HELLO I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I AM LAURA-LYNN TYLER TH.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW TODAY.

YOU KNOW, LAURA-LYNN, WE LOVT

SHOW,

TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL

YES.

THAT WAS ON FOR SO LONG, BUTS

ARE ACTUALLY

AMONG US NOW.

REAL BEINGS.

YES. HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED

AN ANGEL?

I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL

BUT I WORKED WITH ANOTHER

BROADCASTER. HIS NAME WAS

DOUG COY AND HE HAD AN EXPERIENE

WHERE HE WAS AT A CAMP MEETING -

AFTER THE CAMP MEETING HAD

ENDED A WOMAN WENT UP AND SHE

WAS JUST PLAYING BY HERSELF ON A

DARKENED STAGE. SHE WAS PLAYING

THE PIANO AND HE SAT DOWN AND

AS HE LOOKED ACROSS BOTH OF

THEM LOOKED OUT INTO THE PEWS

AND THERE WAS TONS OF ANGELS

AND THEY BOTH TESTIFIED THAT

THEY SAW THIS. IT WAS AMAZING.

WHEN GOD GAVE ME HIS

COMMISSION IN CANADA I ACTUALLYN

EXPERIENCE WITH AN ANGEL.

YOU DID?

AND IT STARTED THE MINISTRY A

IN PRAYER AND THAT'S ABOUT FIFTS

AGO

TODAY.

WELL, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE L

US ABOUT

THAT ONE DAY, BRIAN.

SOME TIME, YES.

YES. ON TODAY'S SHOW YOU WILE

WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN CHRISTINE MARTIN

CAME FACE-TO-FACE WITH AN

ANGEL. SHE SHARES HOW THAT

INCREDIBLY ENCOUNTER SAVED HER

FROM CERTAIN DEATH.

WITH CHRISTMAS JUST AROUND

THE CORNER WE'LL LOOK AT

THE BATTLE TO SAVE THE NAME

CHRISTMAS AS RETAILERS PUSH TO

MAKE THIS TIME OF YEAR MORE

GENERIC.

WE'LL ALSO CONTINUE OUR

FASCINATING LOOK AT IMPORTANT

OVERLOOKED HISTORICAL FACTS

HIDDEN IN THE BIBLE, BUT FIRST

THE FIGHT TO KEEP CHRISTMAS.

FOR MANY SHOPPERS THE

CHRISTMAS SEASON MEANS MORE

THAN JUST HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

I'D RATHER HEAR MERRY

CHRISTMAS. THAT'S THE TIME OF SN

IT IS.

I THINK IT SHOULD BE MERRY C.

YOU KNOW

IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY. I

THINK IT MEANS MORE TO PEOPLE

TO, YOU KNOW, RECOGNIZE THAT TID

USE

THE PHRASE OF MERRY CHRISTMAS.

BUT ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY

SOME RETAILERS ARE REPLACING

MERRY CHRISTMAS WITH HAPPY

HOLIDAYS OUT OF FEAR OF

OFFENDING NON-CHRISTIANS. THAT

HAS SOME HOLIDAY SHOPPERS

OUTRAGED.

I ACTUALLY DON'T

PARTICULARLY LIKE IT, THE FACT

THAT THEY'RE NOT ACKNOWLEDGING

CHRISTMAS. IF THEY ARE GOING TOT

FROM

IT THEN THEY SHOULD ACKNOWLEDGE

THAT THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE ARE

PROFITING FROM.

MANY TIMES IT'S CHRISTIANS

WHO ARE LEADING THE FIGHT.

I THINK IT IS THE WORK OF THE

CHURCH, IT IS OUR GOD-GIVEN

CALLING, TO FIGHT BACK AND TO

SAY THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE

IT ANYMORE.

THIS NORTH CAROLINA PASTOR

HAS MADE A LIST AND HE'S CHECKIT

TWICE, SINGLING OUT STORES WHERE

MERRY CHRISTMAS IS EXCLUDED.

IN THIS AREA, WALMART,

TARGET, HOME DEPOT, STORES LIKE

THAT.

ALSO ON PASTOR PATRICK WOODE)

NAUGHTY LIST OF OFFENDERS COMPAT

REFUSE

TO MENTION CHRISTMAS IN THEIR

ADVERTISING: KROGER, OFFICEMAX,

WALGREENS, STAPLES, JCPENNEY,

DELL, AND BEST BUY. PASTOR

WOODEN HAS LAUNCHED A MASSIVE CN

AD

HIMSELF ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO

SHOP AT STORES THAT SAY MERRY

CHRISTMAS INSTEAD OF HAPPY

HOLIDAYS.

WE ARE ENCOURAGING BELIEVERS

TO REWARD THOSE BUSINESSES THAT

DISPLAY MERRY CHRISTMAS WITH

THEIR SHOPPING DOLLARS.

WOODEN'S MEDIA BLITZ INCLUDES

TELEVISION, RADIO, AND

NEWSPAPER ADS. HE SAYS HE'S

CONDUCTING THE CAMPAIGN BECAUSE

TOO MANY RETAILERS ARE TRYING

TO MAKE CHRISTMAS MONEY WITHOUT

ACKNOWLEDGING CHRISTMAS.

THEY HAVE A PLATFORM THAT

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND CELEBRATING

CHRIST GAVE THEM, SO NOW THAT

THEY'VE EXTRACTED CHRIST FROM

IT I BELIEVE THAT ONE OR TWO

THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN.

THERE ARE DOING TO EITHER ALLOWT

TO ATTEND HIS OWN BIRTHDAY

PARTY AGAIN OR THEY ARE GOING TO

HAVE THE PARTY WITHOUT THE

CHRISTIAN BUYING PUBLIC AND 96%

OF AMERICANS CELEBRATE

CHRISTMAS. THAT'S A BIG NUMBER.

WE CONTACTED OUR TARGET STORS

FOR COMMENT. THEY RELEASED THE

FOLLOWING STATEMENT: WE DO NOT

HAVE A POLICY THAT DICTATES HOW

OUR TEAM MEMBERS GREET GUESTS.

OUR TEAM MEMBERS ARE ABLE TO

USE THEIR OWN JUDGMENT IN

OFFERING A WELCOME GREETING.

WE ALSO CONTACTED WALMART WHO

TOLD US THEY HAD NO OFFICIAL

POLICY ON HOW EMPLOYEES ARE TO

GREET CUSTOMERS DURING THIS

HOLIDAY SEASON. PASTOR WOODEN

SAYS THEY MAY SEE THAT BUT HE'S

FOUND IT OFTEN DEPENDS ON WHERE

YOU LIVE AND THE POLICY OF THE

LOCAL STORES. BUT EXCLUDING THE

NAME CHRISTMAS IN THE HOLIDAY

HAS BECOME SO WIDESPREAD THAT IT

PROMPTED FOX NEWS CHANNEL'S JOHN

GIBSON TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT IT.

THEY ARE EXPRESSING SUCH A

DEEP-SEATED ANIMOSITY TOWARDS

CHRISTIANS AND CHRISTIANITY

THAT THEY CAN'T EVEN BEAR TO

HEAR THE WORDS, MERRY CHRISTMAS

OR BEAR TO SEE A CHRISTMAS TREE.

GIBSON SAYS MANY OF THE

ATTACKS ARE THE COORDINATED WORF

SECULAR LIBERAL GROUPS.

GROUPS LIKE AMERICANS

UNITED FOR THE SEPARATION OF

CHURCH AND STATE, BARRY LYNN'S

GROUP; THE ACLU IS THE MUSCLE.

BUT MOUNTING PRESSURE FROM

CHRISTIAN CONSUMERS IS MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

THE LOCAL DEALERS OR ONE OF

THEIR REPRESENTATIVES SAID TO

MEÃAND THEY DIDN'T SAY IT TO MEN

OFFICIAL

CAPACITY, BUT THE PERSON SAID

BEFORE THE ADD, THE CAMPAIGN

LAST YEAR, THEIR SALES WERE FLA,

BUT WHEN THEY DISPLAYED MERRY

CHRISTMAS AFTER THE AD CAME OUT

IN THE PAPER THEIR SALES

TRIPLED, AND HE ATTRIBUTED THE

GROWTH IN SALES TO THE CAMPAIGN.

OTHER STORES ARE COMING

BACK TO MERRY CHRISTMAS AS

WELL. AFTER CONSUMER BACKLASH

IN 2004 OVER ITS POLICY

FORBIDDING EMPLOYEES TO WISH

SHOPPERS A MERRY CHRISTMAS,

MACYS IS MAKING SURE ITS NEW

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE IS HEARD.

THEY BOUGHT THIS FULL-PAGE AD

TO MAKE SURE SHOPPERS KNEW.

THOSE SO-CALLED HOLIDAY TREES

AT LOWE'S HOME IMPROVEMENT

STORES WELL, THEY'RE CHRISTMAS

TREES ONCE AGAIN. BUT GIBSON

SAYS THE BATTLE IS FAR FROM

OVER.

IF YOU TAKE THE RELIGION

OUT OF IT THEN SOMEBODY IS

GOING TO BE ABLE TO SAY THERE'S

NO REAL REASON TO HAVE THIS AT

ALL; LET'S JUST MAKE IT ALL GO

AWAY.

AS THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS

RAGES ON SOME RETAILERS MAY END

UP REGRETTING THEIR DECISION TO

BAN THE GREETING MERRY

CHRISTMAS FROM THEIR STORES. IT

TURNS OUT SOME OF AMERICANS

FEEL SO STRONGLY ABOUT THE

PHRASE THEY'VE DECIDED TO SPEND

THEIR CHRISTMAS DOLLARS WHERE

MERRY CHRISTMAS IS STILL IN

SEASON. CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN

NEWS, RALEIGH NORTH, CAROLINA.

[MUSIC]

YOU KNOW THAT SO COOL,

LAURA-LYNN, BECAUSE WHAT PASTOR

WOODEN IS DOING AND WITH THE

ADS ON RADIO AS WELL AS ON

TELEVISION, WE DO HAVE A CHOICE

WHERE WE'RE GOING TO SPEND OUR

MONEY AND AS BELIEVERS BECAUSE

CHRISTMAS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO

US -- AND I LOVE WHAT HE SAID AS

WELL -- THAT WHEN WE LOSE THE

RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE OF THAT

THEN IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME

BEFORE WE REMOVE CHRISTMAS

ALTOGETHER. DID YOU NOTICE HOW -

HE WAS SAYING THAT RETAILERS

LIKE TARGET, WALMART, AS WELL

AS SO MANY OTHERS, HOME DEPOT

WERE JUST SAYING HAPPY HOLIDAYS

BUT LOWE', WHICH THEY HAD THE

HOLIDAY TREE, NOW HAS A

CHRISTMAS TREE AS WELL AS

DILLARDS AND MANY OTHERS THAT

ARE COMING TO THE PLATE AND

RECOGNIZE THAT WE DO HAVE

BUYING POWER. WE DON'T HAVE TO

BE FROTHING AT THE MOUTH WITH

HER EYES DILATED AND JUST LOOKIG

TO BE, JUST CRAZED

MANIACS, BUT WE CAN HAVE A VERYM

PROTEST AND SAY WE WILL SAYÃWE ,

NO

WE WILL NOT BUY UNLESS YOU SAY Y

CHRISTMAS.

MERRY CHRISTMAS. WELL, UP

NEXT CHRISTINE MARTIN'S CAR

DANGLES OFF THE SIDE OF A

BRIDGE WHEN A MYSTERIOUS FIGURE

STEPS IN TO OFFER SOME HELP

CHRISTINE MARTIN LIVED EVERY

GIRL'S DREAM; THE NEWEST CLOTHEE

COOLEST SHOES, AND MONEY TO BUR.

I WAS USED TO HAVING VERY

VERY NICE THINGS AND THINGS

ACTUALLY HAD A HOLD ON ME. IT

WAS A MATTER OF THE THING, AND

THE HOME, AND A NICE CAR, AND TE

COUNTRY CLUB, OR THE YACHTS; OR

DRIVING AROUND IN BEAUTIFUL

THINGS WITH YOUR WINDOWS DOWN SO

PEOPLE COULD SEE YOU.

BUT BEHIND THE COUNTRY

CLUBS AND PRIVILEGED LIFESTYLE,

CHRISTINE WAS LIVING A

NIGHTMARE.

THE MOLESTATION HAPPENED

FROM THE AGES THREE TO THIRTEENO

HAPPENED A VERY LONG TIME OF

MY LIFE. IT WAS FORCEFUL AND

NOT PLEASANT ,YET IT WAS JUST RY

EMBARRASSING AND CONTINUAL,

NONSTOP.

THE ABUSE CAME FROM NOT ONE

BUT TWO MEN IN HER EXTENDED

FAMILY, BUT CHRISTINE NEVER

TOLD A SOUL.

I WAS THIS INNER KID

INSIDE SCREAMING WANTING TO TELL

SOMEBODY, PLEASE HELP ME; BUT I

WAS TOLD DO NOT SAY ANYTHING;

DO NOT TELL YOUR PARENTS;

NO ONE IS TO KNOW. THIS IS OUR

SECRET.

WHILE THE PHYSICAL ABUSE

EVENTUALLY STOPPED THE

EMOTIONAL PAIN ONLY GOT WORSE.

I WAS VERY VERY DAMAGED,

VERY HURTING, VERY BROKEN, LONE,

INSIGNIFICANT. I FELT THAT NO

ONE WANTED ME.

AND JUST WHEN SHE THOUGHT SHE

COULDN'T FEEL ANY LOWER SHE

WAS RAPED AT A PARTY BY A

STRANGER WHEN SHE WAS SIXTEEN.

I HAD THIS HORRIBLE,

DISGUSTING DIRTY FEELING RELIVED

ALL OVER AGAIN, AND THIS

HORRIBLE DARK STILLNESS JUST

CAPTIVATED EVERY PART OF ME. I

SAT IN THE SHOWER ON AN ALMOST I

MADE MYSELF BLEED. YOU KNOW, I D

SO

HARD AND SCRATCHED MY BODY

PULLED MY HAIR AT THE SCALP. I T

WANTED TO GET EVERY PART THAT HD

TOUCHED OFF ME AND AWAY FROM ME.

AS I TOLD ONE GIRLFRIEND, AND SS

LIKE,

OH, YOU BETTER KEEP IT QUIET, YU

KNOW. THIS IS A GOOD SCHOOL AND

YOUR PARENTS AND YOU DON'T WANT

TO MAKE A FUSS. SO I KEPT IT

QUIET.

THEN HER FATHER LOST HIS

CONTRACTING BUSINESS. SHE

COULDN'T HIDE HER PAIN BEHIND A

LAVISH LIFESTYLE. SHE USED

OTHER THINGS, DRUGS, ALCOHOL,

AND PROMISCUITY, TO MASK HER

PAIN.

I DID NOT HAVE ANY VALUE

FOR MYSELF AS A WOMAN. A BODY

WAS JUST, YOU KNOW, THERE'S NO

RESPECT FOR IT. IT'S ALREADY BEN

TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF SO WHY DOES

IT MATTER TO GIVE IT AWAY. I

WOULD DO DRUGS EVERY SINGLE

WEEKEND AND WHENEVER I COULD

ALMOST SEVERAL TIMES

DURING THE WEEK. I WOULD SMOKE

POT. I WOULD GET HIGH. I WOULD

SKIP SCHOOL.

BUT ALL THAT CHANGED ONE DAY

WHEN SHE WAS NINETEEN. SHE HAD N

JOYRIDING WITH A FRIEND.

I LOST CONTROL OF MY CAR

AND MY CAR HAD SPUN IN 360S

FOR ABOUT FIFTY YARDS AND I

REMEMBER MY CAR TEETERING OVER

THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE. I

THOUGHT, OH, MY GOD I'M GONNA DE

WITH THE FISH. YOU KNOW, I DIDNK

ABOUT CLOTHES. I DIDN'T THINK AT

PEOPLE.

I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT FAMILY. I T

AND SAID,

DEAR GOD, PLEASE, RESCUE ME.

THAT'S ALL I REMEMBER UTTERING

AND I REMEMBER AS MY CAR WAS ON

FIRE TEETERING OVER THIS BRIDGE

A HUGE -- I KNOW IT WAS AN ANGEC

PRESENTS ABOUT FIVE STORIES

TALL; MASSIVE; WIDE IN STATURE;

JUST STRONG AND GREAT; TOOK

MY CAR AND IT WAS LIKE THESE

HANDS ALMOST SWOOPED DOWN LIKE

THIS AND TOOK MY CAR AND

TEETERED IT RIGHT OFF THE

BRIDGE ONTO THE GRASS. MY CAR

DOOR FLUNG OPEN AND I JUST

REMEMBER ROLLING OUT AND LAYING

ON THE GRASS.

WHILE SHE WAS THERE SHE

THOUGHT ABOUT THE ANGEL THAT

SET HER CAR TO SAFETY. THEN SHE

REMEMBERED GOING TO CHURCH AS A

CHILD AND KNEW IT WAS FINALLY

TIME TO GIVE HER HEART TO JESUS.

THERE WAS THIS UNCOMMON

PEACE THAT I HAD NOT EVER KNOWN

THAT HAD COME OVER MY BODY AND

SWEPT OVER MY SOUL AND I FELT

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE

THAT I WAS VALUABLE, THAT

SOMEONE CARED ABOUT THIS GIRL,

THAT I WAS GOING TO BE OKAY AND

THAT DAY RADICALLY TRANSFORMED

MY LIFE AND IT'S LIKE I FELL IN

LOVE WITH THIS JESUS THAT

EVERYONE HAD TALKED ABOUT BUT I

HAD NEVER KNOWN. HE BECAME SO

REAL TO ME ON THAT PARTICULAR

DAY JUST AS REAL AS I'M TALKING

ABOUT HIM NOW THAT I KNEW THAT

ALL THE PAIN AND ALL THE

TRAGEDY AND EVERYTHING THAT I

HAD GONE THROUGH YOU KNOW MAYBE

WAS NOT IN VAIN BECAUSE AT NINEN

THERE WAS STILL A PURPOSE FOR

MY LIFE AND I WASN'T GOING TO BE

SOME WASHED-UP DRUGGIE, YOU

KNOW, WHISKING LIFE AWAY AND USG

PEOPLE TO REST OF HER LIFE.

CHRISTINE IS MARRIED NOW

AND HAS A WONDERFUL SON,

SOLOMON. SHE AND HER HUSBAND

LOVE TO SHARE WHAT CHRIST HAS

DONE IN THEIR LIVES.

MY LIFE IS AMAZING. I

KNOW IT'S BECAUSE I KNOW WHO I

AM IN CHRIST; THAT JESUS HAS

BECOME LITERALLY MY FRIEND. HE

IS SO REAL TO ME. HE IS THE

FIBER OF WHY I DO WHAT I DO.

WHY I BREATH; WHY I LIVE; WHY I

EXIST. IT IS ALL BECAUSE GOD

SHOWED ME GRACE.

YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE ABOUT

CHRISTINE IS SHE FELT LIKE SHE

WAS JUST DOOMED TO FAILURE. I

REALLY BELIEVE BECAUSE SHE HAD H

A POWERFUL CALL ON HER LIFE

THAT THE ENEMY OF HER SOUL, THE

ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN, WANTED

TO DESTROY HER. SHE WAS

VIOLATED AT A YOUNG AGE BY

THOSE THAT SHE TRUSTED MOST.

NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT KEPT

GOING. AT SIXTEEN AGAIN SHE FELE

TRAUMA OF RAPE. SHE WANTED

SCRUB HER SKIN OFF AND THEN

SHE FELT LIKE SHE WAS GOING TO E

A DRUGGIE AND JUST LIVE A LIFE

OF TOTALÃSHE SAID SHE FELT NO V,

NO

WORTH. MANY TIMES PEOPLE WHO

FEEL NO VALUE OR WORTH ACTUALLY

LIVE THAT WAY AS WELL;

CARELESSLY. PROVERBS SAYS IT TH,

28:18

WHERE THERE'S NO VISION PEOPLE

PERISH. THEY CAST OFF

RESTRAINTS. IT WAS UNTIL HER

LIFE WAS DANGLING OVER THAT

CLIFF AND SHE SAID IT WAS SO

BIG. YOU HEARD WHAT SHE SAID.

THAT ANGEL TOOK THE CAR, TURNED

IT AROUND, BUT I BELIEVE HE ALSO

PLANTED HER FEET ON SOLID GROUND

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON SHE

REMEMBERED THE GOD OF HER

CHILDHOOD AND NOW SHE KNEW SHE

HAD VALUE. I LOVE WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS, WHERE THE SPIRIT OF

THE LORD IS, SECOND CORINTHIANS,

CHAPTER 3 VERSE 17, THERE

IS LIBERTY. THERE IS LIBERTY.

THERE IS FREEDOM FOR YOU TODAY.

LAURA-LYNN.

BRIAN, THAT IS SO GOOD. YOU

KNOW, AS YOU WERE JUST TALKING

ABOUT THAT I KNOW THAT THERE'S

SOMEBODY SITTING THERE RIGHT

NOW AND YOU ARE SAYING,

EVERYTHING BRIAN WAS JUST

SAYING ABOUT HOW THAT WOMAN WAS

FEELING, THAT IS WHAT YOU

ARE EXPERIENCING, THE

DIMINISHMENT OF YOUR SPIRIT AND

SOUL. YOU WERE CREATED IN GOD'S

IMAGE. YOU ARE AN IMAGE BEARER

OF THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LOD

OF LORDS. THAT IS NO SMALL

FEAT. I ASK YOU TODAY, WOULD

YOU JUST LAY EVERYTHING BEFORE

HIM. WOULD YOU ASK THE GOD OF

HEAVEN TO COME INTO THE VERY

ROOM THAT YOU ARE IN RIGHT NOW.

WOULD YOU ASK HIM TO JUST BEGIN

TO SEEP OVER YOU AND TO FILL ALL

OF THOSE CRACKS; ALL THE BROKEN

PLACES; ALL THAT EMPTINESS AND

REJECTION THAT YOU HAVE FELT.

THE WOMAN OUT THERE WHO HAS

BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED AND YOU

KNOW THAT -- YOU DON'T KNOW HOWO

GET RID OF THOSE CARS. FOR THATN

OUT THERE YOU'VE SPENT TIME

INCARCERATED. YOU DON'T KNOW HOT

RID OF THE SHAME FOR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE. CAN I TELL YOU

SOMETHING. THERE IS A GOD. HE

LOVES YOU, AND HE IS PREPARED TY

AT THE BECKONING OF YOUR CALL.

YOU NEED TO SUBMIT AND

SURRENDER. WHEN YOU SURRENDER

TO HIM YOU SAY, JESUS, TAKE

FULL CONTROL. TAKE THIS SHAME.

REPLACE IT WITH YOUR GLORY.

REPLACE IT WITH YOUR POWER. GOD

IS WILLING AND ABLE TO DO THAT

FOR YOU TODAY. ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS ASK.

THAT'S ALL WE ARE GOING TO AO

DO.

I'M NOT GOING TO EMBARRASS YOU.T

I KNOW LIKE A LOT OF MEN EVEN

LIKE MYSELF YOU ARE A POCKET PU.

YOU STAND UP AND YOU STAND AT TE

RIGHT TIME BUT YOU ARE WAITING

FOR THE MOMENT. THIS IS THE

MOMENT RIGHT OUT. I WANT TO

REMIND YOU AGAIN, TAKE OUT A

PIECE OF PAPER AND I WANT YOU TO

WRITE THIS DATE DOWN AND THEN

RIGHT ON YOUR PAPER, I ACCEPT.

THAT'S ALL I WANT YOU TO DO.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU WRITE THAT

IT'S GOING TO BE AN ACT OF YOUR

WILL AND YOU'RE GIVING GOD

YOUR PERSONAL PERMISSION FOR

HIS HEAVENLY INTERVENTION. PRAY

THIS PRAYER. JESUS, I AM A

SINNER. I CONFESS MY SIN. AS

I WRITE THIS DOWN AS AN ACT OF Y

WILL MAKE ME WHAT YOU WANT ME

TO BE. IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYED THAT

WITH BRIAN WOULD YOU GIVE US A

CALL AT 1-855-759-0700.

OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY.

AMEN

[COMMERCIAL]

TOO OFTEN WE

CARRY BAGGAGE FROM OUR PAST.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE. IT

AFFECTS EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE

IN OUR LIVES. IT'S ALWAYS

THERE WEIGHING US DOWN AND

KEEPING US FROM ACHIEVING TRUE

HAPPINESS, BUT DO YOU KNOW GOD

NEVER MEANT FOR US TO BE TRAPPED

IN THE PAST. YOU CAN BE FREE OF

YOUR BAGGAGE. LEARN HOW

GOD'S FORGIVENESS LEADS TO

CHANGED LIVES AND NEW BEGINNING.

CALL THE 700 CLUB.

[MUSIC]

GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO A

GREAT WORK IN YOUR LIFE'S

JOURNEY. ALONG THE WAY YOU'LL

COME UP AGAINST MANY CHALLENGES

THAT WILL ATTEMPT TO OVERTHROW

AND DERAIL YOUR PURPOSE. ONE OF

THE GREATEST OBSTACLES THAT YOU

MAY NEED TO OVERCOME IS GETTING

YOURSELF OUT OF THE WAY AND

UNDERSTANDING THAT IT IS TRULY

GOD'S WORK, AND NOT YOURS, THAT

IS GOING TO BRING IT ABOUT. IT

IS HE WHO WILL ACCOMPLISH IT

AND NOT YOUR OWN STRENGTH. IN

THE BOOK OF ZACHARIAH THE JEWS

WERE REBUILDING THE TEMPLE AND

THEY HAD RUN INTO SOME TERRIBLE

OBSTACLES AND FRUSTRATIONS. IN

ZACHARIAH 4:6 GOD HAD TO MAKE IT

VERY CLEAR HOW HIS PLANS WOULD

COME TO PASS. IT SAYS THERE,

NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT

BY MY SPIRIT SAYS THE LORD OF

HOSTS. IT IS EASY TO RUN AHEAD

OF GOD'S TIMING AND TRY TO MAKE

THINGS HAPPEN IN YOUR OWN

ABILITY. HAVE YOU EVER DONE THA?

IN OUR NATURAL MINDS WE CAN SEE

CERTAIN STEPS THAT WE THINK WE

COULD TAKE TO KIND OF HELP GOD

ALONG IN BRINGING ABOUT OUR

DESTINY. BUT GOD, HE WANTS YOU

TO BE SO IN TUNE WITH HIS

VOICE AND HIS WILL THAT YOU LET

HIS SPIRIT GUIDE THE WAY AND

STOP TRYING TO USE YOUR OWN

ABILITY TO BRING SUCCESS. YOU

KNOW, MANY YEARS AGO I KNEW

THERE WAS A CALL IN MY LIFE BUT

IT SEEMED LIKE GOD WASN'T DOING

ANYTHING ABOUT ENLARGING MY

TERRITORY. HE WAS JUST LETTING

ME SIT THERE. IN FACT, I HAD

BEEN RELIEVED FROM A JOB THAT I

BELIEVED WOULD BE THE PATHWAY TO

MY DESTINY. I THEN BEGAN TRYING

TO OPEN DOORS THAT GOD HAD

CLEARLY SHUT. I THOUGHT I

NEEDED TO USE MY OWN POWER, MY

KNOWLEDGE, CONTACTS, TALENTS,

MY ABILITIES TO HELP GOD OUT

WHERE HE SEEMED TO BE FALLING

SHORT. THAT WAS REALLY

REALLY LAUGHABLE. I HAD INVITED

GOD TO BE AT THE HELM OF MY

LIFE'S SHIP AND YET WHEN I

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE COURSE

THAT WE WERE TAKING, I TRIED TO

TAKE IT OVER. PSALMS 46:10 SAYS-

I LOVE THIS VERSE. I LOVE IT

BE STILL, JUST BE STILL AND

KNOW THAT I AM GOD. THE BEST

THAT YOU CAN DO IS SURRENDER

EVERY SINGLE DAY AND MOMENT TO

GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT KNOWS WHO

YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU ARE

SUPPOSED TO BE. HE WILL OPEN

THE DOORS THAT NEED TO BE

OPENED AND IF A DOOR IS SHUT

THERE IS GOOD REASON FOR IT.

YOU BEST NOT TRY TO KICK IT IN.

YOU CANNOT BREAK AND ENTER INTO

YOUR DESTINY. GOD WILL HAND IT

TO YOU ON A PLATTER IN HIS TIME,

BY HIS POWER, WHEN THE

APPOINTED SEASON HAS COME.

LEARNING TO REST IN THE LORD IS

A CRUCIAL SKILL AND IT IS AN

ACT OF FAITH TO TRUST GOD AND

LEAN INTO HIM. AND WHEN GOD

SEES THAT HE IS MORE IMPORTANT

TO YOU THAN THE ACHIEVEMENT

THAT YOU SO DESPERATELY WANT HE

WILL MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF TO

OPEN DOORS THAT YOU COULD NEVER

HAVE OPENED ON YOUR OWN. WHEN

GOD DOES THIS IT WILL

ABSOLUTELY LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS

AND IN AWE OF HIS POWER. TO

BRING ABOUT MORE THAN YOU

IMAGINED COULD EVER BE.

YOU KNOW, GOD HAS SO MUCH

MORE FOR YOU. CAN I GIVE YOU A

SECRET? LONG SUFFERING,

SUFFERING LONG, GOING THROUGH

SOMETHING LONG, IF YOU DON'T

GIVE UP IS THE PRINCIPAL OF

MIRACLES. LET ME GIVE YOU ANOTHR

SECRET. GOD GIVES GRACE TO THE

HUMBLE. WHEN YOU HUMBLE

YOURSELF GOD SAYS, IF YOU

HUMBLE YOURSELF HE

WILL HONOR YOU BECAUSE HUMILITY

COMES BEFORE HONOR. WHEN YOU

GET HUMILITY YOU CAN RECEIVE

EVERY OTHER GIFT FROM GOD.

THAT'S WHY YOU CAN'T SHOEHORN

GOD INTO YOUR PURPOSES AND PLAN.

IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH THAT

IT'S TIME TO DIE. DIE TO

SELF, AND COME ALIVE TO CHRIST.U

NEED HELP CALL THE NUMBER ON

THE SCREEN, 1-855-759-0700.

WELL, UP NEXT, ANOTHER EPISODE F

DIGGING AND FINDING THE HIDDEN

TRUTHS OF THE BIBLE WITH JOE

AMARAL.

IF I WERE TO ASK YOU TODAY

TO NAME OFF ALL SEVEN FEASTS OFE

LORD WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO DO

IT? PROBABLY NOT. MANY OF US KNW

ABOUT PASSOVER. SOME OF US HAVED

ABOUT THE

FEAST OF TABERNACLES , AND A LOT

OF US HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE FEASF

PENTECOST. AS A PENTECOSTAL I

KNOW ABOUT THAT FEAST. BUT HOW

MUCH DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE

FEAST? WHAT DOES IT ACTUALLY

REPRESENT? WAS IT ABOUT THE

FIRE FALLING AND PEOPLE SPEAKING

IN TONGUES? WAS IT ABOUT PEOPLE

GETTING SAVED? WHAT WAS THE

FEAST OF PENTECOST ALL ABOUT?

WELL THE FIRST THING YOU NEED

TO KNOW IS THAT THE FEAST OF

PENTECOST THAT'S DESCRIBED IN

THE NEW TESTAMENT IN THE BOOK OS

IS ACTUALLY NOT THE FIRST

PENTECOST. NOW A LOT OF YOU ARE

SURPRISED RIGHT NOW AND YOU ARE

SAYING, WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS WHN

THE DAY OF PENTECOST HAD FULLY .

BUT WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT

PENTECOST WAS A FEAST THAT TOOK

PLACE AT THE MOUNTAIN WHERE GOD

GAVE ISRAEL THE TEN COMMITMENTS,

WHERE HE GAVE THEM THE LAW.

PENTA MEANING FIVE. FIFTY DAYS R

PASSOVER AS GOD DELIVERED THE

ISRAELITES FROM THE HANDS OF

THE EGYPTIANS, GOD GAVE THEM THE

LAW THERE AT MOUNT SINAI. SO FRT

DAY FORWARD THE JEWISH PEOPLE

HAVE CELEBRATED PENTECOST AS

THE DAY THAT THEY GOT THE LAW.

NOW I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOME

FACTS. I CALLED THEM PENTECOST

FACTS; NOT PENTECOSTAL FACTS, BT

PENTECOST. IT'S VERY

INTERESTING THAT BOTH IN EXODUS

AND IN ACTS, GOD RECORDS

THERE VERY VERY SPECIFIC

NUMBERS AND A LOT OF TIMES WE

DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THOSE

NUMBERS ARE THERE. LOOK HERE IN

EXODUS, CHAPTER 32 VERSE 28. IT

SAYS THE LEVITES DID AS MOSES

COMMANDED AND THAT DAY -- LOOK

CAREFULLY -- THREE THOUSAND OF E

PEOPLE DIED. NOT ABOUT, NOT

AROUND, BUT ON THE DAY, ON THE

VERY FIRST PENTECOST WHEN THE

LAW WAS GIVEN ON TABLETS OF

STONE, 3000 PEOPLE WERE PUT TO

DEATH. NOW FAST FORWARD TO THE

NEW TESTAMENT AND WE GET TO THE

BOOK OF ACTS, CHAPTER 2 VERSE

31. LOOK WHAT IT SAYS THERE.

THOSE WHO ACCEPTED HIS MESSAGE

WERE BAPTIZED AND ABOUT 3000

WERE ADDEDÃHOW MANY-- 3000 WERE

ADDED TO THEIR NUMBER THAT DAY.

NOW IS THAT JUST A COINCIDENCE ?

WAS THAT JUST SOME RANDOM

NUMBER THAT THEY THREW OUT?

NO. IN THE FIRST TIME PENTECOST

HAPPENED IT WAS THE SPIRIT OF

THE LAW, THE LETTER OF THE LAW,T

3000 WERE PUT TO DEATH BUT

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WHEN THE

HOLY SPIRIT CAME TO TAKE THE

LAW FROM TABLETS OF STONE AND

HE CAME TO WRITE THEM IN THEIR

HEARTS, THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW

BRINGS LIFE AND 3000 WERE SAVED

THAT DAY. YOU SEE, IT WAS A

PILGRIM FEAST. JERUSALEM, -- ALL

THE WORLD HAD TO GO TO

JERUSALEM TO CELEBRATE THE

FESTIVAL, AND AS THEY WERE COMIG

OUT OF TEMPLE THEY WERE REMEMBEG

THAT ONE DAY GOD WAS GOING TO GM

THE

LAW . HE WAS GOING TO PUT IT INR

HEARTS

AND AS THE MEN WERE GATHERED IN

THE UPPER ROOM THEY CAME UP AND

PETER BEGAN TO PREACH AND ALL

THOSE MEN FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD HAD GATHERED TO CELEBRATE

THE FEAST AND SO GOD TODAYÃIT'S

NOT ABOUT BEING PENTECOSTAL BUT

IT'S ABOUT BEING A PENTECOST

CHRISTIAN. TAKING THE LAW FROM

TABLETS OF STONE AND MAKING

THEM ALIVE BY LETTING GOD WRITEN

OUR HEARTS.

THANK YOU, JOE. YOU KNOW

LAURA-LYNN, I MEAN, WHEN YOU LOK

AT PENTECOST YOU'LL NEVER LOOK T

IT THE SAME WAY AGAIN. I HOPE

YOU'RE ENJOYING THIS.
