  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:22.000
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: And when
  • 00:00:27.020 --> 00:00:27.230
  • it talks about fornicators and
  • 00:00:27.230 --> 00:00:29.130
  • profane, filthy people who will
  • 00:00:29.130 --> 00:00:32.080
  • do just anything, he illustrates
  • 00:00:32.080 --> 00:00:35.020
  • it, and I didn't write this.
  • 00:00:35.020 --> 00:00:36.100
  • I'm just preaching the book.
  • 00:00:36.100 --> 00:00:37.190
  • He illustrates it with a guy
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:40.170
  • named Esau.
  • 00:00:40.170 --> 00:00:43.130
  • And so I've been studying and
  • 00:00:43.130 --> 00:00:45.050
  • thinking and meditating on Esau
  • 00:00:45.050 --> 00:00:47.120
  • all week.
  • 00:00:47.120 --> 00:00:48.060
  • Esau, if you haven't been raised
  • 00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:49.220
  • in church, is not a common name.
  • 00:00:49.220 --> 00:00:52.050
  • You don't hear much talked
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:53.050
  • about.
  • 00:00:53.050 --> 00:00:53.280
  • You hear preached more about
  • 00:00:53.280 --> 00:00:55.070
  • Jacob.
  • 00:00:55.070 --> 00:00:55.290
  • Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
  • 00:00:55.290 --> 00:00:57.290
  • You hear a lot about Jacob; you
  • 00:00:57.290 --> 00:00:59.110
  • don't hear much about Esau, but
  • 00:00:59.110 --> 00:01:01.130
  • in all rights it should have
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:03.020
  • been the God of Abraham, the God
  • 00:01:03.020 --> 00:01:04.250
  • of Isaac, and the God of Esau.
  • 00:01:05.140 --> 00:01:08.140
  • Jacob wasn't supposed to be in
  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:10.030
  • the list.
  • 00:01:10.030 --> 00:01:10.260
  • It was supposed to be Esau who
  • 00:01:10.260 --> 00:01:12.270
  • was an heir not only to the
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:14.250
  • spiritual heritage of Israel but
  • 00:01:14.250 --> 00:01:17.230
  • also the financial benefits of
  • 00:01:17.230 --> 00:01:20.100
  • being the grandson of Abraham
  • 00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:22.240
  • should have fallen to Esau.
  • 00:01:22.240 --> 00:01:24.200
  • With it came the conveying of
  • 00:01:24.200 --> 00:01:26.060
  • property, rights, goods,
  • 00:01:26.060 --> 00:01:28.050
  • services, spiritual
  • 00:01:28.050 --> 00:01:29.170
  • opportunities, intellectualism,
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:31.190
  • and influence with God.
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:33.110
  • All of that was to be gained,
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:35.190
  • but Esau lost it all 'cause he
  • 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:41.000
  • was hungry.
  • 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:44.000
  • He'd been out hunting all day
  • 00:01:44.000 --> 00:01:45.280
  • and he was hungry and he came
  • 00:01:45.280 --> 00:01:47.280
  • back and his brother Jacob had a
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:51.170
  • bowl of soup, a bowl of
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:55.290
  • porridge, and because he was
  • 00:01:55.290 --> 00:01:58.120
  • hungry, Jacob made a deal with
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:05.220
  • Esau.
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:07.180
  • He kind of--I was gonna say he
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:10.170
  • tricked him but I think we give
  • 00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:11.170
  • Jacob too much credit, because
  • 00:02:11.170 --> 00:02:14.060
  • You know.
  • 00:02:19.020 --> 00:02:20.170
  • C'mon, let's just be fair.
  • 00:02:20.170 --> 00:02:23.000
  • If I tell you, you rolled up in
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:26.220
  • some big old Rolls Royce or
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:29.020
  • something and I say, "Michael,
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:30.160
  • I'll trade you this handkerchief
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:32.050
  • for that car," I didn't trick
  • 00:02:32.050 --> 00:02:34.080
  • The boy offered him some soup in
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:51.130
  • exchange for his birthright--his
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:54.040
  • birth right.
  • 00:02:54.040 --> 00:02:56.040
  • All the rights and benefits and
  • 00:02:56.040 --> 00:02:57.280
  • all of his future and all of his
  • 00:02:57.280 --> 00:02:59.230
  • destiny is being compromised for
  • 00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:03.220
  • a bowl of soup.
  • 00:03:03.220 --> 00:03:05.210
  • And Esau took it, not because
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:07.250
  • Jacob was so good at the trick,
  • 00:03:07.250 --> 00:03:09.280
  • but Esau was stupid because he
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:12.080
  • was--allowed himself to make a
  • 00:03:12.080 --> 00:03:14.210
  • permanent decision over a
  • 00:03:14.210 --> 00:03:16.250
  • And I wanna warn you against
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:24.010
  • making permanent decisions over
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:26.140
  • temporary situations.
  • 00:03:26.140 --> 00:03:29.070
  • And that's a good place for you
  • 00:03:29.070 --> 00:03:30.120
  • to write, "This too shall pass."
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:32.250
  • Hunger will pass; you'll get
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:34.250
  • another opportunity.
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:36.120
  • Frustration will pass; you'll
  • 00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:37.210
  • get another opportunity.
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:39.060
  • Loneliness will pass; you'll get
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:41.030
  • another opportunity.
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:42.250
  • But the enemy offers you a
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:44.040
  • trick.
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:45.080
  • The trick is not to be
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:46.150
  • glorified.
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:47.200
  • It's the stupidity you have to
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:48.280
  • watch out for because the trick
  • 00:03:48.280 --> 00:03:51.010
  • is really not that good when you
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:54.030
  • consider that you are giving
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:55.210
  • away your future, giving away
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:04:01.270
  • the next 30 years for the next
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:03.290
  • But what is the most disturbing
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:19.020
  • to me is not that Esau did
  • 00:04:19.110 --> 00:04:22.110
  • something stupid because if the
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.240
  • truth be told and it seldom is,
  • 00:04:25.220 --> 00:04:28.220
  • all of us in one way or another
  • 00:04:31.040 --> 00:04:34.040
  • Maybe I'm the only one.
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:44.050
  • I have done something so stupid
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:48.010
  • that I graduated magna cum laude
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:53.260
  • from Stupid University with
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:56.240
  • honors.
  • 00:04:56.240 --> 00:04:59.100
  • I appalled myself, sitting on
  • 00:04:59.160 --> 00:05:02.180
  • the side of the bed saying, "How
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:04.020
  • in the world could you do
  • 00:05:04.280 --> 00:05:07.280
  • I guess I'm the only one.
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:14.010
  • What is disturbing in the text
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:19.200
  • to me is not that Esau did
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:21.030
  • something stupid.
  • 00:05:21.030 --> 00:05:22.100
  • I'm not suggesting that my
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:23.220
  • stupidity vindicates his.
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:25.120
  • Perhaps it is the fact that
  • 00:05:25.120 --> 00:05:27.050
  • misery enjoys company that I
  • 00:05:27.050 --> 00:05:28.180
  • allowed myself to sit on the
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:30.010
  • bench with him but be that as it
  • 00:05:30.010 --> 00:05:31.190
  • may, I'm just pointing to the
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:33.040
  • fact that the human conundrum
  • 00:05:33.040 --> 00:05:35.180
  • suggests that it is very
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.070
  • difficult to be a human and live
  • 00:05:37.070 --> 00:05:38.240
  • a long life and not do something
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:42.000
  • stupid.
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:43.100
  • That's what bothers me about the
  • 00:05:43.100 --> 00:05:45.180
  • arrogance with which we talk
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:47.000
  • about other people's stupidity,
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:49.260
  • seemingly having amnesia over
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:51.260
  • our own.
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:54.230
  • I think, "Wasn't it just
  • 00:05:54.230 --> 00:05:55.160
  • yesterday?
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:58.170
  • Go in and look at your family
  • 00:05:58.170 --> 00:05:59.280
  • I didn't take my medication this
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:09.200
  • morning so it's gonna be rough.
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:12.140
  • They was rushing me, Mary Kay,
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:13.270
  • and it's gonna be rough,
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.010
  • I didn't get to take it.
  • 00:06:15.010 --> 00:06:16.050
  • But you know, Esau did something
  • 00:06:16.110 --> 00:06:19.110
  • stupid.
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:20.030
  • Now everybody in here has made a
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:22.090
  • dumb choice about something, or
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:26.120
  • someone, or some moment, and you
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:32.000
  • live with the consequences of
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:34.150
  • that decision.
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:36.050
  • Nine months later, or three
  • 00:06:36.050 --> 00:06:37.250
  • months later, or three years
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:39.230
  • later.
  • 00:06:39.230 --> 00:06:41.140
  • We all live with the
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:42.100
  • consequences of our own
  • 00:06:42.100 --> 00:06:44.130
  • stupidity.
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.270
  • What is disturbing to me about
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:47.090
  • the text is not the stupidity
  • 00:06:47.090 --> 00:06:48.260
  • with which Esau made the
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:50.010
  • decision, but it is rather that
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:52.210
  • when Esau got ready to change
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:54.190
  • it, the Bible said: "He sought
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:59.150
  • with repentance, with many
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:01.200
  • tears, and found it not."
  • 00:07:03.010 --> 00:07:06.010
  • And lost his future, not just
  • 00:07:06.040 --> 00:07:09.040
  • because he did something stupid,
  • 00:07:09.040 --> 00:07:10.270
  • but because he was unable to
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:13.240
  • change what he had set in motion
  • 00:07:13.260 --> 00:07:16.260
  • over his life.
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:19.230
  • It is that, that I wanna deal
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:21.100
  • with today.
  • 00:07:21.270 --> 00:07:24.270
  • It is not the mediocre ideology
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:27.020
  • of doing something stupid,
  • 00:07:27.020 --> 00:07:28.220
  • because that is common to all of
  • 00:07:28.220 --> 00:07:30.000
  • us, but it is the crisis of
  • 00:07:30.180 --> 00:07:33.180
  • being caught in the system of
  • 00:07:33.180 --> 00:07:36.070
  • stupidity through which you
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:37.250
  • cannot escape.
  • 00:07:37.250 --> 00:07:40.080
  • Though you seek it with many
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:42.220
  • tears, you feel trapped to
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:46.040
  • repeat the same mistake over and
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:48.080
  • over and over again, and you
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:52.040
  • don't know how to get out.
  • 00:07:53.030 --> 00:07:56.030
  • The difference between us is not
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:57.200
  • that we haven't done something
  • 00:07:57.200 --> 00:07:59.180
  • stupid, we've all admitted, but
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:02.020
  • And we keep going after the same
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:11.090
  • We keep living beyond our means,
  • 00:08:19.110 --> 00:08:21.040
  • we keep falling prey to the same
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:23.070
  • mistake and, in spite of our
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:25.140
  • desire to change it, this is the
  • 00:08:25.140 --> 00:08:28.070
  • frustration of life, to desire
  • 00:08:28.070 --> 00:08:30.230
  • to change.
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:32.090
  • It is not frustrating to be
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:33.150
  • happy to be down under but to
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:35.120
  • desire to change and not be able
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:38.020
  • to do it.
  • 00:08:38.020 --> 00:08:40.070
  • That Scripture always bothered
  • 00:08:40.070 --> 00:08:42.010
  • me that he sought repentance
  • 00:08:42.010 --> 00:08:44.150
  • with many tears and found it
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:46.140
  • not, and lost his inheritance,
  • 00:08:46.220 --> 00:08:49.220
  • and he is scarcely mentioned at
  • 00:08:49.220 --> 00:08:51.070
  • all, though he was destined to
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:54.150
  • be in the lineage of greatness.
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:57.020
  • He forfeited his greatest moment
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:59.290
  • over a bowl of soup and an

  • a pathology, of dysfunctional

  • decisions.

  • That's what this text is all
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.180
  • about.
  • 00:09:10.180 --> 00:09:13.040
  • And only a novice would take it
  • 00:09:13.040 --> 00:09:14.260
  • anywhere else.
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:17.230
  • It is there that I wanna focus
  • 00:09:17.230 --> 00:09:20.160
  • my attention because the truth
  • 00:09:20.160 --> 00:09:23.100
  • of the matter is all of us know

  • You can go back through your
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:30.140
  • whole life and see Dumb, Dumb
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:32.230
  • Junior, Dumb III, Dumb IV, Dumb
  • 00:09:35.240 --> 00:09:38.240
  • And the real funny one is the
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:54.240
  • people who have been married,
  • 00:09:54.240 --> 00:09:55.170

  • they keep marrying the same
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:09:57.080
  • person with a different name.
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:10:00.270
  • It's really funny.
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:02.290
  • It's--didn't you learn with the
  • 00:10:03.110 --> 00:10:06.110
  • first serial killer you married?
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:10.130
  • Why would you go and be
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:11.290
  • attracted to another serial
  • 00:10:11.290 --> 00:10:14.050
  • killer?
  • 00:10:14.050 --> 00:10:15.040
  • You thought you were gonna
  • 00:10:15.040 --> 00:10:15.280
  • Dumb Junior.
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:22.110
  • And what I wanted to focus on is
  • 00:10:25.250 --> 00:10:28.250
  • Esau sought repentance.
  • 00:10:28.250 --> 00:10:31.130
  • The word "repentance," metanoia
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:35.130
  • in the Greek, the word
  • 00:10:35.130 --> 00:10:37.190
  • "repentance," metanoia, means to
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:40.290
  • change your mind.
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:44.270
  • So he sought a change of mind
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:48.270
  • with many tears and found it
  • 00:10:48.270 --> 00:10:51.110
  • not.
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:54.000
  • He sought a change of
  • 00:10:54.000 --> 00:10:56.160
  • intelligence with a lot of
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:10:59.070
  • emotions and found it not.
  • 00:11:02.060 --> 00:11:05.060
  • He sought repentance with many
  • 00:11:05.060 --> 00:11:06.180
  • tears and found it not.
  • 00:11:08.010 --> 00:11:11.010
  • So an emotional response does
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:13.020
  • Have you ever seen people,
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:22.200
  • they--now, I admit I've been
  • 00:11:22.210 --> 00:11:25.210
  • dumb about this, too, because
  • 00:11:25.210 --> 00:11:27.030
  • I'm a sucker for some tears,
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:30.170
  • 'cause, generally, see, I don't
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:31.210
  • cry, only in cases of extremes.
  • 00:11:32.170 --> 00:11:35.170
  • So I'm impressed when people cry
  • 00:11:35.170 --> 00:11:38.000
  • and, assuming that they are like
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:39.080
  • me, at the point, like, if I cry
  • 00:11:39.080 --> 00:11:41.270
  • and tell you I love you, I mean,
  • 00:11:41.270 --> 00:11:43.270
  • it's bad.
  • 00:11:43.270 --> 00:11:44.240
  • I mean, you know, I'm drawing
  • 00:11:44.240 --> 00:11:46.200
  • your name on the refrigerator
  • 00:11:46.200 --> 00:11:48.040
  • and stuff, I mean, it is just
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:49.100
  • sick.
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:50.160
  • And if I get mad and start
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:52.100
  • Whoo.
  • 00:11:57.130 --> 00:11:59.110
  • See, I can't turn red, but if I
  • 00:11:59.110 --> 00:12:00.250
  • go to crying, and them tears
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:09.020
  • start running, they don't come
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:10.200
  • out the front, they come out the
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:13.050
  • side.
  • 00:12:13.050 --> 00:12:15.150
  • They run down the side, north
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:17.040
  • and south, they'd just be
  • 00:12:17.040 --> 00:12:18.100
  • running, and my eyes would be
  • 00:12:18.100 --> 00:12:20.070
  • bugging.

  • another message, and I didn't
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:53.040
  • use it, and I saved the
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:54.080
  • illustration.
  • 00:14:54.080 --> 00:14:54.270
  • I thought the illustration was
  • 00:14:54.270 --> 00:14:55.210
  • really good for what he was
  • 00:14:55.210 --> 00:14:57.130
  • talking about, and I wasn't
  • 00:14:57.130 --> 00:14:59.040
  • released to use it until now.
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:01.110
  • And maybe this will help you see
  • 00:15:02.030 --> 00:15:05.030
  • what I'm saying.
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:07.070
  • You see, if you go on a
  • 00:15:07.070 --> 00:15:09.190
  • computer, they have on a
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:11.260
  • computer what they call default
  • 00:15:11.260 --> 00:15:13.070
  • settings.
  • 00:15:13.070 --> 00:15:15.190
  • So whether you're in Microword

  • Soft or whatever it is, whatever
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:18.130
  • program it is or any kind of
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.000
  • program, it has a default.
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:22.110
  • The default sets in the computer
  • 00:15:23.040 --> 00:15:26.040
  • some principles and ideas to
  • 00:15:26.040 --> 00:15:27.230
  • which the computer is committed.
  • 00:15:27.230 --> 00:15:29.150
  • It does not mean that you can't
  • 00:15:29.150 --> 00:15:31.150
  • function outside of the default;
  • 00:15:31.150 --> 00:15:34.000
  • it just means that even if you
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:36.090
  • deviate from the default, the
  • 00:15:36.090 --> 00:15:38.100
  • computer will automatically take
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:40.290
  • you back to default settings and
  • 00:15:41.190 --> 00:15:44.190
  • if you don't want it to do that
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:46.030
  • it's more than changing the
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:48.080
  • font, you have to change the
  • 00:15:48.080 --> 00:15:49.100
  • So type for me, where you type,
  • 00:15:54.270 --> 00:15:57.220
  • we're gonna show you something.
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:15:59.180
  • "There's nothing as powerful as
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:02.150
  • a changed mind," okay?
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:06.080
  • Now put it in the other way,
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:09.100
  • that--okay, "There's nothing as
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:10.260
  • powerful as a changed mind."
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:12.260
  • All we did was change the font.
  • 00:16:13.120 --> 00:16:16.120
  • We changed the font and while
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:17.210
  • we're typing, whatever we type
  • 00:16:17.210 --> 00:16:20.090
  • in this font, will appear in
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:24.110
  • this font.
  • 00:16:24.110 --> 00:16:25.220
  • And it will appear that it has
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:27.230
  • changed, but it really has not
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:30.050
  • changed, because the moment you
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:32.050
  • go out and come back in again,
  • 00:16:32.050 --> 00:16:34.210
  • it will come back up, back to
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:38.170
  • default.
  • 00:16:38.170 --> 00:16:40.020
  • This is how most people live
  • 00:16:40.020 --> 00:16:42.050
  • their lives.
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:45.000
  • Because their default hadn't
  • 00:16:45.000 --> 00:16:46.160
  • changed, their situation hasn't
  • 00:16:49.100 --> 00:16:52.100
  • changed.
  • 00:16:52.100 --> 00:16:53.260
  • So when they're in church,
  • 00:16:53.260 --> 00:16:55.200
  • change.
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:57.000
  • When they're in church, they can
  • 00:16:57.000 --> 00:16:58.160
  • get this going.
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:17:00.030
  • When they're around certain
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:01.150
  • people, they can get this going.
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:03.100
  • When you sing certain songs,
  • 00:17:03.100 --> 00:17:05.060
  • they can get that going.
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:06.230
  • When you shout and leap, you can
  • 00:17:06.230 --> 00:17:08.160
  • get that going.
  • 00:17:08.160 --> 00:17:09.130
  • But when you go back home, you
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:11.110
  • go back to default.
  • 00:17:11.110 --> 00:17:13.070
  • So you're going back to default
  • 00:17:13.070 --> 00:17:14.190
  • over and over again, and when
  • 00:17:14.190 --> 00:17:16.260
  • you get around certain people,
  • 00:17:16.260 --> 00:17:18.200
  • you change and you wanna hang
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:21.080
  • around them because as long as
  • 00:17:21.080 --> 00:17:22.260
  • you're around them, you feel
  • 00:17:22.260 --> 00:17:24.160
  • peace, or you feel nice, or you
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:26.070
  • feel tired, or you feel
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:27.230
  • spiritual, or you feel holy.
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:29.100
  • That's not the problem.
  • 00:17:29.100 --> 00:17:31.020
  • The problem is when you go back
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:33.000
  • to your self, you're stuck in
  • 00:17:33.000 --> 00:17:35.130
  • the same pattern that you were
  • 00:17:35.130 --> 00:17:36.240
  • before, and you can't figure out
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:39.040
  • how to break it.
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:41.000
  • You've cried about it, but you
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:42.140
  • keep going back; you've shouted
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:44.110
  • about it, but you keep going
  • 00:17:44.110 --> 00:17:46.030
  • back; you've even prayed about
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:48.080
  • it, but you keep going back, and
  • 00:17:48.080 --> 00:17:50.130
  • you can't figure out how
  • 00:17:50.130 --> 00:17:51.280
  • somebody who cried for it, and
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:53.250
  • shouted for it, and sang about
  • 00:17:53.250 --> 00:17:55.140
  • it, and started going to church
  • 00:17:55.140 --> 00:17:57.190
  • on Sunday, and why does this
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:59.130
  • still keep happening to me?
  • 00:17:59.130 --> 00:18:02.000
  • I don't know whose prayer I'm
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:03.290
  • breaking into, but I'm breaking
  • 00:18:03.290 --> 00:18:05.220
  • into somebody's prayer, saying,
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:07.180
  • "Lord, why do I keep going
  • 00:18:07.180 --> 00:18:09.030
  • through the same things over and
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:10.220
  • over again?
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:12.080
  • I go to church now, I tithe now,
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:15.030
  • I shout now, I leap now."
  • 00:18:15.030 --> 00:18:17.250
  • And the Lord sent me here to
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:19.140
  • tell you it's no problem with
  • 00:18:19.140 --> 00:18:21.100
  • your sentence, the problem is
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:23.140
  • with your default.
  • 00:18:23.140 --> 00:18:25.030
  • Until you change your default,
  • 00:18:25.030 --> 00:18:27.170
  • you will always go back to being
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:30.030
  • who you were before because you
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:32.260
  • have never changed your mind.
  • 00:18:36.130 --> 00:18:39.130
  • You changed your friends, you
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:41.030
  • changed your address, you've
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:42.210
  • changed your phone number, you
  • 00:18:42.210 --> 00:18:44.070
  • changed the songs you sing, you
  • 00:18:44.070 --> 00:18:46.070
  • changed everything else, but you
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:48.010
  • didn't change your mind.
  • 00:18:48.010 --> 00:18:50.290
  • There is nothing as powerful as
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:56.080
  • a changed mind.
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:59.030
  • A changed mind, ooh, a changed
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:03.200
  • mind.
  • 00:19:03.200 --> 00:19:05.090
  • Whether you do it in 12 steps or
  • 00:19:05.090 --> 00:19:06.190
  • 1 step, a changed mind.
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:09.110
  • Oh, God, you all don't hear what
  • 00:19:09.110 --> 00:19:10.070
  • I'm saying.
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:11.080
  • A changed mind.
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:12.180
  • There's some people in here
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:13.290
  • right now that used to do drugs,
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:16.140
  • all kinds of drug.
  • 00:19:16.140 --> 00:19:18.010
  • Crazy drugs, strung out on
  • 00:19:18.010 --> 00:19:19.190
  • drugs.
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:20.120
  • People wouldn't believe who you
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:21.210
  • used to be.
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:23.000
  • Your old friends never thought
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:24.190
  • you would ever get away, but one
  • 00:19:24.190 --> 00:19:27.090
  • day you got sick and tired of
  • 00:19:27.090 --> 00:19:29.050
  • being sick and tired, and you
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:30.290
  • said, "Wait a minute, I'm not
  • 00:19:30.290 --> 00:19:32.220
  • just going to change my clothes,
  • 00:19:32.220 --> 00:19:34.280
  • I'm not just going to change my
  • 00:19:34.280 --> 00:19:36.150
  • address, I change my mind.
  • 00:19:37.110 --> 00:19:40.110
  • I completely change, yeah.
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:44.180
  • There are some women in this
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:45.200
  • church right now, you used to be
  • 00:19:45.200 --> 00:19:46.160
  • easy.
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:48.010
  • All they had to do was tell you,
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:49.080
  • you were cute.
  • 00:19:49.080 --> 00:19:50.080
  • You were easy.
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:51.180
  • One day my daddy rolled up on
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:53.160
  • you and said, "Baby, I ain't
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:54.150
  • never seen nothing as fine--"
  • 00:19:54.150 --> 00:19:55.280
  • Said, "Wait, wait, wait, I
  • 00:19:55.280 --> 00:19:57.200
  • change my mind."
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:19:59.280
  • Let me tell you something, if
  • 00:19:59.280 --> 00:20:00.200
  • you change your mind, I don't
  • 00:20:00.200 --> 00:20:02.190
  • care what comes up against you,
  • 00:20:02.190 --> 00:20:04.210
  • I don't care who you're
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:05.260
  • fighting, I don't care how big

  • they are, I don't care how tough
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:09.290
  • they are, there is nothing as
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:12.230
  • powerful as a changed--ooh, I'm
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:16.250
  • gonna preach in here in a

  • minute.
  • 00:20:18.010 --> 00:20:18.260
  • I feel the anointing of the Holy
  • 00:20:18.260 --> 00:20:19.290
  • Ghost.
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:20.280
  • Touch somebody and tell 'em, "I

  • Donna.

  • I want Donna.

  • I'm gonna show you something.
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:57.150
  • Let me ask you a question.
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:20:58.190
  • Maybe it's a personal question,
  • 00:20:58.190 --> 00:20:59.240
  • but about how much you weigh?
  • 00:20:59.240 --> 00:21:02.210
  • - Donna: A hundred and twelve.
  • 00:21:02.210 --> 00:21:03.200
  • - Bishop Jakes: About 112
  • 00:21:03.200 --> 00:21:04.150
  • pounds.
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:05.080
  • She weighs about 112 pounds.
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:08.140
  • Let me see.
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:09.230
  • I'm just a little shy, just
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:15.120
  • about 30 pounds or so shy of
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:18.140
  • being three times bigger than
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.040
  • you.
  • 00:21:20.040 --> 00:21:22.110
  • You're gonna do what I say.
  • 00:21:22.110 --> 00:21:24.260
  • You stand where I tell you to
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:27.010
  • stand, you wear what I tell you
  • 00:21:27.010 --> 00:21:29.110
  • to wear, you get up when I tell
  • 00:21:29.110 --> 00:21:31.100
  • you to get up, you sit down when
  • 00:21:31.100 --> 00:21:33.130
  • I tell you to sit down.
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:35.170
  • All of that sounds good.
  • 00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:37.240
  • She got every reason to obey me,

  • I'm bigger than you, I got the
  • 00:21:39.170 --> 00:21:41.290
  • money, I got the resources, I
  • 00:21:45.020 --> 00:21:48.020
  • got the name.
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:51.150
  • You don't know who you're
  • 00:21:51.150 --> 00:21:52.030
  • fooling with.
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:54.180
  • Woman, I'll slap you so hard,
  • 00:21:54.180 --> 00:21:56.020
  • I'll slap you all the way back

  • into your seat.

  • I could do it.
  • 00:21:59.060 --> 00:21:59.270
  • A hundred and twelve pounds, I
  • 00:21:59.270 --> 00:22:01.040
  • could lift you for exercise.
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:04.040
  • I work out with more weights
  • 00:22:04.040 --> 00:22:05.090
  • than you.
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:06.230
  • You don't stand a chance against

  • me.
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:08.240
  • All of that sounds good until
  • 00:22:08.240 --> 00:22:11.220
  • she changes her--you don't hear
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:16.220
  • what I'm saying to you.
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:18.090

  • the words that are coming out of
  • 00:22:21.160 --> 00:22:23.080
  • my mouth.

  • The devil can't do just anything
  • 00:22:24.270 --> 00:22:26.260
  • to you, people can't do just
  • 00:22:26.260 --> 00:22:28.270
  • anything to you, life can't do
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:31.070
  • just anything to you.
  • 00:22:31.070 --> 00:22:32.190
  • I don't care how little you are,
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:35.000
  • there is nothing as powerful as

  • Slap somebody and tell 'em,
  • 00:22:43.020 --> 00:22:44.020
  • "I changed my mind."
  • 00:22:44.180 --> 00:22:47.180
  • I got sick of it, I don't like
  • 00:22:47.180 --> 00:22:48.270
  • it.
  • 00:22:48.270 --> 00:22:49.200
  • I don't want it, I don't need
  • 00:22:49.200 --> 00:22:50.190
  • it.
  • 00:22:50.190 --> 00:22:51.100
  • I changed my mind.
  • 00:22:51.100 --> 00:22:52.220
  • I changed my default setting.
  • 00:22:52.220 --> 00:22:55.070
  • I'm not gonna fall back into the
  • 00:22:55.070 --> 00:22:57.180
  • same type print I was before I

  • Glory, glory, glory, glory.
  • 00:23:06.250 --> 00:23:09.170
  • Touch your neighbor and tell
  • 00:23:09.170 --> 00:23:10.040
  • 'em, "I feel a breakthrough in
  • 00:23:10.040 --> 00:23:11.160
  • here this morning."
  • 00:23:11.160 --> 00:23:14.010
  • I'm getting ready to change some
  • 00:23:14.010 --> 00:23:15.200
  • defaults.
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:17.010
  • I'm getting ready to change some
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:18.000
  • defaults.
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:19.030
  • I'm getting ready to change some
  • 00:23:19.030 --> 00:23:20.020
  • defaults.
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:21.100
  • How many people are gonna change
  • 00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:22.180
  • some default settings?
  • 00:23:22.180 --> 00:23:24.120
  • I'm gonna stop falling back into
  • 00:23:24.120 --> 00:23:26.170
  • the same thing over and over
  • 00:23:26.170 --> 00:23:29.020
  • again.
  • 00:23:29.020 --> 00:23:29.240
  • I'm not just going to change it
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:31.050
  • when I'm in church.
  • 00:23:31.050 --> 00:23:32.110
  • I'm gonna go back in the
  • 00:23:32.110 --> 00:23:33.200
  • computer and change the settings
  • 00:23:33.200 --> 00:23:36.020
  • so that I can have a new normal.
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:41.100
  • That's what repentance is, a new
  • 00:23:47.000 --> 00:23:49.210
  • normal, a new default setting.
  • 00:23:52.110 --> 00:23:55.110
  • I'm about to have a new normal,
