  • I'm talking to folks who cometo church and say, "Hallelujah,"
  • 00:00:17.386 --> 00:00:19.321
  • and carry racism in their heart;it grieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:00:19.354 --> 00:00:26.728
  • And you're trying to figure outwhy the Scripture ain't working.
  • 00:00:26.762 --> 00:00:29.298

  • Creflo: I think there'ssomething about prayer that
  • 00:01:42.037 --> 00:01:44.840
  • people have just thrown away.
  • 00:01:44.873 --> 00:01:48.076
  • When is the last time you prayedabout the issue you're
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:50.145
  • going through?
  • 00:01:50.179 --> 00:01:52.347
  • When is the last time youprayed about inequality in
  • 00:01:52.381 --> 00:01:54.683
  • this country?
  • 00:01:54.716 --> 00:01:56.885
  • When was the last time youprayed about even the problems
  • 00:01:56.919 --> 00:01:59.788
  • that we have amongstour own race?
  • 00:01:59.821 --> 00:02:04.259
  • When was the last time you goton your face and asked God,
  • 00:02:04.293 --> 00:02:07.563
  • "Help me to reconcile?"
  • 00:02:07.596 --> 00:02:11.233
  • Or you're so mad you forgotthat there even is a God?
  • 00:02:11.266 --> 00:02:17.139
  • "Well, Brother Dollar, somepeople don't believe in God."
  • 00:02:17.172 --> 00:02:19.441
  • And that's another problem.
  • 00:02:19.474 --> 00:02:21.843
  • That's another problem; thatbecause we don't believe in God,
  • 00:02:21.877 --> 00:02:25.080
  • and we go out, and we go downa path that seems right unto a
  • 00:02:25.113 --> 00:02:28.717
  • man, and the end thereof is destruction.
  • 00:02:28.750 --> 00:02:33.555
  • So you may not believe in a Godnow, but you're going to die
  • 00:02:33.589 --> 00:02:35.657
  • one day.
  • 00:02:35.691 --> 00:02:37.626
  • And when you die, youwill--every knee will bow, every
  • 00:02:37.659 --> 00:02:40.229
  • tongue will confess.
  • 00:02:40.262 --> 00:02:42.764
  • You have bought the philosophiesof this world, you've put on the
  • 00:02:42.798 --> 00:02:45.234
  • lens of humanism, and you'vebeen talked out of the only one
  • 00:02:45.267 --> 00:02:49.471
  • that can help you in anysituation that you're in.
  • 00:02:49.504 --> 00:02:53.408
  • You don't believe?
  • 00:02:53.442 --> 00:02:54.910
  • You will.
  • 00:02:54.943 --> 00:02:56.812
  • But I'm trying to getyour attention right now.
  • 00:02:56.845 --> 00:02:59.081
  • I'm trying to get you tounderstand it wasn't the alarm
  • 00:02:59.114 --> 00:03:01.149
  • clock that woke youup this morning.
  • 00:03:01.183 --> 00:03:03.452
  • It was God.
  • 00:03:03.485 --> 00:03:05.787
  • I'm trying to get you tounderstand that the wreck you
  • 00:03:05.821 --> 00:03:08.090
  • should have died in, the onethat you got out of, that
  • 00:03:08.123 --> 00:03:10.292
  • was God.
  • 00:03:10.325 --> 00:03:12.361
  • I want you to understand thatany good that has ever happened
  • 00:03:12.394 --> 00:03:14.596
  • in your life; that was God.
  • 00:03:14.630 --> 00:03:17.032
  • And I'm asking you who don'tbelieve to go back and count
  • 00:03:17.065 --> 00:03:19.067
  • your blessings, and wherever yousee good, and wherever you see a
  • 00:03:19.101 --> 00:03:21.370
  • rescue, and whenever you werein a ditch and some--and you got
  • 00:03:21.403 --> 00:03:24.506
  • delivered up out of thatditch, that was God.
  • 00:03:24.539 --> 00:03:28.110
  • Don't wait late.
  • 00:03:28.143 --> 00:03:30.212
  • Don't wait till it's too late tohave faith in him and to accept
  • 00:03:30.245 --> 00:03:32.414
  • him into your life.
  • 00:03:32.447 --> 00:03:34.516
  • Repent, and bereconciled to God.
  • 00:03:34.549 --> 00:03:36.518
  • Repent, and come to Jesus.
  • 00:03:36.551 --> 00:03:38.754
  • Repent, and make him the Lordof your life in Jesus' name.
  • 00:03:38.787 --> 00:03:44.526
  • Number four, this is veryimportant: reconciliation
  • 00:03:44.559 --> 00:03:51.033
  • requires, watch this, humility.
  • 00:03:51.066 --> 00:03:55.470
  • Reconciliationrequires humility.
  • 00:03:55.504 --> 00:04:00.809
  • If you look at Genesis chapter33, "And he passed over before
  • 00:04:00.842 --> 00:04:05.347
  • them," watch Jacob, "And hebowed himself to the ground
  • 00:04:05.380 --> 00:04:10.319
  • seven times, until hecame near to his brother."
  • 00:04:10.352 --> 00:04:16.124
  • He's approaching his brotherand he's bowing down.
  • 00:04:16.158 --> 00:04:18.694
  • What is he signaling?
  • 00:04:18.727 --> 00:04:20.462
  • "I'm humbling myself."
  • 00:04:20.495 --> 00:04:22.531
  • I believe that reconciliationrequires humility.
  • 00:04:22.564 --> 00:04:26.668
  • This is a posture of humility.
  • 00:04:26.702 --> 00:04:30.205
  • Jacob humbled himselfbefore his brother.
  • 00:04:30.238 --> 00:04:32.741
  • He came with the right spiritand the right attitude.
  • 00:04:32.774 --> 00:04:37.913
  • He acknowledged that he had donewrong, that he was a deceiver,
  • 00:04:37.946 --> 00:04:42.918
  • that he tricked his brother outof his blessings, that he was
  • 00:04:42.951 --> 00:04:46.488
  • at fault.
  • 00:04:46.521 --> 00:04:48.523
  • He wasn't comingto have a debate.
  • 00:04:48.557 --> 00:04:50.625
  • When you're interested inreconciliation, it
  • 00:04:50.659 --> 00:04:52.794
  • requires humility.
  • 00:04:52.828 --> 00:04:55.630
  • Humility puts us in a positionand a posture for reconciliation
  • 00:04:55.664 --> 00:04:59.868
  • to occur; swallowing yourpride, admitting you're wrong.
  • 00:04:59.901 --> 00:05:07.576
  • That's the costof reconciliation.
  • 00:05:07.609 --> 00:05:10.812
  • Are you willing to pay thecost of reconciliation?
  • 00:05:10.846 --> 00:05:15.917
  • Are you willing to pay whatit's going to cost to
  • 00:05:15.951 --> 00:05:19.454
  • see reconciliation?
  • 00:05:19.488 --> 00:05:22.190
  • Will you be able toswallow your pride?
  • 00:05:22.224 --> 00:05:24.726
  • Will you be able toadmit your wrongs?
  • 00:05:24.760 --> 00:05:29.564
  • Every action of reconciliationrequires that someone in the
  • 00:05:29.598 --> 00:05:33.535
  • hurting relationship, preferablyboth parties, but someone's got
  • 00:05:33.568 --> 00:05:39.307
  • to admit their fault and theirdesire to repair that damage.
  • 00:05:39.341 --> 00:05:46.314
  • Reconciliation comes.
  • 00:05:46.348 --> 00:05:49.618
  • It costs though.
  • 00:05:49.651 --> 00:05:51.520
  • Look at what James chapter 4,and 6 says; James chapter 4,
  • 00:05:51.553 --> 00:05:53.922
  • and 6.
  • 00:05:53.955 --> 00:05:55.323
  • O God, may people understand thepower of humility, the power of
  • 00:05:55.357 --> 00:06:00.429
  • just showing up, and examiningyourself, and being willing to
  • 00:06:00.462 --> 00:06:05.167
  • accept responsibility foryour own action, and--wow.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:09.538
  • Verse 6 says, "But hegiveth more grace."
  • 00:06:09.571 --> 00:06:12.207
  • He says, "Wherefore he saith,God resisteth the proud, but he
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:16.945
  • gives grace to the humble."
  • 00:06:16.978 --> 00:06:19.948
  • I want grace.
  • 00:06:19.981 --> 00:06:22.017
  • I want to humble myself.
  • 00:06:22.050 --> 00:06:24.052
  • I want to be able to look atmy life, not only my marriage
  • 00:06:24.085 --> 00:06:26.188
  • relationship, relationship withmy children, relationship with
  • 00:06:26.221 --> 00:06:28.824
  • people I know, with my church,with my God, with somebody of
  • 00:06:28.857 --> 00:06:34.496
  • another skin pigmentation.
  • 00:06:34.529 --> 00:06:37.632
  • I want to always be able to lookat myself first and to admit
  • 00:06:37.666 --> 00:06:42.804
  • where I missed it first.
  • 00:06:42.838 --> 00:06:45.474
  • I want to look at my life andnot be so quick to point a
  • 00:06:45.507 --> 00:06:48.477
  • finger at what somebody else hasdone to hurt me, but I want to
  • 00:06:48.510 --> 00:06:51.813
  • see what is it--you know, whatcould I have done differently?
  • 00:06:51.847 --> 00:06:55.784
  • What could I have done better?
  • 00:06:55.817 --> 00:06:57.986
  • What can I do now that's better?
  • 00:06:58.019 --> 00:07:01.256
  • That issue of humility, I think,brings about the reconciliation
  • 00:07:01.289 --> 00:07:04.759
  • that I'm preaching about.
  • 00:07:04.793 --> 00:07:06.862
  • Number five, reconciliationrequires and depends upon,
  • 00:07:06.895 --> 00:07:13.635
  • listen to this, vulnerability.
  • 00:07:13.668 --> 00:07:17.038
  • Reconciliation requires anddepends upon vulnerability.
  • 00:07:17.072 --> 00:07:22.177
  • Look at this in Genesis33, 4; look at Jacob here.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:25.947
  • This is powerful.
  • 00:07:25.981 --> 00:07:28.483
  • "And Esau ran to meet him, andembraced him, and fell on his
  • 00:07:28.517 --> 00:07:35.090
  • neck, and kissedhim: and they wept."
  • 00:07:35.123 --> 00:07:38.460
  • I need you to see who did that.
  • 00:07:38.493 --> 00:07:40.662
  • It was the one who was offended.
  • 00:07:40.695 --> 00:07:42.831
  • Esau ran to meet him, and Esauembraced them, and Esau fell on
  • 00:07:42.864 --> 00:07:51.640
  • his neck, and Esau kissedhim: and they wept.
  • 00:07:51.673 --> 00:07:55.911
  • He went from hunting him down,to kill him, to hating him, to
  • 00:07:55.944 --> 00:08:02.450
  • become invulnerable.
  • 00:08:02.484 --> 00:08:06.321
  • He could have said, "I'm notgoing to show you that I
  • 00:08:06.354 --> 00:08:08.590
  • miss you.
  • 00:08:08.623 --> 00:08:11.259
  • I want you to seethat I'm still mad.
  • 00:08:11.293 --> 00:08:13.428
  • I want you to seethat I'm still upset.
  • 00:08:13.461 --> 00:08:15.463
  • I want you to see I'm stillfeeling some kind of way."
  • 00:08:15.497 --> 00:08:18.867
  • But that act of humilitybought and opened the door
  • 00:08:18.900 --> 00:08:22.971
  • for vulnerability.
  • 00:08:23.004 --> 00:08:25.707
  • This is a pictureof vulnerability.
  • 00:08:25.740 --> 00:08:28.577
  • To embrace someone is to exposeyour heart, and to expose your
  • 00:08:28.610 --> 00:08:33.348
  • heart is to reveal your partin the damaged relationship to
  • 00:08:33.381 --> 00:08:38.553
  • redeem the hurt and thepain that you caused.
  • 00:08:38.587 --> 00:08:42.457
  • Reconciliation will never happenuntil the heart is exposed.
  • 00:08:42.490 --> 00:08:48.530
  • Admit that you were wrong.
  • 00:08:48.563 --> 00:08:52.634
  • Admit that you are wrong.
  • 00:08:52.667 --> 00:08:55.971
  • Somebody says, "Well, I don'tknow how this is going to happen
  • 00:08:56.004 --> 00:08:57.339
  • in our country."
  • 00:08:57.372 --> 00:08:58.740
  • I'll tell you why; becausethat pride is still there.
  • 00:08:58.773 --> 00:09:00.842
  • And I'm believing God that theHoly Ghost can show up and begin
  • 00:09:00.875 --> 00:09:03.445
  • to humble us.
  • 00:09:03.478 --> 00:09:05.146
  • I know we have to humbleourselves, but may he influence
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:09.384
  • us, may he help usto humble ourselves.
  • 00:09:09.417 --> 00:09:15.991
  • Now, there is a big warning herein opening your heart up because
  • 00:09:16.024 --> 00:09:19.327
  • whenever you expose your heart,you stand the chance of having
  • 00:09:19.361 --> 00:09:25.900
  • it broken again.
  • 00:09:25.934 --> 00:09:28.436
  • And that's there.
  • 00:09:28.470 --> 00:09:30.505
  • But the world--ourlife--life is full of risk.
  • 00:09:30.538 --> 00:09:34.009
  • And I'd rather take arisk on reconciliation.
  • 00:09:34.042 --> 00:09:37.979
  • You see, peoplewill disappoint you.
  • 00:09:38.013 --> 00:09:40.982
  • People will wreck your emotions.
  • 00:09:41.016 --> 00:09:44.152
  • People will be hateful.
  • 00:09:44.185 --> 00:09:46.521
  • People will be racist.
  • 00:09:46.554 --> 00:09:49.357
  • People will let you down.
  • 00:09:49.391 --> 00:09:52.360
  • So what does that mean?
  • 00:09:52.394 --> 00:09:54.696
  • Do you become an isolated hermitand just decide, "Well, I don't
  • 00:09:54.729 --> 00:10:00.502
  • want to have todeal with nobody.
  • 00:10:00.535 --> 00:10:03.405
  • I don't trust nobody.
  • 00:10:03.438 --> 00:10:05.540
  • I don't want to beinvolved with nobody.
  • 00:10:05.573 --> 00:10:08.476
  • I just don't deal with folks'cause I just don't want to
  • 00:10:08.510 --> 00:10:10.779
  • get hurt.
  • 00:10:10.812 --> 00:10:12.547
  • It ain't going to happen.
  • 00:10:12.580 --> 00:10:14.449
  • You did it to me one time.
  • 00:10:14.482 --> 00:10:16.451
  • You ain't going to do it again."
  • 00:10:16.484 --> 00:10:18.586
  • Ain't that sad?
  • 00:10:18.620 --> 00:10:20.922
  • Of human beings, you willbe most sad human being.
  • 00:10:20.955 --> 00:10:23.892
  • Are you allowing deep hurt fromthe past stop you from exposing
  • 00:10:23.925 --> 00:10:26.528
  • your heart?
  • 00:10:26.561 --> 00:10:30.665
  • God is a relational God.
  • 00:10:30.699 --> 00:10:33.201
  • God is for relationship.
  • 00:10:33.234 --> 00:10:35.403
  • God endorses relationships.
  • 00:10:35.437 --> 00:10:37.439
  • Relationships can be a bridgeto great benefits in your life.
  • 00:10:37.472 --> 00:10:41.276
  • You were never meant tobe without relationships.
  • 00:10:41.309 --> 00:10:46.715
  • "Well, I just don't want anotherrelationship 'cause every time I
  • 00:10:46.748 --> 00:10:49.551
  • get with a man, he always end updisappointing me like the
  • 00:10:49.584 --> 00:10:54.689
  • other one."
  • 00:10:54.723 --> 00:10:56.758
  • That's not the problem.
  • 00:10:56.791 --> 00:10:58.393
  • The problem is you just got tolearn how to pay attention to
  • 00:10:58.426 --> 00:11:00.228
  • the signals that you see atthe beginning that you
  • 00:11:00.261 --> 00:11:02.097
  • keep ignoring.
  • 00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:04.199
  • There are lots of signals youcan pay attention to, to be able
  • 00:11:04.232 --> 00:11:05.800
  • to know that this maybe a toxic relationship.
  • 00:11:05.834 --> 00:11:09.237
  • But don't let brokenness fromthe past cause you to not want
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:16.511
  • to have anything todo with relationships.
  • 00:11:16.544 --> 00:11:18.446
  • Relationships can be a bridgeto get you from one place to
  • 00:11:18.480 --> 00:11:20.482
  • another place in your life.
  • 00:11:20.515 --> 00:11:22.650
  • Relationships can be a blessing.
  • 00:11:22.684 --> 00:11:24.919
  • Relationships with a whiteman can be a blessing to you.
  • 00:11:24.953 --> 00:11:27.822
  • Relationships with a blackman can be a blessing to you.
  • 00:11:27.856 --> 00:11:30.525
  • Can't you see that's why Satanwants to divide people of
  • 00:11:30.558 --> 00:11:33.394
  • different skin pigmentation?
  • 00:11:33.428 --> 00:11:36.464
  • He wants to divide people thatcome from different cultures,
  • 00:11:36.498 --> 00:11:39.167
  • different ethnicities.
  • 00:11:39.200 --> 00:11:41.436
  • Why?
  • 00:11:41.469 --> 00:11:43.905
  • Because differences comingtogether will be a blessing.
  • 00:11:43.938 --> 00:11:48.009
  • Differences, the blessingof differences.
  • 00:11:48.042 --> 00:11:51.679
  • I see that you are difference,and I learn from your
  • 00:11:51.713 --> 00:11:53.782
  • difference, and all of a sudden,you--I learn you're strong in
  • 00:11:53.815 --> 00:11:56.684
  • that area than I am, and soyour strength will help me to
  • 00:11:56.718 --> 00:11:59.154
  • eliminate my weaknesses.
  • 00:11:59.187 --> 00:12:02.557
  • Don't be afraid ofdifferences, embrace them.
  • 00:12:02.590 --> 00:12:05.393
  • Embrace them.
  • 00:12:05.426 --> 00:12:07.395
  • Praise God.
  • 00:12:07.428 --> 00:12:09.697
  • I used to use this illustrationthat, you know--and it was a
  • 00:12:09.731 --> 00:12:12.133
  • little comical.
  • 00:12:12.167 --> 00:12:13.935
  • I don't know, today it mightoffend people, but whatever.
  • 00:12:13.968 --> 00:12:15.904
  • I used the illustration, I said,"You know, if you go to a mostly
  • 00:12:15.937 --> 00:12:17.972
  • white church, they clap on thefirst beat: let God arise and
  • 00:12:18.006 --> 00:12:22.210
  • enemies be scattered.
  • 00:12:22.243 --> 00:12:24.913
  • You go to a black church, theyclap on the second beat: let God
  • 00:12:24.946 --> 00:12:28.116
  • arise and enemies be scattered."
  • 00:12:28.149 --> 00:12:31.019
  • Boy, what would happen if youget that white church with that
  • 00:12:31.052 --> 00:12:33.354
  • black church?
  • 00:12:33.388 --> 00:12:35.156
  • You know what will happen?
  • 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:36.791
  • You won't miss a beat.
  • 00:12:36.825 --> 00:12:38.359
  • You won't miss a beat.
  • 00:12:38.393 --> 00:12:40.295
  • There is something that God hasput into place where he says,
  • 00:12:40.328 --> 00:12:44.098
  • "I'm going to letyou grow up here.
  • 00:12:44.132 --> 00:12:47.302
  • You're going to be in that area.
  • 00:12:47.335 --> 00:12:49.370
  • You're going togrow up like this.
  • 00:12:49.404 --> 00:12:51.172
  • You're going to grow up here.
  • 00:12:51.206 --> 00:12:53.007
  • Because when you cometogether, I'm going to use your
  • 00:12:53.041 --> 00:12:54.876
  • differences tostrengthen one another."
  • 00:12:54.909 --> 00:12:59.848
  • And here we are fightingbecause of differences.
  • 00:12:59.881 --> 00:13:04.452
  • Here we are madat the difference.
  • 00:13:04.485 --> 00:13:09.257
  • And instead of embracing thedifference--and I'm not talking
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.593
  • about, you know, pastors, "Well,I have a very diverse church;"
  • 00:13:11.626 --> 00:13:15.096
  • and you brag about how youpastor a diverse church.
  • 00:13:15.129 --> 00:13:17.265
  • It may be diverse as far aspeople sitting in the pews, but
  • 00:13:17.298 --> 00:13:22.170
  • I want to see how that diversityhas impacted the person
  • 00:13:22.203 --> 00:13:28.176
  • that's different.
  • 00:13:28.209 --> 00:13:30.411
  • I want to see how that diversityhas impacted you as a leader.
  • 00:13:30.445 --> 00:13:33.781
  • I want to see how that diversityhas impacted how you think and
  • 00:13:33.815 --> 00:13:38.253
  • how decisions are made.
  • 00:13:38.286 --> 00:13:42.056
  • I don't want to just seediversity in the--amongst
  • 00:13:42.090 --> 00:13:47.495
  • the congregation.
  • 00:13:47.528 --> 00:13:49.430
  • I want to see diversityamongst your leadership.
  • 00:13:49.464 --> 00:13:52.367
  • Not just diversity in thepulpit, not just diversity in
  • 00:13:52.400 --> 00:13:54.869
  • the choir stand, but I want tosee diversity in the boardroom.
  • 00:13:54.903 --> 00:13:58.239
  • I want to see diversity in theconfrontations where, you know,
  • 00:13:58.273 --> 00:14:02.810
  • a black might understand it thisway and a white might understand
  • 00:14:02.844 --> 00:14:05.446
  • it this way, and they get totalking, and man, they've gotten
  • 00:14:05.480 --> 00:14:08.016
  • a godly way of howto handle a thing.
  • 00:14:08.049 --> 00:14:10.718
  • You see what the enemyis trying to destroy?
  • 00:14:10.752 --> 00:14:13.488
  • What makes this country agreat country is the fact that
  • 00:14:13.521 --> 00:14:16.991
  • regardless of where you've comefrom, the color of your skin,
  • 00:14:17.025 --> 00:14:20.628
  • that when you come together,you should be considered as
  • 00:14:20.662 --> 00:14:23.097
  • Americans as we share ideas, andwe share cultures, and we share
  • 00:14:23.131 --> 00:14:27.235
  • all the beauty ofour differences.
  • 00:14:27.268 --> 00:14:30.738
  • And we are letting the enemy robus of eliminating our weakness
  • 00:14:30.772 --> 00:14:36.678
  • by being angry at someonebecause of the difference that
  • 00:14:36.711 --> 00:14:40.381
  • they have.
  • 00:14:40.415 --> 00:14:42.383
  • That's got to stop,that's got to stop.
  • 00:14:42.417 --> 00:14:44.319
  • So relationships can be abridge; something that can be a
  • 00:14:44.352 --> 00:14:47.789
  • blessing to your life.
  • 00:14:47.822 --> 00:14:49.824
  • So are you willingto become vulnerable?
  • 00:14:49.857 --> 00:14:53.094
  • Are you willing tobecome vulnerable?
  • 00:14:53.127 --> 00:14:57.565
  • Number six, Genesis 33, and 4,once again, he said, "And Esau
  • 00:14:57.598 --> 00:15:02.804
  • ran to him, he met him, heembraced him, he fell on his
  • 00:15:02.837 --> 00:15:06.307
  • neck, he kissed him,and they both wept."
  • 00:15:06.341 --> 00:15:10.645
  • It's safe to say thatforgiveness took place here.
  • 00:15:10.678 --> 00:15:14.048
  • Reconciliationrequires forgiveness.
  • 00:15:14.082 --> 00:15:18.252
  • Reconciliationrequires forgiveness.
  • 00:15:18.286 --> 00:15:20.989
  • Forgiveness is not optionalin reconciling a
  • 00:15:21.022 --> 00:15:23.858
  • broken relationship.
  • 00:15:23.891 --> 00:15:26.294
  • Reconciliationrequires forgiveness.
  • 00:15:26.327 --> 00:15:28.596
  • You know, you can't say, "Well,you know, I don't want to break
  • 00:15:28.629 --> 00:15:31.265
  • up, but I don't trust you and Idon't forgive you, but I'm going
  • 00:15:31.299 --> 00:15:36.237
  • to stay here."
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:37.939
  • That's miserable existence.
  • 00:15:37.972 --> 00:15:39.607
  • Reconciliation requiresforgiveness, and forgiveness
  • 00:15:39.640 --> 00:15:42.977
  • involves letting go so you canget on with the rest of
  • 00:15:43.011 --> 00:15:46.681
  • your life.
  • 00:15:46.714 --> 00:15:48.449
  • That's what I'm trying to say.
  • 00:15:48.483 --> 00:15:50.118
  • "Let go so I can get onwith the rest of my life.
  • 00:15:50.151 --> 00:15:52.186
  • Let go, let go."
  • 00:15:52.220 --> 00:15:53.921
  • You let go so you can get onwith the rest of your life.
  • 00:15:53.955 --> 00:15:56.624
  • Are you being held back whenyou could be getting on with the
  • 00:15:56.657 --> 00:15:59.527
  • rest of your life?
  • 00:15:59.560 --> 00:16:01.996
  • You know just like I know, youcan't change everybody, but you
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:05.166
  • also know like I know thateverybody's not the same.
  • 00:16:05.199 --> 00:16:09.704
  • You know good and well that notall white people are the same.
  • 00:16:09.737 --> 00:16:13.808
  • You know good and well that allblack people are not the same.
  • 00:16:13.841 --> 00:16:17.078
  • You know good and well that allwomen are not the same and all
  • 00:16:17.111 --> 00:16:19.814
  • men are not the same.
  • 00:16:19.847 --> 00:16:21.582
  • Come on, wake up.
  • 00:16:21.616 --> 00:16:24.819
  • Forgiveness involves letting go.
  • 00:16:24.852 --> 00:16:29.190
  • It's not probation,but it's a pardon.
  • 00:16:29.223 --> 00:16:35.763
  • And when you forgive andreconciliation, you pardon
  • 00:16:35.797 --> 00:16:38.666
  • that person.
  • 00:16:38.699 --> 00:16:41.269
  • You don't put them on probation.
  • 00:16:41.302 --> 00:16:43.037
  • "I'm going to forgive you rightnow, but I'm watching you."
  • 00:16:43.071 --> 00:16:45.206
  • That's not forgiveness.
  • 00:16:45.239 --> 00:16:47.408
  • That's not forgiveness.
  • 00:16:47.442 --> 00:16:49.243
  • They are having to pay inorder to get your forgiveness.
  • 00:16:49.277 --> 00:16:51.946
  • It's not probation,it's a pardon.
  • 00:16:51.979 --> 00:16:55.516
  • It means that there will beno continuing resentment.
  • 00:16:55.550 --> 00:16:58.886
  • It means there will beno continuous bitterness.
  • 00:16:58.920 --> 00:17:03.224
  • Forgiveness is a longhealing, not a momentary one.
  • 00:17:03.257 --> 00:17:08.296
  • It's a long healing.
  • 00:17:08.329 --> 00:17:10.932
  • It's not that whathappened just that day.
  • 00:17:10.965 --> 00:17:12.800
  • It's being healedthroughout that process.
  • 00:17:12.834 --> 00:17:14.869
  • And listen, when will youlet go of those past hurts?
  • 00:17:14.902 --> 00:17:19.173
  • I'm not going to do that.
  • 00:17:19.207 --> 00:17:22.410
  • I'm not going to be holding onto those past hurts, letting
  • 00:17:22.443 --> 00:17:25.046
  • them stress me out, letting themcause me to look older and to be
  • 00:17:25.079 --> 00:17:28.716
  • older, and eventually diseaseand this diseasement comes into
  • 00:17:28.749 --> 00:17:33.054
  • my life 'cause I can't letsomething go that happened 20
  • 00:17:33.087 --> 00:17:35.323
  • years ago, 30 years ago.
  • 00:17:35.356 --> 00:17:37.291
  • "Yeah, Brother Dollaryou don't understand.
  • 00:17:37.325 --> 00:17:39.127
  • You just got to deal with it."
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:40.928
  • I know you got to deal withit, but you deal with it in the
  • 00:17:40.962 --> 00:17:44.465
  • right way.
  • 00:17:44.499 --> 00:17:46.701
  • You deal with it in some of theways I've been teaching you
  • 00:17:46.734 --> 00:17:49.103
  • this morning.
  • 00:17:49.137 --> 00:17:51.606
  • But what you don't do ismaintain the hate, maintain the
  • 00:17:51.639 --> 00:17:54.108
  • unforgiveness, maintain thebitterness, maintain the strife.
  • 00:17:54.142 --> 00:17:59.080
  • Let me show you something.
  • 00:17:59.113 --> 00:18:00.948
  • Go to Ephesians chapter 27.
  • 00:18:00.982 --> 00:18:04.352
  • I thought aboutthis, this morning.
  • 00:18:04.385 --> 00:18:09.757
  • In fact, move up to verse 26.
  • 00:18:09.790 --> 00:18:15.930
  • I want you to just thinkabout this for a moment.
  • 00:18:15.963 --> 00:18:19.834
  • Ephesians chapter 4, and 26, hesays in verse 26, "Be ye angry,
  • 00:18:19.867 --> 00:18:25.773
  • and sin not."
  • 00:18:25.806 --> 00:18:30.311
  • Okay, people get angry.
  • 00:18:30.344 --> 00:18:32.446
  • Even God got angry.
  • 00:18:32.480 --> 00:18:34.182
  • Jesus got angry.
  • 00:18:34.215 --> 00:18:35.816
  • He says, "Be yeangry, but sin not."
  • 00:18:35.850 --> 00:18:39.053
  • He said, "Let not the sun godown upon your wrath: neither to
  • 00:18:39.086 --> 00:18:45.059
  • give place to the devil."
  • 00:18:45.092 --> 00:18:48.062
  • See, when your anger gives placeto the devil, and you act out on
  • 00:18:48.095 --> 00:18:51.432
  • that anger, see, that's whyyou--see, Christian people, this
  • 00:18:51.465 --> 00:18:55.369
  • should be enough for you, butpeople who don't believe in God,
  • 00:18:55.403 --> 00:18:57.838
  • that's why we have to have laws.
  • 00:18:57.872 --> 00:19:00.675
  • The law is for thosewho don't believe God.
  • 00:19:00.708 --> 00:19:04.478
  • That's why we have to have laws.
  • 00:19:04.512 --> 00:19:06.314
  • That's why we have to have lawsthat will enforce justice and
  • 00:19:06.347 --> 00:19:10.017
  • laws that will enforce equality.
  • 00:19:10.051 --> 00:19:12.753
  • And that's why we have to havethose things for people who
  • 00:19:12.787 --> 00:19:15.022
  • don't believe God.
  • 00:19:15.056 --> 00:19:17.358
  • But for people who do believeGod, he says, "Don't allow the
  • 00:19:17.391 --> 00:19:20.027
  • anger to bring you to a placewhere you're giving place to
  • 00:19:20.061 --> 00:19:26.000
  • the devil."
  • 00:19:26.033 --> 00:19:28.369
  • And then verse 30, look at verse30: "And grieve not the Holy
  • 00:19:28.402 --> 00:19:32.406
  • Spirit of God, whereby youare sealed unto the day
  • 00:19:32.440 --> 00:19:35.276
  • of redemption."
  • 00:19:35.309 --> 00:19:37.845
  • You know what grievesthe Spirit of God?
  • 00:19:37.878 --> 00:19:39.714
  • Look at this verse 31: "Letall bitterness, and wrath, and
  • 00:19:39.747 --> 00:19:42.650
  • anger, and clamor, and evilspeaking, be put away from you,
  • 00:19:42.683 --> 00:19:46.787
  • with all malice."
  • 00:19:46.821 --> 00:19:49.390
  • You know what he said?
  • 00:19:49.423 --> 00:19:51.325
  • He said how you treat peoplegrieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:19:51.359 --> 00:19:53.094
  • Now I'm talking tothe church right now.
  • 00:19:53.127 --> 00:19:54.895
  • How you treat peoplegrieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:19:54.929 --> 00:19:56.998
  • How you treat peoplegrieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:19:57.031 --> 00:19:59.433
  • You walk into church, and youare a black person, and the
  • 00:19:59.467 --> 00:20:02.270
  • usher sits you right besidesomebody, a Hispanic, and you
  • 00:20:02.303 --> 00:20:06.340
  • ask the usher, "Move me.
  • 00:20:06.374 --> 00:20:07.975
  • I want to sit bya black person."
  • 00:20:08.009 --> 00:20:09.710
  • That's racist in another shell,in another color; and that
  • 00:20:09.744 --> 00:20:11.812
  • grieves the Holy Spirit,how you treat one another.
  • 00:20:11.846 --> 00:20:15.850
  • It grieves the Holy Spirit whena white man continues to walk in
  • 00:20:15.883 --> 00:20:20.788
  • that same hurt and hate;how you treat one another.
  • 00:20:20.821 --> 00:20:25.860
  • It doesn't matter thecolor or pigmentation.
  • 00:20:25.893 --> 00:20:27.962
  • It grieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:27.995 --> 00:20:29.864
  • I'm talking to Christian people.
  • 00:20:29.897 --> 00:20:31.465
  • I'm talking to the church.
  • 00:20:31.499 --> 00:20:33.067
  • I ain't talking--I'm talkingnot talking to the world.
  • 00:20:33.100 --> 00:20:34.869
  • I'm talking to folks who cometo church and say, "Hallelujah,"
  • 00:20:34.902 --> 00:20:37.204
  • and carry racism in their heart;it grieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:37.238 --> 00:20:43.344
  • And you're trying to figure outwhy the Scripture ain't working.
  • 00:20:43.377 --> 00:20:46.981
  • It's grieving the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:47.014 --> 00:20:49.350
  • It grieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:49.383 --> 00:20:52.286
  • Well, what's the answer to this?
  • 00:20:52.320 --> 00:20:54.388
  • How do I deal with this?
  • 00:20:54.422 --> 00:20:56.490
  • The very next verse, "Beye kind one to another, be
  • 00:20:56.524 --> 00:21:00.695
  • tenderhearted, forgive oneanother, even as God for
  • 00:21:00.728 --> 00:21:04.765
  • Christ's sake has forgiven us."
  • 00:21:04.799 --> 00:21:11.339
  • You don't understand.
  • 00:21:11.372 --> 00:21:13.374
  • All of us were supposed to goto hell; every last one of us.
  • 00:21:13.407 --> 00:21:17.044
  • I don't care how good youthought you were, all of us were
  • 00:21:17.078 --> 00:21:20.247
  • destined to hell, butGod in Christ forgave us.
  • 00:21:20.281 --> 00:21:24.418
  • He forgave us.
  • 00:21:24.452 --> 00:21:26.821
  • And your emotions just--theyjust won't let you see how
  • 00:21:26.854 --> 00:21:30.558
  • powerful that is.
  • 00:21:30.591 --> 00:21:33.160
  • You're so stuck on yourself.
  • 00:21:33.194 --> 00:21:35.763
  • You're so self-centered.
  • 00:21:35.796 --> 00:21:37.765
  • You know self-centerednessis the key to bitterness?
  • 00:21:37.798 --> 00:21:40.668
  • All you can think about isyou, all you can think about is
  • 00:21:40.701 --> 00:21:44.338
  • yourself and how this affectsyou, and all you can do is go
  • 00:21:44.372 --> 00:21:49.477
  • around and want to hold somebodyaccountable for taking care
  • 00:21:49.510 --> 00:21:52.346
  • of you.
  • 00:21:52.380 --> 00:21:54.815
  • Accepting responsibility foryour own action, accepting
  • 00:21:54.849 --> 00:21:59.954
  • responsibility to work hardeven when you're being denied by
  • 00:21:59.987 --> 00:22:03.924
  • racism and inequality, thatyou do what you got to do.
  • 00:22:03.958 --> 00:22:07.428
  • We've done that as blackpeople for a long time.
  • 00:22:07.461 --> 00:22:09.397
  • Why should you stop right now?
  • 00:22:09.430 --> 00:22:12.166
  • We can come up with every lawthat you tell them to make, and
  • 00:22:12.199 --> 00:22:15.669
  • you're still going tohave to put in the work.
  • 00:22:15.703 --> 00:22:18.072
  • You're still going to haveto do what's necessary.
  • 00:22:18.105 --> 00:22:20.741
  • You're still going to have tounderstand that when you have a
  • 00:22:20.775 --> 00:22:23.210
  • child, you need to stay athome with that child because
  • 00:22:23.244 --> 00:22:27.281
  • fatherlessness isruining our people.
  • 00:22:27.314 --> 00:22:32.586
  • It's ruining a lot of people.
  • 00:22:32.620 --> 00:22:34.288
  • It's not just a black problem.
  • 00:22:34.321 --> 00:22:35.923
  • It's a human problem.
  • 00:22:35.956 --> 00:22:38.392
  • It's important that youunderstand that sex out of
  • 00:22:38.426 --> 00:22:42.229
  • marriage could put you in aposition where you're a father
  • 00:22:42.263 --> 00:22:45.332
  • before you need to be one.
  • 00:22:45.366 --> 00:22:48.636
  • It could put you in a positionwhere you got to control your
  • 00:22:48.669 --> 00:22:51.472
  • emotions so you don't getyourself in a situation where
  • 00:22:51.505 --> 00:22:54.208
  • something happens to you andyou end up going to jail
  • 00:22:54.241 --> 00:22:57.578
  • or something.
  • 00:22:57.611 --> 00:22:59.947
  • And I know there's a lot ofproblems in the middle of all
  • 00:22:59.980 --> 00:23:02.082
  • what I'm talking about, but I'msaying we as a people, when will
  • 00:23:02.116 --> 00:23:07.721
  • we accept the fullresponsibility?
  • 00:23:07.755 --> 00:23:11.158
  • Yes, we got issues right now.
  • 00:23:11.192 --> 00:23:13.027
  • We got inequality right now.
  • 00:23:13.060 --> 00:23:14.662
  • We got people being killedby policemen right now.
  • 00:23:14.695 --> 00:23:17.832
  • We got a whole new agendawe got to deal with.
  • 00:23:17.865 --> 00:23:20.267
  • But I'm talking about after wedeal with all of that, we still
  • 00:23:20.301 --> 00:23:22.703
  • got to deal with theissues we have in our race.
  • 00:23:22.736 --> 00:23:28.809
  • Soon I'm going to teach youwhat most black people don't
  • 00:23:28.843 --> 00:23:35.082
  • even know.
  • 00:23:35.115 --> 00:23:36.750
  • But do you know there wereblack slave owners in the 1600s?
  • 00:23:36.784 --> 00:23:46.360
  • There were slaves who used tobe slaves, got out of slavery,
  • 00:23:46.393 --> 00:23:51.499
  • became slave owners, andenslaved other people.
  • 00:23:51.532 --> 00:23:54.468
  • How does that happen?
  • 00:23:54.502 --> 00:23:56.103
  • That's like black on blackcrime all over again.
  • 00:23:56.136 --> 00:23:58.672
  • How does that happen?
  • 00:23:58.706 --> 00:24:01.642
  • I may not ever be able to changethat racist heart, but boy, I
  • 00:24:01.675 --> 00:24:06.413
