  • Creflo: See, I've learnedsomething about outfits.
  • 00:01:45.385 --> 00:01:47.587
  • If you can't wear it inconfidence, you don't need to
  • 00:01:47.620 --> 00:01:49.923
  • wear it.
  • 00:01:49.956 --> 00:01:51.591
  • I learned that from Taffi.
  • 00:01:51.624 --> 00:01:53.359
  • If you can't wear it inconfidence, don't put it on.
  • 00:01:53.393 --> 00:01:55.328
  • Don't put it on.
  • 00:01:55.361 --> 00:01:57.297
  • See, I'm wearin' thispink in confidence.
  • 00:01:57.330 --> 00:01:59.232
  • I already know I'm aman, you understand?
  • 00:01:59.265 --> 00:02:00.767
  • So I'm wearin' thispink in confidence.
  • 00:02:00.800 --> 00:02:02.669
  • You understand.
  • 00:02:02.702 --> 00:02:04.537
  • But a long time ago, Icouldn't wear it in confidence.
  • 00:02:04.571 --> 00:02:06.639
  • You understand what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:02:06.673 --> 00:02:08.441
  • Wearin' it inconfidence right now.
  • 00:02:08.474 --> 00:02:10.510
  • If you don't believein it, don't wear it.
  • 00:02:10.543 --> 00:02:15.548
  • And sometimes fear will stop youfrom operating in the confidence
  • 00:02:15.582 --> 00:02:22.055
  • and the belief of what Jesus hasalready done, and I'm tellin'
  • 00:02:22.088 --> 00:02:25.792
  • you, it's time for you to startwearing Christ, hallelujah, and
  • 00:02:25.825 --> 00:02:29.128
  • being confident that, no matterwhat the doctor saw or what the
  • 00:02:29.162 --> 00:02:32.098
  • X-ray saw, I can wear thisin confidence, "I am healed.
  • 00:02:32.131 --> 00:02:36.269
  • I am delivered.
  • 00:02:36.302 --> 00:02:38.238
  • Hallelujah, I'm set freebecause of who Jesus is in
  • 00:02:38.271 --> 00:02:40.340
  • my life."
  • 00:02:40.373 --> 00:02:45.278
  • Amen.
  • 00:02:45.311 --> 00:02:50.083
  • "Seeing therefore," verse 6, itremaineth that some must enter
  • 00:02:50.116 --> 00:02:54.821
  • therein, and they to whom it wasfirst preached entered not in--"
  • 00:02:54.854 --> 00:02:58.958
  • They didn't enter into the rest.
  • 00:02:58.992 --> 00:03:00.326
  • Why?
  • 00:03:00.360 --> 00:03:01.728
  • "'Cause of unbelief."
  • 00:03:01.761 --> 00:03:03.329
  • That's fear-based.
  • 00:03:03.363 --> 00:03:04.731
  • "'Cause of unbelief."
  • 00:03:04.764 --> 00:03:06.332
  • What are you afraid of that'skeeping you in unbelief?
  • 00:03:06.366 --> 00:03:09.002
  • "I just don't believe that.
  • 00:03:11.137 --> 00:03:13.339
  • I just don't believe that."
  • 00:03:13.373 --> 00:03:16.042
  • Honey, if you're hangin' aroundsomeone that's always making you
  • 00:03:16.075 --> 00:03:19.879
  • feel bad about yourself, thatis a toxic relationship that you
  • 00:03:19.912 --> 00:03:23.850
  • need to end.
  • 00:03:23.883 --> 00:03:28.321
  • We are so inundated by theattitudes that this world has
  • 00:03:34.727 --> 00:03:40.199
  • shaped, and we take itas if it's our Bible.
  • 00:03:40.233 --> 00:03:47.273
  • We gotta stop that.
  • 00:03:47.307 --> 00:03:49.909
  • Who has offended you andblocked your anointing?
  • 00:03:49.942 --> 00:03:55.548
  • Who has offended you and gottenin the way of the path that God
  • 00:03:55.581 --> 00:03:59.752
  • has planned for your life, andyou can't hardly go down the
  • 00:03:59.786 --> 00:04:02.955
  • path 'cause you got somuch junk in your path?
  • 00:04:02.989 --> 00:04:11.597
  • What are you worried about?
  • 00:04:11.631 --> 00:04:14.133
  • You gotta get to the point--thereason why I keep talkin' about
  • 00:04:14.167 --> 00:04:16.402
  • you gotta learn how to be okaywith you and you gotta learn how
  • 00:04:16.436 --> 00:04:18.871
  • to like yourself, 'cause yougotta stop being afraid of what
  • 00:04:18.905 --> 00:04:23.543
  • people think about you, and yougotta be so cool with you that
  • 00:04:23.576 --> 00:04:27.747
  • you don't mind being with you.
  • 00:04:27.780 --> 00:04:34.687
  • And the guy that you wanna bewith that don't wanna be with
  • 00:04:39.659 --> 00:04:42.161
  • you, your attitude has got tobe "He don't even know what
  • 00:04:42.195 --> 00:04:44.063
  • he missin'.
  • 00:04:44.097 --> 00:04:46.933
  • Boy, you don't have thischance but one time."
  • 00:04:46.966 --> 00:04:49.402
  • I'mma show you whatI'mma be workin' with.
  • 00:04:49.435 --> 00:04:51.437
  • "Boy, you ain't gotthis but one time.
  • 00:04:51.471 --> 00:04:53.473
  • Hey, when I'm through withyou, I'm through with you."
  • 00:04:53.506 --> 00:04:55.241
  • You gotta have that kind ofconfidence, and it draws the
  • 00:04:55.274 --> 00:04:58.478
  • right kind of man.
  • 00:04:58.511 --> 00:05:00.847
  • It draws the rightkind of woman.
  • 00:05:00.880 --> 00:05:02.815
  • Nobody wants a sickly, brokenperson that don't even believe
  • 00:05:02.849 --> 00:05:08.321
  • in what they got to bring to thetable, and you have somethin' to
  • 00:05:08.354 --> 00:05:11.758
  • bring to the table.
  • 00:05:11.791 --> 00:05:13.559
  • You're just too afraid to bringsomethin' to the table that's
  • 00:05:13.593 --> 00:05:16.095
  • authentically you.
  • 00:05:16.129 --> 00:05:18.164
  • You've been spendin' your life,all your life, with the cheap
  • 00:05:18.197 --> 00:05:20.666
  • imitation while youignore the valuable you.
  • 00:05:20.700 --> 00:05:24.670
  • Can't nobody be you.
  • 00:05:24.704 --> 00:05:27.306
  • Can't nobody--no matter how theytry, can't nobody be like you.
  • 00:05:27.340 --> 00:05:32.645
  • So go ahead and be you, girl.
  • 00:05:32.678 --> 00:05:35.314
  • Go ahead and be you, guy.
  • 00:05:35.348 --> 00:05:38.284
  • Like I told you lastweek, I started dancin'.
  • 00:05:41.154 --> 00:05:43.289
  • I don't care what nobodysay about my dance.
  • 00:05:43.322 --> 00:05:51.531
  • I didn't do it for them.
  • 00:05:51.564 --> 00:05:58.471
  • And, by the way, like Taffiand I were talkin', that was a
  • 00:05:58.504 --> 00:06:00.673
  • Christian song while you werejudgin' me and talkin' about me,
  • 00:06:00.706 --> 00:06:02.775
  • and that was a Christian songI was dancin' to, so what's the
  • 00:06:02.809 --> 00:06:04.677
  • difference between you dancin'to a Christian song and doin'
  • 00:06:04.710 --> 00:06:07.313
  • like that, like somethin' wrongwith ya, and me just chillin' it
  • 00:06:07.346 --> 00:06:10.416
  • down on the Christian song?
  • 00:06:10.450 --> 00:06:13.252
  • Hey, is it still praise?
  • 00:06:13.286 --> 00:06:15.488
  • Is God stillreceivin' it as dance?
  • 00:06:15.521 --> 00:06:18.424
  • "Well, that's just too worldly."
  • 00:06:18.458 --> 00:06:20.593
  • What is "worldly"?
  • 00:06:20.626 --> 00:06:22.662
  • According to 1 John, "worldly"is the lust of the eyes, the
  • 00:06:22.695 --> 00:06:25.832
  • lust of the flesh,and the pride of life.
  • 00:06:25.865 --> 00:06:29.101
  • And as long as I ain't got thelust of the eyes and the lust of
  • 00:06:29.135 --> 00:06:32.071
  • the flesh and the pride of thelife while I'm doin' what
  • 00:06:32.104 --> 00:06:34.874
  • I'm doin'--
  • 00:06:34.907 --> 00:06:39.078
  • What're you talkin'about "worldly"?
  • 00:06:39.111 --> 00:06:43.483
  • So I gotta look like I'm havinga catabolic fit in order for it
  • 00:06:43.516 --> 00:06:46.853
  • to be church dancin'?
  • 00:06:46.886 --> 00:06:49.989
  • I gotta--oh--in orderfor it to be right?
  • 00:06:50.022 --> 00:06:56.095
  • I mean, you can'tbe cool and dance?
  • 00:06:56.128 --> 00:06:59.765
  • "Praise the Lord, hey.
  • 00:06:59.799 --> 00:07:02.101
  • Praise the Lord, hey.
  • 00:07:02.134 --> 00:07:04.437
  • Hey, praise the Lord."
  • 00:07:04.470 --> 00:07:06.739
  • God don't see that'cause it's not--
  • 00:07:06.772 --> 00:07:10.343
  • Stop it, do you understand?
  • 00:07:15.615 --> 00:07:17.783
  • This stuff that we're doing thatJesus doesn't even understand
  • 00:07:17.817 --> 00:07:20.553
  • it--if Jesus were to come backtoday, we would have to explain
  • 00:07:20.586 --> 00:07:24.323
  • to him so much of the stuff thatchurch created that he like,
  • 00:07:24.357 --> 00:07:28.728
  • "What's that?
  • 00:07:28.761 --> 00:07:30.363
  • What they doin'?
  • 00:07:30.396 --> 00:07:31.964
  • How come they didthat right there?
  • 00:07:31.998 --> 00:07:33.699
  • Who them people that showup, people they say--ushers?
  • 00:07:33.733 --> 00:07:35.668
  • What's all that?"
  • 00:07:35.701 --> 00:07:37.336
  • He don't know nothin' about allthat stuff 'cause we've
  • 00:07:37.370 --> 00:07:38.804
  • created "church."
  • 00:07:38.838 --> 00:07:42.909
  • And I'm tired of playin' church.
  • 00:07:46.078 --> 00:07:49.382
  • I finally discover who I am, andI'm gonna be who I am, and me
  • 00:07:49.415 --> 00:07:55.021
  • and my wife are gon' have agood time, and you can call it
  • 00:07:55.054 --> 00:07:58.558
  • "worldly" if you want to.
  • 00:07:58.591 --> 00:08:00.826
  • Welcome to our world.
  • 00:08:00.860 --> 00:08:05.398
  • But you better learnhow to be free.
  • 00:08:05.431 --> 00:08:08.100
  • All religious Christianity is,is a bunch of people under fear,
  • 00:08:08.134 --> 00:08:11.404
  • who don't really believe whatJesus has already done, and
  • 00:08:11.437 --> 00:08:17.443
  • you're struggling to try toresolve your own issues and
  • 00:08:17.476 --> 00:08:24.784
  • wanna judge everybodyelse who are not like you.
  • 00:08:24.817 --> 00:08:29.522
  • I didn't have a mic so, "bam."
  • 00:08:43.235 --> 00:08:47.473
  • We need to be at peace, andthat's gonna start with us being
  • 00:08:50.876 --> 00:08:54.847
  • at peace with who we are.
  • 00:08:54.880 --> 00:08:58.718
  • You do know that, don't you?
  • 00:08:58.751 --> 00:09:00.553
  • It's gonna start with you beingokay with you, when you can go
  • 00:09:00.586 --> 00:09:02.888
  • home--listen, when you can goout to eat with yourself and
  • 00:09:02.922 --> 00:09:07.259
  • treat yourself to a movie withsome popcorn--y'all didn't hear
  • 00:09:07.293 --> 00:09:10.763
  • what I'm sayin'--
  • 00:09:10.796 --> 00:09:14.200
  • And enjoy your extra calorieswithout somebody tellin' you
  • 00:09:15.901 --> 00:09:19.472
  • that you ought not to have thisbecause you know you're a
  • 00:09:19.505 --> 00:09:21.440
  • little overweight.
  • 00:09:21.474 --> 00:09:23.009
  • Well, I'm fine with bein'a little overweight.
  • 00:09:23.042 --> 00:09:24.377
  • Are you fine?
  • 00:09:24.410 --> 00:09:25.778
  • I mean, I'm--and then, you know,if you're a little overweight,
  • 00:09:25.811 --> 00:09:27.113
  • you still, "I'm fine."
  • 00:09:27.146 --> 00:09:29.515
  • I'm probably gonna leave afterthis, like, "Oh, my God, I can't
  • 00:09:36.622 --> 00:09:38.024
  • believe I said all that stuff."
  • 00:09:38.057 --> 00:09:40.159
  • Now look at this: He saidbecause--they couldn't enter
  • 00:09:42.361 --> 00:09:45.164
  • into rest 'causethey didn't believe.
  • 00:09:45.197 --> 00:09:48.634
  • They didn't believe in thefinished works of Jesus.
  • 00:09:48.668 --> 00:09:50.236
  • They didn't believe that theywere already made righteous
  • 00:09:50.269 --> 00:09:51.971
  • by Jesus.
  • 00:09:52.004 --> 00:09:53.472
  • They didn't believe thatthey were already healed
  • 00:09:53.506 --> 00:09:54.974
  • and delivered.
  • 00:09:55.007 --> 00:09:56.342
  • They didn't believe in theauthentic calling that God had
  • 00:09:56.375 --> 00:09:59.545
  • put on their life and destinedfor them to walk down the path
  • 00:09:59.578 --> 00:10:02.915
  • that he presented for them.
  • 00:10:02.948 --> 00:10:05.551
  • And because they didn't believe,they compared themselves amongst
  • 00:10:05.584 --> 00:10:08.821
  • themselves, tryin' their best totry to figure out what they're
  • 00:10:08.854 --> 00:10:11.657
  • supposed to do by seeing whatothers were doing and trying to
  • 00:10:11.691 --> 00:10:16.595
  • copy what they were doin' whilethey ignored the authentic road
  • 00:10:16.629 --> 00:10:21.367
  • that God had paved for them.
  • 00:10:21.400 --> 00:10:24.904
  • I want your authenticity.
  • 00:10:24.937 --> 00:10:27.840
  • I think somethin' happens ina community where people can
  • 00:10:27.873 --> 00:10:33.345
  • embrace the authentic you.
  • 00:10:33.379 --> 00:10:37.416
  • Do you understandwhat I'm sayin'?
  • 00:10:37.450 --> 00:10:39.785
  • I fell in love with my wifebecause of her authenticity.
  • 00:10:39.819 --> 00:10:43.522
  • Ain't nobody like Taffi Dollar.
  • 00:10:43.556 --> 00:10:46.459
  • She got to have a littlethrill in her life.
  • 00:10:46.492 --> 00:10:50.329
  • She got to have it.
  • 00:10:50.362 --> 00:10:52.298
  • We went somewhere, and somebodytold us about this place where
  • 00:10:52.331 --> 00:10:54.333
  • stingrays swim, and Taffi said,"I wanna go and swim with
  • 00:10:54.366 --> 00:10:58.471
  • the stingrays."
  • 00:10:58.504 --> 00:11:01.240
  • And I'm from Colli Park.
  • 00:11:01.273 --> 00:11:02.575
  • I don't believe in goin'to other people's house.
  • 00:11:02.608 --> 00:11:05.578
  • That's the stingrays' house.
  • 00:11:05.611 --> 00:11:06.979
  • I don't believe ingoin' to their house.
  • 00:11:07.012 --> 00:11:08.347
  • They ain't comin' in my house.
  • 00:11:08.380 --> 00:11:09.749
  • Why I'mma go in their house?
  • 00:11:09.782 --> 00:11:11.350
  • So we way out in the Atlantic,and we're on this reef, so, you
  • 00:11:11.383 --> 00:11:15.421
  • know, you're not, like,deep in the ocean.
  • 00:11:15.454 --> 00:11:17.123
  • You stand on the reef.
  • 00:11:17.156 --> 00:11:18.924
  • And Taffi's swimmin' withthe stingrays, and you get
  • 00:11:18.958 --> 00:11:25.297
  • some--what was it, octopus?
  • 00:11:25.331 --> 00:11:27.133
  • We were--and you just sharethe octopus, and they come all
  • 00:11:27.166 --> 00:11:29.835
  • around you, and get someoctopus, and Taffi's swimmin'
  • 00:11:29.869 --> 00:11:33.005
  • with the stingray.
  • 00:11:33.038 --> 00:11:34.373
  • Now, I was takin' pictures.
  • 00:11:34.406 --> 00:11:35.775
  • I ain't gettin' outthere with no stingray.
  • 00:11:35.808 --> 00:11:37.643
  • I said, "Smile, baby, smile.
  • 00:11:37.676 --> 00:11:40.312
  • Look at the stingray.
  • 00:11:40.346 --> 00:11:41.714
  • Look at my wifeand the stingrays.
  • 00:11:41.747 --> 00:11:43.315
  • Oh, look at her."
  • 00:11:43.349 --> 00:11:44.717
  • I ain't ready forno stingrays yet.
  • 00:11:44.750 --> 00:11:46.318
  • Man talkin' about "Kiss thestingrays, and you'll have seven
  • 00:11:46.352 --> 00:11:47.720
  • years of luck."
  • 00:11:47.753 --> 00:11:49.522
  • Well, I believe in theblessing, praise the Lord.
  • 00:11:49.555 --> 00:11:52.658
  • Middle of the day, I'm callin'.
  • 00:11:59.799 --> 00:12:01.333
  • "Taffi, where you at?"
  • 00:12:01.367 --> 00:12:02.735
  • "Oh, I'm about toget in a race car."
  • 00:12:02.768 --> 00:12:04.336
  • "Where are you?"
  • 00:12:04.370 --> 00:12:06.138
  • "I'm at a race track down here."
  • 00:12:06.172 --> 00:12:07.973
  • "Why are you at a race track?"
  • 00:12:08.007 --> 00:12:09.842
  • "I wanted to seehow fast I can go."
  • 00:12:09.875 --> 00:12:12.077
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:12:12.111 --> 00:12:15.147
  • We went somewhere, and she says,"I got this thing planned for
  • 00:12:24.256 --> 00:12:26.325
  • us to go in a cave."
  • 00:12:26.358 --> 00:12:27.860
  • "A cave?
  • 00:12:27.893 --> 00:12:30.696
  • What cave?
  • 00:12:30.729 --> 00:12:32.198
  • Where the cave at?
  • 00:12:32.231 --> 00:12:34.700
  • We have no cavesin College Park.
  • 00:12:34.733 --> 00:12:36.202
  • What am I doin' in a cave?"
  • 00:12:36.235 --> 00:12:38.137
  • Here we go again, invadin'somebody else's house.
  • 00:12:38.170 --> 00:12:41.507
  • And I'm like, "Okay,let's go in the cave.
  • 00:12:46.111 --> 00:12:47.947
  • I ain't like it."
  • 00:12:47.980 --> 00:12:49.315
  • I'm like, "I don't want no cave.
  • 00:12:49.348 --> 00:12:50.716
  • What we gon' bumpinto in a cave?"
  • 00:12:50.749 --> 00:12:52.451
  • So we got in the cave, and then,once we got in the cave, that
  • 00:12:52.484 --> 00:12:54.653
  • adventure park came out of me.
  • 00:12:54.687 --> 00:12:55.988
  • I said, "Oh, look at the cave."
  • 00:12:56.021 --> 00:12:57.690
  • And then we ran into a bigclutter of bats, and I said,
  • 00:12:57.723 --> 00:12:59.692
  • "Look at 'em them bats, Taffi."
  • 00:12:59.725 --> 00:13:01.327
  • Taffi said, "Oh, let's go."
  • 00:13:01.360 --> 00:13:02.728
  • And I thought, "Whatjust happened here?"
  • 00:13:02.761 --> 00:13:05.931
  • And then some lady bumped into asnake, and she said, "Ah!"
  • 00:13:09.468 --> 00:13:14.006
  • I said, "Seem like somebodyjust bumped into a snake."
  • 00:13:14.039 --> 00:13:15.608
  • She said, "Let's go.
  • 00:13:15.641 --> 00:13:17.443
  • I don't do stuff like that."
  • 00:13:17.476 --> 00:13:21.113
  • So I'm willin' to doany--whatever she's sayin' at
  • 00:13:21.146 --> 00:13:23.249
  • that vacation, and then shebrings up, "I got a submarine.
  • 00:13:23.282 --> 00:13:26.118
  • We gon' go downin the submarine."
  • 00:13:26.151 --> 00:13:28.487
  • "Is this a military submarine?
  • 00:13:28.520 --> 00:13:31.290
  • Is the Navy runnin' thissubmarine or just some guy that
  • 00:13:31.323 --> 00:13:34.460
  • works at the beach,runnin' the submarine?
  • 00:13:34.493 --> 00:13:37.129
  • I ain't goin' in no submarineoperated by some beach boy."
  • 00:13:37.162 --> 00:13:41.634
  • Something and all kind ofstuff--okay, so what did the--
  • 00:13:43.302 --> 00:13:45.170
  • "His submarine might be raggedy.
  • 00:13:45.204 --> 00:13:48.374
  • He might be on "E," when, youknow, we get on the submarine."
  • 00:13:48.407 --> 00:13:52.311
  • And I am on my phone, you know,callin' Big O and BK, "Hey,
  • 00:13:57.416 --> 00:14:01.520
  • bro, I need a little help."
  • 00:14:01.553 --> 00:14:03.322
  • "What's up?"
  • 00:14:03.355 --> 00:14:04.723
  • "Well, we're stuck at the bottomof the Atlantic Ocean in
  • 00:14:04.757 --> 00:14:06.959
  • a submarine.
  • 00:14:06.992 --> 00:14:08.727
  • Could y'all come and, you know,call Evander or somebody and
  • 00:14:08.761 --> 00:14:11.230
  • see if they can get somebody,to see who he know to get me out
  • 00:14:11.263 --> 00:14:13.365
  • this submarine?"
  • 00:14:13.399 --> 00:14:16.735
  • She's authentic, and thatauthenticity has brought out of
  • 00:14:16.769 --> 00:14:22.341
  • me some stuff I didn't know Iwould even enjoy or become a
  • 00:14:22.374 --> 00:14:28.180
  • part of because she's not busytrying to be like somebody else.
  • 00:14:28.213 --> 00:14:34.586
  • She has embraced her authenticself and has taught me how to
  • 00:14:34.620 --> 00:14:40.960
  • live and enjoy life.
  • 00:14:40.993 --> 00:14:44.964
  • Are you understandin'what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:14:46.332 --> 00:14:48.300
  • They didn't enter in becauseof unbelief, which is based
  • 00:14:56.542 --> 00:14:58.944
  • in fear.
  • 00:14:58.978 --> 00:15:00.312
  • What are you afraid of?
  • 00:15:00.346 --> 00:15:02.214
  • What's the fear that's stoppingyou from believing, that's
  • 00:15:02.247 --> 00:15:05.184
  • stopping you fromentering into the rest?
  • 00:15:05.217 --> 00:15:09.555
  • Verse 7, "Again, he limiteth acertain day, saying in David,
  • 00:15:09.588 --> 00:15:14.994
  • 'Today, after so long a time, asit is said, "Today if you will
  • 00:15:15.027 --> 00:15:18.364
  • hear his voice, don'tharden your hearts."'"
  • 00:15:18.397 --> 00:15:21.533
  • And verse 8, said,"For Jesus--"
  • 00:15:21.567 --> 00:15:26.939
  • I think here it's "Joshua."
  • 00:15:26.972 --> 00:15:29.575
  • They translate it from the Greekto "Jesus," which the Greek
  • 00:15:29.608 --> 00:15:34.713
  • is correct.
  • 00:15:34.747 --> 00:15:36.849
  • It's "Jesus," but it's nottalkin' about our Lord
  • 00:15:36.882 --> 00:15:38.484
  • and Savior.
  • 00:15:38.517 --> 00:15:40.486
  • It's talkin' about "Joshua hadgiven them rest," "If Joshua had
  • 00:15:40.519 --> 00:15:42.354
  • given them rest," and it's thechildren of Israel that he's
  • 00:15:42.388 --> 00:15:45.557
  • referring to, that Joshua hadgiven the children of Israel
  • 00:15:45.591 --> 00:15:48.093
  • rest, "then would he notafterwards have spoken of
  • 00:15:48.127 --> 00:15:50.696
  • another day."
  • 00:15:50.729 --> 00:15:52.698
  • Verse 9, "There remaineththerefore a rest to the people
  • 00:15:52.731 --> 00:15:55.601
  • of God."
  • 00:15:55.634 --> 00:15:57.536
  • 10, "For he that is entered intohis rest," here's what I want
  • 00:15:57.569 --> 00:16:01.707
  • you to see, "he's also ceasedfrom his own works," his own
  • 00:16:01.740 --> 00:16:06.378
  • performance, his ownself-effort, "as God did
  • 00:16:06.412 --> 00:16:10.916
  • from his."
  • 00:16:10.949 --> 00:16:13.652
  • How do I verify that youbelieve and enter into the rest?
  • 00:16:13.685 --> 00:16:16.655
  • You've ceased from tryin'to do it on your own.
  • 00:16:16.688 --> 00:16:21.427
  • Self-effort is dead.
  • 00:16:21.460 --> 00:16:23.929
  • You're not tryin' to get healedthrough your own self-effort.
  • 00:16:23.962 --> 00:16:26.432
  • You're not tryin' to berighteous through your
  • 00:16:26.465 --> 00:16:27.766
  • own self-effort.
  • 00:16:27.800 --> 00:16:29.701
  • You've ceased from that.
  • 00:16:29.735 --> 00:16:31.837
  • You believe in the finishedworks of Jesus Christ, and
  • 00:16:31.870 --> 00:16:34.306
  • because of your belief in JesusChrist, you've entered into
  • 00:16:34.339 --> 00:16:37.109
  • the rest.
  • 00:16:37.142 --> 00:16:39.478
  • And when people see you--you'renot this stressful, worry-filled
  • 00:16:39.511 --> 00:16:42.281
  • person--they pause, and theywonder, "What is it that they're
  • 00:16:42.314 --> 00:16:47.619
  • doing to be at rest in the midstof such a crazy situation?"
  • 00:16:47.653 --> 00:16:53.992
  • They believed God.
  • 00:16:54.026 --> 00:16:56.128
  • Now, the world's gonna getcrazier and crazier, but we
  • 00:16:56.161 --> 00:16:58.697
  • gotta be at rest.
  • 00:16:58.730 --> 00:17:00.866
  • Why?
  • 00:17:00.899 --> 00:17:03.202
  • It is the most powerful posturefor a Christian to be at rest.
  • 00:17:03.235 --> 00:17:08.340
  • When you're at rest, that'sthe highest kind of faith.
  • 00:17:08.373 --> 00:17:11.210
  • When you're at rest, that'sthe highest kind of faith.
  • 00:17:11.243 --> 00:17:13.912
  • You're talkin' about knowingthat you will walk in the
  • 00:17:13.946 --> 00:17:16.782
  • glorious manifestationsof his finished works.
  • 00:17:16.815 --> 00:17:19.618
  • When you're at rest, that's thehighest, highest kind of faith.
  • 00:17:19.651 --> 00:17:22.921
  • It's the most powerful positionthat a Christian could be in, is
  • 00:17:22.955 --> 00:17:26.792
  • that place of rest, and that'swhat the enemy is looking to
  • 00:17:26.825 --> 00:17:30.762
  • destroy in your life.
  • 00:17:30.796 --> 00:17:32.898
  • That's why he wants you worried.
  • 00:17:32.931 --> 00:17:34.733
  • That's why he wants you stressedout because, if he can keep you
  • 00:17:34.766 --> 00:17:37.136
  • worried and stressed and inunbelief and in fear, he can
  • 00:17:37.169 --> 00:17:39.872
  • stop you from being in the mostpowerful place for a Christian,
  • 00:17:39.905 --> 00:17:44.209
  • and that's the place of rest.
  • 00:17:44.243 --> 00:17:48.280
  • So you're not just,kind of, playin' around.
  • 00:17:48.313 --> 00:17:50.415
  • You're laboring to positionyourself in the most powerful
  • 00:17:50.449 --> 00:17:53.852
  • place you can be in as aChristian, a place of rest.
  • 00:17:53.886 --> 00:17:57.489
  • And you become a wonder tosomebody that can't figure out
  • 00:17:57.523 --> 00:18:00.359
  • why you're not upset.
  • 00:18:00.392 --> 00:18:02.094
  • "Didn't you hear what the doctorjust said about your health?"
  • 00:18:02.127 --> 00:18:04.062
  • You said, "I heard it, but I'vebeen listenin' to Jesus," and he
  • 00:18:04.096 --> 00:18:06.031
  • said, "I'm already healed," andthat the place of rest is the
  • 00:18:06.064 --> 00:18:09.301
  • most powerful place you can be,and he's tryin' to rob you of
  • 00:18:09.334 --> 00:18:14.339
  • that position.
  • 00:18:14.373 --> 00:18:17.276
  • And when you're walkin' aroundstressed and in unbelief and in
  • 00:18:17.309 --> 00:18:19.878
  • worry, you have been robbed fromthis place of power, from this
  • 00:18:19.912 --> 00:18:27.152
  • place where manifestationis not "if they show up."
  • 00:18:27.186 --> 00:18:30.289
  • They show up for thosewho are at rest.
  • 00:18:30.322 --> 00:18:34.226
  • Those who are at rest.
  • 00:18:38.363 --> 00:18:42.201
  • Come on, by faith, say it: "I'mat rest in the finished works
  • 00:18:42.234 --> 00:18:45.938
  • of Jesus."
  • 00:18:45.971 --> 00:18:50.275
  • God's always workingwhere someone's resting.
  • 00:18:50.309 --> 00:18:54.680
  • I'll show you a great pictureof labor and her rest.
  • 00:18:54.713 --> 00:18:56.915
  • You remember the Shulammitewoman when her son died?
  • 00:18:56.949 --> 00:19:01.353
  • He was dead, and she walks outto go look for the prophet, and
  • 00:19:01.386 --> 00:19:07.025
  • her husband said, "Sweetheart,is everything all right?"
  • 00:19:07.059 --> 00:19:09.895
  • And here's what she said.
  • 00:19:09.928 --> 00:19:11.496
  • It was a labor, but shesaid it: "All is well."
  • 00:19:11.530 --> 00:19:14.766
  • Oh, my God.
  • 00:19:14.800 --> 00:19:17.202
  • Oh, my God, "All is well."

  • Her fight and her work was tostay at rest in that promise,
  • 00:19:20.205 --> 00:19:25.544
  • and she went to see the prophet,and he's like, "What you
  • 00:19:25.577 --> 00:19:27.646
  • doin' here?"
  • 00:19:27.679 --> 00:19:30.082
  • "Oh, man of God," she shoutedout towards him, "All is well."
  • 00:19:30.115 --> 00:19:33.518

  • Do you know, most of themiracles Jesus did, he did on
  • 00:19:42.995 --> 00:19:45.030

  • 00:19:45.063 --> 00:19:47.332
  • You were created to work betterout of rest than out of stress,
  • 00:19:47.366 --> 00:19:53.572
  • and the enemy is trying torob you of being able to be

  • 00:20:04.116 --> 00:20:12.057
  • you're at rest, that's whenyou'll see God's best--not when
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:15.961
  • you're worried, not when you'recluttered, not when you're
  • 00:20:15.994 --> 00:20:18.697
  • tryin' to work real hardto get God to do somethin.
  • 00:20:18.730 --> 00:20:21.733
  • You called a 50-day fast'cause you're gonna make him

  • 00:20:25.103 --> 00:20:27.439
  • best, at rest, at rest.
  • 00:20:27.472 --> 00:20:31.276
  • I can no longer--watchthis--afford to be stressed out
  • 00:20:31.310 --> 00:20:35.981
  • over the financesof this ministry.
  • 00:20:36.014 --> 00:20:38.317
  • Why?
  • 00:20:38.350 --> 00:20:40.152
  • 'Cause if I'm stressed out overthat, then I have unbelief that
  • 00:20:40.185 --> 00:20:42.654
  • God is able to handle it, orbetter yet, that he's already
  • 00:20:42.688 --> 00:20:45.223
  • handled it.
  • 00:20:45.257 --> 00:20:47.993
  • So what do I have to do?
  • 00:20:48.026 --> 00:20:49.461
  • I have to labor to stay at restwhere provision is concerned.
  • 00:20:49.494 --> 00:20:54.466
  • And what does that look like?
  • 00:20:54.499 --> 00:20:56.001
  • Every time the thought comes up,I say, "God, I just thank you
  • 00:20:56.034 --> 00:20:58.403
  • that you're Jehovah provider andthat all needs are met in
  • 00:20:58.437 --> 00:21:00.972
  • this ministry.
  • 00:21:01.006 --> 00:21:02.341
  • Lord, I give you praise.
  • 00:21:02.374 --> 00:21:03.975
  • 'Cause, when you're at rest,there's really nothin' left to
  • 00:21:04.009 --> 00:21:05.344
  • do but praise and worship Godfor what he's already done, and
  • 00:21:05.377 --> 00:21:07.813
  • that's what it means tolive a worshipful life.
  • 00:21:07.846 --> 00:21:10.882
  • "Well, Pastor Dollar,that's not gon' be easy."
  • 00:21:13.185 --> 00:21:14.786
  • I didn't say itwas gon' be easy.
  • 00:21:14.820 --> 00:21:17.489
  • Sometimes we just gotta talkabout what's necessary and learn
  • 00:21:17.522 --> 00:21:20.826
  • how to get in rest.
  • 00:21:20.859 --> 00:21:22.427
  • And when that attackcomes--and it will.
  • 00:21:22.461 --> 00:21:24.896
  • It will.
  • 00:21:24.930 --> 00:21:26.431
  • Some of you probably experienceas soon as you walk out.
  • 00:21:26.465 --> 00:21:29.935
  • It will.
  • 00:21:29.968 --> 00:21:31.370
  • But that's when you gotta geta hold of your emotions and say,
  • 00:21:31.403 --> 00:21:33.004
  • "Now, hold on a minute.
  • 00:21:33.038 --> 00:21:34.373
  • Now, you don't run this show.
  • 00:21:34.406 --> 00:21:36.141
  • Now, I know this just happened,but I also know what Jesus has
  • 00:21:36.174 --> 00:21:38.844
  • done, and I'm gon' praise himfor what he has done, and I'm
  • 00:21:38.877 --> 00:21:43.014
  • gon' lift him--lift my hands."
  • 00:21:43.048 --> 00:21:44.783
  • Sometimes when you don't feellike lifting your hands up, "I'm
  • 00:21:44.816 --> 00:21:46.918
  • gon' lift my hands."
  • 00:21:46.952 --> 00:21:48.954
  • You do like David did.
  • 00:21:48.987 --> 00:21:50.322
  • "Praise the Lord, O my soul.
  • 00:21:50.355 --> 00:21:51.757
  • Praise the Lord, O my soul."
  • 00:21:51.790 --> 00:21:53.358
  • Get your hands up thereand praise the Lord.
  • 00:21:53.392 --> 00:21:56.595
  • I'm gon' stay at rest.
  • 00:21:56.628 --> 00:21:58.296
  • I'm not gonna allow thisthing to rob my peace.
  • 00:21:58.330 --> 00:22:00.866
  • I'm not gonna allow thisthing to stress me out.
  • 00:22:00.899 --> 00:22:03.402
  • The enemy is behind this.
  • 00:22:03.435 --> 00:22:05.804
  • "It ain't the enemyit's just how life is."
  • 00:22:05.837 --> 00:22:07.873
  • No, life doesn't happen to me.
  • 00:22:07.906 --> 00:22:10.475
  • I happen to life.
  • 00:22:10.509 --> 00:22:13.478
  • I'm not gon' letlife happen to me.
  • 00:22:13.512 --> 00:22:15.781
