CLARICE FLUITT. BE RIGHT BACK. [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: DR.

PROPHETESS WITH LASER-LIKE ACCURACY. REPORTS OF AMAZING
MIRACLES AND HEALINGS OCCUR IN HER MEETINGS. WELCOME TO “WISDOM TO
WIN” WITH DR. CLARICE. CF: WELL, HELLO AGAIN. I AM SO EXCITED. I HAVE A WORD FOR YOU
TODAY THAT WILL NOT ONLY INFORM, BUT TRANSFORM. THIS IS AN AMAZING
TIME, AN AMAZING SEASON. YOU KNOW, WE’VE
TALKED ABOUT TESTIMONIES. I LOVE TO TELL STORIES
ABOUT THINGS THAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED. IT’S NOT
SOMETHING THAT, YOU KNOW, YOU READ, AND SOMETHING
PEOPLE TELL ABOUT THINGS THAT HAPPEN. BUT IT’S BASED ON
THE INFALLIBLE, INERRANT, AND
AWESOME WORD OF GOD. SO TODAY I JUST WANT
TO TAKE YOU ON A LITTLE JOURNEY. AND I DO BELIEVE THAT THIS
IS GOING TO ENCOURAGE YOU. BUT BEFORE I
TELL THE STORY, LET ME READ A SCRIPTURE
FOR YOU THAT JUST TRANSFORMED MY LIFE. AND THE SCRIPTURE
IS FROM ROMANS, CHAPTER 4, AND VERSE 5. AND THIS IS WHAT
THE WRITER SAYS. “BUT TO HIM WHO
DOES NOT WORK,” AHH! WATCH THIS. “BUT THE ONE WHO BELIEVES
ON HIM WHO JUSTIFIES THE UNGODLY, HIS FAITH
IS ACCOUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” NOW RIGHTEOUSNESS SIMPLE
MEANS RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD. “JUST AS DAVID ALSO
DESCRIBES THE BLESSEDNESS OF THE MAN TO WHOM GOD
IMPUTES RIGHTEOUSNESS APART FROM WORKS.” WE THINK WE’VE GOT TO WORK
SO HARD TO GET SOMETHING. BUT THE SCRIPTURE, THE
WORD OF GOD SAYS ONLY BELIEVE. ONLY BELIEVE. AND I’M GOING TO TELL YOU
AN AMAZING STORY THAT I, PERSONALLY, EXPERIENCED
THAT REALLY TAUGHT ME WHAT ONLY BELIEVE MEANS. BECAUSE SOMETIMES WHEN
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WISDOM TO WIN, I AM CONVINCED
THAT THE FEAR OF GOD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM. AND, AGAIN, YOU KNOW, WHAT
YOU FEAR WILL COME UPON YOU. SO IF YOU FEAR GOD,
HE’LL COME UPON YOU. ISN’T THAT EXCITING? AND JUST SAY, “LORD, I
DELIGHT TO DO THY WILL. AND TO DO IT IS
NOT GRIEVOUS TO ME.” SO HERE’S THE STORY. I WAS IN SINGAPORE DOING
A SERIES OF MEETINGS. AND THE PASTOR
THERE, HE WAS A BISHOP, BISHOP RODERICK TAY. HE WAS COMING INTO
THE PHILIPPINES, AND HE ASKED ME IF I WOULD
LEAD A WORSHIP SERVICE THERE, THAT THERE WOULD BE
THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AT THIS
WONDERFUL MEETING. AND IT WAS A
HEALING MEETING. AND HE WAS JUST ALL
EXCITED ABOUT IT. AND I SAID, “YES. I’D BE SO HONORED TO GO.” AND SO WE WERE MAKING
ARRANGEMENTS TO GO FROM SINGAPORE INTO
THE PHILIPPINES. AND WHILE WE
WERE DOING THAT, THIS PARTICULAR BISHOP, IT
WAS ON HIS HEART THAT HE HAD HEARD THAT THERE WAS A
LADY NAMED CORA WHO WAS A FILIPINO. AND SHE HAD – LET’S
SEE, HOW DO WE SAY THIS POLITELY? SHE HAD A GROUP OF
LADIES OF THE EVENING, ALL BEAUTIFUL FILIPINO
WOMEN THAT HAD LEFT THE PHILIPPINES AND HAD
COME INTO HONG KONG. AND THERE WAS A
PLACE CALLED CLUB BRAVO. AND AT CLUB BRAVO, IT WAS
A PLACE THAT YOUNG WOMEN CAME TO. AND THE MONEY THAT
THEY MADE THERE, THEY WERE ABLE TO TAKE
CARE OF MANY FAMILIES BACK IN THE PHILIPPINES. AT THAT TIME THEY WERE
JUST POVERTY STRICKEN. SO BEFORE YOU JUMP UP AND
MAKE ANY KIND OF DECISION ABOUT THIS STORY, HOLD ON,
BECAUSE IT’S ALL ABOUT THE GOODNESS OF GOD. IT’S ABOUT GOD TAKING
THINGS THAT ARE NOT TO BECOME THE
THINGS THAT ARE, AND HOW GOD DELIVERED ME
FROM A VERY DEEPLY ROOTED RELIGIOUS SPIRIT. YOU KNOW, I HAD BEEN
IN CHURCH ALL MY LIFE, AND JUST, IF
ANYBODY HAD A SPIRIT OF SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS, I
HAD A NASTY THING OF SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS. YOU KNOW, I DON’T
SMOKE, AND I DON’T CHEW, AND I DON’T RUN WITH
THE FOLKS THAT DO. IT’S WAS ALL ABOUT WORKS. THAT’S WHY I READ THAT
SCRIPTURE TO YOU THAT GOD SAYS IF YOU’LL JUST
BELIEVE BY FAITH, IF YOU’LL JUST BELIEVE
THAT GOD HAS PAID THE PRICE, INCREDIBLE AND
WONDERFUL THINGS BEGIN TO HAPPEN WHEN GOD
MIXES WITH MAN. SO, HERE WE WERE, AND I
WAS MAKING MY PLANS TO BE ABLE TO GO, THAT THE WORD
CAME THAT BISHOP TAY HAD GONE INTO HONG KONG TO
VISIT WITH THE MADAM THAT WAS THERE AT CLUB BRAVO. AND HER NAME WAS CORA. AND HE INVITED CORA TO
COME TO THIS GREAT HEALING MEETING. AND OF COURSE, EVERYBODY
WAS UPSET THAT YOU WOULD GO TO SEE SOMEONE LIKE
THAT AND INVITE THEM TO A CHRISTIAN MEETING. I MEAN, THERE WERE A LOT
OF ATTITUDES THAT WERE FLYING AROUND. AND I CANNOT TELL YOU THAT
ONE OF THEM WAS NOT MINE. AND SO, THAT EVENING WHEN
THE MEETING WAS BEGINNING AND YOU HAD THOUSANDS
OF PEOPLE INSIDE, AND THOUSANDS OF
PEOPLE OUTSIDE, AND SUDDENLY THE
SPEAKER SPOKE AND SAID, “WOULD THE LADIES FROM
HONG KONG COME FORWARD?” AND I THOUGHT,
“OH MY GOODNESS.” AND ABOUT EIGHT OR NINE OF
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LITTLE LADIES, THEY JUST CAME UP,
AND THEY HAD LITTLE BITTY SHORT SKIRTS ON
THAT ANYBODY – NO GOOD CHRISTIAN WOULD HAVE
EVER COME OUT LOOKING LIKE THAT. BUT THEY CAME UP, AND THE
MINISTER JUST THREW HIS COAT ON THEM. AND THEY WERE
SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT. AND I THOUGHT – WELL, THAT
CAN’T HAPPEN LIKE THAT. THEY HAVE TO GO
THROUGH THE PROCEDURE. THEY HAVE TO MAKE
THE CONFESSION. THEY HAVE TO SAY I’M A
LOW DOWN DIRTY DOG SINNER. AND THEY HAVE TO
CRY A LITTLE BIT. AND THEY HAVE TO DO THESE
THINGS BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY IT WAS TAUGHT TO ME. YOU CAN’T JUST WALK
INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THE VERY IDEA. AND SO,
THEY’RE LYING THERE, AND HE WALKS BACK. AND IN THE
MIDST OF MINISTRY, HE SAYS, “RECEIVE JESUS
CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR.” AND I SAID, “HE
CAN’T DO THAT. THEY HAVE TO BE
WILLING TO RECEIVE. HE CAN’T JUST
IMPART SALVATION. WHOEVER HEARD OF SUCH
A RIDICULOUS THING?” BUT THEY’RE LYING THERE
ON THE FLOOR SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT, AND HE SAYS, “NOW
RECEIVE THE MIGHTY BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.” WHAT? THAT’S AMAZING. WHY WOULD YOU
SAY SUCH A THING? THAT’S NOT WHAT
I’VE BEEN TAUGHT. AND, I MEAN, I’M ON –
I’M SUPPOSED TO BE LEADING WORSHIP AT THIS
INCREDIBLE MEETING. AND THERE I AM MAKING
JUDGMENTS OF THE MAN THAT IS SPEAKING
THE WORD OF GOD. IT WAS JUST AN
INCREDIBLE TIME. AND SO [LAUGHS] WHEN HE
SAID THAT – RECEIVE THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
– AND THEY ALL BEGAN TO SPEAK IN TONGUES. I MEAN, THEY
WERE – I THOUGHT, THAT CAN’T HAPPEN. THAT’S NOT THE WAY
THAT THAT HAPPENS. AND THEN HE SAYS,
“I BIND YOU DEVIL, AND I CAST THE DEVIL
OUT OF ALL OF YOU.” AND THEY’RE
PRAYING I TONGUES. WELL, IT WAS BEYOND ME. I JUST COULD NOT IMAGINE
HOW ANYTHING COULD BE LIKE THAT. I WAS VERY
CRITICAL AND JUDGMENTAL, AND VERY
RELIGIOUS ABOUT IT. WELL, AFTER THE MEETING
IT WAS JUST PEOPLE WERE HEALED AND DELIVERED,
AND WONDERFUL THINGS WERE TAKING PLACE. AND AFTER THE MEETING, WE
ALL WENT BACKSTAGE TO BE ABLE TO MEET ALL OF
THE NAME BRAND PEOPLE, ALL THE WHO’S
WHO IN THE ZOO, AND TALK ABOUT WHAT A
GREAT THING IT WAS. AND WHILE WE WERE
CONGRATULATING EACH OTHER, SUDDENLY, THE DOOR OPENED. AND THERE STOOD MISS CORA. AND HER EYES – SHE HAD
WEPT AND CRIED TILL SHE HAD LONG MASCARA STREAKS
THAT WERE DOWN HER FACE. [LAUGHS] AND SHE PUT
HER HANDS ON HER HIPS. SHE WAS AS CUTE
AS SHE COULD BE. AND SHE LOOKED AT
ALL OF THESE GREAT, WONDERFUL HOLY PEOPLE. AND SHE SAID, “HEY! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO
MAKE A LIVING NOW?” [LAUGHS] GOOD QUESTION. GOOD QUESTION. AND, SUDDENLY, IT
WAS KIND OF LIKE E.F. HUTTON SPEAKS. EVERYBODY, THEY COULDN’T
BELIEVE THAT SHE WAS BACK THERE. THEY HAD ALL KINDS OF
GUARDS AND EVERYTHING WHERE NOBODY COULD GET
PAST UNLESS YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONES TO DO SO. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? THAT LITTLE LADY
MADE IT BACK THERE. AND SHE CHALLENGED
OUR RELIGIOUS SPIRITS. AND BISHOP TAY
CAME UP TO ME, AND HE SAID, [SPEAKING
IN ASIAN ACCENT] “AH, DR, FLUITT. YOU GO TO HONG KONG
AND START CHURCH. AND I’LL SEND
PASTORS AT A LATER DATE.” HE SAYS, “THIS IS
A JOB FOR A LADY.” AND I THOUGHT,
OH MY GOODNESS. I’VE NEVER EVEN
BEEN IN A BAR. I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING. I MEAN, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
OUT OF MY LINE OF UNDERSTANDING. AND ALL OF MY RELIGIOUS
DEMONS WE’RE JUST – I MEAN, THEY HAD
ALREADY BEEN ENRAGED. AND NOW HE’S ASKING ME
TO GO AND SPEND TIME IN A BROTHEL. OH MY GOODNESS. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK? YOU KNOW WHAT? I BELIEVE THAT GOD, HE
WILL LET YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU NEED TO BELIEVE TO
GET YOU WHERE HE’S REALLY TAKING YOU. AND HE WAS TAKING ME TO
ANOTHER DIMENSION OF THE INTENTION OF THE GRACE
AND THE POWER OF GOD. IT IS NOT BY
WORKS, BUT BY FAITH. YOU KNOW, FAITH WITHOUT
WORKS IS A DEAD THING. BUT WHEN WE JUST ARE
WORKING TRYING TO GET WHAT IS A GIFT, WE FRUSTRATE
THE GRACE OF GOD. I DIDN’T KNOW
ALL OF THAT THEN. BUT, I’LL TELL YOU WHAT. I AM GOING TO GET BACK
WITH YOU IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. DON’T YOU DARE
MOVE THAT DIAL. YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE
HOW THIS STORY ENDS. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] CF: HI THERE. WE’RE BACK AGAIN. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE STORY. THE STORY OF CORA. WELL, CORA HAD
ASKED A QUESTION, WHO’S, YOU KNOW, HOW AM
I GOING TO MAKE A LIVING NOW. AND IT SEEMED THAT HER
NEWFOUND FAITH WAS IN CONTRAST WITH HER
CHOSEN PROFESSION. SO THE BISHOP EQUIPPED ME. HE LAID HANDS ON ME, AND
HE SENT ME TO HONG KONG TO START A CHURCH AT A
PLACE CALLED CLUB BRAVO. WELL, WHEN I
GOT THERE I JUST, OH MY GOODNESS, I
WAS JUST SO UNNERVED. I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
OR HOW TO BEHAVE MYSELF. SEE, GOD WANTS TO TAKE YOU
INTO FRESH EXPERIENCES. HE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO
GET STALE OR STAGNANT. HE DOESN’T WANT
YOU TO GET STUCK. HE SAYS, “I WANT TO KEEP
THINGS FRESH AND ALIVE.” AND, BOY, WAS
THIS INCREDIBLE. I HAVE FOUND OUT IN MY
LIFE I NEED A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF CERTAINTY. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU NEED A CERTAIN
AMOUNT OF UNCERTAINTY, TOO. OH MY GOODNESS. THIS WAS THE STRETCH TIME. I WAS THINKING WHEN I WAS
ON THE PLANE FLYING INTO HONG KONG, [SINGING] “IF
THEY COULD SEE ME NOW, THAT LITTLE GANG OF MINE.” [LAUGHS] OH, IT WAS
NOT SOMETHING THAT I WAS ENCOURAGED ABOUT AT ALL. AND SO, THEY COME,
AND THEY BRING THIS BIG STRETCH
LIMOUSINE TO PICK ME UP. THEY HAVE FLOWERS. THEY HAVE GIFTS. THEY’RE SO SWEET. THEY’RE SO KIND. AND I THOUGHT –
YOU KNOW WHAT? I’VE BEEN TO A LOT OF
CHURCHES THAT I DIDN’T GET THIS KIND OF RESPONSE TO. AND, I MEAN,
THEY WERE HONORING. “OH, DR. FLUITT. DA-TA-DAH DA-TA DAH.” SO, THEY TAKE ME TO
THIS BEAUTIFUL HOTEL. THEY HAVE A SUITE FOR ME. AND, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE
GOING TO COME AND TAKE ME TO LUNCH. AND I SAID, “WELL,
THAT’S ALL WONDERFUL. BUT WHAT TIME ARE YOU
GOING TO PICK ME UP FOR TONIGHT’S MEETING?” AND THE GIRL LOOKED AT
ME JUST AS SWEET AND AS HONEST AS SHE COULD BE. SHE SAID, [SPEAKING
IN ASIAN ACCENT] “OH, DR. FLUITT, WE
WORK NIGHTTIME.” AND I THOUGHT, “OH. OH. OH. OH. OH. OH, WHAT AM I
GOING TO SAY?” AND THEY SAID, “WE’LL
BE BACK TO PICK YOU UP TOMORROW AT 2:00
IN THE AFTERNOON.” AND THAT NIGHT WAS THE
MOST ANGUISHED NIGHT I THINK I’VE EVER SPENT. YOU KNOW, I JUST WENT
THROUGH ALL THE THINGS THAT CAUSED ME
TO BE CONCERNED, WHEN REALLY, [LAUGHS]
YOU’D BE ABLE TO THROW ALL OF YOUR CARES OVER UPON
THE LORD BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU. HOW MANY OF YOU REALLY
BELIEVE THAT THE STEPS OF THE RIGHTEOUS ARE
ORDERED BY GOD? I WAS HAVING TO TRY TO
BELIEVE IT WITH ALL OF MY HEART. I WAS BEING STRETCHED INTO
A SITUATION THAT I WAS NOT COMFORTABLE. DID YOU KNOW THAT
THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE LORD, AND
GIVER OF LIFE, THAT HE WILL
LEAD AND GUIDE. HE WILL INSPIRE. HE WILL EMPOWER. AND, [LAUGHS] I
TELL YOU WHAT. HE HAS COME TO
GIVE YOU LIFE, AND THAT YOU MAY HAVE THAT
LIFE OF GOD INSIDE OF YOU. SO, HERE AT 2:00, THEY
COME TO PICK ME UP TO TAKE ME TO A PLACE
CALLED CLUB BRAVO. AND WHEN I GET TO CLUB
BRAVO I DIDN’T KNOW THAT THERE WERE THAT MANY
BOTTLES OF WHISKEY IN THE WORLD. IT WAS AN ENORMOUS ROOM. AND IT WAS
FULL OF MIRRORS. AND IT WAS DARK. AND EVERYBODY WAS SMOKING
LITTLE BROWN CIGARETTES. AND I DIDN’T KNOW
– OH MY GOODNESS, LORD, WHAT ARE
WE GOING TO DO? AND HE SAYS,
“JUST BE AT PEACE. JUST TELL THEM
I LOVE THEM.” AND HE SAYS,
“DON’T TALK ABOUT SIN.” AND I THOUGHT – HUH. THERE’S SO
MUCH OF IT HERE. SURELY WE NEED
TO EXPOSE IT. AND HE SAYS, “TELL
THEM I LOVE THEM. JUST TELL THEM
I LOVE THEM. TELL THEM THAT THERE’S
A PLAN FOR THEIR LIFE.” AND HE SAYS, “TELL THEM
THAT THERE’S A GOD THAT HAS A SON THAT PAID THE
PRICE FOR THEM TO COME TO A PLACE WHERE SICKNESS
AND SORROW ARE NOT THERE. ASK THEM HOW MANY OF THEM
WANT TO EXPERIENCE THAT.” SO, I STOOD UP, AND
MISS CORA CAME UP. AND SHE WAS AS
CUTE AS SHE COULD BE. AND SHE SAID – AND
SEE, THERE WERE MEN, AND THERE WERE WOMEN. THEY WERE THE
PARAMOURS AND THE WOMEN. THEY WERE THERE. ALL OVER THE PLACE. OH MY GOODNESS. AND THEY’RE ALL
SEATED THERE. AND CORA GOT
UP, AND SHE SAYS, [SPEAKING IN ASIAN
ACCENT] “I GO TO MEETING, AND THE SPIRIT OF THE
LIVING GOD CAME UPON ME. I HAVE SAME POWER. SPIRIT OF GOD ON ME. I CAN HEAL NOW. I CAN DO WHAT
GOD’S WORD SAYS.” NOW, LOOK. SHE’S 24 HOURS OLD. NO TEACHING,
BUT BELIEVING, THAT IF GOD SAYS
IT WAS POSSIBLE, SHE JUST PICKED IT UP. SHE DID NOT FEEL THAT
SHE HAD TO QUALIFY. SHE FELT LIKE SHE
HAD BEEN QUALIFIED. AND I’M TELLING YOU. THE WORD OF GOD SAYS THE
RIGHTEOUS ARE AS BOLD AS A LION, AND THOSE THAT
KNOW GOD WILL DO EXPLOITS. SO SHE WAS USING
WHAT SHE HAD LEARNED. AND SHE WAS PROCLAIMING. SHE SAID, [SPEAKING IN
ASIAN ACCENT] DR. CLARICE FLUITT FROM THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. SHE COMES TO TELL YOU
ABOUT THE LIVING GOD. TELL ABOUT HIS
SON, THE MESSIAH, THE PROMISED ONE.” OH MY! [LAUGHS] SO I GET UP,
AND I’M SO NERVOUS, YA’LL. IT’S SO DARK IN THERE. AND I SAID,
“WELL, HELLO EVERYONE. I’M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE.” AND I THOUGHT
THAT’S LIE NUMBER ONE. YOU KNOW. I AM NOT HAPPY TO BE HERE. I AM MOST
MISERABLE TO BE HERE. BUT I PUT ON A GOOD FRONT. AND THE LORD SAYS, “JUST
TELL THEM I LOVE THEM.” AND I SAID,
“THERE IS A GOD. HE DOES HAVE A SON THAT
HAS PAID THE PRICE FOR ALL SIN, ALL SICKNESS,
ALL DISAPPOINTMENT, AND THAT – HIS INVITATION
TO YOU TODAY IS THAT HE WANTS TO INVITE YOU TO
COME TO LIVE ETERNALLY WITH HIM IN HIS HOME WHERE
THERE IS NO SICKNESS, OR SORROW, OR
POVERTY, OR HEARTBREAK. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY
I CHOOSE TO RECEIVE THE LOVE OF GOD. AND I RECEIVE AND
BELIEVE THAT THE MESSIAH, THE CHRIST IS
THE SON OF GOD.” AND I SAID, “NOW, HOW MANY
OF YOU WOULD LIKE FOR ME TO PRAY FOR YOU?” LET ME TELL YOU. IF I TOLD YOU – EVERY
MAN AND WOMAN RAISED THEIR HAND. AND I THOUGHT –
OH MY GOODNESS, MAYBE I’M CALLED TO BARS. WHO KNOWS? [LAUGHS] I GOT SUCH A
RESPONSE GOING OVER HERE. THIS IS AMAZING. AND I THOUGHT – ALRIGHT. WELL, I’M JUST GOING TO
GIVE A GENERAL ALTAR CALL AND SAY – EVERYBODY
JUST REPEAT AFTER ME. I BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS
THE SON OF GOD CONCEIVED BY THE POWER OF
THE HOLY SPIRIT, BORN OF THE VIRGIN
MARY, SUFFERED – I HAD IT, I HAD IT ALL MEMORIZED. AND WHILE I’M IN THE MIDST
OF DOING MY THING THE SPIRIT OF GOD SPOKE TO ME. AND HE SAID,
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” AND I SAID, “I’M
LEADING THEM TO CHRIST.” AND HE SAYS, “THAT’S NOT
WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO.” HE SAYS, “GO LAY HANDS
ON EACH ONE OF THEM.” AND I THOUGHT,
“I’LL BE HERE FOREVER. THERE’S SO MANY PEOPLE.” HE SAID, “TRUST ME.” SO I GO OUT. AND, FIRST OF ALL, I
LAY MY HANDS ON – I SAY, “DO YOU WANT TO
RECEIVE THE MESSIAH, THE CHRIST? DO YOU WANT TO LIVE
ETERNALLY WITH GOD?” [SPEAKING IN ASIAN ACCENT]
“I WANT TO LIVE WITH CHRIST. LET HIM COME
INTO MY HEART.” AND I THOUGHT, “OH! PRAISE GOD.” AND I WENT DOWN GIRL
AFTER GIRL AFTER GIRL, AND I HAD THIS
WHOLE BUNCH. I FELT LIKE SUPERGIRL. THIS WAS INCREDIBLE. THIS WAS LIKE FRESH FRUIT
FALLING INTO MY BASKET. AND I THOUGHT –
THIS IS SO EASY! AND I GOT DOWN TO ABOUT
GIRL NUMBER FIFTEEN OR SIXTEEN. SHE HAD HER HEAD DOWN. AND I SAID,
“HONEY, LOOK UP AT ME.” AND WHEN SHE
LOOKED UP TO ME, I’M TELLING YOU, YA’LL,
THERE WERE NO PUPILS. I MEAN, SCHOOL WAS
OUT FOR THAT GIRL. THAT WAS ONE
DEMONIZED CHILD. AND THIS VOICE
CAME OUT OF HER. IT SAID, [SPEAKING IN A
DEEP VOICE] “WE WILL KILL YOU.” AND I THOUGHT – OH NO. AND WHEN SHE SAID THAT I
DIDN’T KNOW QUITE WHAT TO DO. AND I SAID, “IN THE
AUTHORITY OF THE NAME OF THE LORD GOD
ALMIGHTY I BIND YOU SATAN, AND I COMMAND YOU TO TURN
THIS WOMAN – WELL WHEN THAT HAPPENED EVERYBODY
BEHIND ME STARTED SCREAMING AND
THROWING CHAIRS. AND I THOUGHT – [LAUGHS]
YOU BROUGHT ME HERE TO KILL ME! THIS IS – I KNEW I
SHOULD’VE NEVER COME TO A BAR! I KNEW THIS WAS
THE WRONG PLACE. THESE ARE ALL EVIL PEOPLE
THAT ALL NEED TO GO TO HELL. YOU KNOW, ALL MY RELIGIOUS
DEMONS WERE STIRRED UP WHEN SHE GOT
HERS STIRRED UP. BUT I JUST WENT ON A TEAR. AND I WAS GOING THROUGH. AND I SAID, “COME
OUT IN JESUS’ NAME. [LAUGHS] COME OUT
IN JESUS’ NAME!” AND I’M RUNNING
THROUGH THESE PEOPLE, AND I HEARD, “COME OUT. COME OUT OF THEM IN
THE MESSIAH’S NAME, IN THE NAME OF
THE MESSIAH.” THEY WERE CRYING OUT LOUD. AND LET ME TELL
YOU SOMETHING. THEY HAD NO TRAINING. THEY HAD JUST MADE A
PROFESSION OF FAITH. THEY HAD JUST ASKED JESUS
TO COME INTO THEIR HEARTS AND ASKED FOR THE POWER
OF GOD TO BE UPON THEM. AND THEY GOT UP. WHATEVER THEY SAW ME
DOING THEY WERE DOING IT. AND IN 15 MINUTES
THAT ENTIRE PLACE, PEOPLE WERE BORN AGAIN. PEOPLE WERE BAPTIZED
IN THE SPIRIT OF GOD. PEOPLE HAD DEVILS
CAST OUT OF THEM. I THOUGHT, “OH
MY GOODNESS! THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING
THING I’VE EVER SEEN. HOW CAN IT BE THAT
THE GRACE OF GOD, ONCE IT’S RELEASED,
ONCE YOU BELIEVE, ONCE YOU BEGIN TO ACT LIKE
YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS PAID IT ALL, ALL
THINGS BEGIN TO CHANGE? INCREDIBLE THINGS
BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE. THE JOY OF THE
LORD WAS IN MY HEART. AND I SAID, “OH, LADIES,
IT WAS SO WONDERFUL.” AFTERWARD, EVERYBODY
IS WEEPING AND CRYING, AND SAYING, “OH,
I’VE BEEN BORN AGAIN! OH, I FEEL THE
POWER OF GOD.” ALL THESE WONDERFUL
THINGS THAT WERE GOING ON. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. WE THINK WE HAVE TO
QUALIFY PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO SERVE GOD. GOD IS LOOKING, NOT FOR A
GOLDEN VESSEL OR A SILVER VESSEL. HOW ABOUT AN EMPTY VESSEL? HOW ABOUT SOMEBODY THAT
WILL JUST LET GOD ARISE. NO LONGER SAYING, “OH, I
WANT TO BE THE HAND OF GOD EXTENDED.” POSSIBLY YOU NEED TO
BE THE GLOVE OF GOD, AND LET GOD DO THE WORK,
LET GOD DO THE HEALING AND THE DELIVERING. I’M TELLING YOU. I’VE GOT – THE END OF THIS
STORY IS GOING TO REALLY MAKE YOU BLESSED. SO DON’T YOU MISS THE
REST OF THIS THING. I’M GOING TO
BE RIGHT BACK. DON’T YOU MOVE THAT DIAL. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] CF: WELL, YOU’VE GOT TO
HEAR THE REST OF THIS STORY. I’M TELLING YOU. THAT DAY I SAID,
“LADIES, WE HAVE HAD THIS INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE. NOW YOU NEED TO HAVE A
DOCTRINE BECAUSE YOU JUST CAN’T JUST WALK ON
EXPERIENCE ALONE. YOU’VE GOT TO
HAVE THE TRUTH.” AND I SAID, “TONIGHT, AT
OUR PRAYER MEETING THAT WE’RE GOING TO HAVE, I’M
GOING TO EXPLAIN TO YOU WHAT HAS HAPPENED. I’M GOING TO EXPLAIN
TO YOU ABOUT THE MIGHTY BAPTISM OF THE
HOLY SPIRIT. I’M GOING TO TEACH YOU
THESE INCREDIBLE TRUTHS. OH, I’M SO EXCITED.” AND CORA
LOOKED, AND SHE SAID, [SPEAKING IN
ASIAN ACCENT] “OH, DR. FLUITT, WE
WORK NIGHTTIME.” I THOUGHT – OH! HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN? WE HAD THIS
INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE. YOU RECEIVED
CHRIST INTO YOUR HEART. YOU’VE ASKED THE HOLY
SPIRIT TO BAPTIZE YOU IN THE HOLY GHOST. YOU’RE SPEAKING IN A
LANGUAGE THAT NO MAN TAUGHT YOU. THAT IS AN
INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE. HOW COULD YOU WANT –
HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN? OH MY GOODNESS. I THOUGHT – I’VE TURNED
THEM ALL INTO CHILDREN OF HELL. AND THE LORD
SPOKE AND SAID, “YOU HAVE A LITTLE TOO
MUCH CONFIDENCE IN WHAT YOU CAN DO.” HE SAYS, “YOU’RE GOING
TO HAVE TO TRUST ME.” WELL, I WENT
BACK TO THE HOTEL. AND I SPENT THE NIGHT. AND, I’M
TELLING YOU, I CRIED. I ACTED LIKE A LITTLE
HEATHEN THAT DIDN’T BELIEVE
ANYTHING THAT GOD DID. AND I THOUGHT – IT’S
JUST A TERRIBLE THING. MY MOTHER TOLD ME
TO NEVER GO TO BARS, AND NOT TO FOOL
WITH PEOPLE WHO DO. ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT
WERE WORKING IN MY LIFE, YOU KNOW, ALL
OF THE VOICES, ALL OF THE
RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS, AND THE MIND OF MAN, WHICH
MAKES THE VOICE OF GOD TO NO EFFECT. I’M TELLING YOU. WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS
VERY, VERY IMPORTANT. YOU CAN BE SINCERE
AND BE SINCERELY WRONG. NOW, I LOVED GOD, AND I
WAS READING HIS WORD. BUT GOD WANTED TO TAKE ME
TO ANOTHER DIMENSION OF UNDERSTANDING
ABOUT HIS GRACE, ABOUT HIS SOVEREIGNTY,
ABOUT HIS LOVE, ABOUT HIS
ABILITY TO EMPOWER. AND SO [LAUGHS] THE NEXT
DAY MISS CORA CAME BY TO SEE ME, AND I
COULDN’T HELP IT, YOU GUYS. I JUST COULDN’T HELP IT. I HAD TO ASK HER. I SAID, “WELL, HOW
TO YOUR EVENING GO?” [SPEAKING IN ASIAN
ACCENT] “OH,” SHE SAID, “IT WAS VERY, VERY GOOD.” SHE SAID, “MY PARAMOUR
IS DIAMOND MERCHANT. AND HE’S A BUDDHIST,
HE’S CHINESE BUDDHIST. VERY, VERY RICH MAN. HE HAS TERRIBLE ULCERS.” SHE SAID, “HE’S SICK. HE VERY SICK. HE WENT TO THE BUDDHIST
PRIEST AND PAY LOTS OF MONEY, AND
NOTHING HAPPEN.” BUT SHE SAYS, “I TOLD HIM,
I GO TO PRAYER MEETING. POWER OF GOD COME ON ME. SPIRIT OF THE
LIVING GOD IN ME. I CAN HEAL YOU.” SHE SAYS, “I LAY
MY HANDS ON HIM, AND I SPEAK HEALING, AND
HIS ULCER QUIT HURTING. HE GIVE ME MORE MONEY LAST
NIGHT THAN EVER BEFORE.” AND I THOUGHT, “OHH!” I WAS SO OFFENDED. LISTEN. IMMATURE DOES NOT
HAVE TO BE IMPURE. AND WEAK DOES NOT
HAVE TO BE WICKED. YOU HAVE TO
GIVE PEOPLE TIME. I HAVE FIVE CHILDREN. AND WHEN THEY WERE
LITTLE I DIDN’T SAY, “UNTIL YOU CAN HAVE PROPER
MANNERS AND CAN EAT AT THE TABLE LIKE THE ADULTS
DO YOU CAN’T BE FED.” WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
THAT THERE IS A GROWING PROCESS, THERE IS TEACHING
IN ALL OF OUR LIVES. IT WAS CERTAINLY A
TEACHING FOR ME AS I WENT THERE, AND I FOUND OUT ALL
OF THIS INFORMATION THAT WE THINK WE HAVE TO HAVE
BEFORE WE CAN MOVE IN THE POWER AND
AUTHORITY OF GOD. [MUSIC] PLEASE DON’T TAKE
MY WORDS APART FROM MY SPIRIT, BUT UNDERSTAND,
THERE IS A GRACE THAT GOD SAYS, “COME. COME, LET ME SHOW YOU. RECEIVE ME. BELIEVE ME. AND I WILL EMPOWER YOU.” AND AS YOU SEE THAT RISEN
CHRIST IN YOU’RE GOING TO SEE INCREDIBLE, WONDERFUL
THINGS TAKE PLACE. SO I AM HERE TO TELL
YOU THAT MY EXPERIENCE OF GOING TO CLUB BRAVO
IN HONG KONG – AND, DO YOU KNOW, THAT RIGHT
BEFORE HONG KONG CAME BACK INTO THE
RULERSHIP OF CHINA, EVERY CHRISTIAN
CHURCH THAT WAS ALREADY ESTABLISHED WAS
ALLOWED TO STAY THERE. AND CORA, IN THE
FULLNESS OF TIME, SHE ABSOLUTELY – LISTEN,
IT’S JUST INCREDIBLE. THIS INCREDIBLE WOMAN –
SHE BECAME THE PASTOR OF CLUB BRAVO. AND THE CHURCH
WAS ESTABLISHED. AND WHEN CHINA TOOK HONG
KONG BACK THEY ALLOWED CLUB BRAVO TO STAY THERE. WELL, AFTER A PERIOD OF
TIME CORA WENT BACK TO THE PHILIPPINES,
JOINED HER HUSBAND, AND THEY OPENED A
WONDERFUL CHURCH TOGETHER. NOW, I HAVE LOST
CONTACT WITH THESE PEOPLE, BUT I AM HERE TO TELL
YOU THAT WAS A STORY THAT CHANGED MY LIFE. IT BROUGHT ME TO A PLACE
OF UNDERSTANDING THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY,
HE HAS GRACE. I AM PRAYING
FOR YOU TODAY. I AM SPEAKING WORDS OF
POWER AND AUTHORITY INTO YOUR LIFE. I AM CREATING AN
ATMOSPHERE THAT’S CONDUCIVE FOR THE POWER
OF THE LIVING GOD TO COME INTO THE ROOM THAT YOU’RE
SITTING IN AND THAT YOU’LL BE HEALED IN
YOUR THOUGHT LIFE, BE HEALED IN YOUR BODY, BE
DELIVERED OF ALL KIND OF RELIGIOUS
SPIRITS, GOOD, BAD, OR UGLY. THEY DON’T HAVE ANY
PLACE TO LIVE IN YOU. AND THAT JOY UNSPEAKABLE,
THE GOODNESS OF GOD, THE RESURRECTION LIFE
OF CHRIST WILL COME AND BECOME A REALITY TO YOU. WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT
YOU JOINING US WITH OUR PROGRAMMING. WE BELIEVE THAT’S IT’S THE
TIME FOR THE IMPARTATION OF POWER AND AUTHORITY. WE PROPHESY. WE DECREE. WE PROCLAIM. WE ESTABLISH AND SAY, “YOU
ARE BLESSED FROM THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD TO THE
SOULS OF YOUR FEET.” AND I’M JUST
GOING TO REMEMBER, LIKE MISS CORA SAID, “THAT
SAME SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD THAT BE ON THE
MINISTER BE ON ME.” AND SHE BELIEVED IT. AND IT HAPPENED. YOU BELIEVE IT,
AND IT WILL HAPPEN. ACTIVATE. UNTIL NEXT TIME, THIS
IS DR. CLARICE FLUITT. [MUSIC]
