  • FOR BEING WITH US TODAY.
  • 00:01:45.030 --> 00:01:46.210
  • - IT'S EASY FOR YOU TO HELP AND ENCOURAGE PEOPLE
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:50.010
  • BECAUSE WE'RE HERE IN THE BACKDROP OF THIS STADIUM,
  • 00:01:50.030 --> 00:01:54.020
  • DID YOU EVER THINK -AND THIS ALL STARTED ABOUT 14
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:56.200
  • YEARS AGO RIGHT HERE IN ATLANTA.
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:58.060
  • DID YOU EVER THINK THIS WOULD HAPPEN?
  • 00:01:58.080 --> 00:01:59.230
  • - I NEVER DID, PHIL.
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:01.000
  • I NEVER DREAMED I'D BE A MINISTER.
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:02.270
  • WHEN MY FATHER WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD, I'D WORKED
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:06.010
  • BEHIND THE SCENES FOR ALL THOSE YEARS BUT I KNEW I
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:08.150
  • WAS SUPPOSED TO STEP UP AND PASTOR THE CHURCH,
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:10.060
  • BUT I NEVER KNEW IT WAS GOING TO GROW LIKE THIS.
  • 00:02:10.080 --> 00:02:12.170
  • AND EVEN WHEN WE STARTED DOING THE NIGHTS OF HOPE
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:14.230
  • BACK IN 2004 I THINK IT WAS, WE WERE JUST
  • 00:02:14.250 --> 00:02:17.200
  • PLANNING ON DOING THREE IN ATLANTA AND NEW YORK
  • 00:02:17.220 --> 00:02:19.250
  • AND ANAHEIM, BUT SO MANY PEOPLE CAME OUT, AND
  • 00:02:19.270 --> 00:02:22.190
  • WE'VE BEEN DOING ONE A MONTH FOR THE LAST 12, 13,
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:25.150
  • 14 YEARS, HOWEVER MANY IT IS.
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:27.020
  • BUT AGAIN, IT'S JUST TO SHOW YOU THAT GOD'S DREAM
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:31.120
  • FOR YOUR LIFE HE'S GOT MORE IN STORE FOR YOU,
  • 00:02:31.140 --> 00:02:32.260
  • AND I BELIEVE EVERYDAY YOU'RE FAITHFUL, YOU GO
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:35.230
  • TO WORK, TO DO THE RIGHT THING, YOU DO MORE THAN
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:37.240
  • YOU HAVE TO.
  • 00:02:37.260 --> 00:02:39.080
  • MAYBE YOU'RE NOT GETTING THE CREDIT, BUT YOU'RE
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:40.230
  • NOT WORKING UNTO PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:40.250 --> 00:02:42.080
  • YOU'RE WORKING UNTO GOD SO YOU KEEP DOING THAT
  • 00:02:42.100 --> 00:02:44.030
  • RIGHT THING, AND I BELIEVE AS YOU PASS THESE
  • 00:02:44.050 --> 00:02:46.160
  • TESTS THERE ARE MOMENTS OF FAVOR THAT GOD'S
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:49.090
  • ALREADY LINED UP FOR YOU IN YOUR LIFE, MOMENTS
  • 00:02:49.110 --> 00:02:51.150
  • THAT WILL THRUST YOU YEARS AND YEARS AHEAD.
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:53.250
  • I THINK ABOUT EVEN, PHIL, US GETTING THE COMPAQ CENTER.
  • 00:02:53.270 --> 00:02:57.160
  • THAT TOOK US FROM A PART OF TOWN THAT WAS KIND OF
  • 00:02:57.180 --> 00:03:00.160
  • GOING DOWNHILL.
  • 00:03:00.180 --> 00:03:05.020
  • WE LOVE THE PEOPLE THERE, BUT WHEN WE MOVED INTO
  • 00:03:05.040 --> 00:03:06.260
  • COMPAQ, THAT LIGHT THRUST US 50 YEARS AHEAD,
  • 00:03:06.280 --> 00:03:08.100
  • JUST THAT ONE GOOD BREAK.
  • 00:03:08.120 --> 00:03:10.250
  • YOU KNOW, WE WOULDN'T BE WHERE WE ARE WITHOUT THAT
  • 00:03:10.270 --> 00:03:12.120
  • MOVE AND OF COURSE ALL THE CREDIT GOES TO GOD,
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:15.010
  • BUT MY POINT IS GOD HAS THOSE MOMENTS OF FAVOR
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:17.000
  • THAT YOU COULDN'T MAKE HAPPEN ON YOUR OWN.
  • 00:03:17.020 --> 00:03:18.200
  • YOU'RE JUST HONORING HIM AND HE CAUSES SOMETHING
  • 00:03:18.220 --> 00:03:21.080
  • TO FALL INTO YOUR LAP, SO YOU KEEP BEING FAITHFUL,
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:24.200
  • KEEP BEING YOUR BEST RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:26.060
  • EVEN THOUGH RECENTLY I WAS TALKING TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:28.180
  • ABOUT YOU HAVE TO TRUST GOD'S TIMING.
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:30.230
  • IT DOESN'T ALWAYS HAPPEN AS FAST AS WE'D LIKE, BUT
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:36.170
  • IF YOU'LL JUST KEEP DOING THE RIGHT THING EVEN WHEN
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:38.130
  • THE WRONG THING IS HAPPENING, THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:39.270
  • SAYS IN DUE SEASON YOU WILL REAP.
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:41.210
  • AND I SPOKE OUT OF PSALM 106 THE OTHER DAY.
  • 00:03:41.230 --> 00:03:45.080
  • IT SAYS THEY DID NOT WAIT FOR GOD'S PLAN TO UNFOLD,
  • 00:03:45.100 --> 00:03:47.180
  • AND SO GOD'S GOING TO UNFOLD HIS PLAN.
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:49.080
  • DON'T BE IN A BIG HURRY.
  • 00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:51.040
  • TRUST GOD'S TIMING.
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:53.150
  • IT MAY NOT BE HAPPENING AS FAST AS YOU WOULD
  • 00:03:53.170 --> 00:03:55.210
  • LIKE, BUT GOD HAS THOSE SUDDENLIES.
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:58.020
  • HE HAS THOSE MOMENTS OF FAVOR THAT LOOK LIKE YOU
  • 00:03:58.040 --> 00:04:00.250
  • WERE FALLING BEHIND BUT THEN GOD THRUSTS YOU
  • 00:04:00.270 --> 00:04:02.100
  • 20 YEARS AHEAD.
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:04.040
  • SO TRUST HIM BECAUSE HE HAS GREAT THINGS IN STORE.
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:06.170
  • - YEAH, I LIKE THE LINE GRADUALLY, THEN SUDDENLY.
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:08.050
  • PATIENCE IS A KEYWORD.
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:12.080
  • I LIKE TO SAY THAT PATIENCE IS FAITH
  • 00:04:12.100 --> 00:04:14.080
  • IN SLOW MOTION.
  • 00:04:14.100 --> 00:04:15.260
  • THAT'S WHERE YOU JUST HAVE TO -- YOU KNOW, JOEL,
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:18.060
  • YOU ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO PRAY BOLD PRAYERS.
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:21.030
  • YOU JUST REALLY, YOU HAVE A BELIEF THAT GOD IS NOT
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:26.060
  • OFFENDED BY US PRAYING BOLD PRAYERS.
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:28.160
  • - YOU KNOW, I KNOW HE'S NOT, AND IT'S EASY TO
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:32.110
  • PRAY FOR OUR FOOD AND THANK GOD FOR OUR FOOD
  • 00:04:32.130 --> 00:04:35.220
  • AND THANK HIM FOR PROTECTION AND FOR THE
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:36.290
  • SMALL THINGS.
  • 00:04:37.010 --> 00:04:39.140
  • AND THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:04:39.160 --> 00:04:41.190
  • WE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL AND NOT TAKE THINGS FOR
  • 00:04:41.210 --> 00:04:43.240
  • GRANTED, BUT I THINK, PHIL, SOMETIMES WE GREW
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:45.270
  • UP WITH I DON'T WANT TO BOTHER GOD.
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:47.070
  • THERE'S TRAGEDIES IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:49.080
  • JUST RECENTLY PEOPLE WERE HURT IN ACCIDENTS AND
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:51.220
  • TERRORISM, AND GOD'S GOT BIGGER THINGS TO DEAL WITH.
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:54.050
  • JOEL, THERE'S PEOPLE THAT HAVE GOT CANCER AND
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:04:55.230
  • OTHER THINGS.
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.010
  • I DON'T WANT TO BOTHER GOD.
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:04:58.130
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT BOTHERING GOD.
  • 00:04:58.150 --> 00:04:59.260
  • YOU ARE GOD'S BIGGEST DEAL.
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:01.100
  • GOD SHOWING YOU FAVOR DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FAVOR
  • 00:05:01.120 --> 00:05:03.180
  • FROM EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:05.260
  • GOD HAS THE ABILITY TO DO IT ALL, SO I THINK IT'S
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:09.270
  • IMPORTANT THE DREAMS GOD'S BUT IN YOUR HEART
  • 00:05:09.290 --> 00:05:13.030
  • PRAY BOLD PRAYERS.
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:14.260
  • YOU MAY NOT SEE HOW IT CAN HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:16.260
  • MAYBE YOU DON'T HAVE THE CONNECTIONS, THE
  • 00:05:16.280 --> 00:05:18.170
  • EXPERIENCE, THE EDUCATION.
  • 00:05:18.190 --> 00:05:20.030
  • I DIDN'T.
  • 00:05:20.050 --> 00:05:21.220
  • NOT TO GET THE COMPAQ, NOT TO BE IN A PLACE
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:23.100
  • LIKE THIS TODAY, BUT WHEN YOU DARE TO HAVE FAITH
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:25.250
  • AND SAY GOD, I DON'T SEE A WAY, BUT GOD, I TRUST YOU.
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:29.160
  • I KNOW YOU'RE A BIG GOD, AND I'M GOING TO TAKE THE
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:31.230
  • LIMITS OFF OF YOU.
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:33.080
  • I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR MY DREAMS OR MAYBE YOU NEED
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:36.160
  • TO ASK GOD TO HELP YOU BREAK AN ADDICTION OR ASK
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:38.270
  • HIM TO HELP YOU MEET THE RIGHT PERSON.
  • 00:05:38.290 --> 00:05:42.100
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKS ABOUT EVEN THE SECRET PETITIONS
  • 00:05:42.120 --> 00:05:44.280
  • OF YOUR HEART.
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.210
  • THERE ARE THINGS GOD HAS PUT IN YOUR HEART MAYBE
  • 00:05:46.230 --> 00:05:48.060
  • YOU'VE NOT TOLD ANYTHING ABOUT.
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:49.290
  • AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANNOUNCE IT TO ANYBODY
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:52.230
  • ELSE, BUT IN YOUR QUIET TIME YOU CAN SAY GOD, I'M
  • 00:05:52.250 --> 00:05:54.260
  • ASKING YOU TO HELP ME START THIS BUSINESS.
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:57.010
  • LET ME START THIS ORPHANAGE.
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:05:58.170
  • LET ME PAY MY HOUSE OFF.
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:00.180
  • A BOLD PRAYER BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT ALLOWS GOD TO
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:02.140
  • DO GREAT THINGS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:02.160 --> 00:06:05.010
  • - I LOVE THE STORY OF THE LITTLE BOY THAT WAS
  • 00:06:05.030 --> 00:06:07.140
  • AT A MALL AND HE WAS LOOKING AT AN ESCALATOR
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:10.090
  • AND SOMEONE THOUGHT HE WAS LOST AND SAID, LITTLE
  • 00:06:10.110 --> 00:06:11.210
  • BOY, CAN I HELP YOU?
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:13.120
  • AND HE JUST SAID NO, I'M WAITING FOR MY GUM TO
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:15.090
  • COME BACK AROUND.
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:17.180
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:19.270
  • YOU KNOW, THAT'S HOPE.
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:22.200
  • HOPE THE BIBLE SAYS IT DOESN'T DISAPPOINT, AND
  • 00:06:22.220 --> 00:06:26.020
  • THAT'S WHAT I THINK IS THE MANDATE THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:28.150
  • AND THAT TBN HAS AND THAT THIS IS THE MESSAGE WE'RE
  • 00:06:28.170 --> 00:06:33.270
  • TELLING PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.280
  • IF YOU HAVE HOPE, THAT'S ALL YOU NEED.
  • 00:06:36.000 --> 00:06:37.280
  • HOPE WILL HELP YOU ELEVATE THE FAITH AND
  • 00:06:38.000 --> 00:06:40.130
  • WITH FAITH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:43.150
  • - IT REALLY IS TRUE, PHIL.
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:45.030
  • AND JUST AGAIN, I THINK THE PEOPLE WE TALK TO ALL
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:47.220
  • THE TIME THAT WRITE, THAT CALL, THAT COME TO THE
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:51.030
  • MINISTRY, YOU KNOW, THINGS IN LIFE, LIFE CAN
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:54.080
  • BE VERY TOUGH, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:55.160
  • THERE'S A LOT PRESSING PEOPLE DOWN, AND I THINK
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:57.160
  • WHEN YOU KNOW GOD IS FOR YOU, THAT HE'S BREATHING
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:07:00.130

  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:02.140
  • AROUND, EVEN IF HE CAN DO WHAT MEDICINE CAN'T DO.
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:05.270
  • I'VE SEEN IT IN MY OWN LIFE WITH MY MOM WHEN IT
  • 00:07:05.290 --> 00:07:09.070
  • LOOKED LIKE SHE WASN'T GOING TO MAKE IT AND
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:11.000
  • 35 YEARS LATER SHE OVERCAME CANCER, SO I JUST THINK
  • 00:07:11.020 --> 00:07:13.190
  • YOUR LIFE IS GOING TO FOLLOW YOUR THOUGHTS, SO
  • 00:07:13.210 --> 00:07:17.110
  • IF YOU'RE NEGATIVE AND DISCOURAGED OR MAYBE
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:20.290
  • -- IT'S EASY TO HAVE A VICTIM MENTALITY AND
  • 00:07:21.010 --> 00:07:22.170
  • THINK WELL, JOEL, I'VE HAD A LOT OF BAD THINGS
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:26.130
  • HAPPEN TO ME.
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:28.020
  • I DIDN'T HAVE A GOOD CHILDHOOD OR I'VE COME
  • 00:07:28.040 --> 00:07:29.190
  • DOWN WITH THIS SICKNESS OR WHATEVER IT IS, BUT
  • 00:07:29.210 --> 00:07:31.130
  • YOUR LIFE IS GOING TO FOLLOW THAT NEGATIVE
  • 00:07:31.150 --> 00:07:33.080
  • PATTERN. IF YOU CAN TURN IT AROUND AND SAY YEAH,
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:34.270
  • I'VE HAD DISAPPOINTMENTS BUT GOD, I KNOW YOU SAID
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:37.080
  • YOU'D GIVE BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THAT WHAT WAS
  • 00:07:37.100 --> 00:07:39.060
  • MEANT FOR MY HARM THAT YOU WOULD TURN FOR
  • 00:07:39.080 --> 00:07:40.200
  • MY ADVANTAGE.
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:41.270
  • AND YOU LIVE OUT OF THAT PLACE OF FAITH AND
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:43.150
  • PEACE AND HOPE.
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:44.190
  • NOT SAYING THAT EVERYTHING IS PERFECT IN
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:47.030
  • YOUR LIFE, BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT GOD IS
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:49.060
  • IN CONTROL?
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:50.240
  • AND LISTEN, NO PERSON CAN STAND AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:52.200
  • NO DISAPPOINTMENT, NO SICKNESS.
  • 00:07:52.220 --> 00:07:54.240
  • GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY WHEN YOU BELIEVE ALL
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:57.270

  • IF THEY CAN BELIEVE IT, IF THEY CAN THINK IT, IF
  • 00:08:42.060 --> 00:08:44.140
  • THEY CAN BE POSITIVE ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:47.140
  • - THE VERY FIRST ONE WE EVER DID IN A BALLPARK
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:49.270
  • WAS YANKEE STADIUM, AND THEY ACTUALLY CALLED AND
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:52.170
  • ASKED IF WE WANTED TO COME AND OPEN UP THEIR
  • 00:08:52.190 --> 00:08:54.070
  • NEW STADIUM.
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:55.230
  • ONE OF THEIR STAFF MEMBERS WAS FAMILIAR WITH
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:57.190
  • THE MINISTRY, AND WHEN THEY DID, PHIL, I THOUGHT
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:08:59.150
  • WE CAN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:08:59.170 --> 00:09:01.160
  • IT'S GOING TO COST TOO MUCH MONEY.
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:03.020
  • AND I DON'T KNOW, THAT'S YANKEE STADIUM.
  • 00:09:03.040 --> 00:09:04.280
  • THAT'S TOO BIG, BUT GOD PRESENTS US ALL WITH
  • 00:09:05.000 --> 00:09:07.060
  • OPPORTUNITIES AND YOU CAN TALK YOURSELF OUT OF YOUR

  • IT'S GOING TO WORK OUT.
  • 00:09:14.250 --> 00:09:16.110
  • BUT I WENT UP AND SAW THE OLD FACILITY BEFORE THEY
  • 00:09:16.130 --> 00:09:18.200
  • TORE IT DOWN AND THEN THE NEW ONE, AND I THOUGHT
  • 00:09:18.220 --> 00:09:20.250
  • YOU KNOW, THIS IS A GOD OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:09:20.270 --> 00:09:23.010
  • AND I LEARNED THIS, GOD WOULDN'T GIVE YOU THE

  • BUT GOD HAS ALREADY EQUIPPED YOU.
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:41.030
  • WHEN YOU TAP INTO THAT, YOU TALK TO YOURSELF THE

  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:42.150
  • KNOW HOW TO PREACH.
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:44.030
  • WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.120
  • AND YOU WERE ONE MINISTER THAT I FOUND YOUR TAPES
  • 00:13:45.140 --> 00:13:48.250
  • AND I LISTENED TO ALL THE TIME, SO INSPIRING.
  • 00:13:48.270 --> 00:13:51.160
  • I THOUGHT I COULD RELATE TO JENTEZEN, BUT YOU'VE
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:53.170
  • SOWN SO MANY SEEDS INTO MY LIFE, AND I THANK YOU
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:56.100
  • FOR THAT.
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:57.280
  • BUT ISN'T IT AMAZING THAT MY PARENTS SOWED SEEDS
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:14:00.180
  • INTO YOU.
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:02.030
  • WE WERE TALKING EARLIER YOU HAD JUST A COUPLE
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:03.270
  • HUNDRED PEOPLE BUT TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:06.040
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:14:06.060 --> 00:14:07.220
  • WELL, FITS OF ALL IT'S GREAT, GREAT, GREAT TO
  • 00:14:07.240 --> 00:14:09.230
  • HAVE YOU GUYS COMING TO ATLANTA.
  • 00:14:09.250 --> 00:14:11.190
  • WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT IT.
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:13.120
  • I DO BELIEVE IF EVER THERE WAS A TIME AMERICA
  • 00:14:13.140 --> 00:14:17.050
  • AND ATLANTA AND OUR MAJOR CITIES NEEDED A NIGHT OF
  • 00:14:17.070 --> 00:14:20.140
  • HOPE, EVEN THAT WHOLE THEME I BELIEVE IS
  • 00:14:20.160 --> 00:14:23.010
  • INSPIRED OF GOD, I REALLY DO.
  • 00:14:23.030 --> 00:14:25.070
  • AND HOPE IS THE LOWEST LEVEL OF FAITH.
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:29.120
  • IT'S WHERE FAITH ALL BEGINS.
  • 00:14:29.140 --> 00:14:31.290
  • THE BIBLE SAYS FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:34.150
  • HOPED FOR.
  • 00:14:34.170 --> 00:14:36.110
  • SO IF YOU DON'T HAVE HOPE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
  • 00:14:36.130 --> 00:14:40.010
  • ACTIVATE YOUR FAITH, AND THAT'S ONE THING YOU DO
  • 00:14:40.030 --> 00:14:41.130
  • SO POWERFULLY IS YOU BRING THE MESSAGE OF
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:42.270
  • HOPE, THE MESSAGE OF FAITH.
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:45.110
  • AND IF PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE GOD, HE'LL DO
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:46.150
  • GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS.
  • 00:14:46.170 --> 00:14:48.000
  • SO WE'RE SO EXCITED, JOEL.
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:49.030
  • WE REALLY ARE.
  • 00:14:49.050 --> 00:14:50.130
  • WE BELIEVE GOD IS GOING TO CHANGE OUR CITY AND
  • 00:14:50.150 --> 00:14:51.260
  • CHANGE THIS WHOLE STATE BECAUSE OF A MESSAGE OF
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:55.150
  • HOPE REACHING OUR LEADERS AND REACHING OUR CITY,
  • 00:14:55.170 --> 00:14:58.060
  • BUT YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
  • 00:14:58.080 --> 00:15:00.040
  • YOUR PARENTS AND YOUR FAMILY IMPACTED OUR LIFE EARLY.
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:02.280
  • CHERISE AND I HAD JUST GONE TO FREE CHAPEL AND
  • 00:15:03.000 --> 00:15:06.290
  • BEGAN TO PASTOR.
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:08.270
  • I THINK IT WAS OUR FIRST YEAR OF PASTORING THERE,
  • 00:15:08.290 --> 00:15:12.220
  • AND YOUR DAD HAD AN ANNUAL PASTOR'S
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:16.170
  • CONFERENCE, AND WE DECIDED EVEN THOUGH I'D
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:19.160
  • NEVER MET HIM, HE WAS BIG LEAGUE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:15:19.180 --> 00:15:22.250
  • PREACHER IN MY MIND AND WORLD.
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:25.280
  • AND I THOUGHT WELL, LET'S JUST GO BECAUSE I REALLY
  • 00:15:26.000 --> 00:15:28.090
  • LOVE HIM.
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:30.040
  • I'D WATCH HIM EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT.
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:31.240
  • HE'D COME ON A CHANNEL AT MIDNIGHT.
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:35.050
  • I REMEMBER THAT FOR SOME REASON, AND I WOULD JUST
  • 00:15:35.070 --> 00:15:37.200
  • WAIT FOR ANTICIPATION TO HEAR WHAT HE WAS
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:39.080
  • GOING TO PREACH.
  • 00:15:39.100 --> 00:15:40.250
  • AND IT SO BLESSED ME AND INSPIRED ME.
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:42.200
  • AND I THOUGHT ONE DAY I COULD BUILD A CHURCH LIKE
  • 00:15:42.220 --> 00:15:46.000
  • THAT, SO WE WENT TO THE PASTOR'S CONFERENCE TO
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:47.280
  • MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, AND WE HAD MY SECOND
  • 00:15:48.000 --> 00:15:52.060
  • DAUGHTER CARISSA A WITH US, AND SHE WAS
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:53.260
  • JUST AN INFANT.
  • 00:15:53.280 --> 00:15:55.230
  • SHE WAS MAYBE THREE WEEKS OLD, FOUR WEEKS OLD,
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:58.050
  • SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:15:58.070 --> 00:16:00.030
  • AND SHE HAD A KIDNEY PROBLEM AND WE KNEW IT
  • 00:16:00.050 --> 00:16:03.080
  • EARLY, AND THEY SAID IT WOULD REQUIRE SURGERY.
  • 00:16:03.100 --> 00:16:04.290
  • AND YOUR MOTHER DODIE AT THE END OF ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:16:05.010 --> 00:16:08.070
  • SESSIONS, ONE OF THOUGH SERVICES DODIE SAW US.
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:12.080
  • I THINK YOUR DAD HAD SAID IF THERE'S A SPECIAL
  • 00:16:12.100 --> 00:16:15.170
  • NEED, IT'S THE LAST SESSION, FOR YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:17.020
  • COME FORWARD.
  • 00:16:17.040 --> 00:16:20.000
  • AND WE HAD BROUGHT THE BABY WITH US.
  • 00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:23.280
  • AND SHE POINTED US OUT, YOUR MOTHER, AND SHE MADE
  • 00:16:24.000 --> 00:16:25.040
  • THE USHERS BRING US DOWN.
  • 00:16:25.060 --> 00:16:26.240
  • AND SHE HELD MY LITTLE DAUGHTER UP CARISSA
  • 00:16:26.260 --> 00:16:28.160
  • LIKE, I CAN SEE THE PICTURE OF LION KING.
  • 00:16:28.180 --> 00:16:33.020
  • SHE JUST HELD HER UP BEFORE THE LORD LIKE
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:35.130
  • THIS, HELD MY DAUGHTER UP.
  • 00:16:35.150 --> 00:16:37.190
  • AND SHE SAID JESUS, HEAL THIS CHILD.
  • 00:16:37.210 --> 00:16:39.200
  • YOU ARE THE HEALER.
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.180
  • HEAL THIS CHILD'S KIDNEY.
  • 00:16:41.200 --> 00:16:43.100
  • AND BOY, I BROKE.
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:45.060
  • I STILL GET EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT IF I THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:16:45.080 --> 00:16:46.270
  • AND MY WIFE BROKE BECAUSE THAT'S OUR BABY, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:16:46.290 --> 00:16:49.140
  • AND I'M TELLING YOU THE TRUTH.
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:51.280
  • WE CAME BACK, TOOK HER RIGHT OVER HERE IN
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:54.150
  • ATLANTA IN THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL.
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:57.210
  • WE TOOK HER TO -- WE SAID PLEASE DO ONE MORE X-RAY
  • 00:16:57.230 --> 00:17:00.100
  • BEFORE THE SURGERY.
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:02.020
  • AND THEY DID AN X-RAY.
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:03.180
  • AND WE HAVE THE BEFORE AND AFTER X-RAYS.
  • 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:07.180
  • ONE WAS SHRIVELED UP, AND LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE BLEW
  • 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:09.210
  • A TINY BALLOON, AND IT WAS FUNCTIONING, TOTALLY
  • 00:17:09.230 --> 00:17:13.250
  • HEALED AND NORMAL TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:15.260
  • SO YOU GUYS HAVE TOUCHED THE BODY OF CHRIST,
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:18.210
  • TOUCHED US IN PROFOUND WAYS, AND TO SEE WHAT GOD
  • 00:17:18.230 --> 00:17:23.130
  • IS DOING HERE AND THROUGH YOU IN THE FAITH THAT YOU
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:26.120
  • HAVE FOR OUR CITIES AND FOR OUR NATION, THERE'S
  • 00:17:26.140 --> 00:17:30.070
  • NO DOUBT IN MY MIND GOD IS GOING TO USE THIS
  • 00:17:30.090 --> 00:17:32.050
  • NIGHT IN A POWERFUL WAY TO BLESS PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:32.070 --> 00:17:34.130
  • AND I WANT TO TELL PEOPLE WATCHING THIS SHOW ON TBN
  • 00:17:34.150 --> 00:17:36.110
  • THAT GOD CAN STILL PERFORM A MIRACLE, THAT
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:40.010
  • MIRACLES CAN STRIKE AS SUDDENLY AS TRAGEDIES,
  • 00:17:40.030 --> 00:17:42.120
  • AND ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS BELIEVE.
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:44.290
  • BECAUSE WE WEREN'T EVEN REALLY EXPECTING THE MIRACLE.
  • 00:17:45.010 --> 00:17:47.070
  • WE'D COME FOR A DIFFERENT REASON, BUT GOD KNOWS HOW
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:50.090
  • TO INTERRUPT THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAM.
  • 00:17:50.110 --> 00:17:52.180
  • AND MAYBE THAT'S WHAT THIS IS FOR YOUR LIFE
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:54.160
  • EVEN AS YOU'RE WATCHING.
  • 00:17:54.180 --> 00:17:55.290
  • - I LOVE THAT, JENTEZEN.
  • 00:17:56.010 --> 00:17:57.150
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S AMAZING THAT MY MOM, THE ONE THAT
  • 00:17:57.170 --> 00:18:01.030
  • WAS PRAYING FOR HER WAS THE ONE THAT HAD CANCER
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.130
  • IN 1981, TERMINAL CANCER, AND GOD HEALED
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:05.010
  • HER, AND NOW SHE'S PRAYING FOR JENTEZEN'S
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:08.110
  • DAUGHTER, AND SHE WAS HEALED.
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:10.050
  • BUT, YOU KNOW, GOD CAN DO WHAT MEDICINE CAN'T DO.
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:11.150
  • HE'S A SUPERNATURAL GOD, AND HE'S NOT LIMITED BY
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:13.080
  • THE LAWS OF NATURE.
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:15.010
  • WE WOULDN'T BE HERE TODAY IF GOD WASN'T A BIG GOD,
  • 00:18:15.030 --> 00:18:17.240
  • A SUPERNATURAL GOD, A GOD THAT CAN DO THINGS THAT
  • 00:18:17.260 --> 00:18:22.070
  • WE'D NEVER EVEN DREAMED OF SO OUR ENCOURAGEMENT
  • 00:18:22.090 --> 00:18:24.250
  • TO YOU IS TO BE A BELIEVER AND NOT A DOUBTER.
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:28.020
  • IT'S EASY TO BE DISCOURAGED AND THINK
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:29.190
  • WELL, IT HAPPENED TO JENTEZEN.
  • 00:18:29.210 --> 00:18:30.260
  • HE'S A PASTOR.
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:31.220
  • IT HAPPENED FOR YOU JOEL.
  • 00:18:31.240 --> 00:18:33.030
  • BUT LISTEN, IT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU JUST AS WELL.
  • 00:18:33.050 --> 00:18:35.000
  • GOD IS JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY THAT
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:36.260
  • WILL BELIEVE.
  • 00:18:36.280 --> 00:18:39.060
  • I KNOW THAT'S YOU, BUT I LOVE THAT JENTEZEN, I'LL
  • 00:18:39.080 --> 00:18:40.270
  • SAY IT AGAIN THOUGH, SO YOU KNOW MY PARENTS SOWED
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:42.130
  • INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:42.150 --> 00:18:44.060
  • AND THEN YOU CAME BACK AND SOWED INTO MY LIFE
  • 00:18:44.080 --> 00:18:46.230
  • HELPING ME WHEN I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:48.090
  • MINISTER, STILL SO INSPIRED BY YOU.
  • 00:18:48.110 --> 00:18:51.020
  • BUT IT'S THAT PRINCIPLE THAT THE SEEDS YOU'RE
  • 00:18:51.040 --> 00:18:53.260
  • SOWING, EVERY TIME YOU'RE DOING THING MAYBE
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:58.020
  • YOU'RE GOING TO RECEIVE THE HARVEST OR MAYBE YOUR
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:18:59.230
  • CHILDREN ARE GOING TO RECEIVE THE HARVEST, BUT
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:01.160
  • EVERY GOOD DEED YOU DO, EVERY TIME YOU HONOR GOD,
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:04.010
  • EVERY TIME YOU EVEN GET UP AND READ YOUR BIBLE,
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:05.220
  • YOU GO TO CHURCH THAT SUNDAY AND THINK OH, IT'S
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:07.090
  • NOT EVEN MAKING A DIFFERENCE, BUT
  • 00:19:07.110 --> 00:19:08.190
  • YOU'RE SOWING A SEED.
  • 00:19:08.210 --> 00:19:10.030
  • I BELIEVE SOMEWHERE, YOURSELF, YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:12.290
  • MAYBE YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:19:13.010 --> 00:19:15.070
  • LEGACY, AGAIN, BECAUSE AGAIN YOU'RE THE
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:17.270
  • THIRD GENERATION MINISTER,
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:20.230
  • AND SHARE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:23.080
  • - WELL, YOU KNOW MY FATHER NEVER PASTORED A
  • 00:19:23.100 --> 00:19:26.030
  • LARGE CHURCH. HE PASTORED SMALLER CHURCHES.
  • 00:19:26.050 --> 00:19:30.070
  • HE STARTED OUT IN NORTH CAROLINA A LITTLE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:34.060
  • WE LIVED IN A DOUBLE WIDE TRAILER.
  • 00:19:34.080 --> 00:19:36.030
  • THAT WAS THE PARSONAGE AS THEY CALLED IT.
  • 00:19:36.050 --> 00:19:39.100
  • - YOU HAD A DOUBLE WIDE?
  • 00:19:39.120 --> 00:19:40.260
  • - DOUBLE WIDE.
  • 00:19:40.280 --> 00:19:42.060
  • - COME ON!
  • 00:19:42.080 --> 00:19:45.050
  • - AND HE, TO STAY IN MINISTRY, HIS NAME WAS
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:47.250
  • BILL, BILLY FRANKLIN, AND HE HAD A LITTLE PICKUP
  • 00:19:47.270 --> 00:19:51.100
  • TRUCK, AND IT HAD A LITTLE CAMPER ON THE
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:53.020
  • BACK, AND HE HAD TAKEN SOME PAINT AND HE PUT
  • 00:19:53.040 --> 00:19:56.170
  • "BILL'S MEALS ON WHEELS."
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:19:58.210
  • AND MY MOTHER WOULD COOK BISCUITS, SAUSAGE
  • 00:19:58.230 --> 00:20:00.250
  • BISCUIT, HOMEMADE BISCUITS IN OUR KITCHEN
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:03.160
  • AND WRAP THEM IN ALUMINUM FOIL OR WHATEVER, AND HE
  • 00:20:03.180 --> 00:20:08.020
  • WOULD GET AS MANY AS HE COULD AND GO TO THE
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:10.220
  • FACTORY THERE AND SELL THEM IN THE MORNING TO
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:13.080
  • STAY IN THE MINISTRY.
  • 00:20:13.100 --> 00:20:14.210
  • WE DID THAT EVERY MORNING. HE WOULD
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.060
  • DO THAT EVERY MORNING SELLING THOSE BISCUITS.
  • 00:20:16.080 --> 00:20:19.100
  • SO WHEN I SEE HOW GOD HAS BLESSED US AND HELPED US,
  • 00:20:19.120 --> 00:20:22.140
  • I REALLY BELIEVE THAT THAT SCRIPTURE I'M
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:26.100
  • DRINKING FROM WELLS THAT I DIDN'T DIG, EATING FROM
  • 00:20:26.120 --> 00:20:30.010
  • VINEYARDS THAT I DIDN'T PLANT, AND GOD
  • 00:20:30.030 --> 00:20:32.190
  • IS WANTING TO DO THE SAME THING IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:20:32.210 --> 00:20:35.020
  • PHIL WROTE AN AMAZING BOOK ON LEGACY, AND ONE
  • 00:20:35.040 --> 00:20:37.150
  • OF THE MOST POWERFUL POINTS HE MAKES IN THAT IS
  • 00:20:37.170 --> 00:20:40.220
  • EVERY DEED PRODUCES A SEED.
  • 00:20:40.240 --> 00:20:45.170
  • THAT REALLY IMPACTED ME TO THINK THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:48.220
  • I'M DOING NOW IS GONNA HAVE AN IMPACT, GOOD OR
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:51.280
  • BAD, ON MY CHILDREN AND MY CHILDREN'S CHILDREN.
  • 00:20:52.000 --> 00:20:56.030
  • SO HERE WE SIT AND WE'VE GOT TO DO OUR PART.
  • 00:20:56.050 --> 00:21:00.170
  • WE'VE GOT TO TAKE THE BATON AND RUN.
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:02.220
  • BUT CERTAINLY GOD WANTS TO BLESS US.
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:05.130
  • EVERY GENERATION THERE OUGHT TO BE A PERPETUAL
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:08.080
  • MOVING AND TAKING OF THE LAND, SO TO SPEAK, AND
  • 00:21:08.100 --> 00:21:11.130
  • DOING MORE THAN THE GENERATION BEFORE.
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:13.160
  • - YEAH, I SO BELIEVE THAT JENTZEN.
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:14.290
  • WE SHARED EARLIER WHEN I TOOK OVER FROM MY
  • 00:21:15.010 --> 00:21:17.260
  • PARENTS, I HAD NEVER REALLY MINISTERED BEFORE
  • 00:21:17.280 --> 00:21:20.170
  • AND I WAS NERVOUS AND INSECURE AND I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:22.170
  • THAT I KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING, BUT GOD GIVES YOU
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:24.140
  • GRACE FOR EVERY SEASON.
  • 00:21:24.160 --> 00:21:26.020
  • BUT PEOPLE WOULD ASK ME DO YOU THINK YOU COULD
  • 00:21:26.040 --> 00:21:28.070
  • KEEP THE CHURCH GOING?
  • 00:21:28.090 --> 00:21:30.010
  • AND I NEVER SAID THIS ARROGANTLY, NOT AT ALL,
  • 00:21:30.030 --> 00:21:31.280
  • I SAID IT IN HUMILITY BUT THERE WAS SOMETHING ON
  • 00:21:32.000 --> 00:21:33.220
  • THE INSIDE OF ME, IT WAS JUST A FAITH, JUST
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:35.150
  • SOMETHING GOD PUT THERE.
  • 00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:37.090
  • I KNEW IT WAS RIGHT BUT I'D SAID NO, I DON'T BELIEVE
  • 00:21:37.110 --> 00:21:39.160
  • I CAN KEEP IT GOING, I BELIEVE WE CAN GO FURTHER.
  • 00:21:39.180 --> 00:21:42.160
  • I BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTS EVERY GENERATION TO INCREASE.
  • 00:21:42.180 --> 00:21:45.250
  • AND NO MATTER HOW FAR YOUR PARENTS HAVE GONE OR
  • 00:21:45.270 --> 00:21:48.260
  • NOT GONE, GOD WANTS YOU TO TAKE IT AND GO FURTHER.
  • 00:21:48.280 --> 00:21:51.130
  • I THINK ABOUT HOW MY FATHER PASTORED A CHURCH
  • 00:21:51.150 --> 00:21:54.230
  • FOR 40 YEARS, SO I STARTED 40 YEARS DOWN THE
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:57.120
  • ROAD. I SHOULD GO FURTHER.
  • 00:21:57.140 --> 00:21:59.100
  • I HAVE ALL MY FATHER IN ME, ALL MY GRANDPARENTS
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:01.180
  • IN ME, SO I DON'T BELIEVE, I BELIEVE WE
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:04.130
  • SHOULD BE CONTENT WHERE WE ARE BUT--
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:05.240
  • - BUT YOU SAY THAT BUT YOUR FATHER DIDN'T BUILD
  • 00:22:05.260 --> 00:22:09.210
  • A LITTLE MINISTRY.
  • 00:22:09.230 --> 00:22:11.030
  • THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF DIFFERENCE IN OUR STORY.
  • 00:22:11.050 --> 00:22:13.190
  • YOUR FATHER HAD BUILT A LARGE CHURCH THERE, A
  • 00:22:13.210 --> 00:22:17.040
  • WORLDWIDE KNOWN CHURCH, AND A WORLDWIDE
  • 00:22:17.060 --> 00:22:20.270
  • TELEVISION MINISTRY, AND YET GOD THROUGH HIS
  • 00:22:20.290 --> 00:22:24.100
  • GRACE, YOU AND VICTORIA AND YOUR FAMILY AND TEAM
  • 00:22:24.120 --> 00:22:27.290
  • HAVE TAKEN IT BEYOND ANYTHING YOUR FATHER
  • 00:22:28.010 --> 00:22:30.270
  • COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED.
  • 00:22:30.290 --> 00:22:32.200
  • I REMEMBER THAT FIRST SERVICE AFTER YOUR FATHER
  • 00:22:32.220 --> 00:22:38.010
  • DIED BECAUSE I WAS SO CONNECTED TO HIM.
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:40.010
  • I DIDN'T KNOW YOU THAT WELL, BUT I WAS
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:41.250
  • CONNECTED TO YOUR FATHER.
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:45.160
  • I WAS SO USED TO SEEING HIM EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT.
  • 00:22:45.180 --> 00:22:48.110
  • AND WHEN HE WASN'T THERE SUDDENLY, BECAUSE HE DIED
  • 00:22:48.130 --> 00:22:50.150
  • PRETTY SUDDENLY, AND I'LL NEVER FORGET WHEN THE
  • 00:22:50.170 --> 00:22:54.130
  • NEWS ANNOUNCED THAT YOU WERE GONNA BE SPEAKING
  • 00:22:54.150 --> 00:22:57.200
  • AND THE FIRST TIME THAT I SAW YOU SPEAK, I WEPT.
  • 00:22:57.220 --> 00:23:02.170
  • I JUST WEPT. I THOUGHT LORD, HAVE MERCY,
  • 00:23:02.190 --> 00:23:04.210
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ON HIM.
  • 00:23:04.230 --> 00:23:07.000
  • THERE'S SOMETHING UNUSUAL ON HIM.
  • 00:23:07.020 --> 00:23:09.130
  • IT WAS SO EVIDENT.
  • 00:23:09.150 --> 00:23:11.060
  • AND YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT WE NEED TO LOSE THAT--
  • 00:23:11.080 --> 00:23:16.220
  • AND I WAS SAYING THIS TO SOMEONE EARLIER, THE
  • 00:23:16.240 --> 00:23:20.110
  • WHOLE THING OF IF THE FATHER DID GREAT, IT'S
  • 00:23:20.130 --> 00:23:23.210
  • ALMOST BEEN IN THE BODY OF CHRIST THE SONS AND
  • 00:23:23.230 --> 00:23:26.100
  • THE NEXT GENERATION WILL REALLY STRUGGLE JUST
  • 00:23:26.120 --> 00:23:29.180
  • WRESTLING WITH THE WHOLE THING OF HOW CAN I EVER
  • 00:23:29.200 --> 00:23:33.180
  • COMPETE? HOW CAN I EVER STEP INTO THOSE SHOES?
  • 00:23:33.200 --> 00:23:35.290
  • THOSE SHOES ARE SO BIG.
  • 00:23:36.010 --> 00:23:38.010
  • BUT GOLIATH NEVER WENT IN THE NURSERY WHERE
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:41.220
  • BABY GOLIATH WAS AND SAW A DWARF.
  • 00:23:41.240 --> 00:23:45.140
  • HE SAW A BIG BABY THAT WAS GONNA BE JUST AS BIG
  • 00:23:45.160 --> 00:23:49.180
  • AS HE WAS BECAUSE A GREAT DANES NEVER GIVES
  • 00:23:49.200 --> 00:23:53.060
  • BIRTH TO A CHIHUAHUA.
  • 00:23:53.080 --> 00:23:55.150
  • AND WE NEED TO CHANGE OUR THINKING THAT IF YOU HAVE
  • 00:23:55.170 --> 00:23:57.190
  • A GREAT PRAYER WARRIOR IN YOUR FAMILY AND THEY'VE
  • 00:23:57.210 --> 00:23:59.240
  • GONE ON TO BE WITH THE LORD IN HEAVEN, THAT
  • 00:23:59.260 --> 00:24:02.070
  • MANTLE FELL TO YOU, AND NOW YOU'RE TO DO DOUBLE.
  • 00:24:02.090 --> 00:24:05.110
  • IT'S AN UNBIBLICAL, IT'S REALLY FALSE HUMILITY TO
  • 00:24:05.130 --> 00:24:08.180
  • SAY OH, IF I COULD JUST LIVE UP TO MY DADDY'S
  • 00:24:08.200 --> 00:24:11.100
  • FAITH, IF I COULD JUST LIVE UP TO MY MOTHER'S
  • 00:24:11.120 --> 00:24:13.230
  • PRAYER LIFE. THAT'S REALLY FALSE HUMILITY.
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:17.120
  • THAT'S NOT A BIBLICAL PRAYER BECAUSE ELISHA
  • 00:24:17.140 --> 00:24:19.250
  • SAID HE HAD NEVER PERFORMED A MIRACLE.
  • 00:24:19.270 --> 00:24:22.040
  • ALL HE HAD EVER DONE WAS POUR WATER ON PEOPLE'S
  • 00:24:22.060 --> 00:24:24.140
  • HANDS AND GUESS WHAT HE SAID?
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:26.060
  • FIRST THING HE SAID, I WANT DOUBLE WHAT MY
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:28.200
  • SPIRITUAL FATHER HAS. I WANT DOUBLE!
  • 00:24:28.220 --> 00:24:31.000
  • MAKE MINE A DOUBLE.
  • 00:24:31.020 --> 00:24:32.220
  • AND THIS GENERATION NEEDS TO LOOK, YOUR KIDS AND
  • 00:24:32.240 --> 00:24:35.110
  • MY KIDS AND OTHER GENERATIONS NEED TO
  • 00:24:35.130 --> 00:24:37.100
  • UNDERSTAND IT'S NOT US. IT'S THE GOD THAT
  • 00:24:37.120 --> 00:24:39.240
  • WE SERVE, AND HE'S EXCEEDING GREATNESS.
  • 00:24:39.260 --> 00:24:42.080
  • HE'S EXCEEDING GREATNESS.
  • 00:24:42.100 --> 00:24:44.030
  • AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE FULFILLING, JOEL.
  • 00:24:44.050 --> 00:24:46.140
  • AND YOUR FATHER TOOK IT ON HIS RACE
  • 00:24:46.160 --> 00:24:50.000
  • AS FAR AS HE COULD GO.
  • 00:24:50.020 --> 00:24:51.150
  • BUT HERE WE ARE IN THE STADIUM, ABOUT TO HAVE AN
  • 00:24:51.170 --> 00:24:54.110
  • EVENT IN SEPTEMBER THAT'S GONNA CHANGE THE CITY AND
  • 00:24:54.130 --> 00:24:57.180
  • CHANGE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES, AND IT'S GOD
  • 00:24:57.200 --> 00:25:01.150
  • SAYING I'M HONORING THE FAITHFULNESS OF DODIE,
  • 00:25:01.170 --> 00:25:05.290
  • AND I'M HONORING THE FAITHFULNESS OF YOUR
  • 00:25:06.010 --> 00:25:08.200
  • FATHER, BUT THIS IS YOUR SEASON, AND THIS IS YOUR
  • 00:25:08.220 --> 00:25:11.260
  • JOURNEY, AND RUN IT WITH PASSION BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:25:11.280 --> 00:25:14.080
  • GONNA DO GREATER THINGS THAN THESE.
  • 00:25:14.100 --> 00:25:16.070
  • JESUS EVEN SAID THAT.
  • 00:25:16.090 --> 00:25:17.170
  • GREATER THINGS THAN THESE SHALL YOU DO BECAUSE I'M
  • 00:25:17.190 --> 00:25:20.090
  • GOING THROUGH THE FATHER.
  • 00:25:20.110 --> 00:25:21.250
  • - I LOVE THAT! WE TAKE THE LIMITS OFF OF GOD.
  • 00:25:21.270 --> 00:25:24.180
  • HE'S DONE IT FOR OUR PARENTS, FOUR OUR FAMILY
  • 00:25:24.200 --> 00:25:26.170
  • BUT HE CAN DO GREATER THINGS FOR US.
  • 00:25:26.190 --> 00:25:28.100
  • BISHOP BRONNER, WE'RE BLESSED TO HAVE YOU HERE.
  • 00:25:28.120 --> 00:25:30.230
  • YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAVE BEEN SUCH A BLESSING TO
  • 00:25:30.250 --> 00:25:32.210
  • US. FROM THE DAY I GOT TO KNOW YOU, YOU ALWAYS
  • 00:25:32.230 --> 00:25:34.200
  • MAKE US BETTER. YOU'RE SO ELOQUENT.
  • 00:25:34.220 --> 00:25:36.190
  • BUT WE ARE WERE TALKING EARLIER, WE DID A RADIO
  • 00:25:36.210 --> 00:25:38.140
  • PROGRAM EARLIER WITH THESE GENTLEMEN AND HAD A GREAT
  • 00:25:38.160 --> 00:25:41.170
  • TIME BUT SOME OF THE THINGS WE WERE TALKING
  • 00:25:41.190 --> 00:25:43.060
  • ABOUT, JUST THE LEGACY, SHARE SOME OF THAT AS WELL.
  • 00:25:43.080 --> 00:25:45.200
  • - I CAME FROM A LINE OF PREACHERS ON MY MOTHER'S
  • 00:25:45.220 --> 00:25:48.230
  • SIDE OF THE FAMILY AND A LINE OF BUSINESSMEN FROM
  • 00:25:48.250 --> 00:25:50.230
  • MY FATHER'S SIDE.
  • 00:25:50.250 --> 00:25:52.160
  • ABOUT FOUR GENERATIONS DEEP ON BOTH SIDE.
  • 00:25:52.180 --> 00:25:54.180
  • AND I WAS IN A PLACE WHERE I DIDN'T HONESTLY
  • 00:25:54.200 --> 00:25:57.040
  • FEEL THAT I NEEDED TO MAKE A DECISION BETWEEN
  • 00:25:57.060 --> 00:25:59.140
  • GOD OR MONEY. I JUST HAD TO DECIDE
  • 00:25:59.160 --> 00:26:01.290
  • WHICH ONE I WAS GOING TO SERVE.
  • 00:26:02.010 --> 00:26:03.270
  • AND I MADE THAT DECISION REALLY REALLY EARLY.
  • 00:26:03.290 --> 00:26:06.000
  • AND I WOULD TELL ANYBODY IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE
  • 00:26:06.020 --> 00:26:09.000
  • BETWEEN BEING SPIRITUAL AND RICH OR SPIRITUAL AND
  • 00:26:09.020 --> 00:26:12.050
  • POOR, CHOOSE SPIRITUAL AND RICH BECAUSE YOU CAN
  • 00:26:12.070 --> 00:26:14.250
  • DO MORE FOR GOD.
  • 00:26:14.270 --> 00:26:17.070
  • AND IT DOESN'T HAVE TO COMPROMISE YOUR PRAYER
  • 00:26:17.090 --> 00:26:19.000
  • LIFE, YOUR FAITH TO BELIEVE.
  • 00:26:19.020 --> 00:26:21.010
  • GOD TOOK ABRAHAM OUT OF AN ENVIRONMENT AND TOLD
  • 00:26:21.030 --> 00:26:24.130
  • HIM TO JUST LOOK UP INTO THE HEAVENS, AND WHAT HE SAW
  • 00:26:24.150 --> 00:26:27.140
  • THERE WAS SO SPECTACULAR, IT WAS INCALCULABLE.
  • 00:26:27.160 --> 00:26:31.180
  • THE NUMBER OF STARS THAT HE SAW WAS IN INESTIMABLE.
  • 00:26:31.200 --> 00:26:34.200
  • IT'S WHAT SCIENTISTS HAVE SAID THERE ARE TEN
  • 00:26:34.220 --> 00:26:38.000
  • SEXTILLION STARS, AND THAT'S A LOT OF STARS.
  • 00:26:38.020 --> 00:26:43.050
  • PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND JUST THE CONCEPT OF THAT.
  • 00:26:43.070 --> 00:26:45.080
  • WE KNOW WHAT A MILLION IS BUT A THOUSAND MILLION IS
  • 00:26:45.100 --> 00:26:47.140
  • A BILLION; A THOUSAND BILLION IS A TRILLION; A
  • 00:26:47.160 --> 00:26:50.220
  • THOUSAND TRILLION IS A QUADRILLION; A THOUSAND
  • 00:26:50.240 --> 00:26:53.060
  • QUADRILLION IS A QUINTILLION; AND A
  • 00:26:53.080 --> 00:26:55.140
  • THOUSAND QUINTILLION IS A SEXTILLION.
  • 00:26:55.160 --> 00:26:58.110
  • THEN THERE ARE TEN SEXTILLION STARS.
  • 00:26:58.130 --> 00:27:02.060
  • GOD SAYS YOU SEE THAT?
  • 00:27:02.080 --> 00:27:03.200
  • SO SHALL YOUR SEED BE, THE IMPACT OF WHAT'S
  • 00:27:03.220 --> 00:27:05.250
  • GONNA COME OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:27:05.270 --> 00:27:07.110
  • AND WHO COULD IMAGINE THAT?
  • 00:27:07.130 --> 00:27:09.000
  • SOMEBODY WHO WAS BARREN, WHO HAD ONE AT THAT TIME
  • 00:27:09.020 --> 00:27:11.280
  • ONE ILLEGITIMATE CHILD THAT WAS NOT THE CHILD,
  • 00:27:12.000 --> 00:27:15.170
  • THE SON OF FAITH THAT CAME AS A RESULT OF HIS
  • 00:27:15.190 --> 00:27:18.220
  • IMPATIENCE. AND WE'VE ALL GONE THROUGH THAT.
  • 00:27:18.240 --> 00:27:20.210
  • TO ME, EVERY DREAM MUST PASS THE TEST OF
  • 00:27:20.230 --> 00:27:24.070
  • DISCOURAGEMENT, IF WHEN WE FELT LIKE WE'VE GOTTEN
  • 00:27:24.090 --> 00:27:26.240
  • TOO OLD AND GOD CAN YOU DO ANYTHING IN MY LIFE NOW?
  • 00:27:26.260 --> 00:27:29.150
  • BUT GOD'S GRACE IS YOU'RE A TESTAMENT OF THAT.
  • 00:27:29.170 --> 00:27:32.220
  • IT'S AMAZING TO SEE HOW MOSES HAD ONE GRACE AND
  • 00:27:32.240 --> 00:27:37.090
  • ANOINTING, AND JOSHUA HAD A DIFFERENT.
  • 00:27:37.110 --> 00:27:39.080
  • THEY'RE TWO DIFFERENT LEADERSHIP STYLES.
  • 00:27:39.100 --> 00:27:41.100
  • MOSES WAS A DIPLOMAT. HE WAS A NEGOTIATOR.
  • 00:27:41.120 --> 00:27:43.170
  • JOSHUA WAS A WARRIOR.
  • 00:27:43.190 --> 00:27:45.180
  • ELIJAH WAS A VERY WILD MAN. HE WAS A MAN OF
  • 00:27:45.200 --> 00:27:49.130
  • THE FIELD EATING LOCUST AND WILD HONEY.
  • 00:27:49.150 --> 00:27:51.050
  • ELISHA WAS VERY REFINED.
  • 00:27:51.070 --> 00:27:53.090
  • YOUR DAD WAS VERY FIERY.
  • 00:27:53.110 --> 00:27:54.260
  • YOU'RE VERY CONVERSATIONAL.
  • 00:27:54.280 --> 00:27:56.200
  • BUT IT'S THE TYPE OF MINISTRY THAT THE
  • 00:27:56.220 --> 00:27:59.120
  • GENERATION WHERE YOU LIVE NOW IS ABLE TO
  • 00:27:59.140 --> 00:28:03.030
  • SO POWERFULLY CONNECT.
  • 00:28:03.050 --> 00:28:04.210
  • IT'S AMAZING HOW GOD DOES EVERYTHING IN ITS TIME.
  • 00:28:04.230 --> 00:28:08.110
  • AND WE'RE ALL PRODUCTS OF THAT.
  • 00:28:08.130 --> 00:28:10.130
  • I'M A PRODUCT OF THAT, YOU'RE A PRODUCT OF THAT,
  • 00:28:10.150 --> 00:28:12.220
  • EACH OF US IS A PRODUCT OF GOD DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:28:12.240 --> 00:28:16.100
  • SPECIAL IN TIME, AND THE LEGACY THAT GOD DOES IS
  • 00:28:16.120 --> 00:28:19.180
  • NEVER ABOUT THE PAST.
  • 00:28:19.200 --> 00:28:21.060
  • LEGACY IS ALWAYS ABOUT THE FUTURE.
  • 00:28:21.080 --> 00:28:23.070
  • IT IS TAKING THE THINGS WE'VE LEARNED FROM THE
  • 00:28:23.090 --> 00:28:25.050
  • PAST THAT EMPOWER OUR FUTURE AND HELPING US TO
  • 00:28:25.070 --> 00:28:27.160
  • BECOME MUCH MORE THAN WE COULD HAVE EVER BEEN.
  • 00:28:27.180 --> 00:28:29.230
  • - THAT'S SO GOOD, BISHOP.
  • 00:28:29.250 --> 00:28:31.110
  • I LOVED EARLIER WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:28:31.130 --> 00:28:34.080
  • FATHER AND THE FOCUS, AND THAT'S SUCH GOOD
  • 00:28:34.100 --> 00:28:36.000
  • ENCOURAGEMENT. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THAT A
  • 00:28:36.020 --> 00:28:37.100
  • LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR FATHER?
  • 00:28:37.120 --> 00:28:38.270
  • - SURE. MY DAD WAS, HE WAS WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE
  • 00:28:38.290 --> 00:28:42.180
  • AN EXCEPTIONAL MAN.
  • 00:28:42.200 --> 00:28:44.040
  • HE DIDN'T START HIS FAMILY UNTIL HE WAS 40
  • 00:28:44.060 --> 00:28:45.180
  • YEARS OLD, BUT HE STARTED HIS BUSINESS BACK IN
  • 00:28:45.200 --> 00:28:48.090
  • 1947, SO THIS IS OUR 70TH YEAR IN BUSINESS.
  • 00:28:48.110 --> 00:28:52.140
  • HE WAS A VERY AVERAGE PERSON THAT CAME FROM THE
  • 00:28:52.160 --> 00:28:54.230
  • COUNTRY WITH 18 DOLLARS AND 23 CENTS IN HIS
  • 00:28:54.250 --> 00:28:57.040
  • POCKET AND A DREAM.
  • 00:28:57.060 --> 00:28:58.280
  • HE HAD A DREAM IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:28:59.000 --> 00:29:01.040
  • AND HE WOULD LISTEN TO MINISTRY.
  • 00:29:01.060 --> 00:29:02.230
  • MY DAD WAS A FAITHFUL DEACON IN OUR LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:29:02.250 --> 00:29:05.010
  • HE SUPPORTED OUR PASTORS AND WHAT WE DISCOVERED,
  • 00:29:05.030 --> 00:29:08.240
  • I LEARNED FROM HIM THAT WHAT YOU HELP OTHERS DO,
  • 00:29:08.260 --> 00:29:11.080
  • GOD WILL HELP YOU TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:29:11.100 --> 00:29:12.240
  • GREAT IN REALIZING YOUR OWN DREAM IN YOUR OWN
  • 00:29:12.260 --> 00:29:15.080
  • LIFE, BUT MY FATHER WAS NOT AN EXCEPTIONAL MAN.
  • 00:29:15.100 --> 00:29:19.070
  • HE CONSIDERED HIMSELF TO BE AN AVERAGE MAN BUT AN
  • 00:29:19.090 --> 00:29:22.230
  • EXCEPTIONAL MAN IS AN AVERAGE MAN FOCUSED.
  • 00:29:22.250 --> 00:29:26.020
  • AND WHAT HAD MY DAD FOCUSED?
  • 00:29:26.040 --> 00:29:28.030
  • MY DAD WHEN HE LEFT THE COUNTRY, HE CHANGED HIS
  • 00:29:28.050 --> 00:29:31.020
  • HAT. HIS HABITS, HIS ASSOCIATIONS AND HIS
  • 00:29:31.040 --> 00:29:35.100
  • THOUGHTS. WHEN MY MOTHER WAS PREGNANT WITH ME, MY
  • 00:29:35.120 --> 00:29:39.080
  • DAD WAS LAID UP IN THE HOSPITAL WITH A MASSIVE
  • 00:29:39.100 --> 00:29:41.090
  • HEART ATTACK. HE CHANGED HIS HABITS OF EATING,
  • 00:29:41.110 --> 00:29:43.090
  • EXERCISE, HIS SPIRITUALITY.
  • 00:29:43.110 --> 00:29:46.130
  • HE CHANGED HIS HABITS.
  • 00:29:46.150 --> 00:29:48.050
  • THEN HE CHANGED HIS ASSOCIATION.
  • 00:29:48.070 --> 00:29:49.240
  • HE GOT AROUND OTHER PEOPLE WHO WANTED
  • 00:29:49.260 --> 00:29:51.050
  • SOMETHING OUT OF LIFE.
  • 00:29:51.070 --> 00:29:52.200
  • HE GOT AROUND ENCOURAGING PEOPLE, SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:29:52.220 --> 00:29:55.010
  • PEOPLE, NOT THE DRAINERS BUT THOSE THAT ENCOURAGES
  • 00:29:55.030 --> 00:29:57.160
  • AND EMPOWERED HIM.
  • 00:29:57.180 --> 00:29:59.100
  • AND HE CHANGED HIS THOUGHTS.
  • 00:29:59.120 --> 00:30:01.030
  • HE LOVED POSITIVE, HE USED TO WATCH ROBERT
  • 00:30:01.050 --> 00:30:04.060
  • SCHULLER. YOU WEREN'T ON THEN.
  • 00:30:04.080 --> 00:30:05.210
  • HE WOULD HAVE WATCHED YOU.
  • 00:30:05.230 --> 00:30:07.160
  • BUT WE WATCHED YOUR DAD.
  • 00:30:07.180 --> 00:30:09.040
  • WE LOVED HIS ENERGY, HIS FIRE, HIS PASSION, BUT HE
  • 00:30:09.060 --> 00:30:13.020
  • LOVED THE TYPES OF THINGS THAT HELPED US TO BELIEVE
  • 00:30:13.040 --> 00:30:15.170
  • YOU CAN DO THIS.
  • 00:30:15.190 --> 00:30:17.040
  • THIS IS WITHIN YOUR GRASP.
  • 00:30:17.060 --> 00:30:19.140
  • AND SO THOSE WERE THE THINGS THAT ACTUALLY
  • 00:30:19.160 --> 00:30:22.050
  • FOCUSED MY DAD. HIS HABITS.
  • 00:30:22.070 --> 00:30:24.130
  • HE WAS VERY FOCUSED IN HIS HABITS, IN
  • 00:30:24.150 --> 00:30:26.170
  • ASSOCIATIONS OF WHOM HE ALLOWED IN HIS INNER
  • 00:30:26.190 --> 00:30:29.130
  • CIRCLE BECAUSE THE FIVE CLOSEST PEOPLE TO YOU
  • 00:30:29.150 --> 00:30:31.080
  • WILL DETERMINE YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS.
  • 00:30:31.100 --> 00:30:33.220
  • AND HE CHANGED THOSE ASSOCIATIONS AND THEN HE
  • 00:30:33.240 --> 00:30:37.000
  • CHANGED THE THOUGHTS.
  • 00:30:37.020 --> 00:30:38.240
  • HE GOT RID OF NEGATIVE THINKING THAT MADE HIM
  • 00:30:38.260 --> 00:30:41.070
  • FEEL NEGATIVELY, AND HE BEGAN TO THINK THOUGHTS
  • 00:30:41.090 --> 00:30:44.100
  • OF PEACE, THE SAME KIND OF THOUGHTS JEREMIAH 29:11
  • 00:30:44.120 --> 00:30:47.200
  • SAYS GOD THINKS TOWARDS US.
  • 00:30:47.220 --> 00:30:49.150
  • HE THINKS THOSE THOUGHTS AND IT EMPOWERED AND
  • 00:30:49.170 --> 00:30:51.170
  • CHANGED HIS LIFE.
  • 00:30:51.190 --> 00:30:52.240
  • - THAT'S AWESOME. GO AHEAD.
  • 00:30:52.260 --> 00:30:54.260

  • HOME HERE ON SEPTEMBER THE 30TH.
  • 00:33:03.140 --> 00:33:04.290
  • BUT BISHOP BRONNER, YOU SAID SOMETHING EARLIER SO
  • 00:33:05.010 --> 00:33:07.090
  • IMPORTANT, THE FIVE CLOSEST PEOPLE TO YOU
  • 00:33:07.110 --> 00:33:10.220
  • WILL DETERMINE YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS.
  • 00:33:10.240 --> 00:33:12.250
  • SOMETHING I'VE LEARNED AND THEN MAKE YOU CAN
  • 00:33:12.270 --> 00:33:14.170
  • SHARE ON IT, I'VE LEARNED IF YOU DON'T GET THE
  • 00:33:14.190 --> 00:33:17.060
  • WRONG PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR LIFE, THE RIGHT PEOPLE
  • 00:33:17.080 --> 00:33:19.170
  • WILL NEVER SHOW UP.
  • 00:33:19.190 --> 00:33:21.160
  • SOMETIMES WE THINK JOEL THESE FRIENDS, I KNOW
  • 00:33:21.180 --> 00:33:23.230
  • THEY'RE DRAGGING ME DOWN, I KNOW THEY'RE KEEPING ME
  • 00:33:23.250 --> 00:33:26.100
  • FROM BEING MY BEST, BUT I DON'T WANT TO HURT THEIR
  • 00:33:26.120 --> 00:33:28.230
  • FEELINGS OR I MAY NOT HAVE ANY FRIENDS IF I
  • 00:33:28.250 --> 00:33:30.290
  • MAKE SOME CHANGES, BUT I'VE LEARNED THIS, YOU
  • 00:33:31.010 --> 00:33:34.050
  • MAY GO THROUGH A SEASON OF BEING LONELY BUT GOD
  • 00:33:34.070 --> 00:33:37.110
  • WILL ALWAYS BRING YOU BETTER FRIENDS, HE'LL
  • 00:33:37.130 --> 00:33:39.090
  • BRING YOU THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE, AND
  • 00:33:39.110 --> 00:33:41.080
  • I DON'T THINK THAT YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOME BIG
  • 00:33:41.100 --> 00:33:43.100
  • ANNOUNCEMENT AND SAY YOU KNOW WHAT I'M NEVER GONNA
  • 00:33:43.120 --> 00:33:45.210
  • ASSOCIATE WITH YOU, YOU JUST DO IT GRADUALLY.
  • 00:33:45.230 --> 00:33:47.210
  • LESS AND LESS TIME WITH THEM.
  • 00:33:47.230 --> 00:33:49.190
  • AND I THINK WHEN YOU DO THAT, ANOTHER THOUGHT ON
  • 00:33:49.210 --> 00:33:53.050
  • THAT IS SOMETIMES WE THINK WE WANT TO
  • 00:33:53.070 --> 00:33:56.030
  • LIFT PEOPLE UP.
  • 00:33:56.050 --> 00:33:58.010
  • WE ALL BELIEVE IN LET'S HELPING PEOPLE, BUT AT
  • 00:33:58.030 --> 00:34:00.100
  • SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO SAY THEY ARE DRAGGING
  • 00:34:00.120 --> 00:34:03.040
  • ME DOWN MORE THAN I'M LIFTING THEM UP.
  • 00:34:03.060 --> 00:34:06.080
  • IF THEY'RE STILL CAUSING YOU TO COMPROMISE, LIFE
  • 00:34:06.100 --> 00:34:08.060
  • IT TOO SHORT TO HANG AROUND WITH PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:34:08.080 --> 00:34:10.150
  • ARE CONSTANTLY DRAINING YOUR ENERGY AND MAKING
  • 00:34:10.170 --> 00:34:12.240
  • YOU COMPROMISE, MAKING YOU GO BACK INTO THE
  • 00:34:12.260 --> 00:34:15.040
  • OLD PATH WHERE YOU DON'T WANT TO GO.
  • 00:34:15.060 --> 00:34:17.140
  • I'M NOT SAYING THIS IS EASY, BUT I'M SAYING YOUR
  • 00:34:17.160 --> 00:34:20.100
  • DESTINY IS TOO IMPORTANT TO LET SOMEBODY KEEP YOU
  • 00:34:20.120 --> 00:34:23.100
  • FROM BECOMING ALL GOD'S CREATED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:34:23.120 --> 00:34:25.150
  • AGAIN, YOU CAN BE NICE.
  • 00:34:25.170 --> 00:34:27.000
  • DON'T TELL THEM I SAID TO DO IT, YOU BE NICE BUT
  • 00:34:27.020 --> 00:34:29.030
  • JUST LESS AND LESS.
  • 00:34:29.050 --> 00:34:30.250
  • AND MAYBE IT'S SOMETHING THIS SIMPLE. I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:34:30.270 --> 00:34:33.010
  • SIT AT LUNCH EVERY DAY WITH THIS COWORKERS THAT
  • 00:34:33.030 --> 00:34:36.080
  • GOSSIP AND ARE JEALOUS, OR I'M NOT GONNA HANG
  • 00:34:36.100 --> 00:34:38.260
  • AROUND PEOPLE THAT TALK ABOUT MY PASTOR, OR TALK
  • 00:34:38.280 --> 00:34:40.280
  • ABOUT MY CHURCH, OR TALK ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE,
  • 00:34:41.000 --> 00:34:43.110
  • BECAUSE IF THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT THEM,
  • 00:34:43.130 --> 00:34:44.230
  • THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT YOU TOO.
  • 00:34:44.250 --> 00:34:46.010
  • BUT MAYBE YOU NEED TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENT AND
  • 00:34:46.030 --> 00:34:48.010
  • GET SOME EAGLES IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:34:48.030 --> 00:34:49.250
  • THAT'S WHY I HANG AROUND THESE GUYS.
  • 00:34:49.270 --> 00:34:51.060
  • THAT'S WHY I INVITED THEM TODAY.
  • 00:34:51.080 --> 00:34:52.110
  • THEY MAKE ME BETTER. THEY INSPIRE ME.
  • 00:34:52.130 --> 00:34:54.170
  • AND AGAIN, I BELIEVE IN HELPING OTHERS.
  • 00:34:54.190 --> 00:34:57.010
  • THERE'S PEOPLE THAT ARE DOWN.
  • 00:34:57.030 --> 00:34:58.180
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HELP, YOU'VE GOT TO BE THERE TO
  • 00:34:58.200 --> 00:35:00.100
  • LOVE THEM BACK INTO WHOLENESS, BUT I THINK
  • 00:35:00.120 --> 00:35:02.160
  • THERE'S THAT FINE LINE BETWEEN SOMEBODY THAT'S
  • 00:35:02.180 --> 00:35:04.110
  • JUST DRAGGING YOU DOWN AND YOU'RE JUST, MAYBE
  • 00:35:04.130 --> 00:35:07.020
  • IT'S THE EASY WAY OUT, BUT YOU MAKE A
  • 00:35:07.040 --> 00:35:09.080
  • GRADUAL CHANGE AND YOU WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO.
  • 00:35:09.100 --> 00:35:11.110
  • CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT BISHOP.
  • 00:35:11.130 --> 00:35:12.190
  • - I THINK THAT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE.
  • 00:35:12.210 --> 00:35:14.010
  • AND I WOULD REALLY RECOMMEND IN TERMS OF
  • 00:35:14.030 --> 00:35:15.280
  • THAT THE PARETO PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:35:16.000 --> 00:35:17.250
  • SPEND ABOUT 80 PERCENT OF YOUR TIME WITH THOSE
  • 00:35:17.270 --> 00:35:19.240
  • PEOPLE THAT REALLY SPEAK LIFE TO YOU, ENCOURAGE
  • 00:35:19.260 --> 00:35:22.000
  • YOU, BUILD YOU, HELP YOU TO BE ABLE TO GROW, TO
  • 00:35:22.020 --> 00:35:24.160
  • LEARN, TO MATURE IN PARTICULAR THINGS, HELP
  • 00:35:24.180 --> 00:35:27.030
  • YOUR PERSPECTIVE, AND THEN 20 PERCENT POURING
  • 00:35:27.050 --> 00:35:30.120
  • BACK INTO THOSE THAT WE NEED TO LIFT UP.
  • 00:35:30.140 --> 00:35:34.020
  • SO THAT GIVES US SOME SENSE OF PERSPECTIVE OF
  • 00:35:34.040 --> 00:35:37.080
  • WE CAN SAY LET ME DO THIS.
  • 00:35:37.100 --> 00:35:39.100
  • WE CAN ONLY BUILD ON OUR STRENGTHS, SO I SPEND
  • 00:35:39.120 --> 00:35:42.290
  • ABOUT 80 PERCENT OF MY TIME WORKING IN THE AREAS
  • 00:35:43.010 --> 00:35:45.040
  • OF MY STRENGTHS.
  • 00:35:45.060 --> 00:35:46.170
  • I DON'T WANT TO GIVE 80 PERCENT OF MY TIME TO THE
  • 00:35:46.190 --> 00:35:48.170
  • 20 PERCENT OF MY WEAKNESSES THAT DON'T
  • 00:35:48.190 --> 00:35:50.110
  • PRODUCE THE YIELD.
  • 00:35:50.130 --> 00:35:52.030
  • SO I WANT TO SOW INTO THOSE FIELDS AND THEN
  • 00:35:52.050 --> 00:35:55.000
  • WORK ON THE ONES THAT ARE NOT SO GREAT OVER HERE,
  • 00:35:55.020 --> 00:35:57.250
  • BUT THERE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN THE TWO.
  • 00:35:57.270 --> 00:36:01.070
  • BUT I WOULD RECOMMEND 80 PERCENT TO THOSE FOLKS
  • 00:36:01.090 --> 00:36:03.240
  • THAT REALLY HELP TO BUILD YOU AND ENCOURAGE YOU AND
  • 00:36:03.260 --> 00:36:06.090
  • ABOUT 20 PERCENT THAT'S INTO THOSE THAT
  • 00:36:06.110 --> 00:36:08.160
  • WE NEED TO ENCOURAGE.
  • 00:36:08.180 --> 00:36:10.090
  • I WAS DOWN IN LATIN AMERICA, AND I STARTED
  • 00:36:10.110 --> 00:36:12.020
  • ONE OF THE MOST ANOINTED MESSAGES THAT I EVER DID
  • 00:36:12.040 --> 00:36:14.090
  • IN LATIN AMERICA, AND HE STARTED, I TOLD THEM
  • 00:36:14.110 --> 00:36:16.100
  • THESE PRINCIPLES.
  • 00:36:16.120 --> 00:36:18.040
  • [SPEAKING SPANISH]
  • 00:36:18.060 --> 00:36:21.160
  • IT TRANSLATES TO SAY DON'T COMPETE,
  • 00:36:21.180 --> 00:36:24.100
  • DON'T COMPARE AND DON'T COMPLAIN.
  • 00:36:24.120 --> 00:36:26.260
  • AND I TOLD THEM, I SAID I'M ALLERGIC TO
  • 00:36:26.280 --> 00:36:29.090
  • COMPLAINING PEOPLE.
  • 00:36:29.110 --> 00:36:32.020
  • IT MAKES ME IN THE SPIRIT BREAK OUT IN HIVES.
  • 00:36:32.040 --> 00:36:34.230
  • IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL BUT IF YOU'RE ALLERGIC TO
  • 00:36:34.250 --> 00:36:37.280
  • SOMETHING, IF YOU'RE ALLERGIC TO SOMETHING,
  • 00:36:38.000 --> 00:36:39.280
  • THERE'S CERTAIN THINGS THAT FEED OUR FAITH,
  • 00:36:40.000 --> 00:36:41.270
  • BUT THEN THERE ARE SOME THINGS IF YOU BRING IT
  • 00:36:41.290 --> 00:36:44.020
  • INTO A PURE SYSTEM, IF YOU IMBIBE, YOU OPEN YOUR
  • 00:36:44.040 --> 00:36:47.090
  • HEART IMBIBE A SPIRIT AND IT CAN MAKE YOU
  • 00:36:47.110 --> 00:36:50.000
  • THEN BREAK OUT.
  • 00:36:50.020 --> 00:36:51.120
  • SO WHEN NEGATIVE PEOPLE GET WITH OTHER NEGATIVE
  • 00:36:51.140 --> 00:36:53.040
  • PEOPLE, IT'S CONTAGIOUS IN THE SAME WAY JOYOUS
  • 00:36:53.060 --> 00:36:56.160
  • LAUGHTER IS CONTAGIOUS. SMILING IS CONTAGIOUS.
  • 00:36:56.180 --> 00:37:00.040
  • SO I WANT SOMEBODY WHO HAS SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:37:00.060 --> 00:37:01.290
  • REALLY GOING TO INFECT ME WITH SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:37:02.010 --> 00:37:04.120
  • GONNA MAKE ME BETTER.
  • 00:37:04.140 --> 00:37:05.270
  • - JENTZEN, I'VE HEARD YOU SPEAK ON FURNACE
  • 00:37:05.290 --> 00:37:07.220
  • RELATIONSHIPS. SHARE IN THAT AS WELL.
  • 00:37:07.240 --> 00:37:10.010
  • - WELL, ONE THING THAT WILL REVEAL WHO YOUR
  • 00:37:10.030 --> 00:37:12.290
  • FRIENDS ARE, TROUBLE.
  • 00:37:13.010 --> 00:37:16.060
  • BECAUSE THE FALSE FRIENDS, THE FAKE FRIENDS
  • 00:37:16.080 --> 00:37:20.000
  • WILL EXIT THE SHIP WHEN IT'S IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:37:20.020 --> 00:37:23.150
  • BUT THE PEOPLE WHO STAND WITH YOU IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:37:23.170 --> 00:37:26.120
  • AND IF YOU'RE THE SMARTEST ONE IN YOUR GROUP,
  • 00:37:26.140 --> 00:37:29.280
  • YOU NEED TO GET A NEW GROUP.
  • 00:37:30.000 --> 00:37:32.210
  • YOU'VE LEARNED ABOUT ALL, YOU'VE EXHAUSTED ABOUT
  • 00:37:32.230 --> 00:37:34.230
  • ALL YOU CAN GET FROM THAT SITUATION, AND I LIKE
  • 00:37:34.250 --> 00:37:37.070
  • WHAT YOU SAID, YOU STAY FRIENDS, YOU STAY IN
  • 00:37:37.090 --> 00:37:39.140
  • TOUCH WITH PEOPLE, YOU'RE ALWAYS KIND, BUT THERE'S
  • 00:37:39.160 --> 00:37:42.130
  • SEASONS IN LIFE AND AS THE SEASONS CHANGE, SO
  • 00:37:42.150 --> 00:37:45.160
  • WILL THE PEOPLE THAT GOD PUTS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:37:45.180 --> 00:37:48.110
  • ONE PERSON AT THE RIGHT TIME IN THE RIGHT PLACE
  • 00:37:48.130 --> 00:37:51.290
  • IN YOUR LIFE CAN BECOME THE DOORWAY THAT CAN
  • 00:37:52.010 --> 00:37:55.010
  • CATAPULT YOU TEN YEARS IN ADVANCE.
  • 00:37:55.030 --> 00:37:58.170
  • I MEAN JUST THEY'VE ALREADY DONE IT, THEY
  • 00:37:58.190 --> 00:38:00.230
  • ALREADY KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO AND WHAT
  • 00:38:00.250 --> 00:38:03.030
  • YOU'RE TRYING TO ACHIEVE AND IF THEY, IF YOU GET
  • 00:38:03.050 --> 00:38:06.260
  • WITH THEM AT THE RIGHT TIME, THEY CAN ACCELERATE
  • 00:38:06.280 --> 00:38:10.230
  • THINGS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:38:10.250 --> 00:38:13.290
  • - IN ALL FAIRNESS, SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT WE'RE
  • 00:38:14.010 --> 00:38:16.010
  • STEPPING AWAY FROM BECAUSE THEY'RE DRAGGING US DOWN,
  • 00:38:16.030 --> 00:38:18.020
  • THE CHEMISTRY OF THEIR FRIENDSHIPS CHANGE.
  • 00:38:18.040 --> 00:38:21.000
  • MAYBE YOU CAN'T HELP THEM, AND YOU STEPPING BACK
  • 00:38:21.020 --> 00:38:24.150
  • ALLOWS THEM TO COME INTO OTHER RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:38:24.170 --> 00:38:27.030
  • THAT HELP THEM.
  • 00:38:27.050 --> 00:38:28.230
  • SO I THINK WE HAVE TO BE REALLY OPEN FOR THAT.
  • 00:38:28.250 --> 00:38:30.140
  • - I'VE LEARNED, TOO, WHEN MY DAD WENT TO BE WITH THE
  • 00:38:30.160 --> 00:38:33.280
  • LORD, SOME PEOPLE WANTED THE CHURCH TO STAY JUST THE
  • 00:38:34.000 --> 00:38:37.090
  • SAME, AND UNFORTUNATELY I'M A DIFFERENT PERSON.
  • 00:38:37.110 --> 00:38:39.180
  • I COULDN'T HELP IT.
  • 00:38:39.200 --> 00:38:41.050
  • IT'S JUST MY PERSONALITY, AND THEY WANTED TO TAKE IT
  • 00:38:41.070 --> 00:38:43.070
  • MORE THIS WAY, AND I WAS JUST GOING MORE THAT WAY,
  • 00:38:43.090 --> 00:38:45.240
  • AND THEY WERE GOOD PEOPLE.
  • 00:38:45.260 --> 00:38:47.160
  • I'D GROWN UP WITH THEM, AND I LOVED THEM, AND THEY WERE
  • 00:38:47.180 --> 00:38:49.100
  • SUPPORTIVE, BUT THEY WERE NOT THAT SUPPORTIVE.
  • 00:38:49.120 --> 00:38:52.070
  • - I HATE TO CHANGE THIS.
  • 00:38:52.090 --> 00:38:54.040
  • IT'S NOT JUST THAT CHURCH, IT'S EVERY CHURCH.
  • 00:38:54.060 --> 00:38:57.170
  • IF THEY'RE NOT GOING THROUGH IT, THEY'RE GOING
  • 00:38:57.190 --> 00:38:59.170
  • TO GO THROUGH IT.
  • 00:38:59.190 --> 00:39:01.080
  • YOU ALWAYS HAVE THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAY, "I REMEMBER WHEN.
  • 00:39:01.100 --> 00:39:02.250
  • OH, I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS." AND YOU SPELL THAT
  • 00:39:02.270 --> 00:39:04.230
  • D-A-Z-E BECAUSE IF IT REALLY WASN'T AS GREAT.
  • 00:39:04.250 --> 00:39:08.140
  • IT WAS, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
  • 00:39:08.160 --> 00:39:10.290
  • WE CAN REALLY MAGNIFY THE PAST, AND GOD NEVER WANTS US
  • 00:39:11.010 --> 00:39:16.070
  • TO LIVE IN THE PAST, NEVER.
  • 00:39:16.090 --> 00:39:18.170
  • NEVER IS HE GOING TO ALLOW THAT, AND SO IT'S GOING
  • 00:39:18.190 --> 00:39:22.160
  • REQUIRE CHANGE.
  • 00:39:22.180 --> 00:39:24.050
  • CHANGE IS AN INDICATION GOD'S ON YOUR CASE.
  • 00:39:24.070 --> 00:39:27.100
  • WHEN CHANGES START HAPPENING, IT'S AN
  • 00:39:27.120 --> 00:39:29.260
  • INDICATION GOD IS ON YOUR CASE.
  • 00:39:29.280 --> 00:39:31.190
  • - AND STAYING OPEN FOR THAT CHANGE BECAUSE YOU KNOW,
  • 00:39:31.210 --> 00:39:34.170
  • MY PERSONALITY IS I WANTED EVERYBODY TO LIKE ME.
  • 00:39:34.190 --> 00:39:36.160
  • I'D NEVER TELL ANYBODY NO.
  • 00:39:36.180 --> 00:39:38.270
  • YOU ASK ME TO GO GET THAT THING BACK THERE,
  • 00:39:38.290 --> 00:39:41.070
  • I'D GO DO IT BECAUSE I WANT TO YOU LIKE ME.
  • 00:39:41.090 --> 00:39:42.290
  • SO I WANTED THEM ALL TO LIKE ME, BUT I NEEDED TO
  • 00:39:43.010 --> 00:39:44.200
  • FULFILL MY DESTINY.
  • 00:39:44.220 --> 00:39:46.090
  • AND SO I HAD TO COME TO A POINT WHERE I HAD TO ACCEPT
  • 00:39:46.110 --> 00:39:48.240
  • THE FACT THAT NOT EVERYBODY'S GOING LIKE ME,
  • 00:39:48.260 --> 00:39:51.090
  • EVEN PEOPLE I GREW UP WITH, AND THEY'RE STILL FRIENDS,
  • 00:39:51.110 --> 00:39:54.150
  • BUT YOU KNOW WE'RE JUST NOT -- YOU LEARNED THIS, TOO.
  • 00:39:54.170 --> 00:39:57.020
  • SOME PEOPLE CAN BE -- YOU CAN HAVE PEOPLE WITH YOU, OR
  • 00:39:57.040 --> 00:40:00.240
  • YOU CAN HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE FOR YOU.
  • 00:40:00.260 --> 00:40:02.220
  • SOMETIMES, YOU GOT PEOPLE WITH YOU, AND THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:40:02.240 --> 00:40:04.110
  • REALLY FOR YOU.
  • 00:40:04.130 --> 00:40:06.050
  • I SAY SOMETIMES I'VE SEEN PEOPLE OUT IN THE AUDIENCE,
  • 00:40:06.070 --> 00:40:08.040
  • SPEAKING OF MY DAD WAY BACK THEN, I THOUGHT,
  • 00:40:08.060 --> 00:40:10.120
  • THEY'RE HERE, BUT THEY'RE NOT FOR ME.
  • 00:40:10.140 --> 00:40:13.110
  • AND EVENTUALLY THEY LEFT, AND PEOPLE THOUGHT YOU, IT'S
  • 00:40:13.130 --> 00:40:15.280
  • GOING TO BE -- HE'S SO SAD, BUT MAN, I HAD A
  • 00:40:16.000 --> 00:40:17.250
  • PARTY WHEN THEY LEFT.
  • 00:40:17.270 --> 00:40:19.290
  • BUT YOU KNOW, IT WAS JUST A NEW DAY, AND I'M SAYING THIS
  • 00:40:20.010 --> 00:40:22.030
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN HAVE GOOD PEOPLE, BUT I JUST WANT TO
  • 00:40:22.050 --> 00:40:25.030
  • ENCOURAGE, ARE THEY WITH YOU, OR ARE THEY FOR YOU?
  • 00:40:25.050 --> 00:40:29.160
  • SOMEBODY THAT'S WITH YOU, HEY, THEY'RE THERE.
  • 00:40:29.180 --> 00:40:31.240
  • THEY'RE GOING TO HANG OUT, BUT IF THEY'RE FOR YOU, MAN,
  • 00:40:31.260 --> 00:40:33.150
  • THEY GOT YOUR BACK.
  • 00:40:33.170 --> 00:40:35.020
  • THEY'RE PRAYING FOR YOU.
  • 00:40:35.040 --> 00:40:36.200
  • THEY BELIEVE IN YOU.
  • 00:40:36.220 --> 00:40:38.080
  • THEY GIVE YOU SOME GRACE TO MAKE MISTAKES.
  • 00:40:38.100 --> 00:40:40.000
  • I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO PREACH, BUT I HAD PEOPLE THAT WERE
  • 00:40:40.020 --> 00:40:41.290
  • SO MANY -- LISTEN, I'M TALKING ABOUT A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:40:42.010 --> 00:40:44.010
  • 99% WERE SO FOR ME AND SO LOYAL, BUT I'VE LEARNED IN
  • 00:40:44.030 --> 00:40:47.100
  • MY LIFE, IT'S JUST TOO SHORT TO HAVE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:40:47.120 --> 00:40:50.000
  • ARE JUST WITH YOU.
  • 00:40:50.020 --> 00:40:51.230
  • I WANT YOU TO BE FOR ME, AND I WANT TO BE FOR YOU.
  • 00:40:51.250 --> 00:40:53.230
  • I'M NOT JUST GOING DRAG AROUND AND DRAG WITH YOU.
  • 00:40:53.250 --> 00:40:55.250
  • I'M GOING TO SUPPORT YOU.
  • 00:40:55.270 --> 00:40:57.090
  • I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:40:57.110 --> 00:40:58.220
  • I'M GOING TO COVER FOR YOU IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE.
  • 00:40:58.240 --> 00:41:00.050
  • I'M GOING TO TAKE UP FOR YOU.
  • 00:41:00.070 --> 00:41:01.200
  • BUT THAT'S THE KIND OF FRIENDS WE NEED.
  • 00:41:01.220 --> 00:41:03.080
  • - WELL, I THINK THAT'S THE THEME OF NIGHT OF HOPE,
  • 00:41:03.100 --> 00:41:06.240
  • AMERICA'S NIGHT OF HOPE.
  • 00:41:06.260 --> 00:41:08.280
  • IT'S REALLY TO TELL PEOPLE THEY CAN DO BETTER.
  • 00:41:09.000 --> 00:41:11.170
  • THEY CAN STEP UP, AND AS PREACHERS, WHATEVER WE'RE
  • 00:41:11.190 --> 00:41:16.140
  • PREACHING THE SUNDAY BEFORE, WE'RE DOING
  • 00:41:16.160 --> 00:41:20.050
  • SOMETHING ELSE, IT LINGERS.
  • 00:41:20.070 --> 00:41:21.280
  • AND YESTERDAY, I WAS PREACHING ABOUT THE
  • 00:41:22.000 --> 00:41:24.060
  • SCRIPTURE IN JOHN WHERE JESUS SAID, THE WORLD WILL
  • 00:41:24.080 --> 00:41:28.140
  • REALLY KNOW THAT GOD SENT ME HAD THIS HAPPENS, AND HERE'S
  • 00:41:28.160 --> 00:41:33.050
  • WHAT HE SAID, THE FATHER LOVES ME, AND I LOVE THE
  • 00:41:33.070 --> 00:41:37.080
  • FATHER, AND THE FATHER LOVES YOU LIKE HE LOVES ME.
  • 00:41:37.100 --> 00:41:41.260
  • AND I HAD READ THAT SO MANY TIMES, BUT IT STAGGERED ME.
  • 00:41:41.280 --> 00:41:46.170
  • IT BUCKLED MY KNEES TO THINK THAT JESUS, THAT GOD, LOVES
  • 00:41:46.190 --> 00:41:50.100
  • ME JUST LIKE HE LOVES JESUS, AND THAT'S EVERYTHING THAT
  • 00:41:50.120 --> 00:41:52.280
  • WE'RE SAYING HERE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:41:53.000 --> 00:41:56.270
  • WE'RE SAYING DON'T LIVE IN YOUR PAST.
  • 00:41:56.290 --> 00:41:59.070
  • DON'T GET STUCK WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE SEEMINGLY
  • 00:41:59.090 --> 00:42:03.080
  • TOLERATING YOUR INSECURITIES,
  • 00:42:03.100 --> 00:42:05.130
  • BUT TO BREAK OUT OF THAT.
  • 00:42:05.150 --> 00:42:07.040
  • JENTZEN, YOU DO SO WELL TALKING ABOUT WHAT A
  • 00:42:07.060 --> 00:42:10.030
  • PERSON NEEDS TO DO TO AWAKEN THAT DREAM.
  • 00:42:10.050 --> 00:42:12.020
  • TALK TO US ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:42:12.040 --> 00:42:15.020
  • - YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK THE WAYS
  • 00:42:15.040 --> 00:42:18.180
  • THAT GOD USES JOEL AND HIS MINISTRY IN THIS NATION, I
  • 00:42:18.200 --> 00:42:23.270
  • KNOW I WAS RIDING IN A CAR ONE DAY, AND I JUST HAD A
  • 00:42:23.290 --> 00:42:27.120
  • BAD DAY, AND IT WAS A PERSONAL THING WITH THE
  • 00:42:27.140 --> 00:42:29.100
  • FAMILY AND ONE OF MY KIDS.
  • 00:42:29.120 --> 00:42:31.210
  • AND I WAS JUST HAVING A BAD DAY.
  • 00:42:31.230 --> 00:42:33.260
  • IT WAS A BAD DAY.
  • 00:42:33.280 --> 00:42:35.100
  • I DON'T CARE WHO YOU, YOU CAN HAVE A BAD DAY, AND IT
  • 00:42:35.120 --> 00:42:38.010
  • CAN COME QUICK OUT OF NOWHERE.
  • 00:42:38.030 --> 00:42:41.140
  • AND I WAS DISCOURAGED, AND IT HAD GONE ON
  • 00:42:41.160 --> 00:42:44.000
  • FOR SEVERAL DAYS.
  • 00:42:44.020 --> 00:42:46.000
  • AND THE THOUGHT JUST HIT ME, YOU NEED SOME ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:42:46.020 --> 00:42:50.150
  • AND I TURNED ON THE XM RADIO IN MY CAR, AND NORMALLY I
  • 00:42:50.170 --> 00:42:54.010
  • HAVE IT ON THE BAD NEWS, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:42:54.030 --> 00:42:56.020
  • THE NEWS, THE NEWS CHANNEL. I'M A NEWS JUNKIE.
  • 00:42:56.040 --> 00:42:58.030
  • I LIKE NEWS.
  • 00:42:58.050 --> 00:42:59.210
  • BUT I FLIPPED IT OVER TO JOEL OSTEEN XM.
  • 00:42:59.230 --> 00:43:04.040
  • IT WAS AMAZING, AND I'M RIDING DOWN THE ROAD,
  • 00:43:04.060 --> 00:43:06.240
  • AND I'M CRYING BECAUSE EVERYTHING HE'S SAYING IS
  • 00:43:06.260 --> 00:43:11.090
  • FEEDING MY DREAM, FEEDING MY FAITH.
  • 00:43:11.110 --> 00:43:14.110
  • HE WOULDN'T ALLOW ME TO THINK NEGATIVE WHILE
  • 00:43:14.130 --> 00:43:16.140
  • I WAS LISTENING TO HIM.
  • 00:43:16.160 --> 00:43:18.070
  • YOU KNOW, MY MIND WOULD GO TO THE EXTREME OF WHERE THIS
  • 00:43:18.090 --> 00:43:21.030
  • SITUATION COULD GO.
  • 00:43:21.050 --> 00:43:22.270
  • HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED, AND I REALLY FEEL LIKE
  • 00:43:22.290 --> 00:43:25.260
  • PEOPLE LISTENING NEED TO HEAR THIS.
  • 00:43:25.280 --> 00:43:27.170
  • SOMETIMES, BAD GOES TO UNBEARABLE, AND WHEN BAD
  • 00:43:27.190 --> 00:43:30.050
  • GOES TO UNBEARABLE, GOOD THINGS HAPPEN.
  • 00:43:30.070 --> 00:43:33.220
  • THE STORY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT OF PHARAOH, HE
  • 00:43:33.240 --> 00:43:37.130
  • MESSED UP WHEN HE SAID, YOU'RE NOT ONLY GOING
  • 00:43:37.150 --> 00:43:41.110
  • TO DO THE WORK.
  • 00:43:41.130 --> 00:43:43.000
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE YOUR OWN BRICKS.
  • 00:43:43.020 --> 00:43:45.020
  • BAD, IT WAS ALREADY BAD, BUT THEN HE MADE IT UNBEARABLE.
  • 00:43:45.040 --> 00:43:47.180
  • BUT WHEN BAD GOES TO UNBEARABLE IN LIFE, THAT'S
  • 00:43:47.200 --> 00:43:51.080
  • WHEN GOOD THINGS HAPPEN BECAUSE WE TURN BACK TO GOD.
  • 00:43:51.100 --> 00:43:53.090
  • WE TURN BACK TO THE WORD.
  • 00:43:53.110 --> 00:43:55.160
  • WE TURN BACK TO PRAYER.
  • 00:43:55.180 --> 00:43:57.210
  • AND SOMEBODY'S LISTENING TO ME TODAY, AND BAD HAS GONE
  • 00:43:57.230 --> 00:44:01.020
  • TO UNBEARABLE, BUT IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
  • 00:44:01.040 --> 00:44:03.100
  • GOOD TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:44:03.120 --> 00:44:04.280
  • YOU KNOW, THE DEVIL IS A DUMB DEVIL SOMETIMES
  • 00:44:05.000 --> 00:44:07.260
  • BECAUSE HE WON'T LEAVE BAD ENOUGH ALONE.
  • 00:44:07.280 --> 00:44:10.060
  • IF HE WOULD JUST LEAVE YOU IN THAT ADDICTION, BUT WHEN
  • 00:44:10.080 --> 00:44:13.090
  • HE KEEPS PUTTING MORE ON AND MORE ON AND MORE ON,
  • 00:44:13.110 --> 00:44:16.220
  • FINALLY, YOU GET SO DESPERATE THAT YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:44:16.240 --> 00:44:18.230
  • TURN ON CHRISTIAN TV.
  • 00:44:18.250 --> 00:44:20.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:20.160 --> 00:44:22.070
  • YOU ACTUALLY SAY TO YOUR WIFE, LET'S GO HEAR JOEL
  • 00:44:22.090 --> 00:44:25.170
  • WHEN HE COMES BECAUSE, HEY, WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOSE?
  • 00:44:25.190 --> 00:44:28.200
  • THINGS HAVE GONE FROM BAD TO UNBEARABLE, BUT THAT'S WHEN
  • 00:44:28.220 --> 00:44:31.020
  • GOOD THINGS HAPPEN BECAUSE WE BEGIN TO SAY, GOD,
  • 00:44:31.040 --> 00:44:33.060
  • I NEED YOU AGAIN.
  • 00:44:33.080 --> 00:44:35.180

  • AND JENTZEN, YOU SAID, GENERATIONS CAN BE
  • 00:46:57.050 --> 00:47:00.020
  • INTIMIDATING, BUT SHOULD BE INSPIRED; THAT IF YOUR
  • 00:47:00.040 --> 00:47:03.090
  • FATHER WAS ABLE TO DO THIS, THEN YOU CAN EVEN DO GREATER
  • 00:47:03.110 --> 00:47:07.130
  • THAN THAT, AND YOU'RE A TESTIMONY TO THAT, BISHOP,
  • 00:47:07.150 --> 00:47:11.130
  • WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT HOW YOUR FATHER STARTED WITH NOTHING,
  • 00:47:11.150 --> 00:47:16.150
  • BUT THAT IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO BECOME A VERY SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:47:16.170 --> 00:47:20.180
  • BUSINESS AND VERY MUCH OF AN INFLUENCER HERE
  • 00:47:20.200 --> 00:47:24.080
  • IN THIS AREA.
  • 00:47:24.100 --> 00:47:25.230
  • HOW DID THAT ALL UNFOLD?
  • 00:47:25.250 --> 00:47:27.070
  • - FIRST OFF, BISHOP IS VERY MODEST BECAUSE TELL US SOME
  • 00:47:27.090 --> 00:47:29.020
  • STATISTICS, THOUGH.
  • 00:47:29.040 --> 00:47:31.130
  • YOUR HAIR CARE LINE IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:47:31.150 --> 00:47:33.230

  • 00:47:33.250 --> 00:47:37.090
  • I MEAN, WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO HIS HAND BEING ON US.
  • 00:47:37.110 --> 00:47:41.170
  • WAL-MART IS OUR BIGGEST CUSTOMER, SO...
  • 00:47:41.190 --> 00:47:43.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:43.070 --> 00:47:44.250
  • - HE'S GOT GOOD HAIR, TOO.
  • 00:47:44.270 --> 00:47:46.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:46.100 --> 00:47:48.000
  • - I LOVE THAT, 70 YEARS. - I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:47:48.020 --> 00:47:49.190
  • - PROOF IS IN THE PRODUCT.
  • 00:47:49.210 --> 00:47:51.140
  • - YES, YES, YES. THE COMPANY IS 70 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:47:51.160 --> 00:47:53.130
  • MY DAD STARTED IN 1947, SO 70 YEARS OLD, AND IT JUST
  • 00:47:53.150 --> 00:47:56.240
  • STARTED WITH A DREAM. HE JUST STARTED WITH A DREAM.
  • 00:47:56.260 --> 00:48:02.020
  • MY DAD KNEW AT FIVE YEARS OLD THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:48:02.040 --> 00:48:06.070
  • A BUSINESSMAN, AND HE WAS SITTING ON OUR PORCH ONE
  • 00:48:06.090 --> 00:48:10.030
  • DAY, AND HE WAS LOOKING UP IN THE SKY.
  • 00:48:10.050 --> 00:48:12.200
  • HE SAW THE WORD "MILLIONAIRE" COME ACROSS
  • 00:48:12.220 --> 00:48:15.160
  • THE SKY, AND IT SPOKE TO HIM.
  • 00:48:15.180 --> 00:48:18.020
  • NOBODY ELSE SAW IT BUT HIM.
  • 00:48:18.040 --> 00:48:19.290
  • HE SAW THAT, BUT HE KNEW AT FIVE YEARS OLD THAT HE WAS
  • 00:48:20.010 --> 00:48:22.210
  • GOING TO BE A BUSINESSMAN.
  • 00:48:22.230 --> 00:48:24.280
  • AND WHEN HE CAME TO ATLANTA IN THE EARLY 1940s, HE SAW A
  • 00:48:25.000 --> 00:48:28.160
  • SIGN IN DOWNTOWN ATLANTA -- I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:48:28.180 --> 00:48:31.080
  • COMING TO ATLANTA.
  • 00:48:31.100 --> 00:48:32.280
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE COMING TO ATLANTA.
  • 00:48:33.000 --> 00:48:35.110
  • IT JUST BRINGS FAVOR OF GOD ON US TO BE ABLE TO HOST
  • 00:48:35.130 --> 00:48:37.290
  • AMERICA'S NIGHT OF HOPE RIGHT HERE IN
  • 00:48:38.010 --> 00:48:40.150
  • OUR CITY, YOU KNOW? IT'S JUST UNPRECEDENTED.
  • 00:48:40.170 --> 00:48:43.290
  • I'M CLAIMING AND DECLARING RIGHT NOW UNCOMMON FAVOR FOR
  • 00:48:44.010 --> 00:48:46.270
  • UNCOMMON RESULTS, FOR OUR WONDERFUL CITY AND OUR
  • 00:48:46.290 --> 00:48:50.130
  • NATION WHERE WE CLEARLY NEED GOD'S INCREDIBLE FAVOR AND
  • 00:48:50.150 --> 00:48:53.070
  • MERCY IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:48:53.090 --> 00:48:55.250
  • SO I'M GRATEFUL FOR THAT.
  • 00:48:55.270 --> 00:48:58.100
  • THAT FAVOR TO ME IS EXPECTATION FOR FAVORABLE
  • 00:48:58.120 --> 00:49:02.130
  • CHANGE, THAT HOPE.
  • 00:49:02.150 --> 00:49:04.080
  • THAT'S WHAT THAT IS, EXPECTATION FOR
  • 00:49:04.100 --> 00:49:05.250
  • A FAVORABLE CHANGE.
  • 00:49:05.270 --> 00:49:07.150
  • SO I'M JUST BELIEVING THAT THAT IS ALREADY
  • 00:49:07.170 --> 00:49:10.100
  • IN THE MAKING.
  • 00:49:10.120 --> 00:49:12.010
  • BUT THAT EXPECTATION IN MY DAD'S HEART WITH $18.23 IN
  • 00:49:12.030 --> 00:49:15.170
  • HIS POCKET, THAT LITTLE DREAM THAT HE HAD, HE
  • 00:49:15.190 --> 00:49:19.190
  • STARTED ACTING ON THAT DREAM, AND HE
  • 00:49:19.210 --> 00:49:21.170
  • COULDN'T LET IT GO.
  • 00:49:21.190 --> 00:49:23.100
  • IF YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING THAT YOU CANNOT LET GO, EVEN IF
  • 00:49:23.120 --> 00:49:25.150
  • YOU DON'T KNOW HOW, JUST START DREAMING IN LIVING
  • 00:49:25.170 --> 00:49:29.060
  • COLOR, AND THAT'S WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:49:29.080 --> 00:49:30.260
  • HE HAD A DREAM IN LIVING COLOR.
  • 00:49:30.280 --> 00:49:32.130
  • A DREAM IS NOT THAT WHAT YOU SEE IN YOUR SLEEP.
  • 00:49:32.150 --> 00:49:34.110
  • IT'S THAT WHICH KEEPS SLEEP FROM YOU.
  • 00:49:34.130 --> 00:49:36.070
  • SO WHEN YOU REALLY GOT A DREAM FROM GOD, YOU'LL
  • 00:49:36.090 --> 00:49:38.240
  • WRESTLE SOME NIGHTS, JUST LIKE JACOB,
  • 00:49:38.260 --> 00:49:40.250
  • AND THAT'S A GOOD THING.
  • 00:49:40.270 --> 00:49:42.200
  • - I LOVE THAT, BISHOP, BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW IF I'VE
  • 00:49:42.220 --> 00:49:44.150
  • TOLD Y'ALL BEFORE, BUT MY DAD WAS RAISED ON A COTTON
  • 00:49:44.170 --> 00:49:46.290
  • FARM, AND AT 17 YEARS OLD, HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST.
  • 00:49:47.010 --> 00:49:49.160
  • HE WAS THE FIRST ONE IN THE FAMILY, AND IT WAS A
  • 00:49:49.180 --> 00:49:51.200
  • PRETTY AMAZING THING.
  • 00:49:51.220 --> 00:49:53.120
  • BUT AT 17, HE TOLD ME HE SAID, JOEL, I KNEW I WAS
  • 00:49:53.140 --> 00:49:56.280
  • GOING TO PASTOR A CHURCH OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:49:57.000 --> 00:49:59.170
  • AND THIS WAS LIKE IN 1930 SOMETHING.
  • 00:49:59.190 --> 00:50:01.110
  • THERE WERE NO CHURCHES OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, AND HE
  • 00:50:01.130 --> 00:50:03.270
  • SAID, BUT SOMETHING WAS IN MY HEART OF I SAW ME
  • 00:50:03.290 --> 00:50:06.060
  • PASTORING A CHURCH OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, SO GOD
  • 00:50:06.080 --> 00:50:08.200
  • DROPPED THAT IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:50:08.220 --> 00:50:10.120
  • HE HAD NO SEMINARY. THEY WERE POOR.
  • 00:50:10.140 --> 00:50:11.270
  • THEY BARELY HAD ENOUGH FOOD AND WATER AND
  • 00:50:11.290 --> 00:50:13.260
  • THINGS TO DRINK.
  • 00:50:13.280 --> 00:50:15.190
  • BUT MY DAD TOOK A STEP OF FAITH.
  • 00:50:15.210 --> 00:50:17.130
  • HIS PARENTS TOLD HIM -- AND THEY WERE GOOD PEOPLE,
  • 00:50:17.150 --> 00:50:19.210
  • LOVING PEOPLE -- BUT THEY SAID, JOHN, YOU BETTER NOT
  • 00:50:19.230 --> 00:50:21.190
  • LEAVE THE FARM.
  • 00:50:21.210 --> 00:50:23.020
  • YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING BUT PICK COTTON.
  • 00:50:23.040 --> 00:50:25.120
  • SO NO SUPPORT FROM THERE, BUT HE TOOK A STEP OF FAITH.
  • 00:50:25.140 --> 00:50:27.210
  • HE STARTED HITCH HIKING TO PREACH, AND HE'D PREACH ON
  • 00:50:27.230 --> 00:50:31.020
  • THE STREET CORNERS, PRISONS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • 00:50:31.040 --> 00:50:33.180
  • BUT I GUESS THE POINT I'M MAKING IS SOMETIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:50:33.200 --> 00:50:37.030
  • CLOSE TO YOU CAN TRY TO DISCOURAGE YOU FROM YOUR OWN
  • 00:50:37.050 --> 00:50:39.140
  • DREAMS OR TRY TO TALK YOU OUT OF THINGS, BUT YOU'VE
  • 00:50:39.160 --> 00:50:42.080
  • GOT TO KNOW THAT WHAT GOD PUT IN YOUR HEART, EVEN IF
  • 00:50:42.100 --> 00:50:45.000
  • YOU'RE BISHOP BRONNER'S DAD, AND YOU GOT $18.43, IF GOD'S
  • 00:50:45.020 --> 00:50:48.240
  • PUT THAT IN YOUR HEART, YOU GOTTA GO WITH WHAT GOD SAYS
  • 00:50:48.260 --> 00:50:52.160
  • AND JUST BELIEVE FOR HIM TO OPEN UP SOME DOORS.
  • 00:50:52.180 --> 00:50:54.230
  • MY DAD HAD NO EDUCATION, BUT HE WENT AND
  • 00:50:54.250 --> 00:50:57.270
  • GOT AN EDUCATION.
  • 00:50:57.290 --> 00:50:59.240
  • HE WENT THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES, BUT HE PASTORED A
  • 00:50:59.260 --> 00:51:01.290
  • CHURCH OF THOUSANDS, AND NOW HERE WE ARE TODAY, AND IT
  • 00:51:02.010 --> 00:51:04.220
  • ALL STARTED FROM A TEENAGER.
  • 00:51:04.240 --> 00:51:07.090
  • NOBODY IN HIS FAMILY -- THEY WERE GOOD PEOPLE.
  • 00:51:07.110 --> 00:51:09.290
  • THEY PRAYED AT CHRISTMAS AND EASTER, BUT THEY DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:51:10.010 --> 00:51:12.060
  • ANYTHING ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:51:12.080 --> 00:51:14.040
  • BUT MY DAD HAD A -- AMAZING STORY, LONG, BUT MY DAD HAD
  • 00:51:14.060 --> 00:51:16.190
  • A FRIEND THAT WOULDN'T LEAVE HIM ALONE.
  • 00:51:16.210 --> 00:51:18.290
  • THIS FRIEND WOULD GO AND WRITE SCRIPTURES ON THE
  • 00:51:19.010 --> 00:51:21.100
  • CHALK BOARD AT SCHOOL, AND THEY CALLED HIM THE HOLY
  • 00:51:21.120 --> 00:51:24.160
  • ROLLER AND JUST CRAZY GUY.
  • 00:51:24.180 --> 00:51:26.130
  • HE HAPPENED TO BE MY DAD'S FRIEND, AND OF COURSE, MY
  • 00:51:26.150 --> 00:51:28.140
  • DAD WAS SO EMBARRASSED TO HAVE A FRIEND THAT'S
  • 00:51:28.160 --> 00:51:30.200
  • A HOLY ROLLER. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:51:30.220 --> 00:51:32.190
  • 17 YEARS OLD, MY DAD WAS WALKING HOME FROM A
  • 00:51:32.210 --> 00:51:34.180
  • NIGHTCLUB AT 2 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING, AND HE FELT
  • 00:51:34.200 --> 00:51:37.110
  • GOD SPEAKING TO HIM.
  • 00:51:37.130 --> 00:51:38.280
  • HE THOUGHT, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY LIFE?
  • 00:51:39.000 --> 00:51:40.250
  • AND HE WENT AND OPENED THE FAMILY BIBLE, AND IT TURNED
  • 00:51:40.270 --> 00:51:43.100
  • TO A PICTURE OF JESUS STANDING AT THE
  • 00:51:43.120 --> 00:51:44.280
  • DOOR AND KNOCKING.
  • 00:51:45.000 --> 00:51:46.190
  • AND HE CALLED HIS FRIEND AND WENT TO CHURCH WITH HIM,
  • 00:51:46.210 --> 00:51:48.140
  • AND THAT'S HOW HE CAME TO KNOW THE LORD.
  • 00:51:48.160 --> 00:51:49.270
  • SO JUST MOMENTS OF DESTINY.
  • 00:51:49.290 --> 00:51:51.130
  • ANYWAY, GOD'S GOT YOU AND THE PALM OF HIS HAND.
  • 00:51:51.150 --> 00:51:54.160
  • HE WANTS YOU TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:51:54.180 --> 00:51:56.040
  • HE WANTS YOU TO RISE HIGHER, AND THERE'S NO FORCE THAT'S
  • 00:51:56.060 --> 00:51:59.010
  • COMING AGAINST YOU THAT'S TOO STRONG FOR OUR GOD.
  • 00:51:59.030 --> 00:52:01.250
  • THE FORCES THAT ARE FOR YOU ARE GREATER THAN THE FORCES
  • 00:52:01.270 --> 00:52:03.280
  • THAT ARE AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:52:04.000 --> 00:52:05.120
  • - I THINK IT'S FANTASTIC.
  • 00:52:05.140 --> 00:52:07.080
  • WELL, I'M GOING TO ASK PASTOR JOEL IT PRAY IN JUST
  • 00:52:07.100 --> 00:52:09.280
  • A MOMENT, BUT PASTORS, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:52:10.000 --> 00:52:12.180
  • THANKS TO MATT AND LAURIE, TBN, AND THANK YOU FOR PRAYING.
  • 00:52:12.200 --> 00:52:18.030
  • YOU KNOW, I DID BELIEVE WHAT YOU SAID, THAT THIS IS NOT
  • 00:52:18.050 --> 00:52:20.240
  • JUST ABOUT ATLANTA.
  • 00:52:20.260 --> 00:52:22.220
  • WE KNOW THAT TBN WILL SHOW THIS.
  • 00:52:22.240 --> 00:52:26.150
  • WE KNOW THAT, BUT THIS CAN BE A SPARK OF HOPE THAT OUR
  • 00:52:26.170 --> 00:52:29.180
  • NATION NEEDS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:52:29.200 --> 00:52:31.130
  • THE NEXT GENERATION NEEDS A SPARK OF HOPE THAT THEY
  • 00:52:31.150 --> 00:52:34.270
  • DON'T NEED TO BE INTIMIDATED.
  • 00:52:34.290 --> 00:52:36.220
  • MANY SAY THAT THIS GENERATION COULD BE THE
  • 00:52:36.240 --> 00:52:39.000
  • FIRST TO HAVE LESS THAN THEIR PARENTS,
  • 00:52:39.020 --> 00:52:40.200
  • AND THAT'S NOT RIGHT.
  • 00:52:40.220 --> 00:52:42.110
  • THAT'S INTIMIDATION, AND THEN AS YOU'RE SPEAKING
  • 00:52:42.130 --> 00:52:46.040
  • ABOUT WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN YOUR FAMILY, AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:52:46.060 --> 00:52:48.000
  • WE'RE BELIEVING GOD FOR.
  • 00:52:48.020 --> 00:52:49.230
  • WE'RE JUST BELIEVING GOD THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE NOT
  • 00:52:49.250 --> 00:52:52.270
  • ONLY PHENOMENAL FOR ATLANTA, BUT REALLY FOR THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:52:52.290 --> 00:52:55.250
  • - AND THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT US COMING TOGETHER IN
  • 00:52:55.270 --> 00:52:58.040
  • THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:52:58.060 --> 00:53:00.020
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT
  • 00:53:00.040 --> 00:53:02.110
  • DENOMINATIONS OR WHATEVER, BUT WE'RE ALL GATHERING
  • 00:53:02.130 --> 00:53:04.240
  • UNDER ONE NAME, THE NAME OF JESUS IN SUN TRUST PARK.
  • 00:53:04.260 --> 00:53:07.200
  • AND NOT ONLY ARE WE DOING THAT, BUT PSALMS TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:53:07.220 --> 00:53:12.260
  • THE COMMANDED BLESSINGS, THAT WHERE THEY COME
  • 00:53:12.280 --> 00:53:15.250
  • TOGETHER, 1:33, THAT WHERE WE COME TOGETHER, I WILL
  • 00:53:15.270 --> 00:53:18.160
  • COMMAND A BLESSING.
  • 00:53:18.180 --> 00:53:21.110
  • I BELIEVE ALL OF THESE SEATS WHO HAVE PEOPLE WHO SIT IN
  • 00:53:21.130 --> 00:53:24.030
  • IT, AND WHEN JOEL PROCLAIMS THE WORD GOD GIVES HIM, GOD
  • 00:53:24.050 --> 00:53:26.240
  • IS GOING TO COMMAND RIGHT HERE IN THIS PLACE A
  • 00:53:26.260 --> 00:53:31.060
  • COMMANDED BLESSING UPON OUR FAMILIES, OUR LIVES, OUR
  • 00:53:31.080 --> 00:53:34.100
  • CITY, AND OUR NATION, AND OUR FAITH.
  • 00:53:34.120 --> 00:53:36.040
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:53:36.060 --> 00:53:38.190
  • - AND YOU KNOW, YOU'LL BE ON THAT PLATFORM.
  • 00:53:38.210 --> 00:53:40.170
  • YOU'LL BE ON THAT PLATFORM.
  • 00:53:40.190 --> 00:53:42.000
  • THEY'LL BE SOME POWERFUL PASTORS, AND I DO BELIEVE
  • 00:53:42.020 --> 00:53:45.060
  • THAT WHEN YOU HAVE PASTORS COMING TOGETHER, AND THEY
  • 00:53:45.080 --> 00:53:48.020
  • MAKE THAT PRAYER OF UNITY.
  • 00:53:48.040 --> 00:53:50.110
  • - YOUR CRUSADE STARTED IN ATLANTA, DIDN'T IT?
  • 00:53:50.130 --> 00:53:52.160
  • HOW MANY YEARS AGO?
  • 00:53:52.180 --> 00:53:54.120
  • - IT WAS IN 2004, SO 13 YEARS AGO, PHILLIPS ARENA
  • 00:53:54.140 --> 00:53:57.000
  • RIGHT ACROSS TOWN.
  • 00:53:57.020 --> 00:53:59.020
  • - FOLKS, WE'VE GOT TO FILL THIS BRAND NEW STADIUM FOR
  • 00:53:59.040 --> 00:54:01.280
  • THE GLORY OF GOD, BUT IT ALL STARTED HERE.
  • 00:54:02.000 --> 00:54:05.090
  • SO THERE'S SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH YOUR MINISTRY AND
  • 00:54:05.110 --> 00:54:07.150
  • THIS CITY, SO WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT.
  • 00:54:07.170 --> 00:54:10.000
  • - THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT ATLANTA.
  • 00:54:10.020 --> 00:54:11.240
  • IT'S FUNNY, JENTZEN, BECAUSE WHEN WE CAME, I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:54:11.260 --> 00:54:14.280
  • -- WE WERE PASTORING THE CHURCH BACK AT HOME, AND I
  • 00:54:15.000 --> 00:54:17.020
  • HAD THE TV PROGRAM, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW HOW MANY
  • 00:54:17.040 --> 00:54:18.240
  • PEOPLE WOULD COME OUT.
  • 00:54:18.260 --> 00:54:20.070
  • AND WE THOUGHT, DO WE RENT AN ARENA FOR A THOUSAND
  • 00:54:20.090 --> 00:54:21.290
  • OR FIVE THOUSAND.
  • 00:54:22.010 --> 00:54:23.130
  • AND FINALLY, I SAID, LET'S RENT THE BASKETBALL RING
  • 00:54:23.150 --> 00:54:25.140
  • BECAUSE WE CAN TURN THE LIGHTS OFF UP TOP BECAUSE
  • 00:54:25.160 --> 00:54:27.180
  • YOU DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S 500 THERE.
  • 00:54:27.200 --> 00:54:29.190
  • - THEY WERE STANDING OUTSIDE.
  • 00:54:29.210 --> 00:54:32.150
  • THERE WERE MORE OUTSIDE THAN INSIDE.
  • 00:54:32.170 --> 00:54:34.280
  • - MY BROTHER CALLED ME AT 8 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING AND
  • 00:54:35.000 --> 00:54:36.210
  • SAID, "THEY'RE ALREADY LINED UP TO GET IN."
  • 00:54:36.230 --> 00:54:38.130
  • BUT IT'S A GOD THING, NOT TO BRAG ON ME.
  • 00:54:38.150 --> 00:54:40.200
  • IT'S JUST THE GOODNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:54:40.220 --> 00:54:43.090
  • IT'S GOD'S PLAN FOR OUR LIVES ARE BIGGER THAN OUR
  • 00:54:43.110 --> 00:54:45.180
  • OWN, AND WE'RE HERE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE'RE PRAYING
  • 00:54:45.200 --> 00:54:48.070
  • FOR YOU, BELIEVING FOR YOUR DREAMS, AND HEY, GOD'S GOT
  • 00:54:48.090 --> 00:54:51.230
  • YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND, AND WE JUST BELIEVE -- I'VE
  • 00:54:51.250 --> 00:54:54.170
  • BEEN TELLING OUR CONGREGATION AT HOME, WE
  • 00:54:54.190 --> 00:54:56.230
  • JUST BELIEVE THAT 2017 WILL BE A YEAR OF YES IN YOUR
  • 00:54:56.250 --> 00:54:58.160
  • LIFE.
  • 00:54:58.180 --> 00:55:00.020
  • YOU MAY HAVE HAD A LOT OF NO'S IN YOUR PASTOR, BUT
  • 00:55:00.040 --> 00:55:02.160
  • MAYBE IT WASN'T THE RIGHT TIME IN THE PAST, BUT I WANT
  • 00:55:02.180 --> 00:55:04.190
  • YOU TO BELIEVE THAT 2017 IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:55:04.210 --> 00:55:06.120
  • YOUR YEAR OF YES.
  • 00:55:06.140 --> 00:55:08.000
  • AND THAT MEANS YES TO ACCOMPLISHING A DREAM, YES
  • 00:55:08.020 --> 00:55:10.060
  • TO GETTING CLOSER TO GOD, YES TO BREAKING THAT
  • 00:55:10.080 --> 00:55:12.170
  • ADDICTION, MAYBE YES TO SEEING A FAMILY MEMBER
  • 00:55:12.190 --> 00:55:14.280
  • COME TO KNOW THE LORD.
  • 00:55:15.000 --> 00:55:16.220
  • I MEAN, I KNOW IN A SENSE, WE CAN'T MAKE IT HAPPEN
  • 00:55:16.240 --> 00:55:19.140
  • OUTSIDE OF GOD'S TIMING, BUT YOUR FAITH, LIKE THE LADY
  • 00:55:19.160 --> 00:55:22.180
  • THAT TOUCHED THE EDGE OF JESUS' ROBE, CAN CAUSE GREAT
  • 00:55:22.200 --> 00:55:24.170
  • THINGS TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:55:24.190 --> 00:55:26.160
  • SO WE JUST BELIEVE AND DECLARE IT'S GOING TO BE A
  • 00:55:26.180 --> 00:55:28.120
