  • 00:01:56.065 --> 00:02:00.203
  • we didn't understand fully wherewe fit, and now I realize that
  • 00:02:00.236 --> 00:02:03.873
  • my dad couldn't fully tell uswhere we fit, because he was
  • 00:02:03.907 --> 00:02:06.676
  • tryin' to figure out wherehe fit the flow that he knew
  • 00:02:06.709 --> 00:02:09.445
  • was ending, and he was becominga stronger flow.
  • 00:02:09.479 --> 00:02:12.282
  • And sometimes when you'rebecoming a stronger flow,
  • 00:02:12.315 --> 00:02:14.484
  • you don't know where people fit.
  • 00:02:14.517 --> 00:02:22.559
  • Yeah, not even your wife,not even your best friend,
  • 00:02:22.592 --> 00:02:28.131
  • not even your children.
  • 00:02:28.164 --> 00:02:30.300
  • I answered the call, I know thatthis is what God has called me
  • 00:02:30.333 --> 00:02:33.236
  • to do, I just didn't know thatit was gonna cost so much
  • 00:02:33.269 --> 00:02:36.439
  • for the flow to end.
  • 00:02:36.472 --> 00:02:42.779
  • Elisha has been with Elijah, heserved him, he took care of him,
  • 00:02:42.812 --> 00:02:47.984
  • he was there when he called firedown from heaven.
  • 00:02:48.017 --> 00:02:51.020

  • 00:02:51.054 --> 00:02:52.722
  • He saw him prophesy.
  • 00:02:52.755 --> 00:02:54.390

  • 00:02:57.527 --> 00:03:00.296
  • This is a different flow.
  • 00:03:00.330 --> 00:03:04.534
  • And it is not lost on me thatin this room, as we stretch
  • 00:03:04.567 --> 00:03:10.406
  • ourselves and prepare to layhold of what God has called us
  • 00:03:10.440 --> 00:03:15.445
  • to really create an impact, thatsome of us are going to have
  • 00:03:15.478 --> 00:03:18.881
  • to have people be in our lives,even if we don't know exactly
  • 00:03:18.915 --> 00:03:22.885

  • 00:03:24.287 --> 00:03:26.623
  • them come, even when we don'tknow where we're going.
  • 00:03:26.656 --> 00:03:29.659
  • Husbands, wives, businessmen,I'm tryin' to flow
  • 00:03:38.001 --> 00:03:44.474
  • in another realm.
  • 00:03:44.507 --> 00:03:46.209
  • I'm tryin' to flowwith more strength.
  • 00:03:46.242 --> 00:03:47.577
  • I'm tryin' to flowwith more focus.
  • 00:03:47.610 --> 00:03:49.078
  • I'm trying to makean impact in my life.
  • 00:03:49.112 --> 00:03:51.447
  • I'm tryin' to make an impact.
  • 00:03:51.481 --> 00:03:52.815
  • I want people to know that I washere, and the only thing
  • 00:03:52.849 --> 00:03:55.852
  • about that is that I just don'tknow where you fit anymore.
  • 00:03:55.885 --> 00:04:03.359
  • Elijah rejects Elishaover and over again.
  • 00:04:03.393 --> 00:04:08.998
  • He says stay in Gilgal,for the Lord is sending me
  • 00:04:09.032 --> 00:04:12.468
  • on to Bethel, and he says no,I'm gonna go wherever you go,
  • 00:04:12.502 --> 00:04:16.072
  • and then they get to Bethel,and he says stay in Bethel,
  • 00:04:16.105 --> 00:04:18.641
  • for I'm going go into Jericho.
  • 00:04:18.675 --> 00:04:20.243
  • He says it over and over again,and I realize that loyalty is
  • 00:04:20.276 --> 00:04:24.614
  • not manipulation, loyalty isa character trait, because
  • 00:04:24.647 --> 00:04:27.784
  • Elisha decided when I was goingto serve you that I was gonna
  • 00:04:27.817 --> 00:04:31.187
  • serve you whether you wereflowing and a direction
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:33.623
  • I understood, or flowingin a way that I didn't fit.
  • 00:04:33.656 --> 00:04:36.693
  • I'm gonna be with you whetheryou like it or not, because
  • 00:04:36.726 --> 00:04:40.229
  • that's who I am and that's whatI'm called to do in your life.
  • 00:04:40.263 --> 00:04:43.866
  • So, even when you don't knowwhere I fit, that's okay,
  • 00:04:43.900 --> 00:04:46.402
  • because I know where I fit.
  • 00:04:46.436 --> 00:04:48.004
  • I'm supposed to be therepraying for you.
  • 00:04:48.037 --> 00:04:50.373
  • I'm supposed to be therecovering for you.
  • 00:04:50.406 --> 00:04:52.575
  • You've been wonderingand waiting for somebody
  • 00:04:52.608 --> 00:04:55.311
  • to tell you where you fit.
  • 00:04:55.345 --> 00:04:56.846
  • God said if you're reallycalled, I won't have to tell you
  • 00:04:56.879 --> 00:04:59.082
  • where you fit, so just be thereanyway.
  • 00:04:59.115 --> 00:05:01.584
  • If you're really called, I'llnever have to tell you that I
  • 00:05:01.617 --> 00:05:04.787
  • need you, you'll see that I needyou before I open my mouth.
  • 00:05:04.821 --> 00:05:08.224
  • Where are my real peoplein this room?
  • 00:05:08.257 --> 00:05:11.227
  • Not the people lookin'for a come up, not the people
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:14.397
  • looking to be seen,the people who are saying
  • 00:05:14.430 --> 00:05:17.934
  • I'm called to you.
  • 00:05:17.967 --> 00:05:24.540
  • Honey, our life is changing,our ministry is growing, I don't
  • 00:05:24.574 --> 00:05:27.610
  • know where I fit, but what I doknow is I'm called to you.
  • 00:05:27.643 --> 00:05:31.214
  • Honey, our business is booming,it's taking off, I don't know
  • 00:05:31.247 --> 00:05:34.884
  • where I fit, but what I do knowis I'm called to you.
  • 00:05:34.917 --> 00:05:37.220
  • I used to be the secretary, nowit doesn't make any sense for me
  • 00:05:37.253 --> 00:05:40.823
  • to be that, but guess what?
  • 00:05:40.857 --> 00:05:42.191
  • I'm still called to you.I am your wife.
  • 00:05:42.225 --> 00:05:44.861
  • I am your husband.
  • 00:05:44.894 --> 00:05:46.362
  • And when God called you,he called all of us.
  • 00:05:46.396 --> 00:05:49.198
  • I will not forget the momentwhen I felt the glory fall
  • 00:05:49.232 --> 00:05:52.969
  • on this marriage,and I will live until I see
  • 00:05:53.002 --> 00:05:56.806
  • the glory fall again.
  • 00:05:56.839 --> 00:06:04.347
  • To my PK's, they weren'trejecting us, they just didn't
  • 00:06:04.380 --> 00:06:12.855
  • know that the flow was gonnachange their rhythm.
  • 00:06:12.889 --> 00:06:19.562
  • I'm trying to heal somethingin this room.
  • 00:06:19.595 --> 00:06:27.069
  • I know what me being hererepresents.
  • 00:06:27.103 --> 00:06:29.038
  • I know why God had me do itin this season.
  • 00:06:29.071 --> 00:06:31.808
  • I know that somebody neededa sign that they weren't gonna
  • 00:06:31.841 --> 00:06:34.644
  • lose their child.
  • 00:06:34.677 --> 00:06:36.012
  • I need somebody--I knew thatsomebody needed help,
  • 00:06:36.045 --> 00:06:38.281
  • because they had been lostin translation and they'd been
  • 00:06:38.314 --> 00:06:40.850
  • trying to help their familiesunderstand that I'm not really
  • 00:06:40.883 --> 00:06:44.287
  • changing, I'm not really tryingto be shady, I'm not trying
  • 00:06:44.320 --> 00:06:47.356
  • to reject you, I just don't knowwho I am in this flow.
  • 00:06:47.390 --> 00:06:51.060
  • I just don't know who I amin this season.
  • 00:06:51.093 --> 00:06:57.166
  • And so, I'm asking those of youwho recognized that the way
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:07:01.404
  • you used to flow was comingto an end, I'm asking you
  • 00:07:01.437 --> 00:07:05.575
  • to let us be there anyway.
  • 00:07:05.608 --> 00:07:10.146
  • I'm asking you to not push usaway, even if you don't know
  • 00:07:10.179 --> 00:07:15.618
  • what we can do, even if youdon't know where we fit,
  • 00:07:15.651 --> 00:07:18.588
  • I'm asking that you just allowus to be along on the journey.
  • 00:07:18.621 --> 00:07:23.726
  • And I'm asking those of youwho want the attention
  • 00:07:23.759 --> 00:07:27.563
  • and the acknowledgment for beingcalled to recognize
  • 00:07:27.597 --> 00:07:31.100
  • that it's not about that anyway.
  • 00:07:31.133 --> 00:07:34.437
  • That what it's really about it'smaking sure that when they look
  • 00:07:34.470 --> 00:07:38.407
  • over beside themselves that theysee somebody who could be
  • 00:07:38.441 --> 00:07:43.446
  • with them, whether they reachthat next level of flow or not.
  • 00:07:43.479 --> 00:07:48.618
  • That it's important that theylook over and see someone
  • 00:07:48.651 --> 00:07:51.954
  • who's not judging the pace inwhich they're flowing,
  • 00:07:51.988 --> 00:07:54.290
  • because they recognize just howmuch strength it took for them
  • 00:07:54.323 --> 00:07:57.126
  • to flow in the first place.
  • 00:07:57.159 --> 00:08:02.765
  • It is the end of the flow.
  • 00:08:02.798 --> 00:08:04.967
  • You will know when you arecoming to the end of a flow when
  • 00:08:05.001 --> 00:08:08.371
  • you experience what Elijah isexperiencing.
  • 00:08:08.404 --> 00:08:12.308
  • He's got Elisha pulling on him,and he's got heaven
  • 00:08:12.341 --> 00:08:19.415
  • pulling him up.
  • 00:08:19.448 --> 00:08:27.623
  • He's got one thing pulling himthis way, and he's got
  • 00:08:27.657 --> 00:08:36.599
  • another thing--people want to bepulled up, but they don't want
  • 00:08:36.632 --> 00:08:38.601
  • to be pulled on.
  • 00:08:38.634 --> 00:08:40.036
  • So, I had to tell you that ifyou're not being pulled on,
  • 00:08:40.069 --> 00:08:42.605
  • then don't worry about beingpulled up, 'cause you're not
  • 00:08:42.638 --> 00:08:45.274
  • doing enough on this levelfor us to even pull you up.
  • 00:08:45.308 --> 00:08:52.949
  • I'm being pulled on andI'm being pulled up
  • 00:08:52.982 --> 00:08:55.952
  • at the same time.
  • 00:08:55.985 --> 00:08:57.620
  • That's how I know it's timefor me to go to the next level,
  • 00:08:57.653 --> 00:09:00.389
  • 'cause I feel like I can't doenough to get to the next level,
  • 00:09:00.423 --> 00:09:04.393
  • so God has to pull me up to giveme more width in more depth,
  • 00:09:04.427 --> 00:09:07.964
  • so that I can lay hold and haveresources to take care
  • 00:09:07.997 --> 00:09:11.634
  • of what's pulling on me.
  • 00:09:11.667 --> 00:09:15.605
  • You're supposed to be beingpulled on, that's a part of it.
  • 00:09:15.638 --> 00:09:18.808
  • I hope that's validationand confirmation for somebody,
  • 00:09:18.841 --> 00:09:22.211
  • that you are supposed to bebeing pulled on and
  • 00:09:22.244 --> 00:09:24.647
  • pulled up at the same time.
  • 00:09:24.680 --> 00:09:32.488
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,'cause if God is gonna reach
  • 00:09:32.521 --> 00:09:38.327
  • down and pull you up, I needto know that there's enough
  • 00:09:38.361 --> 00:09:41.230
  • weight on you that when I pullyou up to the next level,
  • 00:09:41.263 --> 00:09:44.500
  • you're going to be ableto stay there.
  • 00:09:44.533 --> 00:09:47.503
  • All these lightweight, canI call them lightweights?
  • 00:09:47.536 --> 00:09:49.672
  • All these lightweight saintswant to put out one book
  • 00:09:49.705 --> 00:09:53.809
  • and then wanna be pulled up.
  • 00:09:53.843 --> 00:09:55.678
  • I want you put out one bookthat nobody buys.
  • 00:09:55.711 --> 00:09:59.749
  • I want you to open up a churchand wonder if anybody is coming.
  • 00:09:59.782 --> 00:10:02.752
  • And I want to pull you up whenyou have so much weight on you
  • 00:10:02.785 --> 00:10:07.289
  • that you wonder if you shouldhave even started
  • 00:10:07.323 --> 00:10:10.126
  • in the first place.
  • 00:10:10.159 --> 00:10:11.794
  • You wanna talk about effortto impact, pull on me, God,
  • 00:10:11.827 --> 00:10:15.297
  • so you can pull me up.
  • 00:10:15.331 --> 00:10:22.038
  • 'Cause if you pull on me, I knowyou're going to pull something
  • 00:10:22.071 --> 00:10:25.775
  • out of me.
  • 00:10:25.808 --> 00:10:27.109
  • And when you pull that thingout of me, I know it's going
  • 00:10:27.143 --> 00:10:29.645
  • to show you that I can bepulled up again.
  • 00:10:29.679 --> 00:10:32.815

  • 00:13:53.849 --> 00:14:02.024
  • to come with him, and to servehim, even when he didn't know
  • 00:14:02.057 --> 00:14:06.462
  • exactly how to be served.
  • 00:14:06.495 --> 00:14:10.666
  • And so, he allowed him to followhim as he went, as he flowed
  • 00:14:10.699 --> 00:14:17.239
  • to this journey to glory.
  • 00:14:17.273 --> 00:14:20.342
  • And I love this, because they'regoing back and forth,
  • 00:14:20.376 --> 00:14:23.145
  • and the sons of the prophet knowthat he's going to be taken
  • 00:14:23.178 --> 00:14:26.048
  • away, and yet they're stillflowing, and yet Elisha
  • 00:14:26.081 --> 00:14:29.618
  • is still serving.
  • 00:14:29.652 --> 00:14:31.053

  • 00:14:32.988 --> 00:14:35.658

  • I just wanted you to know thatyou weren't there by yourself.
  • 00:14:50.539 --> 00:14:53.409
  • And so, Elisha serves Elijah,even though they're headed
  • 00:14:53.442 --> 00:14:58.047

  • 00:14:58.080 --> 00:14:59.381

  • 00:15:16.832 --> 00:15:19.802
  • there looking at him as hejourneys to the Jordan.

  • 00:15:25.708 --> 00:15:30.813
  • it with an audience.
  • 00:15:30.846 --> 00:15:37.286
  • He has to do it with peoplewatching, and wondering,
  • 00:15:37.319 --> 00:15:42.424

  • 00:21:36.511 --> 00:21:38.680
  • I'm going back more anointedthan I was.
  • 00:21:38.714 --> 00:21:41.650
  • How could you become moreanointed?
  • 00:21:41.683 --> 00:21:43.919
  • Because I was a single riverthat messed around
  • 00:21:43.952 --> 00:21:46.321
  • and got with a stronger river,and the anointing that is
  • 00:21:46.355 --> 00:21:50.826
  • on Bishop Jakes's life felldown onto my life, yeah.
  • 00:21:50.859 --> 00:22:00.869
  • Elijah performed a lotof miracles, most of them
  • 00:22:20.322 --> 00:22:25.694
  • involved prophesying and callingfire down from Heaven.
  • 00:22:25.727 --> 00:22:32.834
  • He helped the widow to continueeating at a time that
  • 00:22:32.868 --> 00:22:36.304
  • she thought she'd lost it all.
  • 00:22:36.338 --> 00:22:37.806
  • He resurrected a boy's life.
  • 00:22:37.839 --> 00:22:42.444
  • But this miracle, in partingthe Jordan River, is unique,
  • 00:22:42.477 --> 00:22:48.049
  • because this miracle involvedhis hands and his mantle.
  • 00:22:48.083 --> 00:22:55.791
  • I hear God saying it's timefor you to get your hands dirty.
  • 00:22:55.824 --> 00:23:01.596
  • That if you're gonna breakthe flow, you're going to have
  • 00:23:01.630 --> 00:23:05.000
  • to be willing to not just havethat mantle on you, but to use
  • 00:23:05.033 --> 00:23:08.537
  • that mantle to break somethingoff of your community,
  • 00:23:08.570 --> 00:23:12.607
  • off of your family, off of yourbusinesses, off of your
  • 00:23:12.641 --> 00:23:15.644
  • children, off of your marriages.
  • 00:23:15.677 --> 00:23:23.051
  • He took the mantle and he rolledit up, and he struck, he struck,
  • 00:23:23.084 --> 00:23:32.594
  • he struck something.
  • 00:23:32.627 --> 00:23:35.430
  • My daddy has given his wholelife to ministry,
  • 00:23:35.464 --> 00:23:40.135
  • but he was breaking the flow.
  • 00:23:40.168 --> 00:23:42.003
  • He was breaking the flow.
  • 00:23:42.170 --> 00:23:44.005
  • He was breaking the flow.
  • 00:23:44.172 --> 00:23:46.007
  • He was breaking the flow.
  • 00:23:46.274 --> 00:23:48.009
  • And he was trying to show youhow to break the flow, too,
  • 00:23:48.043 --> 00:23:51.847
  • so that when you grabthe mantle, and you rolled it
  • 00:23:51.880 --> 00:23:54.916
  • up, you could strikeat something.
  • 00:23:54.950 --> 00:23:56.818
  • Don't let my daddy put thisconference on and for you to go
  • 00:23:56.852 --> 00:24:00.121
  • back and let that Jordan Riverkeeps flowing in your life when
  • 00:24:00.155 --> 00:24:03.625
  • you know the Promised Land ison the other side of it.
  • 00:24:03.658 --> 00:24:06.595
  • The Promised Land, as Joshua,the Promised Land was
  • 00:24:06.628 --> 00:24:10.165
  • on the other side of the Jordanbeing parted.
  • 00:24:10.198 --> 00:24:12.868
  • When my Savior steppedinto the Jordan to be baptized,
  • 00:24:12.901 --> 00:24:16.838
  • heaven parted open,and God said this is my Son
  • 00:24:16.872 --> 00:24:20.609
  • in whom I am well pleased.
  • 00:24:20.642 --> 00:24:22.644
  • He broke the flowuntil the heavens opened,
  • 00:24:22.677 --> 00:24:24.779
  • and that's all I want youto know in this room.
  • 00:24:24.813 --> 00:24:27.549
  • Is that you can break the flowuntil heaven opens up
  • 00:24:27.582 --> 00:24:30.952
  • over your ministry.
  • 00:24:30.986 --> 00:24:32.587
  • Until heaven opens upover your life.
  • 00:24:32.621 --> 00:24:35.090
  • I came to break the flow.
  • 00:24:35.123 --> 00:24:37.025
  • God, here is my anointing,and here are my hands.
  • 00:24:37.058 --> 00:24:40.896
  • God, show me how to makean effort to impact, because
  • 00:24:40.929 --> 00:24:44.799
  • I need heaven open over my life.
  • 00:24:44.833 --> 00:24:53.241
  • Break the flow.
  • 00:24:53.275 --> 00:24:56.077
  • Break the flow.
  • 00:24:56.111 --> 00:24:57.512
  • You're anointed to do it.
  • 00:24:57.546 --> 00:24:59.614
  • You were anointed when youregistered, but now you have
  • 00:24:59.648 --> 00:25:02.918
  • the tools necessary to stopthat thing from flowing
  • 00:25:02.951 --> 00:25:07.088
  • and blocking your path.
  • 00:25:07.122 --> 00:25:08.757
  • I hear God saying the only thingthat is stopping you is the fact
  • 00:25:08.790 --> 00:25:11.960
  • that you have not struckthe water.
  • 00:25:11.993 --> 00:25:14.262
  • You have not given ityour best shot.
  • 00:25:14.296 --> 00:25:16.798
  • But Satan, I rebuke you.
  • 00:25:16.831 --> 00:25:18.833
  • You have no powerover this house.
  • 00:25:18.867 --> 00:25:22.337
  • You have no powerover this ministry.
  • 00:25:22.370 --> 00:25:25.874
  • I wish somebody would startgoing to war with the devil
  • 00:25:25.907 --> 00:25:30.045
  • like you're not afraid of hisplots and you're not afraid
  • 00:25:30.078 --> 00:25:33.582

  • I wish somebody believed thatthey were so anointed that
  • 00:25:35.016 --> 00:25:38.286
  • they could pull a prison celloff of their child,
  • 00:25:38.320 --> 00:25:41.790
  • that they could break addictionoff of their child,
  • 00:25:41.823 --> 00:25:45.126
