  14. 0:23:44 (Guys getting women by getting money… still fear, doubt, worry)
  15. 0:24:44 (Nothing you feel on the inside has anything to do with anybody on the outside. Face yourself. Prison, living in darkness… hardest thing: see you’re in a cave)
  16. 0:28:09 (You are not fear, doubt, worry… Be all-in. Overcome, whatever it takes. Willing to lose a life, die from false life) 
  17. 0:30:08 (The intellect is dumb, cannot enter the Kingdom of heaven, lower level, used for things on earth alone… cannot understand God… new nature)

  26. 0:45:40 don’t see he’s a bully, judging, good judgment 
  27. 0:50:33 Does it take courage to speak up for yourself? (Different people respond)
  28. 0:52:56 Another man answers about speaking up, whether it’s easier to or not to
  29. 0:54:53 Come up here and speak up! What does it feel like not being able to speak up? 
  30. 0:56:27 Tyree (sp) which takes more courage: To speak up or not to? Dealt with mother? (Same spirit in your wife.) 
  31. 0:59:30 (What’s it like knowing he’s afraid of you? Sad. What every woman wants. She lied to herself. Did you think you could make him better? Every woman wanna be God)
  32. 1:02:27 To wife: Have you forgiven your mother? Why not? Father hurt you, not protecting you from mother. She used to lie a lot, father can’t forgive, only God can. (She cries.) I always wanted his love and guidance; he keeps rejecting me. Why lying? Protecting myself. Still closer to mother. That’s why he doesn’t like you. Especially with husband being weak, all the hell will come out of you. “What a mess!” 
  33. 1:07:19 Another question re: Speaking up: Choosing to gain or lose favor with people… Seeing if anyone is on my side. They were never with you. 
  34. 1:10:06 JLP answers the man: Discernment vs opinions. All opinions from the Devil. Losing people means you never had them anyway. Real caring is not getting an identity (can take it or leave it). 
  35. 1:12:55 (I want to assure you: Nobody likes you.) 
  36. 1:13:30 To lady and others: Which takes courage: To speak up or not to speak up? (also: Hassan, Swedish vs. English disruption, Hake, Doug, Swedish guy on fear, … Donyale, Alexis, young man: Jesus loves you)
  37. 1:21:08 Young man to offender: Jesus loves you. 
  38. 1:23:03 JLP: It doesn’t take courage to speak up. If you have either courage or fear, you’re divided. It takes courage not to speak up. Speaking up protects the ego self. Jesus didn’t at times. If you overcome fear, there is no courage. The real you isn’t afraid anyway. The ego you has fear. When you think of good, bad, right, wrong — the intellect will make you divided. Welcome the fear. You gotta be whole, one: Only the Spirit of the Father can do that. Walk in the spirit. Practice being present. You/I can’t make it happen. Your mind will be renewed, clear. Stay with it no matter what you lose. You want to lose it, so you can have it in the right way. 
  39. 1:28:50 Was this helpful? (To the Swedish) Doing the Silent Prayer? (Thank you, mom.) 
  40. 1:30:21 Main Swedish fan: Forgave mother less than a week ago.
  41. 1:31:31 The “mama” Swedish fan hasn’t forgiven. FaceTime her? 
  42. 1:32:57 Young black man who asked questions: Feeling a certain way at work. Be glad to feel it; let it pass. That’s the death of the ego. When someone can make you feel good or bad, it’s all ego. Let it pass. All emotions are evil, and they’re not you; they come from thoughts. 
  43. 1:37:34 If courage doesn’t exist, how are you in your position? It’s not me, but the Father in me; He’s making me whole, destroying my delusions and illusions. Become whole. The theme today was courage… overcome the idea of courage. 
  44. 1:39:24 Pray, watch, stop protecting the ego, the Devil… Stop having this fantasy about Jesus; he’s our brother. “Greater works shall you do,” he said. You can return to the Father; most don’t want to. They love misery, complaining, being mad. Wish them Hell, go live your life. Don’t cater to anyone’s emotions. 
  45. 1:40:52 (Men, stop catering to anyone’s emotions) Whatever you’re feeling is your fault. 
  46. 1:42:00 END
