Watch the 700 Club Canada for Dec.26, 2013 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE

700 CLUB CANADA.

WELL, LAURA LYNN HOW WAS

YOUR CHRISTMAS?

THE CHRISTMAS SEASON WAS

WONDERFUL. COMPLETE

PANDEMONIUM AND CHAOS

TRYING TO GET EVERYTHING TO

THE TABLE HOT. YOU KNOW, ALL

AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW

LADIES WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

THE POTATOES ARE GETTING

COLD, THEY'RE NOT SMASHED

ENOUGH, THEY'VE GOT LUMPS

IN THEM.

DID YOU COOK YOU TURKEY

UPSIDE DOWN AGAIN?

I DON'T KNOW. I THINK IT

TURNED OUT REALLY GOOD.

YEAH?

I DON'T KNOW WHICH WAY IS

UP ON A TURKEY. SOMEBODY

TELL ME, HOW DO YOU KNOW

WHICH WAY IS THE UNDERSIDE,

AND THE BREAST SIDE?

DO YOU SEE WHY I LOVE

ASKING HER QUESTIONS LIKE

THIS? YOU KNOW, I ENJOYED

THE SKIING AND ALSO, YOU

KNOW, THE NORTH AND THE

PEACE, AND THAT JUST, THAT

WONDERFUL TIME.

YOU DESERVED THAT.

AGAIN, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

KAREN DAWN, MY WIFE. I'M

JUST ENJOYING THIS. YOU KNOW,

IT'S BEEN SUCH A BLESSING

SPENDING TIME WITH YOU

THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON AS

WELL. AND WE'VE GOT ANOTHER

GREAT SHOW FOR YOUR TODAY.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING TO FIND PEACE

AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, THEN

YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THE

STORY OF PATTI MASON. SHE'LL

SHARE A LITTLE SECRETE ABOUT

PEACE AND WHY IT TOOK HER SO

VERY MANY YEARS TO DISCOVER

IT FOR HERSELF.

JOE AMMERAL WILL BE WITH

US TO CONTINUE HIS AMAZING

SERIES CALLED HIDDEN SECRETS

FOUND IN THE BIBLE. NOW JOE'S

EXPERT KNOWLEDGE OF ANCIENT

JEWISH CULTURE MAY CHANGE

THE WAY YOU READ SCRIPTURE.

BUT FIRST, ANOTHER

INTERESTING CHRISTMAS

TRADITION. THIS IS THE STORY

BEHIND THE NATIVITY SCENE.

I JUST LOVE NATIVITY SCENES

AND THIS ONE IN FRONT OF

REMINDS ME SO MUCH OF THE

ONE THAT WE HAD IN MY HOUSE

GROWING UP AS A CHILD. WHEN

DID PEOPLE START DISPLAYING

NATIVITY SCENES?

THEY PROBABLY STARTED

MAKING CARVINGS IN THE THIRD

AND FIRST CENTURIES. BUT THE

FIRST NATIVITY SCENE THAT WE

REALLY LOOK AT IS BEGINNING

WHAT WE LOOK AT TODAY. WAS

STARTED BY FRANCIS OF ASISEY

ABOUT 88 CENTURIES AGO. HE

USED THEM AS TEACHING TOOLS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, HE

INCORPORATED LIVE ANIMALS

AND ACTORS, AND EVEN HAD

SONGS. IT WAS PART OF AN HOUR,

OR TWO HOUR LONG PAGEANT IF

YOU WILL, WHERE HE BROUGHT

THE MAJOR SCENE TO LIGHT FOR

THE VERY FIRST TIME. SO,

PEOPLE COULD REALLY

UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED

WHAT HAPPENED ON THAT FIRST

CHRISTMAS NIGHT.

NOW THE NIGHT THAT JESUS

WAS BORN. WE KNOW HE WAS

BORN IN A MANGER. HOW

ACCURATE IS A NATIVITY SCENE

LIKE THIS ONE.

WE HONESTLY DON'T KNOW.

WE KNOW THAT THERE HAD TO

BE ANIMALS BECAUSE THE CITY

WAS FULL AND PEOPLE BROUGHT

THE ANIMALS IN. THEY WERE

PROBABLY INSIDE THE STABLES

NOT ON THE OUTSIDE. WE

SO KNOW THE SHEPHERDS

ARRIVED. ONE OF THE THINGS

WE ALSO KNOW IS THE MAGI,

THE VISITORS FROM THE EAST.

THE KING'S DID NOT COME TO

THE MANGER. EVEN THOUGH

WE ALWAYS SEE THEM.

THE KING'S WEREN'T IN THE

MANGER?

THEY CAME MANY, MANY

MONTHS LATER AND VISITED

MARY AND JOSEPH IN THEIR

HOME AND SPENT THE NIGHT

WITH THEM. SO, WE KNOW THAT

MOST OF THE NATIVITY SCENES

ARE NOT ACCURATE. BUT I DON'T

THINK THAT THAT IS AS

IMPORTANT AS IT IS TO REALIZE

THAT PROBABLY MORE THAN

ANYTHING ELSE, THESE LITTLE

NATIVITY SCENES PUT THE FOCUS

BACK ON THE REASON FOR THE

SEASON. AND IT REALLY SHOWS

US THAT GOD CAME TO USE AS A

COMMON MAN SO THAT WE

WE COULD ALL RELATE TO HIM.

WELL THEN THAT'S SO

WONDERFUL, YOU KNOW, WHEN

YOU LOOK AT ACE AND THOSE

NATIVITY SCENES. IT GIVES YOU

A GREATER APPRECIATION OF NOT

ONLY THE PAST BUT ALSO THE

PRESENT. THAT WE WOULD

CONTINUE TO HOLD ONTO THOSE

TRADITIONS.

YES.

NOW, YOU KNOW, THE THING

THAT I LOVE ABOUT YOU BECAUSE

YOU MAKE IT VERY CLEAR TO.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT.

EVERYONE THAT I'M NOT

REALLY THE AFRICAN ONE THAT

YOU'RE THE AFRICAN ONE. RIGHT

AFTER YOU LEFT AFRICA YOU WENT

UP TO.

THE HIGH NORTH.

YEAH, THE HIGH NORTH INTO

THE.

TUKTOYAKTUK

TUKTOYAKTUK. SO NOW

YOU WILL TELL US IN

TUKTOYAKTUK, AND

ANNOKNITOOK MERRY

CHRISTMAS. AND I'D LIKE YOU

TO JUST SOUND IT OUT FOR US,

LAURA LYNN. SINCE YOU ARE

OUR TRUE NORTH SISTER.

YES, I LIVED IN TUKTOYAKTUK

FOR THREE YEARS. NO TREES.

YEP.

AND IT WAS COLD AND I

FROZE MYSELF, YEAH.

NOW I WANT EVERYONE TO

SEE THIS. ON THE BOTTOM OF

THE SCREEN, YOU'RE GOING TO

SEE THAT WORD AND THIS IS

LAURA LYNN'S TIME TO TELL YOU.

OKAY, COULD I READ OFF THE

PAPER?

SURE.

BECAUSE I DON'T REMEMBER

IT.

SURE.

I WAS EXTREMELY FLUENT

AND KNEW IT.

THAT WAS THE TIME YOU

FLEW OFF THE SLED, THOUGH.

AND I HIT MY HEAD.

YEAH, I REMEMBER.

WHICH HAS BEEN DOWN

HILL FROM THERE.

MAKE SURE IT'S ON THE

BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN AND

EVERYBODY ON THE COUNT

OF THREE, HERE'S YOUR

MERRY CHRISTMAS UP IN THE

NORTH. GRANDMA LOUIE AND

ALL THOSE THAT I VISIT UP IN

PINKERTON. LISTEN TO THIS

ABBREVIATION.

I'D LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO

DAVE AND OKSANA, LINDA

CAFNEY, MAVIS JACOBSON,

DEBBIE PINGOW, I'D LIKE

TO SAY SORRY RIGHT NOW FOR

WHAT I'M DOING TO YOUR

LANGUAGE. OKAY, JE JU LIME

PEGLUARI.

ONCE AGAIN.

UKIARTAME POVDILVAR-QLIO.

BUT I THINK THEY SAY IT MORE

WITH A, THEY HAVE A.

LET ME JUST SAY MERRY

CHRISTMAS TO YOU FOR ALL THOSE

THAT LAURA LYNN JUST INSULTED.

NOW, GIVE ME MY PAPER

BACK.

YEAH.

THERE'S ALSO ANOTHER, I

DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS

BUT THAT ALSO ORIGINATES.

I SHOULD KNOW THAT BUT I

WAS YOUNG WHEN I WAS UP

THERE.

OKAY.

SO WE JUST HAD A CANADIAN

LIKE A SOUTHERN CANADIAN

CHRISTMAS WITH A TREE, A FAKE

TREE. THEY HAVE NO TREES.

NO TREES?

YEAH.

IT'S CELEBRATED IN SOME

PROVINCES BUT IT ALSO, THEY

EXCHANGE GIFTS AND IT CONSISTS

OF DANCING AND GIFT EXCHANGE.

YES.

THAT'S PRETTY COOL.

THEY HAVE NEAT DANCING,

YES AND YOU KNOW THE INUIT

PEOPLE ARE JUST FULL OF

INCREDIBLE TRADITION AND

IT'S BEAUTIFUL UP THERE AND.

NOW, WHEN YOU WERE

THERE DID YOU EVER EAT ANY

CARIBOU TICK?

THAT DOESN'T SOUNDS GOOD.

NO, I DIDN'T. IS THAT?

THIS IS, IT'S A TICK THAT

COMES DIRECTLY UNDERNEATH

THE CARIBOU.

YES.

AND IT'S A DELICACY. AND

ALSO BOLOGNA AS WELL, YEAH

WITH YOUR ULU. YOU HAD ULU

GROWING UP.

I HAD MUK TUK.

YEAH, MUK TUK.

YES, AND YEP.

SO LITTLE LAURA

LYNN WITH A LITTLE KNIF AND HER

LITTLE ULU SHE WAS EATING MUK

TUK.

IT'S A SEAL GEESE. THEY EAT

GEESE.

YEAH.

MY DAD ONCE CALLED THE

GEESE, THEY WERE GOING BY

AND ALL THE INUIT PEOPLE HAD

TO LAUGH BECAUSE HE WENT,

LU-LU-LU AND THE GEESE TURNED

AROUND BECAUSE HE DID IT

WRONG.

DO THAT AGAIN? WHAT DID

HE DO?

HE, LU-LU-LU.

OH.

YEAH.

WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY

MEAN IN GEESE?

I DON'T KNOW. BUT IT'S NOT

CHRISTMASSY SO WE'RE NOT

GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT.

OKAY.

BUT WE DO WISH OUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE FAR

NORTH A VERY MERRY

CHRISTMAS.

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I AM SORRY.

YEAH.

I WAS UNABLE TO CONVEY IT.

I THINK THIS IS THEIR GIFT. I

THINK THIS IS THEIR GIFT.

THEY'RE LAUGHING. THEY'RE

DYING RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW BUT DAVID AND

OKSANA, YOU ARE DEAR TO MY

HEART, AND SO I'M SORRY ABOUT

THIS BUT I DO WITH YOU A

MERRY CHRISTMAS UP THERE.

UP NEXT, PATTI MASON OWNED

MANY THINGS BUT NEEDED ONE

THING MONEY COULDN'T BUY.

CHRISTMAS IS THE TIME OF

YEAR FOR PARTIES, PRESENTS,

AND FUN WITH FRIENDS AND

FAMILY. CHRISTMAS HAS SPECIAL

MEANING FOR PATTY MASON

NOW. BUT AS A CHILD SHE

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE

MEANING OF CHRISTMAS.

DISCONTENT, SHE COULDN'T WAIT

TO LEAVE HOME AND SPREAD

HER WINGS. SHE TOOK AN

EXCITING JOB AS A TRAVEL AGENT.

I WAS LOOKING FOR

SOMETHING IN THE TRAVEL. I

WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING

IN THE SUCCESS.

BUT WHEN PATTY RETURNED

HOME FROM EACH OF HER

EXOTIC TRIPS. THE GLAMOR OF

HER LIFESTYLE NEVER SEEMED TO

BE ENOUGH.

AND I JUST THOUGHT THAT

PURSUING THE THINGS OF THIS

WORLD, PURSUING MEN,

PURSUING MONEY, PURSUING

SUCCESS, PURSUING A CAREER,

PURSUING FAMILY THAT ALL THESE

THINGS WERE SOMEHOW GOING

TO VALIDATE ME AND FILL THAT

EMPTY VOID.

PATTI DECIDED TO SETTLE

DOWN AND START A FAMILY

THINKING IT WAS THE MISSING

PIECE TO A FULFILLING LIFE. BY

THE TIME SHE WAS 35 SHE HAD

A HUSBAND, THREE KIDS, AND A

FLOURISHING SALES CAREER. BUT

THE REALITY OF HER EMPTINESS

HIT HER AT A COMPANY AWARDS

BANQUET.

I WAS ONSTAGE IN DALLAS

TEXAS RECEIVING AN AWARD.

ONE OF THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF

ACHIEVEMENT IN THE

COMPANY AND AS I WAS

STANDING ON THAT STAGE,

SURROUNDED BY ALL KINDS OF

WHAT I CALL HOOPLA. BUT THERE

WAS ALL KINDS OF MUSIC, THERE

WAS THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE IN

THE AUDIENCE. IT WAS JUST A

MOMENT THAT SHOULD HAVE

BEEN THE PEAK OF LIFE. THAT

WAS THE MOMENT IT HIT ME.

THAT SUCCESS, FAMILY, TRAVEL,

NONE OF IT WAS GOING TO FILL

ME, WAS GOING TO GIVE ME

WHAT I WAS LONGING FOR.

PATTY PLUNGED INTO A DEEP

DEPRESSION.

A LOT OF THE TIMES MY

CHILDREN WERE VERY YOUNG

THEN AND SO I WOULD PUT THE

GIRLS IN FRONT OF THE TV AND

POP IN A VIDEO. I'D PUT MY

SON IN HIS CRIB, AND I WOULD

GO AND SLEEP OFF ANOTHER DARK

DAY.

PATTY STARTED DRINKING. AT

FIRST IT WAS JUST A GLASS OF

WINE.

AND ONCE I BEGAN TO

REALIZE THAT THE ALCOHOL

TOOK A LITTLE OF THE EDGE OFF

OF THE SADNESS, THEN I BEGAN

TO DRINK A LITTLE BIT MORE, AND

A LITTLE EARLIER, UNTIL FINALLY

I GOT TO A POINT WHERE I'D

START DRINKING MAYBE AT

TWO OR THREE O'CLOCK IN THE

AFTERNOON.

PATTY HID HER DEPRESSION

FROM HER HUSBAND AND

FRIENDS. ALONE AND HELPLESS

PATTI BEGAN TO HAVE THOUGHTS

OF SUICIDE. IN AN ACT OF FINAL

DESPERATION, PATTY CRIED OUT

TO GOD.

I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHAT

WENT OFF IN MY MIND AS TO

WHY I WENT TO GOD. HE

WASN'T APART OF MY LIFE. HE

WASN'T VITAL IN MY LIFE. HE

WAS SOMETHING, YOU KNOW,

THAT I DID ON SUNDAY

MORNINGS WHEN I WAS A CHILD

AND SO FOR ME HE WAS A LAST

RESORT. I BEGAN TO CRY OUT TO

GOD. I SAID, YOU'VE GOT TO

HELP ME, YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE

THAT COULD HELP ME. NOW I

WAS ASKING HIM FOR A MIRACLE.

ONE WEEK LATER PATTY SAW

AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR A

CHRISTMAS PLAY. SHE WANTED

TO TAKE HER CHILDREN. IT WAS A

FOUR PART PLAY (INAUDIBLE)

WITH A LOT OF SINGING AND OLD

CHRISTMAS CAROLS, AND THE

NEWER CONTEMPORARY

CHRISTMAS MUSIC. I WAS

ENTHRALLED. IT WAS LIKE I WAS

SEEING IT ALL FOR THE FIRST TIM.

AND THE LAST SECTION THEY DID

A REENACTMENT OF THE BIRTH OF

JESUS BUT THIS TIME THERE WAS

SOMETHING DIFFERENT. THERE

WAS SOMETHING SPECIAL. IT

WAS LIKE I WAS SEEING IT FOR

THE FIRST TIME.

AT THE END OF THE

CHRISTMAS PLAY THE SENIOR

PASTOR CAME FORWARD AND

BEGAN TO EXPLAIN SALVATION.

NOW, THIS WAS FOREIGN TO ME

EVEN THOUGH I GREW UP IN

CHURCH I HAD NEVER HEARD THE

PLAN OF SALVATION. SO WHAT HE

WAS SHARING WITH ME WAS

NEW BUT IT WAS ALSO VERY

WONDERFUL AND I WANTED IT.

I WANTED TO MAKE JESUS A

PART OF MY LIFE. SO AS THE

PASTOR PRAYED I REMEMBER

ECHOING HIS EVERY WORD. I

CRIED THROUGH THE WHOLE

THING. BUT INSTEAD THESE

WERE TEARS OF JOY. HE

CHANGED MY LIFE IN THAT

MOMENT.

TODAY PATTY HAS TOTAL

FREEDOM FROM HER DEPRESSION

AND HER FAMILY IS CLOSER THAN

EVER. SHE SHARES HER STORY ALL

OVER THE COUNTRY.

IF YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR

ANYTHING ELSE TO FILL YOU,

WHETHER IT'S THE THINGS OF THIS

WORLD LIKE MONEY, SUCCESS,

CAREER, YOU ARE PURSUING

THINGS THAT YOU THINK ARE

GOING TO FILL THE EMPTINESS IN

YOUR LIFE. YOU'RE ONLY GOING

TO COME UP TO SATISFY. THE

ONLY PURE JOY, THE ONLY

ANSWER, THE ONLY HOPE IS

IN JESUS CHRIST.

YOU KNOW, PATTY WAS

LOOKING FOR LOVE AND SHE

WAS ALSO LOOKING FOR

LOVE AND SHE WAS ALSO

LOOKING FOR SIGNIFICANCE IN

ALL THE WRONG PLACES. AND,

YOU KNOW, IT'S BEEN SAID

BEFORE THAT SIN WILL TAKE

YOU FURTHER THEN YOU EVER

THOUGHT OF GOING. IT'LL MAKE

YOU DO THINGS YOU NEVER

THOUGHT OF DOING, AND MAKE

YOU BEAT THINGS YOU NEVER

THOUGHT OF BEATING. IT

REMINDS ME OF A WOMAN THE

BIBLE SAYS IN JOHN CHAPTER

FIVE AND FOUR, EXCUSE ME.

AND IN JOHN CHAPTER FOUR

IT TALKS ABOUT A WOMAN

FROM SAMARIA AND SHE'S AT

A WELL AND JESUS COMES AND

MEETS THIS WOMAN AND IT'S

NOT EVEN POPULAR WHAT HE

DOES. BUT HE SPEAKS TO THIS

WOMAN WHILE HIS DISCIPLES

ARE GOING INTO TOWN AND HE

SAYS, GIVE ME A DRINK OF

WATER. AND THIS WOMAN IS

ACTUALLY AT THE WELL AT THE

TIME WHERE NO ONE CAN SEE

HER BECAUSE SHE'S GOT SO

MANY ISSUES IN HER LIFE. BUT

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF ISSUE.

HE IS A NEED KNEADER AND THE

BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS SAYS TO

HER, HE ANSWERED HER IF YOU

KNEW THE GIFT OF GOD AND

WHO IT IS, WHO SAYS TO YOU,

GET ME A DRINK. YOU WOULD

HAVE ASKED HIM AND HE

WOULD HAVE GIVEN YOU LIVING

WATER. AND THIS WOMAN SAID

SIR, GIVE ME THIS LIVING WATER.

I WONDER IF THAT'S WHAT

YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR. YOU

WANT TO REALLY LIVE. I'M

TALKING ABOUT THE GUSTO OF

LIFE. I WANT TO LEAD YOU IN A

PRAYER. ITS VERY SIMPLE. I WILL

NOT EMBARRASS YOU. IT'S

CALLED THE SINNERS PRAYER.

BUT IF YOU PRAY THIS PRAYER

I'M GOING TO PUT SOMETHING

INTO YOUR HANDS. IS IT REAL WILL

AT LAST? AND I BELIEVE THAT

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOING TO

COME ALSO INTO YOUR LIFE AND

FROM THIS DAY ON, AFTER

CHRISTMAS YOU'RE GOING TO

SEE THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL.

PRAY THIS PRAYER WITH ME.

JESUS, I CONFESS. I AM A

SINNER. LORD, I TURN FROM THAT

LIFE. I AM NOT HAPPY. I NO

LONGER CHOOSE IT. I CHOOSE

YOU TO BE MY SAVOR LORD,

COME INTO MY LIFE. I GIVE YOU

MY PERSONAL PERMISSION FOR

YOUR HEAVENLY INTERVENTION.

MAKE ME WHAT YOU WANT ME

TO BE. IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. YOU KNOW BRIAN,

I LOVE THAT STORY OF THE STORY

AT THE WELL.

YES.

BECAUSE JESUS WAS SO

COMPASSIONATE. HE WAS THE

ONE WHO ALWAYS REACHED OUT

TO THOSE WHO WERE REJECTED

AND THAT'S WHAT HE STILL DOES

TO THIS VERY DAY. IF YOU

YOU KNOW, BOXING DAY IS

THE DAY THAT WE PACK UP THE

STUFF THAT WE GOT THAT MAY

NOT HAVE FIT. PERHAPS IT

WASN'T WHAT WE WANTED OR

MAYBE IT WAS JUST PLAIN UGLY

AND WE TAKE IT BACK TO THE

STORE AND WE REPLACE IT WITH

SOMETHING BRAND NEW,

BEAUTIFUL, AND EXACTLY WHAT

WE LIKE. IN A WAY, GOD GIVES

US A BOXING DAY WHEN WE

COME TO HIM. HE MAKES

EVERYTHING BRAND NEW. HE

TAKES THE STUFF THAT WAS

SHAMEFUL, HURTFUL, WRONG,

PAINFUL, AND HE REPLACES IT

WITH SOMETHING WONDERFUL.

GOD IS ALL ABOUT RESTORING

DIGNITY. IF YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES ARE BAD TODAY

HE HAS YOUR VICTORY COMING.

IF YOU NEED A BREAKTHROUGH,

HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHEN AND

WHERE TO DELIVER IT. PERHAPS

THE ENEMY HAS DEALT A BLOW

TO YOUR FAMILY FINANCIALLY.

GOD IS ABUNDANCE AND HE

HAS PROVISION FOR YOU. YOU

MIGHT SAY, YOU KNOW LAURA

LYNN, IT'S BEEN SEVERAL YEARS

AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'VE BEEN

BOXED INTO A CORNER FOR A

VERY LONG TIME. WELL GET

READY BECAUSE JOEL 225 SAYS

AND I WILL RESTORE A REPLACE

FOR YOU THE YEARS THAT THE

LOCUST HAS EATEN. AND

MAYBE YOU'VE BEEN GRIEVING

OVER YOUR JOY AND YOU DON'T

KNOW HOW TO LAUGH AGAIN.

GOD HAS A NEW BOX FOR YOU

AND IT IS BIGGER THAN YOU'VE

EVERY SEEN. JERAMIAH 31:13

SAYS, THEN THE YOUNG WOMEN

WILL DANCE AND BE GLAD.

YOUNG MEN AND OLD AS WELL,

I WILL TURN THEIR MOURNING

INTO GLADNESS. I WOULD GIVE

THEM COMFORT AND JOY

INSTEAD OF SORROW. GOD IS

NOT GOING TO LEAVE YOU BOXED

INTO A PAINFUL PLACE. HE IS

GOING TO TAKE YOU OUT OF THAT

BOX AND GIVE YOU SOMETHING

NEW. JUST KEEP TRUSTING HIM.

ISIAH 61:3 SAYS, TO ALL WHO

MOURN IN ISRAEL, HE WILL GIVE

A CROWN OF BEAUTY FOR ASHES,

A JOYOUS BLESSING INSTEAD OF

MOURNING. FESTIVE PRAISE

INSTEAD OF DESPAIR. IN THEIR

RIGHTEOUSNESS THEY WILL BE

LIKE GREAT OAKS THAT THE LORD

HAS PLANTED FOR HIS OWN

GLORY. WHATEVER PLACE THE

ENEMY SEEMS TO BE KEEPING

YOU TRAPPED, REMEMBER THAT

GOD IS GREATER THAN ANY

OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND IN

THIS NEXT SEASON, HE IS GOING

TO RELEASE YOU FROM THAT OLD

BOX AND GIVE YOU A NEW

STORY. I LOVE THIS VERSE, ISIAH

43:19, SEE, I AM DOING A NEW

THING. NOW IT SPRINGS UP. DO

YOU NOT PERCEIVE IT? I AM

MAKING AWAY IN THE

WILDERNESS AND STREAMS IN

THE WASTE LAND. LET TODAY BE

A SIGN TO YOU THAT GOD HAS

GOT A BRAND NEW PATH, A NEW

STORY, A BRAND NEW JOURNEY

FOR YOU, AND ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS BOX UP THE OLD STUFF THAT

YOU DON'T WANT. THOSE

THINGS THAT ARE GETTING YOU

DOWN, NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

THAT KEEP TELLING YOU LIES,

WRAP THEM UP, TAKE THEM

TO THE FOOT OF THE CROSS, LET

GOD TAKE OVER AND MAKE A

WAY FOR YOU IN THE DESERT

PLACES. HE HAS AN ABUNDANT

LIFE WAITING. MAKE A

COMMITMENT TO HIM TODAY

TO LET GO OF ALL THAT OLD STUFF,

ANTICIPATE THE NEW, LET THIS

BE YOUR NEW KIND OF BOXING

DAY.

AMEN. YOU KNOW, WHAT

LAURA LYNN WAS TALKING ABOUT

I BELIEVE IT IT'S SO IMPORTANT

THAT WE RECOGNIZE WHATEVER

IS IN THAT BOX I WANT YOU TO

LABEL IT RIGHT NOW. I WANT YOU

TO PUT A STICKY OR WHATEVER IT

IS AND BEGIN TO LABEL WHAT'S

BOXING YOU IN RIGHT NOW?

BECAUSE WHATEVER THAT IS,

REMEMBER, THE GREATER THE

ADVERSITY, THE GREATER THE

REWARD. WHAT SHE WAS

TALKING ABOUT IN ISIAH 49 AND

19. BEHOLD I'M DOING A NEW

THING AND I TELL YOU SO BEFORE

IT SPRING FORTH. I WANT YOU TO

REALIZE. IN ORDER FOR THAT NEW

THING TO TAKE PLACE, WHAT GOD

IS GOING TO HAVE TO DELIVER

YOU FROM IS THAT OLD THING.

THAT OLD WAY OF THINKING AND

THAT'S WHY I WANT YOU TO CALL

THAT NUMBER ON THE SCREEN

BECAUSE WE'VE GOT SOME

PRAYER PARTNERS THAT ARE

GOING TO PRAY WITH YOU THAT

WILL COME AGAINST ALL OF THOSE

MIND SETS, THOSE TIRED

NEGATIVE MIND SETS THAT HAVE

BEEN HOLDING YOU BACK. I'M

GOING TO PRAY THIS PRAYER WITH

YOU BUT I WANT YOU TO REALIZE

THAT YOU'RE GOING TO COME

OUT BUT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO COME OUT HEAD FIRST

BECAUSE IT'S LIKE A BABY.

WHEN YOU'VE BEEN CRADLING

YOU'VE BEEN GOING BACK AND

FORTH, AND BACK AND FORTH.

THE ONLY WAY THAT YOU CAN

REALLY COME OUT IS YOU

GOT TO BRING YOU THINKING OUT

BECAUSE WHEREVER YOUR

THINKING GOES, THE REST OF YOU

IS GOING TO FOLLOW, AS A MAN

THINK IT'S SO EASY. FATHER IN

THE NAME OF JESUS, I PRAY THAT

THAT MAN AND THAT WOMAN

RIGHT NOW BUBBA, BABY,

YOU ARE COMING OUT IN JESUS

NAME. AND WE PLEAD THE

BLOOD OF JESUS AND WE PRAY

FOR THE HOLY GHOST FIRE TO NOW

BRING FORTH THIS DELIVERANCE

AND I HOLD (INAUDIBLE) IN JESUS

NAME, AMEN. WHEN YOU'RE

COMING OUT CALL THE NUMBER

ON THE SCREEN. HERE,

COMING UP NEXT IS MORE

HIDDEN TRUTHS FROM THE BIBLE.

THIS IS JOE AMMERAL.

MANY TIMES WHEN WE COME

TO THE BIBLE WE COME AS

CHRISTIANS, WE COME AS

WESTERNERS AND WE BRING

OUR NORTH AMERICAN

PERSPECTIVES TO THE TEXT.

BUT WHAT WE FAIL TO

REMEMBER IS THAT THE BIBLE

WAS WRITTEN DURING THE FIRST

CENTURY, ESPECIALLY THE TIME

OF THE GOSPELS. AND MORE

THAN THAT WE NEED TO

REMEMBER THAT JESUS HIMSELF

WAS A JEW LIVING AND

OBSERVING A JEWISH ORTHODOX

LIFESTYLE IN THE FIRST CENTURY.

AND I KNOW THAT'S REALLY

WEIRD FOR A LOT OF US. WE

DON'T SEE THEM THAT WAY.

MOVIES ALWAYS SHOW US THAT

HE'S BLOND HAIR, BLUE EYES,

AND THE BRITISH ACCENTS. BUT

THE TRUTH IS WHEN WE GO BACK

IN TIME AND REALIZE WHO JESUS

REALLY WAS, HE WAS A JEWISH

RABBI FROM THE FIRST CENTURY.

SOMETIMES HE DOES THINGS

THAT WE DON'T FULLY

UNDERSTAND. IT DOESN'T ALWAYS

MAKE SENSE. NOW IN TODAY'S

TEACHING WE SEE ONE OF THESE

EXAMPLES. THERE'S A WOMAN

WHO'S CAUGHT IN THE ACT OF

ADULTERY AND SHE'S BROUGHT

TO JESUS AND THEY BEGIN TO

QUESTION HIM AND SAY WHAT

SHOULD WE DO WITH THIS

WOMAN? WE KNOW THE

LAW SAYS THAT SHE SHOULD BE

PUT TO DEATH BUT WHAT DO

YOU SAY THAT WE SHOULD DO?

AND THINK ABOUT IT, THIS

WOMEN'S LIFE IS IN HIS

HANDS. BUT INSTEAD OF

RESPONDING, HE STOOPS DOWN

AND HE WRITES IN THE SAME

SAND. AND FOR A LOT OF US THAT

JUST DOESN'T MAKE A LOT OF

SENSE. NOW IN ORDER TO

UNDERSTAND WHY HE STOOPS IN

THE SAND, WE'VE GOT TO

UNDERSTAND HOW RABBI'S

SPOKE AND HOW THEY

MINISTERED IN THAT TIME.

LET'S TRY TO FIGURE OUT TWO

THINGS. WHERE WAS JESUS

WHEN THIS TOOK PLACE AND

WHEN ON THE CALENDAR DID

IT TAKE PLACE. CAN WE KNOW?

YEAH, WE CAN KNOW BUT

WE'VE GOT TO GO BACK TO

THE FIRST CENTURY TO

UNDERSTAND THE PERSPECTIVE

IN THE TEMPLE THERE WAS AN

OUTER COURT AND INNER COURT,

THE HOLY PLACE, AND THE HOLY

OF HOLIES WHERE THE HIGH

PRIEST WOULD GO ON ONE

DAY A YEAR. NOW THIS WOMEN

IS CAUGHT IN THE ACT OF

ADULTERY. WHERE IS SHE?

SHE CAN'T BE IN THE HOLY OF

HOLIES OR IN THE HOLY, OR IN

THE INNER COURTS. SHE'S GOT

TO BE SOMEWHERE IN THE

OUTER COURTS. SO KNOWING

THAT THEY'RE THERE, THAT'S THE

FIRST PART OF THE STORY. THE

SECOND PART IS WHEN DID THIS

TAKE PLACE? CAN WE ACTUALLY

KNOW THAT? JOHN IN CHAPTER

7 VERSE 37 SAYS THAT ON THE

LAST AND GREATEST DAY OF THE

FEAT THAT JESUS WENT TO THE

TEMPLE. WHY DOES HE STRESS

THAT IT WAS THE LAST DAY AND

WHAT WAS THE GREAT FEAST?

A LOT OF TIMES IN THE WEST,

AS CHRISTIANS WE DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT THE

FEATS ARE ALL ABOUT. BUT

ON THIS PARTICULAR FEAST THE

HIGH PRIEST WILL GO DOWN TO

THE POOL OF SALOM. HE WOULD

TAKE LIVING WATER, HE WOULD

BRING IT BACK TO THE ALTER,

AND HE WOULD POUR IT ON THE

ALTER. AND AS THE LIVING WATER

WAS COMING DOWN, JESUS

WALKS INTO THE TEMPLE AND

HE SAYS, I'M THE LIVING WATER

DRINK OF ME AND YOU'LL

NEVER THIRST AGAIN. HIS

REJECTED, HE'S THROWN

BACK INTO THE OUTER COURT,

AND THEN HE STOOPS DOWN

AND HE WRITES, AND LOOK AT

WHAT IT SAYS HERE IN JERAMIAH

CHAPTER 17, VERSE 13. LORD

YOU ARE THE HOPE OF ISRAEL, ALL

WHO FORSAKE YOU WILL BE

PUT TO SHAME. THOSE

WHO TURN AWAY FROM YOU WILL

BE WRITTEN IN THE DUST

BECAUSE THEY HAVE FORSAKEN

OR REJECTED THE LORD, THE

SPRING, OR SOURCE OF LIVING

WATER. AND EXACTLY WHAT THE

BIBLE SAID GOD WILL DO THAT

ONE DAY HE WOULD CLAIM TO

BE THE LIVING WATER, MEN

WOULD REJECT HIM, HE WRITE

THEIR NAMES IN THE DUST OF

THE EARTH. NO WONDER

JESUS BENT DOWN AND

NO WONDER HE WROTE IN THE

DUST.

THANK YOU JOE. YOU

KNOW I LOVE THAT LAURA LYNN

BECAUSE THAT JESUS WRITES

IN THE SAND THIS WOMEN

CAUGHT IN THE ACT OF ADULTERY.

THE AMAZING THING IS WE SEE

IN REVELATIONS IT SAYS HIS EYES

ARE LIKE BURNING COALS. AND

IT'S THE FIRST TIME THAT HE

ACTUALLY LOOKS UP. CAN YOU

IMAGINE LOOKING INTO THE EYES

OF THE ONE THAT WOULD JUDGE

ALL HUMANITY? AND THEN HE

PUTS HIS EYES DOWN. THANK

YOU JOE FOR UNCOVERING THAT.

WOW, WHAT A POWERFUL TRUTH.

ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW WE

LOVE HEARING FROM YOU AND

BRIAN WE HAVE GOT SOME

VIEWER COMMENTS HERE.

YEAH.

SONIA SAID THAT GOD

SEES ALL THAT WE HAVE DONE

AND FOR THE ONES WHO SUFFER

FROM THE FLOOD IN ALBERTA.

SO SHE SAYS KEEP UP THE GOOD

WORK. SHE'S BEEN PRAYING

FOR THEM.

YEAH, AND PLEASE KEEP

PRAYING FOR THOSE PEOPLE

BECAUSE I'VE BEEN IN CALGARY

AND IN THOSE AREAS AND

THERE'S STILL PEOPLE WHO ARE

RECOVERING FROM THAT. SO

LET'S CONTINUE KEEPING THEM

IN OUR PRAYERS.

AND MUSURAT SAID GOD

BLESS YOU ALL. THE WONDERFUL

WORK YOU ARE DOING TO SPREAD

THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

YES.

AND FERN CALLED INTO SAY

HOW MUCH SHE ENJOYS THE

700 CLUB CANADA AND WITH

THE GUEST WHO SPOKE ABOUT
