  • into your situation because you've been so private.
  • 00:00:41.130 --> 00:00:44.160
  • And they wanna stay in their place,
  • 00:00:44.160 --> 00:00:46.070
  • they wanna mind their business
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:47.260
  • because you haven't invited them in.
  • 00:00:47.260 --> 00:00:49.260
  • - Why is your wife getting on your nerve?
  • 00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:28.230
  • Or why is your husband getting on your nerve?
  • 00:01:28.230 --> 00:01:31.050
  • I promise you, you don't wanna miss
  • 00:01:31.050 --> 00:01:34.010
  • this upcoming table talk discussion
  • 00:01:34.010 --> 00:01:37.040
  • with Dr. Dee Dee.
  • 00:01:37.040 --> 00:01:38.170
  • It's a reason why each other
  • 00:01:38.170 --> 00:01:41.000
  • are getting on each others nerves
  • 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:43.190
  • and we're gon fix that today.
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:45.170
  • Don't leave from where you are.
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:47.240
  • Like she went public with my attack.
  • 00:01:50.240 --> 00:01:54.000
  • She was supposed to keep it quiet.
  • 00:01:54.250 --> 00:01:56.200
  • I went into the hospital and I threatened
  • 00:01:56.200 --> 00:01:59.150
  • the first girl that I walked in to.
  • 00:01:59.150 --> 00:02:01.220
  • That girl Keisha, I'll never forget Keisha.
  • 00:02:01.220 --> 00:02:04.080
  • She's a member of the church.
  • 00:02:04.080 --> 00:02:05.220
  • And I walked in and she took my meter and Keisha said
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:08.290
  • "Pastor!"
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:10.060
  • I said "Keisha, I can barely breathe, Keisha.
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:13.170
  • "Don't you tell a single soul that I'm in here.
  • 00:02:15.240 --> 00:02:18.240
  • "Oh Pastor I won't tell anything.
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:20.220
  • "It's against the HIPAA, the NAPA, the PIPA."
  • 00:02:20.220 --> 00:02:23.240
  • - HIPAA, HIPAA law.
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:25.100
  • - What is it?
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:26.120
  • - HIPAA.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:27.190
  • - Okay, well you know, as long as you know
  • 00:02:27.190 --> 00:02:28.290
  • you know what I'm saying.
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:30.120
  • "It's against some law for me to tell somebody."
  • 00:02:30.230 --> 00:02:34.170
  • And I wanted to just keep it under the radar.
  • 00:02:34.170 --> 00:02:37.270
  • I didn't want anybody to know.
  • 00:02:37.270 --> 00:02:39.130
  • This one right here went public with the thing.
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:42.230
  • Internet, Facebook, Instagram, I'm like,
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:46.060
  • "Are you serious?!"
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:47.280
  • I was asleep, I didn't have any rebuttal.
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:50.160
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:52.040
  • And it caused people.
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:55.100
  • I was talking to John Terry today.
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:57.040
  • He said when I got wind from one of the
  • 00:02:57.040 --> 00:03:00.050
  • documentary's that you put out,
  • 00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:03.050
  • he said "I had people praying seven days a week,
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:07.210
  • "24 hours for Dr. Mike Freeman."
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:11.090
  • So now, subsequently, if she had not put it out,
  • 00:03:12.020 --> 00:03:15.250
  • look at the prayer.
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:17.010
  • She called Matt and Laurie Crouch,
  • 00:03:17.010 --> 00:03:19.100
  • then they ran what's that
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:22.190
  • lower third Nicole.
  • 00:03:23.270 --> 00:03:25.230
  • I know your name.
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:27.020
  • Nicole, what is it?
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:29.290
  • Lower third.
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:31.220
  • They ran in the lower third "We need the Body of Christ
  • 00:03:31.240 --> 00:03:35.020
  • "praying for Dr. Mike Freeman."
  • 00:03:35.020 --> 00:03:37.010
  • People all over the world was praying for me
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:40.110
  • because we went public with it.
  • 00:03:40.110 --> 00:03:42.170
  • We could've kept within our family,
  • 00:03:42.170 --> 00:03:44.150
  • but we took it to our bigger family.
  • 00:03:44.150 --> 00:03:47.050
  • The Body of Christ.
  • 00:03:47.070 --> 00:03:48.150
  • Now some of the family members
  • 00:03:48.150 --> 00:03:50.140
  • in the body of Christ wanted me dead.
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:53.170
  • But thank God for the ones who wanted me to live.
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:59.020
  • So what I'm saying to you
  • 00:03:59.110 --> 00:04:02.230
  • from this just discussion,
  • 00:04:02.230 --> 00:04:05.000
  • maybe your mom and dad knows a little
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:07.210
  • something about, and they are afraid to intervene
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:11.070
  • into your situation because you've been so private.
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:14.100
  • And they wanna stay in their place,
  • 00:04:14.100 --> 00:04:16.010
  • they wanna mind their business
  • 00:04:16.010 --> 00:04:17.200
  • because you haven't invited them in.
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:20.180
  • And you have set that up from the premise
  • 00:04:21.000 --> 00:04:24.000
  • of what people have been saying in our society.
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:26.250
  • And is that the way to go about it?
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:29.020
  • Because if I got my children's answers, even in marriage,
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:33.290
  • how fool would they be to try to work it out on their own?
  • 00:04:33.290 --> 00:04:38.040
  • We tried to work it out, ooh Jesus.
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:42.170
  • - Ooh, and that was because
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:45.030
  • of the information that I received.
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:46.260
  • I remember when I was young, my mother used to tell us--
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:49.210
  • - Wait a minute, did we hear that correctly?
  • 00:04:49.210 --> 00:04:53.090
  • That was because the information you received?
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:58.080
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:04:59.220
  • She finally admits
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:01.220
  • to it was her fault all the time.
  • 00:05:03.010 --> 00:05:05.070
  • Say it one more time.
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:06.180
  • Can the media department run that back?
  • 00:05:06.270 --> 00:05:09.160
  • (DeeDee laughs)
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:13.180
  • Oh we gonna be nice to each other.
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:16.130
  • But I remember when we were younger,
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:19.230
  • my mom used to tell us all the time.
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:21.190
  • She used to say "When you get married."
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.060
  • - Yup.
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:24.190
  • - You know, "Don't you come back and tell me nothing!"
  • 00:05:24.190 --> 00:05:26.020
  • I mean we were little kids but she had a bad experience
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:29.000
  • getting involved in one of her sister's marriage
  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:32.290
  • and saying something - [Pastor] That's typical.
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:34.140
  • - [DeeDee] and then they was mad or whatever.
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:35.180
  • It didn't turn out right.
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:36.260
  • And so she came back and she started telling us
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:39.040
  • while we were younger "Whenever you get married don't ever."
  • 00:05:39.040 --> 00:05:42.020
  • And so that's all I knew.
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:43.200
  • So when I first got married, you know,
  • 00:05:43.200 --> 00:05:45.230
  • I was like "Well I guess I just have to suffer alone."
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:48.120
  • You know, pray that God will reveal it to somebody
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:51.080
  • which is the dumbest thing. - [Pastor] Dumb.
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:52.260
  • - [DeeDee] You know, you going to church praying
  • 00:05:52.260 --> 00:05:54.110
  • that God will tell somebody, they gonna see something on us
  • 00:05:54.110 --> 00:05:57.160
  • and then they gonna say whatever they need to say to us
  • 00:05:57.160 --> 00:05:59.210
  • to get us together.
  • 00:05:59.210 --> 00:06:01.010
  • You know we just didn't do it.
  • 00:06:01.010 --> 00:06:03.040
  • - [DeeDee and Mike] They didn't say anything
  • 00:06:03.040 --> 00:06:05.050
  • and we didn't say anything.
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:06.160
  • - [Pastor] And subsequently I would go back
  • 00:06:06.160 --> 00:06:07.290
  • to the house with you.
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.160
  • - Not saying anything.
  • 00:06:10.090 --> 00:06:11.190
  • - Not saying anything.
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:13.020
  • - Mmm hmm, it was a mess.
  • 00:06:13.020 --> 00:06:14.160
  • - And that's how it was.
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:16.000
  • And that's why I'm sure most people have heard
  • 00:06:16.000 --> 00:06:19.000
  • even in their relationship, "Don't bring that to me."
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:22.130
  • Even when I would come home, I didn't want to go home.
  • 00:06:22.210 --> 00:06:25.000
  • I would go to my mother and father's house.
  • 00:06:25.000 --> 00:06:26.290
  • Instead of them sitting down and talking to me
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:29.180
  • and sharing with me, "I don't want to get in your business,
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:31.240
  • "so you get your stuff and you get on out of here,
  • 00:06:31.240 --> 00:06:33.290
  • "and you go home.
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:34.290
  • "You done made your decision.
  • 00:06:34.290 --> 00:06:36.210
  • "Cause I don't wanna have no problem with DeeDee
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:42.160
  • "after y'all get back together.
  • 00:06:42.160 --> 00:06:44.130
  • "At the rate things are going,
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:48.070
  • "we may not be getting back together dad."
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:51.120
  • - We ain't get no help.
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:53.000
  • Then we just decided to do what we knew to do.
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:57.140
  • - But we had help.
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:06:59.050
  • We involved individuals in our relationship.
  • 00:06:59.050 --> 00:07:02.290
  • And so why go through stuff.
  • 00:07:03.070 --> 00:07:05.020
  • And I want Tim to know that I'm here for you.
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:07.190
  • I don't know Tim like that, I really don't know Mr. Bowman.
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:10.120
  • I think he's a wonderful guy.
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:12.120
  • I appreciate him, he's my daughter's choice.
  • 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:15.040
  • I wouldn't have chose him I was her,
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:17.190
  • but that's her choice.
  • 00:07:17.280 --> 00:07:21.070
  • - Don't listen to him Tim.
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:23.060
  • - Yeah, yeah, but I wanted to - [DeeDee] That's one of the
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:26.230
  • be so cool with him and Keisha - [DeeDee] questions on here.
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:29.130
  • - [Pastor] in a sense because Keisha is a very quiet
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:32.000
  • kind of reserved individual.
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:34.090
  • And I don't ever want to push my way
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:37.220
  • or be pushing in their relationship.
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:40.070
  • But I love family, I'm a family cat.
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:42.130
  • - But tell them what you always say
  • 00:07:42.130 --> 00:07:43.190
  • cause being in this position.
  • 00:07:43.190 --> 00:07:45.120
  • You know about you say to Kevin and Keisha
  • 00:07:46.010 --> 00:07:49.060
  • and you know, different things about their own.
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:52.020
  • They got their own family.
  • 00:07:53.140 --> 00:07:55.070
  • You're not gonna try to. (Britney mumbles)
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:56.290
  • - [Pastor] Huh?
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:58.050
  • - How you always tell him--
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:08:00.030
  • - Tell them what I say cause I'm not sure of all of it.
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:03.110
  • - You always say Kevin is his own man he runs his house.
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:07.210
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:08.240
  • Even if we bought the house.
  • 00:08:09.250 --> 00:08:11.090
  • (Pastor stutters and laughs)
  • 00:08:11.090 --> 00:08:13.150
  • - Well, you need to fix that.
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:15.130
  • - [DeeDee] You didn't buy.
  • 00:08:16.240 --> 00:08:18.020
  • - [Pastor] I didn't buy the house we set it up,
  • 00:08:18.020 --> 00:08:19.160
  • made it very comfortable for them and that kind of thing.
  • 00:08:19.160 --> 00:08:23.010
  • But his name is on the house, it's his house.
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:27.010
  • I didn't put my name on the house.
  • 00:08:27.010 --> 00:08:28.210
  • Although, he didn't even know he was gonna be living there.
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:32.080
  • Yeah, with Tim.
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:33.230
  • Tim got a house already.
  • 00:08:34.070 --> 00:08:37.050
  • But that's your house.
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:39.050
  • I'm not coming in your house running your house.
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:41.160
  • You just better come when I call you.
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:43.190
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:45.250
  • Josh your house too.
  • 00:08:47.070 --> 00:08:48.110
  • I said call my houses back.
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:50.090
  • Cause I would really love to have them in my house today.
  • 00:08:51.230 --> 00:08:56.000
  • We would make a great family together right in the house.
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:59.100
  • But I love family, it's my thing.
  • 00:08:59.220 --> 00:09:01.100
  • It's a part of my assignment.
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:03.130
  • When the Bible says train up a child and the.
  • 00:09:03.170 --> 00:09:06.030
  • Huh, I do what?
  • 00:09:06.030 --> 00:09:07.190
  • You ain't coming back Josh?
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:09.090
  • Keisha looking like "No, I ain't gonna do that."
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:12.170
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:14.160
  • It would be cool, but what I'm saying,
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:18.170
  • you got your own house.
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:20.090
  • And I love that, but that's just how
  • 00:09:20.170 --> 00:09:23.230
  • connected I am to you all.
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:26.060
  • Why is your spouse getting on your nerve
  • 00:09:32.290 --> 00:09:37.080
  • and that's the question we wanna answer.
  • 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:39.140
  • You're saying she's getting on your nerve.
  • 00:09:39.140 --> 00:09:42.150
  • She's saying,
  • 00:09:42.150 --> 00:09:43.180
  • - He's getting on my nerves
  • 00:09:43.180 --> 00:09:44.250
  • - And why?
  • 00:09:44.250 --> 00:09:46.010
  • And I know they're different things that
  • 00:09:46.010 --> 00:09:48.140
  • occur in the relationship that are challenging
  • 00:09:48.140 --> 00:09:52.100
  • just because they are two different individuals
  • 00:09:52.100 --> 00:09:55.120
  • locked into this thing we call covenant.
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:59.010
  • So, naturally speaking, you would think
  • 00:09:59.010 --> 00:10:01.130
  • that there would be times where you would come to an impasse
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:06.130
  • or you just have these little quirks about your life.
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:11.140
  • You know, you like pickin' your toes
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:16.010
  • or you like cracking your knuckles
  • 00:10:16.010 --> 00:10:18.040
  • or you take a sip of water and it gets everybody attention.
  • 00:10:18.040 --> 00:10:23.040
  • - You leave crumbs all on the table
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:26.140
  • - All different kinda things.
  • 00:10:26.140 --> 00:10:27.200
  • - Or put the toilet paper roll on backwards
  • 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:30.010
  • or don't put the top on the toothpaste.
  • 00:10:30.010 --> 00:10:32.260
  • don't make up the bed.
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:34.080
  • - Well, I don't really know how you
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:35.110
  • put the toilet paper on backwards.
  • 00:10:35.110 --> 00:10:36.160
  • - You know 'cause some people like it
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:38.010
  • flipped a different way.
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:39.140
  • - So it can come under here instead of going over top.
  • 00:10:39.140 --> 00:10:40.180
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:41.290
  • - So, you know, just like you said,
  • 00:10:41.290 --> 00:10:43.060
  • lil' things that kinda get in the way
  • 00:10:43.060 --> 00:10:46.230
  • and cause you to be irritated.
  • 00:10:46.230 --> 00:10:49.160
  • - Yeah absolutely, and this it the proclivity
  • 00:10:49.160 --> 00:10:52.110
  • and propensity in every relationship that exist
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:56.140
  • and for a long time, I didn't pay much attention
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:11:01.130
  • to a lot of things that she was doing
  • 00:11:01.130 --> 00:11:04.290
  • they just kinda got underneath my skin.
  • 00:11:04.290 --> 00:11:07.070
  • You know how someone can say something
  • 00:11:07.070 --> 00:11:09.240
  • or do something or make certain gestures that can just
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:12.270
  • rub you the wrong way.
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:15.020
  • And I'm certain that I have been doing the same things
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:18.270
  • with her and the spirit of the Lord
  • 00:11:18.270 --> 00:11:23.020
  • began to deal with me about why she got on my nerve.
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:28.020
  • Because I would sometimes boast about
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:32.220
  • and not boast, but discuss - Proudly say
  • 00:11:32.220 --> 00:11:37.020
  • - It was not that I would proudly say
  • 00:11:37.020 --> 00:11:39.210
  • I thought that it was something so
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:42.260
  • - Common
  • 00:11:42.260 --> 00:11:44.000
  • - germane or common to relationships
  • 00:11:44.000 --> 00:11:47.170
  • that from time to time, it's OK.
  • 00:11:47.170 --> 00:11:49.240
  • - It was OK, because everybody
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:51.060
  • got on each others nerves.
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:52.180
  • - Like I thought every relationship argued, you know,
  • 00:11:52.180 --> 00:11:57.100
  • until I got that revelation.
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:12:01.170
  • I was really set free from that.
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:04.100
  • And I'm certain you have heard
  • 00:12:04.100 --> 00:12:06.050
  • that particular story before, but if you haven't
  • 00:12:06.050 --> 00:12:09.050
  • it's worth repeating.
  • 00:12:09.050 --> 00:12:10.070
  • - Yeah, it was good.
  • 00:12:10.070 --> 00:12:11.120
  • - So, we were in
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:13.090
  • You remember the story?
  • 00:12:13.090 --> 00:12:14.020
  • - Yeah, I remember.
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:14.210
  • - Tell 'em.
  • 00:12:14.210 --> 00:12:15.210
  • - We were in one of our meetings,
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:17.240
  • our marriage made easy meetings
  • 00:12:17.240 --> 00:12:19.200
  • and we had about seven or eight hundred couples there
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:21.280
  • and you asked a question,
  • 00:12:21.280 --> 00:12:24.100
  • "How many of you have never argued?"
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:27.040
  • - Yeah, right.
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:28.170
  • - And we had about two couples that raised their hands.
  • 00:12:28.170 --> 00:12:30.220
  • - Just two couples - Just two couples
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:32.070
  • - out of all of these couples lift their hands
  • 00:12:32.070 --> 00:12:34.160
  • so I had me a good time with that one.
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:36.240
  • - Yeah, you know you went in.
  • 00:12:36.240 --> 00:12:38.180
  • He laughed and made all kinda faces
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:41.240
  • and gestures like, "Yeah, whatever."
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:44.170
  • And all of the other couples, they laughed
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.000
  • and they looked at 'em like, you know they were lyin'
  • 00:12:47.000 --> 00:12:49.200
  • wanted to pray for 'em, cast out that lyin' devil.
  • 00:12:49.200 --> 00:12:51.280
  • - (laughing)
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:53.060
  • - You know, because for us, that was so common.
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:55.030
  • It was like, OK everybody argues, what?
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:57.150
  • - It was not that you stay argumentative
  • 00:13:00.120 --> 00:13:02.110
  • - Right.
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:03.180
  • - but you have opportunities, it's natural
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.240
  • you would think.
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:06.240
  • - Yeah, you would think.
  • 00:13:06.240 --> 00:13:07.230
  • - Yeah, absolutely.
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:09.070
  • And so I asked them whether or not they've been married
  • 00:13:09.070 --> 00:13:11.280
  • for three weeks, for weeks and I really
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:14.130
  • had a big time with it.
  • 00:13:14.130 --> 00:13:15.270
  • Well, when I got in the car, the spirit of God said,
  • 00:13:15.270 --> 00:13:19.140
  • "Let me ask you a question."
  • 00:13:19.140 --> 00:13:20.270
  • And anytime God is about to ask you a question
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:25.080
  • or if He asks you a question, it is not because
  • 00:13:25.080 --> 00:13:29.030
  • - He doesn't know the answer.
  • 00:13:29.030 --> 00:13:30.090
  • - he doesn't know the answer and so
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:32.150
  • Dr. Frederick K.C. Price is my pastor of course
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:35.070
  • and the spirit of God asked me,
  • 00:13:35.070 --> 00:13:37.160
  • "Well, when have you ever argued with Him?"
  • 00:13:37.160 --> 00:13:42.010
  • And I've been with this man for about 19, 20 years
  • 00:13:42.010 --> 00:13:47.010
  • and I have never once argued with him.
  • 00:13:47.080 --> 00:13:51.080
  • Well, the spirit of God pointed out to me
  • 00:13:51.080 --> 00:13:54.070
  • that the reason why I have never argued with him is because
  • 00:13:54.070 --> 00:13:59.070
  • I always want to present or convey
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:04.000
  • an impressionable disposition with him
  • 00:14:04.000 --> 00:14:07.160
  • of honor and respect and even though there's been
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:11.180
  • some things that he's said
  • 00:14:11.180 --> 00:14:13.030
  • - That's what I was getting ready to ask you
  • 00:14:13.030 --> 00:14:14.090
  • because a lot of people would say,
  • 00:14:14.090 --> 00:14:15.260
  • "Ok, he hasn't done anything that would cause you."
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:18.160
  • - Yeah, yeah he has.
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:20.180
  • - You know, they would try to downplay it.
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:21.290
  • - Absolutely
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:23.120
  • - Like, OK well that's not a problem because he has
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:24.280
  • never done anything to me that cause you, you know.
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:28.080
  • - Yeah, well that's not the case
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:30.120
  • and so, we don't interact as much as you and I interact
  • 00:14:30.120 --> 00:14:34.180
  • but the premise was still the same because
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:37.040
  • the spirit of God says,
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:39.030
  • "You know why you don't argue with him?
  • 00:14:39.030 --> 00:14:41.210
  • "It's because you are constantly interested
  • 00:14:41.210 --> 00:14:44.210
  • "in maintaining a certain impression."
  • 00:14:44.210 --> 00:14:46.270
  • And this is what He said, and I'll never forget.
  • 00:14:46.270 --> 00:14:49.220
  • He said, "And you don't care what you say to Dee Dee."
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:54.130
  • Changed my life.
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:56.260
  • - Changed my life.
  • 00:14:56.260 --> 00:14:58.020
  • - (laughing)
  • 00:14:58.020 --> 00:14:59.030
  • - (laughing)
  • 00:14:59.030 --> 00:15:00.030
  • - Changed all of our lives.
  • 00:15:00.030 --> 00:15:01.230
  • And so when you think in terms of that,
  • 00:15:01.230 --> 00:15:04.020
  • you just kinda mull over what we just said.
  • 00:15:04.020 --> 00:15:08.090
  • Let that permeate.
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:09.280
  • Let that infiltrate your heart.
  • 00:15:09.280 --> 00:15:13.130
  • It's called ruminate.
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.180
  • - Ruminate.
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:15.170
  • - Go over and over with that.
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:17.140
  • Are you constantly trying to give the best impression
  • 00:15:17.140 --> 00:15:22.130
  • that you can give to your spouse.
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:25.100
  • That changed my life.
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:26.240
  • So it was with this whole thing about
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:30.060
  • my saying because it's typical,
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:32.270
  • you can have moments where your spouse
  • 00:15:32.270 --> 00:15:34.260
  • will get on your nerve, but why?
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:37.130
  • And the spirit of God told me, even in that case,
  • 00:15:37.130 --> 00:15:40.110
  • it was because of my immaturity
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:43.020
  • that I am not built up enough to maintain
  • 00:15:43.020 --> 00:15:46.280
  • the kinda relationship with her where nothing she does
  • 00:15:46.280 --> 00:15:51.030
  • interrupts or offends who I am.
  • 00:15:51.030 --> 00:15:55.030
  • And it literally proved to me that I didn't have
  • 00:15:55.030 --> 00:15:58.200
  • what I'm supposed to be equipped with to never be moved.
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:03.110
  • He said, "It's apart of your immaturity
  • 00:16:03.110 --> 00:16:06.030
  • "and it's a part of pride."
  • 00:16:06.030 --> 00:16:07.290
  • Because pride would suggest, who are you
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:11.180
  • to say certain things or do certain things to me.
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:15.260
  • Now the scripture is clear.
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:17.190
  • If you judge yourself, you won't be judged of any man.
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:21.180
  • And so, introspect, evaluation of oneself
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:26.180
  • will cause an understanding and that's where I was.
  • 00:16:27.080 --> 00:16:30.150
  • And from that day, to this present day, this girl.
  • 00:16:30.150 --> 00:16:34.170
  • And here's the kicker, she hasn't stopped doing
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:38.250
  • some of the same stuff she used to do
  • 00:16:38.250 --> 00:16:42.070
  • - To get on your nerves.
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:43.110
  • - pre gettin' on my nerve days.
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:45.040
  • Now in the post gettin' on my nerve days,
  • 00:16:45.040 --> 00:16:48.030
  • you would think that there would've been a change
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:51.120
  • that caused the change in me.
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:53.010
  • No, you can change whatever you are going through right now.
  • 00:16:53.010 --> 00:16:57.210
  • How big is the God that you claim
  • 00:16:57.210 --> 00:17:01.250
  • is within you, lives within you?
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:04.220
  • So, greater is He.
  • 00:17:04.220 --> 00:17:06.120
  • And He is, greater than anything
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:09.110
  • that your spouse can do to cause a disruption in your peace.
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:13.030
  • And we call forth uninterrupted peace
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:16.220
  • in our relationship, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:20.000
  • This has been table talk with Dr. Mike and Dee Dee Freeman.
  • 00:17:20.000 --> 00:17:23.290
  • We love you.
  • 00:17:23.290 --> 00:17:25.120
  • - You know while you were making that point about
  • 00:17:26.200 --> 00:17:26.240
  • You know you bring a guy home.
  • 00:17:33.050 --> 00:17:33.220
  • - [DeeDee] Here, you need this.
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:34.190
  • - You bring a guy home and
  • 00:17:34.190 --> 00:17:37.240
  • any of you moms ever not
  • 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:40.000
  • you know, feel the guy or the girl?
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:44.250
  • Let me tell you you younger baby something.
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:48.230
  • If your mama ain't feeling or your daddy
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:51.130
  • is not feeling the guy or the girl you bring home,
  • 00:17:51.130 --> 00:17:54.040
  • I would reconsider.
  • 00:17:55.000 --> 00:17:56.150
  • I wouldn't push my way through that.
  • 00:17:57.180 --> 00:17:59.180
  • I really wouldn't, I really wouldn't.
  • 00:18:00.050 --> 00:18:02.020
  • I would have to.
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:02.270
  • Now...
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:04.060
  • Some of you are sitting here--
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:07.080
  • - Well do you think it would depend
  • 00:18:07.080 --> 00:18:08.160
  • on the relationship they have with their parent?
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:10.210
  • - Oh absolutely, yeah.
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:12.170
  • That's a good point.
  • 00:18:12.170 --> 00:18:13.240
  • - [Britney] The parent's have with each other.
  • 00:18:13.240 --> 00:18:15.000
  • - And the relationship that the parent's
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:16.210
  • have with each other.
  • 00:18:16.210 --> 00:18:18.080
  • Cause some of your parents don't know.
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:21.040
  • They shouldn't be advising you of anything.
  • 00:18:22.140 --> 00:18:24.270
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:27.030
  • You know the parents I'm talking about.
  • 00:18:28.240 --> 00:18:31.090
  • (Pastor laughs)
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:34.090
  • It's not a good time to look at your wife and say.
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:36.180
  • Talk to me Bre.
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:42.000
  • - For me that was very important.
  • 00:18:42.290 --> 00:18:44.250
  • I even shared that with Tim like,
  • 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:47.070
  • "Hey, if my dad."
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:48.240
  • You know I knew my mom was gonna be cool,
  • 00:18:48.240 --> 00:18:50.140
  • but "If my dad don't like you."
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:52.250
  • You know "If my dad don't like you we done."
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:56.110
  • You know, like God bless you see you later.
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:59.070
  • Because I've been under him all of my life.
  • 00:18:59.070 --> 00:19:02.240
  • And I know he knows me very well.
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:05.010
  • He knows how I act. - [Pastor] God dog come on Bre.
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:06.150
  • He knows I respond to certain things.
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:09.010
  • And if he think you not the one, I know you not the one.
  • 00:19:09.010 --> 00:19:12.020
  • I don't have to go to God.
  • 00:19:12.020 --> 00:19:13.100
  • I don't have to do a whole bunch of stuff.
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:14.290
  • You know, I would just dismiss you nicely
  • 00:19:15.050 --> 00:19:18.060
  • and "Hey let's be friends."
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:20.020
  • - [Pastor] Dismiss him nicely.
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:22.140
  • (Pastor laughs)
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:25.010
  • - Friend zone!
  • 00:19:25.010 --> 00:19:26.180
  • - [Pastor] I loved it.
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:29.110
  • - No but, oh.
  • 00:19:29.110 --> 00:19:30.210
  • - [Pastor] That was - [Brelyn] That was
  • 00:19:30.280 --> 00:19:32.050
  • - [Pastor] your phone. - [Brelyn] my cellphone.
  • 00:19:32.050 --> 00:19:33.020
  • - [Brelyn] And it's okay.
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:34.090
  • It's alright. - [Pastor] Mmm, on this marble.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:35.090
  • - Hmm, it's okay, no worries.
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:36.140
  • But yes, that was very important.
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:38.020
  • And he taught us like "Hey, I have your best
  • 00:19:38.020 --> 00:19:40.130
  • "interests at heart."
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:41.190
  • And even from a younger age, it wasn't like
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.050
  • we got 15 and he started teaching us certain things.
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:47.220
  • Cause at 15 I'm like, okay.
  • 00:19:47.220 --> 00:19:50.040
  • I'm kinda on my own, not on my own,
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:52.100
  • but you know, - [Pastor] Right.
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:53.210
  • - [Brelyn] 15 is a little hard to kinda start
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:55.080
  • teaching things you should of taught a long time ago.
  • 00:19:55.080 --> 00:19:57.060
  • - [Pastor] Wow, wow, come on.
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:19:58.190
  • - So yeah, a long time ago he would tell me
  • 00:19:59.010 --> 00:20:01.060
  • "I have your best interest.
  • 00:20:01.060 --> 00:20:02.110
  • "I will never do nothing to hurt you.
  • 00:20:02.110 --> 00:20:05.030
  • "I'll always make sure you're happy.
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:07.080
  • "I may do certain things that may not
  • 00:20:07.080 --> 00:20:08.290
  • "make you happy at that moment,
  • 00:20:08.290 --> 00:20:10.210
  • "but it's because I love you."
  • 00:20:10.210 --> 00:20:12.040
  • So he would show me those certain kind of things
  • 00:20:12.040 --> 00:20:14.260
  • and now when I've found someone,
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.120
  • I knew okay, this lines up.
  • 00:20:17.260 --> 00:20:20.250
  • You know he did this he does that, okay cool.
  • 00:20:20.250 --> 00:20:23.220
  • So when I went back to my dad,
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:25.160
  • first he was like "Six years?!"
  • 00:20:25.190 --> 00:20:28.100
  • Cause Tim is six years older than me.
  • 00:20:28.100 --> 00:20:30.240
  • - [Pastor] I was thinking he's six years older than my baby.
  • 00:20:30.240 --> 00:20:33.210
  • Why don't you go on somewhere and pick on
  • 00:20:33.210 --> 00:20:35.040
  • somebody your age.
  • 00:20:35.040 --> 00:20:36.230
  • - Go on about your business!
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:39.000
  • And when I first met Tim, I was like okay I like him.
  • 00:20:40.000 --> 00:20:44.170
  • I had liked him for a long time.
  • 00:20:44.170 --> 00:20:47.190
  • Before I met him. - [Pastor] Really.
  • 00:20:47.260 --> 00:20:49.210
  • - [Brelyn] I was like okay, yeah I like him.
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:51.290
  • I like that one.
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:53.010
  • And when we started to become--
  • 00:20:53.010 --> 00:20:54.180
  • - [Pastor] Cause there was another one that
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:56.050
  • I was really kinda--
  • 00:20:56.050 --> 00:20:57.110
  • - You thought but, I dodged that bullet.
  • 00:20:57.110 --> 00:21:00.210
  • (Brelyn speaking foreign language)
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:02.240
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:05.090
  • No, no, no, no, no, no, no,
  • 00:21:10.280 --> 00:21:12.240
  • but I'm just happy to have who God
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:16.010
  • has designed for me.
  • 00:21:16.080 --> 00:21:17.160
  • I know my purpose in life
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:20.020
  • and I know what I'm supposed to be doing.
  • 00:21:20.020 --> 00:21:21.250
  • And I know that Tim's life lines up with mine.
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:24.230
  • - [Pastor] Come on.
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:26.010
  • - And what we'll be able to do in ministry
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:27.070
  • I am too excited because I know it'll flow
  • 00:21:27.070 --> 00:21:30.250
  • the way it's supposed to flow.
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:32.130
  • - [Pastor] Well Tim your parents had to have
  • 00:21:32.290 --> 00:21:35.160
  • some input as well.
  • 00:21:35.160 --> 00:21:37.110
  • How'd you navigate all of that?
  • 00:21:37.110 --> 00:21:39.250
  • - They actually had a world of input,
  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:42.270
  • but I'm with you on that.
  • 00:21:43.050 --> 00:21:45.100
  • I'm a little different.
  • 00:21:45.100 --> 00:21:46.190
  • - [Pastor] Okay.
  • 00:21:46.190 --> 00:21:47.240
  • - Becasue Dr. DeeDee made a good point.
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:49.240
  • I believe it--
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:51.160
  • - [Pastor] That's not a good way to start.
  • 00:21:51.160 --> 00:21:52.140
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:21:52.140 --> 00:21:54.080
  • - I'm a little bit more under the mindset of
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:58.030
  • relationship with your parents do matter.
  • 00:21:58.030 --> 00:22:00.250
  • I don't think it's just.
  • 00:22:00.250 --> 00:22:02.170
  • I also think the man and the woman,
  • 00:22:03.010 --> 00:22:05.010
  • or the son and the daughter.
  • 00:22:05.010 --> 00:22:06.250
  • That makes a big difference as well,
  • 00:22:06.250 --> 00:22:08.160
  • as well as age.
  • 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:10.020
  • At this point in my life, my parents,
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:15.020
  • we've been raised to take what they give us
  • 00:22:15.120 --> 00:22:19.280
  • and at that point use Godly wisdom and then go.
  • 00:22:20.120 --> 00:22:23.110
  • So it's not whatever they say we have to do.
  • 00:22:23.110 --> 00:22:26.200
  • - [Pastor] Okay.
  • 00:22:26.200 --> 00:22:27.260
  • - They just weigh so heavy in our life,
  • 00:22:27.260 --> 00:22:29.260
  • it's basically like we're doing what they're saying,
  • 00:22:29.260 --> 00:22:32.160
  • but they don't want it to be
  • 00:22:32.160 --> 00:22:34.010
  • whatever they say we have to do.
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:35.230
  • Especially at this point in my life.
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:37.140
  • - [Pastor] Right.
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:38.290
  • - But I definitely understand when I have a daughter,
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.070
  • I would want her to be just like that.
  • 00:22:40.270 --> 00:22:42.220
  • - Yeah, yeah, and that's a great point Tim
  • 00:22:43.130 --> 00:22:45.110
  • because it could appear to be like
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:48.140
  • a level of control implemented there.
  • 00:22:48.140 --> 00:22:51.180
  • a level of control implemented there.
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:51.270
  • And I never wanted her or even you in that respect
  • 00:22:52.210 --> 00:22:56.280
  • to feel like there's any control that I am
  • 00:22:56.280 --> 00:23:00.240
  • enforcing in your relationship.
  • 00:23:00.240 --> 00:23:03.010
  • That's why I've always made it clear to Keisha
  • 00:23:03.010 --> 00:23:05.240
  • and also Kevin that you're your own people.
  • 00:23:05.240 --> 00:23:10.200
  • And you have the right to make whatever decisions.
  • 00:23:10.200 --> 00:23:14.200
  • I on the other hand knowing some things
  • 00:23:15.160 --> 00:23:18.100
  • about life, and ministry, and handling domestic
  • 00:23:18.140 --> 00:23:22.090
  • issues and so forth and so on.
  • 00:23:22.090 --> 00:23:24.120
  • I can just share with you my two cent.
  • 00:23:24.120 --> 00:23:27.140
  • Advise is for two things to take or to leave.
  • 00:23:27.200 --> 00:23:31.120
  • And it would be entirely up to you
  • 00:23:31.120 --> 00:23:33.090
  • and I'm glad you made that clear.
  • 00:23:33.090 --> 00:23:35.170
  • Because I stand in the same premise with you in that.
  • 00:23:35.170 --> 00:23:38.230
  • I don't wanna just say do this and you do this.
  • 00:23:38.230 --> 00:23:41.220
  • But as one who's been under my authority,
  • 00:23:42.210 --> 00:23:46.210
  • as it relates to her destiny and her future,
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:50.200
  • I had her best interests at heart at that particular time.
  • 00:23:50.200 --> 00:23:54.240
  • When I give her hand to you in marriage, guess what?
  • 00:23:54.240 --> 00:23:58.290
  • That is cut off, you be the man at that time.
  • 00:23:58.290 --> 00:24:02.200
  • But I'll kill you if you mess up.
  • 00:24:02.200 --> 00:24:04.210
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:24:04.210 --> 00:24:06.150
  • Now dig this, dig this.
  • 00:24:08.050 --> 00:24:10.080
  • We gotta also understand the weight of a man
  • 00:24:10.100 --> 00:24:14.010
  • and the weight of a man's voice.
  • 00:24:14.010 --> 00:24:16.030
  • And that's where you father's play such significant role
  • 00:24:16.030 --> 00:24:20.020
  • in the relationship because the weight of a woman
  • 00:24:20.020 --> 00:24:23.230
  • is like about 25 pounds compared to the weight
  • 00:24:23.230 --> 00:24:27.230
  • of a man who is about 500 pounds.
  • 00:24:27.230 --> 00:24:31.180
  • When a man speaks in an environment
  • 00:24:31.180 --> 00:24:34.140
  • it's more weightier than a woman speaking.
  • 00:24:34.140 --> 00:24:37.180
  • I promise you that.
  • 00:24:37.240 --> 00:24:39.060
  • My mama used to really exercise and enforce that,
  • 00:24:39.060 --> 00:24:42.230
  • and it registered in us.
  • 00:24:42.230 --> 00:24:44.250
  • She would just say "Wait til your daddy get home."
  • 00:24:44.250 --> 00:24:48.010
  • She coupled her weight with his weight
  • 00:24:50.120 --> 00:24:54.220
  • and it literally caused something to stand up in us
  • 00:24:54.220 --> 00:24:58.130
  • to respect and honor in a greater magnitude.
  • 00:24:58.130 --> 00:25:02.000
  • You two coming together with the weight that you possess
  • 00:25:02.000 --> 00:25:04.180
  • and what you say and do, it's gonna be an unstoppable force.
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:08.210
  • Make marriage easy.
  • 00:25:11.040 --> 00:25:11.170

  • (indistinct chatter from audience)

  • - Right, and so after I got passed myself,
  • 00:25:36.240 --> 00:25:40.000
  • I was like okay.
  • 00:25:41.040 --> 00:25:42.210

  • 00:26:22.100 --> 00:26:25.190
  • And we want to come to
  • 00:26:25.190 --> 00:26:27.140
  • your ministry.
  • 00:26:28.100 --> 00:26:29.190
  • You have to call a pastor,
  • 00:26:29.190 --> 00:26:31.210
  • or have your pastor to call,
  • 00:26:31.210 --> 00:26:34.040

  • We're not asking you for a dime
  • 00:26:39.280 --> 00:26:42.200
  • we just want to use your place
  • 00:26:42.200 --> 00:26:45.100
  • well, actually, His place
  • 00:26:45.100 --> 00:26:47.270
  • that you have been assigned over,
  • 00:26:47.270 --> 00:26:50.160
  • so that we can come and enrich marriages.
  • 00:26:50.160 --> 00:26:53.290
  • I just ran into a young lady the other night, and she said,
  • 00:26:53.290 --> 00:26:58.290
  • "Pastor Freeman, you, with all due respect,
  • 00:26:58.290 --> 00:27:03.010
  • you are a fool,
  • 00:27:03.010 --> 00:27:04.130
  • you and that Dr. DeeDee."
  • 00:27:04.130 --> 00:27:06.100
  • She called me a fool, can you imagine that?
  • 00:27:06.100 --> 00:27:08.280
  • But then she concluded by saying,
  • 00:27:08.280 --> 00:27:10.270
  • "My marriage is
  • 00:27:10.270 --> 00:27:12.170
  • so much better
  • 00:27:12.170 --> 00:27:13.290
  • because of your transparency,
  • 00:27:13.290 --> 00:27:16.120
  • your candor, and your humor."
  • 00:27:17.150 --> 00:27:20.020
  • I don't know where this humor has come from, I really don't.
  • 00:27:20.020 --> 00:27:24.120
  • It's not even something I want.
  • 00:27:24.120 --> 00:27:26.160
  • I recall Jesse Duplantis saying the same thing,
  • 00:27:26.160 --> 00:27:29.290
  • that God had just made it a part of my ministry.
  • 00:27:29.290 --> 00:27:33.040
  • And we have a good time, we have an exciting time,
  • 00:27:33.040 --> 00:27:35.280
  • and I'm just that enriched, I'm just that fulfilled.
  • 00:27:35.280 --> 00:27:40.020
  • And I want some of this to get on you and your area.

  • 00:27:47.190 --> 00:27:49.290
  • and literally try
  • 00:27:49.290 --> 00:27:52.020
  • to destroy
  • 00:27:52.020 --> 00:27:53.180
  • and even kill the Ministry of Mike and DeeDee Freeman,
  • 00:27:53.180 --> 00:27:56.220
  • but we're up again, we're strong,
