  • 00:00:03.170 --> 00:00:05.090
  • Creflo Dollar: You can't stop the blessing on me,
  • 00:00:05.100 --> 00:00:06.290
  • because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:00:07.000 --> 00:00:08.090
  • I believe Jesus when I'm up, when I'm down,
  • 00:00:08.100 --> 00:00:10.080
  • I believe Jesus when I'm doing right
  • 00:00:10.090 --> 00:00:12.000
  • or even when I do wrong I still believe Jesus,
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:15.040
  • and the blessing comes on me and then one day you look at me
  • 00:00:15.050 --> 00:00:18.120
  • and I'm not doin' what I used to do, but the behavior is
  • 00:00:18.130 --> 00:00:22.080
  • trying to rob me of my identity.
  • 00:00:22.090 --> 00:00:24.210
  • I believe Jesus, I am a Christian, I am
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:27.160
  • the righteousness of God.
  • 00:00:27.170 --> 00:00:28.270
  • No matter what I do, I am not how I behave, I am who Jesus
  • 00:00:28.280 --> 00:00:33.130
  • says I am, and I am blessed because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:39.130
  • announcer: Calling all men.
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:41.040
  • Creflo: It's time for you to find out your
  • 00:00:41.050 --> 00:00:42.190
  • place in the body of Christ.
  • 00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:43.290
  • Gary Taylor: You are not gonna be satisfied until you do
  • 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:49.030
  • what he commissioned you to do.
  • 00:00:49.040 --> 00:00:51.210
  • Michael T. Smith: I wanted to do right but couldn't,
  • 00:00:51.220 --> 00:00:53.010
  • but now the Spirit of God lives in me,
  • 00:00:53.020 --> 00:00:54.190
  • and he gives me power to do what I could not do on my own.
  • 00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:57.120
  • Ken Terry: I expect to get understanding.
  • 00:00:57.130 --> 00:00:59.110
  • I expect for me to grow in my grace.
  • 00:00:59.120 --> 00:01:01.260
  • Kenneth Fuller: So when things come our way, when things
  • 00:01:01.270 --> 00:01:03.260
  • come up against us, we know that we're comin' through.
  • 00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:07.090
  • announcer: See you there.
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:09.050
  • This is your world
  • 00:01:09.060 --> 00:01:11.250
  • so let's vow to make it a better place
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:16.170
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:16.180 --> 00:01:21.240
  • your love is here to stay
  • 00:01:21.250 --> 00:01:24.200
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:28.120
  • Oh, let his love shine bright in you
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:32.230
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:35.270
  • so we embrace your love today
  • 00:01:35.280 --> 00:01:39.120
  • We are changed
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:42.280
  • Creflo: Colossians 2 verse 8, I'd like to look at this
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:48.090
  • out of the NIV, and then the Amplified,
  • 00:01:48.100 --> 00:01:52.130
  • Colossians 2 and 8.
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:54.030
  • Now, here's what Colossians is gonna warn us of now.
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:57.180
  • He's gonna warn us of what's gonna happen besides this.
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:02:01.150
  • Let's start in the NIV first, Colossians 2:8, NIV, and then
  • 00:02:01.160 --> 00:02:06.100
  • the Amplified.
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:08.220
  • Now, he says see to it that no one takes you captive
  • 00:02:08.230 --> 00:02:14.230
  • through hollow and deceptive philosophy which depends
  • 00:02:16.000 --> 00:02:20.260
  • on human tradition and the elemental spiritual
  • 00:02:20.270 --> 00:02:25.100
  • forces of this world rather than on Christ.
  • 00:02:25.110 --> 00:02:31.090
  • A lot of philosophies--
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:33.080
  • Have you ever heard people?
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:34.130
  • They they come up with these great inspirational quotes
  • 00:02:34.140 --> 00:02:39.040
  • and philosophies, and it's not even based on Christ.
  • 00:02:39.050 --> 00:02:44.070
  • It's not based on Christ.
  • 00:02:44.080 --> 00:02:45.200
  • You know, God's got to take you through suffering before he can
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:49.010
  • take you to glory.
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:50.250
  • Eh, most of that's caused by us because we won't believe him.
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:56.140
  • Philosophies that are not even based on Christ.
  • 00:02:56.150 --> 00:02:58.220
  • Now, look at the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:02:58.230 --> 00:03:01.130
  • Look at the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:02.290
  • "See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:08.000
  • yourself captive by his so-called philosophy
  • 00:03:08.010 --> 00:03:11.250
  • and intellectualism and vain deceit, (idle fancies, and plain
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:16.240
  • nonsense), following human tradition, (men's ideas
  • 00:03:16.250 --> 00:03:21.040
  • of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:25.150
  • notions following the rudimentary
  • 00:03:25.160 --> 00:03:28.140
  • and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding
  • 00:03:28.150 --> 00:03:32.240
  • the teachings of Christ (the Messiah)."
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:37.190
  • A Christian life that's based on philosophy and not based
  • 00:03:37.200 --> 00:03:41.060
  • on the teachings of Christ, he said, just plain nonsense.
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:45.100
  • It's just plain nonsense, and we got plain nonsense in the church
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:49.000
  • today.
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:50.060
  • To tell the woman that you gotta wear a dress in order to be
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:52.190
  • holy, that's not from the teachings of Christ,
  • 00:03:52.200 --> 00:03:57.020
  • that's something--that's nonsense to tell her she can't
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:04:00.220
  • wear makeup or she's a jezebel, that's just plain nonsense.
  • 00:04:00.230 --> 00:04:06.180
  • To tell you that, you know, every time you sin you got to go
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:11.060
  • get baptized again, got-dog, you might as well stay by the water.
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:17.070
  • That's not teachings based on Christ, it's just plain
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:22.220
  • nonsense.
  • 00:04:22.230 --> 00:04:24.280
  • It's plain nonsense to tell people they're going to go
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:26.270
  • to hell, if they sin is nonsense.
  • 00:04:26.280 --> 00:04:31.290
  • Let me tell ya something, if anybody in this church goes
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:36.050
  • to hell for sinning, everybody in here gonna go to hell
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:39.240
  • for sinning.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:43.250
  • Some of y'all are like, what?
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:45.100
  • Surely, you don't think that you've perfected that.
  • 00:04:45.110 --> 00:04:50.130
  • "Well, I ain't never committed adultery."
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:52.270
  • "Oh! You ain't never committed adultery,
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:55.180
  • but last night God saw you, you had a bad attitude
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:05:00.080
  • with that waitress and refused to leave a tip."
  • 00:05:00.090 --> 00:05:04.030
  • That Ain't Christ's light.
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:05.270
  • You shot a bird at the policeman 'cause he wouldn't let you go.
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:11.010
  • Come on, man.
  • 00:05:11.020 --> 00:05:12.290
  • Come on, man.
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:14.110
  • We all need a savior.
  • 00:05:14.120 --> 00:05:16.190
  • I said we all need a savior.
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:19.140
  • Alright, now, does everybody understand what I just said?
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:25.140
  • Now, what I'm gonna do--and you don't have time to shout,
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:29.120
  • because you're gonna have to see if I'm telling you the truth.
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:32.040
  • I'm going to take you through the scripture,
  • 00:05:32.050 --> 00:05:34.240
  • scripture, scripture, scripture, scripture, scripture.
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:37.240
  • We're gonna look at the truth before the cross versus
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:43.050
  • the truth after the cross.
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:46.050
  • How is it that Jesus can die on the cross and shed his blood
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:49.060
  • and nothing changed?
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:52.010
  • And we are living life--when you live life under the law,
  • 00:05:52.020 --> 00:05:55.070
  • you're living as if Jesus accomplished nothing
  • 00:05:55.080 --> 00:05:58.140
  • on the cross.
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:06:01.240
  • Mm-hmm.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:03.150
  • If you still think that you're going to hell because you missed
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:06.220
  • the mark, then why in the world did he die on the cross?
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:11.180
  • If you still think that God made you sick 'cause he tryin'
  • 00:06:11.190 --> 00:06:14.000
  • to teach you something, then why did he provide healing
  • 00:06:14.010 --> 00:06:16.220
  • on the cross?
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:18.250
  • If you're still carrying your life as if you're living
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:22.160
  • under the law, then what he did on the cross was an absolute
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:27.190
  • waste of time if you refuse to make the adjustments
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:33.100
  • from the law to grace.
  • 00:06:33.110 --> 00:06:35.240
  • Are you ready?
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:37.030
  • Alright, first thing we want to look at is the contrast
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:39.110
  • between the Old and the New Testament.
  • 00:06:39.120 --> 00:06:42.030
  • I kinda said a lot of that, so I'm gonna
  • 00:06:42.040 --> 00:06:43.210
  • do this pretty quickly.
  • 00:06:43.220 --> 00:06:45.130
  • Contrast between the Old and the New Testament.
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:47.090
  • Now, before the cross, the Old Covenant existed,
  • 00:06:47.100 --> 00:06:52.150
  • before the cross, the covenant of the law, the 10 Commandments
  • 00:06:52.160 --> 00:06:55.060
  • all existed before the cross, the Old Covenant was
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:07:00.230
  • an agreement between God and Jewish people.
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:05.060
  • The Old Covenant was a performance-based covenant.
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:07.240
  • If you, if you, if you, the covenant of the law was
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:11.120
  • a performance-based covenant, it was based on what you do, if you
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:14.290
  • do, then God do.
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:16.230
  • That was the covenant before the cross.
  • 00:07:16.240 --> 00:07:18.240
  • If you do, then God do.
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.100
  • If you good, then God will be good.
  • 00:07:20.110 --> 00:07:22.240
  • If you bad, God be bad.
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:25.050
  • Whatever you do, God do.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:27.070
  • It's a performance-based covenant.
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:29.230
  • Before the cross the Old Covenant was there.
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:32.100
  • It was a conditional covenant.
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:35.060
  • It was a conditional covenant.
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:36.200
  • The condition was God would bless you on the condition that
  • 00:07:36.210 --> 00:07:41.200
  • you did what was right to earn the blessing.
  • 00:07:41.210 --> 00:07:45.120
  • It was a covenant based on what you do.
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:49.240
  • It was a self-righteous covenant, that's what it was.
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:54.230
  • Now, after the cross, the New Covenant existed.
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:59.180
  • It was an agreement between God and Jesus.
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:03.250
  • Before the cross, the agreement was between God
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:06.010
  • and Jewish people.
  • 00:08:06.020 --> 00:08:08.050
  • After the cross, it was based on faith in the finished works
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:12.060
  • of Jesus, not based on your works.
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:16.040
  • After the cross, it was an unconditional covenant.
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:21.180
  • That unconditional covenant was based on what Jesus has already
  • 00:08:21.190 --> 00:08:25.050
  • done and your faith in what Jesus has done.
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:29.150
  • And after the cross, this was righteousness as a gift, and it
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:35.010
  • wasn't self-righteousness, something you earn to do, okay?
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:38.290
  • So this is the basis of what we're getting ready to do.
  • 00:08:39.000 --> 00:08:43.050
  • Now, let's take this first subject here.
  • 00:08:43.060 --> 00:08:47.000
  • What are the requirements to be blessed?
  • 00:08:47.010 --> 00:08:49.220
  • What does a Christian have to do to be blessed?
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:53.040
  • All right, before the cross, here's what you had to do to be
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:56.140
  • blessed.
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:57.140
  • Deuteronomy 28 verses 1 through 3 and 15.
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:09:01.140
  • What does a person have to do to be blessed?
  • 00:09:01.150 --> 00:09:07.080
  • Now, you're gonna find out that some of the things you heard
  • 00:09:07.090 --> 00:09:09.210
  • came from before the cross.
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:12.140
  • Alright, now look at what it says here in Deuteronomy 28
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:18.030
  • verses 1 through 3 and 15, "And it shall come to pass, if thou
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:23.020
  • shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:26.040
  • to observe to do all his commandments which I command
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:28.210
  • thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:31.110
  • above all nations of the earth:" verse 2, "And all these
  • 00:09:31.120 --> 00:09:35.080
  • blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee," "condition,
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:38.140
  • if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God."
  • 00:09:38.150 --> 00:09:42.100
  • Question: According to what we just read, what is
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:45.210
  • the requirement for you to get the blessing?
  • 00:09:45.220 --> 00:09:50.130
  • You got to?
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:53.010
  • You got to do or obey how many of the commandments?
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:59.020
  • All commandments, and if you obey all the commandments,
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:03.160
  • that's 613, then you'll be blessed, alright?
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:08.270
  • Verse three, "Blessed shalt thou be in the city and blessed shalt
  • 00:10:08.280 --> 00:10:12.220
  • thou be in the field," and he announces the blessing on you,
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:16.230
  • and we call this the blessing, but we do not tell people this
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:21.070
  • is a conditional blessing.
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:23.060
  • You are blessed only if you can obey all 613 commandments.
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:29.070
  • That was before Christ.
  • 00:10:32.190 --> 00:10:33.250
  • And look at verse 15 real quick, verse 15, "But it shall come
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:39.190
  • to pass if thou," performance-based, "if thou will
  • 00:10:39.200 --> 00:10:42.240
  • not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God to observe
  • 00:10:42.250 --> 00:10:45.200
  • to do all all his commandments and his all his statutes which I
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:50.170
  • command thee this day; that all these curses shall come
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:53.190
  • upon thee and overtake thee."
  • 00:10:53.200 --> 00:10:55.160
  • Oh!
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:56.160
  • So, what do you have to do to be cursed?
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:11:02.190
  • If you, "If thou will not hearken unto the voice
  • 00:11:03.290 --> 00:11:09.050
  • of the LORD to do all."
  • 00:11:09.060 --> 00:11:11.170
  • So, remember what James 2 and 10 says?
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:14.130
  • He says if you're guilty of breaking one commandment,
  • 00:11:14.140 --> 00:11:18.050
  • then you're gonna be guilty of breaking all of them.
  • 00:11:18.060 --> 00:11:21.230
  • So if you eat pork ribs.
  • 00:11:21.240 --> 00:11:27.230
  • That's what it was.
  • 00:11:28.240 --> 00:11:30.160
  • That's what it was.
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:31.160
  • Are you kidding me?
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:32.270
  • Look, the requirements to get blessed before the cross were
  • 00:11:32.280 --> 00:11:38.080
  • impossible, and the only way you got some blessing was
  • 00:11:38.090 --> 00:11:43.190
  • through the sacrificial system that he set up, and he said, "Go
  • 00:11:43.200 --> 00:11:47.030
  • get an animal, shed the blood of the animal.
  • 00:11:47.040 --> 00:11:49.040
  • I can't get rid of your sin conscious, but I can bless you
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:51.260
  • through the sacrifice.
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:54.050
  • That's the only way I can get a blessing to you, 'cause you
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:56.030
  • ain't gonna be able to do this."
  • 00:11:56.040 --> 00:11:58.210
  • Look at this.
  • 00:11:58.220 --> 00:12:00.130
  • Go to Deuteronomy 11:26 through 28.
  • 00:12:00.140 --> 00:12:04.170
  • Deuteronomy 11:26 through 28.
  • 00:12:04.180 --> 00:12:08.230
  • You've been taught, you've been taught Deuteronomy, and you
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:12.250
  • gotta keep all the commandments, and then God will bless you
  • 00:12:12.260 --> 00:12:16.040
  • and then, see, if you want to get blessed, you gotta do
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:18.110
  • what God tells you to do.
  • 00:12:18.120 --> 00:12:19.190
  • And the issue wasn't proportional blessing.
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:21.250
  • Do two things that God told you to do, he said all.
  • 00:12:21.260 --> 00:12:27.220
  • All right, look what he says.
  • 00:12:27.230 --> 00:12:28.220
  • He says same thing here.
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:29.290
  • "Behold I set before thee this day a blessing and a curse;" 27.
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:35.090
  • "A blessing, if you obey the commandment of the LORD your
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:37.210
  • God, which I command you this day," 28.
  • 00:12:37.220 --> 00:12:41.050
  • "And a curse, if you will not obey the commandments
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:44.050
  • of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I
  • 00:12:44.060 --> 00:12:46.280
  • command you this day, to go after other gods, which you have
  • 00:12:46.290 --> 00:12:49.240
  • not known."
  • 00:12:49.250 --> 00:12:51.110
  • So you see, under the law that's how you got blessed.
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:54.220
  • You have to obey all the commandments under the law.
  • 00:12:54.230 --> 00:12:57.150
  • If you don't obey, if you don't choose to obey, now you're gonna
  • 00:12:57.160 --> 00:13:00.220
  • get cursed.
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:02.070
  • Good lord, have mercy.
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:04.110
  • That was before the cross, alright.
  • 00:13:04.120 --> 00:13:06.180
  • But after the cross, Galatians chapter 3 verse 13 and 14, now,
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:12.150
  • that was the law that came from Moses, now what
  • 00:13:12.160 --> 00:13:15.200
  • about after the cross?
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:16.200
  • How do you get blessed after the cross?
  • 00:13:16.210 --> 00:13:18.230
  • Now, remember, the covenant of grace is not about your
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:22.130
  • performance, the covenant of grace is about Jesus and your
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:27.100
  • faith in him and his finished works.
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:29.290
  • Now, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law.
  • 00:13:30.000 --> 00:13:33.100
  • Check that out.
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:35.120
  • Say, "I've been redeemed from the curse of the law."
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:39.180
  • Now, so the preacher can no longer say if you don't tithe,
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:45.090
  • you're cursed with a curse.
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:48.060
  • How many have heard that?
  • 00:13:48.070 --> 00:13:49.180
  • If you don't bring your tithe, you're cursed with a curse.
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:52.140
  • Got-doggit, and we've been buying that.
  • 00:13:52.150 --> 00:13:55.040
  • If you're redeemed from the curse of the law,
  • 00:13:55.050 --> 00:13:57.290
  • and tithing in Malachi was a part of the law, then you're
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:14:02.170
  • not going to be cursed for not tithing.
  • 00:14:02.180 --> 00:14:05.230
  • You still get the blessing for tithing, but you won't get
  • 00:14:05.240 --> 00:14:09.190
  • cursed for not tithing.
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:14.250
  • Y'all remember my story?
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:15.250
  • I'll tell it again.
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:16.270
  • I don't tell stories one time, I tell them 100 times.
  • 00:14:16.280 --> 00:14:19.240
  • My dad was alive.
  • 00:14:19.250 --> 00:14:21.000
  • He said, "Boy, if you cross that street without looking both
  • 00:14:21.010 --> 00:14:22.260
  • ways, I'm going to whip you."
  • 00:14:22.270 --> 00:14:24.180
  • My dad's dead and gone, I look both ways because I was
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:28.260
  • under threat of punishment, but now that he's dead and gone,
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:33.020
  • mmm.
  • 00:14:33.030 --> 00:14:35.100
  • I don't have to live under the threat of punishment,
  • 00:14:35.110 --> 00:14:37.270
  • but it is still to my benefit when I'm crossing the street
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:41.030
  • to look both ways.
  • 00:14:41.040 --> 00:14:44.270
  • Likewise, don't you ever let somebody put the fear in you,
  • 00:14:44.280 --> 00:14:49.070
  • talkin' about you're gonna be cursed if you don't tithe.
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:51.230
  • You say, "No, I've been redeemed from the curse of not tithing,
  • 00:14:51.240 --> 00:14:55.240
  • but I'm still blessed 'cause I am.
  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:59.000
  • So, now I tithe, not because you've put fear in me, but I
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:03.060
  • tithe 'cause I love him, and I'm grateful to him and I want to,
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:08.180
  • not 'cause I got to."
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:11.150
  • 'Cause that ain't no good if you got to.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:15.120
  • I don't want you talkin' about, you know, here's a gift.
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:17.090
  • I had to give it to you.
  • 00:15:17.100 --> 00:15:18.130
  • You take that thing back.
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:19.140
  • I don't want your little nasty T-shirt.
  • 00:15:19.150 --> 00:15:20.280
  • You keep it.
  • 00:15:20.290 --> 00:15:25.120
  • All right, now watch this, "Christ has redeemed us
  • 00:15:25.130 --> 00:15:27.030
  • from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:29.200
  • written Cursed is everyone that hangeth on the tree."
  • 00:15:29.210 --> 00:15:33.020
  • Watch this, Verse 14.
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:35.030
  • "That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles--"
  • 00:15:35.040 --> 00:15:40.120
  • Somebody say that's me.
  • 00:15:40.130 --> 00:15:42.240
  • Might come on the Gentiles, how?
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:45.140
  • Through Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:45.150 --> 00:15:48.090
  • So you are blessed not because you obey the law that came
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:54.090
  • from Moses, but you are blessed because you have faith in Jesus
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:59.220
  • Christ and through Jesus's perfect obedience to fulfill all
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:04.250
  • of the law, you don't have to fulfill the law.
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:07.200
  • Jesus fulfilled the law.
  • 00:16:07.210 --> 00:16:09.090
  • I have faith in Jesus and my faith in Jesus is how I get
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:13.290
  • the blessing on me.
  • 00:16:14.000 --> 00:16:14.290
  • I'm blessed 'cause I believe Jesus.
  • 00:16:15.000 --> 00:16:19.080
  • "Well, you can believe Jesus, but you still got to do."
  • 00:16:19.090 --> 00:16:21.260
  • No, that's where you're tryin' to minimize the blood.
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:24.240
  • My faith in Jesus, period, is why I'm blessed.
  • 00:16:24.250 --> 00:16:29.060
  • You can't stop the blessing on me, because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:32.060
  • I believe Jesus when I'm up, when I'm down, I believe Jesus
  • 00:16:32.070 --> 00:16:35.050
  • when I'm doin' right, or even when I do wrong I still believe
  • 00:16:35.060 --> 00:16:38.080
  • Jesus, and the blessing comes on me.
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:40.220
  • And then one day you look at me, and I'm not doin' what I used
  • 00:16:40.230 --> 00:16:43.230
  • to do, but the behavior is trying to rob me of my identity.
  • 00:16:43.240 --> 00:16:48.200
  • I believe Jesus, I am a Christian, I am
  • 00:16:48.210 --> 00:16:51.140
  • the righteousness of God, no matter what I do, I am not how I
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:55.070
  • behave.
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:16:56.070
  • I am who Jesus says I am, and I am blessed
  • 00:16:56.080 --> 00:17:00.070
  • because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:17:00.080 --> 00:17:06.000
  • Somebody shout, "I believe!"
  • 00:17:06.010 --> 00:17:09.010
  • You're blessed.
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:10.060
  • That's what Abraham did before the law, before the law
  • 00:17:10.070 --> 00:17:14.050
  • in Genesis, I believe it's 15, before the law, the Bible says
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:18.230
  • Abraham believed God, and it was accounted unto him
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:24.240
  • for righteousness' sake.
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:27.080
  • So what did Abraham do in order to be made righteous?
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:30.240
  • What did he do?
  • 00:17:30.250 --> 00:17:31.240
  • Did he go to church?
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:33.040
  • Did he do--what goody-goody thing?
  • 00:17:33.050 --> 00:17:34.220
  • Give me a list of goody-goody things Abraham did.
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:37.020
  • If you'll give me list of goody-goody thing Abraham
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:38.280
  • did, I'll do a whole hour teaching on all that terrible
  • 00:17:38.290 --> 00:17:41.190
  • stuff Abraham did.
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:42.250
  • In fact, when God decides to treat you as righteous, he
  • 00:17:42.260 --> 00:17:45.180
  • will not allow your behavior to cause him to treat you other
  • 00:17:45.190 --> 00:17:49.180
  • than righteous.
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:50.220
  • He did that with Abraham, and Abraham went and acted
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:53.160
  • like a little punk.
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:54.160
  • And excuse me, let me calm down.
  • 00:17:54.170 --> 00:17:57.050
  • And don't take that out of my message.
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:17:58.270
  • Broadcast what I just said like a little punk.
  • 00:17:58.280 --> 00:18:04.290
  • And they took his wife, and he said, "Lie for me.
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:08.050
  • Just tell 'em you my sister."
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:10.230
  • And she was, she was his half sister, but that doesn't mean
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:14.020
  • you tell a half lie.
  • 00:18:14.030 --> 00:18:17.080
  • And they took her and was planning on doing some stuff,
  • 00:18:17.090 --> 00:18:20.130
  • and he up there allowing it to happen, wouldn't stand
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:22.230
  • up for his wife.
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:24.050
  • What kind of man is that?
  • 00:18:24.060 --> 00:18:27.170
  • And check out what he gets for acting like a weak punk.
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:32.260
  • Look at the increase this guy gets.
  • 00:18:32.270 --> 00:18:36.010
  • He gets silver and gold and cattle and servants.
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:40.200
  • It's like where did all that blessing come from?
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:43.050
  • How he gonna act like that and still get blessed?
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:47.110
  • God says, "Because I declared him righteous, and I refuse
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:52.280
  • to not treat him as a righteous man.
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:55.120
  • Even though his behavior is unrighteous, I'm gonna treat him
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:58.170
  • righteous, because this is not about Abraham,
  • 00:18:58.180 --> 00:19:01.130
  • it is about my word."
  • 00:19:01.140 --> 00:19:06.140
  • I'm blessed because of Jesus.
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:13.060
  • I said I'm blessed because of Jesus.
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:15.100
  • So when you get that promotion sometime next week, don't you go
  • 00:19:15.110 --> 00:19:18.010
  • boasting about what you did.
  • 00:19:18.020 --> 00:19:21.070
  • Oh, y'all don't hear me.
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:22.270
  • When you got some debt that's supernaturally cancelled, don't
  • 00:19:22.280 --> 00:19:25.110
  • come talkin' about your your financial strategies.
  • 00:19:25.120 --> 00:19:27.130
  • No, I don't want to hear all that, 'cause it wasn't nobody
  • 00:19:27.140 --> 00:19:29.230
  • but God, hallelujah.
  • 00:19:29.240 --> 00:19:31.160
  • The goodness of the Lord will change a man's mind, and I
  • 00:19:31.170 --> 00:19:35.230
  • prophesy goodness raining down like the rain we're hearing
  • 00:19:35.240 --> 00:19:38.210
  • this morning.
  • 00:19:38.220 --> 00:19:39.270
  • I prophesy goodness, not because of what you did, not because
  • 00:19:39.280 --> 00:19:43.080
  • of your performance, but because of him, hallelujah.
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:46.090
  • Goodness, goodness, goodness, goodness.
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:50.290
  • You be careful how you try to take advantage
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:54.090
  • of the goodness of God.
  • 00:19:54.100 --> 00:19:57.040
  • "Well, what do you say when people ask ya?"
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:59.070
  • Here's what you say, "Oh, this is the Lord's doing."
  • 00:19:59.080 --> 00:20:04.070
  • It's just marvelous in my eyes, but look, don't get it twisted,
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:07.240
  • he gets the glory.
  • 00:20:07.250 --> 00:20:09.150
  • He gets the honor.
  • 00:20:09.160 --> 00:20:10.260
  • I can't take no glory.
  • 00:20:10.270 --> 00:20:12.070
  • See, when you're operating by the law and you had
  • 00:20:12.080 --> 00:20:14.220
  • to perform to get it to happen, then you can boast, but when
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:18.230
  • you're operating under grace, there is no boasting, because
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:21.290
  • you know that it was done before you ever existed,
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:24.290
  • praise God.
  • 00:20:25.000 --> 00:20:26.090
  • He was already--he'd already made his mind up, "I'm going
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:28.220
  • to do you good and make you happy."
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:30.200
  • Turn to your neighbor and say, "God's going to do you good
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:32.180
  • and make you happy."
  • 00:20:32.190 --> 00:20:38.190
  • That's what happened after the cross.
  • 00:20:41.210 --> 00:20:45.090
  • Now, I promise you, you will go turn on some Christian
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:47.180
  • television, and you're going to hear somebody talk to you
  • 00:20:47.190 --> 00:20:49.230
  • about, "If you want God to do this, you're gonna
  • 00:20:49.240 --> 00:20:52.050
  • have to do that.
  • 00:20:52.060 --> 00:20:53.150
  • If you want God to bless you, now if you want him to bless
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:55.100
  • you, you gotta do these 10 things."
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:57.090
  • And that is the pattern of the law that came from Moses.
  • 00:20:57.100 --> 00:21:02.060
  • "Well, what did you do to get blessed?"
  • 00:21:02.070 --> 00:21:03.210
  • I believe Jesus.
  • 00:21:03.220 --> 00:21:05.070
  • I believe I'm already healed, I believe I'm already prosperous,
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:08.130
  • I believe I'm already sound, I believe I already operate
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:11.030
  • in favor.
  • 00:21:11.040 --> 00:21:12.080
  • That's why you don't sweat the small stuff.
  • 00:21:12.090 --> 00:21:14.130
  • Quit sweating the small stuff, because Jesus has already
  • 00:21:14.140 --> 00:21:17.000
  • handled it, praise God.
  • 00:21:17.010 --> 00:21:18.130
  • Quit sweating it, quit complaining.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.040
  • He's already done it, praise God.
  • 00:21:20.050 --> 00:21:21.220
  • Every time something happens, that's when you just loose your
  • 00:21:21.230 --> 00:21:24.280
  • faith and say, "Oh, that crazy thing happened, but thank God
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:27.210
  • Jesus has already handled it."
  • 00:21:27.220 --> 00:21:29.120
  • "Oh, God, I need some money there, but thank God he's my
  • 00:21:29.130 --> 00:21:32.120
  • provider.
  • 00:21:32.130 --> 00:21:33.180
  • Oh, this is happening in my marriage, but thank God he's
  • 00:21:33.190 --> 00:21:36.030
  • the restorer of my marriage."
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:39.250
  • That's when you start releasing your faith.
  • 00:21:39.260 --> 00:21:41.280
  • The greatest faith you can have is learning how to rest
  • 00:21:41.290 --> 00:21:44.140
  • in the finished works of Jesus, learning how to rest in what
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:47.150
  • he's already done.
  • 00:21:47.160 --> 00:21:51.000
  • That's what we do under the covenant of grace.
  • 00:21:51.010 --> 00:21:53.060
  • That's what we do under the covenant of grace.
  • 00:21:53.070 --> 00:21:56.050
  • That's what we do, and we have been a part of churches that's
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:59.220
  • made it--that's literally created what I call
  • 00:21:59.230 --> 00:22:05.180
  • performance-based Christianity.
  • 00:22:05.190 --> 00:22:09.090
  • Christianity that's based completely on what you do
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:15.020
  • instead of a Christianity that's based on faith in what Jesus has
  • 00:22:15.030 --> 00:22:19.200
  • already done.
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:24.030
  • Y'all gettin' this?
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:27.190
  • How many you know the whole world needs to hear this?
  • 00:22:27.200 --> 00:22:31.120
  • You know where you were, you know where you are, and you
  • 00:22:31.130 --> 00:22:36.160
  • know, you've gotta train yourself.
  • 00:22:36.170 --> 00:22:38.060
  • You gotta renew your mind, 'cause it's easy to just slip
  • 00:22:38.070 --> 00:22:41.000
  • back and, I gotta do somethin.'
  • 00:22:41.010 --> 00:22:43.060
  • I gotta do somethin.'
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:45.100
  • Bad thing happened, immediately, I gotta do something instead
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:49.020
  • of resting and saying Jesus has already done it.
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:51.060
  • I have faith in you.
  • 00:22:51.070 --> 00:22:52.140
  • And you spend your days praising God and thanking him and looking
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:55.230
  • at his word and looking at Jesus, Oh, God, I trust you.
  • 00:22:55.240 --> 00:22:58.210
  • I trust it's already been done.
  • 00:22:58.220 --> 00:22:59.280
  • See, you think that's the weak part.
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:01.140
  • You have convinced--your thinkin' says I gotta do
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:03.200
  • somethin,' I gotta do somethin', Okay, so maybe if I fast for 40
  • 00:23:03.210 --> 00:23:07.090
  • days, it'll rectify this.
  • 00:23:07.100 --> 00:23:08.210
  • No, no, ain't nothin' wrong with fasting, but there's
  • 00:23:08.220 --> 00:23:10.100
  • somethin' wrong with fasting trying to get God to do what he
  • 00:23:10.110 --> 00:23:14.230
  • has already done.
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:20.240
  • Fasting should be done to reposition you, not
  • 00:23:22.020 --> 00:23:27.130
  • to reposition God.
  • 00:23:27.140 --> 00:23:32.020
  • Fasting should be done to deal with your unbelief, not God's
  • 00:23:32.030 --> 00:23:37.210
  • lack of work.
  • 00:23:37.220 --> 00:23:40.170
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:23:40.180 --> 00:23:42.080
  • Amen?
  • 00:23:42.090 --> 00:23:43.180
  • If you got that, say amen.
  • 00:23:43.190 --> 00:23:45.210
  • All right, let's go to the next one.
  • 00:23:45.220 --> 00:23:47.150
  • What are the requirements for forgiveness?
  • 00:23:47.160 --> 00:23:50.170
  • What are the requirements for forgiveness?
  • 00:23:50.180 --> 00:23:53.150
  • We have been taught that if you want God to forgive you, you
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:58.210
  • better forgive first, and if you don't forgive first, then God
  • 00:23:58.220 --> 00:24:03.030
  • can't forgive you.
  • 00:24:03.040 --> 00:24:05.260
  • That is true under the Old Covenant.
  • 00:24:05.270 --> 00:24:09.200
  • "Oh, but Brother Dollar, that's in the book of Matthew."
  • 00:24:09.210 --> 00:24:12.070
  • Oh, now here's another deal.
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:14.260
  • Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, that was Jesus operating as
  • 00:24:14.270 --> 00:24:20.270
  • a prophet under the Old Covenant, fulfilling the law
  • 00:24:23.150 --> 00:24:29.090
  • and preparing the way of grace.
  • 00:24:29.100 --> 00:24:32.130
  • So you better be careful about reading the red, 'cause
  • 00:24:32.140 --> 00:24:38.040
  • you ain't gonna like all that red, especially where it says,
  • 00:24:38.050 --> 00:24:40.190
  • If your hands offend you, cut it off.
  • 00:24:40.200 --> 00:24:43.200
  • If your eyes offend you, pluck it out.
  • 00:24:43.210 --> 00:24:45.140
  • That's in the red.
  • 00:24:45.150 --> 00:24:51.030
  • No, you gotta recognize that Jesus is--the reason why Jesus
  • 00:24:51.040 --> 00:24:56.090
  • fasted like he fasted and didn't eat what he ate, he was the one
  • 00:24:56.100 --> 00:25:02.060
  • fulfilling the requirements of the law, and if you read
  • 00:25:02.070 --> 00:25:07.240
  • and don't rightly divide it, you'll now say, "Jesus did it,
  • 00:25:07.250 --> 00:25:11.150
  • so I'm gonna do it, 'cause you don't recognize that what Jesus
  • 00:25:11.160 --> 00:25:14.230
  • was doing was fulfilling the law that you couldn't fulfill."
  • 00:25:14.240 --> 00:25:20.240
  • announcer: How do you see the Christian life?
  • 00:25:20.270 --> 00:25:23.010
  • Is it a performance-driven life, or is it a life depending

  • on Jesus.
