  • You have a place at the table.
  • 00:00:04.200 --> 00:00:05.260
  • God has approved of you, so no one's disapproval of you should
  • 00:00:05.270 --> 00:00:08.110
  • hold you back.
  • 00:00:08.120 --> 00:00:09.210
  • Join my pastor, Gregory Dickow, as he ministers on this topic
  • 00:00:09.220 --> 00:00:12.080
  • today at Creflo and Taffi Dollar's Grace Life Conference
  • 00:00:12.090 --> 00:00:15.180
  • at World Changers Church in Atlanta.
  • 00:00:15.190 --> 00:00:17.080
  • Today really is your day to find out who you are in Christ.
  • 00:00:17.090 --> 00:00:21.060
  • 00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:25.120
  • 00:00:25.130 --> 00:00:31.110
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:36.250
  • CC BY ABERDEEN CAPTIONING 1-800-688-6621 WWW.ABERCAP.COM
  • 00:00:36.260 --> 00:00:41.250
  • Gregory Dickow: If I can just say this really quick, just to--
  • 00:00:41.260 --> 00:00:45.020
  • oh man, just to give you something that no one will ever
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:48.080
  • be able to take away from you.
  • 00:00:48.090 --> 00:00:51.190
  • I have studied this book about the curse in Deuteronomy 28,
  • 00:00:51.200 --> 00:00:55.150
  • and I find that the curse of the law, it actually affects
  • 00:00:55.160 --> 00:01:01.180
  • seven areas of our life, and everything in our life is
  • 00:01:02.190 --> 00:01:05.160
  • affected in one of these areas.
  • 00:01:05.170 --> 00:01:07.210
  • Everything in our life boils down to one of these categories
  • 00:01:07.220 --> 00:01:10.150
  • in our life, aside from salvation.
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:13.140
  • Salvation is the first and foremost thing that we
  • 00:01:13.150 --> 00:01:15.280
  • receive when Jesus dies on the cross, but by breaking
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:19.030
  • the curse or by becoming a curse for us, these are the things
  • 00:01:19.040 --> 00:01:23.170
  • that are primarily mentioned in Deuteronomy 28 that
  • 00:01:23.180 --> 00:01:26.170
  • constitute the curse that you are redeemed from.
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:29.120
  • So, these are the things that you need to say,
  • 00:01:29.130 --> 00:01:31.100
  • "Enough is enough.
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:33.110
  • Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."
  • 00:01:33.120 --> 00:01:34.210
  • Because what you do when you speak God's Word, a declaration
  • 00:01:34.220 --> 00:01:39.030
  • that Christ redeemed you from the curse of the law, you
  • 00:01:39.040 --> 00:01:41.270
  • are enforcing the victory that has already been paid for.
  • 00:01:41.280 --> 00:01:44.230
  • You are activating the victory that has already been given
  • 00:01:44.240 --> 00:01:47.200
  • to you.
  • 00:01:47.210 --> 00:01:49.010
  • You are activating it with the declaration of your
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:51.270
  • voice, with the declaration of that Word.
  • 00:01:51.280 --> 00:01:54.080
  • "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:56.050
  • So what are we saying?
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:57.160
  • We're redeemed and we're redeemed from specific things
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:01:59.130
  • here--here are the seven real quick.
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:02:01.040
  • Number one, poverty.
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:02.140
  • Not necessarily in this order.
  • 00:02:02.150 --> 00:02:03.250
  • Number one, poverty.
  • 00:02:03.260 --> 00:02:05.050
  • That means having a lack of anything, whether it's money,
  • 00:02:05.060 --> 00:02:07.040
  • whether it's time, whether it's friends, whether it's a lack
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:10.140
  • of anything, is a curse that we are redeemed from.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:14.120
  • Say, "Oh, but how do I break out of it?"
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:16.000
  • You are already out of it.
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:17.100
  • You need to educate yourself to understand that you're
  • 00:02:17.110 --> 00:02:19.220
  • out of it.
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:21.020
  • You need to convince yourself that you're out of it by knowing
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:23.200
  • that Christ redeemed you from it.
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:25.140
  • Nothing else has to be done.
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:27.190
  • All that's left for us to do is to let the redeemed
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:31.160
  • of the Lord say so.
  • 00:02:31.170 --> 00:02:34.250
  • And expect your freedom.
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:37.240
  • Walk in this thing.
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:39.050
  • Expect to walk in it, because it is done.
  • 00:02:39.060 --> 00:02:42.030
  • And when you're not-- when you're seeing some
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:43.240
  • of the effects, "Well, there's still poverty in my life," then
  • 00:02:43.250 --> 00:02:46.210
  • instead of thinking, "I gotta do this, and this, and this,
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:49.180
  • and this, and this, so I can get rid of poverty,"
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:50.290
  • save all you need.
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:53.090
  • Save all you can.
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:54.200
  • Obviously work hard, be diligent, do use all those
  • 00:02:54.210 --> 00:02:57.000
  • principles, but let me tell you something.
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:02:58.200
  • There are people that do all those things
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:00.020
  • and they're still poor.
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:02.010
  • There are people that do all those things
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:03.110
  • and they're still lacking.
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:04.230
  • There are people that do all those things, they may even have
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:06.030
  • money, but they run out of time, they run out of energy, they run
  • 00:03:06.040 --> 00:03:08.080
  • out of strength.
  • 00:03:08.090 --> 00:03:09.190
  • That's poverty.
  • 00:03:09.200 --> 00:03:10.290
  • Having a lack of anything is poverty, and we are redeemed
  • 00:03:11.000 --> 00:03:12.260
  • from it.
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:14.060
  • We have an abundance for every good thing because of the grace
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:16.040
  • of God.
  • 00:03:16.050 --> 00:03:17.140
  • Can you say amen today?
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:18.250
  • Number two, what are you redeemed from?
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:22.030
  • We are redeemed from emotional problems.
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:24.270
  • Deuteronomy 28:28, Deuteronomy 28:65 talks all about this.
  • 00:03:24.280 --> 00:03:29.250
  • Emotional issues, emotional problems, madness, astonishment,
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:34.260
  • fear, anxiety, all these things are in--are under the curse.
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:38.290
  • They are under the curse, people, and I get it.
  • 00:03:39.000 --> 00:03:42.050
  • We need to--I mean, I preach as much as anybody
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:46.140
  • on renewing the mind.
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:48.080
  • I preach fasting from wrong thinking, but the wrong thinking
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:51.070
  • we need to fast from is that we have to somehow do something
  • 00:03:51.080 --> 00:03:54.210
  • to be redeemed.
  • 00:03:54.220 --> 00:03:56.020
  • We need to start there.
  • 00:03:56.030 --> 00:03:57.120
  • We don't have to do anything to be redeemed.
  • 00:03:57.130 --> 00:03:58.230
  • We are redeemed from this stuff.
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:04:00.050
  • It is a curse to be worried.
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:01.150
  • It as a curse to be afraid.
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:02.260
  • It is a curse to be anxious.
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:04.060
  • And yes, there are things that stimulate those emotions,
  • 00:04:04.070 --> 00:04:06.290
  • but what I'm tryin' to tell you is you are not in bondage to any
  • 00:04:07.000 --> 00:04:09.250
  • of them.
  • 00:04:09.260 --> 00:04:11.060
  • You have been redeemed.
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:12.160
  • Come on, somebody's got to say amen to this.
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:13.270
  • We are redeemed from emotional problems.
  • 00:04:13.280 --> 00:04:15.220
  • "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."
  • 00:04:15.230 --> 00:04:17.200
  • Start speaking it, and then living it out, expecting that
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:21.100
  • you don't have to wake up every day living under these things.
  • 00:04:21.110 --> 00:04:24.140
  • Family problems.
  • 00:04:24.150 --> 00:04:26.030
  • Family problems is a third effect of the curse.
  • 00:04:26.040 --> 00:04:29.270
  • The curse covers family problems throughout Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:04:29.280 --> 00:04:35.030
  • It's about marriage, and children, and all these
  • 00:04:35.040 --> 00:04:37.060
  • things that would happen to your lives and to your families.
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:40.070
  • And boy, we don't have time to get into that, but that's
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:42.230
  • a curse and you're redeemed from it.
  • 00:04:42.240 --> 00:04:44.190
  • And you say, "Well, I really blew it with my family."
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:47.080
  • You know where you didn't blow it?
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:49.140
  • Was in accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior and your Lord,
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:53.030
  • because he redeemed you from it.
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:55.070
  • So, no matter how bad you blew it, you can claim deliverance
  • 00:04:55.080 --> 00:04:59.080
  • and freedom for your family so that they can walk in peace
  • 00:04:59.090 --> 00:05:02.220
  • and walk--every one of them can walk with God, and you can be
  • 00:05:02.230 --> 00:05:05.160
  • reconciled to them, and you can declare that you're free
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:08.270
  • from this curse, and you can just--you can say, "Well, no,
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:12.090
  • you know, that's my fault."
  • 00:05:12.100 --> 00:05:13.190
  • Yes, well everything you've done that's bad is your fault, so we
  • 00:05:13.200 --> 00:05:18.090
  • either are redeemed from it or we're not.
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:20.220
  • "Well, I gotta fix it all."
  • 00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:22.020
  • It's good that you realize that you have to change your pattern
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:25.190
  • of thinking and change your pattern of living, and you gotta
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:28.090
  • be humble.
  • 00:05:28.100 --> 00:05:29.200
  • And what I would do if you messed up your family life, go
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:31.190
  • to your kids.
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:33.000
  • If you screwed them up, go get on your knees and just tell 'em,
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:35.170
  • "I'm so sorry.
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:36.280
  • Please forgive me.
  • 00:05:36.290 --> 00:05:38.080
  • Would you give me another chance?"
  • 00:05:38.090 --> 00:05:39.190
  • If they're grown kids and you messed up, go to them.
  • 00:05:39.200 --> 00:05:41.130
  • Say, "Look I blew it.
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:42.230
  • I didn't understand how to raise you.
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:44.220
  • I didn't know how to raise myself.
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:46.120
  • I didn't know how to get right.
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:47.220
  • I just ask for your forgiveness."
  • 00:05:47.230 --> 00:05:49.070
  • And if you'll humbly do that and just expect that the power
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:53.280
  • of your deliverance from that curse of family problems will
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:58.120
  • go--will manifest through your humility and through simply
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:04.150
  • reaching out.
  • 00:06:04.160 --> 00:06:05.260
  • 'Cause some people think, "Well, that would never work, and I'll
  • 00:06:05.270 --> 00:06:07.080
  • never be reconciled, and that'll never happen, and my kids, you
  • 00:06:07.090 --> 00:06:10.200
  • know, they hate me," and whatever.
  • 00:06:10.210 --> 00:06:12.220
  • All of that is a curse and it doesn't have to remain in your
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:15.020
  • life another day of your life when you believe that you are
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:18.040
  • redeemed and you say that you're redeemed.
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:21.120
  • Sickness, disease, cancer, it all goes under the category
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:26.150
  • of sickness.
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:27.260
  • You're redeemed from it.
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.280
  • Christ redeemed us from that and that's all in Deuteronomy
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:32.230
  • 28, verse 22, 27, 35, and so many other places.
  • 00:06:32.240 --> 00:06:37.280
  • We're redeemed from it.
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:39.080
  • You say, "Yeah, but I was smoking, and you know?"
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:41.280
  • Yeah, you know what?
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:44.070
  • We're redeemed from it.
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.210
  • But look, you're redeemed from the curse.
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:48.050
  • And the guy that has gotten lung cancer from smoking for 40
  • 00:06:48.060 --> 00:06:53.230
  • years, he's got every right to be healed from it, not
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:57.210
  • because he quit smoking.
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:59.210
  • It'd probably be a good idea if he did, but him quitting smoking
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:04.270
  • isn't gonna heal him, but being redeemed from the curse will.
  • 00:07:04.280 --> 00:07:10.280
  • You understand what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:07:12.170 --> 00:07:15.010
  • Terrorism is in--is under the curse, that you'll be
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:19.270
  • terrorized, in Deuteronomy 28, verse 49 and 50.
  • 00:07:19.280 --> 00:07:23.220
  • It's in the Bible.
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:25.030
  • It's happening in our world today.
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:27.000
  • And you know what?
  • 00:07:27.010 --> 00:07:28.110
  • We're redeemed from it and we have every right to claim our
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:31.290
  • redemption from the curse of terrorism.
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:35.260
  • I don't have time to get into that, but number six
  • 00:07:35.270 --> 00:07:38.290
  • is failure.
  • 00:07:39.000 --> 00:07:40.150
  • We're redeemed from failure, in Deuteronomy 28, verse 20.
  • 00:07:40.160 --> 00:07:44.090
  • We're redeemed from being defeated in Deuteronomy 28,
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:47.200
  • verse 25.
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:49.000
  • Those are the curses in Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:50.260
  • Our redemption is in Christ Jesus.
  • 00:07:50.270 --> 00:07:53.030
  • Galatians 3:13, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:55.260
  • of the law."
  • 00:07:55.270 --> 00:07:57.070
  • And number seven is fear.
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:59.060
  • So, fear is under the curse and we're redeemed, and isn't it
  • 00:07:59.070 --> 00:08:04.000
  • interesting?
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:05.100
  • Perfect love casts out fear, and what's perfect love?
  • 00:08:05.110 --> 00:08:06.250
  • Perfect love is the cross.
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.110
  • Perfect love is demonstrate-- God is perfect love, but it's
  • 00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:10.160
  • demonstrated through the cross.
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:11.270
  • And at the cross, we're redeemed from all of these things because
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:15.260
  • Jesus became what we were so that we could become what he
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:18.280
  • was before he became what we were.
  • 00:08:18.290 --> 00:08:22.000
  • Jesus crucified delivers us from all of these things, but we
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:27.180
  • need to enforce the victory that is already ours by letting
  • 00:08:27.190 --> 00:08:32.140
  • the redeemed of the Lord say so.
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:34.220
  • It's exactly how you got saved.
  • 00:08:34.230 --> 00:08:36.140
  • Jesus--you confess Jesus as Lord, believe in your heart that
  • 00:08:36.150 --> 00:08:39.140
  • God raised him from the dead, and Romans 10:9 says
  • 00:08:39.150 --> 00:08:41.200
  • you were saved.
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:43.210
  • You didn't make Jesus Lord.
  • 00:08:43.220 --> 00:08:45.290
  • You didn't make him Lord.
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:48.010
  • He already was Lord.
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:50.060
  • You just came into agreement.
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:52.010
  • Alright, so Jesus crucified gives us our seat at the table.
  • 00:08:52.020 --> 00:08:58.010
  • And I said I'm gonna give you a summary.
  • 00:08:59.240 --> 00:09:01.270
  • Let me get back to that real quick, because first, being
  • 00:09:01.280 --> 00:09:06.230
  • seated means it's already done.
  • 00:09:06.240 --> 00:09:10.050
  • Secondly, being seated means rest.
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:13.130
  • We don't need to strive.
  • 00:09:13.140 --> 00:09:15.070
  • We can rest.
  • 00:09:15.080 --> 00:09:16.220
  • We can enjoy our lives.
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:19.000
  • We can have peace and rest.
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:20.290
  • The struggle is over, right?
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.240
  • We learned that the struggle is over.
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:24.240
  • We learned that seated means the struggle is over.
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:27.160
  • Jesus gets in your boat, and immediately everything
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:31.130
  • you've spent years straining at the oars, immediately when
  • 00:09:31.140 --> 00:09:35.150
  • Jesus gets in the boat, you have arrived.
  • 00:09:35.160 --> 00:09:37.140
  • Your struggle is over.
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:38.250
  • Your struggle is over, Abraham.
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:40.150
  • You don't have to try to go get with Hagar.
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:43.000
  • You don't have to try to do this, and try to do that,
  • 00:09:43.010 --> 00:09:45.080
  • and try to make promises to God.
  • 00:09:45.090 --> 00:09:47.030
  • Let me tell ya somethin' about Christianity.
  • 00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:48.290
  • Christianity is never, never has been, and never will be, and it
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:53.040
  • is not about the promises we make to God.
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:57.000
  • God, I'll never do this, God, I promise to do this.
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:58.290
  • God, I'll pray longer.
  • 00:09:59.000 --> 00:10:00.090
  • God, I'll do this.
  • 00:10:00.100 --> 00:10:01.200
  • Christianity is not the promises we make to him.
  • 00:10:01.210 --> 00:10:03.280
  • It's all about the promises that he made to us, and that he's
  • 00:10:03.290 --> 00:10:07.080
  • watching over his Word to fulfill those promises,
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:09.170
  • and the only reason he fulfills those promises are because
  • 00:10:09.180 --> 00:10:12.120
  • of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:10:12.130 --> 00:10:15.180
  • That's the Word of Christ.
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:18.090
  • You see, all the promises are yes and amen in him, and that's
  • 00:10:18.100 --> 00:10:22.110
  • why we need to preach him.
  • 00:10:22.120 --> 00:10:24.040
  • And that's why Paul said, "I determined to know nothing
  • 00:10:24.050 --> 00:10:25.270
  • among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified."
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:30.080
  • Why?
  • 00:10:30.090 --> 00:10:31.180
  • 'Cause, boy, we just got delivered from seven
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:33.010
  • of the major areas of our life that everything in our life is
  • 00:10:33.020 --> 00:10:35.100
  • covered by those seven areas, so I think that's why we need
  • 00:10:35.110 --> 00:10:38.080
  • to preach Christ crucified.
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:39.230
  • Why do we need to preach Christ crucified, Jesus Christ
  • 00:10:39.240 --> 00:10:42.040
  • and him crucified?
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:43.140
  • Because, man, that's what gives us a seat at the table.
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:45.030
  • That's what causes us to be kings and priests.
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:47.110
  • That's what causes us to be given the abundance of grace
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:50.100
  • and the gift of righteousness, and therefore reign in life.
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:56.110
  • Look, when Abraham strived and struggled, he went
  • 00:10:56.220 --> 00:11:01.130
  • through all this--these gyrations to get God to keep
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:05.160
  • the promise.
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:06.260
  • You know what Abraham and Sarah thought?
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:09.150
  • They thought the promise of Isaac was a challenge to them
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:15.150
  • to get him to do it, but what it really was was an announcement
  • 00:11:16.180 --> 00:11:21.120
  • to them that he was going to do it.
  • 00:11:21.130 --> 00:11:25.220
  • And that's every promise in the Bible.
  • 00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:29.240
  • I mean, the ones-- you know what I mean.
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:32.140
  • The promises of God that are in Christ, salvation, healing,
  • 00:11:32.150 --> 00:11:37.260
  • blessing, wisdom, all of it.
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:40.120
  • All of those promises are not a challenge to you to then have
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:44.190
  • to do something to get God to then keep his end
  • 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:48.160
  • of the bargain.
  • 00:11:48.170 --> 00:11:50.060
  • The bargain was made between the Father and the Son,
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:56.060
  • and we simply are the benefactors of their deal.
  • 00:11:56.280 --> 00:12:03.000
  • God and man have a covenant, but both of them have one
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:10.230
  • representative that causes the covenant to be established.
  • 00:12:11.130 --> 00:12:17.080
  • God sends Jesus to be his representative as God to make
  • 00:12:17.090 --> 00:12:23.090
  • a covenant, and God sends Jesus as a man to be man's
  • 00:12:25.280 --> 00:12:31.280
  • representative.
  • 00:12:34.020 --> 00:12:35.140
  • So, in Christ, in Jesus, is God and man, making in agreement
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:41.150
  • together to pay for everything, to redeem us from everything,
  • 00:12:44.220 --> 00:12:50.240
  • to bestow us with everything that is theirs.
  • 00:12:50.250 --> 00:12:53.270
  • "Child, all that is mine is thine," right?
  • 00:12:53.280 --> 00:12:55.240
  • The father said to the older son who was mad that the prodigal
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:59.030
  • son came home, and got a party, and got a fatted calf,
  • 00:12:59.040 --> 00:13:02.000
  • and the older son could've had anything anytime because
  • 00:13:02.010 --> 00:13:05.080
  • the father said, "Child, son, everything that
  • 00:13:05.090 --> 00:13:07.270
  • is mine is thine.
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:09.280
  • All that is mine is thine.
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.080
  • Everything I have is yours.
  • 00:13:11.090 --> 00:13:12.190
  • You just didn't know it.
  • 00:13:12.200 --> 00:13:14.030
  • You just didn't know it."
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:15.280
  • The younger son would have never had to leave his father had he
  • 00:13:15.290 --> 00:13:18.080
  • just known he was a son.
  • 00:13:18.090 --> 00:13:19.260
  • He saw himself as a slave.
  • 00:13:19.270 --> 00:13:21.210
  • He saw himself as a servant.
  • 00:13:21.220 --> 00:13:23.010
  • "I just got to work in my father's field."
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:24.170
  • He didn't know that he could have a party
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:25.220
  • with his friends anytime.
  • 00:13:25.230 --> 00:13:28.070
  • When we come to the--when we come to the promises of God,
  • 00:13:28.080 --> 00:13:34.000
  • they're not a challenge to you.
  • 00:13:34.010 --> 00:13:37.150
  • Here's a promise, now perform to obtain it.
  • 00:13:37.160 --> 00:13:41.250
  • They're an announcement.
  • 00:13:41.260 --> 00:13:43.060
  • Here's the promise.
  • 00:13:43.070 --> 00:13:45.020
  • It's fulfilled in Christ.
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:47.150
  • It is paid for in Christ by Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:51.280
  • Now, go ahead and just receive it like you received salvation.
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:55.100
  • I don't think anybody here struggling to stay saved.
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:13:59.120
  • You might be struggling to act saved, right?
  • 00:13:59.130 --> 00:14:03.190
  • But you are not struggling to stay saved.
  • 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:05.170
  • You're saved. It's done. Why?
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:09.180
  • 'Cause you freely received that promise.
  • 00:14:09.190 --> 00:14:10.280
  • So, just go ahead and do it that way with everything else.
  • 00:14:10.290 --> 00:14:15.010
  • All the sudden, why is it all of a sudden we shift the way we
  • 00:14:15.020 --> 00:14:17.250
  • receive from God?
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:19.050
  • Before we were saved, while we were enemies, we received
  • 00:14:19.060 --> 00:14:22.100
  • from God one way.
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:23.210
  • We said, "Jesus, I receive you," and guess what?
  • 00:14:23.220 --> 00:14:27.140
  • You were born again.
  • 00:14:27.150 --> 00:14:29.040
  • You were a lost sinner, a child of the devil, and you still were
  • 00:14:29.050 --> 00:14:33.000
  • capable of receiving from God.
  • 00:14:33.010 --> 00:14:36.000
  • And you received the gift of salvation while you were--
  • 00:14:36.010 --> 00:14:38.080
  • you didn't all the sudden, "Okay, I'm not a child
  • 00:14:38.090 --> 00:14:40.030
  • of the devil anymore.
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:41.130
  • I'm a child of God now.
  • 00:14:41.140 --> 00:14:42.240
  • Now Lord, save me."
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:44.040
  • No, you were a child of the devil and he saved you.
  • 00:14:44.050 --> 00:14:47.060
  • While you were lost while, you were a sinner, while you're
  • 00:14:47.070 --> 00:14:49.080
  • an enemy of God, he died for you.
  • 00:14:49.090 --> 00:14:51.160
  • You accepted that and you became a child of God.
  • 00:14:51.170 --> 00:14:55.180
  • Everybody's God's creation, but you don't go to heaven
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:58.150
  • because you're God's creation.
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:14:59.250
  • You go to Heaven 'cause you're God's child.
  • 00:14:59.260 --> 00:15:01.210
  • And you become a child by being born again.
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:04.160
  • Alright, everybody with me?
  • 00:15:04.170 --> 00:15:07.050
  • Listen, we gotta get ahold of this.
  • 00:15:07.060 --> 00:15:09.090
  • You are now a child of God.
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:10.290
  • And if you received the greatest gift of all, salvation
  • 00:15:11.000 --> 00:15:15.060
  • and a relationship with God without haven't done a thing
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:17.180
  • to get it, then why are we using some new method to receive
  • 00:15:17.190 --> 00:15:23.210
  • anything else from God?
  • 00:15:23.220 --> 00:15:25.190
  • It's the same way.
  • 00:15:25.200 --> 00:15:28.170
  • It's the same way.
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:30.260
  • It's the same for everything.
  • 00:15:30.270 --> 00:15:33.120
  • It's all done in Christ.
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:36.000
  • 2 Corinthians 1:20 says, "It's all done in Christ."
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:38.170
  • It's yes in Christ.
  • 00:15:38.180 --> 00:15:40.070
  • It's yes. It's yes.
  • 00:15:40.080 --> 00:15:43.070
  • God doesn't know how to say no.
  • 00:15:43.080 --> 00:15:44.180
  • He doesn't say no.
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:45.280
  • He says yes to all of his promises.
  • 00:15:45.290 --> 00:15:48.090
  • You say, "Well, what if I ask him for this?"
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:49.190
  • Well, is that a promise that is in Christ Jesus?
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:52.170
  • Then the answer is yes.
  • 00:15:52.180 --> 00:15:55.040
  • Listen, so seated means your struggle is over.
  • 00:15:55.050 --> 00:15:57.280
  • Seated means you've arrived.
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:16:00.250
  • Seated means approval and freedom from insecurity.
  • 00:16:00.260 --> 00:16:05.040
  • Now, I'm gonna drill down here and get into some other
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:07.060
  • "seateds" in a minute, but seated means
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:11.030
  • you are approved.
  • 00:16:11.040 --> 00:16:13.040
  • Everybody say, "I'm approved."
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:17.000
  • See, so many Christians are trying to improve their life
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:19.270
  • and God's trying to approve their life.
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:22.010
  • God wants you to know your life is approved by him in Christ.
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:26.000
  • You are approved.
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:27.220
  • Your actions and all your behaviors, those aren't
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:30.040
  • necessarily approved, but God doesn't relate to you based
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:34.000
  • on that.
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:35.110
  • He relates to you based on his Son.
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:36.210
  • He relates to you based on Jesus.
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:40.020
  • When he sees you, he sees the blood that was shed.
  • 00:16:40.030 --> 00:16:43.230
  • He doesn't see the old you.
  • 00:16:43.240 --> 00:16:46.090
  • That's passed away.
  • 00:16:46.100 --> 00:16:47.190
  • As far as east is from west, he's removed your transgressions
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:50.150
  • from you, the Old Testament prophecy of what
  • 00:16:50.160 --> 00:16:52.180
  • Jesus would fulfill.
  • 00:16:52.190 --> 00:16:54.180
  • And in the New Testament, Hebrews 8:12, "That your sins
  • 00:16:54.190 --> 00:16:58.080
  • and your iniquities, I will remember no more."
  • 00:16:58.090 --> 00:17:00.280
  • Seated means approval, freedom from insecurity.
  • 00:17:00.290 --> 00:17:04.090
  • Let me tell you something about approval.
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:05.260
  • Acts 26, verse 17, watch this.
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:08.200
  • So, Jesus is having a conversation with Paul when
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:14.210
  • he's converted, or Paul's actually, I think, referencing
  • 00:17:15.040 --> 00:17:18.030
  • his conversion that took place in Acts chapter 9.
  • 00:17:18.040 --> 00:17:20.140
  • And he's referencing the conversation he had
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:22.090
  • with Jesus about it, and Jesus says in verse 16, Jesus says,
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:27.040
  • "But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared unto
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:29.190
  • you for this purpose, to make you a witness--a minister
  • 00:17:29.200 --> 00:17:32.200
  • and a witness both of the things which you've seen, and those
  • 00:17:32.210 --> 00:17:35.140
  • things in which I will appear unto you."
  • 00:17:35.150 --> 00:17:37.140
  • Verse 17, and what will he appear doing to him?
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:40.290
  • "Delivering you from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:47.000
  • now I send you."
  • 00:17:47.120 --> 00:17:49.050
  • In other words, "I'm delivering you from the people so I can
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:55.060
  • deliver you to the people."
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:58.130
  • In other words, you are of no good to people when you are
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:18:02.260
  • in bondage to them and in need of their approval.
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:07.010
  • So, Jesus delivers us from needing people's approval
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:13.010
  • so that he can send us to minister to people.
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:16.250
  • You know, when you need somebody's approval, you are
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:20.090
  • of no good to them to be able to help them in any way.
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:25.220
  • You can't help them.
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:27.100
  • You need something from them, so you will constantly be--
  • 00:18:27.110 --> 00:18:32.200
  • whatever you want to try to say to help them is gonna be skewed
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:35.210
  • by your need for their affection, your need for their
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:39.060
  • acceptance, your need for their approval.
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:41.280
  • Insecurity starts with a self-conscious awareness
  • 00:18:41.290 --> 00:18:46.150
  • that there's a gap.
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:47.260
  • There's a gap.
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:49.060
  • Insecurity, the gap between who God says we are in Christ
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:53.290
  • and who we feel we are.
  • 00:18:54.000 --> 00:18:55.290
  • There's--that creates a gap.
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:57.130
  • The gap between what God says he's given to us in Christ
  • 00:18:57.140 --> 00:19:02.240
  • and what we actually have experienced of what we have in,
  • 00:19:02.250 --> 00:19:05.270
  • you know, in our lives manifest.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:08.200
  • The gap between who we want to be, all that God intended us
  • 00:19:08.210 --> 00:19:13.110
  • to be, and who it kinda looks like we are.
  • 00:19:13.120 --> 00:19:16.210
  • That creates a gap.
  • 00:19:16.220 --> 00:19:18.050
  • The gap between how I want others to see me
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:21.050
  • and how I see myself.
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:23.060
  • That creates a gap.
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:24.160
  • The gap between what we've dreamed, you know, the perfect
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:29.140
  • house from the "Good Housekeeping" magazine,
  • 00:19:29.150 --> 00:19:31.290
  • the perfect husband, the perfect wife, so the gap
  • 00:19:32.000 --> 00:19:38.000
  • between the dream husband and your husband.
  • 00:19:39.040 --> 00:19:45.040
  • It creates this insecurity.
  • 00:19:48.110 --> 00:19:50.130
  • Maybe the gaps like this, maybe it's not at all.
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:53.100
  • But what closes the gap is not you having a better husband.
  • 00:19:53.110 --> 00:19:57.150
  • What closes the gap is not somebody treating you better.
  • 00:19:57.160 --> 00:19:59.260
  • What closes the gap is you finding your security in Christ,
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:05.270
  • that I am secure in him, in his love, in his approval.
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:11.200
  • That's why I have spent years telling you guys, for years,
  • 00:20:11.210 --> 00:20:15.210
  • and years, and years-- Andrew, you've probably
  • 00:20:15.220 --> 00:20:17.150
  • preached this Scripture.
  • 00:20:17.160 --> 00:20:19.150
  • I know Joyce Meyer's preached this Scripture.
  • 00:20:19.160 --> 00:20:20.260
  • I've heard a lot of people preach this Scripture.
  • 00:20:20.270 --> 00:20:22.120
  • But I'm tellin' you, Mark 1:11 was one of the most liberating
  • 00:20:22.130 --> 00:20:28.120
  • verses that I ever read in my Bible, when it says Jesus came
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:33.010
  • up out of the waters of baptism and a voice from heaven came
  • 00:20:33.020 --> 00:20:37.140
  • and said, "You are my beloved Son."
  • 00:20:37.150 --> 00:20:40.170
  • The New Living Translation--
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:41.270
  • look at the New Living Translation.
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:43.280
  • It says, "You're my dearly loved Son and you bring me great joy."
  • 00:20:43.290 --> 00:20:48.280
  • And the Father spoke that over Jesus before Jesus preached
  • 00:20:48.290 --> 00:20:53.040
  • a sermon, before Jesus did a miracle, before Jesus healed
  • 00:20:53.050 --> 00:20:56.180
  • anybody, before Jesus fed the multitudes, before Jesus
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:58.290
  • died for our sins.
  • 00:20:59.000 --> 00:21:00.110
  • Before Jesus did anything, he had his Father's approval.
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:04.270
  • You need to know that you're in Christ.
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:08.060
  • So, before you do anything, you have your Father's approval.
  • 00:21:08.070 --> 00:21:13.080
  • You're his dearly loved son or daughter, and you bring him
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:18.030
  • great joy 'cause you have that much value to God.
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:22.280
  • You have God's seal of approval.
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:24.160
  • I think there's even a place in Scripture the Holy Spirit is
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:26.250
  • kinda referred to as the seal of God's inheritance, the seal
  • 00:21:26.260 --> 00:21:30.260
  • of God's approval, the seal of his affection.
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:33.240
  • The grace of God is the proof of God's outrageous, obsessive
  • 00:21:33.250 --> 00:21:39.250
  • love for you.
  • 00:21:41.250 --> 00:21:43.070
  • The great--this more than amazing grace that we sing
  • 00:21:43.080 --> 00:21:47.100
  • about, talk about, preach about, read about, is--it really is
  • 00:21:47.110 --> 00:21:53.110
  • what validates God's value for you that he would go
  • 00:21:53.200 --> 00:21:58.200
  • through all that.
  • 00:21:58.210 --> 00:22:01.230
  • Gregory Dickow: Wow, we are finishing up.
  • 00:22:06.010 --> 00:22:08.060
  • Maybe we'll keep talking about it, but we're finishing
  • 00:22:08.070 --> 00:22:10.260
  • up this amazing series, Jesus's invitation to you,
  • 00:22:10.270 --> 00:22:14.040
  • "Sit with Me."
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:15.230
  • "Sit with Me."
  • 00:22:15.260 --> 00:22:17.040
  • We're seated with Christ in heavenly places and he wants
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:20.000
  • you to take your seat.
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:21.170
  • And I'm telling you, I've got something very powerful that I
  • 00:22:21.180 --> 00:22:24.080
  • want to send you.
  • 00:22:24.090 --> 00:22:25.190
  • But before I share that, you know, there are people watching
  • 00:22:25.200 --> 00:22:28.230
  • right now that have never accepted Jesus Christ as their
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:30.290
  • Savior and Lord.
  • 00:22:31.000 --> 00:22:32.100
  • And before I'm a pastor, before I'm a preacher,
  • 00:22:32.110 --> 00:22:34.120
  • before I'm a minister on TV, before I'm anything, I'm
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:38.150
  • an evangelist like every Christian in the world today,
  • 00:22:38.160 --> 00:22:41.220
  • and we're out to win souls.
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:43.020
  • If you've never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord,
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:45.230
  • I want you to pray with me right now.
  • 00:22:45.240 --> 00:22:47.120
  • Just say this, "Heavenly Father," out loud, say that,
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:49.180
  • "Heavenly Father, I invite Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:54.210
  • I believe Jesus died for my sins and rose from the dead.
  • 00:22:54.220 --> 00:22:59.160
  • From this moment forward, I'm a child of God."
  • 00:22:59.170 --> 00:23:03.180
  • Well, if you prayed along with me, you are now
  • 00:23:03.190 --> 00:23:05.220
  • a child of God.
  • 00:23:05.230 --> 00:23:07.030
  • Welcome home. Welcome to the family.
  • 00:23:07.040 --> 00:23:09.240
  • And if you'll email me on the address on the screen,
  • 00:23:09.250 --> 00:23:12.090
  • I'll send you my free book, called,
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:13.120
  • "The Power of a New Life."
  • 00:23:13.130 --> 00:23:15.230
  • It'll take you through the next steps in this victorious walk
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:17.180
  • with God.
  • 00:23:17.190 --> 00:23:18.290
  • And for everyone watching now, you're redeemed.
  • 00:23:19.000 --> 00:23:22.130
  • And listen, I really want you to get this, Jesus became what
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:25.040
  • we were so that we could become what he was before he became
  • 00:23:25.050 --> 00:23:30.170
  • what we were, right?
  • 00:23:30.180 --> 00:23:31.270
  • I know that sounds like a tongue twister, but he delivered us
  • 00:23:31.280 --> 00:23:34.150
  • from the curse.
  • 00:23:34.160 --> 00:23:35.260
  • You're redeemed from the curse of sickness and disease.
  • 00:23:35.270 --> 00:23:38.200
  • You're redeemed from the curse of poverty.
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:40.290
  • You're redeemed from the curse of emotional problems.
  • 00:23:41.000 --> 00:23:43.150
  • You're redeemed from all these curses in the Bible.
