Watch the 700 Club Canada for January 1, 2013. Read Transcript


HELLO. I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

LAURA LYNN, I AM SO EXCITED

I KNOW.

THAT THIS IS 2013.

YEAH.

OWWW YEAH. WHAT ARE YOU

LOOKING FORWARD TO?

OW YEAH.

YEAH. I ALMOST WANTED TO SAY

IT LIKE, OW YEAH. SO IT'S LIKE,

BOOYAH AND IT'S LIKE, OW YEAH.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW 2012 IS GONE;

2013 IS HERE. SO,

I'M LOOKING FOR A LOT OF

A LOT OF THINGS HAPPENING. WHAT

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR MOST IN

2013?

I HAVE MADE A NEW YEAR'S

RESOLUTION TO TRY TO BE NEATER

AND TIDIER.

OWWW.

SOMETIMES I GET A LOT OF

MAKEUP ON MY HANDS, YOU KNOW,

BECAUSE --

YEAH, AND SOMETIMES YOU PUT

THIS PINK BIBLE ON THIS SIDE A

LITTLE BIT TOO FAR.

I KNOW. YOU DO NOT LIKE MY

PINK BIBLE ON YOUR SIDE.

YOU LIKE THE PINK BIBLE TO BE ON

ON THE PINK SIDE.

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING WITH

PINK, BUT I LIKE SALMON,

A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN I DO

PINK.

SALMON, YEAH. SO I WOULD LIKE

TO BE NEATER, BRIAN, BECAUSE

I TEND TO

LEAVE STUFF LYING AROUND. I GET

SHE'S RIGHT.

YOU KNOW MY MAKEUP ON, MY

MY LAPTOP. IT'S ALWAYS --

EVERYONE IS LIKE ERR. YOU KNOW

TODD

OUR SENIOR PRODUCER IS JUST

LIKE, DO NOT COME NEAR ME WITH

THOSE HANDS, AND I NEED TO DO

SOMETHING.

LAURA-LYNN, I HAVE NOTICED

YOU HAVE -- YOU HAVE THIS GREAT

ABILITY TO JUST SPREAD OUT

I DO. MY STUFF SPREADS. I

DON'T KNOW WHY.

YEAH, IT SPREADS.

LIKE I PUT STUFF DOWN AND

IT JUST GROWS.

I SEE IT AS A GIFT.

I HAVE ASKED THE LORD TO,IN

2013, SIMPLIFY MY LIFE.

I AM BELIEVING FOR THAT.

THIS YEAR I'M LOOKING

FORWARD TO HEARING MORE MIRACLES

COMING OUT OF YOUR LIFE AND

SALVATION IN THIS COUNTRY. NO

MATTER WHAT 2013 IS LIKE FOR YOU

WE HOPE THIS SHOW WILL BRING

YOU NEW HOPE FOR THE YEAR AHEAD

CHARLOTTE HUNT SHARES HOW

GOD WAS ABLE TO MAKE A

MASTERPIECE OUT HER SHATTERED

SELF-IMAGE. HER STORY WILL SHOW

YOU THAT NO ONE'S LIFE IS TOO

FAR GONE FOR GOD TO REDEEM.

ALSO, TODAY WE'LL TAKE

ANOTHER LOOK, A FASCINATING LOOK

AT THE HIDDEN TRUTHS IN THE

BIBLE. NOW, JOE AMARAL EXPLAINS

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SOME OFTEN

OVERLOOKED SCRIPTURES.

BUT FIRST AS THE NEW YEAR

BEGINS AND THE RESOLUTIONS KICK

IN, WE'VE GOT SOME STARTLING

FACTS ABOUT BELLY FAT THAT

SHOULD KICKSTART YOUR NEW YEAR'S

HEALTH KICK.

YET HAD TO START OFF THERE.

THAT WAS A MOUTHFUL.

YOU HAD TO GO THERE, YEAH.

DID YOU KNOW WE CARRY

TWO KINDS OF FAT?

SURPRISINGLY, THE JIGGLY

BLUBBER THAT YOU SEE IN BATHING

SUIT PICTURES IS THE SAFER

KIND. IT'S KNOWN AS

SUBCUTANEOUS FAT. IT'S RIGHT

UNDER THE SKIN. THE REALLY

DANGEROUS FAT HIDES DEEP

INSIDE MIDSECTION PRESSING UP

AGAINST VITAL ORGANS LIKE THE

HEART, LIVER, AND LUNGS. IT'S

CALLED VISCERAL FAT, ALSO KNOWN

AS BELLY FAT.

AS YOU BECOME OBESE AND

GAIN WEIGHT, AS YOU GET OLDER,

YOU START TO GAIN MORE VISCERAL

FAT.

DR. DAVID LIEB LED A STUDY

AT EASTERN VIRGINIA MEDICAL

SCHOOL COMPARING THE TWO TYPES

OF FAT.

IT'S THE VISCERAL FAT

THAT'S REALLY ASSOCIATED WITH

INFLAMMATION, WITH

INCREASED RISK FOR HEART

DISEASE, INCREASED RISK FOR

DIABETES, AND OTHER THINGS LIKE

HYBRID PRESSURE AND HIGH

CHOLESTEROL. SO YOU DON'T HAVE

A WHOLE LOT OF SUBCUTANEOUS FAT

EITHER, BUT, IN GENERAL,

SUBCUTANEOUS FAT IS PROBABLY

THE LESS INFLAMMATORY, THE MORE

HEALTHY, OF THE TWO DEPOS

OR TWO TYPES OF FAT.

THIS SO-CALLED BELLY FAT CAN

LEAD TO HEART ATTACKS, CANCER,

STROKES, AND EVEN DEMENTIA.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS DIFFICULT TO

SEE WHETHER WE HAVE TOO MUCH FAT

DEEP IN OUR BELLY THERE IS AN AT

HOME TEST TO CHECK FOR IT. JUST

GET ONE OF THESE AND MEASURE

AROUND YOUR WAIST.

WOMEN HIT THE DANGER ZONE

AT MORE THAN 35 INCHES. FOR

MEN IT IS 40 INCHES. THE GOOD

NEWS: YOU HAVE THE POWER TO

CHANGE IT.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOU HAVE

TO PUT THE TIME IN.

JAMIE DOCKOWITZ KNOWS

ALL ABOUT GETTING RID OF BELLY

FAT. SHE RECOMMENDS A FOUR

PRONGED ATTACK STARTING WITH THE

DIET.

YOU REALLY WANT TO TRY AND

STAY AWAY FROM REFINED AND

PROCESSED FOODS; THINGS THAT

ARE FOUND IN BOXES AND

PACKAGES; CERTAINLY SUGARY

FOODS.

THEN TURN ON THE BURN.

ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO TRY

AND GET RID OF THAT BODY FAT IS

TO JUST TO SIMPLY GET MOVING.

YOUR AEROBIC EXERCISE IN WHICH

YOU ARE GETTING THAT HEART RATE

UP, WORKING INTO THAT SWEAT.

THEN LIFT WEIGHTS TO SPEED

UP YOUR METABOLISM.

THE MORE MUSCLE YOU HAVE

THE MORE CALORIES YOU ACTUALLY

BURN EVEN AT REST.

AND MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR

ZZZ'S TO KEEP THOSE STRESS

HORMONES AT BAY.

WHEN THOSE CORTISOL LEVELS

GET HIGH, WHEN YOU'RE NOT

GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP, THAT ALSO

CONTRIBUTES TO YOUR BELLY FAT

AS WELL.

BETTY BROTHERS FOLLOWS THE

PROGRAM TO THE LETTER.

I EAT MOSTLY CHICKEN AND

FISH. I EAT A LOT OF FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES. NO DESSERTS. I RUN

FIVE TIMES A WEEK WHICH

AVERAGES 52 MILES A WEEK, AND I

I WORK OUT AT THE

GYM THREE DAYS A WEEK.

THIS GREAT-GRANDMOTHER

STAYS IN FAR BETTER SHAPE THAN

MOST PEOPLE HER AGE.

I SEE IT EVERY DAY AND EVEN

SOME OF MY CLASSMATES. THEY ARE

SO OBESE, AND THEY HAVE ALL

KINDS OF HEALTH ISSUES. THEY ARE

ON ARE ALL KINDS OF MEDICATION.

IT'S JUST SO SAD.

SHE SPENDS PRACTICALLY

NOTHING ON HEALTHCARE, LIMITING

DOCTOR VISITS TO REGULAR

CHECKUPS, AND HER ONLY PILL IS A

MULTIVITAMIN.

JUST THINK HOW MUCH MONEY

THE INSURANCE COMPANIES COULD

SAVE AND THE INDIVIDUALS IF THEY

WOULD JUST TRY TO TAKE CARE OF

THEMSELVES SOME MORE.

IF THE NATURAL APPROACH

ISN'T ENOUGH TO GET RID OF

BELLY FAT, SOME DOCTORS

RECOMMEND BARIATRIC SURGERY.

YOU TAKE THE INTESTINE AND

YOU ALTER THE ANATOMY OF THE

INTESTINE IN THE STOMACH. SO

PEOPLE MAY NOT ABSORB AS MANY

CALORIES AS THEY WERE BEFORE

AND THEY TEND TO LOSE WEIGHT.

SO CUT THAT BELLY FAT DOWN

TO SIZE. IT'S AN INVESTMENT

THAT COULD ADD YEARS TO YOUR

LIFE.

I JUST TRY TO EAT HEALTHY

AND TAKE CARE OF MYSELF. I WANT

TO BE AROUND TO SEE THIS GREAT

GRANDCHILD GROWN UP.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

[MUSIC]

WELL, YOU KNOW LAURA-LYNN

THAT ALSO GIVES US A LOT OF

INCENTIVES TO GET OUR P90X OUT.

ALSO OUR INSANITY TAPES AS WELL

AS TO GET THAT GYM MEMBERSHIP

AND THIS TIME TO KEEP IT.

YES. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE

NOTICED ABOUT YOU, BRIAN, IS

THAT YOU DON'T HAVE MUCH

BELLYFAT.

WELL, I APPRECIATE THAT.

I MEAN I DON'T KNOW YOU'RE

HIDING IT OR IF YOU'VE GOT ONE

OF THEM GIRDLES THINGS ON.

WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT,

EVERYBODY SEES ON TELEVISION

RIGHT NOW NO: BELLY FAT.

YOU DON'T GOT NO BELLY FAT.

I LIKE THAT.

YOU KNOW WHAT, I RECOGNIZE

WITH MEN, ESPECIALLY, YOU KNOW

THE WAY WE CARRY STRESS, IT

USUALLY COMES BECAUSE OF

AN INCREASE OF CORTISOL. YOU

SAW THE UNHEALTHY PART OF THE

FAT THAT --

YES.

THAT GETS AROUND YOUR

ORGANS. I THINK IT IS SO

IMPORTANT FOR US, ESPECIALLY AS

WE AGE, TO KEEP THAT OFF OF OUR

LIVES.

YES, AND THAT'S WHY I HAVE

STARTED WEARING THOSE, YOU KNOW,

OH, YOU DO GOOD.

LARGER UNDERWEAR THAT STARTS

JUST ABOVE THE KNEE --

YOU HAD TO GO THERE.

AND GOES ALL THE WAY UP

AND IT'S VERY HELPFUL.

THAT WAS WRONG ON EVERY

LEVEL.

EVERY WOMAN KNOWS WHAT I'M

TALKING ABOUT. WELL, UP NEXT

CHARLOTTE HUNT SHARES WHY SHE

TRIED TO TAKE HER LIFE AND HOW

GOD GAVE HER HER LIFE BACK.

I'VE KIND OF ALWAYS HAD

THAT FEELING, THAT FEELING LIKE

I WAS DAMAGED GOODS; THAT I WAS

WORTHLESS. MY CHILDHOOD STARTED

OUT PRETTY ROUGH. I WAS

SEXUALLY ABUSED BY FIVE MEMBERS

OF MY FAMILY AND TWO

NEIGHBORHOOD BOYS, AND I WAS

PHYSICALLY ABUSED BY MY MOTHER

AND EMOTIONALLY ABUSED. I

STILL HAVE THAT FEELING THAT

SOMETHING, SOMETHING IS WRONG

WITH ME. YOU KNOW, WE

WE WENT TO CHURCH. BUT I

KNEW THE FAMILY THAT I SAW AT

CHURCH WASN'T THE FAMILY THAT I

WAS LIVING WITH AT HOME. IT WAS

JUST THE PLACE THAT YOU GO AND

YOU PRETEND. I LEARNED THAT AND

I JUST CARRIED THAT ON, YOU KNOW

THROUGH MOST OF MY LIFE. I GOT

INTO THEATER, AND THE ARTS, AND

MUSIC REALLY EARLY WHICH, FOR

ME, GAVE ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO

BE ABLE TO ESCAPE. YOU KNOW, I

CAN PRETEND; ONSTAGE I COULD BE

ANYBODY THAT I WANTED TO BE. I

COULD ACT AND THEN I FOUND OUT,

WOW, I COULD BE SOMEBODY THAT I

WANTED TO BE OFF STAGE. I COULD

PRETEND TO BE A GOOD GIRL. I

COULD PRETEND TO BE STRONG. BY

PERFORMING I COULD BE

LOVED. BEFORE I GOT INTO

COLLEGE I WAS IN JAZZ; I WAS

DOING JAZZ CLUBS. I GOT INTO

MUSICAL THEATER, TALENT SHOWS,

AND COMMUNITY CARE. I GOT

DISCOVERED WITH MODELING AND

GOT INTO THAT VERY EARLY. I WAS

DOING ALL THESE THINGS. I WAS

GETTING WORTH. I WAS GETTING

ACCEPTANCE, BUT THE PROBLEM WAS

PROBLEM WAS IT WASN'T ENOUGH.

YOU KNOW, IT WAS LIKE THIS DRUG

BUT I KEPT NEEDING MORE. AND SO

I GOT INTO THE MEN, A LOT OF

MEN. YOU KNOW, AND TRY TO FIND

LOVE BUT THEN I WAS FINDING

THAT THERE WEREN'T ENOUGH MEN.

THAT WERE FILLING THAT UP.

THERE WAS STILL THAT EMPTINESS.

I REMEMBER GOING TO A PASTOR

AND I JUST HAD SOME QUESTIONS

AND HIS REPLY TO ME WAS,

CHARLOTTE, I KNOW A LITTLE BIT

ABOUT YOUR FAMILY AND I'M SORRY

TO TELL YOU BUT YOUR DAMAGED

GOODS AND GOD IS NEVER GOING TO

USE YOU. YOU KNOW AND I REMEMBER

I HAD TWO SEPARATE FEELINGS.

ONE WAS RELIEF. IT WAS A RELIEF

THAT, OH, FINALLY, I HAVE AN

ANSWER. THAT'S WHAT I AM. I'M

DAMAGED GOODS. THE OTHER

FEELING WAS, I AM FURIOUS. NOT

AT THAT PASTOR. I WAS FURIOUS

WITH GOD. I WAS FURIOUS BECAUSE

IT WAS, UH, ONCE AGAIN YOU, GOD,

JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE, ALL

YOUR ABOUT IS MY PERFORMANCE. AT

THAT POINT THERE WAS A PRISON

WALL UP. AT THAT POINT IT WAS

BLAM. NOBODY WILL GET TO MY

HEART. NOT YOU, NOT

ANYBODY, AND ESPECIALLY NOT

GOD. I STARTED HAVING FEELINGS

OF SUICIDE. SO AFTER SEVEN

TIMES OF TRYING TO COMMIT

SUICIDE I WAS SO ANGRY AT GOD.

I BLAMED HIM FOR THE ABUSE. I

BLAMED HIM FOR WHY MY LIFE

WASN'T WORKING. ON TOP OF ALL

OF THAT HE WASN'T LETTING ME

DIE. THE LEAST, IF HE WAS A

LOVING GOD, AT LEAST, HE COULD

LET ME DIE. THE MORNING THAT I

WOKE UP AFTER A SEVENTH FAILED

SUICIDE ATTEMPT, AFTER TAKING

THE BOTTLE OF SLEEPING PILLS

WITH A NYQUIL CHASER NOT

ONLY DID I WAKE UP, BUT I

DIDN'T EVEN GET A GOOD NIGHT

SLEEP, AND I WAS MAD BECAUSE I

REMEMBER WAKING UP GOING, GOD,

EITHER YOU HAVE GOT TO LET ME

DIE -- EITHER YOU GOT TO LET ME

DIE, OR YOU'VE GOT TO SHOW ME

HOW TO LIVE BECAUSE THIS IS JUST

NOT WORKING. AND THAT WASN'T THE

WAKE-UP CALL FOR GOD BUT THAT

WAS A WAKE-UP CALL FOR ME. I

CAN'T EXPLAIN IT. I DON'T KNOW

IF ANYBODY CAN EXPLAIN WHAT

HAPPENS, BUT SOMETHING HAD

CHANGED IN ME. IT WAS THE

BEGINNING OF A ROAD OF

REDEMPTION FOR ME, AND THAT

ROAD OF REDEMPTION, WOW.

I FOUND THAT THE ONLY PLACE I

WAS ABLE TO FIND MY IDENTITY,

MY HOPE, MY WORTH, MY

ACCEPTANCE, MY LOVE WAS IN

CHRIST. IT WASN'T UNTIL I

REALIZED THAT THAT'S WHERE MY

ONLY HOPE LIED THAT I FOUND MY

WHOLENESS. LEARNING HOW TO

DREAM AGAIN, TO LEARN ABOUT

LOVING AGAIN, OPENING MY HEART

AGAIN, LEARNING HOW TO RECEIVE

AGAIN, TO TAKE DOWN THOSE WALLS

AGAIN. PRAISE GOD, THAT HE HAS

ALLOWED THOSE DAMAGED GOODS TO

BE PLACED IN MY LIFE FOR HIS

GLORY. NONE OF THOSE THINGS

WERE EVER EXCLUSIONS TO HIS

POTENTIAL, TO HIS LOVE, AND TO

HIS PURPOSE IN MY LIFE. MY

STORY IS NOT ABOUT

THE DAMAGE OR THE

DAMAGED GOODS IN MY LIFE. MY

STORY IS ABOUT HOW HE HAS USED

THE DAMAGED THINGS IN MY LIFE.

TO BRING ABOUT HOPE.

WELL, I DON'T KNOW IF ANY OF

YOU OUT THERE CAN RELATE TO

CHARLOTTE BUT I SURE DID. I HAD

A TIME IN MY LIFE WHERE I FELT

LIKE DAMAGED GOODS. I FELT THAT

THE MISTAKES THAT I HAD MADE

WERE SO COSTLY THAT GOD WOULD

NOT BE ABLE TO USE ME. THAT I

WAS DISQUALIFIED FROM THE GIFT

AND THE CALLING THAT HE HAD

ONCE UPON A TIME HAD BURNING IN

MY HEART. BUT HERE IS WHAT THE

WORD SAYS FOR YOU TODAY, AND IF

YOU'RE FEELING THIS WAY, GET A

PEN AND A PIECE OF PAPER AND

WRITE THIS SCRIPTURE DOWN.

SECOND CORINTHIANS 5:17. IT SAYS

THEREFORE, IF ANY PERSON IS

INGRAFTED IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW

CREATION, A NEW CREATURE

ALTOGETHER. THE OLD PREVIOUS

MORAL AND SPIRITUAL CONDITIONS

HAVE PASSED AWAY. BEHOLD, THE

FRESH AND THE NEW HAS COME. DO

YOU KNOW WHAT, JUST LIKE

CHARLOTTE, WHEN YOU RECEIVE

CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE YOU ARE

NO LONGER DISCARDED, DAMAGED,

BROKEN GOODS. YOU ARE A CHILD.

YOU ARE A DAUGHTER AND A SON OF

THE KING OF KINGS. YOU ARE

ROYALTY AND ABLE TO COME RIGHT

BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD. HE IS

THE KING OF KINGS AND HE CALLS

YOU HIS CHILD. YOU'RE NOT

DAMAGED. YOU ARE A NEW CREATION.

WHEN YOU WILL JUST TURN ALL OF

THAT STUFF, THAT MUCK, AND THAT

THAT MESS -- YOU DON'T HAVE TO

END IT LIKE LIKE CHARLOTTE

WANTED TO. SHE FELT

SO BAD SHE COULD NOT

EVEN DIE RIGHT. GOD WANTS TO

TEACH YOU HOW TO LIVE RIGHT AND

IT'S ALL WAITING FOR YOU.

LAURA-LYNN, YOU'RE SO RIGHT.

WHAT LAURA-LYNN HAS BEEN

TALKING ABOUT I THINK IT SO

IMPORTANT THAT YOU EVEN NOW AT

THE BEGINNING OF 2013 BEGIN TO

NOW PRINCIPLE IN YOUR HEART

BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE IT STARTS.

I'D LIKE TO LEAD YOU THROUGH A

PRAYER, AND I GOT SOME

INFORMATION THAT I'D LIKE YOU TO

REQUEST: A NEW DAY. THIS IS YOUR

NEW DAY. BELIEVE THAT. JOHN

10:10 SAYS IT THIS WAY.

HE SAYS, THE ENEMY COMES TO

KILL, STEAL, AND DESTROY BUT

JESUS SAID I CAME THAT YOU

MIGHT HAVE LIFE. THAT'S A NEW

DAY. ARE YOU READY FOR THAT NEW

DAY? THESE ARE THE ABC'S. JUST

ADMIT WHERE YOU ARE. BELIEVE GOD

HAS THAT NEW DAY AND THEN

CONFESS WITH YOUR HEART THAT

JESUS IS LORD, AND

YOU WILL BE SAVED.

COME ON, BOW YOUR HEAD WITH ME.

FATHER, I ASK YOU NOW, LORD,

MERCY, I HAVE SINNED. AND I FEEL

LIKE DAMAGED GOODS. BUT I

RECOGNIZE THAT YOU DON'T MAKE

ANY JUNK SO I BELIEVE YOU. I

CONFESS MY SINS. I TURN FROM

THEM AND I GIVE YOU MY

PERSONAL PERMISSION, COME INTO

MY LIFE. MAKE ME WHAT YOU

WANT ME TO BE. IN JESUS NAME I

PRAY, AMEN.

AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYED

THAT PRAYER WITH BRIAN, WOULD

GIVE US A CALL AT

1-855-759-0700. OPERATORS WOULD

LOVE TO PRAY WITH YOU.

ABUNDANT LIFE STARTS NOW.

[COMMERCIAL]

DADDY.

YEAH, BUDDY.

HOW MANY NICKLES

ARE IN A DOLLAR?

THERE ARE 20 NICKLES IN A

DOLLAR

HOW DO BIRDS FLY? DOES

MILK REALLY MAKE MY BONES

STRONGER?

YEAH, YES.

DADDY, WHEN WE DIE WILL WE

GO TO HEAVEN?

DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO

LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION? CALL

THE 700 CLUB. WE'LL HELP YOU

FIND ANSWERS TO THE IMPORTANT

QUESTIONS LIFE BRINGS YOUR

WAY.

[MUSIC]

HEY, WELCOME TO THIS

HOPE-TO-GO. YOU KNOW IN 2013

I'VE GOT A WORD

FOR YOU. THE LORD REALLY

BURDENED MY SPIRIT IN DECEMBER

WHEN I WAS IN THE PROMISED LAND,

IN ISRAEL. WHEN I WAS ON MOUNT

HERMON, THE SAME PLACE WHERE

JESUS SAID I WILL BUILD

MY CHURCH, WE WERE THERE

AND THE LORD DID SOMETHING SO

MIRACULOUS AND HE REALLY

ILLUMINATED THE 133RD

PSALM AND THIS IS WHAT HE SAYS

THERE. HE SAID, BEHOLD HOW GOOD

AND PLEASANT IT IS FOR BRETHREN

AND TO DWELL TOGETHER IN UNITY.

IT'S LIKE THE OIL POURED ON THE

HEAD OF AARON RUNNING DOWN LIKE

THE DEW ON MOUNT HERMON

DESCENDING ON THE MOUNT OF ZION

FOR THERE IS WHERE HE

COMMANDED THE BLESSING

EVEN LIFE FOREVER. HE SAID

GO BACK TO CANADA AND

REMIND THEM WHEN THEY BEGIN TO

WORK TOGETHER -- BECAUSE IT

TAKES TEAMWORK TO

MAKE THE DREAM WORK -- HE SAID

I HAVE COMMANDED A BLESSING. DO

YOU REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE A

PURPOSE ON YOUR LIFE? YOUR

BIRTH IS THE IDENTIFICATION THAT

GOD CALLED YOU ON THIS EARTH TO

ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING. SO LET ME

GIVE YOU THREE POINTS THAT WILL

HELP YOU. THIS IS THE TITLE

TODAY OF THIS HOPE-TO-GO:

SHAKE IT OFF NO MATTER

WHAT YOU WENT THROUGH IN

2012, AND HOW DO YOU SHAKE IT

OFF, BY, A, WORKING ON PURPOSE.

WRITE THIS DOWN. GET THIS IN

YOUR GOOD EAR BECAUSE TODAY IT

IS SO IMPORTANT. WHEN

WE WORK ON PURPOSE,

PURPOSE WORKS ON US. NOW THIS

YEAR NO MATTER HOW LARGE OR

SMALL THE TASK, NO MATTER HOW

BIG OR TINY THE ASSIGNMENT,

JOY AND SATISFACTION WILL BE

YOURS WHEN YOU START

ACCOMPLISHING WHAT GOD BROUGHT

YOU INTO THIS WORLD TO DO.

NOW LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION:

WHAT DRIVES YOU? WHAT GETS YOUR

HEART PUMPING, YOUR MIND

THINKING, AND YOUR HANDS AND

FEET MOVING? THAT IS

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU.

THAT IS YOUR PURPOSE, AND IF

IT'S NOT GOD CHANGE YOUR

MOTIVATION, AND IF YOUR PURPOSE

IS SELF-CENTERED, CHANGE IT TO

BE GOD-CENTERED. IF IT IS TO DO

YOUR WILL CHANGE IT TO DO GOD'S

WILL. THE BIBLE SAYS IN MATTHEW

6:33, SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM

GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND

ALL ELSE SHALL BE ADDED. THE

CALLING OF EVERY BELIEVER IS TO

DO THE WILL OF THE FATHER. THE

PURPOSE IS TO PLEASE GOD. THIS

IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

THOU ART WORTHY, OH

LORD, TO RECEIVE GLORY AND HONOR

AND POWER FOR THOU HAS CREATED

ALL THINGS AND BY THY WILL ALL

THINGS CREATED EXIST;

REVELATIONS 4:11. NOW MANY TODAY

ARE MISSING THE BIG PICTURE

RESULTING IN A MISSING

IN THEIR PERSONAL PURPOSE. THE

GREAT COMMISSION IS STILL THE

GREAT COMMISSION: GO AND MAKE

DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS.

PROVERBS 19:21 SAYS, MY PLANS

ARE IN MAN'S MIND BUT IT IS THE

LORD'S PURPOSE -- MANY ARE THE

PLANS OF A MAN'S MIND, BUT IT

IS THE LORD'S PURPOSE FOR HIM

THAT WILL STAND. HAVING

GOD'S PURPOSE MOTIVATES

US. B, DON'T SPREAD THE POISON.

THE SUPER APOSTLE PAUL,

CHAPTER THREE AND FIVE OF ACTS

SAYS THIS. PAUL GATHERED

PILES OF BRUSHWOOD AND

AS HE WAS PILING THIS

A VIPER WAS DRIVEN OUT BY THE

HEAT. IT FASTENED ITSELF TO HIS

HAND AND WHEN THE ISLANDERS SAW

IT, THE SNAKE HANGING FROM HIS

HAND, THEY SAID TO

EACH OTHER, THIS MAN

MUST BE A MURDERER FOR

THOUGH HE ESCAPED THE SEA

JUSTICE HAS NOT ALLOWED HIM TO

LIVE, BUT PAUL SHOOK OFF THE

SNAKE INTO THE FIRE, AND I'M

TELLING YOU THAT WHATEVER THE

PROBLEM IS SHAKE IT OFF. DON'T

TAKE THAT PAST PROBLEM OF 2012

INTO 2013. GOD IS GIVING YOU

THE POWER TO SHAKE IT OFF AND

THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE LAST

POINT. MAKE SURE THAT YOU LIVE

AND WORK ON PURPOSE. THAT IS

YOUR HOPE-TO-GO. NOW SEE

WHAT GOD DOES.

I LOVE WHAT

BRIAN WAS TALKING ABOUT THERE

AND, YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS

IS A VERSE THAT YOU CAN

CLAIM FOR 2013: PHILIPPIANS

3:13. BUT ONE THING I DO IT IS

MY ONE ASPIRATION, FORGETTING

WHAT LIES BEHIND AND STRAINING

TOWARDS WHAT LIES AHEAD. I

DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF YEAR

YOU HAD IN 2012 BUT I CAN TELL

YOU SOMETHING. THAT GOD HAS A

BETTER YEAR FOR YOU AHEAD. IT

DOESN'T ALWAYS MEAN THAT ALL

YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES CLEAR UP BUT

IT DOES MEAN MORE PEACE, MORE

JOY, MORE OF GOD FOR YOUR

EVERYDAY LIFE IN THIS NEXT

YEAR. WELL, UP NEXT MORE HIDDEN

SECRETS IN THE BIBLE.

SOMETIMES WHEN WE READ THE

BIBLE A LOT OF TIMES WE FORGET

TO FACTOR IN THE FACT

THAT THESE ARE NORMAL PEOPLE.

THE BIBLE IS FILLED WITH

EVERYDAY PEOPLE, WITH EVERYDAY

PROBLEMS AND OUR TENDENCY AS

CHRISTIANS IS TO SPIRITUALIZE

EVERYTHING SOMETIMES AND, YES,

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE

DIVINITY OF JESUS BUT WE ALSO

NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE HUMANITY

OF JESUS, AND UNDERSTAND THE

HUMANITY OF THE PEOPLE THAT HE

DEALT WITH. A LOT OF TIMES

PEOPLE THINK, WELL, BECAUSE

ISRAEL ARE GOD'S

CHOSEN PEOPLE THAT

SOMEHOW INNATELY THEY ARE

PERFECT, AND EVERYBODY IN ISRAEL

IS PRAYING ALL THE TIME, AND

THERE'S NO SIN, AND EVERYBODY

FLOATS AROUND THROUGH THE

WESTERN WALL. COME ON.

THIS A LAND FILLED WITH

PEOPLE. EVERYDAY

NORMAL PEOPLE, AND FOR US AS

CHRISTIANS WHEN WE COME TO THE

TEXT AND WE SEE THINGS WE ALWAYS

LOOK AT IT FROM A NORTH

AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE AND A LOT

OF TIMES WE JUST FAIL TO

UNDERSTAND, HANG ON A SECOND,

THESE ARE PEOPLE. THEY HAD

CULTURE. THEY HAD PRACTICES.

THEY HAD TRADITIONS. AND

JESUS, AS A MAN OF THE PEOPLE,

AS A JEWISH MAN, HE ALWAYS

RESPECTS AND FOLLOWS THOSE

TRADITIONS. TODAY WE TALKED

ABOUT THE EASTERN GATE. IN THE

PAST SEGMENTS WE TALKED

ABOUT JESUS COMING

INTO THE CITY. WE TALKED ABOUT

HIM BEING THE PASSOVER LAMB.

ALL OF THESE AMAZING THINGS

ABOUT THE LAMB, BUT TODAY I WANT

TO TALK ABOUT WHY THE EASTERN

GATE. THERE ARE SEVERAL GATES

COMING INTO THE CITY. WHY DID

HE GO THROUGH THAT GATE

ON THAT DATE? IT'S AN

IMPORTANT QUESTION, AND

AGAIN, OUR ANSWER ALWAYS HAS TO

BE FIRMLY ROOTED IN THE BIBLE.

LOOK AT WHAT IT SAYS IN EZEKIEL

CHAPTER 44 VERSUS ONE AND TWO.

IT SAYS, THEN THE MAN BROUGHT ME

BACK -- WHERE? -- TO THE

OUTER GATE OF

THE SANCTUARY, THE ONE FACING

EAST, AND IT WAS SHUT. THE LORD

SAID TO ME THIS GATE IS TO

REMAIN SHUT. IT MUST NOT BE

OPEN. NO ONE MAY ENTER THROUGH

IT. IT'S TO REMAIN SHUT BECAUSE

THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL HAS

ENTERED THROUGH IT. I MEAN, WHEN

I SAY THIS IN THE CHURCH I AM

ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE BIG --

THE WOW MOMENT. DID YOU HEAR

WHAT GOD SAID? HE SAID ONE DAY

I, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, I AM GOING

WALK IN THROUGH THE EASTERN GATE

AND I WANT YOU TO SHUT IT AFTER

I'VE WALKED THROUGH. IF I COULD

TAKE YOU TO JERUSALEM, I WOULD

SHOW YOU THE EASTERN GATE AS IT

IS TODAY. IT IS SEALED SHUT

BECAUSE THE MUSLIMS WHO WERE IN

CHARGE OF THE CITY AT THE TIME

OF THE BUILDING, THEY ALSO

HEARD A PROPHECY, AND THEY

HEARD ONE DAY A JEWISH MESSIAH

IS GOING TO COME AND HE'S GOING

TO DELIVER ISRAEL FROM WHOEVER

IS CONTROLLING HIM AND THEY

SAID, THAT'S US. WE GOT TO DO

SOMETHING TO KEEP THIS MESSIAH

OUT OF JERUSALEM. SO THEY

DECIDED TO BOARD UP THE GATE BY

PUTTING STONES IN FRONT OF IT,

AND THEIR WHOLE HOPE WAS TO

PREVENT PROPHECY FROM TAKING

PLACE. BUT LOOK AT HOW GOD

WORKS. WHEN THE MUSLIMS CLOSED

THE GATES, GOD DIDN'T SAY, OH

NO, MY PLAN IS RUINED. HOW AM

I GOING TO SEND MY MESSIAH BACK

THROUGH THAT GATE. NO, NO, NO.

GOD SAID, IN FACT, AFTER I COME

THROUGH THAT GATE I WANT YOU TO

SEAL IT SO PEOPLE WILL KNOW THAT

I HAVE COME THROUGH IT. THAT

GATE IS SEALED TO THIS DAY.WHY?

BECAUSE JESUS, WHO WAS GOD IN

THE FLESH WALKED THROUGH THE

GATE.

THANKS, JOE. LAURA-LYNN, I

LOVE THESE TEACHINGS. YOU KNOW

IT SAYS AND ZACHARIAH 14:4 THAT

JESUS ALSO WILL COME BACK AND

GO THROUGH THOSE GATES WHEN THE

MOUNT OF OLIVES SPLITS. SO THAT

SECOND COMING, I AM LOOKING

FORWARD TO THAT.

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 WERE US TO BE

TRAPPED IN THE PAST? YOU CAN

BE FREE OF YOUR BAGGAGE. LEARN

HOW GOD'S FORGIVENESS LEADS TO

CHANGE LIVES AND NEW

BEGINNINGS. CALL THE 700 CLUB.
