  • Creflo Dollar: Just like your life is packaged in blood,
  • 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:10.120
  • the life of God is packaged in light.
  • 00:00:10.130 --> 00:00:17.020
  • Take away the light, replace it with darkness,
  • 00:00:17.030 --> 00:00:23.050
  • the life of God is not there.
  • 00:00:23.060 --> 00:00:26.050
  • Because God's life is packaged in what?
  • 00:00:26.060 --> 00:00:30.140
  • Man's life, human beings' life, is packaged in what?
  • 00:00:30.150 --> 00:00:35.150
  • But God's life is packaged in what?
  • 00:00:35.160 --> 00:00:40.010
  • So when you get to heaven, ain't no blood in heaven.

  • Oh, we embrace your love today.

  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:44.090 --> 00:01:47.240
  • Creflo: Hoo, Jesus, lift your hands up.
  • 00:01:50.030 --> 00:01:51.120
  • Just raise up, c'mon, just raise real quick.
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:52.220
  • Just lift your hands up.
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:54.020
  • Oh, God, thank you. Thank you for your love.
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:56.170
  • Thank you for your love.
  • 00:01:56.180 --> 00:01:57.270
  • Thank you that you're leading me,
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.070
  • you're directing my heart to your love.
  • 00:01:59.080 --> 00:02:00.270
  • The love that the Holy Spirit poured in my heart the day I got
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:03.100
  • born again because of your blood in the New Testament.
  • 00:02:03.110 --> 00:02:07.120
  • I receive it right now.
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:08.250
  • I receive it right now.
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:10.140
  • Somebody say, "Amen," on that, amen, amen.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:15.100
  • One more, 1 John 4:18: "Embrace the love of God
  • 00:02:15.110 --> 00:02:22.260
  • that he has for you.
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:24.070
  • Not fear. Don't embrace fear.
  • 00:02:24.080 --> 00:02:25.190
  • Embrace love.
  • 00:02:25.200 --> 00:02:27.040
  • Every time fear is there, embrace love.
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:28.290
  • Every time fear appears, embrace love.
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:32.030
  • Not how much you love him, but how much he loves you.
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:36.170
  • And guess what he says?
  • 00:02:36.180 --> 00:02:38.000
  • Faith worketh by you believing how much he loves you.
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:43.130
  • Put it in context now.
  • 00:02:43.140 --> 00:02:45.230
  • It's time to put it together now.
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:48.080
  • Faith works by how much you believe God loves you.
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:51.260
  • If you don't believe in the love of God, your faith won't work.
  • 00:02:51.270 --> 00:02:56.210
  • But if you're saying there, "I know God loves me,"
  • 00:02:56.220 --> 00:02:58.290
  • and watch your faith, "therefore I'm healed."
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:02.000
  • Therefore I'm healed works by "I know how much God loves me."
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:07.200
  • That's revelatory right there.
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:11.110
  • "I know God's gonna meet my needs."
  • 00:03:11.120 --> 00:03:14.110
  • No, back up.
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.260
  • "I know God loves me."
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:17.290
  • Get that straight.
  • 00:03:18.000 --> 00:03:19.200
  • Therefore, all of my needs are met.
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:22.220
  • Faith worketh by how much I believe God loves me.
  • 00:03:22.230 --> 00:03:28.000
  • Now you gotta train yourself in this.
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:30.180
  • You gotta train yourself, gotta renew your mind in this now.
  • 00:03:30.190 --> 00:03:34.050
  • You gotta get away from your old way of thinking and talking
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:36.070
  • about this and you gotta make these adjustments.
  • 00:03:36.080 --> 00:03:39.030
  • It's not okay for you to walk out of here, "I've made the
  • 00:03:39.040 --> 00:03:42.220
  • adjustment" in your thinking and then you go home and just keep
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:45.100
  • doing what you're doing.
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:46.250
  • "Well, it don't matter. God know what I mean."
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:48.100
  • Yeah, but do you know what you mean?
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:51.130
  • You'll have what you say.
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:54.160
  • "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."
  • 00:03:54.170 --> 00:03:56.040
  • Don't put that on God.
  • 00:03:56.050 --> 00:03:58.010
  • God know everything, got everything, and all that stuff.
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:04:00.170
  • But you're responsible for appropriating what--the finished
  • 00:04:00.180 --> 00:04:04.270
  • works of Jesus into your life so get it right.
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.160
  • Get it right.
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:08.240
  • That's all religion has done that.
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:10.150
  • Verse 15: "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:13.270
  • God, God dwelleth in him, and he dwelleth in God."
  • 00:04:13.280 --> 00:04:20.060
  • Well, not only that Jesus is the Son of God but now
  • 00:04:20.070 --> 00:04:24.030
  • that I'm born again, c'mon, I'm a son of God, amen.
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:30.250
  • Now, the bloodless Jesus.
  • 00:04:30.260 --> 00:04:34.100
  • Let's track this down now.
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:36.240
  • Real quick go to Luke chapter 24, verse 39.
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:40.050
  • Don't miss a word of what I'm about to say.
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:43.030
  • All right, Luke 24:39: "Behold," this is important, "my hands and
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:48.290
  • my feet," Jesus is saying after his resurrection.
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:52.080
  • "Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself."
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:58.160
  • He said, "Now handle me," touch me.
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:02.100
  • Don't just look at me, touch me.
  • 00:05:02.110 --> 00:05:05.090
  • See for yourself that I'm not just a spirit, "for a spirit has
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:11.070
  • not flesh and bone, as you see me have."
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:17.020
  • Now, the holes were in his hands.
  • 00:05:17.030 --> 00:05:19.190
  • Jesus just showed us something.
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:23.050
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:26.150
  • He showed us a glimpse of our heavenly body
  • 00:05:26.160 --> 00:05:32.270
  • when we leave the one that's supported by blood.
  • 00:05:32.280 --> 00:05:39.000
  • We're gonna have a flesh bone body with no blood
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:48.040
  • 'cause flesh and blood can't go there.
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:52.030
  • You have a flesh--I see some of y'all ready to go already,
  • 00:05:52.040 --> 00:05:55.170
  • "What?
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:59.270
  • Well, see, I don't know if I should get cremated or what."
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:02.050
  • It don't matter.
  • 00:06:02.060 --> 00:06:03.230
  • That body with the blood is done.
  • 00:06:03.240 --> 00:06:08.210
  • There's another body that wasn't made...
  • 00:06:08.220 --> 00:06:18.220
  • all right, oh, Jesus.
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:22.010
  • Hebrews 2:14, I almost said 40.
  • 00:06:22.020 --> 00:06:25.000
  • Hebrews 2:14.
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:28.010
  • All right, so now here, he's standing here
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:30.110
  • with a flesh bone no blood in his body.
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:36.050
  • "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh
  • 00:06:36.060 --> 00:06:38.130
  • and blood," we are partakers of flesh and blood,
  • 00:06:38.140 --> 00:06:43.030
  • "he also himself likewise took part of the same."
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:46.150
  • Jesus when he was on the earth, before the resurrection,
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:52.290
  • had a--had blood.
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:55.070
  • I mean, you saw it.
  • 00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:56.250
  • We talked about the bloody--
  • 00:06:56.260 --> 00:06:58.050
  • He had flesh and blood.
  • 00:06:58.060 --> 00:06:59.190
  • "He also himself likewise took part of the same; that through
  • 00:06:59.200 --> 00:07:02.220
  • death he might destroy him that had the power of death,
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:07.060
  • that is, the devil."
  • 00:07:07.070 --> 00:07:09.230
  • Now, 1 Corinthians 15:50.
  • 00:07:09.240 --> 00:07:14.110
  • I'm gonna read one more and then we're gonna get into this.
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:18.050
  • 1 Corinthians 15:50.
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:21.280
  • Flesh and bone.
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:25.200
  • "Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit
  • 00:07:25.210 --> 00:07:30.270
  • the kingdom of God; corruption can't inherit incorruption."
  • 00:07:30.280 --> 00:07:39.280
  • It ain't gonna happen.
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:43.000
  • All right, go to Luke 24.
  • 00:07:43.010 --> 00:07:44.280
  • Let's start at verse 36 and read down to verse 43.
  • 00:07:44.290 --> 00:07:50.150
  • Luke 24:36 and we'll stop at 43.
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:59.080
  • All right, verse 36 says: "And as they thus spake, Jesus
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:08.050
  • himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:12.160
  • be unto you."
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:14.060
  • 37: "But they were terrified and affrightened,
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:18.050
  • and supposed that they had seen a spirit."
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:20.220
  • I mean, they saw this guy die.
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:22.260
  • What's up?
  • 00:08:22.270 --> 00:08:24.160
  • Now he in the midst of 'em.
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:26.200
  • I mean, what would you do?
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:30.110
  • "How you doing?" No, you wouldn't.
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:33.220
  • All right, next verse.
  • 00:08:33.230 --> 00:08:35.250
  • "And he said unto them, Why are you troubled?"
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:38.250
  • [laughing]
  • 00:08:38.260 --> 00:08:40.050
  • 'Cause you dead, now you're here.
  • 00:08:40.060 --> 00:08:42.180
  • "And why do thoughts arise in your hearts?"
  • 00:08:42.190 --> 00:08:44.210
  • So he knew what they were thinking.
  • 00:08:44.220 --> 00:08:46.280
  • All right, he said, "Behold my hands, my feet, that it is
  • 00:08:46.290 --> 00:08:50.180
  • I myself: handle me, see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones,
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:56.130
  • as you see me have."
  • 00:08:56.140 --> 00:08:57.230
  • Verse 40: "And when he had thus spoken,
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:09:00.270
  • he showed them his hands and his feet."
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:03.240
  • 41: "And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered,
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:11.070
  • he said unto them, Have you any meat here?"
  • 00:09:11.080 --> 00:09:15.200
  • Thou still ain't got it.
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:17.000
  • Give me some meat. Oh, my God.
  • 00:09:17.010 --> 00:09:20.170
  • "And they gave him a piece of broiled fish, and a honeycomb."
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:26.070
  • Look what he did, verse 43: "He took it,
  • 00:09:26.080 --> 00:09:28.260
  • and he sat down and ate it."
  • 00:09:28.270 --> 00:09:36.280
  • I got questions.
  • 00:09:36.290 --> 00:09:40.140
  • First of all, you show up with a body with no blood and then with
  • 00:09:40.150 --> 00:09:45.100
  • that body, after death, you sit down and eat physical food.
  • 00:09:45.110 --> 00:09:51.090
  • You with me?
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:00.100
  • All right now, let's go to the next step here.
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:04.130
  • By the grace of God what we see here is the same kind of body
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:09.120
  • God has reserved for us: a boundless, no boundaries for it,
  • 00:10:09.130 --> 00:10:17.140
  • bloodless body, glorified.
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:24.170
  • A body that can walk through matter and still handle it.
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:32.130
  • Y'all don't even understand when I say it.
  • 00:10:32.140 --> 00:10:34.050
  • The Scripture says Jesus walked on through the door,
  • 00:10:34.060 --> 00:10:35.250
  • the door being shut.
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:39.120
  • He don't have to--he had to open when he had a flesh blood body.
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:45.230
  • But this new body is boundless, can't nothing stop it.
  • 00:10:45.240 --> 00:10:51.270
  • It walks through doors and walls and yet can sit down.
  • 00:10:51.280 --> 00:10:55.080
  • It has authority over physical matter and yet can handle
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:11:00.030
  • physical matter and eat it.
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:05.180
  • A boundless, bloodless,
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:10.040
  • glorified body awaits us.
  • 00:11:10.050 --> 00:11:20.010
  • 1 Corinthians 15:49 and 53. 1 Corinthians 15:49, 53.
  • 00:11:22.090 --> 00:11:29.020
  • It awaits us.
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:31.140
  • Just as soon as you leave this body,
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:33.270
  • simultaneously you will be in the other one.
  • 00:11:33.280 --> 00:11:37.160
  • And on the other side, you have to wonder, "What just happened?"
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:39.210
  • You won't even know you died,
  • 00:11:39.220 --> 00:11:42.240
  • if you in this New Testament.
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:46.210
  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:11:53.270 --> 00:11:55.150
  • "And as we have borne the image of the earthly,
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:12:02.130
  • we shall also bear the image of the heavenly."
  • 00:12:02.140 --> 00:12:07.270
  • You hear me?
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:09.260
  • We born with a body but you can also have
  • 00:12:09.270 --> 00:12:12.270
  • the image of the heavenly.
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:15.230
  • Now verse 50: "Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood
  • 00:12:15.240 --> 00:12:19.240
  • cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:21.200
  • neither does corruption and incorruption."
  • 00:12:21.210 --> 00:12:23.150
  • 51: "Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep,
  • 00:12:23.160 --> 00:12:30.010
  • but we shall all be changed."
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:33.230
  • 52: "In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:
  • 00:12:33.240 --> 00:12:41.000
  • for the trump shall sound, the dead shall be raised
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:46.060
  • incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:53.160
  • 53: "For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
  • 00:12:53.170 --> 00:13:01.130
  • and this mortal must put on immortality."
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:06.150
  • See, you were born
  • 00:13:06.160 --> 00:13:08.150
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:13:08.160 --> 00:13:09.290
  • I can't help but believe this.
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:11.230
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:13:11.240 --> 00:13:17.210
  • Immortality awaits us.
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:20.170
  • Let me just explain something about immortality.
  • 00:13:20.180 --> 00:13:22.150
  • No more death.
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:25.070
  • You're a mortal when you can die.
  • 00:13:25.080 --> 00:13:27.270
  • You're immortals when you can't die.
  • 00:13:27.280 --> 00:13:30.150
  • I got news for you, when this thing first started
  • 00:13:30.160 --> 00:13:33.140
  • we were born immortal.
  • 00:13:33.150 --> 00:13:35.200
  • The sin changed it back to mortal.
  • 00:13:35.210 --> 00:13:41.150
  • All right, follow me, not there--
  • 00:13:41.160 --> 00:13:44.110
  • Let's go to Leviticus 17:14.
  • 00:13:44.120 --> 00:13:46.000
  • Let's look at life in heaven for a minute.
  • 00:13:46.010 --> 00:13:49.110
  • Life in heaven.
  • 00:13:49.120 --> 00:13:50.210
  • This tells us about this situation here
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:52.090
  • about life in heaven.
  • 00:13:52.100 --> 00:13:53.190
  • Let's go there for a moment, Leviticus 17:14.
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:58.150
  • All right, now let me show you something
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:13:59.250
  • about with the blood again.
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:01.220
  • "For it is the life--for it is the life of all flesh,"
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:05.130
  • talking about the blood.
  • 00:14:05.140 --> 00:14:06.230
  • "The blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto
  • 00:14:06.240 --> 00:14:13.050
  • the children of Israel, You shall eat the blood
  • 00:14:13.060 --> 00:14:15.170
  • of no manner of flesh."
  • 00:14:15.180 --> 00:14:17.070
  • Why?
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:18.250
  • "For the life of all flesh is the blood."
  • 00:14:18.260 --> 00:14:24.180
  • Life packaged in blood.
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:30.210
  • You can't see it and you can't make it.
  • 00:14:30.220 --> 00:14:35.260
  • Scientists cannot make blood because the life,
  • 00:14:35.270 --> 00:14:43.010
  • your life, is packaged in your blood.
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:49.170
  • God packaged the human life in the blood.
  • 00:14:49.180 --> 00:14:54.140
  • Life is in the blood.
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:14:58.130
  • So when the blood--when you have a blood problem,
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:15:03.120
  • when that becomes a problem, you've got a life problem
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:08.030
  • 'cause life is in the blood.
  • 00:15:08.040 --> 00:15:11.240
  • How many of you know man is a tripart being?
  • 00:15:11.250 --> 00:15:13.120
  • C'mon, man is a--
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:15.090
  • He has a--
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:16.280
  • He lives in a--
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:18.180
  • So the day a man dies, he will drop his natural
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:21.090
  • house and almost immediately pick up a spiritual house
  • 00:15:21.100 --> 00:15:25.000
  • or body with no blood.
  • 00:15:25.010 --> 00:15:29.250
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 5 and 1.
  • 00:15:29.260 --> 00:15:32.170
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 5 and 1.
  • 00:15:32.180 --> 00:15:36.000
  • Oh, I'm getting ready to show you something.
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:39.260
  • Think about that now.
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:41.080
  • You die and almost immediately, and this is before the
  • 00:15:41.090 --> 00:15:44.100
  • resurrection of the new--you've
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:45.280
  • gotta have a heavenly body to exist there.
  • 00:15:45.290 --> 00:15:51.190
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:15:51.200 --> 00:15:53.240
  • 2 Corinthians 5:1: "For we know that if our earthly house of
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:57.210
  • this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God,
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:16:04.060
  • a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."
  • 00:16:04.070 --> 00:16:11.110
  • Now that ain't no fancy little Scripture.
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:13.190
  • This is what he was saying: When your earthly house or your
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:17.230
  • tabernacle, this is your body, when it dissolves or you die
  • 00:16:17.240 --> 00:16:24.010
  • or leave it, he said, "No worries.
  • 00:16:24.020 --> 00:16:28.180
  • We have a building of God.
  • 00:16:28.190 --> 00:16:32.240
  • We have a building of God.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:35.090
  • It's a house not made with hands,
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:38.050
  • it's eternal, it's in the heaven."
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:44.200
  • All right, real quick.
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:46.140
  • Put all these Scriptures together
  • 00:16:46.150 --> 00:16:47.240
  • 'cause you know you can say stuff and--people
  • 00:16:47.250 --> 00:16:49.290
  • I'm making up stuff.
  • 00:16:50.000 --> 00:16:51.240
  • Gotta see what the Scriptures say.
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:53.040
  • 1 John 1:5.
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:57.070
  • So now, what's the life like in heaven?
  • 00:16:57.080 --> 00:16:59.200
  • There's a building there, eternal in heaven.
  • 00:16:59.210 --> 00:17:02.180
  • What is it--what is life in him?
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:03.280
  • What is life in heaven?
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:05.100
  • 1 John 1:5: "This then is the message which we have heard
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:11.020
  • of him, and we declare unto him,"
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:13.250
  • watch this, watch this, "God is," what?
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:20.160
  • "Light, and in him is no," what?
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:26.020
  • "Darkness."
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.290
  • So now we're dealing with light versus darkness.
  • 00:17:28.000 --> 00:17:32.080
  • God is what? Light.
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:35.220
  • Now, go to Saint John, John, Saint John chapter 1, verse 4
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:40.260
  • and then move down to 8 and 9.
  • 00:17:40.270 --> 00:17:42.110
  • Saint John, chapter 1, verse 4 and move down to 8 and 9.
  • 00:17:42.120 --> 00:17:48.240
  • So God is light. Say that.
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:52.030
  • God is light.
  • 00:17:52.040 --> 00:17:56.020
  • All right now, watch this.
  • 00:17:56.030 --> 00:17:57.180
  • John 1:4: "In him was life; and the life
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:18:06.130
  • was the light of men."
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:11.250
  • Verse 8, 9: "He was not that Light," Jesus,
  • 00:18:11.260 --> 00:18:18.150
  • "but Jesus was sent to bear witness of that Light."
  • 00:18:18.160 --> 00:18:23.070
  • Verse 9: "That was the true Light, which lighteth every man
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:30.000
  • that cometh into the world."
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:31.280
  • Or it was God who lit every baby that was born.
  • 00:18:31.290 --> 00:18:39.050
  • And notice what he says: that this light is the life.
  • 00:18:39.060 --> 00:18:47.060
  • This light is the life.
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:49.040
  • God's life is packaged in light.
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:53.220
  • Just as he packaged man's life in blood,
  • 00:18:53.230 --> 00:18:57.240
  • the life of God is packaged in light.
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:19:04.110
  • Just like your life is packaged in blood,
  • 00:19:04.120 --> 00:19:08.230
  • the life of God is packaged in light.
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:15.130
  • Take away the light, replace it with darkness,
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:21.150
  • the life of God is not there.
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:24.150
  • Because God's life is packaged in what?
  • 00:19:24.160 --> 00:19:28.230
  • Man's life, human beings' life, is packaged in what?
  • 00:19:28.240 --> 00:19:33.240
  • But God's life is packaged in what?
  • 00:19:33.250 --> 00:19:38.100
  • So when you get to heaven, ain't no blood in heaven.
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:43.100
  • So if there's life in heaven, what's the package you gotta
  • 00:19:43.110 --> 00:19:47.040
  • have to have life in heaven?
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:49.110
  • Light.
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:52.240
  • Ephesians 5 and 8, c'mon.
  • 00:19:52.250 --> 00:19:56.050
  • Ephesians 5 and 8, Aw man, I'm out of time.
  • 00:19:56.060 --> 00:20:00.070
  • I could--Ephesians 5 and 8: "For you were sometimes darkness,
  • 00:20:00.080 --> 00:20:09.050
  • but now you light--now are you light in the Lord:
  • 00:20:13.180 --> 00:20:20.160
  • walk as children of light."
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:23.150
  • You were sometimes darkness, but now you're light.
  • 00:20:23.160 --> 00:20:28.150
  • All right, how'd it happen there?
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:29.260
  • All right, so notice every baby that's born is lit with light.
  • 00:20:29.270 --> 00:20:36.230
  • The life of God and the light of God is in every baby
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:41.240
  • that's born that has blood and light until they get
  • 00:20:41.250 --> 00:20:46.230
  • to the age of accountability.
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:49.020
  • At that age, they should be able to decide to make Jesus the Lord
  • 00:20:49.030 --> 00:20:54.110
  • of their life so they can stay in the light.
  • 00:20:54.120 --> 00:20:59.040
  • But if they don't get saved, the light's turned off
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:02.140
  • and now in--they now in darkness.
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:06.070
  • No life of God.
  • 00:21:06.080 --> 00:21:09.160
  • And this dark world is trying to steal lights.
  • 00:21:09.170 --> 00:21:15.290
  • You all don't hear what I'm saying.
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:19.170
  • Every unbeliever is darkness.
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:22.250
  • But when they turn to believe in Jesus
  • 00:21:22.260 --> 00:21:25.090
  • they become light in the Lord.
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:28.090
  • Now look at John 12:36.
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:36.150
  • Finish this up.
  • 00:21:36.160 --> 00:21:38.100
  • John 12:36: "While you have light, believe in the light,
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:47.010
  • that you may be the children of light.
  • 00:21:47.020 --> 00:21:50.120
  • These things spake Jesus, and he departed,
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:53.150
  • and did hide himself from them."
  • 00:21:53.160 --> 00:21:57.090
  • So he says, "While you have light."
  • 00:21:57.100 --> 00:22:01.160
  • Oh my God, the day you got born again, the life of God packaged
  • 00:22:01.170 --> 00:22:07.000
  • in light came on the inside of you
  • 00:22:07.010 --> 00:22:09.030
  • while you still had your human life packaged in blood.
  • 00:22:09.040 --> 00:22:14.230
  • You all don't hear what I'm saying.
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:17.120
  • So he said, "You need to believe in that life of God so you can
  • 00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:23.200
  • be the children of light."
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:26.120
  • See, every born again Christian, you are a child of light, not of
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:30.190
  • lights because God is the Father of lights, meaning us,
  • 00:22:30.200 --> 00:22:35.050
  • but he is the one who is the light.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:39.280
  • "These things spake Jesus."
  • 00:22:39.290 --> 00:22:41.260
  • Jesus was talking to 'em.
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:44.030
  • "And then he departed, and did hide himself from them."
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:50.230
  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:22:50.240 --> 00:22:53.040
  • 1 Thessalonians 5 and 5, then James 1:17, then Matthew 13,
  • 00:22:53.050 --> 00:22:59.150
  • and then I can tell you what I wanna say.
  • 00:22:59.160 --> 00:23:03.230
  • All right, "You are all the children of light,
  • 00:23:03.240 --> 00:23:10.240
  • and the children of the day: we are not of the night,
  • 00:23:10.250 --> 00:23:15.100
  • we are not of darkness."
  • 00:23:15.110 --> 00:23:20.260
  • James 1:17.
  • 00:23:20.270 --> 00:23:22.230
  • Say out loud: "I'm a child of the light,"
  • 00:23:22.240 --> 00:23:26.040
  • or "I'm a child of the life of God."
  • 00:23:26.050 --> 00:23:30.250
  • All right, James 1:17: "Every good gift and every perfect gift
  • 00:23:30.260 --> 00:23:35.120
  • is from above, and cometh down from the Father of--with whom is
  • 00:23:35.130 --> 00:23:41.150
  • no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
  • 00:23:41.160 --> 00:23:45.080
  • Last one, Matthew 13:43, and then I'll finish the rest later.
  • 00:23:45.090 --> 00:23:51.050
  • Matthew 14--Matthew 13:43.
  • 00:23:51.060 --> 00:23:56.000
  • Glory be to God.
  • 00:23:56.010 --> 00:24:00.170
  • "Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun."
  • 00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:06.290
  • Now he is talking about heaven.
  • 00:24:07.000 --> 00:24:11.150
  • "Then the righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:16.010
  • of their Father.
  • 00:24:16.020 --> 00:24:17.250
  • Who hath ears to hear--he who has ears to hear, let him hear."
  • 00:24:17.260 --> 00:24:25.210
  • Now here's what I believe the Lord has done.
  • 00:24:25.220 --> 00:24:32.100
  • Here is Jesus now, obviously, a Son of light.
  • 00:24:32.110 --> 00:24:40.160
  • But he also had blood to give him life in the physical body.
  • 00:24:40.170 --> 00:24:46.000
  • He poured his blood out at the mercy seat, the actual mercy
  • 00:24:46.010 --> 00:24:51.230
  • seat, so next week we'll talk about the blood of Abel crying
  • 00:24:51.240 --> 00:24:56.160
  • versus the blood of Jesus which speaks of better things.
  • 00:24:56.170 --> 00:25:01.220
  • But here's what I want you to see, ladies and gentlemen.
  • 00:25:01.230 --> 00:25:04.000
  • Nobody gets into heaven without their light on.
  • 00:25:04.010 --> 00:25:10.120
  • Nobody.
  • 00:25:14.210 --> 00:25:16.150
  • You don't go without light.
  • 00:25:16.160 --> 00:25:19.010
  • announcer: Many believers have the wrong impression of God
  • 00:25:19.020 --> 00:25:21.140
  • because they are not rightly dividing the Word
  • 00:25:21.150 --> 00:25:23.190
  • between the old and new covenant.
  • 00:25:23.200 --> 00:25:26.140
