  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes:
  • 00:00:10.050 --> 00:00:11.020
  • Sometimes on your job,
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:13.040
  • when all hell is breaking loose,
  • 00:00:13.040 --> 00:00:16.040
  • instead of taking a coffee
  • 00:00:16.040 --> 00:00:17.210

  • 00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:22.150

  • whenever you get down, whenever
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.050
  • you get depressed, whenever you
  • 00:01:02.050 --> 00:01:03.220
  • get in trouble, the first thing
  • 00:01:03.220 --> 00:01:05.170
  • the enemy wants you to do is
  • 00:01:05.170 --> 00:01:06.240
  • shut up.
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:08.180
  • Don't talk, don't tell anybody,
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:10.100
  • don't scream, don't make no
  • 00:01:10.100 --> 00:01:12.020
  • noise, stay quiet, because the
  • 00:01:12.020 --> 00:01:13.290
  • devil knows that the power of
  • 00:01:13.290 --> 00:01:16.070
  • life is your mouth.
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:19.120
  • You shall have whatever you say.
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:25.120
  • Slap your neighbor, and touch
  • 00:01:25.120 --> 00:01:26.270
  • 'em, and say, "Say something."
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:30.060
  • Don't sit there and let the
  • 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:31.040
  • enemy have all of your stuff,
  • 00:01:31.040 --> 00:01:33.110
  • say something.
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:34.160
  • Don't let him destroy your mind,
  • 00:01:34.160 --> 00:01:36.240
  • say something.
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:37.280
  • Don't let him destroy your
  • 00:01:37.280 --> 00:01:39.090
  • finances, say something.
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:41.110
  • Don't let him destroy your
  • 00:01:41.110 --> 00:01:42.170
  • child, say something.
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:44.150
  • Don't let him take away your
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:45.280
  • body, say something.
  • 00:01:45.280 --> 00:01:48.050
  • - Bishop Jakes: I want you to
  • 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:00.240
  • understand that praise
  • 00:02:00.240 --> 00:02:02.290
  • is a command.
  • 00:02:03.070 --> 00:02:06.070
  • See, I came from a very
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:08.010
  • conservative background.
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:10.290
  • I was raised by a very
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:12.040
  • conservative woman.
  • 00:02:12.040 --> 00:02:12.260
  • You can't tell, but my other was
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:14.210
  • very conservative, very
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:16.260
  • conservative.
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:18.090
  • Prided herself on being very
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:20.090
  • conservative.
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.210
  • Her whole entire side of the
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:22.280
  • family were unemotional.
  • 00:02:22.280 --> 00:02:25.230
  • If we got emotional, my mother
  • 00:02:25.230 --> 00:02:27.040
  • would slap you and tell you to
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:29.270
  • get yourself together.
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:32.100
  • Don't nobody care if you cry,
  • 00:02:32.100 --> 00:02:34.170
  • shut up.
  • 00:02:34.170 --> 00:02:36.000
  • Stand up, take it, be tough.
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:38.180
  • So, when I came around you
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:41.130
  • sanctified people, it was a
  • 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:46.240
  • struggle, because I thought you
  • 00:02:46.240 --> 00:02:49.040
  • were jumping and hollering
  • 00:02:49.040 --> 00:02:51.280
  • because you were emotional.
  • 00:02:56.040 --> 00:02:59.040
  • And then, I thought maybe it was
  • 00:02:59.040 --> 00:03:00.270
  • denominational.
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:03.000
  • And then, there are those who
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:04.020
  • think it's cultural.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:06.170
  • No, it's obedience.
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:08.110
  • Praise is a command, it's not a
  • 00:03:09.000 --> 00:03:12.000
  • question.
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:13.200
  • God didn't say feel like
  • 00:03:13.200 --> 00:03:16.010
  • praising me, he didn't say get
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:18.160
  • chill bumps and praise me, he
  • 00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:20.230
  • said, "Let everything that has
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:25.040
  • breath praise ye."
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:31.100
  • Praise him with your Baptist
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:32.210
  • self.
  • 00:03:32.210 --> 00:03:33.240
  • Praise him with your Catholic
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:35.110
  • self.
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:36.090
  • Praise him with your Pentecostal
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.290
  • self.
  • 00:03:37.290 --> 00:03:38.270
  • Praise him with your
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:39.260
  • Presbyterian self.
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:41.210
  • If God gave you breath, give it
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:44.180
  • back.

  • [music]
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:02.290
  • - Bishop Jakes: You understand
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:03.270
  • that when you open your mouth,
  • 00:04:03.270 --> 00:04:05.080
  • not only are you giving
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:06.170
  • sound, you're giving wind.
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:11.260
  • You're giving breath, glory to
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:14.190
  • God.
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:15.190
  • The symbol of the Holy Spirit is
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:17.060
  • wind, what Job calls deep
  • 00:04:17.060 --> 00:04:20.000
  • calling unto deep.
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:21.220
  • Because you blew at me, God, I
  • 00:04:21.220 --> 00:04:24.040
  • blow back at you.
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:26.010
  • If you blow at me, I'll blow
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:28.080
  • back at you.
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:30.010
  • And God breathed into him the
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:31.160
  • breath of life, and he's been
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:33.090
  • blowing back ever since.
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:35.090
  • Make a sound.
  • 00:04:35.090 --> 00:04:37.050
  • [congregation cheering]
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:47.050
  • [music]
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:55.250
  • - Bishop Jakes: Something in
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:56.200
  • this place is about to shatter.
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:04:59.230
  • I felt it ever since the first
  • 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:01.140
  • song was sung.
  • 00:05:01.140 --> 00:05:03.130
  • We're on the verge of something.
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:05.270
  • Touch your neighbor and tell
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:06.230
  • 'em, "Zion is calling me."
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:10.170
  • I don't normally jump up like
  • 00:05:10.170 --> 00:05:11.260
  • this, but Zion is calling me.
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:15.080
  • I don't normally holler in
  • 00:05:15.080 --> 00:05:16.200
  • church, but Zion is calling me.
  • 00:05:16.240 --> 00:05:19.240
  • I don't know why I'm crying, but
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:22.050
  • Zion is calling me.
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:24.220
  • It's not my nature, but Zion is
  • 00:05:24.220 --> 00:05:27.100
  • calling me.
  • 00:05:27.100 --> 00:05:28.270
  • I knew something was missing out
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:31.140
  • of my life, it I didn't know it
  • 00:05:31.140 --> 00:05:33.180
  • was God.
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:35.000
  • Zion is calling me.
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:44.150
  • Sit down, let me teach some
  • 00:05:44.150 --> 00:05:45.130
  • more.
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:48.290
  • I'm doing good, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:05:55.030 --> 00:05:58.030
  • [congregation cheering]
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:06.140
  • - Bishop Jakes: David's
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:07.100
  • tabernacle--see, what I want you
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:09.160
  • to see is that Moses's
  • 00:06:09.250 --> 00:06:12.250
  • tabernacle is still on Mount
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:15.080
  • Gibia when David puts his
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:18.120
  • tabernacle on Mount Zion, and
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:21.140
  • they're both coexisting at the
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:23.060
  • same time.
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:25.010
  • The former and the latter are
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:29.040
  • coexisting at the same time.
  • 00:06:31.020 --> 00:06:34.020
  • Ain't that always the way?
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:38.220
  • That which was is still there
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:43.080
  • while that which is, is standing
  • 00:06:43.080 --> 00:06:45.290
  • in your face.
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:48.290
  • You would think that God
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:50.290
  • would knock this down,
  • 00:06:52.140 --> 00:06:55.140
  • but change takes time.
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:07:00.290
  • You can't wait 'til the former
  • 00:07:00.290 --> 00:07:03.190
  • is gone to activate the latter.
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:09.240
  • You have to build the latter in
  • 00:07:09.240 --> 00:07:12.060
  • the face of the former.
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:15.080
  • Y'all don't hear what I'm
  • 00:07:15.080 --> 00:07:15.240
  • saying.
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:16.190
  • Somebody's in the middle of a
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:18.030
  • transition, and you're waiting
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:20.160
  • on the former to be gone before
  • 00:07:20.160 --> 00:07:23.060
  • you move into the latter, but
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:25.100
  • God said right in the face of
  • 00:07:25.100 --> 00:07:27.160
  • that which was, it's time to
  • 00:07:27.160 --> 00:07:30.040
  • step into that which is.
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:32.240
  • Do you hear what I'm saying?
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:35.080
  • Oh, my God, I'm talking to
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:36.130
  • somebody.
  • 00:07:36.130 --> 00:07:37.090
  • Who am I talking to this
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:38.120
  • morning?
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:41.250
  • This pattern, watch this, of the
  • 00:07:42.090 --> 00:07:45.090
  • former and the later coexisting
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:46.210
  • at the same time, has been with
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:49.030
  • David all his life.
  • 00:07:49.110 --> 00:07:52.110
  • He has always progressed in the
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:55.030
  • face of that which was.
  • 00:07:55.030 --> 00:07:57.170
  • Bear in mind, God anointed him
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.040
  • to be king while Saul was still
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:01.260
  • sitting on the throne.
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:04.080
  • So, the anointing was over here,
  • 00:08:05.050 --> 00:08:08.050
  • and the appointing was over
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:10.010
  • there.
  • 00:08:10.010 --> 00:08:11.220
  • Saul had the position, but David
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:14.250
  • had the presence.
  • 00:08:15.150 --> 00:08:18.150
  • So, what you see in David's
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:20.160
  • life, you now see in the
  • 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:22.240
  • picture, the duality of
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:25.260
  • circumstances.
  • 00:08:27.090 --> 00:08:30.090
  • It is the best of times and the
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:36.280
  • worst of times all at the same
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:40.130
  • time.
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:43.090
  • You have to choose where you're
  • 00:08:43.090 --> 00:08:45.230
  • gonna pull your energy.
  • 00:08:46.040 --> 00:08:49.040
  • You pull your energy toward
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:51.240
  • where you're going, not drag it
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:54.150
  • back into where you've already
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:57.040
  • been.
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:08:59.130
  • I'm helping somebody.
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:02.290
  • This is good for somebody.
  • 00:09:03.180 --> 00:09:06.180
  • So, the Bible says David was 30
  • 00:09:07.050 --> 00:09:10.050
  • when he was made king.
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:12.040
  • And so, he was a young man, and
  • 00:09:12.040 --> 00:09:14.210
  • young people tend to be radical.
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:20.100
  • Where are my young people at?
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:21.100
  • Make some noise.
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:26.190
  • God uses your youth for
  • 00:09:28.030 --> 00:09:31.030
  • transformation, because you're
  • 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:34.200
  • radical.
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:38.100
  • Because you don't care about
  • 00:09:38.100 --> 00:09:39.110
  • rules.
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:42.010
  • Sometimes you don't know the
  • 00:09:42.010 --> 00:09:43.040
  • rules no way.
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:49.210
  • Touch somebody and say, "You're
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:50.240
  • gonna be a rule-breaker."
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:10:00.030
  • Nobody else in my family went to
  • 00:10:00.030 --> 00:10:01.260
  • college, but.
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:06.250
  • Nobody in my family ever owned

  • their own business, but.
  • 00:10:14.040 --> 00:10:17.040
  • Where are my rule-breakers?
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:20.210
  • Where are my rule-breakers?
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:22.030
  • Make some noise if you're a
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:23.250
  • rule-breaker.
  • 00:10:30.220 --> 00:10:33.220
  • Make a joyful noise.
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:42.190
  • The noise that you made can be
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:46.250
  • measured in decibels.

  • The noise that you just made can
  • 00:10:51.250 --> 00:10:53.010
  • be measured in decibels.
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:56.010
  • The decibels determine the
  • 00:10:56.010 --> 00:10:57.210
  • frequency.
  • 00:10:58.220 --> 00:11:01.240
  • The frequency, you need to get a
  • 00:11:02.050 --> 00:11:05.050
  • new frequency.
  • 00:11:05.100 --> 00:11:08.100
  • David's tabernacle is a new

  • I'm gonna give you some heavy

  • Sit with me just a minute.
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:15.220
  • I'm gonna give you some heavy
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:16.160
  • stuff, and I'm gonna give it one
  • 00:11:16.160 --> 00:11:18.090
  • time, but it's gonna last
  • 00:11:18.090 --> 00:11:19.220
  • forever.
  • 00:11:20.020 --> 00:11:23.020
  • I'm gonna teach you this one
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:25.120

  • when I'm dead.
  • 00:11:27.230 --> 00:11:30.230
  • If you live in Europe, it's
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:31.210
  • gonna be true in Europe.

  • If you live in Africa, it's

  • If you came here from Australia,
  • 00:11:35.230 --> 00:11:37.050
  • it's gonna be true in Australia.

  • God is putting you on a new
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:40.250
  • frequency.
  • 00:11:42.100 --> 00:11:45.100
  • There is a frequency in the

  • spirit that few people ever
  • 00:11:47.270 --> 00:11:50.200

  • Jamel, I was gonna go to Exodus

  • Hebrews 12 instead.
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.150
  • Go to Hebrews 12, I'm gonna go

  • book of better things.
  • 00:12:09.280 --> 00:12:12.130
  • The writer of the Book of
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:13.260
  • Hebrews is now trying to show

  • your belly is the sign that
  • 00:13:10.230 --> 00:13:13.100
  • something just woke up in you.
  • 00:13:13.100 --> 00:13:15.160
  • Something that everybody thought
  • 00:13:15.160 --> 00:13:16.220

  • gettin' ready to scatter.
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:22.170

  • in the mission fields,

  • better in my life, I'm reading
  • 00:13:38.080 --> 00:13:40.170
  • Hebrews, because it is the book
  • 00:13:40.170 --> 00:13:42.030
  • of better things.
  • 00:13:42.030 --> 00:13:45.020
  • Whoever wrote it, some people
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:46.170
  • say it was Paul, I don't think
  • 00:13:46.170 --> 00:13:47.180
  • so, I think it was Apollos, we
  • 00:13:47.180 --> 00:13:49.280
  • don't know, I wasn't there, but
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:51.200
  • it just don't sound like Paul to
  • 00:13:51.200 --> 00:13:52.160
  • me.
  • 00:13:52.160 --> 00:13:53.130
  • Anyway, "You have not come to a
  • 00:13:53.130 --> 00:13:55.020
  • and that is burning with fire to
  • 00:13:59.270 --> 00:14:02.280
  • darkness, gloom and storm.
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:07.110
  • To a trumpet blast or to such a
  • 00:14:07.110 --> 00:14:10.000
  • voice speaking words that those
  • 00:14:10.000 --> 00:14:12.170
  • who heard it begged that no
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:14.180
  • further word be spoken to them."
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:17.050
  • Oh, wait a minute, what is he
  • 00:14:17.050 --> 00:14:18.160
  • talking about?
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:20.270
  • You remember when Moses came to
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:26.200
  • Sinai with the children of
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:28.150
  • Israel at the bottom of the
  • 00:14:28.150 --> 00:14:29.180
  • mountain, and they wanted to
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:31.100
  • hear God speak?
  • 00:14:31.100 --> 00:14:32.200
  • But when God started coming
  • 00:14:32.200 --> 00:14:34.000
  • around the mountain, the people
  • 00:14:34.000 --> 00:14:35.160
  • said, "No, we'll hear Moses and
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:38.100
  • not God."
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:39.160
  • And they couldn't touch the
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:40.190
  • mountain, because the mountain
  • 00:14:40.190 --> 00:14:42.070
  • was on fire, and God said,
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:43.180
  • "Don't let the animals come near
  • 00:14:43.180 --> 00:14:45.140
  • it."
  • 00:14:45.140 --> 00:14:46.090
  • That's the law, that's the Old
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:49.030
  • Testament, that's where the
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:50.140
  • plans of Moses's tabernacle were
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:52.060
  • given, from that place.
  • 00:14:52.060 --> 00:14:53.250
  • But the writer of Hebrews says
  • 00:14:53.250 --> 00:14:55.160
  • you have not come to a mountain
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:15:00.220
  • that burns with smoke, that
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:03.000
  • cannot be touched, because they
  • 00:15:03.000 --> 00:15:05.220
  • could not bear what was
  • 00:15:05.220 --> 00:15:08.000
  • commanded.
  • 00:15:08.000 --> 00:15:08.280
  • Even an animal touches the
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:10.160
  • mountain, it must be stoned to
  • 00:15:10.160 --> 00:15:12.160
  • death.
  • 00:15:12.160 --> 00:15:13.160
  • That's what was, but that's not
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:18.130
  • what is.
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.060
  • Come on with me, give it to me.
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:22.050
  • "The sight was so terrifying
  • 00:15:22.050 --> 00:15:24.130
  • that Moses said, 'I am trembling
  • 00:15:24.130 --> 00:15:27.020
  • with fear.'"
  • 00:15:27.020 --> 00:15:28.070
  • That's what was,
  • 00:15:28.070 --> 00:15:30.000
  • that's not what is.
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:31.220
  • God doesn't want you to be
  • 00:15:31.220 --> 00:15:33.040
  • trembling with fear, God wants
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:34.240
  • you to be moving in faith.
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:42.000
  • So, the writer says take it--go
  • 00:15:42.000 --> 00:15:43.110
  • back to the top again.
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:44.110
  • Go back to the top and come down
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:45.150
  • again, because I wanna get--"You
  • 00:15:45.150 --> 00:15:46.190
  • have not come to a mountain that
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:50.130
  • can be touched and that is
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:51.290
  • burning with fire to darkness,
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:54.260
  • That's not where you're coming.
  • 00:15:56.180 --> 00:15:58.070
  • You haven't come to a trumpet
  • 00:15:58.070 --> 00:15:59.130
  • blast, or, "To such a voice
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:01.130
  • speaking words that those who
  • 00:16:01.130 --> 00:16:03.030
  • heard it begged that no further
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:05.100
  • word be spoken to them."
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:06.250
  • "No, we'll hear from Moses,"
  • 00:16:06.250 --> 00:16:08.100
  • because they could not bear what
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:10.060
  • was commanded.
  • 00:16:10.060 --> 00:16:11.180
  • Even their animals touching the
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:13.080
  • mountain, if an animal touched
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:15.100
  • the mountain, they were stoned
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:17.130
  • to death, come on.
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:19.110
  • The sight was so terrifying that
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:21.210
  • Moses said, "I am trembling with
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:23.230
  • fear."
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:24.210
  • Touch your neighbor and say,
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:25.190
  • "But that's not what we've come
  • 00:16:25.190 --> 00:16:26.160
  • to."
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:29.010
  • No, "But you have come to Mount
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:31.220
  • Zion."
  • 00:16:33.200 --> 00:16:36.200
  • Zion is calling me
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:43.140
  • to a higher place
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:46.090
  • of praise.
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:47.180
  • You have come to Mount Zion.
  • 00:16:47.210 --> 00:16:50.210
  • The problem is, we sing things
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:56.180
  • that we don't understand, and we
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:59.260
  • say things that we don't
  • 00:16:59.260 --> 00:17:02.270
  • understand.
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:04.200
  • Now, buckle your seat belts,
  • 00:17:04.200 --> 00:17:07.030
  • 'cause I'm getting ready to take
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:08.210
  • you somewhere.
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:10.050
  • "But you have come to Mount

  • Zion, to the city of the living
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:18.170
  • God."
  • 00:17:20.090 --> 00:17:23.090
  • It means that when you praise
  • 00:17:23.090 --> 00:17:24.240
  • God on this frequency, you are
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:29.270
  • coming into a realm that is not
  • 00:17:30.230 --> 00:17:33.230
  • of this world.
  • 00:17:35.060 --> 00:17:38.060
  • Oh, I'm gonna prove it to you.
  • 00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:40.040
  • I know you think you're in your
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:42.190
  • kitchen.
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:50.080
  • I know it looks like you're in

  • your kitchen, but if you praise
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:53.250
  • him deeply, and get on the right
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:57.150
  • frequency, don't believe your
