  • IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD THAT THERE'S BEEN A LOT
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:20.010
  • OF INSPIRATION AND THINGS TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING
  • 00:05:20.030 --> 00:05:22.280
  • TO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:05:23.000 --> 00:05:23.280
  • I'M GLAD I'M ALIVE.

  • I'M GLAD TO BE GRATEFUL BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH
  • 00:05:25.080 --> 00:05:27.130
  • ROUTINE AND HAS BEEN OPPRESSION, AND JUST TO
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:31.250
  • HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME AND LIFT PEOPLE'S
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:34.100
  • SPIRITS AND LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY ARE PEOPLE OF
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:36.270
  • DESTINY, THAT THEY CAN RISE HIGHER, THAT THEY
  • 00:05:36.290 --> 00:05:39.010
  • CAN FULFILL THEIR PURPOSE.
  • 00:05:39.030 --> 00:05:41.080
  • IT EXCITES ME TO
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:44.050
  • 1.3 BILLION PEOPLE HERE THAT YOU CAN MAYBE TOUCH
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:47.160

  • MAN CAN SHUT.
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:05:59.280
  • IT'S BEING A PART OF HIS PLAN AND HIS DESTINY, AND
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:03.030
  • IT'S LOOKING BACK AT THE PEOPLE THAT PLAYED THEIR
  • 00:06:03.050 --> 00:06:05.230
  • PARTS, YOUR PARENTS, YOU KNOW LIKE YOU TALKED
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:08.220
  • ABOUT, POURED THE OIL AND ALL THE WORK THAT THEY DID.
  • 00:06:08.240 --> 00:06:10.290
  • IT'S AN EXCITING TIME TO BE ALIVE.
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:14.180
  • - VICTORIA OSTEEN: YOU KNOW, TALKING ABOUT THE WALL
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:17.100
  • THAT'S DIVIDING THE PEOPLE, AND THAT'S AN
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:20.000
  • INTERESTING THOUGHT BECAUSE THE ENEMY WANTS
  • 00:06:20.020 --> 00:06:22.260
  • TO BUILD WALLS.
  • 00:06:22.280 --> 00:06:24.050
  • - SURE.
  • 00:06:24.070 --> 00:06:25.140
  • - HE WANTS TO BUILD WALLS BETWEEN PEOPLE AND
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:27.000
  • HE CERTAINLY WANTS THERE TO BE A WALL BETWEEN GOD'S
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:29.090
  • PEOPLE AND HIMSELF.
  • 00:06:29.110 --> 00:06:31.100
  • AND YOU KNOW, I THINK THIS IS SO AMAZING
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:33.020
  • BECAUSE WHAT THEY CALL THE "BIG LOVE" IS WHAT
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:35.220
  • THEY'RE FEELING.
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:37.020
  • IT'S THAT GOD SHAPED SPACE IN THEIR HEART THAT
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:41.070
  • HAS NEVER BEEN FILLED, AND SO FOR THESE TIMES TO
  • 00:06:41.090 --> 00:06:44.020
  • NOT ONLY BE THE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:48.030
  • SEEING THESE WALLS BROKEN DOWN, THE WALLS IN
  • 00:06:48.050 --> 00:06:50.260
  • PEOPLE'S HEARTS ARE GOING TO BE BROKEN DOWN, AND
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:53.260
  • THE LOVE OF CHRIST WHO SO DESPERATELY WANTS TO DRAW
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:58.160
  • THEM UNTO HIMSELF LIKE HE DOES ALL OF US, WE JUST
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:02.040
  • HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GROW UP IN THE UNITED
  • 00:07:02.060 --> 00:07:06.130
  • STATES WHERE OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED UNDER
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:09.130
  • GOD, BUT THIS IS A TIME FOR THIS NATION TO HAVE
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:13.140
  • THE BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE OF THE GOOD NEWS, THE GOSPEL
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:17.130
  • BROUGHT TO THEM, AND IT'S SO SIGNIFICANT THAT IT
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:20.240
  • CAN CHANGE THIS ENTIRE NATION IN A WAY THAT WE
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:23.140
  • CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE.
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:25.100
  • WE CAN'T EVEN FORESEE IT.
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:27.060
  • I MEAN, AS THEY BROUGHT THE BIBLES IN AND THEY
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:29.130
  • SMUGGLED THE BIBLES IN, AS THEY POURED OIL AND
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:31.250
  • PRAYED THEY COULDN'T SEE WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TODAY.
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:35.100
  • SO WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT IT'S
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:37.170
  • EXCITING AND IT'S ELECTRIFYING AND YOU CAN
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:39.130

  • 00:27:35.210 --> 00:27:38.130
  • SO FOR US TO BE ABLE TO COME AND LIFT PEOPLE'S
  • 00:27:38.150 --> 00:27:42.010
  • SPIRITS AND LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY'RE PEOPLE OF
  • 00:27:42.030 --> 00:27:44.150
  • DESTINY AND PURPOSE AND THAT THEY CAN FULFILL THEIR
  • 00:27:44.170 --> 00:27:47.110
  • DREAMS AND DO GREAT THINGS.
  • 00:27:47.130 --> 00:27:48.270
  • I MEAN IT'S JUST, IT FEELS VERY HISTORIC AND IN ANY
  • 00:27:48.290 --> 00:27:54.040
  • WAY WHEN YOU CAN LIFT PEOPLE UP, GOD'S OPENING
  • 00:27:54.060 --> 00:27:56.240
  • THE DOOR FOR TBN AND YOU GUYS TO JUST
  • 00:27:56.260 --> 00:28:00.170
  • SPEAK TO A GREAT NATION HERE. SO IT FEELS
  • 00:28:00.190 --> 00:28:04.120
  • HISTORIC AND I THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU SAID
  • 00:28:04.140 --> 00:28:07.000
  • ABOUT 32 YEARS AGO, YOUR PARENTS LAID THE GROUND WORK.
  • 00:28:07.020 --> 00:28:12.000
  • WELL A LOT OF TIMES GOD PUTS THINGS IN YOU THAT
  • 00:28:12.020 --> 00:28:13.260
  • YOU DON'T SEE COME TO PASS IN YOUR LIFETIME.
  • 00:28:13.280 --> 00:28:16.090
  • IT'S THE NEXT LIFETIME. IT'S KIND OF LIKE DAVID.
  • 00:28:16.110 --> 00:28:18.210
  • HE DIDN'T BUILD THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:28:18.230 --> 00:28:20.100
  • WE ARE REAPING THE SEEDS OF WHAT YOUR PARENTS HAVE SOWN
  • 00:28:20.120 --> 00:28:23.100
  • ALL THOSE YEARS, AND TO SEE THIS OPPORTUNITY OPEN UP,
  • 00:28:23.120 --> 00:28:26.030
  • IT'S JUST REALLY UNTHINKABLE WHEN WE TALK
  • 00:28:26.050 --> 00:28:28.260
  • ABOUT HOW THE OLD DAYS JUST SMUGGLING BIBLES HERE AND
  • 00:28:28.280 --> 00:28:31.170
  • ALL THAT STUFF, AND NOW TODAY WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:28:31.190 --> 00:28:34.010
  • PUTTING TRINITY BROADCASTING ON THE AIR HERE.
  • 00:28:34.030 --> 00:28:36.180
  • IT'S PHENOMENAL.
  • 00:28:36.200 --> 00:28:38.100
  • - YOU KNOW, YOU THINK ABOUT THIS NATION,
  • 00:28:38.120 --> 00:28:40.180
  • THIS WHOLE NATION, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT AT THIS
  • 00:28:40.200 --> 00:28:43.120
  • CRITICAL TIME. IT REALLY IS.
  • 00:28:43.140 --> 00:28:45.060
  • IT'S AN IMPORTANT NATION.
  • 00:28:45.080 --> 00:28:47.050
  • AND IT APPEARS THAT IT IS NOT STEEPED IN ONE
  • 00:28:47.070 --> 00:28:51.230
  • RELIGION. YOU KNOW, IT HAS A COVERING OVER ITS
  • 00:28:51.250 --> 00:28:55.170
  • HEART BUT NOT IN RELIGION. IT'S JUST A COVERING.
  • 00:28:55.190 --> 00:28:59.050
  • AND FOR GOD TO BE ABLE TO LIFT THAT VEIL TO THESE
  • 00:28:59.070 --> 00:29:03.000
  • PEOPLE IS CRITICAL BECAUSE IT'S A CRITICAL NATION OF
  • 00:29:03.020 --> 00:29:06.250
  • THE WORLD IN GENERAL, AN ALLY WITH THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:29:06.270 --> 00:29:12.160
  • SO THIS IS A VERY CRITICAL TIME, I REALLY THINK,
  • 00:29:12.180 --> 00:29:16.020
  • AND GOD'S TIMING IS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:29:16.040 --> 00:29:18.160
  • IT'S EXACTLY LIKE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT EARLIER,
  • 00:29:18.180 --> 00:29:21.090
  • ALL THE SEEDS, ALL THE PRAYER,
  • 00:29:21.110 --> 00:29:23.040
  • ALL THE MISSIONARIES, ALL THE UNDERGROUND CHURCHES,
  • 00:29:23.060 --> 00:29:26.020
  • JUST PREPARING FOR THIS TIME.
  • 00:29:26.040 --> 00:29:30.080
  • SO TO BE ABLE TO SIT HERE IS REALLY OMINOUS BECAUSE
  • 00:29:30.100 --> 00:29:33.000
  • WE'RE SITTING HERE AND WE'RE JUST TRYING TO GUESS
  • 00:29:33.020 --> 00:29:34.290
  • WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN, BUT GOD KNOWS THE BIG PICTURE.
  • 00:29:35.010 --> 00:29:38.200
  • AND HE KNOWS THAT THE PEOPLE THAT GIVE TO TBN,
  • 00:29:38.220 --> 00:29:41.260
  • THE PEOPLE TO GIVE TO THE MINISTRIES THAT ARE GONNA
  • 00:29:41.280 --> 00:29:44.070
  • GO INTO CHINA THROUGH TBN AND THE IMPACT IT'S GOING
  • 00:29:44.090 --> 00:29:48.040
  • TO MAKE IS PHENOMENAL.
  • 00:29:48.060 --> 00:29:50.160
  • WE DON'T EVEN KNOW THE BIG PICTURE.
  • 00:29:50.180 --> 00:29:52.110
  • BUT I JUST THINK IT'S REALLY AMAZING TO BE ABLE
  • 00:29:52.130 --> 00:29:55.040
  • TO SIT HERE RIGHT NOW AND EVEN BE ABLE TO SEE AS
  • 00:29:55.060 --> 00:29:57.180
  • MUCH AS WE ARE SEEING.

  • THAT I HAVE TO SAY THINGS LIKE THIS IS NOT A SET.
  • 00:30:19.100 --> 00:30:23.120
  • THIS IS THE ACTUAL GREAT WALL OF CHINA.
  • 00:30:23.140 --> 00:30:26.150

  • AND I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.
  • 00:31:12.080 --> 00:31:13.290
  • WITHOUT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT APPROVAL,
  • 00:31:14.010 --> 00:31:19.170
  • WE WOULD NOT BE SITTING HERE, AND WE
  • 00:31:19.190 --> 00:31:21.230

  • FORM OF SATELLITE WOULD BE BOMBARDING EVERY SQUARE INCH.
  • 00:33:20.110 --> 00:33:25.200
  • - MATT CROUCH: MY DAD KNOWS ALL ABOUT SATELLITES,
  • 00:33:25.220 --> 00:33:28.260
  • AND HE THOUGHT THAT THE WAY,
  • 00:33:28.280 --> 00:33:31.010
  • THE ANSWER FOR THE GOSPEL TO GET HERE WAS GONNA BE
  • 00:33:31.030 --> 00:33:34.120
  • THERE WAS GONNA BE A SATELLITE UP IN THE SKY,
  • 00:33:34.140 --> 00:33:37.080

  • 00:33:37.100 --> 00:33:41.140

  • 00:33:41.160 --> 00:33:44.150
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT GOD HAD IN MIND.
  • 00:33:44.170 --> 00:33:47.230
  • YOU REALIZE AS WE'RE STANDING HERE ON THE GREAT

  • 00:34:07.220 --> 00:34:09.280
  • YOU REALIZE THE CCTV BUILDING IS A
  • 00:34:10.000 --> 00:34:12.280
  • MILITARY INSTALLATION.
  • 00:34:13.000 --> 00:34:14.170
  • YOU DON'T EVEN GO INTO THAT BUILDING WITHOUT THE
  • 00:34:14.190 --> 00:34:16.260
  • HIGHEST LEVEL OF AUTHORITY AND AUTHORIZATION.
  • 00:34:16.280 --> 00:34:21.070

  • 00:34:25.160 --> 00:34:28.070
  • GOD SAID NO, I'M GONNA WALK YOU RIGHT IN THE FRONT
  • 00:34:28.090 --> 00:34:30.270
  • DOOR, I'M GONNA PUT YOU RIGHT ON THE TOP OF THE

  • ABOUT WHAT THEY CALL THE BIG LOVE.
  • 00:34:37.010 --> 00:34:40.050
  • WE'RE RIGHT HERE IN BEIJING CHINA.
  • 00:34:40.070 --> 00:34:42.240
  • THIS IS-- I'M PUMPED, MAN!
  • 00:34:42.260 --> 00:34:45.100
  • - VICTORIA OSTEEN: ISN'T IT FUNNY THAT THE WAY
  • 00:34:45.120 --> 00:34:47.240
  • WE FIGURE THINGS OUT,
  • 00:34:47.260 --> 00:34:49.220
  • LIKE YOU SAID, YOUR FATHER SMUGGLED BIBLES FOR YEARS.
  • 00:34:49.240 --> 00:34:52.260
  • WHY WOULDN'T WE USE A SATELLITE TO SMUGGLE IN.
  • 00:34:52.280 --> 00:34:56.010
  • BUT GOD, YOU KNOW WE DO ONE WAY BUT GOD'S WAYS ARE
  • 00:34:56.030 --> 00:35:00.030
  • HIGHER AND GREATER, AND IT'S AN EXCITING,
  • 00:35:00.050 --> 00:35:02.100
  • IT'S EXCITING.
  • 00:35:02.120 --> 00:35:03.250
  • - LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:35:03.270 --> 00:35:05.220
  • VICTORIA AND I ARE ALIKE IN ONE WAY. WE'RE--
  • 00:35:05.240 --> 00:35:10.040
  • WELL, I MEAN LET ME DO IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:35:10.060 --> 00:35:12.140
  • JOEL AND LAURIE ARE ALIKE IN ONE WAY.
  • 00:35:12.160 --> 00:35:15.100
  • THEY CAN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG EVER.
  • 00:35:15.120 --> 00:35:18.090
  • THEY CAN'T CUT A LINE, THEY CAN'T--
  • 00:35:18.110 --> 00:35:20.160
  • I MEAN, JOEL WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG.
  • 00:35:20.180 --> 00:35:22.150
  • - YOU GUYS ARE REBELS.
  • 00:35:22.170 --> 00:35:24.060
  • - AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN HARD FOR JOEL TO SAY HEY,
  • 00:35:24.080 --> 00:35:29.010
  • I'M ON SATELLITE AND WE'RE BYPASSING THE AUTHORITY OR
  • 00:35:29.030 --> 00:35:31.250
  • BYPASSING-- YOU KNOW, WE WOULD LIKE IT,
  • 00:35:31.270 --> 00:35:34.070
  • HER AND I WOULD LIKE THAT.
  • 00:35:34.090 --> 00:35:36.080
  • BUT BASICALLY THE IDEA THAT WE THOUGHT THE DAY OF
  • 00:35:36.100 --> 00:35:41.060
  • BROTHER ANDREW SMUGGLING BIBLES,
  • 00:35:41.080 --> 00:35:43.110
  • THE DAY OF SMUGGLING A SATELLITE SIGNAL INTO CHINA
  • 00:35:43.130 --> 00:35:47.100
  • WAS THE WAY IT WAS GONNA HAPPEN; NOT SO.
  • 00:35:47.120 --> 00:35:50.020
  • WE'RE WALKING RIGHT IN THE FRONT DOOR.
  • 00:35:50.040 --> 00:35:52.000
  • - BUT GOD SAYS I'LL OPEN THE DOORS,
  • 00:35:52.020 --> 00:35:53.210
  • AND WHAT I OPEN NO MAN CAN SHUT.
  • 00:35:53.230 --> 00:35:55.160
  • NO WALL'S BIG ENOUGH TO KEEP GOD OUT AND
  • 00:35:55.180 --> 00:35:58.110
  • WHAT HE WANTS TO DO. AND THIS IS CHINA'S TIME.
  • 00:35:58.130 --> 00:36:01.230
  • IT IS A NEW DAY. IT'S A NEW YEAR FOR CHINA.
  • 00:36:01.250 --> 00:36:04.180
  • AND WE'RE SO-- IT'S SUCH AN AMAZING FEELING TO EVEN BE
  • 00:36:04.200 --> 00:36:08.280
  • A PART, THAT WE'RE EVEN STANDING HERE AND GOD'S
  • 00:36:09.000 --> 00:36:11.160
  • EVEN USING US IN SOME SMALL WAY TO DO THAT.
  • 00:36:11.180 --> 00:36:16.060
  • - YOU KNOW, I SAW ONE THING MATT I THOUGHT ABOUT
  • 00:36:16.080 --> 00:36:18.170
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ONE TIME.
  • 00:36:18.190 --> 00:36:20.050
  • IT SAID PHARAOH HARDENED HIS HEART AND GOD CAUSED
  • 00:36:20.070 --> 00:36:23.180
  • HIM TO DO IT SO GOD COULD SHOW HIS GLORY.
  • 00:36:23.200 --> 00:36:26.060
  • SO SOMETIMES YOU KNOW GOD WANTS TO SHOW OUT.
  • 00:36:26.080 --> 00:36:29.240
  • SCRIPTURE SAYS HE'LL SHOW HIMSELF STRONG IN THOSE THAT
  • 00:36:29.260 --> 00:36:31.270
  • LOVE THE LORD. SO SOMETIMES WE SEE IT THE OTHER WAY.

  • 00:46:08.080 --> 00:46:10.180
  • IT COULD HAPPEN COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:46:10.200 --> 00:46:12.110
  • - IT REALLY IS.
  • 00:46:12.130 --> 00:46:14.010
  • YOU CAN'T PUT GOD IN A BOX, AND WE DO IT A LOT OF TIMES.
  • 00:46:14.030 --> 00:46:15.230
  • WE SAY, GOD, THIS IS WHAT I WANT.
  • 00:46:15.250 --> 00:46:17.060
  • THIS IS WHAT I NEED.
  • 00:46:17.080 --> 00:46:18.220
  • THIS IS HOW TO DO IT AND WHO TO USE, AND WHEN TO DO IT.
  • 00:46:18.240 --> 00:46:20.150
  • BUT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS GOD'S WAYS ARE NOT OUR WAYS.
  • 00:46:20.170 --> 00:46:23.270
  • I THINK THE RIGHT WAY TO PRAY IS, GOD, THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:46:23.290 --> 00:46:26.150
  • YOU PUT IN MY HEART.
  • 00:46:26.170 --> 00:46:28.030
  • THIS IS A DREAM YOU'VE GIVEN ME, BUT, GOD, I KNOW YOU'VE
  • 00:46:28.050 --> 00:46:29.280
  • GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT, SO GOD I TRUST YOU.
  • 00:46:30.000 --> 00:46:32.190
  • I THINK WHEN YOU TAKE GOD OUT OF THAT BOX, AND YOU STAY
  • 00:46:32.210 --> 00:46:35.210
  • OPEN, THAT'S WHEN YOU'LL SEE GOD DO UNUSUAL THINGS, AND
  • 00:46:35.230 --> 00:46:39.190
  • WE'VE SEEN IT TIME AND TIME AGAIN, AND WE SEE IT HERE
  • 00:46:39.210 --> 00:46:41.170
  • THAT, AGAIN, WE THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN ONE WAY, BUT GOD
  • 00:46:41.190 --> 00:46:44.180
  • LIKES TO SHOW HIMSELF STRONG.
  • 00:46:44.200 --> 00:46:47.210
  • HE LIKES TO SHOW OUT IN OUR LIVES, AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:46:47.230 --> 00:46:50.110
  • WE'RE SEEING HERE.
  • 00:46:50.130 --> 00:46:52.130
  • AND JUST KNOWING THAT WHAT LOOKS IMPOSSIBLE IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:46:52.150 --> 00:46:54.220
  • TODAY, GOD CAN DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:46:54.240 --> 00:46:56.170
  • HE CAN TURN SITUATIONS AROUND.
  • 00:46:56.190 --> 00:46:58.280
  • HE CAN CHANGE PEOPLE'S HEARTS, AND WHAT YOU MAY BE DREAMING
  • 00:46:59.000 --> 00:47:01.250
  • ABOUT -- YOU MAY THINK I DON'T HAVE A CONNECTION OR THE
  • 00:47:01.270 --> 00:47:04.130
  • EDUCATION OR THE EXPERIENCE, BUT
  • 00:47:04.150 --> 00:47:06.140
  • YOU KNOW WHAT? GOD DOES.
  • 00:47:06.160 --> 00:47:08.200
  • HE KNOWS HOW TO BRING IT ALL TOGETHER, AND FOR US TO EVEN
  • 00:47:08.220 --> 00:47:11.040
  • BE STANDING HERE AT THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA ON A BEAUTIFUL,
  • 00:47:11.060 --> 00:47:13.100
  • COLD NIGHT ON A SUNSET, YOU CAN FEEL THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:47:13.120 --> 00:47:16.090
  • YOU CAN FEEL THE BEAUTY OF HIS CREATION, AND YOU KNOW
  • 00:47:16.110 --> 00:47:18.040
  • SOMETHING SPECIAL IS HAPPENING.
  • 00:47:18.060 --> 00:47:21.260
  • AND I THINK, AGAIN, ABOUT JUST BEING A PART OF THAT.
  • 00:47:21.280 --> 00:47:25.180
  • WE'RE ALL A PART OF IT.
  • 00:47:25.200 --> 00:47:27.250
  • IT'S THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD, AND WHEN YOU STAY FAITHFUL --
  • 00:47:27.270 --> 00:47:31.100
  • YOUR PARENTS WERE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:47:31.120 --> 00:47:33.120
  • I SAW MY PARENTS FAITHFUL, VICTORIA'S, LAURIE'S,
  • 00:47:33.140 --> 00:47:35.100
  • YOURS, AS WELL.
  • 00:47:35.120 --> 00:47:37.130
  • YOUR FAITHFUL TO DO WHAT GOD'S CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:47:37.150 --> 00:47:39.170
  • SOMETIMES YOU CAN'T SEE IT, BUT WE'RE A PART OF SOMETHING
  • 00:47:39.190 --> 00:47:41.260
  • BIGGER, AND YOU KNOW THAT'S WHAT I BELIEVE.
  • 00:47:41.280 --> 00:47:44.020
  • I PRAY EVERY DAY, LORD, LET US TAKE GIANT STEPS
  • 00:47:44.040 --> 00:47:46.060
  • FOR YOUR KINGDOM.
  • 00:47:46.080 --> 00:47:48.090
  • WELL, THIS IS A STEP THAT CAN AFFECT A NATION OF ALMOST 1.4
  • 00:47:48.110 --> 00:47:50.100
  • BILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:47:50.120 --> 00:47:52.200
  • AGAIN, I JUST KEEP COMING BACK TO IT'S AN EXCITING,
  • 00:47:52.220 --> 00:47:55.110
  • IT'S AN HISTORIC TIME.
  • 00:47:55.130 --> 00:47:57.110
  • NEVER DREAMED I'D BE A MINISTER.
  • 00:47:57.130 --> 00:47:59.110
  • NEVER DREAMED WE'D BE ON THIS SIDE OF THE CAMERA RATHER THAN
  • 00:47:59.130 --> 00:48:02.150
  • THE OTHER SIDE, AND THEN, AGAIN, WE SAY, HEY, WE'RE
  • 00:48:02.170 --> 00:48:05.040
  • STANDING HERE IN BEJING.
  • 00:48:05.060 --> 00:48:06.220
  • JUST THE DOORS THAT GOD'S OPENING AND WHAT HE HAS IN
  • 00:48:06.240 --> 00:48:10.130
  • STORE, NOT JUST FOR TRINITY, NOT JUST FOR OUR LIVES, BUT
  • 00:48:10.150 --> 00:48:12.270
  • FOR YOUR OWN LIFE.
  • 00:48:12.290 --> 00:48:14.120
  • WHEN YOU STAY FAITHFUL, GOD WILL TAKE YOU PLACES
  • 00:48:14.140 --> 00:48:16.170
  • THAT YOU NEVER IMAGINED.
  • 00:48:16.190 --> 00:48:18.060
  • - YOU KNOW, YOU THINK ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE PRAYED FOR
  • 00:48:18.080 --> 00:48:20.180
  • THIS NATION.
  • 00:48:20.200 --> 00:48:22.100
  • GOD IS WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES, AND HE'S
  • 00:48:22.120 --> 00:48:24.210
  • WORKING THROUGH PEOPLE.
  • 00:48:24.230 --> 00:48:26.160
  • ALL THE PRAYERS THAT HAVE BEEN PRAYED FOR THIS NATION IN THE
  • 00:48:26.180 --> 00:48:30.060
  • PAST ARE NOW BEING UNFOLDED AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME.
  • 00:48:30.080 --> 00:48:34.150
  • SO THERE'S PEOPLE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW, THEY'RE THINKING,
  • 00:48:34.170 --> 00:48:37.160
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, MY FATHER WASN'T FAITHFUL.
  • 00:48:37.180 --> 00:48:39.290
  • MY FAMILY WASN'T FAITHFUL.
  • 00:48:40.010 --> 00:48:41.250
  • WELL, GOD'S GOD SOMEONE PRAYING FOR YOU, AND HE'S
  • 00:48:41.270 --> 00:48:44.210
  • WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES, AND THAT'S THE BEAUTIFUL THING.
  • 00:48:44.230 --> 00:48:47.120
  • NOW IT'S YOUR TURN TO HOLD ON, TO BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS GOT
  • 00:48:47.140 --> 00:48:51.140
  • SOMETHING IN YOUR FUTURE, THAT HE IS WORKING
  • 00:48:51.160 --> 00:48:54.040
  • BEHIND THE SCENES.
  • 00:48:54.060 --> 00:48:55.290
  • YOU CAN START YOUR GENERATIONAL BLESSING RIGHT
  • 00:48:56.010 --> 00:48:58.240
  • NOW, AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:48:58.260 --> 00:49:00.270
  • GOD HAS GOT YOU COVERED. HE LOVES US SO MUCH.
  • 00:49:00.290 --> 00:49:03.160
  • SO THAT'S REALLY EXCITING.
  • 00:49:03.180 --> 00:49:05.160
  • THESE PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY'RE IN FOR TO BE ABLE
  • 00:49:05.180 --> 00:49:08.100
  • TO RECEIVE THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:49:08.120 --> 00:49:09.260
  • THEY'LL NEVER MEET THE PEOPLE WHO PRAYED FOR THEM.
  • 00:49:09.280 --> 00:49:12.040
  • - TO BRING THE BIG LOVE.
  • 00:49:12.060 --> 00:49:14.000
  • - TO BRING THE BIG LOVE.
  • 00:49:14.020 --> 00:49:15.220
  • EVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE SAYING JUST COMPLETELY RESONATES;
  • 00:49:15.240 --> 00:49:18.250
  • THAT WHAT IF WE WOULD HAVE STOPPED? BUT MAYBE YOU HAVE
  • 00:49:18.270 --> 00:49:24.040
  • STOPPED. GOD IS FAITHFUL, EVEN AT TIMES WHEN WE'RE NOT.
  • 00:49:24.060 --> 00:49:28.280
  • SOMETIMES WE LOSE FAITH, AND WE THINK, OH, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:49:29.000 --> 00:49:32.100
  • THAT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:49:32.120 --> 00:49:34.030
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:49:34.050 --> 00:49:36.110
  • HE ALWAYS COMES THROUGH FOR US IN THE WAY HE WANTS TO DO IT.
  • 00:49:36.130 --> 00:49:40.280
  • AND HE'LL DO IT JUST LIKE JOEL SAID, WHENEVER HE GETS THE
  • 00:49:41.000 --> 00:49:45.020
  • GLORY, HOWEVER HE GETS THE GLORY.
  • 00:49:45.040 --> 00:49:47.040
  • - I LOVE THAT, LAURIE, BECAUSE I SEE THAT SO OFTEN.
  • 00:49:47.060 --> 00:49:49.190
  • WE GIVE UP ON A DREAM, BUT JUST BECAUSE WE GIVE UP
  • 00:49:49.210 --> 00:49:51.100
  • DOESN'T MEAN GOD GAVE UP.
  • 00:49:51.120 --> 00:49:53.110
  • I LOVE THAT IN PHILIPPIANS, IT SAYS WHAT GOD STARTED IN YOUR
  • 00:49:53.130 --> 00:49:55.210
  • LIFE, HE'S GOING TO FINISH. SO YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:49:55.230 --> 00:49:57.230
  • THERE'S TIMES WE ALL GET DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:49:57.250 --> 00:50:00.030
  • I DON'T THINK THAT'S EVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:50:00.050 --> 00:50:03.010
  • BUT YOU GOT TO KNOW THAT SEED THAT GOT PUT INTO YOU IS
  • 00:50:03.030 --> 00:50:05.130
  • STILL ALIVE; THE PROMISE HE PUT IN YOU.
  • 00:50:05.150 --> 00:50:07.170
  • YOU THINK ABOUT ABRAHAM AND SARAH, THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:50:07.190 --> 00:50:10.010
  • GOD, IT'S BEEN 20 YEARS, WE CAN'T HAVE A BABY.
  • 00:50:10.030 --> 00:50:12.240
  • BUT THEY TRADE ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT WAYS.
  • 00:50:12.260 --> 00:50:15.140
  • BUT WHAT GOD HAS PUT IN YOU, GOD IS STILL GOING
  • 00:50:15.160 --> 00:50:17.180
  • TO BRING TO PASS.
  • 00:50:17.200 --> 00:50:19.190
  • SO WHY DON'T YOU DARE BELIEVE, AND LET THIS BE A TIME IN YOUR
  • 00:50:19.210 --> 00:50:21.150
  • OWN LIFE WHERE SOMETHING SPARKS ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:50:21.170 --> 00:50:23.180
  • SAY, GOD, YOU'RE DOING IT THERE IN BEJING WITH MATT AND
  • 00:50:23.200 --> 00:50:26.050
  • LAURIE AND VICTORIA, AND YOU CAN DO IT IN MY LIFE, AS WELL.
  • 00:50:26.070 --> 00:50:28.230
  • - YOU KNOW, THE THOUGHT THAT YOU'RE PREACHING RIGHT NOW AND
  • 00:50:28.250 --> 00:50:32.130
  • YOU'RE TALKING, THINK OF THOSE WORDS FROM MY FATHER TO HEAR.
  • 00:50:32.150 --> 00:50:38.170
  • HE HAD A DREAM AND A VISION AND A THOUGHT, AND MAYBE
  • 00:50:38.190 --> 00:50:41.250
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SEE IT, BUT YOUR CHILDREN'S
  • 00:50:41.270 --> 00:50:45.140
  • GENERATION, OR YOUR GRANDCHILDREN'S GENERATION.
  • 00:50:45.160 --> 00:50:48.130
  • SO THE IDEA THAT YOU NEVER GIVE UP, WE SHOULD NEVER GIVE
  • 00:50:48.150 --> 00:50:51.120
  • UP BECAUSE THIS ULTIMATELY COULD BE FULFILLED EVEN
  • 00:50:51.140 --> 00:50:55.220
  • IN THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 00:50:55.240 --> 00:50:57.290
  • SO AS WE'RE STANDING HERE ON THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA, WE'RE
  • 00:50:58.010 --> 00:51:02.050
  • STANDING ON A LITTLE PLATFORM THAT SOMEBODY BUILT FOR US, SO
  • 00:51:02.070 --> 00:51:05.190
  • WHOEVER BUILT THAT FOR US, THANK YOU.
  • 00:51:05.210 --> 00:51:07.230
  • IT KIND OF GOT US UP SO WE COULD HAVE THE BEAUTIFUL VIEW.
  • 00:51:07.250 --> 00:51:11.270
  • I THINK OF STANDING ON GENERATIONS OF
  • 00:51:11.290 --> 00:51:15.080
  • PEOPLE THAT HAVE PRAYED.
  • 00:51:15.100 --> 00:51:17.280
  • LET'S WIND THE CLOCK BACK REAL FAR.
  • 00:51:18.000 --> 00:51:20.250
  • HOW ABOUT TO THE SILK ROUTE AND THE TRADE ROUTES WHEN THE
  • 00:51:20.270 --> 00:51:23.270
  • GOSPEL CAME TO THIS PART OF THE WORLD FOR THE FIRST TIME?
  • 00:51:23.290 --> 00:51:26.120
  • HOW ABOUT MARCO POLO WHO CREATED SOME OF THIS?
  • 00:51:26.140 --> 00:51:29.170
  • AND THEN WATCHMAN NEE AND SOME OF THE THINGS
  • 00:51:29.190 --> 00:51:32.100
  • THAT HAVE HAPPENED?
  • 00:51:32.120 --> 00:51:34.020
  • THERE'S SUCH TRADITION, AND THERE'S HISTORY,
  • 00:51:34.040 --> 00:51:35.280
  • AND THERE'S SUCH PRAYER BATHED IN THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:51:36.000 --> 00:51:38.060
  • - SO MANY NAMES WE'LL NEVER KNOW, BUT GOD DOES, AND IT'S
  • 00:51:38.080 --> 00:51:40.230
  • ALL WRITTEN DOWN.
  • 00:51:40.250 --> 00:51:44.070
  • - OKAY, AS I LOOK THIS WAY, I WISH TELEVISION COULD KIND OF
  • 00:51:44.090 --> 00:51:50.270
  • PICK UP AND CAPTURE THE NUANCE OF WHAT WE'RE SEEING.
  • 00:51:50.290 --> 00:51:55.240
  • WE'RE SEEING MOUNTAIN RANGE AFTER MOUNTAIN RANGE AFTER
  • 00:51:55.260 --> 00:51:58.070
  • MOUNTAIN RANGE AND DEPTH AND BEAUTY.
  • 00:51:58.090 --> 00:52:01.200
  • AND I CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE JUST A FEW MOMENTS OF SUNLIGHT
  • 00:52:01.220 --> 00:52:05.240
  • LEFT, AND WE'RE ON THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA, AND THERE
  • 00:52:05.260 --> 00:52:09.010
  • AREN'T ANY GENERATORS UP HERE, SO WHEN THE SUN
  • 00:52:09.030 --> 00:52:11.080
  • GOES DOWN, WE'RE DONE.
  • 00:52:11.100 --> 00:52:12.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:52:12.280 --> 00:52:14.150
  • - OUR LIPS ARE HARDLY TALKING RIGHT?
  • 00:52:14.170 --> 00:52:16.020
  • - NO HEATERS UP HERE EITHER.
  • 00:52:16.040 --> 00:52:17.240
  • - AND IN THIS LAST FEW MINUTES, JOEL, JUST PRAY.
  • 00:52:17.260 --> 00:52:21.070
  • LET'S JUST KIND OF FINISH.
  • 00:52:21.090 --> 00:52:24.110
  • WHAT AN AMAZING KIND OF SETTING FOR US, AND FOR THOSE
  • 00:52:24.130 --> 00:52:29.210
  • OF YOU WHO HAVE TUNED IN AND BEEN A PART OF WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:52:29.230 --> 00:52:32.230
  • DOING, WE'RE REALLY COMPLETING ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING
  • 00:52:32.250 --> 00:52:36.050
  • STORIES THAT REALLY WE COULD TALK ABOUT.
  • 00:52:36.070 --> 00:52:39.040
  • WE'RE CONTINUING THIS STORY LINE.
  • 00:52:39.060 --> 00:52:44.070
  • AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS BROADCASTING RIGHT HERE AND
  • 00:52:44.090 --> 00:52:48.170
  • RIGHT INTO THE FRONT DOOR OF THE POWER BASE OF BEJING
  • 00:52:48.190 --> 00:52:54.140
  • CHINA, CCTV CHINA CENTRAL TELEVISION.
  • 00:52:54.160 --> 00:52:58.280
  • SO JUST YOUR FINAL THOUGHTS AS WE HAVE THE LAST FEW MOMENTS
  • 00:52:59.000 --> 00:53:01.250
  • HERE IN BEJING TOGETHER.
  • 00:53:01.270 --> 00:53:04.060
  • - GOD IS A FAITHFUL GOD. HE'S IN CONTROL.
  • 00:53:04.080 --> 00:53:06.160
  • HE HAS YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS HANDS.
  • 00:53:06.180 --> 00:53:08.120
  • HE'S GUIDING YOU AND DIRECTING YOU.
  • 00:53:08.140 --> 00:53:10.090
  • EVEN WHEN YOU DON'T SEE THINGS HANDS, YOU GOT TO KNOW GOD IS
  • 00:53:10.110 --> 00:53:13.100
  • WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES, AND AT THE RIGHT TILE, HE'S GOING
  • 00:53:13.120 --> 00:53:16.060
  • TO CONNECT DOTS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:53:16.080 --> 00:53:18.030
  • JUST LIKE WE'RE SEEING HERE, THIS FEELS LIKE EVEN A DOT
  • 00:53:18.050 --> 00:53:19.290
  • BEING CONNECTED, THAT THIS IS OPENING.
  • 00:53:20.010 --> 00:53:21.210
  • KNOW THAT HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:53:21.230 --> 00:53:23.170
  • HE'S IN CONTROL, AND I'D LOVE TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:53:23.190 --> 00:53:26.020
  • LORD, THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO
  • 00:53:26.040 --> 00:53:28.020
  • BE HERE IN BEJING.
  • 00:53:28.040 --> 00:53:29.260
  • LORD, WE KNOW THAT WE'RE NOT HERE BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:53:29.280 --> 00:53:32.090
  • IT'S A PART OF YOUR DIVINE DESTINY, AND, LORD, WE STAND
  • 00:53:32.110 --> 00:53:35.000
  • HUMBLY BEFORE YOU, AND WE THANK YOU FOR DOORS THAT

  • YOU'RE OPENING, AND THANK YOU FOR THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE GONE
