  1. Why are all so surprised by blacks ascending to places of leadership in america? Especially blacks. Nothing is impossible in this man made world of hopes and dreams. As a 71 year old black women of the deep south I am never surprised by the achievement of all americans especially the direct descendent of former slaves. It is destiny.

  2. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  3. 2 Corinthians 11 verse 14-15
    14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

  4. A video FULL of TRAITORS, LIERS & CRIMINALS & will soon be exposed as such!! Joe Biden will NEVER be President of The United States of America, in the eyes of God!! The TRUE President WILL be restored, in God's timing; NOT mines.. Until then, I will CONTINUE to pray for America, the GREATEST country in the world.. God bless President Donald Trump, The United States of America & Israel..

  5. When was the last time we prayed for our pastors or each other. When was the last time we sat quiet in an attitude of love and prayer waiting to hear from The Holy Spirit. The church must come into unity, but not by trying to agree with each other but by all agreeing with The Holy Spirit. Opinion changes nothing, but a word from the Lord acted upon by 2 or 3 people is so powerful. faith works by Love not by contention. It's time to be speaking what God is speaking by giving our voice to The Holy Spirit in prayer, worship and thanksgiving. We are all sons and daughters of God our Father so lets all first be quiet before Him until we Hear what He is saying by His Holy Spirit then what we say will manifest… Love you all, praying for God's Kingdom to come and His will to be done!!!

  6. couldn't hear his speech over the silence, and there were NO Americans there, and military surrounding the place. THIS was not an America inauguration, it was a communist ceremony.

  7. The problem with our Politician, Disposition & Demeanor is DIRECTLY RELATED TO OUR PULPITS & PASTORS. The Pastors & Pulpits ARE TOXIC & SICK. The Hypocrisy, Compromise, Double Standard & Slouching towards Humanistic Ideology rather than Righteousness. Biden is an Overt & Covert liar who Smithers around. He just Told God there is no Male nor Female & he supports abortion
    No wonder there is division. TD Jake's is divided against God's Standards. Jesus was rough & abrasive in speech, upholding righteousness & truth. The current world reflects the pastors & pulpits who have become AntiChrist such as Jake's who l use to listen to daily. He has become a poor witness of Christ.

  8. TD Jakes you are working for the enemy. You are agreeing with the election fraud taking the easy path to be friends with the world. How could you praise this evil man who stole the election from the people of the USA.

  9. The only thing overwhelming about Joe Biden is his total inadequacy as a President and leader. Actually it appears that the national nightmare is only beginning. We are being pulled down by American moral & intellectual ineptitude. Honesty is a lost value and I fear that we too are lost. Does TD Jakes know ANYTHING about Joe Biden’s history & his current struggles? America’s enemies certainly do.
