  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: CHURCH,
  • 00:00:11.100 --> 00:00:14.100
  • TODAY I AM SO THANKFUL
  • 00:00:14.100 --> 00:00:15.250
  • THAT WHILE NOAH HAD TO BUILD
  • 00:00:15.250 --> 00:00:17.090
  • HIS ARK,
  • 00:00:17.090 --> 00:00:18.060
  • JESUS CHRIST IS THE ARK
  • 00:00:18.060 --> 00:00:20.250
  • OF MY SALVATION.
  • 00:00:21.050 --> 00:00:24.050
  • GENESIS 7:1, GOD SAID TO NOAH;
  • 00:00:24.050 --> 00:00:26.190
  • HE SAID, "COME INTO THE ARK,
  • 00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:28.180
  • YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD."
  • 00:00:29.020 --> 00:00:32.020
  • NOW IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHETHER
  • 00:00:32.020 --> 00:00:33.000
  • OR NOT NOAH WAS WILLING TO DO
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:35.050
  • WHAT GOD SAYS,
  • 00:00:35.050 --> 00:00:36.110
  • THE FACT THAT HE GOT
  • 00:00:36.110 --> 00:00:37.020
  • ON THE BOAT DEMONSTRATES
  • 00:00:37.020 --> 00:00:39.180
  • THAT HE WAS A MAN OF FAITH.
  • 00:00:39.180 --> 00:00:41.280
  • I MEAN, NOAH,
  • 00:00:41.280 --> 00:00:44.250
  • HOW ARE YOU GOING TO STEER?
  • 00:00:44.250 --> 00:00:47.000
  • "I DON'T KNOW;
  • 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:47.110
  • THERE'S NO RUDDER."
  • 00:00:47.110 --> 00:00:49.220
  • WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO GO?"
  • 00:00:49.220 --> 00:00:51.260
  • I DON'T KNOW;
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.230
  • WE'VE NEVER BEEN ON A CRUISE
  • 00:00:53.230 --> 00:00:54.200
  • BEFORE."
  • 00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:56.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:00:56.070 --> 00:00:57.230
  • IF YOU DON'T THINK
  • 00:00:57.230 --> 00:00:58.080
  • NOAH WAS A MAN OF FAITH,
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:00:59.130
  • THINK ABOUT HIS WIFE.
  • 00:00:59.130 --> 00:01:02.060
  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE EVER
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.060
  • GOTTEN IN A FIGHT
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:04.030
  • WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING SOMEWHERE
  • 00:01:04.030 --> 00:01:05.100
  • WITH YOUR SPOUSE,
  • 00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:06.180
  • AND THERE IS A VOICE GIVING YOU
  • 00:01:06.180 --> 00:01:08.150
  • DIRECTIONS,
  • 00:01:08.150 --> 00:01:09.040
  • AND YOU'RE ARGUING ABOUT THE
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:10.080
  • DIRECTIONS THAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED
  • 00:01:10.080 --> 00:01:11.150
  • TO NOT BE FOLLOWING?
  • 00:01:11.150 --> 00:01:13.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:13.110 --> 00:01:16.110
  • KENDAL CAN PUT A DESTINATION IN
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:18.000
  • ON THE MAP,
  • 00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:18.170
  • AND I'M LIKE,
  • 00:01:18.170 --> 00:01:19.020
  • "THAT'S NOT HOW YOU GET THERE."
  • 00:01:19.020 --> 00:01:21.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:23.020
  • HERE, NOAH'S WIFE GETS ON
  • 00:01:23.020 --> 00:01:24.180
  • A BOAT WITH HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:01:24.180 --> 00:01:25.190
  • WHO HAS NEVER SAILED A BOAT,
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:27.030
  • AND DOESN'T HAVE A WHEEL
  • 00:01:27.030 --> 00:01:28.010
  • TO TURN A BOAT,
  • 00:01:28.010 --> 00:01:28.280
  • DOESN'T HAVE A RUDDER TO STEER
  • 00:01:28.280 --> 00:01:30.040
  • A BOAT,
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:30.220
  • AND THERE'S ONLY ONE DOOR.
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:33.050
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:33.200
  • SHE'S OOH WOMAN OF FAITH.
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:35.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:35.110 --> 00:01:36.220
  • NOAH'S SONS GOT ON THE BOAT
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:38.030
  • WITH THEM,
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:39.280
  • BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED
  • 00:01:39.280 --> 00:01:41.020
  • LIKE DAD BELIEVED.
  • 00:01:41.020 --> 00:01:43.030
  • IT SAVED HIS WHOLE HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:47.070
  • AND FATHERS AND MOTHERS,
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:48.020
  • IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT I WANT
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:49.030
  • TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO TODAY,
  • 00:01:49.030 --> 00:01:50.200
  • IT IS MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:52.210
  • DOING ALL WITHIN YOUR POWER
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:54.230
  • TO REACH YOUR HOUSEHOLD
  • 00:01:54.230 --> 00:01:57.130
  • FOR JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:01:57.130 --> 00:02:00.020
  • BECAUSE, "AS IT WAS
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:01.090
  • IN THE DAYS OF NOAH."
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:04.130
  • PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:02:04.130 --> 00:02:04.260
  • "WELL NOAH HAD IT EASY.
  • 00:02:04.260 --> 00:02:05.260
  • I MEAN HE WAS RAISING HIS KIDS
  • 00:02:05.260 --> 00:02:07.180
  • WHEN EVERYTHING WAS DIFFERENT."
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:08.210
  • NO, NOT REALLY.
  • 00:02:08.210 --> 00:02:10.210
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:11.140
  • "AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS
  • 00:02:11.140 --> 00:02:12.260
  • OF NOAH."
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:13.080
  • THE SAME TEMPTATIONS,
  • 00:02:13.080 --> 00:02:14.160
  • THE SAME PRESSURES,
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:15.170
  • THE SAME THINGS THAT NOAH FACED
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:17.150
  • IN HIS GENERATION
  • 00:02:17.150 --> 00:02:18.160
  • ARE THE SAME THINGS
  • 00:02:18.160 --> 00:02:19.060
  • THAT WE'RE FACING IN OURS.
  • 00:02:19.140 --> 00:02:22.140
  • MEN'S HEART'S IN NOAH'S
  • 00:02:22.140 --> 00:02:23.210
  • GENERATION WERE TURNED TOWARD
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:24.270
  • WICKEDNESS CONTINUALLY.
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:26.160
  • AND GOD SAID,
  • 00:02:26.160 --> 00:02:27.020
  • I'M NOT GOING TO STRIDE
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:28.010
  • WITH THEM FOREVER.
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:28.280
  • HOW DO WE COMPARE
  • 00:02:28.280 --> 00:02:30.230
  • TO NOAH'S GENERATION?
  • 00:02:30.230 --> 00:02:31.190
  • CONSIDER WHAT GOD SEES WHEN HE
  • 00:02:31.190 --> 00:02:33.110
  • LOOKS DOWN ON THIS EARTH TODAY.
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:36.010
  • HE LOOKS AT A GENERATION
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:37.090
  • THAT HAS A FORM OF GODLINESS
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:38.270
  • BUT DENIES THE POWER THEREOF.
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:40.280
  • HE LOOKS AT A GENERATION THAT
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:42.020
  • KNOWS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:02:42.020 --> 00:02:43.190
  • WE JUST DON'T WANT TO BEHAVE
  • 00:02:43.190 --> 00:02:44.270
  • LIKE WE BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:46.150
  • HE LOOKS AT A GENERATION THAT
  • 00:02:46.150 --> 00:02:47.210
  • PUTS A PREMIUM ON COMFORT AND
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:49.180
  • RUNS FROM THE INCONVENIENCE
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:51.100
  • OF COMMITMENT.
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:52.260
  • HE LOOKS AT A GENERATION THAT
  • 00:02:52.260 --> 00:02:54.000
  • IS SERVING NONE BUT OURSELVES
  • 00:02:54.000 --> 00:02:56.050
  • RATHER THAN SEEKING GOD.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:57.280
  • WE'VE EXCHANGED THE TRUTH
  • 00:02:57.280 --> 00:02:59.050
  • FOR A LIE.
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:00.030
  • IT'S THE GENERATION THAT PAUL
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:01.170
  • DESCRIBED IN 2 TIMOTHY 3
  • 00:03:01.170 --> 00:03:03.170
  • WHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:04.030
  • "KNOW THIS;
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:05.010
  • IN THE LAST DAYS,
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:05.280
  • PERILOUS TIMES WILL COME.
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:07.130
  • FOR MEN WILL BE LOVERS
  • 00:03:07.130 --> 00:03:08.090
  • OF THEMSELVES,
  • 00:03:08.090 --> 00:03:09.080
  • LOVERS OF MONEY,
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.010
  • BOASTERS,
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:10.190
  • BLASPHEMISTS,
  • 00:03:10.190 --> 00:03:11.090
  • DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS,
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:12.150
  • UNTHANKFUL,
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:13.040
  • UNHOLY,
  • 00:03:13.040 --> 00:03:13.240
  • UNLOVING,
  • 00:03:13.240 --> 00:03:14.140
  • UNFORGIVING."
  • 00:03:14.140 --> 00:03:15.150
  • AND THAT'S JUST THE TOP TEN.
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:18.270
  • WHEN HE GETS DONE WITH
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:19.170
  • THE LIST,
  • 00:03:19.170 --> 00:03:20.050
  • HE SAYS, "FROM SUCH PEOPLE,
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.200
  • TURN AWAY."
  • 00:03:21.200 --> 00:03:23.120
  • JUST AS GOD SAW
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:24.270
  • NOAH'S GENERATION,
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:26.040
  • HE SEES OUR GENERATION.
  • 00:03:27.050 --> 00:03:30.050
  • BUT WE STILL HAVE TO WIN
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:31.250
  • OUR HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:03:31.250 --> 00:03:33.230
  • YOU MIGHT NOT WIN THE WORLD,
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:35.010
  • BUT MAKE SURE YOU WIN YOUR SON
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:36.210
  • AND YOUR DAUGHTER.
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:39.030
  • YOU MIGHT NOT FILL A STADIUM
  • 00:03:39.030 --> 00:03:40.120
  • AND PREACH TO THOUSANDS,
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:42.210
  • BUT MAKE SURE THOSE THAT
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:43.180
  • YOU EAT DINNER WITH EVERY NIGHT
  • 00:03:43.180 --> 00:03:44.250
  • KNOW WHAT YOU BELIEVE,
  • 00:03:44.250 --> 00:03:47.150
  • BECAUSE NOAH SAVED
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:49.260
  • HIS HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:03:49.260 --> 00:03:51.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:54.170
  • WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY,
  • 00:03:54.170 --> 00:03:55.250
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THERE'S ONLY
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:03:57.020
  • ONE THING THAT MAKES
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:58.020
  • THE DIFFERENCE,
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:03:58.220
  • AND THAT'S FAITH.
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:01.020
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO COMPARE
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:02.070
  • ONE HOUSEHOLD TO THE OTHER,
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.180
  • AND THEY LOOK AT
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:04.040
  • THE WRONG THINGS.
  • 00:04:04.040 --> 00:04:05.060
  • THEY LOOK ACROSS THE STREET,
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:06.030
  • AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:06.180
  • "WELL THOSE PEOPLE HAVE MONEY."
  • 00:04:06.180 --> 00:04:07.190
  • MONEY DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:08.090
  • THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:10.250
  • THEY LOOK AT A FAMILY,
  • 00:04:10.250 --> 00:04:11.150
  • AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:04:11.150 --> 00:04:12.020
  • "WELL THEY VALUE EDUCATION;
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:13.020
  • THEY'VE ALL GOT DEGREES."
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:13.290
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING;
  • 00:04:13.290 --> 00:04:14.240
  • EDUCATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE
  • 00:04:14.240 --> 00:04:16.090
  • INTELLIGENCE.
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:18.000
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:21.280 --> 00:04:24.280
  • THE ONE THING THAT MAKES
  • 00:04:24.280 --> 00:04:25.180
  • A DIFFERENCE IN FAMILY
  • 00:04:25.180 --> 00:04:27.110
  • IS FAITH.
  • 00:04:27.110 --> 00:04:29.150
  • FAITH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:32.290
  • IF YOU VALUE FINANCES,
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:34.070
  • YOU MAY HOLD YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:35.110
  • TOGETHER WITH THE GOLDEN
  • 00:04:35.110 --> 00:04:36.170
  • HANDCUFFS OF PRIVILEGE.
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:38.000
  • BUT SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:38.240
  • YOUR FINANCES WILL FAIL.
  • 00:04:38.240 --> 00:04:41.020
  • IF YOU VALUE EDUCATION,
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:42.100
  • SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:04:42.100 --> 00:04:43.010
  • YOU'RE GOING TO COME TO
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:43.220
  • A QUESTION THAT NO FORM
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:45.020
  • OF EDUCATION CAN ANSWER,
  • 00:04:45.020 --> 00:04:46.210
  • AND EDUCATION WILL FAIL.
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:48.160
  • IF YOU VALUE YOUR CULTURE,
  • 00:04:48.160 --> 00:04:50.000
  • YOU'RE GOING TO DRAW LINES
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:51.130
  • THAT GIVE YOU A REASON TO STAY
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:53.260
  • WITH SOMEONE AND LEAVE ANOTHER,
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:56.070
  • AND CULTURE WILL FAIL.
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:58.240
  • BUT WHENEVER YOU VALUE FAITH,
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:01.270
  • YOU'RE AMONG
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:02.130
  • THE WEALTHIEST PEOPLE
  • 00:05:02.130 --> 00:05:03.060
  • ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:05.010
  • WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY,
  • 00:05:05.010 --> 00:05:06.100
  • FAITH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:05:06.230 --> 00:05:09.230
  • NOAH HAD FAITH IN HIS LIFE
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:11.230
  • BEFORE HE HAD ANYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:05:11.230 --> 00:05:14.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT NOAH FOUND
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.100
  • GRACE IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.
  • 00:05:15.100 --> 00:05:17.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:17.280
  • BECAUSE WHEN AN ENTIRE
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:19.040
  • GENERATION OF PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:20.180
  • LIVING AS THEY WANTED TO,
  • 00:05:20.180 --> 00:05:22.000
  • WERE CHOOSING TO BE WICKED,
  • 00:05:22.000 --> 00:05:23.180
  • NOAH SAID, I STILL BELIEVE.
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:27.230
  • WHEN THE REST OF THE WORLD HAD
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:29.100
  • THUMBED THEIR NOSE AT GOD,
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.250
  • NOAH STILL BEHAVED AS IF GOD
  • 00:05:30.250 --> 00:05:32.270
  • WAS SITTING ON THE THRONE.
  • 00:05:32.270 --> 00:05:34.270
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:35.160
  • I BELIEVE WHAT MY GRANDFATHER,
  • 00:05:35.160 --> 00:05:36.150
  • METHUSELAH, TOLD ME;
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:37.210
  • THAT GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:39.010
  • AND THE EARTH.
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:39.180
  • I BELIEVED WHAT HE SHARED
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.060
  • WITH ME ABOUT ADAM,
  • 00:05:41.060 --> 00:05:42.170
  • HOW HE WAS FORMED IN THE DUST
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:43.260
  • OF THE GROUND,
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:44.210
  • AND HOW GOD BREATHED LIFE
  • 00:05:44.210 --> 00:05:46.020
  • INTO HIS NOSTRILS.
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:47.070
  • I BELIEVE THAT WE ARE CREATED
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:49.070
  • AND THAT GOD IS STILL
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:50.180
  • ON THE THRONE;
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:51.170
  • AND THAT WE SHOULD OBEY HIM.
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.070
  • AND IF WE DISOBEY HIM,
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:54.180
  • THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:57.000
  • NOAH HAD FAITH.
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:58.080
  • AND BECAUSE HE HAD FAITH,
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:05:59.230
  • GOD SAW HIM IN A WICKED
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:01.150
  • GENERATION,
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:02.140
  • AND GOD GAVE HIM GRACE.
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:04.240
  • WHAT IS IT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:06:04.240 --> 00:06:05.240
  • THAT GIVES GOD THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:07.150
  • TO POUR HIS GRACE OUT UPON YOU?
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:09.030
  • IT'S NOT YOUR WORKS.
  • 00:06:09.030 --> 00:06:10.260
  • IT'S NOT YOUR EDUCATION.
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:12.080
  • IT'S NOT YOUR RESOURCES.
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:13.260
  • IT'S NOT YOUR INFLUENCE.
  • 00:06:13.260 --> 00:06:15.120
  • IT IS YOUR FAITH!
  • 00:06:15.140 --> 00:06:18.140
  • "WITHOUT FAITH,
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.180
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:06:19.180 --> 00:06:21.070
  • TO PLEASE GOD."
  • 00:06:21.070 --> 00:06:23.160
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT ACCOLADES
  • 00:06:23.160 --> 00:06:24.160
  • YOU ACHIEVE.
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:25.050
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT AWARDS
  • 00:06:25.050 --> 00:06:26.060
  • YOU RECEIVE.
  • 00:06:26.060 --> 00:06:26.240
  • I DON'T CARE WHO THINKS
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:27.230
  • YOU'RE IMPORTANT.
  • 00:06:27.230 --> 00:06:28.150
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH,
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:30.130
  • GOD IS NOT CONTENT WITH YOU.
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:34.040
  • NOAH FOUND GRACE IN THE EYES
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:35.080
  • OF THE LORD
  • 00:06:35.080 --> 00:06:35.260
  • BECAUSE NOAH WAS FAITHFUL.
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:38.130
  • HE SAID, I STILL BELIEVE.
  • 00:06:38.130 --> 00:06:41.070
  • WHEN OTHERS MOCKED HIM
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:42.060
  • FOR BUILDING AN ARK,
  • 00:06:42.060 --> 00:06:42.290
  • HE SAID, I STILL BELIEVE.
  • 00:06:42.290 --> 00:06:45.190
  • WHEN THEY SCORNED HIM BECAUSE
  • 00:06:45.190 --> 00:06:47.070
  • OF HIS FAITHFULNESS TO CONTINUE
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:48.260
  • TO POUND HAMMER AND THE NAILS
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:50.160
  • IN THE PLANKS,
  • 00:06:50.160 --> 00:06:52.240
  • WHEN THEY MADE JOKES ABOUT HIM
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:53.270
  • AS HE WALKED DOWN THE STREET,
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:55.020
  • WHEN THEY WHISPERED ABOUT HIM
  • 00:06:55.020 --> 00:06:56.000
  • IN THE CORNER
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:56.180
  • OF THEIR PUBLIC ROOMS,
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:58.140
  • HE SAID, I STILL BELIEVE.
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:01.220
  • NOAH BELIEVED WHEN OTHERS
  • 00:07:01.220 --> 00:07:02.270
  • DID NOT.
  • 00:07:02.270 --> 00:07:04.120
  • WILL YOU?
  • 00:07:04.120 --> 00:07:06.070
  • WHERE IS YOUR FAITH TODAY?
  • 00:07:06.070 --> 00:07:08.250
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:09.140
  • "HAVE FAITH IN GOD."
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:12.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:13.080
  • "HAVE FAITH IN GOD."
  • 00:07:13.080 --> 00:07:16.060
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:16.230
  • "WELL THAT'S HARD TO DO."
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:17.160
  • NO, IT'S NOT.
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:18.060
  • YOU HAVE FAITH IN SOMETHING.
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:21.000
  • RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:21.170
  • WHETHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT,
  • 00:07:21.170 --> 00:07:22.120
  • YOU HAVE FAITH IN THE ENGINEERS
  • 00:07:22.120 --> 00:07:23.270
  • THAT DESIGNED THIS BUILDING.
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:25.040
  • BECAUSE IF YOU DIDN'T,
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:25.280
  • YOU WOULDN'T BE SITTING HERE.
  • 00:07:25.280 --> 00:07:27.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:29.280
  • EVERYONE HAS A MEASURE
  • 00:07:29.280 --> 00:07:31.020
  • OF FAITH.
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:31.250
  • AND WHENEVER IT COMES TO
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:32.260
  • THE ONE PLACE YOU CAN PUT YOUR
  • 00:07:32.260 --> 00:07:34.030
  • FAITH AND NOT BE DISAPPOINTED,
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:35.290
  • THE ONLY THING THAT YOU CAN PUT
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:37.080
  • YOUR FAITH IN THAT WILL
  • 00:07:37.080 --> 00:07:38.110
  • NEVER FAIL IS GOD ALMIGHTY.
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:41.230
  • YOUR FAITH IN FINANCES
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:42.270
  • WILL FAIL.
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:44.130
  • YOUR FAITH IN NATURAL STRENGTH
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:45.210
  • WILL FAIL.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:46.160
  • YOUR FAITH IN OTHER MEN
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:48.020
  • WILL ALLOW YOU TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:49.170
  • THAT SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:50.170
  • OTHER MEN WILL FAIL YOU.
  • 00:07:50.170 --> 00:07:52.210
  • BUT YOUR FAITH IN GOD
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:53.240
  • WILL NEVER FAIL.
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:56.030
  • SO HOW DO YOU RESPOND
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:57.030
  • IN A GENERATION
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:59.040
  • LIKE NOAH'S GENERATION?
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:01.220
  • IN A GENERATION WHERE GOING
  • 00:08:01.220 --> 00:08:02.270
  • TO CHURCH IS NOT THE NORM?
  • 00:08:03.030 --> 00:08:06.030
  • FATHER, HOW DO YOU RESPOND
  • 00:08:06.030 --> 00:08:07.070
  • WHEN YOU GO TO WORK,
  • 00:08:07.070 --> 00:08:08.070
  • AND YOUR COWORKER SAYS,
  • 00:08:08.070 --> 00:08:09.060
  • "WHY DO YOU PRAY?"
  • 00:08:09.060 --> 00:08:12.010
  • DO YOU RUN FROM YOUR FAITH
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:13.150
  • OR DO YOU PRESS INTO IT?
  • 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:16.160
  • NOAH BEHAVED LIKE HE BELIEVED.
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:19.210
  • THE MORE THEY MOCKED HIM,
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:21.010
  • THE HARDER HE WORKED.
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:22.220
  • THE MORE THEY SCORNED HIM,
  • 00:08:22.220 --> 00:08:24.010
  • THE FASTER HE BUILT.
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:26.000
  • WHENEVER THE WORLD, THE FLESH,
  • 00:08:26.000 --> 00:08:27.050
  • AND THE DEVIL DO WHAT THEY CAN
  • 00:08:27.050 --> 00:08:28.130
  • TO DISCOURAGE YOU,
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:29.210
  • DON'T HIDE IN YOUR FAITH;
  • 00:08:29.210 --> 00:08:32.050
  • PRESS INTO YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:33.150
  • AND LET GOD ARISE
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:34.200
  • AND HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED.
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:37.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:42.070
  • WHY?
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:42.260
  • BECAUSE YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:44.020
  • ARE WATCHING YOU.
  • 00:08:44.020 --> 00:08:46.110
  • HOW WOULD YOUR CHILDREN RESPOND
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:47.270
  • IF YOU WALKED INTO THE A ROOM,
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.080
  • AND SOMEBODY SAID,
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:49.260
  • "IS THAT YOUR WIFE?"
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:50.230
  • AND YOU WENT...
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:53.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:59.180
  • "YEAH"?
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:01.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:03.050
  • THEY WOULD IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:04.010
  • INTERPRET THAT AS
  • 00:09:04.010 --> 00:09:06.010
  • YOU DON'T VALUE HER.
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:10.100
  • HOW DO THEY INTERPRET
  • 00:09:10.100 --> 00:09:12.050
  • YOUR CONVICTION FOR CHRIST?
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:15.190
  • WHAT DO THEY SEE YOU DO FOR HIM
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:17.060
  • ON A REGULAR BASIS THAT MAKES
  • 00:09:17.060 --> 00:09:18.170
  • THEM BELIEVE THAT YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:09:18.170 --> 00:09:20.150
  • STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:21.290
  • OF HIS WORD?
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:24.070
  • MOTHER,
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:24.220
  • WHAT DO YOU DO
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:25.230
  • WHEN YOUR NEIGHBORS WANT YOU
  • 00:09:25.230 --> 00:09:26.190
  • TO COMPROMISE YOUR CONVICTIONS;
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:29.040
  • WHEN THEY WANT YOUR SUNDAY
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.010
  • RELATIONSHIP TO BE
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:30.290
  • A ONE-DAY-A-WEEK THING,
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:32.080
  • AND YOUR WORLDLY RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:09:32.080 --> 00:09:33.180
  • TO BE A SIX-DAY-A-WEEK THING?
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:36.220
  • "HAVE FAITH IN GOD."
  • 00:09:37.160 --> 00:09:40.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT FAITH
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:41.190
  • IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:43.030
  • HOPED FOR,
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:43.270
  • THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:44.250
  • NOT SEEN.
  • 00:09:44.250 --> 00:09:46.200
  • NOAH HAD FAITH AND HE PUT WORK
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:49.060
  • IN WITH HIS FAITH.
  • 00:09:49.060 --> 00:09:51.000
  • HE'D NEVER SEEN A FLOOD.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:53.020
  • THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:53.290
  • THAT THE WATER WAS GOING
  • 00:09:53.290 --> 00:09:54.220
  • TO COME LIKE GOD SAID.
  • 00:09:54.220 --> 00:09:56.070
  • BUT THE SUBSTANCE OF HIS FAITH
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:09:57.260
  • WAS THE FACT THAT HE BUILT
  • 00:09:57.260 --> 00:09:58.250
  • AN ARK.
  • 00:09:58.250 --> 00:10:00.180
  • WE'VE NEVER SEEN A RAPTURE.
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:03.050
  • BUT JESUS SAID THAT THE DAY
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:04.240
  • IS COMING LIKE A THIEF
  • 00:10:04.240 --> 00:10:05.200
  • IN THE NIGHT,
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:06.090
  • WHEN THE TRUMP OF GOD
  • 00:10:06.090 --> 00:10:07.010
  • SHALL SOUND,
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:07.180
  • AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST
  • 00:10:07.180 --> 00:10:08.100
  • SHALL RISE,
  • 00:10:08.100 --> 00:10:09.000
  • AND WE WHO ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN
  • 00:10:09.000 --> 00:10:10.130
  • SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TO MEET
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:11.150
  • THE LORD IN THE AIR.
  • 00:10:11.150 --> 00:10:13.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:18.160
  • WE DON'T HAVE EVIDENCE OF IT;
  • 00:10:18.160 --> 00:10:19.260
  • WE'VE JUST GOT THE WORD.
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:21.040
  • AND WE PUT OUR SUBSTANCE
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:22.180
  • INTO THAT PRACTICE.
  • 00:10:22.180 --> 00:10:24.080
  • WHY?
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:24.230
  • HOW?
  • 00:10:24.230 --> 00:10:25.080
  • WHEN?
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:26.020
  • BY READING,
  • 00:10:26.020 --> 00:10:26.210
  • BY PRAYING,
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:27.140
  • BY PRAISING.
  • 00:10:27.140 --> 00:10:29.200
  • JUST AS NOAH BUILT AN ARK,
  • 00:10:29.200 --> 00:10:31.010
  • WITH EVERY PRAYER
  • 00:10:31.010 --> 00:10:31.230
  • THAT YOU PRAY,

  • BEHIND A PULPIT.
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:25.120

  • TO HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:33.140

  • HOW ARE YOU BEHAVING
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:47.070

  • 00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:49.130
  • IN THE GOD THAT YOU SERVE?

  • FOR 100 YEARS,
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:04.210
  • THEY WALKED RIGHT NEXT TO HIM

  • IS WHAT THEY'LL IMPLEMENT
  • 00:14:45.010 --> 00:14:46.030
  • IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:48.000
  • NOAH SET A RIGHT EXAMPLE.
  • 00:14:48.000 --> 00:14:49.160
  • HE WAS SO CONSISTENT IN IT THAT
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:51.250
  • HIS CHILDREN NEVER QUESTIONED
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:53.020

  • OR ARE YOU CONSTANTLY

  • GOING YOUR OWN WAY?

  • THE KIND OF EXAMPLE YOU SET FOR
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:14.000
  • YOUR CHILDREN WILL DETERMINE
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.150
  • WHETHER OR NOT THEY GET
  • 00:15:15.150 --> 00:15:16.120
  • ON THE ARK OF SALVATION.

  • HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT NOAH'S
  • 00:15:19.040 --> 00:15:20.000
  • WIFE WAS IN SUPPORT OF IT?
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:21.080
  • BECAUSE HIS SONS WORKED

  • DO YOU FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE
  • 00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:19.070
  • THAT YOUR PARENTS HAVE SET?
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:23.110
  • HAM, SHEM, AND JAPHETH
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:24.170

  • HAVE A GOOD MARRIAGE,
  • 00:18:31.270 --> 00:18:32.240
  • YOU THINK THOSE THREE BOYS
  • 00:18:32.240 --> 00:18:33.220
  • WOULD HAVE SIGNED UP?

  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:18:52.120 --> 00:18:52.250

  • THEY'VE FAITHFULLY SHOWN THEM
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:10.130
  • WHAT IS RIGHT
  • 00:19:10.130 --> 00:19:11.030

  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:11.230
  • THEY'VE LOVED THEM.
  • 00:19:11.230 --> 00:19:12.180
  • THEY'VE PROVIDED FOR THEM.
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:13.260
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:19:13.260 --> 00:19:15.030
  • SOMETHING;
  • 00:19:15.030 --> 00:19:15.170
  • IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:19:15.170 --> 00:19:17.010
  • CHILD, TO OBEY YOUR PARENTS.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:27.080
  • YOU SAY,

  • "WELL YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:28.100
  • OF ME."
  • 00:19:28.100 --> 00:19:29.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:30.060
  • YOU'RE RIGHT; I'M NOT.
  • 00:19:30.060 --> 00:19:32.040
  • HERE'S WHAT GOD SAID ABOUT IT;
  • 00:19:32.040 --> 00:19:33.040
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:19:33.040 --> 00:19:33.170
  • "CHILDREN, OBEY YOUR PARENTS;
  • 00:19:33.170 --> 00:19:34.210
  • FOR THIS IS RIGHT."
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:37.080
  • NOW, I DON'T WANT
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:37.240
  • TO OVERCOMPLICATE THINGS,
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:38.270
  • BUT WHEN GOD SAYS,
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:39.160
  • "IT'S RIGHT,"
  • 00:19:39.160 --> 00:19:40.080
  • IT MEANS YOU SHOULD DO IT.
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:43.230
  • AND THE THING THAT FOLLOWS THAT
  • 00:19:43.230 --> 00:19:44.220
  • VERSE IS THIS SIMPLE STATEMENT;
  • 00:19:44.220 --> 00:19:46.290
  • THIS IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT
  • 00:19:46.290 --> 00:19:48.040
  • WITH A PROMISE.
  • 00:19:48.040 --> 00:19:50.080
  • AND THAT PROMISE IS THAT IT
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:51.160
  • WILL BE WELL WITH YOU
  • 00:19:51.160 --> 00:19:52.220
  • AND YOU WILL HAVE A LONG LIFE.
  • 00:19:52.220 --> 00:19:55.200
  • NOW, AGAIN,
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:57.010
  • I DON'T WANT TO OVERCOMPLICATE
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:19:57.280
  • THINGS.
  • 00:19:57.280 --> 00:19:59.210
  • BUT IF OBEDIENCE
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:00.140
  • TO YOUR PARENTS ENSURES A LONG
  • 00:20:00.140 --> 00:20:02.210
  • AND PROSPEROUS LIFE,
  • 00:20:02.210 --> 00:20:04.170
  • HOW MANY OF YOU FIND THAT
  • 00:20:04.170 --> 00:20:05.070
  • BENEFIT TO BE WORTH THE EFFORT?

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:14.260
  • BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE WORK TO DO,
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.210
  • THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:20:17.210 --> 00:20:18.240
  • "FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS --"
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:19.270
  • WHAT?
  • 00:20:19.270 --> 00:20:20.170
  • [Dead.]
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:21.090
  • "-- DEAD."
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:22.230
  • NOAH HEARD THE WARNING.
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:24.110
  • NOAH BELIEVED WHAT GOD SAID.
  • 00:20:24.110 --> 00:20:26.070
  • AND THEN NOAH DID EXACTLY
  • 00:20:26.070 --> 00:20:28.000
  • WHAT WE MUST DO.
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:29.040
  • HE GOT UP AND HE WENT TO WORK
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:31.000
  • BUILDING THE BOAT.
  • 00:20:31.000 --> 00:20:32.200
  • SOME OF GOD'S KIDS SIMPLY HEAR

  • WHAT GOD SAYS,
  • 00:20:34.170 --> 00:20:35.160
  • AND THEY DO THE EXACT OPPOSITE.
  • 00:20:35.160 --> 00:20:37.280
  • THEY STAND IN THEIR LIVING ROOM
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:38.260
  • AND THEY GO,
  • 00:20:38.260 --> 00:20:39.100
  • "OH JESUS, THANK YOU.

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:45.260 --> 00:20:47.040
  • GOD SAYS, "BUILD AN ARK."
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:48.120
  • AND YOU SAY,

  • "JUST BRING IT TO ME, JESUS."
  • 00:20:48.260 --> 00:20:50.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:50.290 --> 00:20:52.240
  • GOD IS NOT A SOCIALIST.
  • 00:20:53.050 --> 00:20:56.050
  • IF YOU WANT IT,
  • 00:20:56.050 --> 00:20:57.080
  • HE SAYS WORK FOR IT.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:08.120
  • HIS PROMISE DOES NOT ENTITLE
