  • - female announcer: Coming up
  • 00:00:08.110 --> 00:00:09.050
  • on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.050 --> 00:00:10.160
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: That you
  • 00:00:10.160 --> 00:00:11.160
  • can't just rejoice over how you
  • 00:00:11.160 --> 00:00:13.210
  • want your story to end.
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:16.200
  • The real test of faith is to
  • 00:00:16.200 --> 00:00:19.070
  • rejoice in trouble.
  • 00:00:20.050 --> 00:00:23.050
  • God is jealous, and he said, "I
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:25.210
  • will have no other god before
  • 00:00:25.210 --> 00:00:27.100
  • me, and I will take you through
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:29.220
  • some stuff to see if you are
  • 00:00:29.220 --> 00:00:31.100
  • praising me because of him or
  • 00:00:31.100 --> 00:00:33.220
  • because of me, because of her or
  • 00:00:33.220 --> 00:00:36.100
  • because of me.
  • 00:00:36.100 --> 00:00:37.120
  • Are you praising me for the
  • 00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:38.210
  • house, or are you praising me
  • 00:00:38.210 --> 00:00:40.160
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:54.050 --> 00:00:56.100
  • - Bishop Jakes: When you start
  • 00:01:01.100 --> 00:01:02.030
  • talking about the importance of
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:03.110
  • Paul, whose name was also Saul,
  • 00:01:03.260 --> 00:01:06.260
  • Saul, his name Saul, represented
  • 00:01:06.260 --> 00:01:09.060
  • the fact that he was a Hebrew,
  • 00:01:09.060 --> 00:01:11.200
  • that he was of Hebraistic
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:13.180
  • descent, that he was of the
  • 00:01:14.140 --> 00:01:17.140
  • Pharisees, that he was
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:20.120
  • significant historically to the
  • 00:01:20.120 --> 00:01:23.080
  • development of Judaism, that he
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:25.140
  • was zealous concerning the law,
  • 00:01:25.140 --> 00:01:27.190
  • that he was of the tribe of
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:28.280
  • Benjamin.
  • 00:01:28.280 --> 00:01:29.240
  • He was a part of royalty.
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:31.060
  • His name was Saul, but when we
  • 00:01:31.060 --> 00:01:32.230
  • call him Paul, his name Paul
  • 00:01:32.230 --> 00:01:35.010
  • represents the fact that he is a
  • 00:01:35.010 --> 00:01:36.220
  • citizen of Rome.
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:39.170
  • So, while he is Jewish in his
  • 00:01:39.170 --> 00:01:41.100
  • descent, he is a citizen of
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:43.260
  • Rome, and Paul is coming home
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:47.150
  • different from how he left.
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:52.110
  • At one time he'd left there
  • 00:01:52.110 --> 00:01:53.200
  • committed to killing Christians
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:55.100
  • and now he comes back as a
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.220
  • Christian to project an idea
  • 00:01:57.220 --> 00:02:00.090
  • that all of his friends would
  • 00:02:00.090 --> 00:02:01.270
  • have scoffed at.
  • 00:02:01.270 --> 00:02:02.270
  • As long as he was hating
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:04.150
  • Christians he was
  • 00:02:04.150 --> 00:02:06.050
  • expect--respected as a
  • 00:02:06.050 --> 00:02:07.190
  • theologian and a scholar and a
  • 00:02:07.190 --> 00:02:09.120
  • thinker, but now he has become
  • 00:02:09.120 --> 00:02:11.240
  • infected or affected by this
  • 00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:14.140
  • Christianity through something
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:16.070
  • that happened to him on a
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:17.090
  • Damascus road that had so
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:19.100
  • revolutionized his life, that it
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:21.220
  • compromised the respect of
  • 00:02:21.220 --> 00:02:23.070
  • other scholars of his era that
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:25.120
  • Paul would buy into such
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:26.220
  • foolishness and follow what's
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:28.170
  • considered ridiculous.
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:30.090
  • And whenever he started
  • 00:02:30.090 --> 00:02:31.080
  • preaching it amongst the
  • 00:02:31.080 --> 00:02:32.120
  • intellectuals they laughed at
  • 00:02:32.120 --> 00:02:34.120
  • him, but he preached it anyway.
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:38.060
  • Some places they stoned him, but
  • 00:02:38.060 --> 00:02:40.020
  • he preached it anyway.
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:41.220
  • Other places they beat him, but
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:43.080
  • he preached it anyway, and he
  • 00:02:43.080 --> 00:02:46.020
  • preached it on his way back to
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:48.130
  • Rome, and Paul went through the
  • 00:02:48.130 --> 00:02:50.190
  • greatest test on his way to
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:53.270
  • Rome, because until faith comes
  • 00:02:53.270 --> 00:02:56.200
  • home it doesn't matter where it
  • 00:02:57.040 --> 00:03:00.060
  • travels.
  • 00:03:00.120 --> 00:03:03.120
  • I'm gonna say that again.
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:04.140
  • Until faith comes home, it
  • 00:03:04.140 --> 00:03:06.110
  • doesn't matter where it travels.
  • 00:03:06.140 --> 00:03:09.140
  • The enemy doesn't mind you being
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:10.220
  • a Christian at The Potter's
  • 00:03:10.220 --> 00:03:11.240
  • House.
  • 00:03:11.240 --> 00:03:14.030
  • You get your praise on at The
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.170
  • Potter's House, get your dance
  • 00:03:15.170 --> 00:03:17.000
  • in at The Potter's House.
  • 00:03:17.000 --> 00:03:18.180
  • He doesn't want the faith that
  • 00:03:18.180 --> 00:03:20.030
  • you have here to go back home,
  • 00:03:20.030 --> 00:03:22.220
  • to be a part of your life, to be
  • 00:03:22.220 --> 00:03:24.190
  • a part of your character, to be
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:26.130
  • a part of your business, your
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:27.290
  • affairs, your thinking, and how
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:29.190
  • you interact with people.
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:31.010
  • He doesn't mind you playing
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:32.110
  • church for an hour or two once a
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:34.140
  • week, dancing and shouting and
  • 00:03:34.140 --> 00:03:37.020
  • whooping and hollering, as long
  • 00:03:37.020 --> 00:03:38.230
  • as you go home fussing and
  • 00:03:38.230 --> 00:03:40.050
  • cussing and fighting and
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:41.250
  • stressed out and nervous and
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:43.220
  • full of anxiety.
  • 00:03:43.220 --> 00:03:45.040
  • It's when you try to bring your
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:46.150
  • faith home that all hell breaks
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:49.040
  • On his way home he has to fight
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:57.200
  • off storms and hurricanes,
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:07.130
  • enemies seen and unseen, snakes,
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:10.180
  • serpents, destitution, and
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:12.090
  • death.
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.290
  • The closer he got to Rome, the
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:17.150
  • greater the test became.
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:18.000
  • The test often becomes greatest
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:19.100
  • The test has become great and
  • 00:04:24.030 --> 00:04:25.160
  • has become overwhelming because
  • 00:04:25.160 --> 00:04:27.280
  • Paul has come to Rome to deliver
  • 00:04:28.230 --> 00:04:31.230
  • a revolutionary idea that would
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:34.160
  • be life-changing, that would be
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:36.220
  • mesmerizing, that would be
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:38.250
  • absolutely awesome, that would
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:40.190
  • change the face of the faith of
  • 00:04:40.190 --> 00:04:43.180
  • an entire city, a world, a
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:46.080
  • generation, and generations to
  • 00:04:46.080 --> 00:04:47.260
  • come.
  • 00:04:47.260 --> 00:04:48.230
  • Paul comes to Rome to talk to
  • 00:04:49.060 --> 00:04:52.060
  • them about faith, and you get to
  • 00:04:52.060 --> 00:04:54.250
  • listen at his writings to Rome
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:57.220
  • in this text today, when he
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:05:00.050
  • begins to argue that Christ is
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:02.210
  • more than some guy who got
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:04.210
  • crucified, that he came to
  • 00:05:05.140 --> 00:05:08.140
  • deliver something that would set
  • 00:05:08.140 --> 00:05:10.080
  • us free before God, and he says
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:13.220
  • that the way to access God is by
  • 00:05:13.220 --> 00:05:16.110
  • faith.
  • 00:05:16.110 --> 00:05:17.060
  • It's not by baptism.
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:19.200
  • It's not by abstaining from
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:21.190
  • eating meats.
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:22.160
  • It's not by observing certain
  • 00:05:22.160 --> 00:05:24.050
  • days.
  • 00:05:24.050 --> 00:05:24.280
  • It's not by doing nice things
  • 00:05:24.280 --> 00:05:26.220
  • for poor people.
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:27.230
  • He said all of that is good, but
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:29.250
  • what really accesses this grace
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:32.160
  • is faith.
  • 00:05:32.160 --> 00:05:34.200
  • The enemy doesn't mind you
  • 00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:35.290
  • dancing and leaping and whooping
  • 00:05:35.290 --> 00:05:37.260
  • and hollering and running as
  • 00:05:37.260 --> 00:05:39.220
  • long as you don't believe.
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:42.230
  • I don't have to worry, "Is God
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:43.290
  • mad at me?"
  • 00:05:43.290 --> 00:05:44.290
  • I don't have to worry, "Is God
  • 00:05:44.290 --> 00:05:45.250
  • trying to kill me?"
  • 00:05:45.250 --> 00:05:47.040
  • I don't have to worry, "Is God
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:48.040
  • trying to destroy me?"
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:49.170
  • I don't have to worry, "Is God
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:50.180
  • my enemy?"
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:52.240
  • No, I have peace with God
  • 00:05:52.240 --> 00:05:55.090
  • because--not because I'm holy.
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:58.000
  • I have peace because I believe
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:01.150
  • by faith.
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:03.130
  • "Therefore being justified by
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:06.140
  • faith," not by dance, not by
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:09.080
  • shout, not by running, not by
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:12.070
  • hollering, not by beating a
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:14.030
  • tambourine.
  • 00:06:14.030 --> 00:06:15.110
  • By--
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:16.030
  • - Bishop Jakes: "Woman, if you
  • 00:06:20.220 --> 00:06:21.110
  • believe me, as the Scriptures
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:22.140
  • have said, then out of your
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:23.250
  • belly shall flow rivers of
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:25.270
  • living water."
  • 00:06:25.270 --> 00:06:27.010
  • Paul is preaching the power of
  • 00:06:27.010 --> 00:06:28.180
  • faith.
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:31.110
  • Before we were called Baptists,
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:33.110
  • and Presbyterian, and
  • 00:06:33.110 --> 00:06:34.290
  • Pentecostal, and Church of God,
  • 00:06:34.290 --> 00:06:36.280
  • and Church of God in Christ,
  • 00:06:36.280 --> 00:06:38.200
  • before we were called
  • 00:06:38.200 --> 00:06:40.090
  • Christians, we were called
  • 00:06:40.090 --> 00:06:42.030
  • believers, because if two of
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:45.280
  • them got in a city they would
  • 00:06:45.280 --> 00:06:47.230
  • Here he teaches that faith gives
  • 00:06:56.140 --> 00:06:58.130
  • me access.
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:07:01.000
  • Faith gives me access to the
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.200
  • grace I'm standing in right now.
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:04.270
  • Faith gives me access.
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:06.220
  • Faith is the door that gives me
  • 00:07:07.010 --> 00:07:10.010
  • access to the grace that I'm
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:12.120
  • standing in right now.
  • 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:13.230
  • How are you gonna get there?
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:14.250
  • By--
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:16.040
  • - all: Faith.
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.110
  • - Bishop Jakes: Yeah.
  • 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:19.020
  • How you gonna get healed?
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:20.130
  • By--
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:21.250
  • - all: Faith.
  • 00:07:21.250 --> 00:07:23.010
  • - Bishop Jakes: How are you
  • 00:07:23.010 --> 00:07:23.180
  • gonna survive?
  • 00:07:23.180 --> 00:07:24.180
  • By--
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:25.170
  • - Faith.
  • 00:07:25.170 --> 00:07:26.110

  • - Bishop Jakes: By faith, and
  • 00:07:38.280 --> 00:07:41.280
  • Paul teaches us some important
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:43.050
  • principles that we need to
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:44.200
  • understand, and so the enemy
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:46.190
  • is trying to stop the important
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:50.090
  • man from coming to an important
  • 00:07:51.120 --> 00:07:54.120
  • place.
  • 00:07:54.120 --> 00:07:56.090
  • And what we are seeing is the
  • 00:07:56.090 --> 00:07:58.070
  • detonation of the right person
  • 00:07:58.070 --> 00:08:01.080
  • in the right place at the right
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:03.050
  • time changes everything.
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:06.230
  • The right person in the right
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.140
  • place at the right time changes
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:11.170
  • everything.
  • 00:08:11.170 --> 00:08:12.190
  • The right person in the right
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:14.110
  • place at the right time changes
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:17.120
  • everything.
  • 00:08:17.120 --> 00:08:18.140
  • I'm gonna say it again.
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:19.100
  • The right person in the right
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.270
  • place at the right time changes
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:23.170
  • everything, that's why the enemy
  • 00:08:23.170 --> 00:08:25.210
  • wants you to be late, because if
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:28.170
  • he can't stop you from being the
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:30.040
  • right person, and he can't stop
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:32.020
  • you from going to the right
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:33.110
  • place, he doesn't want you to be
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:35.060
  • there at the right time.
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:36.190
  • He has done everything he could
  • 00:08:36.190 --> 00:08:39.110
  • to delay Paul from being the
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:41.230
  • right person at the right place
  • 00:08:41.230 --> 00:08:44.080
  • at the right time.
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:45.270

  • When you are the right person
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:51.260
  • and you are in the right place,
  • 00:08:51.260 --> 00:08:54.010
  • all you gotta do is say, "I'm
  • 00:08:54.010 --> 00:08:55.170
  • Touch your neighbor and say,
  • 00:09:07.050 --> 00:09:07.220
  • "Show up for the fight."

  • but show up for the fight.
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:17.080
  • They may not like you, but show
  • 00:09:17.080 --> 00:09:18.120
  • up for the fight.
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:19.170
  • They may have threatened you,

  • They may try to intimidate you,

  • I'm here.
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:28.140
  • God can't bless you if you're
  • 00:09:28.140 --> 00:09:30.050
  • not there.
  • 00:09:30.050 --> 00:09:31.140
  • Can I go deeper in this Word?
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:40.000
  • I want you to get this.
  • 00:09:40.000 --> 00:09:40.220
  • I want you to get this.
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:41.130
  • God gave me this for you.
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:44.130
  • He said, "By whom also we have
  • 00:09:44.130 --> 00:09:46.180
  • access by faith into this grace
  • 00:09:46.180 --> 00:09:48.120
  • wherein we stand, and rejoice in
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:50.120
  • hope of the glory of God."
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:52.220
  • He said we rejoice in hope of
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:55.000
  • the glory of God.
  • 00:09:55.000 --> 00:09:55.260
  • Now, this is easy.
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:09:58.040
  • We rejoice in hope of the glory
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:09:58.280
  • of God.
  • 00:09:58.280 --> 00:09:59.280
  • We rejoice.

  • glory of God.
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:06.130
  • When I start saying you are more
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:07.200
  • than a conqueror through him
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.070
  • that loved us, we rejoice in the

  • hope of the glory of God.

  • We do good rejoicing in the hope

  • of the glory of God.
  • 00:10:33.270 --> 00:10:35.050
  • We have survived because we
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:37.070
  • rejoice in hope.
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.180
  • When all hell is around us, we

  • where I'm at, but in the hope of
  • 00:10:54.000 --> 00:10:56.010
  • But here Paul argues.
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:04.000
  • He says that we must do more

  • than rejoice in the hope of the

  • glory of God.
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:08.180

  • learn--and this is hard--to
  • 00:11:10.050 --> 00:11:13.050

  • 00:14:28.120 --> 00:14:31.120
  • Jesus."
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:33.080
  • Just remember all that stuff you
  • 00:14:33.080 --> 00:14:34.130
  • said about other people's kids.
  • 00:14:34.130 --> 00:14:37.090
  • Remember what you said about
  • 00:14:37.090 --> 00:14:38.070
  • other people's marriages.
  • 00:14:38.070 --> 00:14:40.160
  • Remember.
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:41.080
  • Oh, y'all ain't gonna talk to
  • 00:14:41.080 --> 00:14:42.130
  • Now the love of God is shed
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:47.150
  • abroad in our hearts by the Holy
  • 00:14:47.150 --> 00:14:48.270
  • Ghost.
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:49.210
  • I gotta hurry up.
  • 00:14:49.210 --> 00:14:50.080
  • I'm running outta time.
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:51.060
  • Shout hallelujah, somebody.
  • 00:14:52.130 --> 00:14:55.130
  • "For when we were yet without
  • 00:14:56.130 --> 00:14:59.130
  • strength, in due time Christ
  • 00:15:01.210 --> 00:15:04.210
  • died for the ungodly."
  • 00:15:04.210 --> 00:15:07.150
  • When we were yet--when we were
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:15.070
  • yet without strength.
  • 00:15:18.290 --> 00:15:21.290
  • When we were yet without
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:26.260
  • strength.
  • 00:15:27.080 --> 00:15:30.080
  • Have you ever tried to open up a
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:31.140
  • bottle, and you couldn't open it
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:32.140
  • up?
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:34.230
  • You knew what you wanted, but
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:35.250
  • you didn't have enough strength.
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:39.080
  • We were--it's not that we're
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:40.110
  • without vision, but we were
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:45.250
  • without strength.
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:47.290
  • I knew what right was, but I
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:49.170
  • couldn't do it 'cause I was
  • 00:15:50.120 --> 00:15:53.120
  • without strength.
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:56.040
  • I knew I should have been a
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:57.100
  • better husband, but I couldn't
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:15:59.080
  • be it 'cause I was without
  • 00:15:59.210 --> 00:16:02.230
  • strength.
  • 00:16:02.230 --> 00:16:03.250
  • I know what a good wife looks
  • 00:16:03.250 --> 00:16:04.260
  • like, but I couldn't do it
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:06.240
  • because I was without strength.
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:09.040
  • I knew I was staying too late
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:11.050
  • for lunch.
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:12.010
  • I knew that it wasn't gonna be
  • 00:16:12.010 --> 00:16:12.290
  • cool for me to take a two-hour
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:14.050
  • lunch break.
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:15.110
  • I knew that I should have a
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:17.110
  • certain class about me and a
  • 00:16:17.110 --> 00:16:19.110
  • finesse when I went to work.
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:20.270
  • I knew I shouldn't have slapped
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:22.080
  • the woman on the elevator at
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:23.170
  • JC Penney's, but I was yet
  • 00:16:23.170 --> 00:16:25.200
  • without--I knew my temper got
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:30.170
  • outta control, but I was without
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:32.240
  • strength.
  • 00:16:32.240 --> 00:16:33.180
  • The Bible says when we were yet
  • 00:16:33.180 --> 00:16:36.010
  • without strength, when we had a
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:41.290
  • Now, I know you don't want
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:47.160
  • nobody to know that you got a
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:48.180
  • couldn't-help-it, but everybody
  • 00:16:48.180 --> 00:16:50.200
  • in here got a couldn't-help-it.
  • 00:16:50.200 --> 00:16:53.160
  • You don't testify about it, you
  • 00:16:53.160 --> 00:16:54.190
  • don't talk about it, you don't
  • 00:16:54.190 --> 00:16:55.250
  • want people to know about it,
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:57.040
  • unless they got the same
  • 00:16:57.040 --> 00:16:58.070
  • couldn't-help-it so y'all can't
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:16:59.160
  • Other than that, we don't talk
  • 00:17:03.170 --> 00:17:04.100
  • to people about what we can't
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:05.270
  • help, but while we had a
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:08.080
  • couldn't-help-it,
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:12.120
  • couldn't-fix-it,
  • 00:17:12.120 --> 00:17:14.160
  • couldn't-stop-it,
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:16.140
  • couldn't-break-it, Christ died
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:24.150
  • for us.
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:30.220
  • Christ died for weak, broken,
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:40.020
  • confused, afflicted, hurting,
  • 00:17:42.270 --> 00:17:45.270
  • limited people.
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:48.270
  • He did not die for people who
  • 00:17:48.270 --> 00:17:51.110
  • He died for Brother
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:17:58.280
  • Can't-help-it, for Sister
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:06.030
  • Can't-get-it-together, for Elder
  • 00:18:09.110 --> 00:18:12.110
  • Hothead, for Missionary
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:17.130
  • When we were yet without
  • 00:18:29.180 --> 00:18:32.180
  • strength, Christ died for us.
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:37.010
  • Lemme tell you why the church is
  • 00:18:37.010 --> 00:18:37.240
  • weak today.
  • 00:18:37.240 --> 00:18:39.260
  • The church is weak today because
  • 00:18:39.260 --> 00:18:41.050
  • Used to be I thought carnal
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:50.240
  • churches were churches that
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:51.240
  • didn't praise the Lord, but
  • 00:18:51.240 --> 00:18:52.200
  • that's not it.
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:53.210
  • That's not it.
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:54.080
  • That's not it.
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:55.060
  • No, no, no, no, no, that's not
  • 00:18:55.060 --> 00:18:55.240
  • it.
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:57.090
  • It is what you are praising him
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:58.210
  • for.
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:03.180
  • We are so carnal today that our
  • 00:19:03.180 --> 00:19:06.180
  • relationship with God fluctuates
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:10.140
  • When we need something done we
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:20.050
  • get real spiritual.
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:24.110
  • Soon as we get out of trouble we
  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:25.190
  • go back to what we were doing
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:26.240
  • Carnal relationships with God
  • 00:19:34.240 --> 00:19:37.240
  • based on circumstances and
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:38.290
  • people, who's in your life and
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:41.000
  • who walked outta your life, and
  • 00:19:41.010 --> 00:19:44.010
  • now you're coming to church
  • 00:19:44.010 --> 00:19:45.030
  • 'cause she going to church.
  • 00:19:46.080 --> 00:19:49.080
  • What happen when she leave you,
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:52.120
  • cheat on you?
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:53.290
  • God say, "How you like me now?
  • 00:19:54.010 --> 00:19:57.010
  • I wanna see were you serving me
  • 00:19:57.120 --> 00:20:00.120
  • Can I come on up with this?
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:09.090
  • I wanna explain to you why you
  • 00:20:09.090 --> 00:20:10.030
  • lose some stuff.
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:11.060
  • You lose some stuff 'cause you
  • 00:20:11.060 --> 00:20:12.060
  • worship some stuff.
  • 00:20:12.260 --> 00:20:15.260
  • You lose it because God is
  • 00:20:15.260 --> 00:20:17.020
  • jealous, and he said, "I will
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:19.140
  • have no other god before me, and
  • 00:20:19.140 --> 00:20:22.100
  • I will take you through some
  • 00:20:22.100 --> 00:20:23.160
  • stuff to see if you are praising
  • 00:20:23.160 --> 00:20:25.160
  • me because of him or because of
  • 00:20:25.160 --> 00:20:28.010
  • me, because of her or because of
  • 00:20:28.010 --> 00:20:30.120
  • me.
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:31.090
  • Are you praising me for the
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:32.100
  • house, or are you praising me
  • 00:20:32.100 --> 00:20:34.020
  • for me?
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:35.030
  • I'm gonna put you out of the
  • 00:20:39.160 --> 00:20:42.160
  • house and say, 'How you like me
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:46.080
  • now?'"
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:53.200
  • Reason we don't have no power
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:56.160
  • is that all we want from God is
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:20:57.270
  • stuff.
  • 00:20:58.020 --> 00:21:01.040
  • Do you remember--you're about my
  • 00:21:01.040 --> 00:21:02.180
  • age.
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:04.100
  • You remember when we used to
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:05.000
  • have prayer lines, and we called
  • 00:21:05.000 --> 00:21:07.090
  • people up, and there would be a
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:08.110
  • big line of people we'd be
  • 00:21:08.110 --> 00:21:09.110
  • praying for?
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:10.230
  • And people would be in the
  • 00:21:10.230 --> 00:21:11.150
  • prayer line, and you'd say,
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:12.080
  • "What do you want from the
  • 00:21:12.080 --> 00:21:12.270
  • Lord?"
  • 00:21:12.270 --> 00:21:14.050
  • And you'd get stuff like, "I
  • 00:21:14.050 --> 00:21:15.140
  • just wanna see my son saved."
  • 00:21:16.100 --> 00:21:19.100
  • "Oh, I'm standing in proxy for
  • 00:21:19.100 --> 00:21:22.010
  • my daughter.
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:23.240
  • I'm believing God to break
  • 00:21:23.240 --> 00:21:25.010
  • that--the--she's a drug addict,
  • 00:21:25.010 --> 00:21:27.270
  • but I'm believing God to break
  • 00:21:27.270 --> 00:21:29.190
  • that stronghold of addiction off
  • 00:21:29.190 --> 00:21:32.120
  • of her life, that she'll end up
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:34.180
  • saved and sanctified, praising
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:37.130
  • "What do you want prayer for?"
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:44.060
  • "I want a double anointing."
  • 00:21:44.060 --> 00:21:46.260
  • That's what they used to want, a
  • 00:21:46.260 --> 00:21:48.020
  • double anointing.
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:49.150
  • "I want a double portion of your
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:50.210
  • spirit."
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:51.240
  • "I'm believing God for the gift
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:53.010
  • of prophecy."
  • 00:21:53.010 --> 00:21:54.070
  • "I want the gift of healing."
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:56.010
  • "I want the gift of revelation."
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:58.270
  • Now when you call a prayer line,
  • 00:21:58.270 --> 00:22:01.090
  • "I'm believing God for a car."
  • 00:22:02.040 --> 00:22:05.040
  • "I'm believing God for my house
  • 00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:06.060
  • Now you don't see anybody
  • 00:22:13.200 --> 00:22:15.140
  • praying for souls to be saved.
  • 00:22:15.140 --> 00:22:17.200
  • "Let the kids go to hell.
  • 00:22:17.200 --> 00:22:19.190
  • That's why we don't have no
  • 00:22:28.010 --> 00:22:28.240
  • power.
  • 00:22:30.110 --> 00:22:33.110
  • That's why we don't have no
  • 00:22:33.110 --> 00:22:34.030
  • power.
  • 00:22:34.030 --> 00:22:35.100
  • We're not praying for our
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:36.090
  • children.
  • 00:22:36.090 --> 00:22:38.130
  • We're not praying for our
  • 00:22:38.130 --> 00:22:39.080
  • marriages.
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:41.080
  • We're so busy telling each other
  • 00:22:41.080 --> 00:22:42.250
  • off that we've stopped praying
  • 00:22:42.250 --> 00:22:45.160
  • for our marriages.
  • 00:22:45.160 --> 00:22:47.010
  • Until we go back to our roots,
  • 00:23:01.120 --> 00:23:04.120
  • until we go back to anointing
  • 00:23:04.120 --> 00:23:05.200
  • our house with oil, till we go
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:09.170
  • back to pleading the blood,
  • 00:23:10.210 --> 00:23:13.210
  • until we go back to laying hands
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:14.270
  • on our children, till we go back
  • 00:23:15.250 --> 00:23:18.250
  • to joining hands around the
  • 00:23:18.250 --> 00:23:20.050
  • dinner table and say, "Sickness,
  • 00:23:20.050 --> 00:23:22.230
  • you can't come in this family.
  • 00:23:22.230 --> 00:23:25.050
  • The blood of Jesus is against

  • you.

  • hold."
  • 00:23:29.020 --> 00:23:30.200
  • Until we come out of the closet
