  • 00:01:35.330 --> 00:01:39.034
  • Creflo: All right, now watchthis, verse 3: " For though
  • 00:01:43.205 --> 00:01:45.974
  • we walk in the flesh, we do notwar after the flesh," verse 4,
  • 00:01:46.008 --> 00:01:51.513
  • "(for the weapons of our warfareare not carnal, but they're
  • 00:01:51.547 --> 00:01:55.951
  • mighty through God to thepulling down of strong holds)."
  • 00:01:55.984 --> 00:01:59.588
  • Now, "carnal," it literallymeans "of the five senses,"
  • 00:01:59.621 --> 00:02:06.028
  • "of the five senses."
  • 00:02:06.061 --> 00:02:08.163
  • And our senses have evenbeen given to us
  • 00:02:08.197 --> 00:02:10.933
  • for us to enjoy this life.
  • 00:02:10.966 --> 00:02:13.302
  • You know, what you see andfeel and touch and smell,
  • 00:02:13.335 --> 00:02:15.204
  • all those things havebeen given to us.
  • 00:02:15.237 --> 00:02:17.472
  • But we were never designedby God to allow those
  • 00:02:17.506 --> 00:02:21.210
  • senses to govern our life.
  • 00:02:21.243 --> 00:02:23.145
  • They're to assist our lives,but they were never
  • 00:02:23.178 --> 00:02:25.013
  • supposed to lord orgovern our lives.
  • 00:02:25.047 --> 00:02:28.016
  • So, he says, "The weapons ofour warfare are not carnal,
  • 00:02:28.050 --> 00:02:31.353
  • but they're mighty through God,"watch this,
  • 00:02:31.386 --> 00:02:34.122
  • "to the pulling downof strongholds."
  • 00:02:34.156 --> 00:02:36.858
  • "Strongholds" are"houses of thought
  • 00:02:36.892 --> 00:02:41.296
  • that reside in your mind."
  • 00:02:41.330 --> 00:02:43.131
  • They're houses of thoughtsthat have been
  • 00:02:43.165 --> 00:02:45.567
  • constructed in your mind.
  • 00:02:45.601 --> 00:02:47.035
  • You have actually built up afoundation and you've built
  • 00:02:47.069 --> 00:02:53.742
  • this stronghold in your mind,and you can pull it down,
  • 00:02:53.775 --> 00:03:00.349
  • and I'll show you in a minute.
  • 00:03:00.382 --> 00:03:01.817
  • Look at verse 5: "Castingdown imaginations and every high
  • 00:03:01.850 --> 00:03:06.822
  • thing that exalteth itselfagainst the knowledge of God,
  • 00:03:06.855 --> 00:03:10.025
  • bringin' into captivityevery thought."
  • 00:03:10.058 --> 00:03:13.028
  • Stop, notice he says wecan bring into
  • 00:03:13.061 --> 00:03:15.797
  • captivity every thought.
  • 00:03:15.831 --> 00:03:18.367
  • So, now, all of a sudden,the Scripture tells us that
  • 00:03:18.400 --> 00:03:20.736
  • we can be maintenance peopleover our thought life.
  • 00:03:20.769 --> 00:03:26.675
  • Your thoughts--you know, I usedto think--I don't know when
  • 00:03:26.708 --> 00:03:31.280
  • this was, but I'm reallyashamed to say this,
  • 00:03:31.313 --> 00:03:35.150
  • but I was at this grocery storea long time ago.
  • 00:03:35.183 --> 00:03:38.820
  • I don't even think the chain ofgrocery stores exist anymore.
  • 00:03:38.854 --> 00:03:42.391
  • And there was this elderly ladyin front of me, and this thought
  • 00:03:42.424 --> 00:03:45.594
  • went by, "What would happenif you just pushed her?"
  • 00:03:45.627 --> 00:03:49.564
  • And I'm like, "Where didthat thought come from?"
  • 00:03:49.598 --> 00:03:52.968
  • And I was gettin' frustrated'cause I'm like,
  • 00:03:53.001 --> 00:03:54.670
  • "Where did thatthought come from?"
  • 00:03:54.703 --> 00:03:57.205
  • All right?
  • 00:03:57.239 --> 00:03:58.540
  • Well, of course I didn'tpush the lady,
  • 00:03:58.573 --> 00:04:00.475
  • but the fact thatit came through.
  • 00:04:00.509 --> 00:04:02.744
  • You know, you guys are perfect.
  • 00:04:02.778 --> 00:04:04.079
  • Y'all don't ever have athought fly through.
  • 00:04:04.112 --> 00:04:06.181
  • I was like, "Where didthat come from?" or "Why?"
  • 00:04:06.214 --> 00:04:09.518
  • And that's when I realized,you know, at that point, I was
  • 00:04:09.551 --> 00:04:11.787
  • about to concede to the factthat, "Well, I can't help that.
  • 00:04:11.820 --> 00:04:15.691
  • I don't know where that camefrom, and whatever."
  • 00:04:15.724 --> 00:04:18.960
  • And sometimes, that's theword I was lookin' for, a
  • 00:04:18.994 --> 00:04:21.697
  • fortress, a stronghold--there'sa fortress in your mind.
  • 00:04:21.730 --> 00:04:25.500
  • And sometimes those arejust little materials that
  • 00:04:25.534 --> 00:04:28.904
  • are being used to build afortress in your mind to
  • 00:04:28.937 --> 00:04:32.908
  • bring you to a biggersomethin' later on.
  • 00:04:32.941 --> 00:04:35.477
  • And so, I'll never forgethearing Brother Copeland.
  • 00:04:35.510 --> 00:04:39.848
  • We were talkin' about this,and I was like, you know,
  • 00:04:39.881 --> 00:04:43.785
  • "Let's--" I said, "How inthe world are you
  • 00:04:43.819 --> 00:04:45.554
  • supposed to controlyour thoughts?"
  • 00:04:45.587 --> 00:04:46.922
  • I mean, come on,the Bible says to,
  • 00:04:46.955 --> 00:04:48.423
  • "Cast down and to bring everythought into captivity."
  • 00:04:48.457 --> 00:04:51.660
  • Now, I wanna do thiswith you again.
  • 00:04:51.693 --> 00:04:53.362
  • I've done it, I know,a hundred times.
  • 00:04:53.395 --> 00:04:55.364
  • Some of you are like, "You'vedone this over and over again."
  • 00:04:55.397 --> 00:04:57.399
  • But for the benefit whohave not done it,
  • 00:04:57.432 --> 00:05:00.268
  • please help me do it onemore time, okay?
  • 00:05:00.302 --> 00:05:02.804
  • I want you to count fromone to ten to yourself.
  • 00:05:02.838 --> 00:05:05.907
  • Don't say anything out loud withyour mouth until I tell you to.
  • 00:05:05.941 --> 00:05:08.410
  • Ready, count.No, not with your mouth.
  • 00:05:08.443 --> 00:05:13.448
  • Let's do it again.Don't open your mouth.
  • 00:05:13.482 --> 00:05:16.251
  • You're counting in your mind,your thoughts.
  • 00:05:16.284 --> 00:05:19.454
  • Ready, go.
  • 00:05:19.488 --> 00:05:22.591
  • Now, shout your name.
  • 00:05:23.592 --> 00:05:25.327
  • All right, what happenedto your thoughts?
  • 00:05:25.360 --> 00:05:27.796
  • They were interrupted,weren't they?
  • 00:05:27.829 --> 00:05:29.631
  • They stopped becauseyour thinkin' had to cease
  • 00:05:29.664 --> 00:05:34.035
  • because your mouthis openin' up.
  • 00:05:34.069 --> 00:05:37.005
  • And what was comin' out ofyour mouth caught the thought
  • 00:05:37.038 --> 00:05:40.108
  • because you now have to thinkabout what you just said.
  • 00:05:40.142 --> 00:05:43.378
  • That's how you controlyour thoughts.
  • 00:05:43.412 --> 00:05:45.046
  • When the devil comes in andsays, "You will not live," then
  • 00:05:45.080 --> 00:05:48.450
  • you open your mouth and say,"The Word says I will live
  • 00:05:48.483 --> 00:05:50.719
  • and not die," and youcast that thought down.
  • 00:05:50.752 --> 00:05:53.054
  • And the devil says,"You know,
  • 00:05:53.088 --> 00:05:54.456
  • you're gonna be brokeall your life."
  • 00:05:54.489 --> 00:05:57.092
  • You gotta open your mouth up,cast it down.
  • 00:05:57.125 --> 00:05:58.860
  • Don't let that thought remainin your mind to be used
  • 00:05:58.894 --> 00:06:03.632
  • as material to construct afortress in your head,
  • 00:06:03.665 --> 00:06:07.669
  • to construct a stronghold.
  • 00:06:07.702 --> 00:06:09.004
  • Cast it down.
  • 00:06:09.037 --> 00:06:10.872
  • How do you cast it down?You open your mouth.
  • 00:06:10.906 --> 00:06:13.408
  • You speak the Word of Godthat contradicts the
  • 00:06:13.442 --> 00:06:15.777
  • thought that went in your mind.
  • 00:06:15.811 --> 00:06:17.546
  • "You're gonna be brokeall your life."
  • 00:06:17.579 --> 00:06:19.114
  • "No way, my God shall supplyall of my needs
  • 00:06:19.147 --> 00:06:21.249
  • according to hisriches in glory.
  • 00:06:21.283 --> 00:06:22.784
  • I am prosperous.I am wealthy.
  • 00:06:22.818 --> 00:06:25.120
  • I am healthy, and I am sound."You have to open your mouth.
  • 00:06:25.153 --> 00:06:30.325
  • Somebody says, "Well, peopleare gonna think I'm crazy."
  • 00:06:30.358 --> 00:06:32.093
  • All right, all right, don't openyour mouth, and let all them
  • 00:06:32.127 --> 00:06:34.429
  • stupid thoughts stay up there,and you probably will be
  • 00:06:34.463 --> 00:06:36.565
  • crazy one day 'causeyou let all that stuff in.
  • 00:06:36.598 --> 00:06:39.434
  • And this is takin' authority.This is takin' authority.
  • 00:06:39.468 --> 00:06:42.704
  • I'm not talkin' aboutjust sweet little crispy,
  • 00:06:42.737 --> 00:06:44.506
  • I'm--listen, I believeevery bit of this Word.
  • 00:06:44.539 --> 00:06:46.608
  • I am qualified to preachwhat I'm preachin' tonight.
  • 00:06:46.641 --> 00:06:51.713
  • I wouldn't doubt some of y'allhave not ever been worldwide
  • 00:06:51.746 --> 00:06:56.485
  • dogged out like me.
  • 00:06:56.518 --> 00:06:57.819
  • How did I make it through?
  • 00:06:57.853 --> 00:06:59.621
  • I cast those thoughts down.
  • 00:06:59.654 --> 00:07:01.890
  • Listen to me.Open your mouth.
  • 00:07:01.923 --> 00:07:04.125
  • That's why you get the Word,that's why you're comin', so you
  • 00:07:04.159 --> 00:07:06.228
  • can understand whatthe Word is, so you
  • 00:07:06.261 --> 00:07:07.896
  • can contradict that thought.
  • 00:07:07.929 --> 00:07:09.831
  • And the Bible says, "You castdown the image maker."
  • 00:07:09.865 --> 00:07:13.435
  • Imagination, that's animage maker.
  • 00:07:13.468 --> 00:07:15.437
  • Guess what?What will make the image?
  • 00:07:15.470 --> 00:07:17.172
  • The thoughts.
  • 00:07:17.205 --> 00:07:18.874
  • You keep those thoughts up thereand you start thinkin' about
  • 00:07:18.907 --> 00:07:20.542
  • those thoughts more than whatyou think about, you're gonna
  • 00:07:20.575 --> 00:07:22.377
  • start seein' a pictureof the very thoughts
  • 00:07:22.410 --> 00:07:23.712
  • that's been comin'in your mind, okay?
  • 00:07:23.745 --> 00:07:26.381
  • "Castin' down imagination,every thigh thing that exalts
  • 00:07:26.414 --> 00:07:29.417
  • itself against theknowledge of God."
  • 00:07:29.451 --> 00:07:31.319
  • So any thought that's higherthan God's Word--you know,
  • 00:07:31.353 --> 00:07:35.423
  • God's Word says you're healed.
  • 00:07:35.457 --> 00:07:37.392
  • Another thing'll come inand says,
  • 00:07:37.425 --> 00:07:38.727
  • "You're gonna dieof the sickness."
  • 00:07:38.760 --> 00:07:40.328
  • No, that exalts itself abovethe knowledge of God's Word,
  • 00:07:40.362 --> 00:07:43.732
  • and it is Word thatit'll be cast down.
  • 00:07:43.765 --> 00:07:47.002
  • "And bringing into captivity,"you can capture,
  • 00:07:47.035 --> 00:07:50.505
  • "every thought and bring itinto the obedience of Christ."
  • 00:07:50.539 --> 00:07:53.608
  • That's awesome, that'sauthority right there.
  • 00:07:53.642 --> 00:07:56.478
  • Look how powerful that is.
  • 00:07:56.511 --> 00:07:58.647
  • You can capture everynegative thought and
  • 00:07:58.680 --> 00:08:02.050
  • cast it down withthe Word of God.
  • 00:08:02.083 --> 00:08:03.785
  • Or you can be a normal,average person without Christ
  • 00:08:03.818 --> 00:08:08.423
  • and let those thoughtstorment you.
  • 00:08:08.456 --> 00:08:12.694
  • How many of you got children?
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:17.399
  • You better learn whatI just said.
  • 00:08:17.432 --> 00:08:21.236
  • You better learnwhat I just said, amen?
  • 00:08:22.337 --> 00:08:27.876
  • And so, if you can control yourthought life, and you can,
  • 00:08:27.909 --> 00:08:33.682
  • I just showed you, then youcan control your emotions.
  • 00:08:33.715 --> 00:08:38.753
  • Control your thoughts, if youcontrol the way you think,
  • 00:08:38.787 --> 00:08:41.323
  • you control the way you feel.
  • 00:08:41.356 --> 00:08:43.692
  • Somebody said,"I feel depressed."
  • 00:08:43.725 --> 00:08:45.293
  • First thing I'mma ask you is,
  • 00:08:45.327 --> 00:08:46.728
  • "What have you beenthinkin' about?"
  • 00:08:46.761 --> 00:08:48.763
  • 'Cause that's pressurein your thought life.
  • 00:08:48.797 --> 00:08:51.933
  • "I feel depressed."
  • 00:08:51.967 --> 00:08:53.535
  • Well, what's the simple solutionthere?
  • 00:08:53.568 --> 00:08:55.036
  • Let's deal with what you'vebeen thinkin' about.

  • You hear what I'm sayin'?You don't--I don't--

  • 00:09:10.051 --> 00:09:12.187
  • and you just don'tknow what I feel."
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:13.855
  • I do not wanna be insensitiveand sound like I'm out of love,
  • 00:09:13.888 --> 00:09:16.925
  • but you're feelin' and goin'through everything
  • 00:09:16.958 --> 00:09:19.661
  • you wanna feel and go through.
  • 00:09:19.694 --> 00:09:23.698
  • "Y'all just don't understand."
  • 00:09:26.501 --> 00:09:28.003
  • No, I understand perfectlyhow this system works.
  • 00:09:28.036 --> 00:09:31.706
  • That ain't the first badcircumstances that's gonna
  • 00:09:31.740 --> 00:09:34.175
  • happen in your life, andit ain't gonna be the last.

  • And there are things that hurt,they hurt, but that's the time--
  • 00:09:37.712 --> 00:09:44.152
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:09:44.185 --> 00:09:47.155
  • I am gonna show you,if I get to it tonight,
  • 00:09:47.188 --> 00:09:49.824
  • that if you can controlyour emotions, there
  • 00:09:49.858 --> 00:09:54.129
  • is a fruit of theSpirit called what?
  • 00:09:54.162 --> 00:09:55.797
  • Temperance, and temperanceis self-control.
  • 00:09:55.830 --> 00:09:59.034
  • Do you know whatself-control does?
  • 00:09:59.067 --> 00:10:00.769
  • Self-control moves youin the place where
  • 00:10:00.802 --> 00:10:04.305
  • God's been tryin' to get you.
  • 00:10:04.339 --> 00:10:08.043
  • So all of this stuffthat's happening
  • 00:10:08.076 --> 00:10:10.245
  • is an attack against destiny.
  • 00:10:10.278 --> 00:10:15.917
  • And all he's gonna be doin'for the rest of your life
  • 00:10:20.955 --> 00:10:23.324
  • is presenting circumstancesto see if you can
  • 00:10:23.358 --> 00:10:25.794
  • get your emotionsto control you.
  • 00:10:25.827 --> 00:10:28.163
  • And with those emotionscontrolling you,
  • 00:10:28.196 --> 00:10:29.764
  • they're gonna take you awayfrom your destiny.
  • 00:10:29.798 --> 00:10:32.901
  • An airplane, if I am 1 degreeoff course, just 1 degree off
  • 00:10:32.934 --> 00:10:38.073
  • course, the more I travel 1degree off course, the more
  • 00:10:38.106 --> 00:10:43.878
  • and more I get farther andfarther away from my destiny.
  • 00:10:43.912 --> 00:10:48.683
  • So, the same thing is true withyou not takin'--and, please,
  • 00:10:48.717 --> 00:10:53.254
  • I'm not sayin' you're not takin'this series seriously, but
  • 00:10:53.288 --> 00:10:57.025
  • I am, like,"Man, this is really--
  • 00:10:57.058 --> 00:11:05.734
  • where our authorityis concerned.
  • 00:11:05.767 --> 00:11:07.535
  • Dude, you get this, you turninto a whole 'nother person."
  • 00:11:07.569 --> 00:11:11.372
  • And you gonna have to learnhow to pause.
  • 00:11:11.406 --> 00:11:14.509
  • Some of y'all go too--you justgo off the handle too quick.
  • 00:11:14.542 --> 00:11:16.745
  • You've gotta learnhow to just selah.
  • 00:11:16.778 --> 00:11:19.914
  • You gotta learn how.
  • 00:11:19.948 --> 00:11:21.249
  • Certain things don't need to beresponded to right away.
  • 00:11:21.282 --> 00:11:23.184
  • You just gotta learn howto pause and shut up.
  • 00:11:23.218 --> 00:11:27.422
  • You gotta get ananointing of shut up.
  • 00:11:27.455 --> 00:11:31.359
  • 'Cause wherever the words go,
  • 00:11:31.392 --> 00:11:33.561
  • then everything elseis gonna follow.
  • 00:11:33.595 --> 00:11:36.164
  • And the Bible says, "If you cancontrol the words that come out
  • 00:11:36.197 --> 00:11:38.366
  • of your mouth, your tongue,then you can steer your life."
  • 00:11:38.399 --> 00:11:43.338
  • But sometimes, you open yourmouth up, and there it go.
  • 00:11:43.371 --> 00:11:46.141
  • It's messed up.
  • 00:11:46.174 --> 00:11:47.742
  • I mean, the angels is like,
  • 00:11:47.776 --> 00:11:49.077
  • "Hold it, hold it, hold it,hold it, hold it."
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:53.815
  • "Well, I don't like you either."
  • 00:11:53.848 --> 00:11:55.283
  • "God dog it, you donemessed up."
  • 00:11:55.316 --> 00:11:59.220
  • The fear of being disrespectedcauses you to respond
  • 00:12:00.088 --> 00:12:04.359
  • as if the disrespect hasactually taken place.
  • 00:12:04.392 --> 00:12:09.164
  • And that's what happenedwith a lot of black men.
  • 00:12:09.197 --> 00:12:11.299
  • "I'm afraid you gonna disrespectme, so I'm already got myself
  • 00:12:11.332 --> 00:12:17.405
  • tensed and ready to go, andI'm gonna respond to you as
  • 00:12:17.438 --> 00:12:22.010
  • if you've disrespected me, andit hasn't even happened yet."
  • 00:12:22.043 --> 00:12:25.513
  • My fear of disrespect causedme to move in my emotions
  • 00:12:25.547 --> 00:12:29.050
  • to do somethin', and I end up injail because,
  • 00:12:29.083 --> 00:12:32.253
  • "You ain't gonna disrespect me.
  • 00:12:32.287 --> 00:12:34.355
  • Even if I got to go to jail,
  • 00:12:34.389 --> 00:12:35.890
  • I ain't gonna let nobodydisrespect me."
  • 00:12:35.924 --> 00:12:37.692
  • Nobody's disrespected you.
  • 00:12:37.725 --> 00:12:39.260
  • You just have the fearof disrespect that
  • 00:12:39.294 --> 00:12:41.496
  • moved you into a panic mode.
  • 00:12:41.529 --> 00:12:43.598
  • And now you're respondingin your emotions
  • 00:12:43.631 --> 00:12:45.934
  • that's gonna end up gettin'you in trouble.
  • 00:12:45.967 --> 00:12:50.171
  • Wow, that happened with meand my children.
  • 00:12:50.205 --> 00:12:54.509
  • It was like I had--and Ididn't even know this
  • 00:12:54.542 --> 00:12:56.778
  • until God showed it to me.
  • 00:12:56.811 --> 00:12:58.880
  • I was so afraid that they'regonna disrespect me,
  • 00:12:58.913 --> 00:13:03.551
  • "And I'm not gonna let youdisrespect me,"
  • 00:13:03.585 --> 00:13:05.119
  • so I was all ready to goin a argument mode
  • 00:13:05.153 --> 00:13:10.091
  • or blastin'-you-down modebecause,
  • 00:13:10.124 --> 00:13:12.861
  • "You ain't gonna disrespect me."
  • 00:13:12.894 --> 00:13:15.096
  • And I'm not listenin' now, see?
  • 00:13:15.129 --> 00:13:16.865
  • All I'm thinkin' about is,
  • 00:13:16.898 --> 00:13:18.199
  • "You're not gonnadisrespect me."
  • 00:13:18.233 --> 00:13:20.335
  • And the Lord dealt with meon that, and said,
  • 00:13:20.368 --> 00:13:22.136
  • "Now, you need to change.
  • 00:13:22.170 --> 00:13:23.571
  • Let me show you howto handle this."
  • 00:13:23.605 --> 00:13:25.373
  • And I'm tellin' you, when Ichanged and no longer walked
  • 00:13:25.406 --> 00:13:29.110
  • in the fear of disrespect,and would be able to pause
  • 00:13:29.143 --> 00:13:33.248
  • and not respond to somedisrespectful comment or
  • 00:13:33.281 --> 00:13:36.684
  • somethin' that came out,you know what happened?
  • 00:13:36.718 --> 00:13:39.220
  • They changed.
  • 00:13:39.254 --> 00:13:42.290
  • Wasn't them, it was theprovoker, wasn't them.
  • 00:13:42.323 --> 00:13:48.796
  • And I never heard anythinglike that.
  • 00:13:48.830 --> 00:13:50.398
  • I think I taught it at the men'sfellowship about, you know,
  • 00:13:50.431 --> 00:13:53.668
  • avoiding the fear of disrespect.
  • 00:13:53.701 --> 00:13:58.106
  • Everybody take a deep breath.
  • 00:14:00.508 --> 00:14:01.943
  • I feel like I just poureda whole lot on you.
  • 00:14:01.976 --> 00:14:03.611
  • And y'all like, "Goddang, man,leave me alone."
  • 00:14:03.645 --> 00:14:07.782
  • It's everybody, that's whyI wanted to share that
  • 00:14:07.815 --> 00:14:09.918
  • with you so youcould be all right.
  • 00:14:09.951 --> 00:14:11.419
  • You a'ight?
  • 00:14:11.452 --> 00:14:13.588
  • Turn to your neighbor and say,"You a'ight?"
  • 00:14:13.621 --> 00:14:16.524
  • So what happens,you control your thoughts,
  • 00:14:19.427 --> 00:14:22.063
  • and then you will have controlover your emotions.
  • 00:14:22.096 --> 00:14:24.565
  • And when you get hold ofyour emotions, then you'll
  • 00:14:24.599 --> 00:14:27.835
  • have peace and securityon the inside of you.
  • 00:14:27.869 --> 00:14:32.307
  • And what happens then?
  • 00:14:32.340 --> 00:14:33.708
  • You eliminate your needto control other people.
  • 00:14:33.741 --> 00:14:37.545
  • Now you don't needto control anybody.
  • 00:14:37.578 --> 00:14:40.815
  • A husband doesn't need tocontrol his wife anymore
  • 00:14:40.848 --> 00:14:44.052
  • because he can control histhoughts, his emotions.
  • 00:14:44.085 --> 00:14:46.554
  • He's got peace and securityon the inside.
  • 00:14:46.587 --> 00:14:48.289
  • There is no needto control anybody.
  • 00:14:48.323 --> 00:14:50.525
  • A wife doesn't need tocontrol anybody because
  • 00:14:50.558 --> 00:14:52.961
  • she has that same thingon the inside of her.
  • 00:14:52.994 --> 00:14:56.297
  • Now, if you can control youremotions, you can absolutely
  • 00:14:56.331 --> 00:14:59.567
  • do--and I am not backin'off on this.
  • 00:14:59.600 --> 00:15:02.103
  • If you can controlyour emotions,
  • 00:15:02.136 --> 00:15:03.671
  • you can absolutely do anything.
  • 00:15:03.705 --> 00:15:08.977
  • Turn to your neighbor and say,"If you can control
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:10.979
  • your emotions, youcan do anything."
  • 00:15:11.012 --> 00:15:14.315
  • Whoo, hey let's go to Proverbschapter 16:32 'cause Proverbs
  • 00:15:18.820 --> 00:15:23.891
  • 16:32, I wanna look at it in theKing James and the Amplified.
  • 00:15:23.925 --> 00:15:29.230
  • Proverbs 16:32 sayssomethin' like this.
  • 00:15:29.263 --> 00:15:32.033
  • It talks about if you cancontrol your emotions,
  • 00:15:32.066 --> 00:15:35.303
  • I mean, you're mightierthan any army.
  • 00:15:35.336 --> 00:15:38.006
  • But the opposite is true.
  • 00:15:38.039 --> 00:15:39.540
  • If you can't control youremotions, mighty armies
  • 00:15:39.574 --> 00:15:41.776
  • will invade your lifeand control you.
  • 00:15:41.809 --> 00:15:45.780
  • He says it like this:"He that is slow to anger
  • 00:15:45.813 --> 00:15:47.782
  • is better than the mighty."
  • 00:15:47.815 --> 00:15:50.585
  • "He that is slow to angeris better than the mighty."
  • 00:15:50.618 --> 00:15:56.124
  • Now, I told you,anger is a response.
  • 00:15:56.157 --> 00:16:01.929
  • Anger is fear-based,it's fear-based.
  • 00:16:01.963 --> 00:16:06.401
  • Anger is an expressionof your fear.
  • 00:16:06.434 --> 00:16:11.773
  • When you get angry, fromthis point on, every
  • 00:16:11.806 --> 00:16:14.075
  • time you get angry, you'reafraid of somethin'.
  • 00:16:14.108 --> 00:16:17.078
  • Anger is an expression of fear.
  • 00:16:17.111 --> 00:16:19.580
  • I am afraid of somethin',and so I'm expressin' it
  • 00:16:19.614 --> 00:16:21.983
  • through my anger.
  • 00:16:22.016 --> 00:16:23.818
  • I tell you the story about whenTaffi was doin' business?
  • 00:16:23.851 --> 00:16:25.987
  • She was still runnin' the recordlabel, and she was gettin' ready
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:29.257
  • to do business with somebody,and I just, I expressed anger.
  • 00:16:29.290 --> 00:16:35.029
  • And the Lord asked me, hesays, "What are you afraid of?"
  • 00:16:35.063 --> 00:16:38.132
  • And I said, "Don't you meanwhat am I mad at?"
  • 00:16:38.166 --> 00:16:40.168
  • And he says, "No, what areyou afraid of?"
  • 00:16:40.201 --> 00:16:41.536
  • You're expressin' your fear.
  • 00:16:41.569 --> 00:16:43.604
  • I was like, "Wow, I neversaw that before."
  • 00:16:43.638 --> 00:16:45.673
  • I said, "I'm afraid thatthey're gonna take
  • 00:16:45.706 --> 00:16:47.275
  • advantage of her and hurt her."
  • 00:16:47.308 --> 00:16:49.310
  • He says, "Well, why don'tyou just tell her that?"
  • 00:16:49.343 --> 00:16:52.080
  • Wow, that was a big turnaroundin my life, and I wrote that
  • 00:16:52.113 --> 00:16:55.316
  • book on fear and overcomingthe spirit of fear because
  • 00:16:55.349 --> 00:16:58.119
  • when you can understandthat fear-based issues will
  • 00:16:58.152 --> 00:17:04.125
  • always produce other issuesin a person's life.
  • 00:17:04.158 --> 00:17:07.662
  • So, "He that is slow to anger isbetter than the mighty."
  • 00:17:07.695 --> 00:17:10.298
  • A man or a woman whocannot control his emotions,
  • 00:17:10.331 --> 00:17:13.334
  • when you lose your emotions,
  • 00:17:13.367 --> 00:17:14.902
  • you are the weakestperson on the planet.
  • 00:17:14.936 --> 00:17:18.873
  • When you lose your emotions.
  • 00:17:18.906 --> 00:17:20.408
  • I gave an illustration the lasttime I was here about,
  • 00:17:20.441 --> 00:17:24.512
  • let's say, a personwho was driving his car,
  • 00:17:24.545 --> 00:17:27.915
  • and it was your brand-new car.
  • 00:17:27.949 --> 00:17:31.119
  • It was your brand-newexpensive car.
  • 00:17:31.152 --> 00:17:33.521
  • And somebody, they were notpaying attention, and
  • 00:17:33.554 --> 00:17:36.057
  • they hit your brand-newexpensive car, okay?
  • 00:17:36.090 --> 00:17:39.527
  • And instead of you waitin'till the police showed up
  • 00:17:39.560 --> 00:17:42.029
  • and do everything properly,you jumped out of the car.
  • 00:17:42.063 --> 00:17:45.733
  • You got in this person's face.
  • 00:17:45.766 --> 00:17:47.768
  • You were expressing yourfear, your anger,
  • 00:17:47.802 --> 00:17:50.138
  • you're out of control, okay?
  • 00:17:50.171 --> 00:17:53.374
  • And, you know, the personkinda brushed you,
  • 00:17:53.407 --> 00:17:56.077
  • and you hit them, all right?
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:58.913
  • Now, the police comes, andthey arrest you, all right?
  • 00:17:58.946 --> 00:18:04.118
  • And it's Friday, and your jobsaid, "If you miss one more day,
  • 00:18:04.152 --> 00:18:08.856
  • you're gonna lose your job."
  • 00:18:08.890 --> 00:18:10.892
  • Well, you gotta workon Saturday,
  • 00:18:10.925 --> 00:18:12.760
  • but the judge is notin on Saturday.
  • 00:18:12.793 --> 00:18:15.429
  • Right, judge?
  • 00:18:15.463 --> 00:18:16.764
  • Judges don't work onSaturday and Sunday.
  • 00:18:16.797 --> 00:18:18.299
  • [laughing]
  • 00:18:18.332 --> 00:18:19.634
  • You know?And then so you're there.
  • 00:18:19.667 --> 00:18:23.604
  • You've lost your job.
  • 00:18:23.638 --> 00:18:26.107
  • All of that started whenyou lost your temper,
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:30.144
  • when you couldn't controlyour temper.
  • 00:18:30.178 --> 00:18:34.782
  • Psh, don't come with all theother excuses for why you
  • 00:18:34.815 --> 00:18:38.419
  • got put in jail except youwere a man out of control.
  • 00:18:38.452 --> 00:18:42.623
  • At that point, youwere a very weak man.
  • 00:18:42.657 --> 00:18:45.993
  • So when we talk about manhood,the weakest man on the planet
  • 00:18:46.027 --> 00:18:49.730
  • is the one who cannotcontrol his emotions.
  • 00:18:49.764 --> 00:18:54.235
  • The strongest man onthe planet is one
  • 00:18:54.268 --> 00:18:56.370
  • who can control his emotions.
  • 00:18:56.404 --> 00:18:58.439
  • You actually think you'reshowin' people how big
  • 00:18:58.472 --> 00:19:01.309
  • and bad you are becauseyou lose your emotions
  • 00:19:01.342 --> 00:19:03.411
  • and you start throwin'--?
  • 00:19:03.444 --> 00:19:04.779
  • I don't understand why peopledo that.
  • 00:19:04.812 --> 00:19:06.180
  • I mean, I see thaton the movies.
  • 00:19:06.214 --> 00:19:07.515
  • They get mad, and theytear up their furniture,
  • 00:19:07.548 --> 00:19:09.684
  • stuff they worked hard for.
  • 00:19:09.717 --> 00:19:12.386
  • You know, they tear thestuff off the table
  • 00:19:12.420 --> 00:19:14.388
  • and break the lampsand all that.
  • 00:19:14.422 --> 00:19:15.957
  • I ain't never gonna be thatmad to be tearin' up
  • 00:19:15.990 --> 00:19:17.725
  • stuff I done spentmy money to buy.
  • 00:19:17.758 --> 00:19:20.661
  • They get baseball bats and knockthey window out in they car.
  • 00:19:20.695 --> 00:19:23.598
  • No, I can go outsidein the woods and
  • 00:19:23.631 --> 00:19:25.466
  • do that somewhereelse, you know?
  • 00:19:25.499 --> 00:19:28.035
  • You're a weak guy.
  • 00:19:28.069 --> 00:19:29.537
  • You're a weak man becausea strong man who can
  • 00:19:29.570 --> 00:19:31.472
  • control his emotions alsohas the wisdom to know
  • 00:19:31.505 --> 00:19:33.841
  • how to wisely deal with thatthing, and that's real power,
  • 00:19:33.874 --> 00:19:38.512
  • being able to think about it.
  • 00:19:38.546 --> 00:19:40.181
  • And we gotta share that withour brothers, man.
  • 00:19:40.214 --> 00:19:42.383
  • Listen, you're not strongwhen you losin' your emotions.
  • 00:19:42.416 --> 00:19:45.853
  • You're not strong when you runin the house and talk about,
  • 00:19:45.886 --> 00:19:47.655
  • "I'mma get a gun andI'mma shoot you."
  • 00:19:47.688 --> 00:19:48.990
  • You're afraid.
  • 00:19:49.023 --> 00:19:50.891
  • See, when I was growin' up,didn't nobody go get no guns.
  • 00:19:50.925 --> 00:19:53.427
  • We had a guy, Mr.--,in the neighborhood
  • 00:19:53.461 --> 00:19:56.530
  • who had boxin' gloves.
  • 00:19:56.564 --> 00:19:58.599
  • And you had a beef, youhad to handle it like a man.
  • 00:19:58.633 --> 00:20:02.069
  • And you'd get in the front yard,put the boxin' gloves on, and,
  • 00:20:02.103 --> 00:20:04.905
  • you know, whoever get knockedout--and then most of the time,
  • 00:20:04.939 --> 00:20:07.708
  • you come out of it, you sotired 'cause you just think
  • 00:20:07.742 --> 00:20:09.810
  • you wanna--you know,anger got you exhausted.
  • 00:20:09.844 --> 00:20:11.946
  • After you finished, you're like,"Man, you know, I'm a'ight.
  • 00:20:11.979 --> 00:20:13.781
  • You a'ight, man?"
  • 00:20:13.814 --> 00:20:15.116
  • You go buy a freezin' cup,
  • 00:20:15.149 --> 00:20:16.450
  • and y'all friends for therest of the time.
  • 00:20:16.484 --> 00:20:17.818
  • Ain't nobody shoot nobody.
  • 00:20:17.852 --> 00:20:19.253
  • That's fear that drives us towanna go and shoot somebody.
  • 00:20:19.287 --> 00:20:23.024
  • And we don't even knowour emotions are
  • 00:20:23.057 --> 00:20:24.992
  • causin' us to do that.
  • 00:20:25.026 --> 00:20:27.194
  • There are issues goin' onin our society today, and
  • 00:20:27.228 --> 00:20:29.230
  • we don't even have the--wedon't even know the beginning
  • 00:20:29.263 --> 00:20:33.234
  • wisdom of how to even track itback to the foundational issue.
  • 00:20:33.267 --> 00:20:39.006
  • We have no idea.Politics can't resolve that.
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:43.444
  • You can go and make more lawsand come up with more rules.
  • 00:20:43.477 --> 00:20:46.314
  • That's not gonna solve that.
  • 00:20:46.347 --> 00:20:49.250
  • And that's where the churchcomes in there,
  • 00:20:49.283 --> 00:20:50.818
  • but the church don't evenknow how to do that.
  • 00:20:50.851 --> 00:20:53.487
  • They don't even knowhow to explain it.
  • 00:20:53.521 --> 00:20:54.822
  • They call it a demon.Then--
  • 00:20:54.855 --> 00:20:56.390
  • "Well, the boy got a demon.Bring the boy in.
  • 00:20:56.424 --> 00:20:57.892
  • We need to cast it out, get himdelivered in the name of Jesus."
  • 00:20:57.925 --> 00:21:01.729
  • Well, I mean, he might havea few demons in him,
  • 00:21:01.762 --> 00:21:03.898
  • but those demons are workin'on his emotions,
  • 00:21:03.931 --> 00:21:07.935
  • and he can take authorityover the emotion.
  • 00:21:07.968 --> 00:21:09.937
  • Satan's been stripped.
  • 00:21:09.970 --> 00:21:11.605
  • He don't have too much authorityto do nothing unless
  • 00:21:11.639 --> 00:21:15.009
  • you yield your emotions to gothe way he's suggesting.
  • 00:21:15.042 --> 00:21:21.916
  • Is everybody followin' me?I'm, like, so seriously gone.
  • 00:21:23.984 --> 00:21:29.623
  • "I'm gonna go and give somebodya piece of my mind."
  • 00:21:33.994 --> 00:21:35.830
  • You ain't got much mind left.
  • 00:21:35.863 --> 00:21:37.465
  • Just keep your mind, and don'tbe piecin' it out to people.
  • 00:21:37.498 --> 00:21:41.802
  • That's--What is that?
  • 00:21:41.836 --> 00:21:43.704
  • You wanna show somebodythat you're tough?
  • 00:21:43.738 --> 00:21:45.639
  • What's that?
  • 00:21:45.673 --> 00:21:47.742
  • That's not demonstrating realpower and strength.
  • 00:21:47.775 --> 00:21:51.979
  • Real power and real strength isdemonstrated to the person
  • 00:21:52.012 --> 00:21:55.349
  • that can be quiet and thinkand have self-control.
  • 00:21:55.383 --> 00:22:04.992
  • Phew, so, "He's better thanthe mighty; and he that ruleth
  • 00:22:05.025 --> 00:22:11.599
  • his spirit, he's better thanhe that taketh a city."
  • 00:22:11.632 --> 00:22:17.371
  • Look at this in the Amplified.I mean, this is pretty powerful.
  • 00:22:17.872 --> 00:22:19.940
  • He's talkin' about a guy who cancontrol his emotions
  • 00:22:19.974 --> 00:22:22.276
  • being mightier than an army.
  • 00:22:22.309 --> 00:22:25.613
  • Look at, the Amplified says:"He who is slow to anger
  • 00:22:25.646 --> 00:22:28.115
  • is better than the mighty, hewho rules his [own] spirit,"
  • 00:22:28.149 --> 00:22:31.519
  • or soul, "than he who takesa city."
  • 00:22:31.552 --> 00:22:34.722
  • And that word'sreferrin' to soul.
  • 00:22:34.755 --> 00:22:38.759
  • Now, so, "A man who cancontrol or master his emotions
  • 00:22:40.027 --> 00:22:43.297
  • is more powerful than anyarmy that takes a city."
  • 00:22:43.330 --> 00:22:47.134
  • So, now, let's just pausefor a moment.
  • 00:22:47.168 --> 00:22:50.070
  • There are three main issuesI want you to get out
  • 00:22:50.104 --> 00:22:52.072
  • of what I said before I startpreachin', three main issues.
  • 00:22:52.106 --> 00:22:56.243
  • Let's review for a moment.
  • 00:22:56.277 --> 00:22:57.578
  • Number one, you can take controlover your emotions.
  • 00:22:57.611 --> 00:23:01.415
  • Say that: "I can take controlover my emotions."
  • 00:23:01.449 --> 00:23:05.686
  • Okay, number two, self-controlis a godly force designed
  • 00:23:06.353 --> 00:23:14.195
  • by God to direct our lives wherehe has designed them to go.
  • 00:23:14.228 --> 00:23:19.967
  • Self-control is a godly force.
  • 00:23:20.000 --> 00:23:24.505
  • It's a fruit of the Spirit,temperance.
  • 00:23:24.538 --> 00:23:26.207
  • It's a godly force.It's designed by God.
  • 00:23:26.240 --> 00:23:29.143
  • For what purpose?
  • 00:23:29.176 --> 00:23:30.878
  • To direct our lives where he hasdesigned them to go.
  • 00:23:30.911 --> 00:23:36.517
  • So, when you're operating inthe fruit of temperance and
  • 00:23:36.550 --> 00:23:39.753
  • self-control, you're givingGod the opportunity to take
  • 00:23:39.787 --> 00:23:44.492
  • your life where he'sdesigned for your life to go.
  • 00:23:44.525 --> 00:23:47.561
  • So if you spend all of yourtime out of control,
  • 00:23:47.595 --> 00:23:50.998
  • you're gonna spend all yourtime off-course.
  • 00:23:51.031 --> 00:23:54.802
  • And I don't wanna be off-course.I don't wanna spend my time mad.
  • 00:23:54.835 --> 00:24:00.508
  • You know, I don'twanna spend--I'm so glad
  • 00:24:00.541 --> 00:24:03.511
  • somethin'--well, the Holy Spiriton the inside of me
  • 00:24:03.544 --> 00:24:06.113
  • reconciled that with my father.
  • 00:24:06.146 --> 00:24:08.015
  • I didn't wanna spend the restof his life me bein' mad at him.
  • 00:24:08.048 --> 00:24:11.719
  • It's just like, "Okay,whatever's done is done.
  • 00:24:11.752 --> 00:24:13.888
  • You know, I'm a Christian now.I forgive, let's go on."
  • 00:24:13.921 --> 00:24:15.990
  • I'm so glad that I was ableto do that.
  • 00:24:16.023 --> 00:24:20.427
  • It takes a lot more energy to bemad than it is to forgive.
  • 00:24:20.461 --> 00:24:24.865
  • And some things you maynever figure out, and you
  • 00:24:24.899 --> 00:24:28.936
  • may have to make your mind up,"You know what?
  • 00:24:28.969 --> 00:24:31.238
  • Let's go forward."
