  • you have, start thanking God for what you don't have.
  • 00:00:03.190 --> 00:00:06.100
  • That could be on the dark side and the light side.
  • 00:00:06.110 --> 00:00:11.200
  • (Singing) I know my God has made the way for
  • 00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:18.290
  • me. I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:31.270
  • KENNETH: Hello, everybody, we're Kenneth and Gloria
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:36.020
  • Copeland. Welcome to the Believer's Voice of Victory
  • 00:00:36.030 --> 00:00:38.220
  • broadcast. Did you have a good Thanksgiving Day yesterday? Hey,
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:42.190
  • you remember the commercial, I believe it was an Alka-Seltzer
  • 00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:49.010
  • commercial, years ago, and a guy's sitting on the edge of his
  • 00:00:49.020 --> 00:00:54.180
  • bed and he said, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing."
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:59.060
  • GLORIA: The whole thing. KENNETH: Oh, that really fits
  • 00:00:59.070 --> 00:01:04.210
  • you, huh? Maybe not. No, praise God. Father, we pray for all of
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:10.170
  • those that ate the whole thing yesterday, and we praise you and
  • 00:01:10.180 --> 00:01:16.280
  • we thank you, Sir. We're such a blessed people, and we worship
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:21.230
  • you and we bless your name today, and we come ... GLORIA:
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:25.090
  • Thank you. KENNETH: ... before you ... GLORIA: Praise. KENNETH:
  • 00:01:25.100 --> 00:01:27.140
  • ... with thanksgiving and praise. We honor you, Sir, above
  • 00:01:27.150 --> 00:01:30.130
  • all others and above all else. We thank you for your Word. We
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:34.130
  • put it first place and final authority in our lives, and we
  • 00:01:34.140 --> 00:01:38.130
  • give you praise. GLORIA: Praise God. KENNETH: In Jesus name.
  • 00:01:38.140 --> 00:01:40.120
  • Amen. GLORIA: Amen. KENNETH: We are talking about the life, and
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:48.100
  • living a life, of thanksgiving, a life of gratitude, and
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:54.060
  • developing a grateful attitude, an attitude of gratitude all the
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:02:00.120
  • time so that it begins to control your consciousness, and
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:04.180
  • it controls all your thinking and everything that you do. So,
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:08.040
  • open your Bibles with me again to Romans chapter 1, and our
  • 00:02:08.050 --> 00:02:13.160
  • golden text for this week verse 21, "Because that when they knew
  • 00:02:13.170 --> 00:02:20.110
  • God they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful but
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:28.170
  • became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish
  • 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:34.090
  • heart was darkened." Now I want to go again today
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:40.070
  • back to where we were in the book of Ephesians. We read ...
  • 00:02:40.080 --> 00:02:53.280
  • Now, you do realize that the book of Ephesians is written to
  • 00:02:53.290 --> 00:03:02.260
  • a whole church of born-again, Holy-Ghost-baptized,
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:10.090
  • tongue-talking, healing, believing Christians. Now, it
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:15.140
  • was the norm back then to get born again and get baptized with
  • 00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:21.140
  • the Holy Spirit. That was the norm. Now, tradition and so
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:25.010
  • forth got mixed up in it, and religion and all of that, and
  • 00:03:25.020 --> 00:03:28.000
  • then God had to renew it and bring it back right at the tail
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:32.160
  • end of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th century.
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:35.260
  • But now He's always had a people, always, always. Maria
  • 00:03:35.270 --> 00:03:42.170
  • Woodworth-Etter received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in the
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:45.160
  • 1850s, so always been a people filled with the Spirit of God.
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:51.260
  • Glory to God. But now, this church he's writing ...
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:58.020
  • Now here's another thing. Verse 17, "I say, therefore, and
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:04.270
  • testify in the Lord that you henceforth walk not as other
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:08.210
  • Gentiles walk in the vanity of their mind, having the
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:12.140
  • understanding darkened" There he's talking about being
  • 00:04:12.150 --> 00:04:17.280
  • on the dark side again. He said, don't be doing this. "... being
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:22.080
  • alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:25.220
  • them because of the blindness, or the hardness, of their
  • 00:04:25.230 --> 00:04:30.130
  • heart." Now, come on down here. Verse 22, "You put
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:38.070
  • off concerning the former manner of life, the old man," Put that
  • 00:04:38.080 --> 00:04:42.250
  • old man off, you do it. Put him off. Amen. "... the old man
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:51.040
  • which is corrupt according to deceitful lust. Be renewed in
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:55.090
  • the Spirit of your mind. Put on the new man which, after God, is
  • 00:04:55.100 --> 00:05:01.050
  • created in righteousness and true holiness." That is our true
  • 00:05:01.060 --> 00:05:07.220
  • nature. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: We've been born again
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:11.000
  • and made the righteousness of God in Him. Amen. Now, "Be angry
  • 00:05:11.010 --> 00:05:17.140
  • and sin not. Let not the sun go down on your wrath, neither give
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:20.200
  • place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more." He's
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:24.140
  • talking to Christian people and having to tell them to quit
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:26.200
  • stealing, and quit lying. "Well, Brother Copeland, I don't lie."
  • 00:05:26.210 --> 00:05:31.010
  • Really? You told somebody you'd be there every morning at 9:00,
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:40.290
  • and every morning you came in at 9:20, that's a lie. It's a very
  • 00:05:41.000 --> 00:05:47.240
  • damaging thing, particularly if you're working out in the world.
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:51.010
  • "That Christian, man his word ain't worth anything." So he's
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:55.030
  • having ... "Let him that stole steal no more, but let him work
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:06:00.270
  • with his hands that which is good that he may have to give."
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:03.120
  • He's not earning a living, he's earning a giving. CONGREGATION:
  • 00:06:03.130 --> 00:06:08.220
  • Amen. KENNETH: "As you sow, ..." See, we're supposed to be
  • 00:06:08.230 --> 00:06:12.130
  • believing God for return, and so our tithing and sowing should be
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:16.160
  • producing our living, not just the job. CONGREGATION: Amen.
  • 00:06:16.170 --> 00:06:20.130
  • KENNETH: Huh? You follow me here? Then, "Let no corrupt
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:26.120
  • communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:29.190
  • good to the use of edifying that it may minister grace to the
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:33.020
  • hearers, and grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby you are
  • 00:06:33.030 --> 00:06:37.000
  • sealed under the day of redemption. Let all bitterness,
  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:39.280
  • and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking"
  • 00:06:39.290 --> 00:06:45.250
  • He keeps talking about speaking, words, words. Words
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:49.160
  • are so huge. They're the biggest thing there is. Amen. Words are
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:55.240
  • the most powerful thing known in this universe. It created the
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:07:00.080
  • universe. Words did. Amen. It's upheld by words. Praise God.
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:06.100
  • "Be put away from you with all malice. Be ye kind one to
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:12.120
  • another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as
  • 00:07:12.130 --> 00:07:16.040
  • God, for Christ's sake, has forgiven you." Now, we're into
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:20.160
  • something here. Christ. He didn't say for Jesus' sake, he
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:26.230
  • said for Christ's sake. Christ, the Greek translation of the
  • 00:07:26.240 --> 00:07:32.230
  • word, the Hebrew word Messiah, which literally means anointed
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:36.050
  • one and His anointing. Jesus never did any miracle, He never
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:41.140
  • did any, not one. He's just as much the Son of God when he's 29
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:46.080
  • as He was when He's 30. He didn't do anything until He was
  • 00:07:46.090 --> 00:07:49.250
  • baptized in the Holy Ghost and power, and anointed, and
  • 00:07:49.260 --> 00:07:53.260
  • anointed. That anointing, the burden-removing yoke and
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:58.090
  • destroying power of the Living God. Notice. "For the sake of
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:08:01.210
  • the anointing, God's forgiven you." For the sake of
  • 00:08:01.220 --> 00:08:10.050
  • the anointing in this congregation. All of this stuff
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:13.120
  • has to do with the anointing. "Be ye, therefore, followers, or
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:16.260
  • imitators, of God, as dear children imitate their parents.
  • 00:08:16.270 --> 00:08:20.000
  • Walk in love as Christ also loved us and given Himself for
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:24.030
  • us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling
  • 00:08:24.040 --> 00:08:27.260
  • savor. Fornication and all uncleanness, or covetousness,
  • 00:08:27.270 --> 00:08:32.050
  • let not be once named among you has become a Saint. Neither
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:37.200
  • filthiness nor foolish talking ..." There's talking again. "...
  • 00:08:37.210 --> 00:08:40.100
  • nor jesting ..." The dirty jokes and stuff that's not fit, "...
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:43.220
  • which are not fit, but rather giving of thanks." Thanksgiving,
  • 00:08:43.230 --> 00:08:50.020
  • thanksgiving, praise and thanksgiving. Get it in your
  • 00:08:50.030 --> 00:08:54.060
  • heart. Get it in your mind. Praise and thanksgiving is just
  • 00:08:54.070 --> 00:08:57.200
  • woven all through here. Praise God. "The whole body is
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:09:02.060
  • fitly joined together and compacted by that which every
  • 00:09:02.070 --> 00:09:05.090
  • joint supplies, according to the effectual working of the measure
  • 00:09:05.100 --> 00:09:08.280
  • of every part maketh increase in the body unto the edifying of
  • 00:09:08.290 --> 00:09:11.050
  • itself in love." Love needs to be praised. God is love. God is
  • 00:09:11.060 --> 00:09:17.040
  • love. We need to be talking about love, and praising God.
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:20.280
  • Thank you Lord Jesus. Thank you for a wife like I have. Glory to
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:26.010
  • God. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: You can be the wife
  • 00:09:26.020 --> 00:09:28.150
  • that you wanted to be. You can be the husband you always wanted
  • 00:09:28.160 --> 00:09:32.170
  • to be. You can be the child to your parents you always wanted
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:37.140
  • to be. "Well, but you don't know how my daddy treated me." Well,
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:41.040
  • praise God for him. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
  • 00:09:41.050 --> 00:09:43.090
  • "Well, what do I got to praise God for him about?" Well, you're
  • 00:09:43.100 --> 00:09:45.190
  • here. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Amen. You're here.
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:49.170
  • Thank you, Jesus. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Amen. You can
  • 00:09:49.180 --> 00:09:53.000
  • praise God. You can praise God, and start thanking God for what
  • 00:09:53.010 --> 00:09:57.120
  • you have. Start thanking God for what you don't have. That could
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:02.100
  • be on the dark side and the light side. I'm thanking God,
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:06.170
  • and like we read in Philippians 4:6, we continue to make our
  • 00:10:06.180 --> 00:10:11.200
  • wants known to God through ... And everything in prayer with
  • 00:10:11.210 --> 00:10:16.250
  • thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. The
  • 00:10:16.260 --> 00:10:21.100
  • Amplified, "Continue making your requests known to God." I have
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:26.040
  • taken the scripture, I believed I received, and now I'm giving
  • 00:10:26.050 --> 00:10:30.150
  • thanks. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: I'm giving thanks. I'm
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:33.050
  • praising you and giving thanks. I'm praising you and giving
  • 00:10:33.060 --> 00:10:35.220
  • thanks. I'm big on the moment that I did it? I have certain
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:43.250
  • moments, and times, that I make note of the time, and the day,
  • 00:10:43.260 --> 00:10:47.120
  • and the date. That's when I took this. I learned that from
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:51.100
  • Gloria. That Word received. Believe you have received them
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:54.230
  • and you shall have them. The Greek word is take, to take as
  • 00:10:54.240 --> 00:10:57.230
  • ownership, and so you take it when? When you pray. Well,
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:11:02.020
  • that's when you praise. CONGREGATION: Amen. That's
  • 00:11:02.030 --> 00:11:04.180
  • right. KENNETH: That's when you praise. CONGREGATION: Yes,
  • 00:11:04.190 --> 00:11:06.160
  • that's right. KENNETH: "Well, I'm going to have it some of
  • 00:11:06.170 --> 00:11:08.290
  • these days." No you ain't, some of these days never comes. I
  • 00:11:09.000 --> 00:11:10.290
  • believe I receive it. Well, what would you do if suddenly there
  • 00:11:11.000 --> 00:11:15.270
  • was a miracle and it was just already there? Well, you'd be
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:18.150
  • shouting and praising God. Well, now you believe it's yours, so
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:22.050
  • take it. Start the shouting now. Start the praising now. Start
  • 00:11:22.060 --> 00:11:25.280
  • the worship now. Glory to God. Rather the giving some thanks,
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:29.190
  • the giving of thanks. I give you thanks and I glorify your name.
  • 00:11:29.200 --> 00:11:33.120
  • "Yeah, but Brother Copeland, you know what that boy of mine done?
  • 00:11:33.130 --> 00:11:38.010
  • He just spent all our money and wrecked our car. Now, He's in
  • 00:11:38.020 --> 00:11:42.010
  • jail." Well, what are you believing? "Well, I don't know
  • 00:11:42.020 --> 00:11:47.200
  • what to believe." Really? How about this? How about this? I
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:56.240
  • said, "How about this?" CONGREGATION: Hallelujah.
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:11:59.030
  • KENNETH: Praise God, my mother, she said she could have done
  • 00:11:59.040 --> 00:12:04.270
  • this a long time ago had she known how. She didn't know yet
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:08.210
  • about 1 Peter 5:6, "Humble yourself under the mighty hand
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:16.040
  • of God ... Casting all your care over on Him for He cares for
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:18.140
  • you." She finally just got so fed up praying over me, she
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:25.090
  • threw her Bible down on the kitchen table and she said, "If
  • 00:12:25.100 --> 00:12:31.210
  • he goes to hell it is your fault, not mine. I'm not praying
  • 00:12:31.220 --> 00:12:37.210
  • for him anymore." Gloria got saved in two weeks and I got
  • 00:12:37.220 --> 00:12:41.180
  • saved in three. She'd been praying for me for 13 years. She
  • 00:12:41.190 --> 00:12:46.070
  • said later, she said, "Huh, if I'd have known that I could've
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:50.140
  • done that at the beginning, and just start praising God, just
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:54.260
  • start thanking Him. Thank God Kenneth's in the church. Thank
  • 00:12:54.270 --> 00:12:57.190
  • God Kenneth's all right, thank God Kenneth's saved. Thank God
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:13:00.180
  • for ..." Every time she'd get to where she's feeling a little bit
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:05.010
  • better about it I'd do something else stupid, you know.
  • 00:13:05.020 --> 00:13:07.280
  • GLORIA: Surely not. KENNETH: She'd come back and
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:10.130
  • say, "Oh God, don't let him do nothing so crazy." But, she
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:14.290
  • finally just rolled all the care of it over on God and there it
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:18.130
  • was. She just started thanking Him, and Mama was big on praise.
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:23.080
  • I mean, even back before, she was a thank you, Jesus woman
  • 00:13:23.090 --> 00:13:28.150
  • even back there before she and dad received the baptism, she
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:33.010
  • had received the Spirit. She was big on thank you, Jesus, just
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:37.260
  • thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus. I'd come up with
  • 00:13:37.270 --> 00:13:41.090
  • something, I'd say, "Well, didn't, ..." and she'd say,
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:43.110
  • "Kenneth, God is not going to fall off his throne because you
  • 00:13:43.120 --> 00:13:46.170
  • did that, just give Him thanks, just thank Him." Thank you,
  • 00:13:46.180 --> 00:13:49.020
  • Jesus. Just thank you, Jesus. Then later ... I'd get so
  • 00:13:49.030 --> 00:13:54.230
  • tickled at her. We'd ask her to pray over something, or tell her
  • 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:59.030
  • about something that was going on. She'd say, "Hit it in
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:01.210
  • tongues, boy. Hit it in tongues." What's she doing?
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:04.010
  • Praise. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Praise and
  • 00:14:04.020 --> 00:14:06.000
  • Thanksgiving. Glory to God. You can just praise till you get
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:10.060
  • happy. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Pray in tongues till
  • 00:14:10.070 --> 00:14:12.100
  • just ... Pray till something happens. Glory to God. Thank
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:17.160
  • you, Lord Jesus. Glory to God. Now, "Controlling the words of
  • 00:14:17.170 --> 00:14:21.190
  • your mouth with praise and Thanksgiving." Now, here we are
  • 00:14:21.200 --> 00:14:26.110
  • on Friday. Let's go to the book of Hebrews. My, my. The most
  • 00:14:26.120 --> 00:14:33.090
  • powerful book, the advanced book of the New Testament, Hebrews
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:43.180
  • chapter 13. Oh my, my, my, my, my. Well, where should I start
  • 00:14:43.190 --> 00:14:53.000
  • here, Lord? Let's go to ... Yeah, let's do what I always,
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:59.100
  • that is land on the 8th verse. "Jesus Christ, the same
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:03.240
  • yesterday, and today, and forever." There is enough to
  • 00:15:03.250 --> 00:15:08.050
  • praise God about right there. Thank God He doesn't ever
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:11.180
  • change. He never changes. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah.
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:14.270
  • KENNETH: There's not anything so bad, and terrible, and horrible
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:18.180
  • that you can do to stop Him from loving you. CONGREGATION: Amen.
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:23.120
  • Oh, Thank you, Lord. Thank you. KENNETH: You can commit the most
  • 00:15:23.130 --> 00:15:26.070
  • horrible crime that has ever been committed in history. Now,
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:29.180
  • I'm going to say this. This is hard on people, but people like
  • 00:15:29.190 --> 00:15:35.120
  • the, the worst human beings in our time, the worst human being
  • 00:15:35.130 --> 00:15:43.200
  • of our time was Adolf Hitler. Jesus loved him. CONGREGATION:
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:48.200
  • That's right. KENNETH: He loved him. There was a, ... Oh, I
  • 00:15:48.210 --> 00:15:55.200
  • don't ... I almost said her name right then. Anyway, little
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:16:00.140
  • red-headed missionary, and she was so powerful, and somehow she
  • 00:16:00.150 --> 00:16:10.190
  • got permission to go in and pray for the Japanese warlords that
  • 00:16:10.200 --> 00:16:16.210
  • were in prison to be hung, and she just kept witnessing to
  • 00:16:16.220 --> 00:16:22.110
  • them, witnessing to them, and finally the leader of them ... I
  • 00:16:22.120 --> 00:16:27.120
  • think there was three or four others, anyway, that were right
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:33.010
  • under him. He said, "Lady, you don't know." She said, "Yes, I
  • 00:16:33.020 --> 00:16:37.030
  • know, I know who you are." "And all the things that I've done?"
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:41.120
  • She said, "Yeah, but you don't know Jesus, yet." CONGREGATION:
  • 00:16:41.130 --> 00:16:43.260
  • Amen. KENNETH: She just kept on, and just kept on, and just kept
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:47.030
  • on, and just kept on, and just kept on. Now, this was the
  • 00:16:47.040 --> 00:16:49.220
  • leading Japanese warlord of that whole mess and those right under
  • 00:16:49.230 --> 00:16:59.240
  • leading Japanese warlord of that whole mess and those right under
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:06.060
  • him. Got all of them born again. CONGREGATION: Praise God.
  • 00:17:06.070 --> 00:17:14.120
  • Hallelujah. KENNETH: Their final request was to be baptized in
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:21.160
  • water before they were hung. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah.
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:24.230
  • KENNETH: Can you see what I'm talking about? CONGREGATION:
  • 00:17:24.240 --> 00:17:27.220
  • Yes, yes. KENNETH: He loves you. CONGREGATION: Yes, He does.
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:30.250
  • KENNETH: He loves you, and that's enough right there to
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:32.110
  • just praise God. CONGREGATION: Yes, yes, yes. KENNETH: When
  • 00:17:32.120 --> 00:17:34.020
  • that struck me, struck me with such a force. Back when I was a
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:39.180
  • student I'd just be started there at ORU in 1967, and I
  • 00:17:39.190 --> 00:17:44.090
  • came across that scripture in the 17th chapter of John where
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:47.020
  • Jesus said, He prayed to the Father to show them He loved
  • 00:17:47.030 --> 00:17:49.200
  • them as much as you do me, and that just hit me. I didn't know
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:53.240
  • I was a new creature. I was just finding out things like that,
  • 00:17:53.250 --> 00:17:56.290
  • and I thought, "That can't be so. He loved me as much as he
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:18:01.150
  • does Jesus?" See, I still had my sin on my mind, and I didn't
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:08.120
  • know that it ... I knew I was born again, filled with
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:11.180
  • the Spirit. I didn't have any trouble with that, but I didn't
  • 00:18:11.190 --> 00:18:13.230
  • have revelation of being a new creature. I decided I'm just
  • 00:18:13.240 --> 00:18:18.050
  • going to start saying that, and I said it with trembling. I
  • 00:18:18.060 --> 00:18:20.210
  • really, I just, you know, to say that out loud that God loves
  • 00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:27.010
  • me as much as he does Jesus, and I just started walking the room
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:29.260
  • saying that God loves Kenneth as much as He does Jesus. Then, all
  • 00:18:29.270 --> 00:18:33.100
  • of a sudden it started making sense, started making faith to
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:35.130
  • me. Well, of course He did, He gave Jesus to get me.
  • 00:18:35.140 --> 00:18:38.070
  • CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Then, the verse of scripture,
  • 00:18:38.080 --> 00:18:40.060
  • Christ died for the ungodly, and I thought, "Boy, I qualified for
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:43.080
  • that," but then His mercy endures forever, and I qualified
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:46.140
  • for that. Oh, now you can begin to praise God, and you can begin
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:51.250
  • to worship Him, and it begins to change your life, and you come
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:55.040
  • down to that 15th verse. Glory to God. "By Him, therefore, or
  • 00:18:55.050 --> 00:19:03.000
  • by Jesus, therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:07.130
  • God continually. That is the fruit of our lips giving thanks
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:12.100
  • to His name. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Giving
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:14.180
  • thanks to that name. Glory to God. Come on, let's do it right
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:18.180
  • now. GLORIA: Hallelujah. Hallelujah. KENNETH: Oh, God, we

  • Hallelujah. KENNETH: Thank you, my Heavenly Father.
