  • It's time we lift them up.
  • 00:00:51.501 --> 00:00:53.203
  • It's time that westand together.
  • 00:00:53.236 --> 00:00:55.171
  • It's time that we put the devilunder our feet.
  • 00:00:55.205 --> 00:00:57.841
  • It's time for today's message,"The Anthem of your Voice."
  • 00:00:57.874 --> 00:01:02.078
  • Duane Vander Klok: But I thinkall of us know that God has a
  • 00:01:02.112 --> 00:01:04.481
  • plan for our lives.
  • 00:01:04.514 --> 00:01:06.149
  • The Bible tells us in Jeremiah,God says, "I know the thoughts I
  • 00:01:06.182 --> 00:01:11.354
  • have towards you.
  • 00:01:11.387 --> 00:01:12.722
  • They're for peace and not evil,to give you a future and
  • 00:01:12.755 --> 00:01:15.258
  • a hope."
  • 00:01:15.291 --> 00:01:16.593
  • So God is not mad at you.
  • 00:01:16.626 --> 00:01:19.129
  • He's not up in heaven with a bigfly swatter, waiting for you to
  • 00:01:19.162 --> 00:01:23.166
  • step out of line.
  • 00:01:23.199 --> 00:01:24.634
  • In fact, everything that couldseparate you and me from God was
  • 00:01:24.667 --> 00:01:28.771
  • taken out of the way when Jesuswent to the cross and paid for
  • 00:01:28.805 --> 00:01:33.009
  • our redemption.
  • 00:01:33.042 --> 00:01:34.377
  • However, Satan also has a plan,and Jesus described it this way
  • 00:01:34.410 --> 00:01:38.915
  • in John 10:10.
  • 00:01:38.948 --> 00:01:40.250
  • He said, "The thief, he onlycomes to steal, to kill, and to
  • 00:01:40.283 --> 00:01:44.187
  • destroy, but I've come that youmay have life and have
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:48.525
  • it abundantly."
  • 00:01:48.558 --> 00:01:50.160
  • So Satan's plan is to steal, tokill, and to destroy, where
  • 00:01:50.193 --> 00:01:56.199
  • God's plan is the opposite, foran abundant life.
  • 00:01:57.367 --> 00:02:00.737
  • In the book of James chapter 1,it says this.
  • 00:02:00.770 --> 00:02:03.239
  • It says, "Don't be deceived,my beloved brethren.
  • 00:02:03.273 --> 00:02:05.708
  • Every good gift, every perfectgift comes down from the Father
  • 00:02:05.742 --> 00:02:10.313
  • of light, in whom there is novariation or shadow of turning."
  • 00:02:10.346 --> 00:02:14.884
  • So if it's good,it's coming from God.
  • 00:02:14.918 --> 00:02:17.487
  • And notice, God doesnot have bad days.
  • 00:02:17.520 --> 00:02:21.691
  • God does not get in a bad mood.
  • 00:02:21.724 --> 00:02:23.960
  • God does not get ticked off.
  • 00:02:23.993 --> 00:02:26.429
  • There is no variation.
  • 00:02:26.462 --> 00:02:27.897
  • There is not even a shadow ofturning with God.
  • 00:02:27.931 --> 00:02:31.968
  • He is the same always.
  • 00:02:32.001 --> 00:02:35.104
  • And he comes for us to havelife, but the devil comes to
  • 00:02:35.138 --> 00:02:38.308
  • steal, kill, and destroy.
  • 00:02:38.341 --> 00:02:39.642
  • Now, I just want everybody tojust say this out loud.
  • 00:02:39.676 --> 00:02:42.345
  • Just say, "Good God, bad devil."
  • 00:02:42.378 --> 00:02:48.351
  • Good God, bad devil.
  • 00:02:48.384 --> 00:02:53.289
  • Now, really this verse is likethe great divide.
  • 00:02:53.323 --> 00:02:56.659
  • It shows us what comes from God,what does not come from God.
  • 00:02:56.693 --> 00:03:02.031
  • And if we can really grab holdof that, I like to say it
  • 00:03:02.065 --> 00:03:05.568
  • like this.
  • 00:03:05.602 --> 00:03:06.936
  • You know more than 90% oftheologians if you can just grab
  • 00:03:06.970 --> 00:03:09.739
  • that one thing: God is good, thedevil is bad.
  • 00:03:09.772 --> 00:03:14.544
  • There's a picture in the Bible,in the book of Job, about a man
  • 00:03:14.577 --> 00:03:19.282
  • who was attacked by the devil.
  • 00:03:19.315 --> 00:03:20.717
  • First, he attacks his finances,attacks his family, attacks his
  • 00:03:20.750 --> 00:03:25.021
  • health, attacks his marriage.
  • 00:03:25.054 --> 00:03:26.923
  • And when Satan comes, what weneed to do as Christians is we
  • 00:03:26.956 --> 00:03:31.094
  • need to stand against thetemptations that he comes with,
  • 00:03:31.127 --> 00:03:36.432
  • but also the works that he comeswith.
  • 00:03:36.466 --> 00:03:40.203
  • Not just a temptation,but his works.
  • 00:03:40.236 --> 00:03:42.772
  • What does he bring into ourlives and into the world?
  • 00:03:42.805 --> 00:03:46.743
  • We need to standagainst those things.
  • 00:03:46.776 --> 00:03:48.778
  • Now, to know what comes fromGod--again, good God,
  • 00:03:48.811 --> 00:03:52.448
  • bad devil.
  • 00:03:52.482 --> 00:03:53.816
  • Kill, steal, and destroy;abundant life.
  • 00:03:53.850 --> 00:03:55.752
  • But I want you to think about itlike this for a moment.
  • 00:03:55.785 --> 00:03:58.021
  • If you look at the beginning ofyour Bible, Genesis 1, 2, 3,
  • 00:03:58.054 --> 00:04:02.792
  • God creates this awesome,beautiful, beautiful planet.
  • 00:04:02.825 --> 00:04:07.063
  • He puts man and womanon the planet.
  • 00:04:07.096 --> 00:04:10.800
  • There is an abundance.
  • 00:04:10.833 --> 00:04:12.669
  • There's peace.There's joy.
  • 00:04:12.702 --> 00:04:15.371
  • They have fellowship with God.There's no sickness.
  • 00:04:15.405 --> 00:04:18.074
  • There's no disease.There's no regret.
  • 00:04:18.107 --> 00:04:20.777
  • There's no pain.There's no sorrow.
  • 00:04:20.810 --> 00:04:23.479
  • None of it, right?
  • 00:04:23.513 --> 00:04:24.814
  • The devil shows up.
  • 00:04:24.847 --> 00:04:26.182
  • Sin, sickness, pain,sorrow, regret, death.
  • 00:04:26.215 --> 00:04:31.054
  • Everything comeswhen the devil comes.
  • 00:04:31.087 --> 00:04:34.857
  • Revelation chapter 20, verse 10,"And the devil, that old
  • 00:04:34.891 --> 00:04:39.929
  • serpent, he is thrown into thelake of fire, where the beast
  • 00:04:39.962 --> 00:04:43.299
  • and the false prophet are.
  • 00:04:43.333 --> 00:04:44.934
  • And he will be tormented day andnight, forever and ever."
  • 00:04:44.967 --> 00:04:49.305
  • Chapter 20, verse 10.
  • 00:04:49.339 --> 00:04:51.708
  • And by the way, when the devilreminds you about something you
  • 00:04:51.741 --> 00:04:54.577
  • did wrong, you know he's talkin'about your past, you should
  • 00:04:54.610 --> 00:04:57.680
  • remind him of his future.
  • 00:04:57.714 --> 00:04:59.649
  • It will shut him up.
  • 00:04:59.682 --> 00:05:02.151
  • But now, immediately after that,we have Revelation chapter 21.
  • 00:05:02.185 --> 00:05:08.191
  • And in Revelation chapter 21,God comes down, he abides with
  • 00:05:10.259 --> 00:05:15.698
  • us, and suddenly he wipes awayevery tear, and there's no more
  • 00:05:15.732 --> 00:05:20.303
  • pain, there's no more sorrow,there's no more death.
  • 00:05:20.336 --> 00:05:23.439
  • Everything that we consider badis gone once the devil's gone.
  • 00:05:23.473 --> 00:05:29.479
  • How many of you can tell whereit came from?
  • 00:05:29.579 --> 00:05:32.448
  • You see, everything that happensin this world is not the will
  • 00:05:32.482 --> 00:05:36.119
  • of God.
  • 00:05:36.152 --> 00:05:37.453
  • Really, all that we have betweenGenesis chapter 3 and Revelation
  • 00:05:37.487 --> 00:05:42.191
  • chapter 21 is we have a timewhere the devil and his will is
  • 00:05:42.225 --> 00:05:46.696
  • being done on this planet.
  • 00:05:46.729 --> 00:05:50.233
  • But when he's put aside, God'swill is gonna be done again.
  • 00:05:50.266 --> 00:05:54.570
  • Now, if we're pursuing God'spurpose for our life, and God's
  • 00:05:54.604 --> 00:05:59.342
  • will, and God's kingdom.
  • 00:05:59.375 --> 00:06:01.077
  • We need to remember this, thatpeople can not stop you from
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:06.382
  • fulfilling God's plan and God'spurpose for your life.
  • 00:06:06.416 --> 00:06:09.152
  • When King David was just thatyoung boy and he goes down and
  • 00:06:09.185 --> 00:06:12.688
  • he hears Goliath come out andsay, "Send me a man to fight
  • 00:06:12.722 --> 00:06:16.392
  • with me," he begins to makeinquiries.
  • 00:06:16.426 --> 00:06:19.562
  • He's like, "I thinkI could do this."
  • 00:06:19.595 --> 00:06:21.764
  • The Bible says, His" olderbrother heard when he spoke to
  • 00:06:21.798 --> 00:06:24.801
  • the men, and Eliab's anger wasaroused against David.
  • 00:06:24.834 --> 00:06:28.004
  • And he said, 'Why have youcome down here?
  • 00:06:28.037 --> 00:06:30.440
  • With whom have you left thosefew sheep in the wilderness?
  • 00:06:30.473 --> 00:06:32.909
  • I know the pride and theinsolence of your heart.
  • 00:06:32.942 --> 00:06:35.211
  • You've come downto see the battle.'
  • 00:06:35.244 --> 00:06:37.713
  • And David responded,'What have I done now?'"
  • 00:06:37.747 --> 00:06:40.383
  • How many know this is not thefirst time there have been
  • 00:06:40.416 --> 00:06:42.718
  • some problems?
  • 00:06:42.752 --> 00:06:44.053
  • "'Is there not a cause?'
  • 00:06:44.086 --> 00:06:45.421
  • And he turned from him towardsanother."
  • 00:06:45.455 --> 00:06:49.425
  • There are some people that willnot recognize the gift and the
  • 00:06:49.459 --> 00:06:52.295
  • calling of God that's on yourlife, and what you need to do is
  • 00:06:52.328 --> 00:06:56.232
  • you just need to turn around andgo in a different direction.
  • 00:06:56.265 --> 00:07:00.169
  • You may need to talk to somebodyelse, but you cannot just sit
  • 00:07:00.203 --> 00:07:03.372
  • there and let that person tearyou down.
  • 00:07:03.406 --> 00:07:06.008
  • That's not what David did.
  • 00:07:06.042 --> 00:07:08.044
  • His brother was trying to insulthim, trying to talk him out of
  • 00:07:08.077 --> 00:07:11.881
  • what God had put in his heart.
  • 00:07:11.914 --> 00:07:14.784
  • Well, then it's not--they bringhim to the king, "And Saul the
  • 00:07:14.817 --> 00:07:18.721
  • king said to David, 'You'renot able to go and fight
  • 00:07:18.754 --> 00:07:21.324
  • against the Philistine.
  • 00:07:21.357 --> 00:07:23.092
  • For you're a youth and he's beena man of war since his youth.'
  • 00:07:23.125 --> 00:07:27.029
  • But David said to Saul, 'Yourservant used to keep his
  • 00:07:27.063 --> 00:07:30.967
  • father's sheep, and a lion cameand a bear came and they took
  • 00:07:31.000 --> 00:07:34.537
  • one of those sheep.
  • 00:07:34.570 --> 00:07:35.905
  • I went after 'em.
  • 00:07:35.938 --> 00:07:37.240
  • When they turned on me,I clobbered 'em.
  • 00:07:37.273 --> 00:07:38.608
  • I killed a lion and I killed abear, and that Philistine is
  • 00:07:38.641 --> 00:07:41.777
  • gonna be just like the lion andjust like the bear.'"
  • 00:07:41.811 --> 00:07:44.947
  • Now, when you talk in faith,some people think
  • 00:07:44.981 --> 00:07:47.750
  • you're arrogant.
  • 00:07:47.783 --> 00:07:50.453
  • But there are some people, youcan bring 'em on board.
  • 00:07:50.486 --> 00:07:53.756
  • You can bring them along thejourney.
  • 00:07:53.789 --> 00:07:55.858
  • And that's what happened withSaul because Saul said, "Wow,
  • 00:07:55.892 --> 00:07:59.996
  • all right, go fight.
  • 00:08:00.029 --> 00:08:02.331
  • Go do it."
  • 00:08:02.365 --> 00:08:03.699
  • You know, the message of thecross is foolishness to those
  • 00:08:03.733 --> 00:08:07.737
  • who are perishing, but to us whoare being saved, it is the power
  • 00:08:07.770 --> 00:08:12.441
  • of God.
  • 00:08:12.475 --> 00:08:13.776
  • Jesus had multitudes of critics.
  • 00:08:13.809 --> 00:08:17.113
  • There were no shortages.
  • 00:08:17.146 --> 00:08:18.481
  • Whenever Jesus preached,some people got glad
  • 00:08:18.514 --> 00:08:20.316
  • and some people got mad.
  • 00:08:20.349 --> 00:08:22.418
  • Same thing today.
  • 00:08:22.451 --> 00:08:23.786
  • I hope you're people that getglad and not mad.
  • 00:08:23.819 --> 00:08:26.389
  • Paul, he had plenty of critics.
  • 00:08:26.422 --> 00:08:28.057
  • He's preaching in one city andthey literally had to put him in
  • 00:08:28.090 --> 00:08:32.228
  • a basket and let him down overthe wall because they're
  • 00:08:32.261 --> 00:08:35.131
  • guarding the gates of the cityto murder him.
  • 00:08:35.164 --> 00:08:39.035
  • Luke chapter 1, verse 37 says,"For with God, nothing is ever
  • 00:08:39.068 --> 00:08:44.941
  • impossible and no Word from Godwill be without power."
  • 00:08:44.974 --> 00:08:50.980
  • No Word of God will be withoutpower or impossible
  • 00:08:51.514 --> 00:08:56.218
  • of fulfillment.
  • 00:08:56.252 --> 00:08:57.620
  • So when God speaks a Word,there's power in that Word.
  • 00:08:57.653 --> 00:09:02.325
  • I want you to remember in thebeginning, God said, "Let there
  • 00:09:02.358 --> 00:09:06.696
  • be," and there was...
  • 00:09:06.729 --> 00:09:10.032
  • In other words, the parent forceof everything in the universe
  • 00:09:10.066 --> 00:09:15.738
  • was words.
  • 00:09:15.771 --> 00:09:18.507
  • Everything that you and I cansee, taste, smell, touch,
  • 00:09:18.541 --> 00:09:24.013
  • everything was createdthrough words.
  • 00:09:24.046 --> 00:09:28.818
  • God spoke those words.
  • 00:09:28.851 --> 00:09:30.453
  • Now listen, every created thingwill respond to words.
  • 00:09:30.486 --> 00:09:35.591
  • It was not only created bywords, but it will respond
  • 00:09:35.625 --> 00:09:39.195
  • to words.
  • 00:09:39.228 --> 00:09:40.563
  • The Bible says, "Death and lifeare in the power of the tongue,
  • 00:09:40.596 --> 00:09:45.134
  • and those that love it, that useit, will eat its fruit."
  • 00:09:45.167 --> 00:09:49.171
  • So no Word of God--no word isever impossible, and no Word
  • 00:09:49.205 --> 00:09:55.011
  • from God is without power.
  • 00:09:55.044 --> 00:09:56.512
  • When God makes a promisein his Word,
  • 00:09:56.545 --> 00:09:59.815
  • there is power in that Word.
  • 00:09:59.849 --> 00:10:02.952
  • The power to bring fulfillmentis in that Word.
  • 00:10:02.985 --> 00:10:06.555
  • The Bible says that all of thepromises of God are yes and amen
  • 00:10:06.589 --> 00:10:12.161
  • in Christ.
  • 00:10:12.194 --> 00:10:13.496
  • Every one of those promises,they belong to you and to me.
  • 00:10:13.529 --> 00:10:17.733
  • Now, as you're facing thisopposition, as you're moving
  • 00:10:17.767 --> 00:10:21.704
  • ahead, people cannot stop you.
  • 00:10:21.737 --> 00:10:24.807
  • And so often what we do is welook at the circumstances and
  • 00:10:24.840 --> 00:10:29.111
  • the circumstances paralyze us.
  • 00:10:29.145 --> 00:10:32.515
  • So as you're in your journey,regardless of your need,
  • 00:10:32.548 --> 00:10:36.619
  • regardless of the circumstances,keep on planting seed.
  • 00:10:36.652 --> 00:10:42.658
  • Regardless of your need,keep planting seed.
  • 00:10:43.159 --> 00:10:45.161
  • Ephesians 6:8, "Knowing thatwhatever good anyone does,"
  • 00:10:45.194 --> 00:10:49.732
  • that's you, that's me, anyone,"he will receive the same from
  • 00:10:49.765 --> 00:10:54.837
  • the Lord, whether you're slaveor free."
  • 00:10:54.870 --> 00:10:58.708
  • Your circumstances do notdetermine whether this works.
  • 00:10:58.741 --> 00:11:04.146
  • Whatever good you do, you willreceive the same from the Lord.
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:07.516
  • One paraphrase says it this way,"Whatever you make happen for
  • 00:11:07.550 --> 00:11:10.553
  • others, God will makehappen for you."
  • 00:11:10.586 --> 00:11:14.023
  • Whatever you make happen forothers, God will make happen
  • 00:11:14.056 --> 00:11:18.027
  • for you.
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:19.395
  • So what you need to do is youneed to keep planting a seed, a
  • 00:11:19.428 --> 00:11:22.498
  • word of encouragement.
  • 00:11:22.531 --> 00:11:24.500
  • Come alongside somebody.
  • 00:11:24.533 --> 00:11:26.202
  • Help them.
  • 00:11:26.235 --> 00:11:27.536
  • Maybe you need to sow somethingfinancial, or some time, or some
  • 00:11:27.570 --> 00:11:32.174
  • love, or some encouragement.
  • 00:11:32.208 --> 00:11:33.876
  • But whatever you do, keep onplanting seeds no matter what
  • 00:11:33.909 --> 00:11:38.814
  • your need may look like.
  • 00:11:38.848 --> 00:11:40.983
  • 2 Corinthians 9, verse 7, "Leteach one give as he's made up in
  • 00:11:41.016 --> 00:11:46.922
  • his own mind and purposed in hisheart, not reluctantly, not
  • 00:11:46.956 --> 00:11:50.459
  • sorrowfully, or undercompulsion, for God loves (takes
  • 00:11:50.493 --> 00:11:53.195
  • pleasure in, prizes above otherthings, and is unwilling to
  • 00:11:53.229 --> 00:11:56.899
  • abandon or do without)
  • 00:11:56.932 --> 00:11:58.234
  • a cheerful (joyous'prompt to do it')
  • 00:11:58.267 --> 00:11:59.802
  • giver (whose heartis in his giving.)"
  • 00:11:59.835 --> 00:12:03.472
  • Now, your seed can be anythingthat can benefit somebody else.
  • 00:12:03.506 --> 00:12:08.811
  • It doesn't need to bea financial seed.
  • 00:12:08.844 --> 00:12:10.913
  • Again, it can be help, it can bea word of encouragement, it can
  • 00:12:10.946 --> 00:12:14.183
  • be prayer.
  • 00:12:14.216 --> 00:12:15.551
  • Now, in 1 Samuel chapter 30,David's hometown of Ziklag is
  • 00:12:15.584 --> 00:12:21.590
  • invaded by the enemy, by someAmalekites, and they take
  • 00:12:22.158 --> 00:12:26.162
  • everybody and everything.
  • 00:12:26.195 --> 00:12:27.496
  • Now, David's gone.
  • 00:12:27.530 --> 00:12:29.131
  • When he goes back,he pursues them.
  • 00:12:29.165 --> 00:12:31.100
  • He overcomes.
  • 00:12:31.133 --> 00:12:33.169
  • And when he's coming back afterthat victory to Ziklag, it says,
  • 00:12:33.202 --> 00:12:37.473
  • "He sent some of the spoil tothe elders of Judah, to his
  • 00:12:37.506 --> 00:12:40.843
  • friends, saying, 'Here is apresent for you from the spoil
  • 00:12:40.876 --> 00:12:44.380
  • of the enemies of the Lord.'"
  • 00:12:44.413 --> 00:12:46.015
  • Now, here's what David knew.
  • 00:12:46.048 --> 00:12:48.017
  • David knew that every timesomething came into his hand,
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:51.987
  • that was--part of that was forhim, but there was part of it
  • 00:12:52.021 --> 00:12:55.524
  • that wasn't for him.
  • 00:12:55.558 --> 00:12:57.326
  • There was a part of that he wassupposed to sow.
  • 00:12:57.359 --> 00:12:59.995
  • And so the Bible actually tellsus in the book of Proverbs, it
  • 00:13:00.029 --> 00:13:03.999
  • says, "There's one who sows andyet increases, and then there's
  • 00:13:04.033 --> 00:13:08.537
  • another one who withholds whathe should sow and only
  • 00:13:08.571 --> 00:13:12.608
  • suffers want."
  • 00:13:12.641 --> 00:13:14.210
  • Now, in the natural that doesn'tmake sense.
  • 00:13:14.243 --> 00:13:16.679
  • You think, "If I'm gonna keepmore, I'm going to have more."
  • 00:13:16.712 --> 00:13:19.782
  • But if you'respiritually-minded, you realize
  • 00:13:19.815 --> 00:13:22.518
  • that's not how it works.
  • 00:13:22.551 --> 00:13:24.553
  • "Give and it will be given untoyou, pressed down, shaken
  • 00:13:24.587 --> 00:13:28.190
  • together, running over."
  • 00:13:28.224 --> 00:13:30.526
  • In Proverbs 3, and verse 9, itsays, "Honor the Lord with your
  • 00:13:30.559 --> 00:13:34.163
  • possessions, with thefirstfruits of all of your
  • 00:13:34.196 --> 00:13:36.031
  • increase, so your barns will befilled with plenty."
  • 00:13:36.065 --> 00:13:39.969
  • You see, we say, "Oh, they'retryin' to take something from
  • 00:13:40.002 --> 00:13:42.705
  • me," but God says, "No, I'm nottrying to get something from
  • 00:13:42.738 --> 00:13:46.542
  • you, I'm tryin' to getsomethin' to you."
  • 00:13:46.575 --> 00:13:49.111
  • He says, "You honor the Lordwith your substance and your
  • 00:13:49.144 --> 00:13:52.081
  • barns will be filled, and yourvats will overflow with
  • 00:13:52.114 --> 00:13:56.619
  • new wine."
  • 00:13:56.652 --> 00:13:57.953
  • He's saying when you sow, itcauses the increase to come
  • 00:13:57.987 --> 00:14:01.523
  • to you.
  • 00:14:01.557 --> 00:14:02.892
  • You may have heard me say thisbefore, but when you sow
  • 00:14:02.925 --> 00:14:04.960
  • something, it leaves your handbut it will never leave
  • 00:14:04.994 --> 00:14:08.764
  • your life.
  • 00:14:08.797 --> 00:14:10.232
  • It goes into your future, Godtakes it, God blesses it,
  • 00:14:10.266 --> 00:14:14.937
  • and he brings it back insome form into your life.
  • 00:14:14.970 --> 00:14:18.807
  • It leaves your hand,but not your life.
  • 00:14:18.841 --> 00:14:21.543
  • Remember, there's one whowithholds what he should give
  • 00:14:21.577 --> 00:14:25.648
  • and it tends to poverty.
  • 00:14:25.681 --> 00:14:29.051
  • There's another who sows andincreases all the more.
  • 00:14:29.084 --> 00:14:33.489
  • Remember, part of what comes isfor me, but part of what comes
  • 00:14:33.522 --> 00:14:37.860
  • is something that I should besowing.
  • 00:14:37.893 --> 00:14:41.764
  • And then lastly, and this isextremely important, you need to
  • 00:14:41.797 --> 00:14:45.901
  • prophesy your future.
  • 00:14:45.935 --> 00:14:49.038
  • Prophesy your future from theWord of God.
  • 00:14:49.071 --> 00:14:53.042
  • The angel appears to Mary andtells her, "You're gonna be
  • 00:14:53.075 --> 00:14:57.513
  • with child."
  • 00:14:57.546 --> 00:14:58.881
  • This is what she said.
  • 00:14:58.914 --> 00:15:00.215
  • She said, "Behold, themaidservant of the Lord.
  • 00:15:00.249 --> 00:15:02.184
  • Let it be unto me according toyour word."
  • 00:15:02.217 --> 00:15:07.022
  • She said, "What you have said,that's what's gonna be happening
  • 00:15:07.056 --> 00:15:09.892
  • to me."
  • 00:15:09.925 --> 00:15:11.260
  • And that is exactly what we needto begin to do as believers.
  • 00:15:11.293 --> 00:15:15.164
  • In Philemon chapter 1, verse 6,it says that, "The communication
  • 00:15:15.197 --> 00:15:20.069
  • of your faith may becomeeffectual by the acknowledging
  • 00:15:20.102 --> 00:15:24.306
  • of every good thing that's inyou in Christ Jesus."
  • 00:15:24.340 --> 00:15:29.211
  • Now, many Christians, althoughvery sincere, never really walk
  • 00:15:29.244 --> 00:15:35.250
  • in victory.
  • 00:15:35.617 --> 00:15:36.919
  • And the reason is they neveracknowledge, they never confess
  • 00:15:36.952 --> 00:15:41.890
  • who they are in Christ.
  • 00:15:41.924 --> 00:15:44.960
  • You need to begin to say it.
  • 00:15:44.994 --> 00:15:47.162
  • You need to begin to speak whoyou are in Christ.
  • 00:15:47.196 --> 00:15:51.033
  • Amos chapter 3, verse 7, Surelythe Lord does nothing.
  • 00:15:51.066 --> 00:15:57.006
  • "Surely the Lord does nothingunless he reveals his secrets to
  • 00:15:57.039 --> 00:16:03.045
  • his servants the prophets."
  • 00:16:03.479 --> 00:16:06.081
  • Now, once the prophet knows,the prophet speaks
  • 00:16:06.115 --> 00:16:12.021
  • what God is going to do.
  • 00:16:12.054 --> 00:16:14.323
  • And the Lord does what withoutsomebody speaking it?
  • 00:16:14.356 --> 00:16:18.193
  • Nothing.
  • 00:16:18.227 --> 00:16:19.828
  • He does nothingwithout it being spoken.
  • 00:16:19.862 --> 00:16:23.632
  • And as far as victory is gonnabecome in your life, there is
  • 00:16:23.665 --> 00:16:27.036
  • gonna be none until you begin tospeak that victory, you begin to
  • 00:16:27.069 --> 00:16:33.075
  • say who he is in your life, whatChrist purchased for you.
  • 00:16:33.409 --> 00:16:39.415
  • Again, sincerity is good, butyou need more than sincerity.
  • 00:16:39.715 --> 00:16:43.552
  • You need to begin to acknowledgewho you are in Christ, what
  • 00:16:43.585 --> 00:16:47.056
  • belongs to you in Christ, andwhat you can do in Christ.
  • 00:16:47.089 --> 00:16:52.394
  • Death and life are in the powerof the tongue.
  • 00:16:52.428 --> 00:16:55.664
  • Victory and defeat, provisionand lack are in the power of
  • 00:16:55.697 --> 00:17:00.369
  • the tongue.
  • 00:17:00.402 --> 00:17:01.703
  • Those that love it, those thatuse it, will eat the
  • 00:17:01.737 --> 00:17:03.839
  • fruit thereof.
  • 00:17:03.872 --> 00:17:05.507
  • The Bible says in Romans chapter4, God is speaking to Abraham
  • 00:17:05.541 --> 00:17:11.547
  • and he tells Abraham--
  • 00:17:13.115 --> 00:17:16.218
  • Well, his name is still Abramat this time.
  • 00:17:16.251 --> 00:17:17.653
  • He tells him to changeyour name.
  • 00:17:17.686 --> 00:17:19.988
  • And he's changing his nameto where his name means
  • 00:17:20.022 --> 00:17:23.225
  • "The father of a multitude."
  • 00:17:23.258 --> 00:17:26.695
  • And you ask, "How manykids does he have?"
  • 00:17:26.728 --> 00:17:28.163
  • None.
  • 00:17:28.197 --> 00:17:29.731
  • And he starts going aroundsaying, "I am the father of
  • 00:17:29.765 --> 00:17:32.835
  • a multitude."
  • 00:17:32.868 --> 00:17:35.404
  • Now, it says that--this is whatGod does, listen.
  • 00:17:35.437 --> 00:17:39.108
  • "As it is written, 'I've madeyou the father of many nations
  • 00:17:39.141 --> 00:17:42.344
  • in whose presence whom hebelieved, even God, who gives
  • 00:17:42.377 --> 00:17:45.180
  • life to the dead and callsthings that do not exist as if
  • 00:17:45.214 --> 00:17:51.220
  • they did.'"
  • 00:17:51.920 --> 00:17:53.288
  • He called things that did notexist as if they did.
  • 00:17:53.322 --> 00:17:57.893
  • Now, that's the exact same thinghe had Abraham do.
  • 00:17:57.926 --> 00:18:00.629
  • He had Abraham began to say,"I'm the father of a multitude,"
  • 00:18:00.662 --> 00:18:03.832
  • when he didn't have anychildren.
  • 00:18:03.866 --> 00:18:06.468
  • He was calling things that werenot as though they were.
  • 00:18:06.502 --> 00:18:11.540
  • In Hebrews 3, in verse 1 ittells us that Jesus is the High
  • 00:18:11.573 --> 00:18:15.911
  • Priest of our confession.
  • 00:18:15.944 --> 00:18:20.182
  • Now, what a prophet does, aprophet goes to God, and gets a
  • 00:18:20.215 --> 00:18:24.653
  • Word from God, and brings thatWord to God's people.
  • 00:18:24.686 --> 00:18:28.857
  • A priest does the exactopposite.
  • 00:18:28.891 --> 00:18:31.426
  • A priest listens to the people,hears their need, and brings
  • 00:18:31.460 --> 00:18:37.032
  • their word to God.
  • 00:18:37.065 --> 00:18:39.201
  • Now, the Bible says that Jesusis the High Priest of
  • 00:18:39.234 --> 00:18:42.671
  • your confession.
  • 00:18:42.704 --> 00:18:46.742
  • We can understand that to saywhat you're saying, Jesus is
  • 00:18:46.775 --> 00:18:51.880
  • saying to God the Fatherat the throne.
  • 00:18:51.914 --> 00:18:56.251
  • He's saying what you're saying.
  • 00:18:56.285 --> 00:18:58.053
  • That's why the Bible tells us inRomans chapter 10, "But what
  • 00:18:58.086 --> 00:19:02.424
  • does it--" faith--say?
  • 00:19:02.457 --> 00:19:07.262
  • The word is near you.
  • 00:19:07.296 --> 00:19:11.266
  • It's God's Word.
  • 00:19:11.300 --> 00:19:12.935
  • It's a word of victory.
  • 00:19:12.968 --> 00:19:14.503
  • It's a word of provision.
  • 00:19:14.536 --> 00:19:16.138
  • It's a word of peace.
  • 00:19:16.171 --> 00:19:17.506
  • It's a word of joy.
  • 00:19:17.539 --> 00:19:18.907
  • It's a word of healing.
  • 00:19:18.941 --> 00:19:20.475
  • The word is near you.
  • 00:19:20.509 --> 00:19:22.044
  • "It's in your mouthand in your heart."
  • 00:19:22.077 --> 00:19:27.749
  • Where does God's Wordneed to be?
  • 00:19:27.783 --> 00:19:29.184
  • It needs to be in your mouthand in your heart.
  • 00:19:29.218 --> 00:19:34.356
  • Psalms 91, David said, "I willsay of the Lord, 'He is my
  • 00:19:34.389 --> 00:19:40.395
  • refuge, my fortress, my God.
  • 00:19:40.896 --> 00:19:43.532
  • In him will I trust.'"
  • 00:19:43.565 --> 00:19:45.467
  • He's confessing whoGod is in his life.
  • 00:19:45.500 --> 00:19:49.037
  • In Psalms 107, the Bible says,"Let the redeemed of
  • 00:19:49.071 --> 00:19:52.441
  • the Lord--"
  • 00:19:52.474 --> 00:19:53.775
  • How many know that's you and me?
  • 00:19:53.809 --> 00:19:55.510
  • "Let the redeemed of the Lordsay so."
  • 00:19:55.544 --> 00:19:59.881
  • We need to confess that we havebeen redeemed by the blood of
  • 00:19:59.915 --> 00:20:04.553
  • the Lamb, what the blood ofJesus has purchased for us.
  • 00:20:04.586 --> 00:20:08.190
  • Joshua 1:8, "This book of thelaw shall not depart out of
  • 00:20:08.223 --> 00:20:11.059
  • your mouth."
  • 00:20:11.093 --> 00:20:12.761
  • We need to be speakingwhat God says.
  • 00:20:12.794 --> 00:20:15.764
  • In Job chapter 23, it says, "Youwill also declare or decree
  • 00:20:15.797 --> 00:20:21.270
  • a thing and it will beestablished for you."
  • 00:20:21.303 --> 00:20:26.675
  • It will be established for you.
  • 00:20:26.708 --> 00:20:28.577
  • When?
  • 00:20:28.610 --> 00:20:29.911
  • When you began to declare, whenyou began to decree what God
  • 00:20:29.945 --> 00:20:32.881
  • says about your situation.
  • 00:20:32.914 --> 00:20:36.084
  • In Proverbs 12, in verse 6, itsays, "But the mouth of the
  • 00:20:36.118 --> 00:20:40.422
  • upright will deliver him."
  • 00:20:40.455 --> 00:20:43.358
  • The mouth of the uprightwill deliver them.
  • 00:20:43.392 --> 00:20:46.261
  • See, we need to be sayingwhat God says.
  • 00:20:46.295 --> 00:20:49.197
  • Joel said, "Let the weak say,'I am strong.'"
  • 00:20:49.231 --> 00:20:53.602
  • Isaiah 57, God said, "I createthe fruit of your lips."
  • 00:20:53.635 --> 00:20:59.074
  • Isaiah 59, "My Word that I'veput in your mouth shall not
  • 00:20:59.107 --> 00:21:01.943
  • depart out of your mouth, northe mouth of your descendants,
  • 00:21:01.977 --> 00:21:04.246
  • nor the mouth of yourdescendants' descendants,
  • 00:21:04.279 --> 00:21:06.114
  • from this time forthand forevermore."
  • 00:21:06.148 --> 00:21:10.652
  • Hebrews 13, I believe it's verse6 where it says, "Therefore,
  • 00:21:10.686 --> 00:21:15.991
  • we will boldly say,'The Lord is my helper,
  • 00:21:16.024 --> 00:21:19.561
  • what can man do to me?'"
  • 00:21:19.594 --> 00:21:21.797
  • Romans chapter 8, they--literally, Paul talks about
  • 00:21:21.830 --> 00:21:27.402
  • every bad thing that could comeyour way, and then he says,
  • 00:21:27.436 --> 00:21:29.971
  • "What shall we then say?
  • 00:21:30.005 --> 00:21:32.407
  • What shall we then sayto these things?"
  • 00:21:32.441 --> 00:21:35.043
  • See, when bad things show up,you need to begin to
  • 00:21:35.077 --> 00:21:38.914
  • say something.
  • 00:21:38.947 --> 00:21:40.749
  • Revelation 12 says, "And theyovercame him," that's the devil,
  • 00:21:40.782 --> 00:21:45.921
  • "by the blood of the Lamb andthe word of their testimony."
  • 00:21:45.954 --> 00:21:51.960
  • Our testimony needs to be whatthe blood of Jesus has purchased
  • 00:21:52.060 --> 00:21:56.031
  • for us.
  • 00:21:56.064 --> 00:21:57.366
  • God said in Psalms 89, "Mycovenant I will not break, nor
  • 00:21:57.399 --> 00:22:02.437
  • alter the Word that's goingforth from my lips."
  • 00:22:02.471 --> 00:22:06.174
  • What God has said, he will do.
  • 00:22:06.208 --> 00:22:09.845
  • And I just want you to take onephrase out of Mark 11, and verse
  • 00:22:09.878 --> 00:22:13.715
  • 23, but Jesus said, "Verily Isay unto you that whosoever will
  • 00:22:13.749 --> 00:22:18.353
  • say to this mountain, 'Beremoved, be cast into the sea,'
  • 00:22:18.387 --> 00:22:22.224
  • and shall not doubt in his heartbut believe that those things
  • 00:22:22.257 --> 00:22:25.327
  • which he sayeth will come topass, he will have whatsoever
  • 00:22:25.360 --> 00:22:30.732
  • he sayeth."
  • 00:22:30.766 --> 00:22:32.534
  • Jesus said, "You will havewhatsoever you say."
  • 00:22:32.567 --> 00:22:36.004
  • So what we need to do is
  • 00:22:36.037 --> 00:22:37.773
  • we need to saywhat God has said.
  • 00:22:37.806 --> 00:22:41.243
  • "This book of the law shall notdepart out of your mouth.
  • 00:22:41.276 --> 00:22:45.714
  • My Word that I've put in yourmouth shall not depart out of
  • 00:22:45.747 --> 00:22:47.816
  • your mouth, or the mouth of yourdescendants, nor your
  • 00:22:47.849 --> 00:22:49.785
  • descendants' descendants,from this time forth
  • 00:22:49.818 --> 00:22:51.720
  • and forevermore,"Isaiah 59, last verse.
  • 00:22:51.753 --> 00:22:55.824
  • Begin not to give a report ofthe attack, of the situation,
  • 00:22:55.857 --> 00:23:01.863
  • but began to say what God says.
  • 00:23:02.197 --> 00:23:04.733
  • David didn't look at that giantand go, "Whoa, he's so big.
  • 00:23:04.766 --> 00:23:08.170
  • He's bad.
  • 00:23:08.203 --> 00:23:09.504
  • He's been a warriorall his life."
  • 00:23:09.538 --> 00:23:11.072
  • He said, "No, no, the God whodelivered me from the paw of the
  • 00:23:11.106 --> 00:23:14.176
  • Lion and the paw of the bearwill deliver him into my hand."
  • 00:23:14.209 --> 00:23:19.815
  • Begin to say what God says aboutyour life, all right?
  • 00:23:19.848 --> 00:23:23.752
  • And when you do, you reverseevery plan that the devil has.
  • 00:23:23.785 --> 00:23:29.157
  • Duane Vander Klok: I want to askyou something.
  • 00:23:29.191 --> 00:23:31.059
  • Have you received Jesus or doyou just know about him?
  • 00:23:31.092 --> 00:23:33.995
  • Because so often, we know aboutGod, we know about Jesus,
  • 00:23:34.029 --> 00:23:38.600
  • but that knowledge hasnot changed our life.
  • 00:23:38.633 --> 00:23:40.502
  • So the Bible says, "To as manyas receive him, to them he gives
  • 00:23:40.535 --> 00:23:44.406
  • the right to bethe children of God."
  • 00:23:44.439 --> 00:23:46.441
  • It's not enough to justknow about him.
  • 00:23:46.475 --> 00:23:49.010
  • We need to receive him as ourLord, as our Savior.
  • 00:23:49.044 --> 00:23:52.514
  • And if you're saying, "I need toget right with God today.
  • 00:23:52.547 --> 00:23:55.650
  • I'm away from God.
  • 00:23:55.684 --> 00:23:57.018
  • I've never received him.
  • 00:23:57.052 --> 00:23:58.386
  • I know about him,"would you bow your head
  • 00:23:58.420 --> 00:24:00.388
  • and pray this prayer with me?
  • 00:24:00.422 --> 00:24:02.090
  • And we're gonna do what theBible says, and we're gonna
  • 00:24:02.123 --> 00:24:03.992
  • receive Jesus.
  • 00:24:04.025 --> 00:24:06.394
  • Just make these words your own.
  • 00:24:06.428 --> 00:24:07.729
  • Say, "Oh God, I believe Jesusdied on the cross, I believe his
  • 00:24:07.762 --> 00:24:12.634
  • blood paid for my sins, and Ibelieve that he rose again.
  • 00:24:12.667 --> 00:24:17.239
  • And today, I give him all of myheart and all of my life, and I
  • 00:24:17.272 --> 00:24:22.577
  • receive him asmy Lord and Savior.
  • 00:24:22.611 --> 00:24:25.714
  • I'm gonna livefor him every day.
  • 00:24:25.747 --> 00:24:28.450
  • I thank you you've heard myprayer, that I'm forgiven.
  • 00:24:28.483 --> 00:24:31.419
  • My past is gone.
  • 00:24:31.453 --> 00:24:32.854
  • I'm a part of your kingdom todayand forever.
  • 00:24:32.888 --> 00:24:36.691
  • In Jesus's name, amen."
  • 00:24:36.725 --> 00:24:39.194
  • Now, if you prayed that prayerfrom your heart and you received
  • 00:24:39.227 --> 00:24:41.863
  • him, God heard that prayer andyou are forgiven and right
  • 00:24:41.897 --> 00:24:45.433
