  • every system that exists is gonna have to
  • 00:00:01.220 --> 00:00:02.000
  • bow its knee to the system I'm proposing to you now.
  • 00:00:02.260 --> 00:00:06.050
  • That's why you need to hand over
  • 00:00:08.140 --> 00:00:11.070
  • some of those decisions that you are making.
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:16.180
  • You need to just give them to me now
  • 00:00:16.180 --> 00:00:19.100
  • because either you fall on the rock the scripture says
  • 00:00:19.100 --> 00:00:23.010
  • or the rock will fall on you and crush you.
  • 00:00:23.010 --> 00:00:26.150
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • but you wondering why I can't get ahead.
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:04.220
  • Because you are making all your decisions.
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:08.070
  • You gotta stop.
  • 00:01:09.190 --> 00:01:11.020
  • I'm trying to pour out my heart.
  • 00:01:11.020 --> 00:01:12.240
  • I wanna help.
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:13.270
  • I'm telling you that's how I'm living the way I'm living.
  • 00:01:15.090 --> 00:01:19.020
  • I'm not this smart.
  • 00:01:20.070 --> 00:01:22.070
  • It's God's wisdom.
  • 00:01:22.070 --> 00:01:23.220
  • and something in me
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:30.100
  • I got this here spiritual suspicion.
  • 00:01:32.160 --> 00:01:35.160
  • I ain't never said that before.
  • 00:01:38.110 --> 00:01:40.280
  • That it won't be long.
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:43.240
  • It's sooner than we think.
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:47.210
  • I'm not in no hurry, really aren't
  • 00:01:48.270 --> 00:01:52.170
  • but he's coming.
  • 00:01:52.170 --> 00:01:53.270
  • Can we at least all agree?
  • 00:01:56.270 --> 00:01:59.020
  • I can't recall last time I heard a preacher preach on
  • 00:02:05.020 --> 00:02:08.190
  • excuse me, the coming of Jesus.
  • 00:02:08.190 --> 00:02:11.070
  • That Jesus is coming back.
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:12.260
  • He's coming back.
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:14.130
  • We don't hear he's coming back like we used to hear.
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:16.230
  • He's coming back.
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:18.230
  • Get your house in order.
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:20.230
  • Can I just tell you that?
  • 00:02:22.000 --> 00:02:24.160
  • Can I just decree that?
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.220
  • Can I charge you?
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:28.040
  • Get your house
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:30.080
  • because he's coming.
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:35.030
  • Okay.
  • 00:02:36.260 --> 00:02:38.100
  • The one little boy was sitting in the meeting
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:42.050
  • and the pastor was talking about Jesus coming
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:45.160
  • people jumping up and down.
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:46.270
  • He just sat there and looked at the pastor.
  • 00:02:46.270 --> 00:02:49.190
  • Looked at the pastor almost with disgust.
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:52.050
  • Pastor say, "What's wrong little fella.
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:53.240
  • "You don't wanna go to Heaven."
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:55.060
  • He said, "Yes, sir I do.
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:02:56.200
  • "But it sound like you was getting up a trip right now."
  • 00:02:56.200 --> 00:02:59.020
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:02:59.020 --> 00:03:01.160
  • Everybody wanna go to Heaven
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:04.150
  • but nobody wanna die yet.
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:06.170
  • What I'm preparing for
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:11.280
  • see I ain't interested giving my sister no money.
  • 00:03:11.280 --> 00:03:14.210
  • I'm a have an Enoch encounter.
  • 00:03:14.210 --> 00:03:16.290
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:20.190
  • I wanna be walking along
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:22.210
  • hanging with somebody and then.
  • 00:03:23.260 --> 00:03:26.140
  • What you don't wanna be is somebody who's saying,
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:29.230
  • "Where'd he go?"
  • 00:03:29.230 --> 00:03:31.100
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:34.210
  • How many of y'all going up on the first trip?
  • 00:03:44.230 --> 00:03:48.190
  • You don't wanna go on the second
  • 00:03:48.190 --> 00:03:50.240
  • and that's another lesson.
  • 00:03:50.240 --> 00:03:52.290
  • Okay, so this system
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:57.070
  • that I've been trying to discuss with you
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:02.180
  • will eventually hit.
  • 00:04:02.180 --> 00:04:04.080
  • I mean and hit hard and hit forever.
  • 00:04:05.280 --> 00:04:08.280
  • Now this Revelations
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:12.250
  • I think it's 11:10.
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:14.110
  • We'll work our way to 15.
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:16.130
  • Those who dwell on Earth will rejoice over them
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:21.010
  • make marry and send gifts to one another
  • 00:04:21.010 --> 00:04:24.220
  • because these two prophets tormented
  • 00:04:24.220 --> 00:04:27.180
  • those who dwell on Earth.
  • 00:04:27.180 --> 00:04:29.130
  • Okay, I see the account.
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:31.040
  • Now after three and a half days
  • 00:04:31.040 --> 00:04:33.160
  • the breath of life from God entered them.
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:37.000
  • There's gone be a war that's gone go on.
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:39.160
  • These are symbolic of those two systems
  • 00:04:39.160 --> 00:04:43.010
  • that you see that's gone go at it.
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:45.130
  • They stood on their feet
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.220
  • and great fear fell on those who saw them.
  • 00:04:46.220 --> 00:04:50.070
  • Watch this.
  • 00:04:50.070 --> 00:04:51.090
  • They heard a loud voice
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:53.110
  • and see this is what we're getting to.
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:55.040
  • They heard a loud voice from Heaven saying,
  • 00:04:55.040 --> 00:04:57.150
  • "Come up here", good God from Zion.
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:59.270
  • Come up hither, and they ascended to Heaven in a cloud.
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:03.270
  • Their enemies also people in another system
  • 00:05:03.270 --> 00:05:07.260
  • they saw it and heard it.
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:09.150
  • In the same hour there was a great earthquake
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:12.150
  • and a 10th of the city fell.
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:14.250
  • There's very great relevance
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:17.170
  • and significance to that 10th there
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:19.250
  • but that's not my point so I'm not gone go into that.
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:24.020
  • In the earthquake 7.000 people were what?
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:27.150
  • That's why you wanna go up on the first trip.
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:30.110
  • You don't wanna have anything to do with this.
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:32.080
  • I can't talk about that now
  • 00:05:32.080 --> 00:05:33.150
  • because this is not my subject matter.
  • 00:05:33.150 --> 00:05:36.000
  • The rest were afraid and gave glory to God of Heaven.
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:39.260
  • They were afraid.
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:40.290
  • The second woe is passed.
  • 00:05:40.290 --> 00:05:43.030
  • Behold now the third woe is coming quickly.
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:47.010
  • Watch this.
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:47.290
  • The seventh angel did sounded,
  • 00:05:47.290 --> 00:05:51.070
  • sounded, oh, my god.
  • 00:05:51.070 --> 00:05:53.000
  • Okay, okay, okay.
  • 00:05:53.000 --> 00:05:55.060
  • So how can I do this?
  • 00:05:55.060 --> 00:05:57.120
  • How can I do this?
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:58.250
  • How can I do it?
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:06:00.040
  • I heard it give me the definition of system
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:02.290
  • on this screen and hold there
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:05.210
  • that same scripture right there.
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:07.210
  • Got it.
  • 00:06:07.210 --> 00:06:08.190
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:11.040
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:06:11.040 --> 00:06:13.110
  • An interconnecting network.
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:15.030
  • Stay with me here.
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:16.070
  • Hold that on that screen
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.280
  • and let's go along with this screen.
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:19.140
  • Are you still here?
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:21.010
  • Come on this is a learning institute, man.
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:23.260
  • I wanna get you to understand some things
  • 00:06:23.260 --> 00:06:26.070
  • that's why I started with that first scripture
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:28.160
  • understanding is.
  • 00:06:28.160 --> 00:06:29.230
  • Because if you can get this you'll win in life
  • 00:06:29.230 --> 00:06:33.080
  • and this is a money back guarantee.
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:37.000
  • If you can get what I'm saying to you today
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:40.090
  • don't you dare sit there like you're disinterested
  • 00:06:40.090 --> 00:06:43.120
  • especially if your money funny.
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:45.290
  • Your marriage messed up
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:49.130
  • and you gone sit there, "I wish he'll hurry up."
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:53.030
  • You should wanna sit here until I'm finished
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:56.260
  • especially if there's any deficit in your life.
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:07:00.210
  • Okay, here we go.
  • 00:07:00.210 --> 00:07:02.190
  • There were a loud voice in Heaven saying
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:05.230
  • what did he say
  • 00:07:05.230 --> 00:07:07.170
  • "The systems
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:08.170
  • "or the kingdoms of this world have become."
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:14.000
  • They are not right now across the board
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:20.190
  • but at this point in the game they would have come.
  • 00:07:23.070 --> 00:07:28.030
  • They would have become the kingdoms of our God.
  • 00:07:28.030 --> 00:07:32.150
  • Because every system, listen to me carefully
  • 00:07:32.150 --> 00:07:35.220
  • every system that exists is gonna have to
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:39.200
  • bow its knee to the system I'm proposing to you now.
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:43.250
  • That's why you need to hand over
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:48.270
  • some of those decisions that you are making.
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:54.080
  • You need to just give them to me now
  • 00:07:54.080 --> 00:07:57.000
  • because either you fall on the rock the scripture says
  • 00:07:57.000 --> 00:08:00.230
  • or the rock will fall on you and crush you.
  • 00:08:00.230 --> 00:08:04.100
  • Either the scripture in Philippians says
  • 00:08:06.110 --> 00:08:09.000
  • every knee should bow
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:10.250
  • but Thessalonians says every knee shall bow.
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:15.210
  • Which leads me to believe that you should or you shall.
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:21.040
  • You gone do it one way or the other.
  • 00:08:23.170 --> 00:08:26.170
  • Okay, every body that's in Hell right now is a believer.
  • 00:08:27.290 --> 00:08:31.190
  • Did you hear what I just said?
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:42.120
  • Tell your neighbor what pastor just said.
  • 00:08:42.120 --> 00:08:44.130
  • - [Congregation] Every body in Hell right now is a believer.
  • 00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:48.180
  • - There ain't one person that's in Hell
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:54.230
  • that doesn't believe Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:08:54.230 --> 00:08:57.210
  • Can we go deeper if you're interested?
  • 00:08:59.050 --> 00:09:02.170
  • I'm only going with the goers.
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:07.070
  • If you ain't interested in changing your life
  • 00:09:07.070 --> 00:09:10.000
  • this may not be the church for you.
  • 00:09:10.000 --> 00:09:11.190
  • If you just wanna keep playing church
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:13.160
  • 17, 18, 19, 20/20 still don't have focus
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:17.210
  • 20/20 focus?
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:23.060
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:26.180
  • What I've decided is to take
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:31.130
  • that system on the other side of death
  • 00:09:33.060 --> 00:09:36.260
  • and move it on this side of death
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:39.210
  • so I can start cooperating with that
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:44.060
  • interconnecting network.
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:46.060
  • See because if you look now at John chapter number eight...
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:52.130
  • No, Matthew chapter number six verse 10.
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:02.130
  • Oh, boy, Jesus when he was here said,
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:14.240
  • "Your kingdom come.
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:17.090
  • "Your will be done."
  • 00:10:19.110 --> 00:10:21.060
  • Lord, an interconnecting network.
  • 00:10:23.130 --> 00:10:26.060
  • "On Earth"
  • 00:10:27.290 --> 00:10:28.240
  • an interconnecting network.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:32.260
  • So we gone have what's in Heaven.
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:37.100
  • You don't have to get to Heaven to experience it.
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:46.170
  • You can have Heaven.
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:49.040
  • I'm preaching better than.
  • 00:10:51.120 --> 00:10:54.070
  • But gonna have to relinquish your will
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:57.150
  • and what you want and the way you wanna do.
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:04.000
  • "I don't think you need to tithe."
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:06.100
  • There you go.
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:07.110
  • Now it's your way.
  • 00:11:07.110 --> 00:11:08.250
  • "I don't think you need to come to church every Sunday."
  • 00:11:08.250 --> 00:11:12.190
  • See there you go it's still your way.
  • 00:11:12.190 --> 00:11:15.070
  • "I don't think it should be
  • 00:11:15.070 --> 00:11:17.110
  • "anybody's business who marry who.
  • 00:11:17.110 --> 00:11:20.160
  • "If a man wanna marry a man,
  • 00:11:20.160 --> 00:11:22.190
  • "then let them marry them."
  • 00:11:22.190 --> 00:11:24.200
  • I should've brought that with me.
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:26.250
  • I'll bring it next week.
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:28.070
  • Don't let me forget.
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:29.250
  • Okay.
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:30.200
  • Now you are complying with another system
  • 00:11:32.250 --> 00:11:36.100
  • that's diametrically opposed to the system
  • 00:11:38.140 --> 00:11:42.030
  • that has an interconnecting network with Heaven.
  • 00:11:42.030 --> 00:11:46.050
  • You don't connect to a system that's not of Heaven,
  • 00:11:46.050 --> 00:11:50.160
  • ladies and gentlemen, and there's no in between
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:53.230
  • because if it's not Heaven, it's Hell.
  • 00:11:53.230 --> 00:11:56.280
  • If it's not love, it's hate.
  • 00:11:59.080 --> 00:12:01.200
  • If it's not a friend, it's an enemy.
  • 00:12:02.230 --> 00:12:05.230
  • Okay, now I got one other definition to show you
  • 00:12:07.060 --> 00:12:10.230
  • and then one other scripture.
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:14.030
  • May I? - Yes.
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:16.210
  • - All in favor say
  • 00:12:16.210 --> 00:12:18.110
  • - [Congregation] Aye.
  • 00:12:18.110 --> 00:12:19.180
  • - Any opposed we don't even care, okay.
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:22.260
  • Go to the next definition of the next system.
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:28.030
  • Some cultures and countries are currently
  • 00:12:42.260 --> 00:12:46.110
  • functioning in this system.
  • 00:12:48.100 --> 00:12:50.240
  • I don't particularly agree with it
  • 00:12:50.240 --> 00:12:53.220
  • because you gotta deal with evil rulership,
  • 00:12:53.220 --> 00:12:57.120
  • dictatorship, tyrants,
  • 00:12:58.170 --> 00:13:00.170
  • people who don't have the heart of God.
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:04.230
  • That's why we can't lead.
  • 00:13:04.230 --> 00:13:07.070
  • Democracy and bureaucracy is good.
  • 00:13:07.070 --> 00:13:10.060
  • Thank you for these United States of America
  • 00:13:10.060 --> 00:13:13.190
  • that will give you freedom of choice.
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:16.020
  • Because if the man over this system
  • 00:13:16.020 --> 00:13:19.090
  • decides he don't want you to pray
  • 00:13:19.090 --> 00:13:22.030
  • you're a dead man.
  • 00:13:22.030 --> 00:13:23.180
  • However,
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:27.060
  • What I just say? - However.
  • 00:13:30.070 --> 00:13:33.000
  • - This system is the system
  • 00:13:33.000 --> 00:13:35.100
  • that is talked about in Revelations
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:40.010
  • chapter number 11.
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:41.160
  • Now,
  • 00:13:42.150 --> 00:13:43.100
  • explain to them what a monarch is.
  • 00:13:44.280 --> 00:13:47.230
  • Well, monarchy, monarch same thing
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:52.220
  • a system of government which ruling power is in the hands
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:56.270
  • - [Congregation] Of one person.
  • 00:13:57.280 --> 00:14:00.170
  • - I remember when I first heard like this system.
  • 00:14:02.160 --> 00:14:06.190
  • I was working in the government
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:09.160
  • and the boss at that particular time
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:12.090
  • was just like this system.
  • 00:14:12.090 --> 00:14:14.030
  • He told me he said,
  • 00:14:14.030 --> 00:14:15.110
  • "As long as you on this job
  • 00:14:15.110 --> 00:14:17.250
  • "you can turn your little bitty of mind off."
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:22.100
  • I was about to quit.
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:24.040
  • I was so fired up about to quit,
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:25.210
  • but then I thought I'm a need this job.
  • 00:14:25.210 --> 00:14:28.290
  • I stayed 'cause I was thinking about going home
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:33.200
  • telling Dee Dee I quit and what that looked like.
  • 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:38.040
  • I just said, "Yes, sir."
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:40.050
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:43.180
  • But it was letting me in on a system
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:48.060
  • that I'm a have to become acquainted with.
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:53.130
  • Jermaine, when this Revelations 11 hit
  • 00:14:58.120 --> 00:15:01.210
  • we ain't gone have any kind of
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:05.280
  • voting polls every four years
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:11.170
  • to see if God still gone be God.
  • 00:15:11.170 --> 00:15:14.080
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:15:14.080 --> 00:15:17.200
  • Certainly there can be somebody else
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:20.290
  • who can rule for the next trillion years.
  • 00:15:20.290 --> 00:15:24.200
  • No, it's just gone be God's way
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:27.100
  • and some of y'all ain't gone like it.
  • 00:15:28.260 --> 00:15:31.180
  • But it ain't nothing you can do about it.
  • 00:15:31.180 --> 00:15:33.180
  • So he said when you accepted me
  • 00:15:33.180 --> 00:15:36.190
  • if you make me Lord now
  • 00:15:36.190 --> 00:15:38.190
  • your input and your opinions
  • 00:15:43.270 --> 00:15:46.170
  • your objective, your views
  • 00:15:46.170 --> 00:15:48.280
  • your decisions about what he said
  • 00:15:48.280 --> 00:15:51.290
  • is gone be taken away from you.
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:55.010
  • You won't have a right to vote on same sex marriage.
  • 00:15:55.010 --> 00:15:59.060
  • You won't have a right to vote on
  • 00:16:00.260 --> 00:16:03.110
  • whatever you would like to see.
  • 00:16:03.110 --> 00:16:06.150
  • These rights has messed up a whole lot of y'all
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:10.130
  • from understanding this system.
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:13.100
  • See he's taking from me the right to have
  • 00:16:13.100 --> 00:16:17.170
  • some of the things that I wanna have.
  • 00:16:17.170 --> 00:16:20.080
  • Let me just tell you something.
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:21.200
  • Okay, don't judge me.
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.120
  • I'm a show you one last scripture.
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:28.220
  • Show me John chapter number eight verse 23
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:32.070
  • and then I'm a quit.
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:35.150
  • Because there was something
  • 00:16:35.150 --> 00:16:38.040
  • that was crying out with me
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:40.040
  • and I ain't feel any peace.
  • 00:16:40.040 --> 00:16:42.040
  • That same umpire lives in me
  • 00:16:42.040 --> 00:16:44.160
  • watch this when it comes to other things
  • 00:16:45.200 --> 00:16:48.100
  • like withholding what I'm supposed to do.
  • 00:16:48.100 --> 00:16:51.210
  • In this monarchy
  • 00:16:51.210 --> 00:16:53.010
  • people really aren't even referred to as people.
  • 00:16:54.270 --> 00:16:59.210
  • They are referred to as subjects.
  • 00:16:59.210 --> 00:17:02.160
  • You can't even become subject to your husband, girl.
  • 00:17:05.280 --> 00:17:10.030
  • Subject yourself.
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:14.030
  • Lord, I done lost my crowd.
  • 00:17:15.190 --> 00:17:17.180
  • That's a part of it.
  • 00:17:17.180 --> 00:17:19.080
  • All of the people of England
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:24.020
  • that's who rules right there.
  • 00:17:24.020 --> 00:17:26.150
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:17:29.130 --> 00:17:31.060
  • this system you need to start becoming acquainted with
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:35.090
  • and it ain't under any man it's under our God.
  • 00:17:36.140 --> 00:17:40.020
  • He is Lord
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:44.080
  • and so your decisions about what you gone do
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:50.290
  • one day will be taken from you.
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:54.070
  • They were supposed to been taken from you
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:56.230
  • when you received Jesus.
  • 00:17:56.230 --> 00:17:58.240
  • But you hold on to some of the decisions
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:18:02.040
  • that you wanna do 'cause your flesh is in the war.
  • 00:18:02.040 --> 00:18:06.140
  • "I don't wanna let it go."
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:07.230
  • God said, "But it's better for you."
  • 00:18:07.230 --> 00:18:09.170
  • "But I like it."
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:10.240
  • "But I'm gone tell you something else.
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:12.210
  • "I wanna replace that lack with abundance.
  • 00:18:12.210 --> 00:18:16.030
  • "I wanna place that deficit with overflow."
  • 00:18:16.030 --> 00:18:19.010
  • But you hold (sighing), Lord.
  • 00:18:19.010 --> 00:18:22.260
  • Same people who would lift their hands and sing
  • 00:18:25.240 --> 00:18:29.110
  • My life is not my own
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:32.210
  • When God tell you don't be unequally yoked...
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:40.140
  • Okay, I'm gonna give you this scripture
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:47.000
  • and I'm a quit 'cause I'm way beyond my time.
  • 00:18:47.000 --> 00:18:49.220
  • He said to them OMG,
  • 00:18:49.220 --> 00:18:51.150
  • "You are from beneath",
  • 00:18:54.040 --> 00:18:56.160
  • Jesus, what?
  • 00:18:56.160 --> 00:18:57.160
  • "I am from above.
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:00.250
  • "You are of this world."
  • 00:19:02.000 --> 00:19:04.050
  • Go on.
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:05.000
  • Please listen to me.
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:11.260
  • I said please listen to me.
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:13.190
  • Look up, look up.
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:15.010
  • There's a system that is above
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:18.230
  • and there's a system that's beneath.
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:24.010
  • Every time you go diametrically oppose
  • 00:19:24.010 --> 00:19:27.090
  • to a decision that's above
  • 00:19:29.120 --> 00:19:31.190
  • you automatically qualify for beneath.
  • 00:19:32.240 --> 00:19:35.200
  • Some of you have not realized
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:39.270
  • you're trying to live in above status
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:42.270
  • making beneath decisions.
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:45.000
  • Everything is governed by systems
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:54.140
  • so it is with the kingdom of God.
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:20:00.060
  • You can't make a decision of unrighteousness
  • 00:20:00.060 --> 00:20:04.210
  • and think you gone stay up here.
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:07.110
  • So when the temptation comes to withhold tithe
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:16.150
  • or not come to church,
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:19.010
  • or love your wife even as Christ loves the church,
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:23.050
  • or to pray and study your word
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:26.060
  • see you don't understand
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:28.020
  • that you're already putting yourself
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:30.230
  • you're hustling backwards
  • 00:20:30.230 --> 00:20:32.000
  • the way they used to say it in the street.
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:34.250
  • You're trying to live an above life
  • 00:20:34.250 --> 00:20:37.080
  • making beneath decisions
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:39.000
  • when the scriptures says you shall be above
  • 00:20:39.000 --> 00:20:43.120
  • and never beneath.
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:45.120
  • This system is what has been created
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:49.010
  • to guarantee you an above lifestyle.
  • 00:20:49.010 --> 00:20:52.010
  • I'm done.
  • 00:20:56.150 --> 00:20:58.020
  • Don't act like you ain't interested.
  • 00:20:58.020 --> 00:21:01.090
  • I'm quitting.
  • 00:21:01.090 --> 00:21:02.090
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:05.270
  • Come on stand up quickly.
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:14.090
  • Rest on your feet.
  • 00:21:15.110 --> 00:21:16.260
  • How many decisions
  • 00:21:22.050 --> 00:21:23.230
  • and they are twisting this system every single day.
  • 00:21:27.040 --> 00:21:31.090
  • A little girl at the age of five
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:37.110
  • goes to her mother and say, "I feel like I'm a boy."
  • 00:21:38.230 --> 00:21:42.260
  • "Baby, you don't have to be trapped in a girl's body
  • 00:21:46.050 --> 00:21:50.100
  • "if you feel like a boy.
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:53.230
  • "I will assist you."
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:55.180
  • Even to the point where a Christian organization
  • 00:21:57.120 --> 00:22:01.210
  • has made exception for a little girl to in
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:05.080
  • years of standard have now made an exception
  • 00:22:08.040 --> 00:22:11.260
  • for a girl to be a part of the Boy Scouts.
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:16.220
  • Target has decided not to display gender
  • 00:22:18.080 --> 00:22:22.140
  • when it comes to their clothing.
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:25.040
  • There's no little boys section, little girls section.
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:30.050
  • It's kid's clothes.
  • 00:22:30.050 --> 00:22:31.210
  • So you can have the liberty of training your child
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:37.190
  • in the way they wanna go.
  • 00:22:37.190 --> 00:22:39.210
  • You can't keep violating the system of God
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:46.240
  • and think you gone live above.
  • 00:22:48.260 --> 00:22:51.020
  • I know this kind of teaching and preaching
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:53.220
  • is not popular in our culture.
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:56.070
  • But somebody is gonna have to risk
  • 00:22:57.210 --> 00:23:01.120
  • losing everybody if it means that
  • 00:23:01.120 --> 00:23:04.070
  • to tell the truth, the whole truth
  • 00:23:05.120 --> 00:23:08.000
  • and nothing but the truth.
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:09.270
  • Am I your enemy because I tell you the truth?
  • 00:23:09.270 --> 00:23:13.040
  • You shall know the truth.
  • 00:23:13.040 --> 00:23:15.070
  • The truth shall make you free.
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:22.170
  • When you were supposed to train up a child
  • 00:23:29.130 --> 00:23:32.050
  • my daddy would see me in my mama's high heels
  • 00:23:32.050 --> 00:23:36.120
  • "Boy, if you don't take them shoes off."
  • 00:23:36.120 --> 00:23:40.200
  • He didn't say, "Do you feel like a little girl?"
  • 00:23:40.200 --> 00:23:43.140
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:23:43.140 --> 00:23:46.250
  • Knees are bowing to a demonic system.
  • 00:23:46.250 --> 00:23:49.280
  • They ain't born that way.
  • 00:23:58.240 --> 00:24:00.200
  • They are making choices by the droves.
  • 00:24:00.200 --> 00:24:03.250
  • It's an option that this society has given us.
  • 00:24:06.280 --> 00:24:10.230
  • Because there's no governor
  • 00:24:12.040 --> 00:24:14.140
  • no ruler over your system
  • 00:24:15.130 --> 00:24:17.180
  • you have selected another ruler.
  • 00:24:19.070 --> 00:24:22.110
  • You can't live above making beneath decisions.
  • 00:24:22.110 --> 00:24:26.060
  • That's why the bible says,
  • 00:24:31.080 --> 00:24:33.270
  • "In all your ways acknowledge him."
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:36.290
  • He'll give you the above decisions.
  • 00:24:39.220 --> 00:24:42.130
  • Hand over your decisions today.
  • 00:24:42.130 --> 00:24:45.010
  • Hand them over to him.
  • 00:24:46.150 --> 00:24:49.010
  • Not my will but God your will be done.
  • 00:24:49.010 --> 00:24:52.060
  • They're people who're contemplating divorce
  • 00:24:53.170 --> 00:24:56.050
  • because your flesh is just speaking to you.
  • 00:24:56.050 --> 00:24:59.230
  • "I no longer wanna be married."
  • 00:25:02.220 --> 00:25:05.100
  • I don't have a decision in that.
  • 00:25:05.100 --> 00:25:08.000
  • I don't.
  • 00:25:09.290 --> 00:25:11.020
  • I've handed that over.
  • 00:25:11.020 --> 00:25:13.040
  • I can't decide whether or not I'm gone divorce Dee Dee.
  • 00:25:13.040 --> 00:25:17.120
  • Even when we were having the hellish days
  • 00:25:17.120 --> 00:25:20.110
  • that we could beyond what you can imagine.
  • 00:25:20.110 --> 00:25:24.180
  • I could not make a decision to divorce her
  • 00:25:24.180 --> 00:25:28.070
  • because I gave that decision over to him.
  • 00:25:28.070 --> 00:25:31.190
  • I can't make a decision not to come to church.
  • 00:25:33.260 --> 00:25:36.250
  • I can't make a decision not to tithe.
  • 00:25:36.250 --> 00:25:39.000
  • I don't have that decision.
  • 00:25:39.000 --> 00:25:40.280
  • My decisions have been given to him.
  • 00:25:40.280 --> 00:25:44.120
  • Whatever you want from my life
  • 00:25:44.120 --> 00:25:47.100
  • that's what I'll do.
  • 00:25:47.100 --> 00:25:49.190
  • I'll do what you want me to do.
  • 00:25:49.190 --> 00:25:52.240
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:25:52.240 --> 00:25:54.090
  • that's a transition to making him Lord.
  • 00:25:54.090 --> 00:25:57.170
  • For some of you he's just savior
  • 00:25:58.240 --> 00:26:01.190
  • but we gotta go deeper this year.
  • 00:26:01.190 --> 00:26:04.090
  • You gotta make him Lord.
  • 00:26:04.090 --> 00:26:06.090
  • You gotta make him Lord.
  • 00:26:07.160 --> 00:26:09.160
  • Because either he'll become Lord now
  • 00:26:10.200 --> 00:26:13.200
  • or he will become Lord later.
  • 00:26:15.080 --> 00:26:17.200
  • Series business being a part of this system.
  • 00:26:23.030 --> 00:26:26.230

  • When you're about to make your next set of decisions
  • 00:26:51.080 --> 00:26:54.270

  • "Please, check this, check this decision.
  • 00:27:00.100 --> 00:27:03.210
