  • FIRST I WILL TITHE AND THEN
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:29.220
  • DO I NEED TO TITHE ON THE AFTER TAX
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:31.090
  • OR BEFORE, 'CAUSE I'M GETTING A LUMP SUM?
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:32.250
  • I'M NOT GETTING A...
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:36.070
  • LIKE Y'ALL HAD THE WHOLE CONVERSATION.
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:40.100
  • "MIND GAMES".
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:41.220
  • AND GOD'S LIKE, IF YOU TRUST ME I CAN GIVE YOU EVERYTHING
  • 00:02:41.250 --> 00:02:44.110
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE IN THIS LIFE
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:45.260
  • AND YOU WON'T BE RUNNING AROUND HOPING SOMEBODY GIVES YOU
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:48.020
  • SOMETHING BECAUSE ALL OF IT IT'S IN MY HANDS ANYWAY.
  • 00:02:48.050 --> 00:02:51.050
  • [CONGREGATION APPLAUSE]
  • 00:02:51.080 --> 00:02:55.160
  • [MUMBLES] I AM STILL KEEPING MY TICKETS THOUGH.
  • 00:02:55.190 --> 00:02:57.020
  • I'M THERE IN MY PURSE.
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:02:58.060
  • SO I'M JUST...
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:03:04.190
  • LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION.
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:05.280
  • IF YOU'VE BEEN FASTING 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS,
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:10.180
  • WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU GON BE TEMPTED BY?
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:13.280
  • -[CONGREGATION] FOOD.
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:14.230
  • - SAY IT AGAIN?
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:15.180
  • -[CONGREGATION] FOOD.
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:16.130
  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:17.080
  • SO THE ENEMY TEMPTED JESUS
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:20.180
  • WITH A NATURAL NEED FROM AN UNGODLY SOURCE.
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:28.210
  • THIS IS WHAT THE ENEMY DOES TO US.
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:30.210
  • THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT WE NEED AS HUMAN BEINGS,
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:33.090
  • BUT OFTENTIMES THE ENEMY WILL PRESENT WHAT IS A NATURAL NEED
  • 00:03:33.120 --> 00:03:38.080
  • AT AN UNGODLY TIME, FROM AN UNGODLY SOURCE,
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:41.140
  • AND IT IS THROUGH THE MIND OF CHRIST THAT YOU CAN DISCERN,
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:44.270
  • I WANT THAT, BUT I DON'T WANT IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:03:45.000 --> 00:03:54.130
  • I'M TRYING TO PUSH US INTO THIS PLACE
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:58.170
  • CALLED SPIRITUAL MATURITY.
  • 00:03:58.200 --> 00:03:59.280
  • NOTICE, THAT WHAT JESUS TEMPTED,
  • 00:04:00.030 --> 00:04:03.010
  • WHAT SATAN TEMPTED JESUS WITH,
  • 00:04:03.040 --> 00:04:04.210
  • IS THE SAME THING SATAN TEMPTED ADAM AND EVE WITH, FOOD.
  • 00:04:04.240 --> 00:04:09.120
  • -[WOMAN] THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:04:09.150 --> 00:04:11.030
  • - CHECK IT OUT, GENESIS THREE, YOU SHOULD GO READ IT.
  • 00:04:11.060 --> 00:04:13.210
  • -[WOMAN] THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:14.180
  • - EVERYTHING WAS GOOD IN THE GARDEN.
  • 00:04:14.210 --> 00:04:15.180
  • EVERYTHING WAS WELL.
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:16.210
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN SATAN WAS LIKE HEY,
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:19.220
  • DID GOD SAY NOT TO EAT FROM THAT TREE?
  • 00:04:19.250 --> 00:04:21.290
  • YOU KNOW YOU WANT SOME ON THAT TREE.
  • 00:04:22.020 --> 00:04:24.010
  • YOU KNOW GOOD AND WELL, PAP'S TRIPPING.
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:30.140
  • AFTER HE SOLD THE THOUGHT, WATCH WHAT EVE,
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:33.140
  • WATCH WHAT IT SAYS EVE SAID.
  • 00:04:33.170 --> 00:04:34.220
  • IT SAYS EVE SAW THAT IT WAS GOOD FOR FOOD
  • 00:04:34.250 --> 00:04:39.030
  • AND PLEASING TO THE EYE.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:41.070
  • NOW BEFORE THE ENEMY BROUGHT IT UP, SHE WAS FINE.
  • 00:04:41.100 --> 00:04:43.220
  • BUT THEN HE SOLD THE THOUGHT.
  • 00:04:43.250 --> 00:04:45.070
  • SHE'S LIKE, IT DOES LOOK NICE!
  • 00:04:45.100 --> 00:04:47.160
  • I AM HUNGRY.
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:49.160
  • OH MY GOODNESS!
  • 00:04:49.190 --> 00:04:51.260
  • HOW COME GOD WON'T LET ME EAR FROM THIS TREE?
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:57.180
  • AND ADAM JUST SITTING THERE GOOFY NOT,
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:59.150
  • HE SHOULD HAVE STOPPED THE CONVERSATION,
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:01.250
  • BUT HE JUST [MUMBLES].
  • 00:05:01.280 --> 00:05:07.260
  • SO SHE EATS THE FRUIT AND GIVE SOME TO HIM, OKAY [MUMBLES].
  • 00:05:07.290 --> 00:05:18.030
  • THE DEVIL WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU GREAT VISUALS.
  • 00:05:18.060 --> 00:05:21.090
  • HE'LL NEVER SHOW YOU WHAT'S INVISIBLE.
  • 00:05:21.120 --> 00:05:23.200
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:26.000
  • - WHAT EVE SAW WAS GOOD FOR FOOD AND PLEASING,
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:29.180
  • BUT WHAT SHE DIDN'T SEE
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:30.260
  • IS THAT GOING AFTER WHAT SHE COULD TOUCH IN THE TEMPORAL
  • 00:05:30.290 --> 00:05:34.240
  • AND THE CARNAL WAS AGAINST SOMETHING INVISIBLE
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:37.270
  • WHICH WAS A SPIRITUAL DECLARATION
  • 00:05:38.000 --> 00:05:40.020
  • FROM THE HEAVENLY FATHER WHO SAID,
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:41.160
  • I DON'T WANT YOU TO TOUCH IT,
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:42.230
  • BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT'S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT.
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:46.010
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:47.010
  • - BUT THE ENEMY WILL MESS WITH YOUR MIND.
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:49.220
  • HE'LL ALWAYS MAKE YOU WANT THE THING YOU CAN'T HAVE.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:56.210
  • KEEP GOING.
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:57.250
  • -[CONGREGATION] AMEN.
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:06:02.050
  • - THE ENEMY SELLS A CONTRARY AND COMPETING THOUGHT.
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:07.010
  • HE WANTS YOU TO THINK A THOUGHT OPPOSITE OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:06:07.040 --> 00:06:10.020
  • BECAUSE IF HE CAN GET YOU TO START THINKING ABOUT THAT,
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:13.030
  • THEN HE CAN DRAW YOU AWAY FROM THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:06:13.060 --> 00:06:17.080
  • SO CHECK THIS OUT.
  • 00:06:17.110 --> 00:06:20.030
  • THE NEXT THING THAT HAPPENS, JESUS TEMPTED BY FOOD.
  • 00:06:20.060 --> 00:06:24.030
  • ADAM, TEMPTED BUY FOOD.
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.250
  • WHO ELSE GOT TEMPTED BY FOOD?
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:27.280
  • GOTTA WRITE THIS DOWN, NUMBERS CHAPTER 11.
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:30.180
  • NUMBERS CHAPTER 11, YOU'LL FIND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
  • 00:06:30.210 --> 00:06:33.210
  • FRESH OUT OF EGYPT, THEY'VE ALREADY CROSSED THE RED SEA.
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:38.070
  • IF ANYBODY'S GONNA LOVE GOD AND SERVE GOD,
  • 00:06:38.100 --> 00:06:40.190
  • IT SHOULD BE PEOPLE WHO JUST WATCH MULTIPLE PLAGUES
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:43.030
  • GET THEM DELIVERED AFTER 430 YEARS OF BONDAGE.
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:48.190
  • THEY GET ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RED SEA,
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:51.040
  • THEY START COMPLAINING.
  • 00:06:51.070 --> 00:06:54.110
  • I SURE DO MISS THOSE LEEKS, AND THOSE ONIONS,
  • 00:06:54.140 --> 00:06:57.260
  • AND THAT GOOD OLD MEAT THAT THEY HAD IN EGYPT.
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:07:01.100
  • AND THEY START HAVING THIS CONVERSATION.
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:03.170
  • ALL WE GOT IS THIS MANNA, READ NUMBERS 11.
  • 00:07:03.200 --> 00:07:06.040
  • ALL WE GOT IS MANNA.
  • 00:07:06.070 --> 00:07:07.210
  • MANNA, THE BIBLE SAYS LITERALLY IT'S ANGELS FOOD.
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:12.060
  • -[WOMAN] THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:07:12.090 --> 00:07:13.100
  • - SO NOW YOU'RE DELIVERED, SET FREE,
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:17.260
  • BUT YOUR MIND IS STILL IN EGYPT.
  • 00:07:17.290 --> 00:07:22.120
  • NOW GOD HAS SUPERNATURALLY FREED MY BODY,
  • 00:07:22.150 --> 00:07:25.100
  • BUT BECAUSE I HAVE NOT BROUGHT MY THOUGHTS INTO CAPTIVITY,
  • 00:07:25.130 --> 00:07:28.060
  • MY MIND IS STILL IN EGYPT.
  • 00:07:28.090 --> 00:07:31.170
  • THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO GET SAVED
  • 00:07:31.200 --> 00:07:34.110
  • BUT THEY STOP RIGHT THERE AND THINK JUST BECAUSE I STOOD UP
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:37.290
  • AND I CONFESS, THAT'S ALL THERE IS.
  • 00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:39.260
  • NO, THAT SALVATION, THAT'S A FREE GIFT.
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:42.030
  • YOU GOT ETERNAL LIFE, BUT THERE'S MORE.
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:44.010
  • YOU CAN LIVE A FULFILLED LIFE,
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:45.220
  • AND AN OVERCOMING LIFE IN THE EARTH.
  • 00:07:45.250 --> 00:07:47.160
  • IF YOU ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME ON THE INSIDE OF YOU,
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:51.090
  • HE BEGINS TO CHANGE YOU FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
  • 00:07:51.120 --> 00:07:54.110
  • IT'S ROMANS 12, AND TWO,
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:56.000
  • DON'T BE CONFORMED TO THE WAYS OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:58.040
  • BUT BE YE TRANSFORMED.
  • 00:07:58.070 --> 00:08:01.030
  • SOMEBODY SAY TRANSFORMED.
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:02.240
  • -[CONGREGATION] TRANSFORMED.
  • 00:08:02.270 --> 00:08:04.090
  • - LET ME HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT TRANSFORMED.
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:06.180
  • IT LITERALLY MEANS CHANGE INTO ANOTHER FORM
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:09.020
  • BY THE RENEWING, A RENEWAL, RENOVATION,
  • 00:08:09.050 --> 00:08:12.020
  • OR COMPLETE CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:14.210
  • JESUS WANTS TO UPGRADE YOUR THINKING.
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:16.280
  • YOU GOT OLD SOFTWARE, AND IT'S TIME FOR YOU
  • 00:08:17.010 --> 00:08:19.140
  • TO COME IN FOR A NEW INSTALL.
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:21.290
  • IT'S AN OVERNIGHT INSTALL.
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.150
  • HE'LL PUT YOU TO SLEEP LIKE HE DID ADAM.
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:25.150
  • AND HE UPGRADED ADAM AFTER ONE SLEEP.
  • 00:08:25.180 --> 00:08:27.210
  • GOD WANTS TO INSTALL SOME NEW SOFTWARE ON YOUR MAIN FRAME.
  • 00:08:27.240 --> 00:08:31.220
  • HE WANTS TO INSTALL SOME NEW THINKING.
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:33.270
  • HE WANTS TO INSTALL A NEW HEART.
  • 00:08:34.000 --> 00:08:35.210
  • HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU SOME POWER OVER YOUR FLESH
  • 00:08:35.240 --> 00:08:38.120
  • SO YOU STOP COMING TO THE ALTAR EVERY WEEK
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:40.200
  • FOR THE SAME THING 20 YEARS STRAIGHT.
  • 00:08:40.230 --> 00:08:49.070
  • NOW, AM I SAYING THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:50.270
  • WITH COMING TO THE ALTAR
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:52.030
  • FOR THE SAME THING 20 YEARS STRAIGHT?
  • 00:08:52.060 --> 00:08:53.160
  • NO, I'M NOT.
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:54.150
  • IF YOU HAVE TO, COME EVERY SINGLE TIME.
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.040
  • BUT MY POINT IS, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WE CAN OVERCOME
  • 00:08:56.070 --> 00:08:59.010
  • BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY.
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:01.250
  • SO AT SOME POINT, SOME OF THE STUFF
  • 00:09:01.280 --> 00:09:03.200
  • THAT I WAS STRUGGLING WITH DOESN'T NEED TO BE THE THING
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:06.220
  • I'M STILL STRUGGLING WITH.
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:08.230
  • -[CONGREGATION] AMEN.
  • 00:09:08.260 --> 00:09:09.240
  • - IT'S CALLED I'VE GROWN UP, I'VE MATURED.
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:12.160
  • SEE, MY SON RIGHT NOW HE IS STILL BEING POTTY TRAINED.
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:15.260
  • HE HAD SOME CHALLENGES IN HIS EARLY DEVELOPMENT
  • 00:09:15.290 --> 00:09:18.240
  • BASED ON SOME MEDICAL THINGS,
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:20.090
  • SO WE'RE STILL WALKING WITH HIM.
  • 00:09:20.120 --> 00:09:22.150
  • BUT ME, I DIDN'T HAVE THOSE ISSUES AND I'M 42.
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:25.250
  • NOW, IF I'M STILL IN DIAPERS FROM A BABY,
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:28.210
  • AND I'M 42, WE GOT A LOT OF PROBLEMS IN MY HOUSE.
  • 00:09:28.240 --> 00:09:34.080
  • AND MY WIFE MUST HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF PATIENCE.
  • 00:09:34.110 --> 00:09:38.200
  • MY POINT IS, AT SOME POINT WE'VE GOT TO GROW.
  • 00:09:38.230 --> 00:09:41.190
  • WE'VE GOT TO MATURE.
  • 00:09:41.220 --> 00:09:42.260
  • AND WE'VE GOT TO BELIEVE
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.020
  • THAT THIS WORD IS NOT FOR SOMEBODY ELSE, IT'S FOR US.
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:47.130
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:49.270
  • - SOMEBODY SAY MIND GAMES.
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:51.150
  • -[CONGREGATION] MIND GAMES.
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:53.140
  • - SO SATAN LOVE TO PLAY WITH STUFF.
  • 00:09:53.170 --> 00:09:56.120
  • SAME THING, HE TEMPTED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WITH FOOD.
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:09:59.250
  • THEY SAID, "WE WISH WE HAD THAT FOOD IN EGYPT."
  • 00:09:59.280 --> 00:10:03.190
  • I WISH WE HAD SOME QUAIL.
  • 00:10:03.220 --> 00:10:05.090
  • BIBLE SAYS GOD SENT QUAIL, SENT IT.
  • 00:10:05.120 --> 00:10:09.040
  • AND WHILE THEY WERE EATING IT, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:10.200
  • WHILE IT WAS BETWEEN THEIR TEETH, NUMBERS 11:34,
  • 00:10:10.230 --> 00:10:13.220
  • HE SENT A PLAGUE BECAUSE THEY GAVE,
  • 00:10:13.250 --> 00:10:16.090
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THEY YIELDED TO THEIR CRAVINGS.
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:21.100
  • DON'T ALLOW YOUR FLESH
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:23.190
  • TO CAUSE GOD TO HAVE TO DISCIPLINE YOU.
  • 00:10:23.220 --> 00:10:26.010
  • IT'S 2016, YOU AND I HAVE BEEN GIVEN GRACE UPON GRACE,
  • 00:10:26.040 --> 00:10:29.280
  • LOVE UPON LOVE, FORGIVENESS UPON FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:10:30.010 --> 00:10:32.220
  • BUT THIS YEAR LET'S COVENANT IN OURSELVES TO SAY,
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:35.080
  • I'M GONNA GET AROUND SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE GONNA PUSH ME
  • 00:10:35.110 --> 00:10:37.150
  • INTO A MORE MATURE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:10:37.180 --> 00:10:41.010
  • I DON'T WANNA KEEP LIVING HALF THE WORD.
  • 00:10:41.040 --> 00:10:43.040
  • I WANNA LIVE THIS THING ALL THE WAY OUT.
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:45.020
  • CAN I GET MAYBE SIX AMENS.
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:47.080
  • -[CONGREGATION] AMEN.
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:51.110
  • - I LOVE THAT, THE ENEMY WILL ALWAYS TRY YOU.
  • 00:10:51.140 --> 00:10:57.120
  • WHEN YOU GON GET TEMPTED,
  • 00:10:57.150 --> 00:10:58.160
  • HE'S GOT TO TEMPT YOU WITH SOMETHING YOU LIKE.
  • 00:10:58.190 --> 00:11:01.260
  • SO HE'LL CHECK AND SEE.
  • 00:11:01.290 --> 00:11:04.120
  • AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, HE'LL HE'LL GO TO SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:11:04.150 --> 00:11:08.060

  • 'CAUSE IF HE CAN GET YOUR MIND, HE CAN GET YOUR AFFECTION.
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:16.040
  • BECAUSE COLOSSIANS THREE SAYS, SET YOUR MIND ON,
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:18.150
  • BUT THE WORD MIND RIGHT THERE IS A GREEK WORD
  • 00:22:18.180 --> 00:22:21.010

  • I'M PLAYING, Y'ALL COULD GO IF YOU HAVE TO.
  • 00:22:44.260 --> 00:22:47.050
  • FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR THIS MOMENT.
  • 00:22:47.080 --> 00:22:49.100
  • AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORD.
  • 00:22:49.130 --> 00:22:51.070
  • AND I ASK THAT YOU WILL GIVE US VISION
  • 00:22:51.100 --> 00:22:54.230
  • FOR THAT WHICH COMES FROM YOU,
  • 00:22:54.260 --> 00:22:56.160
  • AND THAT WHICH IS GOOD FOR US, AND GIVE US VISION
  • 00:22:56.190 --> 00:23:00.090
  • TO DISCERN BETWEEN WHAT IS YOU AND WHAT IS NOT YOU.
  • 00:23:00.120 --> 00:23:04.260
  • AND GOD SOMETIMES THE THING WE DESIRE COMES TO US
  • 00:23:04.290 --> 00:23:08.160
  • AND PREMATURELY WE GO AFTER IT BECAUSE IT SATISFIES
  • 00:23:08.190 --> 00:23:11.270
  • A NATURAL NEED, BUT THERE ARE SUPERNATURAL CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:23:12.000 --> 00:23:15.210
  • SO GIVE US A HEART TO TRUST YOU GOD.
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:19.030
  • AND LET US BYPASS THE TEMPTATION OF THE ENEMY.
  • 00:23:19.060 --> 00:23:22.120
  • AND LIKE JESUS DECLARED, IT IS WRITTEN,
  • 00:23:22.150 --> 00:23:24.250
  • BECAUSE THE ENEMY WANTS OUR MIND.
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:26.110
  • AND BECAUSE JESUS FASTED 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS
  • 00:23:26.140 --> 00:23:30.050
  • SATAN WAS HOPING THAT MY SAVIOR WOULD SOMEHOW
  • 00:23:30.080 --> 00:23:34.040
  • FORGET WHO HE WAS FOR A MOMENT
  • 00:23:34.070 --> 00:23:36.200
  • AND TAKE WHAT WAS IN SATAN'S HAND,
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:38.170
  • AS OPPOSED TO GOING AFTER WHAT WAS IN HIS FATHER'S HEART.
  • 00:23:38.200 --> 00:23:42.000
  • AND SO I THANK YOU THAT JESUS GAVE US A BLUEPRINT
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:45.280
  • ON HOW TO WIN THE BATTLE OF THE MIND.
  • 00:23:46.010 --> 00:23:48.150

  • YOU'LL EVER ENCOUNTER IN THIS LIFE?

  • IT'S KNOWING WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:24:00.200 --> 00:24:04.090
  • ONE OF THE ENEMY'S COMMON TRICKS IS TO MAKE YOU THINK
  • 00:24:04.120 --> 00:24:06.220
  • GOD IS NOT WHO HE SAYS HE IS,
  • 00:24:06.250 --> 00:24:09.130
