  • 00:00:01.825 --> 00:00:06.096
  • We're not having a ritual here.
  • 00:00:06.129 --> 00:00:07.864
  • We are pluggingin to God's power.
  • 00:00:07.897 --> 00:00:11.401

  • 00:00:11.734 --> 00:00:16.840

  • Gregory Dickow: I wanna startin 1 Corinthians chapter 11,
  • 00:00:43.333 --> 00:00:46.136
  • verse 23, and I'm gonnaread this to you from
  • 00:00:46.169 --> 00:00:48.104
  • the English Standard Versionof the Bible, and then,
  • 00:00:48.138 --> 00:00:50.240
  • what I want to do is I want toshare with you the Word of God.
  • 00:00:50.273 --> 00:00:53.776
  • The Bible says, "Faith comesfrom hearing and hearing from
  • 00:00:53.810 --> 00:00:56.846
  • God's Word," so as you hearGod's Word today, faith is gonna
  • 00:00:56.880 --> 00:00:59.916
  • rise in your life, faith isgonna grow in your heart,
  • 00:00:59.949 --> 00:01:03.786
  • and then we're going to activateour faith by taking communion
  • 00:01:03.820 --> 00:01:07.090
  • together and experience thebenefits or the miracles of the
  • 00:01:07.123 --> 00:01:11.661
  • body and blood of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:01:11.694 --> 00:01:14.430
  • Now, there's a really--before I get to this verse
  • 00:01:14.631 --> 00:01:17.033
  • in 1 Corinthians 11, I'm justreminded of a verse
  • 00:01:17.066 --> 00:01:20.737
  • in Leviticus chapter 17,verse 11, and it says this,
  • 00:01:20.770 --> 00:01:24.874
  • "The life of the fleshis in the blood."
  • 00:01:24.908 --> 00:01:28.211
  • The life of the flesh is in theblood, and so if you don't have
  • 00:01:28.244 --> 00:01:32.382
  • any blood in your body,you're going to die, right?
  • 00:01:32.415 --> 00:01:34.817
  • The life of the flesh isin the blood.
  • 00:01:34.851 --> 00:01:36.519
  • Our life flows throughour blood.
  • 00:01:36.553 --> 00:01:39.355
  • The life of the flesh isin the blood.
  • 00:01:39.389 --> 00:01:40.990
  • Now, remember that Jesus cameto this earth as God in the
  • 00:01:41.024 --> 00:01:46.563
  • flesh, right?
  • 00:01:46.596 --> 00:01:47.897
  • Emmanuel, God with us, or God inthe flesh.
  • 00:01:47.931 --> 00:01:50.833
  • "In the beginning was the Wordand the Word was with God and
  • 00:01:50.867 --> 00:01:53.870
  • the Word became flesh andblood," right?
  • 00:01:53.903 --> 00:01:56.839
  • The Word became flesh and dweltamong us, so Jesus is
  • 00:01:56.873 --> 00:02:01.244
  • God's flesh.
  • 00:02:01.277 --> 00:02:02.612
  • When he came to the earth,he's God's flesh.
  • 00:02:02.645 --> 00:02:04.948
  • And where does the lifeof the flesh flow through?
  • 00:02:04.981 --> 00:02:10.053
  • The life of the flesh isin the blood.
  • 00:02:10.086 --> 00:02:13.723
  • And so when Jesus came to theearth, the only way that Jesus
  • 00:02:13.756 --> 00:02:17.994
  • could get God's life into ourlives and God's life into this
  • 00:02:18.027 --> 00:02:23.566
  • earth is through shedding hisblood.
  • 00:02:23.600 --> 00:02:26.269
  • Since the life of the flesh isin the blood, Jesus's blood had
  • 00:02:26.302 --> 00:02:31.007
  • to be shed so that God's lifecould flow into our lives and
  • 00:02:31.040 --> 00:02:36.879
  • God's life could flow into thisearth.
  • 00:02:36.913 --> 00:02:38.848
  • Does this make sense so far?
  • 00:02:38.881 --> 00:02:40.550
  • So Jesus couldn't just come tothe earth and then die some--
  • 00:02:40.583 --> 00:02:46.155
  • any old way.
  • 00:02:46.189 --> 00:02:47.523
  • He had--his blood had to beshed because by shedding
  • 00:02:47.557 --> 00:02:50.593
  • his blood, God's life flowedthrough his blood.
  • 00:02:50.627 --> 00:02:53.997
  • God's healing,God's forgiveness,
  • 00:02:54.030 --> 00:02:56.833
  • God's miracle power.
  • 00:02:56.866 --> 00:02:58.201
  • So the blood of Jesus is notjust a symbol.
  • 00:02:58.234 --> 00:03:02.272
  • The blood of Jesus is how thelife of God flows into
  • 00:03:02.305 --> 00:03:06.843
  • our lives.
  • 00:03:06.876 --> 00:03:08.177
  • So that's why Jesus said,"If you want a part of me,
  • 00:03:08.211 --> 00:03:11.514
  • you've gotta eat my fleshand drink my blood."
  • 00:03:11.547 --> 00:03:13.983
  • He was saying because that'swhere the life is, that's how
  • 00:03:14.017 --> 00:03:17.287
  • we're gonna experiencethe life of God.
  • 00:03:17.320 --> 00:03:18.955
  • So when we take communion,we're eating his flesh,
  • 00:03:18.988 --> 00:03:21.991
  • we're drinking his blood,we're receiving his life.
  • 00:03:22.025 --> 00:03:24.661
  • So whatever his life consistsof, when we partake of it in
  • 00:03:24.694 --> 00:03:29.098
  • communion, our life beginsto partake of what his life
  • 00:03:29.132 --> 00:03:33.803
  • is made of.
  • 00:03:33.836 --> 00:03:35.171
  • His life is made of love;we're partaking of his love.
  • 00:03:35.204 --> 00:03:37.240
  • His life is made of health;we're partaking of his healing
  • 00:03:37.273 --> 00:03:41.110
  • and his health.
  • 00:03:41.144 --> 00:03:42.445
  • His life is made up of mercy;we're partaking of his mercy.
  • 00:03:42.478 --> 00:03:47.250
  • His life flows with blessing;we're partaking of his blessing.
  • 00:03:47.283 --> 00:03:52.155
  • Whatever he is, we are partakingof it when we take communion.
  • 00:03:52.188 --> 00:03:56.326
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:03:56.359 --> 00:03:57.694
  • So the life of the flesh is inthe blood.
  • 00:03:57.727 --> 00:04:00.763
  • So when Jesus's blood was shed,God's life was made available
  • 00:04:00.797 --> 00:04:06.235
  • to us.
  • 00:04:06.269 --> 00:04:07.570
  • And when his blood washed awayour sins, his life came into our
  • 00:04:07.603 --> 00:04:11.908
  • life and we were born again.
  • 00:04:11.941 --> 00:04:14.210
  • And now, it's no longer I wholive, right?
  • 00:04:14.243 --> 00:04:17.547
  • Paul said in Galatians 2:20, "Ihave been crucified with Christ.
  • 00:04:17.580 --> 00:04:21.250
  • It's no longer I who live, butChrist lives in me, and the life
  • 00:04:21.284 --> 00:04:24.687
  • that I now live in the flesh Ilive by faith in the Son of God,
  • 00:04:24.721 --> 00:04:29.325
  • who loved me and gave himself upfor me."
  • 00:04:29.359 --> 00:04:33.129
  • So now I'm living God's lifethrough me.
  • 00:04:33.162 --> 00:04:37.133
  • God's life is living through me,so I'm not really--it's not--
  • 00:04:37.166 --> 00:04:40.903
  • Christianity is not really usliving for God as much as us
  • 00:04:40.937 --> 00:04:45.074
  • living from God.
  • 00:04:45.108 --> 00:04:46.409
  • God lives inside of us and hislife is flowing through us.
  • 00:04:46.442 --> 00:04:49.445
  • So when we speak God's Word,God's life is flowing out of us.
  • 00:04:49.479 --> 00:04:53.649
  • When we pray for the sick, God'shealing is flowing out of us.
  • 00:04:53.683 --> 00:04:56.619
  • When we forgive people,God's forgiveness is flowing
  • 00:04:56.652 --> 00:05:00.790
  • out of our lives.
  • 00:05:00.823 --> 00:05:02.458
  • You see, God's life is now in usand every time we take
  • 00:05:02.492 --> 00:05:06.929
  • communion, we're activatingthat life.
  • 00:05:06.963 --> 00:05:09.932
  • We're plugging into God's power.
  • 00:05:09.966 --> 00:05:12.735
  • And I just--I wanted you to seethat from a different point
  • 00:05:12.769 --> 00:05:16.639
  • of view than just sort of takingthe ritual of communion.
  • 00:05:16.672 --> 00:05:19.742
  • I don't want us to takecommunion as a ritual or just as
  • 00:05:19.776 --> 00:05:23.012
  • a religious tradition, but Iwant you to experience the power
  • 00:05:23.045 --> 00:05:26.182
  • that comes through the bodyand blood of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:05:26.215 --> 00:05:29.852
  • So that's why I got you in1 Corinthians chapter 11,
  • 00:05:29.886 --> 00:05:32.755
  • verse 23, "For I receivefrom the Lord
  • 00:05:32.789 --> 00:05:34.757
  • what I also delivered to you:
  • 00:05:34.791 --> 00:05:36.692
  • that the Lord Jesus on the nightthat he was betrayed took bread.
  • 00:05:36.726 --> 00:05:40.229
  • And when he had given thanks,he broke it and said,
  • 00:05:40.263 --> 00:05:42.865
  • 'This is my body,which is for you.'"
  • 00:05:42.899 --> 00:05:44.667
  • Now, this is a way--this is oneof the ways to experience God's
  • 00:05:44.700 --> 00:05:47.603
  • breakthrough power in your lifeis that even in the night that
  • 00:05:47.637 --> 00:05:50.706
  • he was betrayed, it was the verynight he was being betrayed,
  • 00:05:50.740 --> 00:05:54.944
  • and what do we see him doing?
  • 00:05:54.977 --> 00:05:56.512
  • Crying and complaining aboutbeing betrayed?
  • 00:05:56.546 --> 00:05:59.048
  • No.
  • 00:05:59.081 --> 00:06:00.383
  • Whining about being a victimbecause he's being betrayed?
  • 00:06:00.416 --> 00:06:02.718
  • No.
  • 00:06:02.752 --> 00:06:04.053
  • What do we see Jesus doing inthe night he's being betrayed?
  • 00:06:04.086 --> 00:06:06.322
  • We see him taking the bread andgiving God thanks, taking the
  • 00:06:06.355 --> 00:06:10.259
  • bread and giving God thanks.
  • 00:06:10.293 --> 00:06:12.028
  • This is a great lesson for eachof us to learn is that no matter
  • 00:06:12.061 --> 00:06:15.431
  • what is happening in our lives,we should take the bread and
  • 00:06:15.465 --> 00:06:18.901
  • give God thanks.
  • 00:06:18.935 --> 00:06:20.236
  • We should take communion andgive God thanks.
  • 00:06:20.269 --> 00:06:22.438
  • We should give God thanks evenin the very night were
  • 00:06:22.472 --> 00:06:25.141
  • being betrayed.
  • 00:06:25.174 --> 00:06:26.476
  • Sometimes your health mightbetray you, sometimes a loved
  • 00:06:26.509 --> 00:06:28.778
  • one might betray you, sometimesyour mind might betray you,
  • 00:06:28.811 --> 00:06:31.848
  • your emotions might betray you,your finances might betray you,
  • 00:06:31.881 --> 00:06:34.484
  • but what we need to do is nomatter what night it is,
  • 00:06:34.517 --> 00:06:37.854
  • especially if it's a night whereyou're being betrayed,
  • 00:06:37.887 --> 00:06:40.556
  • especially it's a nightwhen you're struggling
  • 00:06:40.590 --> 00:06:43.192
  • and there's some things that aretrying to overwhelm your soul,
  • 00:06:43.226 --> 00:06:46.128
  • give God thanksand take communion.
  • 00:06:46.162 --> 00:06:49.031
  • There's something powerful.
  • 00:06:49.065 --> 00:06:50.399
  • Sometimes we're just waiting fora life of peace before we sit
  • 00:06:50.433 --> 00:06:54.504
  • at the table, but we have torealize that God wants us
  • 00:06:54.537 --> 00:06:57.673
  • to have peace in the midstof the storm.
  • 00:06:57.707 --> 00:06:59.242
  • He said he'll prepare a tablefor us in the presence
  • 00:06:59.275 --> 00:07:02.111
  • of our enemies.
  • 00:07:02.144 --> 00:07:04.380
  • We're waiting for all ourenemies to scatter before we
  • 00:07:04.413 --> 00:07:06.315
  • have peace and God is saying,"No."
  • 00:07:06.349 --> 00:07:08.150
  • He's saying, "Take communion inthe presence of your enemies."
  • 00:07:08.184 --> 00:07:11.787
  • Eat at the table in the presenceof your enemies.
  • 00:07:11.821 --> 00:07:13.856
  • Praise God in the presence ofyour enemies.
  • 00:07:13.890 --> 00:07:16.425
  • Praise God for what Jesus did onthe cross, because no matter
  • 00:07:16.459 --> 00:07:19.695
  • what your enemy is, no matterwhat is coming against you, what
  • 00:07:19.729 --> 00:07:22.999
  • God has done for you is fargreater than what anyone can do
  • 00:07:23.032 --> 00:07:27.370
  • against you.
  • 00:07:27.403 --> 00:07:28.738
  • And God is gonna undo or outdowhatever somebody else did and
  • 00:07:28.771 --> 00:07:33.209
  • God is gonna undo or outdowhatever you did.
  • 00:07:33.242 --> 00:07:35.778
  • God is gonna undo or outdowhatever the devil did because
  • 00:07:35.811 --> 00:07:38.981
  • that's how good God is, amen?
  • 00:07:39.015 --> 00:07:41.851
  • So as we get ready to takeCommunion, Jesus said, he said,
  • 00:07:41.884 --> 00:07:47.023
  • "He gave thanks and he broke thebread, and he said, 'This is
  • 00:07:47.056 --> 00:07:49.525
  • my body, which is for you; dothis in remembrance of me.'
  • 00:07:49.559 --> 00:07:55.398
  • And in the same way he took thecup and after supper, he said,
  • 00:07:55.431 --> 00:07:59.335
  • 'This cup is the new covenant inmy blood; do this, as often as
  • 00:07:59.368 --> 00:08:03.940
  • you drink it, in remembrance ofme.'"
  • 00:08:03.973 --> 00:08:06.208
  • So there he takes the limits offof how often we can do this
  • 00:08:06.242 --> 00:08:10.212
  • because he leaves it up to us.
  • 00:08:10.246 --> 00:08:11.881
  • As often as you do it, do it inremembrance of him.
  • 00:08:11.914 --> 00:08:16.152
  • So when we take communion, we'renot supposed to remember our
  • 00:08:16.185 --> 00:08:18.821
  • sins, we're supposed to rememberhim.
  • 00:08:18.854 --> 00:08:20.890
  • We're not supposed to rememberour pain, we're supposed to
  • 00:08:20.923 --> 00:08:22.825
  • remember his healing.
  • 00:08:22.858 --> 00:08:24.160
  • We're not supposed to rememberour fears, we're supposed to
  • 00:08:24.193 --> 00:08:25.695
  • remember our faith in him.
  • 00:08:25.728 --> 00:08:28.030
  • It's in other words, we'resupposed to remember what he did
  • 00:08:28.064 --> 00:08:31.934
  • on the cross.
  • 00:08:31.968 --> 00:08:33.302
  • We're not supposed to focus onwhat we've done, we're supposed
  • 00:08:33.336 --> 00:08:36.038
  • to focus on how heout did what we did.
  • 00:08:36.072 --> 00:08:41.877
  • Whatever you did, God hasout done it, and God has
  • 00:08:41.911 --> 00:08:46.148
  • overcome it, and God has paidthe price for it,
  • 00:08:46.182 --> 00:08:49.452
  • so we're looking to the cross.
  • 00:08:49.485 --> 00:08:51.687
  • Every time we take communion,we're remembering
  • 00:08:51.721 --> 00:08:55.491
  • what Jesus did.
  • 00:08:55.524 --> 00:08:56.926
  • That's why I wanted to spendsome time teaching you about it
  • 00:08:56.959 --> 00:08:58.761
  • because I don't want you to justdo it as a ritual and get
  • 00:08:58.794 --> 00:09:01.631
  • nothing out of it.
  • 00:09:01.664 --> 00:09:02.999
  • I want you to do it the way Godsays to because it's gonna
  • 00:09:03.032 --> 00:09:06.402
  • release power in your life.
  • 00:09:06.435 --> 00:09:07.803
  • 'Cause every time people took ameal in the Bible, there was
  • 00:09:07.837 --> 00:09:10.840
  • something major that happened.
  • 00:09:10.873 --> 00:09:12.575
  • They took a meal in the presenceof their enemies and they had
  • 00:09:12.608 --> 00:09:16.078
  • peace in the presenceof their enemies.
  • 00:09:16.112 --> 00:09:18.047
  • Jesus, the Bible says two of hisdisciples took bread together
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:22.084
  • with Jesus, not recognizing him,and as soon as he broke
  • 00:09:22.118 --> 00:09:24.954
  • the bread, they recognized him.
  • 00:09:24.987 --> 00:09:27.189
  • They became awareof his presence.
  • 00:09:27.223 --> 00:09:29.258
  • He was with them the whole time,but they became aware
  • 00:09:29.291 --> 00:09:33.462
  • of his presence when they tookcommunion.
  • 00:09:33.496 --> 00:09:36.032
  • So Jesus already paid for oursins, and paid for our healing,
  • 00:09:36.065 --> 00:09:41.737
  • and paid to set us free from thecurse of the law, but when we
  • 00:09:41.771 --> 00:09:45.808
  • take communion, we're realizingor we're recognizing what
  • 00:09:45.841 --> 00:09:51.180
  • he did.
  • 00:09:51.213 --> 00:09:52.515
  • We're activating the power ofGod that's inside of us and the
  • 00:09:52.548 --> 00:09:55.685
  • power of what Jesus did for uson the cross.
  • 00:09:55.718 --> 00:09:58.254
  • You see, we have got to get awayfrom religious thinking,
  • 00:09:58.287 --> 00:10:02.591
  • which is we're just goingthrough the motions.
  • 00:10:02.625 --> 00:10:04.827
  • Hey look, when you said withyour mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"
  • 00:10:04.860 --> 00:10:10.700
  • you didn't make him Lord.
  • 00:10:10.733 --> 00:10:12.068
  • He already was Lord.
  • 00:10:12.101 --> 00:10:13.402
  • What you did when you proclaimedhim as Lord, you plugged into
  • 00:10:13.436 --> 00:10:18.207
  • the power of his salvation,'cause it says, "If you confess
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:21.310
  • with your mouth Jesus as Lordand believe in your heart that
  • 00:10:21.343 --> 00:10:23.813
  • God raised him from the dead,you are saved."
  • 00:10:23.846 --> 00:10:25.848
  • You weren't just prayingsome religious prayer,
  • 00:10:25.881 --> 00:10:28.284
  • you were tapping into the powerof salvation.
  • 00:10:28.317 --> 00:10:30.519
  • The moment you declared Jesusas Lord and you believe that
  • 00:10:30.553 --> 00:10:34.924
  • God raised him from the dead,you were plugging
  • 00:10:34.957 --> 00:10:36.726
  • into the power, right?
  • 00:10:36.759 --> 00:10:38.060
  • And so in the same way, andwhen you come up for prayer
  • 00:10:38.094 --> 00:10:41.197
  • and we lay hands on you, you'replugging into God's power.
  • 00:10:41.230 --> 00:10:44.867
  • We're not lay hands on you andjust as a dedication to
  • 00:10:44.900 --> 00:10:47.636
  • the Lord.
  • 00:10:47.670 --> 00:10:49.004
  • We're laying hands on youbecause we expect that if you
  • 00:10:49.038 --> 00:10:51.073
  • lay hands on the sick, theyshall recover, so we're tapping
  • 00:10:51.107 --> 00:10:55.344
  • in or plugging in to the power.
  • 00:10:55.377 --> 00:10:56.679
  • And in the same way, when wetake communion together today,
  • 00:10:56.712 --> 00:10:59.448
  • we're not just having a ceremonyhere.
  • 00:10:59.482 --> 00:11:02.785
  • We're not having a ritual here.
  • 00:11:02.818 --> 00:11:04.553
  • We are plugging in to God'spower and the supply of God's
  • 00:11:04.587 --> 00:11:10.292
  • power will flow through thatbread and through that cup to
  • 00:11:10.326 --> 00:11:15.197
  • the degree that you expect itto.
  • 00:11:15.231 --> 00:11:19.635
  • Let's look at some of themiracles that come through
  • 00:11:19.668 --> 00:11:24.306
  • taking communion, and we'regonna look at the example for
  • 00:11:24.340 --> 00:11:27.076
  • the next few minutes and thenwe'll take communion together.
  • 00:11:27.109 --> 00:11:29.245
  • We're gonna look at the exampleof Abraham.
  • 00:11:29.278 --> 00:11:32.081
  • When Abraham comes backfrom a battle in Genesis 14,
  • 00:11:32.114 --> 00:11:37.753
  • the high priest iswaiting for him.
  • 00:11:37.787 --> 00:11:39.889
  • The high priest's name isMelchizedek.
  • 00:11:39.922 --> 00:11:42.324
  • He was without father, withoutmother, without genealogy.
  • 00:11:42.358 --> 00:11:45.060
  • We know that this Melchizedekrepresents Jesus Christ and
  • 00:11:45.094 --> 00:11:49.165
  • Abraham represents us, becausewe are the seed of Abraham.
  • 00:11:49.198 --> 00:11:53.803
  • So stick with me for a fewmoments and watch what
  • 00:11:53.836 --> 00:11:56.572
  • happens here.
  • 00:11:56.605 --> 00:11:57.907
  • In Genesis chapter 14, if youlook at verse 18, we see,
  • 00:11:57.940 --> 00:12:03.045
  • "Melchizedek king of Salembrings out bread and wine."
  • 00:12:03.078 --> 00:12:08.117
  • Sounds like a communion service,doesn't it?
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:10.553
  • He brings out the breadand the wine,
  • 00:12:10.586 --> 00:12:13.155
  • and he's the king of Salem.
  • 00:12:13.189 --> 00:12:15.224
  • "He was the priest ofGod Most High."
  • 00:12:15.257 --> 00:12:17.660
  • So this man represents Jesus,and notice what he's called,
  • 00:12:17.693 --> 00:12:22.097
  • king of Salem.
  • 00:12:22.131 --> 00:12:23.432
  • Now, I don't know what you thinkof when you hear the word
  • 00:12:23.465 --> 00:12:25.000
  • "Salem," but what I think ofwhen I used to hear the word
  • 00:12:25.034 --> 00:12:27.203
  • "Salem" was a pack ofcigarettes.
  • 00:12:27.236 --> 00:12:28.771
  • How many know what I'm talkin'about?
  • 00:12:28.804 --> 00:12:33.108
  • But then I learned whatthe Bible actually means
  • 00:12:33.142 --> 00:12:36.612
  • by this word "Salem."
  • 00:12:36.645 --> 00:12:38.214
  • It is the Hebrew word "Shalom,"which means peace, the peace of
  • 00:12:38.247 --> 00:12:43.285
  • God, where nothing is missingand nothing is broken.
  • 00:12:43.319 --> 00:12:46.622
  • It's having peace with God andit's having the peace of God.
  • 00:12:46.655 --> 00:12:50.492
  • So the bread--the first miraclethat I want to share with you
  • 00:12:50.526 --> 00:12:53.963
  • here, the first miracle ofcommunion, the first miracle
  • 00:12:53.996 --> 00:12:58.267
  • that happens when we eat thebread and drink the cup, the
  • 00:12:58.300 --> 00:13:01.170
  • bread and the wine, the firstmiracle is that we activate
  • 00:13:01.203 --> 00:13:05.140
  • God's peace in our lives.
  • 00:13:05.174 --> 00:13:07.142
  • We activate God's peace, God'ssalem, or God's shalom.
  • 00:13:07.176 --> 00:13:12.448
  • We activate God's peace in ourlives, so peace enters into
  • 00:13:12.481 --> 00:13:16.552
  • the scene.
  • 00:13:16.585 --> 00:13:17.887
  • The moment we eat the bread anddrink the cup, we're releasing
  • 00:13:17.920 --> 00:13:20.589
  • God's peace in our lives.
  • 00:13:20.623 --> 00:13:21.924
  • So a miracle of peace flows.
  • 00:13:21.957 --> 00:13:23.893
  • So if your heart has beendisturbed, if your heart has
  • 00:13:23.926 --> 00:13:26.295
  • been distressed, if your hearthas been discouraged, if you're
  • 00:13:26.328 --> 00:13:30.199
  • at unrest and you're lackingpeace, we want to go back to the
  • 00:13:30.232 --> 00:13:34.336
  • death of Jesus and activate thepower of God that he paid for
  • 00:13:34.370 --> 00:13:41.043
  • through the cross.
  • 00:13:41.076 --> 00:13:42.411
  • How do we activate the power ofthe cross?
  • 00:13:42.444 --> 00:13:44.179
  • We take communion.
  • 00:13:44.213 --> 00:13:45.547
  • One of the ways is we takecommunion and what happens?
  • 00:13:45.581 --> 00:13:48.083
  • The first thing that happens ispeace flows like a river.
  • 00:13:48.117 --> 00:13:52.021
  • I know there have been timeswhere I've taken communion in
  • 00:13:52.054 --> 00:13:54.523
  • the midst of fear and confusion,in the midst of not being sure
  • 00:13:54.556 --> 00:13:58.994
  • what I'm supposed to do, in themidst of things around me and
  • 00:13:59.028 --> 00:14:02.264
  • things even in me not beingsettled, and as soon as I took
  • 00:14:02.298 --> 00:14:05.968
  • communion, a peace came over me.
  • 00:14:06.001 --> 00:14:08.737
  • What was that?
  • 00:14:08.771 --> 00:14:10.072
  • It was the King of Peaceentering in on the scene.
  • 00:14:10.105 --> 00:14:14.243
  • It was me saying, "Even though Idon't feel any peace, I'm going
  • 00:14:14.276 --> 00:14:19.014
  • to walk by faith and accept andproclaim that the cross is
  • 00:14:19.048 --> 00:14:24.119
  • enough to give me peace."
  • 00:14:24.153 --> 00:14:26.422
  • The cross is enough to give mecalm.
  • 00:14:26.455 --> 00:14:29.858
  • The cross is enough to settle medown.
  • 00:14:29.892 --> 00:14:32.561
  • The cross is enough to pacify myanger.
  • 00:14:32.594 --> 00:14:36.665
  • The cross is enough to silenceall the voices that are
  • 00:14:36.699 --> 00:14:42.271
  • telling me that I'm not gonnamake it or telling me
  • 00:14:42.304 --> 00:14:45.441
  • that God's not with me.
  • 00:14:45.474 --> 00:14:47.543
  • I have the peace of knowing thatJesus is the one that brought
  • 00:14:47.576 --> 00:14:50.279
  • the bread and the wine.
  • 00:14:50.312 --> 00:14:51.647
  • Jesus is the one that is servingme this communion.
  • 00:14:51.680 --> 00:14:54.016
  • Jesus is the one that has givenme his body and his blood.
  • 00:14:54.049 --> 00:14:56.852
  • I'm not making that happen.
  • 00:14:56.885 --> 00:14:58.387
  • He already made that happen.
  • 00:14:58.420 --> 00:14:59.822
  • I'm simply plugging in to thepower that he made happen on
  • 00:14:59.855 --> 00:15:02.624
  • the cross.
  • 00:15:02.658 --> 00:15:03.959
  • Peace, the peace of God.
  • 00:15:03.993 --> 00:15:05.794
  • The peace of God.
  • 00:15:05.828 --> 00:15:07.162
  • Secondly, notice what happensnext is this peace flows like
  • 00:15:07.196 --> 00:15:12.401
  • a river and God blesses.
  • 00:15:12.434 --> 00:15:15.938
  • Melchizedek blesses Abrahamand says, "He blessed him,"
  • 00:15:15.971 --> 00:15:20.809
  • in verse 19, "and said,'Blessed,'" and I'm--
  • 00:15:20.843 --> 00:15:23.846
  • from the Amplified Bible,it says, "Blessed
  • 00:15:23.879 --> 00:15:25.681
  • (favored with blessings,made blissful and joyful)
  • 00:15:25.714 --> 00:15:29.485
  • be Abram by God Most High,Possessor and Maker of heaven
  • 00:15:29.518 --> 00:15:33.389
  • and earth."
  • 00:15:33.422 --> 00:15:34.723
  • Boy, this is a miracle thatyou ought to cling to.
  • 00:15:34.757 --> 00:15:37.860
  • Maybe you grew up depressed.
  • 00:15:37.893 --> 00:15:39.728
  • Maybe you are a person whodoesn't--it's not easy for you
  • 00:15:39.762 --> 00:15:42.431
  • to be happy and to have joy,and it takes a lot for you
  • 00:15:42.464 --> 00:15:45.934
  • to really have this senseof bliss and joy.
  • 00:15:45.968 --> 00:15:49.772
  • Well, you know what?
  • 00:15:49.805 --> 00:15:51.106
  • You should expect starting todaywhen you take communion,
  • 00:15:51.140 --> 00:15:54.543
  • you're activating the power God.
  • 00:15:54.576 --> 00:15:56.445
  • You're plugging into the powerof joy, the power of happiness,
  • 00:15:56.478 --> 00:16:00.616
  • the power of God's blessing tomake blissful and joyful.
  • 00:16:00.649 --> 00:16:04.586
  • You see those words?
  • 00:16:04.620 --> 00:16:05.921
  • "To make blissful and joyful."
  • 00:16:05.954 --> 00:16:07.289
  • How many people in life aresearching for bliss?
  • 00:16:07.322 --> 00:16:09.491
  • They're searching for happiness.
  • 00:16:09.525 --> 00:16:11.026
  • They're searching for joy.
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:12.361
  • They're tryin' to find it inanything, anyone that they can
  • 00:16:12.394 --> 00:16:15.364
  • find it in.
  • 00:16:15.397 --> 00:16:16.732
  • And he's saying he brings thatwith him through his body and
  • 00:16:16.765 --> 00:16:20.469
  • through his blood.
  • 00:16:20.502 --> 00:16:21.804
  • He brings the joy.
  • 00:16:21.837 --> 00:16:23.172
  • He brings the bliss.
  • 00:16:23.205 --> 00:16:24.506
  • He brings the happiness.
  • 00:16:24.540 --> 00:16:25.874
  • He brings the blessing.
  • 00:16:25.908 --> 00:16:27.209
  • The second miracle of communionis the miracle of happiness, and
  • 00:16:27.242 --> 00:16:31.713
  • the blessing of God, and the joyand bliss of a relationship
  • 00:16:31.747 --> 00:16:36.051
  • with God.
  • 00:16:36.085 --> 00:16:37.419
  • God doesn't want us to bewalking around like Christianity
  • 00:16:37.453 --> 00:16:40.522
  • is a funeral procession.
  • 00:16:40.556 --> 00:16:42.157
  • God wants us to be walkin'around like Christianity is
  • 00:16:42.191 --> 00:16:44.827
  • a wedding celebration.
  • 00:16:44.860 --> 00:16:46.161
  • It's a wedding between youand the Lord.
  • 00:16:46.195 --> 00:16:48.497
  • It's a marriage between youand Jesus.
  • 00:16:48.530 --> 00:16:52.434
  • No matter how great, or howaverage, or how bad your
  • 00:16:52.468 --> 00:16:57.172
  • marriage may be, or the marriageyou grew up with at home
  • 00:16:57.206 --> 00:17:02.010
  • with your parents, or whatevermarriage you experienced,
  • 00:17:02.044 --> 00:17:05.681
  • no matter what it is, good, bad,ugly, or great, there's
  • 00:17:05.714 --> 00:17:10.285
  • something much better that Godhas for you than what you're
  • 00:17:10.319 --> 00:17:13.889
  • trying to extract from thatmarriage, and that is
  • 00:17:13.922 --> 00:17:17.292
  • the marriage bliss of beingin communion with Jesus.
  • 00:17:17.326 --> 00:17:23.499
  • The bliss, and happiness, andthe joy of being in relationship
  • 00:17:23.532 --> 00:17:28.370
  • with him, and knowing thatMelchizedek, the king of Peace,
  • 00:17:28.403 --> 00:17:31.840
  • has come to bring you the breadand the wine.
  • 00:17:31.874 --> 00:17:35.210
  • And the miracle of--The miracleof that peace and the miracle of
  • 00:17:35.244 --> 00:17:40.782
  • this happiness and joy is yours.
  • 00:17:40.816 --> 00:17:44.853
  • It's yours.
  • 00:17:44.887 --> 00:17:46.188
  • He paid for it on the cross.
  • 00:17:46.221 --> 00:17:48.390
  • Let's activate it by plugginginto the power of it
  • 00:17:48.423 --> 00:17:50.926
  • when we take communion,all right?
  • 00:17:50.959 --> 00:17:52.594
  • Number three is found inthe next verse in chapter 15,
  • 00:17:52.628 --> 00:17:57.933
  • verse 1, the next miracleof communion.
  • 00:17:57.966 --> 00:18:01.036
  • It says, "After these things theWord of the Lord came to Abram
  • 00:18:01.069 --> 00:18:03.939
  • in a vision."
  • 00:18:03.972 --> 00:18:05.274
  • After what things?
  • 00:18:05.307 --> 00:18:06.642

  • After what things?
  • 00:18:09.778 --> 00:18:11.113
  • After Abraham and Melchizedekjust took communion, after they
  • 00:18:11.146 --> 00:18:15.050
  • ate and drank the bread and thewine, "After these things the
  • 00:18:15.083 --> 00:18:19.621
  • Word of the Lord came to him ina vision."
  • 00:18:19.655 --> 00:18:21.890
  • So I want you to see that thenext miracle that's gonna happen
  • 00:18:21.924 --> 00:18:25.294
  • when you take communion is youcan expect to receive answers

  • the Word of God came to Abram."
  • 00:18:53.188 --> 00:18:55.023
  • The right Word at the right timecame on the heels of communion.
  • 00:18:55.057 --> 00:19:00.963
  • And I want to encourage you, aswe take the bread and the cup

  • God wants to give that to youthe moment you take communion.
  • 00:19:25.587 --> 00:19:28.223
  • We need to take communion andlook up, expecting peace to flow
  • 00:19:28.257 --> 00:19:32.060
  • like a river, expecting the joyand the happiness of God
  • 00:19:32.094 --> 00:19:35.797

  • God's life, God's blood is--carries his life.
  • 00:20:00.355 --> 00:20:04.092
  • When we drink this cup thatwe're about to drink together,
  • 00:20:04.126 --> 00:20:07.362
  • representing his blood,we're drinking his peace.
  • 00:20:07.396 --> 00:20:10.232

  • through his blood.
  • 00:20:22.144 --> 00:20:23.445
  • Now, I gotta read you thistestimony just to get your faith
  • 00:20:23.478 --> 00:20:26.415
  • inspired from this personwho took communion
  • 00:20:26.448 --> 00:20:28.450
  • and was miraculously healed.
  • 00:20:28.483 --> 00:20:30.452
  • They said, "Dear Pastor, I washealed from a mass on my kidney.
  • 00:20:30.485 --> 00:20:35.090
  • The doctor had literally justcalled me and told me there was
  • 00:20:35.123 --> 00:20:37.492
  • this mass on my kidney, and atthe same time you were on TV
  • 00:20:37.526 --> 00:20:40.862
  • saying, 'Take communion forwhatever your need is.'
  • 00:20:40.896 --> 00:20:44.466
  • Well, my need at the momentwas healing.
  • 00:20:44.499 --> 00:20:46.702
  • And throughout the broadcast,you indicated how we're about
  • 00:20:46.735 --> 00:20:49.071
  • to take communion together,to get the elements ready.
  • 00:20:49.104 --> 00:20:51.173
  • I ran downstairs, I got somefruit punch and some bread.
  • 00:20:51.206 --> 00:20:55.610
  • I took communion with youin faith for my healing.
  • 00:20:55.644 --> 00:20:58.347
  • When it was all said and done,I went back for the follow up
  • 00:20:58.380 --> 00:21:00.982
  • test and there was no massfound on my kidney at all!
  • 00:21:01.016 --> 00:21:04.653
  • It was completely gone!
  • 00:21:04.686 --> 00:21:07.155
  • They said the two techniciansliterally asked them,
  • 00:21:07.189 --> 00:21:09.991
  • 'Why are you even here?'
  • 00:21:10.025 --> 00:21:11.727
  • Thank God for his healing hand,and his healing power."
  • 00:21:11.760 --> 00:21:15.330
  • Now, there are so many moretestimonies just like that,
  • 00:21:15.364 --> 00:21:18.200
  • but I pray that yours is next.
  • 00:21:18.233 --> 00:21:20.736
  • We're plugging intothe power of God.
  • 00:21:20.769 --> 00:21:22.337
  • We're not creating the power,the power is already there.
  • 00:21:22.371 --> 00:21:24.373
  • Just like your electric corddoesn't create power
  • 00:21:24.406 --> 00:21:27.175
  • or electricity, the electricityis already there,
  • 00:21:27.209 --> 00:21:30.112
  • but we're tapping into it.
  • 00:21:30.145 --> 00:21:31.880
  • We're plugging into the power.
  • 00:21:31.913 --> 00:21:33.248
  • So as we get ready to takecommunion, I want to encourage
  • 00:21:33.281 --> 00:21:35.550
  • you to be expecting.
  • 00:21:35.584 --> 00:21:36.885
  • Miracles happen in an atmosphereof expectation.
  • 00:21:36.918 --> 00:21:40.322
  • We're not causing God to releasehis power.
  • 00:21:40.355 --> 00:21:42.758
  • He already has given it to us.
  • 00:21:42.791 --> 00:21:44.459
  • We're touching the hem of hisgarment and activating his power
  • 00:21:44.493 --> 00:21:47.963
  • through the body and bloodof Jesus.
  • 00:21:47.996 --> 00:21:49.631
  • And I want you to think aboutwhat your need is today.
  • 00:21:49.664 --> 00:21:52.334
  • Is it peace?
  • 00:21:52.367 --> 00:21:53.702
  • Is it favor?
  • 00:21:53.735 --> 00:21:55.036
  • Is at freedom from anxiety?
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.405
  • Is it healing?
  • 00:21:56.438 --> 00:21:57.739
  • Well, Jesus paid for it all,but I want you to activate
  • 00:21:57.773 --> 00:22:00.475
  • your faith as we take communiontogether.
  • 00:22:00.509 --> 00:22:02.811
  • That's what's gonna happen,so pray this with me and say,
  • 00:22:02.844 --> 00:22:06.415
  • as we start with the bread, Iwant you to say this and say,
  • 00:22:06.448 --> 00:22:09.818
  • "In the name of Jesus,when I take communion,
  • 00:22:09.851 --> 00:22:14.656
  • I am tapping intothe power of God.
  • 00:22:14.689 --> 00:22:16.258
  • The life of God flows throughthe blood of Jesus.
  • 00:22:16.291 --> 00:22:20.328
