7:00 am
that step of faith and he helps us get to where we need to be. but if we stand out here waiting to feel something, then we can be waiting forever because faith is the substance of things that we don't see and the substance of things that we don't feel. it's actually, the bible says, evidence. it's a spiritual evidence that we can put our confidence in god. and, you know, there are all kinds of people who march off to church every sunday and never ever, ever learn how to exercise or release their faith. faith is a force that resides on the inside of us and i think that we can release it three ways, by praying, by saying and by doing. by praying in faith, by saying something in faith. i always talk about
7:01 am
the importance of confessing god's word out loud. if we don't learn how to stop saying how we feel and what we think and start saying what god says, we're always gonna be in trouble. i don't think i ever do a seminar of any kind, anywhere, that somewhere in that seminar, and possibly several places, i talk about the importance of getting into agreement with god verbally and confessing the word of god out loud. and i can prove it to you many, many, many different places in the bible. so faith is released. when i say i believe i have favor everywhere that i go, that's a scripture. and if i say that, it helps renew my mind again that i can trust god. i can release my faith when i go out of the house for god to give me favor everywhere that i go and make special things happen in my life.
7:02 am
>> [applauding] >> joyce: but i was with somebody the other day and they didn't get the parking place they wanted and this was what they said, "that figures. that's my luck." >> [laughing] >> joyce: i thought, "well, i hope you're around me long enough for me to change that attitude." 'cause you know what? that's the attitude that the world has and the attitude that i had for a long time, but we can actually release our faith for god to show us favor and do things for us that will leave our mouth hanging open in awe, little things and big things. and to be honest with you, sometimes i even get more excited about the little things than i do some of the big things. how many of you love to just watch god just be with you in your daily life and just make things happen that you know is god just saying, "i'm here, i'm here." >> [applauding] >> joyce: and to be honest with you, when i think about all the year, years and years,
7:03 am
that i went to church and i loved god. and, yes, i heard about trusting god for salvation and i believed in that and believe i was saved, i would have gone to heaven if i would have died, but i didn't really know anything about faith, not real faith. not--i mean, i knew about faith for salvation, but i didn't know about this wonderful gift of faith that god has given us that can bring healing into our life and can help us live free from guilt and condemnation and can enable us to do great things, things that we don't even know how to do. and i just want to encourage you not to ever get lazy and just let that wonderful gift of faith lie dormant in you while you stand around and wait for some feeling to motivate you to do what you should be doing by faith. and if we're doing it by faith, remember that usually means that we're doing it without
7:04 am
feeling and, quite often, without seeing the result at that particular moment. the bible says, "when you pray in faith, believe that you receive and you will get it." it doesn't say that you have it yet, but it says, "when you pray, believe that you receive and you will get it." well, what happens between praying, releasing your faith, believing that you receive? what happens between that and when you get it? a lot of patience and a lot of lies from satan. and we're gonna talk all about this. i'm just kind of touching on some of the things that we're gonna deal with here this weekend. so faith does you no good if you don't release it. you release your faith by praying, by saying.
7:05 am
i mean, you can release your faith all day long just by learning how to confess the word of god out loud. you get up in the morning and say, "god loves me. i'm the righteousness of god in christ. my sins are forgiven. this is gonna be a great day. something good's gonna happen to me today. something good is gonna happen through me today." well, that's kind of a different way of praying. i remember dave saying to me one time--and, you know, god deals with different people in different ways, but i remember dave saying one time, "faith is prayer." and i knew what he meant. like when--just that simple, "i trust you, god." that's prayer. but so often we make such a big ordeal out of prayer and we complicate it and we legalize it to the point where we do it out of duty, but we don't really enjoy it.
7:06 am
prayer is powerful. it changes things, but we have to pray in faith. now, i believe that we all have, probably, a lot more fears, little ones, lots of little ones maybe some big ones. usually if they're big ones, you know they're there. but i think that we probably all have lots of little fears that we have just gotten used to and we have put up with for so long that we, maybe, don't even realize that we have them. what do you think of that? you think that's possible? how many of you think that may be possible? i wonder how many times we kind of think, "oh, i think i'll do that," and then a fearful thought comes and we just go, "oh, no, i won't do that." and we don't even really stop to say, "well, god, is that something you want me to do?" because when the bible says, "fear not," it's not saying don't feel fear.
7:07 am
it actually means when you feel fear, don't let it stop you. courage is not the absence of fear. it's pressing forward in the face of fear. so we need to learn how to-- if i'm going to do something and this fearful thought comes, i need to think about what i'm thinking about and realize that that's the devil probably just trying to keep me from something that god wants me to do. and i can address it right then and say, "i'm not gonna live in fear. i will not live in fear." that's a talk-out-loud time. "i will not live in fear because god is with me," and just right on going. just keep right on going. i tell you what, i am mad at the devil because he is stealing people's destinies through fear. and i don't want you to let the devil steal your destiny. i want you to possess
7:08 am
the promised land, not just go to church and hear about it and talk about it all your life and pray about it, but never really live in the promises of god. i want you to enjoy god and enjoy yourself and enjoy the people around you and do all that you can possibly do with your life for the glory of god. but fear will hinder every bit of that. it's probably pitiful if we would know, if we could pile it all up in a pile, everything that the devil has stolen from everybody in this room corporately through fear. we would be absolutely so aggravated at ourselves for letting the enemy do that. yes, i said letting the enemy do that. there's only one attitude that a christian can have toward fear that is acceptable to god and it is very simply this, "i will not fear. i will not fear."
7:09 am
now once again, that doesn't mean you won't feel fear. if you don't understand the difference in what i'm talking about, the next time you feel fear you're gonna think, "well, it didn't work for me." >> [laughing] >> joyce: matter of fact, i'm gonna really take a step of faith here and say something, i don't even know that i think you can pray fear away. you know what i think happens when you pray? i think that you should pray that god will give you courage to confront fear when it comes your way. you know why? because satan is always going to try to keep us from going forward, always. what did the apostle paul say in 1 corinthians 16:9, "a wide door of opportunity has opened unto me and with it many adversaries." new level, new devil. that's just the way it works.
7:10 am
>> [applauding] >> joyce: we pray for promotion and we forget that we're gonna get something along with the promotion. a wide door of opportunity opened unto me and with it many adversaries. don't ask god for something if you're not ready to pay the price to have it. sometimes we ask for god for something, he tries to give it to us and we're like... >> [laughing] >> joyce: "well, i don't understand what's going on." well, it's just the devil trying to scare you. so you need to say, "i will not fear." as long as you know in your heart that what you're doing is what you believe that god is leading you to do or has asked you to do or if it's something in the word of god, then you need to make sure you keep pressing forward. fear means to run from, to take flight. and there are so many different kinds of fears.
7:11 am
i mean, i--i looked them all up in a dictionary one time and looked them up in an encyclopedia and it's the fear of this and the fear and the fear and the fear and this phobia, phobia, phobia, phobia, phobia. and, you know, i'm gonna preach to myself this weekend as well as you because i don't think that i'm a real fearful person but i do know that there are little fears that i probably put up with in my life and i don't want to because i don't believe that god wants us to have fear of any kind. i believe he wants us to be bold, courageous, confident and full of faith. bold, courageous, confident and full of faith. he wants us to walk with our head up, not hanging down. he wants us to walk with purpose, not shuffle around like we don't-- >> [laughing] >> joyce: doesn't want our hands hanging down. he wants us alert. he doesn't want us inactive because of fear. he wants us active and giving the devil a nervous breakdown every day.
7:12 am
>> [applauding] >> joyce: "i will not fear. i will not fear. what can man do unto me? if god be for me, who can be against me? if god is on my side, whom shall i fear?" >> [applauding] >> joyce: hallelujah. "but joyce, i don't know what's gonna happen." who does? i don't either. and you know what? even if you think you know, you probably don't. >> [laughing] >> joyce: "well, god told me." yeah, well, he may have told you what's gonna happen, but i bet he didn't tell you when. >> [laughing] >> joyce: and so you'll get tested just like everybody else. "oh, you made that up. god didn't tell you that. it's never gonna happen. you might as well forget it." >> [laughing] >> joyce: how much fear do we really permit in our lives?
7:13 am
father, i pray right now in jesus' name that any kind of fear that we're permitting in our lives, through laziness or because we've just put up with it so long, we don't even recognize what it is anymore, i pray that you'll reveal it to us and that one by one, we would resist and stand against fear until we are completely free from its torment. in jesus' name, amen. mark 11 is gonna be kind of our founding scripture here this weekend. i want to say this to you enough that you'll leave with it ringing around in your heart. mark 11:22. isn't it so much fun to be together this weekend? >> [applauding] >> joyce: "and jesus, replying, said to them,
7:14 am
have faith in god [constantly]." i love that. now we can go on and read, "truly i say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the sea!" see you gotta say something. "and does not doubt," we're gonna deal with that tomorrow night, "at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him. for this reason i am telling you, that whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it]." >> [applauding] >> joyce: and i might as well throw this in for good measure. "and--" "well, just, just stop there, joyce." "and whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone--" if you have anything against anyone, anything against
7:15 am
anyone-- "forgive him, leave it, drop it, let it go. so that your father in heaven may forgive you your sins and your trespasses leaving them and letting them go." might as well read 26, but-- >> [laughing] >> joyce: i tell ya, it's the ands, the ifs and the buts in the bible that we--just make all the difference in the world. "but if you do not forgive, neither will your father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings." now, you know, there's no mystery to that. that doesn't need understanding or interpretation. doesn't even need revelation. if you are mad about anything at anybody, offended, bitter, resentful, no matter what it is. you say, "well, joyce,
7:16 am
that cannot include what's been done to me." >> [laughing] >> joyce: you know why? because you don't want your faith not to work because of hanging on to some feeling and being mad at somebody who's probably out having a good time and don't even care that you're upset. >> [applauding] >> joyce: amen? >> [applauding] >> joyce: some of you are even mad at people that are dead. >> [laughing] >> joyce: now how dopey is that? >> [laughing] >> joyce: that's sure not gonna help. have faith in god constantly. i love that. that doesn't say, "have faith until there's an unexpected problem, maybe a big one.
7:17 am
have faith until you have to wait a long time for what you need god to do. have faith until life isn't fair. have faith until somebody treats you wrong. have faith until your enemies appear to be more blessed than you are." there's no until. i love what dave says about faith. he says, "the only end, the only godly end, to faith should be the manifestation of what you're believing for." >> [applauding] >> joyce: amen? in other words, if i'm believing god for a car i need and i get the car i need, then i don't have to have faith for that anymore. now i can use my faith
7:18 am
on something else. but until i have the manifestation, the only thing that should ever keep me from believing is not how long i wait, not how hard it is, not the lies of satan. the only thing that should ever stop me is if i get the manifestation. and even if we die believing god for something that we never did actually get in reality, god will be pleased. >> [applauding] >> joyce: now you ain't too excited about that. >> [laughing] >> joyce: see, right then when i said that, you got afraid. >> [laughing] >> joyce: "you mean i'm not gonna get it?" >> [laughing] >> joyce: but see, here's the thing. now, look at me, let me tell you something. it's not actually getting what we want that makes us happy. it's the whole attitude of faith that we live in
7:19 am
and it's in trusting god that we find joy and peace. romans 15:13 says, "joy and peace are found in believing." it doesn't say, "joy and peace are found in getting everything you want." so you can be just as happy if you have a heart full of faith as you would if you actually had the thing. and i know you probably don't believe that, but, it's true. we make ourselves miserable while we wait. you can wait with doubt and unbelief or you can wait with a heart of faith saying, "god, i believe you're working right now and i believe that you're not a man that lies and i believe that you can't be late. and i believe if this is what i'm supposed to have, you're gonna get it to me and nobody's gonna stop you." >> [applauding] >> joyce: and then and then you could add this, "and god, if you don't want me to have it, then i want it." >> [applauding]
7:20 am
>> joyce: 'cause the truth is now, listen, i mean if you've prayed in faith and you're willing to wait and what you've asked for is something that god wants you to have, then what's there to worry about? 'cause nobody can stop him. nobody. >> [applauding] >> joyce: no devil, nobody. nobody. >> joyce: well, 1 john 4:18 teaches us that perfect love casts out fear. and, you know, you can have confidence that god has a perfect love for you. he has a perfect love for all of us and he is working out everything on our behalf, even when it doesn't look like it. now i want you to remember that. even though, maybe, your circumstances today don't look that great, god loves you and he has a good plan for you and he is working behind the scenes bringing that good plan to pass.

7:29 am
you're going back to your works. i'm hearing, even on christian television, people saying things like, "don't think you'll make heaven. don't think you'll make it to heaven," all right? and it's back to your lifestyle again. let me just tell you this, okay, lifestyle is important because it tells you you belong to jesus. it tells you you are saved. but let me just say this, once you are saved, the blood of jesus is not like the blood of bulls and goats. the blood of bulls and goats cover your sins for one year. the blood of jesus washes your sins forever. amen? the blood of bulls and goats provide redemption in a temporal sense, all right, for a year, but the blood of jesus, the bible tells us in hebrews, has obtained for us eternal redemption. amen. jesus says of those who believe on him, "i give them eternal life and they shall never perish." what is it about never that we don't understand? "oh, pastor, but if they go back into sin, what is it?" everybody sins after
7:30 am
they are saved. we don't encourage that, all right, but let me just tell you this, if you talk about a sin can cause someone to lose their salvation, then i have two questions for you; what sin will cause them to lose their salvation? number two, how many times, who predicts, alright, who can say how many times then they lose their salvation? amen. if the first adam, when he sinned, he made the whole world, everyone who was born after him became sinners by his sin, amen? they sin not because, all right, they have a problem, they want to rebel against god. it is already in their blood because of adam's sin, so adam's sin made everyone sinners. you follow me so far? how is it that a sinner cannot renounce his position as a sinner? can a sinner renounce his position? let's say a sinner does not want
7:31 am
to receive jesus, all right, to obtain salvation but he says that "well, i hear that adam made me a sinner so i renounce by my free choice." some people say, "well, pastor prince, people have a free choice." okay, let's use that reasoning. a sinner has a free choice. can a sinner, using his free choice, renounce his sinnerhood? can that happen? no, that means free choice cannot undue what the first adam did. and we are saying that free choice can undue what the last adam, jesus christ, did. something is terribly wrong. church, what the first adam did is more powerful than what the last adam did. the last adam is jesus christ, all right? we say the last adam because the bible uses that word second adam, all right, and he is the federal head of the human race, just like the first adam was. so i'm here to tell you when the bible says they shall never perish, they shall never perish.
7:32 am
and then jesus goes on to say that "my father is greater than all and no one can pluck them out of my father's hand," all right? and the word "man" there is in italics in your bible. it is not no man. it is man, demons, devil, yourself. no one means no one can pluck him out of his hands, all right? no one can pluck himself even out of his hands. can i have a good amen? so we are secure. it is only when you are secure that it affects your performance, it affects your lifestyle. amen. we want a lifestyle of holiness. holiness means set apart. people must look at you and see a difference in your life. amen? that is to glorify jesus, the one who died for you, the one who loved you, gave his life for you, but it is not a necessity for your salvation, which is eternal. amen, church? all right, we are saved and saved forever because of
7:33 am
the blood of jesus. amen? so this is dangerous. when we start saying that you can lose your salvation, then people are insecure. they do not know "at what point i'll lose my salvation, which sin will cause me to lose my salvation." so these people will have this so-called audience of theirs under their control to say whatever they want to say so that they will step in line, all right, and use that a leverage. i don't believe that. i believe that the gospel of jesus christ-- "well, pastor prince, the bible says what shall we say then? shall we sin more that grace may abound?" that is exactly what they accuse the apostle paul of and that's what people accuse me of. and i'm so glad i'm accused of the same accusation that paul was accused of because many preachers are not accused of the same accusation. if you are accused of the same accusation, probably you are preaching the same gospel paul preached. amen, church? and the apostle paul says this in romans chapter 1, all right?
7:34 am
and by the way, his answer is god forbid or in the original, it says, "may it never be." it cannot be, all right? if you believe you are saved and justified by faith, amen, the fruits of it is a holy lifestyle. now, doesn't mean perfect lifestyle, doesn't mean that you will not fall into sin, but your heart is for god. it's one thing about someone who delight in their sins, have no compunction about living in sin, enjoy living in sin, compared to someone who is in sin, they know they're in sin, but every day they're groaning that they're in sin. in their heart, they don't like it, all right, anymore than a sheep found in the mud enjoys it the way a pig does, but a sheep will never enjoy the mud. amen? so there are people in the mud. they need help. amen? but they're not enjoying what they--because they are saved. can i have a good amen? so i don't know why i'm saying all this but, you know, it's important that you hear this.
7:35 am
and i get angry sometime because people don't understand, you know, they think that "well, it's up the you whether you believe once saved, always saved. you know, some people are armenian and calvinistic." it's not a matter of that. go back to the bible and study for yourself. when jesus says, "i give them eternal life," what is eternal life? until your next sin? you don't play around with language, folks. amen. if jesus didn't obtain for us eternal life, if he said they shall never perish, but they could perish, he should told us, all right? now it's one thing to be in church and you are a professor, professing salvation, all right, compared to a possessor of salvation. we can't tell what is saved and who is not, that's true. but if something lives like the devil, i question whether he's born again, whether she's born again. they might have a cross, they might say they are christians, but they are professors, not possessors. that's a different story.
7:36 am
but true possessors of salvation cannot enjoy sin. all right, they might enjoy it for a while, but they always come up groaning and, "why did i do that? why?" that is a true believer. romans 1, "i'm not ashamed of the gospel of christ." paul says, "i'm not ashamed of the god news of christ, for it is the power of god unto salvation." and i've said this again and again, all right, and it bears repeating, i will proclaim this and i will proclaim the gospel until jesus returns. amen. the gospel is good news and whenever you believe the good news, something happens to you, the power of god is released into your life for your salvation. now, you must understand one thing, salvation in the bible, all right, is not just saved from hell. it's not just saved from eternal destruction and that's why some people, they have this idea and they misinterpret the bible saying things like, when they say the word "saved," it's always referring to saved
7:37 am
from hell, going to heaven. for example, he that endures to the end, shall be saved. "you see, pastor prince, it's those who endure to the end shall be saved." are you sure you're enduring? so the word "saved" there for them is that those who endure, they'll be saved from hell. now you're putting it back salvation by works, all right? what it's saying for the jews of that day is that if they endure on, they'll be delivered because jesus christ is coming back, because the word "saved" is also deliverance and preservation from danger and destruction. when jesus told the woman who touched him, all right, who got healed, jesus turned around and the greek says, "your faith has sozoed," where you get the word "salvation." the word salvation is soteria, the big word, the noun, but the shorter version is sozo. your faith has sozoed you. it's used for healing. it's used for deliverance. it's used for salvation. it's used for anything that says temporal and eternal. so you cannot look at every verse and say, "well,
7:38 am
he that endures to the end. now the criteria is endurance." well, are you sure you're enduring? now you got a problem, right or not? he's talking about the end times when the jews in jerusalem and all that, jesus says, "flee to the mountains," and all that, jesus talk about, "he that endures till the end shall be saved." it's not referring to saved from hell, going to heaven. he's saying, "if you endure, you--i'll return and you'll be saved." amen? and that's in the context of the signs of times. read it up, okay? so if you believe the good news, something happens to you, god releases the power of god, and the word "power" there in the greek is dunamis. god releases his dynamite in your life and that dynamite will save you in whatever areas of your life need saving. if you are sick, all right, and you believe the good news, the power of god is released to save you in that area. if you got mental oppression, you're always oppressed, you are depressed, when you believe the good news, the power of god is released to save your mind.
7:39 am
amen. turn to your neighbor and say, "you need this, brother." i remember years ago, many years ago now, when i was a teenager and i believed the gospel. i was saved in my church then. i was a youth leader. i mean i was studying the bible. i was reading the word. i was on fire for jesus, but i believed a lie, thanks to some preachers that i was reading after. they left the impression that yes, the unpardonable sin, all right? by the way, that's another teaching altogether. you cannot find any sin that god can not forgive in the writings of paul, all right? now people compare jesus' writings and paul's writings. they say, "matthew, mark, luke and john are jesus' words." paul's letters are jesus' words,
7:40 am
the difference is that matthew, mark, luke and john are jesus' words in a limited way. he's there as a prophet to the house of israel. he said at the end of his life, "i have many things to say unto you, but you are not yet able. but when the holy spirit comes, he will guide you into all truth." so actually what jesus said to the jews in matthew, mark, luke and john are very limited, it's baby, baby food, so to speak. but jesus who was raised from the dead ascended and glorified, raised the apostle paul gave him strong meat. amen? and the letters of paul himself says, "are not my words, but they are the words of the living god." so if we have our bibles in red, we should not just have it in matthew, mark, luke and john, but all the letters of paul, as well as all the letters of peter, james, john. amen. amen? i say paul specifically because
7:41 am
paul is an apostle to the sinners and also to the believers who are non jews, gentiles. the rest are apostles, peter, james and john are apostles to the jews. are you with me so far? and i remember as a young man, i believed i could commit the unpardonable sin. i said that to say this, that the unpardonable sin was before jesus died, all right? now jesus said that, that in the age to come when he returns, when he deals with the jews again, this thing will be revived again. you cannot reject jesus christ continually, all right, that sin will apply. but in between, all right, the dispensation of grace which now we are in, all right, there is no unforgiven sin. in fact, you cannot commit that sin. you know why? because unpardonable sin is a constant rejection of jesus christ, rejecting the holy spirit's appeal, all right, for you to accept jesus. you constantly reject him, at
7:42 am
a certain point you become hard and there are people who have become so hard, they cannot feel anymore, you know, conviction and that's sad. anyway, you understand, you cannot commit that sin if you're a possessor of eternal life. and all the possessors of eternal life said? the bible says language like in paul's letters, "having forgiven you all trespasses." there is no warning from paul that there is a sin that is unforgiven, no such thing, all right, for the church, okay? rest easy. so when i started believing that i could commit the unpardonable sin and the devil convinced me that i have committed the unpardonable sin, guess what. i started manifesting mental problems. now some of you are saying, "now i know. that explains it," all right? i really, really thought that, you know, i would lose my mind. i went for prayer, for help, went to this man of god, went to this pastor, went to this person. i really wanted someone
7:43 am
to pray for me. someone says i was demon possessed. i said, "okay. cast the devil's out." so i went for deliverance here. i went for deliverance there. one guy put his hand on my stomach yelled, "come out all your tribes." and i went for somebody else, you know, and he told me to cough, i coughed, whatever it is, whatever it takes to set me free. and no one ever told me, "what are you believing?" and it all happened because i believed i could commit the unpardonable sin and the devil convinced me i had committed the unpardonable sin. so i went down orchard road, got people saved. they were all saved and many of them had tears in their eyes when they got saved. i will go down there and witness, pass tracks, witness to them and they got saved. there were tears in their eyes but i believed that i was going to hell. i just hope that when these people go to heaven, god will see them and god asks, "who got your saved?" all right, they--and they say, "joseph prince," then god will remember me in hell. that was really my reasoning because as far as i was
7:44 am
concerned, i was gone. nobody ever asked me, "what do you believe?" i can tell you, any area of unsoundness, any area where it's not saved, that to that extent, either you have heard something about the gospel, something good but you don't believe it, or you have not heard the gospel 'cause every time you hear the gospel, it is the power of god to your salvation. can i have a good amen, church? because this is something crucial that we need to settle once and for all. "pastor prince, everywhere they are preaching the gospel of christ." thank god more and more are hearing what the gospel really is. but what is the gospel of christ? what is the gospel that paul preached that released in power of god unto salvation? the next verse says, "for in this gospel, in it, the righteousness of god is revealed," which is a gift. amen? but today's gospel, when i hear some people preach the gospel, man's sin is revealed all the time. now, there is a place to talk
7:45 am
about man's sin, but it's not the revelation of the gospel, the revelation of the gospel in that gospel, the gift of righteousness is revealed from faith to faith. amen? i mean, you don't tell people how bad they are, they know how bad they are. their wives tell them all the time. amen? what they need to know is that there is a gift available that can make them righteous in spite of their performance and if the gift is received, it will affect their performance even. amen? praise god. you know, people have wrong ideas about god and even preachers. so i'm letting go right now. i'm going all the way, okay, church? all right, i'm telling you right now the problem is that-- you know i love preachers. i'm a preacher myself but, i'm here to tell you that some of the bondage that people are in is because of erroneous preaching, and we need to own up. this idea to get, you know, make people feel insecure when god
7:46 am
has given them all kinds of assurance. these things are written that you may know you have eternal life. and then we are telling people, you know, we cannot say that we are saved. no one knows for sure. imagine my daughter. i tell my daughter i'm bringing her to the zoo this saturday, all right? and then someone comes to her and says, "did your dad tell you that he's bringing you to the zoo?" "well, i dare not say my dad says he's bringing me to the zoo lest i be found a liar. i hope he will bring me." now, by saying that she doesn't realize she's making me a liar. are you listening, all right? no, jessica will say, "if my dad says it, it's good." amen? "i know my dad's word. i'm preparing already to go." amen? "i'm getting a new kind of like attire whatever it is 'cause we're gonna have fun. we're gonna get wet over there." amen? so the thing is this, church, we don't realize by trying to be fake, you know, in a quasi humble way, you know, we are--
7:47 am
we are actually maligning god. hmm? "well, pastor prince, let go, pastor." yes, i am. i want to tell you a beautiful story, and this story's in my heart but we are in the time of the tabernacle of david. we are in a season of the key of david. like i said before, the year-- this year's theme is the key of david. and if you say, "well, pastor prince, why do we have a theme anyway? you know, every day is christmas. every day is grace. instead of saying the year of grace, why do we have a theme?" you don't understand. you don't understand human nature and as a pastor, as a leader, as a preacher, we need to understand human nature. people can focus only on one thing at a time. another thing is that when there's a theme and it happens during that year, they are able to give god praise and worship, all right? and they know that it's a theme of the year. god is working. they can see god working, opening doors, shutting doors, opening doors, shutting doors.
7:48 am
amen. you know, the thing is that if you use that reasoning on your wife saying that "every day, darling, every day is special with you, darling. every day is anniversary." and then she don't see any special, you know, gifts and flowers or restaurants, you know, that kind of dining her and flirting with her, wooing her, it's just words. how many of you know that god wants us to celebrate, all right, our special occasions because it means a lot. even the patriarchs, they would have an altar at different seasons of their life. all right, you can say put and altar everywhere. no, to commemorate a special time. so likewise, the theme of year for this church--i cannot speak for other churches, this church, is a year of open doors and closed doors. open doors, doors that are good for you. so when you see it happen, you know that god is working in the church and not only in the church, in your life and you're able to give him praise and worship. and god used the word "key of david," so we are
7:49 am
going back to the story of david and we are looking at a lot of truths there. and the truth i want to share with you real quick is the story of david and his understanding of covenant. you know when god makes a covenant with you, it is this, the idea of covenant, god says in psalms 89, "my covenant i will not break, nor alter the thing that has gone out of my lips, or the word that's gone out of my lips." god does not break covenant. today, we don't have an understanding of covenant because we are people that go by contract. now contract is not covenant, all right? when you break a contract, you pay a penalty, a fine, usually, all right, it might be even imprisonment or whatever. but a covenant, when you break a covenant, you die. so a covenant is something they use in ancient times, especially in israel, all right? and they call it covenant of blood, all right? in hebrew, beriyth, covenant. what they do is that if two persons cut a covenant, okay
7:50 am
what they do is that they do a small incision on their wrist, all right, and the other person cut his wrist, they will join their wrists together, now their blood flow as one. and then they will exchange, all right, their garments. they will take off their outer jacket, pass it to the other person. the person will pass his jacket over, which means your position, "i'm a beggar, you're a prince, now i have your jacket. i'm no more a beggar, i'm a prince." exchange of positions, amen. >> announcer: thank you for tuning into our broadcast. you have watched highlights of a sermon by joseph prince. to order an audio cd of the full sermon, which is approximately 60 minutes long, call the toll-free number at 1-877-901-4300 or log onto now. >> announcer: next on "destined to reign." >> jonathan is a picture of yonathan in hebrew. the name means a gift of god.

man: ♪ love my dog, love my dog, love my dog, love my dog ♪ alex: here now is today's featured dog tales story. graphic: feature story-- preventing dog bites... alex: most dogs are quite friendly and won't bite. but always assume that a dog could bite unless you know him well. ifaw, the international fund for animal welfare, offers the following good advice: always ask the dog's owner before you pet a dog you don't know, and approach the owner, not the dog, without making direct eye contact with the pooch because he or she may think you're challenging them. if an owner says it's ok to pet the dog, offer the dog your closed fist a few inches from his nose, and try crouching down to his level, if you're an adult. if he sniffs it, then try scratching his chest or back. don't thump the dog on top of its head like you're dribbling a basketball. and only
8:30 am
have one person pet a dog at a time. it's overwhelming for most dogs to be surrounded by a group of people he doesn't know. if a dog doesn't approach you and show interest in your outstretched fist, he may not want to be petted. remember, a wagging tail doesn't always mean the dog is friendly or happy. it actually means the dog is excited. and sometimes, that excitement can lead to a bite. never leave toddldrs and young children unattended with any dog, even your own. toddlers are at particular risk for dog bites because they are on the dog's level, and they tend to make direct eye contact, act differently from most people, and are grabby. don't approach a growling or snarling dog. instead, try to back away without making eye contact. don't try to physically break up a fight between your dog and another dog. you're more likely to get bitten yourself than to stop the attack. and never hit or hurt your dog. this will only make the dog more likely to
8:31 am
bite. if a dog is chasing you, make like a tree--that is, don't run. stand perfectly still. if a dog does start to attack you, turn into a turtle. roll up in a ball with your face on the ground and your hands on the back of your neck. if you've been bitten by a dog and there's any bleeding, you should seek medical attention and make sure that the dog is up to date on his rabies vaccinations. and finally, if your dog bites people or you're worried that he might, seek professional help from a behaviorist or trainer experienced in biting dogs. here's a helpful training tip for all dog owners. graphic: training tip--boundary stay... janine pierce: one kind of stay behavior that we like to teach our dogs is called a boundary stay. it means, "don't come through that doorway," or "don't cross this line." to teach your dog how to do a boundary stay, start in a narrow area, like a doorway, that you can block easily if he tries to make a break for it. have some nice
8:32 am
treats on you. and pick a word, like, "wait there," or maybe, "no dogs." stand on the other side of the doorway, and if he holds back, or especially if he backs up, throw some treats behind him so he learns that staying behind that line is a great place to be. pretty soon, your dog will be eagerly waiting for you to say, "wait there," because he knows he'll get something good for staying back behind those doors you don't want him to go through. graphic: dog tales pet gallery... man: ♪ my friend, where'd you get that silly grin? has it been always there above your chin? and i would do anything, i'd do anything for you, for you and that silly grin ♪

graphic: grooming tip--flea bath... lynda schulke: if your dog has fleas and you'd like to give it a flea bath, you can use one of 2 different kinds of flea shampoos on the market. there's both the pesticidal kind and the natural, herbal kind. they both work. when you get your dog in the tub and you lather it up, one of the main things you need to remember is, using the manufacturer's directions on the bottle, that you need to leave the shampoo on your dog anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes, sometimes even up to 20 on the herbal ones that use a drying technique to kill the fleas. a lot of people, they don't leave the flea shampoo on long enough, and they end up with still-live fleas crawling around on their dog. after you've let your dog soak the required amount of time, make sure you rinse your dog really well. then you can dry your dog with a towel and the normal blow-drying techniques. alex: next up, ask the vet-- questions you want answered, and much, much more on dog tales.

8:58 am
it's not just about weight. you'll be happy. - amazing. - ( applause ) - please welcome the host of "just jenny" on sirius xm and my friend jennifer koppelman hutt. yay! - ( cheers and applause ) - whoo! well, i'm going really slow. - oh, my gosh. - i have to jump off and give you a hug. - hi. - mwah! - you look so cute. - oh, my gosh. well, let's see if i can do this. - hi, guys. - we've known each other for a really long time. we met, actually, in mexico. - in 2004. it was december 2004. - you're crazy that you remember that. - i know. i'm a weirdo. - okay, so 70 pounds on the treadmill. - yes. i mean, i also changed my diet. but yeah, i spent an enormous amount of time-- - okay, you're already going way way way faster than me. and you're on an incline. - all right, i'll lower it. i'll lower it, i'll lower it. - you're showing off. - sorry, i don't mean to be. - so how do you do it and how do you not get bored? - well, i have this thing. it's really inexpensive, by the way. it's called a surfshelf. like 30 bucks. and i hang it over the treadmill and i keep my laptop on it.
8:59 am
so i can surf the web. i always have my cellphone. i have a television. i just do everything on the treadmill. and you go really really slowly, like really slowly. - like how slow? - 2.0, 2.5-- - i'm going 2.6 right now. - so what? but then you raise the incline, and once you start raising the incline-- - to what? - like high. - like how high? - like 10, 11, 12. but you build up into it. initially, just move. - but what caused you to make this change? - um, in 2008, my mother passed away from pancreatic cancer. and-- yeah-- and she was young. she was only 65. and it made me assess my life and that was pretty much the pivotal moment. i was also turning 40. i was 38. and so by 39, i was definitely walking into the mid-life crisis. and this was all part of it. - how long did it take you to lose the weight? and did you have a goal in mind? - my initial goal was to not be obese and to be able to face the number on the scale.
9:00 am
so-- 'cause initially i would get weighed at weight watchers or at my doctor's office. - now are you out of breath at all? - yeah. - you are? - totally. what do you mean? i'm on tv, i'm on a treadmill. there's a room full of people. - yeah, but you look so good, your hair's so good. - yeah, 'cause somebody did my hair and my makeup. hello? - ( chuckles ) - but-- so to answer your question, i initially would have to get on the scale backwards with my ears covered, 'cause, i don't know, i was digital, but i still thought i'd hear something. and then when i was told that i had reached a certain number that classified me as just overweight... - mm-hmm. - ...i thought that was gonna be enough, 'cause i really wasn't thinking that i'd get to be this size a person-- which, by the way, i'm normal-sized, but i'm not hollywood thin. like, people are really thin in l.a. - how has your eating changed now? are you on a diet? is it a lifestyle change? - yeah, sure. yeah, i mean i can't eat everything i want, all the time at all. if i'm gonna eat junk, that's gonna end up my meal. so i try not to do that, but there are definitely days
9:01 am
that it's all just junk food, which-- if i'm gonna have a cupcake, that's gonna be dinner. it just has to be. - so you're a conscious eater... - yes yes. - ...on just everything you put in your mouth. - yes. - and as far as-- you ever not exercise? - do you skip days? - nope. i try to exercise seven. it ends up being six... - okay. - ...just because life can get in the way. - right right. - like a sick kid. if i have to-- there has to be priorities. - what do your kids think of the new you? - the kids? well, as i said, i did go through a little bit of a midlife crisis through all this, so when i first lost weight, i was dressing a little too provocatively. - ( laughter ) - 'cause it was fun! it was like the first time in my life i was like, "hey, i got boobs and i can wear tight clothes!" - what did your daughter think? - ( laughs ) my daughter... was a little concerned. she was more concerned than my husband, who thought it was funny. my daughter was worried i had a boyfriend. - ( laughter ) - and my husband was like, "please, god, let her have a boyfriend."
9:02 am
and my son just wanted me to cover up. he would be happy if nobody ever looked at me. - right right right. so what advice do you have for other women out there that are maybe turning 40 or looking in the mirror and knowing that they're really not healthy? - i think, in all seriousness, i got to such a low place that i really thought either i was gonna die or i was gonna find a way to like myself enough to take care of myself. but it was like it felt like i was gonna die. and i think you have to get to that moment where you realize that you matter and you want to change something in you. and the change can be so small. it doesn't have to be a big deal. it doesn't have to be like, "i'm gonna set out to be a different person, and to look totally like someone else." not even kinda. if you're at the worst possible place, then every day, you're gonna be a little better. just look at it like that. - well, your story is really inspiring. - thanks, ricki. - i'm so happy for you. and i know the treadmill isn't the only thing you do to be fit.
9:03 am

- for most actors, the better your physical condition, the bigger your career. not so for our next guest. he plays a big guy on nickelodeon's "big time rush." take a look at his weight-loss journey. - it was a year ago. i was a successful hollywood actor finishing the second season of my hit tv show "big time rush." but i was in big trouble. at 350 pounds, i was overweight and unhealthy. as an actor, i never felt my weight held me back. in fact it was an asset as i always saw myself as the funny, fat, loudmouth guy. as a stand-up comedian, it worked perfectly. but i was really unhealthy and getting worse. then in october of 2011, i was filming a movie in canada when i had a scary realization. i was on diabetic medication
9:16 am
and i was the heaviest i'd ever been. i knew at that moment i had to change my life. i started working out with eric the trainer and i went on a strict diet plan. it took work, but now a year and a half later and 100 pounds lighter, i'm medication free and i have a new vision of my life. the funny, loudmouth, over-the-top, but healthy comedian. - amazing. please welcome stephen kramer glickman. yeah. amazing. it's a pleasure. - how are you? i'm so good. - good to see you. - i'm sweaty. i'm sweaty. you smell great. don't worry. terrific. you look terrific. - that is incredible. tell everybody how did you do it? was it just eric the trainer motivating you? - he changed my life, man. he changed my life. - you were worried that it would affect your career, losing this weight? - yeah. when you're a big guy and that's what your career has become-- it's like you're the funny, big guy.
9:17 am
- honey, i know it. i was the big girl. - yeah, it's tricky because then you drop it and then what-- who is that person? what kind of career will that person have? i was really afraid to do it because i thought if i did it, i would just lose-- i could lose my job or something. and uh, thank god when i-- when i dropped it, i dropped like 80 pounds when i came back to season three from doing the movie-- - so how long? how long did it take to do 80 pounds? - 80 pounds was like-- - eric: a blur. - it was like that. - no, come on. come on, really? - i think i lost-- i think the 80 pounds went within about 8 months of working out. it was like working out and just changing like my eating-- like everything. it was like-- - so okay. so how hard was that? - it was difficult. but when it comes to weight loss, i grew up during the diet crazes. like i did the weight watchers and jenny craig and all those. all those can-- - we're like soul mates 'cause i did too. - i know. and they're tricky because when you lose--
9:18 am
like those can work for people. i've seen them work for people, but you have to be ready to do it. i just never was ready. like i never wanted to make that kind of change in my life. - what made you ready this time? - i was sick all the time. like i was getting-- like aside from the prediabetic stuff, and having to take my blood sugar, and things just being out of control, i was getting panic attacks all the time. i was getting like heart problems where i was constantly like having chest pains. feeling sick in my stomach all the time. i was getting tonsillitis, which is like a really-- - all this was contributing? - it was all because of being unhealthy. - wow. - i didn't know really like what to do. but it just-- when you've been unhealthy for so long, it just kind of becomes part of your thing. you're like, well, i'm the guy who brings the pills with me whenever i go out.
9:19 am
you get used to it after a while. that's a real danger is getting comfortable in... your... your... being overweight. - you got complacent. - yeah, i got complacent. - and you're a young guy. - yeah, so i had this incident happen that's totally bizarre. my mom and like-- - who's here, who came in from canada. - my mom's here. yay. - hi, mom. - my mom and my sister had been like really behind me, like always kind of like pushing and saying like "you should try to lose weight and your so unhealthy. we want the best for you." i like-- i'd hear it and it would just kind of sit there. and i was out in vancouver, canada. i was shooting "big time movie," which was like a ton of fun to do. but i kept getting sick when i was out there. we were in the middle of the forest somewhere. and i had like a real health scare when we were shooting and i felt terrible. i was in my dressing room. i talked to my mom on the phone.
9:20 am
i was like i feel so bad. i feel so sick. she was like, "you need to lose weight. you need to lose weight." i was like, yeah, when there's a sign for me to lose weight-- i'm a successful actor on a very successful teen show. like i'm okay. when there's a sign, i'll do it. thanks a lot, mom. hung up, got off the phone with her. i'm sitting there in my dressing room. we had these plastic fireplaces in the dressing room... to keep us warm because it's vancouver. it's freezing. my fireplace is on. it's fake though. it's plastic logs. then you hear like a bang. i was like-- i look over and the light's out in the fireplace. i was like, oh, that's weird. that's a weird thing. i go back to my computer and i'm working. then i see it comes back on, the fireplace. - that was a sign? - well, i was like, oh yeah. so i look over at the fireplace and it's on actual fire. - so that was your sign? - yeah. my trailer starting going up in flames. - oh my gosh. five minutes after i talked to my mom on the phone. i was like i need to grab my-- i grab my computer

9:26 am
- i'm making snow angels. oh, the things we do to get the bodies we want. perhaps you're wondering why i'm dressed like the michelin man. it is because i'm about to try a european beauty treatment-- ooh-- that claims to purify my system and improve my wellbeing. it feels kind of tingly too. here to tell us all about it is the owner of the los angeles urban sweat lodge, shape house-- sophie chiche. nice to see you, sophie. - nice to you wrapped-- look at her! - it's awesome. tell me about this contraption. - so we found it in europe. it's a machine that's used for people who've had heart problems. they use the machine because it relaxes your heart by basically doing the job of your heart. while that was happening, they realized
9:27 am
that all these other things were happening. people's skin were improving, and cellulite was going away and calories were burning. - cellulite was going away? - yes, ma'am. - sign my ass up. - absolutely. - wow. - so as-- as it was doing all these-- as it was doing all these wonderful things for your heart and really relaxing, it was also doing all these really incredible things for beauty. so they ended up using the machine for beauty treatments as well. - so how does it work? what i'm feeling is like pressure. it feels like it's getting like your blood pressure taken a little bit. - absolutely. - but not as painful. - no, it's not painful. it's not meant to be painful. but it is exactly the same feeling. it's like: pressure, release, pressure, release. it's gonna move through your body. so at first it's on your arms-- i don't know. right now you are on-- actually your whole body is being pressurized right now. so it's in the relaxing that actually-- your lymphatic system gets a way to push everything out of your system, which is how you detox by doing this. - now you know your stuff. you used to weigh 320 pounds. - yes, ma'am. i'm a soul sister too. - wow. how did you do it? - it's a long journey. i've lost 160,
9:28 am
so it's a long ride. in the beginning it was really more about the emotional, the psychological, aspect of why did i want to be so hidden in my own castle. there were psychological reasons. as i was letting that go, i found all these other ways. i started dancing because my body was releasing weight and i had more energy. pretty much we discovered this technology. so right now we're seeing the lymphatic drainage, which is what you're doing. but there's someone else doing something else in the green room. - right, right, right. yes. - which is where i lost-- my last 40 pounds were lost doing this. - yes. earlier we set up craig on the sweat machine in our green room. he promised to sweat up a storm over the course of the show. let's check in with him now. craig, how's it going in there? hot enough for you? - it's hot. if i had hair, it would be drenched by now. - ( laughter ) - so you're not moving, but yet you're drenched. so it's like a pool of water under you? - so actually yeah. i'm sitting here. i'm actually not too hot. i'm very comfortable. but i can feel-- i'm wearing a sauna suit
9:29 am

9:33 am
- today we are talking about how to make our bodies the best they can be. when stars such as drew barrymore, channing tatum, and fergie want to look and feel amazing for performances and shoots, they turn to our next guest. she's the best-selling author of "the beauty detox solution" and has just released it's eagerly awaited sequel... please welcome kimberly snyder. my new best friend. great to meet you and have you here. okay, so how is your nutritional philosophy different from what we've heard before? - well, it's different in that it focuses on the body as a whole unit. most people just focus on calories, carbs, numbers, but we need to focus on the body and how it works and breaks down the food. so my philosophy is based on energy.
9:34 am
digestion takes a lot of our body's energy. so if we can actually make our body use less energy in digestion, it's easier for our bodies to detox, rebuild our skin, our hair, look better, and have more energy in general. - and you're definitely walking the walk 'cause look at her. right? i mean... - well, anybody can do this. anybody can do this. i have gone through my own transformation as well. - we talked before the show. you're so inspiring. tell us about your famous green smoothie. so this is my going green smoothie. this is what i have all my clients drink. it's what they start their day with and it's really easy to make. you can make it at home. what this does is it gives your body a boost of everything that you need. so it's all the vitamins, the minerals, the enzymes, antioxidants, and fiber. in nature there's fiber in juice in the fruits and vegetables. so we're not taking out the fiber. it's not a juice. to me, these are the real super-foods. they are accessible. they're local. spinach has all these different-- everything has all these different minerals and enzymes. it's all about energy too. it's like we're always looking for caffeine and sugar. you should really be focusing on changing your diet. - ( sad tone ) okay. - and spending all the money on all those different products.
9:35 am
- it just doesn't sound as much fun. - well, try it. try it and you'll see what i mean. - all right. - i know it looks really green, but there is that-- - cheers, cheers-- - there's that fruit component, which really helps to balance it. there's a lot of lemon. so it's actually-- and i'll say-- especially some of my male clients that have hated vegetables, this is a way-- - it's good. i mean it's really good. it's not a margarita, guys. but it's good and it tastes really clean and fresh. you know what it is? the experience-- most people don't last on diets because they don't feel good and they don't have any energy. but when you start having this, you start to feel good. the pounds start to melt off. this is alkalizing your body so you're not holding onto all those acidic toxins-- - that sounds good to me. - distorting your fat cells. so your skin starts to look better. you start to look younger. and that's the experience, which pushes you to keep going. - okay, okay. what else do we have? so here is some great, easy workout and energizing snacks. we have hummus, crunchy veggie sticks. i find with a lot of clients, especially in the afternoon, you want something crunchy. so the veggie sticks act as the carrier for the dip.
9:36 am
hummus is really easy to get. it's a great inexpensive food. it has energizing carbs. it has some protein, a little bit of fat. so it's just a great plant-based snack. - i happen to love hummus. - keep it in the fridge at work. - and tomatoes. i want to talk about kale because i just want to point out that some of the strongest animals on earth such as gorillas eat a completely plant-based diet. so a big misconception that i want to talk about is that you can only get protein from animal products. it's not true. you don't have to be a full vegetarian if you don't want to, but i think most people in general just focus on the animal protein. and they don't focus on eating whole foods anymore. kale is fantastic. it has a ton of amino acids, minerals, calcium that your body can actually assimilate, and retain, and hold on to. - okay. - so you can make kale salad. you could just work more greens into your diet-- - okay. - for energy. now here-- - oatmeal? - well, here we have some coconut water, which is a natural, great, workout drink. now here's one of my favorite energy foods.
9:37 am
- my husband likes that. - have you seen these? - i don't like chia seeds. - well, you know what? chia seeds, if you're looking for energy and if you're looking to lose weight, these are one of your best friends. when you soak them in water-- never have them dry. some people just poor them dry into a smoothie. you have to hydrate them first. that way they form a gel. they swell 15 times their size. soluble and insoluble fiber, which keeps you full. - okay. - so less apt to snack on all those other foods. it just helps... antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, protein. - ( despondently ) okay. - here's a new recipe from my new book. it's a quinoa recipe. it's called my ten-veggie quinoa recipe. - that looks delicious. - it's delicious. it's so easy to make. it has all these different antioxidant-rich vegetables in it. quinoa is a lot of protein. so it's something that you can make. you can pack it for lunch or dinner. it keeps well for about 5 to 7 days. it's something that you can make in a couple minutes. it's really healthy and delicious. - thank you so much. how about a hand for kimberly? kimberly is sending everyone in our audience home with her brand-new book,
9:38 am
the beauty detox foods. you lucky audience. thank you so much. - thank you, ricki. nice to meet you. - it's so great to meet you. i will see you again. - okay. - how does jennifer aniston maintain her lean body? that is the question of the century. up next, her yoga instructor shares some of her body-firming techniques we all can do when we come back. the moves that keep the stars in shape. - now we're gonna go ahead into a temple pose. so you're gonna squat down. - yeah. - right? just visualize yourself. visualize your body, perfect, the way you want to. ricki, i feel like you're gonna levitate. and i'm here to talk about your bums. these are bum-wipes. do you think that would be quite an interesting addition to your dry routine? yes. so you like using them? i do. because you feel... ultimately clean, i guess. you're welcome to borrow my container.
9:39 am

9:40 am
9:41 am
- welcome back. i could not be more excited to introduce you to our next guest. she and i have literally been friends i think ever since i moved to hollywood
9:42 am
when i was 20 years old. she was at my 21st birthday party. you may remember her from such hits as "teen witch," "dirty dancing" the tv series, and on "cheers." she is also the woman behind some of the best bodies in hollywood like jennifer aniston, kate beckinsale, and oscar-winner jennifer lawrence. she has a brand-new book called "yogalosophy: the 28 days to the ultimate mind-body makeover" coming out later this spring. she's one of my best friends for more than 20 years. mandy ingber. yay! - hi. - hi, honey. - hi, baby. - so happy to have you here. it's surreal. - this is awesome. i can't even believe it. - and the fact that you're here to talk about your new book. - i'm so excited to share that with you. - so tell everybody about it. you had a video that was so successful. your yogalosophy video. - yes, which i created. it's actually a yoga hybrid. so it pairs a basic yoga pose with a basic toning exercise. so it's like a yoga workout.
9:43 am
i found-- across the board-- working with celebrities or group classes, which i've been teaching for 20 years, or even myself, the primary thing is really getting your mind in the right place. i'm really into loving your body into shape. - no matter what you look like-- no matter what physical issues you may have? - that's right. you can always start fresh every single day by just-- exercise, for me, is a way to really develop that relationship and to love myself. so i'm really into that. so the 28 days gives you 28 ways to do that. so i'm gonna share that with you. sometimes it's like these goals are so lofty. like losing a lot of weight feels like insurmountable. it's really daunting. so we want to give ourselves little short-term goals that we can accomplish so that we can feel like we're having a win all the time. - yay. - so... - yay. well, okay-- do some poses with me. - okay, okay. so today what we're gonna do is we're actually going to-- in the fitness part of my book, there is a yoga pose component. - ooh, it's like an african tribe vibe. yeah. - yeah, whoo. now i'm getting into a vibe. okay, so there's a yoga pose component.
9:44 am
- okay. - then there is the yoga-hybrid and a cardio activity. so we're going to start in a yoga pose. - okay. - let's start in chair. - somehow you're gonna look a lot better than i do doing this. - well, you know what? it's really about how we feel. so let's kind of sink down into a chair pose. just like you're sinking into an imaginary chair. this is also called lighting bolt. okay, so you want to get into the pose and focus on your breathing. - with my ankles together? - you know what, you can have your feet apart or together. - okay. - okay, so you got choices. - i always like to have choices. - i do too. okay so this is the yoga part so you want to connect with your breathing. you want to connect with your position, the energy in your body. - yeah. now we're imagining that you guys aren't even here. - okay. ( laughs ) so now going to actually step the feet apart. we're gonna go into the toning part of it. you're gonna shove your hips back and then up. squeeze your butt on the way up. so this is how you get that nice toned tush. that little jennifer aniston tushie. - really? is this how she got it? - are you cl-- well, this is how i got mine.
9:45 am
all right, so beautiful. this is the toning part of it. now we're going to add a cardio component. come on, dancing with the stars, come on. dancing with the stars, whoo. okay, so this is gonna get your heart rate up. it's gonna start to pump the blood to your extremities. - i already had my heart rate up with soulcycle. come on. - ( laughs ) - soulcycle? you have to mention soulcycle during my segment too? jeez. all right, so now we're going to go into a temple pose. so you're gonna squat down. good. chest lifted. - i'm good at this one. - and just breathe-- yeah. this is familiar isn't it. we're just gonna hang out here in this position. and just feel the power in your legs. - yeah. - right. and just visualize yourself. visualize your body, perfect, the way you want to. ricki, i feel like you're gonna levitate. - i'm gonna give birth baby. - all right. all right, let's go ahead and give birth to our gorgeous legs. squeeze and lift. so this is the toning part. all right so... beautiful. - what i love about you, mandy, is like you give these amazing intentions and like the positive attitude that you have. - thanks, babe. - i love it. - we're just playing right now. like that's kind of what we're going.

9:51 am
today we've been getting physical. yes, stand up. what's your question? - how would you, the detox person-- how would you alter-- - that's kimberly. - thank you, kimberly, how would you alter the master cleanse diet? - well, there's a lot of different all juice all liquid fasts. the problem with that-- i mean it can help a lot of people. it can definitely be beneficial. at glow bio i have a cleanse designed that has a juice component, but we fortify it with probiotics and you're getting smoothies. you're getting fiber. and you're also getting different boosters because the definition of cleanse is the toxins have to leave the body. so if you've eaten a really acidic diet, and you're kicking it up with all these liquids and different enzymes and you're not pulling it out with a fiber, you can actually reabsorb a lot of the toxins. now you've brought them up to the surface. it doesn't put you on the path for better long-term eating habits. - let me check in. let me check back in with craig who's been sweating under that infrared blanket for an hour. how you feeling, craig? wow. - i feel wet, but i feel great. the last 30 minutes, my heart is racing
9:52 am
like i'm doing an aerobics class. - what you got in the bag? - oh, i got what i collected in sweat and i still have some more right here. - oh my goodness. - but i feel great. totally detoxed here. - that's incredible. well, thank you so much for being our guinea pig. i appreciate it. - my pleasure. - oh my goodness. jenny, what do you do to control the cravings? do you ever cheat on your diet? - of course. - yeah. all the time. but i'm one of those calorie counters. i know it's counterintuitive to what kimberly believes. and by the way, i think what you do is way more correct than what i do. the fact is sometimes i eat junk. but i count everything. - sophie, what can people do to detox if they don't have access to your machines. - seriously read kimberly's book. that's the start. food is one of the places we can learn to let our body detox very naturally. and just use-- as she was sharing with us on the show-- a lot of the foods we can eat that are very accessible can help detox. sweating is the key. sweating is the key. whatever way you get-- even if it's in your bathtub and that's all you can do,
9:53 am
break a sweat in your bathtub. - so i've done something really good for myself this past hour? - you really did. you really did. - okay. stephen, what is the most challenging part of maintaining your weight loss? - well, i love going to the gym and love working with eric, but because i'm shooting my show, "big time rush," right now and we're in our season four, i don't have as much time to go and work out every single day like i used to. so right now i'll go a couple days a week. and then on the off days, i'll go hiking with my girlfriend or i'll go do other stuff to like keep maintaining it-- keep it up. - mandy, what is the key to getting defined arms like yourself and jennifer aniston? - thank you. you know, the sun salutations that you do in yoga are repetitive. you really don't need to use weights necessarily. you can actually use your own body's weight to get the definition. so the sun salutations are really awesome. but just like with anything, if that doesn't feel good to you, you can always get a pair of light weights and just do some light repetitions. it's really what you-- it's really whatever you're attracted to,
9:54 am
you know, that you can do regularly that is gonna make the difference. - it's great to have you all here. thank you so much. i want to thank all of my guests for being here today for getting us all excited about getting into the best shape of our lives. remember to consult a physician before you begin any exercise program. for those of you who are feeling out of touch with your bodies and hesitant to start, i want to quote the immortal words of our supervising producer ianthe jones. you've got to break down in order to have a breakthrough. there you go. thank you for watching. see you next time.
9:55 am
9:56 am
and now, enter the courtroom for judge mathis. plaintiff heather thorson says soon after her 17-year-old son was born, the defendant, his father, disappeared.
9:57 am
heather claims despite the fact that the defendant is a dead-beat dad, her son didn't want his father to go to jail because he wanted a relationship with him. heather's suing because she claims the defendant is $85,000 behind in child support. defendant chad voss admits he abandoned his son after he was born but claims it was because his son was very ill and he didn't know how to handle it. chad said that he was a dead-beat dad and deeply regrets not being there for his children but is currently making payments towards his back support. >> tell me what happened? >> i met chad 18 years ago. we had a child. he was born at 21 weeks of pregnancy. he was 12 ounces. very sick for seven months. chas was in and out of our lives for that period ofnçnwç time. we married briefly for insurance purposes.
9:58 am
chad didn't stick around that long. he came back and stole my car and like the car seat and everything. >> he stole your car? >> no. i don't know that drugs was ever -- >> it had some baby stuff in it. he sold the car seat to some resale shops. >> and you don't know why he would have stolen your car? >> we were going through a divorce at the time. he was moving on. >>?÷!, did you prosecute him? >> no. i was very young. >> how old were you? >> i was 18. >> all right. i might go with that. young and naive and perhaps so emotionally distraught you wouldn't know what to do. yeah, i would hope you would have known if you're perhaps 29, 30, if a man abandons you and comes back and steals your car, he needs to go to jail. [ applause ] >> at any rate, we became divorced. was ordered to úgl= child
9:59 am
support. at that time, chad impregnated another woman and shortly after that another one. he was court ordered to pay $35 a week. never did. during the time he took the car he was prosecuted for stealing a credit card out of the car. that was a receipt left in their from before he purchased it. he was charged with credit card fraud. he was in huber on work release and then he took off. we. heard him for years at this point chad owes me $85,000 in child support. >> if he owes 85,000, he needs to go to jail also. >> let me hear your side, son. let me hear your side. >> back when we first met. we had issues, our son was?ha v ill. i did leave. >> why? >> i wasn't in my right frame of mind. >> you a dope addict, crack head? >> no, sir.
10:00 am
no. >> what was wrong with your mind? >> just a lot of stress of dealing with the sickness of our son. >> so you run from it? >> yes, i ran from it. >> let me make an observation on that. people are confused why we have so many single parents raising children, that's the number one reason because the father feels so inept, feels so ashamed that he's unable to take care of the child, so, instead he goes to a life of alcohol and drugs and leaves the household and so your prime example of someone who ran because you had too much stress that you couldn't handle. but, th].qhdblem i had with men who run from their responsibilities because of a little stress, obviously, the woman can stand up to the stress, and she can stand up and solve all the problems, so -- you can stay there and fight it out. [ applause ]
10:01 am
and i say that, that's important for me to say, because i think we know the majority of the households in the black community have single parents and the women are paid a lot less, and so -- and the men don't pay child support because they don't have jobs and as a result, we have a lot of our young kids on the corners being street kids because they don't have a father there to teach them real manhood, because the father is out here trying to cover up his anger and his disappointment with drugs and alcohol, living the self-destructive life himself. so, you ran off and left your family because you couldn't deal with the anger and the stress and what does that lead to? >> well, part of what started that is i was held in contempt for child support because i wasn't paid well, i was residing in wisconsin. i was also on probation for the credit card theft that she was talking. one of the many mistakes i made. >> you had to be on dope.
10:02 am
was you a crack head or something? i never seen anybody do this in their right mind. >> were you an alcoholic? >> i did drink pretty much back then. . you drank every day, all day, but you weren't an alcoholic? >> no, i wouldn'tñ>@d drink al daye, every day. go ahead. sir. >> then i fled to another state. i took off an tried to live another life. live somebody i wasn't. >> what did you become? >> a dead-beat father is what i -- >> you said you were living a life. >> lie. >> as time went by, i had met and got into another relationship we had moved from where we were at to indiana which was a little bit closer and things were bothering me. because i knew that i was always looking over my shoulder. i always had that song in my
10:03 am
mind. >> what bothered you? >> getting in trouble for child support. >> that's the only thing that bothered you about this situation? >> no. not the only thing. >> announcer: more judge mathis when we return. >> the family has been a lot of trouble since we moved on the block. he's going all hour, sometimes all night. >> you nosey. how do you know this is going on all night. pwhen this man is coming and going. >> let me explain. we're the block committee. i'm one of the block committee. >> you're nosey. >> no, we're not nosey. >> how much time did he get? that's what i'm interested in. >> how much time did he get? >> i stood up in court and asked them not to put him in jail, he has four kids in wisconsin, and others. i didn't want the kids to go through that. that wouldn't be fair to any of them. >> tough love with emphasis on
10:04 am
the love. what do you think? i'm naive to the came? >> i don't know how big you think you are in your house but you're very small in the eye of the hershey's s'mores. pure chocolate goodness that brings people together. when the chocolate is hershey's life is delicious. so, if you're sleeping in your contact lenses, what you wear to bed is your business. ask about the air optix® contacts so breathable they're approved for up to 30 nights of continuous wear. serious eye problems may occur. ask your doctor and visit for safety information and a free one-month trial.

10:06 am
the problem i have with men who run from their response acts because of a little stress, dis:g%=um1e"át woman can stand p to the stress and she can stand up and solve all the problems, so -- >> plaintiff, heather thorson, has a 17-year-old son with the defendant and she claims he abandoned their son after he was born and is currently $85,000 behind in child support. >> is this the son? >> can i say something? >> is this the son that you're talking about? >> yes. yes, it is. >> please tell them that you were alcohol addicted or something and you weren't in your right mind. i would hate for this young man to think that you was that weak.
10:07 am
and that inconsiderate that when you did leave, the primary thing that concerns you was going to jail for child support, not the polite of my son, the relationship i don't have with my son. none -- i hate i'm not able to go to baseball games, i hate i'm not able to go to his basketball games. i hate he's not able to go to elmen industry and high school graduations. that's not what you headed. you hated looking over your shoulder because you had to play child support. man, you are the worst. what did you have to say, man? >> before chad left in hubert. he made three other kids in milwaukee. and she's 165,000 in arrears just in wisconsin. and he's been down this entire time. i proceeded to try to find chad
10:08 am
throughout the years because my son does have medical issues that were pretty pertinent to his early birth. finally chad was arrested and chargedith seven counts of failure to support a child. >> executed, he came back to life. >> i'm soefrmt. >> you say he was executed? >> yeah. i did. that's what i was hoping, but -- >> go ahead. >> he was brought back to jail. my son didn'tqq4/a want to see t that time. but my son was obviously excited to get to know who his father was. >> how much time did he get? that's what i'm interested in knowing. >> i stood up in court for my son's request and asked them not to put my son in jail. he has not just four kids in wisconsin but he has others. so i didn't want the kids to have to go through that. that wouldn't be fair to any of them. and it wasn't going to help me get the money. when brad was growing up, it
10:09 am
wasn't about the money. it was more about his health. now it's kind of about the money because he's growing up, he wants to go to college, he's joining the military. he's in civil air patrol. [ applause ] >> i learned a lot about you, young man. you overcame some tremendous obstacles. that says a lot about you. >> thank you. >> we were hoping for the best. when chad came back, we were hoping for a little different results. chad has not been the most dependable. >> he hasn't been the most dependable? oh, you don't say. >> you would think after everything that went and happened you would think -- you know, all these kids are giving him a second chance here in wisconsin. and he was left out. >> what else do you want to say, sir? >> i do feel horrible for what i did. and i'm glad that you am able to
10:10 am
try to have the second chance. i still made some mistakes. >> are you paying child support? >> yes, sir, i am paying child support. i love him to death. i just -- >> when did you begin trying to redeem yourself? >> when did you begi i tried ren i got arrested back in january 2009. >> okay. what have you been doing since that time? >> there's a small percentage that's garnished on my paycheck on a weekly basis. a small percentage goesfe,q0 to the arrearages. the rest goes to current child support. and -- >> what type of association have you had with your children? >> i still have made mistakes. i'm not perfect. i'm trying. i am there. i missed a very important situation with my son in june, because i could not take off work. i asked my boss if i could be there and was told i couldn't take off. >> what shift do you work?
10:11 am
