  • Gregory: Welcome to "The Power to Change
  • 00:00:54.280 --> 00:00:56.140
  • Today", I'm Greg Dickow.
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:57.240
  • And you remember as a child or a parent ever being on a family
  • 00:00:57.250 --> 00:01:01.190
  • trip, and inevitably, the famous question comes up,
  • 00:01:01.200 --> 00:01:04.260
  • "Are we there yet?"
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:07.130
  • Well, you know, many of us watching today might feel like
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:09.250
  • that right now in our walk with God.
  • 00:01:09.260 --> 00:01:11.230
  • Maybe you're wondering, "When am I gonna get there?
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:15.010
  • When am I gonna get past this guilt or this sickness?"
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:18.170
  • Or, "When am I gonna get past living from
  • 00:01:18.180 --> 00:01:21.060
  • paycheck to paycheck?
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:22.160
  • When am I gonna arrive at the destination that
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:25.130
  • God created me for?"
  • 00:01:25.140 --> 00:01:26.230
  • Well, that's why I came to you today.
  • 00:01:26.240 --> 00:01:29.160
  • That's why I put this program together.
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:31.120
  • Today I want you to know your struggle is over.
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:34.250
  • And in the next 26 or 27 minutes, I'm gonna help you
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:37.120
  • discover the simple keys, straight from God's Word,
  • 00:01:37.130 --> 00:01:41.200
  • to end your season of waiting and struggling.
  • 00:01:41.210 --> 00:01:46.070
  • You're about to shout when you see how easy it is to get to the
  • 00:01:46.080 --> 00:01:50.010
  • other side of whatever you're on right now.
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:52.240
  • So I know you're ready.
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:54.040
  • So let's head into the family room of Life Changers Church
  • 00:01:54.050 --> 00:01:57.140
  • and get into the teaching today, "Are We There Yet?"
  • 00:01:57.150 --> 00:02:01.130
  • And when we're done, the answer is gonna be
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:04.030
  • easier than you think.
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:05.210
  • Check it out.
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:07.220
  • Gregory: John 6, verse 17, I want you to see this.
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:12.200
  • John chapter 6, verse 17, and, you know,
  • 00:02:12.210 --> 00:02:17.220
  • the disciples got in a boat here in John chapter 6.
  • 00:02:17.230 --> 00:02:22.290
  • And it says that: "When evening had come,
  • 00:02:23.000 --> 00:02:26.130
  • his disciples went down to the sea."
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:29.000
  • And it says in verse 17: "They entered into the boat,
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:33.100
  • and they went over the sea toward Capernaum."
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:35.290
  • So they're heading towards Capernaum.
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:37.090
  • That's their destination.
  • 00:02:37.100 --> 00:02:38.240
  • But they have to go over the sea to get there.
  • 00:02:38.250 --> 00:02:41.280
  • "And it was already dark, and Jesus had not yet come."
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:45.280
  • Has anyone ever felt like that?
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:48.050
  • It's dark, and God hasn't seemed to show up yet
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:53.060
  • in your life or in your situation.
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:54.220
  • Has anybody ever been on this journey as a Christian,
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:58.070
  • or on this journey of life, and you're trying to get there,
  • 00:02:58.080 --> 00:03:04.070
  • but its dark, and Jesus hasn't shown up yet?
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:09.020
  • It's dark.
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:10.200
  • The doctor has given you a bad report.
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:13.150
  • That's darkness.
  • 00:03:13.160 --> 00:03:14.280
  • And God hasn't shown up with your healing yet.
  • 00:03:14.290 --> 00:03:17.190
  • Your finances are a mess. That means it's dark.
  • 00:03:17.200 --> 00:03:21.170
  • And the money hasn't shown up in your account yet.
  • 00:03:21.180 --> 00:03:24.180
  • Your marriage is struggling.
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:27.210
  • One of your children are walking away from God.
  • 00:03:27.220 --> 00:03:31.060
  • And that's a dark moment. That's a dark time.
  • 00:03:31.070 --> 00:03:35.110
  • It says, "It was already dark, and Jesus had
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:38.100
  • not yet come to them."
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:39.200
  • I think we can all relate to how it gets dark sometimes,
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:43.150
  • and we don't see God.
  • 00:03:43.160 --> 00:03:45.270
  • It gets dark sometimes, and we don't see the light.
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:50.010
  • But I've got good news for ya today,
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:52.090
  • that the Bible says, "To the Lord,
  • 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:55.110
  • there is no difference between dark and light.
  • 00:03:55.120 --> 00:03:59.040
  • Darkness and light are the same to him."
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:01.230
  • In other words, it may look dark,
  • 00:04:01.240 --> 00:04:04.010
  • but he doesn't see the darkness.
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:06.100
  • He sees the light. He is the light.
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:08.160
  • And when we realize that God's about to reveal his amazing
  • 00:04:08.170 --> 00:04:13.080
  • grace to his disciple here, you will then be able to understand
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:18.070
  • how to experience God's grace in your own life,
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:22.070
  • God's favor, God's riches at Christ's expense.
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:27.250
  • G-R-A-C-E, "God's Riches at Christ's Expense."
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:32.170
  • Would you mind sayin' that with me?
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:33.270
  • Just say that out loud.
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.070
  • Say, "God's riches at Christ's expense."
  • 00:04:35.080 --> 00:04:39.290
  • Jesus paid on the cross for our sin so that we would be made the
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:45.060
  • righteousness of God.
  • 00:04:45.070 --> 00:04:46.220
  • He took our sickness and bore our infirmities, and bore our
  • 00:04:46.230 --> 00:04:51.060
  • sicknesses on the cross so that by his stripes we are healed.
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:56.260
  • "He became a curse for us, for cursed is one that hangs on a
  • 00:04:56.270 --> 00:05:01.070
  • tree, so that the blessing of Abraham would come upon us."
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:05.290
  • Even though we may not be Abraham's physical seed,
  • 00:05:06.000 --> 00:05:10.060
  • we are his spiritual seed because we are in Christ.
  • 00:05:10.070 --> 00:05:13.110
  • So, he became sin so that we could become righteous.
  • 00:05:13.120 --> 00:05:17.120
  • He became, he took our sickness upon himself so
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:20.200
  • that we could be healed.
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:22.000
  • He took the curse, or he became a curse for us,
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:24.290
  • so that we could be blessed.
  • 00:05:25.000 --> 00:05:26.130
  • That's God's riches at Christ's expense, amen.
  • 00:05:26.140 --> 00:05:32.120
  • That's grace. That's grace.
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:35.190
  • Without grace, we're trying to obtain God's riches
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:41.040
  • at our own expense.
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:42.210
  • Or we're trying to obtain God's riches
  • 00:05:42.220 --> 00:05:44.270
  • at somebody else's expense.
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:46.240
  • But grace is us receiving God's riches at Christ's expense.
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:52.140
  • Not at our expense, and not at anybody else's expense.
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:56.070
  • And that sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
  • 00:05:56.080 --> 00:05:58.140
  • How 'bout you?
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:06:00.260
  • If you study it, and when I first learned this verse,
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:03.280
  • I found, I looked in the maps in the back of the Bible.
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:07.140
  • Does anybody ever have, does anybody even have a Bible with
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:09.170
  • maps in 'em still in the back?
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:11.280
  • Does anybody have a Bible? In the back of a Bible are maps.
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:19.040
  • And if you notice, if you trace, and in one of those maps is a
  • 00:06:19.050 --> 00:06:23.220
  • little, what do you call it when they have the length,
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:26.210
  • or the mileage, and they have the little,
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:29.090
  • the key, or whatever it is, or the--?
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.250
  • What is it? The legend?
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:34.110
  • Scale, thank you.
  • 00:06:34.120 --> 00:06:36.180
  • I'm sorry for speakin' in tongues here.
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:37.290
  • Thank you for the interpretation.
  • 00:06:38.000 --> 00:06:40.170
  • But there's a scale that shows this is how far
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:44.220
  • 1 inch equals so many miles.
  • 00:06:44.230 --> 00:06:46.210
  • Well, if you use the scale, and I did this, I measured how
  • 00:06:46.220 --> 00:06:50.200
  • far was it from one end of the lake to the other.
  • 00:06:50.210 --> 00:06:53.080
  • It's approximately 7 miles.
  • 00:06:53.090 --> 00:06:55.260
  • And the Bible says here, "They had rowed 3 to 4 miles."
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:59.250
  • So they had gotten halfway, but then it says,
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:02.140
  • "Jesus saw them and they were sinking."
  • 00:07:02.150 --> 00:07:04.230
  • Jesus saw them and they were about to drown.
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:06.170
  • Jesus saw them and they're straining.
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:07.270
  • They're struggling.
  • 00:07:07.280 --> 00:07:09.070
  • They're not gonna make it to the other side.
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:11.110
  • But when Jesus sees them in verse 21,
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:15.140
  • it says: "When they received him willingly into the boat,
  • 00:07:15.150 --> 00:07:19.010
  • immediately the boat was at the land where they were going."
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:23.270
  • And the thing about God's grace is God's grace doesn't take us
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:27.040
  • back to where we started from.
  • 00:07:27.050 --> 00:07:28.270
  • God's grace always gets us where we're goin'.
  • 00:07:28.280 --> 00:07:31.170
  • And God's grace doesn't, God's grace does not employ,
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:36.250
  • listen, God's grace does not employ our strongest efforts
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:40.270
  • to get to the other side.
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.070
  • God's grace employs God's presence to get
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:45.080
  • us to the other side.
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:46.180
  • Because they had rowed for 6 to 9 hours,
  • 00:07:46.190 --> 00:07:49.060
  • and they could only get halfway across.
  • 00:07:49.070 --> 00:07:51.030
  • But when Jesus came into their boat,
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:53.030
  • when they willingly received him into the boat,
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:55.280
  • immediately the boat was at the land where they were goin'.
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:59.160
  • Listen, it doesn't say, "Six to nine hours later."
  • 00:07:59.170 --> 00:08:04.090
  • It doesn't say, "Six to nine minutes later."
  • 00:08:04.100 --> 00:08:07.100
  • It doesn't say, "Six to nine days later."
  • 00:08:07.110 --> 00:08:10.050
  • It doesn't say, "Six to nine seconds later."
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:12.220
  • It says, "When they willingly received him into the boat,
  • 00:08:12.230 --> 00:08:17.180
  • immediately the boat was, boom, at the land
  • 00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:20.260
  • where they were going."
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:22.060
  • This is the grace of God.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:23.160
  • You can struggle with your oars for 9 hours.
  • 00:08:23.170 --> 00:08:26.200
  • You can struggle with your oars all day and all night.
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:29.060
  • You can strain and struggle, and try to keep the laws,
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:31.250
  • and keep the commandments, and do everything right,
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:33.170
  • and cross all your T's, and dot all your I's.
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:35.080
  • But until you willingly receive him into you boat,
  • 00:08:35.090 --> 00:08:37.250
  • you're not gonna get to the place where you're goin.
  • 00:08:37.260 --> 00:08:40.160
  • But there's a reason why he gives us this word
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:44.150
  • "immediately," because we've been
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:47.210
  • sayin', "Oh God, heal me.
  • 00:08:47.220 --> 00:08:49.010
  • Oh God, heal me."
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:50.120
  • But it's if you will willingly receive him, you will realize
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:54.160
  • you are immediately healed by his stripes.
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:08:57.230
  • If you keep sayin', "God, one day, will you bless me?
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:09:00.110
  • Will you bless--?"
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:01.210
  • But when you realize he became a curse so that you could be
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:04.180
  • blessed, you will immediately be at that place of blessing.
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:07.260
  • You've been strugglin' to get that healing.
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:10.170
  • You've been strugglin' to get that blessing.
  • 00:09:10.180 --> 00:09:12.120
  • You've been strugglin' to get that peace.
  • 00:09:12.130 --> 00:09:14.040
  • You've been strugglin' to get delivered from that addiction.
  • 00:09:14.050 --> 00:09:17.260
  • But when you receive him willingly, you're there.
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:23.110
  • Through the abundance of grace--those, it says,
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:25.240
  • in Romans 5:17: "Those who receive the abundance of grace
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:29.180
  • and the gift of righteousness, they reign in life."
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:33.130
  • We reign in life when we receive the abundance of grace.
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:38.190
  • Everybody say, "Receive."
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:41.140
  • Man, listen, you're gonna have to wake up and realize
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:46.080
  • you are the wide receiver.
  • 00:09:46.090 --> 00:09:47.180
  • You're not the quarterback. Jesus is the quarterback.
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:49.290
  • You're the receiver.
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:51.090
  • Just stay open and you will receive.
  • 00:09:51.100 --> 00:09:53.230
  • Just stay open. He'll hit ya.
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:55.200
  • Just stay open. He'll see ya.
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:57.100
  • Just stay open. He knows the target.
  • 00:09:57.110 --> 00:10:00.180
  • He will get the ball to you. Just willingly receive.
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:06.100
  • This is what so many Christians don't get.
  • 00:10:06.110 --> 00:10:09.020
  • They're tryin' to get God to do it.
  • 00:10:09.030 --> 00:10:10.160
  • "Do it, God. Come on, God."
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:13.060
  • This is the picture.
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:14.240
  • Let me help ya with somethin' here.
  • 00:10:14.250 --> 00:10:18.230
  • This way of grace is explained in the story of Abraham,
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:22.120
  • Isaac, and Ishmael.
  • 00:10:22.130 --> 00:10:23.280
  • God made a promise to Abraham and Sarah that he was gonna give
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:28.090
  • them a son and he was gonna be the father of a
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:30.270
  • multitude of nations.
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:32.100
  • And they could hardly take it.
  • 00:10:32.110 --> 00:10:34.090
  • They were waiting and waiting, rowing and rowing.
  • 00:10:34.100 --> 00:10:38.030
  • The Bible says in Genesis chapter 17, verse 17, it says
  • 00:10:38.040 --> 00:10:43.260
  • that: "Abraham laughed when God said,
  • 00:10:43.270 --> 00:10:46.260
  • 'I'm gonna give you a son.'"
  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:48.080
  • He laughed. Twenty-five years had gone by.
  • 00:10:48.090 --> 00:10:51.290
  • Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said, "Shall a
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:55.030
  • child be born to a man who is 100 years old?
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:57.240
  • And shall Sarah, who is 90 years old, bear a child?"
  • 00:10:57.250 --> 00:11:01.040
  • He's laughing at God's promise because he can't fathom that God
  • 00:11:01.050 --> 00:11:08.200
  • could do something beyond what he can ask or think.
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:12.260
  • Twenty-five years have gone by since he first heard the promise
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:15.090
  • when he was seventy-five.
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:16.190
  • Well, now he's 100 years old so, he's technically 99,
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:21.090
  • but 24 years, 25 years, have gone by.
  • 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:24.180
  • Have you believed God for something for 25 years,
  • 00:11:24.190 --> 00:11:27.070
  • and you're strugglin' to get it to come to pass?
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:29.210
  • You're strugglin' to get out of debt, you're strugglin' to
  • 00:11:29.220 --> 00:11:31.010
  • be healed, you're struggling for to have a happy marriage,
  • 00:11:31.020 --> 00:11:33.260
  • you're strugglin' to get a man.
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:36.020
  • You're strugglin' and you're strugglin',
  • 00:11:36.030 --> 00:11:39.150
  • and it's not happening.
  • 00:11:39.160 --> 00:11:43.130
  • Sarah is waiting for the promise that was
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:47.210
  • too absurd to be fulfilled.
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:53.090
  • God wants--listen.
  • 00:11:53.100 --> 00:11:56.200
  • God wants you to experience his promises that are too absurd to
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:12:03.100
  • be believed in your own natural ability,
  • 00:12:03.110 --> 00:12:07.030
  • too absurd to come to pass, too wild,
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:11.140
  • too good to be true, too crazy, too big.
  • 00:12:11.150 --> 00:12:15.290
  • God wants to shock you.
  • 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:18.120
  • God wants to alarm you with his goodness.
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:21.260
  • He wants to amaze you with his promises.
  • 00:12:21.270 --> 00:12:24.180
  • He wants you to experience promises that are too absurd to
  • 00:12:24.190 --> 00:12:28.290
  • bring to pass in your own power.
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:31.000
  • And this is the thing with Abraham.
  • 00:12:31.010 --> 00:12:32.120
  • It's too absurd for him to think, "I'm 100 years old.
  • 00:12:32.130 --> 00:12:34.290
  • How am I gonna have a son?
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:36.090
  • She's 90 years old, how is she gonna bear a child?"
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:39.170
  • And God wants to do absurd things in your
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:41.250
  • life if you'll let him.
  • 00:12:41.260 --> 00:12:45.060
  • What do we gotta do?
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:46.160
  • What did the disciples have to do?
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:48.130
  • They had to willingly--they had to hear the Word and
  • 00:12:48.140 --> 00:12:51.200
  • then willingly receive him.
  • 00:12:51.210 --> 00:12:55.160
  • Sarah's waiting for a promise that was too absurd to be
  • 00:12:55.170 --> 00:12:57.260
  • fulfilled in her own power.
  • 00:12:57.270 --> 00:12:59.250
  • It hurt so bad that she said to Abraham in Genesis 16,
  • 00:12:59.260 --> 00:13:03.220
  • verse 2, look at what she said: "So she said to Abram," in
  • 00:13:03.230 --> 00:13:06.280
  • Genesis 16, verse 2, "The Lord has kept me from having,
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:12.160
  • and restrained me from bearing children.
  • 00:13:12.170 --> 00:13:14.180
  • Please, go to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her."
  • 00:13:14.190 --> 00:13:20.050
  • Listen to what the NIV translation says.
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:24.000
  • I think it makes a little more sense.
  • 00:13:24.010 --> 00:13:26.070
  • "So she said to Abram, 'The Lord has kept me
  • 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:28.160
  • from having children.
  • 00:13:28.170 --> 00:13:29.260
  • Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a
  • 00:13:29.270 --> 00:13:32.070
  • family through her.'"
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:36.250
  • She didn't say, "Go to my maid."
  • 00:13:36.260 --> 00:13:39.180
  • She said, "Go have sex with this servant that works for us."
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:44.240
  • You gotta watch who you employ.
  • 00:13:44.250 --> 00:13:49.160
  • And then watch how spiritual of a man Abraham is.
  • 00:13:49.170 --> 00:13:54.130
  • Watch how much sacrifice this man is willing to make after she
  • 00:13:54.140 --> 00:13:59.070
  • said, "I want you to go to sleep with my servant and build a
  • 00:13:59.080 --> 00:14:02.210
  • family through her."
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:04.160
  • And Abraham, through much toil, and much prayer and fasting,
  • 00:14:04.170 --> 00:14:09.210
  • and much sacrifice, and much reflection,
  • 00:14:09.220 --> 00:14:12.200
  • finally decides, even though he doesn't wanna do it,
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:16.090
  • even though it's the farthest thing from his mind,
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:18.240
  • even though the thought never crossed his mind all of the days
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:23.140
  • of his life, Abraham selflessly agreed to what Sarah said.
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:34.110
  • Can you imagine this?
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:36.010
  • Can you imagine this happening today?
  • 00:14:36.020 --> 00:14:41.140
  • Thank you for all the, "Nos."
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:43.040
  • "No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no."
  • 00:14:43.050 --> 00:14:48.150
  • Sarah is like, "Here, have sex with our employee because
  • 00:14:48.160 --> 00:14:55.180
  • it's not gonna happen.
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:56.280
  • I'm 90 and you're 100.
  • 00:14:56.290 --> 00:14:59.070
  • But she's, you know, she's swarthy and beautiful,
  • 00:14:59.080 --> 00:15:01.150
  • and go for it, man."
  • 00:15:01.160 --> 00:15:03.260
  • Abraham's like, "Wait, pinch me. Am I dreamin'?"
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:08.250
  • Who knows what he was thinkin'? Who knows what he was sayin'?
  • 00:15:08.260 --> 00:15:11.060
  • But come on, let's color in a little here.
  • 00:15:11.070 --> 00:15:16.250
  • Let's do some "Wizard of Oz" and see some color here for a minute
  • 00:15:16.260 --> 00:15:20.080
  • and not just live in the black and white.
  • 00:15:20.090 --> 00:15:21.210
  • Look, he must have been like, "Man, that sounds good."
  • 00:15:21.220 --> 00:15:28.210
  • 'Cause he agreed. He agreed.
  • 00:15:28.220 --> 00:15:34.050
  • And look at what happens.
  • 00:15:34.060 --> 00:15:36.110
  • "And so Abraham agreed to what was said."
  • 00:15:36.120 --> 00:15:39.140
  • And then in verse 2, look at what happens,
  • 00:15:39.150 --> 00:15:43.140
  • or verse 3: "And Hagar, so Sarah his wife took her Egyptian slave
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:48.210
  • Hagar and gave her to her husband to be with his wife."
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:51.030
  • Verse 4: "And he slept with Hagar, and she conceived.
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:54.000
  • And when she knew she was pregnant,
  • 00:15:54.010 --> 00:15:56.160
  • she began to despise her mistress."
  • 00:15:56.170 --> 00:15:58.270
  • Now, it's interesting that it describes this man,
  • 00:15:58.280 --> 00:16:03.080
  • Ishmael, who was born, and it says,
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:06.090
  • "He will be a wild donkey of a man."
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:09.180
  • It says, "He will be a wild donkey of a man;" in verse 12,
  • 00:16:09.190 --> 00:16:15.000
  • "his hand will be against everyone and everyone's
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:17.280
  • hand against him, and he will live in hostility towards
  • 00:16:17.290 --> 00:16:21.220
  • all of his brothers."
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.020
  • Now, notice the description of Ishmael.
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:25.130
  • In other words, when you keep rowin', and
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:27.190
  • strugglin', and you're gonna try to get God to keep his promise.
  • 00:16:27.200 --> 00:16:32.200
  • God makes a promise, and it doesn't come to pass,
  • 00:16:32.210 --> 00:16:34.180
  • and it gets delayed.
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:36.000
  • And you're like, "Well, let's help him.
  • 00:16:36.010 --> 00:16:37.280
  • Let's give God some help."
  • 00:16:37.290 --> 00:16:39.090
  • And then you break all the rules and you go
  • 00:16:39.100 --> 00:16:42.130
  • outside of trusting God.
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:44.170
  • And look at what you give birth.
  • 00:16:44.180 --> 00:16:46.210
  • You give birth to a child who, "Will be a wild donkey of a
  • 00:16:46.220 --> 00:16:50.080
  • man;" a jack-you-know-what is what this is saying,
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:56.180
  • "his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand
  • 00:16:56.190 --> 00:16:59.020
  • will be against him, and he will live in hostility
  • 00:16:59.030 --> 00:17:01.200
  • toward all of his brothers."
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:03.000
  • This is Ishmael and his descendants.
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:06.010
  • This is the modern-day Islamic terrorism.
  • 00:17:06.020 --> 00:17:13.020
  • This is the modern-day Arab world, at least
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:17.040
  • that faction of the Arab world that is willing to
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:20.130
  • kill and destroy others in order to try to get the promises that
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:26.140
  • they think belong to them and that they deserve.
  • 00:17:26.150 --> 00:17:30.000
  • And this is, they're in hostility
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:31.240
  • towards their brothers.
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:33.080
  • Their hand is against everyone and everyone's
  • 00:17:33.090 --> 00:17:35.220
  • hand is against them.
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:37.020
  • The whole world is tryin' to fight terrorism,
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:39.040
  • and terrorists are tryin' to fight the whole world.
  • 00:17:39.050 --> 00:17:41.240
  • This is a prophetic picture of what happens when we try to
  • 00:17:41.250 --> 00:17:45.290
  • bring God's promises to pass in our own efforts and our own
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:50.050
  • religion, our own religion of Ishmael, our own religion
  • 00:17:50.060 --> 00:17:54.060
  • of struggles and striving and trying to hold, tryin' to twist
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:59.000
  • God's arm to get him to do what he said he would do.
  • 00:17:59.010 --> 00:18:05.070
  • That religion, the Islamic religion, tells its followers
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:14.110
  • by killing and raping and stealing, and in the name of
  • 00:18:14.120 --> 00:18:20.250
  • Allah, taking--now, this is that radical sect of Islam.
  • 00:18:20.260 --> 00:18:31.100
  • Not all Muslims believe this stuff.
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:34.060
  • But the radical Islamic jihad believe this.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:41.060
  • Where'd they get it from? Ishmael.
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:45.000
  • Where'd they get it from?
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:46.100
  • Religion that tries to get God to give them something.
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:56.210
  • Where the religion of Isaac is not about bein' a wild donkey of
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:19:02.000
  • a man whose hand is against everyone and everyone's
  • 00:19:02.010 --> 00:19:04.090
  • hand is against him.
  • 00:19:04.100 --> 00:19:05.190
  • The religion of Isaac versus the religion of Ishmael,
  • 00:19:05.200 --> 00:19:08.120
  • 'cause there's only two religions in the world.
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:10.030
  • There are only two religions in the world.
  • 00:19:10.040 --> 00:19:11.210
  • And I don't even mean Christianity and Islam.
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:13.230
  • I mean Christianity and all that Ishmael represents: self-effort
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:18.200
  • to try to bring God's promises to pass.
  • 00:19:18.210 --> 00:19:24.220
  • It's tough stuff.
  • 00:19:24.230 --> 00:19:27.200
  • That doesn't mean we're supposed to go to Muslims and say,
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:30.120
  • "You're," you know, "you Ishmael.
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:32.260
  • You're never gonna--" no.
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:35.080
  • Every human being is an Ishmael.
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:38.150
  • Every human being is a part of the religion of Ishmael
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:41.060
  • until they get born again.
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:42.250
  • Then they become a part of the religion of Isaac.
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:45.270
  • Every human being on the face of this earth is striving and
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:49.120
  • struggling to try to get God to give them something,
  • 00:19:49.130 --> 00:19:53.020
  • get God to answer, get God to, you know, keep his promise, get
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:56.110
  • God to keep his Word, get God to do what he said he
  • 00:19:56.120 --> 00:19:59.080
  • would do, get God to reward me, get God to bless me,
  • 00:19:59.090 --> 00:20:01.190
  • get God to help me, get God--you don't have to strive.
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:05.000
  • All you need to do is willingly receive him,
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:08.020
  • and you have immediately arrived.
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:09.290
  • Willingly receive him, and you are there.
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:12.050
  • Gregory: Well, there you have it, the secret to getting you
  • 00:20:16.030 --> 00:20:18.220
  • there, the secret to getting to your healing, to getting
  • 00:20:18.230 --> 00:20:22.000
  • to your freedom, your breakthrough, your deliverance,
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:25.150
  • the key to ending the waiting game and accelerating your
  • 00:20:25.160 --> 00:20:28.180
  • arrival to God's purpose and destination for your life.
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:32.120
  • It's simply found in God's more than amazing grace.
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:35.190
  • We can keep rowing and rowing until we're exhausted and burned
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:38.260
  • out, ready to drown like the disciples were.
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:41.250
  • Or we can awaken to this grace that changes everything.
  • 00:20:41.260 --> 00:20:45.280
  • I remember living life by my own works,
  • 00:20:45.290 --> 00:20:48.130
  • rowing to get to the other side.
  • 00:20:48.140 --> 00:20:51.010
  • I was so unhappy, tired, angry, addicted.
  • 00:20:51.020 --> 00:20:53.230
  • But when I found out about his grace, God's riches at
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:57.250
  • Christ's expense, let me tell ya, it changed me.
  • 00:20:57.260 --> 00:21:01.100
  • Grace is an awakening that it's not my efforts that bring
  • 00:21:01.110 --> 00:21:06.020
  • victory, but it's Jesus' victory that gets me to the other side.
  • 00:21:06.030 --> 00:21:10.240
  • That's what the disciples found out in the story
  • 00:21:10.250 --> 00:21:12.270
  • we looked at today.
  • 00:21:12.280 --> 00:21:14.070
  • When they willingly received the living grace of God into their
  • 00:21:14.080 --> 00:21:18.140
  • boat, they got there.
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:20.240
  • Not next year, not next week, they got there immediately.
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:25.290
  • And that's what you can have today when you get ahold of
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:28.080
  • God's more than amazing grace, immediate breakthroughs,
  • 00:21:28.090 --> 00:21:32.040
  • immediate restoration, healing.
  • 00:21:32.050 --> 00:21:34.140
  • It's all found by activating God's grace.
  • 00:21:34.150 --> 00:21:36.170
  • It's changing people's lives.
  • 00:21:36.180 --> 00:21:37.270
  • Listen to this great testimony: "Dear Pastor, I was struggling
  • 00:21:37.280 --> 00:21:42.290
  • with all these strongholds in my life.
  • 00:21:43.000 --> 00:21:45.140
  • All I had was God's Word.
  • 00:21:45.150 --> 00:21:47.240

  • 40-day fast from wrong thinking.
  • 00:22:01.110 --> 00:22:03.180
  • And as a result, I quit smoking shortly after.
  • 00:22:03.190 --> 00:22:06.140
  • I had smoked for 50 years of my life.
  • 00:22:06.150 --> 00:22:09.090
  • And now I've been clean for 4 months,
