  • That ain't what I'm trying to get into you the most.
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:04.270
  • Cause you got the word, but Hebrews four says,
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:08.110
  • "You got word, but it's not being mixed with faith.
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:12.040
  • "And it's not propheting you."
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:14.020
  • I gotta get this spirit of faith up on you
  • 00:01:14.020 --> 00:01:16.250
  • so when you decree a thing that force of faith
  • 00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:21.060
  • will come out of your mouth and create what you want to see.
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:24.140
  • And you're not as aggressive as you were
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:27.180
  • when you didn't have it.
  • 00:01:27.250 --> 00:01:29.170
  • But I'm telling you the same thing!
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:32.140
  • Shh!
  • 00:01:33.270 --> 00:01:35.110
  • I sense a spirit of faith being released in this atmosphere.
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:51.240
  • Turn to somebody and say I'm a go home
  • 00:01:53.100 --> 00:01:55.060
  • and try something tonight!
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:57.140

  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:02.140
  • - [Audience] Glory to God!

  • Conrad the attitude to maintain a lead
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:14.050
  • is different from and added to the plan to win.
  • 00:02:15.160 --> 00:02:19.270
  • Are you understand what I'm telling you?
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:24.060
  • Now if I go out here and get this jet.
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:27.120
  • Hey you know man, what the economy is saying.
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:32.130
  • Things may not go well after all.

  • I got 107 plus employees that I gotta look out for.
  • 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:41.200
  • See you start, you start counting up
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:46.140
  • all the stuff that you want to protect.
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:49.130
  • Opposed to going and stepping out
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:51.240
  • in faith like you once were.
  • 00:02:51.240 --> 00:02:54.140

  • Mike Freeman Ministry was anything anyway.
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:02:59.280
  • So what, I'll go out and speak to a building.
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:03.030

  • Get your stuff ready.
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:10.290
  • God has already told me there are gonna be
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:13.080
  • buildings that already are clearing out.
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:16.160

  • It's gonna be too much for this grid to handle.
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:24.090
  • It's gonna be too many property.
  • 00:03:24.090 --> 00:03:26.050

  • on top of all that what you already have.
  • 00:04:52.130 --> 00:04:55.030

  • And you disguise it as wisdom and faith.
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:06.050
  • But truly, you stepped out of the game.
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:10.000
  • So they called me, they said,
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:14.240
  • "The man said 14 five Pastor."
  • 00:10:16.260 --> 00:10:20.010

  • There was not one finance company seeking after me.
  • 00:10:44.040 --> 00:10:48.210

  • "the same kind of jet that your Pastor been looking for."
  • 00:11:02.280 --> 00:11:06.120
  • Now I've been having a model, Dr. Dee dee thought,
  • 00:11:07.160 --> 00:11:10.230
  • she heard that I wanted a G3.
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:14.050
  • She went out got a model of a G4
  • 00:11:14.050 --> 00:11:17.110
  • and she didn't know the difference.
  • 00:11:17.110 --> 00:11:18.220
  • I put the G4 in my meditation and prayer room.
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:22.230
  • G3 was thinking it's cool.
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:31.000
  • But now she put this G4 in there
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:33.070
  • and I see this G4 every single day.
  • 00:11:33.070 --> 00:11:35.250
  • I believe I receive.
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:37.170
  • See most of y'all homes are memorials
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:43.000
  • of stuff that you have done in the past.
  • 00:11:43.180 --> 00:11:46.120
  • You got pictures of stuff that you
  • 00:11:46.120 --> 00:11:48.040
  • have accomplished in the past,
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:50.080
  • but you ain't got nothing up to declare your future!
  • 00:11:50.080 --> 00:11:53.290
  • Where were y'all at when you took that picture?!
  • 00:11:58.110 --> 00:12:01.240
  • Where were y'all when you took that picture?!
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.220
  • "Oh yeah we had a good time."
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:05.080
  • I'm not talking about stuff you've already done!
  • 00:12:05.080 --> 00:12:08.050
  • I'm talking about stuff that you bout to do!
  • 00:12:08.050 --> 00:12:11.080
  • Glory to God!
  • 00:12:11.080 --> 00:12:12.270
  • Put up some pictures of where you going!
  • 00:12:14.120 --> 00:12:17.100
  • Glory to God are you hearing what.
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:25.090
  • I feel a praise break shout up!
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:28.240
  • Leave me alone man!
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:44.140
  • "He ain't gave us much scripture yet."
  • 00:12:44.140 --> 00:12:48.250
  • That ain't what I'm trying to get into you the most.
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:53.190
  • Cause you got the word, but Hebrews four says,
  • 00:12:53.190 --> 00:12:57.030
  • "You got word, but it's not being mixed with faith.
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:13:00.280
  • "And it's not propheting you."
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.260
  • I gotta get this spirit of faith up on you
  • 00:13:02.260 --> 00:13:05.190
  • so when you decree a thing that force of faith
  • 00:13:05.190 --> 00:13:10.000
  • will come out of your mouth and create what you want to see.
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:13.210
  • You need a man of faith that can walk boldly before you.
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:26.070
  • (pastor laughs)
  • 00:13:30.120 --> 00:13:32.100
  • I'm just laughing at what the enemy thought
  • 00:13:33.030 --> 00:13:35.150
  • he was gonna keep you down in.
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:38.070
  • (pastor laughs)
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:45.040
  • Some of y'all looking at me.
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:46.180
  • Thought you's gonna have to wear
  • 00:13:46.180 --> 00:13:47.160
  • that cheap weave all your life.
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:49.200
  • You ain't gonna have to wear that cheap weave all your.
  • 00:13:49.200 --> 00:13:52.110
  • Look at your neighbor and say
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:53.180
  • I'm gonna get me some good weave in my future.
  • 00:13:53.180 --> 00:13:55.170
  • (audience laughing)
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:58.060
  • I'm telling you Bruce,
  • 00:14:09.240 --> 00:14:11.070
  • it's a spirit.
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:14.150
  • It's a spirit of faith.
  • 00:14:15.040 --> 00:14:17.080
  • Cause you got many believers confessing the word.
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:23.020
  • I mean they confessing the word.
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:26.100
  • They confessing the word.
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:27.120
  • You got the word.
  • 00:14:27.120 --> 00:14:28.210
  • And you would think that yeah,
  • 00:14:28.210 --> 00:14:31.250
  • they gonna do well because they got that word
  • 00:14:31.250 --> 00:14:34.080
  • and all this thing together.
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:36.140
  • But what, why isn't your life changing?
  • 00:14:37.110 --> 00:14:41.140
  • Oh man I know the state of this flock.
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:46.230
  • And ah oh.
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:48.290
  • Let me just prophesy.
  • 00:14:48.290 --> 00:14:50.220
  • With this spirit of faith up on you,
  • 00:14:50.220 --> 00:14:53.110
  • you are going to boldly proclaim
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:56.090
  • and decree things that you have just drawn back on.
  • 00:14:56.090 --> 00:15:00.130
  • You going back to some of the stuff
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:02.160
  • you put your mouth on in the past,
  • 00:15:02.160 --> 00:15:04.220
  • and you gonna correct, make that correction
  • 00:15:04.220 --> 00:15:07.200
  • that you're supposed to make.
  • 00:15:07.200 --> 00:15:09.030
  • And your spirit, you have repented of drawing back
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:12.080
  • and now you're gonna go for it.
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:14.020
  • You're not playing just not to lose.
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:16.190
  • You gonna play bless God to win.
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:18.270
  • Did you hear what I said?
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:21.290
  • Now this correction is simply for direction.
  • 00:15:27.160 --> 00:15:30.100
  • And what's gonna happen is this.
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:33.050
  • What's gonna happen is, and most people,
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:35.210
  • their souls have not been fixed enough
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:39.200
  • to know how to pull that which is
  • 00:15:40.120 --> 00:15:42.240
  • on the radar into their life.
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:45.160
  • I kinda explained it to the pastors
  • 00:15:49.080 --> 00:15:50.280
  • that were with me earlier at the parsonage at the big house.
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:54.190
  • I said it's the equivalent
  • 00:15:55.060 --> 00:15:57.020
  • of a spider spinning.
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:16:01.000
  • Do they spun, spin a web, what's the word.
  • 00:16:01.000 --> 00:16:03.260
  • They spin a web.
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:06.080
  • Spin a web.
  • 00:16:09.010 --> 00:16:10.110
  • They'll connect to this part of something.
  • 00:16:10.110 --> 00:16:12.290
  • And then connect to this part of something.
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:15.210
  • They'll connect to this part of something.
  • 00:16:15.210 --> 00:16:18.000
  • And then they'll take and begin to spin
  • 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:21.240
  • this web all the way around.
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.220
  • All the way around.
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:25.090
  • Until almost they get into the direct
  • 00:16:25.090 --> 00:16:28.180
  • position of the bulls eye.
  • 00:16:28.180 --> 00:16:30.210
  • It's designed, watch this.
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:34.220
  • To be strategically placed where as the wind blows,
  • 00:16:34.220 --> 00:16:39.180
  • it's really, it's an invisible field or grid,
  • 00:16:39.180 --> 00:16:44.010
  • that when something hits on it,
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:48.070
  • they know we got something.
  • 00:16:49.100 --> 00:16:50.280
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:16:50.280 --> 00:16:52.090
  • Most of them understand if it's a twig.
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:55.270
  • If it's something that is not profitable for them.
  • 00:16:57.040 --> 00:17:01.040
  • Are you understanding what I'm saying?
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:02.240
  • Do you see where I'm going?
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:04.250
  • But there are times when something will hit.
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:09.090
  • And they know that's not just a regular hit.
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:14.050
  • You better hear what I'm saying.
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:17.140
  • It's something different.
  • 00:17:17.140 --> 00:17:19.020
  • I sense something that's been caught up
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:21.190
  • on this grid this web.
  • 00:17:21.190 --> 00:17:24.040
  • And now, now watch this.
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:26.070
  • They come out of a place
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:27.290
  • and they make their way over to an insect or bug.
  • 00:17:27.290 --> 00:17:32.070
  • And then they begin to spin that web all around
  • 00:17:32.070 --> 00:17:34.280
  • that thing so that they can maintain it.
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:37.090
  • It won't get away.
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:38.170
  • What I'm telling you, watch this.
  • 00:17:38.170 --> 00:17:40.150
  • Something has hit this church!
  • 00:17:40.150 --> 00:17:43.240
  • You better get a hold of what I'm saying.
  • 00:17:45.040 --> 00:17:47.030
  • And this just ain't a twig!
  • 00:17:47.030 --> 00:17:48.230
  • This ain't just another mood.
  • 00:17:48.230 --> 00:17:50.120
  • This is something different!
  • 00:17:50.120 --> 00:17:53.060
  • Look at your neighbor and say
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:56.140
  • this is something different that's up on us.
  • 00:17:56.140 --> 00:17:58.040
  • - [Audience] This is something different that's up on us.
  • 00:17:58.040 --> 00:18:00.150
  • - And they go and they wrap it up.
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:05.150
  • They position themself for possession.
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:09.240
  • Turn to your neighbor and say
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:11.220
  • set yourself for increase.
  • 00:18:11.220 --> 00:18:13.190
  • - [Audience] Set yourself for increase.
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:16.020
  • They call back and say "Pastor,
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:24.100
  • "they said 12 million."
  • 00:18:25.240 --> 00:18:28.050
  • That still ain't eight.
  • 00:18:31.140 --> 00:18:33.160
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:35.090
  • Before I got in the game,
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:37.070
  • no one was saying anything.
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:39.030
  • Awe you don't understand.
  • 00:18:39.030 --> 00:18:39.290
  • Watch this.
  • 00:18:39.290 --> 00:18:41.070
  • You ever, wanted
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:44.260
  • a certain kind of car?
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:46.270
  • (pastor laughs)
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:50.210
  • But prior to wanting that car,
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:55.280
  • that car seemed to not show up.
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:18:59.280
  • But the minute you got the game,
  • 00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:05.080
  • say I want a Lexus.
  • 00:19:05.080 --> 00:19:08.020
  • Everywhere you turn.

  • Dad look at the Lexus!

  • Yeah.
  • 00:19:21.150 --> 00:19:22.260
