  • I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:12.040 --> 00:00:20.120
  • KENNETH: Hello, everybody, we're Kenneth
  • 00:00:23.030 --> 00:00:25.050
  • and Gloria Copeland. It's a beautiful day here in Southwest
  • 00:00:25.060 --> 00:00:27.190
  • Arkansas, and we are ... it's a little chilly. You'll notice
  • 00:00:27.200 --> 00:00:31.020
  • Gloria's got her coat on. We're taping in this in April,
  • 00:00:31.030 --> 00:00:33.200
  • but it's wonderful. Glory to God. Father,
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:39.080
  • we thank you for the word today. We thank you that we have no
  • 00:00:39.090 --> 00:00:42.220
  • care. GLORIA: That's right. KENNETH: We've rolled all of our
  • 00:00:42.230 --> 00:00:45.290
  • cares, our worries, concerns, anxieties over on you,
  • 00:00:46.000 --> 00:00:50.170
  • once and for all. GLORIA: Thank you Lord. KENNETH: In Jesus'
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:54.160
  • name, amen. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: Now,
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:57.010
  • Gloria and I, we came up here one weekend,
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:01:03.020
  • and we just got out Bibles and our concordances,
  • 00:01:03.030 --> 00:01:08.030
  • and our concordance and everything,
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:11.180
  • and we just pilled up in the middle of the bed in there. We
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:15.120
  • looked up the scriptures about children. We looked,
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:18.050
  • "It shall be the peace of our children." GLORIA: Amen.
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:21.000
  • KENNETH: Isaiah 54. And we rolled all of the care of our
  • 00:01:21.010 --> 00:01:23.280
  • children on the Lord. Now, one of our main cares was the fact
  • 00:01:23.290 --> 00:01:31.270
  • that we didn't want them in public school because of the
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:35.210
  • environment they're in, all of that. I know you subject into
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:39.260
  • that. So we couldn't figure ... I said,
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:43.100
  • well Gloria, I've seen this too often,
  • 00:01:43.110 --> 00:01:45.290
  • because I'm telling you if Satan can't get to you any other way,
  • 00:01:46.000 --> 00:01:52.020
  • boy he'll go after your children. Anyway,
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:54.290
  • we cast all of that care over on him. Well,
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:59.110
  • a young woman by the name of Susan Ethridge,
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:04.180
  • she was a grade school teacher. She had ... and her family were
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:13.130
  • already partners of ours, and we knew her family quite well. She
  • 00:02:13.140 --> 00:02:19.020
  • had married a young Air Force officer and just hadn't been
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:24.200
  • married any length of time, and he was killed. She came to us
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:32.090
  • ... Now listen to this. We're praying about ... she said how
  • 00:02:32.100 --> 00:02:35.050
  • about if I travel with you guys and teach John and Kellie? Just
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:47.060
  • absolutely a perfect match. She was so good with the two of
  • 00:02:47.070 --> 00:02:55.050
  • them. Well, but that takes care of that care. Now we were up
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:03:01.130
  • here then a number of years later. John was in his teens.
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:06.100
  • I'll tell you what, John ... if it had run,
  • 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:15.140
  • John would wreck it, turn it over,
  • 00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:17.030
  • tumble it. Gloria had rolled all the care over on the Lord over
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:20.240
  • him, but she went to him praying in the spirit. You don't ... no,
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:27.200
  • no, no. The care, we'd taken care of that once and for all.
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:31.230
  • So then you had to deal with it mentally. You had to deal with
  • 00:03:31.240 --> 00:03:35.030
  • the worry and the stress and all of that. Here again,
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:39.190
  • she just said, Lord, no I'm not going to touch the care of it,
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:42.130
  • in the name of Jesus. GLORIA: Care and faith don't work
  • 00:03:42.140 --> 00:03:45.060
  • together. KENNETH: No, they can't because care is worry and
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:48.180
  • anxiety. GLORIA: That's right. KENNETH: And torment,
  • 00:03:48.190 --> 00:03:50.250
  • the scripture says. We'll see that in the scripture. GLORIA:
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:52.280
  • That's right. KENNETH: We were up here and over a weekend,
  • 00:03:52.290 --> 00:04:00.060
  • and he was out with his good friend,
  • 00:04:00.070 --> 00:04:02.280
  • and they had a dune buggy kind of a thing. I have to admit,
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:09.020
  • it was pretty cool. Come on. They were out running the hills
  • 00:04:09.030 --> 00:04:14.120
  • and stuff in that thing. Now remember now,
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:20.040
  • what I started to tell you. The word of the Lord came to Gloria
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:26.070
  • and He said, "My tender mercy watches over John." GLORIA: My
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:31.110
  • mercy watches over John. KENNETH: So she just laid hold
  • 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:34.240
  • of that, His mercy watches over John,
  • 00:04:34.250 --> 00:04:37.030
  • watches over him. Glory to God. He came in that night,
  • 00:04:37.040 --> 00:04:41.180
  • and he came in there and just sat down on the edge of the bed.
  • 00:04:41.190 --> 00:04:46.150
  • He was visibly shaken. He said, you know ... he said,
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:53.290
  • I don't remember just exactly how it happened,
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:58.110
  • but that dune buggy tumbled and rolled. He said,
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:05:07.250
  • somewhere in the middle of that, he said,
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:16.140
  • I'm sitting on a little hill there a few feet away looking at
  • 00:05:16.150 --> 00:05:21.290
  • that thing as it finally hit. Now the other boy was banged up
  • 00:05:22.000 --> 00:05:28.280
  • a little bit, but he wasn't hurt all that bad. But see what ...
  • 00:05:28.290 --> 00:05:33.120
  • now oh God, oh God, I'm worried about John,
  • 00:05:33.130 --> 00:05:38.100
  • he's going to get killed in that stuff. Well,
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:40.220
  • that's what would happen. But by rolling all that care,
  • 00:05:40.230 --> 00:05:44.180
  • and His mercy watches over him, he just picked him out and set
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:47.110
  • him out and set him up there so nothing could happen to him.
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:49.210
  • GLORIA: Dump fear and take faith,
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:51.040
  • is what you gotta do. KENNETH: Yeah man. Dump fear and take
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:53.070
  • faith. Praise God. Now that's the reason it is so important to
  • 00:05:53.080 --> 00:05:57.110
  • cast the holy care over on this thing. Now I was preaching in
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:06:02.230
  • Beaumont, Texas at Dan Sutton's little church down there. Oh
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:06.150
  • man, gonna be there three weeks. There was the Asian flu epidemic
  • 00:06:06.160 --> 00:06:14.270
  • had hit and nobody coming. The first morning,
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:21.000
  • oh man, there wasn't but two people. I just didn't know what
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:30.210
  • to do, so before the night service I was in there on the
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:36.070
  • floor going what am I going to do. I don't have the money. If I
  • 00:06:36.080 --> 00:06:40.070
  • ran a full page ad in the Beaumont paper,
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:43.030
  • wasn't different that day. Nobody knows who I am. What am I
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:46.190
  • going to do? I was just learning it. We just learned it from
  • 00:06:46.200 --> 00:06:50.260
  • Brother Hagen. I was just down on my knees in there and it just
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:56.220
  • came up on the inside, came up and just kept coming up,
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:59.100
  • just kept coming up. You better get rid of that care. You better
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:03.020
  • get rid of that care. Oh yeah. Then I went over there the
  • 00:07:03.030 --> 00:07:07.070
  • scripture that we've been reading,
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.270
  • 1 Peter 5. I read down one line and I said,
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:14.020
  • oh Jesus, this meeting is my care. Now I'm rolling all,
  • 00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:19.150
  • I'm casting all of this care over on you sir,
  • 00:07:19.160 --> 00:07:25.020
  • and I'm not going to touch it anymore. This is your business.
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:30.090
  • You're the one that sent me here,
  • 00:07:30.100 --> 00:07:31.290
  • and I'm not touching that care in my thought. GLORIA: Care is
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:36.190
  • just another word for fear. KENNETH: Yeah,
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:39.060
  • it is. GLORIA: It's fear. KENNETH: Anxiety,
  • 00:07:39.070 --> 00:07:40.250
  • fear. So I went over. I search that night,
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:44.090
  • we had the pastor and his wife. I don't remember now just a
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:53.110
  • handful of people. Well, what do you do? You preach it like
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:57.250
  • there's a thousand there because you don't have any care. You
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:08:01.020
  • don't give them a little sermon because there ain't nobody
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:03.080
  • there. That's the way you get thousands is preach like there's
  • 00:08:03.090 --> 00:08:06.240
  • a thousand there. GLORIA: That's right. KENNETH: So I rolled all
  • 00:08:06.250 --> 00:08:08.290
  • the care. There was a guy who come up to me. Oh Lord,
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:16.180
  • thank you Jesus. Copeland, he said,
  • 00:08:16.190 --> 00:08:20.020
  • I don't know what you come here for. He said the goodens have
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:24.140
  • been here, the biggins has been here and couldn't have revival,
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:27.240
  • and I know you can't. GLORIA: That was an encouraging word.
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:30.280
  • KENNETH: Oh, it gives you that warm fuzzy feeling. I just
  • 00:08:30.290 --> 00:08:33.170
  • laughed. I said, are you kidding me? We're having a landslide
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:36.210
  • brother. See, I'm talking about what I see coming,
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:40.000
  • not what ... I'm not moved by what I see in the natural. Man,
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:44.120
  • I don't have the care. He went out and told somebody. He said,
  • 00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:48.110
  • that poor boy don't know the difference between a landslide
  • 00:08:48.120 --> 00:08:51.250
  • and a flaw. But see, he's looking in the natural. He's
  • 00:08:51.260 --> 00:08:56.150
  • carnal minded. I'm looking through that care. Gloria,
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:09:00.150
  • at the end of the first five days,
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:06.090
  • that little building was crammed full and people were standing
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:10.090
  • outside listening through the windows. GLORIA: Praise God.
  • 00:09:10.100 --> 00:09:13.270
  • KENNETH: Amen. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: So you get rid of that
  • 00:09:13.280 --> 00:09:17.270
  • care and give it to Jesus. Now let me demonstrate this again
  • 00:09:17.280 --> 00:09:19.290
  • because I want to ... you have to realize how this works. If I
  • 00:09:20.000 --> 00:09:24.170
  • give Gloria my pen- GLORIA: Thank you. KENNETH: ... eager to
  • 00:09:24.180 --> 00:09:31.190
  • take it. She's my pen taker. See,
  • 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:36.230
  • you come up and say Brother Copeland I need to borrow your
  • 00:09:36.240 --> 00:09:41.070
  • red pencil. I would have to say no,
  • 00:09:41.080 --> 00:09:45.200
  • Gloria has it. I didn't say I didn't have one. I said Gloria
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:51.100
  • has it. Well, what about that daughter. Well,
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:59.080
  • that's not my care. No, Jesus has that. Now,
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:02.220
  • notice she gave it right back. Why? It's mine. You get down,
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:09.000
  • oh God, I don't know what I want to do with that boy. Well
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:12.280
  • there's nothing he can do about it because it's your care,
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:15.110
  • it's your problem. Let me give you another scripture. The
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:20.120
  • scripture says to rest in Him. Faith always rests. Faith
  • 00:10:20.130 --> 00:10:28.190
  • doesn't worry. GLORIA: Throw your care over on the Lord.
  • 00:10:28.200 --> 00:10:33.180
  • KENNETH: God has rested. When we work,
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:38.200
  • He rests. When we rest, He works. We rest in Him. How?
  • 00:10:38.210 --> 00:10:48.170
  • Casting all the care on Him. We got the scriptures to stand on.
  • 00:10:48.180 --> 00:10:51.060
  • GLORIA: When we rest in faith. KENNETH: When we rest in faith,
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.230
  • then He can work. Now let me tell you something else. Thank
  • 00:10:53.240 --> 00:10:57.110
  • you Lord, I'll do that right now. Let's go over here to
  • 00:10:57.120 --> 00:11:04.040
  • Matthew, the 18th chapter. I want to show you a principle
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:09.130
  • here that you don't ever want to forget. Don't ever forget this.
  • 00:11:09.140 --> 00:11:15.000
  • In the 18th chapter of Matthew, 18th verse. "Verily I say unto
  • 00:11:15.010 --> 00:11:26.270
  • you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth,
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:31.170
  • shall be bound in heaven." Heaven cannot ... it isn't that
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:40.130
  • they won't. They cannot do anything in the earth first.
  • 00:11:40.140 --> 00:11:48.020
  • When God created the earth, He turned it over to his man Adam.
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:56.110
  • He created the earth and the fullness therein for men,
  • 00:11:56.120 --> 00:12:05.280
  • for human beings. Put the authority here. Adam sold Him
  • 00:12:05.290 --> 00:12:10.190
  • out, gave it to the devil. The devil became the god of this
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:16.140
  • world. Adam was literally the god of this world,
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:19.210
  • and he sold it out to Satan. Well God can't undo that. It
  • 00:12:19.220 --> 00:12:23.180
  • took Him years and centuries, and centuries,
  • 00:12:23.190 --> 00:12:27.030
  • and centuries. It had to be so exact and so absolute perfect
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:30.260
  • all down through the years to get Jesus in here so He could
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:35.160
  • undo it. It took a man to go to the cross. GLORIA: That's right.
  • 00:12:35.170 --> 00:12:40.110
  • KENNETH: It took a man to do it. Now notice this and get it.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:42.210
  • Whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:51.250
  • Whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
  • 00:12:51.260 --> 00:12:56.180
  • The binding and the loosing have to take place first on the
  • 00:12:56.190 --> 00:12:59.250
  • earth, and then Jesus is standing behind that thing. He
  • 00:12:59.260 --> 00:13:06.130
  • is, in Hebrews 3:1, consider the apostle. I'm going to read that.
  • 00:13:06.140 --> 00:13:12.270
  • I can quote it to you, but I want you to put your eyes on it.
  • 00:13:12.280 --> 00:13:15.130
  • Hebrews chapter three. "Wherefore Holy brethren,
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:24.210
  • partakers of the heavenly calling,
  • 00:13:24.220 --> 00:13:28.010
  • consider the apostle, the one God sent,
  • 00:13:28.020 --> 00:13:31.100
  • and high priest of our profession,
  • 00:13:31.110 --> 00:13:36.130
  • the same word translated confession. "Christ Jesus,
  • 00:13:36.140 --> 00:13:40.010
  • who was faithful to him that appointed him as also Moses was
  • 00:13:40.020 --> 00:13:45.110
  • faithful in his house." Now he sent Jesus,
  • 00:13:45.120 --> 00:13:48.050
  • he sent the apostle, high priest of our profession,
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:57.020
  • Christ the anointed one. Jesus is now at the right hand of the
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:14:03.290
  • father, anointed of God, as high priest over what we do and say
  • 00:14:04.000 --> 00:14:11.100
  • of His word in the earth. When we put His word in our mouth and
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:18.230
  • are obedient to it, and we stand on it in the name of Jesus,
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:24.020
  • He's right there by his angelic forces to see to it that it's
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:29.000
  • carried out, because now if you go back over there to the 18
  • 00:14:29.010 --> 00:14:32.100
  • chapter, He said, "Where two or three are gathered together in
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:35.050
  • my name, there am I in the midst of them." To do what? Carry out
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:38.000
  • the agreement. So now, let's go to our golden text,
  • 00:14:38.010 --> 00:14:43.230
  • which is 1 Peter 5. This sheds a whole new light on this. Verse
  • 00:14:43.240 --> 00:14:49.150
  • five, "Likewise, you younger, submit yourselves under the
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:54.000
  • elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another." Yes
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:58.200
  • sir, we'll do it. And be clothed with humility. Yes sir,
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:15:01.250
  • we'll do it. "For God resists the proud and gives grace to the
  • 00:15:01.260 --> 00:15:05.260
  • humble. Humble yourself therefore under the mighty hand
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:08.240
  • of God." How do we do that Jesus? "That He may exalt you in
  • 00:15:08.250 --> 00:15:12.240
  • due time, casting all your care." All right. "Humble
  • 00:15:12.250 --> 00:15:16.210
  • yourselves ..." this is the amplified translation,
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:22.150
  • "Under the mighty hand of God. Set aside self righteous pride."
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:28.010
  • Well if you can take half of this,
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:30.170
  • I'll carry the rest of it. "So that He may exalt you to a place
  • 00:15:30.180 --> 00:15:35.280
  • of honor in His service at the appropriate time,
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:39.000
  • casting all of your care, all your anxieties,
  • 00:15:39.010 --> 00:15:42.200
  • all your worries, all your concerns,
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:46.070
  • once and for all on Him, for He cares about you with deepest
  • 00:15:46.080 --> 00:15:51.270
  • affection and watches over you very,
  • 00:15:51.280 --> 00:15:54.270
  • very carefully." GLORIA: Praise God. KENNETH: Now,
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:59.100
  • let's turn to the book of Ephesians chapter four.
  • 00:15:59.110 --> 00:16:03.040
  • Ephesians 4, and we will look at the 24th verse. Now he's talking
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:13.060
  • Ephesians 4, and we will look at the 24th verse. Now he's talking
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:21.290
  • to born again, holy ghost, baptized,
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:23.240
  • tongue talking believers. We know that. The scripture says
  • 00:16:23.250 --> 00:16:29.160
  • so. That was the norm them. That didn't get separated until our
  • 00:16:29.170 --> 00:16:34.130
  • time. Now, verse 24, "Put on the new man,
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:44.040
  • the new creature, after God is created in righteousness and
  • 00:16:44.050 --> 00:16:49.280
  • true holiness." The new creature,
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:52.290
  • that's you. You have been born again. You renew your mind and
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:57.100
  • do something with your body. These cares and so forth,
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:17:02.050
  • Gloria, they're of the mind. That's where the strongholds
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:05.190
  • are, they're in the mind, casting down imagination.
  • 00:17:05.200 --> 00:17:07.200
  • GLORIA: Care is just another way to say fear. KENNETH: Yeah.
  • 00:17:07.210 --> 00:17:10.170
  • "Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:17.060
  • neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be ye angry and sin
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:23.070
  • not. Let not the sun go down upon your wrath,
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:25.240
  • neither give place to the devil." Now,
  • 00:17:25.250 --> 00:17:29.210
  • I was meditating on that sometime ago,
  • 00:17:29.220 --> 00:17:36.090
  • and giving place to the devil really triggered my thinking.
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:43.100
  • Let not the sun go down on your wrath. I heard Brother Hagen say
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:49.090
  • what I said some time ago. I'm talking about years ago. Brother
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:52.050
  • Hagen promised God that he would never worry again. Now you're
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:18:00.200
  • going to get some outstanding opportunities,
  • 00:18:00.210 --> 00:18:02.290
  • but this is what we're talking about. He just promised him that
  • 00:18:03.000 --> 00:18:09.000
  • he would never do it again. So I made the same decision. I'm not
  • 00:18:09.010 --> 00:18:14.160
  • going to let the sun go down on a care. In a time,
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:17.050
  • don't you ever lay your head on that pillow. You know what
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:23.270
  • Gloria, before we started this broadcast,
  • 00:18:23.280 --> 00:18:27.100
  • it came across my heart that somebody that's had epileptic
  • 00:18:27.110 --> 00:18:34.090
  • seizures and was delivered from them,
  • 00:18:34.100 --> 00:18:37.200
  • but they came back. I don't know you,
  • 00:18:37.210 --> 00:18:40.180
  • but I can tell you what happened. Sometime or another
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:44.170
  • ... I mean totally free, totally delivered. But sometime or
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:47.210
  • other, you went to bed afraid you're going to have another
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:50.160
  • one. Now you go to be afraid- GLORIA: Don't do it. KENNETH:
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:53.160
  • ... and you just give the devil an opportunity right then. You
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:57.290
  • give it to him right then to put you down. Don't allow him to
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:19:03.250
  • have it, in Jesus' name. You say no,
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:07.250
  • no. I cast that care. I'm delivered of that,
  • 00:19:07.260 --> 00:19:10.160
  • and you're not putting that on my Satan. You are not putting
  • 00:19:10.170 --> 00:19:13.190
  • that on me, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:18.100
  • Now get. Just lay down there and say,
  • 00:19:18.110 --> 00:19:21.290
  • He gives his beloved sleep and I'm going to sleep. Praise God.
  • 00:19:22.000 --> 00:19:26.170
  • Now you may have to do that night after night,
  • 00:19:26.180 --> 00:19:28.190
  • after night for a while, roll all of the care of it over on
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:30.160
  • the Lord, and it will go away. The care of it will bring it on.
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:34.280
  • It'll bring it into your life. GLORIA: Opens a door. It opens-
  • 00:19:34.290 --> 00:19:39.090
  • KENNETH: Yeah it does, absolutely. Now then,
  • 00:19:39.100 --> 00:19:41.130
  • how much time we got? So the whole problem is we wrestle not
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:51.150
  • how much time we got? So the whole problem is we wrestle not
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:56.250
  • with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers,
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:20:01.120
  • and rulers of the darkness of this world,
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:05.050
  • and wicked spirits in the heavenlies. There's the problem.
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:10.190
  • Now the next step is put on the whole armor of God,
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:16.240
  • and you notice where the helmet of salvation is,
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:21.020
  • over the mind. GLORIA: Yeah. KENNETH: You renew the mind to
  • 00:20:21.030 --> 00:20:24.170
  • the word. GLORIA: It's also ears. KENNETH: Huh? GLORIA: Your
  • 00:20:24.180 --> 00:20:27.240
  • ears. KENNETH: Oh yeah. GLORIA: That's where you hear bad things
  • 00:20:27.250 --> 00:20:32.230
  • and fear things that people talk about,
  • 00:20:32.240 --> 00:20:35.020
  • threatening things. KENNETH: Oh yeah. If you spend all your time
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:41.000
  • listening to the news and all that,
  • 00:20:41.010 --> 00:20:42.280
  • you're going to get mad at the politicians and you get da da
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:46.190
  • da, and the only thing you ever talk about. It gets down in
  • 00:20:46.200 --> 00:20:50.130
  • there. So the truth of it is the Word. Find scriptures that
  • 00:20:50.140 --> 00:20:55.120
  • cover. Let the sword, the sword, the word,
  • 00:20:55.130 --> 00:21:04.200
  • the sword, sharper than any two edged sword,
  • 00:21:04.210 --> 00:21:08.100
  • dividing asunder. Spirit, soul, body,
  • 00:21:08.110 --> 00:21:13.020
  • joints, and marrow. GLORIA: You know,
  • 00:21:13.030 --> 00:21:15.070
  • when I have a thought like that, a fear thought,
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:17.280
  • or something comes to me, I like to say out loud I don't believe
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:20.110
  • that. KENNETH: I don't believe that. GLORIA: I don't believe
  • 00:21:20.120 --> 00:21:23.160
  • that. That's just the devil trying to sell you something so
  • 00:21:23.170 --> 00:21:26.000
  • he can get in. KENNETH: It's a lie against the truth. GLORIA:
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:29.000
  • He has to have a door to get in. Yeah,
  • 00:21:29.010 --> 00:21:30.200
  • it's a lie against the truth. That's what it is. KENNETH: Go
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:33.090
  • ahead and talk about that Gloria. I know you've had a lot
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:35.250
  • of experience in that way. GLORIA: Well,
  • 00:21:35.260 --> 00:21:37.230
  • that's all I've got to say about it,
  • 00:21:37.240 --> 00:21:39.160
  • but you've just got 30 seconds to close up. KENNETH: Okay. The
  • 00:21:39.170 --> 00:21:44.240
  • whole bottom line is go to the word. Get the promises and facts
  • 00:21:44.250 --> 00:21:51.250
  • that cover your situation. You stand on them,
  • 00:21:51.260 --> 00:21:55.140
  • you write them down, you put them on your refrigerator door,
  • 00:21:55.150 --> 00:21:58.230
  • you see to it that you read it every day. GLORIA: Amen.
  • 00:21:58.240 --> 00:22:01.200
  • KENNETH: We're out of time. We'll be back in just a moment.
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:05.190
  • KENNETH: Hello everybody. I want to tell you a little story now.
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:14.210
  • Right after Gloria and I got married,
  • 00:22:14.220 --> 00:22:17.020
  • Gloria's grandfather and grandmother gave us four acres.
  • 00:22:17.030 --> 00:22:20.140
  • I was so thrilled. Oh, I'm a land owner. So I had come to
  • 00:22:20.150 --> 00:22:30.000
  • standing right here in this spot,
  • 00:22:30.010 --> 00:22:31.250
  • and there was just a dry creak bed that came in down there at
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:37.000
  • that end. I was just standing here just thinking praise God. I
  • 00:22:37.010 --> 00:22:42.040
  • heard the Lord say, see that tree right over there? I said
  • 00:22:42.050 --> 00:22:46.040
  • yes sir. He said, if you will put a dam,
  • 00:22:46.050 --> 00:22:51.010
  • a levy from there over to here, you'll have a pond. I told Pop,
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:23:00.100
  • Gloria's granddad, I said Pop, we could dam this off right
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:05.150
  • across there, and it'd be a ... build a pond. He said,
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:10.010
  • Kenneth, I think the county has a water conservation program
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:14.230
  • going on right now, and the county paid for all of it except
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:19.280
  • $600. Are you hearing me? I said,
  • 00:23:19.290 --> 00:23:24.080
  • mm-hmm (affirmative), I got $600. We can do this. When they
  • 00:23:24.090 --> 00:23:29.270
  • dug it all out and they hit springs back in there,
  • 00:23:29.280 --> 00:23:34.180
  • the water just all started coming into the place. Then
  • 00:23:34.190 --> 00:23:39.240
  • later, water was going out underneath the dam,
  • 00:23:39.250 --> 00:23:43.150
  • and it would just leak down. I couldn't figure out what it was,
  • 00:23:43.160 --> 00:23:47.080
  • so I had people come out and check it out. The dozer
  • 00:23:47.090 --> 00:23:51.100
  • operator, the first time around, he was concerned that he was
  • 00:23:51.110 --> 00:23:57.140
  • going to get his bulldozer stuck out there,
  • 00:23:57.150 --> 00:23:59.190
  • so he didn't core those springs out like it should. So a good
  • 00:23:59.200 --> 00:24:03.090
  • friend of mine, Denzel Jacks, I called him. He's a dozer
  • 00:24:03.100 --> 00:24:11.040
  • operator and build ponds and stuff like that. He said,
  • 00:24:11.050 --> 00:24:13.280
  • Kenneth, this is a gravel bottom. He said,
  • 00:24:13.290 --> 00:24:17.110
  • you'd have to dig down beneath that gravel. He said his dozer
  • 00:24:17.120 --> 00:24:22.170
  • wouldn't have stuck. So Denzel dug it out to where it's 20 feet
  • 00:24:22.180 --> 00:24:29.150
  • at the dam. Then they poured the red clay down there two feet
  • 00:24:29.160 --> 00:24:35.270
  • deep, so it was 18 feet. Then they broke up ... I don't
  • 00:24:35.280 --> 00:24:39.050
  • remember now how many bales of hay,
  • 00:24:39.060 --> 00:24:42.050
  • and they got out there, and stomped that hay into that clay.
  • 00:24:42.060 --> 00:24:49.210
  • So it's 18 feet deep here, and then they made little tiers in
  • 00:24:49.220 --> 00:24:54.210
  • it like that so the fish would have,
  • 00:24:54.220 --> 00:24:57.090
  • whoa man. The plan of God ... See God saw this long,
  • 00:24:57.100 --> 00:25:01.190
  • long ago when this was a peach orchard that belonged to
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:08.000
  • Gloria's grandfather. God saw it. He saw this prayer place.
  • 00:25:08.010 --> 00:25:12.250
  • It's a glorious story. It's a Jesus story,
  • 00:25:12.260 --> 00:25:16.080
  • and I'm just so blessed to get to share it with you.
  • 00:25:16.090 --> 00:25:21.050
  • KENNETH: The power of your words package.
  • 00:25:25.020 --> 00:25:29.130
  • You are the prophet of your own life. You
  • 00:25:29.140 --> 00:25:35.040
  • have what you say. You don't have what God says. You have
  • 00:25:35.050 --> 00:25:40.160
  • what you say. You believe it in your heart,
  • 00:25:40.170 --> 00:25:43.120
  • you say it with your mouth. Now, if you believe what the word of
  • 00:25:43.130 --> 00:25:46.180
  • God says and put it in your heart,
  • 00:25:46.190 --> 00:25:48.050
  • then you have what God says. If you let the devil fill your mind
  • 00:25:48.060 --> 00:25:50.200
  • and you say that, then you have what the devil says. Then how
  • 00:25:50.210 --> 00:25:53.130
  • you call it is how it'll be. Stop calling things the way they
  • 00:25:53.140 --> 00:26:00.090
  • are. GLORIA: That's right. KENNETH: Amen,
  • 00:26:00.100 --> 00:26:02.270
  • and start calling things that be not as though they were,
  • 00:26:02.280 --> 00:26:06.010
  • and it changes everything. GLORIA: That's right. KENNETH:
  • 00:26:06.020 --> 00:26:10.080
  • Don't say except what God says about your health,
  • 00:26:10.090 --> 00:26:13.000
  • about your family, about your finances. Hey,
  • 00:26:13.010 --> 00:26:15.150
  • come on, quit saying what the devil said,
  • 00:26:15.160 --> 00:26:19.060
  • quit saying what other people said,
  • 00:26:19.070 --> 00:26:21.030
  • and say what God says about it. It'll help you understand how to
  • 00:26:21.040 --> 00:26:23.260
  • use your authority. We've got authority in the name of Jesus
  • 00:26:23.270 --> 00:26:27.160
  • to change and create our own mind. GLORIA: Thinking about the
  • 00:26:27.170 --> 00:26:30.210
  • scripture. It says if two of you agree as touching anything-
  • 00:26:30.220 --> 00:26:32.260
  • KENNETH: Yeah, we just read that. GLORIA: You could agree.
  • 00:26:32.270 --> 00:26:35.180
  • You and God agree if you say the right thing. KENNETH: Oh that's
  • 00:26:35.190 --> 00:26:38.280
  • good. GLORIA: Isn't that right? KENNETH: That's right.
  • 00:26:38.290 --> 00:26:41.150
  • Absolutely. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: Absolutely. We're
