  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: "I

  • know I'm bleeding, I know
  • 00:00:10.240 --> 00:00:12.110

  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:56.190
  • Today, my father has a message
  • 00:00:56.190 --> 00:00:58.130
  • for you called "Don't Be
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:01:00.030
  • Blindsided."
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:01.120
  • - Bishop Jakes: Paul is
  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:11.030
  • pregnant, a three-year
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:16.070
  • pregnancy.
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:17.280
  • Pregnant with destiny, pregnant
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:22.170
  • with purpose, pregnant with
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:24.270
  • possibilities, pregnant with
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:26.260
  • creativity, pregnant with ideas,
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:30.070
  • pregnant with concepts.
  • 00:01:30.070 --> 00:01:32.040
  • Oh, I love to be around pregnant
  • 00:01:32.040 --> 00:01:33.210
  • people.
  • 00:01:33.210 --> 00:01:35.170
  • They're always birthing stuff.
  • 00:01:35.170 --> 00:01:36.260
  • Have ya thought about this?
  • 00:01:36.260 --> 00:01:38.280
  • Have ya--we could do this and
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:40.150
  • then we could do that.
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:42.070
  • And if we go over here, we get
  • 00:01:42.070 --> 00:01:43.130
  • over there.
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:45.060
  • Deliver me from people who say,
  • 00:01:45.060 --> 00:01:47.070
  • "We can't do it.
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:48.270
  • We don't have enough.
  • 00:01:48.270 --> 00:01:50.160
  • We're not smart enough.
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:52.020
  • We're too old.
  • 00:01:52.020 --> 00:01:53.120
  • We're too fat."
  • 00:01:53.120 --> 00:01:54.120
  • Get out of here.
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.130
  • So Paul is carrying Ephesus in
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:13.030
  • the womb of his ministry for
  • 00:02:13.130 --> 00:02:16.130
  • three years.
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:18.090
  • He said, "I cease not, both day
  • 00:02:18.150 --> 00:02:21.150
  • and night to weep for Ephesus
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:26.020
  • because when I get through with
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.260
  • this birthing process, I'm going
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:30.270
  • to have to commend to God, and
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:33.240
  • the Word of his grace which is
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:35.170
  • able to build you up, and give
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:36.230
  • you an inheritance," listen to
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:39.130
  • that, "and give you, build you
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:41.050
  • up and give you an inheritance
  • 00:02:41.050 --> 00:02:43.100
  • among all them that are
  • 00:02:43.100 --> 00:02:44.080
  • sanctified.
  • 00:02:44.080 --> 00:02:45.020
  • After my departure, grievous
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:47.120
  • wolves will come in, not sparing
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:51.180
  • the flock of God."
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:52.220
  • While I'm here, the baby is
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:56.070
  • protected.
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.290
  • When I go, you're on your own.
  • 00:03:03.040 --> 00:03:06.040
  • He's birthing them.
  • 00:03:06.040 --> 00:03:07.220
  • It reminded me of the couple
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:10.120
  • that birthed the blind child in
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:12.170
  • the Book of John.
  • 00:03:13.150 --> 00:03:16.150
  • And Jesus came upon him and he
  • 00:03:16.150 --> 00:03:17.240
  • was blind, and the disciples
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:20.290
  • said, "Who sinned, his mother or
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:22.130
  • his father, that he should be
  • 00:03:22.130 --> 00:03:24.170
  • born blind?
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:27.230
  • Jesus says, 'Neither, but for
  • 00:03:27.230 --> 00:03:29.090
  • the glory of God.'"
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:33.000
  • Paul has birthed
  • 00:03:33.000 --> 00:03:34.140
  • them three months, then
  • 00:03:35.020 --> 00:03:38.020
  • leaves them, and in Ephesus, he
  • 00:03:38.020 --> 00:03:40.260
  • is writing back to that which he
  • 00:03:40.260 --> 00:03:43.130
  • has birthed, saying, "You are
  • 00:03:43.130 --> 00:03:45.230
  • birthed, but you are still
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:48.080
  • spiritually blind."
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:53.110
  • I birthed ya, but I birthed
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:56.040
  • a blind baby.
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:59.190
  • He says, "Now, I pray for you,
  • 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:04.120
  • that the Spirit of wisdom and
  • 00:04:04.120 --> 00:04:06.020
  • revelation in Christ Jesus,
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:09.080
  • might manifest itself in you," O
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:12.070
  • God, "that the eyes of your
  • 00:04:13.030 --> 00:04:16.030
  • understanding may be," check
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:19.270
  • this out, "in light."
  • 00:04:19.270 --> 00:04:22.240
  • I'm not praying--see, Jesus did
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:24.050
  • a lot of healing of blind people
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:27.030
  • so that they could see
  • 00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:28.010
  • outwardly.
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:29.150
  • Paul prays for people who are
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:32.060
  • blind inwardly, "that the eyes
  • 00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:35.190
  • of your understanding might be
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:38.260
  • in light."
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:42.120
  • Oh, this is good.
  • 00:04:42.120 --> 00:04:44.100
  • I said, "This is good."
  • 00:04:44.100 --> 00:04:45.200
  • What he's trying to get them to
  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:47.290
  • understand is that your
  • 00:04:47.290 --> 00:04:50.150
  • understanding, understanding,
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:54.050
  • understanding is simply this:
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:56.130
  • the truth you stand under.
  • 00:05:00.270 --> 00:05:03.270
  • Understanding is the truth you
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:06.280
  • stand under.
  • 00:05:06.280 --> 00:05:09.270
  • What are you going to do if the
  • 00:05:09.270 --> 00:05:12.260
  • truth you stand under is blind?
  • 00:05:19.260 --> 00:05:22.260
  • The truth you stand under is
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:26.260
  • blind.
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:29.290
  • The truth you tell yourself
  • 00:05:29.290 --> 00:05:31.230
  • about your situation, the truth
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:35.040
  • you've told other people about
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:36.270
  • your situation, the truth that
  • 00:05:37.090 --> 00:05:40.090
  • you have convinced yourself to
  • 00:05:40.090 --> 00:05:42.170
  • be absolutely correct, could be
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:46.270
  • blind?
  • 00:05:47.020 --> 00:05:50.020
  • You don't believe it?
  • 00:05:50.020 --> 00:05:52.140
  • Tell your story to somebody who
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:55.050
  • was also there.
  • 00:05:58.220 --> 00:06:01.240
  • You have given so much power to
  • 00:06:01.240 --> 00:06:03.290
  • your story that your story now
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:07.010
  • justifies your condition.
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.280
  • "I can't do it because of my
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:12.140
  • story."
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:14.110
  • You're like the man who's lain
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:15.180
  • Jesus asked him, "Wilt thou be
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:21.050
  • made whole?"
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:22.160
  • He said, "It's not my will to be
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:24.110
  • like this but when I get ready
  • 00:06:24.110 --> 00:06:26.170
  • to step in, nobody helped me."
  • 00:06:26.200 --> 00:06:29.200
  • In 38 years, you could of rolled
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:32.140
  • - Bishop Jakes: It was not your
  • 00:06:40.190 --> 00:06:41.180
  • lameness that stopped ya, it was
  • 00:06:41.180 --> 00:06:44.040
  • the story that you told
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:46.000
  • yourself.
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:47.240
  • Oh, y'all aren't going to help
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:48.250
  • me.
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:52.220
  • Listen, ooh, ooh, touch somebody
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:55.190
  • and say, "I got to fix this
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.200
  • story."
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:59.070
  • Listen at the story, the woman
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:01.190
  • with the issue of blood tells
  • 00:07:01.190 --> 00:07:03.030
  • herself.
  • 00:07:03.030 --> 00:07:04.140
  • Everybody else says she's going
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:06.290
  • to die.
  • 00:07:06.290 --> 00:07:08.290
  • There's no doctor, there's no
  • 00:07:08.290 --> 00:07:10.090
  • hospital, there's no CVS,
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:13.020
  • there's no prescription, there's
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:14.140
  • no medicine, there's no
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:15.210
  • medication.
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:16.170
  • Religion says, "You're unclean,
  • 00:07:17.060 --> 00:07:20.060
  • don't touch anybody, because you
  • 00:07:20.060 --> 00:07:22.220
  • have an issue," so religion
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:26.020
  • isn't helping her.
  • 00:07:26.020 --> 00:07:28.070
  • Medicine isn't helping her, she
  • 00:07:28.070 --> 00:07:30.140
  • went to all the doctors and
  • 00:07:30.140 --> 00:07:31.290
  • spent all of her money.
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:33.290
  • Her money didn't help her, their
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:35.260
  • medicine didn't help her, she
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:37.290
  • still remains blind until she
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:40.180
  • changes her story.
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:42.230
  • She changed her story when she
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:44.130
  • said to herself, "If I may but
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:48.100
  • touch the hem of his garment."
  • 00:07:48.280 --> 00:07:51.280
  • O, God.
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:53.040
  • Don't make me preach this
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:53.260
  • morning?
  • 00:07:53.260 --> 00:07:55.120
  • You ought to reach for
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:07:58.100
  • something.
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:07:58.280
  • "If I could just--I know I'm
  • 00:08:01.160 --> 00:08:04.160
  • bleeding, I know I'm weak, I
  • 00:08:04.260 --> 00:08:07.260
  • know the odds are against me, I
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:09.230
  • know I'm out of money, I know
  • 00:08:09.230 --> 00:08:11.050
  • I'm out of medicine, I know
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.220
  • religion hadn't helped me, but
  • 00:08:12.220 --> 00:08:14.200
  • if I can just touch the hem of
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:18.030
  • his garment, I will be made
  • 00:08:20.280 --> 00:08:23.280
  • whole."
  • 00:08:23.280 --> 00:08:26.150
  • Now, understand this, in the
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:28.280
  • original language when it says,
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:30.130
  • "that she said to herself," it
  • 00:08:30.130 --> 00:08:32.290
  • means, it literally means she
  • 00:08:32.290 --> 00:08:34.210
  • said over, and over, and over
  • 00:08:34.210 --> 00:08:37.130
  • again.
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:38.220
  • Because when you repeat a new
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:41.090
  • story, you delete an old one.
  • 00:08:44.020 --> 00:08:47.020
  • Whoo, that one's worth getting
  • 00:08:47.020 --> 00:08:48.160
  • up out of the bed if I don't say
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:49.240
  • anything else.
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:53.140
  • You cannot delete your old story
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:57.000
  • until you repeat your new story.
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:09:01.000
  • Her old story is, "You're
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:02.170
  • dying."
  • 00:09:02.170 --> 00:09:03.270
  • Her old story says, "Don't touch
  • 00:09:03.270 --> 00:09:05.090
  • anybody."
  • 00:09:05.090 --> 00:09:06.070
  • Her old story says, "This is
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:07.130
  • hopeless."
  • 00:09:07.130 --> 00:09:08.100
  • Her old story says, "You are
  • 00:09:08.100 --> 00:09:09.160
  • broke, and you are bleeding, and
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:12.050
  • you're going to die."
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:13.180
  • Her new story says, "If I can
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:15.050
  • just touch it.
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:16.100
  • If I can just touch it.
  • 00:09:16.100 --> 00:09:17.100
  • If I can just touch the hem of
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:18.230
  • his garment, if I can just make
  • 00:09:18.230 --> 00:09:20.070
  • it, if I can make it to Jesus,
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:22.100
  • if I can make it to Jesus."
  • 00:09:22.100 --> 00:09:23.290
  • Which one worked the best?
  • 00:09:23.290 --> 00:09:25.220
  • Maybe, maybe it is time for you
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:38.290
  • to get a new story, and in order
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:42.160
  • to get a new story, "Father,
  • 00:09:42.160 --> 00:09:44.070
  • open her eyes.
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.200
  • Father, open his eyes.
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:47.030
  • Father open their eyes," because
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:50.170
  • you can't change your story
  • 00:09:50.170 --> 00:09:52.180
  • until you are enlightened.
  • 00:09:54.110 --> 00:09:57.110
  • Wow.
  • 00:09:58.000 --> 00:10:01.000
  • Isn't that good?
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:03.030
  • You know something?
  • 00:10:03.030 --> 00:10:03.280
  • I'm getting older, I don't mind
  • 00:10:03.280 --> 00:10:05.120
  • it, I kind of like it.
  • 00:10:05.120 --> 00:10:06.200
  • Took it me a minute; I'm kind of
  • 00:10:06.200 --> 00:10:07.160
  • getting used to it.
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:08.230
  • Had to grow on me, didn't like
  • 00:10:08.230 --> 00:10:10.060
  • it at first, but it's okay.
  • 00:10:10.060 --> 00:10:12.230
  • - male: You're looking good.
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:13.140
  • - Bishop Jakes: I'm looking
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:14.010
  • good?
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:14.190
  • That's good.
  • 00:10:14.190 --> 00:10:15.070
  • If I'm looking good, I can make
  • 00:10:15.070 --> 00:10:16.090
  • it.
  • 00:10:16.090 --> 00:10:18.200
  • What I would hate is to get old
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:24.200
  • and get ready to die, and in my
  • 00:10:24.220 --> 00:10:27.220
  • last moment of life to wonder
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:29.230
  • what would have happened if I
  • 00:10:31.220 --> 00:10:34.220
  • would have only stuck it out or
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:37.190
  • fought through it or went after
  • 00:10:37.190 --> 00:10:39.260
  • it?
  • 00:10:39.260 --> 00:10:41.010
  • I would rather go after it and
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:42.250
  • fail, I'd rather, I'd rather
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:46.150
  • climb up and trip, I'd rather
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:49.070
  • walk on the water and sink, and
  • 00:10:49.070 --> 00:10:52.000
  • Jesus have to get me out of the
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:53.150
  • mess, then to stay on the boat
  • 00:10:53.150 --> 00:10:55.140
  • and say, "Wonder what woulda
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:56.290
  • happened if I've I'd of walked
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:59.050
  • on the water?"
  • 00:11:01.020 --> 00:11:04.020
  • Some people are so bent on
  • 00:11:04.020 --> 00:11:06.200
  • playing it safe, but they don't
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:09.160
  • know that playing it safe is a
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:11.240
  • result of being blind to the
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:15.020
  • possibilities of what could
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:17.180
  • happen if you would change your
  • 00:11:17.260 --> 00:11:20.260
  • - female announcer: Still to
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:30.010
  • come on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:11:30.010 --> 00:11:31.050
  • - Bishop Jakes: He's not asking
  • 00:11:31.050 --> 00:11:33.080
  • you for something that he didn't
  • 00:11:33.080 --> 00:11:34.030
  • already put inside of you.
  • 00:11:34.030 --> 00:11:35.270
  • Do you know what you got?
  • 00:11:35.270 --> 00:11:37.240
  • God's not asking you to sing if
  • 00:11:37.240 --> 00:11:39.210
  • you can't sing.
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:40.250
  • He's not asking you to preach if
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:42.060
  • you can't preach.
  • 00:11:42.060 --> 00:11:43.110
  • God's not asking you to build if
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:44.200
  • you can't build.
  • 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:45.280
  • God's not asking you to be an
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:47.000
  • entrepreneur if you're not that.
  • 00:11:47.000 --> 00:11:48.190
  • He only asks of you what he's
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:51.100
  • - female: Thank you so much.
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:57.070
  • We listen to the Bishop almost
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:12:01.050
  • every day.
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:02.170
  • - male: And every morning.
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:03.260
  • - female: Every morning early.
  • 00:12:03.260 --> 00:12:04.150
  • And he's on our television and
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:06.060
  • blaring through the house.
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:08.130
  • We love it.
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:09.100
  • - male: Thank you for having a
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.020
  • vision.
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:11.050
  • - female: Thank you.
  • 00:12:11.050 --> 00:12:12.100
  • Thank you so much for being
  • 00:12:12.100 --> 00:12:13.280
  • obedient to what God has called
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.040
  • - Bishop Jakes: If you are not
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:22.130
  • in the room where changes are
  • 00:12:22.130 --> 00:12:24.080
  • occurring, you are stuck in the
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:27.110
  • yard where consequences are
  • 00:12:27.110 --> 00:12:29.150
  • - Bishop Jakes: Oh, am I
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:02.080
  • talking to somebody?
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:05.010
  • I'm trying to save you from
  • 00:13:05.010 --> 00:13:06.020
  • bitterness because bitterness
  • 00:13:06.110 --> 00:13:09.110
  • comes when you have regret from
  • 00:13:11.040 --> 00:13:14.040
  • making decisions too soon.
  • 00:13:15.270 --> 00:13:18.270
  • So what they did for me--
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:23.080
  • and they, they gave me an
  • 00:13:23.080 --> 00:13:24.020
  • eye exam.
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:27.010
  • They gave me an eye exam.
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:28.120
  • So sat me on the table and after
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:30.210
  • they put all the drops in my
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:32.080
  • eyes.
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:33.260
  • She says, "What do you see?"
  • 00:13:33.260 --> 00:13:35.270
  • Because how I answered what I
  • 00:13:35.270 --> 00:13:38.070
  • saw, helped her to understand
  • 00:13:38.170 --> 00:13:41.170
  • whether my eyes were
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:43.150
  • enlightened.
  • 00:13:44.080 --> 00:13:47.080
  • How you see is the test on how
  • 00:13:47.290 --> 00:13:50.290
  • well your eyes are.
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:54.220
  • So Paul here gives an eye exam
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:57.160
  • in the test and he gives three
  • 00:13:57.160 --> 00:13:59.000
  • questions on the test, and these
  • 00:13:59.000 --> 00:14:01.000
  • are the final three areas that
  • 00:14:01.000 --> 00:14:02.080
  • he deals with.
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:04.020
  • One, he deals with "I want you
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:07.200
  • to see your purpose."
  • 00:14:07.240 --> 00:14:10.240
  • Okay.
  • 00:14:10.240 --> 00:14:12.120
  • Two, "I want you to see your
  • 00:14:13.060 --> 00:14:16.060
  • possession."
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:18.200
  • And three, "I want you to see
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:21.170
  • your power."
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:24.180
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:14:24.180 --> 00:14:25.290
  • I want you to see your purpose.
  • 00:14:29.080 --> 00:14:32.080
  • He says it this way, "The eyes
  • 00:14:32.080 --> 00:14:34.070
  • of your understanding might be
  • 00:14:34.070 --> 00:14:35.080
  • enlightened, that you might know
  • 00:14:35.080 --> 00:14:36.120
  • what is the hope of his
  • 00:14:36.120 --> 00:14:38.240
  • calling."
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:40.030
  • He says, "I want you to know it.
  • 00:14:40.030 --> 00:14:41.150
  • You don't have to reach it, just
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:43.150
  • know it.
  • 00:14:43.150 --> 00:14:45.020
  • You don't have to touch it, can
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.110
  • see it?"
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:47.090
  • "Do you want me to touch that F,
  • 00:14:47.090 --> 00:14:48.150
  • that G and that M?"
  • 00:14:48.150 --> 00:14:50.040
  • "No, I don't want you to touch
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:51.110
  • it, reverend.
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:52.120
  • I just want you to be able to
  • 00:14:52.120 --> 00:14:53.140
  • see it."
  • 00:14:53.140 --> 00:14:54.160
  • See, you're busy trying to touch
  • 00:14:54.160 --> 00:14:55.150
  • it but the test isn't to touch
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:57.250
  • it.
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:14:59.070
  • The test is can you see it.
  • 00:14:59.230 --> 00:15:02.250
  • O my God.
  • 00:15:02.250 --> 00:15:04.000
  • I'm helping somebody.
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:05.160
  • I can feel it.
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:06.270
  • I don't know who it is.
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:08.020
  • See, you are all worried, "I
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:09.160
  • should have been further for my
  • 00:15:09.160 --> 00:15:11.040
  • age, and I should have touched
  • 00:15:11.040 --> 00:15:13.030
  • it by now.
  • 00:15:13.030 --> 00:15:14.120
  • I thought I should have touched
  • 00:15:14.120 --> 00:15:15.190
  • by now.
  • 00:15:15.190 --> 00:15:16.220
  • I thought by now, I would have
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:18.140
  • touched."
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:19.060
  • The test is not to touch it.
  • 00:15:19.180 --> 00:15:22.180
  • The test is to see it.
  • 00:15:23.110 --> 00:15:26.110
  • He says, "I pray that the eyes
  • 00:15:26.110 --> 00:15:27.080
  • of your understanding might be
  • 00:15:27.080 --> 00:15:28.160
  • enlightened that he ye may know
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:30.140
  • what is the hope of his
  • 00:15:30.140 --> 00:15:32.290
  • calling."
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:33.190
  • He said, "I want you to know
  • 00:15:33.190 --> 00:15:34.190
  • your purpose, the power of
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:37.020
  • knowing your purpose."
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:39.170
  • I know my purpose.
  • 00:15:39.170 --> 00:15:42.070
  • I am here right now 'cause I
  • 00:15:42.070 --> 00:15:44.220
  • I know, I know my purpose.
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:56.120
  • By process of elimination.
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:16:00.090
  • He said, "This door, this door,
  • 00:16:00.090 --> 00:16:02.100
  • this door, this door," said,
  • 00:16:02.100 --> 00:16:05.050
  • "okay dummy, you got one door.
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:07.180
  • You don't have to be led."
  • 00:16:07.180 --> 00:16:09.280
  • "I will never bless you through
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:11.200
  • what you lost.
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:14.080
  • I will always use what you have
  • 00:16:14.080 --> 00:16:15.110
  • left."
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:17.130
  • Two fish, five loaves of bread,
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:18.210
  • a handful of mill; it'll always
  • 00:16:18.210 --> 00:16:19.290
  • be what's left not what's lost.
  • 00:16:19.290 --> 00:16:21.190
  • Stop weeping over what's lost.
  • 00:16:21.190 --> 00:16:23.130
  • The miracles always in what's
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:25.060
  • left.
  • 00:16:25.060 --> 00:16:26.120
  • Know your purpose.
  • 00:16:28.100 --> 00:16:31.100
  • This is an eye exam.
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:34.080
  • I know my purpose.
  • 00:16:34.080 --> 00:16:37.040
  • I counted on myself to have
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:38.040
  • apprehend it, I haven't reached
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:39.290
  • it yet.
  • 00:16:39.290 --> 00:16:41.100
  • I haven't reached it yet.
  • 00:16:41.100 --> 00:16:42.140
  • I'm stretching.
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:44.220
  • I'm getting there, but I haven't
  • 00:16:44.220 --> 00:16:47.060
  • reached it.
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:48.080
  • That's why I woke up this
  • 00:16:48.080 --> 00:16:48.280
  • morning.
  • 00:16:48.280 --> 00:16:49.220
  • I haven't reached it.
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:50.260
  • Well, I'll know when I reach it.
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:51.280
  • When I reach it, I'll write you
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:54.080
  • a letter saying, "I've kept the
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:55.090
  • faith.
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:56.080
  • I've finished my course.
  • 00:16:56.080 --> 00:16:57.190
  • Now, laid up for me is the crown
  • 00:16:57.190 --> 00:16:58.230
  • of righteousness."
  • 00:16:58.230 --> 00:16:59.230
  • I have not reached it yet, but
  • 00:16:59.230 --> 00:17:01.130
  • I'm in the press.
  • 00:17:02.010 --> 00:17:05.010
  • You can't press toward what you
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:06.280
  • don't know.
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:09.250
  • In fact, you are pressing toward
  • 00:17:11.070 --> 00:17:14.070
  • what you do know.
  • 00:17:14.070 --> 00:17:16.210
  • But suppose what you know is
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:17.200
  • wrong?
  • 00:17:17.200 --> 00:17:20.100
  • Suppose your understanding is
  • 00:17:20.100 --> 00:17:21.240
  • blind, and you are walking in
  • 00:17:22.070 --> 00:17:25.070
  • the darkness of no light.
  • 00:17:27.180 --> 00:17:30.180
  • "My people perished," he said,
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:31.280
  • "for their lack of knowledge."
  • 00:17:31.280 --> 00:17:33.280
  • Not for the lack of money, not
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:36.040
  • for the lack of friends, not for
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:38.240
  • He says, "What's killing you is
  • 00:17:40.270 --> 00:17:42.000
  • what you don't know.
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:43.000
  • Pray that the eyes of your
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:44.080
  • understanding might be
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:45.140
  • enlightened, that you might
  • 00:17:45.140 --> 00:17:46.070
  • know, that you might know what
  • 00:17:46.100 --> 00:17:49.100
  • is the hope of his calling."
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:51.220
  • Know your purpose.
  • 00:17:51.250 --> 00:17:54.250
  • That's why we're writing about
  • 00:17:54.250 --> 00:17:55.220
  • your purpose, you know what
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:01.050
  • isn't your purpose, so you can
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:03.090
  • stop being distracted trying to
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:05.270
  • do something that is not in the
  • 00:18:05.270 --> 00:18:08.010
  • wheelhouse of what you were
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:09.250
  • designed to do.
  • 00:18:09.250 --> 00:18:11.170
  • Somebody holla, "I know my
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:12.080
  • purpose."
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:13.100
  • - all: I know my purpose.
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:14.140
  • - Bishop Jakes: Say it again.
  • 00:18:14.140 --> 00:18:15.100
  • Say, "I know my purpose."
  • 00:18:15.100 --> 00:18:16.110
  • - all: I know my purpose.
  • 00:18:16.110 --> 00:18:17.240
  • - Bishop Jakes: Even if you're
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:18.140
  • still learning it, shout, "I
  • 00:18:18.140 --> 00:18:19.060
  • know my purpose."
  • 00:18:19.060 --> 00:18:20.100
  • - all: I know my purpose.
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:21.220
  • - Bishop Jakes: I want every
  • 00:18:21.220 --> 00:18:22.130
  • devil in hell to hear you say,
  • 00:18:22.130 --> 00:18:23.130
  • "I know my purpose."
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:24.230
  • - all: I know my purpose.
  • 00:18:24.230 --> 00:18:26.190
  • - Bishop Jakes: So you can stop
  • 00:18:26.190 --> 00:18:27.160
  • offering this and that and the
  • 00:18:27.160 --> 00:18:28.200
  • other.
  • 00:18:28.200 --> 00:18:29.240
  • I know my purpose.
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.000
  • I know, I know what is the hope
  • 00:18:31.000 --> 00:18:33.030
  • of his calling.
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.150
  • Oh, glory to God.
  • 00:18:34.150 --> 00:18:35.280
  • Thank you, Jesus.
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:37.040
  • Number two, "You must know your
  • 00:18:37.040 --> 00:18:39.080
  • possessions."
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:42.100
  • What is the exceeding riches of
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:45.200
  • his inheritance in the saints?
  • 00:18:45.200 --> 00:18:48.040
  • What he put in you.
  • 00:18:48.040 --> 00:18:50.210
  • "I know what I got.
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:53.280
  • I know my purpose and I know my
  • 00:18:55.110 --> 00:18:58.110
  • possessions.
  • 00:18:58.110 --> 00:19:01.110
  • I will not fight this challenge
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:05.040
  • with what you possess because I
  • 00:19:05.040 --> 00:19:08.020
  • can't fight Goliath in your
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:09.290
  • armor.
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:13.010
  • I have not proven your armor."
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:16.040
  • This slingshot might not look
  • 00:19:16.040 --> 00:19:17.120
  • like much but I know how to work
  • 00:19:17.120 --> 00:19:19.080
  • this slingshot.
  • 00:19:19.080 --> 00:19:21.070
  • I know my possessions.
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:23.290
  • Glory to God.
  • 00:19:23.290 --> 00:19:25.100
  • Look at your neighbor and say,
  • 00:19:25.100 --> 00:19:26.060
  • "Do you know what you got?"
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:27.170
  • - all: Do you know what you
  • 00:19:27.170 --> 00:19:28.110
  • got?
  • 00:19:28.110 --> 00:19:29.070
  • - Bishop Jakes: Do you know
  • 00:19:29.070 --> 00:19:30.000
  • what God hid in you, his
  • 00:19:30.000 --> 00:19:31.140
  • inheritance, the treasure that
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:33.160
  • he placed inside of you, what he
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:35.020
  • stands to gain?
  • 00:19:35.030 --> 00:19:38.030
  • Look y'all, let me break this
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:39.030
  • down.
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:39.280
  • Can I go a little bit deeper?
  • 00:19:39.280 --> 00:19:41.160
  • Inheritance is what you stand to
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:44.050
  • gain.
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:46.040
  • The Bible says, "He buried his
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:48.020
  • inheritance in you," so that
  • 00:19:49.030 --> 00:19:52.030
  • whatever God is asking for he
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:55.100
  • already gave you.
  • 00:19:55.100 --> 00:19:57.200
  • He's not asking you for
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:19:58.250
  • something that he didn't already
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:00.070
  • put inside of you.
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:02.050
  • Do you know what you got?
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:04.110
  • God's not asking you to sing if
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:06.000
  • you can't sing.
  • 00:20:06.000 --> 00:20:07.100
  • He's not asking you to preach if
  • 00:20:07.100 --> 00:20:08.180
  • you can't preach.
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:09.280
  • God's not asking you to build if
  • 00:20:09.280 --> 00:20:11.030
  • you can't build.
  • 00:20:11.030 --> 00:20:12.180
  • God's not asking you to be an
  • 00:20:12.180 --> 00:20:13.250
  • entrepreneur if you're not that.
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:14.290
  • He only asks of you what he's
  • 00:20:15.030 --> 00:20:18.030
  • placed inside of you.
  • 00:20:21.200 --> 00:20:24.200
  • Do you know what you got?
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:27.070
  • When you know what you have, you
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:30.010
  • know it when you hear it.
  • 00:20:30.010 --> 00:20:33.000
  • When other people say it, they
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:34.080
  • reaffirm what you already know.
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:36.010
  • Anywhere, it be a prophet, man
  • 00:20:36.010 --> 00:20:38.040
  • or angel come unto you and
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:40.030
  • affirm you of something that
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:41.220
  • does not confirm what you know,
  • 00:20:41.220 --> 00:20:44.000
  • you reject it.
  • 00:20:44.000 --> 00:20:46.070
  • Like you come in here and
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:47.140
  • prophesy, "Yea, I say unto thee
  • 00:20:47.140 --> 00:20:48.240
  • this day, thou shalt be an
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:50.000
  • astronaut," and I quit all of
  • 00:20:53.000 --> 00:20:56.000
  • this and go running over here,
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:57.100
  • jumping on a spaceship off of
  • 00:20:58.070 --> 00:21:01.090
  • something he said that wasn't
  • 00:21:01.110 --> 00:21:04.110
  • revealed to me.
  • 00:21:04.180 --> 00:21:07.180
  • I can't walk in your revelation
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:09.180
  • of who I am.
  • 00:21:09.180 --> 00:21:10.270
  • I can only walk in my revelation
  • 00:21:10.270 --> 00:21:12.250
  • of who I am.
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:16.090
  • You know what you got.
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:17.200
  • The thirst to know what you have
  • 00:21:17.200 --> 00:21:20.010
  • will often drive you into the
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:21.170
  • company of people who appear to
  • 00:21:21.170 --> 00:21:23.150
  • know.
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:28.100
  • If you don't know what you have,
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:30.010
  • anybody who comes along and
  • 00:21:30.010 --> 00:21:31.110
  • seems like they know what you
  • 00:21:31.110 --> 00:21:32.270
  • have, you will follow them
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:34.190
  • because of what you don't know,
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:37.270
  • but if you know what you
  • 00:21:37.270 --> 00:21:39.120
  • possess, you will only follow
  • 00:21:39.120 --> 00:21:41.220
  • people who confirm what is
  • 00:21:41.220 --> 00:21:44.060
  • already revealed in your spirit.
  • 00:21:44.060 --> 00:21:46.290
  • See, this is a confirming Word
  • 00:21:46.290 --> 00:21:48.240
  • for somebody.
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:49.250
  • I don't know who it is.
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:51.070
  • Somebody's listening at me.
  • 00:21:51.070 --> 00:21:52.250
  • They're paying me no attention
  • 00:21:52.250 --> 00:21:53.180
  • at all.
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:55.070
  • I am not your pastor.
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.220
  • The ones that are really the
  • 00:21:56.220 --> 00:21:58.250
  • sheep of this house, you are
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:22:00.030
  • tied into me because I am
  • 00:22:00.030 --> 00:22:02.120
  • confirming something that you
  • 00:22:02.120 --> 00:22:04.170
  • already sense in your spirit.
  • 00:22:04.170 --> 00:22:07.120
  • I'm not trying to pastor
