  • 00:00:03.170 --> 00:00:06.130
  • you today. I need to know, I need to know
  • 00:00:06.140 --> 00:00:09.180
  • what to do about this." Sit down and pray in
  • 00:00:09.190 --> 00:00:11.190
  • the Spirit, "I believe I receive your direction."
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:13.180
  • (Singing) I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:21.050
  • I know my God has made the way for me.

  • ANNOUNCER: As you speak the truth in love
  • 00:00:35.260 --> 00:00:37.040
  • and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:00:37.050 --> 00:00:39.120
  • defeat becomes a thing of the past. Join Kenneth
  • 00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:43.040
  • Copeland today as he brings more insight
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:45.100
  • on faith, next, on the Believer's Voice of Victory.
  • 00:00:45.110 --> 00:00:48.260
  • KENNETH: Jesus said, "Man doesn't live by bread
  • 00:00:51.080 --> 00:00:54.130
  • alone," natural food alone, "but by every word that proceeds from
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:58.120
  • the mouth of God." "Faith cometh by hearing, hearing by the Word
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:01:01.170
  • of God." Amen. So get into--get into this. "Thank You, Lord, I'm
  • 00:01:01.180 --> 00:01:07.270
  • coming before You today. I'm in Your Word. I'm listening to CDs.
  • 00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:12.130
  • I'm watching the DVDs today, but I'm feeding my spirit. I'm
  • 00:01:12.140 --> 00:01:16.220
  • taking faith food. I'm receiving faith food. I'm renewing my
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:20.170
  • mind, but I'm feeding my spirit, and my faith is coming." Talk to
  • 00:01:20.180 --> 00:01:26.100
  • your faith, see? You believe in your heart, you say it in your
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:28.250
  • mouth. "I believe in my heart--I believe my faith is growing." I
  • 00:01:28.260 --> 00:01:31.190
  • say it, "Come on, faith. I'm speaking to you like I speak to
  • 00:01:31.200 --> 00:01:34.130
  • the mountain. Come on, grow up. Come on, get strong. Come on,
  • 00:01:34.140 --> 00:01:38.020
  • strength." "Well, how do I get strength?" Well, the joy of the
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:40.240
  • Lord is your strength. "Huh?" That's what Nehemiah said, "The
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:45.120
  • joy of the Lord is your strength." "Uh, if it's going to
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:50.040
  • take joy, I ain't never gonna make it. Ugh." You got born
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:57.000
  • again. Look at Galatians 5. Well, let's go over there and
  • 00:01:57.010 --> 00:02:00.160
  • look at it. I don't trust you. Ha-ha-ha-ha. I tell you to go
  • 00:02:00.170 --> 00:02:05.110
  • look at it, you might not do it. Glory to God. Let's go over
  • 00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:08.030
  • there and take a look at this. Galatians 5, and let's look at
  • 00:02:08.040 --> 00:02:13.190
  • the 22nd verse. "But the fruit of the Spirit--" well, let's
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:19.230
  • back up here a minute. You notice the word "Spirit" here is
  • 00:02:19.240 --> 00:02:24.130
  • capitalized. Now, in the Greek text, there are no capital
  • 00:02:24.140 --> 00:02:31.280
  • letters and there are no punctuation marks, not like
  • 00:02:31.290 --> 00:02:34.250
  • English marks. So the translators just had to do the
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:39.020
  • best they could with it. But if you--if you'll study this a
  • 00:02:39.030 --> 00:02:42.220
  • minute, it's very clear. Back up here, the 16th verse, where the
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:48.260
  • Word says, "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you will
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:55.130
  • not fulfill the lust of the flesh." It's not talking about
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:03:00.140
  • walking in the Holy Spirit. It's talking about spirit, soul, and
  • 00:03:00.150 --> 00:03:06.010
  • body. It's talking about walking in your born-again spirit man.
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:15.090
  • And we can look at it--we can prove it right here. Now listen
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:19.130
  • to me carefully. "For the flesh lusteth," or puts pressure,
  • 00:03:19.140 --> 00:03:26.200
  • "against the Spirit." Your flesh don't put pressure against the
  • 00:03:26.210 --> 00:03:32.030
  • Holy Spirit. Your flesh puts pressure on your born-again
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:36.260
  • spirit. Amen. And your born-again spirit puts pressure
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:42.060
  • against the flesh. It's trying to get you to stop doing that
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:44.270
  • and quit walking by sight and start walking by faith. Amen. So
  • 00:03:44.280 --> 00:03:51.010
  • now notice this. Let's go back over there again. "The fruit of
  • 00:03:51.020 --> 00:03:54.030
  • the Spirit is love--" Well, that's God. Well, yeah,
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:04:00.280
  • they--all of these things, all of these nine fruits here,
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:05.020
  • they're all God. Amen. You--when you were recreated in Christ
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:10.180
  • Jesus, the--all of these were deposited in you because the
  • 00:04:10.190 --> 00:04:13.250
  • Spirit of God came inside to live inside you. All of these
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:19.070
  • are in your spirit. They are available to you. They were put
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:22.210
  • there the moment you got born again. This is different from
  • 00:04:22.220 --> 00:04:25.230
  • the gifts of the Spirit in I Corinthians 12, 13, and 14. This
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:30.020
  • is the fruit of the Spirit. So by faith I need to develop "the
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:38.100
  • fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering," or
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:46.220
  • patience, endurance, "gentleness, goodness, faith,"
  • 00:04:46.230 --> 00:04:51.070
  • or faithfulness, someone who can be depended upon, "meekness."
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:56.110
  • Meekness is not weakness. It's not being weak. Being meek is
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:05:04.010
  • humility. Humility is not self-debasement. Humility is
  • 00:05:04.020 --> 00:05:10.010
  • when you bow your knee before God. See, joy of the Lord makes
  • 00:05:10.020 --> 00:05:14.290
  • me strong. "Well, how can the meekness make me weak?" Now,
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:19.070
  • that--you know--that's just borderline stupid right there,
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:22.060
  • but--(Laughs) Forgive me. (Laughs) You forgive me too,
  • 00:05:22.070 --> 00:05:30.090
  • Lord--amen--because I've been just as stupid as that myself,
  • 00:05:30.100 --> 00:05:33.090
  • or worse. But meekness, true humility, Bible humility, is to
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:47.060
  • humble yourself to God and His Word, put His Word first place,
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:53.160
  • not what you and I think about it, but what it says. Be New
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:57.090
  • Testament taught instead of religiously brainwashed. Just
  • 00:05:57.100 --> 00:06:02.170
  • believe anything that comes passing by. No, hey, this as
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:08.250
  • much a manifestation of God in the earth as the Father, the
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:13.280
  • Son, and the Holy Ghost. In the beginning was the Word. The Word
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:17.220
  • was with God. The Word was God. Amen? Now, thank You, Lord.
  • 00:06:17.230 --> 00:06:29.020
  • "--meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:38.030
  • Developing or growing--ha-ha-ha--it's diet and
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:46.280
  • exercise. (Laughs) Oh, glory to God. Thank You, Lord Jesus.
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:52.170
  • Being a doer of the Word, not just a hearer only. "Well, faith
  • 00:06:52.180 --> 00:06:59.200
  • cometh by hearing." Oh, yeah, and we need to hear. And there
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:03.210
  • are people that, you know, listen to two or three, four CDs
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:09.050
  • a week and maybe two or three of them a day, they--and I mean,
  • 00:07:09.060 --> 00:07:11.260
  • they are in every meeting they can get in. They come to the
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:15.180
  • Believers' conventions. They go to Brother Moore's. They--they
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:18.180
  • go--you know, they--every time Creflo has a meeting then they
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:22.030
  • go to that one. And then--and every time Jerry Savelle has a
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:25.010
  • meeting, they go to that one. Glory to God. "Yes, amen. Oh,
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:29.180
  • I'm there brother." You're enjoying good health aren't you?
  • 00:07:29.190 --> 00:07:34.280
  • "Nah. I just don't know how come God don't heal me." You haven't
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:40.240
  • acted on the Word. You're just a big, fat--spiritually--believer.
  • 00:07:40.250 --> 00:07:48.120
  • But you're fat on faith, but unless you put it into action,
  • 00:07:48.130 --> 00:07:54.030
  • it hasn't been released. "Well, brother, I just don't understand
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:58.100
  • this. I just got all kinds of faith. I just--" Well, release
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:04.040
  • it! It must get out of your spirit, into your mouth, and out
  • 00:08:04.050 --> 00:08:09.210
  • your mouth, and hold on to the Word of the living God. If
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:15.130
  • you're having trouble in that area, if you're--if you're not
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:19.110
  • developing properly, walk right up to that mirror in the
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:24.180
  • morning. Listen to me now, I mean this. I do it. I do it
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:29.230
  • everyday. I look myself right in the mirror, and I look right in
  • 00:08:29.240 --> 00:08:39.030
  • my eyes and I say, "I believe this. But more than believing
  • 00:08:39.040 --> 00:08:47.090
  • this, I know this is true: Surely He hath borne my griefs,
  • 00:08:47.100 --> 00:09:01.210
  • carried my sorrows (weaknesses, diseases, sicknesses) and pains.
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:09.050
  • We did esteem Him stricken of God, and afflicted. But He was
  • 00:09:09.060 --> 00:09:16.020
  • wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for my
  • 00:09:16.030 --> 00:09:20.100
  • iniquities; chastisement of my peace was upon Him, and with His
  • 00:09:20.110 --> 00:09:29.030
  • stripes we are healed. Jesus cast out the spirits with His
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:37.230
  • word, fulfilling that which was spoken by the prophet Isaiah
  • 00:09:37.240 --> 00:09:42.190
  • that He took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses. Himself
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:48.260
  • bore our sins on His own body on the tree. I know this. I don't
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:55.070
  • just believe this, I know this. I know it so. I know it. Glory
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:10:01.170
  • to God. Whether I feel like it or not, I believe it. Whether I
  • 00:10:01.180 --> 00:10:04.250
  • see it or not, I believe it because I know it. I believe
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:07.270
  • every word of it. That we, being dead to sin--now--now listen to
  • 00:10:07.280 --> 00:10:15.020
  • me carefully because I am going to add a little something to
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:16.210
  • this: That we being dead to sin, sickness, and disease, that we
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:24.020
  • live under righteousness, delivered from the curse and set
  • 00:10:24.030 --> 00:10:28.220
  • free, by Whose stripes I was healed. If I was healed, I am
  • 00:10:28.230 --> 00:10:36.220
  • healed now. And Mark 11:23, Jesus said, "whosoever shall say
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:43.170
  • unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and cast into the sea;
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:48.050
  • and shall not doubt in his heart--" I do not doubt in my
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:53.140
  • heart. Sin, sickness, disease, get out of me! Be thou removed,
  • 00:10:53.150 --> 00:10:59.210
  • and be thou cast into the sea. I take it! It's mine! I believe
  • 00:10:59.220 --> 00:11:05.230
  • it, receive it! It's mine. Then don't change that all day long.
  • 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:10.220
  • I don't care--oh, thank God. I don't believe this, I believe
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:17.040
  • that. I don't believe that, what that bank account says, I
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:23.100
  • believe that! The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He
  • 00:11:23.110 --> 00:11:26.270
  • adds no sorrow with it! All of my needs are supplied by His
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:35.230
  • riches in glory. I have a full supply, thank you very much. And
  • 00:11:35.240 --> 00:11:40.160
  • then just start praising God, worshiping Him. Put your eyes on
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:43.270
  • those verses. Look them up. If you don't know where they are,
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:46.100
  • I'm not going to do all your homework for you. Get your--get
  • 00:11:46.110 --> 00:11:48.180
  • you a good concordance and dig in there. I mean, get one
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:52.100
  • online. You make sure you get--you make sure you don't get
  • 00:11:52.110 --> 00:11:57.030
  • off on some other wild tangent by doing that. Amen. Get a good
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:12:02.220
  • Strong's Concordance. Get a Young's Concordance. Get
  • 00:12:02.230 --> 00:12:05.180
  • something that you can trust and depend on and look all-- "I
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:09.140
  • don't know how to do that?" Well, learn how! Ha-ha-ha-ha.
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:12.240
  • Amen. Dig in, sister. Dig in, brother. Hallelujah. Because
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:16.290
  • you're on a--you've got to feed on these things. "Well, I just
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:21.140
  • don't have time." Well, you got time enough to sit there and
  • 00:12:21.150 --> 00:12:23.060
  • watch that television half of the day. Cut that stuff out.
  • 00:12:23.070 --> 00:12:27.000
  • Ha-ha! I walked into something. Oh, dear Lord Jesus. Oh, help me
  • 00:12:27.010 --> 00:12:34.160
  • Lord. "Hep me, hep me!" (Laughs) I--(Laughs) Oh, dear Jesus.
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:39.180
  • Someone had asked me to come down there, and pray for
  • 00:12:39.190 --> 00:12:43.090
  • so-and-so in the hospital, and I did, I went down there. And, you
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:46.170
  • know, these--these are good people, they're born-again
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:49.170
  • people, laying up there sick in the hospital with the TV on,
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:53.240
  • watching General Hospital. One of those--I don't know what's on
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:13:05.170
  • there now because I don't watch that stuff. But it was--back
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:09.070
  • there then, it was the big--it was the big serial, everyday,
  • 00:13:09.080 --> 00:13:14.080
  • General Hospital, all these sick people. They're laying there
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:19.040
  • thinking, "Oh, yeah, look at that. That's--oh, yeah, that's
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:22.080
  • neat." Man! Forgive me. (Laughs) "A thought unspoken dies
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:32.230
  • unborn." (Laughs) Amen. Thank You, Jesus. Oh, glory to God!
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:40.100
  • Speak to the fruit of the Spirit. If we live in the
  • 00:13:40.110 --> 00:13:42.290
  • Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Amen. Listening to your
  • 00:13:43.000 --> 00:13:48.250
  • spirit man, and practice and practice and practice. "Lord,
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:52.180
  • I'm listening for you today. I need to know. I need to know
  • 00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:55.240
  • what to do about this." Sit down and pray in the Spirit. "I
  • 00:13:55.250 --> 00:13:59.000
  • believe I'll receive your direction." Those that are
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:01.120
  • the--you know, that are led to the Spirit of God are called to
  • 00:14:01.130 --> 00:14:03.020
  • the sons of God. And there's that voice, right in here, but
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:05.250
  • you're going to have to shut up and be quiet long enough to hear
  • 00:14:05.260 --> 00:14:08.010
  • it. It will grow. It will become stronger. Now look with me in
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:13.040
  • the--thank You, Lord. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Oh, praise God. Help
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:25.200
  • me, Lord. Let's go with the 4th chapter of Ephesians. "That
  • 00:14:25.210 --> 00:14:30.060
  • we--" the 14th verse, "--we henceforth be no more children,
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:32.130
  • tossed to and fro, and carried about by every wind of doctrine,
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:35.180
  • by the slight of men, cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in
  • 00:14:35.190 --> 00:14:39.290
  • wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:48.030
  • into him in all things--" growing up into him. Growing up
  • 00:14:48.040 --> 00:14:55.090
  • into him. When you come--when--don't--don't be
  • 00:14:55.100 --> 00:14:58.220
  • gossiping and talking. I mean being tenderhearted, forgiving
  • 00:14:58.230 --> 00:15:03.240
  • one another even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven us,
  • 00:15:03.250 --> 00:15:06.160
  • amen, forgiven you. Develop the love, developing the fruit of
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:11.090
  • the Spirit and you get--no, no, no, no. Put it back down. Put it
  • 00:15:11.100 --> 00:15:15.230
  • back down. Put it back down. Temperance, which means self
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:20.040
  • control. "Oh, Brother Copeland, how am I going to do that?"
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:23.060
  • Yield to the Spirit of God. Say, "Lord, help me. Lord, help me
  • 00:15:23.070 --> 00:15:26.200
  • here. I'm growing. The fruit is growing. I got to speak in love.
  • 00:15:26.210 --> 00:15:31.000
  • I will speak in love. I believe God. I believe what the Word
  • 00:15:31.010 --> 00:15:34.190
  • says." You can't if you don't put it in your eyes, your ears,
  • 00:15:34.200 --> 00:15:38.040
  • in your heart, come out your mouth. Hallelujah. It's medicine
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:43.140
  • to all your flesh. But faith cometh, faith cometh.
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:47.070
  • Don't--don't, "Well, I don't feel anything." Forget the
  • 00:15:47.080 --> 00:15:50.030
  • feelings all right. Forget, just forget them. "Well, you don't
  • 00:15:50.040 --> 00:15:54.250
  • know how bad I feel." Well, I've felt just as bad as you. Well,
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:15:57.220
  • now maybe not. There's some really bad things that I've
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:16:03.200
  • never experienced. But, hey, His name is Jesus and He loves you
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:10.270
  • and He cares for you. I don't care what ugly, nasty thing
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:15.110
  • you've done. He's already been to hell with it. He's already
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:18.250
  • forgiven you. Now what you need to do is confess that sin and
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:23.160
  • receive His forgiveness. Now if you've never made Jesus Christ
  • 00:16:23.170 --> 00:16:26.140
  • the Lord of your life, don't go back trying to confess all those
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:29.150
  • sins. Confess Him as Lord and just wipe the slate clean!
  • 00:16:29.160 --> 00:16:35.000
  • (Laughs) Amen. Now the joy of the Lord is your strength. We're
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:41.160
  • back to that. "Oh! Oh, Lord, Brother Copeland, oh." No. Now,
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:48.280
  • wait a minute. No, no, no, no, no. I want you to listen to me
  • 00:16:48.290 --> 00:16:59.050
  • now. Medical science has proven that a put-on laugh has the same
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:11.010
  • effect on the brain and the body as a real, sure enough, good old
  • 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:19.010
  • belly laugh where you just get so tickled your side hurts, you
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:21.260
  • know. Now, you say, "Well, Brother Copeland, how could that
  • 00:17:21.270 --> 00:17:25.280
  • be?" Well, I'm about to tell you. Do it by faith. The
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:34.030
  • Scripture says, "The joy of the Lord is our strength, "and joy
  • 00:17:34.040 --> 00:17:37.080
  • is living in you, and I'm developing the fruit of the
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:39.280
  • Spirit. Ha-ha-ha. Now, I did that by faith. There ain't a
  • 00:17:39.290 --> 00:17:44.030
  • thing in the world--there's not a thing in this room that's
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:47.270
  • funny, unless maybe it's Tim. He's holding the cards up there
  • 00:17:47.280 --> 00:17:51.150
  • funny. No. Nah, I'm just picking on him. (Laughs) Anyway, yeah,
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:55.040
  • that worked, didn't it? Ha-ha-ha-ha. Hey, you got
  • 00:17:55.050 --> 00:17:57.190
  • tickled too, didn't you? Well, hey, pick it up! (Laughs
  • 00:17:57.200 --> 00:17:59.170
  • Hysterically) Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, Satan! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! "What are
  • 00:17:59.180 --> 00:18:09.220
  • you laughing at me about?" "Because you're a liar and the
  • 00:18:09.230 --> 00:18:12.190
  • father of it! And you told me I'm sick and I'm not. Jesus told
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:15.290
  • me I'm healed and I am! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha," and don't
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:20.180
  • quit. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! It'll eventually come up in there.
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:24.070
  • It--the joy of the Lord will come. It's in there.
  • 00:18:24.080 --> 00:18:26.220
  • It--it--prime the pump. Get it on up in there. Nothing happens
  • 00:18:26.230 --> 00:18:30.130
  • without faith! And that thought flashes across your mind of what
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:35.250
  • old Sister Bucketmouth said about you. Well, the--oh, no.
  • 00:18:35.260 --> 00:18:39.140
  • "Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! I've forgiven her. Ha-ha-ha, I love that
  • 00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:43.130
  • girl!" Whoa! (Mumbles) "Really?" Yeah. (Laughs) Oh, yeah. Oh,
  • 00:18:43.140 --> 00:18:51.150
  • yeah. I tell you, you can laugh yourself well. People have done
  • 00:18:51.160 --> 00:18:56.000
  • it that are not even born again! The Scripture says, "a merry
  • 00:18:56.010 --> 00:19:01.210
  • heart," not a merry pump, a merry spirit "does good like a
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:07.150
  • medicine." And there are people that have--one man that I'm
  • 00:19:07.160 --> 00:19:12.260
  • thinking about now, that just went out and bought all kinds of
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:17.150
  • old--old slapstick comedy movies. I mean old stuff,
  • 00:19:17.160 --> 00:19:22.050
  • brother. Some of it's silent. Now, you wouldn't think after
  • 00:19:22.060 --> 00:19:25.270
  • all of these super movies that we've got and everything, if
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:30.250
  • you've never--if you've never taken the time to get into some
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:36.060
  • of those old slapstick comedy silent movies, those guys had to
  • 00:19:36.070 --> 00:19:40.120
  • be good because you couldn't hear nothing that they were
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:42.200
  • saying. But funny! Buster Keaton, I'm telling you, I--you
  • 00:19:42.210 --> 00:19:48.180
  • can't watch that very long without cracking up. I don't
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:50.280
  • care how--I started to say, I don't care how bad your body's
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:56.020
  • hurting you. But when you're laughing, it releases
  • 00:19:56.030 --> 00:19:58.230
  • endorphins, which is stronger than morphine. That'll give you
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:20:05.140
  • something to--ha-ha-ha--laugh about. (Laughs) And he
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:09.180
  • had--he--this man that--that wrote this article had cancer,
  • 00:20:09.190 --> 00:20:15.150
  • was dying. And he went out and he got Laurel and Hardy movies.
  • 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:19.070
  • He got, you know, all--all them old slapstick comedians back
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:24.140
  • there. Comedies now ain't even funny. But back there then, man,
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:28.020
  • I mean, it's just gut-wrenching funny. And he laid there and
  • 00:20:28.030 --> 00:20:34.190
  • watched that and just "ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha,
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:39.220
  • ha-ha-ha. Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha." (Laughs) Prime the
  • 00:20:39.230 --> 00:20:50.150
  • pump by faith. "I'm laughing by faith. I'm laughing at you,
  • 00:20:50.160 --> 00:20:54.230
  • devil, by faith. I'm laughing at the pain." "I'm laughing at this
  • 00:20:54.240 --> 00:20:58.210
  • flu. I'm laughing at you! Ha-ha-ha-ha! You thought you
  • 00:20:58.220 --> 00:21:02.200
  • could put the flu on me. You can't because Jesus is living in
  • 00:21:02.210 --> 00:21:05.250
  • me!" I'm going to give part of Creflo Dollars' testimony. Tried
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:12.040
  • to put cancer on Creflo. He said, "You can't do that, Satan.
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:15.060
  • I've got a man living on the inside of me." Went--his next
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:20.290
  • doctor appointment, went in there and--whew--they looked at
  • 00:21:21.000 --> 00:21:27.130
  • the screen. And Creflo looked at his son. They both looked at the
  • 00:21:27.140 --> 00:21:31.180
  • doctor. And Creflo said, "Are you guys seeing this?" He said,
  • 00:21:31.190 --> 00:21:34.220
  • "Yeah." There was a picture of Jesus right on that screen.

  • JEREMY: There is no faith until you find out what God's
  • 00:23:44.130 --> 00:23:46.290
  • will is for your life. Faith begins where the will
  • 00:23:47.000 --> 00:23:50.060
  • of God is known. And God's will for you, and for me, and
  • 00:23:50.070 --> 00:23:53.040
  • for all of us, for all men, is to be born again. Now, I am, and
  • 00:23:53.050 --> 00:23:56.290
  • I know many people watching this are, but there may be some today
  • 00:23:57.000 --> 00:23:59.210
  • that have never made Jesus the Lord of your life. And the will
  • 00:23:59.220 --> 00:24:02.180
  • of God for you, you've been asking, "God, what am I here
  • 00:24:02.190 --> 00:24:04.180
  • for? Why am I on this earth?" Well, it begins with being born
  • 00:24:04.190 --> 00:24:08.240
  • again. You'll never know anything beyond that until you
  • 00:24:08.250 --> 00:24:13.040
  • experience that. If you've never been born again, if Jesus is not
  • 00:24:13.050 --> 00:24:16.050
  • the Lord of your life, it's so simple. Just pray this with me.
  • 00:24:16.060 --> 00:24:19.040
  • Just say it right out loud. "Father in heaven, I believe in
  • 00:24:19.050 --> 00:24:21.280
  • my heart, I confess with my mouth, Jesus is Lord. He's my
  • 00:24:21.290 --> 00:24:27.010
  • Lord. He lived for me, He died for me, He rose again for me.
  • 00:24:27.020 --> 00:24:32.010
  • Jesus, be the Lord of my life and fill me with Your Holy
  • 00:24:32.020 --> 00:24:36.200
  • Spirit. I receive it in Jesus' name, amen." Now, listen, I know
  • 00:24:36.210 --> 00:24:41.290
  • it's a simple prayer, but you're born again. The Bible says if
  • 00:24:42.000 --> 00:24:44.190
  • you believe it and you say it, you're saved, you're born again.
  • 00:24:44.200 --> 00:24:47.220
  • And you need to know that all of heaven rejoices with you and all
  • 00:24:47.230 --> 00:24:51.090
  • of Kenneth Copeland Ministries rejoices with you. And we want
  • 00:24:51.100 --> 00:24:53.180
  • to know about it. If you prayed that prayer with me for the
  • 00:24:53.190 --> 00:24:56.010
  • first time in your life, and you're born again, please
  • 00:24:56.020 --> 00:24:58.100
  • contact this ministry. Let us know, and let somebody just
  • 00:24:58.110 --> 00:25:01.040
  • shout with you on the other end of that phone. And what they're
  • 00:25:01.050 --> 00:25:04.030
  • going to do is they're going to send you this book. It's a free

  • book by my grandparents, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. It's called

  • "He Did It All for You." You need to find out what Jesus did
  • 00:25:08.250 --> 00:25:12.070
  • for you. It will change your life. And along with that,
  • 00:25:12.080 --> 00:25:14.230
  • they're going to send you a couple brochures. It's just
