  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:00:32.240 --> 00:00:34.050
  • to get to the promise.
  • 00:00:34.050 --> 00:00:34.090
  • And regardless of how hard the process may be,
  • 00:00:35.040 --> 00:00:38.160
  • regardless if she did not cook,
  • 00:00:38.160 --> 00:00:40.270
  • or did not give you some that night,
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:43.030
  • or whatever the case may be,
  • 00:00:43.030 --> 00:00:45.150
  • you gotta hang in there, champ.
  • 00:00:45.150 --> 00:00:47.230
  • You can't wait 'til the battle's over,
  • 00:00:49.060 --> 00:00:51.120
  • you gotta shout in the process
  • 00:00:51.120 --> 00:00:54.010
  • to receive the promise.
  • 00:00:54.160 --> 00:00:56.030
  • Come on E City, receive that as well.
  • 00:00:59.070 --> 00:01:00.210
  • So again this year,
  • 00:01:02.100 --> 00:01:04.170
  • we're gonna be focusing in two areas,
  • 00:01:04.170 --> 00:01:07.050
  • that's rest and prayer.
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:09.040
  • Say, "Rest and prayer".
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:12.030
  • And ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:01:12.290 --> 00:01:14.050
  • you're going to be able to rest better,
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:17.060
  • or enter into this rest
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:18.250
  • that I've been describing by your prayer life.
  • 00:01:18.250 --> 00:01:22.230
  • Your prayer life will be able to sustain you
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:26.260
  • in this rest that God has promised us.
  • 00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:30.070
  • So we've been going through
  • 00:01:30.070 --> 00:01:31.220
  • some very foundational principles,
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:33.250
  • and foundational things concerning this title,
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:37.270
  • some things you may have missed concerning faith.
  • 00:01:37.270 --> 00:01:41.220
  • Faith is essential for the believer's life.
  • 00:01:41.220 --> 00:01:45.130
  • What did I just say?
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:46.200
  • - [Congregation] Faith is essential
  • 00:01:46.200 --> 00:01:48.040
  • for the believer's life.
  • 00:01:48.040 --> 00:01:49.140
  • - The scripture says four times,
  • 00:01:49.140 --> 00:01:50.270
  • and I'm reviewing some of these things.
  • 00:01:50.270 --> 00:01:53.230
  • The bible says in Habakkuk,
  • 00:01:53.230 --> 00:01:55.270
  • "The just shall live by..."
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:58.010
  • In Romans, Chapter One,
  • 00:01:58.010 --> 00:01:59.160
  • "The just shall live by..."
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:01.200
  • In Romans One, the scripture...
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:04.280
  • In Hebrews 10, the scripture says,
  • 00:02:07.080 --> 00:02:09.240
  • "The just shall live by..."
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:12.060
  • And in Galatians, Chapter Three,
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:14.150
  • I believe it's verse 11,
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:15.270
  • the scripture again says,
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:17.190
  • "The just shall live by faith."
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:20.030
  • So all of those who are the blood bought,
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:23.070
  • blood washed children of the Most High God,
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:25.280
  • we have been commanded,
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:27.290
  • it has not be kindly suggested,
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:30.150
  • but it's been commanded
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:31.230
  • that we who are of God
  • 00:02:31.230 --> 00:02:34.180
  • must live by--
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:37.270
  • - [Congregation] Faith.
  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:38.260
  • - Come on, talk back to me.
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:39.150
  • By what?
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:40.160
  • - [Congregation] Faith.
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:41.060
  • - Faith.
  • 00:02:41.060 --> 00:02:42.040
  • So, if we have to live by faith,
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:43.280
  • it is absolutely essential that we understand
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:47.040
  • the intricacies, the nuances,
  • 00:02:47.040 --> 00:02:50.080
  • the dynamics of faith,
  • 00:02:50.080 --> 00:02:52.220
  • in order to overcome every life instance.
  • 00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:56.170
  • Let me tell you something.
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:58.080
  • If in fact all the promises of God
  • 00:02:58.080 --> 00:03:00.230
  • are accessed by our faith,
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:02.210
  • then there should be nothing
  • 00:03:02.210 --> 00:03:04.230
  • that exists concerning faith
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:07.120
  • that we aren't aware of.
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:09.120
  • I felt I was gonna get a better "Amen" than that.
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:12.020
  • I said, "I thought I was gonna get
  • 00:03:12.020 --> 00:03:13.230
  • "a better Amen than that."
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:16.170
  • And so it's important that we lay out
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:19.070
  • a clear foundation and go through some
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:22.040
  • of the foundational things as it relates to faith
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:25.120
  • in order to build the proper kind of structure,
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:29.010
  • or life as it relates to faith.
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:31.100
  • The quality of your foundation
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:34.110
  • will determine the degree of your stability.
  • 00:03:34.110 --> 00:03:38.070
  • The quality of your foundation
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:41.090
  • will determine the degree of your stability.
  • 00:03:41.090 --> 00:03:44.150
  • The bible says that you ought to be steadfast,
  • 00:03:44.150 --> 00:03:47.020
  • unmovable, always abounding
  • 00:03:47.020 --> 00:03:50.030
  • in the work of the Lord.
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.280
  • But your foundation will determine that.
  • 00:03:51.280 --> 00:03:54.250
  • And so in order to have what God
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:58.100
  • intended for us to have,
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:04:00.130
  • we must have a consistent lifestyle
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:04.060
  • of this walk of faith.
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:06.030
  • Say, "I must--
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:07.000
  • - [Congregation] I must--
  • 00:04:07.000 --> 00:04:07.280
  • - have a consistent lifestyle--
  • 00:04:07.280 --> 00:04:09.090
  • - [Congregation] have a consistent lifestyle--
  • 00:04:09.090 --> 00:04:11.170
  • - in this walk of faith.
  • 00:04:11.170 --> 00:04:12.230
  • - [Congregation] in this walk of faith.
  • 00:04:12.230 --> 00:04:13.270
  • I told you that consistency is essential
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:17.050
  • for the believer's life
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:20.100
  • because consistency is the key
  • 00:04:20.100 --> 00:04:23.150
  • to overcoming in life.
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:25.170
  • Whatever you do consistently,
  • 00:04:25.170 --> 00:04:27.230
  • is what you will become better at.
  • 00:04:27.230 --> 00:04:30.160
  • You got it?
  • 00:04:30.290 --> 00:04:32.130
  • Your rest is kept by the life of faith that you possess.
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:37.030
  • This rest that I'm talking about,
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:39.090
  • have you ever been uneasy about something
  • 00:04:39.210 --> 00:04:43.120
  • when you were believing God for something?
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:46.010
  • Indicators as such is
  • 00:04:46.270 --> 00:04:50.020
  • the inability to sleep,
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:52.060
  • or you become snappy,
  • 00:04:53.050 --> 00:04:55.040
  • or you're worried,
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:58.010
  • or you are in fear.
  • 00:04:58.010 --> 00:04:59.240
  • Anytime any of those things exist,
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:03.030
  • it is obvious that you have not
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:05.120
  • entered into this kind of rest
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:07.130
  • that Jesus said that you could have.
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:10.030
  • So your rest is kept by the life
  • 00:05:10.030 --> 00:05:13.170
  • of faith that you possess.
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:15.280
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:05:15.280 --> 00:05:16.280
  • There is no rest like God's rest.
  • 00:05:16.280 --> 00:05:19.220
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:21.000
  • - I thought I was gonna get
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:21.270
  • a better "Amen" than that.
  • 00:05:21.270 --> 00:05:23.170
  • Push the neighbor in front of you and say,
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:25.180
  • "Are you gonna say "Amen" about anything?"
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:27.150
  • - [Congregation] Are you gonna say
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.080
  • Amen about anything?
  • 00:05:28.080 --> 00:05:29.190
  • - Now turn around and say, "Yes, I am
  • 00:05:32.160 --> 00:05:34.060
  • "but you betta keep your doggone hands off of me,
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:38.100
  • "in the name of Jesus."
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:40.050
  • I was talking to you about
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:42.080
  • how Dr. Dee Dee literally fought
  • 00:05:42.080 --> 00:05:45.290
  • three to four weeks longer than I
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:48.250
  • because I was reposing.
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:51.080
  • I literally...
  • 00:05:52.280 --> 00:05:54.070
  • And reposing, and that's one of
  • 00:05:54.070 --> 00:05:56.070
  • the Hebrew definitions,
  • 00:05:56.070 --> 00:05:57.210
  • and I'll get to that later on in my life
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:06:00.090
  • because I was reposing at that time.
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:03.160
  • And that doesn't mean I was dead.
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:06.000
  • A lot of people ask me,
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:07.220
  • "Did you see Jesus while you were out?"
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:09.120
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:11.190
  • - You gotta be absent from the body
  • 00:06:11.190 --> 00:06:13.100
  • to be in the presence of...
  • 00:06:13.100 --> 00:06:14.190
  • I never died but I did go to Dubai.
  • 00:06:14.190 --> 00:06:17.040
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:20.290
  • - I went to Dubai, I went to Cleveland,
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:23.160
  • and I was mad with R. A. Vernon, my friend,
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:25.250
  • 'cause he didn't come see me.
  • 00:06:25.250 --> 00:06:27.080
  • I mean all of this was going on.
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:28.260
  • In Dubai, I was trading gold with Kenneth Copeland.
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:32.070
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.190
  • - Glory to God, I'm lookin' for some
  • 00:06:34.190 --> 00:06:36.120
  • of that gold right now.
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:38.040
  • I'll see Kenneth tomorrow, actually.
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:40.110
  • And I went to Chicago.
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:43.010
  • Where else did I go, baby?
  • 00:06:43.080 --> 00:06:44.260
  • Oh, Miami.
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:46.240
  • I was traveling.
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:48.140
  • It was amazing to me.
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:50.070
  • And although I was asleep
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:53.040
  • for three to four weeks,
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:55.250
  • it seemed like over night.
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:58.080
  • When I woke up, I thought I just had been
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:07:00.210
  • out of it a night,
  • 00:07:00.210 --> 00:07:02.100
  • and three to four weeks had passed.
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:05.060
  • And there was Dee Dee still calm and cool
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:09.040
  • as the back side of your pillow.
  • 00:07:09.040 --> 00:07:11.190
  • The girl was just as...
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:13.170
  • She was in as much rest as I was
  • 00:07:13.170 --> 00:07:17.050
  • even though she had to face
  • 00:07:17.050 --> 00:07:19.070
  • the same circumstances every single day.
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:22.140
  • Whoo!
  • 00:07:22.260 --> 00:07:24.040
  • Ain't no woman like the one I got, unh
  • 00:07:24.040 --> 00:07:26.110
  • Come on, girl.
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:28.110
  • I loveded her.
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:31.060
  • How long we been married today, baby?
  • 00:07:32.010 --> 00:07:33.200
  • How many days?
  • 00:07:33.200 --> 00:07:35.020
  • - 10.000
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.010
  • - [Pastor Freeman] 10.000
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:36.220
  • - 800
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:37.160
  • - [Pastor Freeman] 800
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:38.070
  • - and 15.
  • 00:07:38.070 --> 00:07:39.100
  • - and 15 days.
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:41.000
  • You go with your bad self, girl.
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:43.030
  • I'm reminding her every single day.
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:46.000
  • That's how she's been able to keep with it.
  • 00:07:46.180 --> 00:07:48.190
  • I said, " Now tomorrow, just add one more day,"
  • 00:07:48.190 --> 00:07:51.030
  • to what you just said.
  • 00:07:52.070 --> 00:07:54.020
  • But, she was fighting
  • 00:07:54.020 --> 00:07:55.130
  • and I can't tell you how much...
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:58.230
  • Okay, have you ever been in something
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:01.230
  • where you wish you could just go to sleep
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:04.130
  • and it will be all over with?
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:06.260
  • Come on, talk to me.
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.260
  • I said have you ever been just through something,
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:11.180
  • and you just wish, "Man, I wish I could just
  • 00:08:11.180 --> 00:08:14.010
  • "go to sleep and wake up,
  • 00:08:14.010 --> 00:08:15.250
  • "and all of this would just be over with.
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:19.160
  • "I am just so sick and tired."
  • 00:08:19.160 --> 00:08:22.120
  • See, first of all, you gotta watch your confession.
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:25.000
  • Stop saying something's killing you,
  • 00:08:25.000 --> 00:08:27.210
  • stop saying you're sick and tired,
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:30.010
  • stop talking about I almost died,
  • 00:08:30.010 --> 00:08:32.190
  • because you'll have what you say.
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:35.140
  • But I understand with what you're talking about
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:38.280
  • because we are looking for peace,
  • 00:08:38.280 --> 00:08:41.160
  • we're looking for rest
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:43.010
  • in the midst of storms when things happen to us.
  • 00:08:43.010 --> 00:08:46.110
  • We're looking for that secret place.
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:49.040
  • Well, Psalms 91 is the place
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:51.100
  • where you should end up.
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:52.230
  • "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most..."
  • 00:08:52.230 --> 00:08:56.080
  • Whoo!
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:57.110
  • I felt like shoutin' all by myself.
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:08:58.120
  • - [Congregation] Whoo!
  • 00:08:58.120 --> 00:09:00.200
  • - And so, she entered into that place
  • 00:09:00.200 --> 00:09:03.190
  • and the girl was as steady as anyone could be
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:07.120
  • to the point that a lot of people
  • 00:09:07.290 --> 00:09:09.260
  • were concerned that she was in denial.
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:13.030
  • Some people were like, "She is not facing reality."
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:15.250
  • Well, when you're walking by faith,
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:18.020
  • there's another reality that exists
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:21.010
  • above the reality that you're in.
  • 00:09:21.010 --> 00:09:23.210
  • My doctor there, Dr. Grizette,
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:25.160
  • I thank God for him.
  • 00:09:25.160 --> 00:09:27.090
  • He saw some things
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:29.040
  • far beyond what the medical part
  • 00:09:29.270 --> 00:09:32.200
  • of it was saying.
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:33.250
  • And I didn't know I was as bad off
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:36.220
  • when he was around.
  • 00:09:36.220 --> 00:09:38.080
  • How many of y'all know you need
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:40.130
  • a good doctor like that
  • 00:09:40.130 --> 00:09:41.230
  • who can put the signs with the scripture
  • 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:44.040
  • and walk by faith and mix it with faith,
  • 00:09:44.040 --> 00:09:46.200
  • and give you hope in your situation?
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:49.210
  • Glory to God!
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:51.000
  • Well, can I just get you to praise God
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:55.000
  • just for a moment, to take a breath, just...
  • 00:09:55.000 --> 00:09:57.200
  • Whoo!
  • 00:09:58.110 --> 00:09:59.170
  • - [Congregation] Whoo! Hallelujah!
  • 00:09:59.170 --> 00:10:02.190
  • - And it's not for what he's going to do
  • 00:10:02.190 --> 00:10:04.280
  • but for what he's already done.
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:07.160
  • Are you hearing what I'm telling you?
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:09.170
  • - [Congregation] Yes!
  • 00:10:09.170 --> 00:10:11.200
  • - Glory to God!
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:12.250
  • And you gotta learn how to
  • 00:10:15.060 --> 00:10:16.210
  • praise him in the little things.
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:18.290
  • I saw something on the floor the other day
  • 00:10:20.270 --> 00:10:23.090
  • and I didn't feel like picking it up.
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:24.250
  • The first thing that came to my mind
  • 00:10:24.250 --> 00:10:26.060
  • was to kick it.
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:27.120
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.270
  • - Hunch your neighbor and say,
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:31.090
  • "I'm glad that wasn't Dr. Dee Dee on the floor."
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:32.200
  • The first thing I thought about was kicking it
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:35.290
  • because I'm so excited about being able
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:39.050
  • to kick things now, or move any muscle,
  • 00:10:39.050 --> 00:10:42.000
  • I kicked the thing and I said,
  • 00:10:42.000 --> 00:10:43.210
  • "Glory to God!
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:44.180
  • Look a there! Look a there!
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:45.270
  • I worship God just because
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:48.210
  • I'm able to move my fingers.
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:51.030
  • Because when you can't move your fingers,
  • 00:10:51.030 --> 00:10:53.170
  • you don't know sometimes how much
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:55.200
  • of a big deal it is to move your fingers.
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:58.270
  • The fact that I can wave my arms now
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:01.270
  • and give God praise.
  • 00:11:01.270 --> 00:11:03.120
  • See I don't want you to have to go through anything,
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:06.020
  • to take the little things,
  • 00:11:06.020 --> 00:11:07.250
  • and exalt God with.
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:09.190
  • So if we could one more time,
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:11.190
  • just for the...
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:12.240
  • Look, let everything that have breath--
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:16.290
  • (congregation shouting and praising)
  • 00:11:16.290 --> 00:11:19.050
  • - Whoo!
  • 00:11:19.050 --> 00:11:20.070
  • Hallelujah!
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:22.290
  • (congregation shouting and praising)
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:27.120
  • - Because when I talk about having breath,
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:35.080
  • I got a machine up there now
  • 00:11:36.050 --> 00:11:37.230
  • that I plug myself up to
  • 00:11:37.230 --> 00:11:39.150
  • to assist me in breathing,
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:41.050
  • and here you sit there,
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:42.180
  • and you can breathe in and out at will.
  • 00:11:42.180 --> 00:11:45.140
  • Everybody can't do what you are doing right now
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:48.050
  • but God has given you...
  • 00:11:48.050 --> 00:11:50.130
  • Um!
  • 00:11:50.130 --> 00:11:51.170
  • (congregation shouting and praising)
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:53.020
  • - But I'm getting stronger as the days go by.
  • 00:11:53.020 --> 00:11:55.160
  • And I'm able to breathe better as the days go by.
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:59.140
  • Are you hearing me?
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:00.210
  • It's because I'm taking the breath
  • 00:12:00.210 --> 00:12:02.150
  • that I breathe and I'm using it
  • 00:12:02.150 --> 00:12:04.240
  • to praise Him (laughing).
  • 00:12:04.240 --> 00:12:07.200
  • Come on, Ron!
  • 00:12:07.200 --> 00:12:08.270
  • Whoo! Glory!
  • 00:12:10.130 --> 00:12:12.210
  • Calm down!
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:17.200
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:12:17.200 --> 00:12:19.230
  • But he's been so good!
  • 00:12:20.110 --> 00:12:22.140
  • - [Congregation] Yeah!
  • 00:12:22.140 --> 00:12:24.030
  • - 'Cause I could have been dead,
  • 00:12:25.040 --> 00:12:26.270
  • sleeping in my grave,
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:29.230
  • but Dr. Pee Pee made the devil behave.
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:33.200
  • - [Congregation] Yay! Yeah! Whoo!
  • 00:12:33.200 --> 00:12:38.190
  • - Come on give the Lord another shout!
  • 00:12:39.020 --> 00:12:41.130
  • (congregation shouting and praising)
  • 00:12:41.130 --> 00:12:46.100
  • I receive, I receive.
  • 00:12:51.180 --> 00:12:53.170
  • So there is this rest.
  • 00:12:53.170 --> 00:12:55.170
  • I receive. Yeah.
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:59.090
  • There is this rest
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:02.080
  • that Hebrews talks about.
  • 00:13:02.210 --> 00:13:05.090
  • A rest that will cause you...
  • 00:13:05.090 --> 00:13:07.010
  • Because when I was asleep
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:08.200
  • I didn't worry about a thing.
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:10.200
  • Don't you worry
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:12.040
  • about a thing
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:16.020
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:13:17.230 --> 00:13:22.150
  • I was not fearful about anything,
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:25.220
  • I was not snappy, I was not uneased about anything,
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:30.010
  • nothing bothered me.
  • 00:13:30.010 --> 00:13:31.230
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:33.210
  • - Come on shout, "Nothing bothers me either."
  • 00:13:33.210 --> 00:13:35.250
  • - [Congregation] Nothing bothers me either!
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:37.260
  • - Some of y'all old enough.
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:39.230
  • Some of these young people,
  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:41.280
  • they probably don't know.
  • 00:13:41.280 --> 00:13:44.040
  • However, this girl had to face
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:49.160
  • everything I was going through day by day.
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:54.000
  • And I'ma tell you this.
  • 00:13:54.170 --> 00:13:55.280
  • Watch this.
  • 00:13:55.280 --> 00:13:57.030
  • The rest that God has promised us
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:13:59.090
  • is equivalent to your going to sleep.
  • 00:13:59.090 --> 00:14:02.190
  • Whatever you are seeking for when you say,
  • 00:14:02.190 --> 00:14:06.080
  • "I wish I could just go to sleep
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:08.160
  • "and wake up, and this would be all over with."
  • 00:14:08.160 --> 00:14:11.130
  • The same kind of rest exists
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:15.060
  • while you are up.
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:16.270
  • Okay, Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:18.230
  • Thank you Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:19.200
  • Go to Mark, Chapter Four.
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:21.060
  • Keep your finger in Hebrews
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.230
  • because it make take you some time
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:24.090
  • to find that again.
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:25.200
  • So, go to Mark, Chapter Four,
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:29.280
  • and let's look at...
  • 00:14:29.280 --> 00:14:31.020
  • What verse?
  • 00:14:32.160 --> 00:14:33.130
  • - [One of the Pastors] 35.
  • 00:14:33.130 --> 00:14:34.070
  • - 35.
  • 00:14:34.070 --> 00:14:35.010
  • 35 would do, I reckon.
  • 00:14:35.010 --> 00:14:36.160
  • 35, Mark Four...
  • 00:14:37.270 --> 00:14:40.100
  • See when you in the spirit, Pastor,
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:42.140
  • you can know all of these things.
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:44.010
  • There was nobody in the spirit but you.
  • 00:14:45.120 --> 00:14:47.120
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:14:47.210 --> 00:14:49.240
  • - And if you believe that,
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:52.240
  • I want to sell you something
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:53.270
  • right after service.
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:55.150
  • Ah, I love it.
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:15:00.080
  • What did I say, "Matthew"?
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:01.180
  • - [Congregation] Mark.
  • 00:15:01.180 --> 00:15:02.080
  • - Mark what?
  • 00:15:02.080 --> 00:15:03.020
  • - [Congregation] Four.
  • 00:15:03.020 --> 00:15:04.000
  • - And what verse did Pastor say?
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:05.050
  • - [Congregation] 35.
  • 00:15:05.050 --> 00:15:06.110
  • - 35. Let's look at 35 and see.
  • 00:15:06.110 --> 00:15:08.290
  • It's down there somewhere.
  • 00:15:10.100 --> 00:15:11.040
  • Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
  • 00:15:11.040 --> 00:15:11.280
  • Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:12.280
  • On the same day.
  • 00:15:12.280 --> 00:15:14.020
  • On what day?
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:15.000
  • - [Congregation] The same day.
  • 00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:15.290
  • - When evening had--
  • 00:15:15.290 --> 00:15:17.180
  • - [Congregation] Come.
  • 00:15:17.180 --> 00:15:18.140
  • - What does that mean?
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:19.120
  • - [Congregation] It was evening.
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:20.260
  • - It was evening time.
  • 00:15:20.260 --> 00:15:22.000
  • Don't get deep.
  • 00:15:23.100 --> 00:15:24.150
  • Uh!
  • 00:15:26.230 --> 00:15:27.260
  • He, capital H, said to them.
  • 00:15:31.000 --> 00:15:33.270
  • He, capital H, said to them,
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:38.020
  • "Let us cross over to the other side."
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:42.230
  • Now in my bible that's in red.
  • 00:15:42.230 --> 00:15:45.000
  • So who would the He be in this instance?
  • 00:15:45.190 --> 00:15:47.240
  • - [Congregation] Jesus.
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:48.210
  • - Jesus said to the them,
  • 00:15:48.210 --> 00:15:49.240
  • who is the them?
  • 00:15:49.240 --> 00:15:50.280
  • - [Congregation] The disciples.
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:52.000
  • - His disciples said to them,
  • 00:15:52.000 --> 00:15:53.140
  • "And you'll find out..."
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:54.260
  • Watch this.
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:15:56.020
  • You'll find out inside of the them there,
  • 00:15:56.020 --> 00:15:59.080
  • there is an us and a them.
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:02.030
  • Because everybody who's in here is in
  • 00:16:03.110 --> 00:16:06.260
  • one of these group.
  • 00:16:06.260 --> 00:16:08.120
  • Either you are the us or you're the them.
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:11.230
  • In Hebrews, we're going to see
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:13.080
  • the difference between the us and the them.
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:16.000
  • Let me just clue you in.
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:17.080
  • The bible says that the Word did not profit them
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:20.210
  • like it profit us.
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:23.090
  • Now, you gonna have to determine
  • 00:16:23.160 --> 00:16:24.190
  • if you are part of the us,
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:26.040
  • or you a part of them.
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:27.120
  • That doesn't exclude you from being a believer
  • 00:16:27.120 --> 00:16:30.090
  • because you are a believer.
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:32.010
  • But there's some believers who don't qualify
  • 00:16:32.010 --> 00:16:36.020
  • for what He's talking about in this respect.
  • 00:16:36.020 --> 00:16:39.230
  • There was another man in the book of Matthew,
  • 00:16:39.280 --> 00:16:42.120
  • Chapter Number Nine,
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:44.010
  • where he brought his son to Jesus,
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:46.100
  • or His disciples first,
  • 00:16:46.100 --> 00:16:48.030
  • or did he bring him to Jesus?
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.160
  • And Jesus asked him, "Do you believe
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:52.240
  • " all things are possible?"
  • 00:16:52.240 --> 00:16:54.080
  • He says, "Yeah, I believe, but what I need you to do
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:57.130
  • "is help my unbelief."
  • 00:16:57.130 --> 00:17:00.250
  • Well unbelief is an enemy to your faith,
  • 00:17:00.290 --> 00:17:04.030
  • and we're going to understand this a little more
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:06.010
  • because the more you convince yourself inwardly,
  • 00:17:06.010 --> 00:17:10.140
  • the more you'll be able to move things outwardly.
  • 00:17:10.140 --> 00:17:14.180
  • Shout that,
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:15.160
  • "The more I convince myself--
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:17.130
  • - [Congregation] The more I convince myself--
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.140
  • - inwardly--
  • 00:17:19.140 --> 00:17:20.110
  • - [Congregation] inwardly--
  • 00:17:20.110 --> 00:17:21.160
  • - the more I'll be able to move--
  • 00:17:21.160 --> 00:17:22.280
  • - [Congregation] the more I'll be able to move--
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.160
  • - things outwardly--
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:25.210
  • - [Congregation] things outwardly.
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:26.150
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:17:26.150 --> 00:17:27.220
  • He said, 'Let us cross over to the other side."
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:31.070
  • Now when they had left the multitude,
  • 00:17:31.070 --> 00:17:33.250
  • they took with Him along in the boat as He was.
  • 00:17:33.250 --> 00:17:38.210
  • The other little boats,
  • 00:17:39.060 --> 00:17:40.140
  • they were also with Him.
  • 00:17:40.140 --> 00:17:42.090
  • A great windstorm arose and the waves beat not
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:46.200
  • against the boat but into the boat.
  • 00:17:46.200 --> 00:17:50.220
  • One translation said, "The waves
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:52.170
  • "poured over into the boat,
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:55.050
  • "so that it was already filling."
  • 00:17:55.050 --> 00:17:57.280
  • Now, Houston, we have a problem,
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:00.150
  • because anytime water is filling in the boat
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:04.110
  • that means that boat has the potential
  • 00:18:04.110 --> 00:18:06.180
  • to do what?
  • 00:18:06.180 --> 00:18:07.120
  • - [Congregation] Sink.
  • 00:18:07.120 --> 00:18:08.100
  • - And in the midst of a storm
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:09.150
  • while the boat is rocking back to for.
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:11.230
  • Rock the boat
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:12.200
  • Don't rock the boat, baby
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:14.030
  • Rock
  • 00:18:14.030 --> 00:18:14.270
  • Y'a...
  • 00:18:14.270 --> 00:18:16.020
  • Okay, okay, don't worry about it.
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:17.000
  • Turn to your neighbor and say,
  • 00:18:17.000 --> 00:18:18.070
  • "Pastor has something different this morning."
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:21.010
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:23.060
  • - All the old hits are coming up.
  • 00:18:23.060 --> 00:18:24.190
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:18:24.190 --> 00:18:28.140
  • - But the boat is rocking.
  • 00:18:29.030 --> 00:18:31.000
  • Water is pouring over into the boat.
  • 00:18:32.060 --> 00:18:35.020
  • But look a here.
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:36.070
  • Look what happened.
  • 00:18:36.070 --> 00:18:37.150
  • Watch this.
  • 00:18:37.150 --> 00:18:38.200
  • But He, capital H, was in the stern
  • 00:18:39.120 --> 00:18:43.220
  • asleep on a pillow,
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:45.230
  • and they awoke Him and said to Him...
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:49.240
  • First of all, I got a problem.
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:52.050
  • Why wake up the Word?
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:54.170
  • If the Word is sleep, just do what the Word is doing,
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:58.160
  • and you'll get through
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:18:59.210
  • like the Word has gotten through.
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:02.100
  • No, you better get a hold of this
  • 00:19:02.100 --> 00:19:03.250
  • because if it were me,
  • 00:19:03.250 --> 00:19:05.180
  • if I were on that ship with them,
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:07.140
  • and I saw Jesus asleep...
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:09.250
  • Now, I can't tell you I would have gone to sleep,
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:12.120
  • but I would have laid right next to Him
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:15.130
  • as though I was sleep,
  • 00:19:15.130 --> 00:19:17.030
  • because if He ain't gonna worry about nothing,
  • 00:19:17.030 --> 00:19:19.210
  • I ain't gonna worry about nothing.
  • 00:19:20.280 --> 00:19:23.000
  • And if He knows we're not going down...
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:24.280
  • See there's something about this rest
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:27.030
  • that will cause you to literally be at peace
  • 00:19:27.030 --> 00:19:30.240
  • in every life instance.
  • 00:19:30.240 --> 00:19:32.270
  • And Jesus was trying to prove a point to them.
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:35.190
  • He said, "If I'm not worried about anything,
  • 00:19:35.190 --> 00:19:38.210
  • don't you worry about anything."
  • 00:19:40.010 --> 00:19:41.280
  • Come on, lean on over on your neighbor and say,
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:44.000
  • "Don't worry about anything, little buddy."
  • 00:19:44.000 --> 00:19:46.110
  • - [Congregation] Don't worry about anything.
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:48.020
  • Watch this.
  • 00:19:49.180 --> 00:19:50.240
  • A great windstorm arose and the waves
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:53.070
  • beat into the boat,
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:54.220
  • so it was already filling,
  • 00:19:54.220 --> 00:19:56.280
  • but He was in the stern asleep on the pillow,
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:20:00.180
  • and they awoke Him and said to Him,
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:03.290
  • "Teacher, Master, do you not care
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:07.000
  • "that we are perishing?"
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:08.230
  • Watch this.
  • 00:20:08.230 --> 00:20:09.290
  • Then He arose and rebuked the wind
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:12.080
  • and said to the sea, "Peace...
  • 00:20:12.080 --> 00:20:15.080
  • Come on somebody.
  • 00:20:15.080 --> 00:20:16.080
  • - [Congregation] Be still.
  • 00:20:16.080 --> 00:20:17.150
  • - "Be still", and the wind did what?
  • 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:19.090
  • - [Congregation] Ceased.
  • 00:20:19.090 --> 00:20:20.160
  • - Ceased, which is one of the definitions,
  • 00:20:20.160 --> 00:20:23.070
  • or meanings for this Hebrew word
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:25.230
  • that I'll give you in a moment.
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:27.150
  • The wind ceased and there was a great calm.
  • 00:20:27.150 --> 00:20:30.140
  • Check this out.
  • 00:20:30.280 --> 00:20:31.230
  • Dig this.
  • 00:20:31.230 --> 00:20:32.160
  • Watch this.
  • 00:20:32.160 --> 00:20:33.100
  • But He said unto them,
  • 00:20:33.120 --> 00:20:34.240
  • "Why are you so fearful?
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:38.020
  • "How is it that you have no faith?"
  • 00:20:39.090 --> 00:20:44.000
  • Now go back to the Hebrews Four
  • 00:20:44.000 --> 00:20:45.210
  • because we're gonna see something there.
  • 00:20:45.210 --> 00:20:47.210
  • Hebrews Four.
  • 00:20:47.210 --> 00:20:49.080
  • Now, while Jesus
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:53.000
  • was asleep the best thing
  • 00:20:53.000 --> 00:20:55.110
  • they could have done
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:56.190
  • was just believe what He said from the beginning.
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:21:00.110
  • They didn't have to go to sleep,
  • 00:21:01.200 --> 00:21:03.060
  • and neither did I,
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:05.020
  • if in fact I was on this ship,
  • 00:21:05.020 --> 00:21:07.190
  • I did not have to go to sleep,
  • 00:21:07.190 --> 00:21:09.200
  • but all I had to do is believe
  • 00:21:09.200 --> 00:21:11.230
  • the Word that He gave from the beginning.
  • 00:21:11.230 --> 00:21:13.280
  • If you remember in verse 35,
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:16.060
  • He said, "Let us go to the other side."
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:19.110
  • Now, anytime Jesus say we're going to the other side,
  • 00:21:19.110 --> 00:21:22.280
  • we're going to the other side.
  • 00:21:23.190 --> 00:21:25.260
  • Now, guess what?
  • 00:21:25.260 --> 00:21:26.270
  • It did not guarantee us
  • 00:21:26.270 --> 00:21:28.280
  • that we were not going to run
  • 00:21:28.280 --> 00:21:30.150
  • into anything on our way,
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:33.240
  • but we are going to the other side,
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:36.090
  • because sometimes when we receive
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:38.120
  • promises from God, all hell break loose
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:41.150
  • before we can get to that promise.
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:44.010
  • And some people confuse what's going on
  • 00:21:44.010 --> 00:21:46.290
  • in the process simply because they don't keep
  • 00:21:46.290 --> 00:21:49.210
  • their eye on the promise.
  • 00:21:49.210 --> 00:21:51.270
  • Now, you can come up and teach that right now,
  • 00:21:51.270 --> 00:21:53.280
  • but I'm not gonna let you.
  • 00:21:53.280 --> 00:21:55.060
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:21:55.060 --> 00:21:57.230
  • - Taking over my message.
  • 00:21:57.230 --> 00:21:59.020
  • Because Dr. Dee Dee is bent on
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:03.080
  • why people are putting their focus on the process,
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:06.200
  • you need to keep your focus on the promise
  • 00:22:06.200 --> 00:22:08.280
  • because in the meantime, in between time...
  • 00:22:08.280 --> 00:22:12.230
  • I feel like bust...
  • 00:22:12.230 --> 00:22:14.020
  • Oh, no...
  • 00:22:14.020 --> 00:22:14.290
  • Keep what you got
  • 00:22:16.290 --> 00:22:18.040
  • 'Til you get what you need, y'all
  • 00:22:18.040 --> 00:22:19.190
  • Okay, okay.
  • 00:22:19.190 --> 00:22:20.120
  • Alright, alright.
  • 00:22:20.120 --> 00:22:21.240
  • Come on. Okay.
  • 00:22:21.240 --> 00:22:22.200
  • Back to the Word.
  • 00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:23.160
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:26.150
  • - The spirit of Chuck Brown just--
  • 00:22:26.150 --> 00:22:27.190
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:32.110
  • You were promised a good marriage
  • 00:22:34.270 --> 00:22:37.080
  • but your wife is acting like satan's sister.
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:40.240
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:22:40.240 --> 00:22:45.060
  • And now you're wondering, "I have to live
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:49.240
  • "with this same person for the rest of my life."
  • 00:22:49.240 --> 00:22:52.280
  • Well, get your eyes off the process.
  • 00:22:53.260 --> 00:22:56.020
  • Because the fact that Jesus said,
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:58.030
  • "We're going to the other side",
  • 00:22:58.030 --> 00:22:59.220
  • already predetermined that we're going to get there.
  • 00:22:59.220 --> 00:23:04.070
  • Now again, I can not promise you
  • 00:23:04.070 --> 00:23:07.050
  • that on your way to whatever
  • 00:23:07.050 --> 00:23:09.000
  • you're believing Him for...
  • 00:23:09.000 --> 00:23:10.190
  • Come on somebody!
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:11.250
  • Because I'm going through a lot right now,
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:14.210
  • even focusing in on the promise.
  • 00:23:14.210 --> 00:23:17.150
  • I know I got the promise
  • 00:23:17.150 --> 00:23:18.260
  • but they're certain things in the process
  • 00:23:18.260 --> 00:23:21.130
  • that are not so comfortable to me.
  • 00:23:21.130 --> 00:23:24.150
  • I hate going...
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:25.270
  • As much as I love my therapist,
  • 00:23:25.270 --> 00:23:27.220
  • I hate going in.
  • 00:23:27.220 --> 00:23:29.020
  • I know it's a part of the process,
  • 00:23:29.020 --> 00:23:31.090
  • so I gotta learn to endure the process
  • 00:23:31.090 --> 00:23:34.250
  • to get to the promise.
  • 00:23:34.250 --> 00:23:36.160
  • And regardless of how hard the process may be,
  • 00:23:36.160 --> 00:23:40.230
  • regardless if she did not cook,
  • 00:23:40.230 --> 00:23:43.040
  • or did not give you some that night,
  • 00:23:43.040 --> 00:23:45.100
  • or whatever the case may be,
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:47.220
  • you gotta hang in there, champ.
  • 00:23:47.220 --> 00:23:50.000
  • You can't wait 'til the battle's over,
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:23:53.190
  • you gotta shout in the process
  • 00:23:53.190 --> 00:23:56.080
  • to receive the promise.
  • 00:23:56.230 --> 00:23:58.100
  • Y'all better help me here today.
  • 00:24:00.100 --> 00:24:02.090
  • (congregation claps)
  • 00:24:02.090 --> 00:24:06.050
  • This good stuff, man.
  • 00:24:10.150 --> 00:24:12.090
  • Lean over on that neighbor
  • 00:24:12.090 --> 00:24:13.140
  • you have not been leaning on and say,
  • 00:24:13.140 --> 00:24:15.120
  • "This good groceries right here."
  • 00:24:15.120 --> 00:24:16.250
  • - [Congregation] This good groceries right here.
  • 00:24:16.250 --> 00:24:18.060
  • - George, Pastor Dewayne, used...
  • 00:24:22.050 --> 00:24:23.260
  • That's why you need to come to bible study.
  • 00:24:23.260 --> 00:24:25.230
  • Pastor DeWayne used an awesome analogy this week
  • 00:24:25.230 --> 00:24:29.290
  • He say he went on vacation
  • 00:24:29.290 --> 00:24:31.220
  • and he's in Florida right now,
  • 00:24:32.270 --> 00:24:34.090
  • he said he was preaching but...
  • 00:24:34.090 --> 00:24:35.130
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:24:36.060 --> 00:24:39.100
  • Quite convenient to have a preaching engagement
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:41.060
  • this time of the year where you can go to Florida.
  • 00:24:41.060 --> 00:24:45.060
  • We need to hook them lie-detector tests
  • 00:24:49.160 --> 00:24:51.150
  • up to some of these saints.
  • 00:24:51.150 --> 00:24:53.170
  • And so he said like many times before
  • 00:24:56.240 --> 00:25:01.010
  • while he was perplan...
  • 00:25:01.010 --> 00:25:03.100
  • Perplanning (chuckles), that's planning
  • 00:25:03.100 --> 00:25:06.230
  • and preparing put together.
  • 00:25:06.230 --> 00:25:09.170
  • While he was perplanning to go on vacation,
  • 00:25:09.170 --> 00:25:13.240
  • he started to think about certain things he needed
  • 00:25:14.130 --> 00:25:16.220
  • to do around the house
  • 00:25:16.220 --> 00:25:17.270
  • so he got this brilliant idea to turn off
  • 00:25:17.270 --> 00:25:20.200
  • the AC units and everything
  • 00:25:20.200 --> 00:25:22.120
  • while he was away
  • 00:25:22.120 --> 00:25:23.260
  • because if I'm not gonna be here
  • 00:25:23.260 --> 00:25:25.090
  • then that's a way I can save a little money
  • 00:25:25.090 --> 00:25:27.050
  • by being away and the air doesn't have to be on.
  • 00:25:28.050 --> 00:25:30.130
  • He said he didn't think about coming home
  • 00:25:30.130 --> 00:25:32.250
  • how hot the house would be
  • 00:25:32.250 --> 00:25:35.050
  • so when he walked into the house
  • 00:25:35.050 --> 00:25:37.110
  • when he got back from vacation,
  • 00:25:37.110 --> 00:25:39.060
  • it was like 92 degrees in the house.
  • 00:25:39.060 --> 00:25:42.110
  • "It was like walking into an oven", he said.
  • 00:25:42.110 --> 00:25:45.170
  • And so he said when he got in
  • 00:25:45.170 --> 00:25:47.030
  • he went directly to the thermostat
  • 00:25:47.030 --> 00:25:50.200
  • and set the thermostat down to 65.
  • 00:25:50.200 --> 00:25:53.240
  • He said once he set it,
  • 00:25:53.240 --> 00:25:55.010
  • he made sure it was on cool
  • 00:25:55.010 --> 00:25:56.210
  • and then he walked away from it,
  • 00:25:56.210 --> 00:25:58.100
  • went into his family room and sat down
  • 00:25:58.100 --> 00:26:00.180
  • and never once thought about that air
  • 00:26:00.180 --> 00:26:04.150
  • not coming through those vents
  • 00:26:04.150 --> 00:26:06.070
  • and pushing the hot air out with the cool air.
  • 00:26:06.070 --> 00:26:09.250
  • He say, "Isn't it funny how we can say things
  • 00:26:09.250 --> 00:26:13.150
  • "based upon the word of God,
  • 00:26:13.290 --> 00:26:15.220
  • "set some things and we will wonder
  • 00:26:15.220 --> 00:26:18.170
  • "if in fact this thing is gonna come to pass
  • 00:26:18.170 --> 00:26:21.070
  • "when you can go to your thermostat,
  • 00:26:21.070 --> 00:26:23.080
  • "set it on 65, go away from that thermostat,
  • 00:26:23.080 --> 00:26:26.180
  • "just sit down and rest,
  • 00:26:26.180 --> 00:26:27.290
  • "and never think about once."
