  • 00:00:23.170 --> 00:00:27.030
  • a righteous mess.
  • 00:00:27.040 --> 00:00:28.110

  • Gregory: Now most of us are not like David, most of us haven't
  • 00:00:53.100 --> 00:00:56.030
  • failed to that level, but even if you have, God still turned
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:00:59.260
  • David's life around.
  • 00:00:59.270 --> 00:01:01.080
  • Even if you have blown it beyond compare, God can still
  • 00:01:01.090 --> 00:01:05.170
  • pick up the pieces, and you can't unscramble the eggs,
  • 00:01:05.180 --> 00:01:09.200
  • but God can.
  • 00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:12.100
  • You can't unscramble your eggs, but God can.
  • 00:01:12.110 --> 00:01:15.070
  • That's how good God is.
  • 00:01:15.080 --> 00:01:17.220
  • That's how good God is.
  • 00:01:17.230 --> 00:01:19.280
  • No matter how far you've fallen, you have the right to get back
  • 00:01:19.290 --> 00:01:23.230
  • up, you have the right to get back up.
  • 00:01:23.240 --> 00:01:27.070
  • No matter how far, no matter how many times you've fallen.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:31.120
  • You know, Proverbs 24:16 says a righteous man falls seven
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:36.160
  • times, but he gets back up.
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:39.220
  • A righteous man may fall seven times.
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:42.020
  • Seven is the number of perfection.
  • 00:01:42.030 --> 00:01:44.120
  • That means you might have perfectly fall-- You might have
  • 00:01:44.130 --> 00:01:47.180
  • fallen completely.
  • 00:01:47.190 --> 00:01:49.020
  • It's the number of completion.
  • 00:01:49.030 --> 00:01:50.160
  • You might have fallen to the point where you have
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:53.240
  • completely fallen in every way.
  • 00:01:53.250 --> 00:01:57.020
  • And the Bible says a righteous man gets back up.
  • 00:01:57.030 --> 00:02:01.290
  • You have the right to get back up, and we need to know our
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:05.200
  • rights, because if you don't know your rights when you fall--
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:08.190
  • If you don't know your rights when you fall, you will stay
  • 00:02:08.200 --> 00:02:10.220
  • condemned.
  • 00:02:10.230 --> 00:02:12.060
  • If you don't know your rights when you Sin, if you don't know
  • 00:02:12.070 --> 00:02:15.000
  • your rights when you're a mess, if you don't know your rights
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:17.260
  • when you mess up, then you will probably make things worse.
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:22.030
  • That's why we have to know our rights.
  • 00:02:22.040 --> 00:02:25.290
  • You know, as an American citizen, if you are an American
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:28.150
  • citizen here, you have certain rights as an American citizen.
  • 00:02:28.160 --> 00:02:33.110
  • Now, you may not be exercising those rights.
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:35.220
  • For example, you have the right to vote.
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:38.010
  • You might not have voted, but you had the right to vote.
  • 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:42.250
  • So you can never say, "Well, I don't-- I just can't stand
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:47.120
  • what's going on in America today," but you didn't use your
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:50.030
  • right.
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:51.080
  • See, you can't say, "I just can't stand being sick all
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.290
  • the time."
  • 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:54.050
  • Well, you don't have to be a victim of sickness once you
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:56.090
  • know that you have the right to healing.
  • 00:02:56.100 --> 00:02:59.190
  • You see, when you know your rights, you're no longer
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:01.210
  • a victim.
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:02.260
  • When you know your rights, you no longer a complainer.
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:05.010
  • When you know your rights, you no longer a whiner.
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:07.060
  • When you know your rights, you're no longer-- You no longer
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:10.110
  • settle for a mediocre life.
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:11.250
  • When you know you're rights, you don't stay down when you've
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:14.010
  • fallen down.
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:20.020
  • You might have gone down, but you get to get up.
  • 00:03:20.240 --> 00:03:24.070
  • You have-- One of your rights is the right to get up.
  • 00:03:24.080 --> 00:03:27.080
  • Well, I'm a little ahead of myself, but that's good
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:29.270
  • because I get I'm going to catch up to myself in just a second
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:32.030
  • here.
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.030
  • Just hang in there.
  • 00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:34.050
  • Now, go over with me to John Chapter 1 verse 12.
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:37.020
  • Know your rights.
  • 00:03:37.030 --> 00:03:38.020
  • Everybody say know your rights.
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:40.090
  • See, there are certain rights that you have as an American.
  • 00:03:40.100 --> 00:03:44.030
  • There are certain rights you have if you're a Brit-- if
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:46.210
  • you're British, there's certain rights you have in your country,
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:49.000
  • where you're from.
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:50.220
  • And there are certain rights that we have as sons
  • 00:03:50.230 --> 00:03:55.000
  • and daughters of God.
  • 00:03:55.010 --> 00:03:56.150
  • So, he says, "But as many as received him, to them he gave
  • 00:03:56.160 --> 00:04:01.110
  • the right to become children of God, to those who believe
  • 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:06.090
  • in his name."
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:07.080
  • Now, who are these rights for?
  • 00:04:07.090 --> 00:04:08.240
  • Those who what?
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:11.230
  • To as many as received him, he gave them the right to become
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:16.040
  • children of God, to those who believe in his name.
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:18.230
  • What's his name?
  • 00:04:18.240 --> 00:04:20.100
  • Anybody believe in that name?
  • 00:04:20.110 --> 00:04:22.170
  • Anybody believe Jesus died for your sins and rose
  • 00:04:22.180 --> 00:04:24.240
  • from the dead?
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:26.010
  • Then you have been given the right to become a child
  • 00:04:26.020 --> 00:04:30.050
  • of God, and another translation of this verse says, "To as many
  • 00:04:30.060 --> 00:04:34.260
  • as received him, to them he gave them the rights of the children
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:39.290
  • of God."
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:40.290
  • He gave them the rights of the children of God.
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:42.290
  • So, children have the rights that their parents give them.
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:46.240
  • So in my in my family, my children have certain rights
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:51.280
  • that my neighbor's kids don't have from me.
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:55.210
  • And the neighbor's kids have certain right from their parents
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:05:00.220
  • that my kids don't have.
  • 00:05:00.230 --> 00:05:03.190
  • My kids have rights based on their father and their
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:08.000
  • mother, their parents.
  • 00:05:08.010 --> 00:05:09.060
  • And so we have rights as children of God, and once you
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:12.190
  • realize what God is like, once you realize that he gives us
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:16.250
  • rights as children of God, then you begin to not only expect
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:22.030
  • those things, but you begin to-- you begin to realize
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:26.240
  • or experience those things.
  • 00:05:26.250 --> 00:05:28.040
  • And too many Christians are living below their privileges,
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:31.120
  • they're living below their rights.
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:33.210
  • You have certain rights, and you should learn to exercise those
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:38.210
  • rights and expect those rights and live like those are your
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:42.250
  • rights, because that's what they are.
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:45.010
  • But it's our ignorance in knowing our rights and our
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:50.000
  • inability to learn how to exercise those rights that
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:54.200
  • are keeping us from experiencing all that our Heavenly Father
  • 00:05:54.210 --> 00:05:59.240
  • intended for us.
  • 00:05:59.250 --> 00:06:00.260
  • So, now where did we get these rights?
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:02.130
  • He said to as many as receive him, to them he gave the rights
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:05.250
  • to become children of God.
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:07.080
  • And if you go over to 2 Corinthians 5:21, we see how we
  • 00:06:07.090 --> 00:06:12.220
  • obtain these rights.
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:14.030
  • In 2 Corinthians 5:21, look at what he says.
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:17.060
  • It says, "For he who knew no sin-- he who knew no sin was
  • 00:06:17.070 --> 00:06:23.030
  • made to be sin for us."
  • 00:06:23.040 --> 00:06:26.050
  • Who is that who's he talking about there?
  • 00:06:26.060 --> 00:06:28.250
  • Jesus knew no-- Jesus never sinned.
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:32.050
  • So the father made Jesus something, he made him to be sin
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:38.060
  • for us so that we would be made something.
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:43.250
  • He was made something so that we would be made something.
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:46.270
  • This is called an exchange.
  • 00:06:46.280 --> 00:06:49.180
  • This is called an exchange.
  • 00:06:49.190 --> 00:06:51.200
  • There is an exchange that takes place.
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:53.100
  • It's not mixed, it is a complete exchange.
  • 00:06:53.110 --> 00:06:57.150
  • If you got a certain gift at Christmas that you didn't
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:07:01.180
  • like, somebody gave you something, and it didn't fit,
  • 00:07:01.190 --> 00:07:04.200
  • or it wasn't your style, you take it back to the store,
  • 00:07:04.210 --> 00:07:07.180
  • and what can-- What do you get to do?
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:09.060
  • You get to exchange it.
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:10.260
  • You don't keep both, you don't cut both in half and take half
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:14.000
  • of one and half of the other, you exchange it completely.
  • 00:07:14.010 --> 00:07:17.030
  • You have one or the other, and when it comes to what
  • 00:07:17.040 --> 00:07:20.000
  • the Scripture is talking about, you're either one or the other,
  • 00:07:20.010 --> 00:07:22.280
  • you're either a sinner, or you are the righteousness of God.
  • 00:07:22.290 --> 00:07:26.130
  • And we're all born as sinners, and that's why Jesus became sin
  • 00:07:26.140 --> 00:07:32.140
  • for us, so that we could become something brand new.
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:36.110
  • And what does he say we become?
  • 00:07:36.120 --> 00:07:38.050
  • We become the?
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:40.270
  • The righteousness of God.
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.140
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:07:42.150 --> 00:07:43.190
  • It means two things, quite simply: the righteousness of God
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:47.010
  • means we have the right.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:49.080
  • We are in right standing with God.
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:51.220
  • We're right with God.
  • 00:07:51.230 --> 00:07:53.170
  • And number two, it means we have the rights of God.
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:57.050
  • We have certain rights that he gives us, God-given rights,
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:08:01.100
  • and we are in right standing with God.
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:03.280
  • We are right with God.
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:05.040
  • So when a preacher says you better stop smoking and you
  • 00:08:05.050 --> 00:08:08.150
  • better stop cussing and you better stop drinking if you want
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:12.060
  • to be right with God, that sounds right, but it's not
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:15.260
  • right.
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:17.030
  • Because stopping those things or quitting those things are
  • 00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:21.010
  • definitely healthier for you, but those things do not make you
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:25.060
  • right with God.
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:26.230
  • Only one thing makes you right with God: Jesus became sin
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:32.050
  • so that you could become the righteousness of God.
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:34.230
  • That's it.
  • 00:08:34.240 --> 00:08:36.240
  • Nothing less and nothing more makes you righteous.
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:41.120
  • Now, religion has told us, "Well, if you do this better,
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:45.140
  • that makes you more righteous."
  • 00:08:45.150 --> 00:08:46.190
  • No, you cannot be more righteous than you are today.
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:49.200
  • You cannot be more of a sinner when you're born, and you can--
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:52.060
  • than what you are, you're-- We're all sinners, we've all
  • 00:08:52.070 --> 00:08:54.170
  • sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.070
  • We're all born into this world as sinners, and that's why we
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:59.020
  • need to be born again, and when you're born again, you are made
  • 00:08:59.030 --> 00:09:02.240
  • something new.
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:03.250
  • And what is that?
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:04.250
  • You become the what?
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:07.180
  • Righteousness of God.
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:08.180
  • You become the what?
  • 00:09:08.190 --> 00:09:10.180
  • I want everybody to say it.
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:11.280
  • It's all on the screen, it's an open book test.
  • 00:09:11.290 --> 00:09:14.140
  • When you get born again, Jesus takes your sin, he become sin
  • 00:09:14.150 --> 00:09:19.150
  • for us on the cross, and you become what?
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:23.220
  • The righteousness of God in him.
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:26.180
  • What do you become?
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:27.180
  • You become-- you come what?
  • 00:09:27.190 --> 00:09:29.280
  • The righteousness of God in him.
  • 00:09:29.290 --> 00:09:32.230
  • What if we really got ahold of this?
  • 00:09:32.240 --> 00:09:36.250
  • And if we-- just us-- knew our rights as children of God, we
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:41.000
  • would change this world.
  • 00:09:41.010 --> 00:09:44.040
  • 'Cause every time you prayed, you'd know what was gonna
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:47.020
  • happen.
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:48.110
  • Every time you gave, you'd know a harvest is coming.
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:52.080
  • Every time you forgave somebody, you'd know that you'll-- that
  • 00:09:52.090 --> 00:09:56.060
  • there's nothing holding you back from all the freedom that God
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:10:00.010
  • gave you and paid for you to have.
  • 00:10:00.020 --> 00:10:03.060
  • Every time that we ever gathered together, we would expect
  • 00:10:03.070 --> 00:10:07.000
  • miracles, we wouldn't be-- Like, we wouldn't be begging
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:10.160
  • and pleading and making deals with God.
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:13.190
  • He's chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:15.210
  • There is no deal you have to make with God.
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:19.240
  • We do not have to make promises to God to get God to keep his
  • 00:10:19.250 --> 00:10:23.250
  • promises to us.
  • 00:10:23.260 --> 00:10:25.210
  • God keeps his promises to us because he swore in his own
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:30.150
  • blood to keep his promise to you.
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:34.080
  • You're the righteousness of God.
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:35.230
  • That means you have rights.
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:36.250
  • Well, what rights do you have?
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:38.020
  • Let's go through a few of 'em.
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:39.080
  • I know we went through some of these last time, but we need
  • 00:10:39.090 --> 00:10:42.030
  • to hear this over and over again, because you
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.200
  • gotta expect these things to happen in your life.
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:45.190
  • You gotta believe for these things and expect these things
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:48.180
  • in your life and know that these are your rights, because look,
  • 00:10:48.190 --> 00:10:52.070
  • aren't you ready to give up your life of struggle?
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:55.030
  • Aren't you ready to give up a life of fretting
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:57.180
  • about the future and worrying about what's gonna happen
  • 00:10:57.190 --> 00:11:01.050
  • and living in the highs and lows and never feeling like you're
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:04.120
  • pleasing to the Lord and never feeling like you're approved
  • 00:11:04.130 --> 00:11:07.050
  • and never feeling like you've done enough and always feeling
  • 00:11:07.060 --> 00:11:10.040
  • like there's something missing?
  • 00:11:10.050 --> 00:11:11.130
  • Aren't you ready to give up that kind of life and start living
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:14.190
  • a life where you're having the joy and the time of your
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:17.080
  • life?
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:18.130
  • And when you pray, man, miracles happen, and when you speak
  • 00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:20.230
  • to mountains, they move, and when you lay hands
  • 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:23.060
  • on the sick, they recover, and when you command the devil
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:25.280
  • to go, he leaves.
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:27.030
  • He goes running.
  • 00:11:27.040 --> 00:11:28.110
  • Man, aren't you ready to give up-- aren't you ready to give
  • 00:11:28.120 --> 00:11:31.190
  • up that religious life where you've gotta make deals and make
  • 00:11:31.200 --> 00:11:34.130
  • arrangements with God, and God I'll treat this person
  • 00:11:34.140 --> 00:11:36.260
  • right if you do this for me.
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:38.030
  • God doesn't want you to treat somebody right so that God will
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:41.080
  • do something for you, because then you're treating a person as
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:44.210
  • the object of your selfishness.
  • 00:11:44.220 --> 00:11:46.250
  • Like I'll treat this person right, Lord, if you do this
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:49.110
  • for me.
  • 00:11:49.120 --> 00:11:50.190
  • God doesn't want you to treat people right to get him to do
  • 00:11:50.200 --> 00:11:52.250
  • something for you.
  • 00:11:52.260 --> 00:11:54.070
  • We should treat people right because we value them, because
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:58.150
  • we value ourselves, and therefore, we value them.
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:03.090
  • You know, why would anybody hurt somebody else?
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:07.110
  • Well, it's really simple.
  • 00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:08.200
  • They don't value that other person's life.
  • 00:12:08.210 --> 00:12:10.240
  • And why don't they value that other person's life?
  • 00:12:10.250 --> 00:12:13.020
  • 'Cause they really don't value their own.
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:16.000
  • 'Cause if you really value your life, if you really believe
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:19.160
  • in your worth, then you'll believe in other people's worth,
  • 00:12:19.170 --> 00:12:24.080
  • and then their life will not become minimized and something
  • 00:12:24.090 --> 00:12:30.090
  • that is easy to dismiss.
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:34.240
  • And you won't be so easily dismissive of yourself.
  • 00:12:34.250 --> 00:12:40.140
  • Oh, I don't deserve this.
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:42.040
  • Yeah, you're right.
  • 00:12:42.050 --> 00:12:43.040
  • We don't deserve anything.
  • 00:12:43.050 --> 00:12:44.040
  • That's why God gives us rights.
  • 00:12:44.050 --> 00:12:47.100
  • God gives you rights.
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:50.010
  • You have certain rights 'cause you-- You know what?
  • 00:12:50.020 --> 00:12:52.010
  • I have certain rights in this country 'cause I was born here.
  • 00:12:52.020 --> 00:12:55.040
  • I have certain rights in this country 'cause I'm a citizen.
  • 00:12:55.050 --> 00:12:58.130
  • And that's just an example.
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:01.020
  • And that's not perfect in any country, right?
  • 00:13:01.030 --> 00:13:04.030
  • There's many flaws to that, but in the kingdom of God, once
  • 00:13:04.040 --> 00:13:08.120
  • you're born again, you have rights in this kingdom, and it's
  • 00:13:08.130 --> 00:13:13.200
  • up to you to know those rights and to access those rights,
  • 00:13:13.210 --> 00:13:19.200
  • okay?
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:23.080
  • So we know what they are.
  • 00:13:23.090 --> 00:13:24.110
  • Psalm 5 verse 12.
  • 00:13:24.120 --> 00:13:26.260
  • Look at what it says, "For you, O Lord," will bless the who?
  • 00:13:26.270 --> 00:13:31.260
  • The righteous.
  • 00:13:31.270 --> 00:13:33.040
  • Who's the righteous?
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:35.020
  • Why are we the righteous?
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:37.070
  • See, you have to have this understanding in your mind
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:40.240
  • so that you can fight the condemnation when you blow
  • 00:13:40.250 --> 00:13:46.050
  • it.
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:47.050
  • Oh, I don't have the right.
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:48.050
  • I'm not righteous anymore.
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:49.050
  • Yes, you are.
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:50.050
  • You're still.
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:51.050
  • God made you that.
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:52.100
  • You don't become righteous because you do everything right,
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:54.050
  • you don't lose your righteousness 'cause you do
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:55.230
  • anything wrong, you've been made this, and no one can take it
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:14:00.090
  • from you.
  • 00:14:00.100 --> 00:14:01.150
  • So who will God bless?
  • 00:14:01.160 --> 00:14:04.100
  • The righteous, and what will he bless them with?
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:06.180
  • Favor will surround them like a shield.
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:09.200
  • Favor, favor, what is favor?
  • 00:14:09.210 --> 00:14:12.150
  • That's free gifts.
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:14.150
  • Favor is free.
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:16.250
  • Doors opening that no man can close.
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:20.160
  • Favor is God opening the door that no man can close.
  • 00:14:20.170 --> 00:14:23.140
  • Favor is you getting the job you didn't deserve.
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:26.000
  • Favor is you getting the advancement, you getting
  • 00:14:26.010 --> 00:14:27.190
  • the promotion.
  • 00:14:27.200 --> 00:14:28.190
  • You say, "Well, I didn't really deserve that."
  • 00:14:28.200 --> 00:14:29.270
  • Exactly, that's why it's favor.
  • 00:14:29.280 --> 00:14:32.050
  • When you say, well-- when you say to somebody, will you do me
  • 00:14:32.060 --> 00:14:34.040
  • a favor?
  • 00:14:34.050 --> 00:14:35.040
  • It's really not usually a favor.
  • 00:14:35.050 --> 00:14:36.110
  • You say will you do me a favor, 'cause if you do this for me,
  • 00:14:36.120 --> 00:14:38.090
  • I'll do this for you.
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:39.090
  • That's not a favor, that's a trade.
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:41.250
  • And you can trade anything you want with people, but you can't
  • 00:14:41.260 --> 00:14:44.150
  • trade with God.
  • 00:14:44.160 --> 00:14:46.230
  • You can only trade one thing: my sin for his righteousness.
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:52.240
  • And now you're cooking, okay?
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:15:00.130
  • Now you're cookin'.
  • 00:15:00.140 --> 00:15:01.130
  • Now you have rights.
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:02.150
  • What do you have the right to?
  • 00:15:02.160 --> 00:15:03.150
  • Favor.
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:04.230
  • You don't say, "Lord, if I do this and if I do this and if I
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:06.020
  • do this, can I get your favor?"
  • 00:15:06.030 --> 00:15:07.080
  • No, you can't get God's favor by doing anything.
  • 00:15:07.090 --> 00:15:09.250
  • You get God's favor by being righteous.
  • 00:15:09.260 --> 00:15:15.260
  • And you can't use that word in any other way than what it
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:21.020
  • means.
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:22.070
  • It means to be made right with God and to have the rights,
  • 00:15:22.080 --> 00:15:25.090
  • your God-given rights.
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:27.000
  • Favor is a God-given right, healing is a God-given right.
  • 00:15:27.010 --> 00:15:30.140
  • Look at Malachi chapter 4 verse 2, "But for you who fear My
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:34.200
  • name, the Sun of Righteousness," the son of what?
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:38.040
  • Righteousness, shall rise with what?
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:40.260
  • Healing in his wings.
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:42.190
  • So righteousness has healing with it.
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:46.220
  • So you say, "Oh, man, I really blew it.
  • 00:15:46.230 --> 00:15:49.220
  • I don't deserve to be healed.
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:51.080
  • I'm sick, it's that season, it's that time of the year I always
  • 00:15:51.090 --> 00:15:54.080
  • get the flu.
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:55.120
  • I always get this, my back always hurts, you know, my
  • 00:15:55.130 --> 00:15:58.160
  • parents had heart disease.
  • 00:15:58.170 --> 00:16:00.040
  • I'm going to get it.
  • 00:16:00.050 --> 00:16:01.150
  • My parents had diabetes, I'm gonna get it.
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:03.130
  • My parents had dementia, I'm gonna get it.
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:05.050
  • My grandparents had it--" Wait a minute.
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:09.010
  • Stop it.
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:11.060
  • And stop claiming your human rights as sons and daughters
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:15.110
  • of your parents, and start claiming your divine rights as
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:18.060
  • sons and daughters of God.
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:24.070
  • Healing is a right.
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:26.250
  • It's your right, it's a gift from God, but it's also your
  • 00:16:26.260 --> 00:16:29.240
  • right to receive that gift.
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:33.090
  • What if I blow it?
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:34.090
  • What if I make a mistake?
  • 00:16:34.100 --> 00:16:35.260
  • We all make mistakes, and we all blow it.
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:37.250
  • That doesn't make us less righteous.
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:40.150
  • God made us righteous.
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:42.050
  • He would have to make us unrighteous, and he's not doing
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:44.160
  • that, 'cause he already made the exchange.
  • 00:16:44.170 --> 00:16:49.190
  • Ooh, somebody's got to say amen here today.
  • 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:54.240
  • Listen, you have the right to being fearless.
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:57.170
  • You have the right to live a fearless life.
  • 00:16:57.180 --> 00:16:59.030
  • Look at Proverbs 28 verse 1.
  • 00:16:59.040 --> 00:17:01.280
  • The wicked flee when no one pursues them, but the righteous,
  • 00:17:01.290 --> 00:17:06.280
  • the who?
  • 00:17:06.290 --> 00:17:08.080
  • The righteous are what?
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:10.050
  • Bold as a lion.
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:12.040
  • You're bold, you have the right to be bold, you have the right
  • 00:17:12.050 --> 00:17:14.160
  • to be fearless, you have the right to to make the devil
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:17.270
  • flee.
  • 00:17:17.280 --> 00:17:19.050
  • The Bible says submit to God, resist the devil, and he will
  • 00:17:19.060 --> 00:17:21.060
  • flee.
  • 00:17:21.070 --> 00:17:22.070
  • You have this right for the wicked, the enemy,
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:25.200
  • the devil to flee from you without you having to chase
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:29.010
  • them.
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:30.050
  • Just be righteous.
  • 00:17:30.060 --> 00:17:32.230
  • You are righteous in Christ.
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:34.070
  • Just know that you're the righteousness of God
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:37.200
  • in Christ.
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:40.150
  • We need to wake up every day expecting victory.
  • 00:17:40.160 --> 00:17:44.010
  • Yeah, but I don't deserve it.
  • 00:17:44.020 --> 00:17:45.090
  • Exactly, you don't deserve it, but Jesus deserves it, and he
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:50.020
  • made an exchange with you and said, "Every right I have I
  • 00:17:50.030 --> 00:17:52.260
  • give to you.
  • 00:17:52.270 --> 00:17:54.120
  • And every wrong you have, I pay for it by becoming sin."
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:59.110
  • Jesus said that, Jesus did that.
  • 00:17:59.120 --> 00:18:02.230
  • Whoo!
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:03.240
  • Say I have the right.
  • 00:18:03.250 --> 00:18:05.220
  • Say I have the right to victory.
  • 00:18:05.230 --> 00:18:10.280
  • You have the right to peace.
  • 00:18:10.290 --> 00:18:14.260
  • Isaiah 32 verse 17, look at what it says.
  • 00:18:14.270 --> 00:18:17.010
  • Isaiah 32 verse 17.
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:20.080
  • You have the right to peace.
  • 00:18:20.090 --> 00:18:21.180
  • "The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:26.020
  • of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever."
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:28.210
  • Look at this in the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:30.120
  • I think it's pretty powerful in any version, but look
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:33.060
  • at the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:18:33.070 --> 00:18:34.210
  • He says, "And the effect of righteousness will be peace
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:39.170
  • internal and external, and the result of righteousness
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:45.100
  • will be quietness and confident trust forever."
  • 00:18:45.110 --> 00:18:51.100
  • Now look, this is your right.
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:58.150
  • How do we access our rights?
  • 00:18:59.010 --> 00:19:01.020
  • I could go on and on.
  • 00:19:01.030 --> 00:19:02.060
  • There's so many more of our rights.
  • 00:19:02.070 --> 00:19:04.070
  • You can look-- anytime you find the word righteous in the Bible,
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:07.040
  • that's your right in Christ.
  • 00:19:07.050 --> 00:19:09.210
  • But how do we access it?
  • 00:19:09.220 --> 00:19:11.140
  • Well, simply.
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:13.170
  • we receive it, right?
  • 00:19:13.180 --> 00:19:16.290
  • We receive it through the abundance of grace,
  • 00:19:17.000 --> 00:19:18.240
  • Romans 5:17, through the abundance of grace
  • 00:19:18.250 --> 00:19:20.210
  • and the gift of righteousness.
  • 00:19:20.220 --> 00:19:22.010
  • We reign in life.
  • 00:19:22.020 --> 00:19:23.190
  • So we receive it, those who receive, those who receive
  • 00:19:23.200 --> 00:19:28.180
  • the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness.
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:30.220
  • Those who receive it.
  • 00:19:30.230 --> 00:19:32.180
  • So number one, we simply receive it.
  • 00:19:32.190 --> 00:19:34.100
  • How do you receive anything from God?
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:36.110
  • By faith.
  • 00:19:36.120 --> 00:19:38.160
  • I receive it by faith.
  • 00:19:38.170 --> 00:19:39.260
  • I just accept it because God said it.
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:45.270
  • Number two, we believe.
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:48.230
  • We believe.
  • 00:19:48.240 --> 00:19:49.230
  • Look at what it says in Romans 10 verse 9.
  • 00:19:49.240 --> 00:19:52.170
  • "If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:56.280
  • in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you'll be
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:19:58.190
  • saved."
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:19:59.190
  • Verse 10, look at this.
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:01.000
  • He says, "For with the heart man believes unto righteousness,
  • 00:20:01.010 --> 00:20:06.210
  • and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
  • 00:20:06.220 --> 00:20:10.010
  • So how do we access this righteousness?
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:15.120
  • Believe.
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:16.290
  • Believe and realize this is what spiritual warfare is, it's
  • 00:20:17.000 --> 00:20:20.140
  • to get you to stop believing this.
  • 00:20:20.150 --> 00:20:23.240
  • It's to get you to stop believing this.
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:25.260
  • And the third thing we do-- so number one, we receive it.
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:29.100
  • Number two, we believe it, and don't let any devil talk you
  • 00:20:29.110 --> 00:20:33.270
  • out of it.
  • 00:20:33.280 --> 00:20:35.040
  • Number one, receive it, number two, believe it, and number
  • 00:20:35.050 --> 00:20:38.010
  • three, speak it.
  • 00:20:38.020 --> 00:20:40.110
  • Look at what he says in Romans 10 verse 6.
  • 00:20:40.120 --> 00:20:42.180
  • Go back a few verses, Romans chapter 10 verse 6, he said,
  • 00:20:42.190 --> 00:20:47.010
  • "And this righteousness of faith speaks."
  • 00:20:47.020 --> 00:20:51.070
  • The righteousness of faith speaks, it speaks, so we need
  • 00:20:51.080 --> 00:20:55.190
  • to say it, we need to declare I am the righteousness of God,
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:21:00.090
  • therefore, I exercise my right to healing, I exercise my right
  • 00:21:00.100 --> 00:21:04.150
  • to blessing, I exercise my right to the favor of God, I wake
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:07.270
  • up expecting it, therefore, I say it, I decree a thing,
  • 00:21:07.280 --> 00:21:11.100
  • and it is so.
  • 00:21:11.110 --> 00:21:14.120
  • [music]
  • 00:21:14.130 --> 00:21:16.220
  • Gregory: Well, last week I talked to you
  • 00:21:18.210 --> 00:21:20.160
  • about understanding your righteousness and today
  • 00:21:20.170 --> 00:21:22.100
  • about knowing your rights.
  • 00:21:22.110 --> 00:21:25.040
  • Boy, this is the one-two knock-out punch to the devil.
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:28.280
  • He'll definitely leave you alone when you get ahold of this,
  • 00:21:28.290 --> 00:21:31.130
  • and everything is gonna be all right.
  • 00:21:31.140 --> 00:21:33.150
  • Believe me when I tell you this.
  • 00:21:33.160 --> 00:21:35.080
  • You know, we've received it, we've believed it, now let's
  • 00:21:35.090 --> 00:21:37.190
  • speak it, let's declare it.
  • 00:21:37.200 --> 00:21:39.080
  • Whether you're watching on your couch or laying in your bed,
  • 00:21:39.090 --> 00:21:42.040
  • or whether you're working out or at the office or wherever
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:44.270
  • you are, in your car, if you're in a place where you can do this
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:47.140
  • with me, say this out loud after me.
  • 00:21:47.150 --> 00:21:49.210
  • Say: I receive it.
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:51.010
  • I receive the gift of righteousness.
  • 00:21:51.020 --> 00:21:53.240
  • I receive the power of God.
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:56.150
  • No one can take it from me, say that.
  • 00:21:56.160 --> 00:21:58.020
  • No one can take it from me.
  • 00:21:58.030 --> 00:21:59.110
  • I can't lose it, the devil can't steal it from me, God has made
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:04.010
  • me the righteousness of God.
  • 00:22:04.020 --> 00:22:06.070
  • When Jesus became sin on the cross, I am now
  • 00:22:06.080 --> 00:22:10.130
  • the righteousness of God.
  • 00:22:10.140 --> 00:22:12.070
  • I declare it.
  • 00:22:12.080 --> 00:22:13.090
  • Say it, I declare it with my mouth, and I expect
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:16.260
  • the blessings of righteousness.
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:19.090
  • I expect the rights, my rights, and the favor of God to show
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:25.040
  • up in my life, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:22:25.050 --> 00:22:27.110
  • Say this out loud.
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:28.110
  • Say healing is my right, deliverance is my right,
  • 00:22:28.120 --> 00:22:31.160
  • blessing and prosperity is my right, victory is my right
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:35.230
  • in Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:22:35.240 --> 00:22:39.070
  • Listen, now the result, the force of righteousness,
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:44.010
  • Isaiah says, is internal and external peace, quietness,
  • 00:22:44.020 --> 00:22:49.080
  • and confident trust forever.
  • 00:22:49.090 --> 00:22:52.180
  • Your struggle is over.
  • 00:22:52.190 --> 00:22:55.030
  • You're gonna have peace like flowing like a river, your
  • 00:22:55.040 --> 00:22:57.140
  • future of worrying has come to an end, and it's time
  • 00:22:57.150 --> 00:23:02.010
  • to experience the emotional peace that God intended you for.
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:06.090
  • Remember now, God's word says, in Luke 12, he chose gladly
  • 00:23:06.100 --> 00:23:11.210
  • to give you the kingdom, the kingdom of God,
  • 00:23:11.220 --> 00:23:14.130
  • the righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:23:14.140 --> 00:23:16.150
  • It's the great exchange, so don't settle any longer.
  • 00:23:16.160 --> 00:23:20.130
  • Exercise your rights as the righteousness of God,
  • 00:23:20.140 --> 00:23:23.070
  • and everything is going to be all right.
