  • 00:01:59.270 --> 00:02:01.240
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:03.110
  • - I AM SO PLEASED TO SIT AND TALK TO YOU
  • 00:02:03.130 --> 00:02:05.190
  • PARTICULARLY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR ABOUT OPERATION
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:07.180
  • CHRISTMAS CHILD.
  • 00:02:07.200 --> 00:02:10.220
  • AND IT HAS THREE FASCINATING ASPECTS THAT
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:15.170
  • I KNOW WE'RE GOING TO CHAT ABOUT, AND THAT'S
  • 00:02:15.190 --> 00:02:18.180
  • EVANGELISM, DISCIPLESHIP, AND MULTIPLICATION.
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:22.120
  • EXPLAIN THAT TO US.
  • 00:02:22.140 --> 00:02:24.190
  • WOULD YOU?
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:26.020
  • - FIRST OF ALL, WE ASK FOR PEOPLE JUST TO TAKE A
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:27.270
  • SHOE BOX, AND FILL IT WITH ITEMS FOR A CHILD.
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:31.290
  • IF IT'S FOR A GIRL MAKE A DOLL OR SOMETHING FOR HER
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:35.070
  • HAIR, SCHOOL SUPPLIES, A PEN, PAPER, TOOTHBRUSH,
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:39.220
  • THOSE KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:41.090
  • FOR BOYS SOCCER BALLS, SOME LITTLE TOY CARS.
  • 00:02:41.110 --> 00:02:43.180
  • WHAT THIS DOES -- MOST OF THESE KIDS HAVE NEVER HAD
  • 00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:47.060
  • A GIFT IN THEIR LIFE, AND WHEN YOU GIVE A GIFT TO
  • 00:02:47.080 --> 00:02:49.270
  • THEM, NOW THEY'RE GOING TO LISTEN TO WHAT YOU
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:51.210
  • HAVE TO SAY.
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:53.080
  • BUT WE ASK PEOPLE TO PRAY AS YOU PACK THAT BOX,
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:57.100
  • PRAY FOR THE CHILD WHO IS GOING TO GET IT.
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:59.160
  • I DON'T KNOW WHO IS GOING TO GET IT.
  • 00:02:59.180 --> 00:03:00.250
  • GOD DOES.
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:01.270
  • - YES.
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:03.070
  • - AND WE KNOW GOD HEARS THE PRAYER OF ONE
  • 00:03:03.090 --> 00:03:04.210
  • RIGHTEOUS PERSON.
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:06.050
  • AND THIS YEAR WE'LL COLLECT AROUND
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:07.260
  • 11 MILLION BOXES.
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:09.080
  • - WOW.
  • 00:03:09.100 --> 00:03:10.210
  • - 11 MILLION PEOPLE PRAYING FOR THE PEOPLE IN
  • 00:03:10.230 --> 00:03:12.280
  • THE WORLD, JUST THINK WHAT GOD MIGHT DO.
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:14.250
  • SO IT'S EVANGELISM BECAUSE EVERY CHILD WE
  • 00:03:14.270 --> 00:03:17.270
  • GIVE A BOX TO, WE MAKE THE EFFORT TO TELL THEM
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:21.070
  • THIS IS THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS, THAT GOD SO
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:24.100
  • LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE.
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:25.280
  • AND THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT.
  • 00:03:26.000 --> 00:03:28.040
  • IT'S ABOUT GOD GIVING, GOD GIVING HIS SON TO
  • 00:03:28.060 --> 00:03:30.250
  • TAKE AWAY OUR SINS.
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:33.050
  • AND IF WHOSOEVER, THAT'S THE CHILDREN OF THE
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:35.190
  • WORLD, THAT'S EVERYONE WHO IS LISTENING,
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:37.160
  • WHOSOEVER BELIEVE IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE
  • 00:03:37.180 --> 00:03:39.290
  • EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:03:40.010 --> 00:03:42.280
  • WE WANT THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD TO KNOW THERE
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:44.230
  • IS A GOD, THAT HE CARES ABOUT THEM, HE HASN'T
  • 00:03:44.250 --> 00:03:47.030
  • FORGOTTEN THEM, THAT HE LOVES THEM, THAT HE SENT
  • 00:03:47.050 --> 00:03:49.290
  • HIS SON JESUS CHRIST FROM HEAVEN TO THIS EARTH TO
  • 00:03:50.010 --> 00:03:53.020
  • TAKE OUR SINS.
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:54.270
  • I WANT THE CHILDREN TO KNOW THAT THEY CAN INVITE
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:58.070
  • CHRIST INTO THEIR HEART, AND HE WILL CLEANSE THEM.
  • 00:03:58.090 --> 00:04:02.180
  • HE'LL FORGIVE THEM.
  • 00:04:02.200 --> 00:04:04.000
  • THEY CAN HAVE A NEW LIFE, A NEW BEGINNING, AND THEY
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:05.290
  • CAN HAVE THAT HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH
  • 00:04:06.010 --> 00:04:08.030
  • FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:04:08.050 --> 00:04:09.230
  • SO IT'S EVANGELISM.
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:11.160
  • IT'S DISCIPLESHIP.
  • 00:04:11.180 --> 00:04:13.290
  • FOR THE CHILDREN THAT RECEIVE CHRIST, WE HAVE A
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:16.280
  • PROGRAM CALLED THE GREATEST JOURNEY.
  • 00:04:17.000 --> 00:04:18.290
  • 12 LESSONS THEY HAVE TO STUD HE OTHER, AND THEY
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:21.220
  • HAVE TO TAKE A TEST.
  • 00:04:21.240 --> 00:04:23.110
  • THEY HAVE TO MEMORIZE SCRIPTURE!
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:25.190
  • WHAT IS THE GREATEST JOURNEY?
  • 00:04:25.210 --> 00:04:26.270
  • - WELL, IT'S A BIRDS EYE VIEW OF THE OLD AND NEW
  • 00:04:26.290 --> 00:04:28.160
  • TESTAMENT, GOING THROUGH THE MAIN BIBLE
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:30.220
  • CHARACTERS, AND THEN IT'S MEMORIZING SCRIPTURE THAT
  • 00:04:30.240 --> 00:04:34.150
  • IS FOCUSED ON EVANGELISM SO THAT A CHILD CAN LEAD
  • 00:04:34.170 --> 00:04:37.010
  • ANOTHER CHILD OR FRIEND TO CHRIST.
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:40.060
  • NOW, THEY HAVE TO REPEAT THESE VERSES WORD FOR
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:42.250
  • WORD TO THEIR PASTOR.
  • 00:04:42.270 --> 00:04:44.180
  • THE PASTOR WILL ASK THEM QUESTIONS ABOUT OKAY, WHO
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:46.290
  • WAS DAVID?
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:48.150
  • OKAY, WHO WAS GOLIATH?
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:50.070
  • WHO ARE THESE BIBLE CHARACTERS?
  • 00:04:50.090 --> 00:04:51.230
  • EXPLAIN THE STORY. THEY HAVE TO TELL THIS TO
  • 00:04:51.250 --> 00:04:53.280
  • THE PASTOR.
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:55.210
  • THEN IF THEY DO IT CORRECTLY, THEN THEY PASS
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:04:58.100
  • AND THEY GET A LITTLE CERTIFICATE.
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:05:00.170
  • WE GIVE THEM A BIBLE, AND THEY HAVE A LITTLE
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:03.010
  • GRADUATION CEREMONY.
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:05.000
  • THEY WEAR A CAP AND A GOWN, SO THIS LAST YEAR
  • 00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:09.010
  • 4. 5 MILLION --
  • 00:05:09.030 --> 00:05:11.270
  • - YOUNG PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:13.050

  • TOOK THE COURSE.
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:18.010
  • - OH, WHAT A BLESSING!
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:19.090
  • - AND 2020 IT WILL BE A LITTLE OVER FIVE MILLION
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:21.120
  • CHILDREN THAT WILL TAKE THIS COURSE, BUT IT'S A VERY
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:24.120
  • SIMPLE COURSE DESIGNED TO GET THEM INTO THE WORD OF
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:27.270
  • GOD SO THEY UNDERSTAND THE BASICS, WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:31.030
  • IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT AND VERSES THAT
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:34.170
  • THEY HAVE TO MEMORIZE LIKE JOHN 3:16
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:37.000
  • AND SO FORTH.
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:39.070
  • - WELL, THAT'S A WONDERFUL PROGRAM, AND MY
  • 00:05:39.090 --> 00:05:41.100
  • GOODNESS, NO WONDER THE CHURCH IS EXPANDING, THE
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:44.280
  • BODY OF BELIEVERS IS EXPANDING EXPONENTIALLY
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:48.090
  • OUT AROUND THE WORLD AWAY FROM OUR NATION, BUT IN
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:53.060
  • OUR NATION AS WELL, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:05:53.080 --> 00:05:54.230
  • - IT IS.
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:56.180
  • AGAIN, IT'S THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:05:56.200 --> 00:05:59.220
  • IT'S NOT SAMARITAN'S PURSE.
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:01.210
  • IT'S NOT FRANKLIN GRAHAM.
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:03.040
  • IT'S GOD DOING IT, OKAY, THROUGH HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:06:03.060 --> 00:06:05.180
  • AND I THINK WHAT WE'RE TO DO, WE'RE TO TELL AS MANY
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:10.000
  • KIDS AS WE CAN, INVITE AS MANY KIDS AS WE CAN, AND
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:14.080
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT JUST HAS TO TAKE IT FROM THERE, SO
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:16.200
  • THAT'S WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:19.110
  • WE PLAY JUST A LITTLE PART IN GOD'S GREAT MOSAIC.
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:22.150
  • WE JUST HAVE A LITTLE PART, BUT THIS IS A WAY

  • WORLD -- WHAT ARE WE DOING FOR THESE CHILDREN?
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:23.080

  • OUT OF THE PACIFIC, AND I JUST FELT WE NEED TO COME
  • 00:13:25.050 --> 00:13:28.190
  • BACK IN THE NAME OF JESUS TO THESE CHILDREN.
  • 00:13:28.210 --> 00:13:31.210
  • WE BOMBED THEIR ISLANDS.
  • 00:13:31.230 --> 00:13:33.200
  • SO MANY CIVILIANS WERE KILLED DURING THE WAR,
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:36.060

  • AND VERY LITTLE SPIRITUAL WORK IS BEING DONE, SO
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:43.190
  • OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD, I THOUGHT LET'S
  • 00:13:43.210 --> 00:13:46.030
  • TAKE THE PACIFIC.
  • 00:13:46.050 --> 00:13:48.090

  • PLASTIC BOXES THEY DON'T LEAK AND IN A WET CLIMATE
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:21.290
  • AFTER THESE TOYS ARE LONG GONE, THAT BOX WILL STILL
  • 00:15:22.010 --> 00:15:25.090
  • BE USED BY THOSE CHILDREN FOR SOMETHING ELSE AND BE
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:27.130
  • A REMINDER OF WHAT GOD DID FOR THEM.
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:29.190

  • YOU FOLK, I HAVE SEEN YOUR TRUCKS, EVEN WHEN

  • SOMETIMES THE VERY FIRST RELIEF AGENCY ON THE
  • 00:16:07.160 --> 00:16:10.110
  • SCENE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:12.250
  • PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TRAGICALLY HIT BY SOME
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:15.220
  • TERRIBLE THING, SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.
  • 00:16:15.240 --> 00:16:20.270
  • - WELL, AND WHEN WE GOT DOWN TO THE BAHAMAS, WE
  • 00:16:20.290 --> 00:16:24.130
  • WERE THERE ABOUT 2 DAYS AFTER THE STORM.
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:27.070
  • WE HAVE OUR OWN AIRCRAFT, HELICOPTERS, AND WE SENT
  • 00:16:27.090 --> 00:16:30.020
  • DOWN THERE AN AIRPLANE.
  • 00:16:30.040 --> 00:16:32.190
  • THE PLACE WAS JUST DEVASTATED.
  • 00:16:32.210 --> 00:16:34.130
  • THE PLACE WAS BLOWN TO PIECES.
  • 00:16:34.150 --> 00:16:36.100
  • GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND WENT UNDER WATER, SO IT WAS
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:39.010
  • LIKE THE HOSPITAL I THINK HAD 13 FEET OF WATER.
  • 00:16:39.030 --> 00:16:41.280
  • WELL, IT WAS SALT WATER, SO IT JUST RUINED ALL THE
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:44.030
  • EQUIPPED, THE ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT AND THEN THEY
  • 00:16:44.050 --> 00:16:46.020
  • HAD NO HOSPITAL.
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:50.010
  • SO SAMARITAN'S PURSE WE ALWAYS CARRY 2 TO 3
  • 00:16:50.030 --> 00:16:52.180
  • FUELED HOSPITALS.
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:57.160
  • SAME THING THAT THE US MILITARY USES.
  • 00:16:57.180 --> 00:17:00.110
  • BUT WE GO TO THE SAME VENDORS, IT'S THE SAME
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:02.250
  • OPERATING ROOMY EQUIPMENT, THE SAME X-RAY
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:05.240
  • EQUIPMENT, THE SAME LABORATORY EQUIPMENT, THE
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:08.270
  • SAME BEDS AND LIGHTS, IT'S ALL THE SAME AS A
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:10.290
  • MILITARY HOSPITAL, A MASH HOSPITAL.
  • 00:17:11.010 --> 00:17:12.060
  • - WOW.
  • 00:17:12.080 --> 00:17:14.000
  • - SO THE UN CALLED AND SAID WOULD WE BE WILLING TO
  • 00:17:14.020 --> 00:17:17.060
  • ASSIST GRAND BAHAMA ISLANDS WITH A HOSPITAL,
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:20.200
  • AND THEN THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH CALLED US BECAUSE
  • 00:17:20.220 --> 00:17:23.140
  • THERE WAS NO MEDICINE AT ALL ON THE ISLAND, AND
  • 00:17:23.160 --> 00:17:25.240
  • THERE'S A LOT OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE HURT.
  • 00:17:25.260 --> 00:17:27.250
  • - OH, YEAH.
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:29.100
  • - SO I MEAN PEOPLE HAVE BEEN STANDING IN WATER
  • 00:17:29.120 --> 00:17:30.280
  • FOR DAYS, STEPPING ON NAILS AND THIS
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:32.120
  • KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:33.260
  • AND THEN YOU JUST HAVE THE NORMAL PROBLEMS

  • SOCIETY HAS WHERE THEY NEED TO GO TO A DOCTOR,
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:38.110
  • SO WE FLEW IN ONE OF OUR FUEL HOSPITALS,
  • 00:17:38.130 --> 00:17:40.210
  • SET THAT THING UP.
  • 00:17:40.230 --> 00:17:42.100
  • WITHIN 24 HOURS, AN 80 BED HOSPITAL WITH A FULL
  • 00:17:42.120 --> 00:17:46.210
  • FUNCTIONING OPERATING THEATER, EMERGENCY AND ER
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:50.200

  • PARKING LOT OF THEIR HOSPITAL.
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:57.270
  • AND WHEN THEIR HOSPITAL IS PUT BACK TOGETHER
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:18:00.050
  • HOPEFULLY IN THE NEXT FIVE TO SIX MONTHS, WE'LL
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:02.140
  • BE ABLE TO MOVE ON, BUT UNTIL THEN WE'RE
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:04.190
  • PROVIDING ALL THE HEALTH CARE FOR GRAND BAHAMA
  • 00:18:04.210 --> 00:18:07.200
  • ISLAND, AND WE HAVE OUR HELICOPTER.
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:10.080
  • WE FLY PEOPLE IN FROM THE OTHER OUTLYING ISLAND
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:12.130
  • THAT HAVE PROBLEMS, SO IT'S A TREMENDOUS -- BUT WE
  • 00:18:12.150 --> 00:18:15.250
  • DECIDED WHAT CAN WE DO FOR THE KIDS?
  • 00:18:15.270 --> 00:18:17.210
  • CHRISTMAS IS COMING.
  • 00:18:17.230 --> 00:18:19.280
  • THESE KIDS HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES AND THEIR SCHOOLS.
  • 00:18:20.000 --> 00:18:22.020
  • SOME HAVE LOST FAMILY MEMBERS.
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:25.180
  • LET'S TAKE OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD AND WE'LL
  • 00:18:25.200 --> 00:18:28.080
  • MAKE KIND OF A SPECIAL AIRLIFT JUST TO THE

  • BAHAMAS, AND WE'RE GOING TO TAKE BOXES JUST LIKE
  • 00:18:31.010 --> 00:18:33.270
  • WE'RE TAKING TO CARABAS.
  • 00:18:33.290 --> 00:18:36.060
  • WE'RE GOING TO GO TO THE KIDS THERE IN THE
  • 00:18:36.080 --> 00:18:39.210
  • BAHAMAS, AND JUST LET THEM KNOW THAT GOD HASN'T
  • 00:18:39.230 --> 00:18:42.010
  • FORGOTTEN THEM.
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:43.120
  • SOMETIMES CHILDREN AND EVEN ADULTS WHEN YOU GO
  • 00:18:43.140 --> 00:18:45.220
  • THROUGH A STORM YOU THINK MAYBE GOD'S MAD AT ME.
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:50.200
  • IS GOD JUDGING US BECAUSE WE'VE DONE SOMETHING.
  • 00:18:50.220 --> 00:18:54.230
  • REMEMBER, JESUS WAS IN STORMS, RIGHT.
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:56.250
  • - YES.
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:58.140
  • - STORMS COME.
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:18:59.290
  • - STORMS DO COME.
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:01.200
  • - AND REMEMBER THE DISCIPLES WHEN THEY WERE
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:03.190
  • IN THE BOAT WITH JESUS.
  • 00:19:03.210 --> 00:19:05.100
  • THEY WERE NOW FEARING FOR THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:19:05.120 --> 00:19:07.020
  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:19:07.040 --> 00:19:08.180
  • - THAT THEY WEREN'T GOING TO SURVIVE, BUT
  • 00:19:08.200 --> 00:19:10.110
  • THEN ALL THE SUDDEN THEY REMEMBERED JESUS IS IN
  • 00:19:10.130 --> 00:19:12.280
  • THIS BOAT, SO THEY GO WAKE HIM UP.
  • 00:19:13.000 --> 00:19:15.200
  • DON'T YOU CARE THAT WE'RE ABOUT TO DROWN?
  • 00:19:15.220 --> 00:19:20.010
  • AND HE HAD I'M SURE A LITTLE SMILE ON HIS FACE.
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:22.120
  • AND OH YE OF LITTLE FAITH.
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:25.220
  • WHAT ARE YOU GUYS CRYING ABOUT? YOU'RE WHINING.
  • 00:19:25.240 --> 00:19:27.270
  • I'M ADDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:29.190
  • - OF COURSE. YOU'RE A PREACHER.
  • 00:19:29.210 --> 00:19:32.000
  • - BUT YOU'RE WHINING.
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:33.290
  • AND HE STANDS UP AND HE REBUKES THE WIND AND THE
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:36.220
  • WAVES, AND IT WAS INSTANTLY CALM.
  • 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:39.270
  • IT DIDN'T JUST SLOWLY SUBSIDE.
  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:41.170
  • INSTANT. STOP.
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.080
  • AND NOW THE DISCIPLES WERE AFRAID AGAIN.
  • 00:19:44.100 --> 00:19:46.250
  • WHAT KIND OF MAN IS THIS THAT EVEN THE WIND AND
  • 00:19:46.270 --> 00:19:49.100
  • THE WAVES OBEY HIS VOICE?
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:51.230
  • HE'S THE KING OF KINGS, HE'S THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:19:51.250 --> 00:19:53.160
  • THAT'S WHO HE IS.
  • 00:19:53.180 --> 00:19:55.130
  • AND I'VE RIDDEN THESE STORMS.
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.040
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE THINK MAYBE GOD IS MAD AT ME.
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:20:00.280
  • I LOST MY ROOF, I LOST MY HOME, IS GOD MAD?
  • 00:20:01.000 --> 00:20:04.290
  • I DON'T THINK SO.
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:07.110
  • BUT SOMETIMES IN THOSE STORMS, WE LISTEN AND
  • 00:20:07.130 --> 00:20:10.280
  • HE GETS OUR ATTENTION.
  • 00:20:11.000 --> 00:20:13.060
  • AND SO WE'RE GOING TO THE BAHAMAS.
  • 00:20:13.080 --> 00:20:15.080
  • WE'RE GONNA DO OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD THERE FOR
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:18.020
  • THE CHILDREN OF THE BAHAMAS THIS YEAR.
  • 00:20:18.040 --> 00:20:20.020
  • WE'RE ALSO REBUILDING HOUSES.
  • 00:20:20.040 --> 00:20:22.000
  • WE'RE HELPING PEOPLE PUT TARPS BACK ON THEIR ROOFS
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:25.000
  • AND REROOFING THEIR HOMES, GETTING PEOPLE IN THE DRY.
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:28.010
  • A LOT OF WORK TO DO, AND WE'LL BE DOWN THERE FOR A
  • 00:20:28.030 --> 00:20:31.140
  • COUPLE OF YEARS, A LOT OF DEVASTATION.
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:33.220
  • - WELL, I THINK THAT IF SOMEBODY'S GOING THROUGH
  • 00:20:33.240 --> 00:20:36.150
  • THEIR OWN PERSONAL STORM TONIGHT, JUST MAKE SURE
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:41.120
  • JESUS IS ON THE BOAT WITH YOU.
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:43.180
  • - THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.030
  • - BECAUSE HE'S THE COMMANDER OF THE WIND AND
  • 00:20:45.050 --> 00:20:47.190
  • THE RAIN AND THE STORM IN YOUR LIFE, AND IF JESUS
  • 00:20:47.210 --> 00:20:51.030
  • CAN RELAX AND TAKE A NAP IN THE MIDST OF THE
  • 00:20:51.050 --> 00:20:54.060
  • STORM, MAYBE WE CAN TOO.
  • 00:20:54.080 --> 00:20:56.200
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:58.090
  • - THAT THOUGHT HAS HELPED ME THROUGH A
  • 00:20:58.110 --> 00:21:00.050
  • NUMBER OF STORMS.
  • 00:21:00.070 --> 00:21:01.240
  • LET THE STORM CLOUDS RAGE, LET THE BILLOWS ROLL.
  • 00:21:01.260 --> 00:21:06.210
  • I WILL KEEP THE PEACE OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:09.270
  • THAT WILL STILL MY SOUL.
  • 00:21:09.290 --> 00:21:12.120
  • - YEAH. AMEN.

  • BEING THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS IN THE BAHAMAS.
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:24.060
  • - [MALE] DORIAN WAS ONE OF THE WORST STORMS WE'VE SEEN,
  • 00:21:25.140 --> 00:21:27.160
  • ACTUALLY THE WORST WE'VE SEEN IN THIS
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:29.220
  • PART OF THE WORLD EVER.
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:31.260
  • AND THE PEOPLE OF THE BAHAMAS, WE'RE A STRONG PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:35.180
  • WE HAVE FACED HURRICANES FOR DECADES, BUT DORIAN
  • 00:21:35.200 --> 00:21:39.290
  • IS ONE OF THE FIRST ONES THAT'S TAKEN LIVES,
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:42.200
  • TAKEN PROPERTY, AND IT'S JUST AFFECTING US
  • 00:21:42.220 --> 00:21:45.220
  • TO THAT DEGREE.
  • 00:21:45.240 --> 00:21:47.250
  • - [FEMALE] A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES.
  • 00:21:47.270 --> 00:21:50.250
  • THEY WERE FLOODED OUT WITH THREE SURGES UP TO

  • 20 FEET, 23 FEET, AND CAUSE MASSIVE DAMAGES.
  • 00:21:54.180 --> 00:22:00.190
  • - UNFORTUNATELY, THE HOSPITAL, RAND MEMORIAL
  • 00:22:00.210 --> 00:22:03.090

  • HOUSEHOLDS THAT MOST NEEDED IT.
  • 00:23:35.040 --> 00:23:37.010
  • WE'VE ALSO DISTRIBUTED A LOT OF TARPS SO
  • 00:23:37.030 --> 00:23:39.120
  • PEOPLE COULD GET THAT OVER THEIR ROOFS
  • 00:23:39.140 --> 00:23:41.150

  • NO WAY TO RECOVER.
  • 00:24:06.050 --> 00:24:07.190
  • GOD HAS CALLED US AS SAMARITAN'S PURSE TO
  • 00:24:07.210 --> 00:24:09.090
  • RESPOND DURING THOSE STORMS, WHEN THERE'S A
  • 00:24:09.110 --> 00:24:11.040
  • CRISIS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AND THE BAHAMAS,
  • 00:24:11.060 --> 00:24:13.080
  • THESE ARE OUR NEIGHBORS.
  • 00:24:13.100 --> 00:24:14.270
  • WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE NOT ONLY PHYSICALLY BUT
  • 00:24:14.290 --> 00:24:17.050
  • SPIRITUALLY BECAUSE WE WANT CHRIST TO BE SEEN,
  • 00:24:17.070 --> 00:24:19.220
  • AND WE WANT TO BE THE HANDS AND
  • 00:24:19.240 --> 00:24:21.220
  • FEET OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:24:21.240 --> 00:24:24.210
  • - FRANKLIN, STORMS WILL COME IN OUR LIFE, WILL THEY NOT?
  • 00:24:27.070 --> 00:24:29.290
  • - THEY DO.
  • 00:24:30.010 --> 00:24:31.100
  • - AND THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT THE
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:33.160
  • SAMARITAN'S PURSE THAT I OBSERVE IS THAT THE
  • 00:24:33.180 --> 00:24:36.010
  • RELIEF EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES, MEDICAL
  • 00:24:36.030 --> 00:24:40.250
  • SUPPLIES AND ALL, EXPRESS GOD'S LOVE JUST IN A
  • 00:24:40.270 --> 00:24:45.210
  • TANGIBLE WAY, BUT EVEN MORE SO, YOU HAVE
  • 00:24:45.230 --> 00:24:49.130
  • CHAPLAINS WHO WORK WITH YOU AS WELL.
  • 00:24:49.150 --> 00:24:51.190
  • - WE DO.
  • 00:24:51.210 --> 00:24:53.020
  • - TALK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:24:53.040 --> 00:24:54.130
  • - ALL OF OUR TEAM ARE CHRISTIANS, AND I WANT
  • 00:24:54.150 --> 00:24:56.190
  • ALL OF OUR TEAM TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WHAT WE BELIEVE.
  • 00:24:56.210 --> 00:25:01.070
  • BUT WHEN WE'RE WORKING, IT'S HARD TO STOP YOUR
  • 00:25:01.090 --> 00:25:04.080
  • WORK TO TAKE CARE OF THE SPIRITUAL OR EMOTIONAL
  • 00:25:04.100 --> 00:25:08.250
  • NEEDS OF THE FAMILY YOU'RE HELPING BECAUSE
  • 00:25:08.270 --> 00:25:12.190
  • YOU CAN'T GET DISTRACTED AND DO TWO THINGS AT ONE
  • 00:25:12.210 --> 00:25:15.160
  • TIME. SO WE HAVE CHAPLAINS THAT WORK WITH OUR TEAMS
  • 00:25:15.180 --> 00:25:19.290
  • SO THE FAMILY THAT WE'RE HELPING, THAT IS
  • 00:25:20.010 --> 00:25:23.120
  • SUFFERING, THAT'S CRYING AND CONFUSED, WE'VE GOT A
  • 00:25:23.140 --> 00:25:27.050
  • CHAPLAIN OVER THERE TALKING TO THEM AND
  • 00:25:27.070 --> 00:25:28.290
  • PRAYING WITH THEM.
  • 00:25:29.010 --> 00:25:30.050
  • OUR TEAMS ARE THERE WORKING, MUDDING OUT
  • 00:25:30.070 --> 00:25:31.170
  • THEIR HOME, OR PUTTING A ROOF ON THE HOUSE, OR
  • 00:25:31.190 --> 00:25:33.020
  • WHATEVER WE NEED TO DO TO HELP THEM. BUT THESE
  • 00:25:33.040 --> 00:25:35.000
  • CHAPLAINS CAME OUT OF 9/11.
  • 00:25:35.020 --> 00:25:38.020
  • HERE IN NEW YORK, AFTER THE WORLD TRADE CENTER,
  • 00:25:38.040 --> 00:25:43.150
  • WHICH IS JUST A FEW BLOCKS FROM HERE, WHEN
  • 00:25:43.170 --> 00:25:45.110
  • IT CAME DOWN, THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH CHURCHES
  • 00:25:45.130 --> 00:25:48.270
  • IN NEW YORK CITY FOR THE FUNERALS.
  • 00:25:48.290 --> 00:25:52.010
  • THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH PASTORS OR CHAPLAINS TO
  • 00:25:52.030 --> 00:25:55.080
  • PRAY WITH PEOPLE, CONSOLE PEOPLE BECAUSE NOT ONLY
  • 00:25:55.100 --> 00:25:57.250
  • WAS THERE 2.000 PEOPLE THAT DIED IN THAT
  • 00:25:57.270 --> 00:26:00.080
  • BUILDING, BUT EACH ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE HAD
  • 00:26:00.100 --> 00:26:03.200
  • FAMILIES, EXTENDED FAMILIES, SO IT WAS
  • 00:26:03.220 --> 00:26:06.240
  • THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT WERE WANTING TO TALK TO
  • 00:26:06.260 --> 00:26:09.210
  • SOMEONE, WANTING TO PRAY WITH SOMEBODY, AND THERE
  • 00:26:09.230 --> 00:26:11.140
  • JUST WASN'T ENOUGH IN NEW YORK CAPACITY.
  • 00:26:11.160 --> 00:26:14.220
  • SO I STARTED LOOKING FOR PASTORS.
  • 00:26:14.240 --> 00:26:16.270
  • LET'S GO TO NEW YORK, WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?
  • 00:26:16.290 --> 00:26:19.270
  • WE'RE GONNA GO DOWN TO CHELSEA PIERS WHERE THEY
  • 00:26:19.290 --> 00:26:21.230
  • HAD THAT MAKESHIFT MEMORIAL.
  • 00:26:21.250 --> 00:26:23.170
  • WE'LL GO DOWN TO THE PILE, WE'LL GO TO THE
  • 00:26:23.190 --> 00:26:26.010
  • HOSPITALS WHERE PEOPLE ARE CONGREGATING LOOKING
  • 00:26:26.030 --> 00:26:28.080
  • FOR LOVED ONES, AND LET'S JUST GO PRAY WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:26:28.100 --> 00:26:31.110
  • SAY I'M A PASTOR FROM DENVER, OR A PASTOR FROM
  • 00:26:31.130 --> 00:26:34.050
  • TEXAS, CAN I PRAY WITH YOU?
  • 00:26:34.070 --> 00:26:36.120
  • THEY SAID OKAY, WE'LL DO THAT.
  • 00:26:36.140 --> 00:26:38.050
  • SO WE HAD ABOUT 100 PASTORS UP HERE JUST PRAYING.
  • 00:26:38.070 --> 00:26:41.150
  • BUT WE WENT DOWN TO THE PILE RIGHT OVER HERE,
  • 00:26:41.170 --> 00:26:43.260
  • "SORRY, YOU'RE NOT CREDENTIALED, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:26:43.280 --> 00:26:45.290
  • COME IN" BECAUSE WE WANTED TO PRAY WITH THE
  • 00:26:46.010 --> 00:26:47.200
  • FIRE FIGHTERS AND THE FIRST RESPONDERS.
  • 00:26:47.220 --> 00:26:49.240
  • COULDN'T DO IT. WE'RE NOT CREDENTIALED.
  • 00:26:49.260 --> 00:26:51.200
  • - YOU HAVE TO HAVE A NEW YORK LICENSE.
  • 00:26:51.220 --> 00:26:53.160
  • - WELL, HERE'S THE THING.
  • 00:26:53.180 --> 00:26:54.290
  • ONE OF OUR CHAPLAINS WAS AN FBI CHAPLAIN.
  • 00:26:55.010 --> 00:26:58.270
  • I HAD NO CLUE THE FBI HAD CHAPLAINS.
  • 00:26:58.290 --> 00:27:01.180
  • HE PULLS OUT A FBI BADGE, DOES THIS CREDENTIAL WORK?
  • 00:27:01.200 --> 00:27:06.000
  • OH, YES, YOU CAN COME RIGHT ON IN.
  • 00:27:06.020 --> 00:27:08.100
  • I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, I WANT ONE OF THOSE.
  • 00:27:08.120 --> 00:27:11.160
  • HOW DO WE GET CREDENTIALED?
  • 00:27:11.180 --> 00:27:13.010
  • WELL, WE FOUND OUT THAT YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:27:13.030 --> 00:27:14.180
  • HOMELAND SECURITY TRAINING, VARIOUS GOVERNMENT
  • 00:27:14.200 --> 00:27:19.030
  • AGENCIES. YOU HAD TO JUMP THROUGH THEIR HOOPS.
  • 00:27:19.050 --> 00:27:21.010
  • SO WE HAVE OVER 2.000 MEN AND WOMEN THAT HAVE
  • 00:27:21.030 --> 00:27:24.100
  • JUMPED THROUGH THE HOOPS THAT ARE NOW RECOGNIZED
  • 00:27:24.120 --> 00:27:27.240
  • OFFICIALLY IN ALL 50 STATES.
  • 00:27:27.260 --> 00:27:30.170
  • THEY CARRY A BADGE BUT THEY'VE TAKEN ALL THE
  • 00:27:30.190 --> 00:27:33.220
  • TRAINING, THE GRIEF COUNSELING, ALL THESE
  • 00:27:33.240 --> 00:27:35.130
  • THINGS THAT ARE REQUIRED SO THAT WHEN THERE'S A
  • 00:27:35.150 --> 00:27:37.280
  • CRISIS ANYWHERE, WE CAN HAVE CHAPLAINS ON THE
  • 00:27:38.000 --> 00:27:41.270
  • SCENE WITHIN A MATTER OF A COUPLE OF HOURS.
  • 00:27:41.290 --> 00:27:43.280
  • COUPLE YEARS AGO IN ROSBURG, WASHINGTON
  • 00:27:44.000 --> 00:27:46.010
  • THERE WAS A SHOOTING AT A SCHOOL.
  • 00:27:46.030 --> 00:27:48.110
  • WITHIN TWO HOURS WE HAD A CHAPLAIN THERE.
  • 00:27:48.130 --> 00:27:50.210
  • SAN BERNARDINO THERE WAS A SHOOTING.
  • 00:27:50.230 --> 00:27:52.180
  • ONE HOUR WE HAD A CHAPLAIN THERE AND HIS WIFE.
  • 00:27:52.200 --> 00:27:56.220
  • AND THE FIRST RESPONDERS, THE POLICE THANK YOU FOR
  • 00:27:56.240 --> 00:28:00.260
  • COMING. WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
  • 00:28:00.280 --> 00:28:03.010
  • THE FAMILY'S OVER HERE, PLEASE COME TALK TO THE
  • 00:28:03.030 --> 00:28:05.170
  • FAMILY. SO THE CHAPLAINS ARE INTEGRATED INTO
  • 00:28:05.190 --> 00:28:09.260
  • EVERYTHING WE DO AT SAMARITAN'S PURSE.
  • 00:28:09.280 --> 00:28:11.150
  • SO IN THE BAHAMAS, THE FIELD HOSPITAL, THERE'S A
  • 00:28:11.170 --> 00:28:15.130
  • WAITING TENT, A TENT WHERE YOU JUST WAIT
  • 00:28:15.150 --> 00:28:17.130
  • BEFORE YOU'RE PROCESSED TO GO.
  • 00:28:17.150 --> 00:28:19.270
  • CHAPLAINS TALKING TO THE PATIENTS.
  • 00:28:19.290 --> 00:28:23.020
  • AS WE ADMIT PEOPLE, AND THEY'RE IN THE HOSPITAL,
  • 00:28:23.040 --> 00:28:26.210
  • CHAPLAINS COME BY, WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
  • 00:28:26.230 --> 00:28:28.130
  • TELL ME YOUR STORY.
  • 00:28:28.150 --> 00:28:31.150
  • BEGIN TO TALK TO THEM, PRAY WITH THEM AND SHARE
  • 00:28:31.170 --> 00:28:35.170
  • THE HOPE THAT WE HAVE IN JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:28:35.190 --> 00:28:38.010
  • OUR CHAPLAINS EVERY DAY ARE LEADING PEOPLE TO JESUS.
  • 00:28:38.030 --> 00:28:42.030
  • BUT IT STARTED RIGHT HERE IN NEW YORK CITY
  • 00:28:42.050 --> 00:28:43.260
  • AS A RESULT OF 9/11.
  • 00:28:43.280 --> 00:28:45.210
  • - THAT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:28:45.230 --> 00:28:47.210
  • THAT IS WONDERFUL THAT YOU FOUND A WAY TO GET
  • 00:28:47.230 --> 00:28:51.150
  • PAST THE OBSTACLE THAT WAS STANDING IN YOUR WAY
  • 00:28:51.170 --> 00:28:55.130
  • OF MINISTERING TO THESE PEOPLE.
  • 00:28:55.150 --> 00:28:56.290
  • - IN LIFE, I FEEL AS CHRISTIANS WE LEARN.
  • 00:28:57.010 --> 00:29:00.070
  • WE'RE ON A JOURNEY, WE'RE PILGRIMS, WE'RE LEARNING
  • 00:29:00.090 --> 00:29:02.280
  • AS WE GO, BUT IF WE LEARN AND DON'T DO ANYTHING
  • 00:29:03.000 --> 00:29:05.210
  • ABOUT IT, THEN WE'RE JUST GONNA REPEAT THE SAME
  • 00:29:05.230 --> 00:29:07.210
  • MISTAKE. SO IN 9/11 WHEN THEY SAID SORRY YOU'RE
  • 00:29:07.230 --> 00:29:10.130
  • NOT CREDENTIALED, A BELL GOES OFF IN MY HEAD.
  • 00:29:10.150 --> 00:29:13.000
  • CREDENTIALS? HOW DO YOU GET CREDENTIALED?
  • 00:29:13.020 --> 00:29:16.170
  • AND WE BEGAN TO INVESTIGATE.
  • 00:29:16.190 --> 00:29:18.030
  • WHAT IS HOMELAND SECURITY?
  • 00:29:18.050 --> 00:29:20.050
  • WHAT IS THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE?
  • 00:29:20.070 --> 00:29:22.020
  • WHAT DO THESE PEOPLE REQUIRE TO BE CREDENTIALED?
  • 00:29:22.040 --> 00:29:25.230
  • SO ALL OF OUR CHAPLAINS THAT WE HAVE OVER 2.000
  • 00:29:25.250 --> 00:29:28.170
  • AGAIN, AND SOME OF THEM ARE IN CANADA, FRENCH
  • 00:29:28.190 --> 00:29:31.030
  • SPEAKING CANADIANS, SO THE SHOOTING IN PARIS WE
  • 00:29:31.050 --> 00:29:35.080
  • PUT ON A PLANE THE NEXT DAY A COUPLE OF FRENCH
  • 00:29:35.100 --> 00:29:38.150
  • SPEAKING CANADIANS THAT ARE CREDENTIALED
  • 00:29:38.170 --> 00:29:41.160
  • AND GO TO PARIS.
  • 00:29:41.180 --> 00:29:43.210
  • SO WE'RE ABLE TO MINISTER NOT JUST IN THE UNITED
  • 00:29:43.230 --> 00:29:47.150
  • STATES BUT CANADA AND EUROPE AS WELL.
  • 00:29:47.170 --> 00:29:49.200
  • - AS INTERNATIONAL HELP AS NEEDED.
  • 00:29:49.220 --> 00:29:52.250
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:29:52.270 --> 00:29:54.020
  • - YOU PROVIDE IT.
  • 00:29:54.040 --> 00:29:55.140
  • - THAT'S WHAT GOD PROVIDES.
  • 00:29:55.160 --> 00:29:56.250
  • - IT'S A WONDERFUL WORK YOU'RE DOING.
  • 00:29:56.270 --> 00:29:58.040
  • IT'S JUST TERRIFIC.
  • 00:29:58.060 --> 00:30:00.070
  • LET ME ASK YOU IF YOU DON'T MIND MY SWITCHING
  • 00:30:00.090 --> 00:30:03.160
  • GEARS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DECISION AMERICA AND THE
  • 00:30:03.180 --> 00:30:06.150
  • TOUR THAT YOU FOLK ARE DOING AROUND THE NATION.
  • 00:30:06.170 --> 00:30:11.170
  • OBVIOUSLY, I'LL NEVER FORGET BILLY GRAHAM
  • 00:30:11.190 --> 00:30:17.120
  • TALKING ABOUT THE HOUR OF DECISION.
  • 00:30:17.140 --> 00:30:20.200
  • WHAT IS THE DECISION AMERICA TOUR ABOUT IN THE
  • 00:30:20.220 --> 00:30:24.070
  • NORTHEAST AND IN NORTH CAROLINA.
  • 00:30:24.090 --> 00:30:26.200
  • - WELL, IT STARTED IN 2016 WHEN WE WENT TO ALL
  • 00:30:26.220 --> 00:30:29.030
  • 50 STATE CAPITALS TO HOLD PRAYER RALLIES, AND I
  • 00:30:29.050 --> 00:30:34.060
  • THINK AT THAT TIME OUR NATION, THE CHURCH
  • 00:30:34.080 --> 00:30:38.160
  • UNDERSTOOD THAT OUR NATION WAS IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:30:38.180 --> 00:30:40.280
  • AND THEY CAME TO THE CAPITOL STEPS TO PRAY.
  • 00:30:41.000 --> 00:30:44.010
  • THEY DIDN'T COME TO PRAY WITH ME, THEY CAME TO
  • 00:30:44.030 --> 00:30:46.220
  • PRAY, AND I JUST HAPPENED TO BE THERE.
  • 00:30:46.240 --> 00:30:50.140
  • - I HEAR YOU.
  • 00:30:50.160 --> 00:30:52.070
  • - BUT WE SAW ALL ACROSS IN EVERY STATE THOUSANDS
  • 00:30:52.090 --> 00:30:54.230
  • AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE COMING TO PRAY FOR A
  • 00:30:54.250 --> 00:30:57.250
  • NATION, AND WE DECIDED AFTER 2016, LET'S FOCUS,
  • 00:30:57.270 --> 00:31:02.040
  • AND WE WENT UP THE WEST COAST FROM SOUTHERN
  • 00:31:02.060 --> 00:31:05.180
  • CALIFORNIA ALL THE WAY TO OREGON AND WASHINGTON
  • 00:31:05.200 --> 00:31:08.140
  • STATE, THEN WE DID TEXAS AND TENNESSEE, AND THIS
  • 00:31:08.160 --> 00:31:12.240
  • PAST YEAR WE WENT THROUGH THE NORTHEAST.
  • 00:31:12.260 --> 00:31:14.130
  • THE NORTHEAST IS SOME OF THE HARDEST GROUND
  • 00:31:14.150 --> 00:31:18.100
  • SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:31:18.120 --> 00:31:20.150
  • IS THE NORTHEAST.
  • 00:31:20.170 --> 00:31:22.040
  • AND WE WENT THROUGH ALL THE NORTHEASTERN STATES,
  • 00:31:22.060 --> 00:31:26.090
  • CITY BY CITY PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:31:26.110 --> 00:31:29.070
  • JUST TAKE ONE GROUP WITH ME, AND I GET UP AND GIVE
  • 00:31:29.090 --> 00:31:34.010
  • A BIBLE MESSAGE, LIKE AN EVANGELISTIC MESSAGE,
  • 00:31:34.030 --> 00:31:38.270
  • GIVE AN INVITATION.
  • 00:31:38.290 --> 00:31:40.180
  • AND SOMETIMES THERE'S NO ROOM FOR PEOPLE TO COME
  • 00:31:40.200 --> 00:31:44.110
  • FORWARD, JUST HAVE TO ASK THEM TO STAND.
  • 00:31:44.130 --> 00:31:46.120
  • AND THERE WILL BE PEOPLE STANDING, HUNDREDS AND
  • 00:31:46.140 --> 00:31:48.000
  • HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE STANDING.
  • 00:31:48.020 --> 00:31:49.060
  • WE HAVE TRAINED COUNSELORS SO FOR THOSE
  • 00:31:49.080 --> 00:31:50.290
  • THAT ARE STANDING, WE'LL GIVE THEM SOME LITERATURE
  • 00:31:51.010 --> 00:31:54.060
  • AND TRY TO GIVE THEM A TESTAMENT.
  • 00:31:54.080 --> 00:31:56.280
  • WE EVEN HAVE A LINK WHERE IF SOMETIMES PEOPLE WON'T
  • 00:31:57.000 --> 00:32:01.080
  • STAND FOR WHATEVER REASON, THEY'RE AFRAID,
  • 00:32:01.100 --> 00:32:04.290
  • EMBARRASSED, SO THEY CAN TEXT ME ON MY PHONE AND
  • 00:32:05.010 --> 00:32:12.060
  • IT GOES TO THE BILLY GRAHAM ASSOCIATION, AND
  • 00:32:12.080 --> 00:32:15.160
  • THERE'S A NUMBER THAT THEY TEXT AND THEY TEXT
  • 00:32:15.180 --> 00:32:17.230
  • THE WORD "DECISION" TO A NUMBER, AND THEN I'LL
  • 00:32:17.250 --> 00:32:20.020
  • SEND THEM ELECTRONICALLY THE SAME BOOK THAT I
  • 00:32:20.040 --> 00:32:23.070
  • WOULD GIVE THEM IN PERSON, BUT BY THE TIME
  • 00:32:23.090 --> 00:32:25.190
  • THEY GET BACK TO THEIR CAR, IT'S ALREADY
  • 00:32:25.210 --> 00:32:27.090
  • ON THEIR PHONE.
  • 00:32:27.110 --> 00:32:29.050
  • SO WE DO THAT, AND WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:32:29.070 --> 00:32:32.030
  • WHO WILL TEXT YOU WHO ARE AFRAID FOR WHATEVER
  • 00:32:32.050 --> 00:32:34.240
  • REASON FOR STANDING, BUT THEY'VE INVITED CHRIST
  • 00:32:34.260 --> 00:32:37.170
  • INTO THEIR HEART.
  • 00:32:37.190 --> 00:32:38.230
  • THEY MADE A DECISION FOR JESUS.
  • 00:32:38.250 --> 00:32:40.270
  • - WELL, THEY'VE TOLD ME THAT BY OCTOBER
  • 00:32:40.290 --> 00:32:45.150

  • THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE CAME, AND THEY CAME TO HEAR THE
  • 00:33:16.140 --> 00:33:22.170

  • GO TO BIG CITIES.
  • 00:33:32.080 --> 00:33:33.240
  • I FIND THAT YOU GO TO SMALLER COMMUNITIES,
  • 00:33:33.260 --> 00:33:36.210
  • PEOPLE DON'T GO TO THE SMALLER COMMUNITIES, AND
  • 00:33:36.230 --> 00:33:40.200
  • AS A RESULT, THE SMALLER COMMUNITIES JUST COME.
  • 00:33:40.220 --> 00:33:46.000
  • AND THEY POUR OUT, AND THEY'RE SO EXCITED THAT
  • 00:33:46.020 --> 00:33:49.200

  • CERTAINLY WHEN THEY HEAR THE NAME AND THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:34:14.150 --> 00:34:18.160
  • REACHING OUT TO THE LITTLE GUY, THEY RESPOND,
  • 00:34:18.180 --> 00:34:23.050
  • AND THEY RESPOND NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE NAME OR
  • 00:34:23.070 --> 00:34:26.060
  • WHAT THEY EXPECT, BUT THEY RESPOND BECAUSE THE
  • 00:34:26.080 --> 00:34:29.010

  • DECISION AMERICA TOUR WILL BE IN MY HOME STATE,
  • 00:37:24.160 --> 00:37:28.070
  • MY CURRENT HOME STATE OF FLORIDA.
  • 00:37:28.090 --> 00:37:31.050
  • MY WIFE AND I HAVE MOVED DOWN TO CENTRAL FLORIDA
  • 00:37:31.070 --> 00:37:34.040
  • ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, AND WE JUST LOVE IT
  • 00:37:34.060 --> 00:37:37.080
  • DOWN THERE, ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T STAYED
  • 00:37:37.100 --> 00:37:39.110
  • THERE VERY LONG.
  • 00:37:39.130 --> 00:37:40.210
  • I KEEP COMING TO NEW YORK TO WORK LIKE THIS, BUT
  • 00:37:40.230 --> 00:37:45.090
  • IT'S GOD GIVING ME THE MOTION AND THE MOVEMENT.
  • 00:37:45.110 --> 00:37:48.190
  • BUT I VISITED A NUMBER OF CHURCHES DOWN THERE, AND
  • 00:37:48.210 --> 00:37:51.150
  • THEY'RE VERY CHRIST CENTERED AND BIBLE BASED,
  • 00:37:51.170 --> 00:37:57.230
  • SO I WOULD IMAGINE YOU'RE GOING TO GET A LOT OF FOLKS
  • 00:37:57.250 --> 00:38:01.150
  • COMING OUT FOR THIS TOUR DOWN IN FLORIDA.
  • 00:38:01.170 --> 00:38:04.040
  • - WE'RE GOING TO SMALLER CITIES, PLACES LIKE
  • 00:38:04.060 --> 00:38:06.140
  • PLANT CITY, KEY WEST.
  • 00:38:06.160 --> 00:38:10.050
  • - KEY WEST?
  • 00:38:10.070 --> 00:38:12.060
  • - FT. MYERS. WE'RE NOT GOING TO THE BIG CITIES BUT TO
  • 00:38:12.080 --> 00:38:16.100
  • THE SMALLER CITIES.
  • 00:38:16.120 --> 00:38:18.140
  • AND AGAIN, IT'S JUST TAKING THE GOSPEL AND INVITING
  • 00:38:18.160 --> 00:38:21.150
  • PEOPLE TO COME; VERY LITTLE ENTERTAINMENT.
  • 00:38:21.170 --> 00:38:25.050
  • THE WHOLE PROGRAM LASTS JUST A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR.
  • 00:38:25.070 --> 00:38:27.180
  • SO THERE'S NO REASON -- PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:38:27.200 --> 00:38:31.280
  • OH, THAT'S TOO MUCH. I CAN'T GET THERE.
  • 00:38:32.000 --> 00:38:33.220
  • COME ON, IT'S QUICK, AND IT'S GOING TO BE FUN.
  • 00:38:33.240 --> 00:38:35.260
  • IT'S FREE, WE DON'T CHARGE ANYTHING, NO ADMISSION.
  • 00:38:35.280 --> 00:38:38.210
  • WE DON'T PASS AN OFFERING BUCKET.
  • 00:38:38.230 --> 00:38:40.170
  • WE DON'T ASK FOR A DIME, BUT GOD HAS GIVEN IT THROUGH OUR
  • 00:38:40.190 --> 00:38:44.280
  • PARTNERS AND THROUGH THOSE THAT SUPPORT SAMARITAN'S
  • 00:38:45.000 --> 00:38:47.200
  • PURSE AND THE BILLY GRAHAM ASSOCIATION WITH THE
  • 00:38:47.220 --> 00:38:50.120
  • FUNDS TO DO THIS.
  • 00:38:50.140 --> 00:38:52.260
  • AND SO WE JUST TAKE THAT AND USE IT FOR EVANGELISM.
  • 00:38:52.280 --> 00:38:55.070
  • THEY'VE GIVEN IT FOR EVANGELISM, AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:38:55.090 --> 00:38:57.030
  • WE DO IS EVANGELISM.
  • 00:38:57.050 --> 00:38:58.170
  • SO FLORIDA, IT'S GOING TO BE IN JANUARY.
  • 00:38:58.190 --> 00:39:01.270
  • A LOT OF SNOW BIRDS ARE DOWN THERE, SO THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:39:01.290 --> 00:39:03.290
  • WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
  • 00:39:04.010 --> 00:39:05.190
  • YOU'VE GOT TO COME TO ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:39:05.210 --> 00:39:06.280
  • I'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU COME.
  • 00:39:07.000 --> 00:39:08.070
  • - I WOULD LOVE TO.
  • 00:39:08.090 --> 00:39:09.240
  • YOU PLAN TO DO THIS TOUR THROUGH OUT THE NATION?
  • 00:39:09.260 --> 00:39:11.150
  • - WE'VE ALREADY GONE TO ALL 50 STATE CAPITOLS, SO NOW
  • 00:39:11.170 --> 00:39:15.260
  • WE'RE FOCUSING ON REGIONS OF THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:39:15.280 --> 00:39:19.150
  • I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT.
  • 00:39:19.170 --> 00:39:21.040
  • AND THEN LATER IN THE YEAR, I'M GOING TO GO TO
  • 00:39:21.060 --> 00:39:23.100
  • PENNSYLVANIA.
  • 00:39:23.120 --> 00:39:24.260
  • I WANT TO GO TO MICHIGAN.
  • 00:39:24.280 --> 00:39:26.130
  • I WANT TO GO TO WHAT POLITICALLY THEY CALL SOME
  • 00:39:26.150 --> 00:39:28.170
  • OF THE SWING STATES.
  • 00:39:28.190 --> 00:39:30.000
  • - YES.
  • 00:39:30.020 --> 00:39:31.220
  • - WE'RE NOT GOING THERE FOR POLITICAL REASONS.
  • 00:39:31.240 --> 00:39:33.060
  • - PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:39:33.080 --> 00:39:34.270
  • - BUT THESE ARE STATES WHERE THE GOSPEL IS NOT PREACHED.
  • 00:39:34.290 --> 00:39:36.240
  • TAKE WISCONSIN.
  • 00:39:36.260 --> 00:39:40.110
  • THERE ARE SOME GREAT CHURCHES UP THERE,
  • 00:39:40.130 --> 00:39:42.070
  • BUT THEY STRUGGLE.
  • 00:39:42.090 --> 00:39:43.250
  • I MEAN, IT'S A SECULAR WORLD UP THERE, AND I WANT TO GO
  • 00:39:43.270 --> 00:39:47.280
  • TO MINNESOTA AND PLACES AND GO TO SMALLER CITIES,
  • 00:39:48.000 --> 00:39:50.290
  • SMALLER TOWNS, AND WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT AGAIN
  • 00:39:51.010 --> 00:39:53.160
  • LATER IN THE YEAR.
  • 00:39:53.180 --> 00:39:55.100

  • - WE ARE, THE PLANET SHAKERS ARE OUT OF
  • 00:40:08.230 --> 00:40:10.120
  • AUSTRALIA, AND I'M TELLING YOU, THEY SHAKE
  • 00:40:10.140 --> 00:40:12.130
  • THE PLACE UP.
  • 00:40:12.150 --> 00:40:14.200
  • WE'RE GOING TO START UP IN THE VERY NORTHERN PART, UP
  • 00:40:14.220 --> 00:40:18.110
  • IN SCOTLAND, AND WE'RE GOING TO WORK OUR WAY DOWN ALL THE
  • 00:40:18.130 --> 00:40:21.010
  • WAY TO THE SOUTH TO WALES.
  • 00:40:21.030 --> 00:40:22.280
  • THEN WE GO BACK IN OCTOBER, AND WE'RE GOING TO FINISH IN
  • 00:40:23.000 --> 00:40:25.040
  • LONDON AT THE O2 CENTER IN OCTOBER.
  • 00:40:25.060 --> 00:40:29.050
  • SO WE'RE GOING TO COVER -- IT'S JUST A TOUR TO, AGAIN,
  • 00:40:29.070 --> 00:40:32.180
  • GO TO THE UNITED KINGDOM AND PREACH CHRIST.
  • 00:40:32.200 --> 00:40:34.230
  • THIS IS VERY DIFFICULT GROUND, SO PRAY FOR US
  • 00:40:34.250 --> 00:40:39.060
  • AS WE GO TO THE UK. A LOT OF OPPOSITION.
  • 00:40:39.080 --> 00:40:42.160
  • THERE'S A LOT OF APATHY, EVEN AMONG SOME
  • 00:40:42.180 --> 00:40:44.230
  • OF THE CHURCHES.
  • 00:40:44.250 --> 00:40:46.170
  • THEY'VE SUCCUMB TO THE SECULARISTS.
  • 00:40:46.190 --> 00:40:50.240
  • - THEY'VE GIVEN UP.
  • 00:40:50.260 --> 00:40:52.120
  • - AND THEY'VE JUST QUIT, AND I WANT TO ENCOURAGE THEM
  • 00:40:52.140 --> 00:40:54.240
  • TO, NO, WE DON'T QUIT, WE FIGHT ON.
  • 00:40:54.260 --> 00:40:56.290
  • WHEN I SAY FIGHT ON, IT IS A BATTLE.
  • 00:40:57.010 --> 00:41:01.050
  • IT'S A SPIRITUAL BATTLE WE'RE IN, AND WE DON'T QUIT
  • 00:41:01.070 --> 00:41:04.190
  • BECAUSE SOULS ARE AT STAKE HERE.
  • 00:41:04.210 --> 00:41:06.250
  • IT'S HEAVEN AND HELL, AND WHEN WE GIVE AN INVITATION
  • 00:41:06.270 --> 00:41:10.040
  • AND A PERSON STANDS UP TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO CHRIST,
  • 00:41:10.060 --> 00:41:13.090
  • THAT'S ONE MORE SOUL THAT IS SAVED FROM HELL, AND THAT'S
  • 00:41:13.110 --> 00:41:17.060
  • WHAT WE'RE HERE TO DO.
  • 00:41:17.080 --> 00:41:18.230
  • I DON'T SAVE ANYBODY.
  • 00:41:18.250 --> 00:41:20.210
  • IT'S GOD THAT HE SAVES, BUT HE USES THE GOSPEL, AND THE
  • 00:41:20.230 --> 00:41:23.190
  • GOSPEL IS -- A LOT OF PEOPLE THEY SAY, WELL, HOW DID
  • 00:41:23.210 --> 00:41:27.240
  • BILLY GRAHAM DO IT?
  • 00:41:27.260 --> 00:41:29.150
  • LISTEN, BILLY GRAHAM JUST PREACHED THE GOSPEL, AND
  • 00:41:29.170 --> 00:41:31.010
  • WHAT'S THE GOSPEL?
  • 00:41:31.030 --> 00:41:32.210
  • THAT GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY
  • 00:41:32.230 --> 00:41:35.110
  • BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH HIM SHOULD NOT
  • 00:41:35.130 --> 00:41:37.150
  • PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:41:37.170 --> 00:41:40.050
  • WE'RE UNDER A DEATH SENTENCE FROM GOD BECAUSE WE'VE ALL
  • 00:41:40.070 --> 00:41:42.260
  • SINNED, WE'VE ALL COME SHORT OF GOD'S GLORY, THAT THE
  • 00:41:42.280 --> 00:41:45.130
  • PENALTY OF SIN IS DEATH.
  • 00:41:45.150 --> 00:41:47.150
  • WE'RE UNDER A DEATH SENTENCE, BUT GOD SO LOVED
  • 00:41:47.170 --> 00:41:52.200
  • THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT
  • 00:41:52.220 --> 00:41:56.040
  • WHOSOEVER BELIEVED IN HIM SHOULDN'T PERISH BUT
  • 00:41:56.060 --> 00:41:58.170
  • HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:41:58.190 --> 00:42:00.220
  • JESUS CHRIST TOOK OUR SINS TO THE CROSS.
  • 00:42:00.240 --> 00:42:02.180
  • WHEN HE HUNG ON THAT CROSS, GOD LAID ON HIM YOUR SIN, MY
  • 00:42:02.200 --> 00:42:05.120
  • SINS, THE SINS PAST AND THE SINS PRESENT
  • 00:42:05.140 --> 00:42:08.130
  • AND THE SINS FUTURE.
  • 00:42:08.150 --> 00:42:10.120
  • JESUS CHRIST DIED, AND THERE WAS ENOUGH BLOOD THAT CAME
  • 00:42:10.140 --> 00:42:13.000
  • DOWN THAT CROSS, THAT FLOWED OUT OF HIS VEINS TO SAVE AND
  • 00:42:13.020 --> 00:42:15.130
  • YOU ME AND EVERY HUMAN BEING THAT IS WILLING TO CALL ON
  • 00:42:15.150 --> 00:42:18.260
  • THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND TO PUT THEIR
  • 00:42:18.280 --> 00:42:21.150
  • FAITH AND TRUST IN HIM.
  • 00:42:21.170 --> 00:42:23.050
  • JESUS DIED ON THAT CROSS, BUT GOD RAISED HIM TO LIFE.
  • 00:42:23.070 --> 00:42:26.210
  • HE'S NOT DEAD, HE'S ALIVE, AND HE'LL COME INTO
  • 00:42:26.230 --> 00:42:28.210
  • EACH AND EVERY HEART.
  • 00:42:28.230 --> 00:42:30.070
  • NOW, THIS IS THE GOSPEL, AND THERE'S POWER IN IT.
  • 00:42:30.090 --> 00:42:32.230
  • PAUL SAID, "I'M NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL FOR IT'S THE
  • 00:42:32.250 --> 00:42:35.060
  • POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES.
  • 00:42:35.080 --> 00:42:37.200
  • TO THE JEW FIRST BUT ALSO TO THE GREEK."
  • 00:42:37.220 --> 00:42:40.190
  • WE'RE THE GREEKS.
  • 00:42:40.210 --> 00:42:41.270
  • - YES. - DID YOU KNOW WE'RE GREEKS?
  • 00:42:41.290 --> 00:42:43.140
  • - I READ IT, YEAH.
  • 00:42:43.160 --> 00:42:45.210
  • I CLAIM IT. I CLAIM THOSE PROMISES.
  • 00:42:45.230 --> 00:42:48.110
  • I CLAIMED IT LONG AGO, BUT I CLAIM IT EVERY DAY.
  • 00:42:48.130 --> 00:42:51.170
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:42:51.190 --> 00:42:53.140
  • - AND OH, MY GOODNESS, DO I KNOW, ESPECIALLY IF I
  • 00:42:53.160 --> 00:42:55.240
  • STUMBLE ALONG THE WAY, I REMIND MYSELF JESUS DIED
  • 00:42:55.260 --> 00:43:00.100
  • FOR THE SIN I MIGHT COMMIT TOMORROW.
  • 00:43:00.120 --> 00:43:02.150
  • - YEAH, HE DIED FOR US.
  • 00:43:02.170 --> 00:43:04.110
  • - NOT THAT I'M TRYING TO, BUT IF, BY CHANCE, I STUMBLE
  • 00:43:04.130 --> 00:43:07.270
  • TOMORROW, MY PRICE HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID.
  • 00:43:07.290 --> 00:43:12.180
  • - YEAH, IT'S BEEN PAID IN FULL.
  • 00:43:12.200 --> 00:43:14.110
  • - LET'S TAKE A MOMENT AND TALK A LOOK AT THE
  • 00:43:14.130 --> 00:43:17.040
  • PLANNED GRAHAM TOUR UK.
  • 00:43:17.060 --> 00:43:20.080
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:43:20.100 --> 00:43:31.260
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:43:31.260 --> 00:43:39.140
  • - I WANT YOU TO KNOW TONIGHT THAT GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:43:39.160 --> 00:43:42.100
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:43:42.120 --> 00:43:55.240
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:43:55.240 --> 00:44:03.140
  • - I WANT YOU TO KNOW TONIGHT THAT YOU CAN HAVE A
  • 00:44:03.160 --> 00:44:05.200
  • NEW BEGINNING TONIGHT.
  • 00:44:05.220 --> 00:44:08.100
  • ALL OF US HAVE A VACUUM, AN EMPTINESS THAT ONLY GOD
  • 00:44:08.120 --> 00:44:11.060
  • CAN FILL HIMSELF.
  • 00:44:11.080 --> 00:44:13.190
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:44:13.210 --> 00:44:23.240
  • - WE'VE GOT MORE OPPORTUNITY TODAY THAN WE'VE
  • 00:44:23.260 --> 00:44:26.010
  • EVER HAD TO MAKE THE IMPACT OF CHRIST FELT IN EVERY
  • 00:44:26.030 --> 00:44:28.180
  • PHASE OF LIFE.
  • 00:44:28.200 --> 00:44:32.010
  • - THAT TOUR IN THE UK IS GOING TO BE PHENOMENAL.
  • 00:44:37.270 --> 00:44:42.110
  • GOD IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING THROUGH JESUS CHRIST IN THE
  • 00:44:42.130 --> 00:44:45.140
  • LIVES OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:44:45.160 --> 00:44:47.200
  • - WE WOULD APPRECIATE PEOPLE PRAYING FOR
  • 00:44:47.220 --> 00:44:49.200
  • US AS WE GO. THERE'S A LOTS OF OPPOSITION.
  • 00:44:49.220 --> 00:44:53.240
  • THE DEVIL DOESN'T WANT US TO COME, OF COURSE.
  • 00:44:53.260 --> 00:44:57.200
  • SO THERE'S OPPOSITION, BUT GOD SEEMS TO TAKE THAT
  • 00:44:57.220 --> 00:45:02.150
  • OPPOSITION AND USE THAT TO GET THE WORD OUT.
  • 00:45:02.170 --> 00:45:06.180
  • AND SO PEOPLE WILL END UP COMING BECAUSE THEY'VE HEARD
  • 00:45:06.200 --> 00:45:08.280
  • A NEGATIVE STORY.
  • 00:45:09.000 --> 00:45:11.000
  • WELL, I WONDER WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:45:11.020 --> 00:45:12.220
  • I THINK I'LL GO CHECK OUT THAT AMERICAN THAT
  • 00:45:12.240 --> 00:45:14.150
  • EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:45:14.170 --> 00:45:16.130
  • - THE DEVIL MEANT IT FOR EVIL, BUT GOD TURNED IT
  • 00:45:16.150 --> 00:45:18.160
  • AROUND FOR GOOD.
  • 00:45:18.180 --> 00:45:20.180
  • - YES, SIR, HE DOES, ALWAYS DOES.
  • 00:45:20.200 --> 00:45:22.240
  • - YOUR CAMBODIA FESTIVAL IN DECEMBER OF THIS -- IS THAT
  • 00:45:22.260 --> 00:45:25.030
  • THIS YEAR?
  • 00:45:25.050 --> 00:45:26.220
  • - IT'S COMING UP IN JUST A FEW WEEKS, YEAH.
  • 00:45:26.240 --> 00:45:28.180
  • - TALK TO US ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:45:28.200 --> 00:45:30.100
  • WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO IN CAMBODIA?
  • 00:45:30.120 --> 00:45:32.120
  • - SAMARITAN'S PURSE, WE'VE WORKED IN CAMBODIA FOR
  • 00:45:32.140 --> 00:45:34.030
  • YEARS, HAVE AN OFFICE IN CAMBODIA.
  • 00:45:34.050 --> 00:45:37.180
  • WE WORK IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING UP ON THE THAI BORDER, A
  • 00:45:37.200 --> 00:45:42.150
  • TERRIBLE PROBLEM WITH THIS.
  • 00:45:42.170 --> 00:45:45.030
  • AND WE HAVE BEEN WORKING THERE JUST FOR A YEAR.
  • 00:45:45.050 --> 00:45:48.090
  • AND ALSO I'VE GOT AGRICULTURAL PROJECTS AND SO
  • 00:45:48.110 --> 00:45:50.080
  • FORTH WORKING WITH THE CHURCHES TRYING TO
  • 00:45:50.100 --> 00:45:51.270
  • STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:45:51.290 --> 00:45:53.170
  • THE CHURCHES HAVE ASKED, WOULD THE BILLY GRAHAM
  • 00:45:53.190 --> 00:45:55.160
  • EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION WITH FRANKLIN COME, AND
  • 00:45:55.180 --> 00:45:58.100
  • WOULD HE PREACH PHNOM PENH?
  • 00:45:58.120 --> 00:46:01.230
  • WOULD HE TAKE A COUPLE OF NIGHTS AND PREACH AND GIVE
  • 00:46:01.250 --> 00:46:04.220
  • THE GOSPEL IN A FORMAL WAY AND INVITE PEOPLE TO PUT
  • 00:46:04.240 --> 00:46:08.220
  • THEIR FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD'S SON.
  • 00:46:08.240 --> 00:46:10.270
  • SO WE HAVE WORKED ON THIS FOR SEVERAL YEARS, HAD TO
  • 00:46:10.290 --> 00:46:13.250
  • DELAY IT ONCE BECAUSE OF ELECTIONS AND THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:46:13.270 --> 00:46:17.080
  • WAS AFRAID OF HAVING OUR BENT THERE AT THE SAME TIME
  • 00:46:17.100 --> 00:46:22.030
  • THEY WERE HAVING ELECTIONS BECAUSE FOR WHATEVER REASON.
  • 00:46:22.050 --> 00:46:25.210
  • BUT THIS IS THE TIME, AND THEY'VE GIVEN US THE
  • 00:46:25.230 --> 00:46:28.100
  • PERMISSION TO COME, AND SO RIGHT AFTER THANKSGIVING,
  • 00:46:28.120 --> 00:46:31.130
  • I'M KISSING MY WIFE GOODBYE AND HEADING TO CAMBODIA.
  • 00:46:31.150 --> 00:46:36.030
  • - OBVIOUSLY, THOSE OF US WHO WERE AROUND DURING THE
  • 00:46:36.050 --> 00:46:40.140
  • VIETNAMESE WAR HEARD THE NAME PHNOM PENH, AND YES, A
  • 00:46:40.160 --> 00:46:46.070
  • LOT OF TIME HAS PASSED BY.
  • 00:46:46.090 --> 00:46:48.160
  • IN FACT, OH, MY GOODNESS, 40 OR 50 YEARS, AND THINGS HAVE
  • 00:46:48.180 --> 00:46:53.250
  • CHANGED, TIMES HAVE CHANGED.
  • 00:46:53.270 --> 00:46:56.190
  • BUT I'M SURE THERE ARE THOSE KINDS OF CHALLENGES, TOO,
  • 00:46:56.210 --> 00:46:59.230
  • CULTURALLY WHEN YOU GET OVER THERE.
  • 00:46:59.250 --> 00:47:02.210
  • HOW DOES SERVING THE LORD AND SERVING UP A MESSAGE OF
  • 00:47:02.230 --> 00:47:08.080
  • LOVE FROM JESUS CHRIST IMPACT THE CULTURAL
  • 00:47:08.100 --> 00:47:12.100
  • DIFFERENCES THAT YOU SEE IN PHNOM PENH?
  • 00:47:12.120 --> 00:47:15.060
  • - I HAVE PEOPLE ASK ME SOMETIMES, HOW DO YOU
  • 00:47:15.080 --> 00:47:19.290
  • PREPARE MESSAGES FOR VARIOUS CULTURES?
  • 00:47:20.010 --> 00:47:23.020
  • IT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:47:23.040 --> 00:47:26.050
  • FIRST OF ALL, THE GOSPEL IS THE GOSPEL, AND I DON'T HAVE
  • 00:47:26.070 --> 00:47:30.170
  • TO CHANGE IT FOR A CULTURE.
  • 00:47:30.190 --> 00:47:33.160
  • GOD JUST TAKES HIS WORD.
  • 00:47:33.180 --> 00:47:37.090
  • HE MADE US, HE CREATED US.
  • 00:47:37.110 --> 00:47:39.070
  • NOW, THEIR CULTURE IS DIFFERENT,
  • 00:47:39.090 --> 00:47:41.210
  • BUT THE HEART IS THE SAME.
  • 00:47:41.230 --> 00:47:43.190
  • THE LONGING OF THE HUMAN HEART, THERE'S NOT A PERSON
  • 00:47:43.210 --> 00:47:46.090
  • BORN THAT DOESN'T ASK THE QUESTION, WHAT'S MY PURPOSE?
  • 00:47:46.110 --> 00:47:49.130
  • WHAT'S MY REASON? WHY AM I HERE?
  • 00:47:49.150 --> 00:47:52.080
  • I DON'T THINK THERE'S A PERSON THAT DOESN'T LOOK UP
  • 00:47:52.100 --> 00:47:56.280
  • AT THE SKY IN THE EVENING OR A SUNSET AND WONDER IS THERE
  • 00:47:57.000 --> 00:47:59.110
  • A GOD OUT THERE? WHO PUT ALL OF THIS TOGETHER?
  • 00:47:59.130 --> 00:48:03.150
  • OR TO LAY OUTSIDE AT NIGHT IN THE OPEN AND LOOK UP AT
  • 00:48:03.170 --> 00:48:06.290
  • THE STARS, AND JUST ASK, WHO PUT ALL OF THAT INTO MOTION?
  • 00:48:07.010 --> 00:48:11.190
  • SO THE HUMAN HEART IS THE SAME, AND WHEN YOU STAND AND
  • 00:48:11.210 --> 00:48:16.160
  • EXPLAIN THAT OUR SINS HAVE SEPARATED US FROM THE GOD OF
  • 00:48:16.180 --> 00:48:20.040
  • THE UNIVERSE, THE GOD WHO CREATED YOU AND MADE YOU AND
  • 00:48:20.060 --> 00:48:23.090
  • PUT ALL OF THIS INTO MOTION, OUR SINS HAVE SEPARATED US
  • 00:48:23.110 --> 00:48:26.070
  • AND KEEPS US FROM HAVING A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
  • 00:48:26.090 --> 00:48:31.050
  • BUT BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE, HE SENT HIS SON TO TAKE OUR SINS.
  • 00:48:31.070 --> 00:48:36.090
  • HE PAID THE DEBT IN FULL ON THAT CROSS WHEN HE DIED AND
  • 00:48:36.110 --> 00:48:38.160
  • SHED HIS BLOOD AND WAS BURIED FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:48:38.180 --> 00:48:41.160
  • AND THEN GOD RAISED HIS SON TO LIFE.
  • 00:48:41.180 --> 00:48:43.110
  • JESUS ISN'T IN THE GRAVE, HE'S ALIVE, AND HE'LL COME
  • 00:48:43.130 --> 00:48:47.120
  • INTO EACH AND EVERY HEART THAT INVITES HIM.
  • 00:48:47.140 --> 00:48:49.060
  • SO WHEN I GO TO CAMBODIA, I JUST PREACH A
  • 00:48:49.080 --> 00:48:52.260
  • SIMPLE GOSPEL MESSAGE.
  • 00:48:52.280 --> 00:48:54.240
  • I'LL TAKE MAYBE LIKE THE STORY OF ZACCHEUS AND JUST A
  • 00:48:54.260 --> 00:48:58.250
  • GUY WHO WANTED TO SEE WHO JESUS WAS, AND DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:48:58.270 --> 00:49:02.290
  • ANY REAL CONVICTIONS OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:49:03.010 --> 00:49:06.050
  • HE JUST WANTED TO SEE WHO HE WAS, CURIOUS.
  • 00:49:06.070 --> 00:49:09.200
  • HERE WAS THIS BIG CROWD.
  • 00:49:09.220 --> 00:49:11.270
  • OR YOU TAKE A MESSAGE LIKE BARTIMAEUS WHO'S BLIND, JUST
  • 00:49:11.290 --> 00:49:14.250
  • SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, AND HE HEARS A
  • 00:49:14.270 --> 00:49:17.160
  • COMMOTION, WHO'S THAT?
  • 00:49:17.180 --> 00:49:19.090
  • IT'S JESUS IS COMING.
  • 00:49:19.110 --> 00:49:21.170
  • AND HE CRIES OUT AT THE RIGHT MOMENT, "SON OF DAVID
  • 00:49:21.190 --> 00:49:26.060
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME." SO I TRY TO TAKE SOMETHING WHERE I
  • 00:49:26.080 --> 00:49:28.250
  • CAN TELL A STORY, AND THERE'S THIS POWER.
  • 00:49:28.270 --> 00:49:33.030
  • AND THESE ARE STORIES THAT JESUS TOLD, AND THERE'S
  • 00:49:33.050 --> 00:49:36.120
  • POWER IN THOSE STORIES.
  • 00:49:36.140 --> 00:49:38.150
  • - THAT'S WONDERFUL, THAT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:49:38.170 --> 00:49:40.160
  • THE MESSAGE OF CHRISTMAS AND THE GREATEST GIFT IN JESUS
  • 00:49:40.180 --> 00:49:45.280
  • IS A GREAT MESSAGE, BUT THE NEED TO ACCEPT THAT GIFT
  • 00:49:46.000 --> 00:49:50.110
  • THROUGH REPENTANCE AND FAITH.
  • 00:49:50.130 --> 00:49:52.220
  • - THAT'S RIGHT, REPENTANCE.
  • 00:49:52.240 --> 00:49:54.270
  • - IS KEY TO RECEIVING AND MANIFESTING THE REWARDS
  • 00:49:54.290 --> 00:49:59.190
  • OF THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:49:59.210 --> 00:50:02.000
  • WOULD YOU TALK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE?
  • 00:50:02.020 --> 00:50:05.060
  • - GOD MADE US AND CREATED US.
  • 00:50:05.080 --> 00:50:11.180
  • AND I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT
  • 00:50:11.200 --> 00:50:13.160
  • THINK THERE'S EVOLUTION.
  • 00:50:13.180 --> 00:50:15.280
  • THERE'S NO EVOLUTION, AND THERE'S NO EVIDENCE AT ALL
  • 00:50:16.000 --> 00:50:19.200
  • THAT WE BEGAN AT TADPOLES AND THEN ONE DAY GREW AN ARM
  • 00:50:19.220 --> 00:50:23.280
  • AND ANOTHER MILLION YEARS, GREW A LEG.
  • 00:50:24.000 --> 00:50:27.100
  • IT'S JUST NOT THERE, THERE'S NO EVIDENCE OF THIS STUFF.
  • 00:50:27.120 --> 00:50:29.110
  • - NONE.
  • 00:50:29.130 --> 00:50:31.070
  • - GOD CREATED US AND MADE US. HE PUT US IN A PERFECT WORLD.
  • 00:50:31.090 --> 00:50:34.200
  • WHEN WE WERE CREATED IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN,
  • 00:50:34.220 --> 00:50:38.000
  • IT WAS A PERFECT WORLD. THE TEMPERATURE WAS PERFECT.
  • 00:50:38.020 --> 00:50:40.010
  • DIDN'T HAVE TO WEAR CLOTHES. THE ANIMALS DIDN'T EAT YOU.
  • 00:50:40.030 --> 00:50:46.090
  • THE LION AND THE BEAR, EVERYONE LIVED IN HARMONY
  • 00:50:46.110 --> 00:50:50.060
  • UNTIL SIN CAME.
  • 00:50:50.080 --> 00:50:53.200
  • AND WHEN ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD -- AND THAT'S
  • 00:50:53.220 --> 00:50:56.060
  • WHAT SIN IS, IT'S DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.
  • 00:50:56.080 --> 00:50:59.000
  • AND AT THAT MOMENT WHEN THEY SINNED, SIN CAME INTO THE
  • 00:50:59.020 --> 00:51:01.290
  • WORLD, AND IT'S INHERITED.
  • 00:51:02.010 --> 00:51:04.050
  • IT HAS INFECTED THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE.
  • 00:51:04.070 --> 00:51:08.020
  • WE INHERIT IT FROM OUR PARENTS.
  • 00:51:08.040 --> 00:51:10.100
  • I'VE GOT FOUR CHILDREN, I'VE GOT 12 GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:51:10.120 --> 00:51:12.070
  • I'VE NEVER HAD TO SIT DOWN AND INSTRUCT MY CHILDREN
  • 00:51:12.090 --> 00:51:14.060
  • HOW TO DISOBEY ME.
  • 00:51:14.080 --> 00:51:15.260
  • - THEY KNEW THAT NATURALLY.
  • 00:51:15.280 --> 00:51:18.100
  • - YEAH, THEY WERE BORN WITH THIS.
  • 00:51:18.120 --> 00:51:21.020
  • AND SO WE ARE BORN AS SINNERS.
  • 00:51:21.040 --> 00:51:23.210
  • WE'RE SEPARATED FROM GOD, AND WE'RE COMING TO
  • 00:51:23.230 --> 00:51:27.030
  • CHRISTMAS, AND CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT GOD SENDING HIS SON.
  • 00:51:27.050 --> 00:51:30.010
  • BORN OF A VIRGIN IN THE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM, AND HE CAME TO
  • 00:51:30.030 --> 00:51:37.160
  • SAVE US FROM OUR SINS.
  • 00:51:37.180 --> 00:51:40.260
  • HE DIED ON THAT CROSS AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR SINS,
  • 00:51:40.280 --> 00:51:44.000
  • AND IF WE ARE WILLING TO REPENT -- AND YOU MENTIONED
  • 00:51:44.020 --> 00:51:47.230
  • THIS, AND I THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING IT BECAUSE IT
  • 00:51:47.250 --> 00:51:50.040
  • REQUIRES REPENTANCE.
  • 00:51:50.060 --> 00:51:52.060
  • WE HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT WE'RE SINNERS.
  • 00:51:52.080 --> 00:51:55.050
  • WE HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TURN FROM OUR SINS, AND BY
  • 00:51:55.070 --> 00:51:58.190
  • FAITH, BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:51:58.210 --> 00:52:03.100
  • IF WE'RE WILLING TO TURN FROM OUR SINS AND BELIEVE ON
  • 00:52:03.120 --> 00:52:06.130
  • HIS NAME AND TRUST HIM AS OUR SAVIOR AND FOLLOW HIM AS
  • 00:52:06.150 --> 00:52:09.170
  • OUR LORD, GOD WILL FORGIVE OUR SINS,
  • 00:52:09.190 --> 00:52:12.290
  • AND HE'LL HEAL OUR HEARTS.
  • 00:52:13.010 --> 00:52:15.110
  • AND YOU MAY BE OUT THERE WONDERING THIS CHRISTMAS IF
  • 00:52:15.130 --> 00:52:19.080
  • THERE IS A GOD, IF HE CARES, DOES HE LOVE ME?
  • 00:52:19.100 --> 00:52:21.180
  • AND I'VE MADE A MESS OF EVERYTHING, AND HE WON'T
  • 00:52:21.200 --> 00:52:23.210
  • FORGIVE ME FOR WHAT I'VE DONE.
  • 00:52:23.230 --> 00:52:25.100
  • I TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, HE WILL FORGIVE YOU,
  • 00:52:25.120 --> 00:52:27.170
  • I PROMISE YOU THAT.
  • 00:52:27.190 --> 00:52:29.110
  • YOU SAY, WELL, FRANKLIN, I CAN'T EVEN FORGIVE MYSELF.
  • 00:52:29.130 --> 00:52:31.080
  • WELL, MAYBE YOU CAN'T.
  • 00:52:31.100 --> 00:52:33.160
  • WELL, MY FAMILY WON'T FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:52:33.180 --> 00:52:35.200
  • MAYBE THEY WON'T, BUT GOD WILL, AND NOT ONLY WILL GOD
  • 00:52:35.220 --> 00:52:37.260
  • FORGIVE YOU IF YOU'RE WILLING TO TURN FROM THOSE
  • 00:52:37.280 --> 00:52:40.190
  • SINS, HE WILL CHANGE YOU, AND HE'LL PUT A NEW HEART
  • 00:52:40.210 --> 00:52:44.140
  • INSIDE OF YOU, AND YOU WILL BECOME A NEW PERSON.
  • 00:52:44.160 --> 00:52:47.180
  • I'VE HAD A FRIEND OF MINE THAT WAS IN THE MARINES IN
  • 00:52:47.200 --> 00:52:53.170
  • VIETNAM, AND JUST A WICKED MAN.
  • 00:52:53.190 --> 00:52:59.050
  • AND CAME HOME AND HIS MARRIAGE DIDN'T DO WELL,
  • 00:52:59.070 --> 00:53:02.260
  • AND HE WAS PLANNING ON KILLING HIS WIFE.
  • 00:53:02.280 --> 00:53:07.010
  • HE JUST HATED HER, AND HE WAS SITTING IN THE HALLWAY
  • 00:53:07.030 --> 00:53:10.140
  • WITH A SHOTGUN WHEN SHE CAME IN FROM THE STORE -- WHEN
  • 00:53:10.160 --> 00:53:14.100
  • SHE OPENED UP THAT FRONT DOOR, HE WAS GOING TO BLOW
  • 00:53:14.120 --> 00:53:18.210
  • HER OUT AND JUST RIGHT BACK ON THE STEPS, AND HE WAS
  • 00:53:18.230 --> 00:53:20.130
  • GOING TO KILL HER.
  • 00:53:20.150 --> 00:53:22.070
  • BUT IN THE OTHER ROOM, THERE WAS A PREACHER ON TV, BUT HE
  • 00:53:22.090 --> 00:53:26.180
  • DIDN'T WANT TO GET OUT AND CHANGE THE CHANNEL BECAUSE
  • 00:53:26.200 --> 00:53:28.220
  • HIS WIFE MAY BE COMING IN, SO HE WAS WAITING.
  • 00:53:28.240 --> 00:53:31.090
  • BUT HE WAS LISTENING TO THIS PREACHER GIVE THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:53:31.110 --> 00:53:34.200
  • AND IN A FEW MINUTES, HE GOT ON HIS KNEES AND REPENTED OF
  • 00:53:34.220 --> 00:53:38.150
  • THIS SIN, ASKED GOD TO FORGIVE HIM, ASKED CHRIST TO
  • 00:53:38.170 --> 00:53:42.110
  • COME INTO HIS HEART.
  • 00:53:42.130 --> 00:53:44.250
  • NOW, HIS WIFE CAME THROUGH THAT DOOR, BUT HE
  • 00:53:44.270 --> 00:53:47.130
  • DIDN'T HAVE THE SHOTGUN IN HIS HAND.
  • 00:53:47.150 --> 00:53:50.020
  • SHE KNEW WHAT HE WAS WANTING TO DO, SO I ASKED HER, I
  • 00:53:50.040 --> 00:53:53.290
  • SAID, HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO REALIZE THAT YOUR
  • 00:53:54.010 --> 00:53:56.220
  • HUSBAND WAS CHANGED?
  • 00:53:56.240 --> 00:53:59.040
  • SHE SAID, I SAW IT IMMEDIATELY, BUT IT TOOK ME
  • 00:53:59.060 --> 00:54:04.130
  • ABOUT THREE YEARS FOR ME TO REALIZE IT WAS PERMANENT.
  • 00:54:04.150 --> 00:54:09.180
  • SHE SAID, I KEPT THINKING THAT OLD TIGER WAS GOING TO
  • 00:54:09.200 --> 00:54:12.280
  • COME BACK ANY MINUTE, BUT AFTER THREE YEARS, SHE SAID,
  • 00:54:13.000 --> 00:54:16.260
  • I REALIZED THAT GOD HAD CHANGED HIM FOREVER.
  • 00:54:16.280 --> 00:54:20.260
  • AND THAT'S WHAT THE GOSPEL DOES.
  • 00:54:20.280 --> 00:54:23.210
  • AS WE COME TO CHRISTMAS, I HOPE EVERYONE WHO'S
  • 00:54:23.230 --> 00:54:25.210
  • WATCHING, IF YOU'VE NEVER INVITED CHRIST INTO YOUR
  • 00:54:25.230 --> 00:54:27.210
  • HEART OR YOUR LIFE, YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:54:27.230 --> 00:54:29.290
  • JUST SAY, GOD, I'VE SINNED. I'M SORRY, FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:54:30.010 --> 00:54:32.080
  • I BELIEVE JESUS IS YOUR SON, AND I BELIEVE THAT HE DIED
  • 00:54:32.100 --> 00:54:35.280
  • FOR ME, AND I WANT TO TURN FROM MY SINS, AND I WANT TO
  • 00:54:36.000 --> 00:54:38.090
  • INVITE JESUS TO COME INTO MY HEART.
  • 00:54:38.110 --> 00:54:40.240
  • YOU PRAY THAT PRAYER, GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:54:40.260 --> 00:54:43.120
  • HE'LL CLEANSE YOU, AND THIS CHRISTMAS, YOU CAN HAVE A
  • 00:54:43.140 --> 00:54:45.280
  • WHOLE NEW LIFE AND A NEW BEGINNING. JUST TRUST HIM.
  • 00:54:46.000 --> 00:54:50.050
  • - IT WAS CHRISTMAS 1980 WHEN I HIT THE
  • 00:54:50.070 --> 00:54:54.050
  • BOTTOM, ROCK BOTTOM.
  • 00:54:54.070 --> 00:54:59.000
  • I HAD IGNORED MESSAGES THAT I HAD HEARD ON TELEVISION
  • 00:54:59.020 --> 00:55:03.130
  • FROM BILLY GRAHAM, WHICH, FOR A MOMENT,
  • 00:55:03.150 --> 00:55:06.230
  • STOPPED ME WHERE I WAS.
  • 00:55:06.250 --> 00:55:09.290
  • BUT THE ENEMY KEPT WHISPERING IN MY EAR, AND I
  • 00:55:10.010 --> 00:55:12.160
  • KEPT FOLLOWING THAT VOICE UNTIL JUST I THINK IT WAS
  • 00:55:12.180 --> 00:55:18.000
  • CHRISTMAS EVE, AND THAT GIFT, THAT WONDERFUL GIFT OF
  • 00:55:18.020 --> 00:55:22.170
  • LIFE TOUCHED MY LIFE THROUGH A PRAYER MY BROTHER GAVE
  • 00:55:22.190 --> 00:55:28.180
  • WHEN HE PRAYED FOR ME THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:55:28.200 --> 00:55:30.160
  • AND IT JUST TURNED MY LIFE AROUND BECAUSE I REPENTED,
  • 00:55:30.180 --> 00:55:40.250
  • AND I ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:55:40.270 --> 00:55:43.260
  • AND NOW IT'S BEEN, IT WILL BE 40 YEARS, OR 39 YEARS THIS
  • 00:55:43.280 --> 00:55:49.160
  • CHRISTMAS, AND 40 YEAR NEXT YEAR SINCE I'VE BEEN
  • 00:55:49.180 --> 00:55:56.220
  • WALKING, CARRYING THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:55:56.240 --> 00:55:59.100
  • - AMEN, AMEN.
  • 00:55:59.120 --> 00:56:01.120
  • - I'VE STRUGGLED FROM TIME TO TIME, BUT GOD IS
  • 00:56:01.140 --> 00:56:03.120
  • FAITHFUL, AND HE WILL HELP YOU ALL THE WAY THROUGH.
  • 00:56:03.140 --> 00:56:07.020
  • - HE WILL, HE'LL DO IT.
  • 00:56:07.040 --> 00:56:08.260
  • - I'M WONDERING IF YOU WOULD PRAY FOR OUR AUDIENCE
  • 00:56:08.280 --> 00:56:12.050
  • THAT THEIR CHRISTMAS WILL BE BLESSED IN
  • 00:56:12.070 --> 00:56:14.190
  • THE MOST SPECIAL WAY.
  • 00:56:14.210 --> 00:56:16.070
  • - I'LL DO THAT.
  • 00:56:16.090 --> 00:56:18.070
  • - NOT WITH A GIFT UNDER THE TREE, BUT WITH A
  • 00:56:18.090 --> 00:56:20.160
  • GIFT IN THEIR HEART.
  • 00:56:20.180 --> 00:56:22.020

  • 00:56:54.240 --> 00:57:00.110
  • I BELIEVE JESUS TOOK MY SINS TO THE CROSS, THAT HE DIED
  • 00:57:00.130 --> 00:57:04.260
  • AND SHED HIS BLOOD ON MY BEHALF, AND I WANT TO INVITE
  • 00:57:04.280 --> 00:57:09.270
  • HIM TO COME INTO MY HEART, TO TAKE CONTROL OF MY LIFE
  • 00:57:09.290 --> 00:57:14.290
