  • (Singing) I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:01.030 --> 00:00:12.080
  • I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:12.090 --> 00:00:20.210
  • KENNETH: Hello, everybody. Welcome to Friday. Amen.
  • 00:00:22.100 --> 00:00:25.010
  • Hallelujah. This is the Believer's Voice of Victory
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:27.090
  • broadcast. I've got some good news for you. Jesus
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:29.220
  • is alive at the right hand of God. He is the Lord God
  • 00:00:29.230 --> 00:00:35.010
  • advocate general of the church. Hallelujah. And He never
  • 00:00:35.020 --> 00:00:39.190
  • fails. And prayer changes things, and faith works. Glory
  • 00:00:39.200 --> 00:00:43.180
  • to God. And you're healed, whether you know it or not.
  • 00:00:43.190 --> 00:00:46.240
  • (Laughs) Glory to God. Father, thank You today. We praise You
  • 00:00:46.250 --> 00:00:52.200
  • and worship You in Jesus' name. Amen. Let's go back to Mark
  • 00:00:52.210 --> 00:00:56.290
  • 11:23, "For verily I say unto you," Jesus said, "Whosoever
  • 00:00:57.000 --> 00:01:07.160
  • shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, be thou cast into
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:19.250
  • the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart," or in his inner
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:30.100
  • man," but shall believe that those things which he saith
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:36.250
  • shall come to pass; he shall," or he will, "have whatsoever he
  • 00:01:36.260 --> 00:01:45.260
  • saith." Now, I will--I shall--we use, "I will," today. And
  • 00:01:45.270 --> 00:01:51.080
  • there's no stronger affirmation. There is no stronger statement
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:58.230
  • in the English language than, "I will," or "He will." "He will
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:09.080
  • have whatsoever he says." Now, who said that? Jesus said that.
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:17.210
  • You notice it's written in red. Red words always win. Amen.
  • 00:02:17.220 --> 00:02:22.000
  • Praise God. Hallelujah. Now, faith--where does faith come
  • 00:02:22.010 --> 00:02:28.090
  • from? All right. I'll tell you what, let's look over here in
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:34.040
  • the book of Romans because we need to touch on this right now
  • 00:02:34.050 --> 00:02:38.000
  • because of what we're about to get into. In the 12th chapter of
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:44.090
  • the book of Romans and the 3rd verse, "I say, unto you through
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:50.250
  • the--I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:54.190
  • is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he
  • 00:02:54.200 --> 00:02:57.230
  • ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:03:00.240
  • dealt to every man the measure of faith." Now, that's not every
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:03.200
  • man in the world, because I Thessalonians says, "all men
  • 00:03:03.210 --> 00:03:07.020
  • don't have faith." Wicked and unreasonable men don't have
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:09.220
  • faith. Well, you--He said, "every man among you." So every
  • 00:03:09.230 --> 00:03:13.010
  • born-again believer has the measure of faith. All of us
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:17.040
  • start out with exactly the same measure. Now, you can grow it
  • 00:03:17.050 --> 00:03:21.130
  • bigger. You--it won't stay just stagnant. Spiritual things are
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:26.250
  • always moving. Well, it's the same thing in the natural world.
  • 00:03:26.260 --> 00:03:30.080
  • If you don't use it, you lose it. Now--so the measure of
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:35.210
  • faith, how did--how did you get that? Okay, let's go over here
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:40.060
  • and look at the book of Ephesians and look in the 2nd
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:44.030
  • chapter. Ephesians 2, and notice Verse 8, "For by grace are you
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:57.070
  • saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:04:03.240
  • God." What, the grace or the faith? Okay, remember what we
  • 00:04:03.250 --> 00:04:10.130
  • read in Romans 4:16, "For--therefore it is of faith,
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:15.200
  • so that it might be by grace." So back off. No faith, no grace.
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:22.080
  • It doesn't start off with grace. Grace is the end. God wants to
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:27.140
  • treat every human being as if sin had never happened. And
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:31.110
  • that's what is--grace is. So faith is first. Without the
  • 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:34.200
  • faith, can't get the grace. So the gift--well, of course, both
  • 00:04:34.210 --> 00:04:39.030
  • of them are gifts, but they come in order. The first gift was
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:42.160
  • faith. Now, "For by grace ye are saved through faith; and that
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:48.000
  • not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." Now then, we can
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:54.060
  • go back to Romans 10 and we look at Verse 17, "So then faith
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:05:04.240
  • cometh," faith came, "by hearing, and the hearing came by
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:12.190
  • the word of God." The faith was in His Word and is in His Word.
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:19.130
  • And it's His faith. Isn't that wonderful? It's His faith. Now,
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:24.100
  • there is natural human faith. Everybody has that, and
  • 00:05:24.110 --> 00:05:28.020
  • everybody needs that. You need--that's what we've been
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:32.010
  • talking about when we're talking about common sense or
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:36.150
  • in--walking in the natural. You--there's things in the
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:39.150
  • natural you're going to have to do, and you better have some
  • 00:05:39.160 --> 00:05:41.260
  • common sense about some things. Amen. But you can't live by
  • 00:05:41.270 --> 00:05:46.190
  • faith and walk in common sense because that's walking by sight
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:52.090
  • instead of by faith. Then we talked about that. Now--so when
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:58.160
  • you heard of Jesus, you heard Him preached. You heard the Word
  • 00:05:58.170 --> 00:06:06.270
  • and you believed it. The second you believe--the
  • 00:06:06.280 --> 00:06:12.280
  • second--the--you see, it's at the speed of light. The very
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:18.040
  • second that that occurred, in a combination of your mind and
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:23.110
  • your spirit being, well, the faith was there. And that faith
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:28.060
  • caused you to be born again, re-created, not just forgiven.
  • 00:06:28.070 --> 00:06:31.160
  • "Therefore any man that is in Christ, created in--created--"
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:39.220
  • "Preach the gospel to every creature," every created, all
  • 00:06:39.230 --> 00:06:45.230
  • created. When you made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life,
  • 00:06:45.240 --> 00:06:49.110
  • your spirit man died, literally died the death on the cross, and
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:56.020
  • you were born again. That's not just a figure of speech. That
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:07:00.140
  • actually took place. Well, I want to tell you something else
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:04.170
  • that took place at the same time. There's not enough talked
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:07.220
  • about it. It should be all preached at the same time. At
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:11.000
  • the same time that you were born again, you were healed, because
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:15.200
  • Himself bore our sins. Okay, now that--that--He bore our sins,
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:23.260
  • our iniquities on the cross, by whose stripes you were healed.
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:28.080
  • See, you were--you were actually--how can I say this,
  • 00:07:28.090 --> 00:07:33.220
  • Lord? Make it clear. Salvation was released in the Spirit by
  • 00:07:33.230 --> 00:07:40.210
  • Jesus, by the Holy Ghost. What have we been redeemed from? Do
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:46.120
  • you know? Well, we've been redeemed from sin. Well, that's
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:50.250
  • true, but that's not the whole picture. The Scripture says
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:53.100
  • "we've been redeemed from the curse of the law," Christ "being
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:58.170
  • made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that
  • 00:07:58.180 --> 00:08:02.140
  • hangeth on a tree: so that the blessing of Abraham might come
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:05.080
  • on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus." Now, everything,
  • 00:08:05.090 --> 00:08:09.020
  • spiritual death, disease or sickness and poverty were under
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:19.200
  • that curse. That curse came on the earth when Adam committed
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:26.110
  • high treason and turned himself and the earth over to the devil.
  • 00:08:26.120 --> 00:08:33.010
  • Now, Jesus paid the penalty. He went to hell and paid the
  • 00:08:33.020 --> 00:08:41.090
  • penalty for that. Now, under the old covenant, God has always
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:48.010
  • been a healing God right from the very beginning. He's always
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:53.200
  • provided healing for His people. Let me remind you God's name,
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:09:01.040
  • "almighty God," as it's translated in English, "God the
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:15.230
  • healer," "God--Jehovah Rapha," "the God," "I am." See, "I am,"
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:25.080
  • is translated in the English Bible as, "almighty God." "I
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:29.170
  • am." You find it--for instance, over there in Exodus, 15th
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:36.130
  • chapter, "I am the Lord that healeth thee." "I am the Lord,"
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:44.070
  • capital L-O-R-D. That's saying the same thing, "I am. I am. I
  • 00:09:44.080 --> 00:09:51.100
  • am." God said, "I am." Now, that's translated "almighty
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:58.120
  • God." But now, listen to what He said. "I am Jehovah Rapha." "I
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:07.060
  • am your healer." "Well, you know, I believe healing's passed
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:17.170
  • away." Really? "Well, I just believe that God doesn't heal
  • 00:10:17.180 --> 00:10:24.180
  • anymore." Well, I guess He changed His name, huh? No, He
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:29.210
  • never changes! Ha-ha-ha, phew, that's shouting ground. He never
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:34.140
  • changes! If He was ever--if He was ever Jehovah Rapha, He's
  • 00:10:34.150 --> 00:10:39.020
  • Jehovah Rapha now, and He will be Jehovah Rapha throughout the
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:42.150
  • eternities, glory to God, because He doesn't ever change.
  • 00:10:42.160 --> 00:10:45.110
  • And "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever."
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:53.010
  • Glory to God. All of the message of divine healing is wrapped up
  • 00:10:53.020 --> 00:10:58.230
  • in that. But now, to receive it, you attach faith to it. The
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:07.060
  • woman with the issue of blood, she believed it in her heart,
  • 00:11:07.070 --> 00:11:09.180
  • she said it with her mouth, "If I but touch the hem of His
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:12.100
  • garment, I will be made whole." She did what she said, touched
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:21.210
  • His garment. Jesus, knowing that power had gone out of Him,
  • 00:11:21.220 --> 00:11:26.210
  • stopped and said, "Who touched me?" Then He told her,
  • 00:11:26.220 --> 00:11:30.280
  • "Daughter, your faith made you whole." Now, that faith came
  • 00:11:30.290 --> 00:11:39.170
  • into you and it's in you right now if you know Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:11:39.180 --> 00:11:43.270
  • And you can have it before I finish the next sentence. Just
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:47.130
  • say, "Jesus, come into my heart. I receive it. Take my life and
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:50.160
  • do something with it." That's all it takes. Now, of course,
  • 00:11:50.170 --> 00:11:54.100
  • you--that's just the beginning. But now, be--listen with careful
  • 00:11:54.110 --> 00:11:59.050
  • ears. I was with my spiritual father, Oral Roberts, and--in a
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:10.200
  • meeting. Of course, I was part of the flight crew. I was a
  • 00:12:10.210 --> 00:12:14.040
  • student there at Oral Roberts University. And I--my
  • 00:12:14.050 --> 00:12:21.240
  • lightning-fast mind figured out, a few days later, he can't get
  • 00:12:21.250 --> 00:12:24.090
  • out of town without me because I'm part of the flight crew. But
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:27.170
  • I--in a meeting, I heard him say this. He said there was a--one
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:32.260
  • of his partners that--and he was in the hospital. And he went--he
  • 00:12:32.270 --> 00:12:40.240
  • went up there to pray and lay hands on him and--for God to
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:45.010
  • heal him. Now, if I remember this right, it was--I believe it
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:51.090
  • was his--I believe it was his wife. Maybe it--well, anyway,
  • 00:12:51.100 --> 00:12:53.210
  • it's been 50 years ago. Forgive me, all right? But here's the
  • 00:12:53.220 --> 00:12:57.100
  • point. Talking about her husband, she said, "Brother
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:13:01.040
  • Roberts, we've got all kinds of faith. And we don't understand
  • 00:13:01.050 --> 00:13:08.200
  • why he's not healed." Now, listen to what he said. "You can
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:13.280
  • have all kinds of faith and never get healed." "What?"
  • 00:13:13.290 --> 00:13:18.100
  • "Yeah. You can have all kinds of faith and never get healed. You
  • 00:13:18.110 --> 00:13:26.160
  • have to release your faith." Praise God. You have to release
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:32.270
  • it. Faith is like money. Money in the pocket can't buy
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:42.050
  • anything. It has to get out of your pocket. I mean, you can
  • 00:13:42.060 --> 00:13:48.040
  • walk through the grocery store, have $100 in your pocket, walk
  • 00:13:48.050 --> 00:13:53.200
  • through there and just walk out hungry. Let me give you--let me
  • 00:13:53.210 --> 00:14:00.180
  • give you a better--let me give you a better illustration of
  • 00:14:00.190 --> 00:14:02.120
  • that. There was a man that I heard about years ago. He was in
  • 00:14:02.130 --> 00:14:09.230
  • poverty. This man was--and he was sick, and he literally--he
  • 00:14:09.240 --> 00:14:14.220
  • starved to death. And they went and after--you know, they did an
  • 00:14:14.230 --> 00:14:22.140
  • autopsy on him to make sure somebody didn't kill him, but he
  • 00:14:22.150 --> 00:14:26.250
  • just starved to death. And he lived in a--just in a
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:31.110
  • ramshackle. And he just had just old boxes. The room was just
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:38.230
  • full of boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes, shoe boxes and
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:43.140
  • little boxes and little larger boxes all over the room. And
  • 00:14:43.150 --> 00:14:47.030
  • they thought, "Well, you know, he's just an old hoarder. He
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:49.210
  • just can't--just don't turn stuff loose, you know?" They
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:53.000
  • found $34.000 in cash in that man's room; $34.000, and he
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:15:02.220
  • starved to death. A person full of faith can starve spiritually
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:11.120
  • because they don't ever turn it loose. Now, let's look here in
  • 00:15:11.130 --> 00:15:20.210
  • the book of James. Go over there with me to the book of James
  • 00:15:20.220 --> 00:15:24.170
  • right quick. And look right there in that 1st chapter of
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:33.290
  • James in the 22nd verse. "Be ye doers of the word, and not
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:47.280
  • hearers only." Huh? "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:54.250
  • by the Word of God." And you can--I mean, you can be so
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:16:00.100
  • thrilled with the Word and you can go to meetings and you can
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:04.080
  • do like Gloria and me. You go to bed at night and lay my
  • 00:16:04.090 --> 00:16:08.030
  • telephone down there and lay there and listen to Brother
  • 00:16:08.040 --> 00:16:10.230
  • Hagin. You can lay there and listen to Bill Winston. You can
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:13.070
  • lay there and listen to Keith Moore. You can lay
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:15.010
  • there--amen--and just get so excited and just so thrilled
  • 00:16:15.020 --> 00:16:19.130
  • with the Word, and don't ever act on it and you're faith fat.
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:24.210
  • "What?" Yeah, you're never releasing your faith. You never
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:31.290
  • receive your healing. You just enjoy hearing it. Oh, glory to
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:35.290
  • God. Yes. Mm! Ha-ha. And you--so you--if you don't ever put it
  • 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:42.010
  • into action, "be ye a doer of the word, and not hearers only."
  • 00:16:42.020 --> 00:16:49.030
  • Now, look in the 2nd chapter and the 17th verse, "Even so--"
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:57.130
  • Listen to this now. "Even so faith, if it hath not works--"
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:17:02.230
  • Don't let the word, "works," throw you. Look--take your Greek
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:06.110
  • and just look it up. It means corresponding action. Be a doer.
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:13.010
  • Correspond your believing by acting. "Well, what does that
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:17.260
  • mean, Brother Copeland?" Well, let me ask you this: What would
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:21.040
  • you do if you were healed? "Well, Brother Copeland, you
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:27.270
  • know, I'm paralyzed from the waist down." Well, what would
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:32.020
  • you do? "Are you kidding? I'd jump up out of this chair and
  • 00:17:32.030 --> 00:17:34.270
  • I'd run around this room." Do your best to do it. You believe
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:39.190
  • it in your heart. Fill your heart up with faith. "Yeah, but
  • 00:17:39.200 --> 00:17:42.200
  • I can't." No, see, you haven't got any faith. Well, let me take
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:46.130
  • that back. You've got faith, but you're not releasing it. You're
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:49.200
  • not releasing it. I had--the --back when I was a
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:54.190
  • student there at Oral Roberts University and I was going to
  • 00:17:54.200 --> 00:17:58.200
  • Brother--I was going to the meeting, they assigned me to go
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:01.270
  • to the invalid room. Now, they had thousands of people in
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:05.170
  • those--in those meetings. And Brother Roberts laid hands on
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:10.030
  • people out in the--out where the crowds were and so forth. But
  • 00:18:10.040 --> 00:18:17.010
  • there were people that were ambulatory. And some of them
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:20.100
  • just couldn't physically manage that thing out there. Now, they
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:26.020
  • took people out there that--there was a lot of really
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:28.280
  • sick people. They weren't hiding them. Anyway, they had me go in
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:35.080
  • there and listen to them. Message on the--on the PA system
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:41.060
  • inside there. And so I outlined point by point what he was--what
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:46.140
  • he had preached that night. Then, between the time--which
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:50.230
  • took him about five to seven minutes because, you know,
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:54.000
  • when--he had a little deal that was about as big around as this
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:56.190
  • table, and it had a little table inside it with a black curtain
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:59.090
  • around it. And he'd come off the platform, and the first thing he
  • 00:18:59.100 --> 00:19:03.210
  • would do out from under that anointing was pray for his
  • 00:19:03.220 --> 00:19:05.190
  • partners. And then he would go to the invalid room where these
  • 00:19:05.200 --> 00:19:10.160
  • people were. Well--and he's--I then was in that five, six,
  • 00:19:10.170 --> 00:19:16.180
  • seven minutes to remind the people of what he said; this
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:21.020
  • point, this point, this point, and this point. He walked in
  • 00:19:21.030 --> 00:19:24.090
  • there. I stepped out of the way, and he caught my coat and pulled
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:29.010
  • me over there to him. And now listen to what he said to me. He
  • 00:19:29.020 --> 00:19:32.010
  • said, "You're going to do the praying, and you're going to do
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:34.110
  • the laying on of hands." Well, whoa, man, I could feel it. I
  • 00:19:34.120 --> 00:19:38.040
  • never prayed for anybody in this kind of condition. He pulled me
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:42.080
  • over there, and listen to what he said. "Don't touch them till
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:46.120
  • you're ready to release your faith." "Ready to release my
  • 00:19:46.130 --> 00:19:52.210
  • faith." Flashed across my mind--in fact, the first woman
  • 00:19:52.220 --> 00:19:58.180
  • that we were to pray for was--she was in the last stages
  • 00:19:58.190 --> 00:20:04.270
  • of stomach cancer. But she was about, oh, I don't know, four or
  • 00:20:04.280 --> 00:20:09.260
  • five steps away from where we were standing at that time. In
  • 00:20:09.270 --> 00:20:14.010
  • those four or five steps, it crossed my mind, I was studying
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:17.190
  • the three areas where Jesus received the power in His name.
  • 00:20:17.200 --> 00:20:25.130
  • I was right in the middle of that studying. I was really--oh,
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:29.040
  • man, faith had come in me on the name of Jesus. And then I--I had
  • 00:20:29.050 --> 00:20:33.260
  • heard him talk about that point of contact, the point where you
  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:37.140
  • believe. Releasing your faith, that's the point where you start
  • 00:20:37.150 --> 00:20:42.040
  • believing. At this point, I believe. Now, I thought, "I'm
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:48.010
  • not going to touch them till I speak the name of Jesus." I
  • 00:20:48.020 --> 00:20:52.290
  • walked up to that first one, and her nurse had to hold her--and
  • 00:20:53.000 --> 00:20:57.100
  • her little tummy pooched out here. She looked like she
  • 00:20:57.110 --> 00:20:59.020
  • weighed about 75 pounds. But her little old tummy pooched out
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:03.060
  • here with that old tumor in there. Her nurse held her up
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:05.240
  • like this. We walked up there. He's standing right here. And I
  • 00:21:05.250 --> 00:21:10.160
  • said, "In the--" I'm about to touch her right there. And I
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:13.150
  • said, "In the name of Je--" and that's all I got out of my
  • 00:21:13.160 --> 00:21:16.170
  • mouth. I knew I released my faith. "How can you feel it?"
  • 00:21:16.180 --> 00:21:20.210
  • No, but I knew it because I said it. He--whoa. He was standing
  • 00:21:20.220 --> 00:21:26.150
  • right there behind me. And it was under such an anointing, you
  • 00:21:26.160 --> 00:21:30.170
  • can't--you can't imitate it. It can't be done unless it's under
  • 00:21:30.180 --> 00:21:33.060
  • that power anointing. He shouted, "You foul, unclean
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:39.150
  • spirit. In the name of Jesus, whose I am and whom I serve,
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:45.070
  • take your hands off God's property right now!" Every hair
  • 00:21:45.080 --> 00:21:51.190
  • on my body stood to attention. Phew. The air was charged with
  • 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:56.270
  • power. Ho, and it flashed across me the Lion of the tribe of
  • 00:21:56.280 --> 00:22:03.140
  • Judah. She, "Heh, hoo, pff." She blew that tumor out on the
  • 00:22:03.150 --> 00:22:12.000
  • ground. Oh, oh, oh. Amen. She jumped up and started running
  • 00:22:12.010 --> 00:22:20.220
  • around the room and shouting, "I'm! Healed. I'm healed! I'm
  • 00:22:20.230 --> 00:22:23.230
  • healed!" And the nurse running behind her thinking she was
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:25.280
  • going to die any minute. And--but, oh man, no, she was
  • 00:22:25.290 --> 00:22:28.280
  • totally, completely healed. But, see, that is an absolute miracle
  • 00:22:28.290 --> 00:22:32.050
  • of God. And I'm going to tell you something else while I'm at
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:34.020
  • it. That--we're back into that right now. These
  • 00:22:34.030 --> 00:22:36.100
  • are--these things are happening now. Amen. But I'm
  • 00:22:36.110 --> 00:22:40.060
  • talking about releasing your faith, that moment of
  • 00:22:40.070 --> 00:22:44.170
  • release. You can do it on the words. You can
  • 00:22:44.180 --> 00:22:48.100
  • do it on the Name, acting on the Word of truth.

  • JEREMY: Every Friday on the believers voice of victory.
  • 00:23:28.000 --> 00:23:30.260
  • Broadcast is offering day and I want to read this to you again
  • 00:23:30.270 --> 00:23:33.180
  • from the book of Galatians chapter six verse six. It says,
  • 00:23:33.190 --> 00:23:36.260
  • let him who has taught the word share in all good things with
  • 00:23:36.270 --> 00:23:39.260
  • him who teaches do not be deceived. God is not mocked for
  • 00:23:39.270 --> 00:23:42.240
  • whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Now the word of
  • 00:23:42.250 --> 00:23:47.080
  • the Lord came to brother Copeland years ago instructing
  • 00:23:47.090 --> 00:23:50.040
  • commanding him to preach the uncompromised word of faith from
  • 00:23:50.050 --> 00:23:54.060
  • the top of the world to the bottom and all the way around
  • 00:23:54.070 --> 00:23:57.180
  • the middle, on every available voice and of course television
  • 00:23:57.190 --> 00:24:00.290
  • has been a major part of that outreach. In this year, we are
  • 00:24:01.000 --> 00:24:04.080
  • celebrating 30 years of the believers voice of victory daily
  • 00:24:04.090 --> 00:24:09.040
  • broadcast. That is the grace of God and partners. You have
  • 00:24:09.050 --> 00:24:13.270
  • played such a big part in that because of your financial
  • 00:24:13.280 --> 00:24:17.020
  • support, because of your faith, the word of God has literally
  • 00:24:17.030 --> 00:24:20.160
  • gone all over the world and ministered into the lives of
  • 00:24:20.170 --> 00:24:24.260
  • millions of people. That's the power of partnership and what
  • 00:24:24.270 --> 00:24:28.240
  • partnership is, is every time you hear the word of God, just
  • 00:24:28.250 --> 00:24:32.090
  • like you've heard it today, just like you've heard it all this
  • 00:24:32.100 --> 00:24:35.140
  • week and many of you would like, you've been hearing it for 30
  • 00:24:35.150 --> 00:24:37.270
  • years now. Then when you hear it, you go before the Lord and
  • 00:24:37.280 --> 00:24:41.070
  • say, how do I respond to that? How do I share in all good
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:44.060
  • things with him? Who Teaches? How do I sow spiritually, this
  • 00:24:44.070 --> 00:24:48.080
  • is what the scripture is talking to us about. You just open you
  • 00:24:48.090 --> 00:24:50.220
  • ears and listen to the Lord and wherever he's got an assignment
  • 00:24:50.230 --> 00:24:53.090
  • for you to so you've so there. Now listen to me. If it's not
  • 00:24:53.100 --> 00:24:57.010
  • here, you find out where it is because everybody is called to
  • 00:24:57.020 --> 00:25:01.170
  • be a part of the preaching of the Gospel. Everybody is, has
  • 00:25:01.180 --> 00:25:05.260
  • got a kingdom assignment on their lives, on their finances,
  • 00:25:05.270 --> 00:25:09.270
  • and it's for you and for me to find out where that is. Now,
  • 00:25:09.280 --> 00:25:12.160
  • partners, those of you who are already partners with this
  • 00:25:12.170 --> 00:25:14.290
  • ministry already accepted this assignment. Then you know as
  • 00:25:15.000 --> 00:25:18.160
  • well as I do that every time you sow a seed into this ministry,
  • 00:25:18.170 --> 00:25:22.010
  • you sow into the Kingdom of God. It opens up a door of access for
  • 00:25:22.020 --> 00:25:25.140
  • God to go to work in your life, your family, your business, or
  • 00:25:25.150 --> 00:25:29.090
  • your own ministry, and that's what we're praying for today.
  • 00:25:29.100 --> 00:25:32.040
  • Father, in Jesus' name, we receive the giving of the
  • 00:25:32.050 --> 00:25:35.000
  • people. We call them blessed. We call their offering blessed and
  • 00:25:35.010 --> 00:25:38.130
  • Jesus, we bring them before you and say, do all that is in your
  • 00:25:38.140 --> 00:25:41.200
  • heart with it. Use this to affect millions of people from
  • 00:25:41.210 --> 00:25:46.040
  • the top of the world to the bottom and all the way around
  • 00:25:46.050 --> 00:25:48.160
  • the middle. We give you praise for every good thing you're
  • 00:25:48.170 --> 00:25:51.100
  • doing in our lives and in the lives of these partners. In
  • 00:25:51.110 --> 00:25:53.090
  • Jesus' name. Amen. Now listen, next week, brother Copeland's
