  • 00:00:05.140 --> 00:00:06.260

  • 00:00:19.120 --> 00:00:21.170

  • you joined me for today's
  • 00:00:46.030 --> 00:00:47.070
  • program.
  • 00:00:47.070 --> 00:00:48.130
  • We're in a series called
  • 00:00:48.130 --> 00:00:49.170
  • "Stirred, Not Shaken," and we're
  • 00:00:49.170 --> 00:00:51.280
  • getting stirred up in the basics
  • 00:00:51.280 --> 00:00:53.160
  • of the Bible, the basics of our
  • 00:00:53.160 --> 00:00:55.110
  • faith so that we're not shaken.
  • 00:00:55.110 --> 00:00:57.220
  • We're not shaken by what's going
  • 00:00:57.220 --> 00:00:59.200
  • on in the world.
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:00.160
  • We're not shaken by a bad
  • 00:01:00.160 --> 00:01:01.140
  • doctor's report.
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:02.160
  • We're not shaken by
  • 00:01:02.160 --> 00:01:03.050
  • financial difficulties.
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:05.230
  • And, in fact, today, we're gonna
  • 00:01:05.230 --> 00:01:06.220
  • talk about being stirred up in
  • 00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:08.000
  • health and healing, and
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:10.100
  • specifically we're gonna look at
  • 00:01:10.100 --> 00:01:12.000
  • the twins of redemption.
  • 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:13.270
  • The two twins of redemption are
  • 00:01:13.270 --> 00:01:15.040
  • these: he forgives all of our
  • 00:01:15.040 --> 00:01:18.000
  • sins, Psalm 103 tells, and in
  • 00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:20.210
  • the very same breath he says and
  • 00:01:20.210 --> 00:01:23.200
  • heals all of our diseases.
  • 00:01:24.030 --> 00:01:27.030
  • Wow, that is a mouthful.
  • 00:01:27.030 --> 00:01:29.190
  • That is a lot of revelation and
  • 00:01:29.190 --> 00:01:31.080
  • truth, and God wants us to get
  • 00:01:31.080 --> 00:01:32.270
  • stirred up and understand it.
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:34.240
  • And so, that's what we're gonna
  • 00:01:34.240 --> 00:01:36.040
  • do.
  • 00:01:36.040 --> 00:01:36.200
  • We're gonna talk today about
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:37.110
  • health and healing and get
  • 00:01:37.110 --> 00:01:39.070
  • stirred up, so join me.
  • 00:01:39.070 --> 00:01:40.180
  • I'll take you inside the message
  • 00:01:40.180 --> 00:01:42.260
  • I shared with our congregation
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.160
  • at Valley Family Church in
  • 00:01:44.160 --> 00:01:45.210
  • Kalamazoo, Michigan, and be sure
  • 00:01:45.210 --> 00:01:47.260
  • to come see us when you're in
  • 00:01:47.260 --> 00:01:48.200
  • Kalamazoo.
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:49.180
  • All right, so let's go inside
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:51.070
  • - Beth: Today, we're gonna get
  • 00:01:53.160 --> 00:01:54.060
  • stirred up in health.
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:56.210
  • We're gonna talk about getting
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:57.210
  • stirred up in health, and two
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:02:00.250
  • things we're gonna look at is
  • 00:02:00.250 --> 00:02:01.280
  • this.
  • 00:02:01.280 --> 00:02:02.290
  • Number one, he forgives all my
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:04.120
  • sins and, number two, he heals
  • 00:02:04.120 --> 00:02:07.080
  • all my diseases.
  • 00:02:07.080 --> 00:02:08.220
  • And what does that mean?
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:10.000
  • How do we get stirred up in that
  • 00:02:10.000 --> 00:02:11.100
  • and what does that actually
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:12.200
  • mean?
  • 00:02:12.200 --> 00:02:13.070
  • So if you've got your Bibles, go
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:14.170
  • ahead and go over to Psalm 103.
  • 00:02:14.170 --> 00:02:16.260
  • We'll start here.
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:18.120
  • It says, "Bless the Lord, O my
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:19.200
  • soul; and all that is within me,
  • 00:02:19.200 --> 00:02:22.130
  • bless his holy name!
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:23.170
  • Bless the Lord, O my soul, and
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:26.080
  • forget not all his benefits: who
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:29.050
  • forgives all your iniquities,
  • 00:02:29.050 --> 00:02:30.290
  • who heals all your diseases, who
  • 00:02:30.290 --> 00:02:32.200
  • redeems your life from
  • 00:02:32.200 --> 00:02:33.260
  • destruction, who crowns you with
  • 00:02:33.260 --> 00:02:35.140
  • lovingkindness and tender
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:36.220
  • mercies, who satisfies your
  • 00:02:36.220 --> 00:02:38.150
  • mouth with good things, so that
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:40.020
  • your youth is renewed like the
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:42.120
  • eagle's."
  • 00:02:42.120 --> 00:02:43.050
  • He says, "Bless the Lord, O my
  • 00:02:43.050 --> 00:02:45.050
  • soul."
  • 00:02:45.050 --> 00:02:45.290
  • Notice he had to tell his soul
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:46.250
  • what to do.
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:48.100
  • His soul--and we know from, you
  • 00:02:48.100 --> 00:02:49.260
  • know, previous studies the soul
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:51.170
  • is a reference to our mind,
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:53.110
  • emotions, and will.
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:54.160
  • Our spirit man, our heart, our
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:02:57.030
  • inner man is our spirit man, but
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:59.010
  • he's telling his soul--his mind,
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:03:01.030
  • his emotions, and his will--he's
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:02.200
  • saying, "Hey, soul, you will
  • 00:03:02.200 --> 00:03:04.000
  • bless the Lord."
  • 00:03:04.000 --> 00:03:05.030
  • And the reason we, like he, have
  • 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:07.240
  • to do that is because, who
  • 00:03:07.240 --> 00:03:09.000
  • knows, there are many days you
  • 00:03:09.000 --> 00:03:10.020
  • don't feel like it.
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:11.050
  • There are many days in your mind
  • 00:03:11.050 --> 00:03:12.040
  • you don't feel like blessing the
  • 00:03:12.040 --> 00:03:14.120
  • Lord.
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.020
  • There are many days in your
  • 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:15.240
  • emotions you don't feel like
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:17.080
  • blessing the Lord.
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:18.080
  • Physically, you're tired, you're
  • 00:03:18.080 --> 00:03:19.280
  • fatigued.
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:20.210
  • You don't feel like blessing the
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:21.170
  • Lord, but he said, "Bless the
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:23.220
  • Lord, O my soul," and it's just
  • 00:03:23.260 --> 00:03:26.260
  • a good practice.
  • 00:03:26.260 --> 00:03:27.210
  • Who knows it's a good practice
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:28.210
  • to just choose to bless the
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:30.280
  • Lord, as we did earlier today?
  • 00:03:30.280 --> 00:03:32.280
  • Just blessing the Lord and
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:34.100
  • praising him for his goodness,
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:35.220
  • spirit, soul, and body.
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.100
  • Well, then he goes on to say why
  • 00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:38.240
  • we bless the Lord, and a big
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:41.040
  • piece of what we're not to
  • 00:03:41.040 --> 00:03:42.210
  • forget.
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:43.160
  • "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and
  • 00:03:43.160 --> 00:03:44.170
  • forget not all his benefits."
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:48.080
  • "All" is a big word.
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:51.030
  • "Benefits," plural.
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:53.120
  • "Forget not."
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:54.130
  • In other words, remember.
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:55.270
  • "Remember all," there's a lot of
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:58.020
  • 'em, "his benefits."
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:04:00.140
  • Okay, what are they?
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:01.110
  • Let's go back to the top of that
  • 00:04:01.110 --> 00:04:02.060
  • verse, verse 2, "Bless the Lord,
  • 00:04:02.060 --> 00:04:05.020
  • O my soul.
  • 00:04:05.020 --> 00:04:05.250
  • Forget not all of his benefits,"
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:07.070
  • okay?
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:08.030
  • "Who forgives all of your
  • 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:08.260
  • iniquities, and heals all of
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:10.180
  • your diseases."
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:11.140
  • Those two are in the same verse.
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.220
  • So how many of you here, you
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:15.050
  • know for sure, 100%, nobody
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:17.140
  • could take it from you, you know
  • 00:04:17.140 --> 00:04:18.260
  • for sure all of your sins are
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:20.120
  • forgiven?
  • 00:04:20.120 --> 00:04:21.230
  • You know for sure.
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:23.020
  • There's no doubt about it.
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:23.290
  • I couldn't talk you out of it.
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:24.250
  • I could not talk you out of the
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:25.290
  • fact that all of your sins have
  • 00:04:25.290 --> 00:04:27.090
  • been forgiven, right?
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.240
  • In the very same breath, okay,
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:30.190
  • in the very same breath, he
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:31.270
  • says, "Who forgives all of your
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:33.160
  • iniquities, and who heals all of
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:35.130
  • your diseases," in the very same
  • 00:04:35.130 --> 00:04:37.160
  • breath, in the very same verse.
  • 00:04:37.160 --> 00:04:39.110
  • So we're talking benefits now.
  • 00:04:40.070 --> 00:04:43.070
  • We're talking about getting
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.020
  • stirred up in the benefit of
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:45.230
  • healing.
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:46.200
  • What about that?
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:47.240
  • What about the benefit of
  • 00:04:47.240 --> 00:04:48.190
  • healing in this day and age?
  • 00:04:48.190 --> 00:04:50.030
  • What about that?
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:51.170
  • Is Jesus still in the healing
  • 00:04:51.170 --> 00:04:52.180
  • business?
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:53.160
  • Is this still a part of the
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:54.110
  • benefits package?
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:55.110
  • And if so, how does it work?
  • 00:04:55.110 --> 00:04:57.110
  • That's what we're talking about.
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:58.060
  • That's what we're getting
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:04:59.010
  • stirred up on.
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:04:59.280
  • So here's the thing.
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:00.260
  • This, for me--like in the last 6
  • 00:05:00.260 --> 00:05:03.090
  • or so months, you guys know,
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:05.130
  • many of you know that
  • 00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:07.020
  • Pastor Jeff and I faced some
  • 00:05:07.020 --> 00:05:08.040
  • physical battles in the
  • 00:05:08.040 --> 00:05:09.020
  • last 6 or 7 months.
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:10.240
  • And in the midst of that, of
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.050
  • course, we've gotten into, then,
  • 00:05:12.050 --> 00:05:13.190
  • just focused in on lots of
  • 00:05:13.190 --> 00:05:15.100
  • verses like this one in Psalm
  • 00:05:15.100 --> 00:05:16.270
  • 103 and others that just talk
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:18.050
  • about the benefits of healing,
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:19.260
  • the benefits of health, the
  • 00:05:19.260 --> 00:05:21.140

  • will satisfy him and show him my
  • 00:05:23.110 --> 00:05:25.260
  • salvation."
  • 00:05:25.260 --> 00:05:27.020
  • I mean, we are zoomed in on
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.070
  • those kinds of verses.
  • 00:05:28.070 --> 00:05:29.080
  • Who's found out when you go
  • 00:05:29.080 --> 00:05:30.050
  • through a trial or a
  • 00:05:30.050 --> 00:05:31.150
  • tribulation, you zoom in on
  • 00:05:31.150 --> 00:05:32.140
  • certain things that you need?
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:34.040
  • Well, in our case, that's been

  • true.
  • 00:05:35.000 --> 00:05:36.200
  • And in zooming in on these and
  • 00:05:36.200 --> 00:05:37.220
  • pondering these things and just
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:38.270
  • talking to the Lord, you know,
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:40.150
  • different light bulbs have gone
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:41.110

  • Things we've taught for years,

  • We've taught this for years.
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:45.180
  • We're anointed to teach it, we
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:46.280
  • have to live it by faith just
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:48.200
  • like all of you all.
  • 00:05:48.200 --> 00:05:51.000
  • Have to live it by faith.
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:52.100
  • We've taught it for years, and
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.200
  • we've lived it for years, as

  • well, but you live it at
  • 00:05:54.150 --> 00:05:55.060
  • different degrees, with
  • 00:05:55.060 --> 00:05:56.050
  • different levels of your own
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:57.090
  • experience.
  • 00:05:57.090 --> 00:05:58.070
  • I've written about it, but then
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:06:00.060
  • in real-time, in a real
  • 00:06:00.060 --> 00:06:01.290
  • tribulation in our lives and
  • 00:06:01.290 --> 00:06:03.200
  • adversity, we had to live it
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:04.230
  • out.
  • 00:06:04.230 --> 00:06:05.180
  • So we're digging back in, and
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:06.240
  • I'm back into Psalm 103, and I'm
  • 00:06:06.240 --> 00:06:08.080
  • talking to the Lord about this.
  • 00:06:08.080 --> 00:06:09.140
  • Like, "Okay, Lord, I believe
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:10.050
  • this.
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.070
  • If you forgive all of my sins
  • 00:06:11.070 --> 00:06:12.170
  • and I 100% believe that, and if
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:14.050
  • you said you heal all of my
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:16.090
  • diseases, you heal all of my
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:19.250
  • diseases."
  • 00:06:19.250 --> 00:06:21.060
  • I 100% believe that and, in
  • 00:06:21.080 --> 00:06:24.080
  • fact, I have to.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:26.110
  • I couldn't otherwise.
  • 00:06:26.110 --> 00:06:29.090
  • How could I not?
  • 00:06:29.090 --> 00:06:30.180
  • How could you not believe it?
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:32.030
  • If we believe that he forgives
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:33.080
  • all of our sins, how could we
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:35.240
  • not also believe he heals all of
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:38.030
  • our diseases?
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:39.200
  • But I know if you're like me,
  • 00:06:39.200 --> 00:06:40.220
  • sometimes the enemy can talk you
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:42.170
  • out of your belief in it.
  • 00:06:42.170 --> 00:06:44.110
  • But as I was pondering it with
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:47.040
  • the Lord, I said, "Well, you
  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:48.000
  • know what, Lord?
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:48.220
  • I'm healed.
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:50.200
  • I have to be.
  • 00:06:50.200 --> 00:06:51.100
  • I have to be healed, just as
  • 00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:53.030
  • much as I am forgiven, because
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:55.060
  • if one isn't true, the other is
  • 00:06:55.060 --> 00:06:56.230
  • not true."
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:58.080
  • They're both equally true.
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:06:59.260
  • It's not 90/10.
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.000
  • It's not 80/20, 60/40.
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.140
  • It's 100/100.
  • 00:07:02.140 --> 00:07:04.060
  • They're both 100% true, which
  • 00:07:04.060 --> 00:07:06.180
  • means I am healed, you are
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:08.110
  • healed, not going to be healed.
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:10.100
  • You are healed.
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:13.060
  • Go over to Luke chapter 5.
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:15.070
  • And while you're going over
  • 00:07:15.070 --> 00:07:15.240
  • there, let me talk to you just a
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:17.000
  • little bit about Jonah.
  • 00:07:17.000 --> 00:07:18.170
  • In the book of Jonah--remember
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:19.290
  • the story of Jonah?
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:20.260
  • God called Jonah to go preach
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.020
  • to the Ninevites,
  • 00:07:22.020 --> 00:07:23.080
  • to go preach to Nineveh.
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:24.180
  • And so, Jonah decided he didn't
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.020
  • wanna do that, so he ran from
  • 00:07:26.020 --> 00:07:27.200
  • the Lord, ran from the Lord's
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:29.080
  • calling, and he jumped on a
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:30.250
  • ship.
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:31.220
  • They get out to the seas, the
  • 00:07:31.220 --> 00:07:33.040
  • biggest storm of their life
  • 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:34.060
  • starts overtaking the boat, and
  • 00:07:34.060 --> 00:07:35.290
  • they finally realized, "The
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:36.280
  • reason we're experiencing this
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:38.030
  • storm is because there's a Jonah
  • 00:07:38.030 --> 00:07:40.230
  • on our boat."
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:41.230
  • And Jonah said, "What you need
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:42.240
  • to do to me is throw me
  • 00:07:42.240 --> 00:07:43.200
  • overboard," which is what they
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:45.200
  • did.
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:46.060
  • They threw Jonah overboard.
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:47.150
  • The seas became calm for them.
  • 00:07:47.150 --> 00:07:49.130
  • Meanwhile, for Jonah, a big
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:50.240
  • whale swallowed him up.
  • 00:07:50.240 --> 00:07:53.070
  • Now inside the whale, Jonah has
  • 00:07:53.070 --> 00:07:54.150
  • a come-to-Jesus meeting.
  • 00:07:54.150 --> 00:07:56.000
  • Who thinks that might do it?
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:07:59.170
  • In the--inside the belly of the
  • 00:07:59.170 --> 00:08:00.170
  • whale, he has a come-to-Jesus
  • 00:08:00.170 --> 00:08:01.230
  • meeting, and he says this.
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:03.040
  • He says in verse 8, chapter 2,
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:05.040
  • verse 8.
  • 00:08:05.040 --> 00:08:05.190
  • He says, "Those that observe
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:07.060
  • lying vanities forsake their own
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:11.060
  • mercy."
  • 00:08:11.060 --> 00:08:12.040
  • That word "mercy" is the word
  • 00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:13.130
  • "hesed," which is God's
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:14.200
  • loving-kindness, which we've
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:15.260
  • talked about in weeks gone by,
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:17.030
  • this unconditional, incredible
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:18.150
  • love of God towards us.
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:20.020
  • He said, "Those who observe
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:21.200
  • lying vanities," another version
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:23.040
  • says "idols," "forsake their own
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:26.050
  • mercy."
  • 00:08:26.050 --> 00:08:27.030
  • What is he saying?
  • 00:08:27.030 --> 00:08:28.060
  • This is a little bit of a rabbit
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:29.220
  • trail, but it ties into this.
  • 00:08:29.220 --> 00:08:31.010
  • He's saying anything--he's,
  • 00:08:31.010 --> 00:08:33.010
  • like, inside the belly of a
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:34.140
  • whale.
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:35.040
  • He's like, "Okay, this is
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:35.230
  • clearly not God's will.
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.120
  • This is clearly not God's
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:38.090
  • highest and best.
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:39.140
  • This is a lying vanity.
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:42.020
  • This is completely contrary to
  • 00:08:42.020 --> 00:08:43.190
  • God's Word.
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:45.000
  • If I observe this and just say,
  • 00:08:45.000 --> 00:08:47.160
  • 'Well, this is my lot in life,
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:48.260
  • oh well,'" then he's gonna be
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:49.280
  • blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:51.120
  • dead.
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:53.060
  • But he decided in that moment to
  • 00:08:53.060 --> 00:08:55.040
  • turn his heart towards the Lord.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:56.170
  • In fact, he had repented
  • 00:08:56.170 --> 00:08:57.070
  • previously.
  • 00:08:57.070 --> 00:08:58.040
  • Turned towards the Lord, and he
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:08:59.100
  • said, "If I don't observe the
  • 00:08:59.100 --> 00:09:01.100
  • lying vanity, like the fact that
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:03.020
  • I'm inside the belly of a whale,
  • 00:09:03.020 --> 00:09:05.030
  • I will not forsake, miss out on,
  • 00:09:05.040 --> 00:09:08.040
  • the Lord's mercy."
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:10.160
  • He just leaned into God's mercy,
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:12.200
  • God's loving-kindness.
  • 00:09:12.200 --> 00:09:14.060
  • Didn't let the symptoms of what
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:17.120
  • he was facing rob him of the
  • 00:09:17.120 --> 00:09:20.000
  • actual truth that he could
  • 00:09:20.000 --> 00:09:21.270
  • experience, which was to be
  • 00:09:21.270 --> 00:09:23.210
  • delivered from the fish and
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:24.250
  • fulfill God's call on his life.
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:26.180
  • How does that apply to you and
  • 00:09:26.180 --> 00:09:28.060
  • I?
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:28.260
  • If it's true that we are the
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:31.060
  • healed of God in Christ, but we
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:33.220
  • face symptoms, and sickness and
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:35.050
  • disease tries to come on us, and
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:36.070
  • all the stuff we all face
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:38.030
  • because we live in a fallen
  • 00:09:38.030 --> 00:09:39.040
  • world, then if we're spiritually
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:43.040
  • minded and say, "Okay, well,
  • 00:09:43.040 --> 00:09:44.170
  • that's true.
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:45.180
  • I'm facing these things, but I'm
  • 00:09:45.180 --> 00:09:46.270
  • not gonna observe the lying
  • 00:09:46.270 --> 00:09:48.070
  • vanities," so to speak, "the
  • 00:09:48.070 --> 00:09:49.160
  • symptoms, to the point that I
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:51.280
  • forsake your mercy.
  • 00:09:51.280 --> 00:09:53.260
  • I'm not gonna allow something
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:55.290
  • that's contrary to your Word to
  • 00:09:55.290 --> 00:09:58.050
  • dominate or to usurp what is
  • 00:09:58.050 --> 00:10:01.040
  • true according to your Word,
  • 00:10:01.040 --> 00:10:03.220
  • 'cause what's true according to

  • your Word is that you forgive
  • 00:10:04.220 --> 00:10:06.130
  • all my sins.
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:07.060
  • You heal all my diseases, so you
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:08.130
  • must have a pathway for me to be

  • delivered into healed, healthy,

  • and whole, and with long life

  • 00:11:19.200 --> 00:11:20.140
  • Luke 5, verse 17, "Now it
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:22.150
  • happened on a certain day, as he
  • 00:11:22.150 --> 00:11:23.240
  • was teaching," Jesus, "that
  • 00:11:23.240 --> 00:11:26.060
  • there were Pharisees and
  • 00:11:26.060 --> 00:11:26.290
  • teachers of the law sitting by,
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:27.270
  • who had come out of every town
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:28.240
  • of Galilee, Judea, and

  • present to heal them."
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:35.050
  • Jesus, by virtue of being there,
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:36.050
  • was present to heal them.
  • 00:11:36.050 --> 00:11:37.170
  • "Then behold, men brought on a
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:38.240
  • bed a man who was paralyzed,
  • 00:11:38.240 --> 00:11:40.250
  • whom they sought to bring in and
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:42.000
  • lay before him.
  • 00:11:42.000 --> 00:11:43.020
  • And when they could not find how
  • 00:11:43.020 --> 00:11:44.040
  • they might bring him in, because
  • 00:11:44.040 --> 00:11:45.080
  • of the crowd, they went up on
  • 00:11:45.080 --> 00:11:46.080
  • the housetop and let him down

  • Jesus."
  • 00:11:50.140 --> 00:11:51.090
  • Verse 20, "When he," Jesus, "saw
  • 00:11:51.090 --> 00:11:53.220
  • their faith, he said to them,
  • 00:11:53.220 --> 00:11:55.090
  • 'Man, your sins are
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:56.190
  • forgiven you.'
  • 00:11:56.190 --> 00:11:57.170
  • And the scribes and the
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:11:58.180
  • Pharisees began to reason,
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:11:59.290
  • saying, 'Who is this who speaks
  • 00:11:59.290 --> 00:12:01.130
  • blasphemies?
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:02.060
  • Who can forgive sins but God
  • 00:12:02.060 --> 00:12:03.050
  • alone?'
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:04.060
  • But when Jesus perceived
  • 00:12:04.060 --> 00:12:05.110
  • their thoughts, he answered and
  • 00:12:05.110 --> 00:12:06.160
  • said to them, 'Why are you
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:07.200
  • reasoning in your hearts?
  • 00:12:07.200 --> 00:12:09.080
  • Which is easier, to say," now
  • 00:12:09.080 --> 00:12:11.190
  • get this, "which is easier, to
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:14.000
  • say, "Your sins are forgiven
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:15.150
  • you," or to say, "Rise up and
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:16.250
  • walk"?
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:17.210
  • But that you may know that the
  • 00:12:17.210 --> 00:12:18.280
  • Son of Man has power on earth to
  • 00:12:18.280 --> 00:12:20.160
  • forgive sins'--He said to the
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:22.020
  • man who was paralyzed, 'I say to
  • 00:12:22.020 --> 00:12:23.190
  • you, arise, take up your bed,
  • 00:12:23.190 --> 00:12:25.050
  • and go to your house.'
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:26.270
  • Immediately he rose up before
  • 00:12:26.270 --> 00:12:27.250
  • them, took up what he had been
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:28.280
  • lying on, and departed to his
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.240
  • own house, glorifying God.
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:32.060
  • And they were all amazed, and
  • 00:12:32.060 --> 00:12:33.270
  • they glorified God and were
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:34.290
  • filled with fear, saying, 'We
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.060
  • have seen strange things
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:37.080
  • today!'"
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:37.260
  • So in this story, you
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:39.040
  • get this idea Jesus is in the
  • 00:12:39.040 --> 00:12:40.140
  • middle of doing all kinds of
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:41.180
  • healings.
  • 00:12:41.180 --> 00:12:42.090
  • The power of the Lord was
  • 00:12:42.090 --> 00:12:43.170
  • present to heal them, to heal
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:45.260
  • all of them, but it was only the
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:47.190
  • ones with faith that got healed.
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:49.140
  • Did you notice that?
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:50.000
  • When Jesus saw their faith, he
  • 00:12:50.000 --> 00:12:51.110
  • healed the man, so it was only
  • 00:12:51.110 --> 00:12:52.230
  • the ones that believed.
  • 00:12:52.230 --> 00:12:54.110
  • It was only the ones who had the
  • 00:12:54.110 --> 00:12:55.080
  • faith to believe that received
  • 00:12:55.080 --> 00:12:56.280
  • healing, but the power of the
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:58.120
  • Lord to heal was present for
  • 00:12:58.120 --> 00:13:01.010
  • them, all of them.
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:03.020
  • So then, Jesus says--this is
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:05.060
  • what's so interesting, because
  • 00:13:05.060 --> 00:13:06.290
  • when we see forgiveness of sins
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:09.110
  • and healing of diseases,
  • 00:13:09.110 --> 00:13:11.070
  • sometimes they're called the
  • 00:13:11.070 --> 00:13:12.070
  • "twins of redemption."
  • 00:13:12.070 --> 00:13:13.230
  • They go hand in hand.
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:14.270
  • Jesus says to them--he says--he
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:17.140
  • sees the sick man coming down
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:18.280
  • out of the ceiling, he says,
  • 00:13:18.280 --> 00:13:19.220
  • "Son, your sins are forgiven
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:22.120
  • you."
  • 00:13:22.120 --> 00:13:22.270
  • "Wait a minute.
  • 00:13:22.270 --> 00:13:23.150
  • My sins are forgiven me?
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:24.130
  • I'm here for healing.
  • 00:13:24.130 --> 00:13:26.040
  • I'm not here to have my sins
  • 00:13:26.040 --> 00:13:26.280
  • forgiven.
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:27.160
  • I mean, that's great, but I'm
  • 00:13:27.160 --> 00:13:28.090
  • here for healing."
  • 00:13:28.090 --> 00:13:29.200
  • And then they got indignant.
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.040
  • Those watching got indignant
  • 00:13:31.040 --> 00:13:31.290
  • about, "Who is this who says he
  • 00:13:31.290 --> 00:13:33.210
  • can forgive sins?"
  • 00:13:33.210 --> 00:13:34.170
  • And Jesus says, "Well, what's
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:35.140
  • easier to say?
  • 00:13:35.140 --> 00:13:36.210
  • Which one is easier to say,
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:38.120
  • 'Your sins are forgiven,' or,
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:39.070
  • 'Rise up, walk, and take your
  • 00:13:39.070 --> 00:13:40.260
  • bed.
  • 00:13:40.260 --> 00:13:41.170
  • You're healed'?
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:42.080
  • Which one's easier?
  • 00:13:42.080 --> 00:13:43.000
  • Because to me, they're the same.
  • 00:13:43.000 --> 00:13:45.230
  • To me, one's just as easy as the
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:47.170
  • other.
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:50.210
  • Which one's easier?
  • 00:13:50.210 --> 00:13:51.110
  • I mean, they're just as easy.
  • 00:13:51.110 --> 00:13:52.000
  • They're both just as easy for
  • 00:13:52.000 --> 00:13:53.030
  • me."
  • 00:13:53.030 --> 00:13:54.060
  • And, in fact, the funny thing
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:55.150
  • was the man came for healing,
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:56.220
  • and back in the day, in Jesus'
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:14:00.050
  • day, they actually had more
  • 00:14:00.050 --> 00:14:02.070
  • faith, if you will, to expect
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:04.020
  • him and to believe that God
  • 00:14:04.020 --> 00:14:05.020
  • could heal.
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:06.080
  • What they didn't believe is that
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:07.210
  • Jesus could forgive sins.
  • 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:10.160
  • "Who does this Jesus think he is
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:11.110
  • that can forgive sins?"
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:13.000
  • They believed in healing.
  • 00:14:13.000 --> 00:14:14.240
  • It's almost flipped today,
  • 00:14:14.240 --> 00:14:16.220
  • whereas we believe 100% we're
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:18.070
  • sure God forgives sins.
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:19.120
  • We're for sure Jesus is the
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:21.080
  • Savior of the world and has
  • 00:14:21.080 --> 00:14:22.250
  • forgiven our sins.
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:23.230
  • We sometimes struggle to believe
  • 00:14:23.230 --> 00:14:25.080
  • that he still heals.
  • 00:14:25.080 --> 00:14:27.210
  • Do you know it was the exact
  • 00:14:27.210 --> 00:14:28.080
  • opposite back in the day?
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:29.170
  • And Jesus just made it clear for
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:30.260
  • both parties.
  • 00:14:30.260 --> 00:14:31.290
  • He said, "Well, which one's
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:32.200
  • easier to say, 'Your sins are
  • 00:14:32.200 --> 00:14:35.060
  • forgiven,' or, 'Rise up and
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:36.070
  • walk'?
  • 00:14:36.070 --> 00:14:36.280
  • To me, they're just as easy."
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:37.220
  • Why?
  • 00:14:37.220 --> 00:14:39.080
  • Because he forgives all of our
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:40.090
  • sins, and he heals all of our
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:41.210
  • diseases.
  • 00:14:41.210 --> 00:14:42.170
  • Forget not all his benefits,
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:46.160
  • amen?
  • 00:14:46.160 --> 00:14:48.140
  • Okay, Isaiah 53.
  • 00:14:48.140 --> 00:14:50.020
  • How do we know for sure this is
  • 00:14:50.020 --> 00:14:51.100
  • true?
  • 00:14:51.100 --> 00:14:52.100
  • How do we know for sure this was
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:53.020
  • a done deal?
  • 00:14:53.020 --> 00:14:53.270
  • This happened on the cross.
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:55.160
  • This is part of our redemptive
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:56.170
  • package.
  • 00:14:56.170 --> 00:14:58.080
  • Isaiah 53 is the story, the
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:15:02.000
  • prophetic Scriptures about what
  • 00:15:02.000 --> 00:15:03.260
  • the Messiah would do.
  • 00:15:03.260 --> 00:15:05.280
  • Verse 3, "He is despised and
  • 00:15:05.280 --> 00:15:08.040
  • rejected by men, a man of
  • 00:15:08.040 --> 00:15:09.070
  • sorrows and acquainted with
  • 00:15:09.070 --> 00:15:10.170
  • grief.
  • 00:15:10.170 --> 00:15:11.080
  • And we hid, as it were, our
  • 00:15:11.080 --> 00:15:12.200
  • faces from him; he was despised,
  • 00:15:12.200 --> 00:15:14.290
  • and we did not esteem him."
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:16.040
  • Verse 4, "Surely he has borne
  • 00:15:16.040 --> 00:15:17.260
  • our griefs."
  • 00:15:17.260 --> 00:15:19.090
  • The Hebrew word there for
  • 00:15:19.090 --> 00:15:19.290
  • "griefs" also is often
  • 00:15:19.290 --> 00:15:21.040
  • translated "sicknesses and
  • 00:15:21.040 --> 00:15:22.070
  • disease."
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.090
  • "And carried our sorrows."
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:26.060
  • That Hebrew word for "sorrows"
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:27.140
  • is often translated "pains."
  • 00:15:27.140 --> 00:15:29.290
  • "Yet we esteemed him stricken,
  • 00:15:29.290 --> 00:15:32.040
  • smitten of God, and afflicted."
  • 00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:33.060
  • Now verse 5 is the verse.
  • 00:15:33.060 --> 00:15:34.240
  • Verse 5, "But he was wounded for
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:36.210
  • our transgressions, bruised for
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:39.040
  • our iniquities; the chastisement
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:40.240
  • for our peace was upon him, and
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:42.080
  • with his stripes we are healed."
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:44.290
  • In verse 5, talking about the
  • 00:15:44.290 --> 00:15:46.230
  • Messiah, the Savior, we see the
  • 00:15:46.230 --> 00:15:49.020
  • threefold redemption, if you
  • 00:15:49.020 --> 00:15:50.190
  • will, that he provided for man:
  • 00:15:50.190 --> 00:15:53.000
  • spirit, soul, and body.
  • 00:15:53.000 --> 00:15:54.140
  • Spiritually, we know, we all
  • 00:15:54.140 --> 00:15:56.260
  • know--very few of us in here
  • 00:15:56.260 --> 00:15:59.030
  • would argue with spiritually we
  • 00:15:59.030 --> 00:16:00.200
  • know that he was wounded for our
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:03.290
  • transgressions and bruised for
  • 00:16:03.290 --> 00:16:05.110
  • our iniquities.
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:06.090
  • He forgives all of our sins
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:08.240
  • 100%.
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:09.210
  • We are in agreement on that.
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:10.160
  • Spiritually, we know our sins
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:12.060
  • are forgiven, but there are more
  • 00:16:12.060 --> 00:16:13.200
  • benefits, and they're listed
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:14.240
  • right here.
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:15.160
  • Benefit number two: the
  • 00:16:15.160 --> 00:16:16.240
  • chastisement for our peace was
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:19.140
  • upon him.
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:20.270
  • Peace there is the Hebrew word
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:22.110
  • "shalom."
  • 00:16:22.110 --> 00:16:23.140
  • The word "shalom" is a really
  • 00:16:23.140 --> 00:16:26.050
  • rich, deep, dense word.
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:31.070
  • It doesn't just mean peace,
  • 00:16:31.070 --> 00:16:33.230
  • baby.
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:34.160
  • It doesn't just mean that.
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:36.020
  • It doesn't just mean "hope has
  • 00:16:36.020 --> 00:16:37.040
  • come for you."
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:38.290
  • It's when the Jewish people
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:40.090
  • would greet one another and say,
  • 00:16:40.090 --> 00:16:41.090
  • "Shalom," I mean, they were
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:42.270
  • saying, "May it be well with
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:44.240
  • you.
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:45.130
  • May you prosper.
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:46.120
  • May you be in health.
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:47.070
  • May everything go good with your
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:48.080
  • family."
  • 00:16:48.080 --> 00:16:49.000
  • Like, this is a big word.
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:49.260
  • "Shalom" is a big word, and the
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:53.250
  • chastisement, the punishment,
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:55.290
  • that was required because of
  • 00:16:55.290 --> 00:16:57.170
  • sin, so that you and I could be
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:17:00.090
  • redeemed, get the redemptive
  • 00:17:00.090 --> 00:17:02.150
  • benefit of shalom, of peace,
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:05.040
  • that would touch our soul, our
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:07.080
  • mind, our emotions, our will,
  • 00:17:07.080 --> 00:17:10.080
  • our livelihood, our vocation,
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:12.270
  • that would touch our lives.
  • 00:17:12.270 --> 00:17:14.270
  • The price that was paid, the
  • 00:17:14.270 --> 00:17:16.130
  • chastisement.
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:18.070
  • Jesus took the beating, the
  • 00:17:18.070 --> 00:17:20.200
  • punishment, the chastisement for
  • 00:17:20.260 --> 00:17:23.260
  • us to have shalom.
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:27.140
  • That's the soulish part of us to
  • 00:17:27.140 --> 00:17:30.090
  • benefit, is blessed.
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:33.180
  • We're actually gonna get into
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:34.060
  • that a little bit next week, is
  • 00:17:34.060 --> 00:17:36.280
  • to be blessed spirit, soul,
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:39.260
  • body.
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:40.240
  • Look at the last part of this
  • 00:17:40.240 --> 00:17:41.150
  • verse.
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:42.050
  • Verse 5, "And by his stripes we
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:44.170
  • are healed."
  • 00:17:44.170 --> 00:17:45.120
  • By his stripes we are healed.
  • 00:17:45.120 --> 00:17:48.080
  • What stripes?
  • 00:17:48.080 --> 00:17:49.240
  • When Jesus was beaten, when
  • 00:17:49.240 --> 00:17:51.000
  • Jesus was scourged, when they
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.050
  • put the crown of thorns on him,
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:53.100
  • when his back was ripped apart
  • 00:17:53.100 --> 00:17:54.230
  • by the beatings, by the whips so
  • 00:17:54.250 --> 00:17:57.250
  • that you and I could be healed.
  • 00:17:57.250 --> 00:17:59.060
  • Now sometimes people say, "Well,
  • 00:17:59.060 --> 00:18:00.060
  • that was just spiritual healing.
  • 00:18:00.060 --> 00:18:01.240
  • That wasn't physical healing.
  • 00:18:01.240 --> 00:18:03.030
  • All of this was just spiritual
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:03.280
  • healing."
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:05.000
  • Well, it was spiritual healing,
  • 00:18:05.000 --> 00:18:07.060
  • but it also included physical
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:08.100
  • healing, and we know that for
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:09.160
  • sure.
  • 00:18:09.160 --> 00:18:10.100
  • Let's jump over to the New
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:11.110
  • Testament.
  • 00:18:11.110 --> 00:18:12.070
  • We know that for sure by Matthew
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:13.180
  • chapter 8, when Jesus was
  • 00:18:13.180 --> 00:18:15.170
  • actually on the Earth.
  • 00:18:15.170 --> 00:18:17.050
  • Look at Matthew 8, verse 16.
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:20.020
  • You could read all of Matthew 8.
  • 00:18:20.020 --> 00:18:21.120
  • The whole chapter talks about
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:22.220
  • one healing after another that
  • 00:18:22.220 --> 00:18:24.090
  • Jesus was doing for people,
  • 00:18:24.090 --> 00:18:26.030
  • setting people free, healing
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:27.030
  • people.
  • 00:18:27.030 --> 00:18:27.260
  • Then you get to verse 16, "When
  • 00:18:27.260 --> 00:18:29.220
  • evening had come, they brought
  • 00:18:29.220 --> 00:18:31.170
  • to him many who were
  • 00:18:31.170 --> 00:18:32.230
  • demon-possessed.
  • 00:18:32.230 --> 00:18:34.100
  • And he cast out the spirits with
  • 00:18:34.100 --> 00:18:35.130
  • a word, and healed all who were
  • 00:18:35.240 --> 00:18:38.240
  • sick."
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:40.070
  • So what's Jesus doing?
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:41.150
  • Is he doing spiritual healing
  • 00:18:41.150 --> 00:18:42.170
  • here?
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:43.110
  • No, he's doing physical healing.
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.140
  • He's healing sick people.
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:46.230
  • This is physical healing Jesus
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:48.170
  • is doing.
  • 00:18:48.170 --> 00:18:50.030
  • Verse 17, "That it might be
  • 00:18:50.030 --> 00:18:52.220
  • fulfilled what was spoken by
  • 00:18:52.220 --> 00:18:55.060
  • Isaiah the prophet, saying: 'He
  • 00:18:55.060 --> 00:18:56.210
  • himself took our infirmities and
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:58.000
  • bore our sicknesses.'"
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:19:00.280
  • When Jesus healed the sick,
  • 00:19:00.280 --> 00:19:03.150
  • he was fulfilling Isaiah 53.
  • 00:19:03.150 --> 00:19:05.260
  • What are we talking about?
  • 00:19:05.260 --> 00:19:06.250
  • We're getting stirred up about
  • 00:19:06.250 --> 00:19:08.010
  • the redemptive truths that are
  • 00:19:08.010 --> 00:19:09.160
  • yours.
  • 00:19:09.160 --> 00:19:10.170
  • We're getting stirred up about
  • 00:19:10.170 --> 00:19:11.120
  • don't forget all of his
  • 00:19:11.120 --> 00:19:13.170
  • benefits, who forgives all of
  • 00:19:13.170 --> 00:19:15.260
  • your sins.
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:16.190
  • Yes, amen, praise God, major
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:19.150
  • benefit, and within that benefit
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:22.200
  • is another major benefit: who
  • 00:19:22.200 --> 00:19:24.250
  • heals all your diseases.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:27.190
  • By his stripes, you and I were
  • 00:19:27.190 --> 00:19:30.030
  • healed.
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:31.070
  • What's your condition before
  • 00:19:31.070 --> 00:19:32.080
  • God?
  • 00:19:32.080 --> 00:19:33.050
  • What's your condition?
  • 00:19:33.050 --> 00:19:33.260
  • You are the healed of the Lord.
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:35.050
  • "I'm going to be healed."
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:36.160
  • No, you are healed.
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:37.240
  • It's coming.
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:39.170
  • No, you were.
  • 00:19:39.170 --> 00:19:41.000
  • When were you healed?
  • 00:19:41.000 --> 00:19:43.060
  • When Jesus went to the cross.
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:45.060
  • It's a past-tense reality.
  • 00:19:45.060 --> 00:19:48.000
  • I am healed.
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:52.020
  • Now you say, "But what about
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:52.260
  • these lying vanities, then?
  • 00:19:52.260 --> 00:19:54.130
  • What about these symptoms?
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:55.110
  • What about these things I face?"
  • 00:19:55.110 --> 00:19:56.170
  • This is where we need God's
  • 00:19:56.170 --> 00:19:57.240
  • wisdom to walk on the pathway,
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:20:00.040
  • and thank God.
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:00.240
  • Thank God for doctors.
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:02.100
  • Thank God for discovery in
  • 00:20:02.100 --> 00:20:03.250
  • medicine, for innovation in
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:05.100
  • surgery.
  • 00:20:05.100 --> 00:20:06.000
  • Thank God.
  • 00:20:06.000 --> 00:20:06.190
  • I used to work for a surgeon, an
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:07.210
  • arthroscopic surgeon years ago,
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:09.140
  • Doctor Lanny Johnson,
  • 00:20:09.140 --> 00:20:10.140
  • well-reknown--renowned in
  • 00:20:10.140 --> 00:20:12.110
  • arthroscopic surgery, invented
  • 00:20:12.110 --> 00:20:13.250
  • in orthopedics, arthroscopic
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:15.220
  • surgery, both.
  • 00:20:15.220 --> 00:20:16.190
  • Invented many of the instruments
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:17.220
  • and the techniques and the
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:18.270
  • discovery.
  • 00:20:18.270 --> 00:20:19.240
  • Three hundred patents in his
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:21.000
  • name for arthroscopic surgery.
  • 00:20:21.000 --> 00:20:23.070
  • He was one of the pioneers of
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:24.120
  • knees and shoulders.
  • 00:20:24.120 --> 00:20:26.160
  • So I used to work for--and

  • Spirit-filled.

  • Born-again, Spirit-filled

  • doctor, who said, "The Holy

  • Spirit gave me the invention and

  • the discovery into all this."
  • 00:20:32.050 --> 00:20:34.060
  • I mean, he literally gave the
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:35.100
  • glory and the honor to the Lord
  • 00:20:35.100 --> 00:20:36.160
  • for the discovery in medicine,
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:38.070
  • so thank God.

  • pathways?"
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:25.060

  • things, "Lord, Holy Spirit, what
  • 00:21:43.280 --> 00:21:45.270
  • do I do?
  • 00:21:45.270 --> 00:21:46.260
  • What do you want me to do?"
  • 00:21:46.260 --> 00:21:48.170
  • Number one, wisdom.
  • 00:21:48.170 --> 00:21:50.080
  • First, you know, step in the
  • 00:21:50.080 --> 00:21:51.180
  • pathway is wisdom.
  • 00:21:51.180 --> 00:21:53.030
  • "You've designed our bodies.
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:55.190
  • We have strong immune systems.
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:56.250
  • You designed our bodies to
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:21:57.200
  • recover.
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:21:58.170
  • Lord, what does wisdom--what
  • 00:21:58.170 --> 00:21:59.190
  • does your wisdom tell me to do?
  • 00:21:59.190 --> 00:22:01.070
  • Do I need to rest?
  • 00:22:01.070 --> 00:22:02.040
  • Do I need to eat something
  • 00:22:02.040 --> 00:22:03.010
  • different, stop eating some
  • 00:22:03.010 --> 00:22:03.260
  • things, you know?
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:04.250
  • Is there something in the wisdom

  • world I need to be doing or not
  • 00:22:05.260 --> 00:22:07.140
  • doing?"
  • 00:22:07.140 --> 00:22:08.120
  • So you listen to his leadership
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:10.010
  • when it comes to wisdom.
  • 00:22:10.010 --> 00:22:11.050
  • You listen to the Holy Spirit's
  • 00:22:11.050 --> 00:22:12.090
  • leadership when it comes to the
  • 00:22:12.090 --> 00:22:13.140
  • next steps.
  • 00:22:13.140 --> 00:22:15.100
  • "Lord, do I need to go see my
  • 00:22:15.100 --> 00:22:16.100
  • doctor?
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:17.020
  • Do I need to consider surgery?
  • 00:22:17.020 --> 00:22:17.250
  • Do I need a good antibiotic?
  • 00:22:17.250 --> 00:22:20.000
  • Do I need to--what?
  • 00:22:20.000 --> 00:22:22.230
  • Holy Spirit, what?"
  • 00:22:22.230 --> 00:22:24.110
  • Aren't you glad--listen, y'all,
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:25.240
  • we have an advantage.
  • 00:22:25.240 --> 00:22:27.150
  • Being a Christian gives you the
  • 00:22:27.150 --> 00:22:28.160
  • advantage, amen?
  • 00:22:28.160 --> 00:22:31.030
  • You listen to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:32.130
  • All of these things require
  • 00:22:32.130 --> 00:22:33.140
  • faith.
  • 00:22:33.140 --> 00:22:35.000
  • The just live by faith.
  • 00:22:35.000 --> 00:22:36.290
  • You call things that be not as
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:40.080
  • though they were.
  • 00:22:40.080 --> 00:22:41.010
  • Now you employ your faith.
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:42.200
  • You say, "Lord, I'm gonna begin
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:44.040
  • to call my body what you call
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:46.170
  • it.
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:47.110
  • You call my body healed," so
  • 00:22:47.110 --> 00:22:48.250
  • then I begin to call my body
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:50.090
  • healed.
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:51.060
  • I call my body healed.
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:52.090
  • I call my chemicals normal.
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:55.140
  • I call my bones strong.
  • 00:22:55.140 --> 00:22:57.210
  • I call my liver normal.
  • 00:22:57.210 --> 00:22:59.280
  • I mean, you begin to call your
  • 00:22:59.280 --> 00:23:01.290
  • body healed.
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:03.150
  • According to what?
  • 00:23:03.150 --> 00:23:04.050
  • According to God's Word, while
  • 00:23:04.050 --> 00:23:05.230
  • at the same time listening to
  • 00:23:05.230 --> 00:23:07.130
  • wisdom and being led by the
  • 00:23:07.130 --> 00:23:08.150
  • Spirit into any other pathways
  • 00:23:08.150 --> 00:23:10.190
  • he has for you.
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:11.240
  • To get where?
  • 00:23:11.240 --> 00:23:12.150
  • To the finish line of healed,
  • 00:23:12.150 --> 00:23:14.030
  • healthy, whole, and with long
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:15.080
  • life he will satisfy you, amen?
  • 00:23:15.120 --> 00:23:18.120
  • What else?
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:21.040
  • You use your faith, like we just
  • 00:23:21.040 --> 00:23:22.080
  • said, and then God is so good.
  • 00:23:22.080 --> 00:23:24.120
  • He's given us so many pathways,
  • 00:23:24.120 --> 00:23:25.120
  • 'cause he loves you.
  • 00:23:25.120 --> 00:23:26.110
  • It's his loving-kindness.
  • 00:23:27.000 --> 00:23:30.000
  • It's his loving-kindness.
  • 00:23:30.000 --> 00:23:31.070
  • He's given us so many pathways
  • 00:23:31.070 --> 00:23:32.010
  • to be strong: spirit, soul, and
  • 00:23:32.010 --> 00:23:34.110
  • body.
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:35.040
  • Jesus paid the price for it so
  • 00:23:35.040 --> 00:23:36.110
  • that we could experience the
  • 00:23:36.110 --> 00:23:37.100
  • reality of it.
  • 00:23:37.100 --> 00:23:38.060
  • So other pathways he would give
  • 00:23:38.060 --> 00:23:39.200
  • us would be things like in
  • 00:23:39.200 --> 00:23:40.150
  • church.
  • 00:23:40.150 --> 00:23:41.030
  • The Bible says call--in fact,
  • 00:23:41.030 --> 00:23:42.120
  • look at it real quick.
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:43.030
  • James chapter 5.
  • 00:23:43.030 --> 00:23:44.020
  • This is what we're gonna do
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:45.270
  • as we wrap up today.
  • 00:23:45.270 --> 00:23:46.230
  • James chapter 5, verses 13
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:48.190
  • through 16, "Is anyone among you
  • 00:23:48.190 --> 00:23:50.040
  • suffering?
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:51.170
  • Let him pray.
  • 00:23:51.170 --> 00:23:53.030
  • Is anyone cheerful?
  • 00:23:53.030 --> 00:23:53.270
  • Let him sing songs--psalms.
  • 00:23:53.270 --> 00:23:55.120
  • Is anyone among you sick?
  • 00:23:55.120 --> 00:23:57.260
  • Let him call for the elders of
  • 00:23:57.260 --> 00:23:59.000
  • the church, and let them pray
  • 00:23:59.000 --> 00:24:00.100
  • over him, anointing him with oil
  • 00:24:00.100 --> 00:24:01.170
  • in the name of the Lord.
  • 00:24:01.170 --> 00:24:02.220
  • And the prayer of faith will
  • 00:24:02.220 --> 00:24:04.010
  • save the sick, and the Lord will
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:05.060
  • raise him up.
  • 00:24:05.060 --> 00:24:06.070
  • And if he's committed sins, he
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:07.110
  • will be forgiven."
  • 00:24:07.110 --> 00:24:08.200
  • Isn't that interesting?
  • 00:24:08.200 --> 00:24:09.150
  • He's got sins right next to
  • 00:24:09.150 --> 00:24:11.150
  • being healed, because the enemy
  • 00:24:11.150 --> 00:24:14.040
  • knows if he can try to keep you
  • 00:24:14.040 --> 00:24:15.110
  • in a place of condemnation,
  • 00:24:15.110 --> 00:24:16.250
  • well, you're not worthy to be
  • 00:24:16.250 --> 00:24:18.050
  • healed.
  • 00:24:18.050 --> 00:24:18.280
  • You've sinned.
  • 00:24:18.280 --> 00:24:20.040
  • You don't deserve to be healed.
  • 00:24:20.040 --> 00:24:21.040
  • The reason you're sick is
  • 00:24:21.040 --> 00:24:22.010
  • probably because you've sinned.
  • 00:24:22.010 --> 00:24:23.140
  • I mean, this is the enemy just
  • 00:24:23.140 --> 00:24:24.130
  • lying to people, but right in
  • 00:24:24.130 --> 00:24:25.260
  • the same passage there, the Lord
  • 00:24:25.260 --> 00:24:27.100
  • says, "I just wanna make sure
  • 00:24:27.100 --> 00:24:28.080
  • you all see the twins of
  • 00:24:28.080 --> 00:24:29.090
  • redemption.
  • 00:24:29.090 --> 00:24:30.130
  • There they are again."
  • 00:24:30.130 --> 00:24:31.100
  • "The prayer of faith will save
  • 00:24:31.100 --> 00:24:32.260
  • the sick.
  • 00:24:32.260 --> 00:24:33.240
  • And if he's committed sins,
  • 00:24:33.240 --> 00:24:35.050
  • he'll be forgiven."
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:36.110
  • Just as easy for me to do both.
  • 00:24:36.110 --> 00:24:37.270
  • Which is easier to say, "Your
  • 00:24:37.270 --> 00:24:39.170
  • sins be forgiven," or, "To be
  • 00:24:39.170 --> 00:24:41.000
  • healed"?
  • 00:24:41.000 --> 00:24:42.010
  • They're both just as easy.
  • 00:24:42.010 --> 00:24:43.190
  • "Confess your trespasses to one
  • 00:24:43.190 --> 00:24:44.150
  • another, pray for one another,
  • 00:24:44.150 --> 00:24:45.240
  • that you may be healed.
  • 00:24:45.240 --> 00:24:47.170
  • The effectual, fervent prayer of
  • 00:24:47.170 --> 00:24:48.180
  • a righteous man avails much."
  • 00:24:48.180 --> 00:24:50.260
  • What is our part?
  • 00:24:50.260 --> 00:24:51.240
  • Our part is just to believe.
  • 00:24:51.240 --> 00:24:53.080
  • Our part is just to receive from
  • 00:24:53.080 --> 00:24:54.170
  • God the finished work, amen?
  • 00:24:56.020 --> 00:24:59.020
  • I do sense the Lord's presence
  • 00:24:59.020 --> 00:24:59.260
  • here.
  • 00:24:59.260 --> 00:25:00.150
  • Do you all?
  • 00:25:00.150 --> 00:25:01.070
  • Let's pray.
  • 00:25:01.070 --> 00:25:02.100
  • Father, thank you so much for
  • 00:25:02.100 --> 00:25:05.050
  • your goodness.
  • 00:25:05.050 --> 00:25:05.260
  • Thank you so much that the power
  • 00:25:05.260 --> 00:25:07.040
  • of the Lord is present to heal
  • 00:25:07.040 --> 00:25:08.180
  • them all in the room and all of
  • 00:25:08.180 --> 00:25:11.140
  • them watching by TV.
  • 00:25:11.140 --> 00:25:13.000
  • Lord, we thank you for your
  • 00:25:13.000 --> 00:25:14.140
  • healing anointing.
  • 00:25:14.140 --> 00:25:15.140
  • And as we pray now and close out
  • 00:25:15.140 --> 00:25:17.080
  • in prayer, thank you, God.
  • 00:25:17.080 --> 00:25:18.020
  • In Jesus' name.

  • If you're watching by TV, I

  • your hand on your body right now
  • 00:25:22.180 --> 00:25:23.190
  • as I close in prayer.
  • 00:25:23.190 --> 00:25:25.100
  • Father, I just thank you that

  • they have their hands on their
