  • As long as you act like you

  • don't run out, you don't give

  • him no place to run in.
  • 00:00:23.200 --> 00:00:25.070

  • I have to give back to you, just
  • 00:00:33.020 --> 00:00:35.260
  • so that I can show them who

  • this woman has a gap.
  • 00:00:44.270 --> 00:00:46.260
  • But if you open up and say, "I'm
  • 00:00:46.260 --> 00:00:47.260
  • out of it.
  • 00:00:47.260 --> 00:00:48.140
  • I don't know what to do.
  • 00:00:48.140 --> 00:00:49.050
  • I can't fix it.

  • I can't bring it together.
  • 00:00:49.290 --> 00:00:50.270
  • I can't handle it," he'll run in

  • happened in the lives of two
  • 00:01:44.130 --> 00:01:46.160
  • women and how God filled the
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:49.080
  • - Bishop Jakes: This woman in
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:56.130
  • this text had fallen on that one
  • 00:01:56.130 --> 00:01:59.010
  • thing she was good: her husband
  • 00:01:59.010 --> 00:02:01.210
  • was in the company of the
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:02.240
  • prophets of Elijah.
  • 00:02:02.240 --> 00:02:04.230
  • She was known in the gates.
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:06.290
  • She was a blessed woman: two
  • 00:02:06.290 --> 00:02:09.130
  • children, home, everything taken
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:13.060
  • care of, looking good.
  • 00:02:13.060 --> 00:02:15.260
  • And he died, and her world
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:18.230
  • changed.
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:20.230
  • He died, and her entire world
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:24.200
  • changed.
  • 00:02:24.200 --> 00:02:25.060
  • Bad enough to grieve.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:28.210
  • Bad enough to give up the person
  • 00:02:28.210 --> 00:02:30.110
  • you slept with every night and
  • 00:02:30.110 --> 00:02:31.260
  • held every night and whispered
  • 00:02:31.260 --> 00:02:33.130
  • secrets in their ear, theirs and
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:34.240
  • yours, and you knew each other
  • 00:02:34.240 --> 00:02:36.150
  • till you had a rhythm together.
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:38.030
  • That's bad enough, but it is
  • 00:02:38.030 --> 00:02:41.030
  • harder to grieve hungry, nowhere
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:47.020
  • to go, no place to move.
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:50.140
  • Such was the case with this
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:51.140
  • woman, and when she finally sees
  • 00:02:51.140 --> 00:02:53.080
  • the prophet, she throws it in
  • 00:02:53.080 --> 00:02:54.240
  • his face.
  • 00:02:54.240 --> 00:02:55.180
  • "You know who my husband was.
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:59.070
  • You know, you know, you know.
  • 00:02:59.070 --> 00:03:01.020
  • You know how faithful and loyal
  • 00:03:01.020 --> 00:03:02.210
  • he was, and he died and now we
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:07.030
  • are in such debt."

  • Anybody in debt in here?
  • 00:03:09.270 --> 00:03:12.270
  • This might be your message this
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:14.010
  • morning, because this woman is
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:17.130
  • down so low she can't get up.
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:19.160
  • She can't figure out how to get
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:20.270
  • up, and she's in trouble, and
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:22.250
  • she's about to lose everything,
  • 00:03:22.250 --> 00:03:25.000
  • and then a prophet stops by to
  • 00:03:25.000 --> 00:03:26.280
  • see her and it changes her
  • 00:03:26.280 --> 00:03:28.240
  • entire life, and the prophet so
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:31.000
  • revolutionized her life that she
  • 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:33.130
  • was never the same anymore.
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:36.050
  • And he didn't give her a dollar.
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.200
  • He didn't bring anything outside
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:41.220
  • into her house.
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:42.260
  • He didn't bring a herd of cattle
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:44.200
  • home with her.
  • 00:03:44.200 --> 00:03:45.290
  • He didn't raise a garden in her
  • 00:03:45.290 --> 00:03:48.000
  • house.
  • 00:03:48.000 --> 00:03:48.230
  • He didn't come in with bags of
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:50.030
  • gold.
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.020
  • All he did was show her what she
  • 00:03:52.020 --> 00:03:55.020
  • already had.
  • 00:03:57.230 --> 00:04:00.250
  • That ought to provoke somebody
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:02.070
  • to say, "Show me what I already
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.160
  • got."
  • 00:04:03.160 --> 00:04:06.090
  • The Bible says that this woman
  • 00:04:06.090 --> 00:04:08.150
  • has been stepping over her
  • 00:04:08.150 --> 00:04:10.210
  • miracle.
  • 00:04:11.060 --> 00:04:14.060
  • She knows all about her past but
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:17.090
  • nothing about her present.
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:19.240
  • She knows about her husband and
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:21.180
  • who he was and what he did, and
  • 00:04:21.180 --> 00:04:23.040
  • she's looking at yesterday so
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:25.130
  • much, sister, that she's missing
  • 00:04:25.130 --> 00:04:27.070
  • today.
  • 00:04:27.070 --> 00:04:29.220
  • She's telling him about what
  • 00:04:29.220 --> 00:04:31.080
  • was.
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:32.050
  • He's talking to her about
  • 00:04:32.050 --> 00:04:33.070
  • what is.
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:35.030
  • She said, "My husband was.
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:37.070
  • My husband was a prophet.
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:39.060
  • My husband was faithful.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:41.060
  • My husband was here.
  • 00:04:41.060 --> 00:04:43.070
  • Now he's dead."
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.120
  • She knows what was.
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:45.180
  • She knows what will be, "They're
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:47.160
  • coming after my kids.
  • 00:04:47.160 --> 00:04:49.100
  • They're gonna make them slaves,"
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:50.260
  • but you can't get delivered out
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:53.060
  • of was faith or will-be faith.
  • 00:04:53.060 --> 00:04:55.250
  • - Bishop Jakes: So, in the
  • 00:05:01.060 --> 00:05:04.060
  • present tense of the text he
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:06.120
  • asked her, "What is in your
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:08.020
  • house now?"
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:12.080
  • Not who left you, not who didn't
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:14.230
  • raise you, not who didn't love
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:16.270
  • you.
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:17.250
  • What have you got now?
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:20.280
  • Because God will always use what
  • 00:05:20.280 --> 00:05:23.250
  • you have left.
  • 00:05:25.120 --> 00:05:28.120
  • He will never use what you lost,
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:33.030
  • so weep no longer at the

  • graveside of what you lost, nor

  • mourn with salty tears the
  • 00:05:39.280 --> 00:05:42.280
  • blessing you didn't get.
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:45.100
  • And the prophet came by not to
  • 00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:48.010
  • give her the miracle, shwoop,
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:51.180
  • but to show her the miracle.
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:55.220
  • She thinks she has nothing.
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:58.120
  • You'd be surprised.

  • have-nots get to watch the haves
  • 00:06:07.130 --> 00:06:09.210
  • on TV, and it brings them to the
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:17.260
  • point that they think that they
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:18.270
  • have nothing.

  • have short hair.
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:45.200
  • You gotta have long hair.

  • Hey, hey, I got something, baby.
  • 00:06:55.120 --> 00:06:57.180
  • If you don't get it, shame on
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:59.000
  • you, but I got something.
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:07:01.110
  • You missed it.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:02.140
  • I got something.

  • drives.

  • Say it again, "I got something."
  • 00:07:22.140 --> 00:07:25.140

  • of telling him, "I have
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:29.040
  • nothing."
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:31.080
  • Look at how low she thought, how
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:35.240
  • much more faith she had in
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:38.020
  • negativity than positivity.
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:41.210
  • "I'm getting ready to sell my
  • 00:07:41.210 --> 00:07:44.030
  • boys.
  • 00:07:44.030 --> 00:07:46.000
  • They're gonna be slaves."
  • 00:07:46.000 --> 00:07:47.170
  • They weren't, but she was
  • 00:07:47.170 --> 00:07:49.090
  • confessing negativity.
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:53.070
  • Her muscles of faith were so
  • 00:07:53.070 --> 00:07:55.010
  • weak that when the prophet came
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:58.010
  • to her, she says to him, "I got
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:08:00.150
  • nothing."
  • 00:08:00.150 --> 00:08:02.290
  • And she raised it a little bit.
  • 00:08:02.290 --> 00:08:04.030
  • She said, "A little jar of oil
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:08.070
  • back in the back.
  • 00:08:08.070 --> 00:08:10.100
  • That's all I got."
  • 00:08:12.150 --> 00:08:15.150
  • And the prophet doesn't even ask
  • 00:08:15.150 --> 00:08:18.050
  • her for the oil.
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:22.100
  • He tells the woman, who is in
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:24.050
  • debt, to go get in more debt.
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:30.100
  • - Bishop Jakes: He says, "You
  • 00:08:38.170 --> 00:08:40.090
  • are not taking enough risk for
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:43.140
  • God to help you."
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:48.180
  • Did you hear that?
  • 00:08:48.180 --> 00:08:49.240
  • That was good right there.
  • 00:08:49.240 --> 00:08:50.160
  • Wasn't that good?
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:51.170
  • That was good, because God is
  • 00:08:52.140 --> 00:08:55.140
  • with the risk taker, not the
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:58.290
  • wisher, not the dreamer.
  • 00:08:59.230 --> 00:09:02.250
  • The risk taker.
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:04.160
  • He said, "You're broke because
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:05.170
  • you haven't taken enough risk.
  • 00:09:05.170 --> 00:09:08.170
  • You're broke because--"
  • 00:09:08.170 --> 00:09:09.090
  • My daughter wrote the book
  • 00:09:09.090 --> 00:09:10.070
  • "Don't Settle for Safe."
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:12.150
  • "You are broke because you
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:13.150
  • played safe."
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:17.120
  • Yeah now.
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:22.070
  • He says, "Get your sons that you
  • 00:09:22.070 --> 00:09:24.130
  • prepared for slavery and put 'em
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:26.210
  • to work.
  • 00:09:26.210 --> 00:09:29.150
  • I want your sons to go and
  • 00:09:29.220 --> 00:09:32.220
  • borrow from your neighbors,"
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:34.160
  • that's more debt, "borrow from
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:36.050
  • your neighbors as many vessels
  • 00:09:36.050 --> 00:09:38.130
  • as you can."
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:40.260
  • But it's not just more debt he
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:42.040
  • put 'em in.
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:42.290
  • It's debt that has a strategy.
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:50.120
  • He said, "Because when you bring
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:52.000
  • more capacity, God's
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:55.150
  • gonna flow."
  • 00:09:56.260 --> 00:09:59.260
  • You're not in enough trouble.
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:05.260
  • Says when you really get out
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:08.090
  • there where you can't do it
  • 00:10:08.090 --> 00:10:10.120
  • without him, that's when you're
  • 00:10:11.030 --> 00:10:14.030
  • gonna get some help, okay?
  • 00:10:15.150 --> 00:10:18.150
  • She borrowed all those vessels
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:21.210
  • and then the oil responded to
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:26.210
  • capacity.
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:28.220
  • This principle is also seen in
  • 00:10:28.220 --> 00:10:30.060
  • the text where he tells the
  • 00:10:30.060 --> 00:10:31.070
  • prophet to, "Dig ditches in your
  • 00:10:31.070 --> 00:10:32.210
  • valley," because God is
  • 00:10:32.210 --> 00:10:35.130
  • attracted to capacity.
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:39.210
  • He will fill whatever you will
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:42.210
  • - male: I served in Iraq in
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:54.090
  • Operation Iraqi Freedom.
  • 00:10:54.090 --> 00:10:56.190
  • We were losing a lot of guys
  • 00:10:56.190 --> 00:10:57.280
  • there in the--during the spring
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:59.110
  • of 2004.
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:00.190
  • We were in Baghdad, Iraq.
  • 00:11:00.190 --> 00:11:01.290
  • There was a soldier that had
  • 00:11:01.290 --> 00:11:02.240
  • gotten bad news, and so he had
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:05.000
  • his M16, and he was walking
  • 00:11:05.000 --> 00:11:07.110
  • around the camp, and he was just
  • 00:11:07.110 --> 00:11:10.100
  • shouting and hollering, and he
  • 00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:11.140
  • was just shooting in the air.
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:12.260
  • There were other service
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:14.070
  • members, for the safety of the
  • 00:11:14.210 --> 00:11:17.210
  • unit, that considered the option
  • 00:11:17.210 --> 00:11:19.120
  • of killing him.
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:20.210
  • I didn't think it had to go that
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:21.170
  • way.
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:22.110
  • - Bishop Jakes: When the
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:22.280
  • pressures of life push you to
  • 00:11:22.280 --> 00:11:24.040
  • your limit, God will give you
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:27.040
  • the strength you need.
  • 00:11:27.040 --> 00:11:28.220
  • - male: By God's grace, from a
  • 00:11:28.220 --> 00:11:30.180
  • distance, I was able to talk to
  • 00:11:30.180 --> 00:11:32.250
  • the gentleman, just expressing
  • 00:11:32.250 --> 00:11:34.160
  • how God still loved him, and
  • 00:11:34.160 --> 00:11:36.040
  • what you see in that moment is
  • 00:11:36.040 --> 00:11:37.080
  • that pain and anger can really
  • 00:11:37.080 --> 00:11:38.170
  • blind you and that happens over
  • 00:11:38.170 --> 00:11:40.170
  • there, but we were able to
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:42.010
  • diffuse that situation.
  • 00:11:42.010 --> 00:11:43.290
  • He was a young soul that was one
  • 00:11:43.290 --> 00:11:46.200
  • day gonna be somebody.
  • 00:11:46.200 --> 00:11:48.050
  • - Bishop Jakes: God will take
  • 00:11:48.050 --> 00:11:48.280
  • life's pressures and turn them
  • 00:11:48.280 --> 00:11:51.030
  • - Bishop Jakes: Now, this other
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:11:57.230
  • sister over here--I'm coming
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:11:59.230
  • over to y'all's way.
  • 00:11:59.230 --> 00:12:00.200
  • I got you.
  • 00:12:00.230 --> 00:12:03.230
  • This sister's rich.
  • 00:12:03.260 --> 00:12:06.260
  • She's so rich, the Bible says
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:08.240
  • she's rich.
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:10.190
  • When God say you're rich, you're
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:13.230
  • rich.
  • 00:12:13.230 --> 00:12:15.210
  • When people say you're rich, it
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:16.230
  • just means you got more money
  • 00:12:16.230 --> 00:12:17.260
  • than them.
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:19.270
  • By somebody's standard,
  • 00:12:19.270 --> 00:12:21.080
  • everybody in the room is rich,
  • 00:12:22.260 --> 00:12:25.260
  • 'cause rich is a relative term,
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:28.060
  • but I trust when the owner of
  • 00:12:28.060 --> 00:12:29.270
  • heaven and Earth says you're
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:32.150
  • rich, you're rich.
  • 00:12:33.140 --> 00:12:36.140
  • She's real good, and I know
  • 00:12:36.140 --> 00:12:37.150
  • she's rich because she has a
  • 00:12:37.150 --> 00:12:39.260
  • husband, she has a house, she
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:45.020
  • takes on a building project to
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:47.260
  • add a room on a roof, a
  • 00:12:47.260 --> 00:12:50.180
  • second-story suite for a
  • 00:12:52.000 --> 00:12:55.000
  • prophet, because she says he's a
  • 00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:58.020
  • man of God.
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:13:00.040
  • And they build a room for him.
  • 00:13:01.050 --> 00:13:04.050
  • That other woman couldn't build
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:04.290
  • no room.
  • 00:13:04.290 --> 00:13:07.230
  • They got a bed, a chair, and a
  • 00:13:10.290 --> 00:13:13.290
  • table and put it in his room in
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:17.090
  • case he comes by.
  • 00:13:21.060 --> 00:13:24.060
  • Don't get it twisted.
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:25.000
  • He doesn't live there.
  • 00:13:25.000 --> 00:13:27.120
  • "But peradventure he should
  • 00:13:27.120 --> 00:13:30.060
  • decide to grace us with his
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:33.010
  • presence, we want to make sure

  • that the accommodations are
  • 00:13:35.080 --> 00:13:36.160

  • caliber.
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:40.050
  • Seeing as he is of the upper
  • 00:13:40.050 --> 00:13:41.190
  • echelon of prophets, it would
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:44.010
  • only be appropriate for us to
  • 00:13:44.010 --> 00:13:46.150
  • avail him with the type of life
  • 00:13:48.110 --> 00:13:51.110
  • that would be reflective of who
  • 00:13:51.110 --> 00:13:52.260
  • we are in this society."
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:56.050
  • These are rich folk.
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:58.050
  • They good.
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:13:59.290
  • Don't need nothing.
  • 00:13:59.290 --> 00:14:02.100
  • Elijah is laying in the lap of
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:06.080
  • luxury, taking it easy.
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:11.260
  • She has so blessed him and asked
  • 00:14:13.210 --> 00:14:16.210
  • for nothing.
  • 00:14:16.210 --> 00:14:19.170
  • God can't stand for you to keep
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:23.100
  • blessing him and ask for

  • nothing.
  • 00:14:26.240 --> 00:14:29.240
  • She is so generous that her
  • 00:14:29.240 --> 00:14:31.270
  • generosity has put a demand on
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:35.000
  • God.
  • 00:14:35.000 --> 00:14:36.030
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:14:36.030 --> 00:14:38.180
  • I told you the liberal soul
  • 00:14:38.180 --> 00:14:40.210
  • shall be made fat.
  • 00:14:40.210 --> 00:14:42.270
  • God said, "I can't just keep
  • 00:14:42.270 --> 00:14:44.270
  • receiving from you, because if I
  • 00:14:44.270 --> 00:14:47.240
  • keep receiving from you and
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.110
  • don't give back to you, that
  • 00:14:49.110 --> 00:14:51.090
  • makes you God.
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:54.110
  • I can't let you be my provider,

  • so whatever you give me,
  • 00:14:57.280 --> 00:15:00.180

  • [speaking in tongues].
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:04.010
  • Hey, hey, hey, I got to give it

  • you mess up my brand like I
  • 00:15:08.170 --> 00:15:10.290

  • 00:15:22.230 --> 00:15:25.230
  • So, the prophet is now

  • uncomfortable in the bed,
  • 00:15:27.200 --> 00:15:30.200
  • because he says to his servant,

  • "Don't she need something?

  • 00:15:47.190 --> 00:15:49.040
  • She good.
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:51.000
  • She doesn't need anything.
  • 00:15:51.000 --> 00:15:52.160
  • "Bring her here to me.
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:53.130
  • Woman, can I do anything for

  • 00:15:55.010 --> 00:15:56.030

  • Maybe you don't need stuff.
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:08.160
  • Maybe you need influence."
  • 00:16:08.160 --> 00:16:11.110
  • "I know him."
  • 00:16:15.080 --> 00:16:18.080
  • Then the servant says to Elijah,
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:20.240
  • "The only thing that she doesn't
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:23.060
  • have is that she does not have a
  • 00:16:23.170 --> 00:16:26.170
  • child."
  • 00:16:27.010 --> 00:16:30.010
  • She does not have a child.
  • 00:16:34.070 --> 00:16:37.070
  • She does not have a child, and
  • 00:16:39.170 --> 00:16:42.170
  • her husband is old.
  • 00:16:48.180 --> 00:16:51.180
  • Finally, Elijah says, "I can do
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:53.130
  • something, because I have found
  • 00:16:55.070 --> 00:16:58.070
  • something, because I have found
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:17:00.240
  • - Bishop Jakes: I can't bless
  • 00:17:04.020 --> 00:17:07.020
  • nothing that don't have a gap.
  • 00:17:07.020 --> 00:17:09.290
  • I have found a gap.
  • 00:17:09.290 --> 00:17:12.050
  • I have found something that she
  • 00:17:12.050 --> 00:17:14.090
  • cannot do for herself.
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:17.140
  • I have discovered her poverty."
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:20.240
  • Now I wanna stand in between
  • 00:17:20.240 --> 00:17:22.210
  • these two women, because
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:25.000
  • standing in between these two
  • 00:17:25.000 --> 00:17:26.070
  • women is interesting.
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:28.090
  • Here is the dilemma.
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:30.100
  • When I started looking at this
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:31.220
  • first woman, I thought she was
  • 00:17:31.220 --> 00:17:34.010
  • poor, but after dealing with the
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:37.030
  • rich woman, I discovered the
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:39.100
  • poor woman was rich.
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:44.150
  • The poor woman is rich because
  • 00:17:44.150 --> 00:17:47.000
  • The poor woman is rich because
  • 00:17:47.000 --> 00:17:52.080
  • - Bishop Jakes: The rich woman
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:59.050
  • would give everything she had to
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:02.090
  • have the two boys that the poor
  • 00:18:02.090 --> 00:18:05.040
  • have the two boys that the poor
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:07.280
  • - Bishop Jakes: The poor woman
  • 00:18:13.020 --> 00:18:16.020
  • is a mother.
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:21.070
  • She is a mother.
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:24.120
  • She has brought life into the
  • 00:18:24.120 --> 00:18:25.260
  • world.
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:27.080
  • She has collaborated with God.
  • 00:18:27.080 --> 00:18:29.240
  • She has seen the fruits of that
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.080
  • collaboration.
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:32.270
  • She has affected the next
  • 00:18:32.270 --> 00:18:34.020
  • generation.
  • 00:18:34.020 --> 00:18:35.120
  • She has children.
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:37.140
  • Her seed run up to her and call
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:40.060
  • her blessed.
  • 00:18:40.060 --> 00:18:42.040
  • She might not be dressed up and
  • 00:18:42.040 --> 00:18:43.150
  • she might not be fancy, but she
  • 00:18:43.150 --> 00:18:45.250
  • is loved, loved in the way that
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:49.130
  • only a child can love you.
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:51.280
  • You have not been loved till a
  • 00:18:51.280 --> 00:18:53.100
  • child loves you.
  • 00:18:53.100 --> 00:18:55.030
  • You can spank a child, and
  • 00:18:55.030 --> 00:18:56.140
  • they'll come back and say, "Oh,
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:57.080
  • Daddy, I love you.
  • 00:18:57.080 --> 00:18:58.280
  • I forgive you."
  • 00:18:58.280 --> 00:19:00.060
  • She has love, and now I
  • 00:19:00.060 --> 00:19:03.020
  • recognize that the poor woman is
  • 00:19:05.120 --> 00:19:08.120
  • not as poor as I thought, and
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:13.000
  • this rich woman is not as rich
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:18.090
  • as I thought.
  • 00:19:18.090 --> 00:19:20.090
  • We let our little cars and our
  • 00:19:20.090 --> 00:19:22.120
  • little stuff fool us into
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:25.040
  • thinking, we let our stuff fool
  • 00:19:25.040 --> 00:19:27.210
  • us into thinking that if you got
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:30.110
  • stuff, you don't need anything.
  • 00:19:34.250 --> 00:19:37.250
  • That if you don't have things
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:43.100
  • then you need Jesus, but if you
  • 00:19:49.290 --> 00:19:52.290
  • got stuff, "Good morning.
  • 00:19:54.200 --> 00:19:57.200
  • How are you?
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:19:59.080
  • I'm not gonna tell you about
  • 00:19:59.080 --> 00:20:00.020
  • Jesus 'cause you look like
  • 00:20:00.020 --> 00:20:01.060
  • you're doing fine."
  • 00:20:03.270 --> 00:20:06.270
  • And they don't know that late in
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:16.000
  • the midnight hour, this woman is
  • 00:20:16.000 --> 00:20:18.240
  • crying just like this woman is
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:21.150
  • crying.
  • 00:20:21.150 --> 00:20:23.030
  • This woman needs God just like
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:25.030
  • this woman needs God.
  • 00:20:25.030 --> 00:20:26.270
  • This woman has a gap just like
  • 00:20:26.270 --> 00:20:29.000
  • this woman has a gap.
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:30.200
  • They are two different shades of
  • 00:20:30.200 --> 00:20:32.200
  • pain, and Elijah represents the
  • 00:20:33.010 --> 00:20:36.010
  • God who stands in the gap.
  • 00:20:37.200 --> 00:20:40.200
  • The reason I like this text is
  • 00:20:40.200 --> 00:20:43.050
  • because these two women's
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:44.160
  • stories are butted up against
  • 00:20:44.160 --> 00:20:46.050
  • each other, and the same God
  • 00:20:46.140 --> 00:20:49.140
  • that stepped into her house and
  • 00:20:49.140 --> 00:20:51.220
  • said, "I'm gonna make something
  • 00:20:51.220 --> 00:20:53.040
  • flow that wasn't flowing," is
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:55.250
  • the same God that stepped into
  • 00:20:55.250 --> 00:20:58.010
  • her house and said, "I know your
  • 00:20:58.010 --> 00:20:59.220
  • husband is old, and I know he's
  • 00:20:59.220 --> 00:21:01.250
  • lost his flow, but I'm gonna
  • 00:21:01.250 --> 00:21:03.260
  • start a flow in his body, just
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:06.170
  • like I started a flow in her
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:08.250
  • jar, and both of you are gonna
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:10.250
  • be blessed, pressed down, shaken
  • 00:21:10.250 --> 00:21:13.230
  • together, and running over."
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:15.290
  • Because whatever you want,
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:17.200
  • whatever you need, whatever you
  • 00:21:17.200 --> 00:21:19.230
  • lack, whatever you're craving
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:21.240
  • for, God's got it, and I came to
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:25.020
  • tell you this morning whether
  • 00:21:25.020 --> 00:21:27.160
  • you are black, or white, or
  • 00:21:27.160 --> 00:21:29.140
  • Republican, or Democrat, or
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:31.170
  • rich, or poor, or high, or low,
  • 00:21:31.260 --> 00:21:34.260
  • whatever you need, God is a gap
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:40.140
  • filler.
  • 00:21:40.140 --> 00:21:41.230
  • Open your mouth and give him
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:44.020
  • Open your mouth and give him

  • [congregation cheering]
  • 00:21:46.180 --> 00:21:54.020
  • - Bishop Jakes: So, get me my
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:22:00.270
  • pot of oil.
  • 00:22:00.270 --> 00:22:02.050
  • I want my oil, 'cause I want you

  • Anybody with me this morning?
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:12.210
  • See, I don't know whether they

  • got my oil.
  • 00:22:13.190 --> 00:22:14.070
  • I told 'em to bring me some oil,

  • you--yeah, bring me some oil.
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:19.130
  • And where is my pot I can pour

  • it in?
  • 00:22:21.030 --> 00:22:21.240

  • I want you to put it up here.

  • Put it on this table.
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.060
  • I want 'em to understand.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:29.110
  • I want 'em to understand.

  • I'm talking about in your

  • circumstance.
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:50.110
  • I'm talking about in your

  • situation.
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:52.190
  • It's gonna be a flow.
  • 00:22:52.190 --> 00:22:54.200
  • That that was stagnant, that
  • 00:22:54.260 --> 00:22:57.260
  • that was not moving, that that
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:23:00.020
  • was not working, that that
  • 00:23:00.020 --> 00:23:02.040
  • you've been stepping over and
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:03.130
  • saying it ain't never gonna be
  • 00:23:03.130 --> 00:23:04.170
  • nothing, that that the devil
  • 00:23:04.170 --> 00:23:06.170
  • told you wasn't enough to get
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:08.050
  • the job done, God said, "In the
  • 00:23:08.050 --> 00:23:10.040
  • time of need I'm gonna create a
  • 00:23:10.040 --> 00:23:12.130
  • flow."
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:20.160
  • And the power is always in the
  • 00:23:21.200 --> 00:23:24.200
  • flow.
  • 00:23:24.200 --> 00:23:25.200
  • Now, you gotta get this, 'cause
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:26.230
  • I want you to see the power of
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:27.190
  • the miracle.
  • 00:23:27.190 --> 00:23:29.190
  • He didn't change the size of the
  • 00:23:29.190 --> 00:23:31.200
  • container.
  • 00:23:31.200 --> 00:23:34.070
  • He changed the amount of the
  • 00:23:34.070 --> 00:23:35.140
  • flow, because God's glory always
  • 00:23:36.090 --> 00:23:39.090
  • increases when you are
  • 00:23:39.090 --> 00:23:41.030
  • increases when you are
  • 00:23:41.030 --> 00:23:43.180
  • - Bishop Jakes: It was two fish
  • 00:23:48.250 --> 00:23:51.250
  • and five loaves of bread till he
  • 00:23:51.250 --> 00:23:54.050
  • broke it, but the more he broke
  • 00:23:54.050 --> 00:23:56.150
  • it, the more it multiplied.
  • 00:23:56.150 --> 00:23:59.070
  • It was a small pot of oil, but
  • 00:23:59.070 --> 00:24:01.230
  • the more she poured it, the more
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:04.090
  • it multiplied.
  • 00:24:04.090 --> 00:24:05.140
  • You need to pour yourself into
  • 00:24:05.140 --> 00:24:07.050
  • something.
  • 00:24:07.050 --> 00:24:08.000
  • You need to pour yourself out.
  • 00:24:08.000 --> 00:24:10.000
  • You need to stop measuring
  • 00:24:10.000 --> 00:24:11.140
  • yourself while it's not
  • 00:24:11.140 --> 00:24:12.180
  • happening, because when you
  • 00:24:12.180 --> 00:24:14.070
  • stretch yourself--pull on your
  • 00:24:15.160 --> 00:24:18.160
  • neighbor and say, "Stretch
  • 00:24:18.160 --> 00:24:19.210
  • yourself."
  • 00:24:19.210 --> 00:24:21.190
  • When you stretch yourself, God
  • 00:24:21.190 --> 00:24:24.060
  • will get in the flow.
  • 00:24:24.060 --> 00:24:26.080
  • He will get in the flow, and
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:28.110
  • whatever you come up against,

  • this, too."
  • 00:24:31.110 --> 00:24:34.050
  • And if they need you over here,
  • 00:24:34.050 --> 00:24:35.270
  • he said you can fill this, too.
  • 00:24:35.270 --> 00:24:38.060
  • And you know why you can fill
  • 00:24:38.060 --> 00:24:39.060
  • it?
  • 00:24:39.060 --> 00:24:40.160
  • 'Cause you got something.
