  • 00:00:52.170 --> 00:00:56.040
  • I'VE HEARD THAT OVER YOUR MINISTRY CAREER YOU'VE
  • 00:00:56.060 --> 00:00:59.120
  • WRITTEN A BOOK OR TWO.
  • 00:00:59.140 --> 00:01:01.170
  • - JOYCE MEYER: YEAH, A FEW.
  • 00:01:01.190 --> 00:01:03.020
  • - ONE OR TWO, AND TODAY WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:07.270
  • SUBJECT THAT CAN GET MISUNDERSTOOD PRETTY QUICKLY.
  • 00:01:07.290 --> 00:01:10.190
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:01:10.210 --> 00:01:11.270
  • - SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MAMA JOYCE, SHE'S GOING
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:17.100
  • TO BRING SOME NORMALITY TO THIS SUBJECT, AND IF
  • 00:01:17.120 --> 00:01:21.130
  • YOU'RE JUST TUNING IN YOUR BATTLES BELONG TO
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:25.000
  • THE LORD.
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.160
  • THAT SOUNDS LIKE GREAT NEWS.
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:28.170
  • LET'S UNPACK IT NOW FOR THE NEXT ONE HOUR PLEASE.
  • 00:01:28.190 --> 00:01:31.170
  • - WELL, EVERYBODY GETS SO EXCITED WHEN THEY HEAR
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:35.160
  • THAT TITLE, AND THAT BOOK WILL SELL JUST BECAUSE OF
  • 00:01:35.180 --> 00:01:39.030
  • THE TITLE BECAUSE PEOPLE JUST GET REALLY TIRED OF
  • 00:01:39.050 --> 00:01:42.020
  • FEELING LIKE THEY'RE FIGHTING SOMETHING ALL
  • 00:01:42.040 --> 00:01:45.050
  • THE TIME.
  • 00:01:45.070 --> 00:01:46.210
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:48.010
  • - AND SPECIALLY THEN, LIKE I KNOW FOR ME BEFORE
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:52.240
  • I KNEW THAT THE DEVIL WAS A REAL ENEMY I NEVER
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:57.040
  • HEARD THAT MUCH ABOUT THE DEVIL WHEN I WAS IN THE
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:01:59.170
  • CHURCH THAT I WAS IN FOR SEVERAL YEARS, AND I KNEW
  • 00:01:59.190 --> 00:02:04.200
  • THERE WAS A DEVIL BUT MORE LIKE A CARTOON
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:10.150
  • CHARACTER, YOU KNOW, THAT CAME OUT ON HALLOWEEN.
  • 00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:13.240
  • I DIDN'T REALLY REALIZE THAT THE DEVIL WAS BEHIND
  • 00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:16.200
  • ALL MY PROBLEMS.
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:19.030
  • NOW, WE CAN'T ALWAYS SAY THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.
  • 00:02:19.050 --> 00:02:22.100
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:02:22.120 --> 00:02:24.210
  • - BECAUSE WE HAVE FREE WILL AND SATAN CERTAINLY
  • 00:02:24.230 --> 00:02:26.240
  • DOES WORK THROUGH PEOPLE AND HE DOES WORK THROUGH
  • 00:02:26.260 --> 00:02:29.180
  • CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT I THINK WHAT I'M WANTING
  • 00:02:29.200 --> 00:02:33.150
  • PEOPLE TO REALLY REALIZE IN THIS BOOK -- LIKE TODAY,
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:37.030
  • FOR EXAMPLE, THERE'S SO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE ANGRY.
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:40.040
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: YES.
  • 00:02:40.060 --> 00:02:41.230
  • - I'VE NEVER SEEN A TIME WHEN PEOPLE ARE SO
  • 00:02:41.250 --> 00:02:43.030
  • EASILY OFFENDED.
  • 00:02:43.050 --> 00:02:45.290
  • AND WHEN I SAY PEOPLE I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:46.010 --> 00:02:47.090
  • CHRISTIAN PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:47.110 --> 00:02:48.290
  • I MEAN, I'VE DONE THIS TOO MANY YEARS AND ASKED
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:52.280
  • TOO MANY TIMES, AND THERE'S USUALLY ABOUT 70%
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:55.160
  • OF ANY SIZE CROWD THAT WILL TELL YOU THERE'S
  • 00:02:55.180 --> 00:02:59.240
  • SOMEBODY THAT THEY NEED TO FORGIVE.
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:02.250
  • AND I THINK PEOPLE DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:06.060
  • FORGIVENESS, BUT THAT'S ANOTHER WHOLE SUBJECT.
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:09.110
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN YOUR FEELINGS CHANGE.
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:11.170
  • IT MEANS YOU DECIDE TO DO WHAT GOD'S ASKED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:14.170
  • THEN HE'LL CHANGE YOUR FEELINGS.
  • 00:03:14.190 --> 00:03:16.260
  • BUT I THINK I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THE ENEMY IS
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:19.030
  • REAL, AND WHEN I FIRST STARTED LEARNING THAT I
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:23.040
  • STARTED DOING WHAT I WAS BEING TAUGHT WAS
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:26.100
  • SPIRITUAL WARFARE WHICH PRETTY MUCH WAS JUST
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:28.270
  • SCREAMING AT THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME AND
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:31.070
  • REBUKING SATAN.
  • 00:03:31.090 --> 00:03:35.290
  • RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE, AND I FINALLY
  • 00:03:36.010 --> 00:03:38.170
  • GOT TO THE POINT WHERE I SAID, I DIDN'T MEAN IT TO
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:41.230
  • BE A JOKE BUT IT WAS FUNNY, WELL, I'VE REBUKED
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:43.290
  • UNTIL MY REBUKER IS WORN OUT AND HE STILL HASN'T
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:46.220
  • GONE AWAY, SO THAT'S WHEN I HAD TO START DIGGING IN
  • 00:03:46.240 --> 00:03:51.110
  • AND LEARNING SOME THINGS, AND I REMEMBER THE LORD
  • 00:03:51.130 --> 00:03:54.070
  • SPEAKING TO MY HEART AND SAYING, WHY DON'T YOU
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:56.280
  • STUDY HOW JESUS DID SPIRITUAL WARFARE?
  • 00:03:57.000 --> 00:04:00.170
  • - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:02.010
  • - HE CERTAINLY NEVER HAD ANY TROUBLE WITH THE
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.270
  • ENEMY, AND SO I REALLY STARTED DOING THAT, AND
  • 00:04:03.290 --> 00:04:07.220
  • THAT'S PART OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:10.140
  • FOR EXAMPLE, LOVE IS WARFARE.
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:15.100
  • WALKING IN LOVE IS SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:19.170
  • WELL, IF YOU'RE REALLY GOING TO WALK IN LOVE,
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:21.130
  • THEN YOU HAVE TO FORGIVE.
  • 00:04:21.150 --> 00:04:24.020
  • AND WE COULD TALK ABOUT JUST THAT ONE ASPECT ALL
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:26.160
  • DAY BECAUSE UNFORGIVENNESS OR ANGER
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:30.120
  • OPENS THE DOOR FOR THE ENEMY, AND THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:34.030
  • IN EPHESIANS DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON
  • 00:04:34.050 --> 00:04:36.110
  • YOUR ANGER.
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:38.100
  • DON'T GIVE THE DEVIL ANY SUCH FOOTHOLD, SO IF HE
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:42.110
  • GETS A FOOTHOLD, THEN HE CAN GET A STRONGHOLD, AND
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:47.140
  • I JUST WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE WATCHING TODAY OR
  • 00:04:47.160 --> 00:04:50.220
  • EVEN THOSE OF US HERE STILL HAVE SOME
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:55.210
  • UNRESOLVED ISSUES IN YOUR HEART WITH UNFORGIVENNESS
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:05:00.150
  • AND WHAT GOD FINALLY TAUGHT ME, AND I SAY
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:04.110
  • FINALLY BECAUSE I'VE BEEN AT THINK 43 YEARS
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:06.170
  • STUDYING THE WORD, WAS THAT -- GOD SAID I SEE
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:12.150
  • PEOPLE COMING FOR PRAYER ALL THE TIME THAT I KNOW
  • 00:05:12.170 --> 00:05:15.050
  • ARE SERIOUS, THEY WANT TO FORGIVE BUT THE SAME
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:17.190
  • PEOPLE COME BACK OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:19.080
  • WHAT'S GOING ON?
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:21.040
  • AND HE SIMPLY PUT IN MY HEART THEY'RE NOT DOING
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.190
  • WHAT I TOLD THEM TO, AND THE FIRST THING THE BIBLE
  • 00:05:22.210 --> 00:05:26.030
  • SAYS IS PRAY FOR YOUR ENEMIES.
  • 00:05:26.050 --> 00:05:28.210
  • I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY REALLY DO THAT.
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:32.270
  • YOU KNOW, PRAY FOR THEM.
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:35.100
  • WE GO, I DON'T WANT TO PRAY FOR MY ENEMIES
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:36.230
  • TO BE BLESSED.
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:38.150
  • WELL, IF YOU PRAY FOR THEM TO BE BLESSED, THE
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:40.290
  • FIRST THING THEY MIGHT BE BLESSED WITH IS SOME
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:43.040
  • UNDERSTANDING ON THEIR BEHAVIOR, AND WE CAN LET
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:48.040
  • GOD DECIDE WHAT THE BLESSINGS ARE, BUT WE
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:50.130
  • NEED TO PRAY FOR OUR ENEMIES TO BE BLESSED,
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:54.180
  • BUT SECONDLY, AND THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT, IS IT
  • 00:05:54.200 --> 00:05:57.250
  • SAYS TO BLESS THEM, PRAY FOR THEM AND BLESS THEM,
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:06:04.060
  • AND THAT MEANS TO DO GOOD TO, AND IT MEANS TO
  • 00:06:04.080 --> 00:06:06.150
  • SPEAK WELL OF.
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:09.100
  • THE CURSE MEANS TO SPEAK EVIL OF.
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:11.210
  • TO BLESS TO SPEAK WELL OF.
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:14.160
  • SO YOU HAVE TO STOP TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:16.170
  • YOUR ENEMIES.
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:18.010
  • AND WE KNOW THAT'S HARD.
  • 00:06:18.030 --> 00:06:19.090
  • IF SOMEBODY'S REALLY HURT YOU AND YOU HEAR SOMEBODY
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:21.050
  • ELSE TALKING ABOUT OH, WHAT A GREAT PERSON THEY
  • 00:06:21.070 --> 00:06:24.020
  • ARE AND HOW MUCH THEY LIKE THEM, YOU JUST THINK
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:26.190
  • WELL, THAT'S, YOU KNOW -- - THEY JUST DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:06:26.210 --> 00:06:29.080
  • - THERE'S A FEW THINGS THAT YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.140
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: LET ME SHARE.
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:34.170
  • - LET ME JUST ASK YOU FOR A MINUTE SINCE YOUR
  • 00:06:34.190 --> 00:06:37.010
  • PART OF THIS, HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO WORK
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:38.250
  • THROUGH FORGIVENESS?
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:40.100
  • - LORD JESUS.
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:41.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:44.180
  • - ABSOLUTELY, YEAH. YEAH.
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:46.290
  • I MEAN, WE USUALLY WIN THAT AWARD IN SOME
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:49.120
  • REGARD, BUT AT SOME POINT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:53.090
  • TALKING ABOUT IN REGARD TO THIS SUBJECT AND
  • 00:06:53.110 --> 00:06:57.020
  • BECAUSE WHAT EVERYONE LOVES ABOUT YOU IS YOU
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:07:01.160
  • WILL CIRCUMSPECTLY KIND OF TEACH.
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:04.240
  • YOU'RE NOT -- - IS THAT RIGHT?
  • 00:07:04.260 --> 00:07:06.220
  • I JUST KIND OF TEACH?
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:09.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.270
  • - YOU HAVE BEEN AN OPEN BOOK, YOU KNOW, TO ALL OF
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.240
  • US AND HAVE TAUGHT ALL OF US SO WELL THROUGH YOUR
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:19.230
  • OWN EXPERIENCE, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:07:19.250 --> 00:07:22.060
  • HAVE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:07:22.080 --> 00:07:24.120
  • THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO GET RAW AND BARE IT
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:27.100
  • ALL, AND YOU'VE DONE A BEAUTIFUL JOB WITH THAT.
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:29.110
  • AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT.
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:32.020
  • - I'LL TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT MY DAD THAT REALLY
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:33.150
  • MAKES THE POINT.
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:35.060
  • I'D HAVE TO MAKE IT SHORT AND NOT THE LONG VERSION,
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:37.000
  • BUT MY DAD SEXUALLY ABUSED ME FOR MANY YEARS,
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:38.210
  • AND MY MOTHER KNEW HE WAS DOING IT BUT DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:40.290
  • THE COURAGE TO CONFRONT HIM BECAUSE SHE WAS
  • 00:07:41.010 --> 00:07:43.090
  • AFRAID OF HIM, TOO.
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:45.000
  • AND SO YOU KNOW, I PRAYED THE I FORGIVE YOU PRAYER
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:48.080
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES, BUT I DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:07:48.100 --> 00:07:50.180
  • ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM.
  • 00:07:50.200 --> 00:07:52.120
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO BE AROUND HIM.
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:53.280
  • IF I HAD TO GO ON HOLIDAYS, THE SOONER I
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:55.180
  • COULD GETAWAY THE HAPPIER I WAS.
  • 00:07:55.200 --> 00:07:57.240
  • AND I'D SEND HIM A LITTLE MONEY FOR THEIR BIRTHDAY
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:08:00.190
  • OR WHATEVER, BUT I WASN'T REALLY INTO THE LOVING
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:03.230
  • YOU THING YET, YOU KNOW, AND AS THEY GOT OLDER ONE
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:07.170
  • MORNING I WAS PRAYING AND YOU GOT TO BE A LITTLE
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:11.290
  • BIT CAREFUL WHEN YOU ASK GOD, IS THERE ANYTHING
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:14.080
  • YOU WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:16.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:17.090
  • I MEAN THAT CAN SOUND REAL SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:19.200
  • OH LORD, IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT ME TO DO.
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:22.000
  • I SURRENDER ALL.
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:24.070
  • AND THEN HE ASKS YOU TO DO SOMETHING YOU DON'T
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:25.290
  • WANT TO DO.
  • 00:08:26.010 --> 00:08:27.040
  • THAT'S ANOTHER STORY.
  • 00:08:27.060 --> 00:08:28.130
  • AND I REALLY SENSED IN MY HEART THAT GOD SAID I
  • 00:08:28.150 --> 00:08:30.090
  • WANT YOU TO BRING YOUR PARENTS TO THE CITY YOU
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:33.250
  • LIVE IN AND TAKE CARE OF THEM UNTIL THEY DIE.
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:39.010
  • GET THEM A HOUSE.
  • 00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:41.200
  • MAKE SURE THEY HAVE WHATEVER THEY NEED.
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:46.090
  • WELL, THE FIRST THING I DID, AND I AM NOT LYING,
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:48.180
  • I REBUKED THE DEVIL.
  • 00:08:48.200 --> 00:08:50.100
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:50.120 --> 00:08:52.280
  • I SAID, THERE IS NO WAY THAT GOD WOULD ASK ME TO
  • 00:08:53.000 --> 00:08:56.050
  • DO THAT.
  • 00:08:56.070 --> 00:08:57.250
  • - WOW.
  • 00:08:57.270 --> 00:08:59.190
  • - IT WAS INCOMPREHENSIBLE TO ME
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:01.050
  • THAT GOD WOULD ASK ME TO DO THAT.
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:03.150
  • IT'S LIKE, WELL, HOW UNJUST -- YOU KNOW THE
  • 00:09:03.170 --> 00:09:07.010
  • FIRST THING YOU DO, WELL, YOU NEVER DID ANYTHING
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:08.200
  • FOR ME.
  • 00:09:08.220 --> 00:09:10.030
  • I SAID THAT TO THE LORD.
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:11.160
  • THEY NEVER DID ANYTHING FOR ME.
  • 00:09:11.180 --> 00:09:12.240
  • AND HE SAID, WELL, YOU'RE BREATHING, AREN'T YOU?
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:15.140
  • AND SO THEY GAVE ME LIFE.
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:18.020
  • IF IT WASN'T FOR THEM I WOULDN'T BE HERE.
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:21.020
  • AND REALLY EVEN THE WAY I GREW UP HAS TURNED OUT TO
  • 00:09:21.040 --> 00:09:25.090
  • BE AGAINST THE DEVIL, NOT FOR HIM.
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:28.140
  • SO WHAT HE MEANT FOR HARM GOD TURNED IT AROUND AND
  • 00:09:28.160 --> 00:09:32.110
  • WORKED IT OUT FOR GOOD.
  • 00:09:32.130 --> 00:09:34.250
  • AND SO I JUST FORGOT ABOUT THAT GOD COULD HAVE
  • 00:09:34.270 --> 00:09:40.220
  • POSSIBLY SAID THAT AND WENT ON ABOUT
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.130
  • MY BUSINESS.
  • 00:09:42.150 --> 00:09:44.120
  • BUT YOU KNOW HOW GOD IS, WHEN HE WANTS SOMETHING
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:46.180
  • HE USUALLY DOESN'T BE QUIET ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:48.270
  • KEPT COMING UP, KEPT COMING UP.
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:50.190
  • I THOUGHT WELL, I MEAN, DAVE AND I WE MAYBE HAD
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:54.210
  • ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A SMALL HOUSE, BUT WE
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:58.110
  • DIDN'T THE MONEY TO BE BUYING PEOPLE HOUSES, AND
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:02.010
  • SO I THOUGHT WELL, I'LL GO TO DAVE AND HE'S GOING
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:05.120
  • TO TELL ME NO, THERE'S NO WAY WE CAN DO THIS.
  • 00:10:05.140 --> 00:10:07.120
  • [LAUGHTER] AND WILL BE MY OUT.
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:09.150
  • DAVE WILL TELL ME NO, AND YOU KNOW HOW SUBMISSIVE I
  • 00:10:09.170 --> 00:10:11.220
  • AM WHEN I WANT TO BE.
  • 00:10:11.240 --> 00:10:13.200
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:15.050
  • - IT WORKS WELL IN SUCH OCCASIONS.
  • 00:10:15.070 --> 00:10:17.090
  • - I WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE THAN HAPPY TO SUBMIT TO
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:19.140
  • THAT, BUT DAVE, HE SAID WELL, IF THAT'S WHAT GOD
  • 00:10:19.160 --> 00:10:23.180
  • TOLD YOU TO DO YOU BETTER DO IT.
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:25.100
  • I THOUGHT, OH.
  • 00:10:25.120 --> 00:10:27.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:29.030
  • SO THEN I THOUGHT WELL, WE'RE GOING TO BUY THEM
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:31.000
  • LIKE A, I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE A MOBILE HOME OR
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:34.120
  • JUST NOT ANYTHING -- JUST ANYTHING JUST TO
  • 00:10:34.140 --> 00:10:38.110
  • GET A MINUTE.
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:40.070
  • THE LORD SAID NO, YOU'RE GOING TO BUY THEM A NICE
  • 00:10:40.090 --> 00:10:42.200
  • HOUSE, AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE TO IT THEY'RE
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:45.070
  • TAKEN CARE OF.
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:47.210
  • AND WHEN THEY FIRST MOVED TO OUR CITY, THEY COULD
  • 00:10:47.230 --> 00:10:51.130
  • STILL MANAGE ON THEIR OWN, BUT THEY NEEDED HELP
  • 00:10:51.150 --> 00:10:55.010
  • GETTING THEIR GROCERIES, NEEDED THE LAWN CUT, THEY
  • 00:10:55.030 --> 00:10:57.270
  • NEEDED ALL THESE THINGS THAT COST MONEY THEY
  • 00:10:57.290 --> 00:10:59.190
  • DIDN'T HAVE.
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:01.260
  • SO THE WHOLE THING WAS A BIG EXPENDITURE TOO, AND
  • 00:11:01.280 --> 00:11:04.270
  • THEN WHEN PEOPLE ARE ELDERLY LIKE THAT YOU
  • 00:11:04.290 --> 00:11:06.280
  • NEVER KNOW WHEN THEY'RE GOING TO NEED YOU, BUT
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:08.260
  • WHENEVER THEY'RE GOING TO NEED YOU, YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:11:08.280 --> 00:11:11.120
  • READY TO HELP THEM.
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:13.150
  • SO IT WAS THREE YEARS ALMOST SINCE WE BOUGHT
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:20.070
  • THEM THE HOUSE, AND MY MOTHER CALLED ONE DAY AND
  • 00:11:20.090 --> 00:11:23.140
  • SAID YOUR DAD HAS BEEN CRYING ALL WEEK AND HE
  • 00:11:23.160 --> 00:11:25.040
  • WANTS TO TALK TO YOU.
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:27.040
  • NOW, KEEP IN MIND HE HAD NEVER APOLOGIZED TO ME
  • 00:11:27.060 --> 00:11:29.070
  • FOR WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:11:29.090 --> 00:11:31.270
  • NEVER.
  • 00:11:31.290 --> 00:11:33.160
  • AND SO I WENT OVER AND I SAID, WHAT'S WRONG?
  • 00:11:33.180 --> 00:11:38.060
  • WHAT ARE YOU CRYING ABOUT?
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:40.030
  • AND SO THEN HE SAID I NEED TO TELL YOU THAT I'M
  • 00:11:40.050 --> 00:11:42.290
  • SORRY FOR WHAT I DID TO YOU WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD.
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:46.170
  • AND HE LOOKED AT DAVE, AND HE SAID, TOLD HIM HE
  • 00:11:46.190 --> 00:11:49.280
  • WAS SORRY, TOO.
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:51.240
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW DAVE KNEW IT, AND HE SAID MOST MEN
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:54.020
  • WOULD HAVE KNOCKED MY HEAD OFF, BUT ALL YOU
  • 00:11:54.040 --> 00:11:58.080
  • EVER DO WAS BE KIND TO ME.
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:12:01.050
  • SO I ASKED HIM THAT DAY IF HE'D LIKE US TO PRAY
  • 00:12:01.070 --> 00:12:04.260
  • WITH HIM FOR SALVATION, AND HE SAID YES.
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:08.050
  • AND THEN HE ASKED IF I WOULD BAPTIZE, IF WE'D
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:10.230
  • BAPTIZE HIM.
  • 00:12:10.250 --> 00:12:12.210
  • SO TEN DAYS LATER WE BAPTIZED IN THE CHURCH WE
  • 00:12:12.230 --> 00:12:15.040
  • HAVE IN ST. LOUIS, CHURCH IN THE INNER CITY.
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:18.100
  • IT'S AN OUTREACH CHURCH, AND I'LL NEVER FORGET
  • 00:12:18.120 --> 00:12:21.100
  • WHEN HE CAME UP OUT OF THE BAPTISMAL THING AND
  • 00:12:21.120 --> 00:12:23.090
  • HE WALKED ACROSS THE FRONT, HE LIFTED BOTH HIS
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:25.040
  • HANDS, SAID, PRAISE THE LORD!
  • 00:12:25.060 --> 00:12:28.070
  • AND HE WAS ON A WALK, PRAISE THE LORD ON HIS
  • 00:12:28.090 --> 00:12:30.030
  • WALKER, PRAISE THE LORD!
  • 00:12:30.050 --> 00:12:32.240
  • SO I SAY IT LIKE THIS AND I DON'T MEAN IT TO SOUND
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:35.110
  • WRONG, BUT I THOUGHT I WAS BUYING A HOUSE BUT
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:37.190
  • REALLY I WAS BUYING A SOUL.
  • 00:12:37.210 --> 00:12:39.130
  • - WOW.
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:41.080
  • - AND NOT THAT YOU CAN BUY SOMEBODY'S SOUL, BUT
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:43.020
  • IT MAY COST YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:46.020
  • YOU KNOW, IF THERE'S SOMEBODY IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:12:46.040 --> 00:12:48.210
  • THAT'S REALLY HURT YOU, SHOWING THEM LOVE IS
  • 00:12:48.230 --> 00:12:51.150
  • SOMETHING THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:12:51.170 --> 00:12:53.240
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS LOVE NEVER FAILS, SO LOVE IS
  • 00:12:53.260 --> 00:12:56.070
  • SPIRITUAL WARFARE, AND IT'S ONE OF MY CHAPTERS
  • 00:12:56.090 --> 00:13:00.170
  • IN THE BOOK AND IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE MESSAGES
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:03.170

  • BATTLEFIELD IS YOUR GREATEST PLACE OF
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:06.260
  • BLESSING BECAUSE EVEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT THERE'S
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:09.170
  • STORY AFTER STORY AFTER STORY THAT WHEN THEY
  • 00:17:09.190 --> 00:17:13.160
  • FOUGHT THE BATTLE AND THEY DID IT GOD'S WAY
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:15.230
  • THEY TOOK THE PLUNDER.
  • 00:17:15.250 --> 00:17:17.190
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:17:17.210 --> 00:17:19.050
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE THAT, THAT IF YOU
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:22.270
  • TURN THOSE THINGS OVER TO GOD, WHAT SATAN DID MEAN
  • 00:17:22.290 --> 00:17:25.290
  • FOR HARM GOD WILL WORK OUT FOR GOOD.
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:30.130
  • AND I KNOW WE HEAR THIS SCRIPTURE ALL THE TIME,
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:32.260
  • BUT I'VE LIVED LONG ENOUGH TO TELL YOU THAT I
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.240
  • KNOW BY EXPERIENCE AND THE WORD OF GOD THAT IT'S
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:36.180
  • TRUE, ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER.
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:43.030
  • YOU KNOW, THE ONE THING MAY NOT BE GOOD, BUT IF
  • 00:17:43.050 --> 00:17:46.240
  • YOU'LL TURN THAT OVER TO GOD AND REFUSE TO FEEL
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:52.040
  • SORRY FOR YOURSELF, HAVE A GOOD ATTITUDE AND GIVE
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:55.140
  • YOUR PROBLEM TO GOD WHILE YOU STAY BUSY HELPING
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:58.090
  • OTHER PEOPLE, THEN GOD CAN TAKE ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:18:01.280
  • ANYTHING AND SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER HE CAN WORK IT
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:05.070
  • OUT FOR YOUR GOOD.
  • 00:18:05.090 --> 00:18:08.110
  • HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT SOMETIMES WHEN
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:10.090
  • YOU'RE HURTING REAL BAD OR HAVING A PROBLEM THAT
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:12.260
  • NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU CAN'T HELP YOURSELF?
  • 00:18:12.280 --> 00:18:16.030
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME GOD WILL ANOINT YOU TO HELP
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:18.070
  • SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:18:18.090 --> 00:18:19.240
  • - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:18:19.260 --> 00:18:21.150
  • - DO YOU EVER WONDER WHY THAT IS?
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:23.020
  • - NO. YES.
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:24.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:24.140 --> 00:18:26.050
  • - WHAT IS IT, YES OR NO?
  • 00:18:26.070 --> 00:18:27.090
  • - YES, I HAVE.
  • 00:18:27.110 --> 00:18:28.240
  • - HE HAS.
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.100
  • - FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:30.120 --> 00:18:31.210
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:33.020
  • - YOU KNOW, IT'S BECAUSE GOD DOESN'T REALLY WANT
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:35.220
  • US FIXING OUR OWN PROBLEMS.
  • 00:18:35.240 --> 00:18:37.260
  • HE WANTS US TO TURN OUR PROBLEMS OVER TO HIM
  • 00:18:37.280 --> 00:18:40.030
  • WHILE WE HELP SOMEBODY ELSE, AND THE HELP WE
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:44.190
  • GIVE OTHER PEOPLE IS THE SEED WE SOW THEN FOR THE
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:47.180
  • HARVEST THAT WE NEED FROM GOD.
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:50.260
  • AND PSALM 37: 3, IT SAYS, THIS HAS BEEN REALLY
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:57.040
  • IMPORTANT TO ME, TRUST IN THE LORD AND DO GOOD AND
  • 00:18:57.060 --> 00:19:01.230
  • SO SHALL YOU BE FED.
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:04.170
  • AND WE MISS THE DO GOOD.
  • 00:19:04.190 --> 00:19:08.270
  • TRUST IN THE LORD AND DO GOOD, SO I JUST SEE THAT
  • 00:19:08.290 --> 00:19:12.120
  • SO PLAINLY NOW.
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:14.110
  • IT'S LIKE YOU KNOW, WHEN I'M IN TROUBLE, ALL I'D
  • 00:19:14.130 --> 00:19:17.280
  • REALLY HAVE TO DO IS TAKE MY OWN ADVICE.
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:20.180
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:19:20.200 --> 00:19:23.020
  • DON'T YOU HATE IT.
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:24.280
  • - BUT IT SEEMS LIKE I CAN'T GET IT TO WORK FOR
  • 00:19:25.000 --> 00:19:26.270
  • ME, YOU KNOW, AT THE TIME.
  • 00:19:26.290 --> 00:19:29.030
  • BUT I CAN GO TELL IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE AND THEY'LL
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:31.070
  • GO OH, THAT'S A WORD FROM GOD.
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:33.090
  • THAT'S EXACTLY THE WORD THAT I NEEDED.
  • 00:19:33.110 --> 00:19:35.190
  • SO I THINK IF WE REMEMBER THAT, THAT GOD WANTS TO
  • 00:19:35.210 --> 00:19:38.200
  • FIGHT OUR BATTLES, AND THERE IS A WARFARE THAT
  • 00:19:38.220 --> 00:19:43.030
  • WE DO, BUT IT'S NOT JUST SCREAMING AT THE ENEMY
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:45.230
  • ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:47.160
  • FIRST OF ALL, THE FIRST CHAPTER IN THIS BOOK IS
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:49.170
  • GETTING TO KNOW YOUR ENEMY.
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:52.020
  • DO WE EVEN, DO WE EVEN KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT -- I
  • 00:19:52.040 --> 00:19:54.250
  • DON'T THINK THERE'S ENOUGH PREACHING ON THE
  • 00:19:54.270 --> 00:19:56.090
  • DEVIL NOW.
  • 00:19:56.110 --> 00:19:58.010
  • FOR A PERIOD OF TIME IN THE CHURCH, THERE WAS WAY
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:19:59.170
  • TOO MUCH AND PEOPLE GOT TOO SPIRITUAL WARFARE
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:03.050
  • MINDED, AND THAT WAS ALL THEY THOUGHT ABOUT OR
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:05.160
  • TALKED ABOUT.
  • 00:20:05.180 --> 00:20:07.110
  • WE DON'T NEED TO GLORIFY THE DEVIL BY TALKING
  • 00:20:07.130 --> 00:20:09.070
  • ABOUT WHAT HE'S DOING ALL THE TIME BECAUSE GOD IS
  • 00:20:09.090 --> 00:20:11.060
  • DOING A LOT MORE THAN HE IS, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:13.210
  • RECOGNIZE WHEN HE'S AT WORK.
  • 00:20:13.230 --> 00:20:17.220
  • I'LL TELL YOU A FUNNY STORY FROM THIS MORNING.
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:19.270
  • I GOT UP THIS MORNING AND MY E-MAIL WOULDN'T WORK
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:22.260
  • ON MY PHONE, AND I KEPT GETTING THIS MESSAGE THAT
  • 00:20:22.280 --> 00:20:25.110
  • I HAD TO HAVE SOME KIND OF A PASSWORD.
  • 00:20:25.130 --> 00:20:28.280
  • I DON'T HAVE THESE THINGS, SO NOW WE'RE
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:32.180
  • TRYING TO FIND OUT WHO HAS THE PASSWORD, AND THE
  • 00:20:32.200 --> 00:20:34.290
  • ONE PERSON WHO HAS THE PASSWORD WE CAN'T GET
  • 00:20:35.010 --> 00:20:37.090
  • HOLD OF, SO BOTTOM LINE IS I'M TRYING TO GET THIS
  • 00:20:37.110 --> 00:20:40.260
  • PHONE FIXED THE WHOLE TIME THAT I'M COMING
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:43.190
  • HERE, AND I'M TRYING TO FOLLOW MY OWN ADVICE AND
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:46.100
  • DO THE WARFARE OF REST AND NOT GET BOTHERED
  • 00:20:46.120 --> 00:20:49.090
  • ABOUT IT, BUT OF ALL THE WARNINGS WHEN THAT WOULD
  • 00:20:49.110 --> 00:20:54.110
  • HAPPEN, AND YOU KNOW WHEN IT GOT FIXED, WHEN I GOT
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:21:00.270
  • ON THE GROUND HERE, IT FIXED.
  • 00:21:00.290 --> 00:21:04.260
  • BUT FOR LIKE ALL THE WAY COMING BEFORE I LEFT MY
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:10.100
  • HOUSE FOR THE AIRPORT, THE DEVIL JUST WANTS TO
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:12.210
  • AGGRAVATE US.
  • 00:21:12.230 --> 00:21:15.170
  • HE WANTS TO GET US IRRITATED AND UPSET AND
  • 00:21:15.190 --> 00:21:17.240
  • AGGRAVATED, SO ONE OF THE WAYS THAT THE THINGS WE
  • 00:21:17.260 --> 00:21:21.030
  • REALLY NEED TO DO IS GET TO KNOW THE ENEMY.
  • 00:21:21.050 --> 00:21:24.070
  • WHEN THE DEVIL WAS TRYING TO USE PETER TO KEEP
  • 00:21:24.090 --> 00:21:29.130
  • JESUS FROM HIS SUFFERING AND HE SAID OH NO, LORD.
  • 00:21:29.150 --> 00:21:37.080
  • THIS MUST NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU, WHEN JESUS WAS
  • 00:21:37.100 --> 00:21:39.080
  • TRYING TO TELL HIM WHAT HE WAS GETTING READY TO
  • 00:21:39.100 --> 00:21:40.270
  • GO THROUGH.
  • 00:21:40.290 --> 00:21:42.230
  • AND HE LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID, GET BEHIND ME, SATAN.
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:46.130
  • YOU'RE AN OFFENSE AND A HINDRANCE AND YOU'RE IN MY WAY.
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:51.220
  • SO HERE HE RECOGNIZED THAT IT WASN'T PETER THAT
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:56.290
  • WAS TRYING TO KEEP HIM FROM GOING TO THE CROSS,
  • 00:21:57.010 --> 00:21:58.260
  • BUT IT WAS THE DEVIL WORKING THROUGH
  • 00:21:58.280 --> 00:22:00.170
  • PETER'S WEAKNESS.
  • 00:22:00.190 --> 00:22:03.190
  • AND I THINK THE ENEMY KNOWS EVERYBODY'S
  • 00:22:03.210 --> 00:22:06.080
  • WEAKNESSES, INCLUDING OUR OWN, BETTER THAN WE KNOW
  • 00:22:06.100 --> 00:22:08.160
  • THEM OURSELVES.
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:10.130
  • SO KNOWING YOURSELF A LITTLE BIT BETTER IS VERY
  • 00:22:10.150 --> 00:22:12.240
  • HELPFUL, AND REALIZING THAT THE ENEMY IS GOING
  • 00:22:12.260 --> 00:22:16.140
  • TO WORK THROUGH PEOPLE, AND THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:22:16.160 --> 00:22:19.000
  • PEOPLE DON'T HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE
  • 00:22:19.020 --> 00:22:20.290
  • AND THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE CAN'T TALK TO THEM ABOUT
  • 00:22:21.010 --> 00:22:24.020
  • THE THINGS THEY DO TO HURT US, BUT IN OUR
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:26.080
  • PRAYERS WE NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THE
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:29.110
  • ENEMY, AND LET HIM KNOW WE RECOGNIZE WHAT HE'S
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:32.040
  • TRYING TO DO, BECAUSE HE LIKES NOTHING BETTER THAN
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:35.060
  • FOR US TO BLAME EVERYTHING ON PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:35.080 --> 00:22:38.020
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:22:38.040 --> 00:22:39.260
  • - WE'RE TALKING ABOUT YOUR BATTLES BELONG TO
  • 00:22:39.280 --> 00:22:41.070
  • THE LORD.
  • 00:22:41.090 --> 00:22:42.170
  • JOYCE MEYER.
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:44.140
  • I HAVE -- YOUR BOOK ON THE SUBJECT OF SPIRITUAL
  • 00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:49.280
  • WARFARE, WE'LL USE THAT TERM ALTHOUGH THAT TERM,
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:54.280
  • YOU KNOW, HAS SUCH CONNOTATIONS, NEGATIVE
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:58.200
  • PROBABLY CONNOTATIONS THAT WE WE'RE USING THAT
  • 00:22:58.220 --> 00:23:01.270
  • TERM KIND OF LOOSELY HERE FOR TIME'S SAKE.
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:06.100
  • BUT THERE'S -- YOU KNOW, WHAT I ULTIMATELY THINK
  • 00:23:06.120 --> 00:23:11.060
  • CONTEXTUALLY, LIKE WHAT I LOVE ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:23:11.080 --> 00:23:15.000
  • TEACHING AND MY UNDERSTANDING, YOUR
  • 00:23:15.020 --> 00:23:17.170
  • NUMBER ONE SELLING BOOK PROBABLY PRIOR TO THIS
  • 00:23:17.190 --> 00:23:20.170
  • ONE WAS BATTLEFIELD OF THE MIND WHERE YOU WERE
  • 00:23:20.190 --> 00:23:23.040
  • TALKING ABOUT HOW THE WARFARE IS REALLY AN
  • 00:23:23.060 --> 00:23:25.270
  • INTERNAL THING.
  • 00:23:25.290 --> 00:23:27.210
  • SO SO FAR YOU'VE SAID LOVE IS WARFARE.
  • 00:23:27.230 --> 00:23:30.060
  • AND OBEDIENCE AND THOSE TYPES OF WORDS THAT
  • 00:23:30.080 --> 00:23:34.050
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT ARE REALLY WHAT WARFARE IS.
  • 00:23:34.070 --> 00:23:37.120
  • YOU JUST MENTIONED A MINUTE AGO, YOU SAID I
  • 00:23:37.140 --> 00:23:41.240
  • STARTED STUDYING WHAT JESUS DID IN REGARD TO
  • 00:23:41.260 --> 00:23:45.030
  • WARFARE, AND SO IF YOU TAKE THE -- IF YOU ZOOM OUT
  • 00:23:45.050 --> 00:23:49.190
  • AND KIND OF WHAT TO SEE THE MEN LIKE CONTEXT,
  • 00:23:49.210 --> 00:23:53.220
  • WOMEN CAN START THE MIDDLE OF THE SUBJECT AND
  • 00:23:53.240 --> 00:23:55.290
  • WORK THEIR WAY TO THE ENDS, BUT CONTEXTUALLY
  • 00:23:56.010 --> 00:23:59.040
  • WHAT I THINK JESUS SAID ULTIMATELY AS HE WAS
  • 00:23:59.060 --> 00:24:02.090
  • ASCENDING, ALL POWER HAS BEEN GIVEN UNTO ME IN
  • 00:24:02.110 --> 00:24:06.020
  • HEAVEN AND ON EARTH.
  • 00:24:06.040 --> 00:24:07.210
  • WELL, I'M ON EARTH, OKAY.
  • 00:24:07.230 --> 00:24:09.250
  • SO THAT APPLIES TO WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:24:09.270 --> 00:24:12.260
  • AND THEREFORE GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND DO YOUR
  • 00:24:12.280 --> 00:24:15.250
  • THING, AND LO, I'LL BE WITH YOU THROUGH THE END
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:17.250
  • OF THE AGE.
  • 00:24:17.270 --> 00:24:19.150
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:24:19.170 --> 00:24:21.010
  • SO IF HE HAS ALL POWER, THAT MEANS THE DEVIL HAS
  • 00:24:21.030 --> 00:24:22.140
  • NO POWER BECAUSE JESUS HAS IT ALL.
  • 00:24:22.160 --> 00:24:24.150
  • HE DELEGATES THAT TO US, SO THE ULTIMATE QUESTION
  • 00:24:24.170 --> 00:24:28.080
  • IS HOW DOES THE ENEMY GET ANYTHING DONE IF
  • 00:24:28.100 --> 00:24:32.180
  • BELIEVERS HAVE ALL POWER RESIDING IN THEM?
  • 00:24:32.200 --> 00:24:36.220
  • THAT'S REALLY WHAT THE DISCUSSION OF THIS BOOK IS.
  • 00:24:36.240 --> 00:24:39.060
  • AND YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT LOVE AND PATIENCE AND ALL
  • 00:24:39.080 --> 00:24:41.250
  • THIS, PEACE AND REST.
  • 00:24:41.270 --> 00:24:44.040
  • - AND REST.
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:46.070
  • I MEAN, IF YOU THINK OF JESUS IF YOU COULD GIVE
  • 00:24:46.090 --> 00:24:49.020
  • ONE WORD THAT YOU WOULD SAY DEFINES WHAT HE LOOKS
  • 00:24:49.040 --> 00:24:54.060
  • LIKE, YOU'D HAVE TO SAY RESTED.
  • 00:24:54.080 --> 00:25:00.040
  • HE NEVER GOT RATTLED.
  • 00:25:00.060 --> 00:25:02.220
  • NEVER GOT UPSET.
  • 00:25:02.240 --> 00:25:05.050
  • I MEAN, IN THE TEMPLE HE CHASED OUT THE MONEY
  • 00:25:05.070 --> 00:25:08.280
  • CHANGERS, SO THERE IS A RIGHTEOUS ANGER, BUT HE
  • 00:25:09.000 --> 00:25:12.130
  • ALWAYS STAYED IN REST, AND YOU KNOW HOW LITTLE
  • 00:25:12.150 --> 00:25:17.050
  • OF THAT PEOPLE HAVE IN THE DAYS THAT WE LIVE IN?
  • 00:25:17.070 --> 00:25:23.160
  • AND THE KIND OF REST THAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT IS
  • 00:25:23.180 --> 00:25:26.090
  • NOT LAYING DOWN AND TAKING A NAP.
  • 00:25:26.110 --> 00:25:27.270
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:25:27.290 --> 00:25:30.020
  • - IT'S -- PEOPLE CAN GO ON VACATION AND WORRY THAT
  • 00:25:30.040 --> 00:25:34.150
  • THEY PLANNED TO SPEND THEIR VACATION TIME TO
  • 00:25:34.170 --> 00:25:37.210
  • FIGURE OUT THEIR PROBLEMS.
  • 00:25:37.230 --> 00:25:39.230
  • - WOW.
  • 00:25:39.250 --> 00:25:41.280
  • - I'M GOING TO BE ON VACATION SOON, AND I'LL
  • 00:25:42.000 --> 00:25:43.270
  • HAVE TIME TO FIGURE THIS OUT.
  • 00:25:43.290 --> 00:25:46.130
  • I'LL HAVE TIME TO THINK THIS OVER.
  • 00:25:46.150 --> 00:25:49.000
  • AND I'VE SHARED A COUPLE OF TIMES, NOT TOO
  • 00:25:49.020 --> 00:25:53.000
  • PUBLICLY YET BUT TWO YEARS AGO IN DECEMBER I
  • 00:25:53.020 --> 00:25:58.000
  • GOT VERY VERY SICK, AND I WON'T GET INTO ALL THE
  • 00:25:58.020 --> 00:26:02.230
  • DETAILS, BUT TURNS OUT IT WAS JUST THE RESULT OF
  • 00:26:02.250 --> 00:26:08.100
  • LONG TERM WORKING TOO HARD, AND STRESS IS NOT
  • 00:26:08.120 --> 00:26:13.150
  • ALWAYS NOT BEING ABLE TO HANDLE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:26:13.170 --> 00:26:16.080
  • IT'S JUST TRYING TO DO MORE THAN WHAT ANY SANE
  • 00:26:16.100 --> 00:26:21.000
  • PERSON COULD DO.
  • 00:26:21.020 --> 00:26:22.290
  • AND THE THING THAT I DISCOVERED THAT WAS
  • 00:26:23.010 --> 00:26:25.260
  • REALLY HELPFUL TO ME, AND THIS IS GOOD FOR
  • 00:26:25.280 --> 00:26:28.190
  • EVERYBODY TO REMEMBER, ONLY A FOOL THINKS THEY
  • 00:26:28.210 --> 00:26:31.100
  • CAN ALWAYS DO WHAT THEY'VE ALWAYS DONE.
  • 00:26:31.120 --> 00:26:33.040
  • - WOW. WOW.
  • 00:26:33.060 --> 00:26:35.200
  • - SEE?
  • 00:26:35.220 --> 00:26:37.220
  • - WHAT?
  • 00:26:37.240 --> 00:26:39.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:26:39.070 --> 00:26:40.250
  • GOOD LORD.
  • 00:26:40.270 --> 00:26:42.250
  • YOU SWUNG YOUR HEAD OVER PRETTY QUICK TO ME.
  • 00:26:42.270 --> 00:26:44.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:26:44.290 --> 00:26:47.150
  • - WELL, SEE WHAT I CAN DO, I MEAN, OH MAN,
  • 00:26:47.170 --> 00:26:49.280
  • I'M A WORKER.
  • 00:26:50.000 --> 00:26:51.180
  • I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A WORKER.
  • 00:26:51.200 --> 00:26:53.220
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE WRITTEN ABOUT 135 BOOKS, SO WE'D
  • 00:26:53.240 --> 00:26:56.010
  • BE ON VACATION, DAVE WOULD BE OUT PLAYING
  • 00:26:56.030 --> 00:26:58.250
  • GOLF, AND I'D WRITE A BOOK.
  • 00:26:58.270 --> 00:27:00.270
  • AND I HAD A LOT OF RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:27:00.290 --> 00:27:05.010
  • I HAD A BIG VISION.
  • 00:27:05.030 --> 00:27:06.170
  • I HAD A BIG DREAM, AND I WAS A WORKER AND VERY
  • 00:27:06.190 --> 00:27:09.290
  • RESPONSIBLE, AND GOD ANOINTED ME AND GAVE ME
  • 00:27:10.010 --> 00:27:14.230
  • THE GRACE IN THE BEGINNING DAYS OF THE
  • 00:27:14.250 --> 00:27:17.090
  • MINISTRY TO DO THAT BECAUSE IN THE BEGINNING
  • 00:27:17.110 --> 00:27:20.270
  • WE GOT THE MAIL -- I REMEMBER SITTING AT MY
  • 00:27:20.290 --> 00:27:23.120
  • LITTLE TYPEWRITER ANSWERING MY 2 OR 3
  • 00:27:23.140 --> 00:27:25.010
  • PIECES OF MAIL THAT CAME IN, PRAYING MY GUTS OUT
  • 00:27:25.030 --> 00:27:29.170
  • THAT THERE WOULD BE SOME MONEY IN ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:27:29.190 --> 00:27:31.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:27:31.040 --> 00:27:32.270
  • BUT AS I GOT OLDER, GOD DIDN'T REALLY WANT ME
  • 00:27:32.290 --> 00:27:39.210
  • DOING THAT ANYMORE.
  • 00:27:39.230 --> 00:27:41.160
  • THAT SEASON WAS OVER IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:27:41.180 --> 00:27:43.250
  • I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THAT ANYMORE BECAUSE I HAD
  • 00:27:43.270 --> 00:27:46.020
  • OTHER PEOPLE THAT I COULD LET DO SOME OF
  • 00:27:46.040 --> 00:27:50.240
  • THE THINGS.
  • 00:27:50.260 --> 00:27:52.000
  • AND I REALLY HAD TO LEARN TO SAY NO.
  • 00:27:52.020 --> 00:27:56.070
  • I REALLY HAD TO LEARN WHAT I COULD DO AND I'M
  • 00:27:56.090 --> 00:28:01.000
  • IN A POSITION NOW WHERE I CAN WRITE MY BOOKS, I CAN
  • 00:28:01.020 --> 00:28:05.230
  • PRAY, I CAN STUDY, I CAN PUT MY MESSAGES TOGETHER,
  • 00:28:05.250 --> 00:28:09.120
  • I CAN DO MY TV, I CAN COME AND DO THINGS LIKE
  • 00:28:09.140 --> 00:28:11.230
  • THIS, BUT I MEAN AS YOU KNOW YOU JUST ASKED ME TO
  • 00:28:11.250 --> 00:28:16.070
  • DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:28:16.090 --> 00:28:17.130
  • - YES, I DID.
  • 00:28:17.150 --> 00:28:18.240
  • - BEFORE WE CAME HERE AND I SAID I CAN'T.
  • 00:28:18.260 --> 00:28:21.080
  • I CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE IT WAS SOMETHING RIGHT
  • 00:28:21.100 --> 00:28:23.090
  • BEFORE A CONFERENCE, AND I'VE LEARNED THAT I'VE
  • 00:28:23.110 --> 00:28:26.120
  • PUT OUT A LOT OF ENERGY IN MY CONFERENCES, AND I
  • 00:28:26.140 --> 00:28:28.200
  • NEED TO REST BEFORE HIM AND AFTER THEM.
  • 00:28:28.220 --> 00:28:32.060
  • - COME ON, BUNGEE JUMPING IS NOT THAT HARD!
  • 00:28:32.080 --> 00:28:34.150
  • WE JUST WANT TO GO BUNGEE JUMPING WITH YOU.
  • 00:28:34.170 --> 00:28:36.140
  • - VACATION A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:28:36.160 --> 00:28:38.070
  • - AND SO I HAD TO MAKE SOME BIG CHANGES IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:28:38.090 --> 00:28:43.180
  • WELL, DID THE DEVIL MAKE ME SICK?
  • 00:28:43.200 --> 00:28:48.190
  • WELL, GOD DOESN'T GO AROUND MAKING PEOPLE SICK,
  • 00:28:48.210 --> 00:28:50.180
  • BUT I WAS OPENING THE DOOR THROUGH LACK OF WISDOM.
  • 00:28:50.200 --> 00:28:59.120
  • AND SEE, THAT'S THE THING THAT WE DON'T LIKE TO
  • 00:28:59.140 --> 00:29:01.080
  • LOOK AT A LOT OF TIMES.
  • 00:29:01.100 --> 00:29:02.170
  • LIKE ONE OF THESE CHAPTERS, CHAPTER 2 IS
  • 00:29:02.190 --> 00:29:04.170
  • CALLED DO ALL THE CRISIS DEMANDS.
  • 00:29:04.190 --> 00:29:07.130
  • AND ACTUALLY IN THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE IN
  • 00:29:07.150 --> 00:29:10.030
  • EPHESIANS 6, IT SAYS DO ALL THAT CRISIS DEMANDS
  • 00:29:10.050 --> 00:29:14.080
  • AND THEN STAND. AND SO GOD WILL FIGHT OUR BATTLES,
  • 00:29:14.100 --> 00:29:22.010
  • HE HAS TO. WE CAN'T WIN. WE CAN'T WIN THEM.
  • 00:29:22.030 --> 00:29:26.200
  • BUT THERE MAY BE SOME THINGS THAT WE NEED TO
  • 00:29:26.220 --> 00:29:29.090
  • REALIZE IT'S NOT ALWAYS, NOT ALWAYS IS THERE
  • 00:29:29.110 --> 00:29:33.100
  • SOMETHING THAT YOU'VE DONE, BUT THE FIRST THING
  • 00:29:33.120 --> 00:29:37.140
  • THAT I ALWAYS ASK GOD WHEN THERE'S BIG TROUBLE
  • 00:29:37.160 --> 00:29:39.200
  • IS IS THERE SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT ME TO DO
  • 00:29:39.220 --> 00:29:41.220
  • THAT I'M NOT DOING? IS THERE SOMETHING THAT--
  • 00:29:41.240 --> 00:29:45.060
  • - LAURIE: I DID?
  • 00:29:45.080 --> 00:29:46.180
  • - THAT I DID THAT YOU DON'T WANT ME TO DO?
  • 00:29:46.200 --> 00:29:49.080
  • SOMETIMES IT'S JUST STAND OR REST IN ME, BUT
  • 00:29:49.100 --> 00:29:54.220
  • THERE'S BEEN TIMES WHEN THE ANSWERS HAVE BEEN
  • 00:29:54.240 --> 00:29:56.220
  • VERY PRACTICAL THINGS LIKE I HAD TO STOP TRYING
  • 00:29:56.240 --> 00:30:04.150
  • TO BE THE 35 YEAR OLD JOYCE MEYER.
  • 00:30:04.170 --> 00:30:08.190
  • I COULDN'T KEEP DOING THAT.
  • 00:30:08.210 --> 00:30:11.200
  • AND YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU TELL PEOPLE NO, LIKE YOU
  • 00:30:11.220 --> 00:30:13.210
  • GUYS WERE SO SUPER GRACIOUS IT WAS
  • 00:30:13.230 --> 00:30:15.280
  • WONDERFUL, BUT MOST PEOPLE IF THEY WANT TO
  • 00:30:16.000 --> 00:30:19.130
  • HEAR YES AND YOU TELL THEM NO, THEY DON'T LIKE IT.
  • 00:30:19.150 --> 00:30:23.240
  • SO YOU HAVE TO GET READY TO MAYBE OFFEND SOME
  • 00:30:23.260 --> 00:30:29.030
  • PEOPLE, MAYBE MAKE SOME PEOPLE MAD.
  • 00:30:29.050 --> 00:30:32.250
  • I'M THINKING ABOUT ANOTHER SITUATION THAT
  • 00:30:32.270 --> 00:30:34.210
  • IS AN EXAMPLE FROM DAVE'S LIFE.
  • 00:30:34.230 --> 00:30:37.000
  • HE WAS HAVING WHAT HE CALLS THE YIPS.
  • 00:30:37.020 --> 00:30:39.120
  • I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THAT IS YET,
  • 00:30:39.140 --> 00:30:41.100
  • BUT HE GETS THAT REAL NERVOUSY FEELING INSIDE,
  • 00:30:41.120 --> 00:30:44.250
  • AND DAVE IS A MAN OF PEACE.
  • 00:30:44.270 --> 00:30:46.150
  • HE DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANY KIND OF
  • 00:30:46.170 --> 00:30:48.020
  • NERVES, NOT MINE OR HIS OR ANYBODY ELSE'S.
  • 00:30:48.040 --> 00:30:50.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:50.140 --> 00:30:53.250
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS CAUSING IT.
  • 00:30:53.270 --> 00:30:55.110
  • AND HE'D GET THIS EVERY NIGHT AND IT WAS
  • 00:30:55.130 --> 00:30:56.270
  • REALLY BOTHERING HIM.
  • 00:30:56.290 --> 00:30:58.240
  • AND WHEN HE PRAYED TO GOD ABOUT IT, GOD SHOWED HIM
  • 00:30:58.260 --> 00:31:01.080
  • THAT HE WAS DRINKING A CERTAIN SODA THAT HAD A
  • 00:31:01.100 --> 00:31:06.150
  • LOT OF CAFFEINE IN IT, AND HE'D GO BY THIS
  • 00:31:06.170 --> 00:31:08.260
  • DRIVE-THRU RESTAURANT AND GET A 32 OUNCE ONE EVERY
  • 00:31:08.280 --> 00:31:11.120
  • DAY AND IT WAS TOO MUCH CAFFEINE.
  • 00:31:11.140 --> 00:31:15.040
  • AND SO HE DOES NOT HAVE DIABETES, BUT SUGAR DOES
  • 00:31:15.060 --> 00:31:19.010
  • THE SAME THING TO HIM NOW.
  • 00:31:19.030 --> 00:31:20.290
  • AND DAVE COULD EAT SWEETS ALL OF HIS LIFE, BUT HE
  • 00:31:21.010 --> 00:31:24.000
  • CANNOT EAT SUGAR EXCEPT RARELY ONCE IN A WHILE,
  • 00:31:24.020 --> 00:31:27.140
  • AND HE CAN'T DRINK MUCH CAFFEINE.
  • 00:31:27.160 --> 00:31:30.030
  • HE DRINKS A LITTLE BUT HE CAN'T DRINK MUCH.
  • 00:31:30.050 --> 00:31:32.040
  • WELL HE HAD A PROBLEM, GOD HEAL ME, BUT IN
  • 00:31:32.060 --> 00:31:37.270
  • THAT CASE THERE WAS SOMETHING GOD
  • 00:31:37.290 --> 00:31:39.240
  • NEEDED TO SHOW HIM.
  • 00:31:39.260 --> 00:31:41.030
  • AND JUST ONE MORE EXAMPLE THEN WE CAN GO ONTO
  • 00:31:41.050 --> 00:31:43.070
  • SOMETHING ELSE, MY ASSISTANT WHO IS WITH US
  • 00:31:43.090 --> 00:31:46.280
  • HERE, SHE HAD DEBILITATING MIGRAINE
  • 00:31:47.000 --> 00:31:49.220
  • HEADACHES FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS, I MEAN
  • 00:31:49.240 --> 00:31:52.210
  • REALLY BAD HEADACHES, AND WAS ON MEDICINES, SOUGHT
  • 00:31:52.230 --> 00:31:58.100
  • DOCTORS, EVERYTHING, STILL HAD THESE BAD HEADACHES.
  • 00:31:58.120 --> 00:32:02.080
  • SHE HAD A HEADACHE BASICALLY ALMOST EVERY
  • 00:32:02.100 --> 00:32:03.180
  • SINGLE DAY OF HER LIFE.
  • 00:32:03.200 --> 00:32:08.090
  • DID YOU GO OFF OF THE SWEETENER FOR THE
  • 00:32:08.110 --> 00:32:11.200
  • HEADACHES OR JUST-- SHE FELT LIKE THAT
  • 00:32:11.220 --> 00:32:15.030
  • GOD SPOKE TO HER.
  • 00:32:15.050 --> 00:32:17.270
  • I MEAN THE SWEETENER SHE USED, SHE WOULD GET A CUP
  • 00:32:17.290 --> 00:32:22.010
  • OF TEA, ICED TEA AND PUT WHAT, FIVE PACKAGES OF
  • 00:32:22.030 --> 00:32:26.140
  • THE STUFF IN THERE?
  • 00:32:26.160 --> 00:32:28.100
  • AND IN HER COFFEE.
  • 00:32:28.120 --> 00:32:30.000
  • AS SOON AS SHE WENT OFF OF IT, HEADACHES QUIT.
  • 00:32:30.020 --> 00:32:33.080
  • - WOW.
  • 00:32:33.100 --> 00:32:34.290
  • - AND SO I AM JUST SAYING THAT YOU DO
  • 00:32:35.010 --> 00:32:37.270
  • WANT TO USE WISDOM.
  • 00:32:37.290 --> 00:32:40.010
  • YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T EXPECT TO FEEL GOOD IF YOU'RE
  • 00:32:40.030 --> 00:32:41.220
  • GONNA LIVE ON JUNK FOOD AND NEVER EXERCISE AND
  • 00:32:41.240 --> 00:32:45.020
  • GET FIVE HOURS OF SLEEP EVERY NIGHT WHEN YOU
  • 00:32:45.040 --> 00:32:47.010
  • REALLY NEED EIGHT.
  • 00:32:47.030 --> 00:32:48.280
  • SO IT'S WISE TO ASK GOD IF THERE IS SOMETHING IN
  • 00:32:49.000 --> 00:32:54.010
  • THIS CRISIS THAT YOU NEED TO DO, AND EVEN THEN
  • 00:32:54.030 --> 00:32:58.180
  • SOMETIMES YOUR PROBLEMS DON'T GO AWAY RIGHT AWAY
  • 00:32:58.200 --> 00:33:00.200
  • AND THAT'S WHEN HE SAYS HAVING DONE ALL THE
  • 00:33:00.220 --> 00:33:02.180
  • CRISIS DEMANDS, IT'S IN THE CLASSIC AMPLIFIED, STAND.
  • 00:33:02.200 --> 00:33:06.270
  • BUT THAT WORD STAND CAN ALSO BE TRANSLATED ABIDE.
  • 00:33:06.290 --> 00:33:10.030
  • IT'S NOT LIKE THIS...
  • 00:33:10.050 --> 00:33:12.090
  • I'M GONNA RESIST THE DEVIL TILL HE GIVES IN.
  • 00:33:12.110 --> 00:33:15.060
  • BUT IT'S RESTING IN GOD.
  • 00:33:15.080 --> 00:33:19.040
  • SO EVEN IN CHRONICLES WHERE WE USE THE EXAMPLE
  • 00:33:19.060 --> 00:33:23.200
  • OF JEHOSHAPHAT AND THE LORD SAID THE BATTLE'S
  • 00:33:23.220 --> 00:33:25.190
  • NOT YOURS, IT'S MINE.
  • 00:33:25.210 --> 00:33:27.160
  • THE ENEMY YOU SEE TODAY YOU'LL NEVER SEE AGAIN.
  • 00:33:27.180 --> 00:33:29.250
  • BUT HE ALSO TOLD HIM WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:33:29.270 --> 00:33:31.200
  • HE TOLD HIM TO SEND OUT SINGERS AND PRAISE AND
  • 00:33:31.220 --> 00:33:35.170
  • WORSHIP, AND SO HE WENT AND GOT ON HIS KNEES AND
  • 00:33:35.190 --> 00:33:37.240
  • STAYED THERE UNTIL THEY GOT THE VICTORY.
  • 00:33:37.260 --> 00:33:39.270
  • SO SOMETIMES THAT'S WHAT GOD WILL TELL YOU.
  • 00:33:39.290 --> 00:33:41.250
  • JUST BE THANKFUL.
  • 00:33:41.270 --> 00:33:43.160
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:33:43.180 --> 00:33:44.280
  • OKAY, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT YOUR BATTLES BELONG
  • 00:33:45.000 --> 00:33:47.260
  • TO THE LORD. INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN GET THIS BOOK,
  • 00:33:47.280 --> 00:33:51.080
  • BRAND-NEW. GET IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:33:51.100 --> 00:33:53.120
  • I WANTED TO GO DOWN, IF YOU DON'T MIND, DOWN TO
  • 00:33:53.140 --> 00:33:59.170
  • WHAT MIGHT BE, I MEAN I WANT TO HEAR, YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:33:59.190 --> 00:34:04.150
  • PART ONE AND PART TWO OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE GOD'S WAY.
  • 00:34:04.170 --> 00:34:09.150
  • I THINK I'M UNDERSTANDING WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:34:09.170 --> 00:34:13.250
  • REST AND PEACE AND JOY AND LOVE BEING KIND OF
  • 00:34:13.270 --> 00:34:18.270
  • WHAT WARFARE REALLY IS.
  • 00:34:18.290 --> 00:34:20.130
  • I'M STARTING TO TRACK WHAT THIS BOOK
  • 00:34:20.150 --> 00:34:23.180
  • IS REALLY TELLING US.
  • 00:34:23.200 --> 00:34:25.060
  • BUT WHAT ARE YOU SAYING IN THOSE TWO CHAPTERS?
  • 00:34:25.080 --> 00:34:27.180
  • - OKAY, IF YOU TAKE EPHESIANS 6 AND IT TALKS
  • 00:34:27.200 --> 00:34:31.150
  • ABOUT HOW OUR FIGHT IS NOT WITH FLESH AND BLOOD
  • 00:34:31.170 --> 00:34:38.190
  • BUT WITH PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS AND WICKEDNESS
  • 00:34:38.210 --> 00:34:41.080
  • IN HIGH PLACES, AND IT SAYS PUT ON THE FULL
  • 00:34:41.100 --> 00:34:46.150
  • ARMOR OF GOD THAT YOU MAY RESIST AND STAND, AND
  • 00:34:46.170 --> 00:34:52.220
  • HAVING DONE ALL THE CRISIS DEMANDS, STAND
  • 00:34:52.240 --> 00:34:55.080
  • FIRMLY IN YOUR PLACE.
  • 00:34:55.100 --> 00:34:57.270
  • THEN IT STARTS TO GO THROUGH THESE DIFFERENT
  • 00:34:57.290 --> 00:35:00.070
  • THINGS. PUT ON RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:35:00.090 --> 00:35:03.180
  • PUT ON YOUR SHOES OF PEACE.
  • 00:35:03.200 --> 00:35:06.160
  • PUT ON THE BELT OF TRUTH.
  • 00:35:06.180 --> 00:35:10.030
  • PUT ON THE HELMET OF SALVATION.
  • 00:35:10.050 --> 00:35:12.040
  • WELL, HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:35:12.060 --> 00:35:16.250
  • WELL, MOST PEOPLE SPEND MORE TIME GETTING DRESSED
  • 00:35:16.270 --> 00:35:21.000
  • PHYSICALLY IN THE MORNING THAN THEY DO GETTING
  • 00:35:21.020 --> 00:35:22.170
  • DRESSED SPIRITUALLY.
  • 00:35:22.190 --> 00:35:25.230
  • I MEAN A LOT OF PEOPLE WON'T EVEN SPEND THREE TO
  • 00:35:25.250 --> 00:35:27.270
  • FIVE MINUTES WITH GOD IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:35:27.290 --> 00:35:30.220
  • AT THIS TIME IN MY LIFE, I'M NOT GOING OUT THE
  • 00:35:30.240 --> 00:35:34.090
  • DOOR WITHOUT TALKING TO GOD.
  • 00:35:34.110 --> 00:35:36.250
  • I'M JUST NOT DOING IT BECAUSE THE LORD TOLD ME
  • 00:35:36.270 --> 00:35:41.090
  • A LONG TIME AGO, YOU CAN'T DO WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:35:41.110 --> 00:35:43.100
  • DOING -- I MEAN I'LL JUST TELL YOU WHAT HE SAID --
  • 00:35:43.120 --> 00:35:46.050
  • AND STAY ALIVE IF YOU DON'T SPEND TIME WITH ME.
  • 00:35:46.070 --> 00:35:50.190
  • BECAUSE THE DEVIL HATES EVERYBODY BUT ESPECIALLY
  • 00:35:50.210 --> 00:35:52.270
  • HATES PEOPLE THAT ARE PREACHING AND
  • 00:35:52.290 --> 00:35:55.130
  • SPREADING THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:35:55.150 --> 00:35:58.000
  • WE SEAT THINGS THAT THE APOSTLE PAUL HAD TO GO
  • 00:35:58.020 --> 00:35:59.270
  • THROUGH IN ORDER TO DO WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:35:59.290 --> 00:36:03.290
  • SO WE ALL GET ATTACKED, BUT I THINK THE MORE
  • 00:36:04.010 --> 00:36:06.240
  • YOU'RE TRYING TO DO FOR GOD, AND YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:36:06.260 --> 00:36:08.160
  • TO BE IN PUBLIC MINISTRY TO BE A MINISTER.
  • 00:36:08.180 --> 00:36:11.260
  • I MEAN WE ALL HAVE A MINISTRY.
  • 00:36:11.280 --> 00:36:14.090
  • PAUL SAID IT SEEMS TO ME WHEN I TRY TO DO GOOD,
  • 00:36:14.110 --> 00:36:17.290
  • EVIL ALWAYS COMES.
  • 00:36:18.010 --> 00:36:19.290
  • WELL ISN'T IT THAT WAY?
  • 00:36:20.010 --> 00:36:22.010
  • YOU MAKE A PLAN TO GET UP EARLY AND PRAY AND
  • 00:36:22.030 --> 00:36:23.210
  • SOMETHING'S GONNA COME TO STAND IN YOUR WAY.
  • 00:36:23.230 --> 00:36:29.000
  • AND THAT'S WHEN WE NEED TO REALIZE THAT IT'S
  • 00:36:29.020 --> 00:36:31.210
  • REALLY NOT THE KIDS KNOCKING ON OUR DOOR THAT
  • 00:36:31.230 --> 00:36:36.050
  • NEEDS TO UPSET US.
  • 00:36:36.070 --> 00:36:38.060
  • IT'S THE ENEMY TRYING TO KEEP US FROM DOING WHAT
  • 00:36:38.080 --> 00:36:40.070
  • WE BELIEVE GOD TOLD US TO DO.
  • 00:36:40.090 --> 00:36:42.100
  • SO IF YOU-- WHAT THOSE TWO CHAPTERS ARE ABOUT IS
  • 00:36:42.120 --> 00:36:47.010
  • WHAT IT MEANS TO PUT ON.
  • 00:36:47.030 --> 00:36:49.160
  • NOW LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS LIKE IS THERE A COLOR
  • 00:36:49.180 --> 00:36:55.010
  • THAT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD ON YOU LAURIE?
  • 00:36:55.030 --> 00:36:56.210
  • - LAURIE: OH, YEAH.
  • 00:36:56.230 --> 00:36:57.250
  • - JOYCE: WHAT?
  • 00:36:57.270 --> 00:36:59.060
  • - UM, WHAT COLOR DOESN'T LOOK GOOD ON ME?
  • 00:36:59.080 --> 00:37:01.290
  • - I LOVE EVERY COLOR ON YOU.
  • 00:37:02.010 --> 00:37:03.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:37:03.290 --> 00:37:05.210
  • - JOYCE: OKAY, LIKE, LIKE--
  • 00:37:05.230 --> 00:37:07.100
  • - LAURIE: GOOD ANSWER.
  • 00:37:07.120 --> 00:37:09.140
  • - JOYCE: GOOD ANSWER. GOOD ANSWER. LIKE--
  • 00:37:09.160 --> 00:37:13.040
  • - LAURIE: GOOD ANSWER, RIGHT.
  • 00:37:13.060 --> 00:37:15.290
  • - ARMY GREEN MAKES ME LOOK LIKE I'M A DEAD
  • 00:37:16.010 --> 00:37:18.060
  • PERSON. IT JUST LOOKS...
  • 00:37:18.080 --> 00:37:21.060
  • OR LIKE THAT MUSTARD YELLOW COLOR.
  • 00:37:21.080 --> 00:37:23.210
  • I LOOK SO BAD IN THAT.
  • 00:37:23.230 --> 00:37:26.280
  • WELL, I WOULDN'T GO OUT IN THAT.
  • 00:37:27.000 --> 00:37:30.120
  • - LAURIE: RED LOOKS LOVELY ON YOU.
  • 00:37:30.140 --> 00:37:31.270
  • - YEAH, RED LOOKS GOOD ON ME. I WORE RED TODAY.
  • 00:37:31.290 --> 00:37:33.290
  • AND THE THING IS WE WEAR BEHAVIOR THAT LOOKS
  • 00:37:34.010 --> 00:37:39.010
  • TERRIBLE ON US AS CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:37:39.030 --> 00:37:41.130
  • - THAT'S GOOD. YEAH.
  • 00:37:41.150 --> 00:37:44.260
  • - TO HAVE A BUMPER STICKER ON YOUR CAR
  • 00:37:44.280 --> 00:37:48.130
  • THAT'S A FISH AND BE, YEAH AND CUTTING
  • 00:37:48.150 --> 00:37:51.220
  • EVERYBODY OFF AND YELLING AT PEOPLE AND MAYBE
  • 00:37:51.240 --> 00:37:55.160
  • SAYING SOME NICE LITTLE WORDS YOU SHOULDN'T BE
  • 00:37:55.180 --> 00:37:57.270
  • SAYING. SO WE NEED TO REALIZE THAT JESUS HAS ENTRUSTED
  • 00:37:57.290 --> 00:38:06.040
  • US WITH HIS REPUTATION.
  • 00:38:06.060 --> 00:38:08.270
  • CAN YOU GET AHOLD OF THAT.
  • 00:38:08.290 --> 00:38:11.160
  • HE'S ENTRUSTED US WITH HIS REPUTATION.
  • 00:38:11.180 --> 00:38:14.210
  • FOR SOME PEOPLE, YOU'RE THE ONLY JESUS THEY'RE
  • 00:38:14.230 --> 00:38:17.090
  • EVER GONNA SEE, AND SO EVERY DAY WHEN WE GO OUT
  • 00:38:17.110 --> 00:38:21.220
  • OF OUR HOUSE, WE GO TO WORK FOR THE LORD, AND
  • 00:38:21.240 --> 00:38:25.110
  • YOU CAN PREACH AND NOT OPEN YOUR MOUTH.
  • 00:38:25.130 --> 00:38:27.240
  • MATTER OF FACT, PROBABLY HOW WE LIVE IS MUCH MORE
  • 00:38:27.260 --> 00:38:33.150
  • IMPORTANT THAN ALL OF OUR PREACHING TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:38:33.170 --> 00:38:37.060
  • BUT LET'S TAKE THE BIBLE SAYS PUT ON RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:38:37.080 --> 00:38:41.260
  • WELL, HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVE UNDER GUILT AND
  • 00:38:41.280 --> 00:38:47.230
  • CONDEMNATION ALMOST ALL THE TIME?
  • 00:38:47.250 --> 00:38:51.270
  • I MEAN IF YOU TOOK A CHURCH FULL OF PEOPLE AND
  • 00:38:51.290 --> 00:38:54.090
  • YOU WENT DOWN THIS LIST, HOW MANY ARE WEARING
  • 00:38:54.110 --> 00:38:57.030
  • SHOES OF PEACE?
  • 00:38:57.050 --> 00:38:59.200
  • WELL YOUR SHOES ARE SOMETHING YOU WALK IN,
  • 00:38:59.220 --> 00:39:02.020
  • SO HE'S TALKING ABOUT WALKING IN PEACE.
  • 00:39:02.040 --> 00:39:05.140
  • AND YOU KNOW YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE LAST
  • 00:39:05.160 --> 00:39:07.100
  • THING THAT JESUS SAID WAS TO GO IN ALL THE WORLD
  • 00:39:07.120 --> 00:39:09.290
  • AND PREACH THE GOSPEL AND I'LL BE WITH YOU, BUT ONE
  • 00:39:10.010 --> 00:39:12.270
  • OF THE OTHER LAST THINGS HE SAID WAS MY PEACE I
  • 00:39:12.290 --> 00:39:16.150
  • LEAVE WITH YOU, NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES DO I GIVE
  • 00:39:16.170 --> 00:39:20.240
  • UNTO YOU BUT MY OWN SPECIAL PEACE I NOW GIVE
  • 00:39:20.260 --> 00:39:23.000
  • AND BEQUEATH UNTO YOU.
  • 00:39:23.020 --> 00:39:25.060
  • SO STOP ALLOWING YOURSELVES TO BE UPSET
  • 00:39:25.080 --> 00:39:27.210
  • AND DISTURBED, AND STOP ALLOWING YOURSELVES-SO WE
  • 00:39:27.230 --> 00:39:33.080
  • DO HAVE RESPONSIBILITY, AND I THINK THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:39:33.100 --> 00:39:38.040
  • TO GET OVER THIS THINKING THAT GOD IS GOING TO DO
  • 00:39:38.060 --> 00:39:41.230
  • EVERYTHING FOR US WHILE WE DO NOTHING.
  • 00:39:41.250 --> 00:39:45.040
  • SPENDING TIME WITH GOD.
  • 00:39:45.060 --> 00:39:49.280
  • WE'RE PROTECTED BY THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:39:50.000 --> 00:39:53.020
  • HIS PRESENCE ACTUALLY IS PROTECTION OVER US AND
  • 00:39:53.040 --> 00:39:57.000
  • STAYING PEACEFUL LIKE MY LITTLE PHONE THING THIS
  • 00:39:57.020 --> 00:40:02.080
  • MORNING, I NEVER DID GET REALLY UPSET BUT THERE
  • 00:40:02.100 --> 00:40:07.010
  • WOULD HAVE BEEN A TIME WHEN...
  • 00:40:07.030 --> 00:40:10.140
  • - LAURIE: THROW IT OUT THE WINDOW.
  • 00:40:10.160 --> 00:40:12.000
  • - I WOULD HAVE HAD TO HAVE DONE SOME MAJOR
  • 00:40:12.020 --> 00:40:13.240
  • REPENTING BEFORE I CAME IN HERE AND TRIED TO DO
  • 00:40:13.260 --> 00:40:16.180
  • THIS. AND WE DO NOT HAVE STRIFE IN OUR HOME.
  • 00:40:16.200 --> 00:40:22.280
  • IF DAVE AND I GET INTO ANY KIND OF A
  • 00:40:23.000 --> 00:40:24.230
  • DISAGREEMENT NOW, WHICH IS RARE.
  • 00:40:24.250 --> 00:40:26.280
  • YOU STAY MARRIED TO SOMEBODY LONG ENOUGH
  • 00:40:27.000 --> 00:40:28.060
  • AND YOU LEARN.
  • 00:40:28.080 --> 00:40:30.130
  • - LAURIE: TAKE A NAP AND FORGET ALL ABOUT IT.
  • 00:40:30.150 --> 00:40:32.040
  • - YOU JUST LEARN.
  • 00:40:32.060 --> 00:40:33.240
  • AND THE MAIN THING WOMEN HAVE TO LEARN IS THAT MEN
  • 00:40:33.260 --> 00:40:35.140
  • ARE ALWAYS RIGHT, AND SO EVEN IF YOU KNOW FOR SURE
  • 00:40:35.160 --> 00:40:40.160
  • HE'S WRONG, THE BEST THING TO DO IS JUST SAY
  • 00:40:40.180 --> 00:40:44.170
  • UH-HUH HONEY, UH-HUH. UH-HUH. BECAUSE IT'S NOT WORTH IT.
  • 00:40:44.190 --> 00:40:49.260
  • BEING RIGHT IS HIGHLY OVERRATED.
  • 00:40:49.280 --> 00:40:51.170
  • WHAT'S THE POINT?
  • 00:40:51.190 --> 00:40:53.180
  • SO I GET IN A FIGHT TO BE RIGHT AND THEN I GET IN
  • 00:40:53.200 --> 00:40:56.120
  • THE PULPIT AND THERE'S NO ANOINTING BECAUSE I DON'T
  • 00:40:56.140 --> 00:40:59.290
  • HAVE PEACE ON MY LIFE.
  • 00:41:00.030 --> 00:41:02.120
  • SO IT'S REALLY LEARNING HOW JESUS DID WARFARE.
  • 00:41:02.140 --> 00:41:08.040
  • HE WAS IN PEACE ALL THE TIME, SPENT LOTS OF TIME
  • 00:41:08.060 --> 00:41:11.090
  • WITH HIS FATHER.
  • 00:41:11.110 --> 00:41:15.080
  • CERTAINLY NEVER WAS CONDEMNED.
  • 00:41:15.100 --> 00:41:19.010
  • I MEAN I HAD SUCH A HUGE PROBLEM WITH GUILT
  • 00:41:19.030 --> 00:41:21.250
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED TO ME IN MY CHILDHOOD
  • 00:41:21.270 --> 00:41:23.210
  • THAT IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 00:41:23.230 --> 00:41:25.110
  • IT TOOK ME YEARS, YEARS TO GET OVER THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:41:25.130 --> 00:41:29.290
  • I GREW UP THINKING, THE DEVIL HAD THIS RECORD
  • 00:41:30.010 --> 00:41:34.020
  • PLAYING IN MY HEAD WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME, WHAT'S
  • 00:41:34.040 --> 00:41:36.210
  • WRONG WITH ME, BECAUSE I THOUGHT SOMETHING'S GOT
  • 00:41:36.230 --> 00:41:40.160
  • TO BE WRONG WITH ME FOR FOR MY FATHER TO WANT
  • 00:41:40.180 --> 00:41:42.110
  • TO DO THIS TO ME. THAT'S NOT HAPPENING TO ALL
  • 00:41:42.130 --> 00:41:44.120
  • THE OTHER GIRLS THAT I KNOW.
  • 00:41:44.140 --> 00:41:46.090
  • WELL IT'S PROBABLY HAPPENING TO MORE OF THEM
  • 00:41:46.110 --> 00:41:47.250
  • THAN WHAT I THOUGHT, BUT NOBODY TALKED ABOUT ABUSE.
  • 00:41:47.270 --> 00:41:51.210
  • YOU DIDN'T HAVE ANYBODY TO GO TALK TO ABOUT IT.
  • 00:41:51.230 --> 00:41:56.080
  • THERE WAS SO MUCH SHAME CONNECTED TO IT THAT YOU--
  • 00:41:56.100 --> 00:41:59.250
  • SO I GREW UP GUILTY, AND IT-- GOD HAD TO WORK
  • 00:41:59.270 --> 00:42:04.120
  • WITH ME TO GET ME OVER THAT.
  • 00:42:04.140 --> 00:42:06.190
  • BUT UNTIL I DID, IT WAS ALWAYS AN OPEN DOOR FOR
  • 00:42:06.210 --> 00:42:09.040
  • THE ENEMY BECAUSE HE'S THE ACCUSER OF THE
  • 00:42:09.060 --> 00:42:11.100
  • BRETHREN. AND VERY LEGALISTIC.
  • 00:42:11.120 --> 00:42:14.140
  • I MEAN YOU DON'T MAKE ONE LITTLE TINY MISTAKE IF
  • 00:42:14.160 --> 00:42:18.140
  • THE ENEMY IS AFTER YOU WITHOUT HIM REMINDING YOU
  • 00:42:18.160 --> 00:42:21.110
  • OF WHAT YOU DID WRONG.
  • 00:42:21.130 --> 00:42:24.200
  • - YOU KNOW, I LOVE WHEN JESUS DID ENCOUNTER SATAN
  • 00:42:24.220 --> 00:42:30.030
  • IN THE WILDERNESS AT HIS WEAKEST MOMENT WHERE HE
  • 00:42:30.050 --> 00:42:34.230
  • FINALLY SAID TO HIM, HE SAID SATAN, AND I THINK
  • 00:42:34.250 --> 00:42:37.110
  • THIS IS WHAT MAYBE SOME OF US THINK IS THAT THERE
  • 00:42:37.130 --> 00:42:40.190
  • IS THE DEVIL BETWEEN ME AND WHAT GOD WANTS FOR
  • 00:42:40.210 --> 00:42:44.110
  • ME, OR BETWEEN ME AND GOD, SO AND I JUST LOVE
  • 00:42:44.130 --> 00:42:47.140
  • THAT JESUS SAID SATAN, YOU GET BEHIND ME.
  • 00:42:47.160 --> 00:42:51.250
  • I'M NOT GONNA LOOK AT YOU ANY LONGER.
  • 00:42:51.270 --> 00:42:53.210
  • YOU'RE NOT HOLDING.
  • 00:42:53.230 --> 00:42:55.120
  • SO WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE'RE IN THOSE MOMENTS
  • 00:42:55.140 --> 00:42:59.170
  • WHERE WE THINK THAT WE JUST HAVE TO FIGHT
  • 00:42:59.190 --> 00:43:02.270
  • TO GET GOD'S BLESSING.
  • 00:43:02.290 --> 00:43:05.080
  • BECAUSE I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE FIGHT.
  • 00:43:05.100 --> 00:43:07.140
  • - INSTEAD OF STAND.
  • 00:43:07.160 --> 00:43:09.050
  • - INSTEAD OF STANDING THEY THINK IT'S THEIR
  • 00:43:09.070 --> 00:43:11.060
  • BATTLE TO FIGHT.
  • 00:43:11.080 --> 00:43:12.220
  • WELL THAT'S WHAT REALLY THIS IS ABOUT.
  • 00:43:12.240 --> 00:43:14.100
  • IT'S ABOUT YOUR BATTLE DOES BELONG TO THE LORD,
  • 00:43:14.120 --> 00:43:17.280
  • BUT WE'RE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:43:18.000 --> 00:43:21.210
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT A BORING LIFE IT WOULD BE
  • 00:43:21.230 --> 00:43:25.240
  • IF GOD JUST DID EVERYTHING FOR US AND
  • 00:43:25.260 --> 00:43:28.260
  • THERE WAS NOTHING THAT, YOU KNOW, WE DID?
  • 00:43:28.280 --> 00:43:33.250
  • WE DO WHAT HE SHOWS US TO DO AND I THINK THAT
  • 00:43:33.270 --> 00:43:37.010
  • FIGHTING THE ENEMY IS A LOT DIFFERENT THAN WHAT
  • 00:43:37.030 --> 00:43:40.190
  • PEOPLE THINK IT IS.
  • 00:43:40.210 --> 00:43:42.040
  • I MEAN WHEN YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, IF YOU CAN JUST
  • 00:43:42.060 --> 00:43:44.230
  • MANAGE TO STAY IN PEACE AND STAY THANKFUL.
  • 00:43:44.250 --> 00:43:48.060
  • - IT FEELS LIKE.
  • 00:43:48.080 --> 00:43:52.010
  • - WORSHIP AND THANKSGIVING.
  • 00:43:52.030 --> 00:43:53.160
  • - IT FEELS KIND OF LIKE THE WAY MY BRAIN IS
  • 00:43:53.180 --> 00:43:56.060
  • INTERPRETING SO FAR IS YOU'RE SAYING, WHAT
  • 00:43:56.080 --> 00:44:01.060
  • YOU'RE SAYING IS WARFARE IS REALLY EMBRACING THE
  • 00:44:01.080 --> 00:44:06.050
  • FINISHED WORK OF THE CROSS.
  • 00:44:06.070 --> 00:44:08.180
  • AND THE FINISHED WORK OF THE CROSS PROVIDED PEACE.
  • 00:44:08.200 --> 00:44:13.040
  • JESUS SAID I AM YOUR PEACE IN ADDITION,
  • 00:44:13.060 --> 00:44:15.290
  • IN A DIFFERENT PLACE.
  • 00:44:16.010 --> 00:44:17.190
  • SO HE EITHER IS OR HE ISN'T.
  • 00:44:17.210 --> 00:44:19.080
  • SO THE IDEA THAT YOU EMBRACE THE FINISHED WORK
  • 00:44:19.100 --> 00:44:22.270
  • OF THE CROSS IS REALLY WARFARE, BUT YOU
  • 00:44:22.290 --> 00:44:25.090
  • HAVE TO HAVE WISDOM.
  • 00:44:25.110 --> 00:44:27.090
  • WHEN YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THE
  • 00:44:27.110 --> 00:44:29.000
  • SITUATIONS WITH DAVE AND YOUR SECRETARY, THE
  • 00:44:29.020 --> 00:44:32.210
  • THOUGHT HIT MY HEAD, MY MOM WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER.
  • 00:44:32.230 --> 00:44:37.120
  • SHE PASSED AWAY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO FROM A
  • 00:44:37.140 --> 00:44:41.040
  • STROKE, BUT PRIOR TO THAT 15 YEARS AGO SHE WAS
  • 00:44:41.060 --> 00:44:44.040
  • DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER AND HAD COLON CANCER SURGERY
  • 00:44:44.060 --> 00:44:47.030
  • AND THE WHOLE THING.
  • 00:44:47.050 --> 00:44:49.000
  • AND SHE DIDN'T FEEL LIKE THE LORD SPOKE TO HER
  • 00:44:49.020 --> 00:44:52.220
  • VERY MUCH FOR A SEASON OF TIME, AND SHE WAS
  • 00:44:52.240 --> 00:44:55.130
  • REALLY DISTURBED BY IT.
  • 00:44:55.150 --> 00:44:56.290
  • AND FINALLY WHEN SHE WAS ALMOST GETTING OUT OF THE
  • 00:44:57.010 --> 00:45:00.150
  • SEASON OF COMPLAINING LIKE, REALLY I HAVE A LOT
  • 00:45:00.170 --> 00:45:03.050
  • TO DO AND I HAVE COLON CANCER AND I HAVE TO DEAL
  • 00:45:03.070 --> 00:45:05.230
  • WITH ALL OF THIS.
  • 00:45:05.250 --> 00:45:07.210
  • AND THE LORD SAID HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU USE
  • 00:45:07.230 --> 00:45:11.230
  • THAT ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:45:11.250 --> 00:45:15.230
  • IT'S THE FIRST THING HE SAID IN A WHOLE SEASON OF
  • 00:45:15.250 --> 00:45:18.220
  • COMPLAINING. AND SO, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:45:18.240 --> 00:45:21.260
  • - SHE USED IT ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:45:21.280 --> 00:45:23.270
  • - ON ANYTHING. A LOT.
  • 00:45:23.290 --> 00:45:25.250
  • - I MEAN ON MEATS.
  • 00:45:25.270 --> 00:45:27.210
  • - ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER. SHE JUST--
  • 00:45:27.230 --> 00:45:30.050
  • - ALL OVER EVERYTHING.
  • 00:45:30.070 --> 00:45:31.140
  • - IT WAS AWFUL.
  • 00:45:31.160 --> 00:45:32.240
  • SHE WAS A TERRIBLE COOK. NO, I'M KIDDING.
  • 00:45:32.260 --> 00:45:34.220
  • SHE WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT COOK.
  • 00:45:34.240 --> 00:45:37.050
  • MY MAMA GREW UP IN THE SOUTH AND KNEW HOW TO
  • 00:45:37.070 --> 00:45:39.150
  • COOK ALL THAT GOOD STUFF.
  • 00:45:39.170 --> 00:45:41.050
  • - EVERYTHING WAS SWEET.
  • 00:45:41.070 --> 00:45:42.140

  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:34.030 --> 00:46:37.050
  • SO KNOW YOUR ENEMY AND BE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR.
  • 00:46:37.070 --> 00:46:42.100
  • WE'VE GOT ABOUT TEN MINUTES LEFT, SO WHAT
  • 00:46:42.120 --> 00:46:45.230
  • CHAPTER DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT KIND OF
  • 00:46:45.250 --> 00:46:47.070
  • LAYING THE SHIP.
  • 00:46:47.090 --> 00:46:48.200
  • - I WANT TO RELATE TO SOMETHING THAT LAURIE
  • 00:46:48.220 --> 00:46:50.020
  • SAID BECAUSE I THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT WHEN YOU
  • 00:46:50.040 --> 00:46:51.280
  • WERE TALKING ABOUT JESUS IN THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:46:52.000 --> 00:46:54.230
  • THE WAY THAT HE FOUGHT THE DEVIL WAS EVERY
  • 00:46:54.250 --> 00:46:58.040
  • TIME THE DEVIL WOULD LIE TO HIM-- AND SEE THIS IS
  • 00:46:58.060 --> 00:47:01.290
  • WHERE WE HAVE TO KNOW THE WORD BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:47:02.010 --> 00:47:05.240
  • KNOW THE WORD, THEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN THE
  • 00:47:05.260 --> 00:47:07.180
  • DEVIL IS LYING TO YOU.
  • 00:47:07.200 --> 00:47:09.290
  • SO I WONDER HOW MANY LIES JUST IN THIS
  • 00:47:10.010 --> 00:47:15.110
  • GROUP OF PEOPLE HERE.
  • 00:47:15.130 --> 00:47:19.280
  • WELL NO, LET'S JUST TAKE IN THE WHOLE VIEWING AUDIENCE.
  • 00:47:20.000 --> 00:47:24.150
  • HOW MANY LIES DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU
  • 00:47:24.170 --> 00:47:29.140
  • DON'T KNOW ARE LIES?
  • 00:47:29.160 --> 00:47:32.020
  • BECAUSE SEE, THE DECEPTION MEANS TO
  • 00:47:32.040 --> 00:47:35.010
  • BELIEVE A LIE, BUT IF YOU DON'T KNOW IT'S A LIE,
  • 00:47:35.030 --> 00:47:40.050
  • THEN TO YOU IT'S TRUTH AND IT BECOMES YOUR REALITY.
  • 00:47:40.070 --> 00:47:45.090
  • LIKE THE DEVIL HAD ALWAYS TOLD ME, I DIDN'T KNOW IT
  • 00:47:45.110 --> 00:47:47.260
  • WAS THE DEVIL BUT I ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT
  • 00:47:47.280 --> 00:47:51.170
  • BECAUSE I'D BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED, I WOULD ALWAYS
  • 00:47:51.190 --> 00:47:53.280
  • HAVE A SECOND RATE LIFE.
  • 00:47:54.000 --> 00:47:57.200
  • YOU'LL BE OKAY, BUT YOU'LL HAVE A SECOND RATE
  • 00:47:57.220 --> 00:48:00.270
  • LIFE. YOU'LL NEVER REALLY RECOVER FROM ANYTHING
  • 00:48:00.290 --> 00:48:04.040
  • LIKE THAT. YOU'LL NEVER BE REALLY QUITE NORMAL.
  • 00:48:04.060 --> 00:48:09.210
  • WELL, THE DEVIL LIED TO JESUS AND JESUS
  • 00:48:09.230 --> 00:48:14.090
  • IMMEDIATELY SAID IT IS WRITTEN.
  • 00:48:14.110 --> 00:48:17.040
  • HE DIDN'T ARGUE WITH HIM.
  • 00:48:17.060 --> 00:48:19.230
  • HE SAID IT IS WRITTEN AND HE QUOTED THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:48:19.250 --> 00:48:22.110
  • THAT UNDID THE LIE.
  • 00:48:22.130 --> 00:48:25.070
  • - TRUTH TO A LIE.
  • 00:48:25.090 --> 00:48:27.170
  • - YEAH, AND SO AS MUCH AS IT MAKES YOU FEEL ODD,
  • 00:48:27.190 --> 00:48:33.010
  • I'M A STRONG PROPONENT OF CONFESSING THE WORD OUT
  • 00:48:33.030 --> 00:48:36.120
  • LOUD, JUST TO LEARN TO TALK BACK TO THE DEVIL.
  • 00:48:36.140 --> 00:48:42.090
  • NOW OBVIOUSLY, IF YOU'RE SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU CAN'T
  • 00:48:42.110 --> 00:48:44.080
  • BE TALKING OUT LOUD, YOU CAN-- WOMEN KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:48:44.100 --> 00:48:48.200
  • MURMUR, SO WE CAN [LAUGHTER] MURMUR IT
  • 00:48:48.220 --> 00:48:51.240
  • OR MURDER IT UNDER OUR BREATH.
  • 00:48:51.260 --> 00:48:55.260
  • BUT EVEN WITH ALL THAT, LAURIE, HE WENT THROUGH
  • 00:48:55.280 --> 00:49:00.050
  • THAT THREE DIFFERENT TIMES, FOUR DIFFERENT
  • 00:49:00.070 --> 00:49:01.220
  • TIMES AND THEN THE BIBLE SAYS THAT SATAN WENT
  • 00:49:01.240 --> 00:49:06.250
  • AWAY, AND I LOVE THIS, TO WAIT FOR A
  • 00:49:06.270 --> 00:49:10.090
  • MORE OPPORTUNE TIME.
  • 00:49:10.110 --> 00:49:13.200
  • SO IF YOU THINK HE'S EVER GONNA COMPLETELY LEAVE
  • 00:49:13.220 --> 00:49:15.290
  • YOU ALONE, THAT'S JUST A MYTH.
  • 00:49:16.010 --> 00:49:20.270
  • - BUT WHAT I LOVE IS THAT YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:49:20.290 --> 00:49:22.270
  • KNOW THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:49:22.290 --> 00:49:24.110
  • YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT IT SAYS BECAUSE THE
  • 00:49:24.130 --> 00:49:25.290
  • TRUTH SETS YOU FREE.
  • 00:49:26.010 --> 00:49:27.140
  • AND IT'S THE TRUTH YOU KNOW.
  • 00:49:27.160 --> 00:49:29.060
  • - JESUS SAID YOU'LL KNOW THE TRUTH.
  • 00:49:29.080 --> 00:49:30.150
  • - YOU'LL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH
  • 00:49:30.170 --> 00:49:31.150
  • WILL MAKE YOU FREE.
  • 00:49:31.170 --> 00:49:33.180
  • AND PRAYER IS SO IMPORTANT, AND I'VE GOT A
  • 00:49:33.200 --> 00:49:37.190
  • COUPLE OF CHAPTERS IN HERE LIKE BREAKING
  • 00:49:37.210 --> 00:49:39.190
  • SATAN'S ASSIGNMENT. WELL, HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:49:39.210 --> 00:49:42.190
  • I BELIEVE HE HANDS OUT ASSIGNMENTS TO
  • 00:49:42.210 --> 00:49:44.270
  • HIS LITTLE DEMONS.
  • 00:49:44.290 --> 00:49:46.280
  • MOST OF US HAVE A LITTLE.
  • 00:49:47.000 --> 00:49:51.190
  • - LAURIE: LITTLE EVIL.
  • 00:49:51.210 --> 00:49:53.240
  • - YOU EVER SEE THE SHOW WHERE I HAVE THE LITTLE
  • 00:49:53.260 --> 00:49:55.110
  • DEVIL SITTING ON MY SHOULDER?
  • 00:49:55.130 --> 00:49:56.270
  • AND IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, HIS ASSIGNMENT
  • 00:49:56.290 --> 00:50:01.180
  • IS TO SCREAM IN YOUR EAR ALL DAY, SO WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:50:01.200 --> 00:50:03.290
  • GONNA DO? WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?
  • 00:50:04.010 --> 00:50:07.150
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:50:07.170 --> 00:50:09.270
  • THAT'S THE PROBLEM, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:50:09.290 --> 00:50:12.150
  • AND WE NEED TO JUST SAY I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
  • 00:50:12.170 --> 00:50:16.130
  • WHAT TO DO BECAUSE I'VE PRAYED AND I'LL DO WHAT
  • 00:50:16.150 --> 00:50:20.090
  • GOD SHOWS ME TO DO, BUT IF HE DOESN'T SHOW ME TO
  • 00:50:20.110 --> 00:50:22.180
  • DO ANYTHING THEN I'M GONNA WAIT ON HIM AND
  • 00:50:22.200 --> 00:50:24.200
  • GIVE THANKS WHILE I DO.
  • 00:50:24.220 --> 00:50:26.160
  • AND IF YOU'RE IN A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN SAY IT OUT
  • 00:50:26.180 --> 00:50:28.110
  • LOUD, I THINK IT HELPS YOU TO DO THAT.
  • 00:50:28.130 --> 00:50:32.140
  • YOU KNOW WHEN YOU FIRST START TELLING PEOPLE TO
  • 00:50:32.160 --> 00:50:35.100
  • CONFESS THINGS OUT LOUD, YOU FEEL A LITTLE BIT ODD
  • 00:50:35.120 --> 00:50:39.280
  • WALKING AROUND IN YOUR HOUSE TALKING OUT LOUD.
  • 00:50:40.000 --> 00:50:42.210
  • BUT YOU KNOW, I MAYBE HAVE SAID IN MY LIFETIME
  • 00:50:42.230 --> 00:50:46.140
  • NOW FIVE MILLION TIMES I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:50:46.160 --> 00:50:51.070
  • OF GOD IN CHRIST.
  • 00:50:51.090 --> 00:50:54.030
  • AND I HAD TO SAY THAT AND SAY THAT, AND SEE EVERY
  • 00:50:54.050 --> 00:50:57.030
  • TIME YOU SAY IT, IT'S LIKE ERASING ONE OF
  • 00:50:57.050 --> 00:51:01.220
  • THOSE WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME LIES.
  • 00:51:01.240 --> 00:51:06.010
  • AND FINALLY, I JUST WAS AT JOEL'S LAST WEEKEND
  • 00:51:06.030 --> 00:51:11.270
  • PREACHING, JOEL OSTEEN, AND I SAID THE DEVIL IS
  • 00:51:11.290 --> 00:51:15.120
  • ALWAYS TRYING TO REMIND YOU OF WHAT YOU'VE DONE
  • 00:51:15.140 --> 00:51:20.020
  • WRONG, BUT GOD JUST GAVE ME THIS THING TO GIVE
  • 00:51:20.040 --> 00:51:23.110
  • THEM, YOU'VE DONE MORE RIGHT IN YOUR LIFETIME
  • 00:51:23.130 --> 00:51:25.240
  • THAN YOU HAVE WRONG.
  • 00:51:25.260 --> 00:51:29.130
  • YOU TAKE DAVID, HE COMMITTED ADULTERY AND
  • 00:51:29.150 --> 00:51:31.030
  • MURDER YET GOD SAID HE WAS A MAN AFTER HIS OWN
  • 00:51:31.050 --> 00:51:33.220
  • HEART. HOW CAN YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:51:33.240 --> 00:51:35.220
  • WELL DAVID DID SOME WRONG BUT HE DID A WHOLE LOT OF
  • 00:51:35.240 --> 00:51:40.000
  • THINGS RIGHT. HE REALLY REALLY LOVED THE LORD.
  • 00:51:40.020 --> 00:51:44.230
  • SO EVEN THINGS LIKE THAT THAT YOU'VE MADE BIG
  • 00:51:44.250 --> 00:51:48.140
  • MISTAKES IN THE PAST, WHEN THE DEVIL STARTS
  • 00:51:48.160 --> 00:51:51.270
  • ANNOYING YOU ABOUT THEM, YOU CAN SAY YES, THANK
  • 00:51:51.290 --> 00:51:55.170
  • YOU FOR REMINDING ME HOW GRACIOUS GOD IS.
  • 00:51:55.190 --> 00:51:57.240
  • HE WAS SO GOOD TO FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:51:57.260 --> 00:52:00.210
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE A LOT
  • 00:52:00.230 --> 00:52:02.030
  • OF THINGS RIGHT TOO.
  • 00:52:02.050 --> 00:52:04.040
  • - WE WERE SITTING ON A SET WITH JORDAN RUBIN WHO
  • 00:52:04.060 --> 00:52:10.040
  • WAS SUFFERING WITH A DEBILITATING ILLNESS THAT
  • 00:52:10.060 --> 00:52:17.040
  • ALMOST TOOK HIS LIFE WHEN HE WAS A YOUNG GUY,
  • 00:52:17.060 --> 00:52:20.040
  • AND HE WAS CRAMPING INTERNALLY IN HIS BODY,
  • 00:52:20.060 --> 00:52:23.280
  • AND HE WAS VERY SICK.
  • 00:52:24.000 --> 00:52:26.220
  • HE HAD ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
  • 00:52:26.240 --> 00:52:28.210
  • HE WAS PASSING BLOOD. IT WAS A MESS.
  • 00:52:28.230 --> 00:52:31.070
  • AND THE FIRST THING HE COULD THINK TO THANK GOD
  • 00:52:31.090 --> 00:52:36.040
  • FOR IN HIS CONDITION WAS THE FOUR MINUTES IN
  • 00:52:36.060 --> 00:52:39.160
  • BETWEEN THE CRAMPS.
  • 00:52:39.180 --> 00:52:42.000
  • WHERE I WASN'T CRAMPING AND EMITTING BLOOD AND
  • 00:52:42.020 --> 00:52:45.180
  • HAVING TO GO TO THE BATHROOM 40 TIMES A DAY.
  • 00:52:45.200 --> 00:52:48.190
  • AND THAT WAS FOUR MINUTES, THEN IT GREW TO
  • 00:52:48.210 --> 00:52:53.050
  • SIX, THEN IT GREW TO EIGHT, AND THEN IT GREW
  • 00:52:53.070 --> 00:52:55.230
  • TO 20. AND HE WAS THANKFUL.
  • 00:52:55.250 --> 00:52:58.230
  • HE LEARNED TO SAY SOMETHING THANKFUL ABOUT
  • 00:52:58.250 --> 00:53:01.150
  • A DISEASE THAT WAS LITERALLY TAKING HIS LIFE.
  • 00:53:01.170 --> 00:53:05.080
  • YOU KNOW, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT ADOPTING AND WHAT I
  • 00:53:05.100 --> 00:53:10.260
  • BELIEVE YOU'RE SAYING IN THIS BROADCAST, MY BRAIN
  • 00:53:10.280 --> 00:53:16.220
  • IS PERCEIVING IT AS YOU PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF
  • 00:53:16.240 --> 00:53:21.090
  • GOD NOT TO FIGHT, TO STAND.
  • 00:53:21.110 --> 00:53:23.100
  • AND THE WORD SAYS THAT, TO STAND.
  • 00:53:23.120 --> 00:53:25.020
  • SO WHEN YOU STAND THERE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, IN
  • 00:53:25.040 --> 00:53:28.140
  • SALVATION, IN PEACE, THEN THE BATTLE THEN IS TURNED
  • 00:53:28.160 --> 00:53:33.160
  • OVER TO THE LORD AND HE FIGHTS IT AND WINS IT.
  • 00:53:33.180 --> 00:53:36.070
  • YOU HAVE TO STAND.
  • 00:53:36.090 --> 00:53:37.180
  • YOU HAVE TO REMAIN IN PEACE.
  • 00:53:37.200 --> 00:53:39.140
  • - YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST.
  • 00:53:39.160 --> 00:53:42.210
  • - OKAY, WITH THAT IN MIND, WE'VE GOT JUST A MINUTE.
  • 00:53:42.230 --> 00:53:45.200
  • WE'LL MAYBE HAVE ONE EXTRA FINAL THOUGHT BUT
  • 00:53:45.220 --> 00:53:48.130
  • PRAY FOR THE AUDIENCE FOR THIS SUBJECT.
  • 00:53:48.150 --> 00:53:50.260
  • THIS IS FANTASTIC. THANK YOU, JOYCE.
  • 00:53:50.280 --> 00:53:52.290
  • - FATHER, WE PRAY IN JESUS' NAME FOR EVERYONE
  • 00:53:53.010 --> 00:53:55.020
  • WHO IS HEARING THIS THAT THEY WOULD KNOW YOU, KNOW
  • 00:53:55.040 --> 00:54:00.110
  • WHO YOU ARE, BUT WE ALSO PRAY THAT THEY WOULD KNOW
  • 00:54:00.130 --> 00:54:04.010
  • THE ENEMY, THAT THEY WOULD RECOGNIZE WHEN
  • 00:54:04.030 --> 00:54:07.290
  • HE'S WORKING AND NOT BLAME IT ON PEOPLE OR
  • 00:54:08.010 --> 00:54:10.090
  • CIRCUMSTANCES, AND THAT THEY WOULD KNOW WHO THEY
  • 00:54:10.110 --> 00:54:13.080
  • ARE, THAT THEY WOULD KNOW WHO THEY ARE IN YOU AND
  • 00:54:13.100 --> 00:54:18.140
  • THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS AND THAT WARFARE DOESN'T
  • 00:54:18.160 --> 00:54:22.280
  • HAVE TO BE AN EXHAUSTING FIGHT WHERE YOU JUST
  • 00:54:23.000 --> 00:54:26.270
  • FIGHT AND WEAR YOURSELF OUT.
  • 00:54:26.290 --> 00:54:29.140
  • WE CAN LEARN HOW TO DO SPIRITUAL WARFARE YOUR WAY.
  • 00:54:29.160 --> 00:54:33.100
  • HELP THEM LEARN HOW TO STAY IN REST, HOW TO DO
  • 00:54:33.120 --> 00:54:36.110
  • THE WARFARE OF LOVE, HOW TO PUT ON RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:54:36.130 --> 00:54:42.120
  • HOW TO TIGHTEN THAT BELT OF TRUTH WHEN THEY'RE IN
  • 00:54:42.140 --> 00:54:46.090
  • A DIFFICULT TIME AND TO WEAR THE HELMET OF
  • 00:54:46.110 --> 00:54:49.090
  • SALVATION, TO THINK LIKE A PERSON WHO IS BORN
  • 00:54:49.110 --> 00:54:52.010
  • AGAIN. FATHER, TEACH US ALL EVERY DAY TO BE MORE
  • 00:54:52.030 --> 00:54:59.070
  • WATCHFUL AND TO BE MORE CAREFUL IN OUR WALK WITH YOU.
  • 00:54:59.090 --> 00:55:05.190
  • I BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE GONNA OPEN PEOPLE'S EYES
  • 00:55:05.210 --> 00:55:08.240
  • AND TEACH THEM THINGS THAT THEY HAVE NOT
  • 00:55:08.260 --> 00:55:12.190
  • PREVIOUSLY KNOWN, THAT THE ENEMY IS GONNA
  • 00:55:12.210 --> 00:55:15.240
  • LOSE MUCH GROUND.
  • 00:55:15.260 --> 00:55:18.050
  • I ASK YOU TO PROTECT THIS BOOK, AND I ASK YOU TO
  • 00:55:18.070 --> 00:55:22.230
  • GIVE IT FAVOR THAT PEOPLE WOULD BE DRAWN TO GETTING
  • 00:55:22.250 --> 00:55:26.080
  • IT THAT DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY THEY'RE GETTING IT,
  • 00:55:26.100 --> 00:55:28.270
  • BUT THEY WOULD GET SOME UNDERSTANDING ABOUT HOW
  • 00:55:28.290 --> 00:55:33.110
  • THEY CAN HAVE A WONDERFUL WONDERFUL VICTORIOUS WALK
  • 00:55:33.130 --> 00:55:37.030
  • WITH YOU IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
  • 00:55:37.050 --> 00:55:41.130
  • - YOUR BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD.
  • 00:55:41.150 --> 00:55:43.000

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:55:44.200 --> 00:55:47.140
  • BUT IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO A LIE, IF
  • 00:55:47.160 --> 00:55:51.170
  • YOU DON'T KNOW THE TRUTH OF THE SITUATION, THIS IS
  • 00:55:51.190 --> 00:55:53.290
  • WHY JESUS WOULD SAY YOU KNOW THE TRUTH,
  • 00:55:54.010 --> 00:55:55.290
  • THE TRUTH THE MAKE YOU FREE.
  • 00:55:56.010 --> 00:55:57.090
  • IF YOU DON'T KNOW IT'S A LIE YOU DON'T KNOW TO
  • 00:55:57.110 --> 00:55:58.280
  • SPEAK TRUTH TO A LIE.
  • 00:55:59.000 --> 00:56:00.220
