  • If you have your Bibles,
  • 00:00:22.000 --> 00:00:25.000
  • I do want to read
  • 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:26.070
  • in the New Testament, Luke 24.
  • 00:00:26.070 --> 00:00:28.290
  • "Now on the first day
  • 00:00:28.290 --> 00:00:29.280
  • of the week,
  • 00:00:29.280 --> 00:00:30.210
  • very early in the morning,
  • 00:00:30.210 --> 00:00:32.280
  • certain other women
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:34.140
  • came with them to the tomb,
  • 00:00:34.140 --> 00:00:36.120
  • bringing the spices
  • 00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:37.240
  • which they had prepared."
  • 00:00:37.240 --> 00:00:39.220
  • Turn to somebody and say,
  • 00:00:39.220 --> 00:00:40.220
  • "That's the Spice Girls".
  • 00:00:40.260 --> 00:00:43.260
  • "And they found the stone,
  • 00:00:43.260 --> 00:00:46.010
  • and it was rolled away
  • 00:00:46.010 --> 00:00:48.070
  • from the tomb.
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:51.060
  • And they went in," listen,
  • 00:00:51.060 --> 00:00:53.190
  • "and did not find the body
  • 00:00:53.190 --> 00:00:55.040
  • of the Lord Jesus.
  • 00:00:55.040 --> 00:00:57.070
  • And it happened,
  • 00:00:57.070 --> 00:00:58.070
  • as they were greatly perplexed
  • 00:00:58.070 --> 00:00:59.160
  • about this, that behold,
  • 00:00:59.160 --> 00:01:02.030
  • two men stood by them
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:03.250
  • in shining garments,"
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:05.120
  • which tells me it wasn't men,
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:06.210
  • it was angels.
  • 00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:09.220
  • "Then, as they were afraid,
  • 00:01:09.220 --> 00:01:12.000
  • and bowed their faces
  • 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:13.060
  • to the earth,
  • 00:01:13.060 --> 00:01:14.010
  • they said to them,"
  • 00:01:14.010 --> 00:01:15.190
  • what a great question,
  • 00:01:15.190 --> 00:01:16.190
  • "Why do you seek the living
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:18.120
  • among the dead?
  • 00:01:18.120 --> 00:01:20.270
  • He is not here, but He is risen!
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:26.040
  • Remember how He spoke to you
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:28.000
  • when He was still in Galilee,
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:29.220
  • saying, 'The Son of Man
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:30.240
  • must be delivered into
  • 00:01:30.240 --> 00:01:31.220
  • the hands of sinful men,
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:32.270
  • and be crucified,
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:35.120
  • and on the third day
  • 00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:37.110
  • rise again?'
  • 00:01:37.110 --> 00:01:39.000
  • And then they remembered
  • 00:01:39.140 --> 00:01:42.140
  • His words."
  • 00:01:42.140 --> 00:01:45.030
  • A great, great preacher,
  • 00:01:45.030 --> 00:01:46.140
  • who has gone on
  • 00:01:46.140 --> 00:01:47.070
  • to be with the Lord,
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:49.090
  • left a legacy of two
  • 00:01:49.090 --> 00:01:51.260
  • remarkable sermons.
  • 00:01:51.260 --> 00:01:54.200
  • One of the sermons that became
  • 00:01:54.200 --> 00:01:55.260
  • quite famous
  • 00:01:55.260 --> 00:01:56.280
  • from Dr. S.M. Lockridge -
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:02:01.210
  • He was an African American
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:02.280
  • pastor and preacher.
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:05.210
  • He was a leader
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:06.250
  • in the civil rights movement
  • 00:02:06.250 --> 00:02:08.060
  • and marched with Dr. King,
  • 00:02:08.060 --> 00:02:09.180
  • but even more notable than that
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:12.000
  • was his ability to preach
  • 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:13.160
  • Jesus from the pulpit.
  • 00:02:13.170 --> 00:02:16.170
  • He had a famous sermon that
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:17.230
  • was called "That's My King",
  • 00:02:17.280 --> 00:02:20.280
  • and it became world famous,
  • 00:02:20.280 --> 00:02:23.180
  • and whether you realize it
  • 00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:24.140
  • or not, you've heard it.
  • 00:02:24.140 --> 00:02:26.060
  • You've heard bits
  • 00:02:26.060 --> 00:02:27.060
  • and pieces of it.
  • 00:02:27.060 --> 00:02:28.060
  • There's not a preacher
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:28.290
  • in the nation that hasn't taken
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:30.160
  • some of it at some point,
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:32.180
  • and if they haven't,
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:34.030
  • they're just young
  • 00:02:34.030 --> 00:02:34.280
  • and haven't discovered it yet.
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:37.150
  • But, it's a remarkable,
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:38.240
  • remarkable sermon.
  • 00:02:39.040 --> 00:02:42.040
  • And then, his second sermon
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:43.090
  • that became famous,
  • 00:02:43.090 --> 00:02:44.120
  • that sometimes someone will say
  • 00:02:44.120 --> 00:02:46.260
  • something and it becomes
  • 00:02:46.260 --> 00:02:48.230
  • something that lives
  • 00:02:48.230 --> 00:02:49.230
  • for generations,
  • 00:02:49.230 --> 00:02:50.240
  • and that's what's happened
  • 00:02:50.240 --> 00:02:51.220
  • with his second sermon.
  • 00:02:51.220 --> 00:02:53.010
  • It was called, "It's Friday,
  • 00:02:53.180 --> 00:02:56.180
  • but Sunday's Coming".
  • 00:02:56.240 --> 00:02:59.240
  • He was right.
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:00.240
  • He was preaching Calvary
  • 00:03:00.240 --> 00:03:02.120
  • was Friday,
  • 00:03:02.120 --> 00:03:04.010
  • but Sunday's coming.
  • 00:03:04.010 --> 00:03:06.030
  • But, I want to preach good news
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.110
  • today that it's Sunday!
  • 00:03:07.250 --> 00:03:10.250
  • And Jesus is coming,
  • 00:03:10.250 --> 00:03:13.100
  • just like He said He would!
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:15.250
  • He's coming again!
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:18.200
  • The sky grew dark.
  • 00:03:18.200 --> 00:03:20.270
  • The earth began to tremble.
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:23.150
  • What a horrible, horrible thing
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:26.070
  • that was heard as Jesus
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:28.010
  • uttered from the cross,
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:29.210
  • "My Father, My Father,
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:31.260
  • why have You forsaken Me?"
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:34.100
  • The veil was torn in the temple.
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:36.220
  • Jesus, hanging on the cross.
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:39.060
  • Heaven is weeping.
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:40.220
  • Hell is rejoicing.
  • 00:03:40.220 --> 00:03:42.260
  • The perfect man, Jesus Christ,
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:45.190
  • is dying a hideous death
  • 00:03:45.190 --> 00:03:47.260
  • on the cross.
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:49.160
  • Satan thought he had destroyed
  • 00:03:49.160 --> 00:03:51.160
  • Jesus on Friday.
  • 00:03:51.160 --> 00:03:53.130
  • Satan thought that the battle
  • 00:03:53.130 --> 00:03:54.280
  • was won for hell on Friday.
  • 00:03:55.160 --> 00:03:58.160
  • But, three days later,
  • 00:03:58.160 --> 00:04:00.040
  • a mighty angel was dispatched
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:02.060
  • from heaven.
  • 00:04:02.060 --> 00:04:03.190
  • He rolled the stone away,
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:05.230
  • and Jesus Christ stepped out
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:08.070
  • of that tomb.
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:09.210
  • When He died on the cross,
  • 00:04:09.210 --> 00:04:11.120
  • He was a silent Lamb,
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:13.270
  • but when He rose from the dead
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:15.220
  • and stepped out of that tomb,
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:17.210
  • He was no longer a silent Lamb,
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:20.050
  • He was the lion
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:21.010
  • of the Tribe of Judah,
  • 00:04:21.010 --> 00:04:22.140
  • and He was roaring
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:23.240
  • with resurrection power.
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:26.050
  • And today, the message
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:27.100
  • is He is not here in that tomb,
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:31.240
  • He is risen!
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.200
  • It's Sunday.
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:34.190
  • and our Savior
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:35.280
  • has humiliated hell.
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:38.010
  • Our Savior has outwitted Satan.
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:41.070
  • He has overpowered the grave.
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:43.190
  • He has caused sin to bow
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:45.090
  • its knee.
  • 00:04:45.090 --> 00:04:46.110
  • He has defeated the strategies
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:48.110
  • of hell against you
  • 00:04:48.110 --> 00:04:49.230
  • and against your family.
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:51.120
  • He has taken your sin
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:53.000
  • and your shame and He has
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.180
  • pronounced that you are forgiven
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:56.260
  • and you are a child
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:58.160
  • of the Most High God!
  • 00:04:58.160 --> 00:05:01.010
  • It's Sunday and Jesus
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:03.060
  • is coming again!
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:05.200
  • Do you believe that?
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:07.250
  • Say Amen, somebody.
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:10.130
  • The trumpet is gonna sound.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.200
  • There is going to come a change.
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:15.020
  • In the moment,
  • 00:05:15.020 --> 00:05:16.030
  • in the twinkling of an eye,
  • 00:05:16.030 --> 00:05:17.170
  • we'll be called up together
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:19.110
  • to meet the Lord in the air.
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:21.260
  • It's Sunday,
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:23.010
  • but Jesus is coming.
  • 00:05:23.010 --> 00:05:25.090
  • I love that line
  • 00:05:25.090 --> 00:05:26.220
  • that S.M. Lockridge said.
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:28.180
  • He said, "The world is winning,
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:31.200
  • people are sinning,
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:33.120
  • and evil is grinning".
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:36.200
  • But I want to say, it's Sunday.
  • 00:05:36.200 --> 00:05:39.040
  • They may be grinning and winning
  • 00:05:39.040 --> 00:05:41.080
  • and sinning,
  • 00:05:41.080 --> 00:05:42.150
  • but Jesus is coming
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:44.050
  • and we better be ready.
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:45.280
  • We better get our hearts ready
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:47.240
  • and we better get
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:48.170
  • our families ready,
  • 00:05:48.170 --> 00:05:49.220
  • because He's coming soon.
  • 00:05:49.270 --> 00:05:52.270
  • He's coming soon.
  • 00:05:52.270 --> 00:05:54.150
  • You can't take half the gospel,
  • 00:05:54.150 --> 00:05:56.290
  • and it doesn't end at the tomb.
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:59.180
  • He's coming soon.
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:02.050
  • I've read the back of the book,
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:04.110
  • and it's Sunday,
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:05.200
  • but Jesus is coming.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:08.110
  • I want you to know that we
  • 00:06:08.110 --> 00:06:10.130
  • don't celebrate a resurrection
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:13.000
  • only that happened
  • 00:06:13.000 --> 00:06:14.030
  • 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:06:14.030 --> 00:06:16.020
  • but we celebrate
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.060
  • another resurrection
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:18.260
  • that is coming for those
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:20.150
  • who have died in the Lord.
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:22.090
  • Your mothers, your fathers,
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:23.270
  • your children, your sons,
  • 00:06:23.270 --> 00:06:25.150
  • your husbands, your wives,
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:26.260
  • people that you love,
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:28.110
  • people that you miss,
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:29.190
  • people that you think about,
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:31.040
  • and you couldn't help but see -
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:32.220
  • Before me,
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:33.210
  • my father's face flashed,
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:35.190
  • that's gone on to be
  • 00:06:35.190 --> 00:06:36.200
  • with the Lord.
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:37.120
  • My brother's face
  • 00:06:37.120 --> 00:06:38.130
  • came before me.
  • 00:06:38.130 --> 00:06:39.220
  • and other ones...
  • 00:06:39.220 --> 00:06:40.140
  • my grandfather,
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:41.130
  • people that I've loved
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:42.150
  • and people in this church that
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:44.100
  • I preached their funeral,
  • 00:06:44.100 --> 00:06:45.220
  • but one of these days
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:47.230
  • the trumpet is going to sound,
  • 00:06:47.230 --> 00:06:49.260
  • and we're going to a land
  • 00:06:49.260 --> 00:06:51.100
  • where there is no more death,
  • 00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:53.080
  • no more crying, no more sighing,
  • 00:06:53.080 --> 00:06:55.240
  • no more pain,
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:57.110
  • for the former things
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:58.270
  • will be passed away!
  • 00:06:58.270 --> 00:07:00.220
  • And I want to remind Satan
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:02.160
  • that one angel is going to chain
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:04.190
  • him and throw him
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:06.150
  • in a bottomless pit,
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:08.020
  • and ultimately,
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:09.070
  • he's gonna burn in the lake
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:10.220
  • of fire that I'll never go to
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:13.090
  • because Jesus is alive!
  • 00:07:13.140 --> 00:07:16.140
  • It's Sunday,
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:17.230
  • but Jesus is coming!
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:20.080
  • Give Him a praise if you
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:21.080
  • believe it.
  • 00:07:21.080 --> 00:07:22.070
  • Give Him a mighty praise
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:23.110
  • right now!
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.270
  • Hallelujah!
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:29.180
  • Calvary was a tremendous
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:34.040
  • temporary victory for Satan
  • 00:07:34.150 --> 00:07:37.150
  • and all of hell.
  • 00:07:37.150 --> 00:07:40.140
  • It's a true story about
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:42.040
  • the war between
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:43.040
  • England and France.
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:44.270
  • Napoleon had invaded England,
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:48.040
  • and everyone knew in that nation
  • 00:07:48.040 --> 00:07:49.260
  • of England that if they didn't
  • 00:07:49.260 --> 00:07:51.220
  • make a stand and stop Napoleon
  • 00:07:51.220 --> 00:07:54.010
  • at a place called Waterloo,
  • 00:07:54.010 --> 00:07:56.230
  • the whole nation would fall.
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:58.170
  • They would all go
  • 00:07:58.170 --> 00:07:59.110
  • into captivity.
  • 00:07:59.110 --> 00:08:01.160
  • And so, the Battle of Waterloo
  • 00:08:01.160 --> 00:08:03.050
  • became critical.
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:06.060
  • The British captain
  • 00:08:06.060 --> 00:08:07.140
  • was named Wellington.
  • 00:08:07.140 --> 00:08:09.100
  • He was over all of the armed
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:10.120
  • forces that would fight Napoleon
  • 00:08:10.120 --> 00:08:12.100
  • and his powerful army.
  • 00:08:12.100 --> 00:08:14.060
  • They had never been defeated.
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:17.180
  • And back then, they had signal
  • 00:08:17.180 --> 00:08:19.010
  • men that would stand
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.230
  • on mountains and they would
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:22.120
  • send signals from mountaintop
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:24.180
  • to mountaintop,
  • 00:08:24.180 --> 00:08:26.060
  • from signal man one to another,
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:28.290
  • until they reached
  • 00:08:28.290 --> 00:08:29.230
  • the city of London.
  • 00:08:29.230 --> 00:08:32.020
  • And there in London,
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:33.030
  • thousands upon thousands
  • 00:08:33.030 --> 00:08:34.100
  • of people...back in those days,
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:36.210
  • the only form of communication,
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:38.280
  • they erected a big billboard
  • 00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:42.190
  • as massive as they could see,
  • 00:08:42.190 --> 00:08:44.120
  • so that everybody in the streets
  • 00:08:44.120 --> 00:08:46.000
  • of London could look up
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:47.140
  • and see how the battle
  • 00:08:47.140 --> 00:08:49.070
  • had ended at Waterloo.
  • 00:08:49.070 --> 00:08:51.110
  • They knew if Wellington
  • 00:08:51.110 --> 00:08:53.020
  • had been defeated at Waterloo,
  • 00:08:53.020 --> 00:08:55.170
  • then the battle was over
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:57.260
  • and they were going
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:08:58.190
  • to become slaves to Napoleon
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:02.010
  • and his armies.
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:04.200
  • So they waited, watching,
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:08.180
  • and the signals started
  • 00:09:08.180 --> 00:09:09.200
  • coming from the battlefield,
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:11.060
  • how the battle had gone.
  • 00:09:11.060 --> 00:09:13.200
  • And just as it would happen --
  • 00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:15.090
  • this is a true story --
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:16.220
  • the fog started setting in
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:18.050
  • as...if you've
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:19.020
  • ever been there to London,
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:20.090
  • it can come suddenly
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:21.170
  • out of nowhere.
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:23.140
  • And as a man was writing
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:24.230
  • on the billboard with red paint,
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:27.000
  • he wrote these words,
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:28.220
  • and then the fog came,
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:29.260
  • and it covered.
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:32.170
  • But all they could see was
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:33.170
  • two words that he wrote --
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:35.250
  • "Wellington defeated."
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:38.280
  • Wellington defeated.
  • 00:09:38.280 --> 00:09:41.090
  • The people of London,
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:42.110
  • their hearts sank in fear.
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:44.170
  • Many began to tremble and cry,
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:46.110
  • and some ran to their homes
  • 00:09:46.110 --> 00:09:48.020
  • and locked the doors,
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:49.050
  • and others stood in the streets,
  • 00:09:49.050 --> 00:09:51.000
  • dumbfounded, heartbroken,
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:52.210
  • realizing that their nation
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:54.070
  • would never be the same.
  • 00:09:54.070 --> 00:09:56.080
  • "Wellington defeated"
  • 00:09:56.080 --> 00:09:58.040
  • was the message.
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:10:00.110
  • But as some were still
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:01.090
  • standing in the streets,
  • 00:10:01.090 --> 00:10:03.250
  • the fog began to lift
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.060
  • some time later, and someone
  • 00:10:05.060 --> 00:10:07.030
  • happened to look up
  • 00:10:07.030 --> 00:10:08.180
  • and they realized that
  • 00:10:08.180 --> 00:10:09.260
  • the message had been obscured
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:11.180
  • in its entirety.
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:12.190
  • One word was missing.
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:15.100
  • and the word missing
  • 00:10:16.180 --> 00:10:17.180
  • was "Napoleon".
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:20.290
  • Nobody knew.
  • 00:10:20.290 --> 00:10:22.150
  • It didn't look like it.
  • 00:10:22.150 --> 00:10:23.250
  • turned into rejoicing.
  • 00:10:25.270 --> 00:10:27.270
  • Suddenly, the people realized
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:30.060
  • that Napoleon didn't defeat
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:33.070
  • our general,
  • 00:10:33.070 --> 00:10:34.240
  • but our general
  • 00:10:34.240 --> 00:10:35.230
  • defeated Napoleon!
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:37.220
  • And they were rejoicing,
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:39.030
  • and they were dancing
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:40.030
  • in the streets.
  • 00:10:40.030 --> 00:10:42.070
  • Two thousand years ago,
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:43.180
  • on the cross, when they put
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:46.040
  • Jesus...crammed that crown
  • 00:10:47.040 --> 00:10:50.040
  • of thorns on His head,
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:51.200
  • and stabbed Him in His side,
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:53.050
  • and pierced His heart up
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.240
  • through His abdomen,
  • 00:10:54.240 --> 00:10:56.050
  • ripped His back to pieces,
  • 00:10:56.050 --> 00:10:57.240
  • and it looked like that it
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:10:59.150
  • was over and hell put up
  • 00:10:59.150 --> 00:11:00.280
  • a big billboard,
  • 00:11:01.050 --> 00:11:04.050
  • "Jesus Christ defeated",
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:08.090
  • and all of hell was laughing,
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:10.180
  • and all of heaven was weeping.
  • 00:11:10.180 --> 00:11:13.130
  • But three days later,
  • 00:11:13.130 --> 00:11:15.150
  • at the dawning of a new day,
  • 00:11:15.150 --> 00:11:18.010
  • suddenly the fog lifted
  • 00:11:18.010 --> 00:11:20.010
  • and the message was not,
  • 00:11:20.010 --> 00:11:21.240
  • when Jesus came out
  • 00:11:21.240 --> 00:11:22.240
  • "Jesus Christ defeated",
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:26.000
  • it was
  • 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:26.250
  • "Jesus Christ defeated Satan!"
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:30.170
  • He defeated hell!
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:32.280
  • and He defeated your sin
  • 00:11:35.130 --> 00:11:38.030
  • and shame!
  • 00:11:38.030 --> 00:11:39.170
  • Somebody give the Lord a praise!
  • 00:11:39.170 --> 00:11:41.150
  • I'm glad that Calvary was
  • 00:11:41.150 --> 00:11:43.170
  • the devil's Waterloo.
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:49.000
  • I heard a story the other day,
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:50.170
  • or read it actually,
  • 00:11:50.170 --> 00:11:52.200
  • about a man who was
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:55.070
  • in a hurry walking home,
  • 00:11:55.070 --> 00:11:57.080
  • and he decided that he needed
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:11:58.240
  • to take a short cut.
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:11:59.280
  • And it was very dark this night,
  • 00:11:59.280 --> 00:12:01.030
  • and he had to go through
  • 00:12:01.030 --> 00:12:03.080
  • a cemetery,
  • 00:12:03.080 --> 00:12:04.280
  • and he had to walk through
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:05.280
  • it with no lights.
  • 00:12:05.280 --> 00:12:07.230
  • And he was walking,
  • 00:12:07.230 --> 00:12:08.250
  • and I guess he was a little
  • 00:12:08.250 --> 00:12:09.210
  • freaked out,
  • 00:12:09.210 --> 00:12:10.230
  • and he was looking around,
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:12.080
  • hearing strange sounds,
  • 00:12:12.080 --> 00:12:13.200
  • and he walked and fell
  • 00:12:13.200 --> 00:12:15.060
  • right into a grave
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:17.060
  • that had been freshly dug.
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:19.120
  • They were probably gonna put
  • 00:12:19.120 --> 00:12:20.070
  • a coffin in there
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:21.020
  • the next morning.
  • 00:12:21.020 --> 00:12:22.120
  • And when he hit the bottom
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:23.090
  • of that grave,
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:25.040
  • he jumped and he clawed,
  • 00:12:25.040 --> 00:12:26.240
  • and he did everything he could
  • 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:28.140
  • to try to get out,
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:29.190
  • but it was too deep
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:30.230
  • and he could not get out.
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:32.010
  • And after trying for about
  • 00:12:32.010 --> 00:12:33.020
  • 30 minutes and sweating,
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:34.190
  • and he finally just sat
  • 00:12:34.190 --> 00:12:35.270
  • in the dark corner of that grave
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:37.240
  • that's so dark that you
  • 00:12:37.240 --> 00:12:38.270
  • couldn't even hardly see
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:39.270
  • your hand in front of you.
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:41.100
  • He sat in the shadow
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:42.110
  • of that corner of that grave
  • 00:12:42.110 --> 00:12:43.200
  • and just said to himself,
  • 00:12:43.200 --> 00:12:44.250
  • "I'll wait for the sun
  • 00:12:44.250 --> 00:12:46.060
  • to come up and somebody'll
  • 00:12:46.060 --> 00:12:47.210
  • come find me tomorrow".
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:49.270
  • While he was sitting
  • 00:12:49.270 --> 00:12:50.230
  • in that shadow,
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:53.190
  • along comes another man,
  • 00:12:53.190 --> 00:12:56.040
  • and he falls into the same grave
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:59.180
  • on the other end.
  • 00:12:59.180 --> 00:13:01.110
  • And he naturally and quickly
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:03.180
  • starts grabbing,
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:04.280
  • and clawing, and scratching,
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:06.240
  • trying to lift himself
  • 00:13:06.240 --> 00:13:09.020
  • out of that grave,
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:11.040
  • and he can't get out.
  • 00:13:11.040 --> 00:13:12.190
  • He tries, and tries, and tries,
  • 00:13:12.190 --> 00:13:14.060
  • and finally after
  • 00:13:14.060 --> 00:13:15.030
  • about ten minutes,
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:16.140
  • he just sits down in the side
  • 00:13:16.140 --> 00:13:18.070
  • of the grave and he thinks
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:19.250
  • to himself,
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:20.240
  • "Well, I can't get out".
  • 00:13:20.240 --> 00:13:22.000
  • And suddenly,
  • 00:13:22.000 --> 00:13:22.270
  • while he's sitting there,
  • 00:13:22.270 --> 00:13:24.130
  • he hears from the other end
  • 00:13:24.130 --> 00:13:26.020
  • of that dark grave, a voice.
  • 00:13:26.020 --> 00:13:28.230
  • And the voice said,
  • 00:13:28.230 --> 00:13:30.010
  • "You can't get out of here."
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:33.260
  • But, he did!
  • 00:13:37.020 --> 00:13:40.020
  • When they put Jesus
  • 00:13:40.020 --> 00:13:41.080
  • in that tomb, all the demons
  • 00:13:41.250 --> 00:13:44.250
  • in hell and death itself said,
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:48.020
  • "You can't get out of here".
  • 00:13:48.020 --> 00:13:50.160
  • But I promise you, He did!
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:53.200
  • He did it for me!
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:55.150
  • He did it for you!
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:57.150
  • He paid the price!
  • 00:13:57.150 --> 00:13:59.100
  • He conquered death, hell,
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:01.220
  • and the grave.
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:02.270
  • Tell somebody beside you,
  • 00:14:02.270 --> 00:14:04.140
  • "He did it!"
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:08.250
  • It's Sunday,
  • 00:14:08.250 --> 00:14:10.150
  • but Jesus is coming.
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:15.250
  • Oh, I'm so thankful
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:18.230
  • that if I die in the Lord today,
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:22.200
  • I'm ready to go.
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:23.210
  • I'm in a suit and everything,
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:24.200
  • praise the Lord!
  • 00:14:24.200 --> 00:14:26.180
  • Just put me in there.
  • 00:14:26.180 --> 00:14:27.190
  • I look good today.
  • 00:14:27.190 --> 00:14:28.220
  • Got a tie on.
  • 00:14:28.220 --> 00:14:29.270
  • I don't always look like this.
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:34.270
  • But, you know what?
  • 00:14:34.270 --> 00:14:37.180
  • The shell, the old body,
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:40.130
  • will be empty, but my spirit,
  • 00:14:40.130 --> 00:14:43.070
  • to be absent from the body,
  • 00:14:43.070 --> 00:14:44.220
  • is to be present
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:45.180
  • with the Lord.
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:48.230
  • You understand, if you've
  • 00:14:48.230 --> 00:14:49.230
  • lost a loved one,
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:50.240
  • they are presently
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:52.000
  • with the Lord.
  • 00:14:52.000 --> 00:14:54.270
  • We have eternal life.
  • 00:14:54.270 --> 00:14:57.090
  • We don't fear death.
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:14:59.140
  • Cancer can't keep me down.
  • 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:04.000
  • Disease can't keep me down.
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:06.290
  • Nothing can separate me
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:09.230
  • from the love of God
  • 00:15:09.230 --> 00:15:11.180
  • and eternal life that has been
  • 00:15:11.180 --> 00:15:13.250
  • given through Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:19.190
  • Boy, when you get
  • 00:15:19.190 --> 00:15:20.130
  • that revelation,
  • 00:15:20.130 --> 00:15:22.070
  • why would you turn Him down?
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:24.070
  • Why would you wait?
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:25.090
  • Why would you put it off
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:26.040
  • to another day,
  • 00:15:26.040 --> 00:15:27.070
  • or when I get older?
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:29.000
  • You can have eternal life,
  • 00:15:30.050 --> 00:15:33.050
  • that because He was resurrected
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:36.250
  • and came out of the grave,
  • 00:15:36.250 --> 00:15:39.180
  • you have resurrection power.
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:42.270
  • You have the power
  • 00:15:42.270 --> 00:15:45.070
  • of the Holy Spirit right now
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:49.070
  • that says there ain't no grave
  • 00:15:49.070 --> 00:15:51.180
  • -- the grave of alcoholism,
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:53.190
  • the grave of drug addiction,
  • 00:15:53.190 --> 00:15:55.210
  • the grave of shame,
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:57.050
  • the grave of failure,
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:59.150
  • the grave of self-hatred,
  • 00:16:00.080 --> 00:16:03.080
  • eating disorders,
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:04.130
  • whatever it is that the enemy
  • 00:16:04.130 --> 00:16:06.200
  • has put you in
  • 00:16:06.200 --> 00:16:09.190
  • and said this is going
  • 00:16:09.190 --> 00:16:10.230
  • to be your death,
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:12.100
  • this is going to be your ending.
  • 00:16:12.100 --> 00:16:14.050
  • There is no grave
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:15.180
  • that can hold you if Jesus
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:18.020
  • is Lord of your life,
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:19.110
  • because He gives you
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:20.130
  • resurrection power today.
  • 00:16:24.080 --> 00:16:27.080
  • And all you have to do
  • 00:16:27.080 --> 00:16:29.150
  • is receive it.
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:31.230
  • I have the greatest job
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:32.210
  • in the world.
  • 00:16:32.210 --> 00:16:34.090
  • I get to tell you that God
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:36.200
  • loves you, that God is for you,
  • 00:16:37.220 --> 00:16:40.220
  • and He wants to get in you,
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:42.210
  • and He wants to transform
  • 00:16:42.210 --> 00:16:43.270
  • your life,
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:45.260
  • and all He's waiting on
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:47.160
  • is an invite.
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:50.040
  • If you'd just open the door,
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:52.210
  • if you'd just respond,
  • 00:16:52.210 --> 00:16:54.010
  • if you'd just let
  • 00:16:54.010 --> 00:16:54.250
  • your stinking pride
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:57.180
  • be put under your foot today,
  • 00:16:57.290 --> 00:17:01.010
  • and say, you know what?
  • 00:17:01.010 --> 00:17:02.210
  • It's Sunday,
  • 00:17:02.210 --> 00:17:04.200
  • but Jesus is coming.
  • 00:17:04.200 --> 00:17:07.070
  • I'd better get ready!
  • 00:17:07.070 --> 00:17:08.130
  • I'd better get my family ready!
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:09.250
  • I'd better get...my whole life

  • needs to be in one direction,
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:13.170
  • moving toward heaven,
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:15.160
  • moving toward eternity.
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:18.090
  • How will you spend eternity?
  • 00:17:18.150 --> 00:17:21.150
  • Because He lives
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:32.080
  • Everybody, at every campus,
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:38.220
  • That's beautiful.
  • 00:17:43.230 --> 00:17:45.040
  • All fear is gone
  • 00:17:52.140 --> 00:17:55.140
  • Because I know, I know
  • 00:18:01.190 --> 00:18:04.190
  • He holds my future
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:11.280
  • My life is worth the living
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:19.050
  • Would you just lift your
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:26.280
  • Because He lives
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:36.000
  • I can face
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:38.260
  • I can face tomorrow
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:42.160
  • Oh, yes, I can
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:44.130
  • Because He lives
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:49.170
  • He's Emmanuel
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:51.220
  • All my fears
  • 00:18:52.100 --> 00:18:55.100
  • they're gone
  • 00:18:56.150 --> 00:18:59.150
  • Because I know
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:05.230
  • I really know
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:08.050
  • He holds my future
  • 00:19:12.210 --> 00:19:15.210
  • And my life is worth
  • 00:19:16.110 --> 00:19:19.110
  • the living
  • 00:19:19.110 --> 00:19:21.200
  • Then sings my soul
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:35.110
  • My Savior, God, to Thee
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:45.090
  • Then I sing
  • 00:20:01.100 --> 00:20:04.100
  • from my soul
  • 00:20:04.100 --> 00:20:06.230
  • Oh, my Savior, my God
  • 00:20:08.210 --> 00:20:11.210
  • I sing to Thee
  • 00:20:13.230 --> 00:20:16.230
  • When I think about
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:32.050
  • Sings my soul
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:39.000
  • My Savior, God, to Thee
  • 00:20:44.220 --> 00:20:47.220
  • How great Thou art
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:56.020
  • If you're listening to me today,
  • 00:21:05.270 --> 00:21:07.170
  • it's not by accident.
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:11.030
  • I really feel a constraining
  • 00:21:11.030 --> 00:21:13.150
  • now that many, many need to make
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:16.270
  • a decision for Jesus Christ.
  • 00:21:16.270 --> 00:21:19.180
  • They're backsliders that
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:22.010
  • need to come running,
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:23.010
  • not to a God who's angry at you,
  • 00:21:23.010 --> 00:21:25.210
  • but one who's ready to wrap
  • 00:21:25.210 --> 00:21:27.010
  • His arms around you.
  • 00:21:27.010 --> 00:21:29.130
  • He's been waiting.
  • 00:21:30.050 --> 00:21:33.050
  • If you want Jesus to be Lord
  • 00:21:33.050 --> 00:21:35.010
  • of your life and you don't
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:36.040
  • know you're right with God
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:37.100
  • and you'd like
  • 00:21:37.100 --> 00:21:38.010
  • to have that peace,
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:40.070
  • that forgiveness, and you know
  • 00:21:40.070 --> 00:21:42.010
  • that's you,
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:43.040
  • I won't embarrass you,
  • 00:21:43.040 --> 00:21:44.210
  • I won't humiliate you.
  • 00:21:44.210 --> 00:21:45.240
  • I'm gonna pray for you.
  • 00:21:45.240 --> 00:21:46.290
  • But He never comes where
  • 00:21:46.290 --> 00:21:48.050
  • He's not invited.
  • 00:21:48.050 --> 00:21:49.170
  • And when you raise your hand
  • 00:21:49.170 --> 00:21:50.240
  • in a moment,
  • 00:21:50.240 --> 00:21:51.280
  • that is the invitation and His
  • 00:21:51.280 --> 00:21:53.150
  • Spirit will come running.
  • 00:21:54.000 --> 00:21:57.000
  • "Pastor, pray for me.
  • 00:21:57.000 --> 00:21:58.220
  • I need to get right
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:21:59.150
  • with God today."
  • 00:21:59.150 --> 00:22:00.120
  • If that's you,
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:01.050
  • boldly lift your hand high
  • 00:22:01.050 --> 00:22:02.080
  • and unashamed.
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:03.100
  • It's powerful.
  • 00:22:03.100 --> 00:22:04.120
  • It's powerful.
  • 00:22:04.120 --> 00:22:05.180
  • Raise those hands,
  • 00:22:05.180 --> 00:22:06.120
  • all over the building,
  • 00:22:06.120 --> 00:22:07.150
  • in the overflows.
  • 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:08.200
  • Thank you for raising that hand.
  • 00:22:08.200 --> 00:22:11.170
  • You can put it down.
  • 00:22:11.170 --> 00:22:13.040
  • Jesus saw every one
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:15.060
  • of those hands.
  • 00:22:15.060 --> 00:22:17.040
  • And now, I'm going to ask
  • 00:22:17.040 --> 00:22:18.020
  • this congregation, in unison,
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:20.010
  • out loud, to pray a prayer
  • 00:22:20.210 --> 00:22:23.210
  • that is a biblical prayer
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:25.290
  • that God said I'll back it up.
  • 00:22:25.290 --> 00:22:27.170
  • I'm the truth and I'll do what
  • 00:22:27.170 --> 00:22:29.020
  • I said I would do if you'll
  • 00:22:29.020 --> 00:22:30.100
  • pray this.
  • 00:22:30.100 --> 00:22:32.100
  • Everybody in this room,
  • 00:22:32.100 --> 00:22:33.130
  • just lift your hand toward
  • 00:22:33.130 --> 00:22:34.210
  • heaven and say these words.

  • I believe You were born
  • 00:22:41.180 --> 00:22:42.150
  • of a virgin.
  • 00:22:42.150 --> 00:22:44.090
  • I believe You died on a cross.
  • 00:22:44.090 --> 00:22:47.040
  • I believe the blood You shed
  • 00:22:47.060 --> 00:22:50.060
  • was precious blood
  • 00:22:51.110 --> 00:22:54.110
  • and it cleanses my sins.
  • 00:22:54.110 --> 00:22:57.060
  • And I believe,
  • 00:22:57.060 --> 00:22:59.010
  • on the third day, You did it.
  • 00:22:59.180 --> 00:23:02.200
  • You came out of the grave.
  • 00:23:02.200 --> 00:23:05.120
  • And because You came out,
  • 00:23:05.150 --> 00:23:08.150

  • 00:23:51.260 --> 00:23:52.250
  • of this program,
  • 00:23:52.250 --> 00:23:54.060
  • I want to share with you
  • 00:23:54.060 --> 00:23:55.070
  • a humbling opportunity
  • 00:23:55.070 --> 00:23:57.230
  • that we have to be a part
  • 00:23:57.230 --> 00:23:59.070
  • of fulfilling Biblical prophecy,
  • 00:23:59.070 --> 00:24:01.230
  • think about that.
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:03.100
  • You see, while I was
  • 00:24:03.100 --> 00:24:04.020
  • in Israel this time,
  • 00:24:04.020 --> 00:24:05.280
  • the Lord spoke the Scripture
  • 00:24:05.280 --> 00:24:07.160
  • from Isiah that said,
  • 00:24:07.160 --> 00:24:09.090
  • "Comfort ye, comfort ye,
  • 00:24:09.090 --> 00:24:12.030
  • My people."
  • 00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:13.010
  • He said, "The people
  • 00:24:13.010 --> 00:24:14.190
  • are being terrified,
  • 00:24:14.190 --> 00:24:16.120
  • the people are being attacked."
  • 00:24:16.120 --> 00:24:18.260
  • In one place we went,
  • 00:24:18.260 --> 00:24:20.100
  • they were being attacked
  • 00:24:20.100 --> 00:24:21.220
  • over, and over, and over.
  • 00:24:21.220 --> 00:24:23.040
  • Missiles were falling,
  • 00:24:23.040 --> 00:24:24.260
  • and fires were being started
  • 00:24:24.260 --> 00:24:26.260
  • because of the dryness
  • 00:24:26.260 --> 00:24:28.190
  • of the season,
  • 00:24:28.190 --> 00:24:30.160
  • things can be ignited,
  • 00:24:30.160 --> 00:24:33.030
  • and blown up,
  • 00:24:33.030 --> 00:24:34.130
  • and destroyed within
  • 00:24:34.130 --> 00:24:35.200
  • a matter of hours.
  • 00:24:35.200 --> 00:24:37.130
  • And they need comfort.
  • 00:24:37.130 --> 00:24:39.050
  • They don't just
  • 00:24:39.050 --> 00:24:39.240
  • need our prayers,
  • 00:24:39.240 --> 00:24:41.060
  • they need our support.
  • 00:24:41.060 --> 00:24:42.240
  • And, right now,
  • 00:24:42.240 --> 00:24:43.170
  • I heard the Lord saying,
  • 00:24:43.170 --> 00:24:44.270
  • "Comfort My people."
  • 00:24:44.270 --> 00:24:47.180
  • Can we fulfill that
  • 00:24:47.180 --> 00:24:48.150
  • Scripture together,
  • 00:24:48.150 --> 00:24:49.140
  • in Isaiah?
  • 00:24:49.140 --> 00:24:50.130
  • "Comfort My people..."
  • 00:24:50.130 --> 00:24:52.190
  • He said it twice because
  • 00:24:52.190 --> 00:24:54.190
  • it's so important that
  • 00:24:54.190 --> 00:24:56.140
  • we, Christian believers,
  • 00:24:56.140 --> 00:24:57.220
  • grab the hands of those
  • 00:24:58.020 --> 00:25:01.040
