Heaven Is My Home – Part 2 | Enjoying Everyday Life

Heaven Is My Home – Part 2 | Enjoying Everyday Life


ANNOUNCER: THIS PROGRAM
HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BY THE FRIENDS AND PARTNERS
OF JOYCE MEYER MINISTRIES. JOYCE: THIS IS NOT MY HOME,
THIS IS PRACTICE. I’M JUST LEARNIN’ HOW TO LOVE
PEOPLE HERE. I’M JUST PRACTICIN’,
LEARNING HOW TO FORGIVE, AND LEARNING HOW TO NOT GET
ANGRY AND NOT BE SELFISH. [MUSIC] JOYCE: HEBREWS 13:14,
IT SAYS, “FOR HERE WE HAVE NO LASTING CITY, BUT WE SEEK
THE CITY THAT IS TO COME.” HEBREWS 11:16, “BUT AS IT IS,
THEY DESIRE A BETTER COUNTRY, THAT IS, A HEAVENLY ONE. THEREFORE GOD IS NOT ASHAMED
TO BE CALLED THEIR GOD, FOR HE HAS PREPARED
FOR THEM A CITY.” LORD HAVE MERCY. JESUS SAID, “I GO TO PREPARE A
PLACE FOR YOU THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YOU MAY BE ALSO.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: YOU KNOW WHAT’S
HAPPENING RIGHT NOW? HE’S PREPARING THE PLACE
AND HE’S PREPARING US FOR THE PLACE THAT HE’S GOT PREPARED. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: COME ON. DON’T BE AFRAID OF GETTING
OLDER, YOU’RE JUST ONE DAY CLOSER TO HEAVEN. I’VE BEEN SAYIN’ THAT EVERY
NIGHT WHEN I GO TO BED. “WELL LORD,
I’M ONE DAY CLOSER TO HEAVEN. ONE DAY CLOSER TO COMIN’ HOME.”
AND, I ENJOY MY LIFE. I LOVE WHAT I’M DOING. I LOVE MY FAMILY. BUT, I DON’T WANT TO BE AFRAID
OF LEAVIN’, I WANT TO LOOK FORWARD TO IT, AMEN? AUDIENCE: AMEN. JOYCE: 1 JOHN 2:15-17,
“DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD OR THE THINGS IN THE WORLD. IF ANYONE LOVES THE WORLD,
THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM.”
NOW, YOU KNOW, THAT’S A PRETTY STRONG STATEMENT. I MEAN, WHAT’S JESUS SAYING? “YOU’RE EITHER GOING
TO LOVE ME–” WE HAVE TO KEEP GOD FIRST. YOU CAN ENJOY THE THINGS IN THE
WORLD, NOT, “WORLDLY THINGS,” BUT THE THINGS THAT
GOD HAS PUT IN THE EARTH. HE PUT THEM HERE FOR US TO
ENJOY BUT WE CAN’T BECOME ATTACHED TO IT. AMEN? DON’T EVER MISTREAT PEOPLE
TO GET THINGS. USE THINGS TO BE A BLESSING
TO PEOPLE. I’MMA REPEAT THAT. DON’T EVER MISTREAT PEOPLE
TO GET THINGS, USE THINGS TO BE A BLESSING TO PEOPLE. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: “FOR ALL THAT
IS IN THE WORLD– THE DESIRES OF THE FLESH,
THE DESIRES OF THE EYES AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE–
IS NOT FROM THE FATHER, BUT IS FROM THE WORLD. AND THE WORLD IS PASSING AWAY
ALONG WITH ITS DESIRES, BUT WHOEVER DOES THE WILL
OF GOD ABIDES FOREVER.” WOW. THE WORLD IS PASSING AWAY. SOMEDAY THIS THING IS NOT
GONNA BE HERE ANYMORE. REVELATION 21:1-4, “THEN I SAW
A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH, FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE
FIRST EARTH HAD PASSED AWAY, AND THE SEA WAS NO MORE. AND I SAW THE HOLY CITY,
NEW JERUSALEM, COMING DOWN OUT OF HEAVEN FROM GOD,
PREPARED AS A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND. AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE
FROM THE THRONE SAYING, ‘BEHOLD, THE DWELLING PLACE
OF GOD IS WITH MAN. HE WILL DWELL WITH THEM,
AND THEY WILL BE HIS PEOPLE, AND GOD HIMSELF WILL BE
WITH THEM AS THEIR GOD. HE WILL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR
FROM THEIR EYES, AND DEATH SHALL BE NO MORE,
NEITHER SHALL THERE BE MOURNING, NOR CRYING, NOR PAIN ANYMORE,
FOR THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.'” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: I THINK, WE NEED
TO THINK ABOUT IT A LITTLE MORE THAN WHAT WE DO. YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY,
TO BE HONEST, THE BIBLE DOESN’T TELL US A LOT ABOUT
WHAT HEAVEN IS GONNA BE LIKE. AND, I’VE PONDERED THAT
BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE, IF GOD GAVE A MORE EXPLICIT
EXPLANATION, MORE PEOPLE MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN GOING. BUT, OF COURSE, WE KNOW THAT
GOD KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING, SO… BUT, I SAW THIS JUST A COUPLE
OF WEEKS AGO, I’LL TELL YOU WHY HE DOESN’T
TELL US ANY MORE THAN WHAT HE DOES. BECAUSE, IT IS SO UNIMAGINABLY,
AWESOMELY, WONDERFUL THAT IF HE TRIED TO EXPLAIN IT,
WE WOULDN’T GET IT ANYWAY. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: WE WOULDN’T GET IT. WE CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE
THE ATMOSPHERE OF HEAVEN, OR THAT KIND OF LOVE,
OR A PLACE WHERE NOBODY’S ANGRY, NOBODY’S JEALOUS,
AND EVERYBODY TOTALLY LOVES EVERYBODY ELSE. MY GOODNESS, AREN’T YOU TIRED
OF PEOPLE FIGHTING? AUDIENCE: YES. JOYCE: AREN’T YOU TIRED
OF THE SILLINESS? I MEAN, THE NEWS, I DON’T EVEN
KNOW HOW YOU CAN CALL IT NEWS ANYMORE. IT’S JUST LIKE, THIS ONE KILLED
THAT ONE AND SOMEBODY ELSE DID SOMETHIN’ ELSE. AND YOU KNOW, THEN IF YOU’VE
GOT ENOUGH MONEY, YOU CAN BUY YOUR WAY OUT OF IT,
AND IT’S JUST LIKE– I’M JUST LIKE… BUT, ONE DAY IT’S ALL GONNA
BE OVER. AND, WE WILL STAND BEFORE GOD,
AND THE BIBLE SAYS WE WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF OUR LIVES. NOW, HERE’S THE THING. YOU’RE NOT EVER GONNA BE
JUDGED BASED ON WHETHER YOU GET INTO HEAVEN OR NOT,
IF YOU’RE A BELIEVER. IF YOUR NAME IS WRITTEN
IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE, THERE’S GONNA BE NO JUDGMENT
ABOUT YOUR SALVATION. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: BUT, WE WILL BE
JUDGED–AS BELIEVERS, WE WILL BE JUDGED ON OUR
WORKS AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY WERE PURE WORKS. IN CORINTHIANS, IT SAYS THAT
ALL OF OUR WORKS WILL PASS BEFORE THE EYES OF FIRE
AND ANY WORK THAT WE HAVE BUILT UPON THE FOUNDATION,
WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST, CAN EITHER BE BUILT WITH WOOD,
HAY, STRAW, OR STUBBLE, GOLD, SILVER, AND IF THEY’RE
IMPURE WORKS, THEY’LL BE BURNED UP IN THE EYES OF FIRE. AND IF THEY’RE PURE WORKS,
THEY WILL LAST AND WE’LL BE REWARDED FOR THEM. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY
PEOPLE DO GOOD THINGS, BUT THEY DO THEM, “TO BE SEEN,
TO BE NOTICED, TO GET APPLAUSE, TO BE WELL THOUGHT OF”? AND, IT GOES ON IN THE CHURCH
ALL THE TIME. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE SUCH A HARD
TIME KEEPIN’ OUR MOUTH SHUT ABOUT WHAT WE DO. NOW, I LOVE THIS PART. ROMANS 8:22 AND 23,
“FOR WE KNOW THAT THE WHOLE CREATION HAS BEEN GROANING
TOGETHER IN THE PAINS OF CHILDBIRTH UNTIL NOW. AND NOT ONLY THE CREATION,
BUT WE OURSELVES, WHO HAVE THE FIRSTFRUITS
OF THE SPIRIT, GROAN INWARDLY AS WE WAIT EAGERLY
FOR ADOPTION AS SONS, FOR THE REDEMPTION
OF OUR BODIES.” SO, NOT ONLY DO WE GROAN,
BUT ALL OF CREATION GROANS WAITING FOR THE MESS TO BE OVER. CREATION GROANS, EVEN CREATION
HAS GOT ENOUGH SENSE TO KNOW IT WASN’T MEANT FOR THIS. IS ANYBODY UNDERSTANDING THIS? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: IS IT HELPING YOU
TO, MAYBE, UNDERSTAND ANY OF THE DISSATISFACTION… AUDIENCE: YES. JOYCE: …IN YOUR LIFE? HERE’S THE THING,
IF YOU KNOW WHAT THAT FEELING IS, THINK OF HOW MUCH
TROUBLE IT’S GOING TO SAVE YOU. AND, YOU CAN ENJOY YOUR
LIFE SO MUCH MORE BECAUSE WHEN YOU’RE GOING ALONG AND
ENJOYING YOUR LIFE AND THEN, YOU HAVE ONE OF THESE,
DISCONTENT ATTACKS, YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS. IT’S LIKE, “NO DEVIL. I KNOW WHAT THAT IS. YOU AIN’T GETTIN’ ME THIS TIME. I’M NOT GONNA GET SIDETRACKED
HERE AND GO CHASING AFTER SOME, THING.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: SEE? THE DEVIL USES THAT STUFF
TO DERAIL US FROM OUR PURPOSE AND WE GO CHASING AFTER
SOMETHING THAT’S NOT GONNA SATISFY US ANYWAY. WE FORSAKE THE FOUNTAIN OF
LIVING WATERS AND WE DIG WELLS THAT HAVE NO WATER IN ‘EM. WE GET A NEW BODY. AUDIENCE: WHOO! JOYCE: LORD HAVE MERCY,
NO CELLULITE. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: NO CORNS
ON YOUR FEET, NO BUNIONS… [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: NO PLANTERS
FASCIITIS OR ACHILLES HEEL,OR… [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: DON’T YOU KNOW THAT
IT MAKES THE DEVIL MAD WHEN YOU’VE GOT–WHEN HE JUST
CAN’T MAKE YOU UNHAPPY? JUST IMAGINE HOW THAT
FRUSTRATES HIM. ‘CAUSE, YOU KNOW WHAT? YOUR JOY IS REALLY WHAT
HE’S AFTER. “IT’S THE JOY OF THE LORD
THAT’S YOUR STRENGTH.” PHILIPPIANS 3:20 AND 21,
“BUT OUR CITIZENSHIP IS IN HEAVEN, AND FROM
IT WE AWAIT A SAVIOR, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
WHO WILL TRANSFORM OUR LOWLY BODY TO BE LIKE
HIS GLORIOUS BODY, BY THE POWER THAT ENABLES
HIM EVEN TO SUBJECT ALL THINGS TO HIMSELF.”
WOW. IT’S A MYSTERY YET
TO BE REVEALED, 1 CORINTHIANS 15:50-55,
“I TELL YOU THIS, BROTHERS: FLESH AND BLOOD CANNOT
INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD, NOR DOES THE PERISHABLE
INHERIT THE IMPERISHABLE. BEHOLD! I TELL YOU A MYSTERY. WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP,”
HE MEANS DIE, “BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED,
CHANGED IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE,
AT THE LAST TRUMPET. FOR THE TRUMPET WILL
SOUND, AND THE DEAD WILL BE RAISED IMPERISHABLE,
AND WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: IN A MOMENT,
IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE. AND IF YOU CAN JUST USE
YOUR IMAGINATION WITH ME, I DON’T HAVE TIME TO ACTUALLY
DO THIS BUT I’VE TOLD PEOPLE BEFORE, YOU KNOW,
WE’RE IN A WALK WITH GOD. AND, SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
SAVED LONGER THAN OTHERS, THE LONGER YOU BEEN SAVED,
THE FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD YOU SHOULD BE. I MEAN, IF YOU’VE BEEN SAVED
50 YEARS AND YOU STILL– WELL, YOU GET IT. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: THERE’S A LITTLE
SOMETHIN’ WRONG. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? IF YOU’RE WORKING WITH GOD,
AND YOU’RE WORKING WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT,
AND YOU’RE LOVIN’ JESUS, AND YOU’RE LETTIN’ HIM
WORK IN YOUR LIFE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMPARE
YOURSELF WITH WHERE SOMEBODY ELSE IS AT SPIRITUALLY. YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMPARE
YOUR PRAYER LIFE WITH THEM, OR YOU’RE HOLINESS LEVEL
WITH THEM, OR HOW MANY GREAT THINGS THEY’RE ACCOMPLISHING
COMPARED TO WHAT YOU’RE ACCOMPLISHING. WE’VE DONE A GREAT THING
IF WE CAN JUST GET UP AND GET THROUGH THE DAY HAPPY,
LOVIN’ JESUS. AMEN? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND SO, MAYBE,
WHEN JESUS COMES WHEN THE TRUMPET BLOWS,
MAYBE SOMEBODY’S HERE, AND SOMEBODY ELSE IS OVER HERE,
AND SOMEBODY ELSE IS OVER HERE, AND SOMEBODY ELSE’S
ALMOST MADE IT. BUT, WHEN THE TRUMPET BLOWS,
I BELIEVE JESUS WILL STEP ACROSS THAT LINE
AND WHEREVER YOU’RE AT, HE’LL GET YOU AND BRING YOU
THE REST OF THE WAY. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: SO, ENJOY WHERE
YOU’RE AT IN THE LORD. IF YOU’RE NOT WHERE SOMEBODY
ELSE IS AT, SO WHAT? JUST GET UP EVERY DAY
AND DO YOUR BEST. IF YOU’RE PRAYING FIVE MINUTES
EVERY MORNING AND YOU’RE JUST THRILLED ABOUT IT,
DON’T GO TO BREAKFAST WITH SISTER SUPER CHRISTIAN
AND LISTEN TO HOW SHE PRAYS FOUR HOURS EVERY MORNING,
AND THEN GET CONDEMNED AND THINK YOU’RE NOT
DOING ANYTHING. LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE WITH GOD. AND THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT
WE SHOULDN’T LEARN AND GROW AND THAT OTHER PEOPLE’S
EXAMPLE CAN’T BE GOOD FOR US. BUT, YOU’RE NOT TO COMPETE
WITH OTHER PEOPLE AND TRY TO BE LIKE THEY ARE. WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT
GOD LOVES YOU JUST THE WAY YOU ARE? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: WELL, WHAT IS HEAVEN
GONNA BE LIKE? WELL, THERE’S MORE THAT
WE DON’T KNOW THAN WHAT WE DO BUT IT DOES SAY THERE’LL
BE NO HUNGER AND NO THIRST. WE’RE GONNA EAT IN HEAVEN,
BUT WE’LL NEVER FEEL HUNGRY. REVELATION 19:6-9,
NOW, THIS IS AN IMPORTANT PART, DON’T LOSE ME. “THEN I HEARD WHAT SEEMED
TO BE THE VOICE OF A GREAT MULTITUDE, LIKE THE ROAR OF
MANY WATERS AND LIKE THE SOUND OF MIGHTY PEALS OF THUNDER,
CRYING OUT, ‘HALLELUJAH! FOR THE LORD OUR GOD
THE ALMIGHTY REIGNS.'” NOW, THESE ARE SOME OF THE
THINGS THAT THE APOSTLE JOHN SAW THAT’S RECORDED
IN REVELATIONS. HE HEARD, AND HE SAW THESE
THINGS, AND HE SAW THINGS THAT–PAUL SAID THAT
HE SAW THINGS IN THE THIRD HEAVENS THAT HE COULDN’T
EVEN TALK ABOUT. HE COULDN’T EVEN EXPLAIN IT. THERE WERE NO WORDS
TO EXPLAIN IT. “‘LET US REJOICE AND EXULT
AND GIVE HIM THE GLORY, FOR THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB
HAS COME, AND HIS BRIDE HAS MADE HERSELF READY.'”
NOW, THAT’S WHAT WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW. DID YOU HEAR ME? WE ARE THIS BRIDE THAT
HE’S TALKIN’ ABOUT AND JESUS IS THE BRIDEGROOM. AND, YOU THINK ABOUT A BRIDE,
HOW SHE PREPARES FOR HER WEDDING DAY. OH, MY GOODNESS. I MEAN, I’VE GOT A
GRANDDAUGHTER THAT KNOWS WHO SHE’S GONNA MARRY,
BUT THEY’RE NOT GOING TO GET MARRIED FOR A COUPLE
YEARS YET, WE HOPE [LAUGHING]. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: WELL, WHATEVER
GOD WANTS. BUT, LAST WEEK SHE’S OUT LOOKIN’
AT WEDDING VENUES, SHE SAID, “I WANT TO BE PREPARED. I WANT TO BE READY.”
WHAT IF WE HAD THAT ATTITUDE? COME ON, WHAT IF WE HAD
THAT ATTITUDE? THIS IS NOT MY HOME,
THIS IS PRACTICE. I’M JUST LEARNIN’ HOW TO LOVE
PEOPLE HERE. I’M JUST PRACTICIN’,
LEARNING HOW TO FORGIVE, AND LEARNING HOW TO NOT GET
ANGRY AND NOT BE SELFISH. I’M A BRIDE PREPARING MYSELF
TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM. COME ON, NOT FOCUSING ON
EVERYTHING WE WANT AND NEED BUT FOCUSING ON BEING PREPARED
TO MEET OUR BRIDEGROOM. I MEAN, A BRIDE LOOKS HER BEST
ON THE WEDDING DAY. SHE’S HAD THE SKIN WORKED ON,
SHE’S BEEN LOSING WEIGHT, I MEAN, SHE HAS HER MAKEUP
DONE PROFESSIONALLY, SHE GETS HER NAILS DONE,
SHE GETS HER HAIR DONE. THE DRESS HAS GOTTA
BE PERFECT. OH, THERE’S SUCH A FUSS
MADE OVER GETTING HER READY TO MEET HER BRIDEGROOM. WHOO, JESUS, I HOPE SOMEBODY’S
UNDERSTANDING ME. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: OKAY. NOW, I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU
A COUPLE THINGS ABOUT WHAT HEAVEN LOOKS LIKE BEFORE
I READ THIS SENTENCE, ‘CAUSE THEN I’M GONNA HAVE TO–
THE WHOLE CITY’S GOLD, NOT JUST THE STREETS. FOR SOME REASON, I HAD THE
IDEA IT WAS JUST THE STREETS. NO, IT SAYS, THE WHOLE CITY
IS MADE OF PURE GOLD, LIKE CRYSTAL. TWELVE GATES, EACH ONE MADE
OF A SINGLE PEARL. NOW, I DON’T KNOW HOW BIG THOSE
GATES ARE, BUT WHOA, CAN YOU IMAGINE A PEARL LIKE THAT? AND THE WALLS ARE ALL EMBEDDED
WITH THE FINEST OF GEMS, WITH RUBIES, AND DIAMONDS,
AND JASPER, AND ALL THESE DIFFERENT–A LOT OF GEMS
THAT I’VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF. I HAD SOMEBODY WRITE IN
A LONG TIME AGO, AND SAID MY RHINESTONE
EARRINGS WERE BOTHERING ‘EM. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: AND I THOUGHT,
“YOU’RE GONNA BE REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE IN HEAVEN.” [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: IF MY RHINESTONE
EARRINGS, OR MY RING, OR YOU KNOW, WHATEVER,
BOTHERS YOU…WHEW. OKAY, BACK TO THE MARRIAGE
SUPPER OF THE LAMB. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: MATTER OF FACT,
I’MMA READ A LITTLE BIT OF THIS AGAIN. “‘LET US REJOICE AND EXULT
AND GIVE HIM THE GLORY, FOR THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB
HAS COME, AND HIS BRIDE HAS MADE HERSELF READY. IT WAS GRANTED HER TO CLOTHE
HERSELF WITH FINE LINEN, BRIGHT AND PURE-‘”
WHICH REPRESENTS HOLINESS, “FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE
RIGHTEOUS DEEDS OF THE SAINTS. AND THE ANGEL SAID TO ME,
‘WRITE THIS: BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO ARE INVITED
TO THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB.'”
YOU’RE INVITED. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AMEN? IT’S AN INVITATION, THE LORD
IS SAYING TO YOU TONIGHT, “I’M INVITING YOU. I’M INVITING YOU TO ACCEPT ME,
TO BECOME PART OF MY BRIDE, TO PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE
MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB.” WHAT KIND OF A MEAL IS THAT
GONNA BE? OH, MY GOODNESS. WE GOT A GLORIFIED BODY. WE’RE IN THIS PERFECT
ATMOSPHERE. WE’RE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. IT’S AN INVITATION. AND, I’M GOING TO ISSUE THAT
INVITATION, RIGHT NOW. TO ANYONE HERE OR ANYONE
WATCHING BY TELEVISION, NO MATTER WHERE YOU’RE
AT IN THE WORLD, NO MATTER WHAT YOU’VE DONE IN THE PAST,
NO MATTER HOW FAR AWAY FROM GOD YOU’VE BEEN,
IF YOU’VE KILLED SOMEONE, IF YOU’VE DONE TERRIBLE,
TERRIBLE THINGS, TONIGHT, I WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT YOU’RE INVITED. YOU’RE INVITED. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND, YOU DON’T
HAVE TO DO ANYTHING. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS RSVP,
“YES, I WANT TO COME.” TO RECEIVE JESUS, ALL YOU DO
IS SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO HIM, BELIEVE THAT HE DIED FOR
YOUR SINS, THAT HE PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR SINS. BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS
CHRIST AND YOU SHALL BE SAVED. AND ALL THOSE WHO COME TO HIM,
HE WILL NEVER CAST AWAY. HE WILL NEVER CAST THEM OUT. ANYBODY WHO COMES TO HIM,
WILL NEVER BE REJECTED. THEY’LL NEVER BE CAST OUT. SO, IF YOU’VE NEVER RECEIVED
CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR AND YOU’RE READY TO TURN AWAY FROM
A LIFE OF SIN, RECEIVE CHRIST, AND START PREPARING YOURSELF,
IN A MINUTE, I’M GOING TO ASK YOU TO RAISE YOUR HAND. IF YOU HAVE BACKSLIDDEN,
YOU’VE SERVED GOD AT SOME TIME, OR TRIED TO, YOU DIDN’T
GET VERY FAR. YOU BACK SLID, YOU’VE GONE BACK
INTO SIN AND NOW THE DEVIL’S TELLIN’ YOU GOD’LL NEVER HAVE
YOU BACK OR MAYBE, YOU’VE TRIED FOUR, OR FIVE, SIX,
SEVEN TIMES, AND A LOT OF THAT IS IF YOU JUST DON’T–YOU
GOTTA HAVE THE RIGHT TEACHING. WHEN YOU GET BORN AGAIN,
YOU’VE GOTTA HAVE THE RIGHT TEACHING OR YOU DON’T KNOW
WHERE TO GO FROM THERE. OR MAYBE, YOU’RE ONE OF THOSE
PEOPLE THAT I WAS TALKIN’ ABOUT BEFORE, THAT IF SOMEBODY
ASKS YOU IF YOU’RE GOING TO HEAVEN YOU’D SAY, “I HOPE SO.”
NO, YOU CAN KNOW FOR SURE. YOU CAN HAVE ASSURANCE
OF WHERE YOU CAME FROM AND WHERE YOU’RE GOING. IF YOU’RE HERE TONIGHT,
AND IF YOU’RE HOME WATCHING BY TV, OR WATCHING ON YOUR IPAD,
OR YOUR PHONE, AND YOU WANNA BE PART OF THIS, YOU CAN DO
THE SAME THING RIGHT WHERE YOU’RE AT. IF THAT’S YOU, AND YOU
WANT TO PRAY TONIGHT, LET ME PRAY FOR YOU,
WILL YOU JUST SLIP YOUR HAND UP AND LET ME SEE
WHERE YOU’RE AT? COME ON, ALL OVER THE PLACE,
I WANT TO SEE THOSE HANDS. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: EVERYWHERE
IN THE BUILDING, I WANT TO SEE THOSE HANDS. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: YEAH. OKAY, LISTEN. CAN I ASK YOU TO DO THIS FOR ME,
NOT TO EMBARRASS YOU, BUT JUST TO GET YOU STARTED? IT’S KINDA LIKE A JUMP START. I’M NOT GONNA BRING
EVERYBODY DOWN TO THE FRONT ‘CAUSE THERE’D PROBABLY
BE TOO MANY PEOPLE, BUT IF YOU REALLY MEANT WHAT
YOU SAID, WHEN YOU RAISED YOUR HAND, I JUST WANT
YOU TO STAND UP. COME ON, JUST STAND UP. ALL OVER THE PLACE,
JUST STAND UP. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: COME ON,
EVERYWHERE, JUST STAND UP, STAND TO YOUR FEET. COME ON. ‘CAUSE SEE, WE’RE NOT TRYIN’
TO EMBARRASS YOU, BUT IF YOU WON’T TAKE A STAND IN HERE,
YOU’LL NEVER TAKE ONE OUT THERE. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: ALRIGHT. SOME CHRISTIAN THAT’S
AROUND THESE PEOPLE, JUST TOUCH ‘EM GENTLY,
PUT A LITTLE LOVE ON ‘EM. NOW, LET’S ALL PRAY TOGETHER. EVERYBODY PRAY THIS
PRAYER WITH ME: FATHER GOD, I LOVE YOU. JESUS, I BELIEVE IN YOU. I ACCEPT YOUR INVITATION. I WANT TO BE YOURS. I REPENT OF MY SINS. I BELIEVE YOU PAID FOR THEM. YOU TOOK MY PUNISHMENT. AND, I RECEIVE YOU, JESUS,
AS MY SAVIOR, AND MY LORD. AND, I RELEASE MYSELF TO YOU. TAKE ME JUST THE WAY I AM. AND, MAKE ME WHAT YOU WANT
ME TO BE. NOW, I BELIEVE I’M SAVED. I’M BORN AGAIN. I BELIEVE YOU LOVE ME. AND I’M ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN. I’M COMIN’ HOME. AMEN. COME ON, GIVE GOD
A BIG PRAISE. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] GINGER: IF YOU JUST PRAYED
THAT PRAYER WITH JOYCE, IT’S SO EXCITING AND I’M SO
HAPPY FOR YOU. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY OF GOD. WE REALLY ARE ONE BIG FAMILY
AND WE NEED TO SUPPORT AND LOVE EACH OTHER. A WONDERFUL NEW LIFE WITH
JESUS LIES AHEAD OF YOU. AND, JOYCE WOULD LIKE YOU

  6. A lot of people have been talking about feeling like this. Do you think we have been feeling like this more and more because Jesus is coming back soon so we feel it? We feel the want of our Lord stronger because He is about to take us home?

  7. Oh, for crying out loud….

    Fooling "Some of the people, all of the time," is your business model, Joyce.
    Don't you ever feel guilty spreading lies and stealing people's money?
