  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:00:33.170 --> 00:00:34.280
  • God knew that things were gonna go up,
  • 00:00:34.280 --> 00:00:36.070
  • things were gonna go down.
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:37.250
  • Members were going all over the place
  • 00:00:37.250 --> 00:00:39.270
  • and He didn't want me to lend my attention
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:42.180
  • to what was going on,
  • 00:00:42.180 --> 00:00:44.090
  • but to lend my attention to what He had promised me.
  • 00:00:44.090 --> 00:00:47.130
  • So as soon, say as soon.
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:49.180
  • - [Congregation] As soon.
  • 00:00:49.180 --> 00:00:50.170
  • - As soon as you hear something
  • 00:00:50.170 --> 00:00:51.260
  • contrary to the word of God,
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.190
  • you gotta hear God's voice on your situation, amen.
  • 00:00:53.190 --> 00:00:57.060
  • my darling wife came
  • 00:01:00.020 --> 00:01:01.150
  • and watched me every single day.
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:04.040
  • Now I got 30 plus days to go asleep, at this point.
  • 00:01:04.040 --> 00:01:09.040
  • And she's coming in there every single day,
  • 00:01:10.060 --> 00:01:13.110
  • believing God that you should live and not die.
  • 00:01:14.080 --> 00:01:17.160
  • Can y'all just help me to honor the love of my life.
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:23.110
  • (congregation cheers)
  • 00:01:23.110 --> 00:01:26.050
  • Really the most powerful.
  • 00:01:26.050 --> 00:01:27.280
  • Woo, Jesus!
  • 00:01:30.050 --> 00:01:31.220
  • I love you girl!
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:36.020
  • Since you came
  • 00:01:39.260 --> 00:01:41.280
  • Into my life
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:44.140
  • Hey
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:45.200
  • I've been all right
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:48.080
  • Hey
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:49.230
  • I'm gonna kiss you right slam in the mouth
  • 00:01:49.230 --> 00:01:52.020
  • when I see you girl.
  • 00:01:52.020 --> 00:01:53.170
  • I love that DeeDee so much.
  • 00:01:55.120 --> 00:01:57.000
  • Thank you so much for honoring her.
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:59.090
  • And just like she stood, and we stood,
  • 00:02:00.180 --> 00:02:04.110
  • you can stand.
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:06.010
  • Ah where do I go from here?
  • 00:02:08.020 --> 00:02:10.020
  • Thank you Holy Spirit that's what I'll do.
  • 00:02:13.220 --> 00:02:15.250
  • 'Cause I don't have time to continue my lesson.
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:19.160
  • I spent more time, if you would've been listening better,
  • 00:02:19.200 --> 00:02:23.110
  • and agreeing with me better.
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:28.090
  • Let me point something out to you.
  • 00:02:29.150 --> 00:02:32.020
  • And sweetie, get up, split the screen, yeah.
  • 00:02:34.160 --> 00:02:37.290
  • Sweetie come and help me.
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:40.100
  • Because there may be some things
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.150
  • that you can inject in this impartation
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:46.160
  • that can assist me.
  • 00:02:48.130 --> 00:02:51.160
  • Because Josh said
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:55.030
  • something last week
  • 00:02:55.030 --> 00:02:57.030
  • that really got my attention
  • 00:03:01.000 --> 00:03:03.240
  • to observe more than I realize.
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:07.120
  • They were giving these tributes to
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:12.280
  • the goodness of God, and to their mother, and me
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:18.060
  • concerning the episode at this celebration.
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:21.260
  • And Brittney talked about how she was in faith.
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:25.070
  • And Brelyn talked about how she was in faith.
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:28.190
  • And everybody's crying, and we just had us a good time.
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:32.020
  • Josh stands up and says.
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:34.260
  • For the very first time I was hearing that.
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:37.200
  • And if I'm not mistaken sweetie,
  • 00:03:37.200 --> 00:03:40.240
  • it was your first time hearing what he said as well.
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:44.050
  • - Yes.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:45.050
  • - You're all loud.
  • 00:03:45.240 --> 00:03:47.010
  • Yes.
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:51.240
  • That's correct.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:54.110
  • This boy stood up and he said,
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:57.120
  • "I did not have any faith.
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:02.190
  • "As a matter of fact, I thought you were going to die."
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:09.150
  • Which was a bit shocking.
  • 00:04:11.170 --> 00:04:15.020
  • Where were you when you heard that sweetie?
  • 00:04:15.020 --> 00:04:17.190
  • - I wasn't shocked at all.
  • 00:04:17.190 --> 00:04:19.040
  • I already knew what he was.
  • 00:04:19.040 --> 00:04:21.020
  • I knew he was there.
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:23.060
  • That's why I never put any pressure
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:25.020
  • on him to come around or to be in the room
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:27.220
  • with you or anything.
  • 00:04:27.220 --> 00:04:29.060
  • I've never allowed him to even come into that space.
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:33.220
  • - Now watch this, you never knew.
  • 00:04:34.170 --> 00:04:36.270
  • Okay you knew that he didn't have faith for this.
  • 00:04:40.040 --> 00:04:45.020
  • - Right.
  • 00:04:45.020 --> 00:04:46.010
  • - But did you know he thought
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:48.270
  • that I was going to die?
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:50.140
  • - No, I didn't know what he thought.
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:52.160
  • But I knew he wasn't there to believe God with us.
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:56.060
  • - He wasn't there to believe God with us.
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:04:59.200
  • - No, I mean really, I'm not talking about in the hospital.
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:02.170
  • I just knew he wasn't in that place of faith.
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:05.230
  • I just knew it.
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:07.070
  • You just know when people aren't in agreement with you.
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:09.100
  • You know, you know what they say out of there--
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:11.170
  • - Okay that's the kinda thing I wanna point out to you.
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:15.110
  • How do you know?
  • 00:05:15.220 --> 00:05:17.100
  • Or how can you know if the people that
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:20.220
  • you are asking to stand with you are in faith?
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:24.130
  • See, because if your life posterity depends on
  • 00:05:27.040 --> 00:05:31.290
  • the prayer partner that you have
  • 00:05:32.160 --> 00:05:34.100
  • relative to this principle of agreement,
  • 00:05:34.100 --> 00:05:37.020
  • do you have the right persons?
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:40.150
  • And I promise you, some of you are asking the wrong
  • 00:05:42.160 --> 00:05:45.130
  • people to agree with you.
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:47.170
  • And see, there was a special notation
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:52.230
  • that I made with respect to that,
  • 00:05:52.230 --> 00:05:55.120
  • because even down to your spouse sometimes,
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:59.090
  • they may not be equipped to handle
  • 00:05:59.090 --> 00:06:02.070
  • what you have to stand for.
  • 00:06:02.070 --> 00:06:05.130
  • Here's the most important part of what Josh said.
  • 00:06:09.050 --> 00:06:13.080
  • He said "But I knew to agree
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:17.160
  • "with those that had faith."
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:20.010
  • Did you hear what I just said?
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:24.290
  • He didn't have any faith in particularly of his own.
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:30.140
  • But he had the faith of his mother and his sister
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:34.140
  • and those that I have taught previously that was around.
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:38.270
  • Watch this, he didn't have the same level of faith,
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:42.280
  • because ladies and gentlemen, faith has to be built.
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:47.160
  • It has to be developed.
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:49.210
  • Now what you gotta understand about faith today
  • 00:06:49.210 --> 00:06:52.040
  • is you already have enough faith to raise the dead.
  • 00:06:52.040 --> 00:06:56.050
  • Shout that as a matter of fact.
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:57.290
  • Say right now.
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:58.280
  • - [Congregation] Right now.
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:06:59.230
  • - I have.
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:00.190
  • - [Congregation] I have.
  • 00:07:00.190 --> 00:07:01.130
  • - [Pastor] Enough faith.
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:02.120
  • - [Congregation] Enough faith.
  • 00:07:02.120 --> 00:07:03.120
  • - [Pastor] To move mountains.
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:04.170
  • - [Congregation] To move mountains.
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:05.150
  • - [Pastor] To raise the dead.
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:06.200
  • - [Congregation] To raise the dead.
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:07.180
  • - [Pastor] To open blind eyes.
  • 00:07:07.180 --> 00:07:09.010
  • - [Congregation] To open blind eyes.
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:10.030
  • - [Pastor] To see the lame walk.
  • 00:07:10.030 --> 00:07:11.120
  • - [Congregation] To see the lame walk.
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:12.160
  • - [Pastor] Right now.
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:13.140
  • - [Congregation] Right now.
  • 00:07:13.140 --> 00:07:14.070
  • - [Pastor] I have.
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:15.010
  • - [Congregation] I have.
  • 00:07:15.010 --> 00:07:15.290
  • - [Pastor] That kind of faith.
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:17.030
  • - [Congregation] That kind of faith.
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:18.070
  • - But now faith has to be developed.
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:20.210
  • The faith that you already has, has to be developed.
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:26.290
  • And if in fact you have been developed to the place
  • 00:07:26.290 --> 00:07:31.070
  • where you are capable of standing,
  • 00:07:31.200 --> 00:07:33.260
  • at least be in agreement with those who are.
  • 00:07:33.260 --> 00:07:38.140
  • Would it be advantageous sweetie,
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:41.240
  • for somebody to just flat right out go ahead
  • 00:07:41.240 --> 00:07:45.010
  • and confess and admit to their partner
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:48.140
  • or to whomever they are agreeing with
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:51.090
  • that I don't have right now, that level of faith,
  • 00:07:51.200 --> 00:07:55.110
  • but I will agree with you.
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:57.180
  • - If that works for you.
  • 00:07:57.200 --> 00:07:59.170
  • I mean 'cause I used to do that with you.
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:02.010
  • I would tell you, I didn't agree,
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:04.230
  • or didn't understand certain things that you were doing.
  • 00:08:04.230 --> 00:08:07.100
  • But I never put my mouth on it.
  • 00:08:07.100 --> 00:08:09.080
  • I told you I would just be in agreement.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:11.190
  • I'll be in agreement with your faith.
  • 00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:14.060
  • Wasn't necessarily being in agreement with
  • 00:08:14.210 --> 00:08:16.150
  • what was going on.
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:17.200
  • I was in agreement with your faith.
  • 00:08:17.200 --> 00:08:19.140
  • And that's exactly what Josh did.
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:22.000
  • 'Cause even though he didn't have the faith
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:24.200
  • to believe God, well he had the faith,
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:26.180
  • but even though he didn't operate--
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:27.270
  • - He had the faith.
  • 00:08:27.270 --> 00:08:29.000
  • Thank you for making that correct.
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:29.280
  • He had the faith.
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:31.130
  • - Right, even though he didn't use his faith to operate in,
  • 00:08:31.130 --> 00:08:35.030
  • operate in, believe in God for his dad to be healed,
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:39.100
  • he also knew not to put his mouth on it.
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:42.110
  • He never opened his mouth and said anything negative.
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:45.230
  • He never came to me and said
  • 00:08:45.230 --> 00:08:46.280
  • "Ma, I think daddy is gonna die."
  • 00:08:46.280 --> 00:08:48.270
  • Because he knows that's not how we talk.
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:51.040
  • So regardless of what he believe,
  • 00:08:51.130 --> 00:08:53.020
  • he knew not to put his mouth on it and so.
  • 00:08:53.020 --> 00:08:56.140
  • - Say this, faith.
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:58.130
  • - [Congregation] Faith.
  • 00:08:58.130 --> 00:08:59.070
  • - [Pastor] Is a force.
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:00.080
  • - [Congregation] Is a force.
  • 00:09:00.080 --> 00:09:01.110
  • - [Pastor] Say faith.
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:02.100
  • - [Congregation] Faith.
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:03.040
  • - [Pastor] Has a voice.
  • 00:09:03.040 --> 00:09:04.030
  • - [Congregation] Has a voice.
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:05.060
  • - [Pastor] It speaks.
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:06.050
  • - [Congregation] It speaks.
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:07.020
  • - In the supernatural arena.
  • 00:09:07.020 --> 00:09:08.210
  • - [Congregation] In the supernatural arena.
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:09.220
  • - [Pastor] On our behalf.
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:10.270
  • - [Congregation] On our behalf.
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:11.250
  • - To get God kinda results.
  • 00:09:11.250 --> 00:09:13.230
  • - [Congregation] To get God kinda results.
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:15.280
  • - Now what
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:18.180
  • I saw in that is what.
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:21.290
  • What's that passage of scripture sweetie?
  • 00:09:22.100 --> 00:09:24.140
  • Where that chick held Jesus up?
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:28.050
  • Mark five. - [DeeDee] Mark five.
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:30.030
  • - [Pastor] That chick, the woman with the issue.
  • 00:09:30.030 --> 00:09:31.270
  • And most women have issues.
  • 00:09:31.270 --> 00:09:33.220
  • - Mark five.
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:38.180
  • - Mark five, get Mark five real quick for me.
  • 00:09:38.180 --> 00:09:41.250
  • Get Mark five.
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:43.090
  • You know women have issues.
  • 00:09:43.090 --> 00:09:45.030
  • It was a woman that was at the well.
  • 00:09:45.120 --> 00:09:46.260
  • It was a woman who messed up the first time.
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:50.150
  • It was always a woman.
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:53.050
  • - Always about a man.
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:54.250
  • - Go to Mark 5:25.
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:10:00.260
  • And I'll be brief, but I wanna point out something
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:06.220
  • since I don't have.
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:08.040
  • Y'all remember the woman who had an issue?
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:10.110
  • There it is right there, woman with the issue.
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:13.070
  • 26 right.
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:14.290
  • Go 26.
  • 00:10:14.290 --> 00:10:16.100
  • "She has suffered many things, of many doctors.
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:19.080
  • "She spent all that she had and was nothing better."
  • 00:10:19.080 --> 00:10:22.030
  • Okay, verse 27.
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:24.070
  • When she heard what comes by hearing.
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:27.080
  • - [Congregation] Faith.
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:28.020
  • - Faith comes by what?
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:29.020
  • - [Congregation] Hearing.
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:29.250
  • - And hearing by?
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:30.250
  • - [Congregation] The word of God.
  • 00:10:30.250 --> 00:10:31.230
  • - Came in the press behind them.
  • 00:10:31.230 --> 00:10:33.130
  • Came in the press behind them.
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:34.170
  • What's the press?
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:36.010
  • All of the group of people, the multitude came in the press.
  • 00:10:37.150 --> 00:10:40.160
  • It wasn't a printing press, it was a great number of people.
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:44.130
  • Verse 28, come on go with me.
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:47.020
  • "For she said."
  • 00:10:47.020 --> 00:10:49.130
  • Now there's a process in this whole faith process
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:52.140
  • that includes or involves your mouth.
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:55.190
  • Because when faith, watch this, takes root in your heart
  • 00:10:55.280 --> 00:11:00.130
  • the way that it should it will then have a voice.
  • 00:11:00.130 --> 00:11:04.120
  • The Bible says you have what you say.
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:06.220
  • When you believe in your heart out of the abundance
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:08.270
  • of your heart, the mouth will speak.
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:11.220
  • So when faith is fully matured in your heart
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:15.040
  • germane to whatever area you believe in God for,
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:18.010
  • you're gonna speak.
  • 00:11:18.010 --> 00:11:19.070
  • As a matter of fact, the scripture said
  • 00:11:19.070 --> 00:11:20.250
  • take no thought by saying.
  • 00:11:20.250 --> 00:11:23.000
  • Now if you take a thought and the thought
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:25.040
  • is not in line with what you are in agreement for,
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:29.090
  • don't let it come out of your mouth.
  • 00:11:29.090 --> 00:11:31.110
  • Because now you are cooperating with the process of faith
  • 00:11:31.110 --> 00:11:35.080
  • when you start speaking your doubt.
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:37.140
  • Because it works in the (stutters)
  • 00:11:37.140 --> 00:11:41.260
  • it works in the reverse situation.
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:45.060
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:11:45.060 --> 00:11:46.170
  • Just like faith is developed, doubt is developed.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:50.110
  • By saying it.
  • 00:11:50.260 --> 00:11:52.060
  • Are you clear so far?!
  • 00:11:52.060 --> 00:11:54.080
  • Come on, well hear fast so I can move on.
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:57.040
  • She said, look what she said.
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:11:59.150
  • "If I may touch His clothes I'll be whole."
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:01.210
  • That's what she said.
  • 00:12:01.210 --> 00:12:03.100
  • Literally fortifying the faith, that's really hard.
  • 00:12:03.190 --> 00:12:06.110
  • "Straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up
  • 00:12:06.110 --> 00:12:08.120
  • "and she felt in her body that she was" what?
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:10.270
  • - [Congregation] Healed.
  • 00:12:10.270 --> 00:12:11.240
  • - Healed of that plague.
  • 00:12:11.240 --> 00:12:12.230
  • Come on now.
  • 00:12:12.230 --> 00:12:13.140
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:12:13.140 --> 00:12:14.210
  • You can't wait til sickness hit
  • 00:12:14.210 --> 00:12:16.260
  • and try to do this.
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:18.090
  • You can't wait til a situation arises and try this.
  • 00:12:19.220 --> 00:12:23.250
  • It's difficult to build anything in the middle of a storm.
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:27.140
  • Your head won't be right.
  • 00:12:27.140 --> 00:12:29.170
  • You can't get yourself settled enough
  • 00:12:29.170 --> 00:12:31.160
  • to be in agreement.
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.220
  • And that's what happened to Josh.
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.090
  • But dig this, right after my episode,
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:37.050
  • we got word that my grandson Josh Jr.
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:40.160
  • had a heart defect.
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:42.030
  • It was from some dumb medication
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:44.060
  • that both my babies were taking and they didn't know.
  • 00:12:44.060 --> 00:12:47.050
  • It was some anti-nauseated, I don't know.
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:52.030
  • And now they got multiple suits that we discovered.
  • 00:12:53.160 --> 00:12:57.020
  • And I got one too.
  • 00:12:57.020 --> 00:12:58.140
  • I got the best of the best so I can sue everybody
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:01.130
  • I can think about suing to make sure my grandkids.
  • 00:13:01.130 --> 00:13:04.240
  • If they gotta go through this.
  • 00:13:04.240 --> 00:13:07.260
  • Like that boy, they tell me that boy gotta
  • 00:13:07.260 --> 00:13:10.100
  • have a heart surgery at three,
  • 00:13:10.100 --> 00:13:12.050
  • gotta have heart surgery at 12,
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:14.060
  • gotta have heart surgery at 21.
  • 00:13:14.060 --> 00:13:17.000
  • I come against that in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:13:18.110 --> 00:13:20.220
  • But at the same time, you're gonna pay for your mistake.
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:24.080
  • And they knew there were problems with that medication!
  • 00:13:24.160 --> 00:13:27.160
  • So I'm telling all the ladies here
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:29.170
  • who are still in child bearing kind of range,
  • 00:13:29.170 --> 00:13:32.210
  • if they wanna give you that.
  • 00:13:32.210 --> 00:13:34.090
  • Man, eat a saltine cracker.
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:37.110
  • That's what they used to give you back in the old school.
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:40.080
  • Some ginger ale and a saltine cracker.
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:43.000
  • And get over it.
  • 00:13:43.140 --> 00:13:44.180
  • - How he know?
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:45.250
  • - Okay, but right after that episode,
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:49.260
  • Josh saw faith.
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:52.010
  • That's why you gotta win your faith fight,
  • 00:13:52.010 --> 00:13:54.160
  • because there are people who need to see
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:56.150
  • your faith fight and who can gather now
  • 00:13:56.150 --> 00:14:00.060
  • from your faith fight that our God is God.
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:03.230
  • Man, they told that boy that,
  • 00:14:04.060 --> 00:14:05.290
  • and he literally stood and said,
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:09.070
  • "The same God that raised my daddy up
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:13.050
  • "is the same God."
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:15.050
  • "And Jesus immediately anointed Himself
  • 00:14:20.030 --> 00:14:22.040
  • "that virtue had gone out of Him.
  • 00:14:22.040 --> 00:14:23.280
  • "He turned around and said" watch this.
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:26.170
  • "Who touch me, who touch my clothes?
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:29.290
  • "And His disciples said unto Him.
  • 00:14:30.170 --> 00:14:32.050
  • "Come on man, you see all these people around you,
  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:34.080
  • "what's wrong with you?"
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:35.140
  • I mean they didn't quite say it like that,
  • 00:14:35.250 --> 00:14:37.060
  • but that's what they said.
  • 00:14:37.060 --> 00:14:38.270
  • Come on next verse, verse 32.
  • 00:14:39.130 --> 00:14:41.060
  • "Who touch me?"
  • 00:14:41.060 --> 00:14:42.060
  • And watch this.
  • 00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:43.120
  • "And He looked around about to see her
  • 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:45.130
  • "who had done this thing,
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:46.270
  • "but the woman fearing and trembling
  • 00:14:46.270 --> 00:14:48.280
  • "knowing what was done in her,
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:51.000
  • "came and fell down before Him and told Him all the truth."
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:55.010
  • Again, that's the last thing you want a woman to do.
  • 00:14:55.010 --> 00:14:57.110
  • To tell you all the truth.
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:14:58.150
  • 'Cause that's gonna take some time.
  • 00:14:58.150 --> 00:14:59.260
  • "About 17 years ago."
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:03.020
  • No man.
  • 00:15:03.020 --> 00:15:04.200
  • "And He said unto her, 'Daughter, I have made you whole.'"
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:09.210
  • What made her whole?
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:11.160
  • (congregation responds)
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.270
  • So your being whole is contingent upon your faith.
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:16.070
  • Then this becomes personal folks.
  • 00:15:17.010 --> 00:15:18.220
  • Now when your being whole relies on
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:22.120
  • your development of your faith.
  • 00:15:22.120 --> 00:15:24.180
  • You won't have time.
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:26.090
  • Because "Empire" is about to come on again man.
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:29.040
  • You gonna give all your time to Miss Cookie
  • 00:15:29.040 --> 00:15:31.280
  • and Lucifer, I mean Lucious.
  • 00:15:31.280 --> 00:15:33.250
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:36.030
  • They're actors okay.
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:39.280
  • I love Terrance Howard, that's my main man.
  • 00:15:39.280 --> 00:15:42.080
  • Don't know him personally,
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:43.060
  • but if he knew me he would know
  • 00:15:43.060 --> 00:15:44.250
  • he would be my main man.
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:46.050
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:15:46.050 --> 00:15:48.000
  • He said "Our faith has made you whole.
  • 00:15:48.240 --> 00:15:50.190
  • "Go in peace and be whole of the plague."
  • 00:15:50.190 --> 00:15:53.290
  • Now dig this, "While he yet spake they came
  • 00:15:53.290 --> 00:15:56.170
  • "from one of the Jairus house a certain which" what?
  • 00:15:56.170 --> 00:16:00.180
  • "Said, 'Ma'am your daughter is dead.
  • 00:16:01.100 --> 00:16:03.150
  • "Don't trouble the master any longer.
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:06.080
  • "Your servant's dead."
  • 00:16:06.160 --> 00:16:07.210
  • Now we need the next set of elevator's.
  • 00:16:07.210 --> 00:16:10.160
  • 'Cause we just took this thing to a whole 'nother level.
  • 00:16:13.090 --> 00:16:15.280
  • It's one thing to know that she's sick.
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:20.180
  • And you can come and heal her.
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.040
  • It's an entirely different animal,
  • 00:16:23.100 --> 00:16:25.200
  • when the report is that she's dead.
  • 00:16:25.290 --> 00:16:28.080
  • And that's why I thank God for the development
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:32.180
  • of faith over miracles.
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:35.130
  • I love miracles.
  • 00:16:35.200 --> 00:16:36.260
  • I'll take a miracle any day of the week.
  • 00:16:36.260 --> 00:16:38.210
  • But I would rather rely on my faith development,
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:43.060
  • than relying on a miracle.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:45.250
  • One pastor just told me recently,
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.290
  • he came to me after I taught at FICWFM
  • 00:16:48.290 --> 00:16:51.150
  • and he said "I appreciate you sharing your story.
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:54.250
  • "But mostly what people missed is the fact
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:57.080
  • "you never mentioned the miracle.
  • 00:16:57.080 --> 00:16:59.150
  • "The doctor mentioned miracle, medical miracle,
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:03.240
  • "but you never mentioned miracle."
  • 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:05.210
  • He said "And the problem I have with miracles
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:08.040
  • "is that miracles don't take anybody's faith,
  • 00:17:08.040 --> 00:17:10.280
  • "and it's no guarantee that they're
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:12.200
  • "gonna ever stay with God."
  • 00:17:12.200 --> 00:17:14.170
  • He said classic point, he got a phone call
  • 00:17:14.260 --> 00:17:17.110
  • from one of his parishioners saying that
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:20.150
  • his son was just killed in a motorcycle accident.
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:23.290
  • He asked the man, the father,
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:26.190
  • "Do you want your son to live or die?"
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:29.130
  • He said "Pastor, I don't think you understand
  • 00:17:29.130 --> 00:17:31.130
  • "what I just said."
  • 00:17:31.130 --> 00:17:32.190
  • He said "He died, he just died moments ago."
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:35.030
  • He said "Do you want him to live or die?"
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:38.090
  • He said "I want him to live,
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:40.100
  • "but pastor you don't understand, he's dead."
  • 00:17:40.100 --> 00:17:42.270
  • He said "If you will follow my instructions he shall live."
  • 00:17:42.270 --> 00:17:46.130
  • Gave him instructions over the phone.
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:49.090
  • Went back to the hospital where the dead body was,
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:53.120
  • and begin to do what the pastor told him to do.
  • 00:17:53.120 --> 00:17:56.290
  • The very next day, Sunday morning.
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:59.250
  • The father ran into the church crying and weeping.
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:03.160
  • Disrupted the service.
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:05.050
  • And the father just thought he didn't
  • 00:18:05.050 --> 00:18:07.050
  • follow his instructions or whatever have you.
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:09.230
  • Thought the boy was dead and gone.
  • 00:18:09.230 --> 00:18:12.040
  • But when he began to listen
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:13.270
  • to the fathers weeping and wailing,
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:16.260
  • He was hearing thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus.
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:19.210
  • The mother came in right after the father came in
  • 00:18:20.060 --> 00:18:23.260
  • and then immediately following the mother,
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:25.280
  • the son walked in the place
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:28.070
  • and they all fell down at the altar
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:31.050
  • and they worshiped God together
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:32.260
  • because God raised him up
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:34.130
  • based upon the faith and the miracle that was performed.
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:39.090
  • Four months later, the pastor said,
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:41.290
  • "I hadn't seen them since and they have
  • 00:18:41.290 --> 00:18:43.250
  • "gone back out into the world."
  • 00:18:43.250 --> 00:18:46.000
  • See, what happens in miracle situation
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:48.200
  • is that you haven't built a relationship with God
  • 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:52.120
  • to know the awesomeness of His power.
  • 00:18:52.120 --> 00:18:55.220
  • Where there's no guarantee you'll stay
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:58.010
  • with Him through a miracle.
  • 00:18:58.010 --> 00:18:59.250
  • But when you develop your faith,
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:01.250
  • that means it has to be through a personal relationship
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:05.230
  • that you have developed with God.
  • 00:19:06.030 --> 00:19:08.160
  • Where now you know the reality of God.
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:11.130
  • Children of God, there are people who are fainting everyday.
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:15.160
  • I just heard a believer tell me,
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:17.290
  • "I don't even know if God exists anymore."
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:21.180
  • People are becoming weary.
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:25.060
  • People are fainting.
  • 00:19:25.060 --> 00:19:27.080
  • Push somebody, lean on 'em!
  • 00:19:28.210 --> 00:19:30.070
  • Say this is not the time to faint.
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:32.030
  • - [Congregation] This is not the time to faint.
  • 00:19:32.030 --> 00:19:34.220
  • - [DeeDee] Pastor Mike.
  • 00:19:36.190 --> 00:19:37.270
  • - [Pastor] I knew you had something to say.
  • 00:19:38.120 --> 00:19:39.200
  • - I do, and I wanted to go back to this point,
  • 00:19:39.200 --> 00:19:41.190
  • because you've been talking about these thoughts.
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:43.200
  • I'm gonna hurry up.
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:44.280
  • So you've been talking about these thoughts,
  • 00:19:44.280 --> 00:19:46.260
  • and you've been going through this whole process of faith.
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:49.140
  • But what I like the most in this story,
  • 00:19:49.140 --> 00:19:51.230
  • in this transitioning to the next story again
  • 00:19:51.230 --> 00:19:54.140
  • about Jairus is that in verse 36 when it says
  • 00:19:54.140 --> 00:19:58.090
  • "As soon as Jesus heard
  • 00:19:58.090 --> 00:20:01.020
  • "the word that was spoken
  • 00:20:01.020 --> 00:20:03.230
  • "He said unto the ruler."
  • 00:20:04.100 --> 00:20:06.090
  • It was like as soon as He heard it.
  • 00:20:06.090 --> 00:20:08.250
  • So as soon as you get a negative thought,
  • 00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:11.080
  • as soon as you hear something that's contrary
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:14.090
  • to what you're believing.
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:15.210
  • You gotta know the word of God so you can
  • 00:20:15.210 --> 00:20:17.260
  • hear God's voice speaking on your behalf.
  • 00:20:17.260 --> 00:20:21.110
  • As soon as you hear, because as soon as you hear something
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:25.170
  • if you allow it to penetrate into your heart,
  • 00:20:25.170 --> 00:20:28.010
  • you're gonna receive that thought
  • 00:20:28.010 --> 00:20:29.220
  • and you're gonna begin to meditate on it
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:31.110
  • believing that this is what your fruit should be.
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:33.150
  • - [Pastor] As soon!
  • 00:20:33.150 --> 00:20:34.290
  • - But as soon, that's the same thing that happened to me.
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:37.240
  • Because it didn't say Jairus took the thought.
  • 00:20:37.240 --> 00:20:41.120
  • It didn't say Jairus fainted.
  • 00:20:41.250 --> 00:20:43.270
  • It didn't say Jairus was scared.
  • 00:20:43.270 --> 00:20:46.080
  • It didn't say Jairus was losing his faith.
  • 00:20:46.080 --> 00:20:49.020
  • But Jesus, He stepped right in in the beginning
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:51.280
  • to grab it, to say "Uh uh, I'm not gonna
  • 00:20:51.280 --> 00:20:53.230
  • "let that one get in.
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:54.280
  • "I'm not gonna let that one penetrate."
  • 00:20:54.280 --> 00:20:56.220
  • And that's the same thing that happened to me
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:58.200
  • when you were in the hospital.
  • 00:20:58.200 --> 00:21:00.080
  • Because I told 'em about how I had a God focusing moment.
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:03.280
  • God Himself had to speak to me and told me
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:06.210
  • to focus on the promise and not on the process.
  • 00:21:06.210 --> 00:21:10.150
  • Even though I wasn't focusing on the process,
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:13.280
  • God knew that things were gonna go up,
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:16.230
  • things were gonna go down.
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:18.110
  • Members were going all over the place
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:20.130
  • and He didn't want me to lend my attention
  • 00:21:20.130 --> 00:21:23.040
  • to what was going on,
  • 00:21:23.040 --> 00:21:24.250
  • but to lend my attention to what He had promised me.
  • 00:21:24.250 --> 00:21:27.290
  • So as soon, say as soon.
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:30.040
  • - [Congregation] As soon.
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:31.030
  • - As soon as you hear something
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:32.120
  • contrary to the word of God,
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:34.050
  • you gotta hear God's voice on your situation, amen.
  • 00:21:34.050 --> 00:21:38.020
  • I had to bring that point out.
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:39.170
  • - Show 'em how you stepped in front
  • 00:21:39.270 --> 00:21:41.090
  • of my body when that Pastor came in to pray.
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:44.270
  • - You talking about when you was in the hospital?
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:48.170
  • - [Pastor] Yeah, when I was in the hospital.
  • 00:21:48.170 --> 00:21:49.270
  • - 'Cause I did that a couple of times.
  • 00:21:49.270 --> 00:21:51.200
  • I ain't wanna make sure you was in rehab.
  • 00:21:52.040 --> 00:21:54.060
  • Huh?
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:55.270
  • - Ain't no pastor coming in my bedroom to pray.
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:57.190
  • - No, I'm saying because you were in two places.
  • 00:21:57.190 --> 00:22:00.130
  • I wanted to make sure you was talking about ICU
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:02.080
  • and not the rehab.
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:03.220
  • - Oh yeah, because the pastor showed up in both places.
  • 00:22:03.220 --> 00:22:06.090
  • - [DeeDee] Exactly.
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:07.110
  • - And this one didn't play that.
  • 00:22:07.220 --> 00:22:09.130
  • She didn't play that.
  • 00:22:11.050 --> 00:22:12.190
  • She didn't know where the pastors faith happened to be.
  • 00:22:12.190 --> 00:22:15.010
  • What did he do baby?
  • 00:22:15.120 --> 00:22:16.160
  • He bust in there and say what?
  • 00:22:16.160 --> 00:22:17.290
  • - He bust in, he was talking about
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:19.130
  • "Can I pray, I wanna pray, you know word of prayer."
  • 00:22:19.130 --> 00:22:21.260
  • I was, oh, I jumped in before he could
  • 00:22:21.260 --> 00:22:24.170
  • you know, get in the room good so he couldn't see you.
  • 00:22:24.170 --> 00:22:27.180
  • I was like no.
  • 00:22:27.180 --> 00:22:28.250
  • It was like I was a guard over that.
  • 00:22:28.250 --> 00:22:30.280
  • I was a guard over him.
  • 00:22:31.060 --> 00:22:32.190
  • I couldn't allow anything negative.
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:34.220
  • Here I am believing God, standing in faith.
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:37.040
  • I didn't care who it was.
  • 00:22:37.040 --> 00:22:38.080
  • His mama, his daddy, my son.
  • 00:22:38.080 --> 00:22:40.180
  • It didn't matter to me, - [Pastor] My mama now,
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:41.250
  • you were not coming - [Pastor] no, no.
  • 00:22:41.250 --> 00:22:42.220
  • in this room.
  • 00:22:42.220 --> 00:22:44.060
  • Yeah, your mama, your mama. - [Pastor] You be careful.
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:45.130
  • Not even your mama was in that room.
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:47.070
  • I couldn't allow it--
  • 00:22:47.180 --> 00:22:48.220
  • - [Pastor] Well your mama's so fat.
  • 00:22:48.220 --> 00:22:50.000
  • Oh, oh, oh, kill myself. - [DeeDee] What you say?
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:53.030
  • - [Pastor] Kill myself.
  • 00:22:53.030 --> 00:22:54.080
  • I'm just having fun.
  • 00:22:56.060 --> 00:22:57.290
  • - Don't be talking about my mama.
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:22:59.230
  • But I did, I did.
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:02.240
  • - But my point is, our point is,
  • 00:23:02.240 --> 00:23:05.270
  • is that you stood to protect your interest.
  • 00:23:05.270 --> 00:23:10.030
  • There was one pastor that came in the rehab.
  • 00:23:10.240 --> 00:23:12.280
  • He just, 'cause you don't know what any pastor gonna say.
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:15.170
  • "Lord if it be your will to take him away.
  • 00:23:15.170 --> 00:23:18.200
  • "Take him home Lord, you know best.
  • 00:23:21.160 --> 00:23:23.230
  • "You give and you taketh away."
  • 00:23:24.000 --> 00:23:26.050
  • DeeDee wasn't having that.
  • 00:23:27.110 --> 00:23:29.060
  • So she stepped in.
  • 00:23:29.060 --> 00:23:30.180
  • I can't allow because.
  • 00:23:30.180 --> 00:23:32.180
  • Okay let's see this because there's something
  • 00:23:32.180 --> 00:23:34.280
  • to what we're talking about
  • 00:23:34.280 --> 00:23:36.270
  • relative to what Josh said.
  • 00:23:36.270 --> 00:23:38.220
  • Go to 37 so I can point this out to you.
  • 00:23:38.220 --> 00:23:42.000
  • "And he suffered no man to follow him."
  • 00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:44.060
  • There were multitudes around.
  • 00:23:44.060 --> 00:23:48.170
  • Now He get to the point where
  • 00:23:48.170 --> 00:23:50.130
  • we've reached another level with this situation.
  • 00:23:50.130 --> 00:23:54.110
  • People were following Him and He said
  • 00:23:54.110 --> 00:23:57.000
  • "Okay I'm not allowing anybody to go with me,
  • 00:23:57.000 --> 00:23:59.180
  • "except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James."
  • 00:23:59.180 --> 00:24:04.080
  • Watch this, because there were only certain people
  • 00:24:04.080 --> 00:24:07.010
  • who could handle going to the next set.
  • 00:24:07.010 --> 00:24:09.210
  • And you don't know how severe of a situation
  • 00:24:10.240 --> 00:24:13.190
  • this happens to be when you just let.
  • 00:24:13.190 --> 00:24:16.020
  • She didn't let my mother, she didn't let my father,
  • 00:24:16.020 --> 00:24:18.290
  • not to say or to suggest that they were not in faith.
  • 00:24:18.290 --> 00:24:23.270
  • But she knew where she was,
  • 00:24:23.270 --> 00:24:26.110
  • and she knew where she needed to be,
  • 00:24:26.110 --> 00:24:28.140
  • and there were just certain individuals
  • 00:24:28.140 --> 00:24:30.120
  • who were gonna come near my particular situation.
  • 00:24:30.120 --> 00:24:34.010
  • In order for me to live she said,
  • 00:24:34.010 --> 00:24:36.150
  • "Okay I gotta go with what I know."
  • 00:24:36.150 --> 00:24:38.140
  • And it may seem rude, or it may seem unorthodox,
  • 00:24:38.140 --> 00:24:43.140
  • it may seem, give me a word.
  • 00:24:43.190 --> 00:24:48.160
  • - Rude is good. - [Pastor] Not just strange.
  • 00:24:49.050 --> 00:24:50.280
  • - [Pastor] It may not seem diplomatic.

  • Huh?
  • 00:24:53.000 --> 00:24:53.240
  • - Rude was a good word.
  • 00:24:53.240 --> 00:24:55.090
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, it may seem rude.
  • 00:24:55.230 --> 00:24:59.060
  • Or it may seem any of the above.
  • 00:24:59.060 --> 00:25:01.090
  • But it's a matter of life and death.
  • 00:25:01.090 --> 00:25:03.200
  • You can't have everyone speaking over your situation.
  • 00:25:04.050 --> 00:25:07.260
  • That's why some of the things that God tell you
  • 00:25:07.260 --> 00:25:10.130
  • you better not tell everybody you know.
  • 00:25:10.130 --> 00:25:13.150
  • You better just tell those who you know
  • 00:25:13.150 --> 00:25:16.100

  • 00:25:16.100 --> 00:25:18.170
  • to the second set of elevator.
  • 00:25:18.170 --> 00:25:20.160
  • The same people who rode up with you on the first set
  • 00:25:20.160 --> 00:25:23.190
  • may not be the group that can ride.
  • 00:25:23.190 --> 00:25:26.090
  • Y'all better hear what I'm saying to you.
  • 00:25:26.090 --> 00:25:28.280
  • And it's apparent, it's apparent that they could handle
  • 00:25:30.100 --> 00:25:33.270
  • what was happening around.
  • 00:25:33.270 --> 00:25:35.270
  • But Jesus didn't allow the other group to go with Him.
  • 00:25:35.270 --> 00:25:39.090
  • And He come into the house of the ruler of the synagogue.
  • 00:25:39.090 --> 00:25:41.240
  • Watch this, the girl was in there dead,
  • 00:25:41.240 --> 00:25:44.150
  • and they weeping and wailing.
  • 00:25:44.150 --> 00:25:46.090
  • Okay move on.
  • 00:25:46.090 --> 00:25:47.090
  • And then, watch this.
  • 00:25:47.090 --> 00:25:49.090
  • When he was coming he said unto them,
  • 00:25:49.090 --> 00:25:51.080
  • "Why make this a do?
  • 00:25:51.080 --> 00:25:52.220
  • "What y'all crying for, the girl ain't dead, she's asleep."
  • 00:25:52.220 --> 00:25:56.050
  • Come on.
  • 00:25:56.050 --> 00:25:57.040
  • And then they laugh at him.
  • 00:25:57.040 --> 00:25:58.200
  • "Oh, we know okay."
  • 00:25:59.040 --> 00:26:01.020
  • But when He had put them out,
  • 00:26:01.020 --> 00:26:03.090
  • what Jesus do with the second,
  • 00:26:05.230 --> 00:26:07.200
  • the people who could, you've got to go.
  • 00:26:07.200 --> 00:26:10.010

  • Watch this.
  • 00:26:16.100 --> 00:26:17.160
  • "And entered into where she was lying."
  • 00:26:17.160 --> 00:26:19.010
  • And of course you know the end of the story,
  • 00:26:19.010 --> 00:26:20.220
  • the girl lived and didn't die.
  • 00:26:20.220 --> 00:26:22.170
  • But there are certain people who can go,
  • 00:26:22.280 --> 00:26:25.140
