  • 00:00:01.080 --> 00:00:05.200
  • Leanne Matthesius: How amazing is God,
  • 00:00:05.210 --> 00:00:08.110
  • that he does not even waste the worst moments of our life?
  • 00:00:08.120 --> 00:00:13.150
  • God is the best recycler ever.
  • 00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:16.100
  • So he says, "You can walk through the most devastating
  • 00:00:16.110 --> 00:00:19.040
  • seasons of your life, seasons of betrayal, seasons of lust,
  • 00:00:19.050 --> 00:00:24.190
  • seasons of great wounding and bitterness and anguish, but even
  • 00:00:24.200 --> 00:00:29.250
  • when you walk through those seasons, when you walk with me,
  • 00:00:29.260 --> 00:00:33.170
  • and you dwell in the house of the Lord, you can trust that I
  • 00:00:33.180 --> 00:00:36.280
  • am gonna do something so magnificent that even that
  • 00:00:36.290 --> 00:00:40.290
  • season, you're gonna look back and go, "You know what?
  • 00:00:41.000 --> 00:00:43.010
  • I found God in the midst of it."
  • 00:00:43.020 --> 00:00:45.150
  • Jurgen Matthesius: Hey, welcome back.
  • 00:00:45.160 --> 00:00:47.020
  • Pastor Jurgen Matthesius here from your Jurgen and Leanne TV,
  • 00:00:47.030 --> 00:00:49.280
  • "Empowered Living."
  • 00:00:49.290 --> 00:00:52.040
  • Man, I'm telling you, you're gonna love this message today.
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:55.210
  • The title of this message is called Fractured, Fractured.
  • 00:00:55.220 --> 00:00:59.090
  • We live in a fractured world.
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:01.220
  • And say, "Well, hang on.
  • 00:01:01.230 --> 00:01:03.140
  • When did the world get fractured?"
  • 00:01:03.150 --> 00:01:06.090
  • Genesis chapter 3, when Satan said, "Has God really said?"
  • 00:01:06.100 --> 00:01:13.010
  • At that moment, a fracture went throughout the ages,
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:16.130
  • a fracture went throughout all the wars, all the vices,
  • 00:01:16.140 --> 00:01:19.160
  • all the calamities.
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:21.030
  • Everything comes from that fracture of men doubting God.
  • 00:01:21.040 --> 00:01:24.160
  • That's why the gospel is the great answer.
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:26.270
  • The preaching of the Word of God, your heart rededicating
  • 00:01:26.280 --> 00:01:30.200
  • itself to the Word of God heals the fracture.
  • 00:01:30.210 --> 00:01:35.000
  • We want to see your life go from fractured, broken, limited,
  • 00:01:35.010 --> 00:01:38.270
  • to the place where it's operating in potential.
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:41.240
  • If I fracture my arm, it means the potential
  • 00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:44.100
  • of my arm is inhibited.
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:46.060
  • If I fracture my leg, it means my potential, the strength
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:50.060
  • of my leg, is greatly limited.
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:53.160
  • There's so many people living fractured lives because their
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:57.020
  • faith in the Word of God is limited.
  • 00:01:57.030 --> 00:01:59.250
  • Jesus says, "When I return to the earth,
  • 00:01:59.260 --> 00:02:02.050
  • will I really find faith?"
  • 00:02:02.060 --> 00:02:04.190
  • Didn't say, will I really find love?
  • 00:02:04.200 --> 00:02:06.160
  • He didn't say, will I really find compassion or grace,
  • 00:02:06.170 --> 00:02:11.010
  • he said, "Will I find faith?"
  • 00:02:11.020 --> 00:02:12.260
  • The one thing the devil attacks is faith.
  • 00:02:12.270 --> 00:02:15.180
  • So, lean in, fasten your seatbelt, get ready,
  • 00:02:15.190 --> 00:02:18.210
  • your world is about to change.
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:21.050
  • Let's watch.
  • 00:02:21.060 --> 00:02:22.200
  • Jurgen: Amen, come with me to the gospel of John,
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:24.230
  • gospel of John.
  • 00:02:24.240 --> 00:02:26.030
  • I got such a great Word tonight, such a great Word.
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:28.080
  • Gospel of John chapter 1, verses 1 to 5 is where
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:32.000
  • we're gonna be reading, gospel of John.
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:34.030
  • Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:35.250
  • Hold the horse while I get on John.
  • 00:02:35.260 --> 00:02:39.220
  • Just an easy way to remember it.
  • 00:02:39.230 --> 00:02:42.070
  • It says, "In the beginning," I love this.
  • 00:02:42.080 --> 00:02:45.030
  • The last time you see, "in the beginning," is in the very, very
  • 00:02:45.040 --> 00:02:47.110
  • opening of Scripture, Genesis 1.
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:50.000
  • In the beginning God, in Genesis 1.
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:52.010
  • Here it says, "In the beginning was the Word,
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:55.210
  • the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:03:01.230
  • Like, how awesome is that?
  • 00:03:01.240 --> 00:03:03.170
  • "In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God,
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:08.230
  • and the Word was God."
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:11.220
  • In other words, God and his Word are one in the same.
  • 00:03:11.230 --> 00:03:17.140
  • You can't tell where the Word ends and God, the Word was God.
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:22.140
  • One of the biggest struggles for us humans is keeping our word.
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:26.140
  • One of the biggest battles for me over the years has been,
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:29.150
  • you know, over promising and then struggling to--
  • 00:03:29.160 --> 00:03:33.040
  • the Bible says,
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:34.140
  • "A man is snared by the words of his mouth."
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:35.260
  • God has no problem.
  • 00:03:35.270 --> 00:03:37.060
  • In fact, the Bible says that God watches over his Word
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:39.040
  • to perform it.
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:40.140
  • God has even given you and I, the authority, the signet ring,
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:45.110
  • to have his Word in our mouth to speak it out,
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:49.190
  • to speak at his Word on his behalf.
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:53.280
  • That's what authority is.
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:56.060
  • Jesus gave the disciples authority.
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:03:58.130
  • The Bible says they came back and they said, "Man,
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:00.190
  • in your name, in your name, the demons came out."
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:04.130
  • Wow, we got some authority because God put his Word in
  • 00:04:04.140 --> 00:04:08.290
  • their mouth, and he watches over his word to perform it.
  • 00:04:09.000 --> 00:04:11.160
  • In this life, we have all kinds of contracts.
  • 00:04:11.170 --> 00:04:15.120
  • We have attorneys and lawyers, they draft up contracts.
  • 00:04:15.130 --> 00:04:19.170
  • What used to be a handshake and an exchange of words,
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:22.290
  • no longer because people, when it gets inconvenient
  • 00:04:23.000 --> 00:04:25.140
  • or difficult, they try and wriggle out of it
  • 00:04:25.150 --> 00:04:27.130
  • and so now we have contracts with caveats
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:30.160
  • and affidavits and all kinds of things.
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:33.000
  • And court cases and judges have to enforce that this person made
  • 00:04:33.010 --> 00:04:37.040
  • a commitment, made a-- entered into a contract,
  • 00:04:37.050 --> 00:04:39.190
  • and now is trying to renege and they need to follow through
  • 00:04:39.200 --> 00:04:42.010
  • even though it's gonna cost them.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:43.280
  • Not so with God.
  • 00:04:43.290 --> 00:04:45.120
  • In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:47.200
  • and the Word was God, and the Word was God.
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:50.280
  • Have a look, it keeps going.
  • 00:04:50.290 --> 00:04:52.170
  • This is so good.
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:53.270
  • "All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:59.240
  • was made that was made."
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:02.000
  • All things were made through him.
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:03.280
  • God made everything through the Word.
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:06.150
  • That means the Word is through everything.
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:08.290
  • God made everything through the Word, that means the Word
  • 00:05:09.000 --> 00:05:11.080
  • is through everything.
  • 00:05:11.090 --> 00:05:12.260
  • That's why Jesus could stand on a boat and say,
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:14.140
  • "Peace, be still."
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:15.280
  • And immediately the wind and the waves obey him, why?
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:17.210
  • Because it was all created through the Word.
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:21.160
  • It was all created through the Word so when the wind and the
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:24.140
  • waves heard the Word, they recognized that is the very word
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:28.020
  • that fashioned us, that is the very word that gave birth to us.
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:31.130
  • Yes, and it obeyed straightaway.
  • 00:05:31.140 --> 00:05:33.210
  • Jesus says to a fig tree, "Let no one ever eat fruit
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:35.200
  • from you again.
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:37.090
  • You violated the Word, and you lose your right to stand there
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:40.030
  • bragging, look at me, I've got all these leaves, but no fruit.
  • 00:05:40.040 --> 00:05:43.040
  • Let no one ever eat fruit from you again."
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:45.000
  • The whole of creation obeys his Word.
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:47.140
  • The whole of creation obeys his Word.
  • 00:05:47.150 --> 00:05:50.000
  • And the Bible says that, this is my favorite part, verse 4,
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:53.100
  • "In him, the Word, in him was what?
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:59.070
  • In him was life.
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:02.050
  • If you are underscoring anything, underscore that,
  • 00:06:02.060 --> 00:06:04.210
  • in him was life and that life was the light of men.
  • 00:06:04.220 --> 00:06:13.010
  • In him was life, in the Word was life.
  • 00:06:13.020 --> 00:06:17.100
  • Jesus everywhere he went, I'm not sure if you saw this,
  • 00:06:17.110 --> 00:06:19.290
  • Jesus is the Word.
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:21.230
  • Everywhere Jesus went, in him was life.
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:24.180
  • The woman with an issue of blood touches him, in him was life.
  • 00:06:24.190 --> 00:06:28.070
  • In him was life.
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:29.220
  • The priests of the Old Testament,
  • 00:06:29.230 --> 00:06:32.200
  • they weren't allowed to go where the dead were.
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:34.140
  • They weren't allowed to be in contact with a corpse.
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:38.180
  • If someone had leprosy, they had to cross over and walk on the
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:41.280
  • other side of the street.
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:43.270
  • But a leper comes kneeling before Jesus and says,
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:46.050
  • "Lord, if you're willing, you can make me clean."
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:48.150
  • Even though Jesus is the Word, he could have sent the Word
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:51.010
  • and cleansed him.
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:52.180
  • But the Bible says Jesus goes an extra step.
  • 00:06:52.190 --> 00:06:54.150
  • He reaches forward and touches him.
  • 00:06:54.160 --> 00:06:57.140
  • He touches him because in him was life.
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:07:01.260
  • An Old Testament priest, by touching the leper,
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:04.230
  • the priest becomes unclean.
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:06.140
  • The leper of the leprosy, the sin of the sinner overtakes,
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:09.290
  • but not Jesus.
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:11.140
  • In him was life.
  • 00:07:11.150 --> 00:07:12.240
  • In him, he was life overflowing.
  • 00:07:12.250 --> 00:07:14.130
  • He's the fountain of life, and that life is the light of men.
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:21.100
  • And the light shines in the darkness,
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:23.230
  • and the darkness did not comprehend it.
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:26.120
  • Another translation, the N.I.V. says,
  • 00:07:26.130 --> 00:07:28.080
  • "And the darkness did not overcome it."
  • 00:07:28.090 --> 00:07:31.110
  • Then if you go to Genesis 3, verse 1 it says,
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:34.130
  • "Now the beast was more cunning than any beast of the field
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:37.230
  • which the Lord God had made.
  • 00:07:37.240 --> 00:07:39.220
  • And he said to the woman, 'Has God really said?
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:43.160
  • Has God indeed said, You shall not eat of every tree
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:46.260
  • of the garden?'"
  • 00:07:46.270 --> 00:07:48.180
  • The title of my message tonight is Fractured.
  • 00:07:48.190 --> 00:07:52.030
  • The title of my message tonight is Fractured, Fractured.
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:55.290
  • I want to put to you tonight that you and I
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:58.030
  • live in a fractured universe.
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:00.290
  • You and I live in a fractured world.
  • 00:08:01.000 --> 00:08:03.190
  • When something is fractured, it means that it loses its
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:06.080
  • potential for a season.
  • 00:08:06.090 --> 00:08:09.020
  • If you fracture your arm, the strength of that arm
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:12.240
  • is put on hold for a season.
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.290
  • If you fracture your foot, if you fracture your leg,
  • 00:08:15.000 --> 00:08:17.110
  • you can't run, you can't bear a weight load
  • 00:08:17.120 --> 00:08:21.020
  • because the fracture renders it.
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:23.070
  • We live in a world where the world of God, the Word of God
  • 00:08:23.080 --> 00:08:26.210
  • that dispenses life, and that life is the light of man that's
  • 00:08:26.220 --> 00:08:30.050
  • being fractured because Adam and Eve leaned into Satan's trap.
  • 00:08:30.060 --> 00:08:38.200
  • "Has God indeed, can you really trust what God says?
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:41.100
  • This is remarkable to me because if you read Genesis 1, God says,
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:46.200
  • "Let there be light," light was.
  • 00:08:46.210 --> 00:08:50.060
  • Now, you need to understand if you read your Bible,
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:51.250
  • which I encourage, it's not until the fourth day
  • 00:08:51.260 --> 00:08:56.140
  • that God creates the sun.
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:59.290
  • But God in Genesis 1, verse 3, four days before the sun, says,
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:05.120
  • "Let there be light," light was.
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:08.060
  • God didn't need the sun for there to be light.
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:10.290
  • God didn't need the sun for there to be light.
  • 00:09:11.290 --> 00:09:14.150
  • God doesn't need the best physician for you to be healed.
  • 00:09:14.160 --> 00:09:18.170
  • God doesn't need the market to change for you to prosper.
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:22.130
  • God doesn't need circumstances to change you to buy a home
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:25.160
  • in San Diego.
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:28.010
  • God's Word has enough power.
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:30.030
  • Whenever God sends out his Word, each word contains
  • 00:09:30.040 --> 00:09:32.150
  • the power of God.
  • 00:09:32.160 --> 00:09:34.090
  • Each word is filled, is impregnated with what the Bible
  • 00:09:34.100 --> 00:09:38.010
  • says that God, when he sends out his Word,
  • 00:09:38.020 --> 00:09:40.040
  • it never returns to him void.
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:41.240
  • It always accomplishes that for which it is sent forth.
  • 00:09:41.250 --> 00:09:44.060
  • The Word has power, the Word of God has power,
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:47.110
  • has life-giving power, has life-generating power.
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:50.170
  • The Bible says that God said, "Let there be light,"
  • 00:09:50.180 --> 00:09:52.180
  • and light was.
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:54.100
  • Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the heaven,"
  • 00:09:54.110 --> 00:09:56.150
  • and it was so.
  • 00:09:56.160 --> 00:09:57.250
  • Then God said, "Let dry land appear,"
  • 00:09:57.260 --> 00:09:59.050
  • and the dry land appeared.
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:00.170
  • And then God said, and it was so.
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:02.020
  • And then God said, and it was so.
  • 00:10:02.050 --> 00:10:03.140
  • And then God said, and it was so.
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:05.110
  • And then God said, and it was so.
  • 00:10:05.140 --> 00:10:07.080
  • And then God said, "Let us make man in our image,"
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:09.090
  • and in his image-- everything God said,
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:11.050
  • everything God said had a 100% track record.
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:14.120
  • He said it and it was so. He said it and it was so.
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:17.170
  • So, the enemy comes in, he knows if all of a sudden you, as the
  • 00:10:17.180 --> 00:10:22.160
  • vice-regent of God walking around on this earth
  • 00:10:22.170 --> 00:10:25.290
  • with his Word in your mouth, it's game over for him.
  • 00:10:26.000 --> 00:10:29.240
  • So, his agenda is to fracture.
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:33.230
  • The way that he fractures is he gets you to doubt
  • 00:10:33.240 --> 00:10:36.080
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:10:36.090 --> 00:10:38.050
  • That's why Proverbs 3:5 says,
  • 00:10:38.060 --> 00:10:39.230
  • "Lean not on your own understanding."
  • 00:10:39.240 --> 00:10:42.050
  • But we live in an education system that hates
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:44.200
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:10:44.210 --> 00:10:46.220
  • The devil don't want the Word of God in our schools.
  • 00:10:46.230 --> 00:10:50.000
  • The devil doesn't want the Word of God taught in our classrooms.
  • 00:10:50.010 --> 00:10:52.280
  • The Founding Fathers, the Founding Fathers said
  • 00:10:52.290 --> 00:10:56.130
  • that the one textbook that is a must, that is an essential,
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:11:01.070
  • is the Bible.
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:03.290
  • Don't listen to the revisionists who try and pretend that the
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:06.220
  • Founding Fathers weren't men of faith.
  • 00:11:06.230 --> 00:11:09.270
  • Twenty-seven of the fifty-five signers of the Declaration
  • 00:11:09.280 --> 00:11:14.000
  • of Independence were clergy.
  • 00:11:14.010 --> 00:11:17.150
  • They weren't just Christians, they were pastors.
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:21.070
  • Almost half, 27 out of 55, 51 out of 55 were followers
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:27.170
  • of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:11:27.180 --> 00:11:30.290
  • The Founding Fathers even says this constitution
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:34.010
  • is for a religious people.
  • 00:11:34.020 --> 00:11:36.130
  • It doesn't work for a non-religious people.
  • 00:11:36.140 --> 00:11:38.270
  • In fact, George Washington said that.
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:41.080
  • No wonder the devil is trying to dismantle the greatness
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:44.100
  • of the United States of America.
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:46.170
  • He's trying to get rid of the Bible out of schools.
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:48.220
  • He's trying to get rid of the Bible out of colleges.
  • 00:11:48.230 --> 00:11:50.170
  • He's trying to get rid of the Bible out of the court rooms.
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:52.050
  • Well, how's that working for you?
  • 00:11:52.060 --> 00:11:54.060
  • How's that working for you?
  • 00:11:54.070 --> 00:11:55.220
  • We've got more people on antidepressants
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:57.090
  • than ever before.
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:58.240
  • We got more people who are struggling
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:00.190
  • with addictions than ever before.
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:02.130
  • We got more people with suicidal issues than ever before.
  • 00:12:02.140 --> 00:12:06.000
  • We got more marriages ending in divorce than ever before.
  • 00:12:06.010 --> 00:12:09.010
  • How's that working for you, world, that has retracted itself
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:12.260
  • from the Word of God, that is made illegal the Word of God?
  • 00:12:12.270 --> 00:12:15.180
  • You can teach Buddhism, you can teach Confucianism, you can
  • 00:12:15.190 --> 00:12:18.050
  • teach Islam, you can teach everything else in our schools
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:20.190
  • except for the Word of God, except for Christianity, why?
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:23.100
  • Because the Bible says, "In the beginning was the Word
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:25.220
  • and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,"
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:28.020
  • and that word has life and that life is the light of men.
  • 00:12:28.030 --> 00:12:33.280
  • See, the devil doesn't want people to have life,
  • 00:12:33.290 --> 00:12:36.270
  • but not only does he not want them to have life,
  • 00:12:36.280 --> 00:12:38.200
  • he wants them to stumble in the darkness.
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:41.160
  • When you find people come into this house, we made a decision,
  • 00:12:41.170 --> 00:12:45.230
  • we ain't watering down the Word of God.
  • 00:12:45.240 --> 00:12:48.190
  • We ain't changing the Word of God.
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:50.020
  • We ain't meddling with it.
  • 00:12:50.030 --> 00:12:51.160
  • I didn't write it, so I don't get to change it.
  • 00:12:51.170 --> 00:12:55.180
  • I didn't write it, so I do not have the authority to change it.
  • 00:12:55.190 --> 00:13:00.030
  • It's what God said. It's what God said.
  • 00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:03.180
  • "Well, well, you know, pastor, you just need to keep up
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:06.140
  • with the times.
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:09.250
  • The Bible says some like sex before--"
  • 00:13:09.260 --> 00:13:13.050
  • The Bible says it for a reason.
  • 00:13:13.060 --> 00:13:15.220
  • I'm not gonna water down the Bible to a sinful generation.
  • 00:13:15.230 --> 00:13:19.250
  • I ain't gonna try and water down the Scriptures.
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:22.120
  • Even Jesus said, and this is 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:24.280
  • "O faithless and perverse generation,
  • 00:13:24.290 --> 00:13:27.280
  • how long shall I be with you?
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:29.140
  • How long shall I bear with you?
  • 00:13:29.150 --> 00:13:31.080
  • Bring the boy to me."
  • 00:13:31.090 --> 00:13:32.290
  • Why was he saying that?
  • 00:13:33.000 --> 00:13:34.100
  • Because his disciples who were mixing with the community
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:36.270
  • could no longer cast out demons.
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:40.080
  • And Jesus says, "Bring the child to me.
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:42.270
  • Faithless and perverse, how long will, how long?
  • 00:13:42.280 --> 00:13:45.190
  • Bring the child to me."
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:47.120
  • And immediately, Jesus cast it out.
  • 00:13:47.130 --> 00:13:49.110
  • And the disciples said, "How come we couldn't cast it out?
  • 00:13:49.120 --> 00:13:51.240
  • Seven chapters earlier in Matthew 10,
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:53.210
  • you gave us authority.
  • 00:13:53.220 --> 00:13:55.080
  • Matthew 11, we come back rejoicing the demons
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:56.280
  • submit to us in your name.
  • 00:13:56.290 --> 00:13:58.160
  • Now Matthew 17, we can't do jack.
  • 00:13:58.170 --> 00:14:02.220
  • How come we can't cast it out?"
  • 00:14:02.230 --> 00:14:04.190
  • And Jesus says, "Because of your unbelief."
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:07.130
  • In other words, in a faithless and perverse generation,
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:10.150
  • if you get infected, you lose your effectiveness.
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:16.260
  • If you get infected by the spirit of this world,
  • 00:14:16.270 --> 00:14:19.110
  • you will lose your effectiveness.
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:21.150
  • We made a decision we ain't gonna be
  • 00:14:21.160 --> 00:14:23.020
  • an attendance church on Sunday.
  • 00:14:23.030 --> 00:14:26.150
  • We ain't gonna be the best show in town on a Sunday.
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:29.190
  • We're gonna be a discipleship church.
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:31.270
  • We're gonna be a church that makes disciples.
  • 00:14:31.280 --> 00:14:33.190
  • We're gonna be a church that is unafraid and unashamed
  • 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:35.290
  • of the power of the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:14:36.000 --> 00:14:37.250
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:40.030
  • We're gonna be a church that baptizes people
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:42.270
  • in the Holy Spirit with the power of God
  • 00:14:42.280 --> 00:14:45.250
  • because we have a generation outside these doors.
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:48.270
  • We have a generation in this city that have been bound
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:52.100
  • by the devil, that have been gripped by the devil.
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.170
  • The got all kinds of addictions and chains, and we need a church
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:57.160
  • with some power, not programs.
  • 00:14:57.170 --> 00:15:00.160
  • We don't need more programs, we need more power in the church.
  • 00:15:00.170 --> 00:15:05.230
  • So, the devil don't like the Word of God
  • 00:15:05.240 --> 00:15:07.130
  • because in the Word is life, and that light is the light of men.
  • 00:15:07.140 --> 00:15:11.140
  • Proverbs 14:12 says, "There is a way that seems right to a man,
  • 00:15:11.150 --> 00:15:16.270
  • but in the end it leads to death.
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:19.260
  • So, the enemy will use all kinds of sleight of hand.
  • 00:15:19.270 --> 00:15:24.060
  • They use all kinds of magic tricks to say,
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:26.070
  • "Hey, look, here's life.
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:27.290
  • Shoot this into your veins.
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.260
  • It will give you euphoric high, but no life.
  • 00:15:29.270 --> 00:15:33.110
  • Sleep with this, jump into that, do this,
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:35.180
  • drink that, snort that, go here."
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:38.210
  • It's--there's a way that seems right but in the end,
  • 00:15:38.220 --> 00:15:42.120
  • it leads to death.
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:44.050
  • But the Bible says about the Word of God,
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:46.040
  • in the Word of God was life, in the Word was life
  • 00:15:46.050 --> 00:15:50.210
  • and that life is the light of men.
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:53.100
  • I love when we have testimonies of people that were just given
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:56.270
  • months to live and then the power of God, they hear the Word
  • 00:15:56.280 --> 00:15:59.240
  • of God, faith rises, and all the sudden they get healed.
  • 00:15:59.250 --> 00:16:03.130
  • What happens when they get healed?
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:04.290
  • They don't just find life, that life becomes the light.
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:08.130
  • People begin to say, "Oh, my gosh, well, if God did it
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:10.190
  • for them, maybe they can do it for me.
  • 00:16:10.200 --> 00:16:13.050
  • If God did for them, maybe God can do it for me.
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:15.100
  • If God can heal them, maybe he can save my marriage, maybe he
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:18.160
  • can save my son, maybe he can save my daughter."
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:21.050
  • That life is the light of man.
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:23.260
  • The devil don't want there to be life
  • 00:16:23.270 --> 00:16:25.260
  • because he doesn't want there to be a light in our city.
  • 00:16:25.270 --> 00:16:28.210
  • He doesn't mind church programs.
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:30.080
  • He just doesn't want a church with power.
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:32.230
  • You need to understand something, that God,
  • 00:16:32.240 --> 00:16:36.120
  • God's power hovers all over the earth.
  • 00:16:36.130 --> 00:16:38.270
  • God's power flows over the earth and like a lightning rod,
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:42.280
  • it's faith that attracts the power of God.
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:45.280
  • Faith attracts the power of God.
  • 00:16:45.290 --> 00:16:48.030
  • The Bible teaches--haven't got to point one yet,
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:49.200
  • so just bear with me.
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:54.070
  • Faith attracts the power of God.
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:57.290
  • We want to believe that need attracts the power of God.
  • 00:16:58.000 --> 00:17:02.190
  • Need absolutely moves the heart of God, but it's faith that
  • 00:17:02.200 --> 00:17:06.040
  • attracts the heart of God, the power of God.
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:08.290
  • How do I get faith? I'm glad you asked.
  • 00:17:09.000 --> 00:17:12.010
  • Romans 10:17 says, "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:15.160
  • by the Word of God."
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:17.090
  • In Matthew chapter 5, a woman with an issue of blood
  • 00:17:17.100 --> 00:17:20.010
  • 12 years bleeding, non-stop, non-stop,
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:23.040
  • she cannot stop bleeding.
  • 00:17:23.050 --> 00:17:25.030
  • She's anemic. She's weak.
  • 00:17:25.040 --> 00:17:26.240
  • The Bible says she spent all her wealth, all her livelihood on
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:30.140
  • physicians, and she suffered so much at the experiments
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:34.070
  • and the things that they tried to do to stop her bleeding.
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:37.100
  • But watch this, the Bible says,
  • 00:17:37.110 --> 00:17:39.130
  • "But when she heard about Jesus."
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:42.100
  • How does faith come?
  • 00:17:42.110 --> 00:17:44.040
  • Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
  • 00:17:44.050 --> 00:17:46.110
  • Who is Jesus?
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:47.290
  • He's the Word.
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:49.150
  • When she heard about Jesus, watch this, when she heard about
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:51.220
  • Jesus, faith rose in her heart.
  • 00:17:51.230 --> 00:17:53.120
  • How'd you know faith rose in her heart, pastor?"
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:55.040
  • Because her confession changed.
  • 00:17:55.050 --> 00:17:57.120
  • Her confession changed.
  • 00:17:57.130 --> 00:17:58.220
  • When she heard about Jesus, she said within herself,
  • 00:17:58.230 --> 00:18:02.210
  • "If only, if only I may touch the hem of his garment,
  • 00:18:02.220 --> 00:18:06.250
  • I shall be made whole."
  • 00:18:06.260 --> 00:18:08.250
  • The Bible says the crowd was thronging Jesus.
  • 00:18:08.260 --> 00:18:10.260
  • He's on his way to Jairus's house to pray for Jairus's
  • 00:18:10.270 --> 00:18:14.040
  • 12-year-old daughter, and on the way all of a sudden he stops,
  • 00:18:14.050 --> 00:18:18.120
  • and the disciples are all around him trying to keep the crowd
  • 00:18:18.130 --> 00:18:21.170
  • at bay and everyone's jostling.
  • 00:18:21.180 --> 00:18:23.090
  • Everyone's cheering.
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.230
  • And Jesus says, "Who touched me?"
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.120
  • And the disciples are like, "What are you talking about?
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:28.010
  • Everyone is thronging you."
  • 00:18:28.020 --> 00:18:29.270
  • He says, "I'm not talking about thronging,
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:31.160
  • somebody touched me."
  • 00:18:31.170 --> 00:18:33.150
  • Watch this, "Somebody touched me because I felt power go
  • 00:18:33.160 --> 00:18:36.200
  • out of me."
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:38.190
  • The Bible says the woman comes trembling, realizing it cannot
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:41.270
  • be hidden, and she comes trembling, kneeling before him.
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:45.030
  • And she testified how at the very second, the very moment
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:47.220
  • that she touched the hem of Jesus's garment,
  • 00:18:47.230 --> 00:18:50.120
  • power came into her and she was healed.
  • 00:18:50.130 --> 00:18:53.010
  • Watch what Jesus does.
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:54.200
  • Jesus says, "O daughter, your faith has made you whole.
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:18:58.080
  • Your faith has made you whole."
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:19:00.040
  • Now, all right, let's have a look really,
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:04.050
  • 'cause she had faith before she touched you, Jesus.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:08.290
  • She wasn't healed before she touched you.
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:11.240
  • Jesus, in a court of law on further examination,
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:17.100
  • it wasn't actually--it was actually the power of God.
  • 00:19:17.110 --> 00:19:20.030
  • It was actually the power.
  • 00:19:20.040 --> 00:19:22.030
  • It was actually the life inside of you flowing into her
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:25.110
  • that healed her.
  • 00:19:25.120 --> 00:19:26.290
  • Jesus is like, "I know that.
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:28.230
  • I know that.
  • 00:19:28.240 --> 00:19:30.060
  • But you know why my power flowed into her and nobody else
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:32.290
  • who was bumping against me?
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:35.050
  • Because they were thronging, she was touching
  • 00:19:35.060 --> 00:19:36.270
  • because she had faith."
  • 00:19:36.280 --> 00:19:38.290
  • And I want to just highlight right now, I want to highlight
  • 00:19:39.000 --> 00:19:41.240
  • right now, "Daughter, your faith has made you whole."
  • 00:19:41.250 --> 00:19:46.090
  • Because right now Jairus needs to see that this distraction
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:50.270
  • did not rob him.
  • 00:19:50.280 --> 00:19:52.230
  • No sooner has he finished dealing with this that someone
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:55.220
  • comes from the ruler of the synagogue's house
  • 00:19:55.230 --> 00:19:57.290
  • and says to him, "Your daughter died.
  • 00:19:58.000 --> 00:20:00.210
  • Your daughter expired, she passed away,
  • 00:20:00.220 --> 00:20:02.270
  • she breathed her last.
  • 00:20:02.280 --> 00:20:05.210
  • There's no breath. There's no pulse.
  • 00:20:05.220 --> 00:20:08.230
  • There's no heartbeat. Your daughter is dead.
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:11.250
  • Why bother the teacher anymore?"
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:14.100
  • Jesus grabs him.
  • 00:20:14.110 --> 00:20:17.010
  • Now, how many people know that Jesus was a great teacher?
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:20.000
  • But don't you dare limit him.
  • 00:20:20.010 --> 00:20:22.010
  • Don't you dare reduce him to being just a teacher.
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:24.270
  • Jesus said, "Yes, I do teach, but I'm more than a teacher.
  • 00:20:24.280 --> 00:20:28.110
  • I am the Word and in the Word was life, and that life
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:32.140
  • is the light of men."
  • 00:20:32.150 --> 00:20:34.150
  • You just saw this woman I said,
  • 00:20:34.160 --> 00:20:36.120
  • "Your faith has made you whole."
  • 00:20:36.130 --> 00:20:38.120
  • And he says to this man, he says,
  • 00:20:38.130 --> 00:20:40.010
  • "Do not be afraid, only believe.
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:43.290
  • Do not be afraid, only believe."
  • 00:20:44.000 --> 00:20:46.100
  • Last week I preached about Martha when Jesus came
  • 00:20:46.110 --> 00:20:49.090
  • to the tomb and Lazarus was dead.
  • 00:20:49.100 --> 00:20:52.280
  • And he'd been dead for four days.
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:54.240
  • And when Jesus turns up, she's like,
  • 00:20:54.250 --> 00:20:57.120
  • "Where were you on this one?
  • 00:20:57.130 --> 00:20:59.190
  • If you would have been here, didn't you get the memo?
  • 00:20:59.200 --> 00:21:02.020
  • Like we sent a memo.
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.160
  • Lord, the one whom you love," underscore, like we highlighted
  • 00:21:03.170 --> 00:21:07.060
  • the word, "you loved."
  • 00:21:07.070 --> 00:21:09.120
  • The one who you love is sick.
  • 00:21:09.130 --> 00:21:12.170
  • Like in other words, "Hello, come immediately.
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:16.010
  • We thought you'd drop everything."
  • 00:21:16.020 --> 00:21:17.270
  • And Jesus is like, "Sweetie, I was on assignment.
  • 00:21:17.280 --> 00:21:21.160
  • I was--"
  • 00:21:21.170 --> 00:21:22.290
  • She's like, "Yeah, well while you were on this God assignment,
  • 00:21:23.000 --> 00:21:25.000
  • the one whom you love died.
  • 00:21:25.010 --> 00:21:27.120
  • How's that make you feel?"
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:31.200
  • But you need to understand that Jesus, even though
  • 00:21:31.210 --> 00:21:33.230
  • geographically the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:37.250
  • he was in one place at one time, Jesus the person.
  • 00:21:37.260 --> 00:21:42.060
  • So, watch what Jesus does, he knows he can't attend.
  • 00:21:42.070 --> 00:21:44.270
  • He knows he's on assignment in this particular city,
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:48.030
  • this particular village.
  • 00:21:48.040 --> 00:21:49.290
  • So, watch what Jesus does.
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:51.170
  • He says, "This sickness will not end in death.
  • 00:21:51.180 --> 00:21:55.290
  • So obviously, if you look at it, the disciples would say,
  • 00:21:56.000 --> 00:21:59.270
  • "You kind of got that one wrong.
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:02.210
  • He's right most of the time, just got this one wrong,
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:06.120
  • but nobody's perfect."
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:08.140
  • I don't know, Jesus never said he'd never die.
  • 00:22:08.150 --> 00:22:12.110
  • Nowhere did Jesus say he wouldn't die.
  • 00:22:12.120 --> 00:22:14.040
  • Jesus said he just wouldn't end there,
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:16.170
  • because Jesus is the author and the finisher.
  • 00:22:16.180 --> 00:22:21.120
  • Jurgen: Wow.
  • 00:22:21.290 --> 00:22:23.100
  • Well, unfortunately once again, our time has just flown by.
  • 00:22:23.110 --> 00:22:27.140
  • But you saw in that message there how powerful it is when we
  • 00:22:27.150 --> 00:22:32.060
  • begin to lean into the Word of God, when we begin to elevate
  • 00:22:32.070 --> 00:22:35.140
  • again the Word of God above the voices of the world.
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:40.070
  • Don't let the devil have the final say.
  • 00:22:40.080 --> 00:22:42.050
  • Don't let the devil dictate.
  • 00:22:42.060 --> 00:22:43.260
  • Let the Word of God be preeminent.
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:46.230
  • God always watches over his Word to perform it.
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:49.220
  • His Word never returns to him void,
  • 00:22:49.230 --> 00:22:51.200
  • but always accomplishes that for which he sends it out.
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:54.290
  • I know that as you put your faith in the Word of God, begin
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:58.170
  • to rehearse and speak the Word of God, declare the Word of God,
  • 00:22:58.180 --> 00:23:01.240
  • release it over your circumstances.
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:03.240
  • You're gonna find God-sized results coming to pass.
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:07.240
  • Your breakthrough, your miracle, your healing, your deliverance,
  • 00:23:07.250 --> 00:23:12.060
  • your salvation is imminent and it's all there
  • 00:23:12.070 --> 00:23:15.190
  • in the Word of God.
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:17.100
  • What a joy to be with you today.
  • 00:23:17.110 --> 00:23:19.020
  • But listen, I want to take a moment to pray with you.
  • 00:23:19.030 --> 00:23:21.280
  • Maybe you've never surrendered, maybe you once gave
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:24.100
  • it your way, or maybe you're just like,
  • 00:23:24.110 --> 00:23:26.110
  • "Hey, I really need some prayer today.
  • 00:23:26.120 --> 00:23:28.180
  • I really need a breakthrough and a miracle today."
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:30.280
  • If that's you, would you just close your eyes
  • 00:23:30.290 --> 00:23:32.180
  • where you are right now?
  • 00:23:32.190 --> 00:23:34.060
  • Open your heart and say these words with me out loud.
  • 00:23:34.070 --> 00:23:37.060
  • Say "Dear Heavenly Father, I want to thank you
  • 00:23:37.070 --> 00:23:42.100
  • that you so love me, you sent Jesus Christ
  • 00:23:42.110 --> 00:23:47.110
  • on a rescue mission to save my life.
  • 00:23:47.120 --> 00:23:51.200
  • Lord Jesus, thank you that you came to heal what was fractured.
  • 00:23:51.210 --> 00:23:58.130
  • Today I declare everything's been fractured by fear, doubt,
  • 00:23:58.140 --> 00:24:05.200
  • unbelief, sin, negativity is now being healed
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:11.220
  • because of the Word of God.
  • 00:24:11.230 --> 00:24:13.230
  • I declare breakthrough, salvation, cleansing,
  • 00:24:13.240 --> 00:24:20.000
  • deliverance.
  • 00:24:20.010 --> 00:24:21.270
  • Renewal is my portion in Christ.
  • 00:24:21.280 --> 00:24:26.170
  • In Jesus's name, amen.
  • 00:24:26.180 --> 00:24:29.070
  • Friend, Jesus died for you on the cross, hung on that
  • 00:24:29.080 --> 00:24:32.030
  • cross, the place of exchange because he took our sin.
  • 00:24:32.040 --> 00:24:36.050
  • He took our fracture so that we could have health, healing,
  • 00:24:36.060 --> 00:24:39.190
  • salvation, deliverance.
  • 00:24:39.200 --> 00:24:41.070
  • He's so amazing.
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:42.250
