  • 00:00:03.150 --> 00:00:05.080
  • Creflo Dollar: The law by Moses had no transformative power.
  • 00:00:05.090 --> 00:00:10.000
  • You do not get more holy by keeping the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:00:10.010 --> 00:00:13.150
  • You become more sinful by trying to keep
  • 00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:16.230
  • the commandments.
  • 00:00:16.240 --> 00:00:18.030
  • Because it was given in his perfection to bring you
  • 00:00:18.040 --> 00:00:21.030
  • to a point, knock you down so much that you realize,
  • 00:00:21.040 --> 00:00:24.180
  • "I can't do this.
  • 00:00:24.190 --> 00:00:26.180
  • I need a Savior."
  • 00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:28.230
  • And he says, "Ah-ha! Now you see it."
  • 00:00:28.240 --> 00:00:31.290
  • male announcer: Creflo and Taffi Dollar are blanketing the world
  • 00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:34.220
  • with the message of grace and biblical equality.
  • 00:00:34.230 --> 00:00:37.200
  • Souls are being saved and lives are being transformed all
  • 00:00:37.210 --> 00:00:41.260
  • around the world.
  • 00:00:41.270 --> 00:00:43.190
  • female: Their ministry, World Changers Church, you know, World
  • 00:00:43.200 --> 00:00:46.050
  • Changers International, it really does make a difference
  • 00:00:46.060 --> 00:00:48.280
  • in people's lives.
  • 00:00:48.290 --> 00:00:50.080
  • There's so many people, too many for them to count, of how their
  • 00:00:50.090 --> 00:00:53.230
  • lives have been impacted.
  • 00:00:53.240 --> 00:00:55.060
  • male announcer: And now it's your time.
  • 00:00:55.070 --> 00:00:57.090
  • Call, text, or go online to register today.
  • 00:00:57.100 --> 00:01:01.040
  • This is your world
  • 00:01:02.110 --> 00:01:05.020
  • so let's vow to make it a better place
  • 00:01:05.030 --> 00:01:10.080
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:10.090 --> 00:01:15.140
  • your love is here to stay
  • 00:01:15.150 --> 00:01:19.000
  • It's time we live a new life
  • 00:01:19.010 --> 00:01:23.030
  • Let his love shine bright in you
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:27.170
  • We're saved by his grace
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:29.060
  • so we embrace your love today
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:32.170
  • We are changed
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:35.180
  • Creflo Dollar: Deuteronomy 28, let's look at verse 2.
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:40.080
  • Is everybody on the journey?
  • 00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:43.140
  • "All these blessings shall come on thee, and all these blessings
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:46.180
  • shall overtake thee."
  • 00:01:46.190 --> 00:01:47.290
  • Uh-oh, condition, "If thou."
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:49.290
  • That's a condition.
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:51.100
  • Your performance is a condition.
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:52.250
  • You being blessed is gonna be based on your performance.
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:56.150
  • All right, "If thou hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God."
  • 00:01:56.160 --> 00:01:59.270
  • And then verse 3, "If you do hearken,
  • 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:02.120
  • blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed--"
  • 00:02:02.130 --> 00:02:04.040
  • Now, here's what he just said.
  • 00:02:04.050 --> 00:02:05.220
  • If your performance is acceptable,
  • 00:02:05.230 --> 00:02:08.130
  • then you will be blessed.
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:11.260
  • If you're doing the right things, then you'll be blessed.
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:16.240
  • All right, what if you're not doing the right things?
  • 00:02:16.250 --> 00:02:19.140
  • Well, go to verse 15, 'cause all of this is based on what you do.
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:25.150
  • This whole thing's based on your performance.
  • 00:02:25.250 --> 00:02:28.140
  • This agreement is a performance-based agreement,
  • 00:02:28.150 --> 00:02:34.170
  • all right?
  • 00:02:34.180 --> 00:02:35.270
  • Verse 15, Deuteronomy 28, verse 15,
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.170
  • so here's what happens if you-- "But it shall come to pass,
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:42.160
  • if thou will not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God,
  • 00:02:42.170 --> 00:02:46.120
  • to observe to do his commandments and his statutes
  • 00:02:46.130 --> 00:02:48.140
  • which I command thee this day," what's gonna happen?
  • 00:02:48.150 --> 00:02:51.000
  • "All these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee,"
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:54.260
  • and the Bible says, "until you be destroyed."
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.220
  • So, the intent is for you to die and to be destroyed if you're
  • 00:02:56.230 --> 00:03:01.040
  • not performing up to expectation of keeping all the commandments.
  • 00:03:01.050 --> 00:03:07.050
  • It looks like an impossible task.
  • 00:03:07.130 --> 00:03:10.270
  • In fact, in Exodus chapter 19, you'll read about how we got
  • 00:03:10.280 --> 00:03:15.210
  • in this mess when they thought they could do everything
  • 00:03:15.220 --> 00:03:17.210
  • without God's grace.
  • 00:03:17.220 --> 00:03:19.160
  • And you go to Exodus 20, and in Exodus 20, starting
  • 00:03:19.170 --> 00:03:23.190
  • at verse 1, he starts laying out just the Ten Commandments
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:26.230
  • to be written on stone.
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:29.000
  • He knew that nobody could keep all these commandments,
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:31.290
  • or couldn't keep the agreement, so at the very end, the last
  • 00:03:32.000 --> 00:03:35.200
  • three or four verses in Exodus 20, he puts a provision in.
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:41.210
  • And it was a sacrificial animal provision, and he said, "If
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:46.010
  • you'll bring an animal once a year to the priests, and it's
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:50.190
  • a fitting animal and accepted, then I'll use the blood
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:54.280
  • of the animal to cover your sins for a year and I'll bless you
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:59.270
  • through the sacrifice."
  • 00:03:59.280 --> 00:04:02.170
  • Now think, if this, what we just talked about, the law
  • 00:04:02.180 --> 00:04:08.150
  • from Moses, if we could've been successful in that, we would've
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:11.220
  • got blessed from that, right?
  • 00:04:11.230 --> 00:04:13.110
  • If we could've been successful in it, why then would you
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:16.100
  • institute the sacrificial offering and say you blessed us
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:19.060
  • through that?
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:20.170
  • Because he knew you weren't going to be able to do it.
  • 00:04:20.180 --> 00:04:23.180
  • It wasn't given to you to be successful.
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:25.290
  • The law was given to you for you to fail.
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:29.280
  • It was given to you to bring you to an end of yourself, so you
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:33.120
  • could fail miserably, so you would have a sin conscience
  • 00:04:33.130 --> 00:04:37.120
  • and walk in shame, and guilt, and condemnation.
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:41.140
  • It was not given to make you holy.
  • 00:04:41.150 --> 00:04:44.110
  • The law by Moses had no transformative power.
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:49.030
  • You do not get more holy by keeping the Ten Commandments.
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:52.180
  • You become more--you become more sinful by trying to keep
  • 00:04:52.190 --> 00:04:55.270
  • the commandments, because it was given in his perfection to bring
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:05:00.050
  • you to a point, knock you down so much, that you realize,
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:03.240
  • "I can't do this.
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:05.230
  • I need a Savior."
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:07.290
  • And he says, "Ah-ha!
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:09.240
  • Now you see it."
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:12.230
  • And you thought the whole time that the Ten Commandments
  • 00:05:12.240 --> 00:05:16.170
  • and you keeping it was gonna make you holy.
  • 00:05:16.180 --> 00:05:19.170
  • It wasn't given to make you holy.
  • 00:05:19.180 --> 00:05:21.290
  • I tell ya, I was so super shocked, just like some of you
  • 00:05:22.000 --> 00:05:24.230
  • are, just like some of you, over 09 are--and you know,
  • 00:05:24.240 --> 00:05:28.070
  • people will do things like, "Well, that ain't what
  • 00:05:28.080 --> 00:05:29.290
  • my Bible says."
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:32.000
  • Would you just please listen?
  • 00:05:32.010 --> 00:05:33.100
  • You don't rightly divide the truth.
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:34.210
  • So, they'll do things like in Hebrews chapter--
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:36.210
  • Do I have time to do this, Lord?
  • 00:05:36.220 --> 00:05:40.210
  • Yeah, go to Hebrews 10.
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:42.210
  • Here's the famous thing that people use when I teach this.
  • 00:05:42.220 --> 00:05:47.100
  • Look at Hebrews chapter 10 and I'm gonna go kind of quick,
  • 00:05:47.110 --> 00:05:51.050
  • 'cause you know, for some of you,
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:53.210
  • we've taught this before.
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:55.010
  • But Hebrews chapter chapter 10, and verse 26 is the famous one.
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:06:00.020
  • And they don't even understand because you have to rightly
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:02.090
  • divide it, right?
  • 00:06:02.100 --> 00:06:03.250
  • Hebrews 10:26, if you're there say amen.
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:06.230
  • And so, when we talk about this, he says, "For if we sin
  • 00:06:06.240 --> 00:06:10.030
  • willfully after that we have received the knowledge
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:13.030
  • of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins."
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:16.100
  • They don't know what truth is and they don't even know how
  • 00:06:16.110 --> 00:06:18.170
  • this thing was going on.
  • 00:06:18.180 --> 00:06:19.270
  • So to them, the Scripture says, "If you sin willfully, then
  • 00:06:19.280 --> 00:06:24.210
  • there's no more sacrifice for your sin," meaning if you
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:29.090
  • sin willfully, then there's no more sacrifice for you to be
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:34.050
  • forgiven for your sins.
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:35.160
  • That's not what that says.
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:37.080
  • Okay, let's break it down.
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:38.180
  • Here's the big problem with that.
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:39.290
  • First problem, all sin is willful.
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:43.280
  • You don't make a mistake and sin.
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:47.060
  • Oops, I slapped you.
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:48.170
  • No, you decided to.
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:50.150
  • Sin is a willful act, okay?
  • 00:06:50.160 --> 00:06:54.000
  • But that's not what he's talkin' about.
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:55.140
  • You have to read in context.
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:57.060
  • I'll tell you what he's talkin' about.
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:58.170
  • He's saying if you sin willfully, after you have
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:00.290
  • received the knowledge of the truth--
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.230
  • What is the knowledge of the truth?
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:04.040
  • Here in this chapter, the truth was that we don't need
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:07.090
  • the animal sacrifices anymore and their blood because Jesus is
  • 00:07:07.100 --> 00:07:10.230
  • the final sacrifice and his blood takes care of sin once
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:14.090
  • and for all times.
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:15.190
  • So, if you sin willfully after you have heard the truth
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:18.280
  • that Jesus's body is now the final sacrifice, there
  • 00:07:18.290 --> 00:07:22.150
  • remaineth no more sacrifices for sin because we no longer use
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:26.180
  • the animals anymore.
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:28.030
  • The sin here is rejecting Jesus as the sacrifice for sin.
  • 00:07:28.040 --> 00:07:34.040
  • I'll prove it to you real quick.
  • 00:07:36.030 --> 00:07:38.050
  • Go through it real quick.
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:39.150
  • Verses--Hebrews 10, verse 5, "Wherefore when he cometh
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:43.070
  • into the world, he saith, Sacrifices and offerings thou
  • 00:07:43.080 --> 00:07:46.070
  • wouldest not, but a body has thou prepared for me."
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:50.010
  • Verse 10, he says, "By the which will we are sanctified
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:54.050
  • through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:57.240
  • and for all."
  • 00:07:57.250 --> 00:07:59.040
  • Verse 14, "For by one offering he has perfected forever them
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:03.170
  • that are sanctified."
  • 00:08:03.180 --> 00:08:05.190
  • And then verse 10, Now if you sin willfully by rejecting his
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:11.000
  • body as the final sacrifice, then, if you do this, if you
  • 00:08:11.010 --> 00:08:16.180
  • reject his body as the final sacrifice and not receive
  • 00:08:16.190 --> 00:08:19.190
  • the knowledge of this truth, which is his grace doing it
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:22.190
  • for us that we didn't deserve it, then there remaineth no more
  • 00:08:22.200 --> 00:08:25.230
  • sacrifices for sin.
  • 00:08:25.240 --> 00:08:27.130
  • In other words, you kill a lamb, it ain't gonna cleanse you.
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:30.060
  • Sin--the blood of a lamb cannot take away sin.
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:34.120
  • Only the blood of Jesus can take away sin, so there remaineth no
  • 00:08:34.130 --> 00:08:37.170
  • more sacrifice for your sins if you reject the blood of Jesus
  • 00:08:37.180 --> 00:08:41.070
  • and his body.
  • 00:08:41.080 --> 00:08:44.100
  • You see that?
  • 00:08:44.110 --> 00:08:45.210
  • Now, how many of you have heard somebody use Hebrews 10:26
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:49.160
  • the wrong way?
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:51.030
  • Because it was out of context, and context is king.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:55.230
  • You define--a verse of Scripture is based
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:08:59.130
  • on the application of that Scripture is in context form is
  • 00:08:59.140 --> 00:09:03.130
  • how you define it.
  • 00:09:03.140 --> 00:09:05.090
  • You don't go to Webster's.
  • 00:09:05.100 --> 00:09:07.090
  • It's defined within its context.
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:10.080
  • And if you don't know about grace, and if you don't
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:13.000
  • know about the law, and all that stuff, then you will continue
  • 00:09:13.010 --> 00:09:17.160
  • to get the wrong understanding of what this is supposed to be.
  • 00:09:17.170 --> 00:09:22.050
  • Amen?
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:24.160
  • Now, did we read the curse, about what happens when you
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:29.080
  • can't perform?
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.210
  • All right, so this is performance-based agreement.
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:34.190
  • Now, let's look at Galatians chapter 3:13.
  • 00:09:34.200 --> 00:09:40.190
  • All right, let me do one more thing before I get into it.
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:44.190
  • Because what I'm gonna say is so radical, I gotta make sure I
  • 00:09:44.200 --> 00:09:46.110
  • cover all my bases.
  • 00:09:46.120 --> 00:09:49.250
  • According to the law that by Moses, how did you get
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:52.220
  • blessed?
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:54.020
  • Okay, well, let's go to Deuteronomy, what is it,
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:10:00.030
  • 11:26-27?
  • 00:10:00.230 --> 00:10:02.250
  • Let's look at that real quick and then come back
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:04.140
  • to Galatians 3.
  • 00:10:04.150 --> 00:10:06.240
  • I'm just thinkin' about the questions that people
  • 00:10:06.250 --> 00:10:08.120
  • would ask.
  • 00:10:08.130 --> 00:10:09.230
  • I got to equip you 'cause you got to help me to preach this
  • 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:11.110
  • message, 'cause after this month I'm goin' into some dangerous
  • 00:10:11.120 --> 00:10:14.010
  • territory.
  • 00:10:14.020 --> 00:10:15.120
  • I'm goin' into the territory of the people who really think
  • 00:10:15.130 --> 00:10:20.230
  • they know Jesus.
  • 00:10:20.240 --> 00:10:26.220
  • Alright, now watch this.
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:28.190
  • "Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse," 27,
  • 00:10:28.200 --> 00:10:33.110
  • "A blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:35.220
  • your God, which I command you this day."
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:37.070
  • So, how do you get blessed?
  • 00:10:37.080 --> 00:10:41.100
  • Alright, verse 28, "And a curse," how do you get cursed?
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:47.100
  • So, is it true that both of those are performance-based?
  • 00:10:49.170 --> 00:10:52.110
  • It's based on what you do.
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:53.230
  • You get blessed based on what you do.
  • 00:10:53.240 --> 00:10:55.190
  • You get cursed based on what you do, right?
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:11:00.080
  • Okay, go to Galatians chapter 3.
  • 00:11:00.090 --> 00:11:06.080
  • Now, let me show you this right quick, Galatians chapter 3.
  • 00:11:15.270 --> 00:11:21.270
  • Before I read verse 13-- yeah, yeah, Galatians 3:13.
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:28.240
  • All right, y'all ready to hear this?
  • 00:11:35.160 --> 00:11:38.170
  • Whoo, boy, here we go.
  • 00:11:38.180 --> 00:11:44.180
  • Okay, read verse 13. Ready?
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:55.140
  • "Christ has redeemed us.."
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:58.110
  • Verse 14.
  • 00:12:06.210 --> 00:12:09.130
  • Okay, first question, how does the blessing--how do we get
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:22.050
  • blessed under the grace of God unto Jesus after the cross?
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:27.040
  • Before the cross, we got blessed by keeping the commandments.
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:33.050
  • How do you get blessed in the new covenant?
  • 00:12:35.110 --> 00:12:37.190
  • Believing Jesus, right?
  • 00:12:37.200 --> 00:12:39.260
  • How you get blessed in the old covenant?
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:43.050
  • See, here's the deception.
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:44.160
  • Nobody could keep the law.
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.000
  • So, how did you get blessed?
  • 00:12:47.010 --> 00:12:50.040
  • Well, no, you did.
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:51.140
  • Remember the provision he set.
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:53.210
  • You got blessed through the animal sacrifice.
  • 00:12:53.220 --> 00:12:57.140
  • Nobody could keep 613.
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:13:02.090
  • That's why Jesus came.
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:05.090
  • You remember when he said, "I didn't come to destroy the law,
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:07.150
  • but I came to," what?
  • 00:13:07.160 --> 00:13:09.110
  • "Fulfill it."
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:13.090
  • See, the thing I didn't recognize is I'm sitting up here
  • 00:13:13.100 --> 00:13:15.230
  • trying to keep the law to get blessed, and can't.
  • 00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:21.240
  • You remember in Genesis Chapter 12 when God showed
  • 00:13:25.280 --> 00:13:28.270
  • up to Abraham?
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.140
  • And that was 430 years before the law ever came
  • 00:13:30.150 --> 00:13:32.260
  • into place.
  • 00:13:32.270 --> 00:13:34.070
  • And you remember what he said to Abraham in Genesis 12?
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:36.060
  • "I will bless you.
  • 00:13:36.070 --> 00:13:38.190
  • I will bless your children.
  • 00:13:38.200 --> 00:13:41.010
  • You will be a blessing.
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:43.000
  • All families of the Earth will be blessed."
  • 00:13:43.010 --> 00:13:45.110
  • There was no law.
  • 00:13:45.120 --> 00:13:47.050
  • God showed up and blessed Abraham just 'cause
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:49.020
  • Abraham believed.
  • 00:13:49.030 --> 00:13:51.020
  • It was a picture of the grace of God.
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:53.290
  • He blessed Abraham, and Abraham said, "I believe," and the Bible
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:58.050
  • says that heaven said, "You're righteous."
  • 00:13:58.060 --> 00:14:00.280
  • He didn't do nothin'.
  • 00:14:00.290 --> 00:14:02.090
  • He believed and heaven said he was righteous, and then God
  • 00:14:02.100 --> 00:14:05.080
  • says, "I will, I will, I will.
  • 00:14:05.090 --> 00:14:06.260
  • I will bless you. I will bless you.
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:09.170
  • You will be a blessing. I will make your name great."
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:12.080
  • And what did he do?
  • 00:14:12.090 --> 00:14:13.190
  • First of all, he comes out of a situation where God
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:16.030
  • said, "Don't take your relative with you, nobody."
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:18.220
  • And he took his nephew.
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:21.050
  • And then he's--so, God didn't bless him because he was
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:24.060
  • performing, 'cause the first performance seemed like it was
  • 00:14:24.070 --> 00:14:26.240
  • a disobedient act.
  • 00:14:26.250 --> 00:14:29.210
  • And if you keep reading about Abraham, he kept doin'
  • 00:14:29.220 --> 00:14:32.010
  • trippy, stupid stuff, and God was still blessing them because
  • 00:14:32.020 --> 00:14:35.150
  • it wasn't based on Abraham's performance.
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:39.040
  • It was based on his belief.
  • 00:14:39.050 --> 00:14:45.040
  • This is somethin.'
  • 00:14:48.110 --> 00:14:49.220
  • All right, now go back to 13.
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:54.070
  • Alright, let's rock and roll with this.
  • 00:14:54.080 --> 00:15:00.100
  • "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law."
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:04.050
  • Now, what did he just say.
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:06.000
  • Here's what he said.
  • 00:15:06.010 --> 00:15:07.260
  • Christ has delivered us from the curse of not being able
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:13.270
  • to perform what the law said.
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:20.060
  • Christ has delivered us from performance-based religion
  • 00:15:20.240 --> 00:15:26.240
  • and the curse that comes when you don't perform according
  • 00:15:28.120 --> 00:15:33.120
  • to the law.
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:36.200
  • Christ has paid the ransom for you not to be cursed even
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:42.200
  • when your performance doesn't line up with the law.
  • 00:15:43.260 --> 00:15:49.260
  • Christ has redeemed, delivered, and paid the ransom so that you
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:56.090
  • could not be cursed by not being able to do it.
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:16:03.070
  • Because before he paid the ransom, you were cursed
  • 00:16:05.020 --> 00:16:08.120
  • for not being able to do it.
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:10.090
  • Read the rest of Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.280
  • They died. They got sickness.
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:14.190
  • They got disease.
  • 00:16:14.200 --> 00:16:15.290
  • If you went out on the wrong day and picked up sticks,
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:17.160
  • you were stoned to death.
  • 00:16:17.170 --> 00:16:19.160
  • If your children rebelled against you, parents had
  • 00:16:19.170 --> 00:16:21.190
  • to stone their children to death.
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.140
  • Their people died because they couldn't keep the law.
  • 00:16:23.150 --> 00:16:29.010
  • And Jesus said, "I am going to pay the ransom so you will
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:34.000
  • never again have to ever even worry about a curse coming
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:38.230
  • on you because of what you couldn't do or didn't do."
  • 00:16:38.240 --> 00:16:44.230
  • You're not gonna be cursed because of what you didn't do.
  • 00:16:47.260 --> 00:16:53.220
  • You're not gonna be cursed because of what you did not do.
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:59.240
  • And that's all religion is today.
  • 00:17:01.070 --> 00:17:04.170
  • Religion is all about what you supposed to do, and God's gonna
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:09.140
  • be mad at you and get you if you don't do.
  • 00:17:09.150 --> 00:17:13.210
  • That's all.
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:15.040
  • Now, am I justifying sin and justifying bad behavior?
  • 00:17:15.050 --> 00:17:18.030
  • No, I'm justifying the avenue that you keep holding onto that
  • 00:17:18.040 --> 00:17:23.140
  • you think is going to help you to give--to help you not to sin
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:26.240
  • and to help to give you better behavior.
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:28.140
  • Jesus said, "Here is how we're going to now deal with your sin
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:31.090
  • and your bad behavior.
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:33.030
  • Believe in me and I'm going to pour the Holy Spirit in you.
  • 00:17:33.040 --> 00:17:37.070
  • We're gonna transform you from the inside out and we're
  • 00:17:37.080 --> 00:17:40.100
  • gonna achieve what could have been done by keeping the law,
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:44.030
  • but you couldn't do it because you was imperfect.
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:46.110
  • But I'm going to send somebody who's perfect to live in you
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:49.150
  • and he's going to be your helper and he's gonna help you."
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:53.080
  • And you're going to not want to do what you used to want
  • 00:17:53.090 --> 00:17:55.250
  • to do and he's gonna transform you from the inside out.
  • 00:17:55.260 --> 00:17:59.090
  • He's gonna pour love in you and you're gonna figure out how
  • 00:17:59.100 --> 00:18:01.170
  • in the world could I forgiven?
  • 00:18:01.180 --> 00:18:02.280
  • Because the Holy Spirit says, "Now, all I'm asking you to do
  • 00:18:02.290 --> 00:18:06.260
  • is not to do, but to believe what I have already done.
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:11.030
  • And if you'll believe me, then I will show you what to do.
  • 00:18:11.040 --> 00:18:16.020
  • I will lead and guide you in what to do.
  • 00:18:16.030 --> 00:18:18.070
  • You keep tryin' to rule keep instead of believe me.
  • 00:18:18.080 --> 00:18:22.150
  • You won't believe me enough for me to lead and guide you
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:26.020
  • and show you what to do.
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:27.130
  • You keep tryin' to keep a law, like a genie in a lamp tryin'
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:30.170
  • to get somethin' to happen by keeping the rule."
  • 00:18:30.180 --> 00:18:32.270
  • And he says, "I don't want you to keep the rules.
  • 00:18:32.280 --> 00:18:34.230
  • I want you to believe me and love me, and I'm going
  • 00:18:34.240 --> 00:18:36.240
  • to get inside of you, and I'm gonna rearrange you
  • 00:18:36.250 --> 00:18:38.150
  • and change you.
  • 00:18:38.160 --> 00:18:40.010
  • I'm going to do some stuff on the inside of you
  • 00:18:40.020 --> 00:18:41.130
  • and with you that you--"
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:43.290
  • So, it's not justifying bad behavior or sin.
  • 00:18:44.000 --> 00:18:49.050
  • What he's saying is, "I don't want you to go down that road
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:52.130
  • to try to accomplish that, 'cause that doesn't work."
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:57.050
  • 'Cause goin' down the road of tryin' to keep the law, all
  • 00:18:57.060 --> 00:18:59.270
  • that's gonna do is fill you with condemnation, fill you
  • 00:18:59.280 --> 00:19:03.080
  • with shame, fill you with guilt, because you're not gonna be
  • 00:19:03.090 --> 00:19:05.270
  • able to keep it.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:07.070
  • And every time you can't keep it, you're going
  • 00:19:07.080 --> 00:19:08.180
  • to feel condemned.
  • 00:19:08.190 --> 00:19:09.280
  • And every time you--you're gonna go three months keeping
  • 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:11.140
  • and then you mess up.
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:12.240
  • Now you're back again.
  • 00:19:12.250 --> 00:19:14.050
  • And then it's gonna be just a rollercoaster ride.
  • 00:19:14.060 --> 00:19:15.150
  • You're in a cycle of sin and condemnation and shame,
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:19.120
  • because you're trying to keep this.
  • 00:19:19.130 --> 00:19:21.050
  • You keep goin' to God, talkin' about, "What I need to do,
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:23.040
  • what I need to do, what I need to do."
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:24.240
  • And he says, "I don't want you to do nothing.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:26.150
  • I want you to believe me, and out of your belief,
  • 00:19:26.160 --> 00:19:29.140
  • I'll give birth to what you're doing."
  • 00:19:29.150 --> 00:19:31.150
  • Your path to being able to have the right behavior and to stay
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:35.250
  • away from sin is what do you do.
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:38.090
  • That's the pattern of the old covenant.
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:40.250
  • The pattern of the law is about what you can do.
  • 00:19:40.260 --> 00:19:44.060
  • And he gave you 613 things to do that you can't do.
  • 00:19:44.070 --> 00:19:50.010
  • And he says, "Since you are carnal, I am now going to give
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:54.000
  • you Jesus, and we're gonna get-- we're gonna deliver you from
  • 00:19:54.010 --> 00:19:59.070
  • 613 laws, and all I need you to do is to keep this one law.
  • 00:19:59.080 --> 00:20:04.250
  • Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and love your neighbor, and I
  • 00:20:04.260 --> 00:20:09.030
  • will take care of the rest.
  • 00:20:09.040 --> 00:20:10.150
  • I will rearrange you.
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:11.250
  • I will change you.
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:13.050
  • I will take the--I will give you the desires.
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:15.160
  • You don't even have the desires, but I'm gonna give you the ones
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:17.250
  • that please me."
  • 00:20:17.260 --> 00:20:20.270
  • So, you're delivered from 613 to one.
  • 00:20:20.280 --> 00:20:26.270
  • And love is the fulfilling of the law, Romans 13:8-10.
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:33.290
  • So, the deal is how do we get out of this
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:47.010
  • performance-based religion?
  • 00:20:47.020 --> 00:20:51.080
  • All you do is come to church and hear about what you have
  • 00:20:51.090 --> 00:20:54.170
  • to do, instead of what you need to believe.
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:21:00.200
  • I'll give you a couple of illustrations.
  • 00:21:01.220 --> 00:21:07.000
  • I think I told this in church when I was--
  • 00:21:07.010 --> 00:21:09.060
  • we had just come from doing a meeting.
  • 00:21:09.070 --> 00:21:11.160
  • I went to the Lord and I said, "O God, what do I need to do
  • 00:21:11.170 --> 00:21:13.040
  • so I can have bigger impact?"
  • 00:21:13.050 --> 00:21:15.130
  • I didn't hear anything.
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:16.240
  • I said, "O God, show me what to do so I can get better
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:19.220
  • results for the kingdom."
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:24.110
  • I didn't hear nothing.
  • 00:21:24.120 --> 00:21:25.210
  • Then after a while, God says, "You've asked me two questions.
  • 00:21:25.220 --> 00:21:27.020
  • Both of them were about what you need to do."
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:31.060
  • He says, "You don't think that the things that happen, those
  • 00:21:31.070 --> 00:21:34.020
  • great things that happened you're praising me for, you
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:36.030
  • don't think all of that happened because of what you do?"
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:40.080
  • I said, "No, Sir."
  • 00:21:40.090 --> 00:21:42.100
  • He said, "It's because of what I did, so quit talking to me
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:45.210
  • about what you can do to have greater impact and start
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:50.180
  • believing in what Jesus has already done
  • 00:21:50.190 --> 00:21:54.280
  • for greater impact."
  • 00:21:54.290 --> 00:21:57.270
  • And all we do is go to God talking to him about, "Show me
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:21:59.290
  • what to do.
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:01.110
  • Show me what to do."
  • 00:22:01.120 --> 00:22:02.210
  • It's a pattern of the old covenant.
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:04.050
  • You remember the rich young ruler in book of Mark?
  • 00:22:04.060 --> 00:22:08.030
  • He would not trust Jesus as God, and so he's referred to him as
  • 00:22:08.040 --> 00:22:11.280
  • "Good Master."
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:13.090
  • "Good Master, what shall I," watch this, "do?"
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:17.110
  • He wants to know what to do, 'cause Jesus was still a Prophet
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:21.010
  • operating under the old covenant.
  • 00:22:21.020 --> 00:22:24.020
  • And as long as Jesus was walking on the planet,
  • 00:22:24.030 --> 00:22:26.080
  • the law was still valid.
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:29.110
  • What do I need to do? What do I need to do?
  • 00:22:29.120 --> 00:22:32.010
  • What do I need to do? What do I need to do?
  • 00:22:32.040 --> 00:22:34.230
  • Jesus said, "Why call me good? There's none good but God."
  • 00:22:34.240 --> 00:22:37.140
  • You know what he's saying? "Trust me."
  • 00:22:37.150 --> 00:22:40.050
  • He wouldn't trust him. He says, "You know what?
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:42.260
  • I'm going to answer your question like you asked me.
  • 00:22:42.270 --> 00:22:44.060
  • You want to know what to do?
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:45.170
  • Keep the commandments and you'll have eternal life."
  • 00:22:45.180 --> 00:22:48.240
  • And then this little joker is so deceived, "I've kept all
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:51.060
  • these commandments from my youth up."
  • 00:22:51.070 --> 00:22:52.160
  • Jesus said, "You lying and I'm fitting to and prove it to ya."
  • 00:22:52.170 --> 00:22:55.080
  • And guess what he used to prove to him?
  • 00:22:55.090 --> 00:22:56.260
  • He was gonna use money.
  • 00:22:56.270 --> 00:22:59.160
  • He said, "Take your money, give to the poor,
  • 00:22:59.170 --> 00:23:00.290
  • and come follow me."
  • 00:23:01.000 --> 00:23:03.100
  • And he broke--he gave evidence of breaking the first
  • 00:23:03.110 --> 00:23:05.150
  • commandment and the tenth commandment that was written
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:07.230
  • on stone.
  • 00:23:07.240 --> 00:23:10.050
  • And Jesus said, "You see that guy right there, man?"
  • 00:23:10.060 --> 00:23:14.190
  • He said, "This guy's never going to get it right because he can't
  • 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:20.030
  • figure out how to trust me.
  • 00:23:20.040 --> 00:23:24.030
  • He trusts in his ability and what he can do more
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:25.230
  • than he trusts me."
  • 00:23:25.240 --> 00:23:27.240
  • That's what we are today.
  • 00:23:27.250 --> 00:23:29.270
  • You got more trust in how long you can pray.
  • 00:23:29.280 --> 00:23:33.170
  • You got more trust in what you can do, and it's always
  • 00:23:33.180 --> 00:23:38.020
  • about what you can do.
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:40.050
  • And we created this huge religious organization that
  • 00:23:40.060 --> 00:23:44.140
  • talks about what you can do, and it's even infected faith.
  • 00:23:44.150 --> 00:23:49.220
  • You think you're working by faith,
  • 00:23:49.230 --> 00:23:51.080
  • it's doubt all day long.
  • 00:23:51.090 --> 00:23:53.190
  • 'Cause what you're doing, your faith is being based on all
  • 00:23:53.200 --> 00:23:56.170
  • the things you've got to do.
  • 00:23:56.180 --> 00:23:58.270
  • I was teaching at a Bible college last week and my last
  • 00:23:58.280 --> 00:24:03.010
  • session was a healing school.
  • 00:24:03.020 --> 00:24:05.280
  • And I said, Well, I'm going to go ahead and start, you know?
  • 00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:09.170
  • I'm going to just teach on some of the old stuff I used to teach
  • 00:24:09.180 --> 00:24:11.230
  • on healing.
  • 00:24:11.240 --> 00:24:13.030
  • And after I finished, I looked at it and I was like, "Ooh."
  • 00:24:13.040 --> 00:24:16.270
  • Every point was something you had to do by faith to get God
  • 00:24:16.280 --> 00:24:21.070
  • to heal you.
  • 00:24:21.080 --> 00:24:23.170
  • And God said, "Tear that up.
  • 00:24:23.180 --> 00:24:26.100
  • I told you not to talk about that.
  • 00:24:26.110 --> 00:24:27.200
  • I want you to teach on when your body was attacked and what you
  • 00:24:27.210 --> 00:24:31.270
  • did, understanding my grace and how you're all right now."
  • 00:24:31.280 --> 00:24:35.060
  • And I'm like, "Oh!"
  • 00:24:35.070 --> 00:24:36.290
  • And my first point was, "Understand what the Word says."
  • 00:24:37.000 --> 00:24:39.220
  • The second point was for me to realize that it's--my
  • 00:24:39.230 --> 00:24:43.280
  • healing is already done, that I'm not tryin' to get God
  • 00:24:43.290 --> 00:24:46.230
  • to heal me.
  • 00:24:46.240 --> 00:24:48.030
  • I'm already healed.
  • 00:24:48.040 --> 00:24:49.140
  • My third point is I'm not sick trying to get well, I'm
  • 00:24:49.150 --> 00:24:51.270
  • the healed, protecting my health, and so I'm fighting
  • 00:24:51.280 --> 00:24:54.180
  • a spiritual battle by maintaining the victory that
  • 00:24:54.190 --> 00:24:56.190
  • Jesus has already given me.
  • 00:24:56.200 --> 00:24:58.280
  • My fourth point was I'm not goin' from failure to victory.
  • 00:24:58.290 --> 00:25:02.030
  • I am goin' from victory to victory,
  • 00:25:02.040 --> 00:25:03.140
  • 'cause I'm already victorious.
  • 00:25:03.150 --> 00:25:06.120
  • male announcer: How do you see the Christian life?
  • 00:25:06.130 --> 00:25:08.190

  • on Jesus?
