  • - [Matt] Oh my goodness.
  • 00:01:05.955 --> 00:01:07.157
  • - I'd never met him,I'd never heard of him.
  • 00:01:07.157 --> 00:01:08.691
  • - That had to be a sweetnight you and TD Jakes.
  • 00:01:08.691 --> 00:01:11.060
  • - He was a nicest guy.
  • 00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:12.295
  • I met him in thelobby of the hotel.
  • 00:01:12.295 --> 00:01:14.330
  • They had a hotel theyput their guest in
  • 00:01:14.330 --> 00:01:16.266
  • and I met him in the lobbyand he had on alligator shoes,
  • 00:01:16.266 --> 00:01:19.102
  • I instantly knew thathe was a preacher.
  • 00:01:19.102 --> 00:01:21.538
  • And he looked likea preacher, and boy.
  • 00:01:21.538 --> 00:01:24.707
  • - [Matt] Did he preach?
  • 00:01:24.707 --> 00:01:26.209
  • - We've never had such apraise the Lord that night.
  • 00:01:26.209 --> 00:01:28.745
  • - I think history hasunfolded and he is a preacher,
  • 00:01:28.745 --> 00:01:31.414
  • I'm pretty sure.
  • 00:01:31.414 --> 00:01:32.348
  • So Jentezen, today'sMonday the 27th.
  • 00:01:33.483 --> 00:01:37.887
  • - We came back with ourpastor and this is nice.
  • 00:01:39.122 --> 00:01:41.291
  • - We are, what aboutthe day 600 of lockdown,
  • 00:01:41.291 --> 00:01:46.296
  • it feels like it, butwe've been doing this now
  • 00:01:47.697 --> 00:01:50.667
  • for about six weeks andwe have decided tonight
  • 00:01:50.667 --> 00:01:55.672
  • we're going to just kindachat and enjoy this time.
  • 00:01:55.905 --> 00:02:00.109
  • Is that okay with you?- [Jentezen] It's perfect.
  • 00:02:00.109 --> 00:02:01.611
  • - You're gonna kinda playyour saxophone a little bit
  • 00:02:01.611 --> 00:02:04.914
  • but at some point,
  • 00:02:04.914 --> 00:02:08.685
  • it feels we weretalking back in the back
  • 00:02:08.685 --> 00:02:11.421
  • that in a season like this,there's this heightened sense
  • 00:02:11.421 --> 00:02:16.426
  • that we're supposedto all perform
  • 00:02:17.527 --> 00:02:19.295
  • or that we're supposedto say something.
  • 00:02:19.295 --> 00:02:21.764
  • Well guess what?
  • 00:02:21.764 --> 00:02:23.066
  • We're experiencing thispandemic COVID-19 thing
  • 00:02:23.066 --> 00:02:26.669
  • along with you andwe're going to,
  • 00:02:26.669 --> 00:02:29.906
  • let's change the narrativetonight a little bit.
  • 00:02:29.906 --> 00:02:31.241
  • We're all in the kind of thelockdown thing, some states
  • 00:02:31.341 --> 00:02:36.246
  • are starting to do a littlebit of opening up now
  • 00:02:37.614 --> 00:02:39.249
  • and people are kinda eitherfor that or against that,
  • 00:02:39.249 --> 00:02:43.453
  • but just kinda,let's start with,
  • 00:02:44.621 --> 00:02:49.259
  • where do you wanna start?
  • 00:02:49.259 --> 00:02:51.027
  • I mean, at some point, whatdo you wanna talk about?
  • 00:02:51.027 --> 00:02:54.030
  • - Well, I think you put yourfinger on it is we're all in,
  • 00:02:54.030 --> 00:02:57.967
  • we're all goingthrough the same thing,
  • 00:02:57.967 --> 00:02:59.369
  • we all have the same questions,we all are wondering,
  • 00:02:59.369 --> 00:03:02.572
  • what is normalgonna be like again?
  • 00:03:02.572 --> 00:03:04.874
  • or is it gonna everbe the same again?
  • 00:03:04.874 --> 00:03:07.644
  • I personally havefailed days of,
  • 00:03:08.845 --> 00:03:13.182
  • should I say thispublicly of depression?
  • 00:03:13.182 --> 00:03:16.185
  • - Mm.
  • 00:03:16.185 --> 00:03:17.420
  • - Days of a littlebit of anxiety,
  • 00:03:17.420 --> 00:03:19.689
  • worry a little bit
  • 00:03:21.958 --> 00:03:23.159
  • and then other days, justbeing with your family
  • 00:03:24.560 --> 00:03:27.430
  • and realizing all thethings and relationships,
  • 00:03:27.430 --> 00:03:32.335
  • the challenges in relationships,
  • 00:03:32.335 --> 00:03:34.537
  • there's a lot thatpeople are dealing with.
  • 00:03:34.537 --> 00:03:38.341
  • One thing that happens to me,
  • 00:03:38.341 --> 00:03:40.143
  • and I don't know, Imay be unique in this,
  • 00:03:40.143 --> 00:03:42.345
  • but since we're justbeing open and honest.
  • 00:03:42.345 --> 00:03:45.315
  • Every time I usually takeoff a month in three weeks
  • 00:03:45.315 --> 00:03:50.320
  • for a little sabbatical everyyear and every time I do that,
  • 00:03:51.788 --> 00:03:54.590
  • toward the end of it, Ifeel tremendous anxiety
  • 00:03:56.225 --> 00:03:59.629
  • when I realize I'm going back.
  • 00:03:59.629 --> 00:04:01.464
  • I realize because I'm so outof the flow of getting sermons
  • 00:04:02.899 --> 00:04:07.470
  • and study and habitsthat I normally do.
  • 00:04:08.671 --> 00:04:13.142
  • That my routine hasbeen so interrupted,
  • 00:04:13.142 --> 00:04:17.146
  • that it causes atremendous pressure
  • 00:04:17.146 --> 00:04:19.482
  • to build in me aboutthat comeback Sunday.
  • 00:04:19.482 --> 00:04:23.286
  • I feel like I've got tohave some great message,
  • 00:04:23.286 --> 00:04:27.190
  • we've got to havethe greatest service,
  • 00:04:27.190 --> 00:04:30.226
  • and I feel a little bit of thatnow for some reason building
  • 00:04:30.226 --> 00:04:34.564
  • and I think probably businesspeople are feeling that,
  • 00:04:35.932 --> 00:04:40.636
  • people who are watching thisprogram, and I think it's okay,
  • 00:04:42.038 --> 00:04:46.676
  • it's okay to admit thatChristianity does not mean
  • 00:04:48.111 --> 00:04:52.382
  • that you don't have feelingsof anxiety and fear and worry.
  • 00:04:53.816 --> 00:04:57.353
  • I'm afraid ofsuper-spiritual Christians,
  • 00:04:57.353 --> 00:05:01.924
  • who all they do is,
  • 00:05:01.924 --> 00:05:03.760
  • and I believe theword, I quote the word,
  • 00:05:03.760 --> 00:05:07.163
  • but sometimes I need a minuteto feel what I'm feeling.
  • 00:05:07.163 --> 00:05:11.734
  • Sometimes you gotta get it out
  • 00:05:12.835 --> 00:05:14.370
  • before you get over it.
  • 00:05:14.370 --> 00:05:15.938
  • And I think sometimes we'rereal good in Christianity
  • 00:05:15.938 --> 00:05:19.442
  • and Christianssometimes pretending
  • 00:05:19.442 --> 00:05:22.712
  • that things don't bother us,that things don't concern us
  • 00:05:22.712 --> 00:05:26.749
  • 'cause we're suchgiants of faith.
  • 00:05:26.749 --> 00:05:29.352
  • But I'm telling you, youjust live long enough.
  • 00:05:29.352 --> 00:05:32.455
  • You just live long enough,
  • 00:05:32.455 --> 00:05:33.956
  • there'll come things into yourlife, storms into your life,
  • 00:05:33.956 --> 00:05:38.094
  • that will shake you to the core.
  • 00:05:38.094 --> 00:05:41.030
  • And in those momentsyou find out,
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:43.466
  • I don't alwayshave to be strong.
  • 00:05:43.466 --> 00:05:45.501
  • I don't always haveto have the answer.
  • 00:05:46.702 --> 00:05:49.105
  • I don't always have to bethe answer to everybody
  • 00:05:49.105 --> 00:05:54.110
  • who's hurting out there.
  • 00:05:55.378 --> 00:05:57.046
  • But sometimes theyjust need to know
  • 00:05:57.046 --> 00:05:58.748
  • that I'm feeling it too,that I'm afraidsome too.
  • 00:05:58.748 --> 00:06:03.085
  • - What comes to mind whenyou talk like that, Jentezen,
  • 00:06:03.085 --> 00:06:07.523
  • is the fact thatJesus declares himself
  • 00:06:07.523 --> 00:06:09.859
  • that he will be yourstrength and your weakness.
  • 00:06:09.859 --> 00:06:13.162
  • So at some point,
  • 00:06:13.162 --> 00:06:13.596
  • we are nothing apart from him.
  • 00:06:13.863 --> 00:06:15.965
  • And so the idea thatwe allow ourselves
  • 00:06:15.965 --> 00:06:19.602
  • to articulate concerns andfears and this and that.
  • 00:06:19.602 --> 00:06:24.574
  • But all that God's doingis asking a question,
  • 00:06:26.108 --> 00:06:29.545
  • it feels like life isjust a big question,
  • 00:06:29.545 --> 00:06:31.481
  • "Who do you say that I am now?"
  • 00:06:31.481 --> 00:06:34.517
  • So I think COVID-19 is a bigquestion to the body of Christ,
  • 00:06:34.517 --> 00:06:38.287
  • "Who do you say that I am?"
  • 00:06:38.287 --> 00:06:40.423
  • Three months ago,
  • 00:06:40.423 --> 00:06:42.158
  • wasn't the stock marketalmost 30.000 months ago?
  • 00:06:42.158 --> 00:06:46.329
  • Our economy was as bigas it has ever been ever.
  • 00:06:46.329 --> 00:06:49.665
  • And then all of a sudden theworld's brought to its knees
  • 00:06:49.665 --> 00:06:52.168
  • by an invisible pandemic virus
  • 00:06:52.168 --> 00:06:56.372
  • that comes out of someplacewe'd never heard of in China
  • 00:06:56.372 --> 00:06:59.075
  • and life iscompletely different.
  • 00:06:59.075 --> 00:07:02.278
  • And he's asking you thesame question again,
  • 00:07:02.278 --> 00:07:04.313
  • "Who do you say that I am?"
  • 00:07:04.313 --> 00:07:05.681
  • - I think he is too andyou just said something
  • 00:07:05.681 --> 00:07:08.651
  • that I think is so powerful.
  • 00:07:08.651 --> 00:07:10.720
  • We all have ourplates full of life.
  • 00:07:13.289 --> 00:07:18.294
  • It's thing all the time.
  • 00:07:19.028 --> 00:07:21.297
  • And then what God is this time
  • 00:07:21.297 --> 00:07:24.200
  • was not the problems thatwe're dealing with that we see.
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:28.404
  • But none of us sawthis one coming.
  • 00:07:28.404 --> 00:07:30.540
  • - [Matt] Nobody, yeah.
  • 00:07:30.540 --> 00:07:31.774
  • - It's kinda likeDavid in II Samuel,
  • 00:07:31.774 --> 00:07:34.810
  • I think it's ISamuel 20 actually,
  • 00:07:35.912 --> 00:07:38.147
  • when his house was burneddown by the Amalekites,
  • 00:07:38.147 --> 00:07:40.850
  • his family was kidnappedand his wealth was stolen,
  • 00:07:40.850 --> 00:07:45.388
  • he was literally ona winning streak.
  • 00:07:45.388 --> 00:07:48.157
  • He had 600 mighty men,
  • 00:07:48.157 --> 00:07:50.226
  • and they were winning,winning, winning
  • 00:07:50.226 --> 00:07:52.028
  • to 43 months on a campaign.
  • 00:07:52.028 --> 00:07:54.363
  • Every city they attacked,they took all the treasure,
  • 00:07:54.363 --> 00:07:57.633
  • all the winning, winning,winning, winning,
  • 00:07:57.633 --> 00:07:59.635
  • he never thought thatwhen he got home,
  • 00:07:59.635 --> 00:08:04.273
  • he didn't see it coming.
  • 00:08:04.273 --> 00:08:05.875
  • And his houses burned, hischildren are kidnapped,
  • 00:08:07.310 --> 00:08:10.546
  • his wife is kidnapped, hiswealth is gone all in one day.
  • 00:08:10.546 --> 00:08:15.551
  • And then to make thingsworse, everybody.
  • 00:08:17.186 --> 00:08:19.822
  • - It's in the same thing.
  • 00:08:20.690 --> 00:08:22.158
  • All of his mighty men werein the same situation.
  • 00:08:22.158 --> 00:08:23.759
  • The Bible says theyall began to weep.
  • 00:08:23.759 --> 00:08:26.262
  • You're talking aboutguys that could kill,
  • 00:08:26.262 --> 00:08:27.830
  • the Bible said in 2 Samuel23, some of those mighty men
  • 00:08:27.830 --> 00:08:31.000
  • could kill six hundredmen single-handed.
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:33.803
  • One guy killed athousand people.
  • 00:08:33.803 --> 00:08:36.138
  • And yet they're weeping.
  • 00:08:38.040 --> 00:08:40.610
  • Which tells me it's okay,it's okay to feel down.
  • 00:08:40.610 --> 00:08:44.947
  • It's okay to feel, as longas you don't stay there.
  • 00:08:44.947 --> 00:08:48.484
  • As long as you don'tgive into that.
  • 00:08:48.484 --> 00:08:51.020
  • But I do think we haveto take a moment and
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:54.090
  • realize that when thathappens, he goes and he says,
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:57.827
  • and I love this verse, so hisown guys got so discouraged
  • 00:08:57.827 --> 00:09:02.798
  • that they turned on him.
  • 00:09:03.566 --> 00:09:04.934
  • The Bible said theywere so grieved
  • 00:09:04.934 --> 00:09:06.502
  • that they had losttheir families and homes
  • 00:09:06.502 --> 00:09:08.337
  • that the mighty mentalked of stoning him.
  • 00:09:08.337 --> 00:09:11.741
  • And ain't that what we dowhen we get into crisis?
  • 00:09:11.741 --> 00:09:13.809
  • We look for somebody to blame.
  • 00:09:13.809 --> 00:09:16.345
  • We want to blame the president,
  • 00:09:16.345 --> 00:09:17.813
  • we want to blame the Democrats,
  • 00:09:17.813 --> 00:09:19.315
  • we want to blamethe Republicans,
  • 00:09:19.315 --> 00:09:20.783
  • we want to blame the doctorsmissing the forecast,
  • 00:09:20.783 --> 00:09:23.419
  • whatever, stop it.
  • 00:09:23.419 --> 00:09:25.154
  • Stop it.
  • 00:09:25.154 --> 00:09:26.188
  • I wanna ask this questionwhen I read that story,
  • 00:09:27.623 --> 00:09:29.825
  • what good wouldstoning David do?
  • 00:09:29.825 --> 00:09:32.361
  • - [Couple] Right.
  • 00:09:32.361 --> 00:09:33.763
  • - Is that gonnasolve your problem?
  • 00:09:33.763 --> 00:09:35.865
  • And be careful, theBible said that the men,
  • 00:09:35.865 --> 00:09:37.633
  • his mighty men were grieved.
  • 00:09:37.633 --> 00:09:40.169
  • The word grieve means bitter.
  • 00:09:40.169 --> 00:09:42.605
  • When you allow betterpeople into your life,
  • 00:09:42.605 --> 00:09:45.141
  • it's a matter of time beforeyou become their target.
  • 00:09:45.141 --> 00:09:47.843
  • Anytime you allow a bunchof bitter people (laughs)
  • 00:09:49.311 --> 00:09:51.313
  • into your life, they may behitting somebody else right now,
  • 00:09:51.313 --> 00:09:55.651
  • but it's a matter oftime before bitter spirit
  • 00:09:55.651 --> 00:09:58.387
  • will turn on you.
  • 00:09:58.387 --> 00:09:59.655
  • Because it's alwaysgotta blame somebody.
  • 00:09:59.655 --> 00:10:02.825
  • But here's thewhole turning point.
  • 00:10:02.825 --> 00:10:05.695
  • The Bible said they wept, untilthey could not weep anymore.
  • 00:10:05.695 --> 00:10:09.865
  • And I love that word, until.
  • 00:10:09.865 --> 00:10:12.001
  • They wept until, you haveto have an until moment.
  • 00:10:12.001 --> 00:10:15.271
  • I've cried all I'mgonna cry over this,
  • 00:10:16.472 --> 00:10:18.574
  • I've worried all I'mgonna worry over this.
  • 00:10:18.574 --> 00:10:20.676
  • I've sent the last texttrying to get it worked out.
  • 00:10:20.676 --> 00:10:23.279
  • I've reached my until moment.
  • 00:10:23.279 --> 00:10:27.049
  • And the Bible said, and David
  • 00:10:27.049 --> 00:10:29.952
  • encouraged
  • 00:10:29.952 --> 00:10:31.620
  • himself in the Lord.
  • 00:10:31.620 --> 00:10:33.823
  • (giggles)
  • 00:10:33.823 --> 00:10:35.424
  • You know why heencouraged himself?
  • 00:10:35.424 --> 00:10:37.426
  • Cause he didn'thave anybody else.
  • 00:10:37.426 --> 00:10:38.661
  • - [Male] Everyoneelse was mad at him.
  • 00:10:38.661 --> 00:10:41.030
  • - But he encouraged himselfin the Lord his God.
  • 00:10:41.030 --> 00:10:44.567
  • Isn't that strong?
  • 00:10:45.501 --> 00:10:46.802
  • - [Woman] Yeah, it's sweet.
  • 00:10:46.802 --> 00:10:48.003
  • - Isn't that a wordin season that,
  • 00:10:48.003 --> 00:10:50.539
  • sometimes your wife can'tdo your praising for you.
  • 00:10:50.539 --> 00:10:55.277
  • Sometimes your momma can'tdo your praying for you.
  • 00:10:55.277 --> 00:10:58.047
  • Sometimes your, your
  • 00:10:58.047 --> 00:11:01.217
  • your prayer partnerthat you call
  • 00:11:01.217 --> 00:11:03.686
  • for your prayer, theycan't be there for you.
  • 00:11:03.686 --> 00:11:06.088
  • The choir is not therefor me anymore (laughs).
  • 00:11:06.088 --> 00:11:08.591
  • To lift my spirit,nobody's there.
  • 00:11:08.591 --> 00:11:10.893
  • But, not becausethey don't care,
  • 00:11:10.893 --> 00:11:13.095
  • but because we'reall in this together.
  • 00:11:13.095 --> 00:11:14.830
  • But in those moments,and I tell you
  • 00:11:14.830 --> 00:11:17.533
  • this is the biggest,maybe the biggest thing
  • 00:11:17.533 --> 00:11:19.702
  • that people can learnfrom this crisis is
  • 00:11:19.702 --> 00:11:21.704
  • you need to learn howto encourage yourself.
  • 00:11:21.704 --> 00:11:24.540
  • You need to learn how toread the Bible for yourself.
  • 00:11:24.540 --> 00:11:27.543
  • You need to learn how to preach
  • 00:11:27.543 --> 00:11:28.744
  • to your children for yourself.
  • 00:11:28.744 --> 00:11:30.112
  • - [Woman] So good.
  • 00:11:30.112 --> 00:11:31.380
  • - You need to learn howto worship in your home
  • 00:11:31.380 --> 00:11:35.184
  • for yourself.
  • 00:11:35.184 --> 00:11:36.418
  • Do you know that inthe book of Acts,
  • 00:11:36.418 --> 00:11:38.521
  • the word church ismentioned nineteen times?
  • 00:11:39.855 --> 00:11:42.224
  • Ecclesia, church.
  • 00:11:42.224 --> 00:11:44.126
  • - [Man] My goodness.
  • 00:11:44.126 --> 00:11:45.561
  • - But home or homes ismentioned thirty-nine times.
  • 00:11:45.561 --> 00:11:48.631
  • More miracles by farhappened in peoples homes
  • 00:11:48.631 --> 00:11:51.600
  • than ever happened in asynagogue or a church.
  • 00:11:51.600 --> 00:11:55.504
  • And the book of Acts started,
  • 00:11:56.672 --> 00:11:59.275
  • with mighty moves ofGod in people's homes.
  • 00:11:59.275 --> 00:12:02.912
  • And so that story thatI was just referring to,
  • 00:12:02.912 --> 00:12:05.281
  • when David encouragedhimself in the Lord
  • 00:12:05.281 --> 00:12:08.083
  • because God can't use gripers.
  • 00:12:08.083 --> 00:12:10.853
  • God can't use complainers.
  • 00:12:10.853 --> 00:12:13.255
  • You know,
  • 00:12:14.990 --> 00:12:16.559
  • God can use
  • 00:12:16.559 --> 00:12:19.128
  • sinners.
  • 00:12:19.128 --> 00:12:19.995
  • I really feel the Lord inwhat I am about to say.
  • 00:12:21.430 --> 00:12:24.266
  • I hear the Lord now.
  • 00:12:24.266 --> 00:12:26.368
  • God can use sinners,God can use failures
  • 00:12:26.368 --> 00:12:29.271
  • but he cannot use quitters.
  • 00:12:29.271 --> 00:12:31.173
  • - [Man] My goodness.
  • 00:12:31.173 --> 00:12:32.374
  • - You cannot quit now,you cannot give up
  • 00:12:32.374 --> 00:12:35.411
  • on your dream and on yourcall and on your purpose now,
  • 00:12:35.411 --> 00:12:39.415
  • because the househas been burned,
  • 00:12:39.415 --> 00:12:41.417
  • and stuff has been taken andthe wealth is dissipating
  • 00:12:41.417 --> 00:12:45.521
  • and your future feels uncertain.
  • 00:12:45.521 --> 00:12:49.024
  • The Bible said when heencouraged himself in the Lord.
  • 00:12:49.024 --> 00:12:52.127
  • How do you do that?
  • 00:12:52.127 --> 00:12:53.596
  • You need to rehearse thepast victories in your life.
  • 00:12:53.596 --> 00:12:56.265
  • You need to remember you'reunder divine protection.
  • 00:12:57.933 --> 00:13:02.238
  • And you need to rethinkwho your God is.
  • 00:13:02.238 --> 00:13:06.141
  • He's able and he's with us.
  • 00:13:06.141 --> 00:13:07.810
  • And the Bible said the wordof the Lord came to him
  • 00:13:07.810 --> 00:13:11.347
  • and said pursue,
  • 00:13:11.347 --> 00:13:12.681
  • get up, and go after it,
  • 00:13:13.782 --> 00:13:15.751
  • and pursue for youshall recover it all.
  • 00:13:15.751 --> 00:13:20.222
  • And it leaves theselittle words on there
  • 00:13:20.222 --> 00:13:21.657
  • "and spoils besides".
  • 00:13:21.657 --> 00:13:23.893
  • I don't believe that we'rejust going to break even.
  • 00:13:23.893 --> 00:13:26.862
  • I don't believethat we as a nation,
  • 00:13:26.862 --> 00:13:29.231
  • America, nor you as a ministryor as a business person
  • 00:13:29.231 --> 00:13:33.869
  • are just going to get backmaybe close to where you were.
  • 00:13:33.869 --> 00:13:38.874
  • But I'm claiming that scripture,
  • 00:13:39.742 --> 00:13:40.876
  • for everybodywatching this program.
  • 00:13:40.876 --> 00:13:42.945
  • More than height, morethan preaching his sermon,
  • 00:13:42.945 --> 00:13:45.481
  • it became aliveto me those words.
  • 00:13:45.481 --> 00:13:47.416
  • The key to it is he hadto encourage himself,
  • 00:13:47.416 --> 00:13:50.953
  • in the Lord his God.
  • 00:13:50.953 --> 00:13:52.488
  • And when he did,the scripture said,
  • 00:13:52.488 --> 00:13:54.523
  • that he pursued and he recoveredit all and spoils besides.
  • 00:13:54.523 --> 00:13:59.528
  • Right in the middleof this pandemic,
  • 00:14:00.896 --> 00:14:03.032
  • God, I believe, isgoing to set people up
  • 00:14:03.032 --> 00:14:07.469
  • to bless them even greater,than where they were before.
  • 00:14:07.469 --> 00:14:12.474
  • You're gonna get backwhat the enemy has stolen,
  • 00:14:13.876 --> 00:14:15.644
  • and spoils besides.
  • 00:14:15.644 --> 00:14:18.781
  • I believe that for TBN.
  • 00:14:18.781 --> 00:14:20.182
  • - [Man] Thank you Lord.
  • 00:14:20.182 --> 00:14:21.417
  • - I believe thatfor this ministry.
  • 00:14:21.417 --> 00:14:22.918
  • That even in the midst ofeverything that's going on,
  • 00:14:22.918 --> 00:14:26.822
  • God says, I am going to expand,
  • 00:14:26.822 --> 00:14:30.926
  • enlarge your territory.
  • 00:14:30.926 --> 00:14:32.194
  • - [Man] Thank you Lord.
  • 00:14:32.194 --> 00:14:34.196
  • - And it's happening.
  • 00:14:34.196 --> 00:14:35.364
  • I think it's happeningfor many people.
  • 00:14:35.364 --> 00:14:36.832
  • And one of the keysis just to learn to
  • 00:14:36.832 --> 00:14:39.868
  • encourage yourself in the Lord.
  • 00:14:39.868 --> 00:14:42.571
  • - [Woman] I love that.
  • 00:14:42.571 --> 00:14:44.173
  • - [Man] How wouldsomebody do that?
  • 00:14:44.173 --> 00:14:48.410
  • Help us, walk us through that.
  • 00:14:48.410 --> 00:14:51.213
  • - Well for me, I preachto myself sometimes.
  • 00:14:51.213 --> 00:14:54.316
  • You gotta learn howto preach to yourself.
  • 00:14:54.316 --> 00:14:56.618
  • I say three things tomyself when I'm in my most
  • 00:14:59.355 --> 00:15:02.224
  • discouraging moments.
  • 00:15:02.224 --> 00:15:03.692
  • Number one, I remindmyself, Jesus is with me.
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:08.464
  • And he has all power.
  • 00:15:08.464 --> 00:15:10.265
  • He's with me rightnow on this set.
  • 00:15:10.265 --> 00:15:12.835
  • He's with me this verymoment in your house,
  • 00:15:14.036 --> 00:15:17.239
  • in that room, in yourapartment, Jesus is with me.
  • 00:15:17.239 --> 00:15:22.044
  • Sometimes I'll lookin the mirror when I'm
  • 00:15:22.044 --> 00:15:24.747
  • feeling the weight of
  • 00:15:25.848 --> 00:15:28.384
  • a sermon I'm about to preach,
  • 00:15:28.384 --> 00:15:30.519
  • or some pressure situation.
  • 00:15:30.519 --> 00:15:32.521
  • And I'll remind myself, I haveto preach to a lot of people,
  • 00:15:32.521 --> 00:15:36.091
  • but I've learned topreach to myself.
  • 00:15:36.091 --> 00:15:37.559
  • - [Man] There you go.
  • 00:15:37.559 --> 00:15:38.827
  • - And what I sayis three things.
  • 00:15:38.827 --> 00:15:40.429
  • Number one I say, Jesus iswith me and he has all power.
  • 00:15:40.429 --> 00:15:45.234
  • Number two, in Deuteronomy 33
  • 00:15:45.234 --> 00:15:48.504
  • when Moses
  • 00:15:48.504 --> 00:15:49.805
  • was giving his final, itwas a beautiful moment.
  • 00:15:49.805 --> 00:15:52.307
  • His final farewell sermonto the children of Israel.
  • 00:15:52.307 --> 00:15:55.677
  • They were about to cross over,
  • 00:15:55.677 --> 00:15:57.079
  • and he's not gonnaget to go with them.
  • 00:15:57.079 --> 00:15:59.281
  • He's gonna stay in Mount Nebo.
  • 00:15:59.281 --> 00:16:01.216
  • And he gives thisbeautiful sermon,
  • 00:16:01.216 --> 00:16:03.185
  • and he says our God is a God of
  • 00:16:03.185 --> 00:16:06.221
  • the mountains.
  • 00:16:07.122 --> 00:16:08.824
  • And he starts namingthe mountains andthe peaks where God
  • 00:16:08.824 --> 00:16:12.094
  • did this and where Abrahamon the mountain offered.
  • 00:16:12.094 --> 00:16:15.297
  • And how offered Isaac andhow the ten commandments
  • 00:16:15.297 --> 00:16:19.001
  • were given on a mountain.
  • 00:16:19.001 --> 00:16:20.235
  • And he starts namingall the blessings.
  • 00:16:20.235 --> 00:16:21.837
  • He says he rides the highplaces, and he's bragging.
  • 00:16:21.837 --> 00:16:25.340
  • The God of the mountains.
  • 00:16:25.340 --> 00:16:26.842
  • And then it's almost like inthe middle if you read it,
  • 00:16:26.842 --> 00:16:29.812
  • right in the middle islike he does a shift,
  • 00:16:29.812 --> 00:16:31.947
  • and he says I'vegotta remind people.
  • 00:16:31.947 --> 00:16:35.084
  • Because I don't want themto think that if they
  • 00:16:36.485 --> 00:16:38.987
  • are walking with God it willalways be a mountain top.
  • 00:16:38.987 --> 00:16:43.192
  • Then he throws thisverse in there.
  • 00:16:44.326 --> 00:16:46.228
  • Our God
  • 00:16:47.696 --> 00:16:48.864
  • the eternal refuge,
  • 00:16:48.864 --> 00:16:51.166
  • is our God.
  • 00:16:52.734 --> 00:16:54.203
  • And then it says thesewords, and underneath us,
  • 00:16:54.203 --> 00:16:58.006
  • are the everlasting arms.
  • 00:16:58.006 --> 00:16:59.908
  • Underneath, is a word"tavach" in Hebrew
  • 00:17:01.043 --> 00:17:04.880
  • which means, at the bottom.
  • 00:17:04.880 --> 00:17:06.915
  • So here's the thing Ipreach in the mirror.
  • 00:17:06.915 --> 00:17:09.318
  • I preach, number one,Jesus is with you Jensen.
  • 00:17:09.318 --> 00:17:11.920
  • Jesus is with you, I don'tcare what you're facing,
  • 00:17:11.920 --> 00:17:14.756
  • Jesus is with you.
  • 00:17:14.756 --> 00:17:17.192
  • And number two, Godis at the bottom.
  • 00:17:17.192 --> 00:17:20.095
  • Underneath me, I don'tcare how far I go down.
  • 00:17:21.263 --> 00:17:23.332
  • If I look around, down theresomewhere, rock bottom.
  • 00:17:23.332 --> 00:17:26.835
  • You may have hit as low,you may have gone as deep
  • 00:17:26.835 --> 00:17:30.439
  • into despair anddepression as you can go.
  • 00:17:30.439 --> 00:17:33.475
  • But once you hit, theBible said underneath,
  • 00:17:33.475 --> 00:17:35.677
  • as low as you cango, underneath.
  • 00:17:35.677 --> 00:17:38.013
  • Underneath my family,underneath my marriage.
  • 00:17:38.013 --> 00:17:41.783
  • Underneath my children,underneath my ministry.
  • 00:17:41.783 --> 00:17:45.754
  • Underneath my futurewhen it seems like
  • 00:17:45.754 --> 00:17:47.856
  • it's at the lowestpoint, underneath it all,
  • 00:17:47.856 --> 00:17:50.359
  • are the everlasting arms of God.
  • 00:17:50.359 --> 00:17:52.794
  • - [Man] Thank you Lord.
  • 00:17:52.794 --> 00:17:54.329
  • - So I preached it myselfJensen, Jesus is with you.
  • 00:17:54.329 --> 00:17:56.398
  • Jensen God is at the bottom.
  • 00:17:56.398 --> 00:17:58.600
  • Somebody needs to hear that.
  • 00:17:58.600 --> 00:18:00.068
  • God is at the bottom.
  • 00:18:00.068 --> 00:18:01.970
  • He's not just Lordof the mountains.
  • 00:18:03.172 --> 00:18:06.141
  • He's not just God ofthe mountains, he'sLord of the valley.
  • 00:18:06.141 --> 00:18:09.311
  • He even told one people hewas gonna give them victory
  • 00:18:10.746 --> 00:18:12.781
  • because his enemy said,
  • 00:18:12.781 --> 00:18:14.283
  • their God is just theGod of the mountains.
  • 00:18:14.283 --> 00:18:16.785
  • But he said, I'm theGod of the valleys
  • 00:18:16.785 --> 00:18:18.420
  • and I want you to gofight them in that valley.
  • 00:18:18.420 --> 00:18:20.455
  • - Valley, and I'm gonna showthem that I can give miracles
  • 00:18:21.857 --> 00:18:23.325
  • in valleys, and then, thelast thing that I tell myself,
  • 00:18:23.325 --> 00:18:26.728
  • preach to myself is Romans says,
  • 00:18:27.596 --> 00:18:32.568
  • I think it's the 12th chapter,that says God has given
  • 00:18:33.936 --> 00:18:36.471
  • to every man themeasure of faith.
  • 00:18:36.471 --> 00:18:38.907
  • The measure, in other words,anything you face in life,
  • 00:18:42.711 --> 00:18:47.716
  • God has given you enough faithto overcome that situation,
  • 00:18:49.151 --> 00:18:52.988
  • and so, I say to myself,I preach to myself,
  • 00:18:54.156 --> 00:18:56.358
  • Jesus is with me,God is at the bottom,
  • 00:18:56.358 --> 00:18:59.761
  • and here's a big one,I have faith for this.
  • 00:18:59.761 --> 00:19:02.030
  • I have faith for this.
  • 00:19:03.265 --> 00:19:04.366
  • He gave me the measure of faith.
  • 00:19:04.366 --> 00:19:06.401
  • You've got a bad doctor'sreport, cancer, whatever,
  • 00:19:06.401 --> 00:19:08.737
  • I have faith for this.
  • 00:19:08.737 --> 00:19:10.005
  • Talk to it, talk toit, preach back at it.
  • 00:19:10.005 --> 00:19:13.508
  • I have faith for this.
  • 00:19:13.508 --> 00:19:15.010
  • Got a financial challenge,I have faith for this.
  • 00:19:15.010 --> 00:19:17.479
  • In crazy times, precarioustimes as a nation,
  • 00:19:17.479 --> 00:19:21.216
  • and as business people,but I have faith for this.
  • 00:19:21.216 --> 00:19:24.486
  • Faith is important.
  • 00:19:24.486 --> 00:19:25.721
  • That's why Jesus, canI keep going a minute?
  • 00:19:26.922 --> 00:19:28.790
  • I feel this.
  • 00:19:28.790 --> 00:19:29.825
  • - [All] Yes.
  • 00:19:29.825 --> 00:19:31.059
  • - Do you know whyfaith is important?
  • 00:19:31.059 --> 00:19:32.995
  • Think about this.
  • 00:19:34.162 --> 00:19:35.831
  • Jesus said to Peter, youare being singled out
  • 00:19:35.831 --> 00:19:39.568
  • by Satan himself.
  • 00:19:39.568 --> 00:19:41.570
  • He's going to sift you.
  • 00:19:41.570 --> 00:19:42.938
  • He's coming after you,and he didn't say,
  • 00:19:42.938 --> 00:19:46.575
  • he said, notice whatJesus said to him,
  • 00:19:46.575 --> 00:19:48.277
  • and I have prayed foryou, and what did he pray,
  • 00:19:48.277 --> 00:19:51.513
  • what did he pray?
  • 00:19:51.513 --> 00:19:52.948
  • Did he pray his financeswould be at an all-time high?
  • 00:19:52.948 --> 00:19:54.983
  • Did he pray that he wouldhave smooth sailing,
  • 00:19:54.983 --> 00:19:57.152
  • and no problems,and a wonderful,
  • 00:19:57.152 --> 00:19:58.620
  • beautiful life, pressure free?
  • 00:19:58.620 --> 00:20:01.390
  • No, he prayed one prayer.
  • 00:20:01.390 --> 00:20:03.592
  • He said I have prayedthat your faith fail not
  • 00:20:03.592 --> 00:20:08.563
  • because if I lose thehouse, if I lose the job,
  • 00:20:09.998 --> 00:20:12.301
  • if I lose this, andthat, and the other,
  • 00:20:12.301 --> 00:20:15.570
  • and I still havefaith, I will recover.
  • 00:20:15.570 --> 00:20:20.008
  • I will recover, andthe other thing is,
  • 00:20:21.576 --> 00:20:26.581
  • it just takes alittle bit of faith,
  • 00:20:28.050 --> 00:20:29.851
  • the size of a mustard seed.
  • 00:20:31.119 --> 00:20:33.588
  • You know what, do youknow why David went out,
  • 00:20:33.588 --> 00:20:36.124
  • and he had fiverocks, instead of one?
  • 00:20:36.124 --> 00:20:39.728
  • He was only fighting one giant.
  • 00:20:39.728 --> 00:20:41.029
  • Why did he take five?
  • 00:20:41.029 --> 00:20:41.997
  • - [Man] Yeah, I don't know.
  • 00:20:41.997 --> 00:20:43.265
  • - In case he missed.
  • 00:20:43.265 --> 00:20:44.466
  • (woman laughs)
  • 00:20:44.466 --> 00:20:47.035
  • - And sometimes,sometimes the real thing
  • 00:20:48.103 --> 00:20:51.973
  • the Lord spoke tome about that was
  • 00:20:51.973 --> 00:20:53.842
  • I never send you into a battlewithout more than enough.
  • 00:20:53.842 --> 00:20:58.547

  • when you're going in myname, where I tell you to go,
  • 00:21:03.819 --> 00:21:07.489
  • and facing the giantthat I call you to face,
  • 00:21:07.489 --> 00:21:10.359
  • then you can knowthat you already have
  • 00:21:11.727 --> 00:21:14.262
  • more than enough.
  • 00:21:14.262 --> 00:21:16.565

  • 00:25:45.767 --> 00:25:49.738
  • a deal where I had boilsfrom a blood situation
  • 00:25:49.738 --> 00:25:54.743
  • come all over my body, basicallyhad to drop out of school
  • 00:25:56.111 --> 00:25:58.613
  • and do homeschool my senioryear, and I went from being
  • 00:25:58.613 --> 00:26:02.183
  • popular, to nobody and nofriends, and I had boils
  • 00:26:02.183 --> 00:26:06.655
  • from the top of myhead, all over my body.
  • 00:26:06.655 --> 00:26:09.057
  • It was the most painful,awful, I looked like a freak.
  • 00:26:09.057 --> 00:26:11.926
  • I looked like, my eyes wouldswell, my nose, my lips,
  • 00:26:11.926 --> 00:26:15.530
  • my mouth, my neck, all theway down, and in those times,
  • 00:26:15.530 --> 00:26:20.535
  • I would go over tomy dad's church,
  • 00:26:21.703 --> 00:26:23.171
  • and I had to go to schoolsome, and at times,
  • 00:26:24.539 --> 00:26:28.309
  • I would wear a big coat.
  • 00:26:28.309 --> 00:26:29.511
  • It was so embarrassing,so humiliating
  • 00:26:29.511 --> 00:26:31.946
  • that I would go to school,and kids can be cruel,
  • 00:26:31.946 --> 00:26:35.283
  • and I wouldsometimes skip school
  • 00:26:35.283 --> 00:26:38.586
  • because I was reallybroke out bad,
  • 00:26:38.586 --> 00:26:41.122
  • and I would go to thatchurch, I had a key
  • 00:26:41.122 --> 00:26:44.225
  • to my dad's church, and Iwould get in that church,
  • 00:26:44.225 --> 00:26:47.395
  • and get up under the soundbooth up in the balcony,
  • 00:26:47.395 --> 00:26:49.998
  • they used to put the soundbooth in the balcony,
  • 00:26:49.998 --> 00:26:53.301
  • and I would lay underthere, and I would listen
  • 00:26:53.301 --> 00:26:57.105
  • to preaching, andlisten to music,
  • 00:26:57.105 --> 00:27:01.376
  • and then, I would go down,and I would play my horn,
  • 00:27:02.844 --> 00:27:06.314
  • and play the piano, and that'swhere, in that one summer,
  • 00:27:06.314 --> 00:27:10.518
  • through that year, itlasted for a solid year,
  • 00:27:10.518 --> 00:27:14.622
  • it went from doctor to doctor,they couldn't do anything,
  • 00:27:14.622 --> 00:27:17.592
  • but in that time is whenI started really playing,
  • 00:27:17.592 --> 00:27:20.662
  • really practicing, reallyapplying, and really learning
  • 00:27:20.662 --> 00:27:23.665
  • how to encourage myself.
  • 00:27:23.665 --> 00:27:26.000
  • My ministry came, tothis day when I preach,
  • 00:27:27.769 --> 00:27:31.639
  • I remember that didn'tsound like a big deal
  • 00:27:31.639 --> 00:27:35.877
  • when you're 57 years old,but when you're 17 years old,
  • 00:27:35.877 --> 00:27:40.882
  • and you have, you've gonefrom being a regular,
  • 00:27:42.283 --> 00:27:43.918
  • popular kid, butI look at it now,
  • 00:27:43.918 --> 00:27:45.920
  • and it's one of the greatestgifts that God ever game me
  • 00:27:45.920 --> 00:27:48.890
  • was to have me under thatsound booth for weeks,
  • 00:27:48.890 --> 00:27:52.927
  • and weeks, and months.
  • 00:27:52.927 --> 00:27:54.829
  • - [Woman] At the bottom.
  • 00:27:54.829 --> 00:27:56.064
  • - And when, exactly,and when I preach now,
  • 00:27:56.064 --> 00:27:58.466
  • to this day, my mind goesback to those moments
  • 00:27:58.466 --> 00:28:03.271
  • where I felt, I became,I wouldn't go in public.
  • 00:28:03.271 --> 00:28:08.076
  • I would noticelighting in a room
  • 00:28:08.076 --> 00:28:10.945
  • before I would walk in,and I was so ashamed,
  • 00:28:10.945 --> 00:28:13.214
  • and so embarrassed, andso now, when I see a kid,
  • 00:28:13.214 --> 00:28:17.018
  • or when I see somebody whodoesn't have the clothes,
  • 00:28:17.018 --> 00:28:19.554
  • or I see somebody.
  • 00:28:19.554 --> 00:28:20.722
  • - My heart instantlygoes to that person
  • 00:28:21.890 --> 00:28:24.425
  • because that was me. And Ithought it was a joke that God
  • 00:28:24.425 --> 00:28:29.397
  • would call me to preachbecause he called me right
  • 00:28:29.397 --> 00:28:32.567
  • before I went through thisand I thought I'll never stand
  • 00:28:32.567 --> 00:28:37.205
  • before people, I'll never-I would never come in
  • 00:28:37.205 --> 00:28:40.275
  • and be on a show inthe condition I was in.
  • 00:28:40.275 --> 00:28:42.677
  • But God was giving me- teachingme something through that.
  • 00:28:42.677 --> 00:28:46.514
  • That would- sometimes, tothis day, when I sing a song
  • 00:28:47.949 --> 00:28:50.919
  • or I play a song, I'm notwhere I am, I go back.
  • 00:28:50.919 --> 00:28:55.924
  • [Off-Screen]- My God.
  • 00:28:56.691 --> 00:28:58.259
  • - I go back to those dayswhere the enemy whispered,
  • 00:28:58.259 --> 00:28:59.794
  • demons whispered, I'm justgonna say it, kill yourself.
  • 00:28:59.794 --> 00:29:03.464
  • Take your life. And it sounds-but to a seventeen year old
  • 00:29:03.464 --> 00:29:08.436
  • when you- you know it'sone thing when it's a week,
  • 00:29:09.871 --> 00:29:11.039
  • a month, threemonths, six months...
  • 00:29:11.039 --> 00:29:13.107
  • You go through something that'skind of like this situation
  • 00:29:13.107 --> 00:29:17.779
  • we're in, you know,enough is enough.
  • 00:29:17.779 --> 00:29:20.648
  • David said how long, oh Lord.
  • 00:29:20.648 --> 00:29:22.383
  • Have you ever been ina situation like that?
  • 00:29:22.383 --> 00:29:24.118
  • Where you saidhow long, oh Lord?
  • 00:29:24.118 --> 00:29:26.354
  • Somebody's been cryingout how long is my child
  • 00:29:26.354 --> 00:29:29.724
  • going to be in thiscondition, be an addict.
  • 00:29:29.724 --> 00:29:32.660
  • How long am I going to havethese issues? How long?
  • 00:29:32.660 --> 00:29:36.331
  • But I promise youGod is at the bottom.
  • 00:29:36.331 --> 00:29:39.300
  • Jesus is with you andyou have faith for this.
  • 00:29:39.300 --> 00:29:42.170
  • But when I worship,I find myself-
  • 00:29:42.170 --> 00:29:45.506
  • sometimes I'd spend thenight in the church.
  • 00:29:45.506 --> 00:29:47.642
  • Literally sleep on thepews and play piano also.
  • 00:29:47.642 --> 00:29:52.347
  • And I just played and sang and
  • 00:29:52.347 --> 00:29:54.649
  • out of that worshipcame my ministry.
  • 00:29:54.649 --> 00:29:58.720
  • - So how many people aregoing through that right now?
  • 00:29:58.720 --> 00:30:00.989
  • That out of this moment,out of this time,
  • 00:30:00.989 --> 00:30:04.259
  • the bottom of your ropeis where Jesus' office is.
  • 00:30:04.259 --> 00:30:07.896
  • You know, how many will...
  • 00:30:07.896 --> 00:30:09.597
  • (snaps fingers)
  • 00:30:09.597 --> 00:30:11.266
  • Sparking ministry allthis world right now.
  • 00:30:11.266 --> 00:30:13.368
  • - People look at you two and-you're a beautiful couple
  • 00:30:13.368 --> 00:30:15.069
  • and all of that- but theythink you got a perfect life.
  • 00:30:15.069 --> 00:30:18.006
  • They think that it's justshowing up and doing tv
  • 00:30:18.006 --> 00:30:21.175
  • and all of that.They have no clue.
  • 00:30:21.175 --> 00:30:24.612
  • I love what youstarted out saying.
  • 00:30:24.612 --> 00:30:27.081
  • That we're all inthe same situations.
  • 00:30:27.081 --> 00:30:30.485
  • And we've got to learn-we've got to learn
  • 00:30:30.485 --> 00:30:33.388
  • how to just lean onJesus. Lean on the Lord.
  • 00:30:33.388 --> 00:30:37.525
  • - You know what I think youjust said was so powerful
  • 00:30:37.525 --> 00:30:39.394
  • is if you don'tquit, you can't quit.
  • 00:30:39.394 --> 00:30:42.297
  • - Come on.
  • 00:30:42.297 --> 00:30:43.765
  • - That's what you said.He can't use a quitter.
  • 00:30:43.765 --> 00:30:46.100
  • Someone that just gives up.
  • 00:30:46.100 --> 00:30:48.303
  • - You can't give up.
  • 00:30:48.303 --> 00:30:49.504
  • - 'Cause if yougive up on yourself,
  • 00:30:49.504 --> 00:30:50.305
  • you give up on God.
  • 00:30:50.305 --> 00:30:51.773
  • - Marcus Luttrell wrote abook called The Lone Survivor,
  • 00:30:51.773 --> 00:30:55.009
  • I don't know if you've readit, it's pretty amazing.
  • 00:30:55.009 --> 00:30:56.711
  • He's the guy thatwas the Navy Seal.
  • 00:30:56.711 --> 00:31:00.915
  • And they did a moviecalled The Lone Survivor
  • 00:31:00.915 --> 00:31:03.651
  • and I'll sum this up,but it's really powerful
  • 00:31:03.651 --> 00:31:06.487
  • because the wholefirst part of the book
  • 00:31:06.487 --> 00:31:08.456
  • all he does is talks abouthow brutal the training is
  • 00:31:08.456 --> 00:31:13.127
  • to become a Navy Seal.It actually takes months
  • 00:31:13.127 --> 00:31:16.731
  • of preparation just to qualifyto try out for Navy Seals.
  • 00:31:16.731 --> 00:31:21.235
  • I mean, it's monthsand months of
  • 00:31:21.235 --> 00:31:22.670
  • strenuous things thatwould break almost anybody.
  • 00:31:22.670 --> 00:31:25.940
  • And then comes whatthey call hell week.
  • 00:31:25.940 --> 00:31:28.343
  • And it is exactly what itis. I mean, it is brutal.
  • 00:31:29.811 --> 00:31:33.181
  • And this is what he says,bottom line in the book.
  • 00:31:33.181 --> 00:31:36.184
  • He says theinstructors are putting
  • 00:31:36.184 --> 00:31:38.353
  • more and more and moreon you for one reason.
  • 00:31:38.353 --> 00:31:41.889
  • It's not to breakyou physically,
  • 00:31:41.889 --> 00:31:44.359
  • but to break you mentally.
  • 00:31:44.359 --> 00:31:46.694
  • And so what they dois they set up a veil.
  • 00:31:46.694 --> 00:31:50.198
  • Like an old fashioned veilon a stand and at any moment
  • 00:31:50.198 --> 00:31:55.203
  • when you've had allthat you can take,
  • 00:31:55.203 --> 00:31:57.438
  • all you have to do, afteryou've carried the logs
  • 00:31:58.873 --> 00:32:02.610
  • and been in the freezing water.
  • 00:32:02.610 --> 00:32:04.012
  • You know they traindown the road down here.
  • 00:32:04.012 --> 00:32:05.713
  • You can go watch them sometime.
  • 00:32:05.713 --> 00:32:07.181
  • And it's unbelievable-hours and hours- no sleep.
  • 00:32:07.181 --> 00:32:09.984
  • Hell week is just unbelievable.
  • 00:32:09.984 --> 00:32:12.186
  • And at any moment that youdecide I can't take it anymore,
  • 00:32:12.186 --> 00:32:15.957
  • all you have to do is walkover, don't say a word,
  • 00:32:15.957 --> 00:32:20.361
  • take the rope on that veil,and just ring the bell-
  • 00:32:20.361 --> 00:32:24.265
  • it's called the quit option.
  • 00:32:24.265 --> 00:32:25.867
  • And what I want to do rightnow is to challenge everybody
  • 00:32:28.002 --> 00:32:31.039
  • to remove the quit option.
  • 00:32:31.039 --> 00:32:32.707
  • - There you go.
  • 00:32:32.707 --> 00:32:33.541
  • - It's time to removethe quit option and say
  • 00:32:34.709 --> 00:32:37.445
  • you know what, I don'tknow what the future holds
  • 00:32:37.445 --> 00:32:40.281
  • but Jesus is with me,God is at the bottom,
  • 00:32:40.281 --> 00:32:43.084
  • I have faith for this.And everything that you're
  • 00:32:43.084 --> 00:32:46.721
  • believing for is on theother side of not giving up.
  • 00:32:46.721 --> 00:32:49.557
  • Don't you quit now.Now is not- listen.
  • 00:32:51.092 --> 00:32:53.628
  • The Bible in Ecclesiastesthree has twenty eight seasons.
  • 00:32:53.628 --> 00:32:58.633
  • A time to cry, a time tolaugh, a time to dance,
  • 00:32:59.834 --> 00:33:02.703
  • a time mourn. One seasonyou'll never find in there,
  • 00:33:02.703 --> 00:33:06.908
  • a time to quit.
  • 00:33:06.908 --> 00:33:07.842
  • - My God.
  • 00:33:07.842 --> 00:33:09.077
  • - There's never aright time to quit.
  • 00:33:09.077 --> 00:33:11.712
  • Hold on. Worship your waythrough. That's what I did.
  • 00:33:13.147 --> 00:33:16.117
  • - So when you guys play, andI want you guys to get up
  • 00:33:16.117 --> 00:33:19.787
  • and get your thing and do...
  • 00:33:19.787 --> 00:33:20.755
  • - I'll grab my horn. Can I?
  • 00:33:20.755 --> 00:33:21.989
  • - Yeah, grab it.But at some point,
  • 00:33:21.989 --> 00:33:24.625
  • what it feels like you'vedescribed, and what I
  • 00:33:24.625 --> 00:33:28.196
  • full understand now,if you're playing-
  • 00:33:28.196 --> 00:33:29.797
  • when you're playing, you'replaying to the younger you
  • 00:33:29.797 --> 00:33:34.569
  • out from underneath that audioboard at your dad's church,
  • 00:33:36.370 --> 00:33:40.108
  • thinking that your life andessence almost was over.
  • 00:33:40.108 --> 00:33:43.511
  • - Right.
  • 00:33:43.511 --> 00:33:44.745
  • - Called to preachbut not able to.
  • 00:33:44.745 --> 00:33:46.914
  • - Right.
  • 00:33:46.914 --> 00:33:48.082
  • - So music's notsomething you just do.
  • 00:33:48.082 --> 00:33:50.818
  • Music is part of who you are.
  • 00:33:50.818 --> 00:33:53.087
  • - He says he teaches my handsto war, my fingers to fight.
  • 00:33:54.522 --> 00:33:58.392
  • That's what David said,he was a musician.
  • 00:33:58.392 --> 00:34:00.661
  • And he said he teachesmy hands to war.
  • 00:34:00.661 --> 00:34:03.364
  • He played harp, string guitar.
  • 00:34:03.364 --> 00:34:06.601
  • But when we play, the Bibletells us- it's kind of like-
  • 00:34:08.069 --> 00:34:12.273
  • and when he would playthe Bible said that Saul,
  • 00:34:12.273 --> 00:34:15.676
  • who was mentally depressedby unclean spirits,
  • 00:34:15.676 --> 00:34:19.013
  • tormenting spirits- thatwhen he would play his harp,
  • 00:34:19.013 --> 00:34:23.351
  • the scripture saidthat the evil spirits
  • 00:34:24.485 --> 00:34:26.621
  • would depart from Saul.And leave his house-
  • 00:34:26.621 --> 00:34:29.590
  • it actually says that.You know that that's why
  • 00:34:29.590 --> 00:34:31.959
  • it's powerful to watchChristian tv like TBN right now?
  • 00:34:31.959 --> 00:34:35.796
  • It's because whenan anointed song or
  • 00:34:35.796 --> 00:34:38.166
  • an anointed wordcomes in it can drive
  • 00:34:38.166 --> 00:34:40.067
  • the enemy out of your home.
  • 00:34:40.067 --> 00:34:41.769
  • Things that drive devils crazy.
  • 00:34:41.769 --> 00:34:43.971
  • I preached a sermonone time on things
  • 00:34:43.971 --> 00:34:45.873
  • that drive devils crazy.
  • 00:34:45.873 --> 00:34:48.009

  • getting to experience whatwe're feeling and sensing here
  • 00:47:40.480 --> 00:47:44.184
  • in this studio, this studiodates back to the late 70s,
  • 00:47:45.652 --> 00:47:49.289
  • all Roberts have been inthis studio many prayers,

  • Evie Hill's been in thisstudio there's just so many,

  • throughout all the years thisis the same building that
  • 00:48:00.534 --> 00:48:03.570
  • we've been in all ofthose years so many times,
  • 00:48:03.570 --> 00:48:06.940
  • and it feels like we'vekind of stirred that up,
  • 00:48:06.940 --> 00:48:11.945
  • that this is somany years later.
  • 00:48:11.945 --> 00:48:15.482
  • - 35, 40 years later,we're doing the same thing.
  • 00:48:19.052 --> 00:48:22.489
  • And now we've gota few minutes left
  • 00:48:22.489 --> 00:48:24.858
  • in the broadcastnow, Jentezen, so
  • 00:48:24.858 --> 00:48:26.827
  • we've done exactlywhat we hoped to do
  • 00:48:28.929 --> 00:48:31.064
  • but just kinda give usa little bit of a thing
  • 00:48:31.064 --> 00:48:35.402
  • and either get to my tribute
  • 00:48:35.402 --> 00:48:37.437
  • or, you know, how muchtime do we have left?
  • 00:48:37.437 --> 00:48:41.241
  • Got about seven minutes?
  • 00:48:41.241 --> 00:48:42.609

  • you know, you careand that means a lot.
  • 00:48:54.287 --> 00:48:56.723
  • And I think one of the thingsthat we can learn from this
  • 00:48:56.723 --> 00:49:00.427
  • is there are 60 one anothercommandments in the bible.
  • 00:49:00.427 --> 00:49:05.132
  • It says 60 times in your bible,
  • 00:49:06.800 --> 00:49:09.736
  • commandments like,love one another,
  • 00:49:09.736 --> 00:49:11.738
  • comfort one another,
  • 00:49:13.040 --> 00:49:14.341
  • pray for one another.
  • 00:49:17.310 --> 00:49:18.578
  • And I think if one thing ishappening that's beautiful,
  • 00:49:20.047 --> 00:49:22.416
  • and I tell you, it really is,
  • 00:49:22.416 --> 00:49:25.218
  • is people are takingserious the fact
  • 00:49:25.218 --> 00:49:28.188
  • that I can make a difference,
  • 00:49:28.188 --> 00:49:30.924
  • not just a preacher on TV,
  • 00:49:30.924 --> 00:49:32.893
  • not just my pastor in hispulpit with a lot of people,
  • 00:49:32.893 --> 00:49:37.164
  • but I have a ministry,
  • 00:49:37.164 --> 00:49:39.366
  • I can check up on somebody,I can call somebody,
  • 00:49:39.366 --> 00:49:42.369

  • 00:49:42.369 --> 00:49:44.337
  • I can love somebody.
  • 00:49:44.337 --> 00:49:46.306
  • And I don't know whatChurch is gonna look like,
  • 00:49:46.306 --> 00:49:48.675
  • I was talking with a bunchof preachers the other day
  • 00:49:48.675 --> 00:49:51.144
  • on the telephone and veryfamous, known preachers,
  • 00:49:51.144 --> 00:49:55.082
  • and nobody, nobodyknows what the future
  • 00:49:55.082 --> 00:49:58.518
  • is gonna look like for thechurch for a long time.
  • 00:49:58.518 --> 00:50:02.055
  • But I tell you one thingthat I'm planning for,
  • 00:50:02.055 --> 00:50:04.291
  • hoping for, praying for,it may or it may not,
  • 00:50:04.291 --> 00:50:06.660
  • if it does, then I pretendlike I'm a prophet,
  • 00:50:06.660 --> 00:50:09.029
  • (Laurie laughs)
  • 00:50:09.029 --> 00:50:09.996

  • 00:50:09.996 --> 00:50:11.531
  • will have a rebirth onthe day of Pentecost--
  • 00:50:11.531 --> 00:50:13.266

  • 00:50:21.374 --> 00:50:24.478
  • right in the middleof Holy Week, Easter,
  • 00:50:24.478 --> 00:50:26.847
  • which is Passover inthe Old Testament,
  • 00:50:28.014 --> 00:50:31.284
  • of course we knowthat was the week
  • 00:50:31.284 --> 00:50:32.652
  • that Jesus was crucifiedand rose again,
  • 00:50:32.652 --> 00:50:35.722
  • and that was the peakof it in our nation
  • 00:50:35.722 --> 00:50:37.891

  • 00:50:38.792 --> 00:50:40.961
  • May 31st will be 50 days,
  • 00:50:40.961 --> 00:50:43.697
  • I'm believing for the churchto have some kinda rebirth.
  • 00:50:43.697 --> 00:50:47.334
  • - Beautiful, beautiful.- That God could,
  • 00:50:47.334 --> 00:50:49.369
  • you know, give us achance to assemble again
  • 00:50:49.369 --> 00:50:53.807
  • in some, whatever it looks like.
  • 00:50:53.807 --> 00:50:56.343
  • And I tell you one thing,
  • 00:50:56.343 --> 00:50:58.078
  • I'll never take it forgranted again, will you?
  • 00:50:58.078 --> 00:51:00.247
  • Going to church--- No.
  • 00:51:00.247 --> 00:51:01.615
  • - Sitting with God's people--- It's unbelievable.
  • 00:51:01.615 --> 00:51:03.683
  • - Worshiping together,hugging necks,
  • 00:51:03.683 --> 00:51:06.119
  • shaking hands.- Seriously. (chuckles)
  • 00:51:06.119 --> 00:51:09.556
  • - I was sad whenthey said unto me,
  • 00:51:09.556 --> 00:51:11.725
  • we can't go to theHouse of the Lord,
  • 00:51:11.725 --> 00:51:14.427
  • but I'm sure thankfulfor ministries like this,
  • 00:51:14.427 --> 00:51:17.664
  • that take church into homes.
  • 00:51:17.664 --> 00:51:20.534
  • What would we do withoutministries like this?
  • 00:51:20.534 --> 00:51:23.970
  • And you mentioned it,
  • 00:51:23.970 --> 00:51:25.405
  • this network, Paul and Jan,and now Matt and Laurie,
  • 00:51:27.674 --> 00:51:32.679
  • have been so faithful
  • 00:51:33.680 --> 00:51:35.782
  • to preach Jesus Christ--- Thank you Lord.
  • 00:51:36.883 --> 00:51:39.786
  • - To the world for decades,
  • 00:51:39.786 --> 00:51:43.256
  • and I'm so moved by that
  • 00:51:44.724 --> 00:51:47.928
  • that I've had atiny part in that,
  • 00:51:47.928 --> 00:51:50.263
  • I don't belong here,I don't belong here.
  • 00:51:50.263 --> 00:51:53.833
  • I'm not--- Oh, we
  • 00:51:53.833 --> 00:51:55.235
  • would not be here without you.- I don't belong here,
  • 00:51:55.235 --> 00:51:57.270
  • but your family was kindto me, you were kind to me.
  • 00:51:57.270 --> 00:52:00.674
  • After Jan saw me play the horn,
  • 00:52:00.674 --> 00:52:02.609
  • she never wouldhave let me preach,
  • 00:52:02.609 --> 00:52:04.044
  • I kinda had a littleoffense against it.
  • 00:52:04.044 --> 00:52:06.279
  • (all laughing)I had to admit it.
  • 00:52:06.279 --> 00:52:07.847
  • But you, you were responsible
  • 00:52:07.847 --> 00:52:10.717
  • for the first time megetting to preach on TBN
  • 00:52:10.717 --> 00:52:14.187
  • on a regular series.- Amazing.
  • 00:52:14.187 --> 00:52:16.323
  • - I came and metwith you in Dallas.
  • 00:52:16.323 --> 00:52:18.225
  • - You know, Jentezen, it just,
  • 00:52:18.225 --> 00:52:20.694
  • this program has sucha sweet feel to it,
  • 00:52:20.694 --> 00:52:23.897
  • it, not only, conjures up
  • 00:52:23.897 --> 00:52:27.067
  • the days when my mom and daddy
  • 00:52:27.067 --> 00:52:29.135
  • would sit with E.V. Hill
  • 00:52:29.135 --> 00:52:30.637
  • or they would sit andthey would just share,
  • 00:52:30.637 --> 00:52:32.806
  • you've encouraged us,
  • 00:52:32.806 --> 00:52:34.107
  • you've been preachingto Laurie and me
  • 00:52:34.107 --> 00:52:36.176
  • during this broadcast--- Praise God.
  • 00:52:36.176 --> 00:52:37.811
  • - Those three things, again,
  • 00:52:37.811 --> 00:52:39.412
  • so that people write this down.
  • 00:52:39.412 --> 00:52:41.248
  • What do you
  • 00:52:41.248 --> 00:52:42.682
  • preach to yourselves--- Look in the mirror,
  • 00:52:42.682 --> 00:52:44.317
  • - Okay.- I mean,
  • 00:52:44.317 --> 00:52:45.552
  • I mean since you don'thave a preacher anymore,
  • 00:52:45.552 --> 00:52:47.420
  • (all laughing)I mean you do,
  • 00:52:47.420 --> 00:52:48.922
  • but you have to look at himon the internet or something,
  • 00:52:48.922 --> 00:52:50.857
  • but since you don'thave a preacher,
  • 00:52:50.857 --> 00:52:52.325
  • maybe it's time for you--- There you go.
  • 00:52:52.325 --> 00:52:53.360
  • - To become a preacher--- Come on.
  • 00:52:53.360 --> 00:52:54.494
  • - And preach to yourself,
  • 00:52:54.494 --> 00:52:56.329
  • and say these three things,
  • 00:52:56.329 --> 00:52:58.164
  • "Jesus is with me,"
  • 00:52:58.164 --> 00:52:59.633
  • number two, "Godis at the bottom,"
  • 00:53:01.034 --> 00:53:03.103
  • Deuteronomy 33, "Underneath me,
  • 00:53:03.103 --> 00:53:06.206
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:53:07.574 --> 00:53:09.943
  • "Underneath me are theeverlasting arms of God."
  • 00:53:09.943 --> 00:53:14.014
  • and then lastly, "Ihave faith for this."
  • 00:53:14.014 --> 00:53:16.850
  • God's given to every manthe measure of faith.
  • 00:53:16.850 --> 00:53:20.487
  • What measure is that?
  • 00:53:20.487 --> 00:53:21.688
  • And it just takes a little bit.
  • 00:53:21.688 --> 00:53:23.657
  • You know, peopleput Simon Peter down
  • 00:53:23.657 --> 00:53:25.659
  • because he started sinking
  • 00:53:25.659 --> 00:53:27.961
  • and Jesus said, "Oh,ye of little faith"
  • 00:53:27.961 --> 00:53:29.929
  • to me, that's one of thegreatest compliments,
  • 00:53:29.929 --> 00:53:31.765
  • that he actually walked onthe water with little faith.
  • 00:53:31.765 --> 00:53:35.302
  • It doesn't take great faith,I don't have great faith.
  • 00:53:36.736 --> 00:53:38.405
  • That's why I said thatearlier about David,
  • 00:53:38.405 --> 00:53:41.074
  • when he went and fought Goliath,
  • 00:53:41.074 --> 00:53:43.076
  • I think he took five stones'cause he's scared he'd miss
  • 00:53:43.076 --> 00:53:45.979
  • but he had enough to goout there. (chuckles)
  • 00:53:45.979 --> 00:53:48.882
  • And sometimes God is,
  • 00:53:48.882 --> 00:53:50.917
  • God is looking forpeople who are not
  • 00:53:50.917 --> 00:53:53.520
  • super talented, gifted,
  • 00:53:54.454 --> 00:53:56.156
  • picture perfect, but they'retotally dependent on God.
  • 00:53:57.691 --> 00:54:02.295
  • - Seal this beautifulministry time,
  • 00:54:02.295 --> 00:54:05.398
  • in the last oneminute that we have,
  • 00:54:05.398 --> 00:54:06.766
  • just seal it in prayer,if you would please?
  • 00:54:06.766 --> 00:54:08.868
  • - I wanna bless your home,
  • 00:54:08.868 --> 00:54:10.236
  • I wanna speak Numbers 6 overyour family and over your home
  • 00:54:11.671 --> 00:54:15.041
  • and our friend StevenFurtick and his team,
  • 00:54:15.041 --> 00:54:17.310
  • and Kari Jobe wrotethe most amazing song.
  • 00:54:17.310 --> 00:54:20.613
  • - Bless him.- But I called
  • 00:54:20.613 --> 00:54:21.881
  • him the other day and,
  • 00:54:21.881 --> 00:54:23.383
  • I know that we'rerunning outa time
  • 00:54:23.383 --> 00:54:24.984
  • and I'm used to this,
  • 00:54:24.984 --> 00:54:26.686
  • (Laurie laughs)I know how long a minute is.
  • 00:54:26.686 --> 00:54:29.022
  • But I promise you,
  • 00:54:29.022 --> 00:54:30.223
  • I told him I used to quotethat verse over my children
  • 00:54:31.658 --> 00:54:34.661
  • every day of their life
  • 00:54:34.661 --> 00:54:36.196
  • as I would letthem off for school
  • 00:54:36.196 --> 00:54:37.464
  • and I speak it over--- Thank you, Lord.
  • 00:54:37.464 --> 00:54:38.331
  • - And your family.
  • 00:54:38.331 --> 00:54:40.033
  • "And now may the Lord bless you
  • 00:54:40.033 --> 00:54:42.969
  • "and may He keep you,
  • 00:54:42.969 --> 00:54:44.571
  • "may He make Hisface shine on you,
  • 00:54:44.571 --> 00:54:46.873
  • "may He be gracious unto you,
  • 00:54:47.941 --> 00:54:49.609
  • "may He lift up Hiscountenance upon you
  • 00:54:49.609 --> 00:54:52.312
  • "and may He give you peace
  • 00:54:52.312 --> 00:54:54.514
  • "and may He give you protection

  • "and may He give you joy,

  • "may you be encouraged
  • 00:54:58.518 --> 00:55:00.620
  • "in the Lord today becauseHe surely is with you."
  • 00:55:02.055 --> 00:55:06.025
  • He's at the bottom,He'll never leave you,
  • 00:55:06.025 --> 00:55:08.695
  • and you have faith for this.
  • 00:55:08.695 --> 00:55:11.097
  • And you're gonna recover it all
  • 00:55:11.097 --> 00:55:13.233
  • and spoils besides.- In Jesus name.
  • 00:55:13.233 --> 00:55:16.336
