  • so let's vow to make it a better place.
  • 00:01:17.020 --> 00:01:21.230
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:27.000
  • your love is here to stay.
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:29.260
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life.
  • 00:01:29.270 --> 00:01:33.180
  • Oh, let his love shine bright in you.
  • 00:01:33.190 --> 00:01:37.290
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace,
  • 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:41.030
  • so we embrace your love today.
  • 00:01:41.040 --> 00:01:44.190
  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:48.000
  • Creflo: Real Christianity is not re-giving you laws and rules
  • 00:01:49.240 --> 00:01:55.100
  • and regulations, and that's what people under grace look for,
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:59.180
  • or people who struggle with grace look for.
  • 00:01:59.190 --> 00:02:01.110
  • "I want laws, I want rules, I want regulations."
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:04.170
  • "No, I've given you a person, if you will
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:08.250
  • fellowship and get to know him.
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:11.010
  • I sent him.
  • 00:02:11.020 --> 00:02:12.130
  • He poured the love of God in your heart," and as you
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:15.140
  • fellowship with him, that love begins to flood your
  • 00:02:15.150 --> 00:02:19.030
  • spirit and flows out of you; and out of the outflowing of
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:23.020
  • that love of God that's been poured in you, it now begins to
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:26.110
  • move you to do things that you're anointed to do, but it's
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:30.100
  • because of your relationship with him that does it.
  • 00:02:30.110 --> 00:02:32.260
  • If I didn't--if my ministry to you was not born out of my
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:37.160
  • relationship with him, I'd have quit.
  • 00:02:37.170 --> 00:02:40.060
  • I'd either quit a long time ago or blow my brains out a long
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:42.220
  • time ago, and I don't know how people do it
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:46.040
  • if they don't have--I don't know how a preacher
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:48.010
  • pastors a church without a relationship with God.
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:53.240
  • A relationship with God, a few years ago, moved me to
  • 00:02:53.250 --> 00:02:57.160
  • give more financially than I've ever given before.
  • 00:02:57.170 --> 00:03:01.230
  • But if I come to you and say, "Well, now the key to
  • 00:03:01.240 --> 00:03:03.080
  • this thing is is you gotta multiply your offerings times
  • 00:03:03.090 --> 00:03:05.220
  • three and then God'll bless you," no, no, like, I don't
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:09.180
  • wanna give you the mechanics of what I got out
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:11.090
  • of my relationship with God.
  • 00:03:11.100 --> 00:03:13.000
  • Listen, I'm not saying--don't throw away your faith.
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:14.270
  • No, don't throw away your faith.
  • 00:03:14.280 --> 00:03:16.070
  • You're gonna learn how--those same principles and mechanics of
  • 00:03:16.080 --> 00:03:19.070
  • faith will work, but you can't have
  • 00:03:19.080 --> 00:03:20.210
  • mechanics without the person.
  • 00:03:20.220 --> 00:03:22.190
  • Say, "Amen."
  • 00:03:30.220 --> 00:03:32.250
  • All right, let's dig a little bit more.
  • 00:03:32.260 --> 00:03:38.260
  • The mechanics of Christianity do not produce the all things.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:47.140
  • The mechanics of Christianity--2 Peter chapter 1:3,
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:51.010
  • "All things are made available to you through," what?
  • 00:03:51.020 --> 00:03:55.000
  • "The knowledge of him."
  • 00:03:55.010 --> 00:03:59.290
  • I know so many people who spend a lot of
  • 00:04:00.020 --> 00:04:01.210
  • time doing the mechanics.
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:03.120
  • "I've been confessing for two years for this to come to pass,
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:06.100
  • and you still don't know Jesus."
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:10.140
  • Wow!
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:13.040
  • "I've been praying two hours a day," and nothing's changed in
  • 00:04:13.050 --> 00:04:15.270
  • your life at all, because the mechanics without the originator
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:24.280
  • of the principles is nothing but religion that leaves you stuck
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:31.210
  • and stranded in the same place.
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:38.250
  • The fruit of Christian--a Christian life comes out of
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:42.080
  • really knowing God, who I am because of my relationship with
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:48.070
  • Jesus, what I do because of my relationship with Jesus,
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:52.200
  • what I have because of my relationship with Jesus.
  • 00:04:52.210 --> 00:04:58.050
  • Faith comes from knowing him and knowing him is the basis of
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:05:03.160
  • everything else in Christianity.
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:08.140
  • You're trying to work the mechanics of faith,
  • 00:05:08.150 --> 00:05:10.110
  • but real faith comes from knowing him.
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:12.260
  • I know God, so my faith is strong,
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:16.080
  • where certain things are taken care of because I know him.
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:21.050
  • When my engine stopped I don't know how many years ago over the
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:24.270
  • Pacific Ocean, I mean, how do you bear that?
  • 00:05:24.280 --> 00:05:27.210
  • 'Cause I know him.
  • 00:05:27.220 --> 00:05:29.060
  • I have the right impression of him.
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:30.230
  • He's my protector.
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:32.130
  • He watches over me, lest I dash my foot against a stone.
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:37.030
  • I know this; and because I know him, here's
  • 00:05:37.040 --> 00:05:43.060
  • the one thing that I know.
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:46.050
  • Here's the one thing I know: I know God loves me.
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:52.150
  • That's on my relationship.
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:54.220
  • Now, watch this. Galatians, what is it, 5:6?
  • 00:05:54.230 --> 00:05:56.290
  • "Faith worketh by love."
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:06:02.100
  • Now, see, without understanding the right context,
  • 00:06:02.110 --> 00:06:04.200
  • the grace-based context, here's how we've translated that: faith
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:08.200
  • worketh by how much you love him.
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:11.090
  • That ain't what he's talking about.
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:13.200
  • No, no, no, no, faith worketh by how much you believe
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:18.000
  • the love he has for you.
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:22.090
  • See, you've been going around trying to love God into a
  • 00:06:22.100 --> 00:06:25.090
  • position so your faith can work.
  • 00:06:25.100 --> 00:06:28.130
  • No, your faith worketh by how much do you believe God loves
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:33.040
  • you; and in every stupid thing that's ever happened in my life,
  • 00:06:33.050 --> 00:06:37.070
  • here's the first thing I went to: "I know God loves me,
  • 00:06:37.080 --> 00:06:42.010
  • and I know God loves me extravagantly,
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:44.270
  • and I know God loves me."
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:46.070
  • I'm not talking about no Scriptures.
  • 00:06:46.080 --> 00:06:48.090
  • I'm not talking about what was right and what was wrong.
  • 00:06:48.100 --> 00:06:51.120
  • I don't--I'm not talking about what I did right
  • 00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:53.160
  • and what I did wrong.
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:55.010
  • I am only focusing on one thing: God loves me.
  • 00:06:55.020 --> 00:07:01.150
  • This is why God did not--I'm fixing to go somewhere.
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:04.140
  • Oh, God.
  • 00:07:04.150 --> 00:07:05.240
  • This is why God did not want Adam and Eve to eat from the
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:08.140
  • tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:07:08.150 --> 00:07:10.230
  • He did not want them to know the ins and out of sin.
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:19.020
  • He wanted them to know him, not the ins and out of sin.
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:24.210
  • Can you imagine living forever and having to deal with the
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:33.260
  • torture of your sin and what it did and how it messed up this
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:41.010
  • situation and how it got passed down to that life and how that
  • 00:07:41.020 --> 00:07:44.190
  • happened and the consequences of this and this and this?
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:48.150
  • That would be tormenting.
  • 00:07:48.160 --> 00:07:51.100
  • God never wanted man to even know nothing about that.
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:54.120
  • "Know me."
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:08:01.280
  • It's the sin consciousness that a lot of Christians are stuck in
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:04.260
  • today, that they can't serve the living God,
  • 00:08:04.270 --> 00:08:08.180
  • so their sin consciousness moves them to produce dead works,
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:12.050
  • try to do stuff to get stuff from God,
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:15.140
  • trying to preform to get God to respond.
  • 00:08:15.150 --> 00:08:19.150
  • That's a result of sin consciousness; and then every
  • 00:08:19.160 --> 00:08:21.230
  • time you fail, it feels worse and then more guilt and more
  • 00:08:21.240 --> 00:08:24.290
  • shame and more guilt and more shame.
  • 00:08:25.000 --> 00:08:27.290
  • Can you imagine living a thousand years
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:31.040
  • having to deal with all that?
  • 00:08:31.050 --> 00:08:32.140
  • He did not want--man was created to be immortal.
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:35.240
  • You were never supposed to die; and
  • 00:08:35.250 --> 00:08:41.230
  • besides, if they'd went and asked God about it,
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:44.050
  • it was their relationship with him.
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:46.090
  • It was their relationship with him.
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:48.020
  • It started off with mankind.
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:49.190
  • The power, everything they had, came through knowing God.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:57.090
  • Then we got sophisticated in church, and now a sermon like
  • 00:08:57.100 --> 00:09:01.150
  • this is too simple, and I'm not concerned about the complication
  • 00:09:01.160 --> 00:09:06.010
  • of what I'm preaching to you tonight.
  • 00:09:06.020 --> 00:09:07.110
  • I am concerned about is this too simple
  • 00:09:07.120 --> 00:09:10.040
  • that it goes over your head?
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:14.010
  • It's so powerful, because any time you tell me something
  • 00:09:14.020 --> 00:09:18.130
  • didn't work I'm gonna respond this way,
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:20.050
  • "Are you satisfied with the amount of time you've been
  • 00:09:20.060 --> 00:09:22.040
  • spending with God and in his Word?"
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:26.070
  • You know what?
  • 00:09:26.080 --> 00:09:27.170
  • 'Cause when you start developing a personal relationship
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:29.030
  • with him, nothing really matters.
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:32.170
  • The Bible talks about that your peace and grace
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:34.250
  • is multiplied through what?
  • 00:09:34.260 --> 00:09:38.080
  • Knowledge of him.
  • 00:09:38.090 --> 00:09:41.090
  • You can multiply your peace and grace through the knowledge of
  • 00:09:41.100 --> 00:09:44.000
  • him, through knowing him, so I'm going back to ground zero
  • 00:09:44.010 --> 00:09:49.220
  • because at the end of the day, more mechanics
  • 00:09:49.230 --> 00:09:53.110
  • will not produce more results.
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:56.260
  • But going back to ground zero, the day you got saved,
  • 00:09:56.270 --> 00:09:59.080
  • the reason you got saved--and, oh,
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:01.040
  • by the way, you gotta look at the reasons you get saved.
  • 00:10:01.050 --> 00:10:04.290
  • Men have got to begin to examine whether
  • 00:10:05.000 --> 00:10:07.210
  • or not they are in the faith.
  • 00:10:07.220 --> 00:10:11.250
  • Did you follow some religion?
  • 00:10:11.260 --> 00:10:13.050
  • Did you follow the mechanics of salvation and never really had a
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:19.260
  • yearning and a hunger and a relationship with Jesus?
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:23.210
  • Were you're told to memorize these ten things,
  • 00:10:23.220 --> 00:10:26.200
  • or where you're told get to know Jesus, 'cause those are
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:31.240
  • gonna be the most powerful people on the planet.
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:35.060
  • And people that know Jesus will be ridiculed,
  • 00:10:35.070 --> 00:10:37.280
  • and they that know God and those who live God, they will suffer
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:40.160
  • persecution, and if all you're gonna do is follow the mechanics
  • 00:10:40.170 --> 00:10:44.130
  • of other men and women of God, at the end of the day, you're
  • 00:10:44.140 --> 00:10:48.120
  • not gonna be able to take their mechanics,
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:51.030
  • apply it to your life without knowing who God
  • 00:10:51.040 --> 00:10:53.230
  • is and having a relationship with God.
  • 00:10:53.240 --> 00:10:55.030
  • And so, we see great men and great women,
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:57.020
  • and we ignore the fact that their greatness came through a
  • 00:10:57.030 --> 00:10:59.270
  • relationship with God, through a knowing of who God is.
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:05.000
  • I know God loves me.
  • 00:11:05.010 --> 00:11:08.190
  • I don't ever think about beating myself up,
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:11.140
  • 'cause God loves me.
  • 00:11:11.150 --> 00:11:12.290
  • And if I think about beating myself up,
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:14.210
  • that's all I hear: "You know, I love you."
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:17.270
  • I wanna hear from God.
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.120
  • "Well, you know, when you mess up, you can't hear from God."
  • 00:11:20.130 --> 00:11:22.090
  • Well, you better look again.
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.210
  • Cain killed his brother, and God spoke to him half the chapter.
  • 00:11:23.220 --> 00:11:29.060
  • No, God was still speaking.
  • 00:11:29.070 --> 00:11:31.250
  • We're not trying to justify sin, we're trying to get you
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:34.120
  • refocused in on a personal relationship with Jesus.
  • 00:11:34.130 --> 00:11:39.220
  • So the fruit of a Christian's life
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:41.050
  • comes out of really knowing God.
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:44.080
  • You wanna walk in love where other people are concerned?
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:46.120
  • You wanna display the fruit of the Spirit where
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:49.080
  • other people are concerned?
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:51.010
  • You cannot spend time with God and bring forth bad fruit,
  • 00:11:51.020 --> 00:11:57.110
  • so the issue is not, "I'm a bad Christian."
  • 00:11:57.120 --> 00:11:59.140
  • The issue is you don't know God enough.
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:01.200
  • "Oh, I just need to discipline--I just
  • 00:12:05.150 --> 00:12:07.160
  • need to discipline my emotions."
  • 00:12:07.170 --> 00:12:08.260
  • No, you need a relationship with God,
  • 00:12:08.270 --> 00:12:11.180
  • wearing that title called "Christian."
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:16.290
  • Faith comes from knowing him and knowing him is the basis of
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:20.110
  • everything else in Christianity, and we are in a generation now
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:25.250
  • where we got a lot of principle-minded Christians
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:28.220
  • who don't know God, and we're trying to be like
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:33.070
  • him without knowing him.
  • 00:12:33.080 --> 00:12:36.010
  • So, if we really knew God, all of his fullness
  • 00:12:36.020 --> 00:12:40.000
  • would already be ours.
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:41.190
  • If we really, really knew God, all of his fullness would
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:45.180
  • already be ours if we really knew God.
  • 00:12:45.190 --> 00:12:49.020
  • I believe in prosperity.
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:51.110
  • I believe that God wants to prosper us.
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:53.010
  • However, people wouldn't have to know all the ins and out of
  • 00:12:53.020 --> 00:12:56.180
  • prosperity, all the techniques and all the principles,
  • 00:12:56.190 --> 00:12:59.210
  • because if they really, really were seeking the kingdom of God
  • 00:12:59.220 --> 00:13:03.170
  • and his righteousness, everything else will be added
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:06.020
  • unto them, Matthew chapter 6:33.
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:08.190
  • It would happen.
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:10.060
  • Somebody said, "Don't you have to give?"
  • 00:13:10.070 --> 00:13:11.210
  • See, there you go again. You're so mechanic-minded.
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:14.280
  • The notion is that God's not gonna
  • 00:13:14.290 --> 00:13:17.060
  • tell you to do the right thing.
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:18.160
  • See, this is the thing that I learned when I first got saved.
  • 00:13:18.170 --> 00:13:21.030
  • God was telling me to do stuff I didn't even know was in the
  • 00:13:21.040 --> 00:13:23.070
  • Bible; and then later on, I found out, "Oh, my God,
  • 00:13:23.080 --> 00:13:28.280
  • that's in the Bible."
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:30.190
  • So we gotta reevaluate the purpose of faith.
  • 00:13:38.060 --> 00:13:41.050
  • All right, now listen to me very carefully now,
  • 00:13:41.060 --> 00:13:43.260
  • 'cause I'm gonna challenge you with this.
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:48.170
  • Many have taken our faith teaching,
  • 00:13:48.180 --> 00:13:51.130
  • many have taken my faith teaching,
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:54.140
  • and they've used it to try to get more material things; and
  • 00:13:54.150 --> 00:14:00.020
  • nothing's wrong with having nice materials.
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:02.090
  • I'm not gonna tell you that, there's nothing wrong at all you
  • 00:14:02.100 --> 00:14:05.180
  • having a nice car, nice house.
  • 00:14:05.190 --> 00:14:08.000
  • There's nothing wrong with that.
  • 00:14:08.010 --> 00:14:09.100
  • That's not what I'm saying, but I am saying let's back up a
  • 00:14:09.110 --> 00:14:13.010
  • little bit and just really look at the purpose of this faith.
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:16.290
  • I believe God gave us faith in order to get to know him.
  • 00:14:17.000 --> 00:14:24.160
  • I believe God gave us faith in order to get to know him; and
  • 00:14:24.170 --> 00:14:32.220
  • then because of his divine life that begins to flow through us
  • 00:14:32.230 --> 00:14:36.200
  • because we know him, the cars, the houses,
  • 00:14:36.210 --> 00:14:40.030
  • the--all that other stuff, it'll find us.
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:45.030
  • Oh, y'all don't understand.
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:52.100
  • See, you've been trying to--you've been pursuing it and
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:56.290
  • the blessings are supposed to pursue you,
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:15:02.240
  • but you got so into the mechanics of the materials, you
  • 00:15:02.250 --> 00:15:06.040
  • went after them, and that was the pull that got you in church.
  • 00:15:06.050 --> 00:15:09.160
  • That's the thing that got you, you know, praying.
  • 00:15:09.170 --> 00:15:12.050
  • That's the thing that got you doing all the things,
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:14.130
  • because your motivation was you were gonna finally
  • 00:15:14.140 --> 00:15:16.230
  • catch what you're pursuing.
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:19.210
  • In fact, if you would develop this relationship with God that
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:23.080
  • I'm talking about, the car, the house, the prosperity,
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:26.260
  • that would become a byproduct of knowing God.
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:33.000
  • Oh, I know what I'm talking about, y'all,
  • 00:15:33.010 --> 00:15:34.260
  • a byproduct of knowing God.
  • 00:15:34.270 --> 00:15:37.180
  • That because I know him, this is,
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:39.120
  • like, the wet with the water.
  • 00:15:39.130 --> 00:15:41.080
  • If I jump in the water, I will get wet.
  • 00:15:41.090 --> 00:15:43.210
  • I don't have to pursue wet.
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:47.000
  • It's a byproduct of the water.
  • 00:15:47.010 --> 00:15:49.230
  • Oh, my gosh, and I am telling you--I'm telling you to examine
  • 00:15:49.240 --> 00:15:54.000
  • and to evaluate your Christianity and where in your
  • 00:15:54.010 --> 00:15:59.050
  • Christianity can you find that "I have a real
  • 00:15:59.060 --> 00:16:03.080
  • personal relationship with God?"
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:07.000
  • I talk to him. He talks to me.
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:11.140
  • I know him.
  • 00:16:11.150 --> 00:16:14.100
  • I have told him things that I ain't told nobody,
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:18.140
  • and he's told me things, praise God?
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:21.220
  • And he's the reason why I got peace.
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:24.090
  • He's the reason why I have joy, and the fruit that you see is
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:27.280
  • not manufactured fruit, praise God?
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:30.250
  • This is an overflow of my relationship with him.
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:36.040
  • It's not me having joy because I know joy will get me this.
  • 00:16:36.050 --> 00:16:43.020
  • It's not me having faith 'cause I know faith will get me this.
  • 00:16:43.030 --> 00:16:47.170
  • It's a byproduct of the very basis of my Christianity,
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:56.010
  • my relationship with Jesus.
  • 00:16:56.020 --> 00:17:01.140
  • Now, you don't think what I'm saying is key,
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:04.110
  • pause and just back up a little bit.
  • 00:17:04.120 --> 00:17:06.120
  • Back up a little bit and look at Christianity from this
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:09.000
  • perspective, and everybody seems like they gotta have a reason to
  • 00:17:09.010 --> 00:17:12.220
  • serve God, and I'll tell you what,
  • 00:17:12.230 --> 00:17:14.280
  • and if God doesn't seem to be coming through with the reason,
  • 00:17:14.290 --> 00:17:20.180
  • they question whether they wanna serve him anyway.
  • 00:17:20.190 --> 00:17:23.090
  • Man, I had somebody say that to me, I snapped.
  • 00:17:23.100 --> 00:17:26.260
  • I snapped, and only my relationship
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:28.100
  • with God pulled me back.
  • 00:17:28.110 --> 00:17:29.240
  • It's like what are you talking about?
  • 00:17:29.250 --> 00:17:32.170
  • What are you talking about?
  • 00:17:32.180 --> 00:17:33.270
  • Oh, if it's not going right, you wanna just quit on him?
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:37.140
  • Well, just quit, because you have to have a relationship with
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:42.080
  • God when everything--when all hell
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:44.260
  • breaking loose in your life.
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:46.060
  • You still wake up and you have a relationship with God.
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:52.130
  • I don't have a relationship with God only when people
  • 00:17:52.140 --> 00:17:55.080
  • are saying nice things about me.
  • 00:17:55.090 --> 00:17:56.230
  • When they're creating stupid narratives about me,
  • 00:17:56.240 --> 00:17:59.230
  • I have a relationship with God.
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.070
  • People ask me, "How in the world can you
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:02.170
  • get through with so many--"
  • 00:18:02.180 --> 00:18:03.270
  • I ain't paying that no attention.
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:05.220
  • I have a relationship with God.
  • 00:18:05.230 --> 00:18:07.020
  • My relationship with God gets me through all that mess.
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:09.230
  • I already know that they that--the godly shall suffer
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:12.060
  • persecution, but my relationship with God walks me through all
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:15.150
  • the persecution, and I come out with the byproducts
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:19.220
  • of that relationship with God.
  • 00:18:19.230 --> 00:18:21.130
  • It's not, "Sit down and tell me what did you
  • 00:18:21.140 --> 00:18:23.250
  • do to be able to do that?"
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:25.070
  • and you want me to give you the mechanics of it,
  • 00:18:25.080 --> 00:18:27.120
  • but my mechanics that come out of my relationship with
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:30.010
  • God might not work for you.
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:32.160
  • You gotta spend time with God so he can give you revelation of
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:35.190
  • what you need to do, because you won't get breakthrough until you
  • 00:18:35.200 --> 00:18:42.020
  • get it out of your relationship with God.
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:44.040
  • Breakthrough comes from not a Word of God,
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:49.050
  • but a Word from God.
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:52.200
  • And, see, you're coming to church getting a lot of Word of
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:54.190
  • God, but you're not spending no time with God
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:57.020
  • to get something from him.
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:59.240
  • He can put all of that stuff together you learned, and if
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:03.050
  • you're talking--he loves to talk to you about the Word.
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:05.260
  • Go talk to him about the mechanics.
  • 00:19:05.270 --> 00:19:11.160
  • I apologize, I don't mean to be hollering tonight.
  • 00:19:11.170 --> 00:19:14.000
  • I don't even know I'm hollering and screaming,
  • 00:19:14.010 --> 00:19:15.210
  • but y'all understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:19:15.220 --> 00:19:17.060
  • Something changes in your whole life when you get
  • 00:19:17.070 --> 00:19:20.180
  • the very basics of Christianity.
  • 00:19:20.190 --> 00:19:22.250
  • And what is that? A personal relationship.
  • 00:19:22.260 --> 00:19:26.140
  • Knowing him.
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:31.130
  • Yes, people will look at you strange when you say,
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:33.070
  • "God said this to me."
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:34.210
  • "Oh, God speaks to you?"
  • 00:19:34.220 --> 00:19:36.030
  • "Yeah, Baby, you're doggone right.
  • 00:19:36.040 --> 00:19:37.180
  • I knows him, and you don't."
  • 00:19:37.190 --> 00:19:39.120
  • He'll speak to you, too.
  • 00:19:39.130 --> 00:19:40.220
  • In fact, he trying to speak to you,
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:42.020
  • but you're not in a--you're out of range.
  • 00:19:42.030 --> 00:19:47.210
  • You don't have a signal.
  • 00:19:47.220 --> 00:19:51.240
  • You're so cluttered with the mechanics and trying to be like
  • 00:19:51.250 --> 00:19:55.200
  • everybody, and you're comparing yourself amongst
  • 00:19:55.210 --> 00:19:58.030
  • yourself, which is not wise.
  • 00:19:58.040 --> 00:19:59.260
  • And then, comparing yourself amongst yourself
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:01.190
  • only produces self-righteousness.
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:08.050
  • Dude, I love this. I love my Father.
  • 00:20:08.060 --> 00:20:12.070
  • That's what keeps it real.
  • 00:20:12.080 --> 00:20:15.080
  • That's what keeps me up in the morning.
  • 00:20:15.090 --> 00:20:16.220
  • That's what--you know, I think I pretty much figured out how to
  • 00:20:16.230 --> 00:20:22.110
  • leave my body if I want to.
  • 00:20:22.120 --> 00:20:29.020
  • I don't wanna go.
  • 00:20:29.030 --> 00:20:31.130
  • Why?
  • 00:20:31.140 --> 00:20:35.050
  • Can't leave y'all yet.
  • 00:20:35.060 --> 00:20:36.150
  • You ain't ready yet, and God is so good,
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:41.060
  • and I wanna see an invasion of his glory hit this planet,
  • 00:20:41.070 --> 00:20:47.210
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:49.010
  • after the sons of God have been revealed, sons of God.
  • 00:20:49.020 --> 00:20:56.130
  • They know who they are.
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:59.200
  • They're no longer servants of God.
  • 00:20:59.210 --> 00:21:01.050
  • The law is for babies.
  • 00:21:01.060 --> 00:21:03.150
  • The law is for children.
  • 00:21:03.160 --> 00:21:08.010
  • This gospel of grace is for sons and daughters of God,
  • 00:21:08.020 --> 00:21:15.020
  • and you should be so consumed with this relationship that the
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:17.120
  • Spirit of God in you, you hear him saying,
  • 00:21:17.130 --> 00:21:19.150
  • "Cry Daddy, cry Daddy."
  • 00:21:19.160 --> 00:21:21.190
  • He's no longer master.
  • 00:21:21.200 --> 00:21:23.190
  • You're sons of God, joint heirs with Christ Jesus.
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:31.240
  • You remember when I told you about the little baby,
  • 00:21:31.250 --> 00:21:34.180
  • the little three-, four-year-old girl in her father's arms,
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:40.010
  • she's not in her father's arms practicing mechanics.
  • 00:21:40.020 --> 00:21:43.210
  • Her dad picks her up, and she says,
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:45.060
  • "I confess with my mouth and I believe in my heart that my dad
  • 00:21:45.070 --> 00:21:47.120
  • is not gonna drop me."
  • 00:21:47.130 --> 00:21:50.110
  • "Oh, I confess with my mouth and I believe in my heart
  • 00:21:50.120 --> 00:21:52.120
  • that my dad is not gonna drop me."
  • 00:21:52.130 --> 00:21:53.220
  • She's not saying that.
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:56.110
  • She's not up there sweating and working hard to try to make sure
  • 00:21:56.120 --> 00:22:00.190
  • her daddy don't drop her.
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:03.070
  • What is she doing?
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:04.170
  • She's resting in the love relationship that she has with
  • 00:22:04.180 --> 00:22:10.020
  • her father, and not one time does she have to say the right
  • 00:22:10.030 --> 00:22:14.120
  • thing and how many times she got to say it in order to stop
  • 00:22:14.130 --> 00:22:18.040
  • from--her from being dropped.
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:20.180
  • She has confidence and rest in the loving relationship
  • 00:22:20.190 --> 00:22:24.240
  • she has with her father.
  • 00:22:24.250 --> 00:22:32.150
  • You know, that's what he's really looking for us.
  • 00:22:32.160 --> 00:22:35.220
  • Every time something don't go your way or something go wrong,
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:38.010
  • you examine the mechanics.
  • 00:22:38.020 --> 00:22:42.270
  • You still don't see.
  • 00:22:42.280 --> 00:22:45.140
  • Do you really believe he loves you?
  • 00:22:45.150 --> 00:22:49.060
  • When you have this relationship with him, you will understand
  • 00:22:49.070 --> 00:22:52.200
  • that he loves you, and as a natural father does--I don't
  • 00:22:52.210 --> 00:23:01.060
  • teach my children how to say the thing the right way.
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:04.070
  • I don't teach 'em how to confess the right way.
  • 00:23:04.080 --> 00:23:06.010
  • I don't even teach 'em--I don't teach 'em how to do that.
  • 00:23:06.020 --> 00:23:09.080
  • I'm their father.
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:10.180
  • I provide for them without them having to do anything
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:14.040
  • to deserve me providing for them.
  • 00:23:14.050 --> 00:23:17.120
  • I provide for them.
  • 00:23:17.130 --> 00:23:18.240
  • We make it a major faith endeavor to get something from
  • 00:23:18.250 --> 00:23:24.120
  • God that he's gonna give to you by pure fact that he's your
  • 00:23:24.130 --> 00:23:28.290
  • Father and you rest in that loving relationship.
  • 00:23:29.000 --> 00:23:32.070
  • And you go so nuts with the mechanic trying to get him to do
  • 00:23:32.080 --> 00:23:35.070
  • something, and he says, "It's my pleasure to do this.
  • 00:23:35.080 --> 00:23:40.070
  • I'm your Father; and when you start realizing how much I love
  • 00:23:40.080 --> 00:23:44.060
  • you, not only am I gonna give you provisions, but I love
  • 00:23:44.070 --> 00:23:49.030
  • giving you surprises, and I love doing things
  • 00:23:49.040 --> 00:23:55.020
  • that you didn't expect."
  • 00:23:55.030 --> 00:23:57.290
  • And we--I've heard sermons like, "If you
  • 00:23:58.000 --> 00:23:59.090
  • don't expect it, you ain't gonna get it."
  • 00:23:59.100 --> 00:24:00.210
  • I probably preached one of them.
  • 00:24:00.220 --> 00:24:03.060
  • Here's what I expect from God: I expect love from him; and in
  • 00:24:03.070 --> 00:24:08.150
  • that love is all the byproducts, is all the byproducts.
  • 00:24:08.160 --> 00:24:14.270
  • God hasn't called you to sweat like sinners to try to get
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:17.160
  • something that his love has already decided to give you,
  • 00:24:17.170 --> 00:24:23.070
  • but it's just, to me, it doesn't seem like a lotta people are
  • 00:24:23.080 --> 00:24:27.000
  • focusing on the relationship.
  • 00:24:27.010 --> 00:24:30.160
  • It's like they're focusing more on the byproduct.
  • 00:24:30.170 --> 00:24:33.210
  • Something happens when you focus on a relationship and
  • 00:24:33.220 --> 00:24:35.280
  • stop focusing on the byproduct.
  • 00:24:35.290 --> 00:24:37.080
  • You know what happens?
  • 00:24:37.090 --> 00:24:38.180
  • Peace is multiplied, number one, and grace
  • 00:24:38.190 --> 00:24:41.270
  • is multiplied, number two.
  • 00:24:41.280 --> 00:24:47.080
  • Okay, so I don't know if this knowledge or this understanding
  • 00:24:47.090 --> 00:24:53.000
  • will fill up arenas around the world.
  • 00:24:53.010 --> 00:24:57.160
  • I don't care about that. Been there, done that.
  • 00:24:57.170 --> 00:25:01.050
  • My concern is that we can finally present to all creation
  • 00:25:01.060 --> 00:25:05.270
  • the manifestations of sons and daughters of God who know who
  • 00:25:05.280 --> 00:25:10.250
  • they are and who are no longer children under the law,
  • 00:25:10.260 --> 00:25:14.160
  • but they are now those who believe in the finished works of
  • 00:25:14.170 --> 00:25:17.190
  • Jesus and those who, out of their heart,
