  • what I went through,
  • 00:00:01.290 --> 00:00:02.000
  • I would have definitely avoided that.
  • 00:00:02.240 --> 00:00:04.180
  • But look at all of the good that has come out of
  • 00:00:04.180 --> 00:00:09.180
  • knowing from the beginning,
  • 00:00:09.280 --> 00:00:11.140
  • I was going to come through it.
  • 00:00:11.140 --> 00:00:12.290
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:00:12.290 --> 00:00:14.060
  • - God, knowing from the very beginning
  • 00:00:14.060 --> 00:00:16.030
  • that, "That's my boy."
  • 00:00:16.030 --> 00:00:17.120
  • "Whatever the devil tries on him,
  • 00:00:17.120 --> 00:00:19.210
  • I know he's going to get through this thing.
  • 00:00:20.150 --> 00:00:22.160
  • And then we're going to come out of it
  • 00:00:22.160 --> 00:00:24.180
  • with something."
  • 00:00:24.180 --> 00:00:25.210
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:00:25.210 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • - And is going to connect and going to be healed.
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:04.220
  • This was just a pivot in the turn of a ministry.
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:09.220
  • When I came here, I saw,
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:11.270
  • "The Year of Realized Dream."
  • 00:01:11.270 --> 00:01:13.070
  • How apropos.
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:15.020
  • How apropos.
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:16.120
  • And your ministry of faith,
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:19.180
  • you are an example and you are the first fruit
  • 00:01:19.180 --> 00:01:22.100
  • of this ministry.
  • 00:01:22.100 --> 00:01:23.110
  • - [Congregation] Yeah!
  • 00:01:23.110 --> 00:01:24.140
  • this is what is, that is as far as my knowledge
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:29.070
  • is concerned.
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:30.180
  • But beyond my knowledge is God.
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:32.280
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:01:32.280 --> 00:01:34.050
  • - And so I always look beyond what I know,
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:36.280
  • because I know ...
  • 00:01:36.280 --> 00:01:38.180
  • Example, let me give you an example.
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:41.190
  • In the I think early 1900s, late 1800s,
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:46.190
  • smallpox, not smallpox, but malaria
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:51.210
  • was killing a lot of people.
  • 00:01:51.210 --> 00:01:54.060
  • And the great minds of that time
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:56.250
  • didn't know what it was,
  • 00:01:56.250 --> 00:01:57.280
  • and so they postulated many things.
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:02:01.040
  • Today, even a high-schooler know
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:04.220
  • that malaria is caused by the Anopheles mosquito,
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:09.100
  • a high-schooler.
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:10.170
  • But in that time, it's not that the answer
  • 00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:13.060
  • wasn't there --
  • 00:02:13.060 --> 00:02:14.100
  • - I need to go back to high school.
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.040
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:02:15.040 --> 00:02:18.010
  • Even in high school, I didn't know that.
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:26.020
  • - Okay. It's common knowledge.
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.200
  • It's caused by a mosquito.
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:29.040
  • It's common knowledge.
  • 00:02:29.040 --> 00:02:30.020
  • But in those days, in that time,
  • 00:02:30.020 --> 00:02:31.260
  • the great minds of then didn't know that.
  • 00:02:31.260 --> 00:02:34.130
  • - Right.
  • 00:02:34.130 --> 00:02:35.110
  • - It is the same thing today.
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:36.110
  • When we saw you and realized,
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:39.120
  • "This man cannot even move his finger
  • 00:02:39.120 --> 00:02:43.090
  • to shake my hand."
  • 00:02:43.090 --> 00:02:45.060
  • And we went outside and were talking.
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.210
  • And one of the doctors said,
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:51.050
  • "This, I have never seen this."
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:53.240
  • "And I am not quite sure if --
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:55.140
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:56.190
  • - "He's going to regain any strength."
  • 00:02:56.190 --> 00:02:59.210
  • And usually, you do not want to tell a patient,
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:04.160
  • give a patient hope.
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:05.090
  • - Um-hmm. Why?
  • 00:03:05.090 --> 00:03:06.140
  • - You don't want to give them hope
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:09.020
  • lest you fall short of the hope
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:11.090
  • and then you create mistrust.
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:13.000
  • - So doctors, are you trained to not give hope?
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:17.080
  • - Well, physicians are trained ...
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:18.200
  • No, not to give hope, but to tell the truth
  • 00:03:18.200 --> 00:03:21.220
  • to where you are,
  • 00:03:21.220 --> 00:03:23.190
  • to the extent of what you know,
  • 00:03:23.190 --> 00:03:25.190
  • and don't go beyond what you know.
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:27.160
  • - Right.
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:28.150
  • - Don't go beyond what you know
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:30.110
  • because --
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:31.080
  • - To prevent lawsuits or --
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:32.150
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:33.090
  • To prevent the mistrust.
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:36.180
  • - Okay.
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:37.250
  • - And to prevent being a liar, so to speak.
  • 00:03:37.250 --> 00:03:39.230
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:41.050
  • - And so you speak to your knowledge.
  • 00:03:41.050 --> 00:03:43.010
  • That is the limitation of education.
  • 00:03:43.010 --> 00:03:44.230
  • - Okay.
  • 00:03:44.230 --> 00:03:45.130
  • - I always say,
  • 00:03:45.130 --> 00:03:47.010
  • "Education, the more educated I become
  • 00:03:47.010 --> 00:03:49.160
  • is the less I realize that I know."
  • 00:03:49.160 --> 00:03:52.010
  • It just makes you realize how little you know.
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:55.130
  • But the limitations of the knowledge
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:04:00.150
  • allows me to rely upon God.
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:05.270
  • - And so --
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:07.010
  • - Because he has the answers.
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:08.070
  • - But, and coming into the room now,
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:10.130
  • again, there ...
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.240
  • (laughs)
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.010
  • Lord Jesus.
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:14.200
  • I wonder, I wonder.
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:17.090
  • I'm trying to be as careful as possible.
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:21.080
  • Okay, okay.
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.090
  • I'll try to just keep it to ...
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:24.110
  • I almost didn't want certain doctors
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:34.100
  • to come by my ward.
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:36.100
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:38.020
  • - But when you would walk in,
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:40.210
  • I would always want to just hear from you
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:46.040
  • concerning the report --
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:47.230
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:49.240
  • - That was specifically my case.
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:54.100
  • - Right.
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.240
  • - What? Help me.
  • 00:04:56.250 --> 00:04:58.070
  • - I mean, you just got to be direct.
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:04:59.250
  • It's okay.
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:00.250
  • - I don't know how to be direct.
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:02.010
  • - But you knew it was a different --
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:03.250
  • - I knew it was different.
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:04.290
  • - As far as his faith was concerned,
  • 00:05:04.290 --> 00:05:06.120
  • because even though they would say certain things,
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:08.270
  • you knew they were going by what was written.
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:10.270
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:11.210
  • - What was in the book.
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:12.280
  • That's what they have been trained to do.
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:13.260
  • - But how was he not --
  • 00:05:13.260 --> 00:05:14.270
  • - Because of his faith.
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:16.050
  • - Coming in with the same --
  • 00:05:16.050 --> 00:05:17.180
  • - Because of what he believed.
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:19.120
  • He saw something different from
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:21.010
  • where you came from.
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:22.030
  • He saw your reports,
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.170
  • and he was looking like,
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:24.250
  • "Okay. Now, if God did this,"
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.060
  • he understood, because he tells us like
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:27.240
  • God was going to complete this.
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.060
  • - And I think what you are thinking or asking
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:31.160
  • is why, why --
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:35.000
  • Yeah.
  • 00:05:35.000 --> 00:05:36.050
  • - Why am I coming in with that report?
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:37.200
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:05:37.200 --> 00:05:38.130
  • - Right.
  • 00:05:38.130 --> 00:05:39.110
  • - Because, now, my own niece --
  • 00:05:39.110 --> 00:05:40.290
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:05:40.290 --> 00:05:42.160
  • - Who has ...
  • 00:05:42.160 --> 00:05:43.080
  • What is she? ER?
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:45.110
  • - Emergency room.
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:46.160
  • - Emergency room.
  • 00:05:46.160 --> 00:05:47.170
  • A doctor pulled her aside.
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:51.020
  • - The first doctor.
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:51.260
  • - The first doctor.
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:52.160
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:53.240
  • - And said to her,
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:57.030
  • "You need to go and prepare his family."
  • 00:05:59.210 --> 00:06:01.260
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:03.100
  • - And she said,
  • 00:06:04.160 --> 00:06:06.040
  • "I'm not going to go and do that."
  • 00:06:06.040 --> 00:06:07.130
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:06:07.130 --> 00:06:09.180
  • - And he said,
  • 00:06:10.060 --> 00:06:12.040
  • "Do you see what I see?"
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:13.140
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:14.260
  • - She said, "Yes, sir. I do."
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:16.100
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:17.170
  • - "But I can't go out there and tell
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:19.180
  • my aunt and uncle that."
  • 00:06:19.180 --> 00:06:21.290
  • Now, at that particular time,
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:23.190
  • they told me I was conscious,
  • 00:06:23.190 --> 00:06:24.220
  • but I don't remember any of it.
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:26.050
  • - Right.
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:27.170
  • - And then I heard there are certain medications that
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:31.260
  • are designed to make you forget.
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:33.140
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:06:33.140 --> 00:06:35.010
  • - I would like to have some of that at home.
  • 00:06:36.280 --> 00:06:38.160
  • (laughs)
  • 00:06:38.160 --> 00:06:39.250
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:06:39.250 --> 00:06:41.070
  • - I think you're still on it
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:42.190
  • because you've been forgetting.
  • 00:06:42.190 --> 00:06:45.040
  • - Give me a handkerchief to give to Doc,
  • 00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:47.230
  • because these lights are warm.
  • 00:06:47.230 --> 00:06:49.270
  • (Doctor laughs)
  • 00:06:49.270 --> 00:06:52.080
  • - And she told me ...
  • 00:06:52.190 --> 00:06:54.110
  • Give to Doctor.
  • 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:55.090
  • You know what she told me, Doc?
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:58.000
  • She said, "Uncle Mike, I need to tell you something."
  • 00:06:58.000 --> 00:07:02.010
  • I said, "Yeah, baby."
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:03.260
  • "What is it?"
  • 00:07:03.260 --> 00:07:05.130
  • She said, "Your faith has provided hope
  • 00:07:05.190 --> 00:07:08.220
  • for other patients for me."
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.280
  • - Amen.
  • 00:07:10.280 --> 00:07:12.160
  • - I said, "What are you talking about?"
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:14.110
  • She said, "In any other situation,"
  • 00:07:14.110 --> 00:07:17.250
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:19.090
  • - "seeing what I saw from the reports that I got,
  • 00:07:19.090 --> 00:07:22.260
  • I would have told the family exactly
  • 00:07:22.260 --> 00:07:25.260
  • what the doctor wanted me to tell you."
  • 00:07:25.260 --> 00:07:28.150
  • "Because, ordinarily, a man doesn't live
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:32.150
  • with a report that you had.
  • 00:07:32.150 --> 00:07:35.180
  • - And then I think sometimes,
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:37.230
  • what fascinates me most,
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:40.030
  • I have never seen ...
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:42.000
  • When I talked to Sophia
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:44.240
  • and I got some of the numbers and I calculate,
  • 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:49.010
  • because we do everything,
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:50.060
  • we calculate everything, and make decisions
  • 00:07:50.060 --> 00:07:51.280
  • based upon numbers.
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:53.280
  • And there is, in your situation and in ICU,
  • 00:07:53.280 --> 00:07:58.010
  • there is a number that you calculate
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.290
  • to figure out what the percent
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:02.090
  • the survival rate would be,
  • 00:08:02.090 --> 00:08:03.190
  • the mortality rate would be.
  • 00:08:03.190 --> 00:08:04.250
  • - Wow.
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:06.010
  • - And it's called the oxygen index.
  • 00:08:06.010 --> 00:08:07.220
  • And someone's oxygen index, around 30 is high.
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:12.010
  • 35 is high, and the mortality rate is about
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:14.240
  • 50 to 60 percent.
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:16.240
  • As it gets higher,
  • 00:08:16.240 --> 00:08:18.160
  • the mortality rate of course gets higher.
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:20.240
  • And your oxygen index was close to 60.
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:25.240
  • And I have never seen.
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:28.130
  • I have done research.
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:29.100
  • I have never seen
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:30.290
  • anyone, if your oxygen index reached 40,
  • 00:08:30.290 --> 00:08:34.010
  • we would pull you out of the study,
  • 00:08:34.010 --> 00:08:38.010
  • because the chances of you living is very slim.
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:42.240
  • And with an oxygen index of 60,
  • 00:08:42.240 --> 00:08:45.080
  • - [Member] Amen.
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:46.120
  • - And alive, and that is absolutely.
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:49.040
  • - Wait a minute, wait a minute.
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.100
  • I'll be right back, I'll be right back.
  • 00:08:50.100 --> 00:08:51.170
  • (laughs)
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:52.220
  • [congregation cheer and applause]
  • 00:08:52.220 --> 00:08:54.290
  • Woo!
  • 00:08:56.060 --> 00:08:57.020
  • Yes, sir. Talk to me.
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:58.110
  • - So God, this,
  • 00:08:58.110 --> 00:09:02.020
  • it had to be God.
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:04.260
  • The ECMO was definitely the last resort.
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:08.190
  • And then, still, there is no guarantee
  • 00:09:08.190 --> 00:09:11.140
  • that that would work
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:13.160
  • because your lungs were so bad,
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:15.040
  • they proned you.
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:16.100
  • And usually proned, when they prone someone,
  • 00:09:16.100 --> 00:09:18.160
  • then it's bad.
  • 00:09:18.160 --> 00:09:20.090
  • - When they what?
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:21.080
  • - When they put you upside down.
  • 00:09:21.080 --> 00:09:23.140
  • (Mike coughs loudly)
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:24.130
  • They put the bed upside down.
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:25.110
  • - Oh, I see.
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:26.090
  • I didn't even remember that.
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:27.140
  • - I hope you don't remember that.
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:28.110
  • - You were obviously out.
  • 00:09:28.110 --> 00:09:29.070
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:30.030
  • - Huh?
  • 00:09:30.030 --> 00:09:30.190
  • (laughs)
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:31.160
  • - You were obviously out.
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:32.140
  • - I hope you don't remember it.
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:33.180
  • That would be very uncomfortable.
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:34.220
  • But they put you upside down.
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:36.060
  • That's usually pretty bad.
  • 00:09:36.060 --> 00:09:38.080
  • That's the last.
  • 00:09:38.080 --> 00:09:39.110
  • If that doesn't work,
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:41.070
  • usually when that doesn't work,
  • 00:09:41.070 --> 00:09:42.190
  • usually they will turn you back up and
  • 00:09:42.190 --> 00:09:46.110
  • call it.
  • 00:09:46.280 --> 00:09:48.030
  • And it's just a matter of days.
  • 00:09:48.030 --> 00:09:49.120
  • Usually it's a matter of hours.
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:51.190
  • ECMO is by far the very last resort,
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:55.290
  • and that has no guarantee.
  • 00:09:55.290 --> 00:09:57.160
  • It comes with its inherent risks also.
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:10:00.250
  • So having come through that and sitting here
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:03.290
  • and preaching today, it is not,
  • 00:10:03.290 --> 00:10:07.040
  • it is absolutely not --
  • 00:10:07.040 --> 00:10:09.130
  • I believe God has given us so much of wisdom
  • 00:10:10.120 --> 00:10:15.120
  • and so much of knowledge, human being, mankind.
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:18.180
  • But a miracle is when you draw that line
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:21.060
  • of knowledge and everything is exhausted.
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:25.240
  • Anything beyond that is a miracle.
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:29.140
  • And your pastor being here today,
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:32.030
  • sometimes I don't think we comprehend,
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:35.250
  • Camilla knows me.
  • 00:10:38.040 --> 00:10:39.170
  • I'm controlling myself in everything that I have.
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:42.140
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:43.250
  • - To be dignified.
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:45.040
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:48.100
  • To be dignified.
  • 00:10:56.110 --> 00:10:58.110
  • Because I'm telling you,
  • 00:10:58.110 --> 00:11:00.060
  • there is a day coming,
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:02.090
  • there is a day coming,
  • 00:11:02.090 --> 00:11:04.140
  • that this man is going to ...
  • 00:11:04.140 --> 00:11:06.040
  • He would not even have to touch,
  • 00:11:06.040 --> 00:11:08.290
  • because the spirit of healing ...
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:10.240
  • He rose up and there's a spirit of healing
  • 00:11:10.240 --> 00:11:12.290
  • in this house.
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:14.220
  • There is a spirit of healing in this house.
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:18.060
  • And people are going to come,
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:20.030
  • and just in coming toward the altar,
  • 00:11:20.030 --> 00:11:22.250
  • they're going to get healed.
  • 00:11:22.250 --> 00:11:23.180
  • - [Member] Come on!
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:24.200
  • - There are people who are going
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:25.280
  • to listen to the tape, listen to your story,
  • 00:11:25.280 --> 00:11:29.080
  • and will get the faith.
  • 00:11:29.080 --> 00:11:31.050
  • The faith is going to grab hold --
  • 00:11:31.050 --> 00:11:32.210
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:11:32.210 --> 00:11:34.040
  • - And is going to connect and going to be healed.
  • 00:11:34.040 --> 00:11:36.080
  • This was just a pivot in the turn of a ministry.
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:41.080
  • When I came here, I saw,
  • 00:11:42.130 --> 00:11:43.130
  • "The Year of Realized Dream."
  • 00:11:43.130 --> 00:11:44.230
  • How apropos.
  • 00:11:44.230 --> 00:11:46.180
  • How apropos.
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:47.280
  • And your ministry of faith,
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:51.040
  • you are an example and you are the first fruit
  • 00:11:51.040 --> 00:11:53.260
  • of this ministry.
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:54.270
  • - [Congregation] Yeah!
  • 00:11:54.270 --> 00:11:56.000
  • (congregation cheer and applause)
  • 00:11:56.000 --> 00:11:57.060
  • - You are the first fruit of an example
  • 00:11:57.060 --> 00:11:58.220
  • of this ministry.
  • 00:11:58.220 --> 00:12:00.120
  • And I am excited to be a part of it.
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:02.080
  • (Mike laughs)
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:04.090
  • (congregation cheer and applause)
  • 00:12:04.090 --> 00:12:06.220
  • - [Member] Hallelujah!
  • 00:12:08.200 --> 00:12:10.010
  • - [Mike] Glory to God!
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:22.000
  • - [Congregation] Grateful!
  • 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:24.180
  • - Come on!
  • 00:12:31.170 --> 00:12:32.230
  • Please be seated, please be seated.
  • 00:12:32.230 --> 00:12:34.130
  • Glory to God.
  • 00:12:34.130 --> 00:12:35.110
  • - [Member] Hallelujah!
  • 00:12:35.110 --> 00:12:38.180
  • - I want to show you this
  • 00:12:39.100 --> 00:12:41.240
  • and then we're going to be out of time.
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:46.000
  • But that, Kia, she told me,
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:49.040
  • she said, "For patients to come,
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:54.160
  • I'll be able to tell them that
  • 00:12:54.160 --> 00:12:58.230
  • they can believe God
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:13:00.220
  • in spite of what these reports say."
  • 00:13:00.220 --> 00:13:03.250
  • We're still going to have to talk more, Doc,
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:06.220
  • because you saw what everybody else saw.
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:11.220
  • But you didn't say what they said.
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:16.090
  • Come here, come back for a minute.
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:20.000
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:13:20.000 --> 00:13:22.090
  • Just talk about that a bit.
  • 00:13:24.100 --> 00:13:27.210
  • - Again, because words, and words for me
  • 00:13:27.210 --> 00:13:30.090
  • are very important.
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:32.180
  • If I'm hearing a song and I can't
  • 00:13:34.010 --> 00:13:36.060
  • recognize the words, it would be very difficult
  • 00:13:36.060 --> 00:13:37.180
  • for me to --
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:38.110
  • - [ Mike] That's me.
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:39.080
  • - To even worship with it.
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:40.010
  • - [Mike] That's me.
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:41.090
  • - But from the moment I hear the words,
  • 00:13:41.090 --> 00:13:42.180
  • the words connect.
  • 00:13:42.180 --> 00:13:43.290
  • - [Mike] That's me.
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:45.040
  • - The Word of God is powerful.
  • 00:13:45.280 --> 00:13:49.290
  • When you study the Word of God,
  • 00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:52.240
  • you become the Word.
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:54.270
  • - You become the Word, yeah.
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.200
  • - People go to school to become.
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:59.140
  • You study to become a lawyer.
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:01.190
  • You read, you study, and you speak it,
  • 00:14:01.190 --> 00:14:04.140
  • and you become that.
  • 00:14:04.140 --> 00:14:06.070
  • You go to school to be an engineer.
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:09.100
  • It's all about the words that are written
  • 00:14:09.100 --> 00:14:11.230
  • in those books that you study.
  • 00:14:11.230 --> 00:14:15.130
  • - [Mike] Glory to God.
  • 00:14:15.130 --> 00:14:16.170
  • - You study. It gets inside of you.
  • 00:14:16.170 --> 00:14:17.250
  • Your decisions come out of what you learn,
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:20.140
  • because all of that knowledge is in you
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:22.250
  • and you become that.
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.010
  • You become a physician.
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:25.070
  • You become a doctor.
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.170
  • You become a physiologist.
  • 00:14:26.170 --> 00:14:27.210
  • You become what you study.
  • 00:14:27.210 --> 00:14:29.230
  • And those words, you become that.
  • 00:14:29.230 --> 00:14:33.140
  • And that is why the Word of God is very difficult
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:36.020
  • for me not to speak that when I see it.
  • 00:14:36.020 --> 00:14:39.170
  • And so when I saw,
  • 00:14:39.170 --> 00:14:41.090
  • I know what the clinical,
  • 00:14:41.090 --> 00:14:44.290
  • I know what the physiologic part says.
  • 00:14:44.290 --> 00:14:47.180
  • But again, again, that is the extent
  • 00:14:47.180 --> 00:14:50.010
  • of my knowledge.
  • 00:14:50.010 --> 00:14:51.180
  • That is the extent of what we know
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:53.050
  • of the human body.
  • 00:14:53.050 --> 00:14:54.100
  • That is the extent of what we know
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:55.190
  • of what God has done.
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:57.060
  • God is always beyond that.
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:14:59.270
  • And so, and it's a connection too.
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:02.200
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:04.180
  • - I didn't know you.
  • 00:15:04.290 --> 00:15:06.170
  • I didn't know you.
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:07.240
  • But when I came in, there was a connection
  • 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:10.050
  • between us.
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.160
  • There was a connection.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:13.030
  • You didn't speak.
  • 00:15:13.030 --> 00:15:15.190
  • I tried to shake your hand.
  • 00:15:15.190 --> 00:15:16.250
  • You couldn't move your hands.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.100
  • But there was a connection.
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:20.100
  • I left out of that room,
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:22.090
  • and I gave strict instructions,
  • 00:15:22.090 --> 00:15:24.220
  • from that day on,
  • 00:15:24.220 --> 00:15:26.130
  • what needs to be done.
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:27.190
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:15:27.190 --> 00:15:28.130
  • - What has to be done.
  • 00:15:28.130 --> 00:15:29.040
  • - Come on.
  • 00:15:29.040 --> 00:15:30.010
  • - Because I knew, again --
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:31.070
  • - Thank God you gave those instructions.
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:32.090
  • - Again, you can know the Word
  • 00:15:32.090 --> 00:15:36.050
  • and you can have all of the faith,
  • 00:15:36.050 --> 00:15:38.180
  • but if you don't get up and fight ...
  • 00:15:38.180 --> 00:15:42.010
  • Moses, the battle was won,
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:47.110
  • but Moses fought.
  • 00:15:47.110 --> 00:15:48.160
  • - Yeah, yeah. Right.
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:49.230
  • - The children of God, they had to pick up
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:51.180
  • their swords and fight.
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:53.040
  • - Right, right, right.
  • 00:15:53.040 --> 00:15:54.120
  • - He wins the battles.
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:55.170
  • We have to show up for the fight.
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:57.200
  • And so I really, really believe,
  • 00:15:57.200 --> 00:15:59.120
  • with everything that you have --
  • 00:15:59.120 --> 00:16:01.220
  • - Shout that: He wins the battle!
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:03.110
  • - [Congregation] He wins the battle!
  • 00:16:03.110 --> 00:16:04.270
  • - I show up for the fight!
  • 00:16:04.270 --> 00:16:06.070
  • - [Congregation] I show up for the fight!
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:08.020
  • - You've got to show up.
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:09.070
  • And so, I left strict instructions,
  • 00:16:09.070 --> 00:16:11.250
  • what needs to be done,
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:13.030
  • and you could not fall one iota beneath it.
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:15.260
  • - And they didn't.
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:16.230
  • - And they didn't.
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:18.050
  • (laughs)
  • 00:16:18.050 --> 00:16:19.030
  • And I would check with you,
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:19.280
  • and be clear with me.
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:21.070
  • I would say, "Be honest with me,
  • 00:16:21.070 --> 00:16:22.230
  • because I need to know it all to fix it," right?
  • 00:16:22.230 --> 00:16:25.250
  • But there was a connection set up
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:27.270
  • when we met, Pastor.
  • 00:16:27.270 --> 00:16:30.220
  • And I realize, I didn't even decide it.
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:34.210
  • I didn't even know I was going to join the Church,
  • 00:16:34.210 --> 00:16:37.010
  • really, honestly.
  • 00:16:37.010 --> 00:16:37.230
  • - Wow.
  • 00:16:37.230 --> 00:16:38.200
  • - It was far from my mind.
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:39.130
  • - Wow.
  • 00:16:39.130 --> 00:16:40.110
  • - But I started praying for you.
  • 00:16:40.110 --> 00:16:42.160
  • And the connection grew stronger and stronger.
  • 00:16:42.160 --> 00:16:44.190
  • So when I come into the room,
  • 00:16:44.190 --> 00:16:46.110
  • though I know what it looks like,
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:49.000
  • and though I know the neuropathy was so bad.
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:53.290
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:16:53.290 --> 00:16:54.260
  • - The neuropathy was so bad,
  • 00:16:54.260 --> 00:16:55.200
  • the chances of walking,
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:58.290
  • the chances of being able to run up and down
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:01.170
  • the steps as you did this morning --
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:03.040
  • - Glory to God.
  • 00:17:03.040 --> 00:17:04.090
  • - Was so slim,
  • 00:17:04.090 --> 00:17:06.160
  • because I know patients who have gone through
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:10.210
  • some things and still --
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:12.220
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:17:12.220 --> 00:17:14.000
  • - I know two people who has the neuropathy
  • 00:17:14.000 --> 00:17:15.160
  • that they have not gotten over it yet.
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:17.240
  • - Yeah. My legs, as you know --
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:19.280
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:17:19.280 --> 00:17:21.060
  • - My legs are still, I can't feel my legs here.
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:25.170
  • And I show up for the fight.
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:27.270
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:29.000
  • - Like running up the stairs.
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.110
  • I do things deliberately --
  • 00:17:30.110 --> 00:17:32.270
  • - Right.
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.090
  • - To go against what my body is saying.
  • 00:17:34.090 --> 00:17:38.040
  • - [Doctor] Amen, amen, amen.
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:39.260
  • - No, really.
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:40.200
  • That's the faith walk.
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:41.180
  • We got to show up for the fight.
  • 00:17:41.180 --> 00:17:42.200
  • - Yes, yes.
  • 00:17:42.200 --> 00:17:44.030
  • - And to be perfectly frank with you,
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:48.240
  • it's a frightening position to be in.
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:51.050
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:17:51.050 --> 00:17:52.140
  • - It is!
  • 00:17:52.140 --> 00:17:53.060
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:17:53.060 --> 00:17:55.060
  • - But we take the fear, we take our faith,
  • 00:17:55.060 --> 00:17:59.140
  • and we address every situation,
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:02.020
  • whether it be fear, unbelief or doubt,
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:04.090
  • we address it with faith,
  • 00:18:04.090 --> 00:18:06.050
  • and we overcome it in every situation.
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:08.100
  • - [Doctor] Amen.
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:09.090
  • - Every situation.
  • 00:18:09.090 --> 00:18:10.100
  • So when you would walk in,
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:12.090
  • I was so thrilled to see you.
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:14.100
  • I had this big old ...
  • 00:18:14.100 --> 00:18:16.000
  • What's that I had in my neck?
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:17.080
  • - Tracheotomy.
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:18.150
  • - The tracheotomy, and I couldn't speak.
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:20.070
  • As a matter of fact, they gave me this,
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:23.090
  • I called it my microphone.
  • 00:18:23.090 --> 00:18:24.220
  • - Speaking valve.
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:25.160
  • - Speaking valve.
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:27.090
  • And she would keep it from me.
  • 00:18:27.090 --> 00:18:28.220
  • When she didn't want me to talk,
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:29.240
  • she would take it.
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:30.230
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:33.220
  • But to have you come in that room,
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:42.060
  • that was all orchestrated by God.
  • 00:18:42.060 --> 00:18:44.130
  • - And words are powerful.
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:46.260
  • Once words leave your mouth,
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:50.150
  • they accomplish something,
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.210
  • either in your life or somebody else's life.
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:56.010
  • And so it is very important for me to speak
  • 00:18:56.010 --> 00:18:58.120
  • from what is in my heart.
  • 00:18:58.120 --> 00:19:02.080
  • And so I knew, I knew that this would be the day.
  • 00:19:02.130 --> 00:19:07.130
  • And the neuropathy will get better.
  • 00:19:07.150 --> 00:19:09.140
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:19:09.140 --> 00:19:10.120
  • - It's slowly getting better.
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:11.120
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:19:11.120 --> 00:19:12.090
  • - But it will definitely.
  • 00:19:12.090 --> 00:19:13.210
  • - That's my confession.
  • 00:19:13.210 --> 00:19:14.270
  • I'm getting better every day.
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:16.030
  • - I know people who have that neuropathy
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:17.060
  • cannot do what you did.
  • 00:19:17.060 --> 00:19:19.140
  • They cannot run anymore.
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:21.060
  • They have to change their entire life
  • 00:19:23.190 --> 00:19:25.050
  • because that neuropathy usually stays with you.
  • 00:19:25.050 --> 00:19:28.120
  • And the level of activity that you have
  • 00:19:28.170 --> 00:19:31.270
  • is amazing, just you standing here today.
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:35.110
  • - [Member] Amen.
  • 00:19:35.110 --> 00:19:36.080
  • - [Member] Praise the Lord!
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:37.110
  • (congregation cheer and applause)
  • 00:19:37.110 --> 00:19:39.090
  • - And that's not boasting in and of myself.
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:42.010
  • - [Member] No, that was all God.
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:43.090
  • - That's the glory of God on display.
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:46.190
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.010
  • - You got to know why I'm so pronounced with it
  • 00:19:50.120 --> 00:19:53.280
  • because I'm trying to say something to you
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:56.240
  • and in your situation.
  • 00:19:56.240 --> 00:19:58.150
  • - [Congregation] Amen!
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:19:59.270
  • - Because whatever you are faced with right now,
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:02.090
  • come on, baby girl,
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:04.040
  • whatever you are faced with right now,
  • 00:20:04.040 --> 00:20:07.220
  • God has already fixed it.
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:09.140
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:20:09.140 --> 00:20:10.270
  • - And all we have to do is show up for the fight.
  • 00:20:10.270 --> 00:20:13.120
  • - [Doctor] Amen.
  • 00:20:13.120 --> 00:20:14.230
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.060
  • - [Member] That's good.
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:19.080
  • - And that girl who had the issue for 12 years,
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:25.250
  • she showed up for the fight.
  • 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:28.020
  • - That's right.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:30.070
  • - And her point of contact was,
  • 00:20:30.070 --> 00:20:33.090
  • "If I can touch his garment."
  • 00:20:33.090 --> 00:20:35.150
  • She could have said,
  • 00:20:35.150 --> 00:20:37.120
  • "If I can just see Him walk by."
  • 00:20:37.120 --> 00:20:38.160
  • - [Doctor] Yeah.
  • 00:20:38.160 --> 00:20:39.130
  • - [Member] That's correct.
  • 00:20:39.130 --> 00:20:40.250
  • - Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:20:40.250 --> 00:20:41.270
  • - [Congregation] Yeah.
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:43.030
  • She said, "If I can touch his garment."
  • 00:20:43.030 --> 00:20:45.230
  • But here's what I wanted to point out to you
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:48.240
  • in this passage of the Scripture.
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:50.020
  • (Doctor clears throat)
  • 00:20:50.020 --> 00:20:51.060
  • Jesus says, "Daughter, your faith" --
  • 00:20:51.060 --> 00:20:55.120
  • - [Doctor] Oh, yes.
  • 00:20:55.120 --> 00:20:57.170
  • - He didn't say, "I have made you whole."
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:21:00.250
  • - [Doctor] Amen, amen.
  • 00:21:00.250 --> 00:21:02.070
  • - [Member] It's your faith.
  • 00:21:02.070 --> 00:21:03.140
  • - He says, "Your faith has made you whole."
  • 00:21:03.140 --> 00:21:08.130
  • Now, here's the kicker in all of this, folks.
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:14.050
  • If you will just get to the place
  • 00:21:14.050 --> 00:21:16.160
  • (Doctor chuckles)
  • 00:21:16.160 --> 00:21:17.160
  • where you humble yourselves
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:20.270
  • and allow God to be who he happens to be
  • 00:21:21.200 --> 00:21:25.000
  • in your life and in your situation,
  • 00:21:25.000 --> 00:21:28.140
  • because your pride sometimes wants
  • 00:21:28.140 --> 00:21:31.170
  • to handle things that God has already handled.
  • 00:21:31.170 --> 00:21:34.080
  • - [Doctor] Um-hmm.
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:35.020
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:21:35.020 --> 00:21:35.260
  • (Doctor clears throat)
  • 00:21:35.260 --> 00:21:37.200
  • - I've learned so much out of this whole thing.
  • 00:21:41.110 --> 00:21:43.180
  • - Amen.
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:45.050
  • And, you know, Pastor, this,
  • 00:21:47.070 --> 00:21:48.190
  • your ministry,
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:50.140
  • from what I've gathered and read, reading online,
  • 00:21:50.140 --> 00:21:54.190
  • it's a ministry built on faith, spirit of faith.
  • 00:21:54.190 --> 00:21:59.130
  • And you end up being an example.
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:04.150
  • - [Mike] An example of it.
  • 00:22:04.250 --> 00:22:06.070
  • - An example of the foundation of this ministry.
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:11.070
  • And so you have stopped the mouths of the naysayers.
  • 00:22:11.280 --> 00:22:16.050
  • - [Member] Yeah, come on.
  • 00:22:16.050 --> 00:22:18.060
  • - That's good stuff, Doc.
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:21.070
  • - You have stopped the mouth of the naysayers
  • 00:22:21.070 --> 00:22:23.150
  • and the people who would have wanted
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:25.110
  • to have gone another way.
  • 00:22:25.110 --> 00:22:28.130
  • And there are people who have read the script.
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:33.130
  • Your life is like a scroll.
  • 00:22:33.220 --> 00:22:37.090
  • And what you have gone through and the outcome
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:41.130
  • is greater than
  • 00:22:41.130 --> 00:22:44.020
  • anything that I have seen.
  • 00:22:44.230 --> 00:22:47.080
  • And I am just amazed and I am just blown away
  • 00:22:47.080 --> 00:22:51.190
  • of what God has done.
  • 00:22:51.190 --> 00:22:52.290
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:22:52.290 --> 00:22:53.190
  • (Pastor laughs)
  • 00:22:53.190 --> 00:22:54.090
  • - I am just --
  • 00:22:54.090 --> 00:22:55.190
  • - I love that laugh.
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:56.250
  • (congregation laughter and applause)
  • 00:22:56.250 --> 00:23:00.030
  • - You defied, God defied everything.
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:07.030
  • No one, I have never seen ...
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:09.210
  • And I told the camera crew,
  • 00:23:09.210 --> 00:23:12.290
  • at least I can say before I die,
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:16.000
  • I have met someone who lived
  • 00:23:16.000 --> 00:23:17.270
  • with an oxygen index
  • 00:23:17.270 --> 00:23:19.260
  • greater --
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:21.170
  • - [Member] Glory to God!
  • 00:23:23.190 --> 00:23:25.080
  • (congregation cheer and applause)
  • 00:23:25.150 --> 00:23:28.280
  • - [Member] God is good!
  • 00:23:32.120 --> 00:23:33.020
  • - God is good.
  • 00:23:33.020 --> 00:23:33.270
  • - [Member] He is great!
  • 00:23:33.270 --> 00:23:34.230
  • - [Member] Hallelujah!
  • 00:23:34.230 --> 00:23:36.000
  • - [Member] Amen!
  • 00:23:36.000 --> 00:23:36.240
  • - [Doctor] God is good.
  • 00:23:36.240 --> 00:23:37.140
  • - God is good.
  • 00:23:37.140 --> 00:23:39.020
  • God is so good.
  • 00:23:39.020 --> 00:23:41.110
  • - Because you should not have been alive.
  • 00:23:41.110 --> 00:23:43.170
  • - [Member] Praise the Lord.
  • 00:23:43.170 --> 00:23:45.050
  • - You should not have been alive.
  • 00:23:45.050 --> 00:23:47.070
  • - [Member] My God!
  • 00:23:48.240 --> 00:23:50.110
  • - [Member] Hallelujah!
  • 00:23:50.110 --> 00:23:51.150
  • - To be standing here and speaking is
  • 00:23:51.150 --> 00:23:54.060
  • (exhales loudly)
  • 00:23:55.230 --> 00:23:57.250
  • I don't think sometimes we realize.
  • 00:24:00.030 --> 00:24:03.050
  • We take it for granted, I think.
  • 00:24:03.150 --> 00:24:05.190
  • And sometimes, we have to, you have to tell people
  • 00:24:07.090 --> 00:24:10.220
  • the truth.
  • 00:24:10.220 --> 00:24:12.130
  • It is not just, "I got sick."
  • 00:24:12.280 --> 00:24:15.200
  • "I went to the hospital."
  • 00:24:15.200 --> 00:24:17.100
  • "And then I just came back."
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:18.150
  • It was nothing, nothing like that.
  • 00:24:18.150 --> 00:24:22.280
  • It was not close to that at all.
  • 00:24:22.280 --> 00:24:26.160
  • This man, whatever, I'm telling you,
  • 00:24:28.200 --> 00:24:31.010
  • the enemy was after this ministry.
  • 00:24:31.010 --> 00:24:35.090
  • And you know what I see too?
  • 00:24:35.280 --> 00:24:38.140
  • May I, Pastor?
  • 00:24:41.050 --> 00:24:41.280
  • - Yes, absolutely.
  • 00:24:41.280 --> 00:24:43.280
  • (sniffs)
  • 00:24:45.270 --> 00:24:46.210
  • - [Member] Hallelujah!
  • 00:24:46.210 --> 00:24:47.280
  • - If you would take this man out,
  • 00:24:47.280 --> 00:24:51.150
  • the realized dreams in a lot of people's heart
  • 00:24:52.060 --> 00:24:55.090
  • would be stopped.
  • 00:24:55.090 --> 00:24:57.060
  • And it is beyond him.
  • 00:24:58.230 --> 00:25:01.060
  • It is what comes out of his mouth
  • 00:25:01.270 --> 00:25:03.150
  • and what he's speaking to the masses and the crowd,
  • 00:25:03.150 --> 00:25:06.230
  • the enemy wants to stop.
  • 00:25:06.230 --> 00:25:08.200
  • And it is because God so loved the world
  • 00:25:10.090 --> 00:25:13.000
  • and He so loves us,
  • 00:25:13.000 --> 00:25:14.200
  • and He loves you and I,
  • 00:25:14.200 --> 00:25:17.030
  • because ultimately, that is what the enemy
  • 00:25:17.170 --> 00:25:19.220
  • wants to stop this work in the earth, to stop it.
  • 00:25:19.220 --> 00:25:24.050
  • And I am absolutely overcome when I sit down
  • 00:25:25.190 --> 00:25:28.280
  • and when I think of it,
  • 00:25:28.280 --> 00:25:30.250
  • of what, of where you were.
  • 00:25:31.150 --> 00:25:34.080
  • There was nothing else that we human beings
  • 00:25:34.210 --> 00:25:37.100
  • could do, hospitals could do.
  • 00:25:37.100 --> 00:25:38.170
  • Nothing. It was done.
  • 00:25:38.170 --> 00:25:40.150
  • He was within hours of death,
  • 00:25:42.100 --> 00:25:46.100
  • hours of the grave,
  • 00:25:46.100 --> 00:25:49.010
  • and standing here today.
  • 00:25:49.290 --> 00:25:51.260
  • And you know what?
  • 00:25:51.260 --> 00:25:53.010
  • He's standing telling us about faith.
  • 00:25:53.010 --> 00:25:55.260
  • And when he talks about faith,
  • 00:25:56.050 --> 00:25:58.260
  • it is no longer about,
  • 00:25:58.260 --> 00:26:01.020
  • he is not just speaking.
  • 00:26:01.020 --> 00:26:02.200
  • He's teaching from the belly,
  • 00:26:02.200 --> 00:26:04.060
  • because he just came through a faith fight.
  • 00:26:04.060 --> 00:26:08.090
  • And we really, really have to listen
  • 00:26:09.070 --> 00:26:12.150
  • because we are fortunate,
  • 00:26:12.150 --> 00:26:14.200
  • we are blessed.
  • 00:26:14.200 --> 00:26:16.090
  • - [Member] Yes!
  • 00:26:16.090 --> 00:26:17.170
  • - We are blessed to see someone on a deathbed
  • 00:26:17.170 --> 00:26:21.060
  • rise up and teach us in return.
  • 00:26:21.060 --> 00:26:24.290
  • - [Member] Hallelujah!
  • 00:26:24.290 --> 00:26:26.100
  • - I am telling you.
  • 00:26:26.100 --> 00:26:27.200
