  • 00:00:04.170 --> 00:00:05.210
  • Creflo Dollar: The anointing that Jesus has already put
  • 00:00:05.220 --> 00:00:08.100
  • on you, you're already equipped to do what he called you to do.
  • 00:00:08.110 --> 00:00:11.190
  • You're already anointed, hallelujah.
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:13.200
  • So with that anointing, burdens have to move.
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:17.040
  • Yokes have to be destroyed.
  • 00:00:17.050 --> 00:00:19.020
  • And when people see it, you'll tell them why.
  • 00:00:19.030 --> 00:00:20.200
  • Not because of my self-effort.
  • 00:00:20.210 --> 00:00:22.080
  • Why?
  • 00:00:22.090 --> 00:00:23.190
  • Because of the anointing.
  • 00:00:23.200 --> 00:00:25.130
  • female: Creflo and Taffi Dollar are blanketing the world
  • 00:00:25.140 --> 00:00:28.060
  • with the message of grace and biblical equality.
  • 00:00:28.070 --> 00:00:31.040
  • Souls are being saved and lives are being transformed all
  • 00:00:31.050 --> 00:00:35.100
  • around the world.
  • 00:00:35.110 --> 00:00:37.030
  • Their ministry, World Changers Church, you know, World Changers
  • 00:00:37.040 --> 00:00:39.290
  • International, it really does make a difference
  • 00:00:40.000 --> 00:00:42.060
  • in people's lives.
  • 00:00:42.070 --> 00:00:44.060
  • There's so many people, too many for them to count, of how their
  • 00:00:44.070 --> 00:00:47.070
  • lives have been impacted.
  • 00:00:47.080 --> 00:00:48.200
  • male announcer: And now it's your time.
  • 00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:50.230
  • Call, text, or go online to register today.
  • 00:00:50.240 --> 00:00:54.130
  • This is your world
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:57.040
  • so let's vow to make it a better place
  • 00:00:57.050 --> 00:01:02.120
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:02.130 --> 00:01:07.160
  • Your love is here to stay
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:09.280
  • Oh-oh
  • 00:01:09.290 --> 00:01:11.120
  • It's time to live a new life
  • 00:01:11.130 --> 00:01:13.240
  • Oh-oh
  • 00:01:13.250 --> 00:01:15.120
  • Let his love shine bright in you
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:17.290
  • Oh-oh
  • 00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:19.220
  • We're saved by his grace
  • 00:01:19.230 --> 00:01:21.070
  • so we embrace your love today
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:24.230
  • We are changed
  • 00:01:24.240 --> 00:01:28.010
  • Creflo Dollar: Think about what it means when you maintain
  • 00:01:30.080 --> 00:01:32.130
  • self-effort.
  • 00:01:32.140 --> 00:01:34.020
  • You're saying, "I trust me, not God."
  • 00:01:34.030 --> 00:01:40.020
  • It is when you go to yourself and you say, I have more faith
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:46.190
  • in what I can do for Jesus than I do have faith in what Jesus
  • 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:52.060
  • has already done for me.
  • 00:01:52.070 --> 00:01:54.170
  • Now remember the Scripture says, "The law is not by faith."
  • 00:01:54.180 --> 00:02:00.180
  • In Romans 14, "And whatsoever is not of faith is sin."
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:06.040
  • You don't need faith to live by the law.
  • 00:02:06.050 --> 00:02:08.070
  • It's real simple.
  • 00:02:08.080 --> 00:02:09.170
  • The law is very clear.
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:10.280
  • Keep it, get blessed.
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:12.080
  • Don't keep it, get cursed.
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:13.190
  • Real simple.
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:15.120
  • But to say that Jesus has made me righteous and I say, "Oh God,
  • 00:02:15.130 --> 00:02:19.140
  • I believe it," that takes faith every day to believe that you
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:23.050
  • actually are righteous like he said.
  • 00:02:23.060 --> 00:02:27.210
  • But we'd rather think, "Well, I'm going to keep
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:29.120
  • up with a whole bunch of good works and a whole bunch of great
  • 00:02:29.130 --> 00:02:32.030
  • performances, and so when I get to heaven, if they don't let me
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:34.280
  • in I'm just going to pull my Rolodex out,
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:36.070
  • and I'm just gonna show 'em.
  • 00:02:36.080 --> 00:02:38.170
  • Look at all of this stuff I did all my life."
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:41.030
  • And Jesus said, "Oh, dead works, dead works, dead works, dead
  • 00:02:41.040 --> 00:02:44.070
  • works, dead works, because you trusted your self-effort and you
  • 00:02:44.080 --> 00:02:47.040
  • didn't trust me."
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.160
  • And the world came out with self-help books.
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:51.110
  • That's why it's so messed up right now.
  • 00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:53.190
  • Self-help to try to maintain that whole performance-based
  • 00:02:53.200 --> 00:02:59.190
  • Christianity.
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:01.090
  • And people think I've lost it.
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:02.290
  • They don't understand what I'm sayin'.
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:05.040
  • To try to perform, to try to perform to keep the law
  • 00:03:05.050 --> 00:03:09.200
  • of Moses, when the law of Moses was given to show you that you
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:13.170
  • need Jesus.
  • 00:03:13.180 --> 00:03:17.110
  • To continue to engage in your self-effort to try to do it,
  • 00:03:17.120 --> 00:03:22.250
  • it's totally contrary to the fact he's tryin' to say
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:25.020
  • you have to disengage, or you're sayin' you don't need Jesus.
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:29.240
  • You're trusting you more than Jesus.
  • 00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:32.150
  • Oh, Lord have mercy.
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:35.040
  • And this is where we're missing it.
  • 00:03:35.050 --> 00:03:37.270
  • The law was given to show you what's wrong with you.
  • 00:03:37.280 --> 00:03:42.240
  • It was given to show you-- it was a mirror
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:45.230
  • to show you your issue.
  • 00:03:45.240 --> 00:03:47.230
  • The law was a spirit-- a medical dye to show you where
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:51.040
  • the problem was.
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:52.140
  • And the problem was you have this perfect law that was given
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:56.030
  • to show you how imperfect you are, and how you need Jesus,
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:04:01.010
  • and how you cannot ever be able to do it on your own.
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:05.260
  • And every time you thought about doing it on your own, then
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:08.140
  • Jesus himself showed up to elevate the impossibility
  • 00:04:08.150 --> 00:04:12.100
  • of you being able to do this by yourself.
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:18.000
  • The flesh is under the law, trying to be good through
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:23.050
  • your self-effort.
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:27.270
  • Wow, that has to be settled before we can even talk
  • 00:04:27.280 --> 00:04:31.000
  • about your authority.
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:33.230
  • Authority, and when you try to activate spiritual laws,
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:38.240
  • miracles, and all that kinda stuff, when you try to activate
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:41.010
  • it, and you don't even believe you are who Jesus says you are,
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:45.070
  • the problem is you're trying to do something based on a false
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:47.240
  • identity.
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:50.220
  • You got to clear that up.
  • 00:04:50.230 --> 00:04:52.030
  • You got to know.
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:53.130
  • You remember we said before, we said sometimes you'll say,
  • 00:04:53.140 --> 00:04:55.150
  • "Lord, what you want me to do?"
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:56.260
  • And he'll say, "Who are you?"
  • 00:04:56.270 --> 00:04:59.270
  • Every time they messed up in New Testament, Paul, this is how he
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:03.080
  • corrected them.
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.190
  • He reminded them who they were and what they had.
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:07.220
  • Something must be powerful about receiving by faith
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:11.060
  • who you are.
  • 00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:14.060
  • Why is it that the enemy is always trying to attack
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:15.220
  • your identity?
  • 00:05:15.230 --> 00:05:17.130
  • Why did he go after the identity of Adam and Eve in the garden?
  • 00:05:17.140 --> 00:05:20.120
  • Why did he-- first thing he did when Jesus came in the flesh, he
  • 00:05:20.130 --> 00:05:23.120
  • went after his identity, "If thou be the Son of God."
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:26.180
  • Goes after your identity all the time, why?
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:28.250
  • There's something about a man being secure in the identity
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:32.000
  • that has been gifted to him by Jesus Christ that will flow
  • 00:05:32.010 --> 00:05:35.090
  • from that identity, authority like he's never know.
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:40.150
  • Let the redeemed of the Lord tell the story.
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:46.160
  • Amen?
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:48.240
  • Alright, I'm excited.
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:50.120
  • I apologize.
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:51.230
  • I can stay there all day.
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:53.030
  • That just-- that gets me going, amen?
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:54.140
  • Now, so let's look at Deuteronomy 28 again,
  • 00:05:54.150 --> 00:06:00.110
  • and I want to take you through about eight or ten
  • 00:06:00.120 --> 00:06:02.070
  • scriptures to show you this point and then get
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:04.240
  • to the other one.
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:06.240
  • I hope we'll have some time.
  • 00:06:06.250 --> 00:06:08.050
  • But does everybody understand that last point I made?
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:09.270
  • You got to surrender your self-effort where your identity
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:15.280
  • is concerned, and you've got to surrender your self-effort
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:20.040
  • where the accomplishments of what Jesus has already done
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:24.110
  • is concerned.
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:25.230
  • He's already done it.
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:27.190
  • I don't know what to do sometimes when people, when they
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:29.240
  • get diagnosed with sickness and Jesus says, "I've already
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:32.200
  • healed you," and they proceed through their self-effort to try
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:36.220
  • to make something happen that Jesus has already made happen
  • 00:06:36.230 --> 00:06:40.020
  • that's just waiting on them to take possession of it
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:42.100
  • through their faith, and they won't do it.
  • 00:06:42.110 --> 00:06:44.220
  • They do all this other kind of stuff and they won't do it.
  • 00:06:44.230 --> 00:06:46.290
  • And not knowing that day you believe it, then the Holy
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:49.140
  • Spirit's working in you, speaking to you, leading you,
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:51.250
  • guiding you, and then telling you some things to do.
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:54.160
  • But he's given birth.
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.270
  • See that's what belief does.
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.070
  • Real Bible belief will always give birth to action,
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:07:00.290
  • and direction, and wisdom.
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:03.260
  • That's what wisdom is.
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:05.070
  • Jesus said, "I was made unto you wisdom."
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:06.260
  • Wisdom is knowing what to do when you don't know what to do.
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:09.240
  • And here you are through your own self-effort trying
  • 00:07:09.250 --> 00:07:12.000
  • to manufacture what to do, which may be the wrong thing.
  • 00:07:12.010 --> 00:07:15.230
  • Because you'll have-- you'll try to come up with a good idea
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:18.100
  • versus a God idea.
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:19.220
  • A good idea you gotta go and ask God to help it.
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:21.240
  • A God idea is already anointed.
  • 00:07:21.250 --> 00:07:25.000
  • It'll get the job done.
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:26.260
  • That's what the anointing is all about.
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:28.240
  • The anointing is burden-removing,
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:31.280
  • yoke-destroying power.
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:34.030
  • It is something that God favored you with through his grace.
  • 00:07:34.040 --> 00:07:37.280
  • He's anointed you, and burdens should be removed, and yokes
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:41.270
  • should be destroyed because of the anointing.
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:46.020
  • That's a part of the gift of authority that has been given
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:49.040
  • to you, amen.
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:51.040
  • But it's also a part of your identity.
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:52.240
  • I am anointed.
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:56.220
  • I'm not tryin' to be anointed.
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:58.030
  • I'm not tryin' to get anointed.
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:00.080
  • "To anoint" literally means to rub on or to rub into,
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:03.130
  • hallelujah.
  • 00:08:03.140 --> 00:08:04.240
  • The anointing that Jesus has already put on you, you're
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:08.230
  • already equipped to do what he called you to do.
  • 00:08:08.240 --> 00:08:10.270
  • You're already anointed, hallelujah.
  • 00:08:10.280 --> 00:08:12.280
  • So with that anointing, burdens have to move,
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:16.040
  • yokes have to be destroyed.
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:18.150
  • And when people see it, you'll tell 'em why.
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:19.270
  • Not because of my self-effort, why?
  • 00:08:19.280 --> 00:08:22.120
  • Because of the anointing.
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:28.080
  • Son, I'm ready to tear something up around here, y'all.
  • 00:08:28.090 --> 00:08:31.280
  • Y'all lookin' decent.
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.080
  • I'm just-- I'm going to get me a Tarzan vine
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:35.070
  • and just swing around.
  • 00:08:35.080 --> 00:08:37.080
  • Oh, glory be to God.
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:39.020
  • Oh, if we ever-- you know, but the religion, religion just
  • 00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:43.270
  • keeps getting us over there.
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:46.040
  • Perform these ten. Perform these ten.
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:48.280
  • They'll never say nothin' about 613.
  • 00:08:48.290 --> 00:08:50.220
  • Perform these ten.
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:54.130
  • You don't realize Jesus came and performed all of 'em
  • 00:08:54.140 --> 00:08:57.170
  • and said, "Now believe me that I got the job done, and I'm only
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:09:01.110
  • requiring you to perform one, love."
  • 00:09:01.120 --> 00:09:05.120
  • The perfect law of liberty, the law of love, watch this,
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:09.180
  • and the law of faith, 'cause you don't need faith for the Law
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:13.090
  • of Moses.
  • 00:09:13.100 --> 00:09:14.200
  • You need faith for this new covenant.
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:18.000
  • Now, let's look at this real quickly.
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:19.190
  • This is now the actual agreement of the law, and you can see that
  • 00:09:19.200 --> 00:09:23.110
  • this agreement is-- there are two things you're going to see
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:25.230
  • in this agreement.
  • 00:09:25.240 --> 00:09:27.030
  • Number one, it is completely performance-based agreement.
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:31.110
  • It is, number two, an agreement that is conditional
  • 00:09:31.120 --> 00:09:36.240
  • to your performance.
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:40.170
  • Performance-based agreement, and it is conditional
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:44.020
  • to your performance.
  • 00:09:44.030 --> 00:09:46.020
  • In other words, if you don't do certain things,
  • 00:09:46.030 --> 00:09:46.270
  • you can't get it.
  • 00:09:46.280 --> 00:09:48.280
  • If you do do it, then you can get it.
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:50.080
  • It's based on your performance.
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:52.050
  • Now, look what he says here.
  • 00:09:52.060 --> 00:09:53.150
  • See it for yourself.
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:54.260
  • "And it shall come to pass, if thou--" now, he says, "If thou,"
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:57.130
  • because he says, "It shall come to pass, if thou," or based
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:10:00.170
  • on this condition.
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:02.050
  • It is a conditional agreement, okay?
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:05.240
  • If thou.
  • 00:10:05.250 --> 00:10:07.040
  • You will not see "If thou" in the-- when he talks
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:10.220
  • about the establishment of the new covenant.
  • 00:10:10.230 --> 00:10:13.130
  • You will see, "I will.
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:14.230
  • I will. I will.
  • 00:10:14.240 --> 00:10:17.140
  • I will.
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:18.250
  • You will believe.
  • 00:10:18.260 --> 00:10:20.050
  • I will be your God."
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:21.160
  • He says, "If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice
  • 00:10:21.170 --> 00:10:22.260
  • of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all these commandments,
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:26.220
  • which I command thee this day, that thou will set thee on high
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:30.040
  • above all nations of the Earth."
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:31.190
  • All of that is conditional based on your performance to keep all
  • 00:10:31.200 --> 00:10:37.190
  • the commandments.
  • 00:10:38.210 --> 00:10:40.120
  • That's conditional.
  • 00:10:40.130 --> 00:10:41.220
  • Look at verse 2, "And all these blessings shall come on thee,
  • 00:10:41.230 --> 00:10:45.030
  • and overtake thee."
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:46.140
  • And he reminds you it's conditional.
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:48.160
  • It's based on your performance.
  • 00:10:48.170 --> 00:10:50.290
  • Literally, you have to earn this.
  • 00:10:51.000 --> 00:10:54.030
  • You have to work for this.
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:56.150
  • "If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God."
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:10:59.110
  • And if you can, if you can keep the condition, verse 3, he says,
  • 00:10:59.120 --> 00:11:03.050
  • "Then you'll be blessed in the city, and you'll be
  • 00:11:03.060 --> 00:11:04.220
  • blessed in the field."
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:06.250
  • Okay now, let's just back up a little bit.
  • 00:11:06.260 --> 00:11:08.230
  • I ain't tryin' to mess with nobody, but how long have
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:11.130
  • you been goin' to church, and people go to Deuteronomy 28,
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:14.220
  • and they tell you, "This is the blessing."
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:20.230
  • And I have no problem with that if you say that is the blessing
  • 00:11:21.000 --> 00:11:24.100
  • of that agreement.
  • 00:11:24.110 --> 00:11:26.230
  • So, what is the blessing of that agreement?
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.200
  • If you can keep the conditions, then you can get the blessings.
  • 00:11:28.210 --> 00:11:33.270
  • That's not so in the new covenant.
  • 00:11:33.280 --> 00:11:35.200
  • He says we're blessed because of Jesus.
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:38.110
  • And basically in the new covenant, if you believe Jesus,
  • 00:11:38.120 --> 00:11:40.180
  • you're blessed.
  • 00:11:40.190 --> 00:11:42.050
  • If you believe Jesus, you're blessed.
  • 00:11:42.060 --> 00:11:45.020
  • If you believe Jesus, you're blessed, amen?
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:49.000
  • So, can you see clearly that this is
  • 00:11:49.010 --> 00:11:52.080
  • a performance-based agreement?
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:54.190
  • If you'd do this, then you'll get blessed.
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:56.180
  • And it says you'll be blessed in the city and blessed
  • 00:11:56.190 --> 00:11:58.080
  • in the field, if you do this.
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:12:00.140
  • So, the thing is what if you don't do it?
  • 00:12:00.150 --> 00:12:03.260
  • What if you don't do it?
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:05.060
  • Well, verse 15 tells you what happens if you don't do it.
  • 00:12:05.070 --> 00:12:06.210
  • That's why, you know, verse 15 says, "And if you do not--" He
  • 00:12:06.220 --> 00:12:09.280
  • says, "But if it shall come to pass, if thou," there's
  • 00:12:09.290 --> 00:12:12.170
  • a condition.
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:13.270
  • "If thou will not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God,
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.200
  • to observe to do all his commandments and statutes I
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:17.220
  • command thee this day, these curses shall come upon you."
  • 00:12:17.230 --> 00:12:20.270
  • It's real simple.
  • 00:12:20.280 --> 00:12:22.070
  • He says if you do it, you'll get blessed.
  • 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:23.170
  • If you don't, you won't.
  • 00:12:23.180 --> 00:12:25.230
  • In fact, you'll get cursed if you don't.
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:27.270
  • That's what it is.
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:29.080
  • That's the agreement.
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:30.180
  • And church people can be walking around the whole time, you know,
  • 00:12:30.190 --> 00:12:32.200
  • you know, you know-- oh, let me say something.
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:35.130
  • This is good.
  • 00:12:35.140 --> 00:12:37.040
  • Keep your hats on now.
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:38.150
  • I'm gonna just throw this in here.
  • 00:12:38.160 --> 00:12:39.250
  • Abraham's blessings are mine, amen.
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:42.090
  • Abraham's blessing is-- it is not a part of the blessing
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:46.160
  • or the conditions of the law.
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:49.200
  • Abraham's blessing is the cloak-- the Abrahamic
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:54.190
  • Covenant is a mirror reflection of the new covenant.
  • 00:12:54.200 --> 00:13:00.220
  • In other words, the Abrahamic Covenant is referred to as
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:04.040
  • a covenant of promise.
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:06.130
  • What was the promise?
  • 00:13:06.140 --> 00:13:07.230
  • I'm going to say it to you real straight, right?
  • 00:13:07.240 --> 00:13:09.170
  • The promise from the Abrahamic Covenant was Jesus
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:12.220
  • and the blessings.
  • 00:13:12.230 --> 00:13:15.080
  • That's it.
  • 00:13:15.090 --> 00:13:16.210
  • So what happened is he promised Abraham, Jesus and the blessing.
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:21.260
  • In the new covenant, you see Jesus and the blessing.
  • 00:13:21.270 --> 00:13:26.060
  • There was no condition for Abraham to be blessed
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:29.150
  • except he believed.
  • 00:13:29.160 --> 00:13:34.030
  • So if you believe, you can say, "Abraham's blessings are mine."
  • 00:13:34.040 --> 00:13:37.160
  • That's why I referred to the Abrahamic Covenant as
  • 00:13:37.170 --> 00:13:40.020
  • an everlasting covenant, because it would be-- it will be
  • 00:13:40.030 --> 00:13:43.210
  • fulfilled in the new covenant and it's the mirror reflection
  • 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:47.160
  • of what was to come to pass, a promise that came to pass
  • 00:13:47.170 --> 00:13:51.290
  • in Jesus.
  • 00:13:52.000 --> 00:13:53.250
  • Hallelujah, praise God.
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:55.150
  • But this covenant was a conditional agreement.
  • 00:13:55.160 --> 00:13:58.190
  • You gotta do this to get that.
  • 00:13:58.200 --> 00:14:01.070
  • You gotta perform to do that.
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:03.050
  • You gotta, you gotta, you gotta make sure that happens in order
  • 00:14:03.060 --> 00:14:05.290
  • for that to happen.
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:07.170
  • Isn't that church?
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:09.010
  • Isn't that churches we've known all this time?
  • 00:14:09.020 --> 00:14:11.240
  • We've been goin' from this covenant and we've been telling
  • 00:14:11.250 --> 00:14:14.210
  • everybody what they had to do in order to get God to do what
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:19.090
  • he's already done.
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:22.080
  • And so, that's why you struggle to get healed.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:25.050
  • You struggle to be successful.
  • 00:14:25.060 --> 00:14:27.190
  • You struggle to be righteous.
  • 00:14:27.200 --> 00:14:30.180
  • You struggle in your mind to be redeemed.
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:33.270
  • You struggle to be holy and start doing dumb stuff
  • 00:14:33.280 --> 00:14:37.120
  • like stop putting your makeup on.
  • 00:14:37.130 --> 00:14:39.070
  • Put that stuff on, girl.
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:42.110
  • You struggle, man.
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:45.060
  • Wearing them long burlap dresses and little Dalai Lama things
  • 00:14:45.070 --> 00:14:49.260
  • on your head.
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:51.060
  • You struggle.
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:53.210
  • And that's self-effort under the law, trying to do good.
  • 00:14:53.220 --> 00:15:00.100
  • It doesn't work.
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:02.160
  • And so, after about 20-30 years, when half your life is gone,
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:07.210
  • then you realize there ain't nothin'-- you're either gonna
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:09.200
  • realize it ain't workin' or you're gonna say, "Man,
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:11.140
  • forget this.
  • 00:15:11.150 --> 00:15:12.250
  • I'm going to drink, sleep around.
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:14.060
  • I'm going to do something that I've been tryin' not to do.
  • 00:15:14.070 --> 00:15:16.210
  • I'm gonna get some pants.
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:19.150
  • I'm going to put a bunch of makeup on."
  • 00:15:19.160 --> 00:15:21.090
  • You might not let nobody see it, but you're eventually going,
  • 00:15:21.100 --> 00:15:23.140
  • "I'm gonna do it."
  • 00:15:23.150 --> 00:15:25.150
  • And the whole time, so many people have been in bondage
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:28.150
  • because they've been tryin' to live by an agreement that was
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:31.110
  • between God and Jewish people.
  • 00:15:31.120 --> 00:15:34.210
  • It wasn't even between you in the first place.
  • 00:15:34.220 --> 00:15:37.080
  • And religion took it,
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:40.030
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:45.150
  • Sin-consciousness comes from the law.
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:49.060
  • Follow me, Ken?
  • 00:15:49.070 --> 00:15:50.180
  • The law produces sin-consciousness.
  • 00:15:50.190 --> 00:15:53.180
  • Sin-consciousness produces condemnation.
  • 00:15:53.190 --> 00:15:58.120
  • Condemnation produces self-righteousness.
  • 00:15:58.130 --> 00:16:03.000
  • And self-righteousness keeps you in the flesh.
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:07.230
  • Let me do that again.
  • 00:16:07.240 --> 00:16:09.270
  • The law produces sin-consciousness.
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:12.150
  • That's what it says, I think, Galatians chapter 3.
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:15.070
  • What is the purpose of the law?
  • 00:16:15.080 --> 00:16:16.180
  • To make men more conscious of sin.
  • 00:16:16.190 --> 00:16:20.020
  • The law produces sin-consciousness.
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:22.040
  • I mean, you're thinkin' about sin all the time.
  • 00:16:22.050 --> 00:16:24.130
  • You're thinking about it all the time.
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:25.230
  • You're thinking about how you don't need to say anything
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.040
  • about it if you did sin.
  • 00:16:27.050 --> 00:16:28.140
  • You're thinking about what-- sin-conscious the whole time.
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:30.220
  • You get up in the morning, say, "Lord, forgive me for the sins
  • 00:16:30.230 --> 00:16:32.180
  • I hadn't done yet."
  • 00:16:32.190 --> 00:16:33.290
  • You're sin-conscious all the time.
  • 00:16:34.000 --> 00:16:35.090
  • That sin-consciousness brings you to condemnation, 'cause when
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:38.010
  • you-- when you're just, "I can't keep it.
  • 00:16:38.020 --> 00:16:40.180
  • I can't do it.
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:41.290
  • I keep failing," now you're condemning yourself.
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:44.150
  • You know what real condemnation means?
  • 00:16:44.160 --> 00:16:46.060
  • It means I don't feel like I'm usable.
  • 00:16:46.070 --> 00:16:50.260
  • You know a building that's being condemned, they mark
  • 00:16:50.270 --> 00:16:55.090
  • as no good for use.
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:58.140
  • I feel like I can't be used.
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:17:00.270
  • And you're tryin' to lay hands on the sick and raise the dead
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:03.080
  • with that?
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:05.260
  • Hmm.
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:07.060
  • The condemnation comes.
  • 00:17:07.070 --> 00:17:08.170
  • Now watch what condemnation does.
  • 00:17:08.180 --> 00:17:10.170
  • Now you feel so condemned, you feel like, now I got to--
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:14.150
  • I got to move into what I call self-preservation
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:17.160
  • or self-righteousness.
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:19.170
  • And what that means is, since it doesn't seem like God doin'
  • 00:17:19.180 --> 00:17:23.140
  • nothin' about this, I now become self-righteous and I create
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:28.230
  • religious disciplines to try to get something done that Jesus
  • 00:17:28.240 --> 00:17:34.240
  • has already done.
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:39.090
  • And instead of believing that Jesus has already done it, I am
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:41.200
  • now stuck in self-righteousness and self-righteousness leads me
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:45.010
  • to the flesh, where I am under the law trying to do good
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:50.280
  • through self-effort.
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:56.220
  • I never heard this before.
  • 00:17:56.230 --> 00:17:59.010
  • I'm sure somebody preached it.
  • 00:17:59.020 --> 00:18:00.140
  • I know everything goes around around, but it's just--
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:02.290
  • it just boggled my mind.
  • 00:18:03.000 --> 00:18:04.100
  • Now, let's get through the Scriptures now look at this.
  • 00:18:04.110 --> 00:18:08.170
  • Let's go to 1 Corinthians 1:30.
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:13.010
  • Oh man, it just makes so many things clear to me.
  • 00:18:13.020 --> 00:18:16.210
  • And now I know I wanna spend more time believing what Jesus
  • 00:18:16.220 --> 00:18:19.180
  • has already done as a response.
  • 00:18:19.190 --> 00:18:22.240
  • Remember Taffi'd say it over and over again, "Your
  • 00:18:22.250 --> 00:18:24.110
  • response is everything."
  • 00:18:24.120 --> 00:18:27.160
  • That your response is everything.
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:33.060
  • That crazy stuff that's goin' on man, you know, Jesus is just
  • 00:18:33.070 --> 00:18:38.070
  • good to us.
  • 00:18:38.080 --> 00:18:40.200
  • Yeah, I mean, he really is.
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:42.000
  • He's good to us, man.
  • 00:18:42.010 --> 00:18:43.200
  • I'm talkin' about he's good to us, man.
  • 00:18:43.210 --> 00:18:46.130
  • You know, I'm hesitating whether or not to tell you this, but my
  • 00:18:46.140 --> 00:18:48.290
  • daughter got held up by gunpoint last night.
  • 00:18:49.000 --> 00:18:51.290
  • Stole her car, stole her phone, stole a lot of other things.
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:55.290
  • But they couldn't take her life.
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:58.260
  • That's Jesus, and I have to give him praise.
  • 00:18:58.270 --> 00:19:03.250
  • I have to give him praise.
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:05.160
  • Man, I wrapped my arms around that baby and I just
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:08.210
  • thank God.
  • 00:19:08.220 --> 00:19:10.020
  • Don't tell me pleading the blood don't work.
  • 00:19:10.030 --> 00:19:12.190
  • Don't tell me you don't believe in God work.
  • 00:19:12.200 --> 00:19:14.210
  • And you ain't doin' nothin' wrong.
  • 00:19:14.220 --> 00:19:16.120
  • These days you can just be doin' what you do.
  • 00:19:16.130 --> 00:19:21.240
  • And I'm thinking, man, I wouldn't be nothin' else, 'cause
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:26.060
  • what else is going to help you when you're tryin' to do it
  • 00:19:26.070 --> 00:19:29.080
  • on your own?
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:30.180
  • While I'm sleeping, the blood of Jesus working.
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:35.270
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:19:35.280 --> 00:19:37.080
  • When I don't know what's goin' on, the blood is working.
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:43.090
  • I can't afford to depend and to continue to employ my
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:48.240
  • self-effort, 'cause I've come to the realization there's just
  • 00:19:48.250 --> 00:19:52.280
  • something I can't do.
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:54.180
  • There's stuff I can't do. There's stuff I can't do.
  • 00:19:54.190 --> 00:19:59.170
  • But I know a God who can do all things.
  • 00:19:59.180 --> 00:20:05.180
  • Boy, he's rescued me.
  • 00:20:10.040 --> 00:20:11.140
  • He's rescued my family. He's rescued my friend.
  • 00:20:11.150 --> 00:20:14.070
  • He just keeps doing it, and ain't no-- there's no way
  • 00:20:14.080 --> 00:20:17.060
  • you can set that up in your own self-effort.
  • 00:20:17.070 --> 00:20:20.000
  • How do you do think you can do?
  • 00:20:20.010 --> 00:20:21.250
  • You're trying to, through your self-effort,
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:24.020
  • do something you can't do,
  • 00:20:24.030 --> 00:20:27.220
  • but religion keeps trying to convince you.
  • 00:20:31.120 --> 00:20:34.240
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:20:34.250 --> 00:20:37.030
  • Do you know what an insult it is?
  • 00:20:37.040 --> 00:20:38.130
  • You know what an insult it is to go before God and think,
  • 00:20:38.140 --> 00:20:42.250
  • through your discipline and your self-effort,
  • 00:20:42.260 --> 00:20:47.080
  • you can do or outdo God?
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:53.120
  • Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:20:53.130 --> 00:20:59.170
  • You never will.
  • 00:20:59.180 --> 00:21:01.060
  • You never, ever, ever will outdo God.
  • 00:21:01.070 --> 00:21:05.050
  • I don't care how disciplined you get.
  • 00:21:05.060 --> 00:21:07.040
  • You ain't never-- it's an insult.
  • 00:21:07.050 --> 00:21:09.120
  • What an insult to think that your trust, and your discipline,
  • 00:21:09.130 --> 00:21:13.250
  • and your self-effort can get that job done.
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:19.180
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:21:19.190 --> 00:21:23.210
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:21:23.240 --> 00:21:28.110
  • We trust Jesus.
  • 00:21:28.120 --> 00:21:30.250
  • You trust the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:21:30.260 --> 00:21:32.270
  • When the Holy Ghost starts telling you to pray in tongues,
  • 00:21:32.280 --> 00:21:34.240
  • you don't need to know what for.
  • 00:21:34.250 --> 00:21:38.260
  • He said, "Pray in tongues."
  • 00:21:38.270 --> 00:21:40.060
  • What for?
  • 00:21:40.070 --> 00:21:41.160
  • No, you don't need-- you don't-- you don't go to God, "What for?"
  • 00:21:41.170 --> 00:21:46.160
  • You just let her rip.
  • 00:21:46.170 --> 00:21:49.100
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:21:49.110 --> 00:21:50.210
  • And you just pray until-- somebody say, "Well, how long
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:53.010
  • you got to pray?"
  • 00:21:53.020 --> 00:21:54.110
  • Until peace shows up.
  • 00:21:54.120 --> 00:21:59.270
  • And when peace shows up, it's fine.
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:02.290
  • I can't tell you the number of times that happens.
  • 00:22:03.000 --> 00:22:05.080
  • Things will happen, or God'll put something on your mind.
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:07.230
  • Don't try to figure it out, just pray.
  • 00:22:07.240 --> 00:22:13.000
  • And that's why I thank god for praying in tongues, 'cause
  • 00:22:13.010 --> 00:22:15.280
  • if somethin' goin' on and I don't know what it is, tell me
  • 00:22:15.290 --> 00:22:19.050
  • how am I gonna-- watch this, this is-- the rebellion
  • 00:22:19.060 --> 00:22:23.290
  • to tongues because of self-effort.
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:26.120
  • Part of self-effort is, "I'm going to pray in English."
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:28.240
  • What you going to pray?
  • 00:22:28.250 --> 00:22:30.040
  • You don't know what's goin' on.
  • 00:22:30.050 --> 00:22:33.070
  • You don't know what's going on.
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:36.190
  • Tell me, what are you gonna do?
  • 00:22:36.200 --> 00:22:38.200
  • Well, I know how to pray.
  • 00:22:38.210 --> 00:22:41.000
  • "Dear kind, heavenly Father in your most holy, holy name.
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:46.240
  • O God."
  • 00:22:46.250 --> 00:22:48.120
  • Shut up.
  • 00:22:48.130 --> 00:22:49.250
  • You ain't getting nothing happening.
  • 00:22:49.260 --> 00:22:51.060
  • You don't even know what's goin' on.
  • 00:22:51.070 --> 00:22:52.220
  • You need to trust in this grace gift of speaking in tongues.
  • 00:22:52.230 --> 00:22:58.180
  • I don't know what's happening, but the Holy Ghost on the inside
  • 00:22:58.190 --> 00:23:02.000
  • has illuminated something that's come to my mind.
  • 00:23:02.010 --> 00:23:04.210
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:23:04.220 --> 00:23:10.090
  • And you go at it, praise God.
  • 00:23:10.100 --> 00:23:13.090
  • And then all of a sudden a peace'll come over you,
  • 00:23:13.100 --> 00:23:15.200
  • and you know, whatever it was, it is well.
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:19.030
  • Some of us have had the opportunity to hear
  • 00:23:19.040 --> 00:23:21.110
  • the testimony of what it was at the very time you were
  • 00:23:21.120 --> 00:23:24.170
  • praying, and the Holy Ghost will say, "See there?
  • 00:23:24.180 --> 00:23:26.260
  • That's what I had you doing."
  • 00:23:26.270 --> 00:23:28.200
  • But I don't ask God, "For what?"
  • 00:23:28.210 --> 00:23:32.100
  • It's time to pray, praise God.
  • 00:23:32.110 --> 00:23:34.080
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:23:34.090 --> 00:23:35.180
  • It's time.
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:36.280
  • C'mon, let's pray just a little bit.
  • 00:23:36.290 --> 00:23:38.150
  • [praying in tongues]
  • 00:23:38.160 --> 00:23:48.130
  • [praying in tongues]
  • 00:23:48.140 --> 00:23:52.110
  • Now repeat after me, "I believe I receive what I prayed
  • 00:23:52.120 --> 00:23:56.020
  • in the Holy Ghost, and I release most holy faith for it to come
  • 00:23:56.030 --> 00:24:01.030
  • to pass, amen."
  • 00:24:01.040 --> 00:24:04.150
  • Now, a carnal-minded man will say, "Now, wait a minute.
  • 00:24:04.160 --> 00:24:06.280
  • You don't know what you just prayed."
  • 00:24:06.290 --> 00:24:08.080
  • Now, if you read the Scriptures good, he talks about when you
  • 00:24:08.090 --> 00:24:11.150
  • pray in the spirit.
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:14.140
  • When you pray in the spirit, you're praying wisdom.
  • 00:24:14.150 --> 00:24:19.100
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:24:19.110 --> 00:24:20.200
  • So, I might not know particularly what I said, but I
  • 00:24:20.210 --> 00:24:23.240
  • know according to the Scripture it was good.
  • 00:24:23.250 --> 00:24:27.260
  • It was good.
  • 00:24:27.270 --> 00:24:29.060
  • And that's good too 'cause some of y'all don't need to know what
  • 00:24:29.070 --> 00:24:31.280
  • you were praying about.
  • 00:24:31.290 --> 00:24:33.090
  • It might bring fear in.
  • 00:24:33.100 --> 00:24:35.270
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:24:35.280 --> 00:24:37.180
  • But you praying in the Holy Ghost, you've released your
  • 00:24:37.190 --> 00:24:39.230
  • faith to take care of it.
  • 00:24:39.240 --> 00:24:41.110
  • And you don't know what you are praying,
  • 00:24:41.120 --> 00:24:42.210
  • but you know it was good.
  • 00:24:42.220 --> 00:24:44.200
  • So, even if the prayer was to get you ready for something
  • 00:24:44.210 --> 00:24:46.200
  • you're gettin' ready to walk into that would have normally
  • 00:24:46.210 --> 00:24:49.200
  • put fear on the inside of you, you're able to walk into it
  • 00:24:49.210 --> 00:24:52.270
  • because of that grace gift of speaking in tongues.
  • 00:24:52.280 --> 00:24:55.040
  • I'm gonna keep talkin' about tongues.
  • 00:24:55.050 --> 00:24:56.170
  • I don't care who it offends.
  • 00:24:56.180 --> 00:24:59.030
  • It's the Word of God.
  • 00:24:59.040 --> 00:25:00.160
  • If it wasn't in the Bible, I wouldn't preach it.
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:01.260
  • But if it's in there, we got to deal with it.
