  • Gregory Dickow: God is not confining our prayer life and
  • 00:00:01.140 --> 00:00:05.190
  • limiting our prayer life based on our holiness.
  • 00:00:05.200 --> 00:00:08.210
  • He is un-limiting our prayer life based on his righteousness.
  • 00:00:08.220 --> 00:00:13.040
  • You don't have to have it all together in order
  • 00:00:13.050 --> 00:00:16.150
  • to pray with power.
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:18.220
  • All you need is to know that you're the righteousness of God
  • 00:00:18.230 --> 00:00:21.260
  • in Christ because the effectual, fervent prayer
  • 00:00:21.270 --> 00:00:24.240
  • of the righteous avails much.
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:28.220
  • [music]
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:43.200
  • [music]
  • 00:00:43.210 --> 00:00:56.260
  • Gregory: Hi, Gregory Dickow here, and welcome to
  • 00:00:56.270 --> 00:00:58.270
  • "The Power to Change Today."
  • 00:00:58.280 --> 00:01:00.210
  • And I believe today's teaching is going to change the way you
  • 00:01:00.220 --> 00:01:03.000
  • see God and the way you see yourself,
  • 00:01:03.010 --> 00:01:05.090
  • then it's going to change the way you pray.
  • 00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:08.080
  • You see, we're called by God as kings and priests before him.
  • 00:01:08.090 --> 00:01:12.060
  • We're not called to be dominated by life and its circumstances.
  • 00:01:12.070 --> 00:01:15.130
  • We're called to reign in life through the abundance of grace
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:18.190
  • and the gift of righteousness.
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:20.070
  • And when you understand that, you're going to pray with power
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:23.060
  • and see results.
  • 00:01:23.070 --> 00:01:24.220
  • God loves you too much to leave you the way you were.
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:27.170
  • He has given you the power to pray and see things happen.
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:32.220
  • Are you ready to see yourself the way you really are,
  • 00:01:32.230 --> 00:01:34.250
  • and pray with that kind of power?
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:36.190
  • It's time to use the power of prayer to break the bondage of
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:39.140
  • financial problems, family problems,
  • 00:01:39.150 --> 00:01:41.080
  • sickness, disease, depression, addictions,
  • 00:01:41.090 --> 00:01:43.230
  • and so much more.
  • 00:01:43.240 --> 00:01:45.140
  • Watch this and find out how.
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:46.240
  • [music]
  • 00:01:46.250 --> 00:01:48.120
  • Gregory: Now, here's the three things that Jesus settled
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:53.060
  • forever when he died and rose from the dead.
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:55.140
  • "To him that loved us."
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:56.240
  • Now, he already loved us, but he wants it settled in your mind.
  • 00:01:56.250 --> 00:02:00.150
  • "To him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his
  • 00:02:00.160 --> 00:02:05.280
  • own blood, and made us kings and priests to his God and Father,
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:10.290
  • to him be the glory forever and ever,
  • 00:02:13.290 --> 00:02:16.040
  • the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
  • 00:02:16.050 --> 00:02:17.250
  • Notice he did three things.
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.190
  • "To him that loved us," number one, he loved us.
  • 00:02:19.200 --> 00:02:21.200
  • Number two, he washed us in his own blood,
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:24.020
  • washed us from our sins in his own blood.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:26.230
  • And then number three, he made us kings and priests.
  • 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:31.020
  • Now, why are these three things so important?
  • 00:02:31.030 --> 00:02:33.200
  • Because these are the three things that must now
  • 00:02:33.210 --> 00:02:36.170
  • govern our lives.
  • 00:02:36.180 --> 00:02:38.030
  • These are the three things that must now be the foundation
  • 00:02:38.040 --> 00:02:41.120
  • for everything that we do, and everything that we believe,
  • 00:02:41.130 --> 00:02:45.020
  • that everything flows out of this three-strand cord.
  • 00:02:45.030 --> 00:02:50.120
  • He loved me, he washed me, and he made me something.
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:54.230
  • He loved me, he washed me, and he made me something.
  • 00:02:54.240 --> 00:02:58.070
  • These three things need to be forever fixed
  • 00:02:58.080 --> 00:03:01.150
  • in your mind and in your heart.
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:02.270
  • He loved you.
  • 00:03:02.280 --> 00:03:04.070
  • Now listen, there's a difference between God's love and man's
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:07.170
  • love, human love versus divine love.
  • 00:03:07.180 --> 00:03:10.250
  • Human love is the love of the lovely,
  • 00:03:10.260 --> 00:03:13.180
  • "I love you because you're lovely.
  • 00:03:13.190 --> 00:03:15.070
  • I love you because you're pretty.
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:16.170
  • I love you because you're attractive.
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:17.280
  • I love you because of how you make me feel."
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:19.290
  • That's human love. We love the most beautiful creatures.
  • 00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:23.030
  • We love the rich, we love the famous.
  • 00:03:23.040 --> 00:03:26.040
  • We love and we adore, in man's way,
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:29.060
  • human love, which has no capacity to love the weak.
  • 00:03:29.070 --> 00:03:33.260
  • Human love has no capacity to love the poor,
  • 00:03:33.270 --> 00:03:37.010
  • and the broken, and those that can do nothing for you.
  • 00:03:37.020 --> 00:03:40.010
  • And yet, God loves us.
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:43.020
  • Though we could do nothing for him,
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:45.020
  • he loves us anyway, that's divine love.
  • 00:03:45.030 --> 00:03:47.150
  • Human love is the love of the lovely,
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:49.030
  • "I love you because you--I love you
  • 00:03:49.040 --> 00:03:51.060
  • because of what you do for me.
  • 00:03:51.070 --> 00:03:52.230
  • I love you because of what you make me feel."
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:57.200
  • But divine love is this urge to make you better,
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:04:03.040
  • this urge to give to you unselfishly.
  • 00:04:03.050 --> 00:04:06.260
  • Everything I have, I'm going to give it to you,
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:09.120
  • that's divine love.
  • 00:04:09.130 --> 00:04:10.220
  • God doesn't--God doesn't love you because you're lovely.
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:14.000
  • God loves you because he is love.
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:18.080
  • God doesn't love you because you're perfect.
  • 00:04:18.090 --> 00:04:21.080
  • God loves you--God loves you because he's perfect.
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:25.030
  • God doesn't love you because of your performance.
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:27.230
  • God loves you because he calls you his friend,
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:32.030
  • and he chooses to give to you everything that he himself has,
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:38.100
  • and that he himself is.
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:39.270
  • And when you get ahold of that kind of love,
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:42.120
  • it gives you confidence. It gives you confidence.
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:46.000
  • He loved us, he washed us, and he made us kings and priests.
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:51.120
  • Now, what does that mean that he made us kings and priests?
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:53.250
  • It means that we are now royalty in God's kingdom,
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:58.100
  • and we're royalty in this earth.
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:05:00.110
  • Whenever you see a king or a queen or a prince or a princess,
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:03.200
  • in this world's definition of kings and queens,
  • 00:05:03.210 --> 00:05:06.220
  • you see they have royalty.
  • 00:05:06.230 --> 00:05:09.010
  • They walk in a certain way, they talk in a certain way,
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:11.230
  • they are--they possess wealth, and riches,
  • 00:05:11.240 --> 00:05:15.120
  • and lands, and territory, and power, and influence.
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:20.080
  • And God wants us to understand when we are born again,
  • 00:05:20.090 --> 00:05:23.230
  • it is settled forever that he loved us.
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:26.010
  • It is settled forever that he washed us,
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:28.250
  • so we don't have to be condemned another day in our life.
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:31.010
  • And it is settled forever that we--he has made
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:34.160
  • us kings and priests.
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:35.260
  • He has elevated us to a position of royalty.
  • 00:05:35.270 --> 00:05:39.190
  • We are not inferior people anymore.
  • 00:05:39.200 --> 00:05:42.010
  • We are not beaten up, we are not--we are
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:44.250
  • not the scum of the earth.
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.230
  • We are not the--we are not little people
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:48.270
  • trying to become big.
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:50.130
  • We are--he has made us something.
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:52.090
  • He has made us kings, he has made us priests.
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:55.000
  • We rule and reign in life.
  • 00:05:55.010 --> 00:05:57.100
  • We are no longer crowned by this world's life and by what this
  • 00:05:57.110 --> 00:06:01.290
  • world tries to tell us.
  • 00:06:02.000 --> 00:06:03.090
  • We are crowned by Jesus, we are crowned by God.
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:06.090
  • And now, we are kings and we are priests before him.
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:08.250
  • And by being a king, that means we rule in this life.
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:12.260
  • By being a priest, that means we can go directly
  • 00:06:12.270 --> 00:06:14.210
  • to God in this life.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:17.140
  • Kings rule, and priests have access to God.
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:22.260
  • That's what a king and a priest does.
  • 00:06:22.270 --> 00:06:25.100
  • A king rules and reigns, and a priest goes to God about
  • 00:06:25.110 --> 00:06:32.100
  • everything on behalf of God's people.
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:37.030
  • And he has made us kings and priests.
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:42.060
  • How did he do that?
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:43.160
  • Well, it says in 2 Corinthians 5:21 he became sin
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:49.290
  • so that we could be made the righteousness of God.
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:53.050
  • He became sin so that we could be made
  • 00:06:53.060 --> 00:06:55.250
  • the righteousness of God in him.
  • 00:06:55.260 --> 00:06:57.270
  • So, he became what we were, right?
  • 00:06:57.280 --> 00:07:00.170
  • We talked about this.
  • 00:07:00.180 --> 00:07:01.270
  • He became what we were so that we could become what he was
  • 00:07:01.280 --> 00:07:04.170
  • before he became what we were.
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:05.290
  • Say that out loud because I know that's a tongue-twister.
  • 00:07:06.000 --> 00:07:09.150
  • Say, "He became what we were so that we could become what he was
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:16.190
  • before he became what we were."
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:19.280
  • So, what did he become? He became sin.
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:22.220
  • That was what we were.
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:24.220
  • He became sin on the cross so that we could
  • 00:07:24.230 --> 00:07:28.080
  • become the righteousness of God.
  • 00:07:28.090 --> 00:07:31.020
  • That's what he was before he went to the cross.
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:33.010
  • He already was the righteousness of God.
  • 00:07:33.020 --> 00:07:35.270
  • He was sinless, the sinless Son of God, right?
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:38.210
  • So, he became what we were.
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:41.050
  • He became sin so that we could become what he was before he
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:44.290
  • became what we were.
  • 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:46.190
  • He was the righteousness of God, he became sin.
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:49.020
  • We were sinners, he took our sin,
  • 00:07:49.030 --> 00:07:51.130
  • became sin for us so that we could become
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:53.140
  • the righteousness of God.
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:55.210
  • That's why it says in Romans chapter 5,
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:59.030
  • verse 17, notice what he says in this verse.
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:03.240
  • He says, "Through the abundance of grace
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:05.200
  • and the gift of righteousness."
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:08.160
  • Well, he actually says, "For by if one man's offence,"
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:12.080
  • or by one man's sin, "death reigned through the one,"
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:15.250
  • through Adam, "much more."
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:18.050
  • Everybody say, "Much more."
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:20.110
  • How many know what--how many remember what it was like,
  • 00:08:20.120 --> 00:08:25.090
  • or maybe you feel it still, when sin reigned in your life?
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:31.060
  • When it was like even when you didn't want to do it,
  • 00:08:31.070 --> 00:08:34.040
  • you ended up doing it?
  • 00:08:34.050 --> 00:08:36.100
  • Even Paul the Apostle said, "What I don't want to do,
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:38.100
  • I end up doing. What I do, I end up not--what I want to do,
  • 00:08:38.110 --> 00:08:41.010
  • I end up not doing.
  • 00:08:41.020 --> 00:08:42.110
  • What I don't want to do, I end up doing."
  • 00:08:42.120 --> 00:08:43.280
  • Because there's this struggle until he gets his mind renewed
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:46.290
  • to knowing that he's the righteousness of God.
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:51.000
  • If by one man's sin death reigned,
  • 00:08:51.010 --> 00:08:57.140
  • through one, through Adam, much more those who receive two
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:09:02.120
  • things, those who receive the abundance of grace and the gift
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:09.110
  • of righteousness, will reign in life.
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:15.150
  • Not just in heaven, we're going to reign in this life.
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:19.060
  • One translation says we will reign as kings in this life
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:26.150
  • through the one Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:28.250
  • Why aren't we reigning then?
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:30.140
  • Why is--why does it seem like sickness comes
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:33.150
  • and it reigns over us?
  • 00:09:33.160 --> 00:09:35.150
  • Financial burdens come and they reign over us?
  • 00:09:35.160 --> 00:09:37.170
  • Worry and fear and anxiety, and the things we hear about going
  • 00:09:37.180 --> 00:09:40.140
  • on in the world, and they reign over us?
  • 00:09:40.150 --> 00:09:42.080
  • It's because we don't understand our righteousness
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:45.160
  • and the abundance of grace.
  • 00:09:45.170 --> 00:09:47.010
  • Through the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness,
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:49.100
  • these two things, we reign as kings in life.
  • 00:09:49.110 --> 00:09:54.260
  • That's why he--that's why it says he loved us,
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:57.120
  • he washed us, and then he made us kings and priests,
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:00.210
  • so that we can stand in the presence of God without guilt.
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:03.250
  • We can stand in the presence of devils,
  • 00:10:03.260 --> 00:10:05.260
  • and devils tremble.
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:07.060
  • When you walk into the room, demons tremble,
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:09.200
  • demons walk backwards, demons flee because you're there,
  • 00:10:09.210 --> 00:10:13.100
  • because you are marked by the righteousness of God in Christ
  • 00:10:13.110 --> 00:10:17.130
  • Jesus our Lord.
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:18.260
  • You are marked by his love.
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:20.190
  • You are marked by his grace.
  • 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:22.020
  • You are marked by his righteousness.
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:24.130
  • And therefore, you reign in life.
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:28.150
  • But if you don't receive these gifts, you won't reign.
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:31.180
  • And if you don't know that you have these gifts,
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:35.120
  • you won't reign in life.
  • 00:10:35.130 --> 00:10:36.230
  • But through the abundance of grace,
  • 00:10:36.240 --> 00:10:38.270
  • not--he doesn't just give us enough to get by,
  • 00:10:38.280 --> 00:10:41.240
  • he gives us an abundance.
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:44.020
  • And through the gift of righteousness. It's a gift.
  • 00:10:44.030 --> 00:10:46.290
  • It's not something you can earn, deserve,
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:48.170
  • work for, or deserve, or perform for.
  • 00:10:48.180 --> 00:10:54.080
  • It's a gift, therefore you reign.
  • 00:10:54.090 --> 00:10:57.100
  • Why is this so important?
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:58.200
  • Because we're about to pray in a moment.
  • 00:10:58.210 --> 00:11:00.250
  • And if you don't understand this,
  • 00:11:00.260 --> 00:11:03.130
  • your prayers will not avail much.
  • 00:11:03.140 --> 00:11:05.260
  • But if you understand this, your prayers will avail much.
  • 00:11:05.270 --> 00:11:08.240
  • Because it says in James chapter 5,
  • 00:11:08.250 --> 00:11:12.150
  • watch this, James chapter 5, verse 16,
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:14.210
  • he says--in the second part of the verse,
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:20.130
  • in James chapter 5, verse 16, it says,
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:24.210
  • "For the effectual, fervent prayer of the
  • 00:11:24.220 --> 00:11:29.140
  • righteous avails much."
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:33.240
  • So, the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man.
  • 00:11:33.250 --> 00:11:37.170
  • What kind of man? A righteous man avails much.
  • 00:11:37.180 --> 00:11:42.230
  • Because why? Because you do everything right?
  • 00:11:42.240 --> 00:11:45.200
  • No, because you are righteous.
  • 00:11:45.210 --> 00:11:47.100
  • And how did you become righteous?
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:49.220
  • He became sin so that we could become
  • 00:11:49.230 --> 00:11:52.240
  • the righteousness of God, right?
  • 00:11:52.250 --> 00:11:54.150
  • He was made sin so that we would be made
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:56.170
  • the righteousness of God.
  • 00:11:56.180 --> 00:11:57.270
  • I'm not saying to go out and live ungodly.
  • 00:11:57.280 --> 00:12:01.000
  • What I'm saying is if you think that you only qualify
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:06.070
  • for effective prayer because you have it all together,
  • 00:12:06.080 --> 00:12:09.220
  • then you're misunderstanding what righteousness is.
  • 00:12:09.230 --> 00:12:12.180
  • We qualify for answered prayer because we've received
  • 00:12:12.190 --> 00:12:16.000
  • the gift of righteousness.
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:18.130
  • Not because we do everything right,
  • 00:12:18.140 --> 00:12:20.190
  • but because we got the gift.
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.080
  • You got a gift. You've been given a gift.
  • 00:12:22.090 --> 00:12:25.080
  • Therefore, with that gift, you rule and reign.
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:27.060
  • With that gift, you have authority over the devil.
  • 00:12:27.070 --> 00:12:29.110
  • With that gift--oh man, there's a Scripture,
  • 00:12:29.120 --> 00:12:32.040
  • and I don't have time to dig into this,
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:33.180
  • but in Acts chapter 13, there's a Scripture that say the devil
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:36.290
  • is the enemy of all righteousness.
  • 00:12:37.000 --> 00:12:38.260
  • And the reason he's the enemy of all righteousness is because he
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:42.000
  • knows when you understand the gift of righteousness,
  • 00:12:42.010 --> 00:12:44.150
  • you will kick him right in--well,
  • 00:12:44.160 --> 00:12:47.180
  • you know where you're going to kick him.
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:49.220
  • Kick him wherever you want to kick him, it works.
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:52.260
  • But you're going to kick him out of your life.
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:55.060
  • You're going to kick him out of your family.
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:57.030
  • You're going to kick him out of your marriage.
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:58.160
  • You're going to kick him out of your body.
  • 00:12:58.170 --> 00:13:00.030
  • You're going to kick him out of your finances.
  • 00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:01.260
  • You're going to kick him out of your job.
  • 00:13:01.270 --> 00:13:03.190
  • You're going to kick him out of your existence because the Bible
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:07.220
  • says the righteous are as bold as a lion,
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:10.130
  • but the wicked flee from the righteous.
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:13.040
  • So, Satan will run from you when you know you're the
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:16.060
  • righteousness of God.
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:18.210
  • That means you are made right with God
  • 00:13:18.220 --> 00:13:20.180
  • through the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:13:20.190 --> 00:13:23.100
  • But notice it says, man, the effective,
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:25.070
  • fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
  • 00:13:25.080 --> 00:13:28.180
  • It doesn't say the effective, fervent prayer
  • 00:13:28.190 --> 00:13:30.290
  • of the holiest men avail.
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:33.220
  • Or the effective, fervent prayer of the clean people.
  • 00:13:33.230 --> 00:13:36.260
  • The effective, fervent prayer of the un-addicted.
  • 00:13:36.270 --> 00:13:39.030
  • You see, you might be dealing with an addiction and say,
  • 00:13:39.040 --> 00:13:42.280
  • "Man, if I can--oh, if I could just break this addiction,
  • 00:13:42.290 --> 00:13:45.160
  • I'll have power to pray."
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:48.050
  • But God says no, it's the opposite.
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:49.280
  • Remember, we have spiritual dyslexia, we got it backwards.
  • 00:13:49.290 --> 00:13:54.180
  • We think, "Oh, if I can--if I can overcome this addiction,
  • 00:13:54.190 --> 00:13:56.230
  • then I'll have power to pray."
  • 00:13:56.240 --> 00:13:58.070
  • No, he said if you understand you're the righteousness of God,
  • 00:13:58.080 --> 00:14:01.160
  • even when you're dealing with an addiction,
  • 00:14:01.170 --> 00:14:04.160
  • you will pray with power.
  • 00:14:04.170 --> 00:14:09.010
  • You say, "Well if--can I pray with power if I'm still addicted
  • 00:14:09.020 --> 00:14:11.260
  • to something?"
  • 00:14:11.270 --> 00:14:13.060
  • Yes, because you pray with power not because
  • 00:14:13.070 --> 00:14:15.280
  • you're free from all addictions.
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:17.100
  • You pray with power because you're the righteousness of God.
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:21.210
  • You say, "Yeah, but I'm so--I got all these issues."
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:24.230
  • Look at the next verse, verse 17,
  • 00:14:24.240 --> 00:14:26.190
  • "For Elijah was a man with a nature like ours,
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:34.230
  • and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain,"
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:37.230
  • and look at what it says.
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:39.030
  • "And it did not rain for 3 1/2 years."
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:42.140
  • How many would like to have that kind of power,
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:44.020
  • where you--where you pray, and for 3 1/2 years,
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:49.000
  • you got what you prayed for?
  • 00:14:49.010 --> 00:14:50.290
  • And then, by the way, it didn't rain again--the next verse says
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:53.080
  • it didn't rain again until he said so.
  • 00:14:53.090 --> 00:14:54.230
  • It says then he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain.
  • 00:14:54.240 --> 00:14:57.180
  • He prayed, and then heaven gave rain.
  • 00:14:57.190 --> 00:15:03.080
  • How many need heaven to give you something today?
  • 00:15:03.090 --> 00:15:05.130
  • Look, heaven's going to give you something when you pray
  • 00:15:05.140 --> 00:15:09.050
  • as the righteousness of God.
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:12.150
  • Heaven's going to give--heaven is going to give you the rain
  • 00:15:12.160 --> 00:15:15.050
  • that you need when you pray.
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:17.290
  • But the first time he prayed, he said it's not going to rain
  • 00:15:18.000 --> 00:15:22.250
  • for 3 1/2 years, and for 3 1/2 years it didn't rain.
  • 00:15:22.260 --> 00:15:24.270
  • But notice what it--how it describes Elijah.
  • 00:15:24.280 --> 00:15:27.140
  • Elijah, verse 16--or verse 17, "Was a man
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:30.040
  • with a nature like ours."
  • 00:15:30.050 --> 00:15:32.230
  • Now, there's three big boo-boos in Elijah's life.
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:40.140
  • If you will look at his life, there's three major mistakes he
  • 00:15:40.150 --> 00:15:43.180
  • made, or three big deficiencies in his life.
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:50.010
  • Number one, he ran from Jezebel.
  • 00:15:50.020 --> 00:15:53.120
  • Do you remember there was a time where Elijah
  • 00:15:53.130 --> 00:15:57.120
  • ran from Ahab's wife Jezebel?
  • 00:15:57.130 --> 00:15:59.040
  • So, he ran out of fear.
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:01.030
  • Has anybody run in your life because you've been afraid?
  • 00:16:01.040 --> 00:16:04.020
  • Has anybody ever been afraid?
  • 00:16:04.030 --> 00:16:05.170
  • Has anybody ever felt like, "Oh man,
  • 00:16:05.180 --> 00:16:07.230
  • I can't overcome this enemy," and you ran from it,
  • 00:16:07.240 --> 00:16:10.130
  • or you avoided it, or you just didn't address the issue?
  • 00:16:10.140 --> 00:16:13.240
  • Or you--I mean, I'm just saying he was a man
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:16.000
  • with a nature like ours, wasn't he?
  • 00:16:16.010 --> 00:16:18.230
  • So, he had fear, number one.
  • 00:16:18.240 --> 00:16:21.100
  • Number two, Elijah said to the Lord,
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:27.250
  • "I'm the only prophet left in all the earth,
  • 00:16:27.260 --> 00:16:31.280
  • in all of Israel."
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:33.080
  • And the Lord said, "I know you feel like that,
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:35.200
  • Elijah, but there are 7.000 more prophets in Israel."
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:39.220
  • In other words, sometimes we feel like we're all alone.
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:43.170
  • Anybody ever feel like that?
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:45.010
  • Elijah was a man with a nature like ours,
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:46.280
  • and yet he still prayed.
  • 00:16:46.290 --> 00:16:48.110
  • He was a man who was afraid at times, and yet he prayed
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.200
  • that it wouldn't rain, and the rain stopped.
  • 00:16:51.210 --> 00:16:53.120
  • He was a man who felt like he was all alone,
  • 00:16:53.130 --> 00:16:55.290
  • he felt like he was the only one.
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:58.050
  • "Nobody knows what I'm going through."
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:16:59.240
  • God says, "Yes, there are 6.999 others that know
  • 00:16:59.250 --> 00:17:02.160
  • what you're going through.
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:03.260
  • You're not the only prophet.
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:05.060
  • You're not the only one going through this.
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:06.160
  • You're not the only one struggling.
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:07.260
  • You're not the only one suffering.
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:09.060
  • You're not the only one dealing with this battle."
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:11.120
  • Don't ever feel--well, when you feel like you're the only one,
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:14.170
  • you need to remember, hey, it's okay to
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:17.050
  • feel like that sometimes.
  • 00:17:17.060 --> 00:17:18.150
  • Even Elijah felt like that, and he still prayed,
  • 00:17:18.160 --> 00:17:21.250
  • and it didn't rain for 3 1/2 years.
  • 00:17:21.260 --> 00:17:25.080
  • And then the third problem that Elijah had was he felt like--he
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:29.180
  • felt depressed.
  • 00:17:29.190 --> 00:17:30.280
  • The Bible says at one point, I think it's in 1 Kings chapter 18
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:34.110
  • or 19, he went under this juniper tree,
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:37.020
  • and he laid down under this tree, and said,
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:40.010
  • "O God, take my life. I am not--my life
  • 00:17:40.020 --> 00:17:42.230
  • isn't worth living anymore."
  • 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:44.100
  • He was so depressed, he was ready to die.
  • 00:17:44.110 --> 00:17:48.220
  • Now, I know that most of us or many of us have never
  • 00:17:48.230 --> 00:17:51.100
  • gotten so depressed that we're ready to die,
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:54.030
  • but some of us have gotten close.
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:57.120
  • And if we'll just be willing to be raw and honest and admit it,
  • 00:17:57.130 --> 00:18:01.190
  • I think we've all had that thought once
  • 00:18:01.200 --> 00:18:04.080
  • or twice in our lives.
  • 00:18:04.090 --> 00:18:05.180
  • Can I get a--can I get a witness here? It's okay.
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:13.190
  • Elijah was depressed, Elijah was afraid,
  • 00:18:13.200 --> 00:18:18.230
  • and Elijah felt sorry for himself,
  • 00:18:18.240 --> 00:18:22.280
  • like he was all alone and nobody understood
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:25.210
  • what he was going through.
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:28.160
  • He was a man with a nature like ours,
  • 00:18:28.170 --> 00:18:31.090
  • and he still prayed that it wouldn't rain,
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:36.220
  • and it didn't rain for 3 1/2 years.
  • 00:18:36.230 --> 00:18:39.240
  • Did he have to get rid of all the fear before he prayed?
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:44.230
  • Did he have to get rid of all the depression before he prayed?
  • 00:18:44.240 --> 00:18:49.120
  • Did he have to get rid of all the feeling sorry for himself
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:52.290
  • before he prayed?
  • 00:18:53.000 --> 00:18:54.090
  • No, because God is trying to say to us you don't have to have it
  • 00:18:54.100 --> 00:18:57.210
  • all together in order to pray with power.
  • 00:18:57.220 --> 00:19:01.210
  • All you need is to know that you're the righteousness of God
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:04.270
  • in Christ because the effectual, fervent prayer
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:07.280
  • of the righteous avails much.
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:13.170
  • This is how powerful you are.
  • 00:19:13.180 --> 00:19:17.060
  • That's why it's so important we know he loved us,
  • 00:19:17.070 --> 00:19:19.180
  • he washed us, and he made us kings and priests.
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:23.040
  • That's why we can pray with power.
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:25.210
  • Should we stay depressed? No.
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:27.230
  • Should we stay feeling sorry for ourselves? No.
  • 00:19:27.240 --> 00:19:30.090
  • Should we stay afraid and keep running? No.
  • 00:19:30.100 --> 00:19:33.280
  • But God is not confining our prayer life and limiting our
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:39.260
  • prayer life based on our holiness.
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:42.180
  • He is un-limiting our prayer life based on his righteousness.
  • 00:19:42.190 --> 00:19:48.030
  • Because you are the righteousness of God in Christ,
  • 00:19:48.040 --> 00:19:54.270
  • you can pray like this, and stuff's going to happen,
  • 00:19:54.280 --> 00:19:58.230
  • and heaven's going to give rain.
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:20:00.180
  • And Elijah prayed again, and the heavens gave rain.
  • 00:20:00.190 --> 00:20:04.260
  • And we're going to pray today, and the heavens are going to
  • 00:20:04.270 --> 00:20:07.160
  • save your family, and the heavens are going to heal your
  • 00:20:07.170 --> 00:20:10.070
  • body, and the heavens are going to release your finances,
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:13.080
  • and the heavens are going to break that addiction,
  • 00:20:13.090 --> 00:20:15.190
  • and the heavens are going to restore that marriage,
  • 00:20:15.200 --> 00:20:18.030
  • and the heavens are going to bring back your children,
  • 00:20:18.040 --> 00:20:20.190
  • and the heavens are going to bring back what you've lost,
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:23.050
  • and the heavens are going to bring back whatever has been
  • 00:20:23.060 --> 00:20:26.030
  • missing or broken or stolen from your life.
  • 00:20:26.040 --> 00:20:29.100
  • The heaven is going to give it back when you pray--look at back
  • 00:20:29.110 --> 00:20:32.100
  • what he says in James 5, verse 18, "And he prayed again."
  • 00:20:32.110 --> 00:20:36.110
  • And he prayed again.
  • 00:20:36.120 --> 00:20:37.270
  • James chapter 5 verse 18,
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:39.240
  • "And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain."
  • 00:20:39.250 --> 00:20:47.020
  • Heaven gives when the righteous pray.
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:53.240
  • Heaven gives when the righteous pray.
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:58.170
  • Heaven gives when the righteous pray.
  • 00:20:58.180 --> 00:21:01.280
  • Say that, "Heaven gives when the righteous pray."
  • 00:21:01.290 --> 00:21:06.260
  • Gregory: Well, aren't you glad our prayer life isn't
  • 00:21:09.190 --> 00:21:11.000
  • limited by our holiness?
  • 00:21:11.010 --> 00:21:13.000
  • It's actually unlimited because of his righteousness.
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:16.080
  • Remember, the three things that Jesus settled forever when he
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:19.120
  • died on the cross: he loved us, he washed us,
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:22.100
  • and he made us kings and priests.
  • 00:21:22.110 --> 00:21:24.170
  • You see, when you understand you're a king and a priest
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:26.150
  • before God, and that you're his righteousness,
  • 00:21:26.160 --> 00:21:28.250
  • your prayers are going to rip the roof off
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:31.030
  • of your limitations.
  • 00:21:31.040 --> 00:21:32.130
  • James 5:16 says, "The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous
  • 00:21:32.140 --> 00:21:35.210
  • man avails much."
  • 00:21:35.220 --> 00:21:37.020
  • And the reason we're not availing much in prayer is
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:39.160
  • because we don't understand this gift of righteousness,
  • 00:21:39.170 --> 00:21:41.250
  • and the authority that we have as a king and a priest before
  • 00:21:41.260 --> 00:21:44.210
  • him, and that's why God had you tune into this program to know
  • 00:21:44.220 --> 00:21:48.010
  • who you are in Christ, and to pray with boldness and power.
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:52.110
  • Because listen, the gift of righteousness,
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:54.090
  • we're not righteous because of something we do.
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:57.010
  • We're righteous because of what Jesus did for us.
  • 00:21:57.020 --> 00:21:59.160
  • And when you understand that, you're going to go from begging
  • 00:21:59.170 --> 00:22:02.250
  • from God for something, to decreeing
  • 00:22:02.260 --> 00:22:05.100
  • a thing and it shall be.
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:07.020
  • Remember Elijah?
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:08.140
  • He prayed with power, even though he dealt with depression
  • 00:22:08.150 --> 00:22:11.200
  • like we do, and isolation and fear like we do.
  • 00:22:11.210 --> 00:22:14.150
  • He stopped the rain for three and a half years because he knew
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:17.070
  • the authority that he had.
  • 00:22:17.080 --> 00:22:18.260
  • He wasn't perfect, he struggled like you and me,
  • 00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:20.210
  • but he understood his authority.
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:22.190
  • And just like Elijah, you can walk in that kind of authority
  • 00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:26.090
  • and prayer through the gift of righteousness.
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:29.000
  • Now, my announcer's going to tell you more about how you can
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:31.170
