T. D. Jakes | – The Curious Convergence of Thirst – Bishop T.D. Jakes

From money to mansions to mates and career moves, we’re so consumed with our own agendas that we’ve failed to ask: Do these things actually fulfill us? What if there was something more than our middling lives? What if Jesus thirsts for us that He may give us His everlasting water in spirit and in truth? Do you want that water? If so, accept it, lay down all distractions, worship Him, and watch Him change your life – for God sees the best of what you could be, not just what you are!

  1. IT IS WRITTEN: FOR IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE HE WILL KEEP ME SAFE IN HIS DWELLING; HE WILL HIDE ME IN THE SHELTER OF HIS TABERNACLES AND SET ME HIGH UPON A ROCK.
    THEN MY HEAD WILL BE EXALTED ABOVE THE ENEMIES WHO SURROUND ME; AT HIS TABERNACLE WILL I SACRIFICE WITH SHOUTS OF JOY; I WILL SING AND MAKE MUSIC TO TMH FATHER GOD.
    HEAR MY VOICE WHEN I CALL, O HEAVENLY FATHER GOD; BE MERCIFUL TO ME AND ANSWER ME. MY HEART SAYS OF YOU, "SEEK HIS FACE!" YOUR FACE, HEAVENLY FATHER GOD, I WILL SEEK.
    DO NOT HIDE YOUR FACE FROM ME, DO NOT TURN YOUR SERVANT AWAY IN ANGER; YOU HAVE BEEN MY HELPER. DO NOT"REJECT ME" OR "FORSAKE ME," O HEAVENLY FATHER GOD MY SAVIOUR.
    THOUGH MY FATHER & MOTHER FORSAKE ME, THE MOST HIGH HEAVENLY FATHER WILL RECEIVE ME.
    TEACH ME YOUR WAY, O HEAVENLY FATHER GOD; LEAD ME IN A STRAIGHT PATH BECAUSE OF MY OPPRESSORS.
    DO NOT TURN ME OVER TO THE DESIRE OF MY FOES, FOR FALSE WITNESSES RISE UP AGAINST ME, BREATHING OUT VIOLENCE.
    I AM STILL CONFIDENT OF THIS: I WILL SEE THE GOODNESS OF TMH HEAVENLY FATHER GOD IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING.
    WAIT FOR TMH HEAVENLY FATHER GOD; BE STRONG AND TAKE HEART AND WAIT FOR TMH HEAVENLY FATHER GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PSALM 27:5-14

    "BISHOP TD JAKES! … THE MOST HIGH HEAVENLY FATHER GOD — UNIVERSAL CREATOR!!!" … HAS AN "UNCONDITIONAL LOVE EMPOWERMENT ENERGY!!!" … that "FILLS OUR ENTIRE INNER CORE BEING!!!!!" … with EXTREME & INTENSE! … "*LOVE; FAITH; EMPATHY; PEACE; COMFORT; CONTENTMENT; COMPASSION; KINDNESS & GIVING NATURE; SINCERE CARE & CONCERN;* ASSURANCE; TRUST; HOPE; HUMILITY; TENACITY; BRILLIANCE; INTELLIGENCE; FEARLESSNESS; BOLDNESS; STRENGTH; COURAGE … and so much MORE!!!!!" … "a continuous POWER SURGE!!!" … of THE HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTING!!! … ALLOWING "E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G" … "And I MEAN absolutely E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!!!!!" … "TO FALL INTO ITS RIGHTFUL PLACE!!!" … which is "OUR PERSONAL & COLLECTIVE (UNITED TOGETHER AS ONE!!!) P-U-R-P-O-S-E!!! … "HERE" on Earth!!!!!!"

    "It's actually "IRONIC!?" TMH FATHER GOD definitely has an "UNIQUE" Sense of HUMOUR!?? The "Covert *DOOR-MAT?? Narcissist" that I became "ACQUAINTED WITH???" … recently upon my "SPIRITUAL JOURNEY;" is "The One" that came home from Work one afternoon; "ALL EXCITED!!??" … to show MEE a "Specific" TD JAKES Motivational Video; as well as; directed MEE to MANY of YOUR *"AMAZING: INSPIRING; UP-LIFTING; ENCOURAGING & SUPPORTIVE" Preaching & Teaching SERMON Videos!!! Despite the "Darkness & Deception" that my "INTUITION" alerted MEE to; from the "Initial MEETING!?!" … there was "STILL SOMETHING SHY; INNOCENT & LOVING????" … within "THIS BEING??" … that had MEE "Puzzled??" … BUT!! … "INTRIGUED!!!!" … because I always ENJOY a "CHALLENGE!!!" … and because I "HONESTLY ENJOY TO WIN & CONQUER!!!!!!" I DON'T LIKE TO "LOSE!?" … AT ALL!!!!! TMH FATHER GOD is a "JUST & FAIR GOD!!!!" … therefore, I always give my "Enemies & Opponents??" … "FAIR W-A-R-N-I-N-G!!!???" I AM a TRUE "WARRIOR!!!" "NEVER GIVING UP!!!!!" "PRESSING towards THE MARK!!! … of THE PRIZE!!! … of a "HIGHER CALLING!!!!!!" "U-N-S-T-O-P-P-A-B-L-E!!!!!!!!!"

    I sincerely & truly "COMMEND YOU BISHOP JAKES;" … for "DELIVERING THE HOLY WORD of TMH GOD!!!" … with such "ELOQUENCE & ESSENCE!!!" … yet STILL SO "POWERFUL & CONVICTING!!!" … leading MANY to "SELF-LOVE; SELF RESPECT & SELF-AWARENESS;" which is followed by "CORRECTION; HEALING; REPENTANCE; DELIVERANCE & F-R-E-E-D-O-M!!!!!!!!!!" You have always "TOUCHED MY HEART, MIND & SOUL/SPIRIT!!!" … with the "WISE; PRECISE & ATTENTION-GRABBING MANNER!!!" … in which you bring forth "THE MESSAGE" … from OUR HEAVENLY FATHER — TMH GOD!!! "Believe IT or NOT!?" … due to being "ADDICTED!?!" … to "Viewing & Studying" your Videos; practically 24/7!! … My Narcissistic Friend?? … began to become "JEALOUS & RESENTFUL!??!" … that I was "Taking ALL of MY ATTENTION!!!" … which a "Narcissist MUST RECEIVE????" … and "GIVING IT TO YOU!!!!!" : ) LOL!! Just like their "Father of LIES" — Satan/Lucifer — Fallen Angel;" these "Demonically-Possessed" PREDATORS "NEVER LEARN??" … that their "Deceitful; Dishonest; Manipulative; Seductive" Narcissistic ABUSE Techniques such as: "TRIANGULATION; GAS-LIGHTING; PROJECTING; DISCARDING; SMEAR CAMPAIGNING!!" … usually "BACK-FIRE!!!!" (RETURN 2 SENDER??) … because of the "Wicked; Selfish & TOXIC EVIL INTENT!??!" … that was utilized; in order to bring "Emotional; Mental and/or Physical" HARM to a "Fellow Human Being!?!"

    "FIRST LADY, SERITA JAKES!!!" … MUST INDEED be an "ANGELIC CHOSEN ONE!!!" … to be "BLESSED" … with such an "AMAZING EPHESIANS 5 HUSBAND!!!!" : ) Continuous "BLESSINGS & FAVOUR!!!" for your "COVENANTED MARITAL UNION; Ministry & FAMILY!!!!! You have been a *"TRUE INSPIRATION!!!" … for MANY!!!!! … including MEE!!!!!! (Hugs & Kisses!!)

    IT IS WRITTEN: DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE "THINGS" OF THIS WORLD; BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE
    RENEWING OF YOUR MIND!!!

    MY PEOPLE PERISH (SUFFER) FROM LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOVE CONQUERS "ALL" EVIL!!!!!!! "H-A-L-L-E-L-U-Y-A-H!!!!!!" "ALL is WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  2. ✨ Mannnnn this is good!! I’m bout DEHYDRATED, this is so for me… That’s all I’ve ever desired was to at least save 1…whether it was for the Kingdom (most importantly), then Health, just over all a better quality of life… Lord, here I am… This is not a new thing within me, I’ve always known saving souls was a calling of mine…just haven’t had the proper direction or focus to be honest… THIS is what I’m supposed to be doing, exactly what you’re sharing with us… Things, stages, followers, titles, etc…have never been my drive… His spirit is what fills me, Lord allow me to quench your thirst father… Please…hear my call…in your timing lord… I’m all ears, my attention – you’ve got it!!! Decrease me Lord, so that you may increase… ✨

  3. A key is broken in many places! What an awesome analysis! Usually the beginning of the key has the deepest (lowest indentations). The church hurt! The beginning of hurt that we endure and push through so God can use us!

  4. Dear Bishop, thank you for the message , however I have a question, how does one serve God's purpose with an extremely broken spirit at an old age? It's one thing to be saved, it's another thing to be delivered from your past wounds, wounds that create deep rooted coping mechanisms that become a part and parcel of one's personality because that is all one knows. There's an old adage ~ You cannot teach an old dog new tricks.

  5. First of all I want to thank Pastor TD Jakes for this bible study which was deep and meaningful I have learnt that as believers we must win souls for Christ and not be concerned about my agenda. I do that sometimes I can relate to this bible study and I thank the Lord for quenching my thirst Amen

  6. what is your hearts desire is what it comes down to. t.d jakes hearts desire is money. because hes a prosperity preacher his treasure is on earth where it can be stolen. he will end up naked in heaven if he makes it and you people are not helping him by feeding him your money. is that what you want for him? my hearts desire is to be with god. ezkiel 38 and 39 is coming and so is judgement get ready put god as your first love. and be ready for the rapture of the church.

  7. hes not telling you the truth you are already found righteous thru christ you can only be found un righteous if you are sinning back sliden or not with christ. put god as your first love. do not crave what your flesh wants.

  8. There has been a few question I had been asking God to guide me through. After getting myself down for the night God guide me to this lesson and inspiring wrod….I thank God for His confirmation and I look forward to eating like a Queen….I pray with you Sarah Jakes Roberts as God continue to use you to guy those of us who need it to walk in the light of Christ!!!

  9. Thank you Bishop Jakes born and raised Baptist raised in the church until I was 18 then I rebelled against being made to go I always have love in my heart for Jesus but I never went to church I was sitting watching Sandy TV when you came on and restored my love for Jesus in my life
