  • who forgives all our iniquities
  • 00:03:03.190 --> 00:03:06.170
  • and heals all our diseases.
  • 00:03:08.190 --> 00:03:11.190
  • Here's what I found out.
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:14.080
  • The last time I stood here in
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:15.200
  • front of this camera, I had
  • 00:03:16.040 --> 00:03:19.040
  • a little bit of a sore throat.
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:22.000
  • It had been nagging for a while.
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:24.080
  • Less than a week later, I went
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:28.100
  • to the doctor and was diagnosed
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:31.020
  • with squamous cell carcinoma,
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:33.290
  • cancer covering my vocal cord.
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:38.140
  • Do you know what it's like when
  • 00:03:38.140 --> 00:03:40.130
  • you preach this glorious gospel
  • 00:03:40.160 --> 00:03:43.160
  • for 40 years and the devil looks
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:47.010
  • at you and says, "You'll never
  • 00:03:47.010 --> 00:03:48.250
  • be in front of that camera
  • 00:03:48.250 --> 00:03:50.230
  • again.
  • 00:03:50.230 --> 00:03:52.210
  • I'll silence you.
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:54.130
  • I'll stop you."
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:56.120
  • There was a time for months on
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:58.140
  • end when I could not even utter
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:00.070
  • a whisper.
  • 00:04:00.070 --> 00:04:01.220
  • But look at me now.
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:06.130
  • I'm here to let you know that
  • 00:04:06.230 --> 00:04:09.230
  • your salvation, your healing,
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:14.040
  • your deliverance,
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:16.150
  • are in the package.
  • 00:04:16.150 --> 00:04:18.220
  • Did you notice that?
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:21.150
  • He said--listen to me.
  • 00:04:21.150 --> 00:04:22.290
  • He said it's a benefit.
  • 00:04:22.290 --> 00:04:24.260
  • If you're employed by someone,
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:27.040
  • one of the benefits is health
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:28.140
  • insurance.
  • 00:04:28.140 --> 00:04:29.080
  • You don't have to do anything to
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:30.120
  • get the health insurance, it's
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:31.210
  • part of a package.
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:34.180
  • God says to you tonight, "Your
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:36.030
  • healing tonight is not a bonus.
  • 00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:38.190
  • You don't have to do something
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:39.250
  • extra.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.100
  • It's already provided on the
  • 00:04:41.100 --> 00:04:43.120
  • angry, mean, rugged, cruel beam
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:46.000
  • called Calvary, Jesus paid it
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:49.000
  • all in full."
  • 00:04:51.060 --> 00:04:54.060
  • When I was first diagnosed and
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:58.000
  • this is very, very important to
  • 00:04:58.000 --> 00:04:59.080
  • me, when I was first diagnosed,
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:03.030
  • and they looked at me and they
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:05.190
  • said, "You need to get prepared
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:08.100
  • for a tracheotomy.
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:10.270
  • You need to get prepared for a
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:13.070
  • feeding tube.
  • 00:05:13.070 --> 00:05:15.110
  • You need to get prepared for a
  • 00:05:15.110 --> 00:05:17.060
  • PICC line.
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:19.110
  • You need to get prepared for
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:21.270
  • your throat to swell to the
  • 00:05:21.270 --> 00:05:23.080
  • point you wouldn't be able to
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:25.030
  • breathe unless we cut another
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:26.170
  • hole in your throat.
  • 00:05:28.220 --> 00:05:31.220
  • All around this world, men and
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:33.180
  • women began praying for me.
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:35.210
  • One of the most precious human
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:38.170
  • persons that God ever graced
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:42.060
  • this people planet with, who
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:47.010
  • loves souls and loves people
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:48.270
  • more than anybody I know,
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:52.080
  • sent me a FedEx.
  • 00:05:53.280 --> 00:05:56.280
  • It says, "FedEx to
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:59.120
  • Pastor Rob Parsley from Jan."
  • 00:06:01.030 --> 00:06:04.030
  • Anybody know a Jan?
  • 00:06:07.060 --> 00:06:10.060
  • My precious Jan Crouch sent me
  • 00:06:13.100 --> 00:06:16.100
  • this card, "Cast your care on
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:21.270
  • the Lord and he will sustain
  • 00:06:22.020 --> 00:06:25.020
  • you.
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:27.290
  • He will never ever let the
  • 00:06:29.010 --> 00:06:32.010
  • righteous fall."
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:35.220
  • And I opened it up and it's her
  • 00:06:36.070 --> 00:06:39.070
  • precious writing.
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:41.180
  • And inside, a prayer cloth.
  • 00:06:44.180 --> 00:06:47.180
  • That prayer cloth was precious
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:49.020
  • to me because Jan had had it for
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:53.190
  • over a decade.
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:57.010
  • In fact, I had done a
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:06:59.070
  • Praise-a-Thon in California with
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:01.010
  • Paul and Jan and, after I
  • 00:07:01.010 --> 00:07:03.220
  • preached, Jan came up to me and
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:05.060
  • she said, "Pastor, could I
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:07.050
  • impose on you?
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:09.060
  • Would you let me have that cloth
  • 00:07:09.060 --> 00:07:11.230
  • that you preached with tonight
  • 00:07:11.230 --> 00:07:14.050
  • because I've had a situation in
  • 00:07:14.050 --> 00:07:16.030
  • my throat for a very, very long
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:17.090
  • time."
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:18.230
  • And I placed it on her throat
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:20.180
  • and we prayed together.
  • 00:07:20.180 --> 00:07:22.150
  • She took it home.
  • 00:07:22.150 --> 00:07:24.040
  • Her testimony was that the next
  • 00:07:24.040 --> 00:07:26.220
  • day, the pain and all the side
  • 00:07:26.220 --> 00:07:29.170
  • effects were gone and they never
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:32.100
  • returned.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:34.010
  • So she sent me this little note,
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:39.280
  • "I know, Pastor, you will
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:41.260
  • remember this precious hankie.
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:45.270
  • I had suffered with my throat
  • 00:07:46.100 --> 00:07:49.100
  • for weeks and asked you to pray
  • 00:07:49.100 --> 00:07:51.200
  • for me at a telethon.
  • 00:07:51.200 --> 00:07:54.200
  • You handed me this cloth, placed
  • 00:07:54.200 --> 00:07:56.120
  • it on my throat.
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:57.210
  • Instantly, I was healed."
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:08:00.200
  • I still got the cloth and Jan
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:03.090
  • and I together still have the
  • 00:08:03.090 --> 00:08:04.280
  • faith to believe God for cancer
  • 00:08:05.170 --> 00:08:08.170
  • to leave your body tonight, for
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:11.030
  • deaf ears to come open in your
  • 00:08:11.030 --> 00:08:13.270
  • life tonight, for that blind
  • 00:08:13.270 --> 00:08:16.040
  • left eye to be healed tonight.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.160
  • For your marriage to be restored
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:19.180
  • tonight.
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:21.050
  • For your children to be saved
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:22.160
  • tonight.
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:24.030
  • For the addiction to cocaine to
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:26.050
  • leave you tonight.
  • 00:08:26.050 --> 00:08:28.160
  • For the bondage of hell to be

  • broken off of you and the glory
  • 00:08:30.180 --> 00:08:32.240
  • of God to visit you tonight.
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:38.060
  • She anointed it with oil.

  • All right, I'm gonna introduce
  • 00:10:40.050 --> 00:10:42.200
  • some pastors.
  • 00:10:42.200 --> 00:10:45.050
  • How many of you love pastors?
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:47.220
  • While they're getting the
  • 00:10:47.220 --> 00:10:48.180
  • cameras set up, a pastor came to
  • 00:10:49.110 --> 00:10:52.110
  • me the other day.
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:54.280
  • He said, "Look, I went to John.
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:57.160
  • Shook hands with John after
  • 00:10:57.160 --> 00:10:58.290
  • service and I told him, I said,
  • 00:10:58.290 --> 00:11:01.210
  • 'John, I wish I had five members
  • 00:11:03.140 --> 00:11:06.140
  • just like you.'
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:08.130
  • And John was kind of taken back.
  • 00:11:08.130 --> 00:11:11.050
  • John said, 'Well, Pastor, I'm
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:12.250
  • a little bit embarrassed that
  • 00:11:12.250 --> 00:11:13.230
  • you'd say that, seeing that I've
  • 00:11:13.230 --> 00:11:15.210
  • only been here once this month.
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:18.120
  • I'm a little embarrassed that
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:19.270
  • you'd say that, seeing I never
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.220
  • give an offering and I've never
  • 00:11:21.220 --> 00:11:24.210
  • volunteered in this church and,
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:27.110
  • in fact, I'm not even real sure
  • 00:11:27.110 --> 00:11:29.010
  • I like you or your preaching.
  • 00:11:30.050 --> 00:11:33.050
  • So how could you say you wish
  • 00:11:33.050 --> 00:11:35.210
  • you had five members like me?'
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:38.110
  • He said, 'Well, that's simple,
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.170
  • John.
  • 00:11:39.170 --> 00:11:41.050
  • I'd love to have 5
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:43.050
  • 'cause I've got 50.'"
  • 00:11:43.050 --> 00:11:45.100

  • Georgia, tonight?
  • 00:19:33.180 --> 00:19:36.040
  • Luke chapter 24, verses 5 and 6,
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:39.100
  • are very, very interesting
  • 00:19:39.100 --> 00:19:40.080
  • to me.
  • 00:19:40.080 --> 00:19:41.140
  • They record very simple words
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:43.170
  • but riveting in their reality
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:47.080
  • and revelation.
  • 00:19:47.080 --> 00:19:49.020
  • It's a very simple question.
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:50.280
  • Why seek ye the living
  • 00:19:52.170 --> 00:19:55.170
  • among the dead?
  • 00:19:55.260 --> 00:19:58.260
  • What a riveting question.
  • 00:19:58.260 --> 00:20:00.180
  • You might think about that next
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:01.210
  • Sunday morning.
  • 00:20:01.210 --> 00:20:03.080
  • Why seek ye the living
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:06.250
  • among the dead?
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:08.210
  • Look, if you're going somewhere
  • 00:20:08.210 --> 00:20:10.060
  • and there's never anybody that
  • 00:20:10.060 --> 00:20:11.110
  • waves a hand, sheds a tear,
  • 00:20:11.110 --> 00:20:13.200
  • becomes emotional in any way,
  • 00:20:13.200 --> 00:20:15.150
  • I don't think you ought to leave
  • 00:20:15.150 --> 00:20:17.130
  • that church.
  • 00:20:17.130 --> 00:20:18.250
  • I think you ought to run.
  • 00:20:18.250 --> 00:20:20.140
  • Listen to me.
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:21.270
  • I love everybody
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.130
  • with all of my heart.
  • 00:20:23.130 --> 00:20:24.270
  • But there's a wind blowing again
  • 00:20:24.270 --> 00:20:26.290
  • and it's time for the hot to
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:28.220
  • get hotter.
  • 00:20:28.220 --> 00:20:29.250
  • It's time for us to get our
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:31.120
  • shout on like we've never gotten
  • 00:20:31.120 --> 00:20:33.060
  • our shout on before.
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:35.000
  • It's time for a return to Bible
  • 00:20:35.000 --> 00:20:37.150
  • basics.
  • 00:20:37.150 --> 00:20:38.080
  • Why seek ye the living among the
  • 00:20:38.080 --> 00:20:39.120
  • dead and then this response.
  • 00:20:39.260 --> 00:20:42.260
  • He is not here.
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:46.170
  • He is risen as he said.
  • 00:20:48.110 --> 00:20:51.110
  • Somebody just wave a hand and
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:52.090
  • say, "As he said."
  • 00:20:52.090 --> 00:20:55.010
  • Matthew 28 says, "In the
  • 00:20:55.010 --> 00:20:57.050
  • beginning of the Sabbath, as it
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:59.020
  • began to dawn toward the first
  • 00:20:59.020 --> 00:21:00.180
  • day of the week--" Toward
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:02.040
  • the first day of the week.
  • 00:21:02.040 --> 00:21:03.150
  • Now, you have to pay very close
  • 00:21:03.150 --> 00:21:04.130
  • attention.
  • 00:21:04.130 --> 00:21:07.020
  • As it began to dawn toward
  • 00:21:07.020 --> 00:21:10.010
  • the first day of the week.
  • 00:21:10.010 --> 00:21:11.260
  • At the end of the Sabbath,
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:15.070
  • Shabat, the Jewish Sabbath,
  • 00:21:16.120 --> 00:21:19.120
  • Saturday, sunrise to sunset.
  • 00:21:21.140 --> 00:21:24.140
  • At the end of the Shabat, as it
  • 00:21:25.070 --> 00:21:28.070
  • began to dawn toward the first
  • 00:21:28.070 --> 00:21:31.010
  • day of the week, came
  • 00:21:31.010 --> 00:21:32.270
  • Mary Magdalene and the other
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:34.110
  • Mary for to see the sepulcher.
  • 00:21:34.110 --> 00:21:37.090
  • And there was a great earthquake
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:39.160
  • I hope to shout for the angel of
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:42.030
  • the Lord descended from heaven
  • 00:21:42.070 --> 00:21:45.070
  • and he rolled back the stone
  • 00:21:45.110 --> 00:21:48.110
  • from the door and, I like what
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:50.150
  • he did, he sat down on it.
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:53.220
  • He sat down on it.
  • 00:21:53.220 --> 00:21:55.180
  • I said he sat down on it.
  • 00:21:55.180 --> 00:21:57.290
  • You know, this is where God
  • 00:21:57.290 --> 00:21:59.060
  • dispatched a great big OBGYN
  • 00:21:59.060 --> 00:22:01.210
  • angel over the sapphire sill of
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:04.170
  • heaven's gate and that angel
  • 00:22:04.170 --> 00:22:06.230
  • reported back to heavenly
  • 00:22:06.230 --> 00:22:08.170
  • headquarters, "I see the
  • 00:22:08.170 --> 00:22:10.020
  • problem.
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:11.160
  • There's a stone blocking the
  • 00:22:11.160 --> 00:22:13.200
  • birth canal."
  • 00:22:13.200 --> 00:22:16.000
  • Can I tell you tonight, there's
  • 00:22:16.000 --> 00:22:17.060
  • something blocking your miracle.
  • 00:22:17.060 --> 00:22:20.020
  • But there's about to be the
  • 00:22:20.020 --> 00:22:21.230
  • extraction of the stone.
  • 00:22:21.230 --> 00:22:24.110
  • Get ready 'cause he's about to
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:26.080
  • roll your stone away.
  • 00:22:26.080 --> 00:22:28.280
  • He rolled that stone back away
  • 00:22:28.280 --> 00:22:31.010
  • from the door and he sat down on
  • 00:22:31.010 --> 00:22:32.160
  • it.
  • 00:22:32.160 --> 00:22:34.020
  • His countenance was like
  • 00:22:34.020 --> 00:22:35.180
  • lightning, his raiment was white
  • 00:22:35.180 --> 00:22:37.010
  • as snow.
  • 00:22:37.010 --> 00:22:37.240
  • And for fear of him, the keepers
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:39.120
  • did shake and fell as dead men.
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:42.010
  • And the angel said to the women,
  • 00:22:42.010 --> 00:22:43.260
  • "Fear not ye for I know
  • 00:22:43.260 --> 00:22:46.170
  • who you're looking for."
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:49.080
  • I just wanna shout to the whole
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:51.000
  • wide world, "We know who you're
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:52.140
  • looking for."
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:54.010
  • In the darkness of your
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:55.070
  • midnight, we know who you're

  • looking for.
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.210
  • Laying on that hospital bed,
  • 00:22:57.210 --> 00:22:59.120
  • your body racked in pain,
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:00.270
  • we know who you're looking for.
  • 00:23:00.270 --> 00:23:03.070
  • Stabbing the beast with that

  • steely knife and you just can't
  • 00:23:05.200 --> 00:23:07.230
  • seem to kill that addictive
  • 00:23:07.230 --> 00:23:09.080
  • power, we know who you're

  • who you're looking for.
  • 00:23:15.270 --> 00:23:17.020
  • Wandering and hurting,

  • separated, living in anxiety,
  • 00:23:18.270 --> 00:23:21.270
  • living with angst and
  • 00:23:21.270 --> 00:23:23.110
  • anxiousness, living with your
  • 00:23:23.110 --> 00:23:25.040
  • hands wringing and the sweat
  • 00:23:25.040 --> 00:23:27.160
  • pouring, we know who you're

  • looking for.
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:30.230
  • Sitting there with that revolver
  • 00:23:30.230 --> 00:23:32.070
  • in your desk drawer and you

  • don't even know how you're gonna
  • 00:23:33.220 --> 00:23:35.030
  • make it anymore, I know who
  • 00:23:35.030 --> 00:23:37.060
  • you're looking for.
  • 00:23:37.060 --> 00:23:38.220
  • Why seek ye the living among the
  • 00:23:38.220 --> 00:23:40.060
  • dead?
  • 00:23:40.060 --> 00:23:41.190
  • He's not there.
  • 00:23:41.190 --> 00:23:42.280
  • He's risen as he said.
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:45.100
  • He rolled back that stone and he
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:46.210
  • sat down upon it and the keepers
  • 00:23:46.210 --> 00:23:48.220
  • did shake and fell as dead men.
  • 00:23:48.220 --> 00:23:50.200
  • And he said to the women, "Fear
  • 00:23:50.200 --> 00:23:52.260
  • not ye for I know whom you seek,
  • 00:23:52.260 --> 00:23:55.000
  • Jesus which was crucified."
  • 00:23:57.000 --> 00:24:00.020
  • There was that moment
  • 00:24:00.020 --> 00:24:02.110
  • when God was dead.
  • 00:24:02.170 --> 00:24:05.170
  • There was that moment when never
  • 00:24:05.170 --> 00:24:08.100
  • again would you press your cheek
  • 00:24:08.100 --> 00:24:09.190
  • against the flushed cheek of
  • 00:24:09.190 --> 00:24:11.170
  • an infant child and feel
  • 00:24:11.170 --> 00:24:14.040
  • the vibration of life.
  • 00:24:14.040 --> 00:24:15.170
  • Never again would a rose bloom,
  • 00:24:15.230 --> 00:24:18.230
  • never again would its fragrance
  • 00:24:18.230 --> 00:24:20.020
  • fill the air.
  • 00:24:20.020 --> 00:24:22.060
  • The earth itself convulsed and
  • 00:24:22.060 --> 00:24:24.000
  • shook, graves split open,
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:26.280
  • men stood paralyzed,
  • 00:24:26.280 --> 00:24:28.160
  • women shrieked in horror.
  • 00:24:28.160 --> 00:24:31.030
  • The angelicoes clattered
  • 00:24:31.030 --> 00:24:32.200
  • their swords together.
  • 00:24:32.200 --> 00:24:34.260
  • The darkened regions of the
  • 00:24:34.260 --> 00:24:37.030
  • underworld clapped their
  • 00:24:37.030 --> 00:24:38.010
  • fettered hands together in
  • 00:24:38.010 --> 00:24:39.260
  • jubilation God was dead.
  • 00:24:43.290 --> 00:24:46.290
  • So I wrote a book.
  • 00:24:46.290 --> 00:24:49.220
  • It's called, "Gone: One Man,
  • 00:24:51.030 --> 00:24:54.030
  • One Tomb, One Sunday."
  • 00:24:54.120 --> 00:24:57.120
  • It's the sequel to the book,
  • 00:24:57.120 --> 00:25:00.090
  • "The Cross: One Man, One Tree,
  • 00:25:00.090 --> 00:25:03.080
  • One Friday."
  • 00:25:03.080 --> 00:25:04.280
  • "Gone: One Man, One Tomb, One
  • 00:25:05.090 --> 00:25:08.090
  • Sunday."
  • 00:25:08.090 --> 00:25:09.050
  • Now, let's think about this for
  • 00:25:09.050 --> 00:25:10.000
  • a moment.
  • 00:25:10.000 --> 00:25:11.130
  • Jesus spoke these words, "It is
  • 00:25:12.250 --> 00:25:15.250
  • an evil and a perverse
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:17.020
  • generation that seeks after
  • 00:25:17.020 --> 00:25:18.020
  • a sign."
  • 00:25:18.020 --> 00:25:20.030
  • He went on to say, "And no sign
  • 00:25:20.030 --> 00:25:22.130
  • will be given except that which
  • 00:25:22.130 --> 00:25:24.100
  • was given as the Prophet Jonas,"
  • 00:25:26.250 --> 00:25:29.250
  • for Jonah--watch me--was 3
  • 00:25:29.250 --> 00:25:32.180
  • nights and 3 days in the belly
  • 00:25:33.100 --> 00:25:36.100
  • of the whale.
  • 00:25:36.100 --> 00:25:39.020
  • So shall the Son of God be 3
  • 00:25:39.020 --> 00:25:42.000
  • days and 3 nights in the inward
  • 00:25:42.220 --> 00:25:45.220
  • parts of the earth.
  • 00:25:48.250 --> 00:25:51.250
  • Question: When was Jesus
  • 00:25:52.280 --> 00:25:55.280
  • crucified?
  • 00:25:55.280 --> 00:25:58.060
  • Well, that was Friday.
  • 00:25:58.120 --> 00:26:01.140
  • It was Friday when God, who
  • 00:26:02.150 --> 00:26:05.150
  • carpets the valley in green, God
  • 00:26:07.100 --> 00:26:10.100
  • who feeds the baby raven, God
  • 00:26:11.140 --> 00:26:14.140
  • who stood on nothing and
  • 00:26:14.140 --> 00:26:16.210
  • declared those things that be
  • 00:26:16.210 --> 00:26:18.140
  • not as though they were, God the
  • 00:26:18.140 --> 00:26:21.000
  • eternally self-existent God,
  • 00:26:21.030 --> 00:26:24.030
  • the God all by himself, God
  • 00:26:26.080 --> 00:26:29.080
  • closed the curtain and turned
  • 00:26:30.150 --> 00:26:33.150
  • his back on his Son and walked
  • 00:26:33.150 --> 00:26:34.280
  • away.
  • 00:26:34.280 --> 00:26:36.280
  • Psalm 18 said, "And wrapped
  • 00:26:36.280 --> 00:26:39.050
  • himself in black."
  • 00:26:39.050 --> 00:26:42.050
  • God who your Bible declares
  • 00:26:42.050 --> 00:26:44.150
  • doubled his fist and smote his
  • 00:26:44.150 --> 00:26:46.200
  • own Son upon the cheek.
  • 00:26:47.120 --> 00:26:50.120
  • Had he not, he could not have
  • 00:26:50.120 --> 00:26:52.010
  • expired.
  • 00:26:52.010 --> 00:26:54.070
  • It was God you see that hung
  • 00:26:54.070 --> 00:26:56.090
  • there, suspended in the agony of
  • 00:26:56.110 --> 00:26:59.110
  • death between heaven and earth.
  • 00:26:59.130 --> 00:27:02.150
  • It was God incarnate, not deity
  • 00:27:04.140 --> 00:27:07.140
  • humanized, not humanity deified.
  • 00:27:07.140 --> 00:27:10.130
  • He was both and yet neither.
  • 00:27:10.280 --> 00:27:13.280
  • He was all God and all man and
  • 00:27:13.280 --> 00:27:16.150
  • there he stood, there he hung.
  • 00:27:17.060 --> 00:27:20.060
  • There he suffered,
  • 00:27:20.060 --> 00:27:21.120
  • there he bled, there he died,
  • 00:27:21.120 --> 00:27:23.110
  • there he cried.
  • 00:27:23.120 --> 00:27:26.120
  • My Father and my God, why have
  • 00:27:27.130 --> 00:27:30.130
  • you--I understand that Elijah
  • 00:27:30.230 --> 00:27:33.230
  • and Jeremiah walked away.
  • 00:27:33.230 --> 00:27:35.230
  • I understood that my mother
  • 00:27:35.230 --> 00:27:37.110
  • can't handle it.
  • 00:27:37.110 --> 00:27:38.210
  • I understand that my disciples
  • 00:27:38.210 --> 00:27:41.000
  • had fled.
  • 00:27:41.000 --> 00:27:41.270
  • But why have you forsaken me?
  • 00:27:47.150 --> 00:27:50.150
  • No answer came.
  • 00:27:50.210 --> 00:27:53.210
  • He hung his head.
  • 00:27:54.190 --> 00:27:57.190
  • And Mary his mother who watched
  • 00:27:57.190 --> 00:27:59.050
  • him take his first breath, stood
  • 00:28:00.210 --> 00:28:03.210
  • in abject horror and watched him
  • 00:28:03.270 --> 00:28:06.270
  • exhale his last.
  • 00:28:08.100 --> 00:28:11.100
  • He said, "Into thy hands,
  • 00:28:11.150 --> 00:28:14.150
  • I commit my Spirit."
  • 00:28:15.050 --> 00:28:18.050
  • And he gave up the Ghost.
  • 00:28:23.070 --> 00:28:26.070
  • Hell in jubilation.
  • 00:28:26.070 --> 00:28:28.120
  • Satan himself sat scheming at
  • 00:28:28.120 --> 00:28:30.110
  • his imperial throne.
  • 00:28:31.030 --> 00:28:34.030
  • He had heard that Jesus said,
  • 00:28:35.160 --> 00:28:38.160
  • "Destroy this temple and in 3
  • 00:28:38.180 --> 00:28:41.180
  • days I will build it back."
  • 00:28:41.180 --> 00:28:44.160
  • He remembered Lazarus.
  • 00:28:44.160 --> 00:28:46.120
  • He was in the tomb four.
  • 00:28:46.250 --> 00:28:49.250
  • He sat scheming.
  • 00:28:49.260 --> 00:28:52.260
  • Suddenly--that means very, very
  • 00:28:56.040 --> 00:28:59.040
  • quickly.
  • 00:29:00.230 --> 00:29:03.230
  • A light appeared at the end of
  • 00:29:03.230 --> 00:29:06.230
  • the darkness.
  • 00:29:06.230 --> 00:29:09.160
  • And the Son of God waded through
  • 00:29:09.160 --> 00:29:12.030
  • the ashes of bygone millenniums
  • 00:29:12.030 --> 00:29:13.210
  • of time and grabbed Satan by the
  • 00:29:13.210 --> 00:29:16.100
  • nape of the neck, cast him off
  • 00:29:16.100 --> 00:29:18.280
  • his imperial throne, put one
  • 00:29:18.280 --> 00:29:20.140
  • foot on devils and the other on
  • 00:29:20.140 --> 00:29:21.250
  • the crumbling empire called
  • 00:29:21.250 --> 00:29:23.060
  • cancer.
  • 00:29:26.020 --> 00:29:29.020
  • Lifted his hands to the Father
  • 00:29:29.020 --> 00:29:30.220
  • and said, "I'm Alpha and I'm
  • 00:29:30.220 --> 00:29:32.250
  • Omega.
  • 00:29:32.250 --> 00:29:34.170
  • I'm the beginning and the
  • 00:29:34.170 --> 00:29:35.130
  • ending, the first and the last,
  • 00:29:35.130 --> 00:29:36.270
  • he that was and is and is to
  • 00:29:36.270 --> 00:29:38.080
  • come."
  • 00:29:38.080 --> 00:29:40.040
  • Grabbed the keys of death, hell,
  • 00:29:40.040 --> 00:29:42.010
  • and the grave out of the
  • 00:29:42.010 --> 00:29:42.250
  • unyielding hands of the
  • 00:29:42.250 --> 00:29:43.280
  • Antichrist, locked 'em to his
  • 00:29:43.280 --> 00:29:45.200
  • girdle, climbed back up in his
  • 00:29:45.200 --> 00:29:47.050
  • chariot.
  • 00:29:47.050 --> 00:29:49.060
  • Rode high up on the forever
  • 00:29:49.060 --> 00:29:51.040
  • mountain, looked at judgment and
  • 00:29:51.250 --> 00:29:54.250
  • the law and said, "It's over."
  • 00:29:54.250 --> 00:29:57.240
  • Looked at Sinai, that mountain
  • 00:29:58.160 --> 00:30:01.160
  • that quaked and made the hearts
  • 00:30:01.160 --> 00:30:03.040
  • of men tremble.
  • 00:30:03.040 --> 00:30:05.120
  • He washed it that day in
  • 00:30:05.120 --> 00:30:07.130
  • the blood of grace and said,
  • 00:30:07.150 --> 00:30:10.150
  • "Neither do I condemn thee."
  • 00:30:10.150 --> 00:30:12.240
  • Jesus paid it all.
  • 00:30:19.240 --> 00:30:22.240
  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:30:25.140 --> 00:30:28.140
  • He is not here.
  • 00:30:28.140 --> 00:30:30.180
  • He is risen.
  • 00:30:30.290 --> 00:30:33.290
  • The Resurrection, that's what
  • 00:30:33.290 --> 00:30:34.270
  • I'm talking about.
  • 00:30:34.270 --> 00:30:36.220
  • The apex of our hope in God.
  • 00:30:36.220 --> 00:30:38.130
  • The crown jewel of our faith.
  • 00:30:38.130 --> 00:30:40.130
  • The unanswerable demonstration
  • 00:30:40.130 --> 00:30:42.160
  • of the profoundest fact
  • 00:30:42.160 --> 00:30:44.150
  • concerning Jesus of Nazareth.
  • 00:30:44.290 --> 00:30:47.290
  • I'm glad that he wants to
  • 00:30:47.290 --> 00:30:49.140
  • make your life better.
  • 00:30:49.140 --> 00:30:50.260
  • I'm glad that he wants to
  • 00:30:50.260 --> 00:30:51.260
  • prosper you.
  • 00:30:51.260 --> 00:30:53.060
  • I'm glad that he wants to heal
  • 00:30:53.060 --> 00:30:54.150
  • this hunk of flesh.
  • 00:30:54.150 --> 00:30:56.120
  • I'm glad that he wants to bless
  • 00:30:56.120 --> 00:30:58.000
  • you but, oh my dear friend, do
  • 00:30:58.000 --> 00:31:00.150
  • not limit what he has done for
  • 00:31:00.150 --> 00:31:03.040
  • you to this earthly existence.
  • 00:31:03.080 --> 00:31:06.080
  • Your Bible says--I gotta
  • 00:31:06.270 --> 00:31:09.270
  • hurry--he was born the seed of
  • 00:31:10.140 --> 00:31:13.140
  • David according to the flesh.
  • 00:31:13.240 --> 00:31:16.240
  • Ha, it was the virgin's son
  • 00:31:16.270 --> 00:31:19.270
  • that died on that cross but the
  • 00:31:20.060 --> 00:31:23.060
  • Son of God leaped off that cross
  • 00:31:23.060 --> 00:31:26.010
  • and chased the devil through
  • 00:31:26.010 --> 00:31:28.050
  • every graveyard in Jerusalem.
  • 00:31:28.090 --> 00:31:31.090
  • He cornered him in his imperial
  • 00:31:31.090 --> 00:31:33.150
  • throne room, sitting there on
  • 00:31:33.150 --> 00:31:35.100
  • that throne of rust and moth and
  • 00:31:35.100 --> 00:31:37.230
  • dust and corruption and sin and
  • 00:31:37.230 --> 00:31:40.040
  • sickness and poverty and pain.
  • 00:31:41.150 --> 00:31:44.150
  • Satan said, "Don't come a step
  • 00:31:44.150 --> 00:31:47.030
  • further.
  • 00:31:47.030 --> 00:31:49.010
  • I've got worms and moth and
  • 00:31:49.010 --> 00:31:49.270
  • dust."
  • 00:31:49.270 --> 00:31:52.010
  • Jesus said, "If those lions were
  • 00:31:52.010 --> 00:31:54.190
  • no match for David--Daniel, your
  • 00:31:54.280 --> 00:31:57.280
  • rust is no threat to me."
  • 00:31:59.140 --> 00:32:02.160
  • He's alive.
  • 00:32:03.020 --> 00:32:06.020
  • Now, listen.
  • 00:32:06.020 --> 00:32:08.020
  • If he's not alive, we might just
  • 00:32:08.210 --> 00:32:11.210
  • as well line Muhammad and
  • 00:32:11.210 --> 00:32:13.170
  • Krishna and Buddha and the rest
  • 00:32:15.110 --> 00:32:18.110
  • of 'em up on this platform
  • 00:32:18.110 --> 00:32:19.220
  • tonight along with Jesus, a
  • 00:32:21.140 --> 00:32:24.140
  • sorry spectacle over which the
  • 00:32:24.140 --> 00:32:26.280
  • angels of heaven would hang
  • 00:32:26.280 --> 00:32:27.270
  • their heads and weep.
  • 00:32:27.270 --> 00:32:30.060
  • But I'm here to tell you tonight
  • 00:32:30.060 --> 00:32:32.080
  • the unanswerable demonstration
  • 00:32:32.080 --> 00:32:34.110
  • is this.
  • 00:32:34.110 --> 00:32:36.120
  • I've been to the grave of
  • 00:32:36.120 --> 00:32:37.190
  • John F. Kennedy,
  • 00:32:37.190 --> 00:32:39.090
  • I've been to the grave
  • 00:32:39.090 --> 00:32:40.060
  • of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
  • 00:32:40.060 --> 00:32:42.220
  • I've been to the grave
  • 00:32:42.220 --> 00:32:43.200
  • of Smith Wigglesworth.
  • 00:32:43.200 --> 00:32:46.160
  • They're all conspicuous because
  • 00:32:46.170 --> 00:32:49.170
  • who--of who is there.
  • 00:32:49.170 --> 00:32:51.230
  • But I've been to an empty stone
  • 00:32:52.100 --> 00:32:55.100
  • cavern just outside the city's
  • 00:32:56.070 --> 00:32:59.070
  • gates of Jerusalem, the city of
  • 00:33:00.160 --> 00:33:03.160
  • gold.
  • 00:33:03.160 --> 00:33:05.090
  • Millions go by there every year.
  • 00:33:05.090 --> 00:33:07.180
  • They're not going there because
  • 00:33:07.180 --> 00:33:09.060
  • of who's in that tomb.
  • 00:33:09.060 --> 00:33:11.160
  • They're going there because of
  • 00:33:11.160 --> 00:33:13.130
  • who has exited that tomb.
  • 00:33:14.290 --> 00:33:17.290
  • He's alive tonight.
  • 00:33:17.290 --> 00:33:19.120
  • He's able to break every
  • 00:33:19.120 --> 00:33:21.190
  • bondage, loose every burden,
  • 00:33:21.190 --> 00:33:24.020
  • heal every sick and
  • 00:33:24.020 --> 00:33:25.120
  • tormented soul.
  • 00:33:25.230 --> 00:33:28.230
  • Never was a Savior like Jesus.
  • 00:33:30.160 --> 00:33:33.160
  • He's gone and he's coming again.
  • 00:33:35.100 --> 00:33:38.100
  • Receive him now into your heart.
  • 00:33:38.100 --> 00:33:40.250
  • Open your heart and say these
  • 00:33:40.250 --> 00:33:42.070
  • words, "Lord Jesus, crucified,
  • 00:33:43.260 --> 00:33:46.260
  • risen, and coming again.
  • 00:33:47.040 --> 00:33:50.040
  • Come into my heart.
  • 00:33:50.040 --> 00:33:51.160
  • Forgive me.
  • 00:33:51.160 --> 00:33:53.090
  • You're alive.
  • 00:33:53.090 --> 00:33:55.070
  • Be alive to me tonight."
  • 00:33:55.070 --> 00:33:57.130
  • Now, lift both hands and
  • 00:33:57.130 --> 00:33:58.260
  • thank him for eternal life.
  • 00:33:59.140 --> 00:34:02.160
  • Well, the book is simply called,
  • 00:34:05.130 --> 00:34:08.130
  • "Gone."
  • 00:34:08.130 --> 00:34:10.170
  • In it, I answer questions
  • 00:34:10.170 --> 00:34:12.040
  • like this.
  • 00:34:12.040 --> 00:34:13.200
  • If Jesus was crucified on Friday
  • 00:34:13.200 --> 00:34:15.260
  • night, rose again just after
  • 00:34:15.260 --> 00:34:18.070
  • midnight on Sunday, how's that 3
  • 00:34:18.070 --> 00:34:20.270
  • days and 3 nights?
  • 00:34:22.080 --> 00:34:25.080
  • What are you going to do when a
  • 00:34:25.080 --> 00:34:26.170
  • skeptic comes up to you and
  • 00:34:26.170 --> 00:34:27.210
  • says, "Y'all say that Jesus was
  • 00:34:27.210 --> 00:34:29.240
  • crucified on Friday and rose on
  • 00:34:29.240 --> 00:34:31.130
  • Sunday morning but Jesus said
  • 00:34:31.130 --> 00:34:34.070
  • he'd be in the earth 3 days and
  • 00:34:34.070 --> 00:34:35.280
  • 3 nights."
  • 00:34:35.280 --> 00:34:37.230
  • It's in the book.
  • 00:34:39.050 --> 00:34:42.050
  • The answer is there.
  • 00:34:42.050 --> 00:34:44.080
  • It's called "Gone."
  • 00:34:44.080 --> 00:34:45.120
  • You can go to readgone.com
  • 00:34:45.120 --> 00:34:48.110
  • and get your copy.
  • 00:34:48.110 --> 00:34:50.080
  • My wonderful, wonderful friends,
  • 00:34:50.080 --> 00:34:52.180
  • Bishop Clint Brown and
  • 00:34:52.180 --> 00:34:54.260
  • Geron Davis wrote a song
  • 00:34:54.260 --> 00:34:56.160
  • for this book.
  • 00:34:56.160 --> 00:34:58.100
  • It's simply called, "Gone."
  • 00:34:59.010 --> 00:35:02.030
  • Early in the morning,
  • 00:35:24.090 --> 00:35:27.090
  • night gives way to dawn.
  • 00:35:32.270 --> 00:35:35.270
  • Jerusalem is waking,
  • 00:35:37.200 --> 00:35:40.200
  • life drifts along.
  • 00:35:46.030 --> 00:35:49.030
  • And just outside the city
  • 00:35:50.200 --> 00:35:53.200
  • right around the break
  • 00:35:53.200 --> 00:35:55.130
  • of day, they had come
  • 00:36:00.230 --> 00:36:03.230
  • to mourn their Master but
  • 00:36:03.290 --> 00:36:06.290
  • they hear an angel say,
  • 00:36:11.100 --> 00:36:14.100
  • He said, Gone.
  • 00:36:15.200 --> 00:36:18.200
  • Don't be afraid.
  • 00:36:19.090 --> 00:36:22.090
  • Gone.
  • 00:36:22.090 --> 00:36:25.080
  • Just like he said.
  • 00:36:25.240 --> 00:36:28.240
  • Gone.
  • 00:36:28.240 --> 00:36:31.210
  • He conquered death.
  • 00:36:33.100 --> 00:36:36.100
  • He is gone.
  • 00:36:39.070 --> 00:36:42.070
  • My mind can't comprehend
  • 00:36:43.120 --> 00:36:46.120
  • yet I must believe.
  • 00:36:51.180 --> 00:36:54.180
  • A cross, three nails,
  • 00:36:54.230 --> 00:36:57.230
  • one trumpet played.
  • 00:36:57.230 --> 00:37:00.020
  • Humanity's redeemed.
  • 00:37:04.070 --> 00:37:07.070
  • Oh, a life of sin
  • 00:37:07.070 --> 00:37:09.280
  • every way transformed
  • 00:37:10.210 --> 00:37:13.210
  • by heaven's grace.
  • 00:37:17.260 --> 00:37:20.260
  • See, the curse
  • 00:37:20.260 --> 00:37:22.160
  • of sin has passed.
  • 00:37:22.210 --> 00:37:25.210
  • Now, love is in its place.
  • 00:37:31.150 --> 00:37:34.150
  • Gone, sin was erased.
  • 00:37:37.290 --> 00:37:40.290
  • Gone, shame and disgrace.
  • 00:37:44.110 --> 00:37:47.110
  • Gone, the judgment I face.
  • 00:37:51.050 --> 00:37:54.050
  • Gone, justice made grace.
  • 00:37:57.110 --> 00:38:00.130
  • Gone, love took my place.
  • 00:38:04.060 --> 00:38:07.060
  • Gone, without a trace.
  • 00:38:10.270 --> 00:38:13.270
  • Gone.
  • 00:38:17.180 --> 00:38:20.180
  • Mistakes were the beginning
  • 00:38:20.200 --> 00:38:23.200
  • what was and is to come.
  • 00:38:23.200 --> 00:38:26.180
  • The curse of
  • 00:38:26.180 --> 00:38:29.130
  • human flesh removed,
  • 00:38:29.130 --> 00:38:30.160
  • by heaven's only One
  • 00:38:30.190 --> 00:38:33.190
  • No evidence behind me,
  • 00:38:33.240 --> 00:38:36.240
  • the record signed and clear
  • 00:38:37.140 --> 00:38:40.140
  • Time to search forever
  • 00:38:40.140 --> 00:38:42.290
  • it's no longer here.
  • 00:38:45.150 --> 00:38:48.150
  • Gone, sin was erased.
  • 00:38:51.260 --> 00:38:54.260
  • Gone, shame and disgrace.
  • 00:38:58.160 --> 00:39:01.180
  • Gone, the judgment I face.
  • 00:39:05.030 --> 00:39:08.030
  • Gone, justice made grace
  • 00:39:11.210 --> 00:39:14.210

  • 00:39:31.240 --> 00:39:34.240
  • Gone, love took my place.
  • 00:39:37.230 --> 00:39:40.230
  • Gone, without a trace.
  • 00:39:44.070 --> 00:39:47.070
  • Gone.
  • 00:39:50.140 --> 00:39:53.140
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:39:53.140 --> 00:39:55.170
  • He's gone.
  • 00:39:55.240 --> 00:39:58.240
  • Whoa.
  • 00:40:00.010 --> 00:40:03.010
  • - Ron: Well, he is gone.
  • 00:40:16.250 --> 00:40:19.040

  • It's good to be with you.
  • 00:41:07.130 --> 00:41:08.060
  • - Ron: God is doing amazing

  • 00:41:10.080 --> 00:41:11.010
  • - Frank: Yes, he is.
  • 00:41:11.010 --> 00:41:11.210
  • Yes, he is.
  • 00:41:11.210 --> 00:41:12.130
  • - Ron: You are an educator.

  • You are a classical preacher.
  • 00:41:15.180 --> 00:41:18.140
  • And I thank God for what

  • he's doing.
  • 00:41:20.020 --> 00:41:20.200
  • You and your whole family,
  • 00:41:20.200 --> 00:41:22.010
  • you're a blessing to us all.
  • 00:41:22.010 --> 00:41:24.130
  • Now, I know you've got
  • 00:41:24.130 --> 00:41:25.050
  • a new book.
  • 00:41:25.050 --> 00:41:26.100
  • Tell me a little bit about it.
  • 00:41:26.100 --> 00:41:27.210
  • - Frank: Well, you know, we've
  • 00:41:27.210 --> 00:41:28.130
  • got one that's--we're working
  • 00:41:28.130 --> 00:41:29.110
  • on and this book is entitled,
  • 00:41:29.110 --> 00:41:30.240
  • "Choose Life and Live."
  • 00:41:30.240 --> 00:41:32.100
  • - Ron: "Choose Life and Live."
  • 00:41:32.100 --> 00:41:33.170
  • - Frank: And it's a little bit
  • 00:41:33.170 --> 00:41:35.220
  • odd because it gets into
  • 00:41:35.220 --> 00:41:37.220
  • the core of, I think, one of
  • 00:41:37.220 --> 00:41:39.280
  • the most powerful subjects
  • 00:41:39.280 --> 00:41:41.230
  • that there is, you know,
  • 00:41:41.230 --> 00:41:43.140
  • living and dying, you know.
  • 00:41:43.140 --> 00:41:45.060
  • And one of the things that
  • 00:41:45.060 --> 00:41:46.190
  • really prompted me with this,
  • 00:41:46.190 --> 00:41:49.040
  • as I kept looking at
  • 00:41:49.040 --> 00:41:49.270
  • the Scriptures, and not--let me
  • 00:41:49.270 --> 00:41:51.070
  • tell you, you're looking great,
  • 00:41:51.070 --> 00:41:52.160
  • man, really.
  • 00:41:52.160 --> 00:41:53.050
  • - Ron: I do?
  • 00:41:53.050 --> 00:41:54.010
  • - Frank: Yeah,
  • 00:41:54.010 --> 00:41:54.160
  • you're looking good.
  • 00:41:54.160 --> 00:41:55.080
  • - Ron: Well, thank you.
  • 00:41:55.080 --> 00:41:55.270
  • - Frank: You're looking
  • 00:41:55.270 --> 00:41:56.160
  • good, yeah.
  • 00:41:56.160 --> 00:41:57.080
  • The beard becomes you and, yeah.
  • 00:41:57.080 --> 00:41:58.150
  • - Ron: The beard?
  • 00:41:58.150 --> 00:41:59.220
  • You know, I get all kinds.
  • 00:41:59.220 --> 00:42:00.150
  • Folks, we love you all.
  • 00:42:00.150 --> 00:42:02.000
  • Some folks say, "Would you
  • 00:42:02.000 --> 00:42:03.160
  • please get whatever
  • 00:42:03.160 --> 00:42:05.030
  • that is on your face off?"
  • 00:42:05.030 --> 00:42:07.010
  • Including my mother.
  • 00:42:07.010 --> 00:42:08.270
  • And others who say,
  • 00:42:08.270 --> 00:42:10.020
  • "We love it," and so
  • 00:42:10.020 --> 00:42:11.050
  • we love all of you anyway.
  • 00:42:11.050 --> 00:42:13.100
  • I wasn't permitted to shave
  • 00:42:13.100 --> 00:42:15.120
  • during those treatments
  • 00:42:15.120 --> 00:42:17.140
  • and I said, "Well, I'll leave
  • 00:42:17.140 --> 00:42:18.120
  • it on for a little while just
  • 00:42:18.120 --> 00:42:19.150
  • to let the devil know he tried
  • 00:42:19.150 --> 00:42:21.090
  • but he couldn't do it.
  • 00:42:21.090 --> 00:42:23.190
  • - Frank: Couldn't do it, amen.
  • 00:42:23.190 --> 00:42:24.130
  • - Ron: So it wear it in
  • 00:42:24.130 --> 00:42:25.120
  • victory, you see.
  • 00:42:25.120 --> 00:42:26.080
  • - Frank: He thought he was
  • 00:42:26.080 --> 00:42:26.280
  • gonna take you out, you know.
  • 00:42:26.280 --> 00:42:27.270
  • He wanted to take you out
  • 00:42:27.270 --> 00:42:29.010
  • because your voice is so
  • 00:42:29.010 --> 00:42:29.250
  • powerful and so strong and
  • 00:42:29.250 --> 00:42:31.120
  • instrumental in these days,
  • 00:42:31.120 --> 00:42:32.220
  • particularly as we pivotally
  • 00:42:32.220 --> 00:42:34.010
  • move toward the latter times
  • 00:42:34.010 --> 00:42:35.220
  • in the earth for
  • 00:42:35.220 --> 00:42:37.010
  • the body of Christ.
  • 00:42:37.010 --> 00:42:38.070
  • And that's one of the things
  • 00:42:38.070 --> 00:42:39.120
  • that prompted me about this
  • 00:42:39.120 --> 00:42:40.090
  • book, "Choose Life and Live,"
  • 00:42:40.090 --> 00:42:41.140
  • because I got to thinking.
  • 00:42:41.140 --> 00:42:42.190
  • I said, "Well, you know,
  • 00:42:42.190 --> 00:42:43.110
  • the Bible says in 1 Corinthians
  • 00:42:43.110 --> 00:42:44.290
  • chapter 15, verse 51,
  • 00:42:44.290 --> 00:42:46.150
  • "Behold, I show you a mystery.
  • 00:42:46.150 --> 00:42:47.170
  • We're not all gonna sleep,
  • 00:42:47.170 --> 00:42:49.090
  • which means not all be dead.
  • 00:42:49.090 --> 00:42:51.010
  • We're all gonna be changed
  • 00:42:51.010 --> 00:42:52.150
  • in a moment, in a twinkling,
  • 00:42:52.150 --> 00:42:53.120
  • corruptible puts on
  • 00:42:53.120 --> 00:42:54.090
  • incorruptibility and, you know,
  • 00:42:54.090 --> 00:42:56.020
  • the mortal puts on immortality."
  • 00:42:56.020 --> 00:42:57.170
  • I said, "Whoa, that's powerful.
  • 00:42:57.170 --> 00:42:58.110
  • So somebody's gonna be here
  • 00:42:58.110 --> 00:42:59.100
  • when Jesus comes."
  • 00:42:59.100 --> 00:43:01.110
  • Somebody's gonna be praising
  • 00:43:01.110 --> 00:43:02.150
  • him, shouting and dancing,
  • 00:43:02.150 --> 00:43:04.190
  • preaching the Word of God,
  • 00:43:04.190 --> 00:43:05.290
  • and doing all those things.
  • 00:43:05.290 --> 00:43:07.040
  • Then I said, "Well, okay.
  • 00:43:07.040 --> 00:43:08.080
  • But 1 Thessalonians 4:14 to 16,
  • 00:43:08.150 --> 00:43:11.150
  • in essence, says, you know,
  • 00:43:11.150 --> 00:43:12.190
  • we that are alive remain.
  • 00:43:12.190 --> 00:43:14.220
  • We're not within them that are
  • 00:43:14.220 --> 00:43:16.120
  • asleep in Christ."
  • 00:43:16.120 --> 00:43:17.210
  • And it says twice,
  • 00:43:17.210 --> 00:43:18.250
  • "We that are alive and remain."
  • 00:43:18.250 --> 00:43:20.120
  • Twice, "We that
  • 00:43:20.120 --> 00:43:22.040
  • are alive remain."
  • 00:43:22.040 --> 00:43:23.000
  • So then somebody's
  • 00:43:23.000 --> 00:43:23.180
  • gonna be alive and remain
  • 00:43:23.180 --> 00:43:24.130
  • when Jesus comes.
  • 00:43:24.130 --> 00:43:25.240
  • And so somebody's gotta plan
  • 00:43:25.240 --> 00:43:27.020
  • on being here and you can't be
  • 00:43:28.060 --> 00:43:31.060
  • here if you don't talk right,
  • 00:43:31.060 --> 00:43:32.050
  • you know.
  • 00:43:32.050 --> 00:43:33.270
  • You can't be here if you don't
  • 00:43:33.270 --> 00:43:35.000
  • think right 'cause as a man
  • 00:43:35.000 --> 00:43:36.090
  • thinketh, so is he.
  • 00:43:36.090 --> 00:43:37.150
  • You know, in his heart.
  • 00:43:37.150 --> 00:43:38.080
  • Proverbs 23:7.
  • 00:43:38.080 --> 00:43:39.220
  • And then death and life are
  • 00:43:39.220 --> 00:43:40.250
  • in the power of the tongue.
  • 00:43:40.250 --> 00:43:42.000
  • So then--so really, I said,
  • 00:43:42.000 --> 00:43:43.250
  • "Well, God, if death and life
  • 00:43:43.250 --> 00:43:45.040
  • are in the power of the tongue,
  • 00:43:45.040 --> 00:43:46.110
  • then the devil doesn't have the
  • 00:43:46.110 --> 00:43:48.150
  • power anymore to kill, really."
  • 00:43:48.150 --> 00:43:50.270
  • He tries to act like he does
  • 00:43:50.270 --> 00:43:52.130
  • but what he wants to do
  • 00:43:52.130 --> 00:43:53.250
  • is get in your mind.
  • 00:43:53.250 --> 00:43:55.070
  • If he gets you to thinking deaf,
  • 00:43:55.070 --> 00:43:56.250
  • then you'll start speaking deaf
  • 00:43:56.250 --> 00:43:59.000
  • because out of the abundance of
  • 00:43:59.000 --> 00:44:00.250
  • the heart, the mouth speaketh.
  • 00:44:00.250 --> 00:44:02.090
  • And the heart there in Matthew,
  • 00:44:02.090 --> 00:44:03.250
  • I think it's Matthew 12
  • 00:44:03.250 --> 00:44:06.090
  • verse 36 and 7,
  • 00:44:06.090 --> 00:44:07.150
  • really meant the thoughts.
  • 00:44:07.150 --> 00:44:09.050
  • 'Cause the word kardiá is the
  • 00:44:09.050 --> 00:44:10.290
  • Greek word originally for heart.
  • 00:44:10.290 --> 00:44:12.190
  • It means the thoughts and
  • 00:44:12.190 --> 00:44:13.230
  • reasonings and the assumptions.
  • 00:44:13.230 --> 00:44:15.150
  • So how we think becomes
  • 00:44:15.150 --> 00:44:16.260
  • how we speak.
  • 00:44:16.260 --> 00:44:17.290
  • So the devil wants your mind
  • 00:44:17.290 --> 00:44:19.180
  • because if he gets you thinking
  • 00:44:19.180 --> 00:44:20.280
  • wrong, you're gonna speak wrong.
  • 00:44:20.280 --> 00:44:23.240
  • If you speak wrong,
  • 00:44:23.240 --> 00:44:25.040
  • 'Cause whatever you have is
  • 00:44:27.080 --> 00:44:28.080
  • coming from what you say.
  • 00:44:28.080 --> 00:44:29.160
  • - Ron: Think wrong, speak
  • 00:44:29.160 --> 00:44:30.200
  • wrong--
  • 00:44:30.200 --> 00:44:31.230
  • - both: Have wrong.
  • 00:44:31.230 --> 00:44:33.000
  • - Frank: Be wrong, do wrong.
  • 00:44:33.000 --> 00:44:34.010
  • All of it comes together.
  • 00:44:34.010 --> 00:44:35.120
  • All of it.
  • 00:44:35.120 --> 00:44:36.080
  • So I said, this book, "Choose
  • 00:44:36.080 --> 00:44:37.110
  • Life and Live," Deuteronomy 30,
  • 00:44:37.110 --> 00:44:39.010
  • I got to exhausting myself
  • 00:44:39.010 --> 00:44:41.250
  • in there.
  • 00:44:41.250 --> 00:44:42.240
  • And I said, "Well, why would he
  • 00:44:42.240 --> 00:44:43.230
  • say, 'I set before you life and
  • 00:44:43.230 --> 00:44:46.200
  • death, good and evil,'
  • 00:44:46.200 --> 00:44:48.170
  • in verse 15?"
  • 00:44:48.170 --> 00:44:49.250
  • And I said, "Life and death,
  • 00:44:49.250 --> 00:44:50.270
  • good and evil, okay.
  • 00:44:50.270 --> 00:44:52.010
  • If I was gonna pair those up,
  • 00:44:52.010 --> 00:44:53.180
  • death with evil, because I
  • 00:44:55.230 --> 00:44:57.150
  • wouldn't pair life with evil and
  • 00:44:57.150 --> 00:44:59.210
  • death with good 'cause I don't
  • 00:44:59.210 --> 00:45:01.240
  • see no good about it, okay?"
  • 00:45:01.240 --> 00:45:03.070
  • So then over 19, verse 19,
  • 00:45:03.070 --> 00:45:04.260
  • Deuteronomy 30, he says,
  • 00:45:04.260 --> 00:45:06.020
  • "I've set before you blessing
  • 00:45:06.020 --> 00:45:08.040
  • and cursing--life and death,
  • 00:45:08.040 --> 00:45:09.190
  • blessing and cursing."
  • 00:45:09.190 --> 00:45:10.130
  • So I said, "Life, blessing;
  • 00:45:10.130 --> 00:45:12.000
  • death, cursing."
  • 00:45:12.000 --> 00:45:13.090
  • So you get to pair them up and
  • 00:45:13.090 --> 00:45:14.100
  • on the life side is good and
  • 00:45:14.100 --> 00:45:15.260
  • blessing.
  • 00:45:15.260 --> 00:45:17.130
  • On the death side is cursing and
  • 00:45:17.130 --> 00:45:19.110
  • evil.
  • 00:45:19.110 --> 00:45:21.080
  • So he says, "Choose you
  • 00:45:21.080 --> 00:45:21.280
  • therefore."
  • 00:45:21.280 --> 00:45:23.090
  • - Ron: My goodness.
  • 00:45:23.090 --> 00:45:24.230
  • - Frank: Choose you therefore.
  • 00:45:24.230 --> 00:45:25.160
  • I said, "That is a powerful
  • 00:45:25.160 --> 00:45:26.180
  • statement and thrust in choose."
  • 00:45:26.180 --> 00:45:29.080
  • See, when you were going through
  • 00:45:29.080 --> 00:45:30.190
  • what you were going through, you
  • 00:45:30.190 --> 00:45:31.180
  • could have chose to say, "Well,
  • 00:45:31.180 --> 00:45:34.080
  • you know, well, I mean, you
  • 00:45:34.080 --> 00:45:35.030
  • know, since they're telling me
  • 00:45:35.030 --> 00:45:35.280
  • all this stuff, you know, then
  • 00:45:35.280 --> 00:45:37.180
  • never mind what it says in
  • 00:45:37.180 --> 00:45:40.050
  • 1 Peter 2:24, 'By his stripes we
  • 00:45:40.050 --> 00:45:42.000
  • were healed,' Isaiah 53 and 5,
  • 00:45:42.000 --> 00:45:43.270
  • 'With his stripes we are
  • 00:45:43.270 --> 00:45:44.180
  • healed.'
  • 00:45:44.180 --> 00:45:45.170
  • Never mind what it says about
  • 00:45:45.170 --> 00:45:46.110
  • Matthew 8:17, 'He took our
  • 00:45:46.110 --> 00:45:47.170
  • infirmities and bare our
  • 00:45:47.170 --> 00:45:48.130
  • sicknesses.'
  • 00:45:48.130 --> 00:45:49.070
  • Never mind about what it says
  • 00:45:49.070 --> 00:45:50.020
  • in, I think, Exodus 15:26, 'He's
  • 00:45:50.020 --> 00:45:51.250
  • the Lord God, the Healer of us.'
  • 00:45:51.250 --> 00:45:53.020
  • Exodus 23:25, 'He's the Lord
  • 00:45:53.020 --> 00:45:53.290
  • God, in the midst of us."
  • 00:45:53.290 --> 00:45:55.280
  • Never mind all those verses.
  • 00:45:55.280 --> 00:45:57.030
  • Never mind Psalm 103, 'Healer of
  • 00:45:57.030 --> 00:45:58.070
  • all our diseases,' and Psalm
  • 00:45:58.070 --> 00:45:59.060
  • 107, 'He sent his Word to heal
  • 00:45:59.060 --> 00:46:00.040
  • us.'"
  • 00:46:00.040 --> 00:46:00.190
  • You could have said that.
  • 00:46:00.190 --> 00:46:02.020
  • But you didn't say, "Never
  • 00:46:02.020 --> 00:46:02.290
  • mind."
  • 00:46:02.290 --> 00:46:04.010
  • You knew too much and you
  • 00:46:04.010 --> 00:46:06.060
  • believed too much, you see?
  • 00:46:06.060 --> 00:46:08.200
  • So you took the position
  • 00:46:08.200 --> 00:46:09.290
  • and chose.
  • 00:46:09.290 --> 00:46:11.180
  • You chose, "Well, whatever I got
  • 00:46:11.180 --> 00:46:12.120
  • to do in order to choose life,
  • 00:46:12.120 --> 00:46:14.270
  • I'm choosing life."
  • 00:46:14.270 --> 00:46:16.100
  • - Ron: God so values freedom.
  • 00:46:18.140 --> 00:46:21.140
  • - Frank: Yes, he does.
  • 00:46:21.140 --> 00:46:22.020
  • - Ron: Watch now.
  • 00:46:22.020 --> 00:46:23.000
  • That he gives us
  • 00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:24.200
  • the opportunity to choose.
  • 00:46:24.270 --> 00:46:27.270
  • That's how much he values
  • 00:46:27.270 --> 00:46:30.260
  • our freedom.
  • 00:46:30.260 --> 00:46:31.250
  • He's not gonna make us choose.
  • 00:46:31.250 --> 00:46:33.120
  • - Frank: No, he's not gonna do
  • 00:46:33.120 --> 00:46:34.040
  • it.
  • 00:46:34.040 --> 00:46:34.160
  • - Ron: He isn't gonna make you
  • 00:46:34.160 --> 00:46:35.080
  • speak the Word.
  • 00:46:35.080 --> 00:46:35.290
  • But he's gonna give you the Word
  • 00:46:35.290 --> 00:46:38.000
  • and he's gonna encourage you,
  • 00:46:38.000 --> 00:46:39.200
  • "Choose life."
  • 00:46:39.200 --> 00:46:40.250
  • - Frank: You gotta choose life.
  • 00:46:40.250 --> 00:46:41.170
  • You gotta make the choice.
  • 00:46:41.170 --> 00:46:42.260
  • And see, what happens here, you
  • 00:46:42.260 --> 00:46:44.100
  • know, he gets real, real sticky
  • 00:46:44.100 --> 00:46:45.220
  • because a lot of times when fear
  • 00:46:45.220 --> 00:46:48.150
  • sets in, we automatically begin
  • 00:46:49.070 --> 00:46:52.070
  • to regress over to choosing
  • 00:46:52.070 --> 00:46:53.250
  • the death.
  • 00:46:53.250 --> 00:46:55.110
  • And we begin to justify it as
  • 00:46:55.110 --> 00:46:56.230
  • being easier.
  • 00:46:56.230 --> 00:46:58.160
  • Well, then, Jesus begins to talk
  • 00:46:58.160 --> 00:47:00.210
  • in John 8:51.
  • 00:47:00.210 --> 00:47:01.280
  • He says, you know, "If any man
  • 00:47:01.280 --> 00:47:03.170
  • keeps my sayings."
  • 00:47:03.170 --> 00:47:04.280
  • The Amplified says, "If he keeps
  • 00:47:04.280 --> 00:47:06.050
  • my sayings and hearkens to my
  • 00:47:06.050 --> 00:47:07.100
  • teachings and walks in
  • 00:47:07.100 --> 00:47:08.240
  • everything that I teach, he will
  • 00:47:08.240 --> 00:47:10.150
  • in no wise ever taste, see, or
  • 00:47:10.150 --> 00:47:11.110
  • experience death."
  • 00:47:11.110 --> 00:47:12.140
  • That gets really strong there,
  • 00:47:12.140 --> 00:47:13.260
  • you see?
  • 00:47:13.260 --> 00:47:14.170
  • But what happens is the illusion
  • 00:47:14.170 --> 00:47:16.000
  • comes from the devil when he
  • 00:47:16.000 --> 00:47:17.210
  • begins to tell your mind that he
  • 00:47:17.210 --> 00:47:19.040
  • doesn't mean that literally.
  • 00:47:19.040 --> 00:47:20.220
  • Everybody got to die one day.
  • 00:47:20.220 --> 00:47:22.130
  • Well, where's that--no, wait a
  • 00:47:22.130 --> 00:47:23.290
  • minute, now, where'd you get
  • 00:47:23.290 --> 00:47:24.220
  • that from?
  • 00:47:24.220 --> 00:47:25.110
  • I mean, that's, you know, that's
  • 00:47:25.110 --> 00:47:26.040
  • not necessarily true.
  • 00:47:26.040 --> 00:47:27.010
  • 'Cause some of us are gonna be
  • 00:47:27.010 --> 00:47:27.270
  • alive and remain all the way
  • 00:47:27.270 --> 00:47:28.180
  • 'til Jesus comes.
  • 00:47:28.180 --> 00:47:31.010
  • Now, I wanna know who is the
  • 00:47:31.010 --> 00:47:32.080
  • church gonna be that's gonna be
  • 00:47:32.080 --> 00:47:33.270
  • alive, walking around shouting,
  • 00:47:33.270 --> 00:47:35.040
  • praising God, and walking in
  • 00:47:35.040 --> 00:47:36.290
  • divine health and defeating the
  • 00:47:36.290 --> 00:47:38.260
  • enemy when Jesus comes back.
  • 00:47:38.260 --> 00:47:40.280
  • Everybody's not gonna be asleep.
  • 00:47:40.280 --> 00:47:42.160
  • Everybody's not gonna be under
  • 00:47:42.160 --> 00:47:44.070
  • the ground, you know.
  • 00:47:44.070 --> 00:47:45.140
  • I believe that every day above
  • 00:47:45.140 --> 00:47:47.200
  • the dirt is a good day.
  • 00:47:47.220 --> 00:47:50.220
  • I mean, every day above the dirt
  • 00:47:50.220 --> 00:47:52.060
  • or on the top of the dirt
  • 00:47:52.060 --> 00:47:53.140
  • is a good day.
  • 00:47:53.140 --> 00:47:54.250
  • - Ron: I'm about to dance now.
  • 00:47:54.250 --> 00:47:55.270
  • - Frank: Now, you know, I think
  • 00:47:55.270 --> 00:47:57.040
  • that when you look at
  • 00:47:57.040 --> 00:47:58.290
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:14 through 16,
  • 00:47:58.290 --> 00:48:02.000
  • when it says, "The dead in
  • 00:48:02.000 --> 00:48:03.260
  • Christ shall rise first."
  • 00:48:03.260 --> 00:48:05.170
  • Now, that's one time I don't
  • 00:48:05.170 --> 00:48:07.180
  • mind being second.
  • 00:48:07.180 --> 00:48:09.200
  • If it's okay with you.
  • 00:48:09.200 --> 00:48:10.290
  • I mean, I don't mind being
  • 00:48:10.290 --> 00:48:12.040
  • second all day and all night,
  • 00:48:12.040 --> 00:48:13.270
  • you know, everybody go right
  • 00:48:13.270 --> 00:48:15.060
  • ahead.
  • 00:48:15.060 --> 00:48:16.100
  • I'll politely let you go ahead.
  • 00:48:16.100 --> 00:48:17.180
  • I'll wait.
  • 00:48:17.180 --> 00:48:18.210
  • - Ron: Long as I know I'm
  • 00:48:18.210 --> 00:48:19.290
  • going.
  • 00:48:19.290 --> 00:48:20.190
  • - Frank: Long as I know I'm
  • 00:48:20.190 --> 00:48:21.100
  • going 'cause what, you know, one
  • 00:48:21.100 --> 00:48:22.210
  • way or another I'm going but I'd
  • 00:48:22.210 --> 00:48:24.070
  • rather be above the dirt, if I
  • 00:48:24.070 --> 00:48:25.230
  • have my choice about it.
  • 00:48:25.230 --> 00:48:27.090
  • So I begin to look at this thing
  • 00:48:27.090 --> 00:48:28.280
  • deep and said, "Well, you know,
  • 00:48:28.280 --> 00:48:30.090
  • what--"
  • 00:48:30.090 --> 00:48:31.020
  • - Ron: Don't y'all be sitting
  • 00:48:31.020 --> 00:48:31.230
  • out there like you wouldn't
  • 00:48:31.230 --> 00:48:32.150
  • choose above the dirt.
  • 00:48:32.150 --> 00:48:33.250
  • - Frank: I asked the church one
  • 00:48:33.250 --> 00:48:36.150
  • day, I said, "Okay," I said, "if
  • 00:48:36.150 --> 00:48:38.010
  • you don't wanna really get
  • 00:48:38.010 --> 00:48:38.280
  • involved in what I'm telling you
  • 00:48:38.280 --> 00:48:39.280
  • today or teaching you, let me
  • 00:48:39.280 --> 00:48:41.080
  • ask you a question.
  • 00:48:41.080 --> 00:48:42.240
  • How many of y'all wanna die
  • 00:48:42.240 --> 00:48:43.180
  • right now?
  • 00:48:43.180 --> 00:48:44.100
  • Come on up here and lay on
  • 00:48:44.100 --> 00:48:45.010
  • altar."
  • 00:48:45.010 --> 00:48:46.040
  • Didn't nobody budge.
  • 00:48:46.040 --> 00:48:47.130
  • Everybody wanted to hang long as
  • 00:48:47.130 --> 00:48:48.210
  • they can.
  • 00:48:48.210 --> 00:48:49.110
  • Everybody wanted to stay here,
  • 00:48:49.110 --> 00:48:50.290
  • you see?
  • 00:48:50.290 --> 00:48:51.200
  • And then I began to dig, Pastor
  • 00:48:51.200 --> 00:48:52.160
  • Ron, and I said, "You know, I
  • 00:48:52.160 --> 00:48:53.160
  • gotta dig this thing out.
  • 00:48:53.160 --> 00:48:55.010
  • And I gotta really research this
  • 00:48:55.010 --> 00:48:56.040
  • thing."
  • 00:48:56.040 --> 00:48:56.230
  • and I began to find so many
  • 00:48:56.230 --> 00:48:57.230
  • things, like Psalm 49 and verse
  • 00:48:57.230 --> 00:48:59.150
  • 15 says, "I have delivered you
  • 00:48:59.150 --> 00:49:01.090
  • from the grave."
  • 00:49:01.090 --> 00:49:02.290
  • Psalm 56:13 says, "I have
  • 00:49:02.290 --> 00:49:04.290
  • delivered you from death that
  • 00:49:04.290 --> 00:49:06.140
  • you can walk in the light of
  • 00:49:06.140 --> 00:49:07.150
  • the living."
  • 00:49:07.150 --> 00:49:09.120
  • Psalm 116 and 8, "I have
  • 00:49:09.120 --> 00:49:11.050
  • delivered you from death."
  • 00:49:11.050 --> 00:49:12.260
  • Hosea 13 and 14 says, "I have
  • 00:49:12.260 --> 00:49:14.220
  • destroyed the grave for you
  • 00:49:14.220 --> 00:49:17.010
  • and I have delivered you from
  • 00:49:17.010 --> 00:49:18.150
  • the grave and redeemed you
  • 00:49:18.150 --> 00:49:19.230
  • from death."
  • 00:49:19.230 --> 00:49:20.230
  • I began to read.
  • 00:49:20.230 --> 00:49:21.270
  • I said, "You know, these verses
  • 00:49:21.270 --> 00:49:22.270
  • have got to be true.
  • 00:49:22.270 --> 00:49:24.210
  • So it looks like there's a lot
  • 00:49:24.210 --> 00:49:25.260
  • of writing and a lot of
  • 00:49:25.260 --> 00:49:27.140
  • Scripture that talks about
  • 00:49:27.140 --> 00:49:29.090
  • staying alive, which means, in
  • 00:49:29.090 --> 00:49:31.080
  • my opinion, if we can believe
  • 00:49:31.080 --> 00:49:33.290
  • that, somebody will," okay?
  • 00:49:33.290 --> 00:49:36.150
  • You've already overcome death
  • 00:49:36.160 --> 00:49:39.160
  • yourself.
  • 00:49:39.160 --> 00:49:40.110
  • - Ron: Yes, sir.
  • 00:49:40.110 --> 00:49:41.200
  • - Frank: I see a new
  • 00:49:41.200 --> 00:49:44.180
  • anointing--
  • 00:49:44.180 --> 00:49:45.230
  • - Ron: [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:49:45.230 --> 00:49:46.220
  • - Frank: I see an anointing now
  • 00:49:46.220 --> 00:49:48.080
  • that has come on your life.
  • 00:49:48.080 --> 00:49:50.030
  • You're already a tremendous
  • 00:49:50.030 --> 00:49:51.100
  • preacher.
  • 00:49:51.100 --> 00:49:52.270
  • You could preach to black folk,
  • 00:49:52.270 --> 00:49:54.120
  • blue folk, pink folk, polka dot
  • 00:49:54.120 --> 00:49:56.000
  • folk, anybody, because you're so
  • 00:49:56.000 --> 00:49:57.150
  • anointed.
  • 00:49:57.150 --> 00:49:58.070
  • Seriously, I'm not just saying
  • 00:49:58.070 --> 00:49:58.290
  • this to try to, you know, pat
  • 00:49:58.290 --> 00:50:00.100
  • you on the back but because I've
  • 00:50:00.100 --> 00:50:01.200
  • been watching you for years,
  • 00:50:01.200 --> 00:50:02.250
  • listening to you.
  • 00:50:02.250 --> 00:50:03.220
  • You've been at our church and
  • 00:50:03.220 --> 00:50:04.180
  • preached so you can convince
  • 00:50:04.180 --> 00:50:05.160
  • anybody of anything.
  • 00:50:05.160 --> 00:50:07.190
  • God's shifting you now to
  • 00:50:07.190 --> 00:50:09.070
  • another level where you're gonna
  • 00:50:09.070 --> 00:50:11.020
  • convince folk that they can live
  • 00:50:11.020 --> 00:50:13.080
  • and not die.
  • 00:50:13.080 --> 00:50:14.280
  • And your experience, you know,
  • 00:50:14.280 --> 00:50:16.210
  • is gonna make it even stronger.
  • 00:50:16.210 --> 00:50:19.010
  • There's somebody right now,
  • 00:50:19.010 --> 00:50:21.120
  • can--
  • 00:50:21.120 --> 00:50:22.240
  • - Ron: Yeah, I'm gonna agree
  • 00:50:22.240 --> 00:50:24.260
  • with you and you speak that life
  • 00:50:24.260 --> 00:50:25.190
  • to them right now.
  • 00:50:25.190 --> 00:50:26.100
  • - Frank: There's someone right

  • now, you've been--you've run
  • 00:50:27.020 --> 00:50:27.230
  • into some situations where the
  • 00:50:27.230 --> 00:50:28.170
  • devil's been pounding you in
  • 00:50:28.170 --> 00:50:30.060
  • your mind, telling you that
  • 00:50:30.060 --> 00:50:31.210
  • you've got to die,
  • 00:50:31.210 --> 00:50:32.250
  • that you won't make it.
  • 00:50:32.250 --> 00:50:34.030
  • And you're listening tonight on
  • 00:50:34.030 --> 00:50:35.030
  • purpose because God wanted you
  • 00:50:35.030 --> 00:50:37.150
  • to know that you don't have to
  • 00:50:37.150 --> 00:50:39.020
  • die, that you can live.
  • 00:50:39.020 --> 00:50:41.030
  • Listen, listen.
  • 00:50:41.030 --> 00:50:42.030
  • Proverbs 12:28 says, "In the way

  • of righteousness is life, and in
  • 00:50:44.100 --> 00:50:45.230
  • the pathway thereof there is no
  • 00:50:45.230 --> 00:50:47.000
  • death."
  • 00:50:47.000 --> 00:50:48.050
  • Proverbs 10 and 2 says,
  • 00:50:48.050 --> 00:50:49.260
  • "Treasures of wickedness profit
  • 00:50:49.260 --> 00:50:50.230
  • nothing, but righteousness
  • 00:50:50.230 --> 00:50:51.290
  • delivers from death."
  • 00:50:51.290 --> 00:50:53.130
  • Proverbs 11 and 4 says, "Riches

  • profit not the day of wrath,

  • but righteousness delivers

  • 00:50:57.210 --> 00:50:58.140

  • 01:00:01.140 --> 01:00:02.220
  • harvest to send it into your
  • 01:00:02.220 --> 01:00:04.070
  • church.
  • 01:00:04.070 --> 01:00:05.060
  • I've already prepared the
  • 01:00:05.060 --> 01:00:06.060
  • harvest but I have no place to
  • 01:00:06.060 --> 01:00:08.020
  • send them because there's no
  • 01:00:08.020 --> 01:00:10.040
  • laborers.
  • 01:00:10.040 --> 01:00:11.160
  • And the few that are working are
  • 01:00:11.160 --> 01:00:12.220
  • just few."
  • 01:00:12.220 --> 01:00:14.280
  • So I began to ask God, "God will
  • 01:00:14.280 --> 01:00:16.280
  • reveal--talk to me," and God
  • 01:00:16.280 --> 01:00:18.110
  • said, "Open the Scriptures to
  • 01:00:18.110 --> 01:00:20.270
  • Matthews, the 9th chapter."
  • 01:00:20.270 --> 01:00:23.050
  • And as I began to read, even
  • 01:00:23.050 --> 01:00:24.210
  • from verse 1, it was explosive,
  • 01:00:24.210 --> 01:00:26.180
  • Pastor.
  • 01:00:26.180 --> 01:00:27.040
  • It says this, "So he got into
  • 01:00:27.040 --> 01:00:28.100
  • the boat and crossed over and
  • 01:00:28.100 --> 01:00:30.000
  • came into his own city."
  • 01:00:30.000 --> 01:00:32.160
  • His own city, not somebody
  • 01:00:32.160 --> 01:00:33.230
  • else's city.
  • 01:00:33.230 --> 01:00:34.270
  • "Then behold, they brought to
  • 01:00:34.270 --> 01:00:36.090
  • him a paralyzed man lying on a
  • 01:00:36.090 --> 01:00:38.240
  • bed.
  • 01:00:38.240 --> 01:00:40.080
  • And when Jesus saw their faith,"
  • 01:00:40.080 --> 01:00:43.050
  • not the paralyzed man's faith,
  • 01:00:43.050 --> 01:00:46.030
  • the laborers' faith.
  • 01:00:46.030 --> 01:00:48.120
  • The Bible says, "When Jesus saw
  • 01:00:48.120 --> 01:00:50.030
  • their faith,
  • 01:00:50.030 --> 01:00:51.140
  • he said to the paralyzed man,
  • 01:00:51.140 --> 01:00:53.060
  • 'Son, be of good cheer.
  • 01:00:53.060 --> 01:00:55.130
  • Your sins are forgiven you.'"
  • 01:00:55.130 --> 01:00:57.190
  • And the Lord said to me, "Son,
  • 01:00:57.190 --> 01:00:59.110
  • if the laborers would step it
  • 01:00:59.110 --> 01:01:00.290
  • up, I would begin to heal,
  • 01:01:00.290 --> 01:01:02.290
  • I would begin to do miracles,
  • 01:01:02.290 --> 01:01:05.040
  • lives will be transformed by
  • 01:01:05.040 --> 01:01:07.200
  • the power of the Holy Ghost.
  • 01:01:07.200 --> 01:01:10.010
  • But it's time to do
  • 01:01:10.010 --> 01:01:11.140
  • the Great Commission and not
  • 01:01:11.140 --> 01:01:13.020
  • the Great Omission."
  • 01:01:13.020 --> 01:01:14.230
  • We preach about a lot of things.
  • 01:01:14.230 --> 01:01:16.130
  • We talk about a lot of things
  • 01:01:16.130 --> 01:01:17.210
  • but who's evangelizing?
  • 01:01:17.210 --> 01:01:19.150
  • Who's going out there to knock
  • 01:01:19.150 --> 01:01:20.190
  • on the doors?
  • 01:01:20.190 --> 01:01:21.290
  • Who's going after church
  • 01:01:21.290 --> 01:01:23.120
  • to shake some hands?
  • 01:01:23.120 --> 01:01:25.120
  • Who's going to look at somebody
  • 01:01:25.120 --> 01:01:26.250
  • and tell 'em, "Demon, come out,
  • 01:01:26.250 --> 01:01:28.160
  • in the name of Jesus"?
  • 01:01:28.160 --> 01:01:30.040
  • I tell you that when you become
  • 01:01:30.040 --> 01:01:31.170
  • a laborer, you become a target.
  • 01:01:31.170 --> 01:01:34.070
  • And we have many people out
  • 01:01:34.070 --> 01:01:35.200
  • there that are working and are
  • 01:01:35.200 --> 01:01:37.090
  • getting tired because you're a
  • 01:01:37.090 --> 01:01:39.090
  • laborer.
  • 01:01:39.090 --> 01:01:40.070
  • The devil has one job concerning
  • 01:01:40.070 --> 01:01:41.270
  • you.
  • 01:01:41.270 --> 01:01:42.270
  • It's to get you out and to get
  • 01:01:42.270 --> 01:01:44.110
  • you to stop working.
  • 01:01:44.110 --> 01:01:46.060
  • Because somebody that's not
  • 01:01:46.060 --> 01:01:47.180
  • working is criticizing you, is
  • 01:01:47.180 --> 01:01:50.020
  • judging you, is telling you to
  • 01:01:50.020 --> 01:01:52.040
  • sit down.
  • 01:01:52.040 --> 01:01:53.090
  • But I'm here to tell you that
  • 01:01:53.090 --> 01:01:55.010
  • God is about to do some miracles
  • 01:01:55.010 --> 01:01:57.050
  • through your life.
  • 01:01:57.050 --> 01:01:58.240
  • God is about to reveal his
  • 01:01:58.240 --> 01:02:00.190
  • power, his anointing, and it's
  • 01:02:00.190 --> 01:02:03.130
  • gonna happen through you.
  • 01:02:03.130 --> 01:02:05.090
  • I wish somebody would slap
  • 01:02:05.090 --> 01:02:06.130
  • somebody and say, "It's your
  • 01:02:06.130 --> 01:02:07.130
  • turn."
  • 01:02:07.130 --> 01:02:08.200
  • Just tell somebody, "It's your
  • 01:02:08.200 --> 01:02:09.230
  • turn."
  • 01:02:09.230 --> 01:02:11.030
  • Just, ahh, it's your turn,
  • 01:02:11.030 --> 01:02:13.020
  • hallelujah.
  • 01:02:13.020 --> 01:02:13.270
  • I tell you that as I began to
  • 01:02:13.270 --> 01:02:15.280
  • read, it says this.
  • 01:02:15.280 --> 01:02:17.070
  • It says that the tax collectors
  • 01:02:17.070 --> 01:02:19.090
  • and the sinners went after
  • 01:02:19.090 --> 01:02:21.120
  • Jesus.
  • 01:02:21.120 --> 01:02:22.150
  • As a matter of fact, the Bible
  • 01:02:22.150 --> 01:02:23.130
  • says that they sat down and they
  • 01:02:23.130 --> 01:02:24.290
  • ate with Jesus.
  • 01:02:24.290 --> 01:02:26.170
  • But here go the Pharisees, here
  • 01:02:26.170 --> 01:02:28.140
  • goes somebody that's doing
  • 01:02:28.140 --> 01:02:30.280
  • nothing.
  • 01:02:30.280 --> 01:02:31.210
  • The Bible says that they,
  • 01:02:31.210 --> 01:02:33.290
  • instead of looking at the
  • 01:02:33.290 --> 01:02:34.290
  • miracle, instead of saying,
  • 01:02:34.290 --> 01:02:36.210
  • "Man, a paralyzed man has been
  • 01:02:36.210 --> 01:02:38.210
  • healed, his sins have been
  • 01:02:38.210 --> 01:02:40.170
  • forgiven," somebody is looking
  • 01:02:40.170 --> 01:02:42.270
  • for a reason to criticize.
  • 01:02:42.270 --> 01:02:45.210
  • But I praise God that Jesus paid
  • 01:02:45.210 --> 01:02:48.170
  • them no mind 'cause he knew what
  • 01:02:48.170 --> 01:02:50.070
  • they were thinking.
  • 01:02:50.070 --> 01:02:51.090
  • So he sat with the tax
  • 01:02:51.090 --> 01:02:52.120
  • collectors and he sat with
  • 01:02:52.120 --> 01:02:53.250
  • the sinners.
  • 01:02:53.250 --> 01:02:55.070
  • But catch this.
  • 01:02:55.070 --> 01:02:56.060
  • I want you to catch this.
  • 01:02:56.060 --> 01:02:57.100
  • Something happened here.
  • 01:02:57.100 --> 01:02:59.050
  • The Pharisees this time, did not
  • 01:02:59.050 --> 01:03:00.180
  • go to Jesus.
  • 01:03:00.180 --> 01:03:02.170
  • They went to the disciples to
  • 01:03:02.170 --> 01:03:05.060
  • ask the question, "Why does he
  • 01:03:05.060 --> 01:03:07.040
  • sit down with sinners and tax
  • 01:03:07.040 --> 01:03:09.220
  • collectors?
  • 01:03:09.220 --> 01:03:11.060
  • Why does he do that?"
  • 01:03:11.060 --> 01:03:13.010
  • See, the devil wants to put
  • 01:03:13.010 --> 01:03:14.170
  • doubt in those that are
  • 01:03:14.170 --> 01:03:16.110
  • laboring.
  • 01:03:16.110 --> 01:03:17.170
  • You better know the man you're
  • 01:03:17.170 --> 01:03:18.280
  • following and you better know
  • 01:03:18.280 --> 01:03:20.200
  • the calling over his life and
  • 01:03:20.200 --> 01:03:22.280
  • don't let anybody that's trying
  • 01:03:22.280 --> 01:03:25.020
  • to put a question in your spirit
  • 01:03:25.020 --> 01:03:27.030
  • to stop you from doing what God
  • 01:03:27.050 --> 01:03:30.050
  • has called you to do because the
  • 01:03:30.050 --> 01:03:32.060
  • devil wants to stop the few, the
  • 01:03:32.060 --> 01:03:34.260
  • few, that are laboring.
  • 01:03:34.260 --> 01:03:37.200
  • Praise God.
  • 01:03:37.200 --> 01:03:38.240
  • But God is raising some people
  • 01:03:38.240 --> 01:03:40.130
  • that are saying, "Look, devil,
  • 01:03:40.130 --> 01:03:42.090
  • I'm gonna face it.
  • 01:03:42.090 --> 01:03:43.230
  • I'm gonna fight it.
  • 01:03:43.230 --> 01:03:45.240
  • And I'm gonna defeat it, hah!"
  • 01:03:45.240 --> 01:03:47.250
  • Somebody has gotta stand up in
  • 01:03:47.250 --> 01:03:50.000
  • authority and tell the devil,
  • 01:03:50.000 --> 01:03:52.060
  • "Get out 'cause I'm stepping up.
  • 01:03:52.060 --> 01:03:54.040
  • Get out 'cause I'm stepping up
  • 01:03:54.040 --> 01:03:56.170
  • and I'm doing what God said I
  • 01:03:56.170 --> 01:03:59.060
  • was called to do.
  • 01:03:59.060 --> 01:04:00.200
  • Hallelujah."
  • 01:04:00.200 --> 01:04:01.150
  • So I praise God that when Jesus
  • 01:04:01.150 --> 01:04:04.030
  • just got that inkling like the
  • 01:04:04.030 --> 01:04:06.080
  • anointing will do to these great
  • 01:04:06.080 --> 01:04:07.240
  • men of God, and I praise God
  • 01:04:07.240 --> 01:04:09.100
  • that I'm sitting here with my
  • 01:04:09.100 --> 01:04:10.180
  • spiritual daddy, a man that has
  • 01:04:10.180 --> 01:04:12.180
  • taught me well, praise God, how
  • 01:04:12.180 --> 01:04:14.250
  • to fight devils and tell devils,
  • 01:04:14.250 --> 01:04:17.100
  • "Get out of the way."
  • 01:04:17.100 --> 01:04:18.260
  • Praise the Lord!
  • 01:04:18.260 --> 01:04:19.250
  • Jesus answered them.
  • 01:04:19.250 --> 01:04:22.010
  • See, he knew that they were
  • 01:04:22.010 --> 01:04:23.290
  • after the laborers.
  • 01:04:23.290 --> 01:04:26.000
  • And I tell you that if God has
  • 01:04:26.000 --> 01:04:28.070
  • called you to do something in
  • 01:04:28.070 --> 01:04:29.160
  • the kingdom, it's time for you
  • 01:04:29.160 --> 01:04:31.080
  • to get back up.
  • 01:04:31.080 --> 01:04:32.160
  • If you were ushering,
  • 01:04:32.160 --> 01:04:33.220
  • then go back to ushering.
  • 01:04:33.220 --> 01:04:35.150
  • If you were serving,
  • 01:04:35.150 --> 01:04:36.240
  • get back to serving.
  • 01:04:36.240 --> 01:04:38.000
  • Jesus said himself, "I did not
  • 01:04:38.000 --> 01:04:39.160
  • come to be served, but to
  • 01:04:39.160 --> 01:04:41.130
  • serve."
  • 01:04:41.130 --> 01:04:42.200
  • It's about time we start doing
  • 01:04:42.200 --> 01:04:44.090
  • what God said, that we have been
  • 01:04:44.090 --> 01:04:46.050
  • ordained to do, and that's to
  • 01:04:46.050 --> 01:04:48.160
  • serve his people.
  • 01:04:48.160 --> 01:04:50.030
  • Praise God.
  • 01:04:50.030 --> 01:04:50.290
  • So as I began to read this and
  • 01:04:50.290 --> 01:04:53.060
  • study this and asking God, "God,
  • 01:04:53.060 --> 01:04:54.270
  • give me more revelation,"
  • 01:04:54.270 --> 01:04:56.000
  • he said this.
  • 01:04:56.000 --> 01:04:57.160
  • Look, the harvest is ready.
  • 01:04:57.160 --> 01:04:59.190
  • That means that God has already
  • 01:04:59.190 --> 01:05:01.030
  • prepared the people that are
  • 01:05:01.030 --> 01:05:02.030
  • gonna come into your church.
  • 01:05:02.030 --> 01:05:03.200
  • God has already prepared the
  • 01:05:03.200 --> 01:05:04.250
  • people that are out there lost,
  • 01:05:04.250 --> 01:05:06.200
  • broken, to find a home.
  • 01:05:06.200 --> 01:05:08.200
  • They're ready.
  • 01:05:08.200 --> 01:05:09.160
  • The harvest is ready.
  • 01:05:09.160 --> 01:05:11.060
  • The problem is that God said
  • 01:05:11.060 --> 01:05:12.240
  • this to me, "Son, how can I send
  • 01:05:12.240 --> 01:05:14.280
  • them to you when you already
  • 01:05:14.280 --> 01:05:16.220
  • have a minimum staff.
  • 01:05:16.220 --> 01:05:19.100
  • The ones that are working are
  • 01:05:19.100 --> 01:05:20.110
  • the same ones that are always
  • 01:05:20.110 --> 01:05:21.180
  • working.
  • 01:05:21.180 --> 01:05:22.170
  • People want a title but they
  • 01:05:22.170 --> 01:05:24.180
  • don't want a towel.
  • 01:05:24.180 --> 01:05:26.210
  • People want a position but they
  • 01:05:27.080 --> 01:05:30.080
  • don't wanna move where God is
  • 01:05:30.080 --> 01:05:31.260
  • telling them to move.
  • 01:05:31.260 --> 01:05:33.040
  • So how am I gonna send--you
  • 01:05:33.040 --> 01:05:34.120
  • can't handle 100.
  • 01:05:34.120 --> 01:05:36.100
  • How you gonna handle 200, 300,
  • 01:05:36.100 --> 01:05:38.210
  • or 1.000?
  • 01:05:38.210 --> 01:05:40.160
  • That means somebody has to step
  • 01:05:40.160 --> 01:05:42.140
  • up.
  • 01:05:42.140 --> 01:05:43.170
  • That means that somebody has got
  • 01:05:43.170 --> 01:05:45.110
  • to break the chains loose and
  • 01:05:45.110 --> 01:05:47.010
  • say, "I'm gonna serve in the
  • 01:05:47.010 --> 01:05:49.050
  • harvest," because the Bible says
  • 01:05:49.050 --> 01:05:50.290
  • this, "Pray to the Lord of the
  • 01:05:50.290 --> 01:05:53.130
  • harvest that he will send forth
  • 01:05:53.130 --> 01:05:55.260
  • laborers."
  • 01:05:55.260 --> 01:05:56.270
  • Well, the key is this.
  • 01:05:56.270 --> 01:05:58.070
  • I want to be--I don't know about
  • 01:05:58.070 --> 01:05:59.210
  • you.
  • 01:05:59.210 --> 01:06:00.200
  • I want to be the answer to that
  • 01:06:00.200 --> 01:06:02.290
  • prayer.
  • 01:06:02.290 --> 01:06:04.010
  • If Jesus is praying for God to
  • 01:06:04.010 --> 01:06:06.130
  • send forth laborers, I want to
  • 01:06:06.130 --> 01:06:08.270
  • be one of those that's laboring.
  • 01:06:09.000 --> 01:06:12.000
  • See, because God can't lie.
  • 01:06:12.000 --> 01:06:13.260
  • God cannot lie.
  • 01:06:13.260 --> 01:06:16.080
  • On that day, he's gonna say,
  • 01:06:16.080 --> 01:06:17.180
  • "Come ye, faithful servant."
  • 01:06:18.160 --> 01:06:21.160
  • The problem is this.
  • 01:06:21.160 --> 01:06:22.260
  • Some people ain't serve nobody
  • 01:06:22.260 --> 01:06:24.000
  • but themselves.
  • 01:06:24.000 --> 01:06:26.110
  • We need to get somebody that
  • 01:06:26.110 --> 01:06:29.060
  • goes back into evangelism.
  • 01:06:29.060 --> 01:06:31.060
  • We need somebody that goes back
  • 01:06:31.060 --> 01:06:33.070
  • to preaching the authentic Word
  • 01:06:33.070 --> 01:06:35.150
  • of God.
  • 01:06:35.150 --> 01:06:36.120
  • We need somebody that will
  • 01:06:36.120 --> 01:06:37.170
  • preach the cross, somebody that
  • 01:06:37.170 --> 01:06:40.040
  • will preach the Resurrection,
  • 01:06:40.040 --> 01:06:42.060
  • because you've got to understand
  • 01:06:42.060 --> 01:06:44.020
  • that what happened at the cross
  • 01:06:44.020 --> 01:06:46.000
  • when Jesus was already dead,
  • 01:06:46.000 --> 01:06:47.280
  • was a set-up to the devil.
  • 01:06:47.280 --> 01:06:50.050
  • See, the devil, when he saw
  • 01:06:50.050 --> 01:06:52.110
  • Jesus had given up the Ghost, he
  • 01:06:52.110 --> 01:06:54.280
  • failed to realize that the Bible
  • 01:06:54.280 --> 01:06:56.260
  • says that here on the earth what
  • 01:06:56.260 --> 01:06:58.080
  • identifies God is the Spirit,
  • 01:06:58.080 --> 01:07:01.030
  • the water, and the blood.
  • 01:07:01.030 --> 01:07:03.190
  • So the Spirit goes back to God.
  • 01:07:03.190 --> 01:07:05.270
  • A soldier figures, "Well, I'm
  • 01:07:05.270 --> 01:07:07.090
  • not gonna break his legs.
  • 01:07:07.090 --> 01:07:08.160
  • Let me put a spear on his side."
  • 01:07:08.160 --> 01:07:10.220
  • What came out of his side was,
  • 01:07:10.220 --> 01:07:12.000
  • what?
  • 01:07:12.000 --> 01:07:12.220
  • Water and blood.
  • 01:07:12.220 --> 01:07:14.140
  • If there's water and blood,
  • 01:07:14.140 --> 01:07:16.150
  • there has to be a birthing.
  • 01:07:16.150 --> 01:07:18.190
  • You've got to understand that
  • 01:07:18.190 --> 01:07:20.060
  • Jesus set him up to say, "I will
  • 01:07:20.060 --> 01:07:22.190
  • come back again," because the
  • 01:07:22.280 --> 01:07:25.280
  • water and the blood identifies a
  • 01:07:25.280 --> 01:07:27.230
  • birthing.
  • 01:07:27.230 --> 01:07:28.120
  • How do I know this?
  • 01:07:28.120 --> 01:07:29.130
  • When you were in your mother's
  • 01:07:29.130 --> 01:07:30.170
  • womb, all you were was a spirit.
  • 01:07:30.170 --> 01:07:33.160
  • When they put you on that
  • 01:07:33.160 --> 01:07:34.070
  • sonogram, all they saw was a
  • 01:07:34.070 --> 01:07:35.170
  • little dot.
  • 01:07:35.170 --> 01:07:37.030
  • See, it was a spirit with no
  • 01:07:37.030 --> 01:07:38.200
  • flesh.
  • 01:07:38.200 --> 01:07:40.010
  • So the Lord put you in the
  • 01:07:40.010 --> 01:07:41.020
  • incubator in order to put flesh
  • 01:07:41.020 --> 01:07:43.250
  • over your spirit.
  • 01:07:43.250 --> 01:07:46.250
  • But you've got to understand
  • 01:07:46.250 --> 01:07:48.260
  • that when you came--when you
  • 01:07:48.260 --> 01:07:50.150
  • were about to come, the first
  • 01:07:50.150 --> 01:07:52.080
  • thing that opened open was the
  • 01:07:52.080 --> 01:07:55.000
  • water.
  • 01:07:55.000 --> 01:07:55.290
  • Your mother started screaming
  • 01:07:55.290 --> 01:07:57.290
  • and say, "Hey!
  • 01:07:57.290 --> 01:07:58.220
  • The water busted.
  • 01:07:58.220 --> 01:08:00.120
  • Hey!
  • 01:08:00.120 --> 01:08:01.040
  • The water broke."
  • 01:08:01.040 --> 01:08:02.210
  • But you've got to understand
  • 01:08:02.210 --> 01:08:04.250
  • that you were invisible to the
  • 01:08:04.250 --> 01:08:06.180
  • devil.
  • 01:08:06.180 --> 01:08:07.120
  • Why?
  • 01:08:07.120 --> 01:08:07.290
  • You came from that womb covered
  • 01:08:07.290 --> 01:08:09.280
  • in blood.
  • 01:08:09.280 --> 01:08:11.140
  • What does that tell me?
  • 01:08:11.140 --> 01:08:13.000
  • You came as the covenant of God
  • 01:08:13.000 --> 01:08:15.110
  • to this earth.
  • 01:08:15.110 --> 01:08:17.070
  • You've got to understand that
  • 01:08:17.070 --> 01:08:18.220
  • you've always been.
  • 01:08:18.220 --> 01:08:20.060
  • You weren't just born.
  • 01:08:20.060 --> 01:08:22.070
  • You've always been.
  • 01:08:22.070 --> 01:08:23.090
  • You were in heaven with God.
  • 01:08:23.090 --> 01:08:25.050
  • God put the spirit in the
  • 01:08:25.050 --> 01:08:26.290
  • mother's womb, put some flesh on
  • 01:08:26.290 --> 01:08:28.190
  • it, covered you in blood, sent
  • 01:08:28.190 --> 01:08:30.250
  • you invisible to this earth to
  • 01:08:30.250 --> 01:08:33.070
  • invade devil territory.
  • 01:08:33.270 --> 01:08:36.270
  • It's about time somebody said,
  • 01:08:36.270 --> 01:08:39.060
  • "I am the covenant of God.
  • 01:08:39.060 --> 01:08:42.060
  • I am his divine covenant on this
  • 01:08:42.060 --> 01:08:45.030
  • earth and I will fulfill the
  • 01:08:45.030 --> 01:08:47.020
  • call and the purpose of God upon
  • 01:08:47.020 --> 01:08:48.260
  • my life."
  • 01:08:48.260 --> 01:08:50.090
  • Hallelujah.
  • 01:08:50.090 --> 01:08:51.070
  • - Ron: Blessed be God presence.
  • 01:08:51.070 --> 01:08:52.230
  • - Ed: Glory.
  • 01:08:52.230 --> 01:08:53.240
  • - Ron: Listen.
  • 01:08:53.240 --> 01:08:54.250
  • I think he can preach a little
  • 01:08:54.250 --> 01:08:56.030
  • bit.
  • 01:08:56.030 --> 01:08:57.130
  • I think he can preach a little
  • 01:08:57.130 --> 01:08:58.280
  • bit.
  • 01:08:58.280 --> 01:09:00.280
  • He does it all the time down at
  • 01:09:00.280 --> 01:09:02.090
  • Christian College Chapel.
  • 01:09:02.090 --> 01:09:03.200
  • I'm here to tell you right now,
  • 01:09:03.200 --> 01:09:05.170
  • revival is there.

  • you're looking for a place to

  • get not only quality education,
  • 01:09:10.280 --> 01:09:12.240
  • but an impartation of that kind
  • 01:09:13.010 --> 01:09:16.010
  • of an anointing, you ought to

  • College School of the Spirit.

  • You said one thing, Pastor, that
  • 01:09:19.270 --> 01:09:21.150
  • I want to emphasize just for a
  • 01:09:21.150 --> 01:09:23.000
  • moment.
  • 01:09:23.000 --> 01:09:24.280
  • I want Harvest Music Live to get
  • 01:09:24.280 --> 01:09:27.020
  • ready.
  • 01:09:27.020 --> 01:09:27.280
  • They're coming with a song that
  • 01:09:27.280 --> 01:09:29.020
  • says, "The Cross, the Blood."
  • 01:09:29.020 --> 01:09:31.070
  • I think that's fitting.
  • 01:09:31.070 --> 01:09:32.200
  • You need to know something
  • 01:09:32.200 --> 01:09:34.110
  • right now.
  • 01:09:34.110 --> 01:09:35.250
  • Jesus is the friend of sinners.

  • - Ed: Yes, he is.
  • 01:09:39.120 --> 01:09:40.180
  • Yes, he is.
  • 01:09:40.180 --> 01:09:41.290

  • and the sinners.
  • 01:09:44.100 --> 01:09:46.220
  • May I tell you tonight that no

  • greater tribute to valor was

  • ever paid over the sinister lips
  • 01:09:51.000 --> 01:09:52.220
  • of malice than this.
  • 01:09:52.220 --> 01:09:55.220
  • He's the sinners' best friend.

  • 01:10:03.100 --> 01:10:05.230
  • Will you do it right now
  • 01:10:05.230 --> 01:10:06.250
  • while they sing?
  • 01:10:06.250 --> 01:10:08.150
  • Will you say, "Jesus,
  • 01:10:08.150 --> 01:10:09.190
  • come into my heart."
  • 01:10:09.190 --> 01:10:11.090
  • Let him do it right now while

  • Harvest Music Live sings,
  • 01:10:13.190 --> 01:10:15.190
  • I am the one who should

  • have died.
  • 01:10:43.270 --> 01:10:46.270
  • He gave it all
  • 01:10:56.160 --> 01:10:59.160
  • God's only Son,
  • 01:11:04.270 --> 01:11:07.270
  • his sacrifice.
  • 01:11:08.200 --> 01:11:11.200
  • Ohh, because of the cross,
  • 01:11:12.150 --> 01:11:15.150

  • I am redeemed,
  • 01:11:22.120 --> 01:11:24.120
  • purchased by love.
  • 01:11:24.120 --> 01:11:26.200
  • Because of the cross,
  • 01:11:26.200 --> 01:11:28.260
  • because of the blood.
  • 01:11:30.050 --> 01:11:33.050
  • Yea, yea, yeah, yeah,

  • Now, he became sin
  • 01:11:49.030 --> 01:11:52.030
  • and took my place.
  • 01:11:54.160 --> 01:11:57.160
  • He left heaven's throne,
  • 01:11:57.230 --> 01:12:00.250
  • amazing grace.
  • 01:12:02.150 --> 01:12:05.150
  • He gave it all
  • 01:12:06.260 --> 01:12:09.260
  • and paid the price.
  • 01:12:11.090 --> 01:12:14.090
  • God's only Son,

  • God's only Son,
  • 01:13:08.100 --> 01:13:11.100
  • it was his sacrifice.

  • O Lord, Pastor Ramirez,
  • 01:17:41.020 --> 01:17:42.030
  • Jesus, I thought I was gonna

  • do a cartwheel.
  • 01:17:43.110 --> 01:17:44.160
  • And he said this and I'm gonna
  • 01:17:44.160 --> 01:17:45.280
  • piggyback off of him because
  • 01:17:45.280 --> 01:17:46.200
  • And he said, "Jesus prayed
  • 01:17:48.220 --> 01:17:50.050
  • that--to the Lord of the
  • 01:17:50.050 --> 01:17:52.150

  • tonight, really, just
  • 01:17:59.050 --> 01:18:00.170
  • in that same vein of the prayer
  • 01:18:00.170 --> 01:18:03.090
  • that Jesus prayed,
  • 01:18:03.090 --> 01:18:04.150
  • we ought to be the answer to it.
  • 01:18:04.150 --> 01:18:06.110
  • Jesus prayed before his death,
  • 01:18:06.110 --> 01:18:08.180
  • "Lord, Father, make them one."
  • 01:18:09.170 --> 01:18:12.170
  • He prayed for his disciples
  • 01:18:12.170 --> 01:18:13.150
  • and for all those
  • 01:18:13.150 --> 01:18:14.180
  • that would believe.
  • 01:18:14.180 --> 01:18:15.280
  • "Make them one as we are one."
  • 01:18:16.040 --> 01:18:19.040
  • Woo!
  • 01:18:19.040 --> 01:18:19.250
  • And then he gave the result
  • 01:18:19.250 --> 01:18:21.090
  • of them being one.
  • 01:18:21.090 --> 01:18:22.190
  • He said, "So that the world may
  • 01:18:22.190 --> 01:18:24.210
  • know that you have sent me
  • 01:18:24.210 --> 01:18:26.240

  • 01:18:28.260 --> 01:18:30.200
  • Woo!
  • 01:18:30.200 --> 01:18:31.090
  • If we are going to impact the
  • 01:18:31.090 --> 01:18:32.130
  • world the way God has called us
  • 01:18:32.130 --> 01:18:33.220
  • to impact this world, we are
  • 01:18:33.220 --> 01:18:35.180
  • going to have to unite as one.
  • 01:18:35.180 --> 01:18:38.100
  • The walls of separation,
  • 01:18:38.100 --> 01:18:40.100
  • hallelujah,
  • 01:18:40.100 --> 01:18:41.090
  • ought not be in the church.
  • 01:18:41.090 --> 01:18:42.210
  • We've got to be the kingdom
  • 01:18:42.210 --> 01:18:43.290
  • people that God has called us
  • 01:18:43.290 --> 01:18:45.030
  • to be.
  • 01:18:45.030 --> 01:18:45.280
  • When we look in the Scriptures,
  • 01:18:45.280 --> 01:18:47.240
  • even on the Day of Pentecost,
  • 01:18:47.240 --> 01:18:49.040
  • the Bible says that they were in
  • 01:18:49.040 --> 01:18:49.280
  • one place, hallelujah.
  • 01:18:49.280 --> 01:18:51.180
  • O Lord, have mercy.
  • 01:18:51.180 --> 01:18:52.220
  • One mind, all in the same place,
  • 01:18:52.220 --> 01:18:54.130
  • hallelujah.
  • 01:18:54.130 --> 01:18:55.190
  • And the anointing, hallelujah,
  • 01:18:55.190 --> 01:18:57.210
  • the power of the Holy Ghost came
  • 01:18:57.210 --> 01:18:59.060
  • through that place.
  • 01:18:59.060 --> 01:19:00.140
  • When they marched around the
  • 01:19:00.140 --> 01:19:01.230
  • walls of Jericho, hallelujah,
  • 01:19:01.230 --> 01:19:03.290
  • the wall that was up to keep
  • 01:19:03.290 --> 01:19:05.060
  • them out, hallelujah, the wall
  • 01:19:05.060 --> 01:19:06.110
  • that was to prevent them from
  • 01:19:06.110 --> 01:19:08.050
  • being where God wanted them to
  • 01:19:08.050 --> 01:19:09.160
  • be, the Bible didn't say that he
  • 01:19:09.160 --> 01:19:11.160
  • shouted or she shouted.
  • 01:19:11.160 --> 01:19:12.230
  • The Bible said, "They shouted."
  • 01:19:12.230 --> 01:19:14.260
  • O Lord, have mercy.
  • 01:19:14.260 --> 01:19:16.010
  • See, something has happened and
  • 01:19:16.010 --> 01:19:17.130
  • it's an epidemic that has been
  • 01:19:17.130 --> 01:19:19.020
  • going on because everybody wants
  • 01:19:19.020 --> 01:19:20.200
  • to be great and everybody can be
  • 01:19:20.200 --> 01:19:22.130
  • great.
  • 01:19:22.130 --> 01:19:23.220
  • Dr. King said, "Listen,
  • 01:19:23.220 --> 01:19:24.280
  • everybody's not gonna be famous
  • 01:19:24.280 --> 01:19:26.000
  • but everybody can be great."
  • 01:19:26.000 --> 01:19:28.120
  • But Jesus said, "The greatest,"
  • 01:19:28.120 --> 01:19:29.070
  • hallelujah, "among you is gonna
  • 01:19:29.070 --> 01:19:31.050
  • be servant to them all."
  • 01:19:31.050 --> 01:19:32.030
  • Well, very quickly I just wanna
  • 01:19:32.030 --> 01:19:35.010
  • share with you because that dumb
  • 01:19:35.010 --> 01:19:36.160
  • devil, has been rearing
  • 01:19:36.160 --> 01:19:38.140
  • his ugly head, and see, while
  • 01:19:38.140 --> 01:19:40.100
  • God is about the hearts of
  • 01:19:40.100 --> 01:19:41.150
  • parents being turned toward the
  • 01:19:41.150 --> 01:19:43.030
  • children and the children to the
  • 01:19:43.030 --> 01:19:44.070
  • parent, the enemy comes in and
  • 01:19:44.070 --> 01:19:45.290
  • wants to divide and conquer.
  • 01:19:45.290 --> 01:19:47.220
  • Because he understands that we
  • 01:19:47.220 --> 01:19:49.040
  • cannot impact the world the way
  • 01:19:49.040 --> 01:19:50.260
  • we were called to impact unless
  • 01:19:50.260 --> 01:19:52.100
  • we unite together.
  • 01:19:52.100 --> 01:19:53.250
  • We have got to have a love for
  • 01:19:53.250 --> 01:19:55.140
  • one another, hallelujah,
  • 01:19:55.140 --> 01:19:57.120
  • that is borderless.
  • 01:19:57.120 --> 01:19:58.030
  • That has no bounds.
  • 01:19:58.030 --> 01:19:59.070
  • In other words, when Abraham
  • 01:19:59.070 --> 01:20:00.200
  • went into negotiations with God,
  • 01:20:00.200 --> 01:20:02.120
  • O Lord have mercy, he didn't
  • 01:20:02.120 --> 01:20:04.240
  • just pray for his nephew,
  • 01:20:04.240 --> 01:20:07.050
  • but he prayed for a city.
  • 01:20:07.050 --> 01:20:09.000
  • It is time for us now to care
  • 01:20:09.000 --> 01:20:11.100
  • about more than me, myself, and
  • 01:20:11.100 --> 01:20:13.010
  • I, us four and no more, or just
  • 01:20:13.010 --> 01:20:15.250
  • the local church that we attend.
  • 01:20:15.250 --> 01:20:18.020
  • But it is time for us,
  • 01:20:18.020 --> 01:20:20.130
  • hallelujah, to love and care
  • 01:20:20.130 --> 01:20:21.230
  • about the body of Christ,
  • 01:20:21.230 --> 01:20:23.030
  • connect with one another, and do
  • 01:20:23.030 --> 01:20:24.180
  • what God has called us to do.
  • 01:20:24.180 --> 01:20:26.090
  • And so then now, when we are
  • 01:20:26.090 --> 01:20:28.050
  • connected to God, you know, the
  • 01:20:28.050 --> 01:20:30.020
  • disciples wanted to know, "What
  • 01:20:30.020 --> 01:20:31.130
  • is the greatest commandment?"
  • 01:20:31.130 --> 01:20:33.190
  • And Jesus began to say, you
  • 01:20:33.190 --> 01:20:35.080
  • know, "The first one is that you
  • 01:20:35.080 --> 01:20:37.000
  • love God with all of your heart,
  • 01:20:37.000 --> 01:20:38.200
  • all of your soul, and all of
  • 01:20:38.200 --> 01:20:39.250
  • your mind.
  • 01:20:39.250 --> 01:20:40.240
  • First things first."
  • 01:20:40.240 --> 01:20:41.270
  • You are finding now that people
  • 01:20:41.270 --> 01:20:43.110
  • are going out and they're
  • 01:20:43.110 --> 01:20:44.070
  • forgetting the main ingredient.
  • 01:20:44.070 --> 01:20:45.190
  • What happened?
  • 01:20:45.190 --> 01:20:46.250
  • They're prophesying, oh, laying
  • 01:20:46.250 --> 01:20:48.040
  • hands on the sick.
  • 01:20:48.040 --> 01:20:49.180
  • But God doesn't know them.
  • 01:20:49.180 --> 01:20:50.280
  • They forgot about the love
  • 01:20:50.280 --> 01:20:51.280
  • relationship with the Lord.
  • 01:20:51.280 --> 01:20:53.260
  • Now, I wanna touch this right
  • 01:20:53.260 --> 01:20:55.070
  • here because there are many that
  • 01:20:55.070 --> 01:20:57.000
  • have been seduced, O Lord have
  • 01:20:57.000 --> 01:20:59.260
  • mercy, by the enemy because they
  • 01:20:59.260 --> 01:21:02.020
  • say things like, "I love God,"
  • 01:21:02.020 --> 01:21:03.190
  • but yet they misuse people in
  • 01:21:03.260 --> 01:21:06.260
  • their home.
  • 01:21:06.260 --> 01:21:08.120
  • They are not connected with
  • 01:21:08.120 --> 01:21:10.100
  • the body of Christ.
  • 01:21:10.100 --> 01:21:11.220
  • While the church is going to the
  • 01:21:11.220 --> 01:21:12.220
  • right, they're going to the
  • 01:21:12.220 --> 01:21:14.190
  • left.
  • 01:21:14.190 --> 01:21:15.060
  • If the vision says, "Go
  • 01:21:15.060 --> 01:21:16.040
  • forward," they're going
  • 01:21:16.040 --> 01:21:16.290
  • backward.
  • 01:21:16.290 --> 01:21:17.190
  • And but then, they have faith
  • 01:21:17.190 --> 01:21:19.170
  • crusades on the Internet, not
  • 01:21:19.170 --> 01:21:21.120
  • submitted to anybody, in the
  • 01:21:21.120 --> 01:21:23.150
  • name of "I'm doing my menistry."
  • 01:21:23.150 --> 01:21:25.230
  • I don't call it ministry.
  • 01:21:25.230 --> 01:21:27.070
  • I call it menistry.
  • 01:21:27.070 --> 01:21:28.010
  • I don't know where it comes
  • 01:21:28.010 --> 01:21:28.280
  • from, hallelujah, but it is not
  • 01:21:28.280 --> 01:21:30.060
  • from God.
  • 01:21:30.060 --> 01:21:31.000
  • Because what God is calling us
  • 01:21:31.000 --> 01:21:32.110
  • to do in these last days, it's
  • 01:21:32.110 --> 01:21:33.250
  • gonna call for us to be united
  • 01:21:33.250 --> 01:21:35.140
  • together.
  • 01:21:35.140 --> 01:21:36.030
  • First one, love God, yes, okay,
  • 01:21:36.030 --> 01:21:38.210
  • with all of our heart, with all
  • 01:21:38.210 --> 01:21:39.250
  • of our soul, and with all of our
  • 01:21:39.250 --> 01:21:40.290
  • mind.
  • 01:21:40.290 --> 01:21:42.120
  • But it didn't stop there.
  • 01:21:42.120 --> 01:21:43.180
  • Second, love others as you love
  • 01:21:43.180 --> 01:21:46.140
  • yourself.
  • 01:21:46.140 --> 01:21:47.100
  • And so then, now, if we are
  • 01:21:47.100 --> 01:21:49.060
  • going to minister effectively
  • 01:21:49.060 --> 01:21:50.260
  • the way God has called us to
  • 01:21:50.260 --> 01:21:52.090
  • minister effectively, then Jesus
  • 01:21:52.090 --> 01:21:53.290
  • also prayed this prayer, Lord, I
  • 01:21:53.290 --> 01:21:56.110
  • pray that their faith would fail
  • 01:21:56.110 --> 01:21:58.270
  • not.
  • 01:21:58.270 --> 01:21:59.200
  • Now we know that faith cometh by
  • 01:21:59.200 --> 01:22:00.260
  • hearing and hearing by the Word
  • 01:22:00.260 --> 01:22:01.280
  • of God.
  • 01:22:01.280 --> 01:22:02.230
  • Oh, it comes by hearing,
  • 01:22:02.230 --> 01:22:04.140
  • hallelujah.
  • 01:22:04.140 --> 01:22:05.120
  • But the Bible lets us know in
  • 01:22:05.120 --> 01:22:06.090
  • Galatians 5 that it works by
  • 01:22:06.090 --> 01:22:07.200
  • love.
  • 01:22:07.200 --> 01:22:08.200
  • It's so deep that even
  • 01:22:08.200 --> 01:22:10.020
  • 1 Corinthians 13 said, "If I
  • 01:22:10.020 --> 01:22:11.280
  • give my body and offer it to be
  • 01:22:11.280 --> 01:22:12.290
  • burned, it is absolutely nothing
  • 01:22:12.290 --> 01:22:15.070
  • if it is not done from the place
  • 01:22:15.070 --> 01:22:17.100
  • of love."
  • 01:22:17.100 --> 01:22:18.150
  • We've got to get back--c'mon,
  • 01:22:18.150 --> 01:22:20.050
  • what was the issue in
  • 01:22:20.050 --> 01:22:21.040
  • Revelations?
  • 01:22:21.040 --> 01:22:21.290
  • You've got to go back to your,
  • 01:22:21.290 --> 01:22:23.180
  • what?
  • 01:22:23.180 --> 01:22:24.120
  • First love.
  • 01:22:24.120 --> 01:22:25.130
  • Oh, you know, love pursues, love
  • 01:22:25.130 --> 01:22:26.230
  • inquires, loves seeks.
  • 01:22:26.230 --> 01:22:28.150
  • You know, you can tell what a
  • 01:22:28.150 --> 01:22:29.270
  • person is after by what they
  • 01:22:29.270 --> 01:22:31.090
  • ask.
  • 01:22:31.090 --> 01:22:32.170
  • You can tell what they're after
  • 01:22:32.170 --> 01:22:34.010
  • by, you know, what they seek or
  • 01:22:34.010 --> 01:22:35.050
  • what they investigate or what
  • 01:22:35.050 --> 01:22:36.240
  • their interest is.
  • 01:22:36.240 --> 01:22:38.150
  • And so now, we've gotta get back
  • 01:22:38.150 --> 01:22:40.000
  • to the main thing, hallelujah,
  • 01:22:40.000 --> 01:22:41.210
  • so that we can be that answer to
  • 01:22:41.210 --> 01:22:43.160
  • Jesus' prayer in the earth.
  • 01:22:43.160 --> 01:22:46.010
  • You know, a powerful thing
  • 01:22:46.010 --> 01:22:46.290
  • happened to me.
  • 01:22:46.290 --> 01:22:47.260
  • I was so excited.
  • 01:22:47.260 --> 01:22:49.090
  • Cuba opened up to me.
  • 01:22:49.090 --> 01:22:50.290
  • My God, I'm going to Cuba.
  • 01:22:50.290 --> 01:22:53.060
  • Woo!
  • 01:22:53.060 --> 01:22:54.000
  • I'm gonna preach the gospel.
  • 01:22:54.000 --> 01:22:55.110
  • Oh, yes, yes, yes.
  • 01:22:55.110 --> 01:22:56.290
  • Okay, so that door opened up to
  • 01:22:56.290 --> 01:22:58.060
  • me.
  • 01:22:58.060 --> 01:22:58.250
  • I was so excited about it.
  • 01:22:58.250 --> 01:22:59.280
  • I tell you, I could see it.
  • 01:22:59.280 --> 01:23:01.090
  • I could see demons being casted
  • 01:23:01.090 --> 01:23:02.190
  • out.
  • 01:23:02.190 --> 01:23:03.100
  • I can see that crusade
  • 01:23:03.100 --> 01:23:04.140
  • happening.
  • 01:23:04.140 --> 01:23:05.030
  • You know, you can't even buy a
  • 01:23:05.030 --> 01:23:06.120
  • ticket to go to Cuba but God had
  • 01:23:06.120 --> 01:23:07.150
  • opened that door up for me.
  • 01:23:07.150 --> 01:23:08.290
  • Lord, have mercy.
  • 01:23:08.290 --> 01:23:10.040
  • And I'm telling you, I'm going
  • 01:23:10.040 --> 01:23:11.070
  • on over there.
  • 01:23:11.070 --> 01:23:12.020
  • I'm gonna preach the gospel to
  • 01:23:12.020 --> 01:23:13.110
  • the poor.
  • 01:23:13.110 --> 01:23:14.040
  • I'm gonna tell the
  • 01:23:14.040 --> 01:23:15.130
  • broken-hearted, hallelujah, you
  • 01:23:15.130 --> 01:23:16.060
  • can be healed.
  • 01:23:16.060 --> 01:23:17.080
  • And on my way to Cuba, before I
  • 01:23:18.200 --> 01:23:21.200
  • walked out the door, my bags was
  • 01:23:21.200 --> 01:23:22.280
  • in the truck, hallelujah, I went
  • 01:23:22.280 --> 01:23:24.150
  • to hug my honey.
  • 01:23:24.150 --> 01:23:25.130
  • I knew it was gonna be a pretty
  • 01:23:25.130 --> 01:23:26.090
  • special because I'm going to
  • 01:23:26.090 --> 01:23:27.190
  • Cuba so we were gonna, you know,
  • 01:23:27.190 --> 01:23:28.290
  • embrace a little bit longer.
  • 01:23:28.290 --> 01:23:30.150
  • Well, I hugged him once.
  • 01:23:30.150 --> 01:23:31.250
  • And then he pulled me back and
  • 01:23:31.250 --> 01:23:33.190
  • we hugged again.
  • 01:23:33.190 --> 01:23:35.030
  • And I'm, like, "Oh, I love you.
  • 01:23:35.030 --> 01:23:37.180
  • Well, this is amazing.
  • 01:23:37.180 --> 01:23:38.100
  • Thank you, Lord," you know, kept
  • 01:23:38.100 --> 01:23:39.040
  • us together.
  • 01:23:39.040 --> 01:23:39.260
  • Hallelujah.
  • 01:23:39.260 --> 01:23:40.200
  • And so then I'm like,
  • 01:23:40.200 --> 01:23:41.090
  • okay, we better go or I'm gonna
  • 01:23:41.090 --> 01:23:42.040
  • miss my plane.
  • 01:23:42.040 --> 01:23:43.070
  • Well, the next time he hugged
  • 01:23:43.070 --> 01:23:44.100
  • me, he said, "No, no-no-no, no,
  • 01:23:44.100 --> 01:23:45.130
  • no."
  • 01:23:45.130 --> 01:23:46.120
  • I said, "Oh, oh, oh, okay."
  • 01:23:46.120 --> 01:23:49.000
  • He said, "Well, I'll let you go
  • 01:23:49.000 --> 01:23:51.060
  • but not today.
  • 01:23:51.060 --> 01:23:52.250
  • Take the bags out the car."
  • 01:23:52.250 --> 01:23:55.000
  • Well, that wasn't a test for me
  • 01:23:55.000 --> 01:23:56.150
  • because I've seen through time,
  • 01:23:56.150 --> 01:23:58.050
  • I understand, that you cannot go
  • 01:23:58.050 --> 01:23:59.270
  • against the principles of God.
  • 01:23:59.270 --> 01:24:01.050
  • That there is order.
  • 01:24:01.050 --> 01:24:02.100
  • And there are some, Lord, that
  • 01:24:02.100 --> 01:24:03.230
  • have been renegades and have
  • 01:24:03.230 --> 01:24:05.060
  • been rebellious in the name of
  • 01:24:05.060 --> 01:24:06.160
  • having a ministry.
  • 01:24:06.160 --> 01:24:07.210
  • That have not been homemakers
  • 01:24:07.210 --> 01:24:09.120
  • and keepers of their home and
  • 01:24:09.120 --> 01:24:10.260
  • taking care of their children
  • 01:24:10.260 --> 01:24:12.100
  • and obedient to their husbands
  • 01:24:12.100 --> 01:24:14.060
  • in the name of doing ministry.
  • 01:24:14.060 --> 01:24:15.210
  • Lord, have mercy.
  • 01:24:15.210 --> 01:24:16.260
  • Husbands abandoning their wives
  • 01:24:16.260 --> 01:24:18.100
  • in the name of ministry.
  • 01:24:18.100 --> 01:24:19.260
  • And so I went downstairs and I
  • 01:24:19.260 --> 01:24:21.190
  • just tootle-oot down there, to
  • 01:24:21.190 --> 01:24:23.140
  • the team that was going with me,
  • 01:24:23.140 --> 01:24:24.240
  • and I said, "Well, we're not
  • 01:24:24.240 --> 01:24:26.010
  • going.
  • 01:24:26.010 --> 01:24:27.190
  • Take the bags out the car."
  • 01:24:27.190 --> 01:24:28.270
  • Had a big old smile on my face.
  • 01:24:28.270 --> 01:24:30.070
  • Well, hey, I know order.
  • 01:24:30.070 --> 01:24:32.080
  • "Wives, obey your husband."
  • 01:24:32.080 --> 01:24:34.030
  • And also, he's my pastor.
  • 01:24:34.030 --> 01:24:35.210
  • There it is.
  • 01:24:35.210 --> 01:24:36.220
  • No brainer, okay?
  • 01:24:37.190 --> 01:24:40.190
  • Well, we had the prayer line.
  • 01:24:40.190 --> 01:24:42.160
  • Really, quickly.
  • 01:24:42.160 --> 01:24:43.160
  • We had the prayer line and so on
  • 01:24:43.160 --> 01:24:44.150
  • the prayer line they had been
  • 01:24:44.150 --> 01:24:46.020
  • praying about this ministry trip
  • 01:24:46.020 --> 01:24:47.020
  • to Cuba.
  • 01:24:47.020 --> 01:24:48.060
  • So when they see my face about a
  • 01:24:48.060 --> 01:24:49.180
  • day later, they're--you know,
  • 01:24:49.180 --> 01:24:51.180
  • I'm up there praying and then
  • 01:24:51.180 --> 01:24:52.250
  • somebody said, "Hey, what about
  • 01:24:52.250 --> 01:24:54.180
  • Cuba?"
  • 01:24:54.180 --> 01:24:55.250
  • I thought, "Oh, I'm have to tell
  • 01:24:55.250 --> 01:24:56.170
  • 'em that."
  • 01:24:56.170 --> 01:24:57.060
  • And so I wasn't upset about it
  • 01:24:57.060 --> 01:24:58.060
  • but I was sitting down there and
  • 01:24:58.060 --> 01:24:59.220
  • I'm thinking, "Okay, ooh."
  • 01:24:59.220 --> 01:25:01.150
  • I'm thinking to the Holy Spirit
  • 01:25:01.150 --> 01:25:02.200
  • and we having a conversation.
  • 01:25:02.200 --> 01:25:03.210
  • I said, "Well, this gonna be
  • 01:25:03.210 --> 01:25:04.230
  • pretty interesting.
  • 01:25:04.230 --> 01:25:05.150
  • Won't be telling 'em about how
  • 01:25:05.150 --> 01:25:06.080
  • many demons was cast out."
  • 01:25:06.080 --> 01:25:07.190
  • I said, "I'll just tell 'em my
  • 01:25:07.190 --> 01:25:08.150
  • husband told me that I couldn't
  • 01:25:08.150 --> 01:25:09.160
  • go."
  • 01:25:09.160 --> 01:25:10.120
  • And then all of a sudden, he
  • 01:25:10.120 --> 01:25:11.100
  • spoke to me and he said to me,
  • 01:25:11.100 --> 01:25:13.040
  • he said, "Medina, more than any
  • 01:25:13.040 --> 01:25:15.130
  • crusade that you could have gone
  • 01:25:15.130 --> 01:25:16.260
  • over there to run, more powerful
  • 01:25:16.260 --> 01:25:18.290
  • than tons of people you could
  • 01:25:18.290 --> 01:25:21.030
