  • to take advantage of a time like this.
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:11.000
  • When we all come together on one accord and
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:14.190
  • we can demand some things to happen in the Spirit room.
  • 00:03:14.190 --> 00:03:18.110

  • conversation with everybody.
  • 00:05:23.210 --> 00:05:25.120
  • Because everybody don't understand that.
  • 00:05:25.120 --> 00:05:27.260
  • Because some people think you supposed
  • 00:05:27.260 --> 00:05:29.250
  • to sit around and look sad and you know,
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:32.250
  • going through but, let me tell you something.
  • 00:05:32.250 --> 00:05:35.080
  • Those that walk by faith.
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:37.150
  • We know our outcome!
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:46.100

  • Hey look.
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:56.190
  • And I dare y'all.
  • 00:05:57.140 --> 00:05:58.290
  • I Dee double dare y'all.
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:02.220
  • Look you remember when you used to,
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:04.270
  • you know, was little and you would get
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:06.060
  • in a fight with somebody?
  • 00:06:06.060 --> 00:06:07.200
  • Well I don't know, maybe y'all never fought anybody but.
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:10.100
  • I remember I was getting ready to fight somebody one time
  • 00:06:10.270 --> 00:06:13.140
  • and they put a little chip or something on my shoulder.
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:16.260
  • And it was like okay I dare you
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:19.270
  • whoever would knock that chip off was the bad man.
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:24.150
  • And you know it was like "Uh oh it's on then."
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:28.100
  • So I'm here to tell you,
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:30.260
  • I dare you to knock the chip off
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:35.110
  • of somebody elses shoulders.
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:38.070
  • Off of the enemies camp.
  • 00:06:38.070 --> 00:06:40.190
  • And I dare you to come on one accord.
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:43.180
  • Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:46.260
  • Just let me tell you.
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:48.100
  • There are some things
  • 00:06:48.100 --> 00:06:50.050
  • that happen when people come on one accord.
  • 00:06:50.140 --> 00:06:54.270
  • No, listen to me.
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:57.290
  • There are some things that happen
  • 00:06:59.100 --> 00:07:02.140
  • when people come together on one accord.
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:06.270
  • Speaking the same thing.
  • 00:07:07.000 --> 00:07:09.080
  • Believing the same thing.
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:12.160
  • The Bible says in Acts 2:2,
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:17.060
  • that when the day of Pentecost had fully come.
  • 00:07:17.060 --> 00:07:20.290
  • Aha, and the people were on one accord,
  • 00:07:21.130 --> 00:07:26.090
  • there was a mighty rushing wind.
  • 00:07:26.200 --> 00:07:30.250
  • Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.170
  • And then I heard about two other guys
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:37.230
  • over there in Acts chapter 16.
  • 00:07:38.080 --> 00:07:41.210
  • They came on one accord.
  • 00:07:42.010 --> 00:07:45.160
  • Even in the midst of their trials
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:52.030
  • and tribulations.
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:53.250
  • Even in the midst of being shackled at the ankles.
  • 00:07:53.250 --> 00:07:58.250
  • Even being in the midst of all of their bowels
  • 00:07:59.100 --> 00:08:03.010
  • and all of their stuff.
  • 00:08:03.010 --> 00:08:05.000
  • Not being able to go and do as they please.
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:08.230
  • The Bible says that Paul and Silas came together.
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:13.190
  • And they began to sing Psalms and hymns
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:17.060
  • and minister onto the Lord.
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:19.190
  • And there was a suddenly.
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:23.040
  • I dare you,
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:25.220
  • to come on one accord
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:29.110
  • and lift up the name of Jesus!
  • 00:08:29.110 --> 00:08:32.290
  • Wait, wait, put a demand
  • 00:08:32.290 --> 00:08:36.070
  • on the Spiritual arena and tell the devil
  • 00:08:36.070 --> 00:08:41.060

  • 00:08:41.060 --> 00:08:42.260
  • No we're not gonna take it, anymore!
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:47.040
  • We're coming on one accord.
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:49.230
  • And we're telling him you can't have nothing
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:54.060
  • that belongs to us!
  • 00:08:54.230 --> 00:08:56.280

  • You can't have my strength!
  • 00:08:59.220 --> 00:09:02.010
  • You can't have my wife!
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:04.090

  • We are in for a mighty rushing wind!
  • 00:09:28.160 --> 00:09:33.070
  • We are in for every door to be opened!
  • 00:09:33.260 --> 00:09:38.070

  • He didn't have a lung transplant.
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:59.160
  • He didn't have any of that stuff.
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:00.240

  • And all the details he can't remember, I can.
  • 00:15:07.180 --> 00:15:11.040
  • But now ain't the time to trip.
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:15.110
  • This is a time to keep coming to church.
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:18.120
  • This is the time to keep uniting, keep being in faith,
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:22.230
  • keep doing what you supposed to, pay your tithes.
  • 00:15:22.230 --> 00:15:26.020
  • I'm telling you.
  • 00:15:27.170 --> 00:15:28.250
  • Man God is up to something.

  • Out of what Pastor Mike has gone through.
  • 00:15:36.050 --> 00:15:38.130
  • But I'm just telling you
  • 00:15:38.130 --> 00:15:39.260
  • because the enemy has turned up the heat.
  • 00:15:39.260 --> 00:15:42.130
  • And he ain't playing fair.
  • 00:15:42.230 --> 00:15:44.280

  • 00:15:46.080 --> 00:15:48.200
  • what God wants to do.
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:50.110
  • And so I'm telling you it's like
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:54.030
  • we're on the precipice or the edge
  • 00:15:54.030 --> 00:15:55.290
  • of seeing the hand of God like never before.
  • 00:15:55.290 --> 00:15:59.170

  • they are in faith.
  • 00:16:14.080 --> 00:16:15.200
  • They believe that they are in faith
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:17.100
  • because they know a whole lot of faith scriptures.
  • 00:16:17.100 --> 00:16:19.270
  • You can quote a whole lot of faith.
  • 00:16:20.090 --> 00:16:22.080
