  • 00:00:01.080 --> 00:00:08.000
  • Apostle Frederick K.C. Price: Welcome to
  • 00:00:08.080 --> 00:00:09.210
  • "Ever Increasing Faith."
  • 00:00:09.220 --> 00:00:11.010
  • Dr. Betty Price: Grow in godliness.
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:14.000
  • Pastor Frederick K. Price Jr.: We walk by faith,
  • 00:00:14.010 --> 00:00:15.120
  • not be sight.
  • 00:00:15.130 --> 00:00:17.240
  • With the power of faith,
  • 00:00:18.070 --> 00:00:20.290
  • you can do the impossible.
  • 00:00:21.000 --> 00:00:25.010
  • With the power of faith,
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:28.060
  • you can live a victorious life.
  • 00:00:28.070 --> 00:00:31.160
  • Changing one life after another,
  • 00:00:31.170 --> 00:00:35.220
  • from burned out hopes to gleaming joy.
  • 00:00:35.230 --> 00:00:39.100
  • With the power of faith, you can change your life.
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:43.110
  • Let the power of faith transform your life.
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:48.250
  • Apostle Price: Welcome to "Ever Increasing Faith."
  • 00:00:50.120 --> 00:00:53.000
  • Remember these words from the Book of Romans, chapter 10,
  • 00:00:53.010 --> 00:00:56.020
  • verse 17, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by
  • 00:00:56.030 --> 00:01:00.020
  • the Word of God."
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:01.140
  • Praise God for another day and for another privilege
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:03.240
  • and opportunity to share with you, the living Word of God.
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:08.060
  • Today, let's turn in our Bible to the Book of Acts, chapter 10.
  • 00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:13.230
  • The Book of Acts, chapter 10.
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:17.130
  • And while the congregation is finding that, I want to give you
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:20.230
  • that are watching me by television, the same opportunity
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:22.280
  • that was afforded those here in the congregation earlier,
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:26.190
  • and that is, in your case, the opportunity of sending your
  • 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:29.250
  • tithes, offerings and gifts of love for the financial support
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:32.100
  • of "Ever Increasing Faith" television.
  • 00:01:32.110 --> 00:01:35.040
  • [cheering]
  • 00:01:35.050 --> 00:01:40.270
  • Apostle Price: All right.
  • 00:01:41.150 --> 00:01:42.290
  • Now, we're not making all that noise and clapping to be silly,
  • 00:01:43.000 --> 00:01:45.150
  • but the Bible says that God loved the cheerful giver,
  • 00:01:45.160 --> 00:01:48.100
  • and that means a happy and hilarious giver.
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:50.060
  • And we're happy and hilarious about the opportunity that you
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:52.270
  • have to become a partner with us in this great enterprise.
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:56.160
  • I need your faithful financial support, if "Ever Increasing
  • 00:01:56.170 --> 00:02:01.170
  • Faith" television is to remain on the air in your area.
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:04.240
  • I would not dare to suggest how much you should give.
  • 00:02:04.250 --> 00:02:07.100
  • All I would ask you to do is to measure the value of this
  • 00:02:07.110 --> 00:02:10.230
  • ministry to you and yours.
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:12.240
  • If it is valuable and you're thinking it ought to remain on
  • 00:02:12.250 --> 00:02:14.200
  • the air, if you're already a committed faith partner, I would
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:17.190
  • like to ask you to seriously consider becoming a partner
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:21.020
  • with us in faith, in support of this ministry.
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:24.060
  • On the screen is an address where you can mail your
  • 00:02:24.070 --> 00:02:25.290
  • tithe offering or gift of love.
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:27.190
  • Right now, I want to pray for you and pray with you, simply
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:30.220
  • adding my faith to your faith, and setting myself in agreement
  • 00:02:30.230 --> 00:02:34.210
  • with you that you're going to receive the return on your
  • 00:02:34.220 --> 00:02:37.200
  • giving because you will be participating in a spiritual law
  • 00:02:37.210 --> 00:02:41.010
  • called sewing and reaping.
  • 00:02:41.020 --> 00:02:43.190
  • And this ministry is good ground into which to sew, so you have
  • 00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:46.160
  • a right to expect a harvest so that you can have number one:
  • 00:02:46.170 --> 00:02:49.180
  • more seed to live on; and number two: more seed to plant
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:52.250
  • in the future.
  • 00:02:52.260 --> 00:02:54.070
  • Will you join me in prayer?
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:55.230
  • "Father, we praise you and we thank you for the privilege that
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:57.280
  • you've given us in this covenant dispensation of grace, and your
  • 00:02:57.290 --> 00:03:00.150
  • Word declares that you love a cheerful, happy and hilarious
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:03.250
  • giver, and we are indeed happy and hilarious about our
  • 00:03:03.260 --> 00:03:06.250
  • privilege and opportunity to give to you through the ministry
  • 00:03:06.260 --> 00:03:10.010
  • of "Ever Increasing Faith" television.
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:11.210
  • We thank you also that you provided for us a great high
  • 00:03:11.220 --> 00:03:14.120
  • priest, the Lord Jesus Christ, who ever lives in the holy
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:18.110
  • sanctuary of heaven, to make intercession on our behalf.
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:22.100
  • And dear Jesus, we're thanking you now that as our high priest,
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:24.170
  • you will take the tithes, the offering and gifts of love sent
  • 00:03:24.180 --> 00:03:27.270
  • by the people for the support of this ministry before the Father
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:31.240
  • and you will worship him with them on our behalf,
  • 00:03:31.250 --> 00:03:34.200
  • and for that we thank you.
  • 00:03:34.210 --> 00:03:36.230
  • Now Father, as pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center Church
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:39.230
  • here locally, and as pastor of "Ever Increasing Faith"
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:42.110
  • television for many thousands who are watching me now, I set
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:45.190
  • myself in agreement with each and every one of them, that they
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:49.080
  • will receive the corresponding return on their giving and that
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:52.020
  • all of their individual and family needs, along with the
  • 00:03:52.030 --> 00:03:55.130
  • needs of "Ever Increasing Faith" television, are met according to
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:59.060
  • your riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:03.180
  • For this, we thank you and praise you in Jesus's
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:05.210
  • mighty name."
  • 00:04:05.220 --> 00:04:07.100
  • And all who agreed with that prayers said, "Amen."
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:09.280
  • Thank you so very much for your faithful and continued support
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:12.080
  • of "Ever Increasing Faith" television.
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.080
  • You are helping to make it happen.
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:16.050
  • Please be advised that this television ministry was never
  • 00:04:16.060 --> 00:04:19.060
  • intended to be a substitute for belonging to, going to and being
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:24.140
  • part of a local church, and/or pastor in your area,
  • 00:04:24.150 --> 00:04:29.020
  • so seek out that church.
  • 00:04:29.030 --> 00:04:30.200
  • If you have not found one yet, well then by all means, continue
  • 00:04:30.210 --> 00:04:32.240
  • to draw from "Ever Increasing Faith" television.
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:35.150
  • Okay, let's get it on.
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:40.040
  • We are talking about "Race, Religion and Racism."
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:48.220
  • "Race, Religion and Racism."
  • 00:04:48.230 --> 00:04:52.170
  • And last Sunday, I started this series and I began by
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:58.080
  • introducing some things to you so I want to at least say this
  • 00:04:58.090 --> 00:05:04.030
  • part again for the benefit of new viewers and people that
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:07.230
  • are watching perhaps for the first time.
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:10.190
  • This is a very controversial subject matter.
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:15.270
  • Most people don't want to deal with it and consequently, they
  • 00:05:15.280 --> 00:05:21.170
  • will do everything they can to skirt the issue, but I believe
  • 00:05:21.180 --> 00:05:26.050
  • that I have been given a mandate by God to deal with this area of
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:34.050
  • problem in our nation, primarily in the church.
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:39.140
  • I'm a minister of the gospel.
  • 00:05:39.150 --> 00:05:41.130
  • I am Christian.
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:42.230
  • I believe in the Bible.
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:44.060
  • I believe in God Almighty, Jehovah the Creator.
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:47.130
  • I believe in Jesus Christ, Savior, Redeemer, High Priest of
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:51.000
  • someday coming king.
  • 00:05:51.010 --> 00:05:53.010
  • And so consequently, I have a concern as well as the Father
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:55.160
  • God, that there is racism running rampant in the church.
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:06:02.110
  • And as I said last time, and we read Scripture where Jesus said,
  • 00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:05.290
  • "You are the light of the World.
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:07.170
  • You are the salt of the earth."
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:09.030
  • He didn't say we were the light of the church or the salt of the
  • 00:06:09.040 --> 00:06:11.120
  • church but he said we're the light of the world.
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:13.140
  • So we should be giving the world an example, and we are and we
  • 00:06:13.150 --> 00:06:17.160
  • have, but it's one of them kind of very poor examples.
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:22.120
  • And so, consequently, as the Scripture also says, "Judgment
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:26.250
  • must begin at the house of God," and so that's what
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:30.150
  • we're dealing with.
  • 00:06:30.160 --> 00:06:32.210
  • So because of the nature of the subject, I know from past
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:36.190
  • experience just on the very few things that I was just lead to
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:39.040
  • say off the cuff, that people can't handle it and so they want
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:42.060
  • to write me letters.
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:44.240
  • I don't have time to read some stupid, ignorant letter.
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:49.070
  • I want people who have been blessed and helped by the
  • 00:06:49.080 --> 00:06:52.160
  • ministry, of course to share that the fact that they have
  • 00:06:52.170 --> 00:06:55.220
  • been blessed, but I don't need any letters of criticism.
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:58.160
  • I don't have time.
  • 00:06:58.170 --> 00:06:59.270
  • If you don't agree with the subject matter, as I told you
  • 00:06:59.280 --> 00:07:01.190
  • last time, there's an up channel and a down channel, and an off
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:04.190
  • an on button on your television set, and so consequently,
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:07.210
  • all you got to do is turn it off.
  • 00:07:07.220 --> 00:07:09.020
  • You don't have, there's no obligation to listen to me.
  • 00:07:09.030 --> 00:07:11.060
  • But this message is for certain people and they will
  • 00:07:11.070 --> 00:07:12.270
  • hear the message.
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:14.140
  • So I told you, if you want to write me a letter, that's fine,
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:16.210
  • but you got to put your name on the letter and you have to have
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:20.090
  • a return address on the letter because I reserve the right to
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:24.200
  • read your letter over the air, and I want everybody in the area
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:29.230
  • where you live, your neighbors, I want them to know that is you
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:32.090
  • writing the letter, so that's why I need your name.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:35.140
  • See, that's what's been wrong.
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:38.010
  • All this business has been done in a clandestine way,
  • 00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:40.290
  • undercover, behind closed doors, but Jack is out of the box.
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:47.050
  • We going to put this all out.
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:49.040
  • I'mma put it right on front page, see, and so it's going
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:51.030
  • to be uncovered.
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:52.180
  • So if a letter comes into my office, I'm instructing my
  • 00:07:52.190 --> 00:07:55.210
  • people that if a letter comes in, whether positive or
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:58.100
  • negative, and that letter does not have a name on it
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:01.040
  • and a return address, I will not, watch my lips,
  • 00:08:01.050 --> 00:08:06.010
  • I will not read it.
  • 00:08:06.020 --> 00:08:11.130
  • So save your ink, your paper and above all your stamp.
  • 00:08:11.140 --> 00:08:14.180
  • Okay?
  • 00:08:14.190 --> 00:08:16.160
  • If you want to write, that's fine, but you're going to have
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:18.060
  • to make it right out in the open because I'mma read it.
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:20.290
  • If it's negative, I'm going to read it, I'm going to read it.
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:22.200
  • If it's positive, I'm going to read it.
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:24.210
  • I want everybody to know just how you feel about it.
  • 00:08:24.220 --> 00:08:27.270
  • Now, last time we left off talking about the fact that it
  • 00:08:27.280 --> 00:08:37.280
  • appears, as I said a moment ago, that Jesus said there we're
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:43.150
  • supposed to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth,
  • 00:08:43.160 --> 00:08:46.020
  • but I think a lot of Christians think that he meant that we were
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:48.120
  • to be the taillight, when in fact, he actually meant for us
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:51.030
  • to be the headlight.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:53.000
  • And so, we have problems in this racial situation.
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:57.030
  • Now racism, and when I get into that segment of the actual
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:09:01.210
  • series, I'll give a definition of it.
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:04.090
  • But for right now, just for the practical application of
  • 00:09:04.100 --> 00:09:08.000
  • terminology so that you'll understand what I'm talking
  • 00:09:08.010 --> 00:09:10.190
  • about, when I say racism because that, racism really has to do
  • 00:09:10.200 --> 00:09:14.250
  • with an economic situation, but what we have come traditionally
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:18.200
  • to call racism is really, in fact, racial, and ethnic
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:23.050
  • and color prejudice, okay?
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:26.080
  • Racial, ethnic and color prejudice, and it's gone under
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:30.100
  • the general title of racism.
  • 00:09:30.110 --> 00:09:33.060
  • And of course, that could be a part of it too.
  • 00:09:33.070 --> 00:09:35.220
  • But anyway, when I use the term racism, I mean racial
  • 00:09:35.230 --> 00:09:37.160
  • for right now, for right now.
  • 00:09:37.170 --> 00:09:41.160
  • I mean racial and ethnic color prejudice where people
  • 00:09:41.170 --> 00:09:45.260
  • have a problem with your color.
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:47.150
  • And primarily, it's white people who have a problem with
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:51.260
  • black people with their color.
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:55.040
  • I gave you some things when we talked about it last time and I
  • 00:09:55.050 --> 00:09:58.020
  • know that some of these things could be intimidating
  • 00:09:58.030 --> 00:09:59.220
  • and I don't mean to be that way.
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:02.160
  • I just want to be honest about this.
  • 00:10:02.170 --> 00:10:04.220
  • I am a person that has no hang-ups, I have no hidden
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:08.000
  • agendas, I have don't have any phobias, I'm not afraid of
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:11.160
  • anything or anybody, and I just believe in the truth.
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:14.140
  • I have a principle that I operate on which is called
  • 00:10:14.150 --> 00:10:16.180
  • full disclosure.
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:18.100
  • I believe in letting it all hang out, okay?
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:21.130
  • And so I'm going to talk just like you talk on the street.
  • 00:10:21.140 --> 00:10:23.170
  • I'm going to talk just like you talk across your dinner
  • 00:10:23.180 --> 00:10:25.120
  • table, I'm going to talk just like you talk in your bed when
  • 00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:27.260
  • you're a husband and wife talking about down there
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:29.110
  • in South Central LA.
  • 00:10:29.120 --> 00:10:30.290
  • I'm going to use those terms.
  • 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:32.190
  • I'm not trying to be crass, I'm not trying to be offensive,
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:34.220
  • but I just want to talk the way you talk.
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:36.220
  • I want to be sure you understand what I'm talking about, and I
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:39.250
  • guarantee you, I will make you very aware of what I'm talking
  • 00:10:39.260 --> 00:10:42.260
  • about, but I want to use terms that y'all use on the street,
  • 00:10:42.270 --> 00:10:47.050
  • 'cause that's where all this stuff is going on.
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:48.260
  • Okay?
  • 00:10:48.270 --> 00:10:50.100
  • Now, last time we stopped off that with this, with a
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:55.170
  • Scripture, and we're not going to read it again but I mentioned
  • 00:10:55.180 --> 00:10:59.040
  • it a moment ago, where it talks about judgment must begin
  • 00:10:59.050 --> 00:11:01.030
  • in the house of God.
  • 00:11:01.040 --> 00:11:03.040
  • And I said that the attitude of the Christian towards racial,
  • 00:11:03.050 --> 00:11:08.050
  • ethnic and color differences in mankind should be
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:14.030
  • the same as God's.
  • 00:11:14.040 --> 00:11:16.180
  • Let me say that again.
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:19.150
  • I said, "The attitude of Christians towards racial,
  • 00:11:19.160 --> 00:11:29.090
  • ethnic and color differences
  • 00:11:29.100 --> 00:11:33.280
  • in mankind
  • 00:11:33.290 --> 00:11:35.290
  • should be the same as God's."
  • 00:11:36.000 --> 00:11:41.010
  • Our attitudes, if we are God's children and claim to know Jesus
  • 00:11:42.060 --> 00:11:48.190
  • Christ as our personal Savior and Lord, then our attitude
  • 00:11:48.200 --> 00:11:53.250
  • towards mankind from an ethnic, racial and color perspective
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:12:02.260
  • ought to be the same as God.
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:04.290
  • Is that reasonable?
  • 00:12:05.000 --> 00:12:07.000
  • I mean is that unreasonable?
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:09.000
  • I mean shouldn't--don't you think that we ought to think
  • 00:12:09.010 --> 00:12:11.110
  • like our Father thinks.
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:13.120
  • See, we ought to think like God thinks about it.
  • 00:12:13.130 --> 00:12:15.050
  • So we want to find out from the Scripture how does God view,
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:20.040
  • how does God see racial and ethnic differences.
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:24.010
  • You know we have, I used this term last time.
  • 00:12:24.020 --> 00:12:26.100
  • People use the term the white race, and the black race,
  • 00:12:26.110 --> 00:12:30.080
  • and the brown race, and the yellow race and the red race.
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:35.250
  • Well, there is no such thing.
  • 00:12:35.260 --> 00:12:37.280
  • It's a misnomer.
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:39.120
  • So our attitude toward the ethnic differences, color
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:46.060
  • differences, racial differences, which are all exterior by the
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:52.190
  • way, all of those things, our attitude ought to be
  • 00:12:52.200 --> 00:12:55.270
  • the same as God's.
  • 00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:57.280
  • Why? Because God created you.
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:12:59.200
  • And if God created you black, it must have been
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:02.120
  • all right with him.
  • 00:13:02.130 --> 00:13:03.250
  • And if it's all right with him, it's got to be all right with
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:05.270
  • everybody else 'cause the rest of the folk don't count.
  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:08.250
  • And if he created white, or red, or brown or yellow, whatever, it
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:11.210
  • must have been all right with him because we all
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:14.290
  • came from him.
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:19.010
  • So if we're all right with him, we ought to be all right
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:21.160
  • with each other.
  • 00:13:21.170 --> 00:13:23.200
  • And if we're not all right with each other then you
  • 00:13:23.210 --> 00:13:26.290
  • have a problem.
  • 00:13:27.000 --> 00:13:32.080
  • Okay.
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.080
  • Now Acts chapter 10, we looked at this last time but--and I'm
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:38.020
  • reading from the New King James version of the Bible.
  • 00:13:38.030 --> 00:13:41.020
  • This is a story of Peter.
  • 00:13:41.030 --> 00:13:42.210
  • He had a housetop experience where God showed him that there
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:45.220
  • is no clean or unclean and that he shouldn't call anybody common
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:49.130
  • or unclean that God has cleansed.
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:51.150
  • And so he was led by the Holy Spirit to go
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:53.100
  • to a Gentile's home.
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:54.270
  • Peter was an Orthodox Jew and it was absolutely unheard of that
  • 00:13:54.280 --> 00:13:59.040
  • an Orthodox Jew should go into a Gentile's home.
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:02.120
  • I mean the twain never met.
  • 00:14:02.130 --> 00:14:04.110
  • They just did not fellowship together.
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:06.170
  • And so Peter had a problem with this.
  • 00:14:06.180 --> 00:14:09.040
  • And so, God supernaturally revealed to him that it was all
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:13.040
  • right, and that what God has cleansed that let no man call
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:16.200
  • that common.
  • 00:14:16.210 --> 00:14:18.040
  • Anyway, the long--the short of the long is Peter arrived at the
  • 00:14:18.050 --> 00:14:20.280
  • man's house and asked why he had been called.
  • 00:14:20.290 --> 00:14:25.090
  • The man told him about a vision that he had had of an angel, and
  • 00:14:25.100 --> 00:14:27.190
  • that the angel had told him to go send to Joppa for a man named
  • 00:14:27.200 --> 00:14:31.000
  • Simon Peter, and he'll tell me and my house words whereby
  • 00:14:31.010 --> 00:14:33.290
  • we can be safe.
  • 00:14:34.000 --> 00:14:35.130
  • That's sort of the background of the story.
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:37.010
  • Now, Peter comes to the house and the man tells him just what
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:40.260
  • I mentioned to you, and Peter came up with this
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:42.260
  • wonderful revelation.
  • 00:14:42.270 --> 00:14:44.240
  • See, it was a revelation to him, because see up to this time, the
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:48.260
  • tenth chapter of Acts, geographically and historically
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:51.230
  • speaking is approximately ten years from the day of Pentecost,
  • 00:14:51.240 --> 00:14:55.150
  • and up till that time, the gospel had primarily only been
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:59.140
  • given to Jews because Peter and the apostles thought it was an
  • 00:14:59.150 --> 00:15:03.260
  • extension of the old Israelite economy and that Christianity
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:08.020
  • was simply something new and more expanded for Jews,
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:11.180
  • and Jews only, not for Gentiles.
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:14.170
  • And so, it was a rude awakening for Peter to find out that the
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:17.190
  • Gentiles also could get in on this.
  • 00:15:17.200 --> 00:15:20.140
  • Now, here we go, verse 34 and 35, "Then Peter opened his mouth
  • 00:15:20.150 --> 00:15:24.100
  • and said, 'In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality,
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:28.130
  • but in every nation, whoever fears him and works
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:32.080
  • righteousness is accepted by him.'"
  • 00:15:32.090 --> 00:15:34.290
  • Is accepted by him. Is accepted by him.
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:38.210
  • Is accepted by him.
  • 00:15:38.220 --> 00:15:41.100
  • We could paraphrase it and say this, say it this way,
  • 00:15:41.110 --> 00:15:43.210
  • is accepted by God Almighty.
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:48.010
  • What is your problem?
  • 00:15:48.020 --> 00:15:52.010
  • All right, listen to this now, "Then Peter opened his mouth and
  • 00:15:52.020 --> 00:15:54.160
  • said, 'In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.'"
  • 00:15:54.170 --> 00:15:57.060
  • Now, in the traditional King James Bible,
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:59.180
  • it says, "No respecter of persons."
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:02.070
  • So if God is no respecter of persons, wake that man up.
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:05.240
  • If God is no respecter of persons, then we can't truly be
  • 00:16:05.250 --> 00:16:10.220
  • God's children and be respecters of persons.
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:16.070
  • Something is radically wrong.
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:19.180
  • Okay, listen again.
  • 00:16:19.190 --> 00:16:21.090
  • "Then Peter opened his mouth and said, 'In truth I perceive that
  • 00:16:21.100 --> 00:16:24.130
  • God shows no partiality, but in every nation.'"
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:31.230
  • How many nations? Every nation.
  • 00:16:31.240 --> 00:16:35.000
  • Well, I pointed this out last time but I want to
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:36.280
  • reemphasize it.
  • 00:16:36.290 --> 00:16:38.220
  • It says every nation.
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:43.180
  • So would I be safe in making this delineation.
  • 00:16:43.190 --> 00:16:49.030
  • Now, you tell me, I'm asking for the--from the court of appeal.
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:53.040
  • I want y'all to tell me if you think is stressing it.
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:55.130
  • If, if, if, if, if, if, if, if it's, if it's, if, if, if it's
  • 00:16:55.140 --> 00:17:01.290
  • every nation, and my little brain, my mind tells me if it's
  • 00:17:02.000 --> 00:17:09.140
  • every nation, then, and I want to make this real plain,
  • 00:17:09.150 --> 00:17:13.090
  • that be meaning ain't no nation left out.
  • 00:17:13.100 --> 00:17:22.120
  • Can y'all go along with that?
  • 00:17:22.130 --> 00:17:24.040
  • Is that--that's my read, that it means no nations are left out.
  • 00:17:24.050 --> 00:17:28.150
  • That right?
  • 00:17:28.160 --> 00:17:30.140
  • Well, there is a black nation, and a white, and a red, and a
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:40.150
  • brown and a yellow, what we call 'em, so if no nations are left
  • 00:17:40.180 --> 00:17:44.110
  • out, then that mean the black nation is included.
  • 00:17:44.120 --> 00:17:53.100
  • Thank you for those seven amens, I appreciate that.
  • 00:17:53.110 --> 00:17:56.110
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:17:56.120 --> 00:17:58.050
  • But it says, verse 35, "But in every nation whoever fears him,"
  • 00:17:58.060 --> 00:18:04.230
  • that means reverences God, "and works righteousness
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:10.130
  • is accepted by him."
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:19.140
  • So I still want to know what's your problem,
  • 00:18:20.120 --> 00:18:23.200
  • that you can't accept me.
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:33.140
  • What is your problem that you can't accept me but God can?
  • 00:18:33.250 --> 00:18:39.010
  • You're telling me then that you're greater than God.
  • 00:18:39.020 --> 00:18:44.100
  • I don't think you want to go there.
  • 00:18:44.110 --> 00:18:49.090
  • I don't know why but I just get some strange feeling.
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:51.110
  • I don't think you really want to go there.
  • 00:18:51.120 --> 00:18:53.190
  • All right, let's go to another Scripture, Acts chapter 17.
  • 00:18:53.200 --> 00:18:59.030
  • Actually, that's where we left off when we ran out of time.
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:02.040
  • I need to extend these sessions, we need an hour and a half or
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:04.170
  • something like that.
  • 00:19:04.180 --> 00:19:07.050
  • [cheering]
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:11.100
  • Apostle Price: See, I have to, I have to lay this
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:14.020
  • groundwork because this racial thing, this prejudiced thing,
  • 00:19:14.030 --> 00:19:19.060
  • this racism thing is so deeply ingrained in America,
  • 00:19:19.070 --> 00:19:27.030
  • and in the church, and it has to be rooted out.
  • 00:19:27.040 --> 00:19:32.080
  • Sometimes, when you have roots that go way down, got to do
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:36.200
  • a lot of digging, and lot of cutting in order to get down to
  • 00:19:36.210 --> 00:19:41.150
  • the tap route and pull that turkey out of the ground.
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:46.220
  • So I've got to lay a foundation.
  • 00:19:46.230 --> 00:19:49.220
  • Okay, Acts 17, and lets go--begin with verse 24.
  • 00:19:49.230 --> 00:19:56.140
  • "God, who made the world."
  • 00:19:56.150 --> 00:20:00.040
  • O Lord, oh, oh.
  • 00:20:00.050 --> 00:20:02.110
  • Oh, oh. Look at this.
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:05.120
  • "God, who made the world and everything in it."
  • 00:20:05.130 --> 00:20:14.000
  • Oh.
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:16.130
  • All right, "God who made the world and everything in it,
  • 00:20:16.140 --> 00:20:18.200
  • since he is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:21.250
  • made with hands, nor is he worshiped with men's hand, as
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:25.030
  • though he needed anything, since he gives to all life,
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:28.080
  • gives to all life, breath, and all things."
  • 00:20:28.090 --> 00:20:35.260
  • Well, well, well, well, well since God gives to all, life,
  • 00:20:35.270 --> 00:20:45.270
  • breath and all things, then that means God gives life and breath
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:53.160
  • to white folks, and black folks, and yellow folks,
  • 00:20:53.170 --> 00:21:00.250
  • and red folks and brown folks.
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:04.010
  • So I don't understand what you're crowing about like you
  • 00:21:04.020 --> 00:21:06.100
  • got something special.
  • 00:21:06.110 --> 00:21:07.230
  • You ain't squat.
  • 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:09.100
  • You got yours from the same place that I got mine,
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:12.090
  • so what--how does that make you better than?
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:15.120
  • And how does that make me inferior to you?
  • 00:21:15.130 --> 00:21:19.070
  • Now, now let me say this, I'll get into it later with the
  • 00:21:19.080 --> 00:21:23.010
  • actual Scripture to bear this out but it may appear to some
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:27.110
  • that I am angry so I don't you want you to get intimidated.
  • 00:21:27.120 --> 00:21:31.100
  • I am angry.
  • 00:21:31.110 --> 00:21:32.270
  • I'm angry with a holy, righteous anger.
  • 00:21:32.280 --> 00:21:35.180
  • I'm angry with the same kind of anger that Jesus had when he
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:38.100
  • whipped dem turkeys out of the temple for selling and buying
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:41.060
  • in the temple.
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:43.100
  • That's the kind of anger.
  • 00:21:43.110 --> 00:21:44.270
  • Okay so--all right let's move on.
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:51.270
  • Verse 25, "Nor is he worshiped with men's hands, as though he
  • 00:21:52.150 --> 00:21:54.290
  • needed anything, since he gives to all life, breath,
  • 00:21:55.000 --> 00:21:56.280
  • and all things.
  • 00:21:56.290 --> 00:21:58.120
  • And he has made from one blood every nation of men, and he has
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:22:01.110
  • made from one blood every nation of men, he has made from one
  • 00:22:01.120 --> 00:22:05.060
  • blood every nation of men, he has made from one blood every
  • 00:22:05.070 --> 00:22:09.020
  • nation of men, for he, and he has made from one blood, one
  • 00:22:09.030 --> 00:22:13.230
  • blood, one blood, one blood, one blood, one blood, one blood, one
  • 00:22:13.240 --> 00:22:19.200
  • blood, one blood, one blood, one blood, every nation of men
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:27.250
  • to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their
  • 00:22:27.260 --> 00:22:33.140
  • preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings."
  • 00:22:33.150 --> 00:22:38.040
  • Now, listen to this, verse--the first part of the 26th verse,
  • 00:22:38.050 --> 00:22:40.110
  • "And he has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell
  • 00:22:40.120 --> 00:22:42.230
  • on the earth."
  • 00:22:42.240 --> 00:22:44.110
  • So, if God has made--see, I told you there's only one race.
  • 00:22:44.120 --> 00:22:47.240
  • It's just different shades of color, and the only difference
  • 00:22:47.250 --> 00:22:50.010
  • in that some people have more melanin in their skin
  • 00:22:50.020 --> 00:22:52.170
  • than other people do.
  • 00:22:52.180 --> 00:22:53.280
  • That's what makes the color, melanin.
  • 00:22:53.290 --> 00:22:55.090
  • Okay?
  • 00:22:55.100 --> 00:22:56.260
  • And if you don't any melanin, you're an albino.
  • 00:22:56.270 --> 00:22:58.140
  • You're white as snow.
  • 00:22:58.150 --> 00:23:00.100
  • But if you're what we call normal, then you have melanin
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:02.010
  • to greater or lesser degrees.
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:03.170
  • That's all it is.
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:05.020
  • Same flesh, all human flesh is the same flesh.
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:07.060
  • Now, watch this, God has made out of one blood.
  • 00:23:07.070 --> 00:23:10.170
  • Now, this conspiracy that's been hatched here in America and that
  • 00:23:10.180 --> 00:23:14.210
  • started in the days of slavery, and is started for the purposes
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:17.060
  • I said last time, and I'm going to have to keep going back to
  • 00:23:17.070 --> 00:23:19.250
  • this, because see, we have to find out how the thing started
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:24.090
  • so we can go back and fix it.
  • 00:23:24.100 --> 00:23:28.200
  • If we don't know why it's malfunctioning now, then we wont
  • 00:23:28.210 --> 00:23:33.010
  • know how to fix it, but if we can go back to the origin and
  • 00:23:33.020 --> 00:23:36.180
  • find out now, how did this thing get bent out of shape like this,
  • 00:23:36.190 --> 00:23:40.070
  • then we can fix it.
  • 00:23:40.080 --> 00:23:41.270
  • So we've got to go back.
  • 00:23:41.280 --> 00:23:43.140
  • Now, a lot of people get upset with this, they say, "Well,
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:45.010
  • don't you just forget the past, forget the past."
  • 00:23:45.020 --> 00:23:46.200
  • Okay, then why don't you forget your that blame birthday?
  • 00:23:46.210 --> 00:23:51.070
  • Why don't you forget the fact that you were born 27 years ago?
  • 00:23:51.080 --> 00:23:54.070
  • If it's all right to remember that, then it's all right to
  • 00:23:54.080 --> 00:23:56.140
  • remember how this garbage got started.
  • 00:23:56.150 --> 00:24:02.130
  • Okay? All right?
  • 00:24:02.140 --> 00:24:06.010
  • So the Bible says that's there's only one blood.
  • 00:24:06.020 --> 00:24:08.270
  • There ain't so such thing as black blood, and there's no such
  • 00:24:08.280 --> 00:24:15.260
  • thing as white blood, or red, brown or yellow blood.
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:19.180
  • It's all one blood. Can you read?
  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:22.260
  • The book said God made out of one blood.
  • 00:24:22.270 --> 00:24:27.240
  • One blood.
  • 00:24:27.250 --> 00:24:29.090
  • Now see, if you take groups of people, now we know this from
  • 00:24:29.100 --> 00:24:33.130
  • interbreeding with animals like dogs or things.
  • 00:24:33.140 --> 00:24:36.020
  • If you take a group of people and isolate them from the
  • 00:24:36.030 --> 00:24:38.150
  • general total population, then they will inbreed together and
  • 00:24:38.160 --> 00:24:42.170
  • they will develop certain strains of things that will have
  • 00:24:42.180 --> 00:24:45.170
  • certain characteristics that wouldn't have
  • 00:24:45.180 --> 00:24:47.010
  • in the out group out here.
  • 00:24:47.020 --> 00:24:49.070
  • So that's why it might make it look like a different
  • 00:24:49.080 --> 00:24:51.050
  • but it's the same blood.
  • 00:24:51.060 --> 00:24:56.170
  • Blood is blood is blood.
  • 00:24:56.180 --> 00:24:59.240
  • Now, I don't, I'm not, I'm not a doctor but I think
  • 00:24:59.250 --> 00:25:01.190
  • we have medical people here.
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:03.180
  • And I want, I want to, I want to wax eloquent and use big words
  • 00:25:03.190 --> 00:25:08.120
  • every once in while so y'all think I got some sense.
  • 00:25:08.130 --> 00:25:10.160
  • And so, I don't know what the name of the person would be,
  • 00:25:10.170 --> 00:25:14.200
  • but doesn't hematology have something to do with blood?
  • 00:25:14.210 --> 00:25:18.090
  • That that has something? I am close to that doctors?
  • 00:25:18.100 --> 00:25:20.150
  • A person who studies blood or deals with blood,
  • 00:25:20.160 --> 00:25:23.120
  • would be a hematologist?
  • 00:25:23.130 --> 00:25:26.100
  • Hey, I get that. Go on, girl.
  • 00:25:26.110 --> 00:25:28.250
  • You see the kid. Hey, all kind of extra.
  • 00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:30.180
  • I know a little bit about nothing.
  • 00:25:30.190 --> 00:25:32.070
  • I mean, anyway, praise the Lord.
  • 00:25:32.080 --> 00:25:33.170
  • But now, watch it, I'll guarantee you, and here's the
  • 00:25:33.180 --> 00:25:36.010
  • thing that you need to show you that it's one blood, you can
  • 00:25:36.020 --> 00:25:40.120
  • give transfusions to any racial group from any other
  • 00:25:40.130 --> 00:25:45.010
  • racial group with comparable blood type.
  • 00:25:45.020 --> 00:25:49.190
