  • - female announcer: Coming up
  • 00:00:08.080 --> 00:00:09.030
  • on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.030 --> 00:00:10.220
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: "Gimme my
  • 00:00:10.220 --> 00:00:11.110
  • portion, gimme my portion.
  • 00:00:11.110 --> 00:00:14.000
  • I'm a joint heir.
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:15.190
  • I don't know whether he wants
  • 00:00:15.190 --> 00:00:16.230
  • his or not, but gimme my
  • 00:00:16.230 --> 00:00:18.240
  • portion.
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:19.190
  • I don't know whether she want
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:20.250
  • hers or not, but gimme my
  • 00:00:20.250 --> 00:00:22.200
  • portion.
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:23.180
  • I don't know whether you want
  • 00:00:23.180 --> 00:00:24.240
  • yours or not."
  • 00:00:24.240 --> 00:00:27.190
  • Somebody, holler, "Gimme my
  • 00:00:27.190 --> 00:00:28.260
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:45.170
  • - Bishop Jakes: And he is
  • 00:00:51.080 --> 00:00:52.190
  • bringing them together so that,
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:54.290
  • when he gets to number 3, he now
  • 00:00:55.010 --> 00:00:58.010
  • brings 'em down to chapter 3, to
  • 00:00:58.010 --> 00:01:00.110
  • the same playing floor when he
  • 00:01:00.110 --> 00:01:02.060
  • says, "All have sinned."
  • 00:01:03.070 --> 00:01:06.070
  • See how he's bringin' 'em
  • 00:01:06.070 --> 00:01:07.000
  • together?
  • 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:08.100
  • He's not bringin' 'em together
  • 00:01:08.100 --> 00:01:09.170
  • through theology and doctrine.
  • 00:01:09.170 --> 00:01:11.200
  • He's bringin' them together
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:13.070
  • through the commonality of their
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:16.010
  • own debauchery.
  • 00:01:16.010 --> 00:01:18.040
  • "The one thing you both have in
  • 00:01:18.040 --> 00:01:19.160
  • common is that you have all
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:21.050
  • sinned and come short of the
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:24.060
  • glory of God."
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:25.180
  • He's bringing 'em down to his
  • 00:01:25.180 --> 00:01:27.120
  • lowest common denominator.
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:29.120
  • I know it's old school, but when
  • 00:01:29.120 --> 00:01:30.230
  • I came up, they taught you how
  • 00:01:30.230 --> 00:01:32.270
  • to divide and multiply fractions
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:35.060
  • by reducing it down to its
  • 00:01:35.060 --> 00:01:37.100
  • lowest common denominator.
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:39.170
  • So by chapter 3, we have reduced
  • 00:01:39.170 --> 00:01:42.040
  • both the Jew and the Gentile.
  • 00:01:42.040 --> 00:01:44.170
  • In chapter 3, they are reduced
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:46.220
  • to their lowest common
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:48.110
  • denominator when he says, "All
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:50.040
  • have sinned and come short of
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:53.040
  • the glory of God."
  • 00:01:53.180 --> 00:01:56.180
  • And then in chapter 4, he
  • 00:01:56.180 --> 00:01:57.260
  • reminds the Jews, "Father
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:01:59.250
  • Abraham received the covenant
  • 00:01:59.250 --> 00:02:02.160
  • before he was circumcised, so
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:05.200
  • how dare you not eat with these
  • 00:02:05.200 --> 00:02:07.010
  • people because they're not
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:08.250
  • circumcised?
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:10.270
  • Your father Abraham had the
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:12.280
  • covenant before he had the sign
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:15.030
  • of the covenant."
  • 00:02:15.040 --> 00:02:18.040
  • He's tearing down the walls of
  • 00:02:18.040 --> 00:02:19.220
  • partition between them because
  • 00:02:19.220 --> 00:02:21.220
  • real good leadership brings
  • 00:02:21.220 --> 00:02:24.030
  • I said, "Real good leadership
  • 00:02:35.030 --> 00:02:38.030
  • brings people together," shows
  • 00:02:38.030 --> 00:02:40.170
  • 'em what they have in common,
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:42.160
  • not how different they are, but
  • 00:02:42.160 --> 00:02:44.210
  • how alike they are.
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:46.040
  • Real good leadership can take
  • 00:02:46.040 --> 00:02:48.210
  • people who hate each other and
  • 00:02:48.210 --> 00:02:50.170
  • make them join together, and
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:52.190
  • stand together, and fight
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:54.240
  • together, and live together.
  • 00:02:54.240 --> 00:02:57.050
  • All have sinned and come short
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:03:00.030
  • of the glory of God.
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:01.240
  • Stop actin' funny toward her.
  • 00:03:01.240 --> 00:03:04.040
  • You stop acting funny toward
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:05.200
  • him.
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:06.180
  • We're in the same boat.
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:10.070
  • We might've come in on different
  • 00:03:10.070 --> 00:03:11.150
  • ships, but we landed in the same
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:15.240
  • In chapter 5, he says,
  • 00:03:24.070 --> 00:03:26.070
  • "Therefore being justified by
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:27.270
  • faith," therefore being
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:31.010
  • justified by faith, "we have
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:33.100
  • peace with God."
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:35.190
  • Therefore being justified, since
  • 00:03:35.190 --> 00:03:37.150
  • we have no righteousness now,
  • 00:03:37.150 --> 00:03:40.060
  • the first four chapters have
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:41.120
  • stripped me of all
  • 00:03:41.120 --> 00:03:43.020
  • righteousness.
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:45.050
  • Since I have no claim to God,
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:47.090
  • based on my religious pedigree,
  • 00:03:47.090 --> 00:03:49.190
  • you stripped me of all of that.
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:51.080
  • Since I have no claim to God,
  • 00:03:51.080 --> 00:03:53.090
  • based on my sexual integrity,
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:56.120
  • you've stripped of all of that
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:58.080
  • in the first four chapters and
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:04:00.050
  • brought me down to my knees.
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:02.150
  • Now he says, "Therefore being
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:04.230
  • justified by faith, we have
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:08.270
  • Not peace "in God," not peace
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:19.250
  • "of God."
  • 00:04:19.250 --> 00:04:21.230
  • We have peace "with God."
  • 00:04:22.290 --> 00:04:25.290
  • Do you know how important it is
  • 00:04:25.290 --> 00:04:28.230
  • to have peace with God?
  • 00:04:30.040 --> 00:04:33.040
  • You talk about havin' peace with
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.090
  • China.
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:37.150
  • You talkin' about havin' peace
  • 00:04:37.150 --> 00:04:38.180
  • with Russia.
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:40.050
  • You know who I really wanna have
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:41.120
  • peace with?
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:43.180
  • I wanna have peace with God.
  • 00:04:44.010 --> 00:04:47.010
  • I don't wanna get on the bad
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:48.230
  • side of God.
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:52.040
  • Romans chapter 5 says, in order
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:53.220
  • to have peace with God, I have
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:54.280
  • to have faith.
  • 00:04:54.280 --> 00:04:56.190
  • "Therefore, being justified by
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:57.200
  • faith, we have peace."
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:05:00.070
  • We've got Romans chapter 6,
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:02.080
  • says, "Shall we continue in sin,
  • 00:05:02.080 --> 00:05:04.180
  • that grace may abound?
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:06.230
  • God forbid.
  • 00:05:06.230 --> 00:05:08.100
  • How can we, that are dead to
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:10.210
  • sin, live any longer--"
  • 00:05:12.050 --> 00:05:15.050
  • Yes, I know my Bible.
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:16.280
  • "How can we, that are dead to
  • 00:05:16.280 --> 00:05:19.270
  • sin--"
  • 00:05:19.270 --> 00:05:20.240
  • But I am dead to it.
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:32.070
  • "How can we that are dead to
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:33.080
  • sin, live?"
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:35.190
  • Didn't say we couldn't do it,
  • 00:05:35.190 --> 00:05:37.190
  • but how can you live in it?
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:41.120
  • Sheep can fall in the mud, but
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:43.060
  • "Shall we continue in sin, that
  • 00:05:52.080 --> 00:05:53.240
  • grace may abound?
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:55.000
  • God forbid.
  • 00:05:55.000 --> 00:05:55.200
  • How can we, that are dead to
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:56.210
  • sin, live any longer therein?"
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:06:01.050
  • And then, in 6, he says,
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:02.060
  • "Therefore as many of us as have
  • 00:06:02.060 --> 00:06:04.010
  • been baptized into Jesus Christ
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:06.200
  • have been baptized into his
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:08.120
  • death, that if we are planted
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.070
  • together in the likeness of his
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:11.160
  • death, we shall be also in the
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:13.230
  • likeness of his resurrection."
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:16.060
  • In other words, if you go down
  • 00:06:16.060 --> 00:06:17.260
  • with Jesus, you come up with
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.000
  • Jesus.
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:21.180
  • Hey-hey, hey.
  • 00:06:21.180 --> 00:06:23.050
  • If you go down with him, you
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:28.190
  • come up with him.
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:30.140
  • He won't get ya in nothing he
  • 00:06:30.140 --> 00:06:32.010
  • won't get ya out of.
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:34.230
  • If he takes it in the grave on
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:36.200
  • the third day mornin', he gon'
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:38.060
  • roll you up out of the grave.
  • 00:06:38.060 --> 00:06:40.230
  • Somebody ought to shout right
  • 00:06:40.230 --> 00:06:41.290
  • there.
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:43.180
  • If God gets you in trouble, he's
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:45.200
  • God enough to get ya out of
  • 00:06:45.200 --> 00:06:47.020
  • trouble.
  • 00:06:47.020 --> 00:06:48.210
  • If God puts you in a ditch,
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:50.060
  • he'll pull you right back up out
  • 00:06:50.060 --> 00:06:52.060
  • In chapter 7, he allows us to
  • 00:06:58.260 --> 00:07:01.120
  • look inside of himself and said,
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:04.030
  • "When I would do good, evil is
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:08.200
  • present with me."
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:10.120
  • "That which I would do, I do
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:11.110
  • not.
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.010
  • That which I would not do, I do.
  • 00:07:12.010 --> 00:07:13.260
  • O wretched man that I am.
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:18.090
  • Who--"
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:19.140
  • Somebody, shout, "who."
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:21.100
  • "Who shall deliver me out of the
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:23.110
  • body of this death?"
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.070
  • See how he's weavin' it
  • 00:07:24.070 --> 00:07:25.070
  • together?
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:26.040
  • See, he brought 'em all into one
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:27.230
  • place, and now he's lookin' for
  • 00:07:27.230 --> 00:07:30.000
  • "somebody that could get me out
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:32.030
  • of this mess, that my will is
  • 00:07:32.030 --> 00:07:35.030
  • not enough, that my mind is not
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:37.230
  • enough."
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:38.140
  • This is for all the Gnostics who
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:40.190
  • were teaching the worship of
  • 00:07:40.190 --> 00:07:42.000
  • knowing.
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:43.120
  • He said, "You can't trust your
  • 00:07:43.120 --> 00:07:44.280
  • will, for that which you will
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.140
  • do, you do not, and that which
  • 00:07:46.140 --> 00:07:47.250
  • you would not do, you will."
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:49.230
  • He said, "You know you're crazy,
  • 00:07:49.230 --> 00:07:51.140
  • O wretched man that I am.
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:53.230
  • Who shall deliver me out of the
  • 00:07:53.230 --> 00:07:54.230
  • body?"
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:55.210
  • Somebody, shout, "Who?"
  • 00:07:55.210 --> 00:07:57.280
  • How dare you trust your own
