  • - Jerry Dirmann: Sin shall not
  • 00:00:03.130 --> 00:00:04.090
  • have dominion over me.
  • 00:00:04.090 --> 00:00:06.220
  • See, this is the way we have to
  • 00:00:06.220 --> 00:00:07.200
  • think, and this is the way we
  • 00:00:07.200 --> 00:00:08.250
  • have to talk instead of sayin',
  • 00:00:08.250 --> 00:00:10.080
  • "I'm bound.
  • 00:00:10.080 --> 00:00:13.040
  • I'll never be free."
  • 00:00:13.040 --> 00:00:14.100
  • No, we need to start sayin',
  • 00:00:14.100 --> 00:00:15.180
  • "According to the Word of God,
  • 00:00:15.180 --> 00:00:17.020
  • - Jerry: The Lord says, "I not
  • 00:00:22.240 --> 00:00:23.150
  • only wanna restore what you've
  • 00:00:23.150 --> 00:00:25.030
  • - Jerry: "I wanna restore your
  • 00:00:29.090 --> 00:00:29.280
  • heart.
  • 00:00:29.280 --> 00:00:30.180
  • I wanna restore your confidence.
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:31.110
  • I wanna restore your joy, your
  • 00:00:31.170 --> 00:00:34.170
  • peace.
  • 00:00:34.170 --> 00:00:36.040
  • I wanna make an example out of
  • 00:00:36.040 --> 00:00:37.210
  • your life so that other people
  • 00:00:37.210 --> 00:00:38.200
  • can say, 'That's what I want God
  • 00:00:38.200 --> 00:00:39.240
  • - Jerry: One Word from God can
  • 00:00:44.120 --> 00:00:46.110
  • - Pastor Frank: When they heard
  • 00:01:10.050 --> 00:01:10.290
  • about that church outside, they
  • 00:01:10.290 --> 00:01:12.050
  • got all happy because, when they
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:14.030
  • come out, the church will be
  • 00:01:14.030 --> 00:01:15.240
  • - Pastor Isaac: And within only
  • 00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:20.230
  • this last month, we have been
  • 00:01:20.230 --> 00:01:21.270
  • able to add to the number, 15,
  • 00:01:21.270 --> 00:01:24.080
  • 15 more new converts, people who
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:25.290
  • were just invited to come and
  • 00:01:25.290 --> 00:01:27.040
  • fellowship with us.
  • 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:28.080
  • - Pastor Illian: Thank you for
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:32.230
  • sharing this program with us.
  • 00:01:32.230 --> 00:01:35.070
  • During the teaching, the Lord
  • 00:01:35.070 --> 00:01:37.050
  • spoke to me that we are
  • 00:01:37.050 --> 00:01:39.140
  • - Jerry: Well, hello.
  • 00:01:47.210 --> 00:01:48.080
  • This is Jerry Dirmann, and I'm
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:49.100
  • so glad you joined us today
  • 00:01:49.100 --> 00:01:51.040
  • because we're starting a
  • 00:01:51.040 --> 00:01:52.060
  • brand-new series called
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:53.290
  • "Victory."
  • 00:01:53.290 --> 00:01:55.090
  • And today's message is the
  • 00:01:55.090 --> 00:01:57.000
  • importance of knowing your
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:58.170
  • enemy.
  • 00:01:58.170 --> 00:02:00.110
  • So open your heart to receive,
  • 00:02:00.110 --> 00:02:01.090
  • - Jerry: Everybody together,
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:07.230
  • Hebrews 10:12-14, loudly and
  • 00:02:07.230 --> 00:02:09.240
  • together, let's read: "But this
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:11.090
  • Man, after he had offered one
  • 00:02:11.090 --> 00:02:13.160
  • sacrifice for sins forever, sat
  • 00:02:13.160 --> 00:02:16.150
  • down at the right hand of God,
  • 00:02:16.150 --> 00:02:19.120
  • from that time waiting till his
  • 00:02:19.120 --> 00:02:21.090
  • enemies are made his footstool.
  • 00:02:21.090 --> 00:02:23.210
  • For by one offering he has
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:25.140
  • perfected forever those who are
  • 00:02:25.200 --> 00:02:28.200
  • being sanctified."
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:30.130
  • I remember when I was in Bible
  • 00:02:30.130 --> 00:02:31.160
  • college, way back in the
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:33.240
  • mid-1980s, and this particular
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:37.150
  • passage just came alive to me,
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:41.230
  • that one Man--and it's capital
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:44.150
  • M, Jesus--one Man sat down at
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:48.080
  • the right hand of the Father.
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:49.190
  • In other words, after Jesus died
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:50.280
  • on the cross, after he was
  • 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:52.130
  • raised from the dead, he
  • 00:02:52.130 --> 00:02:53.250
  • ascended up into heaven, and the
  • 00:02:53.250 --> 00:02:55.120
  • Bible says that he sat down at
  • 00:02:55.120 --> 00:02:57.250
  • the right hand of the throne of
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:03:00.060
  • God, and then the Bible says
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:01.130
  • this: "from that time,
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:03.250
  • waiting..."
  • 00:03:03.250 --> 00:03:05.110
  • "From that time waiting--" well,
  • 00:03:05.110 --> 00:03:07.050
  • that was, like, 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:11.000
  • and the Bible says, "from that
  • 00:03:11.000 --> 00:03:12.070
  • time waiting--" and notice this.
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:14.110
  • It's gonna go on the screens
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.190
  • again-- "from that time waiting
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:17.150
  • until his enemies are made his
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:19.180
  • footstool."
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:21.090
  • Look at it again: "from that
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:22.030
  • time waiting until his enemies
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:24.200
  • are made his footstool."
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:26.130
  • Boy, that just really pierced my
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:28.080
  • heart.
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:29.210
  • I remember sometimes in between
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:31.270
  • classes or sometimes, you know,
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:33.290
  • I'd get tired in a class, and
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:35.160
  • I'd just slip out.
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:36.150
  • I'd go up to the roof there on
  • 00:03:36.150 --> 00:03:37.240
  • the building in Los Angeles
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.070
  • where Life Bible College used to
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:40.170
  • be, and I'd just open the Word
  • 00:03:40.170 --> 00:03:43.020
  • and just let the Lord speak to
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:44.220
  • me from the Word of God, and
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:46.070
  • this passage, I went over and
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:47.250
  • over, and it really struck me
  • 00:03:47.250 --> 00:03:49.170
  • that Jesus sat down.
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:54.030
  • All these enemies are still out
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:55.120
  • there, and he sat down.
  • 00:03:56.010 --> 00:03:59.010
  • What are you doin', sitting
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.040
  • down?
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:00.250
  • The Bible says "from that time
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:02.050
  • waiting, waiting until his
  • 00:04:02.280 --> 00:04:05.280
  • enemies are made his footstool."
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:11.010
  • "Waiting until his enemies are
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:13.130
  • made his footstool."
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:15.000
  • Well, who's supposed to do that?
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:17.180
  • Well, look at the next verse,
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:19.030
  • verse 14, "For by one offering
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:21.010
  • he has perfected forever those
  • 00:04:21.010 --> 00:04:23.190
  • who are being sanctified."
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:25.210
  • Boy, that just really struck me
  • 00:04:25.210 --> 00:04:27.080
  • that Jesus said, "Yeah, you
  • 00:04:27.080 --> 00:04:29.100
  • don't need me anymore to subdue
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:30.260
  • those enemies.
  • 00:04:30.260 --> 00:04:32.290
  • I've left you everything you
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:34.020
  • need: the armor of God, my name,
  • 00:04:35.100 --> 00:04:38.100
  • the same Holy Spirit that
  • 00:04:38.100 --> 00:04:39.230
  • empowered my life.
  • 00:04:39.230 --> 00:04:41.170
  • I've left you everything.
  • 00:04:41.170 --> 00:04:43.090
  • You go to my enemies and make
  • 00:04:43.090 --> 00:04:45.270
  • them my footstool."
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:48.170
  • You know, I like David in the
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:49.180
  • Psalms.
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:50.080
  • David understood that his
  • 00:04:50.080 --> 00:04:52.220
  • enemies were God's enemies.
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:55.130
  • Because you're a child of God if
  • 00:04:55.130 --> 00:04:57.020
  • you are born again, if you've
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:59.000
  • given your life to Jesus to
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.170
  • follow him and to do whatever he
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:01.250
  • says to do and you believe that,
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:04.180
  • when he died on the cross, he
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.220
  • paid for all of your sins.
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:09.020
  • If you put your faith in him
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:10.060
  • that way and follow him, then
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:11.210
  • let me tell ya, you are born
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:13.070
  • again.
  • 00:05:13.070 --> 00:05:15.080
  • You're born again.
  • 00:05:15.080 --> 00:05:17.230
  • And if you are born again, then
  • 00:05:17.230 --> 00:05:19.150
  • you have been given these tools,
  • 00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:21.140
  • these weapons, whether you
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:22.150
  • realize it or not.
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:24.080
  • And so the Bible says from the
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:25.230
  • time Jesus ascended to heaven
  • 00:05:25.230 --> 00:05:27.250
  • and sat down at the right hand
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.010
  • of God, from that time, he has
  • 00:05:29.010 --> 00:05:30.100
  • been waiting until his enemies,
  • 00:05:30.180 --> 00:05:33.180
  • who are your enemies, become his
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:35.200
  • footstool.
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:37.050
  • If you're God's child, then
  • 00:05:37.050 --> 00:05:38.280
  • anybody comin' against God's
  • 00:05:38.280 --> 00:05:40.040
  • children are God's enemies.
  • 00:05:40.040 --> 00:05:42.030
  • I tell you what.
  • 00:05:42.030 --> 00:05:42.230
  • You come against my children,
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:43.280
  • you become my enemy, amen?
  • 00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:48.060
  • And you come against God's
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:49.070
  • children, you become God's
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:50.140
  • enemy.
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:51.260
  • So anything attacking you,
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.090
  • comin' against you, that is an
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:55.010
  • enemy of God.
  • 00:05:55.010 --> 00:05:58.010
  • At the beginning of the year,
  • 00:05:58.010 --> 00:05:59.110
  • the Lord ministered to me and to
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:01.160
  • us this powerful conversation,
  • 00:06:05.000 --> 00:06:08.000
  • the very first conversation that
  • 00:06:08.000 --> 00:06:09.240
  • happened.
  • 00:06:09.240 --> 00:06:10.260
  • Actually, it was the very first
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:12.230
  • words that the human ear heard:
  • 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:17.120
  • "Be fruitful.
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:18.220
  • Multiply.
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:20.050
  • Fill the earth."
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:22.080
  • And then God said, "And subdue
  • 00:06:22.080 --> 00:06:24.120
  • it."
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:25.220
  • God never intended for us to be
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:28.280
  • subdued, but for us to have
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:31.190
  • victory over our enemies.
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:34.150
  • Now, I'm not talkin' about us
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:35.110
  • dominating each other, but
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:37.250
  • victory over anything that tries
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:39.160
  • to attack us.
  • 00:06:39.160 --> 00:06:40.290
  • God never intended for the
  • 00:06:40.290 --> 00:06:42.020
  • animal kingdom to rule over man.
  • 00:06:42.220 --> 00:06:45.220
  • And if anybody thinks that we
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:46.260
  • just worked our way to the top
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:48.130
  • of the food chain, you're
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:50.010
  • mistaken and misinformed.
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:53.040
  • We began there.
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:54.280
  • We were created to be there.
  • 00:06:55.110 --> 00:06:58.110
  • And from the very beginning, we
  • 00:06:58.110 --> 00:06:59.110
  • were told, "Subdue the earth."
  • 00:07:00.050 --> 00:07:03.050
  • But, you know, you've gotta know
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:04.080
  • your enemy.
  • 00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:05.270
  • You've got to know your enemy.
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.020
  • At the beginning of the year as
  • 00:07:07.020 --> 00:07:08.060
  • I was fasting and praying about
  • 00:07:08.060 --> 00:07:09.120
  • this theme, here's what the Lord
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.090
  • said about "subdue."
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:14.130
  • It is not the Lord's will for us
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:15.230
  • to be dominated and tormented by
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:17.220
  • our enemies.
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.030
  • The Lord says, "The days of
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:20.140
  • being overcome by your enemies
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:21.280
  • are over.
  • 00:07:21.280 --> 00:07:23.010
  • I'm raising you up and
  • 00:07:23.010 --> 00:07:24.060
  • strengthening you to overcome
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:25.140
  • your enemies and my enemies."
  • 00:07:25.140 --> 00:07:28.080
  • Notice they're the same enemies.
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:30.150
  • So over the next few weeks, I'm
  • 00:07:30.150 --> 00:07:32.200
  • gonna unpack this from the Word
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.110
  • of God.
  • 00:07:34.110 --> 00:07:34.270
  • I'm not only gonna share with
  • 00:07:34.270 --> 00:07:36.280
  • you who your enemies are, but
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:39.010
  • I'm gonna share with you how the
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:41.030
  • Bible says you should and can
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:43.230
  • overcome every one of your
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:45.140
  • enemies.
  • 00:07:45.140 --> 00:07:46.270
  • Look.
  • 00:07:46.270 --> 00:07:47.240
  • This is why we're in church.
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:49.020
  • We're not in church because we
  • 00:07:49.020 --> 00:07:50.140
  • don't have anything else to do.
  • 00:07:50.140 --> 00:07:52.080
  • We're in church because we have
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:54.040
  • access to something.
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:56.170
  • Let me say it another way.
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:07:57.140
  • We have access to someone and
  • 00:07:57.290 --> 00:08:01.010
  • all of his abilities, where
  • 00:08:01.010 --> 00:08:03.030
  • other people don't have that.
  • 00:08:03.030 --> 00:08:05.130
  • And we come here to find out
  • 00:08:05.130 --> 00:08:06.170
  • what belongs to us that will
  • 00:08:06.170 --> 00:08:08.280
  • benefit not only our lives but
  • 00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:11.210
  • God's purposes for our lives,
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:14.260
  • and you just can't get it out
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:16.040
  • there.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:17.010
  • You get it from God.
  • 00:08:17.010 --> 00:08:19.170
  • You get it from God.
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:21.070
  • And so today I'm gonna kick this
  • 00:08:21.070 --> 00:08:23.000
  • off, and I'm gonna share with
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:24.200
  • you this message called "Know
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:26.100
  • Your Enemy."
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:28.040
  • Know your enemy.
  • 00:08:28.040 --> 00:08:29.060
  • Know your enemy.
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:30.110
  • But then in the next few weeks,
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:32.060
  • I'm gonna share with you the
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:33.070
  • principles of how to win over
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:36.100
  • your enemy every time.
  • 00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:39.180
  • Every time.
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:40.210
  • Every time.
  • 00:08:40.210 --> 00:08:41.220
  • Let me give you six different
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:42.200
  • categories of your enemies.
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:46.200
  • Number one, Satan.
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:48.250
  • How many of you knew Satan was
  • 00:08:48.250 --> 00:08:49.150
  • an enemy?
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:51.060
  • He absolutely is.
  • 00:08:51.060 --> 00:08:52.090
  • Number two, sin and strongholds.
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:55.250
  • Sin and strongholds.
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:57.150
  • Number three, the flesh and the
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:59.200
  • carnal mind, the mind that is
  • 00:08:59.290 --> 00:09:03.010
  • not renewed, the mind that still
  • 00:09:03.010 --> 00:09:04.210
  • wants just to be selfish and
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:06.150
  • please yourself.
  • 00:09:06.150 --> 00:09:09.040
  • Number four, tribulations.
  • 00:09:09.040 --> 00:09:10.270
  • That just means havin' hard
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:11.220
  • times, just goin' through some
  • 00:09:11.220 --> 00:09:13.240
  • hard times in life.
  • 00:09:13.240 --> 00:09:16.050
  • Number five, persecution.
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:17.270
  • That's people problems.
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:20.270
  • Number six, and the last one:
  • 00:09:20.270 --> 00:09:23.050
  • the world.
  • 00:09:23.050 --> 00:09:24.100
  • And I wanna share with you what
  • 00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:26.070
  • I mean by "the world."
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:27.170
  • Let's start with number one,
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:28.180
  • Satan.
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:29.140
  • Everybody say, "Satan."
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:31.130
  • What's another term for Satan?
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:34.220
  • The devil.
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:36.250
  • The devil.
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:38.130
  • Satan, the devil.
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:40.150
  • Let me tell you what Jesus said
  • 00:09:40.150 --> 00:09:41.110
  • in John 10:10.
  • 00:09:41.110 --> 00:09:42.180
  • He said, "The thief does not
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:44.040
  • come except to steal, and to
  • 00:09:44.040 --> 00:09:45.210
  • kill, and to destroy.
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:47.100
  • I have come that they may have
  • 00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:48.160
  • life, and that they may have it
  • 00:09:48.160 --> 00:09:50.070
  • more abundantly."
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:51.070
  • Jesus just outlined right there
  • 00:09:51.070 --> 00:09:52.170
  • the difference between what God
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:54.000
  • wants to do in your life and
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:55.200
  • what the devil wants to do in
  • 00:09:55.200 --> 00:09:56.230
  • your life.
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:58.020
  • He said, "The thief doesn't come
  • 00:09:58.020 --> 00:09:59.010
  • except to steal, and to kill,
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:05.060
  • and to destroy."
  • 00:10:05.060 --> 00:10:07.090
  • Let me ask you a question: If
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:09.080
  • the FBI showed up at your house
  • 00:10:09.250 --> 00:10:12.250
  • later today and said, "We need
  • 00:10:12.250 --> 00:10:15.050
  • to talk to you.
  • 00:10:15.050 --> 00:10:15.280
  • May we come in?"
  • 00:10:15.280 --> 00:10:18.000
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:10:18.000 --> 00:10:18.200
  • And they said, "Have a seat.
  • 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:19.240
  • Say, listen.
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:21.000
  • Our intelligence has shown that
  • 00:10:21.000 --> 00:10:23.040
  • there is an attack coming on you
  • 00:10:23.040 --> 00:10:25.270
  • and your family this week, and
  • 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:30.200
  • they aim to completely destroy
  • 00:10:30.200 --> 00:10:33.050
  • your family."
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:36.180
  • Would you say, "Hey, look.
  • 00:10:36.180 --> 00:10:39.010
  • I wish I had time to talk to you
  • 00:10:39.010 --> 00:10:40.270
  • further.
  • 00:10:40.270 --> 00:10:41.280
  • I just have a busy week, so
  • 00:10:41.280 --> 00:10:43.140
  • thanks for comin'.
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:45.070
  • Have a nice day."
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:46.280
  • Or would you say, "What do I do?
  • 00:10:46.280 --> 00:10:49.230
  • What should we do?"
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:50.280
  • Right?
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:51.220
  • See, if you know that there is
  • 00:10:51.220 --> 00:10:53.150
  • somebody that is plotting,
  • 00:10:53.150 --> 00:10:55.130
  • strategizing, scheming to
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:11:01.080
  • destroy your life, wouldn't ya
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:03.070
  • think that you might take some
  • 00:11:03.070 --> 00:11:06.020
  • countermeasures, huh?
  • 00:11:06.020 --> 00:11:08.230
  • This is what Jesus said.
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:09.240
  • Jesus said, "You need to know
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:11.010
  • somethin' about the devil.
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:13.070
  • He's not hangin' around you just
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:15.110
  • to bother you.
  • 00:11:15.110 --> 00:11:17.040
  • He's not lookin' to be annoying.
  • 00:11:17.060 --> 00:11:20.060
  • He does not come except to
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:21.270
  • steal, and to kill, and to
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:24.070
  • destroy."
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:25.190
  • This is what the enemy does.
  • 00:11:25.190 --> 00:11:26.190
  • But Jesus said, "I got some good
  • 00:11:26.190 --> 00:11:27.280
  • news for ya.
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:28.250
  • I came that you may have life
  • 00:11:28.250 --> 00:11:29.190
  • and may have it more
  • 00:11:29.190 --> 00:11:31.100
  • abundantly," in other words, to
  • 00:11:31.100 --> 00:11:32.180
  • overcome him.
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:33.180
  • Listen to what Peter said in
  • 00:11:33.180 --> 00:11:34.170
  • 1 Peter 5:8.
  • 00:11:34.170 --> 00:11:35.250
  • He said, "Be sober, be
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:37.090
  • vigilant," in other words,
  • 00:11:37.090 --> 00:11:39.160
  • "Pay attention here to
  • 00:11:39.160 --> 00:11:40.150
  • spiritual things,"
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:42.090
  • "because your adversary
  • 00:11:42.090 --> 00:11:44.210
  • the devil walks about like a
  • 00:11:44.210 --> 00:11:46.250
  • roaring lion, seeking whom he
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:49.010
  • may," what?
  • 00:11:49.010 --> 00:11:50.230
  • "Devour."
  • 00:11:50.230 --> 00:11:51.190
  • Is he just lookin' to irritate
  • 00:11:51.190 --> 00:11:52.270
  • you?
  • 00:11:52.270 --> 00:11:53.260
  • Oh, no.
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:54.250
  • He's lookin' to devour.
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:57.140
  • And notice in verse 9 what Peter
  • 00:11:57.140 --> 00:11:58.290
  • said: "Resist him, steadfast in
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:01.080
  • the faith."
  • 00:12:01.080 --> 00:12:03.000
  • Did you know that most believers
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:04.010
  • don't know how to do that?
  • 00:12:04.010 --> 00:12:06.270
  • I said, most believers don't
  • 00:12:06.270 --> 00:12:08.140
  • know how to do that.
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:10.240
  • Here, the Bible says, "Resist
  • 00:12:10.240 --> 00:12:12.070
  • him," and most believers in
  • 00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:14.080
  • Jesus do not know how to do
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:16.020
  • that.
  • 00:12:16.020 --> 00:12:16.240
  • In fact, you get around a lot of
  • 00:12:16.240 --> 00:12:17.280
  • believers, and you start to talk
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:18.280
  • about the devil, and they wanna
  • 00:12:18.280 --> 00:12:21.110
  • say, "Hey, Pastor Jerry, shh.
  • 00:12:25.030 --> 00:12:28.030
  • He might hear you.
  • 00:12:28.030 --> 00:12:31.000
  • We don't wanna make him mad."
  • 00:12:31.000 --> 00:12:33.050
  • "Listen, Jack, he's already
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:34.190
  • mad!"
  • 00:12:34.190 --> 00:12:36.080
  • He's already mad.
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:38.230
  • That's why he's stealing,
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:40.040
  • killing, destroying.
  • 00:12:40.040 --> 00:12:42.010
  • He hates you.
  • 00:12:42.010 --> 00:12:43.090
  • You were made in the image of
  • 00:12:43.090 --> 00:12:44.210
  • God.
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:46.030
  • He's always wanted to be like
  • 00:12:46.030 --> 00:12:47.020
  • God, and he's not, but you are.
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:53.180
  • You were made like God, and he
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:57.090
  • hates that.
  • 00:12:57.090 --> 00:12:59.140
  • He's already mad.
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:01.070
  • "Yeah, but you don't wanna,
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:02.010
  • like, make him mad at you."
  • 00:13:02.010 --> 00:13:03.200
  • He's already mad at me.
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:06.030
  • "Yeah, but you don't wanna hear
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:06.290
  • him say--you sayin' these things
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:08.190
  • about him."
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:09.120
  • Yes, I do!
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:12.010
  • I want him to hear it.
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:13.200
  • I want him to know that I know
  • 00:13:13.200 --> 00:13:15.000
  • who he is, why he's come, and
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:17.290
  • that I have the authority to
  • 00:13:17.290 --> 00:13:19.260
  • overcome him.
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:22.050
  • Amen!
  • 00:13:22.050 --> 00:13:24.110
  • Oh, yeah!
  • 00:13:24.110 --> 00:13:25.210
  • See, that's one of his tactics
  • 00:13:25.210 --> 00:13:27.240
  • is to make you afraid so that
  • 00:13:27.240 --> 00:13:30.150
  • you close your mouth instead of
  • 00:13:30.150 --> 00:13:32.220
  • opening your mouth and doing
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.080
  • what Jesus said when Jesus told
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:35.280
  • those demons, "Be--" well, let
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:40.110
  • me say it in--let me Dirmannize
  • 00:13:40.110 --> 00:13:41.230

  • 00:13:41.230 --> 00:13:43.130
  • out!"
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:44.190
  • Isn't that right?
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:45.080
  • Jesus said, "Be quiet and come
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:46.160
  • out," but that means,
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:48.000
  • "Shut up and get out!"
  • 00:13:48.000 --> 00:13:49.130
  • Isn't that right?
  • 00:13:49.130 --> 00:13:50.060
  • Jesus just--I mean, with his
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:51.160
  • words and his authority,
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:53.130
  • confronted them.
  • 00:13:53.130 --> 00:13:54.110
  • But, you know, today most people
  • 00:13:54.110 --> 00:13:55.170
  • don't realize that you have to
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:57.100
  • address the devil with your
  • 00:13:57.100 --> 00:13:58.170
  • words.
  • 00:13:58.180 --> 00:14:01.200
  • I don't care if you're a mixed
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:03.140
  • martial arts expert.
  • 00:14:03.140 --> 00:14:06.130
  • You can't choke the devil out.
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:07.200
  • Isn't that right?
  • 00:14:07.200 --> 00:14:10.090
  • You can't choke him out.
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:11.290
  • You cannot submit him.
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:13.200
  • He's not gonna tap.
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:15.150
  • You have to deal with him in the
  • 00:14:15.150 --> 00:14:16.280
  • spirit.
  • 00:14:16.280 --> 00:14:18.120
  • Amen?
  • 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:19.180
  • Listen to what Paul said in
  • 00:14:19.180 --> 00:14:20.160
  • Ephesians 6:10, "Finally, my
  • 00:14:20.160 --> 00:14:22.020
  • brethren, be strong in the Lord
  • 00:14:22.020 --> 00:14:23.130
  • and in the power of his might."
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:25.220
  • Notice that's not physical
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:26.270
  • might.
  • 00:14:26.270 --> 00:14:27.230
  • That's God's might.
  • 00:14:27.230 --> 00:14:28.280
  • "Put on the whole armor of God,
  • 00:14:28.280 --> 00:14:30.120
  • that you may be able to stand
  • 00:14:30.120 --> 00:14:32.040
  • against the wiles of," who?
  • 00:14:32.040 --> 00:14:34.060
  • "The devil.

  • the darkness of this age,
  • 00:14:43.140 --> 00:14:45.120
  • against spiritual hosts of

  • wickedness in the heavenly

  • places."
  • 00:14:48.290 --> 00:14:50.000
  • But listen to what Jesus said in
  • 00:14:50.000 --> 00:14:51.070
  • Luke 10:19, "Behold," or check
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:53.010

  • power of the enemy, and nothing

  • shall by any means hurt you."
  • 00:15:00.280 --> 00:15:03.020
  • So, see, when Jesus came, Jesus
  • 00:15:03.020 --> 00:15:04.200
  • didn't come to make your life

  • you'll have faith in it and
  • 00:16:50.180 --> 00:16:52.130
  • speak it out with your mouth
  • 00:16:52.130 --> 00:16:55.030
  • against the adversary, he has to
  • 00:16:55.030 --> 00:16:56.240
  • flee from you.
  • 00:16:56.240 --> 00:16:58.210
  • James said, "Resist the devil,
  • 00:16:58.210 --> 00:16:59.290
  • and he will flee."
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:01.180
  • Let me get to this second one,
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:02.210
  • sin and strongholds.
  • 00:17:02.210 --> 00:17:04.110
  • Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages
  • 00:17:04.110 --> 00:17:05.270
  • of sin is death."
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:09.000
  • The wages of sin is death.
  • 00:17:09.000 --> 00:17:10.110
  • Well, there are different types
  • 00:17:10.110 --> 00:17:12.040
  • of death that the Bible talks
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:13.250
  • about.
  • 00:17:13.250 --> 00:17:14.180
  • One death is when your spirit
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:16.060
  • leaves your body, and your
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.150
  • physical body dies.
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:19.290
  • As the last verse in the book of
  • 00:17:19.290 --> 00:17:21.070
  • James chapter 2 says, "For as
  • 00:17:21.290 --> 00:17:24.290
  • the body without the spirit is
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:27.030
  • dead, so faith without works is
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:28.190
  • also dead."
  • 00:17:28.190 --> 00:17:31.030
  • And so when your spirit leaves
  • 00:17:31.030 --> 00:17:32.140
  • your body, it could be because
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:34.020
  • of sickness, could be because of
  • 00:17:34.020 --> 00:17:35.240
  • old age, but nonetheless, when
  • 00:17:35.240 --> 00:17:38.040
  • your spirit leaves your body,
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:39.140
  • your body dies.
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:41.020
  • Your body dies.
  • 00:17:41.020 --> 00:17:42.090
  • That's one kind of death when
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:43.190
  • you die from this world.
  • 00:17:43.190 --> 00:17:45.100
  • But the Bible talks about
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:46.130
  • something called the
  • 00:17:46.130 --> 00:17:47.180
  • "second death."
  • 00:17:47.180 --> 00:17:49.070
  • The second death.
  • 00:17:49.070 --> 00:17:50.190
  • The second death is for those
  • 00:17:50.190 --> 00:17:52.110
  • people that didn't overcome the
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:54.070
  • second death by making Jesus the
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:55.220
  • Lord of their lives and fighting
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:58.020
  • the faith to keep their faith in
  • 00:17:58.020 --> 00:18:00.020
  • Jesus.
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:02.190
  • The second death is for all
  • 00:18:02.190 --> 00:18:03.270
  • those people that either never
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:06.000
  • received Jesus or fell away from
  • 00:18:06.000 --> 00:18:07.280
  • Jesus, walked away from Jesus.
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:11.050
  • And the second death is what the
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:13.040
  • Bible describes as going to the
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:14.180
  • lake of fire.
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:16.240
  • So this says "The wages of sin
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:18.100
  • is death."
  • 00:18:18.100 --> 00:18:20.050
  • The wages of sin is death.
  • 00:18:20.050 --> 00:18:21.170
  • It goes on to say, "But the gift
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:22.260
  • of God is eternal life."
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:24.290
  • So Jesus came and died and paid
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:27.190
  • for our sins so that we wouldn't
  • 00:18:27.190 --> 00:18:29.140
  • have to pay for them because we
  • 00:18:29.140 --> 00:18:31.010
  • can't.
  • 00:18:31.010 --> 00:18:32.220
  • I said, 'cause we can't.
  • 00:18:32.270 --> 00:18:35.270
  • We don't have innocent blood
  • 00:18:35.270 --> 00:18:37.140
  • like he had.
  • 00:18:37.140 --> 00:18:39.070
  • "For the wages of sin is death,
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:40.070
  • but the gift of God is eternal
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:41.210
  • life."
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:42.130
  • And so if you accept Jesus, you
  • 00:18:42.130 --> 00:18:43.160
  • accept his payment for your sin,
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:45.070
  • and then you can skip that
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.170
  • second death.
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:48.130
  • Amen.
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.040
  • Now, of course, if Jesus doesn't
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:49.290
  • come back soon, we'll all
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:51.190
  • experience that first death, but
  • 00:18:51.190 --> 00:18:53.160
  • it's that second one that has
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:56.010
  • the sting, not the first one.
  • 00:18:56.010 --> 00:18:57.160
  • The first one, if you're with
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:18:59.160
  • Jesus, the Bible says, "To be
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:01.030
  • absent from the body is to be
  • 00:19:01.030 --> 00:19:02.110
  • present with the Lord."
  • 00:19:02.110 --> 00:19:04.090
  • And so that's a good thing.
  • 00:19:04.090 --> 00:19:05.240
  • In James 1:14, the Bible says,
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:07.120
  • "But each one is tempted when
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:08.240
  • he's drawn away by his own
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:10.010
  • desires and enticed.
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:11.220
  • Then, when desire has conceived,
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:13.230
  • it gives birth to sin, and sin,"
  • 00:19:13.230 --> 00:19:15.220
  • listen to this, "when it is
  • 00:19:15.220 --> 00:19:18.000
  • full-grown, brings forth," what?
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:20.290
  • "Death."
  • 00:19:20.290 --> 00:19:21.210
  • Let me just tell ya, there are
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:22.270
  • lots of things in life that are
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.150
  • sins.
  • 00:19:24.150 --> 00:19:26.140
  • There are lots that are not, but
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:27.200
  • there are lots of things that
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:28.270
  • are sin.
  • 00:19:28.270 --> 00:19:29.250
  • And a lot of people say, "Yeah,
  • 00:19:29.250 --> 00:19:30.210
  • but I like to do it."
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:31.240
  • Yeah, but the Bible says that's
  • 00:19:31.240 --> 00:19:32.250
  • sin.
  • 00:19:32.250 --> 00:19:34.240
  • Here's why God says not to sin,
  • 00:19:36.280 --> 00:19:39.280
  • because sin destroys.
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:43.060
  • Sin destroys.
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:44.020
  • "Yeah, but I like it."
  • 00:19:44.020 --> 00:19:45.020
  • I know, but it destroys.
  • 00:19:45.020 --> 00:19:46.220
  • Kids like to run out in the
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:47.240
  • street to chase their ball, but
  • 00:19:49.210 --> 00:19:52.210
  • parents say, "Nope, don't run
  • 00:19:52.210 --> 00:19:54.080
  • out in the street."
  • 00:19:54.080 --> 00:19:56.100
  • "But I like the ball.
  • 00:19:56.100 --> 00:19:58.160
  • I want the ball."
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:00.030
  • Right?
  • 00:20:00.030 --> 00:20:00.200
  • But, see, a parent has
  • 00:20:00.200 --> 00:20:01.180
  • understanding that the child
  • 00:20:01.180 --> 00:20:02.280
  • doesn't have.
  • 00:20:02.280 --> 00:20:04.080
  • And so the parent has to put
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:05.110
  • some guidelines on the child
  • 00:20:05.110 --> 00:20:06.150
  • because the child doesn't see
  • 00:20:06.150 --> 00:20:08.080
  • danger.
  • 00:20:08.080 --> 00:20:09.060
  • The child's very naive.
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:11.010
  • And in spiritual things, God
  • 00:20:11.010 --> 00:20:12.110
  • understands that we're very
  • 00:20:12.110 --> 00:20:13.230
  • naive.
  • 00:20:13.230 --> 00:20:14.200
  • We don't see the outcome of what
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:16.060
  • sin does to our lives and what
  • 00:20:16.140 --> 00:20:19.140
  • place it gives the devil.
  • 00:20:19.220 --> 00:20:22.220
  • And so we have to trust God and
  • 00:20:22.220 --> 00:20:24.040
  • his Word until we can grow up
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:26.010
  • spiritually and watch it play
  • 00:20:26.010 --> 00:20:28.020
  • out in other people's lives and
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:29.200
  • say, "Oh, man.
  • 00:20:29.200 --> 00:20:31.230
  • That's exactly what the Bible
  • 00:20:31.230 --> 00:20:33.060
  • said there.
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:34.080
  • I'm glad I didn't do that."
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:36.110
  • Or sometimes we look at our own
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:37.210
  • life: "Oh, that's exactly what
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:39.130
  • the Bible said.
  • 00:20:39.130 --> 00:20:41.020
  • I wish I hadn't done that."
  • 00:20:41.020 --> 00:20:42.150
  • Isn't that right?
  • 00:20:42.150 --> 00:20:43.210
  • See, you can learn the hard way,
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:44.210
  • or you can learn from the Word
  • 00:20:44.210 --> 00:20:45.290
  • of God.
  • 00:20:45.290 --> 00:20:47.040
  • We're in church today to learn
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:48.080
  • from the Word so we don't have
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:50.040
  • to learn the hard way.
  • 00:20:50.040 --> 00:20:52.020
  • But, see, sin gives place to the
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:54.000
  • devil, and it destroys.
  • 00:20:54.000 --> 00:20:55.280
  • Jesus said to a man that had
  • 00:20:55.280 --> 00:20:57.070
  • been healed in John 5:14, he
  • 00:20:57.070 --> 00:21:00.090
  • said, "See, you've been made
  • 00:21:00.090 --> 00:21:01.260
  • well."
  • 00:21:01.260 --> 00:21:02.210
  • Listen to this: "Sin no more,
  • 00:21:02.210 --> 00:21:04.140
  • lest a worse thing come upon
  • 00:21:04.140 --> 00:21:05.290
  • you."
  • 00:21:05.290 --> 00:21:07.100
  • Now, this guy had a physical
  • 00:21:08.020 --> 00:21:11.020
  • sickness, an ailment that had
  • 00:21:11.020 --> 00:21:14.010
  • been plaguing him all these
  • 00:21:14.010 --> 00:21:15.250
  • years, and Jesus healed him, but
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:17.230
  • then Jesus said, "Sin no more."
  • 00:21:17.230 --> 00:21:20.010
  • In other words, "You've been
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:21.020
  • sinning, and that's why that
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:22.070
  • thing was able to come on you."
  • 00:21:22.070 --> 00:21:24.030
  • See, sin gives the devil
  • 00:21:24.030 --> 00:21:26.090
  • permission to attack your life
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:27.270
  • because sin means you're not
  • 00:21:27.270 --> 00:21:30.080
  • following God.
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:31.060
  • "I'm disobeying God."
  • 00:21:31.060 --> 00:21:33.000
  • That means you're obeying the
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:34.040
  • devil.
  • 00:21:34.040 --> 00:21:34.240
  • That means you're making him
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:36.000
  • your leader, and so that gives
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:37.130
  • him an opportunity, and it gives
  • 00:21:37.130 --> 00:21:39.220
  • him permission to attack your
  • 00:21:39.220 --> 00:21:41.130
  • life.
  • 00:21:41.130 --> 00:21:42.100
  • So Jesus said, "Sin no more,
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:44.070
  • lest a worse thing come upon
  • 00:21:44.070 --> 00:21:45.220
  • you."
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:46.150
  • How many of you would like
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:47.080
  • somethin' worse to come on you
  • 00:21:47.080 --> 00:21:48.170
  • than what's already come on you?
  • 00:21:48.170 --> 00:21:49.290
  • Raise your hand if you'd like
  • 00:21:49.290 --> 00:21:50.290
  • that.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:52.080
  • Anybody in here?
  • 00:21:52.080 --> 00:21:53.010
  • "I want somethin' worse to come
  • 00:21:53.010 --> 00:21:53.260
  • on me than what I've already
  • 00:21:53.260 --> 00:21:55.020
  • experienced."
  • 00:21:55.020 --> 00:21:56.180
  • No, we don't want that.
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:21:57.220
  • Well, what did Jesus say?
  • 00:21:57.220 --> 00:21:58.240
  • Well, "sin no more, lest a worse
  • 00:21:58.240 --> 00:22:01.130
  • thing come upon you."
  • 00:22:01.130 --> 00:22:03.170
  • Amen.
  • 00:22:03.170 --> 00:22:05.070
  • See, so sin can allow things to
  • 00:22:05.070 --> 00:22:08.060
  • attack our lives, allow the
  • 00:22:08.060 --> 00:22:09.200
  • enemy to attack your life.
  • 00:22:09.200 --> 00:22:11.120
  • I love Romans 6:14, "For sin
  • 00:22:11.120 --> 00:22:13.060
  • shall not have dominion over
  • 00:22:13.060 --> 00:22:15.140
  • you, for you are not under the
  • 00:22:15.140 --> 00:22:17.070
  • law but under grace."
  • 00:22:17.070 --> 00:22:18.280
  • "For sin shall not have
  • 00:22:18.280 --> 00:22:20.020
  • dominion."
  • 00:22:20.020 --> 00:22:21.050
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:22:21.050 --> 00:22:22.010
  • Somebody says, "I can't stop
  • 00:22:22.010 --> 00:22:22.180
  • sinning.
  • 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:23.010
  • I can't stop sinning."
  • 00:22:23.010 --> 00:22:24.140
  • The Bible says, "Yes, you can
  • 00:22:24.140 --> 00:22:25.260
  • stop sinning because you're not
  • 00:22:25.260 --> 00:22:27.270
  • just under the law.
  • 00:22:27.270 --> 00:22:30.030
  • You have received the grace of
  • 00:22:30.030 --> 00:22:32.010
  • God, which starts off forgiving
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:33.160
  • you, but also the grace
  • 00:22:33.160 --> 00:22:35.070
  • strengthens you with the power
  • 00:22:35.070 --> 00:22:37.150
  • of the Holy Spirit to be able to
  • 00:22:37.150 --> 00:22:39.130
  • overcome that sin and not allow
  • 00:22:39.130 --> 00:22:41.150
  • it to destroy your life."
  • 00:22:41.150 --> 00:22:44.020
  • Amen.
  • 00:22:44.020 --> 00:22:45.130
  • You know, in these days, there's
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:46.170
  • so many people, because of the
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:47.270
  • modern-day technology, so many
  • 00:22:47.270 --> 00:22:50.070
  • people that are addicted to
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:51.160
  • pornography and such.
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:54.180
  • I mean, tons.
  • 00:22:54.180 --> 00:22:56.200
  • Tons.
  • 00:22:56.200 --> 00:22:57.120
  • Statistics would say that half
  • 00:22:57.120 --> 00:22:58.260
  • the room or more here would be
  • 00:22:58.260 --> 00:23:00.180
  • addicted to pornography and
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:03.040
  • such, and I can tell ya this:
  • 00:23:03.040 --> 00:23:04.120
  • Most people who are, hate it.
  • 00:23:04.120 --> 00:23:06.100
  • They don't wanna be.
  • 00:23:06.100 --> 00:23:08.200
  • They don't wanna be.
  • 00:23:09.090 --> 00:23:12.090
  • I remember when I was bound with
  • 00:23:12.090 --> 00:23:13.060
  • lust.
  • 00:23:13.060 --> 00:23:15.000
  • I hated it, but I was still
  • 00:23:15.000 --> 00:23:16.260
  • bound.
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:20.010
  • I wanted to get free, but I
  • 00:23:20.010 --> 00:23:21.100
  • wasn't free.
  • 00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:23.140
  • I called out to God many times,
  • 00:23:23.140 --> 00:23:25.280
  • asked him to forgive me, but I
  • 00:23:25.280 --> 00:23:27.010
  • was still bound, see, because
  • 00:23:27.010 --> 00:23:28.270
  • these are--these things are
  • 00:23:28.270 --> 00:23:31.010
  • spiritual.
  • 00:23:31.010 --> 00:23:31.260
  • They get a hold of your heart.
  • 00:23:31.260 --> 00:23:33.270
  • They get a hold of your
  • 00:23:33.270 --> 00:23:34.200
  • emotions, and the enemy sets you
  • 00:23:34.200 --> 00:23:36.170
  • up to fail, sets you up to fall,
  • 00:23:37.020 --> 00:23:40.020
  • and God knows that.
  • 00:23:40.020 --> 00:23:41.210
  • And so part of what Jesus did is
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:42.260
  • to bring grace to your life,
  • 00:23:43.140 --> 00:23:46.140
  • ability to your life, strength
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:47.270
  • to your life, forgiveness to get
  • 00:23:47.270 --> 00:23:49.120
  • rid of all that guilt that
  • 00:23:49.120 --> 00:23:51.130
  • drives ya into more sin, and to
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:23:54.000
  • bring freedom to you so that you
  • 00:23:54.000 --> 00:23:56.150
  • can overcome.
  • 00:23:56.150 --> 00:23:58.090
  • So he says, "For sin shall not
  • 00:23:58.090 --> 00:23:59.190
  • have dominion over you."
  • 00:23:59.190 --> 00:24:01.280
  • Praise God.
  • 00:24:01.280 --> 00:24:03.100
  • I said, praise God!
  • 00:24:03.100 --> 00:24:05.000
  • Sin shall not--just say this out
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:06.220
  • loud: "Sin shall not have
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:09.010
  • dominion over me."
  • 00:24:09.080 --> 00:24:12.080
  • Say it all together: "Sin shall
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:14.170
  • not have dominion over me."
  • 00:24:14.170 --> 00:24:17.020
  • Say it again: "Sin shall not
  • 00:24:17.020 --> 00:24:19.040
  • have dominion over me."
  • 00:24:19.060 --> 00:24:22.060
  • See, this is the way we have to
  • 00:24:22.060 --> 00:24:23.050
  • think, and this is the way we
  • 00:24:23.050 --> 00:24:24.120
  • have to talk instead of sayin',
  • 00:24:24.120 --> 00:24:25.200
  • "I'm bound.
  • 00:24:25.200 --> 00:24:28.160
  • I'll never be free."
  • 00:24:28.160 --> 00:24:29.220
  • No.
  • 00:24:29.220 --> 00:24:30.080
  • We need to start sayin',
  • 00:24:30.080 --> 00:24:31.140
  • "According to the Word of God, I
  • 00:24:31.140 --> 00:24:32.190
  • - Jerry: Well, I wanna thank
  • 00:24:37.200 --> 00:24:38.080
  • you for joining me today for
  • 00:24:38.080 --> 00:24:39.100
  • this word about victory and
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:41.140
  • knowing your enemy.
  • 00:24:41.140 --> 00:24:43.070
  • God really does want you to have
  • 00:24:43.070 --> 00:24:44.200
  • victory over your enemies and
  • 00:24:44.200 --> 00:24:46.080
  • over everything that stands
  • 00:24:46.080 --> 00:24:47.200
  • against you and the amazing plan
  • 00:24:47.200 --> 00:24:49.280
  • that God has for your life.
