THE LAW OF 5% | EPISODE 992


ANNOUNCER: WELCOME TO MANNA-FEST HOSTED BY INTERNATIONAL EVANGELIST, TEACHER AND AUTHOR, PERRY STONE. ENJOY UNIQUE INSIGHT INTO PROPHETIC AND PRACTICAL TRUTHS. ITS TIME TO FEAST ON FRESH MANNA SO GET READY TO BE BLESSED AND ENCOURAGED. AND NOW HERE IS YOUR HOST AND TEACHER, PERRY STONE… PERRY: I’M COMING TO YOU FROM MOUNT ZION. THE CITY OF JERUSALEM, AND I’M TELLING YOU LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE PROPHECIES ARE BEING FULFILLED BEFORE OUR VERY EYES AS THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD ARE ASCENDING TO JERUSALEM AND SOME OF THEM ARE COMING DOWN FROM EUROPE TO WORSHIP THE LORD IN THIS CITY. CHRISTIANS FROM NATIONS OF THE WORLD. THERE’S EVEN MUSLIM NATIONS WHERE PEOPLE ARE COMING INTO THIS CITY. IT’S AMAZING. AND I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING. DIRECTLY BEHIND ME IS A MOUNTAIN CALLED MOUNT ZION. SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THAT MOUNTAIN THAT I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT THAT IS THE SECRET TO BEING SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR WORK FOR GOD. TO BEING SUCCESSFUL WITH THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS. OF HAVING THE BLESSING OF GOD. NOW I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU A VERY PRACTICAL TEACHING AND I WANT YOU TO PAY CAREFUL ATTENTION TO WHAT I’M GOING TO BE SHARING WITH YOU BECAUSE I HAD BEGAN TO DO SOME RESEARCH. I HAD HEARD THIS OVER THE YEARS AND I CONFIRMED THIS AND I’M GOING TO READ THIS TO YOU FROM THIS BLUE PIECE OF PAPER THAT I HAVE WHERE I KEEP SOME OF MY NOTES ON. NUMBER ONE, THIS IS CALLED THE LAW OF FIVE PERCENT. ONLY ONE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE REACH THE TOP. MEANING THEY MAKE IT IN WHAT THEY DESIRE TO DO. THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT THEY DESIRE TO DO AND THEY ARE BLESSED THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFE BECAUSE THEY HAVE FOUND THEIR PURPOSE. ONE PERCENT OUT OF A HUNDRED PERCENT REACH THE TOP. HERE’S THE SECOND STATISTIC. FOUR PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE REACH A LEADERSHIP LEVEL. THAT MEANS THEY’RE THE HEAD OF A COMPANY. THEY’RE THE HEAD OF OF SMALL BUSINESS. THEY’RE THE PASTOR OF A CHURCH. THEY’RE THE LEADER OF AN ORGANIZATION. AND SO NINETY FIVE PERCENT REACH A PLATEAU AND STAY CONTENT WHERE THEY’RE AT. THAT MEANS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THAT ONLY FIVE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE THAT EVER ATTEMPT TO DO SOMETHING FEEL SUCCESSFUL OR ARE TOTALLY ONE HUNDRED PERCENT SUCCESSFUL IN THE LEVEL OF WHERE THEY’RE AT. NOW I WROTE THIS DOWN. ONE PERCENT SEE THE OBSTACLES AND IMMEDIATELY OVERCOME THEM. THAT’S WHY THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL. THE FOUR PERCENT SEE THE OBSTACLES BUT EVENTUALLY OVERCOME THEM. THAT’S THE FOUR PERCENT. BUT THE NINETY FIVE PERCENT SEE THE OBSTACLES AND MAY OR MAY NOT OVERCOME THEM. AND THAT’S WHY A LOT OF PEOPLE MOVE FROM ONE POSITION TO THE NEXT, ONE JOB TO THE NEXT. BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT HAPPY WHERE THEY ARE AND THEY CAN NEVER SEEM TO FIND THEIR PLACE. SO I WANT TO ASK YOU A QUESTION. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PEOPLE WHO CAN STEP OUT IN LIFE AND DO THEIR VISION AND DO THEIR DREAM AND DO THEIR ASSIGNMENT AND THE PEOPLE THAT JUST DON’T SEEM TO BE ABLE TO EVER GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER? YOU KNOW, YEARS AGO WHEN GOD CALLED ME INTO THE MINISTRY, HE GAVE ME A SEVEN POINT OUTREACH PLAN AND THAT’S WHEN I WAS 18 YEARS OF AGE. AND IN THOSE SEVEN OUTREACHES I LITERALLY PURSUED EVERY OUTREACH THAT THE LORD EVER GAVE ME AND WE HAVE WATCHED THOSE OUTREACHES REACH THE ENTIRE WORLD TODAY WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND OF COURSE THROUGH THE MANNA-FEST TELECAST. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT THROUGHOUT MY MINISTRY WHEN THE LORD TOLD ME MANNA-FEST. HE GAVE ME THE NAME OF THIS TELEVISION PROGRAM 12 YEARS BEFORE WE EVER WENT ON TELEVISION. AND THE LORD BEGAN TO GIVE ME THE PLAN OF HOW TO DO IT. I CAN SAY THIS BEFORE THE LORD AND TO THE GLORY OF GOD. THAT EVERYTHING THAT IS EVER PUT IN OUR SPIRIT TO BUILD, WHETHER IT’S THE OMEGA CENTER INTERNATIONAL. WHETHER IT’S ISOW, THE INTERNATIONAL BIBLE SCHOOL ON THE INTERNET CALLED THE SCHOOL OF THE WORD. WHATEVER IT IS THE LORD HAS HELPED ME TO BE ABLE TO DO IT BECAUSE WHEN I SET THE GOAL AND I KNEW IT WAS HIS WILL I PURSUED IT AFTER IT. BUT THERE IS A SECRET TO ALL OF THIS. THERE REALLY IS. IT’S SOMETHING THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T APPRECIATE, THEY DON’T TAP INTO OR THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND. BUT I’VE GOT TO BUILD INTO THE WORD TODAY AND TAKE YOU INTO THE WORD AND INTO SOME FASCINATING STORIES TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M ABOUT TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY ON THE MANNA-FEST TELECAST. NOW FIRST OF ALL LET ME READ THIS VERSE TO YOU FROM MATTHEW CHAPTER 17, VERSES 1 THROUGH 4. AFTER SIX DAYS JESUS TOOK PETER, JAMES, AND JOHN HIS BROTHER, LED THEM UP ON A HIGH MOUNTAIN BY THEMSELVES; AND HE WAS TRANSFIGURED BEFORE THEM. HIS FACE SHONE LIKE THE SUN, AND HIS CLOTHES BECAME AS WHITE AS THE LIGHT. AND BEHOLD, MOSES AND ELIJAH APPEARED UNTO THEM. NOW IT HAS BEEN POINTED OUT FOR QUITE SOME TIME THAT THERE WERE THREE INNER CIRCLE DISCIPLES AND THEY WERE PETER, JAMES AND JOHN. THE OTHER NINE DISCIPLES WERE NOT PERMITTED TO GO TO CERTAIN PLACES WITH JESUS. FOR EXAMPLE, ONLY THREE WERE PERMITTED TO GO WITH CHRIST ON THE MOUNT OF TRANSFIGURATION. PETER, JAMES AND JOHN. ONLY THREE WERE ALLOWED TO GO WITH CHRIST IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE. PETER, JAMES AND JOHN. NOW A QUESTION ARISES. WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PETER, JAMES AND JOHN AND THE OTHER NINE DISCIPLES? FOR EXAMPLE PETER, IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT PETER DID, PETER BECAME THE LEADER OF THE JEWISH BRANCH OF THE CHURCH FROM THE DAY OF PENTECOST FORWARD. IF YOU LOOK AT THE APOSTLE JOHN, HE WROTE THE BOOK OF REVELATION. THE GREAT APOCALYPTIC VISION OF THE LAST DAYS. IF YOU LOOK, FOR EXAMPLE, AT JAMES. HE LED THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN JERUSALEM. PETER, JAMES AND JOHN. NOW THAT BRINGS US TO THIS QUESTION. WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER DISCIPLES? FOR EXAMPLE, ANDREW. WHAT DID HE DO? BARTHOLOMEW. PHILLIP. NATHANIEL. YOU HAVE THOMAS. JUSTUS, CALLED MATTHIAS. WHAT DID THEY DO? YOU DON’T READ WHERE THEY WROTE A BOOK IN THE BIBLE. YOU DON’T READ WHERE THEY WROTE AN EPISTLE. WE DO KNOW ACCORDING TO FOX’S BOOK OF MARTYRS THAT THEY ALL DIED MARTYRS. WE’LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A MOMENT. ALL BUT THE APOSTLE JOHN. BUT WHY IS IT, I MEAN HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF IF YOU HAVE A GROUP OF CHILDREN IN A FAMILY, WHY DOES ONE SUCCEED AND THE OTHERS STRUGGLE? IF YOU HAVE A GENERATION, OR SHOULD I SAY IT THIS WAY? SEVERAL GENERATIONS IN A FAMILY. WHY IS IT THAT SOME OF THEM TEND TO MAKE IT IN WHAT THEY DO AND OTHERS DO NOT? NOW SOME WOULD SUGGEST IT’S THE LEVEL OF HARD WORK VERSUS THOSE WHO DREAM ABOUT DOING SOMETHING AND THOSE WHO ARE DOING SOMETHING. IN OTHER WORDS, THERE ARE HEARERS OF THE WORD AND THERE ARE DOERS OF THE WORD. THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT IMMEDIATELY, WHEN THEY HAVE A VISION OR A DREAM OR A DESIRE, THEY SET OUT TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. AND THERE’S OTHERS THAT FIVE YEARS LATER ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THAT DREAM OR THAT DESIRE. NOW THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE SAID HOWEVER ABOUT LEADERSHIP. IS LEADERSHIP INBRED? ARE YOU BORN WITH A CERTAIN DNA TO BE A LEADER OR CAN YOU MAKE YOURSELF TO BE A LEADER? ARE YOU BORN JUST TO BE A FOLLOWER? ARE YOU BORN FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING? NOW LET ME TALK TO YOU FOR A MOMENT ABOUT TWO STORIES. MANY MANY YEARS AGO IN THE KOREAN WAR; SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE KOREAN WAR, THEY NOTICED SOMETHING. AS THE KOREANS BEGAN TO TAKE PRISONERS OF WAR FROM THE UNITED STATES, THEY WATCHED THOSE PRISONERS OF WAR FOR SEVERAL DAYS AND THEN THEY SEPARATED THEM. AND HERE’S WHAT THEY NOTICED. THAT THERE WERE CERTAIN MEN THAT THE OTHER PRISONERS WOULD GRAVITATE TOWARDS. THEY WERE ALWAYS SEEN TALKING TO THESE PARTICULAR MEN AND THEY KNEW THESE MEN WERE LEADERS AND THESE MEN WOULD PLAN AN ESCAPE. SO THEY TOOK THE LEADERS AND SEPARATED THEM FROM THE OTHER SOLDIERS. BECAUSE THE OTHER SOLDIERS AT THAT POINT WOULD HAVE NO LEADERSHIP. NO ONE TO TELL THEM, HERE’S WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO AND HERE’S HOW WE’RE GOING TO DO IT. AND THEY SEPARATED THE LEADERS JUST AMONG THEMSELVES AND PUT A SPECIAL GROUP OF SOLDIERS OVER THEM. AND THEREFORE THEY UNDERSTOOD THE POWER OF SOMEONE IN A GROUP BECOMING A LEADER AND CAUSING THE OTHERS TO FOLLOW THEM. THE SAME THING HAPPENED ACCORDING TO HISTORY IN WHAT WAS CALLED THE GERMAN WAR. THE GERMANS DID THE SAME THING. WHEN THE GERMANS TOOK AMERICAN PRISONERS OF WAR THEY BEGAN TO SEPARATE THEM INTO TWO GROUPS. AGAIN, THEY WATCHED THESE SOLDIERS TOGETHER FOR A PERIOD OF TIME AND THEY BEGAN TO NOTICE THAT THERE WERE CERTAIN SOLDIERS THAT EVERYONE WAS GRAVITATING TO. THEY WOULD PULL THOSE SOLDIERS OUT. PUT THEM INTO A CERTAIN CAMP BY THEMSELVES AND LET THE OTHER SOLDIERS, WHAT WE WOULD CALL JUST THE COMMON SOLDIERS, ALONE. SO THERE WERE TWO GROUPS. LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS. AND THAT’S THE WAY THAT IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN. THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE LEADERS AND THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE FOLLOWERS. NOW IF I WERE TO SAY TO SECULAR PEOPLE, WHAT IS THERE THAT CAUSES YOU TO FOLLOW A MINISTRY? SOME WOULD SAY, WELL IT’S THE PERSONALITY OF THE MINISTER. SOME WOULD SAY IT’S THE GIFTING OF THE MINISTER. SOME WHO ARE CHARISMATIC AND PENTECOSTAL WOULD SAY, IT’S THE ANOINTING OR THE POWER OF GOD THAT’S IN THE MINISTRY. SOME WOULD SUGGEST IT’S THE TEACHING OF THE WORD. I’M FED BY THE TEACHING OF THE WORD THROUGH THAT PARTICULAR MINISTRY. HOWEVER, IT’S A LITTLE BIT MORE DEEPER THAN THIS, AND LET ME EXPLAIN IT TO YOU FROM DAVID’S A MIGHTY MEN. NOW THE BIBLE TELLS YOU, AND WE’RE GOING TO TAKE THESE VERSES FROM 1ST SAMUEL 13, 2ND SAMUEL 23. THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT WHEN DAVID WAS BEING CHASED IN THE WILDERNESS BY HIS FATHER IN LAW, KING SAUL, WHO TRIED TO KILL HIM BY THE WAY. SOME HAVE SUGGESTED THAT IF YOU GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE NARRATIVE THERE’S ABOUT 21 TIMES WHERE SAUL WAS EITHER CHASING DAVID OR AFTER HIM OR TRYING TO KILL HIM IN SOME FORM. YOU’LL DISCOVER THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT DAVID HAD 600 MIGHTY MEN. NOW THESE WERE MEN WHO CHOSE TO FOLLOW HIM. THAT SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM SAUL. BUT CHOSE INSTEAD TO FOLLOW DAVID BECAUSE THEY KNEW HE WAS ANOINTED TO BE THE NEXT KING OF ISRAEL. NOW THE BIBLE TELLS YOU THAT OUT OF THE 600, AND THIS IS FOUND IN 2ND SAMUEL 23, THERE WERE A TOTAL OF 30 MEN THAT WERE MIGHTIER OUT OF THE 600. THESE WERE MEN THAT STOOD OUT. THESE WERE MEN THAT COULD FIGHT BATTLES. THESE WERE MEN THAT DAVID WOULD SEND INTO A BATTLE WITH OTHER MEN AS THE SOLDIERS. BUT THEN WE READ IN THE BIBLE THAT OUT OF THE 30 THERE WERE THREE MIGHTIER THAN ALL AMONG THE 30. SO OUT OF DAVID’S 600 MEN THERE WERE ONLY THREE THAT WERE MIGHTIER THAN ALL OF THEM. THAT STOOD OUT ABOVE ALL. NOW THAT’S A VERY LOW PERCENT. NOW REMEMBER, WE TALKED EARLIER ABOUT THE LAW OF FIVE PERCENT WHICH SAYS THAT ONLY FIVE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE IN LIFE EVER ARE HAPPY BY THE END OF THEIR LIFE KNOWING THAT THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED IN WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO AND FELT SUCCESSFUL WITH EVERYTHING THEY SET THEIR HANDS TO. NOW WHO WERE THESE THREE MIGHTY MEN THAT WERE GREATER THAN ALL OF THE OTHERS COMBINED? 600 MEN. 30 THAT WERE GREATER OUT OF THE 600. 3 THAT WERE GREATER OUT OF THE 30. MEANING THERE WERE THREE THAT STOOD OUT. NOW THE BIBLE GIVES YOU THEIR NAMES. NOW THIS IS 2ND SAMUEL. AGAIN, CHAPTER 23, VERSES 8 THROUGH 13. THERE WAS A MAN CALLED ADINO THAT THE BIBLE SAID SLEW 800 MEN AT ONE TIME WITH A SPEAR. NOW THAT WOULD BE A REMARKABLE FEAT BY ANY SINGLE SOLDIER. SO YOU CAN SEE, THIS WAS A WARRIOR. A FIGHTER. A MAN THAT WAS PASSIONATE AND DETERMINED TO WIN HIS BATTLES. THE SECOND MAN MENTIONED IS ELEAZAR AND HE SMOTE THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL UNTIL HIS HAND CLEAVED TO HIS SWORD. YOU COULD HARDLY TAKE HIS FINGERS OFF OF HIS SWORD BECAUSE HE HELD ON TO IT FOR SO LONG. THIS WAS ONE OF DAVID’S MIGHTIER MEN OUT OF THE MIGHTY MEN. THEN THERE’S A THIRD ONE BY THE NAME OF SHAMMAH THAT THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT HE HAD, WE WOULD CALL IT A BEAN PATCH, AND THE PHILISTINES KEPT INVADING HIS BEAN PATCH AND HE FINALLY SAID, YOU HAVE INVADED MY BEAN PATCH FOR THE LAST TIME. AND HE TOOK ON THE ENTIRE PHILISTINE ARMY AND DEFEATED THEM THAT WAS COMING AGAINST HIS PERSONAL PROPERTY. SO YOU HAVE A MAN CALLED ADINO, ELEAZAR AND YOU HAVE A MAN BY THE NAME OF SHAMMAH. SO OUT OF 600 MEN 30 PERCENT STOOD OUT AMONG THE 600. BUT ONLY 3 STOOD OUT AMONG THE 30. NOW THE LAW OF FIVE PERCENT IS THIS, AND WE’RE GOING TO GET IN JUST A MOMENT, YOU’VE GOT TO STAY WITH ME BECAUSE I’M GOING TO GET TO YOU, WITH YOU IN A MOMENT AND TELL YOU ABOUT THE SECRET UP HERE THAT IS THE SECRET OF YOU BEING WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO BE. BEING BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED OF HIM. IT’S A REAL IMPORTANT SUBJECT BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO TIE IT ALL TOGETHER HERE IN JUST A MOMENT. NOW FIVE PERCENT OF BUSINESSES CONTINUE TO GROW AND CONTINUE TO PROSPER. FIVE PERCENT OF MINISTERS IN CHURCHES ARE THE ONES THAT IMPACT THEIR COMMUNITY AND END UP HAVING, WHAT WE CALL, MEGA CHURCHES OR LARGE CHURCHES. FIVE PERCENT OF ATHLETES ADVANCE IN COLLEGE AND GO ON TO PLAY FOR, WHETHER IT’S THE NBA OR THE NFL. FIVE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE IN CHURCHES ON AN AVERAGE, NOW WE’RE TALKING RURAL CHURCHES ALL THE WAY UP TO THE LARGER ONES, END UP DOING MOST OF THE WORK, MOST OF THE GIVING AND MOST OF THE PRAYING. SO LET ME ASK YOU THIS QUESTION. I WANT TO TALK TO YOU FOR JUST A MOMENT. ARE YOU DESTINED TO BE AVERAGE? ARE YOU JUST ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, YOU’RE JUST GOING TO BE AVERAGE IN LIFE? ARE YOU A PERSON THAT JUST DOESN’T HAVE THE GOOD LUCK GENES? YOU KNOW. THE GENES OF YOUR FAMILY JUST DIDN’T PAN OUT RIGHT AND YOU JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE SOME BAD GENES AND THAT’S WHY YOU MAKE BAD DECISIONS ALL THE TIME? THAT’S WHAT SOME PEOPLE THINK. ARE YOU BORN WITH MORE MOTIVATION OR LESS MOTIVATION? IS THAT THE REASON WHY YOU’RE NOT BEING ABLE TO DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO? BECAUSE YOU’RE JUST NOT MOTIVATED? ALRIGHT. IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU HAVE BAD GENES, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE JUST BORN WITHOUT MOTIVATION, IF YOU’RE BELIEVING THAT YOU’RE DESTINED TO BE AVERAGE I HAVE SOMETHING THAT’S GOING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE. NOW THINK WITH ME FOR JUST A MOMENT. I ASKED YOU A QUESTION A MOMENT AGO. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ANDREW? WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BARTHOLOMEW? WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THOMAS? WHAT EVER HAPPENED… I MEAN I COULD JUST GO AHEAD AND NAME THEM HERE. SIMON THE CANAANITE. YOU HAVE PHILLIP. YOU HAD JUSTUS. THESE MEN ARE DISCIPLES OF JESUS. THEY ARE PART OF THE ORIGINAL 12. WHY DO WE KEEP HEARING ABOUT PETER, JAMES AND JOHN BUT WE NEVER HEAR ABOUT THESE OTHER MEN? PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY NEVER WROTE A BOOK IN THE BIBLE. PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT IN THE INNER CIRCLE OF JESUS. HOWEVER, ALL OF THEM ENDED UP DYING MARTYRS. EVERYONE OF THEM. THE ONLY PERSON WHO DID NOT DIE A MARTYR, THAT DIED A NATURAL CAUSE OF A DISCIPLE OF JESUS WAS JOHN THE APOSTLE WHO WROTE SAINT JOHNS GOSPEL, 1ST, 2ND, AND 3RD JOHN AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION. HE DIED ABOUT, ABOUT AGE 100 AFTER HE CAME OFF THE ISLE OF PATMOS WITH THE BOOK OF REVELATION. HE DIED SOMEWHERE AROUND 100 YEARS OF AGE. WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE? WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE? OKAY. WHY WERE ONE MOMENT THESE DISCIPLES HIDING WHEN JESUS WAS RESURRECTED? AFRAID THAT SOMEONE WAS GOING TO KILL THEM OR TAKE THEIR LIFE? AND WHEN JESUS IS RAISED FROM THE DEAD THEY ARE IN A HOUSE. ALL THE DOORS AND WINDOWS ARE SHUT. WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE THAT LATER THEY WOULD DIE MARTYRS? AND THE ANSWER IS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED ON THIS HILL. NOW THERE IS A BELIEF THERE IS ON THIS HILL AN AREA OF A ROOM CALLED AN UPPER ROOM. NOW WE KNOW THAT THE UPPER ROOM IS WHERE THE DISCIPLES WERE MEETING IN ACTS CHAPTER 1 RIGHT BEFORE THE DAY OF PENTECOST ARRIVED. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THAT THE DAY OF PENTECOST, WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME, HAPPENED AT A ROOM IN THE TEMPLE WHERE ALL OF THE MEN HAD BEEN GATHERED TOGETHER. HOWEVER, IN THE BUSINESS MEETING IN ACTS CHAPTER 1 THERE WAS MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS AND OTHER WOMEN THAT WERE PRESENT ALONG WITH THE MEN. SO WE ASSUME THAT THE 120 WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST. SO LET ME READ TO YOU THE VERSE. WHEN THE DAY OF PENTECOST WAS FULLY COME, THEY WERE ALL IN ONE PLACE WITH ONE ACCORD. AND SUDDENLY THERE CAME A SOUND FROM HEAVEN LIKE AS OF A RUSHING MIGHTY WIND, AND IT FILLED ALL THE HOUSE WHERE THEY WERE SEATED. THERE APPEARED UNTO THEM CLOVEN TONGUES LIKE AS OF FIRE, AND IT SAT UPON EACH OF THEM. AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND BEGAN TO SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE. NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SIMON PETER DENIED THE LORD THREE TIMES. SIMON PETER WAS AFRAID FOR HIS OWN LIFE. AND HOWEVER, HERE’S WHAT’S INTERESTING. SIMON PETER EVENTUALLY WAS BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST AND WAS THE PREACHER THAT STOOD UP IN ACTS CHAPTER 2 TO PREACH THE GOSPEL MESSAGE OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS AND IT WAS PETER WHO SAW 3000 CONVERTED AND BAPTIZED THEM IN WATER, PROBABLY AT A LARGE MIKVAH OR MAYBE AT THE POOL OF SILOAM WHICH IS DOWN HERE IN THE VALLEY. BAPTIZED 3000 CONVERTS ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST. THE REASON I’M SHARING THIS WITH YOU IS I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THAT THE THING THAT CHANGED THEM WAS WHAT HAPPENED ON THIS MOUNTAIN CENTURIES AGO. IT WAS THE INFILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. NOW IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THE INFILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TOUCHED THESE DISCIPLES THEN YOU HAVEN’T READ HISTORY. BECAUSE ACCORDING TO FOX’S BOOK OF MARTYRS PHILLIP WENT TO UPPER ASIA AND ENDED UP BEING SCOURGED AND CRUCIFIED. MATTHIAS WAS STONED IN JERUSALEM AND LATER BEHEADED. ANDREW WENT TO ODESSA, PREACHED THE GOSPEL AND WAS LATER CRUCIFIED. BARTHOLOMEW, WHO TRANSLATED MATTHEW’S GOSPEL IN INDIA, WAS BEATEN IN INDIA AND CRUCIFIED. THOMAS, WHO ALSO WENT TO INDIA, PERFORMED MIRACLES BUT WAS THRUST THROUGH WITH A SPEAR IN INDIA. THE CHRISTIANS IN INDIA TODAY CAN SHOW YOU WHERE THAT HAPPENED. PETER, THE APOSTLE PETER, ENDED UP GOING TO ROME AND ACCORDING TO EARLY STATEMENTS AND EARLY HISTORY HE WAS CRUCIFIED UPSIDE DOWN BECAUSE HE DID NOT FEEL WORTHY TO BE CRUCIFIED THE WAY THAT THE LORD WAS. NOW MY POINT IS THAT IT WAS THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT OR THE INFILLING OF THE SPIRIT THAT CHANGED THESE INDIVIDUALS. NOW LET ME GIVE YOU A STORY OF MY OWN THAT I HAVE NOT TALKED ABOUT OFTEN. I DID NOT LIKE GOING TO SCHOOL. IT DIDN’T MATTER WHAT KIND OF SCHOOL IT WAS. I JUST DIDN’T LIKE SCHOOL. I DIDN’T LIKE STUDY. I LOVED SPORTS. I LOVED ART. I COULD MAKE STRAIGHT A’S IN ANYTHING THAT WAS CREATIVE. BUT EVERYTHING ELSE I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT. NOW THERE’S A LOT OF KIDS WATCHING ME THAT YOUR PARENTS HAVE SAID, YOU’VE GOT TO DO BETTER IN SCHOOL. YOU’VE GOT TO GET YOUR GRADES UP. HONESTLY, I DIDN’T CARE. BUT THEN WHEN GOD BAPTIZED ME IN THE HOLY SPIRIT AND CALLED ME TO PREACH, I WAS 16 YEARS OF AGE WHEN HE CALLED ME INTO THE MINISTRY, AND I BEGAN TO STUDY THE BIBLE AND I BEGAN TO PRAY A LOT, ESPECIALLY AFTER SCHOOL OR IN THE EVENINGS WITH A GROUP OF YOUNG MEN FROM MY DADS CHURCH. SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY WHEN, I COULD ALMOST SAY NEUROLOGICALLY, WHEN GOD BEGAN TO CALL ME INTO THE MINISTRY AND I BEGAN TO SPEND TIME IN PRAYER. MY GRADES WENT UP. I BEGAN TO GET INTERESTED IN LEARNING. I FOUND OUT THAT WHEN I STUDIED THE BIBLE AND LEARNED THINGS THAT I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE I WANTED TO LEARN MORE AND IT HELPED ME IN MY SECULAR STUDIES OF ENGLISH AND ALL THE OTHER, GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY AND ALL THE OTHER CLASSES THAT WE WERE TAKING. NOW PARENTS LISTEN TO ME VERY CAREFULLY. WHEN YOU ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND I’M SO GLAD THAT WE HAVE WARRIOR-FEST THREE TIMES A YEAR AT OMEGA CENTER INTERNATIONAL IN CLEVELAND, TENNESSEE AND WE HAVE FOUR TO FIVE THOUSAND YOUNG PEOPLE WHO SHOW UP. BECAUSE THE PARENTS WILL TELL ME, THEY ARE DOING BETTER. THEIR GRADES HAVE GONE UP ONCE THEY’RE SAVED AND FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE HOLY SPIRIT EXPANDS THE SOUL AND THE SPIRIT. IT EXPANDS THE MIND. HE. IT’S NOT AN IT. HE. BUT THE POWER OF GOD, AND WHEN I SAY IT I’M SPEAKING OF THE POWER OF GOD. THE MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER OF GOD, WHAT THIS DOES IS IT DOES SOMETHING NEUROLOGICALLY, AND I’M BEING SERIOUS HERE. AND EVEN PROFESSORS, PROFESSOR, I BELIEVE HIS NAME IS NEWBERG; I’VE TAKEN SOME OF HIS COURSES ON CD ABOUT RELIGION AND THE HUMAN BRAIN WHICH ARE FABULOUS. BUT HE TALKS ABOUT HOW THAT THE HUMAN BRAIN IS IMPACTED BY FAITH AND BY BELIEF, BY SCRIPTURE, BY PRAYER AND IT LITERALLY TRANSFORMS YOU. SO IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE THAT YOU’VE JUST NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL YOU FEEL LIKE IN LIFE NOT ONLY DO YOU NEED A COVENANT RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST TO FIND GOD’S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE. BUT THROUGH THAT COVENANT RELATIONSHIP YOU NEED TO BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD’S GIFT FOR YOU THAT ENDUES YOU WITH POWER THAT GIVES YOU THE ABILITY TO WITNESS. YOU KNOW, I WAS VERY SHY BUT WHEN GOD CALLED ME TO PREACH AND BAPTIZED ME IN THE HOLY SPIRIT A BOLDNESS CAME ON ME. THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL GIVE YOU BOLDNESS. THE HOLY SPIRIT, ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF JUDE, WILL BUILD YOUR FAITH. THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL HELP YOU PRAY FOR THINGS WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO PRAY. AND WHAT HAPPENS IS HE BEGINS TO REFOCUS YOUR LIFE AND GIVES YOU THE ABILITY OR THE GIFTS OR THE GIFTING. WHETHER ITS, IT CAN BE THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT IN 1ST CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 12:7-10. OR IT CAN ALSO BE GIFTS IN THE AREA OF ADMINISTRATION. GIFTS OF, JUST GIFTS IN GENERAL AND GIVES YOU THE ABILITY TO LEARN BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT EXPANDS YOUR ABILITY AND YOU’RE THINKING. SO HERE’S WHAT I FEEL LED TO TELL YOU. FOR SOME OF YOU THAT HAVE DIFFICULTIES IN LEARNING NEW THINGS. SOME OF YOU KIDS THAT ARE IN COLLEGE. SOME OF YOU KIDS THAT ARE IN SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL. I WANT YOU TO BEGIN TO SPEND MORE TIME IN PRAYER. TAKE 15 MINUTES, START IT OFF THAT WAY, OF INTENT PRAYER TO GOD EVERY MORNING OR IN THE EVENING. START YOUR DAY OFF THAT WAY. SOMETHING HAPPENS NATURALLY AND SPIRITUALLY THROUGH THE POWER OF PRAYER. RESEARCHERS HAVE PROVEN THIS. SCIENTISTS AND EVEN DOCTORS THAT ARE CHRISTIANS THAT HAVE STUDIED THIS HAVE PROVEN THAT PRAYER AND PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT WHICH IS PRAYING IN THE PRAYER LANGUAGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. AND GOD DOESN’T, DON’T GET ME WRONG. GOD DOESN’T DO THIS TO MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL. BUT YOU AUTOMATICALLY BEGIN TO SUCCEED IN WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU BEGIN TO FOLLOW THE LORD THROUGH FASTING, PRAYER AND STUDY OF THE WORD. I’M TELLING YOU, MY GRADES WENT FROM VERY BAD TO B’S AND SOMETIMES A’S, LOW B’S, IN HIGH SCHOOL WHEN I BEGAN TO SPEND MORE TIME IN PRAYER AND STUDY THE BIBLE. THE WORD OF GOD QUICKENS YOU AND BRINGS LIFE INTO YOUR SPIRIT AND LIFE INTO YOUR MIND, LIFE INTO YOUR PHYSICAL BODY. SO IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE KEY IS IN BEING SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT YOU PUT YOUR HANDS TO, WHAT YOU DO YOUR THINKING TO, AND THE ASSIGNMENTS THAT GOD HAS YOU. IT IS OBEYING THE LORD AND IT IS THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. SO I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TODAY AS I STAND HERE IN MOUNT ZION. IT’S THE ROOF OF A BEAUTIFUL HOTEL OVERLOOKING BEHIND ME THE CITY OF JERUSALEM. I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE ABILITY THROUGH HIS WORD AND THROUGH HIS SPIRIT TO NOT ONLY FOLLOW HIM BUT TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN EVERYTHING THAT YOU PUT YOUR HANDS TO. HE IS YOUR HELPER. WELL, I WANT YOU TO KEEP WATCHING. I HAVE A NEW RESOURCE OFFER AND I’VE GOT TO TELL YOU SOME THINGS THAT ARE COMING UP. SO STAY TUNED TO THE MANNA-FEST TELECAST. MUSIC PERRY: WE HAVE BEEN ADVERTISING OUR OLD TESTAMENT COMMENTARY. THE 500,000 WORD COMMENTARY THAT’S PART OF A KING JAMES BIBLE THAT NOW THOUSANDS OF YOU HAVE. BECAUSE OF POPULAR DEMAND MANY PEOPLE HAVE SAID, WELL YOU CONTINUE TO OFFER IT. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO GET IT. I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO BUT I WANT TO BE ABLE TO. SO WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO OFFER THE PERRY STONE HEBRAIC PROPHETIC OLD TESTAMENT COMMENTARY. THAT’S RIGHT. THIS IS FULL OF EXPLAINING BIBLE PROPHECY. FROM THE BOOK OF DANIEL. FROM THE BOOK OF ISAIAH. FROM THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH. FROM THE BOOK OF ZECHARIAH. IT IS FILLED WITH HEBRAIC NOTES AND RESEARCH. IT’S HEBREW WORD STUDIES. IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL WE DO SPECIAL WORD STUDIES TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. IN ISAIAH IN-DEPTH, THAT’S RIGHT. IN DEPTH, MEANING AT THE END OF THE BOOK OF ISAIAH WE HAVE AN IN-DEPTH TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING SPECIAL, A SPECIAL PASSAGE OR VERSE IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH. IT SAYS THE DEAD SEA, THE POSSIBLE LOCATION OF THE FUTURE LAKE OF FIRE. I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU FROM THE BOOK OF ISAIAH SOME VERY STRANGE PREDICTIONS AND PROPHECIES AND I’M GOING TO RELATE THEM TO THE LOWEST SPOT ON EARTH WHICH IS THE DEAD SEA. MANY OF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD THAT BUT YOU’RE GOING TO GET IT BY READING THE COMMENTARY THAT I HAVE WRITTEN IN THIS OLD TESTAMENT COMMENTARY. NOW IT’S A 1611 KING JAMES BIBLE WITH 500,000 WORD COMMENTARY AND I’M PROUD TO SAY PRINTED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. YOU CAN CALL 1-888-21BREAD AND ORDER THAT WAY OR YOU CAN ORDER ONLINE AT PERRYSTONE.ORG OR SEND A DONATION OF $160 OR MORE BECAUSE WE DO NEED YOUR HELP TO STAY ON TELEVISION, TO KEEP THE MANNA-FEST PROGRAM GOING, AND WRITE PERRY STONE PO BOX 3595 CLEVELAND, TENNESSEE 37320. IT COMES IN A BEAUTIFUL BOX. BUT MOST OF ALL YOU’RE GOING TO GLEAN FROM INFORMATION THAT IT TOOK ME YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF HOURS TO PUT TOGETHER AND I WANT TO MAKE IT AVAILABLE TO YOU. THIS IS MY LEGACY THAT IF THE LORD SHOULD COME OR I SHOULD GO TO HEAVEN I WANT TO LEAVE WITH YOU. THE OLD TESTAMENT AND NEW TESTAMENT COMMENTARY. THIS IS THE OLD TESTAMENT COMMENTARY MADE AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW. SO PLEASE ORDER IT TODAY. LIMITED SUPPLIES. NOT AVAILABLE IN ANY BOOKSTORE ANYWHERE. GOD BLESS YOU. PERRY: YOU KNOW, THE BOOK OF DANIEL IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE AND POWERFUL BOOKS OF THE ENTIRE 66 BOOKS OF THE BIBLE AND OUR COMMENTARY FROM DANIEL WILL GO INTO HISTORY. IT WILL GO INTO THE SYMBOLISM. IT WILL GO INTO THE HEBRAIC PROPHETIC SIDE OF THE ENTIRE BOOK OF DANIEL. SO WHEN YOU GET THIS OLD TESTAMENT PAY CAREFUL ATTENTION TO ALL OF THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS BECAUSE ONE THIRD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT HAS NOT YET COME TO PASS. ISN’T THAT AMAZING? GODS WORD HAS ALWAYS AMAZED ME, AND SPEAKING OF GODS WORD THERE’S TWO PLACES THAT WE’RE COMING TO. WE’RE GOING TO BE COMING TO HICKORY, NORTH CAROLINA AND THAT’S GOING TO BE OCTOBER 25 AND 26 AT THE CONVENTION CENTER IN HICKORY. THEN ON THE 27TH WE’RE GOING TO GO OVER TO NEWTON, NORTH CAROLINA TO CHRIST ALIVE CHURCH ALL DAY SUNDAY. THEN PAY ATTENTION TO THIS FOLKS FROM WEST VIRGINIA. IN SOMERSVILLE, WEST VIRGINIA OR SOMERVILLE, WEST VIRGINIA. NEW LIFE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY, THE GYMNASIUM. OCTOBER 8TH, 9TH AND 10TH AND THAT WILL BE OUR LAST REVIVAL IN THE UNITED STATES FOR THE YEAR AS WE ARE THEN GOING TO ISRAEL WHERE WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING OUR TELEVISION TAPING AND WE ALWAYS WANT OUR PARTNERS AND FRIENDS TO PRAY FOR REALLY GOOD WEATHER. NORMALLY IN THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER WE GO BACK TO BACK. WE STAY OVER THERE ABOUT 20 DAYS AND THAT’S WHERE A LOT OF THE MANNA-FEST PROGRAMS THAT YOU SEE ARE TAPED WHILE WE’RE THERE AND WE ARE ASKING THE LORD TO GIVE US GOOD WEATHER. WE USUALLY HAVE GREAT WEATHER. SOMETIMES IT WILL RAIN LATE AT NIGHT OR EARLY IN THE MORNING. BUT YOU CAN’T TAPE OUTDOORS IF IT’S RAINING SO PLEASE PRAY FOR US THAT THE WEATHER WILL BE GREAT FOR THE MANNA-FEST TAPING. WE KNOW THAT ACROSS THE UNITED STATES ONE OF THE THINGS THAT GIVES THE PROGRAM THE VERY HIGH RATINGS ON ALL NETWORKS THAT WE HAVE IS THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE FROM ISLAMIC NATIONS THAT THEY LOVE TO SEE THE MIDDLE EAST AND THAT PART OF THE WORLD WHERE THEY MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO TRAVEL IN THEIR LIFETIME. JEWISH PEOPLE FROM ACROSS THE WORLD WATCH IT BECAUSE, OF COURSE, THAT’S COMING FROM ISRAEL. A LOT OF THE PROGRAMS COME FROM THERE. THEN WE HAVE, OF COURSE, THE CHRISTIAN FOLKS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES WHO HAVE TRAVELED TO THE HOLY LAND OR MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO TRAVEL. SO WE REALLY ENJOY BRINGING NEW TELECASTS FROM THERE. NOW SOMETIMES WE’LL DO PROGRAMS THAT ARE TAPED FROM DIFFERENT CONFERENCES THAT WE HAVE. BUT NONETHELESS WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT MANNA-FEST IS REACHING THE ENTIRE WORLD AND THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE BEING SAVED LITERALLY EVERY WEEK FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD. AND YOU KNOW, THE GREATEST THING ABOUT THAT IS JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 24:14 THAT THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM WOULD BE PREACHED AS A WITNESS UNTO ALL NATIONS AND THEN THE END WOULD COME. THEN IN VERSE 15 HE BEGINS TO TALK ABOUT THE TRIBULATION PERIOD. SO I BELIEVE THE END COMING WITH THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL IS THE END OF THE CHURCH AGE. THE DISPENSATION OF THE GRACE OF GOD AS IT’S CALLED. THEN THAT HAPPENS WHEN THE COMING OF THE LORD TAKES PLACE. ALL OF THE ATTENTION IS FOCUSED ON THE TIME OF GREAT TRIBULATION THAT IS MENTIONED BOTH IN, OF COURSE DANIEL, THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION AS WELL. SO WE DO WANT TO SAY TO YOU THAT IF YOU’VE NEVER ACCEPTED THE LORD JESUS AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR; NOW WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT JOINING THE CHURCH. WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT BECOMING RELIGIOUS. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT AN ACTUAL EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS CHRIST WHERE HE ACTUALLY CHANGES YOUR HEART AND YOUR SPIRIT BECOMES PURCHASED BACK BY JESUS CHRIST AND YOU BECOME GOD’S AND HE IS YOUR FATHER. WE’RE ASKING YOU TO ACCEPT CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR BY ASKING HIM TO COME INTO YOUR HEART, FORGIVING YOU OF YOUR SINS AND BECOMING THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE. AND I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW I KNOW THAT CHRISTIANITY IS REAL, AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT RELIGION, I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT CATHEDRALS. I’M TALKING ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE. IT’S BECAUSE THE CHANGES THAT I HAVE SEEN THE LORD MAKE IN PEOPLE’S LIVES THAT ARE SO RADICAL THEY COULD NEVER DO IT ON THEIR OWN. THE OTHER THING IS THE POWER OF THE NAME OF JESUS. THAT NAME HAS AUTHORITY ON ANY NATION OF THE EARTH. AND NUMBER THREE HAS TO BE THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH THE EVIDENCE OF PRAYING IN THE PRAYER LANGUAGE BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO EDUCATION PRAYING IN SIX AND EIGHT KNOWN LANGUAGES BECAUSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. BOTTOM LINE. GOD IS REAL. SERVE HIM. I’LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK ON MANNA-FEST. MUSIC

  • Thanks, for that "Mind Blowing" message also for sharing video.

  • A great purpose, for the kingdom comes with much preparation.

  • Amen I was not a Good Student For many years in school !! But When I Started Studying Scripture and praying I was able to go to technical school and take up my Calling in Lay Ministry these past 4 years and All Glory To God By His Grace get married and have my Beloved Wife & Children !!

  • At about 16:58 minutes into the video is where you began to actually preach a positive, helpful, and motivational message; nothing you said before that time encouraged me whatsoever, in fact, it made me feel sad. For a man of your age Perry, you can be quite, well, ignorant to say the least.
    Also, I'm sure the disciples who gave their lives to take the gospel to other parts of the world and died for it and their personal testimony, would be greatly offended at the assertion that they were not as important or fruitful as Peter, James, and John, in your opinion. I was also greatly offended at this first part of your video – you should be ashamed of yourself. Who do you think you are? You're on even ground with everyone in the world Perry Stone – the only difference is in the story that has been written for your soul and that you are living out today; we're all living out the human life and story we were born to experience.
    This human experience is like a Summer Camp for the Soul that is within this Human Body. God wanted to give us "shore leave" so-to-speak, and before the Fall through Sin, this would have been a wonderful thing, however, the entrance of Sin into the World and the Human Flesh, changed the narrative. Picture a child going to Summer Camp, or Day Camp while their parents are at work; that's where we are right now, with all types of activities and experiences for a child to navigate towards or be drawn to. Our Parent is God, and time for Him is very different than for us – so our perceptions differ. Summer Camp is for the expected Lifespan of a Human, however, since each narrative, or part in this great Novel for a Human is different, some of us leave a little, or a lot, sooner than others.

  • This message is so very true. I am a retired teacher and there were days when I was not prepared to teach the class that day. I would pray that the right words would come and that the lesson would be covered. Those were the best classes I ever taught. God was with me and it was God who was teaching, not me. Praise to you Lord! I will always follow you. Thank you Perry Stone.

  • I’m Amazed ! I how much I have learned ! Learning something everyday ! God Bless You ! Perry ! I’m

  • Why is success defined by whether or not one becomes a leader? So, all of those who serve in those crucial supporting and helping roles are "less than" within the Body of Christ and not living out God's purpose for their lives? Besides, most churches teach WOMEN NOT to lead (in the church, not just at home). Does that mean women can't be "successful" teaching/mentoring children and other women, providing encouragement/support, doing administrative work in the church, etc.? I'm not trying to knock this video because I think it has some good points, but the way "success" and "purpose" is being defined is very narrow.

  • The difference is support. By money usually. All kids can succeed when they have parental support. What about the poororabused. God restores no argument there . but it takes time. God also has His timing. You need to do more research on the why's of things before you make claims. You are wrong on many counts here. Please do research on sociology and psychology this knowledge will fill in many gaps in your theology. The bible is our foundation but it doesn't teach a doctor how to perform brain surgery. Why would a christian need brain surgery ask Him.

  • There was no disciple named “James.” The disciple misnamed “James” by Roman translators was actually known as Ya’akov (Hebrew), Iacob (Greek, unlikely to have ever been actually used) or Jacob. “Christians” think this doesn’t matter, but it does. In Hebrew (especially), names have important meaning, and tell us about one’s character. Ya’akov means heel catcher, supplanter, that is, one who holds back.

    Even Perry’s last name, Stone, gives His ministry special meaning, for it is similar to the disciple “Peter’s” name, “Cephas” (Hebrew kay-fas)(Petros in Greek). In Matthew 16:18, this name was used by Yeshua (Jesus) to contrast his need for humility because he was not the (larger) rock (petra in Greek), which is the ekklesia (this is not “church,” another misnomer), then compared to Him, The Rock (tsur in Hebrew), which is a cliff or massive boulder. Thus, Perry “Stone” is a small rock, part of the ekklesia, which is adjoined to The Rock.

    Thank you for your teachings and passion Perry! Indeed, a gift from the Spirit for the obedient.

  • Thank you for a great teaching. I find this encouraging and motivating.

I found all of them intoxicated; I found none of them thirsty. And My soul became afflicted for the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do not have sight; for empty they came into the world , and empty too they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are intoxicated. When they shake off their wine , then they will repent. PSALMS 10:3

  • I've about had it, you've eaten your last bean bitches. Sorry had to say that lol. LORD knows I love Perry. But that was funny.

  • What about the SUCCESSFUL people in India who do not read the BIBLE or PRAY?

  • I have a question that I’m wandering and want to ask you and a couple people I watch daily bc I was reading my Bible. I’ve always been thinking we go before the tribulation and the earth and people suffer for 7 years and then he comes back and takes judgment upon the earth. Well 2 Thessalonians is making me wonder.. do you think this means we all go through the 7 years of tribulation and then he comes and rescues us and brings judgment on those who don’t. Meaning there’s only one 2nd coming not the rapture then the 2nd coming? I have been reading my Bible and have been a Christian my whole life and don’t want to go off what other people say or think only what Jesus says but I never looked at 2 Thessalonians the way I am now as an adult and really waiting on Jesus and watching the world around me on how it’s all happening before our eyes. I want to know a proof of scripture anyone has read that we will be caught up and taken to heaven with Jesus before the tribulation.. I’m just so curious and want more knowledge and I don’t know Hebrew so I can’t read the original bible but I’m just very much interested in others thoughts that believe in Jesus and is ready for his return. I love you all and bless you all.

  • No, Peter didn't baptize the 3,000 with water……
    Cornelius, and family, by hearing the word, got Baptized with the holy spirit right there and then, and spoke in tongues, WITHOUT WATER…..
    Christ even explains it in the gospel of JOHN…….why can't you preachers teach WHAT IS WRITTEN, instead of adding what you think it should be, you don't need WATER to receive the holy spirit, I've seen it.
    At least you believe in tongues, and the manifestations of the holy spirit……Believe and Confess Romans 10:9,10 to get saved…..not some sinner prayer.

  • Interesting that Perry found out about that nugget of info about the dead sea, because it does seem like there is an underground volcanic chamber there. There is a dormant volcano by the name of Es Safa, that is in southern Syria, and has volcanic chambers littered all around the area, with Israel surrounded by these chambers. The lake of fire could very well be a massive chamber of lava under neath the middle east, and Israel seems to be in the cross hairs, so to speak, if this volcano awakens. Kind of confirms that Babylon the Great is ruling from Israel if Es Safa ever awakens.

  • I need prayer for my husband to be healed of addictions of hard drugs and other women. Thank you
