  • ROBERT MORRIS: It's God's wordthat changes people.
  • 00:00:02.951 --> 00:00:03.952
  • It's not my illustrations.It's not my applications.
  • 00:00:04.053 --> 00:00:08.624
  • This is why I put so muchScripture in my messages,
  • 00:00:08.724 --> 00:00:10.959
  • because God's word is the onlything that will heal you.
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:15.297
  • ♪ ♪
  • 00:00:15.397 --> 00:00:29.311
  • ROBERT: When I first began tosee spiritual types and shadows,
  • 00:00:29.411 --> 00:00:33.982
  • and symbols, and things likethat in the word,
  • 00:00:34.083 --> 00:00:37.886
  • I can remember,I went in a church
  • 00:00:37.986 --> 00:00:41.323
  • and the pastor wasa part of a theological
  • 00:00:41.423 --> 00:00:46.395
  • thought persuasion that believedthat the gifts have passed away,
  • 00:00:46.495 --> 00:00:51.533
  • and that God doesn't heal today,and things like that.
  • 00:00:51.633 --> 00:00:55.471
  • But, he was beginning to seesome things in Scripture,
  • 00:00:55.571 --> 00:00:58.807
  • and he invited mefor that purpose,
  • 00:00:58.907 --> 00:01:01.243
  • to kind of helphis church along that path.
  • 00:01:01.343 --> 00:01:03.545
  • So I wasn't out of orderin preaching things,
  • 00:01:03.645 --> 00:01:06.415
  • he was wanting me to.
  • 00:01:06.515 --> 00:01:08.283
  • And one night, he said to me --or during the day,
  • 00:01:08.383 --> 00:01:11.553
  • before the night, he said,"Would you preach on healing
  • 00:01:11.653 --> 00:01:14.857
  • tonight, physical healing?"
  • 00:01:14.957 --> 00:01:16.859
  • And I know God still healstoday, and there again,
  • 00:01:16.959 --> 00:01:19.128
  • some people think Goddoesn't heal today.
  • 00:01:19.228 --> 00:01:21.029
  • But, He does heal today,and so, because God is the same
  • 00:01:21.130 --> 00:01:24.766
  • yesterday, today,and forever.
  • 00:01:24.867 --> 00:01:26.735
  • So, I mean, one verse,Hebrews 13:8,
  • 00:01:26.835 --> 00:01:31.373
  • will blow that doctrine away.
  • 00:01:31.473 --> 00:01:33.041
  • Or, it's not a doctrine,it's a dogma.
  • 00:01:33.142 --> 00:01:34.776
  • It will blow that away,because if Jesus healed
  • 00:01:34.877 --> 00:01:37.079
  • when He was on this earth,He still heals today.
  • 00:01:37.179 --> 00:01:39.148
  • He couldn't stophealing, you know.
  • 00:01:39.248 --> 00:01:40.516
  • So, I went to the Scripturesthat I had on healing,
  • 00:01:40.616 --> 00:01:42.918
  • and I thought,these are so good,
  • 00:01:43.018 --> 00:01:45.320
  • and it really doesn't matterwhat I say about healing,
  • 00:01:45.420 --> 00:01:48.157
  • it matters what the Bible says,so I think I'll just read
  • 00:01:48.257 --> 00:01:50.692
  • Scripture tonightduring the service.
  • 00:01:50.792 --> 00:01:53.328
  • So, I just got upand began to read,
  • 00:01:53.428 --> 00:01:56.198
  • starting at Exodus 26, that, "Iwill put none of the diseases
  • 00:01:56.298 --> 00:01:59.234
  • on you that I puton the Egyptians,
  • 00:01:59.334 --> 00:02:02.104
  • for I am Jehovah-Rapha,the Lord who heals you."
  • 00:02:02.204 --> 00:02:05.207
  • And I just startedreading Scriptures,
  • 00:02:05.307 --> 00:02:06.875
  • and I even went just allthrough the New Testament,
  • 00:02:06.975 --> 00:02:09.311
  • where it says that they broughtmany sick people to Him,
  • 00:02:09.411 --> 00:02:12.447
  • and Jesus laid His handson every one of them,
  • 00:02:12.548 --> 00:02:16.251
  • and healed them all.
  • 00:02:16.351 --> 00:02:18.353
  • And I just kept saying that,but the word "all"
  • 00:02:18.453 --> 00:02:20.989
  • kept popping up,but it was the Bible.
  • 00:02:21.089 --> 00:02:24.426
  • I wasn't just adding itto it, it was the Bible.
  • 00:02:24.526 --> 00:02:27.396
  • And so anyway, the next dayat lunch, when I met the pastor,
  • 00:02:27.496 --> 00:02:32.734
  • I think he mighthave gotten chewed out,
  • 00:02:32.834 --> 00:02:34.570
  • you know, by someof his members or something,
  • 00:02:34.670 --> 00:02:36.805
  • but he was upset.
  • 00:02:36.905 --> 00:02:38.440
  • And so, he said to me,"I need to talk to you."
  • 00:02:38.540 --> 00:02:42.144
  • And so, I said, "Okay."
  • 00:02:42.244 --> 00:02:44.279
  • And he said, "Do youbelieve that God
  • 00:02:44.379 --> 00:02:46.048
  • heals all diseases?"
  • 00:02:46.148 --> 00:02:49.251
  • And so, so I said,"Well, Psalm 103:3
  • 00:02:49.351 --> 00:02:55.290
  • says that He healsall your diseases."
  • 00:02:55.390 --> 00:02:58.160
  • And He said, "Yeah,but do you believe
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:02:59.494
  • He heals all of 'em?"
  • 00:02:59.595 --> 00:03:02.931
  • Now, let me just remindyou of something.
  • 00:03:03.031 --> 00:03:05.968
  • I never even told himif I believed it.
  • 00:03:06.068 --> 00:03:08.537
  • I never even said,well, I believe.
  • 00:03:08.637 --> 00:03:11.173
  • I never even said that,which I do,
  • 00:03:11.273 --> 00:03:12.641
  • but I never even said that.I simply quoted a Scripture.
  • 00:03:12.741 --> 00:03:18.180
  • So he said, "Yeah, but do youbelieve He heals all of 'em,"
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:20.716
  • kind of like that to me,and I said,
  • 00:03:20.816 --> 00:03:22.384
  • "Well, Psalm 103..."and he said to me,
  • 00:03:22.484 --> 00:03:28.023
  • "You're close-minded."[Laughter]
  • 00:03:28.123 --> 00:03:31.960
  • I thought, no,you're close-minded! Okay.
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:36.632
  • So, my point is,then I actually opened
  • 00:03:36.732 --> 00:03:42.871
  • my Bible to Psalm 103:3,
  • 00:03:42.971 --> 00:03:47.509
  • and I said to him --I said, "Look."
  • 00:03:47.609 --> 00:03:50.245
  • I said, "Look right here.
  • 00:03:50.345 --> 00:03:51.246
  • Look.Look."
  • 00:03:51.346 --> 00:03:53.815
  • "Who heals allyour diseases."
  • 00:03:53.915 --> 00:03:58.620
  • This is what he did.He went like this.
  • 00:03:58.720 --> 00:04:01.223
  • He said, "I justdon't see it."
  • 00:04:01.323 --> 00:04:06.194
  • Now, what he meant was,I don't agree with that,
  • 00:04:06.295 --> 00:04:11.800
  • but what an interestingchoice of words.
  • 00:04:11.900 --> 00:04:17.039
  • He looks right at it andhe says, "I don't see that."
  • 00:04:17.139 --> 00:04:23.512
  • I want to talk to you aboutspiritual blindness
  • 00:04:23.612 --> 00:04:27.816
  • and spiritual sight,because it takes spiritual eyes
  • 00:04:27.916 --> 00:04:33.722
  • to understand this book,
  • 00:04:33.822 --> 00:04:36.325
  • and you can be spiritually blindto this book.
  • 00:04:36.425 --> 00:04:41.330
  • So, let me tell you somethings about sight, okay,
  • 00:04:41.430 --> 00:04:43.999
  • spiritual sight.Here's number one.
  • 00:04:44.099 --> 00:04:45.934
  • Spiritual blindnesssteals our understanding.
  • 00:04:46.034 --> 00:04:53.308
  • Spiritual blindnesssteals our understanding.
  • 00:04:53.408 --> 00:04:56.678
  • In other words, you willnot understand the Bible
  • 00:04:56.778 --> 00:04:59.915
  • if you're spiritually blind,and then in the next point
  • 00:05:00.015 --> 00:05:01.983
  • I'm gonna tell you whatcauses spiritual blindness.
  • 00:05:02.084 --> 00:05:03.752
  • But, let me show you thisspiritual blindness
  • 00:05:03.852 --> 00:05:06.755
  • that the Bible talksabout a lot --
  • 00:05:06.855 --> 00:05:09.591
  • a lot, all right?
  • 00:05:09.691 --> 00:05:11.193
  • I'll get to Mark 8a long time from now.
  • 00:05:11.293 --> 00:05:14.796
  • So, all right, okay.
  • 00:05:14.896 --> 00:05:16.698
  • Isaiah 42:18, "Hear, you deaf,and look, you blind,
  • 00:05:16.798 --> 00:05:23.739
  • that you may see.
  • 00:05:23.839 --> 00:05:25.707
  • Who is blind but My servant,or deaf as My messenger
  • 00:05:25.807 --> 00:05:31.079
  • whom I send?
  • 00:05:31.179 --> 00:05:32.280
  • Who is blindas he who is perfect,"
  • 00:05:32.381 --> 00:05:35.450
  • now, we're gonna talkabout what causes blindness,
  • 00:05:35.550 --> 00:05:37.119
  • but that right there gives youa little bit of a hint.
  • 00:05:37.219 --> 00:05:40.389
  • Let me just geta little bit of ahead myself.
  • 00:05:40.489 --> 00:05:42.624
  • If you think thatyou're already there,
  • 00:05:42.724 --> 00:05:46.828
  • then you're blind.
  • 00:05:46.928 --> 00:05:50.232
  • If you think you alreadyknow everything this book
  • 00:05:50.332 --> 00:05:52.901
  • has to offer,you are blind. Okay.
  • 00:05:53.001 --> 00:05:56.271
  • So, "Who is blindbut he who is perfect,
  • 00:05:56.371 --> 00:05:58.740
  • and blind asthe Lord's servant? Watch.
  • 00:05:58.840 --> 00:06:00.575
  • "Seeing many things,but you do not observe;
  • 00:06:00.675 --> 00:06:06.381
  • opening the ears,but he does not hear."
  • 00:06:06.481 --> 00:06:12.287
  • Isaiah 43:8, "Bring outthe blind people who have eyes,
  • 00:06:12.387 --> 00:06:18.360
  • and the deaf who have ears."
  • 00:06:18.460 --> 00:06:21.129
  • Again, I'm justgiving you the verses.
  • 00:06:21.229 --> 00:06:22.297
  • You can go backand read the context.
  • 00:06:22.397 --> 00:06:24.199
  • He is talking aboutspiritual blindness
  • 00:06:24.299 --> 00:06:26.468
  • and spiritual deafness,not physical blindness
  • 00:06:26.568 --> 00:06:28.336
  • or physical deafness.
  • 00:06:28.437 --> 00:06:29.871
  • Jeremiah 5:21, "Hear this now,O foolish people,
  • 00:06:29.971 --> 00:06:33.508
  • without understanding."
  • 00:06:33.608 --> 00:06:35.777
  • Let me just remind youthat my point is,
  • 00:06:35.877 --> 00:06:37.913
  • blindness stealsour understanding.
  • 00:06:38.013 --> 00:06:41.016
  • You'll never be ableto understand the Bible
  • 00:06:41.116 --> 00:06:42.551
  • if you're spirituallyblind to it.
  • 00:06:42.651 --> 00:06:45.587
  • "Hear this now,O foolish people,
  • 00:06:45.687 --> 00:06:47.122
  • without understanding,who have eyes and see not,
  • 00:06:47.222 --> 00:06:52.661
  • and who have earsand hear not."
  • 00:06:52.761 --> 00:06:55.630
  • Ezekiel 12:2, "Son of man,you dwell in the midst
  • 00:06:55.730 --> 00:06:58.600
  • of a rebellious house," thatalso causes spiritual blindness,
  • 00:06:58.700 --> 00:07:02.771
  • rebellion, "which has eyesto see but does not see,
  • 00:07:02.871 --> 00:07:07.242
  • and ears to hearbut does not hear,
  • 00:07:07.342 --> 00:07:10.045
  • for they area rebellious house."
  • 00:07:10.145 --> 00:07:12.681
  • Zephaniah 1:17, "I will bringdisaster upon this people,
  • 00:07:12.781 --> 00:07:16.451
  • and they shall walklike blind men
  • 00:07:16.551 --> 00:07:18.887
  • because they havesinned against the Lord."
  • 00:07:18.987 --> 00:07:22.290
  • Another causeof spiritual blindness,
  • 00:07:22.390 --> 00:07:23.959
  • walking in known sin.
  • 00:07:24.059 --> 00:07:26.094
  • Matthew 13 -- now here,Jesus quotes
  • 00:07:26.194 --> 00:07:28.330
  • from the Old Testament,and watch how He ties
  • 00:07:28.430 --> 00:07:30.699
  • spiritual blindness into a lack of understanding.
  • 00:07:30.799 --> 00:07:34.636
  • Matthew 13:14, "And in themthe prophecy of Isaiah
  • 00:07:34.736 --> 00:07:38.940
  • is fulfilled, which says:Hearing you will hear
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:43.044
  • and shall not understand,
  • 00:07:43.144 --> 00:07:45.914
  • seeing you will seeand not perceive;
  • 00:07:46.014 --> 00:07:49.684
  • for the hearts of this peoplehave grown dull.
  • 00:07:49.784 --> 00:07:52.254
  • Their ears are hard of hearing,their eyes they have closed",
  • 00:07:52.354 --> 00:07:56.291
  • now watch, "lest they should seewith their eyes",
  • 00:07:56.391 --> 00:07:59.594
  • please watch this progression,"and hear with their ears,
  • 00:07:59.694 --> 00:08:03.899
  • lest they should understandwith their hearts
  • 00:08:03.999 --> 00:08:07.669
  • and turn so thatI should heal them."
  • 00:08:07.769 --> 00:08:10.739
  • Please watch that.
  • 00:08:10.839 --> 00:08:12.007
  • Jesus said they have to beable to see with their eyes
  • 00:08:12.107 --> 00:08:16.177
  • and hear with their ears,spiritual eyes and ears,
  • 00:08:16.278 --> 00:08:19.381
  • so that they canunderstand God's Word,
  • 00:08:19.481 --> 00:08:24.953
  • so that they can turn,so that I can heal them.
  • 00:08:25.053 --> 00:08:31.493
  • Please hear me, please,please, please.
  • 00:08:31.593 --> 00:08:34.062
  • The reason many people arenot spiritually healed
  • 00:08:34.162 --> 00:08:38.133
  • is because they don't turnfrom their sin.
  • 00:08:38.233 --> 00:08:42.103
  • The reason they don't turnfrom their sin
  • 00:08:42.203 --> 00:08:43.939
  • is because they don't understandwhat it's doing to them.
  • 00:08:44.039 --> 00:08:47.475
  • The reason they don't understandwhat it's doing to them
  • 00:08:47.576 --> 00:08:49.511
  • is because they'respiritually blind and deaf.
  • 00:08:49.611 --> 00:08:52.681
  • It causes you to remainphysically, mentally,
  • 00:08:52.781 --> 00:08:55.784
  • spiritually,and emotionally sick.
  • 00:08:55.884 --> 00:09:00.455
  • It's God's wordthat changes people.
  • 00:09:00.555 --> 00:09:03.625
  • It's not my illustrations.It's not my applications.
  • 00:09:03.725 --> 00:09:08.763
  • It's God's word.
  • 00:09:08.863 --> 00:09:09.965
  • This is why I put so muchScripture in my messages,
  • 00:09:10.065 --> 00:09:12.467
  • because God's word is the onlything that will heal you.
  • 00:09:12.567 --> 00:09:17.339
  • It's the only thingthat will heal you.
  • 00:09:17.439 --> 00:09:19.374
  • "He sent His wordand healed them."
  • 00:09:19.474 --> 00:09:22.477
  • I quoted a Scripture thereand you were clapping,
  • 00:09:22.577 --> 00:09:24.112
  • but it's Psalm 107:20.
  • 00:09:24.212 --> 00:09:25.947
  • "He sent His word and healedthem, and delivered them
  • 00:09:26.047 --> 00:09:29.084
  • from their destructions."It's His word.
  • 00:09:29.184 --> 00:09:32.020
  • So, there's a spiritualblindness that's caused.
  • 00:09:32.120 --> 00:09:34.556
  • Now, let me just say this.
  • 00:09:34.656 --> 00:09:39.594
  • This blindness, it's possibleeven in the natural
  • 00:09:39.694 --> 00:09:45.700
  • to be looking at somethingand not see it.
  • 00:09:45.800 --> 00:09:48.536
  • For instance, we're talkingabout spiritual blindness.
  • 00:09:48.637 --> 00:09:50.739
  • Let me just ask you a question,just every campus,
  • 00:09:50.839 --> 00:09:52.974
  • and why don't you just go aheadand raise your hands,
  • 00:09:53.074 --> 00:09:55.877
  • and if you don't,then we have a Freedom Ministry
  • 00:09:55.977 --> 00:09:59.147
  • for you for lying.
  • 00:09:59.247 --> 00:10:00.548
  • But, have you ever reada chapter in the Bible,
  • 00:10:00.649 --> 00:10:05.253
  • and after reading that chapter,you had no idea
  • 00:10:05.353 --> 00:10:07.722
  • what you just read?
  • 00:10:07.822 --> 00:10:09.157
  • Can I just see?Okay, all right.
  • 00:10:09.257 --> 00:10:11.259
  • That happens becausethis is a spiritual book.
  • 00:10:11.359 --> 00:10:13.595
  • It's a spiritual book.
  • 00:10:13.695 --> 00:10:14.629
  • Or, you had yourmind somewhere else.
  • 00:10:14.729 --> 00:10:16.765
  • Okay?All right.
  • 00:10:16.865 --> 00:10:17.666
  • So, there's spiritualblindness, okay?
  • 00:10:17.766 --> 00:10:20.001
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:10:20.101 --> 00:10:21.336
  • Pride causesspiritual blindness.
  • 00:10:21.436 --> 00:10:29.010
  • We talked about rebellion.
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:30.478
  • We talked aboutcontinued sin.
  • 00:10:30.578 --> 00:10:32.614
  • The only reason youwould continue to sin
  • 00:10:32.714 --> 00:10:35.350
  • is because you'rean arrogant person.
  • 00:10:35.450 --> 00:10:36.885
  • That's the only reason,and I've been there, too.
  • 00:10:36.985 --> 00:10:39.554
  • The only reason we wouldcontinue to sin
  • 00:10:39.654 --> 00:10:41.256
  • is because of pride.That's the only reason.
  • 00:10:41.356 --> 00:10:44.559
  • The only reasonwe'd have a rebellious heart
  • 00:10:44.659 --> 00:10:47.328
  • is because of pride.Pride is at the root.
  • 00:10:47.429 --> 00:10:49.397
  • Okay, so Jesus healsa blind man in John 9.
  • 00:10:49.497 --> 00:10:53.334
  • He's blind from birth.
  • 00:10:53.435 --> 00:10:55.336
  • No one had ever healeda man blind from birth.
  • 00:10:55.437 --> 00:10:57.806
  • You can read it.
  • 00:10:57.906 --> 00:10:58.907
  • It says sincethe beginning of time,
  • 00:10:59.007 --> 00:11:01.976
  • it's never been heard of a manwas healed blind from birth.
  • 00:11:02.077 --> 00:11:05.780
  • He heals this man,blind from birth,
  • 00:11:05.880 --> 00:11:08.917
  • and the Phariseesget mad about it.
  • 00:11:09.017 --> 00:11:10.819
  • Isn't that amazing?That is shocking.
  • 00:11:10.919 --> 00:11:13.788
  • So, this man gets healedand the Pharisees were mad
  • 00:11:13.888 --> 00:11:16.558
  • at him that he got healed.
  • 00:11:16.658 --> 00:11:20.095
  • And so, they said,who did this?
  • 00:11:20.195 --> 00:11:21.896
  • So he says, "I don't know.
  • 00:11:21.996 --> 00:11:23.098
  • Jesus, I think --a guy named Jesus."
  • 00:11:23.198 --> 00:11:25.800
  • So, they tracked Jesus down.
  • 00:11:25.900 --> 00:11:27.469
  • Now, I want you towatch what Jesus says.
  • 00:11:27.569 --> 00:11:31.139
  • In John 9:39, Jesus said,"For judgment
  • 00:11:31.239 --> 00:11:36.277
  • I've come into this world."
  • 00:11:36.377 --> 00:11:37.846
  • Now watch closely, and He'stalkin' about spiritual sight.
  • 00:11:37.946 --> 00:11:41.683
  • "That those who do not seemay see, and that those
  • 00:11:41.783 --> 00:11:47.522
  • who see may be made blind."
  • 00:11:47.622 --> 00:11:51.626
  • And then some of the Phariseeswho were with Him
  • 00:11:51.726 --> 00:11:53.895
  • heard these words and saidto him, "Are we blind also?"
  • 00:11:53.995 --> 00:11:58.199
  • And Jesus said, bingo!Listen to what He said.
  • 00:11:58.299 --> 00:12:02.904
  • He's talking aboutspiritual sight, and remember,
  • 00:12:03.004 --> 00:12:05.073
  • this is a spiritual book.
  • 00:12:05.173 --> 00:12:06.775
  • "If you were blind",listen to what He says,
  • 00:12:06.875 --> 00:12:10.812
  • "you would have no sin.
  • 00:12:10.912 --> 00:12:14.716
  • But now", or the word herecould be translated "since".
  • 00:12:14.816 --> 00:12:18.486
  • "But since you say, "We see",therefore your sin remains."
  • 00:12:18.586 --> 00:12:25.260
  • Okay, let me tell you againhow spiritual this is.
  • 00:12:25.360 --> 00:12:27.829
  • Jesus said I came into thisworld that those
  • 00:12:27.929 --> 00:12:30.565
  • who are spiritually blindcould receive their sight.
  • 00:12:30.665 --> 00:12:34.536
  • Do you remember what happenedwhen Paul got saved?
  • 00:12:34.636 --> 00:12:37.739
  • Ananias prayed for him,and what happened?
  • 00:12:37.839 --> 00:12:40.041
  • Scales fell off his eyes.Think about that!
  • 00:12:40.141 --> 00:12:45.914
  • Think about that!Scales fell off his eyes.
  • 00:12:46.014 --> 00:12:48.449
  • So Jesus said I cameinto this world
  • 00:12:48.550 --> 00:12:51.186
  • that those who cannot seespiritually will be able to see,
  • 00:12:51.286 --> 00:12:56.157
  • and those of you who saythat you can see without Me,
  • 00:12:56.257 --> 00:13:01.729
  • that you don't need Me,you'll just be made blind.
  • 00:13:01.830 --> 00:13:07.235
  • And the Pharisees said,so You're saying we're blind?
  • 00:13:07.335 --> 00:13:11.172
  • And Jesus said, oh,yeah, you're blind.
  • 00:13:11.272 --> 00:13:12.473
  • You're blind as bats,that's what you are.
  • 00:13:12.574 --> 00:13:14.409
  • You're blind.
  • 00:13:14.509 --> 00:13:15.543
  • But here's anotherway He said it.
  • 00:13:15.643 --> 00:13:16.811
  • He said, "If youwould admit to Me
  • 00:13:16.911 --> 00:13:22.250
  • that you couldn't seewithout Me..."
  • 00:13:22.350 --> 00:13:24.719
  • Listen to what He says."You would have no sin."
  • 00:13:24.819 --> 00:13:27.989
  • In other words, I wouldforgive your sin.
  • 00:13:28.089 --> 00:13:31.392
  • I would erase your sin,if you would just admit
  • 00:13:31.492 --> 00:13:34.195
  • to Me that you'reblind without Me.
  • 00:13:34.295 --> 00:13:36.998
  • I'd take care --I'd remove all your sin.
  • 00:13:37.098 --> 00:13:40.335
  • I'm telling you all,this is an amazing verse.
  • 00:13:40.435 --> 00:13:45.073
  • This is a spiritual book.
  • 00:13:45.173 --> 00:13:46.574
  • And then He said,"But since you say
  • 00:13:46.674 --> 00:13:49.177
  • that you can see without Me,your sin remains."
  • 00:13:49.277 --> 00:13:55.750
  • Is that amazing?This is a spiritual book.
  • 00:13:55.850 --> 00:13:58.953
  • Okay, so when I was younger,I traveled with James Robison.
  • 00:13:59.053 --> 00:14:04.626
  • James is seated down herein the front row,
  • 00:14:04.726 --> 00:14:06.895
  • James and Betty,members of our church.
  • 00:14:06.995 --> 00:14:08.463
  • James Robison's oneof our apostolic elders.
  • 00:14:08.563 --> 00:14:11.165
  • Most of you see Jamesand Betty on television,
  • 00:14:11.266 --> 00:14:13.434
  • but you may not know,James Robison used
  • 00:14:13.534 --> 00:14:15.703
  • to do great big city-widecrusades like Billy Graham did,
  • 00:14:15.803 --> 00:14:19.440
  • and break all of the conferencerecords in the cities,
  • 00:14:19.540 --> 00:14:22.343
  • you know,the attendance records.
  • 00:14:22.443 --> 00:14:24.879
  • When he was doing that,I was traveling with him
  • 00:14:24.979 --> 00:14:27.582
  • as a young man, and I would doschool assemblies,
  • 00:14:27.682 --> 00:14:30.018
  • and I went with himto Louisville, Kentucky.
  • 00:14:30.118 --> 00:14:32.086
  • Southern Seminary is there.
  • 00:14:32.186 --> 00:14:34.022
  • And one of the professorshad been listening to James
  • 00:14:34.122 --> 00:14:36.291
  • talk about how we could beblind to the Bible,
  • 00:14:36.391 --> 00:14:40.061
  • and he thought,I've been studying
  • 00:14:40.161 --> 00:14:41.496
  • the Bible my whole life.
  • 00:14:41.596 --> 00:14:42.797
  • As a matter of fact, he hadtaught New Testament theology --
  • 00:14:42.897 --> 00:14:47.902
  • New Testament theologyfor over 20 years.
  • 00:14:48.002 --> 00:14:50.872
  • 13 of those years, he taughtthe Book of Mark -- 13 years.
  • 00:14:50.972 --> 00:14:56.477
  • So, he said to the Lord,"Lord, I'm gonna go hear James,
  • 00:14:56.577 --> 00:15:00.615
  • and he's talking abouthow we can read this book
  • 00:15:00.715 --> 00:15:03.084
  • and we still havespiritual blindness.
  • 00:15:03.184 --> 00:15:04.986
  • So, if I have spiritualblindness, will You show me?
  • 00:15:05.086 --> 00:15:09.924
  • Will You show me a Scripturethat I've never seen?"
  • 00:15:10.024 --> 00:15:15.997
  • So, James gets up that nightand decides to preach,
  • 00:15:16.097 --> 00:15:18.833
  • and one of the verses he usesis this, Mark 6:12-13.
  • 00:15:18.933 --> 00:15:22.503
  • "So they went out and preachedthat people should repent.
  • 00:15:22.603 --> 00:15:25.473
  • And they cast out many demons,and anointed with oil
  • 00:15:25.573 --> 00:15:29.510
  • many who were sick,and healed them."
  • 00:15:29.610 --> 00:15:31.746
  • And this professor cameback to the green room
  • 00:15:31.846 --> 00:15:33.314
  • after the service.I will never forget this.
  • 00:15:33.414 --> 00:15:35.249
  • He said, "James, I've taughtthe Book of Mark for 13 years,
  • 00:15:35.350 --> 00:15:39.654
  • verse by verse, and I have neverseen that verse in my life.
  • 00:15:39.754 --> 00:15:45.693
  • I've never seenthat the disciples
  • 00:15:45.793 --> 00:15:47.061
  • anointed people with oil, andI've taught it verse by verse."
  • 00:15:47.161 --> 00:15:51.399
  • That's spiritual blindness.
  • 00:15:51.499 --> 00:15:53.368
  • All right, so here'sthe last point --
  • 00:15:53.468 --> 00:15:55.336
  • Jesus opens blind eyes.Here's the good news.
  • 00:15:55.436 --> 00:15:59.140
  • Jesus opens blind eyes.
  • 00:15:59.240 --> 00:16:00.274
  • Now, Mark 8, I toldyou I'd get there.
  • 00:16:00.375 --> 00:16:02.944
  • It says, "ThenHe came to Bethsaida,
  • 00:16:03.044 --> 00:16:04.545
  • and they broughta blind man to Him,
  • 00:16:04.645 --> 00:16:06.114
  • and they begged Himto touch him.
  • 00:16:06.214 --> 00:16:07.415
  • So He took the blind manby the hand
  • 00:16:07.515 --> 00:16:09.083
  • and led him out of the town."
  • 00:16:09.183 --> 00:16:10.551
  • Led him out of the townbecause you remember,
  • 00:16:10.651 --> 00:16:12.053
  • Bethsaida was onein the evangelical triangle
  • 00:16:12.153 --> 00:16:14.789
  • and it became oneof the cursed cities.
  • 00:16:14.889 --> 00:16:16.958
  • "And when He had spit on hiseyes and put His hands on him,
  • 00:16:17.058 --> 00:16:20.328
  • He asked him..."He asked him.
  • 00:16:20.428 --> 00:16:23.197
  • He wanted him tosay something.
  • 00:16:23.297 --> 00:16:25.066
  • "He asked himif he saw anything.
  • 00:16:25.166 --> 00:16:27.635
  • And he looked up and he said,"I see men like trees, walking."
  • 00:16:27.735 --> 00:16:31.572
  • I hope y'all justpicked up right there,
  • 00:16:31.672 --> 00:16:35.109
  • spiritual symbolsand spiritual sight.
  • 00:16:35.209 --> 00:16:38.212
  • "I see men like trees, walking."
  • 00:16:38.312 --> 00:16:40.415
  • Then He put His hands on hiseyes again and made him look up.
  • 00:16:40.515 --> 00:16:42.984
  • And he was restored andsaw everyone clearly."
  • 00:16:43.084 --> 00:16:44.886
  • Okay, so one nightI preached a crusade.
  • 00:16:44.986 --> 00:16:47.255
  • I'm in a hotelroom afterwards.
  • 00:16:47.355 --> 00:16:49.157
  • I turned the TV on.There's a TV preacher on.
  • 00:16:49.257 --> 00:16:52.026
  • I thought I'd listen,and he preached on this passage,
  • 00:16:52.126 --> 00:16:54.429
  • and this is what he said.He said, "You see?
  • 00:16:54.529 --> 00:16:57.398
  • Even with Jesus, it doesn'talways work the first time."
  • 00:16:57.498 --> 00:17:03.938
  • I couldn't believe it.
  • 00:17:04.038 --> 00:17:05.373
  • I thought, with God, it doesn'talways work the first time?
  • 00:17:05.473 --> 00:17:11.212
  • And so I thought, well,I know that's not right.
  • 00:17:11.312 --> 00:17:13.548
  • So I remember thinking, Lord,I'm gonna figure this out.
  • 00:17:13.648 --> 00:17:17.418
  • There's something else here.
  • 00:17:17.518 --> 00:17:18.519
  • There's some reasonhe saw men like trees
  • 00:17:18.619 --> 00:17:21.022
  • and You put Your handson him again.
  • 00:17:21.122 --> 00:17:22.623
  • So, I read it,I read other Scriptures,
  • 00:17:22.723 --> 00:17:24.625
  • I read everything I could read.
  • 00:17:24.725 --> 00:17:26.260
  • Three hours later,I had no clue what it meant.
  • 00:17:26.360 --> 00:17:32.767
  • And all of the sudden,it seemed like the Lord
  • 00:17:32.867 --> 00:17:34.535
  • was standing beside me,just standing there.
  • 00:17:34.635 --> 00:17:37.939
  • Not literally, not naturally, itjust seemed like that, you know.
  • 00:17:38.039 --> 00:17:40.842
  • And I felt like He just saidto me, "What are you doin'?"
  • 00:17:40.942 --> 00:17:46.747
  • And I said, "Well, I'mtryin' to figure this out,
  • 00:17:46.848 --> 00:17:48.483
  • with no help fromYou, I might add."
  • 00:17:48.583 --> 00:17:50.618
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:50.718 --> 00:17:54.922
  • And He said to me, "Do youthink I know what that means?"
  • 00:17:55.022 --> 00:17:59.827
  • And I said, "Well, of courseYou know what it means."
  • 00:17:59.927 --> 00:18:01.229
  • He said, "Why don'tyou just ask?"
  • 00:18:01.329 --> 00:18:05.633
  • So I said, "Okay, what..."and before I could say,
  • 00:18:05.733 --> 00:18:08.536
  • what does this mean,when I said, wha...?
  • 00:18:08.636 --> 00:18:10.404
  • When I started the word"what", like that,
  • 00:18:10.505 --> 00:18:11.939
  • He downloaded it on me,just like that. Okay.
  • 00:18:12.039 --> 00:18:16.944
  • Here's what the man said.Jesus puts His hands on him.
  • 00:18:17.044 --> 00:18:20.381
  • Jesus, the Son of God,the creator and sustainer
  • 00:18:20.481 --> 00:18:23.050
  • of the universe,who spoke the worlds
  • 00:18:23.151 --> 00:18:25.119
  • into existence,put His hands on him
  • 00:18:25.219 --> 00:18:28.256

  • 00:18:28.356 --> 00:18:32.326
  • He said, "I see menlike trees, walking."
  • 00:18:32.426 --> 00:18:35.396
  • Think about the symbolsof the Bible.
  • 00:18:35.496 --> 00:18:36.964
  • Can I read youa few Scriptures?
  • 00:18:37.064 --> 00:18:39.567

  • nor stands inthe paths of sinners,
  • 00:18:43.638 --> 00:18:45.006
  • nor sits in the seatof the scornful.

  • His delight is inthe law of the Lord,
  • 00:18:47.441 --> 00:18:48.876
  • and in His lawhe meditates day and night.
  • 00:18:48.976 --> 00:18:50.645
  • He shall be like a treeplanted by the water."
  • 00:18:50.745 --> 00:18:54.749
  • "I saw men like trees."

  • Psalm 52:8, "But I amlike a green olive tree
  • 00:18:56.984 --> 00:19:00.721
  • in the house of the God."
  • 00:19:00.821 --> 00:19:02.590
  • Psalm 92:12, "The righteousshall flourish
  • 00:19:02.690 --> 00:19:04.959
  • like a palm tree."

  • Jeremiah 17:7-8, "Blessedis the man who trusts
  • 00:19:06.427 --> 00:19:08.896
  • in the Lord, and whosehope is in the Lord.
  • 00:19:08.996 --> 00:19:10.565
  • For he shall be like a treeplanted by the water."

  • Isaiah 55:12, "And allthe trees of the field
  • 00:19:13.467 --> 00:19:16.003
  • shall clap their hands."That's talking about people!
  • 00:19:16.103 --> 00:19:18.673
  • You've never seen a bunch of oaktrees clapping their hands.
  • 00:19:18.773 --> 00:19:22.543
  • That's people.
  • 00:19:22.643 --> 00:19:24.312
  • Matthew 7:17,"Even so, Jesus said,
  • 00:19:24.412 --> 00:19:26.914
  • "Every good treebears good fruit,
  • 00:19:27.014 --> 00:19:29.016
  • but a bad tree bears bad fruit."
  • 00:19:29.116 --> 00:19:30.484
  • He's not teachingus to be arborists.
  • 00:19:30.585 --> 00:19:33.921
  • He is not teachingabout trees.
  • 00:19:34.021 --> 00:19:37.825
  • He's teaching about people,and Jesus called them trees.
  • 00:19:37.925 --> 00:19:42.430
  • Are you all following me?I've just got to read this.
  • 00:19:42.530 --> 00:19:45.833
  • I'm gettin' out of time,but I'm gonna read it anyway.
  • 00:19:45.933 --> 00:19:47.168
  • Zachariah 4:11,"Then I answered and said,
  • 00:19:47.268 --> 00:19:48.536
  • "What are these two olive trees,at the right of the lampstand
  • 00:19:48.636 --> 00:19:58.045
  • and at its left?"
  • 00:19:58.145 --> 00:19:59.380
  • Verse 14, "So he said, "Theseare the two anointed ones,"
  • 00:19:59.480 --> 00:20:02.683
  • these are the twowitnesses in Revelation,
  • 00:20:02.783 --> 00:20:05.419
  • "who stand besidethe Lord of the whole earth."
  • 00:20:05.519 --> 00:20:07.622
  • Are you all -- okay,so Zachariah saw trees.
  • 00:20:07.722 --> 00:20:12.293
  • He saw trees.What are these two trees?
  • 00:20:12.393 --> 00:20:15.997
  • The angel said,these are two men.
  • 00:20:16.097 --> 00:20:19.133
  • These are the twoanointed ones.
  • 00:20:19.233 --> 00:20:20.701
  • These are the twowitnesses of the end time.
  • 00:20:20.801 --> 00:20:22.503
  • Are you all following me?
  • 00:20:22.603 --> 00:20:24.238
  • So, trees representpeople in the Bible.
  • 00:20:24.338 --> 00:20:27.475
  • Jesus puts His hands on himand says, "What do you see?"
  • 00:20:27.575 --> 00:20:31.145
  • He said, "I seemen like trees."
  • 00:20:31.245 --> 00:20:32.747
  • Then He put His hands onhim again and He restored
  • 00:20:32.847 --> 00:20:34.248
  • everything [indiscernible].Here's how simple it is!
  • 00:20:34.348 --> 00:20:36.150
  • When He put His hands on himthe first time,
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:38.252
  • He opened his spiritual eyes.
  • 00:20:38.352 --> 00:20:40.121
  • When He put His handson him the second time,
  • 00:20:40.221 --> 00:20:42.089
  • He opened his natural eyes!
  • 00:20:42.189 --> 00:20:44.425
  • [Applause]
  • 00:20:44.525 --> 00:20:48.362
  • Just like that!
  • 00:20:48.462 --> 00:20:50.464
  • And, by the way, you can'tjust go on my opinion.
  • 00:20:50.564 --> 00:20:54.168
  • You might say, boy,Robert's really smart
  • 00:20:54.268 --> 00:20:55.870
  • for figuring that out.
  • 00:20:55.970 --> 00:20:56.804
  • No, the Biblehas to define itself.
  • 00:20:56.904 --> 00:20:58.773
  • I've told youthat hundreds of times.
  • 00:20:58.873 --> 00:20:59.974
  • So, the Lord saidto me, "Back up.
  • 00:21:00.074 --> 00:21:02.843
  • Just back up andwatch what happens." Okay.
  • 00:21:02.943 --> 00:21:04.979
  • So at the beginning ofthe chapter, Jesus feeds 4.000.
  • 00:21:05.079 --> 00:21:07.748
  • One time He feeds 5.000,one time it's 4.000.
  • 00:21:07.848 --> 00:21:10.384
  • And then, right after He feedsthe 4.000, watch Mark 8.
  • 00:21:10.484 --> 00:21:13.788
  • Watch spiritual blindnessand spiritual deafness.
  • 00:21:13.888 --> 00:21:17.158
  • This is right beforewhat we just read.
  • 00:21:17.258 --> 00:21:18.826
  • Mark 8:13, "And He left them,and getting into the boat again,
  • 00:21:18.926 --> 00:21:23.197
  • departed tothe other side." Watch.
  • 00:21:23.297 --> 00:21:24.832
  • "Now the disciples hadforgotten to take bread,
  • 00:21:24.932 --> 00:21:28.536
  • and they did not have more thanone loaf with them in the boat.
  • 00:21:28.636 --> 00:21:32.440
  • Then He charged them",Jesus charged them,
  • 00:21:32.540 --> 00:21:34.475
  • "saying, "Take heed, bewareof the leaven", the yeast,
  • 00:21:34.575 --> 00:21:38.646
  • the bread, "of the Phariseesand the leaven of Herod."
  • 00:21:38.746 --> 00:21:42.049
  • Watch this!
  • 00:21:42.149 --> 00:21:43.317
  • "And they reasoned amongthemselves, saying",
  • 00:21:43.417 --> 00:21:45.319
  • well, He's mad because wedidn't bring any bread.
  • 00:21:45.419 --> 00:21:50.091
  • It's because wehave no bread.
  • 00:21:50.191 --> 00:21:51.759
  • Told you we shouldbring more bread.
  • 00:21:51.859 --> 00:21:55.096
  • Talk about spiritualblindness!
  • 00:21:55.196 --> 00:21:58.332
  • When Jesus said, "Beware ofthe leaven of the Pharisees",
  • 00:21:58.432 --> 00:22:00.401
  • he wasn't talkin'about natural bread, was He?
  • 00:22:00.501 --> 00:22:02.703
  • He was talking aboutteachings, words, right?
  • 00:22:02.803 --> 00:22:06.040
  • Now, watch.I love this.
  • 00:22:06.140 --> 00:22:07.174
  • "But Jesus, being awareof it, said to them..."
  • 00:22:07.274 --> 00:22:09.276
  • Oh, man, I just love this.
  • 00:22:09.377 --> 00:22:11.679
  • "Why do you reason becauseyou have no bread?
  • 00:22:11.779 --> 00:22:16.917
  • Do you not yet perceivenor understand?
  • 00:22:17.017 --> 00:22:21.021
  • Is your heartstill hardened?" Watch.
  • 00:22:21.122 --> 00:22:23.624
  • "Having eyes but youdo not see, and having ears,
  • 00:22:23.724 --> 00:22:29.063
  • but you do not hear?"
  • 00:22:29.163 --> 00:22:30.698
  • Then, listen whatHe says here.
  • 00:22:30.798 --> 00:22:31.999
  • I like this."Then do you not remember?
  • 00:22:32.099 --> 00:22:35.202
  • When I broke the five loavesfor the five thousand,
  • 00:22:35.302 --> 00:22:40.107
  • how many baskets fullof fragments did you take up?"
  • 00:22:40.207 --> 00:22:42.676
  • They said, "Twelve."
  • 00:22:42.777 --> 00:22:44.512
  • "Also, when I broke the sevenfor the four thousand,
  • 00:22:44.612 --> 00:22:47.348
  • how many large baskets fullof fragments did you take up?"
  • 00:22:47.448 --> 00:22:49.984
  • They said, "Seven."
  • 00:22:50.084 --> 00:22:51.185
  • So He said to them,"How is it you still
  • 00:22:51.285 --> 00:22:53.320
  • do not understand?"Here's what He was saying.
  • 00:22:53.421 --> 00:22:55.990
  • Fellas, if I wanted bread,I'd just whip us some up!
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:23:00.261
  • [Applause]
  • 00:23:00.361 --> 00:23:06.100
  • I am not talkingabout bread!
  • 00:23:06.200 --> 00:23:11.038
  • Five loaves,and I fed five thousand!
  • 00:23:11.138 --> 00:23:15.409
  • There's one loaf in this boatand thirteen dudes!
  • 00:23:15.509 --> 00:23:19.647
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:23:19.747 --> 00:23:21.916
  • Bread is not the problem!
  • 00:23:22.016 --> 00:23:25.419
  • I am not talkingabout bread.
  • 00:23:25.519 --> 00:23:27.421
  • I am talking about somethingin the spiritual realm
  • 00:23:27.521 --> 00:23:31.292
  • that you have eyesbut you can't see,
  • 00:23:31.392 --> 00:23:35.930
  • and you have earsbut you can't hear.
  • 00:23:36.030 --> 00:23:38.098
  • And I'm telling you,if you do not read this book
  • 00:23:38.199 --> 00:23:40.935
  • with spiritual eyes, you won'tget one thing out of it,
  • 00:23:41.035 --> 00:23:47.107
  • and here's the problem.
  • 00:23:47.208 --> 00:23:49.176
  • If you don't readwith spiritual eyes,
  • 00:23:49.276 --> 00:23:51.912
  • then you can't understand it.
  • 00:23:52.012 --> 00:23:55.082
  • And if you can't understand it,you will not turn
  • 00:23:55.182 --> 00:23:59.420
  • from what is keeping youfrom getting healed.
  • 00:23:59.520 --> 00:24:01.789
  • ROBERT: Remember, this bookis a spiritual book
  • 00:24:02.623 --> 00:24:06.527
  • written to spiritual beingsby a spiritual being.
  • 00:24:06.627 --> 00:24:11.532
  • The Bible even tells usthat the natural man,
  • 00:24:11.632 --> 00:24:14.668
  • the natural mind,cannot understand this book.
  • 00:24:14.768 --> 00:24:18.539
  • The way we understandthis book is we approach it
  • 00:24:18.639 --> 00:24:21.342
  • as little children.
  • 00:24:21.442 --> 00:24:22.710
  • We don't read this book like,well, I've read it before,
  • 00:24:22.810 --> 00:24:25.446
  • or I'm a Sunday School teacher,or I'm a pastor.
  • 00:24:25.546 --> 00:24:28.716
  • We come to God saying,"Lord, I'm just a little child,
  • 00:24:28.816 --> 00:24:32.553
  • and I cannotunderstand this book
  • 00:24:32.653 --> 00:24:34.889
