  • And so my job is to pour faith
  • 00:00:04.050 --> 00:00:07.110
  • into every moment that you're around me.
  • 00:00:07.110 --> 00:00:09.240
  • Because moments are seized to minutes.
  • 00:00:09.240 --> 00:00:13.080
  • And minutes are seized to hours.
  • 00:00:13.080 --> 00:00:15.210
  • And hours are seized to days.
  • 00:00:15.210 --> 00:00:18.110
  • And days are seized to weeks.
  • 00:00:18.110 --> 00:00:20.290
  • And weeks are seized to months.
  • 00:00:20.290 --> 00:00:23.140
  • And months are seized to years.
  • 00:00:23.140 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • With something different up on you.
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.000
  • You ain't gonna be ready just to get into bed
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:05.280
  • and go to sleep tonight.
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:07.080
  • You gonna pray in the Holy Ghost a little bit.
  • 00:01:07.080 --> 00:01:10.270
  • You gonna charge yourself up.
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:13.020
  • You gonna know bless God.
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:14.280
  • "I was pulling back
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:16.280
  • "but Pastor told me it ain't time to pull back!"
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:20.160
  • This is the believers hour!
  • 00:01:20.160 --> 00:01:23.150
  • A faith that's not going to take no for an answer.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:31.220
  • Are you understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:33.030 --> 00:01:34.280
  • I'm not just talking about having a lot of work.
  • 00:01:34.280 --> 00:01:37.260
  • I'm talking about an attitude, a disposition..
  • 00:01:37.260 --> 00:01:41.190
  • A posture that is already in line
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:45.120
  • and conducive to what heaven is saying.
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:48.050
  • So that what ever God wants to get to me
  • 00:01:48.050 --> 00:01:51.090
  • it's gonna happen.
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.060
  • See what you got to realize,
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:54.010
  • God can do it by many or by one!
  • 00:01:54.010 --> 00:01:57.070
  • You just missed that.
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:02:00.220
  • And Pastors let me help you with something!
  • 00:02:00.220 --> 00:02:02.260
  • You've been trying to forecast your future
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:06.070
  • by the climate of your church
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:08.020
  • and what's been going on in your ministry.
  • 00:02:08.020 --> 00:02:10.160
  • Watch this!
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:11.200
  • But you're not control by the climate
  • 00:02:11.200 --> 00:02:14.020
  • of your church and what's going on
  • 00:02:14.020 --> 00:02:16.140
  • with the people in this economy.
  • 00:02:16.140 --> 00:02:18.170
  • Because if you keep looking at what you see,
  • 00:02:18.170 --> 00:02:21.110
  • you're not going to be able to maintain
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:23.150
  • this spirit of faith that I'm talking about.
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:26.140
  • And God can use one man!
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:32.200
  • You've been looking at your business
  • 00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:36.260
  • and you've been wondering how in the world
  • 00:02:36.260 --> 00:02:39.120
  • are you gonna be able to maintain the business
  • 00:02:39.120 --> 00:02:42.050
  • if you don't get multiple clients.
  • 00:02:42.050 --> 00:02:44.090
  • You don't need multiple clients!
  • 00:02:44.090 --> 00:02:46.090
  • All you need is one person!
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:48.240
  • You need person that will obey God!
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:54.280
  • Hunch your neighbor and say one person can write the check!
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:58.110
  • I wish I had somebody in here who.
  • 00:02:59.180 --> 00:03:02.200
  • And the danger is, because we see what's going on
  • 00:03:05.060 --> 00:03:10.060
  • in our economy by looking at the things
  • 00:03:10.080 --> 00:03:14.030
  • that we are a part of.
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:16.120
  • Especially Pastors.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:18.140
  • Pastors get together boy.
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:20.090
  • And that's why you gotta watch out who you hanging with.
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:22.110
  • "Dr. Freeman, how your church doing?"
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:29.110
  • It's doing exceedingly, abundantly.
  • 00:03:31.250 --> 00:03:35.170
  • "Oh see, what I don't like about that Mike Freeman,
  • 00:03:39.000 --> 00:03:42.020
  • "he just won't face reality."
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:44.130
  • It all depends on what reality you referring to.
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:47.140
  • Why we look not at the things
  • 00:03:50.120 --> 00:03:53.100
  • which, oh come on.
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:54.160
  • You gotta get this thing up on you!
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:56.230
  • But we look at the things that are.
  • 00:03:59.080 --> 00:04:01.220
  • Man if I could unzip.
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:04.040
  • If I can pull back.
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:06.000
  • If I can expose to you the supernatural arena,
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:09.080
  • all your stuff is already laid up for you.
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:12.250
  • Waiting for the attitude, the spirit of faith
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:16.030
  • that's gonna penetrate the circumstances around you.
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:20.070
  • And you think, watch this.
  • 00:04:20.150 --> 00:04:21.290
  • You think that certain people gotta have
  • 00:04:21.290 --> 00:04:25.000
  • certain things on them the ones that you know.
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:28.010
  • But there are people right now, I prophesy to you,
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:31.050
  • that's looking for you.
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:32.210
  • That's in hot pursuit of you.
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:34.160
  • That God has already ordained
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:37.080
  • and orchestrated for you to come in contact with!
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:41.010
  • But if you start drawing back!
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:43.280
  • Oh you got to get a hold!
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:47.220
  • Look at somebody and say you can't draw back.
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:50.280
  • - [Audience] You can't draw back.
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:04:53.000
  • It ain't about the word impartation here tonight.
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:05:00.170
  • It's about an atmosphere.
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:03.290
  • It's about a spiritual impartation.
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:07.270
  • I gotta get what's up on me up on y'all.
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:11.200
  • Where I don't care how things look.
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:14.090
  • You walking like right now,
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:17.020
  • all my needs are already met.
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:20.070
  • Come on, turn to your neighbor and say
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:21.240
  • you gotta get your swag repaired.
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:24.170
  • I watch it happening in my own life.
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:36.070
  • I watch the thing in my own life.
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:43.140
  • Spirit of God says "Have you considered a new jet?"
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:55.020
  • I said oh yes sir.
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.270
  • Yes amen glory hallelujah.
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:04.110
  • Yes indeedy.
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.090
  • He said, "So what you waiting on?"
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:11.100
  • And I began to impart human reasoning
  • 00:06:15.200 --> 00:06:20.000
  • into the discussion.
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:23.070
  • And I can tell that he was leaning Pastor over
  • 00:06:26.270 --> 00:06:30.070
  • like with a bit of concern.
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.280
  • Oh there you go.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:33.170
  • And I knew I was getting out of my vein.
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:38.030
  • You remember that drivers assistant package
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:41.090
  • that I told you that came with Dr. Dee dee's car?
  • 00:06:41.090 --> 00:06:44.040
  • When you're getting out of your lane
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:46.010
  • the steering wheel will shake
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:47.180
  • and the seat will rumble a little bit.
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:50.040
  • That thing so sophisticated
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:51.260
  • I ain't even know how sophisticated it was.
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:53.280
  • She was kinda, she lost her way somewhere
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:57.250
  • in the six 95 eight 95 area from Baltimore.
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:07:01.250
  • She coming from a place she know.
  • 00:07:01.250 --> 00:07:03.110
  • She had her navigation set.
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:05.270
  • And she was following it,
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:08.140
  • but then when she start to find her way
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:10.130
  • she start taking her own route.
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:12.280
  • Her driving pattern changed.
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:15.170
  • She was not as steady as she was
  • 00:07:15.170 --> 00:07:20.090
  • initially before she found her way.
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:23.080
  • The car noticed that you aren't driving
  • 00:07:23.220 --> 00:07:27.130
  • as the same pace that you've been driving.
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:31.060
  • The car told her that it thought
  • 00:07:32.130 --> 00:07:36.060
  • that she was getting tired.
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:38.270
  • The girl starts speaking and says
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:42.150
  • your driving pattern is changing,
  • 00:07:42.150 --> 00:07:45.150
  • and we suggest that you pull over
  • 00:07:45.150 --> 00:07:46.290
  • and get yourself some rest.
  • 00:07:46.290 --> 00:07:49.120
  • Not only that, but her phone rang,
  • 00:07:51.290 --> 00:07:56.060
  • and it was a text message with the same message
  • 00:07:56.060 --> 00:07:58.250
  • that she just heard from inside her car.
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:02.130
  • Hunch your neighbor and say
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:04.140
  • what kind of car!
  • 00:08:04.140 --> 00:08:06.010
  • But you don't know,
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:10.080
  • God put the same system on the inward part to you.
  • 00:08:10.080 --> 00:08:14.080
  • He knows when you are accelerating in faith.
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:19.010
  • He knows when you are pulling back
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.290
  • and he's trying to get your attention
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:22.160
  • and say something changed!
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:25.010
  • Something ain't!
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:26.150
  • Something changed!
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:27.200
  • You're not as aggressive as you used to be!
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:30.260
  • Awe y'all better come on here tonight.
  • 00:08:31.040 --> 00:08:33.130
  • Hunch your neighbor and say I'm glad I'm here boy!
  • 00:08:37.010 --> 00:08:39.220
  • Something changed.
  • 00:08:42.210 --> 00:08:44.040
  • And I started to pull back.
  • 00:08:45.150 --> 00:08:47.200
  • Hebrews 10 38 says, "For the just shall live by faith.
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:53.050
  • "And he gets no pleasure in those who draw back."
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:59.030
  • Now anytime God gets concerned.
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:03.290
  • If, Sheranna watch this.
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:06.160
  • If a system in the car
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:08.210
  • is concerned about your inconsistency
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:14.030
  • and how you've been driving.
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:16.030
  • And alerts your attention to something may not be right.
  • 00:09:16.030 --> 00:09:19.260
  • How much more Holy Spirit?
  • 00:09:19.260 --> 00:09:23.110
  • Come on let me just take my time here tonight.
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:28.040
  • Cause you've been, you've been kind of
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:31.050
  • wavering in your faith.
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:33.080
  • Sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don't.
  • 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:36.130
  • You've been up and down.
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:38.190
  • You've been back!
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:39.200
  • Today I'm gonna stand!
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:41.000
  • Today I'm not gonna stand!
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:42.120
  • When the offers look good, okay praise the Lord!
  • 00:09:42.120 --> 00:09:44.240
  • When the offers look bad, "Oh what's going on?"
  • 00:09:44.240 --> 00:09:47.200
  • Boy I'm having me a good time all by myself.
  • 00:09:53.060 --> 00:09:56.070
  • I feel a praise break shout.
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:09:58.270
  • I'm trying to help you tonight.
  • 00:10:05.230 --> 00:10:07.190
  • I'm talking about Rachel and attitude of faith.
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:16.100
  • That I don't care what it looks like.
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:19.200
  • It may look like this thing is collapsing and falling apart.
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:23.280
  • It may look like I'm never gonna win.
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:26.180
  • Like the money's not gonna come in.
  • 00:10:26.180 --> 00:10:28.230
  • Like my marriage will never change.
  • 00:10:28.230 --> 00:10:30.270
  • But I've got another spirit that's up on me!
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:34.140
  • That same spirit that Joshua
  • 00:10:34.140 --> 00:10:37.040
  • and Caleb had on them when everybody else said.
  • 00:10:37.040 --> 00:10:41.280
  • (pastor laughs)
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:52.190
  • Glory to God!
  • 00:10:52.190 --> 00:10:54.060
  • You gotta laugh when you don't feel like laughing.
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:57.210
  • You gotta shout when you don't feel like shouting.
  • 00:10:57.210 --> 00:11:00.250
  • Cause you already know, bless God I win!
  • 00:11:00.250 --> 00:11:05.020
  • Come on, somebody shout I win.
  • 00:11:07.120 --> 00:11:09.290
  • - [Audience] I win!
  • 00:11:09.290 --> 00:11:12.110
  • - I'm not exempt from this.

  • And then I got wise you know.
  • 00:12:46.210 --> 00:12:50.060
  • See a lot of believers try to dismiss their fear for wisdom.
  • 00:12:52.080 --> 00:12:57.080
  • Wisdom, wisdom wisdom.
  • 00:12:59.160 --> 00:13:01.260

  • And you trying to blame it on wisdom.

  • Wisdom will say I shouldn't be doing that.
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:08.240
  • And I try to go there.
  • 00:13:10.280 --> 00:13:12.150

  • He said "You ain't gotta buy the thing son."
  • 00:14:18.150 --> 00:14:21.170
  • But look at you.
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.070
  • He said "Boy, when you were back in Anacostia,

  • Are you understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:15:00.260 --> 00:15:03.080
  • You start looking at your money
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:05.240
  • opposed to looking at your faith.
  • 00:15:05.240 --> 00:15:08.250
  • Doesn't look like we can do this.
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:14.020
  • But when you didn't have anything?
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:16.130
  • That's why the Redskins gonna whip the Cowboys.
  • 00:15:19.070 --> 00:15:22.130
  • (crowd cheers)
  • 00:15:22.130 --> 00:15:24.210
  • I might as well put that out in the faith conference.
  • 00:15:26.230 --> 00:15:31.080
  • I lost half of the group.
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:35.050
  • Pastor Wayne getting ready to walk.
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:38.030
  • I got some other Cowboy fan say
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:41.150
  • "I'm outta here, this ain't God!"
  • 00:15:41.150 --> 00:15:43.170
  • You know why?
  • 00:15:46.270 --> 00:15:48.080
  • They ain't gotten, pardon my vernacular,
  • 00:15:49.220 --> 00:15:52.270
  • my best ghetto English.
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.290
  • They ain't got nothing to lose.
  • 00:15:54.290 --> 00:15:57.150
  • They already counted them out.
  • 00:15:58.230 --> 00:16:01.070
  • So if they go out there and lose.
  • 00:16:01.130 --> 00:16:03.240
  • What?
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:06.140
  • So they can go out and try everything!
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:11.130
  • Did you see em Sunday?
  • 00:16:12.000 --> 00:16:13.220
  • Flea flickers, all kinds of audibles.
  • 00:16:13.220 --> 00:16:17.000
  • All kinds of stuff that they putting in the game
  • 00:16:17.000 --> 00:16:20.040
  • because everybody already done counted them out!
  • 00:16:20.040 --> 00:16:23.190
  • So if they drop a ball,
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:25.080
  • if this play doesn't go right, well so what?!
  • 00:16:25.080 --> 00:16:28.250
  • Come on you missing.
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:32.130
  • You think I'm talking about Cowboys and Indians.
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:35.200
  • I'm talking about you and your faith!
  • 00:16:35.200 --> 00:16:38.150
  • And what happens with most teams that get a little lead?
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:48.120
  • They start playing not to lose.
  • 00:16:50.180 --> 00:16:53.250
  • They don't play to win.
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:58.230
  • They just want to protect their lead,
  • 00:16:58.230 --> 00:17:01.150
  • and they play not to lose.
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:05.060
  • Now you gotta see the difference in that!
  • 00:17:05.090 --> 00:17:07.170
  • Cause when you get a little lead,
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:10.240
  • you start becoming comfortable in what you have.
  • 00:17:10.240 --> 00:17:14.290
  • And you're not as aggressive as you were
  • 00:17:15.030 --> 00:17:18.000
  • when you didn't have it.
  • 00:17:18.000 --> 00:17:19.290
  • But I'm telling you the same thing!
  • 00:17:19.290 --> 00:17:22.260
  • Shh!
  • 00:17:24.090 --> 00:17:25.230
  • I sense a spirit of faith being released in this atmosphere.
  • 00:17:37.060 --> 00:17:42.060
  • Turn to somebody and say I'm a go home
  • 00:17:43.220 --> 00:17:45.180
  • and try something tonight!
  • 00:17:45.180 --> 00:17:47.260
  • Shout glory to God somebody!
  • 00:17:50.200 --> 00:17:52.240
  • - [Audience] Glory to God!
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:54.210
  • Conrad the attitude to maintain a lead
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:04.170
  • is different from and added to the plan to win.
  • 00:18:05.280 --> 00:18:10.090
  • Are you understand what I'm telling you?
  • 00:18:12.030 --> 00:18:14.180
  • Now if I go out here and get this jet.
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:17.240
  • Hey you know man, what the economy is saying.
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:22.250

  • I got 107 plus employees that I gotta look out for.
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:32.020

  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:36.260
  • all the stuff that you want to protect.
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:39.250
  • Opposed to going and stepping out
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:42.060
  • in faith like you once were.
  • 00:18:42.060 --> 00:18:44.260
  • Anacostia high school,
  • 00:18:45.220 --> 00:18:47.020
  • they didn't think that
  • 00:18:47.020 --> 00:18:48.090
  • Mike Freeman Ministry was anything anyway.
  • 00:18:48.090 --> 00:18:50.100
  • So what, I'll go out and speak to a building.
  • 00:18:50.100 --> 00:18:53.130
  • I ain't got nothing to lose.
  • 00:18:54.240 --> 00:18:56.210
  • Building!
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:58.080
  • Let me tell you Pastor something.
  • 00:18:58.100 --> 00:18:59.270
  • Get your stuff ready.
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.110
  • God has already told me there are gonna be
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:03.200
  • buildings that already are clearing out.
  • 00:19:03.200 --> 00:19:06.280
  • They're vacant buildings laying all around.
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:09.240
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:19:09.240 --> 00:19:11.090
  • It's gonna be too much for this grid to handle.
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:14.210
  • It's gonna be too many property.
  • 00:19:14.210 --> 00:19:16.170
  • And it's only going to be given to those
  • 00:19:16.170 --> 00:19:19.110
  • who prepare themselves.

  • Deal me in!
  • 00:19:37.040 --> 00:19:38.200
  • Turn to your neighbor and say that's my Pastor.

  • I said deal me in.

  • Then I told him put $100.000 in escrow.
  • 00:19:51.090 --> 00:19:54.040
  • I asked her, I said Captain Ingle,
