  • breakthrough thinking.
  • 00:00:04.010 --> 00:00:05.130
  • Breakthrough thinking produces breakthrough living.
  • 00:00:05.140 --> 00:00:08.180
  • And the next breakthrough that you need in your life,
  • 00:00:08.190 --> 00:00:10.180
  • the next breakthrough you want in your life,
  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:12.120
  • is gonna happen because your thinking has changed.
  • 00:00:12.130 --> 00:00:16.210
  • You've got to begin to see things the way God sees them.
  • 00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:19.170
  • You gotta begin to see people the way God sees people.
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:21.290
  • You gotta begin to see yourself the way God sees you.
  • 00:00:22.000 --> 00:00:24.210
  • And that's breakthrough thinking that produces
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:26.160
  • breakthrough living.
  • 00:00:26.170 --> 00:00:27.260
  • Can you say, "Amen," here today?

  • 00:00:45.270 --> 00:00:58.120
  • Gregory: Hi, I'm Gregory Dickow, and welcome to
  • 00:00:59.060 --> 00:01:00.170
  • "The Power to Change Today."
  • 00:01:00.180 --> 00:01:02.200
  • And, you know, several years ago I was led to start my first
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:05.120
  • fast from wrong thinking.
  • 00:01:05.130 --> 00:01:07.020
  • Not a fast from food, but a fast from wrong thinking.
  • 00:01:07.030 --> 00:01:09.270
  • And 40 days later, and 40 emails later, and several thousand
  • 00:01:09.280 --> 00:01:13.260
  • people later, this God idea became a movement.
  • 00:01:13.270 --> 00:01:18.040
  • And now, hundreds of thousands of people have responded to say,
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:21.050
  • "No," to negative thinking and, "Yes," to God's way of life.
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:25.290
  • Listen, I've seen story after story of changed lives,
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:28.240
  • broken addictions, financial and health breakthroughs,
  • 00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:32.010
  • restored relationships, and so much more through this simple
  • 00:01:32.020 --> 00:01:35.190
  • step-by-step fast from wrong thinking.
  • 00:01:35.200 --> 00:01:38.060
  • And, as a matter of fact, I'm gonna share a few with you later
  • 00:01:38.070 --> 00:01:40.220
  • on in the program to encourage you and say to you,
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:42.250
  • "If you haven't signed up for our newest fast from wrong
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:45.150
  • thinking, don't miss out."
  • 00:01:45.160 --> 00:01:46.260
  • A few months ago, the Lord began to speak to me two words that I
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:50.070
  • wanna share with you in today's broadcast.
  • 00:01:50.080 --> 00:01:52.190
  • And those two words were "breakthrough thinking."
  • 00:01:52.200 --> 00:01:55.100
  • "Breakthrough thinking," it kept goin' over and
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:57.210
  • over in my mind and in my heart.
  • 00:01:57.220 --> 00:02:00.090
  • Well, in today's message I'm gonna reveal to you what the
  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:02.260
  • Lord showed me about how through this simple shift in your
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:06.120
  • thinking you can experience the breakthroughs in your
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:08.280
  • life that you're longing for.
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:10.270
  • Breakthrough thinking produces breakthrough living,
  • 00:02:10.280 --> 00:02:14.000
  • whether it be in your finances, your relationships,
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:16.040
  • or any area of your life.
  • 00:02:16.050 --> 00:02:18.020
  • I am convinced this is the secret to the kind
  • 00:02:18.030 --> 00:02:22.010
  • of life God intended for you.
  • 00:02:22.020 --> 00:02:24.000
  • Breakthrough thinking is about to breakthrough into your life
  • 00:02:24.010 --> 00:02:28.100
  • and produce the lifestyle of rejoicing and breakthroughs
  • 00:02:28.110 --> 00:02:32.180
  • that you've been longing for.
  • 00:02:32.190 --> 00:02:33.280
  • Check this out.
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:35.290
  • Gregory: Today we're gonna get ahold of breakthrough thinking.
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:41.010
  • The next breakthrough that you need in your life,
  • 00:02:41.020 --> 00:02:43.030
  • the next breakthrough you want in your life,
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:44.270
  • is gonna happen because your thinking has changed.
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:49.250
  • Now, I take you to this Scripture because it speaks so
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:53.050
  • clearly to me, or God was speaking clearly to me about
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:56.050
  • breakthrough thinking through this miracle that
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:58.200
  • he did in Mark chapter 8.
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:00.020
  • So let's look there, Mark chapter 8, verse 22.
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:04.120
  • In Mark 8:22 it says: "Then he Bethsaida;" notice it says,
  • 00:03:04.130 --> 00:03:09.140
  • "Jesus came to this town called Bethsaida;
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:15.110
  • and they brought a blind man to him,
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:18.110
  • and begged him to touch him."
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:21.190
  • Now, this is what--I'm gonna go through several breakthrough
  • 00:03:21.200 --> 00:03:26.050
  • thinkings, or breakthrough thoughts,
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:28.220
  • thinking that will bring you into the breakthrough living
  • 00:03:28.230 --> 00:03:31.150
  • that God created you for.
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:32.280
  • And the first one is found right here in this verse.
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:36.030
  • So a miracle's about to happen in this man's life.
  • 00:03:36.040 --> 00:03:37.290
  • But notice what happens first.
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:40.090
  • It says, "They came to--Jesus came to Bethsaida;
  • 00:03:40.100 --> 00:03:43.140
  • and they brought a blind man to him."
  • 00:03:43.150 --> 00:03:46.090
  • They brought a blind man to him.
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:48.170
  • "They begged him to touch him."
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:50.050
  • It wasn't just this man coming to Jesus by himself.
  • 00:03:50.060 --> 00:03:55.160
  • Now, can Jesus do a miracle
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:57.110
  • in your life when you go to him by yourself?
  • 00:03:57.120 --> 00:03:58.210
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:00.030
  • Can Jesus heal you when you go to him by yourself?
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:02.020
  • No doubt he can.
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.120
  • Can Jesus bring you a breakthrough by yourself?
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:06.260
  • Yes, he can.
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:08.060
  • But I'm talkin' about a lifestyle of breakthroughs
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:11.280
  • happen through the right associations and
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:16.180
  • the right relationships.
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:17.280
  • Notice, it says, "They brought a blind man to him."
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:20.210
  • In other words, this blind man had surrounded himself with the
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:24.120
  • right kind of people.
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:26.010
  • This blind man surrounded himself with the kind of people
  • 00:04:26.020 --> 00:04:29.220
  • that would bring him to Jesus, the kind of people that loved
  • 00:04:29.230 --> 00:04:32.200
  • the Lord, the kind of people that believed in his best for
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:37.200
  • his life and believed in wanting the best for his life.
  • 00:04:37.210 --> 00:04:40.290
  • Notice, all of us have friends. All of us have relationships.
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:44.220
  • But we have to have the right associations if we
  • 00:04:44.230 --> 00:04:48.030
  • want to experience breakthroughs in our life.
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:50.010
  • I like to say it, "Breakthrough thinking occurs when you have
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:52.290
  • the right associations."
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.210
  • Who you surround yourself with matters.
  • 00:04:54.220 --> 00:04:57.280
  • That's why it's important where you go to church.
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:04:59.230
  • That's why it's important who your friends are.
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:01.210
  • That's why it's important what you engage in on social media.
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:05.110
  • And when people are saying things or communicating their
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:09.000
  • strong feelings and opinions, whether it be about politics,
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:12.250
  • or whether it be about religion, or whether it be about somebody
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:15.150
  • they don't like, we can't engage in people's opinions.
  • 00:05:15.160 --> 00:05:19.280
  • Opinions don't change our lives. God's Word changes our lives.
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:24.110
  • And we need, if we want a breakthrough in our life,
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:26.160
  • we need breakthrough thinking.
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:27.260
  • And breakthrough thinking occurs when we choose
  • 00:05:27.270 --> 00:05:31.120
  • the right associations.
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:33.170
  • This man was smart.
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:35.130
  • He was blind, but he surrounded himself with the right people.
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:38.230
  • And we need to understand something.
  • 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:40.100
  • We all have blind spots. We all have weaknesses.
  • 00:05:40.110 --> 00:05:43.050
  • We all have areas of our life where we're struggling or we're
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:46.000
  • not experiencing God's best for our lives.
  • 00:05:46.010 --> 00:05:48.150
  • We must learn to surround ourselves with
  • 00:05:48.160 --> 00:05:52.050
  • the right associations, amen?
  • 00:05:52.060 --> 00:05:56.130
  • It's amazing to me that back in Mark chapter 8
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:59.190
  • we see that this guy was blind.
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:02.190
  • He had all these friends that brought him to Jesus.
  • 00:06:02.200 --> 00:06:07.200
  • They brought this blind man to him.
  • 00:06:07.210 --> 00:06:10.100
  • How many want friends like that?
  • 00:06:10.110 --> 00:06:11.260
  • When you're down, they bring you to Jesus.
  • 00:06:11.270 --> 00:06:14.010
  • When you're strugglin', they bring you to Jesus.
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:16.060
  • When you're sufferin', they bring you to Jesus.
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:18.100
  • When you're hurting, they bring you to Jesus.
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:21.010
  • And this is the kind of people we need to be for others.
  • 00:06:21.020 --> 00:06:23.290
  • And this is the kind of church that we need to be for this
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:26.220
  • community, for our cities, and for our nation,
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:29.040
  • and for our world, amen.
  • 00:06:29.050 --> 00:06:30.210
  • We need to be the kind of people that we're gonna
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.150
  • bring others to Jesus.
  • 00:06:32.160 --> 00:06:33.260
  • We're gonna bring others to Jesus.
  • 00:06:33.270 --> 00:06:35.090
  • We're not bringin' your struggle to other people and gossiping
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:39.130
  • about your struggle.
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.230
  • If you tell me about your struggle, I'm takin' it to God.
  • 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:43.260
  • I'm not takin' to anybody else. I'm not sharin' it on Facebook.
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:46.250
  • I'm not talkin' about it with my friends.
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:48.140
  • I'm not talkin' about it with anybody.
  • 00:06:48.150 --> 00:06:49.280
  • I'm takin' it to God.
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:51.080
  • We need to be people that take people's lives to the Lord.
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:54.040
  • Those are the kinds of people that you want to be surrounding
  • 00:06:54.050 --> 00:06:56.030
  • yourself with, amen.
  • 00:06:56.040 --> 00:06:59.040
  • Whoo, breakthrough thinking.
  • 00:06:59.050 --> 00:07:01.060
  • Say, "Breakthrough thinking occurs when you have
  • 00:07:01.070 --> 00:07:05.080
  • the right associations," amen.
  • 00:07:05.090 --> 00:07:09.070
  • Now, notice what he says in verse 23 as we continue,
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:11.280
  • he says: "So Jesus takes the blind man by the hand and led
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:17.080
  • him out of the town," and out of the village.
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:22.210
  • Now, this is really important because this is a man who is
  • 00:07:22.220 --> 00:07:26.020
  • blind, and he has gotten used to the town he's in.
  • 00:07:26.030 --> 00:07:29.190
  • He's gotten used to the streets his on.
  • 00:07:29.200 --> 00:07:31.190
  • He's probably got used to the corner that he can,
  • 00:07:31.200 --> 00:07:34.020
  • he has--you know, when somebody is weak in one of their senses,
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:38.140
  • they're usually stronger in one of their other senses.
  • 00:07:38.150 --> 00:07:40.210
  • So maybe he can hear better, so he knows who the people are,
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:45.000
  • and he knows what street he's on based on the
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:47.020
  • people that are walking by.
  • 00:07:47.030 --> 00:07:48.130
  • He knows what corner he's on based on the
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:50.140
  • smell that he smells.
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:52.010
  • He has acute sense of smell.
  • 00:07:52.020 --> 00:07:53.150
  • He has an acute sense of hearing.
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.000
  • He has an acute sense of taste and a sense of feel.
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:58.240
  • But he doesn't have his sense of sight.
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.180
  • And so he's relied on all of his other senses since his sense
  • 00:08:01.190 --> 00:08:07.070
  • of seeing is problematic.
  • 00:08:07.080 --> 00:08:10.160
  • His sense of seeing is interrupted by his blindness.
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:17.030
  • He's become really accustomed and comfortable in his corner,
  • 00:08:17.040 --> 00:08:21.090
  • and comfortable on his street, and comfortable knowing and
  • 00:08:21.100 --> 00:08:25.260
  • being familiar with his surroundings.
  • 00:08:25.270 --> 00:08:27.130
  • And notice, the first thing Jesus does is he takes him by
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:29.210
  • the hand and he leads him out of his comfort level.
  • 00:08:29.220 --> 00:08:35.060
  • He leads him out of his comfort zone.
  • 00:08:35.070 --> 00:08:37.140
  • You are not gonna have breakthroughs in your life
  • 00:08:37.150 --> 00:08:39.090
  • unless you're willing to break through your comfort level,
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:43.010
  • break through your comfort zone.
  • 00:08:43.020 --> 00:08:44.260
  • It wasn't easy for the four friends of that paralyzed man to
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:47.280
  • carry him on a couch up onto the roof of the house and lower him
  • 00:08:47.290 --> 00:08:51.270
  • through the roof, but he got healed.
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:54.020
  • It wasn't comfortable for those five virgins to make sure they
  • 00:08:54.030 --> 00:08:57.010
  • had oil in their lamps, and make sure that they weren't messin'
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:59.240
  • around throughout the days and throughout the weeks while they
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:02.090
  • were waiting for the Bridegroom so when the Bridegroom came at
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:04.240
  • midnight, the five foolish virgins turn over to the five
  • 00:09:04.250 --> 00:09:08.090
  • wise ones and say, "Hey, give us some of your oil."
  • 00:09:08.100 --> 00:09:11.190
  • And they said, "There's not enough for us and for you.
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:14.160
  • Go buy your own."
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:16.020
  • And so they go at the last minute.
  • 00:09:16.030 --> 00:09:17.160
  • There's no 7-11s. There are no convenience stores.
  • 00:09:17.170 --> 00:09:20.030
  • There are no 24-hour Citgos.
  • 00:09:20.040 --> 00:09:21.270
  • There's nowhere for them to go to get any oil back in that time
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:25.200
  • because they were not willing to inconvenience themselves.
  • 00:09:25.210 --> 00:09:30.010
  • They were not willing to be uncomfortable
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:32.100
  • when they needed a breakthrough.
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:33.200
  • And when you need a breakthrough,
  • 00:09:33.210 --> 00:09:35.000
  • we've gotta get uncomfortable.
  • 00:09:35.010 --> 00:09:38.230
  • Now, back when I played golf, I haven't played,
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:40.160
  • I've played maybe once in the last 2 years,
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:42.230
  • once or twice in the last 2 years.
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:44.040
  • But back when I, back in the day when I was learnin' to play
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:46.230
  • golf, I found a dear friend, a member of our church,
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:50.250
  • who was a semi-professional golfer.
  • 00:09:50.260 --> 00:09:55.000
  • And he said, "Come on, let me show you how to play this game."
  • 00:09:55.010 --> 00:09:58.140
  • And I was playing it and I was doin' okay.
  • 00:09:58.150 --> 00:10:01.040
  • You know, I would shoot, you know,
  • 00:10:01.050 --> 00:10:02.140
  • 85 or 90 in a 18-hole, just in case you were wonderin' if that
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:08.080
  • 9 holes or 18 holes.
  • 00:10:08.090 --> 00:10:11.180
  • I'd shoot 85 or 90. It wasn't bad.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:14.130
  • But he said, "Here, come here.
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:15.230
  • Let me see how you hit the ball."
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:18.220
  • So I come up, and you know, I hit the ball.
  • 00:10:18.230 --> 00:10:22.150
  • And this is what the guy said.
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:23.250
  • He said, "Oh, tssk, it's easy.
  • 00:10:23.260 --> 00:10:26.190
  • You only have three things you're doin wrong: your grip,
  • 00:10:26.200 --> 00:10:30.120
  • your stance, and your swing."
  • 00:10:30.130 --> 00:10:35.270
  • People, there are no other things about golf
  • 00:10:35.280 --> 00:10:41.060
  • than those three things.
  • 00:10:41.070 --> 00:10:44.240
  • Everything I was doin' was wrong.
  • 00:10:44.250 --> 00:10:46.270
  • And so I said to him, so he said, "Here, change your grips,
  • 00:10:46.280 --> 00:10:50.120
  • change your stance, and change your swing.
  • 00:10:50.130 --> 00:10:51.280
  • Let me show you how to do it."
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:53.080
  • So he shows me how to do it, and you know what I said?
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:54.280
  • The first thing that I said, "That's uncomfortable."
  • 00:10:54.290 --> 00:10:58.120
  • The first thing I said, "This new grip,
  • 00:10:58.130 --> 00:11:00.210
  • this new stance, this new swing, this is uncomfortable."
  • 00:11:00.220 --> 00:11:04.100
  • And he said, "Well, how comfortable are you goin'
  • 00:11:04.110 --> 00:11:06.260
  • through the woods to try to find your ball?"
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:12.150
  • Breakthrough thinking occurs when you make up your mind
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:17.010
  • you're not okay with just being comfortable.
  • 00:11:17.020 --> 00:11:23.240
  • Takes him out of the town, and notice what happens.
  • 00:11:23.250 --> 00:11:27.180
  • It says, "And he spits on his eyes," he spits on his eyes,
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:35.080
  • "and lays his hands on him, and asks him if he sees anything."
  • 00:11:35.090 --> 00:11:40.130
  • Now, notice, when he spits in his eyes,
  • 00:11:40.140 --> 00:11:43.020
  • this is Jesus spitting in this man's eyes.
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:44.260
  • And if you've been in this church long enough,
  • 00:11:44.270 --> 00:11:46.060
  • you know from what you've heard from me this is holy spit.
  • 00:11:46.070 --> 00:11:51.130
  • This is not just any kinda spit.
  • 00:11:51.140 --> 00:11:53.070
  • This is holy spit 'cause it's comin' from Jesus' mouth.
  • 00:11:53.080 --> 00:11:56.110
  • And here, if we're going to break through,
  • 00:11:56.120 --> 00:11:59.130
  • if we're going to have breakthrough living,
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:01.160
  • we've got to realize somethin'.
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:03.050
  • There are a lot of people that are gonna spit on us.
  • 00:12:03.060 --> 00:12:05.270
  • There are a lot of people that are gonna give us their spit.
  • 00:12:05.280 --> 00:12:08.100
  • There are a lot of people that are full of spit.
  • 00:12:08.110 --> 00:12:10.090
  • There are a lot of people that say things and do things to us,
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:13.240
  • right, and yet, what we have to be willing to do
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:17.170
  • is embrace what Jesus says.
  • 00:12:17.180 --> 00:12:20.080
  • We have to embrace what's comin' out of his mouth.
  • 00:12:20.090 --> 00:12:22.080
  • We gotta stop paying so much attention to what's comin' out
  • 00:12:22.090 --> 00:12:25.120
  • of everybody else's mouth.
  • 00:12:25.130 --> 00:12:27.010
  • We gotta stop payin' attention to what's comin'
  • 00:12:27.020 --> 00:12:28.170
  • out of the devil's mouth.
  • 00:12:28.180 --> 00:12:29.270
  • And we gotta sit there and take Jesus' spit right in our eye.
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:34.160
  • And it's gonna offend you sometimes.
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:36.130
  • And if you're gonna have a breakthrough in your life,
  • 00:12:36.140 --> 00:12:38.080
  • breakthrough thinking occurs when you deal
  • 00:12:38.090 --> 00:12:40.260
  • with the spirit of offense.
  • 00:12:40.270 --> 00:12:44.260
  • Breakthrough thinking occurs when you deal
  • 00:12:44.270 --> 00:12:46.220
  • with the spirit of offense.
  • 00:12:46.230 --> 00:12:48.040
  • In other words, "Okay, I'm not gonna get mad at the church
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:52.110
  • 'cause they're havin' heart for the house.
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:54.090
  • I'm not gonna get offended at the church 'cause the
  • 00:12:54.100 --> 00:12:56.030
  • pastor's receivin' the offering.
  • 00:12:56.040 --> 00:12:57.130
  • I'm not gonna get offended at the church
  • 00:12:57.140 --> 00:12:59.010
  • because they asked me to serve.
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:00.230
  • I'm not gonna get offended because they got up in my
  • 00:13:00.240 --> 00:13:03.060
  • business and read my mail without me knowin' it.
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:06.080
  • Look, we are interested in seeing you become
  • 00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:08.250
  • the best version of yourself.
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:10.100
  • And if you're going to get a breakthrough in your life,
  • 00:13:10.110 --> 00:13:12.250
  • you're gonna break through the barriers of your past,
  • 00:13:12.260 --> 00:13:15.110
  • the barriers of your pain, the barriers of your limitations,
  • 00:13:15.120 --> 00:13:19.060
  • if you're gonna break into healing, and break into
  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:21.030
  • victory, and break into blessing, and break through
  • 00:13:21.040 --> 00:13:23.190
  • into the purpose that God created you for,
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:25.290
  • you've gotta be willin' to be spit on and not be offended.
  • 00:13:26.000 --> 00:13:29.030
  • You gotta be willin' to hear some things that are comin' out
  • 00:13:29.040 --> 00:13:31.260
  • of God's mouth and be able to take it like a man or take it
  • 00:13:31.270 --> 00:13:35.190
  • like a woman and not get so touchy, fretful, resentful, when
  • 00:13:35.200 --> 00:13:39.040
  • somebody says somethin' you don't like to hear.
  • 00:13:39.050 --> 00:13:41.290
  • Breakthrough thinking occurs when you deal with the spirit
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:45.030
  • of offense and you focus.
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:47.170
  • Breakthrough thinking occurs when you focus on what's coming
  • 00:13:47.180 --> 00:13:51.060
  • out of his mouth, not everybody else's.
  • 00:13:51.070 --> 00:13:54.080
  • Look, there are a lot of people sayin' stuff about me,
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:56.030
  • sayin' stuff about you.
  • 00:13:56.040 --> 00:13:57.130
  • The more you move forward in life, the more you impact
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:14:01.030
  • other people's lives, the more the devil is gonna send
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:04.050
  • people to talk nasty about you and to talk spit about you.
  • 00:14:04.060 --> 00:14:09.110
  • And I'm just sayin' what the Bible is sayin'.
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:10.270
  • I'm not makin' stuff up.
  • 00:14:10.280 --> 00:14:12.080
  • I'm just quotin' the Word of God.
  • 00:14:12.090 --> 00:14:22.190
  • Deal with the spirit of offense.
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:24.080
  • Make up your mind, "Look, I'm not gonna let other people's
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:28.190
  • words carry weight.
  • 00:14:28.200 --> 00:14:31.100
  • I'm not focusing on what's comin' out of
  • 00:14:31.110 --> 00:14:32.260
  • anybody else's mouth.
  • 00:14:32.270 --> 00:14:34.240
  • I'm focusing on what's comin' out of Jesus' mouth.
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:40.020
  • There's a breakthrough about to happen in this man's life 'cause
  • 00:14:40.030 --> 00:14:42.210
  • he's willin' to let Jesus spit in his eye.
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:45.240
  • Be willing to take correction.
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:47.290
  • Be willing to--don't take correction as rejection.
  • 00:14:48.000 --> 00:14:52.150
  • I see people leave churches, not just our church, any church.
  • 00:14:52.160 --> 00:14:57.020
  • I see people leave churches when they interpret
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:15:01.050
  • correction as rejection.
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:03.140
  • So when somebody corrects them, they think that
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:05.250
  • person's rejecting them.
  • 00:15:05.260 --> 00:15:07.180
  • But really, the Bible says, "God disciplines those whom he loves.
  • 00:15:07.190 --> 00:15:12.230
  • He corrects the sons whom he receives."
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:15.050
  • If you're a son or daughter of God, he wants to give
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:17.100
  • you correction so that you can get better, so that you
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:20.190
  • can be stronger, so that you can hit the ball straight down
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:23.180
  • the fairway rather than bein' in the woods all the time.
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:28.070
  • But if you're--if you stay comfortable with your swing,
  • 00:15:28.080 --> 00:15:32.090
  • and comfortable with goin' into the woods,
  • 00:15:32.100 --> 00:15:33.260
  • and comfortable with always hittin' out of the rough,
  • 00:15:33.270 --> 00:15:37.160
  • and comfortable with always havin' to take a mulligan,
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:40.090
  • and comfortable with always havin' to,
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:41.290
  • you know, get a do over, then you're gonna stay at the same
  • 00:15:42.000 --> 00:15:45.030
  • place that you've always been.
  • 00:15:45.040 --> 00:15:46.130
  • And that's why people continue to pay hundreds and thousands
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:48.190
  • of dollars of money in golf and goin' golfing and
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:52.230
  • they're not gettin' any better.
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:54.030
  • And 60 year olds, and 70 year olds, and 80 year olds, are
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:56.130
  • still shooting 90 and 100 because they're
  • 00:15:56.140 --> 00:15:59.010
  • comfortable with their swing.
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:01.010
  • And I'm here to tell ya, stop bein'
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:02.110
  • comfortable with your swing.
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:03.260
  • Stop bein' comfortable with your grip.
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:05.210
  • Stop bein' comfortable with your stance.
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:07.190
  • And let God correct your way of thinking.
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:10.090
  • And let God spit in your eye.
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:12.080
  • And let him put his hands on your head.
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:14.130
  • And let him touch you again, and watch what
  • 00:16:14.140 --> 00:16:16.140
  • he'll do in your life, amen.
  • 00:16:16.150 --> 00:16:22.190
  • And notice what happens here.
  • 00:16:22.200 --> 00:16:28.030
  • Now, see, the thing you have to understand about the next verse,
  • 00:16:28.040 --> 00:16:32.070
  • it says, "He asked him, 'Do you see anything?'"
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:34.110
  • So he touches him the first time,
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:35.210
  • says, "Do you see anything?"
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:37.010
  • And then notice what happens, verse 24: "And he looked and he
  • 00:16:37.020 --> 00:16:40.080
  • said, 'I see men like trees, walking.'"
  • 00:16:40.090 --> 00:16:43.190
  • So he sees men like trees, walking.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:46.020
  • It's really important what I'm about to say here.
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:48.070
  • I think it'll help you understand what our next point
  • 00:16:48.080 --> 00:16:53.040
  • is, what our breakthrough thinking needs to be to have
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:55.230
  • breakthrough living.
  • 00:16:55.240 --> 00:16:57.030
  • But, if you could--if I can put it to you this way.
  • 00:16:57.040 --> 00:17:03.160
  • When Jesus touches him the first time, he has improved.
  • 00:17:03.170 --> 00:17:07.250
  • He sees men, but he sees them like trees, walking.
  • 00:17:07.260 --> 00:17:13.180
  • In other words, his view of people is distorted.
  • 00:17:13.190 --> 00:17:18.030
  • His view of himself and his view of people is distorted.
  • 00:17:18.040 --> 00:17:21.000
  • He's, quote, unquote, "Saved, but not
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:25.110
  • sanctified," if you will.
  • 00:17:25.120 --> 00:17:27.020
  • He's saved, but not renewed in his thinking.
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:29.260
  • In other words, Jesus has touched him once.
  • 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:32.180
  • But he sees men like trees walking.
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:36.050
  • Listen, if we're gonna experience the breakthrough
  • 00:17:36.060 --> 00:17:39.130
  • living that God has for each of us,
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:41.020
  • we have to have breakthrough thinking.
  • 00:17:41.030 --> 00:17:42.120
  • And the next point that I wanna make about breakthrough thinking
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:44.260
  • is breakthrough thinking occurs when you understand God's
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:48.100
  • purpose for your life and for the lives of others.
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:52.160
  • Breakthrough occurs when you understand God's purpose for
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:55.260
  • your life, and God's purpose for others,
  • 00:17:55.270 --> 00:17:59.130
  • or when you see yourself and people the way God sees them.
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:05.150
  • Listen, how can I get this across to you?
  • 00:18:05.160 --> 00:18:07.120
  • When you see yourself and others the way God sees them,
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:11.290
  • you're gonna begin to have breakthroughs in your life.
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:15.020
  • But right now, after this first touch of Jesus laying his hands
  • 00:18:15.030 --> 00:18:21.000
  • on him, this man sees men like trees walking.
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:23.260
  • Well, for a lot of people, they'd be like,
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:25.230
  • "Well, at least I'm better than I used to be.
  • 00:18:25.240 --> 00:18:27.030
  • At least I'm making progress.
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:28.130
  • At least I've made some progress.
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:29.230
  • I'm okay with that.
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.030
  • I'd like to quit while I'm ahead.
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:32.180
  • I'd like to take my chips off the table and go home."
  • 00:18:32.190 --> 00:18:35.150
  • No, don't settle for just seeing men like trees walking.
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:38.200
  • What's the problem with seeing men like trees walking?
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:41.100
  • The problem is, is you're seeing people as your provision,
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:45.060
  • and you're seeing people as your source.
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.280
  • Because what do we do with trees?
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:48.290
  • We cut 'em down, and we make firewood with 'em,
  • 00:18:49.000 --> 00:18:51.240
  • and we burn a fire to warm ourselves with.
  • 00:18:51.250 --> 00:18:54.060
  • What do we do with trees?
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:55.240
  • We cut 'em down and we build houses with them
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:58.040
  • to protect ourselves.
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:18:59.140
  • What do we do with trees?
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:00.260
  • We cut 'em down and we turn 'em into furniture
  • 00:19:00.270 --> 00:19:03.050
  • to comfort ourselves.
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:04.150
  • What do we do with trees?
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:05.250
  • We break them down, we cut them down, and we turn them
  • 00:19:05.260 --> 00:19:08.130
  • into our artwork, and we turn them into the things
  • 00:19:08.140 --> 00:19:11.210
  • that make us feel better.
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:13.170
  • And God wants us to see that you cannot treat
  • 00:19:13.180 --> 00:19:16.090
  • people as your provision.
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:18.120
  • You cannot treat people like wood.
  • 00:19:18.130 --> 00:19:20.080
  • You cannot treat people like trees.
  • 00:19:20.090 --> 00:19:22.040
  • People are not meant to be trees for your consumption,
  • 00:19:22.050 --> 00:19:26.070
  • and for your provision, and for you to have your needs met.
  • 00:19:26.080 --> 00:19:29.080
  • People need to look like people.
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:31.040
  • Men need to look like men, and trees need to look like trees.
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:33.250
  • And God wants you to see things from his point of view,
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:36.070
  • not from your self-centered, self-absorbed point of view,
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:39.190
  • where, "You're not a tree to me.
  • 00:19:39.200 --> 00:19:41.100
  • You're a man. You're a woman.
  • 00:19:41.110 --> 00:19:42.250
  • I don't see you as my provision.
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:44.130
  • God is my provider. God is my source."
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:46.260
  • You gotta stop seeing your boss as your provider.
  • 00:19:46.270 --> 00:19:50.250
  • Stop seeing your job as your source.
  • 00:19:50.260 --> 00:19:53.140
  • Stop seeing people treating you the right way as the only way
  • 00:19:53.150 --> 00:19:56.240
  • that you're gonna feel better about yourselves.
  • 00:19:56.250 --> 00:19:59.010
  • No, people cannot become your wood for warming,
  • 00:19:59.020 --> 00:20:04.000
  • and your wood for cooking, and your wood for protecting
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:07.140
  • yourself, and your wood for providing yourself.
  • 00:20:07.150 --> 00:20:09.170
  • You've got to begin to see things the way God sees them.
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:12.200
  • You gotta begin to see people the way God sees people.
  • 00:20:12.210 --> 00:20:15.060
  • You gotta begin to see yourself the way God sees you.
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:17.260
  • And that's breakthrough thinking that
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:19.170
  • produces breakthrough living.
  • 00:20:19.180 --> 00:20:20.270
  • Can you say, "Amen," here today?
  • 00:20:20.280 --> 00:20:22.280
  • Gregory: Well, as you know, Proverbs 23:7 says: "As a man
  • 00:20:29.090 --> 00:20:31.290
  • thinks within, so is he."
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:34.170
  • And that's what breakthrough thinking is all about.
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:36.170
  • It's breakthrough thinking that produces breakthrough living.
  • 00:20:36.180 --> 00:20:39.030
  • We don't change by making up our minds.
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:41.270
  • We change by renewing our minds. We change from the inside out.
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:46.160
  • Well, that's why so many people are connecting with me through
  • 00:20:46.170 --> 00:20:49.050
  • the fast from wrong thinking movement.
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:51.230
  • It's a movement, folks.
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:53.030
  • And they're realizing that breakthrough is
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:54.130
  • possible in their life.
  • 00:20:54.140 --> 00:20:56.210
  • It's not just something you hope for but it never comes.
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:59.240
  • People are experiencing breakthroughs because
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:01.160
  • they're following the steps that they're hearing about
  • 00:21:01.170 --> 00:21:04.040
  • on today's program.
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:05.140
  • Take, for example, this email I got from Brandi.
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:08.050
  • She joined the movement and received a breakthrough in her
  • 00:21:08.060 --> 00:21:10.250
  • life by fasting from the thought that says,
  • 00:21:10.260 --> 00:21:13.070
  • "It's just so hard to trust God."
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:15.280
  • She said, "Dear Pastor, thank you so much for
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:18.000
  • this fast from wrong thinking.
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:19.220
  • It has helped me get my life turned around for the better.
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:22.050
  • Before I started this 40-day fast from wrong thinking,
  • 00:21:22.060 --> 00:21:25.010
  • I was hooked on drugs.
  • 00:21:25.020 --> 00:21:27.040
  • I wasn't goin' to church.
  • 00:21:27.050 --> 00:21:28.140
  • I was addicted to alcohol and cigarettes as well.
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:30.280
  • But on the third day of fasting," and she wasn't
  • 00:21:30.290 --> 00:21:34.080
  • fasting from food.
  • 00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:35.180
  • It's just fasting from wrong thoughts and I
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:37.020
  • walk you through it.
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:38.120
  • She said, "On the third day of fasting,
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:39.270
  • I went to church for the first time.
  • 00:21:39.280 --> 00:21:41.280
  • I gave up the drugs, the alcohol, and the cigarettes.
  • 00:21:41.290 --> 00:21:44.100
  • I'm still free from all of it today,
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:47.030
  • and I'm still goin' to church.
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:48.190
  • I wanna thank God for leading me to you."
  • 00:21:48.200 --> 00:21:50.280
  • You see, this is what God wants for you as well.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:54.190
  • Brandi didn't have to say 100 prayers,
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:56.190
  • or wait 100 years for her breakthrough.
  • 00:21:56.200 --> 00:21:59.010
  • She simply changed her thinking.
  • 00:21:59.020 --> 00:22:01.020
  • And within days, her breakthrough came.
  • 00:22:01.030 --> 00:22:03.270
