More Interesting Facts About,

audio enhanced dr carolyn showell trouble brought me here...

There is a theme running in the service. Everything already. I always listen to the spirit of God and what is the theme of the service so that we can agree with the spirit of God and sure enough, we are there. let's go to genesis chapter 27 and chapter 28 I want to thank this choir genesis 28 verse 11 to 16 blessed us and he arrived at a certain place and stayed there all night because the sun was setting the volume of the rocks original texts i' When reading of the tanakh, you follow me in the king james of the place and he put them as pillows and lay down in that place and he dreamed and he saw a ladder placed on the earth and the top reached to heaven and he saw the angels of god ascending and descending have in count the order ascending and descending and behold the lord stood over him and said I am the lord god of abraham your father father and the god of isaac the land upon which your life will I give to you and your seed and your seed it will be like the dust of the earth and you will spread out to the west to the east to the north and to the south and in you and in your sea all the families of the earth will be blessed and behold I am with you and I will keep you in someone say all places to where you go and I will bring you back to this earth because I will not leave you until I have done what I told you and jacob woke up from his sleep and said certainly the lord is in someone says this place and I did not know it eh my topic tonight is I want to talk to you about this idea that is in the first part the eighth part of verse 11 which says that he got to a certain place i want to talk to you tonight about a certain place a certain place and my subtext is problems that

brought

me here if you want to know how i got here problems that

brought

me here you can be sitting vi bishop james mr cynthia james god bless you wherever you are hey let's listen i love god more than the first time you all saw me 31 years ago i love him more and the death of my love for him has come from tracing and traversing waters turbulent. in your life now I am going to confess to you something and it may seem strange to some of you but some of you will also clearly understand what I am saying and I am confessing to you that um the predicament the problem the problem that I went through that was the best I could have passed now now i was expecting that mixed look from some of you but stick with me i'm going to talk to you because uh god he hired he hired my problem to work for me he sat me down because i was about to become a casualty in the cancerous culture we call church I am a fifth generation apostolic but at the same time I had to pull pull back I got caught because I had started playing the games we played and start looking for the superficial and what had no real victory so he made me lie down dave david said that i had the same testimony last february coming from colorado preaching the full gospel i got off the plane i couldn't breathe they had to take me I went to the hospital and they detained me only to find out that I had been preaching for two years with one lung in the pulpit screaming and jumping preaching before the people of God traveling sleeping in hotels and I still only had one lung and the team of doctors asked my doctor who had the holy spirit asked him when she died and he said not only is she not dead but she just got off a plane and then they found out my intestines, my colon, my stomach had gone up through my esophagus and was over my lung left after 18 hours of surgery huh the do ctor said when i walked in huh the jewish doctor told my doctor your lips are moving you are trying to tell us something and my doctor told you he is not talking to you because I learned that I learned Bishop Pratt in a class I took. neuroscience and brain plasticity that the brain responds to two things it releases its own morphines which cause healing in the bloodstream and raises the immune system and those two things are praise so i made up my mind rather than wait to see if the abilities from the doctor they work i was going to start my own healing i am telling someone right now right now you don't have to wait till we get our hands on you because i myself you can start your own healing just by raising your hands and opening your mouth and blessing god right now and so then god takes me now he takes me to a certain place and in that certain place he shows me the treasures that are hidden in my anguish oh it was not easy it was not happy he wanted me to find those treasures and here is the observation he gave me In the first place, and that's many times when God is about to add a new chapter to your personal narrative, He will allow your environment to almost become empty.
audio enhanced dr carolyn showell trouble brought me here
Elevating against you when God is about to take you to the next level in him, he will allow your environment to become so tumultuous and chaotic that sometimes even those you depend on seem to be generating positive possibilities, suddenly they begin to act. like crazy and you stay standing. in shock that's what happens when god allows things allow things and people to interrupt your process so he can start making sure you don't abort your prophesied place now so god is trying to make us understand now for some of us as the text teaches us the arena of your fight the fight is not your public world because we know how to handle the public world nobody uses titles and nobody uses titles and nobody uses uh uh uh uh trades like church people, ah, listen to me, look around church, we seem to have everything under control, we seem to be spiritually, mentally and emotionally healthy, we look good, tell someone I look good, oh, you said that kind of soft, maybe tell someone I know .
audio enhanced dr carolyn showell trouble brought me here
I look good but the public is not this is not a public test the text lets you know this is a take home test a test you take at home that becomes the arena because the truth is we can be giant bosses we can be leaders in public and then fail when it comes to the house well you don't have to say it man everything is fine the danger is that uh the text shows us again the danger is when what happens in private can no longer be controlled in public when matters arrive uninvited to the convention when private matters demand public attention when private matters follow no personal sense of protocol or rule of order, but private matters require to be seen and heard such as the nature of the t Now that the problems of the house have spilled out on the street, we look at the application and the explanation of what God wants to do and let me do this because this is my area, let me talk art now from the passage from the judaic monastic perspective which simply means that i don't use matthew henry, i use rabbinic literature because it gives us as christians a different perspective, listen to what the text tells us in chapter 24, they introduce you to rebecca and you know the story all too well so i'm not going to rehearse everything you know how she qualified to be isaac's wife and then through prayer they came and got married and sought and asked god for children. rebecca's maternity time was not comfortable because, uh, the text tells you that the mishnah tells you that inside her womb were two twins and that they were fighting the one whose name meant that i was i was driving roughly uh uh uh jacobs whose name means the one who grabs the heel, the one who follows the els of another and so they are still in the womb fighting and the prophecy says that they will fight for the rest of their lives what amazes me is that they are born and they are born in a family of a house of dysfunctionality because of the house atmosphere of deceit, deceit and lies, isn't it interesting that people fight in dysfunctionalism?
Fight to have a place in dysfunctionalism. Fight to be leaders in dysfunctionalism. They will cut you in the back. They will fight you because they want to be president at the funeral of something they will fight you just because they want to be leaders on a sinking ship and so dysfunctionalism became the atmosphere in the house the text tells us they were fighting when they came out they were fighting inside the house, the atmosphere of the house was because the parents, uh, they got engaged, they encouraged this sibling rivalry between the two born because Genesis 25 says Isaac loved Esau and Rebecca L. loved jacob what I love about texas then now , when you get to rebecca chapter 21 wish stemmed this plan and y'all know that part is very good too now the plan is one of deceit and chicory while now they are trying to deceive isaac let's go somewhere esau is hard heartbroken esau is angry now esau swears i am going to kill my brother as soon as my father closes his eyes i am going to kill him now you have this house listen to this this house is now built on re deceit the house is full of deceit it is impossible to have a house full of deceit and the people in the house are not filled with the same deceit let me put it another way whatever the nature of the house will become the essence of the people in the house let me give you a bible quiz let me give you a bible quiz let's go to our family text acts the second chapter and a strong russian wind came and what did it do it filled the house and after it filled the h When they started talking it filled the house first the problem with many of us even in the church we want people to be full and the house is empty we haveto fill the atmosphere with what we want seeping into the nature of the people now right there i only need 150 people to open their mouths and bless god right there and fill the house jacob is running he has to get out of this crazy house he he is running uh he is running away his mother uh she has helped him to become contaminated and so now he is running, the problem is that every time you run away from someone or something, listen to me when I tell you your thoughts, your attitudes, your feelings, they are not your periculo, they do not help you, they are not your consolation, they are not your part.
In fact, your emotions become your competition. The danger of running with yourself is that it will even take you. I heard you cry. I heard you senior bishop, eric. keep talking now uh look because the problem is you're running with yourself and you can't trust yourself jacob is not ready to admit uh some of the things and i need some real people in the house some of the things that he went through some of the things that would happen to him some of what happened to his brother sometimes you have to be old enough to admit that i did it to myself let me talk to this side because they understand some things you go through don't you can blame no one we are the honest people in the room listen to them listen listen to the text he tried even though he knew he was wrong he had options but he wanted someone else's birthright you heard this before he wanted to be someone else uh he he wanted someone's identity listen listen it's dangerous when you're around people who want to be you it's dangerous to be around people who don't trust the god in them p to make them unique and different ain' no one says anything on this side it's dangerous to be around people who are only close to you so what you can do for them it's all about you what you gonna do to make them look good so jacob is on the run he is running away from a dysfunctional house he is running away from the pain of the house he is running away from the pollution of the house he is running away from the rejection of the house he is running away from the confusion of the house and in a rabbinic uh a theologian rashi says rashi says he is running at night and he is running with his favorite idol he sleeps with his idol washes his idol dresses his idol who adores his idol and he is his own idol his narcissism has led him to become the god of his own altar his own gnosticism does not care lets see how he is hurting other people because other people only exist to be part of his own game so god tell us this is where i love the text he runs into the night he runs into the night the mishna talks about run into the night um in baltimore there is a rule when i was growing up there is a rule that when the lights come on we go we go n someone when the lights come on has to come in the house we have we have defined the night the fear of the dark the negativism of the night but we forget that isaiah 43 and 5 speaks to us about the treasures in the dark isaiah wants us to understand that some things that God wants to do for you so that you convert will not happen during the day, they will happen during the night, I need to talk about it because that's where the lord had me he didn't have me rejoicing on the hilltops during the day he made me look him in the face in the season of night you have to understand that now because why am I going to mess with your theology because God called darkness night called light day and evening and morning became the first day god never called darkness evil all he did was distinguish and differentiate light from darkness per or because of a symbiotic union between light and day you can't have one we would like to have another it's like a mother and a child a child can cannot be a child without a mother and a mother cannot be a mother without the child exists this codependency of one over the other so you need to understand that we have been wrong because we have been quoting scriptures to men as darkness because their deeds are evil and in god first john there is light and there is no darkness in him but we do not understand the light in that context means that there is no that that is the revolution the light in god in john revelation is true that means there is no imperfection there is no deficiency there is no need in other words your god does not need anything because god is god the last thing you need when you are in your night is someone trying to tell you that god is not present i actually came to tell you what i found out since i was in church last year bishop wayne bishop power i found out you haven't really seen god until you see god in the dark with your eyes wide open you haven't seen god until you've seen god through the blindness and tears you haven't seen god until you've seen god through the pain piercing pain you haven't seen god until you've seen god through your brokenness you haven't seen god until you've seen god after You've lost something, I came to tell you anyone can have joy during the day when all is well but it takes a big boy, a big girl, a grown woman and a grown man to know how to say sir and i still trust you. lord and i still love you lord and i still believe even when you don't know it's the season nice it's the season of the night that teaches you how to handle god's silence there were times i didn't know if i was mad at god or god was mad at me everything what i know is that no one was talking the night season teaches you how to wait on god when the fulfillment of the scriptures is taking too long the night teaches you how to trust god when you have knocked and the door wall is open you have searched and found nothing you asked and there was no answer on n The night season teaches you to feel your way in the dark until you want to lock or just look up and then you stumble.
The night season teaches you how to get back up and keep going. Show that you listen to the night season. Bishop Jakes taught me what had the power to kill me but God didn't give him the authority when you go through something and the doctor said you should be dead when you go through something and you should have had a nervous breakdown and God allow you your You don't know this is not how this story is showing Hallelujah sit down the night taught me the night taught me that God does not want my house my car my body but he wants my faith because he knows without faith the night taught me peggy the night seasons taught me how to reset my heart when my heart became attached to those things which were the addictions of a culture where there was no victory so it made me reset my heart so that i could understand once again what is the priority to god and then the season of night taught me how that god is not only the god of day but has hidden treasures in the dark and that is why he arrives at this certain place that is talked about intentionally deliberately because he is predestined predetermined and shortlisted the place now remember that he is running from dysfunctionalism he is running from a bad house he is running from madness he is running from a brother who hates him and runs from that mess of that madness and runs to a certain place here is what you must understand uh in rabbinic literature uh the word for place m-a-k-o-m is macomb runs from dysfunctionalism to macomb runs from two goes from dysfunctionalism to macomb the word the derivative the hebrew derivative of mcomb this is someone who will understand this is god he flees from madness, should have hit that ok he runs but he runs too this is what he tells us god will allow the folly of your circumstance he will allow the flesh to fail you every time he allows the folly of your situation he will allow it to exist , so it will spit at you and make you run directly towards it.
Now, this is what I like when he understands this. I didn't choose to go one, but sometimes God will chase you, drag you down, do what he has to do just to make sure you don't fall short of destiny and his will for your life. he will make you end up in your certain place the certain place god was there the whole time because it was his place what is so interesting about certain places that it is god's decision it is god's decision for you to come to him because he has chosen one I am going to interrupt the madness in your life it is God's decision to make you come to a certain place because there they distract the destructive cycles that must be destroyed and that is why he brings you he puts you under arrest you end up in his custody because he asks you to listen to what he has to tell you you can't hear him in a crowd so he makes you come alone to a certain place and david said and it's in the text so he makes you lie down this is what i love about the text check this out now david now comes with his mental illusions his attitudes his feelings his thoughts catches us now and the mission teaches that and he came with the confusion in the compartment of his mind he came with him with all the bad thoughts in his head the chamber of his thoughts and he came uh with his mind being the receptacle of negativism he came and when he came with all this

trouble

look what happens he puts his head on a rock let me say it again messed up in your mind and you lean your head on a rock let me let me do bishop jake let me bring the thing to now on this rock i can't receive the revelation of what god is about to present to me what is new and unknown and that was unique and different if my head it is a mess with the past if my memory in my mind is full of confusion and chaos i cannot receive the revelation of what will happen next if my mind is confused and i cannot rest then god takes me to a certain place and makes me rest my brain rocks i can't hear about my future when everything in me is invested in my past so he takes me to a certain place jacob sleeps now he dreams i'm almost done now he dreams once in a while he sees this passage of these angels ascending and descending the ladder that goes from earth to heaven what matters is that the order of behavior of angels angels live in heaven so explain to me why they go up and down when they should be descending in us you are taught that uh heaven heaven and earth now the angels now the latter is now making the connection of what is uh uh heaven what is actual with what is potential what is a being with what is constantly becoming and what is uh uh the ability now the ability to move my mind from point a to point b that's the problem that's the power of the ladder makes me stop being earthly and consider what is heavenly and now the angels are ascending and descending the la The reason they are ascending first is because the literature teaches us that now they are taking what is on my mind, the problems in my life, they are taking them to God and God is sending the truth of my life. a.
I don't understand is this the only thing that has the ability to move my mind from point a to point b is god's truth the only thing that can confront a lie that has been told about you in your entire life is god's truth and you will know the and yesterday listen to this the angels are not carrying my problems they are not carrying because my problems they take my worries they take my pains they are not this is what i mean they are not bringing back god who was standing like him bishop and overseer at the top of the ladder don't give me back his answer in regards to my stuff, in fact he doesn't deal with his stuff, the given place is not about his stuff, it's not about his past , it's about your future now that might hurt some people because you want god to take care of your stuff but god says maybe if he showed you your future you would understand that your past doesn't matter anymore god is trying to tell us i know what to do with your failures us mistakes i know what to do with sin i know what to do with sinners that's not my problem that's not my concern here i came to let you know that your future has arrived so i bring you to a certain place so you don't abort your progress in your process and don't think that I brought you here to give you psychological therapy I brought you here because there is a generation that depends on you pulling yourself together hey god tell him tell jacob it's time for you to make history he knows and this is the promise I made to your father in genesis 15 to your grandfather in genesis 15. i passed it on to your father in genesis 26 says and now is your time i want you to be bold be brave gives a prophetic statement to the person sitting next to you on your right on your left and tells you that it is your moment to make history listen the reason why God cannot use your certain place as an opportunity to rehearse what happened to you in your house is because when you rest your head on the rock the revelation of what God is saying to you is the revelation n that on this rock god is about to build something new there is no pattern in your understanding there is no reference point for you to understand and become familiar with this because god is about to do god is not looking for people who are preservers of the institution he is looking for people who will risk building something new someone wants to make history by doing something new let me come home i'm done see jacob wake up all of h is out of his sleep he puts him to sleep so he doesn't interfere with the process lo puts him to sleep calls a certain place you have no opinion puts him to sleep because you have no vote when it comes to god's will takes him to a certain place because now heaven wants to interrupt time and now heaven wants to interrupt what's been going on on earth to introduce a character who will now change the winds of time andtakes him to a certain place he wakes up with a confession and proof of revelation the confession is the confession is in this certain place where i am with all my madness god was in this place but because i came with my madness i never knew you have to understand that you have to understand that because uh i i came to this certain place a balcony i didn't come looking for god i came because i was running i came because i was scared look at a certain place it's not about you finding god it's about god finding you you see why in a certain place i am so full of my own thoughts my own emotions my own attitude my desires i cant see myself in god so it takes god to show me in it cause i blinded myself so i confessed god was here heres the problem i wrestle with bissell jakes if god was in this place and i didn't know how many other places how many other places god has been but because i wasn't paying attention i miss god tell someone who you have to pay attention to the revelation the revelation I'm done I'm just leaving the revelation god was here the confession didn't know how to listen to this listen to this and this is what you have to get god is in the place now he realizes that god was in this place so no god calls the place bethel you missed it in other words i have the authority that wherever i am always just the way i am i can declare wherever i go this is bethel let me help you understand it no no let me help you understand, you don't know your body is the temperature, in other words let me help you, jacob didn't build the altar. in a church he did not build that altar in a synagogue he built the altar in the desert in other words there were no walls there was no cross there was no bible and he built an altar and called the place bethel i came to tell you that you are too busy wait until you get to the church to build the altar but better learn how to build our altar at home you are going to learn how to build an altar at work you are going to learn how to preach and have a church while you are at home anyone can build an altar now let me let me change that Why would you build an altar in a place that already has an altar?
If you are going to be an altar builder, you need to build altars in the world, look, the problem is that you don't know that God is in that place because you are in the place where you refuse to build the altar and you call that place Bethel, so you have to wait until you come to church to bring people to be saved and wait until you come to church to lay hands on people and help people heal and wait until you come to church uh to lay hands and the council no no i did not come to g i give you permission and i give you the authority because i am a bishop wherever you find

trouble

i suggest you build an altar and declare this is bethel god said i am ordained and anointed i am calling I am selecting I am choosing altar builders you this type of altar builder you cannot be if you are still waiting for a title and a position in the church these are people who know I can build an altar in the inf hell if i have to and i got to a certain place this certain place is where god makes all things new and god starts talking to you about your future and what role you were supposed to play in the future of generations to come i came telling someone to stop dwelling on their past served its purpose because the job of the confusion of their past was to chase them to their appointed place tonight god is speaking to me and god says tell the church that you are about to do all the new things to see that one for all, not just opportunities and doors, but more importantly, god is about to give you a new voice there is a new sound coming out of your womb there is a new flow of the edges that are coming out of your womb the rivers in your belly are being redirected while now it's not to impress the church people because god is going to let them build an altar in the world tonight the altar call the call to The altar is for the saints and he seems to know that they have reached their certain place, they have two seconds to come to the altar and when you come you come with your hands up and the Lord says I release you from your fight to get positions in dysfunctionalism i free you from fighting to take a place in failure that's why things are getting crazy because it's dragging you to your certain place it's bringing you to itself and so we pull up our pants since i am the temple my responsibility is to open the doors and the doors of the temple on my lips and I speak life outside the doors outside the lips of the temple outside o If rivers of living water will flow from my womb I command the church open the doors of the temple and begin to speak with God open the doors gates of the temple and water will flow from the temple of god i put life in your mouth life is in your mouth life is in your mouth it is in your hands now it is in your hands now you better open the doors you better open the doors you have 60 seconds you have 60 seconds life is on your tongue life is on your tongue life is in your mouth so we open the temple doors let the temple warnings flow we have 30 seconds now now listen i'm going to ask you to do something that will sound strange but you should understand you should understand it for now for about 30 seconds.
I want you to be brave enough to thank God for trouble ten more foreign seconds. You know what God told me. God told me in the night season. The night you cried I'm going to let your tears be redeemable time and add it to your life because I dare not bless you and you don't live to enjoy uh throw your arms around someone's neck and tell them to rejoice you have come to your set place be happy you've come to your set place go back to your seat so you might see this i need to hear some compliments from someone who is on the night leg someone on your night leg you need to hit god the same praise you'll give them during the day give them in the night time cause it's the same god the same dogs i need about 50 people throw your head back and yell for god one thing thank you come on someone , you have 30 seconds, you have 30 seconds, we are dancing in our determined place, this is a dance in heaven. why did you come here it's all about god before you sit down beg your neighbor this next praise is all god proceeded you can sit down maybe you see we have to go we have to go so we hope someone yells think someone yells knew someone yells next someone hi ler now yeah you might be watching y'all could sit down for real real your rookie has come his legs have come and he's coming he can take his seat one more time see see once in a while you must learn how to praise god with b3 dollar and some instruments because you don't have all that in your place oh listen you can continue praising god while you dance i need about 10 people to come place your seat at the altar i'm giving a hundred and no stop praising God because we planted seeds.
