  • Gregory Dickow: We have been delivered from false
  • 00:00:01.040 --> 00:00:02.230
  • expectations appearing real.
  • 00:00:02.240 --> 00:00:04.190
  • We've been delivered from fear.
  • 00:00:04.200 --> 00:00:06.120
  • The first thing that happened to Adam and Eve when they sinned
  • 00:00:06.130 --> 00:00:08.180
  • was they were afraid.
  • 00:00:08.190 --> 00:00:09.280
  • The first thing Jesus comes to deliver us from is fear.
  • 00:00:09.290 --> 00:00:13.100
  • Do not be afraid.
  • 00:00:13.110 --> 00:00:14.200
  • Love is here. Love is here.
  • 00:00:14.210 --> 00:00:17.110
  • Perfect love casts out fear.
  • 00:00:17.120 --> 00:00:18.220
  • Love is here.
  • 00:00:18.230 --> 00:00:20.020
  • God shows up.
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:21.130
  • Love shows up.
  • 00:00:21.140 --> 00:00:22.230
  • And when love shows up, fear has to run out the door.
  • 00:00:22.240 --> 00:00:26.270
  • 00:00:26.280 --> 00:00:36.080
  • 00:00:37.090 --> 00:00:44.220
  • Gregory Dickow: Luke chapter 21, verse 25 and 26, and today I
  • 00:00:46.280 --> 00:00:50.240
  • wanna talk to you about Jesus, the lifter of your head.
  • 00:00:50.250 --> 00:00:54.280
  • Jesus, the lifter of your head.
  • 00:00:54.290 --> 00:00:57.240
  • How many know that Jesus is a lifter?
  • 00:00:57.250 --> 00:01:01.140
  • He lifts us.
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:02.280
  • He doesn't push us down, he lifts us up.
  • 00:01:02.290 --> 00:01:05.290
  • He doesn't pull us, he lifts us.
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:08.200
  • He's the lifter of our head.
  • 00:01:08.210 --> 00:01:10.130
  • And I'll get to that verse in a couple of moments, but I
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:12.170
  • want you to see why this is so important because
  • 00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:15.090
  • of the world that we're in today and because of what--because
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:18.080
  • of the circumstances that we face in our lives every day.
  • 00:01:18.090 --> 00:01:21.180
  • Notice what Jesus says in the last days.
  • 00:01:21.190 --> 00:01:24.250
  • He says, "There will be signs in the sun and in the moon
  • 00:01:24.260 --> 00:01:29.160
  • and in the stars, and on the earth distress
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:32.280
  • of nations, with perplexity and the sea and the waves
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:37.180
  • roaring."
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:38.290
  • Now, Jesus is referring to a time before his second
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:42.170
  • coming, and everything God says is--has happened just like he
  • 00:01:42.180 --> 00:01:47.100
  • said it would and only the things that he--and only
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:52.050
  • the things that he said would happen after the rapture are
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:55.290
  • yet to take place, because that's what's gotta
  • 00:01:56.000 --> 00:01:58.140
  • happen first.
  • 00:01:58.150 --> 00:02:00.060
  • The rapture is the catching away of the church.
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:01.210
  • But the point that I'm making here is this is what the time
  • 00:02:01.220 --> 00:02:05.010
  • period, the sliver of time where he's speaking.
  • 00:02:05.020 --> 00:02:06.220
  • But I really want to get to verse 26, which is more
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:09.160
  • important and pertinent to both in those times, in those last
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:13.210
  • days, and in the days we're living in today this
  • 00:02:13.220 --> 00:02:16.090
  • applies as well.
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:17.280
  • 'Cause watch, when we read it you'll see for yourself.
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:20.130
  • "Men's hearts failing them from fear."
  • 00:02:20.140 --> 00:02:24.150
  • Men's hearts failing them from fear.
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.110
  • When he uses the word "men" here, it's mankind.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:30.010
  • It's not--it's not meant to be just male, it's mankind.
  • 00:02:30.020 --> 00:02:34.080
  • "Mankind's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:41.110
  • of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers
  • 00:02:41.120 --> 00:02:45.210
  • of the heavens will be shaken."
  • 00:02:45.220 --> 00:02:48.150
  • And what he's saying here is this, is that our hearts fail
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:53.160
  • because of fear.
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:54.290
  • We give up because of fear.
  • 00:02:55.000 --> 00:02:57.230
  • And we give up because, he says, "Men's hearts failing because
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:03:01.180
  • of the expectation of things which are coming on the earth."
  • 00:03:01.190 --> 00:03:05.250
  • And I want you to be prepared for the things that are coming
  • 00:03:05.260 --> 00:03:08.070
  • to you tomorrow.
  • 00:03:08.080 --> 00:03:09.180
  • I want you to be prepared for the things that are coming
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:11.120
  • to you next month.
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:12.220
  • I want you to be prepared for the things that are gonna
  • 00:03:12.230 --> 00:03:14.040
  • come against you next year.
  • 00:03:14.050 --> 00:03:15.220
  • Because there will always be things happening in this world
  • 00:03:15.230 --> 00:03:18.240
  • that will produce negative expectation, and we have
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:21.210
  • to fight off negative expectation, or the expectation
  • 00:03:21.220 --> 00:03:25.060
  • of evil, or the expectation of something bad happening.
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:28.040
  • We gotta fight that off with the expectation
  • 00:03:28.050 --> 00:03:30.120
  • of something good happening in our life.
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:32.080
  • We gotta get to the place where we are really expecting good
  • 00:03:32.090 --> 00:03:35.080
  • things to happen.
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:36.190
  • I'm going to show you exactly how to shift your expectation,
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.230
  • because this is what Jesus does.
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:42.020
  • Jesus gives us a reason to look expectantly and to be expecting
  • 00:03:42.030 --> 00:03:46.220
  • that something good is gonna happen in our lives.
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:48.220
  • The Bible says in Psalm 23, most famous chapter in Psalms, that,
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:53.200
  • "Surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the days
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:57.030
  • of our life."
  • 00:03:57.040 --> 00:03:58.230
  • All the days of your--days of our lives, just like
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:04:00.130
  • the soap opera.
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:02.030
  • "Surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the days
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:05.080
  • of your life."
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:06.280
  • Is today one of those days of your life?
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:08.260
  • Then goodness and mercy is gonna follow you.
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:10.220
  • But see, most Christians aren't expecting goodness and mercy
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:16.050
  • to follow them every day.
  • 00:04:16.060 --> 00:04:17.200
  • Many people that are believers today are expecting something
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:21.160
  • bad to happen.
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:22.270
  • And if things are going too good, they're like, "Oh man, I
  • 00:04:22.280 --> 00:04:25.020
  • better not jinx this.
  • 00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:26.120
  • Knock on wood.
  • 00:04:26.130 --> 00:04:27.230
  • I better not make some--I'd better not make a mistake here
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:29.190
  • and then something bad is gonna happen."
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:31.000
  • See, that is a misconcept of God when things are goin' good
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:35.000
  • and you're like, "I'm afraid that things might stop
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:36.220
  • goin' good.
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:38.130
  • I don't want to do anything to jinx myself."
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:39.230
  • No, stop that.
  • 00:04:39.240 --> 00:04:41.040
  • If you wake up every day, if you would just wake up every day
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:43.140
  • expecting good, expecting goodness, expecting mercy
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:47.250
  • to follow you, it will.
  • 00:04:47.260 --> 00:04:51.280
  • It already is following you, you're just not noticing it
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:54.290
  • or not recognizing it and not focused on the good.
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:58.290
  • Ten lepers were cleansed, but only one turned back.
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:02.230
  • And what what made him turn back?
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:05.030
  • It's not that he was the only one cleansed.
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:06.280
  • All of them were.
  • 00:05:06.290 --> 00:05:08.080
  • What made him turn back?
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:09.290
  • It says in--it says in Luke chapter 17, verse 15, "When he
  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:14.080
  • saw that he was healed, he turned back."
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:19.160
  • One of them saw that he was healed.
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:23.230
  • In other words, one of them was focused on what God had done
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:27.250
  • and the other ones were focused on what they had to still do.
  • 00:05:27.260 --> 00:05:34.020
  • When you're always focused on what you still have to do,
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:37.080
  • you won't be thankful.
  • 00:05:37.090 --> 00:05:38.190
  • But when you're focused on what he's already done, you'll
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:42.190
  • be thankful.
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:44.120
  • When he saw, "Whoa, man, I used to be a leper.
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:49.240
  • It's gone.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.050
  • Wait, what happened?
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:52.150
  • What's happening with my--Whoa.
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:54.010
  • Thank you, Jesus."
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.110
  • And when he saw, when his eyes were on what Jesus did for him,
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:06:01.240
  • he became thankful.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:04.080
  • But when your eyes are on what you have to still do, "I gotta
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:06.280
  • go run to the priest and tell them what happened," then you
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:11.210
  • can't--you won't turn back and be thankful.
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:13.120
  • You're focused on what you have to do rather than in what
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:16.190
  • Jesus did.
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:17.290
  • What we have to understand is that expectation is a powerful
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:24.270
  • force, and we're either expecting good or we're
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:29.230
  • expecting bad every day of our lives.
  • 00:06:29.240 --> 00:06:33.120
  • And I want to show you how to expect good all the time.
  • 00:06:33.130 --> 00:06:36.220
  • So we live in a world that is governed, and motivated,
  • 00:06:36.230 --> 00:06:40.100
  • and driven by fear, the fear that something bad is gonna
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:43.280
  • happen so you better take this pill, the fear of what could
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:46.250
  • happen in your life so you better take this, the fear that
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:49.210
  • you're gonna be missing out so you better buy this,
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:51.290
  • the fear that somebody is going to get ahead of you so you
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:54.000
  • better fight harder, you better do this more.
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:56.070
  • And everything that this world is governed by is it's governed
  • 00:06:56.080 --> 00:06:59.180
  • by fear, which is--One way we can put it is F-E-A-R, false
  • 00:06:59.190 --> 00:07:06.160
  • expectations appearing real.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:09.250
  • False expectations appearing real, FEAR.
  • 00:07:09.260 --> 00:07:13.060
  • And what fear is is simply the expectation of
  • 00:07:13.070 --> 00:07:16.120
  • something bad.
  • 00:07:16.130 --> 00:07:17.220
  • It's the opposite of love.
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:19.100
  • It's not the opposite of faith.
  • 00:07:19.110 --> 00:07:20.230
  • I'll get to that in a moment, but the two opposites are love
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:24.010
  • and fear are the opposites.
  • 00:07:24.020 --> 00:07:25.170
  • The opposite of fear is love.
  • 00:07:25.180 --> 00:07:26.270
  • The opposite of love is fear.
  • 00:07:26.280 --> 00:07:28.290
  • Love drives out all fear.
  • 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:31.010
  • Fear is the absence.
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:32.230
  • Fear is believing in the absence of love or you don't believe
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:38.030
  • in the presence of God's love.
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:40.030
  • You don't believe that God's love is present towards you,
  • 00:07:40.040 --> 00:07:42.270
  • active towards you, activating towards you, so you end
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:46.270
  • up in fear.
  • 00:07:46.280 --> 00:07:48.080
  • But perfect love casts out fear.
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:52.010
  • So--but we want to deal with this because even though
  • 00:07:52.020 --> 00:07:56.130
  • in America, for those of you that are watching in other
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:58.140
  • countries, you know it's true that in America and some other
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:08:01.270
  • developed countries we have all the abundance.
  • 00:08:01.280 --> 00:08:04.160
  • We have more wealth than has ever been in the world in this
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:08.280
  • country and in some of the other well-developed countries
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:12.040
  • around the world.
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:13.150
  • But even though we're the richest nation in the world,
  • 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:16.280
  • we're probably the most anxious nation in the world.
  • 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:20.270
  • We have the most anxiety.
  • 00:08:20.280 --> 00:08:22.180
  • We have the most depression.
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:24.110
  • We have the most prescription medications of any nation
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:29.240
  • in the world.
  • 00:08:29.250 --> 00:08:31.040
  • Even though we have so much abundance, there are more--
  • 00:08:31.050 --> 00:08:36.040
  • There there are more legal, if I can say this--and I don't say
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:40.150
  • this in a negative way towards anybody 'cause I know
  • 00:08:40.160 --> 00:08:42.220
  • what it's like to be addicted to something and I know what
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:45.200
  • it's like to to break out of addiction.
  • 00:08:45.210 --> 00:08:48.010
  • I know what it's like to be under an addiction.
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:50.140
  • But I can tell you this, that there are probably more legal
  • 00:08:50.150 --> 00:08:53.290
  • addicts, there are probably more--there are probably more
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:57.210
  • legal--legally addicted people than illegally addicted in our
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:09:04.070
  • world because there's so much medication for every emotion
  • 00:09:04.080 --> 00:09:08.030
  • that we feel.
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:09.130
  • And I believe that Jesus wants to deliver us because anxiety
  • 00:09:09.140 --> 00:09:14.170
  • and fear is the result of expecting the bad to happen.
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:21.120
  • And love is expecting the good.
  • 00:09:21.130 --> 00:09:25.270
  • Love is expecting the good.
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:28.040
  • Well, let me back up for a second and make this clear.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:32.230
  • When Adam and Eve were with God in the Garden of Eden, they had
  • 00:09:32.240 --> 00:09:37.190
  • all their needs met.
  • 00:09:37.200 --> 00:09:39.090
  • They had perfect joy, perfect happiness, perfect peace,
  • 00:09:39.100 --> 00:09:43.040
  • perfect love.
  • 00:09:43.050 --> 00:09:44.140
  • And then when they bought the lie that if they ate
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:47.150
  • from the tree of knowledge of good and evil they'd be
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:48.270
  • like God, it was a lie because why?
  • 00:09:48.280 --> 00:09:51.010
  • They already were like God, right?
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:54.160
  • But I want you to see the first thing.
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:57.120
  • The first thing that happens to Adam and Eve after they sin
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:04.200
  • is found in Genesis 3:10, and notice the emotion,
  • 00:10:04.210 --> 00:10:09.250
  • the first thing they feel, the first thing they say.
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:12.150
  • So, God says to Adam, "Where are you?"
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:14.180
  • And he says, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid."
  • 00:10:14.190 --> 00:10:18.160
  • I was afraid. I was afraid.
  • 00:10:18.170 --> 00:10:21.100
  • Now, this must take something really dramatic to hear
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:27.030
  • the voice of God and be afraid.
  • 00:10:27.040 --> 00:10:29.110
  • You see, because everywhere else after this, when somebody heard
  • 00:10:29.120 --> 00:10:33.120
  • the voice of God, they were encouraged.
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:36.030
  • When somebody heard the voice of God, they were inspired.
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:38.290
  • When somebody heard the voice of God, they felt loved.
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:42.040
  • You know, the opposite here.
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:43.170
  • The first thing that--the first thing that Adam did, Adam now
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:47.050
  • is, because he's separated from God, when he hears
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:51.080
  • the voice of God, it produces fear in him because he doesn't
  • 00:10:51.090 --> 00:10:54.270
  • believe in the love of God now.
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:57.100
  • He's separated from God, therefore he's separated
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:59.270
  • from real love.
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:01.090
  • And so, when you're separated from love, you're afraid when
  • 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:05.030
  • you hear the voice of God.
  • 00:11:05.040 --> 00:11:06.140
  • He said, "I heard your voice and I became afraid."
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:09.080
  • See, if you knew me, if you knew me and I say something, and if
  • 00:11:09.090 --> 00:11:16.120
  • you knew that my heart for you is to love you, and to be kind
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:19.120
  • to you, and I've got the best for you, and I want to--I want
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:22.010
  • to bless you with some good information, then you wouldn't
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:25.000
  • be--you wouldn't hide from me.
  • 00:11:25.010 --> 00:11:30.230
  • And so, Adam and Eve are now hiding from the Father because
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:35.120
  • they have--now they have come to the worst possible place
  • 00:11:35.130 --> 00:11:39.140
  • a human being could ever come to, and that is this place.
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:43.080
  • They doubted God's love for them.
  • 00:11:43.090 --> 00:11:46.240
  • They doubted God's love for them.
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:48.120
  • So now when God speaks to them, they don't hear love,
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:53.200
  • they hear fear.
  • 00:11:53.210 --> 00:11:55.100
  • They don't feel loved, they feel fear.
  • 00:11:55.110 --> 00:11:58.020
  • Because they don't feel loved, they feel shame, they feel
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:12:02.090
  • guilt, they feel condemned because of what they did,
  • 00:12:02.100 --> 00:12:06.190
  • and so when God speaks, they run, they hide, they're afraid.
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:11.210
  • "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid."
  • 00:12:11.220 --> 00:12:14.280
  • So the first emotion that came into the world after Adam
  • 00:12:14.290 --> 00:12:18.160
  • and Eve sinned was fear.
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:21.060
  • Fear, it's the granddaddy of all emotions.
  • 00:12:21.070 --> 00:12:24.280
  • It's the mother of all negative emotions, negative feelings,
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:29.290
  • and a negative life.
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:32.130
  • It's fear. It's fear.
  • 00:12:32.140 --> 00:12:35.040
  • It's fear.
  • 00:12:35.050 --> 00:12:36.150
  • So notice, when Jesus hears the voice of God for the first
  • 00:12:36.160 --> 00:12:40.190
  • time--now, he didn't hear his voice for the first time,
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:44.170
  • but the first time we have it recorded when he heard--when he
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:48.230
  • heard the voice of God is in Mark 1:11.
  • 00:12:48.240 --> 00:12:51.140
  • Mark 1:11 is the first time we have written in the Bible where
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:56.090
  • Jesus heard the voice of God.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.190
  • And in the New Living Translation, let me read it
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:12:59.210
  • to ya.
  • 00:12:59.220 --> 00:13:01.030
  • In the New Living Translation of Mark 1:11, it says this.
  • 00:13:01.040 --> 00:13:05.070
  • It says, Mark 1:11, "And a voice from heaven saying," what?
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:13.070
  • "You," come on, read it now.
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:16.040
  • "You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy."
  • 00:13:16.050 --> 00:13:20.200
  • So notice the contrast.
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:22.060
  • Adam is separated from God and he says, "When I heard your
  • 00:13:22.070 --> 00:13:25.200
  • voice I became afraid."
  • 00:13:25.210 --> 00:13:27.040
  • Jesus is not separated from God, so when he hears his voice,
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:31.190
  • here's what he hears, "You are my dearly loved Son, and you
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:34.220
  • bring me great joy."
  • 00:13:34.230 --> 00:13:37.130
  • One of them responded to the voice of God with fear
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:40.040
  • because they were separated from God, and one of them
  • 00:13:40.050 --> 00:13:42.100
  • responded to the voice of God with confidence, and trust,
  • 00:13:42.110 --> 00:13:45.190
  • and assurance because they heard--because Jesus was not
  • 00:13:45.200 --> 00:13:50.060
  • separated from God, he heard love.
  • 00:13:50.070 --> 00:13:52.150
  • Adam was separated from God, he heard fear.
  • 00:13:52.160 --> 00:13:54.290
  • Jesus was not separated from God, he heard love.
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:57.230
  • So what we need to realize is that when you're born again,
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:14:01.050
  • you're no longer separated from God.
  • 00:14:01.060 --> 00:14:03.020
  • So when God speaks to you, it's only out of love that he's going
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:06.180
  • to tell you anything.
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:07.290
  • It's only out of love that he's going to speak to you.
  • 00:14:08.000 --> 00:14:09.190
  • It's only love that he's going to get across to you.
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:11.160
  • It's only love that he wants you to feel.
  • 00:14:11.170 --> 00:14:13.000
  • It's only love that he wants you to hear.
  • 00:14:13.010 --> 00:14:14.100
  • It's only love that he wants you to experience because perfect
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:17.090
  • love casts out fear.
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:21.160
  • And fear is the expectation of bad, so the opposite is love,
  • 00:14:21.170 --> 00:14:24.210
  • so love is the expectation of good.
  • 00:14:24.220 --> 00:14:29.020
  • So when we read--now when we read John 3:16, we can read it
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:32.140
  • a little differently than maybe just the same old, you know,
  • 00:14:32.150 --> 00:14:35.030
  • a guy holding up a sign at a football game, "John 3:16."
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:38.200
  • Let's read it a little differently now.
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:40.160
  • Let's read it with understanding the contrast between love
  • 00:14:40.170 --> 00:14:45.170
  • and fear.
  • 00:14:45.180 --> 00:14:47.020
  • "God so loved the world," right?
  • 00:14:47.030 --> 00:14:49.120
  • "For God so loved the world that he," what?
  • 00:14:49.130 --> 00:14:51.100
  • "That he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:55.030
  • in him should not perish but have everlasting life."
  • 00:14:55.040 --> 00:14:57.070
  • So notice what love does.
  • 00:14:57.080 --> 00:14:59.120
  • Love is accompanied with the greatest gifts of all.
  • 00:14:59.130 --> 00:15:06.020
  • Jesus is the greatest gift of all.
  • 00:15:06.030 --> 00:15:07.280
  • God so loved the world that he gave.
  • 00:15:07.290 --> 00:15:09.140
  • God so loved the world that he gave.
  • 00:15:09.150 --> 00:15:11.020
  • God so loved the world that he gave.
  • 00:15:11.030 --> 00:15:12.180
  • God so loved the world that he gave.
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:14.040
  • You see, we don't need to be goin' to God and saying,
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:16.030
  • "Give me this. Give me that.
  • 00:15:16.040 --> 00:15:17.200
  • Give me this. Give me that."
  • 00:15:17.210 --> 00:15:19.050
  • We need to go to God and say, "Thank you for your love."
  • 00:15:19.060 --> 00:15:21.060
  • Because when you understand God's love, your faith is
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:25.200
  • activated to expect something good.
  • 00:15:25.210 --> 00:15:29.070
  • God--so it says, "God so loved the world that he gave his Son,
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:33.100
  • his only," at the time, only begotten Son, "and whoever
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:37.180
  • believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life."
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:40.160
  • Whoa, what a beautiful--what beautiful news.
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:43.040
  • You can't get any better news than that.
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:45.010
  • So now because of love, we can now expect something good.
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:50.210
  • And Romans 8:32 continues this thought, "So he who did not
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:54.160
  • spare his own Son."
  • 00:15:54.170 --> 00:15:55.270
  • He who did not spare his own Son, what does that equal?
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:58.250
  • Love.
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:01.080
  • What does that equal?
  • 00:16:01.090 --> 00:16:02.180
  • Love.
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:03.290
  • It equals love.
  • 00:16:04.000 --> 00:16:05.090
  • He did not spare his own Son.
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:06.200
  • That's love. That's love.
  • 00:16:06.210 --> 00:16:09.110
  • The cross, Jesus dying on the cross, that's love.
  • 00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:13.000
  • That's love on the cross.
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:14.240
  • That's the demonstration of love.
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:18.130
  • So that that would set your expectation from this point on,
  • 00:16:18.140 --> 00:16:23.140
  • that your expectation would be, "Whoa, because of his love, he
  • 00:16:23.150 --> 00:16:30.170
  • gave me his Son."
  • 00:16:30.180 --> 00:16:33.050
  • "And if he didn't spare his own Son,
  • 00:16:33.060 --> 00:16:37.030
  • but delivered him up for us all,
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:40.110
  • how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?"
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:45.240
  • You don't have to beg, borrow, or steal for God to give
  • 00:16:50.280 --> 00:16:55.020
  • you all things.
  • 00:16:55.030 --> 00:16:57.200
  • It's because of love.
  • 00:16:57.210 --> 00:17:00.090
  • "Well, if I pray long enough, will God--" no.
  • 00:17:00.100 --> 00:17:03.190
  • "What if I'm holy enough?
  • 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:05.000
  • Will God then give--" no.
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:06.210
  • "What if I'm--what if I fast enough?
  • 00:17:06.220 --> 00:17:09.170
  • What if I treat people right enough?
  • 00:17:09.180 --> 00:17:11.170
  • What if I--"
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:13.120
  • See, all of those things are good things to do
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:15.160
  • at the right--in right times, in right seasons, for the right
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:18.000
  • reasons, but if you do them to get something from God, it is
  • 00:17:18.010 --> 00:17:22.260
  • a form of manipulation and God will not be manipulated.
  • 00:17:22.270 --> 00:17:27.290
  • He can't be manipulated.
  • 00:17:28.000 --> 00:17:29.130
  • That's witchcraft, to try to manipulate and get a reaction
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:34.070
  • from God.
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:35.180
  • How many know that with people?
  • 00:17:35.190 --> 00:17:36.280
  • We manipulate them with our emotions.
  • 00:17:36.290 --> 00:17:39.060
  • We want somebody to feel something so that they will
  • 00:17:39.070 --> 00:17:41.040
  • react a certain way towards us.
  • 00:17:41.050 --> 00:17:42.270
  • We want them to feel what we're goin' through so that we'll get
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:47.070
  • their sympathy, or we'll get their attention, or we'll get--
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:49.070
  • it's manipulation.
  • 00:17:49.080 --> 00:17:50.210
  • Just, hey, if you need some attention, just say,
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:52.040
  • "You know what?
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:53.250
  • Could you give me some attention real quick here?"
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:55.180
  • Just come out with it.
  • 00:17:55.190 --> 00:17:56.280
  • Don't be passive aggressive with your pouting, and emotions,
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:18:01.060
  • and negativity, and, "Nobody loves me and nobody cares."
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:04.160
  • You're right, nobody can love that except God.
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:11.050
  • Thank God he loves you.
  • 00:18:11.060 --> 00:18:13.280
  • But look, this shift in our expectation is what I'm
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:19.160
  • after here today, that if because he loved us he gave us
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:24.260
  • his Son, and if with his Son he will not withhold anything,
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:30.190
  • and he'll freely give us all things, then it is the love
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:34.060
  • of God that we should be putting the weight of our faith in.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:39.040
  • My confidence then today is in the love that God has for me,
  • 00:18:39.050 --> 00:18:43.020
  • and that will result in me having the capacity to receive
  • 00:18:43.030 --> 00:18:48.160
  • anything I need from God because I know that love gives.
  • 00:18:48.170 --> 00:18:52.110
  • Love gives. Love gives.
  • 00:18:52.120 --> 00:18:55.020
  • Love gives. Love doesn't sell, love gives.
  • 00:18:55.030 --> 00:18:57.230
  • Love doesn't trade, love gives.
  • 00:18:57.240 --> 00:18:59.030
  • God gives and all I gotta do is believe that kind of love
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:02.030
  • and then I will expect good things to happen in my life
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:06.160
  • every day.
  • 00:19:06.170 --> 00:19:07.270
  • No matter how bad it is, somehow God's gonna turn it around.
  • 00:19:07.280 --> 00:19:12.120
  • Listen to what I'm about to say.
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:15.110
  • If you're born again, God never leaves you.
  • 00:19:15.120 --> 00:19:18.140
  • He will never leave you or forsake you.
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:20.060
  • Can anybody say amen to that?
  • 00:19:20.070 --> 00:19:22.170
  • Okay, he never leaves you, but we think that his love is
  • 00:19:22.180 --> 00:19:31.210
  • far from us or we think, "God can't love me after that,"
  • 00:19:31.220 --> 00:19:37.200
  • or "God doesn't love that about me."
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:39.240
  • He loves everything about you.
  • 00:19:39.250 --> 00:19:41.200
  • He doesn't love your sin, he doesn't love your mistakes,
  • 00:19:41.210 --> 00:19:44.020
  • but he loves you in spite of them and he loves you no less
  • 00:19:44.030 --> 00:19:49.190
  • and no more when you obey or when you disobey.
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:53.110
  • My point is this, it's to get to the point where you realize
  • 00:19:53.120 --> 00:19:57.240
  • there's no separation between you and God and no
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:20:01.100
  • separation between you.
  • 00:20:01.110 --> 00:20:02.240
  • Jesus bridged you to God, so there is therefore now no
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:07.100
  • separation between you and God and nothing can separate you
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:11.070
  • from his love.
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:12.180
  • Now, if nothing can separate you from his love and if love always
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:17.080
  • gives, then there's nothing to be afraid of no matter what
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:20.180
  • your need is, no matter what you're lacking.
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:23.140
  • Whatever you need, whatever is missing in your life, if you
  • 00:20:23.150 --> 00:20:27.160
  • will believe the love that God has for you, then that will
  • 00:20:27.170 --> 00:20:31.090
  • shape your expectation and you will begin to expect good
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:35.220
  • to happen no matter how bad your day is, no matter how bad your
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:39.110
  • life is, no matter how bad your situation is, no matter how bad
  • 00:20:39.120 --> 00:20:42.140
  • your circumstance is.
  • 00:20:42.150 --> 00:20:43.250
  • And this is where--all suffering comes from
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:48.260
  • a belief system.
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:50.060
  • All suffering is built upon a belief system.
  • 00:20:50.070 --> 00:20:53.110
  • You can always trace back why you are suffering to something
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:21:00.110
  • that you believe.
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:01.210
  • Because there are many people that go through the same things
  • 00:21:01.220 --> 00:21:04.030
  • that we go through.
  • 00:21:04.040 --> 00:21:05.130
  • There are people that have gone through the same things that
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:06.240
  • I've gone through or worse, but they weren't suffering
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:09.110
  • because they believed God could deliver them from it and they
  • 00:21:09.120 --> 00:21:12.240
  • believed God would deliver them from it.
  • 00:21:12.250 --> 00:21:14.200
  • You see, the problem is not-- the suffering doesn't come
  • 00:21:14.210 --> 00:21:19.110
  • from the problem, the suffering comes from what we believe
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:21.150
  • about the problem.
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:24.020
  • So when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are thrown
  • 00:21:24.030 --> 00:21:26.150
  • into a fiery furnace, that seems like suffering, but that
  • 00:21:26.160 --> 00:21:30.070
  • situation was not cause for them suffering, why?
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:34.020
  • Because they believed God would deliver them.
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:37.080
  • They said, "If you throw us--If you throw us in the fiery
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:41.210
  • furnace, O great king, if you throw us in there, our God will
  • 00:21:41.220 --> 00:21:45.180
  • deliver us.
  • 00:21:45.190 --> 00:21:47.030
  • If you don't throw us in there, we're not bowing down to you."
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:51.260
  • So they believed that God would never leave them, and even
  • 00:21:51.270 --> 00:21:58.200
  • in a fiery furnace, they did not suffer because of
  • 00:21:58.210 --> 00:22:04.120
  • what they believed.
  • 00:22:04.130 --> 00:22:06.250
  • Gregory Dickow: Well, Jesus really is the lifter
  • 00:22:11.040 --> 00:22:12.210
  • of our heads.
  • 00:22:12.220 --> 00:22:14.020
  • And has something got you down, or weighed you down,
  • 00:22:14.030 --> 00:22:16.130
  • or held you down?
  • 00:22:16.140 --> 00:22:19.000
  • Jesus is gonna lift your head to see what he sees, to expect
  • 00:22:19.010 --> 00:22:23.060
  • what he's promised, and to walk with confidence in the fact that
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:26.220
  • his goodness and mercy are gonna follow you all the days
  • 00:22:26.230 --> 00:22:30.050
  • of your life.
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:31.150
  • You know, in every one of our lives, we can expect either good
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:33.240
  • or expect bad.
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:35.040
  • Living in a world that is motivated and driven by fear,
  • 00:22:35.050 --> 00:22:38.090
  • it's easy to expect bad things to happen, but what really
  • 00:22:38.100 --> 00:22:41.090
  • is fear?
  • 00:22:41.100 --> 00:22:42.190
  • It's the opposite of love, as you heard me talk about today.
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:44.120
  • And no matter what's going on in your life, I wanna
  • 00:22:44.130 --> 00:22:46.070
  • encourage you to get to the point where you realize
  • 00:22:46.080 --> 00:22:49.210
  • there's no separation between you and God
  • 00:22:49.220 --> 00:22:52.130
  • and absolutely nothing that can separate you from his love.
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:56.250
  • And when you get ahold of that, everything changes.
  • 00:22:56.260 --> 00:22:58.220
  • You see, fear is nothing more than faith in bad news, and love
  • 00:22:58.230 --> 00:23:04.050
  • is faith in good news.
  • 00:23:04.060 --> 00:23:05.150
  • Expect God to bring you out of this dark season if
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:07.280
  • you're in one.
  • 00:23:07.290 --> 00:23:09.090
  • Expect the bad to turn to good and get better and look
  • 00:23:09.100 --> 00:23:13.060
  • up expecting God to be the lifter of your head today.
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:17.240
  • Now listen, I've got something really special for you that I
  • 00:23:17.250 --> 00:23:20.050
  • want to tell you about, but before I get to that, if
  • 00:23:20.060 --> 00:23:22.270
  • you're joining me today and you haven't experienced the goodness
  • 00:23:22.280 --> 00:23:25.120
  • of God in your life, if you haven't received the promise
  • 00:23:25.130 --> 00:23:28.190
  • of salvation in your life yet and received Jesus as your
  • 00:23:28.200 --> 00:23:32.080
  • Lord and Savior, let me pray with you right now, right where
  • 00:23:32.090 --> 00:23:34.200
  • you are.
  • 00:23:34.210 --> 00:23:36.010
  • Now, I have something for everybody, but for you that
  • 00:23:36.020 --> 00:23:37.150
  • want to be saved, pray this right now.
  • 00:23:37.160 --> 00:23:39.190
  • No matter what's going on in your life, join me.
  • 00:23:39.200 --> 00:23:41.140
  • Just say, "Heavenly Father."
  • 00:23:41.150 --> 00:23:42.250
  • That's it, just say, "Heavenly Father, I believe Jesus died
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:46.140
  • for my sins and rose from the dead."
  • 00:23:46.150 --> 00:23:49.280
  • Just say that.
  • 00:23:49.290 --> 00:23:51.090
  • "The blood of Jesus cleanses me from all my sins.
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:55.210
  • I am now a child of God, amen."
  • 00:23:55.220 --> 00:24:00.170
  • It's that simple, folks.
  • 00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:01.270
  • Jesus did all the work.
  • 00:24:01.280 --> 00:24:03.070
  • All you need to do is receive it.
  • 00:24:03.080 --> 00:24:04.180
  • If you prayed along with me, you are now a child of God.
  • 00:24:04.190 --> 00:24:06.140
