  • I know my God has the way for me.
  • 00:00:11.290 --> 00:00:20.240
  • ANNOUNCER: Extraordinary challenges demand extraordinary
  • 00:00:21.210 --> 00:00:24.030
  • actions. Join Kenneth Copeland today as he explains how to
  • 00:00:24.040 --> 00:00:27.250
  • release your faith like David did and claim victory every
  • 00:00:27.260 --> 00:00:31.050
  • time. Next on the Believers Voice of Victory.
  • 00:00:31.060 --> 00:00:35.110
  • KENNETH: We've been talking about the
  • 00:00:37.220 --> 00:00:39.250
  • fundamentals of faith. Believe it in your heart. Say it with
  • 00:00:39.260 --> 00:00:44.040
  • your mouth, corresponding action. So let's go now and
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:54.220
  • check this out. We've checked it out all over the New Testament.
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:01:00.150
  • So now then First Samuel, Chapter 17. The Battle Chapter.
  • 00:01:00.160 --> 00:01:13.140
  • Hallelujah. This is when Goliath made David king. You think
  • 00:01:13.150 --> 00:01:21.060
  • Samuel made him king? No, Goliath made him king. His
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:26.030
  • victories and it wasn't a light victory. It was a victory. It
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:31.250
  • was a victory of and that was won, lost and won with words.
  • 00:01:31.260 --> 00:01:41.060
  • Faith and words, are you listening to me? Now the
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:45.170
  • Philistines gathered together their armies to battle them. We
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:49.000
  • gathered together and Socoh, which belonged to Judah and
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:52.040
  • pitch between Socoh and Azekah and Ephes Dammim. Saul and the
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:58.280
  • men of Israel were gathered together and pitched by the
  • 00:01:58.290 --> 00:02:02.000
  • Valley of Elah and set the battle in array against the
  • 00:02:02.010 --> 00:02:04.170
  • Philistines. The Philistines stood on a mountain on one side,
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:07.010
  • and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side, and there was
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:11.000
  • a Valley between them. And there went out a champion out of the
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:15.150
  • camp of Goliath out of the Philistines named Goliath of
  • 00:02:15.160 --> 00:02:19.280
  • Gath, whose height was nine foot seven. Nine foot seven. Yo. He
  • 00:02:19.290 --> 00:02:32.100
  • had a helmet of brass on his head. He was armed with a coat
  • 00:02:32.110 --> 00:02:36.280
  • of mail. And the weight of the coat was 125 pounds. Can you
  • 00:02:36.290 --> 00:02:44.130
  • imagine a man with a coat on that weighed 125 pounds? Wow. He
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:50.180
  • had greaves of brass upon his legs. His [lagerns] were, were
  • 00:02:50.190 --> 00:02:56.250
  • brass. And a target of brass between his shoulders. The staff
  • 00:02:56.260 --> 00:03:01.200
  • of his spear was like a weaver's beam and the head of his spear,
  • 00:03:01.210 --> 00:03:07.230
  • the head of it, weighed 15 pounds and he's going to throw
  • 00:03:07.240 --> 00:03:14.040
  • that thing. Whoa. Wonder what he weighed? Woah, there's a big
  • 00:03:14.050 --> 00:03:23.260
  • boy. He stood and cried under the armies of Israel and said
  • 00:03:23.270 --> 00:03:31.200
  • unto them, "Why are you come out to set your battle in array? And
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:37.080
  • I'm not I a Philistine. And you servants to Saul?" Now you can
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:41.020
  • catch onto something right there. You know that the
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:52.080
  • scripture says that Saul was head and shoulders taller than
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:04:00.100
  • any man in Israel. Now if you just figure it a little bit.
  • 00:04:00.110 --> 00:04:09.030
  • Saul is seven feet, but this other guy's nine foot seven. But
  • 00:04:09.040 --> 00:04:21.040
  • I can tell now, Saul is well known for combat powerful combat
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:28.110
  • soldier. I believe that Goliath is wanting to fight Saul and
  • 00:04:28.120 --> 00:04:37.050
  • he's trying to egg him on to get Saul out here. Well, the King
  • 00:04:37.060 --> 00:04:42.180
  • had no business out there doing that and he knows that. Anyway,
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:47.050
  • be that as it may. Verse nine, or choose a man for you. Let him
  • 00:04:47.060 --> 00:04:59.210
  • come down to me. If he'd be able to fight with me and kill me,
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:03.160
  • then we will be your servants. But if I prevail against him and
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:09.060
  • kill him, then shall you be our servants and serve us. The
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:12.240
  • Philistine said, "I defy the armies of Israel this day. Give
  • 00:05:12.250 --> 00:05:16.090
  • me a man that we may fight together." Now this guy did this
  • 00:05:16.100 --> 00:05:19.110
  • twice a day for six weeks. Are you listening to me? This would
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:30.170
  • get very old. Saul and all Israel heard those words of the
  • 00:05:30.180 --> 00:05:37.070
  • Philistines. They were dismayed and greatly afraid. Now, David
  • 00:05:37.080 --> 00:05:41.120
  • was the son of the Ephrathite. Of Bethlehem, Judah, whose name
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:46.260
  • was Jessie, and he had eight sons. And the man went among men
  • 00:05:46.270 --> 00:05:51.090
  • for an old man in the days of Saul. Very distinguished man.
  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:58.250
  • And the three eldest sons of Jesse went and followed Saul to
  • 00:05:58.260 --> 00:06:02.190
  • the battle. The names of his three sons that went into the
  • 00:06:02.200 --> 00:06:05.270
  • battle. Eliab have the first born next to him, Abinadab. And
  • 00:06:05.280 --> 00:06:10.180
  • the third Shammah. David was the youngest. The three eldest
  • 00:06:10.190 --> 00:06:16.040
  • followed Saul. Now that gives us a clue to the age of David
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:21.020
  • because if you were 20 years old or older, you had to go into the
  • 00:06:21.030 --> 00:06:26.130
  • army. Well, obviously he's under 20. So, he could have been 19 he
  • 00:06:26.140 --> 00:06:34.160
  • could have been as young as 17. And but we do know that he's
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:41.180
  • just a kid. I mean a very young, just teenage boy. David rose up
  • 00:06:41.190 --> 00:06:48.100
  • early in the morning, left the sheep with a keeper and took and
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:51.130
  • went and as Jesse had commanded him, he said, "You go down there
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:54.130
  • and take this to your brothers and take their report on how the
  • 00:06:54.140 --> 00:06:57.110
  • battle is going on." And, and he came to the camp as the host was
  • 00:06:57.120 --> 00:07:03.030
  • going forth to the fight and shouted for the battle for
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:06.030
  • Israel and the Philistines had put the battle in array, army
  • 00:07:06.040 --> 00:07:09.090
  • against army. And David left his packages in the hand of the
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:12.270
  • keeper of the carriage and ran into the army and came and
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:16.030
  • saluted his brethren. And as he talked with him, here came the
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:20.130
  • champion Philistine of Gath. Goliath by name, out of the
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:24.070
  • armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same
  • 00:07:24.080 --> 00:07:27.280
  • words. And David heard him. And all the men of Israel, when they
  • 00:07:27.290 --> 00:07:31.260
  • saw the man fled from him and were sore afraid. And the men of
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:36.180
  • Israel said, "Have you seen this man that has come up surely to
  • 00:07:36.190 --> 00:07:39.270
  • defy Israel, has come up, and it shall be that the man who kills
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:43.030
  • him, the King will enrich him with great riches. Give him his
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:45.200
  • daughter and make his father's house exempt from taxes in
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:50.050
  • Israel." David spoke to the men who stood by him, said "What
  • 00:07:50.060 --> 00:07:53.230
  • will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:56.230
  • away the reproach from Israel? For who is this?" Now, notice,
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:07:59.200
  • notice who is this uncircumcised Philistine? Now, David has
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:09.280
  • already done some pretty terrible combat with a lion and
  • 00:08:09.290 --> 00:08:15.190
  • a bear. Huh. I am totally convinced. Completely convinced.
  • 00:08:15.200 --> 00:08:27.210
  • Now David, David is a Jew. His dad is an educated man. A
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:37.150
  • powerful man. Huh? David had heard the stories of Samson. I'm
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:48.230
  • convinced of it because he did the same things that Samson did.
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:55.140
  • He killed a lion with his bare hands. This is a teenage kid.
  • 00:08:55.150 --> 00:09:03.060
  • He's not a big guy, but he's got a covenant with God. This is the
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:10.160
  • same man that said, "The Lord is my shepherd. He's my shepherd."
  • 00:09:10.170 --> 00:09:15.210
  • Glory to God. I said, hallelujah. CONGREGATION:
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:18.290
  • Hallelujah. KENNETH: Thank you Jesus. Oh, don't you love it?
  • 00:09:19.000 --> 00:09:28.230
  • And he, David said to Saul, "Let no man's heart fail because of
  • 00:09:28.240 --> 00:09:35.290
  • him." And his brothers, they got on him. And he said, "What have
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:42.050
  • I done? Is there not a cause?" He actually said, "I only ask
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:48.140
  • when it a good question. Is there not a cause?" He's a
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:53.140
  • teenager and his older brother's ragging him out again. I only
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:10:01.220
  • add, yeah, the family fuss is going on right out there in that
  • 00:10:01.230 --> 00:10:10.020
  • valley. I have an idea that David's pretty pampered. Because
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:18.110
  • he's... well anyway. And when the words were heard, which
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:24.160
  • David spoke, they rehearsed them before Saul and he sent for him.
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:27.150
  • David said to Saul, "Let no man's heart fail because of him.
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:30.230
  • Thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine." And Saul
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:34.010
  • said to David, "You're not able to go against this Philistine to
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:36.200
  • fight with him. You're nothing but a youth. And he's a man of
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:39.120
  • war from his youth." David said to Saul, "Thy servant kept his
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:43.250
  • father's sheep and there came a lion and a bear and took a lamb
  • 00:10:43.260 --> 00:10:47.270
  • out of the flock. And I went out after him." That man, he had to
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:53.090
  • catch him. I went out after him and smote him. Whoa. I smote him
  • 00:10:53.100 --> 00:11:04.160
  • and delivered it out of his mouth. And when he rose up
  • 00:11:04.170 --> 00:11:08.190
  • against me, I caught him by his beard and smote him and slew
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:13.090
  • him. Boy, the anointing of God came on that little, get that
  • 00:11:13.100 --> 00:11:17.190
  • little man and he just killed mister lion and mister bear
  • 00:11:17.200 --> 00:11:21.110
  • right there on the spot. Saved his lambs. That's a type of
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:25.190
  • Jesus, you know, there we were in the very jaws of death. Then
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:30.260
  • he just came in and we excepted him as Lord and savior and he
  • 00:11:30.270 --> 00:11:37.050
  • just ripped us out of the hands of the devil and just kicked the
  • 00:11:37.060 --> 00:11:43.180
  • devil out of our lives. Oh, Glory to God, our champion.
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:49.230
  • Thank you Lord Jesus. Glory to God. KENNETH: Thank you, Lord.
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:58.110
  • KENNETH: And this uncircumcised, covenant-less Philistine shall
  • 00:11:58.120 --> 00:12:04.080
  • be as one of them, seeing as he defied the armies of the living
  • 00:12:04.090 --> 00:12:07.210
  • God. And then David said, "Moreover." He got a little
  • 00:12:07.220 --> 00:12:10.140
  • stronger here, the anointing's coming on him. See, "The Lord
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:13.170
  • that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, the paw of the
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:16.020
  • bear, deliver me out of the hands of this Philistine." And
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:18.010
  • Saul said to David, "Go and the Lord be with you." And Saul
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:22.030
  • armed him with his armor and put a helmet of brass upon his head,
  • 00:12:22.040 --> 00:12:25.230
  • turned with him a coat of mail and David girded with his sword
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:28.260
  • upon his armor. And he said to go for he'd not proved it. And
  • 00:12:28.270 --> 00:12:33.040
  • he said to Saul, "I can't go with these. I haven't proven. I
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:36.160
  • haven't trained with this. I don't know how to use this." And
  • 00:12:36.170 --> 00:12:39.020
  • he took them off, he laid aside the weight that so easily beset
  • 00:12:39.030 --> 00:12:43.120
  • him. CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: Huh? CONGREGATION: Amen.
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:47.090
  • KENNETH: Wasn't any sin here. But here's some armor that was
  • 00:12:47.100 --> 00:12:50.040
  • way too heavy. He just shucked that. I don't need that. All of
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:55.190
  • this stuff was made for hand to hand combat. He never intended
  • 00:12:55.200 --> 00:12:58.110
  • to get anywhere close to that giant. He intended to kill him
  • 00:12:58.120 --> 00:13:02.130
  • with that rock. Flat intending to kill him. If he did get in
  • 00:13:02.140 --> 00:13:07.050
  • close, he had that Shepherd's hook. That's a dangerous weapon,
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:16.170
  • but somewhere he just discarded that. Now listen to this, he
  • 00:13:16.180 --> 00:13:22.260
  • took his staff in his hand, chose him five smooth stones and
  • 00:13:22.270 --> 00:13:27.200
  • it didn't take but one, he had a five shooter, but it only took
  • 00:13:27.210 --> 00:13:30.020
  • one shot. Out of the Brook, put them in a shepherd's bag, which
  • 00:13:30.030 --> 00:13:35.040
  • he had even in a script and his sling was in his hand and he
  • 00:13:35.050 --> 00:13:38.260
  • drew near the Philistine. Oh, that stupid stuff you see in the
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:43.140
  • movies. Like he's out here. You're doing... Come on. Boy
  • 00:13:43.150 --> 00:13:49.190
  • that... Just bull. The Philistine came on and drew near
  • 00:13:49.200 --> 00:13:53.190
  • to David. The man that bear his shield went before him, the
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:57.190
  • Philistine look about and showed David and he disdained him for,
  • 00:13:57.200 --> 00:14:00.230
  • he was but a youth and ruddy. And of a fair countenance. The
  • 00:14:00.240 --> 00:14:05.200
  • Philistine said to David, the Philistine said it, the devil
  • 00:14:05.210 --> 00:14:10.220
  • knows he's got to say it. He knows how it works, but he has
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:13.280
  • to say it with fear, not faith, but fear, it works for him.
  • 00:14:13.290 --> 00:14:17.050
  • Fear. It works for him. Am I a dog? Yeah. That thou comest to
  • 00:14:17.060 --> 00:14:25.070
  • me with saves? The Philistine cursed David by his God. and the
  • 00:14:25.080 --> 00:14:31.050
  • Philistine or the devil said to David, "You come to me, I'll
  • 00:14:31.060 --> 00:14:36.170
  • give your flesh under the fowls of the air and under the beasts
  • 00:14:36.180 --> 00:14:43.000
  • of the field." And those were the last words of his life. It's
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:50.220
  • time for the devil to have the last words of his existence in
  • 00:14:50.230 --> 00:14:56.020
  • our lives. And look what happened. Then David said it.
  • 00:14:56.030 --> 00:15:05.070
  • David said it. Say it. David said it. He believed it in his
  • 00:15:05.080 --> 00:15:12.000
  • heart. You know he did because he has a covenant with God. He
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:16.020
  • knows what God's word has said. He is a man of the word and he
  • 00:15:16.030 --> 00:15:19.100
  • believed it in his heart and he said it with his mouth and he
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:22.150
  • wasn't quiet about it. Glory to God. Out of the abundance of his
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:27.110
  • heart, his mouth spoke and shouted. He came at him. David
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:32.000
  • said to this Philistine, "You come to me with a sword and with
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:36.060
  • a spear and with a shield, I come to you in the name. I come
  • 00:15:36.070 --> 00:15:40.000
  • to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, Lord of hosts, Lord of
  • 00:15:40.010 --> 00:15:47.270
  • hosts." That's the Lord of the angelic host. Angels were all
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:51.150
  • over that. That battle field that day. Come on, come on. Come
  • 00:15:51.160 --> 00:15:55.070
  • on. Your ministering spirit kid with you all the time.
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:58.060
  • Hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Hallelujah.
  • 00:15:58.070 --> 00:16:06.090
  • CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: And I will. I'm not
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:11.150
  • going to try. I will. CONGREGATION: I will. KENNETH: I
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:15.090
  • will smite thee. I will take your head from you and I will
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:25.000
  • give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day to
  • 00:16:25.010 --> 00:16:30.050
  • the fowls of the air and to the wild beast of the earth that all
  • 00:16:30.060 --> 00:16:34.180
  • the earth may know. There's a God in Israel. Boy, he's on it,
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:42.250
  • isn't he? And he's on him like a bad habit, brother. Whoa, man,
  • 00:16:42.260 --> 00:16:49.090
  • don't you love it? And all this assembly shall know that the
  • 00:16:49.100 --> 00:16:55.230
  • Lord saveth us not with a sword and spear for the battle is the
  • 00:16:55.240 --> 00:17:00.040
  • Lord's. And he will give you into our hands. He will. He'll
  • 00:17:00.050 --> 00:17:05.100
  • give you into our hands. And it came to pass when the Philistine
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:09.070
  • arose, came and drew nigh to meet David. David hasted and
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:14.130
  • ran, ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. He's running.
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:21.040
  • And while he's running, he's got his eye on this guy, while he's
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:26.000
  • running, he reaches in that shepherd's bag. He didn't take
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:29.050
  • his eye, he didn't have to. Man. He was so good with this thing.
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:32.160
  • He had practiced with this and practiced with this. David knows
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:36.060
  • right where that rock is. I mean, he's running, he's running
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:40.110
  • toward this guy boy, I mean like a rifle bullet. And that angel
  • 00:17:40.120 --> 00:17:47.040
  • right behind that rock. The Lord of hosts, one little small spot,
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:59.200
  • the only little... of Course that guys heads this big, it's a
  • 00:17:59.210 --> 00:18:02.290
  • pretty good target. Big as a basketball. But that one little
  • 00:18:03.000 --> 00:18:08.250
  • spot right there, right between his eyes. And down he went. God,
  • 00:18:08.260 --> 00:18:21.090
  • I love it. Thank you Lord Jesus. He ran and smote the Philistine
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:33.080
  • in his forehead. The stones shrunk into his forehead and he
  • 00:18:33.090 --> 00:18:37.270
  • fell upon his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the
  • 00:18:37.280 --> 00:18:42.220
  • Philistine with a sling and with a stone and smote the Philistine
  • 00:18:42.230 --> 00:18:46.260
  • and slew him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.
  • 00:18:46.270 --> 00:18:50.090
  • Therefore, David ran and stood upon the Philistine and took his
  • 00:18:50.100 --> 00:18:53.290
  • sword. Drew it out of the sheath thereof and slew him and cut off
  • 00:18:54.000 --> 00:18:57.270
  • his head therewith the Philistine army and saw the
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:19:00.140
  • champion was dead, they ran off. But now wait a minute. Wait,
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:03.290
  • stop back up. Did he kill him with the rock or the sword? It
  • 00:19:04.000 --> 00:19:11.100
  • said he smote him with the rock and slew him. He took off his
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:15.070
  • sword and slew him. The rock was a kill shot, but the sword
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:21.260
  • finished him right on the spot. It was a kill shot, but that
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:29.250
  • sword just finished him off right then and there and he just
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:33.220
  • picked his head up. I'm going to close with this. He took his
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:41.150
  • head and his armor and he put it in his room. In his tent. He's
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:53.010
  • just a kid. He puts everything in his room. But he's got his
  • 00:19:53.020 --> 00:20:00.090
  • blood dripping giant head... A teenage boy had just killed a
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:09.020
  • biggest man on the planet. Come on, glory be to God. And don't
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:16.020
  • you put your teenagers down when they're full of the Holy Ghost
  • 00:20:16.030 --> 00:20:19.130
  • and they want to tackle a Goliath. You say, come on
  • 00:20:19.140 --> 00:20:21.180
  • sweetheart, let's go get him. Let's go after it. You can do
  • 00:20:21.190 --> 00:20:24.200
  • this thing in Christ Jesus. But first we're going to pray. We're
  • 00:20:24.210 --> 00:20:31.240
  • Christians. Well, maybe you know, we're Americans. You can
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:36.070
  • be anything you want to be. No, can't. You don't need to be
  • 00:20:36.080 --> 00:20:41.000
  • doing that. You're going to be exactly what God's called you to
  • 00:20:41.010 --> 00:20:44.220
  • be. Don't go in and say, "Now, Mama wants you to be a lawyer."
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:51.060
  • It don't make no difference. Momma, what you want. It's what
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:55.040
  • God wants. In train child up to seek God for himself. Would you
  • 00:20:55.050 --> 00:21:02.050
  • stand with me? Please stand with me. Lift your hands and let's
  • 00:21:02.060 --> 00:21:08.070
  • glorify the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords. Our champion, the
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:14.140
  • champion of all champions, glory be to God. No wonder, no wonder.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:22.070
  • No wonder Jesus is called the son of David. Hallelujah. David,
  • 00:21:22.080 --> 00:21:28.050
  • a man after God's own heart and you my dear sir, you my dear
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:33.050
  • sister. You are people after God's own heart. We are Holy
  • 00:21:33.060 --> 00:21:38.100
  • Ghost champions. We never quit. We never give up. We stand on
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:42.090
  • that word and we never turn it loose
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:45.010
  • and we never stop and we'd never quit.
  • 00:21:45.020 --> 00:21:47.100
  • FEMALE: I love these because I am with so many people who are
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:08.030
  • just going to go higher and higher it's amazing. You go
  • 00:22:08.040 --> 00:22:10.130
  • higher. Stop the fear believe all you will be made whole. And
  • 00:22:10.140 --> 00:22:20.150
  • higher. Stop the fear believe all you will be made whole. And
  • 00:22:20.150 --> 00:22:25.130
  • what I loved about it, that it was diverse. It wasn't,
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:29.060
  • everybody didn't look the same and so it felt like a
  • 00:22:29.070 --> 00:22:31.180
  • representation of heaven. I know coming to this meeting, I am
  • 00:22:31.190 --> 00:22:41.110
  • going to get the word unfiltered undiluted, uncompromised. And
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:50.100
  • we're not moved by what we see and we're not moved by way feel.
  • 00:22:50.110 --> 00:22:53.010
  • We're moved only by what we believe. And we believe the word
  • 00:22:53.020 --> 00:22:56.080
  • of God. If you want to sit under that anointing, you've got to
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:23:05.150
  • come. You've got to come and just be a part of it. The first
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:12.220
  • scripture that came to me that I was able to remember, the memory
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:18.050
  • of the upright is blessed. Amen. You may rest assured sayeth up
  • 00:23:18.060 --> 00:23:24.090
  • the Lord, I will never quit. I will never leave you. I will
  • 00:23:24.100 --> 00:23:27.060
  • never forsake you. I'm with you and in you for the rest of
  • 00:23:27.070 --> 00:23:30.060
  • eternity. And together we'll do this thing and together we'll
  • 00:23:30.070 --> 00:23:34.100
  • run. And together we'll walk and together we'll do victory. And
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:38.180
  • together we'll have the time of our lives so rejoice and be glad
  • 00:23:38.190 --> 00:23:42.250
  • for this is a great time sayeth the Lord.
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:45.250
  • JEREMY: The messages that you've seen
  • 00:23:50.180 --> 00:23:52.000
  • this week came from the Midwest Victory
  • 00:23:52.010 --> 00:23:53.160
  • Campaign in the Detroit, Michigan area and you just saw
  • 00:23:53.170 --> 00:23:57.040
  • highlights from that event and there was a great flow of the
  • 00:23:57.050 --> 00:24:00.280
  • revelation of the word of God. You can see that and today on
  • 00:24:00.290 --> 00:24:03.210
  • the broadcast, every Friday is offering day. And what you need
  • 00:24:03.220 --> 00:24:07.180
  • to realize is when you sow back into the ministry, these
  • 00:24:07.190 --> 00:24:10.050
  • meetings that you're seeing, this is what you're a part of
  • 00:24:10.060 --> 00:24:13.170
  • and you through faith and through sewing financially as
  • 00:24:13.180 --> 00:24:19.020
  • the Lord leads you, I know this is a strange thought for some
  • 00:24:19.030 --> 00:24:21.210
  • people, but you are standing right there alongside Kenneth
  • 00:24:21.220 --> 00:24:24.210
  • and Gloria Copeland preaching this uncompromised word of
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:27.070
  • faith. And you think, well, I'm not a preacher. When you sow
  • 00:24:27.080 --> 00:24:30.110
  • into a ministry, you are responsible for preaching this
  • 00:24:30.120 --> 00:24:33.200
  • gospel. That's how the Lord sees it. So when I read this to you
  • 00:24:33.210 --> 00:24:36.240
  • again from the book of Galatians, chapter six, verse
  • 00:24:36.250 --> 00:24:39.090
  • six it says, let him who is taught the word share in all
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:43.000
  • good things with him who teaches, do not be deceived. God
  • 00:24:43.010 --> 00:24:46.190
  • is not mocked for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. If
  • 00:24:46.200 --> 00:24:52.030
  • you've heard good word this week, if you've heard something
  • 00:24:52.040 --> 00:24:55.010
  • even today on this broadcast that's affected your life, go
  • 00:24:55.020 --> 00:24:57.230
  • before the Lord and say, "Okay Lord, how do I respond to this?
  • 00:24:57.240 --> 00:25:00.210
  • How do I make sure that the word that I've heard then goes out,
  • 00:25:00.220 --> 00:25:03.190
  • doesn't stop with me, but it goes out and affects people all
  • 00:25:03.200 --> 00:25:07.220
  • over the world?" And then just listen at the Lord's got an
  • 00:25:07.230 --> 00:25:10.100
  • assignment for you in this ministry to partner with Kenneth
  • 00:25:10.110 --> 00:25:13.070
  • and Gloria Copeland. Then do it. Then do it quick, but I'm
  • 00:25:13.080 --> 00:25:15.130
  • telling you this, he's got an assignment for you somewhere to
  • 00:25:15.140 --> 00:25:20.010
  • sow into somebody who's preaching Jesus. Father in Jesus

  • name we receive the giving of the people today. We thank you

  • father for leading and guiding us as we sow and we receive the
