  • 00:00:08.260 --> 00:00:10.130
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: When it's
  • 00:00:10.130 --> 00:00:11.020
  • time it's gonna happen.
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:12.200
  • Ha-ha-ha.
  • 00:00:12.200 --> 00:00:13.160
  • When it's time it's gonna come
  • 00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:14.100
  • to pass.
  • 00:00:14.100 --> 00:00:16.100
  • When it's time you're coming
  • 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:17.140
  • outta trouble.
  • 00:00:17.140 --> 00:00:18.210
  • When it's time can't no grave
  • 00:00:18.210 --> 00:00:20.070
  • hold your body down.
  • 00:00:20.070 --> 00:00:22.080
  • When it's time God is gonna
  • 00:00:22.080 --> 00:00:24.000
  • resurrect you.
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.040
  • When it's time--oh, y'all don't
  • 00:00:25.040 --> 00:00:26.130
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:40.110 --> 00:00:42.180
  • - Bishop Jakes: "The steps of a
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:48.190
  • good man are ordered by the
  • 00:00:48.190 --> 00:00:49.110
  • Lord."
  • 00:00:49.110 --> 00:00:50.050
  • I know you're used to shouting
  • 00:00:50.050 --> 00:00:51.070
  • over that text, but before you
  • 00:00:51.240 --> 00:00:54.240
  • dance think a minute.
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:01:00.040
  • God-ordered steps.
  • 00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:02.260
  • Who wants steps?
  • 00:01:04.010 --> 00:01:07.010
  • Nobody wants steps.
  • 00:01:07.010 --> 00:01:09.180
  • Steps are not beautiful.
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:11.280
  • They're not attractive.
  • 00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:13.130
  • Now when they put 'em in your
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:14.100
  • house they try to decorate 'em,
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:16.220
  • put carpet on 'em.
  • 00:01:16.220 --> 00:01:18.140
  • Some people even put lights up
  • 00:01:18.140 --> 00:01:19.140
  • under 'em.
  • 00:01:19.140 --> 00:01:21.030
  • They try to decorate 'em, but
  • 00:01:21.030 --> 00:01:22.010
  • nobody wants steps.
  • 00:01:22.010 --> 00:01:23.130
  • The only reason we have steps is
  • 00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:25.110
  • If there were a way to get
  • 00:01:32.000 --> 00:01:33.190
  • upstairs without going up stairs
  • 00:01:35.030 --> 00:01:38.030
  • to get there, we would take it.
  • 00:01:38.190 --> 00:01:41.190
  • If we could afford an elevator,
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:43.160
  • we would put one in.
  • 00:01:43.160 --> 00:01:45.230
  • But if you don't have the
  • 00:01:45.230 --> 00:01:47.060
  • $60.000-$70.000 it takes to put
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:49.250
  • an elevator in your house, then
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:52.090
  • You're going up the steps one at
  • 00:01:56.050 --> 00:01:59.050
  • a time.
  • 00:01:59.050 --> 00:02:01.210
  • I take them one at a time now.
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:04.120
  • I didn't used to.
  • 00:02:04.120 --> 00:02:06.180
  • I used to take two and three at
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:10.050
  • a time.
  • 00:02:10.050 --> 00:02:12.080
  • When I was younger I would just
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:13.190
  • step over steps and just take
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:17.090
  • two or three steps at a time.
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:19.130
  • I did that.
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:20.170
  • I ran up the steps talking on
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:24.240
  • the phone.
  • 00:02:24.240 --> 00:02:25.190
  • I skipped over the steps.
  • 00:02:25.190 --> 00:02:28.020
  • I ignored the steps.
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:29.240
  • They were no problem when I was
  • 00:02:29.240 --> 00:02:31.110
  • younger.
  • 00:02:31.110 --> 00:02:32.090
  • No, no, I don't remember knees
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:34.080
  • aching, back hurting, anything.
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:36.190
  • I just went up the steps fast.
  • 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:40.240
  • I ran up on 'em until I tripped
  • 00:02:40.260 --> 00:02:43.260
  • on 'em.
  • 00:02:43.260 --> 00:02:46.220
  • As long as I had never tripped
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:49.010
  • going up the steps, I ran going
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:51.050
  • up the steps.
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:52.210
  • I skipped over the top of 'em.
  • 00:02:52.210 --> 00:02:54.130
  • It was funny to me to see
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:56.080
  • somebody take one step at a
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:57.160
  • time.
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:58.140
  • My legs were long.
  • 00:02:58.140 --> 00:02:59.240
  • My back was straight.
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:01.060
  • I could expedite the process and
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:03.110
  • get there quicker.
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:04.100
  • Old people got on my nerves.
  • 00:03:04.100 --> 00:03:05.270
  • Took 'em too long to get where
  • 00:03:05.270 --> 00:03:07.120
  • they were trying to go.
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:08.170
  • "Excuse me.
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:09.170
  • Step aside.
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:10.150
  • Move to the right, I gotta go."
  • 00:03:10.150 --> 00:03:12.160
  • I'd run up the steps, until I
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:14.090
  • fell on the steps, and the steps
  • 00:03:16.120 --> 00:03:19.120
  • I bust my lip on a step, and I
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:27.220
  • learned respect for the process.
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:31.150
  • I learned that the race is not
  • 00:03:31.150 --> 00:03:33.220
  • given to the swift, nor the war
  • 00:03:35.050 --> 00:03:38.050
  • to the strong, but to him that
  • 00:03:38.050 --> 00:03:39.210
  • endureth to the end.
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:42.050
  • I learned, as cars shot past me,
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:46.020
  • and jumped in front of me, and
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:48.010
  • pulled around me when I was
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:49.110
  • driving, only to meet me at the
  • 00:03:49.110 --> 00:03:52.060
  • red light, I learned God has
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:57.270
  • ordered steps.
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:04:00.220
  • The thing that I'm thankful for
  • 00:04:00.220 --> 00:04:02.260
  • is to know that God orders the
  • 00:04:02.260 --> 00:04:05.160
  • steps.
  • 00:04:05.160 --> 00:04:07.090
  • It helps me to understand that I
  • 00:04:07.090 --> 00:04:09.090
  • am not wandering aimlessly, that
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:13.180
  • I'm not just moving on my own,
  • 00:04:13.180 --> 00:04:16.150
  • that there is a course for me to
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:19.290
  • take, and that I can't graduate
  • 00:04:20.190 --> 00:04:23.190
  • till I take it, that there is a
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:27.120
  • path for me to trod, that God
  • 00:04:27.120 --> 00:04:29.130
  • isn't making this thing up as he
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:31.200
  • goes.
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:33.190
  • I thought he was making it up as
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:35.160
  • he went.
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:36.030
  • That's why I prayed, so he could
  • 00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:38.100
  • I prayed to abort the process.
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:44.090
  • I prayed to speed it up.
  • 00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:46.060
  • I prayed to get out of things
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:48.010
  • that he wanted me to stay into.
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:50.010
  • I prayed that I wouldn't have to
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:51.190
  • endure some things that he
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:52.210
  • wanted me to endure.
  • 00:04:52.210 --> 00:04:54.070
  • I was working on the
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:04:56.000
  • destination, but he was working
  • 00:04:56.000 --> 00:04:57.230
  • on me, and sometimes he made me
  • 00:05:01.040 --> 00:05:04.040
  • wait.
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:05.080
  • He made me slow down and said,
  • 00:05:05.080 --> 00:05:07.110
  • "No, you skipped that step.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:09.050
  • Go back and do that again.
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:17.010
  • If you skipped it with Jimmy,
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:19.140
  • I'm gonna send it back with
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:21.240
  • Freddy.
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:26.050
  • If you skipped it with Willie,
  • 00:05:26.050 --> 00:05:27.250
  • you're gonna have to go through
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.000
  • it with Roger.
  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:30.020
  • If you skipped it with Sally,
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:31.110
  • you're gonna go through it with
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:32.130
  • Susie, because all of these are
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:34.220
  • tools that I'm using to work on
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:36.100
  • you.
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:37.200
  • I'm not preparing the blessing
  • 00:05:37.200 --> 00:05:39.050
  • for you.
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:40.130
  • I'm preparing you for the
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:41.190
  • blessing."
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:42.240
  • The blessing is already
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:43.260
  • prepared.
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:45.030
  • Oh, my God.
  • 00:05:45.030 --> 00:05:46.060
  • The blessing is already
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:47.060
  • prepared.
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:48.140
  • not heard, neither has entered
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:53.090
  • into the heart of man the things
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:55.020
  • that God has prepared for them
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.140
  • that love him.
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:58.240
  • Did you know your blessing is
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:05:59.160
  • already ready, that it's already
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:02.240
  • in place, that God isn't fixing
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:05.100
  • it up right now?
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:07.080
  • It's already done, that the work
  • 00:06:07.080 --> 00:06:09.200
  • doesn't have to be applied to
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:11.010
  • where you're going.
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:13.130
  • The work has to be applied to
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:14.190
  • you so that when you get where
  • 00:06:14.190 --> 00:06:16.250
  • you're going you can handle what
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:19.080
  • you gotta handle and--O God,
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:22.000
  • help me preach.
  • 00:06:22.000 --> 00:06:23.020
  • The steps, the steps, the steps.
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:25.200
  • Touch three people and say, "The
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:26.150
  • You wanted a good husband, but
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.080
  • You wanted children, but you
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:42.050
  • wasn't a good parent.
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.230
  • You wanted a good wife, but you
  • 00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:45.260
  • wasn't a good man, and any time
  • 00:06:46.050 --> 00:06:49.050
  • you get anything too soon you
  • 00:06:49.050 --> 00:06:52.020
  • will trip on the steps, and so
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:57.090
  • God puts us in process and
  • 00:06:57.090 --> 00:07:00.060
  • orders steps.
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:02.170
  • He does it by steps.
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:04.200
  • He does everything by steps.
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:07.080
  • He does everything by steps.
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.100
  • Somebody was--some young pastor
  • 00:07:08.100 --> 00:07:09.230
  • was--had gotten a hold of some
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:11.130
  • of our materials that we
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:14.080
  • disseminate behind the scenes
  • 00:07:14.080 --> 00:07:15.190
  • for our conferences, and they
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:18.050
  • said everything is regimented.
  • 00:07:18.050 --> 00:07:20.210
  • At 7 o'clock the lights go up.
  • 00:07:20.210 --> 00:07:22.090
  • At 7:01 the praise singers sing.
  • 00:07:22.090 --> 00:07:24.130
  • At 7:15 it's in the hand of
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:26.000
  • so-and-so, and so--and they were
  • 00:07:26.000 --> 00:07:27.090
  • amazed, because they were used
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:29.150
  • to going to a church that had no
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:30.190
  • I explained to them when you
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:35.150
  • don't have much to manage you
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:39.200
  • can do it haphazardly.
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:42.120
  • You can just call Sister Agnes
  • 00:07:42.120 --> 00:07:43.200
  • out of the crowd and say, "I see
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:44.280
  • Agnes has come in the building.
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.250
  • Let's have Agnes come sing a
  • 00:07:46.250 --> 00:07:48.180
  • solo."
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:49.190
  • But when you have something
  • 00:07:49.190 --> 00:07:52.060
  • massive to run you can't run it
  • 00:07:52.060 --> 00:07:54.180
  • in a haphazard way.
  • 00:07:54.180 --> 00:07:56.160
  • Your structure has to be
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:07:58.000
  • different.
  • 00:07:58.000 --> 00:07:59.010
  • Your order has to be different.
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:01.060
  • You can't move spontaneously.
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:03.220
  • You have to move a little
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:04.270
  • methodically and mechanically so
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:08.210
  • that you are prepared to handle
  • 00:08:08.210 --> 00:08:10.030
  • it.
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:11.020
  • You can't drive an 18-wheeler
  • 00:08:11.020 --> 00:08:13.230
  • like you drive a Volkswagen.
  • 00:08:13.230 --> 00:08:15.250
  • You can make a sudden turn in a
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:17.230
  • VW, but if you're driving an
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:19.110
  • 18-wheeler you got to think
  • 00:08:19.110 --> 00:08:21.060
  • before you get to the turn and
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:23.010
  • start shifting down and moving
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:25.130
  • into position, so that when you
  • 00:08:25.130 --> 00:08:27.090
  • get to the turn you are
  • 00:08:27.090 --> 00:08:28.240
  • positioned to make the right
  • 00:08:28.240 --> 00:08:29.290
  • turn.
  • 00:08:29.290 --> 00:08:31.000
  • And if you weren't gonna do much
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:33.090
  • God could jerk you quickly, but
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:35.190
  • to him whom much is given much
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:38.030
  • is required, and you have to go
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:40.030
  • through the process to get
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:41.190
  • everything lined up.
  • 00:08:41.190 --> 00:08:43.140
  • Yes, you can handle it, but can
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:46.020
  • your children handle it?
  • 00:08:46.020 --> 00:08:47.220
  • Yes, you can handle it, but can
  • 00:08:47.220 --> 00:08:50.070
  • your spouse handle it?
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:52.070
  • Yes, you can handle it, but do
  • 00:08:52.070 --> 00:08:54.170
  • you have the right friends for
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:08:56.030
  • where you're trying to go?
  • 00:08:56.030 --> 00:08:58.070
  • There has to be some adjustments
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:08:59.270
  • on the steps before you get to
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:01.280
  • You can't get to the stage
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.210
  • "The steps of a good man are
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:21.010
  • ordered by the Lord."
  • 00:09:21.010 --> 00:09:22.280
  • Even Jesus had steps.
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:26.200
  • They tried to crown him too
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:28.070
  • soon, and he disappeared,
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:31.050
  • because they were trying to make
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:32.110
  • him skip the steps.
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:34.080
  • He said, "No, no, you can't
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.220
  • It is my cross that makes my
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:49.150
  • crown.
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:53.220
  • It is my agony that makes my
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:57.000
  • ecstasy.
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:59.070
  • It is my sickness that makes my
  • 00:09:59.070 --> 00:10:01.230
  • healing.
  • 00:10:01.230 --> 00:10:03.140
  • It is my poverty that
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:06.170
  • illuminates my prosperity, makes
  • 00:10:06.170 --> 00:10:09.080
  • me appreciate where I am."
  • 00:10:09.080 --> 00:10:11.220
  • O God, help me.
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:13.240
  • Makes me appreciate where I am
  • 00:10:13.240 --> 00:10:14.280
  • right now.
  • 00:10:14.280 --> 00:10:16.220
  • You don't notice good health
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:18.070
  • till you've been sick.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:20.120
  • You don't even notice it.
  • 00:10:20.120 --> 00:10:21.190
  • You don't even understand the
  • 00:10:21.190 --> 00:10:23.070
  • words that are coming out of my
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:24.210
  • mouth until you have been sick.

  • liver until you've been
  • 00:10:37.280 --> 00:10:39.190
  • challenged, but after a while
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:41.080
  • you start thanking God for crazy
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:43.080
  • stuff.
  • 00:10:43.080 --> 00:10:44.250

  • truth of the matter is it's a
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:58.130
  • whole lotta folk in here that
  • 00:10:58.130 --> 00:11:00.030
  • are thankful for stuff that they
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:01.250
  • can't testify about, because
  • 00:11:01.250 --> 00:11:04.020
  • people wouldn't understand your

  • testimony.
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:06.200
  • I mean dumb stuff like, "Lord, I

  • thank you I can afford to get my
  • 00:11:09.040 --> 00:11:10.010
  • Oh, y'all don't understand.

  • I know that ain't a big
  • 00:11:20.200 --> 00:11:21.250
  • testimony, but when you've been
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:24.050
  • to hell and back you can thank
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:26.270
  • I went to my oldest son's
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:47.160
  • graduation.
  • 00:11:47.160 --> 00:11:49.120
  • I didn't know I was gonna do it,

  • Couldn't help it.
  • 00:12:03.190 --> 00:12:05.190
  • It wasn't the diploma that made
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:07.010

  • through hell and high water, the

  • storm, and the rain, I was just

  • "The steps of a good man are

  • ordered it.
  • 00:15:51.240 --> 00:15:53.160
  • It's something he wanted you to
  • 00:15:53.160 --> 00:15:54.120
  • learn.
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:55.270
  • Some things you can only learn

  • palace.
  • 00:15:59.220 --> 00:16:01.020
  • Some revelations you can't get
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:02.080
  • until you've done stupid thing
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:04.010
  • after stupid thing after stupid
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.190
  • thing, and then you wake up and
  • 00:16:05.190 --> 00:16:07.160
  • say, "Wait a minute.
  • 00:16:07.160 --> 00:16:08.240
  • I'm better than that.
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:09.280

  • before, you wouldn't have that
  • 00:16:13.190 --> 00:16:15.010
  • right now.
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:17.010

  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:23.030
  • I'm not talking about a bad man.
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:28.030
  • I'm talking about a good man.
  • 00:16:28.030 --> 00:16:30.060
  • Don't you sit there with your
  • 00:16:30.060 --> 00:16:31.010
  • good self and say, "Oh, that
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:32.160
  • won't happen to me 'cause I'm
  • 00:16:32.160 --> 00:16:33.130
  • good."
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:34.220
  • No, it's gonna happen to you
  • 00:16:34.220 --> 00:16:35.220
  • because you're good.
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:38.200
  • The steps of a good man are
  • 00:16:38.240 --> 00:16:41.240
  • ordered, ordered by the Lord.
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:46.270
  • Not offered, ordered.
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:50.050
  • He ordered you to go up the
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:51.060
  • steps.
  • 00:16:51.060 --> 00:16:52.210
  • He wouldn't let you bypass the
  • 00:16:52.210 --> 00:16:54.100
  • process.
  • 00:16:54.100 --> 00:16:55.230
  • All those people who offered you
  • 00:16:55.230 --> 00:16:56.220
  • quick deals, the reason the deal
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:16:58.180
  • went down is because God ordered
  • 00:16:58.180 --> 00:17:01.070
  • you to go up the steps.
  • 00:17:01.070 --> 00:17:03.000
  • He didn't intend for you to go
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:04.030
  • up the elevator.
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:05.080
  • He knew if you got there too
  • 00:17:05.080 --> 00:17:06.120
  • fast you wasn't gonna be ready
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:07.100
  • for it.
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:08.120
  • He slowed down your process.
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:10.020
  • He let the deal go down.
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:11.180
  • It wasn't time yet.
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:14.100
  • When it's time it's gonna
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:15.150
  • happen.
  • 00:17:15.150 --> 00:17:16.090
  • Ha-ha-ha.
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:17.070
  • When it's time it's gonna come
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:18.130
  • to pass.
  • 00:17:18.130 --> 00:17:19.210
  • When it's time you're coming
  • 00:17:19.210 --> 00:17:21.060
  • outta trouble.
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:22.100
  • When it's time can't no grave
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:24.040
  • hold your body down.
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:25.230
  • When it's time God is gonna
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:27.170
  • resurrect you.
  • 00:17:27.170 --> 00:17:28.230
  • When it's time--oh, y'all don't
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:30.130
  • hear what I'm saying.
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:31.280
  • So, what I do?
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:41.070
  • What do I do?
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:43.060
  • In the meantime, while I wait to
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:57.160
  • reach my destination, the only
  • 00:17:57.160 --> 00:18:00.160
  • thing I have to worry about is,
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:03.020
  • "Lord, let me stay on track."
  • 00:18:05.130 --> 00:18:08.130
  • They met Brother Job one day,
  • 00:18:09.000 --> 00:18:12.000
  • and they said, "Job, your
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:14.020
  • children are dead.
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:16.050
  • Your cattle are dead.
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:18.150
  • Your wife has despised you.
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:21.060
  • Your name has gone down."
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:24.000
  • He said, "That's all right.
  • 00:18:24.000 --> 00:18:24.280
  • I'm right on track.
  • 00:18:24.280 --> 00:18:26.290
  • The Lord knows the way that I
  • 00:18:27.090 --> 00:18:30.090
  • take, and when he has tried me I
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:34.030
  • shall come forth as pure gold."
  • 00:18:35.080 --> 00:18:38.080
  • I don't know who God wanted me
  • 00:18:38.080 --> 00:18:39.180
  • to preach to this morning, but
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:42.030
  • the Lord sent me to tell you
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:43.120
  • you're right on track.
  • 00:18:44.100 --> 00:18:47.100
  • Having done all to stand, stand
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:50.040
  • therefore anyway, and whatever
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:52.200
  • happens just say, "Lord, I thank
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:55.110
  • I won't murmur in it.
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:02.090
  • I won't complain in it.
  • 00:19:02.090 --> 00:19:04.030
  • I won't be fearful.
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:05.130
  • I won't be frightened in it.
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:07.130
  • I'm right on track."
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:09.180
  • High-five somebody and say, "I'm
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:10.250
  • right on track."
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:12.210
  • I'm right where God wants me to
  • 00:19:12.210 --> 00:19:14.230
  • be.
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:16.020
  • I'm doing what God wants me to
  • 00:19:16.020 --> 00:19:17.150
  • do.
  • 00:19:17.150 --> 00:19:18.230
  • I know what God wants me to
  • 00:19:18.230 --> 00:19:20.060
  • know.
  • 00:19:20.060 --> 00:19:21.100
  • I understand what God wants me
  • 00:19:21.100 --> 00:19:22.240
  • to understand.
  • 00:19:22.240 --> 00:19:24.050
  • I can't get there before God
  • 00:19:24.050 --> 00:19:26.010
  • wants me to get there.
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:27.190
  • When the time is right I will
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:30.100
  • get there.
  • 00:19:30.100 --> 00:19:31.080
  • The enemy is trying to seduce
  • 00:19:36.070 --> 00:19:38.210
  • you off track, because if he can
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:42.080
  • get you off track you'll lose
  • 00:19:42.080 --> 00:19:44.230
  • your blessing.
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:46.230
  • The thing you're worried about
  • 00:19:46.230 --> 00:19:48.160
  • right now is nothing but a
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:50.160
  • If I'm preaching to you give God
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:58.030
  • - Bishop Jakes: Hallelujah.
  • 00:20:13.080 --> 00:20:15.230
  • Yeah!
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:18.030
  • Yeah!
  • 00:20:18.220 --> 00:20:21.220
  • So, the battle is to stay on
  • 00:20:23.150 --> 00:20:26.150
  • track.
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:27.250
  • I used to wonder, Dion, why did
  • 00:20:27.250 --> 00:20:29.040
  • God say put on the whole armor?
  • 00:20:30.150 --> 00:20:33.150
  • The helmet of salvation.
  • 00:20:33.150 --> 00:20:35.030
  • The breastplate of
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:35.260
  • righteousness.
  • 00:20:35.260 --> 00:20:36.270
  • Feet shod with the preparation
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:38.020
  • of the gospel.
  • 00:20:38.020 --> 00:20:39.150
  • Sword of the Spirit, which is
  • 00:20:39.150 --> 00:20:40.220
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:20:40.220 --> 00:20:42.030
  • Shield of faith.
  • 00:20:42.030 --> 00:20:43.220
  • Why did he have me put on all
  • 00:20:43.220 --> 00:20:44.250
  • that stuff and then tell me
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:46.120
  • stand?
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:50.090
  • Why you putting shoes on and
  • 00:20:50.090 --> 00:20:51.240
  • then tell me to be still?
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:54.100
  • Why you give me a sword and a
  • 00:20:54.100 --> 00:20:55.140
  • shield and tell me to stand?
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:58.060
  • He said, "It's gonna take all of
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:20:59.160
  • that stuff for you to stay on
  • 00:20:59.160 --> 00:21:02.050
  • track.
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:03.240
  • I gave you all of that equipment
  • 00:21:03.240 --> 00:21:05.230
  • for you to just fight the good
  • 00:21:05.230 --> 00:21:07.240
  • fight of faith."
  • 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:10.060
  • The fight is to stay on track.
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:14.050
  • A thousand may fall on your
  • 00:21:15.020 --> 00:21:18.020
  • right side, ten thousand may
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:21.180
  • fall on your left side; but they
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:24.010
  • shall not come nigh thee."
  • 00:21:24.010 --> 00:21:26.230
  • "For the steps of a good man are
  • 00:21:26.230 --> 00:21:29.190
  • ordered by the Lord: and he
  • 00:21:29.190 --> 00:21:32.160
  • delighteth in his way."
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:35.010
  • And all you gotta do to get
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:37.240
  • outta this is stay on track.
  • 00:21:41.120 --> 00:21:44.120
  • Say it.
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:45.080
  • Say it again.
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:49.130
  • Stay on track.
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:52.150
  • Say it again.
  • 00:21:52.150 --> 00:21:53.290
  • - congregation: Stay on track.
  • 00:21:53.290 --> 00:21:56.270
  • - Bishop Jakes: Give him a
  • 00:21:56.270 --> 00:21:57.200
  • [music]
  • 00:22:05.170 --> 00:22:08.170
  • - Bishop Jakes: I'm starting to
  • 00:22:08.170 --> 00:22:09.110
  • get it now.
  • 00:22:09.110 --> 00:22:11.210
  • I'm starting to get it now.
  • 00:22:11.210 --> 00:22:13.170
  • I didn't get it till I got in my
  • 00:22:13.170 --> 00:22:14.110
  • 50s.
  • 00:22:15.190 --> 00:22:18.190
  • I didn't begin to catch on till
  • 00:22:18.190 --> 00:22:21.130
  • I got in my 50s.
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:23.000
  • See, it's like the children of
  • 00:22:23.000 --> 00:22:23.180
  • Israel going through the Red
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:24.100
  • Y'all always shout about that,
  • 00:22:26.110 --> 00:22:27.080
  • but that text make me nervous,
  • 00:22:27.080 --> 00:22:28.240
  • 'cause if the Lord blew back the
  • 00:22:31.150 --> 00:22:34.150
  • Red Sea for miles and there were
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:36.210
  • walls of water on both sides,
  • 00:22:37.060 --> 00:22:40.060
  • and they was walking through the
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:41.050
  • And they were looking at what
  • 00:22:49.180 --> 00:22:50.060
  • could happen, and what might
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:54.150
  • happen, and how close they were
  • 00:22:54.150 --> 00:22:57.100
  • to destruction, how, "At any
  • 00:22:57.230 --> 00:23:00.250
  • moment all of this could fall
  • 00:23:00.250 --> 00:23:02.190
  • apart, and we could all die."
  • 00:23:02.260 --> 00:23:05.260
  • That's what life is like.
  • 00:23:06.120 --> 00:23:09.120
  • I don't care how blessed you
  • 00:23:09.120 --> 00:23:10.130
  • are.
  • 00:23:10.130 --> 00:23:12.010
  • You are also threatened.
  • 00:23:13.100 --> 00:23:16.100
  • If you can live with the threat,
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:22.220
  • if you can live every day
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:26.020
  • knowing you might die and know
  • 00:23:27.210 --> 00:23:30.210
  • You understand what I'm saying
  • 00:23:37.250 --> 00:23:38.200
  • to you?
  • 00:23:38.200 --> 00:23:39.290
  • If you can know it and still
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:41.180
  • live, if you can know it could
  • 00:23:41.180 --> 00:23:44.030
  • fall apart at any moment and
  • 00:23:44.030 --> 00:23:45.150
  • keep on walking, if you can walk
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:48.230
  • while they talk about you, if
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:52.000
  • you can walk while they despise
  • 00:23:52.000 --> 00:23:53.090
  • you, if you can walk while
  • 00:23:53.090 --> 00:23:55.200
  • others faint and fall apart, if
  • 00:23:55.200 --> 00:23:58.070
  • you can just stay on track--all
  • 00:23:58.070 --> 00:24:00.260
  • the children of Israel had to do
  • 00:24:00.260 --> 00:24:03.120
  • to get through the Red Sea was
  • 00:24:03.120 --> 00:24:05.120
  • - Bishop Jakes: I'm walking by
  • 00:24:27.010 --> 00:24:27.200
  • faith, not by sight.
  • 00:24:27.200 --> 00:24:30.170
  • If I looked at it I'd give up,
  • 00:24:30.170 --> 00:24:33.040
  • if I looked at it I would quit,
  • 00:24:33.040 --> 00:24:35.190
  • if I looked at it I would faint,
  • 00:24:35.190 --> 00:24:38.120
  • but I'm walking by faith, not by

  • sight.
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:42.230
  • And every step I take I'm
  • 00:24:42.230 --> 00:24:44.220
  • getting closer to my
  • 00:24:44.220 --> 00:24:46.100
  • destination, closer to my
  • 00:24:46.100 --> 00:24:48.230
  • destination, closer to my

  • destination.
  • 00:24:51.100 --> 00:24:52.230
  • And when I got about 50 I looked
  • 00:24:52.230 --> 00:24:54.120
  • back and said, "Devil, if you
  • 00:24:54.120 --> 00:24:56.280
  • was gonna kill me you should
  • 00:24:56.280 --> 00:24:59.070
  • have done it a long time ago,

  • I'm too close."
  • 00:25:07.020 --> 00:25:09.220
  • He said, "Don't you hear what
  • 00:25:09.220 --> 00:25:11.250
  • they say?"
  • 00:25:11.250 --> 00:25:12.270
