  • HOUR TONIGHT?
  • 00:01:18.170 --> 00:01:20.220
  • - LEON FONTAINE: WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:23.090
  • THE FACT THAT EVERYBODY ON THIS WORLD, EVERY
  • 00:01:23.110 --> 00:01:27.020
  • COUNTRY, EVERY GROUP HAS BEEN TRYING TO CROSS THIS
  • 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:28.290
  • GREAT DIVIDE, THIS PLACE OF ENLIGHTENMENT, TRYING
  • 00:01:29.010 --> 00:01:31.230

  • EMPOWERED, ENLIGHTENED, HAVE EXTRA WISDOM.
  • 00:01:33.280 --> 00:01:37.190
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT HOW THE
  • 00:01:37.210 --> 00:01:40.050
  • CHURCH HAS BACKED AWAY FROM THAT WHEN WE OUGHT
  • 00:01:40.070 --> 00:01:42.030
  • TO BE OWNING THAT.
  • 00:01:42.050 --> 00:01:44.030
  • BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THINGS LIKE FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:01:44.050 --> 00:01:46.190
  • I'M PART SIOUX, THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN.
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:48.230
  • THEY HAD SWEAT LODGES, PEYOTE BUTTONS,
  • 00:01:48.250 --> 00:01:50.190
  • SWEET GRASS.
  • 00:01:50.210 --> 00:01:51.230
  • THEY WOULD FAST.
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:53.150
  • THEY WOULD GO -THEY'D DO DRUMMING AND MEDITATION,
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:55.240
  • EVERYTHING TO BEGIN TO HEAR FROM THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:01:55.260 --> 00:01:58.250
  • TAKE A LOOK AT EASTERN RELIGIONS WITH THEIR
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:02:01.070
  • CHANTING, MEDITATION, FIVE SENSE DEPRIVATION,
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:03.150
  • BEING IN CAVES.
  • 00:02:03.170 --> 00:02:05.190
  • EVEN IN THE MODERN WORLD THEY HAVE THESE LIKE
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:07.270
  • COFFINS WITH SALT WATER IN THEM WHERE THEY'D
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:09.280
  • FLOAT YOU TO SHUT YOUR FIVE SENSES DOWN TO SEE
  • 00:02:10.000 --> 00:02:12.060
  • IF YOU GET IN TUNE WITH SOMETHING ON THE IN INSIDE.
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:14.140
  • THE WHOLE WORLD IS FASCINATED, ZEN
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:17.060
  • MEDITATION IS BEING USED IN ALL OF OUR SPORTS.
  • 00:02:17.080 --> 00:02:19.160
  • MAYO CLINIC, ROCHESTER, EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO
  • 00:02:19.180 --> 00:02:21.220
  • FIGURE OUT--
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.220
  • THEY HAVE DIFFERENT WORDS FOR IT, BUT THEY WANT TO
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:26.100
  • GET TO THIS PLACE OF INCREDIBLE PEACE.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:29.130
  • SOME MIGHT CALL IT NOTHINGNESS, NIRVANA.
  • 00:02:29.150 --> 00:02:31.190
  • THERE'S A TON OF VERBIAGE FOR IT, BUT IN THE
  • 00:02:31.210 --> 00:02:34.080
  • CHRISTIAN'S LIFE, GOD PROVIDED A WAY FOR US TO
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:37.210
  • CONTINUALLY SPEAK A SPIRIT LANGUAGE, AND
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:40.080
  • PEOPLE HAVE EITHER GONE ON THE DITCH ON ONE SIDE
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:44.110
  • WHERE THEY'VE BACKED AWAY BECAUSE -AND THEN ON THE
  • 00:02:44.130 --> 00:02:47.120
  • OTHER SIDE WHERE IT HAS BEEN SO ABUSED IT HAS
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:50.110
  • BROUGHT TROUBLE AND HURT TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:52.230
  • AND WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE TERM SPIRIT
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:56.080
  • CONTEMPORARY, WE MEAN HOLY SPIRIT IS THE MOST
  • 00:02:56.100 --> 00:02:59.180
  • CONTEMPORARY FORCE ON THE PLANET, AND WE HAVE TO
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:02.220
  • HAVE A COMPLETE PARADIGM SHIFT OF WHAT THAT
  • 00:03:02.240 --> 00:03:05.200
  • LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:07.250
  • AND WHEN YOU MAKE THIS SHIFT, THERE IS AN EASE
  • 00:03:07.270 --> 00:03:10.150
  • OF FLOWING IN THE SUPERNATURAL, FLOWING IN
  • 00:03:10.170 --> 00:03:14.200
  • AND FROM THE FACT THAT WE ARE SPIRITS.
  • 00:03:14.220 --> 00:03:17.260
  • YOU KNOW, LIVING IN A BODY BUT HOLY SPIRIT IS
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:20.070
  • INSIDE OF US.
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:22.170
  • AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE WORLD IS PROBABLY
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:25.050
  • GOING TO BE EXCITED AND PASSIONATE ABOUT THE
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:29.000
  • CHURCH WHEN IT BEGINS TO TAKE ITS PLACE AS
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:31.220
  • EXPERTS IN THE SPIRIT REALM BECAUSE JESUS IS
  • 00:03:31.240 --> 00:03:34.260
  • THE KING OF THE SPIRIT REALM.
  • 00:03:34.280 --> 00:03:38.100
  • THEY'RE USING OUIJA BOARDS, WE'VE GOT MEDIUMS
  • 00:03:38.120 --> 00:03:40.100
  • ON TELEVISION TALKING TO PEOPLE'S DEAD GRANDPAS
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:43.120
  • THEY THINK.
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:45.030
  • THE WORLD IS FASCINATED.
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.200
  • THE CHURCH THINKS WE'RE GOING TO BACK AWAY FROM
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:48.270
  • THIS, BUT IF WE WILL WALK INTO THIS NEXT SEASON THE
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:51.060
  • WAY GOD HAS DESIGNED IT TO BE, THE WORLD IS GOING
  • 00:03:51.080 --> 00:03:55.220
  • TO BE ATTRACTED TO THE TRUE CHURCH IN THIS
  • 00:03:55.240 --> 00:03:58.140
  • PHENOMENAL WAY, AND IT WON'T BE HOKEY.
  • 00:03:58.160 --> 00:04:00.260
  • IT WON'T BE RIDICULOUS, AND WE'RE GOING TO LOOK
  • 00:04:00.280 --> 00:04:03.200
  • AT IT AND TAKE IT APART JUST ENOUGH TO SHOW
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:06.000
  • EVERYONE HERE THAT IT IS SO EASY TO WALK INTO THIS
  • 00:04:06.020 --> 00:04:11.000
  • REALM AND HAVE ACCESS TO ENLIGHTENMENT IF THEY
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:15.090
  • WANT TO CALL IT THAT.
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:17.190
  • IT'S JESUS.
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:19.160
  • IT'S HOLY SPIRIT, TO HAVE ACCESS TO INCREDIBLE
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:21.190
  • POWER, ACCESS TO A PEACE, A JOY, AND THEY'VE HEARD
  • 00:04:21.210 --> 00:04:24.270
  • THE VERBIAGE, BUT WE'VE OFTEN DONE IT WRONG.
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:28.000
  • MAN, TODAY WE'RE GOING TO UNPACK THIS IN A WAY THAT
  • 00:04:28.020 --> 00:04:31.050
  • PEOPLE WATCHING RIGHT NOW, EVEN BEFORE THE SHOW

  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:04:40.260 --> 00:04:44.050
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT A ROLL IN THAT I WANT TO GO TO
  • 00:04:44.070 --> 00:04:46.240
  • HERE IN JUST A SECOND, BUT LET ME JUST SAY THIS,
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:49.020
  • LEON, IF YOU WOUND THE CLOCK BACK ABOUT 30 YEARS
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:52.270
  • FROM WHEN WE'RE TAPING THIS PROGRAM, THIS
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:55.290
  • STUDIO WAS HERE.
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:58.060
  • IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE THIS.
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:05:00.230
  • IT LOOKED A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:02.180
  • THERE WAS MORE STAINED GLASS AND A FEW GOLD
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:04.220
  • ANGELS AND A FEW CHERUBS.
  • 00:05:04.240 --> 00:05:06.140
  • YOU REMEMBER, RIGHT?
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:07.250
  • YOU REMEMBER THE -OKAY.
  • 00:05:07.270 --> 00:05:09.270
  • AND SO BUT THERE WAS THE NEED AT THAT TIME TO
  • 00:05:09.290 --> 00:05:15.050
  • EXPLAIN THE PERSON OF HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:19.120
  • THERE WAS A -I REMEMBER MANY PROGRAMS WITH MY
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:22.220
  • PARENTS HOSTING, PAUL AND JAN CROUCH, THAT WERE
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:26.000
  • ATTEMPTING TO BRING THE PERSON THE UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:32.060
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND 30 YEARS LATER WE'RE
  • 00:05:32.080 --> 00:05:35.180
  • STILL DOING THE SAME THING.
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:38.000
  • SO YOU'RE KIND OF CONTINUING A STORY.
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:40.120
  • YOU'RE GOING TO USE SOME DIFFERENT TERMINOLOGIES,
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:43.250
  • BUT THE TERM YOU KIND OF COINED AND IS ON ALL THE
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:46.190
  • SCREENS AROUND HERE AND IS GOING TO BE ON IS
  • 00:05:46.210 --> 00:05:49.110
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY.
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:51.130
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO EXPLAIN THAT.
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:54.000
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT, BUT WE'RE REALLY
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.250
  • TALKING ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:05:55.270 --> 00:05:58.170
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT, IS THAT RIGHT?
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:00.060
  • - TOTALLY.
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:01.210

  • LEON FONTAINE. WATCH.
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:14.090
  • [ MUSIC ]
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:15.290
  • - SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY JUST IT'S BEING
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:18.060
  • COMPLETELY ALIVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT AND YOUR
  • 00:06:18.080 --> 00:06:20.190
  • SPIRITUAL LIFE IS COMPLETELY FLOURISHING,
  • 00:06:20.210 --> 00:06:22.270
  • BUT IN THE WAY THAT IT'S EXPRESSED AND IN THE WAY
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:26.080
  • THAT I LIVE MY LIFE IT'S COOL BECAUSE SPIRIT
  • 00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:28.150
  • CONTEMPORARY JUST MEAN YOU KNOW GOD SO WELL, AND
  • 00:06:28.170 --> 00:06:31.110
  • HE'S SO ALIVE IN YOUR LIFE AND SO REAL TO YOU.
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:33.270
  • - I GREW UP IN A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL, SO I HAD TO
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.230
  • FIND THE LINE WHERE I WAS LIKE STILL ABLE TO RELATE
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:38.140
  • TO PEOPLE, CONNECT WITH PEOPLE, IMPACT PEOPLE BUT
  • 00:06:38.160 --> 00:06:40.090
  • I WASN'T COMPROMISING MY BELIEFS AND WHAT I
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:43.100
  • THOUGHT WAS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:45.010
  • SO I JUST KIND OF DID THAT.
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:48.000
  • I PRACTICED BY LIKE PRAYING AND READING MY
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:49.230
  • BIBLE AND STUFF BUT STILL INCORPORATING IT IN A WAY
  • 00:06:49.250 --> 00:06:53.150
  • WHERE I COULD TALK TO PEOPLE AND NOT BE TRYING
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:55.110
  • TO FORCE IT ON THEM.
  • 00:06:55.130 --> 00:06:57.080
  • - I THOUGHT I WAS SUPPOSED TO, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:06:59.130
  • THROW THEM VERSES.
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:01.010
  • HA HA.
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:02.170
  • THROW THEM LIKE YOU KNOW, LIKE OH, JESUS DIED FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:04.210
  • WHY AREN'T YOU GIVING IT BACK TO HIM?
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:06.270
  • OR LIKE, YOU'RE MISSING OUT, BUT IN A VERY
  • 00:07:06.290 --> 00:07:08.200
  • JUDGMENTAL WAY IN A WAY.
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.190
  • BUT WHEN I STARTED TO LEARN ABOUT SPIRIT
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:13.210
  • CONTEMPORARY APPROACH TO PEOPLE, I LEARNED THAT
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:17.050
  • OH, THIS IS ACTUALLY EASIER THAN I THOUGHT.
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:20.030
  • ALL I HAVE TO DO IS BE KIND, BE LOVING, AND JUST
  • 00:07:20.050 --> 00:07:24.070
  • FOLLOW WHAT JESUS DID.
  • 00:07:24.090 --> 00:07:27.120
  • - I COME FROM A CULTURE THAT IS VERY
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:29.150
  • VERY RELIGIOUS.
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.100
  • YOU KNOW, MY CHURCH BACK HOME, GUYS SIT ON ONE
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:33.110
  • SIDE, WOMEN SIT ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:35.040
  • YOU DON'T WEAR PANTS TO CHURCH.
  • 00:07:35.060 --> 00:07:37.010
  • IN THIS DAY AND AGE THAT'S ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:39.050
  • RIDICULOUS BECAUSE THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:07:39.070 --> 00:07:41.020
  • FOCUSING ON WHEN YOU GO TO CHURCH, RIGHT?
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:43.030
  • YOU HAVE PASTORS IN AFRICA AND OTHER AREAS OF
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:45.070
  • THE WORLD THAT ARE VERY REVERED BECAUSE PEOPLE
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:47.270
  • SEEM TO THINK THEY HAVE A DIRECT LINE TO GOD WHEN
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:50.060
  • THEY DON'T REALIZE THAT WE HAVE THE SAME LINE TO
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:52.210

  • LOVE, HIS PEACE, HIS JOY FLOW THROUGH THEM AND
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:21.110
  • UPON THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM, I THINK THAT WOULD
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:24.100
  • MAKE THEM THE BIGGEST HARVEST TOOL THAT WE HAVE.

  • - WELL, FIRST OF ALL WE'VE GOT A MASSIVE
  • 00:08:47.190 --> 00:08:49.260
  • SEPARATION BETWEEN WHAT IS HOLY SPIRIT IS TO BE
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:52.100
  • DOING ON THE PLANET AND WHAT THE CHURCH IS
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:53.280
  • DOING WITH HIM.
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:55.250
  • WE KNOW THAT BASICALLY IT'S ONE GOD IN THREE
  • 00:08:55.270 --> 00:08:59.050
  • PERSONS, GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON,
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:02.180
  • AND GOD HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:09:02.200 --> 00:09:06.000
  • AND WE PRAY TO GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BUT IT IS
  • 00:09:06.020 --> 00:09:09.130
  • HOLY SPIRIT THAT DOES THE MANIFESTING.
  • 00:09:09.150 --> 00:09:13.020
  • IT SAYS VERY CLEARLY IN 1 CORINTHIANS 12 THAT HOLY
  • 00:09:13.040 --> 00:09:16.170
  • SPIRIT IS HERE TO HELP EVERYONE HAS
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:19.100

  • READ HIM.
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:26.050
  • IT'S ALL INSIDE, BUT THE MANIFESTATION
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:28.020
  • MEANS HEALING.
  • 00:09:28.040 --> 00:09:29.220
  • IT MEANS FINANCIAL BLESSING.
  • 00:09:29.240 --> 00:09:31.130
  • IT MEANS BEING ABLE TO RISE UP AND TO DO THINGS
  • 00:09:31.150 --> 00:09:33.150

  • OF GOES [ GASPS ] LIKE THIS.
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:38.220
  • THE VERY FIRST TIME WE ACTUALLY HAVE THE TERM
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:41.100
  • FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT WAS FOR THE ARTS AND
  • 00:09:41.120 --> 00:09:44.040
  • FOR BUSINESS.
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:46.000
  • IT WASN'T EVEN FOR PREACHERS.
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:47.130
  • - WOW.
  • 00:09:47.150 --> 00:09:48.250
  • - IT WAS BEZALEEL WHO WAS FILLED WITH THE
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:50.160
  • SPIRIT TO WORK WITH GOLD AND SILVER AND ART AND
  • 00:09:50.180 --> 00:09:53.060
  • CREATE BUILDINGS AND BEAUTY.
  • 00:09:53.080 --> 00:09:55.050
  • AND ALL WE'VE GOT IT FOR TODAY IS TO HELP PEOPLE
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:57.080
  • UNDERSTAND RELIGION SPIRITUALLY IN A CHURCH,
  • 00:09:57.100 --> 00:09:59.090
  • GIVE YOU A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, SOMETHING
  • 00:09:59.110 --> 00:10:00.280
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:02.150

  • - WOW.
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:07.190
  • - AND IF WE'RE GOING TO GO TAKE THE WORLD BACK
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:09.060
  • AND GET OUT OF OUR CHURCHES, IT'S NOT GOING
  • 00:10:09.080 --> 00:10:11.000
  • TO BE WITH PASTORS AND LEADERS.
  • 00:10:11.020 --> 00:10:12.270
  • IT IS GOING TO BE THE HOLY SPIRIT, SEE, THE
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:14.270
  • BIBLE SAYS IN 1 CORINTHIANS 12 THAT IF WE
  • 00:10:14.290 --> 00:10:16.290
  • WANT TO SEE THE GIFTS IN OPERATION, WE CANNOT BE
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:19.130
  • IGNORANT OF THE SPIRITUALS.
  • 00:10:19.150 --> 00:10:22.030
  • AND I'M GOING TO JUST SAY IT BECAUSE I GREW UP IN
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:24.290
  • THE CHURCH WORLD SEEING SIGNS WONDERS IN THE
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:27.250
  • CHURCH, BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL I BECAME A
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:30.150
  • PARAMEDIC THAT GOD HAD TO RETHINK ME.
  • 00:10:30.170 --> 00:10:34.020
  • HE HAD TO RENEW MY THINKING AS TO WHAT DOES
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:36.180
  • THE GIFT OF HEALINGS LOOK LIKE IN THE BACK OF
  • 00:10:36.200 --> 00:10:38.250
  • AN AMBULANCE.
  • 00:10:38.270 --> 00:10:40.200
  • WHEN I BECAME THE LEADER OF A CHURCH WHERE WE HAVE
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:43.120
  • MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF BUILDINGS AND LANDS,
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:45.240
  • AND I GO INTO WITH A BUNCH OF LAWYERS AND
  • 00:10:45.260 --> 00:10:48.130
  • PEOPLE IN A ROOM, AND THERE'S ARGUING AND
  • 00:10:48.150 --> 00:10:51.010
  • BIDDING AND TRYING TO GET THIS PIECE OF PROPERTY,
  • 00:10:51.030 --> 00:10:53.030
  • AND ALL THE SUDDEN, BAM!
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:55.160
  • GOD TELLS ME EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY.
  • 00:10:55.180 --> 00:10:57.260
  • AND IT JUST SEALS THE DEAL.
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:59.290
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS SO RELEVANT, SO INCREDIBLE
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:02.090
  • THAT IF I COULD JUST RIGHT NOW LISTEN TO HIM
  • 00:11:02.110 --> 00:11:06.140
  • FOR ANYBODY IN THE STUDIO AUDIENCE, OKAY, WHERE I
  • 00:11:06.160 --> 00:11:09.290
  • COULD JUST TUNE RIGHT INTO HIM, I COULD
  • 00:11:10.010 --> 00:11:11.260
  • LITERALLY SAY EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEEDED TO HEAR
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:14.230
  • TO GET THEM HEALED BECAUSE IT JUST MIGHT
  • 00:11:14.250 --> 00:11:16.120
  • BE UNFORGIVENNESS.
  • 00:11:16.140 --> 00:11:18.000
  • IT MIGHT NOT JUST NOT KNOWING.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:19.140
  • IT MIGHT BE A WORD OF WISDOM TO BRING SOME PEACE.
  • 00:11:19.160 --> 00:11:21.120
  • IT MIGHT BE GIFTS OF HEALING.
  • 00:11:21.140 --> 00:11:23.060
  • LIKE, WHEN YOU BEGIN TO LOOK AT THE GIFTS OF
  • 00:11:23.080 --> 00:11:25.080
  • SPIRIT AND THEN HOW INCREDIBLE THEY'LL WORK
  • 00:11:25.100 --> 00:11:27.170
  • IN THE REAL WORLD, THIS IS WHAT GOD HAS BEEN
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:30.110
  • TRYING TO SHOW US, BUT WE KEEP PLAYING GAMES
  • 00:11:30.130 --> 00:11:33.000
  • IN CHURCH.
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:35.010
  • WE KEEP USING IT TO TELL PEOPLE THEIR FORTUNES AND
  • 00:11:35.030 --> 00:11:37.110
  • TELL CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR
  • 00:11:37.130 --> 00:11:39.210
  • THEMSELVES ALL HE'S LITTLE WORDS FOR THEM.
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:43.120
  • AND SO WE'VE CREATED STARS AND FIVE FOLD
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:45.230
  • MINISTRY EXPERTS, AND WE'RE THE CLERGY.
  • 00:11:45.250 --> 00:11:48.150
  • WE'RE THE EXPERTS.
  • 00:11:48.170 --> 00:11:49.260
  • THE REST OF YOU ARE ROOKIES.

  • THE PLAYERS?

  • THEY GET THE BEST OUT OF THEM.
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:07.070
  • WE'RE SITTING IN OUR CHURCHES THE MOST RAW,

  • INCREDIBLE, PHENOMENAL, TALENTED, GIFTED PEOPLE,
  • 00:12:08.270 --> 00:12:11.000

  • 00:12:11.020 --> 00:12:13.060
  • KNOW HOLY SPIRIT AND THEN, WHAT ARE
  • 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:15.180
  • THE GUIDELINES,
  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:17.150

  • WORDS TO USE ON THE CHINESE LEADER, WHAT
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:29.030
  • WORDS TO USE ON THE PAKISTAN LEADER BECAUSE
  • 00:12:29.050 --> 00:12:32.250
  • SPIRIT OF GOD IS THE MOST RELEVANT FORCE ON
  • 00:12:32.270 --> 00:12:34.250
  • THE PLANET.
  • 00:12:34.270 --> 00:12:36.080
  • THERE'S NOTHING CRAZY ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:38.010
  • THERE'S NOTHING OUT OF TOUCH ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:40.060
  • HE KNOWS EVERY WORD TO SAY, EVERYTHING TO DO IN
  • 00:12:40.080 --> 00:12:42.240
  • EVERY SITUATION IF WE CAN JUST LEARN TO TUCK IN
  • 00:12:42.260 --> 00:12:45.030
  • AND LISTEN.
  • 00:12:45.050 --> 00:12:47.260
  • MIRACLES WILL BE THE RESULTS.
  • 00:12:47.280 --> 00:12:49.210
  • AND THE CHURCH WILL RISE UP AND WE WILL BEGIN TO
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:52.140
  • DISCIPLE NATIONS FROM A LEADERSHIP PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:12:52.160 --> 00:12:55.190
  • RATHER THAN WE NOW HAVE MEDIUMS ON TV, AND
  • 00:12:55.210 --> 00:12:59.030
  • EVERYONE IS CHECKING OUT ZEN BUDDHISM AGAIN, AND
  • 00:12:59.050 --> 00:13:01.080
  • EVERYONE IS CHECKING OUT ALL THESE OTHER RELIGIONS

  • - NO.
  • 00:13:47.180 --> 00:13:49.110
  • BEING AN DISPLAY IN THE BOARDROOM, AND I THINK

  • THAT THE FIRST TIME THAT THOSE DOTS GOT CONNECTED,
  • 00:13:51.270 --> 00:13:57.080

  • IT'S THE HOLY SPIRIT, THAT'S WHAT JESUS SENT,
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:38.170
  • WHEN HE LEFT HE SAID I'M SENDING YOU THE HOLY
  • 00:14:38.190 --> 00:14:41.050
  • SPIRIT TO COMFORT YOU AND TO BE WITH YOU AND TO

  • NEVER LEAVE YOU.
  • 00:14:43.110 --> 00:14:45.080

  • THAT, THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:14:47.280 --> 00:14:50.020
  • - OUR PROBLEM IS AMERICA IS THE DIVISION OVER
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:54.010
  • DOCTRINE, AND THE DESIRE TO HAVE ACCURATE DOCTRINE
  • 00:14:54.030 --> 00:15:00.090
  • WHICH OF COURSE WE ALL DO HAS TAKEN THE PLACE OF

  • EVEN DONE IN HEALTHY WONDERFUL WAYS WHICH I'VE
  • 00:15:09.230 --> 00:15:11.220
  • LEARNED FROM AS MEN FROM THE WESLEYAN PERSUASION
  • 00:15:11.240 --> 00:15:13.120
  • AND THIS PERSUASION AND THE

  • PENTECOSTAL AND THE BAPTISTS SIT DOWN, TOO,
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:17.090
  • AND AS I'VE TALKED TO SOME OF THESE MEN THEY

  • DON'T KNOW HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:23.130
  • THEY KNOW THE DOCTRINE ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:15:23.150 --> 00:15:25.080
  • AND THERE'S NOTHING IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS THE
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:27.220
  • WAY TO HAVE A GREAT LIFE IS TO FIGURE WHOLE
  • 00:15:27.240 --> 00:15:29.230
  • DOCTRINE OUT.
  • 00:15:29.250 --> 00:15:31.050
  • IN FACT, THE PEOPLE THAT I'VE FOUND THAT MOVE IN
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:33.220
  • THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT ARE USUALLY THE PEOPLE
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:35.220
  • WITHOUT THIS LOAD OF DEBATING DOCTRINE THAT
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:39.080
  • THEY'VE WADED THROUGH, AND JUST SAID I WANT A
  • 00:15:39.100 --> 00:15:41.200
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
  • 00:15:41.220 --> 00:15:43.170
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:45.080
  • - AND WHEN WE CAN MOVE BACK TO THAT -NOW,
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:47.040
  • THERE'S BEAUTIFUL DOCTRINE, BUT I WOULD
  • 00:15:47.060 --> 00:15:49.050
  • LOVE TO SEE SOME OF THESE WONDERFUL GRAY HAIRED,
  • 00:15:49.070 --> 00:15:52.040
  • ACTUALLY SOME OF THEM ARE DARK HAIRED, TOO, MEN AND
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:54.270
  • WOMEN JUST CONSUMED WITH WHAT IS RIGHT.
  • 00:15:54.290 --> 00:15:57.030
  • AND IT'S HOW MANY LANGUAGES DOWN NOW, AND
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:59.110
  • JUST SAY, COULD YOU JUST SPEND TIME WITH HIM?
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:01.130
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:16:01.150 --> 00:16:03.060
  • - EVERYTHING WOULD CHANGE.
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:04.130
  • - SIMPLE.
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:06.020
  • - EVERYTHING WOULD CHANGE.
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:08.000
  • - MY FAVORITE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY STORY THAT
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:11.040
  • MY DAD TOLD IS HE GOT A PHONE CALL AS A MANAGER
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:13.090
  • OF A TV STATION, AND SOMEBODY SAID, HEY, DO
  • 00:16:13.110 --> 00:16:15.200
  • YOU HAVE TO BE A CHRISTIAN TO WORK HERE?
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:19.090
  • AND THERE WERE LAWS PERTAINING TO THAT BACK
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:22.010
  • IN THE DAY.
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:24.190
  • YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO -YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:26.250
  • CAN NOW, BUT THIS WAS 40 YEARS AGO, AND HE STARTED
  • 00:16:26.270 --> 00:16:29.090
  • TO SAY YES, AND JUST LITERALLY COULDN'T CHOKE
  • 00:16:29.110 --> 00:16:31.170
  • THE WORD OUT, COULDN'T SAY THE WORD YES.
  • 00:16:31.190 --> 00:16:33.120
  • - DON'T YOU WISH THE LORD WOULD DO
  • 00:16:33.140 --> 00:16:35.030
  • YOU SOMETIMES?
  • 00:16:35.050 --> 00:16:36.130
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:37.250
  • I NEED THAT ON OCCASION.
  • 00:16:37.270 --> 00:16:39.100
  • - CHOKE YOU.
  • 00:16:39.120 --> 00:16:40.190
  • [ LAUGHTER ] I DO, TOO.
  • 00:16:40.210 --> 00:16:42.130
  • - AND HE TRIED TO SAY THE WORD YES TWICE,
  • 00:16:42.150 --> 00:16:43.240
  • COULDN'T SAY IT, SAID, HOLD PLEASE.
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:45.050
  • PUT HIM ON HOLD.
  • 00:16:45.070 --> 00:16:46.260
  • SAID, YOU KNOW, HOLY SPIRIT, WHAT'S GOING ON?
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:48.170
  • PUT BACK ON THE LINE, SAID TO THE GUY, WELL, I
  • 00:16:48.190 --> 00:16:50.190
  • DON'T SUPPOSE YOU'D HAVE TO BE A CHRISTIAN TO WORK
  • 00:16:50.210 --> 00:16:53.120
  • HERE, BUT YOU MIGHT WANT TO MUCH LIKE IF YOU WERE
  • 00:16:53.140 --> 00:16:55.170
  • GOING TO GO TO WORK FOR AN HISPANIC LANGUAGE
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:58.070
  • CHANNEL, YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:16:58.090 --> 00:17:00.110
  • SPEAK SPANISH.
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:02.030
  • AND HE WENT, HUH, THAT'S A PRETTY
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:03.200
  • INTERESTING THOUGHT.
  • 00:17:03.220 --> 00:17:05.130
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAD SAID YES, I WAS GOING TO FILE
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:07.210
  • A COMPLAINT WITH THE FCC FOR YOUR LICENSE.
  • 00:17:07.230 --> 00:17:09.160
  • - SO IT WAS A BIG ISSUE.
  • 00:17:09.180 --> 00:17:11.280
  • - AND IT WAS A BIG ISSUE AND A MOMENTARY THING
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:14.100
  • WHERE THE HOLY SPIRIT NOT ONLY CAN GIVE YOU A WORD,
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:15.250
  • HE CAN CHOKE OFF A WORD.
  • 00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:17.110
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.130
  • - SO THE IDEA THAT THAT WAS IN A BOARDROOM KIND
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:22.160
  • OF BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT IS ONE OF THE FAVORITE
  • 00:17:22.180 --> 00:17:25.050
  • THINGS THAT I LIKE TO THINK ABOUT WHEN -AND
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:27.290
  • THAT HAPPENED RIGHT HERE AT TBN.
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:30.060
  • SO CONTINUE THE DISCOURSE, AND WE HAVE A
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:33.190
  • ROLL-IN, A COUPLE ROLL-INS WE'RE GOING TO GET TO.
  • 00:17:33.210 --> 00:17:36.110
  • GO WHEREVER YOU WANT TO GO HERE, AND THEN WE WANT
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:38.120
  • TO GET TO ONE OF THESE TESTIMONIES.
  • 00:17:38.140 --> 00:17:40.260
  • - THE REASON WE CALLED IT SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY IS
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:43.170
  • BECAUSE IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE A CULTURE YOU HAVE
  • 00:17:43.190 --> 00:17:46.290
  • TO CHANGE THE VERBIAGE.
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:49.180
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO CHANGE A CULTURE, YOU NEED TO
  • 00:17:49.200 --> 00:17:51.160
  • PUT SOME NEW LANGUAGE TO IT.
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:54.020
  • - REDEFINE.
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:55.180
  • - YOU GOT TO REDEFINE.
  • 00:17:55.200 --> 00:17:57.060
  • BECAUSE IF NOT, LIKE RIGHT NOW WHEN I SAY HOSE
  • 00:17:57.080 --> 00:17:58.120
  • IS, OH, YEAH.
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:17:59.260
  • WHEN I SAY SPEAKING IN TONGUES, OH, YEAH.
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:01.130
  • WHEN I SAY LIKE -ALL OF THESE TERMS ARE SO WORN
  • 00:18:01.150 --> 00:18:03.130
  • OUT AND EVERYONE THINKS THEY KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN,
  • 00:18:03.150 --> 00:18:05.270
  • AND IT MEANS SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO EVERYBODY,
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:07.290
  • SO WHEN WE SAID SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY, WE THOUGHT
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:10.160
  • TO OURSELVES EVERYBODY THINKS HOLY SPIRIT IS
  • 00:18:10.180 --> 00:18:12.250
  • NOT CONTEMPORARY.
  • 00:18:12.270 --> 00:18:14.160
  • WHEN YOU SAY HOLY SPIRIT, YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:16.100
  • PUT THE WORD CONTEMPORARY AFTER IT.
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:17.240
  • - WOW.
  • 00:18:17.260 --> 00:18:19.130
  • - THERE'S NO ONE AS CONTEMPORARY AS HIM.
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:21.170
  • THE PROBLEM IS FOR EVERY MILE OF TRUTH THERE'S TWO
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:23.180
  • MILES OF DITCH, AND PEOPLE ARE IN ONE OR THE
  • 00:18:23.200 --> 00:18:26.030
  • OTHER, SO ALL THE ONES OVER IN THE CHARISMANIAC
  • 00:18:26.050 --> 00:18:28.130
  • DITCH -I GREW UP CHARISMATIC -THEY LITERALLY --
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:30.100
  • - THEY DIDN'T CALL IT THAT.
  • 00:18:30.120 --> 00:18:33.060
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:35.130
  • - SO WE DON'T PICK ON A DENOMINATION.
  • 00:18:35.150 --> 00:18:37.120
  • THEY LITERALLY -THEY THINK THEY UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:40.290
  • EVERYTHING BECAUSE WHEN YOU USE A WORD, THEY JUST
  • 00:18:41.010 --> 00:18:43.050
  • TURN YOU OFF.
  • 00:18:43.070 --> 00:18:45.060
  • THERE'S A SPOT IN YOUR BRAIN CALLED BROCA THAT
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:47.270
  • AS SOON AS SOMEONE THINKS THEY NOWHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:18:47.290 --> 00:18:50.140
  • GOING, YOUR BRAIN SWITCHES OFF.
  • 00:18:50.160 --> 00:18:52.180
  • - WOW.
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:54.130
  • - THAT'S WHAT YOU DO TO ME.
  • 00:18:54.150 --> 00:18:55.200
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:57.050
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO TO ME.
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:18:59.130
  • - ALL THE WOMEN ARE GOING OH, YEAH.
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:03.100
  • - NOW I KNOW WHAT THE WORD IS.
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:05.060
  • - SALLY WOULD AGREE WITH YOU ON THAT ONE.
  • 00:19:05.080 --> 00:19:07.160
  • - BOB, TAKE NOTE OF EVERYONE LAUGHING IN THE
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:09.170
  • AUDIENCE PLEASE. THANKS. INSIDE JOKE.
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:12.130
  • - SO WHEN YOU TEACH SOMEONE, UNLESS THEY'RE
  • 00:19:12.150 --> 00:19:15.090
  • REALLY HUNGRY, I'VE STOPPED TRYING TO TEACH
  • 00:19:15.110 --> 00:19:19.040
  • CORRECT DOCTRINE. BY THAT I MEAN I'M NOT WANTING
  • 00:19:19.060 --> 00:19:21.140
  • TO TEACH INCORRECT BUT THAT'S NOT MY FOCUS.
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:23.080
  • MY FOCUS IS TO GET EVERYONE TO TAKE A STEP
  • 00:19:23.100 --> 00:19:25.090
  • AND EXPERIENCE WHAT CAN YOU DO.
  • 00:19:25.110 --> 00:19:27.250
  • ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT HAS BEEN
  • 00:19:27.270 --> 00:19:30.010
  • MASSACRED BY THE BODY OF CHRIST IS THE SPIRIT
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:33.150
  • LANGUAGE THAT IS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:19:33.170 --> 00:19:36.040
  • JESUS VERY CLEARLY SAID STAY HERE IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:19:36.060 --> 00:19:39.110
  • UNTIL YOU'RE ENDUED WITH POWER. JUST WAIT.
  • 00:19:39.130 --> 00:19:43.180
  • MOSTLY WE'VE GOT A TON OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T BELIEVE
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:46.100
  • IN THE SPIRIT LANGUAGE, SOME PEOPLE CALL IT
  • 00:19:46.120 --> 00:19:48.170
  • PRAYING IN OTHER TONGUES, SOME CALLED SPEAKING IN
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:50.270
  • HOLY GHOST, SOME CALL IT PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:53.230
  • THERE'S DIFFERENT TERMS THAT ARE USED, BUT IT'S
  • 00:19:53.250 --> 00:19:55.280
  • BASICALLY YOUR SPIRIT PRAYING WITH HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:20:01.200
  • INSIDE OF YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:20:01.220 --> 00:20:03.170
  • HE'S ASSISTING YOU, HE'S HELPING YOU.
  • 00:20:03.190 --> 00:20:05.130
  • IT MAKES YOU ALWAYS ONE HUNDRED PERCENT ACCURATE.
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:09.100
  • AND WHEN YOU PRAY IN THIS LANGUAGE THAT EVERY
  • 00:20:09.120 --> 00:20:13.040
  • OTHER RELIGION WOULD GIVE ANYTHING FOR.
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:16.170
  • IF I SAID I'LL GIVE YOU A LANGUAGE, AND WHEN YOU
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:18.290
  • SPEAK IN THIS LANGUAGE, YOU'LL FIND YOUR NIRVANA,
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:21.270
  • YOU'LL FIND YOUR ENLIGHTENMENT, YOU'LL
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:23.280
  • FIND MORE WISDOM, YOU WILL BE EMPOWERED, YOU
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:26.280
  • WILL NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH BURNOUT AND ALL THE
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:29.150
  • REST. YOU WILL BE SO SPIRITUALLY THAT THEY
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:33.210
  • WOULD NOT LEAVE IT ALONE.
  • 00:20:33.230 --> 00:20:37.030
  • BUT TODAY, THE CAMP ON THE OTHER SIDE GOES WE'VE
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:39.110
  • SEEN SO MUCH CRAZINESS AND WEIRDNESS, AND WE
  • 00:20:39.130 --> 00:20:41.170
  • DON'T WANT IT BECAUSE YOU REALLY DO.
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:43.220
  • SO THE KEY TO MUCH OF THIS IS TO STAY IN LIVING
  • 00:20:43.240 --> 00:20:48.030
  • IN A SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE.
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:51.010
  • AND THE THINGS THAT JESUS TALKED ABOUT WERE A
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:53.280
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, IT WAS PRAYING, OKAY, IN
  • 00:20:54.000 --> 00:20:58.220
  • OTHER TONGUES IS THE OTHER TERM THE BIBLE USES
  • 00:20:58.240 --> 00:21:01.160
  • FOR IT, SO PRAYING IN YOUR PRAYER LANGUAGE BUT
  • 00:21:01.180 --> 00:21:05.010
  • IT'S BEEN USED TO FIGHT DEVILS AND USED TO PREACH
  • 00:21:05.030 --> 00:21:07.020
  • MESSAGES, BUT NO ONE UNDERSTANDS IT EXCEPT GOD.
  • 00:21:07.040 --> 00:21:10.080
  • YOU CAN GO THROUGH ALL THE LIST OF BAD STUFF
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:12.220
  • THAT'S BEING DONE WITH IT. AND THE THING THAT PAUL
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:15.080
  • SAYS IS ANYTHING THAT WE DO AS A CHRISTIAN SHOULD
  • 00:21:15.100 --> 00:21:19.070
  • EDIFY THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU US.
  • 00:21:19.090 --> 00:21:21.160
  • SO ANY TIME SOMEONE THINKS THEY'RE USING A
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:24.030
  • GIFT, ANY OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT OR THEIR
  • 00:21:24.050 --> 00:21:27.000
  • PRAYER LANGUAGE, IF THEY HAVE OFFENDED OR BROUGHT
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:30.130
  • HURT OR HEARTACHE TO ANYONE AROUND, LIKE AN
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:33.180
  • UNSAVED PERSON, LIKE A PERSON WHO SHOULD NEVER
  • 00:21:33.200 --> 00:21:36.230
  • HAVE SEEN THIS RIGHT NOW, THEN YOU WERE NOT
  • 00:21:36.250 --> 00:21:39.120
  • SENSITIVE TO HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:41.180
  • HE WOULD NEVER EMBARRASS, HE WOULD NEVER SHUT DOWN
  • 00:21:41.200 --> 00:21:44.090
  • THE UNSAVED WATCHING.
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:46.050
  • HE WOULD DO IT IN A WAY.
  • 00:21:46.070 --> 00:21:47.220
  • SO PAUL TAUGHT US THINGS LIKE-- AND WE'LL NEVER
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:49.280
  • COVER THEM ALL, BUT IF THINGS AREN'T A CERTAIN
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:52.190
  • WAY, PRAY TO YOURSELF IN TONGUES.
  • 00:21:52.210 --> 00:21:55.230
  • THIS RELATIONSHIP, ISAIAH PROPHESIED ABOUT THE TIME
  • 00:21:55.250 --> 00:21:59.080
  • WE'D BE LIVING IN AND HE SAID THERE WOULD COME A
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:01.190
  • DAY WHEN HE SAID THEY THAT WOULD WAIT UPON THE
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:04.040
  • LORD WOULD RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, THEY WOULD
  • 00:22:04.060 --> 00:22:06.280
  • MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES, THEY WOULD RUN
  • 00:22:07.000 --> 00:22:09.100
  • AND NOT BE WEARY, THEY WOULD WALK AND NOT FAINT,
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:12.180
  • BUT YET IN TODAY'S WORLD WE ARE, AMERICA IS THE
  • 00:22:12.200 --> 00:22:16.200
  • BIGGEST USER OF ANYTHING THAT IS ANTI-DEPRESSANT
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:20.000
  • OR MOOD CHANGING AND ALTERING.
  • 00:22:20.020 --> 00:22:22.080
  • NINETY PERCENT OF THE DRUGS ARE USED HERE.
  • 00:22:22.100 --> 00:22:25.060
  • NOWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:22:25.080 --> 00:22:26.280
  • ANY STUDIES OF HAPPINESS OR-- WE'RE WAY DOWN.
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:31.070
  • WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTHCARE, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:22:31.090 --> 00:22:32.190
  • MORE MONEY SPENT ON THE HEALTHCARE THAN OTHER
  • 00:22:32.210 --> 00:22:34.160
  • COUNTRIES. SOME OF THE THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES HAVE
  • 00:22:34.180 --> 00:22:36.170
  • HEALTHIER PEOPLE THAN HERE.
  • 00:22:36.190 --> 00:22:38.090
  • THE ANXIETY IS OFF THE CHARTS.
  • 00:22:38.110 --> 00:22:40.040
  • AND THE VERY FIRST THING THAT HOLY SPIRIT DOES FOR
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:44.020
  • US, WHEN YOU GO INTO JOHN 14:16 WHERE JESUS SAYS
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:48.100
  • I WILL ASK THE FATHER, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU
  • 00:22:48.120 --> 00:22:50.100
  • ANOTHER COMFORTER.
  • 00:22:50.120 --> 00:22:52.070
  • WE THINK, WHEN I THINK OF COMFORTER, I THINK OF A
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:53.270
  • FUZZY BLANKET. WHAT A WIMPY LOOK AT THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:22:53.290 --> 00:22:57.090
  • BUT IT LITERALLY MEANS THIS SHALOM PEACE WOULD
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:23:02.020
  • COME IN AND IT CHANGES YOU.
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:05.090
  • IF YOU'RE LEADING AN ORGANIZATION AND HOLY
  • 00:23:05.110 --> 00:23:07.030
  • SPIRIT BRINGS COMFORT, HE BRINGS A PEACE,
  • 00:23:07.050 --> 00:23:10.090
  • AND PEACE BRINGS CONFIDENCE.
  • 00:23:10.110 --> 00:23:12.220
  • IN THE MIDST OF WHATEVER'S GOING ON
  • 00:23:12.240 --> 00:23:14.050
  • AROUND YOU, YOU-- SEE, THE WORLD'S PEACE HAS TO HAVE
  • 00:23:14.070 --> 00:23:17.140
  • RESOLVE TO PROBLEMS.
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:19.240
  • IF THERE'S NO RESOLVE TO PROBLEMS, YOU CAN'T TALK
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:22.080
  • TO THAT GUY, HE'S FREAKING OUT, STRESSED
  • 00:23:22.100 --> 00:23:24.120
  • OUT, DAY AFTER DAY, HIS HEALTH IS SWITCHED ONTO
  • 00:23:24.140 --> 00:23:27.100
  • STRESS MODE WHICH IS FIGHT AND FLIGHT, SHUNTS
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:30.030
  • ALL THE BLOOD TO HIS EXTREMITIES.
  • 00:23:30.050 --> 00:23:32.230
  • DAY AFTER DAY, WE KNOW FROM OUR DOCTORS THAT FOR
  • 00:23:32.250 --> 00:23:35.150
  • YEARS PEOPLE HAVE LIVED IN A STRESSED OUT WAY AND
  • 00:23:35.170 --> 00:23:39.040
  • THEY CAN'T SHUT IT OFF SO WHAT HAPPENS IS SICKNESS
  • 00:23:39.060 --> 00:23:41.260
  • AND DISEASE-- WELL OVER 80 PERCENT OF ALL DISEASE
  • 00:23:41.280 --> 00:23:44.140
  • TODAY IN AMERICA IS PSYCHOSOMATIC IN ORIGIN.
  • 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:47.130
  • THERE IS NO PEACE.
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:49.270
  • IF YOU WOULD JUST SPEND TIME WITH HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:23:49.290 --> 00:23:52.270
  • JUST RENEW YOUR MIND WITH THE WORD AND USE THAT
  • 00:23:52.290 --> 00:23:56.090
  • SPIRIT LANGUAGE OR HOLY SPIRIT PRAYS THROUGH YOU,
  • 00:23:56.110 --> 00:24:00.060
  • HE GOES STRAIGHT TO THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:24:00.080 --> 00:24:02.040
  • AND THE SPIRIT LANGUAGE, PRAYING IN TONGUES FOR
  • 00:24:02.060 --> 00:24:05.220
  • EXAMPLE, IS MAJORITY A DEVOTIONAL LANGUAGE.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:10.270
  • WE HAVE SOME GUIDELINES IN 1 CORINTHIANS 14 FOR
  • 00:24:10.290 --> 00:24:13.180
  • PUBLIC USE, BUT PAUL SAID I PRAY IN TONGUES MORE
  • 00:24:13.200 --> 00:24:16.210
  • THAN YOU ALL, AND HE HAD TO TELL THEM BECAUSE
  • 00:24:16.230 --> 00:24:18.290
  • THEY DIDN'T KNOW. WHY DIDN'T THEY KNOW?
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:21.240
  • - LAURIE: BECAUSE HE DIDN'T DO IT IN PUBLIC.
  • 00:24:21.260 --> 00:24:23.080
  • - HE PRAYED TO HIMSELF AND IN PRIVATE.
  • 00:24:23.100 --> 00:24:25.020
  • BUT WHEN HE DID THAT, THESE RIVERS OF LIVING WATER
  • 00:24:25.040 --> 00:24:27.000
  • THAT FLOWED OUT OF HIM, THEY BROUGHT SUCH PEACE
  • 00:24:27.020 --> 00:24:30.060
  • THAT GOING ONTO A SHIP KNOWING HE'S GONNA BE
  • 00:24:30.080 --> 00:24:32.140
  • SHIPWRECKED AND SPENT A WHOLE NIGHT AND A DAY IN
  • 00:24:32.160 --> 00:24:34.260
  • THE DEEP FLOATING IN SHARK INFESTED WATERS,
  • 00:24:34.280 --> 00:24:37.020
  • HE'D STILL GO. THAT PEACE.
  • 00:24:37.040 --> 00:24:39.040
  • IF EVERYBODY WOULD SIMPLY BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THIS
  • 00:24:39.060 --> 00:24:42.180
  • INCREDIBLE HELPER THAT THE FIRST WORD OF THE
  • 00:24:42.200 --> 00:24:45.090
  • SEVEN IN THE AMPLIFIED IS COMFORTER, COUNSELOR,
  • 00:24:45.110 --> 00:24:47.120
  • HELPER, INTERCESSOR, ADVOCATE, STRENGTHENER,
  • 00:24:47.140 --> 00:24:49.110
  • STANDBY. IF WE PICKED ON ONE MORE, WE'LL GO TO ONE OF
  • 00:24:49.130 --> 00:24:52.130
  • THESE FILMS. COMFORTER IS THIS INCREDIBLE PEACE
  • 00:24:52.150 --> 00:24:55.120
  • AND YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:24:55.140 --> 00:24:57.070
  • WHAT ABOUT THE WORD ADVOCATE?
  • 00:24:57.090 --> 00:24:59.210
  • IT'S THE WORD LAWYER.
  • 00:24:59.230 --> 00:25:01.060
  • NOW WE KNOW JESUS IS OUR ADVOCATE AT THE RIGHT
  • 00:25:01.080 --> 00:25:04.090
  • HAND OF THE FATHER, BUT DID YOU KNOW HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:25:04.110 --> 00:25:07.010
  • IS OUR ADVOCATE?
  • 00:25:07.030 --> 00:25:08.230
  • NOW SOME OF YOU WHO STRUGGLE WITH SELF-WORTH
  • 00:25:08.250 --> 00:25:11.250
  • AND YOU'RE YOUR OWN WORST NIGHTMARE IN YOUR HEAD,
  • 00:25:11.270 --> 00:25:15.230
  • OKAY, THERE IS A LAWYER ON THE INSIDE OF EVERY
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:18.170
  • ONE OF YOU IN THIS STUDIO AUDIENCE, AND EVERYBODY
  • 00:25:18.190 --> 00:25:20.100
  • WATCHING THAT TAKES YOU ON.
  • 00:25:20.120 --> 00:25:22.070
  • "YOU'RE STUPID. YOU'RE DUMB. YOU DON'T LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:25:22.090 --> 00:25:23.200
  • "SHE LOOKS BETTER THAN YOU. YOU'RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT."
  • 00:25:23.220 --> 00:25:25.230
  • IT IS LIKE 1300 WORDS A MINUTE, PSYCHOLOGISTS
  • 00:25:25.250 --> 00:25:29.160
  • TELL US, THAT YOUR INNER VOICE IS ATTACKING YOU.
  • 00:25:29.180 --> 00:25:32.220
  • I'M SPEAKING AT 150 WORDS A MINUTE AND YOUR BRAIN
  • 00:25:32.240 --> 00:25:35.200
  • IS GOING [ZZZZZZ] AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:25:35.220 --> 00:25:38.220
  • HOLY SPIRIT IS THE LAWYER THAT WHEN YOU RENEW YOUR
  • 00:25:38.240 --> 00:25:43.070
  • MIND WITH THE WORD, THE WORD OF GOD BEGINS TO
  • 00:25:43.090 --> 00:25:45.240
  • RISE UP AND IT GOES TO WORK AND IT JUST SHUTS
  • 00:25:45.260 --> 00:25:48.280
  • DOWN EVERY LIE, EVERY ACCUSATION, EVERYTHING
  • 00:25:49.000 --> 00:25:51.290
  • THAT MAKES YOU FEEL SMALL.
  • 00:25:52.010 --> 00:25:53.230
  • IT IS THE ANSWER. [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:53.250 --> 00:25:57.100
  • IT IS THE ANSWER.
  • 00:25:57.120 --> 00:25:59.180
  • IT'S THE ANSWER TO THIS INCREDIBLE SENSE OF
  • 00:25:59.200 --> 00:26:03.230
  • SIGNIFICANCE, THIS INCREDIBLE SENSE OF
  • 00:26:03.250 --> 00:26:06.190
  • WORTH, THIS INCREDIBLE SENSE OF YOU CAN BE
  • 00:26:06.210 --> 00:26:08.220
  • AROUND PEOPLE SMARTER, BETTER LOOKING THAN YOU,
  • 00:26:08.240 --> 00:26:10.280
  • BIGGER, HAVE ACCOMPLISHED MORE, AND JUST BE AT
  • 00:26:11.000 --> 00:26:13.060
  • TOTAL PEACE BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT PLAYING THE
  • 00:26:13.080 --> 00:26:16.050
  • GAME OF I'M GIVING MY SELF-WORTH TO YOU.
  • 00:26:16.070 --> 00:26:20.180
  • THAT'S WHAT THE MAJORITY DO.
  • 00:26:20.200 --> 00:26:23.070
  • AND EVERY ONE OF THESE WORDS, WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:26:23.090 --> 00:26:25.080
  • TO BE ON STANDBY?
  • 00:26:25.100 --> 00:26:26.170
  • I WAS A PARAMEDIC ON STANDBY, AND WE GOT PAID
  • 00:26:26.190 --> 00:26:29.190
  • TO DO NOTHING UNTIL THAT SIREN WENT OFF, AND THE
  • 00:26:29.210 --> 00:26:34.040
  • SWEETEST SOUND EVERY POLICE OFFICER AND EVERY
  • 00:26:34.060 --> 00:26:36.110
  • PERSON AT AN ACCIDENT SCENE WAS THE SOUND OF
  • 00:26:36.130 --> 00:26:38.280
  • OUR AMBULANCE COMING DOWN THE ROAD BECAUSE WE WERE
  • 00:26:39.000 --> 00:26:41.120
  • ON STANDBY, AND WE'RE GONNA DO EVERYTHING IN
  • 00:26:41.140 --> 00:26:43.280
  • OUR POWER TO KEEP YOU ALIVE AND MAXIMIZE SURVIVORS.
  • 00:26:44.000 --> 00:26:47.010
  • WHEN YOU HAVE SPENT TIME WITH HOLY SPIRIT, AND YOU
  • 00:26:47.030 --> 00:26:49.290
  • BELIEVE, AND YOU PRAY IN THIS GORGEOUS SPIRIT
  • 00:26:50.010 --> 00:26:53.190
  • LANGUAGE WHICH BUILDS YOU UP ON YOUR FAITH, WHICH
  • 00:26:53.210 --> 00:26:56.230
  • DOES THESE THINGS, THEN WHEN YOU ARE IN A
  • 00:26:56.250 --> 00:26:59.250
  • SITUATION ARISES, STANDBY, THE SPIRIT OF
  • 00:26:59.270 --> 00:27:02.210
  • GOD, EVERYTHING HE KNOWS, EVERYTHING HE DOES COMES
  • 00:27:02.230 --> 00:27:06.220
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE UNDER ATTACK.
  • 00:27:06.240 --> 00:27:08.090
  • A SITUATION HAS ARISEN.
  • 00:27:08.110 --> 00:27:09.230
  • YOU'RE NOT ON YOUR OWN WISDOM, YOUR OWN STRENGTH,
  • 00:27:09.250 --> 00:27:11.100
  • YOUR OWN FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE, WHO DO YOU KNOW THAT CAN
  • 00:27:11.120 --> 00:27:13.200
  • HELP YOU OUT, THE SPIRIT OF GOD JUST,
  • 00:27:13.220 --> 00:27:16.180
  • IF WE COULD EVER TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT
  • 00:27:16.200 --> 00:27:18.230
  • HOLY SPIRIT AND THIS SPIRIT LANGUAGE, IT'S
  • 00:27:18.250 --> 00:27:22.040
  • GONNA BE ANOTHER-- THERE IS COMING A SEASON RIGHT
  • 00:27:22.060 --> 00:27:25.080
  • NOW WHERE WE'RE ON THE EDGE OF THIS.
  • 00:27:25.100 --> 00:27:28.080
  • AND WHERE PEOPLE ARE SAYING IT.
  • 00:27:28.100 --> 00:27:29.240
  • I'M SAYING SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY, OTHERS ARE
  • 00:27:29.260 --> 00:27:31.120
  • SAYING IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:27:31.140 --> 00:27:33.040
  • THEY'RE JUST TRYING TO GET THE CHURCH OF JESUS
  • 00:27:33.060 --> 00:27:35.020
  • CHRIST TO WOULD YOU UNSTICK YOURSELF FROM
  • 00:27:35.040 --> 00:27:38.110
  • THE TRADITIONS THAT HAVE KEPT YOU LOCKED
  • 00:27:38.130 --> 00:27:40.100
  • AWAY DOING NOTHING.
  • 00:27:40.120 --> 00:27:41.270
  • SO I JUST THANK GOD THAT FIVE YEARS AGO WHEN WE
  • 00:27:41.290 --> 00:27:44.260
  • MET EACH OTHER, AND THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT I'D
  • 00:27:44.280 --> 00:27:46.240
  • BEEN PREACHING FOR TEN YEARS IN CANADA AND TO
  • 00:27:46.260 --> 00:27:49.090
  • THE PEOPLE AROUND US, AND JUST YOUR SPIRIT JUST
  • 00:27:49.110 --> 00:27:52.260
  • RESONATED AND SAID THIS IS NOT ONLY A GOD MOMENT,
  • 00:27:52.280 --> 00:27:55.210
  • THIS HAS GOTTA BE A PILLAR.
  • 00:27:55.230 --> 00:27:57.210
  • NOW WHEREVER I GO, I'M SPEAKING NOW IN FRONT OF
  • 00:27:57.230 --> 00:27:59.280
  • DENOMINATIONAL LEADERS OF 150.000 CHURCHES IN 150
  • 00:28:00.020 --> 00:28:04.060
  • COUNTRIES. I WAS JUST IN BERLIN AT THE 500TH
  • 00:28:04.080 --> 00:28:07.110
  • ANNIVERSARY OF MARTIN LUTHER.
  • 00:28:07.130 --> 00:28:09.120
  • AND LEADER OF DENOMINATION, AFTER
  • 00:28:09.140 --> 00:28:12.070
  • DENOMINATION, AFTER DENOMINATION, JUST SAT
  • 00:28:12.090 --> 00:28:14.210
  • AND TALKED WITH ME, AND THEY SAID SPIRIT
  • 00:28:14.230 --> 00:28:16.240
  • CONTEMPORARY IS THE COMPLETE ANSWER TO OUR
  • 00:28:16.260 --> 00:28:18.290
  • DENOMINATION. IT'S THE ANSWER TO WHERE WE'RE GOING.
  • 00:28:19.010 --> 00:28:21.120
  • THEY ARE PICKING THIS UP SO FAST.
  • 00:28:21.140 --> 00:28:23.120
  • WE'RE TRYING TO KEEP UP AND HOW TO PRODUCE STUFF
  • 00:28:23.140 --> 00:28:25.210
  • AND BIBLE STUDIES AND THEIR EYE BALLS ARE
  • 00:28:25.230 --> 00:28:27.250
  • LOOKING BECAUSE THE WAY IT'S SPOKEN, IT'S
  • 00:28:27.270 --> 00:28:30.160
  • HOLY SPIRIT BUT IN A CONTEMPORARY WAY THAT
  • 00:28:30.180 --> 00:28:35.010
  • RECOGNIZES PEOPLE, THAT HONORS EVERYONE AROUND,
  • 00:28:35.030 --> 00:28:39.010
  • AND DOESN'T WANT TO BRING OFFENSE OR HURT
  • 00:28:39.030 --> 00:28:41.100
  • TO THE BODY OF CHRIST. THAT'S EVERYONE'S DREAM.
  • 00:28:41.120 --> 00:28:43.280
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE, I LOVE WHAT YOU JUST SAID.
  • 00:28:44.000 --> 00:28:46.260
  • I LOVE-- I'VE NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT IT.
  • 00:28:46.280 --> 00:28:49.250
  • THE SOUND OF A SIREN IS THE SWEETEST SOUND
  • 00:28:49.270 --> 00:28:52.020
  • TO SOMEONE IN NEED.
  • 00:28:52.040 --> 00:28:54.010
  • IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY, YOU HEAR THAT IN THE
  • 00:28:54.030 --> 00:28:56.220
  • DISTANCE, YOU KNOW, COMING.
  • 00:28:56.240 --> 00:28:58.220
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:28:58.240 --> 00:29:01.030
  • THAT SOUND OF A SIREN, AND HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT
  • 00:29:01.050 --> 00:29:03.160
  • TO DO, HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY, HOW TO HEAL.
  • 00:29:03.180 --> 00:29:07.110
  • - OKAY, WE'RE GONNA MOVE IN TO A TESTIMONY THING.
  • 00:29:07.130 --> 00:29:11.290
  • SO YOU BROUGHT THESE CLIPS.
  • 00:29:12.010 --> 00:29:14.020
  • THIS IS PAUL AND COURTNEY.
  • 00:29:14.040 --> 00:29:16.000
  • IT HAS TO DO WITH A BRAIN TUMOR.
  • 00:29:16.020 --> 00:29:18.260
  • SO WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL UNPACK THIS. WATCH THIS.
  • 00:29:18.280 --> 00:29:22.070
  • - COURTNEY: THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY TO ME MEANS
  • 00:29:23.160 --> 00:29:25.110
  • BEING SPIRITUALLY ALIVE, WHICH IS BEING
  • 00:29:25.130 --> 00:29:27.150
  • SPIRITUALLY LED AND SHARING THAT IN A
  • 00:29:27.170 --> 00:29:30.160
  • CONTEMPORARY, A RELEVANT WAY.
  • 00:29:30.180 --> 00:29:32.030
  • NOT BEING FAKE ABOUT IT, NOT BEING-- JUST BEING
  • 00:29:32.050 --> 00:29:34.190
  • COMPLETELY HONEST GIVING IT THE RAW TRUTH.
  • 00:29:34.210 --> 00:29:37.020
  • - WE GOT MARRIED, AND THE FIRST THREE MONTHS OF
  • 00:29:37.040 --> 00:29:39.110
  • OUR MARRIAGE WERE GREAT, BUT COURTNEY HAD
  • 00:29:39.130 --> 00:29:41.160
  • A LOT OF HEAD PROBLEMS.
  • 00:29:41.180 --> 00:29:43.130
  • SHE HAD EYE PROBLEMS, HEARING PROBLEMS,
  • 00:29:43.150 --> 00:29:45.050
  • AND IT WAS TOUGH.
  • 00:29:45.070 --> 00:29:46.190
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG.
  • 00:29:46.210 --> 00:29:47.290
  • SO WE FOUND OUT SHE ENDED UP HAVING A BIG BRAIN
  • 00:29:48.010 --> 00:29:51.210
  • TUMOR IN THE CENTER OF HER BRAIN AND IT WAS
  • 00:29:51.230 --> 00:29:54.000
  • CANCER. THREE MONTHS INTO OUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:29:54.020 --> 00:29:56.220
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ALWAYS ASKED ME HOW ARE YOU GUYS
  • 00:29:56.240 --> 00:29:58.180
  • STAYING SO POSITIVE? HOW ARE YOU GUYS ALIVE?
  • 00:29:58.200 --> 00:30:03.150
  • AND I SAID THE ONLY WAY THAT I CAN GET THROUGH
  • 00:30:03.170 --> 00:30:06.100
  • THIS IS KNOWING THAT THERE'S A GOD WHO IS UP
  • 00:30:06.120 --> 00:30:08.280
  • THERE, HE'S GOT PROMISES FOR US, HE WANTS AMAZING
  • 00:30:09.000 --> 00:30:11.230
  • THINGS FOR US, SO WE'RE NOT GONNA BACK DOWN,
  • 00:30:11.250 --> 00:30:13.180
  • WE'RE NOT GONNA BE SCARED.
  • 00:30:13.200 --> 00:30:15.030
  • - I REMEMBER ONE TIME THE DOCTOR WAS IN--
  • 00:30:15.050 --> 00:30:18.010
  • I WAS IN THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE IN BOSTON, AND
  • 00:30:18.030 --> 00:30:20.150
  • THE DOCTOR SAID WHAT KIND OF CHEMO DO YOU WANT?
  • 00:30:20.170 --> 00:30:23.230
  • WHAT KIND OF RADIATION DO YOU WANT?
  • 00:30:23.250 --> 00:30:25.040
  • AND I HAD ALL THESE QUESTIONS.
  • 00:30:25.060 --> 00:30:26.100
  • I HAD NO IDEA. DO I WANT THIS CHEMO?
  • 00:30:26.120 --> 00:30:28.170
  • DO I WANT IT WITH RADIATION?
  • 00:30:28.190 --> 00:30:30.040
  • WHAT GRADE OF RADIATION?
  • 00:30:30.060 --> 00:30:31.170
  • I WAS OVERWHELMED BY ALL THESE QUESTIONS, AND I
  • 00:30:31.190 --> 00:30:34.100
  • SAID I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, LIKE,
  • 00:30:34.120 --> 00:30:37.000
  • WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST?
  • 00:30:37.020 --> 00:30:38.150
  • AND SHE SAID WELL, WHAT DOES YOUR GUT SAY?
  • 00:30:38.170 --> 00:30:40.160
  • AND I WAS LIKE GUT, WHAT IS THAT GUT?
  • 00:30:40.180 --> 00:30:43.280
  • WHAT IS THAT GUT FEELING, THAT INNER INTUITION THAT
  • 00:30:44.000 --> 00:30:46.250
  • THE DOCTORS ARE ALL ACKNOWLEDGING BUT THEY
  • 00:30:46.270 --> 00:30:49.260
  • DON'T HAVE ANY SUPPORT OF WHAT THAT IS.
  • 00:30:49.280 --> 00:30:52.130
  • LIKE, WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:30:52.150 --> 00:30:53.270
  • AND I JUST KNEW THAT THAT WAS GOD'S LEADING.
  • 00:30:53.290 --> 00:30:56.020
  • SO WHAT WAS I GONNA DO TO BE MORE IN TUNE WITH THAT
  • 00:30:56.040 --> 00:30:58.090
  • GUT FEELING, THAT INNER INTUITION.
  • 00:30:58.110 --> 00:31:00.080
  • WELL, I WAS GONNA GO TO THE WORD, AND I WAS GONNA
  • 00:31:00.100 --> 00:31:02.120
  • JUST ABSORB IT. I INGRAINED MYSELF IN THE WORD.
  • 00:31:02.140 --> 00:31:05.150
  • AND WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD WANTS US TO BE
  • 00:31:05.170 --> 00:31:07.270
  • IN HEALTH, AND HE WANTS US TO PROSPER, AND HIS
  • 00:31:07.290 --> 00:31:09.200
  • PLANS ARE SO GOOD FOR US.
  • 00:31:09.220 --> 00:31:11.230
  • AND SOMETIMES WE DON'T BELIEVE IT AND THEN IT'S
  • 00:31:11.250 --> 00:31:14.270
  • HARDER TO TRUST HIM.
  • 00:31:14.290 --> 00:31:16.180
  • BUT WHEN WE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT, THAT'S
  • 00:31:16.200 --> 00:31:18.140
  • THE FIRST LEAP OF FAITH, AND THEN YOU JUST GO
  • 00:31:18.160 --> 00:31:20.140
  • FROM THERE AND IT KEEPS GROWING.
  • 00:31:20.160 --> 00:31:22.070
  • - SO IT WAS A MIRACULOUS SURGERY.
  • 00:31:22.090 --> 00:31:24.160
  • AND WHAT HAPPENED WAS THEY OPENED UP, AND THE
  • 00:31:24.180 --> 00:31:25.280
  • SPOT WHERE THE TUMOR WAS WAS IN THE HARDEST SPOT
  • 00:31:26.000 --> 00:31:28.270
  • TO GET AT. IT WAS RIGHT ON COURTNEY'S BRAIN STEM.
  • 00:31:28.290 --> 00:31:31.180
  • SO THEY HAD TO GO RIGHT THROUGH EVERYTHING.
  • 00:31:31.200 --> 00:31:33.150
  • IT WAS A HUGE TUMOR.
  • 00:31:33.170 --> 00:31:35.190
  • IT WAS BIGGER THAN A CHRISTMAS ORANGE.
  • 00:31:35.210 --> 00:31:37.140
  • AND IN THAT SPOT, USUALLY WHAT HAPPENS IS THEY HAVE
  • 00:31:37.160 --> 00:31:40.270
  • TO SLOWLY KIND OF WEAR IT DOWN.
  • 00:31:40.290 --> 00:31:42.210
  • THEY CAN NEVER GET THE FULL AMOUNT BECAUSE IF
  • 00:31:42.230 --> 00:31:44.170
  • THEY SCRAPE TOO MUCH, THEY CAN DAMAGE THE BRAIN
  • 00:31:44.190 --> 00:31:47.000
  • STEM AND THAT CAN AFFECT A LOT OF THE
  • 00:31:47.020 --> 00:31:48.180
  • FUNCTION OF HER BODY.
  • 00:31:48.200 --> 00:31:50.160
  • SO THE SURGEONS GOT IN THERE, AND THEY HAD
  • 00:31:50.180 --> 00:31:52.140
  • ALLOWED SEVEN HOURS FOR THE SURGERY.
  • 00:31:52.160 --> 00:31:54.070
  • AND TWO AND A HALF HOURS IN, THEY CAME OUT AND
  • 00:31:54.090 --> 00:31:56.080
  • SAID YOU'LL NEVER BELIEVE THIS.
  • 00:31:56.100 --> 00:31:57.250
  • THAT TUMOR FELL LIKE RIGHT OFF OF
  • 00:31:57.270 --> 00:32:00.140
  • COURTNEY'S BRAIN STEM.
  • 00:32:00.160 --> 00:32:02.060
  • - IT PULLED AWAY.
  • 00:32:02.080 --> 00:32:03.280
  • - IT JUST PEELED OFF OF THE BRAIN STEM AND
  • 00:32:04.000 --> 00:32:05.230
  • NOTHING WAS LEFT BEHIND, AND THAT WAS A MIRACLE.
  • 00:32:05.250 --> 00:32:08.150
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:32:08.170 --> 00:32:09.230
  • - LAURIE: OH, I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:32:09.250 --> 00:32:11.220
  • - YOU KNOW, I MARRIED THESE TWO JUST
  • 00:32:11.240 --> 00:32:16.210
  • THREE MONTHS EARLIER.
  • 00:32:16.230 --> 00:32:19.040
  • HER, THEIR PARENTS ARE VERY CLOSE FRIENDS OF
  • 00:32:19.060 --> 00:32:22.030
  • OURS, AND WHEN THIS DIAGNOSES CAME OUT, THEY
  • 00:32:22.050 --> 00:32:24.170
  • TOLD HER THE TUMOR WAS IN HER BRAIN STEM, THAT IT
  • 00:32:24.190 --> 00:32:28.200
  • WAS THE WORST YOU COULD POSSIBLY EVER HAVE, AND
  • 00:32:28.220 --> 00:32:32.040
  • ALL THEY WOULD DO-- THEY SAID THIS GROWTH WAS THE
  • 00:32:32.060 --> 00:32:35.010
  • SIZE OF AN EGG IN THE BRAIN STEM.
  • 00:32:35.030 --> 00:32:37.060
  • SHE WAS PASSING OUT, BRUTAL PAIN.
  • 00:32:37.080 --> 00:32:39.120
  • THEN THEY FINALLY GOT IT CHECKED OUT.
  • 00:32:39.140 --> 00:32:41.010
  • THEY SAID WE'LL OPEN IT UP, AND WE'LL SHAVE OFF
  • 00:32:41.030 --> 00:32:44.180
  • SOME OF THE TUMOR TO GIVE YOU, BEFORE YOU DIE,
  • 00:32:44.200 --> 00:32:47.230
  • SOME PAIN RELIEF.
  • 00:32:47.250 --> 00:32:49.230
  • SO THEY'RE MY FRIENDS, SO I'M GETTING EMOTIONAL.
  • 00:32:49.250 --> 00:32:55.110
  • SO WE PRAYED, AND WE SENT THEM-- THEY ALL GOT THIS
  • 00:32:55.130 --> 00:32:59.030
  • BOOK. AND WHEN IT'S THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:32:59.050 --> 00:33:01.050
  • WHEN SOMEONE WANTS YOU TO PRAY, TEXT THEM THE
  • 00:33:01.070 --> 00:33:04.100
  • PRAYER YOU WOULD PRAY.
  • 00:33:04.120 --> 00:33:06.040
  • I WOULD TEXT THEM THE PRAYER SAYING IN THE NAME
  • 00:33:06.060 --> 00:33:08.240
  • OF JESUS, I SPEAK TO THIS GROWTH.
  • 00:33:08.260 --> 00:33:10.260
  • AND THEN I WOULD-- AND THEY WOULD ALL COPY IT
  • 00:33:10.280 --> 00:33:13.060
  • AND SEND IT TO ALL HER SISTERS, AND THEY'D
  • 00:33:13.080 --> 00:33:14.160
  • ALL BE PRAYING IT.
  • 00:33:14.180 --> 00:33:15.280
  • SO SHE WENT IN AND THE DOCTORS OPENED HER UP,
  • 00:33:16.000 --> 00:33:18.090
  • AND THIS WAS THE DOCTOR'S LANGUAGE
  • 00:33:18.110 --> 00:33:19.270
  • TO THE ENTIRE FAMILY.
  • 00:33:19.290 --> 00:33:21.140
  • THEY SAID WE HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS.
  • 00:33:21.160 --> 00:33:23.230
  • THIS TUMOR SHOULD HAVE ALL THESE ROOTS INTO
  • 00:33:23.250 --> 00:33:26.020
  • THE ENTIRE BRAIN STEM.
  • 00:33:26.040 --> 00:33:27.230
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PULL OUT.
  • 00:33:27.250 --> 00:33:29.210
  • AND THEN THEY OPENED HER UP, THEY SAID IT DROPPED
  • 00:33:29.230 --> 00:33:32.040
  • OUT. ALL DISCONNECTED.
  • 00:33:32.060 --> 00:33:36.020
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THE HEALING POWER IS ALREADY
  • 00:33:36.040 --> 00:33:37.210
  • DISCONNECTING HEALING THIS THING UP AND THIS
  • 00:33:37.230 --> 00:33:39.210
  • THING JUST DROPPED OUT.
  • 00:33:39.230 --> 00:33:42.040
  • NOW, IN THEIR STORY REALLY QUICKLY AN
  • 00:33:42.060 --> 00:33:43.120
  • INTERESTING THING.
  • 00:33:43.140 --> 00:33:44.240
  • JESUS DIDN'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH CHEMO AND LASERS AND
  • 00:33:44.260 --> 00:33:47.100
  • RADIATION AND SOME PEOPLE DO GO THAT ROUTE.
  • 00:33:47.120 --> 00:33:51.150
  • AND WHEN I TEACH IT, I TELL THEM IT'S NOT YES OR
  • 00:33:51.170 --> 00:33:54.060
  • NO. IF YOU WANT TO DO BOTH GO RIGHT AHEAD.
  • 00:33:54.080 --> 00:33:56.040
  • JUST PRAY THAT IT'S NOT GONNA CAUSE PROBLEMS
  • 00:33:56.060 --> 00:33:58.170
  • BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE GET INCREDIBLE MIRACLES
  • 00:33:58.190 --> 00:33:59.260
  • WITHOUT ANYTHING.
  • 00:33:59.280 --> 00:34:01.130
  • OTHERS FEEL LIKE THEY'RE GONNA TAKE A PAIN KILLER
  • 00:34:01.150 --> 00:34:03.160
  • DURING THIS TIME OR I'M GONNA HAVE SURGERY.
  • 00:34:03.180 --> 00:34:05.060
  • THEY DECIDED TO GO WITH RADIATION.
  • 00:34:05.080 --> 00:34:07.050
  • THEY WENT TO THE TOP CLINIC IN THE WORLD IN
  • 00:34:07.070 --> 00:34:08.290
  • BOSTON THAT HAD A CERTAIN BEAM THAT WOULDN'T CAUSE
  • 00:34:09.010 --> 00:34:11.160
  • TOO MUCH BRAIN DAMAGE, BUT IT WOULD CAUSE BRAIN
  • 00:34:11.180 --> 00:34:13.290
  • DAMAGE. AND THEY PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND THEY FELT
  • 00:34:14.010 --> 00:34:16.290
  • THEY WANTED TO DO THIS.
  • 00:34:17.010 --> 00:34:18.220
  • EVEN THOUGH THIS THING WAS SO POSITIVE, THEY
  • 00:34:18.240 --> 00:34:21.020
  • SAID THIS THING COMES BACK SO AGGRESSIVELY,
  • 00:34:21.040 --> 00:34:23.130
  • SO THEY WENT AND HAD THIS LASER DONE.
  • 00:34:23.150 --> 00:34:25.210
  • AND THEY STAYED AS A FAMILY FOR A MONTH OR SOMETHING.
  • 00:34:25.230 --> 00:34:28.200
  • AND WHEN SHE CAME BACK, IT HAD DESTROYED THE
  • 00:34:28.220 --> 00:34:31.010
  • NERVE ENDINGS IN HER FEET AND HER HANDS,
  • 00:34:31.030 --> 00:34:33.270
  • AND SHE COULDN'T WALK.
  • 00:34:33.290 --> 00:34:36.060
  • SHE COULDN'T-- IT HAD HURT HER.
  • 00:34:36.080 --> 00:34:38.000
  • SO I WENT TO THE HOME WHERE SHE WAS SITTING ON
  • 00:34:38.020 --> 00:34:41.150
  • THE CHAIR, AND SO I FOUND OUT ALL ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:34:41.170 --> 00:34:45.210
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE 25 YEAR OLD GIRL.
  • 00:34:45.230 --> 00:34:47.180
  • I SAID GIVE ME YOUR HANDS.
  • 00:34:47.200 --> 00:34:49.080
  • SO I GRABBED HER HANDS, AND I JUST SPOKE GOD'S
  • 00:34:49.100 --> 00:34:52.010
  • WORD OVER HER HANDS.
  • 00:34:52.030 --> 00:34:53.260
  • AND ON THE SPOT, HER HANDS WERE COMPLETELY
  • 00:34:53.280 --> 00:34:57.010
  • HEALED OF ALL THE NERVE DAMAGE.
  • 00:34:57.030 --> 00:34:59.060
  • THEY SAID WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN.
  • 00:34:59.080 --> 00:35:00.250
  • BUT HER FEET DIDN'T.
  • 00:35:00.270 --> 00:35:03.010
  • AND SO I GRABBED-- PUT YOUR FEET UP HERE.
  • 00:35:03.030 --> 00:35:05.040
  • SO I GRABBED HER FEET,
  • 00:35:05.060 --> 00:35:06.090
  • AND HER MOM WAS THERE AND FAMILY.
  • 00:35:06.110 --> 00:35:07.200
  • WE SPOKE OVER THE FEET, AND THE FEET TOOK A FEW
  • 00:35:07.220 --> 00:35:10.040
  • MONTHS FOR ALL OF THE RESTORATION TO COME IN.
  • 00:35:10.060 --> 00:35:14.220
  • AND SO PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN WHAT THE WORD SAYS
  • 00:35:14.240 --> 00:35:17.210
  • ABOUT ALL THIS BECAUSE THEY JUMP TO CONCLUSION.
  • 00:35:17.230 --> 00:35:19.270
  • IF SHE'D GIVEN UP ON THAT, IT WOULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:35:19.290 --> 00:35:21.140
  • HAPPENED. SO AN INCREDIBLE MIRACLE.
  • 00:35:21.160 --> 00:35:23.090
  • - WE'RE GOING TO PRAY, AND WE'RE GONNA DO THAT.
  • 00:35:23.110 --> 00:35:27.290
  • WE'VE GOT ANOTHER ROLL IN.
  • 00:35:28.010 --> 00:35:29.290
  • WE WANT TO GET THROUGH THESE TESTIMONIES, AND
  • 00:35:30.010 --> 00:35:32.170
  • THEN WE WANT TO PRAY SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY WITH
  • 00:35:32.190 --> 00:35:35.080
  • LEON. WATCH ED AND CAROLYN RENEWED SUCCESS.
  • 00:35:35.100 --> 00:35:38.210
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:35:38.230 --> 00:35:40.290
  • - CAROLYN: WHAT SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY MEANS TO ME
  • 00:35:41.010 --> 00:35:42.230
  • IS IN MY BRAIN, I HAVE TO REALLY DEFINE IT SO IT'S
  • 00:35:42.250 --> 00:35:44.290
  • VERY CLEAR AND FOR ME WHAT IT IS, IS WE COINED
  • 00:35:45.010 --> 00:35:47.120
  • A PHRASE THAT DESCRIBES THE PROCESS OF
  • 00:35:47.140 --> 00:35:51.100
  • CHALLENGING ACCEPTED TRADITIONAL CONCEPTS OF
  • 00:35:51.120 --> 00:35:56.010
  • HOW CHRISTIANS BELIEVE AND BEHAVE.
  • 00:35:56.030 --> 00:35:58.070
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY UNTANGLED THE WIRES OF
  • 00:35:58.090 --> 00:36:01.040
  • MISBELIEFS IN MY MIND SO THAT I CAN JUST BE FREE
  • 00:36:01.060 --> 00:36:04.160
  • TO BE MYSELF AND FREE TO SEE THE BIBLE FOR GOD OF
  • 00:36:04.180 --> 00:36:07.100
  • HOW HE REALLY IS.
  • 00:36:07.120 --> 00:36:09.070
  • AND IT ALSO REMOVES THE ROADBLOCKS OF TRADITIONS
  • 00:36:09.090 --> 00:36:12.200
  • THAT WE'VE ACCEPTED JUST AS NORMAL FOR SO LONG.
  • 00:36:12.220 --> 00:36:15.270
  • AND THESE TRADITIONS ARE BLOCKING THE NEXT
  • 00:36:15.290 --> 00:36:17.220
  • GENERATION FROM COMING TO CHURCH BECAUSE THEY DON'T
  • 00:36:17.240 --> 00:36:19.260
  • WANT TO DO THE THINGS THAT WE DID THAT DON'T
  • 00:36:19.280 --> 00:36:21.180
  • MAKE ANY SENSE. THEY'RE GOING IS THIS REAL?
  • 00:36:21.200 --> 00:36:23.150
  • IS THIS APPLICABLE? HOW DOES THIS WORK?
  • 00:36:23.170 --> 00:36:25.020
  • SO I REALLY LIKE THAT, THAT WE CAN BE FREE TO BE
  • 00:36:25.040 --> 00:36:27.190
  • OURSELVES, TO BE OUR AUTHENTIC SELF, AND SEE
  • 00:36:27.210 --> 00:36:29.190
  • GOD FOR WHO HE REALLY IS, AND HOW
  • 00:36:29.210 --> 00:36:31.030
  • POWERFUL HE REALLY IS.
  • 00:36:31.050 --> 00:36:32.250
  • - ED: I CAN TRY TO DO THINGS ON MY OWN, WHICH I'VE
  • 00:36:32.270 --> 00:36:35.280
  • MENTIONED TO YOU BEFORE I HAVE DONE THAT, AND I WAS
  • 00:36:36.000 --> 00:36:38.150
  • RELATIVELY SUCCESSFUL AS FAR AS SELLING
  • 00:36:38.170 --> 00:36:41.160
  • REAL ESTATE ON MY OWN.
  • 00:36:41.180 --> 00:36:43.020
  • BUT EVERYTHING FELL APART IN MY HOME LIFE AFTER
  • 00:36:43.040 --> 00:36:46.210
  • THAT, BEFORE I GOT SAVED.
  • 00:36:46.230 --> 00:36:49.080
  • BUT ONCE I GOT SAVED, IT TOTALLY CHANGED BECAUSE
  • 00:36:49.100 --> 00:36:52.100
  • THEN YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE AS TO WHAT
  • 00:36:52.120 --> 00:36:54.290
  • SUCCESS ACTUALLY MEANS AND HOW GOD CAN
  • 00:36:55.010 --> 00:36:59.050
  • USE YOU TO GIVE.
  • 00:36:59.070 --> 00:37:03.130
  • WHEN YOU'RE SENSITIVE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, I JUST
  • 00:37:03.150 --> 00:37:05.210
  • FIND THAT LATELY WE'VE BEEN HEARING GOD'S VOICE
  • 00:37:05.230 --> 00:37:09.210
  • AS FAR AS OUR GIVING, AND GOD'S BEEN MINISTERING TO
  • 00:37:09.230 --> 00:37:12.130
  • ME AS I'M GETTING OLDER.
  • 00:37:12.150 --> 00:37:14.040
  • HE SAYS I'M NOT DONE WITH YOU YET BECAUSE
  • 00:37:14.060 --> 00:37:16.110
  • YOU STILL HAVE EARNING POWER, RIGHT?
  • 00:37:16.130 --> 00:37:21.080
  • I MEAN, THAT'S THE WAY I GET AN IMAGE.
  • 00:37:21.100 --> 00:37:23.180
  • I HAVE EARNING POWER, AND HE CAN STILL USE US TO
  • 00:37:23.200 --> 00:37:25.200
  • FINANCE THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:37:25.220 --> 00:37:28.140
  • AND SO PEOPLE SAY TO ME ALL THE TIME, WHY ARE
  • 00:37:28.160 --> 00:37:31.030
  • YOU STILL WORKING?
  • 00:37:31.050 --> 00:37:32.180
  • I SAY WELL, BECAUSE I MEAN I'M INVOLVED IN A
  • 00:37:32.200 --> 00:37:35.020
  • CHURCH THAT IS KILLER AS FAR AS WE GET PEOPLE
  • 00:37:35.040 --> 00:37:38.260
  • SAVED ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 00:37:38.280 --> 00:37:40.250
  • I CAN'T GIVE UP ON THAT.
  • 00:37:40.270 --> 00:37:42.120
  • I'M NOT GONNA GIVE UP ON THAT.
  • 00:37:42.140 --> 00:37:44.050
  • SO HOLY SPIRIT STILL IS TALKING TO US AS LATE AS
  • 00:37:44.070 --> 00:37:48.090
  • TODAY AS TO HOW WE NEED TO CHANGE OUR GIVING.
  • 00:37:48.110 --> 00:37:51.200
  • AND TODAY HE GAVE US A NUMBER THAT WAS LIKE
  • 00:37:51.220 --> 00:37:55.140
  • CAROLYN SAID, WELL, THAT NUMBER CAN'T BE FROM THE
  • 00:37:55.160 --> 00:37:58.150
  • DEVIL, YOU KNOW, IT MUST BE A GOD THING.
  • 00:37:58.170 --> 00:38:03.100
  • SO WE'RE REALLY THANKFUL THAT HOLY SPIRIT AND JUST
  • 00:38:03.120 --> 00:38:08.100
  • BEING SENSITIVE TO HIM CAN REALLY HELP US BE
  • 00:38:08.120 --> 00:38:11.110
  • PRODUCTIVE IN LIFE.
  • 00:38:11.130 --> 00:38:14.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:38:14.050 --> 00:38:15.280
  • - THAT'S IMPORTANT, MAN.
  • 00:38:16.000 --> 00:38:22.270
  • SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS EXPLODING, AND IT'S JUST IN
  • 00:38:22.290 --> 00:38:27.060
  • ITS INFANCY IN MANY LIVES, AND THAT IS THAT IN MAN CAN GO
  • 00:38:27.080 --> 00:38:30.000
  • ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD AND RETIRE AND DO ANYTHING HE
  • 00:38:30.020 --> 00:38:31.230
  • WANTS, HIM AND HIS WIFE.
  • 00:38:31.250 --> 00:38:33.140
  • THAT MAN IS SO SHARP.
  • 00:38:33.160 --> 00:38:35.030
  • THAT COUPLE'S SO PROSPEROUS, AND HE STARTED TO GET THE
  • 00:38:35.050 --> 00:38:37.140
  • REPORTS IN THESE LAST FEW MONTHS ON WHAT'S GOING ON ON
  • 00:38:37.160 --> 00:38:40.040
  • THE MIRACLE CHANNEL, WHICH WE'RE IN AFFILIATION,
  • 00:38:40.060 --> 00:38:42.150
  • TBN, IN CANADA.
  • 00:38:42.170 --> 00:38:44.100
  • AND THEN YOU SEE WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE CHURCH AND THE
  • 00:38:44.120 --> 00:38:46.040
  • OPPORTUNITIES AND ALL THE THINGS, AND HE'S RETIRING,
  • 00:38:46.060 --> 00:38:48.270
  • HANDS IT TO HIS SON WHO'S A BRILLIANT LEADER, AS WELL.
  • 00:38:48.290 --> 00:38:51.090
  • AND HE LOOKS AROUND AND GOES, WE'VE GOT TO FINANCE THIS.
  • 00:38:51.110 --> 00:38:55.040
  • COMES BACK INTO IT, PUTS HIS FAITH TO WORK, AND THIS THING
  • 00:38:55.060 --> 00:38:58.070
  • -- HIS BUSINESS IS EXPLODING.
  • 00:38:58.090 --> 00:39:00.130
  • IF WE'RE GOING TO DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO DO FROM
  • 00:39:00.150 --> 00:39:03.230
  • BROADCASTING AND MAKING MOVIES AND CONTENT AND THE INCREDIBLE
  • 00:39:03.250 --> 00:39:06.060
  • BROAD BASE OF THINGS THAT GOD'S OPENING UP FOR US, WE
  • 00:39:06.080 --> 00:39:09.210
  • NEED MEN AND WOMEN THAT ARE GOING TO BELIEVE IT, AND IT'S
  • 00:39:09.230 --> 00:39:12.020
  • GOING TO COME IN INCREDIBLE, INCREDIBLE WAYS.
  • 00:39:12.040 --> 00:39:14.030
  • - OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.
  • 00:39:14.050 --> 00:39:15.290
  • I SAID THAT JUST A MINUTE AGO.
  • 00:39:16.010 --> 00:39:17.230
  • WE WANT TO GET ONE MORE TESTIMONY IN, AND THEN LEON,
  • 00:39:17.250 --> 00:39:21.130
  • YOU'RE GOING TO JUST KIND OF LIFT US.
  • 00:39:21.150 --> 00:39:24.100
  • THIS IS ERNEST.
  • 00:39:24.120 --> 00:39:26.000
  • THIS IS COMING FROM THE CHURCH IN CANADA, AND OVERCOMING
  • 00:39:26.020 --> 00:39:29.030
  • CANCER. WATCH THIS.
  • 00:39:29.050 --> 00:39:31.010
  • - WHAT WAS DETERMINED TO BE A NON-ISSUE, JUST LIKE A -- THEY
  • 00:39:31.030 --> 00:39:34.230
  • CALL IT A LIPOMA.
  • 00:39:34.250 --> 00:39:36.100
  • A CONGLOMERATION OF FAT CELLS JUST GOT TOGETHER.
  • 00:39:36.120 --> 00:39:38.140
  • IT TURNED OUT TO BE STAGE FOUR CANCER.
  • 00:39:38.160 --> 00:39:41.080
  • SO THEY SAID IF BY SOME MIRACLE, WE'RE ABLE TO ARREST
  • 00:39:41.100 --> 00:39:44.240
  • THE CANCER, THE UNFORTUNATE REALITY IS YOUR LIFE IS OVER
  • 00:39:44.260 --> 00:39:48.120
  • AS YOU KNOW IT. YOU'LL NEVER WALK AGAIN.
  • 00:39:48.140 --> 00:39:50.250
  • YOU'LL NEVER PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS.
  • 00:39:50.270 --> 00:39:52.230
  • YOU'LL NEVER FUNCTION AS A MAN AGAIN.
  • 00:39:52.250 --> 00:39:55.220
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO RAISE YOUR KIDS THAT WAY.
  • 00:39:55.240 --> 00:39:57.200
  • HE SAID, YOUR LIFE IS OVER.
  • 00:39:57.220 --> 00:39:59.100
  • MY MIND LITERALLY BOTTLENECKED WITH THOUGHTS, AND PEOPLE HAVE
  • 00:39:59.120 --> 00:40:03.060
  • ALWAYS SAID, FEAR, ANXIETY?
  • 00:40:03.080 --> 00:40:05.010
  • BUT I WOULD LIE IF I SAID THERE WAS ANY OF THAT AT THAT
  • 00:40:05.030 --> 00:40:08.190
  • POINT. WHAT CAME WAS VERSE AFTER VERSE.
  • 00:40:08.210 --> 00:40:11.160
  • BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS, YOU ARE HEALED.
  • 00:40:11.180 --> 00:40:13.150
  • NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER.
  • 00:40:13.170 --> 00:40:15.080
  • EVERYTHING THE BIBLE POINTED TO WHERE GOD SAYS, I WANT YOU
  • 00:40:15.100 --> 00:40:17.260
  • TO BE HEALTHY. I WANT YOU TO BE WHOLE.
  • 00:40:17.280 --> 00:40:20.120
  • SO I REMEMBER TELLING THE DOCTOR, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:40:20.140 --> 00:40:23.070
  • IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.
  • 00:40:23.090 --> 00:40:25.030
  • YOU DO WHAT YOU'RE CALLED TO DO, AND I'LL DO MY PART,
  • 00:40:25.050 --> 00:40:27.150
  • AND WE'LL BE FINE.
  • 00:40:27.170 --> 00:40:29.170
  • I SAID, I'VE BEEN AROUND TOO LONG, EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:40:29.190 --> 00:40:31.230
  • I'M ONLY IN MY 30s.
  • 00:40:31.250 --> 00:40:33.150
  • I'VE SEEN SO MANY MIRACLES AND THINGS THAT DEFY HUMAN
  • 00:40:33.170 --> 00:40:36.060
  • REASONING AND SCIENTIFIC LIMITATIONS AND MEDICAL
  • 00:40:36.080 --> 00:40:38.170
  • LIMITATIONS. I'M JUST GOING TO KEEP ON GOING.
  • 00:40:38.190 --> 00:40:41.130
  • AND THEY SENT PSYCHOLOGIST TO MY ROOM TO DEAL WITH ME.
  • 00:40:41.150 --> 00:40:44.050
  • IT WAS A BATTLE. WE DID GO THROUGH CHEMOTHERAPY.
  • 00:40:44.070 --> 00:40:46.240
  • WE DID GO THROUGH RADIATION.
  • 00:40:46.260 --> 00:40:48.170
  • WE WENT THROUGH A COUPLE OF MINOR SURGERIES, AND
  • 00:40:48.190 --> 00:40:50.240
  • EVENTUALLY, WE WENT THROUGH BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT.
  • 00:40:50.260 --> 00:40:53.090
  • I WAS TOLD I WOULD HAVE PERMANENT KIDNEY DAMAGE.
  • 00:40:53.110 --> 00:40:55.090
  • I WOULD HAVE PERMANENT HEART DAMAGE, THAT I WOULD NEVER
  • 00:40:55.110 --> 00:40:57.140
  • FUNCTION FORMALLY, REALLY.
  • 00:40:57.160 --> 00:40:59.190
  • I COULD EXPECT ALL THESE PROBLEMS IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:40:59.210 --> 00:41:02.010
  • WELL, SINCE THEN, WE SKY DIVE.
  • 00:41:02.030 --> 00:41:03.250
  • WE'VE CLIMBED MOUNTAINS.
  • 00:41:03.270 --> 00:41:05.180
  • I GO ON 72 MILE HIKES WITH MY SON IN THE WILDERNESS,
  • 00:41:05.200 --> 00:41:07.260
  • CAMPING IN WINTER TIME. WE DO SO MUCH.
  • 00:41:07.280 --> 00:41:10.030
  • SO TIME AND TIME AGAIN, WITHOUT PREACHING JESUS,
  • 00:41:10.050 --> 00:41:15.070
  • GETTING LOUD OR BOISTEROUS ABOUT IT "YOU JUST WATCH ME.
  • 00:41:15.090 --> 00:41:18.210
  • GOD HAS TO HEAL ME BECAUSE I'VE BEEN TELLING EVERYBODY
  • 00:41:18.230 --> 00:41:20.120
  • THAT I TRUST IN HIM." THEY WOULD COME BACK AND SAY,
  • 00:41:20.140 --> 00:41:22.230
  • WHY DO YOU HAVE THIS JOY? WHY ARE YOU AT SUCH PEACE?
  • 00:41:22.250 --> 00:41:25.170
  • WE WERE THERE ON YOUR BEDSIDE. WE SAW YOU DYING.
  • 00:41:25.190 --> 00:41:28.180
  • YOUR WIFE IS TWO FLOORS DOWN GIVING BIRTH, AND YOU'RE IN
  • 00:41:28.200 --> 00:41:31.220
  • PALLIATIVE CARE WITH A DO NOT RESUSCITATE ORDER.
  • 00:41:31.240 --> 00:41:34.110
  • AND WE CAN'T KEEP A DRY EYE THINKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT
  • 00:41:34.130 --> 00:41:37.040
  • YOU MIGHT DIE LITERALLY AT THE SAME MOMENT THAT YOUR WIFE IS
  • 00:41:37.060 --> 00:41:39.150
  • GIVING BIRTH, AND IT WAS JUST OVERWHELMING FOR A
  • 00:41:39.170 --> 00:41:41.130
  • LOT OF US IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:41:41.150 --> 00:41:43.060
  • SO WE NEVER DID MARCH AROUND THE HOSPITAL GOING, I'M GOING
  • 00:41:43.080 --> 00:41:45.200
  • TO BE HEALED. YOU JUST WATCH ME. IT WASN'T LIKE THAT.
  • 00:41:45.220 --> 00:41:48.110
  • IT WAS A FAITH THAT WAS MORE ABOUT JUST HOW WE ACTED AMONG
  • 00:41:48.130 --> 00:41:53.120
  • THE PEOPLE, HOW WE WERE WITH THE DOCTORS AND NURSES.
  • 00:41:53.140 --> 00:41:56.030
  • AND THEN WHEN THE HEALING HAD MANIFESTED AND THINGS TURNED
  • 00:41:56.050 --> 00:42:01.030
  • AROUND, EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SURGERIES AND THE
  • 00:42:01.050 --> 00:42:03.250
  • OPERATIONS, THEY WOULD COME, AND THEY WOULD ASK QUESTIONS.
  • 00:42:03.270 --> 00:42:06.160
  • WHY IS THIS? - WOW.
  • 00:42:06.180 --> 00:42:08.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:42:08.210 --> 00:42:14.060
  • - AMAZING.
  • 00:42:14.080 --> 00:42:15.280
  • - WHAT DID HE SAY?
  • 00:42:16.000 --> 00:42:17.210
  • HE SAYS, MY WIFE'S GIVING BIRTH TWO FLOORS DOWN,
  • 00:42:17.230 --> 00:42:20.260
  • AND I'M DYING TWO FLOORS UP.
  • 00:42:20.280 --> 00:42:22.270
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS, AND AN INCREDIBLE MIRACLE --
  • 00:42:22.290 --> 00:42:25.290
  • WE'RE GOING TO PRAY RIGHT NOW BECAUSE HE WAS PARALYZED
  • 00:42:26.010 --> 00:42:28.120
  • FROM THE WAIST DOWN.
  • 00:42:28.140 --> 00:42:30.060
  • A GROWTH ON HIS SPINE HAD SHUT IT DOWN.
  • 00:42:30.080 --> 00:42:33.020
  • WE WALKED IN THERE AND JUST PRAYED WITH HIM, ONCE WE'D
  • 00:42:33.040 --> 00:42:36.110
  • HEARD THIS NEWS, BECAUSE HE SEEMED TO BE FINE, AND THEN
  • 00:42:36.130 --> 00:42:38.190
  • ALL OF THE SUDDEN THIS THING JUST [SQUEEZING SOUND]
  • 00:42:38.210 --> 00:42:40.190
  • TOUCHED HIM, AND HE INSTANTLY GOT UP AND WALKED, INSTANTLY.
  • 00:42:40.210 --> 00:42:43.140
  • - THANK YOU, LORD.
  • 00:42:43.160 --> 00:42:45.060
  • - BUT WHEN THEY CHECKED UP ON HIM, THEY STILL FOUND
  • 00:42:45.080 --> 00:42:46.200
  • TRACES OF CANCER YET.
  • 00:42:46.220 --> 00:42:48.090
  • HE DECIDED AGAIN, I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND GET SOME
  • 00:42:48.110 --> 00:42:50.200
  • TREATMENT AND BELIEVE GOD THAT IT'S NOT GOING TO
  • 00:42:50.220 --> 00:42:52.190
  • HAVE SIDE EFFECTS.
  • 00:42:52.210 --> 00:42:54.070
  • AND I SAID, IF THAT'S WHAT YOUR DESIRE IS TO DO,
  • 00:42:54.090 --> 00:42:55.210
  • LET'S DO THAT.
  • 00:42:55.230 --> 00:42:57.090
  • I MEAN, IN ONE CASE, HE HAD A HOLE IN HIS HIPBONE THE SIZE
  • 00:42:57.110 --> 00:43:01.040
  • OF ABOUT AN ORANGE TO A GRAPEFRUIT FROM THE RADIATION.
  • 00:43:01.060 --> 00:43:04.170
  • AND THEN ABOUT A FEW YEARS AGO, HE CAME BACK TO ME IN
  • 00:43:04.190 --> 00:43:08.060
  • A BIT OF A PANIC.
  • 00:43:08.080 --> 00:43:09.260
  • HE SAYS, LEON, I JUST HAD ANY EXAM FOR CANCER, AND THERE'S
  • 00:43:09.280 --> 00:43:12.270
  • NEW LIFE ALL AROUND THAT HOLE.
  • 00:43:12.290 --> 00:43:15.080
  • THEY BELIEVE THE CANCER IS BACK.
  • 00:43:15.100 --> 00:43:16.280
  • HE WAS LOOKING AT ME.
  • 00:43:17.000 --> 00:43:18.180
  • YOU COULD JUST SEE EVERYTHING WITHIN HIM.
  • 00:43:18.200 --> 00:43:20.050
  • HE'S GOT KIDS AND A WIFE AND HAS BEEN GOING NOW FOR LIKE
  • 00:43:20.070 --> 00:43:22.070
  • TEN YEARS OR SOMETHING FREE, AND I SAID, JUST WAIT ERNEST.
  • 00:43:22.090 --> 00:43:26.180
  • GO IN AND GET THE REST OF THE CHECK UPS, AND LET'S BELIEVE
  • 00:43:26.200 --> 00:43:28.220
  • GOD. NOW GET THIS.
  • 00:43:28.240 --> 00:43:30.250
  • GOES BACK INTO THE HOSPITAL, AND THEY PUT HIM THROUGH A
  • 00:43:30.270 --> 00:43:34.030
  • BATTERY OF TESTS, AND THIS IS WHAT THEY TOLD HIM.
  • 00:43:34.050 --> 00:43:37.170
  • THEY SAID, THE BONE IS GROWING BACK.
  • 00:43:37.190 --> 00:43:40.110
  • - WOW.
  • 00:43:40.130 --> 00:43:42.000
  • - IT'S DEAD BONE, BUT IT ALL FILLED IN.
  • 00:43:42.020 --> 00:43:44.000
  • HE SPEAKS AT THE CANCER BANQUETS IN CANADA BECAUSE OF
  • 00:43:44.020 --> 00:43:48.200
  • THE MIRACLE THAT GOD'S DONE.
  • 00:43:48.220 --> 00:43:50.120
  • SO YOU WANT TO PRAY? SHOULD WE PRAY?
  • 00:43:50.140 --> 00:43:52.020
  • - PLEASE, LET'S DO IT. GO FOR IT.
  • 00:43:52.040 --> 00:43:53.160
  • - WELL, LET ME LOOK RIGHT IN HERE.
  • 00:43:53.180 --> 00:43:54.290
  • LET'S JUST PRAY.
  • 00:43:55.010 --> 00:43:56.180
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU HEAR TESTIMONIES LIKE THAT, THE
  • 00:43:56.200 --> 00:44:00.160
  • PRESENCE OF GOD IS ON TESTIMONIES, JUST POWERFULLY.
  • 00:44:00.180 --> 00:44:05.170
  • IT JUST BREAKS DOWN THE POWER OF THE ENEMY.
  • 00:44:05.190 --> 00:44:08.150
  • IT'S THE WAY WE OVERCOME THE ENEMY.
  • 00:44:08.170 --> 00:44:10.120
  • I'M GOING TO JUST SPEAK. LISTEN CLOSE.
  • 00:44:10.140 --> 00:44:12.050
  • FATHER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:44:12.070 --> 00:44:13.210
  • - THANK YOU, FATHER.
  • 00:44:13.230 --> 00:44:15.100
  • - I SPEAK HEALING AND HEALTH RIGHT NOW FOR THOSE WITH CANCER.
  • 00:44:15.120 --> 00:44:19.200
  • I COMMAND THE ASSIGNMENT OF THE ENEMY AGAINST ALL HEALTH
  • 00:44:19.220 --> 00:44:26.110
  • AND VITALITY TO BE DESTROYED. YOU ARE THE THIEF.
  • 00:44:26.130 --> 00:44:30.190
  • YOU ARE HERE TO STEAL OUR LIVES, TO KILL OUR FAMILIES,
  • 00:44:30.210 --> 00:44:34.260
  • TO DESTROY OUR WHOLE GENERATIONS.
  • 00:44:34.280 --> 00:44:38.000
  • WE COMMAND YOUR POWER TO STOP, AND IN JESUS' NAME, I PRAY
  • 00:44:38.020 --> 00:44:42.120
  • RIGHT NOW THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL REGENERATE THAT ENTIRE
  • 00:44:42.140 --> 00:44:45.240
  • BODY; THAT SAME SPIRIT THAT RAISED CHRIST FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:44:45.260 --> 00:44:49.060
  • DWELLS IN THEM, THAT QUICKENS THEIR MORTAL BODY RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:44:49.080 --> 00:44:52.230
  • IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.
  • 00:44:52.250 --> 00:44:54.270
  • - AMEN. - THANK HIM FOR IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:44:54.290 --> 00:44:56.280
  • - WE JUST THANK YOU, LORD.
  • 00:44:57.000 --> 00:44:58.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:44:58.190 --> 00:45:03.060
  • PRAY FOR RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:45:03.080 --> 00:45:06.100
  • WE GET A LOT OF REPORTS THAT THERE'S RELATIONSHIP ISSUES
  • 00:45:06.120 --> 00:45:10.140
  • THAT NEED TO BE IRONED OUT, AND I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:45:10.160 --> 00:45:13.250
  • HAVE MORE CONFIDENCE WHEN SOMEBODY CAN PRAY WITH THEM
  • 00:45:13.270 --> 00:45:17.140
  • ABOUT THAT. DO THAT FOR ME, PASTOR.
  • 00:45:17.160 --> 00:45:19.280
  • - I'M GOING TO PRAY, AND FOR RELATIONSHIPS, BUT I'M GOING
  • 00:45:20.000 --> 00:45:23.200
  • TO TELL YOU ONE THING: WHAT DESTROYS RELATIONSHIPS THE
  • 00:45:23.220 --> 00:45:27.140
  • MOST IS THE JUDGMENTS WE MAKE ON EACH OTHER.
  • 00:45:27.160 --> 00:45:31.080
  • GO THROUGH THAT, AND ANYWAY, SO LET'S PRAY.
  • 00:45:31.100 --> 00:45:34.210
  • AND FATHER, I PRAY RIGHT NOW FOR THE RELATIONSHIPS

  • INTO A MEETING.
  • 00:54:42.030 --> 00:54:43.150
  • YOU GAVE ME THIS GUY, THIS PRODUCER, THIS WRITER, AND
  • 00:54:43.170 --> 00:54:45.020
  • SAID TAKE IT OUT OF THE NEWS.
  • 00:54:45.040 --> 00:54:47.030
  • LET'S NOT MAKE IT A SWEET LITTLE CHRISTIAN MOVIE.
  • 00:54:47.050 --> 00:54:48.260
  • TAKE IT OUT OF THE NEWS.
  • 00:54:48.280 --> 00:54:50.130
  • MAKE IT GRITTY.
  • 00:54:50.150 --> 00:54:51.240
  • BRING EVERYTHING THAT WE'RE DEALING WITH IN
  • 00:54:51.260 --> 00:54:53.010
  • THE NEWS TODAY.

  • - IN THE REAL WORLD.
  • 00:54:54.160 --> 00:54:55.210
  • - IN THE REAL WORLD.
  • 00:54:55.230 --> 00:54:57.070
  • SO WE GOT OUR WRITERS TOGETHER FROM CANADA.
  • 00:54:57.090 --> 00:54:58.220
  • THEN WE MET, AND HE GOT THE ORIGINAL STORY,
  • 00:54:58.240 --> 00:54:59.270
  • THEN WE TOOK THIS THING APART.
  • 00:54:59.290 --> 00:55:01.190
  • IT'S NOT REALLY TODDLER FRIENDLY, OKAY?
  • 00:55:01.210 --> 00:55:05.210
  • IT'S NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING EVIL.
  • 00:55:05.230 --> 00:55:07.110
  • IT'S JUST IN THIS THING IS MURDER AND ADULTERY AND PAIN,
  • 00:55:07.130 --> 00:55:10.240
  • BUT THEN THERE'S ANGELIC PROTECTION.
  • 00:55:10.260 --> 00:55:13.180
  • THERE'S WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:55:13.200 --> 00:55:15.110
  • THERE'S HOW THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT WOULD WORK
  • 00:55:15.130 --> 00:55:17.080
  • THROUGH THESE PEOPLE.
  • 00:55:17.100 --> 00:55:18.260
  • SO I MEAN, THEY SHOT FOR A MONTH WITH INCREDIBLE ACTORS.
  • 00:55:18.280 --> 00:55:21.010
  • I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I FLEW IN THERE TO DO MY
  • 00:55:21.030 --> 00:55:23.000
  • PART, MY MOUTH DROPPED.
  • 00:55:23.020 --> 00:55:25.040
  • I MEAN, IT WAS JUST LIKE SEMIS AND TRAILERS, LIKE THE REAL
  • 00:55:25.060 --> 00:55:28.040
  • MOVIES, AS FAR AS I COULD SEE.
  • 00:55:28.060 --> 00:55:30.050
  • AND I'M MEETING THESE ACTORS WHO ARE DOING -- WE BLOCKED
  • 00:55:30.070 --> 00:55:32.070
  • OFF CITY BLOCKS FOR THESE RIOT SCENES.
  • 00:55:32.090 --> 00:55:34.200
  • I MEAN, IT WAS INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:55:34.220 --> 00:55:37.160
  • I'VE JUST GOT TO SAY WHAT YOU GUYS, TBN, FINANCED
  • 00:55:37.180 --> 00:55:40.270
  • THERE IS STUNNING.
  • 00:55:40.290 --> 00:55:42.270
  • I HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN IT YET BECAUSE THEY'RE STILL DOING
  • 00:55:42.290 --> 00:55:46.010
  • ALL THE TWEAKS ON IT, BUT THE STUFF THAT I'VE SEEN, I JUST
  • 00:55:46.030 --> 00:55:48.000
  • KIND OF WENT OH, MY! I WANT TO WATCH THIS.
  • 00:55:48.020 --> 00:55:51.090
  • - WHY ARE WE DOING THAT WAY?
  • 00:55:51.110 --> 00:55:53.240
  • WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
  • 00:55:53.260 --> 00:55:56.020
  • - OKAY, ONE OF THE THINGS THE PRODUCER, SHANE -- WHO I LOVE
  • 00:55:56.040 --> 00:55:59.190
  • WORKING WITH, HE'S BRILLIANT -- WHEN THEY WATCHED ME SHARE
  • 00:55:59.210 --> 00:56:02.200
  • THE STORY ORIGINALLY, THEY SAID WE HAD TO
  • 00:56:02.220 --> 00:56:04.130
  • MAKE A DECISION.
  • 00:56:04.150 --> 00:56:06.020
  • YOU'RE EITHER THE BIGGEST LIAR WE'VE EVER MET WITH ALL THE
  • 00:56:06.040 --> 00:56:08.220
  • MIRACLES THAT WE SHARED, OR THERE'S SOMETHING REAL HERE.
  • 00:56:08.240 --> 00:56:11.240
  • AND WHEN HE WENT THROUGH THE BOOK AND THE FIRST BATCH TWO
  • 00:56:11.260 --> 00:56:14.280
  • YEARS AGO, HE SAID, THERE'S NO WAY TO TELL PEOPLE THIS.
  • 00:56:15.000 --> 00:56:19.180
  • WE HAVE TO SHOW THEM.
  • 00:56:19.200 --> 00:56:21.250
  • AND THIS IS TO TAKE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY FROM THE PAGES OF
  • 00:56:21.270 --> 00:56:24.220
  • A BOOK AND TEACHERS AND OTHERS WHO TEACH THIS, YOU GUYS ARE
  • 00:56:24.240 --> 00:56:27.200
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY, LOTS OF -- AND HOW DO WE SHOW
  • 00:56:27.220 --> 00:56:30.130
  • IT IN THE REAL WORLD?
  • 00:56:30.150 --> 00:56:32.040
  • THE ONLY WAY WE'LL BE ABLE TO DO THIS IS IF WE DO SEASONS
  • 00:56:32.060 --> 00:56:34.160
  • LIKE THIS WHERE PEOPLE GET THE CHANCE TO WATCH IT.
  • 00:56:34.180 --> 00:56:38.020
  • WHAT HAPPENS WITH MENTAL ILLNESS AND ADULTERY AND MURDER
  • 00:56:38.040 --> 00:56:42.070
  • AND THIS GUY'S A COP AND HEARS FROM GOD.
  • 00:56:42.090 --> 00:56:44.130
  • THIS ONE'S A REPORTER JUST FINDING OUT ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:56:44.150 --> 00:56:47.010
  • THERE'S AN ANGEL IN THERE THAT -- IT'S NEVER BEEN SHOWN THAT
  • 00:56:47.030 --> 00:56:49.270
  • WAY BEFORE THAT I'VE EVER SEEN IN MOVIES.
  • 00:56:49.290 --> 00:56:51.230
  • THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE PIECE.
  • 00:56:51.250 --> 00:56:53.230
  • - IN THE LAST ONE MINUTE, AGAIN, WE'RE
  • 00:56:53.250 --> 00:56:56.040
  • TALKING ABOUT SMOKE TOWN.
  • 00:56:56.060 --> 00:56:57.290
  • IT WILL BEGIN AIRING ON TBN.
  • 00:56:58.010 --> 00:57:00.170
  • IN THE LAST ONE MINUTE, WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO WATCH
  • 00:57:00.190 --> 00:57:02.220
  • SMOKE TOWN AND GET?
  • 00:57:02.240 --> 00:57:04.280
  • WHAT ARE THEY GOING TAKE AWAY FROM WATCHING
  • 00:57:05.000 --> 00:57:07.180
  • EPISODES OF SMOKE TOWN?
  • 00:57:07.200 --> 00:57:10.100
  • - TBN MOVIES CONTROL THE CULTURE OF THE WORLD, AND IF
  • 00:57:10.120 --> 00:57:13.070
  • WE DON'T GO ONTO MOVIES WITH HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKS,
  • 00:57:13.090 --> 00:57:16.050
  • WE DON'T HAVE A VOICE.
  • 00:57:16.070 --> 00:57:18.070
  • AND SO THIS IS GOING TO HELP PEOPLE LITERALLY SEE AND BEGIN
  • 00:57:18.090 --> 00:57:22.060
  • TO BE IMPRINTED ON THEIR MIND AND SPIRIT.
  • 00:57:22.080 --> 00:57:24.250
  • I CAN PRAY FOR MIRACLES, I CAN SENSE DANGER AND KNOW THAT'S.
  • 00:57:24.270 --> 00:57:29.020
  • HOLY SPIRIT WILL USE ME, BECAUSE YOU'RE SEEING EVERY
  • 00:57:29.040 --> 00:57:32.040
  • DAY PEOPLE USE IT OF THE IT IS A FANTASTIC WAY TO BEGIN
  • 00:57:32.060 --> 00:57:35.080
  • TO DISCIPLE PEOPLE INTO THE MIRACULOUS.
