  • 00:00:00.120 --> 00:00:29.180
  • 00:00:29.210 --> 00:00:38.020
  • - WE HAD COLONEL JAMES DUTTON
  • 00:00:37.070 --> 00:00:40.070
  • HERE ONE YEAR.
  • 00:00:40.070 --> 00:00:40.280
  • MANY OF YOU REMEMBER,
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:41.230
  • HE WAS ONE OF THE PILOTS
  • 00:00:41.230 --> 00:00:43.290
  • FOR THE SPACE MISSIONS.
  • 00:00:43.290 --> 00:00:46.060
  • AND HE TOOK PICTURES FROM THE --
  • 00:00:46.060 --> 00:00:47.260
  • HE LANDED THE PLANE BACK
  • 00:00:47.260 --> 00:00:49.190
  • SAFELY WHEN THEY RETURNED.
  • 00:00:49.190 --> 00:00:51.100
  • HE TOOK PICTURES
  • 00:00:51.100 --> 00:00:51.260
  • RIGHT FROM THE SPACE SHIP.
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.200
  • AND HE WAS LISTENING TO
  • 00:00:53.200 --> 00:00:54.150
  • ONE OF MY SERMONS WHEN IN SPACE,
  • 00:00:54.150 --> 00:00:56.210
  • "WHO IS GOD."
  • 00:00:56.210 --> 00:00:58.040
  • SO HE TOOK THAT CD,
  • 00:00:58.040 --> 00:00:59.140
  • PUT IT IN A FRAME
  • 00:00:59.140 --> 00:01:00.080
  • ALONG WITH A FLAG FROM INDIA
  • 00:01:00.080 --> 00:01:01.150
  • AND A FLAG
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:01.290
  • FROM THE UNITED STATES;
  • 00:01:01.290 --> 00:01:02.240
  • FRAMED IT, CAME WITH ONE OTHER
  • 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:03.290
  • ASTRONAUT TO OUR OFFICE
  • 00:01:03.290 --> 00:01:05.100
  • TO PRESENT IT TO US.
  • 00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:07.020
  • AND JAMES DUTTON SAID TO ME,
  • 00:01:07.020 --> 00:01:08.110
  • HE SAID, "YOU KNOW,
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:09.030
  • OUT THERE,
  • 00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:09.260
  • THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY,
  • 00:01:09.260 --> 00:01:11.010
  • AND YOU'RE LOOKING
  • 00:01:11.010 --> 00:01:11.190
  • AT THIS TINY SPEC
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:12.180
  • WE CALL EARTH AND HOME,"
  • 00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:14.180
  • HE SAID, "THE GRANDEUR
  • 00:01:14.180 --> 00:01:16.070
  • WAS UNEXPLAINABLE."
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:19.020
  • THE INCREDIBLE VASTNESS
  • 00:01:19.020 --> 00:01:22.000
  • OF THE UNIVERSE THAT
  • 00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:23.030
  • WE LIVE IN, AND WE LIVE IN THIS
  • 00:01:23.030 --> 00:01:24.250
  • TINY LITTLE SPEC WE CALL EARTH.
  • 00:01:24.250 --> 00:01:27.180
  • HE SAID, "I WAS SO OVERWHELMED
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:30.140
  • THAT I WOULD LOOK OUT OF THAT
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:31.110
  • SPACESHIP AND SAY,
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:33.010
  • "HOW MAJESTIC IS
  • 00:01:33.010 --> 00:01:34.150
  • YOUR NAME, O LORD.""
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:36.080
  • THAT'S WHY THE ASTRONAUT
  • 00:01:36.080 --> 00:01:38.120
  • IN 1968, ON CHRISTMAS EVE,
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:42.090
  • COULD GO NOWHERE ELSE
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:44.080
  • EXCEPT TO THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:45.220
  • WHEN THEY WENT 'ROUND
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:46.120
  • THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:48.000
  • AND SAW EARTH RISE OVER
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:49.140
  • THE HORIZON IN THAT BRILLIANT
  • 00:01:49.140 --> 00:01:51.230
  • COMBINATION OF BLUE AND WHITE,
  • 00:01:51.230 --> 00:01:53.080
  • GARLANDED BY THE GLISTENING
  • 00:01:53.080 --> 00:01:54.150
  • LIGHT OF THE SUN AGAINST
  • 00:01:54.150 --> 00:01:56.070
  • THE BLACK VOID OF SPACE.
  • 00:01:56.070 --> 00:01:57.180
  • THE ONLY THING THAT CAME
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:01:58.180
  • TO THEIR MIND WAS,
  • 00:01:58.180 --> 00:01:59.160
  • "IN THE BEGINNING, GOD..."
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.220
  • ONLY GOD WAS BIG ENOUGH
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:05.090
  • TO CAPTURE THIS
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:06.210
  • AWE-INSPIRING REALITY.
  • 00:02:06.210 --> 00:02:09.210
  • THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:11.280
  • AND WHEN THE GLORY OF GOD
  • 00:02:11.280 --> 00:02:13.160
  • DEPARTED, WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:02:14.240 --> 00:02:17.240
  • ICHABOD WAS WRIT LARGE.
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:20.170
  • ELI WAS AN OLD MAN
  • 00:02:20.170 --> 00:02:21.290
  • AND UNFORTUNATELY HE'D MESSED UP
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:23.210
  • WITH HIS BOYS, AND TWO BOYS
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:26.090
  • WERE KILLED IN THE BATTLE.
  • 00:02:26.090 --> 00:02:27.260
  • AND THE MESSENGER COMES
  • 00:02:27.260 --> 00:02:28.230
  • AND SAYS, "I GOT
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:29.120
  • BAD NEWS FOR YOU.
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:30.180
  • YOUR TWO BOYS HAVE BEEN KILLED."
  • 00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:32.110
  • BUT THEN, THEY SAID,
  • 00:02:32.110 --> 00:02:32.270
  • "THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:33.220
  • HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM OUR MIDST,"
  • 00:02:33.220 --> 00:02:35.130
  • WHICH SIGNIFIED
  • 00:02:35.130 --> 00:02:35.270
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:37.290
  • AND HIS DAUGHTER-IN-LAW WAS
  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:38.230
  • ABOUT TO GIVE BIRTH
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:40.170
  • AND HIS DAUGHTER-IN-LAW
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:41.060
  • SAID, "I'M GONNA CALL
  • 00:02:41.060 --> 00:02:42.020
  • MY SON ICHABOD, BECAUSE
  • 00:02:42.020 --> 00:02:43.240
  • THE GLORY OF GOD HAD DEPARTED."
  • 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:45.210
  • NO MORE SUBSTANCE,
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:46.220
  • NO MORE LIGHT,
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:47.280
  • NO MORE PRESENCE.
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:49.050
  • THESE THREE REALITIES IS WHAT
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:51.160
  • GLORY ACTUALLY SIGNIFIES.
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:54.060
  • AND YOU HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:56.200
  • WHERE HE IS PRESENT.
  • 00:02:56.200 --> 00:02:58.160
  • WHERE THE GLORY OF GOD DWELLS,
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:03:01.050
  • THERE THE VOICE OF GOD IS HEARD.
  • 00:03:01.240 --> 00:03:04.240
  • THAT'S WHY, IN EZEKIEL 10,
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:06.200
  • HIS VOICE -- EZEKIEL 43:7 HERE,
  • 00:03:07.090 --> 00:03:10.090
  • "THE VOICE WAS LIKE THE SOUND
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:11.290
  • OF MANY WATERS."
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.100
  • NOW, WHAT I WANNA TALK
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:14.010
  • TO YOU ABOUT IS AFTER
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:16.020
  • THE TRANSFIGURATION EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:18.060
  • WHEN THEY GO BACK,
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:20.250
  • PETER TALKS ABOUT IT
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:22.140
  • AS AN APOLOGIST.
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:23.250
  • HE SAYS, "WE ARE NOT FOLLOWING
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.100
  • CUNNINGLY-DEVISED FABLES,
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:27.250
  • BUT WE WERE EYEWITNESSES
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:29.260
  • TO HIS MAJESTY."
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:32.150
  • "WE ARE NOT FOLLOWING
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:33.130
  • CUNNINGLY-DEVISED FABLES,
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:35.140
  • BUT WE WERE EYEWITNESSES
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:37.120
  • TO HIS MAJESTY,"
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:38.150
  • AS A LIGHT SHINING
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:40.070
  • IN A DARK PLACE.
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:42.050
  • AND YOU WOULD DO WELL
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.160
  • TO PAY HEED TO IT.
  • 00:03:43.160 --> 00:03:45.110
  • AND THEN HE SAYS THIS,
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:46.260
  • "BUT NOW, WE HAVE THE WORD OF
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:49.210
  • THE PROPHETS MADE MORE CERTAIN."
  • 00:03:49.210 --> 00:03:52.180
  • MORE DRAMATICALLY CERTAIN
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:54.230
  • THAN JUST THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:56.110
  • IN A DISPLAY OF GLORY
  • 00:03:56.110 --> 00:03:57.280
  • IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:03:57.280 --> 00:03:59.130
  • THAT CARRIES THE NARRATIVE
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:01.000
  • OF WHAT HE INTENDS
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:02.050
  • FOR YOU AND ME.
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.010
  • SO IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:04:03.010 --> 00:04:04.100
  • WHAT THE GLORY OF GOD INTENDS,
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:06.130
  • IT IS WHAT HE INTENDS
  • 00:04:06.130 --> 00:04:08.010
  • IN YOUR LIFE AND MINE.
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:10.050
  • AND IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:04:10.050 --> 00:04:11.080
  • HIS GLORY, YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:13.040
  • HOW FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY
  • 00:04:13.040 --> 00:04:14.260
  • WE ARE REALLY MADE.
  • 00:04:14.260 --> 00:04:17.170
  • WE ARE MADE TO REFLECT
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:19.150
  • THAT ESSENTIAL SPLENDOR,
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:22.070
  • THAT ESSENTIAL SPLENDOR
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:24.140
  • OF GOD'S SUBSTANTIVENESS
  • 00:04:24.140 --> 00:04:27.020
  • AND GOD'S LUMINOSITY.
  • 00:04:27.020 --> 00:04:29.080
  • WE NEED TO BE BRIGHT LIGHTS
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:31.010
  • IN A DARK WORLD.
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:32.100
  • NOW, WHY DOES THE GLORY DEPART?
  • 00:04:32.100 --> 00:04:34.070
  • I'LL RACE THROUGH THIS
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:35.080
  • VERY QUICKLY.
  • 00:04:35.080 --> 00:04:36.170
  • THE GLORY DEPARTS, NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:39.020
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NO
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:39.250
  • INTERNALIZATION OF THE TRUTH.
  • 00:04:40.100 --> 00:04:43.100
  • TRUTH IS NEVER INTENDED
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:45.060
  • TO BE A MERE EXTERNALITY.
  • 00:04:45.060 --> 00:04:47.130
  • TRUTH IS INTENDED
  • 00:04:47.130 --> 00:04:48.210
  • TO BE INTERNALIZED.
  • 00:04:48.210 --> 00:04:50.240
  • IT HAS TO BE THAT WHICH COMES
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:52.270
  • FROM WITHIN YOU, NOT JUST THAT
  • 00:04:52.270 --> 00:04:55.150
  • WHICH COMES FROM OUTSIDE YOU.
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:04:57.030
  • THAT'S REALLY
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:04:58.040
  • WHAT HAPPENS AT CONVERSION.
  • 00:04:58.040 --> 00:05:00.040
  • WHEN YOU ARE NEWLY BORN,
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:01.270
  • WHEN YOU AND I HAVE
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:02.170
  • THAT NEW BIRTH
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:03.150
  • AND THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:04.210
  • COMES AND LIVES WITHIN US,
  • 00:05:04.210 --> 00:05:06.080
  • THE DIVINE IMPERATIVE
  • 00:05:06.080 --> 00:05:07.220
  • TAKES OVER.
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:08.270
  • YEA.
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:09.160
  • NAY.
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:10.010
  • YEA.
  • 00:05:10.010 --> 00:05:10.190
  • NAY.
  • 00:05:10.190 --> 00:05:11.120
  • THAT VOICE THAT
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.070
  • COMES FROM WITHIN.
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:13.140
  • AND WHEN THAT VOICE
  • 00:05:13.140 --> 00:05:14.080
  • GETS GARBLED, IT IS THE WORD
  • 00:05:14.080 --> 00:05:16.040
  • TO WHICH YOU GO
  • 00:05:16.040 --> 00:05:17.110
  • TO FIND THE CLARITY ONCE AGAIN,
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:19.100
  • HOW HE INTENDED US TO LIVE.
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:21.170
  • IN THIS DARK WORLD TODAY,
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:23.260
  • WE GO ANYWHERE BUT HERE
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:25.210
  • TO FIND OUT WHAT GOD'S WILL IS
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:28.020
  • OF HOW WE SHOULD LIVE.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.200
  • HENCE, THE DARKNESS.
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:31.070
  • WE ARE AS CONFUSED A CULTURE
  • 00:05:31.070 --> 00:05:33.200
  • AS I HAVE EVER SEEN
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:35.080
  • IN 45 YEARS OF MINISTRY.
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:37.290
  • THERE ARE NO ANSWERS OUT THERE.
  • 00:05:37.290 --> 00:05:40.170
  • IN FACT, THERE ARE ONLY
  • 00:05:40.170 --> 00:05:42.000
  • QUESTIONS AFTER QUESTIONS
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:43.090
  • AFTER QUESTIONS.
  • 00:05:43.090 --> 00:05:44.180
  • AND WHEN YOU SEE A PERSON
  • 00:05:44.180 --> 00:05:47.010
  • FROM WHOSE EYES YOU SEE
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:48.060
  • THE BRIGHTNESS OF GOD'S PRESENCE
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:50.140
  • AND FROM WHOSE WORDS
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:51.170
  • YOU HEAR THE SUBSTANTIVENESS
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.070
  • OF WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT,
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:55.000
  • YOU UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:05:55.000 --> 00:05:57.070
  • KNOWING CHRIST BRINGS THAT
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:59.110
  • BRILLIANT LIGHT IN YOUR EYE.
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:00.280
  • AS WE WERE LISTENING
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:02.050
  • TO JACK AND SHAWNA LAST NIGHT,
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:04.120
  • HE SAW SOMETHING IN HER EYES
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:05.190
  • THAT HE'D NEVER SEEN
  • 00:06:05.190 --> 00:06:06.050
  • ANYWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:06:06.050 --> 00:06:07.150
  • HE SAW THAT BEAUTY,
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:08.200
  • SAW THAT BRILLIANCE.
  • 00:06:08.200 --> 00:06:10.040
  • WHY IN HEAVEN'S NAME
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:11.250
  • ARE YOU LOOKING SO HAPPY?
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:14.060
  • WHAT MAKES YOU SHINE LIKE THIS?
  • 00:06:14.070 --> 00:06:17.070
  • YOU KNOW, THERE ARE TWO GREAT
  • 00:06:17.070 --> 00:06:19.220
  • SOCCER PLAYERS IN OUR TIME,
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:21.030
  • AMONGST MANY OTHERS, ONE IS
  • 00:06:21.030 --> 00:06:23.010
  • LIONEL MESSI FROM ARGENTINA
  • 00:06:23.010 --> 00:06:25.100
  • AND THE OTHER IS
  • 00:06:25.100 --> 00:06:26.150
  • CRISTIANO RONALDO FROM PORTUGAL.
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:29.290
  • AND THEY ARE ALWAYS
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:30.220
  • AT EACH OTHER
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:31.120
  • AS TO WHO IS NUMBER ONE
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:32.050
  • AND WHO IS NUMBER TWO.
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:33.150
  • AND RONALDO WAS BEING
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.110
  • INTERVIEWED BY THE MEDIA
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:35.230
  • AND HE MADE THE COMMENT THAT
  • 00:06:35.230 --> 00:06:37.130
  • HE BELIEVED GOD HAD SENT HIM
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:38.290
  • INTO THE WORLD SO THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:40.140
  • AND SHOW HOW SOCCER
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:44.220
  • OUGHT TO BE PLAYED.
  • 00:06:44.220 --> 00:06:46.030
  • SO WHEN HE FINISHED THAT
  • 00:06:46.030 --> 00:06:46.230
  • STATEMENT, ANOTHER INTERVIEWER
  • 00:06:46.230 --> 00:06:48.140
  • WENT TO LIONEL MESSI AND SAID,
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:49.110
  • "WHAT DO YOU THINK OF
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:50.030
  • RONALDO'S STATEMENT?
  • 00:06:50.030 --> 00:06:51.240
  • THAT GOD SENT HIM INTO THE WORLD
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:53.110
  • IN ORDER TO TEACH PEOPLE
  • 00:06:53.110 --> 00:06:54.090
  • HOW TO PLAY SOCCER?"
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:55.210
  • MESSI SAID, "I HONESTLY TELL YOU
  • 00:06:55.210 --> 00:06:57.120
  • I DON'T REMEMBER SENDING HIM."
  • 00:06:57.120 --> 00:06:59.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:04.290
  • WE HAVE THIS
  • 00:07:04.290 --> 00:07:05.230
  • EXTRAORDINARY OPINION
  • 00:07:05.230 --> 00:07:08.020
  • OF HOW GREAT WE ARE.
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:09.280
  • AND ATHLETES, I SUPPOSE IT GOES
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.260
  • WITH THAT KIND OF ABILITY,
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:13.100
  • TO BE BRAGGARTS AS WELL.
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:15.030
  • VERY FEW PEOPLE BRAG AS MUCH
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:17.100
  • AS AN ATHLETE DOES.
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:18.130
  • OF COURSE, WHEN YOU CAN
  • 00:07:18.130 --> 00:07:19.160
  • PITCH A NO-HITTER,
  • 00:07:19.160 --> 00:07:20.210
  • YOU FEEL PRETTY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:07:20.210 --> 00:07:22.150
  • WHEN YOU CAN HIT A GRAND SLAM,
  • 00:07:22.150 --> 00:07:23.240
  • YOU FEEL YOU'VE REALLY
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:24.220
  • MADE IT BIG.
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:25.220
  • MILLIONS HAVE
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:26.090
  • WATCHED YOU DO THAT.
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:28.020
  • BUT THEN THE BODY BEGINS
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:28.210
  • TO GET FRAIL
  • 00:07:28.210 --> 00:07:30.020
  • AND YOU NO LONGER
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:30.190
  • CAN THROW LIKE THAT,
  • 00:07:30.190 --> 00:07:31.280
  • YOU NO LONGER CAN HIT LIKE THAT,
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:33.240
  • AND THEN YOU WONDER
  • 00:07:33.240 --> 00:07:34.150
  • "WHERE'S THE GLORY?"
  • 00:07:34.150 --> 00:07:36.060
  • "WHEREIN LIES THE GLORY?"
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:38.210
  • THE PEOPLE I HAVE SEEN
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:40.080
  • WHO HAVE THAT GLORY MOST
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:42.020
  • ARE THOSE WHO HAVE REALLY LIVED
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:44.190
  • WITH THE INTERNAL IMPERATIVES
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:46.220
  • OF HOW GOD WANTS YOU TO LIVE.
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:49.190
  • I'LL TELL YOU THE TRUTH,
  • 00:07:49.190 --> 00:07:51.110
  • AND I'M NOT MAKING THIS UP.
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:54.080
  • MANY A TIME, I WISHED TO MYSELF
  • 00:07:54.180 --> 00:07:57.180
  • I COULD SAY, "I'M DONE."
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:59.250
  • I'VE PAID MY DUES...45 YEARS,
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:02.130
  • MILLIONS OF MILES.
  • 00:08:02.130 --> 00:08:04.180
  • I CAN TELL YOU WHAT EVERY
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:05.220
  • AIRCRAFT LOOKS LIKE, FEELS LIKE,
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:08.200
  • AND WHO DOES THE BEST SERVICE
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:10.030
  • AND WHO DOESN'T DO
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:10.220
  • VERY GOOD SERVICE,
  • 00:08:10.220 --> 00:08:12.170
  • WHO MAKES THE WORST TEA.
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:13.200
  • I CAN TELL YOU
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:14.060
  • ALL OF THAT STUFF.
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:16.230
  • BUT THERE'S ONLY ONE THING
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:17.130
  • THAT KEEPS ME GOING...
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:21.120
  • AND THAT IS THE FIRM BELIEF
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:23.080
  • THAT MORE THAN EVER
  • 00:08:23.080 --> 00:08:25.030
  • THIS GOSPEL IS THE ONLY
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:26.150
  • SHINING LIGHT
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:28.020
  • AGAINST THE DARK BACKGROUND OF
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:30.050
  • A CONFUSED AND MESSED UP WORLD.
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:35.090
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:40.060
  • ROBERT JAFFRAY
  • 00:08:40.060 --> 00:08:41.220
  • WAS A GREAT PREACHER.
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:43.200
  • THE LAST THREE YEARS
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:44.050
  • OF HIS LIFE, HE SPENT IN
  • 00:08:44.050 --> 00:08:45.120
  • A JAPANESE INTERNMENT CAMP.
  • 00:08:45.120 --> 00:08:47.150
  • HE WAS HEIR TO CANADA'S LARGEST

  • AND THE STANDARD OIL COMPANY
  • 00:08:55.130 --> 00:08:57.040
  • WANTED TO HIRE HIM.
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:08:59.180
  • HE DECIDED INSTEAD
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:00.210
  • TO BECOME A MISSIONARY.
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:01.240
  • I HAVE SOME OF HIS BOOKS

  • ROBERT JAFFRAY.
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:05.210
  • AND FINALLY,
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:06.100
  • THE STANDARD OIL COMPANY
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:07.160
  • OFFERED HIM A HUGE SALARY
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:10.190
  • TO COME AND WORK FOR THEM
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:11.140
  • INSTEAD OF BEING A MISSIONARY.
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:12.120
  • HE TURNED IT DOWN.
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:13.180
  • THEY WROTE BACK AND DOUBLED IT.
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:15.060
  • HE TURNED IT DOWN.
  • 00:09:15.060 --> 00:09:16.240
  • FINALLY, THEY SENT
  • 00:09:16.240 --> 00:09:17.250
  • HIM A TELEGRAM:
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:20.040
  • "JAFFRAY, AT ANY PRICE."
  • 00:09:20.250 --> 00:09:23.250
  • HE WROTE BACK WITH
  • 00:09:23.250 --> 00:09:24.170
  • ONE LINE AS WELL,
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:26.060
  • "YOUR SALARY IS BIG,
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:28.040
  • YOUR JOB IS TOO SMALL."
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:31.220
  • YOUR SALARY IS BIG,
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:33.190
  • YOUR JOB IS TOO SMALL.
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:35.270
  • YOU SEE, YOUR JOB AND MY JOB
  • 00:09:37.040 --> 00:09:40.040
  • IS TO BE THAT BRIGHT LIGHT
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:42.050
  • WHEREVER WE ARE;
  • 00:09:42.050 --> 00:09:43.160
  • TO DO IT AND TO SHINE
  • 00:09:43.160 --> 00:09:45.170
  • IN THIS VERY DARK WORLD.
  • 00:09:45.170 --> 00:09:47.060
  • IT'S THE JAFFRAY'S OF THE WORLD
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:48.270
  • THAT OPENED UP CHINA SO THAT
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:50.200
  • TODAY WE SEE THE RESULTS OF HOW
  • 00:09:50.200 --> 00:09:53.180
  • PROFOUNDLY THEY HAD AN IMPACT.
  • 00:09:53.180 --> 00:09:56.030
  • THE INTERNALIZATION OF TRUTH.
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:09:58.090
  • THERE WAS NO INTERNALIZATION.
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:09:59.180
  • NUMBER TWO, THERE WAS NO CONCERN
  • 00:09:59.180 --> 00:10:01.280
  • FOR THE POOR
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:03.070
  • AND THE MARGINALIZED IN SOCIETY.
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:06.190
  • WHEN I STARTED
  • 00:10:06.190 --> 00:10:07.150
  • WELLSPRING INTERNATIONAL,
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:09.260
  • MY HEART I --
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:10.220
  • SHALINI WAS VERY CORRECT --
  • 00:10:10.220 --> 00:10:12.170
  • I DID WHAT I DID FOR WELLSPRING
  • 00:10:13.260 --> 00:10:16.260
  • BECAUSE I WAS RAISED BY A MOTHER
  • 00:10:16.260 --> 00:10:19.030
  • WHO NEVER EVER WALKED
  • 00:10:19.030 --> 00:10:21.040
  • BY SOMEBODY WITH NEED WITHOUT
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:22.240
  • DOING SOMETHING FOR THEM.
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:24.240
  • EVEN WHEN I MOVED TO CANADA
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:26.070
  • WHEN I WOULD PACK MY SUITCASE
  • 00:10:26.070 --> 00:10:27.240
  • SHE WOULD ASK ME
  • 00:10:27.240 --> 00:10:28.140
  • TO TAKE TWO SUITCASES,
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.260
  • ONE FOR THE NEEDY AND THE POOR
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:32.130
  • AND I COULD COME BACK
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:33.170
  • WITH THAT SUITCASE EMPTY
  • 00:10:33.170 --> 00:10:34.140
  • IF I SO CHOSE.
  • 00:10:34.140 --> 00:10:36.000
  • CLOTHES, MONEY, GOODS,
  • 00:10:36.000 --> 00:10:38.090
  • WATCHES THINGS LIKE THAT,
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:40.000
  • MY MOTHER WASN'T
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:40.130
  • A VERY WEALTHY WOMAN
  • 00:10:40.130 --> 00:10:41.250
  • BUT SHE HAD A VERY TENDER HEART
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:43.160
  • AND GOD IS CALLED US
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:45.190
  • TO BE A COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:45.190 --> 00:10:47.230
  • TO BE THERE FOR THE NEEDY.
  • 00:10:47.230 --> 00:10:49.200
  • I ALWAYS LOVE IT
  • 00:10:49.200 --> 00:10:50.080
  • WHEN I SEE NAOMI
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:51.200
  • PRESENTING THAT NEED,
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:53.020
  • MANY OF YOU HERE WERE INVOLVED
  • 00:10:53.020 --> 00:10:54.210
  • IN BUYING THAT LAND
  • 00:10:54.210 --> 00:10:55.200
  • FOR THE BUILDING OF A HOSPITAL
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:58.150
  • THAT IS THE NEXT GREAT STAGE
  • 00:10:58.150 --> 00:11:00.110
  • TO TREAT BURN VICTIMS,
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:02.100
  • BUT MANY OF YOU MAY KNOW
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:04.150
  • THAT THE GREATEST BLESSING
  • 00:11:04.150 --> 00:11:05.210
  • I EVER RECEIVED,
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:06.220
  • THE GREATEST BENEDICTION
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:07.270
  • I EVER RECEIVED
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:08.200
  • WAS FROM A BEGGAR IN DELHI.
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:11.060
  • AS I SAW HIM WALKING
  • 00:11:11.060 --> 00:11:12.050
  • WITH ONE LEG OUT THERE,
  • 00:11:12.050 --> 00:11:13.200
  • PUSHING HIMSELF, ONE LEG GONE,
  • 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:15.040
  • THE OTHER BANDAGED UP
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:16.230
  • WITH PUS MARKS AND BLOOD MARKS
  • 00:11:16.230 --> 00:11:18.090
  • ON THE OTHER AND PUSHING HIMSELF
  • 00:11:18.090 --> 00:11:20.050
  • LIKE THIS, I FELT SO MUCH PITY
  • 00:11:20.050 --> 00:11:22.100
  • AND COMPASSION FOR HIM
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.140
  • I WANTED TO GIVE HIM
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:24.070
  • SOMETHING IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:25.240
  • BUT I DIDN'T DO IT
  • 00:11:25.240 --> 00:11:26.240
  • BECAUSE I KNEW I'D BE INVADED
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.210
  • BY SEVERAL OTHERS,
  • 00:11:28.210 --> 00:11:30.110
  • SO FROM A DISTANCE
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:31.040
  • I WALKED BEHIND HIM UNTIL
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:32.200
  • HE PUSHED HIMSELF ACROSS
  • 00:11:32.200 --> 00:11:33.190
  • THE ROAD SOMEWHERE
  • 00:11:33.190 --> 00:11:34.290
  • AND THERE WERE LITTLE
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:35.160
  • LESS PEOPLE ON THE OTHER SIDE,
  • 00:11:35.160 --> 00:11:37.010
  • I WENT OVER TO HIM
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:38.170
  • AND I SAID --
  • 00:11:38.170 --> 00:11:39.040
  • [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:40.280
  • "BROTHER SIR, PAUSE A MINUTE",
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:43.230
  • AND I KNELT BESIDE HIM
  • 00:11:43.230 --> 00:11:45.210
  • AND I PUT A LITTLE MONEY
  • 00:11:45.210 --> 00:11:47.120
  • INTO HIS HAND
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:48.030
  • IT WAS A $100 RUPEE NOTE
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:50.020
  • AND I SAID --
  • 00:11:50.020 --> 00:11:50.180
  • [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:52.150
  • "IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST,"
  • 00:11:52.150 --> 00:11:54.120
  • [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.220
  • "I'M GIVING THIS
  • 00:11:55.220 --> 00:11:56.070
  • TO YOU RESPECTED SIR".
  • 00:11:56.070 --> 00:11:58.250
  • HE OPENED HIS HAND
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:00.060
  • LIKE THAT TO SEE
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:01.050
  • IT WAS A $100 RUPEE NOTE
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:02.170
  • I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:02.290
  • IF HE'D EVER RECEIVED
  • 00:12:02.290 --> 00:12:03.150
  • THAT IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:04.240
  • IT WAS BIG FOR HIM,
  • 00:12:04.240 --> 00:12:05.270
  • FOR ME IT WAS A $1.50
  • 00:12:06.100 --> 00:12:09.100
  • AND HE LOOKED AT IT LIKE THAT
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.280
  • AND LOOKED AT ME
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:12.100
  • AND HIS EYES FLOODED WITH TEARS
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:13.240
  • AND HE SAID --
  • 00:12:13.240 --> 00:12:14.130
  • [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:15.250
  • "RESPECTED SIR",
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:17.120
  • [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]
  • 00:12:17.120 --> 00:12:19.250
  • "MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU."
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:23.120
  • IT'S THE BEST BENEDICTION
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:24.060
  • I EVER RECEIVED FROM A MAN
  • 00:12:24.060 --> 00:12:26.190
  • WHO COULDN'T HAVE GIVEN ME
  • 00:12:26.190 --> 00:12:27.170
  • ANYTHING EXCEPT HIS GOOD WISHES
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:31.010
  • AND HIS PRAYER
  • 00:12:31.010 --> 00:12:32.070
  • AND WHAT HAPPENED IN THOSE DAYS
  • 00:12:32.070 --> 00:12:34.060
  • AS THE POOR WERE IGNORED
  • 00:12:34.060 --> 00:12:36.020
  • AND LOST THEIR WAY
  • 00:12:36.020 --> 00:12:37.050
  • FOR THE NEEDY GOD SAID MY GLORY
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:40.250
  • IS GOING TO LEAVE YOUR PRESENCE.
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:43.240
  • IT WAS NOT INTERNALIZED.
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.070
  • SECONDLY, HE TOLD THEM --
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:47.070
  • THE MOST POWERFUL WERE
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:47.260
  • GONNA BE HUMILIATED.
  • 00:12:47.260 --> 00:12:50.130
  • CHAPTER 27.
  • 00:12:50.130 --> 00:12:51.120
  • I WON'T GO INTO THE DETAILS.
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:53.000
  • THEY HAD BECOME
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:53.150
  • SO CONFIDENT IN THEMSELVES,
  • 00:12:53.150 --> 00:12:56.060
  • SO CONFIDENT IN THEMSELVES;
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:12:58.080
  • THE SELF-AGGRANDIZEMENT,
  • 00:12:58.080 --> 00:13:00.170
  • THAT THEY COULD DO IT
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:01.080
  • AND WING IT ON THEIR OWN WAY.
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:04.140
  • HOW TEMPTING THAT IS
  • 00:13:04.140 --> 00:13:06.000
  • FOR YOU AND ME
  • 00:13:06.000 --> 00:13:07.220
  • WHEN WE MEET SUCCESS
  • 00:13:07.220 --> 00:13:09.230
  • TO THINK WE HAVE DONE IT.
  • 00:13:09.230 --> 00:13:12.100
  • G.K., NOT G.K. CHESTERTON --
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:13.280
  • WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID
  • 00:13:13.280 --> 00:13:15.030
  • TO A CORPORAL ONCE,
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:16.170
  • WHO LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:17.210
  • "I WANT YOU TO KNOW, SIR,
  • 00:13:17.210 --> 00:13:18.250
  • I AM A SELF-MADE MAN,"
  • 00:13:18.250 --> 00:13:20.210
  • CHURCHILL SAID,
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:21.110
  • "YOU HAVE JUST RELIEVED GOD OF
  • 00:13:21.110 --> 00:13:22.220
  • WE'RE NOT SELF-MADE.
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:28.150
  • THE LINES FALL
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:29.180
  • IN THE RIGHT PLACES.
  • 00:13:29.180 --> 00:13:30.200
  • THE RIGHT PEOPLE
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:31.110
  • COME INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:13:31.110 --> 00:13:32.150
  • AND THAT'S WHY MY BOOK
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:33.120
  • "WALKING FROM EAST TO WEST"
  • 00:13:33.120 --> 00:13:34.260
  • HAS VERY LITTLE TO DO, REALLY,
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:36.020
  • ABOUT ME, BUT THE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:36.020 --> 00:13:37.110
  • THAT CAME INTO MY LIFE
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:38.190
  • THAT OPENED DOORS AND MADE
  • 00:13:38.190 --> 00:13:40.010
  • IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO STUDY,
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:42.160
  • TO WORK, TO PREPARE.
  • 00:13:42.160 --> 00:13:44.010
  • AND MY PROFESSORS;
  • 00:13:44.010 --> 00:13:44.270
  • STILL THIS DAY, I REVERE
  • 00:13:44.270 --> 00:13:46.060
  • MY PROFESSORS SO GREATLY:
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:48.210
  • NORMAN GEISLER,
  • 00:13:48.210 --> 00:13:49.140
  • JOHN WARWICK MONTGOMERY,
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:50.190
  • JOHN GERSTNER,
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:51.140
  • JOHN R.W. STOTT,
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:53.110
  • J.I. PACKER.
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:54.280
  • I WAS STUDYING
  • 00:13:54.280 --> 00:13:55.110
  • UNDER THE BEST OF THEM.
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:13:56.110
  • KENNETH CONCER
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:57.210
  • I OWE SO MUCH TO THEM.
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:14:00.200
  • I'M AFRAID THIS BEING RECORDED,
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:03.080
  • THAT SOME OF THEM
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:03.240
  • START TO EXPLOUT THAT NOW.
  • 00:14:03.240 --> 00:14:06.050
  • JUST THREE DAYS AGO,
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:06.270
  • I GOT A LETTER
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:07.270
  • FROM NORMAN GEISLER,
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:08.260
  • "WE HAVE TO HAVE YOU.
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:09.200
  • I KNOW YOU'D WANT
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:10.100
  • TO DO THIS FOR ME."
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:11.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:11.280 --> 00:14:14.170
  • I SAID, "I WILL DO IT
  • 00:14:14.170 --> 00:14:15.110
  • FOR YOU, SIR.
  • 00:14:15.110 --> 00:14:16.090
  • IF I AM FREE, I WILL BE THERE
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:18.010
  • BECAUSE I STUDIED AT YOUR FEET.
  • 00:14:18.010 --> 00:14:19.200
  • I LEARNED AT YOUR FEET.
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:20.260
  • WITHOUT YOU, NO DOORS WOULD HAVE
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:22.140
  • BEEN OPENED IN PHILOSOPHICAL
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.260
  • THINKING AND THIS KIND OF
  • 00:14:23.260 --> 00:14:24.230
  • ARGUMENTATION FOR ME."
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:26.250
  • BUT IF YOU THINK
  • 00:14:26.250 --> 00:14:27.110
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:28.250
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:29.150
  • A SICKNESS OR A DISEASE
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:30.250
  • OR SOMETHING FELLS YOU
  • 00:14:30.250 --> 00:14:32.110
  • AND YOU FIND OUT YOU ARE NOT
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:33.170
  • WHAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE.
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:36.130
  • THE BODY BEGINS TO WEAKEN
  • 00:14:36.130 --> 00:14:38.030
  • AND THE BODY BEGINS TO FAIL.
  • 00:14:38.030 --> 00:14:39.230
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:14:39.230 --> 00:14:40.060
  • I WANNA TELL YOU.
  • 00:14:40.060 --> 00:14:41.210
  • EVEN IN WEAKNESS,
  • 00:14:41.210 --> 00:14:44.010
  • EVEN IN THAT BROKENNESS,
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:48.020
  • GOD'S GLORY IS THE ONLY HOPE
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:50.280
  • YOU CAN HAVE TO LIFT YOU
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:53.070
  • ABOVE THAT BROKENNESS.
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:54.290
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD SHOWS TO THEM.
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:56.270
  • YOU KNOW, I USED TO LOVE
  • 00:14:56.270 --> 00:14:58.250
  • TRACK AND FIELD.
  • 00:14:58.250 --> 00:14:59.200
  • I USED TO BE A RUNNER.
  • 00:14:59.200 --> 00:15:00.230
  • I WOULD NEVER HAVE MADE IT
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:01.290
  • TO THE BIG LEAGUES,
  • 00:15:01.290 --> 00:15:02.280
  • BUT I USED TO LOVE --
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:04.040
  • I MUST HAVE HAD EARLY HIP ISSUES
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:05.100
  • AND BACK ISSUES EARLY IN LIFE.
  • 00:15:05.100 --> 00:15:07.090
  • I WANTED TO BE A SPRINTER.
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:08.090
  • I COULDN'T MAKE IT, SO I BECAME
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:09.170
  • A LONG-DISTANCE RUNNER.
  • 00:15:09.170 --> 00:15:11.010
  • I LOVE TO RUN
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:11.190
  • THE LONG DISTANCES.
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:13.070
  • AND EVERY TIME
  • 00:15:13.070 --> 00:15:14.050
  • THE OLYMPICS COME,
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.010
  • I WOULD WATCH
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:16.020
  • THE TRACK AND FIELD.
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:17.000
  • IT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT FOR ME
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:18.040
  • EVERY TIME, ESPECIALLY
  • 00:15:18.040 --> 00:15:19.120
  • THE 100 METERS,
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:20.170
  • ALL THE MIDDLE DISTANCES,
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:21.230
  • 800 METERS ALL THE WAY
  • 00:15:21.230 --> 00:15:24.080
  • TO THE MILE OR THE MARATHON.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:25.150
  • I'D WATCH IT.
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:26.200
  • RUNNING IS
  • 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:27.140
  • AN EXHILARATING THING.
  • 00:15:27.140 --> 00:15:28.290
  • AND WHEN YOU WATCH
  • 00:15:28.290 --> 00:15:29.230
  • THE FINEST RUNNERS,
  • 00:15:29.230 --> 00:15:30.260
  • IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:31.190
  • TO BEHOLD.
  • 00:15:31.190 --> 00:15:32.280
  • IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:34.020
  • OF BARCELONA 1992,
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:36.140
  • THERE WAS AN ENGLISH RUNNER
  • 00:15:36.140 --> 00:15:37.100
  • BY THE NAME OF
  • 00:15:37.100 --> 00:15:37.270
  • DEREK ANTHONY REDMOND.
  • 00:15:37.270 --> 00:15:39.090
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY OF YOU
  • 00:15:39.090 --> 00:15:40.060
  • KNOW THAT NAME.
  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:42.100
  • HE WAS A VERY BRILLIANT RUNNER.
  • 00:15:42.100 --> 00:15:45.000
  • THEY WERE EXPECTING HIM TO WIN
  • 00:15:45.000 --> 00:15:46.170
  • THE 400 METERS.
  • 00:15:46.170 --> 00:15:48.070
  • DEREK REDMOND WAS IT.
  • 00:15:48.070 --> 00:15:50.010
  • THEY CAME TO THE FINALS
  • 00:15:50.010 --> 00:15:51.260
  • AND THE GUN WAS SOUNDED.
  • 00:15:51.260 --> 00:15:53.160
  • HE'S RUNNING TOWARDS
  • 00:15:53.160 --> 00:15:54.240
  • THE 400-METER MARK.
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:56.030
  • AT THE 125-METER MARK,
  • 00:15:56.030 --> 00:15:58.220
  • HE STOPS AND CLASPS HIS LEG.
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:01.280
  • HE'S PULLED A HAMSTRING.
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:03.250
  • HE FALLS.
  • 00:16:03.250 --> 00:16:06.070
  • THEY COME AND BRING HIM
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:07.070
  • A STRETCHER.
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:09.020
  • HE SAYS, "NO," AND HE GETS UP
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:11.030
  • AND HE'S HOBBLING OVER.
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:13.180
  • AND OUT OF THE CROWD,
  • 00:16:13.180 --> 00:16:14.180
  • THERE'S A MAN RUNNING DOWN
  • 00:16:14.180 --> 00:16:16.020
  • AND THE SECURITY'S TRYING
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:17.030
  • TO GET TO HIM
  • 00:16:17.030 --> 00:16:18.290
  • UNTIL HE JUST SAID THESE WORDS,
  • 00:16:18.290 --> 00:16:20.260
  • "I'M HIS FATHER."
  • 00:16:23.010 --> 00:16:26.010
  • AND DEREK'S DAD, BIG GUY,
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:28.150
  • HE IS PUSHING EVERYBODY ASIDE.
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:30.010
  • HE COMES ONTO THE TRACK,
  • 00:16:30.010 --> 00:16:31.140
  • AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS.
  • 00:16:31.140 --> 00:16:32.130
  • HE'S PUSHING THEM ASIDE, SAID,
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:34.010
  • "THAT'S MY SON."
  • 00:16:34.060 --> 00:16:37.060
  • AND THE FATHER COMES BESIDE
  • 00:16:37.060 --> 00:16:38.150
  • DEREK AND HE'S HOBBLING
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:39.280
  • LIKE THIS, AND HE COMES AND PUTS
  • 00:16:39.280 --> 00:16:41.280
  • HIS ARM AROUND HIM AND HE SAID,
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:43.110
  • "I'M GONNA DO THIS MYSELF, DAD."
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:46.110
  • HE SAID, "THAT'S FINE, SON;
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:47.260
  • LET ME HELP YOU
  • 00:16:47.260 --> 00:16:48.140
  • AT LEAST HALF THE WAY."
  • 00:16:48.140 --> 00:16:50.150
  • AND SO HE PUTS HIS ARM
  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:51.150
  • AROUND DEREK AND DEREK'S GOT
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:52.260
  • HIS HAND ON HIS SHOULDER.
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:53.280
  • SEE IT ON THE YOUTUBE.
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:54.220
  • IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:56.250
  • IN THE BACKGROUND IS THE MUSIC
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:57.200
  • PLAYING, "HE LIFTS ME UP,"
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:02.130
  • "HE RAISES ME UP."
  • 00:17:02.130 --> 00:17:05.120
  • AND THERE HE IS, ON THE SHOULDER
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:07.130
  • OF HIS DAD, HOBBLING.
  • 00:17:07.130 --> 00:17:09.180
  • AND THE DAD DID
  • 00:17:09.180 --> 00:17:10.060
  • SOMETHING AMAZING
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:12.010
  • WITH ABOUT FIVE METERS TO GO.
  • 00:17:12.010 --> 00:17:13.260
  • HE PULLED AWAY AND LET DEREK
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:15.040
  • BURST THE TAPE ON HIS OWN.
  • 00:17:15.200 --> 00:17:18.200
  • I DON'T KNOW WHO WON THAT EVENT,
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:21.120
  • BUT I KNOW WHO WAS
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:22.020
  • THE REAL WINNER
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.240
  • IN WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY.
  • 00:17:23.240 --> 00:17:26.030
  • AND WHEN YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.110
  • HE RAISES YOU UP WHEN
  • 00:17:27.110 --> 00:17:28.280
  • YOUR HEAD IS ON HIS SHOULDER,
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:30.230
  • HE LIFTS YOU UP WHEN THAT
  • 00:17:30.230 --> 00:17:31.280
  • HAMSTRING HAS FELLED YOU,
  • 00:17:31.280 --> 00:17:34.110
  • HE COMES TO CARRY YOU
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.190
  • OUT OF A CROWD OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:35.190 --> 00:17:37.280
  • "THAT'S MY SON; I'M HIS FATHER"
  • 00:17:37.280 --> 00:17:40.200
  • -- I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:42.130
  • THE GLORY OF GOD IS AT
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:44.180
  • IT'S GREATEST WHEN YOU AND I
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:47.010
  • ARE AT OUR WEAKEST
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:48.060
  • AND HE COMES AND SAYS,
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:49.170
  • "PUT THAT HEAD ON MY SHOULDER;
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:51.110
  • THE LONGER I LIVE,
  • 00:17:57.030 --> 00:17:58.200
  • THE MORE I REALIZE
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:17:59.270
  • EVERYBODY LIVES WITH AT LEAST
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:01.040
  • A PARTIALLY BROKEN HEART,
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:03.260
  • AT LEAST A PARTIALLY
  • 00:18:03.260 --> 00:18:04.170
  • BROKEN HEART IF NOT
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:06.000
  • A TOTALLY BROKEN HEART.
  • 00:18:06.000 --> 00:18:08.070
  • AND IT HAS BEEN SAID
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:10.120
  • WHEN YOU PREACH TO
  • 00:18:10.120 --> 00:18:11.150
  • A HURTING AUDIENCE
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:12.070
  • YOU WILL NEVER LACK FOR ONE.
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:14.220
  • YOU UNPACK PEOPLE'S HURT
  • 00:18:14.220 --> 00:18:16.240
  • AND PAIN AND YOU WILL HEAR
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:18.160
  • A LOT OF HURT AND PAIN.
  • 00:18:18.160 --> 00:18:20.140
  • THE GLORY OF GOD IS
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:22.000
  • AT ITS GREATEST WHEN
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:23.140
  • YOU PUT YOUR HEAD
  • 00:18:23.140 --> 00:18:24.070
  • ON HIS SHOULDER AND SAY,
  • 00:18:24.070 --> 00:18:25.250
  • "I CAN'T FINISH THIS RACE --
  • 00:18:25.250 --> 00:18:27.100
  • HELP ME..."
  • 00:18:27.100 --> 00:18:28.290
  • AND HE WILL DO IT IN SUCH A WAY,
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:31.050
  • WHEN YOU COME TO
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:31.260
  • THE FINISH LINE, HE'LL SAY,
  • 00:18:31.260 --> 00:18:33.180
  • "[INDISCERNIBLE],"
  • 00:18:33.180 --> 00:18:34.210
  • JUST LIKE HE BROUGHT PETER
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:35.190
  • HALF THE WAY AND SAID,
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:37.060
  • "NOW YOU'LL FIND RHODA'S HOUSE;
  • 00:18:37.060 --> 00:18:39.130
  • YOU'LL GET THERE
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:39.290
  • THE REST OF THE WAY,"
  • 00:18:39.290 --> 00:18:40.280
  • AS HE SENT THE ANGEL.
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:42.100
  • THE GLORY OF GOD IS AT IT'S
  • 00:18:42.100 --> 00:18:44.040
  • GREATEST WHEN WE ARE AT OUR
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:46.020
  • WEAKEST AND WE REALIZE
  • 00:18:46.020 --> 00:18:48.120
  • "I NEED HIS SHOULDER
  • 00:18:48.120 --> 00:18:49.240
  • ON WHICH TO PUT MY HEAD."
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:51.210
  • WHEN YOU AND I LEARN THAT,
  • 00:18:51.210 --> 00:18:53.080
  • THE WEIGHTEDNESS OF GOD
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:54.230
  • AND THE LUMINOSITY OF GOD
  • 00:18:54.230 --> 00:18:56.140
  • SHINES IN THE PATH AHEAD
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:58.080
  • AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN
  • 00:18:58.080 --> 00:18:59.020
  • SECURE HANDS AND SHOULDERS
  • 00:18:59.220 --> 00:19:02.240
  • THAT ARE HOLDING YOU UP.
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:04.210
  • DEREK'S VICTORY WAS A VICTORY
  • 00:19:04.290 --> 00:19:07.290
  • OF A FATHER AND SON,
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:09.200
  • AND OF A CROWD OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:09.200 --> 00:19:11.270
  • THE GLORY OF THAT.
  • 00:19:11.270 --> 00:19:13.140
  • SO YOU SEE HOW
  • 00:19:13.140 --> 00:19:15.140
  • IT WAS NOT INTERNALIZED,
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:17.170
  • HOW THE MOST POWERFUL REALIZED
  • 00:19:17.170 --> 00:19:19.100
  • THEY NEEDED A SHOULDER.
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:21.000
  • THIRDLY, BUT THE SILENCE OF GOD
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:22.270
  • INTENSIFIED WHEN HE WAS GONE.
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.280
  • MARTIN LUTHER CRIED A PRAYER
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:26.030
  • ONCE; I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN.
  • 00:19:26.030 --> 00:19:28.170
  • "BLESS US, LORD,
  • 00:19:28.170 --> 00:19:29.270
  • YEA EVEN CURSE US;
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:31.040
  • BUT PLEASE BE NOT SILENT."
  • 00:19:31.040 --> 00:19:33.160
  • "BLESS US, LORD,
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:34.140
  • YEA EVEN CURSE US;
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:35.240
  • BUT PLEASE BE NOT SILENT."
  • 00:19:35.240 --> 00:19:38.030
  • HOW DO YOU HEAR
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:38.210
  • THE VOICE OF GOD?
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:41.190
  • THERE ARE ONLY TWO
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:42.070
  • OR THREE WAYS THAT I KNOW.
  • 00:19:42.070 --> 00:19:43.290
  • NUMBER ONE, BY READING HIS WORD.
  • 00:19:44.130 --> 00:19:47.130
  • NUMBER TWO, BY LIVING OUT
  • 00:19:47.130 --> 00:19:49.060
  • THAT WORD, BECAUSE THAT DRAWS
  • 00:19:49.060 --> 00:19:51.140
  • YOU CLOSER TO HIM
  • 00:19:51.140 --> 00:19:53.030
  • AND HE KNOWS YOU MEAN BUSINESS.
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:54.290
  • NUMBER THREE, BY SPENDING TIME
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:56.260
  • WITH PEOPLE WHO LISTEN
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:58.140
  • TO GOD'S VOICE, AND YOU
  • 00:19:58.140 --> 00:20:00.040
  • DRAW THAT STRENGTH FROM THEM.
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:02.190
  • MAKE FRIENDS OF THOSE
  • 00:20:02.190 --> 00:20:04.150
  • WHO WILL INSPIRE
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:05.180
  • AND BLESS YOU AND EQUIP YOU.
  • 00:20:05.180 --> 00:20:07.200
  • SOONER OR LATER IN LIFE
  • 00:20:07.200 --> 00:20:09.070
  • YOU'RE GONNA NEED
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:09.280
  • THAT VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:20:09.280 --> 00:20:11.060
  • THROUGH SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:20:11.060 --> 00:20:12.240
  • TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:14.150
  • WHEN I WAS READY
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:15.290
  • TO GRADUATE IN TORONTO,
  • 00:20:15.290 --> 00:20:18.280
  • I HAD DEVELOPED SOME
  • 00:20:18.280 --> 00:20:20.040
  • VOCAL NODULES BECAUSE
  • 00:20:20.040 --> 00:20:21.150
  • I PREACHED IN VIETNAM,
  • 00:20:21.160 --> 00:20:24.160
  • I PREACHED THREE OR FOUR TIMES
  • 00:20:24.160 --> 00:20:25.260
  • A DAY FOR FOUR MONTHS
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:26.230
  • AND MY VOICE WAS SHOT.
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:27.260
  • IT WAS GONE.
  • 00:20:27.260 --> 00:20:29.140
  • AND I CAME BACK AND MY THROAT
  • 00:20:29.140 --> 00:20:31.180
  • WAS HURTING EVERY TIME I SPOKE,
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:33.000
  • AND SO I WENT TO SEE
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:33.240
  • A MEDICAL DOCTOR.
  • 00:20:33.240 --> 00:20:35.210
  • AND HE LOOKED AT MY THROAT,
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:36.220
  • EXAMINED ME, AND HE SAID,
  • 00:20:36.220 --> 00:20:38.060
  • "WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO
  • 00:20:38.060 --> 00:20:38.270
  • IN YOUR LIFE?"
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:40.080
  • I SAID, "I'M PLANNING
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:40.250
  • TO BE A SPEAKER."
  • 00:20:40.250 --> 00:20:42.040
  • HE SAID, "NO, NOT GONNA HAPPEN."
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:46.070
  • HE SAID, "YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:46.270
  • THE VOCAL CORDS TO USE IT
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:48.140
  • PROFESSIONALLY.
  • 00:20:48.140 --> 00:20:50.100
  • YOU DON'T HAVE THE VOCAL CORDS
  • 00:20:50.100 --> 00:20:51.130
  • TO DO IT PROFESSIONALLY."
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:53.060
  • SO THE NEXT DAY,
  • 00:20:53.060 --> 00:20:53.260
  • I WENT TO SCHOOL
  • 00:20:53.260 --> 00:20:54.140
  • AND I WAS JUST WALKING AROUND.
  • 00:20:54.140 --> 00:20:55.150
  • I WAS REALLY DOWN.
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:57.120
  • I SAID, "IS THAT TRUE?"
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:59.210
  • I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA DO
  • 00:20:59.210 --> 00:21:01.270
  • JUST THAT, SPEAK FOR MY LORD.
  • 00:21:01.270 --> 00:21:03.280
  • AND THE CHANCELLOR
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:05.060
  • OF THE COLLEGE,
  • 00:21:05.060 --> 00:21:06.130
  • DR. STEWART BEEMER --
  • 00:21:06.130 --> 00:21:07.220
  • I ALREADY KNEW HIM WELL, TOO --
  • 00:21:07.220 --> 00:21:09.120
  • HE SAW ME WALKING AND SAID,
  • 00:21:09.120 --> 00:21:10.120
  • "ARE YOU OKAY?"
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:11.040
  • I SAID, "NO, SIR."
  • 00:21:11.040 --> 00:21:13.120
  • HE SAID, "COME ON UP
  • 00:21:13.120 --> 00:21:14.020
  • TO MY OFFICE," SO I WENT UP.
  • 00:21:14.020 --> 00:21:15.230
  • HE SAID, "WHAT'S BOTHERING YOU?"
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:18.060
  • SO I TOLD HIM.
  • 00:21:18.060 --> 00:21:18.260
  • HE SAID, "RAVI,
  • 00:21:18.260 --> 00:21:20.040
  • DON'T LISTEN TO HIM."
  • 00:21:20.050 --> 00:21:23.050
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:21:23.050 --> 00:21:23.170
  • "I'VE WATCHED YOU PREACH,
  • 00:21:23.170 --> 00:21:24.170
  • I'VE HEARD YOU PREACH...
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:25.170
  • GOD'S GOT HIS HAND ON YOU.
  • 00:21:25.170 --> 00:21:26.270
  • I'M GONNA GET YOU IN TOUCH
  • 00:21:26.270 --> 00:21:28.000
  • WITH THE BEST LARYNGOLOGIST
  • 00:21:28.000 --> 00:21:30.180
  • THAT I KNOW IN THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:21:30.180 --> 00:21:32.270
  • IF HE TELLS YOU THAT,
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:33.260
  • I'LL BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:21:33.260 --> 00:21:34.170
  • OTHERWISE, I WON'T."
  • 00:21:34.170 --> 00:21:36.040
  • SO HE SENT ME TO SEE
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:37.060
  • A DR. SILVERTHORNE,
  • 00:21:37.060 --> 00:21:38.150
  • AND DR. SILVERTHORNE
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:39.130
  • LOOKED AT ME AND HE SAID,
  • 00:21:39.130 --> 00:21:41.150
  • "NO PROBLEM;
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:42.100
  • WE'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:43.260
  • IT MAY TAKE YOU OFF THE ROAD
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:44.250
  • FOR ABOUT FIVE WEEKS,
  • 00:21:44.250 --> 00:21:46.120
  • BUT YOU'LL BE FINE."
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:47.240
  • HERE I AM NOW, 45 YEARS LATER,
  • 00:21:48.230 --> 00:21:51.230
  • IF IT WEREN'T FOR
  • 00:21:56.050 --> 00:21:57.030
  • DR. STEWART BEEMER
  • 00:21:57.030 --> 00:21:58.130
  • AND THOSE DOCTORS,
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:21:59.160
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD BE HERE.
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:01.230
  • ALWAYS LISTEN TO GODLY WISDOM.
  • 00:22:01.290 --> 00:22:04.290
  • YOU AND I MAY THINK
  • 00:22:04.290 --> 00:22:06.070
  • WE HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS.
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:08.050
  • MAKE FRIENDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:09.180
  • YOU REVERE AND RESPECT.
  • 00:22:09.180 --> 00:22:11.230
  • THEIR VOICE
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:12.240
  • NEEDS TO BE HEARD.
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:13.170
  • I LOVE MY BOARD.
  • 00:22:13.170 --> 00:22:15.220
  • I LOVE MY BOARD.
  • 00:22:15.220 --> 00:22:16.100
  • WE JUST COME THROUGH
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:16.270
  • A TOUGH TIME WITH
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:17.220
  • PERSONAL ATTACKS ON ME,
  • 00:22:17.220 --> 00:22:20.080
  • AND IT'S MY BOARD MEMBERS
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:21.130
  • AND COLLEAGUES THAT HAD
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:23.020
  • THAT VOICE OF ENCOURAGEMENT;
  • 00:22:23.020 --> 00:22:24.090
  • MY COLLEAGUES AT WORK:
  • 00:22:24.090 --> 00:22:26.070
  • VINCE, MICHAEL, OTHERS.
  • 00:22:26.070 --> 00:22:28.040
  • I CAN NAME ALL OF YOU.

  • "GOD'S GONNA CARRY YOU THROUGH."
  • 00:22:31.210 --> 00:22:33.030
  • AND IT'S WHAT
  • 00:22:33.030 --> 00:22:33.160
  • CARRIED ME THROUGH, HIS WORD
  • 00:22:33.160 --> 00:22:35.190
  • AND HIS PRESENCE TO THAT.
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:37.170
  • THROUGH ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:22:37.170 --> 00:22:38.240
  • HE WILL NOT ABANDON YOU
  • 00:22:38.240 --> 00:22:41.110
  • IF YOU WILL LISTEN TO HIS VOICE
  • 00:22:41.110 --> 00:22:43.140
  • THROUGH HIS WORD, LIVE OUT
  • 00:22:43.140 --> 00:22:45.080
  • THAT WORD, AND MAKE FRIENDS
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:47.020
  • OF THOSE WHOM YOU

  • OTHERWISE, THE SILENCE
  • 00:22:49.220 --> 00:22:51.010
  • OF GOD WILL INTENSIFY.
  • 00:22:51.010 --> 00:22:53.020
  • AND LASTLY, HE SET THEIR
  • 00:22:53.060 --> 00:22:56.060
  • THEOLOGY STRAIGHT.
  • 00:22:56.060 --> 00:22:58.150
  • THEY KEPT SAYING
  • 00:22:58.150 --> 00:22:59.050
  • "THE DAYS ARE PROLONGED
  • 00:22:59.050 --> 00:23:00.110
  • AND EVERY VISION FAILETH."
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:01.200
  • THEY WERE MOVING TO CYNICISM.
  • 00:23:01.200 --> 00:23:03.160
  • THEY SAID, "PERHAPS A SINGLE
  • 00:23:03.160 --> 00:23:04.130
  • RIGHTEOUS MAN CAN SAVE US...
  • 00:23:04.130 --> 00:23:06.180
  • NOAH OR DANIEL OR JOB."
  • 00:23:06.180 --> 00:23:08.260
  • THEY WERE MOVING TO ESCAPISM;
  • 00:23:08.260 --> 00:23:10.230
  • CYNICISM, ESCAPISM,
  • 00:23:10.230 --> 00:23:12.220
  • AND LASTLY, "WELL,

  • THE FATHERS OF EDEN SAW GRAPES
  • 00:23:13.280 --> 00:23:15.280
  • AND THE CHILDREN'S TEETH
  • 00:23:15.280 --> 00:23:16.230
  • ARE SET ON EDGE."
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:18.000
  • WE'VE GOT FATALISM.
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:20.210
  • CYNICISM, ESCAPISM, FATALISM.
  • 00:23:21.130 --> 00:23:24.130
  • HE SAYS, "NO,

  • I AM GOING TO RETURN
  • 00:23:26.160 --> 00:23:27.260
  • INTO YOUR MIDST."
  • 00:23:27.260 --> 00:23:29.180
  • THE LAST WORDS
  • 00:23:29.180 --> 00:23:32.050
  • OF THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL,
  • 00:23:32.050 --> 00:23:34.040
  • "GOD IS THERE."

  • IT WAS THE LAST WORDS
  • 00:23:37.270 --> 00:23:38.270
  • OF THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL.
  • 00:23:38.270 --> 00:23:40.140
  • IF YOU JUST EVER GET BACK TO IT
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:42.160
  • AND TURN TO IT AT HOME,
  • 00:23:42.160 --> 00:23:44.190
  • IT ENDS WITH THE WORDS,
  • 00:23:44.190 --> 00:23:45.270
  • "... THE NEW CITY,"
  • 00:23:45.270 --> 00:23:46.220

  • IT INSPIRES ME.
  • 00:24:02.190 --> 00:24:04.030
  • ABSOLUTELY INSPIRES ME.

  • THEY WILL SAY,
  • 00:24:19.200 --> 00:24:20.260
  • "THE LORD IS THERE
  • 00:24:20.260 --> 00:24:22.030
