  • I'm expecting something powerful.

  • I'm expecting God to keep his promise!
  • 00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:11.070
  • I'm expecting to walk away healthier, better, stronger
  • 00:00:11.080 --> 00:00:16.000

  • 00:00:36.130 --> 00:00:41.120
  • Gregory Dickow: Jesus is the lifter of our head, and I
  • 00:00:41.130 --> 00:00:44.270
  • want to talk about a particular expectation.
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:48.070
  • Talk about how when Jesus lifted us, when he lifts lifts us,
  • 00:00:48.080 --> 00:00:54.000
  • Psalm 3:3 says, "But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,
  • 00:00:54.010 --> 00:00:58.250
  • You're the glory," my glory, "and the One who lifts my head."
  • 00:00:58.260 --> 00:01:02.270
  • Say, "He's the one who lifts my head."
  • 00:01:02.280 --> 00:01:06.110
  • So when he lifts our head, we talked about three things that
  • 00:01:06.120 --> 00:01:09.140
  • he lifts in our lives.
  • 00:01:09.150 --> 00:01:11.210
  • He lifts our emotions, he lifts our expectations.
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:16.160
  • When it says he's the lifter of our head, what's in our head?
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:20.000
  • That's where our emotions come from, that's where our
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:22.070
  • expectations come from, that's where our vision comes from.
  • 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:25.180
  • You see, he is the lifter of our head.
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:28.140
  • He lifts up our emotions when they're down.
  • 00:01:28.150 --> 00:01:31.200
  • He lifts up our expectations, to expect more and to expect
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:36.040
  • correctly, to have the right expectation.
  • 00:01:36.050 --> 00:01:38.280
  • And he lifts up our vision.
  • 00:01:38.290 --> 00:01:40.240
  • We look up and we see that God wants to do far
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:44.050
  • above and beyond all that we can ask or think.
  • 00:01:44.060 --> 00:01:48.100
  • So when the Bible says he's the lifter of our head, I want
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:51.180
  • you to see it like this.
  • 00:01:51.190 --> 00:01:53.100
  • It's three things.
  • 00:01:53.110 --> 00:01:54.210
  • It's probably more than these three things.
  • 00:01:54.220 --> 00:01:56.020
  • It's way more.
  • 00:01:56.030 --> 00:01:57.130
  • But these are the three that I've broken it down into: That
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:59.200
  • he lifts your emotions, he lifts your expectations, and he lifts
  • 00:01:59.210 --> 00:02:04.010
  • your vision.
  • 00:02:04.020 --> 00:02:05.110
  • And we began to talk about what to expect last week.
  • 00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:09.050
  • And I want to--this is where I'm going to take it deeper
  • 00:02:09.060 --> 00:02:12.050
  • in one particular expectation.
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:13.270
  • What we said expect to come out of your darkest hour.
  • 00:02:13.280 --> 00:02:18.020
  • Expect to come out of your darkest time.
  • 00:02:18.030 --> 00:02:20.110
  • He's lifter of your head.
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:21.250
  • So we need to set our expectations just like we set
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:26.140
  • the thermostat on a certain temperature and everything rises
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:30.130
  • to that setting that we set it at.
  • 00:02:30.140 --> 00:02:32.030
  • That's how expectation works.
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:33.270
  • When you set your expectation on specific things, then
  • 00:02:33.280 --> 00:02:37.260
  • everything in your life rises or falls based
  • 00:02:37.270 --> 00:02:41.170
  • on that expectation.
  • 00:02:41.180 --> 00:02:43.170
  • If you expect people to mistreat you all the time, you wake
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:45.150
  • up every day, "Man, I'm expecting people to mistreat me.
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:47.230
  • People always treat me bad. People always treat me bad.
  • 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:50.140
  • People always treat me bad."
  • 00:02:50.150 --> 00:02:51.250
  • What have you done? What have you done?
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:54.150
  • You have set the thermostat on people always
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:02:55.260
  • treating you bad.
  • 00:02:55.270 --> 00:02:57.060
  • You've created an environment where the mechanics of your
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:58.200
  • life, the mechanics of the atmosphere, the mechanics
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:01.060
  • of the environment all rise to the level
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:03.280
  • of your expectation.
  • 00:03:03.290 --> 00:03:05.280
  • So if you're expecting people to treat you wrong, that's
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.200
  • exactly what's gonna happen because that's the vibes that
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:10.050
  • you're gonna create, and we are powerful people.
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:12.150
  • Our words have power.
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:13.260
  • Our emotions have power.
  • 00:03:13.270 --> 00:03:15.060
  • Our expectations have power.
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:17.030
  • So when you set your expectation on, "I'm expecting God to be
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:20.220
  • the lifter of my head.
  • 00:03:20.230 --> 00:03:22.030
  • He's gonna lift me out of my darkest hour.
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:24.080
  • He's going to lift me out of my wilderness experience.
  • 00:03:24.090 --> 00:03:27.050
  • He's gonna lift me out of my desert."
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:29.180
  • That's what we talked about last week.
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:31.030
  • He's going to lift you out of your darkest time,
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:33.020
  • he's going to lift you out of the desert or lift you
  • 00:03:33.030 --> 00:03:36.020
  • out of the wilderness experience.
  • 00:03:36.030 --> 00:03:39.110
  • And number three, and this is what I really want to focus on,
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:43.150
  • that we can expect God to turn the curse into a blessing.
  • 00:03:43.160 --> 00:03:48.230
  • We can expect God to turn the curse into a blessing.
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:52.050
  • And I'm going to talk about that a little bit in detail.
  • 00:03:52.060 --> 00:03:54.200
  • But look at Deuteronomy chapter 23, verse 5, "Nevertheless
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:59.050
  • the Lord your God was not willing to listen to Balaam,
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:04.180
  • but the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing," why?
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:10.190
  • "Because the Lord your God loves you."
  • 00:04:11.180 --> 00:04:15.210
  • Now, we've been talking about love and that love is
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:18.240
  • God's nature, and that's what we should expect.
  • 00:04:18.250 --> 00:04:21.270
  • Expect Jeremiah31, verse 3-4, what does it say in the Message
  • 00:04:21.280 --> 00:04:26.260
  • Bible, if you guys remember?
  • 00:04:26.270 --> 00:04:28.070
  • Expect love, love, and more love.
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:32.120
  • But what does love do?
  • 00:04:32.130 --> 00:04:34.220
  • Here in Deuteronomy 23, verse 5, this is what love does.
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:39.140
  • He said, "The Lord was not willing to listen to Balaam."
  • 00:04:39.150 --> 00:04:42.260
  • Balaam was a false prophet trying to declare a curse
  • 00:04:42.270 --> 00:04:47.170
  • over the people of God.
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:50.140
  • And God said, "I'm not going to listen to anyone tryin'
  • 00:04:50.150 --> 00:04:53.110
  • to put a curse on you.
  • 00:04:53.120 --> 00:04:54.250
  • I turn the curse into a blessing because, because, because."
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:05:00.270
  • Whenever you see a because you want to see what's the cause
  • 00:05:01.110 --> 00:05:04.140
  • of it being?
  • 00:05:04.150 --> 00:05:05.250
  • Because.
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:07.050
  • What is the cause that it be?
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:12.130
  • Why will he turn the curse into a blessing?
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:15.290
  • Oh, I know why.
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:17.150
  • Because you're so holy, because you've been so good, because you
  • 00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:23.010
  • crossed all your Ts dotted all your Is,
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:25.240
  • because you were faithful.
  • 00:05:25.250 --> 00:05:30.040
  • See, some of you aren't sure.
  • 00:05:30.050 --> 00:05:33.040
  • See, let me explain something to you.
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:36.140
  • Everything that I just mentioned, being faithful--
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:41.080
  • not necessarily everything, but the concepts of being
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.170
  • faithful, being good, being Godly, being holy,
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:48.250
  • those are all good things.
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:50.280
  • That's called moral virtue or moral excellence, the Bible
  • 00:05:50.290 --> 00:05:56.050
  • calls it.
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:57.150
  • It's called moral excellence.
  • 00:05:57.160 --> 00:05:58.260
  • But moral excellence in the Bible is the fruit
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:02.130
  • of the spirit, not the root.
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:04.160
  • It's the fruit of the blessing, not the root of the blessing.
  • 00:06:04.170 --> 00:06:07.290
  • Moral virtue flows--moral virtue flows from God's goodness
  • 00:06:08.000 --> 00:06:13.280
  • working in you.
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.090
  • And so when we get ahold of, when we get ahold of this is
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:19.110
  • that the reason, the cause of why God blesses us and turns
  • 00:06:19.120 --> 00:06:24.220
  • the curse into a blessing--
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:26.020
  • And now we can expect every day the blessing rather than curse--
  • 00:06:26.030 --> 00:06:30.030
  • The reason why God does that is because He loves us.
  • 00:06:30.040 --> 00:06:34.020
  • It says it right here, "He turned the curse into a blessing
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:37.280
  • because the Lord loves you."
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:42.190
  • Because the Lord loves you.
  • 00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:45.200
  • This is love. This is love, folks.
  • 00:06:45.210 --> 00:06:51.090
  • The cross is love.
  • 00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:53.260
  • That's why Paul said-- I want to show you this.
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:56.060
  • If you have your Bible, look here and I want you to see this
  • 00:06:56.070 --> 00:06:58.240
  • in 1 Corinthians chapter 2.
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:07:00.290
  • This is why Paul says, in 1 Corinthians chapter 2, verse 2.
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:06.000
  • Now Paul says this.
  • 00:07:06.010 --> 00:07:07.220
  • He said, "For I determined to know nothing among you."
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:13.120
  • So he's writing to the Corinthians, and he said,
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:19.120
  • "I don't want to know anything among you.
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:25.050
  • I'm not here to talk to you about anything.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:28.290
  • I don't want to know that you know and you have knowledge
  • 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:31.220
  • of all the things about the Book of Revelation or all the things
  • 00:07:31.230 --> 00:07:34.250
  • about the Book of Daniel, or you could recite, you know, all
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:39.240
  • the names of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation."
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:42.290
  • He said, "I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:46.270
  • Christ and Him crucified."
  • 00:07:46.280 --> 00:07:49.080
  • Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:51.200
  • Why does he--
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:53.010
  • Doesn't he want to know whether they got some sin in their life?
  • 00:07:53.020 --> 00:07:55.110
  • Doesn't he want to know whether they're morally good?
  • 00:07:55.120 --> 00:07:58.040
  • Doesn't he want to know if they'd been praying enough?
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:08:00.080
  • Doesn't he want to know if they'd been fasting enough?
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:02.040
  • Doesn't he want to know if they'd been evangelizing enough?
  • 00:08:02.050 --> 00:08:05.020
  • No, because if they are focused on Jesus Christ and Him
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:10.220
  • crucified, then out of that realization and revelation that
  • 00:08:10.230 --> 00:08:16.010
  • everything begins and ends at the cross--
  • 00:08:16.020 --> 00:08:19.050
  • Your new life begins at the cross your old life ends
  • 00:08:19.060 --> 00:08:23.240
  • at the cross.
  • 00:08:23.250 --> 00:08:25.050
  • Hope begins at the cross, hopelessness ends at the cross.
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:31.010
  • Fear ends at the cross, faith begins at the cross.
  • 00:08:31.020 --> 00:08:35.210
  • The curse ends at the cross, the blessing begins
  • 00:08:35.220 --> 00:08:39.210
  • at the cross.
  • 00:08:39.220 --> 00:08:42.160
  • Poverty ends at the cross, abundance and God's provision
  • 00:08:42.170 --> 00:08:47.130
  • begins at the cross.
  • 00:08:47.140 --> 00:08:49.030
  • Sin ends at the cross, righteousness begins
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:52.240
  • at the cross.
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:56.010
  • Sickness ends at the cross, healing begins at the cross.
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:09:02.040
  • The cross.
  • 00:09:03.040 --> 00:09:04.140
  • That's why Jesus said, "I don't want to know anything
  • 00:09:04.150 --> 00:09:06.140
  • among you--"
  • 00:09:06.150 --> 00:09:07.250
  • That's why Paul said, "I don't want to know anything among you
  • 00:09:07.260 --> 00:09:09.050
  • except Jesus Christ and Him crucified."
  • 00:09:09.060 --> 00:09:10.230
  • And he even said, "I know nothing among you."
  • 00:09:10.240 --> 00:09:13.210
  • He didn't even come to give them all the knowledge he had.
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:16.220
  • He used to be a Pharisee.
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:18.170
  • He knows all of the laws.
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.080
  • He knows all of the commandments.
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.000
  • He kept most of them.
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:23.130
  • He was of the tribe of Benjamin.
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:25.080
  • He was a Pharisee.
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:26.210
  • He was the most religious of the Jewish people,
  • 00:09:26.220 --> 00:09:29.150
  • and yet in Philippians chapter 3, verse 6, he said, "Look, I've
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:34.150
  • done all these things.
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:37.000
  • As to zeal, I was a persecutor of the church;
  • 00:09:37.010 --> 00:09:39.050
  • as to righteousness, which is in the law,
  • 00:09:39.060 --> 00:09:41.020
  • I was found blameless."
  • 00:09:41.030 --> 00:09:43.030
  • Verse 7 he says, "And whatever things were gained to me, those
  • 00:09:43.040 --> 00:09:46.230
  • things I've counted as loss for the sake of Christ."
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:50.130
  • More than that, he says, "I count all things to be loss."
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:56.110
  • In other words, none of them matter.
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:10:00.070
  • In the view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus,
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:03.260
  • my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things.
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:07.120
  • He's not talkin' about he lost healing, he lost deliverance, he
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:12.110
  • lost money for the sake of Jesus, no!
  • 00:10:12.120 --> 00:10:15.160
  • He's saying, "All the things I just listed, all my righteous
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:19.130
  • works, my zeal, my persecution of the church, my works
  • 00:10:19.140 --> 00:10:24.200
  • of the law, all those things, I have suffered the loss of all
  • 00:10:24.210 --> 00:10:29.010
  • of them.
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:30.120
  • None of them help me reach God, and none of them caused God
  • 00:10:30.130 --> 00:10:34.190
  • to reach me."
  • 00:10:34.200 --> 00:10:36.120
  • He said, "I count them all loss and count them but rubbish, that
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:41.070
  • I might gain Christ, and may be found in him."
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:45.140
  • Look at what he says.
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:46.240
  • "Not having a righteousness of my own derived from the law
  • 00:10:46.250 --> 00:10:51.180
  • but that which is through faith in Christ."
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:55.180
  • A righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith.
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:11:01.210
  • On the basis of faith.
  • 00:11:02.260 --> 00:11:05.140
  • That I may be found.
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:07.090
  • "That I may know him," he says.
  • 00:11:07.100 --> 00:11:10.010
  • "And the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship
  • 00:11:10.020 --> 00:11:12.170
  • of His sufferings."
  • 00:11:12.180 --> 00:11:14.190
  • And that means to fellowship with his sufferings is
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:18.010
  • the word exchanged.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:20.130
  • We exchange his suffering of sickness.
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:23.180
  • Well, he wasn't sick, but he took our--bore our sicknesses
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:29.150
  • on the cross so that by his stripes we are healed.
  • 00:11:29.160 --> 00:11:33.110
  • He became sin so that by the cross we
  • 00:11:33.120 --> 00:11:37.110
  • would become righteous.
  • 00:11:37.120 --> 00:11:39.100
  • He became poor that we through his poverty might be
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:43.050
  • made rich.
  • 00:11:43.060 --> 00:11:45.050
  • He crucified Jesus so that he could resurrect you.
  • 00:11:45.060 --> 00:11:51.060
  • He crucified Jesus so that he could rescue you.
  • 00:11:51.180 --> 00:11:54.110
  • He crucified Jesus so that he can heal you.
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:56.140
  • I know you're like, "Is it Good Friday?"
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:58.080
  • Listen to me.
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:12:00.250
  • It's Good Sunday.
  • 00:12:00.260 --> 00:12:02.060
  • Every day is the day to expect.
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:05.070
  • Expect love, love, and more love.
  • 00:12:05.080 --> 00:12:09.160
  • We've got to set our expectations, because every one
  • 00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:12.210
  • of us in this room has asked ourselves the question:
  • 00:12:12.220 --> 00:12:16.260
  • "What did I do wrong?"
  • 00:12:16.270 --> 00:12:18.060
  • Like something starts going wrong for you and something you
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:21.040
  • don't quite understand, and something you can't quite
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:23.240
  • figure out, and like, "Why am I--you know, Lord why am I
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:27.120
  • going through these, why am I going through this flood?
  • 00:12:27.130 --> 00:12:30.290
  • Why am I going through this storm of water?"
  • 00:12:31.000 --> 00:12:33.270
  • And you're thinking God's bringing this storm to teach you
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:36.180
  • a lesson, but the answer on the other side is because
  • 00:12:36.190 --> 00:12:39.150
  • your enemy can't swim.
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:44.100
  • You see, we think, "Oh, it's because God's tryin' to, you
  • 00:12:44.110 --> 00:12:48.120
  • know, God's mad at me."
  • 00:12:48.130 --> 00:12:49.220
  • No, it's a completely different reason every time.
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:55.230
  • You think it's, "Oh, I didn't do enough.
  • 00:12:56.210 --> 00:12:59.140
  • Why does it seem like I'm just, you know, disjointed right now?"
  • 00:12:59.150 --> 00:13:04.240
  • And we go to try to figure stuff out rather than just keep
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:10.110
  • expecting the goodness and the love of God.
  • 00:13:10.120 --> 00:13:15.140
  • Love, love, and more love.
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:18.140
  • Because you say, "Well, yeah, I know.
  • 00:13:18.150 --> 00:13:20.040
  • But--I know I messed up."
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:22.030
  • See, if you're only fixing something, now in your life,
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:26.050
  • you're only fixing it because now you got--you think God's
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:29.260
  • against you, so you go to start fixing something in your life.
  • 00:13:29.270 --> 00:13:33.040
  • You're fixing that area of your life for the wrong reason.
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:37.010
  • And God's not against you.
  • 00:13:37.020 --> 00:13:39.070
  • He's for you, not against you.
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:40.280
  • But in our mental gymnastics, our mental games that we play
  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:45.080
  • are like, "Oh, I gotta fix this in my life 'cause something's
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:48.030
  • not right."
  • 00:13:48.040 --> 00:13:49.130
  • And that's when we make really bad decisions.
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:53.000
  • That's when we say, "Oh, it must be, you know, it must be
  • 00:13:53.010 --> 00:13:55.230
  • the church I'm goin' to.
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:13:57.040
  • Oh, it must be my husband.
  • 00:13:57.050 --> 00:13:58.220
  • Oh, it must be my job.
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.120
  • It must be my boss.
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:01.230
  • That must be the problem."
  • 00:14:01.240 --> 00:14:03.030
  • When it's really, it's you stopped believing in the simple
  • 00:14:03.040 --> 00:14:05.070
  • thing, Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
  • 00:14:05.080 --> 00:14:07.280
  • You started thinking, you know, "Why don't I have this yet?
  • 00:14:07.290 --> 00:14:10.200
  • Why don't I have that yet?
  • 00:14:10.210 --> 00:14:12.000
  • Why hasn't this worked out for me yet?
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:13.110
  • Why hasn't this worked out for me yet?"
  • 00:14:13.120 --> 00:14:15.000
  • And you start tryin' to tinker with it and fix it.
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:17.150
  • And that's why Paul's centers us.
  • 00:14:17.160 --> 00:14:19.240
  • He centers us back on, "I know nothing.
  • 00:14:19.250 --> 00:14:24.220
  • I want to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:26.140
  • and Him crucified," why?
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:28.150
  • Because the cross is love.
  • 00:14:28.160 --> 00:14:30.040
  • And what should we expect?
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:31.200
  • When we know that God loves us, we should expect the curse
  • 00:14:31.210 --> 00:14:34.180
  • to turn into a blessing.
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:37.060
  • We need to hear this.
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:38.170
  • We need to get this 'cause this is what's goin' on in the world.
  • 00:14:38.180 --> 00:14:40.200
  • This world is cursed without the cross.
  • 00:14:40.210 --> 00:14:46.020
  • The World is cursed without the cross.
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:48.150
  • A generation is cursed without the cross.
  • 00:14:48.160 --> 00:14:50.260
  • Say why is this happening?
  • 00:14:50.270 --> 00:14:52.110
  • Why did this happen in America?
  • 00:14:52.120 --> 00:14:54.000
  • Why did this happen over in China?
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:55.120
  • Why did this happen? Why did this disaster?
  • 00:14:55.130 --> 00:14:57.110
  • Why did this tragedy? Why this shooting, why?
  • 00:14:57.120 --> 00:15:00.070
  • All the things that are happening in the last 24 hours
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:03.170
  • and in the last 2.400 years, et cetera, et cetera, why are these
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:07.270
  • things happening?
  • 00:15:07.280 --> 00:15:09.080
  • Because the world is under a curse.
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:11.010
  • The world is cursed without the cross.
  • 00:15:11.020 --> 00:15:15.230
  • And only when you embrace the cross are you redeemed
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:19.260
  • from the curse.
  • 00:15:19.270 --> 00:15:21.240
  • But if you don't know what you're redeemed from, you'll
  • 00:15:21.250 --> 00:15:25.230
  • just embrace whatever happens in your life as a hereditary,
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:31.220
  • or this is just the way that I am, or I'll always have this
  • 00:15:31.230 --> 00:15:34.240
  • this problem.
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:36.050
  • Or I'll always be, you know, I'll always be ill.
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:38.130
  • I'll always be emotionally unstable, et cetera.
  • 00:15:38.140 --> 00:15:42.080
  • You to go through a litany of things that we have accepted
  • 00:15:42.090 --> 00:15:46.280
  • as hereditary or as a part of our DNA, and because we don't
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:52.290
  • know just this among us, Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:57.240
  • We're figuring other stuff out, and we're tryin' to give other
  • 00:15:57.250 --> 00:16:00.200
  • explanations to all the things in our life.
  • 00:16:00.210 --> 00:16:02.190
  • And he says, "Look, this is the only thing I want
  • 00:16:02.200 --> 00:16:04.090
  • to know about you.
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:06.090
  • Jesus Christ and Him crucified, why?
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:09.070
  • Because the cross is love and without the cross we're
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:10.210
  • cursed, but with the cross, because of the cross,
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:13.120
  • by the cross, because of love and through the cross, we are
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:17.200
  • redeemed from the curse."
  • 00:16:17.210 --> 00:16:21.280
  • So, Deuteronomy 28 says, "If you will diligently obey," verse 1,
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:27.290
  • "the Lord your God, and be careful to do all His
  • 00:16:29.230 --> 00:16:35.190
  • commandments, then all these blessings will come upon you."
  • 00:16:35.200 --> 00:16:40.150
  • And I've heard preachers say, "See?
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:43.140
  • You have to obey if you want these blessings.
  • 00:16:43.150 --> 00:16:47.100
  • You have to obey God fully."
  • 00:16:47.110 --> 00:16:48.200
  • But nobody can do this.
  • 00:16:48.210 --> 00:16:52.030
  • In verse 1 he says you have to obey all the commands.
  • 00:16:52.040 --> 00:16:55.200
  • You have to do all the commands and then all these blessings
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:17:01.170
  • will come upon you.
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:03.070
  • "Well, I guess I'm not doin' all the commands so I can't expect
  • 00:17:03.080 --> 00:17:05.200
  • all the blessings.
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:07.010
  • Or maybe I do some of the commands, so I expect
  • 00:17:07.020 --> 00:17:08.110
  • some of the blessing."
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:09.210
  • Wrong!
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:11.150
  • You're either blessed, or you're cursed.
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:14.100
  • You're either in Christ, or you're not in Christ.
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:17.010
  • You're either in sin, or you're the righteousness of God.
  • 00:17:17.020 --> 00:17:19.210
  • There is no middle.
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:22.210
  • You say, "Yeah, but I know I'm saved, but I still fall."
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:25.040
  • But that's not being in sin.
  • 00:17:25.050 --> 00:17:27.000
  • That might be sinning, but it's not being in sin.
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:30.030
  • Listen to me!
  • 00:17:30.040 --> 00:17:31.200
  • This is where it all boils down to.
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:34.020
  • "It is nothing that needs to be known among us except Jesus
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:37.280
  • Christ and Him crucified," why?
  • 00:17:37.290 --> 00:17:39.090
  • 'Cause that is love, the cross is love, and the cross redeems
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:42.160
  • us from the curse.
  • 00:17:42.170 --> 00:17:43.260
  • And what is the curse?
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:45.070
  • The curses, all these curses will come upon you,
  • 00:17:45.080 --> 00:17:47.150
  • and the blessings, all these blessings will come upon you.
  • 00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:50.250
  • And there's 68 verses, from verse 15 to verse 68 are
  • 00:17:50.260 --> 00:17:56.250
  • the curses.
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:02.040
  • From verse 1 to verse 14 are the blessings.
  • 00:18:02.050 --> 00:18:05.050
  • And then the curses are just terrible.
  • 00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:11.060
  • Every curse in here falls into one of these seven
  • 00:18:16.110 --> 00:18:19.200
  • categories.
  • 00:18:19.210 --> 00:18:21.010
  • Here they are.
  • 00:18:21.020 --> 00:18:22.110
  • Let me give them to you real quick.
  • 00:18:22.120 --> 00:18:23.220
  • The curse of emotional and mental problems.
  • 00:18:23.230 --> 00:18:28.050
  • The curse of emotional and mental illness or emotional
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:32.170
  • and mental problems.
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:34.080
  • In verse 8 of Deuteronomy 8 says, "The Lord--"
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:38.230
  • Excuse me.
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:40.030
  • In verse 65, he says, "And among you shall find no rest
  • 00:18:40.040 --> 00:18:46.040
  • among the nations, there'll be no resting place for the sole
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:49.040
  • of your foot, but the Lord will give you a trembling heart,
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:51.220
  • failing of eyes, and despair of the soul."
  • 00:18:51.230 --> 00:18:55.180
  • Despair of the soul.
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:58.150
  • That your soul will be in despair.
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:01.180
  • Emotional, mental illness is the curse of disobedience
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:07.190
  • to the law.
  • 00:19:08.140 --> 00:19:09.240
  • That is why the curse is in this world.
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:12.150
  • You say, "Well, isn't God a loving God?"
  • 00:19:12.160 --> 00:19:14.120
  • Yes, that's why he turns the curse into a blessing.
  • 00:19:14.130 --> 00:19:17.080
  • But you have to accept that love through Jesus,
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:19.250
  • through the cross.
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:21.050
  • Only through the cross. Only through the cross.
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:23.260
  • The cross is love.
  • 00:19:23.270 --> 00:19:25.060
  • No greater love, no greater love, are you still with me?
  • 00:19:25.070 --> 00:19:28.210
  • Number two is family problems.
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:32.080
  • It's a curse.
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:33.230
  • You don't have to have--
  • 00:19:33.240 --> 00:19:35.210
  • We all have family problems, but we don't have to be defeated
  • 00:19:35.220 --> 00:19:39.100
  • by them, and they don't have to remain in your life.
  • 00:19:39.110 --> 00:19:41.280
  • Verse 41 says, "You shall have sons and daughters, but they
  • 00:19:41.290 --> 00:19:46.210
  • shall not be yours, they shall be taken into captivity."
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:49.180
  • Captivity to drugs, captivity to, you know, immorality,
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:54.150
  • captivity to anxiety, captivity to addictions, captivity
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:20:00.160
  • to social media, captivity-- they're captivated by something
  • 00:20:01.110 --> 00:20:06.090
  • other than Jesus.
  • 00:20:06.100 --> 00:20:07.190
  • That's the curse.
  • 00:20:07.200 --> 00:20:09.000
  • You don't need to expect that.
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:10.100
  • You don't need to believe that.
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:11.210
  • You need to expect your children to be blessed, your children
  • 00:20:11.220 --> 00:20:13.250
  • to be disciples of the Lord, your children to grow
  • 00:20:13.260 --> 00:20:16.010
  • up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:17.260
  • You don't need to expect emotional problems.
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:19.270
  • You don't need to expect family problems.
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:22.080
  • You need to expect family blessings and emotional
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:24.210
  • blessings and emotional health.
  • 00:20:24.220 --> 00:20:27.000
  • What else?
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:28.100
  • Sickness, disease, including cancers and tumors.
  • 00:20:28.110 --> 00:20:30.280
  • Sickness and disease is the third thing
  • 00:20:30.290 --> 00:20:33.100
  • that the curse brings.
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:35.110
  • And I could go through all the verses.
  • 00:20:35.120 --> 00:20:36.210
  • Verse 22, "The Lord will smite you with consumption and fever,
  • 00:20:36.220 --> 00:20:39.270
  • inflammation, fiery heat."
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:41.130
  • Hey, some of you doctor usually will tell ya most of what your
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:44.050
  • problem is inflammation.
  • 00:20:44.060 --> 00:20:45.180
  • That's under the curse.
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:46.290
  • You're redeemed from it.
  • 00:20:47.000 --> 00:20:50.250
  • I know, man.
  • 00:20:50.260 --> 00:20:52.060
  • Take an Advil, I don't care.
  • 00:20:52.070 --> 00:20:53.160
  • But let me tell you something.
  • 00:20:53.170 --> 00:20:55.130
  • You need to speak to your inflamed blood stream
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:59.050
  • and inflamed body parts and say, "You do not belong here.
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:03.130
  • Christ redeemed me from the curse."
  • 00:21:03.140 --> 00:21:05.250
  • You say, "God doesn't care about little things like that."
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:09.030
  • If God saved you from hell, don't you think he can save you
  • 00:21:09.040 --> 00:21:11.240
  • from some inflammation, a little heat in your body?
  • 00:21:11.250 --> 00:21:17.250
  • My god, people are dense sometimes about, "Oh,
  • 00:21:18.080 --> 00:21:22.090
  • God doesn't really care about the details."
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:23.230
  • Really?
  • 00:21:23.240 --> 00:21:25.030
  • Because he knows the number of hairs on your head, and he
  • 00:21:25.040 --> 00:21:26.230
  • knows there is getting less and less all the time.
  • 00:21:26.240 --> 00:21:31.170
  • But I found in the Bible where I'm redeemed from that.
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:33.210
  • So, Hallelujah!
  • 00:21:33.220 --> 00:21:37.130
  • Hair-a-lujah!
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:38.280
  • Alright, let me finish this.
  • 00:21:38.290 --> 00:21:41.020
  • I gotta let you go.
  • 00:21:41.030 --> 00:21:44.120
  • Terrorism and hate are under the curse.
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:49.000
  • And you can look around and you can say, "Oh, we just can't stop
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:52.170
  • these tragedies and killings.
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.160
  • We can't stop this from happening."
  • 00:21:54.170 --> 00:21:56.060
  • You can't necessarily stop it from happening in a world
  • 00:21:56.070 --> 00:21:59.010
  • without the cross, but you certainly can expect it to stop
  • 00:21:59.020 --> 00:22:02.270
  • happening in your world because of the cross.
  • 00:22:02.280 --> 00:22:08.270
  • I don't have time to get into that, but that's in verse
  • 00:22:09.110 --> 00:22:11.140
  • 49 and 50 of Genesis--or excuse me, of Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:15.180
  • Failure and defeat is part of the curse, in verse 20
  • 00:22:15.190 --> 00:22:19.140
  • and verse 25.
  • 00:22:19.150 --> 00:22:22.020
  • Poverty, verse 29 and verse 38.
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:24.290
  • And fear, verse 65 through 67 of Deuteronomy.
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:29.150
  • All of these seven curses, every problem in this world falls
  • 00:22:29.160 --> 00:22:35.000
  • under the curse.
  • 00:22:35.010 --> 00:22:36.110
  • That's why the cross is the answer.
  • 00:22:36.120 --> 00:22:37.210
  • The cross is the solution.
  • 00:22:37.220 --> 00:22:39.070
  • That's why Jesus is still the answer and always will be
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:41.240
  • the answer, because of what he did on the cross.
  • 00:22:41.250 --> 00:22:44.230
  • You can claim and receive and declare your redemption
  • 00:22:44.240 --> 00:22:49.170
  • from these things because the Bible says,
  • 00:22:49.180 --> 00:22:52.140
  • "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so."
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:56.110
  • This is how you activate your deliverance and your freedom.
  • 00:22:56.120 --> 00:22:59.140
  • Instead of emotional problems, you're gonna have peace.
  • 00:22:59.150 --> 00:23:01.160
  • Instead of family curses, you're gonna have blessings,
  • 00:23:01.170 --> 00:23:03.260
  • flourishing, and prosperity.
  • 00:23:03.270 --> 00:23:05.130
  • Instead of financial limits, you're gonna have provision
  • 00:23:05.140 --> 00:23:07.090
  • and abundance.
  • 00:23:07.100 --> 00:23:08.190
  • Instead of sicknesses and disease, you're gonna have
  • 00:23:08.200 --> 00:23:10.040
  • health and healing.
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:11.140
  • Instead of fear and doubt, you're gonna have faith
  • 00:23:11.150 --> 00:23:12.290
  • and confidence.
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:14.090
  • Instead of terror and destruction, you're going
  • 00:23:14.100 --> 00:23:15.260
  • to have peace and security, no evil coming near
  • 00:23:15.270 --> 00:23:19.030
  • your dwelling place.
  • 00:23:19.040 --> 00:23:20.240
  • And instead of failure, you're going to have success.
  • 00:23:20.250 --> 00:23:22.040
  • Let's stand and go have some blessings showing up
  • 00:23:22.050 --> 00:23:23.140
  • in our lives.
  • 00:23:23.150 --> 00:23:25.150
  • Gregory Dickow: Well, no matter what's goin' on in your life,
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:30.080
  • I believe you're ready for your turnaround.
  • 00:23:30.090 --> 00:23:32.210
  • Remember, God turns the curse into a blessing because of his
  • 00:23:32.220 --> 00:23:36.110
  • great love for you.
  • 00:23:36.120 --> 00:23:37.220
  • Do you need a turnaround today?
  • 00:23:37.230 --> 00:23:39.020
  • I want you to expect it.
  • 00:23:39.030 --> 00:23:40.130
  • He is the lifter of your head.
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:42.000
  • So you can see what he sees, feel what he feels.
  • 00:23:42.010 --> 00:23:44.110
  • He's the lifter of your head.
  • 00:23:44.120 --> 00:23:45.210
  • So you can start expecting something good to happen
  • 00:23:45.220 --> 00:23:48.170
  • and some turnaround to happen in your life.
  • 00:23:48.180 --> 00:23:50.190
  • He is bringing all things together no matter what it looks
  • 00:23:50.200 --> 00:23:53.080
  • like, and I wanna encourage you to decide today not to tolerate
  • 00:23:53.090 --> 00:23:57.280
  • for a moment this curse of negativity anymore.
  • 00:23:57.290 --> 00:24:02.080
  • Expect something good and expect something powerful today.
  • 00:24:02.090 --> 00:24:06.150
  • You are redeemed.
  • 00:24:06.160 --> 00:24:07.250
  • Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, amen?
  • 00:24:07.260 --> 00:24:10.290
  • Now, listen, I want to send you my full teaching on how God
  • 00:24:11.000 --> 00:24:14.130
  • turns the curse into a blessing.
  • 00:24:14.140 --> 00:24:16.210
  • It's called "Blessed Forever, Cursed for Never."
  • 00:24:16.220 --> 00:24:20.010
  • You're gonna discover how to see sickness turn into healing,
  • 00:24:20.020 --> 00:24:22.100
  • curse into blessing, sadness into joy, and so much more.
  • 00:24:22.110 --> 00:24:25.080
