  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:20.220
  • KENNETH: Hello everybody, we're Kenneth, and
  • 00:00:23.250 --> 00:00:25.210
  • Gloria Copeland. Welcome to the The Believers
  • 00:00:25.220 --> 00:00:27.240
  • Voice of Victory broadcast. Let's have a word of
  • 00:00:27.250 --> 00:00:30.070
  • prayer, and we'll get right into today's Bible lesson. Father,
  • 00:00:30.080 --> 00:00:33.010
  • we do thank you, and we praise you,
  • 00:00:33.020 --> 00:00:35.190
  • and we bless you. Thank you. We open our hearts,
  • 00:00:35.200 --> 00:00:40.280
  • and we open our minds for revelation from heaven.
  • 00:00:40.290 --> 00:00:45.090
  • Revelation of Jesus, revelation of life,
  • 00:00:45.100 --> 00:00:49.040
  • of faith, revelation of heaven, and all of its glory,
  • 00:00:49.050 --> 00:00:54.020
  • but most especially, revelation of this life in the earth,
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:59.090
  • and we thank you for it, and give you praise,
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:02.200
  • and honor in the wonderful name of Jesus. GLORIA: Praise God.
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:05.110
  • KENNETH: Amen. Glory to God, hallelujah. All right. Now then,
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:12.170
  • let's go back where we began Monday. Fear not,
  • 00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:21.290
  • we're talking about Jesus, our care taker. Say it,
  • 00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:32.270
  • he takes my care. GLORIA: He takes my care. KENNETH: I've
  • 00:01:32.280 --> 00:01:36.120
  • rolled it all over on him. GLORIA: I've rolled it all over
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:39.050
  • on him. KENNETH: And I have no care. GLORIA: And I have no
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:42.200
  • care. KENNETH: In Jesus' name. GLORIA: In Jesus' name. KENNETH:
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:46.060
  • Amen. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: Now it's you're in my job then to
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:51.060
  • build the word of God, and renew our mind to his word,
  • 00:01:51.070 --> 00:01:55.270
  • and not be moved by what we see, not be moved by what we hear,
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:02:01.100
  • but only be moved with what we believe,
  • 00:02:01.110 --> 00:02:03.200
  • and we believe the Bible, we believe God's word. Hallelujah.
  • 00:02:03.210 --> 00:02:07.210
  • GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: While we look not at the things which are
  • 00:02:07.220 --> 00:02:10.140
  • seen, but we look at the things which are not seen. Hallelujah.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:16.180
  • See, if you look at the things which are seen,
  • 00:02:16.190 --> 00:02:20.080
  • you'll be full of care, and worry all the time,
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:23.020
  • but if you keep your eye on Jesus,
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:25.140
  • you don't feint in your mind... GLORIA: Things that are not seen
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:27.290
  • are the things that are working in the spirit. KENNETH: Yes,
  • 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:31.120
  • yes, yes, yes, yes. GLORIA: And daring to get to you. KENNETH:
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:33.110
  • And at the same time, the things that are not seen are in the
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:38.070
  • spirit working for you. GLORIA: Yes,
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:41.160
  • that's true. KENNETH: So, we look not at this natural world.
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:43.150
  • Amen. That's good, Gloria. GLORIA: Good. KENNETH: Now I
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:48.020
  • said this on Monday, I wanna say it you again. 72 times in the
  • 00:02:48.030 --> 00:02:56.220
  • first covenant the word 'Fear not' occurs. Now,
  • 00:02:56.230 --> 00:03:03.220
  • it's in a lot of different manifestation,
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:06.160
  • and that's a commandment, fear not. 23 times in the New
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:14.250
  • Testament, that's 95 times the Bible said,
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:18.100
  • 'Stop the fear.' Gloria, you remember in Luke eight when
  • 00:03:18.110 --> 00:03:23.000
  • Jairus was walking right there with Jesus,
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:26.090
  • and the death message came, and said,
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:28.280
  • your little daughter's dead, trouble the master no further?
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:31.260
  • Now, you know, it just says fear not. What he said
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:35.130
  • actually, he just said to him, and I believe very sternly,
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:40.210
  • stop the fear, believe only. She will be made whole. You can say
  • 00:03:40.220 --> 00:03:46.030
  • that about you, me, anybody else,
  • 00:03:46.040 --> 00:03:49.280
  • stop that fear, believe only. How are you going to do that?
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:53.090
  • You're going to have to have scripture for what you're
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:55.230
  • believing for. You're going to have to have verses. For
  • 00:03:55.240 --> 00:03:58.150
  • instance, 'seek ye first the Kingdom of God,
  • 00:03:58.160 --> 00:04:02.270
  • and his righteousness, and all of these things would be added
  • 00:04:02.280 --> 00:04:05.080
  • to you.' Do you realize that he bought that,
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:07.140
  • and paid for that with his own blood to see to it that that's
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:10.230
  • true? That's a blood sworn statement. So,
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:14.180
  • I can take that. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: If I'll obey that,
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:18.200
  • it will take place. GLORIA: Yes. KENNETH: But you have to walk in
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:22.000
  • it, walk in it, cast all the care of that,
  • 00:04:22.010 --> 00:04:25.050
  • nope, nope. I seek first the kingdom. I seek first the word,
  • 00:04:25.060 --> 00:04:27.250
  • I seek first Jesus. Now, roll all the care that the devil
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:34.100
  • comes on. No, no, no, no, nope. No. I'm not gonna let that
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:37.080
  • affect me. You're getting calls from bill collector,
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:39.110
  • just 'Go with God, I seek first the Kingdom',
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:43.120
  • but on the inside, boy it just almost make you fighting man,
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:46.090
  • but you just put a laugh in, you just put a laugh on. Well,
  • 00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:50.230
  • ain't nothing funny. Yeah, there is,
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:52.120
  • go look in the mirror. GLORIA: And know that care has to be on
  • 00:04:52.130 --> 00:04:54.090
  • belief. KENNETH: Yes, yes. GLORIA: If you didn't have any
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:58.100
  • on belief, you wouldn't have any care. KENNETH: Oh,
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:05:00.060
  • that's that strong, isn't it? GLORIA: It is,
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:01.220
  • it is. That's a good way to watch for it. KENNETH: So,
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:04.070
  • yeah, thank you Lord. You take the responsibility for the
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:08.260
  • unbelief. Faith filled words dominate the laws of sin,
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:14.160
  • and men. GLORIA: That's right. KENNETH: Glory to God. GLORIA:
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:17.080
  • Praise God. KENNETH: Let's go over there now. GLORIA: Okay.
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:20.030
  • KENNETH: To first Peter, that's our golden text. Verse Five:
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:21.270
  • Likewise you younger, submit yourselves under the elder. All
  • 00:05:21.280 --> 00:05:27.160
  • of you be subject one to another. Be clothed with
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:32.030
  • humility, for God resisteth the proud,
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:35.190
  • giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore,
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:39.260
  • under the mighty hand of God, and here's the way you do it.
  • 00:05:39.270 --> 00:05:43.110
  • That he may exalt you in due time casting. To cast out. In
  • 00:05:43.120 --> 00:05:53.200
  • the Old Testament, the first testament,
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:57.190
  • first covenant, it uses the word roll. Roll over on God. GLORIA:
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:06:06.010
  • Casting sounds stronger when you think about it. KENNETH: But
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:09.190
  • you're getting rid of it. You're casting it out,
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:13.170
  • and away from you. For he cares for you. Be sober,
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:18.060
  • be vigilant, because your adversary the devil is a roaring
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:22.250
  • lion walketh about seeking whom he may devour. While I'm a whom
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:28.010
  • he can't devour. Let me finish this,
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:32.200
  • and then the Lord has impressed me to read something. Whom
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:36.200
  • resists steadfastly in the faith,
  • 00:06:36.210 --> 00:06:38.270
  • knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in
  • 00:06:38.280 --> 00:06:42.130
  • your brethren that are in the world,
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:44.150
  • but the god of all grace who has called us unto his eternal glory
  • 00:06:44.160 --> 00:06:49.270
  • by Christ Jesus. After you have resisted suffered,
  • 00:06:49.280 --> 00:06:54.020
  • I mean, been shoved around, we resist everything Jesus bore for
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:07:00.050
  • us on that cross. That's a whole lot harder than just,
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:04.070
  • 'Well, I'm just suffering this sickness.' No,
  • 00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:10.110
  • no, get up from there. Get up from there. Just get up. By his
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:14.210
  • stripes, you were healed. It's not a promise,
  • 00:07:14.220 --> 00:07:18.050
  • it's a Bible fact. Get up from there. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH:
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:21.060
  • Amen. But the god of all grace should call us unto his eternal
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:26.140
  • glory by Christ Jesus after you have suffered,
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:29.160
  • resisted, stood, and battled this thing a while,
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:32.260
  • make you perfect, and entire, entire,
  • 00:07:32.270 --> 00:07:35.120
  • entire perfect, developed, establish,
  • 00:07:35.130 --> 00:07:38.210
  • strengthen, and settle you. It'll settle you down when
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:48.000
  • nobody else can figure out how come you're not just a basket
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:50.180
  • case. GLORIA: Yeah. KENNETH: To him be the glory,
  • 00:07:50.190 --> 00:07:54.120
  • and dominion forever. Glory to God. Now when you do this,
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:58.010
  • you step into his dominion. You give him the problem,
  • 00:07:58.020 --> 00:08:02.270
  • and he dominates it, isn't that good? GLORIA: Casting your care.
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:06.220
  • KENNETH: Casting that care. GLORIA: Over on the Lord,
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.250
  • for he cares for you. KENNETH: Then he can dominate it. GLORIA:
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:11.280
  • Yeah, he's got it, you put it in his hand. You quit worrying
  • 00:08:11.290 --> 00:08:16.090
  • about it. KENNETH: We found out yesterday,
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:18.160
  • earth has to act first. Earth has to act. God couldn't take
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:24.270
  • care of John until you, and I rolled all the care of him over
  • 00:08:24.280 --> 00:08:28.050
  • on him, and my goodness, we watched him,
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:32.100
  • and you know, he was out there doing his best to go to hell
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:35.050
  • just like I was when I was a kid,
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:38.160
  • and we watched God just herd him like herding a calf. It was
  • 00:08:38.170 --> 00:08:43.060
  • amazing to watch it take place. He just herded him right on in
  • 00:08:43.070 --> 00:08:48.110
  • there, and he's an amazing man today because of it. Glory to
  • 00:08:48.120 --> 00:08:56.230
  • God. GLORIA: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Hallelujah. Now,
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:08:58.160
  • I want to read this again. I want to read it again,
  • 00:08:58.170 --> 00:09:03.270
  • and again, and again, and again, and again. John 14:27: Jesus
  • 00:09:03.280 --> 00:09:08.190
  • said, "Let not you" is the understood subject sentence
  • 00:09:08.200 --> 00:09:14.070
  • here. "You do something about it." He said,
  • 00:09:14.080 --> 00:09:17.200
  • "In the world, you have tribulation,
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:21.250
  • but I've overcome the world", ain't no use use you
  • 00:09:21.260 --> 00:09:25.270
  • tribulating. I've overcome it. Let not your heart be troubled.
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:33.260
  • The Greek is to be anxious, and distressed,
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:43.280
  • The Greek is to be anxious, and distressed,
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:50.000
  • or depressed. He said, 'Stop that. Don't let that happen.'
  • 00:09:50.010 --> 00:09:53.240
  • Now, you're going to have to go to the word. You can't combat
  • 00:09:53.250 --> 00:09:57.020
  • it. Let me show you something. You can't combat thoughts with
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:10:01.250
  • thoughts, it is impossible. You can't do it. You combat thoughts
  • 00:10:01.260 --> 00:10:07.180
  • with words. The Lord showed me this many years ago,
  • 00:10:07.190 --> 00:10:12.150
  • and you can test it yourself. Now,
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:18.110
  • don't be lazy, and just sit there,
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:21.260
  • and look, and don't do it, do what I tell you to do,
  • 00:10:21.270 --> 00:10:24.100
  • or it doesn't make real sense to you unless you do. Now listen to
  • 00:10:24.110 --> 00:10:27.110
  • this. Silently begin counting now from one,
  • 00:10:27.120 --> 00:10:34.140
  • to 10 starting now. Now out loud,
  • 00:10:34.150 --> 00:10:38.170
  • tell me your name. Now what happened to your counting? It
  • 00:10:38.180 --> 00:10:43.140
  • stopped. Your mind had to stop, and see what your mouth had to
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:50.250
  • say. That is big, and you did it as an act of your will. If you
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:59.020
  • didn't do what I asked you to do,
  • 00:10:59.030 --> 00:11:02.180
  • now we know your first problem, you're disobedient,
  • 00:11:02.190 --> 00:11:04.250
  • you're slow to react. 'Well, it's just a television
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:07.260
  • broadcast.' Well, all right, shut the TV off then. No,
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:10.210
  • don't. GLORIA: Watch it. KENNETH: Yeah,
  • 00:11:10.220 --> 00:11:15.100
  • but now you can see the point. You can sit there,
  • 00:11:15.110 --> 00:11:19.060
  • and argue with it in your mind, and...but it's what comes out
  • 00:11:19.070 --> 00:11:21.260
  • your mouth, the words. The power's in the words,
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:27.250
  • not in thoughts. I came home from school,
  • 00:11:27.260 --> 00:11:31.050
  • I was going to Oral Roberts University back there 52 years
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:33.180
  • ago, and I came home from school,
  • 00:11:33.190 --> 00:11:36.250
  • and Gloria was outside hanging clothes out on the clothing
  • 00:11:36.260 --> 00:11:40.040
  • line. And when I came in, she said 'Ken,
  • 00:11:40.050 --> 00:11:42.210
  • I want you to listen to this.' Mark 11:22,
  • 00:11:42.220 --> 00:11:46.080
  • 23, and 24: Whosoever shall say unto this mountain,
  • 00:11:46.090 --> 00:11:55.050
  • be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea,
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:12:00.080
  • shall not doubt in his heart, but believe that those things
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:04.270
  • which he sayeth shall come to pass,
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:07.160
  • he shall have whatsoever he sayeth,
  • 00:12:07.170 --> 00:12:09.160
  • and she said, 'Kenneth, the Lord showed me this today,
  • 00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:18.260
  • I have to believe that everything I say comes to pass,
  • 00:12:18.270 --> 00:12:24.110
  • good, or bad.' That's the revelation of it,
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:28.170
  • 'cause this is a spiritual law, or you're snared by the words of
  • 00:12:28.180 --> 00:12:33.180
  • your mouth, or you're blessed with the words of your mouth.
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:35.230
  • GLORIA: Yeah, that's right. KENNETH: You can have words of
  • 00:12:35.240 --> 00:12:37.250
  • faith, or words or fear, it's your choice. I mean,
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:39.160
  • I'm gonna read you something else here. GLORIA: Read it to
  • 00:12:39.170 --> 00:12:43.110
  • us. KENNETH: From the book of Deuteronomy in the 30th chapter,
  • 00:12:43.120 --> 00:12:52.060
  • the 19th verse. This is God speaking. 'I call heaven,
  • 00:12:52.070 --> 00:13:01.160
  • and earth to record this day against you,
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:04.110
  • that I have set before you life and death blessing and cursing:
  • 00:13:04.120 --> 00:13:14.140
  • therefore choose life. Now, what is the understood subject of the
  • 00:13:14.150 --> 00:13:18.130
  • sentence? You. Therefore, you choose. God's already done his
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:23.150
  • part. He's already chosen you. Amen. He took care of it before
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:29.150
  • the foundation of the world, sweetheart. 'You choose life,
  • 00:13:29.160 --> 00:13:32.010
  • that both you, and your seed may live.' Now,
  • 00:13:32.020 --> 00:13:36.200
  • in order to choose life, you have to choose life words,
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:39.080
  • and faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. When
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:44.200
  • you get his word down in your spirit,
  • 00:13:44.210 --> 00:13:49.190
  • faith-filled words dominate the laws of sin,
  • 00:13:49.200 --> 00:13:53.270
  • and death. In Romans chapter eight: 'There is therefore now
  • 00:13:53.280 --> 00:13:58.250
  • no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus,
  • 00:13:58.260 --> 00:14:01.220
  • who walk after the Spirit, and not after the flesh. For the law
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:08.100
  • of the Spirit of life.' See? Life. 'Has made me free from the
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:14.210
  • law of sin, and death.' These are spiritual laws. They work
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:20.120
  • all the time. They're just like the law of gravity. You know,
  • 00:14:20.130 --> 00:14:24.220
  • I don't care who you are, what you do,
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:26.230
  • or what you say, it works. Now, that's the same thing with
  • 00:14:26.240 --> 00:14:29.180
  • spiritual laws. If you're speaking laws of death,
  • 00:14:29.190 --> 00:14:33.270
  • then they work. 'Well, nothing ever works out for me,
  • 00:14:33.280 --> 00:14:37.140
  • it just seems like to me', and I'll tell you,
  • 00:14:37.150 --> 00:14:39.270
  • one of the most dangerous things for any born-again child of God,
  • 00:14:39.280 --> 00:14:45.230
  • it's dangerous for anybody, but for Christians,
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:49.070
  • oh Lord. To use the cursed side, the laws of sin,
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:56.010
  • and death to express yourself. My,
  • 00:14:56.020 --> 00:14:58.240
  • my, don't do that. It thrills me to death,
  • 00:14:58.250 --> 00:15:03.290
  • scared me to death. I'm just dying to go,
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:06.160
  • and you say something stupid like,
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:10.000
  • 'Well, I'll be back if a train don't hit me',
  • 00:15:10.010 --> 00:15:12.160
  • you know, ha, ha, ha. But all this,
  • 00:15:12.170 --> 00:15:16.100
  • and that's dangerous, you just licensed the devil to move in on
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:19.040
  • you on everything, and if it wasn't for the grace of God,
  • 00:15:19.050 --> 00:15:22.050
  • all of us would have been killed a long time ago. So,
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:25.040
  • talk to yourself about these things,
  • 00:15:25.050 --> 00:15:28.200
  • get with your faith buddy. Gloria,
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:30.270
  • and I, well when we first started learning these things,
  • 00:15:30.280 --> 00:15:34.040
  • I'm telling you, and I talked all the time,
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:36.280
  • she didn't talk much, but I'd say something,
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:40.030
  • "Oh, you know this..." Well, we were painting inside of our
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:47.150
  • little project house while I was going to school at ORU. The
  • 00:15:47.160 --> 00:15:51.240
  • walls were just terrible, and we were in there painting 'em,
  • 00:15:51.250 --> 00:15:54.270
  • and of course our landlord bought the cheapest brush you
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:58.240
  • could buy, which I don't blame him,
  • 00:15:58.250 --> 00:16:01.160
  • I would have too, and I was painting along here,
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:04.070
  • and Gloria's in the other room there,
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:05.290
  • and the whole house wasn't much bigger than this right here.
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:09.100
  • GLORIA: True. KENNETH: But anyway,
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:11.110
  • and a bristle out of that brush stuck in that paint,
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:14.140
  • and God's teaching us, see? This wouldn't have happened
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:16.200
  • otherwise. We're just getting ahold of this. You have what you
  • 00:16:16.210 --> 00:16:19.230
  • say. I reached up there, and got that,
  • 00:16:19.240 --> 00:16:22.010
  • and I said, 'That paintbrush is coming all to pieces',
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:28.090
  • dipped it in there, the next swipe,
  • 00:16:28.100 --> 00:16:31.100
  • the whole thing, the whole bristle,
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:35.270
  • I didn't have nothing, but a handle left,
  • 00:16:35.280 --> 00:16:37.140
  • and it's sticking there in that paint. I said,
  • 00:16:37.150 --> 00:16:39.280
  • 'Gloria, come here, come here, come here',
  • 00:16:39.290 --> 00:16:41.290
  • she running, and I said, 'Look', and she's just poking up,
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:44.030
  • she's just hee-hawin', she said, 'Well I heard you say it.'
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:49.190
  • GLORIA: That was confirmation of the word. KENNETH: But see,
  • 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:53.030
  • the Lord was teaching us, he's teaching us,
  • 00:16:53.040 --> 00:16:55.010
  • and I'd say something, 'Man, that happens every time I do
  • 00:16:55.020 --> 00:16:59.290
  • that', and she'd say, 'Well, that's your confession. I
  • 00:17:00.020 --> 00:17:04.150
  • believe it.' Okay, okay. Okay. Okay,
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:07.020
  • and Keith, and Phyllis Moore, I like what they did. GLORIA:
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:12.210
  • What'd they do? KENNETH: 'If you say so.' GLORIA: 'If you say
  • 00:17:12.220 --> 00:17:16.080
  • so.' That's good. KENNETH: That's the way it is. If you say
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:18.080
  • so, that's the way it is. You need somebody to help you. 'Oh,
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:21.090
  • brother Copeland, I don't have anybody like that.' Yeah,
  • 00:17:21.100 --> 00:17:23.240
  • you do. His name's Jesus. GLORIA: Yeah,
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:25.260
  • that's right. KENNETH: But find you a faith buddy,
  • 00:17:25.270 --> 00:17:28.150
  • and don't get mad when you get corrected,
  • 00:17:28.160 --> 00:17:32.210
  • okay? Just laugh, and say, 'Oh, thank you Jesus,
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:35.240
  • that woman you gave me', amen, and it was amazing,
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:40.100
  • but we're learning, and 'Well, you're being too picky.' No,
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:43.240
  • we're being trained, and when you're in training,
  • 00:17:43.250 --> 00:17:46.130
  • you're really picky. You're really picky,
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:48.190
  • 'cause you got an opponent, and his name is the devil. GLORIA:
  • 00:17:48.200 --> 00:17:53.100
  • There's a difference in boot camp,
  • 00:17:53.110 --> 00:17:54.280
  • and Boy Scouts, isn't it? KENNETH: Oh yeah. GLORIA: Not
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:57.120
  • that I've been in boot camp. KENNETH: You're gonna hear that
  • 00:17:57.130 --> 00:17:59.090
  • coming back at you. I like that, Gloria Jean. That's really good.
  • 00:17:59.100 --> 00:18:02.100
  • Yeah, there is. There's a whole lot of difference in basic
  • 00:18:02.110 --> 00:18:05.050
  • training when I was in the army, than having a good time at camp.
  • 00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:10.000
  • GLORIA: Yeah. KENNETH: Yeah, yeah,
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:12.030
  • you're up against an enemy, and so you gotta train like you
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:14.000
  • fight, and then you wind up fighting like you train. When
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:18.050
  • we'd go to retrain at the training center,
  • 00:18:18.060 --> 00:18:25.080
  • and we'd go in there, and get in that simulator,
  • 00:18:25.090 --> 00:18:29.090
  • boy, I'll tell you what, they're hard on you,
  • 00:18:29.100 --> 00:18:31.230
  • they need to be. GLORIA: Trying to save to your life. KENNETH:
  • 00:18:31.240 --> 00:18:36.160
  • And they simulator's harder to fly than the airplane. That
  • 00:18:36.170 --> 00:18:38.140
  • simulator will bite you. It should be,
  • 00:18:38.150 --> 00:18:42.070
  • and you go in there feeling pretty good about yourself.
  • 00:18:42.080 --> 00:18:45.150
  • You've been doing good flying the airplane,

  • or the first hour, or two, that thing just eats you up,
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:57.090
  • 'cause your scan is slowing, and by the time you get out of
  • 00:18:57.100 --> 00:19:00.160

  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:27.070
  • This is not a book about somebody,

  • You know, where a lot of people miss it is with their children.
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:37.130
  • KENNETH: Oh yeah. GLORIA: Maybe they've got a kid that's just
  • 00:19:37.140 --> 00:19:40.150
  • not perfect. You know, he does little things they don't want
  • 00:19:40.160 --> 00:19:43.120
  • him to do, they start saying, 'Well,

  • I don't know what he's going to amount to. Well,

  • 00:19:50.060 --> 00:19:55.130
  • GLORIA: And that's just opening the door to the devil,
  • 00:19:55.140 --> 00:19:59.270
  • anything like that. If you're gonna be negative,
  • 00:19:59.280 --> 00:20:03.270

  • KENNETH: Gloria, and I will be back in just a moment.
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:34.190
  • ANNOUNCER: Gloria Copeland had always wanted a log cabin. As
  • 00:21:43.040 --> 00:21:46.020
  • her dream for a genuine log home grew,
  • 00:21:46.030 --> 00:21:48.060
  • The Copeland's begin to pray, and believed to have one on
  • 00:21:48.070 --> 00:21:51.070
  • their property in southwest Arkansas. One day while visiting
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:54.200
  • there, they took a drive into town as they had done many
  • 00:21:54.210 --> 00:21:57.020
  • times. Suddenly Gloria said, "Stop the car. I want to go
  • 00:21:57.030 --> 00:22:00.160
  • look at that old house." They stepped out to examine a shiplap
  • 00:22:00.170 --> 00:22:03.170
  • covered home they had seen numerous times during their
  • 00:22:03.180 --> 00:22:07.010
  • visits. When brother Copeland lifted up some loose siding,
  • 00:22:07.020 --> 00:22:09.130
  • they found ax hewn logs underneath. It was a log cabin
  • 00:22:09.140 --> 00:22:12.100
  • well over 100 years old. The family that owned it sold it to
  • 00:22:12.110 --> 00:22:16.190
  • the Copeland's for just $500, and Mr. Wooten,
  • 00:22:16.200 --> 00:22:19.280
  • the same man who moved the main house onto their property,
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:23.010
  • moved the cabin to be nestled among trees on their land,
  • 00:22:23.020 --> 00:22:26.020
  • then restoration began. They were able to maintain all the
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:29.090
  • original logs, and had them rechinked just as they would
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:32.170
  • have been. There's a dog trot, or breezeway that goes straight
  • 00:22:32.180 --> 00:22:35.270
  • down the middle, wide, front, and back porches are perfect for
  • 00:22:35.280 --> 00:22:38.260
  • quiet times of prayer, and reading the word. Gloria,
  • 00:22:38.270 --> 00:22:41.220
  • and her mother worked to decorate the interior,
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:44.020
  • hand-making pillows, and specially selecting items to
  • 00:22:44.030 --> 00:22:46.290
  • create a country, cozy feel. They filled the cabin with
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:50.040
  • antique furniture collected over the years,
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:52.110
  • highlighting it throughout with blue,
  • 00:22:52.120 --> 00:22:54.190
  • and white decor. What was once dark attic space,
  • 00:22:54.200 --> 00:22:57.120
  • they lovingly converted into the cheerful bunny room for the
  • 00:22:57.130 --> 00:23:00.240
  • grandkids. A place of prayer, and family gatherings,
  • 00:23:00.250 --> 00:23:03.220
  • the log cabin has been a peaceful retreat for many years.
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:07.160
  • KENNETH: Now, Friday is always offering day on the Believers
  • 00:23:09.040 --> 00:23:12.220
  • Voice of Victory broadcast. Now, from the book of Philippians in
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:16.120
  • the Fourth Chapter, and the 15th verse: 'Now you Philippians know
  • 00:23:16.130 --> 00:23:23.220
  • also that in the beginning of the Gospel when I departed from
  • 00:23:23.230 --> 00:23:28.130
  • Macedonia, no church communicated with me as
  • 00:23:28.140 --> 00:23:31.050
  • concerning giving, and receiving,
  • 00:23:31.060 --> 00:23:33.270
  • but you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent once again
  • 00:23:33.280 --> 00:23:37.000
  • under my necessity.' Listen to this,
  • 00:23:37.010 --> 00:23:39.100
  • 'not because I desire a gift, but because I desire fruit that
  • 00:23:39.110 --> 00:23:45.110
  • may abound to your account.' You have a heavenly account,
  • 00:23:45.120 --> 00:23:50.040
  • and the Bible says that you may lay hold,
  • 00:23:50.050 --> 00:23:54.200
  • let me lay hold of it, and I always thought you lay up your
  • 00:23:54.210 --> 00:24:01.220
  • treasures in heaven when you get there. No,
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:04.030
  • no, no, no, that's a heavenly account. You deposit in it,
  • 00:24:04.040 --> 00:24:09.030
  • and then you withdraw from it by faith. 'But I have all,
  • 00:24:09.040 --> 00:24:11.280
  • and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the
  • 00:24:11.290 --> 00:24:16.150
  • things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell,
  • 00:24:16.160 --> 00:24:20.100
  • and a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God,
  • 00:24:20.110 --> 00:24:23.020
  • but my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in
  • 00:24:23.030 --> 00:24:27.210
  • glory.' How? By Christ. By the anointing of Jesus Christ of
  • 00:24:27.220 --> 00:24:34.040
  • Nazareth. Now, I want to say this today,
  • 00:24:34.050 --> 00:24:37.140
  • I need partners. God has assigned us so much to do. We
  • 00:24:37.150 --> 00:24:48.120
  • can't do it, I can't do it without you. We've got Jesus,
  • 00:24:48.130 --> 00:24:51.280
  • and all around you. I can't do it without you. Right on this
  • 00:24:51.290 --> 00:24:56.050
  • broadcast, God promised us a million partners. Now you get
  • 00:24:56.060 --> 00:24:59.200
  • yourself in here. Oh father, we pray over this offering today,
  • 00:24:59.210 --> 00:25:07.220
  • and we bless our partners, and we bless all in the sound of my
  • 00:25:07.230 --> 00:25:12.180
  • voice. We receive it by faith, and we declare the anointing of
  • 00:25:12.190 --> 00:25:17.260
  • increase that's on Gloria, and me,
  • 00:25:17.270 --> 00:25:20.150
