  • Are you sitting down?
  • 00:00:02.140 --> 00:00:04.000
  • Spending time with her in the word?
  • 00:00:04.020 --> 00:00:06.240
  • And flipping pages?
  • 00:00:06.290 --> 00:00:09.000
  • Ephesians 5 says your duty is to wash her with the word.
  • 00:00:10.010 --> 00:00:15.010
  • And if you're not sitting down
  • 00:00:16.270 --> 00:00:19.010
  • and washing her with the word,
  • 00:00:19.010 --> 00:00:21.130
  • you're not fulfilling the role of husband in her life.
  • 00:00:21.250 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • (applause)
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:03.000
  • You are covered.
  • 00:01:03.290 --> 00:01:05.200
  • - [Dr. Freeman] To God be the glory.
  • 00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:07.140
  • - [Dr.Grazette] You are covered.
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:09.070
  • What I like about them.
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:14.050
  • I like their realness.
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:15.050
  • They're real.
  • 00:01:15.050 --> 00:01:16.220
  • I like their realness.
  • 00:01:16.240 --> 00:01:18.120
  • But they're not flim-flam.
  • 00:01:19.050 --> 00:01:20.260
  • They are powerful people of God.
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:23.190
  • and just this anointing came over me
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:30.140
  • and I started praying.
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:31.290
  • Just started praying in tongues.
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:33.200
  • And just these words started coming to me.
  • 00:01:33.220 --> 00:01:36.140
  • I can get off course 'cause I like to talk.
  • 00:01:36.190 --> 00:01:39.100
  • Right Camilla?
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:40.230
  • They tell me I like to talk.
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:42.160
  • Talk too much.
  • 00:01:42.180 --> 00:01:44.020
  • But I still need to write this down,
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:45.230
  • because if i don't write it down I'm going to forget.
  • 00:01:45.230 --> 00:01:47.220
  • - [Dr. Freeman] I love this word.
  • 00:01:48.290 --> 00:01:50.250
  • - And it says at the beginning of a great move of God,
  • 00:01:51.050 --> 00:01:55.200
  • we are witnessing today the beginning,
  • 00:01:55.200 --> 00:01:57.250
  • the genesis of a great move of God in this area.
  • 00:01:58.170 --> 00:02:01.070
  • And around the world.
  • 00:02:01.230 --> 00:02:03.180
  • Because they're going to see this.
  • 00:02:03.240 --> 00:02:05.150
  • This is the beginning, and this the first fruits
  • 00:02:05.150 --> 00:02:08.250
  • of what will occur in this ministry.
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:11.000
  • This couple has passed the test
  • 00:02:12.170 --> 00:02:14.150
  • of demonstrated faith.
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:16.070
  • Not faith in words.
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:19.030
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:20.050
  • - Not faith in thoughts.
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:21.240
  • Not faith in wishes.
  • 00:02:21.270 --> 00:02:23.150
  • Demonstrated faith in which one...
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:28.090
  • You know, this body, because before God is one body.
  • 00:02:29.040 --> 00:02:33.010
  • Half of this body was going to be in the ground.
  • 00:02:33.050 --> 00:02:35.160
  • The other half refused to have it so.
  • 00:02:36.190 --> 00:02:41.190
  • And decided to put on a spiritual onslaught.
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:47.140
  • And they won.
  • 00:02:47.200 --> 00:02:49.020
  • And the word today, the word that God has given me,
  • 00:02:49.040 --> 00:02:51.250
  • I just wrote it out.
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:54.130
  • "Tell the people to persist in your declaration.
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:58.170
  • "Do not be afraid.
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:01.160
  • "Do not murmur.
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:03.270
  • "I am about to break forth.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:06.120
  • "Only believe."
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:09.130
  • (audience clapping and cheering)
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:12.030
  • The scripture that came to me was Isaiah.
  • 00:03:12.030 --> 00:03:14.170
  • Part of it, "I have put my word in thy mouth
  • 00:03:15.060 --> 00:03:18.190
  • "and covered thee with the shadow of mine hand
  • 00:03:19.060 --> 00:03:22.060
  • "that I may plant the heavens."
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:24.070
  • I am blessed to be a part of what is happening.
  • 00:03:28.090 --> 00:03:32.250
  • I am absolutely blessed and honored
  • 00:03:33.140 --> 00:03:36.120
  • and humbled to be a part of this ministry.
  • 00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:38.140
  • To see what God is doing.
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:41.240
  • And especially from the beginning,
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:44.090
  • because we talk about faith.
  • 00:03:44.230 --> 00:03:46.200
  • We talk about faith.
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:48.200
  • - We talked about faith.
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:51.070
  • - And it sounds nice.
  • 00:03:51.070 --> 00:03:54.020
  • When you talk about faith, it is a great sound.
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:57.170
  • It can get people jumping.
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:03:59.160
  • But I'm telling you, when you go through faith,
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:01.280
  • is the demonstration.
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:06.070
  • And the Bible says faith without works is dead.
  • 00:04:06.150 --> 00:04:09.250
  • You show me your faith by doing nothing.
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:12.130
  • I'm gonna show you my faith by rising back up.
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:17.180
  • - Come on.
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:18.290
  • - That is demonstrated faith.
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:20.210
  • You can't deny that.
  • 00:04:21.000 --> 00:04:22.210
  • And the naysayers...
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:25.260
  • The thing about this that really...
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:29.160
  • Even when I'm talking to my wife.
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:32.150
  • Unfortunately, my wife is not here.
  • 00:04:32.170 --> 00:04:34.150
  • She had surgery and then got over that
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.110
  • and then sprained her ankle.
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:38.010
  • But my beautiful wife is not here today,
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:40.280
  • When we are talking, 'cause I'm always
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:43.270
  • excited about what is going on in the Kingdom of Heaven.
  • 00:04:43.270 --> 00:04:47.190
  • And Camilla knows.
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:49.180
  • This is me all the time.
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:52.120
  • - [Dr.Freeman] All the time.
  • 00:04:52.120 --> 00:04:53.180
  • - This is just me all the time.
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:54.270
  • - [Dr.Freeman] And I enjoyed seeing him
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:56.210
  • come into my room to examine
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:59.060
  • and to evaluate and to minister.
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:01.200
  • How many of y'all would love to just have
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:03.260
  • a doctor come in like this?
  • 00:05:03.260 --> 00:05:05.250
  • (audience murmurs agreement)
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.260
  • - This is just me all the time.
  • 00:05:08.030 --> 00:05:09.150
  • What excites me about this is,
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:15.000
  • and I just lost my train of thought.
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.260
  • - [Dr. Freeman] Oh, I apologize.
  • 00:05:19.260 --> 00:05:21.170
  • You was talking about your wife.
  • 00:05:21.220 --> 00:05:24.050
  • You always talk to her about being excited.
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:27.080
  • You talking about Camilla always being excited.
  • 00:05:27.160 --> 00:05:31.170
  • - Yeah, what I'm excited to witness
  • 00:05:32.000 --> 00:05:36.180
  • is the enemy in attacking this couple
  • 00:05:36.280 --> 00:05:41.280
  • and the infrastructure of this ministry.
  • 00:05:42.290 --> 00:05:44.230
  • It was not necessarily about Pastor Freeman.
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:49.180
  • It was what God has called Pastor Freeman
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:53.220
  • to build in this earth.
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:55.110
  • He planted him and the seed is growing.
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:58.220
  • It is to destroy your faith.
  • 00:05:59.130 --> 00:06:01.050
  • Because if he was able to take you out,
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:06.170
  • I'm telling you, the reality is a lot
  • 00:06:07.260 --> 00:06:10.100
  • of us would be thinking differently.
  • 00:06:10.100 --> 00:06:13.010
  • You will hear faith a little differently now.
  • 00:06:13.030 --> 00:06:14.170
  • It will pull you back.
  • 00:06:14.170 --> 00:06:16.130
  • - [Dr. Freeman] That's the truth.
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:17.240
  • - You wouldn't be pulled anymore.
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.010
  • - 'Cause he could use against them what
  • 00:06:19.010 --> 00:06:24.010
  • I went through if I didn't make it.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:26.090
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:27.060
  • - Well you believe in them.
  • 00:06:27.060 --> 00:06:28.040
  • Pastor Freeman say he believe.
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:29.150
  • And you gotta be so what?
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:33.190
  • But it's difficult when it's concerning
  • 00:06:34.180 --> 00:06:39.120
  • the one who taught faith.
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:41.140
  • - Yes, from the leadership.
  • 00:06:41.230 --> 00:06:43.080
  • - He been talking all this stuff about faith
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:44.170
  • and the devil takes him out at that early age.
  • 00:06:44.170 --> 00:06:47.130
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:48.260
  • Exactly.
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:50.090
  • - That's real talk.
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:51.220
  • - It is.
  • 00:06:51.220 --> 00:06:52.090
  • It is.
  • 00:06:52.090 --> 00:06:53.250
  • - But now, because he hasn't taken me out,
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:55.290
  • you can use it against him.
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:58.280
  • - Amen.
  • 00:06:59.030 --> 00:07:00.140
  • (audience cheering and clapping)
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.050
  • - [Dr. Freeman] Come on, somebody.
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:03.260
  • - Amen.
  • 00:07:03.280 --> 00:07:05.060
  • - But now Doctor, you decreed and declared.
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:06.240
  • I can't leave here, and I can't let you leave,
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:09.070
  • without decreeing and declaring
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:12.070
  • what you spoke over the congregation
  • 00:07:12.190 --> 00:07:15.260
  • in last night's service.
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:19.220
  • Because he's been with me this weekend.
  • 00:07:19.250 --> 00:07:22.020
  • Last night's service, this morning, and here.
  • 00:07:22.070 --> 00:07:25.010
  • And now we're getting ready
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:26.070
  • to go back to 11 o'clock service.
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:27.150
  • And I do appreciate you for that.
  • 00:07:27.150 --> 00:07:29.230
  • - It's an honor, sir.
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:31.080
  • - But take the liberty to decree and declare
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:35.240
  • what God has placed in your heart.
  • 00:07:36.290 --> 00:07:39.040
  • - You know, God is about to break forth
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:43.240
  • I believe, upon this ministry.
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:47.220
  • And everyone that's sitting here within
  • 00:07:48.170 --> 00:07:50.170
  • the sound of my voice and the sound
  • 00:07:50.170 --> 00:07:51.280
  • of this couple's teaching...
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:54.280
  • - [Dr. Freeman] Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:57.000
  • - Listen to what is being taught.
  • 00:07:57.000 --> 00:08:00.020
  • Take it to heart.
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:03.000
  • Know your word.
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:04.170
  • You're in a word church.
  • 00:08:06.030 --> 00:08:07.160
  • Get into the word of the almighty God.
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:09.260
  • And I declare in the name of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:13.030
  • I declare that the hand of God will shadow thee.
  • 00:08:13.240 --> 00:08:17.220
  • In the name of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:19.270
  • that he will put his word in your mouth
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:22.170
  • as he continues to plant the heavens and the earth
  • 00:08:22.200 --> 00:08:26.210
  • through you under the leadership and under
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:29.040
  • the ministry of these two great people.
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:31.230
  • (speaking in tongues)
  • 00:08:32.170 --> 00:08:37.170
  • I am thy God.
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:11.000
  • Follow ye him as he follows me
  • 00:09:19.110 --> 00:09:21.140
  • sayeth the lamb of the living God.
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:23.150
  • And I will prosper you as you obey
  • 00:09:23.170 --> 00:09:26.170
  • and as you walk in obedience to the words
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:29.270
  • that I have given through my servants.
  • 00:09:29.270 --> 00:09:32.050
  • Follow ye him.
  • 00:09:32.160 --> 00:09:34.160
  • - Glory to God.
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:38.170
  • - In the name of Jesus, hallelujah.
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:39.120
  • - I receive that.
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:40.290
  • - Hallelujah (speaks in tongues).
  • 00:09:41.010 --> 00:09:43.030
  • - Come on, somebody.
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:46.110
  • I am especially grateful to God because you...
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:55.120
  • I've just been taught and trained
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:02.150
  • that one act of kindness deserves another.
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:06.000
  • And this man and his staff...
  • 00:10:07.110 --> 00:10:10.030
  • I haven't seen anything like them before.
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:15.240
  • Camilla even prepared me lunch
  • 00:10:18.000 --> 00:10:23.000
  • after my therapy.
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:25.030
  • After she whipped me so bad.
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:27.070
  • She laid out the table and a towel
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:34.050
  • and coconut water and...
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:37.000
  • I love salmon.
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:40.120
  • She gave me broccoli and some other
  • 00:10:40.280 --> 00:10:45.120
  • mean green thing she put together.
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:48.060
  • It was so delicious.
  • 00:10:48.090 --> 00:10:49.270
  • Where do you go and get care like that?
  • 00:10:50.020 --> 00:10:52.080
  • And so, I personally feel indebted to you
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:58.080
  • and what you have done.
  • 00:10:58.100 --> 00:11:00.080
  • And God has given me the opportunity
  • 00:11:00.260 --> 00:11:05.160
  • to now serve you as your man of God.
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:09.070
  • Whereas, as much as I needed you,
  • 00:11:13.100 --> 00:11:16.230
  • God knew that you needed me.
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:19.190
  • And I can give back to you through this pastoral capacity.
  • 00:11:21.050 --> 00:11:25.210
  • And pouring into your life and
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:29.200
  • your family's life what God has poured into me.
  • 00:11:29.230 --> 00:11:33.150
  • - Thank you, Pastor.
  • 00:11:34.180 --> 00:11:38.160
  • My wife and I, we were praying for a home church.
  • 00:11:38.160 --> 00:11:41.170
  • 'Cause we had just come out of another church.
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:44.180
  • And I'm the kind of person that it's very
  • 00:11:44.270 --> 00:11:48.100
  • difficult for me to go to church just because it's Sunday.
  • 00:11:48.140 --> 00:11:51.010
  • That's just my nature.
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.260
  • I got saved not in a church.
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:56.040
  • Because God knows I wouldn't have gone to the church.
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:12:01.060
  • So I wouldn't have gotten saved in a church.
  • 00:12:02.050 --> 00:12:04.030
  • And it's difficult for me just
  • 00:12:04.240 --> 00:12:07.080
  • to go because it's Sunday.
  • 00:12:07.080 --> 00:12:09.030
  • I have to be in a place where
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:13.020
  • the word is the there, the demonstrated power of God--
  • 00:12:16.140 --> 00:12:20.200
  • - The demonstration is there.
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.120
  • - Yes, sir.
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:24.000
  • And the leader.
  • 00:12:24.000 --> 00:12:25.290
  • There has to be a leader.
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:27.130
  • Has to be a leader.
  • 00:12:27.190 --> 00:12:29.100
  • All of mankind.
  • 00:12:29.100 --> 00:12:30.280
  • All of the animal kingdom.
  • 00:12:31.000 --> 00:12:32.250
  • Everything is set up on leadership.
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:35.220
  • The whole organism.
  • 00:12:36.160 --> 00:12:37.190
  • The way God created us.
  • 00:12:37.190 --> 00:12:38.200
  • Is set up on leadership.
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:40.080
  • Your body, the whole organism,
  • 00:12:40.080 --> 00:12:41.280
  • is set up on a principle of leadership.
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:44.010
  • - [Dr. Freeman] Wow.
  • 00:12:44.140 --> 00:12:45.080
  • - It is amazing.
  • 00:12:45.080 --> 00:12:46.150
  • It is so much so that if this organism
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:49.000
  • gets into external trouble, every cell and system
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:54.210
  • binds together to protect the organism, the head.
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:02.090
  • There are some tissues that would sacrifice
  • 00:13:03.110 --> 00:13:06.050
  • themselves that the head would live.
  • 00:13:06.050 --> 00:13:08.210
  • That is how this organism is set up.
  • 00:13:09.070 --> 00:13:11.050
  • It is absolutely amazing.
  • 00:13:11.230 --> 00:13:14.020
  • You have in this organism, this body,
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:17.260
  • you have stuff that would kill you.
  • 00:13:18.230 --> 00:13:21.260
  • And you have the counteractions of other
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:26.200
  • enzymes that will temper it down.
  • 00:13:26.200 --> 00:13:28.290
  • To keep it in balance.
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:31.050
  • It's all about balance.
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:32.290
  • And anything that comes into this body.
  • 00:13:33.030 --> 00:13:35.080
  • This organization of the body,
  • 00:13:35.100 --> 00:13:38.030
  • to cause a dis ease, which we call disease,
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:41.290
  • once you get that disease, there are systems
  • 00:13:42.260 --> 00:13:47.260
  • in place to detect and to eliminate
  • 00:13:48.250 --> 00:13:51.290
  • it from that organism.
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:54.070
  • You know?
  • 00:13:55.290 --> 00:13:56.200
  • To eliminate it.
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:57.180
  • That's how we are set up.
  • 00:13:57.180 --> 00:13:59.170
  • And so leadership is protect your leader.
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:04.230
  • Protect your leaders.
  • 00:14:07.050 --> 00:14:08.230
  • I'm telling you, this is emotional for me.
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:13.060
  • It is emotional for me because God loved me.
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:17.250
  • I prayed for a year, my wife and I,
  • 00:14:18.060 --> 00:14:21.140
  • looking for a leader to follow.
  • 00:14:21.140 --> 00:14:24.100
  • And I am blessed and I am grateful
  • 00:14:25.110 --> 00:14:29.090
  • that God has led me to you.
  • 00:14:29.090 --> 00:14:32.100
  • You guys are very blessed to have
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:37.290
  • these two people leading you.
  • 00:14:37.290 --> 00:14:40.070
  • (applause)
  • 00:14:40.140 --> 00:14:43.260
  • You are covered.
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:46.160
  • - [Dr. Freeman] To God be the glory.
  • 00:14:47.040 --> 00:14:48.100
  • - [Dr.Grazette] You are covered.
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:50.030
  • What I like about them.
  • 00:14:53.200 --> 00:14:55.010
  • I like their realness.
  • 00:14:55.010 --> 00:14:56.010
  • They're real.
  • 00:14:56.010 --> 00:14:57.180
  • I like their realness.
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:14:59.080
  • But they're not flim-flam.
  • 00:15:00.030 --> 00:15:01.240
  • They are powerful people of God.
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:04.170
  • When you have people of God,
  • 00:15:07.070 --> 00:15:09.030
  • when you have leaders that can demonstrate
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:12.100
  • the swinging of the sword,
  • 00:15:12.100 --> 00:15:14.070
  • that is not to be taken lightly.
  • 00:15:17.090 --> 00:15:19.030
  • And I'm telling you, if any of you, any of us,
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:23.280
  • if you have any personal issues with your leaders,
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:29.070
  • go to God and let it go.
  • 00:15:30.040 --> 00:15:31.260
  • Because it will destroy you.
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:33.220
  • God does not take lightly.
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:36.160
  • Touch not mine anointed.
  • 00:15:37.120 --> 00:15:39.040
  • Doesn't take it lightly at all.
  • 00:15:39.090 --> 00:15:41.150
  • - [Dr.Freeman] Wow.
  • 00:15:41.250 --> 00:15:43.080
  • - If you are praying and you're not seeing any results,
  • 00:15:43.080 --> 00:15:47.240
  • if one of the things in your heart
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:51.120
  • is something against your leader...
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:53.180
  • Leadership is important.
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:56.050
  • And God doesn't take things out
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:15:58.200
  • when you get out of order.
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:00.150
  • It doesn't have to be in the open.
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:02.090
  • It's all about this.
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.150
  • It's all about this.
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:06.100
  • It's what is inside of here.
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:07.110
  • That's what God sees.
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:09.060
  • You could flim it or you could flam it,
  • 00:16:09.090 --> 00:16:11.040
  • but what God responds to is this.
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:13.190
  • And if it is in there, I advise you to get rid of it.
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:19.120
  • You are fortunate to have leaders that cover you.
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:23.190
  • I'm telling you, they cover you.
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:25.210
  • The year of realized dreams.
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.180
  • They cover you in their prayer.
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:29.180
  • Because everything they do, and whichever
  • 00:16:29.200 --> 00:16:31.230
  • way they walk, it is about you.
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:35.010
  • Because God sets up leaders to lead his people.
  • 00:16:35.040 --> 00:16:37.270
  • To lead his people.
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:40.230
  • And you need to really, really
  • 00:16:41.020 --> 00:16:44.160
  • be on board with your leaders.
  • 00:16:44.180 --> 00:16:46.220
  • I am just blown away by the level
  • 00:16:47.190 --> 00:16:52.190
  • of fight that they have.
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:55.220
  • To see him come through what he came through.
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:17:01.150
  • It was not...
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:03.060
  • I'm telling you, I've seen a lot.
  • 00:17:03.060 --> 00:17:05.100
  • I have seen a lot.
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:07.180
  • I've seen people come through,
  • 00:17:07.210 --> 00:17:09.160
  • and they're "alive."
  • 00:17:09.190 --> 00:17:11.130
  • If you want to call it living.
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:13.210
  • But with what he went through
  • 00:17:15.010 --> 00:17:17.240
  • to be sitting here, and the schedule you keep.
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:22.240
  • I observed this man since yesterday.
  • 00:17:25.140 --> 00:17:28.030
  • Just observing how he's breathing, how he's walking--
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:31.170
  • - Yeah, I can't stand that part.
  • 00:17:31.190 --> 00:17:33.150
  • I know he's looking like...
  • 00:17:34.020 --> 00:17:35.260
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:37.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:38.110
  • - That's the part I can't stand.
  • 00:17:38.110 --> 00:17:39.180
  • - I'm telling you--
  • 00:17:39.180 --> 00:17:40.150
  • - 'Cause I can't fake him.
  • 00:17:40.150 --> 00:17:41.170
  • (laughs)
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:42.230
  • And I know Camilla's looking like...okay.
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:45.160
  • 'Cause they get me.
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:46.260
  • - This man is healed.
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:48.100
  • - But my job, I'm telling you,
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:51.140
  • when you cast your cares and let God fight for you,
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:56.140
  • I'm telling you this rest that you enter
  • 00:17:56.270 --> 00:17:59.020
  • into will preserve your life.
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:02.070
  • There's a grace for what I do.
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:04.230
  • And I got to tell you this,
  • 00:18:07.250 --> 00:18:09.040
  • and we got to get out of here.
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:10.280
  • Two things, actually.
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:12.190
  • I want you to commend them
  • 00:18:12.190 --> 00:18:16.010
  • and what you shared this morning.
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:19.130
  • Okay, you remember that?
  • 00:18:20.050 --> 00:18:21.160
  • - Yes.
  • 00:18:21.160 --> 00:18:22.050
  • - Ok good.
  • 00:18:22.050 --> 00:18:23.110
  • - Level of service.
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:24.250
  • Oh my gosh.
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:26.120
  • - Okay, so hold that.
  • 00:18:26.120 --> 00:18:28.040
  • (laughs)
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:29.090
  • And I can't stand your laugh.
  • 00:18:31.010 --> 00:18:32.260
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:34.150
  • It's so good.
  • 00:18:34.150 --> 00:18:35.220
  • I envy it so much.
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:37.290
  • I was telling you, it's swag in that laugh.
  • 00:18:39.110 --> 00:18:42.100
  • (imitates laugh)
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:45.180
  • I was telling you about letting things upset me.
  • 00:18:49.210 --> 00:18:54.000
  • How I would let things upset me.
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:56.260
  • In particularly, I was discussing Dr.Dee Dee.
  • 00:18:57.000 --> 00:18:59.290
  • I used to come here.
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:02.080
  • Almost like, boast about her getting on my nerves.
  • 00:19:02.100 --> 00:19:07.100
  • To a degree that that's typical in most
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:12.220
  • relationships, that my wife get on my nerves.
  • 00:19:12.220 --> 00:19:15.130
  • And when I start really evaluating the thing,
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:20.150
  • I discovered that that is so immature.
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:25.130
  • For someone to get on your nerves or upset you,
  • 00:19:28.070 --> 00:19:32.090
  • it is such a conveyance of pride on your behalf.
  • 00:19:33.090 --> 00:19:37.130
  • Because pride says, "Who do you think
  • 00:19:38.090 --> 00:19:40.240
  • "you are to treat me that way?"
  • 00:19:40.240 --> 00:19:43.230
  • And there are two things that we know
  • 00:19:46.070 --> 00:19:48.000
  • from scripture that belong to God.
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:50.000
  • The tithe and vengeance.
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:52.180
  • He said, "Vengeance is mine," says the Lord.
  • 00:19:53.120 --> 00:19:56.160
  • For you to take vengeance is literally
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:59.210
  • to try to take the place of God and go back
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:03.060
  • and be offended at someone who's done
  • 00:20:03.060 --> 00:20:06.010
  • something to you because of the pride you walk in.
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:09.290
  • And I noticed that my getting upset and letting her
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:15.150
  • get on my nerves was all about my immaturity.
  • 00:20:15.150 --> 00:20:19.070
  • It's what you have in you that can derail
  • 00:20:21.040 --> 00:20:26.040
  • whatever someone presents to you.
  • 00:20:26.280 --> 00:20:29.020
  • And so, when you tell someone they get on your nerve
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:32.070
  • or you make me upset, you just say,
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:34.080
  • "I'm immature."
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:35.280
  • So I've come to this new place.
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:38.020
  • 'Cause Camilla will tell you.
  • 00:20:39.140 --> 00:20:40.290
  • This girl had...
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:43.250
  • And I'ma tell you that my stress levels
  • 00:20:43.250 --> 00:20:45.140
  • are just nonexistent.
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:49.140
  • She put two cuffs on me.
  • 00:20:51.060 --> 00:20:53.080
  • Had two machines taking my blood pressure Friday
  • 00:20:53.180 --> 00:20:56.160
  • and she said, "Ooh, Pastor.
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:20:57.250
  • "You're blood pressures 122/78."
  • 00:20:57.250 --> 00:21:00.250
  • She said, "Your heart rate is 61."
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:07.210
  • She was telling Doc that.
  • 00:21:08.170 --> 00:21:10.040
  • You know, they're just going over my numbers.
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:12.000
  • He said, "That's an athlete's heart."
  • 00:21:12.030 --> 00:21:14.100
  • I said, "I do what I do."
  • 00:21:14.250 --> 00:21:16.220
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.260
  • I do what I do, you know I'm saying?
  • 00:21:18.260 --> 00:21:20.210
  • But you know in part what that's all about?
  • 00:21:24.110 --> 00:21:27.010
  • I refused to be upset.
  • 00:21:27.190 --> 00:21:29.240
  • And you will preserve your life by growing up.
  • 00:21:31.240 --> 00:21:34.090
  • Dr.Dee Dee and I, we don't go through, we grow through.
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:37.130
  • Are you hearing?
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:40.260
  • That will tweet.
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:42.100
  • Are you hearing what I'm telling you?
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:44.020
  • And life will no longer be the same for you.
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:47.070
  • I'm on this kick now.
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:50.150
  • I'm just...she started me on all this vegetable stuff
  • 00:21:50.150 --> 00:21:53.070
  • and she's showing me how to do this.
  • 00:21:53.070 --> 00:21:55.280
  • It's just a whole life thing.
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:57.150
  • So now I've been juic...
  • 00:21:57.150 --> 00:21:59.250
  • She said, "Okay, I know they told you to gain
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:03.200
  • "your weight back but...
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:05.250
  • "It's time to stop now, big boy."
  • 00:22:07.200 --> 00:22:10.040
  • And we were introduced to a whole
  • 00:22:12.190 --> 00:22:14.160
  • different kind of venue.
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:16.110
  • So she's made the switch because now I'm her pastor.
  • 00:22:16.280 --> 00:22:21.080
  • And she just says what she wants
  • 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:23.070
  • to say respectfully now.
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:25.070
  • She still says it.
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:26.260
  • She says, "You just back up."
  • 00:22:28.200 --> 00:22:30.150
  • 'Cause I was on a very high caloric intake.
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:33.240
  • The drinks I was drinking were 400 calories a pop.
  • 00:22:35.000 --> 00:22:38.140
  • And they wanted to make sure
  • 00:22:39.090 --> 00:22:40.140
  • I had at least three of those a day.
  • 00:22:40.140 --> 00:22:42.160
  • So I was just knocking them back.
  • 00:22:43.090 --> 00:22:45.040
  • Give me another one!
  • 00:22:45.270 --> 00:22:47.170
  • They said, "Pastor, you eat whatever you want to eat."
  • 00:22:47.270 --> 00:22:50.080
  • I said, "Did you hear that Dee Dee?"
  • 00:22:50.160 --> 00:22:52.210
  • I had pizzas delivered to the room.
  • 00:22:52.230 --> 00:22:54.280
  • I mean, I was livin' it up.
  • 00:22:55.260 --> 00:22:57.110
  • I had Red Lobster in the hospital.
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:22:59.150
  • Ice cream delivered.
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:02.170
  • Somebody delivered ice cream.
  • 00:23:02.230 --> 00:23:04.230
  • I get all the nurses.
  • 00:23:05.230 --> 00:23:06.290
  • Come to my room!
  • 00:23:06.290 --> 00:23:08.010
  • We got ice cream!
  • 00:23:08.010 --> 00:23:09.290
  • So now I just know this.
  • 00:23:12.140 --> 00:23:14.060
  • I been home and I been real out of control.
  • 00:23:14.090 --> 00:23:19.090
  • You should join me.
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:21.260
  • No, you really should.
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:23.070
  • I don't know how long no meat, no sweets,
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:26.050
  • no chocolate, no soda, no cake, no...
  • 00:23:26.100 --> 00:23:29.060
  • I don't know how long I'm gonna do it.
  • 00:23:29.210 --> 00:23:31.140
  • This would be a good time to join me.
  • 00:23:32.150 --> 00:23:34.090
  • Some of y'all going, "What?"
  • 00:23:35.020 --> 00:23:38.280
  • We gotta close.
  • 00:23:39.000 --> 00:23:40.130
  • So Doc, share with them in closing what you said.
  • 00:23:40.130 --> 00:23:44.200
  • I think it would be a blessing for them to hear.
  • 00:23:45.090 --> 00:23:47.220
  • Especially coming from someone
  • 00:23:47.270 --> 00:23:49.190
  • who's just being a part...
  • 00:23:49.190 --> 00:23:51.240
  • Because you can become so acquainted
  • 00:23:51.270 --> 00:23:53.160
  • with anything that it loses
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:56.140
  • the same kind of impact it once had.
  • 00:23:56.140 --> 00:23:58.240
  • - I am impressed at the service in this ministry.
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:03.160
  • I am impressed with your leadership.
  • 00:24:04.170 --> 00:24:06.100
  • Your leadership team.
  • 00:24:06.130 --> 00:24:08.130
  • The ushers, when you come in from
  • 00:24:08.150 --> 00:24:10.190
  • the moment you pull up.
  • 00:24:10.190 --> 00:24:12.040
  • And it's just a level of excellence.
  • 00:24:12.040 --> 00:24:15.040
  • I was telling him my look.
  • 00:24:16.100 --> 00:24:17.220
  • Because I look around and I observe everything.
  • 00:24:17.220 --> 00:24:20.030
  • I look in the bathrooms.
  • 00:24:20.050 --> 00:24:21.260
  • Somebody has to keep that bathroom like that.
  • 00:24:21.280 --> 00:24:23.030
  • It doesn't keep itself like that.
  • 00:24:23.030 --> 00:24:24.280
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:24:25.050 --> 00:24:25.290
  • So somebody's doing it.
  • 00:24:25.290 --> 00:24:27.190
  • The level of detail.
  • 00:24:27.230 --> 00:24:30.030
  • There's always paper.
  • 00:24:32.150 --> 00:24:34.050
  • Small things.
  • 00:24:34.050 --> 00:24:35.050
  • There is always toilet paper.
  • 00:24:36.220 --> 00:24:38.170
  • There is always soap.
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:40.160
  • - [Dr.Freeman] How many of y'all know
  • 00:24:40.160 --> 00:24:41.200
  • toilet paper is the will of Jehovah?
  • 00:24:41.200 --> 00:24:43.220
  • (laughing)
  • 00:24:44.030 --> 00:24:46.220
  • Need that paper.
  • 00:24:47.180 --> 00:24:49.030
  • - It just goes to show, whatever you do,
  • 00:24:49.030 --> 00:24:52.260
  • if you do it with excellence,
  • 00:24:53.070 --> 00:24:55.180
  • it will rise and it will always float up to the top.
  • 00:24:56.120 --> 00:24:59.100
  • And that is evident in this ministry.
  • 00:25:00.080 --> 00:25:02.110
  • I have been to a lot of places.
  • 00:25:02.290 --> 00:25:04.170
  • I have been to...you know, if you want
  • 00:25:04.190 --> 00:25:07.170
  • this level of service you go to the Ritz-Carlton.
  • 00:25:07.170 --> 00:25:10.000
  • And the way people carry themselves and move...
  • 00:25:10.280 --> 00:25:15.070
  • I'm absolutely impressed.
  • 00:25:15.090 --> 00:25:17.280
  • - [Dr. Freeman] And to express a man of your caliber,
  • 00:25:19.080 --> 00:25:21.230
  • what you are exposed to,
  • 00:25:21.230 --> 00:25:23.170
  • that says a lot about this church.
  • 00:25:23.290 --> 00:25:25.260
  • - [Dr.Grazette] You know, if my wife was here,
  • 00:25:25.280 --> 00:25:26.220
  • she would tell you.
  • 00:25:26.220 --> 00:25:28.040
  • If my wife was here, she would tell you that's hard.
  • 00:25:28.040 --> 00:25:30.110
  • Because I very seldom pay a full
  • 00:25:30.150 --> 00:25:32.010
  • bill when I go to a hotel.
  • 00:25:32.010 --> 00:25:33.190
  • Very seldom do I pay my bill in full.
  • 00:25:33.290 --> 00:25:36.070
  • Because if what you advertise is not what I get,
  • 00:25:36.240 --> 00:25:41.240
  • then you have to take it off of the top.
  • 00:25:42.290 --> 00:25:45.020
  • But somebody got me.
  • 00:25:46.290 --> 00:25:48.080
  • I went to New York and the hotel was...
  • 00:25:48.080 --> 00:25:50.070
  • Oh my goodness, I had nothing to say.
  • 00:25:50.070 --> 00:25:52.140
  • This is the kind of service I see in here.
  • 00:25:52.160 --> 00:25:54.130
  • This morning, they treated me as though I am somebody.
  • 00:25:54.130 --> 00:25:58.080
  • They treated me as though I am a king.
  • 00:25:59.020 --> 00:26:00.280
  • I am serious.
  • 00:26:01.260 --> 00:26:03.010
  • I am serious.
  • 00:26:03.010 --> 00:26:03.280
  • And all the facilities.
  • 00:26:05.000 --> 00:26:07.140
  • Every facility.
  • 00:26:07.170 --> 00:26:09.070
  • I looked at how they dressed.
  • 00:26:09.110 --> 00:26:11.040
  • The way they carried themselves.
  • 00:26:11.060 --> 00:26:12.060
  • The way how they organize things.
  • 00:26:12.060 --> 00:26:13.240
  • The way how they communicate with each other.
  • 00:26:13.260 --> 00:26:15.170
  • I'm observing.
  • 00:26:15.190 --> 00:26:17.010
  • It is an excellence.
  • 00:26:17.030 --> 00:26:18.260
  • It is excellence.
  • 00:26:18.280 --> 00:26:20.030
  • Keep that up, because God loves that.
  • 00:26:20.050 --> 00:26:22.030
  • God loves excellence.
  • 00:26:22.030 --> 00:26:24.080
  • You know, when the Queen of Sheba went to...
  • 00:26:24.190 --> 00:26:27.280
  • She fainted--
  • 00:26:27.280 --> 00:26:29.220
  • - God, that man full of the word.
  • 00:26:29.220 --> 00:26:31.190
  • - She fainted.
  • 00:26:31.190 --> 00:26:33.030
  • - She fainted?
  • 00:26:33.030 --> 00:26:34.150
  • - Fainted when she saw how the worshipers went up
  • 00:26:34.150 --> 00:26:37.040
  • and come down and they(mumbling).
  • 00:26:37.040 --> 00:26:39.090
  • And the manservant...and they...
  • 00:26:39.090 --> 00:26:40.240
  • I'm telling you.
  • 00:26:40.240 --> 00:26:41.210
  • This weekend, I'm impressed.
  • 00:26:41.210 --> 00:26:44.040
  • I'm honored to be treated like
  • 00:26:44.210 --> 00:26:46.120
  • as though I am somebody from somewhere.
  • 00:26:46.120 --> 00:26:49.090
  • (laughing)
  • 00:26:49.230 --> 00:26:51.170
  • You know.
  • 00:26:51.190 --> 00:26:52.250
  • I'm a guy who grew up eating his food
  • 00:26:52.250 --> 00:26:56.140
  • on the newspaper with the dog.
  • 00:26:56.140 --> 00:26:58.270
  • That's the truth.
  • 00:27:00.050 --> 00:27:01.220
  • I was sharing that with Dr.Dee Dee and Pastor Freeman.
  • 00:27:02.130 --> 00:27:07.040
  • I ate my food on newspaper.
  • 00:27:07.090 --> 00:27:11.220
  • And I ate out of the dog's pan.
  • 00:27:11.280 --> 00:27:13.280
  • To be sitting with this great man today.
  • 00:27:16.040 --> 00:27:18.090
