  • 00:00:07.070 --> 00:00:12.040
  • the perfecting of phoniness in church.
  • 00:00:12.050 --> 00:00:19.180
  • You've got to get to the place where you are all right with
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:24.080

  • female: It's a blessing straight from heaven.
  • 00:00:34.140 --> 00:00:37.170
  • Anything with the Word of God is perfect.
  • 00:00:37.180 --> 00:00:40.170
  • Creflo: And the Word of God in the mouth of a believer,
  • 00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:43.150
  • coming out of your mouth, produces power,
  • 00:00:43.160 --> 00:00:45.250
  • produces change.
  • 00:00:45.260 --> 00:00:47.060

  • so let's vow to make it a better place.

  • Oh, it's time to live a new life.
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:19.180

  • so we embrace your love today.
  • 00:01:26.290 --> 00:01:30.140
  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:30.150 --> 00:01:32.250
  • Creflo: Man, it's time, it's time.
  • 00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:36.220
  • Hold on, it's about to come.
  • 00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:38.080
  • Just hold on, a breakthrough is about to come.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:40.030
  • Hold on, the harvest is about to come.
  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:42.100
  • Hold on, the peace is about to come.
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:44.100
  • Hold on, glory to God, your promotion is about to come.
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:47.130
  • Hold it, hold on.
  • 00:01:47.140 --> 00:01:48.250
  • Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on.
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:51.190
  • Now, honey, when they see you, they swing about.
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:53.130
  • "Whatcha doin'?" "I'm holdin' on."
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:01:55.260
  • Just hang in there, man.
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:57.170
  • Hang in there.
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:01:58.290
  • Don't quit now. Don't quit now.
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.190
  • Due season always comes, and since due season always comes,
  • 00:02:01.200 --> 00:02:05.090
  • it's no longer "if" but "when."
  • 00:02:05.100 --> 00:02:08.000
  • It's not "if the breakthrough comes," but "when it comes."
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:10.150
  • It's not "if the promotion come," but "when it comes."
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:12.210
  • It's not "if the peace will come," but "when it comes."
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:15.020
  • It's not "if my marriage start workin' out," it's "when," it's
  • 00:02:15.030 --> 00:02:18.040
  • "when," it's "when," because Jesus has already done the work,
  • 00:02:18.050 --> 00:02:21.120
  • and we have our faith in the finished works of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:02:21.130 --> 00:02:25.210
  • hallelujah, glory be to God.
  • 00:02:25.220 --> 00:02:32.120
  • Thank you, baby, yeah.
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:34.170
  • Yeah, she got that thing right.
  • 00:02:34.180 --> 00:02:37.090
  • That baby got the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:02:37.100 --> 00:02:41.160
  • [laughing]
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:47.180
  • Oh, that was deep right there, boy.
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:54.240
  • All right, verse 6, "But now hath he obtained a more
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:57.190
  • excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a
  • 00:02:57.200 --> 00:03:03.100
  • better covenant--" so he's also the mediator
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:08.050
  • of better prayer, right?
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:09.210
  • "Of a better covenant, which was established upon--" what?
  • 00:03:09.220 --> 00:03:13.120
  • "Better promises."
  • 00:03:13.130 --> 00:03:14.230
  • Why are we continuing to try to live under a covenant when there
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:19.090
  • is a better one with better promises?
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:23.050
  • And that is the New Covenant.
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:25.020
  • Now, I now wanna show you somethin' that--I'm gon' show
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:30.280
  • you more than what this says.
  • 00:03:30.290 --> 00:03:33.140
  • I wanna show you and pull off the covers of how people are
  • 00:03:33.150 --> 00:03:38.150
  • becoming religiously deceived.
  • 00:03:38.160 --> 00:03:42.230
  • Somethin' about deception.
  • 00:03:42.240 --> 00:03:44.200
  • "Deception" is "when you think you're right,
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:46.260
  • but you're wrong, but you think you're right," and I wanna show
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:51.120
  • you this, and I wanna deal with this by dealing with a subject
  • 00:03:51.130 --> 00:03:54.080
  • that we dealt with this past Wednesday that I just think
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:57.160
  • it's so important.
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:58.260
  • Then I wanna ask you this question because I've heard
  • 00:03:58.270 --> 00:04:00.240
  • answers to this question by a lot of powerful people.
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:06.200
  • And, you know what happens under the grace?
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:10.030
  • It's grace--when you get grace, you get truth,
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:13.190
  • and it straightens your impression of God.
  • 00:04:13.200 --> 00:04:16.140
  • You now have the right image of who God is,
  • 00:04:16.150 --> 00:04:21.180
  • and it challenges the old image you had,
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:24.140
  • the old image that "God took my mom or dad," or "God caused the
  • 00:04:24.150 --> 00:04:28.130
  • wreck," or "God was doin' this bad thing to teach me somethin',
  • 00:04:28.140 --> 00:04:32.130
  • or, you know, "God want me to stay broke all my life," or
  • 00:04:32.140 --> 00:04:37.010
  • "Maybe it's God's will for me to be unhappy so that other--"
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:40.280
  • you have the wrong impression of God.
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:42.080
  • You see God as a judge.
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:43.230
  • You see God as someone who causes sickness.
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:47.180
  • You see God as someone who took the little kid who died in a car
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:50.260
  • wreck, and then we just talk about,
  • 00:04:50.270 --> 00:04:53.200
  • you know, well, "The Lord works in mysterious ways,
  • 00:04:53.210 --> 00:04:58.060
  • his wonders to perform."
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:05:00.060
  • It ain't a mystery at all if the Word is rightly divided,
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:04.070
  • and that needs to be straightened out.
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:05.280
  • How did all that happen?
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:07.270
  • Well, I wanna use this illustration.
  • 00:05:07.280 --> 00:05:09.190
  • I want you to go to John chapter 9:31,
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:12.250
  • and just work with me here.
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:14.050
  • I'm gonna ask you some questions 'cause
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:15.150
  • I wanna provoke your thinking.
  • 00:05:15.160 --> 00:05:17.000
  • I don't wanna just say this.
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:18.150
  • I want you to think through this process with me,
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:22.010
  • so it's not just a statement I wanna make.
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:24.080
  • I want you to think through this process.
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:28.040
  • John chapter 9, in 31.
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:31.080
  • I want you to read verse 31 out loud with me.
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:34.040
  • Ready?
  • 00:05:34.050 --> 00:05:35.180
  • Read.
  • 00:05:35.190 --> 00:05:37.020
  • "Now we know that God heareth not sinners,
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:40.090
  • but if any man be a worshipper of God, and does--"
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:48.160
  • Okay, keep that Scripture up.
  • 00:05:48.170 --> 00:05:51.020
  • I want you to stare at it, and I'm gonna ask you a question.
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:56.200
  • Does God answer the prayer of sinners?
  • 00:05:56.210 --> 00:06:00.160
  • All right, who says, "Yes"?
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:03.020
  • Raise your hands.
  • 00:06:03.030 --> 00:06:04.130
  • Put your hands down.
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:05.230
  • Who says, "No"? Raise your hands.
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:09.040
  • One, I almost did pretty good--two.
  • 00:06:09.050 --> 00:06:11.230
  • All right, for all of you who raised your hands,
  • 00:06:11.240 --> 00:06:15.010
  • how can you say that that's not the truth?
  • 00:06:15.020 --> 00:06:19.160
  • Because that's just right.
  • 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:20.280
  • That's what he says.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.080
  • Isn't that what he said? Isn't that what he said?
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:24.170
  • What'd it say?
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.040
  • It say, "Now we know that God heareth not sinners."
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:30.050
  • All right, let me ask you: Do you believe
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:33.260
  • that God hears sinners?
  • 00:06:33.270 --> 00:06:37.010
  • But it says--you know, don't get mad at me.
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:44.010
  • It's in the Word. It's in the Word.
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:48.160
  • It's in the Word: "Now we know that God heareth not sinners."
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:55.150
  • And I asked you, "Do you believe God hears sinners?"
  • 00:06:55.160 --> 00:06:57.250
  • You're like, "Yes."
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:59.230
  • Wouldn't you be contradicting what the Word said?
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:06.020
  • No?
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:07.230
  • Y'all just rebellious, ain't ya?
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:10.190
  • But it's right there.
  • 00:07:10.200 --> 00:07:13.060
  • It says, "Now we know that God heareth not sinners."
  • 00:07:13.070 --> 00:07:19.140
  • And then you've been taught to live by the Word,
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:22.150
  • and if it's in the Word then it is what it is 'cause
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:26.280
  • it's in the Word.
  • 00:07:26.290 --> 00:07:28.080
  • And right there is in the Word.
  • 00:07:28.090 --> 00:07:29.180
  • It's in the Scriptures, in your Bible, your Bile.
  • 00:07:29.190 --> 00:07:31.070
  • It's on the screen.
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:35.020
  • So does God not--does he not hear sinners?
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:42.250
  • See, come on, stick with what you had.
  • 00:07:42.260 --> 00:07:44.220
  • Don't let me talk you out of what you--some of y'all,
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:47.160
  • "Well, now you put it like that."
  • 00:07:47.170 --> 00:07:51.070
  • Does God hear the prayer of a sinner?
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:58.230
  • But what does that say?
  • 00:07:58.240 --> 00:08:02.220
  • So are you contradicting the Word?
  • 00:08:02.230 --> 00:08:06.060
  • You must be 'cause he says he "heareth not sinners."
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:13.280
  • It's talkin' about somethin' else?
  • 00:08:13.290 --> 00:08:15.120
  • Well, how am I supposed to know he talkin' about somethin' else
  • 00:08:15.130 --> 00:08:17.020
  • when I'm just showin' you just this one Scripture?
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:19.120
  • How am I supposed to know he's talkin' about somethin' else?
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:21.210
  • It's just that one Scripture.
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:23.010
  • It's just that one Scripture right there.
  • 00:08:23.020 --> 00:08:24.120
  • I showed you the Word.
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:25.220
  • That's that one Scripture right there.
  • 00:08:25.230 --> 00:08:29.090
  • All right, now, watch this: How many of you remember when them
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:31.160
  • Jehovah Witnesses used to knock on your
  • 00:08:31.170 --> 00:08:33.000
  • door early Saturday mornin'?
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:35.130
  • All right, do you remember the Jehovah Witness coming to your
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:37.050
  • door and saying to you that you need to get your life right
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:40.130
  • because only 144.000 goin' to heaven?
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:44.190
  • How many of y'all remember that, "144.000 go to heaven"?
  • 00:08:44.200 --> 00:08:47.040
  • I heard that, and I thought, "Well,
  • 00:08:47.050 --> 00:08:50.150
  • I don't know the Bible anyway.
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:52.120
  • Y'all can just tell me anyway."
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:53.220
  • And they open their Bible up, and they showed me,
  • 00:08:53.230 --> 00:08:55.030
  • and my heart start beatin' fast.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:56.230
  • I'm like, "Goddog, there it go, '144.000 goin' to heaven.'"
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:09:00.170
  • And then that's all they showed me was just that one Scripture,
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:03.060
  • 144.000 goin' to heaven.
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:05.000
  • And when I saw that one Scripture,
  • 00:09:05.010 --> 00:09:06.100
  • I was just conflicted.
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:09.050
  • I was like, "Okay, all right, now let me see here.
  • 00:09:09.060 --> 00:09:11.230
  • So I just found out that he had a limit-limit."
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:18.230
  • Ain't know nothin'--I didn't know anything
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:20.240
  • about no limitation.
  • 00:09:20.250 --> 00:09:22.060
  • Ain't nobody told me nothin' about no 144--that was 'cause,
  • 00:09:22.070 --> 00:09:24.140
  • if I knew it was 144.000, I might've got saved a long time
  • 00:09:24.150 --> 00:09:27.040
  • ago, but now I'm tryin' figure out,
  • 00:09:27.050 --> 00:09:30.160
  • "Am I gon' make it?"
  • 00:09:30.170 --> 00:09:31.260
  • I'm wondering, you know, "It's been a long time
  • 00:09:31.270 --> 00:09:33.140
  • since that was out there.
  • 00:09:33.150 --> 00:09:34.240
  • I'm sure they got about 144.000 now."
  • 00:09:34.250 --> 00:09:37.140
  • And then I'm thinkin', "If they got 144.000 now,
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:41.000
  • then that mean, how you gon' just not let me,
  • 00:09:41.010 --> 00:09:44.010
  • you know, have a opportunity to be a part of the 144.000?"
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:47.290
  • And I didn't even know what's goin' on.
  • 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:50.080
  • "What kind of God is this?"
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:51.250
  • I was like, 144.000?
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:53.140
  • "I know you got about 144.000.
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:55.010
  • Now I'm mad.
  • 00:09:55.020 --> 00:09:56.200
  • Somethin' wrong with this kind of God--only 144.000?
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:59.260
  • That ain't even right.
  • 00:09:59.270 --> 00:10:01.230
  • That ain't right.
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:03.060
  • How I'm gon' get in?"
  • 00:10:03.070 --> 00:10:04.160
  • So even though, you know, I get saved and everything,
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:06.030
  • I can't get in?"
  • 00:10:06.040 --> 00:10:07.140
  • "'Cause we've reached the limit. I'm sorry.
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:09.110
  • You can't either in because we already have met our quota."
  • 00:10:09.120 --> 00:10:18.110
  • So I decided to pick the Bible up.
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:20.220
  • I just knew, just like some of you,
  • 00:10:20.230 --> 00:10:23.010
  • "No, that's just not what that Scripture in context means."
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:26.180
  • I just knew that's not God.
  • 00:10:26.190 --> 00:10:30.200
  • That means he's trying to keep me out.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:33.280
  • So I got my Bible, and I said, "There's gotta be somethin'."
  • 00:10:33.290 --> 00:10:38.010
  • That's why I learn by context.
  • 00:10:38.020 --> 00:10:39.110
  • I said, "Let me read the whole chapter."
  • 00:10:39.120 --> 00:10:41.000
  • And then it talks about 144.000 Jews,
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:45.080
  • and then he said--and then--and then I saw a number that
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:53.270
  • could not be a number.
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:55.070
  • I'm like, "There, I go, right there.
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:56.170
  • Right there in that number.
  • 00:10:56.180 --> 00:10:57.270
  • The number--you can't be numbered."
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:59.190
  • I'm like, "Oh, my gosh."
  • 00:10:59.200 --> 00:11:01.130
  • I was about to buy this thing, and ain't no way I'm gon' stay
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:04.270
  • saved if I ain't gon' go in.
  • 00:11:04.280 --> 00:11:06.130
  • I mean, I just go back then?
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:09.140
  • What happened?
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:13.170
  • Context declared the application of a Scripture,
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:20.210
  • and if you don't understand the context that that one Scripture
  • 00:11:20.220 --> 00:11:25.190
  • appears in, if you just lift that one Scripture out of
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:30.130
  • context and tell me, try to create a doctrine off that one
  • 00:11:30.140 --> 00:11:34.050
  • Scripture without paying attention to the whole context,
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:36.280
  • you could be spreading a doctrine that's ruinin' people's
  • 00:11:36.290 --> 00:11:41.270
  • lives, that's dominating, in a wrong way,
  • 00:11:41.280 --> 00:11:45.020
  • the way they think 'cause you talkin' about what the Bible say
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:47.210
  • with one line, and you hadn't read the whole context.
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:54.290
  • And we're so busy talkin' about "Well,
  • 00:11:55.000 --> 00:11:56.190
  • I'll tell you what the Scripture mean," and then you look up
  • 00:11:56.200 --> 00:11:58.100
  • the Greek and Hebrew.
  • 00:11:58.110 --> 00:11:59.210
  • You could look up the Greek and Hebrew all day long and ignore
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.170
  • context, and it's still wrong.
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:04.290
  • "Well, the Greek word of 'sinner' is--"
  • 00:12:05.000 --> 00:12:08.090
  • I don't care about no Greek.
  • 00:12:08.100 --> 00:12:09.190
  • What does the context say in English?
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:12.000
  • I ain't Greek. I don't speak Greek.
  • 00:12:12.010 --> 00:12:15.180
  • There nothin' wrong with goin' to look at Greek and Hebrew
  • 00:12:15.190 --> 00:12:18.190
  • language, but I'm just sayin' I want you to look and see what's
  • 00:12:18.200 --> 00:12:21.010
  • been happening here.
  • 00:12:21.020 --> 00:12:23.080
  • Let me give you an illustration, and then we'll find the context
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:25.010
  • of this 'cause I agree with you, but I have to show you in
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:29.170
  • context why that is not gonna be true 'cause I've heard 'em.
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:34.180
  • They say, "Well, you know, God doesn't hear the prayer
  • 00:12:34.190 --> 00:12:36.170
  • of sinners, and the only prayer he hears of a sinner is
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:40.030
  • when he repents."
  • 00:12:40.040 --> 00:12:42.220
  • I'm thinkin', "Well, if he gon' hear that one prayer,
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:44.170
  • how come he can't hear the rest of 'em?
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:47.290
  • What kind of God--is this a bipolar God y'all talkin' about?
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:49.270
  • Who is this?"
  • 00:12:49.280 --> 00:12:52.020
  • And that's what the world--that's why they look
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:54.270
  • at us like that.
  • 00:12:54.280 --> 00:12:56.070
  • We come up with these strange rules for God.
  • 00:12:56.080 --> 00:13:02.000
  • "Well--" and then they talk about sinners like they're no
  • 00:13:02.010 --> 00:13:06.180
  • longer--how do I explain this?
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:10.170
  • It's like for you to--what they're saying--well,
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:13.070
  • you have to see in context.
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:14.170
  • I can't say what until you see where the word
  • 00:13:14.180 --> 00:13:16.170
  • "sinner" came from.
  • 00:13:16.180 --> 00:13:17.270
  • They're actually calling Jesus a sinner 'cause what he did on
  • 00:13:17.280 --> 00:13:20.280
  • the Sabbath day.
  • 00:13:20.290 --> 00:13:22.080
  • Let me give you an illustration.
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:23.180
  • Let's say I wrote you a letter, or you were involved in
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:25.240
  • a conversation, and the conversation was about cookies,
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:28.120
  • and I said to you, I said, "Man, I really love cookies.
  • 00:13:28.130 --> 00:13:34.220
  • I think they're the greatest creation that any chef could've
  • 00:13:34.230 --> 00:13:43.180
  • come up with.
  • 00:13:43.190 --> 00:13:45.160
  • All right, and I'm talkin' to you about my love of cookies.
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:48.080
  • I'm talkin' to you about how awesome cookies are.
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:50.210
  • I even told you my favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin cookies
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:57.140
  • from Whole Food in Buckhead on the right side when enter in.
  • 00:13:57.150 --> 00:14:07.000
  • But then I made this statement: I don't
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:11.020
  • like chocolate chip cookies.
  • 00:14:11.030 --> 00:14:16.010
  • They are not to my satisfaction, and I will not partake of them.
  • 00:14:16.020 --> 00:14:23.030
  • So you come and lift up that line,
  • 00:14:23.040 --> 00:14:26.020
  • "I do not like chocolate chip cookies," and then some guy adds
  • 00:14:26.030 --> 00:14:29.280
  • to it because he's not readin' the context of the conversation,
  • 00:14:29.290 --> 00:14:33.120
  • and he says, "He don't like cookies."
  • 00:14:33.130 --> 00:14:39.240
  • And I'm like, "Where you get that from?
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:43.010
  • Where?" "Right here.
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:44.110
  • See that?
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:45.210
  • You said you don't like chocolate chip cookies,
  • 00:14:45.220 --> 00:14:47.070
  • and you would prefer--they're not satisfyin' to your taste."
  • 00:14:47.080 --> 00:14:49.260
  • "Yeah, I said I didn't like chocolate chip cookies,
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:51.250
  • but you cannot assume from that one statement that
  • 00:14:51.260 --> 00:14:55.170
  • I don't like cookies.
  • 00:14:55.180 --> 00:14:57.040
  • So you gotta go back and read the whole context of what
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:14:59.070
  • I was talking about.
  • 00:14:59.080 --> 00:15:00.200
  • In fact, I was tellin' you about how much I love cookies."
  • 00:15:00.210 --> 00:15:04.050
  • I even told you the cookies I really like.
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:09.230
  • There was a thing on the other week.
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:12.260
  • I had a cheat day.
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:14.200
  • I like to take a cheat day because it kind of stirs up
  • 00:15:14.210 --> 00:15:16.240
  • my leptin level.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.120
  • That's a fat hormone that kind of helps me to continue to burn
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.200
  • fat so I don't get stuck at a place, right?
  • 00:15:20.210 --> 00:15:23.010
  • And Taffi was speaking somewhere,
  • 00:15:23.020 --> 00:15:26.130
  • and I went to Netflix and looked at--it's this new thing called
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:30.160
  • "When They See Us."
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:31.260
  • I think that's the name of it.
  • 00:15:31.270 --> 00:15:33.060
  • And when I--I sat, and I looked at it,
  • 00:15:33.070 --> 00:15:35.270
  • and then, when it came on television,
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:38.030
  • I thought, "Well, this is probably gon' be short because
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:39.240
  • they don't have any evidence."
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:41.260
  • You know, I'm sittin' up--
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:43.060
  • There's no physical evidence, no DNA matches,
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:45.090
  • "Oh, this is absolutely--I mean, something's gotta be wrong if
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:47.190
  • you find these guys guilty."
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:49.070
  • And I thought, "Well, it's gonna be,
  • 00:15:49.080 --> 00:15:50.170
  • you know, short," and so I got me--I think my limit of that day
  • 00:15:50.180 --> 00:15:53.100
  • was three oatmeal cookies.
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:55.090
  • They had to be small, three small oatmeal cookies.
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:57.060
  • Same identical ingredients, but they were small.
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:59.010
  • And so I got the three oatmeal cookies,
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:00.190
  • and I'm eating-- "Oh, it's good."
  • 00:16:00.200 --> 00:16:02.050
  • And then it turned out that they,
  • 00:16:02.060 --> 00:16:03.250
  • like, pronounced them guilty.
  • 00:16:03.260 --> 00:16:05.250
  • And I'm thinkin', "How can they do that?"
  • 00:16:05.260 --> 00:16:07.250
  • And I'm like, "Taffi, she ain't here--oh."
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:13.170
  • And then I kept lookin', and then I was gettin' real
  • 00:16:13.180 --> 00:16:15.080
  • bothered, you know, the--and then the friend that went.
  • 00:16:15.090 --> 00:16:19.130
  • He just went 'cause he was tryin' to be a good friend,
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:22.220
  • and they got him hooked in, and I'm like,
  • 00:16:22.230 --> 00:16:24.210
  • "Oh, I need some Comforter.
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:27.020
  • God? Jesus?"
  • 00:16:27.030 --> 00:16:29.050
  • And weren't nobody physically there to comfort my emotional
  • 00:16:29.060 --> 00:16:33.080
  • thing that I was going through, and I remembered,
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:36.060
  • in the cabinet I had a friend that sticketh
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:38.060
  • closer than any brother.
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:40.060
  • [laughing]
  • 00:16:40.070 --> 00:16:42.070
  • I'm eatin' the oatmeal cookies, and I'm like,
  • 00:16:47.000 --> 00:16:49.180
  • "Oh, no, you ain't got no evidence.
  • 00:16:49.190 --> 00:16:52.210
  • Oh, no, she didn't call 'em 'animals.'
  • 00:16:52.220 --> 00:16:55.010
  • She call 'em--what?
  • 00:16:55.020 --> 00:16:58.110
  • No, wait, he took a-- Oh, man."
  • 00:16:58.120 --> 00:17:01.270
  • And now I reached in there, and I'm like,
  • 00:17:01.280 --> 00:17:03.100
  • "Oh, my God there ain't no more--oh,
  • 00:17:03.110 --> 00:17:04.200
  • I sat here and ate all this whole bag?"
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:07.270
  • Taffi come home, like, "You didn't eat that whole bag?"
  • 00:17:07.280 --> 00:17:09.260
  • "Well, baby, I was lookin' for you."
  • 00:17:09.270 --> 00:17:14.210
  • So the context is "I like cookies," but you only took out
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:24.150
  • "I don't like chocolate chip cookies," and you made doctrine,
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:29.180
  • you made religion, you added stuff to it,
  • 00:17:29.190 --> 00:17:32.160
  • and it wasn't the truth at all.
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:36.290
  • That's the same way men have done this Scripture here.
  • 00:17:37.000 --> 00:17:41.150
  • Now let's back up to verse 14 and see what he said.
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:45.090
  • Now, "context" is not only the information that we missed out
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:49.280
  • on, but it's the attitude and the atmosphere that was being
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:55.200
  • created by the situation.
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:58.140
  • Now, you remember when this guy was born blind,
  • 00:17:58.150 --> 00:18:04.060
  • and the disciples asked the question,
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:06.220
  • "Whose fault is it that this guy is born blind?
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:10.120
  • Was it his mother or his father?"
  • 00:18:10.130 --> 00:18:12.010
  • Jesus said, "Neither," he says, "but that I may work the works
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:16.250
  • of God and then you see the glory of God."
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:19.150
  • He proceeds on down to the Scripture,
  • 00:18:19.160 --> 00:18:21.250
  • and he then takes this man on the Sabbath day,
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:27.170
  • and there was a law that said,
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:30.120
  • "No work should be done on the Sabbath."
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:31.220
  • One guy went to pick up sticks, and they stoned him because he
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:33.290
  • worked on the Sabbath, and so they were tryin' to say that you
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:38.290
  • can't even do miracles either.
  • 00:18:39.000 --> 00:18:41.040
  • And so, we pick up at verse 14.
  • 00:18:41.050 --> 00:18:43.030
  • Now watch the context, the atmosphere,
  • 00:18:43.040 --> 00:18:45.000
  • and all this stuff.
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:46.120
  • Now, "And it was the Sabbath day when Jesus made the clay,
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:50.110
  • and he opened his eyes."
  • 00:18:50.120 --> 00:18:53.260
  • So Jesus makes clay, puts it on his eyes.
  • 00:18:53.270 --> 00:18:56.020
  • Man had never seen before, was born blind.
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:59.070
  • Verse 15: "Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:03.150
  • had received his sight, and he said unto them,
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:08.160
  • 'He put clay upon my eyes, I washed,
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:12.160
  • and I do see,'" right?
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:17.030
  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:19:17.040 --> 00:19:18.140
  • Next verse, "Therefore, said some of the Pharisees,
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:21.000
  • 'This man is not of God because he keepeth
  • 00:19:21.010 --> 00:19:25.230
  • not the Sabbath day.'"
  • 00:19:25.240 --> 00:19:27.150
  • So they're living under the law,
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:30.060
  • and to them, they were like, "This guy just broke the law."
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:36.180
  • He says, "Others said, 'How can a man that is a sinner--'"
  • 00:19:36.190 --> 00:19:41.020
  • So they're just--now they're concluding he's a sinner.
  • 00:19:41.030 --> 00:19:43.210
  • "How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles?"
  • 00:19:43.220 --> 00:19:48.140
  • Let me put it like this: They were also saying,
  • 00:19:48.150 --> 00:19:51.160
  • "How can a man who's an unbeliever do such miracles?"
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:57.110
  • "And there was a division among them."
  • 00:19:57.120 --> 00:20:01.110
  • 'Cause you're not a sinner cause you sin.
  • 00:20:01.120 --> 00:20:04.120
  • That's a whole new sermon.
  • 00:20:04.130 --> 00:20:05.220
  • But you're sinner because of the old man that's
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:07.170
  • on the inside of you.
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:08.290
  • When you got born again, you got rid of the old man.
  • 00:20:09.000 --> 00:20:10.200
  • You got a new creation, and the new creation will give you a new
  • 00:20:10.210 --> 00:20:13.100
  • fruit, but you still sin even with the new creation because
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:16.060
  • you're still tryin' to renew your mind.
  • 00:20:16.070 --> 00:20:18.240
  • Does that make sense to everybody?
  • 00:20:18.250 --> 00:20:22.170
  • Now watch this, verse 17: "They say unto the blind man--"
  • 00:20:22.180 --> 00:20:26.220
  • so they're talkin' to the blind man again,
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:28.270
  • who's no longer blind--
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:30.210
  • "'What sayest thou of him,
  • 00:20:30.220 --> 00:20:32.130
  • that he hath opened thine eyes?'
  • 00:20:32.140 --> 00:20:35.210
  • Now, he said, 'Is he a prophet?'"
  • 00:20:35.220 --> 00:20:39.170
  • Verse 18: "But the Jews did not believe concerning him--"
  • 00:20:39.180 --> 00:20:44.260
  • that's a problem-- "that he had been blind--"
  • 00:20:44.270 --> 00:20:48.060
  • they didn't believe the blind man was blind--
  • 00:20:48.070 --> 00:20:50.100
  • "and that he received his sight, until they called the
  • 00:20:50.110 --> 00:20:54.070
  • parents of him that had received his sight."
  • 00:20:54.080 --> 00:20:56.160
  • So they say, "We don't believe you.
  • 00:20:56.170 --> 00:20:57.280
  • We're gon' call your mom and dad."
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:21:00.040
  • All right, next verse: "And they asked them,
  • 00:21:00.050 --> 00:21:03.020
  • saying, 'Is this your son, who you say was born blind?
  • 00:21:03.030 --> 00:21:08.230
  • How then doth he now see?'"
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:12.060
  • Next verse, "His parents answered them and said,
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:15.210
  • 'We know that this is our son, and we know that he was born
  • 00:21:15.220 --> 00:21:19.250
  • blind,'" next verse, "but by what means he now seeth,
  • 00:21:19.260 --> 00:21:25.250
  • we know not, or who has opened his eyes, we know not.
  • 00:21:25.260 --> 00:21:30.140
  • He is of age. Ask him."
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:38.290
  • In other words, "He grown. Ask him.
  • 00:21:39.000 --> 00:21:41.240
  • Why you talkin' to us?"
  • 00:21:41.250 --> 00:21:44.050
  • He said, "He's of age. Ask him.
  • 00:21:44.060 --> 00:21:46.130
  • He shall speak for himself."
  • 00:21:46.140 --> 00:21:49.000
  • Next verse, "These words spake his parents,
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:54.020
  • because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had agreed already,
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:58.080
  • that if any man did confess that he was Christ,
  • 00:21:58.090 --> 00:22:01.230
  • he should be put out of the synagogue."
  • 00:22:01.240 --> 00:22:04.190
  • Now, watch this: "Therefore said his parents,
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:09.190
  • 'He's of age. Ask him.'"
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:15.110
  • Next, "Then again called they he,
  • 00:22:15.120 --> 00:22:20.190
  • the man that was blind."
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:22.020
  • Now, how many of you know he about gettin' ready to
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:25.050
  • trip a little bit?
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:27.130
  • "How many times y'all gon' ask me?"
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.270
  • All right, look at the setting, "He even asked me the same--I'm
  • 00:22:28.280 --> 00:22:31.270
  • gon' ask you the same--"
  • 00:22:31.280 --> 00:22:33.070
  • "And he said unto him, 'Give God the praise.'"
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:38.000
  • So he's tellin' the blind man who's no longer blind,
  • 00:22:38.010 --> 00:22:39.120
  • "Give God the praise."
  • 00:22:39.130 --> 00:22:41.000
  • Now, watch this: "We know that this man is a sinner."
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:45.050
  • That's a real weird contradiction.
  • 00:22:45.060 --> 00:22:47.180
  • On one hand, "Give him a praise," on the other hand,
  • 00:22:47.190 --> 00:22:50.040
  • "He's a sinner."
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:52.040
  • By your own traditions, you know that God doesn't do miracles
  • 00:22:52.050 --> 00:22:55.050
  • through sinners or through unbelievers,
  • 00:22:55.060 --> 00:22:58.190
  • and, yet you say, "Give him the praise for me no longer bein'
  • 00:22:58.200 --> 00:23:02.090
  • blind," but then he's a sinner.
  • 00:23:02.100 --> 00:23:04.270
  • All right, watch this: "He answered and said,
  • 00:23:04.280 --> 00:23:08.030
  • 'Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not.
  • 00:23:08.040 --> 00:23:13.140
  • One thing I know is that, whereas I was blind,
  • 00:23:13.150 --> 00:23:18.060
  • now I see.
  • 00:23:18.070 --> 00:23:21.110
  • So I don't know about all that tom foolery y'all talkin' about.
  • 00:23:21.120 --> 00:23:23.170
  • I don't know nothin' about all that,
  • 00:23:23.180 --> 00:23:24.270
  • you know, "Is he a sinner?
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:26.070
  • Is he a believer?"
  • 00:23:26.080 --> 00:23:27.170
  • Who's supposed to do what, how they supposed to do,
  • 00:23:27.180 --> 00:23:28.280
  • I don't know nothin'. I don't go to church.
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:34.090
  • This church folks' drama right here.
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:36.080
  • I don't go to church.
  • 00:23:36.090 --> 00:23:37.180
  • All I know is I was blind, and now I can see.'"
  • 00:23:37.190 --> 00:23:42.110
  • announcer: Did you know every failure in a Christian's life is
  • 00:23:43.100 --> 00:23:46.070
  • a prayer failure?
  • 00:23:46.080 --> 00:23:47.250
  • God desires for you to succeed in every area of your life.
  • 00:23:47.260 --> 00:23:51.140
  • One sure way to see success is by praying in the Spirit.

  • Creflo: Hey, let's go to social media and get some
  • 00:24:43.200 --> 00:24:45.020
  • questions, and this is a good one:
  • 00:24:45.030 --> 00:24:47.170
  • Is speaking in tongues real?
  • 00:24:47.180 --> 00:24:50.270
  • Okay, it's real according to the Bible.
  • 00:24:50.280 --> 00:24:54.070
  • It's real according to Scripture.
  • 00:24:54.080 --> 00:24:56.100
  • It's real according to my life.
  • 00:24:56.110 --> 00:24:58.190
  • When you talk about somethin' being real,
  • 00:24:58.200 --> 00:25:01.180
  • you know, I think what you're asking is,
  • 00:25:01.190 --> 00:25:03.210
  • you know, the reality of speakin' in tongues.
  • 00:25:03.220 --> 00:25:05.170
  • Oh, absolutely, the Bible talks about it in the book of Acts,
  • 00:25:05.180 --> 00:25:09.040
  • 1 Corinthians chapter 14.
  • 00:25:09.050 --> 00:25:11.030
  • In fact, I just finished doin' several series on the power
  • 00:25:11.040 --> 00:25:14.090
  • of speakin' in tongues.
  • 00:25:14.100 --> 00:25:15.240
  • You know, when you speak in tongues,
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:17.120
  • you increase your intimacy with God.
  • 00:25:17.130 --> 00:25:19.090
  • You allow the peace that Jesus left you to
  • 00:25:19.100 --> 00:25:22.130
  • show up in your life.
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:24.040
  • It will provide guidance and direction.
  • 00:25:24.050 --> 00:25:26.270
  • Wisdom will be provided, and it will strengthen you.
  • 00:25:26.280 --> 00:25:29.210
  • The Bible says in the book of Jude that you build up yourself,
  • 00:25:29.220 --> 00:25:34.250
  • your spirit, your soul, and your body.
  • 00:25:34.260 --> 00:25:36.200
  • You "build up yourself through your most holy faith,
  • 00:25:36.210 --> 00:25:40.190
  • praying in tongues and praying in the Spirit."
  • 00:25:40.200 --> 00:25:44.130
  • And so, the answer to that question is very simply,
  • 00:25:44.140 --> 00:25:47.250
  • "Yes, speakin' in tongues is real."
  • 00:25:47.260 --> 00:25:51.140
  • It's a grace gift, and it'll make a mark in your life that
  • 00:25:51.150 --> 00:25:54.200
  • can never be erased.
