  • - Serita Jakes: Coming up on,
  • 00:00:08.060 --> 00:00:09.030
  • "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.030 --> 00:00:10.170
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: That's why
  • 00:00:10.170 --> 00:00:11.060
  • when you do people wrong, you
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:12.110
  • ought to run to them and say,
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:14.040
  • "I'm sorry.
  • 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:18.000
  • I'm not scared of you, but I'm
  • 00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:19.070
  • scared of God.
  • 00:00:19.070 --> 00:00:20.180
  • I'm sorry."
  • 00:00:20.260 --> 00:00:23.260
  • A wise man will apologize.
  • 00:00:23.260 --> 00:00:26.140
  • A wise man will say, "I was
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.260
  • wrong.
  • 00:00:27.260 --> 00:00:29.000
  • I was foolish.
  • 00:00:29.000 --> 00:00:30.010
  • I was silly.
  • 00:00:30.010 --> 00:00:31.030
  • I was drunk.
  • 00:00:31.030 --> 00:00:32.070
  • I was beside myself.
  • 00:00:32.070 --> 00:00:33.200
  • I was childish.
  • 00:00:33.200 --> 00:00:34.280
  • I'm sorry.
  • 00:00:34.280 --> 00:00:37.170
  • I don't want to spend the rest
  • 00:00:37.170 --> 00:00:38.270
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:54.270 --> 00:00:57.000
  • - Bishop Jakes: They killed
  • 00:01:02.050 --> 00:01:02.220
  • him.
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:04.050
  • They destroyed his bones.
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:06.150
  • They got rid of his flesh--his
  • 00:01:06.150 --> 00:01:08.220
  • young tender flesh, his skin.
  • 00:01:10.130 --> 00:01:13.130
  • Nothing was ever found of him.
  • 00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:17.000
  • The ground opened up its mouth
  • 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:19.180
  • and received his blood.
  • 00:01:19.180 --> 00:01:22.060
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:01:23.200 --> 00:01:26.200
  • They killed him and God didn't
  • 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:28.090
  • stop it.
  • 00:01:28.090 --> 00:01:30.150
  • They hid his body and God didn't
  • 00:01:30.150 --> 00:01:32.090
  • stop it.
  • 00:01:32.090 --> 00:01:33.140
  • The ground opened up its mouth
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:34.250
  • to receive the blood of the
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:37.020
  • person who had God's favor and
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:40.190
  • And when God came down there, he
  • 00:01:46.200 --> 00:01:48.230
  • said--he asked Cain a question.
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:53.200
  • Be careful when God asks you a
  • 00:01:54.280 --> 00:01:57.280
  • question.
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.230
  • Don't be too quick to put your
  • 00:01:59.230 --> 00:02:00.260
  • hands on your hips, let your
  • 00:02:00.260 --> 00:02:02.120
  • backbone slip, and tell God
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:04.230
  • what's going on 'cause God
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:06.180
  • already knows what's going on.
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:09.000
  • He is omnipotent, he is
  • 00:02:09.000 --> 00:02:10.150
  • omnipresent, and he is
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:12.000
  • omniscient.
  • 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:13.090
  • He is all-knowing.
  • 00:02:13.090 --> 00:02:14.150
  • He knows the end from the
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:16.080
  • beginning.
  • 00:02:16.080 --> 00:02:17.030
  • So when God walks up on you and
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:18.160
  • says, "What's up?"
  • 00:02:18.160 --> 00:02:19.210
  • Where is your brother is
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:35.000
  • companion to what he asked his
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:36.230
  • And the curse continues, and the
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.210
  • questions are almost the same.
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:48.140
  • "Mm-mm.
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:59.120
  • Mm-mm, I plead the fifth.
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:04.290
  • I will not answer up under the
  • 00:03:04.290 --> 00:03:07.120
  • grounds that it may incriminate
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:08.240
  • me.
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:11.250
  • Let me see if that works."
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:16.060
  • Now, listening--can I take my
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:24.210
  • time?
  • 00:03:24.210 --> 00:03:25.080
  • Give me just a minute.
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:27.170
  • Listening is about frequency.
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:34.050
  • There are sounds in this room
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:35.180
  • right now that you cannot hear,
  • 00:03:35.180 --> 00:03:37.040
  • but they exist.
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:40.090
  • The reason you can't hear them
  • 00:03:40.090 --> 00:03:42.000
  • is that your ear canal, your
  • 00:03:42.000 --> 00:03:44.220
  • eardrum doesn't operate on a
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:46.280
  • frequency that lends itself to
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:49.050
  • audibility on that level.
  • 00:03:51.160 --> 00:03:54.160
  • I could blow a dog whistle in
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:56.040
  • this room and you would never
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:03:57.070
  • hear the sound, but every dog
  • 00:03:57.070 --> 00:03:59.090
  • would start barking.
  • 00:03:59.090 --> 00:04:01.190
  • Because I'm blowing on a
  • 00:04:01.190 --> 00:04:02.290
  • frequency that you cannot hear
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:06.090
  • doesn't mean that it doesn't
  • 00:04:06.090 --> 00:04:07.160
  • exist.
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:10.080
  • To all of my atheist friends,
  • 00:04:10.080 --> 00:04:13.050
  • the fact that you cannot hear
  • 00:04:13.050 --> 00:04:15.010
  • the gospel does not make the
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:17.070
  • gospel illegitimate.
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:19.190
  • It just means you lack the
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:21.040
  • Somebody shout, "Listen."
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:32.260
  • God says to Cain, "Listen."
  • 00:04:33.130 --> 00:04:36.130
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:37.180
  • "Listen, listen.
  • 00:04:37.180 --> 00:04:39.220
  • Don't you hear that?
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:44.120
  • I hear the sound of thy
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:48.030
  • brother's blood crying up to me
  • 00:04:51.280 --> 00:04:54.280
  • out of the ground.
  • 00:04:55.260 --> 00:04:58.260
  • Even the ground can't stop me
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:05:00.240
  • from hearing it.
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:03.130
  • I hear the sound of thy
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:05.290
  • brother's blood.
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:07.050
  • It is nice to know that God
  • 00:05:14.010 --> 00:05:16.070
  • hears the sound of injustice
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:19.130
  • 'cause sometimes our courtrooms
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:21.150
  • do not hear the sound of
  • 00:05:21.150 --> 00:05:24.130
  • injustice.
  • 00:05:24.130 --> 00:05:25.180
  • But God said, "I've got a ear
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:28.080
  • that can hear the sound of
  • 00:05:28.170 --> 00:05:31.170
  • injustice.
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:32.210
  • Plead the fifth all you want, I
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:35.050
  • hear the sound of injustice."
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:43.250
  • Whether it's on a sidewalk or
  • 00:05:43.250 --> 00:05:46.200
  • whether it's crying up out of
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:47.260
  • the ground, God says, "I hear
  • 00:05:48.220 --> 00:05:51.220
  • the sound of injustice.
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:55.150
  • I hear the sound of thy
  • 00:05:55.150 --> 00:05:57.190
  • brother's blood crying up out of
  • 00:05:57.190 --> 00:06:00.090
  • the ground."
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:00.260
  • Somebody must be praying for me
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:02.140
  • 'cause the more I preach, the
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:03.150
  • more strength I feel.
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.050
  • "I hear, I hear, I hear
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:08.040
  • something.
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:08.270
  • I hear something.
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:10.050
  • I hear something, and I'm not
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.240
  • going to stop till I fix it.
  • 00:06:11.240 --> 00:06:13.210
  • I hear something.
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:15.090
  • Nothing that's done in darkness
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:16.240
  • will I not bring it to light.
  • 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:18.160
  • I hear the sound of injustice.
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:21.060
  • I hear the sound of thy
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:22.280
  • brother's blood.
  • 00:06:22.280 --> 00:06:24.000
  • I hear the crying of weeping
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:26.040
  • mothers in the street.
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:27.150
  • I hear the sound of drive-by
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:30.040
  • killings.
  • 00:06:30.040 --> 00:06:30.260
  • I hear the sound of police
  • 00:06:30.260 --> 00:06:33.010
  • brutality.
  • 00:06:33.010 --> 00:06:34.060
  • I hear the sound of backroom
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:36.200
  • deals in courtrooms.
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:38.090
  • I hear the sound of betrayal.
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:40.270
  • I hear, I hear the sound of thy
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:46.210
  • Touch three people and say,
  • 00:06:58.140 --> 00:06:59.030
  • "God can hear it.
  • 00:06:59.030 --> 00:07:00.040
  • God can hear it.
  • 00:07:00.160 --> 00:07:03.160
  • It won't get away clean.
  • 00:07:03.160 --> 00:07:04.190
  • God can hear it.
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:06.100
  • It won't get away clean.
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:07.050
  • God can hear it.
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:08.250
  • You can cover it up, but God can
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:10.090
  • hear it.
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:11.110
  • You can lie about it, but God
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.230
  • can hear it.
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:14.010
  • You can hire a fancy attorney,
  • 00:07:14.010 --> 00:07:15.210
  • but God can hear it."
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:17.060
  • "I hear the sound of Trayvon
  • 00:07:27.100 --> 00:07:28.160
  • Martin's blood crying up on out
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:30.170
  • of the ground.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:31.170
  • I hear the sound of it.
  • 00:07:31.170 --> 00:07:33.070
  • I hear the sound of injustice.
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:35.090
  • And because thou has done this
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:56.080
  • thing, thou art cursed with a
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:59.120
  • Abel is dead, and you are
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:11.160
  • cursed."
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:15.090
  • You won, but you're going to pay
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:24.110
  • for it.
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:26.160
  • To every person who's ever been
  • 00:08:26.160 --> 00:08:28.140
  • victimized in any kind of way,
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:32.000
  • do not ever think that the
  • 00:08:32.000 --> 00:08:33.200
  • perpetrator will get away clean.
  • 00:08:33.200 --> 00:08:36.050
  • Because God says the rapist may
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:39.020
  • have got away with the rape, but
  • 00:08:39.020 --> 00:08:41.050
  • God said, "I hear.
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:44.150
  • I hear."
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:45.210
  • The abuser may have gotten
  • 00:08:45.210 --> 00:08:46.270
  • away with the abuse, but God
  • 00:08:46.270 --> 00:08:49.010
  • said, "I hear, I hear it.
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:51.150
  • They'll never get away clean."
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:57.000
  • They took you in the backroom of
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:58.070
  • the office and molested you, but
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:09:00.100
  • God said, "I hear the sound of
  • 00:09:00.100 --> 00:09:02.210
  • injustice."
  • 00:09:02.210 --> 00:09:05.160
  • You lost your job 'cause you
  • 00:09:05.160 --> 00:09:06.250
  • wouldn't play with the boss.
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:08.200
  • God said, "I hear the sound."
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:12.220
  • Where are my sisters at?
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:13.270
  • Make some noise.
  • 00:09:13.270 --> 00:09:15.240
  • God said, "I hear.
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:18.190
  • I hear it.
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:21.010
  • They'll never get away clean.
  • 00:09:35.070 --> 00:09:38.010
  • They're cursed with a curse.
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:40.220
  • They'll never be totally free.
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:42.270
  • They're cursed with a curse.
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:44.280
  • There's no need in you being
  • 00:09:44.280 --> 00:09:45.290
  • bitter and angry and upset and
  • 00:09:45.290 --> 00:09:48.180
  • trying to get even on your own.
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:50.130
  • God said, "No, vengeance is

  • "I will repay.

  • I'll fix it for you.
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:58.270
  • I hear the sound of injustice."
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:04.250
  • That's why when you do people
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:05.270
  • wrong, you ought to run to them
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:08.060
  • and say, "I'm sorry.
  • 00:10:08.220 --> 00:10:11.220
  • I'm not scared of you, but I'm
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:13.260
  • scared of God.
  • 00:10:13.260 --> 00:10:15.040
  • I'm sorry.
  • 00:10:17.240 --> 00:10:20.240

  • to be judged.
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:32.190
  • All you stubborn people that
  • 00:10:32.190 --> 00:10:33.210
  • will never apologize, you're a
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:35.250
  • fool.
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:37.230
  • A wise man will apologize.
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:40.110
  • A wise man will say, "I was

  • I was foolish.
  • 00:10:42.260 --> 00:10:43.280
  • I was silly.
  • 00:10:43.280 --> 00:10:45.030
  • I was drunk.
  • 00:10:45.030 --> 00:10:46.070
  • I was beside myself.
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:47.180
  • I was childish.

  • perspective and from Cain's
  • 00:11:17.100 --> 00:11:19.120
  • perspective and from Eve's

  • perspective.
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:26.190
  • Oh my God, from Eve's
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:30.280
  • perspective.

  • Eve has lost her son.
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:42.040
  • He has killed her son.
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:48.000
  • He has killed her hope of
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:52.000
  • resolving herself from guilt.
  • 00:11:54.110 --> 00:11:57.110
  • Because not only did he kill her
  • 00:11:57.110 --> 00:11:59.060
  • son, he killed what she thought
  • 00:11:59.100 --> 00:12:02.120
  • Can you imagine how Eve felt
  • 00:12:09.090 --> 00:12:11.100
  • when they came and told her that
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:13.140
  • Abel was dead?
  • 00:12:14.150 --> 00:12:17.150
  • It's not just that she lost her

  • son.
  • 00:12:19.080 --> 00:12:22.080
  • She lost her redemption.
  • 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:25.050
  • She was trying to fix it.
  • 00:12:25.170 --> 00:12:28.170
  • Her son was dead, and the other
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:32.260
  • one might as well be dead 'cause
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:34.170
  • he's cursed.
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:37.100
  • She didn't just lose one, she
  • 00:12:37.100 --> 00:12:38.180
  • lost two.
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:43.170
  • And worst of all, he killed what
  • 00:12:44.140 --> 00:12:47.140
  • she had in mind.

  • I'm always listening to his

  • been to the cemetery with an

  • idea, who hasn't stood over the

  • graveyard of what you hoped for,
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:28.090
  • who hasn't committed to the

  • ground what you imagine would

  • 00:14:40.240 --> 00:14:42.200
  • Kill my dream.

  • Kill my plan.
  • 00:14:45.140 --> 00:14:47.180
  • Kill my hope.
  • 00:14:47.180 --> 00:14:50.010
  • It's bad enough to lose a child,
  • 00:15:04.090 --> 00:15:07.090
  • to lose one to death and another

  • 00:15:08.250 --> 00:15:10.290
  • That's bad enough, but to kill

  • thought.
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:36.250
  • It is only when we get over in
  • 00:15:45.010 --> 00:15:46.040
  • the Book of Hebrews that we
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:48.160
  • learn that Satan has not
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:50.250
  • triumphed in this story.
  • 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:53.250
  • It is when we get to the Book of
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:56.010
  • Hebrews that we begin to realize
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:16:00.250
  • that Abel had to die, that Abel
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:07.100
  • had to die because he is a type
  • 00:16:07.100 --> 00:16:10.070
  • of Christ; that Abel's death
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:14.290
  • catapults us from the shadow
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:17.280
  • into the reality.
  • 00:16:17.280 --> 00:16:19.110
  • It starts with Abel offering up
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:21.140
  • lambs and it ends with Abel
  • 00:16:21.140 --> 00:16:23.240
  • being offered up himself, and
  • 00:16:23.240 --> 00:16:25.190
  • In one short paragraph, God
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:41.010
  • reveals to us everything that
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:43.020
  • would happen over the next
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:44.070
  • several thousand years; that the
  • 00:16:44.070 --> 00:16:46.280
  • lamb, that the blood of bullocks
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:48.260
  • and goats would only be a shadow
  • 00:16:48.260 --> 00:16:51.040
  • of what God was going to do with
  • 00:16:51.040 --> 00:16:53.120
  • the man, that the blood that was
  • 00:16:53.120 --> 00:16:55.100
  • painted on the doorpost of the
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:57.010
  • believer was a shadow of the
  • 00:16:57.010 --> 00:16:59.060
  • redemptive power of the blood of
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:00.210
  • Jesus.
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:01.140
  • It is here that God reveals that
  • 00:17:01.140 --> 00:17:03.230
  • the lamb is only a substitute
  • 00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:06.080
  • for the man.
  • 00:17:06.080 --> 00:17:07.250
  • It is here that God reveals that
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:10.210
  • the lamb is just standing in the
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:12.250
  • stead of a man, that the lamb is
  • 00:17:13.010 --> 00:17:16.010
  • a man and that the man is a
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:18.160
  • I'm going to say that again
  • 00:17:23.060 --> 00:17:24.010
  • 'cause I don't think they heard
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:24.290
  • it.
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:26.040
  • That the lamb is a man, and that
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:28.210
  • the man is a lamb.
  • 00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:30.290
  • It started in the Book of
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:32.030
  • Genesis.
  • 00:17:32.030 --> 00:17:33.010
  • This isn't an accident.
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:34.160
  • This isn't a mistake.
  • 00:17:34.160 --> 00:17:36.010
  • The lamb is a man and the man is
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:41.210
  • Oh, if I could sing, I would
  • 00:17:47.200 --> 00:17:48.270
  • sing "Worthy is the Lamb" or
  • 00:17:48.270 --> 00:17:51.210
  • "Now Behold the Lamb."
  • 00:17:51.210 --> 00:17:54.030
  • The precious Lamb of God, now
  • 00:17:54.030 --> 00:17:56.210
  • behold it, now behold it, now
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:17:59.250
  • behold it.
  • 00:17:59.250 --> 00:18:00.160
  • Listen.
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:02.020
  • Listen.
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:04.170
  • The death of what you had in
  • 00:18:11.240 --> 00:18:13.150
  • mind is not the death of your
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:16.080
  • destiny.
  • 00:18:16.080 --> 00:18:18.230
  • It is the death of your
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:20.030
  • strategy, but it is not the
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:22.110
  • death of your destiny.
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:24.250
  • Your strategy is not God's
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:26.220
  • strategy.
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.050
  • God never lost control of the
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:30.040
  • situation.
  • 00:18:30.040 --> 00:18:31.250
  • He knew what he was doing before
  • 00:18:31.250 --> 00:18:33.070
  • the foundations of the world.
  • 00:18:34.050 --> 00:18:37.050
  • He said the seed of the woman.
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:40.070
  • He didn't say the seed of Eve.
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:44.090
  • Eve was never meant to be the
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:45.280
  • woman.
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:47.130
  • She's a shadow of the woman.
  • 00:18:48.170 --> 00:18:51.170
  • Oh, but later in the Word of
  • 00:18:52.060 --> 00:18:55.060
  • God, God found a virgin and
  • 00:18:56.160 --> 00:18:59.160
  • said, "Hail Mary, you're the
  • 00:18:59.230 --> 00:19:02.250
  • woman.
  • 00:19:02.250 --> 00:19:04.270
  • You shall bring forth a son, and

  • room that got faith?
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:27.140
  • Touch somebody and tell them,

  • supposed to happen."
  • 00:19:29.150 --> 00:19:32.150
  • I lost whatever I was supposed

  • to lose.

  • I lost whatever I was supposed

  • to lose.
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:40.080
  • I gave up whatever I was

  • supposed to give up.

  • supposed to happen.
  • 00:19:46.070 --> 00:19:47.200
  • I will not stand around and cry

  • had in mind.

  • had in mind for my life.

  • gets good.
  • 00:26:06.290 --> 00:26:09.050
  • It says and Seth begot Enos, and
  • 00:26:12.160 --> 00:26:15.160
  • then men began to call on the
  • 00:26:15.160 --> 00:26:17.290

  • second one.
  • 00:26:31.100 --> 00:26:34.100
  • But Seth started a priestly
  • 00:26:35.030 --> 00:26:38.030
