This past weekend, Bishop T.D. Jakes hosted his annual MegaFest in Dallas, Texas. The weekend included seminars and performances by some of the entertainment industries most influential artists. To conclude the weekend, Bishop Jakes, the Pastor of The Potters House, received a substantial donation by one of the church’s biggest supporters, Tyler Perry. Tyler explained that the Holy Ghost spoke to him and told him to donate $1 million dollars to The Potters House. Bishop Jakes, then made the announcement that their ministry needed to raise exactly $1 Million dollars to build a youth center. Tyler was then asked to share his testimony and the Holy Spirit moved him to start speaking in tongues and to lay hands on Bishop T.D. Jakes and pray for him. This is a common practice in most Pentecostal churches. Bishop Jakes was also moved by the spirit and began shaking as he was receiving this Blessing.
May God continue to Bless Mr. Perry for giving such a wonderful donation to the youth.
Tyler Perry spoke to the congregation and said:
I love to give. I’ve been a giver all of my life and when people have given to you, and sewn into you, and God has touched them and given you favor… They don’t understand it where I come from. They don’t understand it in Hollywood but let me tell you about the blood of Jesus. All of my life, my mother, she didn’t have much to give me. She didn’t have millions of dollars, she didn’t have some legacy, but she had Jesus.
I didn’t know that [Bishop Jakes] was trying to build this youth center, but I know how important the youth are. So we were sitting in service, and I leaned up towards him and I said, ‘I’ve just been touched to give a million dollars,’ so when you got up here and said, ‘I need a million dollars,’ I said ‘God, I don’t know what you are doing but I heard your voice.’ (starts speaking in tongues.)
I’m gonna tell you right now, when you hear the voice of God you move. Don’t worry about your enemy. Don’t worry about your hater. He will bless you. He will lift you. Sometimes you spend too much time worrying about your haters, you spend so much time worrying about people talking about you, but what you need to understand is that the bible says, ‘In order for you to be blessed, your haters have to be present.’ How do I know that? The book of Palms said ‘He prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemy.’ So in order for me to eat, they have to be present. So God bless you Bishop.
