Inflection Point! - TD Jakes, Sunday Sermon (December-12-2021). Scripture: Judges 16:20-30 (KJV) You don’t need a new year; you need to reach the point of inflection — that point where true transformation takes place, a point of no return. The enemy knows your patterns, so he’s been hitting you with the same strategy. Enough is enough! While you’ve been up and down in a dark place, God was molding you for your inflection point — and this time you’re not going back. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Shake yourself loose of what was; this is your inflection point!
Naked and Not Ashamed - TD Jakes Sunday Sermon (December-05-2021). Scripture: Ezra 3:9-13 (KJV) What do you do when you have nothing left? Do you weep for what you lost or praise over what you have? The stripped-down believer is the strongest: one who is unable to hide behind the camouflaged clothes of society and is instead naked and vulnerable to his heavenly Father. When all is laid bare, when your perceptions inevitably fail you, when you cannot hide from yourself or the Lord, who will you be underneath? Are you naked and unashamed?
Operation Restoration - Bishop T.D. Jakes and Friends (November-18-2021). Speakers: Bishop T.D. Jakes, Pastor Dr. Cynthia James, and Pastor Michael Phillips. Scripture: Luke 15:3-32 (NIV) We are called to mirror God’s reflection, but are you blurring His image with your lack of mercy? In this panel discussion, the speakers reflect on the redemptive stories of the prodigal son and the woman with the lost coin as frameworks of God’s forgiveness. Whether it’s self-sabotage or life’s disadvantages that have us existing at a deficit, our enlightenment of His goodness is what ultimately leads us back to restoration. The onus is on each of us to light our candles and sweep our floors, but as the body of Christ, we must work together to welcome back any lost sheep into the flock.
Outnumbered - TD Jakes, Sunday Sermon (November-21-2021). Scripture: Numbers 13:26-33 (NIV) Are you outnumbered? In Numbers 13, Moses sent 12 spies to possess Canaan, but 10 of them believed it was impossible. Caleb, on the other hand, resolved not to come back empty-handed. His set-apart spirit silenced their disbelief, because even facts are powerless against God’s truth. Your confidence has the momentum to cut through the crowd’s murmuring. In the moments when you’re outnumbered, speak up and call it “done” — the giants will be forced to lay down. You might be one voice, but one voice has always been powerful enough to seize the land.
Build For Expansion! - TD Jakes Sunday Sermon (November-07-2021). Scripture: 2 Kings 3:8-19 (KJV) Date: Sunday, September 20, 2020. We've gotten so used to thinking like survivors that we've forgotten we're kings. You see, the problem with perpetually expecting decrease is that you never prepare for expansion. God will not let you die in your present wilderness, but you need to surrender your pauper mindset first. You have to dig in, sweat, and expand your relationships, resources, and capacity right here, right now. Don't let your surrounding conditions keep you from digging, because the miracle is in the mud. You want to find it? Then forget about the storm and grab your shovel!
It'll Work If You Work It! Part 2 - T.D. Jakes (October-14-2021). Scripture: 1 Kings 19:19-21 (NIV); 2 Kings 2:7-18 (NIV) Speakers: Bishop T.D. Jakes, Frederick “Sipp” Johnson, Marcus Dawson, Pastor Patrick Winfield II, Alison Draper Lolley How do you build relationships that maximize your impact? How do you reset your tools and resources so you’re not relying on relics of the past? How do you close the book on who you were so you can focus on whom you will become? Bishop T.D. Jakes continues his seminal series on how to work your way in the world with an insightful panel made up of renowned barber and TV personality Frederick “Sipp” Johnson, music entrepreneur Marcus Dawson, influential Pastor Patrick Winfield II, and business executive Alison Draper Lolley!
It'll Work If You Work It - TD Jakes Sunday Sermon (October-10-2021). Scripture: 1 Kings 19:19-21; 2 Kings 2:7-18 (NIV). It only takes a glimpse of God's glory to motivate us to move, but our "yes" requires sacrifice. Are you willing to work it to get from here to His there? Are you humble enough to serve when it means not making a name for yourself? Or are your feelings getting in the way of what He put in your hand? It's not about our mantle, but God's mission. God can take you from nothing to suddenly, but He has to find you working it in the meantime. Passing the test doesn't always mean winning, but staying — even when we don't feel like it.
Anointed for the Altercation - TD Jakes, Sunday Sermon (June-27-2021). Scripture: Luke 4:1-15 (KJV). Are you prepared for the fight of your life? The enemy is mobilizing his brigade of demonic forces, witches, and wiccans, and encroaching territories to stand against you. But on your left is the flow of God’s anointing pouring over you, empowering and equipping you for the battle. On your right is the rest of the triumvirate of God standing alongside you and fighting for you! God will not send you into war if you’re not ready for it — and, friend, you are indeed ready for it!
The Giver Comes First! - T.D. Jakes Sunday Sermon (June-13-2021). Scripture: Genesis 22:1-14 (NIV) Have you caught yourself dreaming about the gift rather than the giver? It’s time to wake up and get back to God. He’s testing you by asking that you sacrifice what He gave you and He’s taking you to a place that you’ve never been. But guess what? You won’t be alone on the way, and God’s going to bless you while you’re still in the region. When you get there, give Him praise because a ram will be right there waiting on you! Get in the region, get in the place, and give God the glory because He comes first!
Sole Survivor - TD Jakes, Sunday Sermon (May-09-2021).Scripture: John 19:23-27 (NIV) " 23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. 24 “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.” This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said, “They divided my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.”[a] So this is what the soldiers did. 25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman,[b] here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home."
And still, she stands. What's the mark of a mother's strength? Her ability to survive. In John 19, we see Mary, the mother of Jesus, become Mary, the sole survivor. She was there for Jesus' alpha moment, His baffling birth; now she stands in the place of excruciating pain, Jesus' omega moment on the cross. Mothers have to stare at things they don't want to see. They have to watch their children suffer through things they can't help them through. From alpha to omega, she endures the unbearable. But even after everything you love leaves, God stays. Jesus hung His head on the cross, yet Mary still stood. She knew that God wasn’t leaving her homeless and that her motherhood was not a wash. She knew that even as a sole survivor, she was backed by a great God — and so are you.
