--- 4 minutes - Bro. Wilber tells the story of when Hattie Hammond told the crowd at Brooks, Oregon to "See Jesus!"
--- 6 min - Bro. Wilber relates his experience of going down the Pentecostal Road "quite aways", before turning back when he found that "wasn't the way to go".
--- 14 min - One of the tenderest words in all of Scripture is when Jesus calls Mary by name on resurrection morning.
--- 17 min - preaching in earnest now regarding blind Bartimeus.
--- 33 min - relates the preaching of Annette Marsnik on John 17. Jesus had authority over ALL FLESH. There was a drawing power within Jesus which affected all men.
--- 35 - Walking off Whiteface mountain in total darkness. You can have eyes in your feet.
--- 36 - He wonders aloud what it was like to observe Jesus' personal characterists. Never a man spoke like this man.
--- 40 - We need our lives to be filled with MEANING. Jesus Himself is the Logos, which can be translated as meaning itself.
--- 44 - "Jesus, thou Son of David" This was a term of Messianic dignity.
--- 47 - "tough love" "severe mercy"
--- 49 - Bartimeus had to walk by faith, not by sight. He had to walk for some distance to come to Jesus before he was healed. Jesus didn't walk right up to him, but called for him to come and close the distance first. Jesus gets men on their feet.
--- 51 - When you ask men you're begging, but when you ask God you're praying. Bartimeus will be asking Jesus for something, so it's not appropriate for him to be wearing a beggar's garment - he therefore casts it aside.
--- 53 - Steve relates his own salvation experience and the message - preached by a Scottish woman named Mae Decker - which compelled him to come to Jesus.
--- 59 - Steve turns the meeting back over to Tom Worth.
--- 61 - Song: "I will follow You wherever You may go".
--- 64 - Corporate prayer - Roberta Wilber
--- 67 - A man named Brother Simeon leads prayer in another language.
--- 69 - prophetic word of encouragement
--- 72 - Closing prayer by Gustav Hoyer.
