  • And I don't really mind the methodologies
  • 00:00:01.220 --> 00:00:04.130
  • that are incorporated or embraced, governor in church.
  • 00:00:04.130 --> 00:00:08.020
  • I really don't.
  • 00:00:08.020 --> 00:00:09.080
  • I do mind the changing of a message.
  • 00:00:09.080 --> 00:00:13.210
  • You now, the method may change
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:16.100
  • but the message should never change.
  • 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:18.200
  • And this is just bait.
  • 00:00:18.200 --> 00:00:20.050
  • And in fishing I believe the bait can change
  • 00:00:20.050 --> 00:00:24.080
  • but the hook should never change.
  • 00:00:24.080 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • I knew that's what he wanted me to do.
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.000
  • - [Pastor] I was gonna spend that money.
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:04.090
  • - [DeeDee] He was gonna spend that money.
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:06.000
  • So I turned and I walked.
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:08.170
  • And I wanted to go back and look so bad.
  • 00:01:08.170 --> 00:01:11.150
  • You know how you wanna go and see if it's on?
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:13.070
  • I said "Nope, I'm not going."
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:14.220
  • I knew the devil was trying to make me go back and doubt.
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:16.200
  • I said "I'm not going back, I expect it to come on."
  • 00:01:16.200 --> 00:01:19.160
  • And so when I turned I said "God, I know
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:21.240
  • "he don't believe but show him for me."
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:24.130
  • (audience cheers)
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:24.140
  • And just talked and shared.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:27.160
  • And she was able to pour into me some of the things
  • 00:01:28.110 --> 00:01:30.120
  • that I need to just pick up in.
  • 00:01:30.120 --> 00:01:32.210
  • Or some of the things that could just
  • 00:01:32.210 --> 00:01:34.190
  • refine and become better.
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:37.070
  • So this is our style.
  • 00:01:37.070 --> 00:01:38.270
  • And I think every, let our faithfulness instruct you.
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:42.200
  • Let our examples instruct you.
  • 00:01:42.200 --> 00:01:44.210
  • So you should be at home with your wife
  • 00:01:44.210 --> 00:01:47.050
  • or your husband, and your children, and sitting around.
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:50.150
  • We started off that Friday night with all of our children
  • 00:01:50.150 --> 00:01:54.270
  • being a part of that open meeting.
  • 00:01:54.270 --> 00:01:57.040
  • And so we have this setting,
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:58.210
  • and they set up this set to give it
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:00.280
  • a little feel of us being at home and talking.
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:04.070
  • And as a matter of fact church as we know it
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:07.030
  • is rapidly changing.
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.200
  • And I don't really mind the methodologies
  • 00:02:08.200 --> 00:02:12.100
  • that are incorporated or embraced, governor in church.
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:15.290
  • I really don't.
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:17.050
  • I do mind the changing of a message.
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:21.180
  • You now, the method may change
  • 00:02:21.180 --> 00:02:24.070
  • but the message should never change.
  • 00:02:24.070 --> 00:02:26.170
  • And this is just bait.
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:28.020
  • And in fishing I believe the bait can change
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:32.050
  • but the hook should never change.
  • 00:02:32.050 --> 00:02:34.180
  • Do you object if you got it.
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:36.270
  • Cause I like neck ties, I like church stuff.
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:40.240
  • I like Bibles man, I like turning pages.
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:43.210
  • And now we got these telephone,
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:45.060
  • open collar shirts, I don't have on any socks or anything.
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.240
  • This is not my style.
  • 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:49.060
  • This is not how I've been raised.
  • 00:02:49.060 --> 00:02:51.000
  • And now my kids like, "You gotta loosen up man.
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:53.090
  • "You gotta just drop the tie.
  • 00:02:53.090 --> 00:02:55.030
  • "Get rid of the tie."
  • 00:02:55.030 --> 00:02:56.090
  • I like ties, I like suits, I like Bible,
  • 00:02:56.200 --> 00:02:58.190
  • I like turning the pages, you understand.
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:00.260
  • You know you going to church.
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:02.250
  • Some of y'all don't look like you.
  • 00:03:03.100 --> 00:03:05.010
  • (Pastor stutters)
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:07.140
  • Put on some jeans and a shirt and pick up your phone.
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:10.050
  • And that's cool.
  • 00:03:10.050 --> 00:03:11.150
  • That's the day we live in unfortunately.
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:14.180
  • I can't stand this change, but I gotta adapt
  • 00:03:14.180 --> 00:03:17.190
  • to this change so I can be relevant.
  • 00:03:17.190 --> 00:03:19.250
  • I just can't take it!
  • 00:03:19.250 --> 00:03:21.230
  • - [DeeDee] I love change.
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:23.290
  • - But you don't even look like you're going to church.
  • 00:03:23.290 --> 00:03:25.260
  • Remember when you didn't feel saved,
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:27.260
  • but you put on your tie and you grab your Bible.
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:30.240
  • Shoot I feel saved.
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:32.270
  • Come on, some of y'all know what I'm talking about.
  • 00:03:33.170 --> 00:03:35.110
  • You could of got drunk the night before,
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:37.070
  • but you pick up that Bible.
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:38.280
  • And you on your way - [DeeDee] That coffee table
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:40.260
  • to church. - [DeeDee] Bible.
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:42.020
  • - [Pastor] Pull your cross out of your shirt.
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:45.120
  • - That you hid all week long.
  • 00:03:46.010 --> 00:03:47.170
  • - You hid it all week long and you come out.
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:50.020
  • And what I don't like about that is that
  • 00:03:52.130 --> 00:03:54.270
  • we are adapting to the dress
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:56.250
  • and the phones and the technology.
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:59.050
  • I mean, come on, is this my Bible nowadays?
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:02.160
  • You know, really, it's not my Bible,
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:04.280
  • but it contains the Bible.
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.280
  • And watch this.
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:08.050
  • You don't know, I'm in jeans or whatever shirt.
  • 00:04:08.050 --> 00:04:10.230
  • And just got my phone because I got Bible apps on my phone.
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:14.200
  • Now you really don't know who's who.
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:17.020
  • You can't tell back in the day
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:18.250
  • they used to wear the collars.
  • 00:04:18.250 --> 00:04:20.040
  • And you do, (inaudible) straighten up.
  • 00:04:20.040 --> 00:04:22.220
  • Nowadays you don't know if it's red or ludicrous.
  • 00:04:23.100 --> 00:04:27.240
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:30.230
  • - But nowadays they aren't even
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:33.000
  • straighten up with people in collars.
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:35.160
  • Cause the honor's not there.
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:37.100
  • - And the honor's not there.
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:38.180
  • But what disturbs me the most, we are adapting
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:42.090
  • to a culture of our society in our society
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:46.040
  • and yet our message and our mouth is diminishing.
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:50.200
  • Now you dress like them and now you don't
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:54.050
  • even talk like you should.
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:56.080
  • And gay pride just danced themselves
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:04:59.100
  • right down the main street yesterday.
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:03.170
  • And they let their all hang out.
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:06.010
  • And they coming out the closet, and we occupying them.
  • 00:05:06.080 --> 00:05:09.160
  • Cause we're not as pronounced with our message.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:14.050
  • Back to the family.
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.180
  • So the apostle Paul was given the task of going up
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:19.170
  • and now we got these scripture references.
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:21.250
  • Look st some of them.
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:22.290
  • Colossians chapter number three.
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:24.180
  • - Colossians 3:18.
  • 00:05:24.180 --> 00:05:26.060
  • - Cause he's setting up order.
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:28.100
  • - "Wives, submit to your own husbands."
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:31.270
  • - I like that scripture.
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:32.260
  • - I know you do.
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:34.030
  • "As is fitting in the Lord.
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:36.260
  • - "As it is fitting in the Lord."
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:38.170
  • Okay.
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:40.090
  • - "Husbands, love your wives. - [Pastor] Husbands.
  • 00:05:40.090 --> 00:05:42.030
  • - [DeeDee] "And do not bitter towards them.
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:44.240
  • - "And do not bitter towards them."
  • 00:05:44.240 --> 00:05:47.050
  • Don't do bitter stuff towards your wife.
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:50.160
  • God man, okay I'm not gonna test that.
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:53.270
  • Go on, okay so he talks to the wife.
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:56.130
  • Then he talks to the husband.
  • 00:05:56.130 --> 00:05:57.250
  • Now who is he talking to?
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:58.270
  • - The children.
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:05:59.210
  • - The children, alright.
  • 00:05:59.210 --> 00:06:00.190
  • - "Obey your parents"--
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:01.250
  • - It's something for everybody.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:03.000
  • "Obey your parents in" how many things?
  • 00:06:03.000 --> 00:06:04.210
  • - All things. - [Pastor] All things.
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:06.060
  • - [Pastor] Man, it behooves all of you children
  • 00:06:06.060 --> 00:06:09.000
  • who are to obey your parents.
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.290
  • Obeying your parents is still fly.
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:13.180
  • Did you hear what I said?
  • 00:06:15.040 --> 00:06:16.210
  • Obeying your parents is on fleek.
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:20.140
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:23.190
  • It is.
  • 00:06:25.030 --> 00:06:26.070
  • Obeying your parents is so important
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:28.230
  • and now some parents have adapted this kind
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:31.230
  • of mindset or this (stutters)
  • 00:06:31.230 --> 00:06:36.050
  • philosophy that I'm not gonna be as
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:41.000
  • hard on my children as my parents were.
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:44.180
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:06:44.180 --> 00:06:46.060
  • - Yeah, what does that mean?
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:48.010
  • - Because there's some things that every parent
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:52.000
  • needs to be firm and hard as it relates to their children.
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:55.210
  • - I agree, I agree.
  • 00:06:55.210 --> 00:06:58.140
  • - But we gotta get a balance in that.
  • 00:06:58.140 --> 00:07:00.240
  • Because there is sometimes
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:03.090
  • over or outlandish overkill, outlandish.
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:09.110
  • You're just going overboard with it.
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:11.220
  • Where the apostle Paul gets into the next scripture
  • 00:07:11.220 --> 00:07:15.040
  • and he charges the fathers, what did he say?
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:18.290
  • - "Do not provoke your children
  • 00:07:18.290 --> 00:07:20.180
  • "lest they become discouraged."
  • 00:07:20.180 --> 00:07:22.170
  • - Yeah, yeah, father's don't provoke your children.
  • 00:07:22.170 --> 00:07:25.010
  • So he talked to the wife, he talked to the husband,
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:27.130
  • he talked to the children, now he's talking to the father.
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:30.050
  • What did he say about mother's?
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:32.060
  • He didn't say a thing about the mother's
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:34.230
  • because he was leaving it to,
  • 00:07:34.230 --> 00:07:37.190
  • at this particular time.
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:39.060
  • We see different things in the scripture concerning mother.
  • 00:07:39.060 --> 00:07:42.130
  • But he was literally placing the ownness
  • 00:07:42.130 --> 00:07:45.200
  • and the responsibility of the development
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:48.160
  • of that child on the father.
  • 00:07:48.160 --> 00:07:51.150
  • You wanna be the head of the house do ya?
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:54.060
  • And if in fact you gonna be the head of the house
  • 00:07:55.080 --> 00:07:57.210
  • it involves also the developmental
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:08:01.120
  • process of the children.
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:03.100
  • - Of the children.
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:04.170
  • - Most men leave the children to the woman.
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:07.260
  • And you should not just be leaving
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:10.040
  • the children to the woman.
  • 00:08:10.040 --> 00:08:12.040
  • That woman should be enforcing the things
  • 00:08:12.140 --> 00:08:14.280
  • that you have placed and put in place.
  • 00:08:14.280 --> 00:08:18.020
  • So the father, because of the weight of the man.
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:21.230
  • The weight and his voice, and his authority,
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:24.240
  • and his position, it's weight is like 500 pounds
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:27.260
  • compared to 25 pounds of weight and honor
  • 00:08:27.260 --> 00:08:31.260
  • that the woman has as it relates
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:34.020
  • to the development at home.
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:35.190
  • Now don't get it twisted because there's a coregency
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:39.110
  • that dwells in the home where she literally
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:42.130
  • has the same juice and authority that I possess.
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:46.130
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:08:46.130 --> 00:08:48.020
  • As it relates to the order, because God is a God of?
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:51.250
  • - [Audience] Order.
  • 00:08:51.250 --> 00:08:52.200
  • - Come on say it to me.
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:53.210
  • Talk to me.
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:54.170
  • God is a God of what?
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:08:56.000
  • - [Audience] Order.
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:56.280
  • - And if it's not in order it's?
  • 00:08:56.280 --> 00:08:58.200
  • - [Audience] Out of order.
  • 00:08:58.200 --> 00:09:00.040
  • - And God is not obligated to participate in it.
  • 00:09:00.040 --> 00:09:02.260
  • So this woman has the same authority
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:05.290
  • that I have but God has given the order that I'm the head.
  • 00:09:05.290 --> 00:09:09.260
  • Because somebody has to make decisions.
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:12.140
  • Now I make all the final decision in my house.
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:15.140
  • But most of them come from her.
  • 00:09:15.140 --> 00:09:17.250
  • But who made the final decision?
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:20.040
  • (Audience responds)
  • 00:09:20.040 --> 00:09:20.280
  • Where did I get it from?
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:21.220
  • (Audience responds)
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:22.200
  • But who made the final decision?
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:23.280
  • I just do what she said.
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:26.190
  • And so if you can get a hold of that,
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:28.260
  • especially in submitting.
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:30.260
  • And that's where that mutual submission
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:33.020
  • has it's buoyancy.
  • 00:09:33.020 --> 00:09:36.090
  • That's where it has it's,
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:40.220
  • that's where it has it's admiration.
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:43.270
  • It has it's adoration.
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:45.270
  • That's why it's so beautiful for me to be able
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:49.040
  • to submit to you.
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:50.240
  • And I love it.
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:52.120
  • Again, I just always read
  • 00:09:52.120 --> 00:09:54.250
  • Ephesians 5:22, wives submit.
  • 00:09:55.050 --> 00:09:58.020
  • I don't even understand why I never got 21.
  • 00:09:58.020 --> 00:10:02.280
  • You gotta go by 21 to get to 22.
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:06.150
  • - You saw it.
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:08.000
  • - I don't know if I saw it.
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:10.080
  • I could've seen it. - [DeeDee] Oh yeah you saw it.
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.190
  • - [Pastor] But it was more pronounced.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:14.090
  • - No, you just chose to enjoy 22.
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:18.140
  • - No I didn't.
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:19.110
  • - Yeah just like most men.
  • 00:10:19.110 --> 00:10:20.270
  • We pick and choose what we want to hear.
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:22.290
  • Even like in service, whatever.
  • 00:10:22.290 --> 00:10:25.050
  • You pick and choose what you
  • 00:10:25.050 --> 00:10:27.270
  • decide you gonna embrace.
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:29.220
  • - I would have chosen 21.
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:31.240
  • I just didn't hear 21. - [DeeDee] No, the revelation
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:33.130
  • - [DeeDee] of it wasn't even the same.
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:34.270
  • - [Pastor] I promise you. - [DeeDee] Nobody preached
  • 00:10:34.270 --> 00:10:36.070
  • - [DeeDee] on it like that. - [Pastor] It was my
  • 00:10:36.070 --> 00:10:37.040
  • - [Pastor] father's fault.
  • 00:10:37.040 --> 00:10:38.070
  • He taught 22. - [DeeDee] Yeah I agree.
  • 00:10:38.070 --> 00:10:39.210
  • - He taught 22 more than I ever heard anything else.
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:42.130
  • - I didn't say it wasn't more
  • 00:10:42.260 --> 00:10:44.240
  • than you heard anything else.
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:46.090
  • I believe you heard 22 more.
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:48.100
  • But again, just like even in here.
  • 00:10:48.100 --> 00:10:50.130
  • We've been doing this for what, 20 years.
  • 00:10:50.130 --> 00:10:53.020
  • Over 20 years now.
  • 00:10:53.020 --> 00:10:54.150
  • And you have some people who
  • 00:10:54.150 --> 00:10:56.090
  • still choose to believe that the wife
  • 00:10:56.090 --> 00:10:58.240
  • is the only one that's supposed to submit.
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:01.090
  • - That's sad.
  • 00:11:01.200 --> 00:11:03.030
  • - They pick and they choose what part they wanna hear.
  • 00:11:03.030 --> 00:11:04.120
  • - They're gonna get it in this series.
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:05.220
  • - Yeah, we're their friend,
  • 00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:06.280
  • we believe in that. - [Pastor] Cause it's a
  • 00:11:06.280 --> 00:11:07.250
  • - [Pastor] beautiful thing.
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:09.000
  • - It's a beautiful thing because it
  • 00:11:09.000 --> 00:11:09.280
  • brings such unity and harmony.
  • 00:11:09.280 --> 00:11:10.240
  • - Whoo Jesus yes.
  • 00:11:10.240 --> 00:11:11.220
  • - I mean that's the key to it.
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:13.060
  • It's like if you want unity and harmony in your relationship
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:16.000
  • the key is submission.
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:18.080
  • And when we have mutual submisson
  • 00:11:18.080 --> 00:11:20.060
  • and we can flow together, - [Pastor] Come on now.
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:21.200
  • - [DeeDee] it's like okay, it's on you.
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:23.070
  • You run with it.
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:24.130
  • And when you recognize it's on your wife
  • 00:11:24.130 --> 00:11:26.010
  • to run with it it's like "Baby, it's on you now
  • 00:11:26.010 --> 00:11:28.010
  • "you run with it."
  • 00:11:28.010 --> 00:11:29.060
  • Or even if it's your child it's like--
  • 00:11:29.060 --> 00:11:30.290
  • - [Pastor] Your child.
  • 00:11:30.290 --> 00:11:31.260
  • - Your child has it on them.
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:33.090
  • But we gonna get behind them because they got it,
  • 00:11:33.090 --> 00:11:35.000
  • let's go behind them.
  • 00:11:35.000 --> 00:11:35.270
  • And you push them.
  • 00:11:35.270 --> 00:11:37.020
  • I mean it gives value to a person.
  • 00:11:37.020 --> 00:11:40.270
  • - [Pastor] It adds value to a person.
  • 00:11:40.270 --> 00:11:42.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:11:42.130 --> 00:11:43.270
  • - [Pastor] It gives them juice, it gives them that bravado.
  • 00:11:43.270 --> 00:11:45.180
  • It gives them like "I'm it."
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:47.120
  • - The confidence, it's like if you have a real shy child
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:50.270
  • and somebody real timid.
  • 00:11:50.270 --> 00:11:53.100
  • That means because you're not giving them
  • 00:11:53.100 --> 00:11:54.290
  • the juice they need in the home.
  • 00:11:54.290 --> 00:11:57.070
  • If you're not confident in the home,
  • 00:11:57.070 --> 00:11:58.260
  • surely you're not gonna be confident out here in this world.
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:01.250
  • - And Mary gave Jesus juice - [DeeDee] Gave Him juice.
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:04.120
  • at a very young age.
  • 00:12:04.120 --> 00:12:05.190
  • They come to her like "What are we gonna do?"
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:07.000
  • - They are really like. - [Pastor] I don't know.
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:08.130
  • - [DeeDee] I think that family is the ideal family
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:12.120
  • of the demonstration of or the epitomy of mutual submission.
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:17.050
  • Even though we said in the beginning,
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:19.000
  • how we didn't see like a family who really
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:22.070
  • had it all the way God wanted to have.
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:25.020
  • We saw them as having that mutual submission in place.
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:28.230
  • Because Joseph had to submit to Mary in the beginning.
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:32.180
  • When she went to him and said that she was expecting.
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:36.210
  • And here you are, you're pregnant and your not married.
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:39.160
  • And you don't have, you know,
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:41.060
  • you talking about the Holy Spirit
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:42.260
  • or whatever that impregnated you.
  • 00:12:42.260 --> 00:12:45.010
  • You be looking at her like what?
  • 00:12:45.010 --> 00:12:46.130
  • And so he wanted to put--
  • 00:12:46.130 --> 00:12:47.190
  • - Let you come to me and tell me Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:49.140
  • (Audience and DeeDee laugh)
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:52.120
  • - That's funny.
  • 00:12:54.030 --> 00:12:55.010
  • - I ain't submitting to nothing.
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:56.130
  • That was tremendous submission for him.
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:13:00.280
  • But he had to get a visitation.
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.210
  • - He got a visitation.
  • 00:13:02.210 --> 00:13:03.260
  • He got a visitation but he still had
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:05.250
  • to submit to what was on. - [Pastor] I think I would
  • 00:13:05.250 --> 00:13:07.000
  • - [Pastor] need a visitation too.
  • 00:13:07.000 --> 00:13:08.270
  • - [DeeDee] I understand that.
  • 00:13:10.040 --> 00:13:11.170
  • But he still had to submit to what she was carrying
  • 00:13:11.170 --> 00:13:15.000
  • and what was on her life.
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:16.160
  • He had to follow and protect that.
  • 00:13:16.160 --> 00:13:18.170
  • - [Pastor] And then Jesus hanging out in the temple.
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:20.270
  • - In the temple.
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:22.100
  • When He supposed to be going back with them to--
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:25.220
  • - [Pastor] Jerusalem.
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:26.210
  • - No, they went to Jerusalem.
  • 00:13:26.210 --> 00:13:27.270
  • - [Pastor] Right.
  • 00:13:27.270 --> 00:13:29.060
  • - Every year Mary and them went to Jerusalem
  • 00:13:29.060 --> 00:13:30.260
  • for the festival, the Passover.
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.140
  • I was thinking about when they went back home.
  • 00:13:32.140 --> 00:13:34.240
  • When they went back home they left Jesus in Jerusalem.
  • 00:13:34.240 --> 00:13:38.170
  • - Yeah, how do you leave your son?
  • 00:13:38.170 --> 00:13:39.190
  • - How do you leave your son.
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:40.180
  • You only had one at that time.
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:42.190
  • But they left Him there.
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:45.080
  • And when they went back to go find Him
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:46.230
  • cause they thought He was with His family members.
  • 00:13:46.230 --> 00:13:48.170
  • And when they went back to find Him,
  • 00:13:48.170 --> 00:13:49.270
  • the Bible says that they were astonished.
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:51.280
  • Even the teachers, the elders that were in the synagogue
  • 00:13:51.280 --> 00:13:54.270
  • in the temple they were astonished at looking at Jesus.
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:57.170
  • He was 12 years old.
  • 00:13:57.170 --> 00:13:59.130
  • - Putting it down.
  • 00:13:59.130 --> 00:14:00.290
  • - Putting it down, understanding everything they was saying.
  • 00:14:00.290 --> 00:14:02.270
  • And asking such wise questions.
  • 00:14:02.270 --> 00:14:04.230
  • And the Bible says that Mary went to Jesus
  • 00:14:04.230 --> 00:14:06.290
  • and asked "Okay why did you do this to your parents?
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:09.080
  • "What's up, you know we're anxiously looking for you.
  • 00:14:09.080 --> 00:14:12.230
  • "What's up?"
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:13.210
  • And Jesus looks at them and say
  • 00:14:13.210 --> 00:14:15.090
  • "Why are you looking for me?"
  • 00:14:15.090 --> 00:14:16.160
  • - God dog, my hind punch
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:18.240
  • would have literally (screams).
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:23.010
  • Bishop would have whooped me so bad.
  • 00:14:23.010 --> 00:14:26.180
  • - Oh 12, "Why are you looking for me?"
  • 00:14:26.180 --> 00:14:29.030
  • He said "You know that I'm supposed
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:31.140
  • "to be in my father's house."
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:33.170
  • And the Bible says that they didn't understand
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:35.220
  • what He was saying.
  • 00:14:35.220 --> 00:14:37.080
  • But Mary, she embraced every word and hid it in her heart.
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:40.290
  • - And hid it in her heart.
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:42.120
  • Dig this, there are some things that our children say
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:45.140
  • and because of the environment that we've
  • 00:14:45.140 --> 00:14:47.150
  • come out of we already have a hostile disposition.
  • 00:14:47.150 --> 00:14:51.020
  • And we think it's disrespectful, but they may be
  • 00:14:51.020 --> 00:14:53.210
  • sharing some truths to us about us.
  • 00:14:53.210 --> 00:14:56.160
  • And if we're not so bent on,
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:14:59.070
  • "I'm your father, don't you ever
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:02.060
  • "talk to me like that."
  • 00:15:02.060 --> 00:15:03.150
  • - You think your children don't understand
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:05.010
  • or don't know.
  • 00:15:05.010 --> 00:15:06.060
  • They can tell you more stuff about you
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:08.050
  • than you think they can tell you.
  • 00:15:08.050 --> 00:15:10.110
  • But you don't wanna hear it because
  • 00:15:11.030 --> 00:15:12.180
  • you again, like he said "I'm the father or I'm the mother,
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:16.060
  • "you don't talk to me like that."
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:18.000
  • You should let your child check you sometime.
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:21.040
  • Before somebody else does.
  • 00:15:21.130 --> 00:15:23.020
  • - But not in a respectful manner.
  • 00:15:23.020 --> 00:15:25.060
  • - In a respectful way, of course.
  • 00:15:25.060 --> 00:15:26.210
  • - If you give them that juice and let them know
  • 00:15:26.210 --> 00:15:28.140
  • that you will submit to them as well,
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:31.010
  • because they hold just as much value
  • 00:15:31.010 --> 00:15:34.090
  • in their position as a child as I do as a father.
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:39.230
  • - Brelyn was very vocal again.
  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:43.150
  • Brelyn always said what she wanted to say.
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:45.210
  • Well all my kids, they always were given
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:48.030
  • an opportunity to vocalize whatever.
  • 00:15:48.030 --> 00:15:51.020
  • - And I was one generation away from child abuse man.
  • 00:15:51.020 --> 00:15:53.270
  • And so the way they came up, and that's what.
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:58.270
  • Yes go ahead.
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:00.200
  • - Yeah, but my point is this.
  • 00:16:00.200 --> 00:16:01.290
  • Brelyn, she would say certain things
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:04.100
  • and I would have to go back and say
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:06.060
  • "Okay I didn't mind what you said.
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:09.130
  • "I just didn't like how you said it.
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:12.020
  • "So now let's repeat it again."
  • 00:16:12.020 --> 00:16:14.090
  • And then she would get so upset
  • 00:16:14.090 --> 00:16:16.000
  • because I would make her say it again.
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:17.230
  • And I wouldn't stop until she said it
  • 00:16:17.230 --> 00:16:20.110
  • the way that she was supposed to say it.
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:22.110
  • So I'm not saying let them just be disrespectful
  • 00:16:22.110 --> 00:16:25.170
  • and let them say and do whatever they wanna say and do.
  • 00:16:25.170 --> 00:16:28.250
  • I'm trying to tell you you have to train them
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:31.090
  • to be the way that they will produce out here in this world.
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:34.270
  • Because if you think you're gonna wait
  • 00:16:34.270 --> 00:16:36.210
  • until they get out here when they get 18
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:38.200
  • and 19 going off to college.
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:40.150
  • And expect for them to operate in some things
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:42.210
  • that you thought they should know they not gonna do it.
  • 00:16:42.210 --> 00:16:45.230
  • You gotta teach em that.
  • 00:16:46.010 --> 00:16:47.080
  • You gotta train em how to do that in the home.
  • 00:16:47.080 --> 00:16:49.280
  • - So Brelyn now, is using the very thing
  • 00:16:51.240 --> 00:16:54.290
  • you tried to whoop out of her.
  • 00:16:54.290 --> 00:16:56.170
  • - [DeeDee] Yes.
  • 00:16:56.170 --> 00:16:57.100
  • - To glorify God.
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:58.130
  • - [DeeDee] Totally, cause I did.
  • 00:16:58.130 --> 00:17:00.100
  • I tried to whoop her.
  • 00:17:00.100 --> 00:17:01.230
  • I almost destroyed that.
  • 00:17:02.020 --> 00:17:03.260
  • I mean, because it was like I wanted to win.
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:07.040
  • That pride again.
  • 00:17:07.040 --> 00:17:08.060
  • Mutual submission what?
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:09.160
  • We don't submit to a kid.
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.020
  • Who does that?
  • 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:12.200
  • I mean you know, we never though of that.
  • 00:17:12.270 --> 00:17:14.160
  • - [Pastor] We didn't have that. - [DeeDee] We didn't have that
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:16.020
  • - [DeeDee] understanding. - [Pastor] But yet
  • 00:17:16.020 --> 00:17:17.070
  • - [Pastor] we yield in a lot of areas
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:19.290
  • not even having this revelation.
  • 00:17:19.290 --> 00:17:21.250
  • - [DeeDee] That's true, but it was a little later.
  • 00:17:21.250 --> 00:17:24.150
  • It wasn't from the very beginning.
  • 00:17:24.150 --> 00:17:26.010
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:26.250
  • - So we grew into that.
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:28.030
  • - [Pastor] The parents now have the advantage
  • 00:17:28.030 --> 00:17:31.030
  • to go ahead and start incorporating it,
  • 00:17:31.030 --> 00:17:33.190
  • especially as young children, young families.
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:36.100
  • Some of you who have grand babies now,
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:39.180
  • you can help your child by sharing
  • 00:17:39.180 --> 00:17:43.190
  • to them the principles that we're talking about.
  • 00:17:43.190 --> 00:17:46.090
  • Because even when Mary didn't know what to do at the wedding
  • 00:17:46.090 --> 00:17:49.190
  • guess who she turned too?
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:51.070
  • And he was a boy.
  • 00:17:51.070 --> 00:17:52.230
  • And Jesus turned to her and said "My time has not come yet."
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:56.170
  • And then she resolved the thing by saying
  • 00:17:56.260 --> 00:17:59.120
  • "Okay, I don't know what to do, but I tell you what,
  • 00:17:59.120 --> 00:18:02.140
  • "whatever he tells you."
  • 00:18:02.140 --> 00:18:04.120
  • That was a level of submission that
  • 00:18:04.220 --> 00:18:06.120
  • she was enforcing right there.
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:08.140
  • What is submission and what is not submission?
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:19.270
  • And then we can close.
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:21.110
  • - And I'll read it.
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.180
  • I read it on last week, but here it is again.
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.160
  • Submission is totally about order.
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:28.050
  • - It's totally about order.
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:29.290
  • - "It's the key to unity and harmony."
  • 00:18:29.290 --> 00:18:32.160
  • - It's they key to unity right, and harmony.
  • 00:18:32.160 --> 00:18:34.280
  • - "In all relationships."
  • 00:18:34.280 --> 00:18:36.110
  • - [Pastor] All of them.
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:37.090
  • - And that's all relationships.
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:39.030
  • That's even on your jobs. - [Pastor] All relationships.
  • 00:18:39.030 --> 00:18:40.140
  • - [DeeDee] Even here in your church.
  • 00:18:40.140 --> 00:18:41.250
  • It's not just in your homes but all relationships.
  • 00:18:41.250 --> 00:18:44.220
  • Even about Jesus, He always talked about having submission.
  • 00:18:44.220 --> 00:18:48.080
  • Submitting to one another.
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:49.260
  • - Here's what I just heard.
  • 00:18:49.260 --> 00:18:51.230
  • God is so good.
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:53.050
  • He never said we work for Him.
  • 00:18:53.050 --> 00:18:55.170
  • - Nope.
  • 00:18:55.270 --> 00:18:57.020
  • - He says we're workers together with him.
  • 00:18:59.240 --> 00:19:03.190
  • Society has this mindset that we work for people.
  • 00:19:05.160 --> 00:19:09.190
  • And if people understood the power in mutual submission.
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:14.290
  • Like nobody works for me around here.
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:17.270
  • Nobody works for me.
  • 00:19:17.270 --> 00:19:19.160
  • We all work together.
  • 00:19:19.270 --> 00:19:21.140
  • We used to say her parents lived with us.
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:24.110
  • They don't live with us.
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:25.270
  • - [Pastor and DeeDee] We live together.
  • 00:19:25.270 --> 00:19:27.230
  • - [Pastor] You see how we level off
  • 00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:30.060
  • and create value across the board?
  • 00:19:30.060 --> 00:19:33.080
  • It's important in every area.
  • 00:19:33.150 --> 00:19:34.260
  • - Because most people think unity means sameness.
  • 00:19:34.260 --> 00:19:38.020
  • Unity does not mean sameness.
  • 00:19:38.020 --> 00:19:40.050
  • Unity is one but I don't have to be the same as you.
  • 00:19:40.050 --> 00:19:43.090
  • I don't have to have the same position as you.
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:45.090
  • - [Pastor] That's a good word. - [DeeDee] I don't have to
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:46.210
  • - [DeeDee] walk in the same things that you walk in.
  • 00:19:46.210 --> 00:19:48.070
  • That's what makes the beauty of the whole relationship.
  • 00:19:48.070 --> 00:19:51.020
  • We can have oneness and still be different.
  • 00:19:51.020 --> 00:19:53.210
  • It's just like our natural body.
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:55.140
  • We flow together in unity. - [Pastor] Yeah we're different.
  • 00:19:55.140 --> 00:19:57.280
  • - [DeeDee] Shut up.
  • 00:19:58.060 --> 00:19:59.280
  • We flow together in unity - [Pastor] I like your part.
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:02.090
  • - [DeeDee] as a body.
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:03.150
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:20:04.100 --> 00:20:06.240
  • But we have different parts.
  • 00:20:09.110 --> 00:20:11.050
  • And I'm done.
  • 00:20:13.010 --> 00:20:14.190
  • Okay wait, this is what submission is not.
  • 00:20:16.030 --> 00:20:19.220
  • - And how in the world are you gonna have relationship
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:21.230
  • if you got the same parts?
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:23.170
  • I would not want you to have my parts.
  • 00:20:27.150 --> 00:20:30.050
  • Jesus.
  • 00:20:30.280 --> 00:20:32.020
  • That ain't Jesus.
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:34.080
  • - I mean it's just like walking with two left feet.
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:36.170
  • - It's like trying to plug a plug in the plug.
  • 00:20:43.020 --> 00:20:45.210
  • That was deep.
  • 00:20:49.090 --> 00:20:50.120
  • - Deep.
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.110
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:53.010
  • - Your turn, come on.
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:56.070
  • It's like,
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:20:57.050
  • 10 thumbs.
  • 00:21:02.120 --> 00:21:03.260
  • I got one up on you, come on.
  • 00:21:07.140 --> 00:21:09.060
  • - You keep going, that's your point.
  • 00:21:11.090 --> 00:21:13.240
  • - It's like Pastor and first gentlemen.
  • 00:21:14.160 --> 00:21:16.240
  • Alright, praise the Lord, come on.
  • 00:21:20.060 --> 00:21:21.210
  • That is not God.
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:24.150
  • So what is unity, I mean what is submission.
  • 00:21:24.150 --> 00:21:28.150
  • - Oh wait, let me finish this.
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:29.210
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:30.270
  • - It's harmony in all relationships.
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:32.030
  • - It's harmony in every relationship.
  • 00:21:32.030 --> 00:21:33.110
  • - It's willingly having the proper attitude
  • 00:21:33.110 --> 00:21:37.190
  • to support--
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:38.240
  • - Willingly having the proper attitude.
  • 00:21:38.240 --> 00:21:40.170
  • - To support, cooperate, surrender,
  • 00:21:40.170 --> 00:21:43.080
  • and to die to self.
  • 00:21:43.080 --> 00:21:45.090
  • - And when you're not trying to have your way,
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:47.040
  • you can willingly have the proper attitude.
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:49.270
  • Cause although I know I'm right,
  • 00:21:50.040 --> 00:21:52.240
  • I can willingly have the proper attitude.
  • 00:21:53.140 --> 00:21:55.210
  • - Totally, totally.
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:56.260
  • - And submit to your wrongness.
  • 00:21:56.260 --> 00:21:58.130
  • - Yup.
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:21:59.070
  • - Than to say
  • 00:21:59.070 --> 00:22:00.150
  • "It's okay baby." - [DeeDee] Vice versa.
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:01.200
  • - [Pastor] It's alright, we'll figure out.
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:03.270
  • - Yup.
  • 00:22:03.270 --> 00:22:05.020
  • - And then later on God will show you.
  • 00:22:05.020 --> 00:22:06.180
  • - I like, just this week we had a situation
  • 00:22:06.180 --> 00:22:09.200
  • that we had to operate in oneness.
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:11.240
  • - [Pastor] What was that?
  • 00:22:11.240 --> 00:22:12.280
  • - You were outside and you were
  • 00:22:12.280 --> 00:22:14.230
  • working on the pool I believe.
  • 00:22:14.230 --> 00:22:16.100
  • - [Pastor] Oh snap.
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:17.150
  • - Yeah, you were working on the pool.
  • 00:22:17.150 --> 00:22:18.240
  • - [Pastor] I'm working on the pool.
  • 00:22:18.240 --> 00:22:19.290
  • - And he was out there sweating hot.
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:21.070
  • And I'm in the house. - [Pastor] It's hot.
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:22.160
  • - [DeeDee] And I'm in the house it was cool.

  • 00:23:04.110 --> 00:23:07.230
  • She said "You lay your hands on it."
  • 00:23:07.230 --> 00:23:10.030

  • - [DeeDee] Yeah that was it.
  • 00:23:21.160 --> 00:23:22.290

  • 00:23:22.290 --> 00:23:24.210
  • "Lay your hands on it."
  • 00:23:24.210 --> 00:23:26.060

  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:23:31.170 --> 00:23:33.290
  • - I said in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:40.110
  • - She said--
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:42.070
  • - I'm out the window, in the window.
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:43.070

  • 00:23:46.130 --> 00:23:48.160
  • I said "God has rebuked devil on our behalf.
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:52.160
  • "So I loose wisdom."
  • 00:23:52.230 --> 00:23:54.120
  • And I said "In Jesus name."
  • 00:23:56.240 --> 00:23:59.010
  • And I walked.
  • 00:23:59.010 --> 00:24:00.110
  • It's like I dropped the mic and turned my back.
  • 00:24:00.110 --> 00:24:02.110
  • Because I knew he thought I was a fool.
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:06.050
  • He was looking at me like "This chick,
  • 00:24:06.130 --> 00:24:08.020
  • "I'm out here sweating.
  • 00:24:08.020 --> 00:24:09.130
  • "Just call the maintenance guy."
  • 00:24:09.130 --> 00:24:11.100
  • I knew that's what he wanted me to do.
  • 00:24:11.100 --> 00:24:12.270
  • - [Pastor] I was gonna spend that money.
  • 00:24:12.270 --> 00:24:14.060
  • - [DeeDee] He was gonna spend that money.
  • 00:24:14.060 --> 00:24:15.270
  • So I turned and I walked.
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:18.140
  • And I wanted to go back and look so bad.
  • 00:24:18.140 --> 00:24:21.120
  • You know how you wanna go and see if it's on?
  • 00:24:21.160 --> 00:24:23.040
  • I said "Nope, I'm not going."
  • 00:24:23.040 --> 00:24:24.190
  • I knew the devil was trying to make me go back and doubt.
  • 00:24:24.190 --> 00:24:26.170
  • I said "I'm not going back, I expect it to come on."
  • 00:24:26.170 --> 00:24:29.130
  • And so when I turned I said "God, I know
  • 00:24:29.130 --> 00:24:31.210
  • "he don't believe but show him for me."
  • 00:24:31.210 --> 00:24:34.100
  • (audience cheers)
  • 00:24:34.100 --> 00:24:36.290
  • You ain't gotta fight for your way.
  • 00:24:36.290 --> 00:24:39.150
  • You ain't gotta fight for your way.
  • 00:24:39.150 --> 00:24:41.080
  • I'm telling you.
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:42.160
  • And I was in there, and I was in the kitchen.
  • 00:24:42.160 --> 00:24:44.150
  • And he came in with this little simple look on his face.
  • 00:24:44.150 --> 00:24:47.130
  • - Why I gotta have a simple look on my face?
  • 00:24:48.120 --> 00:24:50.040
  • - Him and the little simple looks.
  • 00:24:50.040 --> 00:24:51.100
  • He like (laughs).
  • 00:24:51.100 --> 00:24:52.230
  • I said "It came on didn't it?"
  • 00:24:52.230 --> 00:24:54.050
  • He was like "Yeah man, that thing came on."
  • 00:24:54.050 --> 00:24:57.170
  • He was out there for hours!
  • 00:24:57.280 --> 00:25:00.050
  • - But I submitted.
  • 00:25:02.110 --> 00:25:03.230
  • - Yeah you submitted. - [Pastor] I don't know if it
  • 00:25:04.030 --> 00:25:05.030
  • - [Pastor] was willingly.
  • 00:25:05.030 --> 00:25:06.080
  • - You ain't had a proper attitude though!
  • 00:25:06.080 --> 00:25:07.260
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:25:07.260 --> 00:25:09.260
  • - We gotta stop right there baby.
  • 00:25:09.260 --> 00:25:11.060
  • - I know, I know. - [Pastor] We gotta stop.
  • 00:25:11.060 --> 00:25:12.190
  • - [Pastor] Give the Lord a shout would you please?
  • 00:25:12.190 --> 00:25:14.080

  • Come on family we can do this!
  • 00:25:16.140 --> 00:25:18.140

  • 00:25:19.120 --> 00:25:20.200

  • And so when when I teased Dan Wooten about that,
  • 00:25:45.160 --> 00:25:48.020
  • I'm just teasing about that.
  • 00:25:48.140 --> 00:25:50.020
  • My brothers and sisters.
  • 00:25:50.020 --> 00:25:51.180
  • Where's Glenda, Glenda and Gloria take care
  • 00:25:51.180 --> 00:25:54.000
  • of my mother and father just like
  • 00:25:54.000 --> 00:25:56.130
  • now they're the parents.
  • 00:25:56.130 --> 00:25:58.110
  • And my mother should never be subjected to
  • 00:25:58.110 --> 00:26:02.010
  • a senior's home or an old folk home,
  • 00:26:02.010 --> 00:26:04.260
  • where they're just left by themselves
  • 00:26:04.260 --> 00:26:07.270
  • when you have family.
  • 00:26:07.270 --> 00:26:09.220
  • - You know, quite frankly what I've noticed,
  • 00:26:15.230 --> 00:26:17.230
  • DeeDee and I both, is that I haven't really taken
  • 00:26:17.230 --> 00:26:21.220
  • the opportunity and time to extend to you
  • 00:26:21.220 --> 00:26:25.270
  • an invitation and an opportunity
  • 00:26:25.270 --> 00:26:27.280
  • to become our partners.
  • 00:26:27.280 --> 00:26:29.130
  • - Amen.
  • 00:26:29.130 --> 00:26:30.180
  • - I have not done that nearly enough,
  • 00:26:30.180 --> 00:26:33.250
  • and you hear a lot of voices.
  • 00:26:33.250 --> 00:26:35.140
  • You hear a lot of people asking you
  • 00:26:35.140 --> 00:26:37.230
  • to support them, and maybe you have
  • 00:26:37.230 --> 00:26:40.190
  • just kind of mixed us in with all of the other voices,
  • 00:26:40.190 --> 00:26:45.180
  • but you really haven't heard from DeeDee and I
  • 00:26:45.180 --> 00:26:49.020
  • in this particular appeal.
  • 00:26:49.020 --> 00:26:51.070
  • It's not that we have a desire
  • 00:26:51.070 --> 00:26:55.180
  • to ask you for all of these things,
  • 00:26:55.180 --> 00:26:58.250
  • it's a command from the word of God.
  • 00:26:58.250 --> 00:27:01.190
  • As a matter of fact, quite frankly again,
  • 00:27:01.190 --> 00:27:04.010
  • if I didn't have to, I would not,
  • 00:27:04.010 --> 00:27:07.070
  • but the Bible provides for you
  • 00:27:07.070 --> 00:27:09.280
  • in this appeal from me
  • 00:27:09.280 --> 00:27:12.110
  • an opportunity to increase you.
  • 00:27:12.110 --> 00:27:15.020
  • - Amen.
  • 00:27:15.020 --> 00:27:16.110
  • - Now I didn't understand that initially,
  • 00:27:16.110 --> 00:27:17.290
  • when I began to understand the word
  • 00:27:17.290 --> 00:27:20.240
  • concerning giving, but now I do,
  • 00:27:20.240 --> 00:27:23.280
  • and I can promise you it will bless your life
  • 00:27:23.280 --> 00:27:26.170
  • and catapult you in to another dimension.
  • 00:27:26.170 --> 00:27:30.050
  • Now, you simply have to become
  • 00:27:30.050 --> 00:27:32.040
  • a partner of living by faith television.
  • 00:27:32.040 --> 00:27:35.230
  • It's a partner of purpose.
  • 00:27:35.230 --> 00:27:37.060
  • - Amen.
  • 00:27:37.060 --> 00:27:38.030
  • - We have a purpose here,
  • 00:27:38.030 --> 00:27:39.160
  • and DeeDee and I have been fulfilling our purpose,
  • 00:27:39.160 --> 00:27:42.030
  • and guess what?
  • 00:27:42.030 --> 00:27:43.100
  • We've done a lot of it without your help.
  • 00:27:43.100 --> 00:27:45.210
  • But you've been blessed, what we've shared.
  • 00:27:45.210 --> 00:27:48.250
  • So now, it's time to do your part.
  • 00:27:48.250 --> 00:27:51.020
  • But in doing your part, there are so many promises
  • 00:27:51.020 --> 00:27:54.160
  • that will come along with your doing so.
  • 00:27:54.160 --> 00:27:57.210
  • We want to thank you in advance
  • 00:27:57.210 --> 00:27:59.180
  • for partnering with us, and becoming a partner of purpose.
