  • When I was in Dubai,
  • 00:00:45.110 --> 00:00:47.010
  • I discovered
  • 00:00:48.140 --> 00:00:49.140
  • that men could have up to four wives.
  • 00:00:50.200 --> 00:00:54.180
  • (congregation chattering)
  • 00:00:55.240 --> 00:00:59.100
  • DD!
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:01.020
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:01:01.020 --> 00:01:02.150
  • I was lookin' at DD,
  • 00:01:02.150 --> 00:01:04.280
  • lookin' at this system.
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:06.260
  • I'm saying, DD,
  • 00:01:09.080 --> 00:01:10.150
  • you wanna move to Dubai?
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:13.050
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:16.260
  • We're having fun with it,
  • 00:01:16.260 --> 00:01:18.280
  • but guess what?
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:20.060
  • Where we are, geographically,
  • 00:01:21.020 --> 00:01:23.230
  • doesn't trump the theocracy
  • 00:01:23.230 --> 00:01:27.250
  • that I'm a part of.
  • 00:01:27.250 --> 00:01:30.010
  • So, even if I was in Dubai,
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:32.140
  • because I'm a part of another system,
  • 00:01:32.140 --> 00:01:36.030
  • I would still have to have one wife.
  • 00:01:36.030 --> 00:01:39.030
  • Are you all hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:41.210 --> 00:01:43.290
  • See, to comply with
  • 00:01:43.290 --> 00:01:48.070
  • what you're in, and here's,
  • 00:01:48.070 --> 00:01:51.120
  • here is the conundrum, here's the oxymoron here,
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:55.040
  • the Bible says we are in this system,
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:59.060
  • but we're not of this system.
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:03.170
  • As a matter of fact, you can tell
  • 00:02:03.170 --> 00:02:06.010
  • how attached you may be to this system
  • 00:02:06.010 --> 00:02:08.170
  • when I mention that Donald Trump may be
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:11.230
  • the 45th and last president,
  • 00:02:11.230 --> 00:02:13.290
  • how that bothers you about the, in the world,
  • 00:02:13.290 --> 00:02:18.080
  • the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:02:18.080 --> 00:02:20.130
  • may give you a barometer, or a gauge,
  • 00:02:20.130 --> 00:02:23.220
  • about how much you are attached
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:26.060
  • to this system, where the scripture says
  • 00:02:26.060 --> 00:02:28.120
  • we are sojourners; we are just passing through.
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:32.020
  • This place is not our home.
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:34.000
  • How can you get so attached
  • 00:02:34.000 --> 00:02:36.050
  • to a system that's full of lust,
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:38.230
  • that's full of deceit, that's full of deception?
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:41.190
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying to you?
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:43.260
  • And the Bible says love not the world,
  • 00:02:43.260 --> 00:02:46.160
  • neither the things that are in the world,
  • 00:02:46.160 --> 00:02:49.110
  • because all there is in the world is the lust of the eye,
  • 00:02:49.110 --> 00:02:53.100
  • the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:56.080
  • But southerly, there are people from this higher system,
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:03:00.100
  • being sucked into this lower system,
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:03.040
  • and you're living like Earthlings.
  • 00:03:03.040 --> 00:03:05.290
  • John, chapter 18, let's look at it.
  • 00:03:07.240 --> 00:03:11.060
  • Verse 36; are you still here?
  • 00:03:11.060 --> 00:03:13.070
  • - Yeah. - Yes, sir.
  • 00:03:13.070 --> 00:03:14.220
  • - What area of your life have you condescended to?
  • 00:03:14.220 --> 00:03:17.200
  • Have you come down, and now you're living like normal men.
  • 00:03:17.200 --> 00:03:22.190
  • You're living like average men
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:25.000
  • who don't understand that you come from
  • 00:03:25.000 --> 00:03:26.280
  • an entirely different system.
  • 00:03:26.280 --> 00:03:28.280
  • Whereby where they cuss you, you bless them.
  • 00:03:28.280 --> 00:03:33.070
  • Turn to them and say, that's a real different system.
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:36.210
  • - [Congregation] That's a real different system.
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:40.020
  • - John 18, let's look at verse 36.
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:42.290
  • Jesus answered and said, my system,
  • 00:03:42.290 --> 00:03:46.090
  • my kingdom, it's not of this world,
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:49.130
  • because there's a world system,
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:51.110
  • and then there's a God system.
  • 00:03:51.110 --> 00:03:53.040
  • He said, it's not of this world.
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:55.090
  • Watch this, read on,
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:56.290
  • if my kingdom were of this world,
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:02.050
  • oh, we would fight.
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.260
  • Oh, we would respond,
  • 00:04:03.260 --> 00:04:05.250
  • but we don't fight and we don't respond,
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:09.050
  • because our system is greater than this system.
  • 00:04:09.050 --> 00:04:13.270
  • Oh, man, when people speak evil of you,
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:16.240
  • our system says, bless them.
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:19.070
  • Take 'em out to Popeye's, buy 'em a two-piece.
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:23.020
  • Okay, come on, Matthews four.
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:27.100
  • Matthew four.
  • 00:04:28.220 --> 00:04:29.250
  • I told you, I'm gonna be working on your thinking,
  • 00:04:31.090 --> 00:04:35.140
  • your dominion, and your giving,
  • 00:04:35.140 --> 00:04:38.080
  • and some of these decisions that you are making in life
  • 00:04:38.080 --> 00:04:42.060
  • comes from a different system.
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:44.120
  • You are a part of one system,
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:46.240
  • but you're making decisions, in your life,
  • 00:04:46.240 --> 00:04:50.090
  • that's a part of another system.
  • 00:04:50.090 --> 00:04:52.160
  • You can't change a system that you depend on.
  • 00:04:52.160 --> 00:04:56.070
  • In other words, the same system that you depend on,
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:05:00.240
  • you will never be able to change.
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:02.260
  • In other words, if you are on welfare,
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:05.110
  • you can't change welfare if you need welfare.
  • 00:05:05.110 --> 00:05:09.220
  • You're not gonna wanna go against
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:12.050
  • the welfare system if I rely on the welfare system.
  • 00:05:12.050 --> 00:05:16.100
  • See, that system that takes care of you the most
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:19.130
  • is the system that you gonna give more attention to.
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:22.270
  • We who are of another system,
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:25.070
  • we are in this world, and we know
  • 00:05:25.070 --> 00:05:27.250
  • we don't have to live life
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.220
  • judged upon the system that we're in,
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:32.210
  • because we got a system that takes care
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:36.000
  • of those who a part of it.
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:38.010
  • (congregation chattering)
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:39.000
  • I pitched a fit,
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:42.260
  • and now I gotta quit.
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:46.030
  • Oh, boy.
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:46.280
  • Matthew six and 10, write that down.
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:51.150
  • Matthew six 33, and we'll take a look at
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:55.150
  • Matthew 12 and 25.
  • 00:05:55.150 --> 00:05:57.200
  • I pitched a fit.
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:05:59.290
  • Our brother Reggie was with me
  • 00:06:01.290 --> 00:06:04.060
  • this week; I literally went off.
  • 00:06:04.060 --> 00:06:06.260
  • I dog gone lost it.
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:10.260
  • Lost it, in a good sense.
  • 00:06:12.020 --> 00:06:14.240
  • An associate of mine
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:20.170
  • has been attacked, in this Hell,
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:25.030
  • and
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:28.190
  • there were some things that his wife
  • 00:06:32.090 --> 00:06:36.010
  • was concerned about.
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:37.210
  • And, she called
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:43.110
  • and asked if I would come, now I'm just landed from
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:47.030
  • Dubai, and so when
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:50.180
  • we landed, you know, I had to make a decision
  • 00:06:50.180 --> 00:06:54.040
  • on whether or not I wanted to go
  • 00:06:54.040 --> 00:06:56.270
  • and take care of this matter
  • 00:06:56.270 --> 00:06:59.170
  • that I just mentioned.
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:02.050
  • And so, the spirit of God impressed upon,
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:04.180
  • see, the system where you come from,
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:07.270
  • if He's Lord, He rules and He reigns,
  • 00:07:07.270 --> 00:07:12.140
  • and that's what I was telling DD when we landed.
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:16.070
  • Jesus said, if you're gonna follow me,
  • 00:07:16.070 --> 00:07:18.180
  • one of the stipulations of following Him,
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:23.020
  • He had to tell these boys,
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:24.270
  • foxes have holes,
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:27.130
  • birds have nests,
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:29.240
  • but the son of man doesn't have
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:32.160
  • anywhere to lay His head.
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:35.160
  • And I said, DD, it's dangerous
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:37.280
  • that we have the home base
  • 00:07:37.280 --> 00:07:40.020
  • and that we are so, we're so,
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:43.100
  • we're so connected, we embrace our home.
  • 00:07:43.100 --> 00:07:47.000
  • We said, man, it's so good to be home.
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:50.080
  • It's nothing like home,
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:51.210
  • like coming back in here is like,
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:53.160
  • is like nothing like being home.
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.230
  • But ladies and gentlemen, God wants you to make home
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:59.110
  • wherever His will is for you. (congregation applauding)
  • 00:07:59.110 --> 00:08:02.190
  • Are you hearing?
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:03.270
  • And I'm not saying sell your houses,
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:07.070
  • but I'm saying let's disconnect from this world.
  • 00:08:07.070 --> 00:08:10.120
  • You've gotta have a place to stay,
  • 00:08:10.120 --> 00:08:12.050
  • and we know Jesus had a home, because Peter
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:14.180
  • asked Jesus, show us where you live, man.
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:17.030
  • So we know He grew up in a home,
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:19.000
  • because of Mary and Joseph, He had a home,
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:21.200
  • but Jesus was so sold out to the system
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:25.260
  • that He's coming from, He was like, not my will.
  • 00:08:25.260 --> 00:08:28.220
  • If you want me to go here, I'll go.
  • 00:08:28.220 --> 00:08:31.030
  • If you want me to to there, I'll go.
  • 00:08:31.030 --> 00:08:33.140
  • I'm not so locked in to this just being my home.
  • 00:08:33.140 --> 00:08:37.090
  • I want my home to be your will.
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:40.190
  • Come on, are you hearing what I'm saying to you?
  • 00:08:41.250 --> 00:08:44.220
  • So I was so happy about being home,
  • 00:08:44.220 --> 00:08:48.130
  • I just wanted to go home and just relax,
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:51.190
  • but then the spirit of God says, no,
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:53.050
  • I need you to go and take care of this man.
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:56.040
  • And so, the next day, we got up and
  • 00:08:56.040 --> 00:08:58.200
  • we got back on the plane and we journeyed.
  • 00:08:58.200 --> 00:09:01.230
  • We went there and got off the plane,
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:04.060
  • sat down with the wife for a moment,
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:07.080
  • and she begin to tell me some things that were going on.
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:10.230
  • So I went to the hospital
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:13.110
  • of where the
  • 00:09:13.110 --> 00:09:14.110
  • Pastor happened to be,
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:18.070
  • the man happened to be in,
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:21.030
  • and some of these other family members
  • 00:09:21.030 --> 00:09:23.140
  • were doing some
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:25.150
  • very unlawful things,
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:29.000
  • as it relates to the kingdom of God.
  • 00:09:30.050 --> 00:09:33.190
  • As a matter of fact,
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:35.160
  • they were relocating this Pastor, this man,
  • 00:09:35.160 --> 00:09:39.040
  • without even the wife's knowledge.
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:43.090
  • And I walked in,
  • 00:09:45.250 --> 00:09:47.050
  • and to some degree,
  • 00:09:48.010 --> 00:09:50.110
  • he was on board with it.
  • 00:09:50.110 --> 00:09:52.110
  • I later discovered that this wife, that I was talking to,
  • 00:09:55.230 --> 00:09:59.230
  • is his sixth wife.
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:01.080
  • I don't care, I don't care if you got 25 wives.
  • 00:10:04.290 --> 00:10:09.110
  • I'm not gonna judge you, I'm not gonna put you down.
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:12.240
  • I don't know what the case may be,
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:14.080
  • but you are the common denominator in all the six.
  • 00:10:14.080 --> 00:10:17.220
  • (congregation chattering)
  • 00:10:17.220 --> 00:10:20.240
  • There's only one thing the same about all six: you.
  • 00:10:20.240 --> 00:10:24.290
  • And you're agreeing
  • 00:10:26.170 --> 00:10:28.050
  • with leaving without even the wife's knowledge.
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:32.090
  • We sitting there, and we turned and noticed a suitcase,
  • 00:10:32.090 --> 00:10:34.220
  • and what's the suitcase for?
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:36.090
  • He said, I'm going.
  • 00:10:36.090 --> 00:10:37.270
  • She said, going where?
  • 00:10:40.170 --> 00:10:42.220
  • And I'm saying, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:44.290
  • Now I got something to do with it because the system
  • 00:10:46.130 --> 00:10:49.000
  • that I come from says I'm my brother's keeper.
  • 00:10:49.000 --> 00:10:52.000
  • No, no, no, see you don't like
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:53.230
  • anybody stepping to you, when you are violating
  • 00:10:53.230 --> 00:10:57.110
  • the principles of this system.
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:59.010
  • You don't like it; you want the benefits of this system,
  • 00:10:59.010 --> 00:11:02.200
  • but you don't want to cooperate with this system,
  • 00:11:02.200 --> 00:11:06.200
  • because there are others who have the right to check me
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:10.020
  • when they see me not walking-- (congregation chattering)
  • 00:11:10.020 --> 00:11:14.070
  • We gonna have to fix this,
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:19.120
  • kingdom citizens.
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:21.180
  • Those who have made Him Lord.
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:23.100
  • I said, you listen to me, and you listen to me good,
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:26.090
  • and I called every leader and family member into that room
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:30.070
  • one by one, and I ripped up one side of 'em.
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:33.150
  • I said the reason why he has not received his healing
  • 00:11:33.150 --> 00:11:37.120
  • is because you're blocking it.
  • 00:11:37.120 --> 00:11:39.270
  • You're violating the system, but you're turning to the Lord
  • 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:45.010
  • of the system and asking for something from it.
  • 00:11:45.010 --> 00:11:48.150
  • Jesus went about preaching this system, and then healing.
  • 00:11:48.150 --> 00:11:53.010
  • Ooh, preaching and healing.
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:56.230
  • Once I can get you to subscribe to this system,
  • 00:11:56.230 --> 00:12:00.090
  • then I can get you healed.
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:02.020
  • (congregation chattering)
  • 00:12:02.020 --> 00:12:02.060
  • Shout I live - I live
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:04.220
  • - In the house - In the house
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:06.210
  • - Of plenty - Of plenty.

  • - My cup - My cup.
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:13.040
  • - You finish it.
  • 00:12:13.040 --> 00:12:14.020
  • - [Congregation] Runneth over.
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:15.270
  • - Okay, now put a praise on it.
  • 00:12:15.270 --> 00:12:18.130
  • (congregation applauding)

  • Surely
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:25.060
  • I said surely
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:27.240
  • surely
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:30.230
  • goodness and mercy
  • 00:12:32.040 --> 00:12:33.210
  • shall follow you

  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:58.140
  • - I discovered that in this system

  • you can transfer Heaven
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:06.190
  • on the other side of death.
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:12.030
  • Too many people have just experienced Heaven
  • 00:13:16.210 --> 00:13:20.140
  • through the portal of death.
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:24.040
  • When I get to Heaven
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:32.010
  • I'm gone sit down

  • Watch this.

  • When I get to Heaven

  • - [Congregant] Come on, pastor, hallelujah.
  • 00:14:01.240 --> 00:14:05.140
  • When we all

  • (congregation singing softly)
  • 00:14:19.130 --> 00:14:23.110

  • and something in me
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:37.040
  • I got this here spiritual suspicion.
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:42.100
  • I ain't never said that before.
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:47.220
  • That it won't be long.
  • 00:14:48.240 --> 00:14:50.180
  • It's sooner than we think.
  • 00:14:52.090 --> 00:14:54.150
  • I'm not in no hurry, really aren't
  • 00:14:55.210 --> 00:14:59.110
  • but he's coming.
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:00.230
  • Can we at least all agree?
  • 00:15:03.230 --> 00:15:05.280
  • I can't recall last time I heard a preacher preach on
  • 00:15:11.260 --> 00:15:15.130
  • excuse me, the coming of Jesus.
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:18.010
  • That Jesus is coming back.
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:19.200
  • He's coming back.
  • 00:15:19.200 --> 00:15:21.070
  • We don't hear he's coming back like we used to hear.
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:23.170
  • He's coming back.
  • 00:15:23.170 --> 00:15:25.170
  • Get your house in order.
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:27.170
  • Can I just tell you that?
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:31.100
  • Can I just decree that?
  • 00:15:31.100 --> 00:15:33.160
  • Can I charge you?
  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:34.280
  • Get your house
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:37.020
  • The truth shall make you free.
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:43.200
  • When you were supposed to train up a child
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:53.080
  • my daddy would see me in my mama's high heels
  • 00:15:53.080 --> 00:15:57.150
  • "Boy, if you don't take them shoes off."
  • 00:15:57.150 --> 00:16:01.250
  • He didn't say, "Do you feel like a little girl?"
  • 00:16:01.250 --> 00:16:04.190
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:16:04.190 --> 00:16:08.000
  • Knees are bowing to a demonic system.
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:11.030
  • They ain't born that way.
  • 00:16:19.290 --> 00:16:21.230
  • They are making choices by the droves.
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:24.280
  • It's an option that this society has given us.
  • 00:16:28.010 --> 00:16:31.260
  • Because there's no governor
  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:35.170
  • no ruler over your system
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:38.210
  • you have selected another ruler.
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:43.140
  • You can't live above making beneath decisions.
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:47.090
  • That's why the bible says,
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:55.000
  • "In all your ways acknowledge him."
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:58.020
  • He'll give you the above decisions.
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:03.180
  • Hand over your decisions today.
  • 00:17:03.180 --> 00:17:06.060
  • Hand them over to him.
  • 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:10.060
  • Not my will but God your will be done.
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:13.110
  • They're people who're contemplating divorce
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:17.100
  • because your flesh is just speaking to you.
  • 00:17:17.100 --> 00:17:20.280
  • "I no longer wanna be married."
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:26.130
  • I don't have a decision in that.
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:29.030
  • I don't.
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:32.050
  • I've handed that over.
  • 00:17:32.050 --> 00:17:34.070
  • I can't decide whether or not I'm gone divorce Dee Dee.
  • 00:17:34.070 --> 00:17:38.150
  • Even when we were having the hellish days
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:41.140
  • that we could beyond what you can imagine.
  • 00:17:41.140 --> 00:17:45.210
  • I could not make a decision to divorce her
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:49.100
  • because I gave that decision over to him.
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:52.220
  • I can't make a decision not to come to church.
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:57.280
  • I can't make a decision not to tithe.
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:00.050
  • I don't have that decision.
  • 00:18:00.050 --> 00:18:02.030
  • My decisions have been given to him.
  • 00:18:02.030 --> 00:18:05.170
  • Whatever you want from my life
  • 00:18:05.170 --> 00:18:08.150
  • that's what I'll do.
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:10.240
  • I'll do what you want me to do.
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:13.290
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:15.140
  • that's a transition to making him Lord.
  • 00:18:15.140 --> 00:18:18.220
  • For some of you he's just savior
  • 00:18:19.290 --> 00:18:22.220
  • but we gotta go deeper this year.
  • 00:18:22.220 --> 00:18:25.120
  • You gotta make him Lord.
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:27.120
  • You gotta make him Lord.
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:30.190
  • Because either he'll become Lord now
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:34.230
  • or he will become Lord later.
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:38.230
  • Series business being a part of this system.
  • 00:18:44.060 --> 00:18:47.260
  • This is not for girls scouts or boy scouts.
  • 00:18:49.020 --> 00:18:52.000
  • This is for soldiers.
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:53.200
  • I know I've kept you beyond your time
  • 00:18:55.110 --> 00:18:58.080
  • but I had to get that one piece out.
  • 00:18:58.080 --> 00:19:00.270
  • You should appreciate me
  • 00:19:00.270 --> 00:19:02.220
  • for wanting to get that piece out.
  • 00:19:02.220 --> 00:19:05.070
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:19:05.070 --> 00:19:08.240
  • When you're about to make your next set of decisions
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:16.020
  • you take them and say, "God, check this out for me.
  • 00:19:16.020 --> 00:19:20.070
  • "Please, check this, check this decision.
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:24.240
  • "I'm about to make this decision.
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:28.040
  • "I'm about to move from this house to that house."
  • 00:19:28.040 --> 00:19:31.080
  • "I'm about to buy whatever, start a business."
  • 00:19:31.080 --> 00:19:35.170
  • "I'm about to do whatever I beg of you."
  • 00:19:35.170 --> 00:19:39.020
  • Because you wanna live above and you talk above
  • 00:19:40.070 --> 00:19:43.000
  • but you wondering why I can't get ahead.
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:45.220
  • Because you are making all your decisions.
  • 00:19:45.220 --> 00:19:49.070
  • You gotta stop.
  • 00:19:50.190 --> 00:19:52.020
  • I'm trying to pour out my heart.
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:53.240
  • I wanna help.
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:19:54.270
  • I'm telling you that's how I'm living the way I'm living.
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:20:00.020
  • I'm not this smart.
  • 00:20:01.070 --> 00:20:03.070
  • It's God's wisdom.
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:04.220
  • I just decided like Jesus it's not my will.
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:10.130
  • If there's another way I would like to take it
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:14.180
  • but not my will.
  • 00:20:14.180 --> 00:20:15.280
  • He divided light from darkness.
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:20.170
  • Light is representative of righteousness.
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:27.170
  • Darkness is representative of unrighteousness.
  • 00:20:29.200 --> 00:20:33.150
  • In your vocabulary, you're going to have to do
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:39.240
  • like your heavenly father, and you're gonna have to divide
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:43.290
  • light words from dark words.
  • 00:20:45.020 --> 00:20:47.100
  • Oh, Lord, Jesus.
  • 00:20:48.130 --> 00:20:50.090
  • You better listen to what I'm telling you.
  • 00:20:50.090 --> 00:20:53.080
  • I am now, along with my entire family,
  • 00:20:53.080 --> 00:20:56.130
  • living in once spoken words.
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:20:59.180
  • Where I live today were just words yesterday
  • 00:21:05.000 --> 00:21:08.200
  • and I, throughout the course of my life,
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:16.150
  • have been walking through life, Tony,
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:19.160
  • separating light words, L-I-G-H-T, from dark words,
  • 00:21:19.160 --> 00:21:23.210
  • and people have looked at me as being strange
  • 00:21:27.160 --> 00:21:31.080
  • because when everything around me said,
  • 00:21:32.100 --> 00:21:35.140
  • "I should be saying what I see," I jumped over that system
  • 00:21:36.250 --> 00:21:40.170
  • and I didn't say what I looked at.
  • 00:21:45.040 --> 00:21:47.270
  • I said what God said because anything else
  • 00:21:49.070 --> 00:21:53.150
  • would have been corrupt communication.
  • 00:21:53.150 --> 00:21:56.200
  • So, you see in your relationship you can't talk.
  • 00:21:58.190 --> 00:22:03.080
  • We just can't talk, and guess what you say?
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:06.150
  • What you see.
  • 00:22:06.150 --> 00:22:07.170
  • We can't talk.
  • 00:22:09.190 --> 00:22:11.030
  • It's obvious.
  • 00:22:11.030 --> 00:22:12.050
  • We just can't talk.
  • 00:22:13.140 --> 00:22:15.010
  • We never could talk, and by the looks of things,
  • 00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:19.230
  • we never will be able to talk.
  • 00:22:19.230 --> 00:22:22.080
  • God is saying, "You foul-mouthed thing, you."
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:27.020
  • Because you haven't realized that words
  • 00:22:27.020 --> 00:22:30.090
  • have been the foundation to what you have created.
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:35.160
  • I'm on a fixed income, so be it.
  • 00:22:40.000 --> 00:22:42.200
  • What if everything you said came to pass?
  • 00:22:45.010 --> 00:22:48.120
  • My foot is killing me.
  • 00:22:51.190 --> 00:22:53.140
  • Let not your heart be troubled.
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:23:00.080
  • You believe in God.
  • 00:23:00.080 --> 00:23:01.260
  • We've been attending a lot of memorial services
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:05.230
  • but you are sticking that shovel in that soil
  • 00:23:08.180 --> 00:23:12.200
  • every time you let dark words come out of your mouth.
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:16.250
  • You 'gon be just like your no good daddy.
  • 00:23:21.020 --> 00:23:24.280
  • Go and dig that hole.
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:26.200
  • They're not giving anybody any raises.
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:32.150
  • Foul mouth.
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:35.160
  • Turn to your neighbor and say, "Today,"
  • 00:23:35.160 --> 00:23:37.150
  • - [Audience] Today.
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:38.100
  • - You're gonna separate.
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:39.160
  • - [Audience] You're gonna separate.
  • 00:23:39.160 --> 00:23:40.160
  • - Light words.
  • 00:23:40.160 --> 00:23:41.150
  • - [Audience] Light words.
  • 00:23:41.150 --> 00:23:42.130
  • - From dark words.
  • 00:23:42.130 --> 00:23:43.120
  • - [Audience] From dark words.
  • 00:23:43.120 --> 00:23:45.230
  • What part of whosoever do you not understand?
  • 00:23:48.090 --> 00:23:52.020
  • It didn't put any kind of qualifier on this.
  • 00:23:54.120 --> 00:23:58.020
  • He said whosoever, and that's why unsaved people
  • 00:24:01.030 --> 00:24:05.130
  • are living better than saved people,
  • 00:24:05.130 --> 00:24:09.040
  • because they done reached over into your system.
  • 00:24:09.040 --> 00:24:13.180
  • They done reached over in your system.
  • 00:24:13.180 --> 00:24:15.230
  • They have taken your principles and your laws
  • 00:24:15.230 --> 00:24:19.230
  • and God's way of doing things.
  • 00:24:19.230 --> 00:24:21.290
  • They don't want your Jesus but they know if I say,
  • 00:24:21.290 --> 00:24:26.120
  • because of this law,
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:28.010
  • so you can be unsaved and say unto your mountain.
  • 00:24:31.270 --> 00:24:35.290
  • I've settled up with my regret and my anguish
  • 00:24:37.210 --> 00:24:41.130
  • that I carried for some time about my father's church
  • 00:24:43.080 --> 00:24:47.130
  • and stuff that I learned in the past
  • 00:24:48.250 --> 00:24:51.160
  • because I was busy singing, climbing up
  • 00:24:51.160 --> 00:24:54.240
  • the rough side of the mountain instead of speaking.
  • 00:24:56.040 --> 00:25:00.100
  • I can't tell you the years
  • 00:25:04.260 --> 00:25:07.140
  • that I've given over to ignorance and singing.
  • 00:25:07.140 --> 00:25:11.190
  • I'm climbing up.
  • 00:25:11.190 --> 00:25:12.190
  • The song made me feel better,
  • 00:25:12.190 --> 00:25:14.180
  • but it didn't change my situation.
  • 00:25:14.180 --> 00:25:17.130
  • I'm doing, that's the part that made me feel better,
  • 00:25:18.270 --> 00:25:22.040
  • my best to make it, oh Lord.
  • 00:25:22.040 --> 00:25:24.140
  • (laughter)
  • 00:25:27.030 --> 00:25:29.230
  • Oh, Lord.
  • 00:25:29.230 --> 00:25:30.180
  • Won't he do it?
  • 00:25:33.280 --> 00:25:35.060
  • Dumb stuff.
  • 00:25:38.020 --> 00:25:38.270
  • He may not come.
  • 00:25:38.270 --> 00:25:40.120
  • Dumb.
  • 00:25:40.120 --> 00:25:41.070
  • Whosoever, so say unto this mountain.
  • 00:25:48.220 --> 00:25:51.240
  • So, let's name 'em.
  • 00:25:52.290 --> 00:25:54.160
  • Let's name 'em.
  • 00:25:57.070 --> 00:25:58.140
  • What's your mountain?
  • 00:26:00.170 --> 00:26:02.090
  • Confusion in your marriage.
  • 00:26:04.050 --> 00:26:06.130
  • No lack.
  • 00:26:07.170 --> 00:26:08.120
  • I mean, lack in areas of your life.
  • 00:26:12.000 --> 00:26:14.120

  • Pornography.

  • What's your mountain?
  • 00:26:22.140 --> 00:26:24.180
  • Turn to your neighbor, say, "It wouldn't be a good time
  • 00:26:24.180 --> 00:26:26.130
  • "to look down after he mentioned pornography."
  • 00:26:26.130 --> 00:26:30.190
  • But let's find out your mountain.
  • 00:26:30.190 --> 00:26:33.100

  • See, the reason why it's still around
