  • The faith is going to grab hold --
  • 00:00:01.290 --> 00:00:03.060
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:00:03.060 --> 00:00:04.190
  • - And is going to connect and going to be healed.
  • 00:00:04.190 --> 00:00:06.230
  • This was just a pivot in the turn of a ministry.
  • 00:00:06.230 --> 00:00:11.230
  • When I came here, I saw,
  • 00:00:12.280 --> 00:00:13.280
  • "The Year of Realized Dream."
  • 00:00:13.280 --> 00:00:15.080
  • How apropos.
  • 00:00:15.080 --> 00:00:17.030
  • How apropos.
  • 00:00:17.030 --> 00:00:18.130
  • And your ministry of faith,
  • 00:00:18.130 --> 00:00:21.190
  • you are an example and you are the first fruit
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:24.110
  • of this ministry.
  • 00:00:24.110 --> 00:00:25.120
  • - [Congregation] Yeah!
  • 00:00:25.120 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • And I said, "On who's chart?"
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:02.210
  • I mean, there was a righteous indignation...
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:05.020
  • How can you be depressed and a Christian?
  • 00:01:05.250 --> 00:01:07.280
  • Now, don't get into condemnation, because if you are now
  • 00:01:11.030 --> 00:01:14.250
  • popping antidepressant medication, you do what you gotta do.
  • 00:01:14.250 --> 00:01:18.250
  • But you stick around here, you're gonna
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:20.190
  • be off that medication by the end of this year.
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:23.230
  • (audience clapping)
  • 00:01:23.290 --> 00:01:24.140
  • My wife is not that old.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:27.110
  • Y'all look like, "Expect a what?"
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:29.220
  • (laughs)
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:32.110
  • Oh, Jesus.
  • 00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:38.140
  • That was hilarious.
  • 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:41.220
  • One of my doctors that you met on yesterday,
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:47.190
  • that's why we're running late.
  • 00:01:47.190 --> 00:01:49.200
  • Things.
  • 00:01:49.220 --> 00:01:50.290
  • Man, people showed up at the 8 o'clock service.
  • 00:01:50.290 --> 00:01:53.090
  • It was just a good time, man.
  • 00:01:53.090 --> 00:01:55.220
  • This man flat right out preached this morning.
  • 00:01:56.130 --> 00:01:59.020
  • Lord Jesus.
  • 00:02:00.120 --> 00:02:02.010
  • And then when I began to speak about this
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:08.260
  • announcement this morning, I noticed that
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:14.090
  • the apparent resistance that I felt
  • 00:02:15.040 --> 00:02:19.160
  • or assumed that I have felt on yesterday,
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:24.270
  • I didn't feel it at all this morning at the 8 AM service.
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:30.290
  • And maybe that's just because everyone didn't come.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:35.000
  • I don't know.
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:36.240
  • But prayerfully, it's getting progressively better
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:42.070
  • as I have to make this announcement
  • 00:02:42.070 --> 00:02:45.060
  • throughout every service today.
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.200
  • And this announcement is going to help
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:54.250
  • define for you whether or not
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:58.030
  • you're a real partner of this church.
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:03:00.220
  • And it's nothing bad.
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:06.010
  • But it's something that I need
  • 00:03:06.190 --> 00:03:08.150
  • your participation and cooperation in.
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:12.070
  • How many of y'all know I'm believing
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:17.190
  • God for one facility?
  • 00:03:17.190 --> 00:03:20.130
  • You know that.
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:23.070
  • Okay.
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:25.010
  • I want to be one church in one location.
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:27.060
  • I'm still assigned to Woodbridge, and I know that.
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:34.140
  • But I need to secure this one facility.
  • 00:03:35.250 --> 00:03:40.100
  • So you're going to potentially begin to hear
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:47.020
  • that these locations are for sale.
  • 00:03:47.040 --> 00:03:50.130
  • You're going to hear that.
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:53.140
  • Possibly.
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:54.260
  • However, I don't know where we're going.
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:04:00.210
  • So I'm putting them up for sale,
  • 00:04:02.130 --> 00:04:04.280
  • but I don't have a place to go.
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:07.010
  • (audience murmuring)
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:10.160
  • Okay, okay, okay.
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:12.150
  • Okay, it's getting better in here.
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.210
  • For some of y'all.
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:16.170
  • Some of y'all looking like, "Where we going?"
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:18.020
  • (laughs)
  • 00:04:18.040 --> 00:04:20.090
  • I don't know.
  • 00:04:20.090 --> 00:04:22.010
  • The Lord just told me to prepare to move.
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:26.280
  • (audience claps and cheers)
  • 00:04:27.110 --> 00:04:31.220
  • Wow.
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:38.130
  • I receive.
  • 00:04:39.010 --> 00:04:40.200
  • Oh wow.
  • 00:04:43.080 --> 00:04:44.150
  • You guys don't know how you're making me feel.
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:46.160
  • Because I made this same move
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:50.110
  • and announcement at Anakassi High School.
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:53.270
  • And people showed me their displeasure
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:57.240
  • with what I was doing with their feet.
  • 00:04:57.260 --> 00:05:02.060
  • They left.
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.090
  • They thought that I was a little to aggressive.
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:08.270
  • And some said, "Pastor just need to crawl before we walk."
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:14.140
  • And actually, in some cultures, that is an insult.
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:19.180
  • 'Cause they don't put their babies on the floor.
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:22.260
  • And their babies never crawl.
  • 00:05:24.190 --> 00:05:26.090
  • Their babies start walking.
  • 00:05:27.000 --> 00:05:29.150
  • This just happens to be a church
  • 00:05:29.170 --> 00:05:30.210
  • where we just start walking.
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:32.150
  • (audience claps and cheers)
  • 00:05:32.150 --> 00:05:36.010
  • Everybody should go to this church!
  • 00:05:36.010 --> 00:05:38.020
  • Everybody should go to this church.
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:41.090
  • I mean...
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:43.040
  • Whoo!
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.230
  • Y'all make me feel...
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:45.270
  • And Leo, I receive that word that
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:47.290
  • you sent me on yesterday.
  • 00:05:47.290 --> 00:05:49.150
  • Matter of fact, I read it.
  • 00:05:49.150 --> 00:05:51.080
  • Give me my phone.
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:52.280
  • Find my phone.
  • 00:05:52.280 --> 00:05:54.260
  • So I don't know where we're going.
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:05:57.000
  • But we have multi-million dollar properties.
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:02.030
  • And I know God is up to something real big.
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:09.090
  • But here's what you need to hear
  • 00:06:11.040 --> 00:06:12.250
  • in addition to what I just said.
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:15.070
  • You personally need to prepare to move.
  • 00:06:17.070 --> 00:06:21.200
  • (audience claps and cheers)
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:26.130
  • Receive that.
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:28.030
  • Whatever that is.
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:32.110
  • Your house.
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:33.290
  • Some of you single ladies.
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.260
  • I'm just telling you.
  • 00:06:37.120 --> 00:06:39.020
  • I'm telling you this is the year to realize dreams.
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:41.270
  • I have been confessing for years
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:45.160
  • that you're gonna live in houses
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:48.170
  • that you will not have to pay for.
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.200
  • (audience claps and cheers)
  • 00:06:51.080 --> 00:06:55.090
  • Now a lot of this is contingent
  • 00:06:57.020 --> 00:06:58.200
  • upon how you choose to believe your God.
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:01.170
  • And trust is going to be a big factor
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:04.220
  • in all of what we are confessing.
  • 00:07:04.220 --> 00:07:06.260
  • Trust God.
  • 00:07:07.140 --> 00:07:08.100
  • Say, "I trust God."
  • 00:07:08.100 --> 00:07:09.090
  • - [Audience] I trust God.
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:10.040
  • - Say, "I love."
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:11.020
  • - [Audience] I love.
  • 00:07:11.020 --> 00:07:12.040
  • - Say, "I love."
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:12.280
  • - [Audience] I love.
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:13.200
  • - And trust.
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:14.150
  • - [Audience] And trust.
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:15.110
  • - God.
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:16.110
  • - [Audience] God.
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:18.020
  • - I made this comment on last week
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:22.250
  • in our time of being with one another
  • 00:07:23.100 --> 00:07:26.060
  • that the tithe is in part the reason
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:30.140
  • why I'm alive today.
  • 00:07:30.140 --> 00:07:32.180
  • And a lot of people really didn't get
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:36.290
  • and comprehend what I was trying to share and minister.
  • 00:07:37.070 --> 00:07:42.070
  • But the tithe has given me a practice of trusting God
  • 00:07:44.110 --> 00:07:49.110
  • because the tithes really have had,
  • 00:07:50.290 --> 00:07:54.170
  • from the beginning, nothing to do with money.
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:59.010
  • You hear what I'm saying, brother Ron?
  • 00:08:02.050 --> 00:08:04.150
  • What was that you said?
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:05.200
  • And the consistency of tithing has
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:10.100
  • allowed me to know that I trust him.
  • 00:08:10.160 --> 00:08:13.280
  • And the Lord told me.
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:18.140
  • He said, "It would have been difficult
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:20.250
  • "for you to trust me for your life
  • 00:08:20.250 --> 00:08:23.190
  • "when you couldn't trust me with
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:25.140
  • "a dime out of every dollar."
  • 00:08:25.140 --> 00:08:27.200
  • God is so awesome, isn't he?
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.230
  • So this what Leo said to me.
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:36.240
  • That's why I have my number blocked these days.
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:39.260
  • 'Cause before I called people and they see
  • 00:08:41.200 --> 00:08:43.150
  • it's my number, then they store it away.
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:45.220
  • And then they think they can text me anytime they...
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:48.040
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:51.210
  • "Sir," he said.
  • 00:08:53.000 --> 00:08:54.040
  • "As I was in prayer today I received
  • 00:08:54.040 --> 00:08:55.210
  • "this revelation of your life mimicking
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:58.150
  • "the life and faith of Jesus.
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:01.000
  • "The enemy thought he...
  • 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:03.160
  • "The enemy thought you were defeated.
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:06.100
  • "You've been raised up by God and restored
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:10.080
  • "to give hope on a level that you've not yet touched.
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:14.030
  • "And that this ministry has not yet touched.
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:19.060
  • "Just as the resurrection of Christ
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:21.270
  • "manifested a new level of hope."
  • 00:09:21.270 --> 00:09:24.040
  • And it did.
  • 00:09:24.040 --> 00:09:25.230
  • Because when the angels said to Mary
  • 00:09:26.130 --> 00:09:29.120
  • and Martha, who were standing there,
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:31.200
  • "He is not here.
  • 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:33.140
  • "For he has risen."
  • 00:09:33.260 --> 00:09:35.180
  • Just like he said he would.
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:38.230
  • Lord, he said he would do it!
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:44.120
  • And they left there running, man.
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:49.090
  • They ran back in town and said he's alive.
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:52.280
  • It presented a new level of hope.
  • 00:09:53.140 --> 00:09:55.210
  • My being raised from this death, has,
  • 00:09:56.090 --> 00:10:00.250
  • and I've hoped you've received it,
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:03.270
  • as another level of hope for you.
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:07.060
  • See, Doc, Doc, this is what you see.
  • 00:10:08.110 --> 00:10:10.030
  • Come on down and join me, Doc.
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:11.140
  • Give me another chair.
  • 00:10:11.140 --> 00:10:13.000
  • This is...I'm indebted to this man.
  • 00:10:13.000 --> 00:10:15.140
  • This is the man who is in part
  • 00:10:16.100 --> 00:10:17.280
  • responsible for my being here today.
  • 00:10:17.280 --> 00:10:20.090
  • This is Dr. Victor Grazette.
  • 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:22.260
  • (applause)
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:27.100
  • Have a seat.
  • 00:10:27.100 --> 00:10:28.260
  • Y'all thank God for him just a little more than that.
  • 00:10:35.040 --> 00:10:38.140
  • (cheering and applause)
  • 00:10:38.170 --> 00:10:42.240
  • You may be seated.
  • 00:10:45.020 --> 00:10:46.090
  • Thank you so very much.
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:47.200
  • Have a seat, Doc.
  • 00:10:47.200 --> 00:10:49.040
  • No, take my seat.
  • 00:10:49.040 --> 00:10:50.010
  • That's Dr.Dee Dee's seat.
  • 00:10:50.010 --> 00:10:51.140
  • I don't want you sitting anywhere near anything...
  • 00:10:51.160 --> 00:10:53.220
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:10:53.240 --> 00:10:56.250
  • I mean, he has this voice that's so...
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:59.090
  • And I can see him now.
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:03.260
  • "Hello Dee Dee."
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:05.180
  • I'm just having fun y'all.
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.180
  • "Just as the resurrection of Christ
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:16.270
  • "manifested a new level of hope,
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:19.080
  • "you are now about to be seated
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:21.070
  • "in a new place of authority
  • 00:11:21.070 --> 00:11:23.250
  • "that will enable you to advance the Kingdom of God.
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:27.230
  • "You continue to fight the fight of faith
  • 00:11:28.230 --> 00:11:31.270
  • "and God has blessed you with an extra portion
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:36.010
  • "of anointing as his grace has pushed
  • 00:11:36.240 --> 00:11:39.190
  • "you into a permanent position of favor."
  • 00:11:39.190 --> 00:11:43.040
  • I decree that you enjoy that permanent position of favor.
  • 00:11:43.040 --> 00:11:46.210
  • "That will miraculously manifest your dreams
  • 00:11:49.010 --> 00:11:52.020
  • "on an unimaginable level."
  • 00:11:52.210 --> 00:11:55.250
  • I receive that.
  • 00:11:58.080 --> 00:11:59.230
  • And so when over for all of these things
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:03.200
  • that I'm discussing with you, Brother Warren,
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:05.240
  • to be manifested in your life,
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:08.060
  • there has to be an element of trust
  • 00:12:08.060 --> 00:12:10.080
  • that you are consistently exhibiting.
  • 00:12:10.130 --> 00:12:15.130
  • Consistently exhibiting.
  • 00:12:16.110 --> 00:12:18.020
  • You have to have this level of trust in God.
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:21.160
  • The tithe has given me.
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:24.150
  • And people talk down the tithe.
  • 00:12:24.150 --> 00:12:26.040
  • And you hear it all the time.
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:27.160
  • "Man, all them preachers want is your money.
  • 00:12:27.160 --> 00:12:29.250
  • "I'm tired of that money thing.
  • 00:12:29.250 --> 00:12:30.290
  • "All they want is your money."
  • 00:12:30.290 --> 00:12:32.190
  • How many of y'all heard that?
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:33.160
  • "They want your money."
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:34.210
  • I said, how many of y'all heard that?
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:36.140
  • Turn to your neighbor.
  • 00:12:36.140 --> 00:12:37.080
  • Say, "Get your hand up."
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:38.020
  • You heard that before.
  • 00:12:38.020 --> 00:12:40.030
  • (audience laughing)
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:42.030
  • And there's an element of truth in that.
  • 00:12:45.150 --> 00:12:47.210
  • Because a preacher should want your money.
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:50.210
  • But that shouldn't be all they want.
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:53.150
  • Because if I don't teach you concerning this level,
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:57.210
  • it is a miscarriage of my pastoral duty.
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:13:01.100
  • It's my duty.
  • 00:13:02.290 --> 00:13:04.200
  • I started off with saying, "You know what, God?"
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:07.220
  • Anybody ever made a deal with God?
  • 00:13:07.260 --> 00:13:09.260
  • - [Audience] Yes.
  • 00:13:10.040 --> 00:13:11.100
  • - Come on, you've made a deal with God.
  • 00:13:11.100 --> 00:13:12.170
  • God if you heal my body, I'll serve you.
  • 00:13:12.170 --> 00:13:15.280
  • You ever been so drunk or high you say,
  • 00:13:18.120 --> 00:13:20.060
  • "God, if you just let me come down."
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:22.180
  • I know some of y'all...
  • 00:13:23.050 --> 00:13:23.270
  • (laughs)
  • 00:13:23.270 --> 00:13:25.100
  • That my people right there.
  • 00:13:25.100 --> 00:13:27.080
  • That girl said, "Yeah!"
  • 00:13:27.080 --> 00:13:29.020
  • Man, I didn't know my way home one night.
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:33.210
  • And when I woke up in the car that next morning,
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:38.040
  • it was a miracle that I can't
  • 00:13:38.190 --> 00:13:40.220
  • even remember getting home.
  • 00:13:40.220 --> 00:13:42.260
  • I didn't even get in the house.
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:45.220
  • I just...I woke up and I was in the front of my house.
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:48.160
  • I have no idea how I drove home.
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.290
  • That's high.
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:53.090
  • Okay, don't look at me like that.
  • 00:13:54.290 --> 00:13:56.050
  • You ain't been saved all your life.
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:58.100
  • Some of y'all look at me be like, "That's a shame."
  • 00:13:58.100 --> 00:14:01.160
  • It is.
  • 00:14:02.060 --> 00:14:03.070
  • It is a shame.
  • 00:14:03.070 --> 00:14:04.220
  • But that was a long time ago.
  • 00:14:05.100 --> 00:14:07.140
  • I receive.
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:10.190
  • And I told God if I Pastor,
  • 00:14:11.020 --> 00:14:14.290
  • I'm not letting them people pay me.
  • 00:14:15.110 --> 00:14:17.150
  • 'Cause I watched a man grab my father up like this.
  • 00:14:17.190 --> 00:14:20.150
  • A trustee of the church.
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:22.140
  • He was a pastor.
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.210
  • And the trustee grabbed my father like that.
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:26.120
  • Thank you.
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:27.240
  • I...apologize.
  • 00:14:27.240 --> 00:14:30.250
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:14:30.270 --> 00:14:33.050
  • And I said, "Hit 'em, Daddy!
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:36.290
  • "Hit 'em!"
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:38.140
  • And I was crying
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:39.130
  • It was so impressionable.
  • 00:14:39.130 --> 00:14:41.080
  • It made an indelible impression upon my life.
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:43.280
  • I can remember it so vividly.
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:46.060
  • 'Cause I hated...
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:49.070
  • seeing this man put his hands on my father.
  • 00:14:53.150 --> 00:14:56.120
  • And my father wouldn't do anything.
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:14:58.270
  • And it didn't make a good impression for me.
  • 00:14:58.270 --> 00:15:01.200
  • And I need some counseling or something.
  • 00:15:02.050 --> 00:15:04.170
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:15:04.210 --> 00:15:07.050
  • Every time.
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:12.010
  • Here, buy your brother something too, alright?
  • 00:15:15.140 --> 00:15:18.000
  • And my father wouldn't do a thing.
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.070
  • He just stood there.
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:26.240
  • And I told God, 'cause I've never forgotten.
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:29.000
  • You can you see how fresh it is in my heart today.
  • 00:15:29.000 --> 00:15:32.020
  • And I told God, "I'll do what you've asked me to do,
  • 00:15:33.170 --> 00:15:36.210
  • "but these people will not pay me.
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:39.090
  • "These people will not pay me."
  • 00:15:39.110 --> 00:15:41.150
  • And I worked in this ministry for three and a half
  • 00:15:41.240 --> 00:15:43.180
  • years and didn't receive a dime from you all.
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:47.060
  • And the Lord rebuked me, and I found out
  • 00:15:47.220 --> 00:15:50.100
  • that I was making you an inferior people
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:52.260
  • because I was not receiving from you the offering.
  • 00:15:54.020 --> 00:15:57.250
  • And I said, "How is that so?"
  • 00:16:00.050 --> 00:16:01.220
  • And then he said, "Look at II Corinthians
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:03.260
  • "Chapter number 12."
  • 00:16:03.260 --> 00:16:05.200
  • No, you don't have to do it right now.
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:07.130
  • But do it later so you can be informed.
  • 00:16:07.130 --> 00:16:09.260
  • Because deception is at an all time high.
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:14.080
  • Oprah just featured this guy Rob Bell
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:18.010
  • who was a former mega church pastor who said
  • 00:16:18.040 --> 00:16:22.070
  • there is this zig zoom effect that happens,
  • 00:16:22.070 --> 00:16:25.020
  • an energy that happens between a husband and wife.
  • 00:16:25.070 --> 00:16:28.210
  • But it doesn't have to be male and female.
  • 00:16:28.230 --> 00:16:30.260
  • It can be male and male, and female and female.
  • 00:16:31.140 --> 00:16:34.260
  • And every church who is not marrying
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:37.230
  • same sex will become irrelevant.
  • 00:16:37.230 --> 00:16:40.030
  • Not this church.
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:43.270
  • I said not this church.
  • 00:16:44.230 --> 00:16:46.180
  • Deception is at an all time high.
  • 00:16:48.270 --> 00:16:51.070
  • I'm amazed of partners that I encounter.
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:55.020
  • Even those who were members of this church
  • 00:16:55.170 --> 00:16:57.200
  • once a time, the deception that they walk in nowadays.
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:17:01.050
  • People who once believed one thing,
  • 00:17:04.080 --> 00:17:05.190
  • "I don't believe that anymore."
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:07.160
  • And it will get worse, ladies and gentlemen.
  • 00:17:08.280 --> 00:17:12.090
  • But say, "I love and trust God."
  • 00:17:13.040 --> 00:17:15.040
  • - [Audience] I love and trust God.
  • 00:17:15.040 --> 00:17:17.010
  • - He said those who trust him...
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:19.110
  • Proverbs 28 and 25 or 26.
  • 00:17:19.110 --> 00:17:22.080
  • He said, "Those who trust me will prosper."
  • 00:17:22.140 --> 00:17:25.010
  • There is a level of equality with trust and prosperity.
  • 00:17:25.160 --> 00:17:30.140
  • When you trust him, you prosper.
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:38.030
  • But then he gives us the tithe to demonstrate that.
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:40.240
  • Isn't God wonderful?
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:44.180
  • So I want to resume from where we were.
  • 00:17:46.060 --> 00:17:50.270
  • And I'm not gonna spend much time
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.190
  • talking about what I just talked about.
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:54.210
  • This is a brilliant man.
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:02.140
  • Just brilliant in my estimation.
  • 00:18:03.230 --> 00:18:06.060
  • When I first met him...
  • 00:18:06.060 --> 00:18:08.120
  • He can be somewhat intimidating
  • 00:18:11.280 --> 00:18:15.070
  • because of his brilliance.
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:18.100
  • But it's very difficult to intimidate
  • 00:18:24.160 --> 00:18:27.200
  • somebody who knows who they are and whose they are.
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:31.260
  • And I don't care where you are on any academic level,
  • 00:18:32.190 --> 00:18:37.120
  • the anointing levels the playing field.
  • 00:18:38.050 --> 00:18:40.240
  • And God will make you a lot smarter
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:47.040
  • than you are if you'll listen to him.
  • 00:18:47.040 --> 00:18:49.260
  • I'm amazed at some of the stuff that Dr. Dee Dee
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:54.190
  • will come up with in our discussion,
  • 00:18:54.190 --> 00:18:56.290
  • 'cause I know she's not that smart.
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:18:59.070
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:02.010
  • And then she'll give God all the glory.
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:07.100
  • She'll say, "Oh man, that was the Holy Ghost."
  • 00:19:07.100 --> 00:19:08.180
  • I'll say, "You ain't gotta tell me."
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:10.160
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:12.270
  • He is the...what, Doc?
  • 00:19:17.250 --> 00:19:22.130
  • And who of...
  • 00:19:22.150 --> 00:19:24.090
  • - Corporate Director for Cardiology--
  • 00:19:25.010 --> 00:19:27.150
  • - See, and I can't even stand his voice.
  • 00:19:27.150 --> 00:19:29.170
  • (laughing)
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:31.230
  • He is the corporate--
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:34.060
  • - Corporate Director for Cardiology Services,
  • 00:19:34.060 --> 00:19:36.110
  • Pulmonary, Sleep Medicine, Cardiovascular Surgery
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:39.260
  • and some Outpatient Diagnostic services
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:43.280
  • in the Dimension Healthcare System.
  • 00:19:43.280 --> 00:19:46.140
  • Specifically, my office is at Laurel Regional Hospital.
  • 00:19:46.140 --> 00:19:49.160
  • - That's a mouthful.
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:52.290
  • Yeah, that's a resume there, boy.
  • 00:19:55.010 --> 00:19:57.010
  • And you said on last week when you first met me.
  • 00:19:59.050 --> 00:20:04.050
  • It was funny because that's when I felt
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:08.020
  • at my lowest when we met.
  • 00:20:08.080 --> 00:20:11.140
  • And I was tempted to be in depression.
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:15.090
  • And I discovered from him on yesterday or Friday
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:20.110
  • that this thing that I've gone through,
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:24.200
  • it's inevitably associated or connected to depression.
  • 00:20:25.070 --> 00:20:29.080
  • Matter of fact, Camilla here was the one
  • 00:20:29.230 --> 00:20:32.290
  • who brought to my attention that the doctors
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:36.050
  • noted from Washington hospital saying that I was depressed.
  • 00:20:36.050 --> 00:20:39.280
  • She didn't deal with it.
  • 00:20:43.010 --> 00:20:45.230
  • It's interesting how your approach
  • 00:20:45.250 --> 00:20:48.240
  • to my case was so abnormal.
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:52.240
  • It was different than me because
  • 00:20:52.260 --> 00:20:55.170
  • when she said, "Why is depression on your chart?"
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:59.020
  • And I said, "On who's chart?"
  • 00:21:00.140 --> 00:21:02.140
  • I mean, there was a righteous indignation...
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:04.250
  • How can you be depressed and a Christian?
  • 00:21:05.180 --> 00:21:07.210
  • Now, don't get into condemnation, because if you are now
  • 00:21:10.260 --> 00:21:14.180
  • popping antidepressant medication, you do what you gotta do.
  • 00:21:14.180 --> 00:21:18.180
  • But you stick around here, you're gonna
  • 00:21:18.210 --> 00:21:20.120
  • be off that medication by the end of this year.
  • 00:21:20.120 --> 00:21:23.160
  • (audience clapping)
  • 00:21:23.220 --> 00:21:25.280
  • I'm gonna teach you how to be happy.
  • 00:21:27.080 --> 00:21:29.100
  • It's gonna come up out of your spirit.
  • 00:21:34.050 --> 00:21:35.280
  • And I said, "What are you talking about?"
  • 00:21:38.090 --> 00:21:40.020
  • She said, "It's listed here from your doctor."
  • 00:21:40.020 --> 00:21:43.000
  • She said, "I didn't want to tell you
  • 00:21:43.250 --> 00:21:45.020
  • "because I know who you are.
  • 00:21:45.020 --> 00:21:46.260
  • "But, why is this depression here?"
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.080
  • And I said, "Get the doctor on the phone, De Dee!"
  • 00:21:50.020 --> 00:21:52.240
  • But they had to put that because there are
  • 00:21:54.270 --> 00:21:58.040
  • certain associated symptoms and terms.
  • 00:21:58.040 --> 00:22:01.000
  • Talk to me, Doc.
  • 00:22:02.050 --> 00:22:02.290
  • You're the Doctor.
  • 00:22:02.290 --> 00:22:04.140
  • - He had what we call Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome,
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:07.190
  • as I think I said that last week.
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:10.140
  • Associated with Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome
  • 00:22:10.180 --> 00:22:15.010
  • for patients who recover, if they recover,
  • 00:22:15.040 --> 00:22:18.130
  • it's depression.
  • 00:22:18.130 --> 00:22:20.040
  • I call it, "the spirit of depression dwells
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:24.180
  • "at the bedside of the patients that (mumbles).
  • 00:22:24.180 --> 00:22:26.240
  • - I'm telling you that is the God honest truth.
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:29.260
  • I'm telling you.
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:31.130
  • Depression, if not every day, every other day,
  • 00:22:31.130 --> 00:22:35.240
  • visited my bedside.
  • 00:22:35.240 --> 00:22:37.150
  • - And--
  • 00:22:38.020 --> 00:22:39.210
  • - And I had no clue that it was
  • 00:22:39.230 --> 00:22:41.050
  • associated to what I went through.
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:42.230
  • - Right, it is.
  • 00:22:42.230 --> 00:22:44.140
  • And associated with the disease also is,
  • 00:22:44.230 --> 00:22:48.210
  • you suffer a cognitive deficit, physical deficit.
  • 00:22:48.270 --> 00:22:53.270
  • We are not even talking at the level of where he was.
  • 00:22:57.060 --> 00:22:59.230
  • - [Dr. Freeman] Talk about those levels,
  • 00:22:59.230 --> 00:23:00.250
  • because we didn't last week.
  • 00:23:00.250 --> 00:23:02.280
  • - So, we talked about the oxygen index
  • 00:23:03.160 --> 00:23:05.210
  • last time very briefly.
  • 00:23:05.210 --> 00:23:07.180
  • It is a number that you use to estimate
  • 00:23:07.210 --> 00:23:10.260
  • the mortality rate of a patient.
  • 00:23:10.260 --> 00:23:13.060
  • An oxygen index of anywhere from 25 to 30
  • 00:23:15.150 --> 00:23:18.200
  • is considered high, but normal.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:21.270
  • The expected recovery is imminent.
  • 00:23:22.000 --> 00:23:25.240
  • An oxygen index of 40 or greater, death is imminent.
  • 00:23:26.150 --> 00:23:31.040
  • An oxygen index of greater than 40,
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:34.080
  • the mortality rate is very high.
  • 00:23:35.090 --> 00:23:37.160
  • And his oxygen index was not even anywhere near 40.
  • 00:23:38.020 --> 00:23:41.110
  • It was 62.75, approximately.
  • 00:23:41.290 --> 00:23:44.240
  • That is...I'm not sure if there are any
  • 00:23:45.070 --> 00:23:47.130
  • nurses or physicians here in the audience.
  • 00:23:47.130 --> 00:23:50.200
  • But someone with an oxygen index
  • 00:23:51.050 --> 00:23:53.140
  • of 62 will not live.
  • 00:23:53.140 --> 00:23:55.240
  • Will not live.
  • 00:23:56.260 --> 00:23:58.290
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:23:59.160 --> 00:24:01.150
  • And if they do live, it's not necessarily
  • 00:24:01.150 --> 00:24:03.220
  • what you call a life.
  • 00:24:03.220 --> 00:24:05.190
  • It is an organism on a bed.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:07.280
  • And so, the severity...
  • 00:24:08.190 --> 00:24:10.270
  • What is amazing, what is testimonial,
  • 00:24:10.270 --> 00:24:14.040
  • what is praiseworthy, is what you see here today.
  • 00:24:14.200 --> 00:24:18.120
  • Is what you see before you.
  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:21.230
  • And you know, earlier we talked about
  • 00:24:21.230 --> 00:24:25.280
  • this is...and you said it earlier just now here,
  • 00:24:26.140 --> 00:24:30.180
  • to give hope.
  • 00:24:31.070 --> 00:24:32.260
  • This is a ministry that was built
  • 00:24:33.060 --> 00:24:36.230
  • by these two people on faith.
  • 00:24:36.230 --> 00:24:38.150
  • A ministry of faith.
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:40.280
  • And it is the infrastructure of this ministry.
  • 00:24:42.070 --> 00:24:45.010
  • Is it not though?
  • 00:24:45.040 --> 00:24:46.170
  • It is.
  • 00:24:46.190 --> 00:24:47.240
  • It is the infrastructure of this ministry.
  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:49.060
  • And the enemy attacked that very infrastructure.
  • 00:24:49.280 --> 00:24:53.190
  • - Wow.
  • 00:24:53.270 --> 00:24:55.060
  • - To destroy it.
  • 00:24:55.110 --> 00:24:56.250
  • Because if he could have destroyed
  • 00:24:56.280 --> 00:24:58.100
  • the very infrastructure of the ministry,
  • 00:24:58.100 --> 00:25:00.130
  • he would have shaken everybody.
  • 00:25:00.190 --> 00:25:02.160
  • Because I know some of you...
  • 00:25:04.000 --> 00:25:06.290
  • I wasn't here at this time (mumbling)
  • 00:25:07.010 --> 00:25:09.120
  • because I wasn't here at the time.
  • 00:25:09.120 --> 00:25:11.070
  • But some of you were looking...
  • 00:25:11.090 --> 00:25:13.210
  • looking and standing to see what the outcome would be.
  • 00:25:13.210 --> 00:25:16.130
  • Some of you were praying.
  • 00:25:16.160 --> 00:25:18.060
  • And some of you were looking to see what the outcome was.
  • 00:25:18.080 --> 00:25:20.130
  • You know.
  • 00:25:21.180 --> 00:25:23.010
  • - [Dr.Freemanl] Tell the truth!
  • 00:25:23.120 --> 00:25:25.060
  • Because I know.
  • 00:25:25.060 --> 00:25:26.190
  • I know everybody who said they were praying
  • 00:25:26.190 --> 00:25:30.160
  • for me were not for me.
  • 00:25:30.160 --> 00:25:32.160
  • There are some cats who really hated
  • 00:25:34.200 --> 00:25:38.200
  • to know that Mike Freeman got out of this situation.
  • 00:25:38.200 --> 00:25:41.250
  • I already know that.
  • 00:25:42.290 --> 00:25:44.220
  • - And the think about this RDS...
  • 00:25:44.240 --> 00:25:46.180
  • When you think about it, usually the patient
  • 00:25:46.180 --> 00:25:48.150
  • with the RDS...already in the hospital
  • 00:25:48.150 --> 00:25:52.010
  • or is following a major accident or trauma.
  • 00:25:53.070 --> 00:25:57.080
  • Something you can really pinpoint.
  • 00:25:57.180 --> 00:25:59.190
  • Or they were in the hospital with
  • 00:25:59.220 --> 00:26:00.290
  • a really major sickness.
  • 00:26:00.290 --> 00:26:03.040
  • Abscess or something like that.
  • 00:26:03.190 --> 00:26:05.080
  • It is very unusual to find someone that
  • 00:26:05.080 --> 00:26:07.140
  • comes from home with that level
  • 00:26:07.140 --> 00:26:11.280
  • of Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome.
  • 00:26:11.280 --> 00:26:14.060
  • It is absolutely unusual.
  • 00:26:14.080 --> 00:26:16.010
  • At the point that he got into the hospital,
  • 00:26:16.030 --> 00:26:19.210
  • he had probably about 24 hours to live.
