  • 00:00:03.130 --> 00:00:05.050
  • Creflo Dollar: You can't stop the blessing on me,
  • 00:00:05.060 --> 00:00:06.250
  • because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:00:06.260 --> 00:00:08.050
  • I believe Jesus when I'm up, when I'm down,
  • 00:00:08.060 --> 00:00:10.040
  • I believe Jesus when I'm doing right
  • 00:00:10.050 --> 00:00:11.260
  • or even when I do wrong I still believe Jesus,
  • 00:00:11.270 --> 00:00:15.000
  • and the blessing comes on me and then one day you look at me
  • 00:00:15.010 --> 00:00:18.080
  • and I'm not doin' what I used to do, but the behavior is
  • 00:00:18.090 --> 00:00:22.040
  • trying to rob me of my identity.
  • 00:00:22.050 --> 00:00:24.170
  • I believe Jesus, I am a Christian, I am
  • 00:00:24.180 --> 00:00:27.120
  • the righteousness of God.
  • 00:00:27.130 --> 00:00:28.230
  • No matter what I do, I am not how I behave, I am who Jesus
  • 00:00:28.240 --> 00:00:33.090
  • says I am, and I am blessed because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:00:33.100 --> 00:00:39.090
  • announcer: Calling all men.
  • 00:00:39.100 --> 00:00:41.000
  • Creflo: It's time for you to find out your
  • 00:00:41.010 --> 00:00:42.150
  • place in the body of Christ.
  • 00:00:42.160 --> 00:00:43.250
  • Gary Taylor: You are not gonna be satisfied until you do
  • 00:00:43.260 --> 00:00:48.290
  • what he commissioned you to do.
  • 00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:51.170
  • Michael T. Smith: I wanted to do right but couldn't,
  • 00:00:51.180 --> 00:00:52.270
  • but now the Spirit of God lives in me,
  • 00:00:52.280 --> 00:00:54.150
  • and he gives me power to do what I could not do on my own.
  • 00:00:54.160 --> 00:00:57.080
  • Ken Terry: I expect to get understanding.
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:00:59.070
  • I expect for me to grow in my grace.
  • 00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:01.220
  • Kenneth Fuller: So when things come our way, when things
  • 00:01:01.230 --> 00:01:03.220
  • come up against us, we know that we're comin' through.
  • 00:01:03.230 --> 00:01:07.050
  • announcer: See you there.
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:09.010
  • This is your world
  • 00:01:09.020 --> 00:01:11.210
  • so let's vow to make it a better place
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:16.130
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:16.140 --> 00:01:21.200
  • your love is here to stay
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:24.160
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:28.080
  • Oh, let his love shine bright in you
  • 00:01:28.090 --> 00:01:32.190
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace
  • 00:01:32.200 --> 00:01:35.230
  • so we embrace your love today
  • 00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:39.080
  • We are changed
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:42.240
  • Creflo: Colossians 2 verse 8, I'd like to look at this
  • 00:01:43.110 --> 00:01:48.050
  • out of the NIV, and then the Amplified,
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:52.090
  • Colossians 2 and 8.
  • 00:01:52.100 --> 00:01:53.290
  • Now, here's what Colossians is gonna warn us of now.
  • 00:01:54.000 --> 00:01:57.140
  • He's gonna warn us of what's gonna happen besides this.
  • 00:01:57.150 --> 00:02:01.110
  • Let's start in the NIV first, Colossians 2:8, NIV, and then
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:06.060
  • the Amplified.
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:08.180
  • Now, he says see to it that no one takes you captive
  • 00:02:08.190 --> 00:02:14.190
  • through hollow and deceptive philosophy which depends
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:20.220
  • on human tradition and the elemental spiritual
  • 00:02:20.230 --> 00:02:25.060
  • forces of this world rather than on Christ.
  • 00:02:25.070 --> 00:02:31.050
  • A lot of philosophies--
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:33.040
  • Have you ever heard people?
  • 00:02:33.050 --> 00:02:34.090
  • They they come up with these great inspirational quotes
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:39.000
  • and philosophies, and it's not even based on Christ.
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:44.030
  • It's not based on Christ.
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:45.160
  • You know, God's got to take you through suffering before he can
  • 00:02:45.170 --> 00:02:48.270
  • take you to glory.
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:50.210
  • Eh, most of that's caused by us because we won't believe him.
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:56.100
  • Philosophies that are not even based on Christ.
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:02:58.180
  • Now, look at the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:01.090
  • Look at the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:02.250
  • "See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:07.260
  • yourself captive by his so-called philosophy
  • 00:03:07.270 --> 00:03:11.210
  • and intellectualism and vain deceit, (idle fancies, and plain
  • 00:03:11.220 --> 00:03:16.200
  • nonsense), following human tradition, (men's ideas
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:21.000
  • of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude
  • 00:03:21.010 --> 00:03:25.110
  • notions following the rudimentary
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:28.100
  • and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding
  • 00:03:28.110 --> 00:03:32.200
  • the teachings of Christ (the Messiah)."
  • 00:03:32.210 --> 00:03:37.150
  • A Christian life that's based on philosophy and not based
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:41.020
  • on the teachings of Christ, he said, just plain nonsense.
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:45.060
  • It's just plain nonsense, and we got plain nonsense in the church
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:48.260
  • today.
  • 00:03:48.270 --> 00:03:50.020
  • To tell the woman that you gotta wear a dress in order to be
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:52.150
  • holy, that's not from the teachings of Christ,
  • 00:03:52.160 --> 00:03:56.280
  • that's something--that's nonsense to tell her she can't
  • 00:03:56.290 --> 00:04:00.180
  • wear makeup or she's a jezebel, that's just plain nonsense.
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:06.140
  • To tell you that, you know, every time you sin you got to go
  • 00:04:06.150 --> 00:04:11.020
  • get baptized again, got-dog, you might as well stay by the water.
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:17.030
  • That's not teachings based on Christ, it's just plain
  • 00:04:17.160 --> 00:04:22.180
  • nonsense.
  • 00:04:22.190 --> 00:04:24.240
  • It's plain nonsense to tell people they're going to go
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:26.230
  • to hell, if they sin is nonsense.
  • 00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:31.250
  • Let me tell ya something, if anybody in this church goes
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:36.010
  • to hell for sinning, everybody in here gonna go to hell
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:39.200
  • for sinning.
  • 00:04:39.210 --> 00:04:43.210
  • Some of y'all are like, what?
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:45.060
  • Surely, you don't think that you've perfected that.
  • 00:04:45.070 --> 00:04:50.090
  • "Well, I ain't never committed adultery."
  • 00:04:50.100 --> 00:04:52.230
  • "Oh! You ain't never committed adultery,
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:55.140
  • but last night God saw you, you had a bad attitude
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:05:00.040
  • with that waitress and refused to leave a tip."
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:03.290
  • That Ain't Christ's light.
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:05.230
  • You shot a bird at the policeman 'cause he wouldn't let you go.
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:10.270
  • Come on, man.
  • 00:05:10.280 --> 00:05:12.250
  • Come on, man.
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:14.070
  • We all need a savior.
  • 00:05:14.080 --> 00:05:16.150
  • I said we all need a savior.
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:19.100
  • Alright, now, does everybody understand what I just said?
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:25.100
  • Now, what I'm gonna do--and you don't have time to shout,
  • 00:05:25.250 --> 00:05:29.080
  • because you're gonna have to see if I'm telling you the truth.
  • 00:05:29.090 --> 00:05:32.000
  • I'm going to take you through the scripture,
  • 00:05:32.010 --> 00:05:34.200
  • scripture, scripture, scripture, scripture, scripture.
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:37.200
  • We're gonna look at the truth before the cross versus
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:43.010
  • the truth after the cross.
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:46.010
  • How is it that Jesus can die on the cross and shed his blood
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:49.020
  • and nothing changed?
  • 00:05:49.030 --> 00:05:51.270
  • And we are living life--when you live life under the law,
  • 00:05:51.280 --> 00:05:55.030
  • you're living as if Jesus accomplished nothing
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:58.100
  • on the cross.
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:06:01.200
  • Mm-hmm.
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:03.110
  • If you still think that you're going to hell because you missed
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:06.180
  • the mark, then why in the world did he die on the cross?
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:11.140
  • If you still think that God made you sick 'cause he tryin'
  • 00:06:11.150 --> 00:06:13.260
  • to teach you something, then why did he provide healing
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:16.180
  • on the cross?
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:18.210
  • If you're still carrying your life as if you're living
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:22.120
  • under the law, then what he did on the cross was an absolute
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:27.150
  • waste of time if you refuse to make the adjustments
  • 00:06:27.160 --> 00:06:33.060
  • from the law to grace.
  • 00:06:33.070 --> 00:06:35.200
  • Are you ready?
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:36.290
  • Alright, first thing we want to look at is the contrast
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:39.070
  • between the Old and the New Testament.
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:41.290
  • I kinda said a lot of that, so I'm gonna
  • 00:06:42.000 --> 00:06:43.170
  • do this pretty quickly.
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:45.090
  • Contrast between the Old and the New Testament.
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:47.050
  • Now, before the cross, the Old Covenant existed,
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:52.110
  • before the cross, the covenant of the law, the 10 Commandments
  • 00:06:52.120 --> 00:06:55.020
  • all existed before the cross, the Old Covenant was
  • 00:06:55.030 --> 00:07:00.190
  • an agreement between God and Jewish people.
  • 00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:05.020
  • The Old Covenant was a performance-based covenant.
  • 00:07:05.030 --> 00:07:07.200
  • If you, if you, if you, the covenant of the law was
  • 00:07:07.210 --> 00:07:11.080
  • a performance-based covenant, it was based on what you do, if you
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:14.250
  • do, then God do.
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:16.190
  • That was the covenant before the cross.
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:18.200
  • If you do, then God do.
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:20.060
  • If you good, then God will be good.
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:22.200
  • If you bad, God be bad.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:25.010
  • Whatever you do, God do.
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:27.030
  • It's a performance-based covenant.
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:29.190
  • Before the cross the Old Covenant was there.
  • 00:07:29.200 --> 00:07:32.060
  • It was a conditional covenant.
  • 00:07:32.070 --> 00:07:35.020
  • It was a conditional covenant.
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:36.160
  • The condition was God would bless you on the condition that
  • 00:07:36.170 --> 00:07:41.160
  • you did what was right to earn the blessing.
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:45.080
  • It was a covenant based on what you do.
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:49.200
  • It was a self-righteous covenant, that's what it was.
  • 00:07:49.210 --> 00:07:54.190
  • Now, after the cross, the New Covenant existed.
  • 00:07:54.200 --> 00:07:59.140
  • It was an agreement between God and Jesus.
  • 00:07:59.150 --> 00:08:03.210
  • Before the cross, the agreement was between God
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:05.270
  • and Jewish people.
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:08.010
  • After the cross, it was based on faith in the finished works
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:12.020
  • of Jesus, not based on your works.
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:16.000
  • After the cross, it was an unconditional covenant.
  • 00:08:16.010 --> 00:08:21.140
  • That unconditional covenant was based on what Jesus has already
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:25.010
  • done and your faith in what Jesus has done.
  • 00:08:25.020 --> 00:08:29.110
  • And after the cross, this was righteousness as a gift, and it
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:34.270
  • wasn't self-righteousness, something you earn to do, okay?
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:38.250
  • So this is the basis of what we're getting ready to do.
  • 00:08:38.260 --> 00:08:43.010
  • Now, let's take this first subject here.
  • 00:08:43.020 --> 00:08:46.260
  • What are the requirements to be blessed?
  • 00:08:46.270 --> 00:08:49.180
  • What does a Christian have to do to be blessed?
  • 00:08:49.190 --> 00:08:53.000
  • All right, before the cross, here's what you had to do to be
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:56.100
  • blessed.
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:57.100
  • Deuteronomy 28 verses 1 through 3 and 15.
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:09:01.100
  • What does a person have to do to be blessed?
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:07.040
  • Now, you're gonna find out that some of the things you heard
  • 00:09:07.050 --> 00:09:09.170
  • came from before the cross.
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:12.100
  • Alright, now look at what it says here in Deuteronomy 28
  • 00:09:12.110 --> 00:09:17.290
  • verses 1 through 3 and 15, "And it shall come to pass, if thou
  • 00:09:18.000 --> 00:09:22.280
  • shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:26.000
  • to observe to do all his commandments which I command
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:28.170
  • thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:31.070
  • above all nations of the earth:" verse 2, "And all these
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:35.040
  • blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee," "condition,
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:38.100
  • if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God."
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:42.060
  • Question: According to what we just read, what is
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:45.170
  • the requirement for you to get the blessing?
  • 00:09:45.180 --> 00:09:50.090
  • You got to?
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:52.270
  • You got to do or obey how many of the commandments?
  • 00:09:52.280 --> 00:09:58.280
  • All commandments, and if you obey all the commandments,
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:03.120
  • that's 613, then you'll be blessed, alright?
  • 00:10:03.130 --> 00:10:08.230
  • Verse three, "Blessed shalt thou be in the city and blessed shalt
  • 00:10:08.240 --> 00:10:12.180
  • thou be in the field," and he announces the blessing on you,
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:16.190
  • and we call this the blessing, but we do not tell people this
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:21.030
  • is a conditional blessing.
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:23.020
  • You are blessed only if you can obey all 613 commandments.
  • 00:10:23.030 --> 00:10:29.030
  • That was before Christ.
  • 00:10:32.150 --> 00:10:33.210
  • And look at verse 15 real quick, verse 15, "But it shall come
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:39.150
  • to pass if thou," performance-based, "if thou will
  • 00:10:39.160 --> 00:10:42.200
  • not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God to observe
  • 00:10:42.210 --> 00:10:45.160
  • to do all all his commandments and his all his statutes which I
  • 00:10:45.170 --> 00:10:50.130
  • command thee this day; that all these curses shall come
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:53.150
  • upon thee and overtake thee."
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:55.120
  • Oh!
  • 00:10:55.130 --> 00:10:56.120
  • So, what do you have to do to be cursed?
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:11:02.150
  • If you, "If thou will not hearken unto the voice
  • 00:11:03.250 --> 00:11:09.010
  • of the LORD to do all."
  • 00:11:09.020 --> 00:11:11.130
  • So, remember what James 2 and 10 says?
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:14.090
  • He says if you're guilty of breaking one commandment,
  • 00:11:14.100 --> 00:11:18.010
  • then you're gonna be guilty of breaking all of them.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:21.190
  • So if you eat pork ribs.
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:27.190
  • That's what it was.
  • 00:11:28.200 --> 00:11:30.120
  • That's what it was.
  • 00:11:30.130 --> 00:11:31.120
  • Are you kidding me?
  • 00:11:31.130 --> 00:11:32.230
  • Look, the requirements to get blessed before the cross were
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:38.040
  • impossible, and the only way you got some blessing was
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:43.150
  • through the sacrificial system that he set up, and he said, "Go
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:46.290
  • get an animal, shed the blood of the animal.
  • 00:11:47.000 --> 00:11:49.000
  • I can't get rid of your sin conscious, but I can bless you
  • 00:11:49.010 --> 00:11:51.220
  • through the sacrifice.
  • 00:11:51.230 --> 00:11:54.010
  • That's the only way I can get a blessing to you, 'cause you
  • 00:11:54.020 --> 00:11:55.290
  • ain't gonna be able to do this."
  • 00:11:56.000 --> 00:11:58.170
  • Look at this.
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:12:00.090
  • Go to Deuteronomy 11:26 through 28.
  • 00:12:00.100 --> 00:12:04.130
  • Deuteronomy 11:26 through 28.
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:08.190
  • You've been taught, you've been taught Deuteronomy, and you
  • 00:12:08.200 --> 00:12:12.210
  • gotta keep all the commandments, and then God will bless you
  • 00:12:12.220 --> 00:12:16.000
  • and then, see, if you want to get blessed, you gotta do
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:18.070
  • what God tells you to do.
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:19.150
  • And the issue wasn't proportional blessing.
  • 00:12:19.160 --> 00:12:21.210
  • Do two things that God told you to do, he said all.
  • 00:12:21.220 --> 00:12:27.180
  • All right, look what he says.
  • 00:12:27.190 --> 00:12:28.180
  • He says same thing here.
  • 00:12:28.190 --> 00:12:29.250
  • "Behold I set before thee this day a blessing and a curse;" 27.
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:35.050
  • "A blessing, if you obey the commandment of the LORD your
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:37.170
  • God, which I command you this day," 28.
  • 00:12:37.180 --> 00:12:41.010
  • "And a curse, if you will not obey the commandments
  • 00:12:41.020 --> 00:12:44.010
  • of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I
  • 00:12:44.020 --> 00:12:46.240
  • command you this day, to go after other gods, which you have
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:49.200
  • not known."
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:51.070
  • So you see, under the law that's how you got blessed.
  • 00:12:51.080 --> 00:12:54.180
  • You have to obey all the commandments under the law.
  • 00:12:54.190 --> 00:12:57.110
  • If you don't obey, if you don't choose to obey, now you're gonna
  • 00:12:57.120 --> 00:13:00.180
  • get cursed.
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:02.030
  • Good lord, have mercy.
  • 00:13:02.040 --> 00:13:04.070
  • That was before the cross, alright.
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:06.140
  • But after the cross, Galatians chapter 3 verse 13 and 14, now,
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:12.110
  • that was the law that came from Moses, now what
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:15.160
  • about after the cross?
  • 00:13:15.170 --> 00:13:16.160
  • How do you get blessed after the cross?
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:18.190
  • Now, remember, the covenant of grace is not about your
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:22.090
  • performance, the covenant of grace is about Jesus and your
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:27.060
  • faith in him and his finished works.
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:29.250
  • Now, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law.
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:33.060
  • Check that out.
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:35.080
  • Say, "I've been redeemed from the curse of the law."
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:39.140
  • Now, so the preacher can no longer say if you don't tithe,
  • 00:13:39.150 --> 00:13:45.050
  • you're cursed with a curse.
  • 00:13:45.060 --> 00:13:48.020
  • How many have heard that?
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:49.140
  • If you don't bring your tithe, you're cursed with a curse.
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:52.100
  • Got-doggit, and we've been buying that.
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:55.000
  • If you're redeemed from the curse of the law,
  • 00:13:55.010 --> 00:13:57.250
  • and tithing in Malachi was a part of the law, then you're
  • 00:13:57.260 --> 00:14:02.130
  • not going to be cursed for not tithing.
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:05.190
  • You still get the blessing for tithing, but you won't get
  • 00:14:05.200 --> 00:14:09.150
  • cursed for not tithing.
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:14.210
  • Y'all remember my story?
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:15.210
  • I'll tell it again.
  • 00:14:15.220 --> 00:14:16.230
  • I don't tell stories one time, I tell them 100 times.
  • 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:19.200
  • My dad was alive.
  • 00:14:19.210 --> 00:14:20.260
  • He said, "Boy, if you cross that street without looking both
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:22.220
  • ways, I'm going to whip you."
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:24.140
  • My dad's dead and gone, I look both ways because I was
  • 00:14:24.150 --> 00:14:28.220
  • under threat of punishment, but now that he's dead and gone,
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:32.280
  • mmm.
  • 00:14:32.290 --> 00:14:35.060
  • I don't have to live under the threat of punishment,
  • 00:14:35.070 --> 00:14:37.230
  • but it is still to my benefit when I'm crossing the street
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:40.290
  • to look both ways.
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:44.230
  • Likewise, don't you ever let somebody put the fear in you,
  • 00:14:44.240 --> 00:14:49.030
  • talkin' about you're gonna be cursed if you don't tithe.
  • 00:14:49.040 --> 00:14:51.190
  • You say, "No, I've been redeemed from the curse of not tithing,
  • 00:14:51.200 --> 00:14:55.200
  • but I'm still blessed 'cause I am.
  • 00:14:55.210 --> 00:14:58.260
  • So, now I tithe, not because you've put fear in me, but I
  • 00:14:58.270 --> 00:15:03.020
  • tithe 'cause I love him, and I'm grateful to him and I want to,
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:08.140
  • not 'cause I got to."
  • 00:15:08.150 --> 00:15:11.110
  • 'Cause that ain't no good if you got to.
  • 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:15.080
  • I don't want you talkin' about, you know, here's a gift.
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:17.050
  • I had to give it to you.
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:18.090
  • You take that thing back.
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:19.100
  • I don't want your little nasty T-shirt.
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:20.240
  • You keep it.
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:25.080
  • All right, now watch this, "Christ has redeemed us
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:26.290
  • from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:29.160
  • written Cursed is everyone that hangeth on the tree."
  • 00:15:29.170 --> 00:15:32.280
  • Watch this, Verse 14.
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:34.290
  • "That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles--"
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:40.080
  • Somebody say that's me.
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:42.200
  • Might come on the Gentiles, how?
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:45.100
  • Through Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:48.050
  • So you are blessed not because you obey the law that came
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:54.050
  • from Moses, but you are blessed because you have faith in Jesus
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:59.180
  • Christ and through Jesus's perfect obedience to fulfill all
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:04.210
  • of the law, you don't have to fulfill the law.
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:07.160
  • Jesus fulfilled the law.
  • 00:16:07.170 --> 00:16:09.050
  • I have faith in Jesus and my faith in Jesus is how I get
  • 00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:13.250
  • the blessing on me.
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:14.250
  • I'm blessed 'cause I believe Jesus.
  • 00:16:14.260 --> 00:16:19.040
  • "Well, you can believe Jesus, but you still got to do."
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:21.220
  • No, that's where you're tryin' to minimize the blood.
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:24.200
  • My faith in Jesus, period, is why I'm blessed.
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:29.020
  • You can't stop the blessing on me, because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:16:29.030 --> 00:16:32.020
  • I believe Jesus when I'm up, when I'm down, I believe Jesus
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:35.010
  • when I'm doin' right, or even when I do wrong I still believe
  • 00:16:35.020 --> 00:16:38.040
  • Jesus, and the blessing comes on me.
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:40.180
  • And then one day you look at me, and I'm not doin' what I used
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:43.190
  • to do, but the behavior is trying to rob me of my identity.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:48.160
  • I believe Jesus, I am a Christian, I am
  • 00:16:48.170 --> 00:16:51.100
  • the righteousness of God, no matter what I do, I am not how I
  • 00:16:51.110 --> 00:16:55.030
  • behave.
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:56.030
  • I am who Jesus says I am, and I am blessed
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:17:00.030
  • because I believe Jesus.
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:05.260
  • Somebody shout, "I believe!"
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:08.270
  • You're blessed.
  • 00:17:08.280 --> 00:17:10.020
  • That's what Abraham did before the law, before the law
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:14.010
  • in Genesis, I believe it's 15, before the law, the Bible says
  • 00:17:14.020 --> 00:17:18.190
  • Abraham believed God, and it was accounted unto him
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:24.200
  • for righteousness' sake.
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:27.040
  • So what did Abraham do in order to be made righteous?
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:30.200
  • What did he do?
  • 00:17:30.210 --> 00:17:31.200
  • Did he go to church?
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:33.000
  • Did he do--what goody-goody thing?
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:34.180
  • Give me a list of goody-goody things Abraham did.
  • 00:17:34.190 --> 00:17:36.280
  • If you'll give me list of goody-goody thing Abraham
  • 00:17:36.290 --> 00:17:38.240
  • did, I'll do a whole hour teaching on all that terrible
  • 00:17:38.250 --> 00:17:41.150
  • stuff Abraham did.
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:42.210
  • In fact, when God decides to treat you as righteous, he
  • 00:17:42.220 --> 00:17:45.140
  • will not allow your behavior to cause him to treat you other
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:49.140
  • than righteous.
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:50.180
  • He did that with Abraham, and Abraham went and acted
  • 00:17:50.190 --> 00:17:53.120
  • like a little punk.
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:54.120
  • And excuse me, let me calm down.
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:57.010
  • And don't take that out of my message.
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:58.230
  • Broadcast what I just said like a little punk.
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:18:04.250
  • And they took his wife, and he said, "Lie for me.
  • 00:18:05.140 --> 00:18:08.010
  • Just tell 'em you my sister."
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:10.190
  • And she was, she was his half sister, but that doesn't mean
  • 00:18:10.200 --> 00:18:13.280
  • you tell a half lie.
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:17.040
  • And they took her and was planning on doing some stuff,
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:20.090
  • and he up there allowing it to happen, wouldn't stand
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:22.190
  • up for his wife.
  • 00:18:22.200 --> 00:18:24.010
  • What kind of man is that?
  • 00:18:24.020 --> 00:18:27.130
  • And check out what he gets for acting like a weak punk.
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:32.220
  • Look at the increase this guy gets.
  • 00:18:32.230 --> 00:18:35.270
  • He gets silver and gold and cattle and servants.
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:40.160
  • It's like where did all that blessing come from?
  • 00:18:40.170 --> 00:18:43.010
  • How he gonna act like that and still get blessed?
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:47.070
  • God says, "Because I declared him righteous, and I refuse
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:52.240
  • to not treat him as a righteous man.
  • 00:18:52.250 --> 00:18:55.080
  • Even though his behavior is unrighteous, I'm gonna treat him
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:58.130
  • righteous, because this is not about Abraham,
  • 00:18:58.140 --> 00:19:01.090
  • it is about my word."
  • 00:19:01.100 --> 00:19:06.100
  • I'm blessed because of Jesus.
  • 00:19:10.200 --> 00:19:13.020
  • I said I'm blessed because of Jesus.
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:15.060
  • So when you get that promotion sometime next week, don't you go
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:17.270
  • boasting about what you did.
  • 00:19:17.280 --> 00:19:21.030
  • Oh, y'all don't hear me.
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:22.230
  • When you got some debt that's supernaturally cancelled, don't
  • 00:19:22.240 --> 00:19:25.070
  • come talkin' about your your financial strategies.
  • 00:19:25.080 --> 00:19:27.090
  • No, I don't want to hear all that, 'cause it wasn't nobody
  • 00:19:27.100 --> 00:19:29.190
  • but God, hallelujah.
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:31.120
  • The goodness of the Lord will change a man's mind, and I
  • 00:19:31.130 --> 00:19:35.190
  • prophesy goodness raining down like the rain we're hearing
  • 00:19:35.200 --> 00:19:38.170
  • this morning.
  • 00:19:38.180 --> 00:19:39.230
  • I prophesy goodness, not because of what you did, not because
  • 00:19:39.240 --> 00:19:43.040
  • of your performance, but because of him, hallelujah.
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:46.050
  • Goodness, goodness, goodness, goodness.
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:50.250
  • You be careful how you try to take advantage
  • 00:19:50.260 --> 00:19:54.050
  • of the goodness of God.
  • 00:19:54.060 --> 00:19:57.000
  • "Well, what do you say when people ask ya?"
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:19:59.030
  • Here's what you say, "Oh, this is the Lord's doing."
  • 00:19:59.040 --> 00:20:04.030
  • It's just marvelous in my eyes, but look, don't get it twisted,
  • 00:20:04.040 --> 00:20:07.200
  • he gets the glory.
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:09.110
  • He gets the honor.
  • 00:20:09.120 --> 00:20:10.220
  • I can't take no glory.
  • 00:20:10.230 --> 00:20:12.030
  • See, when you're operating by the law and you had
  • 00:20:12.040 --> 00:20:14.180
  • to perform to get it to happen, then you can boast, but when
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:18.190
  • you're operating under grace, there is no boasting, because
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:21.250
  • you know that it was done before you ever existed,
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:24.250
  • praise God.
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:26.050
  • He was already--he'd already made his mind up, "I'm going
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:28.180
  • to do you good and make you happy."
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:30.160
  • Turn to your neighbor and say, "God's going to do you good
  • 00:20:30.170 --> 00:20:32.140
  • and make you happy."
  • 00:20:32.150 --> 00:20:38.150
  • That's what happened after the cross.
  • 00:20:41.170 --> 00:20:45.050
  • Now, I promise you, you will go turn on some Christian
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:47.140
  • television, and you're going to hear somebody talk to you
  • 00:20:47.150 --> 00:20:49.190
  • about, "If you want God to do this, you're gonna
  • 00:20:49.200 --> 00:20:52.010
  • have to do that.
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.110
  • If you want God to bless you, now if you want him to bless
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:20:55.060
  • you, you gotta do these 10 things."
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:57.050
  • And that is the pattern of the law that came from Moses.
  • 00:20:57.060 --> 00:21:02.020
  • "Well, what did you do to get blessed?"
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.170
  • I believe Jesus.
  • 00:21:03.180 --> 00:21:05.030
  • I believe I'm already healed, I believe I'm already prosperous,
  • 00:21:05.040 --> 00:21:08.090
  • I believe I'm already sound, I believe I already operate
  • 00:21:08.100 --> 00:21:10.290
  • in favor.
  • 00:21:11.000 --> 00:21:12.040
  • That's why you don't sweat the small stuff.
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:14.090
  • Quit sweating the small stuff, because Jesus has already
  • 00:21:14.100 --> 00:21:16.260
  • handled it, praise God.
  • 00:21:16.270 --> 00:21:18.090
  • Quit sweating it, quit complaining.
  • 00:21:18.100 --> 00:21:20.000
  • He's already done it, praise God.
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:21.180
  • Every time something happens, that's when you just loose your
  • 00:21:21.190 --> 00:21:24.240
  • faith and say, "Oh, that crazy thing happened, but thank God
  • 00:21:24.250 --> 00:21:27.170
  • Jesus has already handled it."
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:29.080
  • "Oh, God, I need some money there, but thank God he's my
  • 00:21:29.090 --> 00:21:32.080
  • provider.
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:33.140
  • Oh, this is happening in my marriage, but thank God he's
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:35.290
  • the restorer of my marriage."
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:39.210
  • That's when you start releasing your faith.
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:41.240
  • The greatest faith you can have is learning how to rest
  • 00:21:41.250 --> 00:21:44.100
  • in the finished works of Jesus, learning how to rest in what
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:47.110
  • he's already done.
  • 00:21:47.120 --> 00:21:50.260
  • That's what we do under the covenant of grace.
  • 00:21:50.270 --> 00:21:53.020
  • That's what we do under the covenant of grace.
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:56.010
  • That's what we do, and we have been a part of churches that's
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:21:59.180
  • made it--that's literally created what I call
  • 00:21:59.190 --> 00:22:05.140
  • performance-based Christianity.
  • 00:22:05.150 --> 00:22:09.050
  • Christianity that's based completely on what you do
  • 00:22:09.060 --> 00:22:14.280
  • instead of a Christianity that's based on faith in what Jesus has
  • 00:22:14.290 --> 00:22:19.160
  • already done.
  • 00:22:19.170 --> 00:22:23.290
  • Y'all gettin' this?
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:27.150
  • How many you know the whole world needs to hear this?
  • 00:22:27.160 --> 00:22:31.080
  • You know where you were, you know where you are, and you
  • 00:22:31.090 --> 00:22:36.120
  • know, you've gotta train yourself.
  • 00:22:36.130 --> 00:22:38.020
  • You gotta renew your mind, 'cause it's easy to just slip
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:40.260
  • back and, I gotta do somethin.'
  • 00:22:40.270 --> 00:22:43.020
  • I gotta do somethin.'
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:45.060
  • Bad thing happened, immediately, I gotta do something instead
  • 00:22:45.070 --> 00:22:48.280
  • of resting and saying Jesus has already done it.
  • 00:22:48.290 --> 00:22:51.020
  • I have faith in you.
  • 00:22:51.030 --> 00:22:52.100
  • And you spend your days praising God and thanking him and looking
  • 00:22:52.110 --> 00:22:55.190
  • at his word and looking at Jesus, Oh, God, I trust you.
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:58.170
  • I trust it's already been done.
  • 00:22:58.180 --> 00:22:59.240
  • See, you think that's the weak part.
  • 00:22:59.250 --> 00:23:01.100
  • You have convinced--your thinkin' says I gotta do
  • 00:23:01.110 --> 00:23:03.160
  • somethin,' I gotta do somethin', Okay, so maybe if I fast for 40
  • 00:23:03.170 --> 00:23:07.050
  • days, it'll rectify this.
  • 00:23:07.060 --> 00:23:08.170
  • No, no, ain't nothin' wrong with fasting, but there's
  • 00:23:08.180 --> 00:23:10.060
  • somethin' wrong with fasting trying to get God to do what he
  • 00:23:10.070 --> 00:23:14.190
  • has already done.
  • 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:20.200
  • Fasting should be done to reposition you, not
  • 00:23:21.280 --> 00:23:27.090
  • to reposition God.
  • 00:23:27.100 --> 00:23:31.280
  • Fasting should be done to deal with your unbelief, not God's
  • 00:23:31.290 --> 00:23:37.170
  • lack of work.
  • 00:23:37.180 --> 00:23:40.130
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:42.040
  • Amen?
  • 00:23:42.050 --> 00:23:43.140
  • If you got that, say amen.
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:45.170
  • All right, let's go to the next one.
  • 00:23:45.180 --> 00:23:47.110
  • What are the requirements for forgiveness?
  • 00:23:47.120 --> 00:23:50.130
  • What are the requirements for forgiveness?
  • 00:23:50.140 --> 00:23:53.110
  • We have been taught that if you want God to forgive you, you
  • 00:23:53.120 --> 00:23:58.170
  • better forgive first, and if you don't forgive first, then God
  • 00:23:58.180 --> 00:24:02.290
  • can't forgive you.
  • 00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:05.220
  • That is true under the Old Covenant.
  • 00:24:05.230 --> 00:24:09.160
  • "Oh, but Brother Dollar, that's in the book of Matthew."
  • 00:24:09.170 --> 00:24:12.030
  • Oh, now here's another deal.
  • 00:24:12.040 --> 00:24:14.220
  • Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, that was Jesus operating as
  • 00:24:14.230 --> 00:24:20.230
  • a prophet under the Old Covenant, fulfilling the law
  • 00:24:23.110 --> 00:24:29.050
  • and preparing the way of grace.
  • 00:24:29.060 --> 00:24:32.090
  • So you better be careful about reading the red, 'cause
  • 00:24:32.100 --> 00:24:38.000
  • you ain't gonna like all that red, especially where it says,
  • 00:24:38.010 --> 00:24:40.150
  • If your hands offend you, cut it off.
  • 00:24:40.160 --> 00:24:43.160
  • If your eyes offend you, pluck it out.
  • 00:24:43.170 --> 00:24:45.100
  • That's in the red.
  • 00:24:45.110 --> 00:24:50.290
  • No, you gotta recognize that Jesus is--the reason why Jesus
  • 00:24:51.000 --> 00:24:56.050
  • fasted like he fasted and didn't eat what he ate, he was the one
  • 00:24:56.060 --> 00:25:02.020
  • fulfilling the requirements of the law, and if you read
  • 00:25:02.030 --> 00:25:07.200
  • and don't rightly divide it, you'll now say, "Jesus did it,
  • 00:25:07.210 --> 00:25:11.110
  • so I'm gonna do it, 'cause you don't recognize that what Jesus
  • 00:25:11.120 --> 00:25:14.190
  • was doing was fulfilling the law that you couldn't fulfill."
  • 00:25:14.200 --> 00:25:20.200
  • announcer: How do you see the Christian life?
  • 00:25:20.230 --> 00:25:22.270
  • Is it a performance-driven life, or is it a life depending

  • on Jesus.
