  • - Serita Jakes: Coming up on,
  • 00:00:08.060 --> 00:00:09.050
  • "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.050 --> 00:00:10.130
  • - Bishop Jakes: If you push
  • 00:00:10.130 --> 00:00:11.050
  • all your enemies away, you're
  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:12.230
  • pushing your destiny away,
  • 00:00:12.230 --> 00:00:15.210
  • because every David needs
  • 00:00:15.210 --> 00:00:17.060
  • a Goliath.
  • 00:00:17.060 --> 00:00:18.030
  • The bridge to your destiny is
  • 00:00:18.030 --> 00:00:21.030
  • going to come through
  • 00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:22.190
  • your enemy.
  • 00:00:22.190 --> 00:00:23.210
  • If you are after God's heart,
  • 00:00:23.210 --> 00:00:25.270
  • he will promote you, not because
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:28.110
  • of your degree, but because
  • 00:00:28.110 --> 00:00:31.000
  • you are after his heart.
  • 00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:33.100
  • When your heart is toward God,
  • 00:00:33.100 --> 00:00:36.090
  • he will make your enemies
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:38.250
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:53.070 --> 00:00:55.110
  • - Pastor Cora Jakes-Coleman:
  • 00:00:59.060 --> 00:00:59.260
  • Hello, I'm Pastor Cora
  • 00:00:59.260 --> 00:01:01.050
  • Jakes-Coleman, and this is "The
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:02.270
  • Potter's Touch."
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:04.010
  • This month, my father has been
  • 00:01:04.010 --> 00:01:05.150
  • preaching a series called,
  • 00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:07.020
  • "The Pacemaker."
  • 00:01:07.020 --> 00:01:08.060
  • This third installment begins
  • 00:01:08.060 --> 00:01:09.270
  • with Acts chapter 13.
  • 00:01:09.270 --> 00:01:12.010
  • As you will learn today,
  • 00:01:12.010 --> 00:01:13.120
  • in order to get to your destiny,
  • 00:01:13.120 --> 00:01:15.010
  • - Bishop Jakes: I don't believe
  • 00:01:24.220 --> 00:01:25.190
  • that David was out there taking
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:27.160
  • care of sheep, saying, "You
  • 00:01:27.160 --> 00:01:29.080
  • know, I don't have no business
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:30.080
  • out here.
  • 00:01:30.080 --> 00:01:31.090
  • I should be king.
  • 00:01:31.090 --> 00:01:32.250
  • They need to acknowledge who I
  • 00:01:32.250 --> 00:01:34.160
  • am.
  • 00:01:34.160 --> 00:01:35.110
  • They need to recognize."
  • 00:01:35.110 --> 00:01:36.250
  • It was not self-promotion.
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:38.230
  • It was not self-aggrandizement.
  • 00:01:38.230 --> 00:01:41.040
  • He had no idea that his destiny
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:44.070
  • was going to be what it ended up
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:46.050
  • being.
  • 00:01:46.050 --> 00:01:46.290
  • I can be honest, I would have
  • 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:48.160
  • been shocked to know that I
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:50.140
  • would end up here.
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:51.220
  • I didn't plan to be here.
  • 00:01:51.220 --> 00:01:53.190
  • I didn't expect to be here.
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:55.260
  • I didn't feel like I deserved to
  • 00:01:55.260 --> 00:01:57.170
  • be here.
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:01:58.270
  • I would--oh no, but a rock and a
  • 00:01:58.290 --> 00:02:02.010
  • rhythm, a rock and a rhythm, a
  • 00:02:02.010 --> 00:02:04.180
  • rock and a rhythm.
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:06.050
  • I'm telling you this because
  • 00:02:06.050 --> 00:02:07.150
  • some of the things you thought
  • 00:02:07.150 --> 00:02:08.210
  • were gonna happen in your life
  • 00:02:08.210 --> 00:02:10.090
  • are not gonna happen in your
  • 00:02:10.090 --> 00:02:11.210
  • life, because it was witchcraft
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:14.000
  • in your life trying to control
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:15.260
  • the outcome of your life.
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:17.180
  • And some of the things that you
  • 00:02:17.180 --> 00:02:18.180
  • never expected to receive in all
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:21.130
  • of your life, God has in store
  • 00:02:21.130 --> 00:02:23.220
  • for you.
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:24.130
  • Let me get down, 'cause I gotta
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:25.260
  • prove it.
  • 00:02:25.260 --> 00:02:26.170
  • I feel you kinda listening at
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:27.250
  • me, I'm gonna break it on down.
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:29.200
  • God said, "Your eyes have not
  • 00:02:29.200 --> 00:02:32.020
  • seen, your ears have not heard,
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:37.150
  • neither have entered into the
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:39.000
  • heart of man the things that God
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:41.140
  • has in store for you."
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:43.070
  • So, it's not what you conjured
  • 00:02:43.070 --> 00:02:45.010
  • up, it's not what you tried to
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:47.010
  • make happen, it's not why you
  • 00:02:47.010 --> 00:02:49.010
  • tried to manipulate people, and
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:51.020
  • tried to get your daughter to
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:52.160
  • marry my son, and your son to
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:54.130
  • marry my daughter.
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:55.160
  • Stop the witchcraft, get out of
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:57.120
  • the way, your eyes have not
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:59.170
  • seen, your ears have not heard,
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:02.180
  • neither has it entered into your
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:03.290
  • heart the things that God has in
  • 00:03:03.290 --> 00:03:06.170
  • store for them that love him.
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:10.050
  • It's just gonna happen because
  • 00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:14.010
  • you're the son of Jesse.
  • 00:03:15.050 --> 00:03:18.050
  • Number one, providence, because
  • 00:03:18.050 --> 00:03:20.260
  • you're the son of Jesse.
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:24.110
  • I didn't just start working on
  • 00:03:24.110 --> 00:03:25.220
  • I sent your great, great
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:32.150
  • grandmother Naomi to Moab.
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:40.000
  • I designed for Naomi to lose her
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:43.150
  • son.
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:47.220
  • I meant for her to lose her son,
  • 00:03:49.140 --> 00:03:52.140
  • both of them, and her husband,
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:57.210
  • so that in bitterness, she would
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:03:59.080
  • give up on Moab and move back to
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:03.050
  • Bethlehem.
  • 00:04:03.050 --> 00:04:05.190
  • And her grieving daughter-in-law
  • 00:04:05.190 --> 00:04:07.250
  • would follow her home.
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:10.180
  • Orpah didn't go because she
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:13.050
  • Oh, I love preaching to you,
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:22.270
  • 'cause you get it.
  • 00:04:22.270 --> 00:04:23.290
  • You get it so quick.
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:25.080
  • You understand that all that
  • 00:04:25.080 --> 00:04:27.030
  • And all that stayed couldn't
  • 00:04:35.210 --> 00:04:37.210
  • leave.
  • 00:04:37.210 --> 00:04:39.270
  • [laughing]
  • 00:04:39.270 --> 00:04:41.260
  • Because God doesn't just start
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:44.000
  • setting it up when you start
  • 00:04:44.000 --> 00:04:45.130
  • praying.
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.120
  • Before you have any idea what is
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:48.270
  • going on--oh, God, do you hear?
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:53.010
  • Naomi had no idea that she was
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:56.180
  • being blessed while she was
  • 00:04:56.180 --> 00:04:58.250
  • being broken, that her grieving,
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:01.240
  • broken heart and the bitterness
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:04.060
  • in her spirit was a part of a
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:06.160
  • greater thing, that God meant
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:09.030
  • for her to be hurt.
  • 00:05:09.030 --> 00:05:10.140
  • He meant for her to give up on
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:11.210
  • Moab.
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:12.180
  • He meant for her to move out of
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:13.240
  • her house.
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:14.220
  • He meant for her to feel
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:15.220
  • dejected and rejected and go
  • 00:05:15.220 --> 00:05:17.190
  • home.
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:18.140
  • He meant for Orpah to say, "I'm
  • 00:05:18.140 --> 00:05:20.200
  • not going with you."
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:22.040
  • He meant for Ruth to fall so in
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:24.040
  • love with her that she couldn't
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:25.230
  • leave her, and Ruth said, "Thy
  • 00:05:25.230 --> 00:05:27.120
  • God shall be my God and thy
  • 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:28.270
  • people shall be my people.
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:30.200
  • And where thou dwellest I will
  • 00:05:30.200 --> 00:05:32.030
  • dwell, and where thou dieth, I
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:34.010
  • shall die."
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:35.030
  • That kind of love doesn't just
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.280
  • And so, God is setting up the
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:43.030
  • stage.
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:43.270
  • He lets us know this is the
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:44.270
  • criteria for the king's
  • 00:05:44.270 --> 00:05:46.070
  • selection.
  • 00:05:46.070 --> 00:05:47.060
  • You are the son of Jesse.
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:48.290
  • I didn't just start this with
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:50.090
  • you.
  • 00:05:50.170 --> 00:05:53.170
  • This did not begin with you,
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:58.100
  • this started before you got
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:05:59.190
  • here.
  • 00:05:59.190 --> 00:06:01.200
  • This started before your
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:02.290
  • grandmother met your
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.050
  • grandfather.
  • 00:06:04.050 --> 00:06:05.250
  • God was getting you ready for
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:07.090
  • what's about to happen in your
  • 00:06:07.090 --> 00:06:09.060
  • life.
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:09.270
  • Do you understand what I'm
  • 00:06:09.270 --> 00:06:10.190
  • saying?
  • 00:06:10.190 --> 00:06:11.190
  • It didn't just start with you.
  • 00:06:11.190 --> 00:06:14.180
  • Number two, he says I found a
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:17.120
  • man that is after my heart.
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:20.180
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:06:20.180 --> 00:06:22.230
  • I found a man that is after my
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:25.030
  • heart.
  • 00:06:25.030 --> 00:06:25.250
  • Now, there has been a lot of
  • 00:06:25.250 --> 00:06:26.180
  • confusion about this Scripture,
  • 00:06:26.180 --> 00:06:28.050
  • because people say, "How could
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.170
  • David be after God's heart
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:32.020
  • because David had some issues?"
  • 00:06:33.230 --> 00:06:36.230
  • I mean, I'm not trying to
  • 00:06:36.230 --> 00:06:37.210
  • castigate him, or run his name
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:39.050
  • down, but David had some issues.
  • 00:06:39.180 --> 00:06:42.180
  • And church people don't
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:44.120
  • understand this, but everybody
  • 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:46.190
  • who I've ever met who was
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:48.270
  • greatly gifted or greatly
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:50.010
  • anointed was also greatly
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:52.020
  • People don't tell you stuff like
  • 00:06:57.000 --> 00:06:58.050
  • that, 'cause that don't sound
  • 00:06:58.050 --> 00:06:59.140
  • good, but that's how it is.
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:01.240
  • They're greatly conflicted.
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:02.280
  • It's never a straight line.
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:05.060
  • In writing novels about
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:06.170
  • character development, they
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.040
  • teach you to never write a
  • 00:07:08.040 --> 00:07:09.290
  • character that's all good or all
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:11.170
  • bad, because it's not a
  • 00:07:11.170 --> 00:07:12.180
  • reflection of reality.
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:15.230
  • Good people have bad issues, bad
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:17.060
  • people have good sides.
  • 00:07:17.060 --> 00:07:19.240
  • "I don't understand how she
  • 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:20.210
  • could stay with him."
  • 00:07:20.210 --> 00:07:21.240
  • Stop thinking that there are
  • 00:07:27.060 --> 00:07:28.160
  • good people and bad people,
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:30.160
  • they're just people.
  • 00:07:30.160 --> 00:07:32.270
  • They're just people.
  • 00:07:32.270 --> 00:07:34.030
  • They're just people.
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:35.040
  • They're just people.
  • 00:07:35.040 --> 00:07:36.040
  • They're just people.
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:37.090
  • And when God, one day God says,
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:38.270
  • "I found a man after my own
  • 00:07:38.270 --> 00:07:40.030
  • heart," people freak out because
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:42.040
  • the man that he found that was
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:43.140
  • after his own heart ended up
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:45.230
  • sleeping with Uriah's wife.
  • 00:07:45.290 --> 00:07:48.290
  • The man who was after God's own
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:50.160
  • heart slept with Uriah's wife.
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:52.130
  • The man who was after God's own
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:53.240
  • heart killed Uriah.
  • 00:07:54.010 --> 00:07:57.010
  • Set him up and had him murdered,
  • 00:07:57.010 --> 00:07:59.000
  • and it just burns your religious
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:08:00.260
  • ears to hear that God could love
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:04.110
  • somebody so nasty.
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:07.210
  • But I don't know why it burns
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:08.190
  • He loved your little filthy
  • 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:18.050
  • self.
  • 00:08:18.050 --> 00:08:19.140
  • I don't understand why you need
  • 00:08:19.140 --> 00:08:21.080
  • to read it in the Greek and the
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:23.010
  • Hebrew.
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:24.050
  • I don't understand why you got
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:25.140
  • grace for your situation and no
  • 00:08:25.140 --> 00:08:28.110
  • I just don't understand it.
  • 00:08:33.160 --> 00:08:34.280
  • It just confuses me.
  • 00:08:35.090 --> 00:08:38.090
  • And he didn't stumble into God.
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:40.040
  • God searched him out.
  • 00:08:40.040 --> 00:08:42.270
  • "I have found me a man who is
  • 00:08:43.050 --> 00:08:46.050
  • after my heart," and besides,
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:48.170
  • the text doesn't mean that David
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:50.280
  • is a pattern of God's heart.
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:57.000
  • First of all, it implies to us
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:59.150
  • He got a beat like mine.
  • 00:09:08.080 --> 00:09:11.080
  • He's passionate like me.
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:15.050
  • I have found a man who is after
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:18.190
  • my heart.
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:21.010
  • He's chasing my heart.
  • 00:09:21.250 --> 00:09:24.250
  • I found a man who's writing me
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:26.250
  • poetry and singing me songs on
  • 00:09:27.270 --> 00:09:30.270
  • the mountaintops.
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:33.010
  • I found a man who's dating me
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:35.020
  • and dancing on the hills.
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:36.180
  • See, David would be up in the
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:37.190
  • hills and in the mountaintop.
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:39.170
  • Thou art my God
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:42.100
  • I love you, Lord
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:44.230
  • I bless your name
  • 00:09:44.230 --> 00:09:46.130
  • And God said, "I found him, he's
  • 00:09:46.130 --> 00:09:47.220
  • after me.
  • 00:09:47.220 --> 00:09:48.210
  • He's chasing me.
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:49.240
  • He's wooing me.
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:51.000
  • He's flirting with me.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:52.130
  • He keeps saying sweet stuff to
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:54.010
  • me.
  • 00:09:54.010 --> 00:09:54.270
  • I have found a man who is after
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:57.060
  • my heart.
  • 00:09:57.060 --> 00:09:58.080
  • I'm gonna make him king because
  • 00:09:58.080 --> 00:10:00.250
  • he praises me.
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:02.110
  • He won't stop blessing my name.
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:04.230
  • He won't stop lifting me up.
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:06.280
  • He won't stop giving me the
  • 00:10:06.280 --> 00:10:08.040
  • glory.
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:09.040
  • I have found a man who is after
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:11.180
  • my heart."
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:12.160
  • That's why you don't want to be
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:14.130
  • a stiff-necked brother who won't
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:17.090
  • open his mouth, or clap
  • 00:10:17.090 --> 00:10:19.160
  • his hands, or praise the Lord,
  • 00:10:19.160 --> 00:10:22.110
  • because if you are after God's
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:24.170
  • heart, he will promote you, not
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:27.150
  • because of your degree, but
  • 00:10:27.150 --> 00:10:29.160
  • Let me go on.
  • 00:10:43.050 --> 00:10:43.250
  • The next thing that God says,
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:45.000
  • God says--the third thing God
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:47.140
  • says, he will do whatever I want
  • 00:10:47.200 --> 00:10:50.200
  • him to do.
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:55.080
  • I chose him because he won't
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:56.100
  • fight me.
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:59.260
  • I chose him because he won't
  • 00:10:59.260 --> 00:11:00.240
  • fight me.
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:03.040
  • I chose him because he'll obey
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:04.080
  • me.
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:06.060
  • I chose him because he'll submit
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:07.050
  • to me.
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:09.110
  • He will do whatever I want him
  • 00:11:09.110 --> 00:11:10.180
  • to do.
  • 00:11:10.180 --> 00:11:12.190
  • I can send him anywhere.
  • 00:11:12.190 --> 00:11:15.080
  • I can do anything in his life.
  • 00:11:15.080 --> 00:11:17.250
  • I chose him because he's pliable
  • 00:11:17.250 --> 00:11:19.210
  • in my hands.
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:21.010
  • I chose him because he's clay.
  • 00:11:21.010 --> 00:11:23.200
  • I'm the potter, he's the clay.
  • 00:11:23.200 --> 00:11:26.020
  • I can shape him.
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:28.020
  • I can break him.
  • 00:11:28.020 --> 00:11:30.220
  • He will do whatever I want him
  • 00:11:30.220 --> 00:11:31.290
  • to do.
  • 00:11:31.290 --> 00:11:34.090
  • Somebody throw your hands up and
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:35.030
  • When he called me to preach, I
  • 00:11:42.160 --> 00:11:43.140
  • told him, I said, "Lord, you can
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:45.020
  • find people that are more able,
  • 00:11:45.020 --> 00:11:47.110
  • but you will find nobody more
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:48.230
  • willing."
  • 00:11:49.290 --> 00:11:52.290
  • I told him that 40 years ago, I
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:54.060
  • said, "I'm willing, I'm just
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:56.100
  • willing.
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:11:57.290
  • I'm not able, I'm willing.
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:01.180
  • I don't know why you want me,
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:02.180
  • but I'm willing.
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:04.150
  • I'm not qualified, but I'm
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:05.140
  • willing," and I said, "If you'll
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:07.240
  • give me your able, I'll give you
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:11.220
  • my willing."
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:15.120
  • It's bad to be stubborn.
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:19.070
  • You miss opportunities being
  • 00:12:19.070 --> 00:12:20.140
  • stubborn.
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:22.060
  • You get passed over being
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:23.070
  • stubborn.
  • 00:12:23.070 --> 00:12:24.230
  • Why should God wrestle with you
  • 00:12:24.230 --> 00:12:27.130
  • to get you to do something that
  • 00:12:27.130 --> 00:12:29.100
  • And then, you become a hater of
  • 00:12:33.290 --> 00:12:35.240
  • her, because she's doing what
  • 00:12:35.240 --> 00:12:38.160
  • you could have done, but you
  • 00:12:38.160 --> 00:12:40.140
  • were too stubborn.
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:41.280
  • You was a strong woman.
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:43.240
  • No, you was a stupid woman.
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.130
  • You missed an opportunity to
  • 00:12:45.130 --> 00:12:47.190
  • step into your destiny.
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:49.120
  • Sometimes being tough is not a
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:51.110
  • blessing.
  • 00:12:51.110 --> 00:12:53.060
  • Sometimes being tough is not a
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:54.210
  • blessing.
  • 00:12:54.210 --> 00:12:55.190
  • He said, "I made David king
  • 00:12:55.190 --> 00:12:57.080
  • - male: I follow him on
  • 00:13:06.120 --> 00:13:06.270
  • YouTube, on Twitter, everywhere.
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:08.070
  • I'm always listening to his
  • 00:13:08.070 --> 00:13:09.050
  • tapes, and it really is a
  • 00:13:09.050 --> 00:13:10.180
  • privilege.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:11.140
  • - male: He just has to
  • 00:13:11.140 --> 00:13:12.020
  • continue, because we need some
  • 00:13:12.020 --> 00:13:13.210
  • more T.D. Jakes.
  • 00:13:13.210 --> 00:13:15.080
  • - female: Please don't stop.
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:16.080
  • Whatever you do, keep doing it,
  • 00:13:16.080 --> 00:13:17.270
  • because you have blessed and
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:18.290
  • touched lives of many people
  • 00:13:18.290 --> 00:13:20.170
  • - Bishop Jakes: Anything

  • you don't engage in,

  • you can't change.
  • 00:13:32.020 --> 00:13:35.020
  • And what I wanna do is be in
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:37.050
  • the room where the discussions
  • 00:13:37.050 --> 00:13:39.180
  • - Bishop Jakes: Number four,

  • "I made him king because
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:15.010
  • he's got Jesus in his legacy."
  • 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:21.120
  • When I--this is what I want you
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:23.000
  • to get.
  • 00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:25.070
  • "When I move David from

  • the sheepfold to the palace,
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:32.030
  • See, Jesus is David's great,
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:42.220
  • great, great, great, great,
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:44.020
  • great grandchild, and even
  • 00:14:48.120 --> 00:14:51.120
  • though Jesus was born in a barn,

  • his destiny wasn't to be sheep.
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:59.120
  • David moved from the sheep field
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:02.290
  • into the palace, so that when
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:06.080
  • Jesus said, "I am the Son of
  • 00:15:06.080 --> 00:15:07.200
  • David," it would have a royal
  • 00:15:07.200 --> 00:15:09.240
  • ring to it.
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:12.060
  • He moved the whole family to the
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:14.010
  • throne to start a dynasty for a

  • You with me?

  • You with me?
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:30.070
  • Now, now, I want you to see

  • this.
  • 00:15:32.120 --> 00:15:35.120
  • You cannot bridge where you are

  • without finding your battle.
  • 00:15:44.170 --> 00:15:47.170
  • Your battle is your bridge.
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:54.040
  • It wasn't that David attended

  • the right parties, it wasn't
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:56.060
  • that he had the right business

  • out and got him a Brioni suit

  • that he couldn't pay for, so

  • 00:16:35.060 --> 00:16:38.060
  • Goliath is the enemy that
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:40.090
  • David's destiny had been waiting
  • 00:16:40.090 --> 00:16:42.070
  • on.
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:45.180
  • Something big enough to fight.
  • 00:16:45.180 --> 00:16:48.060
  • Something bad enough to fight.
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:50.250
  • Something that you had to fight
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:51.280
  • in front of everybody.
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:54.170
  • This isn't a secret battle, this
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:55.260
  • is a public fight.
  • 00:16:55.260 --> 00:16:58.110
  • This is a dog fight and
  • 00:16:58.110 --> 00:16:59.200
  • everybody's talking about you,
  • 00:16:59.200 --> 00:17:01.180
  • and everybody can see you.
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:03.140
  • Oh, Goliath, they would have
  • 00:17:03.140 --> 00:17:05.140
  • never been talking about David
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:07.020
  • if it wasn't for Goliath.
  • 00:17:07.020 --> 00:17:09.220
  • Before the day was over,
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:10.250
  • everybody was talking about
  • 00:17:10.250 --> 00:17:12.010
  • David because of Goliath.
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:17.170
  • God will use your enemies as a
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:21.070
  • footstool.
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:26.010
  • So, if you push all your enemies
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:27.230
  • away, you're pushing your
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:30.050
  • destiny away, because every
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:33.020
  • David needs a Goliath.
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:36.000
  • The bridge to your destiny is
  • 00:17:36.080 --> 00:17:39.080
  • going to come through your
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:40.220
  • enemy.
  • 00:17:42.190 --> 00:17:45.190
  • You'll know you're ready for the
  • 00:17:45.190 --> 00:17:47.190
  • next stage when Goliath comes.
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:52.150
  • Goliath is the usher to the next
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:54.170
  • dimension.
  • 00:17:54.270 --> 00:17:57.270
  • When you find your Goliath,
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:17:59.220
  • you're gonna step into your
  • 00:17:59.220 --> 00:18:01.050
  • kingdom.
  • 00:18:01.290 --> 00:18:04.290
  • And here comes David down there
  • 00:18:04.290 --> 00:18:06.100
  • to the battlefield with
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:07.190
  • inadequate equipment.
  • 00:18:11.110 --> 00:18:14.110
  • He doesn't have everything he
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:15.130
  • All David had was a rock.
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:34.220
  • Now, he needed a sword, he
  • 00:18:35.200 --> 00:18:38.200
  • didn't have a sword.
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:41.100
  • Saul tried to give him a sword.
  • 00:18:41.200 --> 00:18:44.200
  • He wouldn't take Saul's sword.
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:47.230
  • He ran down there with nothing
  • 00:18:47.230 --> 00:18:49.040
  • but a rock.
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:51.080
  • He threw what he had, even
  • 00:18:51.080 --> 00:18:53.110
  • though it wasn't enough.
  • 00:18:53.110 --> 00:18:56.090
  • It was enough to get it started.
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:59.110
  • You might not have enough money
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:00.160
  • See, you gotta be a little bit
  • 00:19:12.250 --> 00:19:15.070
  • crazy to catch the rhythm of
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:16.250
  • God, to get in his pace.
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:19.270
  • I threw what I had at this
  • 00:19:19.270 --> 00:19:21.090
  • building.
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:23.130
  • Timberland, I threw what I had
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:24.120
  • at this building.
  • 00:19:24.120 --> 00:19:25.230
  • It wasn't enough.
  • 00:19:25.230 --> 00:19:27.210
  • No banks would give us no money.
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:30.110
  • I threw what I had, a few
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:32.090
  • million dollars.
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:33.090
  • I threw it at the building, we
  • 00:19:33.090 --> 00:19:34.150
  • dug out the foundation, got
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:36.180
  • everything ready, and all the
  • 00:19:36.180 --> 00:19:38.210
  • banks that were talking to us
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:40.050
  • said no.
  • 00:19:40.050 --> 00:19:42.020
  • And I drove past it every week
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.160
  • and told God, "I ain't worried
  • 00:19:43.160 --> 00:19:44.180
  • about it."
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:47.050
  • I drove right past, I told him,
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:48.290
  • I said, "Listen, I don't need
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:50.120
  • that building, I don't have but
  • 00:19:50.120 --> 00:19:52.020
  • You need that building, so
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:19:59.090
  • you're gonna have to pay for it.
  • 00:19:59.090 --> 00:20:02.050
  • If you don't pay for it, I'm
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:04.120
  • gonna turn it into a swimming
  • 00:20:04.120 --> 00:20:05.200
  • pool.
  • 00:20:05.200 --> 00:20:08.050
  • I'm not gonna worry about it."
  • 00:20:08.050 --> 00:20:10.060
  • The battle is not mine, it
  • 00:20:10.060 --> 00:20:12.000
  • belongs to God.
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:13.290
  • Y'all don't hear what I'm
  • 00:20:21.280 --> 00:20:22.150
  • saying.
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:23.210
  • I got on the phone, and I
  • 00:20:30.260 --> 00:20:31.250
  • started calling some friends of
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:33.220
  • mine in high places, and they
  • 00:20:33.220 --> 00:20:35.250
  • start calling the presidents of
  • 00:20:35.250 --> 00:20:37.030
  • the banks, and the same Goliath
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:41.270
  • that said I couldn't have the
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:42.270
  • money, now they all fighting
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:44.110
  • over who's gonna give me the
  • 00:20:44.110 --> 00:20:46.030
  • money.
  • 00:20:46.030 --> 00:20:47.280
  • So, I was able to finish
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:49.270
  • building.
  • 00:20:49.270 --> 00:20:51.090
  • I can't even remember what this
  • 00:20:51.090 --> 00:20:52.020
  • building was, about $83 million
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.190
  • building with somebody else's
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:55.250
  • money.
  • 00:20:55.250 --> 00:20:56.230
  • You gonna use somebody else's
  • 00:20:56.230 --> 00:20:57.210
  • To those of you who don't
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:03.040
  • realize it, David knocked him
  • 00:21:03.040 --> 00:21:05.000
  • down with the rock, but he cut
  • 00:21:05.000 --> 00:21:07.210
  • He cut Goliath's head off with
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:18.000
  • Goliath's sword.
  • 00:21:18.000 --> 00:21:20.260
  • If you throw your rock, you can
  • 00:21:20.260 --> 00:21:23.060
  • finish it up with your enemy's
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:24.200
  • Do y'all hear what I'm saying to
  • 00:21:31.150 --> 00:21:32.110
  • you?
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:34.220
  • Touch your neighbor and say,
  • 00:21:34.220 --> 00:21:35.140
  • Stop running from him.
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:42.110
  • Stop running from him.
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:44.070
  • You're gonna kill your enemy
  • 00:21:44.070 --> 00:21:45.270
  • with his own sword, okay?
  • 00:21:47.030 --> 00:21:50.030
  • Can I go a little bit deeper?
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:51.020
  • I'm ready to go deeper.
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:55.190
  • My next point I wanna show you
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:57.060
  • is, theocracy trumps democracy.
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:22:00.270
  • Theocracy trumps democracy.
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:04.220
  • Nobody believed in David.
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:07.210
  • Nobody supported David.
  • 00:22:07.210 --> 00:22:09.250
  • Nobody voted for David.
  • 00:22:09.250 --> 00:22:11.290
  • Nobody suspected that he was the
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:13.110
  • one.
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:14.260
  • You don't need everybody's
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:16.040
  • consensus to underwrite your
  • 00:22:16.040 --> 00:22:18.040
  • next move.
  • 00:22:18.040 --> 00:22:20.200
  • Stop calling everybody to get
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:22.140
  • them on your side, to do what
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:24.220
  • you're trying to do.
  • 00:22:24.220 --> 00:22:26.160
  • Theocracy always trumps
  • 00:22:26.160 --> 00:22:28.060
  • democracy.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:29.250
  • If God says you can do it, you
  • 00:22:29.250 --> 00:22:31.110
  • can do it.
  • 00:22:31.110 --> 00:22:32.010
  • If God says you can have it, you
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:33.260
  • can have it.
  • 00:22:33.260 --> 00:22:34.260
  • If God says you can build it,
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:36.000
  • you can build it.
  • 00:22:36.000 --> 00:22:37.020
  • If God says you can make it, you
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:38.080
  • can make it.
  • 00:22:38.080 --> 00:22:39.120
  • It doesn't matter what your mama
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:40.160
  • said, what Aunt Chris said, what
  • 00:22:40.160 --> 00:22:42.100
  • Uncle Richie said, what Bro
  • 00:22:42.100 --> 00:22:43.260
  • said, what Sis said, what your
  • 00:22:43.260 --> 00:22:45.170
  • neighbor said.
  • 00:22:45.170 --> 00:22:46.200
  • You don't need democracy, you
  • 00:22:46.200 --> 00:22:49.080
  • need theocracy.
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:51.100
  • If God be for you, he's more
  • 00:22:51.100 --> 00:22:52.180
  • than the world against you.
  • 00:22:52.180 --> 00:22:55.120
  • The only person that believed in
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:56.200
  • David was God.
  • 00:22:57.170 --> 00:23:00.190
  • Stop running around trying to
  • 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:01.170
  • get people to believe in you.
  • 00:23:01.170 --> 00:23:04.060
  • You're fighting the wrong
  • 00:23:04.060 --> 00:23:04.260
  • battle.
  • 00:23:04.260 --> 00:23:06.210
  • You don't need to convince them
  • 00:23:06.210 --> 00:23:08.080
  • that you're able.
  • 00:23:09.270 --> 00:23:12.270
  • This is between you and God.
  • 00:23:12.270 --> 00:23:15.230
  • Now, I want you to get this,
  • 00:23:15.230 --> 00:23:16.150
  • because this is important.
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:18.130
  • The soldiers didn't believe in
  • 00:23:18.130 --> 00:23:19.100
  • him.
  • 00:23:19.100 --> 00:23:21.020
  • The king didn't believe in him.
  • 00:23:21.020 --> 00:23:23.170
  • His brothers didn't believe in
  • 00:23:23.170 --> 00:23:24.150
  • him.
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:25.170
  • So, stop feeling sorry for
  • 00:23:34.060 --> 00:23:35.060
  • yourself, and saying, "If my
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:37.050
  • father liked me, and then my
  • 00:23:37.050 --> 00:23:38.120
  • mother would support me, and if
  • 00:23:38.120 --> 00:23:40.000
  • my sister didn't do what she
  • 00:23:40.000 --> 00:23:41.100
  • did, I'd have been someone."
  • 00:23:41.100 --> 00:23:42.180
  • Shut up!
  • 00:23:42.210 --> 00:23:45.210
  • That's an excuse.
  • 00:23:45.210 --> 00:23:48.050
  • They have nothing to do with it.
  • 00:23:48.050 --> 00:23:50.290
  • I can't tell you how many people
  • 00:23:50.290 --> 00:23:52.170
  • got successful with nasty mamas.
  • 00:23:55.050 --> 00:23:58.050
  • I can't tell you how many people
  • 00:23:58.050 --> 00:23:59.120
  • got successful with drunk
  • 00:23:59.120 --> 00:24:01.100
  • daddies.
  • 00:24:01.100 --> 00:24:03.120
  • I can't tell you how many people
  • 00:24:03.120 --> 00:24:04.120
  • was abused and molested and
  • 00:24:04.120 --> 00:24:06.040
  • still became king.
  • 00:24:06.280 --> 00:24:09.280
  • Get rid of your excuse, that is
  • 00:24:09.280 --> 00:24:12.190
  • not the problem.
  • 00:24:12.190 --> 00:24:15.010
  • You don't need democracy.
  • 00:24:15.010 --> 00:24:16.080
  • You don't need everything lining
  • 00:24:16.080 --> 00:24:17.230
  • up in order for you to win.
  • 00:24:17.230 --> 00:24:20.210
  • There are people in this room
  • 00:24:20.210 --> 00:24:21.260
  • that succeeded though they were
  • 00:24:21.260 --> 00:24:23.230
  • hated.
  • 00:24:23.230 --> 00:24:25.160
  • In fact, every person who has
  • 00:24:25.160 --> 00:24:27.210
  • succeeded in some area of your
  • 00:24:27.210 --> 00:24:29.140
  • life, though you were hated,
  • 00:24:29.140 --> 00:24:31.060
  • All of these people are
  • 00:24:49.030 --> 00:24:50.150
  • testimonies that the odds can be
  • 00:24:51.120 --> 00:24:54.120
  • against you, but if God is
  • 00:24:54.210 --> 00:24:57.210
  • - Cora: I pray you fully
  • 00:25:06.160 --> 00:25:07.170
  • receive this word from the Lord
  • 00:25:07.170 --> 00:25:09.020
  • today.
  • 00:25:09.020 --> 00:25:09.270
  • Sometimes, when you are being
  • 00:25:09.270 --> 00:25:11.060
