  • wife, Sarah, ministered the Word of God to you on the
  • 00:00:33.110 --> 00:00:37.010
  • broadcast. It was powerful teaching on living a legacy and
  • 00:00:37.020 --> 00:00:42.060
  • staying connected to the family of faith. Now they're back on
  • 00:00:42.070 --> 00:00:46.030

  • know Jeremy, you say, Hey, Jeremy, man, he does all the
  • 00:00:50.100 --> 00:00:53.020
  • closes and stuff, but let me tell you about this young man I
  • 00:00:53.030 --> 00:00:55.290
  • have learned from him. He's been in the ministry all of
  • 00:00:56.000 --> 00:00:58.230
  • his life, his mother and daddy are George and Terri
  • 00:00:58.240 --> 00:01:01.200

  • me to hear them teach and preach the Word.
  • 00:01:10.210 --> 00:01:13.160
  • JEREMY: Hi, we're Jeremy and Sarah Pearsons and we're so
  • 00:01:14.170 --> 00:01:16.190
  • thankful to be with you today on the believers voice of victory
  • 00:01:16.200 --> 00:01:19.040
  • broadcast. We've had a great time all last week on the
  • 00:01:19.050 --> 00:01:22.160
  • broadcast, Monday and Tuesday so far we're going to get right
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:25.110
  • back into the Word of God today. We are so thankful for the
  • 00:01:25.120 --> 00:01:27.280
  • opportunity to spend this time with you and I'm glad that
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:30.270
  • you're taking the time, putting the Word of God first place in
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:33.210
  • your life. When you do that, when you honor God by putting
  • 00:01:33.220 --> 00:01:37.010
  • his Word first, he honors you and you know healing in your
  • 00:01:37.020 --> 00:01:40.240
  • body is him honoring you and providing for you and for your
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:44.180
  • family. That's him honoring you and that's his response to you
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:48.000
  • honoring him. If you've missed any of the broadcast leading up
  • 00:01:48.010 --> 00:01:51.090
  • to this so far, go to kcm.org and get caught up with us. We've
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:55.210
  • been talking a lot about what it means to raise a family in the
  • 00:01:55.220 --> 00:01:59.030
  • house of faith and this is a very interesting time for Sarah
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:02.190
  • and I to be here and to be talking to you right now because
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:04.240
  • we've been, we've been out of crossroads in our life and our
  • 00:02:04.250 --> 00:02:08.000
  • ministry for for some time now and we're getting ready to take
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:10.220
  • a next step, a big step. And we are launching legacy church.
  • 00:02:10.230 --> 00:02:15.170
  • This is our own church. We're moving our family, we're moving
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:18.220
  • our ministry to Colorado. It's been a dream in our hearts for a
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:22.260
  • long time. And these are some of the things that we've been
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:25.150
  • talking about on this broadcast. And these things are not just
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:29.100
  • significant for us and where we're at at this time. But I
  • 00:02:29.110 --> 00:02:31.210
  • believe there'll be a blessing to you. And while you're there
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:34.030
  • at kcm.org getting caught up on all the broadcast, uh, take a
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:37.140
  • look at the notes that go right along with these messages.
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:40.140
  • kcm.org/notes that'll take you right to the page where you can
  • 00:02:40.150 --> 00:02:43.280
  • download the notes from these broadcast, uh, study along with
  • 00:02:43.290 --> 00:02:48.030
  • this as we go. Share them with other people. Do what it takes
  • 00:02:48.040 --> 00:02:51.090
  • to get these Words and these truths and this revelation down
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:56.080
  • on the inside of you. And when you do, when the Word of God
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:59.030
  • quits, just being something you've heard and it becomes
  • 00:02:59.040 --> 00:03:01.240
  • something you know, then you can't be talked out of it just
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:05.040
  • by hearing something else. But now you know it. And, and that's
  • 00:03:05.050 --> 00:03:08.260
  • really why these resources exist. It's for you to get the
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:13.040
  • Word of God into your life in such a way that you can't be
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:16.010
  • talked out of it anymore. It takes root. It sprouts up. It
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:20.100
  • bears fruit, Amen. And your life becomes an example of what our
  • 00:03:20.110 --> 00:03:25.110
  • good God can do in the lives of anybody who will take him at his
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:29.170
  • Word. Amen. Thank you Lord. Father, we come before your Word
  • 00:03:29.180 --> 00:03:32.230
  • again today with eyes wide open, ears wide open, hearts wide open
  • 00:03:32.240 --> 00:03:37.120
  • to receive, to see, hear, and understand good things from you.
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:40.120
  • We ask you for your help in this as we ministered these truths
  • 00:03:40.130 --> 00:03:44.030
  • from your Word, lead us and guide us by your Spirit and
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:47.050
  • Father, I pray over everybody watching and listening to these
  • 00:03:47.060 --> 00:03:49.190
  • broadcast right now. I asked that you'd take these Words,
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:52.080
  • root them down deep on the inside, caused them to take root
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:56.030
  • in their lives and sprout up and bear fruit that proves how good
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:04:00.070
  • you are, we give you praise and thanks for the good work you've
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:03.070
  • begun. We call you faithful to finish it in Jesus name. Amen.
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:07.030
  • Amen. Well for the last couple of days we've been looking at
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:10.090
  • Galatians chapter six specifically verse 10 that says,
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:15.070
  • therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:17.110
  • all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
  • 00:04:17.120 --> 00:04:21.180
  • That's the house we are a part of. That's the house you want to
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:25.230
  • be a part of. If you aren't, that's the family of God. And
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:29.090
  • again, Christianity is not a religion. It's a father and his
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:32.240
  • family. That's who we are. We're part of the father's family. But
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:37.070
  • when we're talking about the household of faith, we're not
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:39.210
  • just talking about, uh, just people who are born again,
  • 00:04:39.220 --> 00:04:44.120
  • that's a good thing. But I'm talking specifically about
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:46.260
  • people who have taken that same truth, that they were born again
  • 00:04:46.270 --> 00:04:51.090
  • by and they live their lives by it. What truth? What, what
  • 00:04:51.100 --> 00:04:56.100
  • principle were you born again by? Well, you believed in your
  • 00:04:56.110 --> 00:04:59.130
  • heart and you spoke with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and you
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:05:03.160
  • were saved that's what the Scripture says in the book of
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:05.160
  • Romans Chapter 10. Well you take that same principle and if
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:09.110
  • you're going to live by the faith that you're born again by,
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:12.010
  • you apply that to every day, you believe in your heart, you say
  • 00:05:12.020 --> 00:05:15.060
  • with your mouth. That's the principle of faith. And that's
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:17.280
  • one of the things that makes this house different than any
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:22.290
  • other house. And Sarah, that's what we're dealing with. These
  • 00:05:23.000 --> 00:05:25.290
  • distinguishing things that differentiate the house of faith
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:29.060
  • from every other house in the world. And you, you, you learn
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:34.010
  • to pick up on it. You learn to be aware of it. I remember one
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:40.150
  • time when we were living in that first little house, uh, we
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:43.160
  • couldn't have been married more a year or two. Um, we had some
  • 00:05:43.170 --> 00:05:47.200
  • things go wrong with our Internet service I think. So I
  • 00:05:47.210 --> 00:05:50.000
  • had to call the Internet provider and I'll go through
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:53.150
  • their maze of option one and two and all that and finally get
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:57.010
  • connected to somebody. And uh, the guy answered the phone and
  • 00:05:57.020 --> 00:06:01.060
  • he said his name, the company you work for and so on. And, uh,
  • 00:06:01.070 --> 00:06:04.110
  • uh, he said, who must speaking with, I said, gave him my name
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:07.190
  • and he said, how are you doing today? I said, I'm doing well,
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:10.000
  • how are you? And he said, oh, I'll just living in the victory.
  • 00:06:10.010 --> 00:06:12.180
  • I thought living in the victory, I said, is that this gotta be a
  • 00:06:12.190 --> 00:06:18.240
  • faith guy? I said, man, living in the victory, you sound like a
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:21.150
  • faith guy. And he's like, Oh yeah, absolutely. And Man, we
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:24.110
  • struck up this conversation right then and there just cause
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:27.070
  • I learned to pick up on not just the Words, but the tone. Faith
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:32.120
  • has a tone and you're right. It's the Spirit behind it. If we
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:35.290
  • got to talking and it didn't take long to get around. You
  • 00:06:36.000 --> 00:06:40.180
  • know, I work at Kenneth Copeland ministries. Actually, that's my
  • 00:06:40.190 --> 00:06:42.230
  • family. That's my grandparents. He's like, are you kidding me?
  • 00:06:42.240 --> 00:06:44.260
  • Are you kidding me? He said, I've got this, the KCM calendar
  • 00:06:44.270 --> 00:06:48.240
  • on my wall right in front of me right now. I was like, oh,
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:51.180
  • really? We'll turn a month so-and-so. That's me and my
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:53.250
  • family. He's like, oh, are you kidding me? And this guy? The
  • 00:06:53.260 --> 00:06:58.140
  • Lord really used that to help me. He said, you know, no matter
  • 00:06:58.150 --> 00:07:01.020
  • how alone you start to feel in this life and walk of faith, he
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:04.280
  • said, don't, don't feel alone. I got people everywhere. The guy
  • 00:07:04.290 --> 00:07:08.280
  • working on my internet is a house of faith, you know? SARAH:
  • 00:07:08.290 --> 00:07:13.010
  • I think that's good what you said about it being the, of
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:15.050
  • course the scripture tells us the Spirit of faith, but it's
  • 00:07:15.060 --> 00:07:18.180
  • really something you can sense. Not just saying, oh yeah, that
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:23.070
  • person has a Spirit of faith or that person has a Spirit of
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:25.080
  • faith. It's something that you sense and in an atmosphere you
  • 00:07:25.090 --> 00:07:28.040
  • sense it and that's why it's so important for us to get together
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:30.160
  • with other people that have a Spirit of faith and come
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:33.250
  • together in an atmosphere of faith and not be just on our own
  • 00:07:33.260 --> 00:07:37.040
  • all the time. That's why we always go every year to
  • 00:07:37.050 --> 00:07:40.280
  • conferences and places that we believe our home church where
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:44.210
  • there is a Spirit of faith in that sanctuary because when we
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:48.040
  • come together with other believers, it is strong in there
  • 00:07:48.050 --> 00:07:50.260
  • and that faith, that combined corporate faith is powerful. And
  • 00:07:50.270 --> 00:07:55.290
  • it's a force to be reckoned with. I mean, you cannot, you
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:58.160
  • can't even, you better think twice before you bring something
  • 00:07:58.170 --> 00:08:01.240
  • against something so tangible and real. That Spirit of faith,
  • 00:08:01.250 --> 00:08:05.020
  • um, in the sanctuary. And so I just, even in our families, that
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:10.000
  • Spirit of faith, when me and you are getting together, how many
  • 00:08:10.010 --> 00:08:13.200
  • times have we seen miracles with the prayer of agreement? Because
  • 00:08:13.210 --> 00:08:16.290
  • I have a Spirit of faith. You have a Spirit of faith. And when
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:20.010
  • we get together on something, it is powerful. And we've seen
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:23.170
  • miracle after miracle in our lives and our finances, our
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:27.130
  • families or children, their healing. JEREMY: Absolutely.
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:30.260
  • Yeah. And that is the motivation that Sarah and I are taking this
  • 00:08:30.270 --> 00:08:34.250
  • next step in our lives and ministry, Launching Legacy
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:37.250
  • Church coming later this year. That's what were determined
  • 00:08:37.260 --> 00:08:40.280
  • that, that, that church Spirit is going to be, I mean, I'm
  • 00:08:40.290 --> 00:08:46.110
  • determined that somebody can walk into that place and being
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:48.220
  • there a minute and say, there's faith here. SARAH: Well, think
  • 00:08:48.230 --> 00:08:52.130
  • about all the people that are coming with us. We've had
  • 00:08:52.140 --> 00:08:54.270
  • couples and families from all over the place. Have come to us
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:58.240
  • and said, the Lord's dealing with us to come and help you and
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:01.250
  • to come be a part. This is even before we announced the church
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:04.040
  • and we started to get a clue last year. Wait, there's got to
  • 00:09:04.050 --> 00:09:07.010
  • be a church because these people are about to pick up their lives
  • 00:09:07.020 --> 00:09:09.110
  • and move and come and help us leave their churches, leave
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:12.070
  • where they're at. And we're like, Lord, what are you doing
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:14.130
  • here? Well, if you've got that many people that are stepping
  • 00:09:14.140 --> 00:09:17.130
  • out in faith, all of us, I mean, I think we've got almost 40
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:20.160
  • people with just kids that are just a part of this launch team.
  • 00:09:20.170 --> 00:09:23.100
  • That's not even everybody that's coming, not just the ones we
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:25.120
  • know about, but think about it. I mean, you've got all these
  • 00:09:25.130 --> 00:09:29.010
  • people that are leaving their homes, leaving their families,
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:31.170
  • leaving everything to go follow Jesus and come into one place,
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:36.150
  • stepping out by faith. Half of them don't have a job yet.
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:39.090
  • Stepping out. Think about what's going to happen in that. Think
  • 00:09:39.100 --> 00:09:42.260
  • about what's going to happen in that sanctuary when we all get
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:46.200
  • together and God has done miracle after miracle for each
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:49.240
  • one of us provided jobs, provided homes, provided,
  • 00:09:49.250 --> 00:09:52.210
  • provided everything that we need, all of us are going to
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:56.110
  • have a story that gives God glory and it's just going to be
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:09:59.090
  • something special. What if you know it's one thing for me and
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:02.130
  • you to do that? It's another thing for 40 people to pick up
  • 00:10:02.140 --> 00:10:05.000
  • their lives and by faith step out just like Abraham did and go
  • 00:10:05.010 --> 00:10:08.210
  • and step out when they don't know where they're going, every,
  • 00:10:08.220 --> 00:10:11.190
  • they don't know all the details, but they go, that's that same
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:15.020
  • Spirit of faith and think about all these people coming
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:17.060
  • together. This place is going to be a powerhouse. JEREMY:
  • 00:10:17.070 --> 00:10:19.010
  • Literally affect the atmosphere of the room. Yeah, I mean you'll
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:23.190
  • be able to sense it like you're talking about and that Spirit is
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:26.040
  • something that you can sense. Just the same way you can step
  • 00:10:26.050 --> 00:10:28.280
  • into an environment. You can step into a place where maybe
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:33.070
  • moments before you got there, people were just at each other's
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:36.040
  • throat and fighting and nagging at one another and even if when
  • 00:10:36.050 --> 00:10:39.230
  • the front door open, everybody was all smiles. If you are
  • 00:10:39.240 --> 00:10:42.110
  • Spiritually aware at all, you can step into that and you can
  • 00:10:42.120 --> 00:10:45.180
  • sense that there's been strife there. It's these things are
  • 00:10:45.190 --> 00:10:49.280
  • tangible. They really are. Well, the same way that that's
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:52.240
  • tangible. This Spirit of faith is, is very tangible and even if
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:57.070
  • somebody doesn't know exactly what all to say about are the
  • 00:10:57.080 --> 00:11:00.240
  • right Words to put around it, I'm believing that this house of
  • 00:11:00.250 --> 00:11:04.040
  • faith that the Lord calls calling us to launch in and to
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:06.260
  • start. Somebody can step into it for the first time and say, I
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:09.280
  • don't know what it is, but there's something different here
  • 00:11:09.290 --> 00:11:12.230
  • and we'll be quick to tell him his faith in Jesus. This is what
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:16.120
  • it'll do. It'll put a smile on your face and to put hope in
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:18.230
  • your voice. It'll put hope in your heart. Faith in Jesus and
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:22.220
  • it's like you've always said, faith in him will give you a
  • 00:11:22.230 --> 00:11:25.100
  • story that will give him glory and this is another one of those
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:30.030
  • things that I believe defines us, differentiates us. We, we
  • 00:11:30.040 --> 00:11:34.180
  • saw it on yesterday's broadcast when we were looking in Second
  • 00:11:34.190 --> 00:11:38.190
  • Corinthians chapter four, chapter five all everywhere you
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:43.070
  • see the Word, we come up, we believe therefore we speak. We
  • 00:11:43.080 --> 00:11:47.170
  • do not lose heart. We do not look at the things that are
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:50.170
  • seen. What you're identifying there is this is what goes on in
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:54.020
  • this house. Even when it's not going on in any other house
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:57.170
  • anywhere else in this house. We believe therefore we speak in
  • 00:11:57.180 --> 00:12:01.280
  • this house. We do not lose heart in this house. We don't look at
  • 00:12:01.290 --> 00:12:06.140
  • the things that are seen in this house. We look at the things
  • 00:12:06.150 --> 00:12:08.180
  • that are unseen and that's different. That's really
  • 00:12:08.190 --> 00:12:12.090
  • different than it is everywhere else, but in this house, I don't
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:16.150
  • care if everybody else gets to walk by sight. I don't care if
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:21.090
  • everybody else gets to live by what they see and what they
  • 00:12:21.100 --> 00:12:24.110
  • feel. Can you hear your heavenly father saying this in this
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:27.040
  • house, in my house, we walk by faith and not by sight. This is
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:34.180
  • one of those things that defines us and differentiates us from
  • 00:12:34.190 --> 00:12:40.030
  • everybody else. It's the determination to walk by faith.
  • 00:12:40.040 --> 00:12:42.290
  • And so I believe we're talking about the launch of this, this
  • 00:12:43.000 --> 00:12:47.100
  • church and this next step of ministry for us and the people
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:49.250
  • come in with us. But you know what? I think it had to happen
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:52.140
  • this way. We, we had to, every one of us come to this
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:57.270
  • crossroads and decide, am I walking forward in faith or
  • 00:12:57.280 --> 00:13:02.250
  • backwards in fear? And I am, I hadn't thought of it until you
  • 00:13:02.260 --> 00:13:06.200
  • said it, but it's going to be a room full of people. And if we
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:09.160
  • got nothing else, we've got our faith. And we don't know
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:13.070
  • anything else. We know that he's good and he's faithful to his
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:16.180
  • Word. And we're expecting some glory stories. SARAH: I just see
  • 00:13:16.190 --> 00:13:21.240
  • people lined up at the front of the church going one by one,
  • 00:13:21.250 --> 00:13:24.060
  • telling what God's done for him, how he blessed him with this
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:27.070
  • house, how he blessed it, blessed him with this job, how
  • 00:13:27.080 --> 00:13:29.260
  • he just poured out his goodness on each one of them for stepping
  • 00:13:29.270 --> 00:13:33.010
  • out and following him. JEREMY: There's one couple I'm thinking
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:35.110
  • of right now that's coming from another state and they came to
  • 00:13:35.120 --> 00:13:38.060
  • us months ago and said, you know, the Lord's had you guys on
  • 00:13:38.070 --> 00:13:40.200
  • our hearts and we felt like we're supposed to help you. And
  • 00:13:40.210 --> 00:13:42.180
  • we said, well, okay, uh, we're not hiring, you know, we didn't
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:47.250
  • promise a job to anybody or anything like that. They said,
  • 00:13:47.260 --> 00:13:50.110
  • it's okay. We're not expecting that. And they began right then
  • 00:13:50.120 --> 00:13:53.180
  • putting things in motion, talk to their leadership. They work
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:57.070
  • for another church, great church and they'd been there a long
  • 00:13:57.080 --> 00:14:00.220
  • time, but they're just taking steps to follow the leading of
  • 00:14:00.230 --> 00:14:05.020
  • the Holy Spirit. And, uh, the time came just not long ago,
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:09.170
  • their last day at work and you know, that's, you know, they may
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:13.130
  • have a party for you or something, but there's no
  • 00:14:13.140 --> 00:14:15.280
  • paycheck tomorrow. But he and I were talking recently and I, I
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:19.050
  • to say just in the months since they decided to step out an
  • 00:14:19.060 --> 00:14:24.290
  • extra, this is outside their paycheck. I want to say it was
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:29.020
  • somewhere between an extra 15 and $20.000 has come into them.
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:34.050
  • And I told him too, I said, man, listen to me. All you have to do
  • 00:14:34.060 --> 00:14:39.010
  • is put vision out there. People love vision. They want to be a
  • 00:14:39.020 --> 00:14:44.110
  • part of vision. Faith inspires people. They want to be a part
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:48.100
  • of it. And they didn't go asking anybody for anything. All they
  • 00:14:48.110 --> 00:14:52.170
  • said was, we believe the Lord's calling us to help the Pearsons
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:55.250
  • and that's what we're going to go do. And people have been
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:59.030
  • almost knocking each other over going, let me be a part of that
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:01.230
  • and let me be a part of that. Somebody the other day put
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:04.050
  • $5.000 in their hand. Let me be a part of that. I'm telling you
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:07.210
  • there's a difference. People recognize the difference in this
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:12.030
  • house. And I know that there've been other people in their lives
  • 00:15:12.040 --> 00:15:15.120
  • that have come to them and said, well are you crazy? How can
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:18.110
  • you... well he was telling me about this conversation he had
  • 00:15:18.120 --> 00:15:21.140
  • with a friend of his on the phone and he's like, well do you
  • 00:15:21.150 --> 00:15:23.140
  • have, do you have a house out there? And, and our friend just
  • 00:15:23.150 --> 00:15:26.150
  • said by faith I do. He's like, no, really tell me do you have a
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:29.290
  • house? He said, I'm telling you what I want to say about this
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:32.150
  • and I have a house because I was like, okay, fine, whatever. I
  • 00:15:32.160 --> 00:15:35.250
  • get it. But by the end of the conversation our friend was
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:40.130
  • unwilling to bend what he was going to say to make it make
  • 00:15:40.140 --> 00:15:44.240
  • sense to somebody else. I'm sorry. That's just what it's
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:47.160
  • like in this house. We believe therefore we speak. SARAH: Don't
  • 00:15:47.170 --> 00:15:50.200
  • you think that along with walking by faith, people, part
  • 00:15:50.210 --> 00:15:55.030
  • of being in the house of faith is being led by the Spirit?
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:57.080
  • JEREMY: Absolutely. SARAH: And I'm thinking about how this
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:16:00.080
  • whole thing, to me, the whole move and picking up and leaving
  • 00:16:00.090 --> 00:16:03.090
  • everything going on this adventure with God, I really
  • 00:16:03.100 --> 00:16:07.050
  • believe that people with a Spirit of faith have a Spirit of
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:12.290
  • adventure, and they are going to step out. When God whispers go.
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:18.110
  • They're going to, they're going to take risks when others play
  • 00:16:18.120 --> 00:16:21.230
  • it safe. They are going to live life on the edge of their seats,
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:24.170
  • ready to hear God speak the next thing to their Spirit. And like
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:28.230
  • this couple of you're talking about, they are so stirred up
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:31.120
  • and excited. Do they see it? Why do they see in the natural that
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:35.060
  • could make them be excited? They have no house that they're going
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:38.170
  • to, they have no job that they're going to but their
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:40.270
  • Spirits are so stirred up. They said they feel like it's
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:42.260
  • Christmas every day cause they're so excited about what
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:45.250
  • God's doing and this move and going. And I'm thinking about
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:48.120
  • this scripture in Romans chapter eight, and it's in the message
  • 00:16:48.130 --> 00:16:51.180
  • and it says, this resurrection life you receive from God is not
  • 00:16:51.190 --> 00:16:57.000
  • a timid grave tending life. It's adventurously expectant, um,
  • 00:16:57.010 --> 00:17:02.240
  • greeting God with a childlike, what's next, Papa. God's Spirit
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:09.010
  • touches our Spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:14.120
  • he is and we know who we are, father and children's and we
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:20.220
  • know we are going to get what's coming to us an inheritance. We
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:25.140
  • go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we know, if we
  • 00:17:25.150 --> 00:17:28.080
  • go through those hard times, we're certainly, I'm, I don't
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:31.170
  • have the rest of this on here, I don't think. Um, but basically
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:34.110
  • the, the one part I wanted to get to is we know who he is. We
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:38.060
  • know who we are. We're his children, he's our father. And
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:41.260
  • when we're always waiting for his Spirit to touch our Spirit
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:46.290
  • and to confirm that with us and to show us, here's what's next,
  • 00:17:47.000 --> 00:17:51.040
  • go on this adventure with me. I just believe that God is, is um,
  • 00:17:51.050 --> 00:17:54.210
  • I believe that he is the great adventurer. And when just about
  • 00:17:54.220 --> 00:18:00.140
  • when we get comfortable in life, he's ready to do something new
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:04.180
  • and exciting. He's always ready to say, hey, you want to go do
  • 00:18:04.190 --> 00:18:08.160
  • this with me? You want to step out, you want to go, you....
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.200
  • JEREMY: Want to see something cool? SARAH: You want to see
  • 00:18:10.210 --> 00:18:12.140
  • something cool and he's always ready for the next great
  • 00:18:12.150 --> 00:18:15.270
  • adventure. And I think that is a deep in us. There's this fire in
  • 00:18:15.280 --> 00:18:19.130
  • us to go after and do this thing. We've only got one life
  • 00:18:19.140 --> 00:18:23.020
  • to live and it's worth it to be in the perfect will of God for
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:27.000
  • your life to go after when he calls you to get up and go to
  • 00:18:27.010 --> 00:18:30.000
  • go. He'll take care of you. JEREMY: What she's reading from
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:33.020
  • Romans eight and the King James New King James, verse 14 says,
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:35.250
  • for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the
  • 00:18:35.260 --> 00:18:41.230
  • sons of God. So we're talking about things that define us and
  • 00:18:41.240 --> 00:18:45.250
  • characterize us as his family and distinguish us from the
  • 00:18:45.260 --> 00:18:50.140
  • other family that's in this world. And one that one of the
  • 00:18:50.150 --> 00:18:53.230
  • defining characteristics of a child of God is that we are led
  • 00:18:53.240 --> 00:18:57.160
  • not by sight, not by what we feel, not by money, not by other
  • 00:18:57.170 --> 00:19:02.220
  • people, but by his Spirit. And what Sarah is saying about the
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:07.110
  • Spirit of adventure is absolutely right. Remember when
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:09.280
  • we talked about what the psalmist said, how deep calls
  • 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:12.240
  • unto deep, we talked about that you and I some months ago, how
  • 00:19:12.250 --> 00:19:17.190
  • anybody, any adventurer, any explorer, even somebody who's
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:24.090
  • gone places, nobody's ever been before, even somebody who's gone
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:27.220
  • to depths dive to depths that nobody's ever been before. As
  • 00:19:27.230 --> 00:19:32.070
  • soon as they come up and everybody's celebrating, and
  • 00:19:32.080 --> 00:19:34.200
  • what'd you see in, what was it like? You know, you celebrate
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:37.220
  • that and you talk about it, but there's this thing on the inside
  • 00:19:37.230 --> 00:19:40.080
  • of them that's going, I wonder what's deeper. I wonder what's
  • 00:19:40.090 --> 00:19:44.090
  • deeper. I wonder what is just beyond that last step I took and
  • 00:19:44.100 --> 00:19:48.090
  • that same Spirit. You're absolutely right. It's in us
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:51.260
  • because that's what's in God. There's this deep that's calling
  • 00:19:51.270 --> 00:19:55.180
  • unto you and as deep as you've been before, there's a deeper,
  • 00:19:55.190 --> 00:19:59.130
  • still yet to go. As high as you've been in God before there,
  • 00:19:59.140 --> 00:20:02.260
  • there's higher yet to go, but you're going to have to live
  • 00:20:02.270 --> 00:20:05.160
  • with that sense and Spirit of adventure. And, and step out
  • 00:20:05.170 --> 00:20:10.180
  • into you. We call it the unknown. Really. It's just the
  • 00:20:10.190 --> 00:20:14.090
  • unseen. Because you can know. Yeah, you can know. You can
  • 00:20:14.100 --> 00:20:18.090
  • know. Maybe you can't describe with, you know, all the details
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.270
  • of the future, but you do know this. In God it's good. You do
  • 00:20:20.280 --> 00:20:25.110
  • know this, that mercy waits for you because his mercy endures
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:28.260
  • forever. So there's mercy in the future for you. There's grace
  • 00:20:28.270 --> 00:20:31.260
  • out there waiting for you. There's abundance out there
  • 00:20:31.270 --> 00:20:34.260
  • waiting for you. And when nobody else will take a step into the
  • 00:20:34.270 --> 00:20:39.010
  • future because they're gripped and riddled with fear of the
  • 00:20:39.020 --> 00:20:42.200
  • unknown, you step into it cause it's not unknown. It's just
  • 00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:45.260
  • unseen. It's just unseen. And that's what makes us different.
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:50.150
  • Yeah. So what, what makes us the house of faith in this house We
  • 00:20:50.160 --> 00:20:54.200
  • put the Word first. We all live by bread alone, but by every
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:58.090
  • Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. In this house we
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:21:02.200
  • walk by faith and not by sight and in this house we are led by
  • 00:21:02.210 --> 00:21:08.190
  • the Spirit of God. These things make us different. Yeah, these
  • 00:21:08.200 --> 00:21:12.170
  • things make you, let's just be honest, kind of strange. They
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:17.050
  • make you a little bit different. You're not normal. Okay. If your
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:21.080
  • family hadn't told you that yet, let me be the first and
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:23.140
  • foremost. You're not normal but listen to me. Normal out there
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:27.160
  • is broke and sick and depressed and dying. You don't want to be
  • 00:21:27.170 --> 00:21:33.190
  • normal. Do you? Come on, let's be strange together here in this
  • 00:21:33.200 --> 00:21:38.090
  • house we're different. It's a night and day difference in this
  • 00:21:38.100 --> 00:21:41.220
  • house. Word comes first. In this house we walk by faith. In this
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:45.000
  • house we are led by his Spirit. There's more of these that Sarah

  • grew up in, the Copeland House, and even the House that we have
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:06.230
  • now raising these kids. Look, none of them are perfect, but
  • 00:22:06.240 --> 00:22:09.260
  • there are some, there are some things you want to get right and
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:13.020
  • these are the things we're dealing with right now and we're
