– Hi, my name is Mylon Le
Fevre and music is in my blood. I got my first big break
when Elvis Presley recorded a song I’d written at 17 years old. That moment changed my life forever. I went from having nothing to
having my dreams come true. I toured the world, and played with some of
the biggest names in music, and had more money than
I knew what to do with. I finally hit rock bottom when I almost died from a drug overdose. It became painfully obvious
something had to change. Everything did change, when
I gave my life to Jesus at a Second Chapter of
Acts concert in 1980. God instantly delivered me from drugs and totally turned my life around. I began to use my gift
of music for the Lord and started a Christian
band Mylon and Broken Heart. It eventually grew to be one the biggest Christian
rock bands in the world at the time. We win several Grammy’s and Dove awards, but most importantly, we led
over 200,000 kids to Christ. Now years later, I’m
still living for Jesus and my wife Christi and I travel the globe
proclaiming God’s goodness. I’ve been from rock
bottom to the mountaintop, and I’m going all the way to heaven, so come on and join me
on the road to freedom. (“It Ain’t Enough” by Gyom) (upbeat country music) Welcome to On The Road To Freedom. I hope your having an awesome day. We’re having so much fun it
outta be against the law. We are out here enjoying the love of God. – Hallelujah. Thank you Lord.
– And you know some people call this
a Christian T.V. show, but I wanna tell you the bottom line on this
whole deal right here is God is in love with you, and he wants to prove it to you, and he wants to show up at your house and do amazing, wonderful,
magnificent things for you in your life. Jesus told us we outta pray that it’d be on earth as it is in heaven. – That’s right.
– And in your house. In your health. In your marriage, with your kids. – [Kenneth] Amen. – So God’s in love with you, and he’s excited about this opportunity to teach us some more. Jesus said, “If you continue in my word.” This is John 8:31-32. “If you continue in my word,” and that’s what we’re here for, “you will be my disciple.” That means you’ll be a follower of Jesus. You’ll see him doing
something and you will do it. You will hear him saying
something and you’ll say it. And you’ll watch how he
acts and how he reacts, and that’ll determine how you
act and react in the future. And as you hear his voice
and you continue in his word, you’ll become his disciple. You’ll know the truth,
you’ll understand it, and you will live by faith. It’ll set you free in other words. And freedom, that’s what it’s all about. God wants you free and free indeed. That’s why Jesus came, so we’re gonna share some word. We got the most special guest that I could ever have
– The most special. The most special.
– On this planet. I mean I gotta a lot of buddies, but this is my father in faith right here. This is brother Kenneth Copeland. – [Kenneth] We’ve been
together a long time. – We have sir, 29 years. – 29 years. – I met you 29 years ago. And you know Paul said to Timothy, a young man he was mentoring, he said, “Follow me as I follow Christ.” And I’ve been doing that now for 29 years. – Praise God. You sort of adopted me, and you let me hang around and watch. You didn’t just teach me. You let me watch how you handled it when the devil attacked you,
or your kid, your grandson. Somebody, some situation
that could’ve been dangerous. I watched the way you handled it and I watched you
practice what you preach. I saw how it worked and
boy it changed my life. I’m so thankful for you sir. – Amen. – Amen. – Were talking about
fundamentals of faith. – Yes.
– We are. – [Kenneth] The very basic fundamentals. Now to understand that, it’s extremely important to know that all the things that we’re discussing are laws. Spiritual laws put the laws of matter in motion. A spirit, God is a Spirit. – Yes sir. – The spirit created all matter, so the spiritual world is more real than this natural physical. – That’s right. – And when we get born again, when we accept Jesus
Christ as Lord and Savior, then according to Colossians Chapter One, we were delivered from
the authority of darkness. – Thank you Jesus. – And translated into the
kingdom of his dear son. The son of Love, glory to
God, in the kingdom of love ’cause God is love, and the kingdom of God is the love kingdom. Hallelujah, amen. – [Christi] Amen. – And the currency in
that kingdom is faith. – Amen. – That’s the currency
of the kingdom of God. – Amen, yes it is.
– You’ll never, ever function without faith.
– That’s exactly true. – [Kenneth] When you get to
heaven you function in faith. Glory to God. – So good. – Why Brother Copeland. Don’t start that. You know, yeah, but what if? Get your what if outta the way and just realize that God is a faith God. – [Mylon] Yes he is. – He moves by faith. It pleases him when his
children just step out before they can see or feel anything and say your word said it, I believe it, and that settles it. Glory to God.
– Amen. – [Kenneth] I mean
whether I feel it or not. – And you can’t please him without it. – No you can’t. – It’s impossible. – Mylon, you can’t please
Christi without faith. – Or me. – Right, you’re right. – Somebody thinks I’m a liar, I don’t care what they’s buy me. Send me. – Well, just think about it. You know, babe, I love you. I just don’t believe nothing you say. Are you kidding me, no. – [Christi] No, you’re right. – Faith is pleasing to God. – [Mylon] Sure. – And so let’s go back. We’re talking about the very
basic fundamentals of faith. It’s very important to realize that the fundamentals never change, ever. They never change. Jesus said. Mark 11:22, “Have faith in God.” – Amen. – “For verily I say unto you, “that whosoever shall
say under this mountain, “be thou removed, and be
thou cast into the sea; “and shall not doubt in his heart, “but shall believe “that those things which he saith “shall come to pass; “he will have “whatsoever he says.” – [Mylon] Amen. – Amen. Now, your words are your faith speaking. Here’s something I wanna tell you. Now, we’re talking about
fundamentals laws here. They work on the positive side and they work on the negative side. Ignorance is no excuse,
’cause what you say is what you believe. – I remember when you were
first teaching me faith and I was saying a bunch of dumb stuff. I was telling all about what the devil been doing to me lately instead of quoting the
word and believing it. And you said, “Son.” You were so nice about it. You were so gracious about it, but you said, “You need to
learn the language of silence.” And I didn’t know what in
tarnation you were talking about. I thought, and I went. It probably two or three
hours later it dawned on me. I got the interpretation. He just told me I needed to shut up until I learned how to talk the word.
– How to talk faith. That’s right. – [Mylon] And then so
praise God, I got it. – I told Brother Jerry, this
is back at the very beginning when he was just learning (laughs). It was something that was really working
on the inside of me. (Kenneth laughs) I had told him close to the same thing. – You had to tell a bunch of ’em. – We were going along there and I said, Jerry, I’m gonna tell you
something now brother. The shout of a dog never bit anybody. He said, “These are hard sayings.” No, we walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, not the valley of death. The death has already been whipped. That death can’t bother you.
– Thank you Lord. – [Kenneth] Aye, he’s
prepared a table for us in the presence of our enemies. – [Mylon] Yes sir. That means he ain’t got no
place at the table, so quit. Forget about him even being there. – [Mylon] Amen. – Just get on outta here. – [Christi] Amen. – He ain’t got no place at
this table, get (laughs). Amen. – [Mylon] Amen. – He’s no more powerful than a lizard running across this sand. And he has no more business
at our table than a dog, unless you give him strength. Then he’ll rip it to you. But as long as you walking in fear, I mean he’ll dog your tracks. – Yeah, dormant.
But he has been completely, absolutely, irrevocably defeated by the Lord Jesus Christ, the champion of champions. – [Mylon] Thank you Lord. – Hallelujah.
– Hallelujah. – [Kenneth] The Lord advocate,
general of the church. Hallelujah. – Hallelujah. – And I’m his to command. – Amen.
– Hallelujah. – [Kenneth] Thank you Jesus. That done preach me happy again man. I tell you what, I was
pretty happy when I got here. Now, notice this. “Therefore I say unto you, “what things soever you desire, “when you pray, start believing.” Not after you see something. – [Mylon] No. – No, when you pray. That’s when you start. Now I mentioned Thomas’s faith yesterday. You can’t receive Abraham’s
blessing with Thomas’s faith. – No. – That cant be done. – No. – Abraham said, “He called things “that be not as though they were. “Be it done as you have
spoken, as you have written.” That’s what little Mary said when the angel of the Lord came. She said, “I don’t understand it, “but be it done unto me
according to your word.” Amen. – [Mylon] Amen. – Thank you Jesus. This is final authority. – [Christi] Yes. – You have to come to that. – [Christ] It’s so good. – Where not what I think
about what it says. – [Mylon] Exactly. – His word is final authority,
absolute final authority. Remember Jesus said, “If you abide in me “and my words abide in you, “ask what you will “and it will be done unto you.” – Yes sir.
– Listen to that. How many times you in it? If you abide in me and my word abides in you, ask what you will and it
will be done unto you. It’s not up to God. He’s already answered your prayer. This book is the answer to
every prayer you can think of. Don’t hope to get an answer. Find the answer and then pray. Don’t start off stupid and find the answer that
covers your situation, the promise or the bible fact, and then start with that. – If I may say this, this is the most important
thing you’re ever gonna decide. I mean, can you trust God? What brother Copeland is
teaching you right now is how to get your mind renewed. But if you don’t believe God’s honest, you’re not gonna change your mind. You’re gonna keep on
thinking about it the old way and leaning on your own understanding, and that’s gonna keep the
devil eating your lunch. Now God’s not asking you to
think about this or vote on it. He doesn’t have any problems. The devil don’t bother him. You’re the one with problems. I’m the one that’s got problems, and Brother Copeland’s trying to teach you how to get those problems solved. The same spirit that raised
him from the dead is in you, and he’s trying to teach you
how to get that powerful God that raised Jesus from the dead out here where the problems are. He’s already in here. You got to get him outta this mouth and get him in your heart,
that’s where you believe. Then you gotta say it and expect it, and that’s faith. He’s teaching us how to
do this now, get this, but let him change your mind. Let God change your mind
while this is going on. – Think about the fact that
those basic fundamentals, faith Christi by hearing and
hearing by the word of God, every word in this book
is backed in blood. – Yeah, yes sir, amen. – God was standing in blood
when he spoke to Abraham. “Such so shall you receive me.” I’m totally convinced that
Abraham saw his footprints in that blood. I’m convinced of that. Well think about if the
blood of animals is powerful, think about the blood of God then. When Jesus said, “Seek ye
first the kingdom of God.” That’s backed in blood. All these things will be added unto you. You can take that in your heart, and you can compound it in there, and meditate on that,
and think about that. I mean glory to God if that’s
backed in his own blood. – Yeah, yes it is. – My God man. – Praise God. – That is a bible fact. – The blood of the lamb. – And he’s already said, “By
his stripes you were healed.” That is not a promise. That is a bible fact. – I wouldn’t be seating here alive if that wasn’t true. – That’s right. I wouldn’t either. – The devil’s tried to
kill us a bunch of times. The good news is he can’t. He already would have if he could. Gloria said one time, she said you know if things were as bad as
the devil says they are he wouldn’t have to lie about it. (everyone laughs) – That’s a good one. – That’s good. That’s a Gloria-ism. – I’ll remember that, it’s good. – Glory to God. – She had a bunch of those. (upbeat music) – Well we love to hear your testimonies. You know, the book of John says, “I have no greater joy than to hear that you’re
walking in the truth.” And it gives us great joy when we hear how the
truth has set you free and free indeed. And here’s a testimony from Bonnie. It came through our website. It says, “I so enjoy this
message, the goodness of God.” That was a good one. You know, my hunny preached that one. He’s my favorite preacher. She says, “You’re teaching
makes it easy to understand “what the scriptures mean
in the world we live in.” Oh boy, that really blesses us because that’s our heart. You need to be able to
apply the word of God to your daily life. And she says, “I wish I could sit down “and spend time with Christi and you “for a one on one teaching lesson.” Well Bonnie, we want you to know that that’s why we’re doing this show. Is so that we cannot only reach you, but also the world with the
good news of the gospel. And then she says, “I pray
for you and Christi daily.” Thank you so much for that. Bonnie, we need your prayers. Team Mylon, we need your prayers, and we want you to know
we’re praying for you too. How can we join our faith with you? If you need prayer,
please contact us today at mylon.org. (upbeat country music) – Now, it’s so important to understand that the first fundamental of faith is believe in your heart
and say it with your mouth. Now here’s the next thing, and when you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought against it. – [Mylon] Anybody. – That comes right when your praying, not when you feel better about it. None of this has anything
to do with feelings. – People tell me they can’t do that, but you can. – If he says you can, you can. – Well of course. He’ll give you the grace to do it. He’ll put his super on your natural, but you gotta make the decision. It’s your life. Being mad at somebody, hating somebody, wanting God to get ’em or the
devil to fix their red wagon, that don’t hurt them. It just hurts you. Unbitterness. – I’m gonna tell you
what I’m gonna do Mylon, I’m gonna kill that old heifer. You watch me. I’m gonna take this poison
and see if she don’t die. How dumb can you get? It is a command. We are soldiers in the army of the Lord. There is no option here. It don’t make any difference
what you feel like. It don’t make any difference what I feel. Sir yes sir, they’re forgiven. I made the decision.
– Even if you know they’re gonna do it again to you tomorrow, I’ll still forgive ’em. – [Kenneth] Just forgive ’em. – ‘Cause God told me too, and he loves me, and I love him. – Amen. – [Mylon] Amen. – And just act like they’re forgiven. Something needs to be
said about that Mylon. You can immediately obey
God with your spirit and with your mind. Now if this has been a problem
for any length of time, you’re flesh is in the habit
of being mad about that. So it takes awhile to
get over to your flesh. It may take as much as
three or four weeks, but you just take
authority over the thing, and you can change that
habit of unforgiveness into a habit of forgiveness. You’re flesh will come right inline, and you fall in love with somebody, and it don’t make any
difference how they act. I got so tickly. Keith Moore talking about having to go home for Thanksgiving, and there they all are. You’re the fanatic and you’re gonna talk about
religion and politics. And you’re the one they’re
gonna dump on every time. Keith was saying what
you need to do is just it’s so good to see you (laughs). You make the decision. Say this Christi, my mind is my mind. – My mind is my mind.
– My mind is my mind. – [Kenneth] I tell it what to think. – I tell it what to think.
– I tell it what to think. – [Kenneth] And I tell it what to do. – And I tell it what to do.
– And I tell it what to do. – [Kenneth] My body is my body. – My body is my body.
– My body is my body. – [Kenneth] It don’t tell me what to do. – It don’t tell me what to do.
– It don’t tell me what to do. – [Kenneth] I tell it what to do. – I tell it what to do.
– I tell it what to do. – [Kenneth] And Jesus tells me what to do. – And Jesus tells me what to do. – I am not mind, body, and spirit. – I am not mind, body, and spirit. – I am spirit, soul, and body. – I am spirit, soul, and body.
– I am spirit, soul, and body. – [Kenneth] According to
First Thessalonians 5:23. – Yes sir. – Amen. – Amen.
– Amen. – [Kenneth] Spirit, that’s you. That’s what God wanted. I, you, can live without your body, but your body can’t live without you. – [Maylon] Yeah, amen. – Now, your spirit being. Inside this spirit being is the soul. You remember the rich
man that went to hell? – Yes sir. – Jesus told us this isn’t what a parable. He said a certain rich man. And he got into hell, and he looked up and saw Abraham. Abraham said, “Son, remember.” His memory wasn’t in his brain, his memory was in his soul which is part of his spirit. His brain’s in the ground
up there somewhere. Amen. – [Christi] Amen. – That is so vitally important. – It’s so good.
– Powerful. I never thought of that. – I never saw that. – [Kenneth] You’re the real
one, that you got born again. But now you’re gonna have to
do something with your mind, your will, and your emotions. You’re gonna have to renew it according to the twelfth
chapter of the book of Romans, and offer your body as a living
sacrifice for several years. In order to renew my mind, I didn’t call this my body, I called it my living sacrifice. And as I did that, the word began to divide asunder. The soul, and the spirit, and
the joints, and the marrow until it just completely
renewed my mind to it. And then the Lord began to
talk to me several years ago about Genesis 6:3, the days of man shall be 120 years. And asked me if I would do that for him, and I said yes sir. He said, “That’s as much my word “as by my stripes you were healed.” And so it became a mandate for me. I don’t think I would have
ever realized the truth of this without having renewed my mind to this is my sacrifice. I sacrificed this for you Jesus. I give it to you. He said Mylon so plain,
I heard it right in here. He said, “Kenneth, “I sacrificed my body for yours.” And I’m thinking about
this, I’m on that treadmill, I’m in there working out with weights, and this mandate of a 120
years, and I’m enjoying it. I love it. He said, “And you are
sacrificing your body for mine.” – [Mylon] Wow. – Oh Lord Jesus, I saw it man. The time I spend in the word, the time you spend building your faith, the time you spend renewing your mind, think about what you’re doing. You’re not forgiving
because you just think, well I just have to do this. No, no, no, you’re sacrificing. You’re moving in building. You’re building up your spirit. You’re building up your soul. You’re working your body
because your a soldier in the army of the Lord, and we got a job to do
that’s a whole lot bigger than anything that we messing around with in this world. – Yeah, without a doubt. – Because there’s things happening. – It’s forever.
– These are the end times. – [Mylon] Everything we’re
talking about is forever. – And when I get finished
with my 120th anniversary, that’s the shortest time you’ll ever live. – Yeah. – That’s true. – Amen. – This is the beginning. – This is just the beginning. There ain’t gonna be anymore
like us either (laughs). Think about this Mylon and Christi, when this thing is over and the catching of the church comes, that’s the end of the glorified ones. There won’t be anymore of ’em. That’s the end of it. All life will go on. The new heaven and the new earth, that’s the life will go on. No more glorified ones, ’cause the devil’s been
shipped completely outta here. He’s gone, he’s in the lake of fire. Goodbye sucker.
– Thank you Jesus. Get rid of him. – [Kenneth] Yeah, glory to God, but there’ll be no more glorified ones. They come up to us and say could
y’all tell us some stories? Oh, glory to God. Could you tell us some
stories about what it was like living to be 120 years old on the earth against all the demons and the devils? We don’t know what demons are like. Tell us what that’s like. It’s worth it I’m telling ya. It’s worth every second of it.
– It’s worth it y’all. – [Kenneth] And we’re outta time. – We’re outta time. The good news is we got
tomorrow, next week, and we aint never quittin’. It’s gonna be gettin’
good, keeps gettin’ better. If you’ll stay in the
word of God everyday, it’ll keep you on the
road to freedom where. – [All] Jesus is Lord. – I wanna talk to you for a moment about divine appointments, finding your place in the kingdom of God. I wanna encourage you. We call this a Team Mylon spot,
that’s the technical term. But when I was praying
about it this morning, what the Lord showed me is son, you’re looking for those people that I’ve called to be
a part of your ministry so that you can be a blessing to them, they can be a blessing to you, and you all can be a
blessing in my kingdom. Distribute the word of God. That’s all that’s about. We’re teaching the word of
God, trying to make it easy for everybody to make
holy and wise decisions so that God can raise
the quality of your life. Not just get ’em to heaven,
but heal their bodies, and fix their marriages,
and take their hurts away, and their depression,
and their discouragement, and their poverty, and their lack, and all the horrible things
that the enemy has done to ’em because of the sin. So if you wanna be a part of that, we call it Team Mylon. And I’m not beginning you to
give money to this ministry, I just wanna be straight
and honest with you. I’m a giver, because I see it in the word. I’m a tither. Our ministry is a tithing ministry. There are people going in the prison. I go in the prisons, but not everyday. There’s other people who
really have a heart for that, and that’s all they’re called to do. To go to Israel, or to
go to Africa, or China. We try to be a part of–
– Every good work. – [Mylon] A lot of kind of
works like I’m sure you do too. And again, I’m not asking you to give money to this ministry, but I’m encouraging you to find where you’re supposed to give. I’m called to teach. You’re called, if your born
again, we’re all called to find our place in the kingdom. I wanna encourage you. Pray about it. Think about it. You can’t give someplace. God loves a cheerful giver. You can’t give cheerfully
unless it’s your idea, unless you have perfect peace about it, and you know that you
know that God called you to support that ministry whether
it’s in prayer or finances, or maybe just to believe and
receive from that ministry. Either way, if you wanna be
a part of what we’re doing, go to mylon.org, click on Team
Mylon, fill out that form, we’ll be in touch with you. We’ll be praying for you,
because God loves you and we do too. Have a great day.
