  • to understand why peopleoperate the way they operate.
  • 00:00:27.674 --> 00:00:31.644
  • It's because they don't dealwith the guilt in their life,
  • 00:00:31.678 --> 00:00:34.280

  • Creflo: The Bible is sayingeveryone has sinned
  • 00:01:46.953 --> 00:01:48.922
  • and come short ofthe glory of God.
  • 00:01:48.955 --> 00:01:51.491
  • That's why the whole worldstands guilty before God,
  • 00:01:52.625 --> 00:01:56.829
  • because everyone has sinned andcome short of the glory of God.
  • 00:01:56.863 --> 00:02:00.833
  • That's why the whole worldstands guilty before God,
  • 00:02:00.867 --> 00:02:05.004
  • and that's even more why it'simportant to hear this message
  • 00:02:05.605 --> 00:02:08.474
  • today, because there isa way to deal with this.
  • 00:02:08.508 --> 00:02:12.912
  • Before we getinto those Scriptures,
  • 00:02:13.846 --> 00:02:15.448
  • let's look at someexamples in the Bible
  • 00:02:15.481 --> 00:02:17.650
  • of people experiencingfeelings of guilt.
  • 00:02:17.684 --> 00:02:19.986
  • Once again, very quickly,number one: Adam and Eve.
  • 00:02:20.019 --> 00:02:23.923
  • Adam and Eve.
  • 00:02:24.591 --> 00:02:25.925
  • They hid themselves in thegarden because they felt
  • 00:02:25.959 --> 00:02:28.294
  • the guilt of their sins.
  • 00:02:28.328 --> 00:02:29.996
  • You remember that?
  • 00:02:30.663 --> 00:02:31.998
  • Genesis chapter 3,verse 7 through 13.
  • 00:02:32.031 --> 00:02:33.766
  • Because of what theydid in the garden,
  • 00:02:34.400 --> 00:02:36.669
  • they hid themselvesbecause they felt guilty.
  • 00:02:36.703 --> 00:02:40.807
  • They felt theguilt of their sin.
  • 00:02:40.840 --> 00:02:42.976
  • Sin caused them tohide themselves.
  • 00:02:43.009 --> 00:02:45.745
  • Guilt was themotivation behind it.
  • 00:02:45.778 --> 00:02:48.014
  • The second example, King David.
  • 00:02:49.849 --> 00:02:52.151
  • King David.
  • 00:02:52.185 --> 00:02:53.586
  • You know the painof guilt David felt.
  • 00:02:53.620 --> 00:02:56.022
  • In fact, let me read it to you.
  • 00:02:56.055 --> 00:02:57.390
  • Psalms 51, verses 1 through 3.
  • 00:02:57.423 --> 00:02:59.492
  • You see the pain of theguilt that David felt when,
  • 00:02:59.525 --> 00:03:03.630
  • you know, when he had--when hefirst of all committed adultery
  • 00:03:03.663 --> 00:03:06.499
  • with another man's wife,he had that--
  • 00:03:06.532 --> 00:03:08.901
  • her husband killed inthe middle of a battle.
  • 00:03:08.935 --> 00:03:11.738
  • And verse 1 he says,"Have mercy upon me, O God."
  • 00:03:12.505 --> 00:03:16.109
  • Boy, David, knew some stuff.
  • 00:03:16.476 --> 00:03:17.844
  • "Have mercy upon me, O God,according to thy lovingkindness:
  • 00:03:17.877 --> 00:03:21.047
  • according unto themultitude of thy tender
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:23.216
  • mercies blot outmy transgressions."
  • 00:03:23.249 --> 00:03:26.552
  • Verse 2, "Wash methoroughly from my iniquity,
  • 00:03:26.586 --> 00:03:30.223
  • cleanse me from my sin."
  • 00:03:30.256 --> 00:03:32.458
  • Verse 3, "For I acknowledgemy transgression:
  • 00:03:32.492 --> 00:03:36.296
  • and my sin is ever before me."
  • 00:03:36.329 --> 00:03:39.832
  • You see that David knew thepain of guilt even in his life.
  • 00:03:40.466 --> 00:03:44.304
  • Here is the third illustrationand example:
  • 00:03:44.337 --> 00:03:46.606
  • Judas committed suicidebecause of guilt.
  • 00:03:46.639 --> 00:03:48.608
  • Matthew chapter 27, verse 3through 5, if you'll go there.
  • 00:03:49.309 --> 00:03:52.679
  • Matthew 27:3 through 5.
  • 00:03:52.712 --> 00:03:54.714
  • Judas committedsuicide because of guilt,
  • 00:03:55.415 --> 00:03:59.218
  • and, you know, we know peopletoday that they commit suicide
  • 00:03:59.252 --> 00:04:03.656
  • because they don't knowhow to deal with guilt.
  • 00:04:03.690 --> 00:04:05.358
  • That's why I'mtalking about it today.
  • 00:04:05.391 --> 00:04:06.693
  • I want you to knowhow to deal with it.
  • 00:04:06.726 --> 00:04:08.127
  • Verse 3 he says, "ThenJudas, which had betrayed him,
  • 00:04:08.494 --> 00:04:13.900
  • when he saw thathe was condemned,
  • 00:04:14.233 --> 00:04:17.437
  • repented himself, brought againthe thirty pieces of silver
  • 00:04:17.637 --> 00:04:21.374
  • to the chief priestsand elders."
  • 00:04:21.407 --> 00:04:23.509
  • Verse 4, "Saying, Ihave sinned in that
  • 00:04:23.543 --> 00:04:27.213
  • I have betrayed theinnocent blood."
  • 00:04:27.246 --> 00:04:29.582
  • "I have sinned in that I havebetrayed the innocent blood."
  • 00:04:30.016 --> 00:04:34.554
  • Wow!
  • 00:04:34.887 --> 00:04:36.222
  • That's a sermon I'mmapreach one day.
  • 00:04:36.255 --> 00:04:37.590
  • "And they said,What is that to us?
  • 00:04:37.623 --> 00:04:39.759
  • See thou to that."
  • 00:04:40.326 --> 00:04:41.928
  • Verse 5, "And he cast down thepieces of silver in the temple,
  • 00:04:42.261 --> 00:04:46.733
  • departed, and went,and he hanged himself."
  • 00:04:46.766 --> 00:04:49.535
  • Guilt can be--when you don'tknow how to deal with guilt,
  • 00:04:50.203 --> 00:04:53.106
  • when you don't understand howto deal with it and how it deals
  • 00:04:53.139 --> 00:04:57.143
  • with you, oh my goodness.
  • 00:04:57.176 --> 00:04:59.779
  • God forbid, but people havecommitted suicide because
  • 00:05:00.680 --> 00:05:03.716
  • of a lack of understandingin that area.
  • 00:05:03.750 --> 00:05:05.618
  • And then, final illustrationis the Jews
  • 00:05:05.651 --> 00:05:07.887
  • on the day of Pentecost.
  • 00:05:07.920 --> 00:05:09.255
  • Look at Acts chapter2, verse 36 and 37.
  • 00:05:09.288 --> 00:05:11.657
  • The Jews on the day of Pentecosthearing about Jesus
  • 00:05:12.358 --> 00:05:16.195
  • and remembering whathappened on that cross.
  • 00:05:16.229 --> 00:05:18.498
  • He said, "Therefore let all thehouse of Israel know assuredly,
  • 00:05:18.831 --> 00:05:22.335
  • that God hath madethat same Jesus,
  • 00:05:22.368 --> 00:05:24.771
  • whom you have crucified--"
  • 00:05:24.804 --> 00:05:26.639
  • He's made the one--the guy who you crucified,
  • 00:05:26.672 --> 00:05:29.108
  • God made him the Lordand Christ.
  • 00:05:29.142 --> 00:05:32.078
  • And look at verse 37.
  • 00:05:32.111 --> 00:05:33.413
  • "Now when they had heardthis," when they heard this,
  • 00:05:33.446 --> 00:05:36.416
  • "they were prickedin their hearts,
  • 00:05:36.449 --> 00:05:38.551
  • and said unto Peter andto the rest of the apostle,
  • 00:05:38.951 --> 00:05:42.288
  • Men and brethren,what shall we do?"
  • 00:05:42.321 --> 00:05:44.557
  • Their heart waspricked with guilt.
  • 00:05:44.757 --> 00:05:46.793
  • The same one that wascrucified on the cross,
  • 00:05:47.126 --> 00:05:49.796
  • God says--and he made surethat this--that they knew
  • 00:05:50.196 --> 00:05:52.832
  • that he was both Lordand Christ and King
  • 00:05:52.865 --> 00:05:57.036
  • and all of thesewonderful things.
  • 00:05:57.069 --> 00:05:58.404
  • Now, in light of it you--
  • 00:05:58.438 --> 00:06:00.940
  • I hope that you havethe reality of guilt,
  • 00:06:00.973 --> 00:06:03.543
  • that guilt is something thatthe whole world deals with.
  • 00:06:03.576 --> 00:06:06.345
  • Guilt is something thatpeople in the Bible dealt with.
  • 00:06:06.379 --> 00:06:09.782
  • It's just not this littleprivate issue
  • 00:06:09.816 --> 00:06:12.251
  • that a few people have,
  • 00:06:12.285 --> 00:06:14.153
  • that at any given time,if you're not cautious
  • 00:06:14.854 --> 00:06:18.357
  • and if you're not educated,
  • 00:06:18.391 --> 00:06:20.026
  • when that guiltvisits your house
  • 00:06:20.059 --> 00:06:22.261
  • and you don't know how to dealwith it, it will deal with you.
  • 00:06:22.295 --> 00:06:25.364
  • Let me start offby saying this:
  • 00:06:25.398 --> 00:06:27.066
  • the blood of Christ is theanswer to our sin and guilt.
  • 00:06:27.099 --> 00:06:32.805
  • The blood of Jesus,in my opinion,
  • 00:06:32.839 --> 00:06:35.675
  • is the--is really theonly genuine answer
  • 00:06:35.708 --> 00:06:39.145
  • for sin and guilt.
  • 00:06:39.178 --> 00:06:40.847
  • Outside of Christ, all attemptsto rid ourselves of guilt
  • 00:06:40.880 --> 00:06:46.052
  • are futile and hopeless.
  • 00:06:46.219 --> 00:06:48.120
  • I really believe that.
  • 00:06:48.921 --> 00:06:50.256
  • Outside of Christ, any attemptto deal with your guilt
  • 00:06:50.289 --> 00:06:54.360
  • will be futile and hopeless.
  • 00:06:54.627 --> 00:06:57.096
  • You heard me right.
  • 00:06:57.763 --> 00:06:59.098
  • Yeah, I know, you know,you choose therapy.
  • 00:06:59.131 --> 00:07:01.467
  • I'm not againstchoosing therapy.
  • 00:07:01.501 --> 00:07:03.569
  • You choose medicine.
  • 00:07:03.603 --> 00:07:05.171
  • I'm not againstmedicine, medication,
  • 00:07:05.204 --> 00:07:08.040
  • but I'm telling you, again, it'slike you're choosing all these
  • 00:07:08.274 --> 00:07:11.744
  • other things to try to replacethe only one that can help you.
  • 00:07:11.777 --> 00:07:16.282
  • And Jesus Christ and hisshed blood is the only real way
  • 00:07:17.016 --> 00:07:21.988
  • you're going to befree and understand
  • 00:07:22.021 --> 00:07:25.024
  • how to deal with this guilt.
  • 00:07:25.057 --> 00:07:27.260
  • Now, let me say this out loud.
  • 00:07:27.760 --> 00:07:29.228
  • God is greater thanyour guilty conscience.
  • 00:07:29.262 --> 00:07:33.399
  • God is greater thanyour guilty conscience.
  • 00:07:34.700 --> 00:07:38.838
  • I'm gonna say it two more times.
  • 00:07:40.106 --> 00:07:41.407
  • God is greater thanyour guilty conscience.
  • 00:07:41.440 --> 00:07:45.611
  • Now, I'm gonna share withyou several Scriptures here,
  • 00:07:46.045 --> 00:07:48.948
  • and I just wanna read 'em,because I wanna now fill you up
  • 00:07:48.981 --> 00:07:52.318
  • with an understanding thatChrist is your way to deal
  • 00:07:52.952 --> 00:07:56.322
  • with a guilty conscience.
  • 00:07:56.355 --> 00:07:57.790
  • Look at Hebrewschapter 9, verse 14
  • 00:07:57.957 --> 00:07:59.992
  • in the New Living Translation.
  • 00:08:00.026 --> 00:08:01.360
  • Hebrews chapter 9:14 inthe New Living Translation.
  • 00:08:01.928 --> 00:08:06.299
  • He says this.
  • 00:08:08.234 --> 00:08:09.702
  • He says, "Just think how muchmore the blood of Christ
  • 00:08:09.735 --> 00:08:16.842
  • will purify our consciencefrom sinful deeds
  • 00:08:16.876 --> 00:08:21.981
  • so that we can worshipthe living God.
  • 00:08:22.648 --> 00:08:26.586
  • For by the power,"for by the power,
  • 00:08:27.186 --> 00:08:30.556
  • "of the eternal Spirit, Christoffered himself to God
  • 00:08:30.590 --> 00:08:35.261
  • as a perfect sacrificefor our sins."
  • 00:08:35.294 --> 00:08:37.997
  • Now, let's read that again.Look at what it says here.
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:39.865
  • Look at the key to dealingwith a guilty conscience.
  • 00:08:40.166 --> 00:08:43.035
  • The key is the blood of Christpurifying your conscience
  • 00:08:43.069 --> 00:08:47.473
  • from sinful deeds so you canworship the living God.
  • 00:08:47.940 --> 00:08:50.876
  • You know, I can remember a timewhere I could hardly worship
  • 00:08:51.243 --> 00:08:54.013
  • the living God because myconscience was so inundated
  • 00:08:54.046 --> 00:08:58.184
  • with, you know, condemnation.
  • 00:08:58.217 --> 00:09:00.453
  • You know, was I praying enough?
  • 00:09:00.486 --> 00:09:02.254
  • Was I fasting enough?Was I good enough?
  • 00:09:02.288 --> 00:09:06.125
  • Was I reading the Bible enough?Was I polite enough?
  • 00:09:06.158 --> 00:09:10.696
  • And I maintained aguilty conscience.
  • 00:09:10.930 --> 00:09:12.999
  • I could hardly serve God likeGod--like he needed to be served
  • 00:09:13.032 --> 00:09:16.402
  • because it wasjust never enough,
  • 00:09:16.435 --> 00:09:19.171
  • and then I understoodthis gospel of grace,
  • 00:09:19.205 --> 00:09:22.174
  • and I recognized that if I beganto focus in on what the blood
  • 00:09:22.208 --> 00:09:25.911
  • of Jesus has done--and by hisblood that I have been set free
  • 00:09:25.945 --> 00:09:31.050
  • from a guilty conscienceby the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:09:31.083 --> 00:09:34.086
  • My conscience has been purifiedby what Jesus has done through
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:37.423
  • his blood, how Jesus has rescuedme and how Jesus has cleansed
  • 00:09:37.456 --> 00:09:40.960
  • me, how Jesus hasdied for my sins.
  • 00:09:40.993 --> 00:09:43.629
  • Once I began to focus on thatand my conscience was purified,
  • 00:09:43.663 --> 00:09:48.734
  • I can now serve Godlike I wanna serve him.
  • 00:09:48.768 --> 00:09:50.836
  • Ah, yes, look at this.
  • 00:09:51.504 --> 00:09:54.840
  • Hebrews chapter 8, verse 12.
  • 00:09:54.874 --> 00:09:56.909
  • Hebrews chapter 8 and verse 12.
  • 00:09:57.943 --> 00:10:00.646
  • Write these Scriptures down.
  • 00:10:00.680 --> 00:10:01.981
  • Get these Scriptures, becauseany time you're attacked
  • 00:10:02.014 --> 00:10:04.216
  • with guilt, you pull theseScriptures out because
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:06.986
  • God is greater than yourguilty conscience.
  • 00:10:07.019 --> 00:10:09.155
  • Verse 12 he says, "For Iwill be merciful to their
  • 00:10:09.922 --> 00:10:14.126
  • unrighteousness, and theirsins and their iniquities
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:18.230
  • will I remember no more."
  • 00:10:18.264 --> 00:10:20.299
  • So, sin is what's causing peopleto have a guilty conscience,
  • 00:10:20.966 --> 00:10:25.137
  • because you thinkyou're a bad person
  • 00:10:25.805 --> 00:10:27.673
  • and you think God's mad at you.
  • 00:10:27.707 --> 00:10:29.108
  • And right here he says,"I'm gonna show you mercy."
  • 00:10:29.141 --> 00:10:31.844
  • Mercy is the bad youdeserved you don't get,
  • 00:10:32.178 --> 00:10:36.449
  • and God says, "I'm gonnashow you mercy."
  • 00:10:36.716 --> 00:10:39.118
  • He says, "I'm gonna be mercifulto their unrighteousness,
  • 00:10:39.318 --> 00:10:42.288
  • and I'm gonna bemerciful to their sins,
  • 00:10:42.321 --> 00:10:45.758
  • and their sins andtheir iniquities
  • 00:10:45.791 --> 00:10:47.393
  • I will remember no more."
  • 00:10:47.426 --> 00:10:49.128
  • And so, while you're walkingaround being guilty of sin
  • 00:10:49.161 --> 00:10:52.798
  • in your life, you need tomeditate on the fact
  • 00:10:52.832 --> 00:10:55.367
  • that God has shown--has beenwilling--he's willing to show
  • 00:10:55.401 --> 00:10:58.003
  • mercy, and he says, "Yoursins will I remember no more."
  • 00:10:58.037 --> 00:11:01.774
  • God's greater thanyour guilty conscience.
  • 00:11:03.909 --> 00:11:06.579
  • Look at John 3:17.
  • 00:11:07.146 --> 00:11:08.748
  • See, if sin is thenumber-one cause,
  • 00:11:09.448 --> 00:11:12.852
  • when you start realizing,"Oh, I've done something wrong.
  • 00:11:13.552 --> 00:11:16.088
  • I violated this sin.
  • 00:11:16.122 --> 00:11:17.423
  • I violated this moral thing,"then look at what Jesus
  • 00:11:17.456 --> 00:11:21.527
  • has done for that.
  • 00:11:21.560 --> 00:11:22.862
  • And he did all of that to freeyou from a guilty conscience.
  • 00:11:22.895 --> 00:11:25.264
  • He died and shed his blood anddealt with sin so you don't
  • 00:11:26.165 --> 00:11:30.302
  • have to deal or be condemnedby a guilty conscience.
  • 00:11:30.336 --> 00:11:34.406
  • Look at verse 17.
  • 00:11:34.774 --> 00:11:36.108
  • "For God sent not his Son intothe world to condemn the world."
  • 00:11:36.142 --> 00:11:40.679
  • Condemnation is alwaysabout not enough, not enough.
  • 00:11:40.713 --> 00:11:43.382
  • That you're no good.You're not good enough.
  • 00:11:43.415 --> 00:11:45.918
  • He didn't send Jesusto condemn the world.
  • 00:11:45.951 --> 00:11:48.721
  • "But that the world throughhim might be saved,"
  • 00:11:49.221 --> 00:11:53.626
  • so Jesus is not comingto condemn you.
  • 00:11:53.826 --> 00:11:55.928
  • Jesus is not coming to tryto make you feel guilty.
  • 00:11:56.128 --> 00:11:58.831
  • That's why I have a problemwith preachers in the pulpit
  • 00:11:58.864 --> 00:12:01.033
  • that say things to try tomake people feel guilty.
  • 00:12:01.066 --> 00:12:03.536
  • Jesus didn't come to try togive you a guilty conscience.
  • 00:12:03.569 --> 00:12:06.772
  • Jesus did not come totry to condemn you.
  • 00:12:06.806 --> 00:12:09.642
  • He came, praise God,the Bible says,
  • 00:12:09.675 --> 00:12:12.411
  • but that the world throughhim might be saved,
  • 00:12:12.444 --> 00:12:16.081
  • not be condemned.
  • 00:12:16.115 --> 00:12:17.950
  • He's trying to save youfrom a guilty conscience,
  • 00:12:18.317 --> 00:12:20.452
  • not give you aguilty conscience.
  • 00:12:20.486 --> 00:12:23.155
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 5:21.2 Corinthians chapter 5:21.
  • 00:12:23.189 --> 00:12:27.793
  • I'll say it again.
  • 00:12:27.827 --> 00:12:29.161
  • God's greater thanyour guilty conscience.
  • 00:12:29.195 --> 00:12:31.430
  • He says in verse 21, "For hehath made him to be sin for us,
  • 00:12:31.463 --> 00:12:36.502
  • who knew no sin."
  • 00:12:36.802 --> 00:12:38.170
  • Jesus was made sin,who knew no sin,
  • 00:12:38.204 --> 00:12:39.805
  • who had never sinned.
  • 00:12:39.839 --> 00:12:41.207
  • "That we might be made therighteousness of God,"
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:43.375
  • so look at his love.
  • 00:12:43.409 --> 00:12:44.710
  • He says, "I'm gonnatake your sin upon myself.
  • 00:12:44.743 --> 00:12:48.480
  • And I've never sinned, but I'mgonna take all your sins upon
  • 00:12:48.514 --> 00:12:50.816
  • me so you can be made therighteousness of God."
  • 00:12:50.850 --> 00:12:54.486
  • And the day you believe you'rerighteous you'll start stepping
  • 00:12:54.520 --> 00:12:57.456
  • away from that guilt, becauseyou'll remind yourself
  • 00:12:57.489 --> 00:12:59.658
  • that you're therighteousness of God.
  • 00:12:59.692 --> 00:13:01.026
  • See, guilt will try totell you you're bad.
  • 00:13:01.393 --> 00:13:04.730
  • Guilt will try to tell you, youdeserve everything that's
  • 00:13:04.763 --> 00:13:07.633
  • coming to you, but whatJesus did, he says,
  • 00:13:07.666 --> 00:13:09.935
  • "I'm taking all your sin, I'mtaking all your potential
  • 00:13:09.969 --> 00:13:13.205
  • for a guilty conscience away,
  • 00:13:13.239 --> 00:13:15.007
  • and here's whatI want you to be.
  • 00:13:15.040 --> 00:13:16.342
  • I want you to berighteousness-conscious.
  • 00:13:16.375 --> 00:13:18.244
  • I want you to be consciousof the fact that I made you
  • 00:13:18.277 --> 00:13:21.313
  • the righteousness of God."
  • 00:13:21.347 --> 00:13:22.982
  • Ephesians chapter 1 and verse 7.
  • 00:13:23.749 --> 00:13:25.618
  • And I know these area lotta Scriptures,
  • 00:13:25.651 --> 00:13:27.019
  • but, man, I'm trying to giveyou--I'm trying to give you
  • 00:13:27.052 --> 00:13:29.488
  • a bottle of gos-pills so you canfight guilt when it shows up.
  • 00:13:29.521 --> 00:13:35.427
  • Ephesians 1:7.
  • 00:13:35.995 --> 00:13:37.329
  • He says, "In whomwe have redemption,"
  • 00:13:37.363 --> 00:13:39.365
  • or deliverance, how?
  • 00:13:39.398 --> 00:13:41.567
  • "Through his blood.
  • 00:13:41.600 --> 00:13:42.902
  • We have the forgiveness of sins
  • 00:13:42.935 --> 00:13:44.904
  • according to theriches of his grace."
  • 00:13:44.937 --> 00:13:46.538
  • We have the forgivenessof sins according
  • 00:13:46.572 --> 00:13:49.041
  • to the riches of his grace.
  • 00:13:49.074 --> 00:13:50.576
  • You have the forgiveness of sin.
  • 00:13:50.609 --> 00:13:52.077
  • Don't walk around and beguilty of a sin and not realize
  • 00:13:52.111 --> 00:13:55.614
  • that God has alreadymade his mind,
  • 00:13:55.648 --> 00:13:57.883
  • through his blood,up to forgive you.

  • He's already throughhis blood redeemed you,
  • 00:13:59.885 --> 00:14:02.354
  • and so if something crazyhappens or you sin in your life,
  • 00:14:02.388 --> 00:14:05.157
  • remind yourself,"I've been redeemed,
  • 00:14:05.190 --> 00:14:07.092
  • and God has forgivenme," and then go ahead.
  • 00:14:07.126 --> 00:14:09.428
  • Don't let the guiltdeal with you.
  • 00:14:09.461 --> 00:14:10.896
  • Let the blood deal with you.

  • Isaiah chapter 1, verse 18.
  • 00:14:13.766 --> 00:14:16.302
  • I'm almost there.

  • Isaiah chapter 1 and verse 18.
  • 00:14:17.703 --> 00:14:20.239
  • He says, "Come now.
  • 00:14:20.272 --> 00:14:22.174
  • Let us reason together, saiththe Lord: though your sins

  • though they be red like crimson,they shall be as wool."
  • 00:14:33.485 --> 00:14:37.990
  • Look at God saying,"I am a game changer.
  • 00:14:38.390 --> 00:14:41.527
  • I am a game changer,and when I show up
  • 00:14:42.027 --> 00:14:44.964

  • I transform yourguilty conscience

  • I take care of your sin

  • so that your sin won'ttake care of you."
  • 00:14:57.509 --> 00:15:00.145
  • Psalms 103, verse 12.
  • 00:15:02.715 --> 00:15:04.216
  • This is powerful.
  • 00:15:04.383 --> 00:15:05.684
  • This is probably one of thefirst Scriptures I got ahold
  • 00:15:05.718 --> 00:15:08.821
  • of after getting bornagain, and sinning,
  • 00:15:08.854 --> 00:15:12.891
  • and then thought, "Well,I'm not saved anymore
  • 00:15:12.925 --> 00:15:15.427
  • because God doesn't love me."
  • 00:15:15.461 --> 00:15:16.962
  • And I felt so guilty, and thisbrother shared this with me.
  • 00:15:16.996 --> 00:15:20.065
  • I'll never forgetthis Scripture.
  • 00:15:20.099 --> 00:15:21.400
  • He says, "As far as theeast is from the west,
  • 00:15:21.433 --> 00:15:24.937
  • so far hath he removed ourtransgressions from us."
  • 00:15:25.571 --> 00:15:29.174
  • He has removed ourtransgressions from us,
  • 00:15:29.508 --> 00:15:32.544
  • and he has thrown it as faras the east is from the west.
  • 00:15:32.578 --> 00:15:36.415
  • Man, they're never comingback together again,
  • 00:15:36.582 --> 00:15:38.384
  • and the Bible says it landsinto the sea of forgetfulness.
  • 00:15:38.684 --> 00:15:41.587
  • That's how God hasdealt with your sins.
  • 00:15:42.321 --> 00:15:44.623
  • So, if God has dealtwith your sins,
  • 00:15:44.923 --> 00:15:46.525
  • you gotta makesure your sin--
  • 00:15:46.558 --> 00:15:48.360
  • that your sinsdon't deal with you,
  • 00:15:48.394 --> 00:15:50.963
  • that your sins won't deal withyou and then bring about that
  • 00:15:51.196 --> 00:15:54.133
  • guilty conscience, and thenguilt begins to wreck your life.
  • 00:15:54.166 --> 00:16:00.339
  • Look at Romanschapter 8, verse 1.
  • 00:16:01.340 --> 00:16:03.208
  • Yeah, sometimes I have to justgive Scripture because I believe
  • 00:16:04.276 --> 00:16:07.913
  • that when thesethings come up,
  • 00:16:07.946 --> 00:16:09.281
  • we ought to know howto intelligently respond.
  • 00:16:09.314 --> 00:16:11.216
  • We ought to have somethingfrom the--for the devil.
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:12.918
  • When the devil shows upand tries to bring that guilt
  • 00:16:12.951 --> 00:16:15.454
  • on your life, you need to beable to respond and say,
  • 00:16:15.487 --> 00:16:18.323
  • "You don't want none of me.
  • 00:16:18.357 --> 00:16:20.292
  • You don't want none of me, brah.You know, you wanna dance?
  • 00:16:20.325 --> 00:16:22.594
  • Let's dance."
  • 00:16:22.628 --> 00:16:23.962
  • And then, you pullthese Scriptures out
  • 00:16:23.996 --> 00:16:25.330
  • and just start quoting 'em.
  • 00:16:25.364 --> 00:16:26.698
  • You quote 'emuntil that guilty--
  • 00:16:26.732 --> 00:16:28.367
  • that guilt goesaway, praise God?
  • 00:16:28.400 --> 00:16:30.736
  • I'm so excited but--allright, look at Romans 8:1.
  • 00:16:31.303 --> 00:16:34.073
  • He said, "There is thereforenow no condemnation to them
  • 00:16:34.706 --> 00:16:40.179
  • which are in Christ Jesus."
  • 00:16:40.212 --> 00:16:42.381
  • Now, we gotta be careful 'causemost people condemnation comes
  • 00:16:42.815 --> 00:16:46.752
  • through self-condemnation.
  • 00:16:46.785 --> 00:16:48.587
  • You can't condemn yourself.
  • 00:16:48.620 --> 00:16:50.022
  • "There is therefore nowno condemnation to them
  • 00:16:50.456 --> 00:16:52.825
  • which are in Christ Jesus,"so if you're in Christ Jesus
  • 00:16:52.858 --> 00:16:58.797
  • there is no condemnation.
  • 00:16:58.831 --> 00:17:00.165
  • And that's whatSatan wants to do.
  • 00:17:00.599 --> 00:17:02.167
  • He wants to use sin to bringguilt and condemnation
  • 00:17:02.201 --> 00:17:05.637
  • into your life, and he says if--the day you realize that
  • 00:17:05.671 --> 00:17:09.274
  • you're in Christ Jesus and theday you realize what Christ
  • 00:17:09.308 --> 00:17:12.511
  • has done for you,there is no more
  • 00:17:12.544 --> 00:17:14.646
  • condemnation,no more guilt.
  • 00:17:14.680 --> 00:17:16.048
  • You deal with that guiltyconscience by realizing,
  • 00:17:16.081 --> 00:17:18.684
  • "Wait a minute,I'm in Christ Jesus.
  • 00:17:18.717 --> 00:17:20.786
  • All is well."
  • 00:17:20.819 --> 00:17:24.256
  • Look at 2 Corinthianschapter 5 and verse 17.
  • 00:17:24.289 --> 00:17:27.226
  • 2 Corinthians 5 andverse 17, and then one more.
  • 00:17:27.526 --> 00:17:30.662
  • He says, "Therefore ifany man be in Christ--"
  • 00:17:31.263 --> 00:17:33.465
  • There it is again.See, that's the thing.
  • 00:17:33.499 --> 00:17:35.634
  • You answer that question.
  • 00:17:35.667 --> 00:17:37.102
  • You know, ask yourself,"Am I in Christ?
  • 00:17:37.136 --> 00:17:38.971
  • Yes."
  • 00:17:39.004 --> 00:17:40.305
  • So, you're in Christ, andhe said--what did he say
  • 00:17:40.339 --> 00:17:42.274
  • to those who are in Christ?
  • 00:17:42.307 --> 00:17:43.642
  • "Therefore if anyman be in Christ,
  • 00:17:43.675 --> 00:17:45.077
  • he is a new creature:old things are passed away;
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:49.281
  • behold, all thingsare become new."
  • 00:17:49.314 --> 00:17:52.484
  • You got to make sure that thedevil doesn't have a rope tied
  • 00:17:52.518 --> 00:17:56.455
  • to your ankle, trying tokeep you in your past.
  • 00:17:56.488 --> 00:18:00.058
  • All of us have a past,but you don't
  • 00:18:00.092 --> 00:18:03.095
  • have to live there anymore.
  • 00:18:03.128 --> 00:18:04.796
  • All of us have a past,but you don't have
  • 00:18:05.297 --> 00:18:07.266
  • to live there anymore.
  • 00:18:07.299 --> 00:18:09.268
  • Lemme show you this.
  • 00:18:09.301 --> 00:18:10.836
  • Psalms 32, verses 1through 2, and I'll move on.
  • 00:18:10.869 --> 00:18:13.739
  • Psalms 32, verses 1 through 2.
  • 00:18:13.939 --> 00:18:15.407
  • I'm just amazed at whatthe Scripture all over says.
  • 00:18:15.440 --> 00:18:20.879
  • He says, "Blessed is he whosetransgression is forgiven,"
  • 00:18:20.913 --> 00:18:24.683
  • is forgiven, "whosesin is covered."
  • 00:18:26.118 --> 00:18:29.354
  • It's taken care of.
  • 00:18:29.388 --> 00:18:30.822
  • "Blessed is the man untowhom the Lord imputeth
  • 00:18:30.856 --> 00:18:34.593
  • not iniquity--" he is notcharging that iniquity
  • 00:18:34.626 --> 00:18:38.063
  • to your account, so you'reguilty over something
  • 00:18:38.096 --> 00:18:41.033
  • that's not gonnabe charged to you.
  • 00:18:41.066 --> 00:18:42.901
  • "The Lord imputeth not iniquity,
  • 00:18:44.203 --> 00:18:47.072
  • and in whose spiritthere is no guile."
  • 00:18:47.105 --> 00:18:50.909
  • You know, the Bible warnsus in the New Testament
  • 00:18:50.943 --> 00:18:52.611
  • that don't speak guile.
  • 00:18:52.644 --> 00:18:53.946
  • If you wanna have gooddays and live a long life,
  • 00:18:53.979 --> 00:18:57.382
  • don't let your mouthspeak guile.
  • 00:18:57.416 --> 00:18:59.084
  • Now, I have, hopefully, clearlystated that God is greater
  • 00:19:01.086 --> 00:19:07.993
  • than your guilty conscience.
  • 00:19:08.026 --> 00:19:09.461
  • And there are some people whosuffer under such tormenting
  • 00:19:10.996 --> 00:19:15.200
  • guilt because of suchegregious acts,
  • 00:19:15.234 --> 00:19:19.871
  • that sometimes they just wannabecome numb to what I'm saying,
  • 00:19:22.274 --> 00:19:26.678
  • so let me try to attackit another way.
  • 00:19:27.779 --> 00:19:29.715
  • What are the results in thelives of people who refuse
  • 00:19:30.716 --> 00:19:36.855
  • to deal with theguilt God's way?
  • 00:19:36.888 --> 00:19:39.491
  • What's the result in thelives of people who say,
  • 00:19:41.493 --> 00:19:44.696
  • "Well, I don't believein God, and yadda
  • 00:19:45.931 --> 00:19:49.167
  • yadda yadda yadda-ya, and I'mjust gonna--I'm just a bad
  • 00:19:49.201 --> 00:19:53.205
  • person, and I deserveeverything that comes to me"?
  • 00:19:53.238 --> 00:19:55.274
  • I want you to dealwith the guilt.
  • 00:19:56.675 --> 00:19:58.076
  • You can.
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:19:59.511
  • Jesus has dealt with it.
  • 00:19:59.544 --> 00:20:00.879
  • By faith receive what Jesus hasdone and see yourself walk free.
  • 00:20:00.912 --> 00:20:04.449
  • Believe in Jesus Christ,receive him as your Lord,
  • 00:20:04.783 --> 00:20:06.952
  • but what are the results?
  • 00:20:07.252 --> 00:20:08.553
  • What are the results?Let's talk about some results.
  • 00:20:08.587 --> 00:20:11.356
  • There are some bad things, andthen there are some good things.
  • 00:20:11.390 --> 00:20:14.526
  • I got some good news,and I got some bad news.
  • 00:20:14.559 --> 00:20:16.528
  • Let's look at thebad news first.
  • 00:20:16.561 --> 00:20:18.730
  • If you fail to deal with theissue of guilt in your life,
  • 00:20:18.764 --> 00:20:22.301
  • here's the first result:self-condemnation.
  • 00:20:22.334 --> 00:20:25.537
  • Self-condemnation.
  • 00:20:26.872 --> 00:20:29.808
  • It's when a person condemns
  • 00:20:29.841 --> 00:20:31.476
  • himself becauseof guilty feelings.
  • 00:20:31.510 --> 00:20:34.379
  • He's also openingthe door for a host
  • 00:20:34.413 --> 00:20:36.581
  • of other emotional problems.
  • 00:20:36.615 --> 00:20:38.450
  • When self-condemnation showsup and you condemn yourself
  • 00:20:38.483 --> 00:20:43.088
  • because of those guiltyfeelings, then you're gonna
  • 00:20:43.121 --> 00:20:46.258
  • open the door for a lot ofemotional issues to come.
  • 00:20:46.291 --> 00:20:50.228
  • Emotional issues.
  • 00:20:50.262 --> 00:20:51.596
  • For example, emotionalissues like loneliness.
  • 00:20:51.630 --> 00:20:54.933
  • Loneliness is gonna be a resultof this self-condemnation.
  • 00:20:55.300 --> 00:20:58.003
  • Emotional issues likean inferiority complex.
  • 00:20:58.770 --> 00:21:02.274
  • You're gonna walkaround inferior,
  • 00:21:02.541 --> 00:21:04.676
  • feelings of inferiority.
  • 00:21:05.811 --> 00:21:07.779
  • Emotional issues likeanxiety when you begin
  • 00:21:07.813 --> 00:21:13.652
  • to allow self-condemnationto be there because
  • 00:21:13.685 --> 00:21:16.355
  • you refuse to dealwith the guilt.
  • 00:21:16.388 --> 00:21:18.123
  • I've met people whohave allowed the guilt
  • 00:21:18.156 --> 00:21:20.959
  • to torment them so bad,
  • 00:21:20.992 --> 00:21:23.362
  • then they start condemningthemselves for something
  • 00:21:23.395 --> 00:21:25.497
  • they were not evenresponsible for.
  • 00:21:25.530 --> 00:21:29.868
  • You know, a person usuallyfeels that he is merely getting
  • 00:21:29.901 --> 00:21:34.272
  • what he deservesfor being so bad.
  • 00:21:34.306 --> 00:21:36.675
  • That's whatself-condemnation does.
  • 00:21:36.708 --> 00:21:39.010
  • "I'm just simply getting what Ideserve just for being so bad."
  • 00:21:39.044 --> 00:21:44.316
  • You know the number of livesthat have been just so destroyed
  • 00:21:45.817 --> 00:21:48.620
  • because of self-condemnation,
  • 00:21:48.653 --> 00:21:51.423
  • because they havejust not dealt with it?
  • 00:21:51.456 --> 00:21:53.925
  • Here's the second resultof not dealing with guilt.
  • 00:21:55.761 --> 00:21:58.964
  • You know whatyou'll start doing?
  • 00:21:59.798 --> 00:22:01.166
  • Number two, you'll startplacing blame on others
  • 00:22:01.199 --> 00:22:04.403
  • for your problemsand for your wrong.
  • 00:22:05.437 --> 00:22:08.573
  • You'll start placingblames on others.
  • 00:22:09.808 --> 00:22:12.577
  • I mean, the guiltthat Adam and Eve
  • 00:22:12.611 --> 00:22:14.413
  • had in the garden,remember that?
  • 00:22:14.446 --> 00:22:16.515
  • You remember the first thingAdam did as a result
  • 00:22:17.082 --> 00:22:19.184
  • of the guilt in the gardenand they hid themselves
  • 00:22:19.217 --> 00:22:22.687
  • because of that guilt?
  • 00:22:22.721 --> 00:22:24.289
  • He started blaming.He blamed Eve.
  • 00:22:24.322 --> 00:22:26.224
  • He said, "This womanyou gave me,
  • 00:22:26.258 --> 00:22:28.226
  • that's the reasonwhy this happened."
  • 00:22:28.260 --> 00:22:29.728
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:22:30.395 --> 00:22:31.797
  • If you're a person that somehowgotten yourself in the blame
  • 00:22:31.830 --> 00:22:35.167
  • game, placing blame onothers for your wrongs
  • 00:22:35.200 --> 00:22:40.272
  • and for your problems,that is result
  • 00:22:40.305 --> 00:22:43.008
  • of not dealing with guilt.
  • 00:22:43.041 --> 00:22:45.277
  • And, you know, it's not--itdoesn't take a rocket scientist
  • 00:22:45.310 --> 00:22:49.281
  • to understand why peopleoperate the way they operate.
  • 00:22:49.314 --> 00:22:52.551
  • It's because they don't dealwith the guilt in their life,
  • 00:22:53.351 --> 00:22:56.021
  • and then it's just easierto blame somebody else.
  • 00:22:56.054 --> 00:22:58.223
  • It's just easier to blamesomebody else for the wrongs.
  • 00:22:59.291 --> 00:23:01.293
  • Here's a third result ofnot dealing with guilt:
  • 00:23:02.928 --> 00:23:05.263
  • you become a pessimist.
  • 00:23:05.464 --> 00:23:07.899
  • Pessimism becomes apart of your character.
  • 00:23:07.933 --> 00:23:11.002
  • You have this negativeoutlook on life
  • 00:23:12.070 --> 00:23:13.972
  • and, I mean, I guess so.
  • 00:23:14.005 --> 00:23:15.340
  • I mean, you're just soheavy with all of the guilt.
  • 00:23:15.373 --> 00:23:19.077
  • I mean, it becomes hard to havea positive attitude with a heavy
  • 00:23:20.145 --> 00:23:23.548
  • load of guilt, and whenyou have a heavy load
  • 00:23:23.582 --> 00:23:27.152
  • of guilt you area pessimist.
  • 00:23:27.185 --> 00:23:30.255
  • Everything's justnegative around you
  • 00:23:30.288 --> 00:23:31.790
  • because you justwalk with this guilt.
  • 00:23:31.823 --> 00:23:33.859
  • I pray that the practicality ofwhat I'm preaching this morning
  • 00:23:34.759 --> 00:23:38.630
  • is helping you to see yourselfor to see someone else,
  • 00:23:38.663 --> 00:23:41.900
  • or to help you understand howand why people are going through
  • 00:23:41.933 --> 00:23:44.703
  • some of the things thatthey're going through,
  • 00:23:44.736 --> 00:23:46.404
  • and yet there isstill one more thing
  • 00:23:47.105 --> 00:23:50.609
  • that I wanna puton the table here.
  • 00:23:50.642 --> 00:23:52.544
  • When you fail todeal with guilt,
  • 00:23:52.844 --> 00:23:54.880
  • the results of guilt is goingto be physical illness.
  • 00:23:54.913 --> 00:23:59.184
  • There are people whohave--they've gotten cancer
  • 00:23:59.951 --> 00:24:02.954
  • because of the guilt that theydidn't know how to deal with.
  • 00:24:02.988 --> 00:24:06.157
  • There are people who havegotten--have had heart attacks
  • 00:24:07.058 --> 00:24:11.229
  • because they didn't knowhow to deal with the guilt.
  • 00:24:11.263 --> 00:24:13.665
  • There are people who have abusedthemselves and set themselves up
  • 00:24:13.698 --> 00:24:17.636
  • to be abused becausethey did not know
  • 00:24:17.669 --> 00:24:20.205
  • how to deal with the guilt.
  • 00:24:20.238 --> 00:24:22.040
  • Physical illnesses.
  • 00:24:22.073 --> 00:24:24.643
  • Think of that.Think of that.
  • 00:24:24.676 --> 00:24:26.378
  • Think of you going to the doctorand he diagnoses you
  • 00:24:26.411 --> 00:24:28.813
  • with a sickness that came as aresult of the guilt
  • 00:24:28.847 --> 00:24:31.283
  • in your life, high bloodpressure that came as a result
  • 00:24:31.316 --> 00:24:34.519
  • of the guilt in your life, heartattacks that occur because
  • 00:24:34.553 --> 00:24:38.256
  • of the guiltness--the failureto deal with the guilt
  • 00:24:38.290 --> 00:24:41.693
  • in your life, cancer that showsup because you failed
  • 00:24:41.726 --> 00:24:45.797
