  • Coming up next on, "Changing Your World."
  • 00:00:05.150 --> 00:00:07.190
  • Creflo Dollar: It is an insult to God for us to think
  • 00:00:08.050 --> 00:00:11.100
  • that we can become more godly by our own discipline
  • 00:00:11.110 --> 00:00:15.010
  • and by our own self-effort.
  • 00:00:15.020 --> 00:00:17.030
  • In other words, you discipline yourself to pray,
  • 00:00:17.040 --> 00:00:20.230
  • and it's good to pray, but you think that,
  • 00:00:20.240 --> 00:00:22.250
  • by your own disciplines, you become more godly.
  • 00:00:22.260 --> 00:00:25.260
  • You think that without God, "I can discipline myself
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:29.010
  • to become more godly," and you think through your self-effort,
  • 00:00:29.020 --> 00:00:32.000
  • that it's what you can do to make yourself more godly,
  • 00:00:32.010 --> 00:00:34.270
  • and it is an insult to God because what you're saying is,
  • 00:00:34.280 --> 00:00:38.020
  • "I don't need him to accomplish those things."
  • 00:00:38.030 --> 00:00:40.080
  • female announcer: Calling all radical women,
  • 00:00:41.150 --> 00:00:43.070

  • This is your world
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:14.210
  • so let's vow to make it a better place
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:19.130
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:19.140 --> 00:01:24.200
  • your love is here to stay
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:27.160
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life
  • 00:01:27.170 --> 00:01:31.080
  • Oh, let his love shine bright in you
  • 00:01:31.090 --> 00:01:35.190
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace
  • 00:01:35.200 --> 00:01:38.230
  • so we embrace your love today
  • 00:01:38.240 --> 00:01:42.080
  • We are changed
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:46.090
  • Creflo: Turn to two people and tell 'em,
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:50.100
  • "Have faith in God."
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:57.050
  • Now, I wanna take you-- I timed it last night at home.
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:02:01.260
  • It'll take about 10, 15 minutes to go through the garden.
  • 00:02:01.270 --> 00:02:06.140
  • So let's go to Genesis chapter 2,
  • 00:02:06.150 --> 00:02:09.030
  • verses 8 through 9, and then verses 16 and 17.
  • 00:02:09.040 --> 00:02:13.190
  • Let's look at these two trees in the garden and see what happens,
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:17.150
  • see where a lot of things originated from.
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:20.290
  • If you're ready, say, "Amen."
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:23.080
  • Now, verse 8 and 9, let's read verse 8 and 9 out loud together.
  • 00:02:23.090 --> 00:02:27.060
  • Ready? Read.
  • 00:02:27.070 --> 00:02:28.270
  • "And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden,
  • 00:02:28.280 --> 00:02:32.090
  • and there he put the man whom he had formed."
  • 00:02:32.100 --> 00:02:36.200
  • Verse 9, "And out of the ground made the Lord God
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:40.290
  • to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight,
  • 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:45.250
  • and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:51.090
  • the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil."
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:55.270
  • Now, notice, he located the tree of life.
  • 00:02:55.280 --> 00:02:58.250
  • He said the tree of life was in the center of the garden.
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:03:02.090
  • He used the word "midst."
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:04.010
  • Comes from a Hebrew word, "tavek," which means
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:06.130
  • the tree of life was the center of everything.
  • 00:03:06.140 --> 00:03:09.150
  • And he gave specific location where that was.
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:13.040
  • All right, now look at verse 16 and 17.
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:17.090
  • He says, "And the Lord God commanded the man,
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:19.190
  • saying, 'Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat.'"
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:27.240
  • So God says--and think of that.
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:29.110
  • You can eat from every tree of the garden.
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.040
  • Verse 17, "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
  • 00:03:32.050 --> 00:03:36.190
  • thou shalt not eat of it, for in the day that thou eatest thereof
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.160
  • thou shalt surely die."
  • 00:03:39.170 --> 00:03:41.200
  • The word "die" here is translated, "separate."
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:45.020
  • You're gonna be separated.
  • 00:03:45.030 --> 00:03:46.200
  • There's somethin' you gon' be separated from if you eat
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:50.030
  • from this tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:03:50.040 --> 00:03:54.110
  • Now, one of the things I want you to understand is that,
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:58.110
  • you know, everything in the garden was good.
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:04:06.030
  • Sometimes we have this thing of the tree of the knowledge of
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:09.240
  • good and evil that was bad, and the tree of life that was good.
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:12.190
  • No, everything was good.
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.210
  • Everything was good, except the tree of the knowledge
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:18.160
  • of good and evil, it wasn't good for man.
  • 00:04:18.170 --> 00:04:22.020
  • Everything in the garden was good except that tree
  • 00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:26.070
  • of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:27.230
  • It wasn't good for man.
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:30.110
  • That's why God says, "Eat of every tree of the garden,
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:32.240
  • but don't eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil."
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:36.160
  • Why?
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:37.260
  • That's not good for man.
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:39.090
  • It's good, but it's not good for man.
  • 00:04:39.100 --> 00:04:42.140
  • Does everybody understand what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:44.090
  • It's not like you can extract the evil part of that fruit
  • 00:04:44.100 --> 00:04:48.170
  • from the good part, and vice versa.
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:51.130
  • The tree was made up of good and evil.
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:56.130
  • When you eat the fruit, you get good and evil.
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:58.220
  • It's a package deal.
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:01.120
  • He said, "That's not good for man."
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:05.030
  • I wanna know why having the knowledge
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:07.240
  • of good and evil wasn't good for man.
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:11.160
  • Woo, man, I'mma get excited on this.
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:14.020
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:15.160
  • Let's go to Genesis 3:1 through 5.
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:18.260
  • Genesis 3:1 through 5.
  • 00:05:18.270 --> 00:05:21.280
  • Now, in this he says, "Now the serpent was more subtle
  • 00:05:21.290 --> 00:05:27.000
  • than any beasts of the field which the Lord God had made.
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:30.270
  • And he said, the serpent said unto the woman,
  • 00:05:30.280 --> 00:05:34.260
  • 'Yea, hath God said, "Ye shall not eat
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:37.290
  • of every tree of the garden?'"
  • 00:05:38.000 --> 00:05:40.040
  • Wait a minute.
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:41.160
  • Is that what God said?
  • 00:05:41.170 --> 00:05:42.290
  • He misquoted God, right?
  • 00:05:43.000 --> 00:05:44.240
  • God says, "You can eat of every tree of the garden,"
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:48.080
  • but he misquoting God.
  • 00:05:48.090 --> 00:05:50.050
  • Now watch this: Verse 2, "And the woman said unto the serpent,
  • 00:05:50.060 --> 00:05:53.000
  • 'We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden.'"
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:57.190
  • Watch, verse 3, "But of the fruit of the tree which is
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:06:01.050
  • in the midst of the garden, God had said, 'You shall not
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:04.120
  • eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:07.150
  • Now, she just misquoted God.
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:09.230
  • Why?
  • 00:06:09.240 --> 00:06:11.110
  • Because the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:13.200
  • was not in the midst of the garden.
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:16.100
  • The tree of life was in the midst of the garden.
  • 00:06:16.110 --> 00:06:19.200
  • So you have the woman misquoting God,
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:21.280
  • and you have Satan misquoting God.
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:26.240
  • And so, you see here truth being twisted.
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:31.130
  • We now see the decline of innocence.
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:34.040
  • Truth is now being twisted, and, well,
  • 00:06:34.050 --> 00:06:37.020
  • you know what happens when truth is twisted?
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:39.160
  • Freedom begins to slip away.
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:43.250
  • The liberty and the freedom that you had begins to slip away
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:48.000
  • because truth is being twisted.
  • 00:06:48.010 --> 00:06:50.100
  • My God, if it slipped away in the Garden of Eden,
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:53.240
  • imagine the freedom and the liberty that has slipped away
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:57.140
  • because the church has twisted so much of the truth.
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:07:02.060
  • If you understand that say, "Amen."
  • 00:07:02.070 --> 00:07:05.030
  • I want you to know, ladies and gentlemen, it is an insult.
  • 00:07:05.040 --> 00:07:09.060
  • It is an insult to God when we think that we can become more
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:16.190
  • godly by our own discipline and by our own self-effort.
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:24.100
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:25.210
  • What you're about to see--and I want--it is an insult to God for
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:29.060
  • us to think that we can become more godly by our own discipline
  • 00:07:29.070 --> 00:07:33.290
  • and by our own self-effort.
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:36.000
  • In other words, you discipline yourself to pray,
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:39.050
  • and it's good to pray, but you think that,
  • 00:07:39.060 --> 00:07:41.100
  • by your own disciplines, you become more godly.
  • 00:07:41.110 --> 00:07:43.150
  • You think that without God, "I can discipline myself
  • 00:07:43.160 --> 00:07:47.240
  • to become more godly," and you think through your self-effort
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:50.230
  • that it's what you can do to make yourself more godly,
  • 00:07:50.240 --> 00:07:53.260
  • and it is an insult to God because what you're saying is,
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:56.230
  • "I don't need him to accomplish those things."
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:08:00.040
  • Everybody else understand that now?
  • 00:08:00.050 --> 00:08:02.130
  • Now, so I believe that we bought the lie, the lie here.
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:07.270
  • They bought this lie.
  • 00:08:07.280 --> 00:08:09.070
  • Here's what lie they bought.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:10.290
  • They bought the lie of believing that you have to do something
  • 00:08:11.000 --> 00:08:19.040
  • to be what you already are-- the lie,
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:25.090
  • "I got to do somethin' to be what I already am," the lie that
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:30.210
  • "I got to do somethin' to get what I already have," the lie,
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:36.150
  • "I got to do somethin' in order to be what he already made me.
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:42.180
  • I got to do somethin' to get what he's already provided."
  • 00:08:42.190 --> 00:08:46.170
  • Isn't that what most of the church is?
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:49.020
  • Most of the churches come to church so you can learn
  • 00:08:49.030 --> 00:08:51.130
  • all the things you gotta do to be who you already are.
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:57.130
  • See, I don't need to be no more gooder than what I am right now
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:09:01.090
  • because I'm already been made righteous,
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:03.280
  • so me being gooder is not gon' make me--
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:07.140
  • I'm already righteous. I'm already righteous.
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:09.280
  • You remember the story I told you when I was prayin'
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:11.250
  • to be anointed, and Taffi was cookin' the spaghetti,
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:13.260
  • and the--I was already anointed 'cause he anointed me,
  • 00:09:13.270 --> 00:09:17.010
  • but the lie is you gotta do somethin' to be
  • 00:09:17.020 --> 00:09:19.280
  • who he's already made ya.
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:23.080
  • Say out loud, "I'm the righteousness of God."
  • 00:09:23.090 --> 00:09:26.120
  • And, yet you go to church and make a list of ten other things
  • 00:09:26.130 --> 00:09:29.020
  • you need to do to be who you already are.
  • 00:09:29.030 --> 00:09:34.080
  • Say, "I'm already delivered."
  • 00:09:34.090 --> 00:09:37.090
  • Say, "I'm already prosperous."
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:39.290
  • Say, "I'm already healed."
  • 00:09:40.000 --> 00:09:42.130
  • But you bought the lie that you gotta do somethin' to get
  • 00:09:42.140 --> 00:09:45.180
  • what you already got.
  • 00:09:45.190 --> 00:09:50.210
  • Boy, that's religion at its best.
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:53.290
  • Are ya listenin' to me?
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:56.150
  • So true Christianity is receiving the gift
  • 00:09:56.160 --> 00:10:00.120
  • of righteousness and walking by faith in that gift.
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:08.040
  • Receiving the gift of righteousness,
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:10.060
  • true Christianity.
  • 00:10:10.070 --> 00:10:12.080
  • True Christianity is not all of the stuff that you think
  • 00:10:12.090 --> 00:10:14.220
  • you've got to do.
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:16.100
  • No, true Christianity is receiving the gift,
  • 00:10:16.110 --> 00:10:18.260
  • and a gift is somethin' that's not earned, right?
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:21.020
  • Receiving the gift and having faith in the gift
  • 00:10:21.030 --> 00:10:24.110
  • that was presented to you.
  • 00:10:24.120 --> 00:10:25.210
  • I am the righteousness of God.
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:27.010
  • I receive that right now, and I have faith
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:29.000
  • that I'm the righteousness of God.
  • 00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:30.150
  • That's Christianity.
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:32.030
  • Christianity is not all of this stuff you've been taught--
  • 00:10:32.040 --> 00:10:34.070
  • people told you, you had to do all this stuff to do that.
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:37.210
  • "You got to do this," "You gotta do this," "You gotta do this,"
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:39.160
  • "You gotta do that," and you become--you have
  • 00:10:39.170 --> 00:10:41.230
  • a demand mentality rather than having a supply mentality,
  • 00:10:41.240 --> 00:10:50.250
  • and under this Gospel of grace, it's about supply.
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:54.020
  • It's about Jesus being your supply house.
  • 00:10:54.030 --> 00:10:56.240
  • Just say that.
  • 00:10:56.250 --> 00:10:58.050
  • Say, "Jesus is my supply house."
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:11:01.050
  • But you keep operating with a demand mentality.
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:04.190
  • "The demand has to be met before I can get the supply."
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:10.070
  • That's a lie.
  • 00:11:10.080 --> 00:11:11.180
  • That's the biggest lie in church today,
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:13.120
  • and they gon' write me nasty letters because
  • 00:11:13.130 --> 00:11:15.080
  • I am telling you it was a lie.
  • 00:11:15.090 --> 00:11:17.110
  • You do not--that is not God, but that's what happens
  • 00:11:17.120 --> 00:11:20.120
  • in that garden.
  • 00:11:20.130 --> 00:11:22.060
  • You got those two trees in the garden,
  • 00:11:22.070 --> 00:11:23.260
  • ladies and gentlemen.
  • 00:11:23.270 --> 00:11:25.100
  • You got those two trees in the garden.
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:26.280
  • You got the tree of life, which represents Jesus,
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:29.210
  • which will bring you to Christ's righteousness.
  • 00:11:29.220 --> 00:11:32.020
  • You have the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:34.110
  • which represents the law, which will eventually bring you
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:37.260
  • to self-righteousness.
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:39.260
  • Those two scenarios were right there in the garden that day.
  • 00:11:39.270 --> 00:11:43.240
  • If you understand me, say, "Amen."
  • 00:11:43.250 --> 00:11:46.120
  • Now look at Genesis 3:6 through 11.
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:50.120
  • Genesis 3:6 through 11, and then I'll begin to preach.
  • 00:11:50.130 --> 00:11:55.200
  • Hallelujah, you're gon' get free today because I know,
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:59.290
  • in your mind, you're like, well, you gotta do somethin',
  • 00:12:00.020 --> 00:12:03.130
  • and I'mma show you exactly what you got to do.
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:08.270
  • Verse 6, "And when the woman saw that the tree was good
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:13.030
  • for food--" underline "good for food"--
  • 00:12:13.040 --> 00:12:16.070
  • "and that it was pleasant to the eye--"
  • 00:12:16.080 --> 00:12:19.020
  • underline "pleasant to the eye"--
  • 00:12:19.030 --> 00:12:21.150
  • "and that it was a tree to be desired to make one wise--"
  • 00:12:21.160 --> 00:12:26.160
  • underline "make one wise"-- "she took of the fruit thereof,
  • 00:12:26.170 --> 00:12:33.180
  • and then she ate, and she gave also to her husband with her,
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:37.190
  • and he did eat."
  • 00:12:37.200 --> 00:12:40.280
  • Now, notice what she says.
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:42.140
  • She looked at it.
  • 00:12:42.150 --> 00:12:43.240
  • Go back to the first part of that, verse 6.
  • 00:12:43.250 --> 00:12:45.220
  • Notice what she said.
  • 00:12:45.230 --> 00:12:47.020
  • "And the woman saw that the tree was good for food--"
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:52.280
  • lust of the eye or the lust of the flesh--
  • 00:12:52.290 --> 00:12:58.020
  • "and that it was pleasant to the eye--"
  • 00:12:58.030 --> 00:13:00.060
  • lust of the eye-- "that it was--make one wise."
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:04.200
  • Pride of life.
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:06.220
  • Now, where'd that come from?
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:08.040
  • Well look at 1 John 2:15.
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:10.150
  • 1 John 2:15.
  • 00:13:10.160 --> 00:13:12.230
  • Get this bit, and then, we're ready to go.
  • 00:13:12.240 --> 00:13:15.020
  • If you can get this, we're ready to go.
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:17.130
  • Hallelujah, hallelujah, praise God.
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:21.190
  • "And when the woman saw--" go to 1 John 2:15.
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:26.190
  • 1 John 2:15.
  • 00:13:26.200 --> 00:13:28.260
  • Now, if you'll notice here, it's gonna explain to you
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:34.030
  • what happens when someone has the love of the world
  • 00:13:34.040 --> 00:13:39.170
  • and not the love of the Father.
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:41.050
  • He says here, "Love not the world,
  • 00:13:41.060 --> 00:13:44.030
  • neither the things that are in the world.
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:47.050
  • If any man loves the world, the love of the Father
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:49.040
  • is not in him.
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:50.140
  • Now, the first thing he says is "If you love the world,
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:52.140
  • the reason why you love the world is because the love
  • 00:13:52.150 --> 00:13:54.050
  • of the Father is not in you," a'ight?
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:57.170
  • So, next thing is all this talk about, "Love not the world,
  • 00:13:57.180 --> 00:14:01.170
  • neither the things that are in the world.
  • 00:14:01.180 --> 00:14:03.110
  • If any man love the world, the love of the Father
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:05.160
  • is not in him."
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:06.280
  • What is it that causes a man to love the world?
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:08.290
  • The love of the Father is not in him.
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:10.110
  • Well, what's the world?
  • 00:14:10.120 --> 00:14:11.220
  • Look at the next verse.
  • 00:14:11.230 --> 00:14:14.140
  • "Love not the world."
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.260
  • Well, I'll just tell you.
  • 00:14:15.270 --> 00:14:17.060
  • He says, the love of the world, "For all that is in the world,
  • 00:14:17.070 --> 00:14:19.210
  • the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,
  • 00:14:19.220 --> 00:14:23.260
  • the pride of life, it's not of the Father.
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:28.080
  • It is the world."
  • 00:14:28.090 --> 00:14:30.090
  • You know what he's saying?
  • 00:14:30.100 --> 00:14:31.190
  • When you no longer believe the love that God has for you,
  • 00:14:31.200 --> 00:14:36.210
  • you're going to turn your back on God,
  • 00:14:36.220 --> 00:14:40.100
  • and you're gonna be moved by the lust of the flesh,
  • 00:14:40.110 --> 00:14:43.120
  • the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
  • 00:14:43.130 --> 00:14:47.160
  • Not believe in the love of God equals loving the world.
  • 00:14:47.170 --> 00:14:50.280
  • Not believing the love of God equals loving the world,
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:54.160
  • not believin' that God loves you enough to provide all
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:57.290
  • of the things that you're tryin' to get through the world,
  • 00:14:58.000 --> 00:15:00.240
  • not believing that God cares for you enough to heal you,
  • 00:15:00.250 --> 00:15:03.210
  • loves you enough to deliver you, loves you enough to set you free
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:07.010
  • from that--see, when you begin to look at all the stuff goin'
  • 00:15:07.020 --> 00:15:09.240
  • on in your life, you wonder, "Does God love me?"
  • 00:15:09.250 --> 00:15:13.170
  • And when you don't believe in the love of God,
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:16.090
  • he says you will turn to the love of the world
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:20.020
  • because you don't believe in the love of God,
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:22.050
  • and the result of you turning from the love of God and
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:26.260
  • not believing the love of God-- but now you're gonna just--
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:30.070
  • you're gonna begin to believe the love of the world,
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:32.230
  • and the result of it is gonna be shame.
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:36.020
  • The result of it is gonna be shame.
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:38.200
  • Now look at Genesis 3:7 through 11.
  • 00:15:38.210 --> 00:15:45.130
  • Genesis 3:7 through 11.
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:47.280
  • Go back there, Genesis 3:7 through 11.
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:52.010
  • Now, "And they eye of them were both opened."
  • 00:15:52.020 --> 00:15:55.090
  • Both of their eyes were opened.
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:57.060
  • "And they knew that they were naked."
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:16:01.190
  • Now, see what happened?
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:03.140
  • They ate from the tree that was not good for man,
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:07.190
  • and Satan told them, "Your eyes will be opened,"
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:10.080
  • but what was their eyes opened to?
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:12.010
  • Shame.
  • 00:16:12.020 --> 00:16:13.280
  • Just for a moment, they turn away from the love of God,
  • 00:16:13.290 --> 00:16:18.010
  • and the love of the world came in,
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:20.120
  • and their eyes we're opened to shame.
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:23.190
  • Turned away from God's love, and their eyes were opened to shame.
  • 00:16:23.200 --> 00:16:27.140
  • What happened? They were naked.
  • 00:16:27.150 --> 00:16:30.030
  • That which clothed them, they were separated from, die,
  • 00:16:30.040 --> 00:16:36.060
  • "and they sewed fig leaves."
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:38.160
  • That's self-righteousness.
  • 00:16:38.170 --> 00:16:40.110
  • So now instead of looking to God to clothe them,
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:43.150
  • they began to look to their own efforts to clothe them,
  • 00:16:43.160 --> 00:16:46.220
  • and they sewed fig leaves together.
  • 00:16:46.230 --> 00:16:50.110
  • Wow, "and they made themselves aprons."
  • 00:16:50.120 --> 00:16:55.220
  • Self-righteousness comes in as a result of turning away from God.
  • 00:16:55.230 --> 00:17:03.180
  • Now, how does all of what happened in the garden,
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:06.110
  • all of what originated in the garden,
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:09.060
  • two trees in the garden, one tree, the tree of life,
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:12.060
  • represented Jesus Christ.
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:14.100
  • The other tree, the tree of the knowledge of good--
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:16.190
  • the tree of Life was the center, the midst.
  • 00:17:16.200 --> 00:17:19.060
  • Everything surrounded it.
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:20.270
  • Just like today, same thing is with Jesus.
  • 00:17:20.280 --> 00:17:23.110
  • Everything surrounds.
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:24.210
  • See, people talkin' about they don't believe Jesus,
  • 00:17:24.220 --> 00:17:26.010
  • celebrate Christmas.
  • 00:17:26.020 --> 00:17:27.110
  • Check that out.
  • 00:17:27.120 --> 00:17:28.210
  • Everything surround him.
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:30.010
  • "You don't even believe in Jesus.
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:31.110
  • Why you celebratin' Christmas?"
  • 00:17:31.120 --> 00:17:32.210
  • "Well, praise the Lord."
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:36.160
  • A'ight?
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:38.040
  • And then that other tree in the garden,
  • 00:17:38.050 --> 00:17:39.170
  • which represents the law, it represents self-righteousness.
  • 00:17:39.180 --> 00:17:44.080
  • He said, that's not good for you.
  • 00:17:44.090 --> 00:17:46.190
  • "To have the knowledge of good and evil," he said,
  • 00:17:46.200 --> 00:17:48.190
  • "that's not good for you.
  • 00:17:48.200 --> 00:17:50.080
  • I want you to be like you were before you ate of the tree
  • 00:17:50.090 --> 00:17:54.100
  • I told you not to eat of."
  • 00:17:54.110 --> 00:17:56.060
  • And how were they?
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:57.230
  • They only knew God.
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:18:01.090
  • They didn't know or have the knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:18:01.100 --> 00:18:05.020
  • They only knew God.
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:09.100
  • Everybody got that?
  • 00:18:09.110 --> 00:18:11.030
  • Now, let's go over here to New Covenant,
  • 00:18:11.040 --> 00:18:13.260
  • and let's apply what originated in the garden
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:17.020
  • to what's happening today.
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:19.110
  • Look at Galatians chapter 3, verse 12.
  • 00:18:19.120 --> 00:18:23.040
  • Galatians chapter 3, in verse 12.
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:25.290
  • This was pretty--I wouldn't say "shocking,"
  • 00:18:26.000 --> 00:18:30.020
  • but it got my attention.
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:33.280
  • So we know the law that came by Moses,
  • 00:18:33.290 --> 00:18:37.260
  • 613 commandments.
  • 00:18:37.270 --> 00:18:39.280
  • Ten Commandments were written on stone.
  • 00:18:39.290 --> 00:18:42.250
  • Moral law was on those stones, but morality would not be
  • 00:18:42.260 --> 00:18:47.070
  • successful in a person's life through rule-keeping.
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:51.270
  • You didn't need to know what was good and evil,
  • 00:18:51.280 --> 00:18:55.240
  • what was right and wrong.
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:57.110
  • You just needed to know God.
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:59.260
  • And so he says-- and this is so amazing--
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:02.290
  • "The law is not of faith."
  • 00:19:03.000 --> 00:19:07.120
  • "The just shall live by faith," but it says,
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:11.010
  • "The law is not of faith."
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:13.100
  • "The just shall live by faith, but the law is not of faith."
  • 00:19:13.110 --> 00:19:16.260
  • Because the just should be living by this new covenant.
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:20.070
  • The just should be living by this grace.
  • 00:19:20.080 --> 00:19:23.070
  • The just, those who have been declared righteous by God
  • 00:19:23.080 --> 00:19:25.180
  • and those who have been made righteous because of their faith
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:29.260
  • in what Jesus has done, they live by faith,
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:33.050
  • but what happens when a person is trying to live the law
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:37.080
  • of Moses by faith?
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:40.190
  • He said, "The law is not of faith."
  • 00:19:40.200 --> 00:19:44.010
  • So let's talk about practical-- what the law does.
  • 00:19:44.020 --> 00:19:47.110
  • The law is demands that need to be met.
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:54.250
  • The law demands this in order for you to get that.
  • 00:19:54.260 --> 00:19:58.260
  • The law is conditional.
  • 00:19:58.270 --> 00:20:01.140
  • You getting blessed under the law is conditional.
  • 00:20:01.150 --> 00:20:04.290
  • It is based on whether or not you can meet the demand.
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:09.060
  • If you don't meet the demand under the law,
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:12.130
  • you don't get what was promised under the law.
  • 00:20:12.140 --> 00:20:16.200
  • Are you hearin' what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:18.210
  • So that's what it means, "a man who lives by the law."
  • 00:20:18.220 --> 00:20:21.020
  • So it's real simple.
  • 00:20:21.030 --> 00:20:22.170
  • If you keep the demands of the law, you get blessed.
  • 00:20:22.180 --> 00:20:26.020
  • If you don't keep the demands of the law, you get cursed.
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:29.090
  • And what happens if you go to a church and all they've
  • 00:20:29.100 --> 00:20:31.040
  • ever taught you is the law of Moses and the Ten Commandments,
  • 00:20:31.050 --> 00:20:34.190
  • and you're so busy tryin' to keep the law of Moses and the
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:36.260
  • Ten Commandments, you have gotten proficient at performing
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:40.090
  • and earning something when God is tryin' to say,
  • 00:20:40.100 --> 00:20:45.000
  • "No, no, no, no, no, you don't need faith to operate the law.
  • 00:20:45.010 --> 00:20:49.010
  • If you just meet the requirements and the demands,
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:51.280
  • you get it."
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:53.230
  • So the law is not of faith.
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:57.160
  • So what happens if a Christian person is trying to live their
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:21:00.170
  • life by the law of Moses and saying they're living by faith?
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:05.140
  • Here's what they're doin'.
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:07.050
  • They're saying, "I have faith in my performance.
  • 00:21:07.060 --> 00:21:11.010
  • I have my faith in my ability to keep the demands."
  • 00:21:11.020 --> 00:21:15.280
  • And Jesus is saying, "You don't need faith to do that.
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:21.150
  • All you got to do is fulfill the requirement of the demand,
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:24.090
  • and you get the blessin'," and we still doin'
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:26.060
  • the same thing today.
  • 00:21:26.070 --> 00:21:27.160
  • So we're not having faith in God.
  • 00:21:27.170 --> 00:21:29.130
  • We're having faith in our ability to meet the requirements
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:34.030
  • of what was demanded, and that's what church has become.
  • 00:21:34.040 --> 00:21:38.210
  • Church has become "Let's come to church so we can find out
  • 00:21:38.220 --> 00:21:42.050
  • what we got to do in order to get it."
  • 00:21:42.060 --> 00:21:45.140
  • Isn't that right? Isn't that right?
  • 00:21:45.150 --> 00:21:47.100
  • We took somethin' great like fasting.
  • 00:21:47.110 --> 00:21:48.230
  • "Let's fast so we can make God bless us."
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:52.130
  • And then we got so arrogant to say,
  • 00:21:52.140 --> 00:21:54.010
  • "Let's fast so we can make him move."
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:58.090
  • And we created performance-based Christianity and called it
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:22:02.110
  • "faith," and then we even said, "I have faith in my faith."
  • 00:22:02.120 --> 00:22:09.070
  • Broken down and translated, you're saying,
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:10.280
  • "I have faith in what I can do."
  • 00:22:10.290 --> 00:22:14.270
  • Your faith is what you can do.
  • 00:22:14.280 --> 00:22:17.180
  • And he is saying, "No, that's not good for man."
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:21.270
  • I need you to have faith in God, not have faith
  • 00:22:21.280 --> 00:22:26.200
  • in your performance of the law.
  • 00:22:26.210 --> 00:22:30.110
  • I don't know how many of you were here during
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:32.080
  • the Grace Convention.
  • 00:22:32.090 --> 00:22:33.280
  • I remember Mike Smith took a shocking turn in
  • 00:22:33.290 --> 00:22:37.050
  • one of his sessions and went to Hebrews chapter 11
  • 00:22:37.060 --> 00:22:39.270
  • of the heroes of faith.
  • 00:22:39.280 --> 00:22:41.110
  • Heroes of faith--and revealed that every one of those guys,
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:47.040
  • none of them had faith in the law because
  • 00:22:47.050 --> 00:22:50.110
  • the law was not yet written.
  • 00:22:50.120 --> 00:22:53.160
  • And then, when they saw Moses, we say,
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:55.040
  • "Aha, there was Moses," but that verse of Scripture
  • 00:22:55.050 --> 00:22:57.090
  • wasn't talkin' about Moses.
  • 00:22:57.100 --> 00:22:58.220
  • It was talkin' about Moses's parents,
  • 00:22:58.230 --> 00:23:01.060
  • how they use their faith.
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:03.140
  • Their faith was not in the law.
  • 00:23:03.150 --> 00:23:05.160
  • Their faith was in what God said.
  • 00:23:05.170 --> 00:23:08.280
  • God told 'em somethin', and they knew no law,
  • 00:23:08.290 --> 00:23:11.180
  • and their faith was in that.
  • 00:23:11.190 --> 00:23:13.230
  • Their faith was not in whether they've been good
  • 00:23:13.240 --> 00:23:16.020
  • or whether they've been bad or whether they qualified,
  • 00:23:16.030 --> 00:23:18.120
  • or whether they prayed long enough,
  • 00:23:18.130 --> 00:23:20.050
  • or whether they tithed long enough,
  • 00:23:20.060 --> 00:23:21.230
  • or whether they gave enough.
  • 00:23:21.240 --> 00:23:23.060
  • Their faith was in nothin' that they did.
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:25.030
  • Their faith was in God.
  • 00:23:25.040 --> 00:23:27.170
  • They didn't know no law, so they had nothin' else
  • 00:23:27.180 --> 00:23:30.140
  • to put their faith in except God.
  • 00:23:30.150 --> 00:23:33.150
  • "And the law is not faith, but the man that doeth them
  • 00:23:38.270 --> 00:23:42.190
  • shall live in them."
  • 00:23:42.200 --> 00:23:44.080
  • All right, now, watch the Scripture.
  • 00:23:44.090 --> 00:23:45.240
  • Blew my mind.
  • 00:23:45.250 --> 00:23:47.040
  • Romans 4:14. Romans 4:14.
  • 00:23:47.050 --> 00:23:50.100
  • Is everybody on the journey still?
  • 00:23:50.110 --> 00:23:52.040
  • It's gon be a great endin'. You on the journey?
  • 00:23:52.050 --> 00:23:54.190
  • Man, we are gonna have faith in God.
  • 00:23:54.200 --> 00:23:57.290
  • I say, "We're gon' have faith in God."
  • 00:23:58.000 --> 00:24:00.170
  • I said, "We're gon' have faith in God."
  • 00:24:01.020 --> 00:24:03.230
  • See, I have faith that I'm the righteousness of God,
  • 00:24:03.240 --> 00:24:06.070
  • not because of what I do or how I perform.
  • 00:24:06.080 --> 00:24:09.030
  • I have faith I'm the righteousness of God
  • 00:24:09.040 --> 00:24:11.040

  • 00:25:31.190 --> 00:25:34.190
  • are gathered together, God is in the midst of them,
  • 00:25:34.200 --> 00:25:37.210
  • and that's why it's good to pray with someone
  • 00:25:37.220 --> 00:25:40.170
  • who believes God's Word and can help encourage you.
  • 00:25:40.180 --> 00:25:44.150
  • Ladies and gentlemen, prayer changes things,
  • 00:25:44.160 --> 00:25:47.120
  • and I'd like to take this moment to pray with you right now.
  • 00:25:47.130 --> 00:25:51.280
  • And now, let's believe God.
  • 00:25:51.290 --> 00:25:53.140
  • Somebody says, "You don't even know what's goin' on with me."
  • 00:25:53.150 --> 00:25:55.080
  • Come on, let's just pray together.
  • 00:25:55.090 --> 00:25:57.120
  • Father, I thank you right now that those who are viewin'
  • 00:25:57.130 --> 00:26:00.250
  • this broadcast, that you are perfecting everything
  • 00:26:00.260 --> 00:26:03.240
  • that concerns them.
  • 00:26:03.250 --> 00:26:05.190
  • You know exactly what's goin' on,
  • 00:26:05.200 --> 00:26:07.120
  • and you've already made provisions for that situation.
  • 00:26:07.130 --> 00:26:11.150
  • So I am agreeing with them, and, Lord, we bring it to you,
  • 00:26:11.160 --> 00:26:15.120
  • and it's settled right now.
  • 00:26:15.130 --> 00:26:17.270
  • We're not after victory.
  • 00:26:17.280 --> 00:26:19.180
  • We already have victory, and we stand in that by faith,
  • 00:26:19.190 --> 00:26:22.290
  • in Jesus's name, amen.
  • 00:26:23.000 --> 00:26:25.220
  • Now, I'm believing with you, and you believe with me
  • 00:26:25.230 --> 00:26:27.270
  • that what we just prayed is manifesting in your life,
  • 00:26:27.280 --> 00:26:31.020
  • and all is well.
