  • SOMETHING, LIKE YOU DID SOMETHING TO THE SUN, AND
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:11:00.140
  • THE SUN IS TRYING TO GET YOU BACK ALL SUMMER LONG.
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:02.120

  • OKAY WHEN THERE'S JUST ONE GAME.
  • 00:11:08.110 --> 00:11:10.180
  • THE PROBLEM IS THAT AT THE END OF EVERY SEASON
  • 00:11:10.200 --> 00:11:13.120

  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.230
  • REALLY YOU'RE WONDERING IF IT'S EVER OKAY TO PRAY

  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:52.030
  • I WILL NEVER CONFIRM NOR DENY THAT I HAVE EVER
  • 00:11:52.050 --> 00:11:53.160
  • DONE THAT.

  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:11:55.080 --> 00:11:57.010
  • BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT WE WERE SITTING OUT THERE
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.270
  • AT A TOURNAMENT, THIS WAS SEVERAL YEARS AGO, SUN
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:01.110
  • WAS BLAZING.
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:03.100
  • WE WERE SO EXCITED FOR THE LUNCH BREAK JUST
  • 00:12:03.120 --> 00:12:04.270
  • BECAUSE THAT MEANT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO GO TO A
  • 00:12:04.290 --> 00:12:07.060
  • RESTAURANT WHERE THERE WOULD BE AIR-CONDITIONING
  • 00:12:07.080 --> 00:12:09.020
  • AND ICE WATER THAT ACTUALLY HAD ICE IN IT.
  • 00:12:09.040 --> 00:12:10.260
  • WE GOT REFRESHED, WE CAME BACK, WE DROVE OUR
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:13.190
  • SUV INTO THE PARK LOT, OPENED UP THE BACK OF THE
  • 00:12:13.210 --> 00:12:16.030
  • SUV SO WE COULD PULL OUT ALL THE GEAR WE NEEDED TO
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:18.170
  • GO TO THE NEXT GAME IN THE TOURNAMENT.
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:21.060
  • WE WERE THREE DAYS INTO THE TOURNAMENT, HOT,
  • 00:12:21.080 --> 00:12:23.020
  • SWEATY, THEY WERE DOING WELL.
  • 00:12:23.040 --> 00:12:25.100
  • WE WERE TRYING TO BE EXCITED ABOUT IT, READY
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:27.020
  • FOR THE NEXT TIME.
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:29.030
  • I WAS WALKING BEHIND MY SON TO GET FROM WHERE WE
  • 00:12:29.050 --> 00:12:31.140
  • HAD PARKED THE CAR OVER TOWARD THE DID YOU GO OUT
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:33.230
  • WHERE THE NEXT GAME WAS GOING TO BE PLAYED, SO I
  • 00:12:33.250 --> 00:12:36.160
  • GATHERED UP ALL THE STUFF, YOU KNOW, THE ICE
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:38.290
  • CHEST THAT YOU HAVE AND THE UMBRELLA THAT YOU
  • 00:12:39.010 --> 00:12:41.170
  • MIGHT HAVE TO GO OVER YOUR HEAD AND THE WATER
  • 00:12:41.190 --> 00:12:43.260
  • BOTTLES, THE BACK PACKS, THE BASEBALLS, THE
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:47.010
  • MITTS, ALL THAT STUFF, AND I WAS FOLLOWING
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:49.050
  • BEHIND MY SON.
  • 00:12:49.070 --> 00:12:51.000
  • MY SECOND SON JERRY JUNIOR IS A FAIRLY
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.160
  • GREGARIOUS PERSONALITY.
  • 00:12:52.180 --> 00:12:54.130
  • HE'S OUTGOING.
  • 00:12:54.150 --> 00:12:56.040
  • HE'S EXCITED FOR A CHALLENGE.
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:12:58.110
  • SO I COULD SEE THAT IN HIS STEP AS I FOLLOWED
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:13:00.160
  • BEHIND HIM.
  • 00:13:00.180 --> 00:13:02.000
  • I COULD SEE A SKIP IN HIS STEP.
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:03.180
  • HIS CHIN WAS UP.
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:05.100
  • HIS SHOULDERS WERE BACK.
  • 00:13:05.120 --> 00:13:07.100
  • HE WAS EXCITED ABOUT THE NEXT GAME.
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:09.200
  • AND I GOT TO TELL YOU HE'S PRETTY GOOD IN BASEBALL.
  • 00:13:09.220 --> 00:13:12.000
  • HE HAS A NATURAL KNACK FOR IT.
  • 00:13:12.020 --> 00:13:13.250
  • I REMEMBER AT TEN YEARS OLD WAS THE FIRST TIME HE
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:15.160
  • GOT A GOOD HIT AND SENT IT SAILING OVER THE FENCE
  • 00:13:15.180 --> 00:13:17.110
  • LINE AT TEN YEARS OLD.
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:19.160
  • AND I THINK IT'S PARTLY BECAUSE OF HIS SIZE, JUST
  • 00:13:19.180 --> 00:13:21.180
  • A LOT OF POWER BEHIND HIS SWING, GREAT AS A
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:23.250
  • FIRST BASEMAN.
  • 00:13:23.270 --> 00:13:26.000
  • SO WE WERE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT HIS SUCCESS IN BASEBALL.
  • 00:13:26.020 --> 00:13:27.200
  • AND I WATCHED HIM AS HE KIND OF HOPPED AND
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:30.090
  • SKIPPED OVER THE NEXT GAME, JUST EXCITED ABOUT
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:32.190
  • THE NEXT CHALLENGE IN THE TOURNAMENT.
  • 00:13:32.210 --> 00:13:34.280
  • BUT BECAUSE I WAS FOLLOWING BEHIND HIM I
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:37.090
  • HAD MY EYES GLUED ON HIM, AND I COULD SEE WHEN
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:39.180
  • SOMETHING CHANGED.
  • 00:13:39.200 --> 00:13:42.190
  • I COULD SEE THAT AS WE TOOK THE SHORT WALK FROM
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:45.070
  • WHERE WE PARKED THE CAR OVER TO THE DUGOUT, I
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:47.260
  • COULD SEE THAT HIS SHOULDERS STARTED TO
  • 00:13:47.280 --> 00:13:50.020
  • HUNCH OVER AND HIS HEAD HUNG DOWN.
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:52.110
  • I COULD SEE THAT THAT SKIP THAT HAD BEEN IN HIS
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:54.220
  • STEP HAD CHANGED.
  • 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:57.150
  • HE WAS KIND OF WALKING LIKE HE WAS NERVOUS.
  • 00:13:57.170 --> 00:13:59.080
  • HE WAS WRINGING HIS HANDS A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:01.130
  • I SAW THAT HE WAS LOOKING AROUND, HIS EYES DARTING
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:03.090
  • AND LOOKING A LITTLE BIT SKETCHY.
  • 00:14:03.110 --> 00:14:05.140
  • I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BOY.
  • 00:14:05.160 --> 00:14:07.200
  • IT WAS A SHORT WALK FROM WHERE WE PARKED THE CAR
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:09.280
  • OVER TO THE DID YOU GO OUT, AND ALL THE SUDDEN
  • 00:14:10.000 --> 00:14:12.100
  • HIS COUNTENANCE HAD COMPLETELY CHANGED, SO I
  • 00:14:12.120 --> 00:14:14.160
  • STARTED LOOKING AROUND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:16.180
  • WAS GOING ON.
  • 00:14:16.200 --> 00:14:18.200
  • WHY DID HE LOOK SO INSECURE AND FEARFUL
  • 00:14:18.220 --> 00:14:20.000
  • ALL THE SUDDEN?
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:22.060
  • I REALIZED AS WE WERE GOING TOWARD THE DUGOUT
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:24.160
  • WE WERE WALKING PAST SOME KIDS FROM ANOTHER TEAM.
  • 00:14:24.180 --> 00:14:26.270
  • THEY WERE ALL LAYING ON THE GRASS UNDERNEATH THE
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:29.220
  • SHADE OF AN OAK TREE GETTING READY FOR THE NEXT GAME.
  • 00:14:29.240 --> 00:14:32.060
  • AS I PASSED THEM I COULD SEE THIS WAS THE TEAM WE
  • 00:14:32.080 --> 00:14:34.090
  • WERE ABOUT TO PLAY NEXT, KEPT WALKING AND I KEPT
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:36.200
  • GETTING A LOOK AT THESE BOYS, AND WHEN I LOOKED
  • 00:14:36.220 --> 00:14:38.200
  • AT THEM I REALIZED WHAT MY SON'S PROBLEM WAS.
  • 00:14:38.220 --> 00:14:43.010
  • WE HAD FACED THIS TEAM BEFORE.
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:46.200
  • WE HAD FACED THEM EARLIER IN THE SEASON, AND WHEN
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:49.080
  • THIS TEAM HAD PLAYED MY SON'S TEAM EARLIER IN THE
  • 00:14:49.100 --> 00:14:51.290
  • SEASON, THEY HAD ANNIHILATED US.
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:56.020
  • IT HAD BEEN A COMPLETE EMBARRASSMENT,
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:57.140
  • A COMPLETE UPSET.
  • 00:14:57.160 --> 00:14:58.250
  • THIS TEAM RIGHT HERE, Y'ALL, THEY WERE SERIOUS
  • 00:14:58.270 --> 00:15:01.090
  • BASEBALL PLAYERS, BUT WE HAD TO WALK RIGHT BY THEM
  • 00:15:01.110 --> 00:15:03.270
  • TO GET TO THE DUGOUT.
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:05.220
  • AS WE WALKED PAST, THERE WERE TWO PLAYERS, THEY
  • 00:15:05.240 --> 00:15:07.180
  • WERE TALKING TO EACH OTHER.
  • 00:15:07.200 --> 00:15:09.090
  • ONE WAS WHISPERING TO THE OTHER.
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:11.000
  • I THINK HE THOUGHT HE WAS WHISPERING, BUT WE COULD
  • 00:15:11.020 --> 00:15:12.130
  • HEAR HIM.
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:14.070
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:15:14.090 --> 00:15:17.000
  • HE LEANED OVER TO THE OTHER ONE, AND HE SAID,
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:18.210
  • "THERE GOES THAT BIG KID FROM THE RED SOX TEAM.
  • 00:15:18.230 --> 00:15:20.150
  • IS HE THE ONE THAT HIT THE BALL AND IT WENT OVER
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:22.030
  • THE FENCE?"
  • 00:15:22.050 --> 00:15:23.180
  • "YEAH, HE WAS THE ONE AT FIRST BASE, THE ONE THAT
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:25.260
  • CAUGHT ANY OF THE OUTS THAT WE GOT IN THE GAME.
  • 00:15:25.280 --> 00:15:27.100
  • THAT WAS HIM."
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:28.200
  • "SO THAT'S JERRY SHIRER?"

  • WHEN MY BOY HEARD HIS NAME CROSS THE LIPS OF
  • 00:15:33.220 --> 00:15:36.110
  • THE OPPOSING TEAM MEMBERS, THOSE SHOULDERS
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:39.020
  • THAT HAD BEEN HANGING DOWN ALL THE SUDDEN I
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:41.150
  • WATCHED THEM POP BACK AGAIN.
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:44.200
  • I WATCHED HIS CHIN GO UP.
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:47.150
  • I WATCHED HIM GET A LITTLE SWAG BACK IN HIS
  • 00:15:47.170 --> 00:15:49.270
  • STEP AS HE HEADED TOWARD THE DUGOUT.

  • BEFORE THE GAME STARTED.

  • IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE CHALLENGE GOES AWAY.

  • IT MEANS THAT IN THE FACE OF IT YOU'RE DIFFERENT.

  • LIVES, WHAT A TRAGEDY IT WOULD BE FOR US TO WALK
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:57.190
  • OUT OF HERE AND STILL LIVE LIKE WE WERE BEFORE
  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:18:00.200
  • WE CAME THROUGH THESE DOORS.
  • 00:18:00.220 --> 00:18:03.140
  • SO WHAT THE ENEMY WILL DO IS SCATTER CHALLENGE IN
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:07.050
  • FRONT OF YOUR LIFE, BECAUSE LISTEN, YOU'RE
  • 00:18:07.070 --> 00:18:09.020
  • GOING BACK HOME TO CHALLENGE.
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:11.080
  • Y'ALL DO KNOW WE'RE GOING BACK HOME IN A LITTLE
  • 00:18:11.100 --> 00:18:14.060
  • WHILE, RIGHT?
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:16.180
  • AND DON'T WE WISH WE COULD WAKE UP TO THIS
  • 00:18:16.200 --> 00:18:18.200
  • EVERY SINGLE DAY?
  • 00:18:18.220 --> 00:18:21.030
  • [ CHEERS ]
  • 00:18:21.050 --> 00:18:22.220
  • DON'T WE WISH THAT WE COULD HAVE GOD'S WORD
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:24.180
  • SPOKEN OVER OUR LIVES WITH THIS MUCH AUTHORITY
  • 00:18:24.200 --> 00:18:26.210
  • AND POWER EVERY SINGLE DAY AND BE IN THE
  • 00:18:26.230 --> 00:18:28.170
  • PRESENCE OF LEADERS WHO CAN LEAD US INTO THE

  • LIKE THIS, BUT THE REALITY IS WE'RE GOING
  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:33.270
  • BACK HOME.
  • 00:18:33.290 --> 00:18:35.260
  • THE CHALLENGES OF YOUR UNIVERSITY CAMPUS, THE
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:38.040
  • CHALLENGES OF YOUR HOME, YOUR RELATIONSHIPS, YOUR
  • 00:18:38.060 --> 00:18:40.070
  • FRIENDSHIPS, ON YOUR JOB, THOSE CHALLENGES WILL BE
  • 00:18:40.090 --> 00:18:42.200
  • SPRAWLED OUT IN FRONT OF YOU WHEN YOU GET HOME,
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:44.280
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, WHAT THE ENEMY
  • 00:18:45.000 --> 00:18:48.000
  • HOPES IS THAT THE SITE OF THEM WILL CAUSE YOU TO
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:50.250
  • SHRINK BACK IN SO MUCH FEAR AND INSECURITY THAT
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:53.240
  • YOU'LL NEVER STEP UP TO THE PLATE OF BEING WHO
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:56.030
  • GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:58.000
  • LISTEN, IF YOU'VE PLACED FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, I
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:19:00.170
  • HOPE YOU KNOW THAT THE ENEMY UNDERSTANDS HE
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:03.050
  • CANNOT DESTROY YOU.
  • 00:19:03.070 --> 00:19:05.090
  • HE KNOWS HIS CHANCES ARE OVER OF
  • 00:19:05.110 --> 00:19:07.180
  • DESTROYING YOU, SO HE IS GOING TO SPEND THE REST
  • 00:19:07.200 --> 00:19:09.190
  • OF HIS TIME AND THE REST OF HIS ENERGY JUST TRYING
  • 00:19:09.210 --> 00:19:12.220
  • TO DISCOURAGE YOU, TRYING TO DISTRACT YOU SO THAT
  • 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:16.080
  • YOU'LL SHRINK BACK IN FEAR AND INSECURITY AND
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:18.170
  • NOT STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND BE WHO
  • 00:19:18.190 --> 00:19:22.060
  • GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:19:22.080 --> 00:19:25.130
  • IT IS, AT LEAST IN PART, TO THIS END THAT THE
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:28.120
  • APOSTLE PAUL GIVES US A PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE
  • 00:19:28.140 --> 00:19:30.090
  • THAT HAS BECOME A LIFELINE FOR ME.
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:34.130
  • IN FACT, I WAS TALKING WITH CHRISTINE YESTERDAY.
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:38.180
  • CHRIS AND I HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR A VERY
  • 00:19:38.200 --> 00:19:40.090
  • LONG TIME, VERY CLOSE FRIENDS, AND SHE WAS
  • 00:19:40.110 --> 00:19:43.030
  • ASKING ME WHAT I WAS GONNA SPEAK ON, AND I HAD
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:44.240
  • SEVERAL THOUGHTS OF DIRECTIONS THAT I WAS
  • 00:19:44.260 --> 00:19:47.190
  • LEANING TOWARD, BUT IN THE END, AS WE WERE
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:52.030
  • TALKING, THE QUESTION CAME UP IF THERE WAS ONLY
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:55.110
  • ONE THING YOU COULD SAY TO THEM, IF THERE'S ONLY
  • 00:19:55.130 --> 00:19:59.040
  • ONE MESSAGE THAT YOU EVER HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO
  • 00:19:59.060 --> 00:20:01.270
  • TELL THESE STUDENTS, THESE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:20:01.290 --> 00:20:05.290
  • WILL BE GATHERED TOGETHER ON THIS OCCASION, WHAT
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:08.020
  • WOULD THAT MESSAGE BE?
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:10.090
  • AND THERE WAS ONE THING THAT IMMEDIATELY POPPED
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:12.120
  • INTO MY HEART AND MY MIND FOR YOU AT THE END OF
  • 00:20:12.140 --> 00:20:15.040
  • THIS YEAR'S PASSION CONFERENCE.
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:19.030
  • THE WORDS OF THE APOSTLE PAUL.
  • 00:20:19.050 --> 00:20:22.030
  • HE WRITES THEM IN THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS. LISTEN.
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:26.230
  • LET ME JUST TELL YOU QUICKLY BEFORE I READ

  • BELIEVERS THAT NOW DISCIPLE US AND HELP US
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:49.180
  • TO MATURE AS BELIEVERS AND AS THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:20:49.200 --> 00:20:52.190
  • AND SCHOLARS SAY THAT OF ALL PAUL'S WRITING,
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:54.270
  • REALLY THE CREAM OF THE CROP, THE CHERRY ON TOP

  • OF THE CAKE IS EPHESIANS BECAUSE IN THE BOOK OF

  • HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE YOU STEP UP TO THE PLATE,
  • 00:21:06.130 --> 00:21:08.120
  • RISE TO THE OCCASION OF WHO YOU'VE BEEN RECREATED
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:11.160
  • IN CHRIST TO BECOME.
  • 00:21:11.180 --> 00:21:12.250

  • HOPE OF HIS CALLING IN CHOOSING YOU.

  • BEEN GIVEN TO YOU.
  • 00:21:44.080 --> 00:21:45.210
  • HE WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT IF YOU'VE BEEN REJECTED
  • 00:21:45.230 --> 00:21:47.250
  • BY EVERYBODY ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN HANDPICKED,
  • 00:21:47.270 --> 00:21:50.140
  • CHOSEN AND ADOPTED BY THE ONE TRUE GOD.
  • 00:21:50.160 --> 00:21:53.160
  • HE WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT IF YOU DUG A PIT OF SIN
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:56.170
  • FOR YOURSELF THAT IS SO DEEP YOU CAN'T FIND YOUR
  • 00:21:56.190 --> 00:21:59.110
  • WAY OUT OF IT, THAT THE MERCY OF GOD IS SO GREAT
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:02.180
  • AND SO GRAND THAT IT CAN REACH DOWN INTO ANY PIT
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:06.050
  • AND SNATCH YOU UP OUT OF IT ONCE AND FOR ALL.
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:08.240
  • IN FACT, PAUL GETS SO WORKED UP THAT BY THE
  • 00:22:08.260 --> 00:22:12.020
  • TIME HE GETS TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FIRST
  • 00:22:12.040 --> 00:22:14.040
  • CHAPTER, HE BURSTS OUT IN A PRAYER AND HE SAYS, I'M
  • 00:22:14.060 --> 00:22:17.080
  • PRAYING THAT THE EYES OF YOUR HEART WOULD BE OPEN
  • 00:22:17.100 --> 00:22:21.130
  • SO THAT YOU WOULD JUST KNOW WHAT IS THE HOPE
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:23.240
  • OF HIS CALLING IN CHOOSING YOU.
  • 00:22:23.260 --> 00:22:27.220
  • AND AFTER GOING OVER AND OVER AND ON AND ON ABOUT
  • 00:22:27.240 --> 00:22:30.070
  • THE LAVISHNESS, THE RICHNESS, THE GRACE, THE
  • 00:22:30.090 --> 00:22:33.230
  • MERCY, THE GOODNESS, THE ADOPTION THAT HAS BEEN
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:37.000
  • POURED OUT OVER US, THE FORGIVENESS THAT HAS BEEN
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:39.240
  • GRANTED TO US, HE'S TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW
  • 00:22:39.260 --> 00:22:42.110
  • DO I CLOSE THIS LETTER TO MAKE SURE THEY STEP UP TO
  • 00:22:42.130 --> 00:22:45.170
  • THE PLATE. HOW DO I PUT AN EXCLAMATION POINT ON
  • 00:22:45.190 --> 00:22:49.250
  • PASSION 2018 TO MAKE SURE THAT WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN
  • 00:22:49.270 --> 00:22:53.080
  • THEM, THEY DON'T HAND OVER TO THE ENEMY AS
  • 00:22:53.100 --> 00:22:56.010
  • SOON AS THEY WALK OUT THE DOOR.
  • 00:22:56.030 --> 00:22:59.160
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL WRITES THESE WORDS TO US IN
  • 00:22:59.180 --> 00:23:02.250
  • EPHESIANS CHAPTER 6 BEGINNING IN VERSE 10.
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:07.110
  • HE SAYS FINALLY, YOU BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND
  • 00:23:07.130 --> 00:23:14.010
  • IN THE STRENGTH OF HIS MIGHT.
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:16.140
  • HE SAYS PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD SO THAT YOU
  • 00:23:16.160 --> 00:23:20.000
  • MAY BE ABLE TO STAND FIRM AGAINST THE SCHEMES.
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:23.060
  • SOMEBODY SAY SCHEMES.
  • 00:23:23.080 --> 00:23:24.140
  • - AUDIENCE: SCHEMES.
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:25.200
  • - AGAINST THE SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL.
  • 00:23:25.220 --> 00:23:27.090
  • HE SAYS WE WRESTLE NOT, WE STRUGGLE NOT AGAINST
  • 00:23:27.110 --> 00:23:30.080
  • FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST THE RULERS,
  • 00:23:30.100 --> 00:23:33.030
  • AGAINST THE POWERS, AGAINST THE WORLD FORCES
  • 00:23:33.050 --> 00:23:35.070
  • OF THIS DARKNESS, AGAINST THE SPIRITUAL FORCES OF
  • 00:23:35.090 --> 00:23:37.230
  • WICKEDNESS THAT ARE IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES.
  • 00:23:37.250 --> 00:23:40.080
  • HE SAYS SO THEREFORE, YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST GO
  • 00:23:40.100 --> 00:23:42.210
  • AHEAD AND PUT DOWN ALL THE WEAPONS OF THIS WORLD
  • 00:23:42.230 --> 00:23:45.070
  • THAT AREN'T WORKING FOR YOU ANYWAY AND TAKE UP
  • 00:23:45.090 --> 00:23:47.130
  • SOME WEAPONS THAT ACTUALLY HAVE SOME POWER.
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:50.100
  • HE SAYS TAKE UP THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD SO THAT YOU
  • 00:23:50.120 --> 00:23:53.200
  • MAY BE ABLE TO RESIST IN THE EVIL DAY.
  • 00:23:53.220 --> 00:23:56.290
  • AND HAVING DONE EVERYTHING TO STAND FIRM,
  • 00:23:57.010 --> 00:24:00.170
  • HE SAYS, YOU OUGHT TO JUST STAND FIRM THEREFORE.
  • 00:24:00.190 --> 00:24:04.080
  • IN THESE FEW VERSES OF SCRIPTURE, THE APOSTLE
  • 00:24:04.100 --> 00:24:06.240
  • PAUL BEGINS TO INTRODUCE TO US A CONCEPT THAT HAS
  • 00:24:06.260 --> 00:24:10.180
  • NOT BEEN AT LEAST IN THE CONTEXT OF THUS FAR IN
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:14.010
  • CHURCH DEVELOPMENT AT THAT TIME HAD NOT BEEN AS
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:17.040
  • OVERTLY DESCRIBED AS IT IS RIGHT NOW IN PAUL'S
  • 00:24:17.060 --> 00:24:21.220
  • LETTER. HE BRINGS UP THE TOPIC OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 00:24:21.240 --> 00:24:27.140
  • HE SAYS YOU HAVE AN ENEMY. HE SAYS I WANT TO
  • 00:24:27.160 --> 00:24:31.060
  • MAKE SURE THAT IT'S LOUD AND CLEAR.
  • 00:24:31.080 --> 00:24:32.210
  • THERE ARE OTHER PLACES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND
  • 00:24:32.230 --> 00:24:34.110
  • THROUGHOUT THE NEW, Y'ALL, WHERE WE CAN INFER
  • 00:24:34.130 --> 00:24:37.210
  • THAT WE HAVE A SPIRITUAL UNSEEN BATTLE GOING ON,
  • 00:24:37.230 --> 00:24:40.210
  • BUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT AN AUTHOR COMES
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:43.060
  • RIGHT OUT AND SAYS YOU HAVE AN ENEMY, AND HE IS
  • 00:24:43.080 --> 00:24:47.290
  • SCHEMING AGAINST YOU, THAT WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS
  • 00:24:48.010 --> 00:24:51.230
  • PLACE IN JUST A LITTLE WHILE, WHEN I LEAVE THIS
  • 00:24:51.250 --> 00:24:53.270
  • PLACE IN JUST A LITTLE WHILE, YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:24:53.290 --> 00:24:56.060
  • THAT THERE IS AN ENEMY.
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:57.220
  • HE IS AGAINST YOU. HE IS NOT FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:57.240 --> 00:25:00.280
  • HE PLANS TO DO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING IN HIS
  • 00:25:01.000 --> 00:25:03.090
  • POWER TO STIR UP CHALLENGE IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:25:03.110 --> 00:25:06.120
  • ENOUGH TO CAUSE YOU TO SHRINK BACK AND NOT RISE
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:09.130
  • UP AND STAND FIRM IN THE VICTORY THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:25:09.150 --> 00:25:12.040
  • BEEN GIVEN IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:25:12.060 --> 00:25:14.040
  • THAT'S WHY THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS STAND FIRM.
  • 00:25:14.060 --> 00:25:19.010
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN ENEMY.
  • 00:25:19.030 --> 00:25:21.080
  • AN ENEMY THAT WANTS YOU TO THINK THAT JUST
  • 00:25:21.100 --> 00:25:23.090
  • BECAUSE HE IS INVISIBLE, HE IS ALSO FICTIONAL.
  • 00:25:23.110 --> 00:25:27.140
  • HE WANTS TO BE CHALKED UP TO NOTHING MORE THAN A
  • 00:25:27.160 --> 00:25:29.200
  • CARICATURE, A CARTOON PICTURE, A MYTH,
  • 00:25:29.220 --> 00:25:33.120
  • A CHARACTER FOR A KID'S NURSERY RHYME.
  • 00:25:33.140 --> 00:25:36.000
  • HE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THE INFLUENCE
  • 00:25:36.020 --> 00:25:38.250
  • THAT HE HAS OVER YOUR LIFE, POSSIBLY TO CAUSE
  • 00:25:38.270 --> 00:25:42.130
  • YOU TO NEVER WALK INTO THE FULL EXPRESSION OF
  • 00:25:42.150 --> 00:25:45.200
  • GOD'S GRACE AND GOODNESS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:25:45.220 --> 00:25:47.210
  • HE IS SINISTER.
  • 00:25:47.230 --> 00:25:49.040
  • HE IS A MASTER ILLUSIONIST, AND HE IS A
  • 00:25:49.060 --> 00:25:51.210
  • DECEIVER, AND HE HOPES TO CLEVERLY DISGUISE HIMSELF
  • 00:25:51.230 --> 00:25:55.150
  • BEHIND LIFE'S MOST PRESSING PROBLEMS TO
  • 00:25:55.170 --> 00:25:58.040
  • WHERE YOU WILL FORGET HE IS EVEN THERE.
  • 00:25:58.060 --> 00:26:01.070
  • HE WANTS YOU TO POINT FINGERS AT HIM OR HER, AT
  • 00:26:01.090 --> 00:26:04.120
  • YOUR BOSS, AT YOUR PARENT, AT THAT
  • 00:26:04.140 --> 00:26:06.110
  • PARTICULAR PROFESSOR, OR YOUR R.A. IN YOUR DORM.
  • 00:26:06.130 --> 00:26:09.220
  • HE WANTS YOU TO THINK IT'S THAT ADVISOR, OR
  • 00:26:09.240 --> 00:26:12.020
  • IT'S THAT FINANCIAL PROBLEM, ANYTHING FLESH
  • 00:26:12.040 --> 00:26:14.160
  • AND BLOOD BECAUSE HE KNOWS AS LONG AS WE'RE
  • 00:26:14.180 --> 00:26:16.290
  • LOOKING AT THE FLESH AND BLOOD, WE WILL DIRECT ALL
  • 00:26:17.010 --> 00:26:19.200
  • THE WRONG WEAPONS AT THE WRONG CULPRIT.
  • 00:26:19.220 --> 00:26:23.020
  • WE'LL THINK OUR MONEY WILL WORK, WE'LL THINK
  • 00:26:23.040 --> 00:26:24.270
  • OUR RATIONALE AND LOGIC WILL ACTUALLY WORK, WE
  • 00:26:24.290 --> 00:26:28.000
  • THINK THAT THE DIPLOMA WE'RE ABOUT TO ACHIEVE
  • 00:26:28.020 --> 00:26:30.120
  • AND RECEIVE, WE'LL THINK THE DIPLOMA WILL BE WORTH
  • 00:26:30.140 --> 00:26:32.130
  • IT. WE'LL THINK THAT THE CONNECTIONS WILL WORK.
  • 00:26:32.150 --> 00:26:35.140
  • ANYTHING NATURAL CANNOT TAKE CARE OF
  • 00:26:35.160 --> 00:26:38.190
  • THE SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:26:38.210 --> 00:26:41.190
  • WHEN YOUR PROBLEM IS UNSEEN AND SPIRITUAL,
  • 00:26:41.210 --> 00:26:44.080
  • YOU NEED WEAPONS THAT WORK IN THAT REALM.
  • 00:26:44.100 --> 00:26:48.050
  • SO THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW FIRST
  • 00:26:48.070 --> 00:26:50.040
  • OF ALL THAT YOUR ENEMY IS NOT THE PERSON YOU ARE
  • 00:26:50.060 --> 00:26:52.270
  • SITTING NEXT TO TODAY.
  • 00:26:52.290 --> 00:26:55.140
  • THAT YOUR ENEMY IS NOT YOUR PARENT AT HOME.
  • 00:26:55.160 --> 00:26:57.200
  • YOUR ENEMY IS NOT THAT PROFESSOR THAT IS
  • 00:26:57.220 --> 00:26:59.240
  • DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH.
  • 00:26:59.260 --> 00:27:01.090
  • YOUR REAL ENEMY IS NOT YOUR BOSS ON YOUR
  • 00:27:01.110 --> 00:27:03.220
  • PART-TIME JOB. YOUR REAL ENEMY IS UNSEEN.
  • 00:27:03.240 --> 00:27:07.060
  • HE IS HOPING Y'ALL THAT WE WILL FORGET HE'S THERE.
  • 00:27:07.080 --> 00:27:11.020
  • HE IS THE MASTER DECEIVER.
  • 00:27:11.040 --> 00:27:14.110
  • SO THERE'S A LITTLE CHURCH AROUND THE CORNER
  • 00:27:14.130 --> 00:27:15.230
  • FROM MY HOUSE IN DALLAS.
  • 00:27:15.250 --> 00:27:19.000
  • I'VE BEEN TAKING MY KIDS THERE SINCE THEY WERE
  • 00:27:19.020 --> 00:27:20.200
  • LITTLE TO HARVEST FESTIVAL.
  • 00:27:20.220 --> 00:27:23.080
  • THAT'S BASICALLY THIS CHURCH'S ANSWER TO HALLOWEEN.
  • 00:27:23.100 --> 00:27:26.260
  • SO WE WILL GO THERE FOR HARVEST FESTIVAL,
  • 00:27:26.280 --> 00:27:29.040
  • AND THIS CHURCH HAS A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED
  • 00:27:29.060 --> 00:27:31.210
  • TRUNK OR TREAT. DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT I MEAN
  • 00:27:31.230 --> 00:27:34.090
  • WHEN I SAY TRUNK OR TREAT? [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:34.110 --> 00:27:37.160
  • OKAY. SO TRUNK OR TREAT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NOT
  • 00:27:37.180 --> 00:27:40.290
  • CLEAR ON WHAT THAT IS, THAT'S WHEN MEMBERS OF
  • 00:27:41.010 --> 00:27:42.260
  • THE CONGREGATION VOLUNTEER.
  • 00:27:42.280 --> 00:27:45.050
  • THEY VOLUNTEER TO BRING THEIR CARS INTO THE
  • 00:27:45.070 --> 00:27:46.220
  • PARKING LOT ON HARVEST FESTIVAL NIGHT SO THEY
  • 00:27:46.240 --> 00:27:49.030
  • CAN OPEN UP THE TRUNK OF THEIR CAR.
  • 00:27:49.050 --> 00:27:50.260
  • SO YOU GO INTO THE PARKING LOT, ALL THE
  • 00:27:50.280 --> 00:27:52.170
  • TRUNKS ARE OPEN, AND EACH PERSON HAS BASICALLY
  • 00:27:52.190 --> 00:27:54.260
  • CRAFTED A CARNIVAL GAME OR SOME SORT OF FAIR GAME
  • 00:27:54.280 --> 00:27:57.030
  • OUT OF THE TRUNK OF THE CAR.
  • 00:27:57.050 --> 00:27:58.220
  • SO KIDS LINE UP ONE TRUNK AFTER THE OTHER, THEY
  • 00:27:58.240 --> 00:28:00.200
  • PLAY WHATEVER THE GAME IS, AND MOST OF THE TIME,
  • 00:28:00.220 --> 00:28:02.180
  • WHETHER THEY WIN OR LOSE, THE PERSON THAT OWNS THAT
  • 00:28:02.200 --> 00:28:05.140
  • CAR GIVES THEM A WHOLE BUNCH OF CANDY AND
  • 00:28:05.160 --> 00:28:07.050
  • SENDS THEM HOME. WE'RE ALWAYS SO GRATEFUL.
  • 00:28:07.070 --> 00:28:11.050
  • SO WE STAND IN LINE ONE CAR AFTER THE OTHER
  • 00:28:11.070 --> 00:28:14.090
  • WAITING ON BAGS OF CANDY.
  • 00:28:14.110 --> 00:28:16.060
  • AND WE PLAY ONE GAME AFTER THE OTHER.
  • 00:28:16.080 --> 00:28:17.220
  • A FEW YEARS AGO, THE BIGGEST LINE, THE LONGEST
  • 00:28:17.240 --> 00:28:22.050
  • LINE AT THE CARNIVAL WASN'T BEHIND A CAR;
  • 00:28:22.070 --> 00:28:25.000
  • IT WAS BEHIND THE BED OF A TRUCK.
  • 00:28:25.020 --> 00:28:26.250
  • IT WAS REALLY CLEVER.
  • 00:28:26.270 --> 00:28:28.270
  • A HUGE TRUCK HAD BEEN PARKED IN THE PARKING
  • 00:28:28.290 --> 00:28:32.070
  • LOT, AND THEY PUT A STEPLADDER RIGHT AT THE
  • 00:28:32.090 --> 00:28:35.020
  • BED OF THE TRUCK SO THAT A KID COULD WALK INTO THE
  • 00:28:35.040 --> 00:28:37.060
  • BED OF THE TRUCK.
  • 00:28:37.080 --> 00:28:38.130
  • THEY HAD ATTACHED A TABLETOP, WHICH WAS ABOUT
  • 00:28:38.150 --> 00:28:40.130
  • THE SAME SIZE AS THE BED OF THE TRUCK.
  • 00:28:40.150 --> 00:28:42.070
  • THEY HAD ATTACHED IT TO THE SIDE OF THE TRUCK,
  • 00:28:42.090 --> 00:28:44.070
  • CUT SIX HOLES INTO IT, PUT FABRIC, DRAPERY OVER
  • 00:28:44.090 --> 00:28:47.130
  • IT, AND OUT FROM THOSE HOLES EVERY FEW SECONDS A
  • 00:28:47.150 --> 00:28:49.250
  • PUPPET WOULD POP THROUGH.
  • 00:28:49.270 --> 00:28:52.120
  • THEY GAVE THE KID A HUGE PLASTIC MALLET, AND THE
  • 00:28:52.140 --> 00:28:54.260
  • JOB OF THE KID WAS TO RUN UP AND DOWN THE INSIDE OF
  • 00:28:54.280 --> 00:28:58.010
  • THE BED OF THE TRUCK AS HE TRIED TO HIT THE
  • 00:28:58.030 --> 00:29:00.020
  • PUPPETS ON TOP OF THE HEAD.
  • 00:29:00.040 --> 00:29:01.230
  • IT WAS A HOMEMADE WHAC-A-MOLE GAME IS WHAT IT
  • 00:29:01.250 --> 00:29:03.170
  • WAS. AND IT WAS THE LONGEST LINE.
  • 00:29:03.190 --> 00:29:05.250
  • ME AND JUDE, HE WAS LIKE FOUR, JUDE IS MY
  • 00:29:05.270 --> 00:29:07.290
  • YOUNGEST. ME AND JUDE WERE STANDING IN LINE,
  • 00:29:08.010 --> 00:29:10.020
  • WE'RE WAITING OUR TURN.
  • 00:29:10.040 --> 00:29:11.130
  • BEHIND US IS ANOTHER KID. HE'S WITH HIS MOM.
  • 00:29:11.150 --> 00:29:14.250
  • HE'S PROBABLY FOUR OR FIVE AS WELL, AND Y'ALL
  • 00:29:14.270 --> 00:29:16.280
  • HE WAS HYSTERICAL BECAUSE HE WAS ANNOYED AT THIS
  • 00:29:17.000 --> 00:29:20.080
  • WHOLE SITUATION, AND HE WAS MAKING SURE SHE KNEW
  • 00:29:20.100 --> 00:29:22.050
  • IT. HE WAS, FIRST OF ALL, ANNOYED BECAUSE, MOM,
  • 00:29:22.070 --> 00:29:24.290
  • I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I GOT TO STAND IN THIS LONG
  • 00:29:25.010 --> 00:29:26.270
  • LINE. DIDN'T WE COME TO THE CARNIVAL TO HAVE FUN?
  • 00:29:26.290 --> 00:29:28.200
  • THIS AIN'T FUN. STANDING IN LINE AIN'T FUN.
  • 00:29:28.220 --> 00:29:30.070
  • I HAVE AN IDEA, MOM. HOW ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:29:30.090 --> 00:29:31.230
  • HOW ABOUT I PLAY ALL THE OTHER GAMES WHILE YOU
  • 00:29:31.250 --> 00:29:33.230
  • STAND IN LINE AND HOLD OUR PLACE, SO WHEN IT'S
  • 00:29:33.250 --> 00:29:35.070
  • OUR TURN, I'LL COME BACK AND JOIN YOU IN LINE.
  • 00:29:35.090 --> 00:29:39.050
  • BUT HE WAS NOT ONLY ANNOYED ABOUT THE LINE,
  • 00:29:39.070 --> 00:29:40.260
  • THE FOUR YEAR OLD WAS ALSO ANNOYED BECAUSE,
  • 00:29:40.280 --> 00:29:43.080
  • MOM, I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND THIS GAME.
  • 00:29:43.100 --> 00:29:45.010
  • WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I WASTE ALL MY ENERGY
  • 00:29:45.030 --> 00:29:46.220
  • RUNNING UP AND DOWN THE INSIDE OF THAT TRUCK TO
  • 00:29:46.240 --> 00:29:48.110
  • HIT THE PUPPETS ON THE TOP OF THE HEAD IF WHEN
  • 00:29:48.130 --> 00:29:50.050
  • I HIT THEM ON THE HEAD THEY'RE GONNA DISAPPEAR
  • 00:29:50.070 --> 00:29:52.020
  • BUT JUST COME BACK AS SOON AS I HIT THEM ON THE
  • 00:29:52.040 --> 00:29:54.070
  • HEAD. WHAT'S THE POINT OF THIS GAME!
  • 00:29:54.090 --> 00:29:57.070
  • SO EVERYBODY IN THE LINE IS LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY
  • 00:29:57.090 --> 00:29:59.160
  • BECAUSE THIS FOUR YEAR OLD, THIS FIVE YEAR OLD
  • 00:29:59.180 --> 00:30:01.200
  • IS TALKING SO MUCH ABOUT ALL HIS FRUSTRATIONS.
  • 00:30:01.220 --> 00:30:04.170
  • FINALLY, HE GETS SO FRUSTRATED THAT HE WORKS
  • 00:30:04.190 --> 00:30:09.020
  • HIMSELF INTO A FRENZY TO WHERE ALL I SAW OUT OF MY
  • 00:30:09.040 --> 00:30:12.020
  • PERIPHERAL VISION WAS A FOUR YEAR OLD FLASH
  • 00:30:12.040 --> 00:30:14.140
  • RUNNING PAST ME AS HE RAN FORWARD, AND HE GRABBED
  • 00:30:14.160 --> 00:30:17.120
  • THE DRAPERY OFF OF THE TABLETOP AND PULLED IT
  • 00:30:17.140 --> 00:30:19.270
  • CLEAN OFF. UNDERNEATH, THERE WERE THREE ADULTS
  • 00:30:19.290 --> 00:30:22.250
  • WITH PUPPETS ON EACH HAND.
  • 00:30:22.270 --> 00:30:25.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:25.020 --> 00:30:30.000
  • THAT DAY WE ALL GOT A GOOD LAUGH, BUT WE ALSO
  • 00:30:30.020 --> 00:30:31.230
  • GOT A GOOD LESSON.
  • 00:30:31.250 --> 00:30:34.080
  • THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING YOU CAN'T SEE
  • 00:30:34.100 --> 00:30:37.070
  • INFLUENCING WHAT YOU CAN.
  • 00:30:37.090 --> 00:30:39.210
  • AND IF YOU SPEND ALL OF YOUR TIME, YOUR ENERGY,
  • 00:30:39.230 --> 00:30:42.080
  • YOUR EFFORT TRYING TO HIT AT WHAT YOU SEE POPPING
  • 00:30:42.100 --> 00:30:45.090
  • UP IN YOUR LIFE, YOU'RE GONNA BE SO FRUSTRATED
  • 00:30:45.110 --> 00:30:47.150
  • AND BY THE WAY EXHAUSTED BECAUSE AS SOON AS YOU
  • 00:30:47.170 --> 00:30:50.070
  • TAKE CARE OF ONE THING, ANOTHER ONE IS COMING
  • 00:30:50.090 --> 00:30:52.150
  • BACK. UNLESS YOU DO WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS,
  • 00:30:52.170 --> 00:30:55.280
  • PULL BACK THE CURTAIN AND LET THE ENEMY KNOW
  • 00:30:56.000 --> 00:30:58.150
  • WE'VE GOT OUR EYES ON YOU.
  • 00:30:58.170 --> 00:31:00.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:31:00.250 --> 00:31:03.020
  • AND WE'RE GONNA USE SOME WEAPONS THAT ACTUALLY
  • 00:31:03.040 --> 00:31:04.260
  • WORK BACK THERE BEHIND THE CURTAIN.
  • 00:31:04.280 --> 00:31:07.190
  • Y'ALL, I WISH I HAD LEARNED THIS WHEN I WAS
  • 00:31:07.210 --> 00:31:09.100
  • 18, 19, 20, 21 YEARS OLD THAT THAT PERSON, THAT
  • 00:31:09.120 --> 00:31:13.140
  • PHYSICAL PROBLEM ISN'T REALLY WHERE YOU NEED TO
  • 00:31:13.160 --> 00:31:15.270
  • INVEST YOUR ENERGY. PULL BACK THE CURTAIN.
  • 00:31:15.290 --> 00:31:19.100
  • USE THE WEAPONS THAT ACTUALLY HAVE POWER.
  • 00:31:19.120 --> 00:31:23.070
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT THE TACTICS
  • 00:31:23.090 --> 00:31:26.100
  • OF THE ENEMY ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS, SO HE USES A
  • 00:31:26.120 --> 00:31:28.280
  • SPECIFIC WORD TO DESCRIBE THEM.
  • 00:31:29.000 --> 00:31:30.290
  • HE SAYS SCHEMES.
  • 00:31:31.010 --> 00:31:35.050
  • LISTEN TO ME. HE KNOWS YOUR WEAKNESSES.
  • 00:31:35.070 --> 00:31:37.220
  • HE KNOWS HOW TO DANGLE WHAT CARROT AT THE RIGHT
  • 00:31:37.240 --> 00:31:40.010
  • TIME IN THE RIGHT WAY TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE
  • 00:31:40.030 --> 00:31:42.280
  • SNAGGED IN PARTICULAR.
  • 00:31:43.000 --> 00:31:45.100
  • HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED OR FOUND CURIOUS THAT
  • 00:31:45.120 --> 00:31:47.280
  • PARTICULAR CARROT IS ALWAYS DANGLED IN FRONT
  • 00:31:48.000 --> 00:31:50.030
  • OF YOU WHEN YOU ARE MOST TIRED, WHEN YOU ARE MOST
  • 00:31:50.050 --> 00:31:54.010
  • VULNERABLE, WHEN YOU HAPPEN TO BE MOST HUNGRY,
  • 00:31:54.030 --> 00:31:57.240
  • MOST ALONE, MOST WEAK.
  • 00:31:57.260 --> 00:32:00.220
  • THAT PARTICULAR CARROT, THE ONE THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:32:00.240 --> 00:32:02.160
  • MESS WITH YOUR FRIEND BECAUSE IT'S NOT HER
  • 00:32:02.180 --> 00:32:04.080
  • DEAL, IT'S NOT HIS DEAL, HE'S NOT ENTICED BY THAT,
  • 00:32:04.100 --> 00:32:07.080
  • BUT THE ONE THAT ENTICES YOU ALWAYS SHOWS UP AT
  • 00:32:07.100 --> 00:32:10.060
  • THE RIGHT TIME. Y'ALL,
  • 00:32:10.080 --> 00:32:11.270
  • THAT'S NOT COINCIDENCE, THAT'S A SCHEME.
  • 00:32:11.290 --> 00:32:15.260
  • THE ENEMY IS TRYING TO DERAIL YOU.
  • 00:32:15.280 --> 00:32:17.200
  • HE'S TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON'T WALK IN A
  • 00:32:17.220 --> 00:32:20.020
  • MANNER WORTHY, PLEASING OF THE LORD, THAT YOU
  • 00:32:20.040 --> 00:32:22.150
  • COME IN HERE, BUT THAT YOU DON'T GO OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:32:22.170 --> 00:32:25.240
  • A PURPOSE TO LIVE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:32:25.260 --> 00:32:29.260
  • HE'S TRYING TO TRIP YOU UP.
  • 00:32:29.280 --> 00:32:32.150
  • NOT ONLY FOR HIS OWN BENEFIT BUT BECAUSE HE
  • 00:32:32.170 --> 00:32:34.010
  • DOES NOT WANT YOU HAVING ACCESS TO EVERYTHING THAT
  • 00:32:34.030 --> 00:32:36.270
  • YOU ARE PRIVY TO AS A RIGHTFUL HEIR TO THE
  • 00:32:36.290 --> 00:32:40.090
  • KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
  • 00:32:40.110 --> 00:32:43.080
  • IT'S A SCHEME.
  • 00:32:43.100 --> 00:32:45.230
  • SO IF HE'S GOT TACTICS, WE NEED TACTICS.
  • 00:32:45.250 --> 00:32:50.060
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL OUTLINES THEM FOR US.
  • 00:32:50.080 --> 00:32:52.000
  • I'M JUST GONNA READ THEM TO YOU BECAUSE HE SAYS IN
  • 00:32:52.020 --> 00:32:53.290
  • VERSE 13 YOU NEED THE FULL ARMOR, AND HERE'S
  • 00:32:54.010 --> 00:32:56.100
  • WHAT THEY ARE, VERSE 14.
  • 00:32:56.120 --> 00:32:58.090
  • HE SAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOUR LOINS ARE
  • 00:32:58.110 --> 00:33:00.100
  • GIRDED WITH TRUTH.
  • 00:33:00.120 --> 00:33:01.220
  • THEN SAID YOU NEED A BREASTPLATE, AND THE
  • 00:33:01.240 --> 00:33:03.170
  • BREASTPLATE IS CALLED RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:33:03.190 --> 00:33:05.250
  • THEN HE SAYS IN VERSE 15, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE
  • 00:33:05.270 --> 00:33:08.000
  • SOMETHING FOR YOUR FEET IF YOU WANT ANY HOPE OF
  • 00:33:08.020 --> 00:33:10.170
  • BEING ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD SUCCESSFULLY, SO
  • 00:33:10.190 --> 00:33:13.060
  • YOUR FEET NEED TO BE SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF
  • 00:33:13.080 --> 00:33:15.240
  • THE GOSPEL OF PEACE.
  • 00:33:15.260 --> 00:33:17.130
  • AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT HE SAYS THERE ARE SOME
  • 00:33:17.150 --> 00:33:19.230
  • FLAMING MISSILES OF THE EVIL ONE THAT HE FULLY
  • 00:33:19.250 --> 00:33:22.230
  • INTENDS TO SEND SAILING INTO YOUR PATH.
  • 00:33:22.250 --> 00:33:25.180
  • YOU GONNA NEED A SHIELD, AND THE SHIELD IS YOUR
  • 00:33:25.200 --> 00:33:28.040
  • FAITH. AND THEN YOU KNOW THERE ARE LIES.
  • 00:33:28.060 --> 00:33:30.150
  • THERE ARE STRONGHOLDS THAT HE'S GOING TO TRY
  • 00:33:30.170 --> 00:33:32.090
  • TO ERECT IN YOUR MIND.
  • 00:33:32.110 --> 00:33:33.280
  • YOU'RE GONNA NEED SOMETHING TO PROTECT YOUR
  • 00:33:34.000 --> 00:33:36.100
  • MIND. HE SAYS YOU NEED A HELMET, AND THE HELMET
  • 00:33:36.120 --> 00:33:39.070
  • IS YOUR SALVATION.
  • 00:33:39.090 --> 00:33:41.000
  • BUT NOT ONLY THAT, HE SAYS THAT YOU ARE GOING
  • 00:33:41.020 --> 00:33:43.100
  • TO NEED A SWORD, REALLY A DAGGER OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:33:43.120 --> 00:33:46.290
  • IT WAS ABOUT 18 INCHES LONG OR SO, THE ONE THE
  • 00:33:47.010 --> 00:33:49.070
  • APOSTLE PAUL IS REFERRING TO.
  • 00:33:49.090 --> 00:33:51.160
  • YOU NEED A DAGGER SO THAT WHEN THE ENEMY IS ALL UP
  • 00:33:51.180 --> 00:33:54.170
  • IN YOUR SPACE, YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING CLOSE AT HAND
  • 00:33:54.190 --> 00:33:57.140
  • TO MAKE SURE THAT HE STAYS AT BAY.
  • 00:33:57.160 --> 00:33:59.140
  • YOU NEED A DAGGER OF THE SPIRIT, AND THE DAGGER
  • 00:33:59.160 --> 00:34:02.050
  • IS CALLED THE WHAT?
  • 00:34:02.070 --> 00:34:03.180
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:34:03.200 --> 00:34:07.070
  • BUT Y'ALL, HE DOESN'T STOP AT THOSE SIX.
  • 00:34:07.090 --> 00:34:08.280
  • CAN I JUST SAY THAT THERE IS ONE MORE IN 18, VERSE
  • 00:34:09.000 --> 00:34:12.060
  • 18. TRADITIONALLY, IT'S TAUGHT AS SIX.
  • 00:34:12.080 --> 00:34:14.030
  • I REALLY BELIEVE THERE ARE SEVEN PIECES OF ARMOR
  • 00:34:14.050 --> 00:34:15.280
  • BECAUSE IN VERSE 18, HE SAYS PRAY.
  • 00:34:16.000 --> 00:34:20.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:34:20.100 --> 00:34:24.270
  • HE SAYS PRAY. NOT LIKE,
  • 00:34:24.290 --> 00:34:30.250
  • YOU KNOW, A PRAYER A DAY TO KEEP THE DEVIL AWAY.
  • 00:34:30.270 --> 00:34:35.040
  • NOT LIKE A PRAYER OVER YOUR MEAL JUST 'CAUSE.
  • 00:34:35.060 --> 00:34:38.170
  • THAT'S WHAT YOUR MAMMA DID AND YOUR GRANDMAMMA
  • 00:34:38.190 --> 00:34:40.050
  • DID, AND THAT'S WHAT'S YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO.
  • 00:34:40.070 --> 00:34:42.240
  • NOT SOMETHING QUICK AND CASUAL.
  • 00:34:42.260 --> 00:34:45.200
  • FERVENT, PRIORITIZED PRAYER.
  • 00:34:45.220 --> 00:34:50.140
  • Y'ALL CAN'T HAVE VICTORY IF YOU DON'T PRAY.
  • 00:34:50.160 --> 00:34:53.190
  • DO YOU HEAR WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU?
  • 00:34:53.210 --> 00:34:55.230
  • PRAYER IS THE KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE RESOURCES OF
  • 00:34:55.250 --> 00:35:00.020
  • HEAVEN SO THAT THEY CAN BE UNLEASHED ON PLANET
  • 00:35:00.040 --> 00:35:02.270
  • EARTH. PRAYER IS THE KEY
  • 00:35:02.290 --> 00:35:05.190
  • HE'S ACTUALLY GIVEN YOU TO GET ALL THE
  • 00:35:05.210 --> 00:35:07.220
  • GOOD STUFF DOWN HERE.
  • 00:35:07.240 --> 00:35:09.200
  • BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I DON'T
  • 00:35:09.220 --> 00:35:11.050
  • WANT TO WAIT TO GET TO HEAVEN TO EXPERIENCE ALL
  • 00:35:11.070 --> 00:35:13.230
  • THAT GOD HAS FOR ME.
  • 00:35:13.250 --> 00:35:15.090
  • ANY BITS OF HEAVEN HE PLANS TO GIVE ME ON
  • 00:35:15.110 --> 00:35:17.190
  • EARTH, I WANT IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:35:17.210 --> 00:35:19.150
  • PRAYER ACCESSES THE BITS OF HEAVEN HE INTENDS
  • 00:35:19.170 --> 00:35:22.120
  • TO GIVE YOU NOW.
  • 00:35:22.140 --> 00:35:24.160
  • AND PRAYER, LISTEN, PRAYER IS WHAT PUSHES THE
  • 00:35:24.180 --> 00:35:26.200
  • KINGDOM OF DARKNESS BACK.
  • 00:35:26.220 --> 00:35:29.090
  • IT'S WHAT PUSHES IT BACK.
  • 00:35:29.110 --> 00:35:30.220
  • THAT'S WHY JESUS SAID MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED NOT
  • 00:35:30.240 --> 00:35:33.010
  • A HOUSE OF GOOD PREACHING, NOT A HOUSE OF
  • 00:35:33.030 --> 00:35:35.270
  • GOOD SINGING, NOT A HOUSE OF GREAT SPOTLIGHTS AND
  • 00:35:35.290 --> 00:35:38.250
  • PRODUCTION, NOT A HOUSE OF GREAT CAFES.
  • 00:35:38.270 --> 00:35:42.070
  • I HOPE YOU HAVE ALL OF THAT. ENJOY IT.
  • 00:35:42.090 --> 00:35:44.260
  • BUT JESUS SAID AT THE END OF THE DAY MY HOUSE
  • 00:35:44.280 --> 00:35:46.260
  • BETTER BE CALLED THE HOUSE OF PRAYER BECAUSE
  • 00:35:46.280 --> 00:35:49.120
  • SPOTLIGHTS AND FOG MACHINES AND GREAT
  • 00:35:49.140 --> 00:35:51.090
  • SINGING AND GREAT PREACHING, THAT WON'T
  • 00:35:51.110 --> 00:35:53.200
  • NECESSARILY PUSH THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS BACK.
  • 00:35:53.220 --> 00:35:56.190
  • BUT WHEN MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,
  • 00:35:56.210 --> 00:35:59.230
  • WHEN THEY WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND WHEN
  • 00:35:59.250 --> 00:36:01.280
  • THEY'LL PRAY, HE SAYS THEN I'M GONNA
  • 00:36:02.000 --> 00:36:03.130
  • HEAR FROM HEAVEN. I'M GONNA HEAL THE LAND.
  • 00:36:03.150 --> 00:36:06.180
  • THE ENEMY WILL HAVE TO BEND THE KNEE AT THE NAME
  • 00:36:06.200 --> 00:36:08.220
  • OF JESUS IN PRAYER.
  • 00:36:08.240 --> 00:36:10.210
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:36:10.230 --> 00:36:14.240
  • SO PRAY.
  • 00:36:14.260 --> 00:36:19.090
  • THERE'S ONE OTHER PIECE OF ARMOR I COULDN'T GET
  • 00:36:19.110 --> 00:36:20.280
  • BY WITHOUT TALKING TO YOU ABOUT IT FOR A FEW
  • 00:36:21.000 --> 00:36:22.290
  • MOMENTS. Y'ALL STILL AWAKE?
  • 00:36:23.010 --> 00:36:24.240
  • EVERYBODY GAME?
  • 00:36:24.260 --> 00:36:26.030
  • [CHEERING]
  • 00:36:26.050 --> 00:36:28.190
  • IT'S IN VERSE 14.
  • 00:36:28.210 --> 00:36:31.030
  • HE SAYS PUT ON A BREASTPLATE CALLED WHAT?
  • 00:36:31.050 --> 00:36:35.090
  • - AUDIENCE: RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:36:35.110 --> 00:36:38.020
  • - RIGHTEOUSNESS. RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:36:38.040 --> 00:36:42.280
  • JERRY AND I LIVE IN A FAIRLY RURAL PART OF
  • 00:36:43.000 --> 00:36:45.020
  • DALLAS FT. WORTH. WE LIKE IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:36:45.040 --> 00:36:47.180
  • CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE CITY, WE CAN GET THERE QUICK,
  • 00:36:47.200 --> 00:36:49.130
  • BUT IT'S QUIET AND LAZY.
  • 00:36:49.150 --> 00:36:51.200
  • WE LIVE ON A LITTLE TWO LANE SLEEPY ROAD.
  • 00:36:51.220 --> 00:36:53.270
  • SOMEBODY'S GOT SOME HORSES OVER THERE, THERE'S
  • 00:36:53.290 --> 00:36:55.230
  • SOME COWS OVER THERE, AND ONE OF MY CLOSEST FRIENDS
  • 00:36:55.250 --> 00:36:58.180
  • LIVES ACROSS THE STREET.
  • 00:36:58.200 --> 00:37:00.110
  • THAT'S WHY WE LIKE IT, 'CAUSE SHE'S GOT A POND
  • 00:37:00.130 --> 00:37:03.020
  • IN THE FRONT OF HER PROPERTY.
  • 00:37:03.040 --> 00:37:05.040
  • SO I'LL GET THE BOYS AND THE TWO FISHING POLES
  • 00:37:05.060 --> 00:37:06.270
  • I BOUGHT ON SALE AT THE LOCAL WAL-MART.
  • 00:37:06.290 --> 00:37:09.040
  • I HAVE A TACKLE BOX TOO THAT I GOT ON SALE THERE
  • 00:37:09.060 --> 00:37:11.160
  • BECAUSE WE NEED THINGS.
  • 00:37:11.180 --> 00:37:12.280
  • WE NEED EXTRA HOOKS BECAUSE THE BOYS ALWAYS
  • 00:37:13.000 --> 00:37:14.070
  • LOSE THE HOOKS, EXTRA BOBBER THINGIES BECAUSE
  • 00:37:14.090 --> 00:37:16.120
  • WE NEED EXTRAS OF THOSE.
  • 00:37:16.140 --> 00:37:18.050
  • I ALSO HAVE GLOVES IN THE TACKLE BOX BECAUSE Y'ALL
  • 00:37:18.070 --> 00:37:20.030
  • KNOW I DON'T MIND GOING FISHING, BUT I AIN'T
  • 00:37:20.050 --> 00:37:21.170
  • GONNA ACTUALLY TOUCH NO FISH.
  • 00:37:21.190 --> 00:37:23.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:37:23.130 --> 00:37:26.180
  • SO WE WALK ACROSS THE STREET WITH WHATEVER
  • 00:37:26.200 --> 00:37:28.070
  • HOTDOG MEAT WE'VE GOT LEFT FROM THE WEEK,
  • 00:37:28.090 --> 00:37:30.200
  • BECAUSE WE'RE PROFESSIONAL FISHERMEN,
  • 00:37:30.220 --> 00:37:32.220
  • SO HOTDOG MEAT IS OUR BAIT.
  • 00:37:32.240 --> 00:37:35.050
  • WE WALK ACROSS THE STREET AND STAND IN THIS COVE
  • 00:37:35.070 --> 00:37:37.060
  • UNDER SOME TREES, AND WE FISH RIGHT THERE
  • 00:37:37.080 --> 00:37:38.290
  • MOST OF THE TIME.
  • 00:37:39.010 --> 00:37:40.100
  • JUST LITTLE SUN PERCH, STUFF LIKE THAT,
  • 00:37:40.120 --> 00:37:41.240
  • WE CAN CATCH QUICK.
  • 00:37:41.260 --> 00:37:43.000
  • IN AN HOUR, WE CAN CATCH TEN OR TWELVE FISH.
  • 00:37:43.020 --> 00:37:44.280
  • JUST A LITTLE QUICK EASY FISHING TRIP.
  • 00:37:45.000 --> 00:37:47.100
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN THOUGH, I'M FEELING
  • 00:37:47.120 --> 00:37:49.160
  • ADVENTUROUS. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT WE WILL GET INTO
  • 00:37:49.180 --> 00:37:52.220
  • MY FRIEND'S LITTLE ROWBOAT THEY BOUGHT ON CRAIG'S
  • 00:37:52.240 --> 00:37:54.270
  • LIST. IT'S METAL. IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:37:54.290 --> 00:37:57.000
  • IT'S JUST A LITTLE, IT'S SEAWORTHY.
  • 00:37:57.020 --> 00:37:58.200
  • IT CAN HOLD US UP. THAT'S ALL WE NEED. I'LL SWIM--
  • 00:37:58.220 --> 00:38:01.200
  • WE'LL ROW OUT INTO THE MIDDLE, AND WE'LL FISH
  • 00:38:01.220 --> 00:38:03.170
  • FROM THERE EVERY NOW AND THEN.
  • 00:38:03.190 --> 00:38:05.150
  • BUT I ALWAYS THINK TWICE BEFORE I DO IT
  • 00:38:05.170 --> 00:38:07.110
  • AND HERE'S THE REASON.
  • 00:38:07.130 --> 00:38:09.150
  • BECAUSE IN ORDER TO GET IN IT,
  • 00:38:09.170 --> 00:38:11.110
  • WE FIRST HAVE TO TURN IT OVER.
  • 00:38:11.130 --> 00:38:13.240
  • THEY LEAVE IT UPSIDE DOWN, AS THEY SHOULD, TO DRAIN WATER
  • 00:38:13.260 --> 00:38:16.080
  • WHILE NOBODY'S USING IT.
  • 00:38:16.100 --> 00:38:17.250
  • SO I GOT TO TURN IT OVER TO GET IN.
  • 00:38:17.270 --> 00:38:19.140
  • AND WHAT I DO KNOW FOR SURE IS IS THAT WHEN I TURN THIS THING
  • 00:38:19.160 --> 00:38:22.070
  • OVER, SOMETHING IS EITHER GOING TO HOP OUT FROM
  • 00:38:22.090 --> 00:38:26.060
  • UNDERNEATH IT, SOMETHING IS GOING TO WADDLE OUT FROM
  • 00:38:26.080 --> 00:38:28.270
  • UNDERNEATH IT, OR, WORST OF ALL, SOMETHING'S GOING TO
  • 00:38:28.290 --> 00:38:31.220
  • SLITHER OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THAT BOAT BECAUSE THE
  • 00:38:31.240 --> 00:38:34.180
  • ENVIRONMENT UNDER THERE IS MOIST, DAMP AND
  • 00:38:34.200 --> 00:38:37.070
  • PERFECT FOR CRITTERS. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE NOTICED?
  • 00:38:37.090 --> 00:38:40.010
  • EVERY SINGLE TIME WE TURN IT OVER, SOMETHING COMES OUT AND
  • 00:38:40.030 --> 00:38:42.020
  • NEVER ONCE HAVE I HAD TO WRITE A GOLDEN SEAL OF
  • 00:38:42.040 --> 00:38:45.160
  • INVITATION AND SEND IT INTO THE BRUSH NEARBY TO INVITE THE
  • 00:38:45.180 --> 00:38:48.130
  • CRITTERS TO COME AND JOIN US AT ONE O'CLOCK TODAY.
  • 00:38:48.150 --> 00:38:50.030
  • YOU'RE WELCOME.
  • 00:38:50.050 --> 00:38:52.140
  • NEVER ONCE HAVE I HAD TO INVITE THEM BECAUSE THE
  • 00:38:52.160 --> 00:38:55.090
  • ENVIRONMENT CREATED BY THE UPSIDE DOWN BOAT
  • 00:38:55.110 --> 00:38:58.110
  • IS INVITATION ENOUGH.
  • 00:38:58.130 --> 00:39:02.000
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS RIGHT SIDE UP LIVING THAT INVITES THE
  • 00:39:02.020 --> 00:39:06.190
  • SUNLIGHT OF GOD'S FAVOR AND BLESSING UPON YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:39:06.210 --> 00:39:11.130
  • UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IS UPSIDE DOWN BEHAVIOR THAT IS OUT OF
  • 00:39:11.150 --> 00:39:16.060
  • ALIGNMENT WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD THAT YOU'VE BEEN SITTING
  • 00:39:16.080 --> 00:39:18.260
  • UNDERNEATH FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS.
  • 00:39:18.280 --> 00:39:21.030
  • IT'S BEHAVIOR THAT IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT WITH THE TRUTH OF
  • 00:39:21.050 --> 00:39:23.180
  • GOD TO WHERE YOU DON'T HAVE TO INVITE THE ENEMY TO COME AND
  • 00:39:23.200 --> 00:39:26.240
  • MAKE HIS AT HOME IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:39:26.260 --> 00:39:29.040
  • YOU JUST KEEP LIVING UPSIDE DOWN, AND THE ENVIRONMENT
  • 00:39:29.060 --> 00:39:32.270
  • CREATED BY UPSIDE DOWN BEHAVIOR IS INVITATION ENOUGH.
  • 00:39:32.290 --> 00:39:37.220
  • LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:39:37.240 --> 00:39:39.090
  • YOU CAN PRAY AGAINST THE ENEMY UNTIL YOU'RE BLUE IN THE FACE,
  • 00:39:39.110 --> 00:39:41.110
  • BUT IF WE WANT TO LEAD IN PASSION, AND WE DO NOT WALK IN
  • 00:39:41.130 --> 00:39:45.030
  • HOLINESS, WE DO NOT LIVE IN A LIFESTYLE THAT IS IN ALIGNMENT
  • 00:39:45.050 --> 00:39:48.220
  • WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD, WE WILL HAVE WASTED
  • 00:39:48.240 --> 00:39:51.240
  • OUR BREATH IN PRAYER.
  • 00:39:51.260 --> 00:39:54.030
  • PAUL SAYS SOMEBODY'S GOT TO LIVE RIGHT.
  • 00:39:54.050 --> 00:39:59.000
  • IT'S FLAT OUT, STRAIGHT UP HOLINESS.
  • 00:39:59.020 --> 00:40:09.140
  • IT'S A WORD THAT OUR GRANDMOTHERS AND OUR
  • 00:40:09.160 --> 00:40:11.150
  • GRANDFATHERS BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN YOU WENT TO
  • 00:40:11.170 --> 00:40:13.270
  • CHURCH AND YOU SAT ON A WOODEN PEW; IT'S BEFORE SOME CHURCHES
  • 00:40:13.290 --> 00:40:17.040
  • BECAME SO PRE-SEEKER SENSITIVE -- LISTEN, I'M OFF TRACK.
  • 00:40:17.060 --> 00:40:22.180
  • LISTEN, I WENT TO A CHURCH, AND THEY SAID WE ARE A
  • 00:40:22.200 --> 00:40:25.050
  • PRE-SEEKER SENSITIVE CHURCH, SO WE ACTUALLY WANT TO SORT OF, IN
  • 00:40:25.070 --> 00:40:29.160
  • A WAY, THEY SAID, DULL DOWN THE ACTUAL LITERAL NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:40:29.180 --> 00:40:33.270
  • JUST SO WE CAN GET PEOPLE IN FIRST.
  • 00:40:33.290 --> 00:40:35.210
  • THEN WE WILL BE MORE DIRECT LATER ON.
  • 00:40:35.230 --> 00:40:38.120
  • I SAID, OH, YOU HAVE INVITED THE WRONG PERSON.
  • 00:40:38.140 --> 00:40:40.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:40:40.130 --> 00:40:43.180
  • BECAUSE THERE USED TO BE A DAY AND TIME WHERE IT WAS JUST
  • 00:40:43.200 --> 00:40:46.240
  • BLACK AND WHITE, WHERE THERE WERE FEWER GRAY
  • 00:40:46.260 --> 00:40:49.090
  • AREAS AND TOLERANCE.
  • 00:40:49.110 --> 00:40:51.130
  • YES, COME AS YOU ARE, BUT DON'T STAY AS YOU ARE.
  • 00:40:51.150 --> 00:40:53.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:40:53.250 --> 00:40:55.280
  • HOLINESS.
  • 00:40:56.000 --> 00:40:58.110
  • BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I IMPLORE YOU BY THE MERCIES OF
  • 00:40:58.130 --> 00:41:00.200
  • GOD TO WALK IN A MANNER WORTHY OF THIS CALLING BY WHICH YOU
  • 00:41:00.220 --> 00:41:04.150
  • HAVE BEEN CALLED; THAT EVERY BIT OF TRUTH THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:41:04.170 --> 00:41:07.280
  • RECEIVED THIS WEEKEND, TO ALIGN YOUR LIFESTYLE TO IT, TO
  • 00:41:08.000 --> 00:41:11.290
  • NOT DETERMINE THAT YOU WILL STILL DIG YOUR HEELS INTO THE
  • 00:41:12.010 --> 00:41:15.020
  • GROUND AND LIVE IMMORALLY OR SPEAK IMMORALLY OR DO THE
  • 00:41:15.040 --> 00:41:18.260
  • THINGS, HABITS AND LIFESTYLES AND CHOICES AND RELATIONSHIPS,
  • 00:41:18.280 --> 00:41:23.070
  • THAT YOU KNOW ARE OUTSIDE OF ALIGNMENT WITH THE
  • 00:41:23.090 --> 00:41:26.040
  • TRUTH OF GOD.
  • 00:41:26.060 --> 00:41:28.000
  • TURN THE BOAT RIGHT SIDE UP SO THAT YOU CAN INVITE THE FAVOR
  • 00:41:28.020 --> 00:41:32.000
  • OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:41:32.020 --> 00:41:33.280
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:41:34.000 --> 00:41:35.200
  • IS YOUR BREASTPLATE.
  • 00:41:35.220 --> 00:41:37.120
  • THE ROMAN ARMY, IN THE FIRST CENTURY, THEY HAD MANY PIECES
  • 00:41:37.140 --> 00:41:40.060
  • OF ARMOR, AS YOU KNOW, BUT THE BREASTPLATE WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:41:40.080 --> 00:41:42.290
  • ONE OF THE MOST CRITICAL.
  • 00:41:43.010 --> 00:41:44.270
  • THE REASON WHY WAS BECAUSE IT OBVIOUSLY PROTECTED THE MOST
  • 00:41:44.290 --> 00:41:48.240
  • VITAL ORGAN THEY HAD, THEIR HEART.
  • 00:41:48.260 --> 00:41:52.030
  • THE HEART IS THE LIFELINE FOR YOUR PHYSICAL WELL BEING.
  • 00:41:52.050 --> 00:41:55.060
  • ALL OF THE BLOOD FLOW, THE VITALITY, THE ENERGY THAT YOU
  • 00:41:55.080 --> 00:41:58.030
  • NEED TO FUNCTION IN EVERY LEVEL OF YOUR LIFE COMES
  • 00:41:58.050 --> 00:42:01.030
  • FROM THE VITALITY OF YOUR PHYSICAL HEART.
  • 00:42:01.050 --> 00:42:04.000
  • WHAT THE PHYSICAL HEART IS TO THE PHYSICAL LIFE, YOUR
  • 00:42:04.020 --> 00:42:06.250
  • SPIRITUAL HEART IS TO YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE.
  • 00:42:06.270 --> 00:42:09.270
  • ALL OF THE VITALITY, THE ENERGY, THAT YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:42:09.290 --> 00:42:12.260
  • WHO GOD HAS CREATED YOU TO BE, TO HAVE FERVENCY IN YOUR
  • 00:42:12.280 --> 00:42:16.080
  • PRAYER LIFE, TO FOLLOW HIM WITH PASSION AND WITH FIRE, TO
  • 00:42:16.100 --> 00:42:19.180
  • READ THE BIBLE AND IT NOT JUST BE INK ON A PAGE, BUT YOU HEAR
  • 00:42:19.200 --> 00:42:23.060
  • HIS VOICE SPEAKING TO YOU, TO HAVE CLEAR RECEPTION BETWEEN
  • 00:42:23.080 --> 00:42:27.210
  • YOU AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, YOU NEED A VITAL, SPIRITUAL HEART.
  • 00:42:27.230 --> 00:42:31.260
  • THAT'S WHY, IF I WERE YOUR ENEMY MORE THAN ALL ELSE, I'D
  • 00:42:31.280 --> 00:42:35.080
  • BE AFTER YOUR HEART BECAUSE ONE SHOT TO THE SPIRITUAL
  • 00:42:35.100 --> 00:42:40.190
  • HEART WILL WIPE YOU OUT.
  • 00:42:40.210 --> 00:42:43.240
  • YOUR SPIRITUAL HEART IS COMPRISED OF FOUR THINGS: YOUR
  • 00:42:43.260 --> 00:42:46.060
  • MIND, THE WAY YOU THINK; YOUR EMOTIONS, THE WAY YOU FEEL;
  • 00:42:46.080 --> 00:42:49.110
  • YOUR AMBITIONS, WHAT YOU PURPOSE TO DO;
  • 00:42:49.130 --> 00:42:52.010
  • AND YOUR CONSCIENCE.
  • 00:42:52.030 --> 00:42:54.110
  • YOUR CONSCIENCE IS NOT THE VOICE OF GOD, BUT YOUR
  • 00:42:54.130 --> 00:42:56.250
  • CONSCIENCE IS LIKE THIS WIRING THAT HELPS THIS MICROPHONE
  • 00:42:56.270 --> 00:43:00.020
  • AMPLIFY MY VOICE.
  • 00:43:00.040 --> 00:43:01.290
  • THE CONSCIENCE IS THE MICROPHONE THAT THE HOLY
  • 00:43:02.010 --> 00:43:05.050
  • SPIRIT USES TO HELP YOU HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:43:05.070 --> 00:43:08.240
  • SO IF I WERE YOUR ENEMY, I'D BE AFTER YOUR HEART BECAUSE IF
  • 00:43:08.260 --> 00:43:11.100
  • I COULD GET TO YOUR HEART, THAT WOULD MEAN I WOULD HAVE
  • 00:43:11.120 --> 00:43:13.280
  • AUTOMATIC ACCESS TO YOUR MIND.
  • 00:43:14.000 --> 00:43:16.080
  • NOW I COULD TINKER WITH YOUR THINKING.
  • 00:43:16.100 --> 00:43:18.020
  • I'D HAVE AUTOMATIC ACCESS TO YOUR EMOTIONS.
  • 00:43:18.040 --> 00:43:19.290
  • I CAN MESS WITH THE WAY YOU FEEL AND MAKE SURE THEY'RE OUT
  • 00:43:20.010 --> 00:43:23.060
  • OF ALIGNMENT WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD.
  • 00:43:23.080 --> 00:43:25.070
  • I CAN MESS WITH YOUR AMBITIONS TO WHERE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
  • 00:43:25.090 --> 00:43:27.120
  • IS TOTALLY OUT OF ALIGNMENT WITH WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:43:27.140 --> 00:43:31.110
  • AND MORE THAN ALL ELSE, I'D WANT TO MAKE SURE I'D HAVE A
  • 00:43:31.130 --> 00:43:34.130
  • SHOT TO YOUR HEART SO THAT I CAN SHORT CIRCUIT THE
  • 00:43:34.150 --> 00:43:36.210
  • WIRES BETWEEN AND YOU THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:43:36.230 --> 00:43:39.120
  • NOW YOU CAN'T EVEN HEAR GOD SPEAK TO YOU BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:43:39.140 --> 00:43:42.230
  • DIDN'T HAVE A BREASTPLATE ON.
  • 00:43:42.250 --> 00:43:46.030
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS HOLINESS IS YOUR BREASTPLATE.
  • 00:43:46.050 --> 00:43:49.050
  • HOLINESS BLOCKS YOU FROM A FULL FRONTAL
  • 00:43:49.070 --> 00:43:51.150
  • ATTACK OF THE ENEMY.
  • 00:43:51.170 --> 00:43:53.120
  • HOLINESS KEEPS THE ENEMY AT BAY TO WHERE WHEN HE COMES
  • 00:43:53.140 --> 00:43:56.200
  • LOOKING AROUND FOR SOME PEOPLE THAT HE CAN INFILTRATE, SOME
  • 00:43:56.220 --> 00:43:59.140
  • UPSIDE DOWN ENVIRONMENTS THAT HE CAN FESTER IN, HE CAN'T
  • 00:43:59.160 --> 00:44:04.120
  • FIND THAT WITH ME OR WITH YOU BECAUSE WE'VE CHOSEN RIGHT
  • 00:44:04.140 --> 00:44:06.250
  • SIDE UP LIVING, ALIGNING OURSELVES WITH THE TRUTH OF
  • 00:44:06.270 --> 00:44:10.160
  • GOD, BREASTPLATE IN PLACE SECURING US AGAINST THE
  • 00:44:10.180 --> 00:44:14.140
  • SCHEMES OF THE ENEMY. HOLINESS IS YOUR BREASTPLATE.
  • 00:44:14.160 --> 00:44:19.070
  • I CAME TO TELL YOU TO LIVE RIGHT.
  • 00:44:19.090 --> 00:44:23.100
  • I CAME TO TELL YOU NOT TO JUST HAVE HEARD ALL OF THIS, BUT TO
  • 00:44:23.120 --> 00:44:27.240
  • GO HOME AND LIVE IN ACCORDANCE WITH IT. BE YE HOLY.
  • 00:44:27.260 --> 00:44:36.180
  • NOT BY YOUR POWER, NOT BY YOUR MIGHT, BUT BY THE
  • 00:44:36.200 --> 00:44:38.250
  • SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:44:38.270 --> 00:44:41.240
  • THERE IS NO RELATIONSHIP YOU'RE IN THAT IF IT IS OUT OF
  • 00:44:41.260 --> 00:44:44.240
  • ALIGNMENT WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:44:44.260 --> 00:44:47.010
  • HIMSELF WON'T HELP YOU TO SEVER SO THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:44:47.030 --> 00:44:49.180
  • WALK IN HOLINESS.
  • 00:44:49.200 --> 00:44:51.080
  • THERE IS NO LIFESTYLE THAT YOU ARE LIVING THAT YOU'RE TOO
  • 00:44:51.100 --> 00:44:53.240
  • WOUND UP IN THAT YOU CAN'T BREAK FREE FROM.
  • 00:44:53.260 --> 00:44:57.100
  • NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL IN THIS MOMENT, YOU CAN WALK IN
  • 00:44:57.120 --> 00:45:00.170
  • HOLINESS. THERE IS NO WAY YOU HAVE BEEN SPEAKING, NO
  • 00:45:00.190 --> 00:45:04.250
  • ADDICTION THAT YOU HAVE, NO HABIT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN
  • 00:45:04.270 --> 00:45:08.060
  • FESTERING IN IN YOUR LIFE, THAT YOU HAVE BEEN HARBORING
  • 00:45:08.080 --> 00:45:10.200
  • IN YOUR LIFE, THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WON'T EMPOWER YOU TO
  • 00:45:10.220 --> 00:45:13.210
  • BREAK FREE FROM SO THAT YOU CAN WALK UNDERNEATH THE
  • 00:45:13.230 --> 00:45:16.200
  • BANNER, THE FAVOR, OF HOLINESS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:45:16.220 --> 00:45:20.060

  • WANTED TO IMPRESS PEOPLE.
  • 00:45:34.280 --> 00:45:37.180

  • WE WANT TO BE IMPRESSIVE.
  • 00:45:47.260 --> 00:45:52.080
  • AND IF I'M WORRIED FOR OUR GENERATION, IT IS THAT WE ARE
  • 00:45:52.100 --> 00:45:57.130
  • IMPRESSIVE, BUT WE DON'T HAVE BREASTPLATES ON.
