • [LAUGHTER] THIS IS PERFECT. ONE NIGHT, I HAVE NEVER TOLD THIS
  • 00:37:25.180 --> 00:37:33.250
  • AND I DON'T KNOW, I'VE NOT PRACTICED HOW I WOULD WANT TO
  • 00:37:33.260 --> 00:37:36.210
  • TELL IT BECAUSE IT'S REALLY A STUPID STORY, BUT I'VE THOUGHT
  • 00:37:36.220 --> 00:37:39.150
  • ABOUT IT A WHOLE LOT OF TIMES. ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO I
  • 00:37:39.160 --> 00:37:43.110
  • WAS IN A FRIEND'S LITTLE RIVER HOUSE TO DO SOME WRITING AND I'D
  • 00:37:43.120 --> 00:37:49.100
  • BEEN THERE FOR LIKE 4-5 DAYS AT THIS POINT ALL BY MYSELF. I JUST
  • 00:37:49.110 --> 00:37:54.080
  • TOOK MY BORDER COLLIE, QUEEN ESTHER, WITH ME SO I WOULDN'T BE
  • 00:37:54.090 --> 00:37:57.170
  • COMPLETELY ALONE. AND SO I HAD HER AND I'D BEEN JUST WORKING
  • 00:37:57.180 --> 00:38:01.140
  • AWAY AND WORKING AWAY AND WORKING AWAY. AND SO THAT NIGHT
  • 00:38:01.150 --> 00:38:04.120
  • WHEN IT GOT DARK I JUST WENT OUT ON THE PORCH TO KIND OF STRETCH
  • 00:38:04.130 --> 00:38:07.180
  • MY BACK BECAUSE I WAS WORKING FROM EARLY IN THE MORNING TO
  • 00:38:07.190 --> 00:38:10.080
  • LATE, LATE AT NIGHT, GETTING ABOUT 5 ½ HOURS OF SLEEP; BACK
  • 00:38:10.090 --> 00:38:13.040
  • UP AND AT IT AGAIN. SO I JUST WENT OUT ON THE PORCH AND IT WAS
  • 00:38:13.050 --> 00:38:18.000
  • JUST TOTALLY A BLACK, BLACK NIGHT. AND THERE WAS ALMOST A
  • 00:38:18.010 --> 00:38:22.270
  • DRY RIVERBED, A LITTLE BIT OF WATER IN IT DOWN BELOW. AND
  • 00:38:22.280 --> 00:38:25.280
  • THERE WERE SOME SHRUBS BETWEEN ME AND THAT LITTLE RIVERBED AND
  • 00:38:25.290 --> 00:38:30.130
  • ALL THE SUDDEN THERE WERE HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF
  • 00:38:30.140 --> 00:38:36.160
  • FIREFLIES. HUNDREDS. IT WAS BLACK. NO LIGHTS EXCEPT FOR
  • 00:38:36.170 --> 00:38:47.170
  • FIREFLIES. I WENT AND GOT MY PHONE BECAUSE THIS IS TOO GOOD
  • 00:38:47.180 --> 00:38:54.250
  • NOT TO TWEET. AND WHAT I'M GOING TO DO, I'M GOING TO TAPE THIS
  • 00:38:54.260 --> 00:38:59.280
  • BECAUSE I'M GOING TO TWEE THIS BECAUSE THIS IS FANTASTIC. ONLY
  • 00:38:59.290 --> 00:39:05.280
  • THE MORE I TOOK PICTURES AND THE MORE I TRIED TO RECORD IT, I
  • 00:39:05.290 --> 00:39:09.150
  • WOULD LOOK BACK AT THE RECORDING AND YOU COULD NOT SEE A SINGLE
  • 00:39:09.160 --> 00:39:11.150
  • FIREFLY; BACK AT EVERY PICTURE, NOT A SINGLE ONE. AND THEY HAD
  • 00:39:11.160 --> 00:39:16.260
  • BEEN LIKE STARS IN THE NIGHT, JUST FLASHING, FLASHING,
  • 00:39:16.270 --> 00:39:19.220
  • FLASHING. NOT ONE SHOWED UP. AND I FELT LIKE WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:39:19.230 --> 00:39:23.010
  • WANTED TO SAY TO ME WAS THIS, YOU KNOW WHAT, ACTUALLY THAT WAS
  • 00:39:23.020 --> 00:39:25.110
  • FOR YOU. ACTUALLY FOR YOU. BUT YOU WOULDN'T HAVE DONE ALL THOSE
  • 00:39:25.120 --> 00:39:33.060
  • FIREFLIES JUST FOR? NO, ACTUALLY THAT WAS JUST FOR YOU! BUT ARE
  • 00:39:33.070 --> 00:39:38.070
  • WE SO QUICK TO SHARE WHEN IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SINGULARITY, WE
  • 00:39:38.080 --> 00:39:42.020
  • GO FOR THE COMPANY? WHEN IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE COMPANY, WE GO
  • 00:39:42.030 --> 00:39:44.140
  • FOR THE SINGULARITY? WHAT IF WE HAD A GOOD SENSE OF BOTH AND WE
  • 00:39:44.150 --> 00:39:48.240
  • KNEW WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR SINGULARITY? WHAT IF IT'S JUST
  • 00:39:48.250 --> 00:39:51.280
  • YOU AND JESUS? WHAT IF HE'S JUST TRYING TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU,
  • 00:39:51.290 --> 00:39:55.200
  • ALL BY YOURSELF, JUST YOU! JUST YOU! BECAUSE HERE'S WHAT I WANT
  • 00:39:55.210 --> 00:40:00.010
  • TO SAY TO YOU, I THINK WE ARE LOSING THE ABILITY TO BE ALONE.
  • 00:40:00.020 --> 00:40:05.160
  • I THINK WE HAVE COME INTO A TIME IN OUR CULTURE WHERE WE HAVE ARE
  • 00:40:05.170 --> 00:40:10.280
  • SOMEHOW DEVELOPING A SEVERE ALLERGY TO ALONENESS. AND IN
  • 00:40:10.290 --> 00:40:16.240
  • DOING SO, WE AVOID THAT WHICH WOULD MOMENTARILY HAVE EXCILED
  • 00:40:16.250 --> 00:40:22.090
  • US JUST ENOUGH TO BE IN THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR JESUS TO
  • 00:40:22.100 --> 00:40:28.090
  • SHOW UP. PERFECT ENVIRONMENT. BUT WHAT WE DO, WE GO FOR CHEAP
  • 00:40:28.100 --> 00:40:33.140
  • COMPANY. I LOVE SOCIAL MEDIA. I AM A SOCIAL PERSON IF YOU WILL
  • 00:40:33.150 --> 00:40:37.210
  • EVER MEET ONE. I AM SANGUINE TO THE MARROW OF MY BONES. I LOVE
  • 00:40:37.220 --> 00:40:43.200
  • PEOPLE! BUT WHAT WE'RE DOING IS, EVERY WAKING MOMENT, WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:40:43.210 --> 00:40:49.270
  • ALONE, TO US ALONE IS ON THE PHONE. ALONE IS ON THE PHONE.
  • 00:40:49.280 --> 00:40:57.290
  • ALONE IS ON THE PHONE. AND I'M NOT SAYING IT'S NOT FUN. IT IS
  • 00:40:58.000 --> 00:41:03.110
  • FUN. BUT I AM SAYING IT'S CHEAP COMPANY BECAUSE IT COSTS US
  • 00:41:03.120 --> 00:41:09.010
  • ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. WE DON'T HAVE TO DO ANY CHANGING. SEE,
  • 00:41:09.020 --> 00:41:15.170
  • WHEN YOU MAKE REAL-LIFE INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS, YOU'RE DOING ALL
  • 00:41:15.180 --> 00:41:18.150
  • MANNER OF CHANGING, BECAUSE YOU'RE BRUSHING UP AGAINST ONE
  • 00:41:18.160 --> 00:41:21.170
  • ANOTHER AND KNOCKING EACH OTHER'S ROUGH EDGES OFF. IT'S
  • 00:41:21.180 --> 00:41:26.130
  • LIKE SANDPAPER; IRON SHARPENING IRON. IT'S HARD. WHY GO FOR HARD
  • 00:41:26.140 --> 00:41:31.290
  • WHEN WE COULD JUST GO FOR CHEAP COMPANY? BUT WHAT WE'RE DOING IS
  • 00:41:32.000 --> 00:41:36.140
  • WE HAVE JUST CHEATED OURSELVES OUT OF A TIME WHEN GOD MIGHT
  • 00:41:36.150 --> 00:41:40.090
  • HAVE REVEALED HIMSELF TO US IN A WAY WE COULDN'T EVEN TELL
  • 00:41:40.100 --> 00:41:42.120
  • ANYBODY. I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING. I WANT YOU TO LISTEN
  • 00:41:42.130 --> 00:41:44.150
  • CAREFULLY. AND I'VE NEVER LEVITATED OFF A CHAIR, JESUS HAS
  • 00:41:44.160 --> 00:41:49.010
  • NEVER APPEARED TO ME, I MEAN, LIKE I SAW HIM WITH MY EYES.
  • 00:41:49.020 --> 00:41:53.250
  • I'VE NEVER HEARD HIS VOICE WITH MY EARS BUT I'M GOING TO TELL
  • 00:41:53.260 --> 00:41:56.230
  • YOU WITHOUT A DOUBT, WITHOUT A DOUBT, I HAVE HAD SOME PROFOUND,
  • 00:41:56.240 --> 00:42:02.020
  • PROFOUND SENSES OF GOD'S PRESENCE IN CORPORATE GATHERINGS
  • 00:42:02.030 --> 00:42:07.190
  • BUT NOTHING, NOTHING LIKE I HAVE ALL BY MYSELF. NOTHING. WHEN
  • 00:42:07.200 --> 00:42:13.110
  • NOBODY'S UP BUT ME. WHEN IT IS STILL DARK OUTSIDE AND THE ONLY
  • 00:42:13.120 --> 00:42:16.250
  • LIGHT I'VE GOT IS THE LIGHT OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST SHINING ON
  • 00:42:16.260 --> 00:42:21.040
  • THE WORD OF GOD. WHEN THAT IS IT, WHEN THAT IS IT, WHEN THAT
  • 00:42:21.050 --> 00:42:24.110
  • IS IT, WHEN THAT IS IT, SOMEHOW SOMETHING HAPPENS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:42:24.120 --> 00:42:32.160
  • HERE'S WHAT JUST KILLS ME, IT SAYS IN VERSE 10, I WAS IN THE
  • 00:42:32.170 --> 00:42:39.070
  • SPIRIT ON THE LORD'S DAY. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN SUNDAY. IT WAS
  • 00:42:39.080 --> 00:42:45.080
  • EVEN BY THE 20TH CHAPTER OF THE BOOK OF ACTS WE ALREADY SEE THAT
  • 00:42:45.090 --> 00:42:51.220
  • THERE IS THE BEGINNING OF THEM MEETING TOGETHER AS THE CHURCH
  • 00:42:51.230 --> 00:42:58.120
  • ON A SUNDAY, THAT WAS THE DAY OF RESURRECTION, THE SABBATH WOULD
  • 00:42:58.130 --> 00:43:03.280
  • HAVE BEEN, OF COURSE, THE FRIDAY EVENING ALL THE WAY TO THE
  • 00:43:03.290 --> 00:43:08.100
  • SETTING OF THE SUN ON SATURDAY, BUT THE LORD'S DAY WAS SUNDAY
  • 00:43:08.110 --> 00:43:12.160
  • AND IT WAS CHOSEN THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK BECAUSE JESUS CAME
  • 00:43:12.170 --> 00:43:14.260
  • BACK FROM THE DEAD ON THE 1ST DAY OF THE WEEK. THAT BECAME THE
  • 00:43:14.270 --> 00:43:18.230
  • DAY, WHAT YOU'D FIND IF YOU WANT TO LOOK IT UP, ACTS 20:7, THEY
  • 00:43:18.240 --> 00:43:22.270
  • WERE BREAKING BREAD TOGETHER ON THE LORD'S DAY. BUT THERE,
  • 00:43:22.280 --> 00:43:27.020
  • EXILED ON THE ISLAND OF PATMOS, WHO WAS GOING TO KNOW? WHO WAS
  • 00:43:27.030 --> 00:43:36.240
  • GOING TO KNOW, FIRST OF ALL, WHO HAD TO EVEN CARE THAT IT WAS THE
  • 00:43:36.250 --> 00:43:40.190
  • LORD'S DAY? I MEAN, WATCH HGTV, WHO CARES? BUT THIS IS THE PART
  • 00:43:40.200 --> 00:43:48.000
  • THAT KILLS ME, HE WAS IN THE SPIRIT. WAIT A SECOND, WAIT, HE
  • 00:43:48.010 --> 00:43:57.190
  • WAS IN THE SPIRIT. WHO ARE WE WHEN NOBODY IS LOOKING? WHEN NO
  • 00:43:57.200 --> 00:44:06.220
  • ONE IS NEAR US? WHEN NO ONE IS THERE TO MEASURE US AS LEADERS
  • 00:44:06.230 --> 00:44:12.290
  • OF THE FAITH? LEADERS IN OUR WORKPLACE? WHO'S, WHO'S GOING TO
  • 00:44:13.000 --> 00:44:24.050
  • BE IN THE SPIRIT WHEN NOBODY IS LOOKING? WHO WOULD BOTHER? JOHN
  • 00:44:24.060 --> 00:44:34.230
  • BOTHERED. JOHN BOTHERED. I'M GOING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING, YOU
  • 00:44:34.240 --> 00:44:41.280
  • ARE CALLED TO DO WHAT YOU CAN'T. YOU ARE CALLED TO BE WHO YOU ARE
  • 00:44:41.290 --> 00:44:49.040
  • NOT. YOU ARE CALLED TO KNOW WHAT YOU DON'T. OUR CALLINGS ARE
  • 00:44:49.050 --> 00:44:55.160
  • BEYOND US BECAUSE THEY CAN ONLY BE FILLED IN THE SPIRIT. IT IS
  • 00:44:55.170 --> 00:45:00.200
  • ONLY THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST LIVING THROUGH YOU THAT
  • 00:45:00.210 --> 00:45:04.080
  • YOU CAN KNOW, EVEN IN YOUR WORKPLACE, DISCERN THINGS THAT
  • 00:45:04.090 --> 00:45:08.040
  • NOBODY ELSE CAN GET, BECAUSE YOU'RE GETTING THEM FROM GOD IN
  • 00:45:08.050 --> 00:45:11.080
  • YOUR SPIRIT. AND YOU CAN HAVE A WISDOM THAT COMES FROM ABOVE AND
  • 00:45:11.090 --> 00:45:14.200
  • NOT FROM THE BEST OF HUMAN PHILOSOPHY. LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:45:14.210 --> 00:45:18.070
  • SOMETHING, WHAT WE'VE BEEN CALLED TO, WE CAN NOT DO EXCEPT
  • 00:45:18.080 --> 00:45:21.140
  • IN THE SPIRIT. BUT LISTEN, IT'S NO TIME TO GET IN THE SPIRIT
  • 00:45:21.150 --> 00:45:26.130
  • WHEN WE'RE JUST ABOUT TO DO IT. IS IT OUR PRACTICE? IS IT OUR
  • 00:45:26.140 --> 00:45:33.240
  • PRACTICE? IS IT OUR PRACTICE? SINGULARITY. SINGULARITY. WE
  • 00:45:33.250 --> 00:45:41.240
  • MUST GET OVER OUR TERROR OF BEING ALONE AND UNOCCUPIED. I'VE
  • 00:45:41.250 --> 00:45:52.290
  • ALWAYS DEALT WITH A LOT OF FEAR, ALWAYS. NOT VERY LONG AGO I HAD
  • 00:45:53.000 --> 00:45:59.120
  • THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME TO SPEAK AT A JOYCE
  • 00:45:59.130 --> 00:46:02.010
  • MEYER CONFERENCE. CHRIS WAS THERE. WE WERE DOING Q & A. WE
  • 00:46:02.020 --> 00:46:04.270
  • WERE ALL 3 SITTING UP AT THE FRONT ON LITTLE CHAIRS. AND THE
  • 00:46:04.280 --> 00:46:08.260
  • WOMEN WERE ASKING QUESTIONS, AND ONE OF THEM SAID HOW DO YOU 3
  • 00:46:08.270 --> 00:46:13.170
  • DEAL WITH FEAR? WELL, I JUST HELD UP MY HAND CAUSE I ALREAY
  • 00:46:13.180 --> 00:46:17.140
  • KNEW, IMMEDIATELY JOYCE SAID I NEVER DO HAVE ANY. I MEAN, CHRIS
  • 00:46:17.150 --> 00:46:23.260
  • HAS SOME ON OCCASION. I'M THE ONE. I MEAN, I'M THE ONE. I HAVE
  • 00:46:23.270 --> 00:46:28.210
  • TO PRESS PAST ANXIETY. I WAS PRAYING OVER THERE BEFORE I CAME
  • 00:46:28.220 --> 00:46:33.240
  • HERE, LORD, BIND MY ANXIETY, BIND MY ANXIETY, BIND MY
  • 00:46:33.250 --> 00:46:37.010
  • ANXIETY. SOMETHING'S GOT TO BE WORTH IT TO YOU. SOMETHING'S GOT
  • 00:46:37.020 --> 00:46:41.040
  • TO BE WORTH IT TO YOU TO PUSH PAST YOUR FEAR. I'M GOING TO
  • 00:46:41.050 --> 00:46:48.050
  • TELL YOU WHAT'S WORTH IT TO ME. JESUS. JESUS. I CAN TELL YOU,
  • 00:46:48.060 --> 00:46:57.120
  • I'M THE OLDEST ONE ON THE PANEL IN THE GROUP OF SPEAKERS THIS
  • 00:46:57.130 --> 00:47:02.230
  • WEEKEND. AND IT DOES NOT MAKE ME FEEL OLD, IT MAKES ME FEEL HAPPY
  • 00:47:02.240 --> 00:47:08.060
  • BECAUSE I'M ABLE TO TELL YOU ALL THESE DECADES LATER I PROMISE
  • 00:47:08.070 --> 00:47:11.190
  • YOU HE IS WORTHY OF ANYTHING HE ASKS OF YOU AND MORE. I PROMISE
  • 00:47:11.200 --> 00:47:15.120
  • YOU HE IS WORTHY. I PROMISE YOU THAT NOTHING ON THIS EARTH IS
  • 00:47:15.130 --> 00:47:19.150
  • LIKE JESUS. I PROMISE YOU THAT. WE'RE TRADING REVELATION FOR
  • 00:47:19.160 --> 00:47:23.280
  • INSPIRATION AND DIVINE AFFECTION FOR APHORISMS. DEAR LORD IN
  • 00:47:23.290 --> 00:47:29.270
  • HEAVEN, NO ONE CAN GET YOUR WORD FOR YOU. NO ONE. NO ONE CAN KNOW
  • 00:47:29.280 --> 00:47:38.040
  • JESUS FOR YOU. YOU HAVE SINGULARITY OF PURPOSE BEFORE
  • 00:47:38.050 --> 00:47:43.010
  • HIM. ONE OF THE BIGGEST FEARS I EVER HAVE IS JUST CONTINUING TO
  • 00:47:43.020 --> 00:47:47.110
  • MAKE THE DECISION TO BE MYSELF. DOES ANYBODY ELSE KNOW WHAT I'M
  • 00:47:47.120 --> 00:47:51.070
  • TALKING ABOUT? BECAUSE I AM THE EASIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD TO
  • 00:47:51.080 --> 00:47:54.220
  • MAKE FUN OF. BEFORE THIS NIGHT IS OVER, SOME OF YOU WILL HAVE
  • 00:47:54.230 --> 00:47:58.090
  • DONE FOR THE OTHER ONE, YOU WILL HAVE TRIED TO DO WHAT I DO WHEN
  • 00:47:58.100 --> 00:48:01.130
  • I SPEAK. YOU KNOW? BECAUSE YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE FUN OF A
  • 00:48:01.140 --> 00:48:04.040
  • PERSON LIKE ME. I WILL SEE PICTURES OF ME SPEAKING AND ONE
  • 00:48:04.050 --> 00:48:07.140
  • FOOT WILL BE WAY OUT HERE. I'M THINKING WHAT WAS I THINKING
  • 00:48:07.150 --> 00:48:10.070
  • EXACTLY WHEN MY FOOT WENT UP BACK THERE? I DON'T KNOW. I
  • 00:48:10.080 --> 00:48:14.020
  • DON'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON IN MY MIND WHEN MY FOOT WAS JUST
  • 00:48:14.030 --> 00:48:18.000
  • SUSPENDED UP THERE IN THE AIR. I DO NOT KNOW. I CANNOT WATCH
  • 00:48:18.010 --> 00:48:22.150
  • MYSELF ON THE T.V. OR ON ANY KIND OF VIDEO OR DVD, BECAUSE I
  • 00:48:22.160 --> 00:48:27.280
  • CANNOT BEAR IT. I CANNOT BEAR IT. WHO DOES THAT KIND OF STUFF?
  • 00:48:27.290 --> 00:48:32.160
  • [LAUGHTER] BUT IT'S JUST ME. IT'S JUST ME. SOMEONE ONLINE NOT
  • 00:48:32.170 --> 00:48:39.070
  • TOO LONG AGO JUST SAY, I DON'T KNOW, I PUT A POST IT OF A
  • 00:48:39.080 --> 00:48:43.280
  • PICTURE WITH ME AND MY GRANDDAUGHTERS IN OUR PAJAMAS,
  • 00:48:43.290 --> 00:48:46.250
  • COMPLETELY MODEST, NOTHING WAS SHOWING, THEN ABOUT A WEEK LATER
  • 00:48:46.260 --> 00:48:51.150
  • I HAD A PICTURE OF ME IN MY ROLLERS. SHE SAID I'M JUST NOT
  • 00:48:51.160 --> 00:48:54.270
  • USED TO THAT KIND OF THING. I JUST THINK CHRISTIAN LEADERS
  • 00:48:54.280 --> 00:48:57.170
  • SHOULD NOT DO THOSE KINDS OF PICTURES. WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT? I
  • 00:48:57.180 --> 00:49:00.160
  • DON'T KNOW WHAT TO TELL YOU. THAT'S ME. [APPLAUSE] DO YOU
  • 00:49:00.170 --> 00:49:10.130
  • JUST HAVE THE GUTS ENOUGH TO JUST BE YOUR OWN SELF? YOUR OWN
  • 00:49:10.140 --> 00:49:15.030
  • SELF? YOUR OWN SELF? YOUR OWN SELF? LISTEN TO ME, LISTEN TO
  • 00:49:15.040 --> 00:49:21.100
  • ME, LISTEN TO ME, I HAVE HAD THE LOVE OF A VERY HANDSOME MAN. I
  • 00:49:21.110 --> 00:49:30.100
  • HAVE KNOWN THE OVERWHELMING AFFECTION OF HOLDING INFANTS IN
  • 00:49:30.110 --> 00:49:38.190
  • MY ARMS AND SAYING TO THEM, MY NAME IS MOM. I HAVE GOTTEN TO
  • 00:49:38.200 --> 00:49:46.170
  • TRAVEL TO SO MANY PLACES OF THE WORLD AND I'M GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:49:46.180 --> 00:49:54.030
  • THAT NOTHING IN MY LIFE EXPERIENCE COMPARES TO 5 MINUTES
  • 00:49:54.040 --> 00:50:06.250
  • WITH JESUS; 5 MINUTES KNOWING JESUS, THAT HE IS PRESENT WITH
  • 00:50:06.260 --> 00:50:15.210
  • ME, THAT AS I PRAY, HE IS CLOSER THAN MY SIN. BETH, HOW HAVE YOU
  • 00:50:15.220 --> 00:50:20.240
  • HUNG IN THERE? I GET THAT ONE A LOT. JESUS. HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH
