  • I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:12.100 --> 00:00:21.000
  • ANNOUNCER: Welcome to the Believer's Voice
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:23.220
  • of Victory. Join Kenneth Copeland today
  • 00:00:23.230 --> 00:00:25.150
  • as he teaches you how to release your faith with actions
  • 00:00:25.160 --> 00:00:28.200
  • to see results. Discover why real faith doesn't
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:32.130
  • sit back and wait, it always takes action.
  • 00:00:32.140 --> 00:00:35.260
  • KENNETH: We've been talking about the fundamentals
  • 00:00:37.220 --> 00:00:40.180
  • of faith. Now tonight, well, let just a
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:48.060
  • little rehearsal, the basic fundamentals of faith. Now here
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:55.120
  • are the very basics. Number one, believe it in your heart then
  • 00:00:55.130 --> 00:01:01.150
  • say it with your mouth. Number two, faith will not work in an
  • 00:01:01.160 --> 00:01:12.000
  • unforgiving heart. Number three, you cannot receive Abraham's
  • 00:01:12.010 --> 00:01:18.160
  • blessing with Thomas's faith. Then faith calls things that be
  • 00:01:18.170 --> 00:01:24.130
  • not as though they were and faith always requires
  • 00:01:24.140 --> 00:01:31.240
  • corresponding action, from the book of James. In fact, let's
  • 00:01:31.250 --> 00:01:41.240
  • turn over there right now. We hadn't touched this, but we're
  • 00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:45.080
  • going to see it tonight. We're going to go then tonight over
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:48.160
  • into the old covenant and see if it holds true there. Now James
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:57.290
  • is the oldest book in the New Testament and James, of course,
  • 00:01:58.000 --> 00:02:04.100
  • is Jesus half brother, same mother, different father. Now in
  • 00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:10.140
  • the book of James, the first chapter, look at the 22nd verse.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:16.260
  • Be he doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving your own
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:28.070
  • selves. Be a doer of the word. So you believe what? You believe
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:34.260
  • the word of God. That's just primary, faith cometh by
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:39.090
  • hearing, hearing by the word of God. So all faith is based on
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:43.070
  • the word. This book is the word of faith, Amen. It produces
  • 00:02:43.080 --> 00:02:49.210
  • faith. This book is full of God's faith. Words are
  • 00:02:49.220 --> 00:02:54.150
  • containers. Do you ever notice that? They are containers. They
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:03:01.200
  • carry fear. Oh, do they ever. They carry hate, words can kill
  • 00:03:01.210 --> 00:03:07.100
  • you. You can cut somebody so deep. If they don't know how,
  • 00:03:07.110 --> 00:03:12.040
  • now you and I know how, because we've learned to just cast all
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:18.080
  • the care of that over on the Lord and not even let it put a
  • 00:03:18.090 --> 00:03:21.040
  • frown on our face. Just Ha ha ha ha ha. But you don't know what
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:27.000
  • they said. Well that's their problem, not mine. Years ago, I
  • 00:03:27.010 --> 00:03:33.150
  • mean, way back there, the Lord said, "Kenneth, I can't expose
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:36.220
  • your ministry any further." I said, "Oh why, Lord." He said,
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:43.190
  • "You're too high temper." And he said, "Somebody just says least
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:50.010
  • little thing about you and you just fly off the handle." Well,
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:54.130
  • I mean, he had me pegged pretty good. And he said "From this day
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:58.150
  • forward, don't ever read anything about yourself in print
  • 00:03:58.160 --> 00:04:05.050
  • again, good or bad." He said, "Advise your staff to never ever
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:11.100
  • bring you a newspaper, never to bring you news of what anybody
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:15.180
  • said about you at any time, whether it's good or bad." And
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:21.100
  • he said ... And I had experienced this, where somebody
  • 00:04:21.110 --> 00:04:24.180
  • would walk up to me. I remember there's this one guy that walked
  • 00:04:24.190 --> 00:04:27.260
  • up and he walked up looking like he's going to have something
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:33.050
  • nice to say. And he said, "I have never heard anybody in my
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:36.290
  • life rape the scriptures like you did tonight." And I just
  • 00:04:37.000 --> 00:04:40.170
  • turned around and walked off. Now see, that one still sticks
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:46.160
  • out in my mind. It took a long time and I didn't know how back
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:53.030
  • then to really roll the care of and not to touch it in my
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:56.270
  • thought life. I learned that then from Brother Hagan and I
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:05:01.120
  • didn't know how to get rid of that and it just haunted me. It
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:05.270
  • just went over and over and then you know what happens? You start
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:09.190
  • thinking about what you wish you'd have said to that jerk.
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:12.130
  • And in my mind, I am just chewing him out. I'm just
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:17.060
  • cutting him to pieces and that guy's gone. He ain't even
  • 00:05:17.070 --> 00:05:21.040
  • thinking about me anymore. And then I saw it. I said, "Yes sir.
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:27.280
  • Yes sir." But I said, "What's wrong with the good stuff?" He
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:33.120
  • said, "Kenneth, you don't even try to get rid of that." And he
  • 00:05:33.130 --> 00:05:37.070
  • said, "If you're not careful, you start believing that
  • 00:05:37.080 --> 00:05:39.140
  • brother." He said, "Now, you cut that out too." He said, "You
  • 00:05:39.150 --> 00:05:43.150
  • just listened to me." And you have no idea how much wonderful
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:49.220
  • time and years and years and years and all the dirty, nasty
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:57.090
  • books that people have written and all the nasty newspaper
  • 00:05:57.100 --> 00:06:00.140
  • articles. And I've never seen any of them. I didn't even know
  • 00:06:00.150 --> 00:06:06.070
  • they happened. Glory to God. Like I told you yesterday or
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:09.090
  • whenever it was, that a newspaper, that tell you that
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:15.140
  • don't last but a day, but you read it and it'll last for
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:18.240
  • years. And besides that, it'll be at the bottom of a birdcage
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:22.250
  • tomorrow. Let the bird to take care of it, but anyway. Be a
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:31.120
  • doer of the word, not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:37.100
  • For if any be a hear of the word and not to doer, he's liken to a
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:39.260
  • man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholdeth
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:43.050
  • himself and goes his way and straightway forgets what manner
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:45.190
  • of man he was or what he saw. But whoso looketh into the
  • 00:06:45.200 --> 00:06:49.230
  • perfect law of Liberty. Do you see what he called the word? The
  • 00:06:49.240 --> 00:06:53.180
  • perfect law. Perfect. Say perfect law. CONGREGATION:
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:57.170
  • Perfect law. KENNETH: Of Liberty. CONGREGATION: Of
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:59.230
  • liberty. KENNETH: And you shall know the truth and the truth
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:04.020
  • will make you free. I like that word make. That's a more
  • 00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:09.120
  • powerful word than set you free. It generally means the same
  • 00:07:09.130 --> 00:07:14.140
  • thing, but if you think about make you free, you were made a
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:21.280
  • new creature in Christ Jesus. Amen. You were created, Glory to
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:29.020
  • God, in the holiness of God and in the goodness of God and made
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:35.230
  • the righteousness of God and knowing the truth about the
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:38.280
  • situation. What is the truth? I mentioned this this morning in
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:45.190
  • the healing school. When Jimmy Hester came to my mother's
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:49.230
  • prayer group. And for the benefit of those of you that
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:56.100
  • were not here, Jimmy Hester was Southern Baptist preacher and he
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:08:00.240
  • was a little older than me, a few years older than me. So he
  • 00:08:00.250 --> 00:08:06.100
  • graduated Poly High School before I even started the Poly
  • 00:08:06.110 --> 00:08:10.100
  • High School. We graduated from the same high school there in
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:12.280
  • Fort worth. Anyway, and a fine Southern Baptist preacher and
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:17.000
  • his mother told him, now is what Jimmy told me later, he said his
  • 00:08:17.010 --> 00:08:26.250
  • mother had told him, warned him all the time, said, "Now Jimmy,
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:30.210
  • now you take care of yourself son. Because you know, Hester
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:33.180
  • men don't live very long because of have bad hearts." Said your
  • 00:08:33.190 --> 00:08:39.130
  • grandfather died young. He died in his 50s. His dad died in his
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:43.090
  • 50s. And here he is, and now his heart is acting up. So someone
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:50.180
  • took him over to my mother's prayer group. Now my momma's
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:55.040
  • prayer group, she would start a prayer group in her home and
  • 00:08:55.050 --> 00:09:00.240
  • that thing would grow her Monday night prayer group. You just ask
  • 00:09:00.250 --> 00:09:04.170
  • a Pastor George. I mean he was there, he had a lot of them that
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:10.060
  • helped her in her prayer group. And that it would get so big
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:12.230
  • that the house wouldn't hold it. So she would turn it over to a
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:18.200
  • pastor and it would become a church. And she'd wait about a
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:23.220
  • year, maybe two years, and started another one. And there
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:26.200
  • were two or three churches that came out to her prayer groups
  • 00:09:26.210 --> 00:09:29.000
  • because her Monday night prayer group, take just a few days, it
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:32.100
  • would just get some big, you couldn't even park around my
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:35.040
  • dad's house on Monday. And I was walking up the front porch. I
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:39.230
  • had come in late and I was walking up the front porch,
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:43.270
  • because I knew it was Monday night and I couldn't even get my
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:46.230
  • car around in the driveway to park behind my dad's house. And
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:51.220
  • there were two young preachers walking out the front door and
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:55.250
  • we did just past one another. Of course it was rather late and
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:09:59.220
  • dark, and one of them said, "Oh, I'll tell you, that beats all I
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:02.070
  • ever saw in my life." And the other one said, "Yeah, I'll tell
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:05.210
  • you what. That's the first time in my life I ever felt sorry for
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:07.050
  • the devil." And the other one said, "Yeah, I'm telling you,
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:14.080
  • when that woman got through with him." He said, "I'd left too."
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:17.020
  • Anyway, somebody took Jimmy over there and for healing. And she
  • 00:10:17.030 --> 00:10:28.090
  • said, "What is this?" Well, he said, "My grandfather died of
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:35.200
  • heart trouble. My dad died of heart trouble and I've got a bad
  • 00:10:35.210 --> 00:10:39.010
  • heart now." She said, "Tell me the truth about that." He said,
  • 00:10:39.020 --> 00:10:44.210
  • "I told you the truth." "My granddad died young of a bad
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:49.050
  • heart. My dad died of heart trouble and I've got a bad
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:53.170
  • heart." She said, "I told you to tell me the truth about that."
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:58.240
  • Well, he got mad. He said, "Lady, I told you the truth
  • 00:10:58.250 --> 00:11:03.220
  • about it. My granddad died with a bad heart. My daddy died with
  • 00:11:03.230 --> 00:11:10.000
  • a bad heart and I've got a bad heart now." And she took both
  • 00:11:10.010 --> 00:11:13.280
  • her hands ... Now he told me this story later. And she boxed
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:17.060
  • his ears. She said, "Isaiah 53:4 and 5. That's the
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:31.260
  • truth about this." Now I walked into a small motorcycle store
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:42.010
  • and Jimmy was sitting in there at the county and he had phone.
  • 00:11:42.020 --> 00:11:45.030
  • I'm thinking, come in here, come in here. And so of course, by
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:51.250
  • this time I knew Jimmy well, and he was sitting there and the
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:59.050
  • telephone he got through. He just got this big
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:01.140
  • smile on his face and he said, "Kenneth," he said, "I just got
  • 00:12:01.150 --> 00:12:07.280
  • the report from my doctor, just took my physical." He said,
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:11.160
  • "I've got the heart of a 16 year old boy." And he said, "Today is
  • 00:12:11.170 --> 00:12:15.240
  • my 61st birthday." Then he told me that story. He said,
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:20.110
  • "Kenneth, I know your mother saw death on me." And he said, "She
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:24.160
  • flat had to get my attention." He said, "She boxed my ears and
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:30.030
  • just roared at me and cast that devil out on me and off me." And
  • 00:12:30.040 --> 00:12:37.080
  • he said, "I've been healed ever since." And then just not all
  • 00:12:37.090 --> 00:12:44.200
  • that long ago, Jerry and I both were at our dear Brother
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:51.040
  • Hester's home going service in his mid to late eighties, still
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:59.080
  • a perfect heart. Somebody ought to shout Amen. CONGREGATION:
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:03.140
  • Amen. KENNETH: Glory to God. Hallelujah. Thank you Lord
  • 00:13:03.150 --> 00:13:11.050
  • Jesus. KENNETH: Well, what we saw here, well he became a
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:19.280
  • hearer the word first, then he became a doer of the word, Jimmy
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:25.010
  • Hester did. And praise God, came right on through. God baptized
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:30.180
  • him and baptized Joann, both in the Holy Ghost and power and he
  • 00:13:30.190 --> 00:13:36.140
  • raised up a powerful, powerful, full gospel church, man.
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:41.030
  • Hallelujah. Man of faith and one of my heroes. Now notice what he
  • 00:13:41.040 --> 00:13:50.070
  • said. Who soever looketh into the perfect law of Liberty and
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:53.270
  • continues there in, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer
  • 00:13:53.280 --> 00:14:01.180
  • of the word. This man shall be blessed in his deed. This is the
  • 00:14:01.190 --> 00:14:10.090
  • blessed man, not just a hearer, but a doer. What is a doer? The
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:15.170
  • woman with the issue of blood, believed with all of her heart
  • 00:14:15.180 --> 00:14:21.160
  • and she kept saying it with a mouth. If I just but touch the
  • 00:14:21.170 --> 00:14:24.080
  • hem of his garment, I will be made whole. But that wasn't good
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:28.130
  • enough. That's faith. She believed it in her heart and
  • 00:14:28.140 --> 00:14:32.240
  • said it with her mouth. Where's the action? Where's the
  • 00:14:32.250 --> 00:14:37.010
  • corresponding action? I remember back when I was believing for
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:41.060
  • the very first airplane, very first airplane and ... I lived
  • 00:14:41.070 --> 00:14:52.100
  • just few minutes from a little airport, in fact I used to work
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:55.120
  • on that airport, kcvc. And I knew the people
  • 00:14:55.130 --> 00:15:04.150
  • out there and everything, a little small neighborhood
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:06.210
  • airport. It's quite a large airport now. In fact, Jerry's
  • 00:15:06.220 --> 00:15:09.210
  • airplane is based there now, really nice airport. Back then
  • 00:15:09.220 --> 00:15:14.020
  • it was just a little family on the airport and a few hangers.
  • 00:15:14.030 --> 00:15:21.290
  • And so I didn't have an airplane and so I bought my flight case
  • 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:29.120
  • for my navigational charts. Now you'll notice I'm very
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:33.130
  • particular about saying navigation charts. Okay. Because
  • 00:15:33.140 --> 00:15:39.230
  • one time I said, I bought this case for my a charts and a woman
  • 00:15:39.240 --> 00:15:43.240
  • wrote me and said, "What's so special about a case for your
  • 00:15:43.250 --> 00:15:46.200
  • shorts?" And every time I've told it since, I say my
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:54.210
  • navigational chart. You understand? Not my shorts. Oh,
  • 00:15:54.220 --> 00:16:04.140
  • come on. Praise God. Oh man, I've got ... The joys all over
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:09.070
  • this place up here, I'm telling you. But anyway, I bought the
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:17.150
  • case. I went ahead and put in my subscription for the chart
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:22.040
  • service and I'm getting my charts. I don't have an
  • 00:16:22.050 --> 00:16:25.090
  • airplane, but I'm getting my charts and I'm doing my
  • 00:16:25.100 --> 00:16:27.220
  • revisions as they come through. I don't have anything to fly,
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:30.010
  • but I'm keeping up with them. So when it comes, I'm ready. And
  • 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:33.220
  • you know, that little airplane just come and jumping in there.
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:37.160
  • And so I moved it up here and I knew that they didn't have any
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:41.170
  • hanger space much, but I'm believing now for a twin engine
  • 00:16:41.180 --> 00:16:45.220
  • airplane because the single engine was already too small
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:48.110
  • when I got it. But it got it started. And so just make sure
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:55.090
  • everybody on that airport knew, I said, "What about hangar
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:17:06.050
  • space?" And he laughed. He said, "Copeland, now you know better
  • 00:17:06.060 --> 00:17:10.290
  • than that." He said, "You've worked out here." He said,
  • 00:17:11.000 --> 00:17:14.090
  • "These people leave these hangers in their will, man."
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:18.060
  • Well, I'd already picked out one, not for a single engine,
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:20.230
  • but for a Cessna 310, twin engine airplane. I knew that
  • 00:17:20.240 --> 00:17:24.180
  • very hanger I wanted because it was a little bit bigger than the
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:28.030
  • others and I said, "Can I have any tie down I want?" "Yeah," he
  • 00:17:28.040 --> 00:17:35.040
  • said. "I don't care where you tie it down." I said, "Okay, I
  • 00:17:35.050 --> 00:17:38.130
  • want this tie down right here." "Why there." I said, "Well, I
  • 00:17:38.140 --> 00:17:44.010
  • want it right here." "Why?" I said, "Because when that hanger
  • 00:17:44.020 --> 00:17:46.200
  • comes open, I'm going to just push my airplane in there." He
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:49.030
  • said, "Copeland, I don't what's the matter with you. I don't
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:52.060
  • care where you put your airplane, what airplane?" I
  • 00:17:52.070 --> 00:17:57.280
  • said, "Well you know, it'll be here." And it wasn't, I mean
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:18:03.270
  • just ... I'm talking about weeks, we had it and I had him
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:10.120
  • park it right there. I said, "Now you call me when that
  • 00:18:10.130 --> 00:18:15.070
  • hanger comes open." He said, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah."
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:18.290
  • Well I don't need to tell you the rest of the story, do I?
  • 00:18:19.000 --> 00:18:23.070
  • Well, it came open and he said, "That beats all I have ever
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:28.030
  • seen." And of course, it just swallowed my little single
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:31.140
  • engine airplane, but I didn't tell him what I got on my mind.
  • 00:18:31.150 --> 00:18:34.120
  • So he just pushed it in that hanger. Now I flew my little red
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:42.180
  • single engine airplane to Shreveport and I'm having a
  • 00:18:42.190 --> 00:18:46.170
  • meeting over there. So Ollen and I we're driving
  • 00:18:46.180 --> 00:18:53.150
  • and we were coming just right close to were the airport and I
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:57.240
  • saw this little twin engine Cessna. A little Brown one just
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:19:02.050
  • flew over and I heard the word of the Lord, "That's your
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:04.070
  • airplane." I said, Ollen look, that's my airplane right there."
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:08.250
  • And I saw it go over and I knew where the airport was. I mean,
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:12.020
  • and so I just drove around there and followed it and I saw him
  • 00:19:12.030 --> 00:19:16.220
  • pull up to a hanger over there and I drove up to it and I said,
  • 00:19:16.230 --> 00:19:20.220
  • "Sir, is this 310 for sale?" He said, "Well, it's not my
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:26.030
  • airplane." He said, "But my boss," he said, "Knowing my
  • 00:19:26.040 --> 00:19:29.170
  • boss, anythings for sale." And so to make a long story short as
  • 00:19:29.180 --> 00:19:34.250
  • I can, now I already ... Now see, I came out of the airplane
  • 00:19:34.260 --> 00:19:41.080
  • business. I was in the airplane sales. That's what I was doing
  • 00:19:41.090 --> 00:19:45.240
  • when I met Gloria and so ... I was sales manager at a
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:52.010
  • Beechcraft dealership in Little Rock, Arkansas. Not when I met
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:58.030
  • her, but after she and I got married. Boy, that's a good
  • 00:19:58.040 --> 00:20:02.110
  • story, I wish I had time to tell that. I will tell you this, the
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:05.200
  • guy that was general manager of it was an ordained Southern
  • 00:20:05.210 --> 00:20:09.240
  • Baptist preacher. His dad-in-law owned the place and I wasn't
  • 00:20:09.250 --> 00:20:14.050
  • even born again, but I just thought I need to go back over
  • 00:20:14.060 --> 00:20:18.220
  • and see them. I'd been to see everybody on the airport and ...
  • 00:20:18.230 --> 00:20:22.030
  • Oh, already met and fell in love with Gloria and asked her to
  • 00:20:22.040 --> 00:20:29.020
  • marry me on the first date. And she said, okay, and just went in
  • 00:20:29.030 --> 00:20:31.270
  • the house. She got in the house, she said, "What have I done? I
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:36.050
  • don't even know this man. That's all right. I'll get out of it
  • 00:20:36.060 --> 00:20:38.220
  • later." It'd be 58 years in April. She ain't got out of it
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:45.060
  • yet. Anyway, so I went back, he said, "You know Kenneth," he
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:59.080
  • said, "Really." And at this time, I didn't know he was a
  • 00:20:59.090 --> 00:21:01.220
  • preacher. He said, "I really don't know why I'm doing this."
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:06.190
  • But he said, "You put on your resume that you have sales
  • 00:21:06.200 --> 00:21:10.030
  • experience." He said, "You're a low time pilot, but we need
  • 00:21:10.040 --> 00:21:13.040
  • somebody in the sales experience and so he hired me. And so
  • 00:21:13.050 --> 00:21:20.230
  • Gloria was going to school in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. So she
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:24.160
  • moved to Little Rock and moved in with her grandmother there in
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:27.230
  • Little Rock. And then later on she got an apartment with a
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:31.060
  • friend of hers. And we were just inseparable, just night and day.
  • 00:21:31.070 --> 00:21:38.130
  • And man, I found out Joe was a preacher. I said, "Joe, will you
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:53.090
  • marry Gloria and me? He said, "Kenneth, I would be thrilled
  • 00:21:53.100 --> 00:21:57.190
  • to." And my boss was my best man and I borrowed $100 from him and
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:05.140
  • went to Hot Springs over the weekend for the honeymoon. Yeah.
  • 00:22:05.150 --> 00:22:12.210
  • Amen. Just added that to the debt. But I got that one paid
  • 00:22:12.220 --> 00:22:19.120
  • back, Glory to God. And then six months later, both of us got
  • 00:22:19.130 --> 00:22:23.180
  • born again. Glory to God. Three months after that, both of us
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:26.290
  • baptized with the Holy Spirit speaking with other tongues and
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:30.290

  • JEREMY: Today on the broadcast, Brother
  • 00:24:49.060 --> 00:24:50.130
  • Copeland covered five fundamentals of faith.
  • 00:24:50.140 --> 00:24:52.220
  • One, believe it in your heart. Say it with your mouth.
  • 00:24:52.230 --> 00:24:56.040
  • Two, faith will not work in an unforgiving heart. Three, you
  • 00:24:56.050 --> 00:25:00.260
  • cannot receive Abraham's blessing with Thomas faith.
  • 00:25:00.270 --> 00:25:05.150
  • Four, faith calls those things that be not as though they were.
  • 00:25:05.160 --> 00:25:10.210
  • And five, faith always requires corresponding action.
  • 00:25:10.220 --> 00:25:15.070
  • Now we saw how each step built one upon
  • 00:25:15.080 --> 00:25:18.050
  • the other and this broadcast would be one of those
  • 00:25:18.060 --> 00:25:21.120
