  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS AND WELCOME AGAIN
  • 00:00:14.040 --> 00:00:16.180
  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.190 --> 00:00:19.030
  • IF YOU'RE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:00:19.040 --> 00:00:21.180
  • THEN YOU'RE UNDER AN INVISIBLE ATTACK BY THE DEVIL WHO HAS A
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:25.250
  • PERSONAL VENDETTA AGAINST EVERY CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:30.020
  • BUT GRATEFULLY, GOD HASN'T LEFT US WITHOUT DEFENSE.
  • 00:00:30.030 --> 00:00:34.210
  • IN EPHESIANS CHAPTER 6, PAUL DESCRIBES AN ELABORATE SET OF
  • 00:00:34.220 --> 00:00:39.010
  • SPIRITUAL ARMOR THAT WE CAN PUT ON TO PROTECT OURSELVES
  • 00:00:39.020 --> 00:00:43.060
  • AGAINST SATAN'S ATTACKS.
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:45.110
  • AND THE FIRST PIECE OF THAT ARMOR THAT WE'LL LOOK AT TODAY
  • 00:00:45.120 --> 00:00:49.090
  • IS THE "BELT OF TRUTH."
  • 00:00:49.100 --> 00:00:51.140
  • MY MESSAGE IS TITLED, "WHEN SATAN COMES KNOCKING"
  • 00:00:51.150 --> 00:00:55.140

  • 00:00:55.150 --> 00:00:58.290
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:05.140
  • THE TEMPTATION THAT ASSAULTS YOU.
  • 00:01:06.270 --> 00:01:09.100
  • THE DEPRESSION OR ILLNESS THAT PULLS YOU DOWN.
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:12.040
  • THE PRIVATE DOUBTS YOU HARBOR ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:15.000
  • THOSE AREN'T JUST NORMAL PARTS OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:17.190
  • THEY'RE WEAPONS IN SATAN'S SINISTER BATTLE AGAINST YOUR
  • 00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:20.070
  • FAITH, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:23.000
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO DO MORE THAN SIMPLY HUNKER DOWN
  • 00:01:23.010 --> 00:01:25.220
  • AND DO THE BEST YOU CAN TO DEFLECT SATAN'S ATTACKS.
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:28.250
  • HE INVITES YOU TO JOIN HIM IN THE MARCH AGAINST SATAN AND
  • 00:01:28.260 --> 00:01:31.170
  • HIS KINGDOM OF DARKNESS.

  • 00:02:02.170 --> 00:02:09.040
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:11.050
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:19.030
  • YOUR MIND IS THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND.
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:24.280
  • OR PERHAPS MORE ACCURATELY,
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:26.070
  • YOUR MIND IS THE SPIRITUAL BATTLEGROUND ON
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:30.140
  • WHICH THE INVISIBLE WAR FOR YOUR SOUL IS BEING WAGED.
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:35.110
  • THE CHOICES YOU MAKE EVERY DAY,
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:38.000
  • THAT SHAPE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR DESTINY,
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:40.060
  • THOSE CHOICES BEGIN WITH A THOUGHT.
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:44.210
  • AND THAT'S WHY IT'S NO SURPRISE THAT IN
  • 00:02:44.220 --> 00:02:47.160
  • EPHESIANS 6, WHEN PAUL BEGINS DISCUSSING HOW WE
  • 00:02:47.170 --> 00:02:51.210
  • CAN WIN IN THE SPIRIT WARS THAT EVERY ONE OF US
  • 00:02:51.220 --> 00:02:55.170
  • IS ENGAGED IN, HE BEGINS WITH TALKING ABOUT HOW WE
  • 00:02:55.180 --> 00:02:59.240
  • CAN CONTROL OUR THOUGHTS, THOUGHTS THAT DETERMINE
  • 00:02:59.250 --> 00:03:03.090
  • OUR LIFE, AND ULTIMATELY, OUR DESTINY.
  • 00:03:03.100 --> 00:03:06.260
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES THIS MORNING,
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:08.070
  • I WANT YOU TO TURN TO EPHESIANS 6,
  • 00:03:08.080 --> 00:03:10.270
  • AS WE DISCOVER WHAT TO DO WHEN SATAN COMES KNOCKING
  • 00:03:10.280 --> 00:03:15.250
  • ON THE DOOR OF YOUR MIND.
  • 00:03:15.260 --> 00:03:17.040
  • EPHESIANS 6.
  • 00:03:17.050 --> 00:03:18.230
  • NOW, WHEN PAUL WROTE THESE POWERFUL WORDS
  • 00:03:18.240 --> 00:03:20.290
  • ABOUT SPIRITUAL WARFARE, REMEMBER WHERE HE WAS,
  • 00:03:21.000 --> 00:03:23.200
  • HE WAS NOT SITTING IN THE PASTOR'S STUDY SOMEPLACE
  • 00:03:23.210 --> 00:03:26.240
  • WRITING THESE WORDS.
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:28.010
  • INSTEAD, HE WAS UNDER ARREST IN ROME.
  • 00:03:28.020 --> 00:03:31.070
  • AND WHILE HE WAS UNDER ARREST,
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:33.250
  • EVERY 6 HOURS HE WOULD BE CHAINED
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:36.190
  • TO A NEW ROMAN GUARD.
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:38.170
  • AND SO, AS PAUL WAS CHAINED TO THAT GUARD,
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:40.270
  • AND HE WAS THINKING ABOUT THIS SUBJECT OF SPIRITUAL
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:43.080
  • WARFARE, HE LOOKED AT THAT GUARD CLOSELY,
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:46.050
  • AND HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF,
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.150
  • "YOU KNOW, THE SAME WEAPONS,
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:49.260
  • THE SAME EQUIPMENT THAT THIS GUARD UTILIZES TO
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:53.100
  • SUCCEED IN BATTLE AGAINST THE ENEMY,
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:55.250
  • IN MANY WAYS IS ALIKE THE EQUIPMENT,
  • 00:03:55.260 --> 00:03:57.290
  • THE SPIRITUAL EQUIPMENT, GOD HAS PROVIDED EACH ONE
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:04:01.020
  • OF US IN OUR WAR AGAINST SATAN."
  • 00:04:01.030 --> 00:04:04.040
  • AND SO, AS PAUL SAT THERE AND HE PENNED THIS LETTER
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:06.260
  • TO THE CHRISTIANS AT EPHESUS,
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:08.170
  • HE PICKED OUT SIX PIECES OF ARMOR ON THAT ROMAN
  • 00:04:08.180 --> 00:04:11.250
  • SOLDIER, AND USED THEM AS A METAPHOR FOR THE KIND
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:15.190
  • OF STRATEGIES WE NEED TO USE IF WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:18.260
  • DEFEAT SATAN'S PLAN TO DESTROY OUR LIVES.
  • 00:04:18.270 --> 00:04:22.070
  • NOW, LOOK AT EPHESIANS 6:13-14.
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:25.140
  • PAUL WRITES, "TAKE UP THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD THAT
  • 00:04:25.150 --> 00:04:29.180
  • YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RESIST IN THE EVIL DAY,
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:32.120
  • AND HAVING DONE EVERYTHING,
  • 00:04:32.130 --> 00:04:34.020
  • TO STAND FIRM.
  • 00:04:34.030 --> 00:04:35.160
  • STAND FIRM, THEREFORE, HAVING GIRDED
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:38.200
  • YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH."
  • 00:04:38.210 --> 00:04:41.080
  • NOW, THAT SOUNDS KIND-OF ODD,
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:42.130
  • "GIRD YOUR LOINS," WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:45.110
  • WELL, THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION
  • 00:04:45.120 --> 00:04:46.260
  • PROBABLY TRANSLATES IT MORE ACCURATELY,
  • 00:04:46.270 --> 00:04:48.280
  • WHEN PAUL ENCOURAGES US TO PUT ON WHAT HE CALLS,
  • 00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:52.070
  • "THE BELT OF TRUTH."
  • 00:04:52.080 --> 00:04:54.240
  • THE FIRST PIECE OF SPIRITUAL EQUIPMENT THAT
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:57.120
  • WILL HELP US DEFEAT SATAN'S PLAN TO DESTROY
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:04:59.240
  • OUR LIFE, IS THE BELT OF TRUTH.
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:02.110
  • NOW, YOU KNOW, IN OUR CULTURE,
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:04.280
  • BELTS ARE KIND-OF SECONDARY ACCESSORIES.
  • 00:05:04.290 --> 00:05:08.260
  • MAYBE NOT TO YOU WOMEN, BUT TO MOST OF US MEN,
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:11.250
  • WE DON'T GIVE A LOT OF THOUGHT TO THE BELT THAT
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:13.280
  • WE WEAR, IT'S A SECONDARY PIECE OF DRESS.
  • 00:05:13.290 --> 00:05:18.140
  • BUT FOR A ROMAN SOLDIER, THE BELT WAS ESSENTIAL,
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:22.090
  • ESPECIALLY IN WARFARE.
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:23.280
  • YOU SEE, THE ROMAN SOLDIER WORE A
  • 00:05:23.290 --> 00:05:26.150
  • FREE-FLOWING TUNIC.
  • 00:05:26.160 --> 00:05:28.150
  • THAT WAS THE BASIC PIECE OF CLOTHING HE WORE.
  • 00:05:28.160 --> 00:05:31.100
  • AND YOU'VE SEEN IT IN THE MOVIES,
  • 00:05:31.110 --> 00:05:33.020
  • OR ON TELEVISION, THAT FREE-FLOWING TUNIC.
  • 00:05:33.030 --> 00:05:36.180
  • NOW, TUNICS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:38.260
  • IN EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:40.090
  • THEY WERE ESPECIALLY GOOD AT TOGA PARTIES.
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:44.200
  • BUT THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY LETHAL IN BATTLE,
  • 00:05:44.210 --> 00:05:48.200
  • IF THE SOLDIER DIDN'T FIRST DO SOMETHING WITH
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:50.290
  • THIS FREE-FLOWING TUNIC.
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:52.190
  • YOU SEE, IF HE WENT INTO BATTLE WITH THIS TUNIC
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:55.110
  • THAT WAS FREE-FLOWING, AN ENEMY COULD EASILY GRAB
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:57.290
  • HOLD OF A PORTION OF THAT TUNIC AND GAIN AN UNFAIR
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:06:01.100
  • ADVANTAGE IN HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT.
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:03.190
  • OR THE SOLDIER HIMSELF MIGHT ACTUALLY TRIP OVER
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:06.110
  • THE TUNIC WHILE HE WAS ENGAGED IN BATTLE.
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:08.110
  • SO, THE FIRST THING A SOLDIER WOULD DO BEFORE
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.270
  • HE WENT INTO BATTLE, HE WOULD TAKE THE LOOSE ENDS
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:13.170
  • OF THAT TUNIC, AND HE WOULD TUCK THEM INTO THE
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:16.140
  • LEATHER BELT THAT THE SOLDIER WORE.
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:19.130
  • AND SO, PAUL USES THAT ANALOGY
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:21.250
  • IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:23.160
  • YOU KNOW, ALL OF US HAVE THESE FREE-FLOWING
  • 00:06:23.170 --> 00:06:25.260
  • THOUGHTS THROUGH OUR MINDS,
  • 00:06:25.270 --> 00:06:27.230
  • THOUGHTS THAT IF WE'RE NOT CAREFUL,
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:29.150
  • CAN GIVE THE ENEMY AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OVER US,
  • 00:06:29.160 --> 00:06:32.250
  • THOUGHTS THAT CAN EVEN TRIP US UP IN OUR OWN
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:35.110
  • WALK WITH GOD.
  • 00:06:35.120 --> 00:06:36.180
  • YOU SAY, "PASTOR, WHAT KIND OF THOUGHTS
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:37.250
  • ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?"
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:38.220
  • YOU KNOW, WE LOOKED AT FOUR OF SATAN'S MOST
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:40.220
  • LETHAL LIES THAT HE LOVES TO IMPLANT
  • 00:06:40.230 --> 00:06:42.220
  • IN OUR CONSCIOUSNESS.
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:43.290
  • AND THERE ARE A THOUSAND OTHER LIES THAT SATAN
  • 00:06:44.000 --> 00:06:46.010
  • LOVES TO USE WITH US.
  • 00:06:46.020 --> 00:06:47.230
  • NOW, WHAT ARE WE TO DO WHEN THOSE LIES COME INTO OUR LIFE?
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:51.110
  • PAUL SAYS WE NEED TO CONFRONT THEM WITH THE BELT OF TRUTH.
  • 00:06:51.120 --> 00:06:55.270
  • NOW, EXACTLY HOW DO WE GO ABOUT DOING THAT?
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:58.270
  • THIS MORNING, LET ME SHARE WITH YOU JUST FOUR
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:07:00.220
  • PRACTICAL WAYS THAT YOU CAN CONFRONT WRONG
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:04.050
  • THOUGHTS WITH THE BELT OF TRUTH
  • 00:07:04.060 --> 00:07:06.160
  • IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.020
  • NUMBER ONE, IF YOU WANT TO GAIN CONTROL OVER YOUR
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:12.000
  • THOUGHTS, YOU HAVE TO REFUSE TO FEEL GUILTY
  • 00:07:12.010 --> 00:07:15.160
  • ABOUT WRONG THOUGHTS.
  • 00:07:15.170 --> 00:07:17.150
  • REFUSE TO FEEL GUILTY ABOUT WRONG THOUGHTS.
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:21.130
  • YOU KNOW, I DON'T BELIEVE IN FALSE GUILT,
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:23.180
  • THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS FALSE GUILT.
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:25.280
  • BUT THERE IS SUCH A THING CALLED "MISPLACED GUILT."
  • 00:07:25.290 --> 00:07:29.010
  • MANY TIMES, WE FEEL GUILTY FOR THE WRONGS
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:31.030
  • THINGS, AND THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:33.000
  • WHO FEEL GUILTY BECAUSE THEY HAVE WRONG THOUGHTS
  • 00:07:33.010 --> 00:07:35.240
  • THAT COME INTO OUR MINDS.
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:37.120
  • NOW, THE TRUTH IS, THERE ARE SOME THINGS WE DO TO
  • 00:07:37.130 --> 00:07:40.000
  • STIMULATE WRONG THOUGHTS.
  • 00:07:40.010 --> 00:07:42.010
  • CERTAIN TELEVISION PROGRAMS,
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:43.190
  • MOVIES, INTERNET SITES WE MIGHT VISIT.
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:46.040
  • ALL OF THOSE THINGS CAN STIMULATE WRONG THOUGHTS,
  • 00:07:46.050 --> 00:07:49.090
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS, IF YOU WERE ALONE ON A DESERT
  • 00:07:49.100 --> 00:07:51.290
  • ISLAND, WITHOUT ANY TELEVISION,
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:53.290
  • OR WITHOUT ANY BOOKS, OR ANY LAPTOP,
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:57.090
  • YOU WOULD STILL STRUGGLE WITH WRONG THOUGHTS.
  • 00:07:57.100 --> 00:08:00.190
  • HOW DO I KNOW THAT?
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:02.000
  • BY READING THE BIBLE.
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:02.280
  • TURN OVER TO LUKE 4 FOR JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:08:02.290 --> 00:08:05.270
  • DID YOU KNOW JESUS HAD TO BATTLE
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:07.290
  • WITH WRONG THOUGHTS?
  • 00:08:08.000 --> 00:08:09.120
  • YOU SEE THAT IN LUKE 4.
  • 00:08:09.130 --> 00:08:10.240
  • NOW, THE SETTING OF LUKE 4,
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:12.120
  • IS JESUS IS 30 YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:14.260
  • HE HAS JUST EXPERIENCED THE SPIRITUAL HIGH POINT
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:17.180
  • OF HIS LIFE, HIS BAPTISM.
  • 00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:19.190
  • REMEMBER AT HIS BAPTISM, GOD THE FATHER SAID,
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:22.020
  • "THIS IS MY BELOVED SON, IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED."
  • 00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:26.170
  • JESUS WAS READY TO LAUNCH INTO HIS 3-YEAR MINISTRY
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:29.230
  • THAT WOULD END WITH HIS DEATH AND HIS
  • 00:08:29.240 --> 00:08:31.170
  • RESURRECTION HERE ON EARTH,
  • 00:08:31.180 --> 00:08:33.030
  • AND HIS ASCENSION INTO HEAVEN.
  • 00:08:33.040 --> 00:08:34.250
  • BUT BEFORE HE BEGAN HIS MINISTRY,
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:37.060
  • HE WENT THROUGH A TIME OF TESTING
  • 00:08:37.070 --> 00:08:39.070
  • IN THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:40.100
  • FOR 40 DAYS IN THE WILDERNESS,
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:42.240
  • JESUS WAS BOMBARDED WITH TEMPTATIONS THAT WERE ALL
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:47.000
  • CENTERED IN WRONG THOUGHTS.
  • 00:08:47.010 --> 00:08:49.240
  • "YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO BE SATISFIED,
  • 00:08:49.250 --> 00:08:52.190
  • JESUS," THE DEVIL SAID.
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:54.150
  • "WHY NOT TAKE THESE STONES AND TURN
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:56.180
  • THEM INTO BREAD?"
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:08:58.160
  • THAT WAS DISCONTENT, SAME WAY SATAN TEMPTS US.
  • 00:08:58.170 --> 00:09:01.260
  • OR HE SAID, "YOU KNOW, JESUS,
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:02.290
  • ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD CAN BE YOURS IF
  • 00:09:03.000 --> 00:09:05.140
  • YOU'LL SIMPLY BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP ME."
  • 00:09:05.150 --> 00:09:07.250
  • GREED, WANTING SOMETHING OUTSIDE OF GOD'S WILL
  • 00:09:07.260 --> 00:09:11.070
  • FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:11.080 --> 00:09:12.290
  • OR HE SAID TO JESUS, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:09:13.000 --> 00:09:14.180
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT TILL LATER FOR EVERYBODY
  • 00:09:14.190 --> 00:09:16.160
  • TO RECOGNIZE YOU AS THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:09:16.170 --> 00:09:18.190
  • WHY DON'T YOU GO AHEAD AND TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR
  • 00:09:18.200 --> 00:09:20.130
  • OWN LIFE NOW.
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.170
  • FORGET GOD'S TIMETABLE, YOU TAKE CHARGE!
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:24.110
  • JUMP DOWN FROM THE PINNACLE OF THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:25.290
  • AND EVERYBODY WILL RECOGNIZE
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:27.150
  • YOU AS MESSIAH."
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:30.050
  • LOOK AT LUKE 4:1-3,
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:31.230
  • "JESUS, FULL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, RETURNED FROM THE JORDAN
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:35.140
  • AND WAS LED AROUND BY THE SPIRIT IN THE WILDERNESS
  • 00:09:35.150 --> 00:09:38.100
  • FOR 40 DAYS, BEING TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL.
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:42.050
  • AND HE ATE NOTHING DURING THOSE DAYS,
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:43.290
  • AND WHEN THEY HAD ENDED, JESUS BECAME HUNGRY.
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:48.040
  • AND THE DEVIL SAID TO HIM"--HE WAS ALONE,
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:53.180
  • ISOLATED, TIRED, HUNGRY, THAT'S WHEN THE
  • 00:09:53.190 --> 00:09:57.180
  • TEMPTATION CAME.
  • 00:09:57.190 --> 00:10:00.150
  • WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU, IF YOU'RE GOING TO WIN
  • 00:10:00.160 --> 00:10:02.290
  • THE MIND GAMES, IF YOU'RE GOING TO SEIZE CONTROL OF
  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:05.180
  • YOUR THOUGHTS, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:07.030
  • REFUSE TO FEEL GUILTY WHEN THESE WRONG THOUGHTS
  • 00:10:07.040 --> 00:10:09.210
  • COME INTO YOUR MIND.
  • 00:10:09.220 --> 00:10:10.220
  • INSTEAD, SECONDLY, RESIST ALLOWING WRONG THOUGHTS
  • 00:10:10.230 --> 00:10:14.170
  • TO LINGER IN YOUR MIND.
  • 00:10:14.180 --> 00:10:16.190
  • RESIST ALLOWING THOSE WRONG THOUGHTS TO LINGER
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:19.150
  • IN YOUR MIND.
  • 00:10:19.160 --> 00:10:20.130
  • IN THAT PASSAGE WE READ JUST A MOMENT AGO,
  • 00:10:20.140 --> 00:10:22.090
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 10:5, PAUL SAID,
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:25.150
  • "WE ARE DESTROYING SPECULATIONS AND EVERY
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:28.190
  • LOFTY THING RAISED UP AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF
  • 00:10:28.200 --> 00:10:31.060
  • GOD, AND WE ARE TAKING EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE TO
  • 00:10:31.070 --> 00:10:36.120
  • THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST."
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:39.130
  • IT'S ONE THING TO HAVE THESE WRONG THOUGHTS
  • 00:10:39.140 --> 00:10:41.070
  • COME INTO YOUR MIND.
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:42.240
  • IT'S ANOTHER THING TO EMBELLISH THEM,
  • 00:10:42.250 --> 00:10:45.200
  • TO FANTASIZE ABOUT THEM.
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:48.210
  • CHARLES STANLEY TALKS ABOUT HOW TOEHOLDS IN OUR
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:52.270
  • LIFE CAN SUDDENLY BECOME FOOTHOLDS FOR THE DEVIL,
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:56.280
  • AND ULTIMATELY STRONGHOLDS
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:58.260
  • FOR THE DEVIL.
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:00.050
  • WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT IS THIS,
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:01.210
  • WHEN WE HAVE A WRONG THOUGHT THAT COMES INTO
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:03.030
  • OUR MIND, THAT'S A TOEHOLD.
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:06.100
  • BUT IF WE ALLOW THAT THOUGHT TO BE TURNED OVER
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:08.230
  • IN OUR MIND, IF WE ENHANCE IT,
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:11.030
  • IF WE FILL OUT THE DETAILS,
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:12.180
  • IF WE EMBELLISH IT, IF WE BEGIN SAYING TO
  • 00:11:12.190 --> 00:11:14.230
  • OURSELVES, "I WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO
  • 00:11:14.240 --> 00:11:16.270
  • EXPERIENCE THIS, OR THAT," WHICH WE KNOW IS
  • 00:11:16.280 --> 00:11:19.270
  • OUTSIDE GOD'S WILL FOR OUR LIFE.
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:22.060
  • SUDDENLY, THAT TOEHOLD BECOMES A STRONGHOLD,
  • 00:11:22.070 --> 00:11:25.200
  • A FOOTHOLD, IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:11:25.210 --> 00:11:27.090
  • AND ONCE THAT WRONG THOUGHT BECOMES A
  • 00:11:27.100 --> 00:11:28.270
  • FOOTHOLD, WE BECOME TO--WE BEGIN TO OBSESS
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:31.250
  • ABOUT THAT WRONG THOUGHT.
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:33.010
  • WE EVEN BEGIN MAKING PLANS ON HOW WE WOULD
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:36.200
  • CARRY OUT THAT WRONG THOUGHT,
  • 00:11:36.210 --> 00:11:38.270
  • THAT TEMPTATION.
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:40.170
  • AND ONCE THAT HAPPENS, ONCE A TOEHOLD HAS BECOME
  • 00:11:40.180 --> 00:11:43.280
  • A FOOTHOLD, THEN IT TURNS INTO A STRONGHOLD.
  • 00:11:43.290 --> 00:11:47.110
  • BECAUSE ONCE WE HAVE SO THOUGHT ABOUT THIS THING
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:50.100
  • OUTSIDE OF GOD'S WILL FOR OUR LIFE,
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:52.130
  • THAT WE FANTASIZE ABOUT IT,
  • 00:11:52.140 --> 00:11:54.070
  • THAT WE WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:55.220
  • EXPERIENCE IT, THAT WE MAKE PLANS TO EXPERIENCE IT,
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:59.240
  • WE BECOME SPIRITUAL ROAD-KILL.
  • 00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:02.060
  • BECAUSE SATAN KNOWS AT THAT POINT,
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:04.120
  • WHEN HE HAS THAT STRONGHOLD IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:06.280
  • ALL HE HAS TO DO IS DANGLE THAT BAIT OUT IN
  • 00:12:06.290 --> 00:12:09.150
  • FRONT OF US, FOR THAT TEMPTATION FOR WHICH WE
  • 00:12:09.160 --> 00:12:12.080
  • HAVE ALREADY PLANNED, AND WE BECOME HIS VICTIMS.
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:16.030
  • AND THAT'S WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT,
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:18.070
  • WHEN THESE WRONG THOUGHTS COME IN,
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:20.060
  • IS TO RESIST ALLOWING THEM TO LINGER
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:23.200
  • IN OUR MINDS.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:24.100
  • HOW DO WE DO THAT?
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:25.190
  • THAT LEADS TO NUMBER THREE,
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:27.080
  • WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE AND REPLACE WRONG THOUGHTS
  • 00:12:27.090 --> 00:12:31.200
  • WITH GOD'S THOUGHTS.
  • 00:12:31.210 --> 00:12:33.010
  • NOW, DOUBLE-STAR THIS, WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE AND
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:36.000
  • REPLACE WRONG THOUGHTS WITH GOD'S THOUGHTS.
  • 00:12:36.010 --> 00:12:40.170
  • LET'S SAY THAT BURGLAR MAKES HIS WAY
  • 00:12:40.180 --> 00:12:43.240
  • INTO YOUR HOUSE.
  • 00:12:43.250 --> 00:12:44.200
  • HE'S ABLE TO KNOCK DOWN YOUR FRONT DOOR.
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:47.200
  • YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER THAT,
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:50.090
  • BUT IF HE DOES GAIN ENTRY INTO YOUR HOME,
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:52.160
  • YOU'RE CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO INVITE HIM IN,
  • 00:12:52.170 --> 00:12:54.220
  • INVITE HIM TO SIT IN YOUR FAVORITE CHAIR,
  • 00:12:54.230 --> 00:12:56.140
  • FIX HIM A POT OF COFFEE, ENGAGE IN A LONG
  • 00:12:56.150 --> 00:12:58.240
  • CONVERSATION WITH HIM, AND INVITE HIM TO TAKE UP
  • 00:12:58.250 --> 00:13:01.070
  • RESIDENCE IN A SPARE BEDROOM,
  • 00:13:01.080 --> 00:13:02.220
  • ARE YOU?
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:03.170
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DO THAT.
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.100
  • INSTEAD, WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO IS,
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:07.020
  • IF HE GAINS ENTRY INTO YOUR HOUSE,
  • 00:13:07.030 --> 00:13:09.000
  • YOU'RE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO
  • 00:13:09.010 --> 00:13:11.020
  • GRAB HOLD OF HIM, TO SEIZE HIM,
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:13.180
  • AND TO GET HIM OUT OF YOUR HOUSE
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:15.040
  • AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:13:15.050 --> 00:13:17.180
  • NOW, THAT'S WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:13:17.190 --> 00:13:19.060
  • PAUL IS, IN 2 CORINTHIANS 10:5.
  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:22.030
  • HE SAYS, "WE ARE DESTROYING SPECULATIONS
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:24.290
  • AND EVERY LOFTY THING RAISED UP AGAINST THE
  • 00:13:25.000 --> 00:13:27.280
  • KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND WE ARE TAKING EVERY THOUGHT
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:31.140
  • CAPTIVE TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST."
  • 00:13:31.150 --> 00:13:34.090
  • ONCE THESE WRONG THOUGHTS ARE IN YOUR MIND,
  • 00:13:34.100 --> 00:13:37.050
  • THERE ARE TWO THINGS YOU NEED TO DO,
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.220
  • WRITE THIS DOWN.
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:39.220
  • YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE THEM AS WRONG THOUGHTS,
  • 00:13:39.230 --> 00:13:43.030
  • AND THEN REPLACE THEM WITH GOD'S THOUGHTS.
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:46.190
  • RECOGNIZE AND REPLACE.
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:49.080
  • YOU CAN'T DO JUST ONE OR THE OTHER,
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:51.050
  • YOU HAVE TO DO BOTH.
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:52.190
  • FIRST OF ALL, WHEN THESE THOUGHTS COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:13:52.200 --> 00:13:54.170
  • MIND, YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE,
  • 00:13:54.180 --> 00:13:56.080
  • "ARE THESE THOUGHTS--IS THIS FROM GOD,
  • 00:13:56.090 --> 00:13:58.160
  • OR IS IT FROM SATAN?"
  • 00:13:58.170 --> 00:14:00.140
  • NOW, HOW DO YOU KNOW IF A THOUGHT THAT COMES INTO
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:02.220
  • YOUR MIND IS FROM GOD OR SATAN?
  • 00:14:02.230 --> 00:14:04.070
  • REMEMBER THOSE FILTERS I GAVE YOU A FEW WEEKS AGO?
  • 00:14:04.080 --> 00:14:07.210
  • ASK YOURSELF, "IS THIS THOUGHT TRUE?
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:09.150
  • IS IT BASED ON GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:11.140
  • IS IT REPRESENT WHAT GOD'S BEST FOR MY LIFE IS?
  • 00:14:11.150 --> 00:14:14.150
  • IS IT TRUE?
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:16.080
  • DOES THIS THOUGHT MOTIVATE ME TOWARD FAITH
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:20.020
  • AND OBEDIENCE, OR TOWARD FEAR AND DISOBEDIENCE?"
  • 00:14:20.030 --> 00:14:23.190
  • NUMBER THREE, DOES THIS THOUGHT,
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:25.080
  • DOES THIS TEMPTATION IN ANY WAY CONTRADICT THE
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:27.240
  • CLEAR TEACHING OF GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:30.150
  • NOW, THE PROBLEM IS, MOST OF US STOP WITH THAT,
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:32.170
  • WE SAY, "OKAY, I RECOGNIZE THIS IS WHAT IS
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:35.090
  • A WRONG THOUGHT, AND THEREFORE,
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:37.000
  • I'LL JUST TRY TO RID MY MIND OF THIS THOUGHT.
  • 00:14:37.010 --> 00:14:40.110
  • I'LL DO EVERYTHING I CAN NOT TO THINK ABOUT THIS
  • 00:14:40.120 --> 00:14:43.100
  • PARTICULAR THOUGHT, THIS PARTICULAR TEMPTATION."
  • 00:14:43.110 --> 00:14:47.060
  • THAT IS ABSOLUTELY USELESS
  • 00:14:47.070 --> 00:14:49.110
  • IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 00:14:49.120 --> 00:14:51.060
  • HOW DID JESUS RESPOND?
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:52.290
  • DID HE TRY TO PUT THOSE THOUGHTS OUT OF HIS MIND?
  • 00:14:53.000 --> 00:14:55.020
  • "N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-NO, I DON'T WANNA HEAR IT,
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:57.120
  • I DON'T WANNA HEAR IT, SATAN!
  • 00:14:57.130 --> 00:14:58.090
  • N-N-N-N-NO!"
  • 00:14:58.100 --> 00:14:58.290
  • HE DIDN'T DO THAT, DID HE?
  • 00:14:59.000 --> 00:15:00.150
  • INSTEAD, HE RESPONDED TO THOSE WRONG THOUGHTS WITH
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:03.100
  • THE RIGHT THOUGHT.
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:04.080
  • HE QUOTED FROM SCRIPTURE, IN DEUTERONOMY,
  • 00:15:04.090 --> 00:15:06.090
  • AND SAID TO SATAN, "IT IS WRITTEN,
  • 00:15:06.100 --> 00:15:08.110
  • 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE.'" AND SO,
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:11.260
  • SATAN COMES AGAIN TO HIM, AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:13.080
  • "YOU KNOW, LORD, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT TO
  • 00:15:13.090 --> 00:15:16.060
  • HAVE THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD BECOME YOURS,
  • 00:15:16.070 --> 00:15:18.090
  • YOU CAN HAVE ALL OF THE KINGDOMS RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:20.090
  • IF YOU'LL SIMPLY BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP ME."
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:22.280
  • DID JESUS SAY, "I'M NOT GOING TO THINK ABOUT
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:24.200
  • THAT, I'M NOT GOING TO ALLOW THAT THOUGHT
  • 00:15:24.210 --> 00:15:26.040
  • INTO MY MIND"?
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:27.040
  • NO, INSTEAD, IN VERSE 8, HE QUOTED AGAIN FROM THE
  • 00:15:27.050 --> 00:15:29.040
  • BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY.
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:30.030
  • HE SAID, "IT IS WRITTEN, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE
  • 00:15:30.040 --> 00:15:32.100
  • LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'" AND THEN,
  • 00:15:32.110 --> 00:15:36.070
  • ONCE AGAIN, WHEN SATAN CAME AND TRIED TO GET
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:38.080
  • JESUS TO ACT INDEPENDENTLY FROM THE
  • 00:15:38.090 --> 00:15:40.100
  • WILL OF THE FATHER AND TO JUMP DOWN FROM THE
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:42.070
  • PINNACLE OF THE TEMPLE, IN LUKE 4,
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:44.120
  • JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:46.090
  • "IT IS SAID, 'YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:50.120
  • TO THE TEST.'" NOW, I'M GONNA SAY THIS AGAIN IN A
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:54.080
  • FEW WEEKS BECAUSE IT'S SUCH AN IMPORTANT POINT
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:56.230
  • WHEN WE GET TO THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:15:56.240 --> 00:15:58.290
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:15:59.000 --> 00:16:01.050
  • BUT, YOU KNOW, I GREW UP HEARING THIS STORY ABOUT
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:03.170
  • JESUS' TEMPTATION IN THE WILDERNESS,
  • 00:16:03.180 --> 00:16:05.150
  • AND HOW JESUS COMBATED THOSE TEMPTATIONS BY
  • 00:16:05.160 --> 00:16:08.160
  • QUOTING THE WORD OF GOD, HOW THE WORD OF GOD IS A
  • 00:16:08.170 --> 00:16:11.180
  • POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ATTACKS OF SATAN.
  • 00:16:11.190 --> 00:16:14.240
  • YOU KNOW THE REASON JESUS QUOTED SCRIPTURE?
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:16.270
  • IT WASN'T FOR SATAN'S BENEFIT,
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:18.280
  • IT WAS FOR JESUS' OWN BENEFIT.
  • 00:16:18.290 --> 00:16:21.190
  • IT WAS TO GIVE HIM THE STRENGTH TO RECOGNIZE THE
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:24.170
  • LIE AND REPLACE IT WITH GOD'S TRUTH,
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:27.090
  • SO THAT HE COULD ACT ON THAT TRUTH.
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:29.260
  • AND THAT'S THE MODEL HE'S MODELING FOR US.
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:32.140
  • WHEN WE HAVE THESE WRONG THOUGHTS,
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.100
  • TEMPTATIONS THAT COME INTO OUR LIFE,
  • 00:16:34.110 --> 00:16:36.020
  • WE NEED TO KNOW GOD'S WORD SO WELL,
  • 00:16:36.030 --> 00:16:39.260
  • THAT WE'RE ABLE TO CALL UP EXACTLY THE
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:41.280
  • APPROPRIATE SCRIPTURE FOR THAT TEMPTATION,
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:44.070
  • AND RECOGNIZE A WRONG THOUGHT,
  • 00:16:44.080 --> 00:16:46.070
  • AND REPLACE IT WITH GOD'S THOUGHT.
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:47.290
  • FOR EXAMPLE, LET'S SAY YOU'RE OVERWHELMED WITH A
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:51.120
  • PARTICULAR FEAR, ONE OF THOSE FEARS COMES INTO
  • 00:16:51.130 --> 00:16:54.040
  • YOUR MIND RELATED TO YOUR JOB,
  • 00:16:54.050 --> 00:16:55.250
  • OR TO YOUR FUTURE, OR TO YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:16:55.260 --> 00:16:58.000
  • AND YOU'RE PARALYZED WITH FEAR.
  • 00:16:58.010 --> 00:17:00.130
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO SAY, "I'M JUST NOT GONNA THINK
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:02.030
  • ABOUT THAT, I'M JUST NOT GONNA THINK ABOUT THAT."
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:03.290
  • INSTEAD, WE NEED TO TAKE THAT WRONG THOUGHT AND
  • 00:17:04.000 --> 00:17:06.030
  • REPLACE IT WITH GOD'S THOUGHT.
  • 00:17:06.040 --> 00:17:07.090
  • SECOND TIMOTHY 1:7, "FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:10.190
  • SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF LOVE,
  • 00:17:10.200 --> 00:17:12.130
  • POWER, AND OF A SOUND MIND."
  • 00:17:12.140 --> 00:17:14.150
  • OR PHILIPPIANS 4, "DON'T WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING,
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:16.210
  • BUT PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING."
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:19.210
  • REPLACING WRONG THOUGHTS WITH GOD'S THOUGHTS.
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:22.180
  • OR MAYBE YOU'RE CONCERNED
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:23.180
  • ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE.
  • 00:17:23.190 --> 00:17:25.280
  • MAYBE YOUR PROBLEM IS YOU HAVE TOO MUCH MONEY OR
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:29.240
  • YOU HAVE TOO LITTLE MONEY,
  • 00:17:29.250 --> 00:17:30.280
  • BUT THE PROBLEM IS YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT MONEY
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:33.040
  • WAY TOO MUCH.
  • 00:17:33.050 --> 00:17:35.020
  • WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THOSE THOUGHTS OF GREED THAT
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:37.160
  • COME INTO YOUR MIND?
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:38.260
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO SAY, "I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:40.060
  • THINK ABOUT MONEY."
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:41.020
  • INSTEAD, QUOTING 1 TIMOTHY 6:8-9,
  • 00:17:41.030 --> 00:17:44.250
  • "FOR WE HAVE BROUGHT NOTHING INTO THIS WORLD,
  • 00:17:44.260 --> 00:17:48.030
  • AND WE SHALL TAKE NOTHING OUT OF IT EITHER.
  • 00:17:48.040 --> 00:17:50.010
  • IF WE HAVE FOOD AND COVERING,
  • 00:17:50.020 --> 00:17:52.240
  • WITH THIS, WE SHALL BE CONTENT.
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:55.220
  • FOR THOSE WHO WANNA GET RICH FALL INTO A
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:58.180
  • TEMPTATION AND A SNARE, AND MANY FOOLISH AND
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:18:01.240
  • HARMFUL DESIRES, WHICH PLUNGE MEN INTO RUIN
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:04.270
  • AND DESTRUCTION."
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:07.040
  • OR MAYBE YOU SEE SOMEBODY OF THE OPPOSITE SEX TO
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:12.120
  • WHOM YOU'RE NOT MARRIED, AND YOU'RE ATTRACTED
  • 00:18:12.130 --> 00:18:15.040
  • TO THAT PERSON.
  • 00:18:15.050 --> 00:18:16.170
  • AND THEN YOU BEGIN TO FANTASIZE,
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:18.100
  • "I WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO BE
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:20.220
  • WITH THAT PERSON."
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:22.250
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO SAY, "I'M NOT GONNA THINK
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:24.130
  • ABOUT THAT ANYMORE."
  • 00:18:24.140 --> 00:18:25.250
  • YOU'VE GOTTA CONFRONT THAT WITH THE TRUTH OF
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:27.200
  • PROVERBS 6:32, "A MAN WHO COMMITS ADULTERY IS
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:32.280
  • LACKING IN SENSE.
  • 00:18:32.290 --> 00:18:35.110
  • HE WHO WOULD DESTROY HIS LIFE DOES IT."
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:39.270
  • YOU SEE THE PATTERN HERE?
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:41.250
  • RECOGNIZE WRONG THOUGHTS, REPLACE THEM
  • 00:18:41.260 --> 00:18:44.270
  • WITH GOD'S THOUGHTS.
  • 00:18:44.280 --> 00:18:46.160
  • THAT'S WHAT PAUL MEANS WHEN HE SAYS,
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:49.070
  • "CONFRONTING THOSE LOOSE THOUGHTS WITH THE TRUTH
  • 00:18:49.080 --> 00:18:52.120
  • OF GOD'S WORD."
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:54.130
  • NOW, THERE'S ONE FINAL, CRUCIAL PRINCIPLE HERE,
  • 00:18:54.140 --> 00:18:57.150
  • AND THAT IS TO REMEMBER THAT VICTORY IS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:19:02.270
  • YOU SEE, THROUGHOUT YOUR CHRISTIAN LIFE,
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:04.190
  • SATAN WILL TAUNT YOU WITH THE LIE THAT YOU REALLY
  • 00:19:04.200 --> 00:19:07.210
  • HAVE NO CONTROL OVER YOUR THOUGHTS,
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:09.160
  • MUCH LESS YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:09.170 --> 00:19:11.260
  • AS LONG AS YOU'RE A RESIDENT OF THIS PLANET,
  • 00:19:11.270 --> 00:19:14.020
  • EVEN IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:19:14.030 --> 00:19:15.200
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE IN
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:17.080
  • TO SATAN'S TEMPTATION.
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:18.160
  • BECAUSE AFTER ALL, YOU'VE GOT THAT SIN NATURE
  • 00:19:18.170 --> 00:19:20.130
  • INSIDE OF YOU, AND YOU REALLY DON'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:22.110
  • POWER, AND ONLY WHEN YOU'RE 6 FEET UNDER THE
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:24.120
  • GROUND WILL YOU HAVE VICTORY OVER SIN
  • 00:19:24.130 --> 00:19:26.160
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:27.290
  • FOLKS, DON'T FALL FOR THE LIE OF THE DEVIL.
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:31.190
  • JESUS CAME TO GIVE US FREEDOM OVER OUR SINS.
  • 00:19:31.200 --> 00:19:36.130
  • AND THAT'S WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT IN ROMANS 6:6-7.
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:39.130
  • HE SAID, "KNOWING THIS, THAT OUR OLD SELF WAS
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:42.020
  • CRUCIFIED WITH HIM, IN ORDER THAT OUR BODY OF
  • 00:19:42.030 --> 00:19:45.000
  • SIN MIGHT BE DONE AWAY WITH,
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:46.280
  • SO THAT WE WOULD NO LONGER BE SLAVES TO SIN,
  • 00:19:46.290 --> 00:19:50.040
  • FOR HE WHO HAS DIED IS FREED FROM SIN."
  • 00:19:50.050 --> 00:19:53.220
  • NOW, WHEN PAUL IS TALKIN' ABOUT THE PERSON WHO HAS
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.200
  • DIED IS FREED FROM SIN, HE'S NOT TALKING THE
  • 00:19:55.210 --> 00:19:58.100
  • PERSON WHO IS IN THE WOODEN BOX,
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:20:01.040
  • UNDERNEATH THE GROUND.
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:02.200
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO HAS
  • 00:20:02.210 --> 00:20:04.130
  • BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:20:04.140 --> 00:20:06.200
  • WE PORTRAY THAT EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT IN BAPTISM,
  • 00:20:06.210 --> 00:20:09.170
  • WHEN SOMEBODY WALKS INTO THAT BAPTISTERY,
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:11.190
  • AND AFTER COMING TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:20:11.200 --> 00:20:14.170
  • THE MINISTER LOWERS THEM INTO THE WATER,
  • 00:20:14.180 --> 00:20:17.140
  • WHICH REPRESENTS THE GRAVE,
  • 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:19.030
  • AND THEN BRINGS THEM UP OUT OF THE WATER.
  • 00:20:19.040 --> 00:20:21.190
  • AND WHAT A PERSON IS SAYING IS,
  • 00:20:21.200 --> 00:20:23.090
  • "NOW THAT I'M A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:20:23.100 --> 00:20:24.170
  • I HAVE DIED TO MY OLD WAY OF LIFE.
  • 00:20:24.180 --> 00:20:27.180
  • SIN NO LONGER HAS CONTROL OVER ME,
  • 00:20:27.190 --> 00:20:30.030
  • AND I'M BEING RAISED TO A WHOLE NEW WAY OF LIVING."
  • 00:20:30.040 --> 00:20:34.130
  • HOW IS SUCH A THING POSSIBLE?
  • 00:20:34.140 --> 00:20:36.060
  • IS IT BECAUSE THERE'S SOMETHING MAGIC IN THAT
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:37.250
  • WATER THAT GIVES PEOPLE POWER OVER SIN?
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:40.030
  • OF COURSE NOT.
  • 00:20:40.040 --> 00:20:41.190
  • BUT THE FACT IS, WHEN YOU TRUST IN JESUS AS YOUR
  • 00:20:41.200 --> 00:20:44.050
  • SAVIOR, NOT ONLY ARE ALL OF YOUR SINS,
  • 00:20:44.060 --> 00:20:46.210
  • MISTAKES, WASHED AWAY, PAST,
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:48.160
  • PRESENT, AND FUTURE, BUT THE MOMENT YOU TRUST IN
  • 00:20:48.170 --> 00:20:51.020
  • CHRIST, GOD PLACES IN YOU HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:55.070
  • AND THE SAME POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT LIFTED
  • 00:20:55.080 --> 00:20:58.000
  • JESUS OUT OF THE TOMB, THAT SAME RESURRECTION
  • 00:20:58.010 --> 00:21:01.140
  • POWER IS IN YOUR LIFE, TO GIVE YOU POWER OVER SIN.
  • 00:21:01.150 --> 00:21:06.290
  • YOU ARE NO LONGER IN SATAN'S CONTROL.
  • 00:21:07.000 --> 00:21:10.020
  • SATAN HAS NO MORE AUTHORITY OVER YOUR LIFE
  • 00:21:10.030 --> 00:21:13.150
  • THAN YOU CHOOSE TO ALLOW HIM TO HAVE.
  • 00:21:13.160 --> 00:21:16.250
  • REMEMBER, VICTORY IS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:20.140
  • NEIL ANDERSON, GREAT WRITER,
  • 00:21:20.150 --> 00:21:23.030
  • ILLUSTRATES THE TRUTH OF SPIRITUAL VICTORY OVER
  • 00:21:23.040 --> 00:21:25.270
  • SATAN WHEN HE RELATES AN EXPERIENCE
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:27.190
  • FROM HIS CHILDHOOD.
  • 00:21:27.200 --> 00:21:28.170
  • NOW THIS IS FUN, LISTEN TO THIS,
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:30.290
  • "WHEN I WAS A BOY ON THE FARM,
  • 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:33.140
  • MY DAD, MY BROTHER, AND I WOULD VISIT OUR
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:35.130
  • NEIGHBOR'S FARM TO SHARE PRODUCE AND LABOR.
  • 00:21:35.140 --> 00:21:39.060
  • THE NEIGHBOR HAD A YAPPY LITTLE DOG THAT SCARED
  • 00:21:39.070 --> 00:21:42.130
  • THE SOCKS OFF OF ME.
  • 00:21:42.140 --> 00:21:44.140
  • WHEN IT CAME BARKING AROUND THE CORNER,
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:46.070
  • MY DAD AND BROTHER STOOD THEIR GROUND,
  • 00:21:46.080 --> 00:21:49.100
  • BUT I RAN.
  • 00:21:49.110 --> 00:21:51.070
  • GUESS WHOM THE DOG CHASED?
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:54.060
  • I ESCAPED TO THE TOP OF OUR PICK-UP TRUCK,
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:56.130
  • WHILE THE LITTLE DOG YAPPED AT ME
  • 00:21:56.140 --> 00:21:58.010
  • FROM THE GROUND.
  • 00:21:58.020 --> 00:21:59.100
  • EVERYONE EXCEPT ME COULD SEE THAT THAT LITTLE DOG
  • 00:21:59.110 --> 00:22:02.080
  • HAD NO POWER OVER ME, EXCEPT WHEN I GAVE IN.
  • 00:22:02.090 --> 00:22:06.240
  • FURTHERMORE, IT HAD NO INHERENT POWER TO THROW
  • 00:22:06.250 --> 00:22:09.070
  • ME UP ON THE PICK-UP.
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:11.060
  • IT WAS MY FEAR THAT PUT ME UP THERE.
  • 00:22:11.070 --> 00:22:13.290
  • BECAUSE I CHOSE TO BELIEVE A LIE,
  • 00:22:14.000 --> 00:22:16.180
  • I ESSENTIALLY ALLOWED THAT DOG TO USE MY MIND,
  • 00:22:16.190 --> 00:22:20.200
  • EMOTIONS, MY WILL, AND MY MUSCLES,
  • 00:22:20.210 --> 00:22:23.000
  • ALL OF WHICH WERE MOTIVATED BY FEAR.
  • 00:22:23.010 --> 00:22:26.210
  • FINALLY, I GATHERED UP MY COURAGE ONE DAY.
  • 00:22:26.220 --> 00:22:29.100
  • I JUMPED OFF THE PICK-UP, AND I KICKED A SMALL ROCK
  • 00:22:29.110 --> 00:22:32.280
  • AT THE MUTT, AND LO AND BEHOLD, IT RAN."
  • 00:22:32.290 --> 00:22:39.040
  • LISTEN TO ME THIS MORNING.
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:41.080
  • ANY POWER THAT SATAN HAS OVER YOUR LIFE IS BECAUSE
  • 00:22:41.090 --> 00:22:46.200
  • YOU'VE CHOSEN TO ALLOW HIM TO HAVE THAT POWER
  • 00:22:46.210 --> 00:22:49.100
  • OVER YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:49.110 --> 00:22:50.220
  • THE TRUTH IS, SATAN HAS NO MORE CONTROL OVER YOUR
  • 00:22:50.230 --> 00:22:53.020
  • LIFE THAN THAT YAPPY LITTLE DOG.
  • 00:22:53.030 --> 00:22:56.000
  • AND AS NEIL ANDERSON SAYS,
  • 00:22:56.010 --> 00:22:57.250
  • "YOU DON'T HAVE TO OUT-SHOUT SATAN,
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:22:59.180
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO OUT-MUSCLE SATAN TO HAVE
  • 00:22:59.190 --> 00:23:01.240
  • VICTORY OVER HIM.
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:02.260
  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS OUT-TRUTH HIM."
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:07.170
  • BELIEVE, DECLARE, ACT ON THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:23:07.180 --> 00:23:14.090
  • AND YOU WILL WIN THE MIND GAMES WHEN SATAN COMES KNOCKING.
