  • The fruit that I have in my life
  • 00:00:01.290 --> 00:00:04.150
  • is a byproduct of the system
  • 00:00:04.150 --> 00:00:06.280
  • that I'm proposing, presenting
  • 00:00:06.280 --> 00:00:09.180
  • introducing to you to acquaint you with
  • 00:00:09.180 --> 00:00:13.150
  • to become a part of participating
  • 00:00:13.150 --> 00:00:16.100
  • and cooperating with this system
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:20.170
  • so you can change every area of lack to abundance
  • 00:00:20.170 --> 00:00:24.220
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • that's a transition to making him Lord.
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.210
  • For some of you he's just savior
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:07.210
  • but we gotta go deeper this year.
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:10.110
  • You gotta make him Lord.
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:12.110
  • You gotta make him Lord.
  • 00:01:13.180 --> 00:01:15.180
  • Because either he'll become Lord now
  • 00:01:16.220 --> 00:01:19.220
  • or he will become Lord later.
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:23.220
  • "But it sound like you was getting up a trip right now."
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:28.290
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:01:28.290 --> 00:01:31.110
  • Everybody wanna go to Heaven
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:34.100
  • but nobody wanna die yet.
  • 00:01:34.100 --> 00:01:36.120
  • What I'm preparing for
  • 00:01:39.120 --> 00:01:41.230
  • see I ain't interested giving my sister no money.
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:44.160
  • I'm a have an Enoch encounter.
  • 00:01:44.160 --> 00:01:46.240
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:50.140
  • I wanna be walking along
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:52.160
  • hanging with somebody and then.
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:56.090
  • What you don't wanna be is somebody who's saying,
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:59.180
  • "Where'd he go?"
  • 00:01:59.180 --> 00:02:01.070
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:04.180
  • How many of y'all going up on the first trip?
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:18.160
  • You don't wanna go on the second
  • 00:02:18.160 --> 00:02:20.210
  • and that's another lesson.
  • 00:02:20.210 --> 00:02:22.260
  • Okay, so this system
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:27.040
  • that I've been trying to discuss with you
  • 00:02:28.270 --> 00:02:32.130
  • will eventually hit.
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:34.030
  • I mean and hit hard and hit forever.
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:38.230
  • Now this Revelations
  • 00:02:40.060 --> 00:02:42.200
  • I think it's 11:10.
  • 00:02:42.200 --> 00:02:44.060
  • We'll work our way to 15.
  • 00:02:44.060 --> 00:02:46.080
  • Those who dwell on Earth will rejoice over them
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:50.260
  • make marry and send gifts to one another
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:54.170
  • because these two prophets tormented
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:57.130
  • those who dwell on Earth.
  • 00:02:57.130 --> 00:02:59.080
  • Okay, I see the account.
  • 00:02:59.080 --> 00:03:01.010
  • Now after three and a half days
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:03.130
  • the breath of life from God entered them.
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:06.270
  • There's gone be a war that's gone go on.
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:09.130
  • These are symbolic of those two systems
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:12.280
  • that you see that's gone go at it.
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:15.100
  • They stood on their feet
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:16.190
  • and great fear fell on those who saw them.
  • 00:03:16.190 --> 00:03:20.040
  • Watch this.
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.060
  • They heard a loud voice
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:23.080
  • and see this is what we're getting to.
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:25.010
  • They heard a loud voice from Heaven saying,
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:27.120
  • "Come up here", good God from Zion.
  • 00:03:27.120 --> 00:03:29.240
  • Come up hither, and they ascended to Heaven in a cloud.
  • 00:03:29.240 --> 00:03:33.220
  • Their enemies also people in another system
  • 00:03:33.220 --> 00:03:37.210
  • they saw it and heard it.
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:39.100
  • In the same hour there was a great earthquake
  • 00:03:39.100 --> 00:03:42.100
  • and a 10th of the city fell.
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:44.200
  • There's very great relevance
  • 00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:47.120
  • and significance to that 10th there
  • 00:03:47.120 --> 00:03:49.200
  • but that's not my point so I'm not gone go into that.
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:53.270
  • In the earthquake 7.000 people were what?
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:57.100
  • That's why you wanna go up on the first trip.
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:04:00.080
  • You don't wanna have anything to do with this.
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:02.050
  • I can't talk about that now
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.120
  • because this is not my subject matter.
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:05.270
  • The rest were afraid and gave glory to God of Heaven.
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:09.230
  • They were afraid.
  • 00:04:09.230 --> 00:04:10.260
  • The second woe is passed.
  • 00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:13.000
  • Behold now the third woe is coming quickly.
  • 00:04:13.000 --> 00:04:16.280
  • Watch this.
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:17.260
  • The seventh angel did sounded,
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:21.040
  • sounded, oh, my god.
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:22.270
  • Okay, okay, okay.
  • 00:04:22.270 --> 00:04:25.030
  • So how can I do this?
  • 00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:27.090
  • How can I do this?
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.220
  • How can I do it?
  • 00:04:28.220 --> 00:04:29.290
  • I heard it give me the definition of system
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:32.240
  • on this screen and hold there
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:35.160
  • that same scripture right there.
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:37.160
  • Got it.
  • 00:04:37.160 --> 00:04:38.140
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:40.290
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:43.060
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:04:43.060 --> 00:04:44.280
  • Stay with me here.
  • 00:04:44.280 --> 00:04:46.020
  • Hold that on that screen
  • 00:04:46.020 --> 00:04:47.230
  • and let's go along with this screen.
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:49.090
  • Are you still here?
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:50.260
  • Come on this is a learning institute, man.
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:53.210
  • I wanna get you to understand some things
  • 00:04:53.210 --> 00:04:56.020
  • that's why I started with that first scripture
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:04:58.110
  • understanding is.
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:04:59.180
  • Because if you can get this you'll win in life
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:03.050
  • and this is a money back guarantee.
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:06.270
  • If you can get what I'm saying to you today
  • 00:05:06.270 --> 00:05:10.060
  • don't you dare sit there like you're disinterested
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:13.090
  • especially if your money funny.
  • 00:05:13.090 --> 00:05:15.260
  • Your marriage messed up
  • 00:05:17.230 --> 00:05:19.100
  • and you gone sit there, "I wish he'll hurry up."
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:23.000
  • You should wanna sit here until I'm finished
  • 00:05:23.000 --> 00:05:26.230
  • especially if there's any deficit in your life.
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:30.160
  • Okay, here we go.
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.140
  • There were a loud voice in Heaven saying
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:35.180
  • what did he say
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.120
  • "The systems
  • 00:05:37.120 --> 00:05:38.120
  • "or the kingdoms of this world have become."
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:43.250
  • They are not right now across the board
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:50.140
  • but at this point in the game they would have come.
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:57.280
  • They would have become the kingdoms of our God.
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:06:02.120
  • Because every system, listen to me carefully
  • 00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:05.190
  • every system that exists is gonna have to
  • 00:06:05.190 --> 00:06:09.170
  • bow its knee to the system I'm proposing to you now.
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:13.220
  • That's why you need to hand over
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:18.240
  • some of those decisions that you are making.
  • 00:06:19.280 --> 00:06:24.050
  • You need to just give them to me now
  • 00:06:24.050 --> 00:06:26.270
  • because either you fall on the rock the scripture says
  • 00:06:26.270 --> 00:06:30.180
  • or the rock will fall on you and crush you.
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:34.050
  • Either the scripture in Philippians says
  • 00:06:36.060 --> 00:06:38.250
  • every knee should bow
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:40.200
  • but Thessalonians says every knee shall bow.
  • 00:06:41.260 --> 00:06:45.160
  • Which leads me to believe that you should or you shall.
  • 00:06:46.280 --> 00:06:50.290
  • You gone do it one way or the other.
  • 00:06:53.120 --> 00:06:56.120
  • Okay, every body that's in Hell right now is a believer.
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:07:01.160
  • Did you hear what I just said?
  • 00:07:10.150 --> 00:07:12.090
  • Tell your neighbor what pastor just said.
  • 00:07:12.090 --> 00:07:14.100
  • - [Congregation] Every body in Hell right now is a believer.
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:18.150
  • - There ain't one person that's in Hell
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:24.200
  • that doesn't believe Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:27.180
  • Can we go deeper if you're interested?
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:32.120
  • I'm only going with the goers.
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:37.020
  • If you ain't interested in changing your life
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:39.250
  • this may not be the church for you.
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:41.140
  • If you just wanna keep playing church
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:43.110
  • 17, 18, 19, 20/20 still don't have focus
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:47.160
  • 20/20 focus?
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:53.010
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:07:53.010 --> 00:07:56.130
  • What I've decided is to take
  • 00:07:58.270 --> 00:08:01.100
  • that system on the other side of death
  • 00:08:03.030 --> 00:08:06.230
  • and move it on this side of death
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:09.180
  • so I can start cooperating with that
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:14.030
  • interconnecting network.
  • 00:08:14.030 --> 00:08:16.030
  • See because if you look now at John chapter number eight...
  • 00:08:18.050 --> 00:08:22.100
  • No, Matthew chapter number six verse 10.
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:32.100
  • Oh, boy, Jesus when he was here said,
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:44.210
  • "Your kingdom come.
  • 00:08:45.190 --> 00:08:47.060
  • "Your will be done."
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:51.030
  • Lord, an interconnecting network.
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:56.030
  • "On Earth"
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:08:58.210
  • an interconnecting network.
  • 00:09:00.200 --> 00:09:02.250
  • So we gone have what's in Heaven.
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:07.090
  • You don't have to get to Heaven to experience it.
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:16.160
  • You can have Heaven.
  • 00:09:17.130 --> 00:09:19.030
  • I'm preaching better than.
  • 00:09:21.110 --> 00:09:24.060
  • But gonna have to relinquish your will
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:27.140
  • and what you want and the way you wanna do.
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:33.270
  • "I don't think you need to tithe."
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:36.070
  • There you go.
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:37.080
  • Now it's your way.
  • 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:38.220
  • "I don't think you need to come to church every Sunday."
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:42.160
  • See there you go it's still your way.
  • 00:09:42.160 --> 00:09:45.040
  • "I don't think it should be
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:47.080
  • "anybody's business who marry who.
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:50.130
  • "If a man wanna marry a man,
  • 00:09:50.130 --> 00:09:52.160
  • "then let them marry them."
  • 00:09:52.160 --> 00:09:54.170
  • I should've brought that with me.
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:56.220
  • I'll bring it next week.
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:58.040
  • Don't let me forget.
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:09:59.220
  • Okay.
  • 00:09:59.220 --> 00:10:00.170
  • Now you are complying with another system
  • 00:10:02.220 --> 00:10:06.070
  • that's diametrically opposed to the system
  • 00:10:08.110 --> 00:10:12.000
  • that has an interconnecting network with Heaven.
  • 00:10:12.000 --> 00:10:16.020
  • You don't connect to a system that's not of Heaven,
  • 00:10:16.020 --> 00:10:20.130
  • ladies and gentlemen, and there's no in between
  • 00:10:20.130 --> 00:10:23.200
  • because if it's not Heaven, it's Hell.
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:26.250
  • If it's not love, it's hate.
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:31.150
  • If it's not a friend, it's an enemy.
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:35.180
  • Okay, now I got one other definition to show you
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:40.180
  • and then one other scripture.
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:43.280
  • May I? - Yes.
  • 00:10:43.280 --> 00:10:46.160
  • - All in favor say
  • 00:10:46.160 --> 00:10:48.060
  • - [Congregation] Aye.
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:49.130
  • - Any opposed we don't even care, okay.
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:52.210
  • Go to the next definition of the next system.
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:57.280
  • Some cultures and countries are currently
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:16.080
  • functioning in this system.
  • 00:11:18.070 --> 00:11:20.210
  • I don't particularly agree with it
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:23.190
  • because you gotta deal with evil rulership,
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:27.090
  • dictatorship, tyrants,
  • 00:11:28.140 --> 00:11:30.120
  • people who don't have the heart of God.
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:34.180
  • That's why we can't lead.
  • 00:11:34.180 --> 00:11:37.020
  • Democracy and bureaucracy is good.
  • 00:11:37.020 --> 00:11:40.010
  • Thank you for these United States of America
  • 00:11:40.010 --> 00:11:43.140
  • that will give you freedom of choice.
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:45.270
  • Because if the man over this system
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:49.040
  • decides he don't want you to pray
  • 00:11:49.040 --> 00:11:51.280
  • you're a dead man.
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:53.130
  • However,
  • 00:11:57.000 --> 00:11:57.250
  • What I just say? - However.
  • 00:12:00.040 --> 00:12:02.270
  • - This system is the system
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:05.070
  • that is talked about in Revelations
  • 00:12:06.100 --> 00:12:09.280
  • chapter number 11.
  • 00:12:09.280 --> 00:12:11.130
  • Now,
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:13.070
  • explain to them what a monarch is.
  • 00:12:14.250 --> 00:12:17.200
  • Well, monarchy, monarch same thing
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:22.190
  • a system of government which ruling power is in the hands
  • 00:12:22.190 --> 00:12:26.240
  • - [Congregation] Of one person.
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:30.120
  • - I remember when I first heard like this system.
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:36.140
  • I was working in the government
  • 00:12:37.110 --> 00:12:39.110
  • and the boss at that particular time
  • 00:12:39.110 --> 00:12:42.040
  • was just like this system.
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:43.280
  • He told me he said,
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:45.060
  • "As long as you on this job
  • 00:12:45.060 --> 00:12:47.200
  • "you can turn your little bitty of mind off."
  • 00:12:47.200 --> 00:12:52.050
  • I was about to quit.
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:53.290
  • I was so fired up about to quit,
  • 00:12:53.290 --> 00:12:55.160
  • but then I thought I'm a need this job.
  • 00:12:55.160 --> 00:12:58.240
  • I stayed 'cause I was thinking about going home
  • 00:13:00.290 --> 00:13:03.170
  • telling Dee Dee I quit and what that looked like.
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:08.010
  • I just said, "Yes, sir."
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:10.020
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:13:10.020 --> 00:13:13.150
  • But it was letting me in on a system
  • 00:13:15.010 --> 00:13:18.030
  • that I'm a have to become acquainted with.
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:23.100
  • Jermaine, when this Revelations 11 hit
  • 00:13:28.090 --> 00:13:31.160
  • we ain't gone have any kind of
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:35.230
  • voting polls every four years
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:41.120
  • to see if God still gone be God.
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:44.030
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:47.150
  • Certainly there can be somebody else
  • 00:13:48.270 --> 00:13:50.240
  • who can rule for the next trillion years.
  • 00:13:50.240 --> 00:13:54.150
  • No, it's just gone be God's way
  • 00:13:54.150 --> 00:13:57.050
  • and some of y'all ain't gone like it.
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:01.150
  • But it ain't nothing you can do about it.
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:03.150
  • So he said when you accepted me
  • 00:14:03.150 --> 00:14:06.160
  • if you make me Lord now
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:08.160
  • your input and your opinions
  • 00:14:13.240 --> 00:14:16.140
  • your objective, your views
  • 00:14:16.140 --> 00:14:18.250
  • your decisions about what he said
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:21.260
  • is gone be taken away from you.
  • 00:14:21.260 --> 00:14:24.280
  • You won't have a right to vote on same sex marriage.
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:29.030
  • You won't have a right to vote on
  • 00:14:30.210 --> 00:14:33.060
  • whatever you would like to see.
  • 00:14:33.060 --> 00:14:36.100
  • These rights has messed up a whole lot of y'all
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:40.080
  • from understanding this system.
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:43.050
  • See he's taking from me the right to have
  • 00:14:43.050 --> 00:14:47.120
  • some of the things that I wanna have.
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:50.030
  • Let me just tell you something.
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:51.150
  • Okay, don't judge me.
  • 00:14:51.150 --> 00:14:53.070
  • I'm a show you one last scripture.
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:58.170
  • Show me John chapter number eight verse 23
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:02.040
  • and then I'm a quit.
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:05.120
  • Because there was something
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:08.010
  • that was crying out with me
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:10.010
  • and I ain't feel any peace.
  • 00:15:10.010 --> 00:15:12.010
  • That same umpire lives in me
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:14.130
  • watch this when it comes to other things
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:18.070
  • like withholding what I'm supposed to do.
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:21.180
  • In this monarchy
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:22.280
  • people really aren't even referred to as people.
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:29.180
  • They are referred to as subjects.
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:32.110
  • You can't even become subject to your husband, girl.
  • 00:15:35.230 --> 00:15:39.280
  • Subject yourself.
  • 00:15:42.160 --> 00:15:43.280
  • Lord, I done lost my crowd.
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:47.130
  • That's a part of it.
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:49.030
  • All of the people of England
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:53.270
  • that's who rules right there.
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:56.100
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:01.030
  • this system you need to start becoming acquainted with
  • 00:16:01.030 --> 00:16:05.060
  • and it ain't under any man it's under our God.
  • 00:16:06.110 --> 00:16:09.290
  • He is Lord
  • 00:16:13.070 --> 00:16:14.050
  • and so your decisions about what you gone do
  • 00:16:16.200 --> 00:16:20.260
  • one day will be taken from you.
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:24.040
  • They were supposed to been taken from you
  • 00:16:24.040 --> 00:16:26.200
  • when you received Jesus.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.210
  • But you hold on to some of the decisions
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:31.290
  • that you wanna do 'cause your flesh is in the war.
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:36.090
  • "I don't wanna let it go."
  • 00:16:36.090 --> 00:16:37.180
  • God said, "But it's better for you."
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.120
  • "But I like it."
  • 00:16:39.120 --> 00:16:40.190
  • "But I'm gone tell you something else.
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:42.160
  • "I wanna replace that lack with abundance.
  • 00:16:42.160 --> 00:16:45.280
  • "I wanna place that deficit with overflow."
  • 00:16:45.280 --> 00:16:48.260
  • But you hold (sighing), Lord.
  • 00:16:48.260 --> 00:16:52.210
  • Same people who would lift their hands and sing
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:59.060
  • My life is not my own
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:02.180
  • When God tell you don't be unequally yoked...
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:10.110
  • Okay, I'm gonna give you this scripture
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:16.270
  • and I'm a quit 'cause I'm way beyond my time.
  • 00:17:16.270 --> 00:17:19.190
  • He said to them OMG,
  • 00:17:19.190 --> 00:17:21.120
  • "You are from beneath",
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:26.130
  • Jesus, what?
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:27.130
  • "I am from above.
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:30.200
  • "You are of this world."
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:34.000
  • Go on.
  • 00:17:34.000 --> 00:17:34.250
  • Please listen to me.
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:41.210
  • I said please listen to me.
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:43.140
  • Look up, look up.
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:44.260
  • There's a system that is above
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:48.180
  • and there's a system that's beneath.
  • 00:17:50.090 --> 00:17:53.260
  • Every time you go diametrically oppose
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:57.040
  • to a decision that's above
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:01.160
  • you automatically qualify for beneath.
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:05.170
  • Some of you have not realized
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:09.240
  • you're trying to live in above status
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:12.240
  • making beneath decisions.
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:14.270
  • Everything is governed by systems
  • 00:18:21.160 --> 00:18:24.110
  • so it is with the kingdom of God.
  • 00:18:27.000 --> 00:18:30.030
  • You can't make a decision of unrighteousness
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:34.180
  • and think you gone stay up here.
  • 00:18:34.180 --> 00:18:37.080
  • So when the temptation comes to withhold tithe
  • 00:18:41.250 --> 00:18:46.120
  • or not come to church,
  • 00:18:46.120 --> 00:18:48.280
  • or love your wife even as Christ loves the church,
  • 00:18:48.280 --> 00:18:53.020
  • or to pray and study your word
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:56.030
  • see you don't understand
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:57.290
  • that you're already putting yourself
  • 00:18:57.290 --> 00:19:00.220
  • you're hustling backwards
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:01.290
  • the way they used to say it in the street.
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:04.240
  • You're trying to live an above life
  • 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:07.070
  • making beneath decisions
  • 00:19:07.070 --> 00:19:08.290
  • when the scriptures says you shall be above
  • 00:19:08.290 --> 00:19:13.110
  • and never beneath.
  • 00:19:13.110 --> 00:19:15.110
  • This system is what has been created
  • 00:19:15.110 --> 00:19:19.000
  • to guarantee you an above lifestyle.
  • 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:22.000
  • I'm done.
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:28.010
  • Don't act like you ain't interested.
  • 00:19:28.010 --> 00:19:31.060
  • I'm quitting.
  • 00:19:31.060 --> 00:19:32.060
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:35.240
  • Come on stand up quickly.
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:44.060
  • Rest on your feet.
  • 00:19:45.080 --> 00:19:46.230
  • How many decisions
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:53.200
  • and they are twisting this system every single day.
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:20:01.060
  • A little girl at the age of five
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:07.080
  • goes to her mother and say, "I feel like I'm a boy."
  • 00:20:08.200 --> 00:20:12.230
  • "Baby, you don't have to be trapped in a girl's body
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:20.070
  • "if you feel like a boy.
  • 00:20:21.190 --> 00:20:23.200
  • "I will assist you."
  • 00:20:23.200 --> 00:20:25.150
  • Even to the point where a Christian organization
  • 00:20:27.090 --> 00:20:31.160
  • has made exception for a little girl to in
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:35.030
  • years of standard have now made an exception
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:41.210
  • for a girl to be a part of the Boy Scouts.
  • 00:20:43.020 --> 00:20:46.170
  • Target has decided not to display gender
  • 00:20:48.030 --> 00:20:52.090
  • when it comes to their clothing.
  • 00:20:52.090 --> 00:20:54.290
  • There's no little boys section, little girls section.
  • 00:20:56.250 --> 00:21:00.020
  • It's kid's clothes.
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:01.180
  • So you can have the liberty of training your child
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:07.160
  • in the way they wanna go.
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:09.180
  • You can't keep violating the system of God
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:16.210
  • and think you gone live above.
  • 00:21:18.230 --> 00:21:20.290
  • I know this kind of teaching and preaching
  • 00:21:20.290 --> 00:21:23.190
  • is not popular in our culture.
  • 00:21:23.190 --> 00:21:26.040
  • But somebody is gonna have to risk
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:31.070
  • losing everybody if it means that
  • 00:21:31.070 --> 00:21:34.020
  • to tell the truth, the whole truth
  • 00:21:35.070 --> 00:21:37.250
  • and nothing but the truth.
  • 00:21:37.250 --> 00:21:39.220
  • Am I your enemy because I tell you the truth?
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:42.290
  • You shall know the truth.
  • 00:21:42.290 --> 00:21:45.020
  • The truth shall make you free.
  • 00:21:49.270 --> 00:21:52.120
  • When you were supposed to train up a child
  • 00:21:59.080 --> 00:22:02.020
  • my daddy would see me in my mama's high heels
  • 00:22:02.020 --> 00:22:06.090
  • "Boy, if you don't take them shoes off."
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:10.170
  • He didn't say, "Do you feel like a little girl?"
  • 00:22:10.170 --> 00:22:13.110
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:16.220
  • Knees are bowing to a demonic system.
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:19.250
  • They ain't born that way.
  • 00:22:28.210 --> 00:22:30.150
  • They are making choices by the droves.
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:33.200
  • It's an option that this society has given us.
  • 00:22:36.230 --> 00:22:40.180
  • Because there's no governor
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:44.090
  • no ruler over your system
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:47.130
  • you have selected another ruler.
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:52.060
  • You can't live above making beneath decisions.
  • 00:22:52.060 --> 00:22:56.010
  • That's why the bible says,
  • 00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:03.240
  • "In all your ways acknowledge him."
  • 00:23:03.240 --> 00:23:06.260
  • He'll give you the above decisions.
  • 00:23:09.190 --> 00:23:12.100
  • Hand over your decisions today.
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:14.280
  • Hand them over to him.
