  • this written Word and the integrity of anointed teaching
  • 00:00:04.060 --> 00:00:11.240
  • of this written Word. (Singing) I know my God has made the way
  • 00:00:11.250 --> 00:00:20.260
  • for me. I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:35.180
  • ANNOUNCER: Welcome to the Believer's Voice of
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:37.260
  • Victory. Join Kenneth Copeland today as he
  • 00:00:37.270 --> 00:00:39.260
  • teaches about strengthening your faith in the written
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:42.130
  • Word of God and allowing the Word to govern
  • 00:00:42.140 --> 00:00:45.100
  • your thoughts. Now, here's Kenneth Copeland.
  • 00:00:45.110 --> 00:00:49.000
  • KENNETH: Greater is He that is in you than
  • 00:00:51.160 --> 00:00:56.150
  • he that is in the world." Mm, mm, mm, mm. The
  • 00:00:56.160 --> 00:01:01.240
  • greater One-- Say it, "The greater One lives on the inside
  • 00:01:01.250 --> 00:01:05.030
  • of me." Oh, my, my, my, my, my. "My faith is growing. The fruit
  • 00:01:05.040 --> 00:01:10.020
  • of the Spirit is growing: Love, joy, peace, goodness. Our
  • 00:01:10.030 --> 00:01:20.240
  • gentleness, goodness--" Hallelujah. "--faith, kindness,
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:29.040
  • meekness, temperance." (Praying in the Spirit) "Listen to my
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:39.060
  • meekness, temperance." (Praying in the Spirit) "Listen to my
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:50.190
  • Word," saith the Spirit, the spirit of grace. "I have great
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:59.190
  • desire to manifest My presence around you. But My presence is
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:08.210
  • the love of God. My presence is the grace of the Father. My
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:13.160
  • presence is all of these things listed here in Galatians 5. And
  • 00:02:13.170 --> 00:02:20.230
  • when you are--when your words are stout against Me, then I
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:27.150
  • can't manifest Myself like I desire. I said in My Word, 'He
  • 00:02:27.160 --> 00:02:34.250
  • that loves me keeps My commandments, or you do what My
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:43.150
  • Word says for you to do. I will love him. My Father will love
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:49.230
  • him. And I will manifest Myself to him. These are the times of
  • 00:02:49.240 --> 00:02:58.060
  • My mercy and My grace. These are the days that I have chosen to
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:03:05.070
  • pour out Myself upon all flesh like never before in the history
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:11.180
  • of this planet. So listen carefully to My voice. Listen
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:16.060
  • carefully to those things that you are being taught because
  • 00:03:16.070 --> 00:03:20.070
  • this is spirit and this is truth. And they that hear and
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:24.220
  • worship Me in spirit and in truth will surely know My voice,
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:29.200
  • will surely become strong in faith. And you can become as
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:34.110
  • much like Me as I am like My Father,' saith the Lord Jesus
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:38.130
  • Christ. "And understand that I love you, I love you, I love
  • 00:03:38.140 --> 00:03:44.190
  • you. And I will never ever let you go.'" Oh, thank You, Father.
  • 00:03:44.200 --> 00:03:52.130
  • Thank You, Father. Mm. Let's just--let's praise Him for a
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:56.030
  • moment. Oh, praise You, Father. Praise You, Lord. Jesus, we give
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:04:01.190
  • praise and worship to You. Help us, Lord. We receive Your help.
  • 00:04:01.200 --> 00:04:05.290
  • Say, "The greater One, the Spirit of the living God who is
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:13.060
  • greater than he that's in the world is in me right now working
  • 00:04:13.070 --> 00:04:21.120
  • with my spirit, working on and in my mind, healing my body. And
  • 00:04:21.130 --> 00:04:35.000
  • I have the joy of the Lord because I have the love of God.
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:40.000
  • And I receive these words and teachings because I have faith
  • 00:04:40.010 --> 00:04:45.270
  • in my heart and I believe it in my heart and I say it with my
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:49.160
  • mouth. And I thank You that it does come to pass." Now just
  • 00:04:49.170 --> 00:04:54.090
  • give Him praise. And, oh, glory to God. Hallelujah. Thank You,
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:59.150
  • Jesus. Thank You, Jesus. Well, I'm not through praising. Just
  • 00:04:59.160 --> 00:05:03.150
  • help me praise God. Now--thank You, Lord Jesus. Mm. My, my, my.
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:14.210
  • Glory, glory, glory, glory, glory. Thank You, Lord. Thank
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:21.140
  • You, Lord. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Jesus. Praise You,
  • 00:05:21.150 --> 00:05:26.280
  • Lord. Thank You, Lord Jesus. All right, glory. Glory be to Jesus.
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:34.080
  • Thank You, Father. Now, let's--let's refresh ourselves
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:40.110
  • again. Let's go over to Mark 11. Faith is of the heart, not the
  • 00:05:40.120 --> 00:05:52.000
  • head. Say it with me, "Faith is of the heart, not the head." Say
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:06:03.180
  • it again, "Faith is of the heart and not the head or the mind."
  • 00:06:03.190 --> 00:06:09.080
  • Jesus said, in Mark 11:22, "Jesus answering said unto them,
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:14.220
  • Have faith in God," or have the faith of God. "For verily I say
  • 00:06:14.230 --> 00:06:19.080
  • unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain--" Now,
  • 00:06:19.090 --> 00:06:23.010
  • whosoever, anybody can do this. Any born-again believer can do
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:29.080
  • this, and this is the way you get born again. "Whosoever shall
  • 00:06:29.090 --> 00:06:34.090
  • say unto this mountain--" I want you to notice something here.
  • 00:06:34.100 --> 00:06:37.260
  • And I learned this from Brother Hagin many years ago. I'm going
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:43.190
  • to use "say" on this side, and I'm going to use "believe" on
  • 00:06:43.200 --> 00:06:48.080
  • this side. Are you with me now? "Verily I say unto this
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:51.200
  • mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:54.240
  • shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those
  • 00:06:54.250 --> 00:07:00.270
  • things which he saith--" Let's back up a little bit. I messed
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:03.290
  • this thing up. "Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou
  • 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:08.270
  • removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and not doubt in his
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:11.190
  • heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith
  • 00:07:11.200 --> 00:07:16.030
  • shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." He
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:21.280
  • used the word "believe" once and "saying it" three times. Now,
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:27.200
  • what does that tell us? This tells us that we have been
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:31.200
  • taught, over the years, as people and believers--we've been
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:35.150
  • taught to believe--but very, very, very small amount compared
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:41.190
  • to the overall. There's more now than there's ever been, but it's
  • 00:07:41.200 --> 00:07:44.180
  • still small compared to the whole body of Christ--the
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:50.120
  • importance of words connected with believing because you
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:55.120
  • believe it in your heart, but you hadn't released it when you
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:57.250
  • believe it in your heart until you say it with your mouth.
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:08:00.020
  • "Therefore I say--" Now, see, Jesus turned right around and
  • 00:08:00.030 --> 00:08:06.060
  • used it. He did the very same thing that He was talking about.
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:08.260
  • "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:15.170
  • you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:19.240
  • them. And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have
  • 00:08:19.250 --> 00:08:23.190
  • ought against any." Now let's talk about that aspect of it
  • 00:08:23.200 --> 00:08:26.200
  • here for a moment. Faith will not work if you have an air of
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:37.160
  • unforgiveness about you. Now, notice he said that right there.
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:41.040
  • "When you stand praying, forgive." "Well, Brother
  • 00:08:41.050 --> 00:08:43.160
  • Copeland, I've been--you know I've been a long time trying to
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:47.200
  • do that." No, He didn't say, "try to do it," and it don't
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:50.000
  • take long. He said, "when you stand praying." You can't stand
  • 00:08:50.010 --> 00:08:53.000
  • there two weeks! While you're praying, I mean, do it right
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:56.230
  • now. "You don't know what they did!" It don't matter what they
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:09:01.160
  • did. You've got a commander-in-chief, His name is
  • 00:09:01.170 --> 00:09:03.250
  • Jesus. It don't make any difference what you think about
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:05.200
  • it. You have an order from command. You have an order from
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:09.070
  • heaven to do it! Whether you like it or not. "Sir! Yes, sir!
  • 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:15.100
  • They're forgiven! Amen. Come on faith, work!" And then, you
  • 00:09:15.110 --> 00:09:22.120
  • know, you go to church Sunday and there she comes, right
  • 00:09:22.130 --> 00:09:27.030
  • there, just bigger than all get-out. There she is. (Snarls)
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:32.160
  • "I thought I forgave her!" That forgiveness was an act of your
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:39.260
  • will, not your feelings. Don't let the devil throw you with
  • 00:09:39.270 --> 00:09:43.250
  • that. Say, "No, no, no, no." Say, "Nope, nope, nope, nope. I
  • 00:09:43.260 --> 00:09:47.100
  • chose to forgive, and I did that in the name of the Lord Jesus
  • 00:09:47.110 --> 00:09:52.230
  • Christ of Nazareth. Now shut up feeling!" Those are
  • 00:09:52.240 --> 00:09:56.020
  • just--those--those are physical and mental feelings and emotions
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:10:01.140
  • that you took some time to develop. And you're going to
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:05.170
  • have to take authority over them and put them down, put them
  • 00:10:05.180 --> 00:10:08.030
  • where they belong. And faith does that, "Casting down
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:10.110
  • imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against
  • 00:10:10.120 --> 00:10:13.190
  • the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:18.270
  • the obedience of Christ Jesus." Amen. So do it! That's what
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:24.240
  • you're called to do. Do it! And Jesus will back you. The Holy
  • 00:10:24.250 --> 00:10:29.200
  • Spirit will come up in there. You just keep on, "Well, I'm
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:33.080
  • looking to feel something." Quit that feeling. Cut the feelings
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:36.100
  • out. Feelings have nothing to do with any of this. Remember what
  • 00:10:36.110 --> 00:10:39.150
  • I said, that--that Jesus told Thomas? He said, you know, "Feel
  • 00:10:39.160 --> 00:10:43.080
  • in my hands, feel in my side." "My Lord! My God!" Jesus said,
  • 00:10:43.090 --> 00:10:48.050
  • "You believe because you could feel it." And He said, "Thomas,
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:50.260
  • quit being faithless. Blessed are those who have believed and
  • 00:10:50.270 --> 00:10:55.120
  • not seen." It's when you believe these things because Jesus said
  • 00:10:55.130 --> 00:10:58.050
  • them. You believe this thing because the Word said them.
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:11:00.110
  • You're like the centurion that said I'm--"Jesus, you don't have
  • 00:11:00.120 --> 00:11:04.010
  • to come to my house." Remember when he talked about that? "You
  • 00:11:04.020 --> 00:11:06.060
  • don't have to come to my house. No, no, no. I'm a man under
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:09.160
  • authority. I tell a man to go and he goes. I tell him when to
  • 00:11:09.170 --> 00:11:13.080
  • come and he comes. All you have to do is speak the word, my
  • 00:11:13.090 --> 00:11:15.270
  • servant will be healed." Jesus didn't even go to the man's
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:19.120
  • house. He said, "You don't--you don't have to come under my
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:25.170
  • roof. I'm unworthy for you to come to my house anyway." See,
  • 00:11:25.180 --> 00:11:28.290
  • he was a Gentile. And he said "You just say it." Jesus said,
  • 00:11:29.000 --> 00:11:34.230
  • "I have not found so great a faith in all of Israel." That is
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:41.040
  • faith in God's written word. The integrity of this Word is just
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:52.040
  • as real as if Jesus stood right there in front of you and said,
  • 00:11:52.050 --> 00:11:57.200
  • "by my stripes you were healed," and it will bring more faith
  • 00:11:57.210 --> 00:12:02.120
  • than that. The apostle Peter said, "We saw and heard, but
  • 00:12:02.130 --> 00:12:06.030
  • there is--there is a higher, more powerful Word." And talking
  • 00:12:06.040 --> 00:12:18.090
  • about Scripture. Then seeing that on the Mountain of
  • 00:12:18.100 --> 00:12:21.240
  • Transfiguration? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Your feelings and your
  • 00:12:21.250 --> 00:12:26.280
  • mental part gets in the way. "Oh, I believe it now because I
  • 00:12:26.290 --> 00:12:30.150
  • saw it." No, your heart doesn't. You've mentally approved of it
  • 00:12:30.160 --> 00:12:34.290
  • and said, "Oh, yeah, I saw it. I believe that I saw it." Well,
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:39.090
  • when time gets a little rough, you'll fall off of that--that
  • 00:12:39.100 --> 00:12:43.160
  • stump. You know, "Well, if I could just see a miracle."
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:47.120
  • Really? The new birth is the most powerful miracle there is.
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:55.020
  • "Yeah, but I need--you know, I just--I just need to--I need to
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:13:01.120
  • see an angel. If an angel--" Well, then, hey, if you keep
  • 00:13:01.130 --> 00:13:04.040
  • pushing for that, the devil is a fallen angel. And the Word said
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:07.050
  • he'll come to you as an angel of light and deceive you.
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:10.230
  • (Pompously) "I have come from the almighty God." You can rest
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:18.090
  • assured he'll talk perpendicular because that's the way religion
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:22.110
  • talks. (Laughs) It don't talk straight, you know. "God, God
  • 00:13:22.120 --> 00:13:29.140
  • Almighty--(Snorts)--has sent me to tell you today that it's not
  • 00:13:29.150 --> 00:13:38.040
  • his will to heal you. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh! Shiny,
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:42.060
  • shiny, shiny, shiny, shiny. Shew, shew, shew, shew!" Gone.
  • 00:13:42.070 --> 00:13:45.280
  • "Oh, it's not God's will to heal me. I'll just bear up." No,
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:51.180
  • you're going to die. His Word is His will and "by His stripes ye
  • 00:13:51.190 --> 00:13:57.240
  • were healed." You can't trust the stuff you see. You can't
  • 00:13:57.250 --> 00:14:01.220
  • trust the stuff that you--that comes out of this realm. Hey,
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:07.000
  • the devil is a spirit. Demons are spirits. Principalities,
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:12.060
  • powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, they're in the
  • 00:14:12.070 --> 00:14:15.050
  • spirit realm, and they'll mimic--they'll mimic God if they
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:20.050
  • can. And religious people will fall for it, particularly people
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:25.220
  • that start pushing God. "I need to see something, Lord. I need
  • 00:14:25.230 --> 00:14:29.120
  • to get healed of this cancer, and I just can't seem to get any
  • 00:14:29.130 --> 00:14:34.170
  • faith." "Well, you're looking in the wrong place." "Well, what do
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:37.180
  • you mean, Brother Copeland? I've been--I pray everyday. 'Oh God
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:40.210
  • give me faith.'" "Are you born again?" "Oh yeah." "Did He have
  • 00:14:40.220 --> 00:14:43.150
  • to give you faith to get saved?" "Uh, no." "When someone gave the
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:54.170
  • invitation, did you go up and say, 'Oh, God help me. Give me
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:58.080
  • the faith to get this, if you don't--if I don't, I'm going to
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:15:00.260
  • hell.'?" Of course not. Why? "Well, Brother Copeland, I mean,
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:06.150
  • it's right there in the Bible, it says, 'whosoever believes on
  • 00:15:06.160 --> 00:15:09.180
  • him, shall not perish but have everlasting life.'" Well, the
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:12.010
  • same Bible said, "whosoever say unto that mountain, Be removed,
  • 00:15:12.020 --> 00:15:14.230
  • and be cast into the sea; not doubt in his heart," same
  • 00:15:14.240 --> 00:15:17.280
  • whosoever. Amen. Are you seeing it? No. "Faith cometh by
  • 00:15:17.290 --> 00:15:23.270
  • hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." Faith cometh by
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:27.050
  • hearing, and hearing, and hearing, and hearing, and
  • 00:15:27.060 --> 00:15:30.140
  • hearing, and praising, and hearing, and saying it, and
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:35.140
  • thinking it, and meditating on it, and listening to it on the
  • 00:15:35.150 --> 00:15:38.270
  • way to work, and listening to it on the way home, and walking in
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:42.130
  • love with all your spirit soul and body, and walking by faith
  • 00:15:42.140 --> 00:15:46.290
  • and not feelings, and you just stand up against it. "I'm not
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:51.040
  • moved by what I feel, and I'm not moved by what I see." "Yes,
  • 00:15:51.050 --> 00:15:57.020
  • I am too!" Well, just confess the thing. "Jesus help me. Help
  • 00:15:57.030 --> 00:16:01.160
  • me with this. I'm--I'm determined not to be moved." I
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:04.290
  • mean, He'll come right up in there. The Spirit of God will
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:07.260
  • come right up in there with you, and He'll say, "Okay little,
  • 00:16:07.270 --> 00:16:11.280
  • sister, I've got this!" Amen. But, see, you've got to keep
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:16.040
  • listening to it. You can't lay there and watch some stupid
  • 00:16:16.050 --> 00:16:18.100
  • television series while you're in the hospital. Quit that. No,
  • 00:16:18.110 --> 00:16:23.170
  • no, don't do that. You get the Word of God. You can get
  • 00:16:23.180 --> 00:16:26.080
  • somebody to put Scripture on there. Put--I mean, hey,
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:31.120
  • you--where you're listening to the--listening to Bible, you're
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:34.280
  • listening to somebody reading Scripture, reading Scripture,
  • 00:16:34.290 --> 00:16:38.120
  • feeding your spirit, feeding your spirit. Years ago, Brother
  • 00:16:38.130 --> 00:16:42.080
  • Savelle and I were in a--in a meeting and a woman brought
  • 00:16:42.090 --> 00:16:47.200
  • her--her husband was in a coma, and he was having hard seizures
  • 00:16:47.210 --> 00:16:53.180
  • just every few minutes. Every five or six minutes, he'd have a
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:58.250
  • seizure and--through an injury of some kind. I don't remember
  • 00:16:58.260 --> 00:17:05.110
  • what the bottom of it was. And Jerry was on one side of
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:10.070
  • this--this gurney, and I was on the other side of it, and she
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:13.080
  • was standing near the head of it. And we laid hands on him and
  • 00:17:13.090 --> 00:17:16.130
  • prayed the prayer of faith over him. And he still just--I mean,
  • 00:17:16.140 --> 00:17:20.110
  • you couldn't tell there was any difference. And I heard the Lord
  • 00:17:20.120 --> 00:17:23.270
  • say this, and I turned to her and I said, "Now, get--" Back
  • 00:17:23.280 --> 00:17:31.100
  • there then, you know, we didn't have cell phones and all that,
  • 00:17:31.110 --> 00:17:34.190
  • but we had the Bible on tape. And--and I said to her, I said,
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:39.130
  • "Now, we're going to give you a set of New Testament tapes. And
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:42.220
  • you keep those--you read to him. You read Scripture, read healing
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:46.290
  • verses to him. Read--read the New Testament to him. And then
  • 00:17:47.000 --> 00:17:50.220
  • when you're tired, and--and you go into the other room or
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:54.060
  • something, turn the tape on so the Word is going into his ears
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:56.220
  • 24 hours a day. Son-- "My son, attend to my word; incline thine
  • 00:17:56.230 --> 00:18:02.140
  • ear unto my sayings. Keep them before--don't let me them depart
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:06.070
  • for your eyes; keep them in the mist of your heart. For they are
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:08.240
  • life to those that find them, and health--" or the Hebrew word
  • 00:18:08.250 --> 00:18:11.280
  • is "medicine" "--to all their flesh." And I said, "You
  • 00:18:11.290 --> 00:18:14.160
  • just--you play that 24 hours a day." She said, "I'll do it,
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:17.120
  • Brother Copeland." Well, she left, and he's still doing that.
  • 00:18:17.130 --> 00:18:20.000
  • But then--and she--and they did this for, oh, weeks, and the
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:26.230
  • seizures quit. He's still just laying there in that coma, but
  • 00:18:26.240 --> 00:18:36.030
  • he's peaceful now. Ha-ha. One day, one of her friends that
  • 00:18:36.040 --> 00:18:43.180
  • helped her read to him and so forth, and--came over, and she
  • 00:18:43.190 --> 00:18:49.070
  • went in--she went into the other part of the house for some
  • 00:18:49.080 --> 00:18:53.150
  • reason, and--but she said, "Here, take up right there where
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:56.180
  • I was, and read this to him. It's just Scripture, New
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:19:01.050
  • Testament." So she sat down then, and she just started
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:03.150
  • reading. "But Brother Copeland, they can't hear." Oh, listen,
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:06.260
  • you can too. I've heard testimony after testimony after
  • 00:19:06.270 --> 00:19:10.270
  • testimony of people that were in comas, and they said, "We could
  • 00:19:10.280 --> 00:19:14.140
  • hear every word you were saying. I just couldn't get it out."
  • 00:19:14.150 --> 00:19:17.100
  • Why? The spirit doesn't sleep. The spirit man's hearing it.
  • 00:19:17.110 --> 00:19:20.120
  • It's something wrong with the motor mechanism of your brain
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:24.120
  • and that kind of thing. But they can hear every word that's going
  • 00:19:24.130 --> 00:19:27.030
  • on in there. Don't--don't talk junk and death around somebody
  • 00:19:27.040 --> 00:19:29.240
  • you think is in a coma and can't hear you. Speak life. Anyway,
  • 00:19:29.250 --> 00:19:35.090
  • she was sitting there reading to him. All of a sudden, he sat
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:40.260
  • straight up in bed and said, "Nobody knows the trouble I've
  • 00:19:40.270 --> 00:19:44.020
  • seen!" (Laughs) And she liked to fell out of her chair, man, and,
  • 00:19:44.030 --> 00:19:47.260
  • you know, it startled her. "Nobody knows the trouble I've
  • 00:19:47.270 --> 00:19:51.000
  • seen!" (Laughs) Hallelujah. But you see, it was the Word. The
  • 00:19:51.010 --> 00:19:54.230
  • Word penetrated. The Word--the Word--the Word will divide
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:20:01.110
  • asunder the soul and the spirit, and it'll begin to work inside
  • 00:20:01.120 --> 00:20:06.010
  • the spirit man. And as it strengthens and strengthens and
  • 00:20:06.020 --> 00:20:11.070
  • strengthens and strengthens and strengthens, it'll eventually
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:13.200
  • come out of there. Amen. I'm talking to you about the
