  • KENNETH: Hello, everybody. I'm Kenneth Copeland.
  • 00:00:50.190 --> 00:00:52.260
  • Welcome to the Believers Voice of Victory
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:55.120
  • broadcast. And have we got a surprise and a broadcast
  • 00:00:55.130 --> 00:00:59.280
  • for you today. Would you join me in welcoming
  • 00:00:59.290 --> 00:01:04.010
  • Marilyn Hickey to this studio? MARILYN: Thank you.
  • 00:01:04.020 --> 00:01:06.270
  • Thank you. KENNETH: My, my, my, my. How thrilled I am that
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:10.240
  • you're here. MARILYN: It's mutual. Mutual. KENNETH: Oh, my.
  • 00:01:10.250 --> 00:01:14.280
  • She sent me three chapters of her new book, which is her
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:22.030
  • autobiography, It Isn't Over Until You Win. And, man, I read
  • 00:01:22.040 --> 00:01:27.290
  • it and the first thing I did, I texted. I said, "Where's the
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:30.190
  • rest of it? I've got to have the rest of this." It is dynamic.
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:37.110
  • And I want to say this before we get into it and then... Boldness
  • 00:01:37.120 --> 00:01:49.250
  • is one of the most misunderstood subjects in the New Testament,
  • 00:01:49.260 --> 00:01:55.000
  • and it is of vital importance to everybody, but especially those
  • 00:01:55.010 --> 00:02:00.220
  • that are called into public ministry. And there's so much of
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:06.290
  • the miraculous depends on boldness. And this is one of the
  • 00:02:07.000 --> 00:02:12.000
  • most bold people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. And
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:17.240
  • I've known some pretty bold people. Oral Roberts, very bold
  • 00:02:17.250 --> 00:02:22.080
  • man. Kenneth Hagin, a very bold man. But I didn't see either one
  • 00:02:22.090 --> 00:02:27.010
  • of them preaching healing in Egypt. I've never seen anybody
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:33.160
  • else preaching healing in Pakistan, huh? Glory to God.
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:39.080
  • Amen. And just go in there and just preach Jesus and it's the
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:43.220
  • healing. Miracles all over the place. And I'm going hush where
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:47.110
  • we can get into this story but I'm so excited about her being
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:52.070
  • here. KENNETH: This is the life Marilyn Hickey and It's Not Over
  • 00:02:52.080 --> 00:02:59.020
  • Until You Win. And the Lord today gave me this scripture,
  • 00:02:59.030 --> 00:03:05.070
  • and this is our golden text. The man that had been a mad man and
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:12.250
  • Jesus instantly delivered him. Thousands of devils. He was
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:19.210
  • possessed by one ruler of the darkness of this world and then
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:23.230
  • the legion of demons operating in and out of him. And he wanted
  • 00:03:23.240 --> 00:03:30.090
  • to go with Jesus. Of course, he did. But Jesus said, "Go home to
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:34.040
  • your friends and tell them how great things the Lord hath done
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:40.010
  • for thee and hath had compassion on thee." And, so, my dear
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:48.080
  • Marilyn, let's begin. MARILYN: Yes. KENNETH: This journey, it's
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:54.280
  • not over until you win. MARILYN: And I love that scripture
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:04:01.170
  • because that has really been a theme of my life. Because when I
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:05.200
  • wanted to start on television, the people said to me, "You're
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:09.280
  • not television material. You would never make it." So this is
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:13.000
  • a big station in Denver, but the Lord had told me that I was to
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:19.200
  • go on. And, so, I just sat there and I thought, now God, this is
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:24.060
  • your problem, not mine. One man, none of these are born again,
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:29.070
  • said, "Well, I think we ought to try her. I think she'll pay her
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:32.070
  • bill." Now, how many years ago was that? They're not in
  • 00:04:32.080 --> 00:04:35.120
  • television, and I'm all over the world. This is what Jesus does.
  • 00:04:35.130 --> 00:04:40.230
  • This is what the word does. KENNETH: Yeah, that's what it
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:42.000
  • does. MARILYN: Yes. KENNETH: Amen. MARILYN: Yeah. KENNETH:
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:45.020
  • Well, just start right here in Texas where you were born and
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:47.140
  • take us through this wonderful journey. MARILYN: Well, I was
  • 00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:52.010
  • born in Dalhart, Texas, which you know where it is. A little
  • 00:04:52.020 --> 00:04:56.180
  • town. KENNETH: I was born in Lubbock so we were just next
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:59.050
  • door. MARILYN: Well, you were a little larger town than mine.
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:01.270
  • But Dalhart small town. If you had seen my family, we lived in
  • 00:05:01.280 --> 00:05:08.010
  • a little three room house that my father built. And so it-
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:14.240
  • KENNETH: Let me say this Marilyn before we get started. Marilyn,
  • 00:05:14.250 --> 00:05:20.040
  • I was born closer to the end of the Depression. I was born in
  • 00:05:20.050 --> 00:05:23.200
  • 1936, she was born in 1930. MARILYN: One. KENNETH: In 1931,
  • 00:05:23.210 --> 00:05:28.200
  • which was the beginning of the Depression, so they went through
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:31.270
  • the heart of the Great Depression. And particularly in
  • 00:05:31.280 --> 00:05:36.050
  • that part of the world, what a lot of people don't know, and
  • 00:05:36.060 --> 00:05:40.170
  • this has a big to do with all of this, that not only was the
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:45.190
  • Depression on, it didn't rain. It did not rain in that part of
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:51.010
  • the world for nearly 10 years and it created the Great Dust
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:54.220
  • Bowl. I remember it as a young boy, and it was terrible. It was
  • 00:05:54.230 --> 00:06:02.140
  • absolutely horrible. People died in those dusts storms. Cattle
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:05.250
  • suffocated in it. So I just wanted to tell you that to give
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:10.070
  • you a perspective about when Marilyn was born and the kind of
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:15.020
  • atmosphere in which she entered into the world. MARILYN: Well, I
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:20.110
  • think being born in Texas is wonderful. I am glad I can say I
  • 00:06:20.120 --> 00:06:25.150
  • am a Texan. I think you are too. KENNETH: Yes, amen. MARILYN: We
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:28.270
  • like Texas. KENNETH: Yes, ma'am. MARILYN: But I look at the
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:31.030
  • process of God. And I want to say this, it seemed like as a
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:37.010
  • little girl, I had a hunger for God. I didn't know why. And so
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:42.070
  • we lived in a little town and so then... And we had moved to
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:48.020
  • Pennsylvania when I was 11. And I said, "Lord, I want to be
  • 00:06:48.030 --> 00:06:52.190
  • where you are. Are you in the Catholic church? Are you in the
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:56.140
  • Methodist church? Where are you? I want to be where you are." And
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:07:01.150
  • he said, "I'm in the word." KENNETH: Oh, praise God.
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:05.240
  • MARILYN: And Kenneth, that has directed my whole life. And so I
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:09.060
  • began to read the Bible. In those early years, I really had
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:15.020
  • a hunger for the word. But when I was 16, I got the author of my
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:19.280
  • heart, i got born again. So my family didn't quite know what to
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:24.130
  • do with me, we were in a liberal Methodist church, because I
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:28.010
  • wanted to read the Bible, I wanted it to go to church. And
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:32.030
  • my family were kind of, what's so strange about you? And, so,
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:36.100
  • that was my early beginning of God drawing me. And I believe he
  • 00:07:36.110 --> 00:07:42.030
  • draws everyone. It says, "The grace of God that brings
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:45.200
  • salvation has appeared to all men." I don't know how he's
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:49.030
  • going to do it, i just know how he did it with me. And I began
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:53.010
  • to read the Bible in that time and that began to change my
  • 00:07:53.020 --> 00:07:57.170
  • life. MARILYN: So in this timing I'm reading the Bible, my family
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:08:04.170
  • are going to a pretty liberal church. And then my mother got a
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:08.220
  • tumor in her breast and they were very concerned about it.
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:13.120
  • And she watched Oral Roberts on television and I told her,
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:17.110
  • "Don't do it. He's flaky." She did it anyway. And he told them,
  • 00:08:17.120 --> 00:08:24.170
  • "Touch the television set and you'll be healed," and the tumor
  • 00:08:24.180 --> 00:08:28.190
  • disappeared. KENNETH: Oh, glory to God. MARILYN: And I want to
  • 00:08:28.200 --> 00:08:32.260
  • say this, I think if we can see the process of God, you will
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:37.090
  • never get discouraged because you'll see how God did this, he
  • 00:08:37.100 --> 00:08:41.160
  • did that, he brought that person, he allowed certain
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:44.140
  • things. And so that really was a big deal. Now, I didn't think it
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:49.280
  • was right, but what could I say? The tumor disappeared. Then he
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:56.180
  • came to town and had a meeting and she went. And I told her,
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:09:02.230
  • "Don't go. Don't go there. That's flaky." Isn't this
  • 00:09:02.240 --> 00:09:06.180
  • hilarious knowing in my history now with Oral Roberts? So she
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:12.230
  • went and she had a friend, excuse me, who had warts all
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:19.150
  • over her hand, and they're just sitting in the meeting and the
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:23.070
  • warts disappeared. KENNETH: Oh, glory to God. MARILYN: So see, I
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:26.200
  • began to see the word is miraculous. It works where you
  • 00:09:26.210 --> 00:09:32.110
  • live. And that's what I love about it so much. It works every
  • 00:09:32.120 --> 00:09:36.180
  • day where you live. So I think- KENNETH: Now, this would have
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:40.040
  • been in a '50s? MARILYN: This would have been... Yeah, this
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:43.170
  • would have been in the early... No, maybe '48 or 9, someplace in
  • 00:09:43.180 --> 00:09:48.170
  • there. KENNETH: About the beginning of his ministry.
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:50.090
  • MARILYN: Yeah. Yeah. So she would watch him all the time. I
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:54.140
  • didn't, but I loved the Bible. So I'm reading the Bible, and
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:10:02.020
  • I'm underlining my Bible. It's just really messy. And somebody
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:06.040
  • said, "Don't you realize the Bible is holy?" I said, "the
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:09.080
  • paper isn't." So what happened is the Bible began to read me.
  • 00:10:09.090 --> 00:10:17.250
  • And I love this, that he says, "God." Psalm 51 says, "God, thou
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:24.000
  • desire truth in the inward man and in the hidden man, you will
  • 00:10:24.010 --> 00:10:29.010
  • make me to know wisdom." So I always tell people, "Hold up
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:31.280
  • your Bible, your phone, if that's where your Bible is,
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:34.270
  • because God wants this to be in here. He wants truth in here."
  • 00:10:34.280 --> 00:10:39.200
  • MARILYN: Now, here's the wonderful part. Then he takes
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:42.230
  • the truth in here, and it says it, and makes it wisdom up here.
  • 00:10:42.240 --> 00:10:47.080
  • So what you are putting in here, God is preparing to be used up
  • 00:10:47.090 --> 00:10:52.090
  • here. So little truth, a little wisdom. A lot of truth, a lot of
  • 00:10:52.100 --> 00:10:57.020
  • wisdom. Don't you agree? KENNETH: Oh, absolutely.
  • 00:10:57.030 --> 00:11:00.180
  • MARILYN: Yeah. Of course, I'm turned on to God, but I don't
  • 00:11:00.190 --> 00:11:06.000
  • really know that much. My mother's watching Oral Roberts
  • 00:11:06.010 --> 00:11:09.110
  • and I think he's flaky. She's having people who are friends
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:14.140
  • that are getting real turned onto God and getting spirit
  • 00:11:14.150 --> 00:11:17.110
  • filled. So my father had a total mental breakdown, was put in a
  • 00:11:17.120 --> 00:11:25.070
  • mental hospital and they said he will never come out. But by this
  • 00:11:25.080 --> 00:11:30.260
  • time my mother is in the word and out of her desperation, she
  • 00:11:30.270 --> 00:11:36.010
  • has gotten spirit filled. So I remember going with her to the
  • 00:11:36.020 --> 00:11:40.070
  • psychologist and he said, "He'll never come out." And she said,
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:44.000
  • "He'll be out of here in a year." And he was. KENNETH:
  • 00:11:44.010 --> 00:11:47.010
  • Praise God. She got what she said. MARILYN: He was. He got
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:49.280
  • born again and water baptized. So see if we can watch the
  • 00:11:49.290 --> 00:11:52.130
  • process of God in our lives and not just jump from here to
  • 00:11:52.140 --> 00:11:57.260
  • there, it's a process, isn't it? And we're in a continual process
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:12:03.110
  • of faith. We go from faith to faith. We go from strength to
  • 00:12:03.120 --> 00:12:07.280
  • strength, from glory to glory. KENNETH: Well, if you don't, you
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:11.070
  • can't just stay in one spot. MARILYN: No. KENNETH: And, if
  • 00:12:11.080 --> 00:12:15.150
  • you don't, you begin to slide. MARILYN: Right. KENNETH: But, if
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:17.200
  • you just stay in the word, and the continual growth of faith
  • 00:12:17.210 --> 00:12:21.240
  • begins to change things. MARILYN: Right. It does. And
  • 00:12:21.250 --> 00:12:26.000
  • then we got to hear Kenneth Hagin. So he came to a little
  • 00:12:26.010 --> 00:12:34.040
  • Foursquare church in our city. We haven't been married very
  • 00:12:34.050 --> 00:12:37.180
  • long and- KENNETH: Now, where were, you now? What city.
  • 00:12:37.190 --> 00:12:40.040
  • MARILYN: We were in Denver. KENNETH: You were in Denver.
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.140
  • MARILYN: I was married by that time. And so we got to go in
  • 00:12:41.150 --> 00:12:44.100
  • hear him and I couldn't believe it. I thought if the word will
  • 00:12:44.110 --> 00:12:50.000
  • work like that for him, it will work that way for me. So that
  • 00:12:50.010 --> 00:12:54.130
  • was really more of, what can I say, the process. The beginning
  • 00:12:54.140 --> 00:12:59.030
  • of it. And then, of course, I used to listen to you, to
  • 00:12:59.040 --> 00:13:04.070
  • Charles Capps and Jerry Savelle, all these various people. And
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:07.290
  • those were all part of the process. But I never thought I
  • 00:13:08.000 --> 00:13:13.260
  • would be in the ministry. I'm a school teacher. I teach Spanish
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:18.270
  • and French and Latin and English. MARILYN: And so about
  • 00:13:18.280 --> 00:13:23.250
  • three years after we were married, my husband comes home
  • 00:13:23.260 --> 00:13:29.060
  • and he's discouraged and he's crying. "What are you crying
  • 00:13:29.070 --> 00:13:33.120
  • about?" "Well, I feel like we're failing God." "How can we be
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:37.010
  • failing God? We go to church all the time. We teach Sunday
  • 00:13:37.020 --> 00:13:40.220
  • school, we sing in the choir. We're not failing God." "Well,"
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:44.100
  • he said, "I feel like I am." So he began to fast and pray. And
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:49.050
  • our pastor said to us one night, "God told me today that he's
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:56.170
  • called Wally and Marilyn into the ministry." And that really
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:14:02.040
  • resonated with my husband. But now in the meantime we've
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:08.000
  • watched Oral Roberts, we've gone to Voice of Healing. We've seen
  • 00:14:08.010 --> 00:14:13.080
  • William Branam, we've seen miracle ministries so we're not
  • 00:14:13.090 --> 00:14:17.260
  • going to be happy without signs. We're just not going to be
  • 00:14:17.270 --> 00:14:22.110
  • there. And absolutely, the word brings manifestation. MARILYN:
  • 00:14:22.120 --> 00:14:27.080
  • So when the pastor said that I had an aunt in Dalhart, Texas,
  • 00:14:27.090 --> 00:14:35.070
  • she went to a little Assembly of God church. She said, "I'm going
  • 00:14:35.080 --> 00:14:38.150
  • to tell my pastor you'll come and you'll hold a revival
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:42.000
  • meeting." We're about as prepared as a mouse. And so the
  • 00:14:42.010 --> 00:14:45.040
  • pastor invited us. So Wally would fast and pray in the day
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:52.020
  • time. And I thought, these people haven't had anybody saved
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:56.220
  • for several years. So I would go door to door and take women with
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:15:02.170
  • me. And so we had people get saved because we went and got
  • 00:15:02.180 --> 00:15:06.080
  • them. KENNETH: Yeah, amen. Thank God, Marilyn. MARILYN: That's
  • 00:15:06.090 --> 00:15:08.270
  • been a big thing for me to go and get them. And so we had
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:13.010
  • people- KENNETH: So that began really with you way back there
  • 00:15:13.020 --> 00:15:16.010
  • way back then? MARILYN: Way back than, Yeah. KENNETH: Isn't that
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:18.070
  • marvelous? MARILYN: Then we became assistant pastors in
  • 00:15:18.080 --> 00:15:22.150
  • Amarillo, Texas. ER Foster invited us, and that was a huge
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:26.180
  • church at that time. There was 500 people. They Had two
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:30.140
  • assistant pastors. Oh this is just slap happy for Wally, he's
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:35.020
  • leading worship. And so they said, "We have a young married
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:38.220
  • class." Now, see, I'm pretty young. I'm like 26 or 27. They
  • 00:15:38.230 --> 00:15:43.210
  • said, "Would you be interested in teaching it?" I thought, I'm
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:47.220
  • young married, but in Texas when they burp them, I think they get
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:52.220
  • married. They married so young. And so I went and took the
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:16:00.050
  • class. And then, MARILYN: Kenneth, I began to see how the
  • 00:16:00.060 --> 00:16:04.090
  • word would work. So the class grew to about a hundred people
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:08.170
  • in a few months. And what I did is I went after people through
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:13.150
  • the electric company because every new family that moved into
  • 00:16:13.160 --> 00:16:18.250
  • Amarillo had to sign up and they gave me the names. And so I
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:24.140
  • called every name and I had women who helped me and so our
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:29.140
  • class grew. You say, "How did you get them?" We went after
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:33.080
  • them. And that's always been the process with me with God, go
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:38.240
  • after them. They're not going to sit and come to, you have to go
  • 00:16:38.250 --> 00:16:43.060
  • after them. MARILYN: So then we were there two and a half years
  • 00:16:43.070 --> 00:16:49.040
  • and Wally felt like we should go back into evangelism. So we went
  • 00:16:49.050 --> 00:16:52.210
  • back to Denver and we had neighbors that we had led to
  • 00:16:52.220 --> 00:16:58.050
  • Christ and they said, "We just lost our pastor," this little
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:17:02.060
  • church. "Would you help us out until we get somebody?" That's
  • 00:17:02.070 --> 00:17:06.290
  • 65 years ago, the longevity of God. If you had told me then, I
  • 00:17:07.000 --> 00:17:14.230
  • had a thought you were totally crazy. And so we took that
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:18.240
  • church. And ,again, how do you get people? I mean, who wants to
  • 00:17:18.250 --> 00:17:24.000
  • come and here Wally and Marilyn Hickey? What do they know? They
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:27.120
  • haven't been to Bible school. Come on. What do they know? And
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:30.280
  • in your own town, they don't want to come and hear you. So we
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:34.220
  • went after people. MARILYN: And what I did, and to this day, I
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:40.200
  • love to do this, I started a home Bible study and I had seven
  • 00:17:40.210 --> 00:17:45.270
  • women. And over a cup of coffee and a cookie, we studied the
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:51.030
  • Bible and they began to get saved and spirit filled. And
  • 00:17:51.040 --> 00:17:56.080
  • pretty soon I had a hundred, over a hundred Bible studies.
  • 00:17:56.090 --> 00:18:01.010
  • No, I had 22, that's an exaggeration. It grew to a
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:03.210
  • hundred. I had 22 home Bible studies and they said, "You
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:06.230
  • don't have anything for men." So we started a couple study at
  • 00:18:06.240 --> 00:18:10.210
  • night. MARILYN: Now, you say, "Well, that doesn't sound very
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:13.100
  • exciting." But those people said to me, "You ought to go on the
  • 00:18:13.110 --> 00:18:17.250
  • radio." "Well, I don't have the money for the radio." "Well, how
  • 00:18:17.260 --> 00:18:22.030
  • much does it cost?" "Five dollars a day. Five days, that's
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:25.120
  • $25 a month." I went to my husband and he said, "Well, they
  • 00:18:25.130 --> 00:18:31.100
  • like you so well, let them pay for it." Best thing he could
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:34.270
  • have ever said. So I went back to them and they paid for it.
  • 00:18:34.280 --> 00:18:40.020
  • And so pretty soon the Bible studies began to grow and I had
  • 00:18:40.030 --> 00:18:46.080
  • a group of people who took me and sponsored me. And I'm on all
  • 00:18:46.090 --> 00:18:51.050
  • these radio stations and I'm hearing you, I'm hearing Kenneth
  • 00:18:51.060 --> 00:18:57.020
  • Hagin. I know that faith works. This is so powerful, this faith
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:19:03.120
  • works. MARILYN: So after I got very involved in the radio, then
  • 00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:09.000
  • I began to go out to TBN as a TBN teacher and teach once a
  • 00:19:09.010 --> 00:19:14.220
  • week. I didn't go every week, I went every three weeks and than
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:20.000
  • taped them. And then they said to me, "You know, we're getting
  • 00:19:20.010 --> 00:19:24.120
  • so much mail for you. Why don't you go on daily?" Isn't God
  • 00:19:24.130 --> 00:19:29.040
  • cool? Think about the man who said you'll never make it. And
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:34.060
  • you need to think about the people who say negative things.
  • 00:19:34.070 --> 00:19:37.120
  • MARILYN: I had a man say to me when I was early in pastoring,
  • 00:19:37.130 --> 00:19:40.140
  • he said, "Of all the pastor's wives I know, you're the biggest
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:43.130
  • example of a failure." I said, "Well, why do you think that?"
  • 00:19:43.140 --> 00:19:46.190
  • He said, "Because you don't play the piano. You don't play the
  • 00:19:46.200 --> 00:19:49.210
  • organ. You don't lead the worship. You don't lead the
  • 00:19:49.220 --> 00:19:52.140
  • women's missionary council. All you do have those silly little
  • 00:19:52.150 --> 00:19:55.260
  • home Bible studies." KENNETH: Oh, my gracious sake. MARILYN:
  • 00:19:55.270 --> 00:19:59.030
  • Process. And I like to tell people this, I really like too,
  • 00:19:59.040 --> 00:20:04.270
  • because everybody thinks you start up here, you don't.
  • 00:20:04.280 --> 00:20:07.120
  • KENNETH: No, no, no, never. MARILYN: You start being
  • 00:20:07.130 --> 00:20:10.230
  • faithful and saying what the word says and people telling
  • 00:20:10.240 --> 00:20:15.110
  • you, "You don't speak well, why don't you sit down." All of
  • 00:20:15.120 --> 00:20:20.110
  • these things, and holding onto what he says in it. So, Kenneth,
  • 00:20:20.120 --> 00:20:26.270
  • I got nervous about this because I thought, people said to me,
  • 00:20:26.280 --> 00:20:33.090
  • "You're a woman, you shouldn't speak." And yet I felt God had
  • 00:20:33.100 --> 00:20:38.140
  • called me. So I said to the Lord, "You know, I'm a woman."
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:44.260
  • And God said, "Yes, I know." I don't think he was shocked. So I
  • 00:20:44.270 --> 00:20:56.150
  • said, "I don't understand where I am in the body." You have to
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:21:00.180
  • remember this is way back. KENNETH: Oh, yeah. MARILYN: I
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:02.110
  • mean, when women certainly didn't speak. And the Lord said
  • 00:21:02.120 --> 00:21:05.290
  • to me, "You are a bridge." And he said, "You won't just speak
  • 00:21:06.000 --> 00:21:11.260
  • to men and women, you will speak to nations." KENNETH: Praise
  • 00:21:11.270 --> 00:21:14.180
  • God, Marilyn. And you've done it. MARILYN: So you find out
  • 00:21:14.190 --> 00:21:18.010
  • you're a bridge. I think you have seen yourself as a bridge,
  • 00:21:18.020 --> 00:21:21.290
  • haven't you? KENNETH: Yes. MARILYN: You have been a great
  • 00:21:22.000 --> 00:21:24.180
  • bridge for the world. I mean, I go in all... I've been in 136
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:29.290
  • nations. They know you, they love you. They really, really
  • 00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:37.050
  • do. KENNETH: Glory to God. MARILYN: If you say your name,
  • 00:21:37.060 --> 00:21:40.050
  • they turn on. They really do. And I've put my hand on my
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:44.270
  • heart, put my hand on the Bible. That is the truth. So I just
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:49.010
  • started that way. And Wally, God bless Wally, he was so behind
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:54.270
  • me. He would always say, "You are really good," because he'd
  • 00:21:54.280 --> 00:22:02.050
  • have me preach every other Sunday and I'd feel so inferior.
  • 00:22:02.060 --> 00:22:06.210
  • "No, no, you're really good." And I was so shy, i would leave
  • 00:22:06.220 --> 00:22:11.090
  • the service early, go out and sit in the car and roll up the
  • 00:22:11.100 --> 00:22:15.090
  • windows so I wouldn't have to say hello to anybody. MARILYN:
  • 00:22:15.100 --> 00:22:18.190
  • Yeah. And, again, it's very important that we stay in the
  • 00:22:18.200 --> 00:22:25.050
  • process. So I fed myself the word. I fed myself on different
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:32.020
  • teachings of faith. And then I said to God when I was 45, "What
  • 00:22:32.030 --> 00:22:41.050
  • do you want me to do? I don't know what my call is. My husband
  • 00:22:41.060 --> 00:22:45.110
  • is a pastor. He knows I don't know what I am. Am I called? Am
  • 00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:49.090
  • I just with Wally? What do I do?" And that's when I went...
  • 00:22:49.100 --> 00:22:54.050
  • And I only fasted two days. I fasted and prayed and God said,
  • 00:22:54.060 --> 00:22:59.220
  • "I've called you to cover the earth with the word." KENNETH:
  • 00:22:59.230 --> 00:23:02.150
  • Oh, praise God, Marilyn. My, my, my. MARILYN: So how do
  • 00:23:02.160 --> 00:23:04.260
  • you do that? KENNETH: We're out of time already.
  • 00:23:04.270 --> 00:23:11.120
  • We'll be back. Amen. We'll be back in just a moment.
  • 00:23:11.130 --> 00:23:17.060
  • JEREMY: Right now you and I are in this continual process
  • 00:23:22.000 --> 00:23:24.240
  • of faith. And like Marilyn Hickey said, it's important
  • 00:23:24.250 --> 00:23:27.090
  • that we stay in that process. And this is a
  • 00:23:27.100 --> 00:23:30.060
  • big key to walking in the victory in the area that God's
  • 00:23:30.070 --> 00:23:33.190
  • called you to. Never give up, that's the answer right there.
  • 00:23:33.200 --> 00:23:36.240
  • God has a plan for your life and he will provide for you every
  • 00:23:36.250 --> 00:23:41.020
  • single step of the way. Now, your part in it is to stay
  • 00:23:41.030 --> 00:23:44.250
  • hungry, stay hungry for him. Stay in the word of God. Amen?
  • 00:23:44.260 --> 00:23:49.270
  • Now, Marilyn Hickey is releasing a new book called,
  • 00:23:49.280 --> 00:23:52.270
  • It's Not Over Until You Win. In this autobiography she shares
  • 00:23:52.280 --> 00:23:57.140
