  • 00:01:05.090 --> 00:01:08.070
  • Yeah.That's where wisdom is. That's where God is. That's how
  • 00:01:08.080 --> 00:01:12.010

  • your heart by going in your ear, in your eye. You don't get this
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:37.090
  • just by wishing for it. You don't get it just because your
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:42.130
  • preacher, your pastors got it. You get it because you actually
  • 00:01:42.140 --> 00:01:45.260
  • use your own eyes and ears in this endeavor. The words of God,
  • 00:01:45.270 --> 00:01:51.090
  • keep them. Let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in the
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:55.080
  • midst of your heart. You don't forget the words of God. You
  • 00:01:55.090 --> 00:01:57.110
  • know you can't remember all the words of God. You have to
  • 00:01:57.120 --> 00:02:00.070
  • consume it daily. You know I can. I get excited on the inside
  • 00:02:00.080 --> 00:02:04.210
  • about the word. I mean it's like something happens down there. I
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:08.230
  • can almost feel it physically. I get stirred up. You're leaving
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:12.180
  • here. Start up with the word of faith. Now keep yourself start
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:17.020
  • up, that way. Just the same way by keeping the word of God going
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:20.290
  • in your eyes and in your ears, the word they are life. The
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:23.210
  • words of God are life onto them that find them and health to all
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:33.050
  • their flesh. Now that means anything today that's wrong in
  • 00:02:33.060 --> 00:02:38.000
  • your flesh. The word of God is laugh to you. The spirit of God
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:43.260
  • is present to heal you today. Your faith rises up within you
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:48.210
  • to receive. God is a good God. He wants you well. He's always
  • 00:02:48.220 --> 00:02:52.140
  • wanted people. Well. Jesus went about doing good healing. All
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:57.010
  • that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him.
  • 00:02:57.020 --> 00:03:01.270
  • Healing who? Healing all . Jesus is the same yesterday, today,
  • 00:03:01.280 --> 00:03:08.040
  • and forever. Hallelujah. He is the same. He still wants to heal
  • 00:03:08.050 --> 00:03:13.140
  • every person in this place, every person watching on the
  • 00:03:13.150 --> 00:03:17.290
  • internet, everyone this ought to settle it right here. Bless the
  • 00:03:18.000 --> 00:03:21.140
  • lord oh my soul and all that is within me. Bless His Holy name.
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:26.020
  • There he is talking good about God again. Bless the Lord oh my
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:30.130
  • soul and forget not all his benefits. Say it with me, who

  • forgive us. All diseases! Who healeth all thy diseases who
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:42.120
  • forgives all the uniquities. I said it wrong. Who heals all
  • 00:03:42.130 --> 00:03:45.250

  • today. Who redeems your life from destruction. That's
  • 00:03:50.190 --> 00:03:57.250
  • long life and even in this long life, he crowns you with loving
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:04:04.210
  • kindness and tender mercies who satisfies your mouth with good
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:10.050
  • things so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles.
  • 00:04:10.060 --> 00:04:16.020
  • Hallelujah. Glory to God. Thank you Jesus. Surely Isaiah 53 four
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:25.170
  • says in the amplified, Surely this is sure he hath borne our
  • 00:04:25.180 --> 00:04:30.070
  • griefs, which means sickness, weakness, and distresses and
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:36.150
  • carried our sorrows and pains. If you're here today and you've
  • 00:04:36.160 --> 00:04:40.100
  • been stricken with grief, you've lost a loved one or whatever is
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:44.030
  • grieving you. Maybe you lost something natural, in the
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:47.110
  • natural realm. Grief and death go together. Death comes and
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:52.270
  • then grief comes to get a place in your life and in your family.
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:58.210
  • Grief is an enemy. It steals, it kills. It destroys your life.
  • 00:04:58.220 --> 00:05:04.120
  • It's a deadly emotion. You know somebody, would lose somebody in
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:11.250
  • their family and then they'll get in grief and get sad and
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:16.130
  • sorrowful and down and depressed where there's no life coming out
  • 00:05:16.140 --> 00:05:21.080
  • of you. When you're depressed, there's no life force coming out
  • 00:05:21.090 --> 00:05:26.050
  • of you where the word of God is coming out of you in life.
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:28.220
  • You're not depressed. And what happens? Well, the loved one,
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:33.290
  • maybe it's a husband or a wife, the one that's left then let's
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:37.180
  • grief come in and grief moves in and the next thing you know,
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:41.090
  • that person sick doctor called, where are you here today? Is
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:44.240
  • that true? Do you find that in your practice, that death will
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:49.070
  • come in a family, then grief will move in and then those
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:51.160
  • people get sick and die too young? A lot of times it's just
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:54.240
  • the way it is. It says it's the spirit. Now when we, when you
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:06:00.290
  • have that in your family, and we've had some in our family,
  • 00:06:01.000 --> 00:06:06.290
  • not in our children, but in our family. My brother, my niece
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:11.140
  • were both killed in car accidents young at a young age.
  • 00:06:11.150 --> 00:06:17.170
  • And we do this in our family. We know, I mean, you know,
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:23.210
  • you're going to be sad alright.It's going to be sad for
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:26.250
  • you, but yet you get over on the glory side of it. Both of those
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:31.290
  • in our family, we knew went into the presence of the Lord
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:37.250
  • immediately. So really, I mean, when you're, when you, you're
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:42.120
  • gonna miss some, it's sad for you, but when you get right down
  • 00:06:42.130 --> 00:06:45.100
  • to it, what's to grieve? There. I mean, there is nothing like
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:50.000
  • being in the presence of the Lord. There's nothing like being
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:53.170
  • in heaven. There's nothing like it. The best earth could do
  • 00:06:53.180 --> 00:06:57.150
  • would be very, very dark compared to live in, in heaven.
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:07:03.120
  • And so you get over on the glory side of the thing. It's too, you
  • 00:07:03.130 --> 00:07:06.190
  • know, if you haven't resurrected them and you've, you've put
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:11.070
  • their body in the ground and their spirits in heaven, what
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:13.290
  • can you do more? Well, they would have you go on and live
  • 00:07:14.000 --> 00:07:19.110
  • your life. Uh, it would, it would be a grief to them if they
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:24.020
  • knew that because they were in heaven now and then the glory
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:28.110
  • and where it's great, wonderful. The devil was lying to you and
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:32.220
  • keeping you in grief so that you couldn't fulfill the number of
  • 00:07:32.230 --> 00:07:36.150
  • your days and do it in health and blessing. They would be sad
  • 00:07:36.160 --> 00:07:43.220
  • to know that Brother Hagan said that he, and he had more
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:49.260
  • experienced on the other side than anybody I know. But he said
  • 00:07:49.270 --> 00:07:53.190
  • that people, up there, they know what happens down here in the
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:08:00.160
  • spirit, but they don't know natural things. Like, they don't
  • 00:08:00.170 --> 00:08:05.170
  • know if you got a new car, whatever like that. But grief is
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:09.020
  • a spiritual thing. And so if we really believe what we believe,
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:13.230
  • we ought to just, we ought to be able to take that refuse to
  • 00:08:13.240 --> 00:08:20.050
  • allow grief to come upon us, do what needs to be done and walk
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:26.120
  • on in life. Grief is an enemy. It's an enemy. And the reality
  • 00:08:26.130 --> 00:08:34.060
  • of what's happening to them will be so much greater. if you won't
  • 00:08:34.070 --> 00:08:39.150
  • let grief settle in at your house. I mean, it's tough. I
  • 00:08:39.160 --> 00:08:42.090
  • know. It's tough. I mean, you know, you have certain pictures
  • 00:08:42.100 --> 00:08:45.220
  • like, like there was, both of them were car wrecks and you
  • 00:08:45.230 --> 00:08:50.150
  • have certain pictures of that come into your mind, certain
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:53.280
  • things and you remember the time that you heard this and that you
  • 00:08:53.290 --> 00:08:57.110
  • got the news and all that. But when that tries to get in, you
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:09:00.170
  • come on and you just say, no, no, I'm not having it. Grief.
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:04.280
  • I'm not having grief. My brother's in heaven. My niece is
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:09.160
  • in heaven. Your loved ones in heaven. Now you go on and finish
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:15.110
  • your courses in Jesus name. Finish your life. Don't let that
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:19.100
  • stop you. Don't let it stop you. Don't let grief come to your
  • 00:09:19.110 --> 00:09:23.050
  • house and live. That's the devil and he looks for a place to live
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:27.290
  • in grief and death traveled together so you, it's something
  • 00:09:28.000 --> 00:09:32.000
  • for you to resist in Jesus name, Jesus bore our griefs. Now do
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:37.260
  • you believe that? Well then you have to. You have to receive it.
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:42.220
  • Alright, here I am. I was reading the wrong one there he
  • 00:09:42.230 --> 00:09:47.090
  • was. Where was that about? Grace and surely he has borne our
  • 00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:52.010
  • griefs, sicknesses, weaknesses, distresses and carried our
  • 00:09:52.020 --> 00:09:59.090
  • sorrows. We don't, we are not to carry our grapes. We are not to
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:05.070
  • carry our sorrows. You have it. You deal with it. You go on with
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:11.200
  • your life. and you know, you say, well, I don't know if my
  • 00:10:11.210 --> 00:10:14.200
  • loved one was born again. Well that's right. You don't know. So
  • 00:10:14.210 --> 00:10:18.080
  • many people get born again. They wouldn't give God the time of
  • 00:10:18.090 --> 00:10:22.210
  • day until life. They face life and death. You don't know. What
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:26.270
  • do you have to do in a situation like that? You have to trust
  • 00:10:26.280 --> 00:10:30.100
  • God. You can't just dream up your own thing. You have to
  • 00:10:30.110 --> 00:10:34.110
  • trust God. Surely he has borne our griefs, sickness, weakness
  • 00:10:34.120 --> 00:10:39.290
  • in distresses and carried our sorrows and pains, yet we
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:43.010
  • considered him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted, but he was
  • 00:10:43.020 --> 00:10:47.120
  • wounded. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions. He was
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:54.260
  • bruised for our guilt and iniquities. The chastisement
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:11:00.020
  • needful to obtain our Shalom, our peace, which means
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:04.110
  • everything. Health, prosperity, salvation, deliverance and well
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:08.240
  • being was upon him and with the stripes that wounded him. We are
  • 00:11:08.250 --> 00:11:13.270
  • healed and made whole. Surely, he is borne our griefs. Surely,
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:21.000
  • he is borne our sickness in our weakness, and distress and
  • 00:11:21.010 --> 00:11:24.100
  • sorrows and surely, we don't have to bear them now. He did it
  • 00:11:24.110 --> 00:11:29.280
  • for us. Every sickness, every disease, every weakness, every
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:35.050
  • grief here in this place that includes mental problems,
  • 00:11:35.060 --> 00:11:40.150
  • depression, all kind of situation and it includes
  • 00:11:40.160 --> 00:11:43.270
  • addictions. It includes sin, immorality, anything, any kind
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:49.240
  • of life style that is a cross ways with God and you want out
  • 00:11:49.250 --> 00:11:54.240
  • of it. This is your day to go. This is your day to go free in
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:59.030
  • Jesus' name. This is your day to be healed in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:11:59.040 --> 00:12:04.290
  • This is your day to get up and walk and do what you couldn't do
  • 00:12:05.000 --> 00:12:08.020
  • before. Jesus is alive and well and he's here and He loves you.
  • 00:12:08.030 --> 00:12:16.190
  • Glory to God. If you've never made Jesus the lord of your
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:19.250
  • life, when we pray, this is your day to get born again.
  • 00:12:19.260 --> 00:12:22.100
  • Hallelujah! That's the first and the greatest step. So we're
  • 00:12:22.110 --> 00:12:27.010
  • going to pray the prayer now and we're going to receive healing.
  • 00:12:27.020 --> 00:12:32.020
  • Now when we pray, the moment we pray, you take it, you seize it.
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:41.260
  • You lay hold of it. That's what it means to receive. Amen. You
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:45.150
  • take it, you begin to do now where it's just the family here,
  • 00:12:45.160 --> 00:12:48.220
  • it would just tickle us all over. If you just jumped up and
  • 00:12:48.230 --> 00:12:52.050
  • ran around the building, we wouldn't care a bit. If you
  • 00:12:52.060 --> 00:12:55.010
  • couldn't dance, dance, if you couldn't jump, jump. If you
  • 00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:59.000
  • couldn't do your arms, do your arms. Start doing what you
  • 00:12:59.010 --> 00:13:01.180
  • couldn't do before. The presence of the Lord is here to heal and
  • 00:13:01.190 --> 00:13:07.180
  • to deliver. Now. If you're ready to pray in faith, you stand up
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:10.180
  • and we're going to pray. If you can't stand up on the outside,
  • 00:13:10.190 --> 00:13:13.150
  • stand up on the inside. In Jesus name, I want you to lift up your
  • 00:13:13.160 --> 00:13:20.000
  • hand to the Lord. Shut your eyes and pray this with all your
  • 00:13:20.010 --> 00:13:24.230
  • heart and your soul. And then at the end of the prayer, I want
  • 00:13:24.240 --> 00:13:28.190
  • you to take your healing. Receive your healing, put it in
  • 00:13:28.200 --> 00:13:34.010
  • your mouth. Let it be in your heart. From here on, this is the
  • 00:13:34.020 --> 00:13:38.000
  • day you take it. Say This, the Gospel that I've heard is the
  • 00:13:38.010 --> 00:13:46.020
  • power of God onto my salvation.I confessed Jesus Christ as Lord
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:54.050
  • over my life. Lord over my spirit, soul and body. Amen, I
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:14:05.190
  • received the power of God. To make me sound sound, whole,
  • 00:14:05.200 --> 00:14:13.070
  • delivered, saved, healed now act on the word of God and I
  • 00:14:13.080 --> 00:14:22.120
  • received the power of God, sickness, disease, and pain. I
  • 00:14:22.130 --> 00:14:30.090
  • resist you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. You are not
  • 00:14:30.100 --> 00:14:36.020
  • the will of God. Griefs I resist you in the name of Jesus! I
  • 00:14:36.030 --> 00:14:45.010
  • enforced the word of God on you. I'm not tolerate you in my life.
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:53.020
  • Leave, my presence. I'll never aloud you back, my days of
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:59.050
  • sickness and disease are over. Days of grief and sadness are
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:07.090
  • over. Days of depression are over. I am the saved. I am the

  • 00:15:18.000 --> 00:15:27.090
  • himself bore my sickness, weakness, pain and I'm free.
  • 00:15:27.100 --> 00:15:38.010
  • Sickness should no longer be Lord over me. Sin shall no
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:43.290
  • longer Lord over me. Fear shall no longer Lord over me. I been
  • 00:15:44.000 --> 00:15:52.090
  • redeemed from the curse, I received my healing and
  • 00:15:52.100 --> 00:15:57.260
  • deliverance. I proclaim my freedom. Today the Gospel is the
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:16:05.030
  • power of God onto me. To Salvation. I received the word
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:14.290
  • of God, I act on the word of God, and I'm may free in Jesus'

  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:37.210
  • MALE: Someone is traveling the wrong way and

  • Does it look like they are dead, MALE: Possibly, yes.
  • 00:16:48.190 --> 00:16:54.070
  • TIKI: On the morning of July 31st, 2011, my son was in a
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:59.210
  • wreck on his way home from work and he was hit head on by a
  • 00:16:59.220 --> 00:17:03.240
  • drunk driver. I went to the emergency room and they begin to
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:07.120
  • tell me the long list of injuries I would go in when I go
  • 00:17:07.130 --> 00:17:12.210
  • to see Kevin and pretty much just tell him, yeah, listen to
  • 00:17:12.220 --> 00:17:18.250
  • your Mama. You're not done. You have a purpose. You gotta get up
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:23.010
  • out of that bed. Tell Jesus you can't stay. and it was just
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:27.070
  • kinda pretty adamant with him. TOM: She did not let up and all
  • 00:17:27.080 --> 00:17:34.010
  • the training, all the, the things that we watched from
  • 00:17:34.020 --> 00:17:39.250
  • Brother Copeland, all of the faith was, I mean she grabbed a
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:45.000
  • hold of it and she wasn't letting go and she wouldn't let
  • 00:17:45.010 --> 00:17:48.180
  • anyone talk him negative. She wouldn't let, what are you going
  • 00:17:48.190 --> 00:17:51.080
  • to say when you go in? Uh, she was very protective. TIKI:But on
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:55.170
  • August the first 2011 at eight 57 in the morning, we went up to
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:59.140
  • hear good news cause we were trusting that God would raise
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:03.130
  • him from the dead. Um, instead we heard that he was brain dead
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:09.090
  • and I laid down and I said, Kevin, mom's not ready for you
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:12.110
  • to go. And I heard his voice audibly. I thought he woke up.
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:17.040
  • He said, mom, it's too painful. Those were the words that are
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:22.160
  • heard. And I stood up expecting to see his eyes open. And when I
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:29.140
  • realized that he hadn't woke up, I knew that I was hearing from
  • 00:18:29.150 --> 00:18:34.000
  • heaven. And as I stood there looking at Kevin and it just
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:40.180
  • kind of dawned on me what I was asking Kevin to do, and I
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:48.020
  • realized that he was in the face of Jesus where he'd always lived
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:53.150
  • his life to be. And I thought, how selfish of me to ask him to
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:59.280
  • come back? When he was right there. And I just looked at him
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:07.040
  • and I said, Kev, mom will be okay and I'll let him go at that
  • 00:19:07.050 --> 00:19:13.000
  • point. We went in this room off the ICU waiting room to pray and
  • 00:19:13.010 --> 00:19:21.260
  • I started praying out loud and I heard myself say, God, I forgive
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:28.220
  • her and what she sent her family, all we knew it was a
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:31.280
  • female, didn't know anything else. TOM:God had already told
  • 00:19:31.290 --> 00:19:34.150
  • me that we needed to forgive this person. And when he told me
  • 00:19:34.160 --> 00:19:39.280
  • that, I was like, I'm not telling her that. I said if you
  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:44.070
  • want her to know that you're going to have to tell her
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:46.280
  • yourself, I am not going there. God, I'm not doing it. TIKI:I
  • 00:19:46.290 --> 00:19:49.200
  • opened my eyes cause I thought did I just really say that out
  • 00:19:49.210 --> 00:19:53.140
  • loud cause I surprised myself that I said that. TOM:And when
  • 00:19:53.150 --> 00:19:57.090
  • she said that in that prayer I started crying. I started broke
  • 00:19:57.100 --> 00:20:01.170
  • down because I thought, yes, thank you, Jesus!
  • 00:20:01.180 --> 00:20:05.280
  • TIKI:Eventually because I kept speaking God's word even though
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:11.060
  • I didn't feel like it, even though my head was, you know,
  • 00:20:11.070 --> 00:20:15.060
  • yelling other things at me and I continued to work through that
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:20.010
  • process, speaking the word and speaking over myself, it
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:24.040
  • eventually changed my feelings. I chose to not allow what this
  • 00:20:24.050 --> 00:20:30.060
  • woman did to trap me in a jail cell when I had the key to let
  • 00:20:30.070 --> 00:20:35.290
  • me go. And forgiveness is freedom. LATISHA:I was so
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:40.240
  • ashamed and embarrassed of what I had done. I really didn't know
  • 00:20:40.250 --> 00:20:46.080
  • how to deal with it. She came onto the news and I remember
  • 00:20:46.090 --> 00:20:49.180
  • seeing it was like she was looking around at me and she
  • 00:20:49.190 --> 00:20:53.230
  • said, Latisha, if you're watching this, I forgive you. I
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:57.120
  • knew that I didn't deserve it. Um, so it was kinda hard to,
  • 00:20:57.130 --> 00:21:01.000
  • except I didn't understand why she would forgive me, but, um,
  • 00:21:01.010 --> 00:21:06.010
  • it was, I guess comforting knowing that she, um, had said
  • 00:21:06.020 --> 00:21:11.130
  • that to me. TIKI:She was sentenced to eight years
  • 00:21:11.140 --> 00:21:14.270
  • vehicular homicide by intoxication and six years
  • 00:21:14.280 --> 00:21:18.150
  • supervised probation. After that, 11 months later I get a
  • 00:21:18.160 --> 00:21:25.100
  • phone call. She's coming up for parole. And so when he hung up
  • 00:21:25.110 --> 00:21:30.050
  • the phone, I was like, God really is Kevin's life not more
  • 00:21:30.060 --> 00:21:38.110
  • than 11 months. And he said, you said you trusted me. That when
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:45.000
  • it was my timing and I knew she was ready to get out, that you
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:47.250
  • would be okay with that. And I was like, I know, but 11 months.
  • 00:21:47.260 --> 00:21:52.240
  • And he said, do you trust me? Yes. If you know she's ready to
  • 00:21:52.250 --> 00:21:58.060
  • get out now, I'll be okay with it. I said, but I have no idea
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:22:02.210
  • what to say to the pro board. And he said, sit down and write
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:07.160
  • what you hear. When it was my turn, I just read what God had
  • 00:22:07.170 --> 00:22:11.170
  • me to write. TIKI:And I started it off with, I'm guilty of
  • 00:22:11.180 --> 00:22:16.080
  • murder too. And the person that I killed his father accepts me,
  • 00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:22.220
  • loves me as one of his own kids, doesn't hold what I did over my
  • 00:22:22.230 --> 00:22:27.020
  • head, doesn't beat me up with it. And so who am I to not
  • 00:22:27.030 --> 00:22:32.150
  • extend that same forgiveness that I've been given? And that
  • 00:22:32.160 --> 00:22:35.250
  • person that I killed was Jesus. Am i saying what she did was,
  • 00:22:35.260 --> 00:22:39.250
  • okay, absolutely not, but we can go forward together and make an
  • 00:22:39.260 --> 00:22:43.290
  • impact together. And then about two weeks later, she got the
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:48.000
  • news that, she was granted parole. She was released, in
  • 00:22:48.010 --> 00:22:52.190
  • November of 2013. And, we started speaking together in
  • 00:22:52.200 --> 00:22:59.060
  • January of 2014 and I haven't stopped since I got to high
  • 00:22:59.070 --> 00:23:03.130
  • school's, rehab centers, community events, anywhere and
  • 00:23:03.140 --> 00:23:07.200
  • everywhere that allow us to come and share our story of , the
  • 00:23:07.210 --> 00:23:12.060
  • dangers and consequences of drinking and driving. But the
  • 00:23:12.070 --> 00:23:14.220
  • message that shines through is a story of forgiveness.
  • 00:23:14.230 --> 00:23:20.000
  • LATISHA:Knowing that we can help someone with our story that
  • 00:23:20.010 --> 00:23:23.010
  • means everything to me like that has a lot of how I can accept
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:28.000
  • the forgiveness and try to move forward is knowing that we're
  • 00:23:28.010 --> 00:23:31.140
  • doing good, um, in the moral, you know, is that we're trying
  • 00:23:31.150 --> 00:23:34.160
  • to help other people, uh, not have to go through what we've
  • 00:23:34.170 --> 00:23:37.240
  • been through. So it's wonderful being able to share,
  • 00:23:37.250 --> 00:23:42.000
  • KELLIE: Wow, that the way that God processed them,
  • 00:23:47.080 --> 00:23:52.080
  • particularly Tiki through that, you know, Jesus
  • 00:23:52.090 --> 00:23:57.270
  • is there, are you there? Are you living face
  • 00:23:57.280 --> 00:24:00.170
  • to face like she was, I think when we go through
  • 00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:03.140
  • a hard time, Jesus will help us at any moment. But how
  • 00:24:03.150 --> 00:24:07.030
  • much easier it is for him to walk us through a situation. It
  • 00:24:07.040 --> 00:24:11.150
  • could be the death of a loved one or a devastating news or
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:16.040
  • divorce. I mean, things have happened in your life. Things
  • 00:24:16.050 --> 00:24:19.070
  • have happened in our lives, but when Jesus, when you're living
  • 00:24:19.080 --> 00:24:22.150
  • face to face with him, he knows the way through and he knows the
  • 00:24:22.160 --> 00:24:26.040
  • right answers in the right process to get you to the other
  • 00:24:26.050 --> 00:24:29.120
  • side. Not only you being free, but somehow you turn around and
  • 00:24:29.130 --> 00:24:33.030
  • there's a whole bunch of people behind you that are getting free
  • 00:24:33.040 --> 00:24:35.170
  • at the same time. And so today it's offering day to day.
  • 00:24:35.180 --> 00:24:39.240
  • And as we make our offering, let's call it a
  • 00:24:39.250 --> 00:24:43.140
  • representation of our time and our attention. Let's be so
  • 00:24:43.150 --> 00:24:47.130
  • captivated with Jesus that even if something happens in our
  • 00:24:47.140 --> 00:24:52.000
  • lives, we know how to hear from him and we hear his voice
  • 00:24:52.010 --> 00:24:57.080
  • talking to us and he ministers to us all the way through it. I
  • 00:24:57.090 --> 00:25:00.220
  • can't think of anything worse than what she went through, but
  • 00:25:00.230 --> 00:25:04.090
  • I can tell you that whatever you're going through, Jesus is
  • 00:25:04.100 --> 00:25:08.170
  • the answer. He loves you. He is everything that you need. So
  • 00:25:08.180 --> 00:25:13.280
  • whatever you want to offer him today, you know, a dollar, $10
  • 00:25:13.290 --> 00:25:18.240
  • whatever he puts in your heart or whatever you feel like in
  • 00:25:18.250 --> 00:25:21.240
  • your heart that represents your attention to him.
  • 00:25:21.250 --> 00:25:25.060
  • I'm giving you my attention even with my finances.
  • 00:25:25.070 --> 00:25:28.040
  • Lord, I'm, I'm giving you my attention with my finances.
  • 00:25:28.050 --> 00:25:31.030
  • It's a representation of your life in your heart.
  • 00:25:31.040 --> 00:25:34.050
  • KELLIE:The word says, where your treasure is where
  • 00:25:34.060 --> 00:25:36.170
  • your life is. So as you offer that to him, offer him
  • 00:25:36.180 --> 00:25:40.240
  • your face offer, receive from him, his face. He
  • 00:25:40.250 --> 00:25:45.120
  • wants to be face to face with you. Be captivated by him. Keep
  • 00:25:45.130 --> 00:25:50.130
  • your, It's funny when you make that decision and you start to
  • 00:25:50.140 --> 00:25:54.060
  • turn away, he'll go, woo, back over here. Look at me. I've got
  • 00:25:54.070 --> 00:25:57.240
  • the, I'm the one with the answers for today. I'm the one
  • 00:25:57.250 --> 00:26:00.150
  • with the answers and knows what you're going to face today. I'm
  • 00:26:00.160 --> 00:26:03.260
  • the one that needs to tell you how to pray, how to love, how to
  • 00:26:03.270 --> 00:26:06.210
  • forgive as you sow your offering this week. Thank you partners
  • 00:26:06.220 --> 00:26:10.180
  • for all that you do to allow us to bring this message to all
  • 00:26:10.190 --> 00:26:15.140
  • over the world. I want to encourage you to go to church
  • 00:26:15.150 --> 00:26:18.000
  • this weekend. Worship with people of faith. Get the word,
