T. D. Jakes | – Surviving in a Dry Place – Bishop T.D. Jakes

God is the rainmaker! He is the One who rescues you from a dry and dusty road and drenches you in the promise of a fruitful future. But to make it rain on your life and your circumstances, you’ve got to kill the things that held you back, drown out the outside noise, and dig the ditches that God will use to rain blessings of fire and blessings of rain. God confronts us with the challenge to praise that which seems small as it grows into something big — and to cherish the rain that He gives us to where we catch up with what we thought was ahead of us.

Message: “The Rainmaker!”

  1. DOES ANYONE…SEE?!?
    THAT WE ARE … VERY QUICKLY… Are…
    HEADING INTO A DRY PLACE!?
    TIME TO RISE AND SHINE..
    FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS' SAKE!

    THIS IS NO TIME, TO BE SELFISH…
    IT IS, "NO TIME" TO KEEP SILENT!
    IT IS TIME TO "KNOW" YOUR PLACE!
    AND STOP HOLDING HANDS WITH ANYONE, WHO SITS BACK AND WATCHES, AMERICA//ISRAEL BURN!!! GOD FORBIDS IT!!!

  2. Prayers needed please! I desperately need God to move in every area of my life/situation. Breakthrough needed in every area/aspect of my life. Rescue and relief for Chris and Rene's new beginnings. Move Daddy move Breakthrough Jesus It's urgent Move in my life

  3. Because if you had a clue where you are heading you would stop in your tracts and not move but all you got to do is stop leading and follow the leader the right direction to achieve the promise instead of the wrong way to suffering

  4. Because my way is so simple not difficult or hard no it's so easy a person like me can see where you will end up if you continue but if you just following the easy way to the promise land you who do will find your passion I put in your heart and not follow those who speak confusion and sacrifice and some get and others still suffer no my way we all get a better chance to live what was planed for you before confusion and lies took you the wrong way and we all lose the right way and best way for everyone

  5. People ask, God can I have this, can I have that, I want or need this and that..hardly ever this….God what can I do to be in service to you. What can I do to Glorify Gods kingdom through Your name Jesus? What can I do to better serve you Jesus? Seek the kingdom  first then these things will be added unto you. Once a man's heart is filled with the glory of the Lord he's a changed man, he no longer desires the things of the world. His desire is now to edify God's dwelling place, "to build upon" with his words that you received in the spirit. Therefore go out into the world and be fishers of men for we are All called to be ministers. This temporal world is but a vapor.

    James 4:14 refers to the human life as a vapor: it appears for a while and then vanishes.

    Perhaps if we remembered this truth we would have an easier time also remembering our purpose on earth.

    Life isn’t about accumulating money, power, or fame. Life’s about fulfilling God’s purpose for us. We must focus, therefore, on His eternal perspective.

  6. I THANK YOU . FOR THIS TEACHING , THIS IS SIGINIFACNT IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW. I am coming through because OF THE SUPPORT . JEZEBEL WILL NOT WIN HERE . BECAUSE I HAVE A PURPOSE. GOD HAS THIS WHOLE SITUATION. I LOVE YOU BISHOP AND YOUR FAMILY FOR FEEDING MY SPIRIT DAILY

  9. I know I needed this badly! Literally the same thing you’re saying. He is a great guy but he’s a narc. He’s abusive, he mentally, emotionally, physically, Financially sometimes. But he did help me go to God and the Lord more! But also satan used him to try to derail me at the same time will my beliefs. He moved me out of town the first time. God tried helping me with people, places and things. But he had a strong hold on me once again bc I was pregnant again! I’m now out of town again for the second time. And I was with my family in 2020 so all he could do , pregnant and all was to threaten me. Untilll a few months out here he did it. Smirked and said “one year right?” “It’s only been one year huh?” He did it again a couple days after that one. It’s been a month since those times now. But he tells me he will you know me if I don’t stop playing this game? I’m not playing a game I love him and trying to show him I do. but I see what he’s talking about. I’m playing a game with these devils. But I’m now on my journey to learning about the lord and trusting my father. But I’m getting inpatient bc I want to leave now! But I’m out here. I don’t want to go back where my family is. They’re toxic as a “family” and spiritual we just don’t mix for now. They good people physically sometimes but spiritual I just cannot! I have been saving . I just don’t have a job. My fear is walking away with no plan. But I want to leave so bad. His words eat me up. So this soul-tie strong bc we have two kids. Finally had my baby girl a few months ago. Which we thought we couldn’t have . We both have all boys! But I believe god gave me my daughter bc he’s telling me to break these generational curse so she won’t follow. Bc I’m follow my moms footsteps. I’m scared for me and my children. He study me and know where a lot of my people stay. I feel he will try to hunt me down. But that’s fear and god has no fear. So I’m trying to build myself up well the lord and my father is doing so. Pray for me as I continue to pray for everyone in a situation like this. One day I will share my story and help someone. Thank you.
