begged us to allow us to have part of this offering.”
Now remember this, this is very important in looking
at this and studying this. The Holy Ghost by the
Apostle Paul is writing this testimony of what happened to
him and his team in Macedonia. He is writing this to the church
at Corinth and he is teaching them concerning grace and
financial prosperity and how that functions and how it’s
linked together. We discussed this, the Spirit of God moving
by His grace aroused in them not only the desire to give but also
great joy. Now, here is a people that in a lot of trouble man, I
mean, they are really, deep poverty and a lot of affliction,
a lot of things happening to them, bad things but they are
full of joy. Glory to God. Well, you see the joy of the
Lord is your strength and for the joy that was set
before Him, Jesus endured the shame and the contradiction
of sinners against Himself. Hallelujah. For the joy that
was set before Him, that was His strength. Now then, in
this we see the will of God being displayed in His word
concerning financial prosperity in the life of a believer. Now,
let’s go down verse 7 again, “therefore as you abound, he is
talking about the people there now in Corinth, therefore as
your abound in everything in faith, everything in utterance,
and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to
us or love for the ministry see to it that you abound in this
grace also.” Now the things that he just named their faith,
utterance, knowledge, diligence, love to us, these things
are graces, now that they are abounding in that. They
understand that and obvious they understand that it’s the grace
of God that has caused them to abound in these things because
this is the second letter he’s written these people and he has
been there. So they have been being taught, now he is adding
grace number six for them to abound in, spend time believing,
and listening, and studying. And that is in verse 9, “for you
know the grace of our Lord Jesus, the anointed one, that
though He was rich yet for your sake He became poor,” and you
always have to remind yourself again and again that Jesus was
never poor a day in His life in His earthly ministry. He
was not born to poor folks. He was not. Amen. CONGREGATION:
Amen. KENNETH: The only reason he was born in a
manger is because there wasn’t any hotel rooms,
Scripture says that. It wasn’t because He is broke.
Broke people don’t have to go anywhere to pay their
taxes, common. All the poor folks are still back in Nazareth
but the people that had means, people had taxes to pay had to
go to their home place to pay them. Now you know why that
happened? 715 years before, Micah, the prophet, declared a
virgin will have a child in Bethlehem. Now this demonstrates
the dominating power of the Word of living God. This demonstrates
faith-filled words dominate the laws of sin and death.
Those words dominated every government, dominated every
human being, dominated the thinking of armies, and nations
until they were all in exactly in the right place and Caesar
got a crazy idea to receive taxes by making everybody go
home. And she had to go pregnant or not. Amen. That baby was born
at the exact second that he was supposed to be born. Hallelujah.
Now the same thing will work in your life by faith in
God when you take God’s Word you put in your eyes, you
put it in your ears, you put it in your mouth, you put
it in your heart and faith is the substance of things
hoped for and it begins to grow and gives substances
to things and it comes out your mouth. It will begin
to dominate the glory realm. It will begin to work. Angels
are at work and all of heaven is moving to see to it
that your faith product is coming to pass. Hallelujah.
Didn’t take much for me to preach myself happy, in fact I
was doing pretty good when I got here. Hallelujah, glory, glory,
glory. Now, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ though He was
rich, now Jesus walked in true prosperity. Prosperity is not
just money. There is a lot of poor people with money and they
are dangerous. You understand what I’m saying? And it’s not
money that is the root of evil, it is the love of it. The love
of money is the root of all evil and there are people that are
killing you over money and they ain’t got a dime. Amen. So
that’s not issue here. True prosperity, glory to God, is
life seeking first the kingdom of God and living by
faith in the laws of God meeting and securing
every life’s need, spirit, soul, God meeting and securing
every life’s need, spirit, soul, body, financially, and socially.
Money is on actually on the bottom of the list, amen.
I’m telling you you got 40-50,000 people out
there in front of they haven’t been there for two, three days
hadn’t had anything to eat. Now we read about this in the Word,
right? They came to him and said, “What are we going to do?
We got to feed these people.” He said, “You feed them.” What? “We
feed them? You got to be kidding here. We got a little boy’s
lunch.” Jesus did not feed, now listen to me don’t shut me down
before I finish, Jesus actually did not feed that 20 to, some
estimated as many as 40,000 people in one of those incidents
when He said that. He didn’t feed them. He did the praying.
He did the blessing. He did the breaking but He handed it to
them and they fed them. The miracle multiplication happened
in the hands of the apostles and His staff members. Now
that should be exciting to you. See, doesn’t the Scripture say
why do you toil and work for perishable things? Come and buy
without money. Our currency in the kingdom of God is faith.
Amen. God didn’t tell to pay for it, He told you to believe for
it. Hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Now you’re
going to see something here in this final instalment of
this that you are going to be glad you came tonight.
Amen. Now they said, “All we have are these little
fishes and these little pieces of bread.” Now listen to
what He said, “Bring it to me.” Oh yeah, that’s step
one, bring it to me. That’s so good. Hallelujah, little is
much when Jesus gets His hand on it. Glory to God.
Now then, you know the grace of our Lord Jesus, the anointed
one, that though He was rich yet for your sake He became poor, so
when did He become poor? Poor and poverty, poverty is not a
money issue. Poverty is a spiritual issue. You can throw
money at poverty by the billions and it doesn’t even change
anything. That has been proven out right here in the United
States since the Lyndon Johnson administration and the war on
poverty was launched. They had spend billions and billions and
billions of dollars and all of the records show that the poor
have increased instead of decreased and it’s all the same
people. Why? The Scripture says that a rich man’s wealth is his
strong city but a poor man’s poverty is his destruction. He
thinks poor. His soul is not prospering but prospering in the
things of God I pray that you be in health and prosper even as
your soul prospers. Take stock of yourself. Make sure that your
mental faculty, that your thought life is prospering you,
that you are not still hanging on to old junky thoughts of like
second to last drop out of toothpaste tubes. Put a little
water in the shampoo bottle or toothpaste tubes. Put a little
water in the shampoo bottle or there is at least on cabinet in
the kitchen, when you open it up, you got to put all the
margarine bowls back in the cabinet. Sweetheart the
depression has been over for a long time. Common get out of
there. Get all of those little twisties and bread wrappers.
Notice, glory to God, if we had twisties and bread wrappers.
Notice, glory to God, if we had time we would go through these
Scriptures but you can search them out. One of God’s
commandments was when you harvest your olives don’t go
back over the tree the second time. It’s long sticks and
did not grows. Olives out of the olive
tree, don’t go back over it a second time, leave
a little. Leave a little. If you left a sheaf in the field
don’t go back and get it, leave it. Now back in those
days you would leave that and then open your property up,
anybody that wanted to come in that was in need could go in
there and harvest there rest of those olives, get that sheaf out
of the field but this is important. This is not the end.
You are going to have more toothpaste. There is more and
better shampoo right around the corner here. Stop hanging onto
stuff. If you got stuff that you haven’t worn for the last three
years, that’s a strong indication you are not going to
wear it in the next three. Common, bless somebody with it,
glory to God, get it out of there. Amen. That’s when your
soul begins to prosper. When you begin to have, when you are
motivated by prospering other people all the time. You go into
a business, you treat that restaurant like it was yours.
You go into a service station, you treat that station like it
was yours. Amen. You want to prosper these people. Well they
weren’t all that nice to me. I wonder why. Now let’s stop and
think about it. What could it be? Well, number one it could be
that they are just that way all the time but probably not.
Number two, I wonder what happened to them today. We were
on one of our great motorcycle ride one year up in Colorado,
Gloria and me, and Jerry and Carolyn Savelle, and Happy and
Jeanne Caldwell, and Dennis and Vicki Burke, and Jesse and Cathy
Duplantis, and we were on our motorcycles and we were riding
through the mountain and having a wonderful time. On those trips
like that, every time we stop, every time we slow down, we
preach at one another just as fast as we possibly can. Amen.
Some of the greatest revelations that’s ever come into our lives
are at times like that. We walked into this restaurant and
the waitress really acted like she wished we hadn’t come in.
She just barking, of course they had to put some tables together
because there is a bunch of us and all that. I picked it up in
my spirit. I said, “Common guys, there is something wrong here.”
We got into prayer over her and for her. And she came back over
there, put the menu down, and so she came the next time and I
just called her. I said to her, “Sweetheart come here.” I said,
“Something is hurting you.” I said, “How can we help you?” I
said, “We are a bunch of preachers and we know and love
God and we want to pray with you. We want to help you.” She
broke down right there. She just unloaded what all had happened
to her and she is overwhelmed. She was absolutely overwhelmed
and she was just about to break and we loved on her. We didn’t
give her a tip, we took up an offering for her. Praise God and
blessed her and loved her and told her we loved her and held
her hands and prayed for her. She got so happy, she got so
thrilled, she couldn’t stand, she didn’t want us to leave.
Always keep that in mind. That maybe the reason why you are in
that service station that day, so you don’t need to be grumpy
too. Amen. Hallelujah. Always, always, looking to prosper
people. When you are doing that, you are walking in grace for
prosperity and your soul is beginning to prosper. You start
hanging on to stuff and being stingy with stuff and stuff like
that, correct yourself. You say, “No, no, no wait a minute. I
don’t need to be doing this. I’m prosperous here.” When you live
and walk by faith you are not afraid of losing it because you
know how to believe for what you got the first time. Amen. They
come in there and say, “We are laying you off. Today is your
last day on the job.” You put a smile on face and say, “Glory be
to God. I was believing God when I found this one. Hallelujah.
Yeah. Give me a few days off here, kind to recoup a little
bit.” Amen. Glory to God because you know what you can lose your
job. Your are a soldier in the army of the Lord. You are on
assignment in this earth. Glory be to God. You needs are met
according to His riches and glory not by your employer
but by your faith in God. If somebody said, “I’m going to
tell you what, you going to have to have $200,000 by a week from
tomorrow or it is over…” You start trembling and shaking,
well that looks like that’s too hard for God. How could I, how
could I ever do that? No, it’s not too hard for God,
it’s just too hard for you but then you come right down
the line and somebody tells Bill Gates you are going
to have $200,000 by a week from tomorrow, see
which account we are going to take $200,000 they want it by
a week about a week from tomorrow. See it wasn’t too hard
for God. It was too hard for you. Now, you can get to a place
where it would be too hard for Bill Gates because he ain’t God.
Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: You just keep pushing
the number and you can get to the place where he starts
breaking out in a cold sweat, amen, because it will get to a
place to him where it looks like it’s too hard for God. I’ll tell
you what the Lord said to me one day and it shook me and it hangs
in my spirit a lot. He said, “Kenneth, I have a million ways,
a million different ways, that I can get a billion dollars to
you. You cannot think of three.” I thought, “Well, let’s see,
somebody can give it to me. Yeah, somebody can give it to
me.” That’s about it. That’s about as far as I could go. Why?
That’s the way we should be. “The blessing of the Lord it
maketh rich and adds no sorrow or no toiling with it.” Now, if
you are making a living, if you are making deals, you see where
you are going with that but in the kingdom of God we don’t make
a living, we live by faith and the blessing of the Lord it
maketh the living. Now about 8 of you got it, somewhere during
the night tonight the rest of you will get it. Word of glory,
yeah. That’s a shift over into having a prosperous soul, a
prosperous mind, prosperous emotions, you do not allow
yourself to be startled or made fearful at any kind of bad news,
all right? Now I’m going somewhere with that, I’m not
Creflo, I’m working on something now. You stay with me. Praise
the Lord. Not he said, “Now this is what we should abound in this
grace that though He was rich yet for our sake He became poor
because He bore the curse of poverty He was made poor that
through His poverty we might be made rich. That means that
everything God has belongs to us. We are unlimited in our
resources if we will just learn how to live and function by
faith. Amen. There’s not anything too big. Whatever God
tells you to do that just authorized you to do it. I don’t
care how big it looks to you. Amen. He is not looking for
somebody that’s got enough money, He is looking for
somebody that’s got a lot of faith. Amen. Do you hear what
I’m telling you? Because He’s got the money. Oh, God I’m just
not qualified. Don’t tell Him that, maybe He doesn’t know that
yet. Did you ever think about how much time you spend
‘praying’ and all the time you were informing God about how bad
things are as if He didn’t know instead of talking faith with
Him. Hallelujah. You remember the woman that made the little
prophet’s quarters for the prophet and then she had the son
that God gave her. And then later that boy died of
heat stroke, you remember that? CONGREGATION: Yes.
KENNETH: Men I’m telling you she saddled up, she
headed to the prophet’s house and every time they
asked her, when her husband asked her, “Why are you going
to the prophet?” She said, “All is well.” She got a dead
boy laying upstairs, all is well. She took off and the
prophet saw her coming, what’s the matter with you? All is
well. All is well. That’s all she ever said. All is well. Well
the prophet went down and raised that boy from the dead. She
never did come in there and say, “My boy is dead. My boy is dead.
My boy is …” It would have cost her the life of her son.
She didn’t talk the problem instead of talking the answer by
faith. So now we come on over since we have found this out, we
come into the ninth chapter, God is able to make all grace abound
towards you. Remember now, remember now again the apostle
by the Holy Spirit is teaching them from this testimony in
Macedonia that grace is what stirred these people up to give.
Grace and joy is what brought these people through that
terrible hard time they were in. And the reason grace was there
was motivating them to connect with God by faith for as he
wrote to the church at Rome, it is by faith so that it might
be by grace, say grace. CONGREGATION: Grace.
KENNETH: There is grace for finances. Hallelujah.
Now then, God is able to make all grace, now back
up, he’s still talking to the church at Corinth now and he
is teaching them concerning this matter of bounty,
“he which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly. He
which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully.” Every
man according as he purposes in his heart so let him give not
grudgingly out of necessity for God loves cheerful giver. God is
able to make all grace, it wasn’t only talking about sex
but He is able to make all grace abound. There is something about
abounding, grace is running after you. It’s abounding. There
is way more than enough of it, where sin does abound, grace
does much more abound. And he’s talking about abounding grace
for financial prosperity. Now look at it God is able to make
all grace abound towards you. Why? so that you are always
having all sufficiency in all things may abound to every good
work. He was talking about them having such a desire to give
to that good work, to give and help those other people that
were in trouble financially and great motivated them to give and
motivated them with joy. Amen. And they did it. They gave
themselves and then they sowed what they had into that
offering. Now he said this is the result. That you may
always having, my, my, my, the Babylonian system has taught
people that you don’t ever always have. You are always
trying to get and the world is taught, you and I both
were taught like this and this is the way the gentile
thinks. Jesus said that the gentiles seek after, what
am I going to wear? What am I going to eat? What
am I going to drink? He said, “That’s what they
do. That’s what they seek after. That’s only way only way
they are going to get that” You can only adding to yourself by
working, borrowing or stealing. I don’t suggest … now there is
nothing wrong with work, absolutely. You don’t work you
don’t eat, but you’re not working to earn a living. The
Scripture says in the book of Ephesians, I said this to you
last night and this points it out, let him that stole steal no
more. Let him work with his hands that which is good so that
he may have to give to those that need because the giving is
what creates the income for him not the working with his hands.
The working with his hands provided the seed. It provided
the beginning of his tithe because he is tithing on what he
is earning but the more he tithes and the more he gives the
more his income through grace and faith begins to come his
way. And before long if he is doing this thing according to
the Word of God, hallelujah, and he has got the grace of God on
his mind all the time, he begins to prosper so that his job is
very little more than his seed has been because he is living
on his faith. Hallelujah. I’ve seen it happen. I had it
happen to me. Now, we are getting there, stay
with me. That you may abound to every good work. Everything
thing that God comes along with and puts a desire in
your heart to be a part of it and to be apart of what they
are doing at the church, what’s happening in the kingdom of God,
I want to be partners to these ministries. I want to help in my
church. Glory be to God. I tell you I want to be a part of
this thing where I can get to that place where I’m not looking
to do what I can do, I’m looking to God to tell me what He wants
me to do and that I come up to back with my faith. That’s faith
so that it might by grace and you are always having, always
having. Now in the world we’re taught that everything is out
there and you have to go out there and get it. Somebody else
has it. You start it off, it was your mom and daddy that had it
so you had to somehow get it out of them, sometimes that’s hard.
Amen. Well, and you grow up thinking like that. Then you
gotta go get a job. Somebody else out there has got it and I
got to go and get it. Well you are thinking like that. Then you
bring that over into the church, well, there is God off out there
wherever He is. I got to go to Him and try to get Him in the
notion to get it for me. All that came out of that world
system because when you got born again the Scripture say you were
delivered from the authority of darkness and translated
into the kingdom of God’s dear son. You are a citizen
of heaven. You are a citizen of the kingdom of God and
we are living under kingdom rules now. And you seek first
the kingdom of God and His righteousness or His way of
doing things, what are His ways of doing things? Love, faith,
grace, praise God, those are His ways of doing things. You put
His Word first place. You are living in His kingdom then all
these things will be added to you. You are no longer having to
add them. Oh, dearheart that’s good news. You can go to bed and
sleep tonight over that. I don’t have to do this. All I have to
do is sleep and believe God and do whatever He tells me to do,
sow whatever He tells me to sow. Amen. I’m living by faith. The
just shall live by faith. Now we are then, put your hands right
here, see the spiritual part of you is right in this area right
in here. That’s the reason and particularly in King James, is
referred as coming out of your belly. It’s out of the core part
of you. We are inside out people not outside in people.
Everything that we could possibly need in life as a born
again human being is already in here. Hallelujah. We increase
by the fruit of our lips. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
Hallelujah. Our increase comes beginning with our tithing, then
with our giving, and we believe in our hearts and we say it with
our mouth, and our faith connects with God’s grace and
then the angels are released to do their job. Amen. And the
Scripture say “give and it’ll be given unto you again,
men shall give into your bosom, pressed down, shaken together,
and running over.” I don’t mean you go out and beg them for it,
not you are just doing your job in the kingdom. Now are you
still with it? That’s kind of weak. Okay. As it is written “he
has dispersed abroad, he has given to the poor, his
righteousness remaineth forever.” Now he that ministered
seed to the sower, now and verse 10 this is talking about Jesus
the high priest of our kingdom but who’s he talking about in
verse 9? As it is written he, that couldn’t be Jesus. “He has
dispersed abroad, he hath given to the poor his righteousness
remaineth forever.” Well, there is a little letter out there,
Psalms 112 verse 9, okay, let’s go over to Psalms 112. Better
fasten your seat belt. Psalm 112, verse 9, “he hath
dispersed, he has given to the poor his righteousness endures
forever.” Well, there is the verse that was quoted, correct?
Well who is he? Well now you got to go back to the very first
verse to find who it was that dispersed. All right. “Praise ye
the Lord, blessed is the man,” oh the started good, didn’t it?
Blessed, aha, is the blessing of the Lord, we are going to find
some things about the blessing of the Lord here because that is
what is coming to play by grace. Blessed is the man that feareth
the Lord that delights greatly in His commandments. He is eager
for God to command him to do something because he has found
out when he does it the blessing increases. He has gotten over on
the delight side. Amen, not the gripy side. “Do I have to do
that Lord.” “No, go onto hell. It will be all right.”
Forgive me. His seed shall be mighty on earth. The generation
of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth, are you listening?
CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: You understand what wealth means?
CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: More than one tube of toothpaste.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house, here is a man that
delights greatly in the commandments of God. And he has
got a house and it’s filled with wealth and riches, and his
righteousness endures forever. He is a man that’s got a lot of
money and a big house and his righteousness is intact. So I’m
hearing Godly wealth. It is He that giveth thee the power to
get wealth. Amen. I’m hearing righteous wealth. Amen. It’s not
the money that is bad, the money follows the character of the
possessor. Bad guy with money is bad money. Good guy with money,
the money is good. Amen, but if the bad guy’s got more money
than the good guy, the bad guy’s money is going to win. This is
the reason you don’t ever want to go in business with a bad
guy. Don’t get unequally yoked. You want to prep bibles, he
wants to prep pornography but if he owns 70% of the company,
yeah, it’s going to be pornography. So sell out and get
somebody else. Jesus makes a good partner, yes He does. Now
unto the upright there arises light in the darkness, oh he is
walking in revelation, isn’t he? “He’s gracious and full of
compassion and righteousness. A good man shows favor
and lendeth. He will guide his affairs with discretion,”
the cross reference says good judgement. “Surely
he shall not be moved forever. The righteous
shall be an everlasting remembrance,” that’s covenant
talk. You remember the Scripture said and God remembered Abraham.
Well it wasn’t like He got up one morning and said, “I wonder
where he is. I forgot all about Abraham. I hope he is all
right.” No, no. He’s an everlasting remembrance of him,
he has him on his mind all the time. All the time. He had Noah
and his sons on His mind all the time. He lined the walls of the
throne room with that rainbow and any direction He looked He
remembered Noah. Hallelujah. Well guess what? Jesus is
sitting at His right hand ever making intersession for you and
for me. You are ever on His mind. Glory to God. Hallelujah.
Surely he shall not be moved forever, the righteous shall be
an everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of the evil
tidings, bad news doesn’t move this man. Remember what the
Apostle Paul said, none of these things move me. I got really
trickled by Keith Moore, he was telling me, he said he got under
so much pressure one day he felt one more thing and I have had
it. He said he came home that afternoon from school and he
walked in the front room of the house and just threw his
briefcase in the floor and just flopped down on the floor and
shouted, “None of these things move me.” He said it was amazing
how quick it broke the pressure in there. I’m not moved by what
I feel. I’m not moved by what I see. I’m moved only by what I
believe and I believe the Word of the living God. “He is not
afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed trusting in the
Lord. His heart is established. He shall not be afraid until he
see his desire upon his enemies, he hath dispersed, he hath given
to the poor his righteousness endures forever. His horn shall
be exalted with honor.” He is in the business of giving. He has
made it his life. If you study this out and go back into
records and so forth as far as you can tell this man was a
banker. Amen. And he is in the business of helping people. He
is not in the banking business, he is in the people business.
And he is dispersing and he is so busy giving, he is so busy
being delighted when God gives him an assignment particularly
if it’s more than more can do because for it’s more than he
can do then God is going to have to step in and do it which is
going to bring him up to another level. Amen, and he delights
greatly. He’s so busy doing that bad news doesn’t even
affect him, goes in one ear and out the other. Glory to God. And
he sees his desire on his enemies. Amen. Somebody say
amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Can you see
it? Can you see what the Apostle Paul was telling these
people? He was referring to this man and he is teaching
with him. He was referring to this man. He fully knew
that they knew the 112th Psalm or he would not have
just referred to it. Amen. He brought it to their remembrance,
oh yeah the rich guy with the big house full of wealth and
riches, not scared of anybody, oh yeah we know that guy. That’s
who we are supposed to be? Yeah. That is who you are supposed
to be. Glory to God. You are supposed to be prospering.
You are supposed to be growing. You are
supposed to be getting bigger than the problem.
Hallelujah. It’s time to shout out an amen right
there, glory to God. MALE: “Rejoice in the Lord
always and again I say rejoice.” Joy is what gives you the
strength to hold steady when circumstances get rough. Joy
gives you the ability to laugh in the devil’s face when he
starts trying to knock you off your faith. Joy gives you a kind
of staying power that will make you a winner again and again.
Make it a point to rejoice in the Lord always, and there
won’t be anything the devil can do or say to steal
your victory from you. BRIAN: I just was going
through a very painful separation and divorce. I didn’t
have any answers. I didn’t think that God really wanted me
anymore. I was young but I felt like my life was over. I got
born again in my bedroom reading an old Bible that I had been
kicking around in my stuff for years. So I turned on Brother
Copeland in the Fall of 1988 and he was teaching from Mark
chapter 4 and it changed my life. I became a partner and it
wasn’t long before I heard him talking about a believers
convention. So I lived in Boulder, Colorado at the time
and I have through some very tough times and I bought a van
for $70. A friend of mine, Eric and I, we decided that we would
make some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and head for
Texas. Long story short we made it here on Tuesday morning and
there just seemed to be no agenda other than the Word of
God and to live it. In 1989 when I went back obviously on fire,
full of the Word. I worn out tape players one after another
listening to the tapes that the ministry would send me and then
God began to prosper me some. He gave me my own business. In
1989, I believe it’s my angel spoke to me and said, “Why don’t
you go in the lawn business.” I did. The first day I went out
and made $60. I have been doing that ever since with a pretty
good degree of success. ANNOUNCER: Brian Lee returned to
Colorado as a changed man. He submitted to his pastor and
spent many years in service to his local church. Brian and his
daughters grew in the Word together. Through their church
they met a young widow with two small boys and following many
years of friendship, the Lord blended them through marriage
into one family, distracted by success before they realized it.
Brian and Cindy found themselves trapped by growing debt. BRIAN:
Without knowing it I had turned my back on the principles that
Kenneth and Gloria taught us about staying out of debt and I
woke up on morning and I was heard over heels in debt. We had
16 creditors after us, mostly due to some really foolish
business decisions that I had made but came to one day where
we made a commitment that we were going to come back to KCM
and be partners and find out the keys to make this thing work.
God gave us a seed, gave us an income tax refund. It was
$8,300. CINDY: $8,397. BRIAN: $8,397 and when that income
refund check came to us, I didn’t have to pray about it.
I didn’t have to call my pastor and ask. I didn’t have to ask
anybody. I knew that was my seed to get us out. I just told
Cindy, I said, “We are sending that to Kenneth Copeland
Ministries.” ANNOUNCER: Within six weeks of sowing this seed,
despite natural circumstances in a depressed economy, Brian and
Cindy secured a contract on their home. BRIAN: We took the
modest proceeds from the sale of that home and negotiated with
each one of our creditors, we closed about 13 of those 16
accounts in six weeks and if you just add two zeros to that
$8,397, God took $$8,397 debt out of our books and so Cindy
and I since 2008 we have taken a solemn vow and more credit, no
more debt of any kind. We are not going to ask anybody for a
loan ever again. I can testify that today that we have become
faithful in tithing and it has made a difference. It’s brought
peace to our lives. CINDY: I don’t worry about money like I
used to. I don’t worry about what’s going to happen this or
what’s going to happen I just say, “You know what God, this is
your ministry, if you want us to be there you will make a way for
us.” And God, He has done that and not just at the ministry but
in our lives, in our kids and it’s almost like you cannot wait
to see what He will do next. BRIAN: We are better off now
than we have ever been and as we get more and more completely out
of debt, pay off our homes and pay off all our creditors and we
will be entering to the fullness of the debt free lifestyle that
God wants us to have. We are so young. There is nothing that
good for us coming but we know the enemy when he attacks us as
husband and wife what he is really trying to do is to
destroy the lives of our children, our grandchildren, our
extended family. Since we have been able to walk through
the crisis moments of life it has galvanized our
marriage. We are stronger than ever and we know
that our best is yet to come. ANNOUNCER: Come to a Kenneth
Copeland Ministries event. KENNETH: You’re calling things
that be not as though they were, and you begin to see it. Glory
to God. I’m richer than I ever knew I was. I’m richer beyond
my whole imagination. Because He can do exceeding
abundantly beyond all I can ask or think, and He
promised to do it according to the power that’s working
within me. ANNOUNCER: September 20-22 the

Copeland, my dad and mother have been teaching faith and the
blessing for over 50 years, and I’ve seen, first hand, the
results of sowing and reaping, and I’ve seen how seed time and
harvest works by faith. And it works by putting the Word in. In
Mark 4, it’s talking about the sower sows the Word. And if you
go all the way through, and I know you’ve probably read it, go
read Mark 4, and it talks about the different ground that the
Word goes into. But the sower is sowing the Word, the question is
what kind of ground is that Word going into? And it may be a Word
about finances, it may be a Word about healing, it may be a Word
about freedom, or about redemption. But whatever the
Word is that you’re putting in what really matters is what is
the heart? The kind of harvest you get depends on what kind of
heart it’s going into, what kind of soil. And I want to read this
to you, because this tells us the secret ingredient or the
fertilizer to put in our soil, so to speak. This is in verse
24, Jesus says, “Pay close attention to what you hear. The
closer you listen the more understanding you will be given.
And you’ll receive even more.” Receive what? Receive the Word,
receive the seed sown into your heart. When you put the Word in
and you really listen, and you receive what the Word says
you’ve made your heart good ground. And that’s when you get
30, 60, 100-fold by really taking the time to make a
decision to hear the Word, to receive it, by faith. You know
what? I’ve listened to my mom teach that, my dad teach that
and I know you probably have too. You’ve given and given to
this ministry and your support helps us to minister the Word
all around the world. I see people’s lives change through
the broadcast, the magazine, our products and even our events. So
what you sow here, believe God that the Word is true. Remember
we’re going to receive what He said, “Give and it shall be
given unto you. Press down, shaken together and running over
will men give into your bosom.” I’m in agreement with that for
you. Father, I thank you that as we sow our seed today, you see
it, and you increase it and you bring the harvest to us
now in Jesus name. Thank you for watching
Victorious Living, this is Kellie Copeland reminding
you that Jesus is Lord. ANNOUNCER: Kenneth Copeland

of God enlarges your capacity for faith. GLORIA: True
Prosperity is the ability to look a person in the eye in
their moment of impossibility and take their needs on as your
own. GEORGE: Thanksgiving is the answer to faith. It is
the language of faith. The moment you make
the decision to live debt free God sees you
debt free. (Music) GLORIA: Hello, everybody.
Welcome to the Believer’s Voice of Victory. We have
been having a wonderful time with Pastor George
learning more about what belongs to us in the prosperity
realm. GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: That’s important,
George. GEORGE: It really is. You should know what
you’re believing for– GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: –and know what’s
involved in it. That is extremely important. GLORIA: You
know, Ken and I have been believing God for a lot of
years, a lot of years. GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: What, 40? KEN:
50. GLORIA: I don’t know. KEN: 50 years. GLORIA: And all that
time we’ve been tithers and sowers. And I don’t know of any
time, regardless of what was going on in the country–
GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: –in the world, whether it was bad times
or good times, we’ve always been blessed. GEORGE: You really
have. GLORIA: We’ve always had what we needed. GEORGE: Yep.
GLORIA: And that’s just the way it works. GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA:
Glory to God. GEORGE: The Lord has always supplied. He’s always
provided. And you two have really applied the principles of
faith that you learned through Brother Kenneth E. Hagin, the
things that you learned through Oral Roberts, especially in
faith where Brother Ken–Kenneth Hagin is concerned. You–
GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: –that–boy, that first year in
1967– GLORIA: Oh, yeah. We learned faith. GEORGE:
–you–you went to all of the seminars. He had the quarterly,
I guess, seminars, 10-day– GLORIA: Well, we–and we lived
in there for a while. GEORGE: In Tulsa, yeah. And you went to
those, and you learned about the realities of redemption. GLORIA:
It just changed everything. GEORGE: You learned about the
authority of the Word. Gloria, those are–you were in training.
GLORIA: And Ken–Ken was with Brother Roberts. He was learning
about the power of God to heal– GEORGE: The power of God, the
healing and miracle ministry. GLORIA: –faith and miracles,
and– GEORGE: You were good– GLORIA: –I think about that.
GEORGE: –good students. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: And learning how
to walk out the principles of faith so that they are able to
give those principles to us. GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: Well, what
we’re talking about– GLORIA: And we had nothing. I mean, we
were– GEORGE: Yeah. You were– GLORIA: –we were poverty with a
capital P. GEORGE: Did you live in a shotgun house? Did you live
in one of those? GLORIA: I’d call it a project house. GEORGE:
A project house. GLORIA: But a shotgun house, you could shoot
through it with one shell, all right. Right down close to the
river in Tulsa, you know. GEORGE: Oh, man. GLORIA: But we
had a house. I mean, it wasn’t our house, but we– GEORGE:
Yeah. Yeah. GLORIA: We rented a house. And– GEORGE: Yep.
GLORIA: –when it rained, we didn’t get wet. GEORGE:
That’s–that’s a good thing. Ha-ha. That’s a really good
thing. GLORIA: Yeah. But the thing was, we were–we got
us–we got in all of Brother Hagin’s meetings. GEORGE: Yes.
GLORIA: Ken was travel–he was working with Brother Roberts,
flying on the airplane. So he was in the miracle meetings. Of
course, I was home with the little kids. GEORGE: Yeah.
GLORIA: But still, I had–we had reel-to-reel tapes by then.
GEORGE: You were able to listen. GLORIA: And I was listening to
those, and I was learning. And so I fed myself with the Word.
And the Word is just–it just works. GEORGE: It does. GLORIA:
Boy, you can’t do– GEORGE: It does. GLORIA: –anything better
than learn what belongs to you. See, this is full of stuff that
belongs to me and you– GEORGE: Yep. GLORIA: –in this Word.
And–but if you don’t know it belongs to you, you don’t take
advantage of it. GEORGE: But you– GLORIA: So I’m still
studying. GEORGE: You have–well, I was going to say,
you have more revelation now about the Word and the operation
of the Word– GLORIA: Oh, yeah. GEORGE: –than you did in 1967.
GLORIA: Sure. GEORGE: You’ve grown, you’ve developed. I’ve
developed since I got here in 1976. Oh my, I just–when I got
engaged to Terri and Kenneth found out, he sent me all of his
cassette tapes. He thought, “We needed–” GLORIA: He’s getting
his son-in-law ready. GEORGE: “–We’ve got to get this boy up
to speed really quick.” And I did. I bore down into those and
listened to them up at school. I listened to one a day. And when
I came down to work for the ministry in that summer, I would
go back to the–we called it the tape duplication room. And I’d
go back there– GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: –and I would pull out a
series. I’d pull out a series before I would leave from work,
go home–I was living with Kenneth’s parents at the
time–go back to the house, listen to it, bring it back the
next morning, put it back. I was hungry. I was hungry for the
Word. GLORIA: We were, too. We were. GEORGE: And what happens
is, the more hungry you are, and the more you study, and the more
you apply, and the more you’re a doer of the Word, the more you
begin to learn how the kingdom of God operates. GLORIA: That’s
right. GEORGE: And the kingdom of God has an operation that
I’ve learned about. And this series came out of a series
that Kenneth E. Hagin taught on “Steps to Answered Prayer” that
Brother Copeland taught on “Seven Steps to Prayer That
Brings Results.” And I refreshed myself be–as–in preparation
for this time together, I refreshed myself by listening to
those again. I listened to them over and over again– GLORIA:
Yes, amen. GEORGE: –and got that back, got the momentum back
going about the faith steps that we are to take. GLORIA: Yeah.
GEORGE: And let’s go through the faith steps– GLORIA: Okay.
Let’s do it. GEORGE: –once again, one more time. GLORIA: I
love that. GEORGE: Step one, “Decide what you want from God.
Be specific about the things that you’re believing God for.”
Step two, “Locate scriptures that promise you what you want
from God.” GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: “Give the Word of God first
place and make it final authority in your life.” Step
three, “Get those scriptures firmly fixed in your heart.” You
meditate the Word until that Word becomes so real on the
inside that it completely wipes out any doubt and unbelief, but
the Word takes prominence in the forefront of your thinking and
your heart. Step four, “Ask God for what you want and believe
you receive when you pray.” When you ask God for what you want,
we learn to–we learn that we are to ask in the name of Jesus.
And then what we do is, at the end of that prayer, we say,
“Amen, so be it, I take it now.” GLORIA: “I believe I receive
it.” GEORGE: “I believe I receive it.” GLORIA: “I take
it now.” GEORGE: “And I take it now. It’s mine right now.” From
that moment forward– GLORIA: And then you–you have it. I
have it. GEORGE: Yeah, you have it. GLORIA: Well, I’m–I can’t
drive it. Well, you don’t–you might not can have it in your
garage yet, but you have it. GEORGE: That’s right. GLORIA:
And if you’ll stay with it, you’ll have it in your garage
for– GEORGE: Now, you just said something very important right
there, if you will stay with it. GLORIA: Yes, amen. GEORGE: That
is the key. From step five through 10, that is the key,
what Gloria just said, if you stay with it. If you treat this
thing casually, you’re not going to get anywhere because the
devil’s a fighter. And he is–his primary– GLORIA: Well,
what does the Bible say? Resist him and he’ll flee. GEORGE:
Resist the Devil. He will flee. GLORIA: If you don’t resist,
he’s going to hang around. GEORGE: He is. GLORIA: He’s
looking for a home. Don’t let him take yours. GEORGE: Mark 4
tells us that the sower sows the Word, and Satan comes to–
GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: –steal the Word. GLORIA: Talk you out
of it. GEORGE: Talk us out of it, steal the Word that is in
our hearts. So you really have to be aggressive about this.
GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: But when you say, “Amen,” you
must make a decision, “What am I going to do between now and
the time I can see that manifestation of what we prayed
for?” Well, that’s what steps five through ten are all about.
GLORIA: Mm-hmm. GEORGE: Step five, “We must refuse to allow
any doubt, fear–or fear to enter into our consciousness.”
Step six, “See yourself succeed and not fail.” GLORIA: Yes.
GEORGE: You are not failing. GLORIA: But the devil will come,
and he’ll say, “You’re not going to get that. You’re not going to
be able–you need–you’re never going to get a car.” GEORGE:
Mm-hmm. GLORIA: “You’re not going to do that.” GEORGE:
Mm-hmm, yeah. GLORIA: What is he most famous for? What’s the
devil most famous for? TOGETHER: Lying. GEORGE: Yeah, lying.
GLORIA: There’s no truth in him. GEORGE: So you know that
whatever he says is a lie. GLORIA: It’s a lie. GEORGE: So
you just take the opposite of what– GLORIA: That’s right.
GEORGE: –he’s saying to you. GLORIA: Exactly. GEORGE: In Step
seven, “We must give God continual praise and
thanksgiving.” “Oh, Lord, we thank You. I want to thank You
that I have that now. We receive it in Jesus’ name.” GLORIA: Yes,
amen. GEORGE: “And we praise You and honor You for it.” Step
eight, “Make every prayer a statement of faith.” GLORIA:
Mm-hmm. GEORGE: When you pray from that point onward, then
you–you just give God thanksgiving for it and say,
“Thank You, Lord, I received it then.” GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: “I
receive it now in Jesus’ name.” GLORIA: You don’t quit. GEORGE:
You don’t quit. Step eight–or rather, Step nine, “Testify to
what you believe.” Testify– GLORIA: Say it. GEORGE: Yeah,
say it. Say it. Testify. “Father–” GLORIA: “I believe I
receive.” GEORGE: “I have it. I have our new house. We have our
new car. I am healed in Jesus’ name.” You testify to that. And
finally, Step 10. Here we are Gloria. We’ve made it to Step
10. “Get on the giving end.” “Get on the giving end.” And
I’ve heard Brother Copeland say this over and over again about,
“You’ve got to get on the giving end.” GLORIA: “Give and it shall
be given unto you.” GEORGE: “–to you. Good measure–”
GLORIA: “–pressed down–” GEORGE: “–pressed down–”
TOGETHER: “–shaken together, running over–” GEORGE: “–shall
men given into your bosom.” GLORIA: Big return. GEORGE: Big
return. GLORIA: Big return. GEORGE: That’s good. Big return.
GLORIA: Glory to God. GEORGE: Big return. GLORIA: Running over
return. GEORGE: If you’re believing–if you are believing
for finances, sow into someone else’s life. GLORIA: That’s
a–that’s– GEORGE: If you need extra time, sow your time.
If you’re believing for debt freedom, sow towards debt
freedom in somebody else’s house. And that’s what Terri and
I did. GLORIA: Somebody else’s life. GEORGE: Life. We were–we
were believing for debt freedom in our own lives. So we were
looking around and asking the Lord, “Who can we sow into?
Who–whose mortgage can we help pay off?” We sowed seed towards
our own debt freedom, and we’ve been debt free now for–for
quite a number of years and live in a debt-free home. Bank can’t
take it. It belongs to us. And we sowed seed for that. We got
on the giving end. Even–even while we were renovating the
home that we are in now, and it was taking so long, we were
still listening to the Lord. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: “Where do
you want us to sow? Who do you want us to give to?” When you
would think, at a time like that, you’d want to just save–
GLORIA: Hoard it. GEORGE: Hoard it. GLORIA: “Hoard” is the word.
GEORGE: Hoard it. You want to hoard the money and keep it for
yourself. The Lord was saying, “Keep giving.” GLORIA: Keep
sowing. GEORGE: Keep sowing. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: And
there’s a momentum. GLORIA: The line is moving. GEORGE: The line
is moving. GLORIA: Hallelujah. GEORGE: I love it. The line is
moving. And there’s a momentum. There’s a momentum that builds
giving and receiving, giving and receiving, giving and receiving.
And it gets bigger. It’s like the big snowball that goes
down–the little snowball that goes down the mountain– GLORIA:
And it gets bigger. GEORGE: –and it just gets bigger and
bigger and bigger. And you get into a cycle, an amazing cycle
of continual sowing and reaping. And you can get into the place
where it’s–the sowing and the reaping is on top of each other.
It’s just– GLORIA: It says, “the sower,” what, “overtakes
the reaper”? GEORGE: Overtakes the reaper. GLORIA: Yeah.
GEORGE: Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah. And you get to the place where
you–it’s like you sow a seed in the ground. You throw it into
the ground and the harvest pops out. You throw that seed and
then here comes the harvest. GLORIA: It becomes a lifestyle.
GEORGE: It does become a lifestyle. And just before we
went on the air, you were talking about a scripture in
Proverbs 11. I want to add this into it. In Proverbs 11:24,
“There is he that scatters, and yet increases; and there is he
that withholds more than is meet, but that tends to
poverty.” Withholding– GLORIA: Don’t want to do that. GEORGE:
–tends to poverty. So withholding during a time
between the time of the “Amen” and “There it is” –withholding
will impede and stop the receiving. And it says right
here, “He that scatters will increase.” GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE:
“But he that withholds, that tends to poverty. The liberal
soul shall be made fat,” or shall prosper. That’s what the
word “fat” there is, is “prosper.” GLORIA: Increase.
GEORGE: “And he that waters shall be watered himself.”
GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: And Gloria made a statement. She
made a–we have a Gloria-ism that just came a few moments ago
before we came on the air. Listen to this: “If you want to
be in on the receiving end, get in on the giving end.” GLORIA:
That’s it. GEORGE: And that’s it right there. That’s it right
there. If you want to get in on the receiving end, then you’re
going to have to get in on the giving end. If you’re believing
God right now for finances, don’t stop tithing. GLORIA: Oh,
no. GEORGE: Don’t stop– GLORIA: Or sowing. GEORGE: –tithing.
GLORIA: Don’t stop. GEORGE: Don’t stop sowing. Don’t stop
tithing. I’ll tell you, Gloria, that the–the tithing revelation
is increasing more and more in our lives. Terri and I, we
had–ha–we have been believing for the promises of the tither.
And one of the promises that God– GLORIA: They’re awesome.
GEORGE: God rebukes the devourer. GLORIA: That’s right.
GEORGE: The windows of heaven are opened over us. GLORIA:
There is great increase in tithing. GEORGE: And God rebukes
the devourer. And we were–we faced some things in the house
here recently that we’ve had to get fixed. There was a mold
issue from rain, and we had to get that fixed, and they go
through all of the stuff that you have to go through to
get the– GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: –you know, to read–read the
mold and then get the mold out and then rebuild. So we’re
having to rebuild a section of the house. Then, the other day,
Terri–Terri put some–she took squash, cut it in half and put
it in the microwave because we were going to have that for–for
dinner. She does the squash and then she puts–anyway. So she
put it in there, and she pressed the button. But–and the clock
was going and–and she took it out, but nothing had happened.
Well, she put it back in again, and what happened was the clock
is running, but–but the actual microwave wasn’t working. And
she slapped that thing and she said, “I claim tither’s rights.”
GLORIA: (Laughs) GEORGE: “The devil is rebuked. The
dour–devourer is rebuked.” GLORIA: The devourer. GEORGE:
“He cannot steal our stuff.” And for a few moments there, she
was–I was standing there watching this and going, Yeah,
yeah, we are tithers. We are tithers.” Well, the point being
is, don’t stop tithing in the midst of standing in faith.
GLORIA: No. GEORGE: In the midst of believing God for whatever
you’re believing God right now, and you go down through these
steps–when we talk about getting– GLORIA: You know,
that’s like–that’s like being in a fight– GEORGE: Mm-hmm.
GLORIA: –and having one hand tied behind your back. GEORGE:
Well, yeah. GLORIA: Because now you’re– GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA:
–under a curse, and you’re trying to increase, but you’re
not going to sow, you’re not going to tithe. GEORGE: Hm-mm.
Hm-mm. That doesn’t work. GLORIA: It just doesn’t work.
GEORGE: That doesn’t work. So we have to–we have to get in on
the giving end. GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: And one of the things
that Brother Copeland talks about in his series on “Seven
Steps to Prayer That Brings Results,” he said, “Get involved
in helping somebody else.” Now, we all know Brother Copeland
around here, and the man is a breathtaking giver. GLORIA: He
is a breathtaking giver. GEORGE: We are–we are just all taken
by what he does in his giving. GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: He
called me this morning, this morning before he left town.
He’s got a project going, and he didn’t–he didn’t exactly ask me
for money because the church–the church has its own
benevolent account. We run–we run–we are together here, but
yet John–you, John, and Kenneth, have allowed us to
operate on our own finances. GLORIA: Mm-hmm. GEORGE: Well, we
have our own benevolent fund. We have our own finances. So
Brother Copeland calls me this morning. He’s talking to me
about this project. And he–I know him well enough. He doesn’t
have to ask me. He doesn’t even have to say it. I know. I know
what he’s saying. And I said to him, “Well, Kenneth, well, let
me check our benevolent fund and see what we can do.” “Well,
okay, George. That’ll be fine with me.” Well, he–he didn’t
exactly call me to–he’s just wanting to give. He’s just
wanting to give. And he wanted me to get in on the giving right
along with him. And I–it’s a privilege and an honor to be
able to do something with the man of God where this is
concerned. But his attitude, he is a giver. GLORIA: You should
be married to him. GEORGE: (Laughs) GLORIA: Sometimes you
wonder is he going to give me away? No, I’m kidding. He
never–I never wonder that. I was making that up. GEORGE:
Well, he’s–he–well, you know, you’ve seen it. GLORIA: But he
is a–he’s a–I’m trying to think–victorious giver. GEORGE:
He’s a victorious– GLORIA: Sower. GEORGE:
–take-your-breath giver. Sower. He really is. You know,
he’ll–sometimes they’ll call me from the office or Jan’ll talk
to me and say, “Now, Brother Copeland just gave such and such
and such and such.” And we all just sit there and go, “That’s
Kenneth Copeland.” Well, he–he’s practicing because he,
too, has his faith out there for some things. GLORIA: Sure.
GEORGE: We’re believing God for that Citation X and everything
around it that it takes; pilots, fuel, the maintenance, the–the
annuals, everything. And it’s–that’s–that’s a chunk of
money– GLORIA: Mm-hmm. GEORGE: –to be able to do that. Well,
but he’s using his faith,, and he’s constantly sowing. He’s
constantly sending seed out there and constantly harvesting.
And I was thinking about the example here of the Samaritan,
the good Samaritan, and he–that man got beat up, left on the
side of the road, and that good Samaritan came along. And when
he saw him, he felt compassion towards him, and he–basically,
what he did–it says–and I was reading this. He said, “He
soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them.
He put his on his–He put the man on his own donkey, took him
to an inn where he took care of him.” What a giver. GLORIA:
Isn’t that something? GEORGE: What a giver. GLORIA: He had a
heart for somebody. GEORGE: He really did. And then it says,
“The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins,
telling him, Take care of this man. If the bill runs higher
than this, I’ll pay you the next time that I’m here.” GLORIA:
Yeah. GEORGE: What a giver. And that’s–that’s what we are
supposed to do. That what we–if we are truly believing God for
things in our lives, we need to get in on the giving end. We
need to get in on the sowing end, because when we do sow,
we will reap harvest. GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: Look at
your third page, Gloria. And as we finish up this teaching, I’ll
just share a couple of things with you. GLORIA: My third page.
GEORGE: Yeah, second page, I’m sorry. GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE:
Second page. I keep saying, “third page,” but it’s your
second page. GLORIA: You haven’t done that one yet. GEORGE: I
know. I haven’t done that one. That’s next time. Just a couple
of things that I wanted to leave you with in terms of the whole
idea of giving, get on the giving end. First of all,
there’s a quote that I use in church all the time. “Our
motivation for accumulation is distribution.” That’s what–
GLORIA: That’s good. GEORGE: –it’s all about. GLORIA: That’s
good. GEORGE: That’s what it’s all about. And I quote here
Brother Copeland, “True prosperity is the ability to use
the power of God to meet the needs of mankind in every realm
of life; spirit, soul, body, financially, socially.” We
are–we prosper so that we can help others to prosper. GLORIA:
That’s right. GEORGE: Then the second one here, “True
prosperity is walking with God to be able and equipped to do
for others–” This is the second one here. GLORIA: Are you sure
I–are you sure I’ve got that? GEORGE: You’ve got that one.
“True prosperity is walking with God to be able and equipped to
do for others whatever He needs done, wherever He needs it done,
and whatever He needs it done with.” That’s what true
prosperity is. That’s what it’s about. In Philippians 2:4, “Look
not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things
of others.” In Galatians 6:10 in the Knox translation, “Let us
practice generosity to all while the opportunity is ours, and
above all, to those who are one family with us in the household
of faith.” GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: Now, we were–we were
believing God for the Citation X. This was a number of years
ago. And we were at a ministers conference. We have a yearly
ministers conference, and we were having that ministers
conference here. And I remember the night that Creflo Dollar got
up in front of everybody, and he said, “We are–we, Taffy and I,
the church, are emptying out the church savings account in order
to sow it into the Citation that Brother Copeland is believing
for.” GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: That’s–that really is
something. That really touched my heart that Creflo could have
used that money– GLORIA: Sure. GEORGE: –for other things. I’m
sure he could have been spending money. And it was a lot. It
wasn’t–it wasn’t a small amount of money. GLORIA: It was a lot.
GEORGE: It was a major, major– GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE:
–sum of money. GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: He was believing
God for an airplane. So he got involved in the giving end. And
the giving is all part of the process of faith in getting your
prayers answered. That’s a major thing. It is–when you say–when
you say, “I receive this in Jesus’ name, I’m–amen, I take
it now, so be it,” then from that point on, we begin to
operate in the stand of faith. GLORIA: That goes back to
Proverbs 12–11, “There is seed that scattereth yet increases.”
GEORGE: “Yet increases.” GLORIA: “And there is he that
withholdeth– GEORGE: Yep. GLORIA: “–more than is meet–”
In other words, he’s withholding too much. GEORGE: Too much.
GLORIA: “–but it tendeth to poverty.” GEORGE: Yeah. That’s
the key. GLORIA: That’s the scripture. That’s Proverbs
11:24. GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: So, Gloria, we
have been talking all this time about those faith steps. And I
remember one time, we were in a meeting. This was 1970–I was
married, so ’77 at that time. We were in Pennsylvania. We had a
meeting in Pittsburgh. Went up there with Brother Copeland, and
I remember–we were in a hotel ballroom in those days. And–and
he had a healing service that night. And there was a young man
that had braces on his legs, and he had crutches that he was
having to walk with. And that night, Brother Copeland was
laying hands on the sick. And he got to this man, he laid hands
on him, and he began–Kenneth began to operate in the working
of miracles. And he kept saying to that young man, “Every step
is a step of faith. Every step is a step of faith.” And he took
one step and then barely another step. And Brother Copeland just
kept say, he goes, “Every step is a step of faith.” And he kept
doing it. And all of a sudden, the crutches come down, he took
those leg braces off– GLORIA: I was thinking he had braces.
GEORGE: –and he began to run. And Brother Cope– GLORIA: Hoo!
GEORGE: He was running–and I was take–I was taking pictures
at the time, and I took a picture. We have a picture of
it, somewhere. I think I put it in the magazine. And he’s
running up and down the aisles. And Brother Copeland is
shouting, “Every step is a step of faith.” And he left there
completely healed. GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: I’m telling
you today, every step is a step of faith. GLORIA: Yeah. That’s
right. GEORGE: Don’t get bogged down. Don’t get worried. Don’t
get concerned. GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: You take these 10
steps that Gloria and I have taught you over the last 10
days, apply them. Be a doer of the Word of God. And Father, we
thank You. GLORIA: Thank you, Lord, for the blessing. GEORGE:
We praise You right now. We stand in agreement with everyone
for what they are standing and believing for. GLORIA: Yes.
Praise God. GEORGE: Lord, we are walking by faith and not by
sight. We have it now. GLORIA: We have it. GEORGE: And we take
the necessary steps– GLORIA: We believe we receive it. GEORGE:
–in order to see the fruition of it– GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: –and the manifestation of what we’re believing for.
GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: And we receive, Lord, this teaching.
GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: Every step is a step of faith. GLORIA:
Every step is a step of faith. GEORGE: And we take hold of it
now in Jesus’ name. GLORIA: In Jesus’ name. GEORGE: Amen.
GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: Amen. GLORIA: Hallelujah, George.
GEORGE: We did it, Gloria. GLORIA: Good job. Good
job. GEORGE: We did it. GLORIA: Good job. GEORGE:
We did it. We did it. GLORIA: Glory to God. George
and I will be right back. ANNOUNCER: Come to a Kenneth
Copeland Ministries event. KENNETH: You’re calling things
that be not as though they were, and you begin to see it. Glory
to God. I’m richer than I ever knew I was. I’m richer beyond my
whole imagination. Because He can do exceeding abundantly
beyond all I can ask or think, and He promised to do it
according to the power that’s working within me. ANNOUNCER:

You are blessed in the city. GLORIA: Increase. GEORGE: You
are increasing. You are increasing more and more, you

scripture that we use a lot during these offering days is
Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: Whatsoever a
man sows–” TOGETHER: “–that shall he–“– GLORIA: “–reap.”
GEORGE: –“also reap.” So often we look at that sort of in the
negative vein. You know, “God is not mocked. Whatever you sow,
you’re going to reap.” But that also applies to the positive end
of it. GLORIA: That leaves it up to you. GEORGE: Yeah, it leaves
it up to us. Whatever you sow. And we have so many partners
that sow into this ministry all the time. Gloria, they do it
every month. GLORIA: I know. They’re faithful. GEORGE: And
because of them, we are able to be on worldwide television.
We’re on Dish TV. We’re on Daystar, TBN. We’re on all these
television outlets, Roku. We’re on Apple TV. GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: I mean, people are watching us on their telephones.
Did you ever think, in 1967, that people would be watching
you on a telephone? GLORIA: Huh-uh. GEORGE: Well, these
partners have been so gracious to us. GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: And you know, Terri and I are partners with you, too. We
are faithful partners with you. GLORIA: Praise God. Thank
you, Pastor. GEORGE: It is a privilege and an honor. And
we take the increase by association. GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: We are associated in this–in this ministry because
of our sowing into it. So, Gloria, why don’t you–would you
pray over the partners? GLORIA: Yes. Father, I pray over the
partners today and over all the people that are participating–
GEORGE: Oh, thank You, Jesus. GLORIA: –in the offering. Lord,
we believe You at this time that greater outpouring of finances–
GEORGE: Hallelujah. GEORGE: –would be manifested all
through the body of Christ. GEORGE: That’s right. GLORIA:
That as we sow, we receive a quick harvest in Jesus’ name.
GEORGE: Quick harvest. Thank You, Lord. GLORIA: And I
pray for every person– GEORGE: Praise You, Jesus. GLORIA: —
participating in this offering today. GEORGE: Thank You.
GLORIA: You be blessed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Pastor George Pearsons, reminding you… TOGETHER:
That Jesus is Lord! ♪ MUSIC ♪ >> WELCOME TO GOSPEL TRUTH WITH ANDREW WOMMACK, CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF SHARING GOD’S >> UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND GRACE. WELCOME TO THE GOSPEL TRUTH BROADCAST. WELCOME TO A VERY SPECIAL EDITION OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH. YOU ARE THREE PARTS; SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY. HEALING IS A PART OF THE ATONEMENT OF CHRIST. GOD WANTS YOU WELL. HOW CAN YOU DOUBT THAT YOU’LL GET IT IF YOU’VE ALREADY GOT IT? YOU’RE ALREADY BLESSED. EVERYTHING THAHAHAHAHAHAHAT JESS CAME TO DO, THE POWER FOR IT IS RELEASED THROUGH THE GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS, THE NEARLY TO GOOD TO BE TRUE NEWS. WELCOME TO OUR FRIDAY’S BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH. I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU THAT I’VE GOT THIS BOOK ENTITLED GOD WANTS YOU WELL. THIS IS A POWERFUL TEACHING AND I’VE ALSO GOT IT IN CD AND DVD FORM. YOU CAN GET IT THAT WAY. WE’VE GOT A STUDY GUIDE THAT IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED SO THAT YOU CAN TEACH OTHER PEOPLE. THEN WE HAVE SIX VOLUMES OF HEALING TESTIMONIES. I’VE BEEN PLAYING A LOT OF THESE BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO NOT ONLY GET THIS IN WORD, BUT YOU NEED TO SEE IT ILLUSTRATED. YOU KNOW, JESUS NOT ONLY TAUGHT PEOPLE BUT HE DEMONSTRATED THE POWER OF GOD, AND THROUGH TELEVISION WE’RE SOMEWHAT LIMITED BECAUSE WE…YOU AREN’T HERE AND I CAN’T LAY HANDS ON YOU SPECIFICALLY BUT WE CAN PLAY THESE VIDEOS AND WE’VE BEEN SHARING A LOT OF THESE. THERE’S ABOUT 28 OR 29 TESTIMONIES OF MIRACULOUS HEALINGS AND WE’VE BEEN SHARING THOSE, AND ANYWAY, IF YOU GET THIS ENTIRE PACKAGE, I GUARANTEE YOU, AND MEDITATE ON THIS STUFF, IT’S JUST NEARLY GOING TO BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO STAY SICK. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT SO I’M EXCITED. I KNOW THAT WE’VE ALREADY SEEN A LOT OF GREAT HEALINGS. I’M IN MARK, CHAPTER 5 AND I’M USING THIS ILLUSTRATION OF THE WOMAN WHO HAD THE ISSUE OF BLOOD AND SHE CAME AND TOUCHED THE HEM OF JESUS’ GARMENT TO ILLUSTRATE THAT FAITH IS GOVERNED BY LAWS. JESUS DIDN’T SEE HER COMING. HE DIDN’T SIZE HER UP. HE DIDN’T EVALUATE WHETHER SHE WAS STRONG IN FAITH OR WEAK IN FAITH, WHETHER SHE WAS HOLY OR UNHOLY. THERE’S JUST LAWS THAT GOVERN HOW THE POWER OF GOD FLOWS AND THIS WOMAN PUT SOME OF THOSE LAWS INTO PRACTICE, AND BECAUSE OF IT THE POWER OF GOD JUST FLOWED OUT OF JESUS. NOW HE DISCERNED IT. HE RECOGNIZED. HE COULD FEEL VIRTUE GO OUT OF HIM, BUT HE DID NOT WAIT AND JUST SAY, ALL RIGHT, I’LL HEAL YOU. NO, THERE’S JUST LAWS. IT’S LIKE WHEN YOU GRAB A LIVE WIRE OF ELECTRICITY, IT’S NOT PERSONAL THAT YOU GET SHOCKED. IT’S JUST LAWS THAT GOVERN HOW THAT ELECTRICITY FLOWS. THERE ARE LAWS THAT GOVERN HOW THE POWER OF GOD FLOWS. SO ON OUR PROGRAM YESTERDAY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT ONE OF THEM IS THAT SAID, IN VERSE 27. THIS IS MARK 5:27, WHEN SHE HAD HEARD OF JESUS, SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND TOUCHED HIS GARMENT. SO ONE OF THE LAWS IS THAT YOU HAVE TO HEAR. FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD. I BELIEVE IT IS A DIVINE COINCIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE TUNED INTO THIS PROGRAM TODAY. SOME OF YOU MIGHT’VE JUST BEEN FLIPPING THE DIALS AND WONDERING, WHAT’S THIS GUY SAYING. BUT I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS DRAWN YOU HERE SO THAT YOU CAN HEAR THE TRUTH. FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD. THIS WOMAN HAD TO, FIRST OF ALL, HEAR BEFORE SHE COULD ACT ON IT. BUT THEN IT SAYS SHE HEARD OF JESUS AND SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND TOUCHED HIS GARMENT. ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING THIS IS LIKE IT SAYS OVER IN JAMES, CHAPTER 2, AND I BELIEVE IT’S VERSE 20 IT SAYS, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD? BUT WILT THOU KNOW, O VAIN MAN, THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD? IN OTHER WORDS, HEARING IS THE FIRST STEP AND THAT’S HOW FAITH COMES TO YOU, BUT IF YOU DON’T ACT ON YOUR FAITH, WELL THEN YOUR FAITH IS DEAD, OR YOU COULD SAY IT’S INCOMPLETE. I THINK IT WAS KENNETH HAGIN THAT USED TO SAY, FAITH WITHOUT CORRESPONDING ACTIONS WAS DEAD. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU GOT TO DO SOMETHING. YOU KNOW, IF YOU WERE HERE WITH ME AND YOU WERE IN A… AN AUDITORIUM OR SOMETHING AND IF I WAS MINISTERING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I SAID, THERE’S A FIRE AND UNLESS WE GET OUT OF HERE WE’RE GOING TO DIE. YOU KNOW, IF YOU REALLY BELIEVED WHAT I WAS SAYING THEN I GUARANTEE YOU, THERE WOULD BE SOME ACTION TO CORRESPOND, TO GO ALONG WITH WHAT YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE. A PERSON THAT WOULD JUST SIT THERE AND SAY, WELL I BELIEVE ANDREW AND I’M GOING TO DIE UNLESS I MOVE, AND YET YOU DIDN’T DO SOMETHING. WE WOULD THINK THAT PERSON DIDN’T REALLY BELIEVE. NOW THERE IS VARIANCE. THERE IS…THERE IS ROOM FOR DIFFERENT ACTIONS. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT PANIC. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT FAINT. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SCREAM. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT RUN. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT TRY AND PUT OUT THE FIRE. BUT IF A PERSON JUST SAT THERE AND SAID, OH, I BELIEVE I’M GOING TO DIE UNLESS I MOVE, BUT THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING, WE WOULD THINK SOMETHING’S WRONG. YOUR ELEVATOR DOESN’T GO TO THE TOP FLOOR. SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER YOU DO NOT REALLY BELIEVE OR THERE WOULD BE ACTIONS. AND YET, WE HAVE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME THAT IN THE CHRISTIAN REALM, IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM, THEY’LL SAY, OH, I BELIEVE THAT BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS I’M HEALED, BUT THEN ALL OF THEIR ACTIONS ARE INCONSISTENT WITH THAT. FOR INSTANCE, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE HEALED, THEN START ACTING HEALED. NOW THAT IS A POWERFUL STATEMENT RIGHT THERE AND MOST CHRISTIANS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT IF WE ARE GOING TO SAY THAT WE BELIEVE THAT WE ARE HEALED, THEN YOU NEED TO START ACTING HEALED. NOW THERE IS, THERE IS ROOM FOR US. YOU KNOW, JESUS TOLD PEOPLE, HE SAID, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH SO BE IT DONE UNTO YOU. THERE WERE SOME PEOPLE THAT, LIKE THIS WOMAN, WERE SO STRONG IN FAITH THAT THEY JUST REACHED OUT AND TOUCHED IT, AND THEY, IN A SENSE, GRABBED THE HEALING AND TOOK IT ON THEIR OWN. BUT THEN THERE’S OTHER PEOPLE THAT THEY HAD TO BE BROUGHT BY SOMEBODY ELSE AND JESUS HAD TO HELP THEM LIKE THE MAN WHOSE, HAD THE LUNATIC SON OR THE PERSON THAT THE SON THAT HAD THESE SEIZURES. IT’S RECORDED IN MARK, CHAPTER 9 AND ALSO IN MATTHEW, CHAPTER 17. JESUS, THAT WAS MINISTERING TO THE FATHER OF THE CHILD AND THE MAN SAID, LORD, I BELIEVE; HELP MY UNBELIEF. AND JESUS HAD TO HELP HIM. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT JUST REACH OUT AND TAKE HEALING. THERE’S OTHER PEOPLE THAT THE… YOU KNOW, THEY NEED HELP AND THE LORD SAID, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH. IN OTHER WORDS, HE WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE. NOT EVERYBODY IS TO THE PLACE THAT THEY CAN JUST STAND AND THROW AWAY THEIR MEDICINE, REFUSE AN OPERATION, AND JUST RECEIVE THEIR HEALING. I BELIEVE THAT THAT WOULD BE THE BEST. BUT GOD WOULD MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT YOU JUST DON’T HAVE FAITH NOT TO DO THE THINGS THAT COULD BE DONE IN THE NATURAL. NOW I’M NOT AGAINST ANYBODY WHO DOES THAT, BUT I’M SAYING, I…I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY WOULDN’T THINK IT WAS GOD’S BEST TO BE HEALED WITHOUT AN OPERATION [CLEARS THROAT] OR HEALED WITHOUT MEDICATION. I THINK THAT THAT’S GOD’S BEST BUT NOT EVERYBODY’S THERE. GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE AND IT’S NOT THAT SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER YOU’RE AN INFERIOR PERSON OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. [COUGHS] I’M NOT SAYING THAT STUFF AT ALL, BUT I AM SAYING THAT GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE. SO WHEN YOU START TALKING ABOUT THAT YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE ACTION, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. IT’S…IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU DON’T TRY AND ACT ON MY FAITH. YOU NEED TO ACT ACCORDING TO WHERE YOUR FAITH IS. NOW I REALLY BELIEVE THAT I’M AT A PLACE, AND I HAVE PROVEN THIS. I’VE HAD THINGS GO WRONG WITH ME THAT IN THE NATURAL PEOPLE WOULD GO TO A DOCTOR. THEY WOULD TAKE MEDICATION, AND I’M JUST AT A PLACE TO WHERE I CAN BELIEVE AND RECEIVE, AND I’VE LEARNED THESE LAWS AND I’VE STOOD AND I’VE SEEN SUPERNATURAL MIRACULOUS HEALINGS. A PERSON CAN HEAR MY TESTIMONY AND THINK THAT SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER THEY’VE GOT TO DO IT EXACTLY THE WAY THAT I DO, AND IF YOUR FAITH ISN’T TO THAT PLACE AND YOU GO THROW AWAY YOUR MEDICINE OR YOU DON’T TAKE THE OPERATION, YOU COULD DIE IN THE PROCESS, AND THAT IS NOT WHAT I’M ADVOCATING AT ALL. I THINK THAT WE OUGHT TO BE SHOOTING FOR GOD’S BEST, BUT YOU NEED TO BE JUST HONEST ENOUGH TO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE. YOU KNOW, I’M IN SOME THINGS RIGHT NOW. THIS IS NOT CON…SPECIFICALLY HEALING BUT IT’S TALKING ABOUT FINANCES. I’M IN A PLACE WHERE I’VE SPENT OVER $75 MILLION BUILDING BUILDINGS, AND WE’VE GOT A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON, AND ANYWAY, WE JUST CAME TO A SITUATION. I…I’M DOING IT DEBT-FREE BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THAT’S GOD’S BEST. I’VE SPENT $75 MILLION DEBT-FREE. BUT WE ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE TWO OR THREE PROJECTS ARE HAPPENING AT ONCE, AND SOME THINGS CAME UP AND I HAD TO TAKE OUT A TEMPORARY BRIDGE LOAN UNTIL WE GET SOME OTHER THINGS IN PLACE AND STUFF, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON’T BELIEVE THAT THAT’S GOD’S BEST. I REALLY DON’T, AND I HATED DOING IT. I PRAYED ABOUT IT, BUT WE WERE JUST IN A SITUATION WHERE I HAD TO MAKE A DECISION, AND I WENT AHEAD AND TOOK OUT A TEMPORARY BRIDGE LOAN. I’M BELIEVING TO GET IT PAID OFF IN JUST A MATTER OF DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS AT THE MAXIMUM, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON’T BELIEVE THAT’S GOD’S BEST, BUT I DON’T BELIEVE GOD’S MAD AT ME. I DON’T BELIEVE I’VE SINNED. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT GOD IS ANGRY AT ME, BUT, I AM NOT COMPLACENT. I AM NOT GOING TO STAY WHERE I AM. I’M PUSHING FOR THE BETTER. AND SEE, THIS IS THE WAY I BELIEVE IT IS IN HEALING. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT GOD IS MAD AT YOU IF YOU GO THROUGH ALL OF THE MEDICAL STUFF. BUT, MAN, IT’S EXPENSIVE. IT HAS SIDE EFFECTS TO ALL OF THIS MEDICINE. THERE IS RECROUP… RECUPERATION TIME FROM…FROM OPERATIONS, AND MANY TIMES COMPLICATIONS. I COULDN’T TELL YOU THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE THAT I’VE PRAYED WITH THAT WENT IN FOR SOMETHING RELATIVELY MINOR AND YET, THEY HAD A MAJOR SIDE EFFECT TO IT AND HERE THEY ARE YEARS LATER DEALING WITH THINGS. THAT’S JUST NOT GOD’S BEST, BUT GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE SO PLEASE DON’T MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I’M SAYING, BUT WHAT I AM SAYING THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE HEALED BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS, THEN YOU NEED TO START ACTING LIKE. YOU KNOW, IF YOUR FAITH ISN’T TO THE PLACE THAT YOU COULD JUST STOP YOUR MEDICATION BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE HEALED, WELL THEN MAYBE YOU’RE AT A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD START DECREASING IT. YOU COULD START, YOU KNOW, WEANING YOURSELF OFF OF IT. IF YOU CAN’T SIT THERE AND DO EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE, WELL THEN DO WHAT YOU CAN DO. YOU KNOW, CARLIE TERRADEZ WHO THEIR LITTLE DAUGHTER HANNAH WAS HEALED. WE PLAYED HER HEALING JOURNEY ALREADY, BUT, AND THAT’S A GREAT TESTIMONY. BUT CARLIE HERSELF HAS BEEN HEALED OF, OF MULTIPLE THINGS, AND SHE WAS ACTUALLY IN A WHEELCHAIR AND SHE COULD NOT STAND ON HER OWN, BUT SHE JUST GOT TO BELIEVING THAT SHE WAS HEALED AND SHE WAS GOING TO ACT HEALED. AND SHE WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR AND I FORGET THE EXACT DETAILS. I’VE HEARD HER TELL THIS STORY, BUT IT TOOK HER, I DON’T KNOW, 10, 15, 20 MINUTES TO PULL HERSELF UP OUT OF THE WHEELCHAIR INTO A STANDING POSITION. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT WASN’T WHAT SHE FELT LIKE DOING, BUT SHE DID WHAT SHE COULD DO. AND THEN, ONCE SHE WAS IN THAT STANDING POSITION, IT TOOK HER ANOTHER 20 MINUTES OR SO TO WALK FROM THERE TO HER FRONT DOOR, BUT SHE JUST FORCED HERSELF AND SHE WASN’T ABLE TO WALK NORMAL. IT WAS JUST BARELY GETTING BY. BUT SHE STARTED DOING SOMETHING AND ONCE SHE GOT TO THE FRONT DOOR, SHE SAYS, WELL I’M NOT GOING TO STOP HERE, AND SHE JUST KEPT MOVING. AND ANYWAY, SHE WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR IN JUST A FEW MINUTES BEFORE AND SHE WOUND UP WALKING TWO MILES DOWN TO WHERE SOME FRIENDS OF HERS WERE PLAYING TENNIS AND SHE ACTUALLY PLAYED A GAME OF TENNIS. NOW THAT TOOK A WHILE. IT TOOK MAYBE FOR THIS WHOLE THING, MAYBE AN HOUR OR MORE, BUT SHE STARTED DOING WHAT SHE COULD DO AND AS YOU DO WHAT YOU CAN DO, WELL THEN IT RELEASES THIS FAITH. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. YOU GOT TO START DOING SOMETHING. SMITH WIGGLESWORTH WHO WAS A POWERFUL MAN OF GOD AND HE SAW JUST AMAZING MIRACLES HAPPEN. I REMEMBER ONE STORY HE WENT INTO PRAY FOR A PERSON THAT HAD BEEN IN A COMA, AND HE SAYS, YOU GOT TO DO SOMETHING, AND THE PEOPLE SAID, THEY’RE IN A COMA, AND HE SAYS, NO, THEIR SPIRIT’S ALIVE. THEY CAN DO SOMETHING. NOW THIS PERSON THAT WAS IN A COMA COULDN’T DO MUCH, BUT HE SAYS, DO SOMETHING. HE SAYS, MOVE SOMETHING. YOU GOT TO HAVE SOME ACT OF FAITH, AND DID YOU KNOW THAT THIS PERSON THAT WAS IN A COMA FINALLY WIGGLED THEIR LITTLE FINGER. THEIR LITTLE FINGER BEGAN TO TWITCH, AND HE SAYS, THAT’S ENOUGH, AND HE PRAYED FOR THEM, AND ANYWAY, SAW HIM RAISED UP AND HEALED. I’M TELLING YOU, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND. THEY SIT HERE AND PRAY, AND THEY SAY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS I’M HEALED, AND THEN YOU ACT SICK. YOU TALK SICK. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU’RE WELL, YOU GOT TO START ACTING WELL. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. AND IT GOES ON TO SAY IN JAMES, CHAPTER 2 THAT YOU SEE HOW THAT FAITH WROUGHT WITH WORKS, AND BY F…BY WORKS WAS FAITH MADE PERFECT? NOW AGAIN, I COULD SPEND A LOT OF TIME EXPLAINING THAT. I AM NOT SAYING THAT YOU JUST ACTING WELL IS GOING TO CAUSE YOU TO BE WELL. BUT, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE WELL, YOUR FAITH ISN’T GOING TO REACH ITS FULL POTENTIAL UNTIL YOU START ACTING IN AGREEMENT WITH WHAT YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE. YOU KNOW, I HAD AN INSTANCE. I’VE HAD…I’VE HAD THIS HAPPEN MANY TIMES TO ME BUT THERE WAS AN INSTANCE WHEN WE LIVED IN SEAGOVILLE TEXAS AND I WAS OUTSIDE WORKING AROUND AND WE HAD A GARAGE DOOR THAT WHEN YOU OPENED THIS GARAGE DOOR IT HAD A PLACE WHERE IT WOULD GET CAUGHT SOMETIMES, AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD OPEN AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD GET CAUGHT AND IT’D JUST STICK. WELL ANYWAY, I WAS JUST LIFTING THIS GARAGE DOOR AND I JUST JERKED IT UP AND IT HIT THAT SPOT AND IT JUST STOPPED, AND WHEN I DID, IT DID SOMETHING TO MY BACK. I FELL ON THE GROUND. I WAS IN TERRIBLE PAIN. AND MY OLDEST SON, JOSHUA, WAS ONLY A YEAR OLD AND HE WAS OUT THERE WITH ME, AND I COULDN’T EVEN YELL FOR HELP TO JAMIE. I HAD TO JUST WHISPER, AND I SAID, GO GET MOMMY, AND JOSHUA WOULD JUST STAND THERE AND SAY, MOMMY. AND, ANYWAY, I LAID THERE WALLOWING ON THE DRIVEWAY FOR A LONG TIME. FINALLY, JAMIE CAME OUT TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON AND I WHISPERED TO HER THAT I’D HURT MY BACK AND SHE PRAYED FOR ME, AND THEN YANKED ME UP BECAUSE, AGAIN, SHE BELIEVES IN THIS SAME THING. YOU GOT TO ACT LIKE YOU’RE HEALED, SO SHE HELPED ME GET UP. AND ANYWAY, I HAD TERRIBLE PAIN AND MY SHOULDERS WERE THROWN BACK LIKE THIS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, BUT I COULDN’T STRAIGHTEN UP. MYSH…MY SHOULDER BLADES IN THE BACK WERE TOUCHING. AND SO, INSTEAD OF JUST LAYING DOWN OR DOING SOMETHING OR GOING TO A DOCTOR, AGAIN, IT DEPENDS WHERE YOU ARE. I’M NOT SAYING IT WOULD’VE BEEN SIN, BUT I BELIEVE GOD’S BEST WAS FOR ME TO JUST STAND AND BELIEVE. I STARTED EXERCISING. I STARTED DOING SIT-UPS, PUSHUPS. ALL OF THESE THINGS HURT, BUT I JUST WAS RESISTING. AND ANYWAY, I WENT ALL DAY LONG. I FINALLY WENT TO BED BECAUSE I WOULD’VE GONE TO BED IF I’D HAVE BEEN TOTALLY WELL. I FINALLY WENT TO BED, PRAY, I SLEPT GOOD. WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING I WAS LAYING IN BED. THERE WAS NO PAIN, AND I THOUGHT, PRAISE GOD. EVERYTHING’S GOOD. AS SOON AS I STOOD UP, MY SHOULD BLADES WENT BACK LIKE THAT…AND THAT PAIN CAME BACK. AND ANYWAY, IT’S A LONG STORY BUT FINALLY I HAD, I WAS BEING ORDAINED TO THE MINISTRY THAT NIGHT, AND I STARTED TO CALL AND TELL THEM I CAN’T COME, AND I THOUGHT, WELL, THAT’S NOT CONSISTENT WITH BELIEVING THAT I’M HEALED. I BELIEVED THAT I’M HEALED I’M GOING TO GO, AND SO I WENT AHEAD AND STARTED GETTING READY AND I WAS WASHING MY HAIR AND WHEN I PUT MY HEAD OVER LIKE THIS…IS WHEN THE PAIN WAS THE WORST, AND I STARTED TO HAVE JAMIE COME AND WASH MY HAIR FOR ME AND I SAID, NO. IF I WAS HEALED I’D WASH MY OWN HAIR. I DON’T HAVE TO HAVE MY WIFE COME WASH MY HAIR FOR ME AND SO I JUST PUT MY HEAD OVER AND IT HURT AND I WAS PRAYING IN TONGUES, AND SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE FIRST AND THE SECOND RINSE, ALL OF THE PAIN LEFT AND BY THE TIME WE GOT TO THAT MEETING I WAS COMPLETELY NORMAL. AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DID. I NEVER GOT IT DIAGNOSED, BUT I CAN GUARANTEE YOU, IT WAS BAD. I WAS IN BAD SHAPE, AND THAT HAS BEEN 40 YEARS AGO OR SOMETHING AND I HAVE NEVER HAD A BACK PROBLEM. I DO A LOT OF WORK, AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU, IF I’D HAVE GONE THE MEDICAL ROUTE, THEY MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIX IT, BUT I KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE HAD BACK SURGERIES AND THINGS THAT HAVE SUFFERED THE REST OF THEIR LIFE. I BELIEVE THAT SEE, YOU JUST GOT TO ACT ON YOUR FAITH. NOW AGAIN, IF YOUR FAITH ISN’T WHERE MINE IS, I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOU’RE WRONG TO GO AND TAKE A PAINKILLER OR TO GO AND GET SURGERY OR SOMETHING. BUT I’M SAYING WE OUGHT TO BE ACTING AND RESISTING. DON’T JUST SUBMIT. DON’T BECOME PASSIVE. DON’T LET OTHER PEOPLE JUST DICTATE TO YOU. DON’T LET PAIN AND SICKNESS CONTROL YOUR LIFE. YOU KNOW, IF YOU’RE PERSON, I’VE ACTUALLY HAD PEOPLE BEFORE THAT WERE JUST GERMAPHOBIC, I GUESS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE RIGHT WORD IS, BUT THEY JUST WERE THESE PEOPLE THAT WERE COMPULSIVE, AND THEY COULDN’T TOUCH ANYTHING, AND I REMEMBER THIS ONE LADY WHO JUST COULDN’T EVEN THINK OF TOUCHING THE CARPET. MAN, I PRAYED WITH HER AND REBUKED THAT STUFF AND GOT IT OUT OF HER, AND THEN I TOOK HER HAND AND I PUT IT ON THE CARPET AND STARTED MOVING IT AROUND. AND AT FIRST, SHE RES…RE… REACTED TO THAT LIKE, NO, THIS IS THE WORST THING SHE COULD POSSIBLY DO, BUT I WAS HELPING HER RESIST HER FEAR, AND YOU KNOW WHAT, SHE GOT OVER IT. IF YOU BELIEVED THAT GOD HAS SET YOU FREE, EVENTUALLY YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO START ACTING IN FAITH, AND AGAIN, PLEASE DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I’M SAYING. I AM NOT AGAINST DOCTORS. IF IT WASN’T FOR DOCTORS ALL THE CHRISTIANS WOULD BE DEAD, BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T BEEN STANDING AND BELIEVING GOD, AND SO I’M NOT AGAINST DOCTORS. I’M NOT AGAINST MEDICATION, BUT I’M SAYING THAT’S NOT GOD’S BEST. AND INSTEAD OF JUST PASSIVELY SUBMITTING, YOU NEED TO ACT. THIS WOMAN HEARD ABOUT JESUS, BUT THEN SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THERE WAS PEOPLE THRONGING JESUS. IT WASN’T EASY FOR HER TO GET THROUGH THAT CROWD. PLUS SHE HAD AN ISSUE OF BLOOD. SHE COULD’VE BEEN STONED TO DEATH IF PEOPLE WOULD’VE KNOWN WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER. SHE PUT HER LIFE ON THE LINE. SHE WASN’T PASSIVE AT ALL, AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS THAT I SEE IN THE PEOPLE THAT I MINISTER HEALING TO IS JUST A PASSIVENESS. THEY JUST SAY, WELL, I KNOW THAT GOD CAN HEAL. IF HE WANTS TO HEAL ME, HE WILL. NO, THAT’S NOT THE WAY IT WORKS. THAT’S LIKE A PERSON SAYING, WELL, IF GOD WANTS TO SAVE ME, HE’LL SAVE ME. NO, JESUS HAS ALREADY SAVED YOU. HE’S ALREADY DIED FOR YOUR SINS, AND NOW, YOU HAVE TO CONFESS. YOU HAVE TO MAKE HIM LORD. YOU HAVE TO REACH OUT AND TAKE THAT SALVATION. YOU KNOW WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID, MY FAMILY WENT TO CHURCH EVERY TIME THE DOORS WERE OPEN. WE WERE LIKE SKUNKS. WE HAD OUR OWN PEW, AMEN? THAT WAS OUR PEW. WE SAT IN THAT PLACE, AND IT WAS ON THE FRONT ROW, AND THAT’S THE WAY I GREW UP. BUT, I WAS IN A VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL AND THERE WAS ABOUT 600 KIDS IN THIS THING, AND WE MARCHED IN ACCORDING TO OUR GROUPS AND SAT WITH OUR CLASSES, AND I WAS ON THE VERY BACK OF THIS AUDITORIUM WITH 600 KIDS IN THERE. AND THERE WAS A MAN WHO STOOD UP AND HE TOOK ONE DOLLAR, AND BACK WHEN I WAS A KID A DOLLAR WAS A LOT OF MONEY. THAT WAS MY WHOLE WEEK’S ALLOWANCE, AND HE TOOK ONE DOLLAR AND HELD IT IN THE AIR, AND HE SAYS, I’LL GIVE THIS DOLLAR BILL TO THE FIRST KID WHO COMES UP HERE AND TAKES IT. AND INSTANTLY, ALL OF THESE KIDS THAT WERE AT THE FRONT, RAN UP THERE. THERE WAS 20 OR 30 KIDS AROUND HIM JUST SAYING, I WANT IT, I WANT IT. AND I THOUGHT, OF ALL OF THE TIMES TO BE SITTING AT THE BACK OF THE CHURCH, THIS WAS THE WORST TIME. BUT THIS GUY JUST KEPT HIS HAND IN THE AIR LIKE THIS… AND HE SAYS, I’LL GIVE THIS DOLLAR BILL TO THE FIRST KID THAT COMES UP HERE AND TAKES IT. AND EVERYBODY WAS WONDERING, WHAT’S HE TALKING ABOUT? THEY’RE ALL UP THERE. THEY ALL WANT IT. BUT HE JUST KEPT REPEATING THIS OVER AND OVER. AND FINALLY, IT HIT MY LIGHTNING FAST MIND WHAT THIS GUY WAS SAYING. I…I RAN OUT OF MY PEW. I RAN DOWN THE…THE…TO THE FRONT OF THE CHURCH. I PUSHED MY WAY THROUGH THESE KIDS AND THIS GUY HAD HIS ARM UP LIKE THIS…AND I REACHED UP AND GRABBED HIS ARM AND CLIMBED UP HIS SIDE AND I REACHED UP THERE AND GRABBED THAT DOLLAR BILL OUT OF HIS HAND. AND HE SAID, NOW, ALL OF YOU WANTED IT, BUT HE SAYS, THAT’S THE FIRST KID THAT CAME UP HERE AND TOOK IT, AND HE WAS USING THAT TO ILLUSTRATE THAT JESUS HAS PROVIDED SALVATION. HE’S OFFERING IT, BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT. YOU CAN’T JUST SAY, I WANT IT. YOU CAN’T PASSIVELY ASK GOD TO SAVE YOU. YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT JESUS IS LORD, AND…AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE SAVED. YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT BY FAITH, AND SEE, THAT’S WHAT I DID, AND YOU KNOW THAT WAS AN ILLUSTRATION THAT IT WASN’T LONG AFTER THAT UNTIL I GOT BORN AGAIN. THAT REALLY IMPRESSED ME. WELL IT’S THE SAME THING WITH HEALING. I SEE PEOPLE THAT SAY, OH, GOD, I KNOW THAT YOU CAN HEAL. I ASK YOU TO HEAL ME. WOULD YOU STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND IF IT BE YOUR WILL? PRETTY PLEASE HEAL ME? YOU’RE GOING TO DIE PRAYING LIKE THAT. YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT GOD HAS DONE IT. THAT’S HEARING. YOU HAVE TO HEAR THE TRUTH. I’M TELLING YOU THAT BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN HEALED AND THAT HEALING MIRACULOUS POWER IS DEPOSITED ON THE INSIDE OF YOU IF YOU ARE BORN AGAIN. YOU HAVE TO HEAR THAT, BUT THEN, YOU HAVE TO ACT. SHE NOT ONLY HEARD, BUT THEN SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND. SHE ACTED ON THE WORD. AND THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT’LL SAY, OH, GOD, I KNOW YOU CAN, AND THEY MAY EVEN SAY, I BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE DONE IT, BUT THEN ALL OF THEIR ACTIONS ARE CONTRARY. IF THIS WOMAN WOULD’VE JUST SAT AT HOME AND HAVE SAID, WELL MAN, I’VE HEARD ABOUT JESUS, AND I BELIEVE IF I COULD TOUCH THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT, I’LL BE MADE WHOLE, AND IF SHE, SHE COULD’VE BELIEVED IT. SHE COULD’VE TALKED ABOUT IT. SHE COULD’VE TOLD OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT IT, BUT IF SHE WOULD’VE STAYED AT HOME, AND HAVE NEVER COME, AND HAVE GONE THROUGH THAT CROWD, AND FOUGHT HER WAY THROUGH ALL OF THE OPPOSITION, AND HAD TOUCHED THE HEM OF JESUS’ GARMENT, SHE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN HEALED. SHE HAD TO ACT ON IT. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. AND THERE ARE SOME OF YOU THAT ARE BELIEVING GOD FOR HEALING, BUT YOU AREN’T ACTING HEALED. GET UP OUT OF YOUR WHEELCHAIR. IF YOU CAN’T STAND, IF YOU’RE A QUADRIPLEGIC, WELL THEN MOVE SOMETHING. DO SOMETHING. BELIEVE GOD TO MOVE YOUR BIG TOE, YOUR LITTLE FINGER, AND ONCE THAT STARTS MOVING, WELL THEN MOVE THE NEXT ONE AND START DOING SOMETHING. YOU RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE’LL FLEE FROM YOU. YOU RESIST SICKNESS AND THAT SICKNESS WILL FLEE FROM YOU BUT START DOING SOMETHING. DO WHAT YOU CAN DO. IF YOU CAN’T DO IT ALL, DO PART OF IT. THE LORD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOUR FAITH IS BUT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. YOU’VE GOT TO START ACTING WELL. >> ON SEPTEMBER 16TH THROUGH THE 21ST GUEST SPEAKER ANDREW WOMMACK WILL JOIN PASTOR DEAN MELTON AT THE FINAL FREEDOM CHRISTIAN CENTER CAMP MEETING.

WE’RE NOW IN THE AUDITORIUM AND I’M STANDING ON THE STAGE AND YOU CAN’T REALLY TELL IT BECAUSE THEY’VE GOT A LOT OF IT COVERED, BUT WE DO HAVE CARPET ON THE STAGE NOW AND THEY HAVE PUT A LOT OF THE WOODWORK ON THE STAGE. THE MOST NOTABLE THING IS THAT WE’VE GOT 2000 OF OUR 3200 SEATS ALREADY INSTALLED. THEY STILL HAVE PLASTIC OVER IT, BUT THIS GIVES YOU A LITTLE BIT OF IDEA ABOUT HOW IT’LL LOOK. SO, WE’RE GOING TO WALK DOWN TO THE END OF THIS HALLWAY AND SHOW YOU WHERE OUR WATERFALL IS. WE’RE NOW DOWN IN FRONT OF OUR WATERFALL HERE. YOU NOTICE THAT THE LOGO IS UP SINCE THE LAST TIME THAT WE DID A CONSTRUCTION UPDATE, AND THIS IS WHERE THE TRAFFIC WILL FLOW BETWEEN THE TWO BUILDINGS. OVER HERE, YOU COULDN’T SEE THIS VERY WELL LAST TIME BECAUSE THEY WERE PUTTING UP THE MOSS ROCK AND THEY HAD SCAFFOLDING ALL UP HERE, BUT THESE FOUR OPENINGS THAT YOU SEE IN THE UPPER LEVEL OF THE BARN WILL COME IN RIGHT THERE, AND BEHIND THE WATERFALL, FROM WAY OVER THERE WHERE YOU CAN SEE THOSE…THAT GLASS WITH THE X MARKED ON IT IN THE BLUE TAPE, FROM THERE, ALL THE WAY AROUND BEHIND THE WATERFALL AND ALL THE WAY OVER HERE, THIS IS ALL OUR BOOKSTORE. BUT LET ME JUST TELL YOU WHILE WE’RE HERE, THAT WE STILL HAVE $1.3 MILLION TO PAY ON THIS BUILDING AND THAT’S NOT INCLUDING THE RETAINAGES. THE RETAINAGES ARE $1.6 MILLION AND THEY WILL BE PAID OUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH OCTOBER, SO WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME TO COME UP WITH THAT. I WANT TO TAKE YOU OUT AND SHOW YOU SOME OF THE CONSTRUCTION ON GA THAT’S BEING DONE. OKAY, WE’RE NOW OUT ON THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF OUR AUDITORIUM. RIGHT BEHIND ME, THEY ARE BEGINNING TO POUR OUR PARKING GARAGE, SO AWESOME THINGS ARE HAPPENING. THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF IT AND GOD BLESS YOU. WE’LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER CONSTRUCTION UPDATE IN ABOUT A MONTH. [END] >> Announcer: FROM A RECENT VISIT TO OUR NATION’S CAPITAL, GARY AND DRENDA WANNA SHARE AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR, SPEAKER, AND FOUNDER OF REVIVAL MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE. >> SO THE I.R.S. POLICES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO GET THE MONEY TO PAY BACK THE FEDERAL RESERVE BECAUSE BEFORE THAT, WE NEVER EVEN HAD TAXATION, AND YET WE WERE THE RICHEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. >> YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE TIMES AND PREPARED FOR WHAT IS TO COME. LET’S GET A FINANCIAL UPDATE NOW, ON FIXING THE MONEY THING. >> I’M GARY KEESEE. FOR NINE YEARS, I HAD DEBT I COULDN’T PAY, WHICH BROUGHT ON PANIC ATTACKS, ANTIDEPRESSANTS, UNTIL THE KINGDOM OF GOD DRASTICALLY CHANGED MY LIFE. AND I WANNA HELP YOU FIX THE MONEY THING. >> AMERICA’S FINANCIAL COACH, GARY KEESEE, WANTS TO MENTOR YOU IN THE KINGDOM PRINCIPLES THAT WILL SET YOU FREE. >> IF YOU PUT GOD’S PRINCIPLES IN PLACE, YOU WILL PROSPER. >> THIS IS GARY KEESEE, FIXING THE MONEY THING. >> I’M HERE IN WASHINGTON, DC, THAT’S THE SEAT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THAT’S WHERE ALL THE DECISIONS ARE MADE. EVERY DECISION MADE HERE, OF COURSE, AFFECTS THE COUNTRY, AFFECTS YOU, AFFECTS ALL THE CITIZENS. WE RAN INTO A GOOD FRIEND OF OURS AT THE TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL. HE HAS A BRAND-NEW BOOK OUT AND WE SPENT SOME TIME WITH HIM TALKING ABOUT IT. IT WAS AN AMAZING BOOK ABOUT MONEY, GOVERNMENT, CORRUPTION, AND POWER. DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE MET US FOR A FEW MOMENTS. LET’S TAKE A LISTEN TO THAT. >> WE ARE VERY, VERY PLEASED AND HONORED TO HAVE WITH US TODAY, A SCHOLAR, AN EVANGELIST, WHO’S TRAVELED THE WORLD PREACHING THE GOSPEL, BUT YOUR PREACHING A GOSPEL NOW ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE, ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS OF TRUTH COMING OUT CONCERNING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. YOUR BOOK: “THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM”, RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE, WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM. >> THANK YOU. >> AND YOU’VE CAUGHT MY ATTENTION, YOU’RE PREACHING A DIFFERENT, WELL, IT’S NOT A DIFFERENT GOSPEL, BUT YOU’RE PREACHING A DIFFERENT MESSAGE THAN I’VE EVER HEARD YOU PREACH. IN DETAIL WITH ALL KINDS OF EXAMPLES AT WHAT’S HAPPENING TO AMERICA IN THIS NEW BOOK, WHICH IS COMING OUT, “THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM”, FOLLOW THE MONEY IS WHAT YOU’RE CALLING IT. IT’S WHAT WE DO, RIGHT? FOLLOW THE MONEY TELLS US WHAT’S HAPPENING. >> IT’LL TELL YOU EVERYTHING. >> SO, TELLS US — THIS BOOK. TELL ME ABOUT THE BOOK. WHAT IS IT ABOUT? >> WELL, ACTUALLY IT’S A COLLABORATION BETWEEN MYSELF AND MY CO-AUTHOR, PAUL WILLIAMS, DR. PAUL WILLIAMS. WHEN I CAME, I STARTED TEACHING ON THIS PROBABLY 10 YEARS AGO AND TO OUR CHURCH AND JUST HELPING THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. BUT IN 2014, I CAME TO WASHINGTON, DC. WE RENTED CONSTITUTION HALL FOR 14 NIGHTS AND I EXPOSED A LOT OF THE STUFF THAT WAS TAKING PLACE. AFTER ONE OF THE SESSIONS, DR. WILLIAMS CAME TO ME. HE SAID, “LISTEN, I’M A SCRIBE. THAT’S ALL I DO. I RESEARCH AND SCRIBE.” HE SAID, “I NEED TO HELP YOU. WE NEED TO PUT THIS THING DOWN INTO PAPER, SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY READ IT.” SO, HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT THE TITLE THAT, I SAID THAT IT’S GONNA BE CALLED “THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM”, THAT’S THE CONSTITUTION THERE WITH THE FLAG AND THE SWORD GOING THROUGH WITH THE BLOOD BECAUSE — AND THAT WAS THE FIRST DESIGN. WE NEVER EVEN CHANGED IT. >> OH, YEAH, THAT’S AWESOME. IT’S GOOD. I SEE IT. >> SO, BASICALLY, HERE’S THE PROBLEM. I COME FROM SOUTH AFRICA. SO, WHEN I LEFT SOUTH AFRICA, I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG. BECAUSE YOU’RE JUST FED THIS LINE OF INFORMATION THAT YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE, THIS IS JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE. BUT WHEN I BEGAN TO STUDY IT WHEN I GOT HERE, I FOUND OUT THAT CECIL JOHN RHODES HAD BEEN USED ALONG WITH OTHERS THAT HAD BEEN FUNDED BY THE ROTHSCHILD TO SECURE THE DIAMOND FIELD FOR DE BEERS AND THE GOLD FIELD FOR ANGLO AMERICAN. SO, EVEN TODAY, SOUTH AFRICANS DON’T KNOW THEIR DIAMONDS OR THEIR GOLD. IT’S ALL OWNED BY THESE TWO CORPORATIONS. WHICH THE WHOLE PLIGHT OF AFRICA IS ABOUT PLUNDERING NATURAL RESOURCES. >> YEAH, YEA. >> I MEAN, EVEN THE CONGO RIGHT NOW SITS ON 24 TRILLION, JUST UNDER CONGO, IN THE GROUND. YET, THE PEOPLE ARE IN TOTAL ABJECT POVERTY. >> RIGHT. >> YET THE MINING COMPANIES ARE SUCKING THIS STUFF OUT. EVEN ZIMBABWE THAT DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A CURRENCY, THE PLANES ARE FLYING OUT CARRYING THE DIAMONDS. SO, YOU KNOW, IT’S ABOUT A FEW PEOPLE RUNNING THE PLANET. BUT BEHIND ALL OF THAT WHEN WE GET TO LOOK AT IT, YOU BEGIN TO SEE THAT THE WORLD IS ACTUALLY RUN BY THE PRIVATE CENTRAL BANKS OF THE WORLD AND SO, WHEN CECIL JOHN RHODES AND YOU’VE HEARD OF THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP, PEOPLE GET A RHODES SCHOLARSHIP, IT’S BECAUSE YOU’RE PART OF THIS SPECIAL CLUB AND HE WAS THE ONE THAT SAID WE CAN ACTUALLY GET AMERICA BACK IF WE FOLLOW THESE PRINCIPLES. IT WAS A WHOLE ANGLO-SAXON THING, YOU KNOW WHERE ENGLAND WAS RULING THE BRAVES. I MEAN, THERE WASN’T A PLACE YOU COULDN’T GO WHERE THE UNION JACK WASN’T FLYING IN AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND. >> NEVER SET ON THE EMPIRE. >> SURE. AND SO ALL OF THIS WAS TRUE THAT WHILE THEY CAME OVER HERE AND CONVERTED CARNEGIE. THEY CONVERTED CARNEGIE AND WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY STARTED, HE BEGAN TO FUND THROUGH THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION, ACTUALLY IT BECAME THE CHARTER FOR THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS, WHICH NOW IS THE UNITED NATIONS, TODAY, AND A SOUTH AFRICAN ACTUALLY WROTE THE CHARTER FOR THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS, A GUY CALLED JAN SMUTS, WHO WAS ACTUALLY CLOSE TO WINSTON CHURCHILL AND IF SOMETHING HAD HAPPENED TO CHURCHILL, SMUTS, A SOUTH AFRICAN AFRICANA WOULD HAVE BEEN PRIME MINISTER OF ENGLAND. THERE’S A STATUE OF HIM IN LONDON. HE RODE DOWN THE MALL WITH THE QUEEN. >> AWESOME, YEAH. >> YEAH, SO ANYWAY, SO, WHICH IS NOT GREAT FOR ME BECAUSE THEY’VE CHOSEN A TRAITOR, THE HEIGHT — THESE PEOPLE THE HIGHEST LEVEL SELL THEIR COUNTRIES OUT. SO, I KNOW THERE’S SO MUCH INFORMATION IN HERE, BUT WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY FOUND WOODROW WILSON, WHO WAS THE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT AND BASICALLY CONSCRIPTED HIM THAT HE WOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THEN HE WAS THE ONE THAT SIGNED IN THE BILL ON THE 23RD OF DECEMBER 1913, THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK AND THE IRS ACT, WHICH BOTH ARE INDEPENDENT AGENCIES. SO, THE IRS POLICES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO GET THE MONEY TO PAY BACK THE FEDERAL RESERVE BECAUSE BEFORE THAT, WE NEVER EVEN HAD TAXATION, AND YET WE WERE THE RICHEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. NOW, IF YOU KNOW ANYBODY LIKE ANDREW JACKSON DEFEATED THE CENTRAL BANK. THEY TRIED TO KILL HIM. >> RIGHT. >> AND ANYONE THAT CAME ALONG THAT WAS AGAINST CENTRAL BANKS, THEY WANTED TO KILL. >> J.F.K. >> THEY MURDERED HIM. AND AS YOU KNOW, OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT HAS NOT RELEASED THE FULL NAMES BECAUSE THEY WOULD HAVE TO ARREST CERTAIN PEOPLE RIGHT NOW THAT ARE STILL ALIVE. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE WAITING ‘TIL 2022 — ‘CAUSE THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO PICK ‘EM UP AND PUT ‘EM IN GUANTANAMO BECAUSE THIS THING, THE CORRUPTION IS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS. >> AND IT’S INTERNATIONAL. >> IT’S TOTALLY, IT’S A GLOBAL CABAL AND AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS, THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WORSHIPPED LUCIFER. >> SO, YOU’RE SAYING THAT THE KILLING, THE CHANGING OF AMERICA’S WEALTH, THE CHANGES IN THE COUNTRY, IS ALL ABOUT MOVING MONEY, ALL ABOUT THE MONEY THAT’S SOME — A LIMITED NUMBER OF PEOPLE WERE IN CONTROL OF AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. >> ALL THE WAY BACK TO OUR INDEPENDENCE. ONCE WE BECAME AN INDEPENDENT NATION, THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, THERE WAS A PLOT AND A MOVE TO TAKE BACK AMERICA BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY AND CONTROLLING THE PEOPLE. >> THEY WERE UPSET. THEY HAD LOST US. OUR FLAG WAS FLYING, BUT — >> OKAY, OKAY. >> — SHOULDN’T EVEN BE HERE. THERE’S NO WAYS THAT WE SHOULD HAVE DEFEATED THE BRITISH MONARCHY. BUT THE HAND OF GOD WAS ON THIS LAND. SO THEN, SO NOW COMES THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND YOU SEE WHAT TOOK PLACE. SO, THEN THE FED BAILED OUT, WHICH WE TALK ABOUT IN THE BOOK, BAILED OUT THE WORLD IN 1934, RIGHT AFTER THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THE REST OF THE COUNTRIES WERE CONCERNED THAT THE DEPRESSION WOULD COME THERE. AND SO, THEY SAID, “NO, NO, DON’T WORRY.” THEY PRINTED FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS, PUT THEM IN BOXES AND PUT THEM IN ALL THE CENTRAL BANKS OF THE WORLD. AND THESE INSTRUMENTS WERE 34-YEAR NOTES PAYABLE AT 4% INTEREST DUE IN 1967. >> OKAY. I GOTTA STOP THERE BECAUSE I’VE NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE AND I WANNA MAKE SURE WE UNDERSTAND. SO, AT THE END OF THE DEPRESSION, TO HELP THE WORLD COME OUT OF THIS, WE SENT TO OTHER CENTRAL BANKS, NOT HERE IN THE US. >> NO. >> OTHER NATIONS SENT BOXES. >> INSTRUMENTS. >> INSTRUMENTS OF WHAT? CURRENCY, OR? >> CURRENCY AT THAT TIME BECAUSE — AND NOW EVERYTHING’S DONE ELECTRONICALLY. >> YEAH. >> OBLIVIOUS WITH DIGITAL STUFF AND THEY’RE PLAYING AROUND. NOW, THEY’RE UPSET ABOUT CRYPTOS COMING ON ‘CAUSE THEY CAN’T STOP THAT BECAUSE OF BLOCK-CHAIN. >> YEAH. >> THAT’S WHY THEY’RE TRYING TO COLLAPSE THE CRYPTO CURRENCY AT THIS JUNCTURE. BUT, SO, THEN THEY PUT THAT IN ALL THE CENTRAL BANKS AND SAID, “PRINT YOUR MONEY BACKED BY THE DOLLAR.” THAT’S WHY THE DOLLAR BECAME THE CURRENCY OF THE WORLD AND THAT’S WHY SWITZERLAND WAS NEUTRAL DURING THE WAR AND NOBODY TOUCHED SWITZERLAND. THEY FOUGHT AROUND SWITZERLAND. THEY NEVER TOUCHED SWITZERLAND BECAUSE SWITZERLAND WAS FUNDING BOTH SIDES. YOU SEE? >> THE MIDDLE MAN. >> YEAH, BECAUSE THEIR BANKERS MAKE MONEY OFF OF WAR. THEY DON’T MAKE MONEY OFF OF PEACE. BECAUSE IF A COUNTRY — THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT YOU SHALL LEND TO MANY NATIONS, SHALL NO BORROW. WELL, AND NO NATION’S GONNA BORROW IF IT’S ALREADY OUT OF DEBT. THEN THERE’S NO PROBLEM. BUT IF YOU HAVE A WAR, THEN YOU HAVE TO BUY TANKS AND ARMAMENTS AND ALL THIS — >> TRUE, THAT’S GOOD. >> SO THEN THE BANKERS ACTUALLY TRAINED THE DISSIDENCE TO SEND THEM IN LATER TO CAUSE THE PROBLEMS SO NOW SUDDENLY A NATION THAT HAD TOTAL PEACE, NOW IS HAVING GREAT CONFLICT. >> AND WE STILL SEE THAT TODAY. >> IT’S HAPPENING. >> THROUGH PROTESTS AND MOVEMENTS THAT ARE PAID FOR BY OUTSIDE ORGANIZATIONS. >> IT’S TAKING PLACE RIGHT IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW. THEY’RE TRYING TO CAUSE THAT TO COME TO PASS. BUT, I MEAN, THE ONLY RESTRAINING FORCE IS THE CHURCH, THE BODY OF CHRIST. YOU KNOW, BECAUSE AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS PEOPLE, THEY’RE LOVE OF MONEY, WHICH THE BIBLE SAYS IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL IS THAT WHICH IS CORRUPTED IN EVERY AREA OF OUR SOCIETY FROM OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM TO OUR MEDICAL, AGRICULTURE. EVEN OUR JUDGES, OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM WITH JUDGES LEGISLATING FROM THE BENCHES. IT’S THE CRAZIEST THING NOW. SO, WE NEED A REFORMATION, NOT A REVOLUTION WITH THE GOVERNMENT, BUT WE NEED A REFORMATION, MUCH LIKE WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE REFORMATION TOOK PLACE 500 YEARS AGO. >> ARE THE ELECTIONS BOUGHT OFF? ARE THEY RIGGED? >> WELL, I THINK THIS LAST ONE DIDN’T TURN OUT THE WAY THEY WANTED TO. >> THAT’S OBVIOUS. >> — AND HERE’S THE THING. YOU KNOW, MAYBE… OF COURSE, YOUR AUDIENCE. I MEAN, I JUST TALK THE WAY I TALK. SO, YOU CAN, YOU CAN APOLOGIZE LATER. >> THEY’RE ON BOARD. >> HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND, THE BUSHES AND THE CLINTONS ARE ACTUALLY FRIENDS. THEY’RE HOUSEHOLD FRIENDS. OKAY, SO THAT’S THE SCAM. AND EVEN WHEN MANDELA DIED, NELSON MANDELA DIED, AIR FORCE ONE WENT TO SOUTH AFRICA. ON BOARD AIR FORCE: BUSHES, CLINTONS, AND THE OBAMAS AND THEY’RE ALL SITTING AROUND LAUGHING. BUSH IS SHOWING HIS PAINTINGS, HILLARY’S LAUGHING — THE WHOLE THING’S A SCAM ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. BOTH PARTIES ARE ACTUALLY WORKING FOR THE SAME PEOPLE. SO, THEY’RE TWO HEADS OF THE SAME SNAKE. THAT’S WHY THE CURRENT, OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT TRUMP CAME ALONG AND THEY COULDN’T STOP HIM. THEY COULD NOT STOP HIM. EVEN WITH 2 BILLION DOLLARS AND AN ARRAY OF ALL THE MEDIA AND EVERYTHING COULDN’T STOP HIM. BECAUSE I BELIEVE GOD HEARD THAT CRY OF THE CHURCH TO SAY, “GIVE US A LAST-MINUTE REPRIEVE, WHICH IS WHAT WE’VE BEEN PRAYING… >> TIME. >> …FOR. SO, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN SEE NOW THE FEDS PLAYING WITH THE INTEREST RATES, TRYING TO STOP CERTAIN THINGS FROM HAPPENING. BUT IN ESSENCE, YOU AND I KNOW, THEY CAN COLLAPSE THE DOLLAR TOMORROW. THEY CAN COLLAPSE WALL STREET, WHICH I WAS CONCERNED WHEN I HEARD THE PRESIDENT TALK ABOUT THE DOW JONES IS DOING GREAT. I WANNA SAY, “NO, MR. PRESIDENT, DO NOT TALK ABOUT THAT.” BECAUSE IT’S ALL NUMBERS. THIS IS JUST FLUFF AND NUMBERS. AND IT’S FAKE. SO, I REMEMBER QUANTITATIVE EASING, 85 BILLION DOLLARS A MONTH. YOU KNOW WHERE THAT WAS GOING? NOT — >> TO THE BANKS, WASN’T IT? >> IT WAS GETTING SUCKED THROUGH WALL STREET. >> RIGHT. >> IT WAS BEING SUCKED THROUGH WALL STREET TO OFF-SHORE BANKING CABAL. AND SO EVEN NOW, THERE’S ONLY — WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY’RE DOING WITH THAT NOW, WHICH I THINK THEY’RE USING THAT TO TRY TO DESTROY BITCOIN AND A COUPLE OTHER BANKS, BUT THE CORRUPTION IS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS AND THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND. THEY THINK THIS IS LIKE A LOW CRIMINAL, LIKE, I SAID IT EVEN IN THE FRONT OF THE BOOK, BERNIE MADOFF, WHICH WAS REPORTED TO BE THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY, THE CRIME OF ALL CRIMES. NO, NO, THE CRIME OF ALL CRIMES IS PRIVATE CENTRAL BANKS. THEY CAN CREATE MONEY FROM NOTHING AND THEN CHARGE YOU AND I INTEREST ON IT. THIS IS THE ATROCITY AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS. AND THEY CARE NOTHING FOR HUMANITY. THERE’S NO REASON FOR GLOBAL POVERTY. THERE’S NO REASON FOR ANY OF THE STUFF. IT’S ALL RECREATED SO THAT A COUPLE PEOPLE, THEY CARE NOTHING FOR PEOPLE, THE WICKEDNESS IS BEYOND IMAGINATION AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO PULL BACK THE CURTAINS, YOU BEGIN TO SEE THAT AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS, IT’S THE LUCIFERIAN STRUCTURE OF THE GLOBE. AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS, THEY WORSHIP LUCIFER AND THEY’VE ALREADY SOLD THEIR SOUL. SO, IN OTHER WORDS, JUST LIKE THE DEVIL CAME TO JESUS, TOOK HIM TO THE HIGHER MOUNTAIN AND SAID, “I’LL GIVE YOU ALL THESE KINGDOMS,” HE’S VISITED THEM, AND THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOUL TO THE DEVIL. >> MORE WITH OUR GUEST, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE AFTER THIS. >> THE STOCK MARKET IS UP, UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOWN, WHERE’S INFLATION? IT’S TIME FOR AN UPDATE. >> SO, WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AMERICA?

CALL, WRITE, OR LOG ON AND GET TODAY’S FINANCIAL UPDATE RESOURCES NOW. ♪ ♪ >> LET’S RETURN TO OUR NATION’S CAPITAL FOR MORE FROM OUR VERY SPECIAL GUEST, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE, NOW ON FIXING THE MONEY THING. >> NOW, HERE’S THE THING, THERE’S ONLY 7% OF CASH IN CIRCULATION IN AMERICA. >> THAT’S WHAT I’VE HEARD. >> THERE’S 4% IN ENGLAND. THAT MEANS IF EVERY AMERICAN GOES TO THE BANK TOMORROW AND SAYS, “I’D LIKE MY MONEY.” THEY DON’T HAVE IT. AND EVEN NOW, YOU ARE LIMITED ON MONEY YOU CAN CARRY INTERNATIONALLY, $10,000. EVERYTHING IS DIGITAL. THEY WANT YOU TO STAY IN THEIR PLACE. SO, IF YOU WENT TO THE BANKS TOMORROW AND SAID, “I WANT $50,000 CASH.” THEY’D SAY, “FOR WHAT?” >> WE’VE DONE THAT AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO. >> 5,000, THEY SAY… WE DON’T HAVE IT. >> IT’LL TAKE THREE DAYS. >> $5,000.00, THEY DIDN’T HAVE IN OUR BANK. >> BUT THEN IF YOU GET IN YOUR CAR AND DRIVE DOWN THE ROAD AND THEY PULL YOU OVER, THEY CAN CONFISCATE THE CASH ‘TIL YOU PROVE WHERE IT’S FROM. SO, THE PROBLEM THAT YOU’RE DEALING WITH IS THAT THE NOOSE IS GETTING TIGHTER AND TIGHTER. SO, IF THE DOLLAR COLLAPSES, WHICH IS MY CONCERN. THERE WERE THREE THINGS THAT WAS MY BIGGEST CONCERN FROM THE 2014 PERIOD WAS THE COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR, THE COLLAPSE OF WALL STREET, WHICH THEY CAN DO ON PURPOSE OR AN E.M.P. ATTACK ON AMERICA, WHICH WOULD BLOW OUT THE GRID AND KNOCK ALL THE COMPUTERS BACK — WE’D BE OUT OF COMMISSION FOR 18 MONTHS — YOU HAVE PEOPLE SAY, “WELL, THAT’S AN ALARMIST THING.” BUT CONGRESS HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT. I KNOW THE TALKING POINTS. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WARNING PEOPLE, THE VULNERABILITIES OF AMERICA WHERE WE ARE VULNERABLE. >> RIGHT. >> SO, THOMAS JEFFERSON SAID IN 1802, THE AMERICAN WILL EVER ALLOW THE PRIVATE BANKS TO CONTROL THE ISSUE OF THEIR CURRENCY, FIRST BY INFLATION AND THEN BY DEFLATION. THE BANKS AND THE COMPANIES THAT WILL SPRING UP AROUND THEM WILL DEPRIVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OF THEIR PROPERTY ‘TIL THEY WAKE UP HOMELESS ON A CONTINENT THEIR FATHERS CONQUERED. >> ON THAT POINT. >> HMM. “HOMELESS ON CONTINENT THAT THEIR FATHERS CONQUERED.” >> WHAT MOST AMERICAN’S DON’T REALIZE IS RIGHT NOW THEIR MONEY IS BEING STOLEN SILENTLY THROUGH INFLATION, WHICH IS NOT BY ACCIDENT, BUT IS PLANNED, IS THAT RIGHT? >> TOTAL. >> IT’S TOTALLY –. >> THE DOLLAR, I BELIEVE, IS WORTH 4% OF WHAT IT USED TO BE. >> RIGHT. >> SO, BETWEEN PEOPLE USING DEBT AND YOU KNOW, CREDIT… CREDIT CARDS MAX — >> AND THE PROBLEM — >> AND INFLATION, THEY’RE LOSING. >> CORRECT. AND IT’S ACTUALLY A DEBASED CURRENCY. IF YOU PAID OFF AMERICA’S DEBT, LIKE WE SAY, “OKAY, WELL, WE’LL PAY OFF THE DEBT OF AMERICA, ” YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO PAY IT OFF BECAUSE IT WOULD COLLAPSE THE WHOLE SYSTEM, WHICH IS BASED ON DEBT. THE BANKS HAVE THE ABILITY AND THE POWER GIVEN TO THEM FROM THE 1913 AGREEMENT, WHICH MEANS THEY CAN PRINT MONEY OUT OF NOTHING AND THEN TURN AROUND AND CHARGE AMERICA INTEREST ON IT. THAT’S WHY YOUR NOTE SAYS FEDERAL RESERVE –. >> YEAH, THAT’S WHAT THEY DO. >> AND I’VE HEARD YOU SAY FOR YEARS ABOUT TRILLIONS, THERE’S NO WAY TO PAY BACK. >> THERE’S NO WAY TO PAY IT BACK. >> WE’VE REACHED THE POINT OF NO RETURN. >> WE CAN’T EVEN COUNT HOW MANY TRILLIONS. IF YOU WERE COUNTING YOU KNOW, ONE, TWO, THREE, YOU COULDN’T COUNT IT IN A LIFETIME. >> YOU COULDN’T COUNT THAT HIGH. BUT LET’S GO BACK TO THE PETRODOLLAR. LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THAT MANEUVER TOOK PLACE OFF THE GOLD STANDARD AND ALL THESE THINGS THAT TOOK PLACE. WAS THAT PART OF THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS AND PRESIDENT NIXON CALLED THAT AND DID ALL THAT? >> WELL, IT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE BEFORE. BECAUSE HERE, IF YOU REMEMBER ROOSEVELT TOOK US OFF OF THE GOLD. >> HE TOOK US OFF THE GOLD. >> AND CONFISCATED IT, YEAH. >> YEAH, WHICH THEY CAN DO AGAIN BY THE WAY. EVERYONE SAYS INVEST IN GOLD AND SILVER, THEY CAN COME COLLECT THAT TOMORROW. SO, THE PROBLEM THAT WE’RE DEALING WITH IS THAT THE POWERS THAT BE, THEY CAN DO ANYTHING. THEY’RE ABOVE THE LAW. >> THAT’S TRUE. >> THEY’RE TOTALLY ABOVE THE LAW. SO, AS I WAS SAYING LIKE BERNIE MADOFF WAS THE CRIME OF ALL CRIMES, WHICH IT WAS WHAT, A HUNDRED BILLION. NO, NO, WE’RE DEALING WITH PEOPLE THAT HAVE TAKEN TENS UPON TENS OF TRILLIONS. THERE’S TRILLIONS. I MEAN, RIGHT BEFORE 9/11, RUMSFELD SAID THERE WAS 2.3 TRILLION MISSING FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, THE DAY BEFORE 9/11 HE ANNOUNCED. THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, THERE’S A BIG MISTAKE IN ALL OF THE AUDITING AND EVERYTHING. WE’RE MISSING 2.3 TRILLION DOLLARS. THAT WAS JUST IN THE D.O.D.

FIXING THE MONEY THING IS ONE OF THE MANY MEDIA OUTREACHES OF FAITH LIFE NOW. KENNETH: We’re the body
of Christ. We’re the body of the anointed One
and carriers of that burden-removing
power. Glory to God. (Singing) I know my God
has made the way for me. I know my God has
made the way for me. ANNOUNCER: Become God-inside
minded, aware of who He is in you, and you in Him. Today
Kenneth Copeland shows you how to operate in the
God-kind of faith that overcomes all fear. Next, on the
Believer’s Voice of Victory. KENNETH: “In Christ,”
“in Him,” “in Whom.” Now, look at I John
4:4. “You are of God–” say, “I am of God.”
AUDIENCE: I am of God. KENNETH: “You are of God, little
children, and have overcome them.” (Audience “Amens”) You
have overcome them. “Because greater is he that is in you,
than he that is in the world.” (Audience “Amens”) So what–what
are we working on here? “Oh, Father in heaven–” That’s
wonderful, but He’s right here. AUDIENCE: He’s right. KENNETH:
We’re changing our spiritual imagery and renewing our minds.
(Audience Agrees) Amen. And becoming God-inside minded.
AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: This one will make you a fearless
warrior. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: Heh-heh-heh-heh! Glory
to God. AUDIENCE: Glory to God. KENNETH: Amen. (Audience
“Amens”) Let’s go back over here, and let’s look in the 6th
chapter of I Corinthians. Verse 17, “He that is joined unto the
Lord is one spirit.” Verse 19, “What? know ye not that your
body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you
have of God, and you are not your own? For you are bought
with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your
spirit, which are God’s.” Hallelujah! (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) II Corinthians. Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh. And let’s
look in the 6th chapter also. Verse 14, “Be ye not unequally
yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness–” You’re the righteousness of God. I’m the
righteousness of God. We know Jesus. AUDIENCE: Amen. Yes.
KENNETH: We’re becoming God–we’re developing a
righteousness consciousness, and now we’re developing a
God-inside consciousness. “Be ye not unequally yoked together
with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness
with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light–” We are
born of the light. We’re children of the light, and we
put on the armor of light. “–what communion hath light
with darkness? And what concord hath Christ–” We’re the Body of
Christ. (Audience Agrees) We’re the body of the Anointed One and
carriers of that burden-removing power. (Audience Agrees) Glory
to God. Boy, you can get happy in this church tonight.
Hallelujah. “What concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part
hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath
the temple of God,” which is us, “with idols? for you are the
temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them,
I will walk in them; I’ll be their God, and they’ll be my
people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be separate–”
Praise to God. Look at that 18th verse. “Be a Father unto you,
and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord
Almighty.” (Audience Agrees) It hit me one day. I–I’d been
reading that and–you know, and I’d been preaching it. I’d been
preaching it for quite some time, several years. And–well,
no, thank You, Lord, for correcting me. I was preaching
it. I’d never thought of this before. I’ve had this happen a
lot of times. You have no idea what it’s like to preach and
listen to somebody else at the same time. (Laughter) And I’m
just going along preaching and–yeah, I see–you know,
yeah. And it’s just coming out of my mouth. Look at it. Ha. “I
will dwell in them. I will walk of my mouth. Look at it. Ha. “I
will dwell in them. I will walk in them.” Now, He is in our
spirit. Our spirit, of course, is the life of this body. So,
our body is the tabernacle that we live in. And I thought, “I
walk in them. I’ll live in them, I’ll dwell in them, I’ll walk in
them.” No wonder He said, “Lay hands on people.” AUDIENCE:
Mm-hmm. KENNETH: His legs are in my legs. He is in me. AUDIENCE:
Yes, He is. Yes. KENNETH: If you’ll let Him, He’ll consume
you. Hallelujah. And this phrase came out, “I am wall-to-wall
Holy Ghost. I woke up next to danger, He’s next to danger.”
AUDIENCE: That’s right. Amen. KENNETH: When I learn to release
Him and–(Praying in the Spirit) Ha-ha. The Lord instructed me to
lay my hands on you, for there is a place that needs to be
healed, and you’ve been talking about it, and He’s doing it
right now, in the name of Jesus. (Laughs) Oh, there’s a–there’s
a sweetness about your spirit that I just love hanging around
you. (Laughs) And just–you walk up next to danger, He’s next to
danger. But you have to learn to yield to Him. You walk up next
to somebody, “Wah-wah-wah-wah,” all mad at you and–hey, no, no,
no. Don’t be going for that. Let the lover loose in you.
AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: I’m talking about the Spirit of
love. AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: God Himself. Just relax, turn
inside. Listen to what He’s saying, not what they’re saying.
AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) Oh, yeah. AUDIENCE: Amen! KENNETH: Thank
You, Jesus. I was preaching in Wichita Falls, Texas. This is
the first meeting that we had out on our own. And so it was
1960–well, it was 1969. And meeting been–we were there 21
days, you know. And it took two weeks–really, seriously, it
took two weeks to get the unbelief out. And you start
preaching some things like this, some people get mad at you
because they never heard anything like that. Anyway, but
by the third week–and we were in the third week, and, man, the
place was full. An old abandoned drugstore building. They turned
the power on, and sparks shot up through the outlets in the floor
it was so nasty. Anyway… well, there was a woman–I was
preaching on the righteousness of God, this very thing. All of
a sudden, this woman began to speak with other tongues, loud.
And there was just a wet blanket kind of feeling. The anointing
just–shhew! I said, “Lady, hold that–hold that, please. Hold
that.” She’d just get louder, got louder. I said, “Please,
please, hold that.” She just got louder. I said, “Lady, shut up!”
She got louder and louder. Then she started interpreting.
“Ya-ya-ya-ya,” just went on, “ya-ya,” and didn’t say
anything. So I just stopped. And I said, “Well, the anointing has
been grieved, the Spirit of God’s been grieved, so at least
maybe I can teach you something about this.” And this guy said,
“Brother Copeland, she’s stone deaf. She couldn’t heard a word
you said.” All of a sudden, I’m the meany in the room. Come to
find out later this guy did this a lot to anybody like me that
came into town in order to destroy the meeting. I didn’t
know it at the time. Thank God I didn’t fly off the handle. I
learned that from my spiritual fathers, Oral Roberts and
Kenneth E. Hagin. Boy, you stay in love or you will lose it. I
just turned inward, stood there for a minute. I didn’t have a
clue what to do. Remember what I’m talking about? Turn the
lover loose, love Himself. AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: He said,
“Call her up there and lay your hands on her, and I’ll open her
ears.” AUDIENCE: Praise God. (Indistinct Responses) Oh, yeah.
KENNETH: I called her up there, laid my hands on her, and He
opened her ears. (Cheers & Applause) AUDIENCE: Hallelujah.
Glory! KENNETH: Suddenly, I’m a champion. (Laughter) No, Jesus–
AUDIENCE: Is the champion. KENNETH: –is the champion.
AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: The healer. But it sure did make
me look good. Ha-ha-ha-ha! Because I had to do something,
brother, because they were fixing to get a rope, you know.
(Laughter) My Jesus, they’re going to run me out of town and
shove me off–off the cliff! The love of God never fails.
(Audience Agrees) But you’re going to have to do it in faith,
and you’re going to have to be listening, and you have to be
obedient. AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: Remember what I told
you last week about Jasmine Mays? AUDIENCE: Yeah. Yes.
KENNETH: She could have got mad at that and liked to have. She
said it really irritated her when that woman stuck her foot
up–ha-ha–by her airline seat, you know, next to the window,
and knocked her–knocked her arm off of the–off of the footrest.
She said–well, she said, “Uh-oh, no, I can’t be doing
that.” So she–she looked at her, and she took a video of
herself. (Laughter) And she said she got so tickled, she started
laughing and laughing, said she finally figured out that the
woman–the woman in the rear finally figured out she was
laughing at her and so she tucked her feet back. That thing
went viral. That little tiny video that didn’t do anything or
say anything, she just went–just made this ugly face,
just a few seconds. 27 million views. 300,000 views. Finally,
people–a man came and bought it from her. Now she gets a royalty
every time somebody looks at it. (Indistinct Responses) Remember
what I told you last week what the Lord said to me one time? He
said, “Kenneth, I’ve got a million ways I could make you a
billionaire, and you can’t think of three.” And I couldn’t. All I
could think of is three times somebody give it to me. I
thought–(Laughter) We’re talking about a billionaire. You
know, if he would have said a millionaire, I could have a hit
record and maybe–you know. No, a billionaire. Said, “No, I
can’t do it.” That little old video has made Jasmine a
millionaire. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: And it hasn’t quit yet.
And I told you last week, and I’m telling you again this week.
Go Google Inside Edition and watch it and make Jasmine some
more money. She’s our partner. Would you please make her some
more money? (Laughter) Hey, this is what I’m talking about. Don’t
get in your little cocoon and say, “I don’t see how God’d give
any money to me.” Well, just shut up and grin and take every
video you can! (Laughter) Look–look to the greater One.
Say, “Greater is he–” (Audience Repeats) “–that is in me, than
he that is in the world.” Oh, that–you ought to be shouting.
No, you ought to be shouting right now, hallelujah!
(Applause) Thank You, Lord Jesus. Whoo! Glory, glory,
glory, glory, glory. Becoming God-inside minded. How much time
have I got, Tim? Huh? TIM: Eight minutes. KENNETH: Okay, just
perfect. Something called the great exchange. I didn’t come up
with that on my own. But I–I took it back there years and
years and years ago. And the Lord today–today, while I was
studying for this message tonight, and I just got so
excited and all this. And I just–I just heard it in my
spirit. The great exchange, you share it tonight. You ready?
(Audience Agrees) Remember, we identify with Adam as sin
consciousness. We identify with Jesus as a righteousness
conscious– AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: –consciousness. This
is substitution and identification. Jesus’
substitution, our identification. Very simple.
Jesus died to make us alive. He was made sin with our sins to
make us the righteousness of God with His righteousness. He
became weak to make us strong. He suffered our shame to give us
His glory. He went to hell to take us to heaven. He was
condemned to set us free. He was made sick with our sicknesses
that we be healed and live in divine health. He was cast out
of the presence of God in order to make us welcome there.
AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: Righteousness. Right standing
with God. Having a righteousness consciousness. Ephesians,
Chapter 2, quickly. One–Chapter consciousness. Ephesians,
Chapter 2, quickly. One–Chapter 1, the 19th verse, “What is the
exceeding greatness of his power towards us who believe,
according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought
in Christ, when he raised him from the dead–he wrought in
Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own
right hand in the heavenly places, far above–” where?
TOGETHER: Far above. KENNETH: “–all principality, and power,
and might, and dominion, every name that’s named, not only in
this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put
all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all
things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him
that filleth all in all.” Verse 6 of Chapter 2, “–and hath
raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly
places in Christ Jesus.” AUDIENCE: Amen! (Audience
Agrees) KENNETH: We have presence in heaven right now!
AUDIENCE: Hallelujah. KENNETH: We’re seated at the right hand
of Jesus. AUDIENCE: Amen! Whoo! KENNETH: He’s on the right hand
of God. AUDIENCE: Yes. Yes, yes. KENNETH: And we’re at His right
hand. AUDIENCE: Glory to God. KENNETH: Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) AUDIENCE: Yes, Lord. KENNETH: That
righteousness is a righteousness consciousness, comes to the
place where you stand before a holy righteous God with no fear.
AUDIENCE: That’s good. KENNETH: No sense of condemnation. Turn
to Romans 8. But a sense of belonging. I belong in this
place. This place was built for me. Hallelujah. Romans, Chapter
8, and we’re done. “There is therefore now–” Say, “Now.”
AUDIENCE: Now. KENNETH: Say “now.” AUDIENCE: Now. KENNETH:
Say, “Now.” AUDIENCE: Now. KENNETH: You can’t say, “now,” a
while ago. AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: Every time you
say, “now,” it’s now. (Audience Agrees) “–no condemnation to
them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.” Now, wait a minute. Wait. I want you to
hold it, hold it. Stop. Errrk! I learned, just a few months ago,
that that line, “who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Spirit,” that phrase was put on there down through over four
generations, four–excuse there down through over four
generations, four–excuse me–four generations of copies
of manuscripts. It was added on there by somebody. Now, look at
this. Look at this. Look, look, look, look, look. “Therefore
there is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.”
There is no condemnation. There is none. You have to believe the
lie of the devil to ever get under condemnation. AUDIENCE:
That’s right. KENNETH: Now, we judge ourselves that we be not
judged, not condemn ourselves. Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) Did you get anything out of this? (Agreement
& Applause) Come on, give the Lord a praise and thanksgiving.
Hallelujah! Glory to God. Jeremy will be right
back in just a moment. KENNETH: I commit
this to you. I write a partner letter every
month. I pray for you every day. I put scriptures
there on the bottom of that partner letter, and I put those
on there specifically for your benefit so that you can go back
and–and read those and make them a part of your prayer life.
ANNOUNCER: Kenneth Copeland’s commitment to his partners has
led to over 350 individual letters being written since
1986. The U.S. office mails the letter to over 400,000 partners
and friends every month. These powerful messages from God’s
heart minister life to your spirit and strengthen you in
your daily walk of faith. FEMALE: I’m a partner for about
probably five years now, and I enjoy his product, especially
his monthly letters. I wait for them in the mail. I just love
those. They’re so very inspiring. FEMALE: And he always
hits it right on. Whatever I’m going through, that is the Word
for that month. And I keep that letter. KENNETH: But I will
write them to help them get their needs met, to help them
prosper, to help them grow in the Lord and grow in faith
and grow in prayer and go from religion to
reality. Praise God. JEREMY PEARSONS:
Today is offering day on the Believer’s Voice of
Victory broadcast. And I want to read this to you again
from the book of Galatians. Chapter 6, Verse 6 says, “Let
him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who
teaches. And do not be deceived; God is not mocked: whatever a
man sows, that he will also reap.” Now listen to Verse 8.
“For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap
corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit
reap everlasting life.” And you know, when you make a financial
investment into a ministry like this one, you hear the voice of
the Lord, and He’s got an assignment for you, an
assignment of faith, an assignment in prayer, or an
assignment in your finances, what you’re doing when you sow
into this place, you are sowing to the Spirit. There are a lot
of–there are a number of things you could put your money on. But
when the Holy Spirit talks to you and begins leading you about
making kingdom investments, seeking first the kingdom of
God, what you’re doing is making–you are sowing to the
Spirit. And the promise here is, when you sow to the Spirit, you
reap from the Spirit. I know many of you watching this
broadcast right now, you’re partners, and we want you to
know we thank God for you. We pray for you every single day.
We speak increase over your life, and we say, “Rise up,
advance, and may the goodness of the Lord be seen in your life.”
Now, you might be watching this, and you might not be a partner
with this ministry. Here’s what you do: Go before the Lord and
say, “Father, do You have some part for me to play in what
Kenneth and Gloria Copeland are doing?” If the Lord wants you to
play a part in these broadcasts, if He wants you to be a part of
these conferences that are going on all over the world, if the
Lord wants you to be a part of the preaching of the Word of
faith and the Gospel from the top of the world to the bottom
and all the way around, if He’s got an assignment for you in
that, He’ll let you know about it. But as soon as He does, you
step out, and you act on it and sow to the Spirit. And when you
sow to the Spirit, you reap from the Spirit. Amen? Father, we
receive the giving of the people today. We call them blessed, and
we do. We say, “Rise up, and be–be increased and advanced in
Jesus’ name. Amen.” Now, listen, if you missed any of the
broadcasts over these past two weeks, I encourage you, go to
kcm.org because you can watch them–watch them there for free,
or you can watch them on KCM’s Roku channel. Get caught up with
us. Feed on this Word because it’ll change your life. Go to
church this weekend. And then next week, join us right here
again on the Believer’s Voice of Victory broadcast. This is
Jeremy Pearsons reminding you of this: God loves you, and we love
you, and Jesus is Lord! ANNOUNCER: Come to a Kenneth
Copeland Ministries event. KENNETH: You’re calling things
that be not as though they were, and you begin to see it. Glory
to God. I’m richer than I ever knew I was. I’m richer beyond
my whole imagination. Because He can do exceeding
abundantly beyond all I can ask or think, and He
promised to do it according to the power that’s working
within me. ANNOUNCER: September 14-15 register to attend
the Built to Last Men’s Conference at Eagle Mountain
International Church in Newark, Texas, USA. September 20-22 the
Charlotte Victory Campaign in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
With special benefits for veterans and military personel.
November 8-10 join us at our Nation’s Capitol for the
Washington D.C. Victory Campaign at the Hylton Memorial Chapel
in Woodbridge, Virginia, USA. April 4-6 Kenneth Copeland
welcomes you to the 2019 Branson Victory Campaign at Faith Life
Church in Branson, Missouri, USA. For more information
go to kcm.org/events. ANNOUNCER: The Believer’s
Walk of Faith is paid for by Bill Winston Ministry’s
partners and viewers. BILL: This is a divine transfer.
This is God coming in. You and I are not coming
to take sides, we’re coming to take over. We’re coming
to not only take back the wealth, but also the influence,
so that people can see a new platform and want
to come to Christ. When you’ve got something, then put the Word
on it. They sent the Word to do it. The Word is designed to
dissolve cancer. See, whatever Jesus did when He was here, He
was the Word. The anointing is the burden removing, come
on, yoke destroying, that’s what it means. When it says
“yoke,” it means crushes the yoke. It means the yoke doesn’t
exist anymore. Satan can’t go back and put the yoke on you
because it doesn’t exist. So I don’t care what somebody got,
put the Word on it. Put the Word on it. Put earphones on their
ear there in the band, and pump that Word, keep that Word three
times a day. If you’re going to take meals three times a day,
take Gos-pel. Take some Gos-pel. Gos-pel. There is
nothing that can withstand it. BILL: The Church is now
about to enter into a series of breakthroughs, a series
of breakthroughs. When you’re talking about breaking through,
I’m reminded of breaking the sound barrier. If you know
anything about breaking the sound barrier, this took place
some years ago, a guy named Chuck Yeager who was a test
pilot for the military, Air Force. Chuck Yeager was a pilot
who flew the airplane, the experimental airplane that broke
through. The sound barrier is the speed of sound, and what
happens is you go faster than the speed of sound. Depending
on what the density is and so forth, it’s up around 650, 650
miles an hour, that kind of thing. And, what happened was,
the thought was, that if you do break the sound barrier, your
body would disintegrate if you do go that fast in this
atmosphere. And so, Chuck Yeager was determined to prove that
wrong and to go beyond the barrier. What happened is he got
in the airplane, and they have a film made of it and so forth.
But they showed what actually happened. When he began to
get at such a top speed, and he began to get
close to the speed of sound and to break that barrier,
the whole airplane began to violently shake, to the
point that some of the glass on his instrument panel
began to crack and fall off the panel. He pressed on,
and it was violently shaking. Now, as he broke through that
barrier, once he did, the moment he broke through, everything got
smooth. Total peace. Now, understand, this, if you hear it
on the ground, an airplane that’s going faster than the
speed of sound, it’ll sound like a bang, boom-boom, like that. If
you’ve got dishes that are sitting up on shelves and it’s
close enough, it’ll shake those things and some of them might
fall off the shelves and so forth, because that much
vibration is taking place in the atmosphere. Over in Haggai,
chapter 2, he talks about a whole lot of shaking going on,
and he said, “He’s going to shake everything, and the gold
and the silver belongs to God.” And I believe that if you’re
feeling a little shaken in your life, it’s because you’re about
to break a barrier that has perhaps been in your life for I
don’t know how long. But we’re going to use this teaching to
break through. I’m not talking about just break
through money. How about breakthroughs through
some healing? How about breakthroughs through some
marriages? How about breakthrough through some
anxiety and so forth? So we’re going to get rid of all those
things. We’re going to get you into a place of peace and a
place of power. So, I believe in my opinion, that’s what’s
happening, that this whole idea of the wealth transfer, or
another word for it is “divine transfer,” is something that God
is doing, that He’s bringing some things back in order as it
is in heaven, and this is a part of it. You and I are here
representing God, and God, Jesus, one of the reasons He
came was to transfer this wealth or this earth back into the
hands of its rightful ownership. Alright now, as we look at this,
the other thing I think is happening is God is using this
to help separate the Church from the world. Help separate the
Church from the world. You know, one of the things I teach is I
teach the fact that the Church is supposed to have revelation.
Not just information, but revelation. The information is
of the mind, revelation is of the heart. We’re supposed to be
able to live on another level, and that revelation takes us
to that other level. Now with this, revelation helps
to separate you from the world. When you really
see like God sees, then it’s amazing how you can
separate from what has been holding you or the
darkness that’s been perpetrated in our minds
concerning the things that are in this earth. When we use the
word “ignorance,” ignorance is just darkness. And darkness is
what’s in this earth that Satan is using to keep people
deceived. Over, if you put it on the board, Revelation chapter
12, I’ll give it to you again, “And the great dragon was cast
out, that old serpent called the devil Satan, which deceiveth”
how much of the world? The whole world. “He was cast out into the
earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” So notice how
much he’s deceiving, is the whole world. The whole world.
You see, knowledge is what God gave Adam to protect himself
with. Knowledge. It’s the first thing He gave him. “My people
are destroyed,” come on, “For lack of knowledge.” The church,
really, in many cases, because even though they’ve been born
again, have not seen themselves any different a lot of
times than people of the world. And this particular
teaching, I think, is going to help to separate
people and bring them into a place where they can
really, really begin to fulfill the assignment that
God has on their lives. Now, with that being said, let’s go
over to Ecclesiastes in chapter 2. He says here in verse 26,
“For God giveth to a man that is good in His sight wisdom and
knowledge and joy, but to the sinner, He giveth trevail to
gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good
before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.” So the
sinner has a ministry, and the ministry of the sinner is to
heap up the wealth. Right now, I don’t know the actual numbers,
but some claim that most of the wealth of this earth, say 90% of
it, is in control by about 5% of the people. About 90% of the
wealth controlled about 5% of the people. Now, you need to
know that you and the sinner have two different daddies.
Now let’s look at John chapter 8, please, and put it up on the
board, verse 44. Over in John chapter 8 and verse 44, he says,
“You are of your father the Devil, and the lust of your
father, you will do.” Not might, will do. Now, Jesus is talking
here, and if Jesus is talking, it’s truth. He’s saying, “You
are of your father the devil,” so obviously, Jesus’ father and
their father were two different people. Say Amen to this.
Now, I’m not talking about your natural dad, Mr. Jones, Mr.
Anderson, whoever it is. I’m talking about your spiritual
father, the one that the true father … The spirit world is
the true world. The spirit world is the most real world. That’s
the real world. Once you come down to the natural world, it’s
just a reproduction of what’s in the spirit. So as we look at
this, he’s saying, “You are of your father the devil, and the
lust of your father, you will do.” What does “lust” mean? Lust
means “pressures.” Lust means “pressures,” in general. So the
lust of your father, you will do. So the pressure that he puts
on you, you’ll do just that. And here, we see that people
who Satan has used to put up in positions to manage the wealth,
because he’s got to manage it for his kingdom just like God
needs to manage it for His kingdom. So satan selects the
ones that he wants. Let’s go to Luke’s Gospel quickly, in verse
chapter 4 and verse 5. “And the Devil taketh Him,” Jesus, “Up to
a high mountain, showed him all the kings of the world, in a
moment of time.” Next verse, “And the devil said to him, ‘All
this power will I give you in the glory of them, for that is
delivered unto me and to whosoever I giveth.'” So notice,
he’s the one giving out power. Now understand, once Jesus
died and rose again, the power changed hands. I said,
the power changed hands. The Bible says over in Ecclesiastes
chapter 4, verse 1 through 3, it said, “The power
was on the side of the enemy.” It wasn’t on
the side of God’s people. It was on the side of the
enemy. You never see in the Old Testament somebody casting
out a demon. The reason why you don’t see it is because they
didn’t have the power. But Jesus came and got the power back,
okay? Now, in this, he is saying that the lust of your father,
you will do. So satan controls the people who don’t
know they’re being controlled because they’re thinking
they think of this, but they’re really not thinking
of this. Satan is controlling their minds like a puppetmaster
will control a puppet. I don’t care how high a
businessperson or political person they are, Satan
is controlling. All you have to do is look in the book of
Daniel, and the Prince of Persia, the leader, the king,
was controlled by a demon spirit above him. You look at
Nebuchadnezzar being controlled by a devil spirit. You look at
Herod. Herod, he tried to kill Jesus, controlled by a demon
spirit. Look at all the people that took Jesus and put Him up
on a cross. By the way, those were the Jewish priests and
religious people. They put Him up there. Pilate wanted to let
Him go, but they didn’t want to let Him go because the enemy was
controlling them. The lust of your father, you will do. Not
might do, you will do. So what you and I have to do is stop
Satan’s attacks and stop him from running people’s lives, and
we bind him and cast him out. That’s a whole other
thing now. And now, what we’ve got to do is, the enemy
raises up people and puts them up there and they control
the wealth. Now all of a sudden, you’ve
got pockets of starvation all over everywhere. Why
don’t these people get it? Why don’t these people make some
laws? Why don’t these people … Because the enemy is controlling
the mountain tops. You and I are not coming to take sides. We’re
coming to take over. We’re coming to not only take back the
wealth, say amen, but also the influence so that people can see
a new platform and want to come to Christ. Let’s go to Psalm 82,
please. Let’s go and do a little bit more with that. Over in
Psalm 82. Now I’m only saying this because Jesus, over in the
book of James, he talked about it in James chapter 4, he says,
“Friendship with the world is an enemy of God.” Now, we’re not
talking about you can’t show love for the world and so forth,
but understanding the world’s ways, you are not supposed to
get on that bandwagon. Say amen to to that. Once you do and
start compromising your values, your morals, your holiness, your
so forth, what is happening is you end up … Not you, people
end up depending on the world to support them. Over in Jeremiah
chapter 17 verse 5, look what he says: “Cursed be the man that
trusteth in a man.” Got it? That man not only is an outside man,
that man is also us. In other words, you can’t trust your
degree more than you trust God. Come on. You can’t trust your
status in the company more than you trust God. The moment you
start trusting anything else and idolize it above God, you get
open to the curses. The curse will come in your life, and look
what it says, “And make it flesh his arm whose heart departs from
the Lord.” Notice what the enemy wants to do. He wants you to
trust more in that than you do in God. And when you trust more
in that than you do in God, for the amount that you trust in the
world, that’s the amount that you keep revelation from coming
into your heart. In other words, what more you trust in darkness,
the more of darkness you receive. So you cannot afford to
trust. True enough, thank God for your education. Thank God
for your status and promotion, thank God, but notice God did
it. I’m saying Abraham, when the king of Sodom tried to give
Abraham some … He said, “Now, Abraham,” the king of Sodom said
this. This is after Abraham had rescued the king. I don’t know
why the king was trying to make a deal with him after he had
rescued. He said, “Give me the people and take the goods for
yourself.” Notice what Satan said. Satan was working with the
king of Sodom, because he was out of his mind wicked. He said,
“Give me the people.” So notice what the devil wants. The first
thing he wants is the people. See He figured if he can get the
people, he can make them get the goods. So the enemy has always
wanted the people. He wants our children. He wants your kids.
Your kid’s making A’s, the devil really wants him. Your kid’s
[mumbling], he really wants him. He’s got a gift. The
devil really wants him. Why? Because he’s got to use him to
make money for his kingdom. Are y’all with me here? Notice I’m
taking this and using it to help you separate from the world so
you’ll know the difference between the world and the
kingdom. All right? Are you still with me here? Now, I’m not
coming down and talking down about anybody, because people
are not the problem. I’m letting you know the problem. The
problem is wicked spirits, alright? Let’s go to Psalm 82
and just see what that has to say. It said this, verse 1.
He said, “God standeth in the congregation of the mighty, and
he judgeth among the gods.” Next verse he’d said, “How long will
you judge unjustly except of persons of the wicked? Selah.”
Now he’s talking to his people. Look what he says. “Defend
the poor and fatherless. Do justice to the afflicted and
needy.” Now, why would he tell us that? Obviously he’d tell us
that because somebody’s not doing that. I said, somebody’s
not doing that. So here are the people with the money, with the
positions, with the lawmakers, with the whatever-have-you,
should be doing that. But it’s not happening. Look what it
said: “Deliver the poor and needy. Rid them out of the hand
of the wicked.” Why? Because the wicked are abusing them. They’ll
put up places where the poor got to borrow money, and when they
borrow, they borrow it at 700%. Come on now, help me! Instead of
taking the poor and giving them a training session that will
train them for jobs that they can get and not make just $8 an
hour but $48 an hour so that they can raise a family. Are you
following what I’m saying? I’m saying the lust of your father
you will do. You got to get this, because if you feel
sometimes you’re having problems with people, don’t look at them.
That’s not your problem. The lust of their father they will
do. The pressure comes on them and they say something to you or
do something to you, but you’ve got to remember that you serve a
mighty God. You serve a God that He said, “I’m sending you like
sheep among wolves,” and no matter what that wolf tries to
pull on you, if he sets a trap for you, he will fall into it
himself. Now this has got to be preached, folks. All right? So,
As we look at this, now we’re saying that the wealth is being
held in the wrong hands. It’s not where it should be. It
should be among God’s people. It hasn’t been there. Look at
Isaiah chapter 45, if you will. Isaiah chapter 45. We got some
building to do for this wealth, with this wealth, but the enemy
has used wicked spirits to control this wealth. Now, we’re
about to strip the wealth, but we’re going to take it from the
spirits. Look what he says here in verse 2 of Isaiah 45: “I
will go before you and make the crooked places,” what?
“Straight. I’m going to break in pieces the gates of” what?
“Brass. I will cut and sunder the bars of” what? “Iron. All
that is spiritual warfare.” Say amen now. Verse 3, “And I will
give you the treasures of” who? “Darkness, and hidden riches”
where? “In secret places, that thou mayest know that I the Lord
which call thee by thy name and the God of Israel.” In other
words, I know where every offshore account is. I know
where every numbered account is over in Sweden or wherever it
is. I know where everything is being hidden at. I know where
every pallet of gold is. I know where it is, and I’m going after
it. Say amen to this. This is a divine transfer. This is God
coming in. Now, the enemy on purpose has work to keep the
church in the wrong thinking, and keep the church broke. Keep
the church in a place where it’s had no influence. Go with me if
you will to proverbs 22:7. “The rich rule over the poor and
the borrower is servant or becomes a slave to the
lender,” are you with me? Now, the devil does not fear the
poor. He knows that Now, the devil does not fear the
poor. He knows that this scripture and he doesn’t
mind poor churches. He doesn’t mind it. Because
he knows he rule over them. Now I know we say,
“Well, the anointing brother.” Thats true, but the
Bible tells me “Money answers all things…” Now,
the only thing I’m saying here is that God said in
Deuteronomy 28:13, “we’re supposed to be the head and not
the tail. We’re supposed to be above only,” come on, “and not
beneath.” Now. What I’m teaching, I’m going to
teach it. Because the rich have accumulated the wealth,
and it’s been done through a demon-driven system.
Now it’s time to be stripped. BILL: Well, I trust that you
were blessed by that powerful teaching. From Genesis to
Revelation we see God’s desire to prosper his people. Today is
offering day on the broadcast, and I’d like to share a key
principle that will build your faith for increase. You are
under a covenant of increase with God. God says in Psalm
115:14, “The Lord shall increase you more and more.” In verse 12
he said, “We are on God’s mind.” What does that mean? Have you
ever called somebody and when you call them they say, “I was
just thinking about you.” Well guess what, right now, God’s
just thinking about you. Praise God! What is He thinking about?
He’s thinking about how he can bless you, how he can increase
you. Why? Because he promised it to Father Abraham. He said,
“Abraham, I’m going to bless you and your seed.” So just as
Abraham obeyed God and he got blessed the more he obeyed, the
more blessed he became … Just like at the Wedding of Cana in
John 2, when Jesus showed up at the wedding. The mother of Jesus
said, “Hey, they have no wine. They’ve run out of wine!” He
said, “What is that to me.” She said, “Whatever He says to you,
just do it.” What does His servants do? They did what He
said and wine increased. I’m saying that increase mainly
comes through obedience to God. Hear what The Bible says in
Isaiah 1:19. He says, “If you be willing and obedient, you shall
eat the good of the land.” Think about me. I came here with $200,
and with my family with me and no place to stay. Dear sister
opened her home to us. But notice what I’ve been, just
obedient all the way. Obedient all the way. When God tells me
to do something, I do it. Notice, increase has come. We’re
televising to over 200 nations of the world. We are running
this–. Why? Just obeying God. In Luke 6:38 it says, “Give and
it shall be given unto you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken
together, running over, men shall give unto your bosom.” So
what are we doing? We’ve been doing sowing and reaping. Sowing
and reaping. And we’ve been obeying God and look what God
has done in our lives. He’s going to do the same thing for
you. Whatever he says to you, just do it. That’s your
responsibility. So as you do this, I’m expecting increase to
come into your life. Let me pray for you right now. If you have
your offering in mind or have it in hand, let me pray over it
right now that the same God that blessed me is going to bless
you. Praise God! Father, we just praise you and thank you now for
all of our partners, all of those who are watching us by
television or media. We pray, Lord, that as they sow their
seed today, that you are the God of increase. That you will
increase them more and more, them and their children. Father,
we pray that maybe they might not have but a little. But you
said you could sow a little and receive a lot, that you will
measure it back to them, good measure, pressed-down, shaken
together, and running over. Father we pray that you meet all
their need, according to Your riches and glory by Christ
Jesus. Now we consider these things done and we give you
praise for it. In Jesus name, Amen. Praise God! Well, this is
all we have for this week. This is Bill Winston saying we
sure do love you. Join us next week again for
another exciting series of teachings. We love you and
keep walking by faith. BILL: This is a divine transfer.
This is God coming in. You and I are not coming to
take sides, we’re coming to take over. We’re coming
to not only take back the wealth, but also the influence,
so that people can see a new platform and want to come
to Christ. When you’ve got something, then put the Word on
it. They sent the Word to do it. The Word is designed to
dissolve cancer. See, whatever Jesus did when He was here, He
was the Word. The anointing is the burden removing, come on,
yoke destroying, that’s what it means. When it says
“yoke,” it means crushes the yoke. It means the yoke doesn’t
exist anymore. Satan can’t go back and put the yoke on you
because it doesn’t exist. So I don’t care what somebody got,
put the Word on it. Put the Word on it. Put earphones on their
ear there in the band, and pump that Word, keep that Word three
times a day. If you’re going to take meals three times a day,
take Gos-pel. Take some Gos-pel. Gos-pel. There is
nothing that can withstand it. ANNOUNCER: Enter the golden age

dog leashes that just let you go so far, and then they
pull the dog back? Well I want to talk to you about the
number one thing that’s pulling you back from
living your dreams. (Music) TERRI: Hey, I’m Terri Savelle
Foy, and you’re watching Live Your Dreams. I
pray that as you invest in yourself today, you’re
captivated and you’re catapulted to live your dreams. I heard a
story that Dr. Norman Vincent Peale told years ago about
these American sailors who were visiting a port in China. They
said when they got off the boat, they walked up and saw this
tattoo parlor. When they saw the parlor, they saw all these
different tattoos displayed in the window. Well, one of the
tattoos read, “Born to lose.” They were shocked. They thought,
“Do people seriously get that tattoo, ‘Born to lose?'” They
walked inside to ask the man if it was for real. They asked this
man and in broken English this Chinese man said, “Yes.” He
said, “Before tattooed on body, tattooed on mind.” What a
powerful statement. I mean, think about it, the power of
your thoughts. In fact, Proverbs 23:7 says, “Whatever a man
thinks in his heart, so does he become.” So what you think
about, you bring about. Well, today I want to talk to you
about the number one limitation to you achieving success, or
living your dreams, or reaching your goals. That is small
thinking, negative thinking. You know, nothing limits you more in
your life than your thoughts, than what’s going on right here?
In fact, God is moved or he is limited by our thinking. Did you
know that it’s that powerful that you can actually be
limiting God by having small thoughts? Well, how in the
world do you start removing limitations, changing mindset
that maybe you’ve had for 20, 30, 40 years of your life? How
do you change that? Well, I’m just going to share with you
what God taught me, and in one word, God just kept putting this
word on my heart, over and over I kept hearing this, and it was
the word, “Audacity.” Now, usually when we hear the word,
“Audacity,” we think of it kind of in a negative way, like
people will say, “Look at the audacity.” Or, they’ll say, “The
audacity of you to say something like that,” or whatever. Well,
do you know that God wants you to develop audacity? That word
actually means the nerve, the courage, the boldness, the
fearlessness, even the grit. Well, I want you to get that
kind of audacity in your life to believe bigger, to believe that
God has more for your life. I want people to even say to you,
“You seriously have the audacity to think that that can happen?”
And you say, “Yes. That’s exactly what I have.” In other
words, it’s things like this, instead of just believing God to
put gas in your car, have the audacity to pay the car off.
That’s audacity, isn’t it? Or, instead of just believing God
for a two dollar raise at the office, believe for a major
promotion in the company. That takes audacity, doesn’t it?
Or, you could say it like this. Instead of having, “Oh man, I’m
just believing to pay off one of my credit cards.” No, have the
audacity to be completely debt free. That’s some serious nerve,
isn’t it? Some courage? Well, that’s what God wants us to
have. He doesn’t want us to just exist in life to just barely
make it, to barely get by. He wants you to have the kind of
faith that believes what’s impossible with man is possible
with God. That’s the kind of faith He wants you to have. But
it doesn’t happen by accident. It happens strategically, and
with an intentional plan. I’m going to show you how to do that
because I’m just going to share what God has taught me, in very
practical terms, on how to build that kind of audacity. Well, I
was listening to Andrew Wommack, and he was talking about how, I
don’t know, for 20, maybe 30 years, he pastored small little
churches he said all over Texas. He said he never grew above 100
people. Then he said this, “Everything was a struggle,
everything. Bill collectors were calling. Collection
agencies were calling.” He said everything was a financial
struggle. Well, then he said this, that in 2001 he had an
encounter with the Lord that changed his life. Now, listen to
what the Lord shared with him. He said, “You have limited me by
your small thinking. You have limited God with your small
thinking.” Then he took him to Psalm 78 verse 41 and listen to
what it says. “They turned back and tempted God and limited the
Holy One of Israel.” Think about that. We have the ability to
limit God in what he wants to do in our lives by the way we
think. Well, he said that moment was one of the most
life-transforming moments of his entire life. He said the vast
majority of people never reach their full potential because of
small thinking. Well, you know, that’s why people watch a show
like Jerry Springer. I mean, you watch a show like that and you
think, “I’m not doing so bad after all. I’m actually doing
pretty good.” Well yeah, after watching that debacle, but God
has so much more for your life. He’s saying, “Come on. Take the
limitations off. I want to do more in your life.” Well, that’s
what God was trying to get across to Andrew Wommack, so he
said, after that encounter with the Lord, he said, “I brought my
staff together and I just said to them,” he said, “I’ve got to
repent to all of you.” He said, “I’ve never even shared my real
vision with you because I’ve been insecure,” he said, “You
know, I just was doubting what God could do in my life. I’ve
been afraid, I’ve limited God.” Then he said this. He said, “I
don’t know how long it’s going to take to change the image that
I have on the inside, but I’m going to start believing in my
vision.” He said within one week his whole life and ministry
began to shift and change in a new direction. He said his
finances began to change instantly. Everything around him
began to grow. Now, listen to some of these statistics. I
think this is amazing, and I’m only sharing this publicly
because he does. But he said in 2001, he had 25 thousand people
contacting his ministry for the whole year. Today, more than 30
thousand people per month. In 2001, he said the annual revenue
for the ministry was 2.5 million dollars. Today, more than 3
million per month. That’s some significant growth. He said, “In
2001, we had 30 employees working at the ministry. Today,
330 employees.” Then he said this. “Back then,” he said, “I
had about 700 people attending my Bible schools. Today, more
than 7 thousand people attending Bible schools all across the
globe.” Now, listen to this statement. He said, “I changed
my thinking and everything around me began to grow.”
Everything around him began to change. Well, you know, God’s
no respecter of persons. What he’s done for Andrew Wommack, he
can do for you. What he’s done in my life, he can do for you.
Well, my first step that I want to share with you today is you
have to have the audacity to think bigger. That’s how I got
started. You have to see yourself changing on the inside,
in your thought life, before it’s ever going to show up on
the outside. Of course, that’s easy to say, and I’m sure you’ve
heard this from 100 ministers. But how do you get started? How
do you really and truly take a message like that, make it
practical, and say, “I can do this.” Well, I’m glad you asked,
because I’m going to show you what the Lord showed me. We know
the Bible actually says, “Be transformed by the renewing of
your mind.” That’s how you’re transformed is by renewing your
mind. Well, how do you renew your mind? By the Word of God,
by hearing the Word of God. This is how I began. Back in 2002, I
just started with a simple dose every day. I got a CD player,
I invested in some new CDs, I wrote a Post-It note, put it on
my mirror, that said, “Push play.” Now, heres the thing. You
know the Bible says, “Faith comes by hearing.” So every time
you hear the Word of God, faith comes. That doesn’t even take
much effort. You just push play, and faith comes. Well, as I
began making this a part of my daily routine, not just on
Sunday, because for most of my life it was just a Sunday
morning thing. I’d go hear a preacher, and then go about
the rest of my life. But when I said, “You know what? I’ve got
to have some major changes in my life,” finally I even began to
think about my life instead of just being on autopilot year,
after year, after year, like a robot, repeating the same
actions from one year to the next with no change. Finally, I
said, “Something’s got to change.” Well, it wasn’t
everything around me that was going to change. It was me that
had to change. I started learning things. Like
psychologists say, if you do something consistently for 21
days, you can break an old habit and start a new one. So I said,
“Okay, I’m going to make myself listen to one message, every
day, for 21 days.” Well, the more I began to hear, the more I
wanted to hear, the more I began investing in myself. Then, I
would start ordering messages from other people. I got so
hungry for knowledge, for wisdom. See, the thing is, God
has so much more for your life, but you have to receive it.
That’s how I started receiving it was by starting this quest
of making myself hear faith-building messages. Well,
like I said, God has more for you, but it’s up to your ability
to take it in, to receive it. It makes me think about my Grandpa
Creech. Actually years ago, my Grandpa Creech was visiting
us from Shreveport, Louisiana, and he came to
Fort Worth. At that time in Grandpa’s life, he had this
little oxygen tank. that he had to carry with him.
He had these little tubes connected to the tank.
Grandpa’s sitting in the den. He’s breathing through his
little oxygen tank and we’re all laughing and telling stories and
having such a good time. Grandma and grandpa are in town. All of
a sudden, grandpa started gasping for air and he’s
breathing really hard. What was the problem? Was there not
enough oxygen in the room? Was there not enough air in the
room? No, there was plenty of oxygen. Everybody else was
breathing just fine. It was grandpa’s inability to receive
it. The oxygen was there. It was available, but it was his
inability to take in what was available. See, it’s the same
with God and with you and me. God has so much more for our
lives. Stuff we haven’t even fathomed yet. He wants you to
receive it. He wants you to take it all in but it’s up to you and
your ability to take in what’s being offered. That starts by
making yourself hear the Word of God consistently. Get on a quest
to develop this success habit of just push-play. In fact, do you
know, I didn’t have anybody come to my house and this was back
in 2002 and my life was falling apart. I had no dreams, no
goals. I never dreamed I’d be doing what I’m doing today. I
was just in a rut of just repeating everything year after
year. I just started this simple habit of push-play. I never knew
that this was one of the habits of the most successful people in
the world in all industries, not just preachers. I’m talking
about even the astronauts who went to the moon and back. They
found it helpful to listen to motivational teaching on their
way into space. The most successful people in the world
used their drive time to build their faith, to learn, to gain
wisdom, to grow. I thought, “Well guys, if other people can
do this, I can do this and so can you.” I want to challenge
you. I don’t believe you’re watching by accident or by
coincidence. I believe God is saying, “You know what? Let’s
kick it up a notch. Let’s start some new habits and new
disciplines because I want you to build audacity like never
before.” To believe in yourself, to believe for impossible dreams
like paying off that debt. Losing that weight. Seeing that
marriage restored. Launching that ministry. Starting your own
business. Being the number one realtor in your city. God wants
you to have that kind of audacity but it doesn’t happen
by accident. It happens with intentional effort. When we come
back, I want to share with you something I never knew for years
that every successful person seems to practice and achieve
results. I’ll be right back. ANNOUNCER: Everything God has
for you is available but it’s not automatic. Obstacles,
challenges and resistance will try to stop you from achieving
your dreams and receiving your breakthrough. In the exciting
teaching series Audacity, Terri shares from personal experience,

you need to reach your dreams and fulfill your destiny.

having audacity to believe bigger, to think bigger, to
dream bigger and to believe that God has more for your life.
The key is, you have to see it on the inside before it ever
shows up on the outside. I heard this story about this Australian
sailing team. This was years ago, like back in the 80’s. The
Australians had never won the America’s Cup. The coach, he had
heard about this technique called visualization. Now, a lot
of people practice this, successful people, athletes,
CEO’s, Olympians, they practice visualization. He said, “You
know, I’m going to practice this with my team.” They’ve never
beat the Americans. They’ve always come up short. He went
out and got a cassette tape and had a narration made of the
Australian team beating the American team. He had it
professionally narrated. Had all these sound effects and
enthusiasm. You would hear things like, “We’re going around
the last buoy. We’re gaining ground. We’re sliding right past
the Americans.” Like I said, he had these sound effects of the
wind, the waves. The crowd cheering and then they would
yell, “And the Australians have won the America’s Cup.” The
crowd roars and everything. This tape went on for about twenty
minutes. This is back in 1983. They would imagine themselves
beating the Americans. He said he made his team listen to this
tape every day, twice a day for three years. Now that’s intense.
Every day, twice a day for three solid years. They said, when
they finally went to race the Americans, it’s time for the
America’s Cup race, their attitude was so different than
it had ever been before. Their whole mindset was, “Not them
again? How many times do we have to beat these guys?” He said
their attitudes were so different. Of course, they
sailed right past them and won the America’s Cup. My point is,
they had to see it on the inside before it ever showed up on the
outside. That’s visualization. I’ve discovered, this success
trait seems to be practiced by ministers, Olympians, CEO’s,
professional athletes and it’s this. Have the audacity to
visualize your future. In fact, Oral Roberts used to preach
messages on this. Every successful person practices
visualization. I never knew this. Now, I did know that God
has given us two types of sight. He’s given us spiritual sight
and physical sight. Of course, physical sight is just what
everybody sees. But spiritual sight is when you see things on
the inside that nobody else can see. You’re seeing with the eye
of faith. In other words, that’s like seeing yourself, going
online to your personal checking account and paying off that
debt. I mean, really, close your eyes and imagine yourself
logging into your account paying off that entire debt. Or
actually, see yourself walking into a bookstore and seeing your
books on the shelf. You got to see that on the inside before it
ever shows up on the outside. See yourself carrying that
baby. Maybe you’ve had two miscarriages. They’ve told you,
you can’t be pregnant. You got to imagine yourself conceiving
that baby, carrying that baby and holding that baby. See
yourself happily married and that God can restore a broken
relationship. See yourself holding hands with your husband
or wife walking down the beach with the sand in your toes. I
don’t have to get all mushy, but see yourself having your own
ministry or your own business. Or maybe on the mission field.
Now doing this takes audacity doesn’t it? That’s exactly what
God wants you to have. He wants you to have the audacity to give
yourself permission to dream and to believe it can really happen.
I can’t help but think about my dad Jerry Savelle. How, he says
when he first felt called to preach, nobody’s asking him to
preach. He didn’t have an itinerary. He didn’t have a
website back in 1969. He said nobody’s asking him to preach,
but he had the dream on the inside of him. The Lord actually
told him to go in his guest bedroom, in his little house in
Shreveport, Louisiana and just imagine himself preaching to
thousands of people. The Lord told him, “I want you to close
your eyes and pray for the people who, one day, will hear
you preach.” Dad said he felt ridiculous going in the guest
bedroom, closing his eyes, but he did it. He obeyed God. He
said, “When I stood in that room. I didn’t see a bed, a
dresser, a nightstand.” He said, “I saw the faces of thousands of
people.” My dad has preached to as many as fifty thousand people
in Nigeria. But it all started in that guest bedroom in
Shreveport, Louisiana in 1969 when nobody was asking him to
preach. That’s visualization. That’s seeing with the eye of
faith. You can’t just arrive at success without seeing something
beforehand. Even Jack Nicklaus, the legendary golfer, this is
what he said. He said, “I have never hit a shot, not even in
practice without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in
my head.” He visualizes himself hitting the ball before he ever
swings the club. I heard John Maxwell say, he said, “One night
I had dinner with a guy in Dallas who was an architect,”
and he said to him, “If you’re an architect, you can’t even
start building a project until you finished it.” They have to
create the whole thing to completion on paper before they
ever pick up a hammer and nail right? That’s what we need to
do. You need to imagine yourself succeeding in the area that
God’s speaking to you about. It’s kind of like this puzzle.
If someone handed you this puzzle and just said, “Here, put
it together.” You don’t even know what this is. You don’t
know if this is an airplane, if it’s the Eiffel Tower, an
elephant, a piano. You have no idea what this is until you see
the finished product. Once you see how it’s supposed to end,
then you can start taking steps to put it together. See, it’s
the same with our lives. When you start giving yourself
permission to dream, and you imagine yourself
living that dream, then you can start taking
steps towards it. I had never done anything like
this before, ever. Never even knew I was supposed
to really. Finally I had the audacity to dream, to visualize
myself living my dreams and I had no idea how it would ever
happen. Keep in mind the number one question that will stop you
from living your dreams is asking how. If you sit around
all day long saying, “How can I do this, how could I ever pay
that off, how could I become the number one realtor, how could I
lose that weight, how could I ever see this marriage
restored?” Then you’re going to talk yourself
out of the will of God for your life. For me I
couldn’t just sit around visualizing all day long, I
had to start taking action. I had to gain wisdom in
the area to pursue those dreams. The Bible actually says study to
show yourself approved. I thought my years of studying
were over when I finished college and for 11 years I never
picked up another book. Finally after 11 years of being
miserable and I wish somebody had come along and
given me like a checklist of things to study, but
I had just had to start one day with one CD.
Just one day with one CD. Also I had to start making
myself read books. Now I was not a reader, at all. In fact, the
only books I ever read outside of mandatory college books was
the Dallas Cowboy cheerleader manual and a book about
gymnastics. Well I’ve never done this before but so many people
have been asking me what are the top books that you recommend to
kinda get started developing a successful mindset or developing
new habits in your life. I put that together with the package
this week, it’s my top ten books that I highly recommend. I’m
telling you they have drastically changed my life.
Like I said, I was never a reader, ever. When I began to
discover that 88% of the wealthiest people in the world
read 30 minutes or more every single day, I thought okay I’m
going to make myself start doing this. I couldn’t even start with
30 minutes, I had to start with 20 minutes. Well these are the
books that have helped me the most, especially in the areas of
beginning to develop discipline and good habits, how to manage
my time I was so stressed out, how to get control of my money,
Rodney and I were spending everything that we made, we had
to learn to spend less, save more. So anyway I
listed all these books. Well when you think about
how important this is, that you start giving
yourself permission to dream. Let me just remind you of
something in Jeremiah verse 1. God said to Jeremiah, he said,
“Jeremiah what do you see?” Jeremiah answered him, he said,
“I see a branch. I see an almond tree blossoming in late winter
symbolizing alertness and activity.” The next verse says
the Lord said to him, “You’ve seen well.” Then he said, “I’m
active and alert watching over my Word to perform it.” To
perform what? What Jeremiah saw. Then the Lord came back a second
time, he said, “Jeremiah what do you see?” What if Jeremiah
had said, “nothing”? If you see nothing in your future you
can expect nothing. What if God asked you today, “What do you
see in your future? What do you want me to do, tell me because
I’m watching over my Word to perform it but I need to
know what you see? Do you see yourself debt free?” You say,
“No.” “Okay then I can’t do it.” We’re limiting God by our
thinking. We’re the ones putting limitations on God. He’s saying
remove the limitations, let me know what you see. In fact,
Yonggi Cho, who he pastored the largest church in the world,
he wrote a whole book on the importance of visualization and
he said in the first few years of preaching he would literally
stand behind the podium and preach with his eyes closed
because he said, “In my spirit I saw hundreds of thousands of
people, I didn’t see three.” Well you gotta get to that place
in your life where God says, ‘What do you see?” You say,
“Lord I see myself debt free. Lord I see myself preaching the
gospel. I see myself writing books and helping change lives.
I see myself having my own girls’ home and safe houses to
rescue girls from human tracking.” You gotta see it on
the inside before it ever shows up on the outside. This week I’m
so excited about the package that we’ve put together. This
was a teaching I did called Audacity. This was based on
something the Lord put on my heart that I had to start
developing the audacity to believe in myself. You know you
can’t wait for other people to come along, encourage you,
motivate you. I hate to tell you but Joyce Meyer isn’t going to
show up your front door and say, “Come let’s do this.” I wish I
could show up and cheer you on but you have to learn to become
your own best cheerleader. I had to do that. The Lord showed
me how to do that, how to start believing in myself like never
before. Then I taught seven different keys that I’ve learned
in my life and I know it’s going to help you. One of them is on
audacity to step out of your comfort zone. I heard this
statement, it said, “Comfort and convenience run the lives of
unsuccessful people.” I was like, ouch, but I don’t like
being uncomfortable. I’ve discovered if you want to move
on with God, if you want to do what he’s put in your heart to
do, it’s going to require some discomfort. Now a lot of times
people miss out on what God has because they’ll say, “I just
don’t have peace about it.” You know what, I doubt Peter had
peace when Jesus said, “Come, walk on the water.” He had to
step out of his comfort zone and just go for it. I’m going
to teach you how to build your courage and confidence to step
out and do those things that used to scare you, you’re going
to say, “Come on, bring it on. I’ve got audacity like never
before.” Then we put my top ten books but then also I wanted to
add this to the package this week, this is a single message I
taught called Ask. Did you know there are certain things you
could be missing out on in your life simply because you haven’t
asked. You know the Bible says you have not because you ask
not? What could you be missing out on? Now you’re going to love
this message, I’m going teach you about things like discounts,
scholarships, loans reduced, hospital bills canceled. I’ve
got so many stories of people who’ve applied this teaching and
they have saved so much money simply because they asked. The
Bible says ask and you shall receive. I want you to get that
special package this week, Audacity, Ask, and my list of
top ten books to help you get started changing the way you’re
thinking. You got to change on the inside before it shows up on
the outside. I’m so glad you’re watching today, I can’t wait for
you to get this, listen to it and then share your stories with
me. Don’t forget, don’t look at the years you’ve lost,
look at the years you’ve got left and start living your
dreams. God’s speaking to you today, this isn’t for
everybody else but you. I believe God is
saying, “Come on let’s get some audacity.”
Thank you for watching. ANNOUNCER: Everything God has

THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME AGAIN TODAY. WE
ARE THRILLED THAT YOU ARE PART OF THIS
TELEVISION BROADCAST. AND PARTNERS, LET ME TELL YOU HOW
MUCH I APPRECIATE YOU. YOU ARE SUCH A BLESSING TO US. WE THANK
YOU FOR YOUR BELIEF IN THIS MINISTRY. WE THANK YOU FOR
CATCHING THE VISION OF THE MINISTRY, AND YOUR FINANCIAL
SUPPORT IS A GREAT BLESSING, A GREAT HELP TO US. AND BEING ABLE
TO REACH PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH A MESSAGE OF HOPE,
MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO BECOME
THE WINNER THAT GOD HAS CALLED THEM TO BE. THANK YOU AUDIENCE
FOR BEING WITH US TODAY. APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE.
YOU’RE SUCH A BLESSING TO US AS WELL. YOU HELPED PULL THE WORD
OUT OF ME, AND I APPRECIATE THAT VERY, VERY MUCH. TODAY WE’RE
GOING TO CONTINUE TALKING ABOUT THE PRAYER OF PETITION. WE’VE
BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR SEVERAL WEEKS NOW. AND IF YOU
HAVE YOUR BIBLES WITH YOU, I’D LIKE FOR YOU TO OPEN THEM TO
LUKE CHAPTER 18. I WANT TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF REVIEW TODAY
BEFORE WE GET INTO SOME NEW MATERIAL. AND ONCE AGAIN WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT THE PRAYER OF PETITION. BUT I WANT US TO DO A
LITTLE BIT OF REVIEW AND TAKE A LOOK AT PRAYER IN GENERAL. FROM
LUKE CHAPTER 18 AND VERSE 1. THIS IS JESUS SPEAKING. IT SAYS
HE SPOKE A PARABLE UNTO THEM TO THIS END THAT MEN OUGHT ALWAYS
TO PRAY AND NOT TO FAINT. MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY AND NOT TO
FAINT. NOT TO GIVE UP. HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE NOTICED SOMETIMES
AFTER YOU PRAY YOU TEND TO WANT TO GIVE UP? PARTICULARLY IF YOU
DON’T SEE RESULTS BEFORE DARK. AMEN? WELL IT’D BE WONDERFUL IF
ALL OUR PRAYERS MANIFESTED BEFORE DARK. IN FACT, IT’D BE
GREAT IF THEY MANIFESTED SOONER THAN THAT. AND EVEN THOUGH I’VE
HAD SOME PRAYERS MANIFEST ALMOST BEFORE I COULD GET THE AMEN OUT,
THAT’S NOT THE NORM. SO YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO STAND. THE APOSTLE
PAUL SAID, HAVING DONE ALL TO STAND, STAND. SO YOU HAVE TO
LEARN TO STAND. YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO BE DILIGENT, TO
PERSEVERE. JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T SEE ANYTHING HAPPEN IN THE
NATURAL, YOU KNOW IN THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES, DOESN’T MEAN
NOTHING’S HAPPENING. SOMETHING HAPPENED IN THE SPIRIT REALM THE
MOMENT YOU PRAYED, THE MOMENT YOU SAID AMEN. SO IT’S IMPORTANT
THAT WE LOOK AT PRAYER AS OUR PRIVILEGE OF COMMUNICATING WITH
THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. IT SHOULD NEVER BE VIEWED AS SOME
RELIGIOUS OBLIGATION. PRAYER IS A PRIVILEGE. SAY THAT WITH ME.
PRAYER IS A PRIVILEGE. THINK ABOUT IT. YOU GET TO SPEAK AND
TALK TO GOD, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. HE IS OFFERING YOU THE
OPPORTUNITY TO COMMUNICATE WITH HIM. IN ITS SIMPLEST FORM,
PRAYER IS NOT ONLY TALKING TO GOD, BUT IT’S LISTENING TO GOD
AS WELL. YOU KNOW IN PRAYER IT SHOULD BE A TWO-WAY STREET, NOT
YOU DOING ALL THE TALKING. YOU KNOW IT’S FOOLISH FOR SOMEONE
WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO TO ASK SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO DO
IT, AND YOU DO ALL THE TALKING. AMEN? WELL SOMEBODY SAID WELL
GOD DOESN’T TALK TO ME. NOW WAIT A MINUTE. DON’T ADD LYING TO
THIS SIN. BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS THAT A SHEEP KNOW HIS VOICE.
AMEN? ARE YOU ONE OF HIS SHEEP? SO YOU NEED TO CHANGE
YOUR ATTITUDE WHEN YOU GO INTO PRAYER. EXPECT HIM TO TALK. BE
IN A LISTENING MODE ALL THE TIME. SO ONCE AGAIN, PRAYER IN
ITS SIMPLEST FORM IS TALKING TO GOD AND AT THE SAME TIME
LISTENING TO GOD. HE’S YOUR FATHER. AND IT PLEASES HIM WHEN
YOU DESIRE TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM. THROUGH PRAYER WE CAN KNOW
HIS HEART. THROUGH PRAYER, WE CAN KNOW HIS MIND. IT GIVES US
THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR FROM HIM. PRAYERS SHOULD ACTUALLY
BECOME A LIFESTYLE TO THE BELIEVER. THAT’S WHAT JESUS IS
SAYING HERE. MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY. SO IN THE, JESUS’ ATTITUDE
IS THIS. IT’S NOT IF YOU PRAY, BUT IT’S WHEN YOU PRAY. AMEN? SO
HE EXPECTS YOU TO PRAY. YOU CAN ACTUALLY LIVE IN AN ATTITUDE OF
PRAYER WHERE YOU’RE LISTENING ALL THE TIME. THAT’S WAY I LIVE
MY LIFE. EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT BE ACTUALLY TALKING TO GOD ALL
THE TIME, BUT I’M LISTENING ALL THE TIME. EVEN WHEN I’M DRIVING
DOWN THE HIGHWAY. IN FACT, THAT’S THE REASON MY WIFE
PREFERS TO DRIVE MANY TIMES BECAUSE I’M NOT PAYING
ATTENTION. I NOTICED A HUSBAND NUDGE HIS WIFE THERE IN THE
AUDIENCE. MOST OF THE TIME I LET HER DO THE DRIVING BECAUSE SHE
KNOWS, YOU KNOW, I GET REAL QUIET A LOT OF TIMES. AND I’M
LISTENING. I’M ALWAYS LISTENING. I NEVER KNOW WHEN GOD MIGHT SAY
SOMETHING TO ME. SO I JUST STAY IN A LISTENING MODE ALL THE
TIME. SO, PRAYERS SHOULD BECOME A LIFESTYLE. YOU SHOULD LIVE IN
AN ATTITUDE OF PRAYER. JESUS SAID, ONCE AGAIN, MEN OUGHT
ALWAYS TO PRAY. AND THIS IS THE WAY HE LIVED HIS LIFE ON THE
EARTH. OFTEN YOU’LL FIND IN THE GOSPELS WHERE IT SAYS THAT JESUS
WITHDREW TO PRAY. SO NOTICE, EVEN JESUS THE SON OF GOD, FELT
IT NECESSARY TO COMMUNICATE WITH HIS FATHER ON A CONTINUAL BASIS.
PRAYER WAS IMPORTANT TO HIM. IN FACT IT’S HOW HE RECEIVED
INSTRUCTION FROM HIS FATHER. LISTEN TO WHAT JESUS SAID IN
JOHN 8:28. HE SAID, “I DO NOTHING OF MYSELF BUT AS THE
FATHER HAS TAUGHT ME.” SO THIS TELLS ME THAT JESUS EXPECTED THE
FATHER TO TALK TO HIM. HE EXPECTED THE FATHER TO SHOW HIM
WHAT TO DO. AND HE SAID I DON’T DO ANYTHING ON MY OWN. I WAIT
UNTIL I HEAR WHAT MY FATHER HAS TO SAY. THAT’S A GOOD WAY TO
LIVE. WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR WHAT YOUR FATHER HAS TO SAY. SO
PRAYERS SHOULD BE AS IMPORTANT TO US AS IT WAS TO JESUS. THE
APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US IN FIRST THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 5, VERSES
16 THROUGH 18, AND I’M READING A PORTION OF THAT FROM THE NEW
INTERNATIONAL VERSION. HE SAYS, “BE JOYFUL ALWAYS, PRAY
CONTINUALLY, FOR THIS IS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU IN CHRIST JESUS.
PRAY CONTINUALLY.” THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION OF
COLOSSIANS 4:3 MAKES THIS STATEMENT, “DEVOTE YOURSELVES TO
PRAYER. DEVOTE YOURSELVES TO PRAYER.” ONE OF THE FAMOUS
PREACHERS OF DAYS PAST, JOHN WESLEY, ONCE SAID, “IT SEEMS GOD
IS ONLY LIMITED BY OUR PRAYER LIFE. HE CAN DO NOTHING FOR
HUMANITY UNLESS SOMEONE ASKS HIM.” ISN’T THAT AMAZING? HE’S
ONLY LIMITED TO OUR PRAYER LIFE. HE DOES NOTHING FOR HUMANITY
UNLESS SOMEONE ASKS HIM. JAMES SAID IN JAMES CHAPTER 4, “YOU
HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU ASK NOT.” JOHN 15:16, JESUS SAID,
“WHATSOEVER YOU ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME, HE WILL GIVE IT
YOU.” WHAT A GREAT PROMISE. WHATEVER YOU ASK THE FATHER IN
MY NAME, HE WILL GIVE IT YOU. SO HE’S INVITING US TO ASK. AND THE
QUESTION ON MY PART IS, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE HIM UP ON
THIS? AMEN? HE’S ASKING US TO ASK. SO, WHY WOULDN’T WE ASK?
WHATEVER WE NEED IN PRAYER, WHATEVER WE NEED IN LIFE, HE
SAYS THAT PRAYER IS OUR WAY OF RECEIVING IT. NOW IN THE PRAYER
PETITION IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE ONLY WAY
THAT THIS PRAYER WORKS IS YOU HAVE TO KNOW THE WILL OF GOD
UPFRONT. THE PRAYER PETITION IS BASED ON THE KNOWN WILL OF GOD,
WHICH MEANS YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO SPEND SOME TIME IN THE WORD
OF GOD. BECAUSE THAT IS A REVELATION OF THE WILL OF GOD.
THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN POSSIBLY KNOW GOD’S WILL IS BECOME
FAMILIAR WITH HIS WORD. NOW THE APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US IN
EPHESIANS 6:18 THAT WE SHOULD PRAY ALWAYS WITH ALL MANNER OF
PRAYER. THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION SAYS, ALL KINDS OF
PRAYER. NOW THERE ARE THREE BASIC KINDS OF PRAYER THAT THE
NEW TESTAMENT TEACHES US. AND WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT
IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS. BUT FIRST, ALL OF YOU THAT ARE

BREAK WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYING THAT WE
SHOULD PRAY WITH ALL MANNER OF PRAYER. ANOTHER TRANSLATION
SAYS ALL KINDS OF PRAYER. THE NEW TESTAMENT REVEALS
TO US THAT THERE ARE THREE BASIC KINDS OF PRAYER.
NUMBER ONE THE PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE. THE
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING AND PRAISE IS WHERE YOU’RE NOT
ACTUALLY ASKING GOD FOR ANYTHING, BUT IT’S DEMONSTRATING
TO HIM THAT YOU HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE. SOMETIMES YOU JUST
NEED TO SPEND TIME WITH YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND DON’T ASK
HIM FOR ANYTHING. HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE CHILDREN IN THE
AUDIENCE HERE? DON’T YOU ENJOY SOMETIMES WHEN THEY JUST WANT TO
TALK TO YOU AND NOT ASK YOU FOR ANYTHING? YOU KNOW, MOMMA DO
THIS. MOMMA CAN YOU DO THIS? DADDY CAN YOU DO THIS? ISN’T IT
WONDERFUL SOMETIMES WHEN THEY SAY HEY, I JUST WANT TO CARRY
ON A CONVERSATION? DON’T WANT ANYTHING. JUST WANT TO TALK TO
YOU A LITTLE BIT. TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU. HEY THAT’S
NICE, ISN’T IT? DAD YOU’RE THE BEST DAD IN THE WORLD. I TELL
YOU THAT’LL GET YOU A TRIP TO THE MALL EVERY TIME. AMEN. SO
SOMETIMES JUST PRAISE WILL PRODUCE RESULTS TOO. YOU KNOW,
JUST GOING TO GOD AND SAYING, FATHER I JUST WANT TO SPEND SOME
TIME WITH YOU TODAY. NOT ASK YOU FOR ANYTHING. HE MIGHT SAY DON’T
YOU HAVE ANY NEEDS? WELL I HAVE NEEDS, BUT I DON’T WANT TO TALK
TO YOU ABOUT MY NEEDS. I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU WHAT I THINK
ABOUT YOU. YOU’RE AN AWESOME GOD. IT’S A PRIVILEGE TO SERVE
YOU. AND I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU’VE DONE. AND I’M
THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE FOR WHAT I BELIEVE YOU’RE ABOUT TO DO IN
MY LIFE. AMEN? THAT’S CALLED THE PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING AND
PRAISE. THE SECOND KIND OF PRAYER IS THE PRAYER OF
DEDICATION AND WORSHIP. THE PRAYER OF DEDICATION AND
WORSHIP. AND IN THIS KIND OF PRAYER, YOU’RE COMMITTING
YOURSELF TO WHATEVER GOD MAY WANT YOU TO DO, WHEREVER HE MAY
WANT YOU TO GO. IN FACT, IT’S THE ONLY KIND OF PRAYER, NOW
WE’VE TALKED ABOUT THIS IN SOME OF OUR PREVIOUS SESSIONS. BUT
IT’S THE ONLY KIND OF PRAYER WHERE IT IS CORRECT TO PRAY IF
IT BY THY WILL. NOW IN THE PRAYER PETITION, YOU CAN NEVER
MAKE THAT STATEMENT. BECAUSE THE PRAYER PETITION REQUIRES YOU TO
KNOW THE WILL OF GOD UP FRONT. THE PRAYER OF DEDICATION AND
WORSHIP, YOU CAN SAY IN THAT PRAYER. IT’S THE ONLY KIND OF
PRAYER WHERE IT IS APPROPRIATE TO SAY, IF IT BY THY WILL. WHY?
BECAUSE YOU’RE DEDICATING YOURSELF TO SOMETHING THAT YOU
MAY NOT KNOW AT THAT TIME WHETHER IT’S HIS WILL OR NOT.
YOU KNOW, FOR INSTANCE YOU MAY LIVE IN CALIFORNIA, AND YOU COME
TO HIM ONE DAY AND SAY FATHER, IF IT’S YOUR WILL TO MOVE TO
TEXAS, THEN I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW I’M WILLING TO GO WHEREVER
YOU WANT ME TO GO. I’M WILLING TO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT ME TO
DO. AMEN. I WILL MOVE TO TEXAS IF IT BE THY WILL. AMEN. NOW FOR
YOU TO PRAY THAT REGARDING FINANCIAL PROSPERITY, GOD IF IT
BE YOUR WILL TO PROSPER ME. THAT’S NOT CORRECT, BECAUSE YOU
CAN FIND OUT IN THE WORD OF GOD THAT IT IS HIS WILL TO PROSPER
YOU. SO TO ADD TO THAT PRAYER, FOR PROSPERITY OR WHEN YOU’RE
PETITIONING GOD FOR PROSPERITY. AND AT THE END OF THE PRAYER YOU
SAY, IF IT BE YOUR WILL TO BLESS ME FINANCIALLY, THANK YOU IN
ADVANCE. NOPE, HE’S GOING TO REVEAL IN HIS WORD THAT IT IS
HIS WILL FOR YOU TO PROSPER, 3RD JOHN VERSE 2, IF THAT WAS THE
ONLY VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT WOULD REVEAL TO YOU THAT IT IS
HIS WILL FOR YOU TO PROSPER. I WISH ABOVE ALL THINGS THAT THOU
MAYEST PROSPER AND BE IN HEALTH. OH, THERE’S ANOTHER ONE. SO IT
WOULD NOT BE CORRECT FOR ME TO PRAY FOR HEALING AND THEN ADD IF
IT BE YOUR WILL. BECAUSE HE SAYS IN 3RD JOHN VERSE 2 THAT YOU MAY
PROSPER AND BE IN HEALTH, EVEN AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS. SO
THERE’S THE WILL OF GOD. AMEN. SO ONCE AGAIN, THE ONLY TIME
THAT YOU CAN PRAY AND ADD THE STATEMENT IF IT BE THY WILL, IS
IN THE PRAYER OF DEDICATION AND WORSHIP. NOW THE THIRD CATEGORY
OF PRAYER IS CALLED THE PRAYER THAT CHANGES THINGS. NOW UNDER
THAT CATEGORY, THERE’S THE PRAYER OF BINDING AND LOOSENING.
THERE’S THE PRAYER OF AGREEMENT, AND THERE’S ALSO THE PRAYER OF
PETITION. AND THAT’S THE ONE WE WANT TO DEAL WITH IN PARTICULAR.
THE PRAYER OF PETITION. LET ME GIVE YOU SOME DEFINITIONS.
PETITION MEANS AN EARNEST REQUEST. IT ALSO MEANS A FORMAL
WRITTEN REQUEST. AND IT ALSO MEANS A SPECIFIC REQUEST. NOW
THE NOAH WEBSTER 1828 EDITION DICTIONARY GIVES THESE
DEFINITIONS FOR PETITION. NUMBER ONE, A REQUEST, A SUPPLICATION,
A PRAYER ADDRESSED BY A PERSON TO A SUPREME BEING FOR SOMETHING
NEEDED OR DESIRED. WELL WE KNOW THAT SUPREME BEING IS OUR
HEAVENLY FATHER. NUMBER TWO, THE NOAH WEBSTER DICTIONARY GIVES AS
A DEFINITION, A FORMAL REQUEST OR SUPPLICATION VERBAL OR
WRITTEN. AND THEN NUMBER THREE IT SAYS THAT A PETITION IS A
PAPER CONTAINING A SOLICITATION. AND THEN NUMBER FOUR IT SAYS TO
PETITION IS TO MAKE A REQUEST OR TO MAKE SUPPLICATION TO A
SUPERIOR FOR SOME FAVOR OR RIGHT. AMEN. NOW YOU’LL NOTICE A
COUPLE OF TIMES IN THESE DEFINITIONS IT MENTIONED
WRITTEN. AND PERSONALLY, THAT’S THE WAY I PRAY THE PRAYER
PETITION. I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT IF I WRITE IT OUT, IT SEEMS TO
ME TO CARRY MORE AUTHORITY. IT CARRIES MORE WEIGHT SO TO SPEAK.
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT GIVES ME SOMETHING TO HOLD ON TO THAT I
CAN LOOK AT LATER WHILE I’M WAITING FOR THE MANIFESTATION.
BECAUSE WHILE YOU’RE WAITING, YOU KNOW, THAT’S THAT PERIOD I
CALL BETWEEN AMEN AND THERE IT IS, OKAY. SO WHILE YOU’RE
WAITING FOR THE MANIFESTATION, YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO,
SATAN’S GOING TO COME AND SAY, YOU KNOW, WELL NOTHING’S
HAPPENING. APPARENTLY GOD DIDN’T HEAR YOUR PRAYER. YOU CAN ALWAYS
TAKE OUT THAT WRITTEN PETITION AND SAY SATAN, IT IS WRITTEN. I
PRAYED ON FEBRUARY THE 11TH, 1968, YOU KNOW, AND SOME OF MY
PRAYERS GO BACK THAT FAR, 1969 ACTUALLY. AND IN THIS LITTLE
BOOK ARE PRAYERS OF PETITION THAT I PRAYED FROM 1969 TO 1973.
AND I WROTE THEM ALL OUT. AND I CARRIED THIS AROUND WITH ME. AND
ANY TIME THE DEVIL WOULD SAY, WELL NOW JERRY YOU JUST DON’T
REALLY THINK THAT FINANCIAL NEED IS GOING TO BE MET. I JUST GO
BACK TO THE DATE THAT I PRAYED THAT. THE TIME WHERE MY WIFE AND
I SIGNED IT AS OUR POINT OF CONTACT TO RELEASE OUR FAITH AND
TO ADD OUR AGREEMENT IN THIS. AND I JUST SAY SATAN, LET ME
READ TO YOU WHAT I PRAYED JANUARY THE 19TH, 1971, SINCE
HE’S DEALING WITH THAT PARTICULAR PRAYER. YOU KNOW HE’S
TELLING ME IT’S NOT GOING TO COME TO PASS. HERE’S WHAT I
PRAYED SATAN. AND WHEN I SIGNED MY NAME TO IT, I BELIEVED I
RECEIVED. SO GO TELL THIS TRASH TO SOMEBODY ELSE. I BELIEVE I
RECEIVED. AMEN. I BELIEVE I RECEIVED. SO HAVING IT WRITTEN
OUT IS A WAY OF STAYING SINGLE MINDED. A WAY OF STAYING
FOCUSED, OKAY. AND FOR ME PERSONALLY, IT JUST, IT CARRIES
MORE AUTHORITY. I’VE ALSO NOTICED THAT WHILE I’M SEARCHING
THE SCRIPTURE, ENDEAVORING TO FIND WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY ABOUT
MY SPECIFIC NEED, NOW REMEMBER PETITION DEALS WITH SOMETHING
SPECIFIC. IT’S NEVER A GENERAL PRAYER LIKE LORD BLESS HIM. YOU
KNOW, LORD DO ALL YOU CAN, YOU KNOW. NO IT’S SPECIFIC. IT
PERTAINS TO SOMETHING VERY SPECIFIC IN YOUR LIFE, WHETHER
IT’S DIRECTION. WHETHER IT’S FINANCES. WHETHER IT’S HEALING.
WHETHER IT’S A FAMILY MEMBER FOR THEIR SALVATION. IT’S SOMETHING
VERY SPECIFIC. AND GOD IS GOING TO HAVE SCRIPTURE THAT DEALS
WITH THAT SITUATION SPECIFICALLY. SO THAT’S WHY
YOU’RE RESEARCHING. NOW I COMPARE IT TO A LAWYER BUILDING
A CASE BEFORE HE EVER GOES TO COURT. OKAY. HE IS GOING TO
PETITION THE COURT FOR SOMETHING. SO WHAT DOES HE DO?
HE GOES TO ALL OF HIS LAW BOOKS. THAT’S THE REASON HE HAS THAT
LIBRARY WITH ALL THOSE LAW BOOKS. IF HE’S NOT SURE WHAT THE
LAW SAYS ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR CASE, THEN HE GOES TO THOSE
BOOKS. OR HE HAS INTERNS OR PEOPLE THAT WORK WITH HIM. AND
HE SAYS GO FIND OUT WHAT THE LAW SAYS. HE SAYS DO SOME RESEARCH.
BRING IT BACK TO ME AND LET ME KNOW WHAT IT SAYS. AND THEN WHEN
HE SEES THAT, WHEN HE GOES BEFORE THE COURT, HE IS
PETITIONING THE COURT BASED ON IT IS WRITTEN. NOW YOUR HONOR HE
MIGHT SAY, BASED ON THE RULING THAT WAS PASSED IN 1963, JONES
VERSUS THE STATE, YOU KNOW, AND HE’LL REFER TO THE LAW BOOK THAT
THAT’S WRITTEN IN, THE SECTION, THE AMENDMENT OR WHATEVER. SO
WHAT DOES HE DO? HE’S GOING TO THE COURT BASING HIS PETITION ON
SOMETHING THAT IS WRITTEN. THAT HAS BEEN PASSED BY LAW. SO HE
GOES IN THERE WITH CONFIDENCE. HE GOES IN THERE WITH ASSURANCE.
HE GOES IN THERE KNOWING THE LAW. WELL I GO BEFORE THE
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNIVERSE. THE THRONE OF GOD. AND I KNOW
THE LAW, AMEN. I KNOW WHAT THE WORD SAYS. AND THE BIBLE SAYS IN
ISIAH THAT GOD’S WORD DOES NOT RETURN UNTO HIM VOID. AMEN. WELL
HOW DO YOU RETURN GOD’S WORD TO HIM? BY SPEAKING IT. SO MANY
TIMES I’LL HOLD UP MY BIBLE AND MY PETITION, AND I’LL SAY
FATHER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THIS IS WHAT YOUR WORD SAYS
ABOUT MY SITUATION. IT IS WRITTEN. YOUR WORD IS FINAL
AUTHORITY. AMEN. AND THEN I PRESENT MY PETITION BEFORE THE
LORD. AND WHEN I SAY AMEN AND I WALK AWAY, I KNOW ACCORDING TO
1ST JOHN CHAPTER 5 VERSES 14 AND 15, THIS IS THE CONFIDENCE WE
HAVE IN HIM THAT IF WE ASK ANYTHING ACCORDING TO HIS WILL,
WE KNOW HE HEARS US. AND IF WE KNOW HE HEARS US, WE KNOW WE
HAVE THE PETITIONS WE DESIRED OF HIM. WHAT A WAY TO PRAY. I WALK
AWAY WITH CONFIDENCE. I WALK AWAY WITH ASSURANCE. I WALK AWAY
KNOWING IT’S NOT IF IT COMES TO PASS, IT’S WHEN IT COMES TO
PASS. GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT. PRAISE GOD. AMEN. SO THAT’S WHY
I LOVE WRITING IT OUT. AND ONCE AGAIN, YOU DON’T HAVE TO. BUT
ONCE AGAIN ONE OF THE DEFINITIONS OF PETITION IS A
FORMAL REQUEST IN WRITTEN FORM. SO THAT’S WHY I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE
TO WRITE IT OUT. NOW, IN THE PRAYER PETITION, WHEN YOU HAVE
RESEARCHED THE SCRIPTURES AND YOU FOUND OUT WHAT THE WORD SAYS
ABOUT YOUR SPECIFIC NEED, AND YOU’VE WRITTEN IT OUT IN THE
FORM OF A PETITION, THEN THERE COMES THIS BOLDNESS AND THIS
CONFIDENCE THAT THE JUDGE OF ALL THE EARTH, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
WILL GRANT YOUR REQUEST. LET ME JUST READ ONE OF THESE IN HERE,
JUST PICK OUT ONE THAT I HAVEN’T, YOU KNOW, NECESSARILY
SELECTED IT IN ADVANCE. JUST TO PICK OUT ONE AND SHOW YOU WHAT
I’M TALKING ABOUT. HERE’S ONE THAT I WROTE OUT IN JANUARY,
JANUARY THE 1ST, 1972, 7:55 P.M. SEE I’M VERY SPECIFIC WITH THIS.
WHY DO YOU WRITE ALL OF THAT OUT? BECAUSE I WANT THE DEVIL TO
KNOW THAT’S WHEN I BELIEVE I RECEIVED. IF HE EVER COMES BACK
AND SAYS IT’S NOT GOING TO COME TO PASS, I SAY NO, YOU’RE
MISTAKEN. JANUARY 1ST, 1972 AT 7:55 P.M., THAT’S WHEN I WENT
BEFORE THE JUDGE OF ALL THE EARTH. AMEN. NOW THIS HAD TO DO
WITH, I PUT UP AT THE TOP OF MY PETITION A HEAVENLY GRANT FOR MY
JANUARY EXPENSES. AND I SAID, THIS DAY, JANUARY THE 1ST, 1972,
AT 7:55 P.M., I CONFESSED BEFORE GOD AND ALL THE ANGELS AND SATAN
AND ALL OF HIS DEMONS THAT I RECEIVE A HEAVENLY GRANT FROM MY
HEAVENLY FATHER FOR EXPENSES DURING THE MONTH OF JANUARY. THE
ABOVE GRANT IS IN THE AMOUNT OF, AND I PUT THE TOTAL AMOUNT. AND
YOU CAN SEE HERE I LISTED ALL OF THEM AND PUT THE TOTAL OF WHAT I
NEEDED DURING THE MONTH OF JANUARY. AND THEN I WROTE I
BELIEVE I RECEIVE IT NOW ACCORDING TO MARK 11:24 WHICH
STATES, WHAT THINGS SO EVER YOU DESIRE WHEN YOU PRAY, BELIEVE
YOU RECEIVE THEM, AND YOU SHALL HAVE THEM. THE ABOVE GRANT IS
FOR THE EXPENSES LISTED BELOW. AND I LISTED THEM OUT, WHAT THEY
WERE, HOW MUCH THEY WERE, AND THEN I WROTE PHILIPPIANS 4:19
SAYS, BUT MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEED ACCORDING TO HIS
RICHES AND GLORY BY CHRIST JESUS, I BELIEVE I RECEIVE IN
THE NAME OF JESUS, AND I DECLARE ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD MY
NEED IS MET NOW. I EXERCISE MY AUTHORITY AS A BELIEVER. I BIND
SATAN AND ALL OF HIS FORCES ACCORDING TO MATTHEW 18:18, AND
I LOOSE THE MINISTERING SPIRITS TO WORK IN MY BEHALF. JESUS SAID
IN MATTHEW 18:18 THAT IF ANY TWO OF YOU SHALL AGREE ON EARTH AS
TO ANYTHING THAT THEY SHALL ASK, IT SHALL BE DONE OF THEM OF MY
FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN. THEREFORE HEAVENLY FATHER, MY
WIFE CAROLYN AND I SET OURSELVES IN AGREEMENT BELIEVING WE
RECEIVE NOW. AND THERE’S OUR SIGNATURES RIGHT THERE. AND I
ADDED, THANK YOU FATHER. AMEN. NOW THAT WAS MY GRANT. THAT WAS
MY PETITION FOR A HEAVENLY GRANT FOR MY JANUARY EXPENSES WAY BACK
THERE. WHAT WAS THE DATE AGAIN? 1972. AMEN. AND IT CAME TO PASS
JUST THE WAY I WROTE IT. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT I REMEMBER, I
CAN’T REMEMBER A TIME WHEN GOD JUST MET THAT NEED. THERE WAS
ALWAYS ABOVE AND BEYOND. YOU KNOW, THERE WAS ALWAYS,
SOMETIMES IT MAY NOT BE BUT A COUPLE OF DOLLARS MORE, BUT HE’S
STILL THE GOD THAT DOES ABOVE ALL THAT I CAN ASK OR THINK.
AMEN. NOW, WHEN YOU’VE DONE THAT AND IT KEEPS WORKING FOR YOU,
WHY WOULD YOU EVER QUIT? AMEN. THAT’S THE REASON I LIKE TO
WRITE IT. I STILL WRITE THEM TO THIS DAY PRAISE GOD. AND THE
WONDERFUL THING IS, GOD HAS NEVER WAIVERED IN THIS. GOD HAS
BEEN FAITHFUL ALL THE WAY THROUGH. SO WHAT IS IT THAT YOU
NEED TODAY? WHAT IS IT THAT YOU NEED? YOU THAT ARE VIEWING BY
WAY OF TELEVISION? WHAT IS YOUR NEED TODAY? I ENCOURAGE YOU TO
GO TO THE WORD OF GOD AND FIND OUT EVERY SCRIPTURE YOU CAN
FIND. NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO WRITE EVERY SCRIPTURE IN THERE.
BUT THE MORE SCRIPTURES YOU FIND, THE MORE HIGHLY DEVELOPED
YOUR FAITH WILL BECOME. FAITH COMES BY HEARING, HEARING BY THE
WORD OF GOD. EVERY TIME YOU FIND ANOTHER SCRIPTURE, THERE’S AN
EXCITEMENT THAT GOES, WOW, PRAISE GOD. THERE’S ANOTHER ONE
THAT PROMISES ME, YOU KNOW, WHAT I’M BELIEVING FOR. AND THEN YOU
TAKE THE TIME TO WRITE IT OUT. WRITE IT OUT IN THE FORM OF A
PETITION. IF IT’S HUSBAND AND WIFE, COME TOGETHER AND PRAY
THAT PRAYER TOGETHER. SIGN YOUR NAME TO IT. DATE IT. AND AS FAR
AS YOU’RE CONCERNED, AT THAT MOMENT, THAT’S WHEN YOU BELIEVE
YOU RECEIVED. PRAISE GOD. ISN’T THAT EXCITING?
AMEN. WATCH THIS, AND I’LL BE BACK IN

forgiveness and healing, and we do, there is no better picture
of how faith works than the one who is called the father
of faith: Abraham. And we are given detail in
Romans 4:16 about how he and Sarah received one of the
greatest miracles in their life: the birth of a child, of Isaac. In Romans 4:16 it says,
“Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end
the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which
is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of
Abraham; who is the father of us all…” God truly is no respecter of
persons. He’s made all of his blessings
available to anybody, anywhere, on the basis of grace and faith. It doesn’t matter where you were
born, how much education or lack. It doesn’t matter your
complexion, your gender, your age, none of that makes any
difference. If you will believe Him and
receive from Him, He will do things for you that most of the
planet is not experiencing. It doesn’t make any difference
where you come from, who knows you, who doesn’t. Hallelujah. “It is of faith, that it might
be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the
seed; not to that only which is of the law,” I mean, most of us
can’t trace our lineage naturally to Abraham. We’re a mix. That’s why racism is so
ignorant. The very thing you think you
don’t like, you is one. (Laughter) (Laughs) You don’t know what you are. You’re so mixed up. (Laughs) It’s ignorance. But Galatians goes on to talk
about in Christ there is no Jew, there is no Gentile, there’s no
male, there’s no female. None of that matters when it
comes to receiving from God. None of it matters. Most of us could not trace
anything back to say we’re part of God’s covenant people through
the seed of Abraham, but by faith in Jesus, my family tree
is easy to keep up with now. I am born of God. Jesus is my big Brother. And if you don’t think that
carries some weight, you don’t know. Hallelujah. None of the rest of it makes any
difference. Verse seventeen, “(As it is
written,” talking about Abraham, “I have made you a father of
many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, Who
quickens the dead, and calls those things which be not as
though they were.” We’re going to take some time
and go look at this. “Who against hope,” Abraham,
“believed in hope,” now another way of saying that is there was
no reason for hope. Hope, the Bible word “hope”
doesn’t mean what we use in modern vernacular. A lot of people when they say,
“I hope so,” they don’t mean what this is talking about. They mean I wish… I want it to be… I wish it would be… That’s not what the word “hope”
means in the Bible. The word “hope” in the Bible
means “confident expectation.” You are expecting something. Well, he didn’t have any reason
to expect anything, but he expected anyway because of his
faith, “That he might become the father
of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall
your seed be. And being not weak in faith, he
considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an
hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: he
staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was
strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded
that, what,” God, “had promised, He,” God, “was able also to
perform.” Hallelujah. “And therefore it was imputed to
him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his
sake alone, that it was imputed to him; but for us also,”
everybody say: “Me too. (Congregation repeats) Me too.” “To whom it shall be imputed, if
we believe on Him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead,”
do you believe on Him? Go back to Genesis seventeen
while I’m talking about this. What does this have to do with
healing? Everything. Everything. Because we receive it by faith,
and obviously Abraham, father of faith. But also, what they were
believing for they specifically mention right here, was
miraculous changes in their bodies. Weren’t they? That’s what had to happen for
this to come to pass. Miraculous changes in Abraham
and Sarah’s physical body. And how they received it, works
the same way today. You receive it just like they
did, and He gives us them as an example for us to follow. Let’s go back to look at it and
see how it happened. In Genesis 17:1 it says, “When
Abram was ninety years old and nine,” somebody say:
“Ninety-nine.” Congregation: Ninety-nine. Almost a hundred. Abraham is ninety-nine. “The Lord appeared to Abram, and
said to him, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be thou
perfect.” Now this word “perfect” doesn’t
mean flawless; it means “wholehearted.” I won’t take time to get into
that, there are language issues here. Verse two, “And I will make My
covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” How many know God is the God of
increase? He always wants to increase us
in every good thing. “I will make My covenant between
Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and
God talked with him, saying, as for Me, behold, My covenant is
with you, and you will be a father of many nations. Neither shall your name any more
be called Abram,” we’re not pronouncing it correctly the way
the Hebrew is, but you know what I’m talking about, “but your
name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I
made you.” Oh, I’m getting stirred up. This is what Romans four is
talking about that God called him the father of many nations
before he was, before they had a child. Come on, can you see that? This is how God works. And God functions by faith. That’s why we say faith calls
things that be not, that are not yet in the natural, as though
they already were. He didn’t say soon I’m going to
make you the father of many nations. What did he say? He said, Abram, we’re changing
your name, buddy, today. You are no longer Abram. You are Abraham, which meant
father of many nations. And I’m changing your name
because I have already made you a father of many nations. Hallelujah. The reason I said I’m getting
excited, you are too, just talking about these things
touches something in our spirit. Because this is what we were
made from. Do you know what you are sitting
on? Faith. Do you know what the building is
sitting on? Faith. Do you know what the planet is
revolving on? Everything in existence was
created by the faith of God. He conceived it in Himself and
He spoke and said, “Light be,” hallelujah, and light is. I mean, your body, everything
that you see and feel was created by the force of faith. And the same force that created
us can easily fix our bodies. Affect our provision and
finances. Affect everything round about
us, because it’s the force that all this was created from the
start with. Now, there’s two big things that
Abraham did that allowed the power of God to change his body
and Sarah’s body to be changed. She had faith of her own. Hebrews eleven says she wasn’t
just riding on Abraham’s faith. Hebrews eleven says Sarah
herself had faith and received strength to conceive seed when
she was past age. She believed God. Though as we’ll see, neither one
of them started off believing God. So there’s hope for us. Two big things – this is
life-changing, friends. Two big things Abraham did that
allowed the power of God to make such miraculous changes in him
and Sarah. Number one is he called himself
what God called him. When it didn’t look like it,
when it didn’t feel like it, when there was no hope in the
natural that it could ever be that way he agreed with God and
called himself the father of many nations when they have no
child, looks like they’re way too old to ever have a child, he went ahead and agreed with
God and accepted his new name and told all his staff, told
Sarah, don’t call me Abram anymore. God has changed my name – he’s
not just changing his tag, he’s changing who he is. He’s changing what he is. And this is what we have to get
a hold of. People have thought names don’t
mean anything, words don’t mean anything, God will change a word
to change a thing. If He calls the bitter sweet, it
quits being bitter. If He calls the sick healed – if
He calls the poor rich. If He calls the bound free, oh
come on, come on, come on, come on. If you have any cars, any
vehicles that are not paid for, you need to change its name. It’s no longer a Chevy or a Ford
or a Toyota. Somebody says, “What kind of car
do you have?” A paid for. It’s a two thousand and one paid
for. Two thousand and ten paid for. What are we talking about? I call it, I call it – before
you see it, before you could ever know, even if you don’t see
any way it could be, “What style house is that?” It’s a paid for. I call it paid for. We have to rename some things. It’s not your weak eye. “My weak eye.” If you say so. “My bad knee.” If you call it that, you’re
locked into it. “My tennis elbow…. My bad back…” We must stop this and believe
what the Word says, what God has said about the power of faith
filled words, that life and death is in the power of the
tongue. Am I quoting Scriptures, saints? Then you have to speak to it. It’s not your diseased heart. Come on, name it. Name it. Rename it. If you want to change it, you
have to change the name. Two big things that Abraham did
that changed he and Sarah’s life. Two big things that allowed the
power of God to come in and do a miracle in their old bodies that
people would’ve thought could not happen. But it did. I said, but it did. Even if medical science says,
“There is no cure… There is no help for that… That can’t be fixed…” well, they can’t fix it. But God can. Now, don’t you misunderstand me,
we thank God for doctors and medicine, and we are fighting
the same thing; they’re doing it with natural means. But don’t think because there is
no natural help that there is no help, because all things are
possible with God, and with him or her that believes, but
believing involves calling. Calling. “I call that car paid for… I call that house paid for… I call it paid off…” Right? “The money is already at the
bank?” I didn’t say that, no. I believe I receive it. If I had already received it, I
wouldn’t have to believe I received it. “Oh you mean you have no more
symptoms in your body?” I didn’t say that. If you hurt, you hurt, that’s
real. But I said I call my body
healed. I call my kidneys sound. I call my lungs clear. Oh friend, if you say it in
faith, power is released. If you believe it, power is
released. I call my skin clear. See, people get locked into
stuff. “I’ve tried everything and
nothing works… I’m allergic to this…” If you say so. “I can’t eat this…” If you say so… “It makes me sick every time I
eat that…” If you say so. You could say something else. I said, you could say something
else. But notice when faith says this. It says it when it doesn’t look
like it. When it looks like there’s no
way it can happen. Abram is ninety-nine. Sarah is ninety. She couldn’t conceive when she
was twenty. Never had a child. Now she’s gone through the
change of life, Abram is ninety-nine. Can you imagine him and her
going to the doctor saying we’re just going to get a checkup
because we’re thinking about having a baby? (Laughs) And if they had listened to the
natural side of it, they would’ve come away
thinking there’s no way. You’re dreaming. But against hope, he believed in
expectation that what God said, He was well able – oh, somebody
say: “Well able. (Congregation repeats)
Well able. Well able.” Is God well able to fix your
body? Is He well able? Well able? What’s the first thing we’re
talking about? What did He do? Look at it again. He called. “Neither shall your name any
more be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham,” and this
hasn’t happened yet in the natural, but as far as God is
concerned, it’s done. Because when He says it – we
have to think like He thinks. We don’t have to see it for it
to be done. I don’t have to feel it for it
to be done. I don’t have to see the money. Verse six, “And I will make you
exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings
shall come out of you.” And the reason Abraham is in the
Book is because he just said, “Yes
Sir, I believe it.” He’s got no other reason to
believe it except the best reason that ever existed: God
said so. Skip down to Genesis 17:15 “God
said to Abraham, As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call
her name Sarai, but Sarah,” or Sah-rah, “shall her name be.” Why do you need to do this? Is God just doing something
whimsical? No. Is what happened in their bodies
tied to this? That’s what many have not
understood. They thought, He changed their
name, that’s interesting. But they don’t see it’s how He
got their bodies changed. “I will bless her, and give you
a son also of her: I will bless her, and she shall be a mother
of nations,” just like you a father of nations, she’ll be a
mother of nations. “Kings of people shall be of
her.” She’s ninety. Couldn’t conceive when she was
twenty. And how does God fix this? Changes her name. Now modern man doesn’t think
that way, do they? They don’t think that way at
all. But we are the people of God,
and we need to get our minds renewed so that we think like He
does. If we want to get His results,
we have to agree with Him. We have to work with Him. Not try to make Him do it the
way we think it ought to be done. People are begging God all over
the planet, good people, good saved people. “Please heal me. Please heal me. Please heal me.” That’s not what He said to do. That’s not how it works. Begging doesn’t work. Begging is not believing. The Lord told us to believe, and
if you are begging, you’re not believing. David said, “I’ve been young now
I’m old. I have never seen the righteous
forsaken nor his seed begging bread.” Thank God, God is such a God, He
doesn’t want us to beg. And since He is everything, we
don’t have to beg. We don’t need to beg. In fact, we’re missing it if we
do. “Please, please, please, please,
please, please, please,” it’s not what He said to do. It’s the opposite of what He
said to do. How many think millions of
Christians, that’s what they’re doing? We’ve done it too. But thank God for the light of
His Word. He, “Said in his heart,” so he
didn’t say it out loud, but how many know the Lord knows what
you say in your heart? “Shall a child be born to him
that is an hundred years old? And shall Sarah, that is ninety
years old, bear?” He thought that was impossible. Abraham, our great father of
faith, is having a moment. Is that right? He’s not doing good right here. He’s laughing at God, and God
wasn’t telling a joke. He’s laughing at him. Verse eighteen, “Abraham said to
God, O that Ishmael might live before You!” God, we’ve already got this. Sarah’s handmaid has had a child
now of mine, and we’re good to go. We have a kid. Let’s just use him. Verse nineteen, “God said,”
okay, we’ll do it your way? No. He’s not going to tell you that
either. He said no, no Abraham, “Sarah
your wife shall bear you a son,” for real, “indeed,” for sure,
“and you shall call his name Isaac,” already have him named. God is naming stuff right and
left. He renamed Abraham and renamed
Sarai, and named Isaac, and he wasn’t been conceived yet. This is how faith does. “I will establish My covenant
with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed
after him.” Now He’s talking about
generations to come out of a baby that hasn’t been conceived
yet. From a ninety-nine-year-old man
and a ninety-year-old woman that couldn’t conceive when she was
twenty. But God is not bothered by all
that. Announcer: Make plans to join s

the table is set we just need
you and your tres chic crew have you ever been a scenario
where you said stuff to your
kids that you didn’t really
mean but you were actually mean and you didn’t mean it have you
ever been a scenario where your
work and you said something
about you know another employee or maybe a supervisor
and you didn’t mean it that way
but it came out wrong I think
sometimes we have a lot of toxicity in our system because
a lot of bad things happen to
us throughout the day we’re not
mean people but obviously we don’t mean what we say but
we say things in a reactionary
moment that’s what Nicole’s
gonna talk about today here at Faith Church and I
promise you you’re going to
love it and here’s what I would
encourage you to do what encouraged you to listen to it
today and understand that Nicole
and I do not know everything
we’re not trying to say that we figured it out we certainly
haven’t she’s gonna share real
life stories of scenarios in
which she messed up with her mouth and then it kind of
crossed a problem but how she
resolved it if that’s you
today maybe you’re watching in the middle of the night
like who is this guy I promise
you you’re gonna be able to
have some handles some things you can use this next week from
this sermon today and of course
we also want you to know that
we have churches here in st. Louis and in West Palm
Beach Florida brick-and-mortar
locations and I want to fight
you out to maybe it’s been a really long time since you’ve
been a church you’re like man I
went to church they made me
feel bad they pointed the finger at me we’re gonna point
the finger at you but not this
way more like this way come
here God loves you and he’s not gonna leave you where t
he’s gonna bring people alongsio
help further this purpose that e so your life can be great so
enjoy today’s talk we don’t
want anything from you except
we would encourage you to come out to church this weekend
West Palm Beach all the
information during the talk
will come up so you don’t forget we have a lot of services
here in st. Louis and the best
way really is if you like me in
your multitasker and that phone’s not two feet from you
right now see that phone pick
it up just go to Faith Church
calm and check out pictures so here’s the call to talk to
you about the power and the
poison that could be in your
words though can we just can we just go with the plan and see
what he’s got ooh and that’s
what I love about being a Faith
Church you know we were in Australia and doing ministry in
conference and and worshiping
and it was great but I just
want to tell you friends there is no place like
home no place like home no
place like my faith church
family and they’re open to the Spirit of God and willing to
move and groove and do what
God wants to do ah I tell you
one place I haven’t met the Holy Ghost and that was Las
Vegas that is where our message
starts today I tell you I went
to Las Vegas with my mom and we just went first unlike some
pools and we had gotten a cheap
hotel deal and we we were gonna
do a spa treatment and see a show or two and I went my
thought my husband would love
all this architecture and these
creative ideas he’s got to come back here and he I said
husband you got to go to Vegas
with me he said I can’t go to
Vegas I’m a pastor and I said when did this happen and I
said baby you know what happens
in Vegas gets told by your wife
on the stage and so he went with me and we had a great
time and we bought tickets to
the show and I was so excited
because they still had front-row available last
minute at the discount place
and I thought I have always
wanted to sit front row at the Blue Man Group so when we get
to the Blue Man Group what
happens is as we’re coming in
they hand us these ponchos and at first I was like what are
these for and why doesn’t
everybody have one of these and
then I quickly figured out the reason that they gave me a
poncho on the front row it’s
because they were gonna spray
stuff on me sorry making you all bend over consider that one of
your squats for today you’re
like and done I did squats
today too I got out of bed well they gave us the front row
and we were ready to be
splashed I just gave you all
those ponchos and I want to let you know it’s because you’re
gonna get splashed if you would
like to vacate the front row
now my feelings will not be hurt second row you don’t get
a poncho you know why cuz you
got to pray and everybody on
the third row around y’all are just blessed you are in the
safety zone you obviously
prayed today God led where you
were gonna sit and you’ll say well what do we need these
ponchos for anyway well let’s go
to Matthew 15:11 Matthew 15:11
it says it’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a
man it’s what comes out of the
mouth that defiles a man the
title of today’s message is there are power in your words
I don’t even think that’s good
English let’s change the title
there is power in here words look at your neighbor
right now and say there’s power
and what I have to say now
listen to me and do those dishes when you get home in Jesus name
you see there’s power and what
comes out of our mouths and I
don’t think we realize all the time exactly what we’re
dealing with you know when I was
in Vegas I saw that they had all
these spa treatments and it inspired me because they
wanted a hundred and ninety
five dollars to take a bath in
some essential oil water with some rose petals I’d like for a
hundred ninety five dollars
I’ll buy my own essential oils
and I’ll go to 7-eleven I’ll get me a rose so and I’ve
always thought that Pastor
David should like put rose
petals on my bed and in my bath and maybe go before me and
they should just walk all over
the floor and I’ve got some
essential oils and this one’s called help how many people
want some hope in their life
smells delicious and this one
says stress away how many wish their stress would go away amen
whoo yes Jesus we want some
stress away who likes essential
oils come on up one person who likes essential oils for one
who stands up can come up here
for a second okay you stood up
first come on up here for a second this one is called joy
how many of you want more joy
in your life say Amen and you
don’t have to come all the way up here you can just stand
right there I just want you to
smell this for us come on over
here and smell this and just so she doesn’t have a
poncho she’s safe how’s it smell
it smells amazing it really does
anybody else want to smell this come on over hurry up
come on come on Oh both y’all
come off there you go come on
smell this is this some good stuff check this out oh she’s
bringing some more forgiveness
praise God I can keep it she
obviously thinks I need forgiveness what are you trying
to tell me Jesus but they all
want to wait this stuff smells
delicious doesn’t it I mean it smells good enough they’d
want to charge you a million
bucks to take a bath in this
in Vegas everybody say Sweetwater Sweetwater this is
some good Sweetwater but there’s
other kinds of water and
actually what are we talking about Sweetwater what are we
talking about well let’s go to
James three verse ten it’ll
tell us what we’re talking about right now it says out of
the same mouth proceeds blessing
and cursing missus brethren
these things should not be so mmm there’s a spring
send forth both sweet water
and bitter water well whenever
the Bible asks us a question friend it’s not because God
doesn’t know the answer God
knows the answer to everything
amen so who do you think he’s wanting to know the answer us ht
nice to know the answer so I mee
start googling it I’m like Kenng be salty and fresh the answer
was no can a hot water and cold
water come out of the same
spring because there’s hot springs and cold springs and
the answer was no can polluted
water and fresh water come out
of the same spring and the answer was no but the pool
just because it’s all in one
spot that’s not attractive is
it just because it’s all in one place it doesn’t mean
that it comes from the same
source so if we talked about
the sweet water let’s talk about the bitter water I know
it’s not happened at Faith
Church but I have heard tell
that at other churches Christians cuss they use dirty
language when somebody makes
them just that matter cuts
them off in traffic or a hammer hits their finger there
is some comes out of their
mouth if that has ever happened
to you just go ahead and fess up and say Amen yeah yeah
yeah and so there’s a couple
super sister Christians it’s
just like well that has never happened to me and
forty-two years ago I met Jesus
and I just want to let you know
I am squeaky clean like soap and none of that mess has come
out of my mouth and I want to
let you know anybody who said
yes to that who is a director in our church I don’t know if
they should be in our church
anymore especially not
leading and I don’t even know if I can follow a pastor
who’s been to Vegas well how
many of you know that might be
squeaky clean but nobody wants soap in their mouth I don’t
think God wants that soap in
there either and then there’s
stuff that’s straight poison you know my daughter I guess there’s
this expression that went around
and when something’s really
funny you’re just like oh my gosh I’m dead and I
heard her say that I said never
say that word again but I mean
I can’t judge her because I’ve said you’re
driving me crazy anybody ever
said that or I’m gonna kill you
do you really want them dead I mean maybe at the moment
but not really how many of you
know there is a difference
between this bitter water and that sweet water I’m not going
to ask anybody to come up and
smell or touch or get with
them ten feet of that but somehow we managed to say and
spray these different condits
of water over our life [Music]
I gave y’all a poncho and sometimes it’s sweet which
ain’t so bad but sometimes
it’s a bitter mess it’s so
bitter in there I can’t even suck it up it’s so dirty oh yeah
baby that’s some gross –mess
you know it’s an engaging
message when even the kids are saying oh no bitter water
and sweet water I just hope I
don’t get the too messed up
as we’re talking today I just have one question for you if
we’ve got these two guns in our
mouths at the same time and
they’re both spouting off at the same time how is it that
God is supposed to know whether
or not he can turn up the power
in our mouths you see how many of you want to pray
prayers of healing for the sick
and you see people healed say
Amen how many of you want to pray over the brokenhearted and
you see heart healed and then
being restored say Amen how
many people want to pray for the broken the poor and watch
finances come into them and
revitalize and say Amen
Sweetwater you can feel when the sweet words come out you can
feel it can’t you we can feel
it but somehow the bitter words
tend to speak out they tend to get out on us you see I
don’t know why bye and dog food
should be such a big deal but
in our house buying dog food is a thing because we’ve
got the healthy dog food we
want the dogs to eat in the
green and white bag but they won’t eat that by itself so I
have to buy this other food
that they do like except for in
the food they do like there’s these menial look and
chunks that they eat and they
root around for and they’ll
run around for the meaty chunks and they’ll eat the
healthy food while they’re doing
that but there’s these little
dark triangles in the bag with the meaty food and they
will not eat these little dark
chunks they’ll root around and
eat everything else and they’ll leave it there so long
I have to throw it out now
let’s think about it dogs dogs
eat their own vomit so how bad does this food have to taste
then they won’t even put it in
their mouth hmm should I put
this in my mouth can I put it in your mouth can I spray it
on y’all it’s funny how it can
be so clear and makes such
sense right now but as soon as we aggravated with somebody
as soon as they get on your
nerves as soon as they start
talking some full trash at work we say what is that full
idiot doing and if got turned
up the power in our mouth their
IQ would go to zero and they wouldn’t be able to
function anymore I wonder do
we really want God to turn up
the power in our mouth the problem is what is we deal in
the real would Jesus call it
what it is or would Jesus speak
life into it you see weird we’re speaking death and destrud
disharmony and disquiet and doud
when we’re dealing with real inf doing what Jesus would do we
polluted the very fountain of
power that God has given us
to architect our future shore up our present and even rectify
the past the enemy wants to
pollute our mouth because he
knows our mouth is our power God’s Word in our mouth is just
as powerful as God’s Word in
his mouth because it doesn’t
matter who speak it it’s God’s Word come on somebody
get on a real frame but we get
stuck in this in this bitter
water what is bitter water so let’s go to Exodus 15 Exodus
15 verses 22 through 26 Moses
is leading the Israelites
through what’s called the wilderness except for the
wilderness isn’t some trees and
forests and a creek the
wilderness is an arid dry desert where they are and so they’re
going through this dry desert
for three days and they got
nothing to drink for three days here we are in the line
at Starbucks aggravated when
they don’t get us our
cappuccino in 10 minutes right and they don’t get anything to
drink for three days well when
they finally get to a place it
says when they came to the oasis of Marah the water was too
bitter to drink so they named
the place Morrow which means
bitter I wonder if somebody had to name your conversation or
name the way you talked if they
would name it Marah sometimes I
don’t want the answer to that question God just be
real anybody ever had a
Monday alright so verse 24
the people complained turned against Moses what are we gonna
drink what are we gonna do the
bitter water is that bad well
until we really know what is bitter water what is the
problem with bitter water what
does bitter water do so I looked
at I looked it up and here’s a couple of quick references if
you go to Numbers 5:18 it’s
talking about a ritual that
they do and it says that the priests should have the woman
stand before the Lord and
hair have her hair loosed and
the place of the grain offering placed in her hands
which is the grain offering of
jealousy and that in the hand
of the priest is to be the water of bitterness which brings
a curse so if we’re ruined
bitterness out of our mouths
really we’re spewing a curse I wonder if anybody asked you on
the way into church today
when’s the last time you cursed
somebody we might say never however if we’ve been talking
about how entered they are how
rude they are how dumb they
are what a jerk they are or even worse nobody likes me I
can’t get any breaks in my
future I don’t know what I’m
gonna do I’m just not made for anything are we spilling bitter
water all over other people are
all over our own future and
then going back and refueling with more so in
Ashton was like four years old
because this one last year so
it actually is like four years old we were swimming in
swimming pool cuz we used to
have a pool in our backyard
and when we were swimming she thought it was fun to put the
water in her mouth and like
squirt it out between her teeth
oh sure now y’all put the Poncho’s on finally got tired
of I was like Ashton quits
Ashton quits Ashton quit does
it right in my face and it gets on my face I finally had
to remind her I said baby I
just want to let you know that
my booty is in the same water that’s in your mouth because I
just want us to realize how
nasty that water is it’s in our
mouth it brings a curse and then in Revelations 8:11 it
says the name of the star is
called wormwood and 1/3 of the
waters became wormwood and many men died from the waters
because they were bitter bitter
water brings a curse and bitter
water brings death so there’s these two girls and
they worked in Manhattan their
receptionist their friend Sara
got engaged the night before and they heard about it at work
or they couldn’t wait all day
to talk about it so they got on
the subway and they’re like oh my gosh I could not
believe Sara got engaged the
girl cannot cook to save her
life she is the sloppiest person that we know and she is so
hormonal months a month we
can’t stand her she can’t even
stand herself I don’t know how she is gonna live with any
man I give that marriage one
year tops cuz they’re gonna be
in divorce court by the time they get back from a
honeymoon talking talking
talking just spraying bitter
water all over all over Sara who they work with and they’re
supposedly friends with and as
they’re spraying all that
though the woman behind a month sitting behind him on the subway
said excuse me girls I am so
glad that I sat by you today you
see my son got engaged to Sara last night Oh ya’ll
saying whoa like you ain’t never
trash somebody on your way to
work alright and she said you know what we didn’t know
this about Sarah and we’re so
glad you brought some light to
it so i just want to let you know when I get home tonight
I’m gonna call my son and I’m
gonna let him know to break off
the engagement and they will not be getting married
all of a sudden the girls
backpedal and they’re like hey
wait wait wait wait Sarah is very loyal she will never cheat
on him she will stand by his
side she wants to have children
she wants to be a mother she’ll be an excellent mother
and they said she said no I
heard what she really thought
thank you for your insight and then all this the subway
stopped she said oh this is my
stop and she goes to get off
the subway she stops right before she gets off and she says
oh hey girls one more thing I
don’t have a son but I’m sure if
Sarah heard how you were talking about her it would
really hurt her feelings and
really spray some kill on your
relationship you see she was trying to help him out they
were spewing bitter water and
they didn’t even know how bad
the bitter water was how many people want some good water in
their life say Amen if you
want some sweet water in your
life say Amen there’s a little boy his name was Johnny
and Johnny always had trouble
going to bed so dad took
Johnny upstairs to bed finally got him into bed after
half an hour headed downstairs
five minutes later Johnny says
dad can I have a drink water dad says no Johnny I’m
telling you what I don’t want to
hear from you go to bed about
thirty seconds later Johnny says hey the head when you come
upstairs to spank me would you
bring me a glass of water how
many of you know he wanted water bad in proverbs 15 verse
four it says a gentle tongue is
a tree of life but perverseness
breaks the spirit a gentle tongue is a tree of life
what you do is you take a tree
a gentle tongue and you put it
in the bitter waters and it makes the bitter waters
sweet so what we do is we look
at all the places that we’ve
been squirt in the bitter water and now we start squirting
sweet water in that same place
sweet water gentle tongue God’s
words God’s promises we start by crying out to God we
start by repenting over what we
did say that we know now that
we shouldn’t have said if our mouth is the tool do we
want it used by the enemy or do
we want to used by God amen
because there is much power in your positive words as there are
on the negative things you’ve
been speaking you see the sweet
water you want to make sure it’s sweet enough don’t be
worried about adding a little
sweetness to it don’t be
worried that God can’t keep up with your prayer don’t be
worried that God can’t give
you more joy don’t be worried
that God can’t give you more hope don’t be worried that God
can’t take away all the stress
don’t be worried that God
can’t give you all the forgiveness even when you
think you can’t forgive just
go ahead and challenge God see
if God is not bigger than you think he is see if
God can’t do more than you
think he can see if God can’t
just take you at your word and best it and go one more over
that how many of you believe
that God is just bigger
better more able more willing King of Kings Lord of lords Lion
of the tribe of Judah healer
provider come on somebody God is
so good [Applause] pastor David said from the
time we were on our honeymoon
I can remember him saying it
it was back in 2007 and we were vacationing in and Destin
Florida I remember him saying
it he would say we’re gonna
spend years of our life on white sandy beaches you know it
was two thousand seven eight
nine ten eleven twelve thirteen
and twenty thirteen God calls us to open a campus in a
city we’d never been to in
Florida and he provides one year
free television time in two years of free television time
in three years of free
television time and he provides
a free office and then he provided a whole free church on
a whole free campus how many of
you know God takes these little
more spoons come on somebody these little morsels
in these little words you see
said you think you’re just
gonna be on a beach I’m gonna have you playing a whole
nother campus you just gave me
a morsel but I’m gonna turn it
into a mountain a blessing you think you’re just going on
vacation but I’m gonna turn it
into a lifestyle you think
it’s just all about you but I’m gonna bless so many other
people out of it I’m telling
you right now the sweet words
that come out of your mouth aren’t just about you but God
wants to use them to bless
tens of other people hundreds
of other people thousands of other people somebody in this
house act like they serve a God
of praise a God of goodness
about a favor of out of mercy about a Redemption about a
power about of life about of
healing a thought oh come on
somebody it’s your God good today he’s so good have you
ever said something and then
somebody said you said that and
you’re like I didn’t say that and then they rewind the
tape or it was at a birthday
party and they were recording
in your life Bobby doing I did say that we don’t monitor our
words that much or we said
something that was mean but we
didn’t mean it right so I think controlling our words can
really help control our future
maybe there’s been a limit at
you at work or maybe even this thing going on with you and
your significant other and if
you boiled it down it would be
that you said the wrong thing at the wrong time and
we’ve all done that so that’s
what today’s message was meant
to do was not to preach to you because we have not figured it
out because we probably said
things today that weren’t kind
or they were wrong and and when please forgive us of
that but I do want to tell you
that these are the kind of
messages that we preach each weekend if a church so if
you’re anywhere in there in
West Palm Beach Florida we’re
at the Palm Beach Lakes High School and and we also have
a world Palm Beach campus every
Tuesday night but all that can
be found by this little device I know that phones right
near you so go ahead and grab
it come on it’s right there
just reach for that phone and just google it just put in
faith church.com we want to
see you there and maybe last
question I have is maybe it’s been a really long time since
you’ve been to church is that
true well maybe you didn’t go
because it took too long or the music was bad or the
people were mean I want you to
Eve it one more try oh we need
to come see us this weekend at Faith Church and I promise
you Nicole and I and our entire
team we’re never gonna play the
finger to this way we’re gonna do it this way we haven’t

believe that you can apply in your life right away and make
a huge difference all right so

girls ooh la la a Parisian cake
party Thursday September 27th at 7:30 p.m. at the Palm
Beach Lakes High School no need
to find a sitter they’ll be
free childcare for children ages zero to four not
to mention incredible worship
photo booths conversations and
a cake smash featuring stunning French desserts that
will make you say ooh la la will
be hosting a cake taste and
decorating contest for all so bring your best cake and enter
to win the table is set we just
need you and your tres chic
crew [Music] you KENNETH: We’re the body
of Christ. We’re the body of the anointed One
and carriers of that burden-removing
power. Glory to God. (Singing) I know my God
has made the way for me. I know my God has
made the way for me. ANNOUNCER: Become God-inside
minded, aware of who He is in you, and you in Him. Today
Kenneth Copeland shows you how to operate in the
God-kind of faith that overcomes all fear. Next, on the
Believer’s Voice of Victory. KENNETH: “In Christ,”
“in Him,” “in Whom.” Now, look at I John
4:4. “You are of God–” say, “I am of God.”
AUDIENCE: I am of God. KENNETH: “You are of God, little
children, and have overcome them.” (Audience “Amens”) You
have overcome them. “Because greater is he that is in you,
than he that is in the world.” (Audience “Amens”) So what–what
are we working on here? “Oh, Father in heaven–” That’s
wonderful, but He’s right here. AUDIENCE: He’s right. KENNETH:
We’re changing our spiritual imagery and renewing our minds.
(Audience Agrees) Amen. And becoming God-inside minded.
AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: This one will make you a fearless
warrior. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: Heh-heh-heh-heh! Glory
to God. AUDIENCE: Glory to God. KENNETH: Amen. (Audience
“Amens”) Let’s go back over here, and let’s look in the 6th
chapter of I Corinthians. Verse 17, “He that is joined unto the
Lord is one spirit.” Verse 19, “What? know ye not that your
body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you
have of God, and you are not your own? For you are bought
with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your
spirit, which are God’s.” Hallelujah! (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) II Corinthians. Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh. And let’s
look in the 6th chapter also. Verse 14, “Be ye not unequally
yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness–” You’re the righteousness of God. I’m the
righteousness of God. We know Jesus. AUDIENCE: Amen. Yes.
KENNETH: We’re becoming God–we’re developing a
righteousness consciousness, and now we’re developing a
God-inside consciousness. “Be ye not unequally yoked together
with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness
with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light–” We are
born of the light. We’re children of the light, and we
put on the armor of light. “–what communion hath light
with darkness? And what concord hath Christ–” We’re the Body of
Christ. (Audience Agrees) We’re the body of the Anointed One and
carriers of that burden-removing power. (Audience Agrees) Glory
to God. Boy, you can get happy in this church tonight.
Hallelujah. “What concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part
hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath
the temple of God,” which is us, “with idols? for you are the
temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them,
I will walk in them; I’ll be their God, and they’ll be my
people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be separate–”
Praise to God. Look at that 18th verse. “Be a Father unto you,
and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord
Almighty.” (Audience Agrees) It hit me one day. I–I’d been
reading that and–you know, and I’d been preaching it. I’d been
preaching it for quite some time, several years. And–well,
no, thank You, Lord, for correcting me. I was preaching
it. I’d never thought of this before. I’ve had this happen a
lot of times. You have no idea what it’s like to preach and
listen to somebody else at the same time. (Laughter) And I’m
just going along preaching and–yeah, I see–you know,
yeah. And it’s just coming out of my mouth. Look at it. Ha. “I
will dwell in them. I will walk of my mouth. Look at it. Ha. “I
will dwell in them. I will walk in them.” Now, He is in our
spirit. Our spirit, of course, is the life of this body. So,
our body is the tabernacle that we live in. And I thought, “I
walk in them. I’ll live in them, I’ll dwell in them, I’ll walk in
them.” No wonder He said, “Lay hands on people.” AUDIENCE:
Mm-hmm. KENNETH: His legs are in my legs. He is in me. AUDIENCE:
Yes, He is. Yes. KENNETH: If you’ll let Him, He’ll consume
you. Hallelujah. And this phrase came out, “I am wall-to-wall
Holy Ghost. I woke up next to danger, He’s next to danger.”
AUDIENCE: That’s right. Amen. KENNETH: When I learn to release
Him and–(Praying in the Spirit) Ha-ha. The Lord instructed me to
lay my hands on you, for there is a place that needs to be
healed, and you’ve been talking about it, and He’s doing it
right now, in the name of Jesus. (Laughs) Oh, there’s a–there’s
a sweetness about your spirit that I just love hanging around
you. (Laughs) And just–you walk up next to danger, He’s next to
danger. But you have to learn to yield to Him. You walk up next
to somebody, “Wah-wah-wah-wah,” all mad at you and–hey, no, no,
no. Don’t be going for that. Let the lover loose in you.
AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: I’m talking about the Spirit of
love. AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: God Himself. Just relax, turn
inside. Listen to what He’s saying, not what they’re saying.
AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) Oh, yeah. AUDIENCE: Amen! KENNETH: Thank
You, Jesus. I was preaching in Wichita Falls, Texas. This is
the first meeting that we had out on our own. And so it was
1960–well, it was 1969. And meeting been–we were there 21
days, you know. And it took two weeks–really, seriously, it
took two weeks to get the unbelief out. And you start
preaching some things like this, some people get mad at you
because they never heard anything like that. Anyway, but
by the third week–and we were in the third week, and, man, the
place was full. An old abandoned drugstore building. They turned
the power on, and sparks shot up through the outlets in the floor
it was so nasty. Anyway… well, there was a woman–I was
preaching on the righteousness of God, this very thing. All of
a sudden, this woman began to speak with other tongues, loud.
And there was just a wet blanket kind of feeling. The anointing
just–shhew! I said, “Lady, hold that–hold that, please. Hold
that.” She’d just get louder, got louder. I said, “Please,
please, hold that.” She just got louder. I said, “Lady, shut up!”
She got louder and louder. Then she started interpreting.
“Ya-ya-ya-ya,” just went on, “ya-ya,” and didn’t say
anything. So I just stopped. And I said, “Well, the anointing has
been grieved, the Spirit of God’s been grieved, so at least
maybe I can teach you something about this.” And this guy said,
“Brother Copeland, she’s stone deaf. She couldn’t heard a word
you said.” All of a sudden, I’m the meany in the room. Come to
find out later this guy did this a lot to anybody like me that
came into town in order to destroy the meeting. I didn’t
know it at the time. Thank God I didn’t fly off the handle. I
learned that from my spiritual fathers, Oral Roberts and
Kenneth E. Hagin. Boy, you stay in love or you will lose it. I
just turned inward, stood there for a minute. I didn’t have a
clue what to do. Remember what I’m talking about? Turn the
lover loose, love Himself. AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: He said,
“Call her up there and lay your hands on her, and I’ll open her
ears.” AUDIENCE: Praise God. (Indistinct Responses) Oh, yeah.
KENNETH: I called her up there, laid my hands on her, and He
opened her ears. (Cheers & Applause) AUDIENCE: Hallelujah.
Glory! KENNETH: Suddenly, I’m a champion. (Laughter) No, Jesus–
AUDIENCE: Is the champion. KENNETH: –is the champion.
AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: The healer. But it sure did make
me look good. Ha-ha-ha-ha! Because I had to do something,
brother, because they were fixing to get a rope, you know.
(Laughter) My Jesus, they’re going to run me out of town and
shove me off–off the cliff! The love of God never fails.
(Audience Agrees) But you’re going to have to do it in faith,
and you’re going to have to be listening, and you have to be
obedient. AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: Remember what I told
you last week about Jasmine Mays? AUDIENCE: Yeah. Yes.
KENNETH: She could have got mad at that and liked to have. She
said it really irritated her when that woman stuck her foot
up–ha-ha–by her airline seat, you know, next to the window,
and knocked her–knocked her arm off of the–off of the footrest.
She said–well, she said, “Uh-oh, no, I can’t be doing
that.” So she–she looked at her, and she took a video of
herself. (Laughter) And she said she got so tickled, she started
laughing and laughing, said she finally figured out that the
woman–the woman in the rear finally figured out she was
laughing at her and so she tucked her feet back. That thing
went viral. That little tiny video that didn’t do anything or
say anything, she just went–just made this ugly face,
just a few seconds. 27 million views. 300,000 views. Finally,
people–a man came and bought it from her. Now she gets a royalty
every time somebody looks at it. (Indistinct Responses) Remember
what I told you last week what the Lord said to me one time? He
said, “Kenneth, I’ve got a million ways I could make you a
billionaire, and you can’t think of three.” And I couldn’t. All I
could think of is three times somebody give it to me. I
thought–(Laughter) We’re talking about a billionaire. You
know, if he would have said a millionaire, I could have a hit
record and maybe–you know. No, a billionaire. Said, “No, I
can’t do it.” That little old video has made Jasmine a
millionaire. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: And it hasn’t quit yet.
And I told you last week, and I’m telling you again this week.
Go Google Inside Edition and watch it and make Jasmine some
more money. She’s our partner. Would you please make her some
more money? (Laughter) Hey, this is what I’m talking about. Don’t
get in your little cocoon and say, “I don’t see how God’d give
any money to me.” Well, just shut up and grin and take every
video you can! (Laughter) Look–look to the greater One.
Say, “Greater is he–” (Audience Repeats) “–that is in me, than
he that is in the world.” Oh, that–you ought to be shouting.
No, you ought to be shouting right now, hallelujah!
(Applause) Thank You, Lord Jesus. Whoo! Glory, glory,
glory, glory, glory. Becoming God-inside minded. How much time
have I got, Tim? Huh? TIM: Eight minutes. KENNETH: Okay, just
perfect. Something called the great exchange. I didn’t come up
with that on my own. But I–I took it back there years and
years and years ago. And the Lord today–today, while I was
studying for this message tonight, and I just got so
excited and all this. And I just–I just heard it in my
spirit. The great exchange, you share it tonight. You ready?
(Audience Agrees) Remember, we identify with Adam as sin
consciousness. We identify with Jesus as a righteousness
conscious– AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: –consciousness. This
is substitution and identification. Jesus’
substitution, our identification. Very simple.
Jesus died to make us alive. He was made sin with our sins to
make us the righteousness of God with His righteousness. He
became weak to make us strong. He suffered our shame to give us
His glory. He went to hell to take us to heaven. He was
condemned to set us free. He was made sick with our sicknesses
that we be healed and live in divine health. He was cast out
of the presence of God in order to make us welcome there.
AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: Righteousness. Right standing
with God. Having a righteousness consciousness. Ephesians,
Chapter 2, quickly. One–Chapter consciousness. Ephesians,
Chapter 2, quickly. One–Chapter 1, the 19th verse, “What is the
exceeding greatness of his power towards us who believe,
according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought
in Christ, when he raised him from the dead–he wrought in
Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own
right hand in the heavenly places, far above–” where?
TOGETHER: Far above. KENNETH: “–all principality, and power,
and might, and dominion, every name that’s named, not only in
this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put
all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all
things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him
that filleth all in all.” Verse 6 of Chapter 2, “–and hath
raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly
places in Christ Jesus.” AUDIENCE: Amen! (Audience
Agrees) KENNETH: We have presence in heaven right now!
AUDIENCE: Hallelujah. KENNETH: We’re seated at the right hand
of Jesus. AUDIENCE: Amen! Whoo! KENNETH: He’s on the right hand
of God. AUDIENCE: Yes. Yes, yes. KENNETH: And we’re at His right
hand. AUDIENCE: Glory to God. KENNETH: Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) AUDIENCE: Yes, Lord. KENNETH: That
righteousness is a righteousness consciousness, comes to the
place where you stand before a holy righteous God with no fear.
AUDIENCE: That’s good. KENNETH: No sense of condemnation. Turn
to Romans 8. But a sense of belonging. I belong in this
place. This place was built for me. Hallelujah. Romans, Chapter
8, and we’re done. “There is therefore now–” Say, “Now.”
AUDIENCE: Now. KENNETH: Say “now.” AUDIENCE: Now. KENNETH:
Say, “Now.” AUDIENCE: Now. KENNETH: You can’t say, “now,” a
while ago. AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: Every time you
say, “now,” it’s now. (Audience Agrees) “–no condemnation to
them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.” Now, wait a minute. Wait. I want you to
hold it, hold it. Stop. Errrk! I learned, just a few months ago,
that that line, “who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Spirit,” that phrase was put on there down through over four
generations, four–excuse there down through over four
generations, four–excuse me–four generations of copies
of manuscripts. It was added on there by somebody. Now, look at
this. Look at this. Look, look, look, look, look. “Therefore
there is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.”
There is no condemnation. There is none. You have to believe the
lie of the devil to ever get under condemnation. AUDIENCE:
That’s right. KENNETH: Now, we judge ourselves that we be not
judged, not condemn ourselves. Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) Did you get anything out of this? (Agreement
& Applause) Come on, give the Lord a praise and thanksgiving.
Hallelujah! Glory to God. Jeremy will be right
back in just a moment. KENNETH: I commit
this to you. I write a partner letter every
month. I pray for you every day. I put scriptures
there on the bottom of that partner letter, and I put those
on there specifically for your benefit so that you can go back
and–and read those and make them a part of your prayer life.
ANNOUNCER: Kenneth Copeland’s commitment to his partners has
led to over 350 individual letters being written since
1986. The U.S. office mails the letter to over 400,000 partners
and friends every month. These powerful messages from God’s
heart minister life to your spirit and strengthen you in
your daily walk of faith. FEMALE: I’m a partner for about
probably five years now, and I enjoy his product, especially
his monthly letters. I wait for them in the mail. I just love
those. They’re so very inspiring. FEMALE: And he always
hits it right on. Whatever I’m going through, that is the Word
for that month. And I keep that letter. KENNETH: But I will
write them to help them get their needs met, to help them
prosper, to help them grow in the Lord and grow in faith
and grow in prayer and go from religion to
reality. Praise God. JEREMY PEARSONS:
Today is offering day on the Believer’s Voice of
Victory broadcast. And I want to read this to you again
from the book of Galatians. Chapter 6, Verse 6 says, “Let
him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who
teaches. And do not be deceived; God is not mocked: whatever a
man sows, that he will also reap.” Now listen to Verse 8.
“For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap
corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit
reap everlasting life.” And you know, when you make a financial
investment into a ministry like this one, you hear the voice of
the Lord, and He’s got an assignment for you, an
assignment of faith, an assignment in prayer, or an
assignment in your finances, what you’re doing when you sow
into this place, you are sowing to the Spirit. There are a lot
of–there are a number of things you could put your money on. But
when the Holy Spirit talks to you and begins leading you about
making kingdom investments, seeking first the kingdom of
God, what you’re doing is making–you are sowing to the
Spirit. And the promise here is, when you sow to the Spirit, you
reap from the Spirit. I know many of you watching this
broadcast right now, you’re partners, and we want you to
know we thank God for you. We pray for you every single day.
We speak increase over your life, and we say, “Rise up,
advance, and may the goodness of the Lord be seen in your life.”
Now, you might be watching this, and you might not be a partner
with this ministry. Here’s what you do: Go before the Lord and
say, “Father, do You have some part for me to play in what
Kenneth and Gloria Copeland are doing?” If the Lord wants you to
play a part in these broadcasts, if He wants you to be a part of
these conferences that are going on all over the world, if the
Lord wants you to be a part of the preaching of the Word of
faith and the Gospel from the top of the world to the bottom
and all the way around, if He’s got an assignment for you in
that, He’ll let you know about it. But as soon as He does, you
step out, and you act on it and sow to the Spirit. And when you
sow to the Spirit, you reap from the Spirit. Amen? Father, we
receive the giving of the people today. We call them blessed, and
we do. We say, “Rise up, and be–be increased and advanced in
Jesus’ name. Amen.” Now, listen, if you missed any of the
broadcasts over these past two weeks, I encourage you, go to
kcm.org because you can watch them–watch them there for free,
or you can watch them on KCM’s Roku channel. Get caught up with
us. Feed on this Word because it’ll change your life. Go to
church this weekend. And then next week, join us right here
again on the Believer’s Voice of Victory broadcast. This is
Jeremy Pearsons reminding you of this: God loves you, and we love
you, and Jesus is Lord! ANNOUNCER: Come to a Kenneth
Copeland Ministries event. KENNETH: You’re calling things
that be not as though they were, and you begin to see it. Glory
to God. I’m richer than I ever knew I was. I’m richer beyond
my whole imagination. Because He can do exceeding
abundantly beyond all I can ask or think, and He
promised to do it according to the power that’s working
within me. ANNOUNCER: September 14-15 register to attend

is made possible by the partners and friends of
Creflo Dollar Ministries. announcer: Coming up on
this edition of “Changing Your World,” Creflo and Taffi Dollar
talk more on the message of biblical equality. Creflo Dollar: So when I say
marriage is a partnership, how would you define
partnership? Taffi Dollar: Each
person has a part to play. I have a role, you have a role,
and I think traditionally we’ve tried to define those
roles based on the past. announcer: And, after the
message, stay tuned for an update on where you can join
Creflo and Taffi Dollar for a 2018 Change Experience. Creflo: Welcome to a special
edition of “Changing Your World.” Now I pray you’ve tuned in all
month as Taffi brought these life-changing messages on
biblical equality to you. Taffi: You know, when God
first spoke to me about this subject, I didn’t quite know how
well it will be received or if it would be received at all so
we just began to teach on it one revelation at a time. Creflo: Yeah, well, today I’m
looking forward to expounding and us spending time together
and just really hearing what God has put on your heart to do
this because it’s something that people really need to understand
because marriages are just not–they’re not working
with the–with the old program. And I pray that today you
will really get a hold of gender equality and this is not like
a women’s liberation type of movement. This is a God movement and I
think it’ll bless your life. So stay tuned and stay with us
and we’ll return right after this short break. announcer: The 2018 Change
Experience with Creflo and Taffi Dollar is coming to New York,
New York, September 28, and Los Angeles, California,
November 2. female: I don’t wanna miss
out on anything that they have so where they go, I go. announcer: 2018 Change
Experience, New York Marriott Marquis, in New York, New
York, September 28, and Crenshaw Christian Center in Los
Angeles, California, November 2. Seats are free. Register today. Creflo: Welcome back. Now, we’re gonna talk about
some things today that it goes against your religious
understanding, it goes against what you’ve heard all your life. It’s gonna challenge your
traditional way of thinking but I want you to–I want
you to remember this. The Bible says: “Your tradition
has made the Word of God of no effect.” So make sure that your
traditional understanding about gender roles and gender
equality–make sure that your traditional understanding
doesn’t cause you to allow the Word to have no
effect in your life. And so I’m gonna ask Taffi to
start and what we wanna do is really set a really good
foundation according to God’s Word. We wanna look at what it was
like when God created man and woman and then the Fall took
place and what happened after that. You know, when we were talking
about the grace of God, a lot of people didn’t understand that
there was a difference between the requirements of the old
covenant and the requirements of the new. And so what happened, under the
old covenant we had to obey in order to get God to bless us. But under the new covenant
it’s what Jesus has done and his perfect obedience that enables
us to be obedient and now the requirement is to believe what
he has already done and have more faith in what Jesus has
done for us instead of having faith in what we
can do for Jesus. So I want you to really zero
in on this foundation here and, Taffi, take it away and
let’s–I’m excited about this. Let’s do it. Taffi: Well, I think it’s
important first of all too that we understand that this teaching
today is not just about marriage because I think so many times
when we hear about equality just in general we automatically
think, you know, equality in the area of marriage but when we
really begin to understand what we’re gonna look at in Genesis
chapter 1, it’s really–even though Adam and Eve, you know,
God–they were married but we really wanna look at
relationships and how they progressed in it and what
happened as a result of their marriage and so forth and so on. So it is in the context in the
fact that they were married in chapter 1 when God created them
both in verse 26 when God made man after his image and after
his likeness and gave them both authority and gave
them both dominion. Creflo: So how would
this–how would this relate to a single person or just the
mindset of a individual? Taffi: Yeah, I think it’s
important for us to understand that equally and separately,
independently, Adam had dominion and Eve had dominion. It wasn’t where Adam had
dominion only and Eve had none. I think so many times we don’t
recognize that there was shared authority and
they were co-heirs. They were heirs together. They were able to be
partners in the things of God. Creflo: So God didn’t just
extend the authority to the man. When he gave that authority, he
gave it to the man and the woman but in our society we have a
tendency to talk about this as if he only extended
this authority to– Taffi: The man only. Creflo: The male man but
it excluded the female man. Taffi: Right, and so we
talked about, you know, the fact that the woman, her role was
not that of subordinate, of inferiority, that she was
beneath the man, but God gave them both dominion. He gave them both authority. And that word “help” in Genesis
chapter 2 is a strong rescue, one who was able to rescue Adam
from his aloneness, his being, you know, apart
from the animals. But she was that separate person
at the–as the Bible describes as the word “help” meaning equal
and corresponding to in the Hebrew. Creflo: Equal
and corresponding to. Taffi: She was fit for him,
she was equal to him, she was rescuing
him from himself. There was something about her
uniqueness that was obviously different from the animals and
all the other things that were there in the garden that enabled
him to be better, that rescued him. So it’s a strong rescue. Creflo: The Scripture that
you used, Genesis 1:26: “And God said, Let us make man in our
image,” the species of man in our image, “after our likeness:
let them,” both of ’em, male and female, “have
dominion,” or authority. “Let them have dominion,” and
authority, “over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air,
over the cattle, over–let them have authority over all the
earth,” male and female, and let them have authority, “over every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his
own image, in the image of God created he him,” man,
one–the species of man. And then he says, “Created he
him; male and female created he them.” And then he blessed–the
blessing was not just to the man but he “blessed them.” Taffi: Right, bless mankind. Creflo: Yeah,
mankind, the species of mankind. Taffi: The species of man,
which was male and female. Creflo: Yeah,
the male and female. And see, so our tradition when
we hear “man” we’re thinking about just the male specie but
when the Scriptures use it here, you can see very clearly it’s
talking about the specie of man including the male specie and
the female at the same time. Taffi: And that’s confirmed
in Genesis 5 where it talks about how God blessed them and
how when God blessed them both, that’s when God said
that it was very good. Creflo: Yeah, in verse 2, he
said, “Male and female created he them; and he blessed them,
and called their,” their, their, “name Adam, in the day
when they were created.” And I think if we’re really
gonna start to discern this properly, we have to pay
attention to what’s right in front of our eyes. But now, somehow, in the world’s
way of thinking and religious way of thinking, you know, if it
doesn’t say, “woman,” we don’t realize that he didn’t
start off with that. He started off with a man
specie, male and female. And there was no inequality in
how he blessed male and female. There was no inequality of how
he blessed or gave authority to male and female. And somehow we find ourselves
here today where that’s just not how people think. Taffi: That’s not how people
think and she had the same DNA, the same substance. She came out of Adam and
the–you know, there was no lesser DNA or lesser substance
when it came to the things that the woman had when
she came on the scene. So it’s very important for us to
recognize that they were equal in every sense and God saw
them that way as being partners together, mutually able to, you
know, release their authority. Creflo: So when I say
marriage is a partnership, how would you define partnership? Taffi: Each person
has a part to play. I have a role, you have a role,
and I think traditionally we’ve tried to define those
roles based on the past. And we’re at a point now, and
that’s one of the reasons why I wrote “Gender Roles” because
we have to recognize that, you know, the roles have changed
under the old covenant from what–where we are in
Christ in the new covenant. Creflo: Take us
through that, that there was– Taffi: We’re kind
of jumping ahead but– Creflo: Well, you know, it’s
like, you know, we’re talking about the very beginning of what
happened and we’re looking at how God related to
the specie of man. Walk us through his intent and
then something happened, the Fall took place,
and things changed. Taffi: It did. In fact, we were
talking about Genesis 2. Let’s go to Genesis 3 for just a
minute and we can use that as a reference. Chapter 3 of the book of
Genesis, verse 14 through verse 16. It says, as you know, the
serpent came into the Garden of Eden. “The Lord God said unto the
serpent, Because you have done this, you’re cursed above all
cattle, and above every beast of the field; and upon thy belly
shall thou go, and dust shall thou eat all the days of thy
life: and I will put enmity between you and the woman, and
between thy seed and her seed; and it shall bruise thy head,
and thou shall bruise his heel.” Then in verse 16, this is where
we wanna get to, “And unto the woman,” this was referring to
Eve, he says, “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your
conception; in sorrow thou shall bring forth children; and thy
desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” So again, as we just mentioned
and as I said earlier, this is the instance where God says,
“Okay, Adam, you will rule over Eve.” Up to that point,
God never said that. And if it was God’s intent for
the man to rule over the woman, he wouldn’t have said that,
you know, at this instance after they had eaten of the tree. So when they ate of the
tree, they transgressed, they disobeyed God,
and things changed. Their relationship, the
dynamics, the roles changed. No longer where she was able to,
you know, be on that same level of equality. At this point, there was a
rulership where the man was ruling over the woman and
he had authority over her. And as a result, that’s
why Jesus had to come. Creflo: Yeah, I think that
most religion, their beginning is verse 16. After the Fall, God’s intent
where equality was concerned and partnership was
concerned, changed. Now, when the Fall took place
and this change took place, I mean, just to fast-track it,
God had to figure out a way to change it back to his intent. And so Jesus came and Jesus now,
through his blood, said, “You know what
happened after the Fall? Through my blood I am now going
to reconcile things back towards the intent of where God came.” And, you know, we use Galatians:
“If you be in Christ, there’s no longer male or female, Jew or
Gentile,” for we’re all one in Christ Jesus. So you see the restoration of
equality again right there. So here’s the deal. Lots of religion don’t even
recognize that a change was needed. We preach Jesus and don’t
realize that Jesus came to restore the balance between man
and woman and so are you saying that most of the stuff we’ve had
to deal with, it came about as a result of not understanding the
change that took place after the Fall and the restoration of
that change after Jesus died? Taffi: I think by and large,
we have lived under the old covenant in our marriages and we
have lived particularly in a lot of societies. In America we probably have
more of a modernized approach to women being more independent
but in other parts of the world women don’t have as
many rights to education. They don’t have rights to make
decisions concerning, you know, empowering themselves and so,
as a result, they’ve had to live beneath God’s plan for their
life and really under, you know, this oppression and being
dominated over and a lot of different things which is very
hurtful which was never God’s intent. Creflo: Yeah, and physically
abused in some countries. Taffi: Absolutely. Creflo: Now, here’s the thing
that I hope people are seeing and I hope it was
just a big wake-up call. You know, until we understood
the grace of God, we didn’t even realize that the requirements in
the old covenant were different after Jesus died on the cross. For example, you know, the
requirements under the law was all about what
you do first, okay? Then God’ll do second. But after the cross, the
restoration went back to God’s intent. It is now what Jesus has done
first enabling you to be able to do second. So it, you know, church is just
filled with, “You need to do this in order for
God to do this. You need to do this in
order for God to do this.” And then dealing with this issue
of equality, it was, “You need to do this in order for God to
do this,” without understanding what Jesus has done. In other words, Jesus became the
game-changer in gender roles. He became the game-changer
where forgiveness is concerned. He became the game-changer
where love is concerned. We’re going around talking
about, you know, “I gotta love God with all my heart, my soul,
and mind,” and Jesus said, “No, I love you first, enabling
you to be able to love me. I’ll forgive you first, enabling
you to be able to walk in forgiveness.” So what you’re saying is, and
I need you to tell me and the audience as well, if we don’t
understand how to rightly divide the Word of truth, that we could
be stuck under an agreement that Jesus came to set us free from? Taffi: Absolutely. I think we see it every day that
we live based on misinformed interpretations of the
Scriptures that are not in line with context. We did a teaching this week on
the head and how important it is to understand what that means. That doesn’t mean that you’re in
charge, that just because you’re a man that you get to rule over
every woman and you come into a room and everybody’s supposed to
bow down to you because you’re the man. That’s not what it is, is every
man the head of every woman. Absolutely not. Creflo: It
used to be that way. Taffi: But Jesus
came to undo all of that. He, on point, on purpose, came
into male-dominated societies to show the value of women and to
restore women and to empower women and to show the men of
that day that women are a part of my plan, women
are on my team. I love women, I’m going to, you
know, make them a part of what I’m doing. And, you know, Jesus modeled
that servanthood and that love was demonstrated by how he
served us, by giving his life as a sacrifice and how we’re to
serve one another and that we’re equal to serve. Creflo: So me being the head
doesn’t make me the slave-driver or the guy in control. The head means I am nourishing
her with the love that Jesus nourished me with. Taffi: Race, class, or
gender should not bring special privileges nor should it
limit a person’s opportunities. announcer: Equality is
needed not just in society but specifically in all
of our relationships. Taffi: We have different
callings, different roles, but it is a beautiful thing when it
comes together into the overall plan and purpose of God. announcer: Learn to build up
relationships around you with “Equality in Christ.” This series includes an
exclusive interview with Creflo and Taffi Dollar discussing
their marriage and relationship views. “Equality in Christ” can be
yours for a love gift of $15 or more, and clear your mind of
doubt, failure, and worry with Creflo Dollar’s book,
“Overcoming Fear,” for a love gift of $20. Taffi: I am not limited
based on what God’s Word says. But the only limit that I have
is how I allow myself to see me. announcer: Log on or call the
number on your screen to reserve your copy of “Equality in
Christ” and “Overcoming Fear” today. Creflo: Well, what do
you say to people who will traditionally–here’s one
traditional thing I’m familiar with, being a help? You know, well, you’re
supposed to be the help. Taffi: Right, well, if we
look at the word “help” in 21 times in the Old Testament
God refers to himself as help. He says, “The Lord is our
help, he’s our shield.” And so that same word in Genesis
2 of ezer in the Hebrew is the same word that God uses in
referring to himself so we know God’s not talking about himself
as being inferior, being our shield, “The Lord is our ezer.” And so we have to change our
mindset on what that word means because so many times we go to
the Webster Dictionary or we go to the English meaning of words
in order to define something which was in a total different
context, a total different setting, a total different
culture, and we try to make it fit to our understanding of what
it means and we can’t do that. Creflo: You know, it’s so
important to understand what she just said. That’s just vital. The application of the Scripture
is gonna be determined based on the context in which
you found that Scripture. You just can’t lift it out of
its context and begin to say it means all these things when the
application of it is gonna be found in the context of it. You know, for me to say that
you are inferior would almost be like I’m saying God’s inferior. Taffi: Right, or to limit
me to domestic things because that’s what we think help is,
you know, in the kitchen or some type of subservient role. But Jesus came to really model
the fact that, you know, there’s value in service. He says the greatest of those
are the ones who are servants. He says, you know, ministers and
ones who are called to serve. And so I think if we can really
understand that there is power in servanthood and really get a
hold of the fact that, you know, there’s no lording over one
another but we’re all on the same team. And we’re partners in the body
of Christ and that we all have a part to play. But I think when we don’t
have the right mindset and we’re jockeying for positions
and titles and we have that patriarchy going on and we’re
trying to rule over each other, then it just opens the door for
a lot of contention and stress and strife. Creflo: Yeah, and when you do
that you forget about the most important part of partnership
and that’s communication. You know, you keep looking for
this rule that says you have to do this and you have to do that
and we forget about the Bible says submitting yourself one to
another out of respect for God. And that means we communicate
what are your strengths, what are my strengths. And we exchange strengths
for weaknesses, eliminate the weakness out of our partnership
and, in a sense, grow a very healthy cooperation because we
decided to communicate about things. I think one of the biggest areas
is in the area of the ministry. I know people who have this
mindset that, you know, a woman shouldn’t be respected as
the head of a ministry. Again, they take Scriptures out
of its context and begin to come up with all kinds of different
doctrines or they don’t understand how to
properly interpret a Scripture. And what happens is the woman
gets the short end of the stick, you know? I remember going to a church and
the woman couldn’t even come on the pulpit. She had to make the
announcements on the floor. And that a woman, you know, she
could preach as an evangelist but she couldn’t be a pastor. Tell us about some of the
things that you’ve learned and understood in Scripture where
women in ministry are concerned with this versus this whole
religious issue of let’s even keep the woman down
where ministry is concerned. Taffi: Yes, I think that
carries over from the Old Testament where men felt that,
even in Jesus’s day, that they were above women and that
they, you know, treated women a certain kind of way
as being inferior. And Jesus on purpose in many
instances went out of his way to model what relationship is
or should be with a woman. Creflo: The woman at the
well is one instance, right? Taffi: The woman at the well,
Mary and Martha when he went to their house, the–just many
different times where we saw where Jesus, you know, pursued
them, he empowered the woman at the well to go and preach, to
go and tell others about this encounter that she had
with God and with his Word. And so I think that it’s modeled
through how Jesus showed the esteem and the value
that he placed on women. And so Paul even
did the same thing. There were several women that
were part of the body of Christ and were part of the team, were
filled in the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. There were women
that were there. The Scripture talks
about Ananias and Sapphira. It talks about Priscilla, how
she expounded unto Apollos. So Paul’s ministry involved
women in ministry and they had the opportunity to be a part of
God’s plan, using their gifting. It wasn’t where gender caused
someone to be off limits because of what we read in
Galatians chapter 3. And so I do want to define
before we run out of time what biblical equality is
because we’ve said, you know, in previous teachings that it’s not
a same-sex ideology, it’s not some western thing, it’s not,
you know, Taffi Dollar on some whim, she and Creflo are just
on, you know, off on something that’s kind of flaky. But no, I want you to understand
that biblical equality means that we all stand
on equal ground. That we have equal access. I have every right as a woman,
as a female, in the gender that God has placed me in, to go to
God, to use my authority, to use my dominion, I
have access to him. I don’t have limited access
because of–I don’t have less of the Holy Spirit. I don’t have less of
the fruit of the Spirit. I don’t have–you
know, that’s silly. God is a Father and
he loves his children. He loves us all. And he’s not a respecter of
persons so I think we just have to get rid of the religious
mindset that says because I’m a woman or because I’m this
nationality, African American, that I’m, you know, inferior and
all these other things that we can easily adopt, based on what
society says or because I’m the man I get to make
all the decisions. But if we can really come
together and recognize that two, as the Scripture says,
are better than one. Creflo: Prestige Month is an

WELCOME TO THE GOSPEL TRUTH BROADCAST. WELCOME TO A VERY SPECIAL EDITION OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH. YOU ARE THREE PARTS; SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY. HEALING IS A PART OF THE ATONEMENT OF CHRIST. GOD WANTS YOU WELL. HOW CAN YOU DOUBT THAT YOU’LL GET IT IF YOU’VE ALREADY GOT IT? YOU’RE ALREADY BLESSED. EVERYTHING THAT JESUS CAME TO DO, THE POWER FOR IT IS RELEASED THROUGH THE GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS, THE NEARLY TO GOOD TO BE TRUE NEWS. WELCOME TO OUR FRIDAY’S BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH. I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU THAT I’VE GOT THIS BOOK ENTITLED GOD WANTS YOU WELL. THIS IS A POWERFUL TEACHING AND I’VE ALSO GOT IT IN CD AND DVD FORM. YOU CAN GET IT THAT WAY. WE’VE GOT A STUDY GUIDE THAT IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED SO THAT YOU CAN TEACH OTHER PEOPLE. THEN WE HAVE SIX VOLUMES OF HEALING TESTIMONIES. I’VE BEEN PLAYING A LOT OF THESE BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO NOT ONLY GET THIS IN WORD, BUT YOU NEED TO SEE IT ILLUSTRATED. YOU KNOW, JESUS NOT ONLY TAUGHT PEOPLE BUT HE DEMONSTRATED THE POWER OF GOD, AND THROUGH TELEVISION WE’RE SOMEWHAT LIMITED BECAUSE WE…YOU AREN’T HERE AND I CAN’T LAY HANDS ON YOU SPECIFICALLY BUT WE CAN PLAY THESE VIDEOS AND WE’VE BEEN SHARING A LOT OF THESE. THERE’S ABOUT 28 OR 29 TESTIMONIES OF MIRACULOUS HEALINGS AND WE’VE BEEN SHARING THOSE, AND ANYWAY, IF YOU GET THIS ENTIRE PACKAGE, I GUARANTEE YOU, AND MEDITATE ON THIS STUFF, IT’S JUST NEARLY GOING TO BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO STAY SICK. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT SO I’M EXCITED. I KNOW THAT WE’VE ALREADY SEEN A LOT OF GREAT HEALINGS. I’M IN MARK, CHAPTER 5 AND I’M USING THIS ILLUSTRATION OF THE WOMAN WHO HAD THE ISSUE OF BLOOD AND SHE CAME AND TOUCHED THE HEM OF JESUS’ GARMENT TO ILLUSTRATE THAT FAITH IS GOVERNED BY LAWS. JESUS DIDN’T SEE HER COMING. HE DIDN’T SIZE HER UP. HE DIDN’T EVALUATE WHETHER SHE WAS STRONG IN FAITH OR WEAK IN FAITH, WHETHER SHE WAS HOLY OR UNHOLY. THERE’S JUST LAWS THAT GOVERN HOW THE POWER OF GOD FLOWS AND THIS WOMAN PUT SOME OF THOSE LAWS INTO PRACTICE, AND BECAUSE OF IT THE POWER OF GOD JUST FLOWED OUT OF JESUS. NOW HE DISCERNED IT. HE RECOGNIZED. HE COULD FEEL VIRTUE GO OUT OF HIM, BUT HE DID NOT WAIT AND JUST SAY, ALL RIGHT, I’LL HEAL YOU. NO, THERE’S JUST LAWS. IT’S LIKE WHEN YOU GRAB A LIVE WIRE OF ELECTRICITY, IT’S NOT PERSONAL THAT YOU GET SHOCKED. IT’S JUST LAWS THAT GOVERN HOW THAT ELECTRICITY FLOWS. THERE ARE LAWS THAT GOVERN HOW THE POWER OF GOD FLOWS. SO ON OUR PROGRAM YESTERDAY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT ONE OF THEM IS THAT SAID, IN VERSE 27. THIS IS MARK 5:27, WHEN SHE HAD HEARD OF JESUS, SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND TOUCHED HIS GARMENT. SO ONE OF THE LAWS IS THAT YOU HAVE TO HEAR. FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD. I BELIEVE IT IS A DIVINE COINCIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE TUNED INTO THIS PROGRAM TODAY. SOME OF YOU MIGHT’VE JUST BEEN FLIPPING THE DIALS AND WONDERING, WHAT’S THIS GUY SAYING. BUT I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS DRAWN YOU HERE SO THAT YOU CAN HEAR THE TRUTH. FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD. THIS WOMAN HAD TO, FIRST OF ALL, HEAR BEFORE SHE COULD ACT ON IT. BUT THEN IT SAYS SHE HEARD OF JESUS AND SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND TOUCHED HIS GARMENT. ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING THIS IS LIKE IT SAYS OVER IN JAMES, CHAPTER 2, AND I BELIEVE IT’S VERSE 20 IT SAYS, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD? BUT WILT THOU KNOW, O VAIN MAN, THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD? IN OTHER WORDS, HEARING IS THE FIRST STEP AND THAT’S HOW FAITH COMES TO YOU, BUT IF YOU DON’T ACT ON YOUR FAITH, WELL THEN YOUR FAITH IS DEAD, OR YOU COULD SAY IT’S INCOMPLETE. I THINK IT WAS KENNETH HAGIN THAT USED TO SAY, FAITH WITHOUT CORRESPONDING ACTIONS WAS DEAD. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU GOT TO DO SOMETHING. YOU KNOW, IF YOU WERE HERE WITH ME AND YOU WERE IN A… AN AUDITORIUM OR SOMETHING AND IF I WAS MINISTERING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I SAID, THERE’S A FIRE AND UNLESS WE GET OUT OF HERE WE’RE GOING TO DIE. YOU KNOW, IF YOU REALLY BELIEVED WHAT I WAS SAYING THEN I GUARANTEE YOU, THERE WOULD BE SOME ACTION TO CORRESPOND, TO GO ALONG WITH WHAT YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE. A PERSON THAT WOULD JUST SIT THERE AND SAY, WELL I BELIEVE ANDREW AND I’M GOING TO DIE UNLESS I MOVE, AND YET YOU DIDN’T DO SOMETHING. WE WOULD THINK THAT PERSON DIDN’T REALLY BELIEVE. NOW THERE IS VARIANCE. THERE IS…THERE IS ROOM FOR DIFFERENT ACTIONS. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT PANIC. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT FAINT. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SCREAM. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT RUN. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT TRY AND PUT OUT THE FIRE. BUT IF A PERSON JUST SAT THERE AND SAID, OH, I BELIEVE I’M GOING TO DIE UNLESS I MOVE, BUT THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING, WE WOULD THINK SOMETHING’S WRONG. YOUR ELEVATOR DOESN’T GO TO THE TOP FLOOR. SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER YOU DO NOT REALLY BELIEVE OR THERE WOULD BE ACTIONS. AND YET, WE HAVE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME THAT IN THE CHRISTIAN REALM, IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM, THEY’LL SAY, OH, I BELIEVE THAT BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS I’M HEALED, BUT THEN ALL OF THEIR ACTIONS ARE INCONSISTENT WITH THAT. FOR INSTANCE, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE HEALED, THEN START ACTING HEALED. NOW THAT IS A POWERFUL STATEMENT RIGHT THERE AND MOST CHRISTIANS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT IF WE ARE GOING TO SAY THAT WE BELIEVE THAT WE ARE HEALED, THEN YOU NEED TO START ACTING HEALED. NOW THERE IS, THERE IS ROOM FOR US. YOU KNOW, JESUS TOLD PEOPLE, HE SAID, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH SO BE IT DONE UNTO YOU. THERE WERE SOME PEOPLE THAT, LIKE THIS WOMAN, WERE SO STRONG IN FAITH THAT THEY JUST REACHED OUT AND TOUCHED IT, AND THEY, IN A SENSE, GRABBED THE HEALING AND TOOK IT ON THEIR OWN. BUT THEN THERE’S OTHER PEOPLE THAT THEY HAD TO BE BROUGHT BY SOMEBODY ELSE AND JESUS HAD TO HELP THEM LIKE THE MAN WHOSE, HAD THE LUNATIC SON OR THE PERSON THAT THE SON THAT HAD THESE SEIZURES. IT’S RECORDED IN MARK, CHAPTER 9 AND ALSO IN MATTHEW, CHAPTER 17. JESUS, THAT WAS MINISTERING TO THE FATHER OF THE CHILD AND THE MAN SAID, LORD, I BELIEVE; HELP MY UNBELIEF. AND JESUS HAD TO HELP HIM. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT JUST REACH OUT AND TAKE HEALING. THERE’S OTHER PEOPLE THAT THE… YOU KNOW, THEY NEED HELP AND THE LORD SAID, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH. IN OTHER WORDS, HE WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE. NOT EVERYBODY IS TO THE PLACE THAT THEY CAN JUST STAND AND THROW AWAY THEIR MEDICINE, REFUSE AN OPERATION, AND JUST RECEIVE THEIR HEALING. I BELIEVE THAT THAT WOULD BE THE BEST. BUT GOD WOULD MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT YOU JUST DON’T HAVE FAITH NOT TO DO THE THINGS THAT COULD BE DONE IN THE NATURAL. NOW I’M NOT AGAINST ANYBODY WHO DOES THAT, BUT I’M SAYING, I…I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY WOULDN’T THINK IT WAS GOD’S BEST TO BE HEALED WITHOUT AN OPERATION [CLEARS THROAT] OR HEALED WITHOUT MEDICATION. I THINK THAT THAT’S GOD’S BEST BUT NOT EVERYBODY’S THERE. GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE AND IT’S NOT THAT SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER YOU’RE AN INFERIOR PERSON OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. [COUGHS] I’M NOT SAYING THAT STUFF AT ALL, BUT I AM SAYING THAT GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE. SO WHEN YOU START TALKING ABOUT THAT YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE ACTION, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. IT’S…IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU DON’T TRY AND ACT ON MY FAITH. YOU NEED TO ACT ACCORDING TO WHERE YOUR FAITH IS. NOW I REALLY BELIEVE THAT I’M AT A PLACE, AND I HAVE PROVEN THIS. I’VE HAD THINGS GO WRONG WITH ME THAT IN THE NATURAL PEOPLE WOULD GO TO A DOCTOR. THEY WOULD TAKE MEDICATION, AND I’M JUST AT A PLACE TO WHERE I CAN BELIEVE AND RECEIVE, AND I’VE LEARNED THESE LAWS AND I’VE STOOD AND I’VE SEEN SUPERNATURAL MIRACULOUS HEALINGS. A PERSON CAN HEAR MY TESTIMONY AND THINK THAT SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER THEY’VE GOT TO DO IT EXACTLY THE WAY THAT I DO, AND IF YOUR FAITH ISN’T TO THAT PLACE AND YOU GO THROW AWAY YOUR MEDICINE OR YOU DON’T TAKE THE OPERATION, YOU COULD DIE IN THE PROCESS, AND THAT IS NOT WHAT I’M ADVOCATING AT ALL. I THINK THAT WE OUGHT TO BE SHOOTING FOR GOD’S BEST, BUT YOU NEED TO BE JUST HONEST ENOUGH TO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE. YOU KNOW, I’M IN SOME THINGS RIGHT NOW. THIS IS NOT CON…SPECIFICALLY HEALING BUT IT’S TALKING ABOUT FINANCES. I’M IN A PLACE WHERE I’VE SPENT OVER $75 MILLION BUILDING BUILDINGS, AND WE’VE GOT A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON, AND ANYWAY, WE JUST CAME TO A SITUATION. I…I’M DOING IT DEBT-FREE BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THAT’S GOD’S BEST. I’VE SPENT $75 MILLION DEBT-FREE. BUT WE ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE TWO OR THREE PROJECTS ARE HAPPENING AT ONCE, AND SOME THINGS CAME UP AND I HAD TO TAKE OUT A TEMPORARY BRIDGE LOAN UNTIL WE GET SOME OTHER THINGS IN PLACE AND STUFF, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON’T BELIEVE THAT THAT’S GOD’S BEST. I REALLY DON’T, AND I HATED DOING IT. I PRAYED ABOUT IT, BUT WE WERE JUST IN A SITUATION WHERE I HAD TO MAKE A DECISION, AND I WENT AHEAD AND TOOK OUT A TEMPORARY BRIDGE LOAN. I’M BELIEVING TO GET IT PAID OFF IN JUST A MATTER OF DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS AT THE MAXIMUM, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON’T BELIEVE THAT’S GOD’S BEST, BUT I DON’T BELIEVE GOD’S MAD AT ME. I DON’T BELIEVE I’VE SINNED. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT GOD IS ANGRY AT ME, BUT, I AM NOT COMPLACENT. I AM NOT GOING TO STAY WHERE I AM. I’M PUSHING FOR THE BETTER. AND SEE, THIS IS THE WAY I BELIEVE IT IS IN HEALING. I DON’T BELIEVE THAT GOD IS MAD AT YOU IF YOU GO THROUGH ALL OF THE MEDICAL STUFF. BUT, MAN, IT’S EXPENSIVE. IT HAS SIDE EFFECTS TO ALL OF THIS MEDICINE. THERE IS RECROUP… RECUPERATION TIME FROM…FROM OPERATIONS, AND MANY TIMES COMPLICATIONS. I COULDN’T TELL YOU THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE THAT I’VE PRAYED WITH THAT WENT IN FOR SOMETHING RELATIVELY MINOR AND YET, THEY HAD A MAJOR SIDE EFFECT TO IT AND HERE THEY ARE YEARS LATER DEALING WITH THINGS. THAT’S JUST NOT GOD’S BEST, BUT GOD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE SO PLEASE DON’T MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I’M SAYING, BUT WHAT I AM SAYING THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE HEALED BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS, THEN YOU NEED TO START ACTING LIKE. YOU KNOW, IF YOUR FAITH ISN’T TO THE PLACE THAT YOU COULD JUST STOP YOUR MEDICATION BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE HEALED, WELL THEN MAYBE YOU’RE AT A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD START DECREASING IT. YOU COULD START, YOU KNOW, WEANING YOURSELF OFF OF IT. IF YOU CAN’T SIT THERE AND DO EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE, WELL THEN DO WHAT YOU CAN DO. YOU KNOW, CARLIE TERRADEZ WHO THEIR LITTLE DAUGHTER HANNAH WAS HEALED. WE PLAYED HER HEALING JOURNEY ALREADY, BUT, AND THAT’S A GREAT TESTIMONY. BUT CARLIE HERSELF HAS BEEN HEALED OF, OF MULTIPLE THINGS, AND SHE WAS ACTUALLY IN A WHEELCHAIR AND SHE COULD NOT STAND ON HER OWN, BUT SHE JUST GOT TO BELIEVING THAT SHE WAS HEALED AND SHE WAS GOING TO ACT HEALED. AND SHE WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR AND I FORGET THE EXACT DETAILS. I’VE HEARD HER TELL THIS STORY, BUT IT TOOK HER, I DON’T KNOW, 10, 15, 20 MINUTES TO PULL HERSELF UP OUT OF THE WHEELCHAIR INTO A STANDING POSITION. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT WASN’T WHAT SHE FELT LIKE DOING, BUT SHE DID WHAT SHE COULD DO. AND THEN, ONCE SHE WAS IN THAT STANDING POSITION, IT TOOK HER ANOTHER 20 MINUTES OR SO TO WALK FROM THERE TO HER FRONT DOOR, BUT SHE JUST FORCED HERSELF AND SHE WASN’T ABLE TO WALK NORMAL. IT WAS JUST BARELY GETTING BY. BUT SHE STARTED DOING SOMETHING AND ONCE SHE GOT TO THE FRONT DOOR, SHE SAYS, WELL I’M NOT GOING TO STOP HERE, AND SHE JUST KEPT MOVING. AND ANYWAY, SHE WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR IN JUST A FEW MINUTES BEFORE AND SHE WOUND UP WALKING TWO MILES DOWN TO WHERE SOME FRIENDS OF HERS WERE PLAYING TENNIS AND SHE ACTUALLY PLAYED A GAME OF TENNIS. NOW THAT TOOK A WHILE. IT TOOK MAYBE FOR THIS WHOLE THING, MAYBE AN HOUR OR MORE, BUT SHE STARTED DOING WHAT SHE COULD DO AND AS YOU DO WHAT YOU CAN DO, WELL THEN IT RELEASES THIS FAITH. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. YOU GOT TO START DOING SOMETHING. SMITH WIGGLESWORTH WHO WAS A POWERFUL MAN OF GOD AND HE SAW JUST AMAZING MIRACLES HAPPEN. I REMEMBER ONE STORY HE WENT INTO PRAY FOR A PERSON THAT HAD BEEN IN A COMA, AND HE SAYS, YOU GOT TO DO SOMETHING, AND THE PEOPLE SAID, THEY’RE IN A COMA, AND HE SAYS, NO, THEIR SPIRIT’S ALIVE. THEY CAN DO SOMETHING. NOW THIS PERSON THAT WAS IN A COMA COULDN’T DO MUCH, BUT HE SAYS, DO SOMETHING. HE SAYS, MOVE SOMETHING. YOU GOT TO HAVE SOME ACT OF FAITH, AND DID YOU KNOW THAT THIS PERSON THAT WAS IN A COMA FINALLY WIGGLED THEIR LITTLE FINGER. THEIR LITTLE FINGER BEGAN TO TWITCH, AND HE SAYS, THAT’S ENOUGH, AND HE PRAYED FOR THEM, AND ANYWAY, SAW HIM RAISED UP AND HEALED. I’M TELLING YOU, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND. THEY SIT HERE AND PRAY, AND THEY SAY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS I’M HEALED, AND THEN YOU ACT SICK. YOU TALK SICK. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU’RE WELL, YOU GOT TO START ACTING WELL. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. AND IT GOES ON TO SAY IN JAMES, CHAPTER 2 THAT YOU SEE HOW THAT FAITH WROUGHT WITH WORKS, AND BY F…BY WORKS WAS FAITH MADE PERFECT? NOW AGAIN, I COULD SPEND A LOT OF TIME EXPLAINING THAT. I AM NOT SAYING THAT YOU JUST ACTING WELL IS GOING TO CAUSE YOU TO BE WELL. BUT, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE WELL, YOUR FAITH ISN’T GOING TO REACH ITS FULL POTENTIAL UNTIL YOU START ACTING IN AGREEMENT WITH WHAT YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE. YOU KNOW, I HAD AN INSTANCE. I’VE HAD…I’VE HAD THIS HAPPEN MANY TIMES TO ME BUT THERE WAS AN INSTANCE WHEN WE LIVED IN SEAGOVILLE TEXAS AND I WAS OUTSIDE WORKING AROUND AND WE HAD A GARAGE DOOR THAT WHEN YOU OPENED THIS GARAGE DOOR IT HAD A PLACE WHERE IT WOULD GET CAUGHT SOMETIMES, AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD OPEN AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD GET CAUGHT AND IT’D JUST STICK. WELL ANYWAY, I WAS JUST LIFTING THIS GARAGE DOOR AND I JUST JERKED IT UP AND IT HIT THAT SPOT AND IT JUST STOPPED, AND WHEN I DID, IT DID SOMETHING TO MY BACK. I FELL ON THE GROUND. I WAS IN TERRIBLE PAIN. AND MY OLDEST SON, JOSHUA, WAS ONLY A YEAR OLD AND HE WAS OUT THERE WITH ME, AND I COULDN’T EVEN YELL FOR HELP TO JAMIE. I HAD TO JUST WHISPER, AND I SAID, GO GET MOMMY, AND JOSHUA WOULD JUST STAND THERE AND SAY, MOMMY. AND, ANYWAY, I LAID THERE WALLOWING ON THE DRIVEWAY FOR A LONG TIME. FINALLY, JAMIE CAME OUT TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON AND I WHISPERED TO HER THAT I’D HURT MY BACK AND SHE PRAYED FOR ME, AND THEN YANKED ME UP BECAUSE, AGAIN, SHE BELIEVES IN THIS SAME THING. YOU GOT TO ACT LIKE YOU’RE HEALED, SO SHE HELPED ME GET UP. AND ANYWAY, I HAD TERRIBLE PAIN AND MY SHOULDERS WERE THROWN BACK LIKE THIS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, BUT I COULDN’T STRAIGHTEN UP. MYSH…MY SHOULDER BLADES IN THE BACK WERE TOUCHING. AND SO, INSTEAD OF JUST LAYING DOWN OR DOING SOMETHING OR GOING TO A DOCTOR, AGAIN, IT DEPENDS WHERE YOU ARE. I’M NOT SAYING IT WOULD’VE BEEN SIN, BUT I BELIEVE GOD’S BEST WAS FOR ME TO JUST STAND AND BELIEVE. I STARTED EXERCISING. I STARTED DOING SIT-UPS, PUSHUPS. ALL OF THESE THINGS HURT, BUT I JUST WAS RESISTING. AND ANYWAY, I WENT ALL DAY LONG. I FINALLY WENT TO BED BECAUSE I WOULD’VE GONE TO BED IF I’D HAVE BEEN TOTALLY WELL. I FINALLY WENT TO BED, PRAY, I SLEPT GOOD. WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING I WAS LAYING IN BED. THERE WAS NO PAIN, AND I THOUGHT, PRAISE GOD. EVERYTHING’S GOOD. AS SOON AS I STOOD UP, MY SHOULD BLADES WENT BACK LIKE THAT…AND THAT PAIN CAME BACK. AND ANYWAY, IT’S A LONG STORY BUT FINALLY I HAD, I WAS BEING ORDAINED TO THE MINISTRY THAT NIGHT, AND I STARTED TO CALL AND TELL THEM I CAN’T COME, AND I THOUGHT, WELL, THAT’S NOT CONSISTENT WITH BELIEVING THAT I’M HEALED. I BELIEVED THAT I’M HEALED I’M GOING TO GO, AND SO I WENT AHEAD AND STARTED GETTING READY AND I WAS WASHING MY HAIR AND WHEN I PUT MY HEAD OVER LIKE THIS…IS WHEN THE PAIN WAS THE WORST, AND I STARTED TO HAVE JAMIE COME AND WASH MY HAIR FOR ME AND I SAID, NO. IF I WAS HEALED I’D WASH MY OWN HAIR. I DON’T HAVE TO HAVE MY WIFE COME WASH MY HAIR FOR ME AND SO I JUST PUT MY HEAD OVER AND IT HURT AND I WAS PRAYING IN TONGUES, AND SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE FIRST AND THE SECOND RINSE, ALL OF THE PAIN LEFT AND BY THE TIME WE GOT TO THAT MEETING I WAS COMPLETELY NORMAL. AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DID. I NEVER GOT IT DIAGNOSED, BUT I CAN GUARANTEE YOU, IT WAS BAD. I WAS IN BAD SHAPE, AND THAT HAS BEEN 40 YEARS AGO OR SOMETHING AND I HAVE NEVER HAD A BACK PROBLEM. I DO A LOT OF WORK, AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU, IF I’D HAVE GONE THE MEDICAL ROUTE, THEY MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIX IT, BUT I KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE HAD BACK SURGERIES AND THINGS THAT HAVE SUFFERED THE REST OF THEIR LIFE. I BELIEVE THAT SEE, YOU JUST GOT TO ACT ON YOUR FAITH. NOW AGAIN, IF YOUR FAITH ISN’T WHERE MINE IS, I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOU’RE WRONG TO GO AND TAKE A PAINKILLER OR TO GO AND GET SURGERY OR SOMETHING. BUT I’M SAYING WE OUGHT TO BE ACTING AND RESISTING. DON’T JUST SUBMIT. DON’T BECOME PASSIVE. DON’T LET OTHER PEOPLE JUST DICTATE TO YOU. DON’T LET PAIN AND SICKNESS CONTROL YOUR LIFE. YOU KNOW, IF YOU’RE PERSON, I’VE ACTUALLY HAD PEOPLE BEFORE THAT WERE JUST GERMAPHOBIC, I GUESS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE RIGHT WORD IS, BUT THEY JUST WERE THESE PEOPLE THAT WERE COMPULSIVE, AND THEY COULDN’T TOUCH ANYTHING, AND I REMEMBER THIS ONE LADY WHO JUST COULDN’T EVEN THINK OF TOUCHING THE CARPET. MAN, I PRAYED WITH HER AND REBUKED THAT STUFF AND GOT IT OUT OF HER, AND THEN I TOOK HER HAND AND I PUT IT ON THE CARPET AND STARTED MOVING IT AROUND. AND AT FIRST, SHE RES…RE… REACTED TO THAT LIKE, NO, THIS IS THE WORST THING SHE COULD POSSIBLY DO, BUT I WAS HELPING HER RESIST HER FEAR, AND YOU KNOW WHAT, SHE GOT OVER IT. IF YOU BELIEVED THAT GOD HAS SET YOU FREE, EVENTUALLY YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO START ACTING IN FAITH, AND AGAIN, PLEASE DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND WHAT I’M SAYING. I AM NOT AGAINST DOCTORS. IF IT WASN’T FOR DOCTORS ALL THE CHRISTIANS WOULD BE DEAD, BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T BEEN STANDING AND BELIEVING GOD, AND SO I’M NOT AGAINST DOCTORS. I’M NOT AGAINST MEDICATION, BUT I’M SAYING THAT’S NOT GOD’S BEST. AND INSTEAD OF JUST PASSIVELY SUBMITTING, YOU NEED TO ACT. THIS WOMAN HEARD ABOUT JESUS, BUT THEN SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THERE WAS PEOPLE THRONGING JESUS. IT WASN’T EASY FOR HER TO GET THROUGH THAT CROWD. PLUS SHE HAD AN ISSUE OF BLOOD. SHE COULD’VE BEEN STONED TO DEATH IF PEOPLE WOULD’VE KNOWN WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER. SHE PUT HER LIFE ON THE LINE. SHE WASN’T PASSIVE AT ALL, AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS THAT I SEE IN THE PEOPLE THAT I MINISTER HEALING TO IS JUST A PASSIVENESS. THEY JUST SAY, WELL, I KNOW THAT GOD CAN HEAL. IF HE WANTS TO HEAL ME, HE WILL. NO, THAT’S NOT THE WAY IT WORKS. THAT’S LIKE A PERSON SAYING, WELL, IF GOD WANTS TO SAVE ME, HE’LL SAVE ME. NO, JESUS HAS ALREADY SAVED YOU. HE’S ALREADY DIED FOR YOUR SINS, AND NOW, YOU HAVE TO CONFESS. YOU HAVE TO MAKE HIM LORD. YOU HAVE TO REACH OUT AND TAKE THAT SALVATION. YOU KNOW WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID, MY FAMILY WENT TO CHURCH EVERY TIME THE DOORS WERE OPEN. WE WERE LIKE SKUNKS. WE HAD OUR OWN PEW, AMEN? THAT WAS OUR PEW. WE SAT IN THAT PLACE, AND IT WAS ON THE FRONT ROW, AND THAT’S THE WAY I GREW UP. BUT, I WAS IN A VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL AND THERE WAS ABOUT 600 KIDS IN THIS THING, AND WE MARCHED IN ACCORDING TO OUR GROUPS AND SAT WITH OUR CLASSES, AND I WAS ON THE VERY BACK OF THIS AUDITORIUM WITH 600 KIDS IN THERE. AND THERE WAS A MAN WHO STOOD UP AND HE TOOK ONE DOLLAR, AND BACK WHEN I WAS A KID A DOLLAR WAS A LOT OF MONEY. THAT WAS MY WHOLE WEEK’S ALLOWANCE, AND HE TOOK ONE DOLLAR AND HELD IT IN THE AIR, AND HE SAYS, I’LL GIVE THIS DOLLAR BILL TO THE FIRST KID WHO COMES UP HERE AND TAKES IT. AND INSTANTLY, ALL OF THESE KIDS THAT WERE AT THE FRONT, RAN UP THERE. THERE WAS 20 OR 30 KIDS AROUND HIM JUST SAYING, I WANT IT, I WANT IT. AND I THOUGHT, OF ALL OF THE TIMES TO BE SITTING AT THE BACK OF THE CHURCH, THIS WAS THE WORST TIME. BUT THIS GUY JUST KEPT HIS HAND IN THE AIR LIKE THIS… AND HE SAYS, I’LL GIVE THIS DOLLAR BILL TO THE FIRST KID THAT COMES UP HERE AND TAKES IT. AND EVERYBODY WAS WONDERING, WHAT’S HE TALKING ABOUT? THEY’RE ALL UP THERE. THEY ALL WANT IT. BUT HE JUST KEPT REPEATING THIS OVER AND OVER. AND FINALLY, IT HIT MY LIGHTNING FAST MIND WHAT THIS GUY WAS SAYING. I…I RAN OUT OF MY PEW. I RAN DOWN THE…THE…TO THE FRONT OF THE CHURCH. I PUSHED MY WAY THROUGH THESE KIDS AND THIS GUY HAD HIS ARM UP LIKE THIS…AND I REACHED UP AND GRABBED HIS ARM AND CLIMBED UP HIS SIDE AND I REACHED UP THERE AND GRABBED THAT DOLLAR BILL OUT OF HIS HAND. AND HE SAID, NOW, ALL OF YOU WANTED IT, BUT HE SAYS, THAT’S THE FIRST KID THAT CAME UP HERE AND TOOK IT, AND HE WAS USING THAT TO ILLUSTRATE THAT JESUS HAS PROVIDED SALVATION. HE’S OFFERING IT, BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT. YOU CAN’T JUST SAY, I WANT IT. YOU CAN’T PASSIVELY ASK GOD TO SAVE YOU. YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT JESUS IS LORD, AND…AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE SAVED. YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT BY FAITH, AND SEE, THAT’S WHAT I DID, AND YOU KNOW THAT WAS AN ILLUSTRATION THAT IT WASN’T LONG AFTER THAT UNTIL I GOT BORN AGAIN. THAT REALLY IMPRESSED ME. WELL IT’S THE SAME THING WITH HEALING. I SEE PEOPLE THAT SAY, OH, GOD, I KNOW THAT YOU CAN HEAL. I ASK YOU TO HEAL ME. WOULD YOU STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND IF IT BE YOUR WILL? PRETTY PLEASE HEAL ME? YOU’RE GOING TO DIE PRAYING LIKE THAT. YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT GOD HAS DONE IT. THAT’S HEARING. YOU HAVE TO HEAR THE TRUTH. I’M TELLING YOU THAT BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN HEALED AND THAT HEALING MIRACULOUS POWER IS DEPOSITED ON THE INSIDE OF YOU IF YOU ARE BORN AGAIN. YOU HAVE TO HEAR THAT, BUT THEN, YOU HAVE TO ACT. SHE NOT ONLY HEARD, BUT THEN SHE CAME IN THE PRESS BEHIND. SHE ACTED ON THE WORD. AND THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT’LL SAY, OH, GOD, I KNOW YOU CAN, AND THEY MAY EVEN SAY, I BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE DONE IT, BUT THEN ALL OF THEIR ACTIONS ARE CONTRARY. IF THIS WOMAN WOULD’VE JUST SAT AT HOME AND HAVE SAID, WELL MAN, I’VE HEARD ABOUT JESUS, AND I BELIEVE IF I COULD TOUCH THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT, I’LL BE MADE WHOLE, AND IF SHE, SHE COULD’VE BELIEVED IT. SHE COULD’VE TALKED ABOUT IT. SHE COULD’VE TOLD OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT IT, BUT IF SHE WOULD’VE STAYED AT HOME, AND HAVE NEVER COME, AND HAVE GONE THROUGH THAT CROWD, AND FOUGHT HER WAY THROUGH ALL OF THE OPPOSITION, AND HAD TOUCHED THE HEM OF JESUS’ GARMENT, SHE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN HEALED. SHE HAD TO ACT ON IT. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. AND THERE ARE SOME OF YOU THAT ARE BELIEVING GOD FOR HEALING, BUT YOU AREN’T ACTING HEALED. GET UP OUT OF YOUR WHEELCHAIR. IF YOU CAN’T STAND, IF YOU’RE A QUADRIPLEGIC, WELL THEN MOVE SOMETHING. DO SOMETHING. BELIEVE GOD TO MOVE YOUR BIG TOE, YOUR LITTLE FINGER, AND ONCE THAT STARTS MOVING, WELL THEN MOVE THE NEXT ONE AND START DOING SOMETHING. YOU RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE’LL FLEE FROM YOU. YOU RESIST SICKNESS AND THAT SICKNESS WILL FLEE FROM YOU BUT START DOING SOMETHING. DO WHAT YOU CAN DO. IF YOU CAN’T DO IT ALL, DO PART OF IT. THE LORD WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOUR FAITH IS BUT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. YOU’VE GOT TO START ACTING WELL. >> ON SEPTEMBER 16TH THROUGH THE 21ST GUEST SPEAKER ANDREW WOMMACK WILL JOIN PASTOR DEAN MELTON AT THE FINAL FREEDOM CHRISTIAN CENTER CAMP MEETING.

you’re watching Legacy Television! I’m Jeremy Pearsons,
and we’re so thankful to have you with us today here in the
house of faith. You know for the last several months really here
on Legacy T.V. we’ve been talking about the anointing, and
there’s been such a hunger in our hearts, and a desire to know
more about the anointing. Just really basically, what it is.
What is the anointing? Where does it come from? Do I have any
of it, and if I do, how can I get more of it? What’s the
anointing on your life, and honestly, that is one of the
greatest things any believer could ever find out, is what
they’ve been anointed by God to do. You know, it took the
anointing on Jesus’ life for him to do the things that he did,
say the things that he said, and if it took the anointing on him,
what do you think it’s going to take for you? It’s going to take
God’s anointing, his spirit with you, in you, on you, and working
through you. And right now we’re going to take you right back
into Family Night, and we’re going to keep talking about the
anointing, the strength that comes from it, and what it is to
be anointed. But not just anointed, but anointed with this
fresh oil, the oil of joy. And we know from the Scriptures that
the joy of the Lord is our strength. I believe today as you
watch this you’re going to be strengthened, you’re going to be
encouraged, and you’ll be blessed. Let’s go right now to
Family Night. Psalm ninety two. And we’re going to look at that
verse again that we spent some time with last month. If you
weren’t with us last month, we missed you. I will just say that
it was by far and away my favorite time that we’ve had
together so far. And so we’re making some TV broadcasts out of
that right away, and just within the next probably month or so,
I’m guessing, it’ll be on our website. It’ll be on the Legacy
Television broadcast, you can catch up then. But for months
now, we’ve been talking about the anointing. The anointing.
And I told you it kind of came out of this time where it just
kept coming back up in my heart. Even though the anointing was
something, you know, I heard about growing up. You grow up in
church, especially one like the one I grew up in, this was not a
foreign concept to us. We talked about it, it was talked about,
taught about, preached about. And it was common to us, but
even in the ━ just with that as a background, just within the
last few months, you’ve got to pay attention when the Holy
Spirit starts talking to you about things you thought you
already knew. That’s an indicator of what? You don’t
know. Or, you don’t know what you need to know. Or, you don’t
know all there is to know. And that probably shouldn’t surprise
us to think, “Oh my gosh, I don’t know everything yet!”
Surprise, surprise. We know in part, don’t we? And it’s a very
small part at that. But He began talking, really not even talking
to me, just stirring about a hunger on the inside about the
anointing. What is it? Where does it come from? Do I have
any? If I do, can I get some more of it? You know, what do I
do with it? What’s it for? And over the last several months,
I’ve just come to really firmly believe that one of the most
important things that any believer can ever find out in
this life is, “What are you anointed to do? What is God on
you for? What reason?” Because once you find that out, it’s
then upon you to just give your life to that thing. Give your
life to that assignment. And we’ve talked ━ we’ve looked at
Isaiah chapter ten, verse twenty seven, you don’t have to turn
there. We may be able to put it up on the wall here for you. But
it says, “It shall come to pass on that day that his burden will
be removed from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and
the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing.” So
we’ve already established, and most of you know this, or you’re
familiar with it to a degree, that the anointing is the burden
removing, yoke destroying, power of God. But the thing that we’ve
got to get really clear is it’s the only thing that will remove
a burden and destroy a yoke. Nothing else can do it. Not
somebody’s gifting, not somebody has talent. Somebody’s gifting,
somebody’s ability, somebody’s talent it can do a lot of
things, and it can do a lot of good things. It can fill up a
room, it can pack a stadium. It can impress people, it can wow
people. But where it will always come short is in the removing of
a burden and the destroying of a yoke. It can’t do that. Only the
anointing can. So we’ve talked about what the anointing is. It
removes burdens, destroys yokes. This is why Satan is so
terrified of it. This is why he hates it the way he does, is
because he’s in the burden building business. But Jesus is
in the burden removing business, the yoke destroying business. We
talked about the anointing that was on Jesus. You see in the
book of Acts chapter ten, verse thirty eight, what’s it say?
“How God,” did what? “anointed Jesus of Nazareth,” I like this
that it brings out his hometown. It seems like ━ it seems like
important information, right? You know what I mean? It’s nice
to have Jesus from over there in Nazareth. What’s the
significance of that? Here’s the point. Jesus ministered, as a
man, anointed. A man from that town. A man from down own the st
for many of these people. So every miracle, every message,
all the ministry, every blind eye opened, every dead raised,
it was the result of a man anointed. Every burden removed,
every yoke destroyed was because a man. God anointed a man. And
we’ve got to be clear about that. He was ━ yes, he was, and
is, God. But the Bible tells us He emptied himself of that,
wrapped flesh around Him. This is why you don’t see little baby
Jesus performing miracles. This is why toddler Jesus isn’t
walking across the surface of the kiddie pool. This is why
teenage Jesus isn’t delivering masterful messages. Why? Why?
Why? What happened at thirty? Well, He went under the waters
of baptism, came up anointed by the Holy Ghost and power, and it
launched him into His ministry. A man, anointed. Well, let’s
just do some quick reasoning here. If Jesus needed the
anointed to do what He was called to do, guess what you
need? The anointing. You’re not going to be able to do it
without it. Put that verse back up there, notice what happens
with the anointing. “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with
the Holy Spirit and with power, and He went about doing good
healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with
Him.” It’s just a number of different ways of saying the
same thing. He’s anointed. Power is the same way of saying, “He’s
anointed.” The Holy Spirit with Him, in Him, on Him, is the same
way of saying ━ it’s a different way of saying, “He’s anointed.”
“God with Him,” is just another way of saying, “This man is
anointed.” So we looked in the book of Luke chapter four, and
we talked about where Jesus was in the temple and He asked for
the the writings of the prophet Isaiah. And He talked about how
the spirit of the Lord was upon Him, and you remember that from
Luke four. But I want to read it tonight, as we go on in this,
from Isaiah chapter sixty one. And we’ve already established a
number of things about the anointing and I don’t want to
take a lot of time to recap it, but they really do build one
upon another. Again, the anointing is what? It’s the only
thing that removes burdens, destroys yokes. We saw how the
anointing has the ability to turn you into another person.
You remember that, in First Samuel chapter ten? How Samuel
the prophet anointed Saul to be the first king of Israel? Saul,
who was insecure, we see it in his own words. When Samuel
talked to him about the assignment of God in his life,
he said, “I’m the least. I’m the most insignificant. My family’s
the smallest.” He literally said to the prophet, “Why do you talk
to me like I’m somebody important?” You can see the
insecurity, you can see the timidity and the fear. But Saul
━ or, Samuel spoke to him and said, “Here’s what’s about to
happen. You’re anointed.” And he said this to him in chapter ten
of First Samuel, “It’s going to turn you into another person.”
And he said, “Here’s what’s going to happen. You’re going to
stand up and you’re going to prophesy.” I mean, I don’t know,
if we took a quick survey in here of anybody who might
consider themselves just at least, a little bit introverted.
You know, maybe not so comfortable in crowds. Well,
what if we found somebody like that, pulled you up, handed you
a microphone, and said, “Prophesy. Go ahead, prophesy!”
Well, this is what Saul was dealing with, when the anointing
came on and it turned him into somebody else, but Samuel was
clear about his instructions and he said, “See that you do all
that the occasion demands you to do.” So in other words, the
anointing on you will put you in situations that require the
anointing on you. That’s what I believe. I do, and Sarah and I
do together with our lives. You know, I’m standing in front of
you tonight, and I honestly would not do this if there
wasn’t something in me that believes that there was an
anointing available here to do this. This is an occasion that
demands not a gifting, not a talent, thank God. It requires
an anointing. It demands an anointing. Well, there’s there’s
something on your life that will constantly put you in an
environment, in a situation, that demands what’s on you,
requires what God has put in you. And this is what Saul said
to Samuel, “See that you do it.” So when you’re talking about the
anointing, whatever it is, one of the main things you have to
remember is it must be yielded to. See, the anointing was on
Saul. God was with him to do it, but Samuel said, “You’re gonna
have to yield to it.” Even when the anointing is present, you
still have to yield to it. So we established the anointing can
turn you into another person. We’ve established that the
anointing isn’t just for you. It’s on you, but not it’s not on
you just for you, it’s for the people around you. We talked
about how the anointing must be inspected for or looked closely
for it. Respect the anointing, protect the anointing. We talked
last month about having this fresh thing with God. You
remember what we saw in Psalm ninety two? We can go ahead and
put that on the screen for us. Psalm ninety two, verse ten, put
that back up there for us, Elijah. You might remember what
the Psalmist said he said, “You have exalted my horn, or my
strength, like that of a wild ox.” You remember he said that?
He said, “I have been anointed with,” what kind of oil?
“Fresh.” Fresh oil. We talked about how God has put something
in every one of us that doesn’t just prefer something fresh, we
crave something fresh. We crave freshness in our relationships.
We crave freshness in our lives, in every area. But there is no
one area of your life where you should crave it, and want it,
and desire it more than in your fellowship with the Lord.
Because He craves it. And if this thing that you have with
Him is old, and dry, and stale, and boring to you, guess what?
It probably is to Him to. I mean, He’s probably not just
sitting there you know, ready for you to come and you know,
check off the box and walk through the paces, and go
through the motions. He wants a fresh thing. The psalmist sat s,
“You’ve anointed me with a fresh oil.” We talked about times of
refreshing that come from the presence of the Lord. The
strengthening that comes out of that. But I want you to see ━ go
ahead and turn to Isaiah sixty one. This is what Jesus quoted
when they handed him the scrolls there in the temple that day.
We’re going to build on where we’ve already been, but listen
to this. Man, I’m excited about this. Oh my gosh. Guys, the Lord
said some some stuff today that I cannot wait. I just━ there’s
about a thousand and one things going on in here, so I’ll be
surprised if we get to all of it. But you guys, you can help
me out with this right? Okay. In Isaiah sixty one, beginning in
verse one. The Prophet Isaiah is speaking, but I want you to hear
these words coming out of the mouth of Jesus because they did.
Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,” why?
“Because He’s anointed Me,” to do what? “Preach good tidings to
the poor.” Jesus said it like this, “preach the gospel,” which
is good news. “Preach the Gospel to the poor.” So, again what is
poverty? It’s a burden, it’s a yoke, and Jesus was, and is,
anointed to lift that burden and destroy that yoke. That’s what
poverty is. “He sent me to heal the broken hearted.” A broken
heart is a burden, it’s a yoke, and Jesus is anointed to heal
that burden, lift that burden, destroy that yoke and heal that
broken heart. “To proclaim liberty to the captives.”
Captivity, imprisonment to anything, or anyone, is a
burden, it’s a yoke and Jesus is anointed to lift that burden,
and destroy that yoke. What else is the anointing on Him to do?
“To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the Day of
Vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn.” I want you to
notice how many times just in the next verse you hear the same
word come up over, and over, “To comfort all who,” do what?
“Mourn to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them
beauty for ashes. The oil of joy for,” what? “For mourning.” So
you see this mentioned over and over. “The oil of joy for
mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of
heaviness.” I’ve been looking at this verse for… I mean, a long
time, and very concentrated over the last several weeks and
months. But I sensed something in my heart today, that I’ve
never heard the Lord say it in quite this way. But I believe
that what you read here in Isaiah sixty one, in Luke
Chapter four, this was the permanent state and condition of
humanity until Jesus. This was the condition mankind was in.
Poor. I mean, impoverished, impoverished spiritually,
impoverished in the soul, impoverished in the body,
financially, materially. This was the state that Jesus was
born into, into this world. Mankind was poor. Mankind was
broken hearted. Mankind, we certainly know mankind,
humanity, was held captive. We know that mankind and humanity
was bound and that’s in Luke four where it stops, but if you
go on, what else does He talk about? Comforting those who
mourn, consoling those who mourn, giving them beauty for
ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness. Just as much as mankind was poor
and broken hearted and held captive and bound, there was a
permanent state of grief. Can you see that? I mean how many
different times did he just say talk about the mourning that was
taking place, the grieving, the heaviness. I remember what he
said in Psalms ninety two. “I’ve been anointed with a,” what? A
fresh what? “A fresh oil.” This state that mankind was in. Poor,
broken hearted, captive, blind, and grieving and mourning. This
is what Jesus came with the anointing to undo. Now what did
He do it with? We’ve talked about a number of these, but
let’s add this to it tonight. Again, verse three, “To console
those who mourn in Zion, the oil of joy.” What’s this whole
passage about? The anointing. “I’ve been anointed with a fresh
oil.” So he’s talking ing here,e oil of joy is a facet of the
anointing that we’ve got to talk about. This oil of joy. I don’t
know when it was but several years ago now, and I don’t even
know how we got into it, but somebody introduced Sarah to all
these different oils. And there was an oil for everything,
right? I mean, I remember peppermint oils, and other weird
words, Melaleuca oils, and tea tree oils, and… help me out
ladies, because I know you probably have some on you.
Frankincense oils, yes! Myrrh, yes. There was an oil, what was
that? Lavender. Thank you, that’s one of the ones that
often fills our home. Lavender oil. And there was an oil, and I
guess there is, for anything, everything. I mean, we have
lathered our children head to toe at various times in these
oils. And I mean, I remember telltelling Sarah, “Man, my hd
hurts.” Next thing you know I’ve got peppermint oil under my
nose, behind my ears, and you know, you can’t tell if it
really helps or if it’s just so overwhelming that you forget
about the pain. But can I tell you something tonight? That
there is an oil more essential than any of those. And it is the
oil of joy. I am stirred up about Joy. The essential oil.
Amen? He’s talking to them about the oil of joy. The anointing is
the oil of joy. Joy is supposed to be one of those things that
defines us. That makes us different than anyone and
everyone else. Matter of fact, put up Hebrews chapter one,
Elijah. Hebrews chapter one, verse nine. Look at this verse
talking about Jesus. It’s actually a quote from the Psalms
in the Old Testament, but you see it again here in Hebrews.
He’s talking about Jesus, and He says, “You have loved
righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore, or in
light of this, in light of the fact of how much you love
righteousness therefore God, Your God has anointed you with
the oil of gladness,” check this out, “more than your
companions.” So I know it’s typically not right to like,
compare people to people, but in this sense there is a comparison
of Jesus to literally every body else. And what’s the anointing
that’s on Him, and is in is on Him in a greater degree than it
is on anyone else? It’s this anointing. This oil of gladness.
This oil of joy. Now, back up again and notice what he said
leading into it. He said, “You have loved righteousness and
hated lawlessness.” And you could, in the context of this,
assume that he meant more than anybody else. And there’s sort
of an automatic picture that our hearts generate when we think
about somebody like this. Somebody super-duper spiritual,
you know what I mean? Like extra, extra, Christian. Really,
really saved. And typically the idea and the picture that comes
to mind is kind of this ━ this look right here. You know, just
that super serious. “This isn’t funny. We don’t mess around with
the things of God. Let’s pray.” You know what I mean? We’re
trying to get that idea of somebody, and even when they are
joking, there’s some scriptural reference to it, you know what I
mean? But Jesus, who loved righteousness more than anybody
else, and hated lawlessness, hated sin more than anybody
else, the defining characteristic on his life ━
more than anybody else ━ was what? Joy. Gladness. You spend
some time looking at other translations of this talking
about how He was anointed with an exultant joy. I think it’s
the New Living Translation that literally says, “You’ve been
anointed with the oil of joy more than anybody else.” I
looked it up, it literally means, “Excessive joy. Too much
joy.” Jesus, you just got too much joy! Too much of this! The
oil over you. It’s the joy oil. Joil. It’s the joy oil. The joy
oil. But what does ━ what does something or someone that is
dry, lifeless and just kind of crusty… what’s needed? You’ve
got to oil that thing up, right? You’ve got oil that person up,
and some of us need an injection of this, the oil of joy into our
lives! [MUSIC] [MUSIC] I want to take just a moment and update you
with the progress of our Buy Up and Build Out project that’s
going on right now here at Pearsons Ministries
International. We heard from the Lord at the beginning of this
year, and He said, “It’s time to buy up and build out.” We knew
right away He was talking about this ten thousand square foot
building that’s just across the driveway from where I’m sitting
right now inside this building. We’re excited about the prospect
of building out a brand new set for Legacy Television, building
out new music recording. We’re excited about what the Lord is
instructing us to do, but more than just a building, this thing
is a platform. It’s a platform with a purpose. Not a platform
for a person, but for a purpose, and the purpose is preaching
Jesus all over the world, serving our generation with the
Word of God and teaching them how to live by faith in the day
of grace. And that’s what this building is all about and we’re
believing God that at one hundred dollars a square foot,
this ten thousand square foot building can be bought, and we
can build out the music and television recording studios
inside. Now, since the beginning of the this year up until our
last report, we’ve had a total of one thousand three hundred
sixty seven square feet paid for, and that is nothing but the
goodness and grace of God! But check this out! Since our last
report, just in the last few weeks, we’ve had an additional
four hundred and twenty five square feet paid for! That puts
us at one thousand seven hundred ninety two square feet! That’s
over seventeen percent, and we give God all the thanks and all
the praise for it! As a matter of fact, in the coming weeks I’m
going to be able to show you some of the equipment we’re
getting ready to purchase for recording music, for recording
television. We’re so stirred up and excited about it, and you’re
a part of it! Whatever God’s calling you to buy and to build
out in your life, I’m telling you every seed reproduces after
its own kind. So ask the Lord if this is the place where you want
to get involved and sow that kind of seed, believing for that
kind of harvest in your life! There’s more information about

of God enlarges your capacity for faith. GLORIA: True
Prosperity is the ability to look a person in the eye in
their moment of impossibility and take their needs on as your
own. GEORGE: Thanksgiving is the answer to faith. It is
the language of faith. The moment you make
the decision to live debt free God sees you
debt free. (Music) GLORIA: Hello, everybody.
Welcome to the Believer’s Voice of Victory. We have
been having a wonderful time with Pastor George
learning more about what belongs to us in the prosperity
realm. GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: That’s important,
George. GEORGE: It really is. You should know what
you’re believing for– GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: –and know what’s
involved in it. That is extremely important. GLORIA: You
know, Ken and I have been believing God for a lot of
years, a lot of years. GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: What, 40? KEN:
50. GLORIA: I don’t know. KEN: 50 years. GLORIA: And all that
time we’ve been tithers and sowers. And I don’t know of any
time, regardless of what was going on in the country–
GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: –in the world, whether it was bad times
or good times, we’ve always been blessed. GEORGE: You really
have. GLORIA: We’ve always had what we needed. GEORGE: Yep.
GLORIA: And that’s just the way it works. GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA:
Glory to God. GEORGE: The Lord has always supplied. He’s always
provided. And you two have really applied the principles of
faith that you learned through Brother Kenneth E. Hagin, the
things that you learned through Oral Roberts, especially in
faith where Brother Ken–Kenneth Hagin is concerned. You–
GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: –that–boy, that first year in
1967– GLORIA: Oh, yeah. We learned faith. GEORGE:
–you–you went to all of the seminars. He had the quarterly,
I guess, seminars, 10-day– GLORIA: Well, we–and we lived
in there for a while. GEORGE: In Tulsa, yeah. And you went to
those, and you learned about the realities of redemption. GLORIA:
It just changed everything. GEORGE: You learned about the
authority of the Word. Gloria, those are–you were in training.
GLORIA: And Ken–Ken was with Brother Roberts. He was learning
about the power of God to heal– GEORGE: The power of God, the
healing and miracle ministry. GLORIA: –faith and miracles,
and– GEORGE: You were good– GLORIA: –I think about that.
GEORGE: –good students. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: And learning how
to walk out the principles of faith so that they are able to
give those principles to us. GLORIA: Amen. GEORGE: Well, what
we’re talking about– GLORIA: And we had nothing. I mean, we
were– GEORGE: Yeah. You were– GLORIA: –we were poverty with a
capital P. GEORGE: Did you live in a shotgun house? Did you live
in one of those? GLORIA: I’d call it a project house. GEORGE:
A project house. GLORIA: But a shotgun house, you could shoot
through it with one shell, all right. Right down close to the
river in Tulsa, you know. GEORGE: Oh, man. GLORIA: But we
had a house. I mean, it wasn’t our house, but we– GEORGE:
Yeah. Yeah. GLORIA: We rented a house. And– GEORGE: Yep.
GLORIA: –when it rained, we didn’t get wet. GEORGE:
That’s–that’s a good thing. Ha-ha. That’s a really good
thing. GLORIA: Yeah. But the thing was, we were–we got
us–we got in all of Brother Hagin’s meetings. GEORGE: Yes.
GLORIA: Ken was travel–he was working with Brother Roberts,
flying on the airplane. So he was in the miracle meetings. Of
course, I was home with the little kids. GEORGE: Yeah.
GLORIA: But still, I had–we had reel-to-reel tapes by then.
GEORGE: You were able to listen. GLORIA: And I was listening to
those, and I was learning. And so I fed myself with the Word.
And the Word is just–it just works. GEORGE: It does. GLORIA:
Boy, you can’t do– GEORGE: It does. GLORIA: –anything better
than learn what belongs to you. See, this is full of stuff that
belongs to me and you– GEORGE: Yep. GLORIA: –in this Word.
And–but if you don’t know it belongs to you, you don’t take
advantage of it. GEORGE: But you– GLORIA: So I’m still
studying. GEORGE: You have–well, I was going to say,
you have more revelation now about the Word and the operation
of the Word– GLORIA: Oh, yeah. GEORGE: –than you did in 1967.
GLORIA: Sure. GEORGE: You’ve grown, you’ve developed. I’ve
developed since I got here in 1976. Oh my, I just–when I got
engaged to Terri and Kenneth found out, he sent me all of his
cassette tapes. He thought, “We needed–” GLORIA: He’s getting
his son-in-law ready. GEORGE: “–We’ve got to get this boy up
to speed really quick.” And I did. I bore down into those and
listened to them up at school. I listened to one a day. And when
I came down to work for the ministry in that summer, I would
go back to the–we called it the tape duplication room. And I’d
go back there– GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: –and I would pull out a
series. I’d pull out a series before I would leave from work,
go home–I was living with Kenneth’s parents at the
time–go back to the house, listen to it, bring it back the
next morning, put it back. I was hungry. I was hungry for the
Word. GLORIA: We were, too. We were. GEORGE: And what happens
is, the more hungry you are, and the more you study, and the more
you apply, and the more you’re a doer of the Word, the more you
begin to learn how the kingdom of God operates. GLORIA: That’s
right. GEORGE: And the kingdom of God has an operation that
I’ve learned about. And this series came out of a series
that Kenneth E. Hagin taught on “Steps to Answered Prayer” that
Brother Copeland taught on “Seven Steps to Prayer That
Brings Results.” And I refreshed myself be–as–in preparation
for this time together, I refreshed myself by listening to
those again. I listened to them over and over again– GLORIA:
Yes, amen. GEORGE: –and got that back, got the momentum back
going about the faith steps that we are to take. GLORIA: Yeah.
GEORGE: And let’s go through the faith steps– GLORIA: Okay.
Let’s do it. GEORGE: –once again, one more time. GLORIA: I
love that. GEORGE: Step one, “Decide what you want from God.
Be specific about the things that you’re believing God for.”
Step two, “Locate scriptures that promise you what you want
from God.” GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: “Give the Word of God first
place and make it final authority in your life.” Step
three, “Get those scriptures firmly fixed in your heart.” You
meditate the Word until that Word becomes so real on the
inside that it completely wipes out any doubt and unbelief, but
the Word takes prominence in the forefront of your thinking and
your heart. Step four, “Ask God for what you want and believe
you receive when you pray.” When you ask God for what you want,
we learn to–we learn that we are to ask in the name of Jesus.
And then what we do is, at the end of that prayer, we say,
“Amen, so be it, I take it now.” GLORIA: “I believe I receive
it.” GEORGE: “I believe I receive it.” GLORIA: “I take
it now.” GEORGE: “And I take it now. It’s mine right now.” From
that moment forward– GLORIA: And then you–you have it. I
have it. GEORGE: Yeah, you have it. GLORIA: Well, I’m–I can’t
drive it. Well, you don’t–you might not can have it in your
garage yet, but you have it. GEORGE: That’s right. GLORIA:
And if you’ll stay with it, you’ll have it in your garage
for– GEORGE: Now, you just said something very important right
there, if you will stay with it. GLORIA: Yes, amen. GEORGE: That
is the key. From step five through 10, that is the key,
what Gloria just said, if you stay with it. If you treat this
thing casually, you’re not going to get anywhere because the
devil’s a fighter. And he is–his primary– GLORIA: Well,
what does the Bible say? Resist him and he’ll flee. GEORGE:
Resist the Devil. He will flee. GLORIA: If you don’t resist,
he’s going to hang around. GEORGE: He is. GLORIA: He’s
looking for a home. Don’t let him take yours. GEORGE: Mark 4
tells us that the sower sows the Word, and Satan comes to–
GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: –steal the Word. GLORIA: Talk you out
of it. GEORGE: Talk us out of it, steal the Word that is in
our hearts. So you really have to be aggressive about this.
GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: But when you say, “Amen,” you
must make a decision, “What am I going to do between now and
the time I can see that manifestation of what we prayed
for?” Well, that’s what steps five through ten are all about.
GLORIA: Mm-hmm. GEORGE: Step five, “We must refuse to allow
any doubt, fear–or fear to enter into our consciousness.”
Step six, “See yourself succeed and not fail.” GLORIA: Yes.
GEORGE: You are not failing. GLORIA: But the devil will come,
and he’ll say, “You’re not going to get that. You’re not going to
be able–you need–you’re never going to get a car.” GEORGE:
Mm-hmm. GLORIA: “You’re not going to do that.” GEORGE:
Mm-hmm, yeah. GLORIA: What is he most famous for? What’s the
devil most famous for? TOGETHER: Lying. GEORGE: Yeah, lying.
GLORIA: There’s no truth in him. GEORGE: So you know that
whatever he says is a lie. GLORIA: It’s a lie. GEORGE: So
you just take the opposite of what– GLORIA: That’s right.
GEORGE: –he’s saying to you. GLORIA: Exactly. GEORGE: In Step
seven, “We must give God continual praise and
thanksgiving.” “Oh, Lord, we thank You. I want to thank You
that I have that now. We receive it in Jesus’ name.” GLORIA: Yes,
amen. GEORGE: “And we praise You and honor You for it.” Step
eight, “Make every prayer a statement of faith.” GLORIA:
Mm-hmm. GEORGE: When you pray from that point onward, then
you–you just give God thanksgiving for it and say,
“Thank You, Lord, I received it then.” GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: “I
receive it now in Jesus’ name.” GLORIA: You don’t quit. GEORGE:
You don’t quit. Step eight–or rather, Step nine, “Testify to
what you believe.” Testify– GLORIA: Say it. GEORGE: Yeah,
say it. Say it. Testify. “Father–” GLORIA: “I believe I
receive.” GEORGE: “I have it. I have our new house. We have our
new car. I am healed in Jesus’ name.” You testify to that. And
finally, Step 10. Here we are Gloria. We’ve made it to Step
10. “Get on the giving end.” “Get on the giving end.” And
I’ve heard Brother Copeland say this over and over again about,
“You’ve got to get on the giving end.” GLORIA: “Give and it shall
be given unto you.” GEORGE: “–to you. Good measure–”
GLORIA: “–pressed down–” GEORGE: “–pressed down–”
TOGETHER: “–shaken together, running over–” GEORGE: “–shall
men given into your bosom.” GLORIA: Big return. GEORGE: Big
return. GLORIA: Big return. GEORGE: That’s good. Big return.
GLORIA: Glory to God. GEORGE: Big return. GLORIA: Running over
return. GEORGE: If you’re believing–if you are believing
for finances, sow into someone else’s life. GLORIA: That’s
a–that’s– GEORGE: If you need extra time, sow your time.
If you’re believing for debt freedom, sow towards debt
freedom in somebody else’s house. And that’s what Terri and
I did. GLORIA: Somebody else’s life. GEORGE: Life. We were–we
were believing for debt freedom in our own lives. So we were
looking around and asking the Lord, “Who can we sow into?
Who–whose mortgage can we help pay off?” We sowed seed towards
our own debt freedom, and we’ve been debt free now for–for
quite a number of years and live in a debt-free home. Bank can’t
take it. It belongs to us. And we sowed seed for that. We got
on the giving end. Even–even while we were renovating the
home that we are in now, and it was taking so long, we were
still listening to the Lord. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: “Where do
you want us to sow? Who do you want us to give to?” When you
would think, at a time like that, you’d want to just save–
GLORIA: Hoard it. GEORGE: Hoard it. GLORIA: “Hoard” is the word.
GEORGE: Hoard it. You want to hoard the money and keep it for
yourself. The Lord was saying, “Keep giving.” GLORIA: Keep
sowing. GEORGE: Keep sowing. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: And
there’s a momentum. GLORIA: The line is moving. GEORGE: The line
is moving. GLORIA: Hallelujah. GEORGE: I love it. The line is
moving. And there’s a momentum. There’s a momentum that builds
giving and receiving, giving and receiving, giving and receiving.
And it gets bigger. It’s like the big snowball that goes
down–the little snowball that goes down the mountain– GLORIA:
And it gets bigger. GEORGE: –and it just gets bigger and
bigger and bigger. And you get into a cycle, an amazing cycle
of continual sowing and reaping. And you can get into the place
where it’s–the sowing and the reaping is on top of each other.
It’s just– GLORIA: It says, “the sower,” what, “overtakes
the reaper”? GEORGE: Overtakes the reaper. GLORIA: Yeah.
GEORGE: Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah. And you get to the place where
you–it’s like you sow a seed in the ground. You throw it into
the ground and the harvest pops out. You throw that seed and
then here comes the harvest. GLORIA: It becomes a lifestyle.
GEORGE: It does become a lifestyle. And just before we
went on the air, you were talking about a scripture in
Proverbs 11. I want to add this into it. In Proverbs 11:24,
“There is he that scatters, and yet increases; and there is he
that withholds more than is meet, but that tends to
poverty.” Withholding– GLORIA: Don’t want to do that. GEORGE:
–tends to poverty. So withholding during a time
between the time of the “Amen” and “There it is” –withholding
will impede and stop the receiving. And it says right
here, “He that scatters will increase.” GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE:
“But he that withholds, that tends to poverty. The liberal
soul shall be made fat,” or shall prosper. That’s what the
word “fat” there is, is “prosper.” GLORIA: Increase.
GEORGE: “And he that waters shall be watered himself.”
GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: And Gloria made a statement. She
made a–we have a Gloria-ism that just came a few moments ago
before we came on the air. Listen to this: “If you want to
be in on the receiving end, get in on the giving end.” GLORIA:
That’s it. GEORGE: And that’s it right there. That’s it right
there. If you want to get in on the receiving end, then you’re
going to have to get in on the giving end. If you’re believing
God right now for finances, don’t stop tithing. GLORIA: Oh,
no. GEORGE: Don’t stop– GLORIA: Or sowing. GEORGE: –tithing.
GLORIA: Don’t stop. GEORGE: Don’t stop sowing. Don’t stop
tithing. I’ll tell you, Gloria, that the–the tithing revelation
is increasing more and more in our lives. Terri and I, we
had–ha–we have been believing for the promises of the tither.
And one of the promises that God– GLORIA: They’re awesome.
GEORGE: God rebukes the devourer. GLORIA: That’s right.
GEORGE: The windows of heaven are opened over us. GLORIA:
There is great increase in tithing. GEORGE: And God rebukes
the devourer. And we were–we faced some things in the house
here recently that we’ve had to get fixed. There was a mold
issue from rain, and we had to get that fixed, and they go
through all of the stuff that you have to go through to
get the– GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: –you know, to read–read the
mold and then get the mold out and then rebuild. So we’re
having to rebuild a section of the house. Then, the other day,
Terri–Terri put some–she took squash, cut it in half and put
it in the microwave because we were going to have that for–for
dinner. She does the squash and then she puts–anyway. So she
put it in there, and she pressed the button. But–and the clock
was going and–and she took it out, but nothing had happened.
Well, she put it back in again, and what happened was the clock
is running, but–but the actual microwave wasn’t working. And
she slapped that thing and she said, “I claim tither’s rights.”
GLORIA: (Laughs) GEORGE: “The devil is rebuked. The
dour–devourer is rebuked.” GLORIA: The devourer. GEORGE:
“He cannot steal our stuff.” And for a few moments there, she
was–I was standing there watching this and going, Yeah,
yeah, we are tithers. We are tithers.” Well, the point being
is, don’t stop tithing in the midst of standing in faith.
GLORIA: No. GEORGE: In the midst of believing God for whatever
you’re believing God right now, and you go down through these
steps–when we talk about getting– GLORIA: You know,
that’s like–that’s like being in a fight– GEORGE: Mm-hmm.
GLORIA: –and having one hand tied behind your back. GEORGE:
Well, yeah. GLORIA: Because now you’re– GEORGE: Yeah. GLORIA:
–under a curse, and you’re trying to increase, but you’re
not going to sow, you’re not going to tithe. GEORGE: Hm-mm.
Hm-mm. That doesn’t work. GLORIA: It just doesn’t work.
GEORGE: That doesn’t work. So we have to–we have to get in on
the giving end. GLORIA: Yes. GEORGE: And one of the things
that Brother Copeland talks about in his series on “Seven
Steps to Prayer That Brings Results,” he said, “Get involved
in helping somebody else.” Now, we all know Brother Copeland
around here, and the man is a breathtaking giver. GLORIA: He
is a breathtaking giver. GEORGE: We are–we are just all taken
by what he does in his giving. GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: He
called me this morning, this morning before he left town.
He’s got a project going, and he didn’t–he didn’t exactly ask me
for money because the church–the church has its own
benevolent account. We run–we run–we are together here, but
yet John–you, John, and Kenneth, have allowed us to
operate on our own finances. GLORIA: Mm-hmm. GEORGE: Well, we
have our own benevolent fund. We have our own finances. So
Brother Copeland calls me this morning. He’s talking to me
about this project. And he–I know him well enough. He doesn’t
have to ask me. He doesn’t even have to say it. I know. I know
what he’s saying. And I said to him, “Well, Kenneth, well, let
me check our benevolent fund and see what we can do.” “Well,
okay, George. That’ll be fine with me.” Well, he–he didn’t
exactly call me to–he’s just wanting to give. He’s just
wanting to give. And he wanted me to get in on the giving right
along with him. And I–it’s a privilege and an honor to be
able to do something with the man of God where this is
concerned. But his attitude, he is a giver. GLORIA: You should
be married to him. GEORGE: (Laughs) GLORIA: Sometimes you
wonder is he going to give me away? No, I’m kidding. He
never–I never wonder that. I was making that up. GEORGE:
Well, he’s–he–well, you know, you’ve seen it. GLORIA: But he
is a–he’s a–I’m trying to think–victorious giver. GEORGE:
He’s a victorious– GLORIA: Sower. GEORGE:
–take-your-breath giver. Sower. He really is. You know,
he’ll–sometimes they’ll call me from the office or Jan’ll talk
to me and say, “Now, Brother Copeland just gave such and such
and such and such.” And we all just sit there and go, “That’s
Kenneth Copeland.” Well, he–he’s practicing because he,
too, has his faith out there for some things. GLORIA: Sure.
GEORGE: We’re believing God for that Citation X and everything
around it that it takes; pilots, fuel, the maintenance, the–the
annuals, everything. And it’s–that’s–that’s a chunk of
money– GLORIA: Mm-hmm. GEORGE: –to be able to do that. Well,
but he’s using his faith,, and he’s constantly sowing. He’s
constantly sending seed out there and constantly harvesting.
And I was thinking about the example here of the Samaritan,
the good Samaritan, and he–that man got beat up, left on the
side of the road, and that good Samaritan came along. And when
he saw him, he felt compassion towards him, and he–basically,
what he did–it says–and I was reading this. He said, “He
soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them.
He put his on his–He put the man on his own donkey, took him
to an inn where he took care of him.” What a giver. GLORIA:
Isn’t that something? GEORGE: What a giver. GLORIA: He had a
heart for somebody. GEORGE: He really did. And then it says,
“The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins,
telling him, Take care of this man. If the bill runs higher
than this, I’ll pay you the next time that I’m here.” GLORIA:
Yeah. GEORGE: What a giver. And that’s–that’s what we are
supposed to do. That what we–if we are truly believing God for
things in our lives, we need to get in on the giving end. We
need to get in on the sowing end, because when we do sow,
we will reap harvest. GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: Look at
your third page, Gloria. And as we finish up this teaching, I’ll
just share a couple of things with you. GLORIA: My third page.
GEORGE: Yeah, second page, I’m sorry. GLORIA: Okay. GEORGE:
Second page. I keep saying, “third page,” but it’s your
second page. GLORIA: You haven’t done that one yet. GEORGE: I
know. I haven’t done that one. That’s next time. Just a couple
of things that I wanted to leave you with in terms of the whole
idea of giving, get on the giving end. First of all,
there’s a quote that I use in church all the time. “Our
motivation for accumulation is distribution.” That’s what–
GLORIA: That’s good. GEORGE: –it’s all about. GLORIA: That’s
good. GEORGE: That’s what it’s all about. And I quote here
Brother Copeland, “True prosperity is the ability to use
the power of God to meet the needs of mankind in every realm
of life; spirit, soul, body, financially, socially.” We
are–we prosper so that we can help others to prosper. GLORIA:
That’s right. GEORGE: Then the second one here, “True
prosperity is walking with God to be able and equipped to do
for others–” This is the second one here. GLORIA: Are you sure
I–are you sure I’ve got that? GEORGE: You’ve got that one.
“True prosperity is walking with God to be able and equipped to
do for others whatever He needs done, wherever He needs it done,
and whatever He needs it done with.” That’s what true
prosperity is. That’s what it’s about. In Philippians 2:4, “Look
not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things
of others.” In Galatians 6:10 in the Knox translation, “Let us
practice generosity to all while the opportunity is ours, and
above all, to those who are one family with us in the household
of faith.” GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: Now, we were–we were
believing God for the Citation X. This was a number of years
ago. And we were at a ministers conference. We have a yearly
ministers conference, and we were having that ministers
conference here. And I remember the night that Creflo Dollar got
up in front of everybody, and he said, “We are–we, Taffy and I,
the church, are emptying out the church savings account in order
to sow it into the Citation that Brother Copeland is believing
for.” GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: That’s–that really is
something. That really touched my heart that Creflo could have
used that money– GLORIA: Sure. GEORGE: –for other things. I’m
sure he could have been spending money. And it was a lot. It
wasn’t–it wasn’t a small amount of money. GLORIA: It was a lot.
GEORGE: It was a major, major– GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE:
–sum of money. GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: He was believing
God for an airplane. So he got involved in the giving end. And
the giving is all part of the process of faith in getting your
prayers answered. That’s a major thing. It is–when you say–when
you say, “I receive this in Jesus’ name, I’m–amen, I take
it now, so be it,” then from that point on, we begin to
operate in the stand of faith. GLORIA: That goes back to
Proverbs 12–11, “There is seed that scattereth yet increases.”
GEORGE: “Yet increases.” GLORIA: “And there is he that
withholdeth– GEORGE: Yep. GLORIA: “–more than is meet–”
In other words, he’s withholding too much. GEORGE: Too much.
GLORIA: “–but it tendeth to poverty.” GEORGE: Yeah. That’s
the key. GLORIA: That’s the scripture. That’s Proverbs
11:24. GEORGE: Mm-hmm. GLORIA: Yeah. GEORGE: So, Gloria, we
have been talking all this time about those faith steps. And I
remember one time, we were in a meeting. This was 1970–I was
married, so ’77 at that time. We were in Pennsylvania. We had a
meeting in Pittsburgh. Went up there with Brother Copeland, and
I remember–we were in a hotel ballroom in those days. And–and
he had a healing service that night. And there was a young man
that had braces on his legs, and he had crutches that he was
having to walk with. And that night, Brother Copeland was
laying hands on the sick. And he got to this man, he laid hands
on him, and he began–Kenneth began to operate in the working
of miracles. And he kept saying to that young man, “Every step
is a step of faith. Every step is a step of faith.” And he took
one step and then barely another step. And Brother Copeland just
kept say, he goes, “Every step is a step of faith.” And he kept
doing it. And all of a sudden, the crutches come down, he took
those leg braces off– GLORIA: I was thinking he had braces.
GEORGE: –and he began to run. And Brother Cope– GLORIA: Hoo!
GEORGE: He was running–and I was take–I was taking pictures
at the time, and I took a picture. We have a picture of
it, somewhere. I think I put it in the magazine. And he’s
running up and down the aisles. And Brother Copeland is
shouting, “Every step is a step of faith.” And he left there
completely healed. GLORIA: Praise God. GEORGE: I’m telling
you today, every step is a step of faith. GLORIA: Yeah. That’s
right. GEORGE: Don’t get bogged down. Don’t get worried. Don’t
get concerned. GLORIA: That’s right. GEORGE: You take these 10
steps that Gloria and I have taught you over the last 10
days, apply them. Be a doer of the Word of God. And Father, we
thank You. GLORIA: Thank you, Lord, for the blessing. GEORGE:
We praise You right now. We stand in agreement with everyone
for what they are standing and believing for. GLORIA: Yes.
Praise God. GEORGE: Lord, we are walking by faith and not by
sight. We have it now. GLORIA: We have it. GEORGE: And we take
the necessary steps– GLORIA: We believe we receive it. GEORGE:
–in order to see the fruition of it– GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: –and the manifestation of what we’re believing for.

whole imagination. Because He can do exceeding abundantly

scripture that we use a lot during these offering days is
Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: Whatsoever a
man sows–” TOGETHER: “–that shall he–“– GLORIA: “–reap.”
GEORGE: –“also reap.” So often we look at that sort of in the
negative vein. You know, “God is not mocked. Whatever you sow,
you’re going to reap.” But that also applies to the positive end
of it. GLORIA: That leaves it up to you. GEORGE: Yeah, it leaves
it up to us. Whatever you sow. And we have so many partners
that sow into this ministry all the time. Gloria, they do it
every month. GLORIA: I know. They’re faithful. GEORGE: And
because of them, we are able to be on worldwide television.
We’re on Dish TV. We’re on Daystar, TBN. We’re on all these
television outlets, Roku. We’re on Apple TV. GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: I mean, people are watching us on their telephones.
Did you ever think, in 1967, that people would be watching
you on a telephone? GLORIA: Huh-uh. GEORGE: Well, these
partners have been so gracious to us. GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: And you know, Terri and I are partners with you, too. We
are faithful partners with you. GLORIA: Praise God. Thank
you, Pastor. GEORGE: It is a privilege and an honor. And
we take the increase by association. GLORIA: Praise God.
GEORGE: We are associated in this–in this ministry because
of our sowing into it. So, Gloria, why don’t you–would you
pray over the partners? GLORIA: Yes. Father, I pray over the
partners today and over all the people that are participating–
GEORGE: Oh, thank You, Jesus. GLORIA: –in the offering. Lord,
we believe You at this time that greater outpouring of finances–
GEORGE: Hallelujah. GEORGE: –would be manifested all
through the body of Christ. GEORGE: That’s right. GLORIA:
That as we sow, we receive a quick harvest in Jesus’ name.
GEORGE: Quick harvest. Thank You, Lord. GLORIA: And I
pray for every person– GEORGE: Praise You, Jesus. GLORIA: —
participating in this offering today. GEORGE: Thank You.
GLORIA: You be blessed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
GEORGE: In the name of Jesus. GLORIA: Increase. When you sow,
church, pray, release your faith– GEORGE: Yes. GLORIA:

stronger and stronger. So this is Gloria Copeland,
Pastor George Pearsons, reminding you… TOGETHER:
That Jesus is Lord! >> Announcer: FROM A RECENT VISIT TO OUR NATION’S CAPITAL, GARY AND DRENDA WANNA SHARE AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR, SPEAKER, AND FOUNDER OF REVIVAL MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE. >> SO THE I.R.S. POLICES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO GET THE MONEY TO PAY BACK THE FEDERAL RESERVE BECAUSE BEFORE THAT, WE NEVER EVEN HAD TAXATION, AND YET WE WERE THE RICHEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. >> YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE TIMES AND PREPARED FOR WHAT IS TO COME. LET’S GET A FINANCIAL UPDATE NOW, ON FIXING THE MONEY THING. >> I’M GARY KEESEE. FOR NINE YEARS, I HAD DEBT I COULDN’T PAY, WHICH BROUGHT ON PANIC ATTACKS, ANTIDEPRESSANTS, UNTIL THE KINGDOM OF GOD DRASTICALLY CHANGED MY LIFE. AND I WANNA HELP YOU FIX THE MONEY THING. >> AMERICA’S FINANCIAL COACH, GARY KEESEE, WANTS TO MENTOR YOU IN THE KINGDOM PRINCIPLES THAT WILL SET YOU FREE. >> IF YOU PUT GOD’S PRINCIPLES IN PLACE, YOU WILL PROSPER. >> THIS IS GARY KEESEE, FIXING THE MONEY THING. >> I’M HERE IN WASHINGTON, DC, THAT’S THE SEAT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THAT’S WHERE ALL THE DECISIONS ARE MADE. EVERY DECISION MADE HERE, OF COURSE, AFFECTS THE COUNTRY, AFFECTS YOU, AFFECTS ALL THE CITIZENS. WE RAN INTO A GOOD FRIEND OF OURS AT THE TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL. HE HAS A BRAND-NEW BOOK OUT AND WE SPENT SOME TIME WITH HIM TALKING ABOUT IT. IT WAS AN AMAZING BOOK ABOUT MONEY, GOVERNMENT, CORRUPTION, AND POWER. DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE MET US FOR A FEW MOMENTS. LET’S TAKE A LISTEN TO THAT. >> WE ARE VERY, VERY PLEASED AND HONORED TO HAVE WITH US TODAY, A SCHOLAR, AN EVANGELIST, WHO’S TRAVELED THE WORLD PREACHING THE GOSPEL, BUT YOUR PREACHING A GOSPEL NOW ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE, ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS OF TRUTH COMING OUT CONCERNING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. YOUR BOOK: “THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM”, RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE, WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM. >> THANK YOU. >> AND YOU’VE CAUGHT MY ATTENTION, YOU’RE PREACHING A DIFFERENT, WELL, IT’S NOT A DIFFERENT GOSPEL, BUT YOU’RE PREACHING A DIFFERENT MESSAGE THAN I’VE EVER HEARD YOU PREACH. IN DETAIL WITH ALL KINDS OF EXAMPLES AT WHAT’S HAPPENING TO AMERICA IN THIS NEW BOOK, WHICH IS COMING OUT, “THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM”, FOLLOW THE MONEY IS WHAT YOU’RE CALLING IT. IT’S WHAT WE DO, RIGHT? FOLLOW THE MONEY TELLS US WHAT’S HAPPENING. >> IT’LL TELL YOU EVERYTHING. >> SO, TELLS US — THIS BOOK. TELL ME ABOUT THE BOOK. WHAT IS IT ABOUT? >> WELL, ACTUALLY IT’S A COLLABORATION BETWEEN MYSELF AND MY CO-AUTHOR, PAUL WILLIAMS, DR. PAUL WILLIAMS. WHEN I CAME, I STARTED TEACHING ON THIS PROBABLY 10 YEARS AGO AND TO OUR CHURCH AND JUST HELPING THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. BUT IN 2014, I CAME TO WASHINGTON, DC. WE RENTED CONSTITUTION HALL FOR 14 NIGHTS AND I EXPOSED A LOT OF THE STUFF THAT WAS TAKING PLACE. AFTER ONE OF THE SESSIONS, DR. WILLIAMS CAME TO ME. HE SAID, “LISTEN, I’M A SCRIBE. THAT’S ALL I DO. I RESEARCH AND SCRIBE.” HE SAID, “I NEED TO HELP YOU. WE NEED TO PUT THIS THING DOWN INTO PAPER, SO PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY READ IT.” SO, HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT THE TITLE THAT, I SAID THAT IT’S GONNA BE CALLED “THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM”, THAT’S THE CONSTITUTION THERE WITH THE FLAG AND THE SWORD GOING THROUGH WITH THE BLOOD BECAUSE — AND THAT WAS THE FIRST DESIGN. WE NEVER EVEN CHANGED IT. >> OH, YEAH, THAT’S AWESOME. IT’S GOOD. I SEE IT. >> SO, BASICALLY, HERE’S THE PROBLEM. I COME FROM SOUTH AFRICA. SO, WHEN I LEFT SOUTH AFRICA, I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG. BECAUSE YOU’RE JUST FED THIS LINE OF INFORMATION THAT YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE, THIS IS JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE. BUT WHEN I BEGAN TO STUDY IT WHEN I GOT HERE, I FOUND OUT THAT CECIL JOHN RHODES HAD BEEN USED ALONG WITH OTHERS THAT HAD BEEN FUNDED BY THE ROTHSCHILD TO SECURE THE DIAMOND FIELD FOR DE BEERS AND THE GOLD FIELD FOR ANGLO AMERICAN. SO, EVEN TODAY, SOUTH AFRICANS DON’T KNOW THEIR DIAMONDS OR THEIR GOLD. IT’S ALL OWNED BY THESE TWO CORPORATIONS. WHICH THE WHOLE PLIGHT OF AFRICA IS ABOUT PLUNDERING NATURAL RESOURCES. >> YEAH, YEA. >> I MEAN, EVEN THE CONGO RIGHT NOW SITS ON 24 TRILLION, JUST UNDER CONGO, IN THE GROUND. YET, THE PEOPLE ARE IN TOTAL ABJECT POVERTY. >> RIGHT. >> YET THE MINING COMPANIES ARE SUCKING THIS STUFF OUT. EVEN ZIMBABWE THAT DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A CURRENCY, THE PLANES ARE FLYING OUT CARRYING THE DIAMONDS. SO, YOU KNOW, IT’S ABOUT A FEW PEOPLE RUNNING THE PLANET. BUT BEHIND ALL OF THAT WHEN WE GET TO LOOK AT IT, YOU BEGIN TO SEE THAT THE WORLD IS ACTUALLY RUN BY THE PRIVATE CENTRAL BANKS OF THE WORLD AND SO, WHEN CECIL JOHN RHODES AND YOU’VE HEARD OF THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP, PEOPLE GET A RHODES SCHOLARSHIP, IT’S BECAUSE YOU’RE PART OF THIS SPECIAL CLUB AND HE WAS THE ONE THAT SAID WE CAN ACTUALLY GET AMERICA BACK IF WE FOLLOW THESE PRINCIPLES. IT WAS A WHOLE ANGLO-SAXON THING, YOU KNOW WHERE ENGLAND WAS RULING THE BRAVES. I MEAN, THERE WASN’T A PLACE YOU COULDN’T GO WHERE THE UNION JACK WASN’T FLYING IN AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND. >> NEVER SET ON THE EMPIRE. >> SURE. AND SO ALL OF THIS WAS TRUE THAT WHILE THEY CAME OVER HERE AND CONVERTED CARNEGIE. THEY CONVERTED CARNEGIE AND WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY STARTED, HE BEGAN TO FUND THROUGH THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION, ACTUALLY IT BECAME THE CHARTER FOR THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS, WHICH NOW IS THE UNITED NATIONS, TODAY, AND A SOUTH AFRICAN ACTUALLY WROTE THE CHARTER FOR THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS, A GUY CALLED JAN SMUTS, WHO WAS ACTUALLY CLOSE TO WINSTON CHURCHILL AND IF SOMETHING HAD HAPPENED TO CHURCHILL, SMUTS, A SOUTH AFRICAN AFRICANA WOULD HAVE BEEN PRIME MINISTER OF ENGLAND. THERE’S A STATUE OF HIM IN LONDON. HE RODE DOWN THE MALL WITH THE QUEEN. >> AWESOME, YEAH. >> YEAH, SO ANYWAY, SO, WHICH IS NOT GREAT FOR ME BECAUSE THEY’VE CHOSEN A TRAITOR, THE HEIGHT — THESE PEOPLE THE HIGHEST LEVEL SELL THEIR COUNTRIES OUT. SO, I KNOW THERE’S SO MUCH INFORMATION IN HERE, BUT WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY FOUND WOODROW WILSON, WHO WAS THE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT AND BASICALLY CONSCRIPTED HIM THAT HE WOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THEN HE WAS THE ONE THAT SIGNED IN THE BILL ON THE 23RD OF DECEMBER 1913, THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK AND THE IRS ACT, WHICH BOTH ARE INDEPENDENT AGENCIES. SO, THE IRS POLICES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO GET THE MONEY TO PAY BACK THE FEDERAL RESERVE BECAUSE BEFORE THAT, WE NEVER EVEN HAD TAXATION, AND YET WE WERE THE RICHEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. NOW, IF YOU KNOW ANYBODY LIKE ANDREW JACKSON DEFEATED THE CENTRAL BANK. THEY TRIED TO KILL HIM. >> RIGHT. >> AND ANYONE THAT CAME ALONG THAT WAS AGAINST CENTRAL BANKS, THEY WANTED TO KILL. >> J.F.K. >> THEY MURDERED HIM. AND AS YOU KNOW, OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT HAS NOT RELEASED THE FULL NAMES BECAUSE THEY WOULD HAVE TO ARREST CERTAIN PEOPLE RIGHT NOW THAT ARE STILL ALIVE. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE WAITING ‘TIL 2022 — ‘CAUSE THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO PICK ‘EM UP AND PUT ‘EM IN GUANTANAMO BECAUSE THIS THING, THE CORRUPTION IS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS. >> AND IT’S INTERNATIONAL. >> IT’S TOTALLY, IT’S A GLOBAL CABAL AND AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS, THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WORSHIPPED LUCIFER. >> SO, YOU’RE SAYING THAT THE KILLING, THE CHANGING OF AMERICA’S WEALTH, THE CHANGES IN THE COUNTRY, IS ALL ABOUT MOVING MONEY, ALL ABOUT THE MONEY THAT’S SOME — A LIMITED NUMBER OF PEOPLE WERE IN CONTROL OF AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. >> ALL THE WAY BACK TO OUR INDEPENDENCE. ONCE WE BECAME AN INDEPENDENT NATION, THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, THERE WAS A PLOT AND A MOVE TO TAKE BACK AMERICA BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY AND CONTROLLING THE PEOPLE. >> THEY WERE UPSET. THEY HAD LOST US. OUR FLAG WAS FLYING, BUT — >> OKAY, OKAY. >> — SHOULDN’T EVEN BE HERE. THERE’S NO WAYS THAT WE SHOULD HAVE DEFEATED THE BRITISH MONARCHY. BUT THE HAND OF GOD WAS ON THIS LAND. SO THEN, SO NOW COMES THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND YOU SEE WHAT TOOK PLACE. SO, THEN THE FED BAILED OUT, WHICH WE TALK ABOUT IN THE BOOK, BAILED OUT THE WORLD IN 1934, RIGHT AFTER THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THE REST OF THE COUNTRIES WERE CONCERNED THAT THE DEPRESSION WOULD COME THERE. AND SO, THEY SAID, “NO, NO, DON’T WORRY.” THEY PRINTED FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS, PUT THEM IN BOXES AND PUT THEM IN ALL THE CENTRAL BANKS OF THE WORLD. AND THESE INSTRUMENTS WERE 34-YEAR NOTES PAYABLE AT 4% INTEREST DUE IN 1967. >> OKAY. I GOTTA STOP THERE BECAUSE I’VE NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE AND I WANNA MAKE SURE WE UNDERSTAND. SO, AT THE END OF THE DEPRESSION, TO HELP THE WORLD COME OUT OF THIS, WE SENT TO OTHER CENTRAL BANKS, NOT HERE IN THE US. >> NO. >> OTHER NATIONS SENT BOXES. >> INSTRUMENTS. >> INSTRUMENTS OF WHAT? CURRENCY, OR? >> CURRENCY AT THAT TIME BECAUSE — AND NOW EVERYTHING’S DONE ELECTRONICALLY. >> YEAH. >> OBLIVIOUS WITH DIGITAL STUFF AND THEY’RE PLAYING AROUND. NOW, THEY’RE UPSET ABOUT CRYPTOS COMING ON ‘CAUSE THEY CAN’T STOP THAT BECAUSE OF BLOCK-CHAIN. >> YEAH. >> THAT’S WHY THEY’RE TRYING TO COLLAPSE THE CRYPTO CURRENCY AT THIS JUNCTURE. BUT, SO, THEN THEY PUT THAT IN ALL THE CENTRAL BANKS AND SAID, “PRINT YOUR MONEY BACKED BY THE DOLLAR.” THAT’S WHY THE DOLLAR BECAME THE CURRENCY OF THE WORLD AND THAT’S WHY SWITZERLAND WAS NEUTRAL DURING THE WAR AND NOBODY TOUCHED SWITZERLAND. THEY FOUGHT AROUND SWITZERLAND. THEY NEVER TOUCHED SWITZERLAND BECAUSE SWITZERLAND WAS FUNDING BOTH SIDES. YOU SEE? >> THE MIDDLE MAN. >> YEAH, BECAUSE THEIR BANKERS MAKE MONEY OFF OF WAR. THEY DON’T MAKE MONEY OFF OF PEACE. BECAUSE IF A COUNTRY — THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT YOU SHALL LEND TO MANY NATIONS, SHALL NO BORROW. WELL, AND NO NATION’S GONNA BORROW IF IT’S ALREADY OUT OF DEBT. THEN THERE’S NO PROBLEM. BUT IF YOU HAVE A WAR, THEN YOU HAVE TO BUY TANKS AND ARMAMENTS AND ALL THIS — >> TRUE, THAT’S GOOD. >> SO THEN THE BANKERS ACTUALLY TRAINED THE DISSIDENCE TO SEND THEM IN LATER TO CAUSE THE PROBLEMS SO NOW SUDDENLY A NATION THAT HAD TOTAL PEACE, NOW IS HAVING GREAT CONFLICT. >> AND WE STILL SEE THAT TODAY. >> IT’S HAPPENING. >> THROUGH PROTESTS AND MOVEMENTS THAT ARE PAID FOR BY OUTSIDE ORGANIZATIONS. >> IT’S TAKING PLACE RIGHT IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW. THEY’RE TRYING TO CAUSE THAT TO COME TO PASS. BUT, I MEAN, THE ONLY RESTRAINING FORCE IS THE CHURCH, THE BODY OF CHRIST. YOU KNOW, BECAUSE AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS PEOPLE, THEY’RE LOVE OF MONEY, WHICH THE BIBLE SAYS IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL IS THAT WHICH IS CORRUPTED IN EVERY AREA OF OUR SOCIETY FROM OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM TO OUR MEDICAL, AGRICULTURE. EVEN OUR JUDGES, OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM WITH JUDGES LEGISLATING FROM THE BENCHES. IT’S THE CRAZIEST THING NOW. SO, WE NEED A REFORMATION, NOT A REVOLUTION WITH THE GOVERNMENT, BUT WE NEED A REFORMATION, MUCH LIKE WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE REFORMATION TOOK PLACE 500 YEARS AGO. >> ARE THE ELECTIONS BOUGHT OFF? ARE THEY RIGGED? >> WELL, I THINK THIS LAST ONE DIDN’T TURN OUT THE WAY THEY WANTED TO. >> THAT’S OBVIOUS. >> — AND HERE’S THE THING. YOU KNOW, MAYBE… OF COURSE, YOUR AUDIENCE. I MEAN, I JUST TALK THE WAY I TALK. SO, YOU CAN, YOU CAN APOLOGIZE LATER. >> THEY’RE ON BOARD. >> HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND, THE BUSHES AND THE CLINTONS ARE ACTUALLY FRIENDS. THEY’RE HOUSEHOLD FRIENDS. OKAY, SO THAT’S THE SCAM. AND EVEN WHEN MANDELA DIED, NELSON MANDELA DIED, AIR FORCE ONE WENT TO SOUTH AFRICA. ON BOARD AIR FORCE: BUSHES, CLINTONS, AND THE OBAMAS AND THEY’RE ALL SITTING AROUND LAUGHING. BUSH IS SHOWING HIS PAINTINGS, HILLARY’S LAUGHING — THE WHOLE THING’S A SCAM ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. BOTH PARTIES ARE ACTUALLY WORKING FOR THE SAME PEOPLE. SO, THEY’RE TWO HEADS OF THE SAME SNAKE. THAT’S WHY THE CURRENT, OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT TRUMP CAME ALONG AND THEY COULDN’T STOP HIM. THEY COULD NOT STOP HIM. EVEN WITH 2 BILLION DOLLARS AND AN ARRAY OF ALL THE MEDIA AND EVERYTHING COULDN’T STOP HIM. BECAUSE I BELIEVE GOD HEARD THAT CRY OF THE CHURCH TO SAY, “GIVE US A LAST-MINUTE REPRIEVE, WHICH IS WHAT WE’VE BEEN PRAYING… >> TIME. >> …FOR. SO, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN SEE NOW THE FEDS PLAYING WITH THE INTEREST RATES, TRYING TO STOP CERTAIN THINGS FROM HAPPENING. BUT IN ESSENCE, YOU AND I KNOW, THEY CAN COLLAPSE THE DOLLAR TOMORROW. THEY CAN COLLAPSE WALL STREET, WHICH I WAS CONCERNED WHEN I HEARD THE PRESIDENT TALK ABOUT THE DOW JONES IS DOING GREAT. I WANNA SAY, “NO, MR. PRESIDENT, DO NOT TALK ABOUT THAT.” BECAUSE IT’S ALL NUMBERS. THIS IS JUST FLUFF AND NUMBERS. AND IT’S FAKE. SO, I REMEMBER QUANTITATIVE EASING, 85 BILLION DOLLARS A MONTH. YOU KNOW WHERE THAT WAS GOING? NOT — >> TO THE BANKS, WASN’T IT? >> IT WAS GETTING SUCKED THROUGH WALL STREET. >> RIGHT. >> IT WAS BEING SUCKED THROUGH WALL STREET TO OFF-SHORE BANKING CABAL. AND SO EVEN NOW, THERE’S ONLY — WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY’RE DOING WITH THAT NOW, WHICH I THINK THEY’RE USING THAT TO TRY TO DESTROY BITCOIN AND A COUPLE OTHER BANKS, BUT THE CORRUPTION IS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS AND THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND. THEY THINK THIS IS LIKE A LOW CRIMINAL, LIKE, I SAID IT EVEN IN THE FRONT OF THE BOOK, BERNIE MADOFF, WHICH WAS REPORTED TO BE THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY, THE CRIME OF ALL CRIMES. NO, NO, THE CRIME OF ALL CRIMES IS PRIVATE CENTRAL BANKS. THEY CAN CREATE MONEY FROM NOTHING AND THEN CHARGE YOU AND I INTEREST ON IT. THIS IS THE ATROCITY AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS. AND THEY CARE NOTHING FOR HUMANITY. THERE’S NO REASON FOR GLOBAL POVERTY. THERE’S NO REASON FOR ANY OF THE STUFF. IT’S ALL RECREATED SO THAT A COUPLE PEOPLE, THEY CARE NOTHING FOR PEOPLE, THE WICKEDNESS IS BEYOND IMAGINATION AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO PULL BACK THE CURTAINS, YOU BEGIN TO SEE THAT AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS, IT’S THE LUCIFERIAN STRUCTURE OF THE GLOBE. AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS, THEY WORSHIP LUCIFER AND THEY’VE ALREADY SOLD THEIR SOUL. SO, IN OTHER WORDS, JUST LIKE THE DEVIL CAME TO JESUS, TOOK HIM TO THE HIGHER MOUNTAIN AND SAID, “I’LL GIVE YOU ALL THESE KINGDOMS,” HE’S VISITED THEM, AND THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOUL TO THE DEVIL. >> MORE WITH OUR GUEST, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE AFTER THIS. >> THE STOCK MARKET IS UP, UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOWN, WHERE’S INFLATION? IT’S TIME FOR AN UPDATE. >> SO, WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AMERICA? NO ONE HAS MONEY, THE ONLY MONEY THEY HAVE IS A CREDIT CARD. THEY DON’T HAVE MONEY. >> TODAY, FROM FAITH LIFE MINISTRIES, A FINANCIAL UPDATE YOU’LL WANNA HEAR, AND RESOURCES YOU NEED TO LIVE A FULL AND PROSPEROUS LIFE. >> MOST PEOPLE ARE LOSING A LOT OF MONEY WITHOUT KNOWING IT.

CALL, WRITE, OR LOG ON AND GET TODAY’S FINANCIAL UPDATE RESOURCES NOW. ♪ ♪ >> LET’S RETURN TO OUR NATION’S CAPITAL FOR MORE FROM OUR VERY SPECIAL GUEST, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE, NOW ON FIXING THE MONEY THING. >> NOW, HERE’S THE THING, THERE’S ONLY 7% OF CASH IN CIRCULATION IN AMERICA. >> THAT’S WHAT I’VE HEARD. >> THERE’S 4% IN ENGLAND. THAT MEANS IF EVERY AMERICAN GOES TO THE BANK TOMORROW AND SAYS, “I’D LIKE MY MONEY.” THEY DON’T HAVE IT. AND EVEN NOW, YOU ARE LIMITED ON MONEY YOU CAN CARRY INTERNATIONALLY, $10,000. EVERYTHING IS DIGITAL. THEY WANT YOU TO STAY IN THEIR PLACE. SO, IF YOU WENT TO THE BANKS TOMORROW AND SAID, “I WANT $50,000 CASH.” THEY’D SAY, “FOR WHAT?” >> WE’VE DONE THAT AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO. >> 5,000, THEY SAY… WE DON’T HAVE IT. >> IT’LL TAKE THREE DAYS. >> $5,000.00, THEY DIDN’T HAVE IN OUR BANK. >> BUT THEN IF YOU GET IN YOUR CAR AND DRIVE DOWN THE ROAD AND THEY PULL YOU OVER, THEY CAN CONFISCATE THE CASH ‘TIL YOU PROVE WHERE IT’S FROM. SO, THE PROBLEM THAT YOU’RE DEALING WITH IS THAT THE NOOSE IS GETTING TIGHTER AND TIGHTER. SO, IF THE DOLLAR COLLAPSES, WHICH IS MY CONCERN. THERE WERE THREE THINGS THAT WAS MY BIGGEST CONCERN FROM THE 2014 PERIOD WAS THE COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR, THE COLLAPSE OF WALL STREET, WHICH THEY CAN DO ON PURPOSE OR AN E.M.P. ATTACK ON AMERICA, WHICH WOULD BLOW OUT THE GRID AND KNOCK ALL THE COMPUTERS BACK — WE’D BE OUT OF COMMISSION FOR 18 MONTHS — YOU HAVE PEOPLE SAY, “WELL, THAT’S AN ALARMIST THING.” BUT CONGRESS HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT. I KNOW THE TALKING POINTS. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WARNING PEOPLE, THE VULNERABILITIES OF AMERICA WHERE WE ARE VULNERABLE. >> RIGHT. >> SO, THOMAS JEFFERSON SAID IN 1802, THE AMERICAN WILL EVER ALLOW THE PRIVATE BANKS TO CONTROL THE ISSUE OF THEIR CURRENCY, FIRST BY INFLATION AND THEN BY DEFLATION. THE BANKS AND THE COMPANIES THAT WILL SPRING UP AROUND THEM WILL DEPRIVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OF THEIR PROPERTY ‘TIL THEY WAKE UP HOMELESS ON A CONTINENT THEIR FATHERS CONQUERED. >> ON THAT POINT. >> HMM. “HOMELESS ON CONTINENT THAT THEIR FATHERS CONQUERED.” >> WHAT MOST AMERICAN’S DON’T REALIZE IS RIGHT NOW THEIR MONEY IS BEING STOLEN SILENTLY THROUGH INFLATION, WHICH IS NOT BY ACCIDENT, BUT IS PLANNED, IS THAT RIGHT? >> TOTAL. >> IT’S TOTALLY –. >> THE DOLLAR, I BELIEVE, IS WORTH 4% OF WHAT IT USED TO BE. >> RIGHT. >> SO, BETWEEN PEOPLE USING DEBT AND YOU KNOW, CREDIT… CREDIT CARDS MAX — >> AND THE PROBLEM — >> AND INFLATION, THEY’RE LOSING. >> CORRECT. AND IT’S ACTUALLY A DEBASED CURRENCY. IF YOU PAID OFF AMERICA’S DEBT, LIKE WE SAY, “OKAY, WELL, WE’LL PAY OFF THE DEBT OF AMERICA, ” YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO PAY IT OFF BECAUSE IT WOULD COLLAPSE THE WHOLE SYSTEM, WHICH IS BASED ON DEBT. THE BANKS HAVE THE ABILITY AND THE POWER GIVEN TO THEM FROM THE 1913 AGREEMENT, WHICH MEANS THEY CAN PRINT MONEY OUT OF NOTHING AND THEN TURN AROUND AND CHARGE AMERICA INTEREST ON IT. THAT’S WHY YOUR NOTE SAYS FEDERAL RESERVE –. >> YEAH, THAT’S WHAT THEY DO. >> AND I’VE HEARD YOU SAY FOR YEARS ABOUT TRILLIONS, THERE’S NO WAY TO PAY BACK. >> THERE’S NO WAY TO PAY IT BACK. >> WE’VE REACHED THE POINT OF NO RETURN. >> WE CAN’T EVEN COUNT HOW MANY TRILLIONS. IF YOU WERE COUNTING YOU KNOW, ONE, TWO, THREE, YOU COULDN’T COUNT IT IN A LIFETIME. >> YOU COULDN’T COUNT THAT HIGH. BUT LET’S GO BACK TO THE PETRODOLLAR. LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THAT MANEUVER TOOK PLACE OFF THE GOLD STANDARD AND ALL THESE THINGS THAT TOOK PLACE. WAS THAT PART OF THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS AND PRESIDENT NIXON CALLED THAT AND DID ALL THAT? >> WELL, IT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE BEFORE. BECAUSE HERE, IF YOU REMEMBER ROOSEVELT TOOK US OFF OF THE GOLD. >> HE TOOK US OFF THE GOLD. >> AND CONFISCATED IT, YEAH. >> YEAH, WHICH THEY CAN DO AGAIN BY THE WAY. EVERYONE SAYS INVEST IN GOLD AND SILVER, THEY CAN COME COLLECT THAT TOMORROW. SO, THE PROBLEM THAT WE’RE DEALING WITH IS THAT THE POWERS THAT BE, THEY CAN DO ANYTHING. THEY’RE ABOVE THE LAW. >> THAT’S TRUE. >> THEY’RE TOTALLY ABOVE THE LAW. SO, AS I WAS SAYING LIKE BERNIE MADOFF WAS THE CRIME OF ALL CRIMES, WHICH IT WAS WHAT, A HUNDRED BILLION. NO, NO, WE’RE DEALING WITH PEOPLE THAT HAVE TAKEN TENS UPON TENS OF TRILLIONS. THERE’S TRILLIONS. I MEAN, RIGHT BEFORE 9/11, RUMSFELD SAID THERE WAS 2.3 TRILLION MISSING FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, THE DAY BEFORE 9/11 HE ANNOUNCED. THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, THERE’S A BIG MISTAKE IN ALL OF THE AUDITING AND EVERYTHING. WE’RE MISSING 2.3 TRILLION DOLLARS. THAT WAS JUST IN THE D.O.D. AND THEN YOU ADD THE 21 TRILLION PLUS, PLUS, PLUS. WHAT ABOUT FLOATING THE PLANET, ALL OF THE DERIVATIVES? >> OH, YEAH. >> I HEARD THERE WAS CLOSE TO, WHAT? NEARLY 8 QUADRILLION WORTH OF DERIVATIVES. QUADRILLION. WE DON’T EVEN TALK IN THAT KIND OF A LANGUAGE. SO, THE WHOLE, THIS, THE CHICKENS ARE GONNA COME HOME TO ROOST. SO, ANYWAY. WHEN ROOSEVELT TOOK, F.D.R., TOOK US OFF OF THE GOLD STANDARD BECAUSE HE REALIZED THAT IT WAS NOT ENOUGH GOLD TO BACK UP WHAT THEY HAD PROMISED. AND SO, HERE WE ARE, KENNEDY COMES ALONG, KENNEDY SIGNED WITH THE WEALTH FAMILIES OF EUROPE THAT WERE NOT PART OF THE CABAL AND WE STARTED PRINTING OUR OWN MONEY ‘CAUSE HE SIGNED THE EXECUTIVE ORDER 111110 AND PRINTED FIVE DOLLAR BILL. I HAVE A COPY OF IT. >> U.S. TREASURY NOTES GOING BACK TO THAT. >> YEAH, 1963, AMERICAN NOTE. >> OH, YEAH. >> AND SIX MONTHS AFTER HE WAS ASSASSINATED L.B.J. PULLED THEM OUT OF CIRCULATION. SO, OBVIOUSLY THEY — WITH THE WHOLE — WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE WHOLE OF THE MIDDLE EAST AND SEE HOW THE PETRODOLLAR AS YOU DESCRIBED, WAS CREATED, WHICH YOU CAN SEE HOW THAT WHOLE THING IS MANIPULATED BY OPEC, MANIPULATES THE PRICE OF OIL AND WHAT’S TAKEN PLACE WITH THAT, WHICH AS YOU KNOW, AMERICA HAS ENOUGH OIL THAT WE COULD OUTDO THE MIDDLE EAST. WE HAVE ENOUGH OIL FOR 500 YEARS. >> YES. >> FROM ALASKA TO THE BALKING — >> FRACKING AND ALL THAT, YEAH. >> YEAH. SO, IT’S ALL ABOUT CONTROL. >> IT’S ALL ABOUT CONTROL. >> AND SO IS DISARMING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. >> TOTALLY. BUT EVEN THEN, WE DON’T OWN OUR LAND. >> NO. >> YOU THINK ABOUT IT, YOU PAY OFF YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR WHATEVER. >> PROPERTY TAXES EVERY YEAR. >> SO, IF YOU DON’T PAY THAT, THEY’LL TAKE YOUR HOUSE FROM YOU. SO, DO YOU OWN YOUR HOUSE? YOU DON’T OWN… IS ACTUAL FACT, IN ESSENCE, WE’RE ACTUALLY JUST STEWARDS. >> WELL, THIS HAS BEEN… >> THIS IS SO GREAT, AMAZING. >> A LOT OF MATERIAL HERE. >> AND WE’VE TOUCHED ON THESE AREAS THROUGH THE YEARS AND TO ME, THIS CONVERGENCE OF WHAT YOU’RE SHARING, WITH GOD’S, THE JOURNEY HE’S BEEN BRINGING US ON AS WELL AS TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE WITH THEIR FINANCES AND STAY OUT OF DEBT, IT’S ALL COMING TOGETHER. AND I BELIEVE IT WAS GOD THAT WE RAN INTO YOU HERE IN DC ON THIS DAY. >> I THINK GOD’S SPEAKING TO THE CHURCH. HE’S WAKING THEM UP. I KNOW THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LAST ELECTION. AND I BELIEVE HE’S STILL SPEAKING TO THE CHURCH AS IN — >> WELL, THE CHURCH IS THE MOST POWERFUL POLITICAL FORCE. >> THAT’S RIGHT. >> THE MOST POWERFUL SPIRITUAL FORCE AND THE MOST POWERFUL FINANCIAL FORCE. IF WE UNIFIED AS THE BODY OF CHRIST. >> YES. >> ABSOLUTELY. >> DIVISION IS THE — >> THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT WE COULD DO. >> WHICH IS WHY THE ENEMY DIVIDES US, SO HE CAN CONQUER US. >> RIGHT. CONQUER US. WELL, DR. RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE, HIS NEW BOOK, THE KILLING OF UNCLE SAM IS IN THE MARKETPLACE RIGHT NOW — >> PAUL WILLIAMS, TOO. >> DR. PAUL WILLIAMS. OKAY. AND DR.
