  • Creflo: If you have your Bibles,go with me once again to the
  • 00:01:38.978 --> 00:01:41.548
  • Book of St. John chapter 1,verse 14 and 17, then Romans
  • 00:01:41.581 --> 00:01:47.921
  • chapter 6:14, andthen 2 Timothy 2:15.
  • 00:01:47.954 --> 00:01:52.926
  • Your Bibles ought tohave dents there by now, amen?
  • 00:01:52.959 --> 00:01:56.663
  • Praise the Lord.
  • 00:01:56.696 --> 00:01:58.731
  • Let's read verse 14 outloud together again.
  • 00:01:58.765 --> 00:02:00.833
  • Ready, read.
  • 00:02:00.867 --> 00:02:03.436
  • "And the Word was made flesh anddwelt amongst us; and we beheld
  • 00:02:03.469 --> 00:02:06.472
  • his glory, the glory as of theonly begotten of the Father,
  • 00:02:06.506 --> 00:02:10.810
  • full of grace and truth."
  • 00:02:10.843 --> 00:02:14.180
  • Now, how many of you know theword made flesh, that's
  • 00:02:14.214 --> 00:02:16.316
  • Jesus, right?
  • 00:02:16.349 --> 00:02:18.218
  • And how many of you know thatthe only begotten of the Father,
  • 00:02:18.251 --> 00:02:20.186
  • that's Jesus, right?
  • 00:02:20.220 --> 00:02:22.021
  • So Jesus full of grace,which is the truth.
  • 00:02:22.055 --> 00:02:24.724
  • Full of grace,which is the truth.
  • 00:02:24.757 --> 00:02:27.393
  • Grace is the truththat makes men free.
  • 00:02:27.427 --> 00:02:30.964
  • Say that out loud.
  • 00:02:30.997 --> 00:02:32.665
  • "Grace is the truththat makes men free."
  • 00:02:32.699 --> 00:02:35.568
  • But also realize in verse14 that grace is not just a
  • 00:02:35.602 --> 00:02:39.339
  • curriculum or a subjectmatter; grace is a person.
  • 00:02:39.372 --> 00:02:44.043
  • His name is Jesus.
  • 00:02:44.077 --> 00:02:46.879
  • So Jesus full of grace,which is the truth.
  • 00:02:46.913 --> 00:02:49.849
  • Jesus full of grace,which is the truth.
  • 00:02:49.882 --> 00:02:52.619
  • Now, go to verse 17; and verse17 now presents before us a
  • 00:02:52.652 --> 00:02:58.558
  • contrast which I am believingmore and more every day, that as
  • 00:02:58.591 --> 00:03:03.263
  • we teach the gospel we need tocontinue to look at the
  • 00:03:03.296 --> 00:03:06.566
  • contrasts that are there.
  • 00:03:06.599 --> 00:03:09.602
  • Because it's one thing for youto share the new covenant and
  • 00:03:09.636 --> 00:03:12.272
  • what it says, but it won'tcommunicate well if people don't
  • 00:03:12.305 --> 00:03:15.942
  • understand where they have been.
  • 00:03:15.975 --> 00:03:19.112
  • And so the Bible says in verse17, "For the law was given by
  • 00:03:19.145 --> 00:03:22.715
  • Moses, but grace and truthcame by Jesus Christ."
  • 00:03:22.749 --> 00:03:28.021
  • Say this out loud: "The law byMoses, grace by Jesus Christ."
  • 00:03:28.054 --> 00:03:34.594
  • Say it this way: "Grace which isthe truth came by Jesus Christ."
  • 00:03:34.627 --> 00:03:40.133
  • Now, there's an obvious need tocompare and contrast because of
  • 00:03:40.166 --> 00:03:46.105
  • our lives.
  • 00:03:46.139 --> 00:03:47.974
  • I mean, you're living.
  • 00:03:48.007 --> 00:03:49.742
  • You woke up.
  • 00:03:49.776 --> 00:03:51.678
  • You have a life.
  • 00:03:51.711 --> 00:03:53.746
  • And the question has got to be,how are you living your life?
  • 00:03:53.780 --> 00:03:55.748
  • How are you living your life,and what are you living your
  • 00:03:55.782 --> 00:03:58.084
  • life by?
  • 00:03:58.117 --> 00:04:00.753
  • What standard are youliving your life by?
  • 00:04:00.787 --> 00:04:03.456
  • Are you living by the law thatcame by Moses, which means
  • 00:04:03.489 --> 00:04:05.692
  • you're going to have to live byperforming well in order for God
  • 00:04:05.725 --> 00:04:09.262
  • to do you well?
  • 00:04:09.295 --> 00:04:11.464
  • If you're living by the law thatcame by Moses, then that means
  • 00:04:11.497 --> 00:04:15.535
  • if you do, then God will; butif you don't, then God won't.
  • 00:04:15.568 --> 00:04:21.007
  • If you're living by the Law ofMoses, it's always going to be
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:24.777
  • about you overcomingcondemnation.
  • 00:04:24.811 --> 00:04:28.047
  • You're always havingto fight, "Am I enough?
  • 00:04:28.081 --> 00:04:30.950
  • Am I doing enough?"
  • 00:04:30.983 --> 00:04:33.252
  • The law by Moses is alwaysgoing to incite sin.
  • 00:04:33.286 --> 00:04:37.023
  • The law by Moses is always goingto be there to make you feel
  • 00:04:37.056 --> 00:04:41.260
  • shameful and guilty if youdidn't do it right, if you
  • 00:04:41.294 --> 00:04:44.964
  • didn't do it enough; and to myknowledge, that appears to be
  • 00:04:44.997 --> 00:04:48.534
  • what most of the church intoday's world is living by.
  • 00:04:48.568 --> 00:04:51.604
  • They're living by the Law ofMoses because you're coming to
  • 00:04:51.637 --> 00:04:54.374
  • church to find out the rules andthen go home and try to keep the
  • 00:04:54.407 --> 00:04:57.176
  • rules, only to come back thenext week to realize you can't
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:59.645
  • yet--you're not ableto keep them all.
  • 00:04:59.679 --> 00:05:03.549
  • So we're living by the law byMoses, and that's got to be
  • 00:05:03.583 --> 00:05:06.486
  • looked at.
  • 00:05:06.519 --> 00:05:09.722
  • Here's another thingI've been thinking about.
  • 00:05:09.756 --> 00:05:12.358
  • Somebody says, "Well, I'm aChristian and I'm coming to live
  • 00:05:12.392 --> 00:05:14.761
  • by--learn how tolive by the Bible."
  • 00:05:14.794 --> 00:05:18.064
  • Well, that's good, butChristianity is not a result of
  • 00:05:18.097 --> 00:05:22.168
  • the law by Moses.
  • 00:05:22.201 --> 00:05:24.103
  • There were no such things asChristians as a result of the
  • 00:05:24.137 --> 00:05:27.206
  • law by Moses.
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.442
  • So if you really want to be aChristian, Christianity did not
  • 00:05:29.475 --> 00:05:31.577
  • come about until the grace whichis the truth came by Jesus.
  • 00:05:31.611 --> 00:05:37.150
  • So if you say today, "I am aChristian," but you're living by
  • 00:05:37.183 --> 00:05:41.287
  • the wrong standards, you'reliving by the wrong doctrine or
  • 00:05:41.320 --> 00:05:47.260
  • the wrong teaching because youwent to a church just like I
  • 00:05:47.293 --> 00:05:50.863
  • went to a church and theytaught all they knew.
  • 00:05:50.897 --> 00:05:53.599
  • They did not understand howto rightly divide the Word of
  • 00:05:53.633 --> 00:05:56.536
  • truth, but you haveto look at this.
  • 00:05:56.569 --> 00:05:59.205
  • And your good old common sensetells you, you know, we got to
  • 00:05:59.238 --> 00:06:02.875
  • look at the difference betweenwhat came by Moses and what came
  • 00:06:02.909 --> 00:06:05.645
  • by Jesus, and whatis the difference?
  • 00:06:05.678 --> 00:06:09.315
  • If not, you'll continue tooperate by that same old
  • 00:06:09.348 --> 00:06:12.051
  • standard of, "I got to do thisin order for God to do that.
  • 00:06:12.084 --> 00:06:17.490
  • And if I don't do this, thenGod's going to be mad at me."
  • 00:06:17.523 --> 00:06:20.593
  • And you live this compulsiveChristianity disorder type of
  • 00:06:20.626 --> 00:06:24.464
  • life which you callChristianity, and it's not.
  • 00:06:24.497 --> 00:06:28.901
  • And man--you talking abouthaving to realize what God's
  • 00:06:28.935 --> 00:06:34.807
  • called you and your ministry todo to bring a corrective flow
  • 00:06:34.841 --> 00:06:43.316
  • into the whole body of Christwhere they have spent--it's more
  • 00:06:43.349 --> 00:06:47.019
  • than decades, centuries, andhaving to break it up and
  • 00:06:47.053 --> 00:06:51.090
  • knowing that when you break itup, Galatians says, "Even to the
  • 00:06:51.123 --> 00:06:54.760
  • day, there's a conflict betweenthose who are by the law and
  • 00:06:54.794 --> 00:06:58.831
  • those who are by thegrace of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:06:58.865 --> 00:07:02.201
  • Well, I tell you what, man.
  • 00:07:02.235 --> 00:07:04.337
  • I have decided that I'm goingto serve God rather than men.
  • 00:07:04.370 --> 00:07:09.242
  • Amen?
  • 00:07:09.275 --> 00:07:11.677
  • And if you want the truth, amen,keep coming and I'll give you
  • 00:07:11.711 --> 00:07:14.313
  • the truth.
  • 00:07:14.347 --> 00:07:16.249
  • But the stuff we've had over thelast 2, 3, 500, to maybe 1.000
  • 00:07:16.282 --> 00:07:18.718
  • years, right?
  • 00:07:18.751 --> 00:07:20.953
  • If Jesus had been dead 2.000years, we--dear God, the church
  • 00:07:20.987 --> 00:07:23.422
  • has been--this isa strong statement.
  • 00:07:23.456 --> 00:07:26.058
  • Church has been under deceptiona little under 2.000 years.
  • 00:07:26.092 --> 00:07:31.497
  • Been living by the wrongdocument for a little over
  • 00:07:31.531 --> 00:07:35.434
  • 2.000 years.
  • 00:07:35.468 --> 00:07:38.604
  • And now in 2.000, I don't knowwhen it was, up to now, he
  • 00:07:38.638 --> 00:07:44.243
  • finally got some folks in theearth that will be as bold as
  • 00:07:44.277 --> 00:07:48.714
  • the Apostle Paul and begin toteach it regardless of whatever
  • 00:07:48.748 --> 00:07:52.752
  • and whoever says whatthey need to say.
  • 00:07:52.785 --> 00:07:54.954
  • And, man, I'm gladI'm alive in this age.
  • 00:07:54.987 --> 00:07:57.924
  • Amen.
  • 00:07:57.957 --> 00:08:01.027
  • Man, I feel chillbuff right there.
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:03.162
  • Not that we live by chill buff,but I sure enjoy them sometimes.
  • 00:08:03.195 --> 00:08:05.364
  • Amen.
  • 00:08:05.398 --> 00:08:08.067
  • Now, let's go toa--what did I say?
  • 00:08:08.100 --> 00:08:10.336
  • Romans 6:14.
  • 00:08:10.369 --> 00:08:12.805
  • Now, why is it significantfor us to see this?
  • 00:08:12.838 --> 00:08:15.508
  • Because then wego to Romans 6:14.
  • 00:08:15.541 --> 00:08:17.977
  • And look what hesays in Romans 6:14.
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:20.613
  • He says, "For sin shall not havedominion over you, for you are
  • 00:08:20.646 --> 00:08:23.849
  • not under the law," wheresin had dominion over you.
  • 00:08:23.883 --> 00:08:28.554
  • Sin had dominion over you.
  • 00:08:28.588 --> 00:08:30.990
  • If you operate by the law byMoses--what is the law by Moses?
  • 00:08:31.023 --> 00:08:33.159
  • It is Ten Commandmentswritten on tablets.
  • 00:08:33.192 --> 00:08:36.829
  • Excuse me, Ten Commandmentswritten on stone and the rest of
  • 00:08:36.862 --> 00:08:39.732
  • them written on tablets,which is a total of about 613.
  • 00:08:39.765 --> 00:08:42.835
  • It's not like what was on stonecouldn't get the job done, but
  • 00:08:42.868 --> 00:08:48.641
  • they thought that they could doit on their own and they kept
  • 00:08:48.674 --> 00:08:51.310
  • adding to it and now wegot 613 commandments.
  • 00:08:51.344 --> 00:08:55.381
  • And he says that is the law, andunder the law it was designed so
  • 00:08:55.414 --> 00:08:59.118
  • that sin would havedominion over you.
  • 00:08:59.151 --> 00:09:03.222
  • Sin dominates you under thelaw, but here's the good news.
  • 00:09:03.255 --> 00:09:07.259
  • You're not under the law.
  • 00:09:07.293 --> 00:09:10.296
  • I said you're not under thelaw, but you're under what?
  • 00:09:10.329 --> 00:09:13.899
  • You're under the grace, whichis the truth that came by
  • 00:09:13.933 --> 00:09:18.037
  • Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:20.940
  • In fact, I'm going to saysomething kind of radical right
  • 00:09:20.973 --> 00:09:23.109
  • here right now.
  • 00:09:23.142 --> 00:09:25.878
  • If you say you preach the truthand what you preach is the law,
  • 00:09:25.911 --> 00:09:28.781
  • you are not preaching the truth.
  • 00:09:28.814 --> 00:09:34.086
  • If you say you preach the truthand you're preaching that which
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:36.989
  • came by Moses, you arenot preaching the truth.
  • 00:09:37.023 --> 00:09:42.028
  • The truth is whatcame by Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:42.061 --> 00:09:46.098
  • Grace which is the truthcame by Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:46.132 --> 00:09:50.336
  • Now, look at 2 Timothy chapter2:15, and then we'll get
  • 00:09:50.369 --> 00:09:53.272
  • started here.
  • 00:09:53.305 --> 00:09:55.875
  • 2 Timothy 2:15.
  • 00:09:55.908 --> 00:09:58.310
  • I am not going to stand beforeGod when all this is over
  • 00:09:58.344 --> 00:10:00.346
  • with--dear God."
  • 00:10:00.379 --> 00:10:02.682
  • And stand before God when allthis is over with and hear--and
  • 00:10:02.715 --> 00:10:05.217
  • the Lord say, "What did you do?"
  • 00:10:05.251 --> 00:10:07.286
  • "Well, oh, Lord, Ipreached the truth."
  • 00:10:07.319 --> 00:10:08.954
  • He said, "No, you didn't."
  • 00:10:08.988 --> 00:10:11.223
  • I don't want to be shocked.
  • 00:10:11.257 --> 00:10:13.459
  • Amen.
  • 00:10:13.492 --> 00:10:15.961
  • Boy, you're going to loveme when we get to heaven.
  • 00:10:15.995 --> 00:10:18.330
  • I rather you love me when we getto heaven than me preaching the
  • 00:10:18.364 --> 00:10:21.434
  • wrong stuff, and we get toheaven and you're like, "You're
  • 00:10:21.467 --> 00:10:23.969
  • supposed to be the preacher.
  • 00:10:24.003 --> 00:10:25.771
  • What a--"
  • 00:10:25.805 --> 00:10:27.807
  • And you're cussingme out in heaven.
  • 00:10:27.840 --> 00:10:30.743
  • Watch over your souls.
  • 00:10:30.776 --> 00:10:32.845
  • You know how important that isnow to choose the right people
  • 00:10:32.878 --> 00:10:35.014
  • to watch over your soul?
  • 00:10:35.047 --> 00:10:38.751
  • The question is, who'swatching over your soul?
  • 00:10:38.784 --> 00:10:44.023
  • The Bible says, 2 Timothy2:15--read it out loud with me.
  • 00:10:44.056 --> 00:10:47.326
  • "Study to show thyself approvedunto God, a workman that needeth
  • 00:10:47.359 --> 00:10:50.730
  • not to be ashamed, rightlydividing the word of truth," or
  • 00:10:50.763 --> 00:10:59.705
  • the word of grace, which is thetruth that came by Jesus Christ.
  • 00:10:59.739 --> 00:11:05.911
  • Wow.
  • 00:11:05.945 --> 00:11:08.581
  • Now, we started last weekon this contrast between
  • 00:11:08.614 --> 00:11:11.517
  • self-effort and rest,self-effort and rest.
  • 00:11:11.550 --> 00:11:16.689
  • Under the law by Moses, it wasall about self-effort, it was
  • 00:11:16.722 --> 00:11:20.860
  • all about what you can do; theself-effort that you would put
  • 00:11:20.893 --> 00:11:24.463
  • into this.
  • 00:11:24.497 --> 00:11:26.599
  • So let's look these threeScriptures real quick.
  • 00:11:26.632 --> 00:11:28.667
  • Romans chapter 4,verse 1 through 6.
  • 00:11:28.701 --> 00:11:30.903
  • Self-effort, or theBible may call it works.
  • 00:11:30.936 --> 00:11:33.205
  • And Christian people arealways concerned about works.
  • 00:11:33.239 --> 00:11:35.474
  • And so they're trying to do goodworks in order to get something
  • 00:11:35.508 --> 00:11:38.377
  • from God or deservesomething from God.
  • 00:11:38.410 --> 00:11:40.946
  • Well, the Bible calls thatin Hebrews dead works.
  • 00:11:40.980 --> 00:11:43.682
  • It's when you believe that youcan--you know, by doing good
  • 00:11:43.716 --> 00:11:48.687
  • works you're going to, you know,kind of manipulate God into
  • 00:11:48.721 --> 00:11:51.624
  • doing something for you.
  • 00:11:51.657 --> 00:11:54.026
  • He says that's just dead works.
  • 00:11:54.059 --> 00:11:55.895
  • You can't serve God that way.
  • 00:11:55.928 --> 00:11:58.164
  • So talks this illustration.
  • 00:11:58.197 --> 00:12:00.232
  • "What shall we say thenthat Abraham our father, as
  • 00:12:00.266 --> 00:12:02.168
  • pertaining theflesh, has found?"
  • 00:12:02.201 --> 00:12:04.370
  • Verse 2, "For if Abraham werejustified by works, he has
  • 00:12:04.403 --> 00:12:06.872
  • whereof the glory;but not before God."
  • 00:12:06.906 --> 00:12:10.276
  • Verse 3, "For whatsaith the Scripture?
  • 00:12:10.309 --> 00:12:13.045
  • Abraham believed God, andit was counted unto him
  • 00:12:13.078 --> 00:12:15.214
  • for righteousness."
  • 00:12:15.247 --> 00:12:17.483
  • So he says the only thingAbraham did in order for it to
  • 00:12:17.516 --> 00:12:19.718
  • be accounted on him forrighteousness is he
  • 00:12:19.752 --> 00:12:21.720
  • believed God.
  • 00:12:21.754 --> 00:12:23.823
  • Verse 4, "Now to him thatworketh is the reward not
  • 00:12:23.856 --> 00:12:26.192
  • reckoned of grace, but of debt."
  • 00:12:26.225 --> 00:12:28.127
  • In other words, he worked.
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:30.029
  • Somebody should bepaying him for his work.
  • 00:12:30.062 --> 00:12:32.097
  • Now, I'm going to kindof go through these.
  • 00:12:32.131 --> 00:12:34.867
  • I got in depth with them lastweek, but I got--want some more
  • 00:12:34.900 --> 00:12:37.002
  • I want to cover today.
  • 00:12:37.036 --> 00:12:39.205
  • He says, "But to him thatworketh not, but believeth on
  • 00:12:39.238 --> 00:12:41.507
  • him that justifieth the ungodly,his faith is counted
  • 00:12:41.540 --> 00:12:43.876
  • for righteousness."
  • 00:12:43.909 --> 00:12:46.345
  • And verse 6 says, "Even as Davidalso describeth the blessedness
  • 00:12:46.378 --> 00:12:48.681
  • of the man, unto whom Godimputeth," or charged,
  • 00:12:48.714 --> 00:12:52.251
  • "righteousness without hisworks," or performance or
  • 00:12:52.284 --> 00:12:55.521
  • his self-effort.
  • 00:12:55.554 --> 00:12:57.723
  • So you and I have been maderighteous not because of our
  • 00:12:57.756 --> 00:13:01.126
  • works, our performance, and ourself-efforts, not because you
  • 00:13:01.160 --> 00:13:04.029
  • just prayed 10 hours a day andyou were just awesome, but you
  • 00:13:04.063 --> 00:13:06.765
  • were declared righteous becauseyou believed in the works
  • 00:13:06.799 --> 00:13:11.036
  • of Jesus.
  • 00:13:11.070 --> 00:13:13.138
  • You believed in thefinished works of Jesus.
  • 00:13:13.172 --> 00:13:15.140
  • You believed that you'rerighteous because Jesus is
  • 00:13:15.174 --> 00:13:16.976
  • righteous, and you believedhim and now you've been
  • 00:13:17.009 --> 00:13:19.144
  • made righteous.
  • 00:13:19.178 --> 00:13:20.779
  • Not because of what you do,but you've been made righteous
  • 00:13:20.813 --> 00:13:22.982
  • because of what Jesus has done.
  • 00:13:23.015 --> 00:13:25.017
  • You put your faith and yourbelief in who Jesus is, and he
  • 00:13:25.050 --> 00:13:27.286
  • has been made untous righteousness.
  • 00:13:27.319 --> 00:13:29.788
  • So you are righteous becauseof your belief in Jesus.
  • 00:13:29.822 --> 00:13:32.458
  • Somebody shout, "Ibelieve in Jesus."
  • 00:13:32.491 --> 00:13:35.127
  • And heaven saysyou're righteous.
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:38.664
  • So you're righteous basedon your belief in Jesus.
  • 00:13:38.697 --> 00:13:43.002
  • See, long time ago I thought Iwas righteous because I did a
  • 00:13:43.035 --> 00:13:45.070
  • bunch of right things, but youwere righteous because of your
  • 00:13:45.104 --> 00:13:48.908
  • belief in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:48.941 --> 00:13:50.809
  • Now look at Galatianschapter 3, verse 9 and 10.
  • 00:13:50.843 --> 00:13:54.113
  • Galatians 3:9 and 10.
  • 00:13:54.146 --> 00:13:59.084
  • Now I'm going to pour stuffall out on you today now.
  • 00:13:59.118 --> 00:14:02.488
  • He said, "So then they whichbe of faith are blessed
  • 00:14:02.521 --> 00:14:05.224
  • with," what?
  • 00:14:05.257 --> 00:14:07.159
  • "Faithful Abraham."
  • 00:14:07.192 --> 00:14:09.261
  • Now say this out loud: "Underthe new covenant, my belief
  • 00:14:09.295 --> 00:14:12.331
  • is required.
  • 00:14:12.364 --> 00:14:15.567
  • I believe God.
  • 00:14:15.601 --> 00:14:18.137
  • I believe the finished works.
  • 00:14:18.170 --> 00:14:20.606
  • I believe what Jesus has done."
  • 00:14:20.639 --> 00:14:23.609
  • All right, now look at verse 10.
  • 00:14:23.642 --> 00:14:26.211
  • He says, "For as many as are ofthe works of the law are under
  • 00:14:26.245 --> 00:14:29.949
  • the curse."
  • 00:14:29.982 --> 00:14:32.518
  • The law by Moses wasgiven to incite sin.
  • 00:14:32.551 --> 00:14:37.089
  • The law by Moses was not--thelaw by Moses, which includes the
  • 00:14:37.122 --> 00:14:40.726
  • Ten Commandments, it was notgiven to transform you
  • 00:14:40.759 --> 00:14:44.196
  • into holiness.
  • 00:14:44.229 --> 00:14:46.365
  • It wasn't given tomake you better.
  • 00:14:46.398 --> 00:14:48.334
  • It was given to causeyou to increase in sin.
  • 00:14:48.367 --> 00:14:51.170
  • The law by Moses did not giveus the advantage over sin.
  • 00:14:51.203 --> 00:14:55.541
  • The law by Moses gave sin theadvantage over us, all right?
  • 00:14:55.574 --> 00:15:01.880
  • Look at verse 11.
  • 00:15:01.914 --> 00:15:05.084
  • Well--no, let's goto Galatians 2:16.
  • 00:15:05.117 --> 00:15:07.820
  • If I go to verse 11, then I'llbe stuck here 'cause I woke up
  • 00:15:07.853 --> 00:15:10.422
  • with something on my heart.
  • 00:15:10.456 --> 00:15:13.092
  • And I know if I readverse 11, that will be it.
  • 00:15:13.125 --> 00:15:16.628
  • I'll explode all over the placeand this little sermon will
  • 00:15:16.662 --> 00:15:18.630
  • be gone.
  • 00:15:18.664 --> 00:15:20.632
  • Galatians 2:16.Read it out loud.
  • 00:15:20.666 --> 00:15:22.668
  • "Knowing that a manis not justified by
  • 00:15:22.701 --> 00:15:25.637
  • the works of the law."
  • 00:15:25.671 --> 00:15:26.972
  • How do you argue with that?
  • 00:15:27.006 --> 00:15:28.307
  • Do you see that?Do you see that?
  • 00:15:28.340 --> 00:15:29.641
  • You're not justified or maderighteous by the works of the
  • 00:15:29.675 --> 00:15:32.211
  • law, but you're maderighteous by what?
  • 00:15:32.244 --> 00:15:35.714
  • "Faith of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:15:35.748 --> 00:15:38.650
  • So anytime you run into peoplethat tell you, "These are the
  • 00:15:38.684 --> 00:15:40.686
  • ten things you got to do tobe righteous," you got to
  • 00:15:40.719 --> 00:15:44.056
  • pay attention to this Scripture.
  • 00:15:44.089 --> 00:15:45.391
  • "Knowing that a man is not maderighteous or justified by the
  • 00:15:45.424 --> 00:15:47.860
  • works of the law, but by thefaith of Jesus Christ, even we
  • 00:15:47.893 --> 00:15:51.864
  • have believed in Jesus Christ,that we might be," what?
  • 00:15:51.897 --> 00:15:54.833
  • "Justified."How?
  • 00:15:54.867 --> 00:15:56.902
  • "By the faith ofChrist, and," what?
  • 00:15:56.935 --> 00:15:59.605
  • "And not by the works of thelaw, for by the works of the law
  • 00:15:59.638 --> 00:16:05.310
  • shall no flesh."
  • 00:16:05.344 --> 00:16:07.613
  • That's pretty clear, right?
  • 00:16:07.646 --> 00:16:09.948
  • That's pretty clear.
  • 00:16:09.982 --> 00:16:11.483
  • Now--so that's what itwas before the cross.
  • 00:16:11.517 --> 00:16:14.620
  • Even though we read out ofthe New Testament, that we're
  • 00:16:14.653 --> 00:16:17.656
  • now--we were talking aboutthis this morning in the back.
  • 00:16:17.689 --> 00:16:20.359
  • We are now going to have torightly divide the things in the
  • 00:16:20.392 --> 00:16:23.462
  • New Testament.
  • 00:16:23.495 --> 00:16:26.098
  • It's no longer dividing what'son the right hand of the Bible
  • 00:16:26.131 --> 00:16:28.400
  • and the left hand in the Bible;it is now dividing what's going
  • 00:16:28.434 --> 00:16:31.070
  • on in the New Testament, what'sgoing on in the four Gospels.
  • 00:16:31.103 --> 00:16:34.573
  • We got to rightly dividewhat part of that in the New
  • 00:16:34.606 --> 00:16:38.077
  • Testament--and when I sayNew Testament, I'm saying the
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:40.979
  • division of the Bible.
  • 00:16:41.013 --> 00:16:43.348
  • I really hesitate when I usethat 'cause now I know what the
  • 00:16:43.382 --> 00:16:45.484
  • New Testament is.
  • 00:16:45.517 --> 00:16:47.786
  • But we got to rightly dividewhat's on the right hand of the
  • 00:16:47.820 --> 00:16:50.122
  • Bible to see what part of thatbelongs to the Law of Moses and
  • 00:16:50.155 --> 00:16:53.092
  • what part of that belongs tothis new covenant of grace,
  • 00:16:53.125 --> 00:16:57.296
  • all right?
  • 00:16:57.329 --> 00:16:59.264
  • So you just can't say, "Well,it's in the New Testament."
  • 00:16:59.298 --> 00:17:01.433
  • There's a whole lot in theNew Testament that's old
  • 00:17:01.467 --> 00:17:03.936
  • covenant reference.
  • 00:17:03.969 --> 00:17:06.371
  • And if you can't--if youdon't know what's old covenant
  • 00:17:06.405 --> 00:17:09.675
  • reference and then you liveby just 'cause it's in the New
  • 00:17:09.708 --> 00:17:12.211
  • Testament, then you're going tofind yourself living by the Law
  • 00:17:12.244 --> 00:17:14.980
  • of Moses without reading theTen Commandments and not knowing
  • 00:17:15.013 --> 00:17:17.883
  • that you're under that sameinfluence, the influence of the
  • 00:17:17.916 --> 00:17:22.888
  • old covenant that is on theright hand of the Bible, and
  • 00:17:22.921 --> 00:17:27.926
  • that's where a lot of Christiansare kind of getting upset.
  • 00:17:27.960 --> 00:17:31.964
  • You think the New Testament ison the right hand of the Bible.
  • 00:17:31.997 --> 00:17:34.566
  • Let me tell you something.
  • 00:17:34.600 --> 00:17:36.235
  • This may be shocking, butMatthew, Mark, Luke, and John
  • 00:17:36.268 --> 00:17:38.237
  • should have and would fit awhole lot better in the old
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:42.508
  • covenant on the left side thanit would on the right side.
  • 00:17:42.541 --> 00:17:45.777
  • The only reason it appeared onthe right side is because God
  • 00:17:45.811 --> 00:17:48.313
  • wanted us to make sure we sawJesus keeping his promise of
  • 00:17:48.347 --> 00:17:51.817
  • Matthew 5:17 where he says, "Ididn't come to destroy the law,
  • 00:17:51.850 --> 00:17:55.787
  • but I came to fulfill the law,and not one jot or tittle of the
  • 00:17:55.821 --> 00:17:59.591
  • law will pass awaywithout me fulfilling it."
  • 00:17:59.625 --> 00:18:03.162
  • So Jesus in Matthew, Mark, Luke,and John for the most part is
  • 00:18:03.195 --> 00:18:06.798
  • fulfilling or carrying out everydetail of the law because no man
  • 00:18:06.832 --> 00:18:13.038
  • could do it but him.
  • 00:18:13.071 --> 00:18:17.242
  • So when you read Matthew, Mark,Luke, and John and they call
  • 00:18:17.276 --> 00:18:20.179
  • that the Gospels, it's a bigstory there, but he does--he has
  • 00:18:20.212 --> 00:18:24.316
  • two ministries.
  • 00:18:24.349 --> 00:18:26.785
  • There are two ministries, thetwo ministries of Jesus in
  • 00:18:26.818 --> 00:18:29.021
  • Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
  • 00:18:29.054 --> 00:18:31.256
  • The first ministry is to fulfillthe Law of Moses that no man
  • 00:18:31.290 --> 00:18:34.927
  • could be successfulin fulfilling.
  • 00:18:34.960 --> 00:18:37.529
  • He's the only one that couldkeep every jot and tittle of the
  • 00:18:37.563 --> 00:18:40.632
  • Law of Moses.
  • 00:18:40.666 --> 00:18:42.534
  • Thank you, Jesus.
  • 00:18:42.568 --> 00:18:44.803
  • Hallelujah, glory be to God.
  • 00:18:44.836 --> 00:18:48.106
  • But the second part was toprepare and lay the foundation
  • 00:18:48.140 --> 00:18:51.009
  • for the new covenant; the newcovenant of grace by
  • 00:18:51.043 --> 00:18:54.513
  • being prepared.
  • 00:18:54.546 --> 00:18:56.582
  • You see Jesus saying stuff like,"Up until now you had asked me
  • 00:18:56.615 --> 00:18:59.218
  • nothing, but then there's cominga time where you'll ask anything
  • 00:18:59.251 --> 00:19:01.653
  • in my name and itshall be done."
  • 00:19:01.687 --> 00:19:04.690
  • You have to rightly divide that.
  • 00:19:04.723 --> 00:19:07.392
  • You can no longer go aroundtalking about, "Well, if you
  • 00:19:07.426 --> 00:19:10.095
  • just read the red, everythingis going to be all right."
  • 00:19:10.128 --> 00:19:12.164
  • Honey, if you read the red, youmight end up shooting somebody.
  • 00:19:12.197 --> 00:19:14.466
  • You--all kinds ofstupid stuff will go on.
  • 00:19:14.499 --> 00:19:16.835
  • You quitting your ribsif you just read the red.
  • 00:19:16.868 --> 00:19:19.871
  • You be cutting your handsoff if you read the red.
  • 00:19:19.905 --> 00:19:21.540
  • You be cursing folks at theirchurch right in the middle of
  • 00:19:21.573 --> 00:19:23.342
  • praise service byreading the red.
  • 00:19:23.375 --> 00:19:26.912
  • You got to rightlydivide the word of truth.
  • 00:19:26.945 --> 00:19:31.316
  • Amen?
  • 00:19:31.350 --> 00:19:34.186
  • Everybody say, "Rightly divide."
  • 00:19:34.219 --> 00:19:36.488
  • So that means you canwrongly divide, right?
  • 00:19:36.521 --> 00:19:38.790
  • How many Christians do you thinkin this world have been under
  • 00:19:38.824 --> 00:19:41.760
  • wrongly-divided teaching by apreacher who's wrongly divided?
  • 00:19:41.793 --> 00:19:47.966
  • So we're talking about steppingaway from self-effort and
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:52.371
  • stepping into the rest and theconfidence of what Jesus has
  • 00:19:52.404 --> 00:19:57.776
  • already done; the rest, theconfidence, and the peace of
  • 00:19:57.809 --> 00:20:04.983
  • what Jesus has already done.
  • 00:20:05.017 --> 00:20:11.356
  • You know, do you really believewhat Jesus has done versus you
  • 00:20:11.390 --> 00:20:17.029
  • working real hard to try to dosomething to get him to do it?
  • 00:20:17.062 --> 00:20:20.799
  • I am telling you right now,listen to me, your healing was
  • 00:20:20.832 --> 00:20:24.303
  • finished 2.000 years ago.
  • 00:20:24.336 --> 00:20:27.005
  • So if you get sick today,healing's in the
  • 00:20:27.039 --> 00:20:30.075
  • medicine cabinet.
  • 00:20:30.108 --> 00:20:32.511
  • Done.
  • 00:20:32.544 --> 00:20:35.681
  • Okay?
  • 00:20:35.714 --> 00:20:38.050
  • Your deliverance has alreadybeen done and finished 2.000
  • 00:20:38.083 --> 00:20:41.053
  • years ago.
  • 00:20:41.086 --> 00:20:43.855
  • Your deliverance isalready done, okay?
  • 00:20:43.889 --> 00:20:47.059
  • But what's happening?
  • 00:20:47.092 --> 00:20:49.695
  • It's like today people are stilltrying to do something to get
  • 00:20:49.728 --> 00:20:52.197
  • what's already doneinstead of just taking it.
  • 00:20:52.230 --> 00:20:56.234
  • Are you listening to me?
  • 00:20:56.268 --> 00:20:58.537
  • It's already a finished work.
  • 00:20:58.570 --> 00:21:01.306
  • When Jesus on the cross,he said, "It is finished."
  • 00:21:01.340 --> 00:21:04.910
  • And you know whatthe church is doing?
  • 00:21:04.943 --> 00:21:06.878
  • "I don't believe it.
  • 00:21:06.912 --> 00:21:09.147
  • I don't believe it.
  • 00:21:09.181 --> 00:21:11.350
  • I got to add to that.
  • 00:21:11.383 --> 00:21:13.385
  • He said it's finished.
  • 00:21:13.418 --> 00:21:15.587
  • I got to add to that."
  • 00:21:15.620 --> 00:21:17.723
  • And you keep trying to dostuff that's already been done.
  • 00:21:17.756 --> 00:21:20.659
  • The awesomeness of living underthis new covenant is living by
  • 00:21:20.692 --> 00:21:24.029
  • faith in what you--whathe said is finished.
  • 00:21:24.062 --> 00:21:29.468
  • So when something occurs inmy life, I just go back to the
  • 00:21:29.501 --> 00:21:32.637
  • finished works of Jesus Christand I just believe that it's a
  • 00:21:32.671 --> 00:21:36.475
  • done deal, thatit's already done.
  • 00:21:36.508 --> 00:21:40.979
  • The privilege and the honor ofliving under the covenant of
  • 00:21:41.012 --> 00:21:44.983
  • grace is that we're no longersweating or depending on our
  • 00:21:45.016 --> 00:21:50.222
  • self-effort to tryto get it done.
  • 00:21:50.255 --> 00:21:55.260
  • Jesus got it done.
  • 00:21:55.293 --> 00:21:58.330
  • We've got to now believe it,receive it, and say thank you.
  • 00:21:58.363 --> 00:22:05.203
  • announcer: Did you know worryis a wrong form of meditation?
  • 00:22:09.408 --> 00:22:12.778
  • We all go through things inour life that bring about
  • 00:22:12.811 --> 00:22:15.347
  • uncertainty and doubt.
  • 00:22:15.380 --> 00:22:17.549
  • Creflo: Some of y'all get upwith the same worry that you
  • 00:22:17.582 --> 00:22:19.751
  • went to sleep on, and you wakeup and you continue in it.
  • 00:22:19.785 --> 00:22:22.654
  • And you got to let it go.

  • female: I often think aboutmoments where challenges have
  • 00:22:25.590 --> 00:22:28.727
  • been at the forefront and I'vebeen tackling these challenges
  • 00:22:28.760 --> 00:22:32.431
