  • - [Voiceover] Okay, I was in Vegas, and I called home,
  • 00:00:30.220 --> 00:00:32.260
  • and I was talking to Mike, and he didn't sound good.
  • 00:00:32.260 --> 00:00:36.220
  • - [Voiceover] We found out that he
  • 00:00:36.220 --> 00:00:37.280
  • was being rushed to another hospital.
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:39.110
  • So things got a little bit more serious.
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:41.090
  • - [Voiceover] And he texted me, and he told me,
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:43.090
  • "Man, these people got me in the hospital."
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:45.030
  • I said, "What?"
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:46.110
  • - [Voiceover] I was actually at a funeral
  • 00:00:46.110 --> 00:00:47.230
  • when I got the call from his daughter.
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:50.210
  • - [Voiceover] I received a text from Brittney that evening
  • 00:00:50.210 --> 00:00:54.180
  • saying that her dad was not feeling well.
  • 00:00:54.180 --> 00:00:56.290
  • - [Voiceover] They were like,
  • 00:00:56.290 --> 00:00:58.030
  • "Okay, he's just not getting better.
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:00:59.120
  • "He's fighting the machine, it's not working."
  • 00:00:59.120 --> 00:01:02.000
  • - [Voiceover] I said, "Man, be healed.
  • 00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:03.100
  • "Tell them people to let you go."
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:04.290
  • So he said, "Laugh out loud,"
  • 00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:06.280
  • and he text me back, "Man, they tryin' to keep me here.
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:10.000
  • "They saying something about my lungs."
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:13.020
  • - [Voiceover] The new oncoming ICU attending
  • 00:01:13.120 --> 00:01:16.170
  • pulled me aside and said,
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:19.200
  • "You need to prepare your family for the worst."
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:23.020
  • There was a time
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:31.070
  • I truly believed
  • 00:01:31.070 --> 00:01:33.050
  • That I could do it on my own
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:36.200
  • - [Voiceover] You know, can you imagine, one day
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:38.270
  • you seeing him one way,
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:41.120
  • and then you come back and now
  • 00:01:41.210 --> 00:01:43.270
  • he's hooked up to all kind of stuff.
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:46.070
  • And so, right then, what do you do?
  • 00:01:46.180 --> 00:01:49.250
  • You just believe God.
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.110
  • - [Voiceover] Even when he was laid up in that hospital,
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:54.140
  • one breath away from death,
  • 00:01:54.140 --> 00:01:56.210
  • I was determined to see him whole.
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:59.000
  • I was determined to hear God speak to me and tell me
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.260
  • that He has promised me that Mike will walk outta that room.
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:05.120
  • Trust in
  • 00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:07.050
  • Earthly possessions
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:11.220
  • But in the end
  • 00:02:12.120 --> 00:02:15.070
  • It won't bring them through
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:19.040
  • - [Voiceover] I heard the scripture about the same spirit
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:23.080
  • that raised Jesus from the dead
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:25.170
  • can quicken your mortal body.
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:27.170
  • And so I said, when I saw him and put my hands on him,
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:32.120
  • I said, "The zoë life of God flows through your body."
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:36.220
  • Trust in the name of the Lord,
  • 00:02:36.220 --> 00:02:40.170
  • Trust in the name of the Lord
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:45.040
  • Lord, I will
  • 00:02:46.000 --> 00:02:49.060
  • Trust in you
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:52.160
  • Trust in the name of the Lord
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:57.210
  • - [Voiceover] I got so upset about being
  • 00:02:59.270 --> 00:03:02.170
  • in this stagnant situation, that my mind said,
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:07.010
  • "I'm not going
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:09.060
  • "to tolerate this any longer!"
  • 00:03:09.060 --> 00:03:12.280
  • Mighty strong tower
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:14.170
  • Righteous run in and
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:16.180
  • And they're saved
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:20.000
  • I will
  • 00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:22.180
  • Trust in you
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:27.060
  • - [Voiceover] We're not exempt
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:30.030
  • from the attacks of the enemy.
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:31.200
  • The devil is gonna attack really the head first.
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:34.170
  • If he can get to the head, surely he can get to the body.
  • 00:03:34.170 --> 00:03:37.190
  • And so, he attacked the head.
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:39.280
  • He attacked the one that was supposed
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:41.270
  • to be there to protect the flock.
  • 00:03:41.270 --> 00:03:43.290
  • Well, thank God that our church is built up
  • 00:03:43.290 --> 00:03:47.020
  • and they know the word of God
  • 00:03:47.020 --> 00:03:48.100
  • and we know how to stand and believe God with us.
  • 00:03:48.100 --> 00:03:50.200
  • And so we didn't have to hide anything from them.
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:53.110
  • All we had to do was take it to them
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:55.030
  • and allow them to be in agreement with us
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:58.070
  • and stand so their man of God can get back
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:04:00.280
  • into his set place.
  • 00:04:00.280 --> 00:04:02.120
  • - [Voiceover] It was the peace of the almighty God,
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:06.040
  • the grace of the almighty God.
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:08.120
  • And most of all, it was a sign of good leadership.
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:12.090
  • Because the people in the pews kept coming,
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.260
  • the people kept giving.
  • 00:04:14.260 --> 00:04:16.180
  • I mean we kept ministering the word of God.
  • 00:04:17.000 --> 00:04:19.050
  • He taught us to make sure people get fed when they come.
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:23.230
  • So I believe people were getting fed.
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:25.210
  • They were coming.
  • 00:04:25.210 --> 00:04:26.180
  • People were getting saved.
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:27.230
  • Dr. DeeDee would give instructions
  • 00:04:27.230 --> 00:04:29.150
  • and I'll just follow instructions.
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:31.040
  • So I wasn't doing anything different.
  • 00:04:31.040 --> 00:04:33.130
  • I was just playing my part.
  • 00:04:33.230 --> 00:04:35.120
  • Thank God that I played a part
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:38.230
  • into this whole big picture,
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:41.170
  • that causes the victory that we see today.
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:44.080
  • - [Voiceover] I admire my husband even more
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:46.180
  • going through this challenge and still being strong.
  • 00:04:46.180 --> 00:04:49.180
  • I told him, I said "Look dude, you are gangsta
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:52.070
  • "even in your weakness.
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:53.240
  • "You know, you're still strong even during this time.
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:56.210
  • "And you're ministering and witnessing to so many people."
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:59.280
  • I had the group from the rehab call me
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:03.070
  • one Sunday after service and say
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:06.120
  • "Ah we just watched streaming, we watched the whole service
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:09.210
  • "and we're so excited!"
  • 00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:11.080
  • I mean these people are in love with this man.
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:14.050
  • And so I admire my husband for being
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:16.250
  • a man of God that he is.
  • 00:05:16.250 --> 00:05:18.160
  • He is a strong man.
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:20.080
  • And he is a winner, and he has taught all of us
  • 00:05:20.080 --> 00:05:23.050
  • how to win in life.
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:24.270
  • - [Voiceover] You know, you'll always be my superman.
  • 00:05:25.090 --> 00:05:27.080
  • And now even more than ever.
  • 00:05:27.080 --> 00:05:30.000
  • I never told them it was okay to pull the plug.
  • 00:05:30.080 --> 00:05:33.100
  • You keep joking about that but I'm very serious.
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:36.160
  • There's not enough money in this world
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:39.030
  • that can replace you.
  • 00:05:39.030 --> 00:05:40.290
  • And for me to have somebody in my life
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:44.080
  • that can teach me how to serve and love God
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:47.120
  • and live life to the fullest and have all my needs met,
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:51.080
  • is nothing that can replace that.
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:54.020
  • - [Voiceover] Going through this experience with him,
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:59.060
  • where I was weak it's made me strong.
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:02.170
  • My faith is on 1.000.
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:07.210
  • I've seen a miracle,
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:10.030
  • right before my eyes.
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:13.240
  • Dr. DeeDee and the family, I wanna thank you so much
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:17.140
  • 'cause was it your prayers, your faith,
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:20.260
  • and your belief that kept my man of God alive.
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:25.010
  • - [Voiceover] I think that was a day that it really really
  • 00:06:28.120 --> 00:06:31.160
  • kinda settled you kinda down.
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:36.070
  • Just to see him walk through the doors.
  • 00:06:37.080 --> 00:06:41.270
  • Coming back to a place that I know
  • 00:06:43.200 --> 00:06:45.150
  • he always wanted to be back in.
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:47.270
  • I could it see it almost now, him coming through the door.
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:52.270
  • And he's walking around.
  • 00:06:53.230 --> 00:06:55.030
  • And I really had to turn my head,
  • 00:06:55.030 --> 00:06:58.000
  • 'cause for the first time I felt
  • 00:06:58.000 --> 00:07:00.230
  • the tears flowing then.
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:03.150
  • That was a very very touching moment for me.
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:09.130
  • And he walked back into a place that
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:12.140
  • he was created to be in.
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:14.100
  • (slow paced music)
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:19.290
  • Woo!
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:25.010
  • I will rejoice!
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:28.080
  • I will rejoice!
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:33.070
  • I will rejoice and be glad in it.
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:40.220
  • Before you take your seats again,
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:43.140
  • let me just ask that you grab your neighbor by the hand.
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:48.130
  • And if you would be so kind to reach across
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:52.210
  • the isle so that we can
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.210
  • have this connectivity.
  • 00:07:57.100 --> 00:07:59.070
  • Because I intend for everything
  • 00:08:00.170 --> 00:08:04.020
  • that is sick to be healed.
  • 00:08:04.200 --> 00:08:06.230
  • (congregation cheers)
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.290
  • Everything that is diseased to be cured.
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:14.180
  • Are you listening to what I'm saying to you?
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:20.270
  • Ladies and gentlemen we are in a faith fertile atmosphere.
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:26.150
  • And I just believe that anything is possible.
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:32.130
  • I believe that.
  • 00:08:32.220 --> 00:08:33.270
  • How many of you all know I believe
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:36.160
  • that anything is possible.
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:38.200
  • And so on tonight we're not tolerating sickness and disease,
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:43.140
  • pain, and trauma,
  • 00:08:44.260 --> 00:08:47.130
  • and situations that
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:50.140
  • have appeared to be
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:52.260
  • beyond our control.
  • 00:08:52.260 --> 00:08:54.290
  • Cancer is defeated.
  • 00:08:56.050 --> 00:08:58.010
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying to you?
  • 00:08:58.220 --> 00:09:00.210
  • Parkinson is defeated.
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.280
  • Diabetes is defeated.
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:04.290
  • Are you getting what I'm telling you?!
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:07.030
  • Confusion is removed.
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:11.230
  • Father because you have shown
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:18.190
  • yourself mightily in my life
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:22.040
  • we have assembled here,
  • 00:09:22.040 --> 00:09:24.150
  • firstly to give you praise.
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:27.080
  • You deserve all the glory and all the honor
  • 00:09:28.010 --> 00:09:31.040
  • and all the praise and majesty.
  • 00:09:31.040 --> 00:09:33.290
  • And we extol you today.
  • 00:09:33.290 --> 00:09:36.000
  • We exalt your holy name.
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:38.230
  • For your name is above every name.
  • 00:09:40.010 --> 00:09:42.180
  • And that the name of Jesus every knee shall bow
  • 00:09:43.000 --> 00:09:46.040
  • and every tongue shall confess.
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:48.230
  • There's no other name given unto man
  • 00:09:49.070 --> 00:09:51.180
  • whereby men will be saved.
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:54.000
  • Your name be exalted!
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:56.000
  • Your name be increased!
  • 00:09:56.000 --> 00:09:58.170
  • Your name be lifted up!
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:10:00.250
  • Your name is a strong tower!
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:04.060
  • (Pastor speaking foreign language)
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:07.000
  • Your name, your wonderful name.
  • 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:10.190
  • We thank you, that in your name,
  • 00:10:12.180 --> 00:10:16.060
  • everything that's not of you must be removed.
  • 00:10:17.100 --> 00:10:22.100
  • It must be dismissed.
  • 00:10:23.120 --> 00:10:25.080
  • We decree in the name of Jesus,
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:28.270
  • that this is a sick free environment.
  • 00:10:30.060 --> 00:10:35.000
  • It's a fear free environment.
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:39.190
  • Come on somebody.
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:41.190
  • Woo, it's a disease free environment!
  • 00:10:42.130 --> 00:10:47.100
  • And the people of God shall rise.
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:53.040
  • Hey, glory to God!
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:55.220
  • We shall rise, we shall rise this evening
  • 00:10:57.020 --> 00:11:01.250
  • and for the rest of our lives.
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:05.060
  • Be made whole from the top of your head
  • 00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:08.240
  • to the very tip of your toes.
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:12.190
  • We decree in Jesus name
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:18.030
  • that we will leave this place the better.
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:21.240
  • Walking in divine health,
  • 00:11:22.210 --> 00:11:24.250
  • in every area of our lives.
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:29.050
  • In Jesus precious and sweet
  • 00:11:30.100 --> 00:11:34.270
  • and adorable and wonderful name.
  • 00:11:34.270 --> 00:11:38.160
  • Thank you Father.
  • 00:11:39.260 --> 00:11:41.080
  • Thank you Lord.
  • 00:11:43.290 --> 00:11:45.080
  • Thank you Jesus.
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.100
  • Thank you Jesus.
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:55.070
  • Awe bless you Jesus.
  • 00:11:55.070 --> 00:11:55.200
  • Yeah.
  • 00:11:57.120 --> 00:11:58.100
  • I need.
  • 00:11:59.120 --> 00:12:00.190
  • I need new triggers.
  • 00:12:02.230 --> 00:12:04.270
  • Dr. DeeDee, she blessed my life
  • 00:12:04.270 --> 00:12:07.230
  • and I thank God for her.
  • 00:12:07.230 --> 00:12:10.280
  • Continuing her endeavor to become
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:15.150
  • all of what God has called her to be.
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:19.010
  • I was telling her that
  • 00:12:20.130 --> 00:12:22.150
  • as this year approached
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:26.000
  • that I've been having
  • 00:12:26.000 --> 00:12:28.170
  • situations where
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:32.060
  • I've almost felt traumatized all over.
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:37.250
  • Like coming up to this year, this anniversary.
  • 00:12:38.090 --> 00:12:42.160
  • It's like I was not
  • 00:12:43.050 --> 00:12:47.190
  • totally able to explain to you.
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:50.110
  • But of course her line of studies
  • 00:12:51.030 --> 00:12:55.030
  • and what's she's understood.
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:58.030
  • And she literally said that they are called triggers.
  • 00:12:58.220 --> 00:13:03.060
  • There's a psychological thing that goes on
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:08.270
  • in traumatic events annually.
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:13.040
  • And the enemy is behind it all.
  • 00:13:14.170 --> 00:13:16.190
  • To try to snatch you back in a place
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:21.210
  • of not experiencing God's best.
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:27.180
  • And she said, "Now here's how you overcome this."
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:32.270
  • And she took me through the psychological thing
  • 00:13:33.040 --> 00:13:35.040
  • and what psychologist recommend,
  • 00:13:35.040 --> 00:13:39.170
  • but at the same time she gave me the word of God.
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:43.150
  • How many of you all grateful you got a good wife
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:46.250
  • or woman of God in your life that can minister to you?
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:51.060
  • And she said "You replace now
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:56.080
  • "these triggers with new triggers."
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:58.180
  • She said "You have to begin to focus
  • 00:13:58.200 --> 00:14:01.230
  • "on the victory of this thing."
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:03.260
  • Now that's something I know as a minister of the Gospel,
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:07.200
  • but how many of y'all know that the minister
  • 00:14:07.200 --> 00:14:10.080
  • needs to be minsitered too?
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.210
  • (congregation applauds)
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:16.110
  • And she said "This day is gonna help you
  • 00:14:18.110 --> 00:14:21.130
  • "just flip everything else around."
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:23.130
  • But I don't want this day to just be my day.
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:26.020
  • Turn to your neighbor and say this your day, this your day.
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:29.070
  • - [Congregation] This is your day.
  • 00:14:29.070 --> 00:14:30.280
  • This is your day.
  • 00:14:33.230 --> 00:14:35.060
  • And so all throughout this day, this is victory Sunday.
  • 00:14:36.160 --> 00:14:39.130
  • Because it's amazing how bad he was doing
  • 00:14:46.140 --> 00:14:50.250
  • but how strong he was in it all.
  • 00:14:50.250 --> 00:14:53.120
  • It tripped me out because I learned a lot even in that.
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:55.190
  • Because it was like
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:57.110
  • you couldn't be denied.
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:15:01.030
  • Like you just had to be strong in everything.
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:03.030
  • Like you ended up letting me take care of you
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:05.150
  • and doing all of that kind of stuff.
  • 00:15:05.150 --> 00:15:07.100
  • But you stood as much as you could even.
  • 00:15:07.100 --> 00:15:12.040
  • Even at your weakest moment.
  • 00:15:15.280 --> 00:15:18.120
  • And you asked me in the hospital in rehab,
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:22.150
  • and he was like "Are you ashamed?"
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:25.010
  • And I said "What?"
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:26.210
  • And you said "Well 'cause I'm so weak.
  • 00:15:26.210 --> 00:15:29.050
  • "I can't move," and you're asking me am I ashamed.
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:32.120
  • And I've never been more proud of you.
  • 00:15:33.060 --> 00:15:35.290
  • (congregation applauds)
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:39.120
  • My experience, man, was just totally different.
  • 00:15:44.290 --> 00:15:47.220
  • My mom.
  • 00:15:51.240 --> 00:15:52.290
  • My mom actually called me first,
  • 00:15:57.120 --> 00:15:59.280
  • and she told me, you know,
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:04.240
  • "Your father don't sound good,
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:06.050
  • "you should go check on him," and all that.
  • 00:16:06.050 --> 00:16:09.240
  • And you know, I'm not even,
  • 00:16:10.040 --> 00:16:14.160
  • I wasn't even concerned with it,
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:16.130
  • because I'm thinkin', you know, it's my dad.
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:19.160
  • You know, I know how you talk, I know how you roll.
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:22.240
  • It's the same way I roll.
  • 00:16:22.240 --> 00:16:24.080
  • I ain't just takin' no for an answer.
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:28.010
  • I ain't just goin' believe.
  • 00:16:28.010 --> 00:16:29.290
  • I'm not going to feel something in my body
  • 00:16:29.290 --> 00:16:32.120
  • and believe I'm sick, I'mma still believe, you know,
  • 00:16:32.120 --> 00:16:35.130
  • somethin', you know, more powerful.
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:37.190
  • It may not even make sense to y'all,
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:40.050
  • but it's like an invincible type of feelin'.
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:43.220
  • That's how I felt with him.
  • 00:16:43.220 --> 00:16:45.130
  • I'm not thinkin' anything would go wrong,
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:47.200
  • and my mom, she...
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:49.270
  • She tellin' me something is really, really wrong,
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:56.240
  • and I'm still sittin' there,
  • 00:16:56.240 --> 00:16:58.230
  • but I still felt like he was goin' be okay
  • 00:16:59.120 --> 00:17:02.160
  • no matter what,
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:03.260
  • up until they say he was
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:07.240
  • in a coma or whatever, the thing is.
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:13.260
  • And I'm feelin' like,
  • 00:17:15.080 --> 00:17:16.200
  • I'm feelin' like it's gonna be my fault that he die,
  • 00:17:18.150 --> 00:17:21.160
  • and it's always a problem with me.
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:24.130
  • And I wasn't even strong enough
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:26.050
  • to go in the room and to see him.
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:29.030
  • And it wasn't 'cause I didn't love him,
  • 00:17:32.060 --> 00:17:34.030
  • it's just 'cause I loved him so much
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:35.290
  • it hurt to see him like this.
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:38.030
  • And it really hurt.
  • 00:17:40.190 --> 00:17:44.120
  • It really, it hurt, but in the long run,
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:49.290
  • after your situation,
  • 00:17:51.270 --> 00:17:53.250
  • devil hit us with another situation with my son.
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:57.180
  • I had to be the one, like my ma.
  • 00:18:01.060 --> 00:18:05.010
  • I didn't have any faith,
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:07.290
  • I'm gonna keep it real with y'all.
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:09.240
  • I didn't have any faith, I thought you was gonna die.
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:12.000
  • I thought my dad was gonna die.
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:14.000
  • My father, and I thought I was gonna be the one.
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:16.290
  • And most of the time my mom is the one
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:24.250
  • who tell me, "It's gonna be okay,"
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:26.140
  • or this or that, or in control, or my dad,
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:29.240
  • but neither one of 'em could,
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.030
  • because she's focused on this.
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:33.120
  • He's goin' through whatever he goin' through.
  • 00:18:33.220 --> 00:18:35.200
  • Of course, there's other people to talk to,
  • 00:18:35.200 --> 00:18:37.110
  • but I don't open up like that,
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:39.090
  • I don't talk to everybody like that.
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:40.210
  • I'm surprised I'm doing this now.
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:42.230
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:18:42.230 --> 00:18:44.050
  • I'mma keep it real.
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:45.140
  • But what's so wild to me about the situation,
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:55.260
  • me not being able to go into the room,
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:58.100
  • and not be able to handle it,
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:18:59.290
  • 'cause I didn't wanna be the weak,
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:01.010
  • the weak chain, the weak link in the chain,
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:02.280
  • and then flippin' around and he okay,
  • 00:19:03.210 --> 00:19:06.140
  • and then the baby, goin' through whatever problems,
  • 00:19:06.140 --> 00:19:10.220
  • I had to be the rock.
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:12.270
  • And it's no way,
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:14.220
  • it's no way I would've been the rock
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:17.100
  • without this situation.
  • 00:19:17.180 --> 00:19:19.170
  • Without this situation, man,
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:25.190
  • it's no way I woulda had faith
  • 00:19:26.080 --> 00:19:28.220
  • to believe for my son.
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:31.130
  • (congregation applauds)
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:35.280
  • It's no way, man, but I thank you
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:45.120
  • for being so tough.
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:47.120
  • 'Cause who knows how I woulda been if you woulda died
  • 00:19:47.190 --> 00:19:50.070
  • and then this, like who knows?
  • 00:19:50.070 --> 00:19:53.040
  • So, thank you for being tough.
  • 00:19:53.170 --> 00:19:56.210
  • I don't even know if we thankin' him,
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:58.040
  • I don't know what's goin' on right now.
  • 00:19:58.040 --> 00:20:00.040
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:02.050
  • It was just...
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:03.120
  • For real, man, y'all play too much, man.
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:07.140
  • I'm for real, I just, I don't know who I'm sayin' it for,
  • 00:20:08.220 --> 00:20:12.220
  • or if I'm sayin' it for anybody.
  • 00:20:12.220 --> 00:20:14.260
  • But honestly, I just, I didn't have any faith,
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:19.160
  • so guys, the people who sometimes
  • 00:20:19.160 --> 00:20:22.110
  • go through situations and don't have faith,
  • 00:20:22.110 --> 00:20:24.120
  • don't feel like it's the end of the road
  • 00:20:24.120 --> 00:20:27.240
  • because you don't see how everybody else see.
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:30.110
  • You just gotta agree.
  • 00:20:30.110 --> 00:20:32.160
  • If you don't know, you just gotta agree.
  • 00:20:32.270 --> 00:20:35.030
  • (congregation applauds)
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:37.000
  • But, what I love the most,
  • 00:20:42.150 --> 00:20:44.100
  • I guess this is more for our family.
  • 00:20:44.100 --> 00:20:46.210
  • What I love the most were,
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:48.170
  • we were so strong.
  • 00:20:48.170 --> 00:20:50.150
  • And I'm not gonna look that way.
  • 00:20:50.270 --> 00:20:52.120
  • And Brittney said, "Even in his weakness, he was strong."
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:56.200
  • And it's like, if he were strong,
  • 00:20:56.200 --> 00:21:00.160
  • as his family being strong, what an example
  • 00:21:00.160 --> 00:21:04.070
  • he set for us, way before the situation,
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:08.260
  • and a lot of people get in these situations
  • 00:21:08.260 --> 00:21:11.080
  • and don't prepare way before.
  • 00:21:11.080 --> 00:21:13.240
  • And we were prepared to fight for you.
  • 00:21:13.240 --> 00:21:16.040
  • - [DeeDee] Lord, y'all gotta stop all that cryin'.
  • 00:21:21.080 --> 00:21:23.280
  • - I just don't know, y'all don't know.
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:27.280
  • We had to come here and smile and say,
  • 00:21:30.030 --> 00:21:33.210
  • "Hey," and "How you doin'?"
  • 00:21:33.210 --> 00:21:35.140
  • and "Everything is well," and everything was well,
  • 00:21:35.140 --> 00:21:38.160
  • but we had to be strong.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:40.220
  • And we do that all the time,
  • 00:21:41.010 --> 00:21:43.160
  • and it's like people look at us like,
  • 00:21:43.160 --> 00:21:45.100
  • "Oh, they're so grateful."
  • 00:21:45.100 --> 00:21:46.140
  • We go through things as well,
  • 00:21:46.140 --> 00:21:48.210
  • and mommy,
  • 00:21:48.210 --> 00:21:49.180
  • I just love you, man.
  • 00:21:50.020 --> 00:21:52.010
  • Even mommy, I remember one day.
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:57.080
  • It just felt so like an outta body experience sometimes.
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:00.270
  • Like people would bring food to the hospital,
  • 00:22:00.270 --> 00:22:03.040
  • and it would almost be like, "Wait, this for us?
  • 00:22:03.040 --> 00:22:05.220
  • "Oh, that's my father?"
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:07.090
  • Then you had to get right back into it.
  • 00:22:08.080 --> 00:22:10.030
  • But one day, I really,
  • 00:22:10.030 --> 00:22:12.000
  • it really hit me like, "Oh, that's my father.
  • 00:22:12.000 --> 00:22:16.040
  • "He in ICU, they sayin' all this, they (blabbers)."
  • 00:22:16.040 --> 00:22:19.190
  • And people were sayin' different stuff,
  • 00:22:19.190 --> 00:22:21.070
  • "He dead, he in a coma."
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:22.240
  • It was just a lot.
  • 00:22:23.080 --> 00:22:24.110
  • And mommy's, "Okay, come with me."
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:27.170
  • And we went to the chapel in the hospital
  • 00:22:27.170 --> 00:22:30.290
  • and we just begin to pray and worship God,
  • 00:22:31.080 --> 00:22:34.010
  • maybe for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 00:22:34.010 --> 00:22:36.130
  • And it just change your whole atmosphere
  • 00:22:36.130 --> 00:22:38.260
  • of my day all over again.
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:40.260
  • And, it's just, you gotta understand that
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:43.170
  • that's where you release everything,
  • 00:22:43.170 --> 00:22:46.070
  • in prayer and praise and worship.
  • 00:22:46.070 --> 00:22:48.040
  • And we were just, I can't, I'm tired,
  • 00:22:48.150 --> 00:22:51.030
  • I don't wanna cry no more and look at you,
  • 00:22:51.030 --> 00:22:53.010
  • but when he said, he woke up and he asked mommy,
  • 00:22:53.010 --> 00:22:58.000
  • "Did Brelyn get married?"
  • 00:22:58.000 --> 00:22:59.220
  • I was like, "I would never do that!"
  • 00:22:59.220 --> 00:23:03.100
  • You are so important to all of us, to me.
  • 00:23:07.180 --> 00:23:10.240
  • You are so strong and we love you.
  • 00:23:10.240 --> 00:23:13.210
  • And like Brittney said, we got you, man.
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:16.060
  • We proved that but,
  • 00:23:16.200 --> 00:23:18.110
  • from even this day forward and on and on,
  • 00:23:18.190 --> 00:23:20.250
  • the best days are ahead of you and all of us
  • 00:23:20.250 --> 00:23:24.110
  • as a family and ministry.
  • 00:23:24.110 --> 00:23:26.070
  • We are gonna fight for you and keep on pushing.
  • 00:23:26.070 --> 00:23:29.260
  • And we love you, I'm done.
  • 00:23:30.070 --> 00:23:31.270
  • - [Voiceover] Mike Freeman.
  • 00:23:39.080 --> 00:23:41.230
  • (piano solo)
  • 00:23:43.110 --> 00:23:46.170
  • (indistinct speaking)
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:49.200
  • That the Kingdom of Heaven suffering violence,
  • 00:23:52.010 --> 00:23:54.270
  • and you are one of the valiant
  • 00:23:54.270 --> 00:23:57.020
  • that decided to take it by force.
  • 00:23:57.020 --> 00:23:59.150
  • You'll be preaching by faith,
  • 00:23:59.150 --> 00:24:01.160
  • living by faith, fighting by faith,
  • 00:24:01.160 --> 00:24:03.190
  • and now you've demonstrated to us
  • 00:24:03.190 --> 00:24:05.240
  • how to survive by faith.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:07.260
  • That hospital might have had you
  • 00:24:07.260 --> 00:24:09.090
  • but it didn't have your faith.
  • 00:24:09.090 --> 00:24:11.000
  • Your strength might decline but your faith never declined.
  • 00:24:11.000 --> 00:24:14.080
  • You may have lost a little weight,
  • 00:24:14.080 --> 00:24:15.270
  • but you never lost any faith.
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:17.230
  • And the enemy thought he had you because
  • 00:24:17.230 --> 00:24:19.180
  • you were unconscious for five weeks.
  • 00:24:19.180 --> 00:24:21.190
  • But he didn't have a clue that you would pray
  • 00:24:21.190 --> 00:24:23.180
  • at your most holy faith and rise back to your feet.
  • 00:24:23.180 --> 00:24:26.290
  • The spirit of faith alone with believers around the world
  • 00:24:26.290 --> 00:24:29.250
  • went from making a prayer request to a praise report.
  • 00:24:29.250 --> 00:24:32.210
  • And now that you're back and rolling,
  • 00:24:32.210 --> 00:24:34.200
  • so you and Dr. DeeDee can declare
  • 00:24:34.200 --> 00:24:37.050
  • your war against the voice.
  • 00:24:37.050 --> 00:24:39.170
  • (steady beeping)
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:44.050
  • Pastor your faith had to be tested
  • 00:24:44.050 --> 00:24:45.280
  • so your faith could be approved.
  • 00:24:45.280 --> 00:24:47.240
  • Now you can stand flat footed and show the enemy
  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:50.120
  • how you refused to lose.
  • 00:24:50.120 --> 00:24:52.090
  • You fought a new devil so it's time for the next level.
  • 00:24:52.090 --> 00:24:55.170
  • Get ready for the next dimension because
  • 00:24:55.170 --> 00:24:57.180
  • you're about to have the worlds attention.
  • 00:24:57.180 --> 00:24:59.260
  • Your ministry is about to move.
  • 00:24:59.260 --> 00:25:01.220
  • And your voice is about to rise
  • 00:25:01.220 --> 00:25:03.120
  • because you had a greater appetite for life
  • 00:25:03.120 --> 00:25:05.290
  • and an even stronger will to survive.
  • 00:25:05.290 --> 00:25:08.090
  • You pushed us, provoked us, and pressed us
  • 00:25:08.090 --> 00:25:10.210
  • to have faith since 93.
  • 00:25:10.210 --> 00:25:12.170
  • And watch our God impregnate you
  • 00:25:12.170 --> 00:25:14.170
  • with the next level of vision that I guarantee
  • 00:25:14.170 --> 00:25:17.100
  • that you will live to see!
  • 00:25:17.100 --> 00:25:18.230
  • You stood through the sickness.
  • 00:25:18.230 --> 00:25:20.110
  • You stood through the struggle.
  • 00:25:20.110 --> 00:25:21.270
  • You stood through the storm.
  • 00:25:21.270 --> 00:25:23.150
  • You inspired me and the members of faith
  • 00:25:23.150 --> 00:25:25.230
  • to keep on pressing on.
  • 00:25:25.230 --> 00:25:27.200
  • We won't give up, pull up, ease up, or let up!
  • 00:25:27.200 --> 00:25:30.180
  • If we hold you up to keep you running this race,
  • 00:25:30.180 --> 00:25:33.090
  • and we expect for signs, members, and wonders to come
  • 00:25:33.090 --> 00:25:36.050
  • and exceed at a rapid pace!
  • 00:25:36.050 --> 00:25:38.080
  • We stand with you Pastor Mike.
  • 00:25:38.080 --> 00:25:40.010
  • We honor you, we're praying with you,
  • 00:25:40.010 --> 00:25:41.190
  • and we are winning with you as we finish the race!
  • 00:25:41.190 --> 00:25:43.270
  • Complete the work and get the job done!
  • 00:25:43.270 --> 00:25:46.160
  • The greater your struggle, the greater your reward.
  • 00:25:46.160 --> 00:25:49.100
  • The greater your attack, the greater your comeback!
  • 00:25:49.100 --> 00:25:52.010
  • And don't forget the enemy can't deny, derail,
  • 00:25:52.010 --> 00:25:54.250
  • destroy, or kill a man with purpose!
  • 00:25:54.250 --> 00:25:56.230
  • Finish the race, complete the work,
  • 00:25:56.230 --> 00:25:58.210
  • and get the job done!
  • 00:25:58.210 --> 00:26:00.130
  • What will the enemy do with a person
  • 00:26:00.130 --> 00:26:02.190
  • who refuses to quit?
  • 00:26:02.190 --> 00:26:04.090
  • Finish the race, complete the work, and get the job done.
  • 00:26:04.090 --> 00:26:08.030
  • (triumphant music)
  • 00:26:08.030 --> 00:26:11.190
  • - Can faith help heal?
  • 00:26:34.110 --> 00:26:36.050
  • That's what some doctors are saying, after a local pastor
  • 00:26:36.050 --> 00:26:39.000
  • who was about to die made a miraculous recovery.
  • 00:26:39.000 --> 00:26:42.150
  • - I've never seen a man of God
  • 00:26:42.150 --> 00:26:44.260
  • in a weak state like that.
  • 00:26:46.020 --> 00:26:48.090
  • Technically, by numbers, he should be dead.
  • 00:26:48.090 --> 00:26:52.010
  • (hard rock music)
  • 00:26:53.190 --> 00:26:57.280
  • - And so the only reason that I'm even telling you
  • 00:26:57.280 --> 00:27:00.280
  • about what Pastor Mike has gone through
  • 00:27:00.280 --> 00:27:03.120
  • and how I've handled things,
  • 00:27:03.120 --> 00:27:05.010
  • and how he has taught us the Word of God
  • 00:27:05.010 --> 00:27:07.070
  • to bring those things back to your remembrance,
  • 00:27:07.070 --> 00:27:09.060
  • so you can apply them in your own life,
  • 00:27:09.060 --> 00:27:11.210
  • so we can have a consistency that runs
  • 00:27:11.210 --> 00:27:14.100
  • through this ministry, a consistency of victory.
  • 00:27:14.100 --> 00:27:17.230
  • - Receive this historic commemorative package today.
  • 00:27:17.230 --> 00:27:21.070
  • This package includes the entire story
  • 00:27:21.070 --> 00:27:23.150
  • of Dr. Freeman's healing and victory process,
  • 00:27:23.150 --> 00:27:26.080
  • teaching from Dr. Dee Dee concerning the process
  • 00:27:26.080 --> 00:27:29.010
  • to the promise.
  • 00:27:29.010 --> 00:27:30.090
  • Dr. Freeman's night of celebrating one year
  • 00:27:30.090 --> 00:27:32.150
  • of victory and healing, as well as lots of bonus footage

  • for your enjoyment and encouragement.
  • 00:27:35.180 --> 00:27:38.030
  • - This experience has taught me so much personally
  • 00:27:38.030 --> 00:27:41.140
  • that has carried my faith to the next level,
  • 00:27:41.140 --> 00:27:43.250
  • and I'm so excited, because you now get to have it,
  • 00:27:43.250 --> 00:27:46.230
  • and share it with people that are close to you,
  • 00:27:46.230 --> 00:27:49.210
  • or maybe going through a situation similar or something,
  • 00:27:49.210 --> 00:27:52.150
  • where they just need to be encouraged with their faith,
  • 00:27:52.150 --> 00:27:55.010
  • and this has totally taught me
  • 00:27:55.010 --> 00:27:57.160
  • to focus on the promise, and not the process.
  • 00:27:57.160 --> 00:28:00.250
