  • 00:00:01.010 --> 00:00:03.160
  • Creflo Dollar: Hey, welcome to a very unique edition
  • 00:00:05.270 --> 00:00:13.000
  • of "Your World."
  • 00:00:13.010 --> 00:00:14.210
  • Now, normally on this show, I counsel people with
  • 00:00:14.220 --> 00:00:17.120
  • specific needs or problems, but today I want to address
  • 00:00:17.130 --> 00:00:21.100
  • a need shared by everyone.
  • 00:00:21.110 --> 00:00:23.280
  • I want to address a problem we all have
  • 00:00:23.290 --> 00:00:27.030
  • called sickness and disease.
  • 00:00:27.040 --> 00:00:30.060
  • There's more than a billion of us on this planet
  • 00:00:30.070 --> 00:00:33.210
  • who live with some sort of illness.
  • 00:00:33.220 --> 00:00:36.080
  • We suffer from cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure,
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:40.050
  • headaches and backaches, obesity.
  • 00:00:40.060 --> 00:00:43.100
  • We go through all those things and even deal with things like
  • 00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:46.090
  • depression and suicidal thoughts, and so much more.
  • 00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:50.080
  • We spend countless hours at the doctor's, takin'
  • 00:00:50.090 --> 00:00:53.170
  • pharmaceutical drugs, and we end up feeling worse than before.
  • 00:00:53.180 --> 00:00:57.270
  • It's not supposed to be that way.
  • 00:00:57.280 --> 00:01:00.170
  • God does not want that for us, and that's not his plan at all.
  • 00:01:00.180 --> 00:01:04.140
  • Then why are so many people still living
  • 00:01:04.150 --> 00:01:07.160
  • with sickness, disease, and pain?
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:10.130
  • Today you're going to meet a friend of mine who has recovered
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:13.270
  • from a doctor's death sentence through the grace of God.
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:18.230
  • His pain and desire to recover, motivated him to keep fighting
  • 00:01:18.240 --> 00:01:22.290
  • for himself and others to help defeat sickness
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:26.060
  • and disease, once and for all.
  • 00:01:26.070 --> 00:01:29.120
  • You'll hear some information you've never heard before.
  • 00:01:29.130 --> 00:01:32.230
  • I guarantee, you'll have a new perspective on
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:35.260
  • God's healing power by the end of this program.
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:39.100
  • I'm Creflo Dollar, and this is "Your World."
  • 00:01:39.110 --> 00:01:43.030

  • 00:01:43.220 --> 00:01:51.080
  • 00:01:52.100 --> 00:01:55.290
  • Changing one life, time after time,
  • 00:01:56.000 --> 00:02:00.030
  • oh, Lord, we do it all for you.
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:04.220
  • Through the trials I see, I'll always believe
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:09.180
  • a new life starts with you.
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:13.190
  • Oh, change your world today.
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:18.110
  • Change is gonna come your way.
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:22.230
  • Change and get an understanding
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:27.080
  • his grace will transform you.
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:30.280
  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:36.270
  • Creflo: The wake-up call may happen when you receive a grave
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:40.190
  • diagnosis from your doctor that sickness or disease has invaded
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:44.120
  • your body, such as heart disease, diabetes,
  • 00:02:44.130 --> 00:02:48.090
  • high blood pressure, cancer, or even mental illness.
  • 00:02:48.100 --> 00:02:52.040
  • Your life suddenly flashes before your eyes as you try
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:55.070
  • to comprehend what the doctor just said to you.
  • 00:02:55.080 --> 00:02:58.020
  • Or your wake-up call might be a family member coughing up blood,
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:03:02.120
  • or a trip to the emergency room, due to chest pains.
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:05.200
  • God doesn't want that for us.
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:08.140
  • We're talking today about how to stop sickness in your body,
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:12.240
  • in its tracks, and if you haven't yet had that
  • 00:03:12.250 --> 00:03:16.000
  • wake-up call, we're talking about preventing sickness
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:20.100
  • from ever invading your body in the first place.
  • 00:03:20.110 --> 00:03:24.050
  • My guest today is Damon Davis, husband, father of five,
  • 00:03:24.060 --> 00:03:28.270
  • and author of the book "God Cures."
  • 00:03:28.280 --> 00:03:32.110
  • For the past decade of his life, Damon has been waging a secret,
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:36.060
  • debilitating battle against his own body.
  • 00:03:36.070 --> 00:03:39.260
  • He's here today to share his personal story of battling
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:43.020
  • incurable disease that sought to take his life.
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:46.210
  • He sought wisdom and understanding on not just
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:50.140
  • healing his body, but also aligning his body, spirit,
  • 00:03:50.150 --> 00:03:54.190
  • and his soul, and he's joining our discussion today.
  • 00:03:54.200 --> 00:03:59.160
  • So excited about this.
  • 00:03:59.170 --> 00:04:01.250
  • Ladies and gentlemen, please help me welcome Damon Davis
  • 00:04:01.260 --> 00:04:05.050
  • to the "Your World" show.
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:07.280
  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:04:07.290 --> 00:04:12.150
  • Creflo: I love it, man.
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:13.250
  • I love it. I love it.
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:16.140
  • Hey, I've already talked to our studio audience today,
  • 00:04:16.150 --> 00:04:21.060
  • and we're excited about this.
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:24.050
  • I'm excited about hearing your story, what you have discovered,
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:28.190
  • and really encouraging us to take responsibility
  • 00:04:28.200 --> 00:04:34.100
  • for our health.
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:36.230
  • I wanna hit at the high point at the very beginning,
  • 00:04:36.240 --> 00:04:39.090
  • what was goin' on with your body, and what was
  • 00:04:39.100 --> 00:04:41.050
  • the life-threatening disease you were dealing with.
  • 00:04:41.060 --> 00:04:43.180
  • Damon Davis: Sure.
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:45.040
  • If I could answer by backing up just one step?
  • 00:04:45.050 --> 00:04:48.190
  • Because I think that there's so many people in this audience,
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:52.250
  • across the globe that are watching, that have
  • 00:04:52.260 --> 00:04:55.000
  • a story to tell that doesn't start with them.
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:59.020
  • It starts with someone before them or maybe near them,
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:04.210
  • that is connected to them genetically by blood,
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:09.180
  • where sickness and disease, at some point, also live.
  • 00:05:09.190 --> 00:05:15.100
  • So I am the third generation of men who were diagnosed with
  • 00:05:15.110 --> 00:05:22.240
  • an incurable death sentence which I don't claim today.
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:27.210
  • My great-grandfather died, before 58 years old,
  • 00:05:27.220 --> 00:05:30.170
  • of heart disease.
  • 00:05:30.180 --> 00:05:32.040
  • My grandfather died, before 58 years old, of heart disease.
  • 00:05:32.050 --> 00:05:35.130
  • My father died before 58 years old.
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:38.130
  • Creflo: Wow, that sounds similar to my story of great-grandfather
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:42.280
  • died at 55 of a heart situation, heart attack.
  • 00:05:42.290 --> 00:05:48.010
  • Father died of a heart attack, and I caught mine.
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:51.180
  • So you're saying that we've got to consider
  • 00:05:51.190 --> 00:05:54.290
  • the generations before us--
  • 00:05:55.000 --> 00:05:57.000
  • Damon: Yeah, three generations.
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:58.180
  • Creflo: And take that into account.
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:00.030
  • Damon: You're asking me to hit it head-on.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:01.240
  • So I went to the Congo.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:04.240
  • I was doing a humanitarian program with Dikembe Mutombo.
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:08.130
  • He built the first modern hospital in
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:10.160
  • the Democratic Republic of Congo.
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:12.220
  • While I was there, we believed that I contracted something.
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:17.200
  • That's what the doctor said, that I would come back from
  • 00:06:17.210 --> 00:06:20.250
  • that trip in that country, wake up one morning,
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:24.190
  • and I couldn't move.
  • 00:06:24.200 --> 00:06:26.210
  • Now, literally, I could move, but I was stiff.
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:29.260
  • My hands would not close.
  • 00:06:29.270 --> 00:06:32.010
  • I felt like, if my feet touched the ground,
  • 00:06:32.020 --> 00:06:34.210
  • it was like walking on glass.
  • 00:06:34.220 --> 00:06:36.210
  • I had what seemed like a low-grade fever.
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:39.060
  • I knew something was wrong.
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:41.070
  • About 30 minutes of time wondering what was wrong,
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:44.130
  • I got really scared, and I called 9-1-1.
  • 00:06:44.140 --> 00:06:48.080
  • That led me on a journey which had me in a waiting room
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:55.030
  • where I was to receive a diagnosis that I had what they
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:59.020
  • believed to be an incurable disease, rheumatoid arthritis,
  • 00:06:59.030 --> 00:07:03.260
  • in an aggressive state.
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:05.190
  • Creflo: What about your emotions when you
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:07.000
  • hear somethin' like that?
  • 00:07:07.010 --> 00:07:09.090
  • Relate with us what type of emotions were going on,
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:12.230
  • the feelings you were having?
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.290
  • I mean, you're hearing this.
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:16.140
  • You're hearing you have a disease that there's
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:18.290
  • no cure for, and nobody can do anything about it.
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:23.150
  • Damon: "What's going to happen next?"
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:26.050
  • Sadness.
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:28.150
  • "Why me? What did I do to deserve it?"
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:32.180
  • Loneliness.
  • 00:07:32.190 --> 00:07:34.120
  • Being sick's the loneliest place in the world.
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:36.030
  • You start out seeing people having some
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:40.210
  • sort of sympathy for you.
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:43.010
  • Soon enough, those people--you feel this way--look
  • 00:07:43.020 --> 00:07:48.230
  • on as though you're a burden.
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:51.170
  • You can't go places and do things that you wanna do.
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:54.290
  • You're limited in your ability to function at work or at home.
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:58.120
  • You're prone to anxiety and anger.
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:08:02.130
  • You're mad at God. You're mad at the world.
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:06.200
  • I would wake up every day, swollen and in pain.
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:09.030
  • I couldn't eat what I wanted to eat.
  • 00:08:09.040 --> 00:08:12.070
  • I was limited in my ability to function, and I had to work,
  • 00:08:12.080 --> 00:08:15.180
  • father five children, running a business.
  • 00:08:15.190 --> 00:08:18.060
  • I mean, this is real stuff.
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:20.040
  • But I had to make a decision whether or not I was going to
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:23.000
  • allow it to consume my life, take over my life, or was
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:28.050
  • I going to something about it?
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:29.290
  • Creflo: You have a choice: You either master life, or
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:32.090
  • you allow life to master you, and what you're saying is this
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:36.090
  • decision that you're making is a decision where you're gonna say,
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:39.210
  • "Life is not gonna master me."
  • 00:08:39.220 --> 00:08:42.040
  • Damon: Exactly, and so I began to ask myself the question
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:44.220
  • "Why," but in a different way,
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:46.070
  • not "What did I do to end up here?"
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:48.030
  • but I began to ask myself a bigger question:
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:50.280
  • "Why sickness and disease at all?
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:53.280
  • Why does man get sick?"
  • 00:08:53.290 --> 00:08:55.280
  • And that led me on a journey to discover, over a decade,
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:58.060
  • how man can get well, and I discovered some
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:09:00.290
  • fascinating things that I talked about in "God Cures."
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:04.080
  • One of them is that we, as believers,
  • 00:09:04.090 --> 00:09:07.150
  • do not understand the law of physics.
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:10.210
  • God created the universe, and he established laws.
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:14.180
  • There is action, and there is reaction,
  • 00:09:14.190 --> 00:09:17.040
  • and we live in this system, this world,
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:20.050
  • and things that we do, without question,
  • 00:09:20.060 --> 00:09:22.260
  • can lead us down a path of sickness and disease.
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:25.030
  • Creflo: Absolutely.
  • 00:09:25.040 --> 00:09:26.130
  • Damon: What I found that the vast majority of believers will
  • 00:09:26.140 --> 00:09:28.260
  • find themselves arriving at the place where they immediately
  • 00:09:28.270 --> 00:09:31.280
  • begin claiming supernatural healing--and it does exist--and
  • 00:09:31.290 --> 00:09:36.000
  • they're at an altar, and they're asking God to remove what's
  • 00:09:36.010 --> 00:09:39.150
  • going on in their body, and many people are healed, but within
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:45.010
  • a very short period of time, from that moment of healing, the
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:49.010
  • people who threw the crutches away are now back on crutches.
  • 00:09:49.020 --> 00:09:52.170
  • People who've gotten out of wheelchairs
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:53.290
  • are back rolling in them.
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:55.090
  • Creflo: Brother, tell the truth.
  • 00:09:55.100 --> 00:09:56.210
  • Damon: And we ask ourselves, "What's wrong with this?"
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:10:00.050
  • And then we see pastors, men and women of the faith,
  • 00:10:00.060 --> 00:10:04.220
  • that are also being overcome by sickness and disease,
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:09.220
  • and I said, "Something is terribly wrong."
  • 00:10:09.230 --> 00:10:13.130
  • So I began a journey to discover what is really going on
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:18.200
  • genetically, and what I found myself staring into the face
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:22.200
  • of was a real devil who has a mission, and that is to
  • 00:10:22.210 --> 00:10:27.160
  • limit every single person in this audience, me,
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:31.160
  • every single person watching, limit us from doing what we
  • 00:10:31.170 --> 00:10:34.070
  • were designed to do in this world, to limit us from ever
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:37.120
  • discovering what God created us to do, to limit us from
  • 00:10:37.130 --> 00:10:41.130
  • ever pursuing real purpose and real destiny.
  • 00:10:41.140 --> 00:10:45.150
  • So I began this journey to discover what's really going
  • 00:10:45.160 --> 00:10:47.250
  • on here, and I looked at it from a natural standpoint.
  • 00:10:47.260 --> 00:10:52.150
  • I looked at it from a supernatural standpoint.
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:54.110
  • Dr. Dollar, I consulted with some of the best, most brilliant
  • 00:10:54.120 --> 00:10:58.000
  • minds in conventional medicine, holistic care, thought leaders,
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:11:03.110
  • and I looked at it scientifically,
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:05.220
  • and I discovered something: "epigenetics."
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:09.040
  • In the simplest of terms, it's called "gene expression."
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:12.210
  • It's why they now say that alcoholism is
  • 00:11:12.220 --> 00:11:15.020
  • a disease or that there could be issues of pornography
  • 00:11:15.030 --> 00:11:19.170
  • or adultery or violence in your history
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:23.170
  • or heart disease, as in mine, or cancer.
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:26.240
  • Someone's got cancer, and the first question the doctor
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:29.010
  • asks you is "Who else in your family had cancer?"
  • 00:11:29.020 --> 00:11:32.250
  • There's something in your DNA, in your genes,
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:36.050
  • that is becoming expressed.
  • 00:11:36.060 --> 00:11:38.190
  • Something is triggering sickness and disease in our lifetime,
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:43.210
  • and I believe it's an absolute work of the devil,
  • 00:11:43.220 --> 00:11:47.000
  • and he's done a great job attacking us spiritually,
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:50.060
  • and he's done a great job attacking us in our soul,
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:53.290
  • the seat of our affections.
  • 00:11:54.000 --> 00:11:55.130
  • Creflo: That is the key.
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:11:57.010
  • That's one thing that, in the natural and even in church, that
  • 00:11:57.020 --> 00:12:01.040
  • we've ignored is the area of your soul cause your emotions,
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:05.140
  • so your emotions, if you're not aware of what you're talkin'
  • 00:12:05.150 --> 00:12:08.150
  • about, Satan will ride your emotions like a wave,
  • 00:12:08.160 --> 00:12:13.020
  • moving you away from the will of God.
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:15.230
  • There's a will of God, signaled on the inside of those cells,
  • 00:12:15.240 --> 00:12:20.130
  • so now the decision you make to either operate
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:24.120
  • in ease or dis-ease, it starts there.
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:31.020
  • I found out a lot of people died from cancer,
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:33.210
  • and it wasn't the cancer that killed them.
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:35.270
  • They died from another situation, a heart attack,
  • 00:12:35.280 --> 00:12:38.220
  • stressed over the whole diagnosis of cancer and
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:41.240
  • the other stuff, and I'm like, "How does that happen?"
  • 00:12:41.250 --> 00:12:45.090
  • And I think that there has to be an involvement of the soul area,
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:50.050
  • which is the connection between your spirit
  • 00:12:50.060 --> 00:12:52.190
  • and your physical body.
  • 00:12:52.200 --> 00:12:55.020
  • Bring us up through that area of the soul.
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:58.070
  • I just think this is a missing link where healing's concerned.
  • 00:12:58.080 --> 00:13:03.010
  • Damon: It is.
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:04.140
  • I was laying in the bed, and I did what so many people do.
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:07.040
  • One morning, discouraged--it's a Saturday--
  • 00:13:07.050 --> 00:13:09.190
  • "I should be out with my kids,"
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:11.040
  • "I should be enjoying the sunshine," and I was
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:13.020
  • absolutely, utterly depressed, and I did what we all do the
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:16.220
  • moment the doctor tells you what you've got--most of us do.
  • 00:13:16.230 --> 00:13:19.210
  • You immediately go online and begin to research.
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:23.010
  • Worst thing in the world you could do.
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:24.270
  • Next thing you know, you're dyin'.
  • 00:13:24.280 --> 00:13:26.290
  • That's how it makes you feel.
  • 00:13:27.000 --> 00:13:29.220
  • I believe God was tryin' to tell me that
  • 00:13:29.230 --> 00:13:31.020
  • there's something more happening.
  • 00:13:31.030 --> 00:13:33.020
  • There's something happening that we have missed
  • 00:13:33.030 --> 00:13:36.020
  • that the doctors don't understand.
  • 00:13:36.030 --> 00:13:38.090
  • Even holistic care professionals don't understand,
  • 00:13:38.100 --> 00:13:40.290
  • and that is how we got sick in the first place.
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:44.040
  • Creflo: 'Cause if you don't answer that question,
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.210
  • Damon, it can come back.
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:47.180
  • Damon: You'll never find--
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:48.280
  • Creflo: 'Cause you don't know how you got there
  • 00:13:48.290 --> 00:13:50.080
  • in the first place.
  • 00:13:50.090 --> 00:13:51.180
  • Damon: No, you'll go to the altar.
  • 00:13:51.190 --> 00:13:52.280
  • You'll be healed.
  • 00:13:52.290 --> 00:13:54.080
  • Nothing will change, and you'll find yourself back,
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:57.130
  • in many cases, worse than where you started.
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:14:00.120
  • God created our bodies, and science has now proven that, if
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:04.250
  • we can move into a place called "homeostasis"--that's basically
  • 00:14:04.260 --> 00:14:09.190
  • a souped-up scientific word for "balance"--your body will begin
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:14.150
  • a process of healing itself, and we will not only move into
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:19.000
  • a place where our bodies will regenerate, but I felt like
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:23.180
  • the Lord was telling me, "How the switch was flipped
  • 00:14:23.190 --> 00:14:28.050
  • on for gene expression, Damon, we can switch it off."
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:35.180
  • Whoa.
  • 00:14:35.190 --> 00:14:37.160
  • Creflo: So now you're gonna tell us about the balance?
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:39.090
  • 'Cause I'm sittin' up here like--
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:40.210
  • Damon: And so I'm like, "Who are we?"
  • 00:14:40.220 --> 00:14:42.250
  • God took me to the baseline.
  • 00:14:42.260 --> 00:14:44.180
  • There is a proper working order to us.
  • 00:14:44.190 --> 00:14:47.200
  • The soul, the seat of our affections,
  • 00:14:47.210 --> 00:14:49.210
  • our wants, our wills, our thoughts, our motivations,
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:54.190
  • they are connected to the world.
  • 00:14:54.200 --> 00:14:57.040
  • It is our spirit that is connected to an Almighty God.
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:15:00.260
  • Somehow in our life and in mine in particular,
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:04.290
  • I had gotten out of balance.
  • 00:15:05.000 --> 00:15:07.020
  • My spirit was no longer leading my life.
  • 00:15:07.030 --> 00:15:10.050
  • My soul was in charge. My spirit took a backseat.
  • 00:15:10.060 --> 00:15:14.170
  • I had moved out of alignment, out of a place of homeostasis.
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:18.160
  • My soul was raging with my wants and my desires in this world.
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:23.120
  • My spirit was almost nonexistent in terms of me feeding
  • 00:15:23.130 --> 00:15:27.060
  • my spirit man, and, suddenly, I became fractured.
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:32.030
  • Suddenly, my cells became fractured.
  • 00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:35.180
  • Suddenly I flipped on a switch that science calls epigenetics,
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:41.170
  • and gene expression occurs.
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:44.190
  • And if you look at my profile from childhood,
  • 00:15:44.200 --> 00:15:48.250
  • it started with heart disease.
  • 00:15:48.260 --> 00:15:51.190
  • Now it moved to an autoimmune genetic disorder that,
  • 00:15:51.200 --> 00:15:55.290
  • if I didn't do something about, the prognosis was that within
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:16:00.050
  • 24 to 36 months, I would very well be bedridden,
  • 00:16:00.060 --> 00:16:04.190
  • and I said, "Hold on.
  • 00:16:04.200 --> 00:16:06.150
  • If I could switch it on, I'm gonna switch it off,
  • 00:16:06.160 --> 00:16:10.240
  • and I'm gonna begin the process," watch me now,
  • 00:16:10.250 --> 00:16:14.070
  • "of getting back into alignment,"
  • 00:16:14.080 --> 00:16:17.060
  • and it's the hardest thing in the world when you're
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:18.220
  • sick because you feel the pain, because you're having to take
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:22.270
  • the medication, because you get up every day, having to manage
  • 00:16:22.280 --> 00:16:26.230
  • your way through what is real.
  • 00:16:26.240 --> 00:16:29.020
  • You don't feel like reading the Word.
  • 00:16:29.030 --> 00:16:31.230
  • You don't feel like praying all the time.
  • 00:16:31.240 --> 00:16:34.130
  • You don't feel like declaring what things are not even
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:36.280
  • though the reality is staring at you, but that's the soul.
  • 00:16:36.290 --> 00:16:43.040
  • It wasn't until I completely surrendered.
  • 00:16:43.050 --> 00:16:46.030
  • I got in that Word.
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:48.080
  • I discovered who I was and who God made me to be,
  • 00:16:48.090 --> 00:16:53.240
  • and only then was I ready to discover how to live my life
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:59.100
  • and how to handle my body.
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:02.080
  • Creflo: Because you begin to achieve balance,
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:04.170
  • spirit, soul, and body.
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:05.280
  • Damon: You got it.
  • 00:17:05.290 --> 00:17:07.180
  • As I moved into alignment, my spirit leading my soul,
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:11.190
  • my soul governing my body, something happened.
  • 00:17:11.200 --> 00:17:15.150
  • My body started to respond, and when I say it began to respond,
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:20.170
  • it began to respond.
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:22.200
  • I began to feel better. My energy increased.
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:27.020
  • The pain began to subside.
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:29.020
  • It was like God gave me a little crack in the door and said,
  • 00:17:29.030 --> 00:17:31.020
  • "Okay, now, I got your attention."
  • 00:17:31.030 --> 00:17:33.170
  • Creflo: People who are--and, listen, and help me out.
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:36.190
  • People who are not Christians and who don't get in the Word,
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:41.010
  • will be in a circle, tryin' to find out what's wrong and most
  • 00:17:41.020 --> 00:17:43.260
  • likely will never because they will address their physical body
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:47.090
  • through medication, and some will try to address their bodies
  • 00:17:47.100 --> 00:17:51.030
  • through supplements, but if you do not deal with the soul area,
  • 00:17:51.040 --> 00:17:57.040
  • the problem in the soul area will release a whole lot of
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:59.230
  • other unhealthy chemicals, and you're not gonna really be able
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:03.040
  • to deal with the soul area until you deal with your spirit,
  • 00:18:03.050 --> 00:18:08.010
  • and the only way you can get a spiritual mind
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:11.060
  • is to get the Word of God.
  • 00:18:11.070 --> 00:18:12.260
  • He said, "My Word is Spirit," a'ight, only way you're
  • 00:18:12.270 --> 00:18:15.270
  • gonna get a spiritual mind.
  • 00:18:15.280 --> 00:18:17.070
  • And here's what it said, Damon.
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:18.170
  • In Romans chapter 8, in 6, he says, "To be carnally minded
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:22.250
  • is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:29.090
  • The only way you're gonna have a spiritual mind--the only way
  • 00:18:29.100 --> 00:18:34.070
  • you're gonna have a spiritual mind is to get in the Word of
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:37.040
  • God, which gets your spirit in line with the Word of God,
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:40.280
  • and then your spirit in line with the Word of God begins
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:43.170
  • to impact your mind, your soul area, your thinker, your feeler,
  • 00:18:43.180 --> 00:18:47.050
  • your chooser, and then, once your spirit is aligned with your
  • 00:18:47.060 --> 00:18:51.010
  • soul, and which is aligned with the Word of God, then your body
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:56.070
  • will get in line because your soul--we're tryin' to attack her
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:59.290
  • from our body first, while we ignore the soul and have no clue
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:06.200
  • on how to deal with our spirit.
  • 00:19:06.210 --> 00:19:08.130
  • Listen, every area that's dis-ease--watch this--there's
  • 00:19:08.140 --> 00:19:13.050
  • financial sickness.
  • 00:19:13.060 --> 00:19:15.180
  • There's a dis-easement where your physical body is concerned.
  • 00:19:15.190 --> 00:19:18.140
  • There's a dis-ease, sick relationships.
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:21.070
  • All of it can be resolved.
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:24.050
  • Damon: I thought that God was just seeking to cure my body,
  • 00:19:24.060 --> 00:19:28.080
  • but what he was actually seeking to do was to cure
  • 00:19:28.090 --> 00:19:32.090
  • every area of my life.
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.250
  • Creflo: Man, you better shut up, man.
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:35.230
  • Tryin' to tell you, you better--so why would I expect
  • 00:19:35.240 --> 00:19:38.230
  • a God of wholeness to only be concerned
  • 00:19:38.240 --> 00:19:41.180
  • about one-third of who you are?
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.150
  • Damon: He's not.
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:46.020
  • Creflo: Let me ask you a question: Would you agree
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:48.210
  • that the Word of God is medicine?
  • 00:19:48.220 --> 00:19:51.100
  • Damon: Emphatically, "Yes."
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:53.010
  • Creflo: Yeah, Word of God is medicine.
  • 00:19:53.020 --> 00:19:55.200
  • Now, here's the problem: So the Word of God's medicine,
  • 00:19:55.210 --> 00:20:01.040
  • but Christian folks--watch this--won't get
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:03.240
  • in the Word anymore.
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:05.040
  • There is a drought going on in this world right now, where we
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:09.050
  • would prefer inspirational talks over getting in the Word.
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:14.130
  • We prefer self-help material versus getting in the Word.
  • 00:20:14.140 --> 00:20:19.280
  • I'll ask you another question: Is there something that happens
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:24.190
  • by openin' that Word up, exposin' it to your eyes,
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:28.240
  • exposin' it to your ears, and getting it in your mouth,
  • 00:20:28.250 --> 00:20:32.200
  • or is that just a waste of time?
  • 00:20:32.210 --> 00:20:35.070
  • Damon: I'm gonna answer it this way: No, there's something
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:38.030
  • significant happening beyond academic and beyond what we know
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:42.270
  • to be true, which is, when you feed your body, your mind, and
  • 00:20:42.280 --> 00:20:48.290
  • your spirit, with God's Word, transformation is taking place,
  • 00:20:49.000 --> 00:20:54.110
  • but something else is happening, and I know it's a big thought,
  • 00:20:54.120 --> 00:20:58.000
  • and I know I keep harping on it: What were you created to do?
  • 00:20:58.010 --> 00:21:03.080
  • What did he, God, put in that gene to express in the world?
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:10.110
  • Your music, a book, a message that would change hearts and
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:15.130
  • minds of people, what gift and calling is in you
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:20.080
  • on that gene sequence that he, the devil,
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:24.220
  • is working so hard to ever get expressed?
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:28.240
  • So when you pull out that Word, you are saying, "I agree, God,
  • 00:21:28.250 --> 00:21:34.030
  • with what you want to see happen in my life, in this world
  • 00:21:34.040 --> 00:21:39.230
  • that you created, on this timeline."
  • 00:21:39.240 --> 00:21:42.250
  • You are declaring war on the devil
  • 00:21:42.260 --> 00:21:46.230
  • when you get yourself serious about his Word.
  • 00:21:46.240 --> 00:21:52.100
  • Creflo: Whoo.
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:54.180
  • male announcer: Next week on "Your World."
  • 00:21:56.260 --> 00:22:00.130
  • Damon: The world has got us believing that to pop a pill is
  • 00:22:00.140 --> 00:22:03.070
  • the solution to lose weight, to get in shape, to get healthy.
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:08.090
  • It put me furthest from the truth, but it doesn't
  • 00:22:08.100 --> 00:22:10.290
  • have to be so extreme.
  • 00:22:11.000 --> 00:22:13.100
  • There are simple things that we can do that make major
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:16.080
  • swings in our health, and I believe that's
  • 00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:19.150
  • what this whole journey is about.
  • 00:22:19.160 --> 00:22:21.200
  • It's a reset.
  • 00:22:21.210 --> 00:22:23.180
  • It's getting started for the greatest days of your life.
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:26.140
  • It's doing differently than we did before,
  • 00:22:26.150 --> 00:22:28.190
  • and you'll see tremendous results.
  • 00:22:28.200 --> 00:22:31.070

  • seems that no one truly understands.
  • 00:24:04.200 --> 00:24:07.100
  • Your doctor prescribes medication that only manages
  • 00:24:07.110 --> 00:24:10.040
  • your symptoms, and there's no real end in sight.
  • 00:24:10.050 --> 00:24:13.010
