  • KENNETH: Hello, everybody. I'm Kenneth Copeland.
  • 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:52.070
  • Welcome to the Believers Voice of Victory
  • 00:00:52.080 --> 00:00:54.230
  • broadcast. And have we got a surprise and a broadcast
  • 00:00:54.240 --> 00:00:59.090
  • for you today. Would you join me in welcoming
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:03.120
  • Marilyn Hickey to this studio? MARILYN: Thank you.
  • 00:01:03.130 --> 00:01:06.080
  • Thank you. KENNETH: My, my, my, my. How thrilled I am that
  • 00:01:06.090 --> 00:01:10.050
  • you're here. MARILYN: It's mutual. Mutual. KENNETH: Oh, my.
  • 00:01:10.060 --> 00:01:14.090
  • She sent me three chapters of her new book, which is her
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:21.140
  • autobiography, It Isn't Over Until You Win. And, man, I read
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:27.100
  • it and the first thing I did, I texted. I said, "Where's the
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:30.000
  • rest of it? I've got to have the rest of this." It is dynamic.
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:36.220
  • And I want to say this before we get into it and then... Boldness
  • 00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:49.060
  • is one of the most misunderstood subjects in the New Testament,
  • 00:01:49.070 --> 00:01:54.110
  • and it is of vital importance to everybody, but especially those
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:02:00.030
  • that are called into public ministry. And there's so much of
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:06.100
  • the miraculous depends on boldness. And this is one of the
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:11.110
  • most bold people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. And
  • 00:02:11.120 --> 00:02:17.050
  • I've known some pretty bold people. Oral Roberts, very bold
  • 00:02:17.060 --> 00:02:21.190
  • man. Kenneth Hagin, a very bold man. But I didn't see either one
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:26.120
  • of them preaching healing in Egypt. I've never seen anybody
  • 00:02:26.130 --> 00:02:32.270
  • else preaching healing in Pakistan, huh? Glory to God.
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:38.190
  • Amen. And just go in there and just preach Jesus and it's the
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:43.030
  • healing. Miracles all over the place. And I'm going hush where
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:46.220
  • we can get into this story but I'm so excited about her being
  • 00:02:46.230 --> 00:02:51.180
  • here. KENNETH: This is the life Marilyn Hickey and It's Not Over
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:58.130
  • Until You Win. And the Lord today gave me this scripture,
  • 00:02:58.140 --> 00:03:04.180
  • and this is our golden text. The man that had been a mad man and
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:12.060
  • Jesus instantly delivered him. Thousands of devils. He was
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:19.020
  • possessed by one ruler of the darkness of this world and then
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:23.040
  • the legion of demons operating in and out of him. And he wanted
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:29.200
  • to go with Jesus. Of course, he did. But Jesus said, "Go home to
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:33.150
  • your friends and tell them how great things the Lord hath done
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:39.120
  • for thee and hath had compassion on thee." And, so, my dear
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:47.190
  • Marilyn, let's begin. MARILYN: Yes. KENNETH: This journey, it's
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:54.090
  • not over until you win. MARILYN: And I love that scripture
  • 00:03:54.100 --> 00:04:00.280
  • because that has really been a theme of my life. Because when I
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:05.010
  • wanted to start on television, the people said to me, "You're
  • 00:04:05.020 --> 00:04:09.090
  • not television material. You would never make it." So this is
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:12.110
  • a big station in Denver, but the Lord had told me that I was to
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:19.010
  • go on. And, so, I just sat there and I thought, now God, this is
  • 00:04:19.020 --> 00:04:23.170
  • your problem, not mine. One man, none of these are born again,
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:28.180
  • said, "Well, I think we ought to try her. I think she'll pay her
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:31.180
  • bill." Now, how many years ago was that? They're not in
  • 00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:34.230
  • television, and I'm all over the world. This is what Jesus does.
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:40.040
  • This is what the word does. KENNETH: Yeah, that's what it
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:41.110
  • does. MARILYN: Yes. KENNETH: Amen. MARILYN: Yeah. KENNETH:
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:44.130
  • Well, just start right here in Texas where you were born and
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:46.250
  • take us through this wonderful journey. MARILYN: Well, I was
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:51.120
  • born in Dalhart, Texas, which you know where it is. A little
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:55.290
  • town. KENNETH: I was born in Lubbock so we were just next
  • 00:04:56.000 --> 00:04:58.160
  • door. MARILYN: Well, you were a little larger town than mine.
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:01.080
  • But Dalhart small town. If you had seen my family, we lived in
  • 00:05:01.090 --> 00:05:07.120
  • a little three room house that my father built. And so it-
  • 00:05:07.130 --> 00:05:14.050
  • KENNETH: Let me say this Marilyn before we get started. Marilyn,
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:19.150
  • I was born closer to the end of the Depression. I was born in
  • 00:05:19.160 --> 00:05:23.010
  • 1936, she was born in 1930. MARILYN: One. KENNETH: In 1931,
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:28.010
  • which was the beginning of the Depression, so they went through
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:31.080
  • the heart of the Great Depression. And particularly in
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:35.160
  • that part of the world, what a lot of people don't know, and
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:39.280
  • this has a big to do with all of this, that not only was the
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:45.000
  • Depression on, it didn't rain. It did not rain in that part of
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:50.120
  • the world for nearly 10 years and it created the Great Dust
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:54.030
  • Bowl. I remember it as a young boy, and it was terrible. It was
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:06:01.250
  • absolutely horrible. People died in those dusts storms. Cattle
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:05.060
  • suffocated in it. So I just wanted to tell you that to give
  • 00:06:05.070 --> 00:06:09.180
  • you a perspective about when Marilyn was born and the kind of
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:14.130
  • atmosphere in which she entered into the world. MARILYN: Well, I
  • 00:06:14.140 --> 00:06:19.220
  • think being born in Texas is wonderful. I am glad I can say I
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:24.260
  • am a Texan. I think you are too. KENNETH: Yes, amen. MARILYN: We
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:28.080
  • like Texas. KENNETH: Yes, ma'am. MARILYN: But I look at the
  • 00:06:28.090 --> 00:06:30.140
  • process of God. And I want to say this, it seemed like as a
  • 00:06:30.150 --> 00:06:36.120
  • little girl, I had a hunger for God. I didn't know why. And so
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:41.180
  • we lived in a little town and so then... And we had moved to
  • 00:06:41.190 --> 00:06:47.130
  • Pennsylvania when I was 11. And I said, "Lord, I want to be
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:52.000
  • where you are. Are you in the Catholic church? Are you in the
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:55.250
  • Methodist church? Where are you? I want to be where you are." And
  • 00:06:55.260 --> 00:07:00.260
  • he said, "I'm in the word." KENNETH: Oh, praise God.
  • 00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:05.050
  • MARILYN: And Kenneth, that has directed my whole life. And so I
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:08.170
  • began to read the Bible. In those early years, I really had
  • 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:14.130
  • a hunger for the word. But when I was 16, I got the author of my
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:19.090
  • heart, i got born again. So my family didn't quite know what to
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:23.240
  • do with me, we were in a liberal Methodist church, because I
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:27.120
  • wanted to read the Bible, I wanted it to go to church. And
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:31.140
  • my family were kind of, what's so strange about you? And, so,
  • 00:07:31.150 --> 00:07:35.210
  • that was my early beginning of God drawing me. And I believe he
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:41.140
  • draws everyone. It says, "The grace of God that brings
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:45.010
  • salvation has appeared to all men." I don't know how he's
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:48.140
  • going to do it, i just know how he did it with me. And I began
  • 00:07:48.150 --> 00:07:52.120
  • to read the Bible in that time and that began to change my
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:56.280
  • life. MARILYN: So in this timing I'm reading the Bible, my family
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:08:03.280
  • are going to a pretty liberal church. And then my mother got a
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:08.030
  • tumor in her breast and they were very concerned about it.
  • 00:08:08.040 --> 00:08:12.230
  • And she watched Oral Roberts on television and I told her,
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:16.220
  • "Don't do it. He's flaky." She did it anyway. And he told them,
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:23.280
  • "Touch the television set and you'll be healed," and the tumor
  • 00:08:23.290 --> 00:08:28.000
  • disappeared. KENNETH: Oh, glory to God. MARILYN: And I want to
  • 00:08:28.010 --> 00:08:32.070
  • say this, I think if we can see the process of God, you will
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:36.200
  • never get discouraged because you'll see how God did this, he
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:40.270
  • did that, he brought that person, he allowed certain
  • 00:08:40.280 --> 00:08:43.250
  • things. And so that really was a big deal. Now, I didn't think it
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:49.090
  • was right, but what could I say? The tumor disappeared. Then he
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:55.290
  • came to town and had a meeting and she went. And I told her,
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:09:02.040
  • "Don't go. Don't go there. That's flaky." Isn't this
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:05.290
  • hilarious knowing in my history now with Oral Roberts? So she
  • 00:09:06.000 --> 00:09:12.040
  • went and she had a friend, excuse me, who had warts all
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:18.260
  • over her hand, and they're just sitting in the meeting and the
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:22.180
  • warts disappeared. KENNETH: Oh, glory to God. MARILYN: So see, I
  • 00:09:22.190 --> 00:09:26.010
  • began to see the word is miraculous. It works where you
  • 00:09:26.020 --> 00:09:31.220
  • live. And that's what I love about it so much. It works every
  • 00:09:31.230 --> 00:09:35.290
  • day where you live. So I think- KENNETH: Now, this would have
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:39.150
  • been in a '50s? MARILYN: This would have been... Yeah, this
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:42.280
  • would have been in the early... No, maybe '48 or 9, someplace in
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:47.280
  • there. KENNETH: About the beginning of his ministry.
  • 00:09:47.290 --> 00:09:49.200
  • MARILYN: Yeah. Yeah. So she would watch him all the time. I
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:53.250
  • didn't, but I loved the Bible. So I'm reading the Bible, and
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:10:01.130
  • I'm underlining my Bible. It's just really messy. And somebody
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:05.150
  • said, "Don't you realize the Bible is holy?" I said, "the
  • 00:10:05.160 --> 00:10:08.190
  • paper isn't." So what happened is the Bible began to read me.
  • 00:10:08.200 --> 00:10:17.060
  • And I love this, that he says, "God." Psalm 51 says, "God, thou
  • 00:10:17.070 --> 00:10:23.110
  • desire truth in the inward man and in the hidden man, you will
  • 00:10:23.120 --> 00:10:28.120
  • make me to know wisdom." So I always tell people, "Hold up
  • 00:10:28.130 --> 00:10:31.090
  • your Bible, your phone, if that's where your Bible is,
  • 00:10:31.100 --> 00:10:34.080
  • because God wants this to be in here. He wants truth in here."
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:39.010
  • MARILYN: Now, here's the wonderful part. Then he takes
  • 00:10:39.020 --> 00:10:42.040
  • the truth in here, and it says it, and makes it wisdom up here.
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:46.190
  • So what you are putting in here, God is preparing to be used up
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:51.200
  • here. So little truth, a little wisdom. A lot of truth, a lot of
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:56.130
  • wisdom. Don't you agree? KENNETH: Oh, absolutely.
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:10:59.270
  • MARILYN: Yeah. Of course, I'm turned on to God, but I don't
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:05.110
  • really know that much. My mother's watching Oral Roberts
  • 00:11:05.120 --> 00:11:08.220
  • and I think he's flaky. She's having people who are friends
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:13.250
  • that are getting real turned onto God and getting spirit
  • 00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:16.220
  • filled. So my father had a total mental breakdown, was put in a
  • 00:11:16.230 --> 00:11:24.180
  • mental hospital and they said he will never come out. But by this
  • 00:11:24.190 --> 00:11:30.070
  • time my mother is in the word and out of her desperation, she
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:35.120
  • has gotten spirit filled. So I remember going with her to the
  • 00:11:35.130 --> 00:11:39.180
  • psychologist and he said, "He'll never come out." And she said,
  • 00:11:39.190 --> 00:11:43.110
  • "He'll be out of here in a year." And he was. KENNETH:
  • 00:11:43.120 --> 00:11:46.120
  • Praise God. She got what she said. MARILYN: He was. He got
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:49.090
  • born again and water baptized. So see if we can watch the
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:51.240
  • process of God in our lives and not just jump from here to
  • 00:11:51.250 --> 00:11:57.070
  • there, it's a process, isn't it? And we're in a continual process
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:12:02.220
  • of faith. We go from faith to faith. We go from strength to
  • 00:12:02.230 --> 00:12:07.090
  • strength, from glory to glory. KENNETH: Well, if you don't, you
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:10.180
  • can't just stay in one spot. MARILYN: No. KENNETH: And, if
  • 00:12:10.190 --> 00:12:14.260
  • you don't, you begin to slide. MARILYN: Right. KENNETH: But, if
  • 00:12:14.270 --> 00:12:17.010
  • you just stay in the word, and the continual growth of faith
  • 00:12:17.020 --> 00:12:21.050
  • begins to change things. MARILYN: Right. It does. And
  • 00:12:21.060 --> 00:12:25.110
  • then we got to hear Kenneth Hagin. So he came to a little
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:33.150
  • Foursquare church in our city. We haven't been married very
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:36.290
  • long and- KENNETH: Now, where were, you now? What city.
  • 00:12:37.000 --> 00:12:39.150
  • MARILYN: We were in Denver. KENNETH: You were in Denver.
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:40.250
  • MARILYN: I was married by that time. And so we got to go in
  • 00:12:40.260 --> 00:12:43.210
  • hear him and I couldn't believe it. I thought if the word will
  • 00:12:43.220 --> 00:12:49.110
  • work like that for him, it will work that way for me. So that
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:53.240
  • was really more of, what can I say, the process. The beginning
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:12:58.140
  • of it. And then, of course, I used to listen to you, to
  • 00:12:58.150 --> 00:13:03.180
  • Charles Capps and Jerry Savelle, all these various people. And
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:07.100
  • those were all part of the process. But I never thought I
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:13.070
  • would be in the ministry. I'm a school teacher. I teach Spanish
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:18.080
  • and French and Latin and English. MARILYN: And so about
  • 00:13:18.090 --> 00:13:23.060
  • three years after we were married, my husband comes home
  • 00:13:23.070 --> 00:13:28.170
  • and he's discouraged and he's crying. "What are you crying
  • 00:13:28.180 --> 00:13:32.230
  • about?" "Well, I feel like we're failing God." "How can we be
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:36.120
  • failing God? We go to church all the time. We teach Sunday
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:40.030
  • school, we sing in the choir. We're not failing God." "Well,"
  • 00:13:40.040 --> 00:13:43.210
  • he said, "I feel like I am." So he began to fast and pray. And
  • 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:48.160
  • our pastor said to us one night, "God told me today that he's
  • 00:13:48.170 --> 00:13:55.280
  • called Wally and Marilyn into the ministry." And that really
  • 00:13:55.290 --> 00:14:01.150
  • resonated with my husband. But now in the meantime we've
  • 00:14:01.160 --> 00:14:07.110
  • watched Oral Roberts, we've gone to Voice of Healing. We've seen
  • 00:14:07.120 --> 00:14:12.190
  • William Branam, we've seen miracle ministries so we're not
  • 00:14:12.200 --> 00:14:17.070
  • going to be happy without signs. We're just not going to be
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:21.220
  • there. And absolutely, the word brings manifestation. MARILYN:
  • 00:14:21.230 --> 00:14:26.190
  • So when the pastor said that I had an aunt in Dalhart, Texas,
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:34.180
  • she went to a little Assembly of God church. She said, "I'm going
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:37.260
  • to tell my pastor you'll come and you'll hold a revival
  • 00:14:37.270 --> 00:14:41.110
  • meeting." We're about as prepared as a mouse. And so the
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:44.150
  • pastor invited us. So Wally would fast and pray in the day
  • 00:14:44.160 --> 00:14:51.130
  • time. And I thought, these people haven't had anybody saved
  • 00:14:51.140 --> 00:14:56.030
  • for several years. So I would go door to door and take women with
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:15:01.280
  • me. And so we had people get saved because we went and got
  • 00:15:01.290 --> 00:15:05.190
  • them. KENNETH: Yeah, amen. Thank God, Marilyn. MARILYN: That's
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:08.080
  • been a big thing for me to go and get them. And so we had
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:12.120
  • people- KENNETH: So that began really with you way back there
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:15.120
  • way back then? MARILYN: Way back than, Yeah. KENNETH: Isn't that
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:17.180
  • marvelous? MARILYN: Then we became assistant pastors in
  • 00:15:17.190 --> 00:15:21.260
  • Amarillo, Texas. ER Foster invited us, and that was a huge
  • 00:15:21.270 --> 00:15:25.290
  • church at that time. There was 500 people. They Had two
  • 00:15:26.000 --> 00:15:29.250
  • assistant pastors. Oh this is just slap happy for Wally, he's
  • 00:15:29.260 --> 00:15:34.130
  • leading worship. And so they said, "We have a young married
  • 00:15:34.140 --> 00:15:38.030
  • class." Now, see, I'm pretty young. I'm like 26 or 27. They
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:43.020
  • said, "Would you be interested in teaching it?" I thought, I'm
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:47.030
  • young married, but in Texas when they burp them, I think they get
  • 00:15:47.040 --> 00:15:52.030
  • married. They married so young. And so I went and took the
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:59.140
  • class. And then, MARILYN: Kenneth, I began to see how the
  • 00:15:59.150 --> 00:16:03.200
  • word would work. So the class grew to about a hundred people
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:07.280
  • in a few months. And what I did is I went after people through
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:12.260
  • the electric company because every new family that moved into
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:18.060
  • Amarillo had to sign up and they gave me the names. And so I
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:23.250
  • called every name and I had women who helped me and so our
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:28.250
  • class grew. You say, "How did you get them?" We went after
  • 00:16:28.260 --> 00:16:32.190
  • them. And that's always been the process with me with God, go
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:38.050
  • after them. They're not going to sit and come to, you have to go
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:42.170
  • after them. MARILYN: So then we were there two and a half years
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:48.150
  • and Wally felt like we should go back into evangelism. So we went
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:52.020
  • back to Denver and we had neighbors that we had led to
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:57.160
  • Christ and they said, "We just lost our pastor," this little
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:17:01.170
  • church. "Would you help us out until we get somebody?" That's
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:06.100
  • 65 years ago, the longevity of God. If you had told me then, I
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:14.040
  • had a thought you were totally crazy. And so we took that
  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:18.050
  • church. And ,again, how do you get people? I mean, who wants to
  • 00:17:18.060 --> 00:17:23.110
  • come and here Wally and Marilyn Hickey? What do they know? They
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:26.230
  • haven't been to Bible school. Come on. What do they know? And
  • 00:17:26.240 --> 00:17:30.090
  • in your own town, they don't want to come and hear you. So we
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:34.030
  • went after people. MARILYN: And what I did, and to this day, I
  • 00:17:34.040 --> 00:17:40.010
  • love to do this, I started a home Bible study and I had seven
  • 00:17:40.020 --> 00:17:45.080
  • women. And over a cup of coffee and a cookie, we studied the
  • 00:17:45.090 --> 00:17:50.140
  • Bible and they began to get saved and spirit filled. And
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:55.190
  • pretty soon I had a hundred, over a hundred Bible studies.
  • 00:17:55.200 --> 00:18:00.120
  • No, I had 22, that's an exaggeration. It grew to a
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:03.020
  • hundred. I had 22 home Bible studies and they said, "You
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:06.040
  • don't have anything for men." So we started a couple study at
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:10.020
  • night. MARILYN: Now, you say, "Well, that doesn't sound very
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:12.210
  • exciting." But those people said to me, "You ought to go on the
  • 00:18:12.220 --> 00:18:17.060
  • radio." "Well, I don't have the money for the radio." "Well, how
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:21.140
  • much does it cost?" "Five dollars a day. Five days, that's
  • 00:18:21.150 --> 00:18:24.230
  • $25 a month." I went to my husband and he said, "Well, they
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:30.210
  • like you so well, let them pay for it." Best thing he could
  • 00:18:30.220 --> 00:18:34.080
  • have ever said. So I went back to them and they paid for it.
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:39.130
  • And so pretty soon the Bible studies began to grow and I had
  • 00:18:39.140 --> 00:18:45.190
  • a group of people who took me and sponsored me. And I'm on all
  • 00:18:45.200 --> 00:18:50.160
  • these radio stations and I'm hearing you, I'm hearing Kenneth
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:56.130
  • Hagin. I know that faith works. This is so powerful, this faith
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:19:02.230
  • works. MARILYN: So after I got very involved in the radio, then
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:08.110
  • I began to go out to TBN as a TBN teacher and teach once a
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:14.030
  • week. I didn't go every week, I went every three weeks and than
  • 00:19:14.040 --> 00:19:19.110
  • taped them. And then they said to me, "You know, we're getting
  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:23.230
  • so much mail for you. Why don't you go on daily?" Isn't God
  • 00:19:23.240 --> 00:19:28.150
  • cool? Think about the man who said you'll never make it. And
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:33.170
  • you need to think about the people who say negative things.
  • 00:19:33.180 --> 00:19:36.230
  • MARILYN: I had a man say to me when I was early in pastoring,
  • 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:39.250
  • he said, "Of all the pastor's wives I know, you're the biggest
  • 00:19:39.260 --> 00:19:42.240
  • example of a failure." I said, "Well, why do you think that?"
  • 00:19:42.250 --> 00:19:46.000
  • He said, "Because you don't play the piano. You don't play the
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:49.020
  • organ. You don't lead the worship. You don't lead the
  • 00:19:49.030 --> 00:19:51.250
  • women's missionary council. All you do have those silly little
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:55.070
  • home Bible studies." KENNETH: Oh, my gracious sake. MARILYN:
  • 00:19:55.080 --> 00:19:58.140
  • Process. And I like to tell people this, I really like too,
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:20:04.080
  • because everybody thinks you start up here, you don't.
  • 00:20:04.090 --> 00:20:06.230
  • KENNETH: No, no, no, never. MARILYN: You start being
  • 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:10.040
  • faithful and saying what the word says and people telling
  • 00:20:10.050 --> 00:20:14.220
  • you, "You don't speak well, why don't you sit down." All of
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:19.220
  • these things, and holding onto what he says in it. So, Kenneth,
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:26.080
  • I got nervous about this because I thought, people said to me,
  • 00:20:26.090 --> 00:20:32.200
  • "You're a woman, you shouldn't speak." And yet I felt God had
  • 00:20:32.210 --> 00:20:37.250
  • called me. So I said to the Lord, "You know, I'm a woman."
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:44.070
  • And God said, "Yes, I know." I don't think he was shocked. So I
  • 00:20:44.080 --> 00:20:55.260
  • said, "I don't understand where I am in the body." You have to
  • 00:20:55.270 --> 00:20:59.270
  • remember this is way back. KENNETH: Oh, yeah. MARILYN: I
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:01.220
  • mean, when women certainly didn't speak. And the Lord said
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:05.100
  • to me, "You are a bridge." And he said, "You won't just speak
  • 00:21:05.110 --> 00:21:11.070
  • to men and women, you will speak to nations." KENNETH: Praise
  • 00:21:11.080 --> 00:21:13.290
  • God, Marilyn. And you've done it. MARILYN: So you find out
  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:17.120
  • you're a bridge. I think you have seen yourself as a bridge,
  • 00:21:17.130 --> 00:21:21.100
  • haven't you? KENNETH: Yes. MARILYN: You have been a great
  • 00:21:21.110 --> 00:21:23.290
  • bridge for the world. I mean, I go in all... I've been in 136
  • 00:21:24.000 --> 00:21:29.100
  • nations. They know you, they love you. They really, really
  • 00:21:29.110 --> 00:21:36.160
  • do. KENNETH: Glory to God. MARILYN: If you say your name,
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:39.160
  • they turn on. They really do. And I've put my hand on my
  • 00:21:39.170 --> 00:21:44.080
  • heart, put my hand on the Bible. That is the truth. So I just
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:48.120
  • started that way. And Wally, God bless Wally, he was so behind
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:54.080
  • me. He would always say, "You are really good," because he'd
  • 00:21:54.090 --> 00:22:01.160
  • have me preach every other Sunday and I'd feel so inferior.
  • 00:22:01.170 --> 00:22:06.020
  • "No, no, you're really good." And I was so shy, i would leave
  • 00:22:06.030 --> 00:22:10.200
  • the service early, go out and sit in the car and roll up the
  • 00:22:10.210 --> 00:22:14.200
  • windows so I wouldn't have to say hello to anybody. MARILYN:
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:18.000
  • Yeah. And, again, it's very important that we stay in the
  • 00:22:18.010 --> 00:22:24.160
  • process. So I fed myself the word. I fed myself on different
  • 00:22:24.170 --> 00:22:31.130
  • teachings of faith. And then I said to God when I was 45, "What
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:40.160
  • do you want me to do? I don't know what my call is. My husband
  • 00:22:40.170 --> 00:22:44.220
  • is a pastor. He knows I don't know what I am. Am I called? Am
  • 00:22:44.230 --> 00:22:48.200
  • I just with Wally? What do I do?" And that's when I went...
  • 00:22:48.210 --> 00:22:53.160
  • And I only fasted two days. I fasted and prayed and God said,
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:59.030
  • "I've called you to cover the earth with the word." KENNETH:
  • 00:22:59.040 --> 00:23:01.260
  • Oh, praise God, Marilyn. My, my, my. MARILYN: So how do
  • 00:23:01.270 --> 00:23:04.070
  • you do that? KENNETH: We're out of time already.
  • 00:23:04.080 --> 00:23:10.230
  • We'll be back. Amen. We'll be back in just a moment.
  • 00:23:10.240 --> 00:23:16.170
  • JEREMY: Right now you and I are in this continual process
  • 00:23:21.110 --> 00:23:24.050
  • of faith. And like Marilyn Hickey said, it's important
  • 00:23:24.060 --> 00:23:26.200
  • that we stay in that process. And this is a
  • 00:23:26.210 --> 00:23:29.170
  • big key to walking in the victory in the area that God's
  • 00:23:29.180 --> 00:23:33.000
  • called you to. Never give up, that's the answer right there.
  • 00:23:33.010 --> 00:23:36.050
  • God has a plan for your life and he will provide for you every
  • 00:23:36.060 --> 00:23:40.130
  • single step of the way. Now, your part in it is to stay
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:44.060
  • hungry, stay hungry for him. Stay in the word of God. Amen?
  • 00:23:44.070 --> 00:23:49.080
  • Now, Marilyn Hickey is releasing a new book called,
  • 00:23:49.090 --> 00:23:52.080
  • It's Not Over Until You Win. In this autobiography she shares
  • 00:23:52.090 --> 00:23:56.250
