  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:34.190
  • that what you say you understand you don't.
  • 00:00:34.190 --> 00:00:37.280
  • When there's any deficit of
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:39.170
  • what you say you understand in your life
  • 00:00:39.170 --> 00:00:42.150
  • over the period of time I'm going to begin to
  • 00:00:42.150 --> 00:00:45.090
  • question what you say you understand.
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:48.070
  • Because understanding of these keys
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:50.290
  • of the principles found in God's word
  • 00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:53.210
  • will remove every deficit.
  • 00:00:53.210 --> 00:00:55.260
  • It's the main thing.
  • 00:00:59.210 --> 00:01:01.210
  • So the bible says get it.
  • 00:01:01.210 --> 00:01:04.130
  • Got it?
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:05.080
  • The bible says what?
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:07.100
  • - [Congregation] Get it.
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:08.110
  • - Now how do you get wisdom?
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:10.200
  • James says, "If any man lack it, ask."
  • 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:15.100
  • Now the minute you ask Jesus
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:20.100
  • because first Corinthians says
  • 00:01:22.070 --> 00:01:25.020
  • Jesus has become the wisdom to us.
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:27.270
  • So the minute someone has asked Jesus
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:33.150
  • to come into their life they receive all the wisdom
  • 00:01:33.150 --> 00:01:38.130
  • at that moment that they'll ever need.
  • 00:01:38.130 --> 00:01:41.080
  • Come on let me teach you something.
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:42.250
  • Look interested in what I'm saying.
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:45.230
  • I'm not moved by your looks.
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:48.150
  • I just want you to nod your head every now and then.
  • 00:01:48.150 --> 00:01:51.100
  • If you don't it ain't gone change a thing.
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:53.240
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:53.240 --> 00:01:55.220
  • When you accepted Jesus Christ as Lord
  • 00:01:55.220 --> 00:01:59.090
  • you received all the answers that you'll ever need in life.
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:03.160
  • Turn to your neighbor and say
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:06.240
  • you sitting by solutions.
  • 00:02:06.240 --> 00:02:08.230
  • - [Congregation] You sitting by solutions.
  • 00:02:08.230 --> 00:02:12.220
  • - Look at the neighbor on the other side.
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:14.280
  • Tell him say you're sitting by answers.
  • 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:17.200
  • - [Congregation] You sitting by answers.
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:19.210
  • - People don't get paid for coming up with the problem.
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:23.070
  • People get paid for coming up with answers.
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:26.250
  • Since you are the answer
  • 00:02:30.020 --> 00:02:32.060
  • that's all you gone come up with
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:34.080
  • so subsequently you gone be paid in just a little bit.
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:39.020
  • Your money ain't ever looked
  • 00:02:39.020 --> 00:02:40.270
  • like it's getting ready to look.
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:43.210
  • I wish somebody would get in agreement.
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:47.050
  • Your increase ain't ever looked like it's about to.
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:51.140
  • No, I am not just talking.
  • 00:02:51.140 --> 00:02:53.230
  • I'm prophesying to you.
  • 00:02:53.230 --> 00:02:56.010
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:02:56.010 --> 00:02:59.060
  • I know what this is about to produce.
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:01.260
  • I know like I know my name.
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:04.080
  • You ain't gone sit in here
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:06.090
  • and not go up, all the way up.
  • 00:03:06.090 --> 00:03:08.220
  • In all your getting
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:18.290
  • in all your getting
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:21.050
  • in all your getting
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.250
  • how many of you all got a wife?
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:26.280
  • Some of your hands went up so slow,
  • 00:03:28.030 --> 00:03:29.020
  • "Yeah, I got one."
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:31.170
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:35.240
  • Come on, ladies.
  • 00:03:35.240 --> 00:03:37.020
  • Don't do like them brothers just did.
  • 00:03:37.020 --> 00:03:38.280
  • How many of y'all got a husband?
  • 00:03:38.280 --> 00:03:40.260
  • (ladies cheering)
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:42.220
  • That was so much better.
  • 00:03:42.220 --> 00:03:44.220
  • Okay, let's do this over.
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:46.260
  • How many of y'all got a wife?
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:48.240
  • (men cheering)
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:51.150
  • So don't penalize him for that first one.
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:57.070
  • Give him a pass.
  • 00:03:57.070 --> 00:03:58.170
  • You got a husband, you got a wife
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:02.100
  • but you failed to get something with what you got.
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:06.150
  • Say it again?
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:10.170
  • I said some of you got a husband, you got a wife
  • 00:04:11.230 --> 00:04:13.250
  • but you failed to get something with them.
  • 00:04:13.250 --> 00:04:18.000
  • He said, "With all your getting."
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:20.270
  • So the minute you got a husband and you got a wife
  • 00:04:22.100 --> 00:04:24.240
  • you know the next thing that supposed
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:26.040
  • to come along with that?
  • 00:04:26.040 --> 00:04:27.210
  • Understanding.
  • 00:04:27.210 --> 00:04:29.130
  • You know why there's some challenge
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:31.020
  • like we have in marriages 'cause you got one
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:33.250
  • but you didn't get with your wife understanding.
  • 00:04:33.250 --> 00:04:37.070
  • I know I didn't.
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:39.080
  • I paid for what I didn't get.
  • 00:04:39.080 --> 00:04:41.240
  • Lord Jesus, thank God I got it now.
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:44.210
  • God isn't just gone give it to you.
  • 00:04:46.030 --> 00:04:47.150
  • You gone have to come for it.
  • 00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:49.140
  • You gone have to go after it with all your heart.
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:51.230
  • Lord, give me understanding
  • 00:04:51.230 --> 00:04:53.090
  • because what I was getting out of being married
  • 00:04:53.090 --> 00:04:56.040
  • Lord Jesus, was totally different from what I wanted.
  • 00:04:56.040 --> 00:05:00.110
  • Then I said, "Man, I need to get some understanding."
  • 00:05:00.110 --> 00:05:03.060
  • How many of y'all know
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:04.190
  • you need to know that thing that labors among you?
  • 00:05:04.190 --> 00:05:09.110
  • You need to know her.
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:10.270
  • Man, I know Dee Dee like I know the back of my hand now.
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:13.180
  • At one point I was pushing buttons
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:15.140
  • and I was wondering why she was acting like that.
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:18.130
  • (congregation muttering)
  • 00:05:18.130 --> 00:05:21.100
  • Y'all pushing that same button?
  • 00:05:21.100 --> 00:05:23.170
  • Then I started pushing all the right buttons
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:25.200
  • and I was getting what I want.
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:27.170
  • You ever seen a button on a combination lock
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:30.010
  • maybe around your house
  • 00:05:30.010 --> 00:05:31.160
  • and you can tell
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:32.240
  • you may not know the order of how
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:34.260
  • the numbers are laid out
  • 00:05:34.260 --> 00:05:36.110
  • but you can tell that's one of them numbers
  • 00:05:36.110 --> 00:05:38.200
  • 'cause that number is just worn out?
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:41.220
  • When you finally find the button
  • 00:05:41.220 --> 00:05:43.140
  • that's gone get you the result
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:45.160
  • understand it and keep pushing it.
  • 00:05:45.160 --> 00:05:47.270
  • For a long time I just had one go to button.
  • 00:05:47.270 --> 00:05:51.170
  • Now I got multiple buttons I can go to
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:55.040
  • because I understand the multiplicities of my wife
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:59.140
  • and how that thing has been made up.
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:02.140
  • I'm pushing buttons all the time
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:04.140
  • and getting what I want
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:07.000
  • because I got a wife I got understanding.
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:09.250
  • Some of you got jobs,
  • 00:06:09.250 --> 00:06:11.010
  • but you didn't get understanding.
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:12.170
  • Some of you got money,
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:13.250
  • but you don't have any understanding.
  • 00:06:13.250 --> 00:06:15.190
  • He said, "With all your getting."
  • 00:06:15.190 --> 00:06:17.090
  • You gotta pastor
  • 00:06:17.090 --> 00:06:18.220
  • but you ain't ever sought after understanding.
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:21.150
  • You got children but never understanding.
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:24.090
  • You are still focusing in on
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:27.000
  • the information of your daddy's daddy
  • 00:06:27.000 --> 00:06:29.250
  • and that's what's going down in your house.
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:32.050
  • You've never inquired of the Lord
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:35.020
  • concerning your own children.
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:37.150
  • Listen to me, Spirit of Faith.
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:40.160
  • Listen too, my blessed, blessed partners.

  • I wanna lay something out for you today
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:48.170
  • that I've been talking about
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.270
  • that has made me a brilliant man.
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:53.190
  • Not brilliance that has come from the world's brilliance
  • 00:06:56.140 --> 00:07:01.110
  • but brilliance that has come from God's brilliance.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:05.270
  • He said all of the wisdom of this world
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:09.190
  • Paul said I count as dung.
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:11.240
  • It will come to naught.
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:16.270
  • But the wisdom of our God has a big payback.
  • 00:07:16.270 --> 00:07:20.170
  • Because I'm there I know the road to there
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:28.130
  • and I wanna assist you there.
  • 00:07:28.130 --> 00:07:30.220
  • Don't despise the success of what

  • I'm about to share with you.
  • 00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:35.250
  • You would want to despise it
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:37.290
  • if I was not liberal and communicating it to you.
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:41.290
  • I ain't one of them cats who get there
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:44.140
  • and won't tell nobody.
  • 00:07:44.140 --> 00:07:46.150
  • I know them kind of haters.
  • 00:07:46.150 --> 00:07:48.090
  • Them the only ones they just want it for themselves
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:51.170
  • but they don't want it for you.
  • 00:07:51.170 --> 00:07:53.080
  • Like your having what I have
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:55.160
  • ain't gone take nothing from me.
  • 00:07:55.160 --> 00:07:58.040
  • To light your fire is not gone dim my flame.
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:01.260
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:05.140
  • It blessed my life to roll up there and see
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:10.180
  • Maserati's, and Bentley's, and Benz.
  • 00:08:10.180 --> 00:08:13.180
  • Call me materialistic if you want to
  • 00:08:15.010 --> 00:08:17.240
  • but that's signs of success.
  • 00:08:17.240 --> 00:08:20.150
  • When husbands are holding wives' hand
  • 00:08:20.150 --> 00:08:23.230
  • instead of them walking 10 feet behind them,
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:26.280
  • there's a sign that they got some unity in their house.
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:31.140
  • I'm looking for fruit.
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:33.140
  • Just don't talk the talk.
  • 00:08:33.140 --> 00:08:35.200
  • Let's walk the walk, baby.

  • that I'm assigned to god dog.
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:45.230
  • I'm assigned to you.
  • 00:08:45.230 --> 00:08:47.290
  • If you'll just listen and set yourself to understand.
  • 00:08:47.290 --> 00:08:52.050
  • "See that's all that church talk about is money."
  • 00:08:52.050 --> 00:08:54.290
  • Shut up join another church.
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.270

  • that's why I can't ever finish nothing.
  • 00:09:14.160 --> 00:09:16.120
  • Have a seat.
  • 00:09:16.120 --> 00:09:17.120
  • Okay.
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:21.220
  • Now,
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:22.170
  • I told you that the kingdom of God is a government.
  • 00:09:23.290 --> 00:09:27.180
  • It's a system.
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:31.110
  • It's a way of doing stuff.
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:40.020
  • What I just say?
  • 00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:45.040
  • - [Congregation] It's a system a way of doing stuff.
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:48.060
  • - What is a system?
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:49.140
  • - [Congregation] The kingdom of God.
  • 00:09:49.140 --> 00:09:52.140
  • - It's a government.
  • 00:09:53.090 --> 00:09:54.290
  • It's a way of doing stuff.
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:09:58.110
  • Now the scripture says there is a way
  • 00:10:00.010 --> 00:10:03.150
  • Dr. Grisette, that seems right.
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:06.150
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:09.160
  • Now what we're called to do
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:12.140
  • to make the distinction between
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:15.190
  • Pastor Henry, what seems right and what is right.
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:19.210
  • Now as believers you gotta get a hold of this.
  • 00:10:22.190 --> 00:10:26.290
  • You are not a part of this world's system.
  • 00:10:26.290 --> 00:10:30.140
  • Everything.
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:33.150
  • What I just say?
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:34.130
  • - [Congregation] Everything.
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:35.280
  • - Everything is governed and controlled by systems
  • 00:10:35.280 --> 00:10:39.170
  • solar system, nervous system,
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:42.020
  • rail road system, phone system
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:46.110
  • governmental system.
  • 00:10:46.110 --> 00:10:48.000
  • Come on you name them systems.
  • 00:10:48.000 --> 00:10:50.250
  • So it is with kingdom of God.
  • 00:10:50.250 --> 00:10:53.140
  • Now share with them real quickly
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:56.290
  • the definition for system.
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:59.040
  • We looked over some systems.
  • 00:11:00.280 --> 00:11:03.080
  • We looked at bureaucracy.
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:07.000
  • Bam, what is it?
  • 00:11:08.080 --> 00:11:09.170
  • (congregation muttering)
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:14.280
  • Okay, we been over this.
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:16.090
  • Then we looked at democracy.
  • 00:11:16.090 --> 00:11:18.190
  • It's a...
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:21.170
  • (congregation muttering)
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:23.140
  • Hunch your neighbor say we been over that too.
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:25.080
  • - [Congregation] We've been over that too.
  • 00:11:25.080 --> 00:11:27.240
  • - Theocracy
  • 00:11:27.240 --> 00:11:28.240
  • which priest rule.
  • 00:11:32.200 --> 00:11:34.050
  • Now before we look at this last system
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:39.220
  • that I did not introduce to you last week
  • 00:11:39.220 --> 00:11:44.020
  • let me present Revelations chapter number 11.
  • 00:11:44.020 --> 00:11:47.250
  • Go there.
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:50.240
  • Let's look at verse number 15.
  • 00:11:50.240 --> 00:11:53.090
  • Then following I want you to prepare for me
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:57.240
  • John chapter number eight verse 23
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:12:00.260
  • 'cause I need to zip through this portion.
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:03.240
  • Because, ladies and gentlemen
  • 00:12:03.240 --> 00:12:06.080
  • there is a system that exists
  • 00:12:06.080 --> 00:12:08.220
  • that cannot be seen but exists
  • 00:12:09.250 --> 00:12:12.120

  • cannot be seen but exists.
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:22.140
  • Now I have been functioning
  • 00:12:22.140 --> 00:12:24.240
  • in that system for quite some time.
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:29.070
  • The fruit that I have in my life
  • 00:12:29.070 --> 00:12:31.230
  • is a byproduct of the system
  • 00:12:31.230 --> 00:12:34.060
  • that I'm proposing, presenting

  • to become a part of participating
  • 00:12:40.230 --> 00:12:43.180
  • and cooperating with this system
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:47.250
  • so you can change every area of lack to abundance
  • 00:12:47.250 --> 00:12:52.000
  • every area of deficit into overflow.
  • 00:12:54.190 --> 00:12:57.190
  • Anybody interested in the overflow
  • 00:12:59.280 --> 00:13:02.270
  • of every area of your life?
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:07.110
  • My God I needed some ketchup the other day,
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:11.030
  • and I asked Dan Wooten for some ketchup.
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:14.170
  • Prior to him bringing that ketchup out the other day
  • 00:13:14.170 --> 00:13:18.190
  • I pitched a fit about not having enough ketchup around here.
  • 00:13:18.190 --> 00:13:22.240
  • When I asked for something I want it in abundance.
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:27.170

  • 'Cause there's no sense of running out of something
  • 00:13:35.010 --> 00:13:39.110
  • that is in tremendous supply.
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:41.230
  • God has a supply that's laid up for you.
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:46.160
  • Come on too long have you been

  • trying to stretch the last bit
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:57.210

  • Pastor say, "What's wrong little fella.
  • 00:18:29.010 --> 00:18:30.200
  • "You don't wanna go to Heaven."
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:32.020
  • He said, "Yes, sir I do.
  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:33.160
  • "But it sound like you was getting up a trip right now."
  • 00:18:33.160 --> 00:18:35.280
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:38.100
  • Everybody wanna go to Heaven
  • 00:18:38.100 --> 00:18:41.090
  • but nobody wanna die yet.
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:43.110
  • What I'm preparing for
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:48.220
  • see I ain't interested giving my sister no money.

  • I'm a have an Enoch encounter.
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:53.230
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:18:53.230 --> 00:18:57.130
  • I wanna be walking along
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:18:59.150
  • hanging with somebody and then.
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:03.100
  • What you don't wanna be is somebody who's saying,
  • 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:06.190
  • "Where'd he go?"
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:08.060
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:19:08.060 --> 00:19:11.170
  • How many of y'all going up on the first trip?
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:25.150
  • You don't wanna go on the second
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:27.200
  • and that's another lesson.
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:29.250
  • Okay, so this system
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:34.030
  • that I've been trying to discuss with you
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:39.120
  • will eventually hit.
  • 00:19:39.120 --> 00:19:41.020
  • I mean and hit hard and hit forever.
  • 00:19:42.220 --> 00:19:45.220
  • Now this Revelations
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:49.190
  • I think it's 11:10.
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:51.050
  • We'll work our way to 15.
  • 00:19:51.050 --> 00:19:53.070
  • Those who dwell on Earth will rejoice over them
  • 00:19:54.120 --> 00:19:57.250
  • make marry and send gifts to one another
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:20:01.160
  • because these two prophets tormented
  • 00:20:01.160 --> 00:20:04.120
  • those who dwell on Earth.
  • 00:20:04.120 --> 00:20:06.070
  • Okay, I see the account.
  • 00:20:06.070 --> 00:20:07.280
  • Now after three and a half days
  • 00:20:07.280 --> 00:20:10.100
  • the breath of life from God entered them.
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:13.240
  • There's gone be a war that's gone go on.
  • 00:20:13.240 --> 00:20:16.100
  • These are symbolic of those two systems
  • 00:20:16.100 --> 00:20:19.250
  • that you see that's gone go at it.
  • 00:20:19.250 --> 00:20:22.070
  • They stood on their feet
  • 00:20:22.070 --> 00:20:23.160
  • and great fear fell on those who saw them.
  • 00:20:23.160 --> 00:20:27.010
  • Watch this.
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:28.030
  • They heard a loud voice
  • 00:20:28.030 --> 00:20:30.050
  • and see this is what we're getting to.
  • 00:20:30.050 --> 00:20:31.280
  • They heard a loud voice from Heaven saying,
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:34.090
  • "Come up here", good God from Zion.
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:36.210
  • Come up hither, and they ascended to Heaven in a cloud.
  • 00:20:36.210 --> 00:20:40.190
  • Their enemies also people in another system
  • 00:20:40.190 --> 00:20:44.180
  • they saw it and heard it.
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:46.070
  • In the same hour there was a great earthquake
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:49.070
  • and a 10th of the city fell.
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:51.170
  • There's very great relevance
  • 00:20:52.130 --> 00:20:54.090
  • and significance to that 10th there
  • 00:20:54.090 --> 00:20:56.170
  • but that's not my point so I'm not gone go into that.
  • 00:20:56.170 --> 00:21:00.260
  • In the earthquake 7.000 people were what?
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:04.090
  • That's why you wanna go up on the first trip.
  • 00:21:04.090 --> 00:21:07.050
  • You don't wanna have anything to do with this.
  • 00:21:07.050 --> 00:21:09.020
  • I can't talk about that now
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:10.090
  • because this is not my subject matter.
  • 00:21:10.090 --> 00:21:12.240
  • The rest were afraid and gave glory to God of Heaven.
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:16.200
  • They were afraid.
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:17.230
  • The second woe is passed.
  • 00:21:17.230 --> 00:21:19.270
  • Behold now the third woe is coming quickly.
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:23.250
  • Watch this.
  • 00:21:23.250 --> 00:21:24.230
  • The seventh angel did sounded,
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:28.010
  • sounded, oh, my god.
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:29.240
  • Okay, okay, okay.
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:32.000
  • So how can I do this?
  • 00:21:32.000 --> 00:21:34.060
  • How can I do this?
  • 00:21:34.060 --> 00:21:35.190
  • How can I do it?
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:36.260
  • I heard it give me the definition of system
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:39.210
  • on this screen and hold there
  • 00:21:39.210 --> 00:21:42.130
  • that same scripture right there.
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:44.130
  • Got it.
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:45.110
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:21:45.110 --> 00:21:47.260
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:21:47.260 --> 00:21:50.030
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:51.250
  • Stay with me here.
  • 00:21:51.250 --> 00:21:52.290
  • Hold that on that screen
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:54.200
  • and let's go along with this screen.
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:56.060
  • Are you still here?
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:57.230
  • Come on this is a learning institute, man.
  • 00:21:57.230 --> 00:22:00.200
  • I wanna get you to understand some things
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:03.010
  • that's why I started with that first scripture
  • 00:22:03.010 --> 00:22:05.100
  • understanding is.
  • 00:22:05.100 --> 00:22:06.170
  • Because if you can get this you'll win in life
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:10.020
  • and this is a money back guarantee.
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:13.240
  • If you can get what I'm saying to you today
  • 00:22:13.240 --> 00:22:17.030
  • don't you dare sit there like you're disinterested
  • 00:22:17.030 --> 00:22:20.060
  • especially if your money funny.
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:22.230
  • Your marriage messed up
  • 00:22:24.200 --> 00:22:26.070
  • and you gone sit there, "I wish he'll hurry up."
  • 00:22:26.070 --> 00:22:29.270
  • You should wanna sit here until I'm finished
  • 00:22:29.270 --> 00:22:33.200
  • especially if there's any deficit in your life.
  • 00:22:35.020 --> 00:22:37.130
  • Okay, here we go.
  • 00:22:37.130 --> 00:22:39.110
  • There were a loud voice in Heaven saying
  • 00:22:39.110 --> 00:22:42.150
  • what did he say
  • 00:22:42.150 --> 00:22:44.090
  • "The systems
  • 00:22:44.090 --> 00:22:45.090
  • "or the kingdoms of this world have become."
  • 00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:50.220
  • They are not right now across the board
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:57.110
  • but at this point in the game they would have come.
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:04.270
  • They would have become the kingdoms of our God.
  • 00:23:04.270 --> 00:23:09.090
  • Because every system, listen to me carefully
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:12.160
  • every system that exists is gonna have to
  • 00:23:12.160 --> 00:23:16.140
  • bow its knee to the system I'm proposing to you now.
  • 00:23:16.140 --> 00:23:20.190
  • That's why you need to hand over
  • 00:23:22.280 --> 00:23:25.210
  • some of those decisions that you are making.
  • 00:23:26.250 --> 00:23:31.020
  • You need to just give them to me now
  • 00:23:31.020 --> 00:23:33.240
  • because either you fall on the rock the scripture says
  • 00:23:33.240 --> 00:23:37.150
  • or the rock will fall on you and crush you.
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:41.020
  • Either the scripture in Philippians says
  • 00:23:43.030 --> 00:23:45.220
  • every knee should bow
  • 00:23:45.220 --> 00:23:47.170
  • but Thessalonians says every knee shall bow.
  • 00:23:48.230 --> 00:23:52.130
  • Which leads me to believe that you should or you shall.
  • 00:23:53.250 --> 00:23:57.260
  • You gone do it one way or the other.
  • 00:24:00.110 --> 00:24:09.000

  • to make sure I can speak to you.
  • 00:25:55.070 --> 00:25:57.190

  • You won't have to dress up or be
  • 00:25:59.120 --> 00:26:01.290
  • prepared as we would for conferences.
  • 00:26:01.290 --> 00:26:04.250
  • I just want to sit there with you,
  • 00:26:04.250 --> 00:26:07.080

  • to cause your ministry to have
  • 00:26:10.110 --> 00:26:12.070
  • the excitement that we have here at

  • But GGG, you won't want to miss it, I promise you.
  • 00:26:16.120 --> 00:26:19.240
  • Don't be like one of those who were saying after the fact,
  • 00:26:19.240 --> 00:26:23.160
  • "Man, I knew I should have been there."
  • 00:26:23.160 --> 00:26:26.000
  • Be there.
  • 00:26:26.000 --> 00:26:26.250
  • (powerful music)
  • 00:26:29.280 --> 00:26:31.220
  • - Well, a lot of us spend a lot
  • 00:26:31.220 --> 00:26:32.290
  • of time getting to know who God is,
  • 00:26:32.290 --> 00:26:35.140
  • but we never let that translate into who that makes me.
  • 00:26:35.140 --> 00:26:38.180
  • And we're worshiping God,
  • 00:26:38.180 --> 00:26:39.250
  • but we never let God get close enough to us
  • 00:26:39.250 --> 00:26:42.170
  • so we can see ourselves the way that he created us.
  • 00:26:42.170 --> 00:26:45.110
  • - See, you want things from God
  • 00:26:45.110 --> 00:26:46.230
  • but you don't live by his rules.
  • 00:26:46.230 --> 00:26:48.240
  • So when you think nobody's watching you, baby,
  • 00:26:48.240 --> 00:26:51.000
  • please believe God is watching.
  • 00:26:51.000 --> 00:26:52.230
  • Your integrity is not built on this stage
  • 00:26:52.230 --> 00:26:54.270
  • but is built in those private areas of your life.
  • 00:26:54.270 --> 00:26:57.150
