  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: Let's
  • 00:00:07.240 --> 00:00:08.110
  • pray, Father, I thank you for
  • 00:00:08.110 --> 00:00:10.070
  • the opportunity to share the
  • 00:00:10.070 --> 00:00:12.250
  • Word with the people of God.
  • 00:00:12.250 --> 00:00:15.030
  • I pray that the Word would be
  • 00:00:15.030 --> 00:00:16.030
  • made flesh while it is being
  • 00:00:16.030 --> 00:00:17.270
  • preached, and that people would
  • 00:00:17.270 --> 00:00:20.040
  • be blessed and strengthened.
  • 00:00:20.040 --> 00:00:21.290
  • Give me nimbleness of thought
  • 00:00:21.290 --> 00:00:23.130
  • and clarity of mind that I might
  • 00:00:23.130 --> 00:00:24.290
  • effectively espouse the Word of
  • 00:00:24.290 --> 00:00:26.270
  • God to the people of God.
  • 00:00:26.270 --> 00:00:29.040
  • I thank you, Lord, because I
  • 00:00:29.040 --> 00:00:30.110
  • know that wolves cannot eat
  • 00:00:30.110 --> 00:00:32.270
  • sheep food, so somebody will
  • 00:00:33.030 --> 00:00:36.030
  • starve this morning, so that
  • 00:00:36.100 --> 00:00:39.100
  • somebody might be fed.
  • 00:00:39.100 --> 00:00:41.250
  • Feed the flock of God of which
  • 00:00:41.250 --> 00:00:44.160
  • the Holy Ghost has made me
  • 00:00:44.160 --> 00:00:46.020
  • overseer, and I thank you for
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:48.020
  • what you're about to do, in
  • 00:00:48.020 --> 00:00:50.200
  • Jesus' name, somebody shout
  • 00:00:50.200 --> 00:00:53.000
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:09.130
  • - Bishop Jakes: Jesus goes back
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:16.070
  • down to the Jordan because he
  • 00:01:16.210 --> 00:01:19.210
  • has just been fighting with the
  • 00:01:19.210 --> 00:01:22.140
  • Pharisees who have called him a
  • 00:01:23.010 --> 00:01:26.010
  • But he knew, "I am," not what
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:37.050
  • you say I am, not what the
  • 00:01:37.170 --> 00:01:40.170
  • circumstances in my life look
  • 00:01:40.170 --> 00:01:43.010
  • like I am, not who my friends
  • 00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:47.080
  • are, not who my enemies are, I
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:52.270
  • am who God says I am.
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:55.230
  • So, I picked out three things
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:57.010
  • that I really wanna focus on,
  • 00:01:57.110 --> 00:02:00.130
  • and I want to really express
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:01.250
  • them.
  • 00:02:01.250 --> 00:02:02.140
  • The first one, he says, "I and
  • 00:02:02.140 --> 00:02:04.010
  • my Father are one," so he says,
  • 00:02:04.010 --> 00:02:05.230
  • "I am one with the Father."
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:10.120
  • "I am one with the Father."
  • 00:02:10.120 --> 00:02:13.060
  • This is what they got ready to
  • 00:02:13.060 --> 00:02:15.090
  • stone him for, because he was
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:19.170
  • basically saying I am God.
  • 00:02:21.090 --> 00:02:24.090
  • And they said--they got ready to
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:26.010
  • stone him, and Jesus said, "For
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:27.020
  • which one of my miracles or the
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:29.010
  • good works that I do are you
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:30.200
  • going to stone me?"
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:31.190
  • They said, "We're not stoning
  • 00:02:31.190 --> 00:02:32.150
  • you for the good works you did,
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:33.130
  • we're stoning you for the
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:34.280
  • blasphemy of saying that you are
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:37.210
  • God."
  • 00:02:37.210 --> 00:02:38.240
  • And Jesus quoted a Scripture and
  • 00:02:38.240 --> 00:02:40.110
  • said, "Did not the Word refer to
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:42.140
  • those who hear the Word as being
  • 00:02:42.140 --> 00:02:44.210
  • gods?"
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:47.140
  • Gods, small g, but still gods.
  • 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:53.280
  • Over your choices, your
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:56.260
  • decisions, right now, you are
  • 00:02:57.130 --> 00:03:00.150
  • where you are because of the
  • 00:03:00.150 --> 00:03:02.170
  • When I started writing about
  • 00:03:10.230 --> 00:03:12.240
  • entrepreneurship, I thought I
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:14.110
  • was just writing to people who
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.220
  • have a business with an address,
  • 00:03:15.220 --> 00:03:17.160
  • or a location, or a vision, and
  • 00:03:17.160 --> 00:03:19.270
  • suddenly, I began to recognize
  • 00:03:19.270 --> 00:03:21.100
  • that entrepreneurship is not
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:23.020
  • about a business alone, it's
  • 00:03:23.020 --> 00:03:25.090
  • really about a mindset where you
  • 00:03:25.090 --> 00:03:26.260
  • It's where you take ownership
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:32.190
  • and where you become the CEO
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:35.170
  • over you, and stop allowing
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:38.120
  • other people to control your
  • 00:03:38.120 --> 00:03:39.200
  • worth, your destiny, your
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:42.200
  • presence, your purpose, and your
  • 00:03:42.200 --> 00:03:45.020
  • value.
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:47.210
  • I am through allowing your
  • 00:03:47.210 --> 00:03:50.030
  • presence in the building to
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.180
  • affect my attitude, where I
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:54.220
  • can't do what I was created to
  • 00:03:54.220 --> 00:03:56.220
  • do because you came in the room.
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:04:00.120
  • I am taking back control over my
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:04.020
  • environment.
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:05.160
  • I will not be angry because you
  • 00:04:05.160 --> 00:04:07.210
  • came in the door, that's too
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:09.180
  • much power to give to somebody I
  • 00:04:09.180 --> 00:04:12.140
  • So, I am the CEO of me.
  • 00:04:17.050 --> 00:04:20.050
  • Y'all don't hear what I'm
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:20.220
  • saying.
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:22.090
  • That was better than you
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:23.140
  • shouted, maybe it'll get you
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:24.250
  • when you get home.
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:27.130
  • Jesus says, "I and my Father are
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:31.190
  • one."
  • 00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:33.000
  • I am not centered by what you
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:35.000
  • say.
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:37.050
  • I am not campaigning to get you
  • 00:04:37.050 --> 00:04:40.020
  • to change your mind.
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:42.170
  • I'm not gonna spend the rest of
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:43.280
  • my life trying to prove to you
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:46.030
  • that I am not a devil.
  • 00:04:46.030 --> 00:04:49.000
  • See, some of you cannot be happy
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:50.170
  • today because your goal in life
  • 00:04:50.170 --> 00:04:53.110
  • is to change somebody's mind
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:55.160
  • who's not even thinking about
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:56.130
  • You didn't get the car 'cause
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:01.180
  • you liked the car, you got the
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:03.150
  • car to drive past your
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:05.140
  • ex-husbands house, so he could
  • 00:05:05.140 --> 00:05:07.170
  • see the car, and he's not even
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:09.250
  • at home.
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:12.100
  • You're busy trying to respond to
  • 00:05:12.100 --> 00:05:14.260
  • somebody that really doesn't
  • 00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:16.200
  • matter.
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:17.130
  • You don't have to be one with
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:18.130
  • people, you ought to be
  • 00:05:18.130 --> 00:05:20.040
  • Jesus said, "I am one with the
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:32.140
  • Father," and he means more than
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:33.280
  • I am one in the sense that we
  • 00:05:33.280 --> 00:05:36.030
  • want to be one with God, he
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:37.240
  • means in his essence, in his
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:40.160
  • deity, in his presence.
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:42.230
  • The Bible will later say that he
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:43.290
  • thought it not robbery to be
  • 00:05:43.290 --> 00:05:45.020
  • equal with God and made of
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:46.090
  • himself no reputation.
  • 00:05:46.090 --> 00:05:48.150
  • Later, Jesus will say, "If you
  • 00:05:48.150 --> 00:05:49.220
  • have seen me, you have seen the
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:51.240
  • Father, for I am in the Father,
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:54.130
  • and the Father is in me."
  • 00:05:54.130 --> 00:05:56.230
  • You say you worship God, but
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:05:59.030
  • then when God walks in the midst
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:00.290
  • of you, you reject him.
  • 00:06:00.290 --> 00:06:03.090
  • He said if you really love the
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:05.000
  • Father, you would have to love
  • 00:06:05.000 --> 00:06:06.140
  • me, because the Father dwelleth
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:08.090
  • And when the one God who is
  • 00:06:12.190 --> 00:06:13.270
  • above you decided to come to
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.100
  • you, he came in the person of
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:17.180
  • Jesus Christ.
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:21.220
  • If you want to best understand
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:22.230
  • the relationship between Christ
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:24.120
  • and God, next time you have a
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:26.250
  • glass of water, put some ice in
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:28.220
  • And figure out which one of
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:41.170
  • You could look at the glass and
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:57.290
  • say the ice is in the water, but
  • 00:06:59.050 --> 00:07:02.070
  • if you look at it long enough,
  • 00:07:02.070 --> 00:07:03.200
  • you'd have to say but the
  • 00:07:03.200 --> 00:07:05.090
  • water--
  • 00:07:05.090 --> 00:07:06.120
  • - Bishop Jakes: If you don't
  • 00:07:10.280 --> 00:07:11.170
  • And if you don't understand
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:37.230
  • that, then put it on the stove
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:40.160
  • and boil it, and when it turns
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:43.260
  • How can one element be three
  • 00:07:52.220 --> 00:07:55.100
  • things at the same time and
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:58.010
  • still be one?
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.240
  • It happens in your kitchen every
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:02.180
  • God shows up in your kitchen
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:19.290
  • every morning between your ice
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:24.030
  • machine, your water spigot, and
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:27.060
  • Identifiable in three distinct,
  • 00:08:35.110 --> 00:08:38.020
  • unique, definable entities, but
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:45.110
  • to the chemist, it's all H2O.
  • 00:08:46.130 --> 00:08:49.130
  • Jesus said, "I am one with the
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:52.060
  • Father, pay this flesh no mind.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:58.040
  • It's just what the Father is
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:09:00.290
  • housed in."
  • 00:09:00.290 --> 00:09:03.000
  • Emmanuel.
  • 00:09:03.000 --> 00:09:05.170
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:09:05.170 --> 00:09:06.190
  • See, we have raised a generation
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.150
  • of people who know a lot about
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:21.090
  • church.
  • 00:09:21.090 --> 00:09:23.200
  • They know when to wear white,
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:25.270
  • they know where the ushers are
  • 00:09:25.270 --> 00:09:26.260
  • supposed to stand, they know
  • 00:09:26.260 --> 00:09:28.020
  • where the deacons sit.
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:30.070
  • They know what time service
  • 00:09:30.070 --> 00:09:31.130
  • starts, and they know all kinds
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:32.250
  • of stuff about church, but they
  • 00:09:32.250 --> 00:09:34.080
  • We don't preach enough about
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:41.000
  • God.
  • 00:09:41.020 --> 00:09:44.020
  • If you knew who your God was,
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:46.160
  • you'd stop running from your
  • 00:09:46.160 --> 00:09:48.000
  • I'm gonna say that again.
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:58.010
  • If you knew who your God was,
  • 00:09:58.010 --> 00:10:00.290
  • you'd stop running from your
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:02.280
  • He is the mighty God.
  • 00:10:08.130 --> 00:10:11.130
  • He is the Ancient of Days.
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:14.170
  • He is wisdom itself.
  • 00:10:14.170 --> 00:10:17.170
  • He is all power, all might, all
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:22.100
  • grace, all authority.

  • I told my son when I dropped him

  • "I didn't send you to school to
  • 00:13:11.080 --> 00:13:13.150

  • A sense of who you are is
  • 00:13:56.220 --> 00:13:57.240
  • important.

  • Good Shepherd."

  • Shepherd," and the majesty
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:23.160
  • of the text draws us to the
  • 00:14:23.160 --> 00:14:25.170
  • second sentence, for he goes on
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:27.210
  • to say that the "The good
  • 00:14:27.210 --> 00:14:28.130
  • shepherd lays down his life for
  • 00:14:28.150 --> 00:14:31.150
  • the sheep."
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:32.260
  • Which takes us to the cross, and
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:35.060
  • the power of the cross, and how
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:37.140
  • he proves the authenticity of
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:39.080
  • the statement when he goes to
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:41.030
  • the cross and lays down his life
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:45.000
  • for the sheep, instead of
  • 00:14:45.180 --> 00:14:48.180
  • substitution, takes the place
  • 00:14:48.180 --> 00:14:51.110
  • of, takes a death that was not
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:54.110
  • his, so I can have a life that
  • 00:14:54.110 --> 00:14:57.040
  • was not mine.
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:14:58.100
  • "I am the good shepherd."

  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:03.070
  • But it amazes me, because he
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:04.050
  • goes on down.
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:05.030
  • What Jesus is preoccupied with
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:06.150
  • is not so much talking about
  • 00:15:06.150 --> 00:15:07.170
  • laying down his life but giving
  • 00:15:07.170 --> 00:15:09.200
  • a distinction between the
  • 00:15:09.200 --> 00:15:12.050
  • hireling and the owner.
  • 00:15:13.280 --> 00:15:16.280
  • He says, "When the wolf comes,
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:19.160
  • the hireling flees, because they
  • 00:15:23.140 --> 00:15:26.140
  • are not his sheep.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:29.130
  • In the NIV, he said, "I own the
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:31.000
  • "I own the sheep," he's talking
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:38.050
  • about me and you.
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:40.060
  • He said I own you, you are mine.
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:45.110
  • The people I send to take care
  • 00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:46.200
  • of you, if the wolf comes, they
  • 00:15:47.060 --> 00:15:50.060
  • may run, but he says I am the
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:53.080
  • shepherd, the good shepherd, I
  • 00:15:53.080 --> 00:15:56.010
  • own the sheep.
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:15:59.000
  • My sheep, you're mine.
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:03.140
  • Everything about you, everything
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:06.110
  • you got, everything you're gonna
  • 00:16:06.110 --> 00:16:09.080
  • be, mine.
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:13.050
  • I own the grass you eat, I own
  • 00:16:13.100 --> 00:16:16.100
  • the water in the brook you drink
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:18.060
  • from, I own the wool on your
  • 00:16:18.060 --> 00:16:21.030
  • back.
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:22.210
  • I own you, you are mine, and he
  • 00:16:23.200 --> 00:16:26.200
  • says I'll prove that you are
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:27.250
  • mine.
  • 00:16:27.250 --> 00:16:29.010
  • If you are mine, you know my

  • voice, and a stranger you will
  • 00:16:35.290 --> 00:16:38.290
  • not follow.
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:40.150
  • This teaches me not to try to
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:43.280
  • Because the proof of his
  • 00:16:51.050 --> 00:16:52.070
  • ownership is in my reaction to
  • 00:16:52.140 --> 00:16:55.140
  • his Word.
  • 00:16:55.140 --> 00:16:57.290
  • If I'm preaching now and you
  • 00:16:57.290 --> 00:16:59.260
  • can't hear it, it's 'cause it
  • 00:16:59.260 --> 00:17:02.240
  • If I preach this word and you
  • 00:17:09.100 --> 00:17:12.100
  • can't get it, it's 'cause he
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:14.160
  • But I don't care if you just
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:19.080
  • came from a strip club, if I
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:22.010
  • start preaching the Word,
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:24.000
  • there's something down in your
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:25.230
  • belly that will recognize his
  • 00:17:26.060 --> 00:17:29.060
  • voice.
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:30.240
  • Oh, Lord have mercy.
  • 00:17:31.190 --> 00:17:34.190
  • You can't get drunk enough that
  • 00:17:34.190 --> 00:17:37.080
  • I can't preach you sober,
  • 00:17:37.080 --> 00:17:39.180
  • because if you belong to him,
  • 00:17:39.180 --> 00:17:42.070
  • I'm not preaching to the part
  • 00:17:42.070 --> 00:17:44.100
  • that's drunk, I'm preaching to
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:46.210
  • the part that's hungry.
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:48.260
  • And if you are his, the Holy
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:52.060
  • Ghost will sober you up.
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:54.220
  • It'll knock you out of your
  • 00:17:54.220 --> 00:17:55.240
  • seat.
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:57.060
  • It'll bring you to your knees.
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:17:59.160
  • It'll make you say yes.
  • 00:17:59.160 --> 00:18:02.050
  • It'll put tears in your eyes.
  • 00:18:02.050 --> 00:18:04.220
  • It'll put running in your feet.
  • 00:18:04.220 --> 00:18:07.070
  • It'll put clapping in your
  • 00:18:07.070 --> 00:18:08.200
  • hands.
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:09.280
  • The fact that it don't bother

  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:33.140
