  • OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:01:15.090 --> 00:01:16.240
  • THE LORD IS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:01:16.260 --> 00:01:18.260
  • BECAUSE GRACE IS ALL ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:20.170
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT THE LORD JESUS.
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:22.020
  • IS NOT ABOUT YOU AND I.
  • 00:01:22.040 --> 00:01:23.240
  • IT'S NOT A GRACE TEACHING.
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:24.270
  • IT IS THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:01:24.290 --> 00:01:26.120
  • - WOW.
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:28.010

  • REVOLUTION HAPPENING.
  • 00:01:31.100 --> 00:01:33.080

  • THESE PRINCIPLES CAN BECOME YOUR PILLARS FOR LIFE.
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:02:00.080
  • - MATT CROUCH: WHERE DID GRACE COME FROM?
  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:04.060
  • WE'RE SITTING HERE WITH THE REPRESENTATION.
  • 00:02:04.080 --> 00:02:08.110
  • WE'RE WAKING UP TO HOPE AND GRACE HERE ON TV.
  • 00:02:08.130 --> 00:02:11.290
  • 7 A.M. EASTERN AND PACIFIC.
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:13.120
  • JOSEPH, WHERE DID YOUR -- YOU COULD HAVE PREACHED
  • 00:02:13.140 --> 00:02:16.240
  • COLOSSIANS AND YOU COULD HAVE WORKED YOUR
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:19.190
  • WAY THROUGH. BUT YOU --
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:21.140
  • - JOSEPH PRINCE: AND I DO.
  • 00:02:21.160 --> 00:02:23.220
  • - BUT YOU CHOSE THOUGH TO ALWAYS FIND THE GOSPEL
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:26.100
  • OF GRACE INSIDE OF THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:29.230
  • SO WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:32.080
  • - I THINK PART OF IT'S -- I WAS RELEASED THIS YEAR.
  • 00:02:32.100 --> 00:02:34.290
  • YOU'RE LOOKING AT A MAN WHO REALLY BELIEVES LIKE
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:37.080
  • TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD YOU NEED TO CONFESS EVERY SIN.
  • 00:02:37.100 --> 00:02:40.100
  • SOMEHOW IT DIDN'T BOTHER MOST PEOPLE BUT IT
  • 00:02:40.120 --> 00:02:43.160
  • BOTHERED ME AS A 17 YEAR OLD.
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:47.010
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT WHEN I HEARD THE TEACHING
  • 00:02:47.030 --> 00:02:49.290
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME, UNLESS YOU CONFESS EVERY
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:52.180
  • SIN, YOU'RE OUT OF FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:55.210
  • AND BACK IN SINGAPORE WE HAVE A NATIONAL SERVICE
  • 00:02:55.230 --> 00:02:58.030
  • IN THE ARMY.
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:03:00.050
  • EVERY 17 YEAR OLD HAS TO GO THERE.
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:02.020
  • I NEEDED GOD'S INTERVENTION.
  • 00:03:02.040 --> 00:03:03.210
  • I NEEDED HIS FAVOR.
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:05.120
  • I NEEDED HIS HELP IN THE ARMY, SO I WOULD BE
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:07.120
  • RUNNING AND THE INSTRUCTORS WOULD BE
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:09.060
  • USING PROFANITY IS AND ALL THAT AND I'D GET
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.290
  • ANGRY AND BETTER, AND I'D SAY OH NO, I'M OUT
  • 00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:12.190
  • OF FELLOWSHIP.
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:14.130
  • SO I STARTED CONFESSING WHILE I'M HOLDING MY
  • 00:03:14.150 --> 00:03:15.270
  • M-16 RUNNING.
  • 00:03:15.290 --> 00:03:17.190
  • IDENTIFYING SAYING LORD, FORGIVE ME FOR HAVING
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:19.190
  • THAT RESENTMENT AGAINST THEM.
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:21.090
  • I'M CONFESSING MY SINS ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:22.230
  • - ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:03:22.250 --> 00:03:24.170
  • - IF I'M TALKING TO YOU AND I FELT LIKE I'M
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:26.080
  • EXAGGERATING I NEED TO STOP IN FRONT OF YOU AND
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:28.010
  • GO LIKE THIS, [ WHISPERING ] CONFESSING
  • 00:03:28.030 --> 00:03:29.040
  • MY SINS.
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:30.140
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS DOESN'T BOTHER MOST
  • 00:03:30.160 --> 00:03:32.140
  • PEOPLE, BUT IT SORT OF LIKE THIS NEED TO BE
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:33.280
  • RIGHT WITH GOD.
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:35.190
  • I WAS IN A NEVER ENDING CYCLE OF DEPRESSION AND,
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:40.130
  • YOU KNOW, ALL WANTING TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD UNTIL
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:42.230
  • ONE DAY, YOU KNOW, IT ALL CAME TO AN END.
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:45.020
  • I THOUGHT I WAS LOSING MY MIND.
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:46.140
  • I NEARLY DID, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:48.080
  • OF COURSE SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT I'VE GONE TO
  • 00:03:48.100 --> 00:03:50.010
  • THAT POINT ALREADY, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.250
  • WE'RE ALL IN THE SAME THING, BUT I REMEMBER
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:54.210
  • WHEN GOD OPENED MY EYES TO THE FACT THAT
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:57.170
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A GIFT THAT WAS PURCHASED BY THE
  • 00:03:57.190 --> 00:04:00.150
  • BLOOD OF JESUS.
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:02.240
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS PERCEIVED MANY TIMES AS
  • 00:04:02.260 --> 00:04:05.120
  • RIGHT DOING, RIGHT?
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:08.050
  • BUT IN THE SCRIPTURES, IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:12.080
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A GIFT, AND THE BIBLE SAYS IN
  • 00:04:12.100 --> 00:04:14.110
  • ROMANS 5: 17 THAT IF MY ONE MAN'S OFFENSE DEATH
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:17.080
  • REIGNED BY ONE, MUCH MORE THOSE WHO RECEIVE
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:19.120
  • ABUNDANCE OF GRACE AND THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:21.220
  • SHALL REIGN IN LIFE.
  • 00:04:21.240 --> 00:04:23.290
  • SO THIS WERE THE 2 THINGS THAT GOD -- YOU KNOW.
  • 00:04:24.010 --> 00:04:25.280
  • AND I LEARNED THAT FROM THE WORD OF FAITH ACTUALLY.
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.240
  • THE FIRST TIME I GOT HOLD OF THAT VERSE, YOUR DAD
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:29.140
  • WAS PART OF IT, YOUR DAD AND BROTHER HAGIN AND ALL
  • 00:04:29.160 --> 00:04:31.200
  • THE REST.
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:34.100
  • AND IT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME ALWAYS, ROMANS 5: 17.
  • 00:04:34.120 --> 00:04:36.240
  • THESE 2 GIFTS.
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:38.260
  • IF YOU HAVE THESE 2 GIFTS, ABUNDANCE OF GRACE.
  • 00:04:38.280 --> 00:04:41.000
  • AND SOMETIMES PEOPLE SAY YOU PREACH TOO MUCH ON GRACE.
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:43.040
  • WELL, WE NEED AN ABUNDANCE OF GRACE TO
  • 00:04:43.060 --> 00:04:44.110
  • REIGN IN LIFE.
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:46.100
  • SO ABUNDANCE OF GRACE AND THE GIFT, NOT THE REWARD,
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:48.050
  • THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:51.150
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:04:51.170 --> 00:04:53.050
  • IF YOU ACCEPT THIS, YOU WILL REIGN IN LIFE.
  • 00:04:53.070 --> 00:04:54.270
  • SO I REALIZED THAT WAIT A MINUTE, YOU KNOW, WHAT IS
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:56.180
  • THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS?
  • 00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:58.090
  • I WAS SHARING WITH THE PASTORS THIS MORNING
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:05:00.120
  • THAT, EVEN FOR AMERICA REGARDLESS OF WHO RUNS
  • 00:05:00.140 --> 00:05:02.240
  • AMERICA, THE BIBLE SAYS IN PROVERBS 14,
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:06.280
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION.
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:09.200
  • NOT THE ONES RUNNING IT, RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:12.050
  • AND RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGH GOD IT'S A GIFT.
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:15.020
  • SO IT'S THE BELIEVERS, ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:17.200
  • THE MORE WE PREACH THE GOSPEL LIKE TBN DOING,
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:19.050
  • MORE PEOPLE ARE SAVED, RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL EXALT
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:21.080
  • THIS NATION.
  • 00:05:21.100 --> 00:05:23.230
  • IT'S FOR THE LACK OF PREACHING THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:05:23.250 --> 00:05:25.090
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:27.050
  • WHOEVER WE PUT IN THE WHITE HOUSE OR WHATEVER,
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:28.260
  • THAT'S SIGNIFICANT, BUT I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:30.280
  • GET BACK TO THE GOSPEL, AND THE GOSPEL IS A
  • 00:05:31.000 --> 00:05:32.210
  • GOSPEL OF GRACE.
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:34.240
  • PAUL CALLS IT THE GOSPEL OF GRACE, THE GOSPEL OF PEACE.
  • 00:05:34.260 --> 00:05:37.150
  • THERE'S NO OTHER TERM FOR IT, SO WHEN I FIRST
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:40.120
  • DISCOVERED THIS AS A TEENAGER, IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

  • ISN'T THAT WHAT WE PREACHERS TELL PEOPLE?
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:06:00.240
  • ISN'T IT THAT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT NO MATTER WHAT
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:02.190
  • GOOD YOU DO, IF YOU'RE A SINNER YOU'RE STILL
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:04.290

  • THAT WE ARE SAVED BY ONE MAN'S OBEDIENCE BY AN ACT

  • OF SIN WE HAVE NOW BECOME UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AGAIN?
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:28.050

  • 00:31:32.100 --> 00:31:34.100
  • HOPE AND GRACE. AMEN. I CANNOT UNDERSTAND THAT.
  • 00:31:34.120 --> 00:31:40.180
  • IT IS ALMOST LIKE THERE'S A VEIL OVER THEIR EYES.
  • 00:31:40.200 --> 00:31:45.130
  • ORTHODOXY BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THEY GETTING
  • 00:31:45.150 --> 00:31:48.090
  • SAVED? WITH ALL YOUR CORRECT DOCTRINE, HOW MANY ARE
  • 00:31:48.110 --> 00:31:52.220
  • RESPONDING TO JESUS AT YOUR PREACHING?
  • 00:31:52.240 --> 00:31:56.250
  • IN THIS HOUSE, THE MINISTRY OF JOEL OSTEEN
  • 00:31:56.270 --> 00:32:01.070
  • HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE MORE THAN 50 PERCENT TUNING IN
  • 00:32:01.090 --> 00:32:04.040
  • WHO ARE NOT CHURCH GOERS, WHO ARE NOT BORN AGAIN
  • 00:32:04.060 --> 00:32:06.240
  • PEOPLE TUNING IN, AND THEY KNOW THAT GOD IS A
  • 00:32:06.260 --> 00:32:09.270
  • GOOD GOD. AND THEY SEE IT ON THE REFLECTION
  • 00:32:09.290 --> 00:32:12.130
  • OF THE HANDSOME FACE.
  • 00:32:12.150 --> 00:32:14.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:32:14.040 --> 00:32:17.020
  • MATT CROUCH: IF SOMEBODY IS THINKING RIGHT NOW ABOUT
  • 00:32:17.040 --> 00:32:24.100
  • THEMSELF, MOST LIKELY THEY'RE THINKING
  • 00:32:24.120 --> 00:32:27.110
  • THEY'RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:32:27.130 --> 00:32:30.090
  • MOST LIKELY THEY'RE SAYING LOOK AT THOSE
  • 00:32:30.110 --> 00:32:32.150
  • FOLKS, YOU ALL GOT SHOWERS THIS MORNING, YOU
  • 00:32:32.170 --> 00:32:36.260
  • SMELL GOOD, ALL THE-- YOU LOOK GOOD, AND YOU JUST--
  • 00:32:36.280 --> 00:32:41.280
  • PEOPLE THAT ARE SOMETIMES VIEWING, THEY JUST DON'T
  • 00:32:42.000 --> 00:32:46.030
  • FEEL THAT, OR THEY'RE JUST SO SELF-CONSCIOUS,
  • 00:32:46.050 --> 00:32:51.170
  • SO WHAT IS KIND OF AN INTRODUCTORY TO A MESSAGE
  • 00:32:51.190 --> 00:32:56.050
  • OF GRACE THAT STARTS GETTING THEM
  • 00:32:56.070 --> 00:32:57.290
  • OUTSIDE OF THEMSELVES?
  • 00:32:58.010 --> 00:32:59.160
  • AND THE EXACT PHRASE IS, WHEN I STARTED READING
  • 00:32:59.180 --> 00:33:03.110
  • DESTINED TO REIGN A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, YOU
  • 00:33:03.130 --> 00:33:07.160
  • WERE FRAMING SOME OF THE THINGS THAT I THOUGHT,
  • 00:33:07.180 --> 00:33:10.070
  • AND I FELT LIKE YOU HAD PUT WORDS ON PAGES TO
  • 00:33:10.090 --> 00:33:13.200
  • WHAT I WAS FEELING AND KNOWING ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:33:13.220 --> 00:33:17.070
  • SO HOW DO YOU GET SOMEBODY EXCITED ABOUT
  • 00:33:17.090 --> 00:33:20.190
  • THIS MESSAGE IF THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW MUCH
  • 00:33:20.210 --> 00:33:24.270
  • ABOUT IT AND THEY JUST THINK THE LAST THING I
  • 00:33:24.290 --> 00:33:27.290
  • WOULD WANT SOMEBODY TO DO IS WATCH THIS BROADCAST
  • 00:33:28.010 --> 00:33:31.140
  • CONCERNING HOPE AND GRACE AND CONFUSE IT
  • 00:33:31.160 --> 00:33:34.200
  • WITH REGULAR CHURCH.
  • 00:33:34.220 --> 00:33:36.070
  • WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT REGULAR CHURCH.
  • 00:33:36.090 --> 00:33:37.280
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE IDEA THAT THIS IS A
  • 00:33:38.000 --> 00:33:41.030
  • COMPLETELY REVOLUTIONARY CONCEPT, WHICH FOR SOME
  • 00:33:41.050 --> 00:33:46.080
  • REASON FEELS LIKE A REVOLUTIONARY CONCEPT.
  • 00:33:46.100 --> 00:33:48.240
  • IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER FELT LIKE THIS.
  • 00:33:48.260 --> 00:33:50.130
  • IT SHOULD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY.
  • 00:33:50.150 --> 00:33:52.050
  • HOW DO YOU GET THEM INTRODUCED TO THIS?
  • 00:33:52.070 --> 00:33:54.050
  • - I THINK YOUR VIEWERS, WHETHER THEY ARE
  • 00:33:54.070 --> 00:33:56.100
  • BELIEVERS OR NOT, THEY ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE
  • 00:33:56.120 --> 00:33:58.100
  • FACT THAT RELIGION AS IT IS IS NOT WORKING, RIGHT?
  • 00:33:58.120 --> 00:34:04.020
  • AND WE'RE NOT ABOUT RELIGION. IN FACT,
  • 00:34:04.040 --> 00:34:05.210
  • IT'S JUST BONE IN OUR BODIES THE WAY I SEE IT.
  • 00:34:05.230 --> 00:34:08.210
  • BUT BEING SPIRITUAL IS SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:34:08.230 --> 00:34:11.050
  • THE WILL WANTS TO BE SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:34:11.070 --> 00:34:13.120
  • AT LEAST MOST PEOPLE I KNOW.
  • 00:34:13.140 --> 00:34:15.030
  • AND THEY EQUATE, THEY SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
  • 00:34:15.050 --> 00:34:18.030
  • RELIGIOUS AND BEING SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:34:18.050 --> 00:34:20.140
  • NOW JESUS IS SPIRITUAL, BUT WHEN HE CAME, AND I
  • 00:34:20.160 --> 00:34:23.260
  • THINK YOUR VIEWERS CAN IDENTIFY WITH THE FACT
  • 00:34:23.280 --> 00:34:25.130
  • THAT JESUS WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE RELIGIOUS
  • 00:34:25.150 --> 00:34:29.240
  • LEADERS OF HIS DAY.
  • 00:34:29.260 --> 00:34:31.170
  • IN FACT, HIS STRONGEST WORDS-- HE SPOKE WORDS OF
  • 00:34:31.190 --> 00:34:36.090
  • LOVE, WORDS OF SPIRIT AND LIFE, BUT HIS STRONGEST
  • 00:34:36.110 --> 00:34:39.120
  • WORDS WERE RESERVED FOR THE PHARISEES, NOT FOR
  • 00:34:39.140 --> 00:34:42.230
  • THE PROSTITUTES, NOT FOR THE TAX COLLECTORS
  • 00:34:42.250 --> 00:34:46.150
  • OR THE SOCIAL OUTCAST.
  • 00:34:46.170 --> 00:34:48.220
  • YOU NEVER FIND JESUS CALLING THEM
  • 00:34:48.240 --> 00:34:49.260
  • YOU BROOD OF VIPERS.
  • 00:34:49.280 --> 00:34:51.250
  • BUT YOU FIND HIM SAYING THAT TO THE PHARISEES.
  • 00:34:51.270 --> 00:34:56.080
  • PHARISEES WHO KNEW THE SCRIPTURES BACK TO BACK,
  • 00:34:56.100 --> 00:34:59.010
  • PHARISEES WHO HAVE A HOLIER THAN THOU
  • 00:34:59.030 --> 00:35:01.050
  • ATTITUDE, PHARISEES WHO TRUST IN THEIR OWN
  • 00:35:01.070 --> 00:35:03.190
  • ESTABLISHED, THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS AS OPPOSED
  • 00:35:03.210 --> 00:35:06.230
  • TO SUBMITTING TO THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:35:06.250 --> 00:35:09.110
  • PHARISEES WHO BOAST ABOUT WHO THEY ARE,
  • 00:35:09.130 --> 00:35:12.190
  • BEING CONSCIOUS OF SELF, STATUS AND ALL THAT.
  • 00:35:12.210 --> 00:35:14.160
  • THESE ARE THE ONES WHO WERE NOT HAPPY WITH JESUS.
  • 00:35:14.180 --> 00:35:17.180
  • IN FACT, THEY ARE THE ONES THAT FOUND
  • 00:35:17.200 --> 00:35:21.070
  • FAULT WITH JESUS.
  • 00:35:21.090 --> 00:35:22.180
  • I LOVE LUKE 15 HOW HE SAYS THAT THE PHARISEES
  • 00:35:22.200 --> 00:35:25.110
  • CAME AND THEN JESUS WENT TO THEM AND SAYS IF ANY
  • 00:35:25.130 --> 00:35:28.200
  • MAN WILL COME AFTER ME, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF.
  • 00:35:28.220 --> 00:35:31.280
  • IT'S ALMOST A STANDARD WAS GIVEN.
  • 00:35:32.000 --> 00:35:33.200
  • BUT IN THE VERY NEXT CHAPTER LUKE 15, THE
  • 00:35:33.220 --> 00:35:36.190
  • PARABLE OF THE PRODIGAL SON, IT STARTS BY SAYING
  • 00:35:36.210 --> 00:35:39.240
  • THEN DREW NEAR ALL THE SINNERS TO HIM.
  • 00:35:39.260 --> 00:35:42.090
  • THEN HE STARTED SHARING ABOUT A MAN HAD A HUNDRED
  • 00:35:42.110 --> 00:35:45.070
  • SHEEP AND HE LOST ONE.
  • 00:35:45.090 --> 00:35:48.120
  • THIS SHEPHERD WILL LEAVE THE 99--
  • 00:35:48.140 --> 00:35:50.100
  • NUMBER ONE, YOU DON'T FIND A SHEPHERD LIKE THAT.
  • 00:35:50.120 --> 00:35:52.010
  • WHO WILL LEAVE 99 TO FIND THE ONE THAT'S LOST?
  • 00:35:52.030 --> 00:35:54.120
  • YOU'RE GONNA JUST FACTOR IN YOUR LOSS.
  • 00:35:54.140 --> 00:35:56.140
  • BUT THIS SHEPHERD WILL LEAVE THE 99 TO FIND ONE.
  • 00:35:56.160 --> 00:36:00.070
  • AND THEN WHEN HE FINDS THAT ONE, I LOVE THE FACT
  • 00:36:00.090 --> 00:36:02.130
  • IT SAYS UNTIL HE FINDS IT.
  • 00:36:02.150 --> 00:36:05.040
  • AND WHEN HE FINDS THE ONE, HE PUT IT ON HIS
  • 00:36:05.060 --> 00:36:06.290
  • SHOULDERS. LOOK AT THIS. THIS IS EXTRA.
  • 00:36:07.010 --> 00:36:10.070
  • HE GOES TO HIS FRIEND AND SAYS LET'S PARTY, LET'S
  • 00:36:10.090 --> 00:36:12.050
  • CELEBRATE WITH ME, I FOUND THE SHEEP.
  • 00:36:12.070 --> 00:36:14.000
  • WHAT SHEPHERD DOES THAT? ONLY ONE. HIM.
  • 00:36:14.020 --> 00:36:17.220
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE SAID THIS, LIKEWISE
  • 00:36:17.240 --> 00:36:21.060
  • THERE IS JOY IN HEAVEN OVER ONE SINNER THAT
  • 00:36:21.080 --> 00:36:24.230
  • REPENTS, MORE THAN 99 THAT NEEDS TO REPENT.
  • 00:36:24.250 --> 00:36:28.220
  • HE CALLS IT REPENTANCE.
  • 00:36:28.240 --> 00:36:30.160
  • AND THAT ONE, I ASK MYSELF LORD, TELL ME HOW
  • 00:36:30.180 --> 00:36:34.260
  • DID A SHEEP REPENT?
  • 00:36:34.280 --> 00:36:37.010
  • THE SHEEP WAS LOST, THE SHEPHERD SOUGHT FOR THE
  • 00:36:37.030 --> 00:36:39.120
  • SHEEP UNTIL HE FOUND IT.
  • 00:36:39.140 --> 00:36:42.260
  • THE SHEPHERD PICKED THE SHEEP UP.
  • 00:36:42.280 --> 00:36:44.150
  • HE PUT IT ON HIS STRONG SHOULDERS.
  • 00:36:44.170 --> 00:36:46.150
  • WHAT DID THE SHEEP DO?
  • 00:36:46.170 --> 00:36:48.020
  • MATT CROUCH: NOTHING.
  • 00:36:48.040 --> 00:36:49.280
  • - ACCEPT. CONSENT TO BE LOVED, CONSENT TO BE CARRIED,
  • 00:36:50.000 --> 00:36:54.140
  • CONSENT TO REST ON HIS STRONG SHOULDERS.
  • 00:36:54.160 --> 00:36:57.030
  • AND ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS JUST CONSENT.
  • 00:36:57.050 --> 00:36:58.280
  • SALVATION STARTS WHEN YOU CONSENT TO BE LOVED BY HIM.
  • 00:36:59.000 --> 00:37:03.030
  • BUT HE GIVES US MORE GRACE.
  • 00:37:03.220 --> 00:37:05.140
  • THIS IS WHY IT SAYS GOD OPPOSES THE PROUD
  • 00:37:05.160 --> 00:37:08.070
  • BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.
  • 00:37:08.090 --> 00:37:11.050
  • - WHEN SIN FIRST CAME INTO THE WORLD, THE FIRST
  • 00:37:12.010 --> 00:37:14.170
  • THING THAT ADAM AND EVE DID, THEY HID FROM GOD
  • 00:37:14.190 --> 00:37:17.240
  • AND THEY WERE ASHAMED.
  • 00:37:17.260 --> 00:37:20.240
  • SO SIN BRINGS FEAR, I HEARD YOUR VOICE,
  • 00:37:20.260 --> 00:37:23.030
  • AND I WAS AFRAID AND I WAS ASHAMED.
  • 00:37:23.050 --> 00:37:26.060
  • GRACE TAKES AWAY THE FEAR AND THE SHAME SO THAT WE
  • 00:37:26.080 --> 00:37:30.090
  • CAN HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WITHOUT
  • 00:37:30.110 --> 00:37:33.050
  • FEAR AND SHAME.
  • 00:37:33.070 --> 00:37:34.250
  • THAT'S GRACE, AND THAT UNMERITED, UNDESERVED
  • 00:37:34.270 --> 00:37:38.260
  • FAVOR OF GOD IS WHAT CAUSES ME TO LOVE HIM
  • 00:37:38.280 --> 00:37:42.050
  • WITH ALL OF MY HEART.
  • 00:37:42.070 --> 00:37:44.130
  • ANNOUNCER: HERE AT THE BEGINNING OF 2017,
  • 00:37:44.150 --> 00:37:47.040
  • THE TRINITY BROADCASTING FAMILY OF NETWORKS INTRODUCED
  • 00:37:47.060 --> 00:37:50.090
  • FOUR PILLARS OF TRUTH: THE BLESSED LIFE.
  • 00:37:50.110 --> 00:37:55.050
  • GRACE.
  • 00:37:55.070 --> 00:37:56.210
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY.
  • 00:37:56.230 --> 00:37:59.050
  • AND HOPE.
  • 00:37:59.070 --> 00:38:01.260
  • YOU CAN APPROACH THE THRONE OF THE LIVING GOD
  • 00:38:01.280 --> 00:38:04.070
  • WITH CONFIDENCE AND DISCOVER HIS AMAZING GRACE.
  • 00:38:04.090 --> 00:38:08.130
  • TODAY HE OFFERS EVERY ONE OF US THIS
  • 00:38:08.150 --> 00:38:10.230
  • PILLAR FOR LIFE.
  • 00:38:10.250 --> 00:38:13.040
  • GRACE.
  • 00:38:13.060 --> 00:38:15.190
  • JOSEPH PRINCE: I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS IMPRESSION--
  • 00:38:18.260 --> 00:38:20.140
  • I BELIEVE IT'S OF THE FLESH.
  • 00:38:20.160 --> 00:38:22.030
  • IT'S VERY EASY TO BELIEVE LEGALISM, RELIGION,
  • 00:38:22.050 --> 00:38:26.070
  • BECAUSE IT APPEALS TO THE FLESH.
  • 00:38:26.090 --> 00:38:28.250
  • GRACE IS SOMETHING THAT IT TAKES THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:38:28.270 --> 00:38:31.180
  • TO ILLICIT IT.
  • 00:38:31.200 --> 00:38:33.190
  • TO SAY DO GOOD, GET GOOD; DO BAD, GET BAD.
  • 00:38:33.210 --> 00:38:37.080
  • ANYONE CAN TEACH THAT.
  • 00:38:37.100 --> 00:38:38.290
  • IN FACT, MOST RELIGIOUS SYSTEM TEACHES THAT.
  • 00:38:39.010 --> 00:38:41.240
  • BUT TO SAY YOU CAN RECEIVE GOOD YOU DON'T
  • 00:38:41.260 --> 00:38:44.180
  • DESERVE BECAUSE ANOTHER RECEIVED ALL THE BAD THAT
  • 00:38:44.200 --> 00:38:47.190
  • WE DESERVED, THAT TAKES THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:38:47.210 --> 00:38:52.170
  • TO TEACH RELIGION DOESN'T TAKE THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:38:52.190 --> 00:38:55.170
  • SO I'M AMUSED SOMETIMES WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAYING
  • 00:38:55.190 --> 00:38:58.130
  • THAT OH, I'M NOT INTO THIS GRACE TEACHING.
  • 00:38:58.150 --> 00:39:01.050
  • IT'S NOT A GRACE TEACHING.
  • 00:39:01.070 --> 00:39:04.110
  • IT IS THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:39:04.130 --> 00:39:06.100
  • GRACE IS JUST A REDISCOVERY OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:39:06.120 --> 00:39:08.210
  • IT'S AS IF IT'S BEEN HIDDEN FOR SOME TIME, AND
  • 00:39:08.230 --> 00:39:11.190
  • ON MY PART, I FEEL MY ROLE IS TO PICK IT UP AND
  • 00:39:11.210 --> 00:39:15.250
  • DUST OFF THE GOSPEL LIKE KING JOSIAH FOUND
  • 00:39:15.270 --> 00:39:19.050
  • THE LAW OF THE LORD.
  • 00:39:19.070 --> 00:39:21.080
  • I THINK IT WAS HIDDEN ON FOR SOME TIME.
  • 00:39:21.100 --> 00:39:23.170
  • WE ARE JUST DUSTING OFF AND LOOKING AT WHAT THE
  • 00:39:23.190 --> 00:39:25.270
  • REAL GOSPEL IS ALL ABOUT AND TELLING THE WORLD.
  • 00:39:25.290 --> 00:39:29.270
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN TITUS THAT THE GRACE OF GOD HAS
  • 00:39:29.290 --> 00:39:32.000
  • APPEARED, BECOME VISIBLE TO ALL MEN.
  • 00:39:32.020 --> 00:39:35.130
  • THAT TELLS US GRACE, THE GRACE OF GOD THAT BRINGS
  • 00:39:35.150 --> 00:39:38.110
  • SALVATION HAS APPEARED TO ALL MEN,
  • 00:39:38.130 --> 00:39:40.090
  • HAS BECOME VISIBLE.
  • 00:39:40.110 --> 00:39:41.160
  • THAT TELLS US GRACE IS NOT A DOCTRINE; GRACE IS
  • 00:39:41.180 --> 00:39:43.210
  • THE PERSON OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:39:43.230 --> 00:39:46.230
  • AND THERE ARE NEW VOICES THAT WANT TO REDEFINE
  • 00:39:46.250 --> 00:39:49.090
  • GRACE THAT'S NOT BASED ON SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:39:49.110 --> 00:39:52.090
  • SCRIPTURE DEFINES GRACE LIKE THIS, IF IT BE OF
  • 00:39:52.110 --> 00:39:54.250
  • WORKS IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS, IF IT BE OF
  • 00:39:54.270 --> 00:39:57.100
  • WORKS, IT'S NO MORE OF GRACE.
  • 00:39:57.120 --> 00:39:59.150
  • IF IT BE OF GRACE, IT'S NO MORE OF WORKS.
  • 00:39:59.170 --> 00:40:03.010
  • OTHERWISE WORKS IS NO MORE WORKS, GRACE IS NO
  • 00:40:03.030 --> 00:40:04.240
  • MORE GRACE. SO GRACE IS THE OPPOSITE OF WORKS.
  • 00:40:04.260 --> 00:40:08.200
  • NOW WE NEED WORKS IN OUR LIFE, BUT MANY TIMES WE
  • 00:40:08.220 --> 00:40:12.160
  • DON'T REALIZE THAT WE BECOME HOLY BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:40:12.180 --> 00:40:16.000
  • WHEN YOUR MIND IS FULL OF HOPE, YOUR HEART IS
  • 00:40:16.020 --> 00:40:18.260
  • FULL OF FAITH, THOSE ARE ACTUALLY
  • 00:40:18.280 --> 00:40:23.020
  • CHARACTERISTICS OF HOLINESS.
  • 00:40:23.040 --> 00:40:25.200
  • AND WHEN JESUS LOOKED AT THE SEVEN CHURCHES, AND I
  • 00:40:25.220 --> 00:40:30.000
  • KNOW THAT THIS SESSION MAY NOT BE FOR THE SEVEN
  • 00:40:30.020 --> 00:40:32.060
  • CHURCHES, BUT I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU THE FIRST
  • 00:40:32.080 --> 00:40:34.050
  • CHURCH THAT HE LOOKED AT, AND HE WAS ASSESSING THE
  • 00:40:34.070 --> 00:40:36.170
  • CHURCH LIKE A MANAGER WOULD ASSESS HIS EMPLOYEES.
  • 00:40:36.190 --> 00:40:40.170
  • IT'S NOT A MATTER OF SALVATION, IT'S A MATTER
  • 00:40:40.190 --> 00:40:42.110
  • OF MINISTRY, REWARDS OR NO REWARDS, AND IT'S A
  • 00:40:42.130 --> 00:40:45.030
  • MATTER OF WHERE HE REMOVED THE CANDLESTICK.
  • 00:40:45.050 --> 00:40:47.210
  • IT'S NOT A MATTER OF REMOVING SALVATION.
  • 00:40:47.230 --> 00:40:49.080
  • HE NEVER SAYS I'LL REMOVE YOUR SALVATION.
  • 00:40:49.100 --> 00:40:51.060
  • HE SAYS IF YOU DON'T DO THIS, YOU DON'T CHANGE
  • 00:40:51.080 --> 00:40:53.160
  • YOUR MIND ABOUT THIS, YOU DON'T REPENT, I'LL REMOVE
  • 00:40:53.180 --> 00:40:55.170
  • YOUR CANDLESTICK.
  • 00:40:55.190 --> 00:40:57.100
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION, THE
  • 00:40:57.120 --> 00:40:59.050
  • CANDLESTICK IS THE CHURCH, THE LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:40:59.070 --> 00:41:02.280
  • YOU KNOW JOHN SAW SEVEN GOLDEN LAMP STANDS, SEVEN
  • 00:41:03.000 --> 00:41:06.070
  • MENORAHS, AND THE INTERPRETATION IS THAT
  • 00:41:06.090 --> 00:41:08.220
  • THE SEVEN MENORAHS ARE THE SEVEN CHURCHES
  • 00:41:08.240 --> 00:41:11.150
  • IN ASIA MINOR AT THE TIME.
  • 00:41:11.170 --> 00:41:13.230
  • SO LET'S USE THE ANALOGY.
  • 00:41:13.250 --> 00:41:16.120
  • HE WAS LOOKING AT THE CHURCH AND SAYS IF YOU
  • 00:41:16.140 --> 00:41:17.290
  • DON'T REPENT, YOU DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND, I'LL
  • 00:41:18.010 --> 00:41:19.200
  • REMOVE YOUR CANDLESTICK. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:41:19.220 --> 00:41:21.180
  • YOUR CHURCH SHUTS DOWN.
  • 00:41:21.200 --> 00:41:23.120
  • BUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SAVED WILL GO
  • 00:41:23.140 --> 00:41:24.230
  • SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:41:24.250 --> 00:41:26.270
  • NOW, THAT IN A FORM IS A CHASTISEMENT, THE LORD IS
  • 00:41:26.290 --> 00:41:31.130
  • ASSESSING THE PASTORS, HE'S TALKING TO THE
  • 00:41:31.150 --> 00:41:33.030
  • PASTOR OF THE CHURCH, THE ANGEL OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:41:33.050 --> 00:41:35.170
  • NOW IT CAN'T BE AN ANGEL OF GOD WITH WINGS BECAUSE
  • 00:41:35.190 --> 00:41:37.240
  • YOU DON'T TELL AN ANGEL OF GOD YOU HAVE
  • 00:41:37.260 --> 00:41:40.090
  • LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE. YOU ARE FALLEN.
  • 00:41:40.110 --> 00:41:42.080
  • REMEMBER FROM WHERE YOU FELL BECAUSE YOU'LL BE A
  • 00:41:42.100 --> 00:41:44.040
  • FALLEN ANGEL? RIGHT.
  • 00:41:44.060 --> 00:41:47.080
  • SO HE'S TALKING TO THE ANGLOS IN THE GREEK.
  • 00:41:47.100 --> 00:41:48.270
  • THE PASTOR OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:41:48.290 --> 00:41:50.000
  • HE HOLDS THE PASTOR RESPONSIBLE.
  • 00:41:50.020 --> 00:41:52.080
  • NOW LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:41:52.100 --> 00:41:53.190
  • I HAVE THIS SCRIPTURE UP HERE IN REVELATION 2.
  • 00:41:53.210 --> 00:41:56.160
  • JESUS SAID TO THE FIRST CHURCH OF EPHESUS, LOOK
  • 00:41:56.180 --> 00:41:59.070
  • AT THAT, I KNOW YOUR WORKS, YOUR LABOR,
  • 00:41:59.090 --> 00:42:03.130
  • YOUR PATIENCE. NOTICE THE ORDER.
  • 00:42:03.150 --> 00:42:06.050
  • I KNOW YOUR WORKS, YOUR LABOR, YOUR PATIENCE.
  • 00:42:06.070 --> 00:42:08.290
  • NOW FOR MOST OF US, WE'LL SAY THAT'S GREAT.
  • 00:42:09.010 --> 00:42:11.150
  • THIS CHURCH HAS WORKS, THEY HAVE LABOR,
  • 00:42:11.170 --> 00:42:13.270
  • AND THEY HAVE PERSEVERANCE. RIGHT?
  • 00:42:13.290 --> 00:42:16.210
  • BUT NOTICE WHAT'S MISSING HERE.
  • 00:42:16.230 --> 00:42:19.270
  • IT'S AN INDICTMENT BECAUSE LOOK AT THE ORDER:
  • 00:42:19.290 --> 00:42:22.170
  • WORKS, ORDER, PATIENCE.
  • 00:42:22.190 --> 00:42:24.030
  • LOOK AT 1 THESSALONIANS CHAPTER ONE.
  • 00:42:24.050 --> 00:42:26.240
  • PAUL SAYS REMEMBERING WITHOUT CEASING YOUR WORK
  • 00:42:26.260 --> 00:42:29.190
  • OF FAITH, LABOR OF LOVE AND PATIENCE OF HOPE.
  • 00:42:29.210 --> 00:42:35.130
  • SO WHAT IS MISSING IS FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE.
  • 00:42:37.010 --> 00:42:40.120
  • AND NOW ABIDES FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE.
  • 00:42:40.140 --> 00:42:41.270
  • SO WHAT JOEL DOES AND MY MINISTRY IS WE EMPHASIZE
  • 00:42:41.290 --> 00:42:45.020
  • FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE.
  • 00:42:45.040 --> 00:42:48.090
  • THE PREVIOUS GENERATION, YOUR FATHER, YOUR FATHER
  • 00:42:48.110 --> 00:42:51.150
  • EMPHASIZE FAITH BECAUSE GOD WAS RESTORING FAITH
  • 00:42:51.170 --> 00:42:54.150
  • TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:42:54.170 --> 00:42:56.150
  • AND NOW WE HAVE HOPE AND WE HAVE LOVE BEING
  • 00:42:56.170 --> 00:43:00.020
  • RESTORED. NOW ISN'T THIS TRUE OF HOLINESS?
  • 00:43:00.040 --> 00:43:02.200
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN BE DOING THE RIGHT THINGS FOR THE
  • 00:43:02.220 --> 00:43:04.120
  • WRONG REASONS. ONE OF THE ONES IS NOT JUST WORK,
  • 00:43:04.140 --> 00:43:07.020
  • BUT WORK OF FAITH.
  • 00:43:07.040 --> 00:43:08.180
  • NOT JUST LABOR BUT LABOR OF LOVE.
  • 00:43:08.200 --> 00:43:11.020
  • NOT JUST PERSEVERANCE BUT PERSEVERANCE OF HOPE
  • 00:43:11.040 --> 00:43:13.290
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE A POSITIVE EXPECTATION OF
  • 00:43:14.010 --> 00:43:15.230
  • GOOD IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:43:15.250 --> 00:43:17.200
  • LAURIE CROUCH: THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:43:17.220 --> 00:43:19.220
  • - AND NOW BY FAITH HOPE AND LOVE.
  • 00:43:19.240 --> 00:43:24.090
  • BUT NOW FAITH, HOPE, LOVE ABIDE IN THESE THREE
  • 00:43:26.200 --> 00:43:31.040
  • BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.
  • 00:43:31.060 --> 00:43:34.110
  • - EVEN TODAY, WITH ALL I KNOW AND ALL THAT I CAN
  • 00:43:35.260 --> 00:43:39.140
  • WAKE UP, IF I'M SELF-OCCUPIED, BANG, I'M
  • 00:43:39.160 --> 00:43:42.150
  • IN A SLIGHT DEPRESSION FOR THAT DAY.
  • 00:43:42.170 --> 00:43:44.020
  • AND THE DEVIL DOES IT TO YOU, TO US ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:43:44.040 --> 00:43:47.090
  • HE COMES TO YOU AND SAY LOOK AT YOUR THOUGHTS,
  • 00:43:47.110 --> 00:43:48.290
  • WHY DO YOU START?
  • 00:43:49.010 --> 00:43:51.040
  • YOU THOUGHT THAT YOU ARE BETTER LOOKING THAN JOSEPH
  • 00:43:51.060 --> 00:43:53.260
  • PRINCE. AND LOOK AT THE-- [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:43:53.280 --> 00:43:56.240
  • LOOK AT WHAT YOU FELT JUST NOW.
  • 00:43:56.260 --> 00:43:59.000
  • AND IT'S ALWAYS POINTING TO YOU.
  • 00:43:59.020 --> 00:44:02.120
  • EVEN WHEN YOU DO RIGHT, YOU HAVEN'T READ YOUR
  • 00:44:02.140 --> 00:44:03.290
  • BIBLE TODAY, YOU HAVEN'T PRAYED ENOUGH.
  • 00:44:04.010 --> 00:44:06.160
  • SO EVEN WHEN YOU DO RIGHT, YOU READ YOUR
  • 00:44:06.180 --> 00:44:08.050
  • BIBLE, YOU HAVEN'T READ YOUR BIBLE ENOUGH.
  • 00:44:08.070 --> 00:44:10.000
  • IT'S NEVER ENOUGH.
  • 00:44:10.020 --> 00:44:12.210
  • YOU HAVEN'T PRAYED LONG ENOUGH.
  • 00:44:12.230 --> 00:44:14.070
  • IT'S ALWAYS LIKE WHINING, WHINING, AND NAGGING,
  • 00:44:14.090 --> 00:44:17.280
  • THE BIBLE CALLS IT.
  • 00:44:18.000 --> 00:44:20.080
  • BUT WHAT GOD HAS DONE AND WHAT THE GOSPEL OF GRACE
  • 00:44:20.100 --> 00:44:22.030
  • IS DOING IS IT DELIVERS YOU FROM OCCUPATION OF
  • 00:44:22.050 --> 00:44:24.170
  • SELF. OCCUPATION OF SELF A IS PAINFUL THING.
  • 00:44:24.190 --> 00:44:27.200
  • AND IF YOU LOOK AT YOURSELF.
  • 00:44:27.220 --> 00:44:30.110
  • LAURIE CROUCH: IT'S TIRING.
  • 00:44:30.130 --> 00:44:33.050
  • - IN A GROUP PHOTO AND YOU'RE IN THE PHOTO, WHO
  • 00:44:33.070 --> 00:44:36.090
  • DO YOU LOOK FOR FIRST?
  • 00:44:36.110 --> 00:44:38.010
  • WE'RE ALL SELF-OCCUPIED TO SOME EXTENT.
  • 00:44:38.030 --> 00:44:40.030
  • BUT WHAT GOD DOES IS THAT GOD BRINGS HIS SON,
  • 00:44:40.050 --> 00:44:44.020
  • AND GOD SAYS FROM NOW ON, I'M GONNA MEASURE
  • 00:44:44.040 --> 00:44:46.160
  • YOU BY THIS MAN.
  • 00:44:46.180 --> 00:44:48.100
  • I'M GONNA MEASURE YOU JUST LIKE ALL MEN BECAME
  • 00:44:48.120 --> 00:44:52.010
  • SINNERS, WE SAY THAT PEOPLE ARE SINNERS
  • 00:44:52.030 --> 00:44:54.260
  • BECAUSE THEY SIN, BUT ACTUALLY THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:44:54.280 --> 00:44:56.180
  • SAYS PEOPLE ARE SINNERS BECAUSE ADAM SINNED.
  • 00:44:56.200 --> 00:44:59.220
  • BY ONE MAN'S SIN, ALL ARE MADE SINNERS.
  • 00:44:59.240 --> 00:45:02.220
  • NOW YOU SAY THAT'S NOT FAIR.
  • 00:45:02.240 --> 00:45:04.140
  • I WASN'T EVEN BORN YET. BUT WAIT.
  • 00:45:04.160 --> 00:45:07.060
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT BY ONE MAN'S OBEDIENCE,
  • 00:45:07.080 --> 00:45:10.150
  • NOT OUR OBEDIENCE, WE ARE MADE RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:45:10.170 --> 00:45:14.260
  • SO GOD DESIGNED IT IN SUCH A WAY THAT WE ARE
  • 00:45:14.280 --> 00:45:17.010
  • DELIVERED NOT FROM OUR OBEDIENCE NOW, BUT IT
  • 00:45:17.030 --> 00:45:19.050
  • DOESN'T MEAN WE LIVE A DISOBEDIENT LIFESTYLE,
  • 00:45:19.070 --> 00:45:21.010
  • BUT YOU BECOME OBEDIENT BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:45:21.030 --> 00:45:24.170
  • YOU DON'T EVEN FOCUS ON IT.
  • 00:45:24.190 --> 00:45:26.010
  • BUT IT IS HIS OBEDIENCE THAT WE'RE TO FOCUS ON.
  • 00:45:26.030 --> 00:45:28.090
  • BY HIS OBEDIENCE, WE ARE MADE RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:45:28.110 --> 00:45:30.030
  • THE DEVIL WANTS TO BRING THOUGHTS BACK TO
  • 00:45:30.050 --> 00:45:32.130
  • YOUR OBEDIENCE. ARE YOU OBEYING ENOUGH?
  • 00:45:32.150 --> 00:45:34.120
  • AND WHAT JOEL DOES IS THAT HE JUST BRINGS YOU
  • 00:45:34.140 --> 00:45:38.010
  • OUT WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU, GOD'S VISION FOR YOU, AND
  • 00:45:38.030 --> 00:45:41.270
  • IT'S TRULY THE FATHER'S VISION FOR ALL OF US TO
  • 00:45:41.290 --> 00:45:43.260
  • BE OCCUPIED WITH CHRIST AND HIS BEAUTY AND WHO WE
  • 00:45:43.280 --> 00:45:47.060
  • ARE IN HIM AND NOT WHO WE ARE IN OURSELVES.
  • 00:45:47.080 --> 00:45:52.110
  • - OUR GOAL AT TBN IS TO TAKE THIS AMAZING MESSAGE
  • 00:45:52.130 --> 00:45:55.120
  • OF GRACE AND DISTRIBUTE IT TO THE WORLD, TO THE
  • 00:45:55.140 --> 00:45:58.250
  • NATIONS OF THE EARTH, AND WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN
  • 00:45:58.270 --> 00:46:01.210
  • MAKE THAT HAPPEN.
  • 00:46:01.230 --> 00:46:03.110
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:46:03.130 --> 00:46:07.250
  • - ANYTHING THAT IS NOT THE GRACE OF CHRIST IS
  • 00:46:07.270 --> 00:46:09.170
  • A DIFFERENT GOSPEL.
  • 00:46:09.190 --> 00:46:12.030
  • BUT TODAY THE DEVIL HAS SO DECEIVED THE CHURCH TO
  • 00:46:12.050 --> 00:46:18.260
  • THE POINT THAT THE OPPOSITE SEEMS TRUE.
  • 00:46:18.280 --> 00:46:22.200
  • WHEN YOU PREACH THE GRACE OF CHRIST, THEY'RE SAYING
  • 00:46:22.220 --> 00:46:24.070
  • IT'S A DIFFERENT GOSPEL.
  • 00:46:24.090 --> 00:46:26.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:46:26.140 --> 00:46:30.030
  • - WHEN WE TALK ABOUT GRACE, YOU KNOW, THERE'S
  • 00:46:30.050 --> 00:46:32.150
  • SO MANY WONDERFUL TEACHERS ON THIS TOPIC.
  • 00:46:32.170 --> 00:46:34.270
  • ONE OF THE THINGS I'M ENCOURAGING THEM WITH IS
  • 00:46:34.290 --> 00:46:37.240
  • THAT EVERYONE THINKS THAT GOD'S GRACE IS UNMERITED
  • 00:46:37.260 --> 00:46:41.210
  • FAVOR. BUT IF I WAS TO SAY TO YOU, HEY, I'M GONNA
  • 00:46:41.230 --> 00:46:45.100
  • DO A FAVOR FOR YOU, YOUR NEXT REACTION IS WHAT?
  • 00:46:45.120 --> 00:46:52.000
  • SO THE DEFINITION OF GRACE, UNMERITED FAVOR,
  • 00:46:52.020 --> 00:46:55.220
  • IS HOW YOU GET GRACE.
  • 00:46:55.240 --> 00:46:58.030
  • SO WHAT IS THE UNMERITED FAVOR THAT GOD DID FOR US?
  • 00:46:58.050 --> 00:47:03.200
  • HE SENT HIS SON, DIED FOR SIN, TOOK OUR SINS, TOOK
  • 00:47:03.220 --> 00:47:07.180
  • THE CURSE, DIED IN OUR PLACE, SO THAT ALL OF THE
  • 00:47:07.200 --> 00:47:11.000
  • ABILITY OF GOD WOULD BE GIVEN TO US, HIS ABILITY
  • 00:47:11.020 --> 00:47:14.240
  • TO LIVE MORAL, HAPPY, JOYFUL, HIS ABILITY TO
  • 00:47:14.260 --> 00:47:18.040
  • RISE UP IN FINANCE AND IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE, THAT
  • 00:47:18.060 --> 00:47:23.090
  • ABILITY IS OURS, AND IF PEOPLE COULD SEE THAT
  • 00:47:23.110 --> 00:47:25.290
  • WHEN WE TALK ABOUT GRACE, IT IS A FREE UNEARNED
  • 00:47:26.010 --> 00:47:29.170
  • GIFT TO DO EVERYTHING THAT WE NEED TO DO IN OUR
  • 00:47:29.190 --> 00:47:34.000
  • LIVES FOR HIM, AND TO LIVE WITH SUCCESS IN
  • 00:47:34.020 --> 00:47:36.280
  • EVERY AREA ISN'T ON MY OWN STRIKE BUT HIS GRACE.
  • 00:47:37.000 --> 00:47:41.090
  • EVEN WHEN PAUL SAYS I ASKED GOD THREE TIMES TO
  • 00:47:41.110 --> 00:47:43.210
  • TAKE AWAY THIS THING THAT THE ENEMY WAS DOING, AND
  • 00:47:43.230 --> 00:47:46.090
  • HE SAID MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU.
  • 00:47:46.110 --> 00:47:49.230
  • HE WASN'T SAYING JUST PUT UP WITH IT.
  • 00:47:49.250 --> 00:47:51.190
  • HE WAS SAYING THE ABILITY THAT'S BEEN GIVEN TO YOU
  • 00:47:51.210 --> 00:47:54.090
  • BECAUSE OF THE CROSS IN JESUS IS YOURS.
  • 00:47:54.110 --> 00:47:56.180
  • DEAL WITH IT YOURSELF.
  • 00:47:56.200 --> 00:47:58.030
  • AND WE KNOW HE DID AND HE WAS FREE FROM IT.
  • 00:47:58.050 --> 00:48:01.050
  • AND HE HAS SAID TO ME, MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT
  • 00:48:02.260 --> 00:48:05.000
  • FOR YOU, FOR POWER IS PERFECTED IN WEAKNESS.
  • 00:48:05.020 --> 00:48:08.240
  • - HOPE AND GRACE, I WANT IT TO DEFINE OUR
  • 00:48:09.240 --> 00:48:13.040
  • GENERATION. THAT'S--
  • 00:48:13.060 --> 00:48:15.070
  • IT'S CHANGED US, IT WILL CHANGE YOU.
  • 00:48:15.090 --> 00:48:18.120
  • WHAT CAN SOMEBODY DO, WHAT'S THE FIRST
  • 00:48:18.140 --> 00:48:21.050
  • THOUGHTS, HOW DO THEY WAKE UP TO HOPE AND GRACE
  • 00:48:21.070 --> 00:48:25.090
  • AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THEIR LIFE?
  • 00:48:25.110 --> 00:48:27.100
  • - THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAID.
  • 00:48:27.120 --> 00:48:28.210
  • YOU NEED TO WAKE UP TO HOPE AND GRACE, YOU NEED
  • 00:48:28.230 --> 00:48:31.100
  • TO CONSTANTLY LISTEN TO THE MESSAGES
  • 00:48:31.120 --> 00:48:33.000
  • OF HOPE AND GRACE.
  • 00:48:33.020 --> 00:48:35.140
  • IT NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN JUST PSYCH YOURSELF.
  • 00:48:35.160 --> 00:48:37.120
  • YOU JUST WAKE UP AND SAY I'M GONNA STOP FEARING
  • 00:48:37.140 --> 00:48:39.150
  • TODAY. YOU CAN'T JUST PSYCH YOURSELF BECAUSE
  • 00:48:39.170 --> 00:48:41.270
  • IT'S TOO POWERFUL.
  • 00:48:41.290 --> 00:48:43.160
  • THE FORCES OF DARKNESS, WHAT THEY'RE DOING IN ALL
  • 00:48:43.180 --> 00:48:46.010
  • THAT, IT'S TOO POWERFUL FOR YOUR WILL POWER.
  • 00:48:46.030 --> 00:48:47.290
  • YOU NEED GOD'S POWER.
  • 00:48:48.010 --> 00:48:50.110
  • YOU NEED THE HOLY GHOST POWER.
  • 00:48:50.130 --> 00:48:51.140
  • SO HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:48:51.160 --> 00:48:52.220
  • WELL, FIRST AND FOREMOST, WHILE YOU CANNOT PSYCH
  • 00:48:52.240 --> 00:48:55.050
  • YOURSELF AWAY, YOU CAN LISTEN YOUR WAY OUT OF FEAR.
  • 00:48:55.070 --> 00:48:59.160
  • YOU CAN LISTEN YOUR WAY OUT OF WORRY, OUT OF
  • 00:48:59.180 --> 00:49:01.280
  • DEPRESSION, AND WE HAVE SO MANY TESTIMONIES, BOTH
  • 00:49:02.000 --> 00:49:04.100
  • JOEL AND I OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE WATCHED OUR PROGRAMS
  • 00:49:04.120 --> 00:49:07.050
  • AND KEEP ON LISTENING OR READING THE BOOKS AND
  • 00:49:07.070 --> 00:49:09.240
  • ALL THAT AND THEIR LIVES EFFORTLESSLY,
  • 00:49:09.260 --> 00:49:11.200
  • EFFORTLESSLY MIND YOU BECAUSE IT IS YOUR
  • 00:49:11.220 --> 00:49:14.040
  • EFFORT THAT GOT YOU THE DELIVERANCE, IT WILL BE
  • 00:49:14.060 --> 00:49:16.050
  • YOUR EFFORT TO MAINTAIN IT.
  • 00:49:16.070 --> 00:49:17.240
  • BUT MANY OF THEM JUST READING YOUR BOOKS AND
  • 00:49:17.260 --> 00:49:19.170
  • WATCHING THE PROGRAMS AND ALL THAT, THEY ARE
  • 00:49:19.190 --> 00:49:21.120
  • DELIVERED FROM ADDICTIONS, FROM
  • 00:49:21.140 --> 00:49:24.040
  • DEPRESSION, AMAZING TESTIMONIES.
  • 00:49:24.060 --> 00:49:25.280
  • AND ALL GLORY GOES TO ONE. OUR LORD.
  • 00:49:26.000 --> 00:49:29.130
  • SO A PRACTICAL THING THAT I THINK THE VIEWERS CAN
  • 00:49:29.150 --> 00:49:32.260
  • START DOING IS START HEARING AND HEARING AND
  • 00:49:32.280 --> 00:49:35.260
  • HEARING THE WORD.
  • 00:49:35.280 --> 00:49:37.200
  • ONE THING I WANT TO ENCOURAGE THEM WITH ONE
  • 00:49:37.220 --> 00:49:40.010
  • VERSE, SOMETHING PRACTICAL FOR THEM
  • 00:49:40.030 --> 00:49:41.240
  • TO TAKE HOME WITH IS 1 JOHN 4:17.
  • 00:49:41.260 --> 00:49:44.180
  • IT SAYS THIS IS HOW WE HAVE BOLDNESS
  • 00:49:44.200 --> 00:49:46.240
  • IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:49:46.260 --> 00:49:48.190
  • NOW THE DAY OF JUDGMENT CAN ALSO BE THE DAY WHERE
  • 00:49:48.210 --> 00:49:50.170
  • YOU ARE BEING JUDGED, BEING ACCUSED BY EVEN
  • 00:49:50.190 --> 00:49:52.150
  • YOUR ENEMIES OR PEOPLE, WHATEVER, NOT JUST GOD.
  • 00:49:52.170 --> 00:49:55.080
  • THE DAY OF JUDGMENT WILL-- WE WILL NEVER
  • 00:49:55.100 --> 00:49:57.030
  • BE JUDGED BY GOD. ONCE YOU ACCEPT JESUS,
  • 00:49:57.050 --> 00:49:59.210
  • THE GREAT WHITE THRONE IS NOT FOR BELIEVERS.
  • 00:49:59.230 --> 00:50:02.170
  • SO WHEN YOU ARE BEING ACCUSED ON THAT DAY, LOOK
  • 00:50:02.190 --> 00:50:05.130
  • AT YOUR THOUGHTS, LOOK AT YOUR FEELINGS,
  • 00:50:05.150 --> 00:50:07.040
  • LOOK WHAT YOU JUST DID.
  • 00:50:07.060 --> 00:50:08.270
  • YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING RIGHT BUT IT NOT ENOUGH.
  • 00:50:08.290 --> 00:50:11.100
  • LOOK, YOU'VE DONE ENOUGH.
  • 00:50:11.120 --> 00:50:12.210
  • SO WHEN YOU ARE BEING ACCUSED, THAT
  • 00:50:12.230 --> 00:50:13.270
  • VERSE WILL RESCUE YOU.
  • 00:50:13.290 --> 00:50:15.280
  • IT SAYS THIS IS HOW WE HAVE BOLDNESS IN THE DAY
  • 00:50:16.000 --> 00:50:18.020
  • OF JUDGMENT BECAUSE AS HE IS, PRESENT TENSE AT THE
  • 00:50:18.040 --> 00:50:21.240
  • FATHER'S RIGHT HAND, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:50:21.260 --> 00:50:25.060
  • IT PUTS THE FOCUS BACK ON HIM.
  • 00:50:25.080 --> 00:50:27.140
  • SO AS HE IS RIGHT NOW AT THE FATHER'S RIGHT HAND.
  • 00:50:27.160 --> 00:50:30.040
  • HOW IS HE AT THE FATHER'S RIGHT HAND?
  • 00:50:30.060 --> 00:50:32.100
  • IS HE FREE FROM FEAR? DEPRESSION?
  • 00:50:32.120 --> 00:50:34.220
  • LET'S SAY I'M SUFFERING WITH DEPRESSION, WHAT I
  • 00:50:34.240 --> 00:50:36.060
  • SAY IS LORD JESUS, AS YOU ARE FREE RIGHT NOW FROM
  • 00:50:36.080 --> 00:50:39.020
  • ALL FEARS AND DEPRESSION, SO AM I IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:50:39.040 --> 00:50:41.190
  • AND THAT'S ALL I CAN DO BUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:50:41.210 --> 00:50:44.220
  • TRANSFORMS ME BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS AS WE BEHOLD
  • 00:50:44.240 --> 00:50:48.140
  • THE GLORY OF THE LORD, WE ARE BEING TRANSFORMED
  • 00:50:48.160 --> 00:50:50.210
  • INTO THE SAME IMAGE FROM GLORY TO GLORY.
  • 00:50:50.230 --> 00:50:54.010
  • WHO DOES IT? BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD.
  • 00:50:54.030 --> 00:50:57.150
  • FROM HIS FULLNESS WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED
  • 00:50:57.170 --> 00:51:00.250
  • GRACE UPON GRACE.
  • 00:51:00.270 --> 00:51:03.080
  • NOW, I HAVE A TESTIMONY OF A LADY WHO
  • 00:51:03.290 --> 00:51:05.200
  • HEARD ME PREACH ALONG THESE LINES, AND SHE HAD A TUMOR
  • 00:51:05.220 --> 00:51:09.120
  • IN HER BODY, AND SHE WAS GOING FOR ANOTHER
  • 00:51:09.140 --> 00:51:11.280
  • TEST THE NEXT DAY.
  • 00:51:12.000 --> 00:51:13.270
  • SO THEY HAD ANOTHER TEST DONE IN THE EVENING.
  • 00:51:13.290 --> 00:51:16.000
  • THEY CALLED HER BACK AND SHE WROTE ME THE REPORT
  • 00:51:16.020 --> 00:51:19.000
  • AND SHE WROTE DOWN AS JESUS IS, SO AM I IN THIS
  • 00:51:19.020 --> 00:51:22.100
  • WORLD. AND SHE HAD--
  • 00:51:22.120 --> 00:51:23.280
  • THEY FOUND A LUMP IN HER BREAST.
  • 00:51:24.000 --> 00:51:26.040
  • AND SHE SAID LORD JESUS, DO YOU HAVE LUMPS IN YOUR
  • 00:51:26.060 --> 00:51:30.120
  • BREAST? AS YOU ARE, SO AM I IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:51:30.140 --> 00:51:34.230
  • SHE WENT BACK TO THE TEST, THEY COULDN'T FIND
  • 00:51:34.250 --> 00:51:37.180
  • IT. NOW WHO DID IT? THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:51:37.200 --> 00:51:40.100
  • OUR EFFORT CAN'T REMOVE THAT.
  • 00:51:40.120 --> 00:51:42.290
  • NOW IT MIGHT SOUND SIMPLISTIC, BUT I JUST
  • 00:51:43.010 --> 00:51:45.270
  • READ THE TESTIMONY OF A LADY IN AMERICA WHO WROTE
  • 00:51:45.290 --> 00:51:49.030
  • TO ME SHE HAD CANCER, THROAT CANCER.
  • 00:51:49.050 --> 00:51:54.050
  • AND THEN SHE GOT HEALED SOMETIME BACK, BUT THEN
  • 00:51:54.070 --> 00:51:58.000
  • THE MASS CAME BACK AGAIN.
  • 00:51:58.020 --> 00:52:00.120
  • BUT THEN SHE GOT HOLD OF THIS TEACHING AND HEARD
  • 00:52:00.140 --> 00:52:01.290
  • THIS TESTIMONY I SHARED ABOUT THIS LADY, AND SHE
  • 00:52:02.010 --> 00:52:04.170
  • SAYS LORD JESUS, AS YOU ARE FREE FROM CANCER,
  • 00:52:04.190 --> 00:52:07.120
  • AND SHE HAD A MASS IN HER THROAT, SO AM I.
  • 00:52:07.140 --> 00:52:12.110
  • AND SHE WAS SCHEDULED FOR SURGERY BUT BEFORE THE
  • 00:52:12.130 --> 00:52:15.050
  • SURGERY, THEY CHECKED HER ONE LAST TIME, AND THEY
  • 00:52:15.070 --> 00:52:17.220
  • SAID WE CAN'T FIND IT.
  • 00:52:17.240 --> 00:52:20.060
  • SO THAT'S THE REASON WHY TODAY IS OUR HIGH
  • 00:52:20.080 --> 00:52:23.230
  • PRIEST BECAUSE GOD IS JUDGING AND ASSESSING
  • 00:52:23.250 --> 00:52:27.150
  • YOU, NOT BASED ON YOUR THOUGHTS OR YOUR ACTION.
  • 00:52:27.170 --> 00:52:30.160
  • GOD IS JUDGING YOU TODAY ASSESSING YOU BASED ON
  • 00:52:30.180 --> 00:52:33.080
  • HIS SON. IS HE RIGHTEOUS? SO ARE YOU.
  • 00:52:33.100 --> 00:52:36.180
  • - WHAT YOU SEEM TO BE SAYING IS THAT IF WE TOOK
  • 00:52:36.200 --> 00:52:39.290
  • EVEN THAT ONE SCRIPTURE AND DEVOTED THAT TO
  • 00:52:40.010 --> 00:52:42.240
  • MEMORY THROUGHOUT THE DAY, AS YOU ARE,
  • 00:52:42.260 --> 00:52:45.110
  • SO AM I IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:52:45.130 --> 00:52:47.150
  • - WHATEVER YOU ARE IN BONDAGE TO, WHETHER YOU
  • 00:52:47.170 --> 00:52:49.280
  • ARE IN BONDAGE TO DRUG ADDICTION, WHATEVER IT
  • 00:52:50.000 --> 00:52:53.000
  • IS, YOU JUST SAY LORD JESUS, AS YOU ARE FREE
  • 00:52:53.020 --> 00:52:54.280
  • RIGHT NOW AT THE FATHER'S RIGHT HAND, YOU ARE FREE
  • 00:52:55.000 --> 00:52:57.190
  • FROM ALL ADDICTIONS, SO AM I IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:52:57.210 --> 00:53:01.140
  • AND THIS IS ALL YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:53:01.160 --> 00:53:02.270
  • BUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD WILL DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:53:02.290 --> 00:53:04.160
  • - THAT ENACTS HIS POWER INSTEAD OF USING
  • 00:53:04.180 --> 00:53:06.060
  • YOUR SELF-WILL.
  • 00:53:06.080 --> 00:53:07.220
  • YOU CAN'T SELF-WILL OR PSYCH YOURSELF.
  • 00:53:07.240 --> 00:53:10.200
  • - RIGHT, AND I LOVE TO SAY THIS, LORD JESUS AS
  • 00:53:10.220 --> 00:53:12.170
  • YOU ARE YOUNG. HE DOESN'T GROW OLD IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:53:12.190 --> 00:53:14.280
  • AS YOU ARE YOUNG, HEALTHY AND STRONG,
  • 00:53:15.000 --> 00:53:16.290
  • SO AM I IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:53:17.010 --> 00:53:19.050
  • THE NATION OF ISRAEL, WHEN THEY HAD THE HIGH
  • 00:53:19.070 --> 00:53:21.120
  • PRIEST IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, GOD MEASURED
  • 00:53:21.140 --> 00:53:23.060
  • THE NATION BY THEIR HIGH PRIEST.
  • 00:53:23.080 --> 00:53:25.140
  • IF THE NATION WAS GOOD BUT THEIR HIGH PRIEST WAS
  • 00:53:25.160 --> 00:53:27.200
  • BAD, THE ENTIRE NATION WAS REJECTED.
  • 00:53:27.220 --> 00:53:30.200
  • THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD GO TO THE HOLY OF HOLIES AND
  • 00:53:30.220 --> 00:53:32.150
  • DIE, AND GOD REJECTS THE ENTIRE NATION.
  • 00:53:32.170 --> 00:53:35.170
  • BUT IF THEY ARE BAD, WHICH IS THE CASE MOST OF
  • 00:53:35.190 --> 00:53:38.180
  • THE TIME, BUT THE HIGH PRIEST IS GOOD, AND HE
  • 00:53:38.200 --> 00:53:41.260
  • GOES INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES AND HE COMES OUT
  • 00:53:41.280 --> 00:53:43.270
  • ALIVE, THEY CAN LOOK FORWARD TO A YEAR OF
  • 00:53:43.290 --> 00:53:47.040
  • BUMPER CROPS, VICTORY OVER THEIR ENEMIES,
  • 00:53:47.060 --> 00:53:49.170
  • A BLESSED YEAR.
  • 00:53:49.190 --> 00:53:51.090
  • BUT THEY HAD TO DO IT EVERY YEAR BECAUSE THE
  • 00:53:51.110 --> 00:53:52.220
  • HIGH PRIEST IS MORTAL.
  • 00:53:52.240 --> 00:53:55.100
  • THE UNFORTUNATE THING IS THAT GOLDBERG IS GROWING
  • 00:53:55.120 --> 00:53:59.200
  • OLD AND HE'S A GOOD HIGH PRIEST, BUT HIS SON, ALL
  • 00:53:59.220 --> 00:54:03.230
  • RIGHT, AIN'T EXACTLY, HE'S A PARTY ANIMAL, AND
  • 00:54:03.250 --> 00:54:07.260
  • HE'S GONNA SUCCEED HIS FATHER, SO THEY NEVER HAD
  • 00:54:07.280 --> 00:54:10.120
  • THE SECURITY. BUT OUR HIGH PRIEST TODAY
  • 00:54:10.140 --> 00:54:13.000
  • LIVES AT POWER AND ENDLESS LIFE.
  • 00:54:13.020 --> 00:54:16.040
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:54:16.060 --> 00:54:20.160
  • THE CENTURION AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS, WHEN
  • 00:54:20.180 --> 00:54:22.170
  • HE SAW THE WAY JESUS DIED, HE SAID CERTAINLY
  • 00:54:22.190 --> 00:54:24.060
  • THIS IS THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:54:24.080 --> 00:54:27.240
  • AND YET HE DIED A HORRIBLE DEATH ON THE
  • 00:54:27.260 --> 00:54:30.250
  • CROSS. WHY? BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:54:30.270 --> 00:54:36.140
  • HE DID NO SIN, KNEW NO SIN, BUT HE RECEIVED YOUR
  • 00:54:36.160 --> 00:54:39.090
  • SIN. NOW THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO TO HONOR WHAT HE
  • 00:54:39.110 --> 00:54:42.220
  • DID IS TO RECEIVE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND YOU
  • 00:54:42.240 --> 00:54:46.130
  • ARE RIGHTEOUS APART FROM YOUR DEEDS. THE WAY
  • 00:54:46.150 --> 00:54:49.160
  • HE BECAME A SINNER APART FROM HIS DEEDS. AMEN?

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:54:53.030 --> 00:54:57.170
  • I MENTIONED THE OTHER DAY THAT I WAS HERE IN
  • 00:54:57.190 --> 00:54:59.200
  • L.A. JUST NOT TOO LONG AGO RECOVERING FROM A JET LAG.
  • 00:54:59.220 --> 00:55:02.210
  • I WAS IN THE STREET IN A WELL-KNOWN STREET WHERE
  • 00:55:02.230 --> 00:55:05.070
  • BUSKERS WERE, AND THEY WERE SINGING.
  • 00:55:05.090 --> 00:55:07.000
  • THIS GUY CAME WITH A BIG HOOD TALKING ABOUT TURN
  • 00:55:07.020 --> 00:55:09.150
  • OR BURN, THE SIGNS OF THE END, REPENT AND
  • 00:55:09.170 --> 00:55:12.080
  • THAT KIND OF THING.
  • 00:55:12.100 --> 00:55:13.230
  • AND THE AMAZING THING, HE WAS QUOTING SCRIPTURE
  • 00:55:13.250 --> 00:55:15.240
  • WORD FOR WORD.
  • 00:55:15.260 --> 00:55:17.190
  • BUT IT'S ALL THE JUDGMENT SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:55:17.210 --> 00:55:20.180
  • AND I DIDN'T HEAR THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:55:20.200 --> 00:55:23.140
  • SO AM I DENYING THE FACT THAT HE WAS QUOTING
  • 00:55:23.160 --> 00:55:26.040
  • SCRIPTURE? NO, I'M NOT.
  • 00:55:26.060 --> 00:55:27.140
  • EVEN "AN EYE FOR AN EYE" IS SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:55:27.160 --> 00:55:29.110
  • IT IS GOD BREATHED.
  • 00:55:29.130 --> 00:55:30.230
  • BUT IT'S NOT THE SCRIPTURE FOR THIS TIME.
  • 00:55:30.250 --> 00:55:33.250
  • WE ARE UNDER A NEW COVENANT AND THE WORLD
  • 00:55:33.270 --> 00:55:35.190
  • NEEDS TO HEAR THE GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS.

  • REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU THINK YOU HAVE SINNED
