  • The Potter's Touch.
  • 00:00:18.220 --> 00:00:21.220
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: Hey,
  • 00:00:25.230 --> 00:00:26.120
  • everybody.
  • 00:00:26.120 --> 00:00:26.290
  • I'm excited to have the
  • 00:00:26.290 --> 00:00:27.160
  • opportunity--I'm really, really
  • 00:00:27.160 --> 00:00:29.020
  • excited to have this opportunity
  • 00:00:29.020 --> 00:00:30.130
  • to share this word with you.
  • 00:00:30.130 --> 00:00:32.160
  • I'm excited about the message.
  • 00:00:32.160 --> 00:00:34.070
  • The message is called
  • 00:00:34.070 --> 00:00:35.170
  • "Break the Flow."
  • 00:00:35.170 --> 00:00:36.190
  • That is the message.
  • 00:00:36.190 --> 00:00:37.270
  • I am not the messenger.
  • 00:00:37.270 --> 00:00:39.090
  • My daughter, Pastor Sarah
  • 00:00:39.090 --> 00:00:40.250
  • Jakes-Roberts is the messenger.
  • 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:43.000
  • She was one of our speakers
  • 00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:44.060
  • at the previous International
  • 00:00:44.060 --> 00:00:45.170
  • Pastors and Leadership
  • 00:00:45.170 --> 00:00:47.020
  • Conference, and her message,
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:51.070
  • so profound and so powerful,
  • 00:00:51.140 --> 00:00:54.140
  • impacted us in an amazing way.
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:57.190
  • But she herself is
  • 00:00:57.190 --> 00:00:58.230
  • also a message.
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:01:00.240
  • - Pastor Sarah Jakes-Roberts: I
  • 00:01:00.240 --> 00:01:01.130
  • came to break the flow
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:03.040
  • of the enemy.
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:04.160
  • I came to break the flow of
  • 00:01:04.160 --> 00:01:06.060
  • depression in my household.
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:08.140
  • How am I gonna do it?
  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:10.050
  • I'm anointed to do it, baby.
  • 00:01:10.050 --> 00:01:12.180
  • When he called me into this
  • 00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:14.030
  • world he gave me the power
  • 00:01:14.030 --> 00:01:16.060
  • to break the flow.
  • 00:01:16.060 --> 00:01:19.050
  • - Bishop Jakes: To every PK, to
  • 00:01:19.050 --> 00:01:20.230
  • every family who's raising a
  • 00:01:20.230 --> 00:01:23.020
  • child, to every group or person
  • 00:01:23.020 --> 00:01:25.230
  • who has hit a dark place.
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:27.260
  • As you listen at her preach, she
  • 00:01:27.260 --> 00:01:30.230
  • is as much as she is saying, a
  • 00:01:31.100 --> 00:01:34.100
  • voice crying in the wilderness,
  • 00:01:34.100 --> 00:01:36.220
  • telling you what God is about
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:38.090
  • to do in your life.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:39.140
  • It affords me a great pleasure
  • 00:01:39.140 --> 00:01:40.120
  • and a great honor to present to
  • 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:42.270
  • some and introduce to others,
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:45.040
  • some and introduce to others,
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:48.090
  • - Sarah: We gotta be willing to
  • 00:01:50.180 --> 00:01:53.180
  • let go of some things to become
  • 00:01:53.180 --> 00:01:55.040
  • stronger and nobody tells you
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:57.120
  • that when you start
  • 00:01:57.120 --> 00:01:59.290
  • off dreaming.
  • 00:02:00.110 --> 00:02:03.110
  • And you start off planning and
  • 00:02:03.110 --> 00:02:05.290
  • it's not until you find yourself
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.210
  • in moments like Elijah and
  • 00:02:07.210 --> 00:02:09.200
  • Elisha that we recognize, I saw
  • 00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:11.180
  • this so much differently, that
  • 00:02:11.180 --> 00:02:13.060
  • the end of the flow is just as
  • 00:02:13.060 --> 00:02:15.000
  • challenging as creating the flow
  • 00:02:15.000 --> 00:02:16.180
  • in the first place.
  • 00:02:16.240 --> 00:02:19.240
  • The end of--the end of a flow.
  • 00:02:21.090 --> 00:02:24.090
  • As Elijah is preparing to be
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:26.100
  • taken up in a whirlwind he knows
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:28.170
  • that he's gonna be called home
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:30.180
  • this day.
  • 00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:31.220
  • He's gonna be called home.
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:32.250
  • And so he is dealing with the
  • 00:02:32.250 --> 00:02:34.190
  • process of his life changing.
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:38.010
  • And I realize that he is
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:40.080
  • rejecting--you guys are Bible
  • 00:02:40.080 --> 00:02:41.140
  • scholars, you know the text
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:42.160
  • better than I do.
  • 00:02:42.160 --> 00:02:43.170
  • I realize that when he is
  • 00:02:43.170 --> 00:02:44.290
  • pushing Elisha away, that he's
  • 00:02:45.130 --> 00:02:48.130
  • having to deal with the fact
  • 00:02:48.130 --> 00:02:49.290
  • that Elisha is not gonna be
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:51.170
  • connected to him the way that he
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:53.040
  • once was, that their flow
  • 00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:54.280
  • is ending.
  • 00:02:55.030 --> 00:02:58.030
  • And I wonder how many pastors
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:03:01.010
  • and how many leaders are in this
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:03.270
  • room who are having to deal with
  • 00:03:04.170 --> 00:03:07.170
  • the end of the flow as they
  • 00:03:09.110 --> 00:03:12.110
  • once knew it.
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:14.200
  • I thought as a PK that maybe we
  • 00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:17.100
  • were being rejected, that maybe
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:18.290
  • we didn't understand fully where
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:20.290
  • we fit, and now I realize that
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:22.170
  • my dad couldn't fully tell us
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:24.040
  • where we fit because he was
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:25.180
  • trying to figure out where
  • 00:03:25.180 --> 00:03:26.130
  • he fit.
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:27.170
  • The flow that he knew was ending
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:28.260
  • and he was becoming a stronger
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:30.100
  • flow and sometimes when you're
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:32.060
  • becoming a stronger flow you
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.190
  • don't know where people fit.
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:39.270
  • Yeah, not even--not even your
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:43.240
  • wife, not even your best friend,
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:47.000
  • not even your children.
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:49.190
  • I answered the call, I know
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:50.210
  • that this is what God has called
  • 00:03:50.210 --> 00:03:51.270
  • me to do.
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:52.200
  • I just didn't know that it was
  • 00:03:52.200 --> 00:03:53.170
  • gonna cost so much for the
  • 00:03:53.170 --> 00:03:55.150
  • flow to end.
  • 00:03:57.280 --> 00:04:01.000
  • Elisha has been with Elijah.
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:05.030
  • He served him, he took care
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:06.080
  • of him.
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:06.290
  • He was there when he called fire
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:08.020
  • down from heaven.
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:10.110
  • He saw him perform miracles.
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:11.270
  • He saw him prophesy, he saw him
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.200
  • stand in front of kings and,
  • 00:04:13.200 --> 00:04:15.070
  • yet, this is a different flow
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:16.290
  • that he's about to see
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:18.100
  • Elijah in.
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:19.120
  • This is a different flow.
  • 00:04:19.260 --> 00:04:22.260
  • And it is not lost on me that in
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:26.230
  • this room as we stretch
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:29.100
  • ourselves and prepare to lay
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:33.000
  • hold of what God has called us
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.110
  • to really create an impact, that
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:36.140
  • some of us are gonna have to
  • 00:04:36.140 --> 00:04:37.240
  • have people be in our lives even
  • 00:04:37.240 --> 00:04:40.120
  • if we don't know exactly where
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.170
  • they fit in.
  • 00:04:41.170 --> 00:04:42.210
  • We're gonna have to be honest
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:43.290
  • and vulnerable enough to let
  • 00:04:43.290 --> 00:04:45.080
  • them come, even when we don't
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:46.290
  • know where we're going.
  • 00:04:53.230 --> 00:04:56.230
  • Husbands, wives, businessmen,
  • 00:04:59.090 --> 00:05:02.110
  • I'm trying to flow in
  • 00:05:02.110 --> 00:05:03.080
  • another realm.
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:04.170
  • I'm trying to flow with
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:05.210
  • more strength.
  • 00:05:05.210 --> 00:05:06.140
  • I'm trying to flow with
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:07.100
  • more focus.
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:08.090
  • I'm trying to make an impact
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:09.250
  • in my life.
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:10.240
  • I'm trying to make an impact.
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:11.240
  • I want people to know that I was
  • 00:05:11.240 --> 00:05:13.040
  • here and the only thing about
  • 00:05:13.040 --> 00:05:14.230
  • that is that I just don't know
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:16.030
  • where you fit anymore.
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:21.160
  • Elijah rejects Elisha over
  • 00:05:22.200 --> 00:05:25.200
  • and over again.
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:28.110
  • He says, "Stay in Gilgal for the
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:30.090
  • Lord is sending me on to
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:31.270
  • Bethel," and he says, "No, I'm
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:33.200
  • gonna go wherever you go," and
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:34.280
  • then they get to Bethel and he
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:36.150
  • says, "Stay in Bethel for I'm
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:37.270
  • going on to Jericho."
  • 00:05:37.270 --> 00:05:39.050
  • He says it over and over again,
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:41.020
  • and I realize that loyalty is
  • 00:05:41.020 --> 00:05:43.220
  • not manipulation.
  • 00:05:43.220 --> 00:05:45.000
  • Loyalty is a character trait
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.130
  • because Elisha decided, "When I
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:48.070
  • was gonna serve you that I was
  • 00:05:48.070 --> 00:05:49.250
  • gonna serve you whether you were
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.080
  • flowing in a direction I
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:52.210
  • understood or flowing in a way
  • 00:05:52.210 --> 00:05:54.100
  • that I didn't fit.
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:55.140
  • I'm gonna be with you whether
  • 00:05:55.140 --> 00:05:56.290
  • you like it or not because
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:59.030
  • that's who I am and that's what
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:00.270
  • I'm called to do in your life.
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:02.290
  • So even when you don't know
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.090
  • where I fit, that's okay because
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:05.230
  • I know where I fit.
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.050
  • I'm supposed to be there
  • 00:06:07.050 --> 00:06:08.080
  • praying for you.
  • 00:06:08.080 --> 00:06:09.120
  • I'm supposed to be there
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:10.150
  • covering for you.
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:11.160
  • You've been wondering and
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:12.200
  • waiting for somebody to tell you
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:14.080
  • where you fit."
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:15.110
  • God said, "If you're really
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:16.130
  • called, I won't have to tell you
  • 00:06:16.130 --> 00:06:17.250
  • where you fit, you'll just
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:19.040
  • be there anyway.
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:20.220
  • If you're really called, I'll
  • 00:06:20.220 --> 00:06:21.250
  • never have to tell you
  • 00:06:21.250 --> 00:06:23.010
  • that I need you.
  • 00:06:23.010 --> 00:06:24.110
  • You'll see that I need you
  • 00:06:24.110 --> 00:06:25.120
  • before I open my mouth."
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:26.290
  • Where are my real people in
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:28.250
  • this room?
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.110
  • Not the people looking
  • 00:06:30.110 --> 00:06:31.110
  • for a come-up.
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:32.180
  • Not the people looking
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:33.170
  • to be seen.
  • 00:06:33.170 --> 00:06:34.210
  • The people who are saved.
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:37.080
  • I'm called to you.
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:43.030
  • Honey, our life is changing.
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:45.040
  • Our ministry is growing.
  • 00:06:45.040 --> 00:06:46.000
  • I don't know where I fit but
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:47.050
  • what I do know is I'm called
  • 00:06:47.050 --> 00:06:48.230
  • to you.
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:49.290
  • Honey, our business is booming,
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:52.090
  • it's taking off.
  • 00:06:52.090 --> 00:06:53.120
  • I don't know where I fit but
  • 00:06:53.120 --> 00:06:54.170
  • what I do know is I'm called
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.260
  • to you.
  • 00:06:55.260 --> 00:06:56.180
  • I used to be the secretary.
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:57.160
  • Now it doesn't make any sense
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:58.280
  • for me to be that but
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:07:00.090
  • guess what?
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:01.060
  • I'm still called to you.
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:02.130
  • I am your wife.
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:03.280
  • I am your husband.
  • 00:07:03.280 --> 00:07:05.010
  • And when God called you,
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:06.170
  • he called all of us.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.010
  • I will not forget the moment
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:09.240
  • when I felt the glory fall on
  • 00:07:09.240 --> 00:07:11.250
  • this marriage and I will live
  • 00:07:11.250 --> 00:07:13.160
  • until I see the glory
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:15.070
  • fall again.
  • 00:07:20.010 --> 00:07:23.010
  • To my PKs, they weren't
  • 00:07:25.250 --> 00:07:28.250
  • rejecting us, they just didn't
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:31.160
  • know that the flow was gonna
  • 00:07:31.160 --> 00:07:34.080
  • change their rhythm.
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:38.260
  • I'm trying to heal something in
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:42.190
  • this room.
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:45.080
  • I know what me being here
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:47.020
  • represents.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:48.090
  • I know why God had me do it
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:49.160
  • in this season.
  • 00:07:49.160 --> 00:07:50.260
  • I know that somebody needed
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:52.080
  • a sign that they weren't
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:53.140
  • gonna lose their child.
  • 00:07:53.140 --> 00:07:54.150
  • I need--I knew that somebody
  • 00:07:54.150 --> 00:07:55.230
  • needed help because they had
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:57.240
  • been lost in translation and
  • 00:07:57.240 --> 00:07:59.140
  • they'd been trying to help their
  • 00:07:59.140 --> 00:08:01.030
  • families understand that I'm not
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:02.150
  • really changing.
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.010
  • I'm not really trying
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:04.280
  • to be shady.
  • 00:08:04.280 --> 00:08:05.260
  • I'm not trying to reject you.
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:07.020
  • I just don't know who I am
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:08.160
  • in this flow.
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:10.080
  • I just don't know who I am
  • 00:08:10.080 --> 00:08:11.290
  • in this season.
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:16.150
  • And so I'm asking those of you
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:17.170
  • who recognize that the way you
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:20.170
  • used to flow was coming
  • 00:08:20.170 --> 00:08:21.170
  • to an end.
  • 00:08:21.170 --> 00:08:23.260
  • I'm asking you to let us
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:24.250
  • be there anyway.
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:29.140
  • I'm asking you to not push
  • 00:08:29.140 --> 00:08:31.100
  • us away.
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:33.270
  • Even if you don't know what we
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:34.230
  • can do, even if you don't know
  • 00:08:34.230 --> 00:08:36.040
  • where we fit, I'm asking that
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:37.260
  • you just allow us to be along
  • 00:08:37.260 --> 00:08:39.220
  • on the journey.
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:43.010
  • And I'm asking those of you who
  • 00:08:43.010 --> 00:08:45.210
  • want the attention and the
  • 00:08:45.210 --> 00:08:46.280
  • acknowledgement for being called
  • 00:08:46.280 --> 00:08:48.100
  • to recognize that it's not about
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:50.160
  • that anyway.
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:53.120
  • That what it's really about is
  • 00:08:53.120 --> 00:08:55.210
  • making sure that when they look
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:57.110
  • over beside themselves, that
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:09:01.000
  • they see somebody who could be
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:02.100
  • with them, whether they've
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:04.040
  • reached that next level of flow
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:05.230
  • or not, that it's important that
  • 00:09:05.230 --> 00:09:08.150
  • they look over and see someone
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:10.020
  • who's not judging the pace in
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:12.140
  • which they're flowing because
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:13.230
  • they recognize just how much
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:15.020
  • strength it took for them to
  • 00:09:15.020 --> 00:09:16.110
  • flow in the first place.
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:22.010
  • It is the end of the flow.
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:24.120
  • You will know when you are
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:25.260
  • coming to the end of a flow when
  • 00:09:25.260 --> 00:09:27.170
  • you experience what Elijah is
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:28.270
  • experiencing.
  • 00:09:28.270 --> 00:09:31.190
  • He's got Elisha pulling on him
  • 00:09:32.260 --> 00:09:35.260
  • and he's got heaven pulling
  • 00:09:35.260 --> 00:09:38.150
  • him up.
  • 00:09:42.000 --> 00:09:45.000
  • He's got one thing pulling him
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:48.080
  • this way and he's got another
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:50.250
  • thing...people wanna be pulled
  • 00:09:53.220 --> 00:09:56.220
  • up but they don't wanna
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:57.160
  • be pulled on.
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:58.200
  • So I had to tell you that if
  • 00:09:58.200 --> 00:10:00.200
  • you're not being pulled on, then
  • 00:10:00.200 --> 00:10:01.290
  • don't worry about being pulled
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:02.170
  • up 'cause you're not doing
  • 00:10:02.170 --> 00:10:04.030
  • enough on this level for us
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:05.280
  • to even pull you up.
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:12.040
  • I'm being pulled on and I'm
  • 00:10:12.040 --> 00:10:13.060
  • being pulled up at the
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:14.250
  • same time.
  • 00:10:14.250 --> 00:10:16.140
  • That's how I know it's time for
  • 00:10:16.140 --> 00:10:17.140
  • me to go to the next level
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:19.100
  • 'cause I feel like I can't do
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:20.210
  • enough to get to the next level
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:23.110
  • so God has to pull me up to give
  • 00:10:23.110 --> 00:10:25.030
  • me more width and more depth so
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:26.250
  • that I can lay hold and have
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:28.180
  • resources to take care of what's
  • 00:10:28.180 --> 00:10:31.050
  • pulling on me.
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:34.260
  • You're supposed to be being
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:35.240
  • pulled on.
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:37.060
  • That's a part of it.
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:38.010
  • I hope that's validation and
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:39.040
  • confirmation for somebody, that
  • 00:10:39.040 --> 00:10:40.260
  • you are supposed to be being
  • 00:10:40.260 --> 00:10:42.080
  • pulled on and pulled up at
  • 00:10:42.080 --> 00:10:44.130
  • the same time.
  • 00:10:48.070 --> 00:10:51.070
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, 'cause
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:56.060
  • if God is gonna reach down and
  • 00:10:56.060 --> 00:10:57.160
  • pull you up I need to know that
  • 00:10:57.160 --> 00:10:59.100
  • there's enough weight on you
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:11:00.260
  • that when I pull you up to the
  • 00:11:00.260 --> 00:11:02.160
  • next level, you're gonna be able
  • 00:11:02.160 --> 00:11:04.180
  • to stay there.
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:05.210
  • All these lightweight--can I
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:07.220
  • call 'em lightweights?
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:08.200
  • All these lightweight saints
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:11.020
  • wanna put out one book and then
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:12.270
  • wanna be pulled up.
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:14.180
  • I want you to pull out one
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:15.160
  • book--put out one book that
  • 00:11:15.160 --> 00:11:17.090
  • nobody buys.
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:18.190
  • I want you to open up a church
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:19.270
  • and wonder if anybody's coming.
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.240
  • I wanna pull you up when you
  • 00:11:21.240 --> 00:11:24.050
  • have so much weight on you that
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:26.060
  • you wonder if you should have
  • 00:11:26.060 --> 00:11:27.230
  • even started in the first place.
  • 00:11:27.230 --> 00:11:29.230
  • You wanna talk about effort
  • 00:11:29.230 --> 00:11:31.200
  • to impact?
  • 00:11:31.200 --> 00:11:32.290
  • Pull on me, God, so you can
  • 00:11:32.290 --> 00:11:34.240
  • pull me up.
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:37.040
  • 'Cause if you pull on me, I know
  • 00:11:37.040 --> 00:11:39.090
  • you're gonna pour something
  • 00:11:39.090 --> 00:11:40.050
  • out of me.
  • 00:11:40.050 --> 00:11:42.030
  • And when you pour that thing out
  • 00:11:42.030 --> 00:11:43.000
  • of me, I know it's gonna show
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:44.130
  • you that I can be pulled
  • 00:11:44.130 --> 00:11:45.240
  • up again.
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:47.250
  • I gotta say it 'til I see it
  • 00:11:47.250 --> 00:11:49.000
  • 'cause you're letting people
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:50.190
  • pull on you, make you forget
  • 00:11:50.190 --> 00:11:52.050
  • that I'm only pulling on you
  • 00:11:52.050 --> 00:11:53.260
  • to pull out of you.
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:55.090
  • And once I see what I put in
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:56.100
  • you, then I can elevate you
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:11:57.180
  • you, then I can elevate you
  • 00:11:57.180 --> 00:11:59.160
  • - male: I just got fired today.
  • 00:12:03.260 --> 00:12:06.260
  • - Bishop Jakes: How do you move
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:08.030
  • forward after facing the
  • 00:12:08.030 --> 00:12:09.020
  • crushing loss of a job?
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:10.230
  • - male: I thought I would have
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:12.100
  • been--stayed there as long
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:13.150
  • as I could.
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:14.130
  • - Bishop Jakes: Where do you
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:15.180
  • turn when your plans don't work
  • 00:12:15.180 --> 00:12:16.270
  • out the way you thought?
  • 00:12:16.270 --> 00:12:18.150
  • - male: I went straight home
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:19.140
  • and I went to Matthew 6.
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:21.270
  • Jesus says: "Do not worry."
  • 00:12:21.270 --> 00:12:24.200
  • And I waited for my wife to come
  • 00:12:24.200 --> 00:12:27.150
  • home and I had her read
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:29.070
  • that to me.
  • 00:12:29.070 --> 00:12:30.250
  • And she says, "Now, why did
  • 00:12:30.250 --> 00:12:31.120
  • I read that?"
  • 00:12:31.120 --> 00:12:32.030
  • "Because I just got
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:32.190
  • fired today."
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:34.010
  • And she looked back and she
  • 00:12:34.010 --> 00:12:35.200
  • said, "For some reason,
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:40.060
  • I still feel good."
  • 00:12:40.060 --> 00:12:41.270
  • - Bishop Jakes: God will take
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:42.240
  • life's pressures and turn them
  • 00:12:42.240 --> 00:12:44.280
  • into power.
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:46.260
  • - male: And that was a huge
  • 00:12:46.260 --> 00:12:48.030
  • moment in our marriage after
  • 00:12:48.030 --> 00:12:48.290
  • 30-some-odd years.
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:50.180
  • I think that's when we were
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:51.290
  • starting to communicate again.
  • 00:12:51.290 --> 00:12:53.040
  • And that has helped me and
  • 00:12:53.170 --> 00:12:56.170
  • I want to be that kind of a help
  • 00:12:56.170 --> 00:12:57.280
  • I want to be that kind of a help
  • 00:12:57.280 --> 00:12:59.270
  • - Sarah: So it dawns on me that
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:15.150
  • Elijah had to allow Elisha to
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:18.020
  • come with him and to serve him
  • 00:13:18.030 --> 00:13:21.030
  • even when he didn't know exactly
  • 00:13:21.030 --> 00:13:23.060
  • how to be served.
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:27.040
  • And so he allowed him to follow
  • 00:13:27.040 --> 00:13:28.080
  • him as he went, as he flowed, to
  • 00:13:29.100 --> 00:13:32.100
  • this journey to glory.
  • 00:13:33.120 --> 00:13:36.120
  • And I love this because they're
  • 00:13:36.120 --> 00:13:37.220
  • going back and forth and the
  • 00:13:37.220 --> 00:13:39.080
  • sons of the prophet know that
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:41.000
  • he's gonna be taken away and yet
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:42.140
  • they're still flowing and yet
  • 00:13:42.140 --> 00:13:44.000
  • Elisha is still serving.
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:46.100
  • He's serving even
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:47.020
  • though--sometimes serving is
  • 00:13:47.020 --> 00:13:48.080
  • just being there.
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:51.140
  • Sometimes serving is just
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:52.260
  • being present.
  • 00:13:56.270 --> 00:13:59.270
  • I just wanted to show up
  • 00:13:59.270 --> 00:14:00.290
  • for you.
  • 00:14:00.290 --> 00:14:03.170
  • I just wanted to be there with
  • 00:14:03.170 --> 00:14:05.030
  • you when you transition.
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:06.240
  • I just wanted you to know that
  • 00:14:06.240 --> 00:14:07.290
  • you weren't there by yourself
  • 00:14:07.290 --> 00:14:09.000
  • and so Elisha serves Elijah even
  • 00:14:09.190 --> 00:14:12.190
  • though they're headed into
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:14.110
  • this transition.
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:15.120
  • And, listen, this is my--I got
  • 00:14:15.120 --> 00:14:16.180
  • just a few short minutes left
  • 00:14:16.180 --> 00:14:18.100
  • and this is all I want you
  • 00:14:18.100 --> 00:14:19.100
  • to remember.
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:22.100
  • So, Elijah is headed towards
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:24.050
  • the Jordan.
  • 00:14:24.050 --> 00:14:26.100
  • God, give me strength.
  • 00:14:27.010 --> 00:14:30.010
  • And as he's heading to the
  • 00:14:30.010 --> 00:14:31.080
  • Jordan, there are 50 men of the
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:33.020
  • sons of prophet who are there
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.160
  • and they're standing there,
  • 00:14:34.160 --> 00:14:35.260
  • looking at him as he journeys
  • 00:14:35.260 --> 00:14:38.170
  • to the Jordan.
  • 00:14:38.290 --> 00:14:41.290
  • And as he is focused on passing
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:45.050
  • through the Jordan, he has to do
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:46.270
  • it with an audience.
  • 00:14:50.100 --> 00:14:53.100
  • He has to do it with people
  • 00:14:53.100 --> 00:14:54.210
  • watching and wondering and
  • 00:14:55.050 --> 00:14:58.050
  • criticizing and talking and
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:03.230
  • wondering and criticizing 'cause
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:08.060
  • I've been called to cross the
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:10.190
  • Jordan but if I'm honest I don't
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:13.040
  • know how I'm gonna do it.
  • 00:15:13.040 --> 00:15:16.010
  • And I've gotta do it with
  • 00:15:16.010 --> 00:15:16.170
  • an audience.
  • 00:15:16.170 --> 00:15:19.050
  • And I have to do it with people
  • 00:15:19.050 --> 00:15:20.030
  • watching but I know that I've
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:21.010
  • been called and so what I do is
  • 00:15:21.010 --> 00:15:22.040
  • I walk towards the Jordan even
  • 00:15:22.040 --> 00:15:23.230
  • though I don't know how
  • 00:15:23.230 --> 00:15:24.260
  • I'm gonna cross it.
  • 00:15:24.260 --> 00:15:27.180
  • And I walk towards change even
  • 00:15:27.180 --> 00:15:29.170
  • though I don't know how I'm
  • 00:15:29.170 --> 00:15:30.260
  • gonna get the loan and I walk
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:32.190
  • into counseling even though I
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:34.080
  • don't know if the marriage is
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:35.180
  • gonna be saved.
  • 00:15:35.180 --> 00:15:36.280
  • I'm walking towards the Jordan
  • 00:15:36.280 --> 00:15:38.110
  • because I'm trusting that if God
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:39.270
  • called me to the Jordan, that
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:41.170
  • he's gonna create a way for me
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:43.070
  • to cross it.
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:44.120
  • I don't know how he's gonna do
  • 00:15:44.120 --> 00:15:45.260
  • it, I don't even know why he
  • 00:15:45.260 --> 00:15:47.110
  • would do it for someone like me,
  • 00:15:47.110 --> 00:15:48.270
  • but I do know is that he told me
  • 00:15:48.270 --> 00:15:50.270
  • I must go towards the Jordan.
  • 00:15:50.270 --> 00:15:53.140
  • Somebody say, "Break the flow."
  • 00:15:58.070 --> 00:16:01.090
  • You got to break the flow.
  • 00:16:01.090 --> 00:16:03.240
  • You got to break the flow.
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.260
  • How am I gonna cross the Jordan?
  • 00:16:05.260 --> 00:16:07.060
  • I'm gonna have to break

  • more anointed?
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:00.040
  • Because I was a single river
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:01.140
  • that messed around and got with

  • a lot of miracles, most of them
  • 00:21:39.000 --> 00:21:42.000
  • involved prophesying and calling
  • 00:21:42.140 --> 00:21:45.140
  • fire down from heaven.
  • 00:21:46.080 --> 00:21:49.080

  • willing to not just have that
  • 00:22:20.290 --> 00:22:22.200
  • mantle on you but to use that

  • mantle to break something off of
  • 00:22:24.220 --> 00:22:27.220

  • Jordan to be baptized, heaven
  • 00:23:30.270 --> 00:23:32.290
