  • - You know what?
  • 00:00:00.885 --> 00:00:01.852
  • I'm one of thosecrazy faith guys
  • 00:00:01.886 --> 00:00:03.354
  • and I believe the God of theChristian faith is a big God,
  • 00:00:03.387 --> 00:00:08.259
  • and I believe He canturn anything around.
  • 00:00:08.292 --> 00:00:10.428
  • The Bible says, "Hegives beauty for ashes.
  • 00:00:10.461 --> 00:00:12.830
  • "He turns your sorrow into joy."
  • 00:00:12.863 --> 00:00:14.632
  • God is a God of exchange.
  • 00:00:14.665 --> 00:00:16.133
  • That's why we're talkingabout flipping the script.
  • 00:00:16.167 --> 00:00:18.302
  • God can totally rewritethe story of your life
  • 00:00:18.335 --> 00:00:21.272
  • and it may bebeginning right now.
  • 00:00:21.305 --> 00:00:23.741
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:00:23.774 --> 00:00:26.377
  • RCTV 313Message: 10-18-20Airs:1-17-21
  • 00:00:28.012 --> 00:00:39.223
  • (clear throat) "Blessedbe the God and Father
  • 00:00:39.256 --> 00:00:42.726
  • "of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:00:42.760 --> 00:00:45.196
  • "who has blessed us,"
  • 00:00:46.564 --> 00:00:48.432
  • for those of you whodon't believe in blessing
  • 00:00:50.434 --> 00:00:53.370
  • we're three verses deep.
  • 00:00:53.404 --> 00:00:55.506
  • "Who has blessed us withevery spiritual blessing
  • 00:00:55.539 --> 00:00:59.543
  • "in heavenly places."
  • 00:00:59.577 --> 00:01:01.479
  • So everything that is in heaven
  • 00:01:01.512 --> 00:01:04.949
  • that could aid us in this life
  • 00:01:04.982 --> 00:01:08.119
  • is now accessible.
  • 00:01:09.186 --> 00:01:10.988
  • Everything in heaven thatcan help Ron Carpenter here
  • 00:01:13.457 --> 00:01:18.162
  • through Jesus Christ isnow accessible to me.
  • 00:01:18.195 --> 00:01:21.398
  • I'm teaching the Bible today.
  • 00:01:21.432 --> 00:01:23.934
  • Now, "just as He chose us in Him
  • 00:01:23.968 --> 00:01:26.470
  • before the foundation ofthe world," to do what?
  • 00:01:26.504 --> 00:01:29.173
  • "That we should be holy withoutblame before Him in love.
  • 00:01:29.206 --> 00:01:32.610
  • "Having predestinedus to adoption of sons
  • 00:01:32.643 --> 00:01:35.146
  • "by Jesus Christ Himself,
  • 00:01:35.179 --> 00:01:37.181
  • "according to the goodpleasure of His will."
  • 00:01:37.214 --> 00:01:40.017
  • That's what I wantto hone in on.
  • 00:01:40.050 --> 00:01:42.186
  • So, we understand that in heaven
  • 00:01:42.219 --> 00:01:44.588
  • God had a purpose and a will.
  • 00:01:44.622 --> 00:01:47.391
  • In other words, Godhad an original intent.
  • 00:01:47.424 --> 00:01:50.561
  • What was God's original intent?
  • 00:01:50.594 --> 00:01:53.230
  • Because when you talkabout restoration,
  • 00:01:53.264 --> 00:01:55.766
  • you're talking aboutreturning something
  • 00:01:55.799 --> 00:01:57.468
  • to its original state.
  • 00:01:57.501 --> 00:01:59.737
  • Let me read verses 11 and 12.
  • 00:02:00.905 --> 00:02:02.973
  • "In Him,
  • 00:02:04.208 --> 00:02:06.210
  • "we have obtainedan inheritance..."
  • 00:02:08.212 --> 00:02:11.215
  • The root word ofinheritance is heir.
  • 00:02:12.349 --> 00:02:14.919
  • An heir is someone thathas a prearranged blessing
  • 00:02:14.952 --> 00:02:18.923
  • coming to them for aspecific time of maturity.
  • 00:02:18.956 --> 00:02:22.760
  • So you may have a trust fundthat a grandfather left for you
  • 00:02:22.793 --> 00:02:26.030
  • and you can't touchit until you're 25.
  • 00:02:26.063 --> 00:02:28.399
  • 24 years old you canbe poor as a hound dog
  • 00:02:28.432 --> 00:02:31.635
  • on a country front porch,
  • 00:02:31.669 --> 00:02:33.437
  • and 25 you can be a millionaire.
  • 00:02:33.470 --> 00:02:35.739
  • And the thing is wererich the whole time
  • 00:02:35.773 --> 00:02:38.842
  • you were just not at the placeof maturity to access it.
  • 00:02:38.876 --> 00:02:41.912
  • My God I'm preaching.
  • 00:02:41.946 --> 00:02:43.614
  • There are manyblessings that are ours
  • 00:02:43.647 --> 00:02:46.116
  • God has already bestowed them,
  • 00:02:46.150 --> 00:02:48.219
  • but we are not ata place of maturity
  • 00:02:48.252 --> 00:02:50.421
  • where we can access it.
  • 00:02:50.454 --> 00:02:51.855
  • We all have aninheritance, say that.
  • 00:02:51.889 --> 00:02:53.891
  • Say I have an inheritance.
  • 00:02:53.924 --> 00:02:55.226
  • If you're in room withpeople pointed them say,
  • 00:02:55.259 --> 00:02:57.328
  • you have an inheritance.
  • 00:02:57.361 --> 00:02:58.596
  • Like, somebody shareit, text them, say
  • 00:02:58.629 --> 00:03:00.598
  • you got to get in on this.
  • 00:03:00.631 --> 00:03:01.966
  • You have an inheritance.
  • 00:03:01.999 --> 00:03:03.634
  • This thing is real I'm preachingit right out of the Bible.
  • 00:03:03.667 --> 00:03:06.537
  • But an inheritance only comes
  • 00:03:06.570 --> 00:03:08.405
  • at a specific time of maturity.
  • 00:03:08.439 --> 00:03:10.574
  • Maturity with God isnot chronological age,
  • 00:03:10.608 --> 00:03:14.078
  • it is seasonal age.
  • 00:03:14.111 --> 00:03:15.646
  • Have you navigated throughthe seasons of life
  • 00:03:15.679 --> 00:03:18.849
  • and learned how to livelife out of your spirit
  • 00:03:18.882 --> 00:03:22.486
  • instead of out of your flesh
  • 00:03:23.354 --> 00:03:24.555
  • and your emotionsand everything else.
  • 00:03:24.588 --> 00:03:27.057
  • "They that are led by the spiritthese are the sons of God."
  • 00:03:28.459 --> 00:03:31.629
  • That word son is we asa fully matured son.
  • 00:03:31.662 --> 00:03:36.667
  • Can I go into everysituation of my life
  • 00:03:37.868 --> 00:03:39.603
  • and do what the spirit says
  • 00:03:39.637 --> 00:03:42.172
  • and not obey allthese other functions
  • 00:03:42.206 --> 00:03:44.141
  • and urges going on inside of me.
  • 00:03:44.174 --> 00:03:46.377
  • "We have obtained an inheritance
  • 00:03:47.478 --> 00:03:50.514
  • "being predestined accordingto the purpose of Him
  • 00:03:51.882 --> 00:03:53.951
  • "who works all things accordingto the counsel of His will."
  • 00:03:53.984 --> 00:03:58.989
  • Okay?
  • 00:03:59.556 --> 00:04:00.991
  • We have an inheritance,then you have commas.
  • 00:04:02.159 --> 00:04:06.130
  • So the things in the commasas a supporting statement.
  • 00:04:06.163 --> 00:04:09.633
  • Let me connect whatthe inheritance is.
  • 00:04:09.667 --> 00:04:11.902
  • "We have an inheritance,"go past the commas.
  • 00:04:11.935 --> 00:04:14.138
  • What is it?
  • 00:04:14.171 --> 00:04:15.406
  • "That we who firsttrusted in Christ
  • 00:04:15.439 --> 00:04:18.509
  • "should be to thepraise of His glory."
  • 00:04:18.542 --> 00:04:21.278
  • That's a weird statement.
  • 00:04:22.446 --> 00:04:24.448
  • Say it again, say Ihave an inheritance.
  • 00:04:24.481 --> 00:04:26.984
  • What is it?
  • 00:04:28.719 --> 00:04:29.753
  • "That we who trusted in Christ
  • 00:04:30.654 --> 00:04:33.624
  • "should be to thepraise of His glory."
  • 00:04:33.657 --> 00:04:37.361
  • So the inheritance from God
  • 00:04:37.394 --> 00:04:39.730
  • is not something I'msupposed to have.
  • 00:04:39.763 --> 00:04:43.534
  • It's not somethingI'm supposed to get.
  • 00:04:43.567 --> 00:04:45.536
  • (clear throat) It's not a thing.
  • 00:04:45.569 --> 00:04:48.672
  • Is something I'msupposed to become.
  • 00:04:48.706 --> 00:04:51.508
  • We have an inheritance
  • 00:04:55.145 --> 00:04:57.314
  • that we who firsttrusted Christ should be.
  • 00:04:57.348 --> 00:05:01.885
  • My inheritance isa state of being.
  • 00:05:03.954 --> 00:05:07.991
  • It's not amount of money.
  • 00:05:08.025 --> 00:05:10.994
  • It's not something God's goingto touch somebody's heart
  • 00:05:11.028 --> 00:05:14.231
  • and let them give into my life.
  • 00:05:14.264 --> 00:05:16.033
  • There is something God hasprearranged for me to become.
  • 00:05:16.066 --> 00:05:21.071
  • My God, "That I should beto the praise of his glory."
  • 00:05:22.773 --> 00:05:27.578
  • The word praisemeans to commend.
  • 00:05:27.611 --> 00:05:30.314
  • I commend you on that.
  • 00:05:31.181 --> 00:05:33.083
  • So if I'm praising,I'm commending.
  • 00:05:34.218 --> 00:05:37.388
  • "That we should be tothe praise of His glory."
  • 00:05:37.421 --> 00:05:40.090
  • The word glory meanslikeness and recognition.
  • 00:05:40.124 --> 00:05:42.926
  • I have an inheritance
  • 00:05:44.428 --> 00:05:46.997
  • that my life
  • 00:05:47.865 --> 00:05:50.167
  • should be a commendation
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:53.270
  • to His likeness.
  • 00:05:53.303 --> 00:05:55.606
  • In other words, my inheritance
  • 00:05:55.639 --> 00:05:58.475
  • is now Jesus has died rose again
  • 00:05:59.543 --> 00:06:02.746
  • and ascended back into heaven
  • 00:06:02.780 --> 00:06:05.349
  • that people when they see mecoming they see Jesus coming.
  • 00:06:05.382 --> 00:06:09.486
  • In other words, when yousay, I need God to show up.
  • 00:06:10.888 --> 00:06:14.224
  • If a Christian shows up atyour door, then God did show up
  • 00:06:14.258 --> 00:06:17.528
  • because they'reinside the person whoshowed up at the door.
  • 00:06:17.561 --> 00:06:20.931
  • That person is there tobe a praise to His glory.
  • 00:06:20.964 --> 00:06:24.468
  • It is our inheritance
  • 00:06:24.501 --> 00:06:26.069
  • that when I lay hands onthe sick they recover,
  • 00:06:26.103 --> 00:06:29.006
  • that when I tell ademon to go it goes,
  • 00:06:29.039 --> 00:06:31.642
  • that we see signs andwonders and miracles.
  • 00:06:31.675 --> 00:06:34.111
  • Whatever Jesus did isoperative in my life.
  • 00:06:34.144 --> 00:06:37.848
  • That is my inheritance asa son of the most high God.
  • 00:06:37.881 --> 00:06:41.885
  • So that somebody, whenthey call on Jesus
  • 00:06:41.919 --> 00:06:45.456
  • Jesus can send me and whateverJesus would have done,
  • 00:06:45.489 --> 00:06:49.827
  • if He was there in the flesh,will happen when Ron shows up.
  • 00:06:49.860 --> 00:06:53.297
  • Let me say that again.
  • 00:06:53.330 --> 00:06:54.765
  • My inheritance is that somebodycan have a need or pray
  • 00:06:54.798 --> 00:06:59.603
  • and pray to Jesus and thenwhatever Jesus would have done,
  • 00:06:59.636 --> 00:07:03.841
  • if He would haveshowed up in the flesh,
  • 00:07:03.874 --> 00:07:06.009
  • will happen when Ronshows up in the flesh.
  • 00:07:06.043 --> 00:07:08.278
  • That is the kind of churchGod is speaking to me
  • 00:07:08.312 --> 00:07:12.216
  • that He wants toraise up in this day.
  • 00:07:12.249 --> 00:07:13.884
  • I know we got churchesthat want to keep it simple
  • 00:07:13.917 --> 00:07:16.320
  • and I know we got churchesthat don't want people delving
  • 00:07:16.353 --> 00:07:19.490
  • into the world of the Spirit.
  • 00:07:19.523 --> 00:07:21.158
  • You know why?
  • 00:07:21.191 --> 00:07:22.092
  • Because the world of the Spirit
  • 00:07:22.125 --> 00:07:23.227
  • cannot be controlledby the flesh
  • 00:07:23.260 --> 00:07:24.862
  • and they don'twant to release it.
  • 00:07:24.895 --> 00:07:26.597
  • But it's also the accessto supernatural life,
  • 00:07:26.630 --> 00:07:29.299
  • I can't introduce youto supernatural living,
  • 00:07:29.333 --> 00:07:32.736
  • I can't introduce youto your original intent
  • 00:07:32.769 --> 00:07:35.606
  • until you've been introducedto the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:35.639 --> 00:07:38.041
  • Do you know the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:07:38.075 --> 00:07:39.743
  • I know you know Jesus, buthave you met the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:07:39.776 --> 00:07:43.614
  • Because just like you askedJesus to come into your heart
  • 00:07:43.647 --> 00:07:46.984
  • you need to ask to befilled with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:47.017 --> 00:07:49.987
  • And with the evidence ofspeaking in a new tongue
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:52.890
  • God will let you know that
  • 00:07:52.923 --> 00:07:54.324
  • that exact experiencehas happened
  • 00:07:54.358 --> 00:07:57.594
  • then you have revelationto a whole new life
  • 00:07:57.628 --> 00:08:01.064
  • where God can show youeverything you were meant to be
  • 00:08:01.098 --> 00:08:04.201
  • and everything youwere meant to do.
  • 00:08:04.234 --> 00:08:05.969
  • I am amazed, mystifiedand amused and confused
  • 00:08:06.003 --> 00:08:10.774
  • by preachers who are constantlywanting to tell people
  • 00:08:10.807 --> 00:08:14.044
  • I'm here to help youreach your potential,
  • 00:08:14.077 --> 00:08:16.280
  • but will not introducethem to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:16.313 --> 00:08:18.815
  • Preachers you don'tknow their potential.
  • 00:08:18.849 --> 00:08:21.251
  • Only the Holy Spiritknows their potential.
  • 00:08:21.285 --> 00:08:23.787
  • The Holy Spirit is the onlyone who knows all their,
  • 00:08:23.820 --> 00:08:27.024
  • "Who knows God,"1 Corinthians 2,
  • 00:08:27.057 --> 00:08:28.759
  • "except the spirit of God,
  • 00:08:28.792 --> 00:08:30.460
  • "and who knows a manexcept the spirit of a man,
  • 00:08:30.494 --> 00:08:33.163
  • "which is in him."
  • 00:08:33.196 --> 00:08:34.631
  • How are you going to takethem to their purpose
  • 00:08:34.665 --> 00:08:36.166
  • and reach their potentialunless you know it?
  • 00:08:36.199 --> 00:08:39.036
  • Well, the Holy Spirit knows it
  • 00:08:39.069 --> 00:08:40.837
  • but you won't tell themabout the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:40.871 --> 00:08:42.839
  • Introduced themto the Holy Spirit
  • 00:08:42.873 --> 00:08:44.708
  • and take the parametersoff their life
  • 00:08:44.741 --> 00:08:47.311
  • and let them livethis journey with God
  • 00:08:47.344 --> 00:08:50.414
  • as God would have them to.
  • 00:08:50.447 --> 00:08:52.015
  • I am talking to somebody,not meddling right now,
  • 00:08:52.049 --> 00:08:54.551
  • but I feel the Spiritof God is I'm preaching,

  • - Sometime I don'tshare blessings.
  • 00:10:53.737 --> 00:10:55.439
  • You know, I just...
  • 00:10:55.472 --> 00:10:57.274
  • You don't ever know howpeople are going to take them.
  • 00:10:57.307 --> 00:11:00.777
  • But I don't haveany real hobbies;
  • 00:11:00.811 --> 00:11:03.547
  • I'm not a golfer.
  • 00:11:04.614 --> 00:11:06.149
  • I know guys that just spend
  • 00:11:06.183 --> 00:11:07.350
  • endless amounts oftime and money in golf.
  • 00:11:07.384 --> 00:11:09.953
  • I'm going to tell youwhy I don't play golf.
  • 00:11:09.986 --> 00:11:11.188
  • I've always been very athletic.
  • 00:11:11.221 --> 00:11:13.724
  • But I don't play golf
  • 00:11:14.591 --> 00:11:16.393
  • because I don't havethe time to invest in it
  • 00:11:16.426 --> 00:11:18.628
  • and it's a game that you haveto invest in to get good,
  • 00:11:18.662 --> 00:11:22.399
  • and I don't want to play ifI can't beat you. (chuckles)
  • 00:11:22.432 --> 00:11:26.303
  • If I don't at least havea chance to beat you
  • 00:11:26.336 --> 00:11:28.071
  • it's not fun for me to play.
  • 00:11:28.105 --> 00:11:29.272
  • So I don't play a lot of golf.
  • 00:11:29.306 --> 00:11:30.774
  • If someone wants to go outand laugh, hysterically
  • 00:11:30.807 --> 00:11:32.142
  • I'll go golfing with them,
  • 00:11:32.175 --> 00:11:33.677
  • but I just don'tplay a lot of golf.
  • 00:11:33.710 --> 00:11:35.679
  • So I don't have anyreally any hobbies.
  • 00:11:35.712 --> 00:11:37.147
  • When I was a country boy
  • 00:11:37.180 --> 00:11:38.415
  • I did a lot offishing and hunting.
  • 00:11:38.448 --> 00:11:40.550
  • Of course I livedeep in the city now
  • 00:11:40.584 --> 00:11:42.252
  • and those things are out ofreach unless I took a trip.
  • 00:11:42.285 --> 00:11:45.388
  • I don't really haveanything that I do.
  • 00:11:45.422 --> 00:11:48.692
  • So, I like old muscle cars.
  • 00:11:48.725 --> 00:11:50.927
  • So I always watch theseauctions sometime at night
  • 00:11:52.395 --> 00:11:55.932
  • and Hope will sit downthere and she'll, you know
  • 00:11:55.966 --> 00:11:58.335
  • oblige me by sitting thereand watching them with me
  • 00:11:58.368 --> 00:12:00.804
  • and ask questions.
  • 00:12:00.837 --> 00:12:01.605
  • I'm not a mechanic.
  • 00:12:01.638 --> 00:12:02.839
  • I don't even knowa lot about it.
  • 00:12:02.873 --> 00:12:04.474
  • I'm just so intrigued bysomebody who can take a car
  • 00:12:04.508 --> 00:12:08.078
  • 50 to a hundred yearsold and it's original.
  • 00:12:08.111 --> 00:12:11.948
  • (clear throat)
  • 00:12:11.982 --> 00:12:13.316
  • That just amazesme. (clear throat)
  • 00:12:13.350 --> 00:12:14.851
  • Something that's older than me
  • 00:12:14.885 --> 00:12:17.921
  • and it's in its original state.
  • 00:12:17.954 --> 00:12:20.524
  • So my 30th anniversary,
  • 00:12:22.993 --> 00:12:24.628
  • I didn't know it butI came home one day
  • 00:12:24.661 --> 00:12:26.196
  • and my wife had bought meone of those old muscle cars.
  • 00:12:26.229 --> 00:12:30.000
  • And it's about 60% restoredto original intent.
  • 00:12:30.033 --> 00:12:35.038
  • It still has some partsthat are not original.
  • 00:12:36.206 --> 00:12:38.942
  • And I'm talking to some people,because I don't know how,
  • 00:12:38.975 --> 00:12:41.878
  • who can help me makeit all original,
  • 00:12:41.912 --> 00:12:44.548
  • making the numbers matchand all the parts on it
  • 00:12:44.581 --> 00:12:47.017
  • are original partsto this muscle car.
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:50.187
  • And I realize that restoration
  • 00:12:50.220 --> 00:12:52.722
  • can also be the creationof a new structure.
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:56.927
  • But anybody who's triedto restore a house,
  • 00:12:56.960 --> 00:12:59.663
  • you bought a house that wasa hundred years old (coughs)
  • 00:12:59.696 --> 00:13:02.599
  • and over those hundred years
  • 00:13:02.632 --> 00:13:03.800
  • its got eight coatsof paint on it,
  • 00:13:03.834 --> 00:13:06.002
  • and you want the originalcharacter of the house
  • 00:13:06.036 --> 00:13:08.405
  • to come out in thegrain of the wood.
  • 00:13:08.438 --> 00:13:10.774
  • You got to scrape offeight coats of paint.
  • 00:13:10.807 --> 00:13:14.377
  • You've got dirt andyou've got dust everywhere
  • 00:13:17.214 --> 00:13:20.016
  • and you've got lead paintyou got to clean out.
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:22.219
  • And with the car you gotoil and you got grease
  • 00:13:22.252 --> 00:13:24.487
  • and you've got parts laying overhere, and parts laying. Over...
  • 00:13:24.521 --> 00:13:27.457
  • And I realized there'san aspect of restoration
  • 00:13:27.490 --> 00:13:30.794
  • that takes time,
  • 00:13:30.827 --> 00:13:32.863
  • and there's an aspect ofrestoration that's messy.
  • 00:13:32.896 --> 00:13:37.067
  • Because true restorationis original intent.
  • 00:13:39.002 --> 00:13:42.672
  • I'm going to shift a little bit.
  • 00:13:47.878 --> 00:13:50.647
  • Adam was God's original intent.
  • 00:13:50.680 --> 00:13:53.283
  • When you go to Genesisand you read about Adam,
  • 00:13:54.851 --> 00:13:57.254
  • that was the way God intendedus to live our lives.
  • 00:13:57.287 --> 00:14:01.524
  • We're talking aboutrestoration, flipping the script
  • 00:14:01.558 --> 00:14:04.327
  • and restoration having todo with the original intent.
  • 00:14:04.361 --> 00:14:08.999
  • So what was God'soriginal intent for me?
  • 00:14:09.032 --> 00:14:11.534
  • "That I'll be apraise to His glory."
  • 00:14:11.568 --> 00:14:13.169
  • That's the thingI've talked about.
  • 00:14:13.203 --> 00:14:14.704
  • So what does that look like?
  • 00:14:14.738 --> 00:14:16.139
  • It looks like Adam.
  • 00:14:16.172 --> 00:14:18.275
  • Because Adamfunctioned like Jesus.
  • 00:14:18.308 --> 00:14:21.044
  • A lot of people don'tever read the scriptures
  • 00:14:21.077 --> 00:14:24.047
  • because I can tell when Isay it it'll almost shock,
  • 00:14:24.080 --> 00:14:27.651
  • it's like a shocktreatment to it.
  • 00:14:27.684 --> 00:14:29.085
  • But Luke 6:38, when thelineages are being rolled out
  • 00:14:29.119 --> 00:14:32.555
  • the lineage goes allthe way back to Adam.
  • 00:14:32.589 --> 00:14:36.526
  • And when it says Adam,
  • 00:14:36.559 --> 00:14:37.761
  • it says then his lineageis the son of God.
  • 00:14:37.794 --> 00:14:41.231
  • God had two sons.
  • 00:14:41.264 --> 00:14:42.699
  • You're in one oryou're in the other.
  • 00:14:43.867 --> 00:14:46.937
  • The first Adam was a man ofthe flesh 1 Corinthians 15,
  • 00:14:48.405 --> 00:14:51.308
  • go read it.
  • 00:14:51.341 --> 00:14:52.542
  • The first Adam wasa man of the flesh.
  • 00:14:52.575 --> 00:14:54.144
  • Jesus, the last Adamwas a man the Spirit.
  • 00:14:54.177 --> 00:14:57.380
  • The first Adam, aman of the earth
  • 00:14:57.414 --> 00:14:59.015
  • the second Adam, aman from heaven, okay?
  • 00:14:59.049 --> 00:15:01.785
  • The first one, he reignedand he deteriorated
  • 00:15:01.818 --> 00:15:05.455
  • The second one, reignsin glory, He's eternal.
  • 00:15:05.488 --> 00:15:08.458
  • All this is describedin 1 Corinthians 15,
  • 00:15:08.491 --> 00:15:11.561
  • the whole chapter almost.
  • 00:15:11.594 --> 00:15:13.029
  • So you got to understand you'reeither in one or the other.
  • 00:15:13.063 --> 00:15:16.299
  • If you've not met thesecond Adam, Jesus,
  • 00:15:16.333 --> 00:15:19.135
  • you're still a man of the flesh
  • 00:15:19.169 --> 00:15:21.271
  • waiting to be born of the Spirit
  • 00:15:21.304 --> 00:15:23.340
  • because when a man acceptsJesus, He is born of the Spirit.
  • 00:15:23.373 --> 00:15:26.309
  • That's a good teachingRon Carpenter, hallelujah.
  • 00:15:26.343 --> 00:15:29.245
  • So Adam was God'soriginal intent.
  • 00:15:29.279 --> 00:15:31.247
  • God's original intent wasnever for Adam to rule by work.
  • 00:15:31.281 --> 00:15:35.719
  • I know our hard workers and Ihave the work ethic of an ox.
  • 00:15:35.752 --> 00:15:39.255
  • I love to work.
  • 00:15:39.289 --> 00:15:40.523
  • I love people around methat don't mind working.
  • 00:15:40.557 --> 00:15:42.826
  • But God's original intent
  • 00:15:42.859 --> 00:15:44.127
  • was not for Adam toincrease my work,
  • 00:15:44.160 --> 00:15:46.730
  • but increased by his words.
  • 00:15:46.763 --> 00:15:48.665
  • And God put Adam in theearth crowned him with glory,
  • 00:15:48.698 --> 00:15:52.535
  • crowned him with honor.
  • 00:15:52.569 --> 00:15:54.037
  • And the word glory in theOld Testament, Psalm 8,
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:56.940
  • does not mean whatit does in the new.
  • 00:15:56.973 --> 00:15:58.742
  • In the New to be acommendation to His glory
  • 00:15:58.775 --> 00:16:01.044
  • means likeness and recognition.
  • 00:16:01.077 --> 00:16:02.612
  • In the old Testament, itmeans weight and authority.
  • 00:16:02.645 --> 00:16:05.148
  • So God put Adam in the earth
  • 00:16:05.181 --> 00:16:07.117
  • and then gave him hisweight and authority.
  • 00:16:07.150 --> 00:16:09.652
  • So when Adam spoke in the earthGod backed up what Adam said
  • 00:16:09.686 --> 00:16:14.691
  • that's powerful.
  • 00:16:15.291 --> 00:16:16.726
  • And then God told Adamnow this is how you live,
  • 00:16:16.760 --> 00:16:19.295
  • whatever you call itthat's what it will be.
  • 00:16:19.329 --> 00:16:22.999
  • So Adam lived in a worldthat was meant and designed
  • 00:16:24.401 --> 00:16:28.271
  • to respond to his words.
  • 00:16:28.304 --> 00:16:30.306
  • That's how Adam lived, thatwas Adam's original intent.
  • 00:16:31.775 --> 00:16:34.978
  • Adam was the son of God
  • 00:16:35.011 --> 00:16:36.579
  • and He was crownedwith glory and honor,
  • 00:16:36.613 --> 00:16:39.749
  • but because of his choices,
  • 00:16:39.783 --> 00:16:41.718
  • "All have sinned andcome short of the glory."
  • 00:16:41.751 --> 00:16:44.687
  • So in other words,
  • 00:16:44.721 --> 00:16:46.156
  • Adam lost the ability to speakand God back up his words.
  • 00:16:46.189 --> 00:16:50.493
  • So now Adam istrapped in a world
  • 00:16:50.527 --> 00:16:53.263
  • where He speaksnothing responds.
  • 00:16:54.464 --> 00:16:57.667
  • So what did Jesus do?
  • 00:16:57.700 --> 00:16:59.436
  • He wanted to restore usto the original intent
  • 00:17:00.603 --> 00:17:04.240
  • of creation in Genesis 1 and 2.
  • 00:17:04.274 --> 00:17:06.810
  • The original intent was to giveus the power and the weight
  • 00:17:06.843 --> 00:17:11.614
  • and authority to say a thing,say it in the name of Jesus,
  • 00:17:11.648 --> 00:17:15.118
  • and when we say it, thenheaven backs up what we say,
  • 00:17:15.151 --> 00:17:18.555
  • and we no longer have to getGod to speak to a mountain,
  • 00:17:18.588 --> 00:17:21.591
  • hallelujah, but we can say,
  • 00:17:21.624 --> 00:17:23.493
  • "Be thou removed andbe cast into the sea"
  • 00:17:23.526 --> 00:17:25.862
  • and it shall be done for us.
  • 00:17:25.895 --> 00:17:28.231
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:17:31.901 --> 00:17:33.369
  • So Jesus came, and theBible says in John 1
  • 00:17:33.403 --> 00:17:37.006
  • "And we beheld the glory,
  • 00:17:38.441 --> 00:17:39.909
  • the glory as of the onlybegotten of the Father."
  • 00:17:39.943 --> 00:17:43.880
  • So in other words,millenniums have gone by
  • 00:17:43.913 --> 00:17:47.484
  • and we don't knowwhat glory looks like.
  • 00:17:48.618 --> 00:17:50.687
  • We don't know what it looks like
  • 00:17:50.720 --> 00:17:52.522
  • for somebody to rule hisworld with his words.
  • 00:17:52.555 --> 00:17:55.325
  • So Jesus comes and whatdoes He start doing?
  • 00:17:55.358 --> 00:17:57.861
  • We behold glory, why?
  • 00:17:57.894 --> 00:17:59.295
  • Because Jesus starts talkingand everything obeys.
  • 00:17:59.329 --> 00:18:02.132
  • So the wind obeys Him.
  • 00:18:02.165 --> 00:18:03.666
  • The waves quit beating inthe boat, they obey Him.
  • 00:18:03.700 --> 00:18:06.536
  • The storm is still.
  • 00:18:06.569 --> 00:18:08.371
  • Fever obeys Him,demons obey Him.
  • 00:18:08.404 --> 00:18:11.174
  • He speaks to a figtree, it obeys Him.
  • 00:18:12.709 --> 00:18:15.879
  • Whatever He speaks to it moves.
  • 00:18:17.313 --> 00:18:19.415
  • Finally, the Romancenturion and he said,
  • 00:18:19.449 --> 00:18:22.552
  • somebody said,"His servant's sick
  • 00:18:22.585 --> 00:18:25.155
  • "would you come to the house."
  • 00:18:25.188 --> 00:18:26.089
  • And the Centurion said, "No, no.
  • 00:18:26.122 --> 00:18:27.690
  • "I don't need Himto come to my house.
  • 00:18:27.724 --> 00:18:29.459
  • "Just tell Him to speak a word."
  • 00:18:29.492 --> 00:18:30.927
  • He understood thatwhen Jesus spoke
  • 00:18:30.960 --> 00:18:33.563
  • it wasn't His proximityto the problem
  • 00:18:33.596 --> 00:18:36.399
  • that caused the miracle.
  • 00:18:36.432 --> 00:18:37.867
  • It was the weight thatwas backing Him up,
  • 00:18:37.901 --> 00:18:40.203
  • that Jesus was speaking
  • 00:18:40.236 --> 00:18:41.738
  • and heaven was backingup what He said.
  • 00:18:41.771 --> 00:18:44.140
  • The centurion recognized Hehad a weight on his life.
  • 00:18:44.174 --> 00:18:47.577
  • What Jesus came was torestore us to original intent.
  • 00:18:47.610 --> 00:18:51.915
  • I wonder
  • 00:18:51.948 --> 00:18:52.782
  • what you would be like
  • 00:18:54.617 --> 00:18:56.152
  • if all that had nothappened to you.
  • 00:18:56.186 --> 00:18:59.189
  • (coughs)
  • 00:19:02.559 --> 00:19:04.661
  • I wonder
  • 00:19:07.330 --> 00:19:08.164
  • what the originalintent for your life was
  • 00:19:09.566 --> 00:19:13.670
  • but you were molested.
  • 00:19:13.703 --> 00:19:15.538
  • I wonder what youroriginal intent was,
  • 00:19:18.508 --> 00:19:21.678
  • but your home brokeup and you went crazy.
  • 00:19:21.711 --> 00:19:24.480
  • I wonder what youroriginal intent was
  • 00:19:24.514 --> 00:19:27.784
  • before you wentthrough that divorce.
  • 00:19:27.817 --> 00:19:29.185
  • I wonder what youroriginal intent was
  • 00:19:29.219 --> 00:19:31.988
  • before that druggrips your life.
  • 00:19:32.021 --> 00:19:34.123
  • I wonder what youroriginal intent was
  • 00:19:34.157 --> 00:19:36.993
  • before that perversion tookyou down a twisted road.
  • 00:19:37.026 --> 00:19:41.231
  • I wonder what the originalintent was before that abuse.
  • 00:19:41.264 --> 00:19:45.635
  • I wonder what you were and whoyou were before that happened.
  • 00:19:45.668 --> 00:19:50.640
  • It's really, wasn'twhere I planned on going.
  • 00:19:55.278 --> 00:19:58.114
  • I didn't even turnthe pages on my notes.
  • 00:19:58.147 --> 00:20:01.818
  • I'm just preachingby the Spirit of God.
  • 00:20:01.851 --> 00:20:04.687
  • (ambient music)
  • 00:20:04.721 --> 00:20:08.057
  • I wonder.
  • 00:20:08.091 --> 00:20:09.259
  • (ambient music)
  • 00:20:09.292 --> 00:20:11.961
  • David sinned andwent back and prayed
  • 00:20:15.164 --> 00:20:17.267
  • in Psalm 51 he said,
  • 00:20:17.300 --> 00:20:18.501
  • "Restore unto me thejoy of my salvation."
  • 00:20:18.534 --> 00:20:21.871
  • Take me back to thatinitial experience
  • 00:20:23.273 --> 00:20:26.943
  • when I was filled with joy,just because I met you.
  • 00:20:26.976 --> 00:20:31.981
  • The hand was restoredto original intent.
  • 00:20:33.149 --> 00:20:35.451
  • Adam ruined original intent
  • 00:20:37.887 --> 00:20:39.889
  • so God sent anotherAdam Jesus to restore
  • 00:20:39.922 --> 00:20:42.692
  • to original intent.
  • 00:20:42.725 --> 00:20:44.627
  • (ambient music)
  • 00:20:44.661 --> 00:20:47.330
  • I wonder what you were like.
  • 00:20:49.832 --> 00:20:52.135
  • You know, I've seenthem specialist
  • 00:20:56.172 --> 00:20:58.541
  • since I've moved outhere to Silicon Valley
  • 00:20:58.574 --> 00:21:00.643
  • we get some deep thinkers.
  • 00:21:00.677 --> 00:21:02.745
  • Alternative life andalternative realities
  • 00:21:03.913 --> 00:21:06.115
  • and it's not another,I believe in that
  • 00:21:06.149 --> 00:21:07.817
  • I believe there was a RonCarpenter without Jesus
  • 00:21:07.850 --> 00:21:11.754
  • and there's a RonCarpenter with Jesus
  • 00:21:11.788 --> 00:21:13.489
  • and they were two tracks.
  • 00:21:13.523 --> 00:21:15.024
  • (ambient music)
  • 00:21:15.058 --> 00:21:17.727
  • And maybe you feel likeyou're living almost
  • 00:21:19.028 --> 00:21:21.364
  • in an alternative realitybecause a few decisions here
  • 00:21:21.397 --> 00:21:24.100
  • a few decisions there.
  • 00:21:24.133 --> 00:21:25.335
  • I was getting my haircut and as you know,
  • 00:21:25.368 --> 00:21:29.072
  • there is a huge homelessproblem in California
  • 00:21:29.105 --> 00:21:33.476
  • and where I was getting myhaircut the barber said,
  • 00:21:33.509 --> 00:21:35.211
  • "I came in this morningthere was a homeless lady
  • 00:21:35.244 --> 00:21:37.013
  • "sleeping on my step."
  • 00:21:37.046 --> 00:21:38.681
  • I said, what did you do?
  • 00:21:38.715 --> 00:21:40.717
  • And I said, because somuch of this is new to me
  • 00:21:42.118 --> 00:21:43.920
  • because it's a lotcolder weather backwhere I used to live,
  • 00:21:43.953 --> 00:21:46.756
  • so here, the weather's warm
  • 00:21:46.789 --> 00:21:49.058
  • and so many homelessmigrating to this area.
  • 00:21:49.092 --> 00:21:52.628
  • I said, what did you do, sir?
  • 00:21:52.662 --> 00:21:55.565
  • He said, "I let her geta good night's sleep
  • 00:21:55.598 --> 00:21:57.633
  • "and then I askedher would she leave."
  • 00:21:57.667 --> 00:21:59.736
  • I said, I guess that'sa good way to handle it.
  • 00:21:59.769 --> 00:22:01.971
  • And they looked at me
  • 00:22:02.004 --> 00:22:03.206
  • and I don't know ifhe's a Christian or not.
  • 00:22:03.239 --> 00:22:04.707
  • He said, "I look at peoplelike that and I realize
  • 00:22:04.741 --> 00:22:08.778
  • "a bad career move here,a bad career move there,
  • 00:22:10.012 --> 00:22:12.615
  • "one or two wrong decisionsand I could be right there."
  • 00:22:12.648 --> 00:22:15.318
  • And I thought, you're right.
  • 00:22:15.351 --> 00:22:17.687
  • And I wonder how many ofyou were supposed to be here
  • 00:22:19.088 --> 00:22:23.493
  • but one or two things hadyou now you're living here.
  • 00:22:24.927 --> 00:22:29.198
  • (ambient music)
  • 00:22:29.232 --> 00:22:31.901
  • Jesus came to restoreoriginal intent.
  • 00:22:36.773 --> 00:22:39.942
  • I'm meant to do it today, butI just took a different route.
  • 00:22:42.178 --> 00:22:46.282
  • I'm going to come back next week
  • 00:22:46.315 --> 00:22:48.251
  • and I'm going to walkyou through the process
  • 00:22:48.284 --> 00:22:52.288
  • of how to recoverfrom a mistake.
  • 00:22:52.321 --> 00:22:55.091
  • I don't want you to miss it.
  • 00:22:57.193 --> 00:23:00.730
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:00.763 --> 00:23:03.266
  • - You know, like always,like every preacher
  • 00:23:30.460 --> 00:23:32.528
  • I wish I had alittle bit more time
  • 00:23:32.562 --> 00:23:33.896
  • but that's all I cando with that right now.
  • 00:23:33.930 --> 00:23:35.164
  • But we got a lot morewhere that came from.
  • 00:23:35.198 --> 00:23:35.865
  • Happy new year.
  • 00:23:35.898 --> 00:23:36.732
  • We're into a new year.
  • 00:23:39.035 --> 00:23:40.303
  • I don't know. (chuckles)
  • 00:23:40.336 --> 00:23:41.871
  • I haven't talked to everybodyall around the world
  • 00:23:41.904 --> 00:23:44.373
  • but I don't know how sadeverybody was to see 2020 leave.
  • 00:23:44.407 --> 00:23:49.412
  • We certainly hopethat 2021 in God
  • 00:23:50.580 --> 00:23:53.382
  • are going to bring greaterthings. But you know what?
  • 00:23:53.416 --> 00:23:54.817
  • God took care of us.
  • 00:23:54.851 --> 00:23:56.252
  • God healed many of us.God provided for us.
  • 00:23:56.285 --> 00:23:59.856
  • We're still here.We're still here.
  • 00:23:59.889 --> 00:24:02.758
  • And there's somethat can't say that.
  • 00:24:02.792 --> 00:24:05.061
  • There's some that havewent through things
  • 00:24:05.094 --> 00:24:07.129
  • less than we've beenthrough and didn't make it,
  • 00:24:07.163 --> 00:24:09.532
  • but God has sustainedus, sustained us people,
  • 00:24:09.565 --> 00:24:11.834
  • brought us to this place.
  • 00:24:11.868 --> 00:24:13.035
  • You may have cried alittle more than normal.
  • 00:24:13.069 --> 00:24:14.737
  • You may have been locked ina little more than normal.
  • 00:24:14.770 --> 00:24:16.772
  • Your life may shifted andchanged more than normal
  • 00:24:16.806 --> 00:24:19.242
  • but God was workingthe whole time.
  • 00:24:19.275 --> 00:24:21.277
  • You may not see the fruitof it yet but hang on
  • 00:24:21.310 --> 00:24:23.946
  • because it always startsinside then later on.
  • 00:24:23.980 --> 00:24:27.617
  • You'll see thefruit of it outside.
  • 00:24:27.650 --> 00:24:29.552
  • I want to thank youfor being with us
  • 00:24:29.585 --> 00:24:31.153
  • and I want to speaka minute to those

  • who've been our covenantpartners, some for weeks,
  • 00:24:33.623 --> 00:24:35.958
  • some for months, some foryears, some for decades
  • 00:24:35.992 --> 00:24:38.160
  • we've been doing this since1998, I'm aging myself.
  • 00:24:38.194 --> 00:24:41.697
  • And there've been people,
  • 00:24:41.731 --> 00:24:43.766
  • an ever growing number ofpeople called covenant partners,
  • 00:24:43.799 --> 00:24:46.168
  • because you notice we didn'tshow any advertisements.
  • 00:24:46.202 --> 00:24:48.804
  • We didn't sell any adsbecause we are viewer
  • 00:24:48.838 --> 00:24:51.941
  • and listener supported.
  • 00:24:51.974 --> 00:24:53.209
  • I would love to addyou to that number.
  • 00:24:53.242 --> 00:24:54.977
  • Was this a blessing?

  • The only thing, the oneprinciple I live by,
  • 00:24:56.212 --> 00:24:58.180
  • "Bless the thingthat blesses you."

  • If you were blessed by it
  • 00:25:00.616 --> 00:25:02.084
  • would you consider turningaround and being a blessing?
  • 00:25:02.118 --> 00:25:04.053
  • It takes a lot of verydedicated, lot of very skilled,
  • 00:25:04.086 --> 00:25:06.923
  • lot of very gifted people
  • 00:25:06.956 --> 00:25:08.524
  • to get this to whereveryou are right now.
  • 00:25:08.558 --> 00:25:12.295
  • I never knew until Istarted doing TV myself.
  • 00:25:12.328 --> 00:25:14.630
  • It's a lot more thanputting the camera mesh
  • 00:25:14.664 --> 00:25:17.600
  • and record and talking on it,it's a whole lot involved.
  • 00:25:17.633 --> 00:25:20.870
  • And you know what?
  • 00:25:20.903 --> 00:25:22.071
  • We believe that Goddoes want us to do that
  • 00:25:22.104 --> 00:25:24.974
  • but do it at the highest level.
  • 00:25:25.007 --> 00:25:26.976
  • Whatever the world does
  • 00:25:27.009 --> 00:25:28.344
  • we believe God wantsus to do it better
  • 00:25:28.377 --> 00:25:29.845
  • because we're His people.
