Pastor Kenneth Copeland reflects on the miracles he’s seen during his 45 years in the ministry. Read Transcript


UNTIL CHRISTY FOLLOWED THE

ELDEST OF HER THREE

DAUGHTERS OUTSIDE THAT SHE

UNDERSTOOD THE PANIC IN HER

VOICE.

I KEPT SAYING, WHERE IS

ANNABELLE?

AND I WAS LOOKING AROUND.

AT THE SAME TIME, THEY BOTH

POINTED TO THIS MASSIVE TREE

AND THEY SAID, SHE IS IN THE

TREE, IN UNISON.

AND IT IS LIKE EVERYTHING

SLOWED DOWN AND CAME TO A

SCREECHING HALT.

Reporter: 8-YEAR-OLD

ANNABELLE HAD FALLEN INTO A

COTTONWOOD TREE SHE AND HER

SISTER HAD BEEN CLIMBING AND

PLUNGED TO THE BOTTOM.

CHRISTY CALLED HER HUSBAND,

WHO RACED HOME TO SAVE HIS

DAUGHTER.

I WANTED MORE THAN

ANYTHING TO REACH DOWN AND

BRING HER UP, AND IT WAS

PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

CHRISTY CALLED 9-1-1.

KEVIN LOOKED FOR SIGNS HIS

DAUGHTER WAS ALIVE.

ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

MOMENTS IN MY LIFE IS SHE

JUST RAISED HER LITTLE LEFT

ARM AND THEN PUT IT BACK

DOWN.

I KNEW AT THAT POINT SHE WAS

ALIVE.

Reporter: THE VOLUNTEER

FIRE DEPARTMENT ARRIVED AND

QUICKLY ASSESSED THE

SITUATION.

WE COULD SEE HER WIN

FLASHLIGHTS, ENOUGH OF HER

BODY TO SEE SHE DIDN'T

APPEAR TO HAVE ANY MAJOR

HEMORRHAGING.

Reporter: STILL, THE

RESCUE WOULD TAKE TIME AND

EXTREME CAUTION.

BECAUSE THE TREE WAS

ROTTEN, WE DIDN'T WANT TO

RISK CUTTING ANYTHING OUT

BECAUSE WE WERE AFRAID THING

WERE START FALLING IN ON

HER.

Reporter: AS THE FAMILY

LOOKED ON, THERE WAS ONLY

ONE THING THEY COULD DO.

I JUST STARTED PRAYING,

REALLY JUST CRYING OUT, GOD,

PLEASE BE WITH HER.

GOD, PLEASE HELP HER.

AND I TEXTED MY DAD AND I

TEXTED KEVIN'S MOM, AND I

SAID PRAY.

Reporter: INSIDE THE

TREE, ANNABELLE WAS IN AND

OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS AS SHE

ATTEMPTED TO CLIMB OUT.

I REMEMBER SEEING THIS

LITTLE THING THAT JUTTED OUT

OF THE TREE.

AND THE WHOLE ENTIRE TIME, I

TRIED TO GET UP TO THAT.

I WAS CLIMBING UP, AND I

DIDN'T QUITE REACH THAT

THING BECAUSE IT WAS SO

MUDDY.

I WOULD FALL OFF AND THEN I

WOULD PROBABLY HIT MY HEAD

OR SOMETHING AND THEN BLACK

OUT AGAIN.

Reporter: FIREFIGHTERS

WERE FINALLY ABLE TO

COMMUNICATE WITH ANNABELLE.

THEY CREATED A MAKESHIFT

HARNESS AND LOWERED IT DOWN

TO HER.

THEY SET IT UP LIKE A

PULLEY, BUT THEY MADE IT

INTO A SEAT THAT I HAD TO

SIT INSIDE, AND THEN THEY

WOULD PULL ME UP.

I WAS RELIEVED BECAUSE I

KNEW, OH, I'M FINALLY GOING

TO GET OUT OF HERE.

Reporter: AFTER NEARLY

FOUR HOURS, RESCUE WORKERS

PULLED HER OUT OF THE TREE.

I WAS HAPPY AND GRATEFUL

THEY GOT HER OUT.

THANK YOU, GOD.

THANK YOU, GOD.

SHE LOOKED PERFECT.

WE WERE ALL VERY EXCITED

AND ESTATIC SHE WAS NOT

HARMED ANY WORSE THAN SHE

WAS.

NO BROKEN BONES.

NO PARALYSIS, WAS NOTHING

SHORT OF MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: EVEN THE

DOCTORS WHO EXAMINED HER AT

THE HOSPITAL HAD NO

EXPLANATION WHY SHE WASN'T

SEVERELY INJURED.

THE DOCTOR SAID, YOU

KNOW, MOM, JESUS MUST HAVE

BEEN WITH THAT LITTLE GIRL

IN THAT TREE BECAUSE WE

DON'T EVER HAVE ANYBODY FALL

30 FEET AND NOT SUFFER

PARALYSIS OR BROKEN BONES.

Reporter: BUT THEY

BELIEVE THERE WAS ANOTHER

MIRACLE THAT DAY.

ANNABELLE TOLD HER MOM AT

ONE POINT SHE MET JESUS.

WHENEVER I WAS IN THAT

TREE, I WENT TO HEAVEN.

AND I REMEMBER IT WAS REALLY

BRIGHT.

AND I SAW MY NANA, WHO HAD

DIED A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK,

AND THAT'S HOW I KNEW I WAS

IN HEAVEN.

AND I SAT ON JESUS' LAP, AND

HE SAID, WHENEVER THE

FIREFIGHTERS GET YOU OUT,

THERE WILL BE NOTHING WRONG

WITH YOU.

Reporter: FOR SEVERAL

YEARS, ANNABELLE HAD BEEN

SUFFERING WITH SEVERE

INTESTINAL DISORDERS.

SHE WAS CONSTANTLY IN PAIN

AND IN AND OUT OF

HOSPITALS.

THE DOCTORS SAID THERE WAS

NO CURE.

HER STOMACH COULD

PHYSICALLY TAKE FOOD IN, BUT

IT COULDN'T DO ANYTHING WITH

IT AFTER THAT.

SHE HAD SOME DAYS SHE COULD

GO OUT AND PLAY AND BE LIKE

HER SISTERS, AND THEY WERE

ALWAYS ENCOURAGING HER.

THEY WERE PROBABLY SOME OF

HER BEST MEDICINE.

IT WAS PROBABLY AT LEAST 10

DAYS OR MORE AFTER THE

ACCIDENT BEFORE I REALLY

STARTED TO KIND OF ASSESS

THE FACT THAT SHE HAD NEVER

GONE THIS LONG WITHOUT

HURTING.

SHE HAD NEVER GONE THIS LONG

WITHOUT HAVING A FLAREUP OF

HER STOMACH.

Reporter: DOCTORS HAD

NO ANSWER FOR WHY ANNABELLE

SHOWED NO SIGNS OF HER

AILMENTS.

THEY STARTED SLOWLY TAKING

HER OFF MEDICATIONS.

WE DROPPED ONE MEDICATION

AFTER ANOTHER AWAY.

AND ANNABELLE ENDED UP ON --

SHE'S ON ZERO MEDICATIONS

TODAY.

SHE DOESN'T GO TO A

SPECIALIST ANYMORE.

SHE DOESN'T GO TO DOCTORS

FOR MEDICATION ANYMORE.

SHE HAS BEEN RELEASED.

Reporter: TODAY

ANNABELLE IS EATING WELL AND

VERY ACTIVE.

IT WAS JUST SO MUCH FUN

BECAUSE I COULD MAKE UP FOR

ALL OF THE TIMES THAT I WAS

SICK ON THE COUCH.

Reporter: THE BEAMS

HAVE LEARNED FROM THEIR

EXPERIENCE THAT GOD IS

ALWAYS THERE.

THEY TELL THE STORY OF

ANNABELLE'S JOURNEY IN THE

BOOK "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

HE IS POWERFUL AND

AMAZING AND HE IS BIG, BUT

HE IS ALSO SO TENDER AND SO

INTIMATE THAT HE KNEW

ANNABELLE SO WELL, AND HE

LOVED HER SO MUCH, BUT HE

GAVE HER BACK.

I JUST HOPE THAT PEOPLE

WHO ARE GOING THROUGH WHAT I

DID, OR ANY HARD TIME OF

STRUGGLE, KEEP FAITH IN GOD

AND REALIZE THAT HE IS NOT

JUST FORGETTING ABOUT YOU.

AND HE REALLY DOES KNOW

ABOUT YOU.

AND HE REALLY DOES CARE.

AND HE HAS A PLAN.

AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP FAITH

IN HIM.

Gordon: OUT OF THE

MOUTH OF BABES.

HE KNOWS THE VERY HAIRS ON

OUR HEAD.

AND WE HAVE A SPECIAL

GUEST.

HE IS AN AUTHOR, RECORDING

ARTIST, AND EVEN A PILOT.

HE IS BEST KNOWN AS

"BELIEVERS' VOICE OF

VICTORY" TELEVISION SHOW AND

FOR HIS WORLDWIDE MINISTRY

WHERE HE ENCOURAGES OTHERS

TO EXPECT MIRACLES.

AND IT IS AN HONOR TO HAVE

YOU.

KENNETH COPELAND IS WITH

US.

GORDON, THANK YOU, SIR.

IT'S MY PLEASURE.

Gordon: HOW DID YOU GET

TO THE POINT WHERE YOU COULD

BELIEVE FOR MIRACLES?

WELL, I HAD A WONDERFUL

INTRODUCTION TO MIRACLES.

I, OF COURSE, WAS RAISED IN

A FAMILY THAT BELIEVED IN

MIRACLES.

AND I WENT TO ORAL ROBERTS'

UNIVERSITY, AND I WAS 30

YEARS OLD, THE OLDEST

FRESHMAN IN THE WORLD.

THE DAY I REGISTERED,

BROTHER ROBERTS HIRED ME AS

PART OF THE FLIGHT CREW.

GOD JUST BLESSED ME BEYOND

MEASURE, AND PLUGGED ME INTO

THAT ENVIRONMENT IN 1967.

WELL, JUST RIGHT OFF OF THE

BAT, I WAS INSTRUCTED -- MY

BOSS CAME TO ME AND HE SAID,

NOW, LOOK, WE WANT YOU IN

THE INVALID ROOM.

THEY HAD PEOPLE THAT CAN'T

MANAGE THOSE LARGE CROWDS, A

LOT OF THEM AMBULATORY AND

THAT KIND OF THING.

AND HE SAID, THERE IS

SPEAKERS IN THERE, AND WE

WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO THE

MESSAGE THAT BROTHER ROBERTS

PREACHES, AND YOU OUTLINE

IT.

AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE ABOUT FIVE TO SEVEN

MINUTES, BECAUSE HE IS GOING

TO COME IN HERE AS SOON AS

HE GETS THROUGH PREACHING,

AND HE IS GOING TO PRAY FOR

THESE PEOPLE BEFORE HE GOES

OUT AND PRAYS FOR THE

OTHERS.

AND YOU GET THEM READY TO

HAVE HANDS LAID ON THEM.

Gordon: OKAY.

WELL, MAN --

Gordon: THAT'S AN

INTERESTING JOB.

I'M TELLING YOU, THE VERY

FIRST ONE, SHE HAD A

MALIGNANT TUMOR IN HER

STOMACH.

AND WEIGHED ABOUT 75 POUNDS,

JUST THE PICTURE OF DEATH.

AND I KNOW YOU'VE SEEN THESE

KIND OF PEOPLE AND THE

COMPASSION OF GOD GOES ALL

OVER YOU WHEN YOU SEE THIS.

WELL, HE WALKED IN AND HE

SURVEYED THE ROOM, AND HE

TURNED TO ME AND HE SAID,

NOW YOU'RE GOING TO DO THE

PRAYING AND YOU'RE GOING TO

DO THE LAYING ON HANDS.

GORDON, I NEVER PRAYED FOR

ANYBODY OR ANYTHING LIKE

THIS.

I'M JUST CHANGING COLORS, I

CAN TELL.

[LAUGHTER]

HE LAUGHED AND HE SAID,

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE, I'LL

FIX IT.

I'LL BE RIGHT HERE.

WELL, THEN HE IMMEDIATELY

STARTED TOWARDS HER.

AND SHE WAS ON THIS LITTLE

MILITARY KIND OF A COT.

AND HER NURSE WAS THERE, AND

HER NURSE HELPED HOLD HER UP

WHERE SHE COULD GET HANDS

LAID ON HER.

AND I SAID, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS -- AND THAT'S AS FAR

AS I GOT.

MAN, HE WAS STANDING RIGHT

HERE.

AND IT JUST -- THE POWER OF

THE GLORY OF GOD IN HIS

WORDS JUST KIND OF SHOOK THE

AIR OUT OF THE ROOM.

HE SAID, YOU FOUL, UNCLEAN

SPIRIT, TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF

OF GOD'S PROPERTY NOW!

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WHO'S

I AM AND WHO I SERVE.

AND SHE BLEW THAT TUMOR OUT

ON THE FLOOR.

WELL, IT JUST WENT ALL OVER

THAT ROOM.

JUST ALL KINDS OF MARVELOUS,

WONDERFUL THINGS WERE TAKING

PLACE.

NOW, THAT WAS MY

INTRODUCTION.

Gordon: WOW!

AND I WAS JUST STUNNED IN

THE PRESENCE OF HIM.

WELL, OVER THE YEARS HE AND

I BECAME VERY, VERY CLOSE.

HE IS MY SPIRITUAL FATHER.

AND I HAD A LOT OF

OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH

HIM CONCERNING MIRACLES

BECAUSE, MAN, GORDON, HE'S

LIKE YOUR DAD.

HIS FAVORITE SAYING IS,

"YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET A

MIRACLE IF YOU DON'T EXPECT

A MIRACLE."

AND YOU OUGHT TO EXPECT A

MIRACLE EVERY DAY.

EVERY DAY GOD INTERVENES IN

SOME WAY.

Gordon: WE'RE STILL

LIVING IN BIBLICAL TIMES.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND THAT EXPECTANCY IS

VITAL.

Gordon: HOW DID YOU GO

FROM THAT EXPERIENCE TO YOU

CAN DO THAT?

WELL, THE PRIMARY MUST,

CAN'T DO WITHOUT ELEMENT IN

ALL OF THIS IS THE WORD OF

GOD.

Gordon: UH-HUH.

AND AT THE SAME TIME THAT

I WAS AT ORAL ROBERTS'

UNIVERSITY, WE BECAME VERY

CLOSE TO BROTHER AND SISTER

HAGEN, KENNETH HAGEN.

AND THE EMPHASIS IS ALWAYS

ON THE WORD OF GOD.

THE WORD IS FIRST PLACE,

FINAL AUTHORITY.

THE MIRACLES ARE IN THE

WORD.

Gordon: UH-HUH.

SO RIGHT THEN -- NOW,

GORDON, I DIDN'T HAVE ANY

RELIGION IN ME, MAN.

[LAUGHTER]

Gordon: THAT WOULD BE A

GOOD THING.

I REBELLED AT A YOUNG

AGE, AND I WOULD NOT

RECOMMEND THAT TO ANYBODY.

IT WASN'T MY MOTHER AND

DAD'S FAULT I TURNED OUT THE

WAY I DID.

BUT THEN GOD GOT AHOLD OF

ME.

I MARRIED A FINE WOMAN, AND

BETWEEN HER AND JESUS, THEY

JERKED A LOT OF SLACK OUT OF

ME, MAN.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE ANY

RELIGIOUS REJECTION ABOUT

THE MIRACULOUS OR THE WORD

OF GOD.

I DIDN'T HAVE THAT TO

OVERCOME.

AND SO RIGHT AWAY, THROUGH

BROTHER HAGEN'S MINISTRY,

AND THROUGH BROTHER ROBERTS'

MINISTRY -- IT WAS THE SAME

WITH HIM, THAT THE WORD OF

GOD IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY.

THAT THE WHOLE THING IS

BASED ON THIS.

AND SO THE GROWTH OF IT, I

BEGAN TO REALIZE, I'M NOT

DOING IT.

I'M NOT THE HEALER.

I'M NOT THE MIRACLE WORKER.

I'M THE BELIEVER.

EVEN THOUGH, LIKE JESUS

SAID, IT IS THE FATHER THAT

DWELLS WITHIN ME.

HE DOES THE WORKS.

BUT THIS IS AVAILABLE TO

ANYBODY, GORDON, THAT WILL

BELIEVE GOD.

NOW, A MIRACLE IS A DIVINE

INTERVENTION ON THE NORMAL

COURSE OF NATURE.

IF YOU JUST LEAVE IT TO

NATURE, IT'S GOING TO WIND

UP LIKE THIS, AND IN MOST

CASES, IT'S NOT GOING TO BE

GOOD.

BUT A DIVINE INTERVENTION ON

THAT, TO GET IT BACK LIKE

IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE, BUT

THEN YOU HAVE TO STAY IN THE

WORD AND KEEP IT LIKE IT'S

SUPPOSED TO BE.

SO YOUR WALKING IN THE

WORD.

Gordon: YOU'RE LIVING

THE WORD.

YOU'RE LIVING IT AT ALL

TIME.

Gordon: AND YOU'RE

ALLOWING THE WORD TO BE IN

YOUR FLESH.

YEAH.

WELL, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,

LET'S LOOK AT SOMETHING

JESUS SAID, NOW THAT

SCRIPTURE HAS COME UP.

IN THE 14th CHAPTER OF

JOHN'S GOSPEL.

JESUS SAID --

Gordon: YOU'VE GOT TO

GET A CLOSEUP OF THIS

GOSPEL.

BIBLE.

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN IS

COMPLETELY HIGHLIGHTED.

I WAS TAPING ONE DAY WITH

DAVID BARTON, AND HE SAID,

WHERE DID YOU GET A WHITE

HIGHLIGHTER, AND THEN I

REALIZED WHAT HE WAS

SAYING.

BELIEVE US NOT THAT I AM

IN THE FATHER, AND THE

FATHER IN ME.

THOUGH WORDS I SPEAK UNTO

YOU, I SPEAK NOT OF MYSELF,

BUT THE FATHER THAT DWELLS

IN ME, HE DOES THE WORKS.

> THEN HE TURNED RIGHT

AROUND AND SAID, I SAY UNTO

YOU -- WHEN HE SAYS TWO

VERILYS, YOU BETTER LISTEN

TO HIM.

HE THAT BELIEVES ON ME, THE

WORKS THAT I DO, SHALL HE

DO, ALSO, AND GREATER WORKS

SHALL HE DO BECAUSE I GO TO

MY FATHER.

HOW DO WE EVER DO THAT?

THE SAME PROCESS.

NOW, HE SAID IN THE FIFTH

CHAPTER -- EXCUSE ME -- OF

JOHN -- HE MADE IT VERY

CLEAR, AND I'M SURPRISED AT

HOW FEW PEOPLE REALLY

BELIEVE THIS.

THE SON -- JESUS IS TALKING,

THESE ARE RED WORDS.

THE SON CAN DO NOTHING OF

HIMSELF.

WHAT?

THIS IS JESUS.

THIS IS THE MAN, JESUS.

A MAN BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY

GHOST.

AND HE SAID, THE SON CAN DO

NOTHING OF HIMSELF BUT WHAT

HE SEES THE FATHER DO.

THE 30th VERSE: "I CAN OF

MINE OWN SELF DO NOTHING.

AS I HEAR, I JUDGE.

I DON'T SAY ANYTHING BUT

WHAT I HEAR MY FATHER SAY.

I DON'T DO ANYTHING BUT WHAT

I SEE MY FATHER DO."

WELL, THAT'S THE SAME

PROCESS THAT HE WAS TALKING

ABOUT HERE IN THE 14th

CHAPTER.

HE ONLY SAID WHAT HE HEARD

HIS FATHER SAY.

AND HE ONLY DID WHAT HE SAW

HIS FATHER DO.

HE WHOM GOD SINCE SPOKE THE

WORDS OF GOD, THEREFORE GOD

GAVE HIM HIS SPIRIT WITHOUT

MEASURE.

NOW, THE AVERAGE MIND READS

THAT AND SAYS, HE WHOM GOD

SENT NEVER SINNED, AND

THEREFORE GOD GAVE HIM HIS

SPIRIT.

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT HE

SAID.

THAT'S NOT THE REASON HE

GAVE HIM THE SPIRIT WITHOUT

MEASURE.

IT IS BECAUSE HE ONLY SAID

WHAT HE HEARD HIS FATHER

SAY.

HE INQUIRED OF GOD ABOUT

EVERYTHING HE SAID AND

EVERYTHING HE DID.

SO NOW, GORDON, WHAT'S THE

FINAL -- WHAT IS THE BOTTOM

LINE?

HE THAT BELIEVES ON ME, THE

WORKS THAT I DO SHALL HE DO

ALSO.

WELL, WHAT'S THE FIRST THING

YOU THINK OF?

Gordon: MIRACLES.

RAISING THE DEAD, HEALING

THE SICK.

AND THAT IS CORRECT.

BUT, NOW, GORDON, IF JESUS

SAID, NOW, GORDON, I WANT

YOU TO HIT THAT CAN OF TRASH

GET THAT CAN OF TRASH OVER

THERE AND I WANT YOU TO TAKE

IT OUT HERE AND PUT IT IN

THE DUMPSTER, AND I WANT YOU

TO DO IT AT 11:30 IN THE

MORNING.

AND YOU SAY, OKAY, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT HE WANTS ME TO DO

THAT FOR, BUT I'M GOING TO

DO IT.

SO AT 11:30, YOU GRAB THAT

CAN CAN AND YOU GO TO THE

DUMPSTER, YOU JUST DID THE

WORKS OF JESUS BECAUSE HE

TOLD YOU TO DO THAT.

Gordon: HE TOLD ME TO

DO IT.

HE TOLD YOU TO DO THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF

MIRACLE IS GOING TO HAPPEN

BETWEEN HERE AND THERE.

HE CAN MAKE THAT THE MOST

EXCITING TRIP YOU EVER HAD

IN YOUR LIFE, FROM HERE TO

THE DUMPSTER, BECAUSE YOU'RE

IN OBEDIENCE TO HIM.

AMEN.

WITH THAT CONCEPT, MIRACLES

ARE READY ALL THE TIME.

THEY ARE IN GOD.

THEY ARE GOD.

AND I USED TO THINK THAT

MIRACLES WERE GOD'S NATURE,

NATURAL TO HIM, HIS WAY OF

DOING THINGS.

AND THE LORD CORRECTED ME

ONE DAY.

HE SAID, NO, NO.

HE SAID, MY WAY OF DOING

THINGS, FOR IT TO NEVER GET

FOULED UP IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

HE SAID, THAT'S MY WAY.

BUT HE SAID, NOW I AM

AVAILABLE AT ALL TIME TO

HELP YOU STRAIGHTEN IT OUT

AND GET IT BACK ON MY WAY.

Gordon: TO WHAT I

ORIGINALLY INTENDED.

TO WHAT HE ORIGINALLY

DESIGNED.

AND WHEN JESUS WAS RAISED

FROM THE DEAD, THE DEVIL WAS

DEFEATED, AND THE CURSE WAS

DEFEATED.

Gordon: SIN AND DEATH

ARE GONE.

AND IT IS READY FOR A

MIRACLE.

Gordon: WHEN YOU START

THE DAY, DO YOU PRAY THAT,

LORD, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO

DO TODAY?

YES.

Gordon: AND WHEN YOU

TALK TO PEOPLE, DO YOU PRAY,

LORD, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO

SAY?

YES.

THE THING THAT STRUCK ME THE

MOST, GORDON, IN STUDYING

THIS OVER THE YEARS, WAS AT

THE POOL OF BETHESDA.

MAN, THAT PLACE WAS PACKED

WITH SICK PEOPLE.

THOUSANDS OF THEM.

THE SCRIPTURE SAYS

MULTITUDES.

AND HE ONLY TALKED TO ONE

MAN.

AND HE SAID SOME KIND OF --

YOU WALK UP TO A MAN THAT IS

THERE BECAUSE HE IS SICK AND

SAY, WOULD YOU BE HEALED?

Gordon: DO YOU WANT TO

BE?

WHAT?

THAT DON'T SOUND RIGHT.

YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD HAVE

HAPPENED IF YOU AND ME HAD

GONE DOWN THERE?

WHOA, LOOK AT THE PEOPLE.

SET UP THE SOUND SYSTEM,

WE'RE GOING TO BOTTLE THAT

WATER OUT OF THAT POOL.

WE WOULD HAVE STILL ONLY

GOTTEN THAT ONE MAN HEALED.

I DON'T MAKE THE PLANS

HERE.

I JUST FOLLOW.

JESUS HEARD HIS FATHER SAY,

AND HE SAW HIS FATHER DO,

AND HE DID EXACTLY WHAT HE

HEARD AND WHAT HE SAW.

AND HE GOT A HUNDRED PERCENT

RESULTS.

I'LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER

EXAMPLE.

YOU REMEMBER IN MARK 11, HE

WENT INTO THE TEMPLE?

Gordon: YEAH.

AND THE SCRIPTURE SAID

THAT HE WENT IN THERE AND HE

STAYED THERE UNTIL EVENING

CAME.

WELL, THEY WERE ACTING JUST

AS UGLY IN THERE THAT DAY AS

THEY WERE THE NEXT DAY --

Gordon: WHEN HE DROVE

THEM OUT?

YEAH.

AND HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING

AND HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

WHY?

HE NEVER HEARD HIS FATHER

SAY ANYTHING.

HE DIDN'T SEE HIM DO

ANYTHING.

GORDON, THAT HIT ME ONE

DAY.

I MEAN, MAN, IT IMPACTED

ME.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES

HAVE I READ THE 11th

CHAPTER OF MARK -- I CUT MY

TEETH OUT OF IT.

HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS -- I

DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES.

BUT ON THIS PARTICULAR DAY,

THE SPIRIT OF GOD ARRESTED

ME.

HE SAID, KENNETH, THAT'S THE

FIRST STEP OF FAITH.

I SAID, WHAT?

HE SAID, KEEP YOUR MOUTH

SHUT UNTIL YOU HEAR FROM

HEAVEN.

THEN SPEAK AND THEN DO.

AND HE SAYS, YOU'LL GET THE

RESULTS THAT YOU ALWAYS

WANTED.

Gordon: WAIT ON THE

LORD.

YEAH.

SO THE FIRST DAY WAS THE BIG

DAY.

THAT'S WHERE HE OBSERVED.

THEN HE WENT BACK TO

BETHANY.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK HE DID

ALL NIGHT, THE NIGHT BEFORE

THE NEXT DAY?

YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID.

HE SOUGHT THE LORD.

HE SAW WHAT HE HAD SEEN AND

HE LISTENED.

AND, MAN, THE NEXT DAY HE

WAS PRIMED AND READY.

Gordon: HE WAS READY.

THAT NIGHT I THINK HE MADE

HIS COURTS.

YES, SIR.

Gordon: HE WAITED.

AND YOU KNOW, GORDON,

THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE,

TOO, THAT COMES TO MIND

THERE.

HE WENT IN THERE AND HE

CLEANED THAT TEMPLE OUT.

AND THAT'S WHAT MOST

MAJOR -- THAT'S WHAT I DID

FOR YEARS.

BUT HE PREACHED THE REST OF

THE WHOLE DAY.

THAT MY HOUSE WILL BE A

HOUSE OF PRAYER.

HE PREACHED UNTIL EVENING

TIME.

GLORY TO GOD.

THAT WAS THE MISSION, TO

PREACH THE WORD.

THE FIRST THING HE DID WAS

CLEAN THE PLACE OUT.

BUT THE JOB IS PREACHING THE

WORD.

AMEN.

Gordon: AMEN.

THAT'S WHERE THE MIRACLES

COME FROM.

THAT'S WHERE THE HEALINGS

COME FROM.

HEY, GORDON, THAT'S WHERE

THE MONEY COMES FROM.

Gordon: FROM

OBEDIENCE.

THE WHOLE BLESSING OF THE

LORD, IT MAKETH RICH, AND HE

ADDS NO SORRY WITH IT.

THAT'S ALL PART OF THE

BLESSING OF GOD THAT

OVERCOMES THE CURSE OF

SICKNESS, DISEASE,

POVERTY -- ALL OF THE FALLEN

MAN.

GLORY TO GOD.

I DONE PREACH TO MYSELF

AFTER THAT.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT TO

KNOW MORE, KENNETH HAS LOTS

OF BOOKS OUT THERE.

HE IS A WONDERFUL AUTHOR.

HE HAS A WONDERFUL

TELEVISION SHOW, A WONDERFUL

CONGREGATION.

AND THANKS FOR BEING WITH

US.

AND THANKS FOR GIVING US THE

KEYS TO MIRACLES.

GORDON, MY PLEASURE,

SIR.

SOMEONE JUST GOT A NEW

HEART.

A NEW HEART.

GLORY TO GOD.

HALLELUJAH.

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

Gordon: WOULD YOU PRAY

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE WATCHING

RIGHT NOW.

GLORY TO GOD.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THANK

YOU, FATHER.

I PRAY FOR EVERY PERSON IN

THE SOUND OF MY VOICE RIGHT

NOW, EVERY PERSON WATCHING

GORDON AND ME RIGHT NOW.

I PRAY THAT AS THEY'VE HEARD

YOUR WORD AND THEY ARE

LISTENING FOR YOU NOW, IN

THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST, STRETCH FORTH YOUR

HAND TO HEAL AND DO SIGNS

AND WONDERS BY THE NAME OF

YOUR HOLY CHILD.

CHILD, JESUS.

TOGETHER GORDON AND I AGREE

TOGETHER THAT IT IS DONE,

AND YOU ARE MOVING NOW TO

BRING GREAT HEALINGS, GREAT

MIRACLES, GREAT FINANCIAL

MIRACLES, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

SCLEROSIS OF THE LIVER WAS

JUST HEALED BY THE POWER OF

GOD.

HALLELUJAH.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

GORDON, IT IS SO IMPORTANT

FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THAT

WE'RE ONLY A BREATH AWAY

FROM THE GLORY ALL THE

TIME.

HIS GLORY IS HERE.

BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS HIM.

Gordon: ALWAYS HIM.

JESUS CHANGES

EVERYTHING.

HE IS HERE.

THIS PLACE IS FULL OF THE

GLORY RIGHT NOW.

IT IS WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT

NOW.

WHERE THERE NEEDS TO BE A

MIRACLE, JESUS IS THERE.

AMEN.

Gordon: AMEN.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE

TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH.

Gordon: I'VE GOT A WORD

FOR SOMEBODY WHO IS

WONDERING, CAN THIS BE FOR

ME?

AND THE ANSWER IS, YES, IT'S

FOR YOU.

I THINK THERE HAS BEEN AN

IMPARTATION OF MIRACLES AND

ABILITY TO LISTEN TO THE

VOICE OF THE LORD AND FEEL

HIS PRESENCE.

AND THAT IMPARTATION IS FOR

YOU.

GOD WANTS YOU TO DO THE

WORKS THAT JESUS DID.

AND HE WANTS YOU TO DO EVEN

GREATER.

ALL THAT IS REQUIRED THAT

YOU OBEY AND THAT YOU

BELIEVE.

AND THAT WHEN HE TELLS YOU

TO DO SOMETHING, YOU SAY,

YES, LORD, I WILL DO THAT.

I WILL ANNOUNCE THAT.

WHAT HE ASKS US TO DO IS NOT

HARD.

HE JUST ASKS US TO ANNOUNCE

IT, PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL.

THE GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF

GOD UNTO SALVATION.

WHATEVER HE SAYS FOR YOU

TO DO, WHEN HE SAID IT, IT

QUALIFIED YOU TO DO IT.

NOW, WHEN YOU SAID YES, HE

EMPOWERED YOU TO DO IT.

Gordon: THAT'S WHAT

MARY SAID.

AT THE WEDDING OF CANIN.

SHE TOLD PEOPLE, WHATEVER HE

TELLS YOU TO DO, DO IT.

JUST DO IT.

AND YOU'LL SEE THE MIRACLE.

YOU'LL SEE THE AUTHORITY.

YOU'LL SEE WHAT HE IS

GETTING READY TO DO.

HE'S NOT GOING TO TELL YOU

IN ADVANCE WHAT THE RESULT

IS GOING TO BE.

HE IS JUST GOING TO TELL YOU

WHAT TO DO.

THAT'S CALLED FAITH.

Gordon: FAITH.

WHICH IS SPELLED R-I-S-K.

IF YOU NEED A MIRACLE IN

YOUR LIFE, ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS CALL US:

1-888-777-1999.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM MARK 9: "JESUS

SAID TO HIM, IF YOU CAN

BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE TO HIM WHO

BELIEVES."

KENNETH, GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: WE'LL SEE YOU

AGAIN TOMORROW.

GOD BLESS.
