  • and how he's meeting your needs and taking care of you and
  • 00:01:27.030 --> 00:01:30.020
  • supplying supernaturally. And what we've been talking about,
  • 00:01:30.030 --> 00:01:34.060
  • Gloria, is God is my source. God is my source. No matter what is
  • 00:01:34.070 --> 00:01:39.080
  • going on financially in your lives, no matter what is taking
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:42.150
  • place. If you've been struggling, you need to know
  • 00:01:42.160 --> 00:01:45.110
  • today that God is the source of all of your supply. And we've
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:50.060
  • been through a number of scriptures. You can go back and
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:52.230
  • watch the broadcast on kcm.org they're available to you.
  • 00:01:52.240 --> 00:01:56.130
  • GLORIA: I was thinking about what an opportunity that our
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:02:00.280
  • watchers have because what we are sharing, what you primarily
  • 00:02:00.290 --> 00:02:05.130
  • are sharing, what you're sharing. It took years for us to
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:09.260
  • learn these things. GEORGE: That's true. GLORIA: And to walk
  • 00:02:09.270 --> 00:02:12.110
  • in it and to get uh, I don't know, but to be able to make it
  • 00:02:12.120 --> 00:02:16.220
  • work. Stay with it, and now they can just get it over night
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:21.270
  • almost. GEORGE: Well the thing about it to, but the same
  • 00:02:21.280 --> 00:02:27.100
  • renewing of the mind process. We all go through that and that's
  • 00:02:27.110 --> 00:02:31.060
  • what it takes. But you're right there. There has been a lot of
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:34.010
  • research done, spiritual research, especially with you
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:37.120
  • and Kenneth where prosperity is concerned. I know that there's a
  • 00:02:37.130 --> 00:02:40.270
  • lot of criticism towards you about that. Um, I like what
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:45.210
  • Kenneth says about you about just not really caring. I can't
  • 00:02:45.220 --> 00:02:51.210
  • tell you much I don't care. And so, but I'm just so grateful
  • 00:02:51.220 --> 00:02:57.090
  • because Gloria, there's so many people who have benefited from
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:03:00.020
  • listening to these messages and hearing what the Lord says about
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:04.130
  • your prosperity. You know, you may be looking at your paycheck
  • 00:03:04.140 --> 00:03:08.150
  • and thinking, how are we going to get out of debt? How are we
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:11.190
  • going to pay these bills? The Lord is your source of supply
  • 00:03:11.200 --> 00:03:16.150
  • and he will take care of you. And today on the broadcast, I
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:20.050
  • wanted to talk about this subject. Claim what you need. I
  • 00:03:20.060 --> 00:03:23.190
  • want it to give the people something that they could take
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:26.020
  • away and actually do right away where these are concerned. And
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:29.020
  • this example I received listening to Brother Kenneth
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:32.150
  • Hagin about believing for finances. Now, he was in his
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:36.190
  • traveling ministry, which began in 1949. He'd been pastoring for
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:42.190
  • 12 years and, and doing very well in the church. And then the
  • 00:03:42.200 --> 00:03:46.100
  • Lord called him out into the field and he started going on
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:49.070
  • and he said, in this message that I heard, he said, the first
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:52.190
  • year was very difficult. He said that they were struggling
  • 00:03:52.200 --> 00:03:55.130
  • financially. Um, they, they didn't have adequate provision.
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:04:00.150
  • Uh, it was, they, he said that they lived in a three room
  • 00:04:00.160 --> 00:04:04.190
  • apartment. The children were not properly clothed or fed. The car
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:08.060
  • was worn out enough to sell as junk. And he said the finances
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:12.140
  • were not manifesting. GLORIA: That was before he learned how
  • 00:04:12.150 --> 00:04:15.090
  • to walk by faith. GEORGE: That was before. And the Lord
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:17.240
  • corrected him. GLORIA: And I, I remember days like that myself.
  • 00:04:17.250 --> 00:04:21.030
  • GEORGE: You remember those days? GLORIA: Not that, not maybe to
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:23.270
  • that extreme, but yeah. Boy, it seemed like it. We didn't, you
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:28.180
  • know, we didn't know how to believe God. We just had to live
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:32.280
  • from day to day. GEORGE: Yeah, and you were learning and you
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:37.020
  • are growing. Same thing for Terri and me. Our faith was
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:39.110
  • growing, our faith was enlarging, it was getting bigger
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:42.130
  • and bigger. But back then in 1949 he's struggling and he's
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:46.180
  • barely getting by. And the Lord corrected his thinking about how
  • 00:04:46.190 --> 00:04:51.260
  • to believe for finances. And what was happening was he was,
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:54.260
  • he was just crying out to the Lord in desperation about his
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:59.250
  • situation. And the Lord brought his thinking back around to a
  • 00:04:59.260 --> 00:05:04.280
  • more targeted way of using his faith. We have to be targeted.
  • 00:05:04.290 --> 00:05:10.100
  • Faith is very targeted. It's very targeted and it's very
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:14.060
  • succinct in the way it operates. And so he gave, he gave Brother
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:19.120
  • Hagin a three step process of how to believe God for his
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:23.030
  • finances. And let me give you the steps. Step number one is
  • 00:05:23.040 --> 00:05:26.270
  • claim what you need. Claim what you need. What is it that you
  • 00:05:26.280 --> 00:05:32.110
  • are believing for? What is it that you need right now? What
  • 00:05:32.120 --> 00:05:35.090
  • bills are outstanding? What things need to happen in your,
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:38.130
  • the financial realm. Claim what you need. And then the second
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:42.230
  • step, Gloria was say this out loud, Satan, take your hands off
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:46.140
  • my money. That's what the Lord said. Yeah. The Lord told him,
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:49.060
  • say it, Satan, take your hands off my money. And then the Lord
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:54.230
  • told Brother Hagin to say go ministering spirits and cause
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:58.120
  • the money to come. So those three steps that he took, very
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:03.140
  • simple claim what you need. Satan, take your hands off.
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:07.130
  • GLORIA: Lets talk about claim what you need, in other words
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:09.190
  • believe you receive when you pray, like the Bible says. Mark
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:13.050
  • 11. Believe you receive when you pray. Yeah. Climate it, or take
  • 00:06:13.060 --> 00:06:16.280
  • it. GEORGE: Yeah. That word claim you, you, you stake, you
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:22.280
  • know, I didn't look up the word claim but um, I was thinking
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:27.010
  • about staking a claim and how settlers would think that works.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:32.120
  • The, the, the wild west and they would go out there and stake
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:35.270
  • their claim, put their stake in the ground and claim it, claim
  • 00:06:35.280 --> 00:06:41.160
  • it. You know, there's, I just thought of this is there are a
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:45.130
  • buildings around Fort Worth that, uh, have unclaimed
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:50.090
  • furniture and that there are, they're there. I'm thinking to
  • 00:06:50.100 --> 00:06:57.060
  • myself of all the benefits, benefits that we have in the
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:07:01.120
  • Word of God, many of them are left unclaimed. So there's a,
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:07.040
  • there's a place that we claim what rightfully belongs to us.
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:11.000
  • GLORIA: Who does this belong to? Yeah. Well, I don't know. Well,
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:16.080
  • I don't know either. It's not mine. GEORGE: Claim what you
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:19.170
  • need. Claim what you need or take what you need, lay claim on
  • 00:07:19.180 --> 00:07:23.100
  • it, possess it. That's another, that's another one. Possess what
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:27.250
  • you need. Then Satan, take your hands off my money. That's
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:33.010
  • right. There's a spiritual outlaw out there who is trying
  • 00:07:33.020 --> 00:07:35.280
  • to keep back a thief. The one who comes to steal and kill and
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:41.220
  • destroy, who is endeavoring to take from us or keep what
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:46.170
  • belongs to us. Satan you take your hands off my money and then
  • 00:07:46.180 --> 00:07:50.110
  • I like this. Go ministering spirits and cause the money to
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:54.050
  • come. He's sent out the angels, the, the angelic forces to go
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:08:00.110
  • get it and bring it. I can't tell you how many times, Gloria,
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:03.260
  • I have used this for what Terri and I have believed for what we
  • 00:08:03.270 --> 00:08:07.170
  • believe for here in the ministry. And we ran into a
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:12.050
  • situation in 2018 around May, uh, we, we were running, we
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:19.070
  • were, we did a projection into the end of the year and it was
  • 00:08:19.080 --> 00:08:23.050
  • looking like we were headed towards a $4 million deficit.
  • 00:08:23.060 --> 00:08:25.270
  • GLORIA: That's not good George. GEORGE: So I saw that and I as,
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:30.180
  • as the CEO, I approached it like this. I said, okay, spiritually,
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:34.260
  • here's what we need to do. We need to lay claim. Yeah. On
  • 00:08:34.270 --> 00:08:38.240
  • these finances. Now there's some things that we did in the
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:41.210
  • natural. There are things that I stopped. There are things that I
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:44.280
  • held back on. There are things that we postpone till later on
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:48.170
  • until we get this thing under control. And we, we claimed we
  • 00:08:48.180 --> 00:08:52.070
  • believe God for the supply. And I want to read this to you. It's
  • 00:08:52.080 --> 00:08:56.250
  • not on your notes, but it's, it was the scripture that we used
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:59.240
  • and it's the scripture that we continued to use to this day.
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:02.270
  • Uh, in Deuteronomy 28 11 it says, the Lord shall make you
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:06.260
  • plenteous in goods. Deuteronomy 28:11. I like the amplified
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:10.290
  • translation. It says he will make you have a surplus of
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:15.080
  • prosperity surplus more than enough, a surplus of prosperity.
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:22.160
  • The NIV says abundant prosperity. So we claimed that
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:26.160
  • Gloria, we claimed that scripture last year and as we
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:31.010
  • went through the year, and when you're, when you're headed down
  • 00:09:31.020 --> 00:09:33.190
  • a trajectory of $4 million deficit, you there, there's some
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:37.110
  • things that you- GLORIA: Need to stop and smell the roses.
  • 00:09:37.120 --> 00:09:40.110
  • GEORGE: Yes, exactly. Exactly. Exactly. So as we went through
  • 00:09:40.120 --> 00:09:45.170
  • the year, this is what we would do. We would claim, we claim the
  • 00:09:45.180 --> 00:09:49.120
  • finances that we need for the ministry and we would say, and
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:52.210
  • I'm talking about my staff, I'm talking about our staff, I'm
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:55.130
  • talking about my executive team, satan you take your hands off my
  • 00:09:55.140 --> 00:09:59.010
  • money, you take your hands off our money. And I said
  • 00:09:59.020 --> 00:10:02.110
  • ministering spirits. Go and bring the finances to Kenneth
  • 00:10:02.120 --> 00:10:06.230
  • Copeland ministries to cover all of this. We were, we were
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:10.260
  • involved in the building project of the Student Life Center for
  • 00:10:10.270 --> 00:10:14.150
  • KCBC. There was a lot going on in a lot happening. GLORIA: But
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:18.040
  • somebody might not understand why it'd be so much, but the
  • 00:10:18.050 --> 00:10:21.120
  • television bill was what? GEORGE: Well television is, it's
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:24.100
  • over a million a month. Yeah. So that in itself, so you're
  • 00:10:24.110 --> 00:10:29.260
  • continuing, but we, here's what happened, Gloria, I, you and I
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:33.270
  • together back in 1989 and Kenneth, we went through the $6
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:37.190
  • million deficit and when I, when I heard we were headed towards a
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:42.050
  • $4 million deficit. See that was, that was in 1989 here we
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:46.270
  • are 30 years later and, and I'm like David, I've wrestled the
  • 00:10:46.280 --> 00:10:51.220
  • bear and I've rested the lion and this uncircumcised
  • 00:10:51.230 --> 00:10:56.040
  • Philistine is nothing in my sight. And there was a boldness
  • 00:10:56.050 --> 00:11:01.210
  • that ran rose up on the inside of us about this. And so we did
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:06.110
  • that. We claimed what we needed site and take your hands off our
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:09.060
  • money, go ministering spirits and cause the money to come. And
  • 00:11:09.070 --> 00:11:13.060
  • Gloria, we had extra money coming in, things that were
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:16.230
  • taking place and it was on, I remember dates, I remember
  • 00:11:16.240 --> 00:11:21.070
  • dates. It was July the 10th of 1990 that we completely got out
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:29.200
  • of that $6 million deficit. Nine o'clock in the morning. We paid
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:33.290
  • the final TV bill. Well, I remember this one last year
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:37.210
  • because on December 6th of 2018 it was Kenneth's birthday that
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:42.190
  • day they came to me and they said the projection of $4
  • 00:11:42.200 --> 00:11:47.090
  • million is not there anymore. As a matter of fact, we now have
  • 00:11:47.100 --> 00:11:51.160
  • money in reserve. God, isn't that a testimony? That was July
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:57.150
  • the 10th of 1990 we paid Jan, your sister over accounting. She
  • 00:11:57.160 --> 00:12:04.240
  • came with the check to pay the final television bill of that $6
  • 00:12:04.250 --> 00:12:08.210
  • million deficit, and I remember it so well. It was a bright
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:12.260
  • sunny morning. I can almost remember what she was wearing.
  • 00:12:12.270 --> 00:12:15.270
  • It was so everything was so crystal clear because Gloria,
  • 00:12:15.280 --> 00:12:19.120
  • that was a major, major, a victory. This is the victory
  • 00:12:19.130 --> 00:12:23.260
  • that overcomes the world. Even our faith. GLORIA: You had to
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:28.040
  • take the victory. GEORGE: We had to take the victory on that and
  • 00:12:28.050 --> 00:12:31.180
  • this very simple three step process. It worked. It worked
  • 00:12:31.190 --> 00:12:35.200
  • for us. And so Brother Hagin applied this and he said,
  • 00:12:35.210 --> 00:12:40.010
  • Brother Hagin said this, and I quote before the Lord spoke to
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:43.040
  • me, I would pray fast, weep and cry and still barely skim by.
  • 00:12:43.050 --> 00:12:47.040
  • But after receiving this word, Brother Hagin walked over to the
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:50.180
  • church where he would be conducting a service that
  • 00:12:50.190 --> 00:12:52.280
  • evening and it's here's the bottom of your page. They're
  • 00:12:52.290 --> 00:12:56.110
  • down there. Okay, point 5. Um, he said, I stood on the platform
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:13:01.180
  • in that empty church and I said, I claim $150 this week. Say $150
  • 00:13:01.190 --> 00:13:08.000
  • is pretty good for 1949. Satan, take your hands off my finances.
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:13.160
  • Go ministering spirits and cause the money to come. He said, I
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:18.040
  • tested this out time and time again. I got the money I claimed
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:22.090
  • every time. Every time. So what do you do? The three steps? You
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:28.140
  • claim what you need. Yeah. Then you say, Satan, take your hands
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:32.080
  • off my money. That's what we did last year, Gloria. That's what
  • 00:13:32.090 --> 00:13:35.170
  • we did over that projection that we received satan, you take your
  • 00:13:35.180 --> 00:13:38.200
  • hands off our money and the ministering spirits, prosperity
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:41.130
  • angels. You go out there and you bring in the harvest. You bring
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:45.130
  • in those finances to us and he was so faithful and he was so
  • 00:13:45.140 --> 00:13:49.080
  • good to us that we came out. We came out the end of the year on
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:54.260
  • top on top. GLORIA: So, and how many months? GEORGE: Well, that
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:14:00.120
  • was may the 17th that they told me. They told me about it and
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:05.210
  • that was December the sixth May. June, July, August, September,
  • 00:14:05.220 --> 00:14:09.270
  • October and November. December. That was about seven months and
  • 00:14:09.280 --> 00:14:13.120
  • it turned Gloria. It turned, and I just believe right now there's
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:18.030
  • a turning for those people that are watching us. There is a
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:22.020
  • turning. If you claim in faith the prosperity that God has for
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:26.250
  • you, he will turn your situation around. He'll turn it around to
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:32.200
  • the place to where you will see him provide. GLORIA: If you get
  • 00:14:32.210 --> 00:14:37.270
  • serious, he'll get serious. GEORGE: Yeah, that's right.
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:41.250
  • That's exactly right. If you get, if you get, I got to write
  • 00:14:41.260 --> 00:14:46.250
  • this down. If you, if you get serious, God will get serious.
  • 00:14:46.260 --> 00:14:56.250
  • What'd you say? He'll get serious. He will get serious and
  • 00:14:56.260 --> 00:15:01.290
  • that's what we're doing. Tim, what do we have left? Five
  • 00:15:02.000 --> 00:15:04.240
  • minutes. That's good. I want to read a scripture to you. If you
  • 00:15:04.250 --> 00:15:06.290
  • go to your second page, Gloria, in claiming what you need in
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:11.030
  • Joshua 18:1 I want to read to you the first three verses, it
  • 00:15:11.040 --> 00:15:15.150
  • says, now the whole congregation of the children of Israel
  • 00:15:15.160 --> 00:15:18.000
  • assembled together at Shilo and set up the Tabernacle of meeting
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:21.150
  • there and the land was subdued before them, but there remain
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:25.110
  • among the children of Israel seven tribes which had not
  • 00:15:25.120 --> 00:15:28.220
  • received their inheritance. Then Joshua, I like Joshua. I want to
  • 00:15:28.230 --> 00:15:35.000
  • meet Joshua when I get into heaven, I just so am impressed
  • 00:15:35.010 --> 00:15:38.190
  • with him. Um, then Joshua said to the said to the children of
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:43.140
  • Israel, how, how long will you neglect to go and possess the
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:48.180
  • land, which the Lord God of your fathers has given you. GLORIA:
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:52.050
  • In another words, how long are you going to sit around here and
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:54.250
  • do nothing in modern speech. GEORGE: In modern speech. How
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:15:59.080
  • long are you going to sit around? Really, that's the
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:02.200
  • truth, Gloria. How long? How long are you going to want? How
  • 00:16:02.210 --> 00:16:05.280
  • long are you going to be slack? One of the translation says, how
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:08.130
  • long will you be slack? I like this. How long will you neglect
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:12.260
  • to go in and possess the land that the Lord God your fathers
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:15.260
  • has given you and the poor word presents in the Hebrew. It means
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:19.250
  • to take possession of, to dispossess and drive out. Ah hmm
  • 00:16:19.260 --> 00:16:25.290
  • dispossess. You've got to, you got to dispossess the devil
  • 00:16:26.000 --> 00:16:29.030
  • drive him out of your finances. GLORIA: Of your finances of your
  • 00:16:29.040 --> 00:16:33.000
  • house, of your everything. Don't give him anything. GEORGE: Now
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:38.070
  • the word claim, you are asking me a moment ago about the
  • 00:16:38.080 --> 00:16:41.000
  • definition of the word claim. I looked it up in the dictionary
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:43.200
  • and it means to take as the rightful owner. That's what
  • 00:16:43.210 --> 00:16:47.060
  • claim means. That claim to take as the rightful owner to assert
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:52.190
  • in the face of possible contradiction. You are just
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:56.030
  • talking about getting serious. I like to talk about getting
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:58.150
  • aggressive, getting a bulldog faith,getting, getting bulldog
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:17:04.000
  • faith where your provision is concerned and the supplier
  • 00:17:04.010 --> 00:17:08.060
  • getting to you what you need to take it to. Take it. Joshua 18:3
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:13.210
  • in the good news Bible, it says, how long are you gonna wait
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:17.000
  • before you go in and take the law though the land? I liked the
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:20.060
  • Gloria Copeland translation, how long you going to sit around?
  • 00:17:20.070 --> 00:17:22.290
  • GLORIA: That's right. Did I translate it translate it that
  • 00:17:23.000 --> 00:17:26.180
  • way? GEORGE: How long? How long are you going to sit around and
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:30.020
  • do nothing? Do nothing before you possessed and take the land
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:34.080
  • that belongs to you. God is the source of all that we need, but
  • 00:17:34.090 --> 00:17:38.130
  • we need to take and receive from him what he has so wonderfully
  • 00:17:38.140 --> 00:17:45.140
  • presented to us to receive by His grace. We need to take that.
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:50.190
  • We need to possess it. We need to take hold of it. GLORIA: We
  • 00:17:50.200 --> 00:17:54.000
  • found that, well, we've been walking in the word a long time.
  • 00:17:54.010 --> 00:17:58.060
  • As you know, and we found out it. Everything operates the
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:18:03.060
  • same. Whether it's a little something or a big something.
  • 00:18:03.070 --> 00:18:06.120
  • Yeah. Whether it's paying your rent are paying cash for a new
  • 00:18:06.130 --> 00:18:11.200
  • house. It operates the same way, same way it just takes one,
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:15.180
  • takes a certain amount of determination more than other.
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:19.030
  • GEORGE: That's true Gloria. GLORIA: But that's, it's a, you
  • 00:18:19.040 --> 00:18:21.160
  • know, you just receive from God by faith, the way he talks about
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:25.090
  • it and you do it and you'll get it. GEORGE: I like what you're
  • 00:18:25.100 --> 00:18:29.160
  • saying there. I like, I like the what you've just talked about,
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:33.000
  • the determination, the taking it seriously. I'm not sitting
  • 00:18:33.010 --> 00:18:37.080
  • around getting, getting serious about your faith. And boy, that
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:42.260
  • really, that strikes a chord in me because I was, I was reading
  • 00:18:42.270 --> 00:18:46.040
  • this just yesterday. Um, let me see here. This is in Hebrews 11
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:50.240
  • and faith faith is an aggressive force. It's in the Greek. It's
  • 00:18:50.250 --> 00:18:57.190
  • the word pistis, p i s t I s and it means aggressive to
  • 00:18:57.200 --> 00:19:01.020
  • aggressively take what belongs to you. And I was reading this
  • 00:19:01.030 --> 00:19:05.130
  • yesterday and Hebrews 11, let me read this to you, It says in
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:08.220
  • verse 32 and what shall I more say for the time would fail me
  • 00:19:08.230 --> 00:19:13.150
  • to tell of Gideon and Barak and of Samson and of Jephthah, of
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:16.180
  • David, of Samuel. And of the prophets who through faith
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:19.150
  • subdued kingdoms, who through faith wrought righteousness, who
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:24.210
  • through faith obtain the promises, who through faith stop
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:27.230
  • the mouths of the lions, who through faith quenched the
  • 00:19:27.240 --> 00:19:30.140
  • violence of fire, who escaped the edge of the sword, who out
  • 00:19:30.150 --> 00:19:34.020
  • of weakness were made strong. I like what the message says, turn
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:37.100
  • disadvantage into advantage and wax Valeant and fight and turn
  • 00:19:37.110 --> 00:19:41.200
  • to flight the armies of the aliens. If you are wanting to
  • 00:19:41.210 --> 00:19:45.270
  • take hold of what God has so wonderfully provided for you as
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:50.010
  • source, you need to take it with your faith. As Gloria says,
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:53.120
  • you've got to take it. You've got to be aggressive,
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:55.150
  • determined, and serious about doing this. Boy, this just got
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:59.160
  • all over me when you said that to get, we have to be serious
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:02.200
  • and determined when we were going through that projected
  • 00:20:02.210 --> 00:20:05.110
  • deficit last year, we got real serious about our faith. GLORIA:
  • 00:20:05.120 --> 00:20:09.250
  • We got seriously serious. GEORGE: Seriously serious, but
  • 00:20:09.260 --> 00:20:12.230
  • you know what? We got over it. Money has come in. Money's in
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:16.210
  • the bank, but I am no less serious today than I was when we
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:20.130
  • were dealing with that back in May of last year. You have to
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:24.010
  • maintain a place of faith and take that stand and not give up
  • 00:20:24.020 --> 00:20:28.200
  • and not quit and not give in for by faith. You will receive if
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:33.080
  • you stand and believe it will come to pass. Well, you got me
  • 00:20:33.090 --> 00:20:36.280
  • real excited about that. GLORIA: Somebody might say, well, how
  • 00:20:36.290 --> 00:20:39.080
  • can I get behind how much? GEORGE: Well, it was projected 4
  • 00:20:39.090 --> 00:20:43.090
  • million. We weren't. GLORIA: How could you do that? Well, I'll
  • 00:20:43.100 --> 00:20:46.110
  • tell you how you can have a television bill every month.
  • 00:20:46.120 --> 00:20:48.200
  • GEORGE: Exactly. Exactly. Exactly. GLORIA: I had to get
  • 00:20:48.210 --> 00:20:52.140
  • behind very far. What was it? Probably 2 or 3 million at the
  • 00:20:52.150 --> 00:20:56.120
  • time. But, but we got through. Right. If you're going to
  • 00:20:56.130 --> 00:21:00.240
  • get through, I feel stand on the word and say
  • 00:21:00.250 --> 00:21:03.190
  • the right thing. Don't give up. Don't say, well, I
  • 00:21:03.200 --> 00:21:06.050
  • guess it's just not in the Word. Don't quit
  • 00:21:06.060 --> 00:21:08.240
  • don't ever quit. George and I will be right back.
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:12.230
  • BECKY HAAS: So in 2014, um, my chief asked me to write a
  • 00:21:18.020 --> 00:21:21.150
  • grant for a called a family justice center. And so when our
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:24.260
  • governors safety plan was to create 10 family justice
  • 00:21:24.270 --> 00:21:28.200
  • centers, and what that model is, is where an individual who's a
  • 00:21:28.210 --> 00:21:32.200
  • victim of sexual or domestic violence goes to one location
  • 00:21:32.210 --> 00:21:35.270
  • and they're able to tell their story one time and they can have
  • 00:21:35.280 --> 00:21:40.200
  • help with legal and, uh, law enforcement, all the kinds of
  • 00:21:40.210 --> 00:21:45.060
  • services. I went to another town to see a family justice center.
  • 00:21:45.070 --> 00:21:49.140
  • And I heard about trauma informed care. And when I heard
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:53.180
  • it, I, I knew because of the scriptures that God is the
  • 00:21:53.190 --> 00:21:57.190
  • original lifter up of the downcast. Jesus opened his
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:01.260
  • ministry in Luke Four said that I've come to heal those whose
  • 00:22:01.270 --> 00:22:06.040
  • lives are broken down by calamity. And what this training
  • 00:22:06.050 --> 00:22:08.260
  • is, is that in the late nineties, two doctors, one in
  • 00:22:08.270 --> 00:22:12.090
  • California and one that works for the Center for disease
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:16.050
  • controls, which is pretty big in the United States. Um, and they
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:21.080
  • found, uh, by asking people 10 questions, the higher they
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:26.180
  • scored, the more likely they would use drugs, the more likely
  • 00:22:26.190 --> 00:22:30.030
  • they'd commit suicide, the more likely they'd need mental health
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:33.000
  • services. And so it showed that while these things are
  • 00:22:33.010 --> 00:22:37.030
  • predictable, we could prevent them. And so there's a phrase in
  • 00:22:37.040 --> 00:22:41.110
  • criminal justice called cradle to prison pipeline and it's
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:44.190
  • totally explains it by understanding this. So when I
  • 00:22:44.200 --> 00:22:47.220
  • first heard that I felt like the Lord said to create a system of
  • 00:22:47.230 --> 00:22:52.050
  • care in our town to train our organizations. And in less three
  • 00:22:52.060 --> 00:22:55.230
  • years, we've trained over 3.400 professionals. We now have 31
  • 00:22:55.240 --> 00:23:00.090
  • organizations including two universities and a hospital and
  • 00:23:00.100 --> 00:23:05.020
  • a health care system coming together around this education.
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:08.050
  • And on September 5th, we hosted a forum that is now said it's a
  • 00:23:08.060 --> 00:23:13.230
  • national model that was created in Johnson city to educate
  • 00:23:13.240 --> 00:23:18.080
  • your community on this. We had two governors wives come. We had
  • 00:23:18.090 --> 00:23:21.240
  • people from 20 other states come to learn about this. And I'd
  • 00:23:21.250 --> 00:23:25.190
  • never heard those words ever in my life to create a trauma
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:29.100
  • informed system of care. But step by step by step, the Lord
  • 00:23:29.110 --> 00:23:33.110
  • showed us and, and we did it. I feel very honored to be a
  • 00:23:33.120 --> 00:23:36.180
  • partner with Kenneth Copeland Ministry. And, um, uh,
  • 00:23:36.190 --> 00:23:39.120
  • partnership means a lot to me. And most recently, um, I believe
  • 00:23:39.130 --> 00:23:43.060
  • it was not this summer, last summer. Um, there was a day of
  • 00:23:43.070 --> 00:23:46.180
  • increase and pastor George was talking about acceleration and I
  • 00:23:46.190 --> 00:23:51.010
  • had really felt that in my heart. And, um, um, you know, at
  • 00:23:51.020 --> 00:23:54.230
  • the time, um, I'm believing God harvest on every seed and um,
  • 00:23:54.240 --> 00:23:58.250
  • but I felt led to so the largest seed I could into, um, the
  • 00:23:58.260 --> 00:24:03.220
  • Kenneth Copeland ministry and to latch onto that acceleration
  • 00:24:03.230 --> 00:24:06.250
  • anointing. And, and so I sowed that seed, um, online cause I
  • 00:24:06.260 --> 00:24:11.290
  • was watching the southwest believers. I was actually on my
  • 00:24:12.000 --> 00:24:14.180
  • bike riding a trail, listening to it, streaming live on my
  • 00:24:14.190 --> 00:24:18.020
  • headphones. And as soon as I got home, I went online. And sowed
  • 00:24:18.030 --> 00:24:21.190
  • that gift and said, Lord, I'm going to tap into that
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:24.110
  • acceleration anointing on my life. And it was
  • 00:24:24.120 --> 00:24:27.210
  • after that that then our university president said, we
  • 00:24:27.220 --> 00:24:32.000
  • want to be the first trauma informed university. Our
  • 00:24:32.010 --> 00:24:34.230
  • healthcare CEO, one of the hospital CEO
  • 00:24:34.240 --> 00:24:37.190
  • said, we want you to help us to be a trauma
  • 00:24:37.200 --> 00:24:40.040
  • informed hospital. So we really began to see things and then
  • 00:24:40.050 --> 00:24:43.040
  • within a few months, a federal organization, it's the substance
  • 00:24:43.050 --> 00:24:47.240
  • abuse, mental health services administration, federal
  • 00:24:47.250 --> 00:24:50.200
  • administration, each state, they probably put 60-70 million
  • 00:24:50.210 --> 00:24:54.210
  • dollars a year in each state. That's how large they said we
  • 00:24:54.220 --> 00:24:57.290
  • want to come learn from Johnson city. You've created a
  • 00:24:58.000 --> 00:25:01.020
  • national model and so by being a Kenneth Copeland partner,
  • 00:25:01.030 --> 00:25:04.130
  • I believe that in that just that's one example
  • 00:25:04.140 --> 00:25:07.020
  • of tapping into an accelerating anointed.
  • 00:25:07.030 --> 00:25:10.020
  • GEORGE: It's offering day on the believers voice of
  • 00:25:15.070 --> 00:25:16.210
  • victory. And Gloria, we had a couple of things that we wanted
  • 00:25:16.220 --> 00:25:19.150
  • to read that we didn't get to listen to this. This is a word
  • 00:25:19.160 --> 00:25:23.010
  • from the Lord through brother Copeland from 2010 for all of
  • 00:25:23.020 --> 00:25:26.090
  • you who will take my word and stand on it, say it the Lord.
  • 00:25:26.100 --> 00:25:29.120
  • The kingdom is for you. The angels are for you and all of
  • 00:25:29.130 --> 00:25:34.250
  • Heaven's reserves are at your call at your call. And so we are
  • 00:25:34.260 --> 00:25:41.070
  • so grateful for all of the offerings that come in for the
  • 00:25:41.080 --> 00:25:43.250
  • believers voice of victory broadcast. And for all that's
  • 00:25:43.260 --> 00:25:46.270
  • taking place here in Kenneth Copeland ministries, I know
  • 00:25:46.280 --> 00:25:49.250
  • around the world, all of the outreaches around the world and
  • 00:25:49.260 --> 00:25:52.150
  • the Lord is providing and supplying for you as you get. We
  • 00:25:52.160 --> 00:25:56.090
  • pray for you. We pray for the partners every single day that
  • 00:25:56.100 --> 00:25:59.070
  • the Lord is prospering them, increasing them in, and getting
  • 00:25:59.080 --> 00:26:03.000
  • them to a place where every bill is paid. Every need is met in
  • 00:26:03.010 --> 00:26:06.160
  • every debt is wiped out in the name of Jesus. Yes. And so as
  • 00:26:06.170 --> 00:26:10.070
  • you give and you so into this, it's a powerful thing. And we
  • 00:26:10.080 --> 00:26:13.290
  • want to do this. We want to make this confession of faith. So
  • 00:26:14.000 --> 00:26:17.060
