GROWN SO HAS LAKEWOOD CHURCH. OUR MELANIE LAWSON IS THUS A CLOSER LOOK. >>LAKEWOOD CHURCH IS KNOWN WORLDWIDE FOR ITS DINING FACILITIES AND FLAWLESS PRODUCTION. >>THAT IS NOT HOW THE CHURCH STARTED OUT 60 YEARS AGO. >>HE WANTED TO CHARGE WITH A PRIEST ABOUT THE BAPTISM AND THE HOLY GHOST AND HEALING. >>IT IS WHAT LED JOHN O’STEEN TO SET UP SERVICES IN A FEED STORE. >>YOU SHOULD’VE SEEN IT, IT HAD HOLES IN THE FLOOR. IT DIDN’T HAVE A RESTROOM, IT DIDN’T HAVE A WATER FAUCET. [ CLIP PLAYING ]>>FROM THE BEGINNING THE CHURCH ATTRACTED PEOPLE OF ALL RACES, EVEN IN A RACIALLY DIVIDED HOUSTON. >>JOHN TOLD HIM TO GO OUT TO GET THE PEOPLE TO COME IN. WE DO NOT CARE WHAT COLOR SKIN THEY HAVE. HE SAID WE DO NOT CARE WHAT KIND OF DENOMINATION. >>THE UNFAILING LOVE OF THE LORD NEVER ENDS. >>20 YEARS LATER HIS WIFE GOT A DEATH SENTENCE. SHE SAYS NONSTOP PRAYER HEALED HER. >>I WAS 48 THE AND I AM 85 NOW, GOING ON 86. >>SADLY THAT WASN’T THE CASE WITH HER HUSBAND, HIS DEATH WAS SUDDEN AND HIS SUCCESSOR UNCERTAIN, UNTIL JOEL AGREED TO PREACH, LITERALLY STEPPING INTO HIS FATHER’S SHOES, WEARING THEM FOR HIS FIRST SERMON. >>HE JUST GOT UP AND PREACHED. HE CALL ME SOON AFTER JOHN STEP, TWO OR THREE WEEKS AFTER IN FACT, MOTHER, I THINK THAT GOD HAS LED ME TO PASTOR THE CHARGE. >>IF YOU ARE GOING TO RUN YOUR RACE WITH PURPOSE, YOU HAVE TO REALIZE THAT YOU ARE A PERSON OF DESTINY. >>WHEN I LOOK BACK AT THE HOUSE DID I REALLY SPEAK THAT FIRST YEAR? IT WASN’T MY BACKGROUND. I KNEW THAT IT WAS IN ME, I DIDN’T KNOW IF I WOULD BE ANY GOOD? IT JUST REMINDS ME THAT GOD GIVES YOU GRACE FOR EVERY SEASON. >>DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR DAD TELLS ME TO DO THIS? >>HE NEVER SAID IT SPECIFICALLY, BUT I FEEL LIKE A NEW. MAYBE THAT IS WHY HE WENT ON TO BE WITH THE LORD. >>UNDER JOEL’S MINISTRY LAKE WORTH GROWTH EXPLODED, FORCING THE CHURCH TO MOVE TO A FORMER BASKETBALL ARENA. THEY AVERAGE 16,000 WORSHIPERS PER SERVICE, MILLIONS MORE WATCHING AROUND THE WORLD. IT IS TRULY A FAMILY AFFAIR, NOT ONLY HIS WIFE IS COPASTOR, BUT ALL OF HIS SIBLINGS ARE A PART OF THE MINISTRY. JUST AS HIS DAD PASSED THE MANTLE, HE IS LOOKING AT HIS OWN LEGACY. >>I DIDN’T PUSH HIM AND MY DAD DIDN’T PUSH ME. WHEN I HEARD HIM SPEAK I THINK HE IS SO FAR AHEAD OF WHERE I WAS I THOUGHT, MY GOODNESS. I AM GOING TO RETIRE AND TURN IT OVER TO HIM. >>CERTAINLY IS TIMES WHERE THINGS THERE ARE BIG SHOES TO FILL, AND AT THE SAME TIME MY DAD HAS HELP ME. IT IS NOT LIKE THEY ARE LEAVING ME TO DO IT ON MY OWN. MY DAD IS HELPING ME, MY MOTHER HAS BEEN WITH ME TO EVEN TAKE THE LITTLE STEPS TO BEGIN. >>AND THE FIRST TIME HE TOOK TO THE PULPIT… >>IT WAS VERY EMOTIONAL. DON’T MAKE ME CRY. IT WAS A DREAM COME TRUE. I WAS MORE NERVOUS THAN HIM. WHEN HE GOT UP THERE FOR A MINUTE I THOUGHT HE IS JUST SO NATURAL. HE WAS FANTASTIC.♪ [ MUSIC ] ♪ WE STAND AMAZED. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN 60 YEARS. >>WHAT ARE YOU PROUDEST OF? >>THE LIVES TOUCHED. THERE IS NOTHING MORE REWARDING THAN TO SEE PEOPLE LIFTED OR HEALED OR RESTORED OR JUST REACHING THE DREAMS. JUST BEING ABLE TO TOUCH PEOPLE, SOME OF THEM YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW BUT YOU ARE ABLE TO TOUCH THEM. ♪[ MUSIC ] ♪

  6. I love to be the part of Lakewood church even I'm from Nepal i attain services of online n i feel so blessed. Firstly thanks to my heavenly father n also thanks to Ps. Joel Osteen.

  7. This is a heretical church with no bible truth taught. Joel Osteen is an ice cream, sprinkles and candy kind of motivational speaker who USES the name of Jesus for financial gain. He twists and mutilates holy scripture to fit whatever story he is "preaching" on in his "sermon." The reason millions of people watch/support this shyster is because he is an ear tickler saying exactly what the people WANT to hear {wealth, prosperity, health} verses what they NEED to hear {God's Word}. The gate to heaven is narrow and few will enter and broad is the way to hell and many will enter because of false teachers like Joel Osteen who is the Pied Piper of fake Christianity. He is basically running a Ponzie Scheme in the guise of religion. I have only one word for this con artist: REPENT!!!!

  8. Thank You for posting, Looking forward to visiting Lakewood Church on August 17, 2019 & taking my whole family!

  11. Hebrew messiahs name. There was no letter j in the English language until the 15th century. Never has there been a letter j in the original ancient Hebrew language. God, Gad, Gud are all interrelated names. God was a common Teutonic-Germanic word that was applied to superhuman beings of heathen mythologies. Later the word "God" was adopted by Christianity as the generic name for the Supreme Being. It has become the most popular translation for the Hebrew word "Aluahym." As a result, most of Christendom believes that the Name for Aluaym is "God" and does not know that the personal Name of the Father is YAHUAH. Gad was the Babylonian/Canaanite/Syrian deity of "Good Luck" or "Fortune," also called "Meni," the god of "Destiny" who was regarded as the "Lord Moon." The city of Gad was named after this deity. Gad was identified with Jupiter, the Sun-deity, and applied to Nimrod whose general character was that of a Sun-god or Sun-divinity. Gud was the Anglo-Saxon name for "good god" vs. an "evil god."
    .Original Hebrew Text:
    Isaiah 65:11
    But you-all are those-having forsaken Me, and those-having-forgotten my QuaDaSH mountain, and those-preparing a table to a demon*, and filling-up a- drink-offering to Fortune**.
    The Greek 1142 meaning a bad sense a demon or evil spirit; also a god or goddess. so in this phrase it could also be seen as " and preparing a-table to a-God"; hence then in Christianity it could also be "and those preparing a-table to god". So then to those in christianity, they are doing this to god; hence the God of Fortune.
    ** The Greek means fortune or chance. The Original Hebrew 4507 meaning Meni the Babylonian God of fate or fortune.

  13. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray that God will be able to do that I pray again the power of God and I saith that I will receive the Lord have mercy to conquer those who doesn't want to establish you. Oh Lord give us our hearts to God the Lord will you are a miracle

  14. OSTEEN THE SON DOES NOT KNOW THE TRUTH ITS SAD BECAUSE HIS DAD KNEW THE TRUTH. I DONT AGREE WITH PASTOR OSTEEN JR. SO WE NEED TO PRAY FOR HIM. HE IS NOT A PASTOR BUT A MOTIVATION SPEAKER. WAKE UP FOLLOWERS. HE TELLS YOU WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR NOT THE TRUTH.

  16. I think Joel is a genuine believer and a true man of God ! However, I don't like those mega churches. Victoria is a much better speaker than her husband; I like her sermons. I had no idea their son was that involved. Good for them and may they always prosper

  17. I'm from South Africa, though I have my church but I always don't miss a service of Ps Joel Osteen. It's so touching to see his son following on his footsteps, God has really blessed this family. I pray my son can love God like this, though at the moment he listens to other people's teaching that there is no God. I pray that oneday he realises the reality about God

  18. It's time for the🌎 Demolition of poverty. 🌎

    🌎working on the cities of poverty worldwide 🌎 hoping others will do somethingπŸ’ it's a city effort, a nation's effort, a country's effort. It's the world's 🌎 effort.

  19. Luke 12:20Β  But God said to him, β€˜You fool! This very night your life will be required of
    you. Then who will own what you have accumulated?’
    Psalm 39:6Β  Surely every man goes about like a phantom; surely he bustles in vain; he
    heaps up riches not knowing who will haul them away.

  20. I am gay and Joel Osteen teach how to live in life not because of bible. He is awesome preacher. Not color or race. Live peacefully and happy. God love you

  21. He doesn't preach the whole Gospel! Hes a motivational speaker! He doesn't go deep into the bible! Hes a prosperity teacher! Watered down Gospel! He preaches me,me, me & I, I, & I ! What about God??????? He makes alot of $$$$$$$ off of the poor! He has a $300,000 dollar vehicle when my wife and I can not get a $30,000 dollar vehicle!!!!!! Nobody should make millions of of the Gospel! It's free and Jesus paid for it all!!!!!!
