  • (Music) Coming up onChrist for All Nations...
  • 00:00:09.558 --> 00:00:12.928
  • DANIEL KOLENDA- (Music) Yousee, what happened with the
  • 00:00:14.029 --> 00:00:15.264
  • cross was that God fooled eventhe devil. The wisdom of the
  • 00:00:15.397 --> 00:00:18.300
  • cross was so far above the wayman thinks and so far above
  • 00:00:18.434 --> 00:00:22.171
  • the way the devil thinksthat the enemy was actually
  • 00:00:22.304 --> 00:00:25.507
  • pounding that nail into his owncoffin and didn't know it.(Audience applause)
  • 00:00:25.641 --> 00:00:29.178
  • That's how great and how farabove the wisdom of the rulersof the age of the cross was.
  • 00:00:29.311 --> 00:00:34.083
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:34.216 --> 00:00:44.259
  • REINHARD BONNKE- He hascome to break every chain
  • 00:00:44.393 --> 00:00:46.595
  • and to unlock every prison door.
  • 00:00:46.728 --> 00:00:50.632
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:50.766 --> 00:00:52.401
  • DANIEL- He turnsdarkness into light.
  • 00:00:52.534 --> 00:00:56.105
  • He turns sin into salvation.
  • 00:00:56.238 --> 00:00:58.707
  • He turns bondage into freedom.
  • 00:00:58.841 --> 00:01:01.844
  • And He changes usfrom the inside out.
  • 00:01:01.977 --> 00:01:04.213
  • (Music)
  • 00:01:04.346 --> 00:01:14.590
  • DANIEL- Hello everybody. I'myour host, Daniel Kolenda, and
  • 00:01:14.723 --> 00:01:17.659
  • it's my privilege to welcomeyou today to another broadcast
  • 00:01:17.793 --> 00:01:20.762
  • of Christ for All Nations.Today we're gonna be
  • 00:01:20.896 --> 00:01:23.465
  • discussing a topic that isespecially relevant given the
  • 00:01:23.599 --> 00:01:27.102
  • current climate in our world,and that is the subject of
  • 00:01:27.236 --> 00:01:30.038
  • spiritual warfare. Now whetheryou're concerned about the
  • 00:01:30.172 --> 00:01:32.975
  • health crisis, the economy,the world of politics, or the
  • 00:01:33.108 --> 00:01:37.279
  • many social, moral andspiritual problems that we're
  • 00:01:37.412 --> 00:01:40.149
  • facing at the moment, whatwe're talking about today is
  • 00:01:40.282 --> 00:01:43.485
  • relevant and affects all ofit. The Book of Ephesians, 6,
  • 00:01:43.619 --> 00:01:46.288
  • verse 12, tells us that wewrestle not against flesh
  • 00:01:46.421 --> 00:01:49.424
  • and blood, but againstprincipalities, against
  • 00:01:49.558 --> 00:01:51.793
  • powers, against the rulers ofthe darkness of this world,
  • 00:01:51.927 --> 00:01:54.997
  • and against spiritualwickedness in high places.
  • 00:01:55.130 --> 00:01:57.399
  • In other words, the strugglesthat we face in our lives are
  • 00:01:57.533 --> 00:02:00.836
  • not primarily natural battles,even though they often feel
  • 00:02:00.969 --> 00:02:04.606
  • that way. But actually, weare contending with invisible
  • 00:02:04.740 --> 00:02:07.776
  • spiritual forces. That's theChristian world view and
  • 00:02:07.910 --> 00:02:11.246
  • that's the view of the Bible.And so, as Christians it's
  • 00:02:11.380 --> 00:02:14.349
  • imperative that we understandthe spiritual reality and
  • 00:02:14.483 --> 00:02:17.252
  • learn how to win our battlesthere. We're gonna get into
  • 00:02:17.386 --> 00:02:20.289
  • that on the program today. Butfirst, I want to invite you to
  • 00:02:20.422 --> 00:02:23.525
  • send in your prayer requests.I know many of you have
  • 00:02:23.659 --> 00:02:25.727
  • needs in your life. And ourministry, Christ for All
  • 00:02:25.861 --> 00:02:28.096
  • Nations, is a prayingministry. We're praying for

  • 00:02:41.944 --> 00:02:44.713
  • you. And now, sit back, relax,and enjoy this teaching onSlaying Dragons.
  • 00:02:44.846 --> 00:02:50.919
  • (Music)
  • 00:02:51.053 --> 00:02:55.224
  • Today we're gonna be talkingabout spiritual warfare.
  • 00:02:55.357 --> 00:02:58.694
  • And I want to startby telling you a
  • 00:02:58.827 --> 00:03:00.229
  • story about something thathappened to me in the city of
  • 00:03:00.362 --> 00:03:02.531
  • Monrovia in the nation ofLiberia. And it's a very
  • 00:03:02.664 --> 00:03:05.367
  • interesting story, sort ofan extreme example of what
  • 00:03:05.500 --> 00:03:09.605
  • spiritual warfare is. Butbefore I tell the story, I
  • 00:03:09.738 --> 00:03:11.974
  • need to give you a coupleof premises and disclaimers
  • 00:03:12.107 --> 00:03:16.545
  • because for a lot of people,especially in the Western
  • 00:03:16.678 --> 00:03:19.014
  • world, a story like this willsound very strange. And
  • 00:03:19.147 --> 00:03:22.351
  • here's one thing you need tounderstand right off the bat;
  • 00:03:22.484 --> 00:03:25.020
  • that witchcraft, that demons,that the spirit world is very,
  • 00:03:25.153 --> 00:03:29.591
  • very real. I think in theWestern world, we often
  • 00:03:29.725 --> 00:03:31.927
  • relegate things likewitchcraft, and voodoo, and
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:35.163
  • all of these different thingsto something that comes from
  • 00:03:35.297 --> 00:03:37.733
  • Disney World, or cartoons, orsomething that's in the world
  • 00:03:37.866 --> 00:03:41.069
  • of fantasy. But the reality isthat these spiritual realities
  • 00:03:41.203 --> 00:03:44.640
  • are very, very real. Andanother thing you need to
  • 00:03:44.773 --> 00:03:47.643
  • understand is that we as anevangelistic ministry and
  • 00:03:47.776 --> 00:03:50.979
  • myself as an evangelist, weencounter these forces, we
  • 00:03:51.113 --> 00:03:55.350
  • encounter these issues all thetime in Africa. In fact, I
  • 00:03:55.484 --> 00:03:57.753
  • will ask the, the localpastors to give me a list of
  • 00:03:57.886 --> 00:04:02.324
  • the local curses and the localdeities that the people live
  • 00:04:02.457 --> 00:04:05.627
  • in fear of. How many of youknow that witchcraft
  • 00:04:05.761 --> 00:04:08.697
  • and everything demonic,actually operates on fear?(Audience responds, Yes)
  • 00:04:08.830 --> 00:04:12.768
  • In fact, in the Scriptures wesee a very clear distinction
  • 00:04:12.901 --> 00:04:15.704
  • between the way the HolySpirit operates and the way
  • 00:04:15.837 --> 00:04:18.440
  • the enemy operates. The Biblesays that God has not given
  • 00:04:18.573 --> 00:04:20.876
  • us a spirit of fear, but ofpower, and of love, and of a
  • 00:04:21.009 --> 00:04:23.879
  • sound mind. So, whenever yousee fear operating, you know
  • 00:04:24.012 --> 00:04:26.982
  • that you're in the territoryof the enemy. And, and
  • 00:04:27.115 --> 00:04:30.252
  • witchcraft, especially inthe Third World, very much
  • 00:04:30.385 --> 00:04:33.221
  • operates by fear. And so, manyof these local people will not
  • 00:04:33.355 --> 00:04:36.758
  • even pronounce out loud thenames of these local deities
  • 00:04:36.892 --> 00:04:40.662
  • or curses because they'reafraid that the curse will
  • 00:04:40.796 --> 00:04:43.265
  • come upon them. And the witchdoctors will sometime give
  • 00:04:43.398 --> 00:04:46.001
  • them charms, or amulets, orfetishes, or something to hang
  • 00:04:46.134 --> 00:04:49.304
  • around their neck or to puton their body. And the witch
  • 00:04:49.438 --> 00:04:51.873
  • doctor will tell them, If youever take this off,
  • 00:04:52.007 --> 00:04:54.543
  • you will die.(Audience member responds, Wow).
  • 00:04:54.676 --> 00:04:56.078
  • So, imagine the fear that thepeople live in. And then we
  • 00:04:56.211 --> 00:04:58.447
  • come along, and I get thislist that has all the names of
  • 00:04:58.580 --> 00:05:01.583
  • these local deities andcurses. And with the
  • 00:05:01.717 --> 00:05:04.720
  • microphone in hand over thehuge PA system, I begin to
  • 00:05:04.853 --> 00:05:07.756
  • name them one by one, and breaktheir power in the name ofJesus. (Audience response)
  • 00:05:07.889 --> 00:05:12.227
  • And then I tell the people,Bring those fetishes, those
  • 00:05:12.361 --> 00:05:14.930
  • charms, amulets, idols,they're called, collectively
  • 00:05:15.063 --> 00:05:17.699
  • called juju. We say, Bring allof that stuff; and we pile it
  • 00:05:17.833 --> 00:05:20.635
  • up, and we douse it withgasoline, and we burn it. And
  • 00:05:20.769 --> 00:05:24.606
  • when the people see what'shappening and they see that I
  • 00:05:24.740 --> 00:05:27.676
  • didn't die on the platforminstantly from some curse,
  • 00:05:27.809 --> 00:05:30.612
  • they all look at each other andthey say, Jesus is morepowerful. (Audience response)
  • 00:05:30.746 --> 00:05:34.783
  • And so, you need a little bitof that background before you
  • 00:05:34.916 --> 00:05:37.919
  • hear this story because I wasin Monrovia in Liberia, and
  • 00:05:38.053 --> 00:05:42.290
  • there was a lady that came tothe crusade one night, and shewas a witch doctor. And she
  • 00:05:42.424 --> 00:05:46.728
  • actually came to the crusadethat night to put a curse on
  • 00:05:46.862 --> 00:05:49.064
  • me and kill me right there onthe platform. And so, she was
  • 00:05:49.197 --> 00:05:52.868
  • standing over to my right-handside in the audience. I didn't
  • 00:05:53.001 --> 00:05:56.204
  • know she was there at thistime. I didn't know anything
  • 00:05:56.338 --> 00:05:58.407
  • about this story. I was justpreaching. And if memory
  • 00:05:58.540 --> 00:06:01.243
  • serves me right, I waspreaching on the blood of
  • 00:06:01.376 --> 00:06:03.345
  • Jesus, which had to have beena divine set up. Because how
  • 00:06:03.478 --> 00:06:07.616
  • many of you know there's powerin the blood of Jesus? (Audienceapplause)
  • 00:06:07.749 --> 00:06:10.352
  • We believe that. We teachthat, and we see that
  • 00:06:10.485 --> 00:06:12.687
  • demonstrated all the time. Andso, as I'm preaching about the
  • 00:06:12.821 --> 00:06:16.224
  • blood of Jesus, this woman isover there with her fetishes,
  • 00:06:16.358 --> 00:06:18.927
  • whatever it is, her charms andshe's getting ready to hurl
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:21.963
  • this curse at me while I'mpreaching. And suddenly, and
  • 00:06:22.097 --> 00:06:25.967
  • this is when I become awareof her presence, I hear this
  • 00:06:26.101 --> 00:06:29.037
  • blood-curdling scream. And Ilook over to my right-hand
  • 00:06:29.171 --> 00:06:32.174
  • side and there is this womanon the ground, writhing like
  • 00:06:32.307 --> 00:06:35.277
  • a snake, foaming at themouth. (Audience response)
  • 00:06:35.410 --> 00:06:38.346
  • Literally the Holy Spirit hadjust hit her. I didn't know. I
  • 00:06:38.480 --> 00:06:41.683
  • didn't lay hands on her. Ididn't rebuke anything. It was
  • 00:06:41.817 --> 00:06:44.085
  • just sovereign. The Lord hither. She fell to the ground,began to manifest
  • 00:06:44.219 --> 00:06:48.557
  • So, I kept preaching.just ignored her. But
  • 00:06:48.690 --> 00:06:50.926
  • thankfully we had the, thelocal pastors trained very
  • 00:06:51.059 --> 00:06:53.895
  • well. They took that womanout. They took her to a tent
  • 00:06:54.029 --> 00:06:56.565
  • that we have behind theplatform for deliverance. And
  • 00:06:56.698 --> 00:06:59.167
  • we call it the snake pit.And back there they cast the
  • 00:06:59.301 --> 00:07:02.871
  • demons out of her; she came toher right mind. They led her
  • 00:07:03.004 --> 00:07:05.640
  • to Jesus. She became aChristian. (Audience response)
  • 00:07:05.774 --> 00:07:07.742
  • And then they brought her tome on the platform. And she
  • 00:07:07.876 --> 00:07:10.345
  • introduced herself to me likethis; she said, I came here
  • 00:07:10.479 --> 00:07:13.048
  • tonight to kill you. Nowcan you imagine someone
  • 00:07:13.181 --> 00:07:16.084
  • introducing themselves thatway. I said, Well,
  • 00:07:16.218 --> 00:07:18.320
  • it's nice to meet you, too.(Audience laughter)
  • 00:07:18.453 --> 00:07:20.288
  • She said, I came here tonightto kill you. But instead, I've
  • 00:07:20.422 --> 00:07:22.924
  • become a Christian becausetonight I've seen that your
  • 00:07:23.058 --> 00:07:26.094
  • Jesus is more powerful than mywitchcraft. (Audience applause)
  • 00:07:26.228 --> 00:07:30.165
  • Halleluiah. That's a truestory. And now, we're gonna be
  • 00:07:30.298 --> 00:07:34.836
  • talking about spiritualwarfare over the next few
  • 00:07:34.970 --> 00:07:38.373
  • minutes. But what I want youto understand, even though
  • 00:07:38.507 --> 00:07:41.009
  • that is a very extreme versionof spiritual warfare and one
  • 00:07:41.142 --> 00:07:44.946
  • that most of us and most ofyou don't encounter on a daily
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:48.583
  • basis. However, you have tounderstand that all of these
  • 00:07:48.717 --> 00:07:52.187
  • things, whether it's thelittle struggles and battles
  • 00:07:52.320 --> 00:07:55.790
  • that you face in your life, orwhether it's something dealing
  • 00:07:55.924 --> 00:07:58.760
  • with a severely demonizedperson, they all exist in the
  • 00:07:58.894 --> 00:08:00.996
  • same realm. And the same toolsand the same principles will
  • 00:08:01.129 --> 00:08:04.499
  • give you victory, whether itis in your own personal life
  • 00:08:04.633 --> 00:08:07.602
  • or on a crusade platform inthe Third World. The same
  • 00:08:07.736 --> 00:08:10.772
  • principles apply. And thereality is that most of the
  • 00:08:10.906 --> 00:08:15.010
  • spiritual battles we face arefought between the ears, right
  • 00:08:15.143 --> 00:08:19.915
  • here in this gray matter. Andthe reality is that if you can
  • 00:08:20.048 --> 00:08:23.151
  • learn to get the victory inhere, you will find tremendous
  • 00:08:23.285 --> 00:08:27.322
  • authority out there in theworld. However, if you can't
  • 00:08:27.455 --> 00:08:30.559
  • get the victory in here, youare going to have a very
  • 00:08:30.692 --> 00:08:33.495
  • difficult time having victoryover anything else in your
  • 00:08:33.628 --> 00:08:36.131
  • life. And so, I want to just,I want to just give you a new
  • 00:08:36.264 --> 00:08:40.669
  • perspective today if I can.You know, there's, the power
  • 00:08:40.802 --> 00:08:44.539
  • of perspective is somethingmost people don't understand.
  • 00:08:44.673 --> 00:08:47.842
  • Maybe you've heard of the termof a paradigm. How many of you
  • 00:08:47.976 --> 00:08:51.012
  • have heard of a paradigm? Aparadigm is the lens through
  • 00:08:51.146 --> 00:08:53.615
  • which that you see something.Very often, if you can change
  • 00:08:53.748 --> 00:08:56.718
  • your lens or you can changethe way that you're looking at
  • 00:08:56.851 --> 00:08:58.887
  • something, you will havea completely different
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:01.690
  • experience with it. And Ithink that spiritual warfare
  • 00:09:01.823 --> 00:09:04.859
  • is one of those. So, I'm gonnastart today by reading from
  • 00:09:04.993 --> 00:09:07.929
  • the Book of Genesis, chapter3. And I'm gonna read a little
  • 00:09:08.063 --> 00:09:11.032
  • passage of Scripture withyou. I want to go ahead and
  • 00:09:11.166 --> 00:09:13.268
  • apologize in advance for usingso much Scripture. I have
  • 00:09:13.401 --> 00:09:16.571
  • nothing else to say outside ofthis book. This is my source
  • 00:09:16.705 --> 00:09:20.008
  • of authority and revelation.And, and I believe that
  • 00:09:20.141 --> 00:09:23.311
  • everything, especially whenyou get into the realm of the
  • 00:09:23.445 --> 00:09:26.381
  • unseen and the supernatural,you better be basing what you
  • 00:09:26.514 --> 00:09:29.618
  • believe on this book or youare quickly going to find
  • 00:09:29.751 --> 00:09:32.787
  • yourself lost, out of yourdepth. Because remember, the
  • 00:09:32.921 --> 00:09:35.624
  • spiritual world is one thatyou can't see with your eyes.
  • 00:09:35.757 --> 00:09:37.559
  • So, you have no visible, noaudible, no sensory ability to
  • 00:09:37.692 --> 00:09:42.397
  • perceive it. That's why theScriptures serve as a guide
  • 00:09:42.530 --> 00:09:45.100
  • for us in this invisibleworld. So, let's begin,
  • 00:09:45.233 --> 00:09:47.435
  • Genesis, chapter 3, and I'mgonna read the first seven
  • 00:09:47.569 --> 00:09:51.506
  • verses. Now it says: Theserpent was more subtle than
  • 00:09:51.640 --> 00:09:54.142
  • any beast of the field whichthe Lord God had made. And he
  • 00:09:54.275 --> 00:09:56.978
  • said unto the woman, Yeah,hath God said that you shall
  • 00:09:57.112 --> 00:09:59.914
  • not eat of every tree of thegarden. And the woman said to
  • 00:10:00.048 --> 00:10:02.550
  • the serpent, we may eat ofthe fruit of the trees in the
  • 00:10:02.684 --> 00:10:04.886
  • garden. But the fruit of thetree which is in the midst of
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:07.389
  • the garden, God hath said, Youshall not eat of it, neither
  • 00:10:07.522 --> 00:10:10.558
  • shall you touch it, lest youdie. And the serpent said to
  • 00:10:10.692 --> 00:10:13.895
  • the woman, You shall notsurely die. For God knows that
  • 00:10:14.029 --> 00:10:17.699
  • in the day you eat thereof,then your eyes will be opened,
  • 00:10:17.832 --> 00:10:20.535
  • and you will be as gods,knowing good and evil. And
  • 00:10:20.669 --> 00:10:24.139
  • when the woman saw that thetree was good for food, and
  • 00:10:24.272 --> 00:10:26.174
  • that it was pleasant to theeyes, and a tree to be desired
  • 00:10:26.307 --> 00:10:29.377
  • to make one wise, she took thefruit thereof and did eat, and
  • 00:10:29.511 --> 00:10:32.047
  • gave also to her husband withher, and he did eat. And the
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:35.550
  • eyes of both of them wereopened, and they knew that
  • 00:10:35.684 --> 00:10:39.054
  • they were naked; and theysewed fig leaves together, and
  • 00:10:39.187 --> 00:10:41.623
  • made themselves aprons. Now ofcourse, this is a very famous
  • 00:10:41.756 --> 00:10:45.760
  • story. Any of you that arepart of the church, you have
  • 00:10:45.894 --> 00:10:49.030
  • heard this before. And evenpeople that don't go to
  • 00:10:49.164 --> 00:10:52.200
  • church, they know that, thatAdam and Eve ate from an apple
  • 00:10:52.333 --> 00:10:55.937
  • in the garden. Right? Nowactually the Bible doesn't say
  • 00:10:56.071 --> 00:10:59.140
  • it was an apple. And there'sno good reason to think it was
  • 00:10:59.274 --> 00:11:01.342
  • an apple. I think it was afig. And I could prove that to
  • 00:11:01.476 --> 00:11:04.412
  • you. But that's kind of besidethe point. What I really want
  • 00:11:04.546 --> 00:11:07.449
  • you to see is that it wasn'tabout an apple or a fig; that
  • 00:11:07.582 --> 00:11:11.286
  • the temptation and themoment of the fall was about
  • 00:11:11.419 --> 00:11:14.022
  • something far more insidious,something far more important.
  • 00:11:14.155 --> 00:11:18.593
  • Of course, that forbiddenfruit was the tangible, the
  • 00:11:18.727 --> 00:11:22.530
  • visible exchange that tookplace. And even today, that
  • 00:11:22.664 --> 00:11:26.367
  • forbidden fruit serves as avery powerful metaphor for us.
  • 00:11:26.501 --> 00:11:29.804
  • But I want you to see whatwas actually happening in the
  • 00:11:29.938 --> 00:11:33.074
  • fall. Satan, when he comes toEve in the Garden of Eden, he
  • 00:11:33.208 --> 00:11:38.346
  • comes to her with a verysubtle and very specific
  • 00:11:38.480 --> 00:11:41.950
  • strategy. It comes in threeparts. And if you read the
  • 00:11:42.083 --> 00:11:45.553
  • text carefully, you'll seethese three parts. First of
  • 00:11:45.687 --> 00:11:48.089
  • all, the very first thing thatSatan says to the woman is
  • 00:11:48.223 --> 00:11:51.793
  • this, Hath God said... So yousee, right out of the gate,
  • 00:11:51.926 --> 00:11:56.564
  • Satan is questioning God'sword. He's questioning what
  • 00:11:56.698 --> 00:11:59.901
  • God has said. That's strategyNumber 1. Number 2, Satan says
  • 00:12:00.034 --> 00:12:05.406
  • to the woman, You will notsurely die. Remember, God has
  • 00:12:05.540 --> 00:12:08.943
  • told her, In the day that youeat thereof you shall surely
  • 00:12:09.077 --> 00:12:11.212
  • die. And Satan says, You won'tsurely die. So now,
  • 00:12:11.346 --> 00:12:13.648
  • he's questioning God'struthfulness. Number 1, he
  • 00:12:13.782 --> 00:12:17.452
  • questions God's word. Number2, he questions God's
  • 00:12:17.585 --> 00:12:20.121
  • truthfulness. And Number 3, hequestions God's motives. And
  • 00:12:20.255 --> 00:12:25.326
  • how does he do that? He saysto Eve, Listen Even, the
  • 00:12:25.460 --> 00:12:27.128
  • reason God doesn't want you totaste this fruit is because
  • 00:12:27.262 --> 00:12:31.166
  • when you eat it, your eyeswill open and you will be like
  • 00:12:31.299 --> 00:12:33.334
  • a god, knowing good and evil.In other words, what the devil
  • 00:12:33.468 --> 00:12:36.237
  • is saying, God just wantsto hold you back. He feels
  • 00:12:36.371 --> 00:12:40.708
  • threatened by your potential.It's not that, it's not that
  • 00:12:40.842 --> 00:12:44.112
  • anything bad's gonna happen toyou. It's just that God wants
  • 00:12:44.245 --> 00:12:47.215
  • to hold you down. So, you seeSatan questioning the motives
  • 00:12:47.348 --> 00:12:50.852
  • behind the instructions that,that God has given to Adam
  • 00:12:50.985 --> 00:12:54.422
  • and Eve. So, Number 1, hequestions God's word. He
  • 00:12:54.556 --> 00:12:56.791
  • questions God's truthfulness,Number 2. And he questions
  • 00:12:56.925 --> 00:12:59.060
  • God's motives, Number 3. Andthen he closes in for the kill
  • 00:12:59.194 --> 00:13:04.098
  • with this final offer. He saysto Eve, You can be like a god.
  • 00:13:04.232 --> 00:13:10.171
  • And with this finaltemptation, the devil
  • 00:13:10.305 --> 00:13:13.374
  • overplayed his hand and showedEve, and showed us what's
  • 00:13:13.508 --> 00:13:16.644
  • really happening; because,if you know the Bible, that
  • 00:13:16.778 --> 00:13:22.016
  • offer should sound strangelyfamiliar to you because
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:25.787
  • actually it was the devilhimself who wanted to be as
  • 00:13:25.920 --> 00:13:29.190
  • God. We read about it in theBook of Isaiah, chapter 14, in
  • 00:13:29.324 --> 00:13:34.095
  • verses 13-14. Satan himselfsays, I will ascend to the
  • 00:13:34.229 --> 00:13:37.699
  • heavens. I will raise mythrone above the stars of God.
  • 00:13:37.832 --> 00:13:41.102
  • I will sit enthroned on themount of the assembly, on the
  • 00:13:41.236 --> 00:13:43.371
  • utmost height, on the utmostheights of Mount Zaphon. I
  • 00:13:43.504 --> 00:13:46.708
  • will ascend above the tops ofthe clouds. I will make myself
  • 00:13:46.841 --> 00:13:50.111
  • like the Most High. In otherwords, I want to be like God.
  • 00:13:50.245 --> 00:13:54.415
  • And here you see that thistemptation in the Garden of
  • 00:13:54.549 --> 00:13:57.785
  • Eden was not just aboutconvincing Adam and Eve to eat
  • 00:13:57.919 --> 00:14:01.055
  • a piece of fruit. That wouldhave been silly. It wasn't
  • 00:14:01.189 --> 00:14:04.092
  • even just about convincingAdam and Eve to disobey, even
  • 00:14:04.225 --> 00:14:07.795
  • though that was bad enough.But what was happening in this
  • 00:14:07.929 --> 00:14:10.265
  • exchange, if you, if you watchand you read carefully, is
  • 00:14:10.398 --> 00:14:14.035
  • that Satan, through thisexchange was passing on to
  • 00:14:14.168 --> 00:14:17.605
  • Adam and Eve his way ofthinking, (Audience response)
  • 00:14:17.739 --> 00:14:20.441
  • his mind, his imagination.Adam and Eve partook of that
  • 00:14:20.575 --> 00:14:25.980
  • forbidden fruit. But what theyreally did was they imbibed
  • 00:14:26.114 --> 00:14:28.549
  • the satanic way of thinkingthat has persisted among the
  • 00:14:28.683 --> 00:14:32.854
  • human race today. And if youread the Scriptures, now with
  • 00:14:32.987 --> 00:14:35.857
  • this new paradigm what you'regonna see is that this
  • 00:14:35.990 --> 00:14:39.360
  • condition is endemic in thehuman race. In fact, every
  • 00:14:39.494 --> 00:14:43.765
  • human being comes into theworld, the Bible talks how
  • 00:14:43.898 --> 00:14:46.534
  • we're born in sin. It's the,it's the doctrine of original
  • 00:14:46.668 --> 00:14:49.003
  • sin. The reality is theproblem is that as natural
  • 00:14:49.137 --> 00:14:53.408
  • human beings, we think in away that is demonic. I'll
  • 00:14:53.541 --> 00:14:56.044
  • prove this to you. I'm gonnaput some Scriptures up here on
  • 00:14:56.177 --> 00:14:58.613
  • the screen. I'm gonna askeverybody in the studio
  • 00:14:58.746 --> 00:15:00.348
  • audience to read these withme. And I want to also invite
  • 00:15:00.481 --> 00:15:02.684
  • those of you watching to readthese with me as well because
  • 00:15:02.817 --> 00:15:05.353
  • I want this to sink into yourheart. I want you to have the
  • 00:15:05.486 --> 00:15:08.523
  • revelation of this. So, we'regonna start with 1 John,
  • 00:15:08.656 --> 00:15:10.992
  • chapter 2, reading verses15-16. Let's read it together:
  • 00:15:11.125 --> 00:15:14.829
  • (Audience reading aloud) Donot love the world or the
  • 00:15:14.963 --> 00:15:17.665
  • things in the world. If anyoneloves the world, the love of
  • 00:15:17.799 --> 00:15:22.337
  • the Father is not in him. Forall that is in the world, the
  • 00:15:22.470 --> 00:15:26.641
  • lust of the flesh, and thelust of the eyes, and the
  • 00:15:26.774 --> 00:15:30.211
  • pride of life, is not of theFather, but is of the world.
  • 00:15:30.345 --> 00:15:35.783
  • Now we just read that passagefrom the Book of Genesis where
  • 00:15:35.917 --> 00:15:38.553
  • you saw the temptation of Adamand Eve. Now I want to show
  • 00:15:38.686 --> 00:15:42.256
  • you something that this, what,what John told us lines up
  • 00:15:42.390 --> 00:15:45.526
  • directly, almost point forpoint with that story.
  • 00:15:45.660 --> 00:15:49.297
  • Remember it says in Genesis,3:6, that Eve saw the fruit of
  • 00:15:49.430 --> 00:15:54.535
  • the trees, that it was goodfor food. That's the lust of
  • 00:15:54.669 --> 00:15:57.271
  • the flesh. And it was pleasingto the eyes. That's the,
  • 00:15:57.405 --> 00:16:01.943
  • that's the lust of the eyes.And it was, it was desirable
  • 00:16:02.076 --> 00:16:06.914
  • for gaining wisdom. That's thepride of life. You see this?(Audience responds, Yes)
  • 00:16:07.048 --> 00:16:12.353
  • So, John says that iseverything that's in the
  • 00:16:12.487 --> 00:16:14.689
  • world; the way the worldthinks, the way the world
  • 00:16:14.822 --> 00:16:17.458
  • acts, the world's motives. Allthat there is in the world
  • 00:16:17.592 --> 00:16:21.796
  • falls into one of these threecategories; the lust of the
  • 00:16:21.929 --> 00:16:23.831
  • flesh, the lust of the eyes,and the pride of life. And you
  • 00:16:23.965 --> 00:16:26.000
  • see it right there in thatexchange in the Book of
  • 00:16:26.134 --> 00:16:28.169
  • Genesis when, when Satanoffers Eve that food. Okay,
  • 00:16:28.302 --> 00:16:31.973
  • let's, let's read anotherpassage together. This is
  • 00:16:32.106 --> 00:16:34.342
  • Romans, chapter 8, verse7. Let's read together:
  • 00:16:34.475 --> 00:16:37.912
  • (Audience reading aloud) Thecarnal mind is enmity against
  • 00:16:38.046 --> 00:16:41.149
  • God; for it is not subject tothe law of God, nor indeed can
  • 00:16:41.282 --> 00:16:47.588
  • be. So, the word, carnal,means natural. It means
  • 00:16:47.722 --> 00:16:51.125
  • worldly. It means the waythat, basically all human
  • 00:16:51.259 --> 00:16:56.464
  • beings think in their natural,fallen condition. And notice
  • 00:16:56.597 --> 00:17:00.201
  • what it says, that the way theworld thinks is not only not
  • 00:17:00.334 --> 00:17:02.103
  • godly; in other words, it'snot just not good. It is
  • 00:17:02.236 --> 00:17:06.707
  • actually ungodly. You see.It's not somewhere in the
  • 00:17:06.841 --> 00:17:11.212
  • middle. It's not like you havegodly over, ungodly over here,
  • 00:17:11.345 --> 00:17:14.048
  • and then there's this neutralground that most people fall
  • 00:17:14.182 --> 00:17:16.617
  • into. That's the way we normallythink, isn't it? (Audienceresponds, Yes)
  • 00:17:16.751 --> 00:17:18.686
  • That you have good people,you have bad people, and then
  • 00:17:18.820 --> 00:17:20.755
  • there's just everybody elsein between. That's not the
  • 00:17:20.888 --> 00:17:22.924
  • biblical world view. There isthe godly way of thinking, and
  • 00:17:23.057 --> 00:17:26.427
  • everything else falls intothis other category. And it
  • 00:17:26.561 --> 00:17:29.397
  • says that no only is thisnatural mind not subject to
  • 00:17:29.530 --> 00:17:32.500
  • the law of God, but it cannotbe. See, this is what you face
  • 00:17:32.633 --> 00:17:37.472
  • when you go out into the worldaround you. Don't get angry
  • 00:17:37.605 --> 00:17:39.807
  • with sinners for beingsinners. They cannot help it.
  • 00:17:39.941 --> 00:17:44.278
  • They have no other way ofthinking. They cannot, in
  • 00:17:44.412 --> 00:17:46.948
  • their own selves, change theway that they think to a godly
  • 00:17:47.081 --> 00:17:49.784
  • way. It's impossible for thenatural mind to think that
  • 00:17:49.917 --> 00:17:53.154
  • way. Let's read, Ephesians,chapter 2, verses 1 and 3:
  • 00:17:53.287 --> 00:17:57.658
  • (Audience reading aloud) Asfor you, you were dead in your
  • 00:17:57.792 --> 00:18:00.828
  • transgressions and sins inwhich you used to live when
  • 00:18:00.962 --> 00:18:05.766
  • you followed the ways of thisworld and of the ruler of the
  • 00:18:05.900 --> 00:18:10.104
  • kingdom of the air, the spiritwho is not at work in those
  • 00:18:10.238 --> 00:18:14.842
  • who are disobedient. This ispowerful. See, look at the
  • 00:18:14.976 --> 00:18:19.213
  • way that the Apostle Pauldescribes people who are not
  • 00:18:19.347 --> 00:18:23.017
  • born again. It's, he describesthem as dead. Now let me ask
  • 00:18:23.151 --> 00:18:26.988
  • you a question, What can a deadman do for himself? (Audienceresponds, Nothing)
  • 00:18:27.121 --> 00:18:30.625
  • Nothing. They are, they arehopeless. They are helpless.
  • 00:18:30.758 --> 00:18:34.762
  • They have no way of affectingtheir condition because
  • 00:18:34.896 --> 00:18:37.632
  • they're dead in theirtrespasses and sins. And not
  • 00:18:37.765 --> 00:18:40.268
  • only that, they're followingthe ruler of the air, which is
  • 00:18:40.401 --> 00:18:43.304
  • another word for the devilhimself, for Satan. They're
  • 00:18:43.437 --> 00:18:46.507
  • gratifying the cravings of theflesh. In other words, they're
  • 00:18:46.641 --> 00:18:49.677
  • a slave to their desires,their impulses, their
  • 00:18:49.810 --> 00:18:52.580
  • addictions, and theircompulsions. How many have
  • 00:18:52.713 --> 00:18:54.582
  • remembered before you knewJesus? Remember how you just
  • 00:18:54.715 --> 00:18:57.385
  • followed those cravings of theflesh, those impulses, going
  • 00:18:57.518 --> 00:19:00.888
  • from impulse to impulse,pleasure to pleasure. So
  • 00:19:01.022 --> 00:19:04.225
  • much so that you were stillmiserable in the midst of it
  • 00:19:04.358 --> 00:19:06.494
  • and trying frantically to dosomething that would make you
  • 00:19:06.627 --> 00:19:10.298
  • happy. This is the way thatthe world is. And it says
  • 00:19:10.431 --> 00:19:14.302
  • something very important here,which especially this is a
  • 00:19:14.435 --> 00:19:17.338
  • room full of evangelists, weneed to remember that they are
  • 00:19:17.471 --> 00:19:20.007
  • deserving of God's anger,deserving of God's wrath. You
  • 00:19:20.141 --> 00:19:24.845
  • know, there are, there aresome people that preach the
  • 00:19:24.979 --> 00:19:27.448
  • Gospel, they think, wellpeople deserve salvation. No.
  • 00:19:27.582 --> 00:19:29.984
  • We, we don't deservesalvation. You didn't deserve
  • 00:19:30.117 --> 00:19:33.087
  • salvation. The world doesn'tdeserve anything but wrath.
  • 00:19:33.221 --> 00:19:36.891
  • And that's why the cross ismercy. It's not God giving
  • 00:19:37.024 --> 00:19:40.528
  • people what they deserve. It'sactually the mercy of God.
  • 00:19:40.661 --> 00:19:43.764
  • Let's read together first,sorry, Colossians, chapter 1,verse 21. It says:
  • 00:19:43.898 --> 00:19:49.570
  • (Audience reading aloud) Onceyou were alienated from God
  • 00:19:49.704 --> 00:19:52.707
  • and were enemies in your mindsbecause of your evil behavior.
  • 00:19:52.840 --> 00:19:57.478
  • Look at this passage goes evenfurther than the one before
  • 00:19:57.612 --> 00:20:00.014
  • it. It says that you were,that we were before Christ
  • 00:20:00.147 --> 00:20:03.017
  • alienated or separated fromGod, and we were enemies of
  • 00:20:03.150 --> 00:20:07.521
  • God. Where were we enemies? Inour minds. Are you starting
  • 00:20:07.655 --> 00:20:11.792
  • to see this? (Audienceresponds, Yeah)
  • 00:20:11.926 --> 00:20:13.127
  • You see, Satan passed his wayof thinking on, and human
  • 00:20:13.261 --> 00:20:16.197
  • beings to this day are bornwith that satanic thought
  • 00:20:16.330 --> 00:20:19.600
  • pattern that has made them,literally made them enemies of
  • 00:20:19.734 --> 00:20:22.503
  • God in their minds. FirstCorinthians, chapter 2,verses 14-16:
  • 00:20:22.637 --> 00:20:27.808
  • (Audience reading aloud) Butthe natural man receiveth not
  • 00:20:27.942 --> 00:20:30.845
  • the things of the Spirit ofGod: of they are foolishness
  • 00:20:30.978 --> 00:20:34.782
  • unto him; neither can heknow them, because they are
  • 00:20:34.915 --> 00:20:39.620
  • spiritually discerned. Againwe see it. The natural mind is
  • 00:20:39.754 --> 00:20:43.291
  • incapable of understanding thethings of God. The natural
  • 00:20:43.424 --> 00:20:47.695
  • mind simply has no access tothe things of the Spirit. It's
  • 00:20:47.828 --> 00:20:51.465
  • almost like when human beingscome into this world, we are
  • 00:20:51.599 --> 00:20:54.568
  • programmed to one frequency.And God is in a totally
  • 00:20:54.702 --> 00:20:58.639
  • different frequency. Ormaybe that's even not even a
  • 00:20:58.773 --> 00:21:01.542
  • sufficient analogy. It's likewe're on one, we're on a radio
  • 00:21:01.676 --> 00:21:04.545
  • frequency and God is on atotally different system.
  • 00:21:04.679 --> 00:21:07.648
  • He's digital. He's somethingelse. (Audience laughter)
  • 00:21:07.782 --> 00:21:09.650
  • He's not even in the sameuniverse as ours. And the
  • 00:21:09.784 --> 00:21:11.919
  • natural man has no access tothe things of the Spirit.
  • 00:21:12.053 --> 00:21:17.391
  • Okay so, now let's see throughanother Scripture, let's see
  • 00:21:17.525 --> 00:21:19.727
  • this principle in action. I'mnot gonna ask you to read this
  • 00:21:19.860 --> 00:21:22.430
  • with me, but I want to readthis to you in Matthew,
  • 00:21:22.563 --> 00:21:25.032
  • chapter 16, verses 22-23. Wesee this very interesting
  • 00:21:25.166 --> 00:21:29.337
  • exchange between Jesus andPeter. Now before, before I
  • 00:21:29.470 --> 00:21:32.573
  • read this, I want to remindyou what's just happened.
  • 00:21:32.707 --> 00:21:34.842
  • Jesus, and Peter, and thedisciples, they went to
  • 00:21:34.975 --> 00:21:37.211
  • Caesarea Philippi. This is theplace where Jesus said to the
  • 00:21:37.345 --> 00:21:39.880
  • disciples. He said, Who do mensay that I am. Remember this.
  • 00:21:40.014 --> 00:21:42.483
  • And some say You're Moses.Some say Elijah, one of the
  • 00:21:42.616 --> 00:21:45.052
  • other prophets. Who do you saythat I am? And Peter says, You
  • 00:21:45.186 --> 00:21:47.755
  • are the Christ, the Son ofthe Living God. And what does
  • 00:21:47.888 --> 00:21:49.623
  • Jesus say to Peter, Blessedare you for flesh and blood
  • 00:21:49.757 --> 00:21:53.194
  • did not reveal this to you,but My Father I heaven. In
  • 00:21:53.327 --> 00:21:55.629
  • other words, what Jesus saysto Peter here is, Peter, you
  • 00:21:55.763 --> 00:21:57.965
  • just had a supernatural,God-given revelation of Who I
  • 00:21:58.099 --> 00:22:02.937
  • am. Good job, Peter. Andeverybody claps. And I think
  • 00:22:03.070 --> 00:22:05.573
  • Peter thought really, hethought, Yeah, I'm good, man.
  • 00:22:05.706 --> 00:22:07.641
  • I'm getting this thing down.And he got a little too full
  • 00:22:07.775 --> 00:22:10.544
  • of himself. Because then thevery next thing Jesus does is
  • 00:22:10.678 --> 00:22:13.981
  • He starts to talk to themabout how He is going to go
  • 00:22:14.115 --> 00:22:16.917
  • to the cross. He starts todescribe how He's going to
  • 00:22:17.051 --> 00:22:19.720
  • suffer and He's going to diefor their sins. Now death on a
  • 00:22:19.854 --> 00:22:23.457
  • cross doesn't seem to Peterlike a very good idea.
  • 00:22:23.591 --> 00:22:28.295
  • Probably to no one, death on across seems like a very good
  • 00:22:28.429 --> 00:22:32.666
  • idea. And remember, Peter nowhas these great revelations.
  • 00:22:32.800 --> 00:22:37.138
  • And I think Peter thought tohimself, I need to, I need to
  • 00:22:37.271 --> 00:22:38.839
  • set Jesus straight here. I'mthe one that gets all these
  • 00:22:38.973 --> 00:22:41.375
  • great revelations. So, it saysin verse 22: Peter took him
  • 00:22:41.509 --> 00:22:44.412
  • aside and began to rebuke him,saying and said, Never, Lord!
  • 00:22:44.545 --> 00:22:47.948
  • This shall never happen toyou. Now Peter thought he was
  • 00:22:48.082 --> 00:22:51.018
  • being a good guy. He thoughthe was helping Jesus. He was
  • 00:22:51.152 --> 00:22:53.954
  • encouraging Jesus that such aterrible fate would never come
  • 00:22:54.088 --> 00:22:57.591
  • to Him. But Jesus said to him,Get behind me, Satan! Listen
  • 00:22:57.725 --> 00:23:03.597
  • to this next phrase: You are astumbling block to me... Why?
  • 00:23:03.731 --> 00:23:06.634
  • ...you do not have in mind theconcerns of God, but merely
  • 00:23:06.767 --> 00:23:12.473
  • human concerns. Another way oftranslating that is, You are
  • 00:23:12.606 --> 00:23:15.843
  • not thinking as God thinks.You are thinking as man
  • 00:23:15.976 --> 00:23:21.482
  • thinks. That's literally whatJesus said to Peter. But I
  • 00:23:21.615 --> 00:23:26.153
  • want you to notice some veryclear deductions that you can
  • 00:23:26.287 --> 00:23:28.923
  • make from this passage. Number1, the way that Peter was
  • 00:23:29.056 --> 00:23:31.692
  • thinking when he rebuked Jesusfor wanting to go to the
  • 00:23:31.826 --> 00:23:33.761
  • cross; it was a natural,human, carnal way of thinking.
  • 00:23:33.894 --> 00:23:38.365
  • Not only that, it's clear thatthat carnal, natural way of
  • 00:23:38.499 --> 00:23:42.937
  • thinking is not the way thatGod thinks. But beyond that,
  • 00:23:43.070 --> 00:23:47.675
  • Jesus calls Peter, Satan,which tells you that the way
  • 00:23:47.808 --> 00:23:50.478
  • that man thinks is demonic innature. You see this? (Audienceresponse)
  • 00:23:50.611 --> 00:23:56.750
  • Now I want you to notice thereason that Peter rebuked
  • 00:23:56.884 --> 00:23:58.686
  • Jesus because He was talkingabout going to the cross.
  • 00:23:58.819 --> 00:24:02.289
  • This is very, very important,because you see, the cross,
  • 00:24:02.423 --> 00:24:04.558
  • we understand, is utterfoolishness to the carnal
  • 00:24:04.692 --> 00:24:07.828
  • mind. This is one of the, thisis one of the fundamental
  • 00:24:07.962 --> 00:24:10.531
  • tenets of the Gospel. Paulsays, It's foolishness to the
  • 00:24:10.664 --> 00:24:13.734
  • Greek. It's a stumbling blockto the Jew. But it's the power
  • 00:24:13.868 --> 00:24:16.170
  • of God and it's the wisdomof God. Peter could not
  • 00:24:16.303 --> 00:24:19.940
  • understand how going to across would accomplish the
  • 00:24:20.074 --> 00:24:24.645
  • purposes of God. The worlddidn't understand it. You know
  • 00:24:24.778 --> 00:24:28.015
  • who else didn't understand it?The devil didn't understand
  • 00:24:28.148 --> 00:24:30.050
  • it. In fact, we read in, inthe Scriptures, it says that
  • 00:24:30.184 --> 00:24:32.853
  • if the rulers of this age hadunderstood what they were
  • 00:24:32.987 --> 00:24:35.155
  • doing, they never would havecrucified the Lord of Glory.
  • 00:24:35.289 --> 00:24:37.825
  • You see, what happened withthe cross was the God fooled
  • 00:24:37.958 --> 00:24:41.729
  • even the devil. The devil, itwas so far, the wisdom of the
  • 00:24:41.862 --> 00:24:46.100
  • cross was so far above the wayman thinks and so far above
  • 00:24:46.233 --> 00:24:49.970
  • the way the devil thinks, thatthe enemy who crucified Jesus
  • 00:24:50.104 --> 00:24:54.508
  • was actually pounding thatnail into his own coffin
  • 00:24:54.642 --> 00:24:58.112
  • and didn't know it.(Audience applause)
  • 00:24:58.245 --> 00:25:00.014
  • That's how great and how farabove the wisdom of the rulersof the age of the cross was.
  • 00:25:00.147 --> 00:25:04.084
