  • life, and life more abundantly.So, why is there such a
  • 00:00:56.315 --> 00:00:59.852
  • disconnect between this biblicalpromise, and how most Christians
  • 00:00:59.885 --> 00:01:03.288
  • live today? Why have so manybelievers become spiritually
  • 00:01:03.322 --> 00:01:07.059
  • weak, and ineffective at sharingJesus' message of love? THE
  • 00:01:07.092 --> 00:01:11.530
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY LIFE is theanswer. It's being led by Holy
  • 00:01:11.563 --> 00:01:15.734
  • Spirit, but in a contemporaryway. It's being Jesus and
  • 00:01:15.767 --> 00:01:19.638
  • demonstrating His love in wayspeople can understand and
  • 00:01:19.671 --> 00:01:23.142

  • compromises the truth, and itnever makes others feel
  • 00:01:27.513 --> 00:01:30.582

  • - And now, from Winnipeg,Canada, pastor Leon Fontaine.
  • 00:01:53.805 --> 00:01:57.576
  • -LEON: One of my earliestmemories that is burn into my
  • 00:01:59.411 --> 00:02:04.183
  • head is in Grade-one. When in alittle town called Weldon,
  • 00:02:04.216 --> 00:02:11.123
  • Saskatchewan where we spent anumber of years as to my father
  • 00:02:11.156 --> 00:02:14.459
  • pastored there. I attendedgrades one through to nine
  • 00:02:14.493 --> 00:02:19.565
  • there. But in Grade-one Iremember having a stomachache so
  • 00:02:19.598 --> 00:02:22.901
  • bad that I asked to go run homeor go home. It was a different
  • 00:02:22.935 --> 00:02:27.739
  • time in those days in a littlevillage. So the teacher released
  • 00:02:27.773 --> 00:02:32.177
  • me, and I began to walk home.And on the way home my stomach
  • 00:02:32.211 --> 00:02:35.347
  • got so crampy and sore. Iliterally lay down in the ditch
  • 00:02:35.380 --> 00:02:39.318
  • because I was walking on thisroad. There wasn't sidewalks
  • 00:02:39.351 --> 00:02:42.187
  • there. And I curled into a ballholding my tummy and then I
  • 00:02:42.221 --> 00:02:47.159
  • remember something that I hadbeen taught every weekend in
  • 00:02:47.192 --> 00:02:51.663
  • Sunday school and by my parents.Which was that I could use the
  • 00:02:51.697 --> 00:02:58.170
  • name of Jesus whenevercircumstances in my life were
  • 00:02:58.203 --> 00:03:03.575
  • going against what Jesus hadpromised me. And I knew even in
  • 00:03:03.609 --> 00:03:07.579
  • Grade-one that healing was forme. And that at the name of
  • 00:03:07.613 --> 00:03:12.818
  • Jesus, I could use it. Thatthere was something about it. I
  • 00:03:12.851 --> 00:03:17.222
  • didn't understand like I dotoday, but I knew the name of
  • 00:03:17.256 --> 00:03:20.158
  • Jesus brought healing. And so Iremember just literally praying.
  • 00:03:20.192 --> 00:03:24.029
  • I don't remember the prayer. Ijust remember using the name of
  • 00:03:24.062 --> 00:03:29.034
  • Jesus. And all of a sudden inthat little ditch, in that
  • 00:03:29.067 --> 00:03:34.039
  • little village. I sensed thisincredible feeling that I've
  • 00:03:34.072 --> 00:03:37.643
  • never forgotten here I am 50years later, and I can't tell
  • 00:03:37.676 --> 00:03:41.580
  • you about any other tummy achethat I had, and that I had
  • 00:03:41.613 --> 00:03:45.083
  • others. But I remember this onebecause of meeting with God.
  • 00:03:45.117 --> 00:03:49.755
  • That's how I felt that day, isall of a sudden like warm oil
  • 00:03:49.788 --> 00:03:53.258
  • started at the top of my headand just came all down my body
  • 00:03:53.292 --> 00:03:56.795
  • and the pain totally left. I gotup, went back to school. My
  • 00:03:56.828 --> 00:04:01.500
  • teacher wanted to know what Iwas doing back here, and I said
  • 00:04:01.533 --> 00:04:04.269
  • that my tummy ache left on theway home. But never despise
  • 00:04:04.303 --> 00:04:10.575
  • Sunday schools and Christiansschools because I've got news
  • 00:04:10.609 --> 00:04:14.646
  • for you. The memories that arelogged into my heart and mind
  • 00:04:14.680 --> 00:04:19.251
  • are the ones where I learned anddeveloped in the power and the
  • 00:04:19.284 --> 00:04:24.122
  • understanding of Jesus. I knewat the young age that He loved
  • 00:04:24.156 --> 00:04:27.959
  • me, and that He had given us Hisname, and that in His name
  • 00:04:27.993 --> 00:04:32.297
  • everything bows to the name ofJesus. And today I want to talk
  • 00:04:32.331 --> 00:04:37.736
  • about this because a lot ofChristians actually don't
  • 00:04:37.769 --> 00:04:42.507
  • understand how this works. Muchof the body of Christ thinks
  • 00:04:42.541 --> 00:04:47.045
  • that the word "Jesus", the wayit's put together I guess with
  • 00:04:47.079 --> 00:04:50.582
  • its consonants and vowels. Thatit's kind of a magic
  • 00:04:50.615 --> 00:04:54.853
  • incantation, which is not. Thename of Jesus is something we
  • 00:04:54.886 --> 00:05:00.092
  • have to understand why is itpowerful, to whom is it
  • 00:05:00.125 --> 00:05:04.763
  • powerful, and how do you developthe power that is in the name of
  • 00:05:04.796 --> 00:05:12.137
  • Jesus? Listen to this in thebook of John. Jesus is speaking
  • 00:05:12.170 --> 00:05:17.876
  • and He says, "Most assuredly, Isay to you, he who believes in
  • 00:05:17.909 --> 00:05:23.382
  • Me, the works that I do, he willdo also, and greater works than
  • 00:05:23.415 --> 00:05:33.925
  • these he will do, because I goto My Father. And whatever you
  • 00:05:33.959 --> 00:05:40.298
  • ask in My name, that I will do,that the Father may be glorified
  • 00:05:40.332 --> 00:05:48.740
  • in the Son. If you ask anythingin My name, I will do it." This
  • 00:05:48.774 --> 00:05:58.717
  • is a stunning scripture.Something we pass over too
  • 00:05:58.750 --> 00:06:03.355
  • quickly because He says anythingin My name. Now, some people
  • 00:06:03.388 --> 00:06:09.161
  • think that the word "ask" is apleading word. It is like a
  • 00:06:09.194 --> 00:06:14.933
  • permission word that you areasking for permission. But
  • 00:06:14.966 --> 00:06:19.504
  • that's not what this word isused for here. In fact, the
  • 00:06:19.538 --> 00:06:23.375
  • original word in this contextsays an uncertain origin. And so
  • 00:06:23.408 --> 00:06:28.413
  • the translators put in the wordask. They could put in declare.
  • 00:06:28.447 --> 00:06:33.051
  • They could put in pronounce.They could put in require.
  • 00:06:33.084 --> 00:06:37.456
  • Whatever you require in My name.Whatever you declare in My name.
  • 00:06:37.489 --> 00:06:41.793
  • Whatever you pronounce in Myname. And those all would fit as
  • 00:06:41.827 --> 00:06:46.865
  • you look this up within the samecontext because in today's
  • 00:06:46.898 --> 00:06:50.302
  • modern vernacular the word askis often use in a form of
  • 00:06:50.335 --> 00:06:54.506
  • permission. I tell peoplesometimes. You know, when I'm
  • 00:06:54.539 --> 00:06:57.909
  • sitting at the table with myfamily and the potatoes are way
  • 00:06:57.943 --> 00:07:01.213
  • down the table and I just say,"Hey, hon, could you pass the
  • 00:07:01.246 --> 00:07:06.251
  • potatoes please." I'm asking forit, but I'm not asking because
  • 00:07:06.284 --> 00:07:10.021
  • they, I have to have permissionto have the potatoes. It's just
  • 00:07:10.055 --> 00:07:14.793
  • how we move food around thetable with 17 people at it. And
  • 00:07:14.826 --> 00:07:20.031
  • so in life, we have tounderstand that the name of
  • 00:07:20.065 --> 00:07:23.168
  • Jesus and asking for things inthat name or declaring things in
  • 00:07:23.201 --> 00:07:28.006
  • that name, requiring things inthat name, is not commanding God
  • 00:07:28.039 --> 00:07:32.477
  • around. It is not asking Him forsomething that He has not done.
  • 00:07:32.511 --> 00:07:38.383
  • It's literally using the namefor what has already been giving
  • 00:07:38.416 --> 00:07:43.421
  • you. You are simply using thename to use the inheritance He's
  • 00:07:43.455 --> 00:07:48.827
  • already won for you and He'salready been given to you
  • 00:07:48.860 --> 00:07:52.631
  • through the name of Jesus. Now,one of the best ways to describe
  • 00:07:52.664 --> 00:07:58.770
  • to people how this works becausewe always read scripture
  • 00:07:58.803 --> 00:08:03.475
  • recognizing when it was written,to whom it was written. So we
  • 00:08:03.508 --> 00:08:08.547
  • have it in context recognizethat the whole Bible is still
  • 00:08:08.580 --> 00:08:12.517
  • written for us and we mustunderstand it. Today we have
  • 00:08:12.551 --> 00:08:16.488
  • something called the power ofattorney. How much power is
  • 00:08:16.521 --> 00:08:20.625
  • that? Well, it always depends onhow much they've got. See, the
  • 00:08:20.659 --> 00:08:24.996
  • power of attorney is the rightto access all they owned. The
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:30.635
  • right to make decisions in wherethey have authority. And so if
  • 00:08:30.669 --> 00:08:36.274
  • you have next to nothing, thepower of attorney doesn't give
  • 00:08:36.308 --> 00:08:39.377
  • you much more. If you've gotfive bucks in the bank and owned
  • 00:08:39.411 --> 00:08:42.647
  • nothing, and I was to take overthe power of attorney for you. I
  • 00:08:42.681 --> 00:08:46.117
  • have power of attorney over fivebucks and nothing else. So when
  • 00:08:46.151 --> 00:08:50.288
  • you look at the power ofattorney, you look at what that
  • 00:08:50.322 --> 00:08:53.792
  • person has, who they are, theirinfluence, etcetera. And so when
  • 00:08:53.825 --> 00:09:00.665
  • He says you can use My name. Heis giving us the power of
  • 00:09:00.699 --> 00:09:06.671
  • attorney over all that Jesus hasauthority over. And in the Bible
  • 00:09:06.705 --> 00:09:12.844
  • it teaches us in the gospelsthere Jesus says all authority
  • 00:09:12.877 --> 00:09:17.015
  • is given to Me in heaven and onearth. And then He says, "Now,
  • 00:09:17.048 --> 00:09:20.885
  • you go." And from that point on,it is the name used in
  • 00:09:20.919 --> 00:09:27.058
  • authority. Now, there are placesI cannot use the name where it
  • 00:09:27.092 --> 00:09:32.397
  • has no authority. Let me giveyou an example. I cannot command
  • 00:09:32.430 --> 00:09:37.102
  • you to do something in the nameJesus and be able to use that
  • 00:09:37.135 --> 00:09:42.440
  • authority because God has madeyou an individual and given you
  • 00:09:42.474 --> 00:09:47.012
  • authority over your life. Now,if you're attacking me or you
  • 00:09:47.045 --> 00:09:52.250
  • became a weapon against me, itis a very dangerous place to be
  • 00:09:52.283 --> 00:09:56.955
  • because I continually confessthat no weapon formed against me
  • 00:09:56.988 --> 00:10:00.825
  • prosper. Every mouth that risesagainst me, I put it down. And
  • 00:10:00.859 --> 00:10:05.363
  • whatever enemy comes against meone way. They will flee before
  • 00:10:05.397 --> 00:10:09.000
  • me seven ways. So you don't wantto become an enemy to another
  • 00:10:09.034 --> 00:10:12.570
  • believer because then you canget into trouble. But I cannot
  • 00:10:12.604 --> 00:10:16.341
  • use the name of Jesus to makeyou do something. That is
  • 00:10:16.374 --> 00:10:21.479
  • outside of the authority that itis been given for. But when it
  • 00:10:21.513 --> 00:10:25.450
  • comes to sickness, disease, yourprosperity, the blessing of God
  • 00:10:25.483 --> 00:10:29.487
  • on your home. All of thepromises of God that are in the
  • 00:10:29.521 --> 00:10:32.791
  • Bible. This name Jesus. It hasthe ability to unlock all of the
  • 00:10:32.824 --> 00:10:41.800
  • power of God. Listen to anotherverse in John 16:23-24. "And in
  • 00:10:41.833 --> 00:10:47.972
  • that day you shall ask Menothing." What? Jesus is telling
  • 00:10:48.006 --> 00:10:54.012
  • His disciples there's coming aday you're going to ask Me
  • 00:10:54.045 --> 00:10:57.749
  • nothing. "Verily, verily, I sayto you, whatsoever you ask the
  • 00:10:57.782 --> 00:11:03.555
  • Father in My name, He will giveit to you. Hitherto have you
  • 00:11:03.588 --> 00:11:09.761
  • asked nothing in My name. Ask,and you shall receive, that your
  • 00:11:09.794 --> 00:11:16.634
  • joy may be full." I want you tonotice here that they had asked
  • 00:11:16.668 --> 00:11:22.974
  • Jesus for everything. Thedisciples that there was a
  • 00:11:23.007 --> 00:11:26.745
  • problem. They'd lined up behindJesus while demoniac run at the
  • 00:11:26.778 --> 00:11:30.448
  • whole group with them and fellon his face. It was Jesus that
  • 00:11:30.482 --> 00:11:33.852
  • had to help them to calm thestorm. It was Jesus that fed the
  • 00:11:33.885 --> 00:11:37.989
  • thousands. You know, they'realways asking Jesus for
  • 00:11:38.022 --> 00:11:40.825
  • something. And now He's sayingyou don't need to ask me for
  • 00:11:40.859 --> 00:11:44.162
  • anything anymore. And this is animportant teaching because many
  • 00:11:44.195 --> 00:11:47.098
  • people in the Christian worldwhile they're weeping and crying
  • 00:11:47.132 --> 00:11:50.101
  • saying, "Dear sweet Jesus.Please help me, Jesus, Jesus.
  • 00:11:50.135 --> 00:11:52.637
  • Help me, help me, Jesus. Whereare you Jesus? I need you,
  • 00:11:52.670 --> 00:11:55.006
  • Jesus." And Jesus is saying,"You don't ask me for anything
  • 00:11:55.039 --> 00:11:57.742
  • anymore." What? He's saying youpray to the Father and you use
  • 00:11:57.776 --> 00:12:04.449
  • My name. And the name unlockswhatever inheritance that Jesus
  • 00:12:04.482 --> 00:12:10.722
  • has won. Whatever influenceJesus has, what authority,
  • 00:12:10.755 --> 00:12:14.526
  • whatever power is in Jesus, isin His name as you believe. All
  • 00:12:14.559 --> 00:12:23.835
  • right. So here then, anotherthing I want you to notice in
  • 00:12:23.868 --> 00:12:26.871
  • John 16:23-24, is that ask, andyou shall receive. Again, that
  • 00:12:26.905 --> 00:12:31.743
  • word ask. Yes, ask is accuratebut not in the way of, "Well, I
  • 00:12:31.776 --> 00:12:35.814
  • sure hope He's going to dosomething." No. You are
  • 00:12:35.847 --> 00:12:38.683
  • declaring, proclaiming,desiring, asking for something
  • 00:12:38.716 --> 00:12:43.188
  • that has already been done. Itis not an asking because they're
  • 00:12:43.221 --> 00:12:48.993
  • going to vote on amongst theangels, you know. The apostles
  • 00:12:49.027 --> 00:12:51.930
  • aren't going to get together andsay, "Well, Leon, asked to get
  • 00:12:51.963 --> 00:12:54.799
  • healed. Let's vote on it. Leonasked to prosper and to be
  • 00:12:54.833 --> 00:12:58.203
  • blessed. Let's take a vote onit." No. You are simply using
  • 00:12:58.236 --> 00:13:02.006
  • the, just like you would useyour access card, your name,
  • 00:13:02.040 --> 00:13:06.244
  • your face, whatever bankingwants to use to give you access
  • 00:13:06.277 --> 00:13:10.181
  • to your accounts, yourresources. The name of Jesus has
  • 00:13:10.215 --> 00:13:15.019
  • spiritual power to give youaccess to what you have
  • 00:13:15.053 --> 00:13:19.090
  • inherited but there is a caveatthere. It is what you believe.
  • 00:13:19.123 --> 00:13:24.362
  • So some only believe, me as alittle six-year-old boy. I knew
  • 00:13:24.395 --> 00:13:28.266
  • enough that Jesus name thathealing was a part of me. And as
  • 00:13:28.299 --> 00:13:32.303
  • a young guy growing up, Iremember in grade school being
  • 00:13:32.337 --> 00:13:35.373
  • chased by a dog. And all of asudden, seeing this thing just
  • 00:13:35.406 --> 00:13:39.077
  • and it wasn't just a happy dog.And I remember using the name of
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:41.779
  • Jesus, and this thing juststopping and turning around just
  • 00:13:41.813 --> 00:13:45.717
  • walking off. Now, anotherinteresting thing about the name
  • 00:13:45.750 --> 00:13:50.154
  • of Jesus is a miracle that takesplace in the book of Acts. It is
  • 00:13:50.188 --> 00:13:55.426
  • a stunning teaching. Now,there's a lot of stories that
  • 00:13:55.460 --> 00:13:58.830
  • took place. The Bible says thethings Jesus done, did would
  • 00:13:58.863 --> 00:14:02.467
  • have filled up, you know, books,incredible amount of books. But
  • 00:14:02.500 --> 00:14:06.137
  • what is put in the scripture,what has been put in the Holy
  • 00:14:06.170 --> 00:14:09.140
  • Scripture is always got apurpose. And if you don't,
  • 00:14:09.173 --> 00:14:12.176
  • there's many things I've neverunderstood till this year. I'll
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:15.113
  • be reading the Word of God and abeautiful understanding of this
  • 00:14:15.146 --> 00:14:17.715
  • principle. Now open up thisverse which I never understood
  • 00:14:17.749 --> 00:14:20.852
  • before. So I didn't want toteach from them or misuse them.
  • 00:14:20.885 --> 00:14:24.489
  • But I can see the clarity andthe same is true for you and I.
  • 00:14:24.522 --> 00:14:28.860
  • Now, in Acts 3:1-10, we've gotPeter and John who are going up
  • 00:14:28.893 --> 00:14:33.531
  • to the temple at the ninth hour,the hour of prayer. And there's
  • 00:14:33.564 --> 00:14:37.168
  • a man was lame from his mother'swomb was being carried along
  • 00:14:37.201 --> 00:14:40.571
  • whom they used to get, who theyused to set down every day at
  • 00:14:40.605 --> 00:14:44.509
  • the gate of the temple, which iscalled Beautiful, in order to
  • 00:14:44.542 --> 00:14:47.946
  • beg alms of those who wereentering the temple. Here's an
  • 00:14:47.979 --> 00:14:51.582
  • interesting note. Maybe we'lltalk about this another time.
  • 00:14:51.616 --> 00:14:54.852
  • Jesus passed by this man forthree years and he was never
  • 00:14:54.886 --> 00:14:59.157
  • healed. So for those who thinkthat Jesus just walked
  • 00:14:59.190 --> 00:15:02.427
  • indiscriminately and healedeverybody He saw. You need to
  • 00:15:02.460 --> 00:15:05.296
  • read the Word of God in context.There were times in His teaching
  • 00:15:05.330 --> 00:15:09.033
  • that as He taught to certaingroups of people that there was
  • 00:15:09.067 --> 00:15:11.836
  • such an understanding in faiththat rose, that He healed them
  • 00:15:11.869 --> 00:15:15.573
  • all. But yet in His hometown Hecouldn't heal anybody. There was
  • 00:15:15.606 --> 00:15:19.844
  • a time by the pool He went, andHe healed one man and walked off
  • 00:15:19.877 --> 00:15:24.148
  • and the entire pool was filledwith people. So there's an
  • 00:15:24.182 --> 00:15:27.819
  • interesting teaching in all ofthis. So this man have been
  • 00:15:27.852 --> 00:15:31.222
  • sitting there from his birth.Now he's a full-grown man. And
  • 00:15:31.255 --> 00:15:35.960
  • so he looks at Peter and in Johnand he says, "Alms for the
  • 00:15:35.994 --> 00:15:39.597
  • poor." Peter looks at him andsays, "Silver and gold have I
  • 00:15:39.630 --> 00:15:43.901
  • none right now. But what I have,I give you." And the man looks
  • 00:15:43.935 --> 00:15:48.840
  • at them expecting to receive.This word "expecting to receive"
  • 00:15:48.873 --> 00:15:53.511
  • is powerful. Something is takingplace. Hope is rising in this
  • 00:15:53.544 --> 00:15:58.649
  • man. And Peter said, "Look onus." Today, religious people
  • 00:15:58.683 --> 00:16:03.254
  • would say, "Don't look at us.We're nothing. We're just, you
  • 00:16:03.287 --> 00:16:05.823
  • know." And I understand whatthey think they're saying. But
  • 00:16:05.857 --> 00:16:08.826
  • Peter didn't operate that. Hesaid, "Look on us." And the man
  • 00:16:08.860 --> 00:16:12.363
  • looked on them expecting toreceive. Then he said this, "In
  • 00:16:12.397 --> 00:16:15.767
  • the name of Jesus Christ." Andthis man comes to his feet. I
  • 00:16:15.800 --> 00:16:20.838
  • mean, laughing, dancing,praising God, goes into the
  • 00:16:20.872 --> 00:16:25.243
  • temple. And Peter, I'm going toread one verse as Peter explains
  • 00:16:25.276 --> 00:16:30.281
  • what happen. And it's veryrevealing when looking at the
  • 00:16:30.314 --> 00:16:34.285
  • name of Jesus. And Peter sayshere on the bases of faith in
  • 00:16:34.318 --> 00:16:41.259
  • His name. It is the name ofJesus which has strengthened
  • 00:16:41.292 --> 00:16:47.432
  • this man whom you see and know.And the faith which comes
  • 00:16:47.465 --> 00:16:52.703
  • through him has given him thisperfect health in the presence
  • 00:16:52.737 --> 00:16:58.009
  • of you all. This name Jesus allthrough the scriptures, it talks
  • 00:16:58.042 --> 00:17:03.815
  • about giving glory to the name.The power in the name. It talks
  • 00:17:03.848 --> 00:17:09.387
  • about using the name in prayer,using the name in authority.
  • 00:17:09.420 --> 00:17:14.358
  • In Ephesians as it teaches allthe beautiful prayers that Paul
  • 00:17:14.392 --> 00:17:19.297
  • would pray. One of the things itsays at the end of one prayer.
  • 00:17:19.330 --> 00:17:23.034
  • I believe it is chapter 3. ThatHe's going to do exceedingly,
  • 00:17:23.067 --> 00:17:26.704
  • abundantly, above all that youask or think. But it doesn't
  • 00:17:26.737 --> 00:17:30.708
  • stop there. It goes on to sayaccording to the power that is
  • 00:17:30.741 --> 00:17:36.347
  • at work within you. This issueof faith. What do you know?
  • 00:17:36.380 --> 00:17:41.385
  • What do you believe? My peopleperish for a lack of knowledge.
  • 00:17:41.419 --> 00:17:45.656
  • You need to get into His Word.Understand what is your
  • 00:17:45.690 --> 00:17:48.960
  • inheritance. Understand whatauthority Jesus has. Why it was
  • 00:17:48.993 --> 00:17:53.397
  • transferred to you as wellbecause from the cross to the
  • 00:17:53.431 --> 00:17:56.901
  • throne. When He said, "I've gotto go to my Father so that I can
  • 00:17:56.934 --> 00:17:59.637
  • send you Holy Spirit and He'sgoing to guide you in this."
  • 00:17:59.670 --> 00:18:02.373
  • This name Jesus has been givento you. It is yours to use. And
  • 00:18:02.406 --> 00:18:11.682
  • how powerful that name becomesfrom your lips is equally and
  • 00:18:11.716 --> 00:18:18.689
  • proportionally attach to youknowing Jesus, to you knowing
  • 00:18:18.723 --> 00:18:26.731
  • His Word. And Holy Spirit's jobis to cause this Word to take
  • 00:18:26.764 --> 00:18:32.637
  • root in your heart and somethingrises up on the inside of you.
  • 00:18:32.670 --> 00:18:37.742
  • Something rises up, not likethis begging. It's like I was
  • 00:18:37.775 --> 00:18:43.080
  • saying if someone, you wereshopping in a mall and some
  • 00:18:43.114 --> 00:18:47.084
  • person came and grab yourone-year-old toddler walking
  • 00:18:47.118 --> 00:18:50.922
  • around you. Just picked him upand didn't even run. Just said,
  • 00:18:50.955 --> 00:18:53.958
  • "This is my child." And youwent, "What?" This is my child.
  • 00:18:53.991 --> 00:18:58.062
  • And you go, "Not a chance!" Now,if you haven't already taken
  • 00:18:58.095 --> 00:19:02.366
  • that person out, security'sgoing to come. And you're not
  • 00:19:02.400 --> 00:19:05.736
  • gonna be going, "Well, I surehope this works out. I sure hope
  • 00:19:05.770 --> 00:19:08.005
  • that I can prove this is mychild. Listen, this is totally
  • 00:19:08.039 --> 00:19:10.875
  • wrong. This is my child." Now,you're not going to act like
  • 00:19:10.908 --> 00:19:13.945
  • that. There is going to be thisincredible strength that rises
  • 00:19:13.978 --> 00:19:18.749
  • up on the inside of you. Howdare you touch my child! And I
  • 00:19:18.783 --> 00:19:23.120
  • think we need to understand thatwhen you have rights and
  • 00:19:23.154 --> 00:19:27.592
  • privileges and an inheritancewith all the promises of God in
  • 00:19:27.625 --> 00:19:32.029
  • the Word. Stop acting like youdon't have them. That they're
  • 00:19:32.063 --> 00:19:36.100
  • not yours. But instead we're notusing the name of Jesus from a
  • 00:19:36.133 --> 00:19:41.105
  • place of weakness. Hoping. We'reusing the name of Jesus from a
  • 00:19:41.138 --> 00:19:46.210
  • place of incredible power andauthority because you, my
  • 00:19:46.244 --> 00:19:50.214
  • friend, are seated with Jesus.You know, you are with Him in
  • 00:19:50.248 --> 00:19:54.552
  • heavenly places. Meaning thatHis authority has been
  • 00:19:54.585 --> 00:19:58.089
  • transferred to you as well. Itis not gone from Him. But He's
  • 00:19:58.122 --> 00:20:01.292
  • the head, we're the body. And sowhen you begin to understand,
  • 00:20:01.325 --> 00:20:04.528
  • it's no longer, "Well, I surehope I don't get sick." It's no!
  • 00:20:04.562 --> 00:20:08.799
  • It is my right and my privilege.Done with the name of Jesus.
  • 00:20:08.833 --> 00:20:12.336
  • It is for sure is He died on thecross and it is a part of the
  • 00:20:12.370 --> 00:20:16.874
  • promises of God. He hasqualified me for. This kind of a
  • 00:20:16.907 --> 00:20:20.578
  • strength that rises up on theinside of you only can it be
  • 00:20:20.611 --> 00:20:25.616
  • Holy Spirit in the Word doing awork in your heart. You can put
  • 00:20:25.650 --> 00:20:29.654
  • it on like I just did. It won'tdo a thing. You can put on
  • 00:20:29.687 --> 00:20:32.757
  • confidence. Put on anger. Buthuman faith won't acquire the
  • 00:20:32.790 --> 00:20:38.296
  • promises and it won't get youmore authority. But this quiet
  • 00:20:38.329 --> 00:20:42.533
  • meditation of learning, reading,studying the scriptures, and
  • 00:20:42.566 --> 00:20:47.238
  • knowing what Jesus has done andrecognizing it. And let Holy
  • 00:20:47.271 --> 00:20:51.175
  • Spirit go to work on your heart.Until something rises up on
  • 00:20:51.208 --> 00:20:54.345
  • the inside of you. And the Biblesays that the victory that
  • 00:20:54.378 --> 00:20:58.516
  • overcomes anything in the world,grows anything in the world like
  • 00:20:58.549 --> 00:21:02.520
  • family, home, finances, health.That it is by faith. Where does
  • 00:21:02.553 --> 00:21:06.891
  • faith come from? It comes fromGod's Word, from the Word of
  • 00:21:06.924 --> 00:21:11.929
  • God. To all the lazy people whoare watching this, and of
  • 00:21:11.962 --> 00:21:15.866
  • course, there's no one here. Ifyou don't study the Word. If you
  • 00:21:15.900 --> 00:21:19.637
  • do not meditate in the Word. Ifyou do not get to know Jesus. So
  • 00:21:19.670 --> 00:21:23.574
  • you begin to connect with Him atthe heart level. And this
  • 00:21:23.607 --> 00:21:26.777
  • relationship with Jesus and theWord, which are one. That is
  • 00:21:26.811 --> 00:21:32.083
  • where something rises up on theinside of you. And when you use
  • 00:21:32.116 --> 00:21:37.355
  • the name Jesus, something withinyou. When I just say something,
  • 00:21:37.388 --> 00:21:45.896
  • and I just say, "In Jesus name."Something inside of me leaps
  • 00:21:45.930 --> 00:21:50.368
  • with all the authority that I'vestudied and all that I'm aware
  • 00:21:50.401 --> 00:21:55.005
  • of with God's Word and how HolySpirit has helped planted it in
  • 00:21:55.039 --> 00:22:00.678
  • my heart, until there's a senseof ownership, a sense that is
  • 00:22:00.711 --> 00:22:05.983
  • all wrap into that word Jesus. Iwant you to get into His Word.
  • 00:22:06.016 --> 00:22:12.189
  • Learn that this name, this nameis not magic. This name
  • 00:22:12.223 --> 00:22:17.294
  • unleashes everything that is onthe inside of you. It has the
  • 00:22:17.328 --> 00:22:21.665
  • ability to unleash all of thepower of Jesus Christ into any
  • 00:22:21.699 --> 00:22:27.405
  • situation. But if you areignorant of the Word, not
  • 00:22:27.438 --> 00:22:31.876
  • meditated in the Word, notplanted it in your heart. Then
  • 00:22:31.909 --> 00:22:35.679
  • there's this knowing mentallybut not this connection at
  • 00:22:35.713 --> 00:22:41.819

  • 00:24:37.401 --> 00:24:42.206
  • planet, He spoke words. Hedidn't like snap His fingers or
  • 00:24:42.239 --> 00:24:46.977
  • fling His arm or lightning voltsthrough His hands. He spoke
  • 00:24:47.011 --> 00:24:51.181
  • words. And the Bible says thatthose words went out and
  • 00:24:51.215 --> 00:24:55.119
  • accomplished the things they hadbeen sent forth to do. So what
  • 00:24:55.152 --> 00:25:00.491
  • are your words saying aboutrelationships, health, etcetera.

  • communicate to a banker whereyou are in finances and you
  • 00:25:10.834 --> 00:25:14.038
  • might have to renegotiatepayments. You know, we need to
  • 00:25:14.071 --> 00:25:17.708
  • speak truth as far as what ishappening. But then in your
  • 00:25:17.741 --> 00:25:21.912
  • prayer time and in your regularspeaking, let them be words of
  • 00:25:21.946 --> 00:25:26.083
  • victory. That God is within youand you will overcome. That the
  • 00:25:26.116 --> 00:25:30.287
  • blessing of the Lord maketh itrich and He addeth no sorrow to
  • 00:25:30.321 --> 00:25:33.324
  • it. That you are convinced. Thatthat these words, so many people
  • 00:25:33.357 --> 00:25:37.227
  • they kind of have this duallife. That they talk about all
  • 00:25:37.261 --> 00:25:40.531
  • their problems and then they'llthrow this little cloth, but
  • 00:25:40.564 --> 00:25:43.901
  • we're believing God. No, whereyour words are, what you say
  • 00:25:43.934 --> 00:25:48.038
  • regularly to your friends. Howyou talk about your problems to
  • 00:25:48.072 --> 00:25:52.242
  • your spouse, your friends. Howyou speak about things to those
  • 00:25:52.276 --> 00:25:55.779
  • around you. It's releasingpower. So make sure that your
  • 00:25:55.813 --> 00:26:00.117
  • words are declaring the end fromthe beginning. That as far as

  • you're concerned, it is done.Negative things, pains,
  • 00:26:04.855 --> 00:26:08.025
