  • Creflo Dollar: Stopcondemning people.
  • 00:00:08.688 --> 00:00:10.824
  • If God's not condemning you,you stop condemning people.
  • 00:00:10.857 --> 00:00:13.726
  • Let me say it like this.
  • 00:00:13.760 --> 00:00:15.061
  • If God can give you a secondchance, quit holding stuff
  • 00:00:15.095 --> 00:00:20.834
  • against people thathappened a year ago.
  • 00:00:20.867 --> 00:00:23.770
  • Are you understandingwhat--'cause God's
  • 00:00:23.803 --> 00:00:25.105
  • not holding it against you.
  • 00:00:25.138 --> 00:00:26.439
  • If you were to go to God, say,
  • 00:00:26.473 --> 00:00:27.774
  • "God, remember whatI did last week?"
  • 00:00:27.807 --> 00:00:29.109
  • He would say, "Wait, wait.We don't have this on record."
  • 00:00:29.142 --> 00:00:30.443
  • Why?
  • 00:00:30.477 --> 00:00:31.778
  • Because he took your sinsand he cast them as far
  • 00:00:31.811 --> 00:00:33.113
  • as the east is in the west.
  • 00:00:33.146 --> 00:00:34.447
  • And then when it finallylanded, it landed in the sea of
  • 00:00:34.481 --> 00:00:36.116
  • forgetfulness where heremembers it no more.
  • 00:00:36.149 --> 00:00:38.151
  • Who do you think you arethis Christmas bringing up
  • 00:00:38.184 --> 00:00:40.653
  • what somebody didlast Christmas?
  • 00:00:40.687 --> 00:00:42.589
  • Let that junk go.It ain't worth it.
  • 00:00:42.622 --> 00:00:44.757
  • Your love isgoing to be greater.
  • 00:00:44.791 --> 00:00:47.460
  • Your love is going to begreater than your condemnation.
  • 00:00:47.494 --> 00:00:50.029
  • Your love is going to begreater than your hurt.
  • 00:00:50.063 --> 00:00:52.132
  • It's going to begreater than your pain.
  • 00:00:52.165 --> 00:00:53.867
  • Quit walking around hurt.Quit walking around depressed.
  • 00:00:53.900 --> 00:00:56.469
  • Quit walking around sad.
  • 00:00:56.503 --> 00:00:58.271

  • Creflo: Matthew chapter 1,verse 21.
  • 00:06:57.463 --> 00:07:01.100
  • I just want to share realquickly ten reasons
  • 00:07:01.133 --> 00:07:05.137
  • why Jesus was born.
  • 00:07:05.171 --> 00:07:07.573
  • Now, this title may change.
  • 00:07:07.607 --> 00:07:08.908
  • It might be five reasons whyhe was born, but I want you
  • 00:07:08.941 --> 00:07:14.413
  • to understand that this goesso much farther than
  • 00:07:14.447 --> 00:07:18.251
  • the tradition that theworld has created.
  • 00:07:18.284 --> 00:07:21.087
  • It's so much bigger than, youknow, the traditions even we've
  • 00:07:21.120 --> 00:07:25.124
  • set up in our lives, and peoplehave the different beliefs.
  • 00:07:25.157 --> 00:07:28.561
  • But I think about the numberof millions of people around
  • 00:07:28.594 --> 00:07:32.832
  • the world who arecelebrating this day
  • 00:07:32.865 --> 00:07:36.402
  • and they don't evenbelieve in Jesus.
  • 00:07:36.435 --> 00:07:40.706
  • Think of that.
  • 00:07:40.740 --> 00:07:42.375
  • It's been reduced down to thetraditions that they have made,
  • 00:07:42.408 --> 00:07:47.179
  • and the Bible says, "Yourtraditions have made
  • 00:07:47.213 --> 00:07:49.115
  • the Word of God of no effect."
  • 00:07:49.148 --> 00:07:51.717
  • So real quickly I want you totake a list of the reasons
  • 00:07:51.751 --> 00:07:56.355
  • why Jesus was born.
  • 00:07:56.389 --> 00:07:59.025
  • Number one, to saveus from our sins.
  • 00:07:59.058 --> 00:08:03.095
  • Matthew 1:21 he says, "Andshe shall bring forth a son.
  • 00:08:03.129 --> 00:08:07.500
  • Thou shalt call his name Jesus,for he shall save
  • 00:08:07.533 --> 00:08:09.869
  • his people from their sins."
  • 00:08:09.902 --> 00:08:12.371
  • So if Jesus was neverborn again, think of it.
  • 00:08:12.405 --> 00:08:15.174
  • We would not have thesalvation from our sins.
  • 00:08:15.207 --> 00:08:18.377
  • If you look in the book of Johnchapter 1 and verse 29,
  • 00:08:18.411 --> 00:08:22.114
  • it's not that he just, youknow, made salvation available
  • 00:08:22.148 --> 00:08:25.384
  • to people who are at churchtoday, but he's made
  • 00:08:25.418 --> 00:08:27.987
  • salvation availableto the whole world.
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:30.990
  • Think of this.
  • 00:08:31.023 --> 00:08:32.825
  • If a person were to die and goto hell, they will only discover
  • 00:08:32.858 --> 00:08:38.998
  • that salvation wasavailable to them.
  • 00:08:39.031 --> 00:08:40.967
  • All they had to do wassign for the package.
  • 00:08:41.000 --> 00:08:43.502
  • Look at St. Johnchapter 1 and verse 29.
  • 00:08:43.536 --> 00:08:46.772
  • And in St. John chapter 1, verse29 he says, "The next day John
  • 00:08:46.806 --> 00:08:51.344
  • seeth Jesus cometh unto himand saith,
  • 00:08:51.377 --> 00:08:53.646
  • 'Behold, the Lamb of God,which taketh away
  • 00:08:53.679 --> 00:08:57.350
  • the sin of the whole world.'"
  • 00:08:57.383 --> 00:09:00.486
  • So Jesus has taken away yoursins, past, present, and future,
  • 00:09:00.519 --> 00:09:03.956
  • which simply means if you'lljust invite him into your life,
  • 00:09:03.990 --> 00:09:08.761
  • you have accomplishedeverything necessary
  • 00:09:08.794 --> 00:09:11.597
  • in order to get to heaven.
  • 00:09:11.631 --> 00:09:13.499
  • You don't go to heavenbecause you're good.
  • 00:09:13.532 --> 00:09:15.368
  • You go to heaven becauseyou believe in Jesus.
  • 00:09:15.401 --> 00:09:17.403
  • Amen?
  • 00:09:17.436 --> 00:09:19.171
  • Number two, the second reasonwhy Jesus was born, to redeem us
  • 00:09:19.205 --> 00:09:24.210
  • that were under the law sothat we can be adopted as sons.
  • 00:09:24.243 --> 00:09:29.081
  • To redeem us who wereunder the law
  • 00:09:29.115 --> 00:09:32.284
  • so we can be adopted as sons.
  • 00:09:32.318 --> 00:09:35.321
  • Galatians chapter 4 and verse 5.Take a look at that.
  • 00:09:35.354 --> 00:09:40.793
  • Now notice redeem, thatmeans something was paid.
  • 00:09:40.826 --> 00:09:44.864
  • He redeemed us from the law.
  • 00:09:44.897 --> 00:09:48.334
  • So the Law of Moses saidyou had to do this
  • 00:09:48.367 --> 00:09:51.771
  • and if you didn't do it,you would be judged.
  • 00:09:51.804 --> 00:09:54.006
  • If you--you had to do this.
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:55.474
  • If you didn't do it,you would be cursed.
  • 00:09:55.508 --> 00:09:56.909
  • You had to do this andif you didn't do it,
  • 00:09:56.942 --> 00:09:58.678
  • bad things will happen.
  • 00:09:58.711 --> 00:10:00.646
  • And nobody could keep the law.
  • 00:10:00.680 --> 00:10:02.915
  • And so Jesus showed up toredeem, to pay the price, the
  • 00:10:02.948 --> 00:10:07.353
  • ransom so that we can be freefrom the law and be adopted
  • 00:10:07.386 --> 00:10:12.158
  • as sons and daughters of God.
  • 00:10:12.191 --> 00:10:14.660
  • Had he not been born, thatwould not have been possible.
  • 00:10:14.694 --> 00:10:17.663
  • Galatians 4 and 5 says that hecame to redeem them that were
  • 00:10:17.697 --> 00:10:20.900
  • under the law that we mightreceive the adoption of sons.
  • 00:10:20.933 --> 00:10:25.471
  • If you're a woman,say, "I'm a daughter."
  • 00:10:25.504 --> 00:10:27.306
  • If you are a man,say, "I'm a son."
  • 00:10:27.339 --> 00:10:28.641
  • Go.Say it.
  • 00:10:28.674 --> 00:10:31.811
  • Number three, the third reasonJesus was born was to fulfill
  • 00:10:31.844 --> 00:10:36.982
  • the Law of Moses that wecould not fulfill, to fulfill
  • 00:10:37.016 --> 00:10:41.587
  • the Law of Moses that wecould not fulfill.
  • 00:10:41.620 --> 00:10:43.889
  • You know, the Bible says if youbreak one of those laws
  • 00:10:43.923 --> 00:10:47.760
  • out of 613, you're guiltyof breaking them all.
  • 00:10:47.793 --> 00:10:52.431
  • Who can do that?
  • 00:10:52.465 --> 00:10:53.833
  • Who can keep 613of all of the laws?
  • 00:10:53.866 --> 00:10:56.902
  • Nobody but Jesus could.So Jesus knew we couldn't do it.
  • 00:10:56.936 --> 00:11:00.406
  • So he had to be born sohe could do something
  • 00:11:00.439 --> 00:11:03.042
  • that we could not do.
  • 00:11:03.075 --> 00:11:05.010
  • Because people died under this.
  • 00:11:05.044 --> 00:11:07.480
  • The curse came over thembecause they could not keep
  • 00:11:07.513 --> 00:11:09.815
  • the law, but thank Godfor Jesus's birth.
  • 00:11:09.849 --> 00:11:13.085
  • And because he was born, he didwhat no other man could do
  • 00:11:13.119 --> 00:11:17.523
  • and we crowned himtoday as our champion.
  • 00:11:17.556 --> 00:11:20.526
  • Amen?
  • 00:11:20.559 --> 00:11:22.528
  • Number four, the fourth reasonthat Jesus was born,
  • 00:11:22.561 --> 00:11:27.299
  • to be a mediator ofa better covenant.
  • 00:11:27.333 --> 00:11:29.835
  • Hebrews chapter 8 and 6.
  • 00:11:29.869 --> 00:11:32.037
  • So we couldn't keepthe covenant of the law.
  • 00:11:32.071 --> 00:11:36.108
  • So another reason Jesus wasborn is to mediate a brand new
  • 00:11:36.142 --> 00:11:41.347
  • agreement, to be the mediator ofa brand new covenant, one that
  • 00:11:41.380 --> 00:11:46.185
  • we could keep and one that wouldmake us extremely successful.
  • 00:11:46.218 --> 00:11:49.989
  • Hebrews 8 and 6 says, "Butnow hath he obtained a more
  • 00:11:50.022 --> 00:11:53.325
  • excellent ministry, byhow much also he is
  • 00:11:53.359 --> 00:11:56.128
  • the mediator of abetter covenant--"
  • 00:11:56.162 --> 00:11:58.798
  • Somebody shout, "Better."
  • 00:11:58.831 --> 00:12:00.733
  • "Which was establishedupon better promises."
  • 00:12:00.766 --> 00:12:03.736
  • So you're no longer under thecovenant of the law,
  • 00:12:03.769 --> 00:12:07.540
  • something that you can't keepand if you break just
  • 00:12:07.573 --> 00:12:09.875
  • one of them you're guiltyof the whole thing.
  • 00:12:09.909 --> 00:12:12.077
  • Jesus says, "I'll do thatcovenant and I'm going
  • 00:12:12.111 --> 00:12:15.514
  • to give you a bettercovenant that you can do
  • 00:12:15.548 --> 00:12:17.683
  • and you got better promises."
  • 00:12:17.716 --> 00:12:19.618
  • I praise God today thatI celebrate a Jesus
  • 00:12:19.652 --> 00:12:24.523
  • who loved me enough tobe born so that I can
  • 00:12:24.557 --> 00:12:27.326
  • live under abetter covenant.
  • 00:12:27.359 --> 00:12:28.994
  • Amen?
  • 00:12:29.028 --> 00:12:32.731
  • Number five, Jesus was born sothat he could bring to us,
  • 00:12:32.765 --> 00:12:39.071
  • oh thank God, grace and truth.
  • 00:12:39.104 --> 00:12:43.042
  • John--St. John chapter 1:17,"Jesus came.
  • 00:12:43.075 --> 00:12:47.112
  • He was born so he couldbring to us grace and truth."
  • 00:12:47.146 --> 00:12:51.884
  • Now most people think, "Well,he gave us grace and then
  • 00:12:51.917 --> 00:12:54.353
  • he turned around andgave us truth."
  • 00:12:54.386 --> 00:12:55.688
  • No, they're the same.
  • 00:12:55.721 --> 00:12:57.556
  • One side of the and isin connection
  • 00:12:57.590 --> 00:12:59.892
  • with the other side of the and.
  • 00:12:59.925 --> 00:13:01.627
  • Grace is the truththat makes men free.
  • 00:13:01.660 --> 00:13:05.397
  • It's not grace and truth.
  • 00:13:05.431 --> 00:13:06.732
  • Grace is the truththat makes men free.
  • 00:13:06.765 --> 00:13:09.301
  • What is grace?
  • 00:13:09.335 --> 00:13:10.636
  • It's unmerited,undeserved favor of God.
  • 00:13:10.669 --> 00:13:13.806
  • It's you getting from Godeven when you didn't deserve it.
  • 00:13:13.839 --> 00:13:17.676
  • It is not God doing somethingbecause you've been good.
  • 00:13:17.710 --> 00:13:20.913
  • It is God doingsomething because he is good.
  • 00:13:20.946 --> 00:13:24.516
  • And today as we celebratethe birth of Jesus Christ, we
  • 00:13:24.550 --> 00:13:27.753
  • celebrate a Jesus who is agood God, and the Bible says
  • 00:13:27.786 --> 00:13:32.658
  • his goodness will cause aman to change his mind.
  • 00:13:32.691 --> 00:13:35.794
  • His goodness willcause a man to repent.
  • 00:13:35.828 --> 00:13:38.530
  • While the world isgoing through one thing,
  • 00:13:38.564 --> 00:13:40.799
  • you're going to be walking inthe unmerited, undeserved
  • 00:13:40.833 --> 00:13:44.136
  • goodness and favor of the Lord.
  • 00:13:44.169 --> 00:13:46.605
  • Somebody shoutabout that right quick.
  • 00:13:46.639 --> 00:13:48.340
  • Amen?
  • 00:13:48.374 --> 00:13:51.076
  • Number six, number six, thesixth reason why Jesus was born,
  • 00:13:51.110 --> 00:13:57.283
  • to pay the peace offeringor the payment of our sin.
  • 00:13:57.316 --> 00:14:02.021
  • Somebody had to pay it.
  • 00:14:02.054 --> 00:14:04.023
  • This was expensive, and nobodycould afford to pay the ransom
  • 00:14:04.056 --> 00:14:09.428
  • where your sin was concerned.
  • 00:14:09.461 --> 00:14:11.497
  • In fact, if you look at1 John 2 and 2,
  • 00:14:11.530 --> 00:14:14.400
  • Jesus was the peace offering.
  • 00:14:14.433 --> 00:14:17.369
  • Had he not been born, therewould not been a payment.
  • 00:14:17.403 --> 00:14:21.340
  • Not even hell wasenough to pay off that debt.
  • 00:14:21.373 --> 00:14:25.678
  • There was a sin debt, and Jesuswas born to pay that sin debt.
  • 00:14:25.711 --> 00:14:30.983
  • The Bible says in 1 John 2and 2, "And he is the
  • 00:14:31.016 --> 00:14:33.352
  • propitiation for our sins;and not for ours only, but
  • 00:14:33.385 --> 00:14:39.024
  • also for the sins ofthe whole world."
  • 00:14:39.058 --> 00:14:42.461
  • So Jesus came asthe propitiation
  • 00:14:42.494 --> 00:14:44.596
  • or the peace offering.
  • 00:14:44.630 --> 00:14:46.765
  • He was the sacrifice.He was the payment.
  • 00:14:46.799 --> 00:14:50.402
  • He was the peace offering.
  • 00:14:50.436 --> 00:14:52.371
  • So every time you think aboutJesus, think about Jesus as the
  • 00:14:52.404 --> 00:14:56.041
  • payment and the peaceoffering for all of your sins.
  • 00:14:56.075 --> 00:15:00.112
  • For you to go around and sweatlike a sinner as if nothing has
  • 00:15:00.145 --> 00:15:03.916
  • been done about it is for youto deny the payment
  • 00:15:03.949 --> 00:15:07.419
  • that has already been paid.
  • 00:15:07.453 --> 00:15:09.288
  • And had Jesus not been born,your payment would
  • 00:15:09.321 --> 00:15:12.324
  • not have shown upto pay your bills.
  • 00:15:12.358 --> 00:15:14.326
  • How many of you know they'llturn your lights off
  • 00:15:14.360 --> 00:15:16.228
  • if they don't get the paymentfor your electric bill?
  • 00:15:16.261 --> 00:15:18.497
  • Amen?
  • 00:15:18.530 --> 00:15:19.832
  • But I'm telling you,I'm glad that
  • 00:15:19.865 --> 00:15:21.166
  • Jesus's payment wasn't late.
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:23.168
  • It was right on time.
  • 00:15:23.202 --> 00:15:24.503
  • Amen?Praise God.
  • 00:15:24.536 --> 00:15:27.573
  • Number seven, the seventhreason why Jesus was born,
  • 00:15:27.606 --> 00:15:31.276
  • so that we can haveeverlasting life.
  • 00:15:31.310 --> 00:15:34.046
  • Everlasting life is so importantbecause right now
  • 00:15:34.079 --> 00:15:38.083
  • those of you who are bornagain your everlasting
  • 00:15:38.117 --> 00:15:40.619
  • life has already started.
  • 00:15:40.652 --> 00:15:42.488
  • Please understand something.
  • 00:15:42.521 --> 00:15:43.889
  • Now that you're born again,when you die,
  • 00:15:43.922 --> 00:15:46.658
  • you just go from glory to glory.
  • 00:15:46.692 --> 00:15:48.927
  • When you die, you slip outof the physical body
  • 00:15:48.961 --> 00:15:51.397
  • into a spiritual body.
  • 00:15:51.430 --> 00:15:53.365
  • When you die, you get outof a physical realm
  • 00:15:53.399 --> 00:15:56.335
  • into a spiritual realm.
  • 00:15:56.368 --> 00:15:58.237
  • Here's the good news.
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:15:59.772
  • You can never defeat aborn-again Christian.
  • 00:15:59.805 --> 00:16:04.643
  • We've been called tolive in faith and
  • 00:16:06.678 --> 00:16:09.181
  • we've been calledto die in faith.
  • 00:16:09.214 --> 00:16:11.116
  • But please I want you tounderstand, just because
  • 00:16:11.150 --> 00:16:13.719
  • somebody died physically doesn'tmean they lost the battle.
  • 00:16:13.752 --> 00:16:17.956
  • They just transitionedon into eternal life
  • 00:16:17.990 --> 00:16:20.826
  • where there is no time.
  • 00:16:20.859 --> 00:16:22.594
  • Right now we have time.
  • 00:16:22.628 --> 00:16:24.363
  • But praise God when yougot born again, you
  • 00:16:24.396 --> 00:16:26.365
  • stepped out of timeinto eternity.
  • 00:16:26.398 --> 00:16:29.101
  • And if it were not forthe birth of Jesus,
  • 00:16:29.134 --> 00:16:31.537
  • you wouldn't havethat opportunity.
  • 00:16:31.570 --> 00:16:34.406
  • Bible says in John 3:16, "ForGod so loved the world that he
  • 00:16:34.440 --> 00:16:37.709
  • gave his only begotten Son thatwhosoever believeth in him--"
  • 00:16:37.743 --> 00:16:41.814
  • Say out loud, "Ibelieve in Jesus."
  • 00:16:41.847 --> 00:16:45.551
  • "Should not perish, buthave everlasting life."
  • 00:16:45.584 --> 00:16:49.021
  • Don't you let somebody convinceyou that you're going to perish
  • 00:16:49.054 --> 00:16:51.924
  • because you missed themark or you missed that mark.
  • 00:16:51.957 --> 00:16:53.992
  • Jesus is taking care of allof that, and the Holy Ghost is
  • 00:16:54.026 --> 00:16:56.795
  • working on the inside of you andthe things you used to do
  • 00:16:56.829 --> 00:17:00.199
  • you ain't going towant to do no more.
  • 00:17:00.232 --> 00:17:01.934
  • The stuff that youjust did all the time
  • 00:17:01.967 --> 00:17:03.869
  • with addictedbehavior, Jesus is
  • 00:17:03.902 --> 00:17:06.905
  • going to snatch it away and he'sgetting ready to give you
  • 00:17:06.939 --> 00:17:10.776
  • a new desire to do new things.
  • 00:17:10.809 --> 00:17:12.377
  • Praise God.
  • 00:17:12.411 --> 00:17:13.979
  • And you got to tremble andshake wondering
  • 00:17:14.012 --> 00:17:16.248
  • if he's going todo it once again.
  • 00:17:16.281 --> 00:17:18.517
  • Because you have the Holy Ghostworking on the inside of you.
  • 00:17:18.550 --> 00:17:20.919
  • Because when Jesusshowed up--

  • Number eight.

  • Stop condemning people.
  • 00:19:06.792 --> 00:19:08.927
  • If God's not condemning you,you stop condemning people.
  • 00:19:08.961 --> 00:19:11.830
  • Let me say it like this.
  • 00:19:11.863 --> 00:19:13.165

  • "God, remember whatI did last week?"
  • 00:19:25.911 --> 00:19:27.212
  • He would say, "Wait, wait.We don't have this on record."
  • 00:19:27.246 --> 00:19:28.547
  • Why?
  • 00:19:28.580 --> 00:19:29.881
  • Because he took your sinsand he cast them as far
  • 00:19:29.915 --> 00:19:31.216
  • as the east is in the west.
  • 00:19:31.250 --> 00:19:32.551
