  • KENNETH: Open your Bibles to mark chapter
  • 00:00:48.270 --> 00:00:50.290
  • 10 verse 17 please. "When Jesus was gone forth into the
  • 00:00:51.000 --> 00:01:01.040
  • way, there came one running and kneeled to him and ask him,
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:08.160
  • 'Good master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal
  • 00:01:08.170 --> 00:01:14.060
  • life?' Jesus said unto him, 'Why callest thou me good? There is
  • 00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:22.130
  • none good but one and that is God. Thou knowest the
  • 00:01:22.140 --> 00:01:27.120
  • commandments. Do not commit adultery. Do not kill. Do not
  • 00:01:27.130 --> 00:01:33.230
  • steal. Do not bear false witness, defraud not, honor thy
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:39.080
  • father and thy mother.' And he answered and said unto Him,
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:44.290
  • 'Master or rabbi, all these have I observed from my youth.'
  • 00:01:45.000 --> 00:01:50.150
  • That's why he was wealthy. You understand? That's why he was
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:56.080
  • wealthy, "Jesus. Beholding him, loved him," glory, money and
  • 00:01:56.090 --> 00:02:04.060
  • all. He loved him and He said to him, "One thing thou lackest go
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:10.050
  • that way. Sell whatsoever thou has give it to the poor and thou
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:17.010
  • shall have treasure in heaven and come and take up the cross
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:20.250
  • and follow me.'" I want you to notice something here. This,
  • 00:02:20.260 --> 00:02:26.110
  • this is a side issue, but in one way, but yet it's very, very,
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:30.090
  • very important. The only people that Jesus said, come and follow
  • 00:02:30.100 --> 00:02:37.050
  • me, became apostles. He said that to the apostles of the
  • 00:02:37.060 --> 00:02:43.260
  • lamb, the 12 was this not a proper replacement for Judas.
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:52.200
  • Good thought isn't it. Amen. "And he was sad at that saying,
  • 00:02:52.210 --> 00:03:03.160
  • and went away. Grieved for he had great possessions."
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:07.010
  • Now grief. Grief is a killer. Grief, particularly when you
  • 00:03:07.020 --> 00:03:18.220
  • hadn't lost anything yet. Depression is
  • 00:03:18.230 --> 00:03:22.110
  • grieving over stuff you hadn't lost. It's a mean
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:26.020
  • thing, depression is. Grief is a sense of loss. He didn't..
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:35.240
  • That, that's fine. He was sad that, well, it's not fun, but,
  • 00:03:35.250 --> 00:03:41.020
  • but, but he, he was, he's still all right. He's grieved, he's
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:47.070
  • still all right. But he didn't have to go away. That was a bad
  • 00:03:47.080 --> 00:03:53.210
  • decision. He could've said, "Jesus, I don't understand that.
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:04:00.090
  • I had more, I had more confidence in you than that, and
  • 00:04:00.100 --> 00:04:07.250
  • I'm mad and I'm hurt, but I'm not leaving." You've got the
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:17.060
  • words of life. I'm gonna stay with you. Changed the whole
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:21.210
  • situation. Amen. Now, then, "Jesus looked around about and
  • 00:04:21.220 --> 00:04:28.020
  • Saith unto His disciples. How hardly shall they that have
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:32.140
  • riches enter into the Kingdom of God?" And the disciples were
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:39.190
  • astonished at His words, but Jesus answereth again and saith
  • 00:04:39.200 --> 00:04:45.250
  • unto them, 'Children how hard it is for them that trust in riches
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:49.170
  • to enter into the Kingdom of God.'" It is easier for a camel
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:56.000
  • to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:59.020
  • enter into the Kingdom of God. Now, I had a news media person
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:06.090
  • say this to me in challenging me over wealth and stuff, and she
  • 00:05:06.100 --> 00:05:12.070
  • quoted that to me. It's easier for a camel to go through the
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:16.060
  • eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:19.000
  • God. And I said you need to read the rest of that. Jesus said.
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:27.110
  • Now look, how hard is it for them that trust in Riches, not
  • 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:39.250
  • that he's rich. A trust in the riches. That's what this man was
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:45.020
  • doing and it cost him. I think now you know that there's just
  • 00:05:45.030 --> 00:05:50.130
  • between you and me and God, but I think it cost him apostleship,
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:56.230
  • at that time, tradition says it was Barnabas. Now, I haven't
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:06:08.220
  • studied it deeply enough to be able to really confirm that. I
  • 00:06:08.230 --> 00:06:12.110
  • believe it was. Amen. Then He said it's easier for a camel to
  • 00:06:12.120 --> 00:06:22.280
  • go through the eye of a needle then for a rich man to enter
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:25.110
  • into the Kingdom of God, and these real poor guy's said, yeah
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:29.010
  • I know that true. They were astonished out of measure saying
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:35.030
  • among themselves who then can be saved. Jesus looking up on them
  • 00:06:35.040 --> 00:06:42.130
  • saith. Now I want to. Yeah, I'm not, I'm not through with that.
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:46.150
  • Every man on His staff was wealthy. every one of them. It's
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:54.250
  • a little shaky how Matthew got His but, but anyway, anyway,
  • 00:06:54.260 --> 00:06:59.200
  • ...He's a wealthy guy, man. Glory to God. Oh,
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:04.270
  • you know, I mean, he's a tax collector and there's, you know,
  • 00:07:04.280 --> 00:07:08.110
  • the little... but that all stopped didn't it? Praise God!
  • 00:07:08.120 --> 00:07:16.010
  • Thank you, Lord. "Jesus, looking upon them sayeth, 'With men. It
  • 00:07:16.020 --> 00:07:24.000
  • is impossible, but with God, with God, all things are
  • 00:07:24.010 --> 00:07:34.270
  • possible.'" With men, it is impossible, with God all things
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:41.280
  • are possible. Who are you with? I'm with
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:47.100
  • God. All things are possible to you. All things are just
  • 00:07:47.110 --> 00:07:54.030
  • as possible with you and with me as they all with God,
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:57.100
  • when we're with God! Hallelujah. Come on, give the Lord a praise
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:08:03.010
  • shout! Hallelujah. There's a lot of shouting in this room
  • 00:08:03.020 --> 00:08:07.110
  • tonight.. Thank you Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:12.240
  • With men, it is impossible, but not with
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:18.290
  • God. For with God, all things are possible.
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:24.010
  • "Then Peter began to say unto him, 'Lo, we
  • 00:08:24.020 --> 00:08:27.090
  • have left all and followed thee,' "Jesus answered
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:31.070
  • and said, 'Verily. I say unto you, there is no man, no person
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:36.200
  • that has left house or brethren or sisters or father or mother
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:46.080
  • or wife or children, or lands for my sake and the gospels, but
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:55.230
  • he shall receive a hundred fold now in this time," houses,
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:09:01.260
  • brethren, sisters, mothers, children, not wives. "'And lands
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:11.280
  • brethren, sisters, mothers, children, not wives. "'And lands
  • 00:09:11.280 --> 00:09:20.280
  • with persecutions.'" Of course the persecutions are coming,
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:26.070
  • Of course they are. Put a smile on your rich face.
  • 00:09:26.080 --> 00:09:30.080
  • Cause it's coming. I can't tell you how much I don't care. But
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:38.210
  • now listen, you came in, kidding around about it. People are not
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:43.150
  • the problem. We don't wrestle with flesh and blood. We wrestle
  • 00:09:43.160 --> 00:09:47.090
  • with demons. Devils. The devil is just as real as God. That's
  • 00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:56.200
  • where the comparison ends. He is no good, and he is what... he's
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:10:05.080
  • the one that causes people to make bad choices. Amen. I love
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:15.100
  • people, I hate the devil with a passion. He shall receive a
  • 00:10:15.110 --> 00:10:21.130
  • hundred-fold now. Say now. CONGREGATION: Now. KENNETH: Now.
  • 00:10:21.140 --> 00:10:25.020
  • CONGREGATION: Now. KENNETH: Now. CONGREGATION: Now. KENNETH: You
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:27.170
  • cannot say now a while ago. Every time you say now it
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:34.100
  • upgrades. Every time you say now it catches up. Now.
  • 00:10:34.110 --> 00:10:38.100
  • CONGREGATION: Now. KENNETH: Now. There is therefore now no
  • 00:10:38.110 --> 00:10:46.040
  • condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Now. The first
  • 00:10:46.050 --> 00:10:51.190
  • time we said now is gone. Now. He shall receive a hundred-fold
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:11:03.120
  • now in this time... Or in his lifetime, houses, brethren,
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:14.200
  • sisters, mothers, children, lands. "With persecution
  • 00:11:14.210 --> 00:11:20.060
  • and in the world come eternal life. But many that are first
  • 00:11:20.070 --> 00:11:26.010
  • shall be last and the last first.'" Praise God. You know
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:32.140
  • what that is? That is your true lifetime Jesus' care program. I
  • 00:11:32.150 --> 00:11:46.090
  • mean when Gloria and I were Oral Roberts University, and I've, I
  • 00:11:46.100 --> 00:11:49.230
  • tried to explain it, but you need to get the sense of this.
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:52.030
  • Gloria would go in the supermarket and pray in tongues
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:12:00.110
  • that she would not have to take anything back at the checkout
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:06.000
  • counter. Because we had so little money. And never did have
  • 00:12:06.010 --> 00:12:12.190
  • to. So that, that was the condition. And I saw that the
  • 00:12:12.200 --> 00:12:22.210
  • to. So that, that was the condition. And I saw that the
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:29.130
  • blessing of Abraham has come on Gloria and me. Well, I wonder
  • 00:12:29.140 --> 00:12:38.130
  • what that means. See, I was scripturally illiterate. I
  • 00:12:38.140 --> 00:12:43.270
  • hadn't read this book. And I believed it, but I hadn't read
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:49.150
  • it. Now I got that from my mom and dad, mother read it and
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:53.150
  • daddy believed it. Whatever, whatever Veneta said that it
  • 00:12:53.160 --> 00:12:59.060
  • said its said and he believed every word of it. And later, I
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:04.040
  • mean, he was 60 something years old he decided he was going to
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:09.100
  • start reading the Bible and, and he said, "Kenneth, this is
  • 00:13:09.110 --> 00:13:12.000
  • wonderful." Oh God. I don't say he never read it, of course. But
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:16.260
  • he didn't study it and he was like the man in the book of
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:20.110
  • James. He read it and loved it, but not with the idea of acting
  • 00:13:20.120 --> 00:13:24.110
  • on it and so forth. But then after that, both got filled with
  • 00:13:24.120 --> 00:13:29.000
  • the Holy Spirit. And after I began to teach the Word of faith
  • 00:13:29.010 --> 00:13:32.140
  • and the Lord told my mother, she, he said, you receive him as
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:37.080
  • your minister and not just your son and things will change. So
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:41.280
  • anyway, Glory to God. I came home from school one day and I
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:48.200
  • said, "Gloria, I read over there where God made Abraham Rich,
  • 00:13:48.210 --> 00:13:55.100
  • rich, rich, rich, rich, rich, rich, rich, rich, rich," And
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:14:02.000
  • then Isaac. Oh, Oh. You read, it said he became wealthy and
  • 00:14:02.010 --> 00:14:09.040
  • wealthier and and very wealthy indeed. And he became so rich,
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:17.090
  • the king got mad at him because, and study this from, from Jewish
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:21.220
  • literature like Komash and so forth. And, and you find out
  • 00:14:21.230 --> 00:14:25.030
  • that that where he lived was, was more palatial than the, than
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:28.280
  • the palace of the king. And he was very jealous of it. Anyway,
  • 00:14:28.290 --> 00:14:33.180
  • I thought, now wait a minute, "the blessing of Abraham through
  • 00:14:33.190 --> 00:14:42.010
  • Jesus, will come on me. Whoa. Yeah. That's what it says. and
  • 00:14:42.020 --> 00:14:52.280
  • Abraham. Um, uh, you know rich, I finally got it out. Rich.
  • 00:14:52.290 --> 00:15:06.210
  • That's a Bible word. It's a big bible word. Both in the old and
  • 00:15:06.220 --> 00:15:11.150
  • the new covenant. The poverty doctrine is not in the Bible.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:15.240
  • Now there are things in there that you can, that you can draw
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:20.290
  • that from it, but not from the entire work. It's not there.
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:27.010
  • It's been built there. Not by people, but by the devil trying
  • 00:15:27.020 --> 00:15:32.220
  • to keep the money out of the hands of the church. Anyway, I'm
  • 00:15:32.230 --> 00:15:39.260
  • telling you, I've got excited about that, I could hardly wait
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:42.030
  • to get home. I got home, and I sat Gloria down there and I read
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:45.120
  • her those scriptures and I said, Gloria, we're rich now this
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:51.000
  • ain't nothing but a matter of time, girl! We just got shouting
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:56.280
  • happy! Gloria said she believed it and we've been believing it
  • 00:15:56.290 --> 00:16:04.040
  • it ever since and he's made us rich. He's made us rich. You
  • 00:16:04.050 --> 00:16:08.150
  • don't like rich preacher preachers, you better get out of
  • 00:16:08.160 --> 00:16:11.200
  • here right now. Amen, glory to God. Hallelujah. There's rich
  • 00:16:11.210 --> 00:16:17.050
  • preachers, all up and down these rows. Glory to God. All that in
  • 00:16:17.060 --> 00:16:21.080
  • there. there ain't no telling. and this one. Oh my goodness.
  • 00:16:21.090 --> 00:16:24.210
  • You mean to tell me you're independently wealthy? No, I'm
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:30.190
  • dependently wealthy. Well now my own personal networth, it ain't
  • 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:40.100
  • all that much. It's good. Don't misunderstand me. In in, in
  • 00:16:40.110 --> 00:16:47.270
  • comparison, yeah. Our home, all the, the land, the Gas wells,
  • 00:16:47.280 --> 00:17:00.080
  • all of that belongs to ministry. Doesn't belong to us personally
  • 00:17:00.090 --> 00:17:05.250
  • and I forget that the world, you know, doesn't know that and they
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:08.220
  • think that I own the whole thing. No, I just work there.
  • 00:17:08.230 --> 00:17:12.210
  • I've got a good job. Gloria and I both do. Amen. It's wonderful.
  • 00:17:12.220 --> 00:17:21.160
  • Hallelujah. We are, we serve a loving God who does not want- I
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:29.060
  • can prove it to you from the book of Deuteronomy where the
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:33.090
  • scripture said, and particularly if you read it in the new living
  • 00:17:33.100 --> 00:17:36.140
  • and the new loving, that's a good title. The new living
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:40.220
  • testament and the amplified, classic amplified testament. God
  • 00:17:40.230 --> 00:17:42.240
  • is referring to his covenant people. He said, "There should
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:48.020
  • be no poor among you." God's provided for everyone to have
  • 00:17:48.030 --> 00:17:52.250
  • far more than enough. Every human being far more than
  • 00:17:52.260 --> 00:17:57.150
  • enough. his lack of knowledge and tradition and makes your
  • 00:17:57.160 --> 00:18:02.250
  • Word of God no effect, manmade doctrines that which is the
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:08.180
  • devil stealing and killing and destroying and wonderful
  • 00:18:08.190 --> 00:18:12.220
  • people. I'm talking about Godly good people
  • 00:18:12.230 --> 00:18:15.250
  • laboring under that, hurting. and course then
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:24.230
  • the devil's going to get them out with us
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.110
  • because they think because of our money, we're going
  • 00:18:26.120 --> 00:18:27.210
  • to hell. I'll tell you what, will send you
  • 00:18:27.220 --> 00:18:32.270
  • to hell. Not Money, but the love of it.
  • 00:18:32.280 --> 00:18:35.240
  • MARK: I'm Mark Otton and this is my wife, Lisa. We got born again
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:17.050
  • back in 1976. LISA: That's when we had come into contact with
  • 00:19:17.060 --> 00:19:20.290
  • some materials from brother Kenneth Copeland that absolutely
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:25.010
  • changed our life. MARK: It's just such revelation and so new
  • 00:19:25.020 --> 00:19:28.290
  • to us. We listened to Kenneth on radio and TV and just any, any
  • 00:19:29.000 --> 00:19:34.010
  • access, any medium, tapes, we wore out tapes a Copeland tape.
  • 00:19:34.020 --> 00:19:38.030
  • Uh, you know, sets of tapes that he would have on different
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:42.130
  • teachings that he would have. LISA: And it could, it was a
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:44.190
  • solid foundation when we stood on the word and believed the
  • 00:19:44.200 --> 00:19:48.010
  • word of God that we heard and taught from them. It worked in
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:51.120
  • our lives. MARK: The pastor of our church that
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:53.190
  • founded our church, he retired and another minister had come in
  • 00:19:53.200 --> 00:19:56.080
  • and he eventually he passed away and, and I was one of the
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:20:01.170
  • elders. And so there was four elders and we, we started taking
  • 00:20:01.180 --> 00:20:04.050
  • the pulpit duties in the pastoral duties and the
  • 00:20:04.060 --> 00:20:07.000
  • different things that need to be taken care of with the church.
  • 00:20:07.010 --> 00:20:09.100
  • And we were interviewing other pastors for, you know, a, a
  • 00:20:09.110 --> 00:20:12.190
  • candidate to replace our pastor that had passed away. And then
  • 00:20:12.200 --> 00:20:15.290
  • that process, Lord said, I'm asking you, mark, to, to step
  • 00:20:16.000 --> 00:20:19.000
  • aside from your business to step... Put, put all that aside,
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:23.090
  • you're career and I want you to go into ministry full time.
  • 00:20:23.100 --> 00:20:26.260
  • LISA: So he came home one day and I did not know he'd been
  • 00:20:26.270 --> 00:20:32.220
  • mulling this over and he walked in the door with confidence and
  • 00:20:32.230 --> 00:20:37.070
  • said, "Hon, it's me. I'm called to do this. This is what God
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:41.250
  • made me to do." And he said, "If you're not with me on this a
  • 00:20:41.260 --> 00:20:46.160
  • hundred percent, I won't do it." And I said, go baby, go. This is
  • 00:20:46.170 --> 00:20:51.060
  • a great adventure. I'm along for the ride. MARK: And so it was at
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:54.110
  • that point that I presented to the other elders, the other
  • 00:20:54.120 --> 00:20:57.140
  • three elders at our church. Then, uh, probably four or five
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:21:01.120
  • months, I was ordained and became the pastor there when I
  • 00:21:01.130 --> 00:21:05.040
  • took over as pastor, we had a, um, over $1 million worth of
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:10.020
  • debt. And, um, you know, the church attendance was down with
  • 00:21:10.030 --> 00:21:13.290
  • the, our former pastor passing away. And that's not having a
  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:16.210
  • pastor for a period of time. And then in 2015, we had a campaign
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:20.080
  • and we paid off the church in 2015. And since then, we've been
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:25.070
  • able to push over $100.000 out every year into the mission
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:28.220
  • field. And God has just given us the grace to be able to just do
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:32.280
  • more. Um, and I think it's because of the, um, the faith of
  • 00:21:32.290 --> 00:21:36.180
  • the people and they're believing God with us. They're trusting
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:40.150
  • God and that we're seeing, uh, things happen. We're seeing the
  • 00:21:40.160 --> 00:21:44.120
  • face more community changed by what God is doing. And it was a
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:47.090
  • process to lay down the business. It was a decision was
  • 00:21:47.100 --> 00:21:50.240
  • because of the cut in and salary. I was going to have to
  • 00:21:50.250 --> 00:21:54.230
  • take a pretty substantial cut in salary to do what we're doing.
  • 00:21:54.240 --> 00:21:57.000
  • But I knew that God had blessed me and my business. I knew God
  • 00:21:57.010 --> 00:22:01.060
  • was my source, not my job. And through that, even though, you
  • 00:22:01.070 --> 00:22:04.260
  • know, we'd always had a dream, you know, home in the country we
  • 00:22:04.270 --> 00:22:07.280
  • wanted to build and we, you know, a kind of our dream home.
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:10.180
  • And so I put all that on the shelf and said, I don't care
  • 00:22:10.190 --> 00:22:14.040
  • about that. I want to pursue you, God. I want your will. I
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:17.040
  • bought a year later, a year and a half later maybe we started
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:20.210
  • building our dream home in the country. LISA: God never makes
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:23.040
  • us to miss anything when we follow his will. He's not a
  • 00:22:23.050 --> 00:22:25.050
  • subtractor. He's always a multiplier. That's another thing
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:29.020
  • we learned from the Copeland's ministry. I believe that and
  • 00:22:29.030 --> 00:22:31.250
  • they proved it to us in a word. MARK: And I think our
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:34.180
  • partnership, even with the Copeland's, uh, being able to
  • 00:22:34.190 --> 00:22:37.100
  • sow into their ministry has been a blessing that we're receiving
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:40.110
  • the, the financial blessings. Because of that there's a grace
  • 00:22:40.120 --> 00:22:42.250
  • on us to do what we do. So whatever God calls us to do, he
  • 00:22:42.260 --> 00:22:47.180
  • gives us the grace to then walk that out. What we're trying to
  • 00:22:47.190 --> 00:22:51.220
  • do at Clear Mountain Community Church too, is make sure that
  • 00:22:51.230 --> 00:22:54.200
  • we're passing legacy onto the next generation. Um, our
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:57.110
  • leaders, but below us, are younger and their, their
  • 00:22:57.120 --> 00:23:01.200
  • generation is grabbing hold of the word. I never imagined the
  • 00:23:01.210 --> 00:23:04.240
  • life that God had for us and what he wants, the way he wanted
  • 00:23:04.250 --> 00:23:08.230
  • to use us to really help transform lives, help teach
  • 00:23:08.240 --> 00:23:12.230
  • others, help lead others to Christ. And uh, it's just been a
  • 00:23:12.240 --> 00:23:15.180
  • real blessing and a real privilege to be able to do that
  • 00:23:15.190 --> 00:23:19.290
  • JEREMY: Every Friday on the believers voice of victory.
  • 00:23:24.090 --> 00:23:26.200
  • Broadcast is offering day and I wanna read this to you again
  • 00:23:26.210 --> 00:23:29.150
  • from the book of Galatians chapter six, verse six. It says,
  • 00:23:29.160 --> 00:23:32.280
  • let him who is taught the word share or respond in all good
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:37.080
  • things with him who teaches and do not be deceived. God is not
  • 00:23:37.090 --> 00:23:40.170
  • mocked for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. If
  • 00:23:40.180 --> 00:23:45.270
  • you've heard word today on this broadcast this week on this
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:49.120
  • broadcast or at any time over the last 30 years that this

  • daily television broadcast has been airing around the world,
  • 00:23:53.000 --> 00:23:56.280
  • then what you do when you hear this and it touches your heart,
  • 00:23:56.290 --> 00:24:00.100
  • you go before the Lord and say, father, how do you want me to
  • 00:24:00.110 --> 00:24:03.110
  • respond to this? And if he's got a part for you to play in the
  • 00:24:03.120 --> 00:24:07.030
  • outreach of this ministry, if he instructs you to come into
  • 00:24:07.040 --> 00:24:10.110
  • agreement in faith, then you do it. If he instructs you to so
  • 00:24:10.120 --> 00:24:13.140
  • financially into the outreach of this ministry, then you do it
  • 00:24:13.150 --> 00:24:16.250
  • because as a partner with this ministry, what you're doing is

  • they preach this uncompromised word of faith from the top of

  • hearts of people all over the world. Partnership is powerful.

  • Amen. Father, we received the giving of the people today. We,
  • 00:24:37.270 --> 00:24:41.230
  • we, we put it before you, Lord Jesus and say, do all that is in
