  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:02:15.281 --> 00:02:16.516
  • - So open your Bibles to?
  • 00:02:16.516 --> 00:02:19.452
  • (congregation muttering)
  • 00:02:19.452 --> 00:02:20.420
  • Mark chapter (laughing) 11.
  • 00:02:20.420 --> 00:02:22.355
  • Oh, absolutely, so,
  • 00:02:24.657 --> 00:02:27.193
  • you didn't think I'd goanywhere else, did you?
  • 00:02:27.193 --> 00:02:29.796
  • Thank you, Lord Jesus,thank you Lord Jesus.
  • 00:02:30.997 --> 00:02:35.535
  • Mark chapter 11, we'llread the words of Jesus,
  • 00:02:35.535 --> 00:02:38.638
  • and verse 22, "Jesusanswering, sayeth unto them,
  • 00:02:39.973 --> 00:02:44.844
  • 'Have faith in God.'"
  • 00:02:45.578 --> 00:02:49.549
  • The cross reference,
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:52.352
  • if you have a King Jamescross-reference it says
  • 00:02:52.352 --> 00:02:54.120
  • "Have the faith of God."
  • 00:02:54.120 --> 00:02:57.757
  • And I like to quotewhat Brother Hagin said,
  • 00:02:58.925 --> 00:03:01.961
  • when he was here on the earth,
  • 00:03:01.961 --> 00:03:04.097
  • "Have the God kind of faith."
  • 00:03:04.097 --> 00:03:06.966
  • (laughing) I reallydo like that.
  • 00:03:06.966 --> 00:03:09.002
  • "Have the God kind offaith," hallelujah.
  • 00:03:09.002 --> 00:03:12.805
  • And this is the wayGod's faith works.
  • 00:03:12.805 --> 00:03:17.810
  • This is the way it works.
  • 00:03:21.347 --> 00:03:22.582
  • We have his faith.
  • 00:03:25.618 --> 00:03:29.055
  • It is the gift of God,
  • 00:03:31.591 --> 00:03:33.159
  • not a works lest anyman should boast, amen?
  • 00:03:34.460 --> 00:03:37.297
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:03:37.297 --> 00:03:38.731
  • - So that faith, the same faith
  • 00:03:38.731 --> 00:03:41.901
  • with which God createdthe heavens and the earth,
  • 00:03:44.504 --> 00:03:47.774
  • mountain moving, planetcreating faith (laughing).
  • 00:03:49.208 --> 00:03:53.212
  • And every one of us,
  • 00:03:54.614 --> 00:03:56.215
  • according to the 12thchapter of Romans,
  • 00:03:56.215 --> 00:03:58.618
  • every born again child of God
  • 00:03:58.618 --> 00:04:02.188
  • starts off with exactly thesame measure of faith, amen?
  • 00:04:02.188 --> 00:04:07.193
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:04:08.561 --> 00:04:10.396
  • - Now, depending onwhat you do with it,
  • 00:04:10.396 --> 00:04:12.899
  • let me illustratethis like this.
  • 00:04:14.367 --> 00:04:16.102
  • It is so graphic,
  • 00:04:17.704 --> 00:04:18.971
  • and that the Biblecompares spiritual growth,
  • 00:04:22.809 --> 00:04:27.814
  • with the growth of achild, to an adult.
  • 00:04:31.584 --> 00:04:34.721
  • Desire the sinceremilk of the word,
  • 00:04:35.988 --> 00:04:39.492
  • that you may grow thereby,
  • 00:04:39.492 --> 00:04:41.894
  • but after you're 35 years old,
  • 00:04:41.894 --> 00:04:44.030
  • you need something otherthan milk, dear heart.
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:46.399
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:04:46.399 --> 00:04:48.134
  • (laughing) Amen.
  • 00:04:48.134 --> 00:04:49.068
  • So a little baby starts out,
  • 00:04:49.068 --> 00:04:53.606
  • you know, the samenumber of fingers,
  • 00:04:55.341 --> 00:04:57.143
  • everything, same muscles,bones, everything.
  • 00:04:57.143 --> 00:05:01.347
  • But then it grows, anddevelops and grows.
  • 00:05:03.816 --> 00:05:06.753
  • Now, it's not left up to God
  • 00:05:06.753 --> 00:05:10.289
  • how much we grow spiritually,
  • 00:05:10.289 --> 00:05:12.658
  • or the quality of thespiritual food that you eat.
  • 00:05:14.026 --> 00:05:18.698
  • Man does not liveby bread alone,
  • 00:05:20.166 --> 00:05:22.301
  • but by every word that proceedsout of the mouth of God,
  • 00:05:22.301 --> 00:05:24.937
  • Matthew 4:4, isn't that correct?
  • 00:05:24.937 --> 00:05:26.639
  • That's what Jesus said, amen.
  • 00:05:26.639 --> 00:05:29.709
  • So just exactlylike in the natural,
  • 00:05:29.709 --> 00:05:32.779
  • he provides foodfor your spirit,
  • 00:05:34.580 --> 00:05:38.151
  • food for your mind andfood for your body.
  • 00:05:38.151 --> 00:05:41.220
  • Now it's our choice.
  • 00:05:41.220 --> 00:05:43.389
  • I set before you life and death,
  • 00:05:43.389 --> 00:05:45.291
  • blessing andcursing, you choose.
  • 00:05:45.291 --> 00:05:47.427
  • (laughing) You'd thinkthat's a no brainer.
  • 00:05:48.594 --> 00:05:51.964
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:05:51.964 --> 00:05:53.199
  • Amen, but then theflesh rises up,
  • 00:05:53.199 --> 00:05:57.804
  • and it needs to beput back down, amen.
  • 00:05:58.971 --> 00:06:01.240
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:06:01.240 --> 00:06:02.475
  • So, and just becauseyou're in your 80s
  • 00:06:02.475 --> 00:06:04.610
  • doesn't excuse youfrom daily exercise.
  • 00:06:04.610 --> 00:06:07.613
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:06:07.613 --> 00:06:10.616
  • Amen.
  • 00:06:10.616 --> 00:06:11.451
  • And since I finallygot it straight,
  • 00:06:13.386 --> 00:06:15.188
  • now I can talkabout it (laughing).
  • 00:06:15.188 --> 00:06:17.457
  • I was disobedient inthat for a long time,
  • 00:06:17.457 --> 00:06:19.826
  • and I paid a price for it.
  • 00:06:19.826 --> 00:06:22.061
  • But thank God for hismercy and his grace
  • 00:06:22.061 --> 00:06:25.531
  • that endures forever.
  • 00:06:25.531 --> 00:06:27.266
  • And I'm in the bestphysical condition
  • 00:06:27.266 --> 00:06:28.868
  • I've been in in my life.
  • 00:06:28.868 --> 00:06:31.471
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:06:31.471 --> 00:06:32.538
  • So praise God for it.
  • 00:06:32.538 --> 00:06:34.073
  • Amen.
  • 00:06:35.174 --> 00:06:36.476
  • So the choice is ours.
  • 00:06:36.476 --> 00:06:38.077
  • Let's go to what Jesus said.
  • 00:06:40.613 --> 00:06:42.782
  • "Jesus answering, sayeth untothem, 'Have faith in God.'"
  • 00:06:46.719 --> 00:06:50.656
  • Now that's the answer.
  • 00:06:50.656 --> 00:06:51.991
  • "Well, what about my children?"
  • 00:06:53.459 --> 00:06:55.695
  • "Have faith in God."
  • 00:06:55.695 --> 00:06:56.963
  • "Oh Lord, whatabout the economy?"
  • 00:06:58.498 --> 00:07:00.433
  • "Well, have faith in God."
  • 00:07:00.433 --> 00:07:02.001
  • "Well, Brother Copeland,
  • 00:07:03.069 --> 00:07:04.270
  • I mean what would myfaith do to the economy
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:07.073
  • of the United States?"
  • 00:07:07.073 --> 00:07:08.674
  • Well, if you're obeying Godand praying, first of all,
  • 00:07:10.109 --> 00:07:14.814
  • for all men, kings, andall that are in authority,
  • 00:07:16.249 --> 00:07:18.251
  • you don't have to,
  • 00:07:18.251 --> 00:07:19.919
  • you're not required tolike somebody's politics,
  • 00:07:19.919 --> 00:07:23.456
  • but you are requiredto pray for him.
  • 00:07:23.456 --> 00:07:25.925
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:07:25.925 --> 00:07:27.193
  • And you don't have anybusiness hating a man,
  • 00:07:27.193 --> 00:07:29.495
  • just because you don'tlike anything about him.
  • 00:07:29.495 --> 00:07:34.500
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:07:35.535 --> 00:07:38.137
  • Amen?- Amen.
  • 00:07:38.137 --> 00:07:39.305
  • - So we need you to justget that fixed (laughing)
  • 00:07:40.773 --> 00:07:42.041
  • right off the bat,
  • 00:07:42.041 --> 00:07:44.143
  • 'cause faith doesn't workin an unforgiving heart,
  • 00:07:44.143 --> 00:07:46.946
  • or a judgmental heartor an unwilling heart.
  • 00:07:46.946 --> 00:07:50.082
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:07:50.082 --> 00:07:51.017
  • So, (coughing) excuse me.
  • 00:07:51.017 --> 00:07:53.386
  • Every born again child of God,
  • 00:07:57.924 --> 00:08:01.661
  • everyone that's accepted JesusChrist as Lord and Savior,
  • 00:08:01.661 --> 00:08:05.398
  • has this faith, borninto their inner man.
  • 00:08:05.398 --> 00:08:10.403
  • All of us start out withexactly the same measure.
  • 00:08:11.837 --> 00:08:15.841
  • And it is the same measure...
  • 00:08:15.841 --> 00:08:19.078
  • You remember whatthe apostle Peter
  • 00:08:20.546 --> 00:08:22.081
  • wrote his letter to those oflike precious faith with him?
  • 00:08:22.081 --> 00:08:25.851
  • "Oh, Brother Copeland, Iain't got as much faith
  • 00:08:27.587 --> 00:08:30.156
  • as the apostle Peter."
  • 00:08:30.156 --> 00:08:32.091
  • Well, if you say so.
  • 00:08:32.091 --> 00:08:33.392
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:08:33.392 --> 00:08:36.796
  • Legally you do.
  • 00:08:37.930 --> 00:08:39.065
  • But it's gonna work now,according to what you say,
  • 00:08:40.967 --> 00:08:44.270
  • according to what you think,
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:45.972
  • according to what word you take,
  • 00:08:45.972 --> 00:08:47.907
  • according to how you hearit, and measure the word,
  • 00:08:47.907 --> 00:08:50.109
  • according to how you act on it.
  • 00:08:50.109 --> 00:08:52.511
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:08:52.511 --> 00:08:54.680
  • Amen?- Amen.
  • 00:08:54.680 --> 00:08:55.915
  • - All right.
  • 00:08:55.915 --> 00:08:56.849
  • "Have faith in God."
  • 00:09:00.886 --> 00:09:03.155
  • Well, back to whatI was saying there,
  • 00:09:03.155 --> 00:09:05.358
  • your economy,
  • 00:09:06.892 --> 00:09:08.628
  • you can prosperright in the middle
  • 00:09:11.297 --> 00:09:14.600
  • of the worst times financially.
  • 00:09:14.600 --> 00:09:16.636
  • In fact, want me totell you something?
  • 00:09:17.837 --> 00:09:20.339
  • The big fortunes, I'm talkingabout big personal fortunes,
  • 00:09:21.774 --> 00:09:26.746
  • were not made whenthe economy was good.
  • 00:09:28.881 --> 00:09:32.852
  • "Well, Brother Copeland,I don't understand that."
  • 00:09:35.121 --> 00:09:37.256
  • It's because peoplelistened to God,
  • 00:09:37.256 --> 00:09:41.227
  • and made investments wheneverything was so bad,
  • 00:09:41.227 --> 00:09:45.231
  • and then when it gotgood, they sold 'em.
  • 00:09:45.231 --> 00:09:48.734
  • (congregationmuttering in agreement)
  • 00:09:48.734 --> 00:09:51.737
  • So it's the peoplelistening to God,
  • 00:09:51.737 --> 00:09:53.773
  • when they economy's bad.
  • 00:09:53.773 --> 00:09:55.908
  • What you don't wanna do isbuy when the economy is high,
  • 00:09:55.908 --> 00:10:00.880
  • and then sell itbecause it went bad.
  • 00:10:00.880 --> 00:10:03.482
  • Ah, ah, no, no,(laughing) no, no.
  • 00:10:03.482 --> 00:10:08.487
  • And if you'll listen tohim, and walk in faith,
  • 00:10:09.689 --> 00:10:11.791
  • and live by faithand listen to God,
  • 00:10:11.791 --> 00:10:14.427
  • what good doespoverty do for God?
