  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: Let's
  • 00:00:07.030 --> 00:00:07.210
  • pray.
  • 00:00:07.210 --> 00:00:08.090
  • Spirit of the living God, fall
  • 00:00:08.090 --> 00:00:09.190
  • fresh on us today.
  • 00:00:09.190 --> 00:00:11.060
  • Anoint us and saturate us with
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:12.270
  • the kind of anointing that
  • 00:00:12.270 --> 00:00:14.060
  • enables us to teach the Word
  • 00:00:14.060 --> 00:00:15.170
  • with power and with clarity.
  • 00:00:15.170 --> 00:00:17.250
  • Give me nimbleness of thought,
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.250
  • Lord, that I might flow in the
  • 00:00:19.250 --> 00:00:21.090
  • realm of the Holy Spirit and be
  • 00:00:21.090 --> 00:00:23.010
  • able to bless your people.
  • 00:00:23.010 --> 00:00:24.220
  • I thank you, oh, God.
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:26.090
  • I thank you, oh, God.
  • 00:00:26.090 --> 00:00:27.250
  • I may not be where I'm going to
  • 00:00:27.250 --> 00:00:29.010
  • be, but I thank you I'm not
  • 00:00:29.010 --> 00:00:30.140
  • where I used to be.
  • 00:00:30.140 --> 00:00:31.290
  • Thank you, Lord.
  • 00:00:31.290 --> 00:00:33.040
  • I may not have possessed all the
  • 00:00:33.040 --> 00:00:34.130
  • land, but I have sure left the
  • 00:00:34.130 --> 00:00:36.000
  • desert.
  • 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:36.280
  • I have come out of the
  • 00:00:36.280 --> 00:00:37.250
  • wilderness, and my feet are wet
  • 00:00:37.250 --> 00:00:39.160
  • having crossed the Jordan.
  • 00:00:39.160 --> 00:00:41.040
  • He that hath began a good work
  • 00:00:41.040 --> 00:00:42.190
  • in us shall sure perform it unto
  • 00:00:42.190 --> 00:00:44.110
  • the day of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:00:44.110 --> 00:00:45.230
  • I thank you because we are
  • 00:00:45.230 --> 00:00:46.230
  • fearfully and marvelously made,
  • 00:00:46.230 --> 00:00:49.040
  • and I thank you that you are
  • 00:00:49.040 --> 00:00:50.120
  • working on our behalf.
  • 00:00:50.120 --> 00:00:51.270
  • And before we know it, before we
  • 00:00:51.270 --> 00:00:54.250
  • know it, before we even have an
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:57.020
  • understanding of it, the glory
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:00:59.080
  • of the Lord is going to break
  • 00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:00.190
  • forth in our life.
  • 00:01:00.190 --> 00:01:02.160
  • And we believe you for it and we
  • 00:01:02.160 --> 00:01:04.070
  • thank you for it in Jesus' name.
  • 00:01:04.070 --> 00:01:06.220
  • Give him the best praise you
  • 00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:08.000
  • got, the very best, the very
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:09.180
  • best, the very best, the very
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:11.090
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:01:28.280 --> 00:01:31.050
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:01:32.070 --> 00:01:35.070
  • - Bishop Jakes: So what we're
  • 00:01:35.070 --> 00:01:35.250
  • looking at is passive and
  • 00:01:35.250 --> 00:01:36.230
  • aggressive faith.
  • 00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:39.110
  • The church has become aggressive
  • 00:01:39.110 --> 00:01:41.290
  • Intercession takes the burden up
  • 00:01:49.170 --> 00:01:51.200
  • It says, "Go to bed.
  • 00:01:56.290 --> 00:01:58.160
  • I got this."
  • 00:02:06.210 --> 00:02:09.210
  • So Peter is like--
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:10.240
  • The very thing he criticized
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:15.220
  • Isn't it Peter that said in the
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:23.280
  • storm, "Carest us not that we
  • 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:26.020
  • perish?
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.160
  • How can you be sleeping in the
  • 00:02:27.160 --> 00:02:28.290
  • middle of the storm?"
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:30.080
  • He has now matured into the
  • 00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:32.090
  • antithesis of what he criticized
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:34.270
  • about and now he's going--
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:36.200
  • [pretending to snore]
  • 00:02:45.190 --> 00:02:48.190
  • To be like Jesus
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:51.190
  • To be like Jesus
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:53.290
  • Oh, how I long
  • 00:02:53.290 --> 00:02:56.120
  • To be like him
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.160
  • He was so meek and lowly
  • 00:02:59.120 --> 00:03:02.140
  • He was humble and holy
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:05.010
  • Oh, how I long, praise God
  • 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:08.100
  • To be like him
  • 00:03:08.100 --> 00:03:09.230
  • Peter's sleep was a monument to
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:26.170
  • the magnitude of his faith.
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:29.180
  • Peter who normally freaks out in
  • 00:03:29.180 --> 00:03:31.050
  • a storm and goes around
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:32.210
  • screaming at Jesus is now in the
  • 00:03:32.210 --> 00:03:35.200
  • storm of his life.
  • 00:03:35.200 --> 00:03:37.230
  • What does he know that makes him
  • 00:03:44.020 --> 00:03:47.020
  • rest and others faint?
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:50.240
  • What does he know that makes him
  • 00:03:50.240 --> 00:03:52.280
  • calm when others are in crisis?
  • 00:03:52.280 --> 00:03:55.070
  • What does he know that makes him
  • 00:03:55.240 --> 00:03:58.240
  • now able to bear a storm that he
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:02.070
  • couldn't stand a few pages ago?
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:06.230
  • Look at how he's grown to rest
  • 00:04:07.130 --> 00:04:10.130
  • in Jesus.
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:14.270
  • Passive faith is still radical
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:17.180
  • faith.
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:21.080
  • Passive faith is still radical
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.150
  • faith.
  • 00:04:22.150 --> 00:04:23.260
  • The calm faith that anesthetize
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:26.200
  • your pain, tranquilizes your
  • 00:04:26.200 --> 00:04:28.050
  • fear, and brings you into a
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:30.000
  • state of solidarity is just as
  • 00:04:30.240 --> 00:04:33.240
  • magnificent as the faith that
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:35.250
  • makes you take the jawbone of an
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:38.020
  • ass and kill 10.000 Philistines,
  • 00:04:38.160 --> 00:04:41.160
  • and both of them are working
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:42.130
  • simultaneously in this text.
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:45.050
  • And while Peter was sleeping, an
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:50.210
  • angel appears.
  • 00:04:52.260 --> 00:04:55.260
  • When passive faith clutched
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:59.260
  • hands with aggressive faith, an
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:05.240
  • It's not like the angel knocks
  • 00:05:10.280 --> 00:05:11.250
  • at the door of the prison and
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:12.220
  • This is FedEx from heaven.
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:18.180
  • We have a delivery for you."
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:21.000
  • God never has to have anybody
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:23.140
  • else's permission to step into
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:26.010
  • He doesn't knock.
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:36.250
  • He just appears.
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:39.050
  • And all of a sudden, there's a
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:40.140
  • light standing over Peter, and
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:44.050
  • the angel is kind of rough with
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:45.280
  • Peter.
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:48.030
  • He kind of slapped Peter upside
  • 00:05:48.030 --> 00:05:49.080
  • the head.
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:50.010
  • "Get up."
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:54.040
  • He says, "I didn't come for your
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:05:56.210
  • comfort.
  • 00:05:56.210 --> 00:05:59.190
  • I came for your crisis.
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:03.030
  • I'm going to bring--I'm going to
  • 00:06:03.030 --> 00:06:03.270
  • wake you up, but it's not going
  • 00:06:03.270 --> 00:06:05.120
  • to be--get up.
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:09.230
  • You better get up."
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:12.120
  • And he says something crazy for
  • 00:06:12.120 --> 00:06:14.040
  • an angel.
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:15.130
  • He says, "Make haste.
  • 00:06:16.000 --> 00:06:19.000
  • We got to go."
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:21.070
  • Why is the angel in a hurry?
  • 00:06:22.190 --> 00:06:25.190
  • It's not like he's scared.
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:28.240
  • But the king's business requires
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:40.200
  • haste.
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.130
  • If you're going to do it for
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.180
  • God, you cannot be lethargic.
  • 00:06:46.110 --> 00:06:49.110
  • You cannot, "I'm thinking about
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:50.190
  • it.
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:51.060
  • I'm not sure.
  • 00:06:51.060 --> 00:06:52.130
  • I'm working on it.
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.210
  • I'm gradually going to come
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:55.060
  • around and eventually I'm going
  • 00:06:55.060 --> 00:06:57.180
  • to come out of this prison and
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:59.240
  • I'm going to be a mighty--"
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:02.210
  • When you get the grace to get
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:09.020
  • When God says it's over, make
  • 00:07:15.130 --> 00:07:18.130
  • haste.
  • 00:07:18.140 --> 00:07:21.140
  • When God says, "I'm bringing you
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:22.240
  • out right now," don't wait on
  • 00:07:22.240 --> 00:07:24.140
  • your pocket book.
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:25.160
  • Don't call your girlfriend.
  • 00:07:25.160 --> 00:07:27.080
  • Don't ask your sister what she
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:28.170
  • thinks about it."
  • 00:07:28.170 --> 00:07:30.090
  • Make haste.
  • 00:07:30.090 --> 00:07:31.100
  • Look at somebody and say, "Make
  • 00:07:31.100 --> 00:07:32.190
  • haste."
  • 00:07:32.190 --> 00:07:34.010
  • You better come out while you
  • 00:07:34.010 --> 00:07:35.010
  • can.
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:36.140
  • You better stop trying to be
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:37.070
  • cute.
  • 00:07:37.070 --> 00:07:38.030
  • You better come out right now.
  • 00:07:38.030 --> 00:07:39.290
  • When you get the grace to come
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:41.040
  • out, you better come out.
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.160
  • If you get the grace to get
  • 00:07:42.160 --> 00:07:43.130
  • healed, you better come out
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:44.190
  • right now.
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:45.230
  • You better take up your bed and
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:47.020
  • walk.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:48.000
  • You better stop sitting there
  • 00:07:48.000 --> 00:07:49.170
  • talking to yourself, reasoning
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:51.130
  • to yourself, making excuses for
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:53.160
  • your own dysfunction.
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.110
  • When the anointing comes to get
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.260
  • Look at somebody and say, "Make
  • 00:08:02.270 --> 00:08:03.160
  • haste."
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:05.190
  • Either you're going to get over
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:06.170
  • it or you're not, either you're
  • 00:08:06.170 --> 00:08:07.290
  • going to forgive him or you're
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:09.070
  • not, either you're going to walk
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.180
  • in it or you're not.
  • 00:08:10.180 --> 00:08:12.040
  • Stop laying around in the mess
  • 00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:14.010
  • talking about, "I'm gradually
  • 00:08:14.010 --> 00:08:15.120
  • going to get out."
  • 00:08:15.120 --> 00:08:16.070
  • The devil is a lie.
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:17.140
  • When God's glory shows up in
  • 00:08:17.140 --> 00:08:19.220
  • Slap somebody and say, "I'm
  • 00:08:26.050 --> 00:08:27.070
  • coming out right now."
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:30.110
  • I'm coming out right now.
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:31.100
  • It won't be 6 months.
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:33.010
  • It won't be 6 years.
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:34.290
  • It won't be after the holidays.
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:37.050
  • I'm coming out right now.
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:39.240
  • I see the grace to get out.
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:42.050
  • I'm coming out right now.
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:44.030
  • I see the grace, I'm coming out
  • 00:08:44.030 --> 00:08:46.100
  • right now.
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:47.060
  • I refuse to be slow when God is
  • 00:08:47.220 --> 00:08:50.220
  • working fast, when--oh!

  • The day you hear my voice,

  • harden not your heart."
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:02.100

  • Make haste.
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:16.110

  • My God, coming out now.
  • 00:09:40.010 --> 00:09:43.010
  • Coming out right now.

  • When God puts a grace on your

  • life, it has a time dimension to
  • 00:10:00.240 --> 00:10:03.240

  • fitting to.
  • 00:10:06.080 --> 00:10:07.170
  • I'm getting ready to.

  • I thought we were connected.
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.220
  • God says, "When I bring you out,

  • even those closest to you won't
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:43.110

  • Don't wait on a witness.
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:58.200
  • Don't say, "Man, did you hear

  • Do you think--"
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:07.000
  • He said, "No. No.

  • When I speak to you, it's going

  • it before you know it, that you
  • 00:18:48.280 --> 00:18:51.280
  • are whole before you know it,
  • 00:18:53.000 --> 00:18:56.000
  • that you're not afraid anymore

  • before you know it, and you
  • 00:18:58.230 --> 00:19:00.260
  • can't even tell anybody what
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:04.010
  • really happened because God did
  • 00:19:04.090 --> 00:19:07.090
  • Peter could not differentiate
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:22.260
  • between what he was dreaming and
  • 00:19:23.210 --> 00:19:26.210
  • what he was living.
  • 00:19:28.020 --> 00:19:31.020
  • He went from dreaming about it
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:36.060
  • There are some people in this
  • 00:19:45.180 --> 00:19:46.110
  • room that if you give it a
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:48.090
  • moment and think about it, you
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:49.150
  • are walking in things that you
  • 00:19:49.150 --> 00:19:51.270
  • Never could have imagined.
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:02.110
  • Now you got to go back before
  • 00:20:02.110 --> 00:20:03.140
  • you started taking your
  • 00:20:03.140 --> 00:20:04.200
  • blessings for granted.
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:08.230
  • Go back to the old you who was
  • 00:20:08.230 --> 00:20:10.160
  • praying to be the you, you have
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:12.070
  • And I bet you, you cannot tell
  • 00:20:18.130 --> 00:20:20.290
  • One day it was a dream, and the
  • 00:20:30.170 --> 00:20:33.170
  • next day I was walking in it.
  • 00:20:36.190 --> 00:20:39.190
  • He came to himself.
  • 00:20:42.190 --> 00:20:45.170
  • And he said, "Now I know.
  • 00:20:47.180 --> 00:20:50.180
  • I know it."
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.150
  • And when he knew it, the angel
  • 00:21:03.150 --> 00:21:06.100
  • And if the angel disappeared,
  • 00:21:12.090 --> 00:21:15.090
  • then class is dismissed.
  • 00:21:16.110 --> 00:21:19.110
  • "Class is dismissed, Bishop?"
  • 00:21:19.110 --> 00:21:22.070
  • Yeah, the whole thing was a
  • 00:21:22.070 --> 00:21:24.200
  • class taught by the master
  • 00:21:25.190 --> 00:21:28.190
  • instructor in a controlled
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:32.210
  • environment so that Peter could
  • 00:21:34.070 --> 00:21:37.070
  • preach the rest of his life
  • 00:21:37.070 --> 00:21:40.060
  • without fear of the jailhouse.
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:45.000
  • He exposed you to it to take the
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:49.100
  • Let me stop.
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:55.070
  • Let me stop.
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.070
  • I got to stop.
  • 00:21:56.070 --> 00:21:57.210
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:21:57.220 --> 00:22:00.240
  • So that it wouldn't threaten
  • 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:01.260
  • you, so that it wouldn't
  • 00:22:01.260 --> 00:22:02.230
  • intimidate you, so that it
  • 00:22:02.230 --> 00:22:03.260
  • wouldn't have power over you.
  • 00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:08.040
  • One final thing and I'll be
  • 00:22:08.040 --> 00:22:10.210
  • through.
  • 00:22:10.210 --> 00:22:12.160
  • When the angel disappeared, the
  • 00:22:12.160 --> 00:22:13.220
  • angel didn't tell him where to
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:14.240
  • go, what to preach, or what to
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:17.110
  • do.
  • 00:22:17.110 --> 00:22:19.110
  • Went to the house that they were
  • 00:22:28.220 --> 00:22:31.220
  • praying in.
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:34.090
  • How did he know which house?
  • 00:22:35.240 --> 00:22:38.240
  • So he comes to the house and
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:41.260
  • knocks on the door.
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:45.120
  • Rhoda comes to the door and
  • 00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:48.070
  • hears Peter's voice, and they're
  • 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:52.160
  • still in there praying, and
  • 00:22:52.160 --> 00:22:54.060
  • beating the floor, and talking
  • 00:22:54.060 --> 00:22:55.190
  • in tongues, and rebuking the
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:56.290
  • devil, and pleading the blood,
  • 00:22:58.000 --> 00:23:01.020
  • and Peter was out before they
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:04.260
  • Rhoda goes to the door and says,
  • 00:23:10.160 --> 00:23:12.290
  • "That's Peter."
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:15.040
  • And they said, "No, it's not.
  • 00:23:15.040 --> 00:23:16.030
  • It's a ghost.
  • 00:23:16.030 --> 00:23:18.160
  • It's an angel.
  • 00:23:18.160 --> 00:23:19.100
  • It's something else, not Peter."
  • 00:23:20.180 --> 00:23:23.180
  • What they were praying for had
  • 00:23:23.180 --> 00:23:26.130

  • before they knew it.

  • Rhoda tried to tell them.
  • 00:23:45.190 --> 00:23:46.210
  • They wouldn't hear it.
  • 00:23:47.180 --> 00:23:50.180
  • They opened up the door.
  • 00:23:50.180 --> 00:23:52.170
  • Peter is standing there.
  • 00:23:52.170 --> 00:23:53.260
  • They're aghast.
  • 00:23:53.260 --> 00:23:56.210
  • He said, "Shut up.
  • 00:23:56.210 --> 00:23:57.140
  • Let me tell you what happened.

  • Then he--I was trying to get my

  • clothes on and we--he told me to

  • get my coat.
  • 00:24:37.060 --> 00:24:38.020
