  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:34.250
  • But now recognizing somebody else is fine comes with rules.
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:37.000
  • I don't know why so many people,
  • 00:00:40.220 --> 00:00:43.050
  • pastors in particular,
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:44.230
  • that's breaking these rules.
  • 00:00:44.230 --> 00:00:46.150
  • That's what literally diluting the impact
  • 00:00:46.150 --> 00:00:49.130
  • and the potency and the authority of this place.
  • 00:00:49.130 --> 00:00:53.190
  • They don't wanna come here
  • 00:00:53.190 --> 00:00:54.240
  • 'cause y'all ain't living right.
  • 00:00:54.240 --> 00:00:57.010
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:00:57.030
  • You can sit there and watch hours of profanity
  • 00:01:00.100 --> 00:01:03.020
  • and hours of nudity.
  • 00:01:03.020 --> 00:01:04.220
  • What you need to do go back to asking yourself
  • 00:01:06.290 --> 00:01:10.270
  • if Jesus was really sitting right here with me,
  • 00:01:12.070 --> 00:01:16.140
  • and he is.
  • 00:01:16.140 --> 00:01:17.090
  • You know what happens in Vegas
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:22.020
  • goes right before the throne of God.
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:24.100
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:01:24.100 --> 00:01:26.270
  • Turn to your neighbor say don't believe that lie.
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:28.270
  • It stays in Vegas don't believe that.
  • 00:01:28.270 --> 00:01:31.190
  • Say that thing goes right before the throne of God.
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:35.240
  • Every time I watch the news it
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:44.090
  • compels me to come in here and cry loud and spare not.
  • 00:01:44.090 --> 00:01:48.140
  • Some spirit has entered into the world.
  • 00:01:54.250 --> 00:01:58.270
  • Well, it's been here thank you, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:02:01.250
  • It's manifesting like never before.
  • 00:02:01.250 --> 00:02:04.230
  • I'm just bringing to your attention
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:09.100
  • something that has transpired and is actively alive
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:13.150
  • to the place of manifestation.
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:19.180
  • The body of Christ we gotta be on guard.
  • 00:02:22.090 --> 00:02:25.190
  • Firstly, at our own home.
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:28.260
  • Shout I must guard my heart. - I must guard my heart.
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:34.210
  • - To guard my home. - To guard my home.
  • 00:02:34.210 --> 00:02:37.040
  • - Stay on guard. - Stay on gaud.
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:39.220
  • - The more you get away from hearing stuff as such
  • 00:02:43.220 --> 00:02:47.270
  • the more you won't have faith for staying on top of it.
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:53.030
  • I haven't of late heard many messages about
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:02.190
  • the coming of the Lord and getting your house in order
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:09.260
  • and setting up guidelines for you life
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:13.040
  • and watching over your soul and staying
  • 00:03:14.090 --> 00:03:17.190
  • sharp keeping your lamps trimmed and burning on fire.
  • 00:03:19.010 --> 00:03:23.020
  • Make sure that little wheel is still turning
  • 00:03:24.130 --> 00:03:28.120
  • that little fire is still burning you know what I'm saying.
  • 00:03:28.120 --> 00:03:32.170
  • Men are becoming lackadaisical in watching
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:36.040
  • over the affairs of their souls.
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:40.030
  • Even in the body of Christ
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:44.060
  • there's an apostasy the scripture talks about
  • 00:03:44.060 --> 00:03:47.180
  • that's going on, a great falling away
  • 00:03:47.180 --> 00:03:50.210
  • even relative or germane to church or ministry attendance.
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:56.080
  • I mean not here but I'm talking about
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:04:00.110
  • in the body of Christ worldwide.
  • 00:04:00.110 --> 00:04:03.230
  • What I discovered is that the church missed
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:07.130
  • a wonderful opportunity in post 9/11.
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:13.100
  • Because there seems to be
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:19.000
  • a position of heart or proclivity
  • 00:04:20.120 --> 00:04:24.000
  • that people draw closer to God
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:26.170
  • and the things of God during disasters.
  • 00:04:28.220 --> 00:04:32.000
  • You're going to see a great influx.
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:37.250
  • There's a great influx.
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:42.230
  • People are gonna start coming to this place by the droves.
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:46.280
  • Number one, they're going to be looking for true men of God.
  • 00:04:48.100 --> 00:04:52.130
  • Because there's so many episodes
  • 00:04:54.230 --> 00:04:57.150
  • that will almost make you sick to your spiritual stomach
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:04.060
  • about some of the activities that's going on in leadership
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:08.110
  • relative to the church scene.
  • 00:05:09.180 --> 00:05:12.010
  • That's why my life has been totally sold out.
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:20.100
  • I'm even referring to the physical component of that.
  • 00:05:20.100 --> 00:05:24.250
  • You watch what I tell you.
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:27.000
  • There's gone be a total demonstration
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:31.030
  • of spirit, soul, and body.
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:33.080
  • It does matter how you treat your temple.
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:42.040
  • That didn't go over so well.
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:44.110
  • Push that person in front of you say he talking to you.
  • 00:05:44.110 --> 00:05:47.130
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:05:47.130 --> 00:05:51.080
  • Now turn around say he talking to you too.
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:55.090
  • You better keep your hand.
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:56.290
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:06:00.250
  • Watch your body keeping everything about you
  • 00:06:00.250 --> 00:06:04.070
  • spirit, soul, and body intact being watchful.
  • 00:06:04.070 --> 00:06:07.290
  • Satan.
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:15.160
  • I see that.
  • 00:06:15.160 --> 00:06:17.020
  • Get First Peter since you hitting buttons upstairs.
  • 00:06:17.020 --> 00:06:21.270
  • Get Peter fourth chapter.
  • 00:06:21.270 --> 00:06:23.290
  • I believe it's the fourth chapter.
  • 00:06:26.140 --> 00:06:28.200
  • Look around about the 18th verse.
  • 00:06:28.200 --> 00:06:31.120
  • Define where Peter admonishes us to be sober.
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:36.130
  • (congregation muttering)
  • 00:06:38.170 --> 00:06:40.140
  • It's 5:8 how did I get four?
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:42.240
  • Who said 5:8?
  • 00:06:43.220 --> 00:06:44.240
  • Okay.
  • 00:06:46.030 --> 00:06:47.140
  • How you know so much?
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:49.040
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:06:49.040 --> 00:06:50.190
  • You heard it this morning.
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:52.210
  • Okay, then don't act like you so smart.
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:54.290
  • (congregation laughing) I got that.
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:59.040
  • People a trip, man, see.
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:04.260
  • I'm not playing with you all.
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:15.070
  • Hell is being enlarged every single day.
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:19.180
  • Everybody you think going to Heaven.
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:25.190
  • Some of these grace messages
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:30.270
  • have messed some of y'all up.
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:32.260
  • 'Cause you are just looking for permission to do some filth.
  • 00:07:32.260 --> 00:07:37.250
  • It was better for you not to know about this liberty
  • 00:07:37.250 --> 00:07:42.120
  • 'cause at least you attempted to live right
  • 00:07:42.120 --> 00:07:45.030
  • to circumvent going to Hell.
  • 00:07:45.030 --> 00:07:47.200
  • Now you know you ain't going to Hell.
  • 00:07:47.200 --> 00:07:51.020
  • Now the reason why you have to live right
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:54.170
  • is because you love God.
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:57.230
  • We had reasons in the past
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.100
  • 'cause we didn't wanna go to Hell.
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:04.030
  • I'm not the only one up here.
  • 00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:06.160
  • Man, I don't wanna go to Hell.
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:09.090
  • Man, all I heard preacher say that fire and brimstone.
  • 00:08:09.090 --> 00:08:12.110
  • I heard you gone go to Hell if God come back,
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:15.230
  • and he catch you in that sin you going to Hell.
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:19.200
  • He coming back for a church without a spot or wrinkle.
  • 00:08:23.210 --> 00:08:27.210
  • Get your hearts, house in order.
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:29.280
  • All that scared me to no end
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:32.270
  • like I'm gone live right.
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:35.160
  • You know why 'cause I don't know wanna go to Hell.
  • 00:08:35.160 --> 00:08:37.240
  • It had nothing to do with loving God.
  • 00:08:37.240 --> 00:08:40.030
  • Now we know all of that.
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:42.030
  • That this free gift Jesus has covered us.
  • 00:08:43.220 --> 00:08:47.050
  • Y'all missed a good time to shout.
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:51.140
  • Now the only reason why
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:53.140
  • you wanna live right is because I love God.
  • 00:08:55.180 --> 00:08:59.200
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:01.270
  • That's the reasonable service.
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:04.130
  • That's the least I can do
  • 00:09:04.130 --> 00:09:06.180
  • is to love him through my lifestyle which is worship.
  • 00:09:08.010 --> 00:09:12.200
  • Come on let me just talk for a moment.
  • 00:09:12.200 --> 00:09:14.290
  • Don't rush me.
  • 00:09:14.290 --> 00:09:16.040
  • I'll be out here in a good enough time.
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:20.040
  • It's been a while since I been here.
  • 00:09:20.040 --> 00:09:21.210
  • Let me talk.
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:22.210
  • That scripture says sober up.
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:30.220
  • Be sober.
  • 00:09:32.150 --> 00:09:33.100
  • Be vigilante.
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:35.250
  • Because your adversary, your adversary...
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:40.230
  • Did you know you had one?
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.290
  • I asked you a question.
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:46.250
  • Did you know you had an adversary?
  • 00:09:46.250 --> 00:09:49.080
  • What's his name? - Satan.
  • 00:09:49.080 --> 00:09:51.130
  • - Satan, the devil.
  • 00:09:51.130 --> 00:09:53.000
  • He's an opposer.
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:55.280
  • Walks about like a what?
  • 00:09:59.190 --> 00:10:01.190
  • - Roaring lion. - He isn't
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:05.110
  • but he walks like one.
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:09.120
  • It's all bark and no bite.
  • 00:10:11.280 --> 00:10:14.030
  • What is he walking around as a roaring lion doing?
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:22.240
  • He's seeking
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:23.270
  • who he can destroy.
  • 00:10:26.140 --> 00:10:28.020
  • Now Dr. Dee Dee demonstrated something to you last week.
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:32.000
  • I saw the footage.
  • 00:10:32.000 --> 00:10:34.010
  • She threw something at somebody in a thought.
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:37.240
  • Now, what you gotta understand...
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:42.030
  • She said every thought that you hear is not yours.
  • 00:10:42.030 --> 00:10:46.080
  • Say that every thought. - Every thought.
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:53.010
  • - That I hear. - That I hear.
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:54.220
  • - Is not mine. - Is not mine.
  • 00:10:54.220 --> 00:10:57.020
  • - Every thought.
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:01.130
  • I got one this week that wasn't mine.
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:06.060
  • It was strange.
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:07.140
  • It was real strange.
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:11.020
  • This week not 10 years ago.
  • 00:11:12.010 --> 00:11:14.090
  • Not long time ago, Scott
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:17.070
  • I'm talking about this past week.
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:19.210
  • I frequent this Harley Davidson dealership
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:24.030
  • over there on 197 I thing that's what it's called.
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:28.080
  • Because I would go to therapy over there.
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:33.270
  • Camille, is Camille here?
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:35.060
  • Dr. Grezette one of you?
  • 00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:37.070
  • I would go to therapy over at the Laurel Regional,
  • 00:11:37.070 --> 00:11:41.120
  • so I could go by this Harley Davidson dealership.
  • 00:11:42.240 --> 00:11:45.160
  • One day I just told Dawn.
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:47.030
  • I said, "Dawn, take me in there.
  • 00:11:47.030 --> 00:11:49.140
  • "I'd like to go and look at a bike."
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:53.010
  • I went in there and looked at a bike.
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:54.230
  • This cat he met me at the door.
  • 00:11:54.230 --> 00:11:57.280
  • I shook his hand.
  • 00:11:57.280 --> 00:11:59.270
  • He should've known better from my swag.
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:03.050
  • He should have just kind of detected certain things
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:06.270
  • because I got this weight in my walk.
  • 00:12:06.270 --> 00:12:09.290
  • I ain't talking about the fat stuff.
  • 00:12:11.130 --> 00:12:12.280
  • I was just talking about. (congregation laughing)
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:14.260
  • I'm talking about this understanding.
