  • If not, I got one for ya.
  • 00:01:38.411 --> 00:01:41.114
  • 3 John 2, I think before I left,we had a series goin' on takin'
  • 00:01:41.147 --> 00:01:50.490
  • authority over your emotions.
  • 00:01:50.523 --> 00:01:53.193
  • And I've had some timeto really think about it.
  • 00:01:53.226 --> 00:01:55.395
  • It is more critical than I everthought, and I'm gonna show you
  • 00:01:55.428 --> 00:02:02.001
  • some things tonight that it'sreally gonna really bless you,
  • 00:02:02.035 --> 00:02:06.306
  • and we're gonna really hang inhere because this is like--it's
  • 00:02:06.339 --> 00:02:12.345
  • what determines yourlife, to be honest with you.
  • 00:02:12.378 --> 00:02:14.547
  • Your whole life is gonna bebased on whether or not you can
  • 00:02:14.581 --> 00:02:19.185
  • control your emotions, or willyou allow them to control you?
  • 00:02:19.219 --> 00:02:24.424
  • So, we're talking about takingauthority over your emotions.
  • 00:02:24.457 --> 00:02:29.829
  • Now, emotions, that'ssomethin' we all have, amen?
  • 00:02:29.862 --> 00:02:33.299
  • We all have emotions, but, youknow, sometimes they have us,
  • 00:02:33.333 --> 00:02:36.436
  • and that's when itbecomes a problem.
  • 00:02:36.469 --> 00:02:38.805
  • We all have emotions, butsometimes they have us.
  • 00:02:38.838 --> 00:02:43.042
  • You know, we were designedby God to master life
  • 00:02:43.076 --> 00:02:47.647
  • rather than be mastered by life.
  • 00:02:47.680 --> 00:02:50.817
  • I want you to think aboutthat statement for a moment.
  • 00:02:50.850 --> 00:02:53.286
  • We were designed by God tomaster life, to have mastery
  • 00:02:53.319 --> 00:02:57.624
  • over life, rather thanto be mastered by life.
  • 00:02:57.657 --> 00:03:02.695
  • Life should not be happeningto you, and there are lots
  • 00:03:02.729 --> 00:03:07.300
  • of people that don't get that.
  • 00:03:07.333 --> 00:03:10.003
  • Our job is to master life.
  • 00:03:10.036 --> 00:03:11.771
  • I want you to just askyourself this question:
  • 00:03:11.804 --> 00:03:14.874
  • "Is life mastering me, or amI mastering life?"
  • 00:03:14.907 --> 00:03:22.715
  • See, one of the thingsthat I'm sure about
  • 00:03:22.749 --> 00:03:24.417
  • is that we were made in theimage of God for three things.
  • 00:03:24.450 --> 00:03:28.488
  • We were made in the imageof God to reflect God's love,
  • 00:03:28.521 --> 00:03:33.393
  • to reflect God's power,and to reflect God's authority.
  • 00:03:33.426 --> 00:03:38.765
  • We were made in the image of Godto reflect his love,
  • 00:03:38.798 --> 00:03:41.601
  • his power, his authority.
  • 00:03:41.634 --> 00:03:43.369
  • In fact, when God looksin the mirror, he sees us.
  • 00:03:43.403 --> 00:03:48.941
  • You gotta getahold of this, now.
  • 00:03:48.975 --> 00:03:51.544
  • We cannot allow religion to stopus from realizing who we are,
  • 00:03:51.577 --> 00:03:57.216
  • and yet the enemy is going tobe comin' after you every way
  • 00:03:57.250 --> 00:04:02.055
  • he can to get you tonot end up in the place
  • 00:04:02.088 --> 00:04:06.159
  • where God has calledyou to end up in.
  • 00:04:06.192 --> 00:04:09.662
  • This area of takin' authorityover your emotions,
  • 00:04:09.696 --> 00:04:12.398
  • it has everything to do with youreaching the very purpose
  • 00:04:12.432 --> 00:04:17.704
  • and the very call ofGod for your life.
  • 00:04:17.737 --> 00:04:20.540
  • And we're gonna have tounderstand how to take charge
  • 00:04:20.573 --> 00:04:24.177
  • over the emotions so that we canmaster life instead
  • 00:04:24.210 --> 00:04:29.148
  • of allowing life to master us.
  • 00:04:29.182 --> 00:04:30.516
  • And there are a lot of people,a bunch of people
  • 00:04:30.550 --> 00:04:32.952
  • in this world that are beingmastered by life.
  • 00:04:32.985 --> 00:04:35.121
  • And God did not create youto be mastered by your life.
  • 00:04:35.154 --> 00:04:38.925
  • He didn't create you for yourlife to be a sum total
  • 00:04:38.958 --> 00:04:45.098
  • of the stuff thathappens to you.
  • 00:04:45.131 --> 00:04:47.367
  • That's life happening to you,
  • 00:04:47.400 --> 00:04:49.402
  • and that's not God'swill for your life.
  • 00:04:49.435 --> 00:04:51.270
  • It's not his purpose.
  • 00:04:51.304 --> 00:04:52.605
  • Now, all of this starts,guess what?
  • 00:04:52.638 --> 00:04:55.575
  • Where?In your emotions.
  • 00:04:55.608 --> 00:04:58.077
  • All of this mastering youremotions and being a reflection
  • 00:04:58.111 --> 00:05:02.715
  • of God's power and authority andbeing a reflection of all that
  • 00:05:02.749 --> 00:05:08.588
  • God stands for and his love,it starts in our emotions.
  • 00:05:08.621 --> 00:05:11.824
  • It starts in our soul.
  • 00:05:11.858 --> 00:05:15.094
  • Now, just for location purposes,where your emotions
  • 00:05:15.128 --> 00:05:18.798
  • are concerned, man isdivided up into three parts.
  • 00:05:18.831 --> 00:05:22.935
  • Man is a tripart being.
  • 00:05:22.969 --> 00:05:25.571
  • Man is a spirit who possessesa soul
  • 00:05:25.605 --> 00:05:30.676
  • and he lives in a physical body.
  • 00:05:30.710 --> 00:05:33.846
  • Sometimes religion hasuse "soul" and "spirit"
  • 00:05:33.880 --> 00:05:38.885
  • interchangeably, asif they are the same.
  • 00:05:38.918 --> 00:05:41.154
  • They are not.
  • 00:05:41.187 --> 00:05:42.989
  • You are a spirit being,you possess a soul,
  • 00:05:43.022 --> 00:05:47.026
  • and you live in a physical body.
  • 00:05:47.059 --> 00:05:49.762
  • Now, the soul is the areawhere your emotions
  • 00:05:49.796 --> 00:05:52.832
  • are found, your feelings.
  • 00:05:52.865 --> 00:05:55.201
  • The soul is the place where youhave your thinker, your feeler,
  • 00:05:55.234 --> 00:05:58.771
  • that's your emotions, andyour chooser, those decisions.
  • 00:05:58.805 --> 00:06:02.275
  • All of that is in your soul.
  • 00:06:02.308 --> 00:06:04.177
  • You are a spirit, you possessa soul,
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:07.146
  • you live in a physical body.
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:08.781
  • Now, I've always said thatsuccess and failure in life
  • 00:06:08.815 --> 00:06:13.553
  • is gonna be based on whathappens in your soul.
  • 00:06:13.586 --> 00:06:17.723
  • Whatever goes on in your soul,what you don't understand about
  • 00:06:17.757 --> 00:06:20.927
  • your soul versus what you dounderstand about your soul
  • 00:06:20.960 --> 00:06:24.430
  • determines success,failure, blessings, and curse.
  • 00:06:24.464 --> 00:06:28.234
  • It all happens inbetween these two ears.
  • 00:06:28.267 --> 00:06:32.104
  • It happens right here.
  • 00:06:32.138 --> 00:06:33.906
  • And another thing we'll look atlater on, how the flesh, that's
  • 00:06:33.940 --> 00:06:38.077
  • what was left over--this issomethin' I'll prove to ya later
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:42.882
  • on, but Jesus didn't die soyou can be free from the flesh.
  • 00:06:42.915 --> 00:06:46.986
  • The flesh is a mindset.
  • 00:06:47.019 --> 00:06:51.991
  • We're not talkin'about the physical body.
  • 00:06:52.024 --> 00:06:53.626
  • There are some places in theWord that it does refer
  • 00:06:53.659 --> 00:06:55.428
  • to the physical body.
  • 00:06:55.461 --> 00:06:57.063
  • But for the most of thetime, when it talks about spirit
  • 00:06:57.096 --> 00:06:59.232
  • versus the flesh, it'stalking about a mindset.
  • 00:06:59.265 --> 00:07:02.768
  • The flesh is a mindset thatgoes against the Word of God.
  • 00:07:02.802 --> 00:07:07.206
  • It's that way of thinking andthat way of feeling
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:10.543
  • that goes against God's Word.
  • 00:07:10.576 --> 00:07:12.645
  • The spirit, in Romans 8 I'mthinking of, is a mindset as
  • 00:07:12.678 --> 00:07:17.116
  • well, but it goes inline with the Word of God.
  • 00:07:17.149 --> 00:07:20.419
  • And so he says, "If you wantto overcome a mindset that goes
  • 00:07:20.453 --> 00:07:24.457
  • against the Word, then you'regonna have to get in the mindset
  • 00:07:24.490 --> 00:07:27.793
  • that lines up with theWord," the spirit and the flesh.
  • 00:07:27.827 --> 00:07:31.430
  • That's somethin' that we'll talkabout a little bit longer 'cause
  • 00:07:31.464 --> 00:07:33.099
  • we've been usin' the words"spirit" and "flesh,"
  • 00:07:33.132 --> 00:07:35.167
  • but not really gotten downto a precision
  • 00:07:35.201 --> 00:07:40.106
  • where this is concerned.
  • 00:07:40.139 --> 00:07:41.707
  • So you can begin to see howto conduct yourself
  • 00:07:41.741 --> 00:07:44.076
  • and what's going on when yourfeelings are responding
  • 00:07:44.110 --> 00:07:48.347
  • to your circumstances.
  • 00:07:48.381 --> 00:07:50.383
  • What's going on when I allow thecircumstances to dictate to me
  • 00:07:50.416 --> 00:07:56.088
  • the emotions that maybe youthink that your emotions should
  • 00:07:56.122 --> 00:07:59.258
  • line up with yourcircumstances, but they don't?
  • 00:07:59.292 --> 00:08:02.361
  • Most people don't thinkthey have control
  • 00:08:02.395 --> 00:08:04.697
  • over their emotions.
  • 00:08:04.730 --> 00:08:06.265
  • If somethin' sad happens,you're supposed to be sad.
  • 00:08:06.299 --> 00:08:08.534
  • If somethin'frustration happens,
  • 00:08:08.568 --> 00:08:10.202
  • you're supposed tobe frustrated.
  • 00:08:10.236 --> 00:08:11.704
  • No, that's not havingauthority over your emotions.
  • 00:08:11.737 --> 00:08:13.472
  • Have authority over youremotions means that if a
  • 00:08:13.506 --> 00:08:16.275
  • circumstances is now trying togovern your emotions to line up
  • 00:08:16.309 --> 00:08:19.812
  • with it, you take authority overyour emotions and say,
  • 00:08:19.845 --> 00:08:22.782
  • "No, I'm not gonna allow you toline up with the circumstance."
  • 00:08:22.815 --> 00:08:26.419
  • Just 'cause the circumstance isthere doesn't mean your emotions
  • 00:08:26.452 --> 00:08:28.988
  • have to line up with it.
  • 00:08:29.021 --> 00:08:30.690
  • If you understandthat, say, "Amen."
  • 00:08:30.723 --> 00:08:32.758
  • So, knowing where the soulis located,
  • 00:08:32.792 --> 00:08:36.062
  • now, look at what he says in 3John chapter 1:2.
  • 00:08:36.095 --> 00:08:40.433
  • He says: "Beloved, I wish aboveall things that thou mayest
  • 00:08:40.466 --> 00:08:45.471
  • prosper and be in health,"and he says all of that, your
  • 00:08:45.504 --> 00:08:51.243
  • prosperity or success--and whathe's saying here, "I want you to
  • 00:08:51.277 --> 00:08:54.580
  • be successful, and Iwant you to be healthy."
  • 00:08:54.614 --> 00:08:57.383
  • That's success inyour physical body.
  • 00:08:57.416 --> 00:09:00.653
  • What do you call prosperityof the spirit? Born again.
  • 00:09:00.686 --> 00:09:04.490
  • Prosperity of the soul?Renewed mind.
  • 00:09:04.523 --> 00:09:07.760
  • Prosperity of the physical body?Health.
  • 00:09:07.793 --> 00:09:10.963
  • And he says, "I wishabove all things."
  • 00:09:10.997 --> 00:09:13.366
  • That's a pretty bold statementthat says, "Above everything,
  • 00:09:13.399 --> 00:09:17.637
  • I want you to be successfulin your spirit, your soul,
  • 00:09:17.670 --> 00:09:20.940
  • and even in your body."
  • 00:09:20.973 --> 00:09:22.341
  • And he says, "This ishow it's gonna happen.
  • 00:09:22.375 --> 00:09:24.910
  • This is how it's gonna happen.Even as your soul prospereth."
  • 00:09:24.944 --> 00:09:28.581
  • So, prosperity in the soul isgonna benefit you
  • 00:09:28.614 --> 00:09:32.218
  • in all of the areasof your life.
  • 00:09:32.251 --> 00:09:34.320
  • Look at this in the Amplified,if you will, how he breaks this
  • 00:09:34.353 --> 00:09:37.957
  • down in the Amplified because,"As goes your soul,
  • 00:09:37.990 --> 00:09:42.762
  • so goes your life."
  • 00:09:42.795 --> 00:09:45.398
  • That's it, whereveryour soul goes,
  • 00:09:45.431 --> 00:09:47.633
  • that's whereyour life is goin'.
  • 00:09:47.667 --> 00:09:49.535
  • And wherever your emotions go,
  • 00:09:49.568 --> 00:09:51.137
  • that's where it willtake you, okay?
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:53.673
  • Your emotions aredesigned to take you to a place.
  • 00:09:53.706 --> 00:09:57.109
  • Now, "Beloved, I pray thatyou may prosper in every way."
  • 00:09:57.143 --> 00:10:00.446
  • Now, that's awesome.
  • 00:10:00.479 --> 00:10:02.014
  • He says, "I want you to besuccessful in every way."
  • 00:10:02.048 --> 00:10:04.150
  • That's mastering your life.
  • 00:10:04.183 --> 00:10:06.952
  • That's mastering your life,knowing that it is possible and
  • 00:10:06.986 --> 00:10:09.522
  • it is the will of God for youto be successful in every way.
  • 00:10:09.555 --> 00:10:14.193
  • There's nothing about yourlife that's not supposed
  • 00:10:14.226 --> 00:10:16.128
  • to be successful.
  • 00:10:16.162 --> 00:10:17.697
  • The will of God is for you tobe successful in every way.
  • 00:10:17.730 --> 00:10:21.701
  • "And [that your body]may keep well,"
  • 00:10:21.734 --> 00:10:24.837
  • he says, "even as (I know) yoursoul keeps well and prospers."
  • 00:10:24.870 --> 00:10:29.709
  • So, again, you prosperingin every way, you being
  • 00:10:29.742 --> 00:10:33.546
  • successful--notice, that's God'swill for you, to be successful
  • 00:10:33.579 --> 00:10:36.082
  • in every way, and evenin your physical body.
  • 00:10:36.115 --> 00:10:38.718
  • It's going to based on whathappens between these two ears,
  • 00:10:38.751 --> 00:10:43.322
  • what's goin' on,renewing your mind.
  • 00:10:43.355 --> 00:10:45.191
  • "Even as your soul prospers."
  • 00:10:45.224 --> 00:10:47.059
  • "Even as your soul prospers."
  • 00:10:47.093 --> 00:10:49.195
  • So, what happens to a guy thatdoesn't have soul prosperity?
  • 00:10:49.228 --> 00:10:52.998
  • What happens to a guy thatdoesn't get in the Word,
  • 00:10:53.032 --> 00:10:55.935
  • doesn't study the Word,doesn't understand how
  • 00:10:55.968 --> 00:10:58.270
  • to balance faith and grace?
  • 00:10:58.304 --> 00:10:59.972
  • He's always gonna besubject to religion.
  • 00:11:00.005 --> 00:11:02.742
  • He's gonna be stuck in a20-year-old thing
  • 00:11:02.775 --> 00:11:05.511
  • that we done went way past.
  • 00:11:05.544 --> 00:11:07.246
  • He's still back there talkin'about somethin' that's 20 years
  • 00:11:07.279 --> 00:11:09.315
  • old, and we done wentall the way up here.
  • 00:11:09.348 --> 00:11:11.350
  • Your soul has prospered you.
  • 00:11:11.383 --> 00:11:13.419
  • So, if his thinkin' is stuck insome little elementary thing in
  • 00:11:13.452 --> 00:11:19.191
  • the past--you know, theBible talks about that.
  • 00:11:19.225 --> 00:11:21.327
  • He says, "We need toleave the elementary things.
  • 00:11:21.360 --> 00:11:24.196
  • Why are we continuin' to layagain the foundations of faith
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:27.933
  • and all these--" He says,"When are we gonna go forward?"
  • 00:11:27.967 --> 00:11:30.402
  • That's soul prosperity.
  • 00:11:30.436 --> 00:11:32.071
  • That's you getting in God'sWord, getting in God's presence,
  • 00:11:32.104 --> 00:11:34.874
  • and allowing his Word and hispresence to allow your soul
  • 00:11:34.907 --> 00:11:39.345
  • to prosper or to increaseand to be successful.
  • 00:11:39.378 --> 00:11:41.981
  • And this is a real truestatement you know,
  • 00:11:42.014 --> 00:11:44.850
  • the more you know, the more yougonna be able to do.
  • 00:11:44.884 --> 00:11:48.053
  • You can't do no betterif you don't know better.
  • 00:11:48.087 --> 00:11:51.991
  • So, what happens?
  • 00:11:52.024 --> 00:11:53.359
  • You stay stuck in thebetter that you know.
  • 00:11:53.392 --> 00:11:55.795
  • And there is somethin' thathappens when you get in the Word
  • 00:11:55.828 --> 00:11:58.264
  • of God and you begin toprosper in your soul.
  • 00:11:58.297 --> 00:12:01.801
  • So, "As your soul goes,the rest of your life
  • 00:12:01.834 --> 00:12:04.737
  • goes that same way."
  • 00:12:04.770 --> 00:12:06.505
  • So, you gotta understandthat, what happens here,
  • 00:12:06.539 --> 00:12:08.307
  • is God created us to be incontrol as he is in control.
  • 00:12:08.340 --> 00:12:17.483
  • And what he created usto do is to be in control
  • 00:12:17.516 --> 00:12:19.552
  • of all of the creation.
  • 00:12:19.585 --> 00:12:21.086
  • All the creation wascreated for us to be in control.
  • 00:12:21.120 --> 00:12:24.557
  • However, in our failure, watchthis, in our failure
  • 00:12:24.590 --> 00:12:27.693
  • to control ourselves--now,this is what happens.
  • 00:12:27.726 --> 00:12:31.063
  • When you fail to controlyourself, and I'm speaking for
  • 00:12:31.096 --> 00:12:35.568
  • specifically your emotions.
  • 00:12:35.601 --> 00:12:36.969
  • When you fail to control youremotions, guess what happens?
  • 00:12:37.002 --> 00:12:40.306
  • You find yourself tryingto control other people.
  • 00:12:40.339 --> 00:12:45.144
  • And God never, never designedus to control other people.
  • 00:12:45.177 --> 00:12:48.347
  • So, in our failure to controlour own self,
  • 00:12:48.380 --> 00:12:50.983
  • we attempt to try tocontrol others.
  • 00:12:51.016 --> 00:12:54.220
  • Why do we do that?
  • 00:12:54.253 --> 00:12:55.955
  • To try to get that sense ofsuperiority that God created us
  • 00:12:55.988 --> 00:13:00.392
  • to have.
  • 00:13:00.426 --> 00:13:01.894
  • He gave us that sense ofsuperiority over all of his
  • 00:13:01.927 --> 00:13:04.630
  • creation so we would seeourselves superior over animal
  • 00:13:04.663 --> 00:13:07.733
  • kingdom andeverything that he's created.
  • 00:13:07.766 --> 00:13:10.402
  • But now, you mess up when youcan't control your own emotions.
  • 00:13:10.436 --> 00:13:13.806
  • You can't control your own self.
  • 00:13:13.839 --> 00:13:16.342
  • And then, what happensas a result of you
  • 00:13:16.375 --> 00:13:18.177
  • not being able to control you?
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:19.678
  • You can't control your temper.
  • 00:13:19.712 --> 00:13:21.046
  • You can't control your anger.
  • 00:13:21.080 --> 00:13:22.781
  • You can't controla lot of things.
  • 00:13:22.815 --> 00:13:24.316
  • Then what happen?
  • 00:13:24.350 --> 00:13:25.985
  • You now try to control somebodyelse, and that is a result of
  • 00:13:26.018 --> 00:13:29.788
  • you not being able tocontrol your own emotions.
  • 00:13:29.822 --> 00:13:32.658
  • And I'll tell you, when thathappens, ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:13:32.691 --> 00:13:35.628
  • you know, you're in a situation.
  • 00:13:35.661 --> 00:13:37.463
  • And that's what--if you'll lookat life real clearly, people,
  • 00:13:37.496 --> 00:13:42.101
  • you know, who can't controlthemselves, the next thing they
  • 00:13:42.134 --> 00:13:44.837
  • will attempt to do is to controlsomebody else
  • 00:13:44.870 --> 00:13:48.140
  • because there is this need towant to express the superiority
  • 00:13:48.173 --> 00:13:52.211
  • that God gave usover his creation.
  • 00:13:52.244 --> 00:13:55.481
  • And when we find that we can'tcontrol ourselves, we feel like
  • 00:13:55.514 --> 00:13:59.618
  • we need to go and try todominate somebody's life,
  • 00:13:59.652 --> 00:14:03.088
  • and to do that.
  • 00:14:03.122 --> 00:14:04.490
  • So, mastering your emotions,it doesn't mean
  • 00:14:04.523 --> 00:14:07.960
  • not having emotions.
  • 00:14:07.993 --> 00:14:10.963
  • That's not what it is.
  • 00:14:10.996 --> 00:14:12.531
  • Mastering your emotions doesn'tmean--and this is especially for
  • 00:14:12.564 --> 00:14:15.134
  • Christians because Christianswanna pretend
  • 00:14:15.167 --> 00:14:16.635
  • like they don't have emotions.
  • 00:14:16.669 --> 00:14:18.671
  • Mastering your emotions doesn'tmean not having emotions.
  • 00:14:18.704 --> 00:14:21.640
  • God created us and designed usto express passion and emotion.
  • 00:14:21.674 --> 00:14:29.148
  • He designed us to do that.He wants us to have passion.
  • 00:14:29.181 --> 00:14:33.519
  • He wants us to have emotions.
  • 00:14:33.552 --> 00:14:35.854
  • He designed us to doit so we can enjoy it.
  • 00:14:35.888 --> 00:14:37.723
  • But now what happened?
  • 00:14:37.756 --> 00:14:39.391
  • When sin and the curse and Satancame in to pervert our emotions,
  • 00:14:39.425 --> 00:14:47.199
  • then perverted emotions nowended up hurting us,
  • 00:14:47.232 --> 00:14:52.271
  • and then we start hurtingpeople around us.
  • 00:14:52.304 --> 00:14:55.741
  • Our emotions got perverted.
  • 00:14:55.774 --> 00:14:57.643
  • Now we tryin' to control folks.
  • 00:14:57.676 --> 00:14:59.511
  • And then those emotionshurt you,
  • 00:14:59.545 --> 00:15:02.414
  • and then you hurtsomebody around you.
  • 00:15:02.448 --> 00:15:04.049
  • You know, you're hurtemotionally and now you're ready
  • 00:15:04.083 --> 00:15:07.853
  • to hurt other peoplethat are around you.
  • 00:15:07.886 --> 00:15:10.222
  • See, I'm not talkin' psychologytonight, because psychology
  • 00:15:10.255 --> 00:15:15.494
  • deals with--it deals with youremotions, your feeling,
  • 00:15:15.527 --> 00:15:19.465
  • and your emotions,but it doesn't deal
  • 00:15:19.498 --> 00:15:21.533
  • with your spirit man.
  • 00:15:21.567 --> 00:15:24.069
  • And that's a mistake because theonly thing they can tell you
  • 00:15:24.103 --> 00:15:26.305
  • is about your feelings.
  • 00:15:26.338 --> 00:15:28.107
  • But I'm here to tell you howto take authority over your
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:30.542
  • feelings and todominate those emotions, amen?
  • 00:15:30.576 --> 00:15:36.215
  • So, we must not beemotionally ruled people.
  • 00:15:36.248 --> 00:15:42.554
  • We cannot beemotionally ruled people.
  • 00:15:42.588 --> 00:15:46.692
  • I'm gonna show you a littlelater on in the garden of Eden,
  • 00:15:46.725 --> 00:15:49.395
  • you know, we talk about, youknow, Adam and Eve,
  • 00:15:49.428 --> 00:15:52.998
  • and they ate from the tree ofthe knowledge of good and evil,
  • 00:15:53.032 --> 00:15:55.134
  • and a curse came on them,but we very rarely talk about
  • 00:15:55.167 --> 00:15:59.038
  • specifically andprecisely what that curse was.
  • 00:15:59.071 --> 00:16:01.707
  • And you know what that cursewas that came on them
  • 00:16:01.740 --> 00:16:03.509
  • after they disobeyed?
  • 00:16:03.542 --> 00:16:05.277
  • It was the curse ofbeing emotionally ruled.
  • 00:16:05.310 --> 00:16:09.581
  • That was the curse, the curseof being emotionally ruled.
  • 00:16:09.615 --> 00:16:14.286
  • And now theiremotions were moving them.
  • 00:16:14.319 --> 00:16:17.189
  • Their emotions weredirecting their lives.
  • 00:16:17.222 --> 00:16:20.092
  • It was before they were beingmotivated by God
  • 00:16:20.125 --> 00:16:23.062
  • and his Spirit and his Word.
  • 00:16:23.095 --> 00:16:24.830
  • But the curse was a curseof being emotionally ruled.
  • 00:16:24.863 --> 00:16:28.300
  • This is something that religionhas kept in hiding,
  • 00:16:28.333 --> 00:16:33.038
  • that you hadn't heard peopletalk about too much.
  • 00:16:33.072 --> 00:16:35.641
  • We don't deal with the emotionsin church, you know, except for
  • 00:16:35.674 --> 00:16:40.946
  • shoutin' and doin' cartwheels,and I don't have any problems
  • 00:16:40.979 --> 00:16:43.549
  • with that, but we don't dealwith your negative emotions.
  • 00:16:43.582 --> 00:16:45.451
  • You know, why did youend up doin' what you did?
  • 00:16:45.484 --> 00:16:49.688
  • Why did you end up?
  • 00:16:49.721 --> 00:16:51.423
  • And how did youend up in adultery?
  • 00:16:51.457 --> 00:16:53.192
  • And how did you endup in perversion?
  • 00:16:53.225 --> 00:16:55.260
  • And how did you end up addictedto that or addicted to that?
  • 00:16:55.294 --> 00:16:59.364
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:16:59.398 --> 00:17:00.933
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:17:00.966 --> 00:17:04.536
  • And in every situation, evenwhen I was a therapist,
  • 00:17:04.570 --> 00:17:07.439
  • every situation was,"This is how I felt.
  • 00:17:07.473 --> 00:17:09.942
  • And because I felt likethat, then I did this."
  • 00:17:09.975 --> 00:17:12.978
  • And in therapy, you workreal hard to try to get
  • 00:17:13.011 --> 00:17:15.948
  • to the nitty gritty.
  • 00:17:15.981 --> 00:17:17.483
  • Let's locate the feelingthat moved you to do that.
  • 00:17:17.516 --> 00:17:21.653
  • And once you locate the feelingthat moved you
  • 00:17:21.687 --> 00:17:23.388
  • to do that, I don't know.
  • 00:17:23.422 --> 00:17:25.190
  • I mean, you know, sometimesyou would say, "You're cured."
  • 00:17:25.224 --> 00:17:27.759
  • I was never satisfied with that.
  • 00:17:27.793 --> 00:17:29.495
  • I mean, I was gettin' peoplefilled with the Holy Ghost
  • 00:17:29.528 --> 00:17:31.697
  • and gettin' called to themedical director's office.
  • 00:17:31.730 --> 00:17:35.667
  • "You can't do that."
  • 00:17:35.701 --> 00:17:37.202
  • I'm like, "Well, my patients area lot better than y'all's are."
  • 00:17:37.236 --> 00:17:40.105
  • But that wasn't apart of the therapy.
  • 00:17:40.139 --> 00:17:41.807
  • But I'm tellin' you, man,
  • 00:17:41.840 --> 00:17:43.709
  • somethin' had to moveyou to addiction.
  • 00:17:43.742 --> 00:17:46.378
  • Some emotion had to moveyou to be an abusive person.
  • 00:17:46.411 --> 00:17:50.983
  • Some emotion had to move you.
  • 00:17:51.016 --> 00:17:53.418
  • See, what happens, when youcan't control yourself--and
  • 00:17:53.452 --> 00:17:55.888
  • I'll show you in a moment.
  • 00:17:55.921 --> 00:17:57.289
  • If you can't control yourthoughts, then you can't control
  • 00:17:57.322 --> 00:17:58.790
  • your emotions.
  • 00:17:58.824 --> 00:18:00.125
  • If you can't control youremotions, then you won't have
  • 00:18:00.159 --> 00:18:01.827
  • the peace and the securitythat you need in your life.
  • 00:18:01.860 --> 00:18:04.963
  • And then, ultimately,you will begin to control
  • 00:18:04.997 --> 00:18:07.266
  • and try to control other people.
  • 00:18:07.299 --> 00:18:08.834
  • But your emotions iswhat moves you there.
  • 00:18:08.867 --> 00:18:11.270
  • "Oh, I don't know howI ended up doin' this."
  • 00:18:11.303 --> 00:18:13.505
  • I do, your emotionsmoved you there.
  • 00:18:13.539 --> 00:18:15.340
  • Those were emotions that werecontrolling you
  • 00:18:15.374 --> 00:18:17.676
  • rather than you controllingyour emotions.
  • 00:18:17.709 --> 00:18:20.679
  • That's how ithappens all the time.
  • 00:18:20.712 --> 00:18:23.248
  • "Oh, I hurt somebody's feelin's,and I cussed 'em out, and they
  • 00:18:23.282 --> 00:18:25.851
  • didn't wanna havenothin' to do with me."
  • 00:18:25.884 --> 00:18:27.186
  • And you know what?
  • 00:18:27.219 --> 00:18:28.520
  • You can damage relationshipsthat may not be able to be
  • 00:18:28.554 --> 00:18:30.289
  • repaired because theydon't wanna be repaired.
  • 00:18:30.322 --> 00:18:32.791
  • But at the same time, asChristian people who are filled
  • 00:18:32.824 --> 00:18:35.494
  • with the Holy Spirit, I have to,as a pastor, teach you that you
  • 00:18:35.527 --> 00:18:39.064
  • can have authorityover your emotions.
  • 00:18:39.097 --> 00:18:41.533
  • You can dominate your emotions.
  • 00:18:41.567 --> 00:18:42.868
  • They were never givento dominate your life.
  • 00:18:42.901 --> 00:18:45.404
  • You were given those emotionsso you can enjoy life,
  • 00:18:45.437 --> 00:18:48.874
  • not to have those emotions tomake your life miserable.
  • 00:18:48.907 --> 00:18:52.044
  • And so, I've had a whole newlook at this.
  • 00:18:52.077 --> 00:18:56.882
  • Maybe it was good I took acouple of weeks off
  • 00:18:56.915 --> 00:18:58.684
  • to really look at this.
  • 00:18:58.717 --> 00:19:00.085
  • Because now, you know how I get,I take everything up
  • 00:19:00.118 --> 00:19:02.020
  • to the extreme so I can get itin you,
  • 00:19:02.054 --> 00:19:04.723
  • into everything, it's the mostimportant message
  • 00:19:04.756 --> 00:19:06.592
  • or teaching that I'llever teach because
  • 00:19:06.625 --> 00:19:08.894
  • think about it.
  • 00:19:08.927 --> 00:19:10.229
  • If you candominate your emotions.
  • 00:19:10.262 --> 00:19:11.964
  • If you can look at somethin'that happens in your marriage
  • 00:19:11.997 --> 00:19:14.499
  • and it irritated you, andyou can say, "You know what?
  • 00:19:14.533 --> 00:19:17.035
  • I choose not to dealwith that right now.
  • 00:19:17.069 --> 00:19:19.605
  • Let's deal with it tomorrowat lunch or dinner,
  • 00:19:19.638 --> 00:19:21.873
  • and I'll deal with it then."
  • 00:19:21.907 --> 00:19:23.842
  • But sometimes you have to know.
  • 00:19:23.875 --> 00:19:25.744
  • You have to understand that
  • 00:19:25.777 --> 00:19:27.079
  • "this emotion istakin' me somewhere."
  • 00:19:27.112 --> 00:19:28.714
  • And when you hear this teaching,or you hear all of 'em, when we
  • 00:19:28.747 --> 00:19:31.116
  • talk about stress, when we talkabout self-doubt, when we talk
  • 00:19:31.149 --> 00:19:35.053
  • about depression, when wetalk about insecurity and
  • 00:19:35.087 --> 00:19:38.557
  • inferiority, you're gonna beginto see how lives
  • 00:19:38.590 --> 00:19:42.794
  • have become a puppet to emotionsthat they were supposed
  • 00:19:42.828 --> 00:19:47.065
  • to have authority over.
  • 00:19:47.099 --> 00:19:49.935
  • And that's gotta stop.
  • 00:19:49.968 --> 00:19:51.703
  • Is everybody with me?
  • 00:19:51.737 --> 00:19:56.975
  • People try to control othersare people who cannot control
  • 00:19:57.009 --> 00:20:00.679
  • themselves.
  • 00:20:00.712 --> 00:20:02.214
  • And usually, this is foundin the failure
  • 00:20:02.247 --> 00:20:04.750
  • to control their emotions.
  • 00:20:04.783 --> 00:20:07.619
  • It's right there.
  • 00:20:07.653 --> 00:20:09.521
  • Well, you know, you'rea controlling person.
  • 00:20:09.554 --> 00:20:11.456
  • It's 'cause youcan't control yourself.
  • 00:20:11.490 --> 00:20:13.925
  • You can't control your emotions,then you're gonna end up tryin'
  • 00:20:13.959 --> 00:20:17.629
  • to control other people.
  • 00:20:17.663 --> 00:20:19.264
  • Now, there's nothin' necessarilywrong with being in control.
  • 00:20:19.298 --> 00:20:22.301
  • The issue and the questionis, you're in control of what?
  • 00:20:22.334 --> 00:20:27.406
  • Now, we know God hasn't calledus to control one another,
  • 00:20:27.439 --> 00:20:30.876
  • so what is it that weneed to be in control of?
  • 00:20:30.909 --> 00:20:32.678
  • Let me go through thatprogression one more time.
  • 00:20:32.711 --> 00:20:34.579
  • We need to control our thoughts.
  • 00:20:34.613 --> 00:20:37.182
  • We need to control ourthoughts, all right?
  • 00:20:37.215 --> 00:20:41.253
  • Why do we need tocontrol our thoughts?
  • 00:20:41.286 --> 00:20:43.088
  • And is it possible toreally control your thoughts?
  • 00:20:43.121 --> 00:20:45.457
  • You know, I thought at onetime--I remember saying this.
  • 00:20:45.490 --> 00:20:48.026
  • "Nobody cancontrol their thoughts."
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:51.463
  • I remember Brother Hagin, whenhe was alive, he used to say
  • 00:20:51.496 --> 00:20:53.765
  • this all the time: "You cannotstop the birds from flying
  • 00:20:53.799 --> 00:20:56.802
  • over your head, but you canstop them from building a nest
  • 00:20:56.835 --> 00:21:00.405
  • in your hair."
  • 00:21:00.439 --> 00:21:02.207
  • How?
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:03.608
  • Well, let's look real quick in2 Corinthians chapter 10,
  • 00:21:03.642 --> 00:21:05.510
  • and verse 3.
  • 00:21:05.544 --> 00:21:07.312
  • We need to control our thoughts.
  • 00:21:07.346 --> 00:21:09.281
  • You can control your thoughts.
  • 00:21:09.314 --> 00:21:11.650
  • I'll show you by Scripture, andthen I'll show you practically
  • 00:21:11.683 --> 00:21:15.120
  • how you cancontrol your thoughts.
  • 00:21:15.153 --> 00:21:18.590
  • And that's whereit's gonna start.
  • 00:21:18.623 --> 00:21:20.959
  • If you can controlyour thoughts,
  • 00:21:20.992 --> 00:21:22.594
  • you can control your emotions.
  • 00:21:22.627 --> 00:21:24.363
  • If you can controlyour thoughts,
  • 00:21:24.396 --> 00:21:26.231
  • you can control your emotions.
  • 00:21:26.264 --> 00:21:27.566
  • You remember the anatomy oflife I went over the last time?
  • 00:21:27.599 --> 00:21:29.868
  • Let's go over it again.
  • 00:21:29.901 --> 00:21:31.269
  • Everything starts withwhat you're exposed to.
  • 00:21:31.303 --> 00:21:33.972
  • Whatever you're exposed to,that's gonna create
  • 00:21:34.005 --> 00:21:35.907
  • the way you think.
  • 00:21:35.941 --> 00:21:37.676
  • The way you think will createthe way you feel, emotions.
  • 00:21:37.709 --> 00:21:41.780
  • The way you feel willcreate the decisions you make.
  • 00:21:41.813 --> 00:21:44.950
  • Those decisions willcreate the actions you take.
  • 00:21:44.983 --> 00:21:47.753
  • Those actions willcreate the habits you create.
  • 00:21:47.786 --> 00:21:53.024
  • Those habits willcreate your character.
  • 00:21:53.058 --> 00:21:55.627
  • Your character will bringyou to your destination.
  • 00:21:55.660 --> 00:21:58.730
  • And we reversed it.
  • 00:21:58.764 --> 00:22:00.065
  • If you wanna changeyour destination,
  • 00:22:00.098 --> 00:22:01.767
  • change your character.
  • 00:22:01.800 --> 00:22:03.101
  • You wanna change yourcharacter, change your habits.
  • 00:22:03.135 --> 00:22:04.736
  • You change your habits,change your actions.
  • 00:22:04.770 --> 00:22:06.571
  • If you wanna changeyour actions,
  • 00:22:06.605 --> 00:22:07.906
  • change youremotional decisions.
  • 00:22:07.939 --> 00:22:09.241
  • If you wanna change yourdecisions,
  • 00:22:09.274 --> 00:22:11.810
  • you've got to changehow you feel.
  • 00:22:11.843 --> 00:22:14.246
  • If you wanna changehow you feel,
  • 00:22:14.279 --> 00:22:15.580
  • you've gotta changehow you think.
  • 00:22:15.614 --> 00:22:16.915
  • And ultimately, if you wannachange all of that, you're gonna
  • 00:22:16.948 --> 00:22:18.784
  • have to adjust what you'reexposin' yourself to, who you
  • 00:22:18.817 --> 00:22:21.553
  • hangin' around, what youlistenin' to, what you doin'.
  • 00:22:21.586 --> 00:22:25.424
  • 'Cause all of it starts withwhat are you hangin' around?
  • 00:22:25.457 --> 00:22:30.061
  • Who you hangin' around with?What are you listenin' to?
  • 00:22:30.095 --> 00:22:32.697
  • What are you seeing?Exposure.
  • 00:22:32.731 --> 00:22:35.967
  • What are youexposing yourself to?
  • 00:22:36.001 --> 00:22:38.036
  • What are youexposing yourself to?
  • 00:22:38.069 --> 00:22:39.604
  • That's first base, number one.
  • 00:22:39.638 --> 00:22:42.274
  • And so, if you can controlyour thoughts,
  • 00:22:42.307 --> 00:22:44.476
  • you can controlyour emotions.
  • 00:22:44.509 --> 00:22:46.478
  • And if you can control yourthoughts and your emotions,
  • 00:22:46.511 --> 00:22:48.747
  • guess what?
  • 00:22:48.780 --> 00:22:50.315
  • You gonna be able to make somegood decisions, make some good
  • 00:22:50.348 --> 00:22:52.918
  • actions, create some goodhabits, have a great character,
  • 00:22:52.951 --> 00:22:56.221
  • and end up in agreat destination.
  • 00:22:56.254 --> 00:22:59.057
  • Life it not, you know,happenstance,
  • 00:22:59.090 --> 00:23:01.927
  • "Well, I don't, you know, somepeople suppose to end up there
  • 00:23:01.960 --> 00:23:04.930
  • and some people not supposed toend up there."
  • 00:23:04.963 --> 00:23:06.665
  • That's crock.
  • 00:23:06.698 --> 00:23:09.267
  • That's not right.That's not right.
  • 00:23:09.301 --> 00:23:12.637
  • It's not right.
  • 00:23:12.671 --> 00:23:14.506
  • I talk to people all the time,and they wanna complain
  • 00:23:14.539 --> 00:23:16.241
  • about where they are.
  • 00:23:16.274 --> 00:23:17.909
  • And I'm like, "Are youready to change that?"
  • 00:23:17.943 --> 00:23:19.878
  • And then when I tell 'em how,and I'm like, "Call me when
  • 00:23:19.911 --> 00:23:22.047
  • you're ready 'cause you're notready because you don't want to
  • 00:23:22.080 --> 00:23:25.317
  • do absolutely what's necessaryto create the life you want."
  • 00:23:25.350 --> 00:23:31.189
  • Didn't I write a bookon that?
  • 00:23:31.223 --> 00:23:33.391
  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:23:33.425 --> 00:23:35.026
  • Verse 3: "For though we walk inthe flesh, we do not war
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:39.097
  • after the flesh," verse 4, "(forthe weapons of our warfare
  • 00:23:39.130 --> 00:23:43.635
  • are not carnal, but they'remighty through God
  • 00:23:43.668 --> 00:23:47.906
  • to the pulling down ofstrong holds)."
  • 00:23:47.939 --> 00:23:49.774
  • Now, "carnal," it literallymeans "of the five senses,"
  • 00:23:49.808 --> 00:23:56.781
  • "of the five senses."
  • 00:23:56.815 --> 00:23:58.416
  • And our senses have even beengiven to us
  • 00:23:58.450 --> 00:24:01.419
  • for us to enjoy this life.

  • all those things havebeen given to us.
  • 00:24:04.990 --> 00:24:07.425
  • But we were never designed byGod to allow those senses

  • 00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:13.398

  • 00:25:30.909 --> 00:25:32.611
