  • (Music) Coming up onChrist for All Nations...
  • 00:00:08.567 --> 00:00:11.937
  • DANIEL KOLENDA- (Music) Yousee, what happened with the
  • 00:00:13.038 --> 00:00:14.273
  • cross was that God fooled eventhe devil. The wisdom of the
  • 00:00:14.406 --> 00:00:17.309
  • cross was so far above the wayman thinks and so far above
  • 00:00:17.443 --> 00:00:21.180
  • the way the devil thinksthat the enemy was actually
  • 00:00:21.313 --> 00:00:24.516
  • pounding that nail into his owncoffin and didn't know it.(Audience applause)
  • 00:00:24.650 --> 00:00:28.187
  • That's how great and how farabove the wisdom of the rulersof the age of the cross was.
  • 00:00:28.320 --> 00:00:33.092
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:33.225 --> 00:00:43.268
  • REINHARD BONNKE- He hascome to break every chain
  • 00:00:43.402 --> 00:00:45.604
  • and to unlock every prison door.
  • 00:00:45.737 --> 00:00:49.641
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:49.775 --> 00:00:51.410
  • DANIEL- He turnsdarkness into light.
  • 00:00:51.543 --> 00:00:55.114
  • He turns sin into salvation.
  • 00:00:55.247 --> 00:00:57.716
  • He turns bondage into freedom.
  • 00:00:57.850 --> 00:01:00.853
  • And He changes usfrom the inside out.
  • 00:01:00.986 --> 00:01:03.222
  • (Music)
  • 00:01:03.355 --> 00:01:13.599
  • DANIEL- Hello everybody. I'myour host, Daniel Kolenda, and
  • 00:01:13.732 --> 00:01:16.668
  • it's my privilege to welcomeyou today to another broadcast
  • 00:01:16.802 --> 00:01:19.771
  • of Christ for All Nations.Today we're gonna be
  • 00:01:19.905 --> 00:01:22.474
  • discussing a topic that isespecially relevant given the
  • 00:01:22.608 --> 00:01:26.111
  • current climate in our world,and that is the subject of
  • 00:01:26.245 --> 00:01:29.047
  • spiritual warfare. Now whetheryou're concerned about the
  • 00:01:29.181 --> 00:01:31.984
  • health crisis, the economy,the world of politics, or the
  • 00:01:32.117 --> 00:01:36.288
  • many social, moral andspiritual problems that we're
  • 00:01:36.421 --> 00:01:39.158
  • facing at the moment, whatwe're talking about today is
  • 00:01:39.291 --> 00:01:42.494
  • relevant and affects all ofit. The Book of Ephesians, 6,
  • 00:01:42.628 --> 00:01:45.297
  • verse 12, tells us that wewrestle not against flesh
  • 00:01:45.430 --> 00:01:48.433
  • and blood, but againstprincipalities, against
  • 00:01:48.567 --> 00:01:50.802
  • powers, against the rulers ofthe darkness of this world,
  • 00:01:50.936 --> 00:01:54.006
  • and against spiritualwickedness in high places.
  • 00:01:54.139 --> 00:01:56.408
  • In other words, the strugglesthat we face in our lives are
  • 00:01:56.542 --> 00:01:59.845
  • not primarily natural battles,even though they often feel
  • 00:01:59.978 --> 00:02:03.615
  • that way. But actually, weare contending with invisible
  • 00:02:03.749 --> 00:02:06.785
  • spiritual forces. That's theChristian world view and
  • 00:02:06.919 --> 00:02:10.255
  • that's the view of the Bible.And so, as Christians it's
  • 00:02:10.389 --> 00:02:13.358
  • imperative that we understandthe spiritual reality and
  • 00:02:13.492 --> 00:02:16.261
  • learn how to win our battlesthere. We're gonna get into
  • 00:02:16.395 --> 00:02:19.298
  • that on the program today. Butfirst, I want to invite you to
  • 00:02:19.431 --> 00:02:22.534
  • send in your prayer requests.I know many of you have
  • 00:02:22.668 --> 00:02:24.736
  • needs in your life. And ourministry, Christ for All
  • 00:02:24.870 --> 00:02:27.105
  • Nations, is a prayingministry. We're praying for

  • 00:02:40.953 --> 00:02:43.722
  • you. And now, sit back, relax,and enjoy this teaching onSlaying Dragons.
  • 00:02:43.855 --> 00:02:49.928
  • (Music)
  • 00:02:50.062 --> 00:02:54.233
  • Today we're gonna be talkingabout spiritual warfare.
  • 00:02:54.366 --> 00:02:57.703
  • And I want to startby telling you a
  • 00:02:57.836 --> 00:02:59.238
  • story about something thathappened to me in the city of
  • 00:02:59.371 --> 00:03:01.540
  • Monrovia in the nation ofLiberia. And it's a very
  • 00:03:01.673 --> 00:03:04.376
  • interesting story, sort ofan extreme example of what
  • 00:03:04.509 --> 00:03:08.614
  • spiritual warfare is. Butbefore I tell the story, I
  • 00:03:08.747 --> 00:03:10.983
  • need to give you a coupleof premises and disclaimers
  • 00:03:11.116 --> 00:03:15.554
  • because for a lot of people,especially in the Western
  • 00:03:15.687 --> 00:03:18.023
  • world, a story like this willsound very strange. And
  • 00:03:18.156 --> 00:03:21.360
  • here's one thing you need tounderstand right off the bat;
  • 00:03:21.493 --> 00:03:24.029
  • that witchcraft, that demons,that the spirit world is very,
  • 00:03:24.162 --> 00:03:28.600
  • very real. I think in theWestern world, we often
  • 00:03:28.734 --> 00:03:30.936
  • relegate things likewitchcraft, and voodoo, and
  • 00:03:31.069 --> 00:03:34.172
  • all of these different thingsto something that comes from
  • 00:03:34.306 --> 00:03:36.742
  • Disney World, or cartoons, orsomething that's in the world
  • 00:03:36.875 --> 00:03:40.078
  • of fantasy. But the reality isthat these spiritual realities
  • 00:03:40.212 --> 00:03:43.649
  • are very, very real. Andanother thing you need to
  • 00:03:43.782 --> 00:03:46.652
  • understand is that we as anevangelistic ministry and
  • 00:03:46.785 --> 00:03:49.988
  • myself as an evangelist, weencounter these forces, we
  • 00:03:50.122 --> 00:03:54.359
  • encounter these issues all thetime in Africa. In fact, I
  • 00:03:54.493 --> 00:03:56.762
  • will ask the, the localpastors to give me a list of
  • 00:03:56.895 --> 00:04:01.333
  • the local curses and the localdeities that the people live
  • 00:04:01.466 --> 00:04:04.636
  • in fear of. How many of youknow that witchcraft
  • 00:04:04.770 --> 00:04:07.706
  • and everything demonic,actually operates on fear?(Audience responds, Yes)
  • 00:04:07.839 --> 00:04:11.777
  • In fact, in the Scriptures wesee a very clear distinction
  • 00:04:11.910 --> 00:04:14.713
  • between the way the HolySpirit operates and the way
  • 00:04:14.846 --> 00:04:17.449
  • the enemy operates. The Biblesays that God has not given
  • 00:04:17.582 --> 00:04:19.885
  • us a spirit of fear, but ofpower, and of love, and of a
  • 00:04:20.018 --> 00:04:22.888
  • sound mind. So, whenever yousee fear operating, you know
  • 00:04:23.021 --> 00:04:25.991
  • that you're in the territoryof the enemy. And, and
  • 00:04:26.124 --> 00:04:29.261
  • witchcraft, especially inthe Third World, very much
  • 00:04:29.394 --> 00:04:32.230
  • operates by fear. And so, manyof these local people will not
  • 00:04:32.364 --> 00:04:35.767
  • even pronounce out loud thenames of these local deities
  • 00:04:35.901 --> 00:04:39.671
  • or curses because they'reafraid that the curse will
  • 00:04:39.805 --> 00:04:42.274
  • come upon them. And the witchdoctors will sometime give
  • 00:04:42.407 --> 00:04:45.010
  • them charms, or amulets, orfetishes, or something to hang
  • 00:04:45.143 --> 00:04:48.313
  • around their neck or to puton their body. And the witch
  • 00:04:48.447 --> 00:04:50.882
  • doctor will tell them, If youever take this off,
  • 00:04:51.016 --> 00:04:53.552
  • you will die.(Audience member responds, Wow).
  • 00:04:53.685 --> 00:04:55.087
  • So, imagine the fear that thepeople live in. And then we
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:04:57.456
  • come along, and I get thislist that has all the names of
  • 00:04:57.589 --> 00:05:00.592
  • these local deities andcurses. And with the
  • 00:05:00.726 --> 00:05:03.729
  • microphone in hand over thehuge PA system, I begin to
  • 00:05:03.862 --> 00:05:06.765
  • name them one by one, and breaktheir power in the name ofJesus. (Audience response)
  • 00:05:06.898 --> 00:05:11.236
  • And then I tell the people,Bring those fetishes, those
  • 00:05:11.370 --> 00:05:13.939
  • charms, amulets, idols,they're called, collectively
  • 00:05:14.072 --> 00:05:16.708
  • called juju. We say, Bring allof that stuff; and we pile it
  • 00:05:16.842 --> 00:05:19.644
  • up, and we douse it withgasoline, and we burn it. And
  • 00:05:19.778 --> 00:05:23.615
  • when the people see what'shappening and they see that I
  • 00:05:23.749 --> 00:05:26.685
  • didn't die on the platforminstantly from some curse,
  • 00:05:26.818 --> 00:05:29.621
  • they all look at each other andthey say, Jesus is morepowerful. (Audience response)
  • 00:05:29.755 --> 00:05:33.792
  • And so, you need a little bitof that background before you
  • 00:05:33.925 --> 00:05:36.928
  • hear this story because I wasin Monrovia in Liberia, and
  • 00:05:37.062 --> 00:05:41.299
  • there was a lady that came tothe crusade one night, and shewas a witch doctor. And she
  • 00:05:41.433 --> 00:05:45.737
  • actually came to the crusadethat night to put a curse on
  • 00:05:45.871 --> 00:05:48.073
  • me and kill me right there onthe platform. And so, she was
  • 00:05:48.206 --> 00:05:51.877
  • standing over to my right-handside in the audience. I didn't
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:55.213
  • know she was there at thistime. I didn't know anything
  • 00:05:55.347 --> 00:05:57.416
  • about this story. I was justpreaching. And if memory
  • 00:05:57.549 --> 00:06:00.252
  • serves me right, I waspreaching on the blood of
  • 00:06:00.385 --> 00:06:02.354
  • Jesus, which had to have beena divine set up. Because how
  • 00:06:02.487 --> 00:06:06.625
  • many of you know there's powerin the blood of Jesus? (Audienceapplause)
  • 00:06:06.758 --> 00:06:09.361
  • We believe that. We teachthat, and we see that
  • 00:06:09.494 --> 00:06:11.696
  • demonstrated all the time. Andso, as I'm preaching about the
  • 00:06:11.830 --> 00:06:15.233
  • blood of Jesus, this woman isover there with her fetishes,
  • 00:06:15.367 --> 00:06:17.936
  • whatever it is, her charms andshe's getting ready to hurl
  • 00:06:18.069 --> 00:06:20.972
  • this curse at me while I'mpreaching. And suddenly, and
  • 00:06:21.106 --> 00:06:24.976
  • this is when I become awareof her presence, I hear this
  • 00:06:25.110 --> 00:06:28.046
  • blood-curdling scream. And Ilook over to my right-hand
  • 00:06:28.180 --> 00:06:31.183
  • side and there is this womanon the ground, writhing like
  • 00:06:31.316 --> 00:06:34.286
  • a snake, foaming at themouth. (Audience response)
  • 00:06:34.419 --> 00:06:37.355
  • Literally the Holy Spirit hadjust hit her. I didn't know. I
  • 00:06:37.489 --> 00:06:40.692
  • didn't lay hands on her. Ididn't rebuke anything. It was
  • 00:06:40.826 --> 00:06:43.094
  • just sovereign. The Lord hither. She fell to the ground,began to manifest
  • 00:06:43.228 --> 00:06:47.566
  • So, I kept preaching.just ignored her. But
  • 00:06:47.699 --> 00:06:49.935
  • thankfully we had the, thelocal pastors trained very
  • 00:06:50.068 --> 00:06:52.904
  • well. They took that womanout. They took her to a tent
  • 00:06:53.038 --> 00:06:55.574
  • that we have behind theplatform for deliverance. And
  • 00:06:55.707 --> 00:06:58.176
  • we call it the snake pit.And back there they cast the
  • 00:06:58.310 --> 00:07:01.880
  • demons out of her; she came toher right mind. They led her
  • 00:07:02.013 --> 00:07:04.649
  • to Jesus. She became aChristian. (Audience response)
  • 00:07:04.783 --> 00:07:06.751
  • And then they brought her tome on the platform. And she
  • 00:07:06.885 --> 00:07:09.354
  • introduced herself to me likethis; she said, I came here
  • 00:07:09.488 --> 00:07:12.057
  • tonight to kill you. Nowcan you imagine someone
  • 00:07:12.190 --> 00:07:15.093
  • introducing themselves thatway. I said, Well,
  • 00:07:15.227 --> 00:07:17.329
  • it's nice to meet you, too.(Audience laughter)
  • 00:07:17.462 --> 00:07:19.297
  • She said, I came here tonightto kill you. But instead, I've
  • 00:07:19.431 --> 00:07:21.933
  • become a Christian becausetonight I've seen that your
  • 00:07:22.067 --> 00:07:25.103
  • Jesus is more powerful than mywitchcraft. (Audience applause)
  • 00:07:25.237 --> 00:07:29.174
  • Halleluiah. That's a truestory. And now, we're gonna be
  • 00:07:29.307 --> 00:07:33.845
  • talking about spiritualwarfare over the next few
  • 00:07:33.979 --> 00:07:37.382
  • minutes. But what I want youto understand, even though
  • 00:07:37.516 --> 00:07:40.018
  • that is a very extreme versionof spiritual warfare and one
  • 00:07:40.151 --> 00:07:43.955
  • that most of us and most ofyou don't encounter on a daily
  • 00:07:44.089 --> 00:07:47.592
  • basis. However, you have tounderstand that all of these
  • 00:07:47.726 --> 00:07:51.196
  • things, whether it's thelittle struggles and battles
  • 00:07:51.329 --> 00:07:54.799
  • that you face in your life, orwhether it's something dealing
  • 00:07:54.933 --> 00:07:57.769
  • with a severely demonizedperson, they all exist in the
  • 00:07:57.903 --> 00:08:00.005
  • same realm. And the same toolsand the same principles will
  • 00:08:00.138 --> 00:08:03.508
  • give you victory, whether itis in your own personal life
  • 00:08:03.642 --> 00:08:06.611
  • or on a crusade platform inthe Third World. The same
  • 00:08:06.745 --> 00:08:09.781
  • principles apply. And thereality is that most of the
  • 00:08:09.915 --> 00:08:14.019
  • spiritual battles we face arefought between the ears, right
  • 00:08:14.152 --> 00:08:18.924
  • here in this gray matter. Andthe reality is that if you can
  • 00:08:19.057 --> 00:08:22.160
  • learn to get the victory inhere, you will find tremendous
  • 00:08:22.294 --> 00:08:26.331
  • authority out there in theworld. However, if you can't
  • 00:08:26.464 --> 00:08:29.568
  • get the victory in here, youare going to have a very
  • 00:08:29.701 --> 00:08:32.504
  • difficult time having victoryover anything else in your
  • 00:08:32.637 --> 00:08:35.140
  • life. And so, I want to just,I want to just give you a new
  • 00:08:35.273 --> 00:08:39.678
  • perspective today if I can.You know, there's, the power
  • 00:08:39.811 --> 00:08:43.548
  • of perspective is somethingmost people don't understand.
  • 00:08:43.682 --> 00:08:46.851
  • Maybe you've heard of the termof a paradigm. How many of you
  • 00:08:46.985 --> 00:08:50.021
  • have heard of a paradigm? Aparadigm is the lens through
  • 00:08:50.155 --> 00:08:52.624
  • which that you see something.Very often, if you can change
  • 00:08:52.757 --> 00:08:55.727
  • your lens or you can changethe way that you're looking at
  • 00:08:55.860 --> 00:08:57.896
  • something, you will havea completely different
  • 00:08:58.029 --> 00:09:00.699
  • experience with it. And Ithink that spiritual warfare
  • 00:09:00.832 --> 00:09:03.868
  • is one of those. So, I'm gonnastart today by reading from
  • 00:09:04.002 --> 00:09:06.938
  • the Book of Genesis, chapter3. And I'm gonna read a little
  • 00:09:07.072 --> 00:09:10.041
  • passage of Scripture withyou. I want to go ahead and
  • 00:09:10.175 --> 00:09:12.277
  • apologize in advance for usingso much Scripture. I have
  • 00:09:12.410 --> 00:09:15.580
  • nothing else to say outside ofthis book. This is my source
  • 00:09:15.714 --> 00:09:19.017
  • of authority and revelation.And, and I believe that
  • 00:09:19.150 --> 00:09:22.320
  • everything, especially whenyou get into the realm of the
  • 00:09:22.454 --> 00:09:25.390
  • unseen and the supernatural,you better be basing what you
  • 00:09:25.523 --> 00:09:28.627
  • believe on this book or youare quickly going to find
  • 00:09:28.760 --> 00:09:31.796
  • yourself lost, out of yourdepth. Because remember, the
  • 00:09:31.930 --> 00:09:34.633
  • spiritual world is one thatyou can't see with your eyes.
  • 00:09:34.766 --> 00:09:36.568
  • So, you have no visible, noaudible, no sensory ability to
  • 00:09:36.701 --> 00:09:41.406
  • perceive it. That's why theScriptures serve as a guide
  • 00:09:41.539 --> 00:09:44.109
  • for us in this invisibleworld. So, let's begin,
  • 00:09:44.242 --> 00:09:46.444
  • Genesis, chapter 3, and I'mgonna read the first seven
  • 00:09:46.578 --> 00:09:50.515
  • verses. Now it says: Theserpent was more subtle than
  • 00:09:50.649 --> 00:09:53.151
  • any beast of the field whichthe Lord God had made. And he
  • 00:09:53.284 --> 00:09:55.987
  • said unto the woman, Yeah,hath God said that you shall
  • 00:09:56.121 --> 00:09:58.923
  • not eat of every tree of thegarden. And the woman said to
  • 00:09:59.057 --> 00:10:01.559
  • the serpent, we may eat ofthe fruit of the trees in the
  • 00:10:01.693 --> 00:10:03.895
  • garden. But the fruit of thetree which is in the midst of
  • 00:10:04.029 --> 00:10:06.398
  • the garden, God hath said, Youshall not eat of it, neither
  • 00:10:06.531 --> 00:10:09.567
  • shall you touch it, lest youdie. And the serpent said to
  • 00:10:09.701 --> 00:10:12.904
  • the woman, You shall notsurely die. For God knows that
  • 00:10:13.038 --> 00:10:16.708
  • in the day you eat thereof,then your eyes will be opened,
  • 00:10:16.841 --> 00:10:19.544
  • and you will be as gods,knowing good and evil. And
  • 00:10:19.678 --> 00:10:23.148
  • when the woman saw that thetree was good for food, and
  • 00:10:23.281 --> 00:10:25.183
  • that it was pleasant to theeyes, and a tree to be desired
  • 00:10:25.316 --> 00:10:28.386
  • to make one wise, she took thefruit thereof and did eat, and
  • 00:10:28.520 --> 00:10:31.056
  • gave also to her husband withher, and he did eat. And the
  • 00:10:31.189 --> 00:10:34.559
  • eyes of both of them wereopened, and they knew that
  • 00:10:34.693 --> 00:10:38.063
  • they were naked; and theysewed fig leaves together, and
  • 00:10:38.196 --> 00:10:40.632
  • made themselves aprons. Now ofcourse, this is a very famous
  • 00:10:40.765 --> 00:10:44.769
  • story. Any of you that arepart of the church, you have
  • 00:10:44.903 --> 00:10:48.039
  • heard this before. And evenpeople that don't go to
  • 00:10:48.173 --> 00:10:51.209
  • church, they know that, thatAdam and Eve ate from an apple
  • 00:10:51.342 --> 00:10:54.946
  • in the garden. Right? Nowactually the Bible doesn't say
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:58.149
  • it was an apple. And there'sno good reason to think it was
  • 00:10:58.283 --> 00:11:00.351
  • an apple. I think it was afig. And I could prove that to
  • 00:11:00.485 --> 00:11:03.421
  • you. But that's kind of besidethe point. What I really want
  • 00:11:03.555 --> 00:11:06.458
  • you to see is that it wasn'tabout an apple or a fig; that
  • 00:11:06.591 --> 00:11:10.295
  • the temptation and themoment of the fall was about
  • 00:11:10.428 --> 00:11:13.031
  • something far more insidious,something far more important.
  • 00:11:13.164 --> 00:11:17.602
  • Of course, that forbiddenfruit was the tangible, the
  • 00:11:17.736 --> 00:11:21.539
  • visible exchange that tookplace. And even today, that
  • 00:11:21.673 --> 00:11:25.376
  • forbidden fruit serves as avery powerful metaphor for us.
  • 00:11:25.510 --> 00:11:28.813
  • But I want you to see whatwas actually happening in the
  • 00:11:28.947 --> 00:11:32.083
  • fall. Satan, when he comes toEve in the Garden of Eden, he
  • 00:11:32.217 --> 00:11:37.355
  • comes to her with a verysubtle and very specific
  • 00:11:37.489 --> 00:11:40.959
  • strategy. It comes in threeparts. And if you read the
  • 00:11:41.092 --> 00:11:44.562
  • text carefully, you'll seethese three parts. First of
  • 00:11:44.696 --> 00:11:47.098
  • all, the very first thing thatSatan says to the woman is
  • 00:11:47.232 --> 00:11:50.802
  • this, Hath God said... So yousee, right out of the gate,
  • 00:11:50.935 --> 00:11:55.573
  • Satan is questioning God'sword. He's questioning what
  • 00:11:55.707 --> 00:11:58.910
  • God has said. That's strategyNumber 1. Number 2, Satan says
  • 00:11:59.043 --> 00:12:04.415
  • to the woman, You will notsurely die. Remember, God has
  • 00:12:04.549 --> 00:12:07.952
  • told her, In the day that youeat thereof you shall surely
  • 00:12:08.086 --> 00:12:10.221
  • die. And Satan says, You won'tsurely die. So now,
  • 00:12:10.355 --> 00:12:12.657
  • he's questioning God'struthfulness. Number 1, he
  • 00:12:12.791 --> 00:12:16.461
  • questions God's word. Number2, he questions God's
  • 00:12:16.594 --> 00:12:19.130
  • truthfulness. And Number 3, hequestions God's motives. And
  • 00:12:19.264 --> 00:12:24.335
  • how does he do that? He saysto Eve, Listen Even, the
  • 00:12:24.469 --> 00:12:26.137
  • reason God doesn't want you totaste this fruit is because
  • 00:12:26.271 --> 00:12:30.175
  • when you eat it, your eyeswill open and you will be like
  • 00:12:30.308 --> 00:12:32.343
  • a god, knowing good and evil.In other words, what the devil
  • 00:12:32.477 --> 00:12:35.246
  • is saying, God just wantsto hold you back. He feels
  • 00:12:35.380 --> 00:12:39.717
  • threatened by your potential.It's not that, it's not that
  • 00:12:39.851 --> 00:12:43.121
  • anything bad's gonna happen toyou. It's just that God wants
  • 00:12:43.254 --> 00:12:46.224
  • to hold you down. So, you seeSatan questioning the motives
  • 00:12:46.357 --> 00:12:49.861
  • behind the instructions that,that God has given to Adam
  • 00:12:49.994 --> 00:12:53.431
  • and Eve. So, Number 1, hequestions God's word. He
  • 00:12:53.565 --> 00:12:55.800
  • questions God's truthfulness,Number 2. And he questions
  • 00:12:55.934 --> 00:12:58.069
  • God's motives, Number 3. Andthen he closes in for the kill
  • 00:12:58.203 --> 00:13:03.107
  • with this final offer. He saysto Eve, You can be like a god.
  • 00:13:03.241 --> 00:13:09.180
  • And with this finaltemptation, the devil
  • 00:13:09.314 --> 00:13:12.383
  • overplayed his hand and showedEve, and showed us what's
  • 00:13:12.517 --> 00:13:15.653
  • really happening; because,if you know the Bible, that
  • 00:13:15.787 --> 00:13:21.025
  • offer should sound strangelyfamiliar to you because
  • 00:13:21.159 --> 00:13:24.796
  • actually it was the devilhimself who wanted to be as
  • 00:13:24.929 --> 00:13:28.199
  • God. We read about it in theBook of Isaiah, chapter 14, in
  • 00:13:28.333 --> 00:13:33.104
  • verses 13-14. Satan himselfsays, I will ascend to the
  • 00:13:33.238 --> 00:13:36.708
  • heavens. I will raise mythrone above the stars of God.
  • 00:13:36.841 --> 00:13:40.111
  • I will sit enthroned on themount of the assembly, on the
  • 00:13:40.245 --> 00:13:42.380
  • utmost height, on the utmostheights of Mount Zaphon. I
  • 00:13:42.513 --> 00:13:45.717
  • will ascend above the tops ofthe clouds. I will make myself
  • 00:13:45.850 --> 00:13:49.120
  • like the Most High. In otherwords, I want to be like God.
  • 00:13:49.254 --> 00:13:53.424
  • And here you see that thistemptation in the Garden of
  • 00:13:53.558 --> 00:13:56.794
  • Eden was not just aboutconvincing Adam and Eve to eat
  • 00:13:56.928 --> 00:14:00.064
  • a piece of fruit. That wouldhave been silly. It wasn't
  • 00:14:00.198 --> 00:14:03.101
  • even just about convincingAdam and Eve to disobey, even
  • 00:14:03.234 --> 00:14:06.804
  • though that was bad enough.But what was happening in this
  • 00:14:06.938 --> 00:14:09.274
  • exchange, if you, if you watchand you read carefully, is
  • 00:14:09.407 --> 00:14:13.044
  • that Satan, through thisexchange was passing on to
  • 00:14:13.177 --> 00:14:16.614
  • Adam and Eve his way ofthinking, (Audience response)
  • 00:14:16.748 --> 00:14:19.450
  • his mind, his imagination.Adam and Eve partook of that
  • 00:14:19.584 --> 00:14:24.989
  • forbidden fruit. But what theyreally did was they imbibed
  • 00:14:25.123 --> 00:14:27.558
  • the satanic way of thinkingthat has persisted among the
  • 00:14:27.692 --> 00:14:31.863
  • human race today. And if youread the Scriptures, now with
  • 00:14:31.996 --> 00:14:34.866
  • this new paradigm what you'regonna see is that this
  • 00:14:34.999 --> 00:14:38.369
  • condition is endemic in thehuman race. In fact, every
  • 00:14:38.503 --> 00:14:42.774
  • human being comes into theworld, the Bible talks how
  • 00:14:42.907 --> 00:14:45.543
  • we're born in sin. It's the,it's the doctrine of original
  • 00:14:45.677 --> 00:14:48.012
  • sin. The reality is theproblem is that as natural
  • 00:14:48.146 --> 00:14:52.417
  • human beings, we think in away that is demonic. I'll
  • 00:14:52.550 --> 00:14:55.053
  • prove this to you. I'm gonnaput some Scriptures up here on
  • 00:14:55.186 --> 00:14:57.622
  • the screen. I'm gonna askeverybody in the studio
  • 00:14:57.755 --> 00:14:59.357
  • audience to read these withme. And I want to also invite
  • 00:14:59.490 --> 00:15:01.693
  • those of you watching to readthese with me as well because
  • 00:15:01.826 --> 00:15:04.362
  • I want this to sink into yourheart. I want you to have the
  • 00:15:04.495 --> 00:15:07.532
  • revelation of this. So, we'regonna start with 1 John,
  • 00:15:07.665 --> 00:15:10.001
  • chapter 2, reading verses15-16. Let's read it together:
  • 00:15:10.134 --> 00:15:13.838
  • (Audience reading aloud) Donot love the world or the
  • 00:15:13.972 --> 00:15:16.674
  • things in the world. If anyoneloves the world, the love of
  • 00:15:16.808 --> 00:15:21.346
  • the Father is not in him. Forall that is in the world, the
  • 00:15:21.479 --> 00:15:25.650
  • lust of the flesh, and thelust of the eyes, and the
  • 00:15:25.783 --> 00:15:29.220
  • pride of life, is not of theFather, but is of the world.
  • 00:15:29.354 --> 00:15:34.792
  • Now we just read that passagefrom the Book of Genesis where
  • 00:15:34.926 --> 00:15:37.562
  • you saw the temptation of Adamand Eve. Now I want to show
  • 00:15:37.695 --> 00:15:41.265
  • you something that this, what,what John told us lines up
  • 00:15:41.399 --> 00:15:44.535
  • directly, almost point forpoint with that story.
  • 00:15:44.669 --> 00:15:48.306
  • Remember it says in Genesis,3:6, that Eve saw the fruit of
  • 00:15:48.439 --> 00:15:53.544
  • the trees, that it was goodfor food. That's the lust of
  • 00:15:53.678 --> 00:15:56.280
  • the flesh. And it was pleasingto the eyes. That's the,
  • 00:15:56.414 --> 00:16:00.952
  • that's the lust of the eyes.And it was, it was desirable
  • 00:16:01.085 --> 00:16:05.923
  • for gaining wisdom. That's thepride of life. You see this?(Audience responds, Yes)
  • 00:16:06.057 --> 00:16:11.362
  • So, John says that iseverything that's in the
  • 00:16:11.496 --> 00:16:13.698
  • world; the way the worldthinks, the way the world
  • 00:16:13.831 --> 00:16:16.467
  • acts, the world's motives. Allthat there is in the world
  • 00:16:16.601 --> 00:16:20.805
  • falls into one of these threecategories; the lust of the
  • 00:16:20.938 --> 00:16:22.840
  • flesh, the lust of the eyes,and the pride of life. And you
  • 00:16:22.974 --> 00:16:25.009
  • see it right there in thatexchange in the Book of
  • 00:16:25.143 --> 00:16:27.178
  • Genesis when, when Satanoffers Eve that food. Okay,
  • 00:16:27.311 --> 00:16:30.982
  • let's, let's read anotherpassage together. This is
  • 00:16:31.115 --> 00:16:33.351
  • Romans, chapter 8, verse7. Let's read together:
  • 00:16:33.484 --> 00:16:36.921
  • (Audience reading aloud) Thecarnal mind is enmity against
  • 00:16:37.055 --> 00:16:40.158
  • God; for it is not subject tothe law of God, nor indeed can
  • 00:16:40.291 --> 00:16:46.597
  • be. So, the word, carnal,means natural. It means
  • 00:16:46.731 --> 00:16:50.134
  • worldly. It means the waythat, basically all human
  • 00:16:50.268 --> 00:16:55.473
  • beings think in their natural,fallen condition. And notice
  • 00:16:55.606 --> 00:16:59.210
  • what it says, that the way theworld thinks is not only not
  • 00:16:59.343 --> 00:17:01.112
  • godly; in other words, it'snot just not good. It is
  • 00:17:01.245 --> 00:17:05.716
  • actually ungodly. You see.It's not somewhere in the
  • 00:17:05.850 --> 00:17:10.221
  • middle. It's not like you havegodly over, ungodly over here,
  • 00:17:10.354 --> 00:17:13.057
  • and then there's this neutralground that most people fall
  • 00:17:13.191 --> 00:17:15.626
  • into. That's the way we normallythink, isn't it? (Audienceresponds, Yes)
  • 00:17:15.760 --> 00:17:17.695
  • That you have good people,you have bad people, and then
  • 00:17:17.829 --> 00:17:19.764
  • there's just everybody elsein between. That's not the
  • 00:17:19.897 --> 00:17:21.933
  • biblical world view. There isthe godly way of thinking, and
  • 00:17:22.066 --> 00:17:25.436
  • everything else falls intothis other category. And it
  • 00:17:25.570 --> 00:17:28.406
  • says that no only is thisnatural mind not subject to
  • 00:17:28.539 --> 00:17:31.509
  • the law of God, but it cannotbe. See, this is what you face
  • 00:17:31.642 --> 00:17:36.481
  • when you go out into the worldaround you. Don't get angry
  • 00:17:36.614 --> 00:17:38.816
  • with sinners for beingsinners. They cannot help it.
  • 00:17:38.950 --> 00:17:43.287
  • They have no other way ofthinking. They cannot, in
  • 00:17:43.421 --> 00:17:45.957
  • their own selves, change theway that they think to a godly
  • 00:17:46.090 --> 00:17:48.793
  • way. It's impossible for thenatural mind to think that
  • 00:17:48.926 --> 00:17:52.163
  • way. Let's read, Ephesians,chapter 2, verses 1 and 3:
  • 00:17:52.296 --> 00:17:56.667
  • (Audience reading aloud) Asfor you, you were dead in your
  • 00:17:56.801 --> 00:17:59.837
  • transgressions and sins inwhich you used to live when
  • 00:17:59.971 --> 00:18:04.775
  • you followed the ways of thisworld and of the ruler of the
  • 00:18:04.909 --> 00:18:09.113
  • kingdom of the air, the spiritwho is not at work in those
  • 00:18:09.247 --> 00:18:13.851
  • who are disobedient. This ispowerful. See, look at the
  • 00:18:13.985 --> 00:18:18.222
  • way that the Apostle Pauldescribes people who are not
  • 00:18:18.356 --> 00:18:22.026
  • born again. It's, he describesthem as dead. Now let me ask
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:25.997
  • you a question, What can a deadman do for himself? (Audienceresponds, Nothing)
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:29.634
  • Nothing. They are, they arehopeless. They are helpless.
  • 00:18:29.767 --> 00:18:33.771
  • They have no way of affectingtheir condition because
  • 00:18:33.905 --> 00:18:36.641
  • they're dead in theirtrespasses and sins. And not
  • 00:18:36.774 --> 00:18:39.277
  • only that, they're followingthe ruler of the air, which is
  • 00:18:39.410 --> 00:18:42.313
  • another word for the devilhimself, for Satan. They're
  • 00:18:42.446 --> 00:18:45.516
  • gratifying the cravings of theflesh. In other words, they're
  • 00:18:45.650 --> 00:18:48.686
  • a slave to their desires,their impulses, their
  • 00:18:48.819 --> 00:18:51.589
  • addictions, and theircompulsions. How many have
  • 00:18:51.722 --> 00:18:53.591
  • remembered before you knewJesus? Remember how you just
  • 00:18:53.724 --> 00:18:56.394
  • followed those cravings of theflesh, those impulses, going
  • 00:18:56.527 --> 00:18:59.897
  • from impulse to impulse,pleasure to pleasure. So
  • 00:19:00.031 --> 00:19:03.234
  • much so that you were stillmiserable in the midst of it
  • 00:19:03.367 --> 00:19:05.503
  • and trying frantically to dosomething that would make you
  • 00:19:05.636 --> 00:19:09.307
  • happy. This is the way thatthe world is. And it says
  • 00:19:09.440 --> 00:19:13.311
  • something very important here,which especially this is a
  • 00:19:13.444 --> 00:19:16.347
  • room full of evangelists, weneed to remember that they are
  • 00:19:16.480 --> 00:19:19.016
  • deserving of God's anger,deserving of God's wrath. You
  • 00:19:19.150 --> 00:19:23.854
  • know, there are, there aresome people that preach the
  • 00:19:23.988 --> 00:19:26.457
  • Gospel, they think, wellpeople deserve salvation. No.
  • 00:19:26.591 --> 00:19:28.993
  • We, we don't deservesalvation. You didn't deserve
  • 00:19:29.126 --> 00:19:32.096
  • salvation. The world doesn'tdeserve anything but wrath.
  • 00:19:32.230 --> 00:19:35.900
  • And that's why the cross ismercy. It's not God giving
  • 00:19:36.033 --> 00:19:39.537
  • people what they deserve. It'sactually the mercy of God.
  • 00:19:39.670 --> 00:19:42.773
  • Let's read together first,sorry, Colossians, chapter 1,verse 21. It says:
  • 00:19:42.907 --> 00:19:48.579
  • (Audience reading aloud) Onceyou were alienated from God
  • 00:19:48.713 --> 00:19:51.716
  • and were enemies in your mindsbecause of your evil behavior.
  • 00:19:51.849 --> 00:19:56.487
  • Look at this passage goes evenfurther than the one before
  • 00:19:56.621 --> 00:19:59.023
  • it. It says that you were,that we were before Christ
  • 00:19:59.156 --> 00:20:02.026
  • alienated or separated fromGod, and we were enemies of
  • 00:20:02.159 --> 00:20:06.530
  • God. Where were we enemies? Inour minds. Are you starting
  • 00:20:06.664 --> 00:20:10.801
  • to see this? (Audienceresponds, Yeah)
  • 00:20:10.935 --> 00:20:12.136
  • You see, Satan passed his wayof thinking on, and human
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:15.206
  • beings to this day are bornwith that satanic thought
  • 00:20:15.339 --> 00:20:18.609
  • pattern that has made them,literally made them enemies of
  • 00:20:18.743 --> 00:20:21.512
  • God in their minds. FirstCorinthians, chapter 2,verses 14-16:
  • 00:20:21.646 --> 00:20:26.817
  • (Audience reading aloud) Butthe natural man receiveth not
  • 00:20:26.951 --> 00:20:29.854
  • the things of the Spirit ofGod: of they are foolishness
  • 00:20:29.987 --> 00:20:33.791
  • unto him; neither can heknow them, because they are
  • 00:20:33.924 --> 00:20:38.629
  • spiritually discerned. Againwe see it. The natural mind is
  • 00:20:38.763 --> 00:20:42.300
  • incapable of understanding thethings of God. The natural
  • 00:20:42.433 --> 00:20:46.704
  • mind simply has no access tothe things of the Spirit. It's
  • 00:20:46.837 --> 00:20:50.474
  • almost like when human beingscome into this world, we are
  • 00:20:50.608 --> 00:20:53.577
  • programmed to one frequency.And God is in a totally
  • 00:20:53.711 --> 00:20:57.648
  • different frequency. Ormaybe that's even not even a
  • 00:20:57.782 --> 00:21:00.551
  • sufficient analogy. It's likewe're on one, we're on a radio
  • 00:21:00.685 --> 00:21:03.554
  • frequency and God is on atotally different system.
  • 00:21:03.688 --> 00:21:06.657
  • He's digital. He's somethingelse. (Audience laughter)
  • 00:21:06.791 --> 00:21:08.659
  • He's not even in the sameuniverse as ours. And the
  • 00:21:08.793 --> 00:21:10.928
  • natural man has no access tothe things of the Spirit.
  • 00:21:11.062 --> 00:21:16.400
  • Okay so, now let's see throughanother Scripture, let's see
  • 00:21:16.534 --> 00:21:18.736
  • this principle in action. I'mnot gonna ask you to read this
  • 00:21:18.869 --> 00:21:21.439
  • with me, but I want to readthis to you in Matthew,
  • 00:21:21.572 --> 00:21:24.041
  • chapter 16, verses 22-23. Wesee this very interesting
  • 00:21:24.175 --> 00:21:28.346
  • exchange between Jesus andPeter. Now before, before I
  • 00:21:28.479 --> 00:21:31.582
  • read this, I want to remindyou what's just happened.
  • 00:21:31.716 --> 00:21:33.851
  • Jesus, and Peter, and thedisciples, they went to
  • 00:21:33.984 --> 00:21:36.220
  • Caesarea Philippi. This is theplace where Jesus said to the
  • 00:21:36.354 --> 00:21:38.889
  • disciples. He said, Who do mensay that I am. Remember this.
  • 00:21:39.023 --> 00:21:41.492
  • And some say You're Moses.Some say Elijah, one of the
  • 00:21:41.625 --> 00:21:44.061
  • other prophets. Who do you saythat I am? And Peter says, You
  • 00:21:44.195 --> 00:21:46.764
  • are the Christ, the Son ofthe Living God. And what does
  • 00:21:46.897 --> 00:21:48.632
  • Jesus say to Peter, Blessedare you for flesh and blood
  • 00:21:48.766 --> 00:21:52.203
  • did not reveal this to you,but My Father I heaven. In
  • 00:21:52.336 --> 00:21:54.638
  • other words, what Jesus saysto Peter here is, Peter, you
  • 00:21:54.772 --> 00:21:56.974
  • just had a supernatural,God-given revelation of Who I
  • 00:21:57.108 --> 00:22:01.946
  • am. Good job, Peter. Andeverybody claps. And I think
  • 00:22:02.079 --> 00:22:04.582
  • Peter thought really, hethought, Yeah, I'm good, man.
  • 00:22:04.715 --> 00:22:06.650
  • I'm getting this thing down.And he got a little too full
  • 00:22:06.784 --> 00:22:09.553
  • of himself. Because then thevery next thing Jesus does is
  • 00:22:09.687 --> 00:22:12.990
  • He starts to talk to themabout how He is going to go
  • 00:22:13.124 --> 00:22:15.926
  • to the cross. He starts todescribe how He's going to
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:18.729
  • suffer and He's going to diefor their sins. Now death on a
  • 00:22:18.863 --> 00:22:22.466
  • cross doesn't seem to Peterlike a very good idea.
  • 00:22:22.600 --> 00:22:27.304
  • Probably to no one, death on across seems like a very good
  • 00:22:27.438 --> 00:22:31.675
  • idea. And remember, Peter nowhas these great revelations.
  • 00:22:31.809 --> 00:22:36.147
  • And I think Peter thought tohimself, I need to, I need to
  • 00:22:36.280 --> 00:22:37.848
  • set Jesus straight here. I'mthe one that gets all these
  • 00:22:37.982 --> 00:22:40.384
  • great revelations. So, it saysin verse 22: Peter took him
  • 00:22:40.518 --> 00:22:43.421
  • aside and began to rebuke him,saying and said, Never, Lord!
  • 00:22:43.554 --> 00:22:46.957
  • This shall never happen toyou. Now Peter thought he was
  • 00:22:47.091 --> 00:22:50.027
  • being a good guy. He thoughthe was helping Jesus. He was
  • 00:22:50.161 --> 00:22:52.963
  • encouraging Jesus that such aterrible fate would never come
  • 00:22:53.097 --> 00:22:56.600
  • to Him. But Jesus said to him,Get behind me, Satan! Listen
  • 00:22:56.734 --> 00:23:02.606
  • to this next phrase: You are astumbling block to me... Why?
  • 00:23:02.740 --> 00:23:05.643
  • ...you do not have in mind theconcerns of God, but merely
  • 00:23:05.776 --> 00:23:11.482
  • human concerns. Another way oftranslating that is, You are
  • 00:23:11.615 --> 00:23:14.852
  • not thinking as God thinks.You are thinking as man
  • 00:23:14.985 --> 00:23:20.491
  • thinks. That's literally whatJesus said to Peter. But I
  • 00:23:20.624 --> 00:23:25.162
  • want you to notice some veryclear deductions that you can
  • 00:23:25.296 --> 00:23:27.932
  • make from this passage. Number1, the way that Peter was
  • 00:23:28.065 --> 00:23:30.701
  • thinking when he rebuked Jesusfor wanting to go to the
  • 00:23:30.835 --> 00:23:32.770
  • cross; it was a natural,human, carnal way of thinking.
  • 00:23:32.903 --> 00:23:37.374
  • Not only that, it's clear thatthat carnal, natural way of
  • 00:23:37.508 --> 00:23:41.946
  • thinking is not the way thatGod thinks. But beyond that,
  • 00:23:42.079 --> 00:23:46.684
  • Jesus calls Peter, Satan,which tells you that the way
  • 00:23:46.817 --> 00:23:49.487
  • that man thinks is demonic innature. You see this? (Audienceresponse)
  • 00:23:49.620 --> 00:23:55.759
  • Now I want you to notice thereason that Peter rebuked
  • 00:23:55.893 --> 00:23:57.695
  • Jesus because He was talkingabout going to the cross.
  • 00:23:57.828 --> 00:24:01.298
  • This is very, very important,because you see, the cross,
  • 00:24:01.432 --> 00:24:03.567
  • we understand, is utterfoolishness to the carnal
  • 00:24:03.701 --> 00:24:06.837
  • mind. This is one of the, thisis one of the fundamental
  • 00:24:06.971 --> 00:24:09.540
  • tenets of the Gospel. Paulsays, It's foolishness to the
  • 00:24:09.673 --> 00:24:12.743
  • Greek. It's a stumbling blockto the Jew. But it's the power
  • 00:24:12.877 --> 00:24:15.179
  • of God and it's the wisdomof God. Peter could not
  • 00:24:15.312 --> 00:24:18.949
  • understand how going to across would accomplish the
  • 00:24:19.083 --> 00:24:23.654
  • purposes of God. The worlddidn't understand it. You know
  • 00:24:23.787 --> 00:24:27.024
  • who else didn't understand it?The devil didn't understand
  • 00:24:27.157 --> 00:24:29.059
  • it. In fact, we read in, inthe Scriptures, it says that
  • 00:24:29.193 --> 00:24:31.862
  • if the rulers of this age hadunderstood what they were
  • 00:24:31.996 --> 00:24:34.164
  • doing, they never would havecrucified the Lord of Glory.
  • 00:24:34.298 --> 00:24:36.834
  • You see, what happened withthe cross was the God fooled
  • 00:24:36.967 --> 00:24:40.738
  • even the devil. The devil, itwas so far, the wisdom of the
  • 00:24:40.871 --> 00:24:45.109
  • cross was so far above the wayman thinks and so far above
  • 00:24:45.242 --> 00:24:48.979
  • the way the devil thinks, thatthe enemy who crucified Jesus
  • 00:24:49.113 --> 00:24:53.517
  • was actually pounding thatnail into his own coffin
  • 00:24:53.651 --> 00:24:57.121
  • and didn't know it.(Audience applause)
  • 00:24:57.254 --> 00:24:59.023
  • That's how great and how farabove the wisdom of the rulersof the age of the cross was.
  • 00:24:59.156 --> 00:25:03.093
