  • that got me through."
  • 00:00:01.290 --> 00:00:03.080
  • "It wasn't our faith."
  • 00:00:03.080 --> 00:00:04.290
  • You get on television and you switch up on me.
  • 00:00:04.290 --> 00:00:07.110
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:00:07.110 --> 00:00:09.130
  • - Well, you were asleep most of the time so I ...
  • 00:00:09.130 --> 00:00:11.090
  • - And that's the place where I want to get
  • 00:00:13.030 --> 00:00:15.140
  • all of you on, in the resting place.
  • 00:00:15.140 --> 00:00:18.090
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:00:18.090 --> 00:00:19.220
  • - Where your faith provides such peace for you
  • 00:00:19.220 --> 00:00:24.090
  • that you rest through storms.
  • 00:00:24.090 --> 00:00:25.270
  • - [Congregation] Yeah.
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • I would have definitely avoided that.
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:02.170
  • But look at all of the good that has come out of
  • 00:01:03.080 --> 00:01:07.170
  • knowing from the beginning,
  • 00:01:07.270 --> 00:01:09.130
  • I was going to come through it.
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:10.280
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:01:10.280 --> 00:01:12.050
  • - God, knowing from the very beginning
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:14.020
  • that, "That's my boy."
  • 00:01:14.020 --> 00:01:15.110
  • "Whatever the devil tries on him,
  • 00:01:15.110 --> 00:01:17.200
  • I know he's going to get through this thing.
  • 00:01:18.140 --> 00:01:20.150
  • And then we're going to come out of it
  • 00:01:20.150 --> 00:01:22.170
  • with something."
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:23.200
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:01:23.200 --> 00:01:24.140
  • He takes thoughts and he throws them at you.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:27.110
  • That's why the Scripture says,
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:28.130
  • "Take no thoughts,"
  • 00:01:28.150 --> 00:01:30.000
  • saying, and then God gives us so many other words
  • 00:01:30.000 --> 00:01:32.120
  • like "Casting down every imagination that exalts,"
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:36.020
  • because, you know, if you meditate on a thought
  • 00:01:36.020 --> 00:01:38.070
  • long enough, it will penetrate your heart
  • 00:01:38.070 --> 00:01:40.080
  • and produce, and so it's important for us
  • 00:01:40.080 --> 00:01:42.220
  • to take care of those thoughts.
  • 00:01:42.220 --> 00:01:44.120
  • If a thought comes, it doesn't mean
  • 00:01:44.120 --> 00:01:45.180
  • it came from you.
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:47.120
  • And so you have to deal with the thought.
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:48.260
  • - Deal with your thoughts.
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:50.070
  • Please, deal with your thoughts.
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:51.270
  • You cannot handle thoughts with thoughts.
  • 00:01:51.270 --> 00:01:54.280
  • You're going to have to handle thoughts with words.
  • 00:01:54.280 --> 00:01:58.100
  • Words rule in this world.
  • 00:01:58.100 --> 00:02:00.230
  • Say that: words rule in this world.
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:04.040
  • You can't overcome a thought with a thought.
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:06.210
  • You have to overcome a thought with words.
  • 00:02:06.210 --> 00:02:09.090
  • As a matter of fact, if you're thinking something,
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:11.200
  • the minute you began to speak something,
  • 00:02:11.200 --> 00:02:14.050
  • that thought was stopped.
  • 00:02:14.050 --> 00:02:16.140
  • You got it?
  • 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:17.130
  • - [Congregation] Yeah.
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:18.080
  • - I say, do you have it?
  • 00:02:18.080 --> 00:02:19.030
  • - [Congregation] Yeah.
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:20.080
  • - So when I'm believing in my heart
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:22.050
  • and doubt enters my mind,
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:25.020
  • then there are things that the Scripture
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:26.200
  • has given me to deal with the doubt
  • 00:02:26.200 --> 00:02:29.030
  • that's in my mind.
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:30.130
  • Now, this may be elementary for some,
  • 00:02:30.130 --> 00:02:32.210
  • but this may be very critical for others.
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:35.210
  • This is major, because the minute you start
  • 00:02:35.210 --> 00:02:38.180
  • to doubt in your mind,
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:40.040
  • because I got to tell you,
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:41.150
  • if not every day, every other day,
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:43.280
  • fear and depression visited my bedside.
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:48.090
  • Fear and depression.
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:49.210
  • Very real considerations of fear,
  • 00:02:49.210 --> 00:02:53.060
  • very real temptations of depression,
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:55.250
  • because you're sick, you're lying there,
  • 00:02:55.250 --> 00:02:58.130
  • and nobody knows what you are being faced with.
  • 00:02:58.130 --> 00:03:02.150
  • As a matter of fact, the doctors tell you,
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.180
  • "We've never seen anything like this before."
  • 00:03:04.180 --> 00:03:07.010
  • And, Doc, I don't know if you are allowed to say
  • 00:03:08.040 --> 00:03:13.040
  • what you told us like this past week.
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:20.010
  • - About you?
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:21.090
  • - About me.
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:22.160
  • - Oh, he can tell anything about you
  • 00:03:22.160 --> 00:03:23.140
  • if you tell him it's okay.
  • 00:03:23.140 --> 00:03:24.120
  • - If I tell him it's okay?
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:25.250
  • He said this to us.
  • 00:03:26.260 --> 00:03:29.070
  • You know, they really still don't know
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:33.210
  • what attacked my body.
  • 00:03:34.110 --> 00:03:36.170
  • They had to give it a name
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:39.160
  • in order for
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:42.020
  • insurances to take it, or whatever the case
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:45.220
  • may have been.
  • 00:03:45.220 --> 00:03:47.160
  • They really have not concluded.
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:49.080
  • They've kind of generalized my situation
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:52.210
  • but nobody can tell me exactly what took place.
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:55.240
  • As a spirit-filled doctor, he said,
  • 00:03:57.250 --> 00:03:59.230
  • "I know that came from the pit of hell."
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:02.110
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:04.150
  • - I know that was an attack of Satan.
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:07.000
  • And if you can, if you can,
  • 00:04:07.000 --> 00:04:12.000
  • find yourself a spirit-filled doctor.
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:15.200
  • - [Congregation] Yeah.
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:17.090
  • - There is nothing wrong with you
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:20.260
  • having an interview with your doctor.
  • 00:04:20.260 --> 00:04:23.270
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:25.040
  • - "Doc, I just got a few questions."
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:26.200
  • - They ask you.
  • 00:04:27.110 --> 00:04:28.150
  • They ask you a bunch of questions.
  • 00:04:28.150 --> 00:04:30.000
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:32.060
  • Just tell your doctor you have
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:33.120
  • a few questions for him.
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:36.010
  • And every last one of these people
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.250
  • have come in my room, spirit-filled,
  • 00:04:37.250 --> 00:04:40.230
  • glory to God, talking and telling.
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:43.190
  • You know, you've got to be careful initially.
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:45.170
  • And the best part about it, Dr. Grazette
  • 00:04:45.170 --> 00:04:49.080
  • did not know who I was.
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:51.180
  • There were a lot of people in there.
  • 00:04:51.200 --> 00:04:53.010
  • They just wanted to come,
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:53.280
  • "That preacher in there."
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:55.030
  • "That church, he's in there."
  • 00:04:55.030 --> 00:04:58.110
  • And Dr. Dee Dee wouldn't let anybody in the room.
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:05:00.270
  • As a matter of fact, the chaplain came by one day.
  • 00:05:00.270 --> 00:05:04.140
  • "I would just like to pray."
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:05.190
  • "No, that's all right."
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:07.000
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:09.030
  • "Baby, let the man in."
  • 00:05:09.090 --> 00:05:10.180
  • "No, we're all right."
  • 00:05:10.180 --> 00:05:12.250
  • - You let him in.
  • 00:05:12.250 --> 00:05:14.060
  • - And then one day, somehow, he got in there.
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:17.040
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:05:17.040 --> 00:05:19.080
  • "Well, brother, we just want to pray for you,
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:22.260
  • and we heard all about you.
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:24.120
  • I know who you are."
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:26.030
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:27.290
  • "We want to pray with."
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:29.060
  • And then Dr. Dee Dee still told the man,
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:31.080
  • "No, that's all right."
  • 00:05:31.080 --> 00:05:32.170
  • I'm saying, "Baby, all he wants to do is pray."
  • 00:05:32.170 --> 00:05:34.230
  • "See, that could be the worst thing."
  • 00:05:34.230 --> 00:05:36.190
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:38.110
  • - I didn't know what he was going to say.
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:39.250
  • I didn't know him.
  • 00:05:39.250 --> 00:05:41.070
  • - [Member] That's true.
  • 00:05:41.070 --> 00:05:42.230
  • - And then ...
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:44.000
  • No, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:46.200
  • You said, "It's okay. Come on."
  • 00:05:47.150 --> 00:05:49.030
  • Then ...
  • 00:05:49.030 --> 00:05:50.030
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:51.000
  • (laughs)
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:52.050
  • He says, "Okay. Well, let's pray."
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.140
  • I say, "Oh, okay. It's all right."
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:55.110
  • He says, "Let's grab each other's hands."
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:58.140
  • He grabbed my hand and then he went to grab.
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:06:02.100
  • He said, "Come on, First Lady."
  • 00:06:02.100 --> 00:06:03.240
  • "You join us."
  • 00:06:03.240 --> 00:06:04.220
  • She says, "No, y'all go ahead."
  • 00:06:04.220 --> 00:06:05.230
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.200
  • (laughs)
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:09.250
  • - I wasn't trying to be mean.
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:13.070
  • - Yes, you were.
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:13.270
  • - No, I was not.
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:14.200
  • - Yeah, you were.
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:15.100
  • - No, I was not.
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:16.080
  • - Well, if you weren't trying,
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:17.050
  • it did came across like it.
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:18.150
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:19.190
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:20.160
  • When you're in a fight,
  • 00:06:20.160 --> 00:06:21.190
  • you ain't got time to be nice.
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:23.140
  • You know, not like that.
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:25.070
  • It's like, I've come too far
  • 00:06:25.070 --> 00:06:28.110
  • for somebody to come here and pray something
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:30.120
  • against the opposite of what we've been praying.
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:33.150
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.210
  • - No, don't try to fix it up.
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:36.040
  • Don't try to fix it up.
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:37.160
  • (congregation cheer and applause)
  • 00:06:37.160 --> 00:06:38.250
  • No, she's saying "we" now,
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:40.100
  • because if you saw her on the Channel 4
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:43.010
  • news interview, she said,
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:45.120
  • "The way he got through was a combination of
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:47.090
  • his medical care and my faith."
  • 00:06:47.090 --> 00:06:49.200
  • (laughs loudly)
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:51.020
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:52.160
  • I said, "Oh, it's your faith now
  • 00:06:52.160 --> 00:06:54.090
  • that got me through."
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:55.250
  • "It wasn't our faith."
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:57.160
  • You get on television and you switch up on me.
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:59.280
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:06:59.280 --> 00:07:02.020
  • - Well, you were asleep most of the time so I ...
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:03.280
  • - And that's the place where I want to get
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:08.030
  • all of you on, in the resting place.
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:10.280
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:07:10.280 --> 00:07:12.110
  • - Where your faith provides such peace for you
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:16.280
  • that you rest through storms.
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:18.160
  • - [Congregation] Yeah.
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:20.080
  • - That doesn't mean it is absent of work
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:24.070
  • because your work is to enforce
  • 00:07:24.070 --> 00:07:26.110
  • the finished work at Calvary.
  • 00:07:26.110 --> 00:07:28.250
  • How do I do that?
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:29.230
  • By believing.
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:30.280
  • How do I do that?
  • 00:07:30.280 --> 00:07:31.250
  • By singing in the Spirit.
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:33.090
  • How do I do that?
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:34.170
  • By just reading the Word.
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:36.190
  • I gave you the list of things.
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:38.230
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:39.280
  • - But Doc said to me, he said ...
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:42.030
  • Come here, Doc.
  • 00:07:42.030 --> 00:07:43.010
  • Come here, come here, come here.
  • 00:07:43.010 --> 00:07:43.250
  • Come here, come here.
  • 00:07:43.250 --> 00:07:44.250
  • - [Member] Microphone?
  • 00:07:44.250 --> 00:07:45.230
  • - Yeah, give him a microphone.
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:47.000
  • God, this is so good.
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:51.120
  • Thank God for Dr. Victor Granette,
  • 00:07:51.120 --> 00:07:53.160
  • would you please?
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:54.130
  • Grazette.
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:55.070
  • (congregation applause)
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:56.100
  • I want to say Granette. Grazette.
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:58.230
  • Interesting fellow.
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:01.230
  • I think he's a brilliant man.
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:03.210
  • I mean, he would come in there.
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.150
  • After he would give us
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:07.290
  • the technical terms, I'd say,
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:10.150
  • "Okay. Now, Doc, just break the whole thing down
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:14.010
  • and tell me what you just said."
  • 00:08:14.010 --> 00:08:16.050
  • And he said, "Well, you're going to live."
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:17.220
  • (laughs)
  • 00:08:17.220 --> 00:08:18.290
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:08:18.290 --> 00:08:20.180
  • But we were talking about some things
  • 00:08:20.180 --> 00:08:23.130
  • one evening.
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:28.150
  • And I mentioned that unlike most
  • 00:08:28.150 --> 00:08:31.240
  • of the other doctors who came in,
  • 00:08:31.240 --> 00:08:34.190
  • I did not know that I was as bad off
  • 00:08:35.150 --> 00:08:40.050
  • as I happened to be when you were in the room.
  • 00:08:40.050 --> 00:08:44.290
  • You spoke out of a different kind of authority.
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:50.190
  • It's almost the equivalent ...
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:53.170
  • And you got to watch him,
  • 00:08:53.170 --> 00:08:54.200
  • because he knows the Word.
  • 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:55.250
  • He can go back and forth with the Word.
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:57.140
  • And I'm a little cautious about him
  • 00:08:59.120 --> 00:09:02.220
  • to have the mic because if he ever aspires
  • 00:09:02.220 --> 00:09:04.040
  • to become a pastor, he may try to take my Church,
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:07.150
  • so I'm watching him every step of the way,
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:11.130
  • and I'm being very careful
  • 00:09:11.130 --> 00:09:12.160
  • because when Joshua and Caleb
  • 00:09:12.160 --> 00:09:17.160
  • spied out their land,
  • 00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:19.270
  • they came back with the other ten.
  • 00:09:19.270 --> 00:09:22.280
  • The other ten did not have a favorable report.
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:26.000
  • Do you remember that episode?
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:28.070
  • The Bible says,
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:29.180
  • "But Joshua and Caleb had another spirit."
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:34.160
  • We know now that it was a spirit of faith.
  • 00:09:35.150 --> 00:09:39.170
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:41.230
  • - When you walked into the room and shared with us,
  • 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:45.190
  • we understood that that, what you shared with us,
  • 00:09:45.190 --> 00:09:48.290
  • happened to be the same kind of spirit of faith.
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:52.160
  • I believe that's where the connection
  • 00:09:52.160 --> 00:09:54.170
  • happened to be with you and I,
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:56.220
  • and what God was even trying to do for your life --
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:59.260
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:09:59.260 --> 00:10:00.200
  • - In this whole episode.
  • 00:10:00.200 --> 00:10:02.120
  • Because something this weird happens.
  • 00:10:02.120 --> 00:10:05.030
  • We can't explain it.
  • 00:10:05.030 --> 00:10:07.080
  • And you and I are connected in ministry
  • 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:09.230
  • together now.
  • 00:10:09.230 --> 00:10:10.260
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:10:10.260 --> 00:10:11.230
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:10:11.230 --> 00:10:12.290
  • - You missed that.
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:14.210
  • I said you just missed that.
  • 00:10:17.090 --> 00:10:18.180
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:19.260
  • - It's like we agonize sometimes over things
  • 00:10:20.170 --> 00:10:25.170
  • that occur in our lives
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:31.110
  • and God is orchestrating something
  • 00:10:32.080 --> 00:10:36.140
  • of a --
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:37.070
  • - Something greater.
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.080
  • - Greater good.
  • 00:10:38.080 --> 00:10:39.150
  • - [Member] That's good.
  • 00:10:39.150 --> 00:10:40.290
  • - And we sometimes don't want to participate
  • 00:10:40.290 --> 00:10:43.290
  • in some of those things,
  • 00:10:43.290 --> 00:10:45.250
  • because God knows, if I could have avoided
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:49.190
  • what I went through,
  • 00:10:49.190 --> 00:10:51.070
  • I would have definitely avoided that.
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.250
  • But look at all of the good that has come out of
  • 00:10:53.250 --> 00:10:58.250
  • knowing from the beginning,
  • 00:10:59.050 --> 00:11:00.230
  • I was going to come through it.
  • 00:11:00.230 --> 00:11:02.080
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:11:02.080 --> 00:11:03.150
  • - God, knowing from the very beginning
  • 00:11:03.150 --> 00:11:05.120
  • that, "That's my boy."
  • 00:11:05.120 --> 00:11:06.210
  • "Whatever the devil tries on him,
  • 00:11:06.210 --> 00:11:09.000
  • I know he's going to get through this thing.
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:11.250
  • And then we're going to come out of it
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:13.270
  • with something."
  • 00:11:13.270 --> 00:11:15.000
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:11:15.000 --> 00:11:16.060
  • - Got it?
  • 00:11:16.060 --> 00:11:16.250
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:11:16.250 --> 00:11:18.020
  • - I'm just enamored.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:19.260
  • I'm grateful to God that,
  • 00:11:19.260 --> 00:11:23.260
  • I mean, look, Camilla is sitting there.
  • 00:11:25.020 --> 00:11:28.000
  • Camilla, this
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:31.050
  • is Camilla's boss.
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:33.190
  • They are also a team.
  • 00:11:35.170 --> 00:11:37.220
  • I walk into my sessions,
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:41.200
  • and they have already been in there,
  • 00:11:41.200 --> 00:11:43.260
  • and they have prayed,
  • 00:11:43.260 --> 00:11:45.020
  • and they have been in the Word,
  • 00:11:45.020 --> 00:11:46.260
  • and they have been singing,
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:48.110
  • and the atmosphere said ...
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:51.050
  • Listen, if you ever have to have therapy for ...
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:56.050
  • What is it?
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:56.290
  • Respiratory?
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:57.190
  • Tell me, Doc.
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:11:58.180
  • What's the department that --
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:12:00.060
  • - Pulmonary.
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:00.250
  • - Pulmonary.
  • 00:12:00.250 --> 00:12:02.080
  • - Pulmonary.
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:03.160
  • - And the area specifically that you are --
  • 00:12:03.160 --> 00:12:06.130
  • What is it called?
  • 00:12:06.130 --> 00:12:07.160
  • Is it Laurel Regional or is it --
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:08.220
  • - Laurel Regional.
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:10.150
  • Laurel Regional Hospital.
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:11.190
  • - Laurel Regional Hospital.
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:12.220
  • - Yes, yes.
  • 00:12:12.220 --> 00:12:13.280
  • - You ever have to have any kind of
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.170
  • pulmonary therapy --
  • 00:12:15.170 --> 00:12:17.050
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:18.050
  • - Here's your man right here.
  • 00:12:18.050 --> 00:12:19.140
  • God forbid, but just in case.
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:22.030
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:12:22.030 --> 00:12:22.280
  • - Got it?
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:23.230
  • - Or somebody you know.
  • 00:12:23.230 --> 00:12:24.170
  • - Somebody you know.
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:27.030
  • You need to make sure they get over to him.
  • 00:12:27.060 --> 00:12:29.250
  • Okay. Talk to me, Doc.
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:32.230
  • I don't know where to start.
  • 00:12:37.070 --> 00:12:38.190
  • - In the vein of ...
  • 00:12:38.190 --> 00:12:41.030
  • You started talking about Caleb.
  • 00:12:41.030 --> 00:12:42.260
  • When I walked into your room,
  • 00:12:42.260 --> 00:12:44.120
  • I did not know you.
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:46.050
  • I spoke to Camilla before your admission
  • 00:12:46.050 --> 00:12:49.010
  • and I told her --
  • 00:12:49.010 --> 00:12:50.060
  • - See, I can't even stand your voice.
  • 00:12:50.060 --> 00:12:51.190
  • (imitates deep, manly voice)
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:53.130
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:12:53.130 --> 00:12:55.280
  • - And I told her we had a patient coming,
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:01.160
  • and I would like her to see him
  • 00:13:01.160 --> 00:13:04.190
  • before he's even ready
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:06.220
  • to get into the program.
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:09.260
  • And I gave her your name,
  • 00:13:09.260 --> 00:13:11.170
  • and she said, "Mike Freeman?"
  • 00:13:11.170 --> 00:13:14.140
  • And I said, "I think Mike is his first name."
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:16.180
  • "I know his last name is Freeman."
  • 00:13:16.180 --> 00:13:18.250
  • But she knew you.
  • 00:13:18.250 --> 00:13:20.050
  • But when I saw you,
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:23.020
  • and I went to shake your hand,
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:24.290
  • I realized you couldn't even move.
  • 00:13:24.290 --> 00:13:29.140
  • And I had two other physicians with me.
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:32.050
  • I think it was Dr. Reeves and Dr. Hall.
  • 00:13:32.050 --> 00:13:35.210
  • And we went out into the hall
  • 00:13:35.210 --> 00:13:37.080
  • and we were talking about what could have been.
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:41.000
  • We knew you couldn't move,
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:43.190
  • but we didn't expect it to be at that level.
  • 00:13:43.190 --> 00:13:47.080
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:13:47.080 --> 00:13:48.060
  • - I have seen patients before
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:51.250
  • who were weak, but never ...
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:53.150
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:13:53.150 --> 00:13:54.180
  • - Who just absolutely was flaccid.
  • 00:13:54.180 --> 00:13:57.030
  • And so what they saw and what I saw --
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:13:59.260
  • - Come on, come on, come on.
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:01.040
  • - Was completely different.
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:01.290
  • - Come on.
  • 00:14:01.290 --> 00:14:02.220
  • - I saw a man of God
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:05.230
  • who will, what I put it as,
  • 00:14:05.230 --> 00:14:08.100
  • put in the ground to rise up again.
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:11.010
  • And so I knew.
  • 00:14:11.010 --> 00:14:12.170
  • I said to him that this is the beginning
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:16.090
  • or turning or pivotal point of a ministry.
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:19.220
  • And that is what I saw.
  • 00:14:19.220 --> 00:14:21.100
  • And from then on, there was a connection
  • 00:14:21.100 --> 00:14:23.050
  • between us.
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:24.040
  • And I began to pray every day.
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:26.070
  • - Every day.
  • 00:14:26.070 --> 00:14:27.060
  • - I began to pray for you both.
  • 00:14:27.060 --> 00:14:28.170
  • And when I prayed for you both,
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:30.070
  • all I could see,
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:31.230
  • all I could see is a ministry that people
  • 00:14:31.230 --> 00:14:34.110
  • will come from many places
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:36.260
  • and would be healed by the sound of your voice.
  • 00:14:36.260 --> 00:14:40.220
  • People will be restored.
  • 00:14:40.220 --> 00:14:42.090
  • Marriages will be restored.
  • 00:14:42.090 --> 00:14:43.140
  • Lives will be restored.
  • 00:14:43.140 --> 00:14:44.270
  • Families will be restored.
  • 00:14:44.270 --> 00:14:46.280
  • This is just the beginning.
  • 00:14:46.280 --> 00:14:50.090
  • What they saw and what I saw, I knew,
  • 00:14:50.090 --> 00:14:53.100
  • and I said, "God has already healed you."
  • 00:14:53.100 --> 00:14:57.080
  • But I thank God that he used ...
  • 00:14:57.080 --> 00:14:59.270
  • I mean, I thank God.
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:03.160
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:05.030
  • - This man, you have already been healed.
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:06.240
  • He has already done the work.
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:08.160
  • But through the process --
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:10.060
  • - Come on.
  • 00:15:10.060 --> 00:15:11.140
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:12.190
  • - Through the process of breaking ...
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:13.130
  • It's like ...
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:15.100
  • What's her name?
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:16.250
  • Sings a song.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.000
  • No, Winan.
  • 00:15:19.230 --> 00:15:22.050
  • CeeCee Winans sings a song,
  • 00:15:22.050 --> 00:15:24.010
  • and the words of it ...
  • 00:15:24.010 --> 00:15:25.070
  • I am definitely not going to sing the song.
  • 00:15:25.070 --> 00:15:26.140
  • I'm not even going to hum it.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:27.250
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:15:27.250 --> 00:15:29.040
  • The words of it says,
  • 00:15:29.040 --> 00:15:30.110
  • "Break me and feed me," something like that.
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:32.140
  • - Um-hmm. Um-hmm.
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:33.120
  • - And God broke you and fed you.
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:36.250
  • Many people met you and many people's lives
  • 00:15:36.250 --> 00:15:40.030
  • had been changed by the process.
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:42.150
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:15:42.150 --> 00:15:43.220
  • - God could have healed you and God could have
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:45.140
  • just raised you up immediately,
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:46.180
  • and He could, He could.
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:47.260
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:49.010
  • - But God always has a greater purpose.
  • 00:15:49.010 --> 00:15:52.040
  • And He used you to reach many people.
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:54.280
  • The situation that I was in,
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:56.200
  • that I explained to you,
  • 00:15:56.200 --> 00:15:58.180
  • God sent him
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:16:01.080
  • to reach me.
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:02.110
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:16:02.110 --> 00:16:03.160
  • - And it's through the process of what
  • 00:16:03.160 --> 00:16:04.210
  • you went through and are going through
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:07.020
  • that I am here today.
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:08.090
  • And I thank God for that.
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:09.260
  • (congregation cheer and applause)
  • 00:16:09.260 --> 00:16:12.010
  • - You spoke out of ...
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:15.180
  • So connect the faith part.
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:19.200
  • Okay. Doctors gather.
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:22.080
  • Doctors gather to discuss a case.
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:25.220
  • Two doctors are saying one thing,
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:29.220
  • and it wasn't that they were saying anything wrong.
  • 00:16:29.220 --> 00:16:33.030
  • - No, they were correct.
  • 00:16:33.030 --> 00:16:36.000
  • God has given us a measure of knowledge.
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:40.120
  • And through time, I believe God gives us
  • 00:16:40.180 --> 00:16:43.050
  • the dispensation of time,
  • 00:16:43.050 --> 00:16:44.120
  • I believe God opens up knowledge onto mankind.
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:48.230
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:49.280
  • - Because when God created the heavens
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:51.010
  • and the earth, everything was done.
  • 00:16:51.010 --> 00:16:52.280
  • Every answer is already there.
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:55.050
  • - Come on.
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:56.100
  • - The things that science is searching for
  • 00:16:56.100 --> 00:16:58.260
  • is already there.
  • 00:16:58.260 --> 00:17:00.210
  • Finding the human genome and unlocking
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:04.170
  • the transcription of human life
  • 00:17:04.170 --> 00:17:08.000
  • has always been there.
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:10.220
  • Just through dispensation, God gives knowledge
  • 00:17:10.220 --> 00:17:13.080
  • that people will find pieces in time.
  • 00:17:13.080 --> 00:17:17.000
  • So we know in part.
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:18.280
  • - Come on.
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:20.050
  • - And today what I know, what I learned today,
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.250
  • is the truth for today.
  • 00:17:21.250 --> 00:17:23.170
  • only for today, but God knows the truth,
  • 00:17:23.170 --> 00:17:27.190
  • all of the truth.
  • 00:17:27.190 --> 00:17:29.030
  • And so what I see today and tells me that
  • 00:17:29.030 --> 00:17:32.170
  • this is what is, that is as far as my knowledge
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:35.070
  • is concerned.
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:36.180
  • But beyond my knowledge is God.
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:38.280
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:40.050
  • - And so I always look beyond what I know,
  • 00:17:40.050 --> 00:17:42.280
  • because I know ...
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:44.180
  • Example, let me give you an example.
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:47.190
  • In the I think early 1900s, late 1800s,
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:52.190
  • smallpox, not smallpox, but malaria
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:57.210
  • was killing a lot of people.
  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:18:00.080
  • And the great minds of that time
  • 00:18:00.080 --> 00:18:02.270
  • didn't know what it was,
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:04.000
  • and so they postulated many things.
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:07.040
  • Today, even a high-schooler know
  • 00:18:07.040 --> 00:18:10.220
  • that malaria is caused by the Anopheles mosquito,
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:15.100
  • a high-schooler.
  • 00:18:15.100 --> 00:18:16.170
  • But in that time, it's not that the answer
  • 00:18:16.170 --> 00:18:19.060
  • wasn't there --
  • 00:18:19.060 --> 00:18:20.100
  • - I need to go back to high school.
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:21.040
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:24.010
  • Even in high school, I didn't know that.
  • 00:18:29.050 --> 00:18:32.020
  • - Okay. It's common knowledge.
  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:33.200
  • It's caused by a mosquito.
  • 00:18:33.200 --> 00:18:35.040
  • It's common knowledge.
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:36.020
  • But in those days, in that time,
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:37.260
  • the great minds of then didn't know that.
  • 00:18:37.260 --> 00:18:40.130
  • - Right.
  • 00:18:40.130 --> 00:18:41.110
  • - It is the same thing today.
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:42.110
  • When we saw you and realized,
  • 00:18:42.110 --> 00:18:45.120
  • "This man cannot even move his finger
  • 00:18:45.120 --> 00:18:49.090
  • to shake my hand."
  • 00:18:49.090 --> 00:18:51.060
  • And we went outside and were talking.
  • 00:18:51.060 --> 00:18:53.210
  • And one of the doctors said,
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:57.050
  • "This, I have never seen this."
  • 00:18:57.050 --> 00:18:59.240
  • "And I am not quite sure if --
  • 00:18:59.240 --> 00:19:01.160
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:19:01.160 --> 00:19:02.210
  • - "He's going to regain any strength."
  • 00:19:02.210 --> 00:19:05.230
  • And usually, you do not want to tell a patient,
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:10.160
  • give a patient hope.
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:11.090
  • - Um-hmm. Why?
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:12.140
  • - You don't want to give them hope
  • 00:19:13.120 --> 00:19:15.020
  • lest you fall short of the hope
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:17.090
  • and then you create mistrust.
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:19.000
  • - So doctors, are you trained to not give hope?
  • 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:23.080
  • - Well, physicians are trained ...
  • 00:19:23.080 --> 00:19:24.200
  • No, not to give hope, but to tell the truth
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:27.220
  • to where you are,
  • 00:19:27.220 --> 00:19:29.190
  • to the extent of what you know,
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:31.190
  • and don't go beyond what you know.
  • 00:19:31.190 --> 00:19:33.160
  • - Right.
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:34.150
  • - Don't go beyond what you know
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:36.110
  • because --
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:37.080
  • - To prevent lawsuits or --
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:38.150
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:39.090
  • To prevent the mistrust.
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:42.180
  • - Okay.
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:43.250
  • - And to prevent being a liar, so to speak.
  • 00:19:43.250 --> 00:19:45.230
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:47.050
  • - And so you speak to your knowledge.
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:49.010
  • That is the limitation of education.
  • 00:19:49.010 --> 00:19:50.230
  • - Okay.
  • 00:19:50.230 --> 00:19:51.130
  • - I always say,
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:53.010
  • "Education, the more educated I become
  • 00:19:53.010 --> 00:19:55.160
  • is the less I realize that I know."
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:58.010
  • It just makes you realize how little you know.
  • 00:19:58.010 --> 00:20:01.130
  • But the limitations of the knowledge
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:06.130
  • allows me to rely upon God.
  • 00:20:07.140 --> 00:20:11.250
  • - And so --
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:12.290
  • - Because he has the answers.
  • 00:20:12.290 --> 00:20:14.050
  • - But, and coming into the room now,
  • 00:20:14.050 --> 00:20:16.110
  • again, there ...
  • 00:20:16.110 --> 00:20:17.220
  • (laughs)
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:18.290
  • Lord Jesus.
  • 00:20:18.290 --> 00:20:20.180
  • I wonder, I wonder.
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:23.070
  • I'm trying to be as careful as possible.
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:27.060
  • Okay, okay.
  • 00:20:27.060 --> 00:20:28.070
  • I'll try to just keep it to ...
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:30.090
  • I almost didn't want certain doctors
  • 00:20:37.060 --> 00:20:40.080
  • to come by my ward.
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:42.080
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:20:42.080 --> 00:20:44.000
  • - But when you would walk in,
  • 00:20:44.000 --> 00:20:46.190
  • I would always want to just hear from you
  • 00:20:48.280 --> 00:20:52.020
  • concerning the report --
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.210
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:20:53.210 --> 00:20:55.220
  • - That was specifically my case.
  • 00:20:56.120 --> 00:21:00.100
  • - Right.
  • 00:21:00.100 --> 00:21:01.240
  • - What? Help me.
  • 00:21:02.250 --> 00:21:04.070
  • - I mean, you just got to be direct.
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:05.250
  • It's okay.
  • 00:21:05.250 --> 00:21:06.230
  • - I don't know how to be direct.
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:07.290
  • - But you knew it was a different --
  • 00:21:07.290 --> 00:21:09.230
  • - I knew it was different.
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:10.270
  • - As far as his faith was concerned,
  • 00:21:10.270 --> 00:21:12.100
  • because even though they would say certain things,
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:14.250
  • you knew they were going by what was written.
  • 00:21:14.250 --> 00:21:16.250
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:17.190
  • - What was in the book.
  • 00:21:17.190 --> 00:21:18.260
  • That's what they have been trained to do.
  • 00:21:18.260 --> 00:21:19.240
  • - But how was he not --
  • 00:21:19.240 --> 00:21:20.250
  • - Because of his faith.
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:22.030
  • - Coming in with the same --
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:23.160
  • - Because of what he believed.
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:25.100
  • He saw something different from
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:26.290
  • where you came from.
  • 00:21:26.290 --> 00:21:28.010
  • He saw your reports,
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:29.150
  • and he was looking like,
  • 00:21:29.150 --> 00:21:30.230
  • "Okay. Now, if God did this,"
  • 00:21:30.230 --> 00:21:32.040
  • he understood, because he tells us like
  • 00:21:32.040 --> 00:21:33.220
  • God was going to complete this.
  • 00:21:33.220 --> 00:21:35.040
  • - And I think what you are thinking or asking
  • 00:21:35.040 --> 00:21:37.140
  • is why, why --
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:40.280
  • Yeah.
  • 00:21:40.280 --> 00:21:42.030
  • - Why am I coming in with that report?
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:43.180
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:44.110
  • - Right.
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:45.090
  • - Because, now, my own niece --
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:46.270
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:21:46.270 --> 00:21:48.140
  • - Who has ...
  • 00:21:48.140 --> 00:21:49.060
  • What is she? ER?
  • 00:21:49.060 --> 00:21:51.090
  • - Emergency room.
  • 00:21:51.090 --> 00:21:52.140
  • - Emergency room.
  • 00:21:52.140 --> 00:21:53.150
  • A doctor pulled her aside.
  • 00:21:54.210 --> 00:21:57.000
  • - The first doctor.
  • 00:21:57.000 --> 00:21:57.240
  • - The first doctor.
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:21:58.140
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:21:58.140 --> 00:21:59.220
  • - And said to her,
  • 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:03.030
  • "You need to go and prepare his family."
  • 00:22:05.210 --> 00:22:07.240
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:22:07.240 --> 00:22:09.080
  • - And she said,
  • 00:22:10.140 --> 00:22:12.020
  • "I'm not going to go and do that."
  • 00:22:12.020 --> 00:22:13.110
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:15.160
  • - And he said,
  • 00:22:16.040 --> 00:22:18.020
  • "Do you see what I see?"
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:19.120
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:22:19.120 --> 00:22:20.240
  • - She said, "Yes, sir. I do."
  • 00:22:20.240 --> 00:22:22.080
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:22:22.080 --> 00:22:23.150
  • - "But I can't go out there and tell
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:25.160
  • my aunt and uncle that."
  • 00:22:25.160 --> 00:22:27.270
  • Now, at that particular time,
  • 00:22:27.270 --> 00:22:29.170
  • they told me I was conscious,
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:30.200
  • but I don't remember any of it.
  • 00:22:30.200 --> 00:22:32.030
  • - Right.
  • 00:22:32.030 --> 00:22:33.150
  • - And then I heard there are certain medications that
  • 00:22:34.160 --> 00:22:37.240
  • are designed to make you forget.
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:39.120
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:40.290
  • - I would like to have some of that at home.
  • 00:22:42.260 --> 00:22:44.140
  • (laughs)
  • 00:22:44.140 --> 00:22:45.230
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:22:45.230 --> 00:22:47.050
  • - I think you're still on it
  • 00:22:47.050 --> 00:22:48.170
  • because you've been forgetting.
  • 00:22:48.170 --> 00:22:51.020
  • - Give me a handkerchief to give to Doc,
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:53.210
  • because these lights are warm.
  • 00:22:53.210 --> 00:22:55.250
  • (Doctor laughs)
  • 00:22:55.250 --> 00:22:58.060
  • - And she told me ...
  • 00:22:58.170 --> 00:23:00.110
  • Give to Doctor.
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:01.090
  • You know what she told me, Doc?
  • 00:23:01.090 --> 00:23:04.000
  • She said, "Uncle Mike, I need to tell you something."
  • 00:23:04.000 --> 00:23:07.290
  • I said, "Yeah, baby."
  • 00:23:09.020 --> 00:23:09.240
  • "What is it?"
  • 00:23:09.240 --> 00:23:11.110
  • She said, "Your faith has provided hope
  • 00:23:11.170 --> 00:23:14.200
  • for other patients for me."
  • 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:16.260
  • - Amen.
  • 00:23:16.260 --> 00:23:18.140
  • - I said, "What are you talking about?"
  • 00:23:18.140 --> 00:23:20.090
  • She said, "In any other situation,"
  • 00:23:20.090 --> 00:23:23.230
  • - Um-hmm.
  • 00:23:23.230 --> 00:23:25.070
  • - "seeing what I saw from the reports that I got,
  • 00:23:25.070 --> 00:23:28.240
  • I would have told the family exactly
  • 00:23:28.240 --> 00:23:31.240
  • what the doctor wanted me to tell you."
  • 00:23:31.240 --> 00:23:34.130
  • "Because, ordinarily, a man doesn't live
  • 00:23:35.080 --> 00:23:38.130
  • with a report that you had.
  • 00:23:38.130 --> 00:23:41.160
  • - And then I think sometimes,
  • 00:23:41.200 --> 00:23:43.210
  • what fascinates me most,
  • 00:23:43.210 --> 00:23:46.010
  • I have never seen ...
  • 00:23:46.010 --> 00:23:47.280
  • When I talked to Sophia
  • 00:23:47.280 --> 00:23:50.220
  • and I got some of the numbers and I calculate,
  • 00:23:50.220 --> 00:23:54.290
  • because we do everything,
  • 00:23:54.290 --> 00:23:56.040
  • we calculate everything, and make decisions
  • 00:23:56.040 --> 00:23:57.260
  • based upon numbers.
  • 00:23:57.260 --> 00:23:59.260
  • And there is, in your situation and in ICU,
  • 00:23:59.260 --> 00:24:04.010
  • there is a number that you calculate
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:05.290
  • to figure out what the percent
  • 00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:08.070
  • the survival rate would be,
  • 00:24:08.070 --> 00:24:09.170
  • the mortality rate would be.
  • 00:24:09.170 --> 00:24:10.230
  • - Wow.
  • 00:24:10.230 --> 00:24:11.290
  • - And it's called the oxygen index.
  • 00:24:11.290 --> 00:24:13.200
  • And someone's oxygen index, around 30 is high.
  • 00:24:13.200 --> 00:24:17.290
  • 35 is high, and the mortality rate is about
  • 00:24:17.290 --> 00:24:20.220
  • 50 to 60 percent.
  • 00:24:20.220 --> 00:24:22.220
  • As it gets higher,
  • 00:24:22.220 --> 00:24:24.140
  • the mortality rate of course gets higher.
  • 00:24:24.140 --> 00:24:26.220
  • And your oxygen index was close to 60.
  • 00:24:26.220 --> 00:24:31.220
  • And I have never seen.
  • 00:24:32.240 --> 00:24:34.110
  • I have done research.
  • 00:24:34.110 --> 00:24:35.080
  • I have never seen
  • 00:24:35.080 --> 00:24:36.270
  • anyone, if your oxygen index reached 40,
  • 00:24:36.270 --> 00:24:39.290
  • we would pull you out of the study,
  • 00:24:39.290 --> 00:24:43.290
  • because the chances of you living is very slim.
  • 00:24:43.290 --> 00:24:48.220
  • And with an oxygen index of 60,
  • 00:24:48.220 --> 00:24:51.060
  • - [Member] Amen.
  • 00:24:51.060 --> 00:24:52.100
  • - And alive, and that is absolutely.
  • 00:24:52.100 --> 00:24:55.020
  • - Wait a minute, wait a minute.
  • 00:24:55.020 --> 00:24:56.080
  • I'll be right back, I'll be right back.
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:57.150
  • (laughs)
  • 00:24:57.150 --> 00:24:58.200
  • [congregation cheer and applause]
  • 00:24:58.200 --> 00:25:00.290
  • Woo!
  • 00:25:02.060 --> 00:25:03.020
  • Yes, sir. Talk to me.
  • 00:25:03.020 --> 00:25:04.110
  • - So God, this,
  • 00:25:04.110 --> 00:25:08.000
  • it had to be God.
  • 00:25:08.000 --> 00:25:10.240
  • The ECMO was definitely the last resort.
  • 00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:14.170
  • And then, still, there is no guarantee
  • 00:25:14.170 --> 00:25:17.120
  • that that would work
  • 00:25:17.120 --> 00:25:19.140
  • because your lungs were so bad,
  • 00:25:19.140 --> 00:25:21.020
  • they proned you.
  • 00:25:21.020 --> 00:25:22.080
  • And usually proned, when they prone someone,
  • 00:25:22.080 --> 00:25:24.140
  • then it's bad.
  • 00:25:24.140 --> 00:25:26.070
  • - When they what?
  • 00:25:26.070 --> 00:25:27.060
  • - When they put you upside down.
  • 00:25:27.060 --> 00:25:29.120
  • (Mike coughs loudly)
  • 00:25:29.120 --> 00:25:30.110
  • They put the bed upside down.
  • 00:25:30.110 --> 00:25:31.090
  • - Oh, I see.
  • 00:25:31.090 --> 00:25:32.070
  • I didn't even remember that.
  • 00:25:32.070 --> 00:25:33.120
  • - I hope you don't remember that.
  • 00:25:33.120 --> 00:25:34.090
  • - You were obviously out.
  • 00:25:34.090 --> 00:25:35.050
  • (congregation laughter)
  • 00:25:35.050 --> 00:25:36.010
  • - Huh?
  • 00:25:36.010 --> 00:25:36.170
  • (laughs)
  • 00:25:36.170 --> 00:25:37.140
  • - You were obviously out.
  • 00:25:37.140 --> 00:25:38.120
  • - I hope you don't remember it.
  • 00:25:38.120 --> 00:25:39.160
  • That would be very uncomfortable.
  • 00:25:39.160 --> 00:25:40.200
  • But they put you upside down.
  • 00:25:40.200 --> 00:25:42.040
  • That's usually pretty bad.
  • 00:25:42.040 --> 00:25:44.060
  • That's the last.
  • 00:25:44.060 --> 00:25:45.090
  • If that doesn't work,
  • 00:25:45.090 --> 00:25:47.050
  • usually when that doesn't work,
  • 00:25:47.050 --> 00:25:48.170
  • usually they will turn you back up and
  • 00:25:48.170 --> 00:25:52.090
  • call it.
  • 00:25:52.260 --> 00:25:54.010
  • And it's just a matter of days.
  • 00:25:54.010 --> 00:25:55.100
  • Usually it's a matter of hours.
  • 00:25:55.100 --> 00:25:57.170
  • ECMO is by far the very last resort,
  • 00:25:57.170 --> 00:26:01.290
  • and that has no guarantee.
  • 00:26:01.290 --> 00:26:03.160
  • It comes with its inherent risks also.
  • 00:26:03.160 --> 00:26:06.250
  • So having come through that and sitting here
  • 00:26:06.250 --> 00:26:09.290
  • and preaching today, it is not,
  • 00:26:09.290 --> 00:26:13.040
  • it is absolutely not --
  • 00:26:13.040 --> 00:26:15.130
  • I believe God has given us so much of wisdom
  • 00:26:16.120 --> 00:26:21.120
  • and so much of knowledge, human being, mankind.
  • 00:26:21.140 --> 00:26:24.180
  • But a miracle is when you draw that line
  • 00:26:24.180 --> 00:26:27.060
  • of knowledge and everything is exhausted.
  • 00:26:27.060 --> 00:26:31.240
  • Anything beyond that is a miracle.
  • 00:26:31.240 --> 00:26:35.140
  • And your pastor being here today,
  • 00:26:35.140 --> 00:26:38.030
  • sometimes I don't think we comprehend,
  • 00:26:38.030 --> 00:26:41.250
  • Camilla knows me.
  • 00:26:44.040 --> 00:26:45.170
  • I'm controlling myself in everything that I have.
  • 00:26:45.170 --> 00:26:48.140
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:26:48.140 --> 00:26:49.250
  • - To be dignified.
  • 00:26:49.250 --> 00:26:51.040
