  • - Bishop Jakes: This is the
  • 00:01:01.230 --> 00:01:02.190
  • problem that creates the
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:06.040
  • opportunity for David to be
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:08.210
  • called.
  • 00:01:08.210 --> 00:01:10.140
  • Away with praying that Saul
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:12.070
  • wouldn't have an evil spirit.
  • 00:01:12.070 --> 00:01:14.000
  • It is exactly the evil spirit
  • 00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:16.170
  • that created an opportunity for
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:18.160
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:01:20.180 --> 00:01:23.180
  • Oh, y'all are not working with

  • me this morning.
  • 00:01:24.250 --> 00:01:26.180
  • The evil spirit created an
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:28.150
  • opportunity for the Holy Spirit
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:32.050
  • to operate in the room.
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:34.150

  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:47.180
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:47.180 --> 00:01:50.100
  • Saul is brooding, and dark, and
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:53.200
  • dank, and evil, and breaking
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:56.130
  • stuff, and later throwing
  • 00:01:56.130 --> 00:01:58.050
  • javelins, and just being an
  • 00:01:58.050 --> 00:02:00.160
  • idiot, schizo, and they sent for
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:06.010
  • David because he was unbearable
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.160
  • to be around.
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:13.040
  • And David had magic in his
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:14.230
  • fingers.
  • 00:02:14.230 --> 00:02:17.190
  • When David played, when David
  • 00:02:18.170 --> 00:02:21.170
  • played his harp--

  • [harp music]
  • 00:02:56.010 --> 00:02:59.010
  • - Bishop Jakes: When David
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:03:00.020
  • played his harp, when he just
  • 00:03:00.020 --> 00:03:02.130
  • played, when he stroked it, when
  • 00:03:03.250 --> 00:03:06.250
  • he touched it, when he played,
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:12.140
  • the evil spirits departed.

  • playing.
  • 00:03:23.270 --> 00:03:24.160
  • David never knew when he was
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:29.070
  • playing on the backside of the

  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:44.010
  • - Bishop Jakes: Would make room
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:44.250
  • for him and that he
  • 00:03:44.250 --> 00:03:47.080
  • would go from playing for sheep
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:51.200
  • to playing for kings.
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:54.240
  • I don't know who I'm talking to,
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:57.270
  • but you're gonna find out why
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:03:59.020
  • you had to go through what you
  • 00:03:59.020 --> 00:04:00.090
  • had to go through, because God
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:02.290
  • is about to make room for you.
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:05.260
  • He's about to open up a door for
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:07.070
  • you.
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:08.180
  • He's about to use what you got
  • 00:04:08.180 --> 00:04:10.050
  • to make it better for somebody
  • 00:04:10.050 --> 00:04:11.220
  • else.
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:13.080
  • You are the answer to somebody's
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:15.100
  • question.
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:17.040
  • You are the solution to
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:18.110
  • somebody's--listen, what you
  • 00:04:20.070 --> 00:04:23.070
  • got, can't nobody do what you do
  • 00:04:24.150 --> 00:04:27.150
  • like you do when you do what you
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:29.220
  • do like you do it when you do
  • 00:04:29.220 --> 00:04:31.290
  • it.
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.240
  • You in a class all by yourself.
  • 00:04:33.290 --> 00:04:36.290
  • You're in a place of
  • 00:04:36.290 --> 00:04:38.040
  • distinction.
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:39.250
  • You have been created for such a
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.280
  • time as this.
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:43.070
  • Play that thing.
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:45.080
  • [harp music]
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:03.030
  • - Bishop Jakes: Touch three
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:03.200
  • people and tell 'em, "Something
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:04.160
  • is about to happen."
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:07.130
  • God's about to change the
  • 00:05:07.130 --> 00:05:08.200
  • atmosphere.
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.140
  • God's about to change to
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:11.180
  • atmosphere.
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:13.110
  • God's about to change the
  • 00:05:13.110 --> 00:05:14.150
  • atmosphere.
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:17.010
  • God's about to change the
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:18.080
  • atmosphere.
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:20.030
  • God's about to change the
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:23.160
  • atmosphere.
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:31.200
  • You see, what we begin to
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:36.270
  • understand is that David
  • 00:05:36.270 --> 00:05:39.160
  • entertains God's presence with
  • 00:05:39.160 --> 00:05:41.240
  • music.
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:43.240
  • [harp music]
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:54.240
  • I can't play, I just wanna stand
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:56.070
  • over there while she plays.
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:06:01.220
  • The music draws me.
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:04.170
  • The music affects me.
  • 00:06:04.170 --> 00:06:06.230
  • The music changes the
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:07.230
  • atmosphere.
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:09.120
  • The whole room felt different
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:11.000
  • when she just started.
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:13.000
  • [harp music]
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:39.140
  • - Bishop Jakes: See, you have
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.190
  • to understand that it is not
  • 00:06:40.190 --> 00:06:43.000
  • David's fighting that brings him
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:44.220
  • to the palace, it's his music.
  • 00:06:47.270 --> 00:06:50.270
  • His music summons the presence
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:54.010
  • of God, and wherever the Spirit
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:57.240
  • of the Lord is...
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:06:59.240
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:07:06.160 --> 00:07:09.160
  • - Bishop Jakes: Wherever
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:10.020
  • the Spirit of the Lord is,
  • 00:07:10.070 --> 00:07:13.070
  • there is liberty.
  • 00:07:13.070 --> 00:07:15.190
  • Dance, David, dance, whoo,
  • 00:07:16.160 --> 00:07:19.160
  • dance, David, dance.
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:23.090
  • Dance, David, dance.
  • 00:07:23.090 --> 00:07:25.000
  • God is about to do a new thing
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:27.290
  • in your life like you have never
  • 00:07:27.290 --> 00:07:30.100
  • seen before.
  • 00:07:35.100 --> 00:07:38.100
  • There's something I learned,
  • 00:07:38.100 --> 00:07:39.020
  • thank you.
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:39.180
  • There's something I learned.
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:41.130
  • There's something I learned.
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:43.120
  • I started studying the
  • 00:07:43.120 --> 00:07:45.150
  • instruments of the Old
  • 00:07:45.150 --> 00:07:46.190
  • Testament, because what made
  • 00:07:46.190 --> 00:07:47.250
  • David mighty, when he gets ready
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:50.180
  • to go to Zion, when he gets
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:51.190
  • ready to go to Zion, it is
  • 00:07:51.190 --> 00:07:53.210
  • almost a repetition of how he
  • 00:07:53.210 --> 00:07:55.280
  • came to the palace.
  • 00:07:55.280 --> 00:07:58.250
  • He comes to the palace as a
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.260
  • musician.
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:03.210
  • He is promoted to an armor
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.140
  • bearer.
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:07.090
  • Later, we will read that he
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:08.240
  • comes back to be king.
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:15.050
  • And the reason he had to have
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.270
  • music is because he had music
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:20.110
  • the first time.
  • 00:08:20.110 --> 00:08:23.050
  • So, David is going back to
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:25.010
  • something.
  • 00:08:28.090 --> 00:08:31.090
  • Somebody needs to go back to
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:32.260
  • something you threw away.
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:35.250
  • When you were in trouble the
  • 00:08:35.250 --> 00:08:36.230
  • first time, you used to call on
  • 00:08:36.230 --> 00:08:38.250
  • the Lord, now you think you're
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:40.170
  • smart.
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:41.220
  • But if you go back to calling on
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:43.150
  • him like you used to call on
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:45.210
  • him, I mean that old-fashioned,
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:48.220
  • gully-washing, thirst-quenching,
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:51.280
  • devil-chasing, I know you're
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:53.210
  • cute now, I know you're doctor
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:56.030
  • so-and-so, I know you make eight
  • 00:08:56.030 --> 00:08:58.080
  • figures, but if you go back
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:04.000
  • I didn't realize, I get it.
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:21.010
  • I know the slingshot was a
  • 00:09:21.010 --> 00:09:22.230
  • weapon, but this is a weapon,
  • 00:09:28.110 --> 00:09:31.110
  • too.
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:34.160
  • The only difference between
  • 00:09:34.240 --> 00:09:37.240
  • David praising God on the harp
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:42.020
  • and David praising God when he
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:43.210
  • brings back the arc of the
  • 00:09:43.210 --> 00:09:45.020
  • covenant is, this time he's
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:47.070
  • using everything.
  • 00:09:49.250 --> 00:09:52.250
  • This time, he's using
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:53.230
  • everything.
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:55.180
  • The first time he used
  • 00:09:55.180 --> 00:09:56.140
  • something, this time, he's got a
  • 00:09:56.240 --> 00:09:59.240
  • whole band.
  • 00:09:59.240 --> 00:10:01.120
  • The power of David's tabernacle
  • 00:10:02.020 --> 00:10:05.020
  • is that David's tabernacle--see,
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:07.050
  • Moses gave us ordinances and
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:11.040
  • sacraments, David's tabernacle
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:14.180
  • gives us instruments.
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:21.130
  • And David created instruments.
  • 00:10:24.100 --> 00:10:27.100
  • There are no brazen altars, no
  • 00:10:27.100 --> 00:10:28.240
  • brazen lavers, no table of
  • 00:10:28.240 --> 00:10:30.160
  • shewbread, no altar incense,
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:36.150
  • there's only instruments.
  • 00:10:36.150 --> 00:10:38.280
  • So, I started studying on
  • 00:10:38.280 --> 00:10:40.190
  • instruments, and all of the
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:43.160
  • instruments that were used in

  • the service started that that
  • 00:11:29.070 --> 00:11:31.090

  • trumpet," it is all over the Old
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:40.080
  • Testament, because it was a
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:42.090
  • signal for the saints to
  • 00:11:42.090 --> 00:11:45.000
  • assemble, that something was
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:47.070
  • about to happen.
  • 00:11:47.070 --> 00:11:49.060

  • But what I didn't tell you is
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:55.130
  • that in the Bible, the trumpet
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:57.020

  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:18.180
  • The trumpet was made out of
  • 00:12:18.180 --> 00:12:20.000
  • silver, so the instrument itself
  • 00:12:20.250 --> 00:12:23.250

  • the Holy Spirit.

  • suddenly, there came a sound

  • on our television, and blaring
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:30.170
  • through the house, we love it.

  • - Bishop Jakes: What I learned

  • is that even today, all of these

  • - Bishop Jakes: See, when you
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:11.100
  • play the organ, normally, they
  • 00:15:12.200 --> 00:15:15.200
  • would describe you as an
  • 00:15:15.200 --> 00:15:18.110
  • accompaniment, because in our
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:21.060
  • culture, the music is designed
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:24.070
  • to accompany the singer.
  • 00:15:25.270 --> 00:15:28.270
  • But when the Bible says to
  • 00:15:28.270 --> 00:15:30.240
  • praise him on the organ,
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:34.060
  • it means if nobody sings--
  • 00:15:34.060 --> 00:15:37.000
  • [organ music]
  • 00:15:51.090 --> 00:15:54.090
  • - Bishop Jakes: That every time
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:55.090
  • you touch, every time you touch
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:56.190
  • a key, it produces a sound.
  • 00:15:57.160 --> 00:16:00.180
  • Every time you touch a key, it
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:01.230
  • produces a sound.
  • 00:16:01.230 --> 00:16:03.090
  • And this organ is really
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:04.210
  • imitating a pipe organ, which
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.070
  • produces wind.
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:11.240
  • You see, it's designed, when you
  • 00:16:11.240 --> 00:16:13.110
  • pull the bars, you get different
  • 00:16:13.110 --> 00:16:14.280
  • sounds to imitate the pipes, and
  • 00:16:14.280 --> 00:16:17.070
  • the organs, and the wind, and
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:18.280
  • the wind produces a sound, and
  • 00:16:18.280 --> 00:16:20.290
  • the sound goes up before God as
  • 00:16:20.290 --> 00:16:22.280
  • a symphony.
  • 00:16:22.280 --> 00:16:23.280
  • So, if nobody ever adds a lyric,
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:29.050
  • your music alone is praise to
  • 00:16:29.050 --> 00:16:31.090
  • God.
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:33.180
  • So, whenever you play, you play
  • 00:16:34.070 --> 00:16:37.070
  • as giving praise to God.
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:40.180

  • every time you think about where
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:49.260
  • God brought you from, if you
  • 00:16:49.260 --> 00:16:52.150
  • don't say a word, if the choir
  • 00:16:52.150 --> 00:16:54.130
  • don't sing, if they don't write
  • 00:16:54.130 --> 00:16:55.230
  • a lyric, just praise him on the
  • 00:16:55.230 --> 00:16:58.160
  • drums one more time, just
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:16:59.160

  • your spirit.
  • 00:17:54.030 --> 00:17:55.190
  • That goes up before God as a

  • sweet-smelling savor.
  • 00:17:57.140 --> 00:17:59.060
  • Whenever you think about where

  • 00:23:20.180 --> 00:23:23.020
  • God.
  • 00:23:24.270 --> 00:23:27.270
  • Let me show you this and I'll be
  • 00:23:27.270 --> 00:23:29.020
  • finished.
  • 00:23:29.020 --> 00:23:30.140
  • Everything you heard today
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:32.060
  • either got touched or it got
  • 00:23:32.150 --> 00:23:35.150
  • blown into.
  • 00:23:36.040 --> 00:23:39.040
  • So, when man creates
  • 00:23:39.040 --> 00:23:41.010
  • instruments, he does it by
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:43.290
  • touching or blowing into it.
  • 00:23:44.280 --> 00:23:47.280
  • When God created instruments, he
  • 00:23:48.050 --> 00:23:51.050
  • created you.
  • 00:23:58.030 --> 00:24:01.050
  • But when he came to man, he
  • 00:24:01.130 --> 00:24:04.130
  • touched him, because man is an
  • 00:24:04.260 --> 00:24:07.260
  • instrument.
  • 00:24:07.260 --> 00:24:09.190
  • And when he got through touching
  • 00:24:09.190 --> 00:24:11.000
  • him, he got down and he blew in
  • 00:24:11.050 --> 00:24:14.050
  • him, because you are an
  • 00:24:18.140 --> 00:24:21.140
  • instrument of praise.
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:24.200
  • So, when the Bible says, "Let
  • 00:24:24.200 --> 00:24:27.170
  • everything that has breath
  • 00:24:30.200 --> 00:24:33.200
  • praise ye the Lord,"--

  • something, so does God.
