  • I know My god has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:19.160
  • KENNETH: Hello everybody. I'm Kenneth
  • 00:00:23.110 --> 00:00:24.200
  • Copeland. This week is the southwest believers

  • invite you to come. I'm telling you now,
  • 00:00:32.010 --> 00:00:34.090
  • I know you've heard us say this before. One word from God can
  • 00:00:34.100 --> 00:00:37.200
  • change your life forever. Be totally immersed in the word of
  • 00:00:37.210 --> 00:00:43.030
  • God all week long. Now, this week I've invited Jeremy and
  • 00:00:43.040 --> 00:00:48.030
  • Sarah Pearson's my grandson and granddaughter to Minister to you
  • 00:00:48.040 --> 00:00:52.100
  • on the believers voice of victory broadcast. Now,
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:54.220
  • this young man has been in the ministry since he was three
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:58.170
  • years old, I'm serious, since he was three years old and he's
  • 00:00:58.180 --> 00:01:01.230
  • never ever done anything else in his life. He is one of the most
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:05.260
  • anointed young men that I've ever known. I have learned so
  • 00:01:05.270 --> 00:01:08.290
  • much from Jeremy and from Sarah and the young people that that
  • 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:14.080
  • are in and around his ministry. You're going to really enjoy
  • 00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:17.170
  • today. So, get your bibles and let's begin our Bible lesson.
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:23.280
  • JEREMY: Hello everybody. We're Jeremy and Sarah Pearsons and
  • 00:01:25.280 --> 00:01:28.020
  • we're so glad to be with you all this week on this broadcast and
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:30.270
  • I want to say one more time. Thank you to my grandparents.
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:34.140
  • Kenneth and Gloria Copeland for allowing us this opportunity
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:36.230
  • right now to spend some time with you and the word of God and
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:40.160
  • to come into your home or your office or wherever it is you're
  • 00:01:40.170 --> 00:01:44.050
  • watching right now, and you're feeding on the things of God.
  • 00:01:44.060 --> 00:01:46.170
  • We're just glad to be a part of it with you. And I'm so thankful
  • 00:01:46.180 --> 00:01:49.110
  • for my grandparents and for this ministry and the,
  • 00:01:49.120 --> 00:01:51.220
  • the, the global outreach of Kenneth Copeland ministries. You
  • 00:01:51.230 --> 00:01:56.290
  • know, Sarah and I have traveled together from nearly the day we
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:02:00.220
  • got married. Uh, I think what, a few weeks later we were on our
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:03.280
  • first ministry trip to South Africa together. And on that
  • 00:02:03.290 --> 00:02:05.290
  • trip, I'll never forget sitting down,
  • 00:02:06.000 --> 00:02:08.130
  • uh, on the airplane next to a man who had just earlier that
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:12.060
  • day, really caught my eye in that, at that terminal, man. I,
  • 00:02:12.070 --> 00:02:15.290
  • he just was walking across and there's thought there's
  • 00:02:16.000 --> 00:02:18.100
  • something about that guy. Well, Lo and behold,
  • 00:02:18.110 --> 00:02:20.020
  • he sits down right next to me on the airplane,
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:22.150
  • reaches into his briefcase and pulls out a book by a minister
  • 00:02:22.160 --> 00:02:27.070
  • that I knew and we got to talking,
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:28.220
  • and I said, "Are you in ministry?" He's African man. Ah,
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:30.280
  • it started many churches. And I said,
  • 00:02:30.290 --> 00:02:33.180
  • "We're in ministry." He asked where we were from and I said,
  • 00:02:33.190 --> 00:02:36.020
  • "Fort Worth, Texas," and I said, at the time we were on staff
  • 00:02:36.030 --> 00:02:38.280
  • here at Kenneth Copeland ministries,
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:40.290
  • and I somehow it came up. I know how it came up. I brought it up.
  • 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:44.220
  • I said, "Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and my grandparents."
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:47.040
  • And I'm telling you the, the, the way that man's mouth just
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:52.270
  • open. And it came all over him. And the honor and the respect
  • 00:02:52.280 --> 00:02:56.250
  • that he had for Kenneth and Gloria Copeland he,
  • 00:02:56.260 --> 00:02:59.120
  • I'll never forget, he said, "I have your grandparents' picture
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:02.070
  • on my wall. They have done so much for me and for this
  • 00:03:02.080 --> 00:03:06.260
  • ministry." And that impacted me that day. And I realized from
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:10.120
  • that day forward that I could be on and on any conference at any
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:14.220
  • place around the world. And there'd be a testimony just like
  • 00:03:14.230 --> 00:03:17.110
  • that one. And that's the goodness and the faithfulness of
  • 00:03:17.120 --> 00:03:19.290
  • God and how he's used this ministry. And I'm so thankful
  • 00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:22.160
  • because we are so honored right now to sit here in this place
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:26.050
  • and speak across this platform to this global audience. We
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:31.080
  • thank, God, it's an awesome thing. Let's do this right now.
  • 00:03:31.090 --> 00:03:34.110
  • Why don't you and I pray and I want you to do this. Would you
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:37.060
  • pray right now over Mimi and Papa and,
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:39.250
  • and uh, just whatever the Lord puts on your heart for them and
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:43.130
  • come into agreement right now for everything,
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:46.010
  • all the vision they have and everything. They're pressing in
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:48.090
  • for. SARAH: Father, we pray over Kenneth and Gloria right now and

  • we thank you. Thank you father for the blessing,
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:53.220
  • the gift that they are to the body of Christ. You have used
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:56.090
  • them all their lives to be a blessing,
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:58.280
  • Lord to humanity and we just bless them today. In return we

  • call them blessed. We call them increased. We say,

  • may the goodness of the Lord be seen on your lives in every

  • single way. Rise up, be increased. We- father,

  • the lives of the people financially and also just the
  • 00:04:16.160 --> 00:04:20.120
  • word of God, the seeds planted of the word of God. I'm asking
  • 00:04:20.130 --> 00:04:25.040
  • you to increase them and to give them a harvest beyond their
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.290
  • wildest dreams. I'm asking you to increase them and to give
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:31.060
  • them a hundred fold return on every seed that they have sown
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:34.000
  • in these, um, these years of their life. Lord,
  • 00:04:34.010 --> 00:04:39.040
  • that they'd see the greatest demonstration of your glory and
  • 00:04:39.050 --> 00:04:41.150
  • your goodness in your power, in their lives. We praise you. We

  • Lord, and we bless them in Jesus name.
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:55.050
  • JEREMY: Amen. Amen. Amen. Listen, if
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:57.100
  • you've missed anything, uh, from these broadcasts all this
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:05:00.160
  • week, go back to kcm.org get caught up with us because we've
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:04.020
  • been talking about living a legacy. And then we're also
  • 00:05:04.030 --> 00:05:07.200
  • talking about leaving a legacy, but you need to remember that
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:10.230
  • the life you live is the legacy that you leave. Now while you're
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:15.180
  • there on the website at kcm.org go to kcm.org/notes to get all
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:19.270
  • the study notes from the broadcast this week and then
  • 00:05:19.280 --> 00:05:22.230
  • Sarah and I are going to be back with you next week as well. So
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:25.140
  • get all of these, compile them all,
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:27.180
  • go through them again and use them to teach other people about
  • 00:05:27.190 --> 00:05:30.200
  • the legacy that they're living and,
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:32.160
  • the legacy that they are leaving. And you know,
  • 00:05:32.170 --> 00:05:35.030
  • we're talking at the top of this broadcast so much about my
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:37.240
  • grandparents, but honestly that was what was in my heart for
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:41.080
  • this week of broadcast. It was just to to honor them and to
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.130
  • express gratitude for the legacy of faith that they have put in
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:48.100
  • us. I know my, my sister, my cousins,
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:52.130
  • but not just our family. It's this global family like we're
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:55.250
  • talking about and Mimi and pawpaw Copeland as you can
  • 00:05:55.260 --> 00:05:59.090
  • probably imagine, have done so much for Sarah and I in our
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:02.240
  • marriage. All my cousins, of course my parents and aunts and
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:06.090
  • uncles, they have blessed us materially,
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:09.090
  • financially, relationally, every imaginable way. But more than
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:14.030
  • any of that, they have given us this spirit of faith. They've
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:18.270
  • demonstrated it, they've walked it out in front of us,
  • 00:06:18.280 --> 00:06:21.200
  • they have lived it, and the life that they have lived and
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:24.120
  • continue to live for many, many, many,
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:27.170
  • many, many more years is the legacy that they're leaving us
  • 00:06:27.180 --> 00:06:29.290
  • and I'm so grateful and thankful for the faith that's been put in
  • 00:06:30.000 --> 00:06:33.070
  • us. The faith that I, that I grew up in and around and you
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:38.030
  • that the same way and your house around your parents and
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:42.180
  • grandparents and don't want to read something from the book of
  • 00:06:42.190 --> 00:06:45.110
  • Hebrews that I believe goes right in line with what we're
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:50.000
  • talking about right now in Hebrews chapter 13 thank you
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:54.220
  • lord. It says this in verse seven "To remember those who
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:59.240
  • rule over you who have spoken the word of God to you,
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:05.030
  • whose faith follow considering the outcome of their conduct." I
  • 00:07:05.040 --> 00:07:12.090
  • think the King James Maybe says conversation. What he's saying
  • 00:07:12.100 --> 00:07:14.290
  • here is consider how their lives have turned out. Listen to these
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:19.120
  • words again. "Remember those who rule over you,
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:22.120
  • and who is he specifically talking about those who have
  • 00:07:22.130 --> 00:07:25.250
  • spoken the word of God to you remember. What's it mean to
  • 00:07:25.260 --> 00:07:30.130
  • remember? Be Mindful or don't forget. How easy it is sometimes
  • 00:07:30.140 --> 00:07:36.050
  • to forget the things that we would think we'd never forget.
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:38.260
  • We were reading earlier in this week on one of the broadcast,
  • 00:07:38.270 --> 00:07:41.240
  • I think it may have been Tuesday's broadcast from the
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:44.220
  • book of Psalm 78 where the instruction is,
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:47.140
  • is exactly what we've been talking about. Fathers,
  • 00:07:47.150 --> 00:07:49.210
  • he's come, the word of God commands fathers to teach their
  • 00:07:49.220 --> 00:07:52.290
  • children, commands them to teach their children and the
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:56.280
  • children's children. And if you go on in that psalm,
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:59.240
  • he talks about a generation who forgot the generation that came
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:04.200
  • out of Egypt and even though God did miraculous things for them,
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:08.150
  • marvelous signs and wonders, things you would think somebody
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:11.220
  • could never forget. You think. How could you forget the day
  • 00:08:11.230 --> 00:08:15.060
  • that the Red seas split open and you walked across on dry land?
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:20.000
  • How could you forget that? How could you forget mana fallen
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:23.030
  • from the sky day after day? How could you forget water coming
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:26.100
  • out of a rock? How could you forget? And yet those people did
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:30.030
  • because every time they stepped up to another seemingly
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:33.050
  • impossible situation, they went straight to complaining, not to
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:37.110
  • remembering what God had just done for them. And you know,
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:40.130
  • I'll tell you what would be an amazing study that we should do
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:43.070
  • sometime, is go back through the Old Testament and look at how
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:46.290
  • many different times throughout the entire Old Testament,
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:51.230
  • that leaving Egypt is brought up,
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:55.040
  • over and over and over. See God intended that time in the
  • 00:08:55.050 --> 00:09:01.010
  • history of the nation of Israel to not just be for that
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:04.000
  • generation who was brought out, He intended the memory of that
  • 00:09:04.010 --> 00:09:08.160
  • to live on and on and on. And that's what Passover was all
  • 00:09:08.170 --> 00:09:12.160
  • about. Sitting down at that table and recall,
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:14.270
  • remember. And yet there were generations that forgot. And you
  • 00:09:14.280 --> 00:09:19.210
  • would think to yourself, how could you forget that? How could
  • 00:09:19.220 --> 00:09:22.230
  • you forget the good things that are good God has done well? If
  • 00:09:22.240 --> 00:09:26.080
  • you're not purposeful about remembering it,
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:29.160
  • you will forget it. And He said, that's why this instruction here
  • 00:09:29.170 --> 00:09:33.060
  • is so important. Remember those who have the rule over you. I
  • 00:09:33.070 --> 00:09:36.200
  • mean I think through your life and mine,
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:39.060
  • the different people who have spoken the word of God to us and
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:41.240
  • I don't believe it's just a mental,
  • 00:09:41.250 --> 00:09:43.110
  • "Oh yeah, those guys." How do you remember these people? I
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:48.050
  • know one of the ways the Lord's lead us to do it at different
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:50.120
  • times. We remember them by sowing into them. We remember
  • 00:09:50.130 --> 00:09:53.060
  • them by, um, by speaking, uh, not just to them but about them
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:59.290
  • to others. And there might be people that think we are Kenneth
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:03.220
  • and Gloria Copeland fanatics or for us,
  • 00:10:03.230 --> 00:10:06.220
  • I know you are going to pastor Keith and Phyllis Moore's church
  • 00:10:06.230 --> 00:10:10.110
  • when we got married and we've stayed plugged in there that
  • 00:10:10.120 --> 00:10:12.210
  • people might think, well, they just idolize those who...No.
  • 00:10:12.220 --> 00:10:15.020
  • These are the ones who've spoken the word to us. Your Mom,
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:18.070
  • your dad, my mom and dad, your grandparents. They'd spoken the
  • 00:10:18.080 --> 00:10:21.100
  • word to us. And so we remember that. We recall that. We recall
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:26.270
  • the words they've spoken and this is what He said,
  • 00:10:26.280 --> 00:10:29.100
  • "Whose faith follow." Yeah. They have lived a life that has
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:35.250
  • demonstrated a faith that we can follow. I mean,
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:41.100
  • in fact, how many times in the last nine or 10 years of having
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:44.040
  • our own ministry, have we sat across from each other at a
  • 00:10:44.050 --> 00:10:47.100
  • table like this or laid in bed talking about what do you think
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:49.140
  • Mimi and Papa would do here? I mean,
  • 00:10:49.150 --> 00:10:51.170
  • when we were trying to make decisions about the ministry or
  • 00:10:51.180 --> 00:10:54.060
  • about our family, what would the Moores do? What would mom and
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:57.180
  • dad, how would Mimi and Papa handle this? Yeah. Why are we
  • 00:10:57.190 --> 00:11:01.070
  • doing that? These are the people who've spoken the word to us and
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:04.010
  • they've lived a life of faith that we can follow. Does that
  • 00:11:04.020 --> 00:11:07.170
  • make sense? I mean, what comes to your mind when I'm talking?
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:10.130
  • SARAH: I'm thinking about the story. When we were with Mimi
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:13.020
  • and papa all those years ago and we were just starting out in
  • 00:11:13.030 --> 00:11:15.180
  • ministry and we had all these dreams,
  • 00:11:15.190 --> 00:11:18.250
  • all these things that were in our heart that we wanted to see,
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:21.120
  • we wanted to experience and we wanted to live in our life and
  • 00:11:21.130 --> 00:11:24.140
  • we just wanted it to be more really,
  • 00:11:24.150 --> 00:11:27.110
  • we were, what we were seeing in our hearts was more than what we
  • 00:11:27.120 --> 00:11:30.060
  • were experiencing. And so we had all this vision and all of these
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:34.180
  • things, but we didn't know how to get from where we are to
  • 00:11:34.190 --> 00:11:39.000
  • where we wanted to be. So we asked Mimi one day,
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:41.130
  • we said, Mimi, Gloria. We said, how do we get from where we are
  • 00:11:41.140 --> 00:11:45.030
  • to where we want to be? And she just said something so simple as
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:49.230
  • she usually does, but so profound. She said,
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:53.040
  • just keep walking. And that was it. And that was it. You know,
  • 00:11:53.050 --> 00:11:57.090
  • we wanted this big explanation. We wanted her to tell us how to
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:12:00.190
  • do it, all that we really needed. What she said,
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:03.000
  • just keep walking. And this life of faith is really that it's a
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:12.230
  • walk of faith and you just keep walking. Yeah. And at that time
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:17.120
  • we didn't see everything, all the everything come to pass that
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:21.180
  • we wanted to see. But we had to just keep walking. We had to
  • 00:12:21.190 --> 00:12:26.040
  • just keep planting and sowing and living by faith and,
  • 00:12:26.050 --> 00:12:30.080
  • and obeying God and doing one thing,
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:33.050
  • putting one foot in front of the other foot that's walking by
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:36.110
  • faith. And now here we are probably 10 years later after we
  • 00:12:36.120 --> 00:12:40.140
  • had that conversation and we did,
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:42.270
  • we kept walking. We started the TV ministry. When God told us to
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:46.210
  • do that, we uh, you know, had our babies. We just took one
  • 00:12:46.220 --> 00:12:51.000
  • step, moved when He told us to move. We,
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:54.120
  • we hired employees when He told us to hire,
  • 00:12:54.130 --> 00:12:56.220
  • we kept planting seeds. We sowed where He told us to sow and now
  • 00:12:56.230 --> 00:12:59.290
  • we are seeing a harvest and we're seeing the things that we
  • 00:13:00.020 --> 00:13:04.200
  • always dreamed of. JEREMY: Well, do you remember where we were
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:08.040
  • that day when she said that? I know you do. Where were we? We
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:11.280
  • were in Colorado. We had gone up there and they happened to be in
  • 00:13:11.290 --> 00:13:16.050
  • the state at the same time. We'd gone up there because we had it
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:18.110
  • in our hearts that we were moving there,
  • 00:13:18.120 --> 00:13:20.210
  • that, that I talked about it earlier in this week's
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:23.020
  • broadcast, how we laid in bed one night,
  • 00:13:23.030 --> 00:13:25.190
  • night before Thanksgiving 2009 just started dreaming about
  • 00:13:25.200 --> 00:13:28.150
  • having our own and having a church and having a ministry
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:31.120
  • with property and maybe even having some cabins where we
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:34.240
  • could have ministers in and minister,
  • 00:13:34.250 --> 00:13:36.250
  • uh, restoration to them and peace and come be a part of
  • 00:13:36.260 --> 00:13:41.010
  • ministry events. And this vision started coming out of us and,
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:43.290
  • and you know, we were young in it thinking,
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:46.190
  • wow, well that's probably gonna happen,
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:48.180
  • you know, Monday. So, uh, it wasn't long after that. We were
  • 00:13:48.190 --> 00:13:53.140
  • up there looking and we were looking for property and place
  • 00:13:53.150 --> 00:13:56.120
  • to live and a place to set the ministry. And we had gone to
  • 00:13:56.130 --> 00:13:58.120
  • breakfast with them that morning and we were leaving the
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:14:01.120
  • restaurant, getting in the car. And that's when I asked Mimi,
  • 00:14:01.130 --> 00:14:03.170
  • how do we do this? How do we get from where we were to where we
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:06.240
  • see in our hearts where we want to be. And what I was talking
  • 00:14:06.250 --> 00:14:10.070
  • about was being in the mountains,
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.230
  • being on property, having this place and having a church. And
  • 00:14:12.240 --> 00:14:17.050
  • she said, just keep walking. SARAH: We were looking for that
  • 00:14:17.060 --> 00:14:20.040
  • day. They went out to look at property for them. JEREMY: And
  • 00:14:20.050 --> 00:14:21.250
  • uh, we did just keep walking and I gotta tell you it's been a 10
  • 00:14:21.260 --> 00:14:27.210
  • year walk and that's what you need to know about the walk of
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:31.130
  • faith. It's a long walk. It's a long walk. Uh,
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:35.210
  • we're here in Hebrews 13. Turn back just a couple of pages to
  • 00:14:35.220 --> 00:14:39.180
  • chapter 11, this great faith chapter. It says in verse five,
  • 00:14:39.190 --> 00:14:43.270
  • by faith, "Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death and
  • 00:14:43.280 --> 00:14:48.070
  • was not found because God had taken him for before he was
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:50.290
  • taken. He had this testimony that he pleased God." That's an
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:56.130
  • interesting word. In light of what we're talking about. He had
  • 00:14:56.140 --> 00:14:58.210
  • this testimony. He had this, if you will,
  • 00:14:58.220 --> 00:15:01.240
  • reputation. In other words, this is what people said about him.
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:04.260
  • He pleased God. That was his life story. He pleased God. He
  • 00:15:04.270 --> 00:15:12.020
  • was pleasing to God. Now if you were to go back and search the
  • 00:15:12.030 --> 00:15:15.020
  • scriptures for everything you could find about Enoch and his
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:19.110
  • life, it wouldn't be but about that much and you meet him in
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:23.270
  • genesis chapter five I think it is in a long lineage line of
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:30.070
  • this one had this child and beget this one and lived this
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:33.250
  • long and he died and this one had these kids and he lived this
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:36.050
  • long and he died and it's one right after the other just like
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:38.140
  • that. And there's really not a lot of information about him
  • 00:15:38.150 --> 00:15:41.020
  • other than how old they were when they had kids and what
  • 00:15:41.030 --> 00:15:43.140
  • those kids names were and then how old they were when they
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:46.190
  • died. And it's, it's one of those chapters,
  • 00:15:46.200 --> 00:15:49.050
  • you kind of gotta do this to stay awake while you're read,
  • 00:15:49.060 --> 00:15:50.250
  • until you get to Enoch. And the Bible says something about Enoch
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:55.110
  • that it doesn't say about anybody else. It says that he
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:59.200
  • lived, I think it was 65 years and he beget a son and then he
  • 00:15:59.210 --> 00:16:05.290
  • lived another 300 years and he died at 365 years old. But the
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:14.150
  • Bible says, there in genesis cahpter 5,
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:17.000
  • that Enoch walked with God for 300 years. Now it doesn't give
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:24.090
  • any other detail about any other person in that whole chapter,
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:27.100
  • just him and that he walked with God. Now when you couple that
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:32.220
  • with Hebrews 11 what you find out is that walking with God is
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:38.020
  • what pleases him and that's what faith is. Even though that's all
  • 00:16:38.030 --> 00:16:43.130
  • we know about Enoch, his life and his testimony,
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:47.180
  • his reputation or if you will, his legacy is the whole reason
  • 00:16:47.190 --> 00:16:52.200
  • we have Hebrews 11:6. You want to know what that says? "Without
  • 00:16:52.210 --> 00:16:57.130
  • faith it's impossible to please him. For He who comes to God
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:17:01.140
  • must believe that He is, that he's a rewarder of those who
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:05.030
  • diligently seek him." I'm telling you the lot,
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:09.050
  • the walk of faith is a long walk. Ask Enoch. It was
  • 00:17:09.060 --> 00:17:13.020
  • a 300 year walk. SARAH: Seeking him for 10 years is nothing
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:18.030
  • compared to that. JEREMY: And a willingness to walk with God for
  • 00:17:18.040 --> 00:17:21.260
  • 300 years. I mean I can only imagine what he saw,
  • 00:17:21.270 --> 00:17:28.000
  • what he learned. I know for us 10 years later how much we've
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:33.220
  • grown. Multiply that time 30 yeah,
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:36.270
  • I mean now you're starting to get a taste of what eternity can
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:41.180
  • be like cause it's going to be a faith walk then as much as it is
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:44.170
  • now. SARAH: Even so more now with us,
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:46.180
  • we have the Holy Spirit and what can happen in our life in 10
  • 00:17:46.190 --> 00:17:50.000
  • years is just like exponential growth compared to what they
  • 00:17:50.010 --> 00:17:53.110
  • could do back then. So it's just amazing to see. You know what we
  • 00:17:53.120 --> 00:17:56.100
  • have now. JEREMY: So when Mimi said just keep walking,
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:59.110
  • we were in Colorado and it was on that trip that the Lord spoke
  • 00:17:59.120 --> 00:18:03.290
  • to you and said it's not time. Go home,
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:06.160
  • get planted. It's not time. And so I think that was probably
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:10.140
  • well over six, seven years ago because for several years we'd
  • 00:18:10.150 --> 00:18:17.110
  • been looking up there and we were so sure. SARAH: I know that
  • 00:18:17.120 --> 00:18:20.120
  • Colorado was it, that when the Lord told me,
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:22.280
  • go back to Texas, I was so disappointed and I thought,
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:26.110
  • "Well, did we Miss God?" Did we miss it? And I,
  • 00:18:26.120 --> 00:18:30.120
  • you know how when you get disappointed about something,
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:32.040
  • you can sometimes just put it on the back burner and you just
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:34.160
  • think, well, it's almost like you just pretend like that's not
  • 00:18:34.170 --> 00:18:38.150
  • there almost anymore. So I think for years and years and years we
  • 00:18:38.160 --> 00:18:41.110
  • just kept walking with the Lord, but doing everything we needed
  • 00:18:41.120 --> 00:18:44.130
  • to do in Texas. And then just this last year came back up in
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:47.020
  • our heart. Yeah, the late in 2018 here it comes again. We
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:51.220
  • got, we got some strong words of leadership from some of our
  • 00:18:51.230 --> 00:18:55.230
  • leaders that said, now's the time guys,
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:57.210
  • the anointing is there to pastor. Find out where
  • 00:18:57.220 --> 00:19:00.110
  • you're supposed to be. And we thought we had prayed about
  • 00:19:00.120 --> 00:19:03.000
  • moving. And I even said that and I said,
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:04.130
  • pray again. That's good advice right there,
  • 00:19:04.140 --> 00:19:06.100
  • isn't it? Pray again. And so we did. And here comes all that
  • 00:19:06.110 --> 00:19:09.170
  • dream backup on the inside of us about Colorado. And we,
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:13.040
  • we followed a clue. We were looking at a building and we
  • 00:19:13.050 --> 00:19:16.280
  • kind of searched it out and it seemed like maybe it could work.
  • 00:19:16.290 --> 00:19:19.280
  • And then, um, few months later after looking at it,
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:23.010
  • it just didn't seem quite right. So we went back to praying again
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:25.220
  • and, and seeking back to seeking the Lord. And in February of
  • 00:19:25.230 --> 00:19:28.210
  • 2019, Sarah and I determined we're not leaving the house.
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:33.220
  • We're not going to the office we're not doing anything. We're
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:36.080
  • going to sit our little selves right here. We sat down by the
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:39.020
  • fire for about three days and just got the word and began to
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:40.280
  • pray, seek the Lord. And sure enough,
  • 00:19:40.290 --> 00:19:43.070
  • this property comes up that I had actually looked at a week or
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:46.180
  • so before, didn't think much of it,
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.270
  • but when I showed it to Sarah, she got excited about it and
  • 00:19:48.280 --> 00:19:51.160
  • when she got excited about it, I got excited about it. And now
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:53.240
  • we're getting ready to close. By the time you see this,
  • 00:19:53.250 --> 00:19:58.020
  • it will all be closed and we'll have it on a 30.000
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:20:02.100
  • square foot facility that we're going to turn into our
  • 00:20:02.110 --> 00:20:05.040
  • church. And our offices on 151 acres of mountain land and yet
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:10.230
  • the driveway to our property is right off a main highway and
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:14.230
  • it's got nine cabins on it. I mean,
  • 00:20:14.240 --> 00:20:18.290
  • it is the embodiment of the vision that the Lord gave us
  • 00:20:19.000 --> 00:20:22.010
  • almost 10 years ago. How in the world did we get here? One step
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:26.010
  • then another then another? Who does that sound like? Well,
  • 00:20:26.020 --> 00:20:30.050
  • to me it just looks like we found somebody who would preach
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:34.190
  • the word to us. We followed their faith considering the
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:38.250
  • outcome of their life. That's what Hebrews 13 is saying. In
  • 00:20:38.260 --> 00:20:42.010
  • other words, look at how it turned out for them. Look at how
  • 00:20:42.020 --> 00:20:44.170
  • this life of faith produced good things in them. It will do this
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:48.180
  • same thing in you. That's how this was supposed to happen. One
  • 00:20:48.190 --> 00:20:52.060
  • generation of faith, declaring and preaching faith to the next
  • 00:20:52.070 --> 00:20:56.000
  • generation, to the next, to the next,
  • 00:20:56.010 --> 00:20:58.000
  • to the next. Now look at this in verse eight here's what follows
  • 00:20:58.010 --> 00:21:00.230
  • this. "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,
  • 00:21:00.240 --> 00:21:04.240
  • today, and forever." So verse nine says,
  • 00:21:04.250 --> 00:21:08.260
  • "Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines."
  • 00:21:08.270 --> 00:21:12.120
  • So when you put all this together,
  • 00:21:12.130 --> 00:21:14.160
  • He saying, look, look at people who preached the word to you.
  • 00:21:14.170 --> 00:21:17.170
  • They walk by faith. You can walk by faith and their the,
  • 00:21:17.180 --> 00:21:21.010
  • the answer for them was Jesus. Jesus will be your answer and He
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:26.220
  • will be the answer for the generations that come. You and
  • 00:21:26.230 --> 00:21:30.090
  • I, here's the bottom line. We can live with the same kind of
  • 00:21:30.100 --> 00:21:35.000
  • consistency and constancy that we see in Jesus himself. Yeah.
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:41.040
  • And if he's the same yesterday and today and forever,
  • 00:21:41.050 --> 00:21:43.190
  • then we can stay the same. Now there are things in us of course
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:46.170
  • that need to change, but what stays the same is that
  • 00:21:46.180 --> 00:21:48.150
  • commitment to live and to walk by faith. Amen. Amen. Jesus
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:54.190
  • Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever. And that's
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:59.010
  • the heartbeat of legacy church and our mission statement.
  • 00:21:59.020 --> 00:22:04.060
  • Really, it's something the Lord's been compiling for us for
  • 00:22:04.070 --> 00:22:06.280
  • years, I'd say. Things that He's spoken to us at different times
  • 00:22:06.290 --> 00:22:12.230
  • and different ways and what we didn't realize was happening was
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:15.030
  • all along the way. He's given us the vision and the mission for
  • 00:22:15.040 --> 00:22:17.080
  • our church. But the mission statement for this outreach is
  • 00:22:17.090 --> 00:22:21.120
  • at the heart of legacy church is the unyielding belief that Jesus
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:26.130
  • was, is and will always be the answer. He is Jesus for every
  • 00:22:26.140 --> 00:22:31.020
  • generation and this church, this local church with a global call,
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:37.180
  • will serve as a platform from which we reach the nations,
  • 00:22:37.190 --> 00:22:40.290
  • serving our generation with the word of God,
  • 00:22:41.000 --> 00:22:44.180
  • teaching them how to live by faith in the day of grace,
  • 00:22:44.190 --> 00:22:46.210
  • how to experience a whole life prosperity,
  • 00:22:46.220 --> 00:22:49.110
  • and how to raise a family in the house of faith. That's our
  • 00:22:49.120 --> 00:22:54.150
  • assignment. That's our vision. That's our heartbeat. And I'm
  • 00:22:54.160 --> 00:22:58.160
  • excited about it. Are you? SARAH: I'm so excited.
  • 00:22:58.170 --> 00:23:01.260

  • the church. That's not what this is about. What
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:07.130
  • we're encouraging you to do is make sure that your house is
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:11.090
  • a house of faith. And even if you weren't brought up in one
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:15.020
  • just like this, that's okay. Your House can become that house
  • 00:23:15.030 --> 00:23:17.290
  • of faith today, right now, and your children and your
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:20.210
  • grandchildren can come up in this house of faith and this
  • 00:23:20.220 --> 00:23:24.260
  • legacy of faith in Jesus. Faith in his word can continue if you
  • 00:23:24.270 --> 00:23:29.250
  • will be the generation who preaches it to the next one.
  • 00:23:29.260 --> 00:23:33.270
