  • Welcome to Ron Carpenter Television.
  • 00:00:01.170 --> 00:00:03.060
  • We live in the day of the influencer.
  • 00:00:03.070 --> 00:00:06.160
  • Yes, when you can have a career goal
  • 00:00:06.170 --> 00:00:08.280
  • of just influencing people.
  • 00:00:08.290 --> 00:00:12.080
  • It's legitimate, it's awesome.
  • 00:00:12.090 --> 00:00:14.100
  • We can influence earth but who influences heaven?
  • 00:00:14.110 --> 00:00:17.240
  • Can you influence heaven?
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.170
  • Stick around, we'll talk about it.
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:21.040
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:00:21.050 --> 00:00:23.220
  • RCTV 253 Message:9-22-19 Airs:11-17-19
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:37.040
  • Influencer, how many believe you influence somebody?
  • 00:00:37.050 --> 00:00:40.010
  • Just wave at me if you influence somebody.
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:42.070
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:44.120
  • Well, I decided to kind of take
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:48.050
  • a little cut off of a popular new career that is emerging
  • 00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:52.170
  • in our world, it's called influencers.
  • 00:00:53.230 --> 00:00:55.130
  • If you dabble in any way whatsoever with social media,
  • 00:00:55.140 --> 00:01:00.140
  • you'll find out that now there are people
  • 00:01:01.200 --> 00:01:03.030
  • with the career goal, they aspire to influence.
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:07.190
  • So there are people that have gathered
  • 00:01:07.200 --> 00:01:09.100
  • enough of a following, to where now,
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:12.220
  • companies will pay them to influence others
  • 00:01:12.230 --> 00:01:16.110
  • with their products.
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:17.240
  • So maybe it's a fitness product,
  • 00:01:17.250 --> 00:01:19.120
  • maybe it's a health product, maybe it's a medical product,
  • 00:01:19.130 --> 00:01:23.100
  • maybe it is a makeup product.
  • 00:01:24.140 --> 00:01:27.130
  • I've seen some of them, maybe it's fashion.
  • 00:01:27.140 --> 00:01:30.130
  • But they will pay these people just to influence you.
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:35.140
  • Wow, while there's a lot of people
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:39.100
  • that's trying to get a voice in the world
  • 00:01:39.110 --> 00:01:40.290
  • and get a platform to influence each other,
  • 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:44.210
  • I'm going to take on a whole different note today.
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:47.230
  • Who influences heaven?
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:50.260
  • Can heaven be influenced?
  • 00:01:54.210 --> 00:01:56.200
  • Can you do something here and it makes heaven move?
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:02:03.270
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:06.290
  • It's one thing to influence you,
  • 00:02:07.000 --> 00:02:08.230
  • but if I can influence heaven.
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:10.100
  • And I want to raise up in the next few weeks
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:14.280
  • a group of influencers.
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:17.020
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:19.140
  • That know how to move the heavens on their behalf,
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:22.120
  • whoa, I feel this thing.
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:23.200
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:26.130
  • It is my custom whenever I open up a series,
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:28.200
  • I take the first message of the series
  • 00:02:28.210 --> 00:02:31.130
  • to do a lot of what I call laying a foundation.
  • 00:02:31.140 --> 00:02:34.240
  • It is a huge responsibility that I have,
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:38.010
  • to have this microphone before you and before this world,
  • 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:42.130
  • because the Bible says,
  • 00:02:42.140 --> 00:02:43.200
  • "To him whom is given much, much is required."
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:45.280
  • I shudder in my shoes to think of the responsibility
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:52.010
  • that I'm accountable for everything I tell you.
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:55.110
  • And so I put a lot of time
  • 00:02:56.190 --> 00:02:58.050
  • and I put a lot of emphasis on it,
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:03:00.210
  • to not just throw things out there, but to be complete.
  • 00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:04.180
  • I've often said I want to pastor an energetic
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:08.210
  • and an intensely fiercely in love with Jesus people.
  • 00:03:08.220 --> 00:03:12.040
  • But I don't want to pastor people who just shout
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:14.230
  • but go home dumb as a rock.
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.250
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:20.060
  • I want you to be able to engage
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:22.270
  • in conversation intelligently
  • 00:03:22.280 --> 00:03:25.150
  • about your faith and about your God.
  • 00:03:26.220 --> 00:03:28.250
  • And so when I teach, I don't just throw truths out there.
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:34.120
  • I like to build the whole thing.
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:38.090
  • So that when you leave,
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:39.220
  • you've got it and you can discuss it,
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:41.160
  • and you can make it a part of your living your life.
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:44.200
  • And so today I'm going to ask you to be deeply engaged
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:48.220
  • because there's not going to be as much jumping
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:50.270
  • and running and shouting. I love to do that,
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:54.110
  • but today's content just won't allow it.
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:58.120
  • But man, I'm going to tell you, you could feel the weight of it.
  • 00:03:59.260 --> 00:04:02.200
  • And the first service, I mean, as I was speaking
  • 00:04:02.210 --> 00:04:04.210
  • you could just feel the weight of it
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:06.070
  • going through the atmosphere and it's life changing.
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:10.120
  • Some of the stuff I'm teaching today
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:12.270
  • I've told somewhat before,
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:14.130
  • but this series I've never taught before.
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:17.040
  • It's all brand new.
  • 00:04:17.050 --> 00:04:19.000
  • I need, while he plays for you, to let me roll
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:22.060
  • about six or seven minutes and just talk, very important.
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:26.130
  • Preachers, pastors, leaders are always trying to find
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:33.290
  • some motivation to get people to pray.
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:36.060
  • The weight of your relationship with God rest on three legs,
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:42.140
  • your worship, your prayer life, and the word.
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:45.150
  • If you don't have those in strength,
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:51.040
  • you're going to struggle when adversity comes.
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:53.140
  • But most people don't pray, and I call it like it is.
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:58.180
  • They don't pray because it's boring.
  • 00:04:58.190 --> 00:05:00.140
  • I remember when I gave my heart to Jesus,
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:04.100
  • everybody started saying, you know,
  • 00:05:04.110 --> 00:05:05.150
  • "You got to develop a prayer life,
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:06.220
  • "you got to spend time with God,
  • 00:05:06.230 --> 00:05:07.290
  • "you got to spend time every day."
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:09.180
  • And I remember I go in my dorm room and dim the lights
  • 00:05:09.190 --> 00:05:12.080
  • and I'd have a little pillow laid on the floor,
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:14.240
  • and I'd get down and I'd lay across the floor
  • 00:05:14.250 --> 00:05:17.140
  • and I start praying and man I called out every topic I knew.
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:20.290
  • And I called every name I knew,
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:23.000
  • and I've looked back up at my clock
  • 00:05:23.010 --> 00:05:24.150
  • and four minutes are gone by.
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:25.280
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:29.090
  • Now, there's already a joke that if you can't find a pastor,
  • 00:05:31.070 --> 00:05:34.290
  • he'll be in there praying.
  • 00:05:35.250 --> 00:05:37.040
  • Over these 30 years, it's become very easy to talk to God.
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:43.210
  • But I have understanding, let me tell you something.
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:47.240
  • The only thing you need as motivation to pray
  • 00:05:49.160 --> 00:05:52.190
  • is to see your prayers answered.
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:54.130
  • If your prayers get answered, I don't have to teach on it,
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:06:00.050
  • I don't have to have a prayer conference,
  • 00:06:00.060 --> 00:06:02.060
  • you don't have to read a book.
  • 00:06:02.070 --> 00:06:04.000
  • If you say your prayers get answered,
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:05.270
  • I will never have to talk about prayer.
  • 00:06:05.280 --> 00:06:07.060
  • You'll do it all the time.
  • 00:06:07.070 --> 00:06:08.160
  • There is a reason prayers aren't answered,
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:12.250
  • your God is not a tease.
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:15.000
  • Your God is not one who enjoys seeing you get on your knees
  • 00:06:16.130 --> 00:06:19.130
  • for 10 years and beg.
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:20.270
  • That is not your God.
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:23.210
  • Here is where I'm going with this teaching.
  • 00:06:24.250 --> 00:06:27.170
  • What I'm going to try to help us understand
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:30.290
  • is that the heavens are all about legalities.
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:34.050
  • I've never heard anybody preach this.
  • 00:06:35.230 --> 00:06:37.220
  • Maybe they have I haven't heard it.
  • 00:06:37.230 --> 00:06:40.040
  • If you read your Bible,
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:41.120
  • all of Heaven is set up like a courtroom.
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.060
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:46.250
  • The Bible talks about the great cloud of witnesses.
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:50.160
  • The Bible talks about, enter the throne room boldly
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:56.100
  • and make your petitions known, your petitioning the court.
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:07:00.290
  • The Bible talks about Jesus the only mediator
  • 00:07:03.080 --> 00:07:05.250
  • between God and man, he's the lawyer for the defense.
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:08.100
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:12.070
  • The Bible says that Satan is the accuser of the brethren,
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:15.110
  • he's the prosecutor.
  • 00:07:15.120 --> 00:07:16.180
  • A lot of times we talk about spiritual warfare,
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:23.130
  • spiritual warfare in a courtroom there is no warfare,
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:26.030
  • there's only a decision.
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:27.100
  • If the judge rules in your favor it's over.
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:32.110
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:35.170
  • And when we pray,
  • 00:07:35.180 --> 00:07:37.070
  • there are protocols and legalities to prayer,
  • 00:07:38.130 --> 00:07:42.010
  • and the way that you approach it.
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:44.250
  • And when we don't when we just fall to our knees
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:47.130
  • and start splattering out desires and wishes,
  • 00:07:47.140 --> 00:07:51.060
  • that's not a prayer life.
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.200
  • And since God has shown me these things in the word
  • 00:07:54.030 --> 00:07:56.100
  • and I've put them to use, if I could be very honest with you
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:08:00.100
  • I see very little prayers go unanswered.
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:02.230
  • Sometimes the results are almost immediate.
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:07.240
  • But I've never really taught this to anybody
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:10.100
  • because I had to get a firm grip on it myself.
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:13.190
  • It's intense, it's deep, and if you can hang in here with me
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:18.090
  • pay attention and stay engaged it's game changer teaching.
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:21.270
  • Are you ready to roll with making we roll a little further?
  • 00:08:21.280 --> 00:08:24.040
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:24.290
  • Keep playing, Brandon.
  • 00:08:25.000 --> 00:08:25.280
  • Turn to Genesis 1.
  • 00:08:25.290 --> 00:08:28.100
  • For those of you not familiar with your Bible,
  • 00:08:28.110 --> 00:08:30.260
  • it's about as far left as you can go.
  • 00:08:30.270 --> 00:08:33.150
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:08:33.160 --> 00:08:36.250
  • Genesis, chapter 1, your phone if you don't have any device
  • 00:08:36.260 --> 00:08:39.050
  • or don't have a Bible, we'll put it on the screen.
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:44.000
  • That's going to be my text,
  • 00:08:44.010 --> 00:08:45.060
  • I want to tell you about something the first,
  • 00:08:45.070 --> 00:08:48.070
  • here again, laying foundations.
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:49.260
  • Luke 19, throw that on the screen if you would please
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:53.040
  • before I read Genesis 1.
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:54.150
  • This is a truth that Jesus taught right before his death.
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:09:01.130
  • Jesus was crucified, he was raised from the dead,
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:06.000
  • he made several appearances,
  • 00:09:06.010 --> 00:09:08.030
  • and then he ascended back into heaven.
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:10.150
  • The Bible says, "He said, it is finished."
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:13.020
  • There's nothing else to be done.
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:16.140
  • And the Bible says,
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:19.030
  • "He ever sits at the right hand of the Father,
  • 00:09:19.040 --> 00:09:20.170
  • "and he makes intercession for you and me,"
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:22.170
  • that does not mean he's praying.
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:24.220
  • That means he's the mediator, he's the go between.
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:27.100
  • I can only approach God in Jesus name.
  • 00:09:28.150 --> 00:09:30.220
  • The Bible declares he's the only mediator.
  • 00:09:31.250 --> 00:09:35.050
  • So, I have to abide by that.
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:36.220
  • Having said that, before Jesus died, he taught this parable
  • 00:09:38.060 --> 00:09:42.280
  • in what it's going to be between him going back to heaven
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:48.010
  • and his second return.
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:49.290
  • What needs to be taking place in the meantime.
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:53.190
  • I was kind of raised in churches,
  • 00:09:55.020 --> 00:09:57.070
  • where everybody got behind stained glass windows,
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:10:00.100
  • and prayed for Jesus to hurry up and come back
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:03.090
  • and rescue us from a life that we felt powerless to change.
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:08.020
  • You are not meant to live life powerlessly.
  • 00:10:10.050 --> 00:10:14.170
  • You are not meant to sit here
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:17.110
  • and let life beat you around
  • 00:10:17.120 --> 00:10:19.050
  • and buffet you like waves in an ocean.
  • 00:10:19.060 --> 00:10:21.100
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:22.170
  • You were put here to rule your world.
  • 00:10:22.180 --> 00:10:25.230
  • Jesus didn't die a horrible death on the cross
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:28.200
  • so you could pray a prayer come to church and sing songs.
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:32.040
  • Jesus died not so you could do something
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:36.060
  • but so you could be something.
  • 00:10:36.070 --> 00:10:38.080
  • And I'm going to tell you what that is because you don't know
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:42.060
  • what you can do till you find out what you are.
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:44.220
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:10:47.190 --> 00:10:49.050
  • Earth was never meant to operate apart from heaven.
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:53.020
  • It was meant to operate just like heaven.
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:55.250
  • And God put something on Earth that was just like him
  • 00:10:55.260 --> 00:10:59.280
  • to govern the earth, the way that he governs the heavens.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:03.160
  • - [Announcer] No doubt everyone

  • wants their prayers answered.
  • 00:11:05.010 --> 00:11:06.160
  • In this series, Pastor Ron teaches us practical steps
  • 00:11:06.170 --> 00:11:09.130
  • on how to approach God directly.
  • 00:11:09.140 --> 00:11:11.080
  • - In your house, you represent the government of heaven.
  • 00:11:11.090 --> 00:11:14.190
  • In a fight, you represent the government of heaven,
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:17.040
  • you are a citizen of heaven and you are an ambassador here.
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:20.170
  • So you got to go into that argument saying,
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:23.010
  • "What would happen say?"
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:24.130
  • You got to go into that problem saying,
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:26.150
  • "What would heaven do?"
  • 00:11:26.160 --> 00:11:27.240
  • I am representing representing heaven
  • 00:11:27.250 --> 00:11:29.040
  • I'm not representing Ron.

  • - So Jesus taught this truth
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:51.020
  • and he said, "He called 10 of his servants
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:55.110
  • "and delivered them 10 pounds.
  • 00:11:55.120 --> 00:11:57.000
  • "And he said until I come back occupy," occupy.
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:12:01.170
  • I'm leaving, I will return again.
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:10.160
  • In the space in between occupy.
  • 00:12:10.170 --> 00:12:13.160
  • What in the world does that mean, occupy what?
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:18.080
  • I want to announce to you today,
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:22.290
  • your job is not to get up Monday morning and beat the devil.
  • 00:12:23.000 --> 00:12:26.250
  • But now listening to most preachers, you would not get that,
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:32.010
  • because if you listen to preachers, if you remove the devil,
  • 00:12:32.020 --> 00:12:35.010
  • you remove 80% of their preaching content.
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:37.130
  • And do this to the devil and tell the devil this,
  • 00:12:38.190 --> 00:12:40.290
  • and point your finger at the devil,
  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:42.150
  • and get the devil under your feet,
  • 00:12:42.160 --> 00:12:44.030
  • and tell him I changed my mind,
  • 00:12:44.040 --> 00:12:45.130
  • and tell him to get out of my house.
  • 00:12:45.140 --> 00:12:47.160
  • And I'm like, "Oh, this devil guy He's an aggravation."
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:50.110
  • Jesus thoroughly and completely
  • 00:12:53.110 --> 00:12:56.110
  • defeated Satan at the cross of Calvary
  • 00:12:57.170 --> 00:13:00.170
  • and it will never be undone and it will never come unraveled
  • 00:13:00.180 --> 00:13:04.250
  • and there's nothing you can do to improve upon it.
  • 00:13:04.260 --> 00:13:07.280
  • Colossians 1 says, "He defeated him so thoroughly
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:10.290
  • "that he made an open spectacle of him."
  • 00:13:11.000 --> 00:13:13.050
  • In other words, Jesus mocked him,
  • 00:13:13.060 --> 00:13:15.000
  • he defeated him so thoroughly.
  • 00:13:15.010 --> 00:13:17.100
  • My job is not to defeat the devil Jesus defeated the devil.
  • 00:13:17.110 --> 00:13:21.150
  • And how arrogant it would be of me,
  • 00:13:21.160 --> 00:13:24.050
  • to think out and bring some defeat to the devil
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:26.220
  • that's greater than the blood.
  • 00:13:26.230 --> 00:13:28.140
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:32.000
  • But you say, "Well pastor that sounds good, I even clapped."
  • 00:13:35.050 --> 00:13:38.190
  • But there is some fight in my house.
  • 00:13:39.250 --> 00:13:42.200
  • And if the devil's bound is on a mighty long chain,
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:45.160
  • could he make all way to my dress?
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:47.180
  • We do have warfare, but our warfare is not for victory
  • 00:13:51.210 --> 00:13:56.070
  • it's from victory.
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:57.290
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:14:00.100
  • And our warfare is to occupy, not to win.
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:04.240
  • And this is good.
  • 00:14:07.110 --> 00:14:08.110
  • I'm going to mess you up a little bit, but it's good.
  • 00:14:09.250 --> 00:14:11.260
  • What do you mean occupy, analogy.
  • 00:14:13.070 --> 00:14:15.220
  • Moses saw a burning bush, he went toward it.
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:20.070
  • A voice came voice of God saying,
  • 00:14:20.080 --> 00:14:21.220
  • "Take your shoes off for the ground
  • 00:14:21.230 --> 00:14:23.050
  • "you're standing is holy ground."
  • 00:14:23.060 --> 00:14:24.280
  • He stood in front of a bush barefooted.
  • 00:14:24.290 --> 00:14:26.280
  • And God said, "I have given you a land
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:29.190
  • "flowing with milk and honey."
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:31.260
  • He didn't say, I'm going to,
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:33.020
  • he didn't say, you're going to win.
  • 00:14:33.030 --> 00:14:34.130
  • He said, I've already given it.
  • 00:14:34.140 --> 00:14:36.070
  • What took 40 years.
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.050
  • They ran around in the desert 40 years trying to occupy.
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:47.000
  • God said, "I've already given you the victory."
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:49.220
  • But it took 40 years to occupy the spoils of victory.
  • 00:14:51.030 --> 00:14:54.090
  • That is where we are as believers.
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:58.020
  • You have 66 books of promises.
  • 00:14:58.030 --> 00:15:01.110
  • And you are being resisted against these promises.
  • 00:15:03.060 --> 00:15:06.130
  • You do not have to beat the devil.
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:08.170
  • You just have to occupy every blessing
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:10.250
  • that God said is yours.
  • 00:15:10.260 --> 00:15:12.130
  • Somebody who wants to take this journey with me?
  • 00:15:12.140 --> 00:15:14.170
  • Put your hands together, and to shout amen.
  • 00:15:14.180 --> 00:15:16.240
  • We're going somewhere with this.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.060
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:22.020
  • Thank you Brandon, thank you so much.
  • 00:15:22.030 --> 00:15:24.000
  • Genesis 1:26 and 27.
  • 00:15:24.010 --> 00:15:28.000
  • Give me a few minutes of your time I won't hold you late,
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:31.290
  • but you probably won't get out early.
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:34.180
  • Genesis 1:26 and 27.
  • 00:15:36.150 --> 00:15:39.060
  • "Then God said," this is the creation narrative.
  • 00:15:39.070 --> 00:15:43.000
  • And in verse 26, we get to the climactic point of creation
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:47.070
  • where he created mankind.
  • 00:15:47.080 --> 00:15:50.060
  • "Then God said, let us make man in our image,
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:53.250

  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:16:45.040 --> 00:16:47.290
  • I just obliterated God is in control.
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:51.140
  • According to the Genesis 1 mandate, we are in control.
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:59.120
  • And if I can mess your theology up further,
  • 00:17:00.230 --> 00:17:03.060
  • if you would just allow me, if God was in control,
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:06.120
  • he would have had it all fixed
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:07.140
  • before breakfast this morning.
  • 00:17:07.150 --> 00:17:09.000
  • God did not create this mess, sin and man created this mess.

  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:17.170
  • When a king declares a thing, and your God is a king,
  • 00:17:17.180 --> 00:17:21.000
  • he cannot undo even his own decree.
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:23.170
  • And God declared, Genesis 1,
  • 00:17:24.180 --> 00:17:27.010
  • you can't go back any further left than that.
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:29.170
  • Man will have dominion in the earth.
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:33.010
  • God is a Spirit John 3 says,
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:36.190
  • "God is spirit and his worshipers
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:38.250
  • "must worship him in spirit."
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:40.150
  • God is a spirit
  • 00:17:40.160 --> 00:17:41.230
  • a spirit does not have dominion in the earth
  • 00:17:41.240 --> 00:17:44.070
  • man has dominion in the earth.
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:46.080
  • You can't have dominion without domain.
  • 00:17:47.100 --> 00:17:49.180
  • The earth I've marked off for men, people not male,
  • 00:17:51.020 --> 00:17:55.200
  • is man flesh suit.
  • 00:17:56.220 --> 00:17:58.080
  • You got to be wearing flesh.
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:00.280
  • God created the heavens and the earth.
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:03.240
  • The heavens is spiritual.
  • 00:18:03.250 --> 00:18:05.210
  • The Bible says that the heavens are eternal,
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:08.040
  • and that everything we can't see is eternal,
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:10.210
  • and everything we can see is temporary
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:13.040
  • and subject to change.
  • 00:18:13.050 --> 00:18:14.120
  • So I got good news, if it's aggravating you,
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:16.080
  • and you can see it,
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:17.160
  • it is temporary and it is subject to change.
  • 00:18:17.170 --> 00:18:19.120
  • And it ain't going to last forever.
  • 00:18:19.130 --> 00:18:20.270
  • Somebody shout this thing is about the change. Hallelujah.
  • 00:18:20.280 --> 00:18:23.160
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:24.230
  • But the Bible says there is a world
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.080
  • that my eye cannot perceive the image,
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:28.220
  • and it's more real than the chair
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:30.130
  • that is holding up your weight.
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:32.000
  • The Bible says, "Everything we can't see
  • 00:18:33.170 --> 00:18:35.080
  • "comes out of that world."
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:36.270
  • And so God is a spirit,
  • 00:18:38.220 --> 00:18:41.280
  • he created the heavens a spiritual place,
  • 00:18:41.290 --> 00:18:44.160
  • and when he said, "Let us make man."
  • 00:18:44.170 --> 00:18:47.010
  • Man is a physical expression of himself.
  • 00:18:47.020 --> 00:18:50.090
  • Earth is a physical expression of heaven.
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:54.290
  • Earth was never meant to operate apart from heaven.
  • 00:18:56.120 --> 00:18:59.250
  • It was meant to operate just like heaven.
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:03.160
  • That's why the first place Adam and Eve lived
  • 00:19:03.170 --> 00:19:06.020
  • was called Eden, which means perfection.
  • 00:19:06.030 --> 00:19:09.030
  • Earth was intended to operate by God's laws,
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:15.040
  • and God put something on earth that was just like him,
  • 00:19:15.050 --> 00:19:19.120
  • to govern the earth, the way that he governs the heavens.
  • 00:19:20.260 --> 00:19:25.070
  • And he said, "I'm going to tell you where blessing comes from,
  • 00:19:25.080 --> 00:19:29.070
  • "and I'm going to tell you where trouble comes from,
  • 00:19:29.080 --> 00:19:31.250
  • "and just to prove you have dominion,
  • 00:19:31.260 --> 00:19:33.290
  • "I will give you a choice.
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:35.180
  • "I will never make you robotic."
  • 00:19:35.190 --> 00:19:38.000
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:40.210
  • You'll always have a choice as to how you govern.
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:42.210
  • Are we doing all right so far?
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:47.070
  • So God, when he makes man, he doesn't make maleness,
  • 00:19:48.220 --> 00:19:53.030
  • he makes a kind,
  • 00:19:53.270 --> 00:19:55.290
  • he made a species if you will called man.
  • 00:19:58.040 --> 00:20:02.180
  • He said, "This man, the species called man,
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:06.190
  • "I'm going to put him in the earth to rule it,
  • 00:20:06.200 --> 00:20:09.290
  • "And he's going to be just like me.
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:13.020
  • "I'm making him out of myself.
  • 00:20:14.120 --> 00:20:16.130
  • "I'm going to form him a body out of the mud,
  • 00:20:16.140 --> 00:20:18.220
  • "but that's not who he really is, that's just mud.
  • 00:20:18.230 --> 00:20:21.090
  • "It's not until I breathe the breath of life in him,
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:24.250
  • "and my life goes out of me and goes into that mud man."
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:28.080
  • The word "Adam" means man of the mud or mud man,
  • 00:20:28.090 --> 00:20:31.100
  • and it was just mud until God breathed in it.
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:33.270
  • But when God breathed in it,
  • 00:20:33.280 --> 00:20:35.080
  • it became something that came straight from God.
  • 00:20:35.090 --> 00:20:38.020
  • So Adam bore God's image, Adam bored God's likeness,
  • 00:20:38.030 --> 00:20:41.150
  • you could look at Adam and see God's reflection
  • 00:20:41.160 --> 00:20:44.140
  • on the man named Adam.
  • 00:20:44.150 --> 00:20:46.020
  • Adam had the same abilities as God.
  • 00:20:47.100 --> 00:20:50.030
  • I'm going to push this thing a long way today.
  • 00:20:50.040 --> 00:20:52.060
  • God had dominion in the air and in the heavens,
  • 00:20:53.130 --> 00:20:55.270
  • Adam had dominion in the earth.
  • 00:20:55.280 --> 00:20:57.200
  • God subdued and multiplied in the heavens,
  • 00:20:57.210 --> 00:21:00.140
  • he told Adam to subdue and multiply the earth and fill it.
  • 00:21:00.150 --> 00:21:03.280
  • Come on somebody, the Bible says,
  • 00:21:03.290 --> 00:21:05.230
  • "And God said, let there be light
  • 00:21:05.240 --> 00:21:07.150
  • "and whatever he said it happened."
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:09.130
  • And the Bible says, "Whatever Adam called it,
  • 00:21:09.140 --> 00:21:11.230
  • "that's what it was."
  • 00:21:11.240 --> 00:21:12.260
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:21:12.270 --> 00:21:16.040
  • That's a bad Adam right there.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:17.260
  • So Adam was in the earth operating just like his God.
  • 00:21:19.100 --> 00:21:22.270
  • In other words, the earth was meant to respond
  • 00:21:22.280 --> 00:21:25.270
  • to Adams words, not his hands.
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:28.250
  • You don't hear anything about sweat, toil and labor
  • 00:21:31.230 --> 00:21:35.070
  • till after he sinned.
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:36.180
  • Because Adam was built to speak,
  • 00:21:38.240 --> 00:21:40.240
  • and the earth was built to respond to what he spoke.
  • 00:21:40.250 --> 00:21:44.020
  • Whatever Adam called it,
  • 00:21:44.030 --> 00:21:45.120
  • that's what it became that's powerful.
  • 00:21:45.130 --> 00:21:48.260
  • And I can go a little bit further are you ready for this?
  • 00:21:48.270 --> 00:21:51.240
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:21:51.250 --> 00:21:53.120
  • - Luke 3:23, this is one of the most boring passages
  • 00:21:53.130 --> 00:21:57.210
  • in the whole Bible.
  • 00:21:57.220 --> 00:21:58.260
  • The Bible is full of genealogies, why?
  • 00:22:00.040 --> 00:22:02.010
  • Because bloodlines are very important to God.
  • 00:22:02.020 --> 00:22:04.170
  • And so you get to these portions in the Bible,
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:07.240
  • there's several out more.
  • 00:22:07.250 --> 00:22:09.090
  • God just goes through the generation after generation
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:11.110
  • after generation of genealogies.
  • 00:22:11.120 --> 00:22:13.050
  • But this one is very important in Luke 3.
  • 00:22:13.060 --> 00:22:16.050
  • He begins with Jesus and goes back.
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:18.190
  • "Jesus, himself began his ministry about 30 years of age
  • 00:22:18.200 --> 00:22:22.100
  • being as he as was supposed, the son of Joseph,
  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:25.120
  • "who was the son of Heli.
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:27.190
  • Now let's go to verse 38.
  • 00:22:27.200 --> 00:22:29.200
  • He runs that genealogy all the way down to verse 38.
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:32.230
  • And he says, "The son of Enosh, the son of Seth,
  • 00:22:32.240 --> 00:22:35.220
  • "the son of Adam," what?
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:39.220
  • Whoa, whoa, whoa I thought God only had one son.
  • 00:22:44.210 --> 00:22:49.160
  • God had two sons.
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:54.050
  • God only ever had two sons,
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:01.270
  • you're in one or you're in the other.
  • 00:23:01.280 --> 00:23:03.230
  • If you're not saved, you're in the first Adam.
  • 00:23:05.290 --> 00:23:08.150
  • The Bible says, "He was a man of the flesh."
  • 00:23:09.220 --> 00:23:11.280
  • But the Bible says, "Jesus the second or the last Adam,
  • 00:23:13.120 --> 00:23:16.030
  • "was a man out of the Spirit."
  • 00:23:16.040 --> 00:23:17.160
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:23:17.170 --> 00:23:19.020
  • And when I get born again, I leave my fleshly father,
  • 00:23:19.030 --> 00:23:22.170
  • the first Adam, and I am born again
  • 00:23:22.180 --> 00:23:24.270
  • and my father my second Adam,
  • 00:23:24.280 --> 00:23:28.060
  • and everybody who is born again is born of Jesus,
  • 00:23:28.070 --> 00:23:32.020
  • and they're a part of the second or the last Adam.
  • 00:23:32.030 --> 00:23:34.210
  • God's only had two sons, you're in one
  • 00:23:34.220 --> 00:23:37.030
  • or you're in the other.
  • 00:23:37.040 --> 00:23:38.100
  • Ask your neighbor say, "Which one are you in?"
  • 00:23:38.110 --> 00:23:39.240
  • Which one are you, come on let's say which one are you in?
  • 00:23:39.250 --> 00:23:42.280
  • It's bad if they can't answer you.
  • 00:23:42.290 --> 00:23:44.230
  • You want to be in that second one.
  • 00:23:46.050 --> 00:23:48.120
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:48.130 --> 00:23:58.140
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:58.140 --> 00:24:08.160
  • - I Hope that you're enjoying this.
  • 00:24:19.030 --> 00:24:20.100
  • You know, this is a brand new topic.
  • 00:24:20.110 --> 00:24:21.170
  • I've never spoken on a lot of these topics
  • 00:24:21.180 --> 00:24:23.070
  • in the study of it, man just really blew me away
  • 00:24:23.080 --> 00:24:26.070
  • after I began to process it and get it settled
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:28.260
  • in my own mind.
  • 00:24:28.270 --> 00:24:30.030
  • I couldn't wait to turn around and tell
  • 00:24:30.040 --> 00:24:31.100
  • each and every one of you about it.
  • 00:24:31.110 --> 00:24:32.250
  • Let me just take a minute and thank all of our people
  • 00:24:32.260 --> 00:24:35.120
  • who are a covenant partners,
  • 00:24:35.130 --> 00:24:36.280
  • the people who give whether it's every once in a while,
  • 00:24:36.290 --> 00:24:38.280
  • whether it's one time whether it's consistently,
  • 00:24:38.290 --> 00:24:42.010
  • as a partner on a month.
  • 00:24:42.020 --> 00:24:43.050
  • I need to say thank you.
  • 00:24:43.060 --> 00:24:44.090
  • We haven't been showing you commercials,
  • 00:24:44.100 --> 00:24:46.100
  • we haven't been running ads.
  • 00:24:46.110 --> 00:24:47.200
  • We haven't been doing any commercials
  • 00:24:47.210 --> 00:24:49.050
  • while we are viewer, and we are listener-supported
  • 00:24:49.060 --> 00:24:52.070
  • and that is you, I'm grateful.
  • 00:24:52.080 --> 00:24:53.260
  • Since 1998 you have not only kept us on the air,
  • 00:24:53.270 --> 00:24:58.070
  • but you've allowed us to grow,
  • 00:24:58.080 --> 00:25:00.110
  • from little local programming to global programming,
  • 00:25:00.120 --> 00:25:04.150
  • and I'm grateful.
  • 00:25:04.160 --> 00:25:05.220
  • I want to invite more people into this family,
  • 00:25:05.230 --> 00:25:08.030
  • this family of givers.
  • 00:25:08.040 --> 00:25:09.160
  • If you are being blessed by a thing
  • 00:25:09.170 --> 00:25:11.150
  • would you consider turning around and blessing it back
  • 00:25:11.160 --> 00:25:14.080
  • and making sure it's strong,
  • 00:25:14.090 --> 00:25:16.030
  • making sure that the thing, the well that you draw from,
  • 00:25:16.040 --> 00:25:17.280
  • that you turn around and replenish that well.
  • 00:25:17.290 --> 00:25:20.240
  • Replenishment, reciprocity is key
  • 00:25:20.250 --> 00:25:23.100
  • that you reciprocate the blessing back to the thing,
  • 00:25:23.110 --> 00:25:25.250
  • to the people who are blessing you.
  • 00:25:25.260 --> 00:25:28.110
  • I would just ask you, if you would consider,
  • 00:25:28.120 --> 00:25:30.140
  • maybe you've never given before
  • 00:25:30.150 --> 00:25:31.260
  • and you'd like to be a one time giver,
  • 00:25:31.270 --> 00:25:33.120
  • or maybe you're being touched to pull on right now.
  • 00:25:33.130 --> 00:25:35.160
  • Maybe this message spoke to you.
  • 00:25:35.170 --> 00:25:37.180
  • Or maybe you like to say you know what,
  • 00:25:37.190 --> 00:25:38.260
  • "I consistently am a watcher,
  • 00:25:38.270 --> 00:25:40.100
  • "I want to consistently be a giver."
  • 00:25:40.110 --> 00:25:42.100
  • And maybe you could consistently give and start now.
  • 00:25:42.110 --> 00:25:45.040
  • Maybe your heart's being touched.
  • 00:25:45.050 --> 00:25:46.110
  • I just want you to obey God.
  • 00:25:46.120 --> 00:25:47.290
  • We have this very special gift that we'll give.
  • 00:25:48.000 --> 00:25:50.060
  • Just to say thank you.
  • 00:25:50.070 --> 00:25:52.040
  • It's not you buying anything, it's us being a giver
  • 00:25:52.050 --> 00:25:55.110
  • and saying we value the fact
  • 00:25:55.120 --> 00:25:57.130
  • that you sense any relationship with us we really do.
  • 00:25:57.140 --> 00:26:01.090
  • To those who've been giving I asked you to continue
  • 00:26:01.100 --> 00:26:03.140
  • your faithful support because we're growing,
  • 00:26:03.150 --> 00:26:05.290
  • things are happening, we just got everything in
  • 00:26:06.000 --> 00:26:08.140
  • and did our first working the bugs out of translating
  • 00:26:08.150 --> 00:26:12.030
  • this simultaneously in Chinese.
  • 00:26:12.040 --> 00:26:14.270
  • So now it'll be English if I can speak it, right,
  • 00:26:14.280 --> 00:26:17.250
  • and then it's translated into Spanish and also Chinese,
  • 00:26:17.260 --> 00:26:20.240
  • all at the same time.
  • 00:26:20.250 --> 00:26:23.030
  • You've helped make that possible.
  • 00:26:23.040 --> 00:26:25.020
  • I'm grateful we're doing a lot of great things
  • 00:26:25.030 --> 00:26:26.230
