God is the master of your need. If hadn't had exceptional hunger; you wouldn't have had exceptional food. You've been praying to get out of the very thing that's going to grow you.

  • Bishop Jakes: Much of our NewTestament theology is a result
  • 00:00:16.232 --> 00:00:18.268
  • of the Apostle Paul.
  • 00:00:18.301 --> 00:00:20.170
  • There would be no understanding,yes, Jesus died and shed shed
  • 00:00:20.203 --> 00:00:24.074
  • his blood, rose from the deadand birthed the church, but the
  • 00:00:24.107 --> 00:00:27.544
  • church that Jesus birthed was anorganism with no organization.
  • 00:00:27.577 --> 00:00:33.283
  • There was no structure, therewas no order, there were no
  • 00:00:33.316 --> 00:00:36.252
  • apostles, prophets, pastors,teachers and evangelists, Paul
  • 00:00:36.286 --> 00:00:39.522
  • gives us all of that.
  • 00:00:39.556 --> 00:00:40.857
  • Paul begins to teach us andmakes us understand, "There's
  • 00:00:40.890 --> 00:00:44.094
  • therefore now no condemnation tothem that are in Christ Jesus,
  • 00:00:44.127 --> 00:00:47.063
  • who walk no longer after theflesh but after the spirit."
  • 00:00:47.097 --> 00:00:50.066
  • Paul begins to tell us that, "Ifthis earthly house or tabernacle
  • 00:00:50.100 --> 00:00:53.336
  • shall be dissolved, we haveanother building, eternal in the
  • 00:00:53.369 --> 00:00:56.372
  • heavens, which is made of God."
  • 00:00:56.406 --> 00:00:57.841
  • Paul teaches us, "It is as himthat we live, in him that we
  • 00:00:57.874 --> 00:01:01.411
  • move, in him that we have ourbeing."
  • 00:01:01.444 --> 00:01:03.680
  • It is the Apostle Paul thatmakes us understand, "Therefore,
  • 00:01:03.713 --> 00:01:07.484
  • having peace with God, that weare reconciled with him."
  • 00:01:07.517 --> 00:01:10.587
  • We understand peace of God,peace with God, peace in God all
  • 00:01:10.620 --> 00:01:15.058
  • because of the Apostle Paul.
  • 00:01:15.091 --> 00:01:16.559
  • Without the Apostle Paul, wewould not have a clear
  • 00:01:16.593 --> 00:01:19.195
  • understanding that the door tothe Gentiles had been opened
  • 00:01:19.229 --> 00:01:23.099
  • that they might be saved and setfree.
  • 00:01:23.133 --> 00:01:25.168
  • Paul preached with so much powerthat a man died while he was
  • 00:01:25.201 --> 00:01:31.174
  • preaching, Paul ran down thesteps, raised him from the dead,
  • 00:01:31.207 --> 00:01:35.411
  • and kept right on preaching.
  • 00:01:35.445 --> 00:01:37.347
  • Paul was so awesome that theytried to kill him, they couldn't
  • 00:01:37.380 --> 00:01:41.918
  • kill him, they tried to beat himto death, they left them for
  • 00:01:41.951 --> 00:01:45.555
  • dead, he got up and shookhimself and walked away.
  • 00:01:45.588 --> 00:01:49.392
  • He was in shipwrecks but hesurvived, he was snake bit but
  • 00:01:49.425 --> 00:01:54.130
  • he shook it off, oh, y'all don'thear what I'm saying.
  • 00:01:54.164 --> 00:01:56.366
  • That Paul that raised peoplefrom the dead, withstood
  • 00:01:56.399 --> 00:02:03.273
  • shipwrecks and shook off snakes,why are you needing anything?
  • 00:02:03.306 --> 00:02:12.782
  • If you can raise people from thedead, you can pay your
  • 00:02:12.815 --> 00:02:16.152
  • water bill.
  • 00:02:16.186 --> 00:02:24.160
  • Paul says, "The truth of thematter is I am full, lacking
  • 00:02:24.194 --> 00:02:30.567
  • nothing, but so that you mighthave credit to your account, God
  • 00:02:30.600 --> 00:02:40.543
  • created a need to test you,
  • 00:02:40.577 --> 00:02:48.384
  • to minister to that need," this
  • 00:02:48.418 --> 00:02:52.956
  • is weird.
  • 00:02:52.989 --> 00:02:54.324
  • In other words, Paul's saying Ineeded something but I didn't, I
  • 00:02:54.357 --> 00:02:59.362
  • was in trouble but I wasn't,it's kind of strange.
  • 00:02:59.395 --> 00:03:03.299
  • This is the same guy that said,"I have learned how to abase and
  • 00:03:03.333 --> 00:03:06.436
  • abound, both to be full and tobe in want," he says, even when
  • 00:03:06.469 --> 00:03:11.407
  • you're in trouble, you're not introuble.
  • 00:03:11.441 --> 00:03:18.548
  • Now I need to preach this tosomebody who's got some faith in
  • 00:03:18.581 --> 00:03:21.017
  • them, even when you're introuble, you're not in trouble.
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:28.191
  • That God allows certainnecessities to come, either to
  • 00:03:28.224 --> 00:03:33.663
  • create a backdrop for you toexperience another dimension of
  • 00:03:33.696 --> 00:03:40.837
  • his glory, or for the peoplearound you to have an
  • 00:03:40.870 --> 00:03:46.342
  • opportunity to flow into anotherdimension of his grace.
  • 00:03:46.376 --> 00:03:51.981
  • Now back in the early days, Dr.Jas, when I was preaching, I
  • 00:03:52.015 --> 00:03:55.485
  • would say something real hot andjazzy as a subject, I would do
  • 00:03:55.518 --> 00:04:01.724
  • something like tell you to touchyour neighbor and say, it's a
  • 00:04:01.758 --> 00:04:07.096
  • setup, so touch your neighborand tell them, it's a setup.
  • 00:04:07.130 --> 00:04:14.637
  • They don't understand exactlywhat I'm saying yet 'cause I'm
  • 00:04:17.640 --> 00:04:21.644
  • not totally through unloading ityet, and when I unload it
  • 00:04:21.678 --> 00:04:25.581
  • everybody's not even going toget it because some people are
  • 00:04:25.615 --> 00:04:29.252
  • so shocked by the situation, andthey've been praying so hard
  • 00:04:29.285 --> 00:04:33.323
  • about the situation, they'vebeen so focused on the
  • 00:04:33.356 --> 00:04:36.192
  • circumstance, they've been sodistracted by what they're going
  • 00:04:36.225 --> 00:04:39.495
  • through that they don'tunderstand that everything you
  • 00:04:39.529 --> 00:04:43.833
  • have been going through andevery area you've been up under
  • 00:04:43.866 --> 00:04:47.603
  • attack, and every area that youhave a necessity, your necessity
  • 00:04:47.637 --> 00:04:52.608
  • is not a necessity, it is, infact, an opportunity for you to
  • 00:04:52.642 --> 00:04:58.147
  • experience another dimension ofGod's glory.
  • 00:04:58.181 --> 00:05:02.719
  • To the 10 people who understandit, touch 10 people and say,
  • 00:05:02.752 --> 00:05:06.656
  • "It's a setup," it's trainingwheels for your faith, it's
  • 00:05:06.689 --> 00:05:15.798
  • training wheels for your faith,it is a passage of entry into
  • 00:05:15.832 --> 00:05:21.237
  • the next dimension, it is a barmitzvah for the sons of God to
  • 00:05:21.270 --> 00:05:26.509
  • have matured enough to carry theweight.
  • 00:05:26.542 --> 00:05:29.412
  • Why didn't you give me this backthen?
  • 00:05:29.445 --> 00:05:31.481
  • I couldn't handle it back then,and why would he give me all of
  • 00:05:31.514 --> 00:05:40.323
  • these thousands of seats when Ididn't need them?
  • 00:05:40.356 --> 00:05:49.866
  • If God says the trigger point ofmy supply is your need, no
  • 00:05:49.899 --> 00:05:56.939
  • wonder he hates a proud look,because a proud look will never
  • 00:05:56.973 --> 00:06:01.744
  • admit need.
  • 00:06:01.778 --> 00:06:08.518
  • I know I knocked out about 10rows with that, I killed about
  • 00:06:08.551 --> 00:06:11.187
  • 10 people with that.
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:13.055
  • Why does God hate a proud lookabove everything else?
  • 00:06:13.089 --> 00:06:16.592
  • Above, I mean, murderers andlying and
  • 00:06:16.626 --> 00:06:18.828
  • backbiting, everything?
  • 00:06:18.861 --> 00:06:20.163
  • God said not only does he hatepride, he hates a proud look,
  • 00:06:20.196 --> 00:06:24.834
  • you don't even have to be pride.
  • 00:06:24.867 --> 00:06:26.269
  • He said if you sit there and actlike you're important, I hate
  • 00:06:26.302 --> 00:06:29.705
  • the fact that you have got yourlegs crossed, acting like you're
  • 00:06:29.739 --> 00:06:33.676
  • important, because proud people
  • 00:06:33.709 --> 00:06:40.817
  • will never admit need.
  • 00:06:40.850 --> 00:06:44.987
  • Why would you have a savior ifyou won't admit that
  • 00:06:45.021 --> 00:06:49.792
  • you're drowning?
  • 00:06:49.826 --> 00:06:51.260
  • Why would you have a miracleworker if you won't admit that
  • 00:06:51.294 --> 00:06:55.631
  • you have a need?
  • 00:06:55.665 --> 00:06:56.999
  • No wonder some people getanointed while some people are
  • 00:06:57.033 --> 00:07:00.736
  • just tired, if God responds toneed, if you don't need anything
  • 00:07:00.770 --> 00:07:08.211
  • you won't--
  • 00:07:08.244 --> 00:07:13.216
  • All the needy people clap yourhands.
  • 00:07:13.249 --> 00:07:23.159
  • God says let me see, I got, Igot fish, I got stars, I got
  • 00:07:23.192 --> 00:07:31.934
  • water, I got sunshine, I got oaktrees, I got pineapple trees, I
  • 00:07:31.968 --> 00:07:36.138
  • got all of this stuff that Iwant to give but I cannot give
  • 00:07:36.172 --> 00:07:39.842
  • it until there is a need.
  • 00:07:39.876 --> 00:07:43.746
  • So he forms the earth, when heforms it, it creates a void.
  • 00:07:43.779 --> 00:07:52.922
  • Void is capacity, and heresponds to the capacity of what
  • 00:07:55.157 --> 00:08:03.132
  • is formed.
  • 00:08:03.165 --> 00:08:04.700
  • He said I create capacity in the
  • 00:08:04.734 --> 00:08:08.070
  • ocean so I can put fish in it, I
  • 00:08:08.104 --> 00:08:15.511
  • created capacity in the earth soI could sow seed into it, I
  • 00:08:15.545 --> 00:08:22.084
  • created capacity in the heavensso I could throw stars at it and
  • 00:08:22.118 --> 00:08:27.089
  • birds at it, now you gotsomething to fly in, I couldn't
  • 00:08:27.123 --> 00:08:30.793
  • release the answer until Iformed--
  • 00:08:30.826 --> 00:08:38.200
  • He formed the earth and fillsit, he forms the ocean and fills
  • 00:08:38.234 --> 00:08:45.341
  • it with fish, he forms the airand fills it with birds;
  • 00:08:45.374 --> 00:08:50.313
  • everything God forms, he fills.
  • 00:08:50.346 --> 00:08:54.417
  • He formed the tabernacle andfilled it with furniture, he
  • 00:08:54.450 --> 00:08:59.889
  • formed the Holy of Holies andthen filled it with glory.
  • 00:08:59.922 --> 00:09:02.458
  • In fact, he formed man andfilled him with air.
  • 00:09:02.491 --> 00:09:07.763
  • Which came first, theman or the breath?
  • 00:09:07.797 --> 00:09:10.299
  • God had the breath but untilthere was capacity, he couldn't
  • 00:09:10.333 --> 00:09:14.804
  • fill anything until you admit--oh, y'all don't hear it.
  • 00:09:14.837 --> 00:09:21.243
  • He responds to capacity.
  • 00:09:21.277 --> 00:09:26.849
  • Ezekiel, go down and show mewhat you see in the valley, "I
  • 00:09:26.882 --> 00:09:29.118
  • see dry bones in the valley."
  • 00:09:29.151 --> 00:09:31.287
  • He said, "Can these bones liveagain, Lord, thou knowest, speak
  • 00:09:31.320 --> 00:09:33.422
  • to the bones that they mightlive."
  • 00:09:33.456 --> 00:09:34.890
  • "So I prophesied as I wascommanded.
  • 00:09:34.924 --> 00:09:36.559
  • Suddenly there was noise, andthere was a shaking, a bone came
  • 00:09:36.592 --> 00:09:38.761
  • together, bone to his bone.
  • 00:09:38.794 --> 00:09:40.463
  • And they came together, bone tohis bone, and sinews came
  • 00:09:40.496 --> 00:09:43.366
  • upon them.
  • 00:09:43.399 --> 00:09:44.700
  • And then he said, 'Prophesy tothe wind,'" because now, I can
  • 00:09:44.734 --> 00:09:50.973
  • fill what I formed, because Godresponds to capacity.
  • 00:09:51.007 --> 00:09:56.679
  • If you don't want anything youwon't get anything, if you don't
  • 00:09:56.712 --> 00:10:01.951
  • need anything you won't receiveanything, do you not know that
  • 00:10:01.984 --> 00:10:06.589
  • the real star of the story withthe two fish and the five loaves
  • 00:10:06.622 --> 00:10:10.593
  • of bread is not the little boy,and it's not the lunch, it was
  • 00:10:10.626 --> 00:10:15.931
  • the hunger that moved the Lord?
  • 00:10:15.965 --> 00:10:18.501
  • When they came to Jesus and theysaid, "The people that are with
  • 00:10:18.534 --> 00:10:23.239
  • you are hungry," he said ohgood, that's capacity, wherever
  • 00:10:23.272 --> 00:10:27.743
  • I see capacity I will releasesupply.
  • 00:10:27.777 --> 00:10:32.848
  • Oh, I want all the people that'sgot capacity to holler
  • 00:10:32.882 --> 00:10:38.921
  • right now.
  • 00:10:38.954 --> 00:10:47.396
  • They said, "Lord, you got 5.000hungry people, what do
  • 00:10:47.430 --> 00:10:52.101
  • you have?"
  • 00:10:52.134 --> 00:10:53.469
  • He said, "We don't have nothingbut the little boy's lunch," he
  • 00:10:53.502 --> 00:10:55.371
  • said, "I can work with anythingif they're hungry."
  • 00:10:55.404 --> 00:10:58.974
  • I can work with anything ifthere's a need, I can work with
  • 00:10:59.008 --> 00:11:02.812
  • anything if they're thirsty, Ican work with anything, just
  • 00:11:02.845 --> 00:11:06.615
  • give me the little bit you gotand I know it's not much,
  • 00:11:06.649 --> 00:11:09.452
  • because a star is not what's inthe bag, the star is the aching
  • 00:11:09.485 --> 00:11:14.590
  • in the belly of the people; Godresponds to hunger.
  • 00:11:14.623 --> 00:11:18.728
  • The Bible said that when Jesus,after John the Baptist was

  • your staff and watch me make away.
  • 00:13:34.330 --> 00:13:38.567
  • Okay, I wanna talk a little bitabout this woman,
  • 00:13:43.305 --> 00:13:52.181
  • this unique woman
  • 00:13:52.214 --> 00:14:01.156
  • who has maxed out on thelevel that she's on,
  • 00:14:01.190 --> 00:14:07.897
  • she has maxed out on the levelthat she's on.
  • 00:14:07.930 --> 00:14:13.602
  • The prophet has experienced abrook that has dried up, and God
  • 00:14:13.636 --> 00:14:20.009
  • says, "I want you to go to thewidow's house, there I will
  • 00:14:20.042 --> 00:14:26.181
  • sustain you," I will ministerunto your necessity through a
  • 00:14:26.215 --> 00:14:33.322
  • widow who is broke.
  • 00:14:33.355 --> 00:14:37.092
  • What God's getting ready to dois so crazy, how can I be
  • 00:14:43.432 --> 00:14:51.707
  • thirsty and hungry and you sendme to somebody broke?
  • 00:14:51.740 --> 00:14:56.412
  • God said I am going to ministerunto your need and I am going to
  • 00:15:02.952 --> 00:15:08.290
  • use people to bless you, butit's not gonna make any sense
  • 00:15:08.324 --> 00:15:12.962

  • 00:15:12.995 --> 00:15:19.001

  • 00:15:19.034 --> 00:15:23.539
  • So I'm gonna send you down thereand I'm gonna show you how to

  • God's gonna let you see how totake something that looks like
  • 00:15:32.114 --> 00:15:35.884
  • nothing and turn it completelyaround, Lord, I don't know who
  • 00:15:35.918 --> 00:15:40.756
  • I'm preaching to.
  • 00:15:40.789 --> 00:15:44.460
  • You don't--Elijah, you don'thave food and you don't have
  • 00:15:44.493 --> 00:15:47.463
  • water but you've got creativeconcepts and ideas and I'm going
  • 00:15:47.496 --> 00:15:53.168
  • to put you in a position foryour gifting to shine.
  • 00:15:53.202 --> 00:15:57.706
  • You can do no more in the brook,the water is not the problem,
  • 00:15:57.740 --> 00:16:01.944
  • the famine is not the problem, Ineed to put your gifts on
  • 00:16:01.977 --> 00:16:05.714
  • display and I can only displayyour gifts in a place of need so
  • 00:16:05.748 --> 00:16:10.853
  • I'm gonna bring you to somebodywho needs you.
  • 00:16:10.886 --> 00:16:15.324
  • See, you've been trying to feedfolk who don't need you and you
  • 00:16:15.357 --> 00:16:20.596
  • can never reach your potentialanytime you have to force people
  • 00:16:20.629 --> 00:16:26.101
  • to feed, you've been trying toforce them to love you, you've
  • 00:16:26.135 --> 00:16:29.738
  • been trying to force them tohear you, but God said I'm gonna
  • 00:16:29.772 --> 00:16:32.574
  • send your gift where it canshine, go to the widow's house.
  • 00:16:32.608 --> 00:16:39.281
  • Slap somebody and say go.
  • 00:16:39.314 --> 00:16:41.617
  • Watch this, I'm the master ofyour need, I'm going to deliver
  • 00:16:44.353 --> 00:16:49.958
  • you from feeding people whodon't need you, from forcing
  • 00:16:49.992 --> 00:16:55.030
  • yourself on people who don'twant you.
  • 00:16:55.064 --> 00:16:57.499
  • I did not create you for you tobeg people to receive what I
  • 00:16:57.533 --> 00:17:02.337
  • gave you, I'm gonna put you in aplace where people can
  • 00:17:02.371 --> 00:17:06.175
  • appreciate what I gave you.
  • 00:17:06.208 --> 00:17:08.744
  • You have been in a spirit, in astage of dealing with people who
  • 00:17:08.777 --> 00:17:13.982
  • have no appreciation for whatyou have, but tonight, God said
  • 00:17:14.016 --> 00:17:20.923
  • it is finished.
  • 00:17:20.956 --> 00:17:23.859
  • Now watch this, watch this, Iwant you to get this.
  • 00:17:32.968 --> 00:17:38.107
  • He takes the need of Elijah andmatches it with the need of the
  • 00:17:38.140 --> 00:17:43.345
  • widow, he takes a need andbrings it to a need, I told you
  • 00:17:43.378 --> 00:17:51.153
  • he's the master of my need.
  • 00:17:51.186 --> 00:17:53.755
  • See, the only reason yourministry hadn't gone further is
  • 00:17:53.789 --> 00:17:57.292
  • the folk that you're trying tofeed don't perceive that they
  • 00:17:57.326 --> 00:18:00.529
  • need you.
  • 00:18:00.562 --> 00:18:01.864
  • If you find somebody who'swilling to admit how hungry they
  • 00:18:01.897 --> 00:18:11.707
  • are you won't have to beg themto feed them.
  • 00:18:11.740 --> 00:18:15.511
  • He that hungers and thirstsafter righteousness shall be
  • 00:18:15.544 --> 00:18:20.516
  • filled, shout yes.
  • 00:18:20.549 --> 00:18:27.122
  • Okay, there's a couple of thingsI want to point out.
  • 00:18:27.156 --> 00:18:30.826
  • This woman had a need, she had alack in her resources because
  • 00:18:30.859 --> 00:18:36.765
  • she did not perceive what shehad correctly, and until you
  • 00:18:36.798 --> 00:18:43.038
  • perceive what you have correctlyyou will eat it and die.
  • 00:18:43.071 --> 00:18:51.213
  • When you don't think that whatyou have is enough to help
  • 00:18:51.246 --> 00:18:55.884
  • anybody else you will eat it anddie, not because it's not enough
  • 00:18:55.918 --> 00:19:01.156
  • but you will eat it and diebecause of how you perceive it,
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:06.161
  • so God brings a prophet to seewhat she has in
  • 00:19:06.195 --> 00:19:12.868
  • another perspective.
  • 00:19:12.901 --> 00:19:16.672
  • He says, watch this, he saysthere's nothing wrong with the
  • 00:19:16.705 --> 00:19:22.211
  • little bit of oil you have inthe cruse, there's nothing wrong
  • 00:19:22.244 --> 00:19:26.848
  • with the barrel or the handfulof meal, it is that because you
  • 00:19:26.882 --> 00:19:31.787
  • perceive it as an impossibilityyour perception is killing you.
  • 00:19:31.820 --> 00:19:38.961
  • He says I want you to act likeit's more than enough, and the
  • 00:19:38.994 --> 00:19:44.399
  • more you act like it's more thanenough the more I will make it
  • 00:19:44.433 --> 00:19:49.304
  • more than enough.
  • 00:19:49.338 --> 00:19:50.772
  • And if you walk in the room likeyou're not enough you're gonna
  • 00:19:50.806 --> 00:19:54.610
  • be received like you're notenough.
  • 00:19:54.643 --> 00:19:57.112
  • But I want you to set the tablelike you got everything you need
  • 00:19:57.145 --> 00:20:01.216
  • and serve it like it's more thanenough, and if you'll serve it
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:05.153
  • like it's more than enough Iwill release you into a flow.
  • 00:20:05.187 --> 00:20:09.691
  • But that's not the thing thatgot me, let me show you what
  • 00:20:09.725 --> 00:20:12.127
  • got me.
  • 00:20:12.160 --> 00:20:13.462
  • What got me was, most of timeyou're praying, you ask God to
  • 00:20:13.495 --> 00:20:18.900
  • do something, you want to seethe increase, we want to see it,
  • 00:20:18.934 --> 00:20:24.406
  • how many people want to see theincrease?
  • 00:20:24.439 --> 00:20:26.642
  • You wanna see the increase, butif you see the increase is it
  • 00:20:26.675 --> 00:20:32.447
  • really a miracle?
  • 00:20:32.481 --> 00:20:36.718
  • Come on, if you see the increaseis it really a miracle?
  • 00:20:36.752 --> 00:20:43.358
  • If you can see your way clearis it really a miracle?
  • 00:20:43.392 --> 00:20:47.596
  • If you can see how you're goingto do what's next, is it really
  • 00:20:47.629 --> 00:20:51.333
  • a miracle?
  • 00:20:51.366 --> 00:20:53.035
  • The real power of the miracle isnot just that God sustained her
  • 00:20:53.068 --> 00:20:57.606
  • and Elijah as long as there wasa drought, watch that, the Bible
  • 00:20:57.639 --> 00:21:06.315
  • said, "I will sustain you untilit rains."
  • 00:21:06.348 --> 00:21:14.089
  • That, y'all missed that, theydidn't get that, I could tell
  • 00:21:14.122 --> 00:21:16.892
  • you got that, God said, "I willsustain you until it rains."
  • 00:21:16.925 --> 00:21:20.862
  • He said until the outsideblessing comes, I'm going to do
  • 00:21:20.896 --> 00:21:25.834
  • something underground in theSpirit to make sure you live as
  • 00:21:25.867 --> 00:21:31.506
  • if it's raining though it's dry.
  • 00:21:31.540 --> 00:21:36.945
  • Oh, I wish I had a church thatwas ready for this; so
  • 00:21:36.978 --> 00:21:40.882
  • watch this.
  • 00:21:40.916 --> 00:21:44.553
  • The prophet comes in the house,says, "Reach your hand in the
  • 00:21:44.586 --> 00:21:47.823
  • barrel and bake a cake for mefirst," and he says, "Your meal
  • 00:21:47.856 --> 00:21:55.464
  • barrel will not run out, norwill the cruse of oil fail you
  • 00:21:55.497 --> 00:22:02.537
  • until it rains."
  • 00:22:02.571 --> 00:22:05.907
  • But wait a minute, it wasn'tthat he said if you bake a cake
  • 00:22:05.941 --> 00:22:11.980
  • for the man of God first, I'mgoing to send you 50 barrels, he
  • 00:22:12.013 --> 00:22:17.819
  • said you're going to have theone barrel, the same barrel that
  • 00:22:17.853 --> 00:22:20.422
  • you always had, you're gonna
  • 00:22:20.455 --> 00:22:28.663
  • have the same handful of meal
  • 00:22:28.697 --> 00:22:31.266
  • that you always had, it's justthat every time you reach for
  • 00:22:31.299 --> 00:22:35.904
  • it, every time you reach for it
  • 00:22:35.937 --> 00:22:45.213
  • I'm gonna give a release in
  • 00:22:45.247 --> 00:22:47.783
  • your life.
  • 00:22:47.816 --> 00:22:49.151
  • He said, in other words, I'mgonna show you what's in your
  • 00:22:49.184 --> 00:22:52.354
  • barrel, you don't know what yougot, put your hand on your
  • 00:22:52.387 --> 00:22:56.191
  • stomach, you don't know what yougot.
  • 00:22:56.224 --> 00:23:03.198
  • Every time you need it I'm goingto send it, every time you cry
  • 00:23:03.231 --> 00:23:06.802
  • for it I'm going to release it,every time you open your mouth
  • 00:23:06.835 --> 00:23:09.871
  • I'm going to release it.
  • 00:23:09.905 --> 00:23:11.239
  • You are, watch, wait a minute,you are never gonna see any more
  • 00:23:11.273 --> 00:23:17.112
  • than what you see right now.
  • 00:23:17.145 --> 00:23:19.381
  • I'm not gonna give you 50barrels, so since I won't give
  • 00:23:19.414 --> 00:23:24.719
  • you 50 barrels, I've got tochange your perception of what
  • 00:23:24.753 --> 00:23:29.257
  • you got.
  • 00:23:29.291 --> 00:23:30.592
  • You don't know what you got,that's why I sent the prophet.
  • 00:23:30.625 --> 00:23:36.498
  • Reach for it, it happens, reachfor it, it happens, reach for
  • 00:23:36.531 --> 00:23:42.871
  • it, it happens, reach for it, ithappens.
  • 00:23:42.904 --> 00:23:46.241
  • Now sisters, let me say, I wantyou to act this out, I want you
  • 00:23:46.274 --> 00:23:49.211
  • to reach for it right now, justreach for it, it happens.
  • 00:23:49.244 --> 00:23:52.447
  • Do it again, reach for it, ithappened.
  • 00:23:52.481 --> 00:23:54.749
  • Do it again, reach for it, ithappens, do it again.
  • 00:23:54.783 --> 00:23:59.354
  • That's how you're going to comeout of this season, every time
  • 00:23:59.387 --> 00:24:02.157
  • you reach for it God's gonnagive you a handful, every time
  • 00:24:02.190 --> 00:24:05.527
  • you use it God's gonna releaseit.
  • 00:24:05.560 --> 00:24:08.497
  • Slap somebody, say use it, girl.
  • 00:24:08.530 --> 00:24:10.999

  • you can't handle it.
  • 00:24:52.541 --> 00:24:53.842
  • The reason the enemy sends thosevoices is as long as you listen
  • 00:24:53.875 --> 00:24:58.580
  • to those voices you will onlyhave enough to eat and die.
  • 00:24:58.613 --> 00:25:04.152
