  • anyone after you are prayed for,
  • 00:00:11.070 --> 00:00:12.130
  • for healing, "I am healed.
  • 00:00:12.130 --> 00:00:14.000
  • By the stripe of Jesus, I am,"
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:16.140
  • present tense, "healed"?
  • 00:00:16.140 --> 00:00:17.240
  • But you don't look healed.
  • 00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:18.230
  • "But I am healed."
  • 00:00:18.230 --> 00:00:19.270
  • But you don't sound healed.
  • 00:00:19.270 --> 00:00:21.210
  • "But I'm healed."
  • 00:00:21.210 --> 00:00:22.250

  • - Joseph Prince: The spirit of
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:35.050
  • faith is like this.
  • 00:00:35.050 --> 00:00:36.230
  • I believe and therefore I speak,
  • 00:00:37.160 --> 00:00:40.160
  • amen?
  • 00:00:40.160 --> 00:00:41.070
  • I believe and therefore I speak.
  • 00:00:41.070 --> 00:00:43.090
  • We are made in God's image.
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:45.120
  • That's how God is.
  • 00:00:45.120 --> 00:00:46.230
  • When God saw darkness in Genesis
  • 00:00:46.230 --> 00:00:49.000
  • 1, all right, what did God say?
  • 00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:51.010
  • "Light be."
  • 00:00:51.010 --> 00:00:53.170
  • God didn't--listen.
  • 00:00:53.170 --> 00:00:54.280
  • God didn't say what he saw.
  • 00:00:54.280 --> 00:00:57.270
  • He said what he wanted to see.
  • 00:00:59.250 --> 00:01:02.270
  • There's a secret in your life.
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:04.210
  • You want good things to happen
  • 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:05.220
  • in your life, you want
  • 00:01:05.220 --> 00:01:06.250
  • the blessings of God to manifest
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:07.280
  • in your life, you've got to
  • 00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:09.080
  • believe it first and then
  • 00:01:09.080 --> 00:01:10.250
  • how do you release it?
  • 00:01:10.250 --> 00:01:11.220
  • You speak.
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:12.270
  • The spirit of faith has
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:14.130
  • these two components:
  • 00:01:14.130 --> 00:01:16.030
  • believe and then you speak.
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:18.110
  • I'll tell you what people do,
  • 00:01:18.110 --> 00:01:19.010
  • okay, many a times.
  • 00:01:19.010 --> 00:01:20.020
  • "Ah, we're waiting for
  • 00:01:20.020 --> 00:01:21.000
  • a holiday.
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:21.170
  • I know it just wanna--I just
  • 00:01:21.170 --> 00:01:22.190
  • know it's gonna happen."
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:23.290
  • One of the kids will fall sick,
  • 00:01:23.290 --> 00:01:26.150
  • "Always like that one,"
  • 00:01:26.150 --> 00:01:28.040
  • you know?
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:30.030
  • Or something good happens and
  • 00:01:30.030 --> 00:01:31.130
  • you say, "I don't know--I
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:32.210
  • can't--it's too good to be true.
  • 00:01:32.210 --> 00:01:34.230
  • Something will happen that will
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:37.040
  • cause me not to be chosen for
  • 00:01:37.040 --> 00:01:39.020
  • promotion," or whatever it is.
  • 00:01:39.020 --> 00:01:40.080
  • There's always something
  • 00:01:40.080 --> 00:01:41.060
  • bad you wanna say.
  • 00:01:41.060 --> 00:01:42.160
  • You know why?
  • 00:01:42.160 --> 00:01:43.040
  • Because you believe
  • 00:01:43.040 --> 00:01:43.240
  • it in your heart.
  • 00:01:43.240 --> 00:01:44.160
  • You believe it in your heart
  • 00:01:44.160 --> 00:01:46.010
  • and then, guess what?
  • 00:01:46.010 --> 00:01:47.000
  • You speak it out.
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:48.200
  • So you believe, then you speak.
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:50.070
  • And then you see.
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:51.130
  • And because of what you see,
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:53.030
  • now you believe more and then
  • 00:01:53.030 --> 00:01:54.130
  • you speak because of
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:55.150
  • what you believed.
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:56.120
  • And then because you speak it,
  • 00:01:56.120 --> 00:01:57.170
  • you see it.
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:01:58.240
  • Imagine if God saw darkness
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:00.230
  • which he did in the beginning
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:02.180
  • No, God calls those things that
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:12.180
  • are not as though they are and
  • 00:02:12.180 --> 00:02:15.070
  • there's one thing about God that
  • 00:02:15.070 --> 00:02:17.090
  • we all need to follow after,
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:19.110
  • all right?
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:20.080
  • God doesn't speak what he sees.
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:23.240
  • He speaks what he wants to see,
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:26.140
  • amen.
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.220
  • He calls out from the invisible
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:29.290
  • realm--it's already there in
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:31.100
  • the invisible realm, but he
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:32.160
  • calls it forth into the visible.
  • 00:02:32.160 --> 00:02:34.210
  • He calls it forth from the
  • 00:02:34.210 --> 00:02:37.200
  • intangible.
  • 00:02:37.200 --> 00:02:38.130
  • We tend to think, like, faith is
  • 00:02:38.130 --> 00:02:39.130
  • like, you know, every day in
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:41.230
  • every way I'm getting better and
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:43.030
  • better, like, auto-suggestion.
  • 00:02:43.030 --> 00:02:44.230
  • No, no, no, no, I'm telling you,
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:45.290
  • you can use that kind of faith
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:46.270
  • on cancer, on disease, you'll
  • 00:02:46.270 --> 00:02:48.060
  • find it doesn't help, amen?
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:51.090
  • It only helps to make you feel
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.190
  • better a little bit, that's all.
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:54.040
  • This is not positive thinking.
  • 00:02:54.040 --> 00:02:55.080
  • This is not positive
  • 00:02:55.080 --> 00:02:56.050
  • auto-suggestion, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:57.230
  • This is the power of God.
  • 00:02:57.230 --> 00:02:59.080
  • This is spirit of faith.
  • 00:02:59.080 --> 00:03:00.080
  • This has got to do with
  • 00:03:00.080 --> 00:03:01.070
  • the eternal God
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:02.070
  • and the way he operates.
  • 00:03:02.070 --> 00:03:04.080
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:07.020
  • All right, how does it work?
  • 00:03:07.020 --> 00:03:08.280
  • Again, let me say this.
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:10.120
  • You can be extra-devoted person,
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:13.010
  • you can be very consecrated
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:14.220
  • to God, you can be always,
  • 00:03:14.220 --> 00:03:17.030
  • like, you know, consciously
  • 00:03:17.030 --> 00:03:18.250
  • knowing that you're obeying God,
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:20.010
  • and yet you don't see
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.190
  • the blessings in your life.
  • 00:03:21.190 --> 00:03:24.010
  • You don't see the breakthroughs
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:25.140
  • in your life.
  • 00:03:25.140 --> 00:03:26.230
  • Why?
  • 00:03:26.230 --> 00:03:27.260
  • Because you believe the wrong
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:29.170
  • thing and you release it
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:31.170
  • through your mouth, amen.
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:35.110
  • You know why people murmur
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:37.080
  • and complain?
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:38.150
  • Because they believe the wrong
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:39.130
  • thing in their hearts.
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:41.040
  • People like this, they go
  • 00:03:41.040 --> 00:03:42.200
  • for holiday even.
  • 00:03:42.200 --> 00:03:43.260
  • When they just pump their car
  • 00:03:43.260 --> 00:03:45.050
  • with some petrol and all that,
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:47.060
  • as they are driving they pass by
  • 00:03:47.060 --> 00:03:48.040
  • beautiful scenery, the sun is
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:49.260
  • glowing, it's autumn,
  • 00:03:49.260 --> 00:03:52.080
  • autumn leaves all around, oh,
  • 00:03:52.080 --> 00:03:55.070
  • [speaking foreign language]
  • 00:03:55.070 --> 00:03:56.190
  • spring, amen?
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:57.170
  • It's blossoming,
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:58.150
  • it's so beautiful.
  • 00:03:58.150 --> 00:03:59.130
  • The wife says, "Look at that,
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:00.120
  • isn't it beautiful?"
  • 00:04:00.120 --> 00:04:01.040
  • And all sudden says, "I can't
  • 00:04:01.040 --> 00:04:02.000
  • believe it, how much it cost
  • 00:04:02.000 --> 00:04:04.100
  • nowadays just to have petrol,
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:06.220
  • you know?
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:08.060
  • That's crazy," you know?
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:09.120
  • And his mind is obsessed
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:10.150
  • with the fact that he paid
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:11.190
  • for that petrol.
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:13.080
  • He's not enjoying.
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:14.130
  • So the thing is that it's all in
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:15.220
  • the belief system, amen?
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:18.080
  • He didn't believe that God would
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:19.160
  • take care of his petrol as well
  • 00:04:19.160 --> 00:04:21.050
  • and bless him with more than
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:22.120
  • enough, as well as enjoy
  • 00:04:22.120 --> 00:04:23.160
  • the scenery that God has given.
  • 00:04:23.160 --> 00:04:25.020
  • But instead, he's lost and
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:26.040
  • locked into one this--
  • 00:04:26.040 --> 00:04:27.130
  • You know, like this church--like
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:28.240
  • this church that you are in.
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:30.120
  • You know how many people would
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:31.060
  • love to have this building?
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:32.190
  • And you are in this building,
  • 00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:34.150
  • but what do you do?
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:35.140
  • "Today, a bit too bright.
  • 00:04:35.140 --> 00:04:38.120
  • A bit too cold," amen?
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:40.150
  • You will seize upon something
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:42.050
  • because your belief system is,
  • 00:04:42.050 --> 00:04:43.240
  • like, you know, "I cannot
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:44.230
  • believe that God would just want
  • 00:04:44.230 --> 00:04:46.060
  • to bless me or they can--"
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:47.020
  • you know?
  • 00:04:47.020 --> 00:04:48.100
  • And whatever is not working
  • 00:04:48.100 --> 00:04:50.020
  • right, God will take care of it.
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:51.130
  • You know, you believe--you
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:52.200
  • try--these people are famous
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:53.220
  • for snatching defeat from
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:56.130
  • the jaws of victory.
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:05:00.240
  • No, I say that on purpose, amen.
  • 00:05:01.100 --> 00:05:04.100
  • "I just know that I always have
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:05.280
  • the bad breaks or I'm always
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:07.230
  • so unlucky.
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:08.200
  • If there's something good,
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.160
  • it won't happen to me."
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:11.290
  • Well, you know what?
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:12.220
  • You're right.
  • 00:05:12.220 --> 00:05:14.280
  • And after something bad happens,
  • 00:05:15.090 --> 00:05:18.090
  • they didn't get a promotion or
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:19.180
  • they didn't get the blessing or
  • 00:05:19.180 --> 00:05:20.220
  • they didn't get something,
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:21.190
  • they'll say, "See, I told you."
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:22.290
  • And they think they are
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:23.210
  • a prophet, amen.
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:28.170
  • And people like this,
  • 00:05:28.170 --> 00:05:29.100
  • they're not happy.
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.030
  • Even in a good country,
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:31.020
  • they'll find some fault.
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:32.090
  • "It's too hot.
  • 00:05:32.090 --> 00:05:34.010
  • We don't have four seasons."
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:35.180
  • "Hey, we've got 40, over,
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.120
  • kinds of food, lah.
  • 00:05:37.120 --> 00:05:38.260
  • Isn't that better?"
  • 00:05:38.260 --> 00:05:40.220
  • Amen, once they will go outside
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:41.220
  • for your four seasons, amen,
  • 00:05:41.220 --> 00:05:43.000
  • they will find fault over
  • 00:05:43.000 --> 00:05:44.190
  • something, amen?
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:47.070
  • This is a great church.
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:48.180
  • You got good-looking pastors,
  • 00:05:48.270 --> 00:05:51.270
  • amen?
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:52.290
  • Yeah.
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:56.150
  • Pastor Mike's very happy right
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:58.060
  • now.
  • 00:05:58.060 --> 00:05:59.290
  • "It's me, it's me."
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:02.180
  • So the spirit of faith, it
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:04.130
  • didn't say, "You only believe
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:05.120
  • good things and then you speak
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:06.180
  • good things and good things
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:07.150
  • will happen."
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:08.230
  • Good or bad.
  • 00:06:08.230 --> 00:06:09.200
  • You believe, you speak.
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:11.140
  • The spirit of faith is you
  • 00:06:11.140 --> 00:06:13.120
  • believe, you speak.
  • 00:06:13.120 --> 00:06:15.120
  • Jesus said, "As you have
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:16.270
  • believed, so it be done to you."
  • 00:06:16.270 --> 00:06:18.210
  • I believe good things are in
  • 00:06:18.210 --> 00:06:19.190
  • store for you this coming year.
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:22.130
  • I believe you will run smack dab
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:24.050
  • into middle of favor, amen.
  • 00:06:24.050 --> 00:06:26.070
  • I believe surely goodness and
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:27.260
  • mercy will hunt you down
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:29.240
  • all the rest of your life.
  • 00:06:29.240 --> 00:06:31.130
  • I don't care where you've been.
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:33.180
  • It's not where you're going.
  • 00:06:33.180 --> 00:06:34.230
  • You are going to favor, you're
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:35.250
  • going to higher ground, amen.
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:36.290
  • You're going to promotion in
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:38.010
  • the things of God, hallelujah!
  • 00:06:38.060 --> 00:06:41.060
  • Amen!
  • 00:06:41.060 --> 00:06:43.030
  • I believe it.
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:45.060
  • "No, no, Pastor.
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:46.270
  • Very nice of you to say that
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:48.180
  • but I don't believe it."
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:49.240
  • You are right.
  • 00:06:49.240 --> 00:06:50.260
  • As far as you are concerned,
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:52.160
  • the rest of us are going on,
  • 00:06:52.160 --> 00:06:53.240
  • amen?
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:54.220
  • Amen, we turn right,
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:55.230
  • goodness slap us.
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:57.050
  • We turn left,
  • 00:06:57.050 --> 00:06:58.100
  • favor and mercy kiss us.
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:07:01.120
  • Every which way we are blessed.
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:03.220
  • Do you believe that kind of
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:04.120
  • thing?
  • 00:07:04.120 --> 00:07:05.120
  • Yeah, believe and speak.
  • 00:07:05.120 --> 00:07:07.090
  • Okay, enough of that.
  • 00:07:07.090 --> 00:07:08.220
  • Let me give you one example
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:09.140
  • of your Papa Abraham.
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:10.260
  • All of us are at the seed of
  • 00:07:10.260 --> 00:07:12.110
  • Abraham, right?
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:13.220
  • Abraham learned from God,
  • 00:07:13.220 --> 00:07:15.030
  • God's nature.
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:16.080
  • In Romans 4 it says Abraham,
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:17.240
  • God made him a father of many
  • 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:19.060
  • nations, like "God, who quickens
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:21.000
  • the dead, and calls those things
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:22.000
  • which be not as though
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:23.030
  • they are."
  • 00:07:23.030 --> 00:07:24.000
  • So God calls those things
  • 00:07:24.000 --> 00:07:25.000
  • that are not.
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:26.180
  • Not visible, not felt, not
  • 00:07:26.210 --> 00:07:29.210
  • tangible to the human senses,
  • 00:07:29.210 --> 00:07:31.240
  • but they are real nonetheless,
  • 00:07:31.240 --> 00:07:33.190
  • eternally real.
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:35.030
  • God calls those things that are
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:36.110
  • not visible as though they are.
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:39.140
  • So God calls you
  • 00:07:39.140 --> 00:07:41.010
  • as if it already is.
  • 00:07:41.010 --> 00:07:43.010
  • So Abraham at nearly 100 years
  • 00:07:43.010 --> 00:07:45.180
  • old did not even have one son
  • 00:07:45.180 --> 00:07:47.270
  • with his wife, Sarah.
  • 00:07:48.050 --> 00:07:51.050
  • Sarah is now 90 years old, amen?
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:54.130
  • She's barren.
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:55.230
  • Actually, when Sarah was
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:56.290
  • younger, even during those
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:58.090
  • childbearing years, when she was
  • 00:07:58.090 --> 00:08:00.150
  • in her 20s and all that, she was
  • 00:08:00.150 --> 00:08:01.290
  • still not able to conceive.
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:03.290
  • Now she's 90, doubly barren,
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:08.150
  • right?
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:09.150
  • She has undergone menopause.
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:12.160
  • I used to think why they call it
  • 00:08:12.160 --> 00:08:14.010
  • men-no-pause, when it should be
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:18.040
  • women-no-pause, right?
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:19.180
  • You ever thought of that?
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:20.150
  • Womenopause,
  • 00:08:20.150 --> 00:08:21.120
  • instead of menopause?
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:22.150
  • Anyway, when some women talk,
  • 00:08:22.150 --> 00:08:23.280
  • right, women-no-pause.
  • 00:08:24.050 --> 00:08:27.050
  • Whoa, don't hit me.
  • 00:08:27.090 --> 00:08:30.090
  • Don't--all right.
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.200
  • "Where's your wife,
  • 00:08:32.200 --> 00:08:33.210
  • Pastor Prince?"
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:34.100
  • Somewhere watching.
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:35.280
  • Now, look at this.
  • 00:08:35.280 --> 00:08:37.090
  • The nature of God,
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:38.150
  • "God quickens the dead."
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:39.180
  • "Lazarus, come forth."
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:41.020
  • God is the only one
  • 00:08:41.020 --> 00:08:42.100
  • who can raise the dead.
  • 00:08:42.100 --> 00:08:43.250
  • God quickens the dead and right
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.110
  • now in Jesus's name I believe
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:46.200
  • God quickens all
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:47.230
  • the dead spots in your brain.
  • 00:08:47.230 --> 00:08:49.200
  • It's coming alive.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:51.180
  • What was that again?
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:52.230
  • First time I seen it.
  • 00:08:52.230 --> 00:08:53.270
  • It's coming alive, praise God,
  • 00:08:53.270 --> 00:08:54.280
  • amen?
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:55.220
  • God quickens the dead and
  • 00:08:55.220 --> 00:08:57.180
  • calls those things that are not
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:08:58.270
  • as though they are.
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.020
  • So Abraham and his wife Sara,
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:02.270
  • they are both barren.
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:04.240
  • They are both old
  • 00:09:04.240 --> 00:09:06.030
  • in the natural.
  • 00:09:06.030 --> 00:09:07.030
  • We are not denying that, amen.
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:08.240
  • It is real in the natural,
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.070
  • which is temporal.
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:12.280
  • And God calls those things that
  • 00:09:12.280 --> 00:09:13.270
  • are not, they are young,
  • 00:09:13.270 --> 00:09:15.230
  • they are fruitful, amen.
  • 00:09:15.230 --> 00:09:18.130
  • They are blessed,
  • 00:09:18.130 --> 00:09:19.270
  • they are father of and mother
  • 00:09:19.270 --> 00:09:21.170
  • of many nations.
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:22.290
  • And this is what God said: "Who
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:24.000
  • against hope--" In fact, God
  • 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:25.140
  • says to Abraham: "I have made
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:27.080
  • you a father of many nations."
  • 00:09:27.080 --> 00:09:29.090
  • And you know what God did?
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.110
  • God changed his name.
  • 00:09:30.110 --> 00:09:31.260
  • His name was Abram, in Hebrew,
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:34.110
  • Avram, which is high father
  • 00:09:34.110 --> 00:09:36.080
  • or exalted father.
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:38.000
  • And God inserted his name, Hei,
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:40.120
  • yud-hei-vav-hei, his Hei,
  • 00:09:40.120 --> 00:09:41.280
  • he breathed Hei into his name
  • 00:09:41.280 --> 00:09:43.190
  • and Abram became Abraham.
  • 00:09:43.190 --> 00:09:46.050
  • Abraham means
  • 00:09:46.050 --> 00:09:47.100
  • father of multitudes,
  • 00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:49.210
  • father of many nations.
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:51.110
  • Now God made him call himself
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:54.100
  • father of many nations.
  • 00:09:54.100 --> 00:09:56.080
  • Now, for us, we will not see
  • 00:09:56.080 --> 00:09:57.290
  • the relevance of this until we
  • 00:09:58.290 --> 00:10:01.290
  • realize that to call someone's
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:04.040
  • name, "father of many," when
  • 00:10:04.040 --> 00:10:06.270
  • they don't even have one son by
  • 00:10:06.270 --> 00:10:08.200
  • his wife Sarah, I mean, that
  • 00:10:08.200 --> 00:10:11.060
  • really is calling those things
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:12.190
  • that are not as though they are.
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:14.150
  • Many Christians are afraid
  • 00:10:14.150 --> 00:10:16.040
  • of doing this because they
  • 00:10:16.040 --> 00:10:17.240
  • say that they'll be lying.
  • 00:10:17.240 --> 00:10:18.280
  • No, you're not lying if you are
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:20.180
  • calling those things that God
  • 00:10:20.180 --> 00:10:21.210
  • said is a reality in your life.
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:24.080
  • How can you lie when you speak
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:25.250
  • what God speaks?
  • 00:10:25.250 --> 00:10:27.200
  • God sees farther than anyone
  • 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:29.050
  • can see.
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:31.090
  • God sees more, longer if you
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:32.270
  • want to say it that way,
  • 00:10:32.270 --> 00:10:34.070
  • than anyone can ever.
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:36.040
  • In fact, to go by your eyesight,
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:37.020
  • many a child has drowned in
  • 00:10:37.020 --> 00:10:38.220
  • a swimming pool because
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:40.080
  • it looks shallow.
  • 00:10:40.080 --> 00:10:41.250
  • Your eyes can deceive you, amen?
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:45.220
  • There are figures that you see
  • 00:10:45.220 --> 00:10:47.290
  • sometimes, you know, and those
  • 00:10:47.290 --> 00:10:49.120
  • figures, they seem like moving
  • 00:10:49.120 --> 00:10:50.110
  • but they're not moving.
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:51.240
  • Or they seem to be slanted
  • 00:10:51.240 --> 00:10:53.160
  • but they're actually equal.
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:54.200
  • Your eyes can deceive you.
  • 00:10:54.200 --> 00:10:56.190
  • But God cannot deceive you.
  • 00:10:56.190 --> 00:10:59.010
  • When God says, "This is my word.
  • 00:10:59.010 --> 00:11:01.020
  • Abraham, I have made," past
  • 00:11:01.020 --> 00:11:03.150
  • tense, "I have made you a father
  • 00:11:03.150 --> 00:11:04.200
  • of many nations."
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:06.020
  • God sees the eternal now and God
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:09.120
  • sees him already a man who is
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:12.030
  • a father of many nations when
  • 00:11:12.030 --> 00:11:14.050
  • he didn't even have one son
  • 00:11:14.050 --> 00:11:15.050
  • by Sarah.
  • 00:11:15.050 --> 00:11:16.260
  • So God changed the way he spoke.
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:19.180
  • And his daily speech, God says,
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:21.150
  • "From now on don't call
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:22.100
  • yourself Abram.
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.090
  • Call yourself Avraham,
  • 00:11:23.090 --> 00:11:24.200
  • which means father of many."
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:26.290
  • So imagine, he's out there in
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:28.070
  • the field and the wife,
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:30.010
  • 90-year-old wife, calls him,
  • 00:11:30.010 --> 00:11:31.070
  • "Father of many, Father of many,
  • 00:11:31.110 --> 00:11:34.110
  • dinner is ready," right?
  • 00:11:35.020 --> 00:11:38.020
  • And all the neighbors start
  • 00:11:38.020 --> 00:11:38.240
  • saying, "Uh-oh,
  • 00:11:38.240 --> 00:11:41.060
  • they've gone off the rockers,
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:41.280
  • or something, you know?
  • 00:11:41.280 --> 00:11:44.190
  • They want a child so much,
  • 00:11:44.190 --> 00:11:45.230
  • they've gone crazy."
  • 00:11:45.230 --> 00:11:47.110
  • That's what the world will say
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:48.020
  • about you when you start
  • 00:11:48.020 --> 00:11:50.000
  • walking in the spirit of faith
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:51.240
  • and speaking what you believe.
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:53.260
  • Have you ever told anybody,
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:55.210
  • outside church people,
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:57.190
  • that I'm a believer?
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:11:59.230
  • Jesus is my Lord?
  • 00:11:59.230 --> 00:12:01.260
  • Something powerful happens
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.150
  • when you do that, amen.
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:05.250
  • Christianity is the great
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:06.270
  • confession.
  • 00:12:06.270 --> 00:12:08.020
  • He's the high priest of
  • 00:12:08.020 --> 00:12:08.200
  • our confession.
  • 00:12:08.200 --> 00:12:10.140
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:11.260
  • Have you told anyone after you
  • 00:12:11.260 --> 00:12:12.180
  • are prayed for, for healing, "I
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:13.240
  • am healed.
  • 00:12:13.240 --> 00:12:15.050
  • By the stripe of Jesus, I am,"
  • 00:12:15.050 --> 00:12:16.260
  • present tense, "healed"?
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:18.190
  • But you don't look healed.
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:20.020
  • "But I am healed."
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:21.140
  • But you don't sound healed.
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:22.230
  • "But I'm healed," amen.
  • 00:12:22.230 --> 00:12:24.250
  • Calling those things that are
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:25.290
  • not as though they are,
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:27.200
  • like God.
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:28.290
  • So the more--the more they call
  • 00:12:29.030 --> 00:12:32.030
  • one another--she's called
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:33.110
  • Princess, like a princess of
  • 00:12:33.110 --> 00:12:35.010
  • many, and he's like a father of
  • 00:12:35.010 --> 00:12:36.290
  • multitudes, guess what happened?
  • 00:12:38.150 --> 00:12:41.150
  • The child came, right?
  • 00:12:41.150 --> 00:12:43.150
  • In order for the child to come,
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:44.220
  • the more he confessed
  • 00:12:44.220 --> 00:12:46.000
  • God's Word over her,
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:48.050
  • calling her a princess, calling
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:49.160
  • her a princess, calling her
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:50.150
  • a princess, she called him
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:51.200
  • father of many, father of many,
  • 00:12:51.200 --> 00:12:52.290
  • something happened
  • 00:12:52.290 --> 00:12:53.260
  • to their bodies, right?
  • 00:12:53.260 --> 00:12:55.030
  • Because she has undergone
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:56.030
  • menopause.
  • 00:12:56.030 --> 00:12:57.190
  • The Bible says in Hebrews 11:
  • 00:12:57.190 --> 00:12:59.220
  • "Through faith Sarah received
  • 00:12:59.220 --> 00:13:01.260
  • strength to conceive seed."
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:05.110
  • And not only that, the bonus was
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:07.220
  • that her whole body became young
  • 00:13:07.220 --> 00:13:09.130
  • again and she literally became
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:11.260
  • young because the Bible tells us
  • 00:13:11.260 --> 00:13:14.040
  • a king wanted her for his harem
  • 00:13:14.230 --> 00:13:17.230
  • and those kings are heathen
  • 00:13:17.230 --> 00:13:19.010
  • kings, you know?
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:20.060
  • They are not discerning her
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:21.230
  • spiritual beauty.
  • 00:13:21.230 --> 00:13:22.150
  • "I know she looks like a prune
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:23.190
  • outside but I discern her inner
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:27.020
  • beauty, yes, I want her inner
  • 00:13:27.020 --> 00:13:29.100
  • beauty in my harem."
  • 00:13:29.100 --> 00:13:31.020
  • No, no, no, these kings are
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:32.070
  • going by their eyeballs.
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:33.200
  • They look at her and they saw a
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:34.260
  • beautiful woman.
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:35.240
  • At 90 years old, faith changed
  • 00:13:35.290 --> 00:13:38.290
  • her entire appearance,
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:40.130
  • literally, her body, amen?
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:43.060
  • God has to reverse
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:45.080
  • the menopause, mental pause,
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:46.270
  • whatever pause, and press
  • 00:13:47.280 --> 00:13:50.280
  • the play button again, amen?
  • 00:13:53.170 --> 00:13:56.170
  • Rewind to youth, amen?
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:59.140
  • Brought her back to the days of
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:00.220
  • her youth again, hallelujah.
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:02.080
  • And there's a promise that says
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:03.160
  • God will renew your youth, amen,
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:06.250
  • your flesh shall be fresher than
  • 00:14:06.250 --> 00:14:09.030
  • a child's and God will return
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:10.240
  • you to the days of your youth.
  • 00:14:10.240 --> 00:14:12.190
  • I pray this be true for you
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:13.250
  • in Jesus's name.
  • 00:14:13.250 --> 00:14:16.010
  • So "Against hope," it was
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:19.120
  • hopeless, but he believed in
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:20.150
  • hope, amen, "that he might
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:22.100
  • become the father of many
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:24.150
  • nations; according to what was
  • 00:14:24.150 --> 00:14:26.270
  • spoken, so shall your seed be."
  • 00:14:26.270 --> 00:14:28.110
  • Now, do you think that all this
  • 00:14:28.110 --> 00:14:29.050
  • is about healing?
  • 00:14:29.050 --> 00:14:29.270
  • It's not.
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:31.250
  • It's actually faith
  • 00:14:31.250 --> 00:14:33.080
  • righteousness.
  • 00:14:33.080 --> 00:14:34.000
  • Let's go on.
  • 00:14:34.000 --> 00:14:34.260
  • "And being not weak in faith, he
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:36.270
  • considered not his own body now
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:38.060
  • dead," ha, being not weak in
  • 00:14:38.060 --> 00:14:40.140
  • faith, he considered not his own
  • 00:14:40.140 --> 00:14:42.160
  • body, "when he was about
  • 00:14:42.160 --> 00:14:45.010
  • a hundred years old, neither yet
  • 00:14:45.010 --> 00:14:46.180
  • the deadness of Sarah's womb."
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:48.080
  • So he didn't say,
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:49.250
  • "Sarah's womb is not old."
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:51.010
  • He didn't say that.
  • 00:14:51.010 --> 00:14:51.240
  • "My body is not 100 years old,"
  • 00:14:51.240 --> 00:14:52.170
  • no.
  • 00:14:52.170 --> 00:14:53.140
  • He realized her womb is dead,
  • 00:14:53.140 --> 00:14:56.040
  • my body is old, but
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:58.060
  • he considered not these things.
  • 00:14:58.110 --> 00:15:01.130
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:02.130
  • He considered what?
  • 00:15:02.130 --> 00:15:03.180
  • God's Word: "So shall your seed
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:05.250
  • be," amen.
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:07.280
  • So today also, for us, we must
  • 00:15:07.280 --> 00:15:09.250
  • confess we are the righteousness
  • 00:15:09.250 --> 00:15:11.100
  • of God in Christ while the
  • 00:15:11.100 --> 00:15:13.110
  • symptoms of sin is still present
  • 00:15:13.110 --> 00:15:15.280
  • in our minds and in our bodies.
  • 00:15:15.280 --> 00:15:18.200
  • So that is righteousness
  • 00:15:18.200 --> 00:15:21.020
  • by faith.
  • 00:15:21.020 --> 00:15:22.260
  • Are you with me so far?
  • 00:15:22.260 --> 00:15:24.150
  • All right, "He staggered not at
  • 00:15:24.150 --> 00:15:26.000
  • the promise of God through
  • 00:15:26.000 --> 00:15:27.070
  • unbelief; but was strong in
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:28.120
  • faith, giving glory to God; and
  • 00:15:28.120 --> 00:15:29.250
  • being fully persuaded that
  • 00:15:29.250 --> 00:15:32.120
  • what God had promised,
  • 00:15:32.120 --> 00:15:33.140
  • God was able also to perform.
  • 00:15:33.140 --> 00:15:35.020
  • And therefore it was imputed
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:37.050
  • to him for righteousness."
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:39.050
  • Notice it's all about faith
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:40.090
  • righteousness, "not considering
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:42.030
  • his own body like in the context
  • 00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:44.250
  • of righteousness it's like
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:46.230
  • when sin is present, you still
  • 00:15:46.230 --> 00:15:48.100
  • believe that you are righteous
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:49.230
  • in God's eyes by faith.
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:54.120
  • "Now, it was not written for
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:55.260
  • Abraham's sake alone, it
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:57.190
  • was--that it was imputed to him;
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:15:59.040
  • but for us also, to whom
  • 00:15:59.040 --> 00:16:01.030
  • righteousness shall be imputed,
  • 00:16:01.030 --> 00:16:03.110
  • if we believe on God that
  • 00:16:03.110 --> 00:16:05.090
  • raised up Jesus our Lord
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:06.100
  • from the dead."
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:07.070
  • Are you all learning so far?
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:08.110
  • Now,
  • 00:16:08.110 --> 00:16:09.060
  • I said all this to say this.
  • 00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:10.150
  • For the last verse that we are
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:13.230
  • looking at today:
  • 00:16:13.230 --> 00:16:15.190
  • the whole--everything I've
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:17.020
  • shared is to come to this.
  • 00:16:17.020 --> 00:16:18.140
  • We don't realize that we
  • 00:16:18.140 --> 00:16:20.070
  • are dead to sin.
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:21.230
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:22.170
  • Look at Romans chapter 6,
  • 00:16:22.170 --> 00:16:24.070
  • verse 1.
  • 00:16:24.070 --> 00:16:25.120
  • Just now, I mentioned that where
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:26.140
  • sin increase, grace, what?
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:27.230
  • Super-abounds.
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:29.070
  • See, it says: "What shall we
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:30.000
  • say then?
  • 00:16:30.000 --> 00:16:30.260
  • Shall we continue in sin,
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:31.290
  • that grace may abound?"
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:33.100
  • So only people who have heard
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:34.220
  • "where sin increase, grace
  • 00:16:34.220 --> 00:16:36.080
  • super-abounds, where sin
  • 00:16:36.080 --> 00:16:37.140
  • increase, grace super-abounds,"
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:38.240
  • will ask questions like this.
  • 00:16:38.240 --> 00:16:40.280
  • Obviously, these,
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:45.060
  • what do you call them,
  • 00:16:45.060 --> 00:16:46.090
  • cavaliers, all right?
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:47.180
  • They just want to find fault
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:49.010
  • with the grace message.
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:50.180
  • Even Paul preached, "Where sin
  • 00:16:50.180 --> 00:16:51.170
  • increase, grace super-abounds."
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:53.290
  • And they start saying, "So are
  • 00:16:53.290 --> 00:16:55.050
  • you saying that let us sin more
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:56.150
  • that grace may abound
  • 00:16:56.150 --> 00:16:57.160
  • because where sin increase,
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:16:58.090
  • grace super-increase?
  • 00:16:58.090 --> 00:16:59.200
  • So why don't we sin more?"
  • 00:16:59.200 --> 00:17:01.210
  • And Paul's answer is not
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:03.250
  • a negation or prohibition.
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:05.160
  • Paul did not say, "Don't do it."
  • 00:17:05.160 --> 00:17:08.020
  • He didn't say that.
  • 00:17:08.020 --> 00:17:09.030
  • Let's see what he says.
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:09.280
  • "Certainly not!
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:11.090
  • How shall we who died to sin
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:14.270
  • live any longer in it?"
  • 00:17:14.270 --> 00:17:16.220
  • His answer is an impossibility.
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:18.260
  • A true believer is dead to sin.
  • 00:17:19.190 --> 00:17:22.190
  • How can you live any longer in
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:24.040
  • it?
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:25.200
  • It's an impossibility.
  • 00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:27.020
  • Now, let me explain to you.
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:28.100
  • You say, "Pastor Prince, I don't
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:29.070
  • understand all this because
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:30.020
  • I still find sin in my life.
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:31.010
  • I still find sin.
  • 00:17:31.010 --> 00:17:32.020
  • The other day I was talking to
  • 00:17:32.020 --> 00:17:33.020
  • someone and then anger rose up
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:34.150
  • in me."
  • 00:17:34.150 --> 00:17:36.210
  • Let me just say to you, while
  • 00:17:36.210 --> 00:17:38.030
  • the anger was rising up, do you
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:39.100
  • know you are dead to sin?
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:41.020
  • While you felt it, while you
  • 00:17:41.020 --> 00:17:43.090
  • express it, while
  • 00:17:43.090 --> 00:17:44.220
  • you are fuming,
  • 00:17:44.220 --> 00:17:46.150
  • you're still dead to sin.
  • 00:17:46.150 --> 00:17:47.080
  • "So what was all that,
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:49.080
  • Pastor Prince?"
  • 00:17:49.080 --> 00:17:50.010
  • That was sin but that's not
  • 00:17:50.010 --> 00:17:51.200
  • reality the way God sees you.
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:53.240
  • You know something?
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:54.180
  • That sin has no more power
  • 00:17:54.180 --> 00:17:56.040
  • to condemn you.
  • 00:17:56.040 --> 00:17:57.070
  • Now watch this, watch this.
  • 00:17:57.070 --> 00:17:58.070
  • Hang on, hang on, hang on.
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:17:59.150
  • Lest you say, "Well,
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:01.160
  • Pastor Prince, you're saying
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:02.080
  • we can do whatever we want."
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:03.060
  • No, in fact, as I go on you
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:05.190
  • will see what it means.
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:06.200
  • But there's a teaching today
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:08.030
  • that says a Christian needs
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:09.120
  • to learn to die to sin.
  • 00:18:09.120 --> 00:18:11.180
  • That's error.
  • 00:18:11.180 --> 00:18:13.080
  • There's another one.
  • 00:18:13.080 --> 00:18:14.100
  • We are all dying to sin.
  • 00:18:14.100 --> 00:18:16.080
  • We must learn to be dying to
  • 00:18:16.080 --> 00:18:17.040
  • sin.
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.000
  • There's no such thing as dying
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:18.220
  • to sin.
  • 00:18:18.220 --> 00:18:19.130
  • Either you're dead to sin,
  • 00:18:19.130 --> 00:18:20.120
  • or you're not dead to sin.
  • 00:18:20.120 --> 00:18:21.220
  • Those in the cemetery,
  • 00:18:21.220 --> 00:18:22.240
  • you don't tell them,
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:23.130
  • "Are you dying or you're dead?"
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:25.000
  • They're dead, okay?
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:29.110
  • Now, so what does it mean,
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:30.140
  • "dead to sin"?
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:31.120
  • Let's drop down.
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:32.070
  • "Knowing that Christ having been
  • 00:18:32.070 --> 00:18:34.130
  • raised from the dead
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:35.260
  • dies no more."
  • 00:18:35.260 --> 00:18:37.050
  • This is our last passage here
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:38.050
  • and then I'm gonna show you a
  • 00:18:38.050 --> 00:18:40.000
  • testimony, okay,
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:41.000
  • and then we will close.
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:42.030
  • Now listen carefully.
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:43.010
  • This last part is most important
  • 00:18:43.010 --> 00:18:44.170
  • because this is where we miss it
  • 00:18:44.170 --> 00:18:45.160
  • many times.
  • 00:18:45.160 --> 00:18:46.080
  • Now how many know that Christ
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:47.030
  • has been raised from the dead?
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:48.150
  • He's alive today at the Father's
  • 00:18:48.150 --> 00:18:50.230
  • right hand.
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:51.260
  • Now, did he go through death?
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:53.070
  • Did he die?
  • 00:18:53.070 --> 00:18:53.270
  • Yes, he died, right?
  • 00:18:53.270 --> 00:18:56.070
  • Where did he die?
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:57.160
  • At the cross.
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:18:58.140
  • He was buried and on the third
  • 00:18:58.140 --> 00:18:59.250
  • day God raised him from
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:00.260
  • the dead.
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:01.250
  • "Knowing that Christ having been
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:02.280
  • raised from the dead
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:04.130
  • dies no more."
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:05.250
  • So where is death?
  • 00:19:05.250 --> 00:19:06.220
  • Behind Jesus.
  • 00:19:06.220 --> 00:19:07.140
  • Am I right?
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:08.130
  • Is death behind Jesus?
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:10.010
  • Yes, so "He dies no more.
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:13.100
  • Death no longer has dominion
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:14.240
  • over him."
  • 00:19:14.240 --> 00:19:15.160
  • Yeah, he's on the other side of
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:16.160
  • the grave.
  • 00:19:16.160 --> 00:19:17.170
  • He's on the other side of death,
  • 00:19:17.170 --> 00:19:18.250
  • amen.
  • 00:19:18.250 --> 00:19:20.110
  • He's beyond death now
  • 00:19:20.110 --> 00:19:21.050
  • in his resurrected life.
  • 00:19:21.050 --> 00:19:23.040
  • He can never die again.
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:24.010
  • Death has no more power
  • 00:19:24.010 --> 00:19:24.250
  • over him.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:25.190
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:26.170
  • It's got to do with you.
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:29.010
  • Listen carefully.
  • 00:19:29.010 --> 00:19:30.030
  • "For in that, the death that
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:31.150
  • Jesus died, He died to sin,"
  • 00:19:31.150 --> 00:19:33.170
  • how often?
  • 00:19:33.170 --> 00:19:35.090
  • How often?
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:37.250
  • "Once for all."
  • 00:19:37.250 --> 00:19:40.040
  • This idea of dying daily,
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:43.100
  • dying to sin, we must learn to
  • 00:19:43.100 --> 00:19:45.220
  • die to sin, are all erroneous.
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:49.030
  • Jesus died to sin how often?
  • 00:19:49.030 --> 00:19:51.120
  • Once and for all.
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:53.060
  • Listen carefully.
  • 00:19:53.060 --> 00:19:54.110
  • How did Jesus--in what way did
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:55.190
  • Jesus die to sin?
  • 00:19:55.190 --> 00:19:56.190
  • Did Jesus commit sin
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:19:57.190
  • and then die to the sin?
  • 00:19:57.190 --> 00:19:58.210
  • No, he never sinned.
  • 00:19:58.210 --> 00:19:59.210
  • He was sinless.
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:01.050
  • So what sin did Jesus die to?
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:02.270
  • The sins that were imputed
  • 00:20:02.270 --> 00:20:04.150
  • to him.
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:05.220
  • It was actually our sins
  • 00:20:05.220 --> 00:20:07.250
  • that he bore.
  • 00:20:07.250 --> 00:20:09.100
  • So in other words,
  • 00:20:09.100 --> 00:20:10.030
  • he died to imputed sin.
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:11.280
  • He died to the judgment,
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:13.130
  • the guilt,
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:15.110
  • and the condemnation of sin.
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:16.260
  • You need to know that because
  • 00:20:16.260 --> 00:20:17.240
  • if that is applied to us,
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:19.020
  • that means we have also died to
  • 00:20:19.020 --> 00:20:20.000
  • the guilt, to the judgment,
  • 00:20:20.000 --> 00:20:21.130
  • and condemnation of sin.
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:25.230
  • The only way.
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:27.050
  • Jesus didn't die to sin that
  • 00:20:27.050 --> 00:20:28.160
  • he committed.
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:29.170
  • He didn't commit any sin.
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:31.130
  • So when we--when the Bible says
  • 00:20:31.130 --> 00:20:33.050
  • we are dead, I'm getting ahead
  • 00:20:33.050 --> 00:20:34.020
  • of myself.
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:34.200
  • Just hang on,
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:35.200
  • hold your horses here.
  • 00:20:37.030 --> 00:20:40.030
  • The death he died,
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:41.060
  • how often did he die to sin?
  • 00:20:41.060 --> 00:20:43.050
  • Once and for all.
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:44.150
  • Keep that in mind.
  • 00:20:44.150 --> 00:20:45.150
  • Once and for all.
  • 00:20:45.150 --> 00:20:46.240
  • "The life that He lives,
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:47.290
  • He lives to God."
  • 00:20:47.290 --> 00:20:48.260
  • In other words, Jesus,
  • 00:20:48.260 --> 00:20:49.280
  • death is behind him.
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:51.020
  • Death has no more power
  • 00:20:51.020 --> 00:20:52.040
  • over him.
  • 00:20:52.040 --> 00:20:52.290
  • The life that he lives through
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:53.290
  • God now in heaven, he's still
  • 00:20:53.290 --> 00:20:56.100
  • 100% man, 100% God of course,
  • 00:20:56.100 --> 00:20:59.060
  • but he lives there as a man,
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:01.190
  • amen.
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:03.100
  • After the power, endless life.
  • 00:21:03.100 --> 00:21:05.130
  • Now, watch this.
  • 00:21:05.130 --> 00:21:06.220
  • "What has that got to do
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:07.140
  • with me, Pastor Prince?"
  • 00:21:07.140 --> 00:21:09.180
  • Next verse.
  • 00:21:09.180 --> 00:21:10.120
  • "Because the death He died, He
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:12.220
  • died to sin once and for all;
  • 00:21:12.220 --> 00:21:13.210
  • likewise you also,"
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:16.230
  • in New Creation Church,
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:18.210
  • in Grace Revolution Church, you
  • 00:21:18.210 --> 00:21:20.200
  • who's watching this right now,
  • 00:21:20.200 --> 00:21:23.000
  • likewise means
  • 00:21:23.000 --> 00:21:24.180
  • in the same manner.
  • 00:21:24.240 --> 00:21:27.240
  • I thought I'd put that in,
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:29.250
  • in case people don't understand
  • 00:21:29.250 --> 00:21:30.260
  • what's likewise.
  • 00:21:30.260 --> 00:21:32.070
  • "In the same manner," not indeed
  • 00:21:32.070 --> 00:21:34.190
  • in a different manner, "you also
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:36.130
  • reckon yourselves to be dead
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:39.260
  • indeed," how often?
  • 00:21:39.260 --> 00:21:41.160
  • Dead indeed means dead, once
  • 00:21:41.160 --> 00:21:43.220
  • and for all, "to sin, but alive
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:46.180
  • to God in Christ Jesus my Lord."
  • 00:21:46.180 --> 00:21:49.110
  • Now, this is the first time
  • 00:21:49.110 --> 00:21:51.100
  • in all of Paul's letters that
  • 00:21:51.100 --> 00:21:53.290
  • the phrase "In Christ Jesus"
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:57.070
  • appears, the first time.
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:21:59.120
  • In many of Paul's letters from
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:01.050
  • now on, he would talk about who
  • 00:22:01.050 --> 00:22:02.150
  • you are in Christ,
