  • how we can close them, and what it means to be truly free.
  • 00:00:05.090 --> 00:00:09.110
  • Coming up, my pastor, Robert Morris, explains
  • 00:00:09.140 --> 00:00:11.180
  • step-by-step how we get free of bondage, and at the end
  • 00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:14.180
  • of the message, leads us all in a prayer of deliverance.
  • 00:00:14.210 --> 00:00:18.030
  • 00:00:18.060 --> 00:00:32.250
  • ROBERT MORRIS: Alright, we are concluding our "Free Indeed"
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:35.290
  • series, and this is the message that I've been waiting for,
  • 00:00:36.020 --> 00:00:40.150
  • and that you've probably been waiting for,
  • 00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:42.120
  • and that your wife has been waiting for for you to get free,
  • 00:00:42.150 --> 00:00:45.140
  • and so, here it is.
  • 00:00:45.170 --> 00:00:47.130
  • I call the message today, "Set Free", and I want you
  • 00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:50.130
  • to know that I'm going to lead everyone, if you'll let me,
  • 00:00:50.160 --> 00:00:55.170
  • through a prayer of deliverance at the end of this message,
  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:59.100
  • and we're going to start down a road of freedom.
  • 00:00:59.130 --> 00:01:02.010
  • Freedom is a journey.
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:04.020
  • I did not cover material from our Freedom Ministry
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:08.210
  • and Kairos in the "Free Indeed" series, because I'm
  • 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:11.270
  • trying to get you to go to Freedom Ministry and Kairos.
  • 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:16.060
  • And, I wanted to focus, I felt the Lord told me
  • 00:01:16.090 --> 00:01:18.180
  • to focus on the deliverance part.
  • 00:01:18.210 --> 00:01:20.070
  • Remember, freedom involves deliverance
  • 00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:22.220
  • and discipleship.
  • 00:01:22.250 --> 00:01:24.070
  • Pastor Jack Hayford's quote is, "You can't disciple
  • 00:01:24.100 --> 00:01:26.150
  • a demon, and you can't cast out the flesh".
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:29.220
  • So, it's both deliverance and discipleship.
  • 00:01:29.250 --> 00:01:32.070
  • I really felt led to focus on deliverance, because many
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:35.220
  • people never get delivered from a bondage
  • 00:01:35.250 --> 00:01:38.150
  • because they don't think they can be in bondage.
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:40.290
  • But we talked about, remember, at the very first
  • 00:01:41.020 --> 00:01:42.280
  • of the series, we talked about if you leave your door
  • 00:01:43.010 --> 00:01:46.240
  • or window open in your home and a thief comes in,
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:50.120
  • he doesn't own your house, but he's in your house.
  • 00:01:50.150 --> 00:01:53.270
  • We talked about that if you took drugs or alcohol into
  • 00:01:54.000 --> 00:01:56.040
  • your body, even if you're a Christian, you're now under
  • 00:01:56.070 --> 00:01:59.250
  • the influence of that drug or that alcohol,
  • 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:03.240
  • even though you're a Christian.
  • 00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:05.020
  • In the same way, if a person begins, we use this
  • 00:02:05.050 --> 00:02:07.100
  • illustration, begins looking at pornography,
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:10.080
  • you're opening yourself up to a spirit of lust that will
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:13.280
  • come in, and you'll be under the influence of that spirit,
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:17.030
  • and that spirit needs to be cast out of you,
  • 00:02:17.060 --> 00:02:20.060
  • not in a spooky way -- it's not spooky, but
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:22.290
  • in an authoritative way in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:26.080
  • and then you need to train your mind to think differently.
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:29.040
  • So, we're going to go through and talk about being set free.
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:32.210
  • Alright?
  • 00:02:32.240 --> 00:02:33.270
  • So, I'm going to give you four keys to being set free.
  • 00:02:34.000 --> 00:02:36.080
  • Here's number one, recognize that you need help.
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:40.060
  • Recognize that you need help.
  • 00:02:40.090 --> 00:02:41.150
  • Now, we're going to springboard from the story
  • 00:02:41.180 --> 00:02:44.090
  • of the prodigal son, but I really don't have time to read
  • 00:02:44.120 --> 00:02:47.240
  • the whole thing, so you could go back and read the whole story.
  • 00:02:47.270 --> 00:02:51.250
  • You could actually take the whole chapter in Luke 15
  • 00:02:51.280 --> 00:02:54.070
  • and read it if you want to.
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:55.210
  • But, Verse 17, talking about the prodigal son, says,
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:59.020
  • "But when he came to himself".
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:01.290
  • Another way to say that is when he came to his senses.
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:04.120
  • Another way to say that is when he recognized
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:06.070
  • that he needed help.
  • 00:03:06.100 --> 00:03:07.170
  • Many believers are living in the pigpen.
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:12.150
  • Remember, this was a son.
  • 00:03:12.180 --> 00:03:15.070
  • This is a son.
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:16.260
  • He's a son, and he's living in the pigpen,
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:21.090
  • and he comes to himself.
  • 00:03:21.120 --> 00:03:23.190
  • Now, I've said this before, but I've got to continue
  • 00:03:23.220 --> 00:03:26.110
  • to say this.
  • 00:03:26.140 --> 00:03:27.180
  • The only people that I've ever seen, 30-something years
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:30.110
  • of ministry now, that can't get free, are the people
  • 00:03:30.140 --> 00:03:33.030
  • that won't admit they have a problem.
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:35.090
  • And I want you to think about that, because if you'll
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:37.100
  • simply admit it, then the Lord can set you free.
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:40.050
  • I don't want to spend much time on that, because
  • 00:03:40.080 --> 00:03:42.060
  • hopefully by now you have recognized that you need
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:46.140
  • help, and I need help.
  • 00:03:46.170 --> 00:03:47.100
  • All of us do.
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:48.130
  • So, here's number two, repent to God and others.
  • 00:03:48.160 --> 00:03:53.210
  • These next three are kind of really, once you recognize
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:56.160
  • you have a problem, here's what you need to do.
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:59.020
  • Repent to God and others.
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:02.050
  • Verse 18 says, "I will arise and go to my father,
  • 00:04:02.080 --> 00:04:05.240
  • and will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven,
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:09.130
  • and", I want you to notice the and, "and before you".
  • 00:04:09.160 --> 00:04:15.130
  • Now, I want to bring out some things about repentance
  • 00:04:15.160 --> 00:04:17.150
  • that need to be understood.
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:18.280
  • First of all, repentance and confession
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:21.150
  • are not the same thing.
  • 00:04:21.180 --> 00:04:23.180
  • Repentance includes confession.
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:26.180
  • He confessed his sin.
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:28.290
  • He confessed it.
  • 00:04:29.020 --> 00:04:30.130
  • But, you can confess your sins and not repent.
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:36.060
  • In other words, you can say, yes, I did it,
  • 00:04:36.090 --> 00:04:38.100
  • and I'm sorry, but not really repent.
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:40.250
  • Now, we need to understand what the word repentance means,
  • 00:04:40.280 --> 00:04:43.250
  • because there's a lot of wrong teaching today on repentance.
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:47.160
  • The word repentance comes from two Greek words.
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:50.010
  • It's one Greek word, but it's made up of two.
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:52.070
  • The Greek word is metanoia, metanoia.
  • 00:04:52.100 --> 00:04:58.160
  • Meta means change.
  • 00:04:58.190 --> 00:05:00.250
  • We get words such as metamorphosis from meta,
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:05.100
  • the Greek word.
  • 00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:05.290
  • It means change.
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:07.030
  • Noia means mind.
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:10.090
  • Mind, it refers to the mind.
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:12.280
  • Repentance means that you change your mind.
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:17.020
  • Now, listen to me carefully.
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:18.050
  • This is something that we teach in our Freedom
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:19.160
  • Ministry classes.
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:21.020
  • It's not just that you change your mind about your sin,
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:23.290
  • it's that you change your mind about yourself.
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:26.140
  • You change your mind about who God created you to be.
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:29.200
  • You also change your mind about God, in that God
  • 00:05:29.230 --> 00:05:32.190
  • is not this person up there just waiting for you
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:34.230
  • to mess up so He can bop you on the head.
  • 00:05:34.260 --> 00:05:37.230
  • So, you have to change the way you think.
  • 00:05:37.260 --> 00:05:40.010
  • This is a process that Christians continue.
  • 00:05:40.040 --> 00:05:42.280
  • You continue to repent from the day you get saved.
  • 00:05:43.010 --> 00:05:46.150
  • Another way to say it is this.
  • 00:05:46.180 --> 00:05:47.280
  • Romans 12 said it this way.
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:49.110
  • "Renew your mind."
  • 00:05:49.140 --> 00:05:51.260
  • Change your mind.
  • 00:05:51.290 --> 00:05:53.130
  • Now, there's some teaching today that is really good on grace,
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:57.290
  • but some people are taking it too far, and they're
  • 00:05:58.020 --> 00:06:00.140
  • taking it so far as to saying Christians don't
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:03.290
  • ever have to repent again.
  • 00:06:04.020 --> 00:06:05.140
  • Once you get saved, you never repent again.
  • 00:06:05.170 --> 00:06:07.070
  • The reason that they feel that way is they think
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:09.110
  • the word repent, and I've even heard pastors say this,
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:12.010
  • and I've even seen some biblical dictionaries define it this way,
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:16.150
  • but I think it's the wrong definition.
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:18.090
  • It includes this, but it's not a full definition.
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:20.170
  • I've had some people say, when you say what does
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:22.170
  • repent mean, here's what they say.
  • 00:06:22.200 --> 00:06:24.010
  • It means turn from your sin.
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:26.060
  • That's not what the word means!
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:27.250
  • It includes that if you're in sin.
  • 00:06:27.280 --> 00:06:30.130
  • If you're in sin and you change your mind about your sin,
  • 00:06:30.160 --> 00:06:34.150
  • then you would turn from your sin.
  • 00:06:34.180 --> 00:06:36.060
  • Okay?
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:37.130
  • But, what if you're not in sin and you change your mind?
  • 00:06:37.160 --> 00:06:39.270
  • Do you see what I'm saying?
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:41.050
  • You need to continue to change your mind.
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:44.220
  • If Christians don't need to repent, then Jesus used
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:48.260
  • the wrong word when He spoke to five of the seven churches
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:53.270
  • in Asia Minor, because five out of seven churches
  • 00:06:54.000 --> 00:06:58.180
  • in Revelation 2 and 3, Jesus said repent.
  • 00:06:58.210 --> 00:07:02.070
  • As a matter of fact, this word in the Hebrew means
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:04.080
  • the same, and it's used about God.
  • 00:07:04.110 --> 00:07:07.160
  • But, there's no translator that will do it repent.
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:10.110
  • Every time else they translate it repent,
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:13.100
  • but when it came to when it said God repented, the changed
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:16.160
  • the P to an L, and they made it relented.
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:20.200
  • God relented from the harm He was going to do.
  • 00:07:20.230 --> 00:07:24.270
  • Because they thought, well, God can't turn from His sin.
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:27.000
  • It doesn't mean turn from your sin.
  • 00:07:27.030 --> 00:07:28.220
  • It means change your mind.
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:30.170
  • God changed His mind.
  • 00:07:30.200 --> 00:07:32.020
  • Now, let me explain.
  • 00:07:32.050 --> 00:07:33.110
  • He never changed His character, but He changed His mind.
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:37.080
  • We need to change our mind about our sin, so we need
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:41.080
  • to repent to God, but here's the key, and to others.
  • 00:07:41.110 --> 00:07:49.020
  • He went to his father and repented to his father.
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:52.180
  • Let me show you a Scripture, how important it is to be right
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:56.030
  • with someone else so you can be right with God.
  • 00:07:56.060 --> 00:07:58.230
  • Matthew 5:23-24, "Therefore if you bring your gift
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:02.220
  • to the altar and there remember that your brother has something
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:06.110
  • against you, leave your gift there before the altar
  • 00:08:06.140 --> 00:08:10.080
  • and go your way.
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:11.220
  • First be reconciled to your brother, and then come
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:15.230
  • and offer your gift."
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:17.170
  • In other words, here's what God says.
  • 00:08:17.200 --> 00:08:18.270
  • If you want to get right with me, go get right with your
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:20.270
  • brother first, first, then come and get right with me.
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:24.230
  • James 5:16, "Confess your trespasses".
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:28.270
  • One version says faults, one version says sins.
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:32.200
  • "Confess your trespasses to one another,
  • 00:08:32.230 --> 00:08:35.050
  • and pray for one another that you may be healed."
  • 00:08:35.080 --> 00:08:39.240
  • The definition of this word, healed, means to free
  • 00:08:39.270 --> 00:08:43.110
  • from errors and sins.
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:45.100
  • Okay, here's what this just said.
  • 00:08:45.130 --> 00:08:46.260
  • Confess your sins to one another that you may be free.
  • 00:08:46.290 --> 00:08:51.110
  • Now, hear me.
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:53.070
  • Think about an area of your life that's been
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:55.070
  • a bondage for you.
  • 00:08:55.100 --> 00:08:57.010
  • How many times have you confessed it to God and said,
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:09:00.070
  • I'll never do it again, but you still do it again?
  • 00:09:00.100 --> 00:09:04.000
  • Okay.
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:05.030
  • Repentance means that we confess it and repent,
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:08.040
  • not only to God, but to those around us.
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:11.240
  • See, he goes to his father.
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.100
  • The prodigal son said I've sinned against God and,
  • 00:09:13.130 --> 00:09:16.140
  • he didn't say against you, he said before you.
  • 00:09:16.170 --> 00:09:19.130
  • You saw me do this.
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:20.260
  • So, he confesses it to his father.
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:22.200
  • We need to confess sin.
  • 00:09:22.230 --> 00:09:25.190
  • Listen, you don't have to stand up here with
  • 00:09:25.220 --> 00:09:27.130
  • a microphone and confess it, but you need to confess sin,
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:30.180
  • if you're married, to your spouse, to those
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:34.090
  • you're in relationship with, those you're accountable to,
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:38.020
  • to spiritual authority.
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:39.250
  • Here's what I'm saying.
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:40.270
  • Bring it out in the light.
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:43.060
  • Satan works in darkness.
  • 00:09:43.090 --> 00:09:46.040
  • And here's what we do.
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:47.030
  • We fall to this sin.
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:48.120
  • We say, Lord, I'm sorry.
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:49.130
  • I confess it to you.
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:50.100
  • I ask you to forgive me.
  • 00:09:50.130 --> 00:09:51.140
  • And we go right on, and we keep it in the dark.
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:53.250
  • If you really want to get free, bring it out in the light.
  • 00:09:53.280 --> 00:09:57.000
  • Put as much light on it as possible.
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:59.200
  • So, repent to God and others.
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:03.000
  • Here's number three, renounce the lies of Satan.
  • 00:10:03.030 --> 00:10:08.200
  • Renounce the lies of Satan.
  • 00:10:08.230 --> 00:10:11.100
  • Let me just make a very clear statement.
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:13.240
  • Every bondage begins with a lie.
  • 00:10:13.270 --> 00:10:17.280
  • Every bondage, whatever bondage you have, there's a lie
  • 00:10:18.010 --> 00:10:21.000
  • that you've believed, and you have to renew your mind,
  • 00:10:21.030 --> 00:10:24.170
  • change the way you think, so you can get out of that lie.
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:27.190
  • Look down at Verse 25.
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:30.020
  • Luke 15:25, this is talking about the older son.
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:35.110
  • "Now his older son was in the field, and as he came
  • 00:10:35.140 --> 00:10:37.230
  • and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:41.220
  • So he called one of the servants and asked
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:43.130
  • what these things meant.
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:45.010
  • And he said to him, "Your brother has come and because
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:47.130
  • he has received him", in other words, your father,
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:49.280
  • "has received him safe and sound, your father
  • 00:10:50.010 --> 00:10:52.070
  • has killed the fatted calf".
  • 00:10:52.100 --> 00:10:53.280
  • But he was angry."
  • 00:10:54.010 --> 00:10:55.140
  • The older brother was angry.
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:58.050
  • "And would not go in.
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:10:59.270
  • Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him.
  • 00:11:00.020 --> 00:11:02.010
  • So he answered and said to his father, "Lo, these many
  • 00:11:02.040 --> 00:11:04.200
  • years I have been serving you."
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:06.220
  • Now, I want you to watch the absolutes that he uses,
  • 00:11:06.250 --> 00:11:10.060
  • absolutes like always and never, okay?
  • 00:11:10.090 --> 00:11:13.000
  • "Lo, these many years I have been serving you,
  • 00:11:13.030 --> 00:11:16.000
  • I never transgressed your commandment at any time,
  • 00:11:16.030 --> 00:11:22.150
  • and yet you never gave me a young goat that I might make
  • 00:11:22.180 --> 00:11:28.230
  • merry with my friends."
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:30.130
  • Okay, well, let me just show you, there's two lies
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:32.050
  • right there.
  • 00:11:32.080 --> 00:11:33.200
  • Okay, he said, "I never transgressed your commandment
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:37.160
  • at any time".
  • 00:11:37.190 --> 00:11:38.210
  • Okay, I know that's a lie, because he was not Jesus.
  • 00:11:38.240 --> 00:11:44.030
  • Anybody here have children?
  • 00:11:44.060 --> 00:11:47.120
  • Does anyone here have a perfect child?
  • 00:11:47.150 --> 00:11:50.010
  • No.
  • 00:11:50.040 --> 00:11:51.050
  • They transgress.
  • 00:11:51.080 --> 00:11:52.220
  • Here's what he said.
  • 00:11:52.250 --> 00:11:53.170
  • I never disobeyed you.
  • 00:11:53.200 --> 00:11:54.210
  • I've never done one thing wrong.
  • 00:11:54.240 --> 00:11:57.200
  • That's a lie!
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:11:58.290
  • He believes a lie.
  • 00:11:59.020 --> 00:12:00.110
  • The other lie, I can show you that it's a lie.
  • 00:12:00.140 --> 00:12:02.260
  • He said, you never even gave me a goat.
  • 00:12:02.290 --> 00:12:05.230
  • Never even gave me one goat.
  • 00:12:05.260 --> 00:12:07.280
  • Okay.
  • 00:12:08.010 --> 00:12:09.010
  • At the first of the story, the younger son goes
  • 00:12:09.040 --> 00:12:11.160
  • and says, give me my inheritance.
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:13.160
  • Let me show you this, Verse 12.
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:15.090
  • "And the younger of them said to his father,
  • 00:12:15.120 --> 00:12:17.140
  • "Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me."
  • 00:12:17.170 --> 00:12:20.200
  • Now, watch this carefully.
  • 00:12:20.230 --> 00:12:22.050
  • "So he divided to them his livelihood."
  • 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:30.170
  • Do all of you see the word them?
  • 00:12:30.200 --> 00:12:33.040
  • So, he divided to them his livelihood.
  • 00:12:33.070 --> 00:12:37.140
  • And, because the firstborn, the older, according
  • 00:12:37.170 --> 00:12:39.230
  • to the Bible, he actually got twice as much.
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:43.100
  • So, the younger son got a third, and the older son got
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:47.020
  • two-thirds, but he said you never even gave me one goat.
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:52.260
  • I think the father's thinking, uh, I gave you
  • 00:12:52.290 --> 00:12:55.000
  • two-thirds of the company.
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:58.110
  • I never gave you one goat, I gave you two-thirds.
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:01.250
  • Here, look at this, too.
  • 00:13:01.280 --> 00:13:03.160
  • Verse 31, he said to him, "Son, you are always with me,
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:07.290
  • and all that I have is yours."
  • 00:13:08.020 --> 00:13:11.160
  • "You are always with me, and all that I have is yours."
  • 00:13:11.190 --> 00:13:17.270
  • Okay, I want you to think about something.
  • 00:13:18.000 --> 00:13:19.280
  • That statement, you know, I consider myself
  • 00:13:20.010 --> 00:13:23.070
  • a grammarian, you know.
  • 00:13:23.100 --> 00:13:25.020
  • Grammar jumps out at me, just jumps.
  • 00:13:25.050 --> 00:13:27.170
  • I try not to let it, but it does.
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:29.050
  • It's going to no matter what.
  • 00:13:29.080 --> 00:13:30.210
  • No matter what, it's going to.
  • 00:13:30.240 --> 00:13:33.020
  • Debbie will ask me to read something, and she'll say
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:35.020
  • to me, I'm not asking you to correct the grammar,
  • 00:13:35.050 --> 00:13:38.230
  • I'm just asking you to look at the content.
  • 00:13:38.260 --> 00:13:41.060
  • I say to her, Sugar, I can't see the content until
  • 00:13:41.090 --> 00:13:44.060
  • I correct the grammar.
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:45.170
  • Okay?
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:46.190
  • So, just let me do it my way, alright?
  • 00:13:46.220 --> 00:13:48.260
  • So, okay, this statement is odd grammatically.
  • 00:13:48.290 --> 00:13:53.000
  • It's absolutely true scripturally, obviously,
  • 00:13:53.030 --> 00:13:55.090
  • but it's odd.
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:56.130
  • It begins in second person, ends in first person.
  • 00:13:56.160 --> 00:13:59.170
  • He says, "You are always with me, and all that I have
  • 00:13:59.200 --> 00:14:03.170
  • is", all that I have, he now is the subject, "is yours".
  • 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:08.270
  • I would have thought it would have said,
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:10.200
  • I am always with you, and all that I have is yours.
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:15.090
  • Because see, we know God's always with us.
  • 00:14:15.120 --> 00:14:17.020
  • God said I'll never leave you or forsake you,
  • 00:14:17.050 --> 00:14:19.000
  • and I'm with you until the end of the age, always.
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:22.020
  • He makes this statement.
  • 00:14:22.050 --> 00:14:23.090
  • "You are always with me, and all that I have is yours."
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:25.150
  • Here's what that says to me.
  • 00:14:25.180 --> 00:14:26.250
  • As long as we're with Him, all that He has is ours.
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:31.000
  • That's what He's trying to say.
  • 00:14:31.030 --> 00:14:32.070
  • Son, you were here with me the whole time.
  • 00:14:32.100 --> 00:14:35.100
  • You had everything. Okay.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:37.120
  • The older son never left home,
  • 00:14:37.150 --> 00:14:39.250
  • but he still went into bondage.
  • 00:14:39.280 --> 00:14:42.090
  • He was in bondage to bitterness, unforgiveness,
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:45.130
  • resentment, hate, jealousy, envy.
  • 00:14:45.160 --> 00:14:49.010
  • His younger son comes home, he's not going to the party.
  • 00:14:49.040 --> 00:14:53.150
  • Now, hear me.
  • 00:14:53.180 --> 00:14:55.050
  • When we tell the story of the prodigal son, there are
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:57.160
  • many, many people in church that think, that's not me.
  • 00:14:57.190 --> 00:15:01.160
  • Well, there are two sons in this story.
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:05.080
  • Now, I just want you to just be honest.
  • 00:15:05.110 --> 00:15:08.050
  • Do you have a tendency to be the older son?
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.170
  • Do you have a tendency to think, well,
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:13.080
  • I've never left home like those other people have?
  • 00:15:13.110 --> 00:15:16.260
  • I've never transgressed the Father.
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:18.270
  • I mean, I've made mistakes, but I've never, and then,
  • 00:15:19.000 --> 00:15:22.090
  • Lord, look how you're blessing them.
  • 00:15:22.120 --> 00:15:23.250
  • You haven't blessed me like that.
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:26.210
  • Jealousy, envy, strife, bitterness,
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:30.140
  • unforgiveness, resentment?
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:32.170
  • I'm going to tell you something maybe you've never thought of.
  • 00:15:32.200 --> 00:15:34.280
  • The older son was just as in bondage as the younger son,
  • 00:15:35.010 --> 00:15:40.170
  • just as in bondage.
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:42.120
  • Now, this is a lie that is all through society,
  • 00:15:42.150 --> 00:15:49.170
  • let me say it that way.
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:51.070
  • Let me use some examples, and I asked their permission
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:53.110
  • if I could use this example.
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:55.010
  • Debbie has a sister named Mary.
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:58.170
  • It's only the two of them.
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:02.080
  • Mary lives here now.
  • 00:16:02.110 --> 00:16:05.050
  • Mary and her husband, Lloyd, own some insurance
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:07.170
  • companies, and they lived in west Texas for years.
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:10.040
  • They still have the insurance company in west Texas.
  • 00:16:10.070 --> 00:16:12.050
  • They have another one in another part of Texas,
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:13.220
  • and they have one here now.
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:14.290
  • But, they moved here a couple of years ago, and let
  • 00:16:15.020 --> 00:16:16.250
  • me tell you why they moved, because they saw
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:18.190
  • the benefit of being a part of a church where they could really
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:22.060
  • grow in their relationship with the Lord.
  • 00:16:22.090 --> 00:16:24.270
  • And so, they moved here and started another company,
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:27.190
  • and run their other companies from here so they could
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:31.220
  • be a part of Gateway Church.
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:33.050
  • Okay.
  • 00:16:33.080 --> 00:16:34.150
  • In the process of talking one day, now, you're going
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:37.150
  • to relate to this.
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.030
  • Debbie and Mary are talking, and in the process of talking,
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:41.290
  • they have great parents, love the Lord, mother lives here.
  • 00:16:42.020 --> 00:16:45.200
  • Debbie and Mary's mom lives here, father's gone on to be
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:47.260
  • with the Lord, but they grew up in a great Christian home.
  • 00:16:47.290 --> 00:16:50.070
  • But in the process of talking one day,
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:52.030
  • they realized that at some time in their life,
  • 00:16:52.060 --> 00:16:55.100
  • each of them believed that the other was the favorite.
  • 00:16:55.130 --> 00:17:01.230
  • Each of them believed the other one's the favorite.
  • 00:17:01.260 --> 00:17:06.230
  • Anyone relate to this?
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.250
  • Okay, can I just tell you what that is?
  • 00:17:08.280 --> 00:17:10.180
  • That's a lie.
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:12.060
  • It's a lie of Satan.
  • 00:17:12.090 --> 00:17:13.160
  • Let me go on with some lies.
  • 00:17:13.190 --> 00:17:15.080
  • Have you ever heard this?
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:16.080
  • People say things like this.
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:18.020
  • Well, I was the oldest child, so I always have
  • 00:17:18.050 --> 00:17:20.000
  • to be in control.
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:22.180
  • Why don't you just say it straight out?
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:23.290
  • So I have a demon of control.
  • 00:17:24.020 --> 00:17:28.160
  • Well, I'm the youngest child, so I always
  • 00:17:28.190 --> 00:17:30.250
  • have to have my way.
  • 00:17:30.280 --> 00:17:32.180
  • Why don't you say it?
  • 00:17:32.210 --> 00:17:33.150
  • I have a demon of selfishness.
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:35.250
  • Well, I'm the middle child, so I'm the neglected one.
  • 00:17:35.280 --> 00:17:41.180
  • Or, I was an only child, so.
  • 00:17:41.210 --> 00:17:45.010
  • I grew up in a large family, so.
  • 00:17:45.040 --> 00:17:48.030
  • Listen to me!
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:49.140
  • You've been adopted into a new family.
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:53.020
  • A new family.
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:54.040
  • It doesn't matter what family you grew up in,
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:55.270
  • you're in a new family now.
  • 00:17:56.000 --> 00:17:57.160
  • I'll tell you who you are.
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:58.170
  • You're a child of God.
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:00.100
  • You were born again by the Word of God, kept by the power
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:02.080
  • of God, sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise until
  • 00:18:02.110 --> 00:18:04.100
  • the day of redemption.
  • 00:18:04.130 --> 00:18:05.220
  • Seated in heavenly places, He's put all things under your feet.
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:08.030
  • He's given you authority over all of the power of the enemy.
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:10.040
  • You're more than a conqueror through Him, you always
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:11.240
  • triumph in Him, and greater is He in you than
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:13.230
  • he that's in the world.
  • 00:18:13.260 --> 00:18:15.050
  • That's who you are!
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:17.170
  • That's who you are now.
  • 00:18:17.200 --> 00:18:21.090
  • So, if you're going to get free,
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:22.130
  • you're going to have to renounce the lies of Satan.
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:24.080
  • And here's number four, receive the gifts of the Father.
  • 00:18:24.110 --> 00:18:30.120
  • Receive the gifts of the Father.
  • 00:18:30.150 --> 00:18:32.020
  • Obviously, this one point could be a series.
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:35.250
  • Verse 22 says, "The father said to his servants, bring out
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:38.160
  • the best robe, put it on him, put a ring on his hand,
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:42.000
  • sandals on his feet".
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:43.170
  • So, what do they represent?
  • 00:18:43.200 --> 00:18:45.090
  • Quickly, the robe represents the robe of righteousness.
  • 00:18:45.120 --> 00:18:49.150
  • Isaiah 61:10, "He's covered me with the robe
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:51.180
  • of righteousness".
  • 00:18:51.210 --> 00:18:52.280
  • If you're going to get free, you're going to have to receive
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:54.290
  • forgiveness and the righteousness of God.
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:57.160
  • You're righteousness comes from God and what Jesus
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:18:59.260
  • did on the cross, not from your own works.
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:02.200
  • Secondly, the ring of authority.
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:04.160
  • The ring represents authority.
  • 00:19:04.190 --> 00:19:06.120
  • When Pharaoh put Joseph in command, he gave him his ring
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:11.220
  • and he said no one can go anywhere or do anything
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:13.290
  • without your authority, you're the second highest in the land.
  • 00:19:14.020 --> 00:19:16.170
  • And he gave him his ring to prove it.
  • 00:19:16.200 --> 00:19:18.070
  • Jesus gave us authority in Luke 10:19, "Behold, I give
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:21.020
  • you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions".
  • 00:19:21.050 --> 00:19:24.220
  • That's demonic spirits.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:25.280
  • It represents demonic spirits, and you can go back
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:27.130
  • and read the context to see.
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:29.050
  • "And over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall
  • 00:19:29.080 --> 00:19:32.100
  • by any means hurt you."
  • 00:19:32.130 --> 00:19:34.060
  • We have to receive God's authority over the enemy.
  • 00:19:34.090 --> 00:19:36.060
  • These are gifts from the Father.
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:37.240
  • The third, the shoes of power, the shoes of power,
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:42.000
  • and the gift of power from the Lord is not something,
  • 00:19:42.030 --> 00:19:46.000
  • it's someone.
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:47.270
  • Acts 1:8, "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:52.020
  • has come upon you".
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:55.090
  • I want you to bow your heads and close your eyes.
  • 00:19:55.120 --> 00:19:59.190
  • In just a moment, I'm going to pray over you.
  • 00:19:59.220 --> 00:20:02.240
  • I'd like to pray over everybody in the church,
  • 00:20:02.270 --> 00:20:06.160
  • and here's the reason I say that.
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:08.090
  • If there's any bondage in your life, wouldn't you want
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:11.020
  • to get free?
  • 00:20:11.050 --> 00:20:12.210
  • Sure you would!
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:14.180
  • So, in just a moment, I'm going to ask you to stand.
  • 00:20:14.210 --> 00:20:19.000
  • As you stand, I'm going to lead you in a prayer,
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:25.200
  • and then I'm going to take authority over Satan.
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:28.210
  • So, I want to pray for you, and the whole church,
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:33.080
  • at every campus.
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:34.260
  • So, I'd like to ask you, if you want to get free,
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:37.070
  • to stand up.
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:38.220
  • Just stand up right where you are.
  • 00:20:38.250 --> 00:20:42.180
  • And I really want to pray over everyone.
  • 00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:44.200
  • I don't want you to feel embarrassed if you don't
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:46.000
  • want to stand.
  • 00:20:46.030 --> 00:20:47.040
  • Maybe you're a guest or something, but I'd really
  • 00:20:47.070 --> 00:20:49.100
  • like to pray over every person here, and just take
  • 00:20:49.130 --> 00:20:51.220
  • authority over the enemy and tell him to go.
  • 00:20:51.250 --> 00:20:54.210
  • So, I'd like to ask you to just pray after me out loud,
  • 00:20:54.240 --> 00:20:58.280
  • alright?
  • 00:20:59.010 --> 00:21:00.070
  • I just want you to say Father, I ask you to forgive me
  • 00:21:00.100 --> 00:21:04.240
  • for all of my sin, and I ask you to release me
  • 00:21:04.270 --> 00:21:10.010
  • from every bondage, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:21:10.040 --> 00:21:15.190
  • Now, I want to pray for you.
  • 00:21:15.220 --> 00:21:16.260
  • Lord, right now by the authority you've given me,
  • 00:21:16.290 --> 00:21:19.080
  • I take authority over Satan, and I address every demonic
  • 00:21:19.110 --> 00:21:22.090
  • spirit that's held my brothers and sisters in bondage,
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:24.260
  • in Jesus' name, and I command you to go, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:28.210
  • In Jesus' name, it is not the authority of my voice.
  • 00:21:28.240 --> 00:21:32.220
  • It is the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:21:32.250 --> 00:21:36.080
  • My brothers and sisters are covered by the blood
  • 00:21:36.110 --> 00:21:38.240
  • of the Lamb.
  • 00:21:38.270 --> 00:21:39.290
  • They overcome by the word of their testimony.
  • 00:21:40.020 --> 00:21:42.030
  • They're born again and not of corruptible seed,
  • 00:21:42.060 --> 00:21:44.050
  • but of incorruptible seed that lives and abides forever,
  • 00:21:44.080 --> 00:21:47.010
  • and the angels who are mighty in strength watch over
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:49.020
  • your word to perform it, and the Word of God
  • 00:21:49.050 --> 00:21:51.050
  • is living and active, and sharper than any
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:52.250
  • two-edged sword.
  • 00:21:52.280 --> 00:21:54.030
  • It's sweeter than honey and purer than gold, and His name
  • 00:21:54.060 --> 00:21:57.170
  • is the Word of God, and by the Word of God
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:00.080
  • and by the blood of the Lamb, we are set free today.
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:03.100
  • I take authority over every spirit of bitterness,
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:06.060
  • or unforgiveness, or resentment, or hate,
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:08.260
  • or malice, or envy, or jealousy, and I command

  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:43.290
  • I command you to go, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:45.230
  • I break every word, curse, and spell spoken into
  • 00:23:45.260 --> 00:23:49.140
  • my brothers, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:51.030
  • Every generational curse, I command you to go right now,
  • 00:23:51.060 --> 00:23:54.080
  • in Jesus' name.
  • 00:23:54.110 --> 00:23:55.200
  • Every demonic spirit that has held my brothers and sisters
  • 00:23:55.230 --> 00:23:59.270
  • in bondage, at every campus, listening to my voice
  • 00:24:00.020 --> 00:24:02.250
  • on the internet right now, on television, I command
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:05.210
  • you to go right now, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:08.290
  • Thank you, Lord!
  • 00:24:09.190 --> 00:24:11.130
  • Isn't it amazing that we have the power to trample
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:15.120
  • on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy?
  • 00:24:15.150 --> 00:24:19.160
  • And I just took authority over every demonic spirit coming
  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:22.110
  • against you, and I promise you, they have to go
  • 00:24:22.140 --> 00:24:26.020
  • by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ -- not my
  • 00:24:26.050 --> 00:24:29.010
  • authority, but the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:24:29.040 --> 00:24:32.250
  • I want to encourage you to continue this process
  • 00:24:32.280 --> 00:24:36.190
  • of freedom.
  • 00:24:36.220 --> 00:24:37.240
  • If you haven't gotten the CDs and the DVDs from
  • 00:24:37.270 --> 00:24:40.170
  • this whole series, please get them, because I cover more
  • 00:24:40.200 --> 00:24:44.080
  • material than I could have covered during
  • 00:24:44.110 --> 00:24:46.060
  • the television program, and you may have missed some shows.
  • 00:24:46.090 --> 00:24:49.070

  • 00:25:07.220 --> 00:25:09.180
  • demonically oppressed?
  • 00:25:09.210 --> 00:25:11.130
  • Even though we've received salvation
  • 00:25:11.160 --> 00:25:13.070
  • and complete restoration through Jesus,
  • 00:25:13.100 --> 00:25:15.150
  • it's possible for the enemy to have a stronghold in areas
  • 00:25:15.180 --> 00:25:18.020
  • that we leave open to him.
  • 00:25:18.050 --> 00:25:19.270
  • But the good news is that God wants you to be free
  • 00:25:20.000 --> 00:25:22.050

  • 00:25:34.190 --> 00:25:36.190
