  • 00:00:49.699 --> 00:00:51.968
  • Pastor Duane vander Klok: Well Iwant to continue a message that
  • 00:00:52.001 --> 00:00:54.204
  • we began last week on reversingthe devil's decisions.
  • 00:00:54.237 --> 00:00:59.609
  • As we all know God has a planfor our life.
  • 00:00:59.642 --> 00:01:02.612
  • Jeremiah talks about it, hesaid, God said, I know the plans
  • 00:01:02.645 --> 00:01:06.883
  • that I think towards you.
  • 00:01:06.916 --> 00:01:08.351
  • He thought thoughts of peace andnot evil to give you a future
  • 00:01:08.384 --> 00:01:11.488
  • and a hope.
  • 00:01:11.521 --> 00:01:14.290
  • God's plans for you are good.
  • 00:01:14.324 --> 00:01:16.159
  • Jesus said, I've come that youmay have life and have it
  • 00:01:16.192 --> 00:01:19.796
  • more abundantly.
  • 00:01:19.829 --> 00:01:21.764
  • That's God's plan, but the devilalso has a plan, and his plan is
  • 00:01:21.798 --> 00:01:25.602
  • to destroy your life.
  • 00:01:25.635 --> 00:01:27.103
  • Jesus said, he only comes tosteal, to kill, and to destroy.
  • 00:01:27.137 --> 00:01:31.908
  • There is an example of what hein an actual attack of the enemy
  • 00:01:31.941 --> 00:01:36.346
  • on a person's life in the Bibleand it's in a book in the Bible
  • 00:01:36.379 --> 00:01:40.383
  • called the book of Job.
  • 00:01:40.416 --> 00:01:42.919
  • You know I mentioned last weeksome people haven't read it
  • 00:01:42.952 --> 00:01:45.588
  • because they think it's the bookof Job, but it's not.
  • 00:01:45.622 --> 00:01:49.359
  • It's the book of Job, and Job isattacked by the devil and what
  • 00:01:49.392 --> 00:01:53.763
  • happens he attacks is first ofall his finances.
  • 00:01:53.796 --> 00:01:58.134
  • Secondly, he attacks his family.
  • 00:01:58.168 --> 00:02:01.237
  • Thirdly, he attacks his health.
  • 00:02:01.271 --> 00:02:06.009
  • And when the devil shows upthat's really a pretty good
  • 00:02:06.042 --> 00:02:08.611
  • picture of what happens.
  • 00:02:08.645 --> 00:02:10.847
  • He attacks your finances, hebrings fear,
  • 00:02:10.880 --> 00:02:15.218
  • sickness, depression.
  • 00:02:15.251 --> 00:02:17.520
  • With Job there were marriageproblems, all sorts of different
  • 00:02:17.554 --> 00:02:23.226
  • things that the devil comes, buthis purpose is to steal, to
  • 00:02:23.259 --> 00:02:27.430
  • kill, and to destroy.
  • 00:02:27.463 --> 00:02:29.465
  • Now we cannot stop him fromtrying, but the Bible tells us
  • 00:02:29.499 --> 00:02:33.870
  • we can stop him.
  • 00:02:33.903 --> 00:02:35.939
  • The Bible says, submit to God,resist the devil, he will flee
  • 00:02:35.972 --> 00:02:40.310
  • from you.
  • 00:02:40.343 --> 00:02:42.812
  • Not Joyce Meyers, all right, notFranklin Graham, he'll flee
  • 00:02:42.845 --> 00:02:46.683
  • from you.
  • 00:02:46.716 --> 00:02:48.851
  • Every believer, every believer,whether you've been a saint for
  • 00:02:48.885 --> 00:02:53.356
  • ten minutes or 100 years, everybeliever has authority over
  • 00:02:53.389 --> 00:02:58.795
  • the enemy.
  • 00:02:58.828 --> 00:03:00.163
  • But Peter said, be sober, bevigilant, because your adversary
  • 00:03:00.196 --> 00:03:03.833
  • the devil goes about like aroaring lion seeking whom he
  • 00:03:03.866 --> 00:03:07.370
  • may devour.
  • 00:03:07.403 --> 00:03:09.405
  • So the devil is out there, he'slooking for someone to devour.
  • 00:03:09.439 --> 00:03:14.043
  • And you say, who does he devour?
  • 00:03:14.077 --> 00:03:15.645
  • Number one, he devours ignorantpeople.
  • 00:03:15.678 --> 00:03:19.482
  • People that do not even think heexists.
  • 00:03:19.515 --> 00:03:21.584
  • It's amazing to me how mostChristians live their life
  • 00:03:21.618 --> 00:03:24.354
  • thinking that the devil was noteven real.
  • 00:03:24.387 --> 00:03:27.457
  • He is real.
  • 00:03:27.490 --> 00:03:28.791
  • Jesus faced him personally intemptation.
  • 00:03:28.825 --> 00:03:33.263
  • And if you act like he's notreal, he's able to work in your
  • 00:03:33.296 --> 00:03:37.267
  • life, because the Bible says,when you resist him he'll flee.
  • 00:03:37.300 --> 00:03:40.503
  • And the last time you resistedis the last time he fled.
  • 00:03:40.536 --> 00:03:43.406
  • So if you're not resisting he isliterally running over your life
  • 00:03:43.439 --> 00:03:48.044
  • without you even knowing it.
  • 00:03:48.077 --> 00:03:50.013
  • So we mentioned a few thingslast week.
  • 00:03:50.046 --> 00:03:51.981
  • First of all, get on track,don't look back.
  • 00:03:52.015 --> 00:03:55.985
  • Get on track and don't lookback.
  • 00:03:56.019 --> 00:03:57.687
  • Doesn't matter how bad you'vemessed up, get on track and then
  • 00:03:57.720 --> 00:04:01.190
  • keep going.
  • 00:04:01.224 --> 00:04:02.558
  • When you take a hit, don't quit.
  • 00:04:02.592 --> 00:04:04.560
  • Everybody gets knocked down.
  • 00:04:04.594 --> 00:04:07.930
  • The Bible says, the righteousmay fall seven times but
  • 00:04:07.964 --> 00:04:10.900
  • rises again.
  • 00:04:10.933 --> 00:04:13.336
  • When you get knocked down, theunrighteous thing to do is
  • 00:04:13.369 --> 00:04:16.639
  • stay down.
  • 00:04:16.673 --> 00:04:18.007
  • The righteous thing to do is toget back up.
  • 00:04:18.041 --> 00:04:21.277
  • Number three, refuse to run whenyou're under the gun.
  • 00:04:21.311 --> 00:04:26.816
  • I don't know why it is that someChristians really think that,
  • 00:04:26.849 --> 00:04:29.085
  • well, I just love God and I'mnot gonna have any problems with
  • 00:04:29.118 --> 00:04:31.421
  • the devil.
  • 00:04:31.454 --> 00:04:33.022
  • I want to tell you something, Ithink God will make sure you
  • 00:04:33.056 --> 00:04:35.458
  • have problems with the devil.
  • 00:04:35.491 --> 00:04:37.960
  • You know, when Jesus is baptizedin the Jordan River, the Holy
  • 00:04:37.994 --> 00:04:42.265
  • Spirit descends upon him in theform of a dove, and then the
  • 00:04:42.298 --> 00:04:46.669
  • next thing that happens, thevery next thing, Matthew 4 verse
  • 00:04:46.703 --> 00:04:50.273
  • 1, then Jesus was led by theHoly Spirit into the wilderness
  • 00:04:50.306 --> 00:04:56.379
  • to be tempted by the devil.
  • 00:04:56.412 --> 00:04:59.716
  • Did you get that?
  • 00:04:59.749 --> 00:05:01.050
  • The Holy Spirit led Jesus intothe wilderness to be tempted by
  • 00:05:01.084 --> 00:05:07.390
  • the devil.
  • 00:05:07.423 --> 00:05:08.725
  • Now the first Adam, he lost hisauthority, he lost his
  • 00:05:08.758 --> 00:05:14.163
  • relationship with God in thegarden of Eden.
  • 00:05:14.197 --> 00:05:17.967
  • But the Bible says that Jesus,he is the last Adam.
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:23.005
  • And when he shows up, God is notafraid to confront the devil.
  • 00:05:23.039 --> 00:05:27.543
  • In fact, he sends Jesus toconfront the enemy, and the same
  • 00:05:27.577 --> 00:05:32.982
  • thing is true with you and me.
  • 00:05:33.015 --> 00:05:36.085
  • The Holy Spirit is on the insideof you, Jesus has defeated the
  • 00:05:36.119 --> 00:05:40.857
  • devil, he's given you authority,and God is not afraid of the
  • 00:05:40.890 --> 00:05:45.828
  • devil attacking your life.
  • 00:05:45.862 --> 00:05:48.698
  • You understand that?
  • 00:05:48.731 --> 00:05:50.066
  • He understands that you have theauthority to rebuke the devil
  • 00:05:50.099 --> 00:05:53.503
  • and when you rebuke him he willflee.
  • 00:05:53.536 --> 00:05:57.707
  • The Bible says to fight the goodfight of faith.
  • 00:05:57.740 --> 00:06:01.978
  • In other words, your Christianfaith is a fight.
  • 00:06:02.011 --> 00:06:07.884
  • You don't just sit back and say,God, you know, I love you, and I
  • 00:06:07.917 --> 00:06:10.620
  • read my Bible and pray, so justlet everything good happen.
  • 00:06:10.653 --> 00:06:13.156
  • The devil is going to attack andyou need to stand and you need
  • 00:06:13.189 --> 00:06:16.259
  • to resist and you need to fightand you need to claim what Jesus
  • 00:06:16.292 --> 00:06:19.829
  • purchased for you, and you needto stand against the enemy and
  • 00:06:19.862 --> 00:06:25.034
  • literally show the devil thatJesus' victory is literally
  • 00:06:25.067 --> 00:06:31.774
  • going to be taken andestablished through you,
  • 00:06:31.808 --> 00:06:35.445
  • a part of the church.
  • 00:06:35.478 --> 00:06:38.281
  • Now there's too many Christiansthat just sit back and just kind
  • 00:06:38.314 --> 00:06:42.452
  • of have this attitude, well, youknow, Devil, you leave me alone,
  • 00:06:42.485 --> 00:06:45.054
  • I'll leave you alone.
  • 00:06:45.087 --> 00:06:47.156
  • Seriously.
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:48.491
  • Isaiah talks about it in Isaiah28, he says, because you've made
  • 00:06:48.524 --> 00:06:51.494
  • a covenant with death.
  • 00:06:51.527 --> 00:06:52.862
  • And with Sheol you've made anagreement.
  • 00:06:52.895 --> 00:06:54.797
  • When the overflowing scourgepasses through, it will not come
  • 00:06:54.831 --> 00:06:58.334
  • to us.
  • 00:06:58.367 --> 00:06:59.669
  • He says you literally, you havelike made an agreement with the
  • 00:06:59.702 --> 00:07:02.104
  • devil and, Devil, you just leaveme alone, I'll leave you alone,
  • 00:07:02.138 --> 00:07:05.408
  • you know, and when problemscome, you'll just leave me alone
  • 00:07:05.441 --> 00:07:07.977
  • and I won't resist you, I won'tbe radical in my Christian life,
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:12.982
  • I will just sit back and agreenot to bother you, and you don't
  • 00:07:13.015 --> 00:07:17.487
  • bother me.
  • 00:07:17.520 --> 00:07:18.855
  • Let me tell ya something, itdoesn't work.
  • 00:07:18.888 --> 00:07:21.123
  • The devil does not treat wellthose that serve him the best.
  • 00:07:21.157 --> 00:07:26.696
  • The Bible says to put on thefull armor of God, that you can
  • 00:07:26.729 --> 00:07:29.699
  • stand against the wiles of thedevil.
  • 00:07:29.732 --> 00:07:32.268
  • For we do not wrestle.
  • 00:07:32.301 --> 00:07:34.103
  • Unfortunately, that's all mostChristians do when it comes to,
  • 00:07:34.136 --> 00:07:37.039
  • read this verse, is we do notwrestle.
  • 00:07:37.073 --> 00:07:40.142
  • We get some Doritos, some DrPepper or a Coke, and veg out
  • 00:07:40.176 --> 00:07:45.281
  • on Netflix.
  • 00:07:45.314 --> 00:07:47.783
  • But the Bible doesn't end with,we don't wrestle.
  • 00:07:47.817 --> 00:07:50.686
  • It says, we don't wrestleagainst flesh and blood.
  • 00:07:50.720 --> 00:07:53.422
  • One translation says, but ourbattle is against persons
  • 00:07:53.456 --> 00:07:57.560
  • without bodies.
  • 00:07:57.593 --> 00:07:59.328
  • Here It says, againstprincipalities, against powers,
  • 00:07:59.362 --> 00:08:02.031
  • against the rulers of thedarkness of this age, against
  • 00:08:02.064 --> 00:08:04.534
  • the spiritual hosts ofwickedness in heavenly places.
  • 00:08:04.567 --> 00:08:07.603
  • It's just saying we have abattle against Satan and
  • 00:08:07.637 --> 00:08:11.073
  • demon power.
  • 00:08:11.107 --> 00:08:13.242
  • So that's the introduction.
  • 00:08:13.276 --> 00:08:15.711
  • Point number one, it's never toolate to be great.
  • 00:08:15.745 --> 00:08:23.252
  • It's never too late to be great.
  • 00:08:23.286 --> 00:08:25.421
  • First of all your past failuresdo not disqualify you.
  • 00:08:25.454 --> 00:08:29.992
  • Peter of course denied the Lord.
  • 00:08:30.026 --> 00:08:32.929
  • Abraham lied about his wife.
  • 00:08:32.962 --> 00:08:36.098
  • John Mark, he abandoned Barnabasand Paul on the first
  • 00:08:36.132 --> 00:08:40.670
  • missionary journey.
  • 00:08:40.703 --> 00:08:42.572
  • David committed adultery.
  • 00:08:42.605 --> 00:08:44.607
  • Noah got drunk.
  • 00:08:44.640 --> 00:08:46.342
  • Paul literally was a murderer.
  • 00:08:46.375 --> 00:08:49.378
  • And again the Bible says, theone thing that we should fear,
  • 00:08:49.412 --> 00:08:51.847
  • Hebrews 4, is that anybodythinks they missed their chance.
  • 00:08:51.881 --> 00:08:56.185
  • Your past failures do notdisqualify you.
  • 00:08:56.218 --> 00:09:00.122
  • Now, it's never too late to begreat.
  • 00:09:00.156 --> 00:09:05.595
  • It's never too late.
  • 00:09:05.628 --> 00:09:07.196
  • And listen, the devil cannotstop you.
  • 00:09:07.229 --> 00:09:10.866
  • The Bible says, resist the deviland he will flee from you.
  • 00:09:10.900 --> 00:09:17.073
  • Now I want to give you a littlebit of theology behind that.
  • 00:09:17.106 --> 00:09:19.976
  • In Colossians 1, verse 13, itsays, he has delivered us from
  • 00:09:20.009 --> 00:09:24.580
  • the power of darkness.
  • 00:09:24.614 --> 00:09:26.882
  • Or the kingdom or domain ofdarkness.
  • 00:09:26.916 --> 00:09:30.186
  • One translation says, the gloomand doom of Satan's kingdom.
  • 00:09:30.219 --> 00:09:35.091
  • And he's translated us into thekingdom of the son of his love.
  • 00:09:35.124 --> 00:09:40.796
  • Literally, Jesus cameproclaiming the kingdom of God.
  • 00:09:40.830 --> 00:09:44.467
  • He told us to pray, your kingdomcome, your will be done.
  • 00:09:44.500 --> 00:09:49.405
  • That's a picture of the kingdom.
  • 00:09:49.438 --> 00:09:51.040
  • Your will be done on earth as itis in heaven.
  • 00:09:51.073 --> 00:09:55.878
  • So literally there's twokingdoms.
  • 00:09:55.911 --> 00:09:58.180
  • There is the kingdom of God thatJesus came to proclaim and said
  • 00:09:58.214 --> 00:10:02.718
  • the kingdom of God is here.
  • 00:10:02.752 --> 00:10:04.286
  • But there is another kingdom,and the Bible calls Satan the
  • 00:10:04.320 --> 00:10:08.658
  • god, small G, of this world.
  • 00:10:08.691 --> 00:10:12.161
  • It's of this world system.
  • 00:10:12.194 --> 00:10:14.363
  • He's called the Prince of thePower of the Air.
  • 00:10:14.397 --> 00:10:17.566
  • And we have been taken out fromunder his domain and we've been
  • 00:10:17.600 --> 00:10:21.537
  • put into the kingdom of God.
  • 00:10:21.570 --> 00:10:24.273
  • The Bible says that Jesusdisarmed principalities
  • 00:10:24.306 --> 00:10:28.644
  • and powers.
  • 00:10:28.678 --> 00:10:29.979
  • And made a public spectacle ofthem, triumphing over them.
  • 00:10:30.012 --> 00:10:34.984
  • Jesus took Satan and demon powerand he defeated them, he
  • 00:10:35.017 --> 00:10:39.355
  • disarmed them.
  • 00:10:39.388 --> 00:10:40.723
  • In fact, when Jesus arose, hesaid, look, I am he who was
  • 00:10:40.756 --> 00:10:43.993
  • dead, but I am aliveforevermore.
  • 00:10:44.026 --> 00:10:48.798
  • And I have the keys of death andof Hades.
  • 00:10:48.831 --> 00:10:52.935
  • Literally Jesus took the keys toSatan's own house.
  • 00:10:52.968 --> 00:10:58.541
  • Come on, the devil doesn't evenhave the keys to his own
  • 00:10:58.574 --> 00:11:00.943
  • house anymore.
  • 00:11:00.976 --> 00:11:02.278
  • He is so disarmed, Jesustriumphed over him.
  • 00:11:02.311 --> 00:11:07.283
  • You know the word triumph is, wejust see it, oh, it's a
  • 00:11:07.316 --> 00:11:10.986
  • great victory.
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:12.388
  • But actually in Roman culturethere was a type of victory that
  • 00:11:12.421 --> 00:11:16.926
  • was considered a triumph.
  • 00:11:16.959 --> 00:11:18.994
  • Now for it to be a triumph, theenemy, their head personnel had
  • 00:11:19.028 --> 00:11:24.300
  • to have been captured or killed.
  • 00:11:24.333 --> 00:11:28.137
  • There had to be no possibilityof them regrouping and
  • 00:11:28.170 --> 00:11:31.807
  • coming back.
  • 00:11:31.841 --> 00:11:33.876
  • There were actually tendifferent criteria, and when all
  • 00:11:33.909 --> 00:11:36.979
  • of those were met, and it wouldusually happen only once or
  • 00:11:37.012 --> 00:11:39.448
  • twice in a person's lifetime,they would have a triumphal
  • 00:11:39.482 --> 00:11:43.219
  • procession in downtown Rome.
  • 00:11:43.252 --> 00:11:47.356
  • In other words, what we, you andI, need to do is we need to
  • 00:11:47.389 --> 00:11:50.726
  • recognize that we have an enemywho's going to try to keep us
  • 00:11:50.760 --> 00:11:54.597
  • from taking what belongs to us,what Jesus purchased for us.
  • 00:11:54.630 --> 00:11:59.435
  • So we're gonna have to standagainst him.
  • 00:11:59.468 --> 00:12:01.537
  • Jesus said, behold, I give youauthority to trample on serpents
  • 00:12:01.570 --> 00:12:06.542
  • and scorpions, and over all thepower of the enemy, and nothing
  • 00:12:06.575 --> 00:12:11.080
  • shall by any means hurt you.
  • 00:12:11.113 --> 00:12:13.382
  • That's why it's so important asbelievers that we discern what
  • 00:12:13.415 --> 00:12:17.386
  • things are from God and whatthings are not from God.
  • 00:12:17.419 --> 00:12:21.056
  • See because when we find a workof the devil, we are supposed to
  • 00:12:21.090 --> 00:12:24.660
  • stand against it, we're supposedto trample it under our feet,
  • 00:12:24.693 --> 00:12:28.197
  • and we're supposed todemonstrate the victory that
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:31.734
  • Jesus has purchased.
  • 00:12:31.767 --> 00:12:33.969
  • The Old Testament picture ofthis is the children of Israel,
  • 00:12:34.003 --> 00:12:37.907
  • they come out of Egypt, they gothrough the Red Sea, and y'all
  • 00:12:37.940 --> 00:12:42.044
  • know 1 Corinthians says they'rebaptized unto Moses in the sea
  • 00:12:42.077 --> 00:12:47.249
  • and under the cloud, waterbaptism, spirit baptism, they go
  • 00:12:47.283 --> 00:12:51.120
  • through the desert, they get tothe Promised Land.
  • 00:12:51.153 --> 00:12:54.690
  • Now I've heard people talk aboutthe Promised Land like
  • 00:12:54.723 --> 00:12:56.859
  • it's heaven.
  • 00:12:56.892 --> 00:12:58.227
  • But the Promised Land is notheaven, because heaven does not
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:03.699
  • have enemies.
  • 00:13:03.732 --> 00:13:06.101
  • When they got to the PromisedLand there were seven nations,
  • 00:13:06.135 --> 00:13:09.638
  • there were walled cities, therewere giants, and they needed to
  • 00:13:09.672 --> 00:13:13.909
  • go in and dispossess the enemy.
  • 00:13:13.943 --> 00:13:16.879
  • Now here's what God said, hesaid, I've given you the land.
  • 00:13:16.912 --> 00:13:20.783
  • Had he given it to them?
  • 00:13:20.816 --> 00:13:22.618
  • Yes.
  • 00:13:22.651 --> 00:13:23.986
  • But did they need to go and takepossession?
  • 00:13:24.019 --> 00:13:26.455
  • Yes.
  • 00:13:26.488 --> 00:13:27.790
  • And the same thing is true inour spiritual life.
  • 00:13:27.823 --> 00:13:30.159
  • God has given us the kingdom,but we need to go in and take
  • 00:13:30.192 --> 00:13:35.397
  • possession of the kingdom.
  • 00:13:35.431 --> 00:13:37.733
  • And just like they had battles,we are going to have battles.
  • 00:13:37.766 --> 00:13:41.670
  • So the Bible says, whatever youbind on earth shall be bound in
  • 00:13:41.704 --> 00:13:45.040
  • heaven, whatever you loose onearth will be loosed in heaven.
  • 00:13:45.074 --> 00:13:47.743
  • The Amplified says it like this,he says, I assure you most
  • 00:13:47.776 --> 00:13:52.781
  • solemnly and say to you,whatever you bind (forbid,
  • 00:13:52.815 --> 00:13:56.252
  • declare improper and unlawful)
  • 00:13:56.285 --> 00:13:58.487
  • on earth shall have already beenbound in heaven.
  • 00:13:58.520 --> 00:14:02.491
  • In other words, it's saying thethings that you say are wrong on
  • 00:14:02.524 --> 00:14:05.895
  • earth, they were wrong in heavenbefore you ever said anything.
  • 00:14:05.928 --> 00:14:09.632
  • But what you and I need to do iswe need to enforce the kingdom,
  • 00:14:09.665 --> 00:14:13.602
  • enforce the victory that Jesuspurchased for us.
  • 00:14:13.636 --> 00:14:17.806
  • Ephesians 3 in verse 20, he saysthis, now to him who is able to
  • 00:14:17.840 --> 00:14:21.777
  • do exceedingly abundantly aboveall that you ask or think,
  • 00:14:21.810 --> 00:14:26.815
  • according to his power thatworks in us.
  • 00:14:26.849 --> 00:14:29.451
  • And then it goes on and it talksabout something that's really
  • 00:14:29.485 --> 00:14:32.855
  • interesting, how God wants todemonstrate to principalities
  • 00:14:32.888 --> 00:14:36.992
  • and powers through the churchthe manifold wisdom of God.
  • 00:14:37.026 --> 00:14:42.264
  • Through the church he wants todemonstrate to principalities
  • 00:14:42.298 --> 00:14:47.303
  • and powers God's manifoldwisdom.
  • 00:14:47.336 --> 00:14:50.005
  • In other words, what that meansis God wants to use you and he
  • 00:14:50.039 --> 00:14:53.876
  • wants to use me to demonstrateSatan's defeat.
  • 00:14:53.909 --> 00:15:00.182
  • You've been given authority, butwe have to use that authority.
  • 00:15:00.215 --> 00:15:05.354
  • You are not a victim.
  • 00:15:05.387 --> 00:15:08.791
  • And don't think of yourself as avictim.
  • 00:15:08.824 --> 00:15:11.593
  • The Bible says that you wereraised up together, and been
  • 00:15:11.627 --> 00:15:15.597
  • made to sit together in heavenlyplaces in Christ.
  • 00:15:15.631 --> 00:15:20.869
  • You were raised up together withhim, you are seated with him in
  • 00:15:20.903 --> 00:15:24.840
  • heavenly places, and that samepower that raised Christ from
  • 00:15:24.873 --> 00:15:29.445
  • the dead is available to you andto me.
  • 00:15:29.478 --> 00:15:34.283
  • Jesus said, Mark 16, he said,these signs will follow them who
  • 00:15:34.316 --> 00:15:38.654
  • believe in my name.
  • 00:15:38.687 --> 00:15:42.257
  • They will cast out demons,they'll speak with new tongues,
  • 00:15:42.291 --> 00:15:45.661
  • they'll take up serpents,they'll drink any deadly thing,
  • 00:15:45.694 --> 00:15:47.997
  • it will no means hurt them, andthey'll lay hands on the sick
  • 00:15:48.030 --> 00:15:50.332
  • and they will recover.
  • 00:15:50.366 --> 00:15:52.201
  • Now notice what it says we're todo, we are to believe in
  • 00:15:52.234 --> 00:15:55.637
  • his name.
  • 00:15:55.671 --> 00:15:58.640
  • Now what most Christians do isthey believe in Jesus' victory,
  • 00:15:58.674 --> 00:16:04.113
  • and they believe in Jesus.
  • 00:16:04.146 --> 00:16:06.615
  • But let me just say somethin' toyou, Jesus is seated right now
  • 00:16:06.648 --> 00:16:11.453
  • in heaven at the right hand ofGod, and the Bible says that he
  • 00:16:11.487 --> 00:16:16.058
  • sat down.
  • 00:16:16.091 --> 00:16:18.327
  • Now the reason he sat down wasnot because he was tired, right?
  • 00:16:18.360 --> 00:16:24.366
  • Jesus didn't go, man, I just, Ijust been killed, I've been put
  • 00:16:24.400 --> 00:16:28.470
  • in a grave, I've been fightin'demons for three days, and now
  • 00:16:28.504 --> 00:16:32.174
  • I'm risen from the dead, and Iam so tired, and it was really a
  • 00:16:32.207 --> 00:16:36.478
  • lot of work, and I'm just goingto sit down.
  • 00:16:36.512 --> 00:16:39.681
  • No.
  • 00:16:39.715 --> 00:16:41.450
  • He sat down because he wasfinished.
  • 00:16:41.483 --> 00:16:45.254
  • He had done everything that heneeded to do.
  • 00:16:45.287 --> 00:16:49.425
  • Not only to redeem us but togive us victory to defeat
  • 00:16:49.458 --> 00:16:53.595
  • the enemy.
  • 00:16:53.629 --> 00:16:54.963
  • He did it all.
  • 00:16:54.997 --> 00:16:56.632
  • So most of us just believe thatJesus did it, and Jesus can
  • 00:16:56.665 --> 00:17:02.037
  • do it.
  • 00:17:02.071 --> 00:17:03.972
  • And we do things like this andwe say, God, the devil's after
  • 00:17:04.006 --> 00:17:06.909
  • me, get him.
  • 00:17:06.942 --> 00:17:10.446
  • But God already got him, andGod's already done everything
  • 00:17:10.479 --> 00:17:15.084
  • about the devil he's gonna dountil Jesus comes back.
  • 00:17:15.117 --> 00:17:19.054
  • And Jesus sat down because hewas finished.
  • 00:17:19.088 --> 00:17:22.891
  • And he's given you and Iauthority, and that authority is
  • 00:17:22.925 --> 00:17:26.495
  • in his name.
  • 00:17:26.528 --> 00:17:28.297
  • John 14, verse 12, mostassuredly, I say to you, whoever
  • 00:17:28.330 --> 00:17:31.700
  • believes in me, the works that Ido will he do also, and greater
  • 00:17:31.733 --> 00:17:34.937
  • works than these will he do,because I go to the Father.
  • 00:17:34.970 --> 00:17:38.340
  • And whatever you ask in my name,that I will do, that the Father
  • 00:17:38.373 --> 00:17:42.611
  • may be glorified in the son.
  • 00:17:42.644 --> 00:17:44.179
  • If you ask anything in my name,I will do it.
  • 00:17:44.213 --> 00:17:49.852
  • So Jesus is saying that what hehas done is given us power
  • 00:17:49.885 --> 00:17:55.190
  • of eternity.
  • 00:17:55.224 --> 00:17:56.525
  • He has given us his name.
  • 00:17:56.558 --> 00:17:58.760
  • In fact, if I were to ask you,what is the great commandment?
  • 00:17:58.794 --> 00:18:03.198
  • What is the commandment in theNew Testament?
  • 00:18:03.232 --> 00:18:07.836
  • Most would just say, well, youknow, the love, to love.
  • 00:18:07.870 --> 00:18:10.405
  • And you would be half right.
  • 00:18:10.439 --> 00:18:13.308
  • I wanna read to you thecommandment.
  • 00:18:13.342 --> 00:18:15.911
  • And this is his commandment, 1John 2:23, that you should
  • 00:18:15.944 --> 00:18:21.550
  • believe in the name of his sonJesus Christ.
  • 00:18:21.583 --> 00:18:26.555
  • This is his commandment that youshould believe in the name.
  • 00:18:26.588 --> 00:18:31.894
  • Not that Jesus can do it, butthat his name will do it.
  • 00:18:31.927 --> 00:18:37.566
  • That everything Jesus did, thevictory he won, is in his name.
  • 00:18:37.599 --> 00:18:44.473
  • So this is his commandment, thatyou should believe in the name
  • 00:18:44.506 --> 00:18:47.876
  • of his son Jesus Christ and loveone another, as he gave
  • 00:18:47.910 --> 00:18:52.881
  • us commandment.
  • 00:18:52.915 --> 00:18:54.216
  • Really for New Testamentbelievers, there's one
  • 00:18:54.249 --> 00:18:56.552
  • commandment with two parts.
  • 00:18:56.585 --> 00:18:59.488
  • One part is that we believe inthe name, and the other part is
  • 00:18:59.521 --> 00:19:05.794
  • that we love one another.
  • 00:19:05.827 --> 00:19:08.297
  • Now if you just believe thatJesus can do something,
  • 00:19:08.330 --> 00:19:11.633
  • you will live a defeated life.
  • 00:19:11.667 --> 00:19:14.636
  • It would be like if I wrote acheck and I signed it and gave
  • 00:19:14.670 --> 00:19:18.807
  • you that check for a thousanddollars and you went to the bank
  • 00:19:18.840 --> 00:19:21.810
  • and, you know, I just don't, Idon't think I could cash that.
  • 00:19:21.843 --> 00:19:25.681
  • I know Duane put his name on it,but I just want him to come
  • 00:19:25.714 --> 00:19:29.084
  • with me.
  • 00:19:29.117 --> 00:19:30.852
  • If he was there I know they'dgive me the money.
  • 00:19:30.886 --> 00:19:33.622
  • But all we've got is his name.
  • 00:19:33.655 --> 00:19:36.692
  • You see what God has done is hehas given us Jesus' name.
  • 00:19:36.725 --> 00:19:41.930
  • And the Bible tells us inPhilippians that God's given him
  • 00:19:41.964 --> 00:19:44.933
  • a name that's above every name,that at the name of Jesus every
  • 00:19:44.967 --> 00:19:47.903
  • knee should bow of those inheaven, those on earth, and
  • 00:19:47.936 --> 00:19:51.273
  • those under the earth, and thatevery tongue should confess that
  • 00:19:51.306 --> 00:19:55.010
  • Jesus Christ is Lord, to theglory of God the Father.
  • 00:19:55.043 --> 00:19:59.047
  • So we've got to use the name.
  • 00:19:59.081 --> 00:20:01.617
  • Now I want to give you anexample.
  • 00:20:01.650 --> 00:20:05.120
  • Acts chapter 16.
  • 00:20:05.153 --> 00:20:09.157
  • Paul and Silas are in Macedonia,and they're preaching the
  • 00:20:09.191 --> 00:20:16.732
  • gospel, and it says, as we wentto prayer, a certain slave girl
  • 00:20:16.765 --> 00:20:21.770
  • possessed with a spirit ofdivination met us, who brought
  • 00:20:21.803 --> 00:20:25.507
  • her masters much profit byfortune-telling.
  • 00:20:25.540 --> 00:20:29.711
  • Look at me just a minute.
  • 00:20:29.745 --> 00:20:31.046
  • Notice the Bible recognizes herethat there are demonic forces.
  • 00:20:31.079 --> 00:20:37.219
  • Satan and demons are real.
  • 00:20:37.252 --> 00:20:40.455
  • It mentions here that she had aspirit of divination.
  • 00:20:40.489 --> 00:20:45.093
  • If you will go home and grab aconcordance or do a little study
  • 00:20:45.127 --> 00:20:49.231
  • you'll find that the Greekactually says she had a
  • 00:20:49.264 --> 00:20:51.667
  • python spirit.
  • 00:20:51.700 --> 00:20:53.602
  • A python spirit.
  • 00:20:53.635 --> 00:20:55.203
  • Which is a picture of what Satanwants us to do.
  • 00:20:55.237 --> 00:20:58.473
  • How many know what a pythondoes?
  • 00:20:58.507 --> 00:21:00.776
  • It finds its prey and it wrapsitself around its prey and
  • 00:21:00.809 --> 00:21:04.546
  • crushes its prey.
  • 00:21:04.579 --> 00:21:06.948
  • That is ultimately what Satanwants to do, he wants to crush
  • 00:21:06.982 --> 00:21:11.586
  • our life.
  • 00:21:11.620 --> 00:21:12.921
  • But this girl had a spirit.
  • 00:21:12.954 --> 00:21:15.724
  • The girl followed Paul and us,and cried out, saying, these men
  • 00:21:15.757 --> 00:21:18.427
  • are servants of the most highGod, who proclaim to us the way
  • 00:21:18.460 --> 00:21:21.730
  • of salvation.
  • 00:21:21.763 --> 00:21:23.098
  • This she did for many days.
  • 00:21:23.131 --> 00:21:24.599
  • But Paul, greatly annoyed,turned and said to the spirit, I
  • 00:21:24.633 --> 00:21:29.171
  • command you in the name of JesusChrist to come out of her.
  • 00:21:29.204 --> 00:21:36.545
  • I command you in the name ofJesus Christ to come out of her.
  • 00:21:36.578 --> 00:21:41.750
  • Remember the commandment is tobelieve in the name.
  • 00:21:41.783 --> 00:21:46.621
  • When you believe in the name.
  • 00:21:46.655 --> 00:21:48.990
  • You say, well, I'm young, I'mold, I'm a male, I'm a female,
  • 00:21:49.024 --> 00:21:52.094
  • I'm educated, I've got financialproblems, whatever it is, it
  • 00:21:52.127 --> 00:21:55.630
  • doesn't matter, because the keyis believing in the name.
  • 00:21:55.664 --> 00:22:01.703
  • Not that Jesus can do it, butthat just to same as if Jesus
  • 00:22:01.737 --> 00:22:06.041
  • were personally there.
  • 00:22:06.074 --> 00:22:08.009
  • When you use that name.
  • 00:22:08.043 --> 00:22:09.878
  • Jesus said he will back you up.
  • 00:22:09.911 --> 00:22:12.547
  • He will do whatever isnecessary, whatever is spoken,
  • 00:22:12.581 --> 00:22:17.686
  • whatever you ask, Jesus said,I'll do it.
  • 00:22:17.719 --> 00:22:20.922
  • So he commanded that spirit inthe name of Jesus to come out,
  • 00:22:20.956 --> 00:22:24.426
  • and it came out that very hour.
  • 00:22:24.459 --> 00:22:28.096
  • See the same thing that Paulhad, you and I have, it's the
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:32.434
  • name of Jesus.
  • 00:22:32.467 --> 00:22:33.769
  • But we've got to put faith inthat name.
  • 00:22:33.802 --> 00:22:37.973
  • Just about three more minutes,let me just say this.
  • 00:22:38.006 --> 00:22:40.041
  • The devil can't stop you, peoplecannot stop you.
  • 00:22:40.075 --> 00:22:43.612
  • People can't stop you.
  • 00:22:43.645 --> 00:22:44.980
  • It says it like this inEcclesiastes 8, verse 8, it
  • 00:22:45.013 --> 00:22:47.682
  • says, no one has power over thespirit to restrain the spirit.
  • 00:22:47.716 --> 00:22:52.587
  • Nobody has power over the spiritto restrain the spirit.
  • 00:22:52.621 --> 00:22:56.425
  • Now what that means is this.
  • 00:22:56.458 --> 00:22:57.859
  • Nobody can make you do anything.
  • 00:22:57.893 --> 00:23:01.730
  • Nobody can make you do anything.
  • 00:23:01.763 --> 00:23:05.934
  • Nobody has authority over yourspirit.
  • 00:23:05.967 --> 00:23:09.304
  • You can decide where you'regoing, what you're gonna do.
  • 00:23:09.337 --> 00:23:13.608
  • Now I know people will talk.
  • 00:23:13.642 --> 00:23:16.411
  • And David, when he was going tokill Goliath, his brother began
  • 00:23:16.445 --> 00:23:19.714
  • to make accusations, he said, Iknow the influence of your
  • 00:23:19.748 --> 00:23:22.284
  • heart, with who have you leftthose few sheep, you've just
  • 00:23:22.317 --> 00:23:25.253
  • come down to see the battle.
  • 00:23:25.287 --> 00:23:27.622
  • And he began to criticize and totear him down.
  • 00:23:27.656 --> 00:23:31.760
  • Every person who's ever doneanything for God has had a lot
  • 00:23:31.793 --> 00:23:35.864
  • of people criticize them forwhat they did.
  • 00:23:35.897 --> 00:23:38.800
  • But that criticism, it won'tstop you.
  • 00:23:38.834 --> 00:23:42.170
  • They couldn't stop David, theycan't stop you.
  • 00:23:42.204 --> 00:23:45.140
  • God is on your side, and theblood has been applied, and
  • 00:23:45.173 --> 00:23:50.278
  • every need will be supplied.
  • 00:23:50.312 --> 00:23:53.849
  • Pastor Duane vander Klok: Youknow, so many of us, we try to
  • 00:23:53.882 --> 00:23:56.485
  • reach God without realizing thatGod has already reached down to
  • 00:23:56.518 --> 00:24:01.323
  • rescue us through Jesus.
  • 00:24:01.356 --> 00:24:03.525
  • And if you're watching today butyou know you're not right with
  • 00:24:03.558 --> 00:24:06.561
  • God, you're away from God, andyou say, I wanna be right, I
  • 00:24:06.595 --> 00:24:09.831
  • wanna be forgiven, I wanna be achild of God, I wanna invite you
  • 00:24:09.865 --> 00:24:13.702
  • right now, bow your head andpray this prayer with me.
  • 00:24:13.735 --> 00:24:16.838
  • Make these words your own.
  • 00:24:16.872 --> 00:24:18.173
  • Just say, O God, I believe Jesusdied on the cross, I believe his
  • 00:24:18.206 --> 00:24:23.378
  • blood paid for my sins, Ibelieve that he rose again, and
  • 00:24:23.411 --> 00:24:28.116
  • I believe he's coming again.
  • 00:24:28.149 --> 00:24:30.118
  • Today I receive the forgivenessthat Jesus purchased for me, and
  • 00:24:30.151 --> 00:24:34.956
  • today I give him all of my heartand all of my life.
  • 00:24:34.990 --> 00:24:38.560
  • I hold nothing back.
  • 00:24:38.593 --> 00:24:41.062
  • I thank you, you've heard myprayer, that I'm a part of your
  • 00:24:41.096 --> 00:24:44.799
  • family today and forever.
  • 00:24:44.833 --> 00:24:48.169
  • In Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:24:48.203 --> 00:24:50.605
  • Now if you prayed that simpleprayer from your heart, you are
  • 00:24:50.639 --> 00:24:53.708
  • right with God.
  • 00:24:53.742 --> 00:24:55.076
