Praise God you know it's so amazing when you have certain resources that you can dr.
savelleand i were talking he was in oru and visiting dr. Roberts and he told him this and he shares this account which is in his book about show me your glory but he said sometimes I'm so jealous or envious in the sense that my wife has to be in those big tent crusades but I never he did and so dr. Roberts says if you'd like to see some of the crusades in the tent, we'll set up a projector and play the videos, so he took it to a special filing place and started setting up the projector as the students started. treadmill and it sat there for hours and he and he shared this with me this morning i said i sat there and cried like a baby watching the signs the wonders the miracles is something about the anointing that whether you're listening to it on a dvd that read the anointing and a book whatever it is has no expiration date so there is only so much as Ken was saying there is only so much it can pour out on you right here and now but take some things home because the revelation that God has given this great man in more than 50 years of ministry.
I think he could help some of you. How many believes that he can show you a few things about favor? I mean, come on, I've read your book on favor more than once and I say you every time I read it something new jumps out at me and I keep declaring God's favor over my
lifeand over this church these are things that have priceless and you'll be drinking from wells you didn't dig and you're eating fruit from a vine you didn't pay the price to produce the fruit all you have to do is be wise enough to get the things dr.

lifeman of God dr.
Jerry Savelle it's good to be back with you amen smell someone's true fans and tell them you're in the right place this morning. God is going to do something that you will like. introduction and the invitation to return and praise this morning. I didn't know they were going to be here. I started a church in Crowley, Texas, which is a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, over 20 years ago and I am not the senior pastor. I'm the founding pastor, I'm actually the worst assistant member there because I go somewhere every Sunday, I can only preach there about eight ten times a year, but we have wonderful pastors, they're amazing pastors, and they're here. this morning amen now that fort worth is in a different time zone.
I got to see the nine o'clock service this morning and Erica was speaking, but this is our senior pastors, Justin and Annette. Amen I didn't know you. You were going to be here. It's a big surprise when I look down and they brought my grandson. Come here and give me a good hug. This is Bryn. eight job chapter eight contrary to the opinion of most
christians there are some good things about joe and by way of introduction let me introduce this morning's message by sharing these thoughts with you each year since 1991 i have received a prophetic
wordi must take To the body of Christ around the world, Brother Copeland prophesied about me and I probably mentioned this to you the last time I was here, but it's my sermon.
I want to hear it again. preaching with him in the Commission of believers in Fort Worth Texas and when he was about to get off the platform he stopped and suddenly said Jerry wait before you start the
wordof the Lord has come to me and this is the joke of what he said it was quite long but this is the most important part he said that God is moving you into a new dimension starting today and you will be a seer in the spiritual realm and God will reveal things to come to you and then make you responsible for sharing them with the body of Christ wherever I send you and then shortly after I was in Los Angeles preaching all over the Los Angeles neighborhood and I had a night off on a Saturday night and I knew Kenneth Hagin was going to be in Riverside, California.
I didn't tell Brother Hagin that he was coming. I didn't tell anyone on his staff that I was coming, but I had that Saturday night off and wanted to be at Brother Hagin's meeting, so I managed to get to Riverside. I was staying in Los Angeles and preached for 50 Years in the LA area so I know how long it takes to get from LA to Riverside even considering the heavy traffic and I don't like being late so I left I thought early enough to get your own time actually , I like to get there early b But it turned out that I ended up being there and I was late, the service had already started and I didn't even get there until an hour later, so when I walked in the door I thought Brother Hagin would already be preaching, but for to my surprise he was still sitting on the platform looking at his bible the rhema singers were still singing so when i walked through the door i didn't want to create any kind of disturbance so i just looked for a place in the last row for to sin while I'm looking for a place to sit apparently brother Hagin raised his head and saw me and stood up said can you stop now he's here brother Jerry God told me you'd be here I have a word for you he said come here so I went there and brother Hagin said basically the same thing that brother Copeland had said just a month before, but then brother Hagin added this and said now you've been holding back and now it's time for you to move up and come out with this new anointing and then shortly after that, I was back in California in Anaheim and I got a call Thursday morning from all the Robert brothers, brother Robert said, what are you preaching again, I said tonight, He said we'll save a place for Evelyn and I to sit next to his wife.
Carolyn, we'll be there tonight to hear it. I said yes sir. He said that I said that if he arrives early, go into the speaker's room so I can greet him before leaving, so they did and then an usher brought him out. sat next to my wife Carolyn after the service brother Roberts came up to me and said I'm not going to tell you what I heard and when I saw it tonight I'll write it to you in a letter so expect to get a letter from me next week what's coming when you get home so when i got home there was a letter waiting for me a four page handwritten letter from Oral Roberts now i'm not going to tell you everything he said but the most important part was he said while i watched you preach and heard you preach tonight I saw you preach under a new anointing it was a prophetic anointing and I encourage you to go up in the pulpit every time you go to the pulpit and preach under a prophetic anointing so my three mentors Kenneth Copeland Kenneth Hagin and Oral Roberts my three main mentors when I started in the ministry in 1969, everyone saw the same thing at basically the same time and with a little different wording, but from that point on in 1991, I began to set aside a special time to look for l Lord regarding what is on your agenda, you know that Jesus said that when the Holy Spirit comes, He will not only lead and guide you into all truth, but He will also show you things to come, thank you for your enthusiasm , he will show you things to come, it should not surprise us that God shows us what is on his agenda.
And I appreciate all that excitement. God wants us to be informed. I like to say it this way. If you are informed, you will be informed. Amen. I like to be informed. I don't like being the last. one to find out what God is up to I want to be an Insider you know Peter James and John seemed to be Insiders and I always wanted to be an Insider so the Lord started doing this in my ministry and I was given a special time during the month of October every year. seek the Lord as to what is on his agenda for the coming new year and he has always been faithful to do it and everywhere I have preached that prophetic word that happened in my life and it happened in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people all over the world and in 2019 I was going to Australia with brother Copeland and we were doing a victory campaign there on the Gold Coast of Australia and we were on his plane and we flew out of Fort Worth and flew to Honolulu to refuel and we were just out of the plane for about an hour and a half, then we went back up and flew the rest of the way to go to the coast and somewhere over the Pacific Ocean brother Copeland, I'm just talking and sharing and preaching to each other. and finally he said brother Gerry, I call him brother, he says, Gerry, it's okay, and I respect your anointing in your office, and he said, Jerri, I'm going to go lie down and take a nap, and he said if I don't you do, there is certainly a place for you. take a nap i also told him, go ahead sir, i'm going to sit here and i was reading a book before starting this flight, i could read a few more chapters of this book if i get sleepy.
I'm going to lay back in this seat and close my eyes and get some rest, but go ahead and help yourself praise God, he did and only moments after he'd read a couple more chapters of that book. I just tipped the seed back and relaxed and it couldn't have been more than 15 seconds. I just closed my eyes and suddenly I heard the Lord say that in 2020 I will open a new door and cause my people to have a supernatural increase like never before. Oh, thank God, sleep was no longer a miss. I got up and began researching the word, praying, and taking notes. and I knew that was what he wanted me to preach, it came a month ahead of schedule, hallelujah, so I started preaching it there at that meeting in Australia and I have preached it everywhere.
I've been around the world since September 9, 2019 and that's what I want to establish in this meeting this morning and tonight too I'll make it this morning I'll never make it I just have to find a place to stop so let's build a basis for it, you need to know what is god's will if you don't already know it is god's will that you experience a supernatural increase god never intended for you to barely survive never amen it has never been his will that you barely get it back it is never it has been his will that you simply exist it has been his will all along that you prosper to succeed increase and praise God it is time for a supernatural increase like we have never experienced before now i have experienced an increase since i have been in the ministry and as you said the pastor I am in 2019 I represented my 50th year in the ministry I am in my 51st year on February 11 my 51st year in the ministry began and God has brought increase to my life and ministry since I've been in ministry now it didn't happen overnight but it didn't take long because once I got into the Word of God and found out that this was God's will for my life I don't know what you're like when you get into God's Word and you get a revelation but even though I'm small in stature I got a bulldog tenacity amen I used to box when I was in college and I love to fight.
I said what a good fight of faith he said oh it's a fight you win when I'm all a boy. I said, okay, praise God. Then I remembered when I was in college and I was boxing. I came home sometimes and my nose is broken. here and my eyes are swollen and my dad would say son what are you learning in college? I said I'm trying to learn how you duck dad said well you won if I don't win I won't talk about it but if I win you can't shut me up so this morning I win and you can't shut me up a little bit praise God so let's look first of all at the book of Job and it says in chapter 8 and verse 7 even though the beginning was small but that letter should grow a lot even though the beginning was small we all started small you know I didn't have the ministry I have today when I started fifty-seven years ago one year old I began my ministry 51 years ago on the streets of Shreveport Louisiana where I grew up I had previously owned an auto business and have been running from God since 1957 I Heard God's call watching Royal Roberts on TV and that was not what I wanted do.
I didn't want to preach. It had never occurred to me that one day I would preach. But in 1957, watching all of Roberts' television, I heard the call. God, but that's not what I want to do. God was messing up my plans, so I never told anyone about it, my parents, no one, no one knew what I had experienced and I thought, like a 10 11 year old, yeah i never tell anyone about this then i won't have to and god will realize i made a mistake and find someone who really wants to do that because i already had my life planned out my dad was in the auto business my dad fixed wrecked cars I built race cars I built hot rods I restored classic cars and that's whatwhat i wanted to do and i wanted to own my own business doing that when i was 21 years old thats exactly what i was doing owning my own businessrestoring classic cars race cars helping my dad stop race cars all over the southern part of the los United States and I was living my dream but in 1969 brother Copeland came and I heard the word like never before and I couldn't I no longer run from God on February 11 3 in the morning I gave my life to the Lord and surrendered to God's call of my life I have now closed my business and started preparing for the full time ministry and I spent the next three months in the spare room of my house from 6 in the morning to 5 in the evening studying the Word of God.
After 5 I would go out to dinner with my family. whatever they wanted me to do when they went to bed i went back to that room and started studying the word again most of the time my days would be on the word 8, 12, 15 hours a day when i would get out of that time of preparation 3 months later I had the fire god in my heart I had the Word of God in my heart the power of God in my hands and only one problem was not that of the soul to listen to a word that I had to say and there were only a few 4 people who thought I was stuck and two of them had started to falter but my wife believed in me hallelujah amen then i thought ok what i do now man i'm so full and i need a way out you know when they started inviting you to preach, how he started, so I went to church and the church my wife grew up in was a Pentecostal church his pastor Jack Moore knew all the great healing evangelists he was friends with all of them preached in his church my grumpy my wife grew up under an Alan Jack Co all Roberts all of them and he was friends with all of them so every once in a while some of these great men would come to church and I would ask them if I had a chance how did you get started when they started inviting you to come to talk and I would hear this most of the time just be patient my son just be patient I say okay I'll be patient so the next one would come and ask him the same thing how did you start when they started asking you to come preach just be patient my son just be patient i told my wife if i ask one more preacher how they started and when they invite you and he tells me to be patient i am almost slapping and asking god to forgive me later and i finally went to the lord one morning in that amazement i received You won't ask God for this revelation, you know, I went to the Lord one morning and he said why are you waiting why are you waiting for an invitation?
He told me there's a world out there waiting for you. or get out on the streets of your town so i started my ministry on the streets of shreveport louisiana 1969 preaching to drug addicts alcoholics prostitutes the hippie movement was on i had an audience amen and god was doing miracles on the streets now the church didn't want to listen nothing I had to say but the sinners did and the boys having a revival in the streets I mean he was having a torrent walking in the streets and then he filled it with the Holy Spirit bringing the church and sometimes the church didn't they didn't smell very good they didn't look very good and yet that's where I started the ministry and I remember I started leading the Lord to some of the biggest drug dealers in our city and I had never used drugs.
I couldn't tell one drug from another and I asked the Lord. I told him how I am going to reach these people. When I don't know anything about drugs he said it's not your knowledge of drugs that will win them over it's your knowledge of me take me to them hallelujah and so I was having miracles in the streets and these drug addicts would be released and one of them found out where he lived from and he came to my house and he had a bag full of drugs and he said brother Jerry all of a sudden I'm brother Jerry hallelujah and he said will you get rid of this for me?
I don't need them anymore I said sure so he brought several of his friends and they brought all their drugs and I'd get in my car at night and drive to the slums roll down the windows and let all the drugs wash away It never occurred to me that I could be arrested for possession. It never occurred to me that I could be arrested for possession, but I was having such success that our city police department started asking me to go preach in jail, so I I started preaching in jail and then the Sheriff's Department asked me to do it.
I started preaching in prisons, so I went to every prison in the whole state of Louisiana and had great success in prisons. The people who came out were healed and released. There was just one problem with street preaching to drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes, hippies and street preaching. jails and prison preaching the offerings are terrible no one had any money i said sir when do we get paid and one morning i will never forget it as long as i live i am watching old man roberts on tv 1969 and he had just come out he had just come out with his new book the miracle of seed of faith and he said in the transmission if you write to me and ask me for a copy of this I will send it to you absolutely free I turned to my wife and told her: here is one that we can pay for, ask for it and when that little book arrived at our house , I still have it to this day in my library.
I consumed it and I learned how to make God my source of supply having you and I will tell you that it changed my life from that moment God began to bring increase God be to bring increase I have experienced it over and over again I could tell you a few stories today I don't have time to do it but here to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck and take a week to get back on supernatural increase so when God told me supernatural increase like I've never experienced before, well, I don't want to go to sleep at night I don't want to miss anything if it's going to be like I've never experienced it before and what I've already experienced has been exaggerated, what do you think it has in store?
I know that God is about to open a new door and a supernatural increase is coming to you like never before. You say well, everyone in the body of Christ experienced it well. I wish I could say that this is true but it is not because the Bible says in the book of Hebrews chapter 4 and verse 2 if you mix faith with the preached word it works for you and not everyone mixes faith with the preached word amen there are many Christians I want say that's the toad they've preached that bow is kind of old now i've been in 3500 different churches and 46 different nations i've preached to
christians all over the world and not everyone believes it amen not all of them will receive it but those who do it and those who mix faith with it, then God will see to it that he confirms his word with signs after you say well, how do I mix faith with the preached word?
I'll show you to raise both hands to the right. now and just say it out loud beforehand before you hear any more of the message saying beforehand i receive it you just mix faith with it prepare to receive it amen now don't walk out of here with this attitude wasn't that a good little message that little preacher told us no it didn't do you any good you keep faith with it actually the way I keep faith with it the first thing I do is say get I did it on that plane when the Lord said: 'I will open a new door and the supernatural increase will come like never before.
I raised both hands and no one else on the plane knew what I was doing. I just put up both hands and said I'd get it when Brother Copeland got back. I preached it to him and he said I receive it amen so it takes more than just listening you need to listen but you need to mix faith with it the bible says those who didn't mix faith with it didn't benefit them i don't know about you but if i'm going to have a drink time of my life to go to church wanted to profit from me interested in profit ho As for you, I experienced enough losses.
I want to benefit. Praise God. Having said that, let's look at Job chapter 8 and verse 7 one more time. Although your beginning was small, they did not say that you will always be small. the start was small but that ladder should go up a lot everyone yells go up a lot that sounds like a little more than go up you know a lot is good but a lot more is even better amen i really like to go up hallelujah so notice he said your ladder will go up a lot my my wife thinks i'm a little weird sometimes i really enjoy getting old i just turned 73 in december i really like getting old i'm not complaining at all amen actually when i turned 73 i already hear myself talking about who i've come all the way to 74 and i'm looking forward to 75.
Amen. Brother Copeland turned 83 the same month and I'm 73. He's 10 and I am, and he's been preaching for quite some time that he's going. live to be a hundred and twenty years old and then he told them in Australia and Jerry will live to be a hundred and ten years old because I'm 10 years older than him and when I leave there is no need for him to stay he goes with me how do we do it I've been doing this together for 50 years we might as well date so I'll be a hundred and ten according to brother Copeland amen amen so I look forward to getting old because there's a lot of scripture in the bible that talks about god's promises for when you're older one of them says to flourish even in old age as i do i don't expect to get worse as i get older i hope to get better i don't expect to diminish as i get older i hope to greatly increase hallelujah amen and i'm holding on to God's promise remember this morning we sang about breakthrough I was coming back a few years ago I was preaching in a little town outside of Houston called Liberty Texas and I had preached at Lakewood Church with Joel O steen I have known Joel since he was a boy mr. he preached for his father John, brother John and I had preached at a couple other churches around and a pastor friend of mine from Liberty asked me he was at that meeting in Lakewood, he said he would consider staying one more night I know . you're supposed to go today would you stay one more night and preach at my church in liberty i said pastor i'm tired i mean i've been going for about nine days now i'm ready to go home saw brother
jerryjust one more night please , one more night.
I said ok so we went to Liberty and it's a small hotel and when I got in the room I unpacked nothing except my alarm clock and said I'll take an hour nap because there's a six o'clock service and only a few hours , maybe three hours before the service starts, if I don't have a 1 hour nap, then I'm not going to be in full throttle tonight, so I set my alarm clock for an hour and lay on that bed and I know more than I was lying there for five minutes and I had a divine apparition of the Lord I did not expect it I did not know that the glory of the Shekinah was going to happen it filled that room to the point that I could no longer see the furniture and the Lord spoke someone asked me, what how it see?
I forgot to look. I heard he was more interested in what he had to say amen because what he says is life changing amen and he said my people are experiencing lack and most of them don't know how to get over it and he said this he said I'm known as Salvador by many of them know me as Baptizer in the Holy Spirit some know me as healer some know me as deliverer he said but not all know me as the god of breakthrough said if they did they wouldn't give up so fast boy that hit me if you know to god as the god of breakthrough giving up is not an option amen and so he said go there tonight and tell them the god of breakthrough wants to visit their house oh man I was so excited I couldn't just wait to get into that service and then he said as he prayed and praised him he said now tell them this the depth of your praise will determine the extent of your breakthrough the depth of your praise will determine the extent of your breakthrough I learned a long, long time ago or that one of the greatest expressions of faith true biblical faith is when you can praise god before you see anything happen amen when you can praise him before you see anything happen how many of you could use some supernatural increase this year beyond any anything you have experienced before and if you trust in God, how many of you believe in God?
How many of you believe that He will make it happen for you? t just go ahead and give her some praise in advance give her some praise in advance hallelujah come on give her some praise in advance glory to god amen yes i want you to take this home we did it this afternoon can you sit down the depth of your praise will determine the magnitude of your breakthrough, how big of a breakthrough you need and someone said, as soon as that breakthrough comes, i'll really praise it, that's backwards, it's like walking up to the fireplace and saying give me some warmth and i'll throw some wood that's upside down it would be like this gentleman says brother
jerrybefore you leave town this is just an illustration no obligation before you leave town i'd like to buy you a new suit alright being the gentleman that i am i took his head and say thank you sir that is very kind of you i appreciate it and i notice he didn't have a suit yet i'm already thinking about him and no i don't even have the suit yet.
I really don't know him that well. I remember seeing it the last time I was here. I probably don't know if he has the means to do it.I really don't know if he's sincere. I guess. It's yI assume as the means to do it or he wouldn't have promised me the suit so I'm already thinking about it beforehand now, what would he think of men, what would he think of me if I said ok sir, if not? Never mind, I'll save the thanks and tell us look at the suit, you know what he would have every right to do, go home boy and learn some manners you ain't liking, come back showing some manners but we do.
God that way all the time good god as soon as my breakthrough comes as soon as that supernatural surge happens oh i'm gonna scream what are you waiting for if you really think it's going to happen why aren't you screaming now i said why don't you scream now hallelujah amen then the depth of your praise determines the magnitude of your breakthrough you could say it this way also the depth of your praise will determine how much supernatural increase you will experience now i am already experiencing it and multitudes of others already have experience i am receiving testimonies a all the time but this is not It's just a sermon to me.
I don't just preach these things, then I go and preach something else somewhere else and forget about it. No, this is life for me. I am a doer of the word. Amen, practice. what I preach how we have amen and I'm waiting on God because he has never failed me 51 years and he has never failed me 51 years and he has never let me down 51 years and I don't know anything about unanswered prayers hallelujah God has been faithful and if he has been to me faithful for 51 years, why can't i expect him to be faithful to me for the rest of my life? let's take a look at something else in psalm 115 we're laying a foundation this morning psalm 115 just a few pages down and let's look at verse 12 the Lord has remembered us he will bless us he will bless the house of Israel he will He will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the Lord, both small and great the Lord will make you grow more and more you and your children are blessed by the Lord who made heaven and earth notice the promise of God here it is speaking of the house of Aaron the house of Jacob is speaking of the pact people God will bless the pact people and the Apostle Paul picks this up and in the book of Galatians he tells us that we are pact people we are heirs of the blessing amen how many of you have made Jesus Lord of your life then you are heirs amen and you have as much right to the fulfillment of that as anyone else in this building amen now if you don't have a high estimate of yourself according to the Word of God .
I'm not talking about being proud but based on what God says about you and you think well Who am I am I'm just I'm just you know no one you've been born again so you're someone is jesus your lord so you're not someone how they hold your head up praise god bow your chest down give them the queen n's wave hallelujah you are royalty hallelujah you can say amen then but either way if you don't consider yourself you know on the same level as maybe other christians you think very well and consider yourself little good God has you covered he will bless you both the small and the great, but do not consider yourself small, get up to the level of God where he thinks of you, amen, and notice that he says: I will bless the people of the covenant. no matter what they think of themselves small or big and they say and i will increase you more and more you and your children are blessed of the lord who made heaven and earth now i said before i have experienced increase all these years but note it says more and more that means I haven't seen everything God intends to do yet I haven't seen it all either you no matter what spiritual level you are at have you ever seen everything God can do and the Apostle Paul tells us in his writing i n Corinthians I have not seen here I have not heard or ventilated in the heart of man that the things that God has prepared for those who love him there are things prepared for us I have your name on it I have my name on it I have I did not even conceive it in my honey i haven't even seen it we heard it with my ears but they are out there waiting for us amen and i think 2020 is a year we are going to get more out of it than ever. they do come on give a shout to the lord if you get it your hands are up right now and say hello get it and give another shout to the lord i will make you bigger and bigger praise god more and more hallelujah i like to say i was created to increase i was created to increase Do you know the book of Genesis chapter 1 in the beginning God created together with him created man and one of the first things God said to man after creating him God blessed him God blessed him and if you study the word bless means empower to prosper empower to excel empower to multiply and empower to increase also means empower to rise above what holds everyone else down so from the beginning god had it in his mind to increase god made adam and eve and god blessed them empowered the blessing is an empowerment amen and if you are born again it depends on you you entered here with that you will leave here with that you will go to bed tonight with that you will get up in the morning With that now most Christians don't know it and keep asking God to bless them.
I don't ask God to bless me. I thank God that he has. I thank God for this empowerment. Why am I asking him for something that he has already done. I mean, I understand, you know, but at the same time I want to, I want to get into this at the level of God if God blessed me and how God blessed Adam and Eve. they're just some best sellers so it was something they earned it wasn't something they necessarily deserved it wasn't because they're so good that God finally blessed them didn't he pronounce this blessing on them at the time he created them and intended that they lived under the blessing all the days of their lives amen now the curse only came when they messed it up amen but did you notice even though they messed it up and he started over with Noah if you go to chapter 9 of Genesis and It's talking about Noah and it says that God blessed Noah, so notice that God's plan never changed even though Adam and Eve failed as far as they were concerned, but when God presented himself to Noah, he did the same thing: knowing that he He did with Adam, he gave him the blessing, that is, I want you to excel, I want you to grow, I want you to grow. multiply i want you to rise above and boy did you ever rise above? amen a flood but it didn't stop with noah god introduces himself to abraham one of the first things he said to abram i will bless you then he said not only you but your seed and blessed is aac and he blessed jacob and all of you down the line and then Paul takes this back and says if you belong to Christ then you are the seed of Abraham hallelujah I am the seed of Abraham you are the seed of Abraham I have that same blessing on me that Abraham had on him hallelujah and it gave him power to grow in fact God told him this in Genesis chapter 12 I will give you power to grow and if you go to Genesis chapter 13 a chapter later verse 1 on 2 and Abraham increased in gold and silver and cattle and realized it only took one chapter to that the blessing produced increase.
I like to ask Christians how many chapters it will take. Amen. I was created to increase. You were created to increase. if you're not experiencing it. it's not god's fault two important things that will keep you from experiencing god's best number one lack of knowledge number two religious tradition amen lack of knowledge hosea now people are destroyed for lack of knowledge i like to say it this way my people never come into each other my prime when they lack knowledge if you don't know it is God's will for you to experience a surge then consequently it's not likely you will ever experience a surge to the extreme level but then the religious tradition knows thank goodness I am not thankful that I waited so long to give my life to the Lord, but I thank God that I had no religious tradition to unlearn when I gave my life to the Lord, amen, I was bible illiterate as a brother.
Copeland would say that he was not steeped in religious tradition. I didn't know anything until I started going to church and found out that all this had happened. it is not the will of God. I was so amused when I went to church and everyone had this really weird way of saying Lord and on the street, you know, they only talk about the street, but then they went into the church. God's will became very religious. and i remember asking my wife in those early days sunday night the pastor would have a testimony service every sunday night so he invited people to come and testify so i'm new to this I just observe that I'm sitting there in church and a testimony to me is something you witnessed, you know, because you had to testify in court before, so I thought of testimony as something that you had experienced, you had witnessed, well, they stood up to give a testimony and that's how pastor started almost every time the devil visited our house this week, bless his holy name.
I said Carolyn. Did they just bless the devil? No, that's not what they meant, well, that's what they said. you visited our house this week bless your holy name and know everyone in our family got sick husband couldn't go to work and it cost us a lot but we all know everyone would end this but we all know and said with some courage a but we all know our god is capable then the next one gets up and it's like they're trying to outdo each other oh you think the one from the one visited your house you should have been at our house and they would all end the same way oh , but we all know that our God is capable and I missed this week after week and I finally told Carolyn that I said tonight after the testimony service that I'm going to go up and ask some of those people and I'm just going to ask her this question. if he she said what do you mean I said well everyone ends with everyone we know that our God is capable I want to know if God did what they said he could do to me that would be the real testimony amen and so I did she She said don't embarrass me I'm not going to embarrass you but I just want to know what you know and I went up to this lady that you know everyone refers to as one of the pillars of the church I said ma'am you testified tonight that the devil visited your house she made everyone will get sick her husband could not work and this that and the other and then in the end you said but we all know that our God is capable I said yes he said yes he said yes what I said God did what you said he is capable of doing and this is what that I have an answer.
Oh, you never know what God is going to do. I thought: why do I want to listen to these people? Why do I want to follow someone in this group? If you never know what God is going to do. Why serve you? one day i got this brilliant brilliant revelation where you do if you read his book because the bible is a revelation of not just what god can do it's a revelation of what he will do how they do to you amen and did you notice here? that the lord will not do it we know we can the lord will make it grow more and more how they do it that means he is willing to do it he can do it all you have to do is receive it and bless it in advance for do it right now give it your best shout hallelujah Amen glory to God you know you can't even have Trust a friend if you never know what that friend could do.
Religious tradition has stolen more of God's blessings from God's people than perhaps anything else. Lack of religious knowledge and tradition. Amen. If you have any religious tradition, just throw it aside. dare to make the Word of God the final authority amen final authority do not go around saying as I have heard people say well God said it I believe it and that solves it you were not wrong God said it that solves it what to do believe it or not you believe it is convenient for you amen then if you want to say something like that say it like that God said it that settles it I believe it and I will receive it as they do amen do it from God Word of final authority and particularly in the day and hour in which we live when there is so much uncertainty that you know the stock market just went down again it's been going down all week one day it went up the next day it's the cause of all this that's going on this virus and eva everything you can't you can't look at the man you can't look to the systems of man because it changes all the time but the Word of God is forever established in heaven no work not even a tilde will ever happen that is reading I build my life So says the Word of God hallelujah amen do you ever see Have you noticed my bank that I have been doing business with in Fort Worth since I moved to Fort Worth in 1970? that where your bank changed its name why do you suppose they changed the name of the bank because the grass withers the flower fades that means everything on this planet is subject to change I grew up early in my 1718 years I worked at a Pontiac dealer the same Dealership my father worked at when I was a kid doing paint and bodywork.
I thought Pontiac was like the Rock of Gibraltar and then one day they're gone. of the old cars before they went bankrupt are still here I still drive 65 GTO's that's how they do amen to you but you can't buy a new Pontiac because you can't there are new Pontiacs they stopped making them amen so why do the banks keep changing their names there is no stability why would you want to trust the bank when they changed their name and some of them would change their male name every two or three four years forWhy would I want to trust the company that keeps changing its name why would I put my my my future in the hands of someone I don't know what he's going to do one day to the next but god but god he doesn't change amen he doesn't change I like you remember Charles Charles Capps is one of My dear friends, we preached together throughout the state of Arkansas, particularly throughout the state of Arkansas, in the early days and Charles Capps had a haircut and people would ask him and in fact the whole world grows hair Charles when I met him. he my hair was over my ear s Charles used to say I knew Jerry when he didn't have ears, yeah that was the style. pants yeah god she looked like she had no feet hip hugger i felt like she was falling on why is she preaching long hair i hate those pictures i hope none of them are in that scrapbook anyway charles I used to say, I'm like God. in Charles his house once that's the Charles I need to get a haircut there's a good barbershop in in England Arkansas he said oh yeah I'll take care of it in the morning we went there there isn't a little barbershop England Arkansas just outside of Little Rock I went in there the barber got a haircut seven men lined up to get haircuts all got haircuts charles got a haircut i said charles i think i'll wait till i get home said mama jerry we're all here in england arkansas we're like god that just ain't amen , well, God is a trustworthy God is trustworthy His word is forever established in heaven and if God said I will increase you more and more then as far as I am concerned that establishes it that establishes it amen and you lost the good opportunities add him and him received amen so god wants us to increase we haven't seen all the increase he intends for us to experience so i want you to stand up right now and give the Lord your best cry in advance for the increase you are going to experience. this year, hallelujah, amen, does anyone have a translation of the message here this morning.
