  • BUT, I NEVER-- I NEVER DREAMED
  • 00:16:45.160 --> 00:16:47.260
  • MY PARENTS STARTED LAKEWOOD
  • 00:16:49.250 --> 00:16:51.030
  • CHURCH IN HOUSTON, TEXAS ON
  • 00:16:51.030 --> 00:16:53.240
  • MOTHER'S DAY IN 1959 WITH 90
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:54.140
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:55.090
  • MY FATHER WAS A DENOMINATIONAL
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:57.140
  • MINISTER AND HE FELT LIKE HE
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:59.050
  • HAD MORE IN HIM.
  • 00:16:59.050 --> 00:16:59.210
  • HE LAUNCHED OUT AND HE STARTED
  • 00:16:59.210 --> 00:17:00.250
  • LAKEWOOD.
  • 00:17:00.250 --> 00:17:01.110
  • AND SO, I GREW UP IN A SMALL
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:02.170
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:03.050
  • I SAW MY PARENTS YEAR AFTER

  • YEAR BEING FAITHFUL.
  • 00:17:06.070 --> 00:17:08.190
  • MY DAD WOULD PREACH TO THOSE 90
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:09.240
  • PEOPLE LIKE HE WAS PREACHIN' TO
  • 00:17:09.240 --> 00:17:11.030
  • 90.000 PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:12.210
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:13.140
  • DON'T DESPISE THE DAY OF SMALL
  • 00:17:13.140 --> 00:17:14.170
  • BEGINNINGS.
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:17.120
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES YOU START
  • 00:17:17.120 --> 00:17:18.230
  • SMALL, BUT, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE
  • 00:17:18.230 --> 00:17:19.190
  • NOT GONNA END UP SMALL IF YOU
  • 00:17:19.190 --> 00:17:21.120
  • KEEP HONORING GOD, KEEP BEING
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:22.030
  • YOUR BEST.
  • 00:17:22.030 --> 00:17:22.160
  • I THINK WHAT STICKS OUT TO ME
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:25.020
  • IS -- AGAIN -- I SAW MY FATHER
  • 00:17:25.020 --> 00:17:25.290
  • BEING A MAN OF INTEGRITY,
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:27.080
  • GIVING IT HIS BEST
  • 00:17:27.080 --> 00:17:28.210
  • WITH 90 PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:29.210
  • FOR 12 YEARS, LAKEWOOD HAD LESS
  • 00:17:29.210 --> 00:17:31.160
  • THAN 200 PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:31.160 --> 00:17:32.220
  • IT DIDN'T REALLY GROW.
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:34.110
  • BUT I REALLY BELIEVE THOSE--
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.180
  • THOSE 12 YEARS WERE A TIME OF
  • 00:17:35.180 --> 00:17:37.130
  • PROVING AND A TIME OF TESTING
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:38.270
  • FOR MY FATHER.
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:41.040
  • YOU KNOW, IF GOD CAN'T TRUST
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:42.100
  • YOU TO BE FAITHFUL IN THE
  • 00:17:42.100 --> 00:17:43.100
  • WILDERNESS, HOW CAN HE TRUST
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:44.230
  • YOU TO BE FAITHFUL IN THE
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:45.250
  • PROMISED LAND?
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:46.120
  • SO, MAYBE YOU'RE AT A PLACE NOW
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:48.100
  • AND YOU THINK: MAN, I KNOW I
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:49.140
  • HAVE MORE IN ME.
  • 00:17:49.140 --> 00:17:50.070
  • YOU KNOW, GOD, YOU PROMISED ME
  • 00:17:50.070 --> 00:17:51.280
  • SOMETHING BIGGER THAN THIS.
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:53.050
  • WELL, KEEP BEING THE VERY BEST
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:54.040
  • RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:55.220
  • YOU KNOW, NOBODY MAY BE GIVING
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:56.230
  • YOU CREDIT.
  • 00:17:56.230 --> 00:17:58.010
  • BUT, YOU'RE NOT WORKING UNDER
  • 00:17:58.010 --> 00:17:59.040
  • PEOPLE; YOU'RE WORKING UNDER
  • 00:17:59.040 --> 00:17:59.280
  • GOD.
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:01.040
  • SO, 1972, THE CHURCH STARTED TO
  • 00:18:03.100 --> 00:18:04.020
  • REALLY GROW AND IT GREW TO A
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:05.040
  • CHURCH OF THOUSANDS.
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:05.200
  • WELL, MY DAD PASTORED THERE.
  • 00:18:05.200 --> 00:18:07.170
  • AND, 1981, AFTER COLLEGE-- I
  • 00:18:07.180 --> 00:18:10.180
  • CAME BACK 1982, I THINK IT WAS.
  • 00:18:10.180 --> 00:18:13.040
  • I CAME BACK AND I TOLD MY
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:14.280
  • FATHER I WANTED TO COME BACK
  • 00:18:14.280 --> 00:18:16.130
  • AND WORK AT THE CHURCH AND
  • 00:18:16.130 --> 00:18:17.110
  • START A TELEVISION MINISTRY.
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:18.260
  • SO, THAT'S WHAT I DID FOR 17
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:20.050
  • THAT'S WHY I LOVE THE CAMERAS,
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:23.160
  • AND THE LIGHTING, AND THE
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:24.050
  • BEAUTIFUL SETUP.
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:24.190
  • AND, I THOUGHT THAT'S WHAT I
  • 00:18:24.190 --> 00:18:25.230
  • WOULD DO WITH MY LIFE.
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:26.200
  • BUT, YOU KNOW, TOWARD THE END
  • 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:29.040
  • OF MY DAD'S LIFE-- WELL, LET ME
  • 00:18:29.040 --> 00:18:31.020
  • SAY THIS: MY DAD ASKED ME THOSE
  • 00:18:31.020 --> 00:18:31.290
  • 17 YEARS--
  • 00:18:31.290 --> 00:18:33.150
  • MANY TIMES, HE ASKED ME: "JOEL,
  • 00:18:33.150 --> 00:18:34.130
  • COME UP AND HELP ME PASTOR THE
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:35.040
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:35.270
  • I THINK YOU WOULD BE A GOOD
  • 00:18:35.270 --> 00:18:36.240
  • PASTOR."
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:37.190
  • BUT, I DIDN'T HAVE THE-- I
  • 00:18:37.190 --> 00:18:39.250
  • DIDN'T HAVE ANY DESIRE TO GET
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:41.220
  • UP IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:41.220 --> 00:18:43.070
  • I DIDN'T THINK THIS WAS IN ME.
  • 00:18:43.070 --> 00:18:43.280
  • AND I WOULD TELL HIM: "DADDY,
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:44.190
  • I'M NOT A PREACHER.
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:45.050
  • YOU PREACH AND I'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:45.250
  • LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:18:45.250 --> 00:18:46.260
  • BUT I LIKE STAYING BEHIND THE
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:47.170
  • SCENES."
  • 00:18:49.010 --> 00:18:52.010
  • SO, THAT'S WHAT I DID FOR 17
  • 00:18:52.010 --> 00:18:52.210
  • YEARS -- STAYED BEHIND THE
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:53.120
  • SCENES AND HELPED MY FATHER IN
  • 00:18:53.120 --> 00:18:54.080
  • THAT WAY.
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:55.150
  • BUT, MY FATHER WAS 77 YEARS
  • 00:18:55.150 --> 00:18:56.210
  • OLD, STILL SPEAKING EVERY
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:58.050
  • WEEKEND AT THE CHURCH.
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:18:58.220
  • BUT, HE HAD TO GO ON DIALYSIS
  • 00:18:58.220 --> 00:18:59.260
  • 'CAUSE HIS KIDNEYS WEREN'T
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:00.170
  • FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:01.040
  • AND, I'LL NEVER FORGET -- HE
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:03.260
  • WAS OVER AT MY SISTER LISA'S
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:04.200
  • HOUSE EATING DINNER ONE MONDAY
  • 00:19:04.200 --> 00:19:05.130
  • NIGHT.
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:06.040
  • AND, HE TOLD MY MOTHER AND
  • 00:19:06.040 --> 00:19:08.060
  • LISA, "I'M GOING TO CALL JOEL
  • 00:19:08.060 --> 00:19:09.010
  • AND SEE IF HE'LL SPEAK FOR
  • 00:19:09.010 --> 00:19:10.070
  • ME THIS SUNDAY AND GIVE
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:10.280
  • ME A WEEKEND OFF."
  • 00:19:10.280 --> 00:19:12.190
  • AND, MY MOM SAID: "JOHN, JOEL
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:13.150
  • IS NOT A PREACHER.
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:15.230
  • YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TIME."
  • 00:19:15.230 --> 00:19:16.120
  • HE SAID: "IT DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:19:16.120 --> 00:19:18.150
  • I'M GOING TO CALL HIM, ANYWAY."
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:19.070
  • MY DAD CALLED ME.
  • 00:19:19.070 --> 00:19:19.270
  • IF I'D TOLD HIM "NO" ONCE, I'D
  • 00:19:19.270 --> 00:19:20.270
  • TOLD HIM "NO" A THOUSAND TIMES.
  • 00:19:20.270 --> 00:19:22.040
  • "JOEL, WOULD YOU PREACH FOR ME
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:22.290
  • THIS SUNDAY?" AND I JUST KIND
  • 00:19:22.290 --> 00:19:23.270
  • OF LAUGHED.
  • 00:19:23.270 --> 00:19:24.170
  • I WAS VERY HONORED, BUT I JUST
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:25.260
  • SAID: "DADDY, I'M NOT A
  • 00:19:25.260 --> 00:19:26.150
  • PREACHER.
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:27.020
  • THAT'S JUST NOT ME."
  • 00:19:27.020 --> 00:19:29.170
  • AND SO, WE HUNG UP THE PHONE.
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:30.080
  • AND, YOU KNOW, MY FATHER NEVER
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:31.150
  • PRESSURED ME, BUT I KNEW HE
  • 00:19:31.150 --> 00:19:33.020
  • WANTED ME TO.
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:34.110
  • BUT, I SAT DOWN TO FINISH
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:35.000
  • EATING MY DINNER.
  • 00:19:35.000 --> 00:19:35.270
  • I WAS EATING DINNER, AS WELL.
  • 00:19:35.270 --> 00:19:37.070
  • ABOUT TWO MINUTES LATER,
  • 00:19:37.070 --> 00:19:38.150
  • SOMETHING ON THE INSIDE SAID SO

  • 00:20:47.010 --> 00:20:47.180
  • THE NURSES STOPPED ME IN THE
  • 00:20:47.180 --> 00:20:49.160

  • IT'S NOT-- YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES,
  • 00:26:50.250 --> 00:26:52.090
  • WE CAN SEE SOMETHING.
  • 00:26:52.090 --> 00:26:53.150
  • "HEY, I'M TOO BUSY," OR "HEY, I
  • 00:26:53.150 --> 00:26:55.130

  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:29:40.170 --> 00:29:41.210
  • GOD BLESSED YOU OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:29:41.210 --> 00:29:44.020
  • AND WE'VE BEEN TAUGHT TO STAY

  • STARTS MAKIN' BETTER DECISIONS,
  • 00:30:08.230 --> 00:30:11.130

  • THE GOODNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:30:29.000 --> 00:30:31.130
  • I TALKED TO A YOUNG LADY THAT

  • HAD BEEN THROUGH SEVEN
  • 00:30:32.110 --> 00:30:33.160
  • MISCARRIAGES.
  • 00:30:33.160 --> 00:30:35.190
  • THE DOCTORS HAD TOLD HER
  • 00:30:35.190 --> 00:30:36.220
  • THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH
  • 00:30:36.220 --> 00:30:37.160
  • HER WOMB, SHE COULDN'T CARRY
  • 00:30:37.160 --> 00:30:38.250
  • THE BABY, AND SHE SHOULD STOP
  • 00:30:38.250 --> 00:30:39.270
  • TRYING.
  • 00:30:39.270 --> 00:30:41.050
  • SHE HAD BIG TEARS RUNNIN' DOWN
  • 00:30:41.050 --> 00:30:42.270
  • HER CHEEKS.
  • 00:30:42.270 --> 00:30:43.140
  • SO HEARTBROKEN.
  • 00:30:43.140 --> 00:30:44.280
  • SHE WAS OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:30:44.280 --> 00:30:46.070
  • DIDN'T LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:30:46.070 --> 00:30:47.190
  • THE ODDS WERE AGAINST HER.
  • 00:30:48.020 --> 00:30:51.020
  • BUT PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE FINAL
  • 00:30:51.020 --> 00:30:51.240
  • SAY; GOD DOES.
  • 00:30:51.240 --> 00:30:52.260
  • AND, LAST YEAR, SHE CONCEIVED
  • 00:30:52.260 --> 00:30:54.080
  • AND CARRIED THE BABY FULL TERM.
  • 00:30:54.080 --> 00:30:56.270
  • HER DOCTOR TOLD HER, IN 25
  • 00:30:56.270 --> 00:30:58.220
  • YEARS OF PRACTICING, HE'D NEVER
  • 00:30:58.220 --> 00:31:00.110
  • SEEN THAT HAPPEN BEFORE.
  • 00:31:00.110 --> 00:31:01.080
  • AND THE ODDS MAY BE AGAINST
  • 00:31:01.080 --> 00:31:03.160
  • YOU.
  • 00:31:03.160 --> 00:31:05.050
  • EVERY VOICE SAYS: YOU'LL NEVER
  • 00:31:05.050 --> 00:31:05.260
  • HAVE THE BABY.
  • 00:31:05.260 --> 00:31:06.230
  • YOU'LL NEVER BREAK THE

  • YOU KNOW THAT GOD IS ABOUT
  • 00:31:12.210 --> 00:31:13.220
  • TO SHOW UP OUT OF SEASON
  • 00:31:13.220 --> 00:31:15.070
  • AND MAKE THINGS HAPPEN THAT
  • 00:31:15.070 --> 00:31:16.050
  • LOOKED IMPOSSIBLE.

  • 38 YEARS.
  • 00:31:28.090 --> 00:31:28.250
  • THERE WERE FIVE LARGE PORCHES
  • 00:31:28.250 --> 00:31:30.210
  • AROUND THE POOL, FILLED WITH

  • SICK PEOPLE.
  • 00:31:31.230 --> 00:31:32.230
  • VERSE 4 SAYS THAT THE ANGEL

  • BE HEALED.
  • 00:31:41.060 --> 00:31:42.070
  • THE PEOPLE KNEW WHEN THE SEASON

  • FOR THE ANGEL TO COME WAS.
  • 00:31:44.170 --> 00:31:46.080
  • THEY HAD SEEN IT HAPPEN AGAIN
  • 00:31:46.080 --> 00:31:47.190
  • AND AGAIN.
  • 00:31:47.190 --> 00:31:49.260
  • THEY KNEW THAT WAS THEIR WINDOW
  • 00:31:49.260 --> 00:31:51.250
  • OF OPPORTUNITY TO GET WELL.
  • 00:31:51.250 --> 00:31:52.270
  • ANY MOMENT, THE ANGEL COULD

  • NEXT.
  • 00:32:04.150 --> 00:32:05.060
  • ONE DAY, JESUS CAME WALKING BY
  • 00:32:07.110 --> 00:32:09.070
  • THE POOL AND HE SAID TO THE

  • 00:32:11.130 --> 00:32:12.040
  • THE PROBLEM WAS IT WASN'T THE

  • THE STIRRING OF THE WATERS.
  • 00:32:17.290 --> 00:32:19.050
  • AND, I CAN IMAGINE THE MAN WAS

  • HELP ME GET IN THE WATER.
  • 00:32:23.240 --> 00:32:25.250
  • THEN, HE WAS OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:32:29.250 --> 00:32:32.010
  • WELL, JESUS SAID TO HIM, "GET
  • 00:32:32.010 --> 00:32:32.220
  • UP, PICK UP YOUR BED, AND

  • WALK."
  • 00:32:34.150 --> 00:32:35.080
  • AND, INSTANTLY, THE MAN WAS
  • 00:32:35.080 --> 00:32:35.280
  • HEALED.
  • 00:32:35.280 --> 00:32:37.260
  • WELL, GOD WAS SHOWIN' US HOW HE
  • 00:32:37.260 --> 00:32:38.180
  • CAN DO THINGS OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:32:38.180 --> 00:32:41.040
  • DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THE RIGHT

  • TIME.
  • 00:32:43.030 --> 00:32:44.030
  • THE CONDITIONS MAY NOT LOOK
  • 00:32:44.030 --> 00:32:44.270
  • PERFECT.
  • 00:32:44.270 --> 00:32:45.140
  • CIRCUMSTANCE MAY TELL YOU IT'S

  • YOU THINK IS THE WRONG TIME.
  • 00:32:59.030 --> 00:33:00.290
  • IT LOOKS LIKE THE ANGEL IS

  • MONTHS AND MONTHS AWAY.
  • 00:33:04.070 --> 00:33:05.050
  • GOD DOESN'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR

  • GOD CAN CAUSE YOU TO BLOSSOM
  • 00:33:22.240 --> 00:33:24.150
  • OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:33:24.150 --> 00:33:26.070
  • WHEN ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES SAY,
  • 00:33:26.070 --> 00:33:28.100
  • "IT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN," "IT'S
  • 00:33:28.100 --> 00:33:29.150
  • TOO LATE," "YOU'RE HAVIN' TOO

  • HE'S GOING TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:33:39.260 --> 00:33:40.140
  • OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:33:42.000 --> 00:33:45.000
  • AWHILE BACK, I WENT THROUGH ONE
  • 00:33:45.000 --> 00:33:45.220
  • OF THOSE WEEKS WHERE EVERYTHING
  • 00:33:45.220 --> 00:33:46.200
  • THAT COULD GO WRONG DID.
  • 00:33:46.200 --> 00:33:47.260
  • WE HAD...DIFFICULTIES OVER
  • 00:33:47.260 --> 00:33:50.150
  • HERE, AND, PEOPLE COMING
  • 00:33:50.150 --> 00:33:51.110
  • AGAINST US OVER THERE.
  • 00:33:51.110 --> 00:33:52.090
  • AND, SOMEBODY FILED A LAWSUIT.
  • 00:33:52.090 --> 00:33:53.220
  • AND, A MAJOR PIECE OF EQUIPMENT
  • 00:33:53.220 --> 00:33:55.210
  • BROKE THAT WE HAD TO REPLACE.
  • 00:33:55.210 --> 00:33:56.250
  • IT WAS ONE HEADACHE AFTER
  • 00:33:56.250 --> 00:33:58.110
  • ANOTHER.
  • 00:33:58.110 --> 00:33:59.030
  • AND JUST WHEN I THOUGHT IT
  • 00:33:59.030 --> 00:34:00.240
  • COULDN'T GET ANY WORSE, I WENT
  • 00:34:00.240 --> 00:34:02.030
  • HOME ONE AFTERNOON -- VICTORIA
  • 00:34:02.030 --> 00:34:03.240
  • WAS SITTING IN THE DEN, HOLDING
  • 00:34:03.240 --> 00:34:05.120
  • THE DOG, CRYING.
  • 00:34:05.120 --> 00:34:07.200
  • THANKS, JONNY.
  • 00:34:07.200 --> 00:34:09.150
  • HOLDING THE DOG, CRYING.
  • 00:34:09.150 --> 00:34:11.050
  • WELL, SHE HAD TAKEN THE DOG TO
  • 00:34:11.050 --> 00:34:12.090
  • THE DOCTOR.
  • 00:34:12.090 --> 00:34:14.120
  • LONG STORY SHORT, WE HAD TO PUT
  • 00:34:14.120 --> 00:34:15.110
  • THE DOG TO SLEEP.
  • 00:34:15.110 --> 00:34:16.280
  • AND IF THERE WAS EVER A WEEK--
  • 00:34:16.280 --> 00:34:18.260
  • OR, OF ALL WEEKS THAT DOG COULD
  • 00:34:18.260 --> 00:34:20.140
  • HAVE DIED, HE PICKED THAT WEEK.
  • 00:34:20.140 --> 00:34:21.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:34:21.110 --> 00:34:22.070
  • WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS.
  • 00:34:22.070 --> 00:34:23.260
  • AND IF I EVER FELT LIKE A TIME
  • 00:34:23.260 --> 00:34:25.110
  • WHERE I WAS DEFINITELY OUT OF
  • 00:34:25.110 --> 00:34:27.080
  • SEASON, IT WAS THEN.
  • 00:34:27.080 --> 00:34:29.160
  • I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A
  • 00:34:29.160 --> 00:34:30.280
  • COUNTRY-WESTERN SONG:
  • 00:34:30.280 --> 00:34:31.180
  • EVERYTHING WENT WRONG,
  • 00:34:31.180 --> 00:34:32.240
  • THEN, THE DOG DIED.
  • 00:34:32.240 --> 00:34:33.290
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:34:33.290 --> 00:34:36.160
  • BUT WE ALL FACE THESE SEASONS
  • 00:34:36.160 --> 00:34:37.070
  • OF DIFFICULTIES, WHERE ONE
  • 00:34:37.070 --> 00:34:38.080
  • THING AFTER ANOTHER GOES WRONG.
  • 00:34:38.080 --> 00:34:39.260
  • AND, THE LAST THING ON MY MIND
  • 00:34:39.260 --> 00:34:41.220
  • WAS BEING BLESSED, SEEING FAVOR
  • 00:34:41.220 --> 00:34:43.110
  • AND INCREASE.
  • 00:34:43.110 --> 00:34:45.090
  • I WAS PRAYING FOR GOD TO JUST
  • 00:34:45.090 --> 00:34:46.040
  • SUSTAIN US, HELP US MAKE IT
  • 00:34:46.040 --> 00:34:47.160
  • THROUGH, FIGHT OUR BATTLES.
  • 00:34:47.160 --> 00:34:49.030
  • BUT A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER, IN
  • 00:34:49.030 --> 00:34:51.100
  • THE MIDDLE OF THAT DIFFICULTY,
  • 00:34:51.100 --> 00:34:53.230
  • I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM
  • 00:34:53.230 --> 00:34:55.070
  • THE VICE PRESIDENT OF ONE OF
  • 00:34:55.070 --> 00:34:57.070
  • THE LARGEST, MOST PRESTIGIOUS
  • 00:34:57.070 --> 00:34:59.090
  • MEDIA COMPANIES IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:34:59.090 --> 00:35:00.220
  • AND, WE HAD NEVER MET, NEVER
  • 00:35:00.220 --> 00:35:02.030
  • HAD ANY CONTACT, BUT, HE
  • 00:35:02.030 --> 00:35:03.260
  • WATCHES US ON TELEVISION.
  • 00:35:03.260 --> 00:35:06.210
  • AND, HE PRESENTED US THE
  • 00:35:06.210 --> 00:35:08.130
  • LARGEST MEDIA OPPORTUNITY THAT
  • 00:35:08.130 --> 00:35:09.230
  • WE'D EVER RECEIVED.
  • 00:35:09.230 --> 00:35:10.140
  • WE AGREED TO PURSUE IT.
  • 00:35:10.140 --> 00:35:11.280
  • HE SAID, "OKAY, I'LL HAVE MY
  • 00:35:11.280 --> 00:35:13.030
  • 800 EMPLOYEES WORKING FOR YOU
  • 00:35:13.030 --> 00:35:14.250
  • THESE NEXT FEW MONTHS."
  • 00:35:16.200 --> 00:35:19.200
  • WHEN I FELT THE LEAST FAVORED,
  • 00:35:19.200 --> 00:35:20.220
  • WHEN I HAD THE MOST OPPOSITION,
  • 00:35:20.220 --> 00:35:21.270
  • GOD SHOWED UP AND BLESSED ME
  • 00:35:21.270 --> 00:35:24.030
  • OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:35:26.080 --> 00:35:29.080
  • JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T FEEL
  • 00:35:29.080 --> 00:35:29.280
  • FAVORED DOESN'T MEAN THAT
  • 00:35:29.280 --> 00:35:30.170
  • YOU'RE NOT FAVORED.
  • 00:35:30.170 --> 00:35:31.130
  • SOMETIMES, GOD WILL WAIT ON
  • 00:35:31.130 --> 00:35:32.160
  • PURPOSE AND THEN DO SOMETHING
  • 00:35:32.160 --> 00:35:35.010
  • TO YOU OUT OF SEASON, THEN DO
  • 00:35:35.010 --> 00:35:37.250
  • SOMETHING AMAZING JUST TO

  • REMIND YOU THAT HE'S IN CONTROL
  • 00:35:39.120 --> 00:35:40.190
  • AND HIM BEING FOR YOU IS MORE
  • 00:35:40.190 --> 00:35:42.190
  • THAN THE WORLD BEING AGAINST
  • 00:35:42.190 --> 00:35:43.220
  • YOU.
  • 00:35:43.220 --> 00:35:44.070
  • ARE YOU OUT OF SEASON TODAY?
  • 00:35:44.070 --> 00:35:45.230
  • ARE YOU STUCK IN SOME AREA OF
  • 00:35:45.230 --> 00:35:47.170
  • LIFE?
  • 00:35:47.170 --> 00:35:49.090
  • STAY ENCOURAGED.
  • 00:35:49.090 --> 00:35:49.270
  • GOD SEES WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:35:49.270 --> 00:35:52.240
  • HE HAS YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS
  • 00:35:52.240 --> 00:35:53.150
  • HAND.
  • 00:35:53.150 --> 00:35:56.000
  • HE HASN'T BROUGHT YOU THIS FAR
  • 00:35:56.000 --> 00:35:56.210
  • TO LEAVE YOU.
  • 00:35:56.210 --> 00:35:57.250
  • HE'S ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:35:57.250 --> 00:35:58.190
  • UNUSUAL, SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:35:58.190 --> 00:36:00.060
  • NOT EXPECTING, WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:36:00.060 --> 00:36:01.240
  • GOING TO SAY, LIKE ME, "WOW,
  • 00:36:01.240 --> 00:36:03.020
  • GOD, I DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING."
  • 00:36:07.070 --> 00:36:10.070
  • JESUS NOT ONLY HEALED THE
  • 00:36:10.070 --> 00:36:11.060
  • CRIPPLED MAN OUT OF SEASON,
  • 00:36:11.060 --> 00:36:11.260
  • WHEN THE ANGEL NORMALLY DIDN'T
  • 00:36:11.260 --> 00:36:12.240
  • COME, BUT HE DIDN'T-- HE HEALED
  • 00:36:12.240 --> 00:36:13.160
  • HIM ON THE SABBATH.
  • 00:36:13.160 --> 00:36:14.230
  • THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS
  • 00:36:14.230 --> 00:36:17.040
  • COMPLAINED THAT HE HEALED THE
  • 00:36:17.040 --> 00:36:19.180
  • MAN ON THE WRONG DAY.
  • 00:36:19.180 --> 00:36:20.160
  • YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK ON
  • 00:36:20.160 --> 00:36:21.070
  • THE SABBATH.
  • 00:36:21.070 --> 00:36:23.070
  • BUT I'VE LEARNED GOD LIKES TO
  • 00:36:23.070 --> 00:36:23.280
  • BREAK THE RULES.
  • 00:36:23.280 --> 00:36:25.060
  • HE LIKES TO DO THINGS OUT OF
  • 00:36:25.060 --> 00:36:27.070
  • THE ORDINARY, THINGS THAT DON'T
  • 00:36:27.070 --> 00:36:28.120
  • MAKE SENSE, WHERE THERE'S NO
  • 00:36:28.120 --> 00:36:30.260
  • LOGICAL EXPLANATION.
  • 00:36:30.260 --> 00:36:32.230
  • AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED IN MY
  • 00:36:32.230 --> 00:36:34.110
  • LIFE WITH MY MOM.
  • 00:36:35.010 --> 00:36:38.010
  • SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH TERMINAL
  • 00:36:38.010 --> 00:36:38.230
  • LIVER CANCER IN 1981, GIVEN A
  • 00:36:38.230 --> 00:36:39.290
  • FEW WEEKS TO LIVE.
  • 00:36:39.290 --> 00:36:42.180
  • THERE WAS NO TREATMENT THAT
  • 00:36:42.180 --> 00:36:43.280
  • THEY COULD GIVE HER.
  • 00:36:43.280 --> 00:36:44.290
  • THE DOCTORS, UNFORTUNATELY,
  • 00:36:44.290 --> 00:36:46.140
  • JUST SENT HER HOME, AND, YOU
  • 00:36:46.140 --> 00:36:47.250
  • KNOW, TOLD HER TO PREPARE FOR
  • 00:36:47.250 --> 00:36:49.030
  • THE WORST.
  • 00:36:49.030 --> 00:36:50.000
  • SHE WAS DEFINITELY OUT OF
  • 00:36:50.000 --> 00:36:51.090
  • SEASON.
  • 00:36:51.090 --> 00:36:53.240
  • OF COURSE, SHE WAS 48 YEARS
  • 00:36:53.240 --> 00:36:54.140
  • OLD.
  • 00:36:54.140 --> 00:36:55.110
  • SHE WAS YOUNG.
  • 00:36:55.110 --> 00:36:55.270
  • SHE WANTED TO LIVE, BUT, IT
  • 00:36:55.270 --> 00:36:56.260
  • LOOKED LIKE THE ANGEL WAS FAR
  • 00:36:56.260 --> 00:36:58.030
  • AWAY.
  • 00:36:58.030 --> 00:36:59.240
  • IT LOOKED LIKE THE WATERS WOULD
  • 00:36:59.240 --> 00:37:01.140
  • NEVER BE STIRRED.
  • 00:37:01.140 --> 00:37:02.270
  • BUT THE GOD WHO BREATHED LIFE
  • 00:37:02.270 --> 00:37:04.230
  • INTO YOU, THE GOD WHO KNEW YOU
  • 00:37:04.230 --> 00:37:06.040
  • BEFORE YOU WERE FORMED IN YOUR
  • 00:37:06.040 --> 00:37:08.030
  • MOTHER'S WOMB, THE GOD WHO
  • 00:37:08.030 --> 00:37:09.080
  • CONTROLS YOUR DESTINY, AGAINST
  • 00:37:09.080 --> 00:37:11.070
  • ALL ODDS, HE SHOWED UP OUT OF
  • 00:37:11.070 --> 00:37:13.030
  • SEASON, WHEN IT LOOKED
  • 00:37:13.030 --> 00:37:14.290
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:37:14.290 --> 00:37:16.230
  • MEDICALLY SPEAKING, MY MOTHER
  • 00:37:16.230 --> 00:37:18.060
  • WAS DONE.
  • 00:37:18.060 --> 00:37:18.280
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:37:18.280 --> 00:37:20.010
  • GOD BROKE THE RULES.
  • 00:37:20.140 --> 00:37:23.140
  • HE DID WHAT MEDICINE COULDN'T
  • 00:37:23.140 --> 00:37:24.050
  • DO.
  • 00:37:24.050 --> 00:37:24.170
  • AND, TODAY, 37 YEARS LATER, MY
  • 00:37:24.170 --> 00:37:25.150
  • MOTHER IS STILL ALIVE AND STILL
  • 00:37:25.150 --> 00:37:26.210
  • GOING STRONG, 84 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:37:26.210 --> 00:37:27.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:37:28.230 --> 00:37:31.230
  • BUT WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT

  • THE STIRRING OF THE WATERS.
  • 00:39:07.200 --> 00:39:08.280

  • THE POOL.
  • 00:39:10.070 --> 00:39:10.220
  • HE DID IT AN UNUSUAL WAY.

  • AND GOD IS NOT ONLY GOING TO DO
  • 00:39:13.030 --> 00:39:16.030
  • THINGS OUT OF SEASON, NOT AT

  • WERE EXPECTING IT.
  • 00:39:26.230 --> 00:39:27.250
  • SO, DON'T PUT GOD IN A BOX AND
  • 00:39:27.250 --> 00:39:29.150
  • TELL HIM HOW TO DO IT, AND WHEN
  • 00:39:29.150 --> 00:39:30.230
  • TO DO IT, AND WHERE TO DO IT.
  • 00:39:30.230 --> 00:39:32.030
  • SOMETIMES, WE THINK WE HAVE TO
  • 00:39:32.030 --> 00:39:33.180
  • HELP GOD OUT, GIVE HIM ALL THE

  • DETAILS, IN CASE HE DOESN'T
  • 00:39:35.180 --> 00:39:36.120
  • KNOW.
  • 00:39:36.120 --> 00:39:37.160
  • LET GOD DO IT HIS WAY.

  • WAYS.
  • 00:39:42.140 --> 00:39:44.240
  • BUT IF YOU'RE SET IN YOUR MIND
  • 00:39:44.240 --> 00:39:46.010
  • HOW IT'S GONNA HAPPEN, WHEN
  • 00:39:46.010 --> 00:39:47.180
  • IT'S GONNA HAPPEN,

  • WHEN WE NEEDED A LARGER

  • SANCTUARY BACK AT HOME, I
  • 00:40:26.220 --> 00:40:27.170
  • THOUGHT WE'D HAVE TO BUILD ONE,
  • 00:40:27.170 --> 00:40:28.140
  • LIKE I'D SEEN MY FATHER DO SO
  • 00:40:28.140 --> 00:40:29.230
  • MANY TIMES.

  • I EVEN TRIED TO BUY THE LAND,
  • 00:40:30.270 --> 00:40:33.050
  • BUT TWICE, THE PROPERTY WAS
  • 00:40:33.070 --> 00:40:36.070
  • SOLD OUT FROM UNDER US.
  • 00:40:36.070 --> 00:40:37.210

  • THE OWNER'S DIDN'T KEEP THEIR

  • WORD.
  • 00:40:39.260 --> 00:40:40.110
  • I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:40:40.110 --> 00:40:42.230
  • I HAD MY PLANS ALL FIGURED OUT.
  • 00:40:42.230 --> 00:40:43.270
  • WE'D PURCHASE THE PROPERTY,
  • 00:40:43.270 --> 00:40:44.280
  • BUILD A SANCTUARY, THEN WE
  • 00:40:44.280 --> 00:40:47.020
  • COULD GROW.
  • 00:40:47.020 --> 00:40:49.000

  • THERE WERE NO MORE OPTIONS,
  • 00:41:09.250 --> 00:41:10.250
  • THEN GOD STEPPED IN AND SAID:

  • WE LEASED IT FOR A FEW YEARS.
  • 00:41:17.130 --> 00:41:19.170
  • THEN, WE PURCHASED IT FOR
  • 00:41:19.170 --> 00:41:22.140
  • $7 1/2 MILLION.
  • 00:41:22.280 --> 00:41:25.280

  • BOAT OFF ON THE SHORE.
  • 00:42:06.200 --> 00:42:08.060
  • PETER WAS OVER CLEANING HIS NETS

  • AFTER A LONG NIGHT OF FISHING.
  • 00:42:11.100 --> 00:42:12.010
  • THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE

  • ASKED TO BORROW HIS BOAT.
  • 00:42:16.270 --> 00:42:17.220
  • PETER AGREED.
  • 00:42:17.220 --> 00:42:18.260
  • JESUS PUSHED BACK AND TAUGHT
  • 00:42:18.260 --> 00:42:20.250
  • THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:42:20.250 --> 00:42:21.090

  • DO SOMETHING TO THANK PETER,
  • 00:42:22.100 --> 00:42:24.240
  • AND, HE TOLD HIM TO GO BACK OUT
  • 00:42:24.240 --> 00:42:26.010
  • INTO THE WATER AND HE WOULD
  • 00:42:26.010 --> 00:42:27.240
  • CATCH A GREAT HAUL OF FISH.
  • 00:42:27.240 --> 00:42:30.210

  • THIS TYPE OF FISHING YOU DIDN'T
  • 00:42:36.170 --> 00:42:38.110
  • DO IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:42:38.110 --> 00:42:39.060
  • EVERYTHING IN PETER SAID: DON'T
  • 00:42:39.060 --> 00:42:41.140
  • GO BACK OUT.
  • 00:42:41.140 --> 00:42:42.100
  • IT'S GOING TO BE A WASTE OF
  • 00:42:42.100 --> 00:42:43.060
  • TIME.
  • 00:42:43.060 --> 00:42:43.270
  • THIS IS NOT WHEN THE FISH
  • 00:42:43.270 --> 00:42:45.070
  • NORMALLY BITE.
  • 00:42:46.000 --> 00:42:49.000
  • PETER SAID, "SIR, WE WORKED

  • YET, IF YOU SAY SO, I'LL GO
  • 00:42:50.290 --> 00:42:52.290
  • BACK OUT."
  • 00:42:52.290 --> 00:42:54.210
  • PETER WENT OUT AND CAUGHT SO
  • 00:42:54.210 --> 00:42:56.020
  • MANY FISH THAT HIS NET BEGAN TO

  • BREAK.
  • 00:42:57.140 --> 00:42:59.090
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THERE
  • 00:42:59.090 --> 00:43:00.230
  • WERE NO FISH THERE THE NIGHT
  • 00:43:00.230 --> 00:43:02.040

  • 00:43:04.010 --> 00:43:06.240
  • HE DOESN'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE
  • 00:43:06.240 --> 00:43:07.160
  • RIGHT TIME, THE RIGHT SEASON,
  • 00:43:07.160 --> 00:43:09.210
  • THE WAY IT NORMALLY HAPPENS.
  • 00:43:09.210 --> 00:43:10.220
  • GOD CAN BREAK THE RULES.
  • 00:43:10.220 --> 00:43:12.120
  • HE CAN DO IT A NON-TRADITIONAL
  • 00:43:12.120 --> 00:43:15.070
  • WAY AT AN INOPPORTUNE TIME --
  • 00:43:15.070 --> 00:43:16.280
  • WHEN THE PROPERTY WAS SOLD OUT
  • 00:43:16.280 --> 00:43:18.240
  • FROM UNDER YOU, WHEN YOU'VE
  • 00:43:18.240 --> 00:43:20.020
  • STRUGGLED WITH AN ADDICTION FOR
  • 00:43:20.020 --> 00:43:21.070
  • YEARS.
  • 00:43:21.070 --> 00:43:22.290
  • SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED, YOU
  • 00:43:22.290 --> 00:43:24.060

  • SHOWED UP OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:43:25.080 --> 00:43:26.130
  • HE TURNED IT AROUND A
  • 00:43:26.130 --> 00:43:29.110
  • NON-TRADITIONAL WAY.
  • 00:43:29.110 --> 00:43:30.120
  • VERSE 9 SAYS PETER WAS
  • 00:43:30.120 --> 00:43:32.200
  • AWESTRUCK AT THE SIZE OF THE
  • 00:43:32.200 --> 00:43:34.070
  • CATCH.
  • 00:43:34.070 --> 00:43:35.100
  • GOD HAS SOME BLESSINGS FOR YOU

  • YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN IT; IT'S JUST

  • THE GOODNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:43:43.110 --> 00:43:44.130
  • IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN
  • 00:43:44.130 --> 00:43:45.020
  • YOU'RE OUT OF SEASON.
  • 00:43:45.020 --> 00:43:46.060
  • YOU DIDN'T SEE IT COMING,

  • SEASON AND OUT OF SEASON."
  • 00:44:00.260 --> 00:44:03.230
  • HE WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:44:03.230 --> 00:44:04.280
  • MINISTERING, BUT THE PRINCIPLE
  • 00:44:04.280 --> 00:44:06.120
  • IS STILL TRUE.

  • YOU'RE NOT AT PEACE WITH GOD.
  • 00:45:35.180 --> 00:45:37.010
  • YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHERE
  • 00:45:37.010 --> 00:45:38.020
  • YOU'D SPEND ETERNITY.
  • 00:45:38.020 --> 00:45:39.030
