  • is the monthly offer that we have

  • and let's get to know a little bit
  • 00:00:50.210 --> 00:00:53.020
  • of what this book is really chronicling.
  • 00:00:53.020 --> 00:00:55.160
  • Let's start at the beginning.
  • 00:00:55.160 --> 00:00:58.050
  • You wrote this book, really, as a testimony--
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:01:01.220
  • - Yes. - To what pathway
  • 00:01:01.220 --> 00:01:03.210
  • God took you on from sickness to health.
  • 00:01:03.210 --> 00:01:07.270
  • You want everyone to go from sickness to health.
  • 00:01:07.270 --> 00:01:10.270
  • - Or never to sickness,
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:12.080
  • that would be even better. - There you go,
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:13.070
  • it's even better.
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:14.220
  • So, start at the beginning, where does this journey start,
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:18.280
  • and how are we gonna help people tonight?
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:21.260
  • - Well, when you open the book,
  • 00:01:21.260 --> 00:01:23.170
  • I originally take people to Florida State University, 1994.
  • 00:01:23.170 --> 00:01:28.070
  • I talk about 80.000 fans at Doak Campbell Stadium
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:35.150
  • doing the tomahawk chop
  • 00:01:35.150 --> 00:01:37.160
  • where I was a college athlete, or rather a cheerleader.
  • 00:01:37.160 --> 00:01:41.180
  • I'll tell a funny aside.
  • 00:01:41.180 --> 00:01:43.090
  • My son, who is 15,
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:46.240
  • is an athlete, and he started playing football very young,
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:49.050
  • and he asked me one time as I was coaching,
  • 00:01:49.050 --> 00:01:50.250
  • "Dad, what position did you play?"
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:52.250
  • And then I had to tell him what every father dreads.
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:55.110
  • How do you tell your son you didn't play football
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:58.090
  • but rather you were a cheerleader?
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:01:59.250
  • So I did, and then later we're watching a college game
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:03.070
  • a year or two later,
  • 00:02:03.070 --> 00:02:04.220
  • and they show a shot of the cheerleaders with the pompoms,
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:06.270
  • and he's like, "Hey dad, isn't that what you did?"
  • 00:02:06.270 --> 00:02:09.230
  • It's what every father dreams of hearing from their son.
  • 00:02:09.230 --> 00:02:12.060
  • So I was a cheerleader at Florida State University,
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:14.280
  • it was an awesome experience.
  • 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:16.250
  • I was part of the second largest college ministry
  • 00:02:16.250 --> 00:02:19.130
  • in America at the time, we had 1.000 college students
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.290
  • and our own service, I was on fire for God,
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:24.220
  • I was in a traveling music group, just loving life,
  • 00:02:24.220 --> 00:02:28.170
  • and it seemed like overnight
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:31.080
  • I went from the immortal teenager,
  • 00:02:31.080 --> 00:02:34.230
  • healthy, passionate, I'd like to consider myself
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:37.160
  • somewhat the life of the party,
  • 00:02:37.160 --> 00:02:39.080
  • to symptoms of gut issues.
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:42.180
  • I was at a youth camp where I was a counselor,
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:44.230
  • the same camp I went to in high school in the summer,
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:47.120
  • and I started to have stomachaches,
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:49.090
  • and then I started to run to the bathroom,
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:52.180
  • and I lost weight, had a fever,
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:54.100
  • and that began a two year journey
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:57.260
  • that saw me go from six foot nearly one inch,
  • 00:02:57.260 --> 00:03:00.250
  • 185 pounds as a healthy teenager,
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:04.150
  • down to 104 pounds in a wheelchair,
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:07.260
  • diagnosed with Crohn's disease,
  • 00:03:07.260 --> 00:03:09.250
  • rheumatoid arthritis, and 17 other illnesses,
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:12.280
  • every infection known to man,
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:15.000
  • and I remember being in a hospital bed
  • 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:19.100
  • having doctors come in and out,
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:21.060
  • poking me, prodding me, saying things like,
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:24.030
  • "Well, we might be able to treat you,
  • 00:03:24.030 --> 00:03:26.120
  • "you'll need to be on medication,
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:27.270
  • "you might not be able to have children,"
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:29.260
  • putting me in this box, and I'm this teenager
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:32.150
  • who was on fire for God, I lived for God as a teenager,
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:35.110
  • I was very blessed to be in a great church
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:37.170
  • with a great youth group and a great set of peers,
  • 00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:40.200
  • and I'm thinking to myself,
  • 00:03:40.200 --> 00:03:43.100
  • "God promised that He had good plans for me
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:45.230
  • "to prosper my life, not to harm it,
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:48.110
  • "and give me a future and a hope."
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:50.050
  • And now I'm being told by men and women in lab coats
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:54.110
  • about the limitations and the box I would be in,
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:56.250
  • and it really started a journey that lasted two years.
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:04:00.260
  • I visited 69 medical experts,
  • 00:04:00.260 --> 00:04:04.020
  • conventional medicine failed,
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:07.080
  • all kinds of medications,
  • 00:04:07.080 --> 00:04:09.110
  • natural medicine, traveling around the world to Mexico,
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:12.280
  • doctors in England, Canada, all failed,
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:16.180
  • and ultimately I was, I would say I was at death's door
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:20.000
  • but I think it was half cracked open,
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:22.130
  • and I remember after my second hospitalization,
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:25.220
  • I went into the hospital at 104 pounds.
  • 00:04:25.220 --> 00:04:29.160
  • When the nurse opened up my shirt
  • 00:04:29.160 --> 00:04:31.200
  • I could see my heart pounding out of it.
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:34.160
  • My resting heart rate was over 250 beats per minute.
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:39.160
  • My iron level was a zero,
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:43.080
  • and I literally got rushed up to a room
  • 00:04:43.080 --> 00:04:47.260
  • and they were trying to give me an IV to rehydrate me
  • 00:04:47.260 --> 00:04:51.110
  • and nurse, doctor, phlebotomist,
  • 00:04:51.110 --> 00:04:54.100
  • they couldn't get any blood return,
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.260
  • and I remember lying in bed
  • 00:04:55.260 --> 00:04:57.280
  • and I heard a nurse who left the room,
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:05:01.130
  • she was very emotional and she said,
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:03.150
  • "This young man's not gonna make it 'til tomorrow."
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:06.150
  • And I can't explain adequately today
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:09.100
  • what it feels like to be dying,
  • 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:12.110
  • but I describe it as hanging onto a cliff by my pinkie,
  • 00:05:12.110 --> 00:05:17.110
  • and just ultimately realizing
  • 00:05:18.070 --> 00:05:19.150
  • that I don't know that I can do this anymore,
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:21.240
  • and here's the thought I had
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:23.250
  • as I wasn't able to get this hydrating IV
  • 00:05:23.250 --> 00:05:27.080
  • to just preserve my life,
  • 00:05:27.080 --> 00:05:28.230
  • I remember thinking, "Lord, I have had a great life."
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:31.110
  • I was able to go on mission trips,
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:33.050
  • I was able to minister to people
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:35.000
  • and see them come to know the Lord.
  • 00:05:35.000 --> 00:05:36.290
  • I had great friends and got to perform on stage
  • 00:05:36.290 --> 00:05:40.260
  • in music groups, but I remember thinking,
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:43.220
  • "Lord, I'm ready to go, I've had a great life,
  • 00:05:43.220 --> 00:05:46.040
  • "but I never had a chance to be married and have a family."
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:49.050
  • I was blessed to commit for that one woman
  • 00:05:49.050 --> 00:05:52.040
  • that would come into my life, and I saved myself,
  • 00:05:52.040 --> 00:05:55.060
  • and even at that point I just was ready
  • 00:05:55.060 --> 00:05:57.080
  • to go home and be with the Lord, and I closed my eyes
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:06:02.100
  • for what I thought was gonna be the last time.
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:04.280
  • They couldn't get blood return, they couldn't hydrate me,
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:07.010
  • and describing what that's like is really hard,
  • 00:06:07.010 --> 00:06:11.050
  • but since I'm here you understand I didn't die,
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:15.030
  • I woke up the next day, and I wasn't better.
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:18.020
  • They managed to get an IV in after four hours,
  • 00:06:18.020 --> 00:06:20.190
  • I had some water weight back,
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:23.010
  • but I was in the game, right?
  • 00:06:23.010 --> 00:06:24.080
  • I mean, so many times we need God
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:26.120
  • to get us all the way there,
  • 00:06:26.120 --> 00:06:28.130
  • or we don't think we're better.
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:30.230
  • I need my bank account to be full,
  • 00:06:30.230 --> 00:06:32.290
  • I need my relationship to be complete,
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:35.190
  • I need my kids to be exactly where I want 'em to be,
  • 00:06:35.190 --> 00:06:38.290
  • I need my diagnosis to be reversed.
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:40.170
  • But sometimes God just keeps us in the game.
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:43.280
  • "Yea though I walk through the valley
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:45.260
  • "of the shadow of death, I will not fear."
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:49.110
  • And so I was in the hospital, alive,
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:53.000
  • got out of the hospital,
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:54.150
  • coming off the medications I always had challenges,
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:57.140
  • hallucinated, crazy thoughts,
  • 00:06:57.140 --> 00:07:00.280
  • all kinds of stuff, just miserable,
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:03.020
  • but I was still alive,
  • 00:07:03.020 --> 00:07:04.170
  • and I remember friends would call me, I'm 19 years old,
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:07.240
  • my friends would call me and say, "Can I come visit you?"
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:10.200
  • And when you have Crohn's disease,
  • 00:07:10.200 --> 00:07:12.230
  • what I was diagnosed with, it's an embarrassing disease.
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:15.110
  • I mean, who wants to tell someone
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:16.160
  • you're in the bathroom 30 times a day?
  • 00:07:16.160 --> 00:07:18.100
  • And I looked like death, I was in a wheelchair.
  • 00:07:18.100 --> 00:07:21.030
  • Any time I left the house
  • 00:07:21.030 --> 00:07:22.280
  • nobody wanted to come towards me,
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:24.180
  • they thought, "God forbid, what if he has
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.260
  • "some disease I could catch," you know.
  • 00:07:26.260 --> 00:07:29.260
  • I had a friend who was persistent,
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:31.140
  • and uninvited she came over,
  • 00:07:31.140 --> 00:07:33.280
  • and at the time I was so weak and sick
  • 00:07:33.280 --> 00:07:36.220
  • I couldn't see straight enough to read the Bible,
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:39.270
  • and so she said, "Can I read to you?"
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:42.230
  • And she came upon a verse that I had memorized,
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:45.140
  • learned in Sunday School, read a thousand times,
  • 00:07:45.140 --> 00:07:48.140
  • but God spoke to me in a new way,
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:50.020
  • and it said, Hebrews 11:1,
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:52.170
  • "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
  • 00:07:52.170 --> 00:07:56.180
  • "the evidence of things not seen."
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:58.200
  • And this is funny, I'm just now remembering this
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:08:00.180
  • because of the connection.
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:02.160
  • I read a book during that time, before my eyes got so bad,
  • 00:08:02.160 --> 00:08:05.220
  • called "Combat Faith" by Hal Lindsey,
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:07.220
  • it's just now, I've never even said this on the air
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:10.000
  • when I tell the story,
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.070
  • but I know you all have a long history,
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:13.100
  • and it talked about faith,
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:15.250
  • it talked about how faith comes by hearing the word of God,
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:19.190
  • without faith it is impossible to please God,
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:22.170
  • and faith without action or works is dead.
  • 00:08:22.170 --> 00:08:27.040
  • Now, here I am in bed in my parents' home
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:31.030
  • being taken care of like an infant.
  • 00:08:31.030 --> 00:08:32.260
  • I went to college, had to medically withdraw,
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:35.040
  • I didn't expect to live with my parents again
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:37.040
  • and be in this situation,
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:39.060
  • this living hell, this prison that was my body,
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:43.240
  • I couldn't escape from it.
  • 00:08:43.240 --> 00:08:45.240
  • I couldn't sleep more than 45 minutes.
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:47.250
  • I would play my favorite CD at the time,
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:51.250
  • it was Steven Curtis Chapman's, one of his early albums,
  • 00:08:51.250 --> 00:08:55.000
  • and there was a song called "Hiding Place,"
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:57.050
  • and as I would try to sleep I'd play it on loop.
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:09:00.030
  • I wanted to hide and get away from this prison,
  • 00:09:00.030 --> 00:09:04.060
  • and every day was the same, every minute was the same,
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:07.070
  • there was no remission,
  • 00:09:07.070 --> 00:09:08.290
  • and I just was absolutely miserable.
  • 00:09:08.290 --> 00:09:12.120
  • But when my friend was reading to me
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:14.130
  • and I was understanding this faith message,
  • 00:09:14.130 --> 00:09:17.240
  • God said that I had to have faith,
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:19.130
  • He told me, "Have faith," and I was arguing with the Lord.
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:22.140
  • "What can I do, I'm sick, I can barely walk."
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:25.110
  • There were times when I would walk to the bathroom
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:28.040
  • and my mom or dad would find me face down,
  • 00:09:28.040 --> 00:09:30.230
  • I would black out due to the extreme anemia,
  • 00:09:30.230 --> 00:09:33.230
  • glasses broken, just, I was just
  • 00:09:33.230 --> 00:09:37.000
  • at the epitome of brokenness, nothing,
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:41.280
  • I would read Psalms in the 40s and feel like David,
  • 00:09:41.280 --> 00:09:46.040
  • I'm poured out like water, my bones are broken,
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:49.020
  • and here it was God telling me to have faith.
  • 00:09:49.020 --> 00:09:51.250
  • I argued with Him, "Well what can I do?"
  • 00:09:53.030 --> 00:09:55.070
  • 'Cause we say, well Lord,
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:56.150
  • when I'm better I'll share my testimony.
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:10:00.040
  • When my money's back in the bank account
  • 00:10:00.040 --> 00:10:02.200
  • I'll tell everyone that You're the provider.
  • 00:10:02.200 --> 00:10:04.180
  • When my husband or wife comes back home
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:07.160
  • I'll talk about, You're the redeemer of relationships,
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:11.140
  • but God said to me, "Faith is not hindsight.
  • 00:10:11.140 --> 00:10:16.020
  • "Faith is proclaiming the mountaintop
  • 00:10:16.020 --> 00:10:17.290
  • "when you're lying face down naked in the valley."
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:20.290
  • Now, I know this is a program we're gonna talk about health,
  • 00:10:20.290 --> 00:10:23.150
  • but it's really about faith,
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:25.040
  • and I knew what God wanted me to do.
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:27.260
  • There was a pantry or a closet
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:31.040
  • that was between the room I stayed in and the bathroom,
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:33.280
  • and I'd walked that path before, seven steps,
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:37.090
  • and I'd fainted many times,
  • 00:10:37.090 --> 00:10:39.170
  • but this time I took those steps
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:41.240
  • and I started yelling for my mom, I said, "Mom!"
  • 00:10:41.240 --> 00:10:44.180
  • And she said, "What is it?" thinking something was wrong.
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:47.060
  • I said, "I need you to take my picture."
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:49.230
  • I was in my boxers and nothing else.
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:52.080
  • My skin was sorta dark
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:54.080
  • 'cause I couldn't shower very often
  • 00:10:54.080 --> 00:10:55.240
  • 'cause I couldn't stand up long enough,
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:57.090
  • I had an ugly lookin' beard, not 'cause it was fashionable
  • 00:10:57.090 --> 00:11:00.020
  • but because I couldn't lose any blood
  • 00:11:00.020 --> 00:11:02.150
  • so I couldn't cut myself.
  • 00:11:02.150 --> 00:11:03.220
  • You don't think about these things, right?
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:05.220
  • My mom said, "Jordan, I don't wanna take your picture.
  • 00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:08.210
  • "It breaks my heart to look at you.
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:11.030
  • "Can't we wait 'til you're better?"
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:13.060
  • And I said, "Mom, you need to take this picture."
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:14.270
  • She said, "Why do you insist?"
  • 00:11:14.270 --> 00:11:16.120
  • And I said, "Mom, you need to take this picture
  • 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:18.260
  • "because the world's not going to believe
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:21.030
  • "what God's about to do in my life."
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:24.000
  • And I sat on a similar set to this 15 years ago
  • 00:11:24.000 --> 00:11:28.290
  • sharing the same story in a little bit of a different way,
  • 00:11:30.120 --> 00:11:32.000
  • the first time I appeared on Praise
  • 00:11:32.000 --> 00:11:34.090
  • out of the Atlanta studio.
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:35.230
  • I remember today getting letters,
  • 00:11:37.050 --> 00:11:39.290
  • this was back then when people wrote letters,
  • 00:11:39.290 --> 00:11:42.210
  • email was just starting up,
  • 00:11:42.210 --> 00:11:44.220
  • and people would say, "Jordan, I love your book."
  • 00:11:44.220 --> 00:11:47.240
  • We were talkin' about my Maker's Diet book.
  • 00:11:47.240 --> 00:11:49.030
  • "I love your message, but you gave me hope,
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:52.290
  • "because if you could get well,
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:55.210
  • "you're worse than me, or your sickness,
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.200
  • "then I can get well."
  • 00:11:58.200 --> 00:11:59.280
  • And so here I am, my mom snaps a picture,
  • 00:11:59.280 --> 00:12:03.230
  • and I can't explain how valuable that was to me.
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:07.000
  • That instant, because this was before digital photos,
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:11.190
  • that has changed my entire life.
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:13.090
  • Now, I didn't go to sleep that night and wake up better,
  • 00:12:13.090 --> 00:12:16.030
  • it wasn't an instantaneous healing,
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:17.220
  • but months later I met a man who told me
  • 00:12:17.220 --> 00:12:22.100
  • that if I will follow a health plan based on the Bible,
  • 00:12:22.100 --> 00:12:25.200
  • if I will live it, eat it, drink it, and breathe it,
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:28.080
  • I will be well,
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:29.170
  • and he told me that if I will leave South Florida
  • 00:12:29.170 --> 00:12:32.070
  • and stay with him in San Diego,
  • 00:12:32.070 --> 00:12:34.100
  • in three months I'll be working out on the beach.
  • 00:12:35.230 --> 00:12:38.110
  • I can't explain why, but I believed.
  • 00:12:38.110 --> 00:12:42.130
  • Faith turned into hope,
  • 00:12:42.130 --> 00:12:44.270
  • and I said to my mom and dad, "I gotta go,"
  • 00:12:44.270 --> 00:12:47.290
  • and they said, "Can you make the trip?
  • 00:12:47.290 --> 00:12:49.100
  • "You're in a wheelchair, thousands of miles."
  • 00:12:49.100 --> 00:12:52.240
  • And I looked at my mom and dad and I said,
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:55.010
  • "I am going there physically sick,
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:57.290
  • "but I'm gonna return well."
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:12:59.190
  • - What we're talking about is "Patient Heal Thyself"
  • 00:13:01.050 --> 00:13:04.270
  • and Jordan, this is your journey.
  • 00:13:04.270 --> 00:13:07.040
  • The story from really horrible sickness
  • 00:13:08.080 --> 00:13:13.060
  • to health was chronicled in your book,
  • 00:13:14.150 --> 00:13:18.010
  • it is our monthly gift offer.
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:20.000
  • The name "Patient Heal Thyself," how did you get that title?
  • 00:13:20.000 --> 00:13:23.290
  • - Well, there's obviously a reprimand from Jesus
  • 00:13:23.290 --> 00:13:28.070
  • to the Pharisees in the Bible
  • 00:13:28.070 --> 00:13:29.130
  • that says, "Physician heal thyself,"
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:31.200
  • which is in other words,
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:32.280
  • you're preaching, but you haven't practiced.
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:35.210
  • And I learned through 69 medical experts,
  • 00:13:35.210 --> 00:13:39.160
  • I learned through being promised the world
  • 00:13:39.160 --> 00:13:43.020
  • and practically being out of this world
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:46.220
  • due to a lack of health in my body
  • 00:13:46.220 --> 00:13:49.170
  • and the imminent death that was always staring me down,
  • 00:13:49.170 --> 00:13:52.240
  • that no human being was going to help me.
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:56.160
  • I was the patient,
  • 00:13:56.160 --> 00:13:58.100
  • but I had to make the decision to be healed,
  • 00:13:58.100 --> 00:14:00.230
  • and it started with faith,
  • 00:14:00.230 --> 00:14:02.220
  • and then action came into it,
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:06.010
  • and I learned not only how to get well
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:09.070
  • but to do it biblically,
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:10.180
  • because the 69 treatments I tried,
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:14.190
  • some were medications, some were crazy gadgets,
  • 00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:17.160
  • gizmos, lotions, and potions, and I mean crazy,
  • 00:14:17.160 --> 00:14:21.040
  • you would laugh and cry at the same time.
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:24.100
  • But I knew when I talked to this man named Bud
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:28.250
  • who told me that the hidden secrets to my health
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:32.100
  • were out of the pages of the Bible,
  • 00:14:32.100 --> 00:14:34.120
  • the book I read every day,
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:36.110
  • I knew immediately that God wanted to heal me
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:38.160
  • not just any old way, but through His word
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:42.110
  • with a testimony that you can't deny,
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:44.030
  • and I have this amazing before and after picture
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:46.160
  • that's on the front of my book cover,
  • 00:14:46.160 --> 00:14:47.250
  • "Patient Heal Thyself,"
  • 00:14:47.250 --> 00:14:49.290
  • and like the blind man in the Bible,
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:52.230
  • you might not like what I say about health,
  • 00:14:52.230 --> 00:14:54.250
  • you might not like what I know or don't know
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:58.010
  • about these principles or this man that healed me,
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:15:01.010
  • but what I do know is this,
  • 00:15:01.010 --> 00:15:02.130
  • once I was dying and now I'm alive,
  • 00:15:02.130 --> 00:15:05.140
  • and it's so hard to believe this was nearly 23 years ago
  • 00:15:05.140 --> 00:15:10.080
  • that I overcame, I have not been on a medicine since,
  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:13.120
  • and I've been blessed to have a prophecy
  • 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:16.060
  • that I spoke over myself come true.
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:17.250
  • When I was at my worst,
  • 00:15:17.250 --> 00:15:19.260
  • I was able to say out loud,
  • 00:15:19.260 --> 00:15:22.070
  • "Lord, I don't know why I'm here.
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.260
  • "I lost everything, I had to leave my friends,
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:26.220
  • "withdraw from school, and now I'm being taken care of,
  • 00:15:26.220 --> 00:15:31.170
  • "and I'm on everyone's prayer request list,
  • 00:15:31.170 --> 00:15:33.110
  • "and my parents cry and their hearts are breaking
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:35.190
  • "because of me, I feel responsible.
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:38.190
  • "But ultimately, Lord, if I can help just one person
  • 00:15:38.190 --> 00:15:42.290
  • "overcome disease, or better yet avoid it
  • 00:15:42.290 --> 00:15:45.190
  • "when You heal me, this will all be worth it."
  • 00:15:46.240 --> 00:15:49.060
  • And coming out of this journey,
  • 00:15:49.060 --> 00:15:52.050
  • and 40 days of this biblical health program
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:55.110
  • which I lay out in "Patient Heal Thyself"
  • 00:15:55.110 --> 00:15:58.000
  • I went from death to life,
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:16:00.230
  • from sickness to health,
  • 00:16:00.230 --> 00:16:02.210
  • and from mess to messenger,
  • 00:16:02.210 --> 00:16:05.000
  • and I committed my life, even before I went,
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:08.100
  • to sharing with one person what the Lord did for me,
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:11.070
  • and when I got well
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:13.230
  • I literally, exactly what this man Bud Keith said,
  • 00:16:13.230 --> 00:16:16.180
  • I went from being 100 and change
  • 00:16:16.180 --> 00:16:20.290
  • to full health, working out on the beach,
  • 00:16:20.290 --> 00:16:24.260
  • in front of Crystal Pier in San Diego, California,
  • 00:16:24.260 --> 00:16:27.170
  • which is the after picture, I call it.
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:31.080
  • I wanted to tell people,
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:33.150
  • and back then my favorite possession
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:36.220
  • was a photocopy of this before picture
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:39.020
  • that I kept in my pocket.
  • 00:16:39.020 --> 00:16:40.160
  • Everyone I would meet,
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:42.070
  • immediately they would wanna know about me
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:44.020
  • and I'd pull this out and I would say, "This is who I was."
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:46.210
  • And it's funny, my wife Nicki,
  • 00:16:46.210 --> 00:16:48.120
  • who you all have spent time with,
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:50.080
  • she will tell you a story,
  • 00:16:50.080 --> 00:16:51.290
  • because incidentally I did get married,
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:54.170
  • I have a wonderful family, six children, five are adopted.
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:57.280
  • I have been able to reach people
  • 00:16:57.280 --> 00:17:00.260
  • the world over for a message of health, but also hope,
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:05.220
  • and my wife will tell people
  • 00:17:05.220 --> 00:17:08.070
  • when we met at the young adults
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:12.030
  • at our church in Florida at the time,
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:14.010
  • Palm Beach Gardens Christ Fellowship,
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:16.000
  • the first time we talked
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:17.280
  • I pulled out this photocopy of a before picture
  • 00:17:17.280 --> 00:17:20.280
  • and I said, "This is who I was."
  • 00:17:20.280 --> 00:17:23.000
  • And it wasn't just so she could think
  • 00:17:23.000 --> 00:17:24.180
  • I looked really good now, right,
  • 00:17:24.180 --> 00:17:25.250
  • like here's me before, I look much better now,
  • 00:17:25.250 --> 00:17:29.080
  • but that was just into a year of me being well,
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:33.140
  • and I began sharing my testimony.
  • 00:17:33.140 --> 00:17:35.100
  • I stocked shelves at a health food store.
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:37.280
  • I just did whatever I could,
  • 00:17:37.280 --> 00:17:39.260
  • and I even saw people come into the health food store
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:42.080
  • that were desperate for health,
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:44.080
  • their children had allergies,
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:45.250
  • their father had arthritis, their wife had breast cancer,
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:49.060
  • and I didn't know a lot,
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:51.220
  • but I'd recommend a food, or a beverage, or a book,
  • 00:17:51.220 --> 00:17:54.120
  • but I'd say, "Listen, I don't know what it's like
  • 00:17:54.120 --> 00:17:57.090
  • "to suffer from psoriasis, but I was really sick.
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:59.190
  • "I believe this will help you, try it."
  • 00:17:59.190 --> 00:18:02.020
  • And they would come back two, three weeks later
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:04.170
  • and say, "Do you remember me?
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:05.240
  • "I'm the person that had the child with asthma,
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:08.120
  • "I'm the person that had the father with arthritis,
  • 00:18:08.120 --> 00:18:10.260
  • "now I'm better."
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:12.020
  • I'd get big hugs, and I'm 22 years old.
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:15.040
  • I didn't have initials after my name,
  • 00:18:15.040 --> 00:18:17.250
  • didn't have a doctorate, never wrote a book,
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:19.190
  • never gave a seminar, I had a testimony.
  • 00:18:19.190 --> 00:18:22.230
  • And the Lord took me from there
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:26.130
  • to writing "Patient Heal Thyself."
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:29.290
  • And "Patient Heal Thyself," by the way, is my first book,
  • 00:18:29.290 --> 00:18:32.050
  • this is an expanded and updated edition,
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:34.160
  • but here's what's great,
  • 00:18:34.160 --> 00:18:36.090
  • when you find the truth, it doesn't need a lot of updating.
  • 00:18:36.090 --> 00:18:39.180
  • And when Destiny Image Publisher reached out
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:43.010
  • and says "We wanna launch
  • 00:18:43.010 --> 00:18:44.120
  • "'Patient Heal Thyself' to the world,"
  • 00:18:44.120 --> 00:18:45.240
  • and the two of you said,
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:47.120
  • "We wanna bring 'Patient Heal Thyself' to people,"
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:50.240
  • it was exciting because this is not just my life,
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:54.110
  • but this could be your life.
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:55.290
  • And people read this, this is so cool.
  • 00:18:55.290 --> 00:18:58.160
  • We have been blessed over the years not only to write books
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:01.280
  • and to preach at conferences around the world,
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:04.100
  • I've been on TBN and had multiple programs
  • 00:19:04.100 --> 00:19:06.200
  • that Matt's previous company produced,
  • 00:19:06.200 --> 00:19:09.160
  • and been with you all in many places,
  • 00:19:09.160 --> 00:19:12.090
  • but I had started a company with my colleague,
  • 00:19:12.090 --> 00:19:16.110
  • Dr. Josh Axe, who's been on programs with us,
  • 00:19:16.110 --> 00:19:18.220
  • and we just hired a new copywriter,
  • 00:19:18.220 --> 00:19:21.240
  • and on my calendar there was an appointment
  • 00:19:21.240 --> 00:19:24.000
  • to meet with her, and she came and met with me,
  • 00:19:24.000 --> 00:19:26.010
  • and I though maybe learning about our products
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:28.150
  • or understanding our philosophy.
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:30.210
  • She said, "Jordan, can we close the door?"
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:32.280
  • And she went on to tell me about her journey
  • 00:19:32.280 --> 00:19:35.100
  • through ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:37.090
  • She was crying, and she said,
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:39.060
  • "When I read your book I was weeping,
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:41.180
  • "because nobody understands what I've been through."
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:44.060
  • And by the way, if you're watching
  • 00:19:44.060 --> 00:19:45.190
  • and you think this is about Crohn's disease
  • 00:19:45.190 --> 00:19:47.060
  • or ulcerative colitis, it's not.
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:48.230
  • If you have cancer, if you have ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease,
  • 00:19:48.230 --> 00:19:52.270
  • multiple sclerosis, if your children have autism,
  • 00:19:52.270 --> 00:19:55.140
  • the principles that I learned
  • 00:19:55.140 --> 00:19:57.000
  • can help everyone, and has helped everyone.
  • 00:19:58.050 --> 00:20:01.050
  • We've had stories of people that have read this book
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:04.150
  • and conceived when they were infertile.
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:06.210
  • I've had people with all stages and all types of cancer.
  • 00:20:06.210 --> 00:20:10.250
  • This book has reached millions of people,
  • 00:20:10.250 --> 00:20:15.070
  • but this is the first time
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:17.030
  • that a worldwide television audience is hearing about it,
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:20.200
  • because in "Patient Heal Thyself"
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:22.070
  • not only do I talk about the importance
  • 00:20:22.070 --> 00:20:24.030
  • of digestion to your overall health,
  • 00:20:24.030 --> 00:20:26.220
  • not only do I talk about things such as probiotics,
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:30.090
  • and mushrooms from Asia that boost your immune system,
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:33.270
  • but I talk about a diet called the Maker's Diet,
  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:36.270
  • and I give a program that people can follow
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:40.010
  • that can allow God in body, mind, and spirit to heal them,
  • 00:20:40.010 --> 00:20:43.180
  • and to be honest, I have not talked about my story
  • 00:20:43.180 --> 00:20:47.260
  • in quite some time, the reason being
  • 00:20:47.260 --> 00:20:49.200
  • is that over the years sort of your roles change,
  • 00:20:49.200 --> 00:20:53.050
  • and I've been blessed to support Dr. Josh Axe
  • 00:20:53.050 --> 00:20:57.020
  • in his endeavors, writing powerful books,
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:20:59.200
  • and we create products together,
  • 00:20:59.200 --> 00:21:01.070
  • but my dream to help just one person overcome disease,
  • 00:21:01.070 --> 00:21:05.000
  • or better yet avoid it, is being lived out right now,
  • 00:21:05.000 --> 00:21:08.170
  • like, there is somebody watching right now that is desperate
  • 00:21:08.170 --> 00:21:12.050
  • and it isn't about a zinc deficiency, or vitamin D,
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:15.180
  • or needing to find this herb, it's about hope,
  • 00:21:15.180 --> 00:21:18.000
  • and I promise you there is no human being
  • 00:21:18.000 --> 00:21:21.060
  • that is unhealable, if that was a word.
  • 00:21:21.060 --> 00:21:23.170
  • No one's beyond healing.
  • 00:21:23.170 --> 00:21:24.290
  • - So, Jordan Rubin,
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:26.200

  • or write to TBN today.
  • 00:23:35.210 --> 00:23:38.100
  • - One of the things that what you're really talking about
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:41.070
  • is really doing it God's way, okay.
  • 00:23:41.070 --> 00:23:46.070
  • So I liked what you said just a minute ago,
  • 00:23:46.070 --> 00:23:48.220
  • this isn't a discussion right now
  • 00:23:48.220 --> 00:23:51.160
  • about health as it is about faith,
  • 00:23:51.160 --> 00:23:55.040
  • and putting your faith in God's word
  • 00:23:55.040 --> 00:23:58.150
  • which is what you did for 40 days there in,
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:24:01.240
  • and I wanna ask you a few questions
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:03.070
  • about that. - You know what,
  • 00:24:03.070 --> 00:24:04.050
  • I love what you said, though.
  • 00:24:04.050 --> 00:24:05.130
  • you said I want a picture right now,
  • 00:24:05.130 --> 00:24:08.010
  • because now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
  • 00:24:08.010 --> 00:24:11.220
  • the evidence of things not seen.
  • 00:24:11.220 --> 00:24:13.230
  • So take a picture of me now, because this is my testimony.
  • 00:24:13.230 --> 00:24:17.230
  • Me at my worst is where it all starts.
  • 00:24:17.230 --> 00:24:22.040
  • I think if we can look at ourselves and our circumstances
  • 00:24:22.040 --> 00:24:26.050
  • and find out, you know, you might be at the low of your low,
  • 00:24:26.050 --> 00:24:29.090
  • this is the beginning of a testimony.
  • 00:24:29.090 --> 00:24:31.280
  • This is the story.
  • 00:24:31.280 --> 00:24:33.230
  • The victory isn't told without the fight, you know,
  • 00:24:33.230 --> 00:24:37.260
  • and so I love that, I love that you said that,
  • 00:24:37.260 --> 00:24:40.250
  • because we all have a testimony.
  • 00:24:40.250 --> 00:24:43.100
  • So to see, you know,
  • 00:24:43.100 --> 00:24:44.290
  • your circumstances might just be horrible right now,
  • 00:24:44.290 --> 00:24:47.050
  • but you know what, it's the beginning of a testimony.
  • 00:24:47.050 --> 00:24:49.210
  • - You can't have a healing without a sickness.
  • 00:24:49.210 --> 00:24:52.090
  • We celebrate a resurrection,
  • 00:24:52.090 --> 00:24:53.230
  • but you can't have a resurrection
  • 00:24:53.230 --> 00:24:55.010
  • without a grueling, grizzly, ugly death,
  • 00:24:55.010 --> 00:24:59.130
  • and the word of God says that I will,
  • 00:24:59.130 --> 00:25:02.110
  • I'm not gonna boast, but if I do boast
  • 00:25:02.110 --> 00:25:04.130
  • I will boast about my weaknesses
  • 00:25:04.130 --> 00:25:06.230
  • so the power of Christ may dwell in me.
  • 00:25:06.230 --> 00:25:09.080
  • Now, we tend to talk about ourselves in a negative way,
  • 00:25:09.080 --> 00:25:13.090
  • you know, I'm sick, I'm this,
  • 00:25:13.090 --> 00:25:15.060
  • that's not what I'm talkin' about,
  • 00:25:15.060 --> 00:25:16.140
  • I'm not talking about going out and saying,
  • 00:25:16.140 --> 00:25:17.250
  • "I've got cancer, I'm diabetic, my child's autistic."
  • 00:25:17.250 --> 00:25:21.030
  • That bothers me,
  • 00:25:21.030 --> 00:25:22.120
  • because I don't believe we should speak that,
  • 00:25:22.120 --> 00:25:24.230
  • but what we do say is, "Here I am,
  • 00:25:24.230 --> 00:25:28.200
  • "but I'm about to be healed."
  • 00:25:28.200 --> 00:25:29.270
  • Take a picture of your bank statement
  • 00:25:29.270 --> 00:25:31.280
  • when there's nothing in it,
  • 00:25:31.280 --> 00:25:33.170
  • because there is someone who needs to hear this,
  • 00:25:33.170 --> 00:25:37.090
  • and when I hear somebody reading "Patient Heal Thyself"
  • 00:25:37.090 --> 00:25:40.270
  • and saying, "Jordan, that's me.
  • 00:25:40.270 --> 00:25:42.060
  • "Maybe I didn't have the same disease,
  • 00:25:42.060 --> 00:25:43.160
  • "but I was told I was gonna die,
  • 00:25:43.160 --> 00:25:45.180
  • "I knew that my family suffered because of me,
  • 00:25:45.180 --> 00:25:48.070
  • "I didn't have anywhere to turn,
  • 00:25:48.070 --> 00:25:49.160
  • "I spent all this money trying to get well."
  • 00:25:49.160 --> 00:25:52.160
  • That's the hope, and I knew somehow
  • 00:25:53.210 --> 00:25:57.100
  • that that picture could never be replaced.
  • 00:25:57.100 --> 00:25:59.280
  • You can't replace
  • 00:25:59.280 --> 00:26:01.230
  • when you are cornered and boxed in, nowhere to go.
  • 00:26:01.230 --> 00:26:05.060
  • I could tell you stories during my illness
  • 00:26:05.060 --> 00:26:07.220
  • where I should've been so dead.
  • 00:26:07.220 --> 00:26:09.280
  • I mean I'm literally,
  • 00:26:09.280 --> 00:26:11.050
  • and this is, again, somewhat comical,
  • 00:26:11.050 --> 00:26:13.040
  • but I was in a clinic in Germany trying to get well,
  • 00:26:13.040 --> 00:26:16.150
  • and I was so, so sick.
  • 00:26:16.150 --> 00:26:19.020
  • My mom was a school teacher
  • 00:26:19.020 --> 00:26:20.140
  • and we had spent so much money, my family, on my healing
  • 00:26:20.140 --> 00:26:22.290
  • she had to fly home,
  • 00:26:22.290 --> 00:26:24.280
  • and she cried for an entire flight home from Europe
  • 00:26:24.280 --> 00:26:27.140
  • because she didn't know if she was ever gonna see me again.
  • 00:26:27.140 --> 00:26:30.220
  • Like, I was in a clinic in Germany
  • 00:26:30.220 --> 00:26:32.280
  • struggling, suffering, I was sick all the time,
  • 00:26:32.280 --> 00:26:37.110
  • the treatment wasn't working,
  • 00:26:37.110 --> 00:26:38.110
  • I could barely get out of there
  • 00:26:38.110 --> 00:26:39.270
  • when it was finally time to come home.
  • 00:26:39.270 --> 00:26:41.250
  • I remember leaving that clinic stumbling,
  • 00:26:41.250 --> 00:26:44.240
  • I tripped on the way out 'cause I was so weak,
  • 00:26:44.240 --> 00:26:46.230
  • I fell flat on my face, all bloody,
  • 00:26:46.230 --> 00:26:48.280
  • and I get into a taxi,
  • 00:26:48.280 --> 00:26:51.260
  • and they take me to this small German airport.
  • 00:26:51.260 --> 00:26:53.260
  • I couldn't speak the language.
  • 00:26:53.260 --> 00:26:55.250
  • I get there, I'm in a wheelchair,
  • 00:26:55.250 --> 00:26:58.140
  • I had my parents' credit card.
  • 00:26:58.140 --> 00:27:00.180
  • It was declined, they didn't have record of my ticket,
  • 00:27:00.180 --> 00:27:02.250
  • I couldn't speak English,
  • 00:27:02.250 --> 00:27:04.020
  • I couldn't call anyone to go back to the clinic
  • 00:27:04.020 --> 00:27:06.070
  • because this was in the '90s,
  • 00:27:06.070 --> 00:27:08.030
  • we didn't have cell phones,
  • 00:27:08.030 --> 00:27:09.160
  • and I was sitting in a wheelchair,
  • 00:27:09.160 --> 00:27:10.280
  • and I just, "Lord, I have nothing,
  • 00:27:10.280 --> 00:27:14.080
  • "I can't go anywhere, I don't have any money,
  • 00:27:14.080 --> 00:27:16.150
  • "I can't speak the language, and I'm dying."
  • 00:27:16.150 --> 00:27:20.210
  • And those are the moments that God says we boast about,
  • 00:27:20.210 --> 00:27:25.000
  • like I had nowhere to go.
  • 00:27:25.000 --> 00:27:27.140
  • I couldn't even get on my knees
  • 00:27:27.140 --> 00:27:28.210
  • because I would've fallen down,
  • 00:27:28.210 --> 00:27:30.130
  • but those are the moments that we have to memorialize today,
  • 00:27:30.130 --> 00:27:33.290
  • and I'm talkin' to somebody.
  • 00:27:33.290 --> 00:27:35.010
  • If you've got a doctor's report,
  • 00:27:35.010 --> 00:27:36.180
  • take a picture on your cell phone
  • 00:27:36.180 --> 00:27:38.130
  • of your bad doctor's report.
  • 00:27:38.130 --> 00:27:40.060
  • Take a picture of your checking account
  • 00:27:40.060 --> 00:27:42.130
  • and your balance that is zero.
  • 00:27:42.130 --> 00:27:45.160
  • We can do that,
  • 00:27:45.160 --> 00:27:47.010
  • we can do that because God wants to gain the glory
  • 00:27:47.010 --> 00:27:51.030
  • and He is our strength when we're weak.
  • 00:27:51.030 --> 00:27:54.100
  • And again, I'm getting all fired up and I've got chills,
  • 00:27:54.100 --> 00:27:59.090
  • because this is what life's about,
  • 00:27:59.090 --> 00:28:01.100
  • and I know, because of the reach of TBN,
  • 00:28:01.100 --> 00:28:04.030
  • that somebody is crying right now,
  • 00:28:04.030 --> 00:28:06.260
  • and it isn't tears of hopelessness,
  • 00:28:06.260 --> 00:28:09.250
  • it's tears of hope,
  • 00:28:09.250 --> 00:28:11.100
  • and again folks, this isn't just about Crohn's disease
  • 00:28:11.100 --> 00:28:14.010
  • or IBS, or celiac disease, or even psoriasis, or eczema,
  • 00:28:14.010 --> 00:28:19.000
  • or chronic fatigue, this isn't even just about health.
  • 00:28:20.160 --> 00:28:24.000
  • There are people out there
  • 00:28:24.000 --> 00:28:25.050
  • that have been praying for 20 years
  • 00:28:25.050 --> 00:28:27.030
  • for their spouse to come back,
  • 00:28:27.030 --> 00:28:28.110
  • or they've been praying for a job
  • 00:28:28.110 --> 00:28:31.280
  • so that they could literally get off the streets.
  • 00:28:31.280 --> 00:28:34.080
  • They've been praying for parents if they've been orphaned.
  • 00:28:34.080 --> 00:28:37.070
  • This is about faith and hope.
  • 00:28:37.070 --> 00:28:39.030
  • But, if you're someone who wants to transform your health,
  • 00:28:39.030 --> 00:28:42.110
  • I understand that hearing about faith,
  • 00:28:43.170 --> 00:28:47.190
  • hearing about prayer is important,
  • 00:28:47.190 --> 00:28:50.110
  • but people want something tangible,
  • 00:28:50.110 --> 00:28:52.010
  • and "Patient Heal Thyself" is all about
  • 00:28:52.010 --> 00:28:54.250
  • pulling yourself up by the bootstraps,
  • 00:28:54.250 --> 00:28:57.070
  • taking that step of faith,
  • 00:28:57.070 --> 00:28:58.280
  • and beginning to eat, drink, and think
  • 00:28:58.280 --> 00:29:02.250
  • according to God's plan.
  • 00:29:02.250 --> 00:29:04.020
  • - So first of all, Jordan,
  • 00:29:04.020 --> 00:29:06.110
  • "Patient Heal Thyself," month of August,
  • 00:29:06.110 --> 00:29:09.030
  • it is our offer, we want this book on faith into your hands.
  • 00:29:09.030 --> 00:29:14.020
  • Call the number on your screen,
  • 00:29:15.020 --> 00:29:16.220
  • that's what we're talking about.
  • 00:29:16.220 --> 00:29:19.030
  • Unpack just for a minute
  • 00:29:19.030 --> 00:29:22.000
  • some of the things that you either didn't know
  • 00:29:23.060 --> 00:29:26.150
  • in that 40 day period
  • 00:29:26.150 --> 00:29:28.020
  • and some of the things that you started to begin to know.
  • 00:29:28.020 --> 00:29:31.160
  • Give someone that's viewing right now
  • 00:29:31.160 --> 00:29:36.070
  • a preview to the coming attraction.
  • 00:29:36.070 --> 00:29:39.010
  • Everyone get the book, good,
  • 00:29:39.010 --> 00:29:40.250
  • but for some that might not be able to get the book
  • 00:29:40.250 --> 00:29:43.170
  • or don't have the ability to get it,
  • 00:29:43.170 --> 00:29:45.240
  • or is watching this, you know, in prison,
  • 00:29:45.240 --> 00:29:49.280
  • sick, somebody watching this in a situation
  • 00:29:49.280 --> 00:29:52.260
  • where they can't even get the book,
  • 00:29:52.260 --> 00:29:54.260
  • what did you start to learn,
  • 00:29:54.260 --> 00:29:57.000
  • 'cause your life completely changed in a 40 day period,
  • 00:29:57.000 --> 00:30:00.160
  • something changed, what did you start learning?
  • 00:30:00.160 --> 00:30:03.050
  • - Well, I'm gonna start with physical,
  • 00:30:03.050 --> 00:30:04.250
  • but I do wanna get back to some things
  • 00:30:04.250 --> 00:30:06.220
  • that the Lord worked out in my life
  • 00:30:06.220 --> 00:30:09.230
  • regarding my thought process,
  • 00:30:09.230 --> 00:30:12.220
  • how I spoke, that was really important,
  • 00:30:12.220 --> 00:30:14.130
  • but I know we need to get to some nutrition here.
  • 00:30:14.130 --> 00:30:17.200
  • I read the Bible every day as a teenager,
  • 00:30:17.200 --> 00:30:20.040
  • and I'm not saying that to boast,
  • 00:30:20.040 --> 00:30:21.220
  • I was blessed to be in the right church,
  • 00:30:21.220 --> 00:30:23.260
  • right place, right time, right group.
  • 00:30:23.260 --> 00:30:26.110
  • My parents taught me at a young age
  • 00:30:26.110 --> 00:30:29.260
  • that Jesus was the Messiah, I'm Jewish,
  • 00:30:29.260 --> 00:30:31.190
  • so that's not what every Jewish person gets to learn,
  • 00:30:31.190 --> 00:30:34.290
  • and I read the Bible,
  • 00:30:34.290 --> 00:30:37.150
  • but I never realized that there was any level
  • 00:30:37.150 --> 00:30:41.230
  • of nutritional information there,
  • 00:30:41.230 --> 00:30:43.070
  • and one very stark realization
  • 00:30:43.070 --> 00:30:46.020
  • is that from the beginning
  • 00:30:46.020 --> 00:30:47.240
  • God created certain things for us to eat
  • 00:30:47.240 --> 00:30:49.200
  • and certain things for us not to eat,
  • 00:30:49.200 --> 00:30:51.180
  • and the largest portion of nutritional text in the Bible
  • 00:30:51.180 --> 00:30:56.000
  • is found in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14.
  • 00:30:56.000 --> 00:30:59.110
  • But before you get into the nuts and bolts,
  • 00:30:59.110 --> 00:31:01.090
  • it talks about the Israelites
  • 00:31:01.090 --> 00:31:03.200
  • who are receiving this information
  • 00:31:03.200 --> 00:31:05.010
  • and God says, "You are a set apart people,
  • 00:31:05.010 --> 00:31:09.080
  • "you're My precious children,"
  • 00:31:09.080 --> 00:31:12.260
  • and God professes His love,
  • 00:31:12.260 --> 00:31:14.250
  • "and therefore you shall not eat,
  • 00:31:14.250 --> 00:31:17.290
  • "therefore you shall eat," and it goes into animals.
  • 00:31:17.290 --> 00:31:20.200
  • Now, first and foremost,
  • 00:31:20.200 --> 00:31:22.120
  • while I believe plant foods are amazing,
  • 00:31:22.120 --> 00:31:24.170
  • I believe that after the flood
  • 00:31:24.170 --> 00:31:26.220
  • our bodies function best on an omnivorous diet.
  • 00:31:26.220 --> 00:31:29.190
  • However, I believe that God created certain animals for food
  • 00:31:29.190 --> 00:31:34.110
  • and certain animals to be garbage collectors on the planet,
  • 00:31:34.110 --> 00:31:38.220
  • and I learned quickly
  • 00:31:38.220 --> 00:31:40.150
  • that pork and shellfish were not part of God's plan.
  • 00:31:40.150 --> 00:31:44.010
  • Now, being Jewish I knew that they were not kosher.
  • 00:31:44.010 --> 00:31:47.080
  • This is beyond kosher,
  • 00:31:47.080 --> 00:31:48.150
  • this isn't about the law of Moses,
  • 00:31:48.150 --> 00:31:50.240
  • this is about the anatomy and physiology
  • 00:31:50.240 --> 00:31:54.120
  • of a pig and of a scallop
  • 00:31:54.120 --> 00:31:57.140
  • and their function on the planet.
  • 00:31:57.140 --> 00:31:59.140
  • Now, later I would learn
  • 00:31:59.140 --> 00:32:02.150
  • biblical health eating rule number one,
  • 00:32:02.150 --> 00:32:05.160
  • thou shalt not eat anything Jesus cast demons into.
  • 00:32:05.160 --> 00:32:08.260
  • (Matt and Laurie laugh) Okay?
  • 00:32:08.260 --> 00:32:11.050
  • But, look, Jesus was Jewish,
  • 00:32:11.050 --> 00:32:12.290
  • we don't like to waste anything, much less food.
  • 00:32:12.290 --> 00:32:15.100
  • But truthfully, people will say,
  • 00:32:15.100 --> 00:32:17.220
  • "What about Peter's dream
  • 00:32:18.290 --> 00:32:20.050
  • "and the sheet with all the animals,
  • 00:32:20.050 --> 00:32:21.190
  • "and what about 'What comes out of a man's mouth
  • 00:32:21.190 --> 00:32:25.210
  • "'is what makes him unclean,' not what goes in?"
  • 00:32:25.210 --> 00:32:28.000
  • Listen, I'm not talking about what's a sin
  • 00:32:28.000 --> 00:32:30.230
  • and what's not a sin as far as eating.
  • 00:32:30.230 --> 00:32:32.190
  • What I do know is this.
  • 00:32:32.190 --> 00:32:34.020
  • God created certain animals with certain structures,
  • 00:32:35.140 --> 00:32:37.200
  • think cows, goats, sheep,
  • 00:32:37.200 --> 00:32:39.120
  • they're different than pigs and rats and skunks,
  • 00:32:39.120 --> 00:32:41.290
  • and I know you're saying I would never eat a rat, a skunk,
  • 00:32:41.290 --> 00:32:43.250
  • but pigs have a digestive tract,
  • 00:32:43.250 --> 00:32:47.010
  • they're called monogastrics,
  • 00:32:47.010 --> 00:32:48.150
  • like humans, they're not able to remove toxins properly.
  • 00:32:48.150 --> 00:32:52.010
  • There's a lot of reasons I could convince you
  • 00:32:52.010 --> 00:32:54.240
  • never to eat pork. - Right.
  • 00:32:54.240 --> 00:32:55.230
  • - But rather, let me say this.
  • 00:32:55.230 --> 00:32:57.100
  • - He's done that to me. - Pork and shellfish
  • 00:32:57.100 --> 00:32:59.240
  • and eating them is not worth
  • 00:32:59.240 --> 00:33:01.160
  • your healing being separated from you,
  • 00:33:02.210 --> 00:33:05.160
  • and I believe that God can heal
  • 00:33:05.160 --> 00:33:08.100
  • if we will heed His ancient wisdom, that by the way,
  • 00:33:08.100 --> 00:33:11.290
  • is the same yesterday, today, and forever,
  • 00:33:11.290 --> 00:33:13.180
  • so I learned about not eating certain animal foods.
  • 00:33:13.180 --> 00:33:17.290
  • Clearly pork and shellfish and pork products,
  • 00:33:17.290 --> 00:33:20.020
  • those are the most prevalent in today's environment,
  • 00:33:20.020 --> 00:33:23.000
  • and we're actually celebrating them.
  • 00:33:23.000 --> 00:33:24.180
  • Think about it, you go to a French restaurant,
  • 00:33:24.180 --> 00:33:26.270
  • I'm not gonna do my bad French accent,
  • 00:33:26.270 --> 00:33:28.210
  • but you gotta wade through all the appetizers,
  • 00:33:28.210 --> 00:33:31.030
  • the entrees, and even the desserts
  • 00:33:31.030 --> 00:33:32.130
  • that are full of bacon in various forms,
  • 00:33:32.130 --> 00:33:36.020
  • and pork, and shellfish, and all of this,
  • 00:33:36.020 --> 00:33:39.050
  • they celebrate escargot, which are snails,
  • 00:33:39.050 --> 00:33:41.250
  • but for some reason God created those things
  • 00:33:41.250 --> 00:33:44.020
  • not to be eaten,
  • 00:33:44.020 --> 00:33:45.090
  • and I decided, I've tried everything else,
  • 00:33:45.090 --> 00:33:46.190
  • I might as well try it God's way.
  • 00:33:46.190 --> 00:33:48.050
  • But I also learned that there are elements
  • 00:33:48.050 --> 00:33:51.180
  • that we've created today
  • 00:33:51.180 --> 00:33:53.230
  • that are chemicals that God didn't talk about in the Bible
  • 00:33:53.230 --> 00:33:57.000
  • but can be bad for you.
  • 00:33:57.000 --> 00:33:58.020
  • And Matt, we always talk,
  • 00:33:58.020 --> 00:33:59.080
  • and probably five times we were on the shows
  • 00:33:59.080 --> 00:34:01.030
  • and you would ask, "Jordan,
  • 00:34:01.030 --> 00:34:02.270
  • "there's this sort of dirty dozen,
  • 00:34:02.270 --> 00:34:05.080
  • "things you would never eat."
  • 00:34:05.080 --> 00:34:06.140
  • And I always say, "I'll tell ya three."
  • 00:34:06.140 --> 00:34:07.220
  • One is the pork and the shellfish,
  • 00:34:07.220 --> 00:34:09.220
  • they're not unclean, they're not un-kosher,
  • 00:34:09.220 --> 00:34:11.160
  • they're detestable, that's what God calls them, detestable.
  • 00:34:11.160 --> 00:34:14.270
  • Number two, artificial sweeteners.
  • 00:34:14.270 --> 00:34:17.260
  • The good news is,
  • 00:34:17.260 --> 00:34:19.020
  • 15 years after my first appearance on Praise
  • 00:34:19.020 --> 00:34:22.070
  • people now realize that artificial
  • 00:34:22.070 --> 00:34:24.050
  • or diet sweeteners are not all they're cracked up to be.
  • 00:34:24.050 --> 00:34:26.140
  • Pink, yellow, and blue packets,
  • 00:34:26.140 --> 00:34:28.040
  • they don't make you thin, they make you fatter,
  • 00:34:28.040 --> 00:34:30.100
  • they can make you be addicted,
  • 00:34:30.100 --> 00:34:32.040
  • so diet doesn't make you healthier.
  • 00:34:32.040 --> 00:34:34.150
  • In fact, if you see diet and you're so tempted
  • 00:34:34.150 --> 00:34:36.130
  • 'cause diet sounds good, cross off the T.
  • 00:34:36.130 --> 00:34:39.030
  • No one would drink die soda, although I wish it would die.
  • 00:34:39.030 --> 00:34:42.290
  • So that's number two.
  • 00:34:42.290 --> 00:34:43.270
  • Number three, hydrogenated oils.
  • 00:34:43.270 --> 00:34:47.000
  • I believe fats
  • 00:34:47.000 --> 00:34:48.230
  • are the most important macronutrient we consume.
  • 00:34:48.230 --> 00:34:52.030
  • Good fats from avocado, from almonds,
  • 00:34:52.030 --> 00:34:55.140
  • from olives and olive oil,
  • 00:34:55.140 --> 00:34:57.170
  • from grass-fed butter, and ghee, and coconut,
  • 00:34:57.170 --> 00:34:59.290
  • amazing for you,
  • 00:34:59.290 --> 00:35:01.140
  • but bad fats such as hydrogenated oils,
  • 00:35:01.140 --> 00:35:05.020
  • we would look at it as margarine or shortening.
  • 00:35:05.020 --> 00:35:08.050
  • When you look at a baked good
  • 00:35:08.050 --> 00:35:09.160
  • it says partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated.
  • 00:35:09.160 --> 00:35:12.180
  • They are unstable fats that are carcinogenic,
  • 00:35:12.180 --> 00:35:16.030
  • which means they can lead to unhealthy cell growth,
  • 00:35:16.030 --> 00:35:19.170
  • cancer, et cetera,
  • 00:35:19.170 --> 00:35:21.160
  • poor brain health, they're just rotten all around.
  • 00:35:21.160 --> 00:35:24.190
  • Those three.
  • 00:35:24.190 --> 00:35:26.020
  • Pork and shellfish are detestable animals, call it,
  • 00:35:26.020 --> 00:35:28.070
  • artificial sweeteners, and hydrogenated oils,
  • 00:35:28.070 --> 00:35:31.220
  • and many people this morning had all three.
  • 00:35:31.220 --> 00:35:33.190
  • Think about it.
  • 00:35:33.190 --> 00:35:34.170
  • You had a blueberry muffin
  • 00:35:34.170 --> 00:35:36.260
  • that you got from the store with hydrogenated oils,
  • 00:35:36.260 --> 00:35:39.230
  • you had bacon that contained pork,
  • 00:35:39.230 --> 00:35:41.200
  • and then you had coffee with artificial sweetener in it.
  • 00:35:41.200 --> 00:35:44.290
  • And I'm not blaming you, don't feel bad,
  • 00:35:44.290 --> 00:35:46.220
  • I ate a certain way until I found the truth.
  • 00:35:46.220 --> 00:35:49.170
  • In fact, people come to me and they say,
  • 00:35:49.170 --> 00:35:51.010
  • "Jordan, I'm really sick, what do I do?"
  • 00:35:51.010 --> 00:35:53.000
  • And I say, "Write down what you're eating for three days,
  • 00:35:53.000 --> 00:35:55.240
  • "a diet diary."
  • 00:35:55.240 --> 00:35:57.000
  • They feel so guilty, they try to clean it up,
  • 00:35:57.000 --> 00:35:58.250
  • and they say to me, "I'm eating terribly."
  • 00:35:58.250 --> 00:36:00.260
  • And I say, "That's awesome."
  • 00:36:00.260 --> 00:36:02.050
  • "What do you mean that's awesome?"
  • 00:36:02.050 --> 00:36:03.190
  • Well, I know there's so much room for you to improve.
  • 00:36:03.190 --> 00:36:05.250
  • So if you're watching today,
  • 00:36:05.250 --> 00:36:06.250
  • and "I didn't know this was bad,
  • 00:36:06.250 --> 00:36:08.050
  • "I didn't know this was good,"
  • 00:36:08.050 --> 00:36:09.200
  • don't worry, you're about to have a health breakthrough
  • 00:36:09.200 --> 00:36:12.230
  • because of the fact that you didn't know.
  • 00:36:12.230 --> 00:36:14.220
  • And Hosea 4:6 says,
  • 00:36:14.220 --> 00:36:17.080
  • "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."
  • 00:36:17.080 --> 00:36:20.190
  • It doesn't say that it's your fault,
  • 00:36:20.190 --> 00:36:24.180
  • but it doesn't mean you won't be destroyed.
  • 00:36:24.180 --> 00:36:26.080
  • I've lost loved ones,
  • 00:36:26.080 --> 00:36:27.230
  • people watching have lost loved ones,
  • 00:36:27.230 --> 00:36:29.030
  • you've lost loved ones.
  • 00:36:29.030 --> 00:36:30.070
  • And sometimes we didn't know any better,
  • 00:36:30.070 --> 00:36:32.070
  • but now you do, and that's why we're here.
  • 00:36:32.070 --> 00:36:34.230
  • I love some of the scriptures in Ezekiel
  • 00:36:34.230 --> 00:36:38.150
  • where Ezekiel is called to sort of
  • 00:36:38.150 --> 00:36:40.190
  • be that watchman on the wall,
  • 00:36:40.190 --> 00:36:43.000
  • and He literally says, the Lord says to Ezekiel,
  • 00:36:43.000 --> 00:36:47.040
  • "If you know about the truth
  • 00:36:47.040 --> 00:36:49.010
  • "and don't tell your fellow people,
  • 00:36:49.010 --> 00:36:52.000
  • "and they die because they don't follow it,
  • 00:36:52.000 --> 00:36:54.010
  • "I'm holding you responsible."
  • 00:36:54.010 --> 00:36:56.040
  • So I felt compelled to share this information.
  • 00:36:56.040 --> 00:36:59.250
  • So eating is important, you wanna eat the good things.
  • 00:36:59.250 --> 00:37:02.280
  • I mentioned good fats.
  • 00:37:02.280 --> 00:37:04.130
  • I learned about the proper way to consume animal foods,
  • 00:37:04.130 --> 00:37:06.270
  • grass-fed meats, et cetera.
  • 00:37:06.270 --> 00:37:08.190
  • I had lots of fruits and vegetables and juices.
  • 00:37:08.190 --> 00:37:11.090
  • I avoided things that had high sugar.
  • 00:37:11.090 --> 00:37:13.280
  • I learned about probiotics, and enzymes,
  • 00:37:13.280 --> 00:37:16.180
  • and mushrooms that boost your immune system.
  • 00:37:16.180 --> 00:37:19.150
  • I learned about the importance
  • 00:37:19.150 --> 00:37:20.290
  • of what oils to cook with and what oils to eat.
  • 00:37:20.290 --> 00:37:23.110
  • But you know what really started my healing?
  • 00:37:23.110 --> 00:37:25.250
  • It's what came out of my mouth, not what went in.
  • 00:37:25.250 --> 00:37:27.250
  • And I do believe that there is absolute truth
  • 00:37:27.250 --> 00:37:31.070
  • to that scripture
  • 00:37:31.070 --> 00:37:32.230
  • that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks,
  • 00:37:32.230 --> 00:37:36.190
  • and life and death is in the power of the tongue,
  • 00:37:36.190 --> 00:37:38.110
  • and I remember being in San Diego with this man Bud Keith
  • 00:37:38.110 --> 00:37:42.120
  • and he told me, "Jordan, you've gotta start smiling."
  • 00:37:42.120 --> 00:37:46.060
  • And I said, "But I'm sick all the time,
  • 00:37:46.060 --> 00:37:47.270
  • "and I feel like I'm gonna throw up,
  • 00:37:47.270 --> 00:37:50.020
  • "and I'm in the bathroom all the time,"
  • 00:37:50.020 --> 00:37:52.080
  • and I said, "In our Jewish Yiddish language
  • 00:37:52.080 --> 00:37:56.130
  • "we have a term for frowning
  • 00:37:56.130 --> 00:37:57.280
  • "called (speaks in foreign language)."
  • 00:37:57.280 --> 00:37:59.050
  • And he said, "Well stop doing it."
  • 00:37:59.050 --> 00:38:00.230
  • And I said, "Well, do you want me to just
  • 00:38:00.230 --> 00:38:03.000
  • "say something that isn't true?"
  • 00:38:03.000 --> 00:38:04.200
  • And he said "No, you need to say things
  • 00:38:04.200 --> 00:38:06.120
  • "that are true according to God."
  • 00:38:06.120 --> 00:38:08.010
  • And so instead of me saying, "I'm sick,"
  • 00:38:08.010 --> 00:38:10.270
  • like it's a blanket statement,
  • 00:38:10.270 --> 00:38:12.220
  • I actually realized that I'm not sick every minute.
  • 00:38:12.220 --> 00:38:16.190
  • I might be sick every five minutes,
  • 00:38:16.190 --> 00:38:18.040
  • I'd have a stomach pain every five minutes,
  • 00:38:18.040 --> 00:38:20.080
  • but I had four minutes in there
  • 00:38:20.080 --> 00:38:22.010
  • that I wasn't in pain, and you know what I did?
  • 00:38:22.010 --> 00:38:23.290
  • Instead of waiting to be sick in five minutes,
  • 00:38:23.290 --> 00:38:27.080
  • instead of dreading the night,
  • 00:38:27.080 --> 00:38:29.170
  • which was even worse than the day,
  • 00:38:29.170 --> 00:38:31.090
  • I started thanking God and saying, "I'm well"
  • 00:38:31.090 --> 00:38:35.000
  • during the time that I didn't have symptoms,
  • 00:38:35.000 --> 00:38:37.230
  • and people, like, but you're lying
  • 00:38:37.230 --> 00:38:38.260
  • 'cause you had a diagnosis.
  • 00:38:38.260 --> 00:38:40.090
  • You know what's a lie?
  • 00:38:40.090 --> 00:38:41.270
  • A lie is that I'm always gonna be sick,
  • 00:38:41.270 --> 00:38:44.110
  • a lie is that I'm gonna die,
  • 00:38:44.110 --> 00:38:46.000
  • a lie is a man with a lab coat telling you
  • 00:38:46.000 --> 00:38:49.220
  • that you have a tumor that's going to kill you
  • 00:38:49.220 --> 00:38:52.180
  • within six months, that's a lie.
  • 00:38:52.180 --> 00:38:54.230
  • But that's a lie that becomes the truth if we believe it,
  • 00:38:54.230 --> 00:38:57.040
  • so I realized that life and death
  • 00:38:57.040 --> 00:39:00.070
  • is in the power of the tongue,
  • 00:39:00.070 --> 00:39:01.120
  • and I'm gonna start speaking life.
  • 00:39:01.120 --> 00:39:02.270
  • And through the rest of my life,
  • 00:39:02.270 --> 00:39:05.180
  • it has served me very well.
  • 00:39:05.180 --> 00:39:07.290
  • I don't always do it,
  • 00:39:07.290 --> 00:39:09.150
  • but when I was in a circumstance I didn't want
  • 00:39:09.150 --> 00:39:13.190
  • I started speaking to my spirit
  • 00:39:13.190 --> 00:39:16.130
  • and my body to get into alignment,
  • 00:39:16.130 --> 00:39:18.040
  • and I didn't even know what this all meant.
  • 00:39:18.040 --> 00:39:20.040
  • I was only 19 years old, but what I was doing was
  • 00:39:20.040 --> 00:39:23.130
  • I was speaking things into existence that weren't,
  • 00:39:23.130 --> 00:39:26.130
  • but I was also acknowledging that it's not all bad,
  • 00:39:26.130 --> 00:39:29.170
  • I'm not all sick, I'm not all broken,
  • 00:39:29.170 --> 00:39:31.220
  • and I started thanking God for the unimaginable,
  • 00:39:31.220 --> 00:39:34.050
  • the moments that I didn't feel terribly sick.
  • 00:39:34.050 --> 00:39:37.110
  • I still looked like a skeleton,
  • 00:39:37.110 --> 00:39:39.040
  • I still had a diagnosis,
  • 00:39:39.040 --> 00:39:41.030
  • but those minutes turned into hours,
  • 00:39:41.030 --> 00:39:43.250
  • that turned into days, that turned into months,
  • 00:39:43.250 --> 00:39:46.010
  • that turned into my new life.
  • 00:39:46.010 --> 00:39:47.280
  • - Wow.
  • 00:39:47.280 --> 00:39:49.130
  • You know, the scripture where the Lord is saying,
  • 00:39:49.130 --> 00:39:52.040
  • know that the plans that I have for you are good,
  • 00:39:52.040 --> 00:39:57.040
  • and for a future, and a hope,
  • 00:39:58.000 --> 00:39:59.250
  • and the Lord is trying to get us to look forward,
  • 00:40:01.080 --> 00:40:04.280
  • and that's the truth.
  • 00:40:04.280 --> 00:40:06.250
  • See, the Bible is the truth.
  • 00:40:06.250 --> 00:40:08.130
  • The symptoms that we're feeling
  • 00:40:08.130 --> 00:40:11.200
  • are basically not lined up with the perfection
  • 00:40:11.200 --> 00:40:16.210
  • that God paid for, His redemptive work on the cross,
  • 00:40:16.210 --> 00:40:20.140
  • and praying that your symptom
  • 00:40:20.140 --> 00:40:24.040
  • or what you're experiencing lines up,
  • 00:40:24.040 --> 00:40:27.200
  • and to change what you were saying about yourself,
  • 00:40:27.200 --> 00:40:31.210
  • really began the change
  • 00:40:31.210 --> 00:40:34.040
  • that is chronicled in "Patient Heal Thyself."
  • 00:40:34.040 --> 00:40:37.070
  • - It did, and what was great is,
  • 00:40:37.070 --> 00:40:39.230
  • I started with faith, hope, and speaking what I wanted
  • 00:40:39.230 --> 00:40:44.230
  • and not what I didn't want,
  • 00:40:46.010 --> 00:40:48.000
  • and I also aligned my body with God's plan.
  • 00:40:48.000 --> 00:40:52.180
  • And I did something,
  • 00:40:52.180 --> 00:40:54.090
  • I found this great probiotic compound,
  • 00:40:54.090 --> 00:40:58.080
  • actually my dad found it and sent it to me,
  • 00:40:58.080 --> 00:41:00.070
  • and I started consuming real, organic,
  • 00:41:00.070 --> 00:41:04.130
  • biblically correct foods.
  • 00:41:04.130 --> 00:41:07.050
  • I started walking on the beach,
  • 00:41:07.050 --> 00:41:08.160
  • I started breathing in ocean air,
  • 00:41:08.160 --> 00:41:11.190
  • and I started replacing fear with faith,
  • 00:41:11.190 --> 00:41:15.150
  • and I literally, for those 40 days,
  • 00:41:15.150 --> 00:41:17.270
  • lived in a motor home by the beach in San Diego
  • 00:41:17.270 --> 00:41:20.040
  • kinda by myself, and I'm a gregarious person
  • 00:41:20.040 --> 00:41:22.070
  • who likes to always talk and be with people,
  • 00:41:22.070 --> 00:41:24.070
  • but I relived my past,
  • 00:41:24.070 --> 00:41:27.080
  • and then I put a pin in it and realized
  • 00:41:27.080 --> 00:41:29.260
  • that I had a lot of great times,
  • 00:41:29.260 --> 00:41:32.070
  • but it's new now, He is making all things new,
  • 00:41:32.070 --> 00:41:37.010
  • and I began to dream about one day what I would do,
  • 00:41:37.010 --> 00:41:40.110
  • and I dreamed that one day I would be a part
  • 00:41:40.110 --> 00:41:43.050
  • of helping bringing healing to the nations.
  • 00:41:43.050 --> 00:41:46.010
  • And you know what's really amazing sitting here?
  • 00:41:46.010 --> 00:41:48.200
  • We're talking a book that I wrote out of my desperation
  • 00:41:50.040 --> 00:41:53.290
  • that I believe can help everyone who's watching.
  • 00:41:53.290 --> 00:41:56.010
  • I've met people that have read "Patient Heal Thyself"
  • 00:41:56.010 --> 00:41:59.000
  • and it's not only changed their lives,
  • 00:41:59.000 --> 00:42:00.200
  • but they feed their children differently,
  • 00:42:00.200 --> 00:42:02.190
  • their grandchildren, it's a generational message of God.
  • 00:42:02.190 --> 00:42:07.010
  • I have testimonies from "Patient Heal Thyself."
  • 00:42:07.010 --> 00:42:10.100
  • This is a great one.
  • 00:42:10.100 --> 00:42:11.080
  • I was about to do a seminar
  • 00:42:11.080 --> 00:42:12.080
  • and a man wanted to meet with me,
  • 00:42:12.080 --> 00:42:14.090
  • and you know, that happens sometimes, and I said sure,
  • 00:42:14.090 --> 00:42:17.210
  • and he brought a 12 year old boy there,
  • 00:42:17.210 --> 00:42:19.070
  • and it was an Italian family,
  • 00:42:19.070 --> 00:42:20.220
  • I remember his name was Masamo,
  • 00:42:20.220 --> 00:42:22.120
  • and he said, "My son had Crohn's disease.
  • 00:42:22.120 --> 00:42:24.240
  • "He was 11 years old, a great athlete, great student,
  • 00:42:24.240 --> 00:42:28.220
  • "but he got so sick we had to homeschool him,
  • 00:42:28.220 --> 00:42:31.110
  • "he couldn't play sports anymore,
  • 00:42:31.110 --> 00:42:33.060
  • "and he was about to be put on medication,
  • 00:42:33.060 --> 00:42:35.110
  • "but he saw," you're gonna love this,
  • 00:42:35.110 --> 00:42:39.060
  • "he saw you on TBN
  • 00:42:39.060 --> 00:42:43.070
  • "and he made us order your book,
  • 00:42:43.070 --> 00:42:45.270
  • "and we said you can either go on medication,
  • 00:42:45.270 --> 00:42:49.110
  • "or follow this plan."
  • 00:42:49.110 --> 00:42:50.180
  • Now, I'm not telling you to go off medication,
  • 00:42:50.180 --> 00:42:52.020
  • or that you need to eat food
  • 00:42:52.020 --> 00:42:54.030
  • instead of taking your prescriptions,
  • 00:42:54.030 --> 00:42:55.220
  • but this boy made that decision.
  • 00:42:55.220 --> 00:42:57.190
  • The family started cooking
  • 00:42:57.190 --> 00:42:58.290
  • and eating this way because of him,
  • 00:42:58.290 --> 00:43:00.170
  • and he stood there beaming.
  • 00:43:00.170 --> 00:43:02.110
  • They said, "He's healed, he's back in school,
  • 00:43:02.110 --> 00:43:05.260
  • "he's the leading goalscorer on his soccer team."
  • 00:43:05.260 --> 00:43:08.180
  • This is a kid who made the decision
  • 00:43:08.180 --> 00:43:10.280
  • to be like Daniel, right,
  • 00:43:10.280 --> 00:43:12.110
  • forsaking the food of the world and following God's plan.
  • 00:43:12.110 --> 00:43:17.040
  • I have hundreds of stories like this,
  • 00:43:17.040 --> 00:43:20.210
  • and this is where I started
  • 00:43:20.210 --> 00:43:23.040
  • and you all gave me the opportunity to remember,
  • 00:43:23.040 --> 00:43:26.030
  • to share my story again,
  • 00:43:26.030 --> 00:43:27.240
  • and I even, I'm encouraging myself right now.
  • 00:43:27.240 --> 00:43:30.240

  • - It feels like you started the process
  • 00:44:37.190 --> 00:44:41.230
  • of doing things God's way.
  • 00:44:41.230 --> 00:44:44.200
  • Eating, speaking, okay,
  • 00:44:44.200 --> 00:44:47.080
  • that ultimately then starts to fuel something in you
  • 00:44:48.200 --> 00:44:53.080
  • where you actually start believing the right way.
  • 00:44:54.140 --> 00:44:58.100
  • Do you remember some incremental little moment
  • 00:44:59.210 --> 00:45:04.020
  • in your journey towards health
  • 00:45:04.020 --> 00:45:06.160
  • where you kind of went, "Wait a second,
  • 00:45:06.160 --> 00:45:09.150
  • "this is actually working."
  • 00:45:09.150 --> 00:45:12.150
  • - I do, and it was before it was working.
  • 00:45:12.150 --> 00:45:14.220
  • I had been out of the hospital for a short time,
  • 00:45:14.220 --> 00:45:18.210
  • I visited 69 medical experts,
  • 00:45:18.210 --> 00:45:20.160
  • and I met a man who's now gone to be with the Lord
  • 00:45:20.160 --> 00:45:22.260
  • by the name of Bud Keith,
  • 00:45:22.260 --> 00:45:24.280
  • through circumstances that my father was talking to someone
  • 00:45:24.280 --> 00:45:29.020
  • who connected him with someone,
  • 00:45:29.020 --> 00:45:30.080
  • and then he said, "There's a man
  • 00:45:30.080 --> 00:45:31.150
  • "who helps people that are sick."
  • 00:45:31.150 --> 00:45:33.110
  • I got on the phone with him, and he spoke life into me.
  • 00:45:33.110 --> 00:45:37.190
  • He said, "Jordan, you are going to come to San Diego,
  • 00:45:37.190 --> 00:45:40.260
  • "and you're going to work out on the beach in three months."
  • 00:45:40.260 --> 00:45:45.070
  • And I couldn't wait to get there.
  • 00:45:45.070 --> 00:45:47.190
  • He was in California, I was in Florida,
  • 00:45:47.190 --> 00:45:49.080
  • Eastern time zone, Pacific,
  • 00:45:49.080 --> 00:45:51.140
  • and one time we set up a call,
  • 00:45:51.140 --> 00:45:54.020
  • and I couldn't wait to call him
  • 00:45:54.020 --> 00:45:56.080
  • just to hear someone tell me
  • 00:45:56.080 --> 00:45:58.150
  • that I could be healed. - Wow.
  • 00:45:58.150 --> 00:46:00.020
  • - Because of God's love for me and God's plan.
  • 00:46:00.020 --> 00:46:02.290
  • So guess what, you've got that right now,
  • 00:46:02.290 --> 00:46:04.170
  • that's the turning point.
  • 00:46:04.170 --> 00:46:05.280
  • You asked for healing, you prayed for healing,
  • 00:46:05.280 --> 00:46:08.170
  • and I am telling you
  • 00:46:08.170 --> 00:46:10.140
  • it is your time to take a step of faith
  • 00:46:10.140 --> 00:46:13.130
  • and begin to speak the truth,
  • 00:46:13.130 --> 00:46:15.280
  • and the truth is that you are fearfully and wonderfully made
  • 00:46:15.280 --> 00:46:19.190
  • The truth is you will live and not die
  • 00:46:19.190 --> 00:46:21.220
  • and proclaim the glory of God.
  • 00:46:21.220 --> 00:46:24.120
  • The truth is that you are the head and not the tail.
  • 00:46:24.120 --> 00:46:27.280
  • The truth is that with long life
  • 00:46:27.280 --> 00:46:30.290
  • will God satisfy you and show you His salvation.
  • 00:46:30.290 --> 00:46:35.290
  • Healing is here, it is coming through this TV screen,
  • 00:46:37.100 --> 00:46:41.050
  • or the Internet broadcast,
  • 00:46:42.010 --> 00:46:44.030
  • or maybe even you're just listening to audio,
  • 00:46:44.030 --> 00:46:45.280
  • or maybe someone's telling you about this,
  • 00:46:45.280 --> 00:46:47.220
  • or maybe it's a transcript, but healing is available,
  • 00:46:47.220 --> 00:46:51.110
  • you've got to start proclaiming it and believing it.
  • 00:46:51.110 --> 00:46:55.010
  • You know, I was part of a church when I was younger
  • 00:46:55.010 --> 00:46:58.000
  • that shied away from believing and proclaiming things,
  • 00:46:58.000 --> 00:47:02.140
  • it was more like, if it's God's will,
  • 00:47:02.140 --> 00:47:04.020
  • but when you're sick there is no if,
  • 00:47:04.020 --> 00:47:06.160
  • and it doesn't matter if your uncle, cousin, sister,
  • 00:47:06.160 --> 00:47:09.010
  • doesn't matter if your friend had an illness
  • 00:47:09.010 --> 00:47:11.040
  • and didn't get well, this is between you and God,
  • 00:47:11.040 --> 00:47:13.220
  • and if you want it, get it.
  • 00:47:13.220 --> 00:47:17.010
  • Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
  • 00:47:17.010 --> 00:47:20.040
  • the evidence of things not seen.
  • 00:47:20.040 --> 00:47:21.230
  • Fear is the substance of things dreaded that you can't see.
  • 00:47:21.230 --> 00:47:26.230
  • It's so much easier to be fearful, right?
  • 00:47:27.280 --> 00:47:29.130
  • Oh, well I've got a diagnosis, I'm gonna research on WebMD
  • 00:47:29.130 --> 00:47:32.170
  • what's gonna happen to me in five years.
  • 00:47:32.170 --> 00:47:34.060
  • You have to stop that.
  • 00:47:34.060 --> 00:47:35.230
  • I literally had a lab report once
  • 00:47:35.230 --> 00:47:38.120
  • that didn't line up with what I wanted and believed,
  • 00:47:38.120 --> 00:47:41.090
  • and I rebuked it in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:47:41.090 --> 00:47:43.150
  • Well, but that's weird and strange.
  • 00:47:43.150 --> 00:47:45.040
  • You know what's weird and strange?
  • 00:47:45.040 --> 00:47:47.040
  • That I know people that are moms
  • 00:47:47.040 --> 00:47:50.140
  • that are wonderful human beings that love the Lord
  • 00:47:50.140 --> 00:47:53.130
  • that died from this disease or that disease.
  • 00:47:53.130 --> 00:47:56.220
  • That's weird, that's strange, and that's terrible.
  • 00:47:56.220 --> 00:47:59.000
  • It's not weird to believe for something you want,
  • 00:47:59.000 --> 00:48:02.240
  • and if you're out there and you have a diagnosis
  • 00:48:02.240 --> 00:48:05.000
  • don't say you're diabetic, don't call your child autistic.
  • 00:48:05.000 --> 00:48:08.260
  • We go around saying this 10 times more
  • 00:48:08.260 --> 00:48:11.030
  • than we say I'm a child of God, I'm healed, I'm whole.
  • 00:48:11.030 --> 00:48:14.060
  • It's risky, you're gonna put yourself out there,
  • 00:48:14.060 --> 00:48:17.130
  • but do it, and you will bless people around you,
  • 00:48:17.130 --> 00:48:19.280
  • and you can even have peace and joy within the storm
  • 00:48:19.280 --> 00:48:22.290
  • because if you will proclaim what you want
  • 00:48:22.290 --> 00:48:26.050
  • the worst thing that could happen
  • 00:48:26.050 --> 00:48:27.160
  • is at the end of this journey you go to heaven
  • 00:48:27.160 --> 00:48:30.230
  • and you get your home, your mansion,
  • 00:48:30.230 --> 00:48:32.260
  • you walk streets of gold,
  • 00:48:32.260 --> 00:48:34.130
  • but while you're here
  • 00:48:34.130 --> 00:48:36.150
  • kick the devil in the mouth every single moment you can.
  • 00:48:37.290 --> 00:48:41.110
  • And I used to, I constructed a prayer at one point.
  • 00:48:41.110 --> 00:48:46.050
  • My dad would send me encouraging scriptures,
  • 00:48:46.050 --> 00:48:48.100
  • great teachers like Charles Capps and others.
  • 00:48:48.100 --> 00:48:50.130
  • I would put it all together, old timers, right?
  • 00:48:50.130 --> 00:48:52.230
  • And I'd quote it three times a day,
  • 00:48:52.230 --> 00:48:54.040
  • and I would literally picture
  • 00:48:54.040 --> 00:48:56.070
  • the devil and demons holding their ears
  • 00:48:56.070 --> 00:48:58.030
  • like a dog whistle would pierce a dog's ears.
  • 00:48:58.030 --> 00:49:01.090
  • You need to put hell on warning,
  • 00:49:01.090 --> 00:49:04.120
  • and tell heaven that they've got
  • 00:49:04.120 --> 00:49:05.190
  • another miracle story coming up.
  • 00:49:05.190 --> 00:49:07.030
  • - You know Jordan, there are so many people
  • 00:49:07.030 --> 00:49:08.120
  • that I know are watching right now
  • 00:49:08.120 --> 00:49:10.100
  • that they don't have that much faith,
  • 00:49:10.100 --> 00:49:13.140
  • but I heard a guy say one time,
  • 00:49:13.140 --> 00:49:15.250
  • "Would you receive our faith, can we pray for ya?"
  • 00:49:15.250 --> 00:49:18.140
  • You know, so why don't you just pray
  • 00:49:18.140 --> 00:49:19.260
  • for the people right now,
  • 00:49:19.260 --> 00:49:21.040
  • 'cause a lot of people probably have more faith
  • 00:49:21.040 --> 00:49:23.050
  • in your prayers right now than they do in their own.
  • 00:49:23.050 --> 00:49:25.140
  • - I would be honored to do it.
  • 00:49:25.140 --> 00:49:27.080
  • Heavenly Father, I thank You that Your word says
  • 00:49:27.080 --> 00:49:29.200
  • "I will restore health unto you and heal your wounds."
  • 00:49:29.200 --> 00:49:34.170
  • I thank You, Lord, that Your word says twice
  • 00:49:35.210 --> 00:49:38.200
  • in each testament
  • 00:49:38.200 --> 00:49:40.100
  • that by Your stripes, I was, but no, now am healed.
  • 00:49:40.100 --> 00:49:45.100
  • I am healed.
  • 00:49:47.170 --> 00:49:49.000
  • Say it with me if you're watching.
  • 00:49:49.000 --> 00:49:51.050
  • I am healed of diabetes.
  • 00:49:51.050 --> 00:49:54.080
  • I am healed of cancer,
  • 00:49:54.080 --> 00:49:56.050
  • because "I Am is My name," says the Lord.
  • 00:49:56.050 --> 00:49:59.000
  • I am an overcomer,
  • 00:49:59.000 --> 00:50:02.040
  • I am going to live and not die
  • 00:50:02.040 --> 00:50:06.000
  • and proclaim the glory of God.
  • 00:50:06.000 --> 00:50:08.100
  • I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
  • 00:50:08.100 --> 00:50:10.080
  • no matter what the mirror says,
  • 00:50:10.080 --> 00:50:12.030
  • no matter what the doctor says,
  • 00:50:12.030 --> 00:50:13.110
  • no matter what people say.
  • 00:50:13.110 --> 00:50:15.080
  • I believe, Lord God, that there are parents right now
  • 00:50:15.080 --> 00:50:18.130
  • that are gonna begin laying hands on
  • 00:50:18.130 --> 00:50:19.290
  • and praying for their children with autism,
  • 00:50:19.290 --> 00:50:22.140
  • with epilepsy, with asthma and allergies,
  • 00:50:22.140 --> 00:50:26.140
  • with cancers, childhood cancers being healed in Jesus' name.
  • 00:50:26.140 --> 00:50:31.040
  • I pray for a dogmatic and a disciplined
  • 00:50:31.040 --> 00:50:35.080
  • and a unrelenting faith to rise up in people watching,
  • 00:50:35.080 --> 00:50:38.230
  • and Lord, You can and will heal,
  • 00:50:38.230 --> 00:50:42.060
  • and I pray that You do it any way possible.
  • 00:50:42.060 --> 00:50:44.290
  • I pray for people watching
  • 00:50:44.290 --> 00:50:46.190
  • that are standing in the gap for loved ones,
  • 00:50:46.190 --> 00:50:49.170
  • maybe unbelievers.
  • 00:50:49.170 --> 00:50:50.290
  • I pray, Lord, that you would bring healing
  • 00:50:50.290 --> 00:50:52.180
  • and show Your tangible power,
  • 00:50:52.180 --> 00:50:54.180
  • because that's what You did on this earth,
  • 00:50:55.230 --> 00:50:57.010
  • You healed and You fed,
  • 00:50:57.010 --> 00:50:58.160
  • and people asked why, and they asked who,
  • 00:50:58.160 --> 00:51:01.180
  • and the answer was Jesus and love.
  • 00:51:01.180 --> 00:51:04.240
  • Lord, I pray for people right now
  • 00:51:04.240 --> 00:51:06.190
  • who have dementia and Alzheimer's,
  • 00:51:06.190 --> 00:51:09.170
  • I pray for their caretakers that they would have peace
  • 00:51:09.170 --> 00:51:12.100
  • and lay hands on them and be healed.
  • 00:51:12.100 --> 00:51:14.100
  • I pray for depression and anxiety to be gone in Jesus' name.
  • 00:51:14.100 --> 00:51:18.030
  • I pray for healing for Crohn's disease,
  • 00:51:18.030 --> 00:51:21.160
  • ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis,
  • 00:51:21.160 --> 00:51:25.030
  • ALS, psoriasis, eczema.
  • 00:51:25.030 --> 00:51:29.140
  • I pray, Lord God, for bones that can't and haven't healed,
  • 00:51:29.140 --> 00:51:34.110
  • I pray for diabetes to be healed in Jesus' name.
  • 00:51:35.230 --> 00:51:39.080
  • I pray, Lord God, for osteoporosis to be healed
  • 00:51:39.080 --> 00:51:42.070
  • in Jesus' name, but more than anything, Lord,
  • 00:51:42.070 --> 00:51:44.140
  • I pray that You would infuse faith
  • 00:51:44.140 --> 00:51:46.260
  • through this television screen,
  • 00:51:46.260 --> 00:51:49.060
  • through this Internet connection,
  • 00:51:49.060 --> 00:51:52.170
  • phone, computer, whatever it is, Lord,
  • 00:51:52.170 --> 00:51:54.220
  • I pray that You would send faith through the airwaves.
  • 00:51:54.220 --> 00:51:57.080
  • We cast out fear, you have no place
  • 00:51:57.080 --> 00:52:00.170
  • in the homes and lives and hearts and minds of these people,
  • 00:52:00.170 --> 00:52:04.000
  • and I ask, Lord God, for an abundance of life
  • 00:52:04.000 --> 00:52:07.040
  • to pour forth from people like springs of living water,
  • 00:52:07.040 --> 00:52:11.150
  • healing right now anyone who can hear my voice.
  • 00:52:11.150 --> 00:52:14.160
  • Pain, suffering, sickness and death cannot exist
  • 00:52:15.280 --> 00:52:20.250
  • when the word of God is being preached,
  • 00:52:22.000 --> 00:52:23.230
  • and it is being preached right now.
  • 00:52:23.230 --> 00:52:25.110
  • This is God's word to you,
  • 00:52:25.110 --> 00:52:27.040
  • healing, faith, and hope for people watching,
  • 00:52:27.040 --> 00:52:31.170
  • and not people, but one person,
  • 00:52:31.170 --> 00:52:33.170
  • the one person that You took stripes for their healing,
  • 00:52:33.170 --> 00:52:36.110
  • the one person that You died for,
  • 00:52:36.110 --> 00:52:38.070
  • the one sin that caused You to give up everything
  • 00:52:38.070 --> 00:52:42.240
  • so that we can have more than enough.
  • 00:52:42.240 --> 00:52:45.170
  • In Jesus' name we pray, Yeshua (speaks in foreign language),
  • 00:52:45.170 --> 00:52:48.280
  • the First and the Last, the Lion of Judah
  • 00:52:48.280 --> 00:52:51.130
  • is roaring with healing,
  • 00:52:51.130 --> 00:52:53.140
  • and the Prince of Peace, the King of Righteousness
  • 00:52:54.290 --> 00:52:59.220
  • is visiting people right now.
  • 00:52:59.220 --> 00:53:01.110
  • In Jesus' name we receive it and believe it, amen.
  • 00:53:01.110 --> 00:53:05.100
  • - Amen, beautiful.
  • 00:53:05.100 --> 00:53:07.040
  • - Amen. - Wow.
  • 00:53:07.040 --> 00:53:08.120
  • (Laurie laughs) Lord, the perfection
  • 00:53:08.120 --> 00:53:11.070
  • and who and what You are manifest in our bodies
  • 00:53:11.070 --> 00:53:14.200
  • in Jesus' name.
  • 00:53:14.200 --> 00:53:15.200
  • "Patient Heal Thyself."
  • 00:53:15.200 --> 00:53:17.090
  • Jordan Rubin, you've been a part of the TBN family
  • 00:53:17.090 --> 00:53:21.110
  • for decades now.
  • 00:53:21.110 --> 00:53:23.130
  • You've created all sorts of TV programs and specials.
  • 00:53:23.130 --> 00:53:26.280
  • It feels like in a lot of ways
  • 00:53:26.280 --> 00:53:30.070
  • the Lord has accelerated this,
  • 00:53:31.110 --> 00:53:33.280
  • there's a freshness to what you're bringing,
  • 00:53:35.040 --> 00:53:37.090
  • the products that you're introducing to the TBN family.
  • 00:53:37.090 --> 00:53:41.100
  • This healing I think is accelerating,
  • 00:53:41.100 --> 00:53:44.280
  • and this is where it started, "Patient Heal Thyself."
  • 00:53:44.280 --> 00:53:48.260
  • The first time I interviewed Jordan Rubin was,
  • 00:53:48.260 --> 00:53:53.130
  • we think it was back in 2003 or 2004,
  • 00:53:53.130 --> 00:53:57.230
  • somewhere in that range,
  • 00:53:57.230 --> 00:53:59.000
  • and I can almost quote you what you said to me.
  • 00:53:59.000 --> 00:54:03.060
  • Okay, that only,
  • 00:54:03.060 --> 00:54:04.280
  • people can only remember revelation.
  • 00:54:04.280 --> 00:54:07.290
  • I couldn't have remembered what you were saying
  • 00:54:07.290 --> 00:54:09.250
  • if you weren't speaking revelation.
  • 00:54:09.250 --> 00:54:12.070
  • You weren't speaking to my mind,
  • 00:54:12.070 --> 00:54:13.270
  • you were speaking to my spirit,
  • 00:54:13.270 --> 00:54:15.220
  • and the idea that there are things we can do
  • 00:54:15.220 --> 00:54:19.040
  • and start our pathway towards healing
  • 00:54:19.040 --> 00:54:21.220
  • is an amazing thing, that's what we're about this month,
  • 00:54:21.220 --> 00:54:25.070
  • "Patient Heal Thyself."
  • 00:54:25.070 --> 00:54:27.100
  • Look at this before and after picture.
  • 00:54:27.100 --> 00:54:31.090
  • If you fit more in the before category,
  • 00:54:31.090 --> 00:54:34.040
  • "Patient Heal Thyself" is for you.
  • 00:54:34.040 --> 00:54:36.160
  • - Take a picture.
  • 00:54:36.160 --> 00:54:37.240
  • - Take a picture of your circumstances,
  • 00:54:37.240 --> 00:54:39.170
  • make it a memorial, remember where God brought you from.
  • 00:54:39.170 --> 00:54:44.020
  • And Jordan, just, you know, the month of August 2019,
  • 00:54:44.020 --> 00:54:48.130
  • "Patient Heal Thyself," call that number, get the book,
  • 00:54:48.130 --> 00:54:52.010
  • start your pathway for yourself
  • 00:54:52.010 --> 00:54:54.140
  • or someone in your family.
  • 00:54:54.140 --> 00:54:56.170
  • Get the book, order it now.
  • 00:54:56.170 --> 00:54:58.200
  • Your final thoughts,
  • 00:54:58.200 --> 00:54:59.250
  • just kinda exclamation point,
  • 00:55:00.260 --> 00:55:03.130
  • just your final thoughts on this entire subject?
  • 00:55:03.130 --> 00:55:07.160
  • - I really believe over the last few minutes,
  • 00:55:07.160 --> 00:55:10.090
  • I'm having the time of my life, you know why?
  • 00:55:10.090 --> 00:55:12.030
  • Because I really was created for this,
  • 00:55:12.030 --> 00:55:13.270
  • and I wanna thank you for giving me this opportunity.
  • 00:55:13.270 --> 00:55:17.130
  • I know I've done it, shared it before,
  • 00:55:17.130 --> 00:55:19.120
  • but it's been a long time, and there's new people watching.
  • 00:55:19.120 --> 00:55:22.090
  • I just know that we're gonna hear
  • 00:55:22.090 --> 00:55:24.250
  • amazing testimonies from this,
  • 00:55:24.250 --> 00:55:26.100
  • but people might be thinking, "Well Jordan,
  • 00:55:26.100 --> 00:55:28.050
  • "I wanna do what you're doing."
  • 00:55:28.050 --> 00:55:29.210
  • You can.
  • 00:55:29.210 --> 00:55:31.050
  • I have heard hundreds if not thousands of testimonies
  • 00:55:31.050 --> 00:55:33.240
  • of people who have purchased a book that I have written
  • 00:55:33.240 --> 00:55:37.030
  • and given it away.
  • 00:55:37.030 --> 00:55:38.130
  • Now, you get a chance to get your book,
  • 00:55:38.130 --> 00:55:41.000
  • but why not 12 books?
  • 00:55:41.000 --> 00:55:45.020
  • could be transformed,
  • 00:55:45.020 --> 00:55:46.160
  • so I wanna encourage you, don't just purchase the book,
  • 00:55:46.160 --> 00:55:48.180
  • don't just donate or give to this great ministry.
  • 00:55:48.180 --> 00:55:53.000
  • Give, give, give, and give
  • 00:55:53.000 --> 00:55:54.290
  • because you're gonna support the gospel,
  • 00:55:54.290 --> 00:55:57.170
  • support programs just like this,
  • 00:55:57.170 --> 00:55:59.200
  • and you're going to have something tangible
  • 00:55:59.200 --> 00:56:01.280
  • that you can give to people.
  • 00:56:01.280 --> 00:56:02.260
  • There have been atheists,
  • 00:56:02.260 --> 00:56:05.150
  • agnostic people, non-believers
  • 00:56:05.150 --> 00:56:07.080
  • that have come to my seminars and said,
  • 00:56:07.080 --> 00:56:08.160
  • "Jordan, I don't even believe the way you do
  • 00:56:08.160 --> 00:56:10.170
  • "but someone gave me this book, and I'm here."
  • 00:56:10.170 --> 00:56:13.060
  • And guess what they got to hear?
  • 00:56:13.060 --> 00:56:15.050
  • The love and message of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:56:15.050 --> 00:56:16.220
  • so I wanna encourage you,
  • 00:56:16.220 --> 00:56:18.160
  • give to this important ministry
  • 00:56:18.160 --> 00:56:20.000
  • that allows people like me to share with people like you
  • 00:56:20.000 --> 00:56:24.010
  • faith and hope,
