  • YEARS.
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:07.060
  • THE AMERICA WE GREW UP IN IS NOT

  • GOING TO BE THE SAME FOR OUR
  • 00:01:10.190 --> 00:01:12.050

  • YOU WANT US TO DO?
  • 00:01:15.160 --> 00:01:17.140
  • THE PROBLEM IS WE'VE TURNED OUR
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:18.180
  • BACK ON GOD.
  • 00:01:18.180 --> 00:01:19.240
  • THIS NATION TURNED THEIR BACK ON
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:20.180
  • GOD.
  • 00:01:20.180 --> 00:01:22.020
  • WE TOOK GOD OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS.
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:24.070
  • WE SPEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON
  • 00:01:24.070 --> 00:01:26.230
  • EDUCATION AND WHAT HAS TEACHERS
  • 00:01:26.230 --> 00:01:27.170
  • DONE?
  • 00:01:27.170 --> 00:01:28.270
  • TAKEN GOD AWAY FROM THE STUDENTS
  • 00:01:28.270 --> 00:01:30.110
  • IN AMERICA.
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:32.000
  • KIDS TODAY NO NOTHING ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:01:32.000 --> 00:01:33.170
  • WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, MATT, WE
  • 00:01:33.170 --> 00:01:35.120
  • HAD THE LORD'S PRAYER.
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:42.000
  • NOW, THE ARGUMENT WAS IF YOU HAD
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:45.090
  • A TEACHER GODLESS TEACHER, WHAT
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:47.120
  • GOOD DOES IT DO?
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:49.020
  • IT'S NOT THEIR PRAYER.
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:50.010
  • IT'S THE LORD'S PRAYER.
  • 00:01:50.010 --> 00:01:51.120
  • HE CAN USE THE LORD'S PRAYER IN
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:53.090
  • A CHILD HEART.
  • 00:01:53.090 --> 00:01:54.150
  • WE USED TO HAVE THE TEN
  • 00:01:54.150 --> 00:01:55.080
  • COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:01:55.080 --> 00:01:56.070
  • WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL THE TEN
  • 00:01:56.070 --> 00:01:58.200
  • COMMANDMENTS WERE ON THE WALL OF
  • 00:01:58.200 --> 00:01:59.170
  • THE SCHOOL.
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:01.170
  • THEY TOOK THAT DOWN AND SAID IT
  • 00:02:01.170 --> 00:02:04.150
  • MIGHT OFFEND SOMEONE FROM
  • 00:02:04.150 --> 00:02:05.080
  • ANOTHER RELIGION.
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:07.230
  • LET IT OFFEND THEM.
  • 00:02:07.230 --> 00:02:09.100
  • IT'S GOD'S STANDARDS.
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:11.080
  • WE DON'T EXPOSE OUR CHILDREN TO
  • 00:02:11.080 --> 00:02:13.040
  • GOD'S STANDARDS.
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:14.110
  • I WANT TO PRAY.
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:16.100
  • I WENT TO ALL 50 STATES AND
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:18.030
  • ASKED PEOPLE TO JOIN ME ON THEIR
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:23.050

  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:30.050
  • PEOPLE DIDN'T COME TO HEAR ME,
  • 00:02:30.050 --> 00:02:33.040
  • THEY DIDN'T COME TO HEAR ME
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:35.250
  • SPEAK OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:36.230
  • THEY CAME TO PRAY.
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:38.220
  • IT WAS HUMBLING TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:40.260
  • STAND THERE AND LEAD PEOPLE IN
  • 00:02:40.260 --> 00:02:41.250
  • PRAYER.
  • 00:02:41.250 --> 00:02:42.180

  • FATHERS AS NEHEMIAH DID IN
  • 00:02:52.080 --> 00:02:53.010
  • CHAPTER ONE.
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:57.100
  • IT WAS AN UNUSUAL YEAR FOR IT.
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:59.010
  • ONCE YOU START IT, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:02:59.290
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:03.060
  • LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN.
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:04.120
  • THERE WAS A COMMITMENT.
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:07.040
  • SO IT STARTED JANUARY 1 IN DES
  • 00:03:07.040 --> 00:03:09.250
  • MOINES, IOWA.
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:10.290
  • I REMEMBER GOING OUT THERE TO
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:12.010
  • THE CAPITAL.
  • 00:03:12.010 --> 00:03:13.210
  • SUN MY DAY BUT IT WAS COLD AND
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:15.280
  • THERE WAS SNOW ON THE GROUND.
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:17.190
  • THERE WON'T BE ANYBODY OUT HERE.
  • 00:03:19.150 --> 00:03:22.150
  • THERE WAS ABOUT 2500 PEOPLE
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:24.020
  • STANDING OUT THERE IN THE COLD
  • 00:03:24.020 --> 00:03:24.250
  • TO PRAY.
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:26.170
  • I JUST REALIZED AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:28.150
  • GOD IS DOING SOMETHING.
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:30.070
  • IT WASN'T FRANKLIN GRAHAM BUT
  • 00:03:30.070 --> 00:03:31.150
  • GOD WAS DOING SOMETHING.
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:36.070
  • 25 MATT TO 30 MILLION
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:41.150
  • EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS DIDN'T
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:42.150
  • VOTE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:47.050
  • FOR WHATEVER REASON.
  • 00:03:47.050 --> 00:03:48.200
  • WE'LL LOSE THIS NATION IF WE
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:49.210
  • ADOPT VOTE.
  • 00:03:49.210 --> 00:03:50.250
  • CHRISTIANS HAVE TO WAKE UP.
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:51.180
  • THIS IS OUR HOUR.
  • 00:03:51.180 --> 00:03:53.040
  • IF WE DON'T SPEAK UP NOW WE MAY
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:55.250
  • NEVER HAVE A CHANCE TO DO IT
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:03:56.210
  • AGAIN.
  • 00:03:56.210 --> 00:03:57.280
  • - YOU, OVER THE LAST SEVERAL
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:04.280
  • MONTHS HAVE GONE TO 50 STATE
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.210
  • CAPITOLS NOW.
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:08.120
  • YOU TOLD ME OFF CAMERA YOUR
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:10.050
  • EXPECTATION WHEN YOU WERE FILING
  • 00:04:10.050 --> 00:04:11.210
  • THE PERMIT THERE MIGHT BE 500
  • 00:04:11.210 --> 00:04:12.260
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:12.260 --> 00:04:13.130
  • - THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BIG
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:14.280
  • CROWD I THOUGHT.
  • 00:04:14.280 --> 00:04:16.050
  • - THAT'S WHAT YOU WERE
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:17.040
  • THINKING.
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:20.070
  • - THAT WOULD DEVOTE THEMSELVES
  • 00:04:20.070 --> 00:04:22.000
  • COMING DOWN, MIDDLE OF THE DAY,
  • 00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:23.290
  • MIDDLE OF THE WEEK, WORKDAY AND
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:24.280
  • PRAY.
  • 00:04:26.200 --> 00:04:29.200
  • SO WHAT DID YOU SEE AS YOU
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:31.210
  • TRAVELED THE NATION?
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:33.070
  • - WE DID THEM AT NOON MIDDLE OF
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:35.210
  • THE WEEK, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY OR
  • 00:04:35.210 --> 00:04:36.220
  • THURSDAY WE DID THIS.
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:42.020
  • I THINK WHAT SURPRISED ME, MATT,
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:43.190
  • WHEN I STARTED WAS THE NUMBER OF
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:47.110
  • PEOPLE THAT COULD COME AND STAND
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:51.070
  • REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER THEY
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:52.160
  • WOULD COME AND STAND AND THEY
  • 00:04:52.160 --> 00:04:53.190
  • CAME TO PRAY.
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:54.070
  • WE WERE IN MISSOURI AND WENT TO
  • 00:04:56.170 --> 00:04:59.170
  • THE CAPITOL.
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:00.130
  • POURED RAIN.
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:01.230
  • RAINED THREE DAYS.
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:02.290
  • THE THE DAY WE GOT THERE IT
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:05.260
  • RAINED EVEN HARDER.
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:09.020
  • GROUND WAS SATURATED AND 3500
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:10.050
  • HUNDRED PEOPLE OUT THERE IN THE
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:11.110
  • POURING RAIN.
  • 00:05:11.110 --> 00:05:12.210
  • THEY SAID DO YOU WANT US TO HOLD
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:17.060
  • AN UMBRELLA?
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:17.180
  • NO.
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:19.080
  • THE PEOPLE OUT THERE DON'T HAVE
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:20.250
  • UMBRELLAS.
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:21.160
  • I'LL STAND WITH THEM.
  • 00:05:21.160 --> 00:05:23.030
  • I REMEMBER AFTER SPEAKING AND
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:25.030
  • LEADING IN PRAYER, WE WENT BACK
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:26.240
  • TO THE PLANE.
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:30.090
  • WE PASSED A TRUCK STOP WITH A
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:32.060
  • MCDONALD'S IN IT.
  • 00:05:32.060 --> 00:05:33.180

  • WE PULLED IN.
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:37.150
  • THERE WAS A LADY THAT CAME UP TO
  • 00:05:37.150 --> 00:05:39.130
  • ME ON A WALKER AND SAID YOU'RE

  • MR. GRAHAM, AREN'T YOU?
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:43.040
  • I SAID, YES.
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.200
  • SHE SAID, I WAS THERE TODAY.
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:46.070
  • I COULD TELL BECAUSE SHE WAS
  • 00:05:46.070 --> 00:05:47.060
  • WET.
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:48.230
  • SHE SAID I'M 93 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:51.090
  • SHE SAID I CAME TO PRAY AND MY
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:53.190

  • YOU'RE GETTING WET.
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:57.220
  • YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN.
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:05:59.020
  • SHE SAID I'M NOT GOING TO SIT
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:00.190
  • DOWN.
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:01.190
  • I CAME TO PRAY.
  • 00:06:04.060 --> 00:06:07.060
  • IT'S THINGS LIKE THAT, YOU
  • 00:06:07.060 --> 00:06:09.120
  • REALIZE GOD IS DOING SOMETHING.
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:10.050
  • - DID YOU FEEL A DESPERATION?
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:13.000
  • WERE THE PEOPLE DESPERATE?
  • 00:06:13.000 --> 00:06:14.000
  • - I DON'T THINK THERE WAS A

  • DESPERATION.
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:16.150

  • GOD.
  • 00:06:24.110 --> 00:06:25.120
  • I STOOD UP THERE AND SAID I'LL

  • PARTY.
  • 00:06:30.210 --> 00:06:31.250
  • AND THE REPUBLICANS WOULD BE
  • 00:06:31.250 --> 00:06:32.220
  • CLAPPING.

  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:43.080
  • ALL THIS.
  • 00:23:43.080 --> 00:23:45.240
  • THE FACT IS IT WASN'T
  • 00:23:45.240 --> 00:23:46.260
  • CONTROVERSIAL.
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:47.280
  • - AMERICA IS TOO YOUNG TO DIE.
  • 00:23:47.280 --> 00:23:50.020
  • I DON'T BELIEVE WE AS AMERICANS
  • 00:23:50.020 --> 00:23:52.190
  • AND CHRISTIANS SHOULD WITHDRAW.
  • 00:23:52.190 --> 00:23:53.220
  • WE MEN AND WOMEN ARE THE
  • 00:23:53.220 --> 00:23:56.140
  • INTEGRITY OF CHRISTIAN
  • 00:23:56.140 --> 00:23:57.200
  • COMMITMENT WHO WILL RUN FOR
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:23:59.090
  • POLITICAL OFFICE THIS YEAR.
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:01.000
  • - MY FATHER SPOKE OUT A NUMBER
  • 00:24:01.000 --> 00:24:03.000
  • OF TIMES THROUGHOUT THE YEARS
  • 00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:05.270
  • ENCOURAGING CHRISTIAN
  • 00:24:05.270 --> 00:24:06.150
  • PARTICIPATION AND RUN FOR OFFICE
  • 00:24:06.150 --> 00:24:08.180
  • AND ENCOURAGING CHRISTIANS TO
  • 00:24:08.180 --> 00:24:09.100
  • VOTE.
  • 00:24:09.100 --> 00:24:10.190
  • IT'S THEIR RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:24:10.190 --> 00:24:12.140
  • THEN THE LAST NUMBER OF YEARS
  • 00:24:12.140 --> 00:24:15.130
  • WE'VE ALLOWED PEOPLE TO
  • 00:24:15.130 --> 00:24:17.050
  • DISCOURAGE CHRISTIANS FROM
  • 00:24:17.050 --> 00:24:18.000
  • GETTING INVOLVED AND VOTING.
  • 00:24:18.170 --> 00:24:21.170
  • - WHEN WE SEE PEOPLE THAT WERE
  • 00:24:22.020 --> 00:24:25.020
  • CALLED TO THE VISION OF SHOWING
  • 00:24:25.020 --> 00:24:26.070
  • UP.
  • 00:24:26.070 --> 00:24:26.180
  • - THE RESPONSE.
  • 00:24:27.130 --> 00:24:30.130
  • - RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN.
  • 00:24:31.200 --> 00:24:34.200
  • RAIN, SHINE, SNOW OR SLEET ALL
  • 00:24:34.200 --> 00:24:35.130
  • THAT.
  • 00:24:35.130 --> 00:24:36.020
  • WE WERE PRAYING.
  • 00:24:39.140 --> 00:24:42.140
  • AND YOU'RE NOT A LOT OLDER THAN
  • 00:24:42.140 --> 00:24:44.190
  • ME BUT A LITTLE OLDER THAN I AM.
  • 00:24:44.190 --> 00:24:47.080
  • ALTHOUGH OUR HAIR IS THE SAME
  • 00:24:47.080 --> 00:24:48.240
  • COLOR.
  • 00:24:48.240 --> 00:24:51.110
  • MINE ALARMINGLY IS TURNING YOUR
  • 00:24:51.110 --> 00:24:52.140
  • COLOR FAST.
  • 00:24:52.140 --> 00:24:53.150
  • BUT LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION.
  • 00:24:53.150 --> 00:24:56.000
  • I'LL ASK YOU A THEOLOGICAL
  • 00:24:56.000 --> 00:24:57.170
  • QUESTION NOW.
  • 00:24:57.170 --> 00:25:00.120
  • THIS ENTIRE DECISION AMERICA WAS
  • 00:25:00.120 --> 00:25:01.100
  • ABOUT PRAYER.
  • 00:25:01.100 --> 00:25:03.200
  • HOW DO YOU BALANCE PRAYER AND
  • 00:25:03.200 --> 00:25:05.070
  • THE KOFY SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD?
  • 00:25:08.070 --> 00:25:11.070
  • YOU KNOW, HE'S SOVEREIGN OR WE
  • 00:25:11.070 --> 00:25:12.260
  • PRAY AND CHANGE THINGS?
  • 00:25:12.260 --> 00:25:14.160
  • HOW DO YOU RAM THOSE THINGS?
  • 00:25:14.160 --> 00:25:16.210
  • - THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:25:16.210 --> 00:25:18.070
  • WE KNOW GOD HEARS PRAYER.
  • 00:25:18.070 --> 00:25:19.230
  • WE KNOW GOD HEARS THE PRAYER OF
  • 00:25:19.230 --> 00:25:21.160
  • ONE RIGHTEOUS PERSON.
  • 00:25:21.160 --> 00:25:22.040
  • WE KNOW THAT.
  • 00:25:22.040 --> 00:25:24.070
  • WE ALSO KNOW OF THE EXAMPLE OF
  • 00:25:25.020 --> 00:25:28.020
  • THE JUDGE THAT THE WOMAN WENT TO
  • 00:25:28.020 --> 00:25:29.120
  • THE JUDGE.
  • 00:25:29.120 --> 00:25:30.150
  • OKAY, THIS IS AN EXAMPLE.
  • 00:25:31.170 --> 00:25:34.170
  • ND SHE KEPT WANTING JUSTICE.
  • 00:25:34.170 --> 00:25:37.040
  • BECAUSE SHE WAS PERSISTENT AND
  • 00:25:37.180 --> 00:25:40.180
  • KEPT COMING AND KEPT COMING, THE
  • 00:25:40.180 --> 00:25:43.160
  • JUDGE GAVE HER JUSTICE.
  • 00:25:43.160 --> 00:25:44.290
  • GOD DOES HEAR PRAYER.
  • 00:25:44.290 --> 00:25:47.150
  • WE'RE NOT TO GIVE UP.
  • 00:25:47.150 --> 00:25:49.030
  • AND SAY ONE PRAYER AND THAT'S
  • 00:25:49.030 --> 00:25:49.270
  • IT.
  • 00:25:49.270 --> 00:25:51.010
  • BUT WE KEEP COMING TO HIM.
  • 00:25:51.010 --> 00:25:52.060
  • AND GOD CAN CHANGE.
  • 00:25:52.060 --> 00:25:53.170
  • AND GOD CAN ANSWER.
  • 00:25:53.220 --> 00:25:56.220
  • AND GOD CAN MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.
  • 00:25:56.220 --> 00:25:58.020
  • I'VE SEEN IT HAPPEN IN MY LIFE
  • 00:25:59.270 --> 00:26:02.290
  • HOW PRAYER WORKS.
  • 00:26:02.290 --> 00:26:04.170
  • SO I BELIEVE IN PRAYER.
  • 00:26:04.170 --> 00:26:06.280
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE HUNDREDS OF
  • 00:26:06.280 --> 00:26:08.100
  • THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THIS
  • 00:26:08.100 --> 00:26:10.030
  • COUNTRY HAS STOOD ON THE CAPITAL
  • 00:26:10.030 --> 00:26:11.230
  • STEPS OF THEIR STATE AND
  • 00:26:11.230 --> 00:26:13.160
  • CONFESSED THEIR SINS TO GOD AND
  • 00:26:13.160 --> 00:26:15.110
  • ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:26:15.110 --> 00:26:17.000
  • CONFESS THE SINS OF OUR NATION,
  • 00:26:17.000 --> 00:26:19.280
  • CONFESS THE SINS OF THE FATHER'S
  • 00:26:20.160 --> 00:26:23.160
  • FAMILY AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:26:23.160 --> 00:26:24.280
  • GOD HEARS THAT.
  • 00:26:24.280 --> 00:26:26.080
  • I REMEMBER WE WERE IN SALEM
  • 00:26:26.080 --> 00:26:28.060
  • OREGON.
  • 00:26:28.060 --> 00:26:29.240
  • YOU TALK ABOUT A LIBERAL PLACE.
  • 00:26:30.190 --> 00:26:33.190
  • AS WE BOWED OUR HEAD TO PRAY,
  • 00:26:33.190 --> 00:26:35.130
  • THERE WAS SOMEBODY WAY IN THE
  • 00:26:35.130 --> 00:26:37.180
  • BACKGROUND AND HIS VOICE JUST
  • 00:26:37.180 --> 00:26:39.030
  • RANG OUT OVER THE WHOLE CROWD.
  • 00:26:43.080 --> 00:26:46.080
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:26:46.080 --> 00:26:48.130
  • WE HAVE PEOPLE PRAYING OUT LOUD.
  • 00:26:48.130 --> 00:26:50.080
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:26:50.210 --> 00:26:53.210
  • GAVE ME GOOSE BUMPS.
  • 00:26:55.100 --> 00:26:58.100
  • I THOUGHT, GOD LIKES THAT.
  • 00:26:58.100 --> 00:26:59.090
  • GOD LIKES THAT.
  • 00:26:59.090 --> 00:27:00.120
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:27:00.120 --> 00:27:01.210
  • AND THAT'S WHY WE WERE THERE.
  • 00:27:01.210 --> 00:27:02.260
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:27:02.260 --> 00:27:04.070
  • AND GOD HEARS PRAYER.
  • 00:27:04.070 --> 00:27:05.120
  • GOD ANSWERS PRAYER.
  • 00:27:05.120 --> 00:27:06.280
  • AND THE ONLY HOPE FOR AMERICA IS
  • 00:27:07.090 --> 00:27:10.090
  • THAT THE CHURCH WAKES UP.
  • 00:27:10.090 --> 00:27:11.250
  • AND PRAYS.
  • 00:27:11.250 --> 00:27:14.050
  • I THINK MATTHEW, THE THING THAT
  • 00:27:17.060 --> 00:27:20.060
  • PROBABLY, I WAS THE MOST
  • 00:27:20.060 --> 00:27:22.100
  • SURPRISED IS PEOPLE THAT CAME TO
  • 00:27:22.180 --> 00:27:25.180
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:27:25.180 --> 00:27:26.110
  • I'LL NOT HAVE A CROWD LIKE THIS
  • 00:27:26.110 --> 00:27:28.100
  • AND ASSUME EVERYBODY IS SAVED.
  • 00:27:28.100 --> 00:27:30.130
  • SO I JUST GAVE THREE MINUTE
  • 00:27:30.130 --> 00:27:32.160
  • GOSPEL MESSAGE, THREE MINUTES.
  • 00:27:34.100 --> 00:27:37.100
  • THE FACT GOD LOVES US.
  • 00:27:37.100 --> 00:27:38.200
  • WE'RE ALL SINNERS.
  • 00:27:38.200 --> 00:27:40.250
  • WE'VE ALL SINNED AND COME SHORT
  • 00:27:40.250 --> 00:27:42.080
  • OF GOD'S GLORY.
  • 00:27:42.080 --> 00:27:43.160
  • THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.
  • 00:27:43.160 --> 00:27:46.020
  • THAT'S THE PENALTY OF SIN IS
  • 00:27:46.020 --> 00:27:48.090
  • SPIRITUAL DEATH, PHYSICAL DEATH.
  • 00:27:48.090 --> 00:27:50.040

  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:51:12.060 --> 00:51:13.190
  • BUT ON THE TBN STATIONARY IT HAD
  • 00:51:13.190 --> 00:51:16.160
  • A SCRIPTURE IN THE BOTTOM.
  • 00:51:16.160 --> 00:51:18.200

  • LAST FEW MINUTES AND DO WHAT YOU
  • 00:52:38.290 --> 00:52:40.100
  • DO BEST.
  • 00:52:40.100 --> 00:52:42.080
  • AND DO WHAT OUR HERITAGE SAYS WE
