  • I'll dig my way out

  • 00:00:28.170 --> 00:00:29.230
  • The potter's touch
  • 00:00:42.180 --> 00:00:45.180
  • - Bishop Jakes: He starts
  • 00:00:49.280 --> 00:00:50.200
  • fighting the Philistines.
  • 00:00:50.200 --> 00:00:52.110
  • The kingdom is divided.
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:53.090
  • There is conflict going on.
  • 00:00:53.090 --> 00:00:54.110
  • He's now down in Judah, and
  • 00:00:54.110 --> 00:00:55.230
  • he's gone after the Philistines.
  • 00:00:55.230 --> 00:00:58.000
  • He's engaged in a terrible
  • 00:00:58.000 --> 00:00:59.040
  • battle, huge battle.
  • 00:00:59.040 --> 00:01:01.270
  • He's fought a fight.
  • 00:01:01.270 --> 00:01:03.120
  • His fighting is awesome.
  • 00:01:03.120 --> 00:01:05.170
  • David could fight.
  • 00:01:05.170 --> 00:01:07.080
  • David could fight.
  • 00:01:07.080 --> 00:01:08.250
  • He wasn't just brave.
  • 00:01:08.250 --> 00:01:09.180
  • He could fight.
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:11.000
  • Those women weren't being
  • 00:01:11.000 --> 00:01:12.090
  • disrespectful when David came
  • 00:01:12.090 --> 00:01:14.070
  • back from battle, and they said,
  • 00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:15.170
  • "Saul has killed his thousands,
  • 00:01:15.170 --> 00:01:16.280
  • and David has killed his tens
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:18.000
  • of thousands."
  • 00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:18.280
  • They weren't insulting
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:19.210
  • King Saul.
  • 00:01:19.210 --> 00:01:21.090
  • It's just that David could
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:22.000
  • fight.
  • 00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:24.020
  • You weren't joking.
  • 00:01:24.020 --> 00:01:25.020
  • Killed 10.000 men.
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.000
  • You deserve a song.
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:30.010
  • You deserve a song.
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:31.270
  • He can't help the fact
  • 00:01:31.270 --> 00:01:32.190
  • that Saul gets jealous,
  • 00:01:32.190 --> 00:01:33.290
  • because David could fight.
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:35.190
  • David could fight
  • 00:01:35.190 --> 00:01:36.180
  • on another level.
  • 00:01:36.180 --> 00:01:37.280
  • He was impressive.
  • 00:01:45.280 --> 00:01:47.160
  • So, he stopped fighting,
  • 00:01:47.160 --> 00:01:48.180
  • and they stopped singing.
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:50.020
  • He wasn't fighting.
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:51.280
  • See, sometimes you have trouble
  • 00:01:51.280 --> 00:01:53.200
  • finding the thing that you were
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:55.280
  • created to do and sometimes
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:01:58.270
  • the thing that you spend
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:01:59.250
  • your time doing is not the thing
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:00.280
  • that you were created to do,
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:02.230
  • but it may be the thing
  • 00:02:02.230 --> 00:02:03.290
  • that leads you to the thing.
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:09.180
  • Yeah, yeah, no time is wasted,
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:11.210
  • because even if it's not
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:13.040
  • the thing it will be the thing
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:14.110
  • that leads to the thing.
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:17.130
  • Yeah, he goes against the
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:19.210
  • Philistines, and he engages in
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:20.260
  • this fight, and he comes back
  • 00:02:20.260 --> 00:02:22.100
  • from the fight and then comes
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:24.190
  • down to Ziklag, where he's left
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:26.020
  • his two wives, Abigail and
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:28.020
  • Ahinoam.
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:29.150
  • And there they are down there in
  • 00:02:29.150 --> 00:02:30.190
  • Ziklag waiting for him and the
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:32.190
  • rest of the men that come back
  • 00:02:32.190 --> 00:02:34.060
  • from battle.
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:35.120
  • He'd just finished fighting the
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:36.090
  • Philistines.
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:37.080
  • Now when you fight--I don't care
  • 00:02:37.080 --> 00:02:38.260
  • how tough you are.
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:40.080
  • When you fight and the fight is
  • 00:02:40.080 --> 00:02:41.290
  • over you're tired.
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.280
  • Even if you won you're tired.
  • 00:02:45.280 --> 00:02:48.150
  • Even if you beat 'em up you're
  • 00:02:48.150 --> 00:02:49.100
  • tried.
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:49.290
  • It cost to be a winner, and he's
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:56.050
  • tired, and he's come back from
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:57.140
  • the battle, and he's exhausted,
  • 00:02:57.140 --> 00:02:59.000
  • and he's used to being treated a
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:01.110
  • certain kinda way.
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:02.180
  • And let me say this.
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:03.140
  • Once you get used to a certain
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:04.150
  • reception, if you don't get that
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:06.100
  • reception, that alone is
  • 00:03:06.100 --> 00:03:07.200
  • torture.
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:10.190
  • David is used to when he gets
  • 00:03:10.190 --> 00:03:11.250
  • near to the city hearing the
  • 00:03:11.250 --> 00:03:13.160
  • music playing and the women
  • 00:03:13.160 --> 00:03:15.130
  • coming out dancing before him,
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:18.020
  • welcoming him back home.
  • 00:03:18.020 --> 00:03:20.090
  • And he gets ready.
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:21.090
  • He comes back home.
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:22.030
  • He's got the victory over the
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:23.060
  • Philistines, and he's coming
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:24.270
  • back around the mountain, and he
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:26.210
  • hears no music.
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:31.210
  • Oh, it kills the man who is a
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:33.150
  • warrior to come home to a silent
  • 00:03:33.150 --> 00:03:35.180
  • house.
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:40.130
  • I mean if he's a warrior, and he
  • 00:03:40.130 --> 00:03:42.060
  • fights.
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:43.240
  • When he comes home he wants to
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:45.020
  • hear some music.
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:46.180
  • He wants to hear some reception.
  • 00:03:46.180 --> 00:03:48.140
  • He wants somebody coming home
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:49.200
  • saying, "Hey, baby, you know
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:51.060
  • you're a bad boy.
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:52.210
  • I knew you was gonna get that
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:53.200
  • contract.
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:54.270
  • I knew it.
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:56.000
  • I got them biscuits in the oven,
  • 00:03:56.000 --> 00:03:58.050
  • baby.
  • 00:03:58.050 --> 00:03:58.240
  • I was waiting on you to get down
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:03:59.140
  • here."
  • 00:03:59.140 --> 00:04:01.100
  • Come talk to me, somebody.
  • 00:04:01.170 --> 00:04:04.170
  • There is nothing worse than
  • 00:04:04.170 --> 00:04:05.270
  • being a mighty warrior, having
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:07.190
  • come from a battle, to a silent
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:09.090
  • home.
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:15.250
  • No sound of music.
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:18.090
  • No sound of rejoicing.
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:21.100
  • Silence.
  • 00:04:21.100 --> 00:04:24.060
  • When there is supposed to be
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:26.140
  • jubilation and there is not,
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:28.200
  • the first feeling you feel is
  • 00:04:28.200 --> 00:04:30.230
  • disappointment, and when
  • 00:04:30.280 --> 00:04:33.280
  • the disappointment ebbs
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.150
  • they fear something is wrong.
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:42.120
  • Have you ever come in the house,
  • 00:04:42.120 --> 00:04:43.150
  • and you walked in the house,
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:44.270
  • and you didn't know anything yet
  • 00:04:44.270 --> 00:04:46.000
  • but you just felt like
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:47.100
  • something is wrong?
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:49.220
  • "Something is wrong.
  • 00:04:49.220 --> 00:04:50.280
  • This is not the atmosphere
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:04:52.200
  • I come home to.
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:53.220
  • Something is wrong.
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:56.140
  • It's quiet."
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.160
  • There's no rejoicing,
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:05:00.020
  • no toys out, no kids playing,
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:03.040
  • no smell of food, no cooking,
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:05.160
  • no women making bread,
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:07.140
  • nothing, nothing.
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:08.170
  • Everything is quiet
  • 00:05:08.170 --> 00:05:09.190
  • all over the village.
  • 00:05:09.190 --> 00:05:10.230
  • Everything is quiet.
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:13.110
  • Each man running into
  • 00:05:13.110 --> 00:05:14.180
  • his own place and every tent
  • 00:05:14.180 --> 00:05:16.050
  • they're coming out saying,
  • 00:05:16.050 --> 00:05:18.000
  • "She's not here.
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.250
  • Where the kids at?"
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:20.230
  • Hollering like,
  • 00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:21.180
  • "Hey, kids, hey, hey."
  • 00:05:21.180 --> 00:05:23.080
  • No sound.
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:25.050
  • Silence is a terrible thing.
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:28.150
  • Silence is a terrible thing.
  • 00:05:28.150 --> 00:05:30.200
  • God said it's not good for man
  • 00:05:30.200 --> 00:05:32.120
  • to be alone.
  • 00:05:32.120 --> 00:05:33.070
  • There is something
  • 00:05:33.070 --> 00:05:34.080
  • about silence.
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:35.100
  • There is a deafening scream
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:37.030
  • of silence, the deafening scream
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:39.200
  • of isolation, the deafening
  • 00:05:39.200 --> 00:05:41.250
  • scream of being left alone.
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:44.250
  • How could you come
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:46.060
  • from the sound of chariots
  • 00:05:46.260 --> 00:05:49.260
  • to the sound of silence?
  • 00:05:51.130 --> 00:05:54.130
  • He know something is wrong.
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:03.020
  • The stench of burning, their
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:06.210
  • stuff is on fire, their women
  • 00:06:07.070 --> 00:06:10.070
  • are gone, the children are gone,
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:13.260
  • and the men who have just been
  • 00:06:13.260 --> 00:06:15.150
  • fighting with him are now
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:18.120
  • talking about fighting
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:20.100
  • against him.
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:23.200
  • Have you ever had anybody turn
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:24.280
  • on you?
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:27.260
  • You understand what I mean?
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:29.100
  • It's one thing to have an enemy.
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.240
  • I don't have no problem with
  • 00:06:31.240 --> 00:06:32.240
  • that, 'cause if I know you're my
  • 00:06:32.240 --> 00:06:34.080
  • enemy I dress for you.
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:37.110
  • You understand?
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:39.040
  • I dress for you.
  • 00:06:39.040 --> 00:06:40.000
  • I come in there prepared 'cause
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:41.010
  • I already know you and me,
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:42.030
  • we don't do each other.
  • 00:06:42.030 --> 00:06:44.070
  • We don't do that, so okay.
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:50.070
  • But the heart cracks when
  • 00:06:50.170 --> 00:06:53.170
  • somebody who fought with you now
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:56.210
  • fights against you, and so here
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:07:01.100
  • they have turned against David,
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:04.180
  • and David is now discouraged.
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:09.100
  • He's lost both wives, his family
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:12.010
  • is in disarray, his men are in
  • 00:07:12.010 --> 00:07:14.210
  • grieving, and now those who
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:16.270
  • fought with him are now ready to
  • 00:07:16.270 --> 00:07:19.010
  • fight against him, and it was
  • 00:07:19.010 --> 00:07:20.250
  • the straw that broke
  • 00:07:20.280 --> 00:07:23.280
  • the camel's back.
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:26.210
  • You know, when you're tough and
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:27.230
  • you're strong people think
  • 00:07:27.230 --> 00:07:29.010
  • nothing will break you, but if
  • 00:07:29.010 --> 00:07:30.120
  • enough stuff happens back to
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:31.230
  • back to back to back eventually
  • 00:07:31.230 --> 00:07:34.030
  • you'll say, "Lord, even I can't
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:36.240
  • take no more of this."
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:39.190
  • Is there anybody in here that's
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:41.040
  • ever been pushed to your
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.190
  • breaking point?
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:44.160
  • And you say,
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:45.090
  • And there he is.
  • 00:07:55.160 --> 00:07:56.260
  • Oh God, I can't wait to tell you
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:59.010
  • what the Lord told me
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:00.190
  • to tell you.
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:02.010
  • There he is left alone,
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:04.050
  • in isolation, and leaders left
  • 00:08:04.050 --> 00:08:05.230
  • alone are tormented, because
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:07.180
  • leaders thrive in crowds because
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:09.270
  • they're anointed to lead, and
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:11.140
  • you can't lead nothing.
  • 00:08:11.140 --> 00:08:12.220
  • And when you got an anointing to
  • 00:08:12.220 --> 00:08:13.270
  • lead and nothing to lead, the
  • 00:08:13.270 --> 00:08:15.030
  • anointing turns into
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:16.130
  • frustration.
  • 00:08:16.130 --> 00:08:17.230
  • Hallelujah to God.
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:22.200
  • There he is frustrated, and he's
  • 00:08:23.200 --> 00:08:26.200
  • empty, and he's at his wit's
  • 00:08:26.200 --> 00:08:28.030
  • end, and he doesn't know what in
  • 00:08:28.030 --> 00:08:29.130
  • the world to do, and he does not
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:32.160
  • yet realize that God has set him
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:36.150
  • up, because it is only when all
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:41.210
  • doors close and all people
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:44.160
  • forsake you that you discover
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:47.240
  • what is inside of you.
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:52.100
  • Can I go a little bit deeper?
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:54.290
  • And so, the Bible says--the
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.090
  • Bible says David encouraged
  • 00:08:56.090 --> 00:08:58.140
  • himself in the Lord.
  • 00:08:59.190 --> 00:09:02.210
  • What it really means is that
  • 00:09:02.210 --> 00:09:03.280
  • David discovered himself, see?
  • 00:09:06.030 --> 00:09:09.030
  • Sometimes you're so busy
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:10.170
  • discovering what other people
  • 00:09:10.170 --> 00:09:11.270
  • got, that you don't know what
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.150
  • you got yourself, and God has to
  • 00:09:13.150 --> 00:09:15.240
  • pull people away from you and
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.200
  • leave you by yourself so that
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:20.210
  • you can dig down into the wells
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:22.150
  • of who you are and find out
  • 00:09:22.150 --> 00:09:24.040
  • what you got.
  • 00:09:24.040 --> 00:09:25.210
  • You've been waiting on somebody
  • 00:09:25.210 --> 00:09:27.030
  • to lift you up.
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.100
  • Lift yourself.
  • 00:09:33.090 --> 00:09:36.090
  • Oh, I want some radical people
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:37.160
  • in here tonight.

  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:34.080
  • Amalekites had slipped into
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:37.100
  • Ziklag.
  • 00:14:37.100 --> 00:14:39.080
  • Now, the Amalekites did not
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:40.240
  • fight like the Philistines.
  • 00:14:40.240 --> 00:14:43.090
  • The Philistinian army would
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:45.030
  • fight you like a man, but the
  • 00:14:45.150 --> 00:14:48.150
  • Amalekites fought you like a
  • 00:14:48.150 --> 00:14:49.280
  • sissy.
  • 00:14:53.000 --> 00:14:56.000
  • That's why God hated the
  • 00:14:56.000 --> 00:14:57.140
  • Amalekites, because their war
  • 00:14:58.060 --> 00:15:01.080
  • tactic was to hit you where you
  • 00:15:01.170 --> 00:15:04.170
  • were vulnerable.
  • 00:15:04.170 --> 00:15:06.290
  • They wouldn't stand up in your
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:07.270
  • face and talk to you like you're
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:09.090
  • a man.
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:11.010
  • No, they was too punk for that.
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:13.150
  • They would do little sissy stuff
  • 00:15:13.150 --> 00:15:15.070
  • and come up and fight your kids
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:16.200
  • and your woman, and God hates
  • 00:15:25.130 --> 00:15:28.130
  • anything that takes advantage of
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:31.210
  • your weakness.
  • 00:15:36.190 --> 00:15:39.190
  • Oh, my God.
  • 00:15:39.190 --> 00:15:41.170
  • My God, my God, my God.
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:43.200
  • The profundity of that, just
  • 00:15:43.200 --> 00:15:45.190
  • that last statement: God hates
  • 00:15:45.190 --> 00:15:47.240
  • anything that takes advantage of
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:49.130
  • your weakness.
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:50.200
  • It's really quite profound.
  • 00:15:50.200 --> 00:15:52.120
  • There is a Scripture where God
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:53.240
  • says if you and I are doing
  • 00:15:53.240 --> 00:15:56.100
  • business, and you use scales
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:58.140
  • that are out of balance to tip
  • 00:15:59.120 --> 00:16:02.140
  • them in your advantage, God said
  • 00:16:02.140 --> 00:16:04.170
  • you ought to be stoned.
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:08.150
  • The Bible says that if two men
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:10.050
  • are fighting and a woman comes
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:12.150
  • up and kicks the man in his
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:15.040
  • genitals, she is to be stoned.
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:16.270
  • Why?
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:18.190
  • God said, "I hate anybody
  • 00:16:18.190 --> 00:16:20.180
  • that takes advantage--"
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:27.180
  • See, some of the stuff
  • 00:16:27.180 --> 00:16:29.090
  • that you're fighting,
  • 00:16:29.090 --> 00:16:30.260
  • it ain't fighting fair.
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:34.180
  • It's taking advantage
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:35.230
  • of your weakness.
  • 00:16:35.230 --> 00:16:37.210
  • It studied your childhood.
  • 00:16:37.210 --> 00:16:39.260
  • It knows your vulnerabilities.
  • 00:16:39.260 --> 00:16:42.060
  • It knows what you're afraid of
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:43.170
  • and every time you're about to
  • 00:16:43.170 --> 00:16:45.160
  • get your blessing it don't fight
  • 00:16:45.160 --> 00:16:47.120
  • the grownup you.
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:49.190
  • It fights the little-girl you,
  • 00:16:58.180 --> 00:17:01.200
  • so there you are standing up
  • 00:17:01.200 --> 00:17:03.020
  • looking like a woman, but inside
  • 00:17:03.020 --> 00:17:04.230
  • you're feeling like a little
  • 00:17:04.230 --> 00:17:06.130
  • girl because you're being hit
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.020
  • in your vulnerable places.
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:17.030
  • See, between what I'm preaching
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:20.170
  • today and what I preached Sunday
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:23.140
  • a week ago about don't let life
  • 00:17:23.140 --> 00:17:24.200
  • change you, God's getting ready
  • 00:17:24.200 --> 00:17:26.170
  • to release you.
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:31.150
  • God's getting ready to turn you
  • 00:17:31.150 --> 00:17:32.150
  • loose.
  • 00:17:32.150 --> 00:17:34.080
  • Slap somebody and say, "This is
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:35.070
  • my message tonight.
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:37.160
  • Yeah, this is my message."
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:40.020
  • This is gonna move me into my
  • 00:17:40.020 --> 00:17:40.280
  • purpose.
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:42.110
  • It's gonna move me into my
  • 00:17:42.110 --> 00:17:43.030
  • destiny.
  • 00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:44.160
  • The devil has been picking on
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:45.280
  • the little boy in me.
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:47.220
  • Oh, but you're about to see
  • 00:17:47.220 --> 00:17:49.040
  • Tarzan go off in here.
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:51.070
  • Say, "Yes!"
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:56.080
  • Yeah, yeah, said I'm gonna take
  • 00:17:56.080 --> 00:17:58.080
  • you a little bit deeper, and I'm
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:17:59.110
  • gonna be gone in a minute.
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:18:00.150
  • I'm gonna be gone in a minute,
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:01.090
  • but I gotta get this to
  • 00:18:01.090 --> 00:18:02.060
  • somebody, because after this
  • 00:18:02.060 --> 00:18:03.030
  • message things are about to
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:04.260
  • change and after this message
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:06.260
  • things are about to move.
  • 00:18:06.260 --> 00:18:09.030
  • And after I preach this message
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:11.020
  • somebody is gonna go through a
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:12.080
  • metamorphosis.
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:14.110
  • Say, "Yeah!"
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:18.060
  • Whoo!
  • 00:18:18.060 --> 00:18:20.030
  • So, the reason I've been
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:25.190
  • preaching from the sixth verse,
  • 00:18:25.190 --> 00:18:28.190
  • which is where everybody
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:29.240
  • preaches from, is because the
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.090
  • sixth verse has created a cycle,
  • 00:18:32.040 --> 00:18:35.040
  • a pathology of dysfunction
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:37.080
  • in the church.
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:40.180
  • The sixth verse.
  • 00:18:40.180 --> 00:18:41.240
  • "And David encouraged himself
  • 00:18:41.240 --> 00:18:44.030
  • in the Lord."
  • 00:18:44.030 --> 00:18:45.150
  • It's not a bad thing,
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:47.230
  • See--oh, God.
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:57.140
  • When my back was out and they
  • 00:18:57.140 --> 00:18:59.080
  • cut into my back 4 inches deep,
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:01.280
  • that gave me a very strong
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.080
  • painkiller, but I wouldn't take
  • 00:19:03.080 --> 00:19:05.100
  • the painkiller 'cause I had read
  • 00:19:05.100 --> 00:19:06.270
  • that people get addicted
  • 00:19:06.270 --> 00:19:08.230
  • to painkillers.
  • 00:19:08.230 --> 00:19:10.160
  • So, I wouldn't take the
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:11.140
  • painkiller, and the doctor said,
  • 00:19:11.140 --> 00:19:13.150
  • "As long as you got severe pain,
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:15.280
  • you won't get addicted
  • 00:19:15.280 --> 00:19:17.120
  • to the painkiller."
  • 00:19:17.120 --> 00:19:19.140
  • He said, "People get addicted
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:20.230
  • when they start
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:21.280
  • taking painkillers and
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:23.130
  • the pain is gone."
  • 00:19:26.100 --> 00:19:29.100
  • And, see, what used to be
  • 00:19:29.100 --> 00:19:30.290
  • medicine has become
  • 00:19:30.290 --> 00:19:32.250
  • an addiction.
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:37.010
  • The church has got hooked
  • 00:19:37.010 --> 00:19:39.230
  • on encouragement.
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:48.090
  • I'm glad I came in the church at
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:50.210
  • a time when everybody wasn't
  • 00:19:50.210 --> 00:19:52.210
  • preaching encouraging messages,
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:56.140
  • back when Pastor McCaskill was
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:57.250
  • preaching stuff like--the
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:19:59.100
  • subject would be "Holiness or
  • 00:19:59.100 --> 00:20:00.180
  • Hell."
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:02.260
  • You don't hear nobody saying
  • 00:20:02.260 --> 00:20:04.130
  • nothing like that now.
  • 00:20:04.130 --> 00:20:06.160
  • All you hear is God's gonna
  • 00:20:06.160 --> 00:20:08.100
  • bless you, because the church is
  • 00:20:08.100 --> 00:20:10.090
  • strung out on prescription
  • 00:20:10.090 --> 00:20:12.190
  • medicine.
  • 00:20:24.220 --> 00:20:27.220
  • We come to church to get high
  • 00:20:29.190 --> 00:20:32.190
  • and what you needed at one stage
  • 00:20:32.190 --> 00:20:35.140
  • in your life because of the pain
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:37.110
  • you'd been through, you don't
  • 00:20:37.110 --> 00:20:39.100
  • need it anymore 'cause the pain
  • 00:20:39.100 --> 00:20:41.110
  • is over, but you're still
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:43.140
  • popping them same messages.
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:51.200
  • And you've turned our preachers
  • 00:20:51.200 --> 00:20:53.250
  • into pushers and if you don't
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:57.060
  • become a pusher they won't call
  • 00:20:57.060 --> 00:20:59.170
  • you back, but the devil is a
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:02.020
  • liar.
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:18.140
  • 'Cause if all we preach is
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.180
  • encouragement, we are teaching
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:23.040
  • you that you are still sick,
  • 00:21:23.140 --> 00:21:26.140
  • but the devil is a liar.
  • 00:21:26.140 --> 00:21:28.260
  • You are loosed.
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.090
  • You are healed.
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:32.000
  • - Bishop Jakes: Slap your
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:45.210
  • neighbor and say, "Get over it."
  • 00:21:48.140 --> 00:21:51.140
  • Get over it.
  • 00:21:51.140 --> 00:21:53.150
  • Stop crying and get--he said,
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:04.060
  • "When I encourage you, I am
  • 00:22:05.130 --> 00:22:08.130
  • going to encourage you to move,
  • 00:22:13.160 --> 00:22:16.160
  • and I don't want you to keep
  • 00:22:16.160 --> 00:22:18.160

  • do something that you ain't

  • gonna do," because if you do
  • 00:22:24.180 --> 00:22:27.180
  • then the oil is just spewing and
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:34.030
  • what should have given you life
  • 00:22:34.030 --> 00:22:36.200
  • starts producing death, because
  • 00:22:36.200 --> 00:22:38.200
  • you don't have the guts to take
  • 00:22:38.200 --> 00:22:41.010
  • action on the level of anointing
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:43.180
