  • - Hope things aregoing well with you.
  • 00:00:01.419 --> 00:00:02.620
  • Hi, I'm Ron Carpenter,
  • 00:00:02.653 --> 00:00:04.121
  • and I get to be your guidethrough the Word of God
  • 00:00:04.155 --> 00:00:06.891
  • for the next few minutes.
  • 00:00:06.924 --> 00:00:08.392
  • You see a logo behind me,it says "God's People."
  • 00:00:08.426 --> 00:00:10.561
  • What is "God's People"?
  • 00:00:10.594 --> 00:00:11.762
  • Well, that's whatI'm trying to define.
  • 00:00:11.796 --> 00:00:13.798
  • And sometimes we have alot of manmade categories
  • 00:00:13.831 --> 00:00:16.534
  • and a lot of manmade labels
  • 00:00:16.567 --> 00:00:18.069
  • that just really don't add upto what God said we really are
  • 00:00:18.102 --> 00:00:21.972
  • and who we reallycan be as a people.
  • 00:00:22.006 --> 00:00:24.809
  • I want you to go onthis journey with me.
  • 00:00:24.842 --> 00:00:26.077
  • Let's discover whatGod really says
  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:28.212
  • about a people bornout of one blood.
  • 00:00:28.245 --> 00:00:30.247
  • Stay tuned.
  • 00:00:30.281 --> 00:00:31.549
  • (uplifting music)
  • 00:00:31.582 --> 00:00:34.418
  • RCTV 300Message: 7-26-20Airs: 10-11-20
  • 00:00:35.019 --> 00:00:47.098
  • "And you will hear ofwars and rumors of wars.
  • 00:00:47.131 --> 00:00:49.767
  • See that you are not troubled.
  • 00:00:51.969 --> 00:00:53.904
  • These things must come topass, but the end is not yet."
  • 00:00:55.339 --> 00:00:59.110
  • Okay?
  • 00:01:00.344 --> 00:01:01.278
  • "Don't be troubled." Why?
  • 00:01:01.312 --> 00:01:03.247
  • Because you'repeople of the Word,
  • 00:01:03.280 --> 00:01:04.982
  • you're people of covenant,and people who know the Word
  • 00:01:05.015 --> 00:01:07.751
  • and people who knowtheir covenant donot need to be shaken
  • 00:01:07.785 --> 00:01:10.254
  • by what's going on around them.
  • 00:01:10.287 --> 00:01:12.256
  • So even though I'mtroubled at what I see,
  • 00:01:12.289 --> 00:01:15.159
  • there is a peace that does notleave me because Jesus said,
  • 00:01:15.192 --> 00:01:18.562
  • don't be troubled, thisstuff has got to happen.
  • 00:01:18.596 --> 00:01:21.665
  • Sometime trouble has to happento bring God's intended in.
  • 00:01:23.467 --> 00:01:27.171
  • That's what He'ssaying right here.
  • 00:01:28.739 --> 00:01:30.674
  • Next verse.
  • 00:01:30.708 --> 00:01:31.542
  • "For nation willrise against nation."
  • 00:01:32.843 --> 00:01:35.045
  • Ethnicity will riseagainst ethnicity.
  • 00:01:35.079 --> 00:01:38.482
  • The Greek word is ethnos
  • 00:01:38.516 --> 00:01:39.717
  • from which we get theword ethnicity or race.
  • 00:01:39.750 --> 00:01:42.419
  • Race will rise against race,kingdom against kingdom.
  • 00:01:42.453 --> 00:01:45.756
  • The kingdom wordthere is basileia,
  • 00:01:45.789 --> 00:01:47.525
  • all which tends to have to do
  • 00:01:47.558 --> 00:01:49.293
  • with spiritual rulersand principalities.
  • 00:01:49.326 --> 00:01:51.962
  • He said, so there's goingto be spiritual conflict
  • 00:01:51.996 --> 00:01:54.832
  • in the heaven,
  • 00:01:54.865 --> 00:01:56.300
  • and there's going to beracial conflict on the earth.
  • 00:01:56.333 --> 00:01:58.369
  • "And there will befamines, pestilences,
  • 00:01:59.603 --> 00:02:01.705
  • earthquakes in various places."
  • 00:02:01.739 --> 00:02:03.440
  • We've had these formany, many years.
  • 00:02:03.474 --> 00:02:05.609
  • "These are thebeginning of sorrows."
  • 00:02:05.643 --> 00:02:07.311
  • Stay with me. You say, oh, Ihate that end time preaching.
  • 00:02:07.344 --> 00:02:09.380
  • Stay with me.
  • 00:02:09.413 --> 00:02:10.648
  • I'm not preachingon the end times,
  • 00:02:10.681 --> 00:02:11.782
  • I'm going somewhere else.
  • 00:02:11.815 --> 00:02:13.284
  • "They will deliver you upto tribulation and kill you,
  • 00:02:13.317 --> 00:02:16.020
  • and you will be hated by allnations for My name's sake."
  • 00:02:16.053 --> 00:02:19.223
  • That's very interesting.
  • 00:02:19.256 --> 00:02:20.457
  • You're going to be hated too.
  • 00:02:21.559 --> 00:02:23.027
  • So listen, race isrising up against race.
  • 00:02:24.128 --> 00:02:28.098
  • Oh, by the way, they'regoing to hate you too.
  • 00:02:28.132 --> 00:02:30.467
  • So Jesus differentiatesthem and said,
  • 00:02:30.501 --> 00:02:33.170
  • they're going to hate you,
  • 00:02:33.204 --> 00:02:34.371
  • and they're going tohate you because of me.
  • 00:02:34.405 --> 00:02:36.140
  • I'm coming back to that.
  • 00:02:37.608 --> 00:02:39.443
  • Next verse.
  • 00:02:39.476 --> 00:02:40.311
  • "And then many will be offended,
  • 00:02:41.312 --> 00:02:44.148
  • will betray one anotherand hate one another.
  • 00:02:44.181 --> 00:02:46.617
  • Then false prophets willrise up and deceive many."
  • 00:02:48.118 --> 00:02:50.955
  • Verse 12.
  • 00:02:50.988 --> 00:02:52.423
  • "And becauselawlessness will abound,
  • 00:02:52.456 --> 00:02:54.491
  • the love of manywill grow cold."
  • 00:02:54.525 --> 00:02:56.994
  • Because lawlessness abounds,
  • 00:02:57.027 --> 00:02:58.829
  • the love of many will grow cold.
  • 00:02:58.862 --> 00:03:01.732
  • Next verse.
  • 00:03:01.765 --> 00:03:03.033
  • "But he who endures tothe end shall be saved."
  • 00:03:03.067 --> 00:03:05.569
  • Verse 14, and I'm going to stop.
  • 00:03:05.603 --> 00:03:06.971
  • "And this Gospel of theKingdom will be preached
  • 00:03:07.004 --> 00:03:10.174
  • in all the world as awitness to all nations,
  • 00:03:10.207 --> 00:03:13.077
  • then the end will come."
  • 00:03:13.110 --> 00:03:15.312
  • The trouble that we'reseeing is producing a result
  • 00:03:16.680 --> 00:03:20.618
  • that produces the end.
  • 00:03:20.651 --> 00:03:22.286
  • This is not the end.
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:25.022
  • The trouble that we see
  • 00:03:26.290 --> 00:03:28.325
  • produces a resultthat produces the end.
  • 00:03:28.359 --> 00:03:32.396
  • And I'm going to breakthat down for you
  • 00:03:32.429 --> 00:03:34.064
  • in the next few minutesthat I have right here.
  • 00:03:34.098 --> 00:03:36.000
  • Are you ready toroll with me, okay?
  • 00:03:36.033 --> 00:03:37.801
  • 1 Timothy 4:1-2.
  • 00:03:37.835 --> 00:03:39.336
  • 1 Timothy 4:1-2. Throwthat on the screen.
  • 00:03:39.370 --> 00:03:41.972
  • Now kingdom against kingdomis different from race.
  • 00:03:42.006 --> 00:03:47.011
  • "Now the Spirit expressivelysays that in the latter days
  • 00:03:52.449 --> 00:03:56.954
  • some will depart from the faith
  • 00:04:00.858 --> 00:04:02.760
  • giving heed to deceivingspirits and doctrines of demons,
  • 00:04:02.793 --> 00:04:07.331
  • speaking lies in hypocrisy
  • 00:04:07.364 --> 00:04:09.099
  • and having their own conscienceseared with a hot iron."
  • 00:04:09.133 --> 00:04:11.735
  • These are not worldly people.
  • 00:04:11.769 --> 00:04:13.537
  • These are people thatwere once God's people
  • 00:04:13.570 --> 00:04:16.573
  • who depart from it.
  • 00:04:16.607 --> 00:04:17.841
  • They depart from itbecause of deception.
  • 00:04:19.009 --> 00:04:21.712
  • Okay?
  • 00:04:21.745 --> 00:04:22.780
  • What do they adhere to?
  • 00:04:22.813 --> 00:04:24.682
  • Something they think is thedoctrine of God, but deception,
  • 00:04:24.715 --> 00:04:28.719
  • the nature of deception is
  • 00:04:28.752 --> 00:04:30.421
  • you don't know thatyou're being deceived.
  • 00:04:30.454 --> 00:04:33.190
  • It's one thing to believe alie and know you believe a lie.
  • 00:04:33.223 --> 00:04:37.361
  • It's another thingto believe a lie
  • 00:04:37.394 --> 00:04:39.196
  • and you think it's the truth.
  • 00:04:39.229 --> 00:04:40.698
  • So the Bible saysthat in the last days,
  • 00:04:41.832 --> 00:04:44.335
  • the Spirit of God is sayingthat people are going to depart,
  • 00:04:44.368 --> 00:04:48.405
  • stay with me,
  • 00:04:48.439 --> 00:04:49.673
  • what is biblically soundand accurate and truth,
  • 00:04:49.707 --> 00:04:53.277
  • but they're going to getcaught up in the times
  • 00:04:53.310 --> 00:04:55.946
  • and they're going to believethings that God didn't say,
  • 00:04:55.979 --> 00:04:59.083
  • but they're going toassume that it's godly.
  • 00:04:59.116 --> 00:05:01.852
  • That's what deception is.
  • 00:05:01.885 --> 00:05:03.687
  • Now, I believe that chaosand confusion in the earth
  • 00:05:03.721 --> 00:05:08.726
  • is a direct result of things
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:12.229
  • that are going onin the heavens.
  • 00:05:12.262 --> 00:05:13.931
  • If some of you have not beentold all lot of this stuff,
  • 00:05:15.399 --> 00:05:16.967
  • stay with me.
  • 00:05:17.000 --> 00:05:18.469
  • I believe that the Spirit ofGod will give you insight,
  • 00:05:18.502 --> 00:05:19.703
  • even though you may bea very young Christian.
  • 00:05:19.737 --> 00:05:21.772
  • The Bible says that the spiritworld is the parent world.
  • 00:05:23.173 --> 00:05:27.378
  • We tend to live by everythingwe can see if we can see.
  • 00:05:27.411 --> 00:05:29.046
  • If we can see it, it's real,
  • 00:05:29.079 --> 00:05:30.514
  • if we can't seeit, it's not real.
  • 00:05:30.547 --> 00:05:32.316
  • The fact is the Biblesays that there is a world
  • 00:05:32.349 --> 00:05:34.918
  • that is more real that youcan't see than the one you can.
  • 00:05:34.952 --> 00:05:38.822
  • The Bible says thateverything that is made
  • 00:05:38.856 --> 00:05:41.024
  • was made out of thingsthat you can't see.
  • 00:05:41.058 --> 00:05:43.160
  • The Bible says thethings you can't see
  • 00:05:44.328 --> 00:05:45.896
  • are never subject to change.
  • 00:05:45.929 --> 00:05:47.431
  • The things you can see arealways subject to change.
  • 00:05:47.464 --> 00:05:49.900
  • So that's good news, if there'ssomething that you like,
  • 00:05:49.933 --> 00:05:52.736
  • if there's something thatyou see that you don't like,
  • 00:05:54.171 --> 00:05:55.806
  • it is subject to change.
  • 00:05:55.839 --> 00:05:57.207
  • I tell my kids all the time,
  • 00:05:57.241 --> 00:05:58.709
  • when they bring me a problem,I say, "It's not terminal."
  • 00:05:58.742 --> 00:06:01.311
  • I say, "This thing can change."
  • 00:06:01.345 --> 00:06:03.180
  • Let's take the Word ofGod that you can't see,
  • 00:06:03.213 --> 00:06:05.649
  • let's take the Word ofGod, which is Spirit,
  • 00:06:05.682 --> 00:06:07.785
  • and let's turn it on thisthing in the natural,
  • 00:06:07.818 --> 00:06:10.087
  • which we don't like,
  • 00:06:10.120 --> 00:06:11.321
  • because the Word of Godwill never pass away,
  • 00:06:11.355 --> 00:06:13.390
  • it is unchanging, but thissituation is subject to change
  • 00:06:13.424 --> 00:06:16.827
  • if we turn the Wordof God on it, Amen.
  • 00:06:16.860 --> 00:06:19.062
  • So we've got to understandeverything that we can see
  • 00:06:19.096 --> 00:06:22.065
  • is temporary andsubject to change.
  • 00:06:22.099 --> 00:06:24.468
  • If things in thenatural are shifting,
  • 00:06:24.501 --> 00:06:27.438
  • they're being confused andthey're being rearranged,
  • 00:06:27.471 --> 00:06:30.207
  • that tells me that thereis a shaking going on
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:32.810
  • in the heavens.
  • 00:06:32.843 --> 00:06:34.278
  • I want to submit to youthat everything that we see,
  • 00:06:34.311 --> 00:06:36.713
  • although it may be painful, itis not necessarily bad news,
  • 00:06:36.747 --> 00:06:40.651
  • because sometimes thereare principalities.
  • 00:06:40.684 --> 00:06:43.020
  • The Bible says we're notfighting flesh and blood.
  • 00:06:43.053 --> 00:06:45.389
  • So if we see the spiritof division in the races
  • 00:06:45.422 --> 00:06:49.059
  • and we see the spirit ofdivision in the world,
  • 00:06:49.092 --> 00:06:51.695
  • and we see some familiesdivided against families
  • 00:06:51.728 --> 00:06:54.264
  • and color divided against color,
  • 00:06:54.298 --> 00:06:56.166
  • and one side of the town
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:57.334
  • divided againstanother side of town,
  • 00:06:57.367 --> 00:06:58.936
  • and rich divided against poor,
  • 00:06:58.969 --> 00:07:00.671
  • and we see Republicansdivided against Democrats,
  • 00:07:00.704 --> 00:07:02.906
  • and I go on and on and on.
  • 00:07:02.940 --> 00:07:04.408
  • When you see all this, thisis the spirit of division.
  • 00:07:04.441 --> 00:07:07.778
  • What do I mean by that?
  • 00:07:07.811 --> 00:07:09.213
  • Well, we haveplaces in the spirit
  • 00:07:09.246 --> 00:07:11.949
  • and these are calledprincipalities.
  • 00:07:11.982 --> 00:07:14.017
  • These are demonic forcesthat rule in the spirit.
  • 00:07:14.051 --> 00:07:17.387
  • These demonic forceshave principles.
  • 00:07:17.421 --> 00:07:20.924
  • A principality rules and governs
  • 00:07:22.559 --> 00:07:26.230
  • and gets his powerby principles.
  • 00:07:26.263 --> 00:07:29.099
  • So what does he do?
  • 00:07:29.132 --> 00:07:30.601
  • The Bible says that we arewrestling presumptions,
  • 00:07:30.634 --> 00:07:33.303
  • mindsets, knowledge,imaginations.
  • 00:07:33.337 --> 00:07:36.540
  • All those things happenin the realm of the mind.
  • 00:07:36.573 --> 00:07:39.409
  • So your fight rightnow is in your head.
  • 00:07:39.443 --> 00:07:42.679
  • Your fight is notwith your brother.
  • 00:07:42.713 --> 00:07:44.715
  • Your fight is in your head.
  • 00:07:44.748 --> 00:07:46.517
  • Your fight is aspiritual battle.
  • 00:07:46.550 --> 00:07:48.852
  • There is something trying toget, as I thought process,
  • 00:07:48.886 --> 00:07:51.755
  • a principle, in themind of your brother,
  • 00:07:51.788 --> 00:07:54.224
  • and an opposingprinciple in your mind
  • 00:07:54.258 --> 00:07:56.693
  • that causes the spiritof division to come.
  • 00:07:56.727 --> 00:07:59.263
  • Because principalitiesgovern through principles.
  • 00:07:59.296 --> 00:08:03.133
  • These are doctrines ofdemons that we are believing
  • 00:08:03.166 --> 00:08:06.503
  • because it's amazing to me wheneverything is going smooth,
  • 00:08:06.537 --> 00:08:10.173
  • we're worshiping together,and we're the kingdom of God,
  • 00:08:10.207 --> 00:08:13.544
  • but let something comethat begins to challenge
  • 00:08:13.577 --> 00:08:16.647
  • and stress our unity,
  • 00:08:16.680 --> 00:08:18.448
  • and we run back to ourearthly categorizations,
  • 00:08:18.482 --> 00:08:22.019
  • and we start going at each other
  • 00:08:22.052 --> 00:08:24.221
  • with principles that comefrom doctrines of demons,
  • 00:08:24.254 --> 00:08:27.257
  • because I hearpreachers saying things,
  • 00:08:27.291 --> 00:08:29.359
  • I hear people callingeach other out,
  • 00:08:29.393 --> 00:08:31.495
  • I see friends being lost,
  • 00:08:31.528 --> 00:08:33.130
  • I see peopleunfollowing one another,
  • 00:08:33.163 --> 00:08:35.265
  • I see friends that won'tassociate with one another, why?
  • 00:08:35.299 --> 00:08:38.168
  • Not because of thingswritten in the world,
  • 00:08:38.201 --> 00:08:40.671
  • but because you aremad believing something
  • 00:08:40.704 --> 00:08:43.440
  • that a demonwhispered in your ear,
  • 00:08:43.473 --> 00:08:45.242
  • and you're now takingit out on your brother.
  • 00:08:45.275 --> 00:08:47.711
  • Oh God, I'm preaching.
  • 00:08:47.744 --> 00:08:49.580
  • I'm preaching.
  • 00:08:49.613 --> 00:08:50.514
  • I'm just throwing it out there
  • 00:08:50.547 --> 00:08:51.748
  • and let the chipsfall where they may.
  • 00:08:51.782 --> 00:08:53.116
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:08:53.150 --> 00:08:53.984
  • Mm, woo.
  • 00:08:55.185 --> 00:08:56.520
  • So they governthrough principles.
  • 00:08:56.553 --> 00:09:01.091
  • When those principlesare accepted andembraced in our mind,
  • 00:09:02.659 --> 00:09:06.396
  • they are called strongholds.
  • 00:09:06.430 --> 00:09:08.899
  • A stronghold is nota demon out there,
  • 00:09:08.932 --> 00:09:11.401
  • a stronghold is in the head.
  • 00:09:11.435 --> 00:09:13.070
  • A stronghold is when you havebelieved a lie to be true.
  • 00:09:13.103 --> 00:09:16.073
  • Case and point, nobody loves me.
  • 00:09:16.106 --> 00:09:18.275
  • There are literallypeople that walk around
  • 00:09:20.377 --> 00:09:22.512
  • out of the filter, that there'snobody that cares for them.
  • 00:09:23.914 --> 00:09:28.619
  • John 3:16, "For God so loved..."
  • 00:09:32.556 --> 00:09:35.092
  • But before they canunderstand the love of God,
  • 00:09:36.460 --> 00:09:38.528
  • I got to break through thestronghold that they believe
  • 00:09:38.562 --> 00:09:41.932
  • because of whatthey've been through,
  • 00:09:41.965 --> 00:09:43.467
  • and because daddy left, andbecause mama was never around,
  • 00:09:43.500 --> 00:09:46.236
  • and because these threepeople went out on them,
  • 00:09:46.269 --> 00:09:48.038
  • because they wentthrough a divorce.
  • 00:09:48.071 --> 00:09:49.640
  • So now they have cometo the conclusion
  • 00:09:49.673 --> 00:09:52.042
  • of what the demon put intheir head, nobody loves me.
  • 00:09:52.075 --> 00:09:54.945
  • That's a lie.That's a stronghold.
  • 00:09:54.978 --> 00:09:57.147
  • That is the thing thatis used to blind people
  • 00:09:58.348 --> 00:10:01.685
  • from the Gospel, the GoodNews of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:10:01.718 --> 00:10:04.888
  • A stronghold is whenyou believe a lie to be,
  • 00:10:06.023 --> 00:10:08.058
  • well, the miracle alwayshappens to somebody else.
  • 00:10:08.091 --> 00:10:10.560
  • Well, I don't believeGod can heal me.
  • 00:10:10.594 --> 00:10:13.630
  • I don't believe I can be healed.
  • 00:10:13.664 --> 00:10:15.165
  • I don't believe...
  • 00:10:15.198 --> 00:10:16.199
  • A stronghold is when you haveaccepted a lie to be true.
  • 00:10:18.168 --> 00:10:21.905
  • It is a principle anda doctrine of a demon,
  • 00:10:23.106 --> 00:10:26.376
  • and they are rulingyou from the heavens,
  • 00:10:26.410 --> 00:10:28.812
  • and they're calledprincipalities.
  • 00:10:28.845 --> 00:10:30.681
  • They govern through mindsets.
  • 00:10:30.714 --> 00:10:32.849
  • False concepts andmental constructs
  • 00:10:32.883 --> 00:10:35.552
  • are where they get their power,
  • 00:10:35.585 --> 00:10:37.287
  • because "as a manthinketh, so is he."
  • 00:10:37.320 --> 00:10:39.756
  • Somebody say, how muchpower does the devil have?
  • 00:10:41.525 --> 00:10:44.695
  • The devil has the power tosuggest something to you.
  • 00:10:44.728 --> 00:10:47.364
  • Satan came into the gardenand said to Adam and Eve,
  • 00:10:49.666 --> 00:10:51.935
  • "Hath God not said?"
  • 00:10:51.968 --> 00:10:53.937
  • He suggested.
  • 00:10:53.970 --> 00:10:55.038
  • "Hath God not said, if youeat, you be just like Him?"
  • 00:10:56.773 --> 00:10:58.842
  • Well, that don'tsound that bad to me.
  • 00:10:58.875 --> 00:11:00.677
  • He just suggest.
  • 00:11:00.711 --> 00:11:02.179
  • So the enemy works throughthe power of suggestion
  • 00:11:02.212 --> 00:11:04.047
  • and waits for you to grab it.
  • 00:11:04.081 --> 00:11:05.482
  • And then if youagree with the devil,
  • 00:11:05.515 --> 00:11:08.018
  • then "as a manthinketh, so is he."
  • 00:11:08.051 --> 00:11:10.954
  • What you agreed with become thereality that you experience.
  • 00:11:10.987 --> 00:11:15.258
  • He's fighting you in your mind.
  • 00:11:16.393 --> 00:11:18.628
  • So whatever my nature isdetermines my desires.
  • 00:11:20.397 --> 00:11:24.768
  • Whatever I desire,determines my action.
  • 00:11:24.801 --> 00:11:28.438

  • - I have seen, duringthis racial tension,
  • 00:12:21.057 --> 00:12:23.460
  • I've seen posts that hadnothing to do with God
  • 00:12:23.493 --> 00:12:26.429
  • and had no Scriptural basis
  • 00:12:26.463 --> 00:12:28.165
  • by people I have reveredas longtime scholars.
  • 00:12:28.198 --> 00:12:31.234
  • But even for a momentof high emotion,
  • 00:12:31.268 --> 00:12:35.005
  • we embraced thedoctrines of demon
  • 00:12:35.038 --> 00:12:36.773
  • and let the spirit ofdivision run rampant.
  • 00:12:36.807 --> 00:12:38.909
  • And the enemy is sitting upthere, drinking a Coke-Cola,
  • 00:12:38.942 --> 00:12:41.178
  • saying, look at 'em,I got them fighting,
  • 00:12:41.211 --> 00:12:43.246
  • I got the people ofGod killing each other.
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:45.148
  • Let me tell you something.
  • 00:12:45.182 --> 00:12:46.583
  • I have never seen a demonfight another demon.
  • 00:12:46.616 --> 00:12:49.085
  • I've never seen a devilfight another devil.
  • 00:12:49.119 --> 00:12:51.288
  • I've never seen a witchfight another witch.
  • 00:12:51.321 --> 00:12:53.356
  • I've never seen a warlockfight another warlock.
  • 00:12:53.390 --> 00:12:55.859
  • You got to get that into church.
  • 00:12:55.892 --> 00:12:57.394
  • I've only seen church peoplefight other church people.
  • 00:12:57.427 --> 00:12:59.996
  • And you've got to understandwhen you want to lash out
  • 00:13:01.431 --> 00:13:04.100
  • at your brother,
  • 00:13:04.134 --> 00:13:05.869
  • you are not there representingyour earthly category.
  • 00:13:05.902 --> 00:13:10.907
  • You are an ambassador of Christ.
  • 00:13:11.775 --> 00:13:13.777
  • You ascribe to anotherethnicity, a higher order,
  • 00:13:15.178 --> 00:13:18.315
  • you ascribed to another country,the citizenship in heaven,
  • 00:13:18.348 --> 00:13:21.585
  • and you are anambassador from heaven
  • 00:13:21.618 --> 00:13:23.486
  • into the world of Christ.
  • 00:13:23.520 --> 00:13:25.355
  • Christ is the anointing.
  • 00:13:25.388 --> 00:13:26.756
  • So you have to stepinto every fight
  • 00:13:26.790 --> 00:13:29.893
  • as an ambassadorof the anointing,
  • 00:13:29.926 --> 00:13:31.595
  • not an ambassador of white,not an ambassador of black,
  • 00:13:31.628 --> 00:13:34.397
  • and the list goes on.
  • 00:13:34.431 --> 00:13:35.699
  • An ambassador of the anointing.
  • 00:13:35.732 --> 00:13:37.634
  • I am here to say whatthe Spirit of God says,
  • 00:13:38.802 --> 00:13:41.071
  • not to give you mytwo cents worth.
  • 00:13:41.104 --> 00:13:42.939
  • "And where the Spirit of theLord is, there's liberty."
  • 00:13:44.374 --> 00:13:46.910
  • Woo, my God.
  • 00:13:47.844 --> 00:13:49.946
  • Thank you, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:13:49.980 --> 00:13:51.414
  • Some of this ain't in my notes,I'm getting it as I preach.
  • 00:13:51.448 --> 00:13:53.316
  • Let me go on. I got alittle bit more to go.
  • 00:13:53.350 --> 00:13:55.485
  • I'm going to go writedown these verses, okay?
  • 00:13:55.518 --> 00:13:57.988
  • He says, "The powers ofthe heavens," excuse me.
  • 00:13:58.021 --> 00:14:01.258
  • Go back up to verseseven, if you would, guys,
  • 00:14:01.291 --> 00:14:03.059
  • and just stay with me,just keep it on the screen.
  • 00:14:03.093 --> 00:14:04.594
  • I'm going to go fromverse to verse to verse.
  • 00:14:04.628 --> 00:14:07.030
  • If I went back to Luke 21,
  • 00:14:07.063 --> 00:14:11.134
  • Luke 21 talks about,
  • 00:14:11.167 --> 00:14:13.737
  • this is the sameparallel scripture,but he adds more to it.
  • 00:14:13.770 --> 00:14:16.539
  • "He says the powers of theheavens will be shaken."
  • 00:14:16.573 --> 00:14:19.175
  • When I see confusionin the earth,
  • 00:14:20.277 --> 00:14:21.878
  • I am taught that the earth
  • 00:14:21.912 --> 00:14:24.414
  • represents what's goingon in the heavens.
  • 00:14:24.447 --> 00:14:26.683
  • That's why when itcomes to warfare,
  • 00:14:26.716 --> 00:14:29.219
  • you gotta take the air beforeyou even take the ground.
  • 00:14:29.252 --> 00:14:31.922
  • So sometime before we tryto go out and minister
  • 00:14:31.955 --> 00:14:34.457
  • to a nation, we need topray over the nation.
  • 00:14:34.491 --> 00:14:36.726
  • We need to shake up theheavens with our prayer
  • 00:14:37.928 --> 00:14:41.164
  • and with our praise and worship.
  • 00:14:41.197 --> 00:14:42.799
  • So God says, when yousee things in the earth,
  • 00:14:43.967 --> 00:14:47.837
  • it means what has beenin power for years,
  • 00:14:47.871 --> 00:14:51.441
  • God is rearranging them.
  • 00:14:51.474 --> 00:14:53.543
  • Why?
  • 00:14:53.576 --> 00:14:54.844
  • Because the Biblesays in Isaiah 9,
  • 00:14:54.878 --> 00:14:57.881
  • that Jesus, "Unto us a childis born, unto us Son is given,
  • 00:14:57.914 --> 00:15:01.251
  • and the government shallbe upon His shoulders,
  • 00:15:01.284 --> 00:15:03.753
  • and of the increase ofHis government and peace,
  • 00:15:03.787 --> 00:15:06.156
  • there shall be no end."
  • 00:15:06.189 --> 00:15:07.590
  • So you got to understand,
  • 00:15:07.624 --> 00:15:09.192
  • sometimes the confusionthat we see here
  • 00:15:09.225 --> 00:15:11.494
  • does not mean God is losing.
  • 00:15:11.528 --> 00:15:13.330
  • It means God has walked intoa region or a territory,
  • 00:15:13.363 --> 00:15:16.666
  • and the things that havebeen ruling for years
  • 00:15:16.700 --> 00:15:18.635
  • are being torn down.
  • 00:15:18.668 --> 00:15:20.170
  • Sometimes what you see in thenatural as a desperate effort
  • 00:15:20.203 --> 00:15:23.239
  • of demons to holdon to a territory
  • 00:15:23.273 --> 00:15:25.375
  • that God is advancingand taken away from him.
  • 00:15:25.408 --> 00:15:27.544
  • And I want to submit to youthat the unshakable kingdom
  • 00:15:27.577 --> 00:15:31.948
  • that Hebrews talks about
  • 00:15:31.982 --> 00:15:33.350
  • and the government thatIsaiah talks about,
  • 00:15:33.383 --> 00:15:35.452
  • resting on Jesus as beingestablished in areas
  • 00:15:35.485 --> 00:15:38.655
  • where things that havebeen ruling for years
  • 00:15:38.688 --> 00:15:40.957
  • have been in place.
  • 00:15:40.991 --> 00:15:42.392
  • Maybe just maybe the heavensare being rearranged,
  • 00:15:42.425 --> 00:15:45.595
  • and we're about to see theearth being rearranged.
  • 00:15:45.628 --> 00:15:48.164
  • I do not believe these arenecessarily our worst days.
  • 00:15:48.198 --> 00:15:51.334
  • I believe they can be our best.
  • 00:15:51.368 --> 00:15:53.169
  • We just haven't seen what heaven
  • 00:15:53.203 --> 00:15:54.671
  • has brought into the earth yet.
  • 00:15:54.704 --> 00:15:56.106
  • Stay with me. Nextverse, please.
  • 00:15:56.139 --> 00:15:58.274
  • And...
  • 00:15:58.308 --> 00:15:59.342
  • Go back to Matthew 24, if youwould please, verse seven.
  • 00:16:00.744 --> 00:16:02.645
  • Matthew 24:7.
  • 00:16:02.679 --> 00:16:04.714
  • "For nation against nation,kingdom against kingdom,"
  • 00:16:04.748 --> 00:16:06.916
  • go on to verse eight.
  • 00:16:06.950 --> 00:16:08.918
  • "These are the beginningof sorrows," verse nine.
  • 00:16:08.952 --> 00:16:11.388
  • "And they will deliver you upto tribulation and kill you,
  • 00:16:12.822 --> 00:16:14.991
  • and you'll be hated by allnations for My name's sake."
  • 00:16:15.025 --> 00:16:17.727
  • this is very interesting.
  • 00:16:17.761 --> 00:16:19.029
  • Race and ethnicitywill be rising up
  • 00:16:20.697 --> 00:16:24.434
  • against other racesand ethnicities,
  • 00:16:24.467 --> 00:16:26.703
  • He said, oh, and they'regonna hate your people.
  • 00:16:26.736 --> 00:16:30.440
  • Why did Jesus take the12 and single them out?
  • 00:16:33.443 --> 00:16:38.448
  • And they're goingto hate you too.
  • 00:16:39.616 --> 00:16:40.884
  • Because you are a new race.
  • 00:16:40.917 --> 00:16:42.886
  • They're going to hate your kind.
  • 00:16:46.089 --> 00:16:47.524
  • "They're going tohate you for My sake."
  • 00:16:49.159 --> 00:16:52.062
  • They're going tohate you because youascribed to My country
  • 00:16:53.596 --> 00:16:58.201
  • and you live accordingto My government,
  • 00:16:59.335 --> 00:17:00.870
  • and that you refuseto get caught up
  • 00:17:02.005 --> 00:17:03.773
  • in this lower order of things.
  • 00:17:03.807 --> 00:17:05.875
  • You are a chosen generation.
  • 00:17:07.677 --> 00:17:09.379
  • This is two weeks away,
  • 00:17:09.412 --> 00:17:10.914
  • but I'm going to go ahead andput the cart before the horse.
  • 00:17:10.947 --> 00:17:12.515
  • "You are a chosen generation,a royal priesthood,
  • 00:17:12.549 --> 00:17:15.718
  • a holy nation."
  • 00:17:15.752 --> 00:17:17.053
  • A holy ethnos, a peculiar people
  • 00:17:19.622 --> 00:17:23.426
  • that you might showforth the praises of Him
  • 00:17:23.460 --> 00:17:26.362
  • who brought you out ofdarkness into light.
  • 00:17:26.396 --> 00:17:30.333
  • You are a peoplethat God has made
  • 00:17:30.366 --> 00:17:32.969
  • a whole other ethnic group,
  • 00:17:33.002 --> 00:17:35.538
  • and we walk underthe banner of Jesus,
  • 00:17:35.572 --> 00:17:38.007
  • and the Kingdom ofGod is our government.
  • 00:17:38.041 --> 00:17:40.510
  • Let me say that again.
  • 00:17:40.543 --> 00:17:42.045
  • Jesus, out of blood, madea whole new race of people
  • 00:17:42.078 --> 00:17:45.849
  • born of God.
  • 00:17:45.882 --> 00:17:47.083
  • These people are a newnation in the earth
  • 00:17:47.117 --> 00:17:49.686
  • and they subscribeto a higher order,
  • 00:17:49.719 --> 00:17:52.288
  • they subscribe to the ruleof the kingdom of heaven
  • 00:17:52.322 --> 00:17:55.024
  • and they do not get caught up
  • 00:17:55.058 --> 00:17:57.026
  • in the lowerentanglement of things.
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:17:59.462
  • Oh, thank you, Jesus.
  • 00:18:01.498 --> 00:18:04.200
  • Thank you, Jesus.
  • 00:18:04.234 --> 00:18:05.268
  • Verse 10.
  • 00:18:06.169 --> 00:18:07.003
  • "And then many will beoffended and betray one another
  • 00:18:08.972 --> 00:18:11.474
  • and will hate one another.
  • 00:18:11.508 --> 00:18:12.408
  • Why?
  • 00:18:12.442 --> 00:18:14.077
  • Because people aregoing to try to pull you
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:16.679
  • into the lower orderof the argument,
  • 00:18:16.713 --> 00:18:19.849
  • and you're got to remainto the higher order.
  • 00:18:19.883 --> 00:18:22.385
  • Let me tell you something.
  • 00:18:22.418 --> 00:18:23.953
  • I am not a White Christian.
  • 00:18:23.987 --> 00:18:26.356
  • I am a Christian andI happen to be White.
  • 00:18:26.389 --> 00:18:28.925
  • You are a Christian first,and that is your order.
  • 00:18:32.195 --> 00:18:36.933
  • It is your orderabove all things.
  • 00:18:39.035 --> 00:18:42.372
  • And if you ever exaltyour earthly ethnos
  • 00:18:42.405 --> 00:18:46.910
  • above your heavenly ethnos,you are forfeiting your power.
  • 00:18:46.943 --> 00:18:51.581
  • Last verse, 14.
  • 00:18:54.584 --> 00:18:55.885
  • Here's where I wanted to get to.
  • 00:18:55.919 --> 00:18:56.986
  • "And this Gospel of the kingdom
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:18:59.822
  • will be preached to the world."
  • 00:18:59.856 --> 00:19:01.524
  • Play something, ifyou would, Terrance.
  • 00:19:02.692 --> 00:19:03.993
  • (soft music)
  • 00:19:04.027 --> 00:19:06.462
  • When you adhere tothe higher order,
  • 00:19:10.667 --> 00:19:12.769
  • your ethnicity, God's people,are going to be hated too.
  • 00:19:14.470 --> 00:19:18.041
  • Okay?
  • 00:19:19.442 --> 00:19:20.276
  • Said, and people aregoing to fall away
  • 00:19:22.712 --> 00:19:25.081
  • and follow doctrines of demons.
  • 00:19:25.114 --> 00:19:26.716
  • They're going to be in pulpits.
  • 00:19:27.584 --> 00:19:28.785
  • They're going to beinspired speakers
  • 00:19:28.818 --> 00:19:30.286
  • and get other people tobe sucked by the undertow
  • 00:19:30.320 --> 00:19:32.322
  • of the raw emotion too,
  • 00:19:32.355 --> 00:19:33.690
  • and not stay withthat higher order.
  • 00:19:33.723 --> 00:19:35.725
  • That's why the Biblesays, "Make every effort,
  • 00:19:37.594 --> 00:19:40.196
  • endeavoring to keepthe unity of the Spirit
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:41.864
  • through the bond of peace."
  • 00:19:41.898 --> 00:19:43.132
  • I got to maintain myspiritual connection,
  • 00:19:43.166 --> 00:19:45.068
  • no matter what's goingon in the earth realm.
  • 00:19:45.101 --> 00:19:47.971
  • And I make every effort tokeep the unity of our Spirit,
  • 00:19:48.004 --> 00:19:52.008
  • brotherhood, bythe bonds of peace,
  • 00:19:52.041 --> 00:19:54.677
  • by the bonds ofright relationships.
  • 00:19:54.711 --> 00:19:56.646
  • I do everything to keepmy relationship right
  • 00:19:56.679 --> 00:19:59.048
  • so that the Spirit of Godmay keep us connected.
  • 00:19:59.082 --> 00:20:01.551
  • Ephesians 4:1-2.
  • 00:20:02.452 --> 00:20:03.720
  • Now he says,
  • 00:20:06.256 --> 00:20:07.724
  • "And this Gospel of thekingdom will be preached."
  • 00:20:07.757 --> 00:20:09.492
  • He said, whenlawlessness abounds,
  • 00:20:09.525 --> 00:20:11.961
  • people have departed andbrothers fighting brother,
  • 00:20:13.396 --> 00:20:15.431
  • and it seems likethere's no solution,
  • 00:20:15.465 --> 00:20:18.067
  • people's love grows cold,
  • 00:20:18.101 --> 00:20:19.502
  • and they're justlike, you know what?
  • 00:20:19.535 --> 00:20:20.770
  • I've tried and I'vetried and I've tried
  • 00:20:20.803 --> 00:20:22.005
  • and they just step onmy neck and snap it.
  • 00:20:22.038 --> 00:20:24.173
  • They don't respect thefact that I'm reaching out,
  • 00:20:24.207 --> 00:20:26.075
  • so I'm just done.
  • 00:20:26.109 --> 00:20:27.076
  • The love of many why it's cold.
  • 00:20:28.544 --> 00:20:30.113
  • "Then the Gospel of thekingdom will be preached."
  • 00:20:31.914 --> 00:20:34.884
  • The bad stuff opens thedoor for the good stuff.
  • 00:20:34.917 --> 00:20:38.888
  • There are people that don'twant to hear the kingdom.
  • 00:20:40.657 --> 00:20:43.693
  • Let me break this down.
  • 00:20:43.726 --> 00:20:45.194
  • The Gospel means Good News,the kingdom means rule.
  • 00:20:45.228 --> 00:20:47.830
  • He said, when it seemslike there's lawlessness
  • 00:20:49.032 --> 00:20:51.534
  • and no answer, then the GoodNews of God's government
  • 00:20:51.567 --> 00:20:56.539
  • will be preachedto the whole earth.
  • 00:20:58.074 --> 00:21:00.410
  • (laughs)
  • 00:21:00.443 --> 00:21:02.512
  • There is a higher order
  • 00:21:02.545 --> 00:21:05.248
  • that calls us out of allthis racial bickering.
  • 00:21:05.281 --> 00:21:08.718
  • It's the kingdom.
  • 00:21:10.553 --> 00:21:11.421
  • And it will fall uponears as good news
  • 00:21:13.323 --> 00:21:17.760
  • when people have finallyreached the conclusion
  • 00:21:17.794 --> 00:21:20.596
  • there is no mental solutionand no human ingenuity
  • 00:21:20.630 --> 00:21:25.034
  • crafty enough toform a solution.
  • 00:21:25.068 --> 00:21:27.837
  • We need the kingdom.
  • 00:21:27.870 --> 00:21:29.238
  • "Be preached to thewhole world as a witness,
  • 00:21:31.974 --> 00:21:35.778
  • and then the end will come."
  • 00:21:35.812 --> 00:21:37.547
  • Witness means evidence.Witness means proof.
  • 00:21:37.580 --> 00:21:40.450
  • So Jesus didn't comejust to save you.
  • 00:21:41.617 --> 00:21:44.620
  • Jesus came for you tobe an evidence producer.
  • 00:21:44.654 --> 00:21:48.725
  • I'm speaking to the platformand the crowd that God
  • 00:21:51.594 --> 00:21:56.132
  • has let me be responsible for.
  • 00:21:56.165 --> 00:21:57.934
  • Does your life produceevidence of the kingdom?
  • 00:22:00.503 --> 00:22:03.840
  • Or have you got sucked intothe emotion of the season?
  • 00:22:05.708 --> 00:22:09.278
  • Have you betrayed everykingdom thing you know,
  • 00:22:10.480 --> 00:22:13.683
  • because of hate,because of anger,
  • 00:22:14.851 --> 00:22:16.953
  • because you're so mad?
  • 00:22:16.986 --> 00:22:18.287
  • It's not hard to producethe kingdom in peace time.
  • 00:22:22.325 --> 00:22:26.963
  • God needs kingdom witnessproducers in divided times.
  • 00:22:28.865 --> 00:22:33.870
  • We know how to live.
  • 00:22:39.442 --> 00:22:40.710
  • And I want to say to some of us,
  • 00:22:42.211 --> 00:22:43.813
  • everybody's hurt anddisappointed in some way,
  • 00:22:45.415 --> 00:22:47.717
  • but some of us, wejust know better.
  • 00:22:50.019 --> 00:22:51.821
  • We know better thanthe words we're saying
  • 00:22:53.222 --> 00:22:55.558
  • and the anger we've gotcaught up in, we know better.
  • 00:22:56.959 --> 00:22:59.529
  • And I humbly cometoday and submit myself
  • 00:23:01.764 --> 00:23:04.267
  • to say God's calling usback to a higher order.
  • 00:23:05.468 --> 00:23:08.404
  • Don't you succumb toarguments and principles
  • 00:23:08.438 --> 00:23:10.973
  • that demons areputting in your head.
  • 00:23:11.007 --> 00:23:12.842
  • This is not my highest order.
  • 00:23:15.778 --> 00:23:18.314
  • What's in me asmy highest order.
  • 00:23:20.049 --> 00:23:22.652
  • And I must ascribe to Hisrule and His government,
  • 00:23:22.685 --> 00:23:25.922
  • and what He tells me to do,
  • 00:23:25.955 --> 00:23:27.390
  • love my enemy, turn theother cheek, shut my mouth.
  • 00:23:28.791 --> 00:23:33.296
  • I've got to learn howto do those things,
  • 00:23:34.464 --> 00:23:35.665
  • forgive, when nobody's doing it.
  • 00:23:35.698 --> 00:23:39.368
  • (upbeat electronic music)
  • 00:23:40.603 --> 00:23:44.106
  • - I just want you to know thatI'm really, really grateful
  • 00:24:11.000 --> 00:24:12.702
  • that you've tuned in with us.
  • 00:24:12.735 --> 00:24:14.203
  • It's not like in this day intime with a cable and Internet
  • 00:24:14.237 --> 00:24:17.740
  • and satellite, and let'sjust go on and on and on,
  • 00:24:17.773 --> 00:24:20.076
  • but you don't have options.
  • 00:24:20.109 --> 00:24:21.711
  • The fact that in allof these options,
  • 00:24:21.744 --> 00:24:24.180
  • there used to be threewhen I was growing up,
  • 00:24:24.213 --> 00:24:26.249

  • I've been telling people lately,
  • 00:24:50.706 --> 00:24:51.941
  • I felt like I had the need to
  • 00:24:51.974 --> 00:24:53.175
  • because our audiencehas expanded somewhat,
  • 00:24:53.209 --> 00:24:55.411
  • noticed you didn't seeany Coca-Cola commercials,
  • 00:24:55.444 --> 00:24:58.214
  • Verizon didn't come on,
  • 00:24:58.247 --> 00:24:59.482
  • and nobody tried tosell you insurance?
  • 00:24:59.515 --> 00:25:01.350
  • We didn't try to get youto go anywhere to eat
  • 00:25:01.384 --> 00:25:02.919
  • or take a trip.
  • 00:25:02.952 --> 00:25:04.387
  • There were no commercials,there were no advertisements.
  • 00:25:04.420 --> 00:25:06.122
  • Why? It was juststraight Word of God.
  • 00:25:06.155 --> 00:25:09.225
  • And that's becauseof people like you.
  • 00:25:09.258 --> 00:25:11.160
  • And maybe you said, I wouldnever give to a TV minister.
  • 00:25:11.193 --> 00:25:14.130
  • Maybe even at one timeyou were critical of it,
  • 00:25:14.163 --> 00:25:15.998
  • but now you understand thatit takes a lot of skillsets,
  • 00:25:16.032 --> 00:25:18.968
  • it takes a lot of doing toget the Word of God on TV
  • 00:25:19.001 --> 00:25:22.004
  • and blast it to the whole world.
  • 00:25:22.038 --> 00:25:23.472
  • And we are goingto the whole world

  • because people likeyou make it possible.
  • 00:25:25.274 --> 00:25:28.344
