  • Gregory Dickow: Anger isthe fruit of rejection.
  • 00:00:01.213 --> 00:00:03.415
  • Lust is the fruit of rejection.
  • 00:00:03.449 --> 00:00:05.250
  • So if you go around living yourlife to try to get rid of my
  • 00:00:05.284 --> 00:00:07.753
  • anger, get rid of my lust, getrid of my this, get rid of my
  • 00:00:07.786 --> 00:00:09.855
  • depression, get rid of mysadness, get rid of my
  • 00:00:09.888 --> 00:00:11.323
  • loneliness, you will befrustrated and disappointed
  • 00:00:11.356 --> 00:00:14.193
  • the rest of your life.
  • 00:00:14.226 --> 00:00:15.527
  • But if you realize those arejust fruits, I'm not going
  • 00:00:15.561 --> 00:00:17.229
  • to worry about the fruit level.
  • 00:00:17.262 --> 00:00:18.564
  • I'm gonna deal with itat the root level and the root
  • 00:00:18.597 --> 00:00:20.332
  • is rejection.

  • Gregory Dickow: Well, today Iwanna talk to you
  • 00:00:42.988 --> 00:00:44.289
  • about the solution to allof man's problems.
  • 00:00:44.323 --> 00:00:46.758
  • That's right, all of man'sproblems can be summarized
  • 00:00:46.792 --> 00:00:49.528
  • in one word.
  • 00:00:49.561 --> 00:00:50.863
  • And today, we're gonna dealwith that one word, that one
  • 00:00:50.896 --> 00:00:52.898
  • thing that is causing our fears,our anxieties, anger,
  • 00:00:52.931 --> 00:00:57.369
  • addictions, depression,and so much more.
  • 00:00:57.402 --> 00:00:59.738
  • Most of us on the surface tryto resist and fight
  • 00:00:59.771 --> 00:01:02.808
  • the temptation to be afraid,to be angry, to be anxious.
  • 00:01:02.841 --> 00:01:05.944
  • We fight and we try to overcomeaddictions or depression,
  • 00:01:05.978 --> 00:01:09.047
  • but we're just dealingwith the fruit of the problem.
  • 00:01:09.081 --> 00:01:11.884
  • And no matter how much bad fruitwe pluck, the root keeps feeding
  • 00:01:11.917 --> 00:01:16.188
  • the branches with more badfruit.
  • 00:01:16.221 --> 00:01:18.357
  • You see, the universal rootto all of man's problems is
  • 00:01:18.390 --> 00:01:21.493
  • found in one word: "rejection."
  • 00:01:21.527 --> 00:01:24.329
  • Mankind lives rejected, thatfeeling of shame, embarrassment,
  • 00:01:24.363 --> 00:01:28.934
  • that feeling of being unacceptedand often unloved deep
  • 00:01:28.967 --> 00:01:32.538
  • down in our soul.
  • 00:01:32.571 --> 00:01:33.906
  • Rejection is also ourgreatest fear.
  • 00:01:33.939 --> 00:01:36.275
  • We go to great lengths to beaccepted and to avoid rejection,
  • 00:01:36.308 --> 00:01:39.678
  • and this is the strong man thatJesus talked about in Mark 3:27.
  • 00:01:39.711 --> 00:01:44.316
  • And once that strong man isbound, we can plunder all
  • 00:01:44.349 --> 00:01:48.086
  • his possessions.
  • 00:01:48.120 --> 00:01:49.454
  • Once we attack this rootof rejection, we can see all
  • 00:01:49.488 --> 00:01:52.457
  • that's been stolen from usrestored, all that's been
  • 00:01:52.491 --> 00:01:55.160
  • damaged healed, and truly livethe life of radical acceptance
  • 00:01:55.194 --> 00:01:59.431
  • that God created us for.
  • 00:01:59.464 --> 00:02:01.066
  • Are you ready for that?
  • 00:02:01.099 --> 00:02:02.434
  • Check this out.
  • 00:02:02.467 --> 00:02:03.936
  • Gregory Dickow: Let's talkabout the root for a moment.
  • 00:02:04.736 --> 00:02:07.773
  • The word "root" means a startingpoint.
  • 00:02:07.806 --> 00:02:10.409
  • This is where it starts from,the point of origin.
  • 00:02:10.442 --> 00:02:13.946
  • It's the first growthfrom the seed.
  • 00:02:13.979 --> 00:02:16.114
  • We know that seeds are buriedin the ground, they germinate,
  • 00:02:16.148 --> 00:02:20.819
  • and roots develop and godown before the fruit
  • 00:02:20.852 --> 00:02:24.923
  • and branches are ever seenabove the ground.
  • 00:02:24.957 --> 00:02:27.226
  • That's how a root works.
  • 00:02:27.259 --> 00:02:29.027
  • So a root of rejection buriedfrom your upbringing, from many
  • 00:02:29.061 --> 00:02:34.666
  • sources and many causes, thatproduced rejection, and first
  • 00:02:34.700 --> 00:02:39.838
  • of all it comes from the devil,but secondly it comes
  • 00:02:39.871 --> 00:02:42.608
  • from people and it comesfrom life experiences.
  • 00:02:42.641 --> 00:02:45.510
  • It comes from what we gothrough in life.
  • 00:02:45.544 --> 00:02:47.279
  • It comes through--look,rejection is going to come to us
  • 00:02:47.312 --> 00:02:49.881
  • all and rejection doesn't--rejection doesn't have the power
  • 00:02:49.915 --> 00:02:53.352
  • to destroy us, but it's how wereact and respond to rejection
  • 00:02:53.385 --> 00:02:57.155
  • that determines whether it'sgoing to destroy us or whether
  • 00:02:57.189 --> 00:02:59.758
  • it's going to have no effect, noill effect on our lives.
  • 00:02:59.791 --> 00:03:03.629
  • Because the Spirit--see, beingrejected is going to happen
  • 00:03:03.662 --> 00:03:08.400
  • to all of us, but beingcontrolled by that rejection
  • 00:03:08.433 --> 00:03:12.704
  • doesn't have to have controlover us.
  • 00:03:12.738 --> 00:03:15.374
  • We don't have to be controlledby it.
  • 00:03:15.407 --> 00:03:16.842
  • It's the spirit of rejectionthat we want to deal with,
  • 00:03:16.875 --> 00:03:19.745
  • the root of rejection that wewant to deal with.
  • 00:03:19.778 --> 00:03:21.546
  • And then when people reject you,you see, when you have that root
  • 00:03:21.580 --> 00:03:24.883
  • in you, when any--whenever youfeel rejected by somebody, you
  • 00:03:24.916 --> 00:03:29.187
  • recoil, and you want to avoid,and you want to run from it
  • 00:03:29.221 --> 00:03:33.558
  • because--and you think that'sthe source of the problem.
  • 00:03:33.592 --> 00:03:36.161
  • They rejected me and that's whyI feel this way.
  • 00:03:36.194 --> 00:03:38.163
  • But the truth is the spiritof rejection is why you feel
  • 00:03:38.196 --> 00:03:41.300
  • this way, and all somebody didwas touch the nerve and you--
  • 00:03:41.333 --> 00:03:45.737
  • and the root system felt itbecause that's what's rooted
  • 00:03:45.771 --> 00:03:49.408
  • inside of you.
  • 00:03:49.441 --> 00:03:50.776
  • So when someone mistreats you,when someone talks about you,
  • 00:03:50.809 --> 00:03:52.911
  • when someone says somethingor does something, or somebody
  • 00:03:52.944 --> 00:03:55.113
  • neglects you in some way,or walks by and doesn't say hi,
  • 00:03:55.147 --> 00:03:58.684
  • all the sudden your spiritof rejection begins to rear its
  • 00:03:58.717 --> 00:04:02.020
  • ugly head and projectupon the other person that
  • 00:04:02.054 --> 00:04:05.891
  • they're the source of it.
  • 00:04:05.924 --> 00:04:07.225
  • When in truth, life is goingto reject you and people are
  • 00:04:07.259 --> 00:04:10.295
  • going to reject you.
  • 00:04:10.329 --> 00:04:11.630
  • People are gonna say no to you.
  • 00:04:11.663 --> 00:04:12.998
  • If you've ever been in sales, ifyou've ever tried to date
  • 00:04:13.031 --> 00:04:15.033
  • somebody, if you ever--you'regonna be rejected at times.
  • 00:04:15.067 --> 00:04:18.136
  • You're going to hear nosometimes.
  • 00:04:18.170 --> 00:04:19.971
  • But it will not affect you ifthe root has been uprooted
  • 00:04:20.005 --> 00:04:24.443
  • and you're no longer controlledby that thing.
  • 00:04:24.476 --> 00:04:26.645
  • Somebody can reject youand you're like, "Hey, no
  • 00:04:26.678 --> 00:04:28.380
  • problem.
  • 00:04:28.413 --> 00:04:29.748
  • Go on to the next person.
  • 00:04:29.781 --> 00:04:31.083
  • Oh, he didn't like me.
  • 00:04:31.116 --> 00:04:32.417
  • So what?
  • 00:04:32.451 --> 00:04:33.785
  • His loss.
  • 00:04:33.819 --> 00:04:35.120
  • Somebody else is better for mewaiting out there.
  • 00:04:35.153 --> 00:04:36.488
  • I got somebody good coming myway.
  • 00:04:36.521 --> 00:04:37.823
  • Some better man is comingfrom that man.
  • 00:04:37.856 --> 00:04:39.891
  • If he rejected me, that's hisproblem.
  • 00:04:39.925 --> 00:04:45.063
  • Forget him."
  • 00:04:45.097 --> 00:04:48.700
  • Have you ever said, "I feelsad," or "I feel so lonely,"
  • 00:04:48.734 --> 00:04:54.873
  • or "I feel so depressed"?
  • 00:04:54.906 --> 00:04:56.308
  • Or you fill in the blank, "Ifeel so whatever.
  • 00:04:56.341 --> 00:04:58.577
  • I feel so mad.
  • 00:04:58.610 --> 00:04:59.911
  • I feel so angry.
  • 00:04:59.945 --> 00:05:01.246
  • Ooh, I feel like I gotta getback at that person," or "I feel
  • 00:05:01.279 --> 00:05:03.281
  • so lonely," or "I feelso discouraged and I don't
  • 00:05:03.315 --> 00:05:06.718
  • know why.
  • 00:05:06.752 --> 00:05:08.253
  • I feel this and I don't knowwhy.
  • 00:05:08.286 --> 00:05:11.156
  • I feel this all the time and Idon't know why."
  • 00:05:11.189 --> 00:05:13.792
  • And so life begins its searchto deal with that feeling,
  • 00:05:13.825 --> 00:05:19.231
  • and to drug that feeling,or to mask that feeling,
  • 00:05:19.264 --> 00:05:24.736
  • to cover up that feeling, getrid of that feeling, stop
  • 00:05:24.770 --> 00:05:27.672
  • feeling that.
  • 00:05:27.706 --> 00:05:29.007
  • I gotta feel something else.
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:30.375
  • I've got to subdue that feeling.
  • 00:05:30.409 --> 00:05:31.743
  • I've gotta get rid of thatfeeling or I've got to attach
  • 00:05:31.777 --> 00:05:34.646
  • that feeling to somebody elseand give blame for why.
  • 00:05:34.679 --> 00:05:38.049
  • I feel this way because of whatthey did, or what they said,
  • 00:05:38.083 --> 00:05:40.485
  • or what she said, or what hedid.
  • 00:05:40.519 --> 00:05:42.087
  • And we begin to dealwith the feeling the wrong way.
  • 00:05:42.120 --> 00:05:46.124
  • The feelings of, "Oh, I feel sadall the time.
  • 00:05:46.158 --> 00:05:48.960
  • I don't know why.I feel mad all the time.
  • 00:05:48.994 --> 00:05:51.096
  • I don't know why.I feel lonely a lot.
  • 00:05:51.129 --> 00:05:52.697
  • I don't know why.I feel depressed a lot.
  • 00:05:52.731 --> 00:05:54.099
  • I don't know why.
  • 00:05:54.132 --> 00:05:56.234
  • I'm smiling on the outside,but I'm crying on the inside
  • 00:05:56.268 --> 00:06:00.172
  • and I don't know why."
  • 00:06:00.205 --> 00:06:02.574
  • And until we get to the rootof that, until we can answer
  • 00:06:02.607 --> 00:06:11.116
  • the why, all we'll ever do islive our lives to cover up those
  • 00:06:11.149 --> 00:06:17.456
  • feelings, or to pacify them,or to justify them, or to fix
  • 00:06:17.489 --> 00:06:24.496
  • blame to somebody else for whywe feel that way.
  • 00:06:24.529 --> 00:06:28.467
  • And then little by little, wecut everyone out of our lives
  • 00:06:28.500 --> 00:06:31.336
  • who made us feel that wayand then we never have anybody
  • 00:06:31.369 --> 00:06:35.140
  • in our lives and we are lonely.
  • 00:06:35.173 --> 00:06:37.676
  • And we are now livingin the very thing we were most
  • 00:06:37.709 --> 00:06:40.779
  • fearful of, being alone.
  • 00:06:40.812 --> 00:06:42.848
  • Now, we end up livingin the very thing that we were
  • 00:06:42.881 --> 00:06:44.983
  • most fearful of, beingdepressed.
  • 00:06:45.016 --> 00:06:46.952
  • Now we live the rest of ourlives in the very thing that we
  • 00:06:46.985 --> 00:06:51.189
  • feared the most, being madand angry all the time, being
  • 00:06:51.223 --> 00:06:54.192
  • unhappy and being miserable allthe time.
  • 00:06:54.226 --> 00:06:56.695
  • Why?
  • 00:06:56.728 --> 00:06:58.063
  • Because we're dealingwith the feelings and we're
  • 00:06:58.096 --> 00:06:59.898
  • trying to cover up the feelingrather than recognizing
  • 00:06:59.931 --> 00:07:02.267
  • the feeling is the cryof a root.
  • 00:07:02.300 --> 00:07:04.870
  • And if we hear the cry of thatroot, we can get to that root
  • 00:07:04.903 --> 00:07:08.206
  • and uproot it.
  • 00:07:08.240 --> 00:07:09.541
  • And the root is rejection.
  • 00:07:09.574 --> 00:07:10.909
  • The root is rejection.
  • 00:07:10.942 --> 00:07:12.244
  • I'm here to tell ya, the root isrejection.
  • 00:07:12.277 --> 00:07:13.979
  • You can go outta here and think,"No, the root is this.
  • 00:07:14.012 --> 00:07:15.447
  • The root is that.
  • 00:07:15.480 --> 00:07:16.781
  • The root is this.
  • 00:07:16.815 --> 00:07:18.116
  • The root is that."
  • 00:07:18.149 --> 00:07:19.484
  • I'm here to tell ya, I'vestudied it, I've prayed
  • 00:07:19.518 --> 00:07:20.819
  • about it, I've found itin the Bible, I've seen it in my
  • 00:07:20.852 --> 00:07:22.187
  • life, I've seen it in everyperson's life that I've ever
  • 00:07:22.220 --> 00:07:24.089
  • talked to, ever counseled, everanswered questions to, it's
  • 00:07:24.122 --> 00:07:26.558
  • rejection.
  • 00:07:26.591 --> 00:07:27.893
  • It's rejection.
  • 00:07:27.926 --> 00:07:29.227
  • Anger is the fruit of rejection.
  • 00:07:29.261 --> 00:07:30.829
  • Lust is the fruit of rejection.
  • 00:07:30.862 --> 00:07:32.697
  • So if you go around living yourlife to try to get rid of my
  • 00:07:32.731 --> 00:07:35.200
  • anger, get rid of my lust, getrid of my this, get rid of my
  • 00:07:35.233 --> 00:07:37.302
  • depression, get rid of mysadness, get rid of my
  • 00:07:37.335 --> 00:07:38.803
  • loneliness, you will befrustrated and disappointed
  • 00:07:38.837 --> 00:07:41.673
  • the rest of your life.
  • 00:07:41.706 --> 00:07:43.008
  • But if you realize those arejust fruits, I'm not going
  • 00:07:43.041 --> 00:07:44.676
  • to worry about the fruit level.
  • 00:07:44.709 --> 00:07:46.044
  • I'm gonna deal with itat the root level and the root
  • 00:07:46.077 --> 00:07:47.812
  • is rejection.
  • 00:07:47.846 --> 00:07:49.581
  • I'mma pull that sucker out.
  • 00:07:49.614 --> 00:07:53.018
  • I'm going to pull that suckerout and I'm gonna let--watch
  • 00:07:53.051 --> 00:07:56.321
  • the fruit die and I'm goingto laugh as the fruit of lust
  • 00:07:56.354 --> 00:07:59.424
  • dies, as the fruit of angershrivels up and dies, as
  • 00:07:59.457 --> 00:08:02.827
  • the fruit of rebellion shrivelsup and dies, as the fruit
  • 00:08:02.861 --> 00:08:05.797
  • of disappointment shrivelsup and dies, all of the--as
  • 00:08:05.830 --> 00:08:08.967
  • the fruit of anxiety shrivelsup and dies.
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:12.637
  • I'm going to laugh at its death.
  • 00:08:12.671 --> 00:08:14.906
  • I'm going to laugh as it--asthe fruit begins to get brown,
  • 00:08:14.940 --> 00:08:19.744
  • and old, and shriveled up,and moldy.
  • 00:08:19.778 --> 00:08:22.614
  • I'm going to watch it die.
  • 00:08:22.647 --> 00:08:23.949
  • I'm going to watch it then fallhelplessly to the ground
  • 00:08:23.982 --> 00:08:28.219
  • and become the dungof the earth.
  • 00:08:28.253 --> 00:08:29.821
  • And I'm going to laugh at itsdestruction the way it laughed
  • 00:08:29.854 --> 00:08:33.358
  • at me as it mocked me and mademe feel rejected all the days
  • 00:08:33.391 --> 00:08:37.729
  • of my life.
  • 00:08:37.762 --> 00:08:39.464
  • Are you with me here?
  • 00:08:39.497 --> 00:08:40.832
  • Am I in the right place?
  • 00:08:40.865 --> 00:08:42.167
  • Am I in the right place heretoday?
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:46.304
  • Now, there are four primaryfruits to rejection.
  • 00:08:46.338 --> 00:08:54.512
  • Let me go through them as fastas I can.
  • 00:08:54.546 --> 00:08:56.081
  • Number one, doubt and fear.
  • 00:08:56.114 --> 00:08:59.150
  • When we doubt that we're loved,we become afraid that we won't
  • 00:08:59.184 --> 00:09:03.388
  • be loved and so we livean anxious life.
  • 00:09:03.421 --> 00:09:07.225
  • Like, "Ugh, I need somebodyto love me.
  • 00:09:07.258 --> 00:09:09.194
  • I got--I wonder if I'm evergonna be loved."
  • 00:09:09.227 --> 00:09:10.829
  • So we live in anxiety.
  • 00:09:10.862 --> 00:09:12.230
  • Anxiety is the result of notbeing secure in God's love.
  • 00:09:12.263 --> 00:09:16.067
  • Anxiety, listen to me, anxietyis the result of not being
  • 00:09:16.101 --> 00:09:19.971
  • secure in God's love.
  • 00:09:20.005 --> 00:09:22.407
  • Anxiety, we feel anxious.
  • 00:09:22.440 --> 00:09:24.109
  • We feel worried.
  • 00:09:24.142 --> 00:09:25.443
  • See, if you're secure in God'slove, you know that if he took
  • 00:09:25.477 --> 00:09:27.545
  • care of the lilies of the fieldand the birds of the air, how
  • 00:09:27.579 --> 00:09:30.315
  • much more will he take careof you, you who are worth
  • 00:09:30.348 --> 00:09:32.651
  • so much more than the liliesof the field and the birds
  • 00:09:32.684 --> 00:09:35.286
  • of the air?
  • 00:09:35.320 --> 00:09:37.288
  • You see, being secure in God'slove takes worry away.
  • 00:09:37.322 --> 00:09:41.826
  • Number two, the second fruitof rejection--
  • 00:09:41.860 --> 00:09:44.796
  • These are primary now.
  • 00:09:44.829 --> 00:09:47.332
  • There are other things,but these are the primary ones.
  • 00:09:47.365 --> 00:09:49.167
  • Anger.
  • 00:09:49.200 --> 00:09:50.802
  • Anger at who?
  • 00:09:50.835 --> 00:09:52.137
  • Anger at whoever you feelrejected by.
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:54.639
  • Anger at God, anger at others,anger at yourself.
  • 00:09:54.673 --> 00:09:58.910
  • And what does that cause?
  • 00:09:58.943 --> 00:10:00.612
  • It causes you to reject others.
  • 00:10:00.645 --> 00:10:02.380
  • When you feel rejected and youfeel angry, you--when you feel
  • 00:10:02.414 --> 00:10:08.386
  • rejected, you will then feelanger.
  • 00:10:08.420 --> 00:10:10.922
  • And that anger projectedon others will cause you
  • 00:10:10.955 --> 00:10:16.661
  • to reject them and they won'twant to be around you.
  • 00:10:16.695 --> 00:10:21.132
  • Number three, self pity.
  • 00:10:21.166 --> 00:10:24.269
  • Self-pity.
  • 00:10:24.302 --> 00:10:26.204
  • Self-pity is the fruit.
  • 00:10:26.237 --> 00:10:29.107
  • When you feel rejected, you willalways feel sorry for yourself.
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:32.343
  • "Oh, they treat me that way.
  • 00:10:32.377 --> 00:10:33.712
  • How could they treat me thatway?
  • 00:10:33.745 --> 00:10:35.046
  • How come they didn't include me?How come nobody called me?
  • 00:10:35.080 --> 00:10:37.749
  • How come nobody texted me?Nobody loves me?
  • 00:10:37.782 --> 00:10:40.452
  • Nobody--" self-pity, feelingsorry for myself.
  • 00:10:40.485 --> 00:10:42.120
  • What happens to a person whofeels sorry for themselves?
  • 00:10:42.153 --> 00:10:45.623
  • They're depressed all the time.
  • 00:10:45.657 --> 00:10:47.859
  • Depressed, they're sad, and youknow what else?
  • 00:10:47.892 --> 00:10:51.229
  • They have very shallowrelationships.
  • 00:10:51.262 --> 00:10:53.598
  • Their relationships are shallow.
  • 00:10:53.631 --> 00:10:56.167
  • The way they relate to peopleand the way they talk to people,
  • 00:10:56.201 --> 00:10:58.570
  • shallow.
  • 00:10:58.603 --> 00:10:59.938
  • There's no depth because they'reafraid of what's inside.
  • 00:10:59.971 --> 00:11:03.975
  • They're afraid of the monsterthat they can't name.
  • 00:11:04.008 --> 00:11:07.178
  • They don't know.
  • 00:11:07.212 --> 00:11:08.546
  • The monster is rejectionand so we live shallow because I
  • 00:11:08.580 --> 00:11:12.117
  • don't want to trigger somethingin you and I don't want
  • 00:11:12.150 --> 00:11:17.255
  • to trigger what's in me.
  • 00:11:17.288 --> 00:11:19.023
  • I don't know what it is,but whatever it is, I can't
  • 00:11:19.057 --> 00:11:22.060
  • explain it.
  • 00:11:22.093 --> 00:11:23.428
  • I just don't want to trigger itso I'm going to live
  • 00:11:23.461 --> 00:11:24.763
  • on the surface level.
  • 00:11:24.796 --> 00:11:26.131
  • And that comes from the spiritof rejection and that's why we
  • 00:11:26.164 --> 00:11:30.168
  • have superficial relationshipsat times and with most of our
  • 00:11:30.201 --> 00:11:34.072
  • relationships when we're dealingwith that spirit of rejection.
  • 00:11:34.105 --> 00:11:37.976
  • And you might think you havereally healthy relationships,
  • 00:11:38.009 --> 00:11:40.645
  • but they're healthy becausethey're not abusive or they're
  • 00:11:40.678 --> 00:11:44.415
  • healthy because you don't yelland scream at each other.
  • 00:11:44.449 --> 00:11:47.519
  • They're healthy because youthink, "Hey, we at least have
  • 00:11:47.552 --> 00:11:50.188
  • peace," but it's only becauseyou're on the surface of all
  • 00:11:50.221 --> 00:11:53.158
  • your relationships because youknow underneath there is this
  • 00:11:53.191 --> 00:11:56.094
  • root that is just waitingto erupt and you don't want
  • 00:11:56.127 --> 00:11:59.864
  • to ever erupt it--make iterupt.
  • 00:11:59.898 --> 00:12:02.734
  • And number four is denial.
  • 00:12:02.767 --> 00:12:05.236
  • Denial, this is the fruitof rejection.
  • 00:12:05.270 --> 00:12:08.206
  • We deny, we deny, we deny.
  • 00:12:08.239 --> 00:12:09.541
  • I could, you know, even put itto you this way, is people that
  • 00:12:09.574 --> 00:12:12.577
  • can't be confronted, people thatif you say something to them
  • 00:12:12.610 --> 00:12:16.214
  • to correct them, they can't takeit.
  • 00:12:16.247 --> 00:12:17.749
  • They crumble at any criticism.
  • 00:12:17.782 --> 00:12:21.019
  • They crumble when you confrontthem.
  • 00:12:21.052 --> 00:12:23.087
  • They crumble when you challengethem.
  • 00:12:23.121 --> 00:12:25.924
  • They crumble when you pointsomething out because they're
  • 00:12:25.957 --> 00:12:29.027
  • already crippled on the insideby the spirit of rejection,
  • 00:12:29.060 --> 00:12:32.697
  • and so when you correct them,they interpret correction
  • 00:12:32.730 --> 00:12:35.366
  • as rejection.
  • 00:12:35.400 --> 00:12:36.734
  • They interpret a strong wordof challenge as rejection.
  • 00:12:36.768 --> 00:12:42.440
  • They interpret anything that youdon't like about them as
  • 00:12:42.473 --> 00:12:45.677
  • rejection.
  • 00:12:45.710 --> 00:12:47.011
  • So if somebody says, "Well, howdo you--you know, how do you
  • 00:12:47.045 --> 00:12:49.681
  • like--" Don't open the door ifyou're not ready to be--to deal
  • 00:12:49.714 --> 00:12:52.951
  • with rejection.
  • 00:12:52.984 --> 00:12:54.319
  • If you haven't dealtwith the spirit of rejection,
  • 00:12:54.352 --> 00:12:56.254
  • you can't even ask somebody,"How do you like my hair?
  • 00:12:56.287 --> 00:12:59.657
  • How do you like what I'mwearing?
  • 00:12:59.691 --> 00:13:01.559
  • How do you like this?
  • 00:13:01.593 --> 00:13:02.894
  • How do you like--how do youlike the job I did on that?"
  • 00:13:02.927 --> 00:13:05.129
  • And you're what--you're reallysaying is, "Like my hair.
  • 00:13:05.163 --> 00:13:09.634
  • Like what I did.
  • 00:13:09.667 --> 00:13:11.336
  • Like what I said.
  • 00:13:11.369 --> 00:13:12.837
  • Like what I posted.
  • 00:13:12.871 --> 00:13:14.339
  • Like the picture of me.
  • 00:13:14.372 --> 00:13:15.807
  • Like, like, like me.
  • 00:13:15.840 --> 00:13:17.141
  • Love, love, love me.
  • 00:13:17.175 --> 00:13:18.476
  • Like, like, like me."
  • 00:13:18.509 --> 00:13:19.844
  • And as soon as they give anyhint of not loving you
  • 00:13:19.878 --> 00:13:23.581
  • and being, "Oh my God, you areJesus himself," you're like,
  • 00:13:23.615 --> 00:13:30.255
  • "Oh, you rejected me.
  • 00:13:30.288 --> 00:13:32.523
  • You don't love me enough.
  • 00:13:32.557 --> 00:13:33.858
  • You don't do this enough for me.
  • 00:13:33.892 --> 00:13:35.226
  • You don't do this enough for me.
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:36.561
  • You must see me this way.
  • 00:13:36.594 --> 00:13:37.929
  • You must see me that way."
  • 00:13:37.962 --> 00:13:39.264
  • Don't set yourself up for thatthen, darling.
  • 00:13:39.297 --> 00:13:44.202
  • Deal with that root, man.
  • 00:13:44.235 --> 00:13:45.803
  • Then people can say anythingand it won't bother you.
  • 00:13:45.837 --> 00:13:50.842
  • Oh man, I'm way behind.
  • 00:13:50.875 --> 00:13:53.177
  • Way behind.
  • 00:13:53.211 --> 00:13:54.512
  • Does this make any senseto anybody?
  • 00:13:54.545 --> 00:13:55.880
  • So the definition for rejectionis simple.
  • 00:13:55.914 --> 00:13:57.982
  • When you're wrongly hurtby words, by actions,
  • 00:13:58.016 --> 00:14:02.587
  • or by the neglect of otherpeople.
  • 00:14:02.620 --> 00:14:05.056
  • When you're wrongly hurtby their actions, by their
  • 00:14:05.089 --> 00:14:06.958
  • words, or by their neglect.
  • 00:14:06.991 --> 00:14:08.459
  • It might not even beintentional.
  • 00:14:08.493 --> 00:14:10.595
  • They just neglected to say hi.
  • 00:14:10.628 --> 00:14:12.196
  • They neglected to say, "I loveyou."
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:13.564
  • They neglected to say--theyneglected to say how great
  • 00:14:13.598 --> 00:14:16.034
  • you are.
  • 00:14:16.067 --> 00:14:17.402
  • And their neglect--parentsneglect their children, and as
  • 00:14:17.435 --> 00:14:21.272
  • a result of the neglecting, itcauses the child to begin
  • 00:14:21.306 --> 00:14:26.377
  • to view life through the eyesof rejection and needing
  • 00:14:26.411 --> 00:14:30.748
  • for the rest of his life or herlife to perform in order to get
  • 00:14:30.782 --> 00:14:35.119
  • the acceptance because it didn'tcome for free.
  • 00:14:35.153 --> 00:14:37.588
  • "So I must have to pay for it,"is what our thoughts are.
  • 00:14:37.622 --> 00:14:40.792
  • It didn't come for free, so Imust have to pay for it.
  • 00:14:40.825 --> 00:14:43.361
  • It didn't come for free, so Imust have to do something
  • 00:14:43.394 --> 00:14:45.863
  • to get it.
  • 00:14:45.897 --> 00:14:49.734
  • The devil is the ultimate sourceof rejection.
  • 00:14:49.767 --> 00:14:51.736
  • God rejected him out of heavenwhen he was Lucifer in Ezekiel
  • 00:14:51.769 --> 00:14:55.640
  • 28, verse 14 through 16.
  • 00:14:55.673 --> 00:14:58.242
  • God rejected him from heavenand he said, "You know what?
  • 00:14:58.276 --> 00:15:01.612
  • I might be miserable, but I'mnot gonna be alone.
  • 00:15:01.646 --> 00:15:03.915
  • I'm bringing Eve into this thingwith me.
  • 00:15:03.948 --> 00:15:05.850
  • I'm bringing Eve into thisrejection with me.
  • 00:15:05.883 --> 00:15:07.919
  • I'm bringing Adam into thisrejection with me.
  • 00:15:07.952 --> 00:15:10.121
  • I'm bringing Cain into thisrejection with with me, so that
  • 00:15:10.154 --> 00:15:13.591
  • Cain will kill Abel.
  • 00:15:13.624 --> 00:15:14.959
  • I'm going to bring allthe people that are born
  • 00:15:14.993 --> 00:15:17.128
  • after Adam and Eve.
  • 00:15:17.161 --> 00:15:18.496
  • I'm going to bring theminto the spirit of rejection
  • 00:15:18.529 --> 00:15:20.031
  • with me.
  • 00:15:20.064 --> 00:15:21.366
  • Since I've been rejected by God,I'm going to make sure they feel
  • 00:15:21.399 --> 00:15:22.800
  • rejected by God."
  • 00:15:22.834 --> 00:15:24.535
  • And that's been Satan's planfrom the beginning of
  • 00:15:24.569 --> 00:15:28.106
  • man's creation.
  • 00:15:28.139 --> 00:15:30.308
  • So how do we get to the rootof rejection and start
  • 00:15:30.341 --> 00:15:35.179
  • living free?
  • 00:15:35.213 --> 00:15:36.681
  • How do we get to the rootof being super sensitive all
  • 00:15:36.714 --> 00:15:40.118
  • the time, which is a fruitof rejection, being super
  • 00:15:40.151 --> 00:15:45.189
  • touchy, skeptical, rebellious,argumentative, stubborn,
  • 00:15:45.223 --> 00:15:49.293
  • fighting all the time,condemning ourselves, sad,
  • 00:15:49.327 --> 00:15:51.929
  • condemning others, alwaysseeking approval, depressed,
  • 00:15:51.963 --> 00:15:55.066
  • lonely, despairing?
  • 00:15:55.099 --> 00:15:57.068
  • I'm not tryin' to paint a badpicture here, I'm just tryin'
  • 00:15:57.101 --> 00:15:59.570
  • to paint a real one so that youget--so that we get
  • 00:15:59.604 --> 00:16:01.973
  • out of denial and we realize,"Yeah, I get angry a lot easily.
  • 00:16:02.006 --> 00:16:05.643
  • I get this a lot easily."
  • 00:16:05.676 --> 00:16:07.045
  • And instead of tryin' to liveup here dealing with this fruit
  • 00:16:07.078 --> 00:16:09.947
  • stuff, let's get to the rootof the thing and uproot it once
  • 00:16:09.981 --> 00:16:12.717
  • and for all.
  • 00:16:12.750 --> 00:16:14.052
  • You with me?
  • 00:16:14.085 --> 00:16:15.386
  • So how do we get to the rootand start living free?
  • 00:16:15.420 --> 00:16:16.754
  • Because roots feed us whateverthey are made of, and they carry
  • 00:16:16.788 --> 00:16:21.259
  • either a truth or a lie whichwill determine either the health
  • 00:16:21.292 --> 00:16:25.496
  • or the sickness of our soul.
  • 00:16:25.530 --> 00:16:27.398
  • So what do we need?
  • 00:16:27.432 --> 00:16:28.866
  • Since roots feed what they aremade of, we need to identify
  • 00:16:28.900 --> 00:16:32.703
  • with a new root.
  • 00:16:32.737 --> 00:16:34.238
  • We gotta stop identifyingwith the root of rejection
  • 00:16:34.272 --> 00:16:36.707
  • and start identifyingwith the root of love.
  • 00:16:36.741 --> 00:16:39.477
  • We need to understand the realroot in our life that God puts
  • 00:16:39.510 --> 00:16:42.513
  • there when we're born again islove.
  • 00:16:42.547 --> 00:16:45.316
  • And Ephesians 3:17b says, "Mayyou be rooted," Amplified Bible,
  • 00:16:45.349 --> 00:16:50.288
  • "May you be rooted deep in loveand founded securely on love.
  • 00:16:50.321 --> 00:16:55.993
  • May you be rooted deep in loveand founded securely on love."
  • 00:16:56.027 --> 00:17:01.799
  • Everybody say, "May you berooted deep in love and founded
  • 00:17:01.833 --> 00:17:07.538
  • securely on love."
  • 00:17:07.572 --> 00:17:10.508
  • We need to embrace the new root.
  • 00:17:10.541 --> 00:17:12.844
  • We need to identify with the newroot.
  • 00:17:12.877 --> 00:17:15.346
  • And we need to say, "I'm notborn of that spirit of rejection
  • 00:17:15.379 --> 00:17:18.783
  • anymore.
  • 00:17:18.816 --> 00:17:20.118
  • I'm born of the root of love.
  • 00:17:20.151 --> 00:17:21.486
  • I am loved by God.
  • 00:17:21.519 --> 00:17:23.054
  • I am accepted by God.
  • 00:17:23.087 --> 00:17:24.889
  • I am his beloved child,"like somebody spoke
  • 00:17:24.922 --> 00:17:27.458
  • out prophetically and said, "Youare my son and I approve of you.
  • 00:17:27.492 --> 00:17:31.295
  • You are my son and I am pleasedwith you."
  • 00:17:31.329 --> 00:17:33.397
  • That's what God says about us.
  • 00:17:33.431 --> 00:17:35.366
  • We are his beloved children.
  • 00:17:35.399 --> 00:17:37.235
  • We are the love of his life.
  • 00:17:37.268 --> 00:17:39.137
  • We are the love of his soul.
  • 00:17:39.170 --> 00:17:40.872
  • We are his favorite child.
  • 00:17:40.905 --> 00:17:42.740
  • We are--man, if you wantto know what God puts on his
  • 00:17:42.773 --> 00:17:45.810
  • Facebook page, it's you; whatGod puts on his Instagram,
  • 00:17:45.843 --> 00:17:49.180
  • it's you.
  • 00:17:49.213 --> 00:17:50.548
  • What God puts on Snapchat is,"Hey, everybody.
  • 00:17:50.581 --> 00:17:52.416
  • I just want you to know about mychild Jill over there.
  • 00:17:52.450 --> 00:17:54.952
  • I want you to know about mychild Billy over there.
  • 00:17:54.986 --> 00:17:56.787
  • I want you to know about mychild Methuselah over there.
  • 00:17:56.821 --> 00:17:58.789
  • I want you to know about mychild Taquita over there.
  • 00:17:58.823 --> 00:18:00.758
  • I want you to know I love mychildren."
  • 00:18:00.791 --> 00:18:09.800
  • We've got to meditateon the love of God.
  • 00:18:11.502 --> 00:18:13.271
  • We gotta know that we areso loved.
  • 00:18:13.304 --> 00:18:15.606
  • God so loved the world.
  • 00:18:15.640 --> 00:18:19.210
  • Number two, we've got to getthis.
  • 00:18:19.243 --> 00:18:21.412
  • You are chosen.
  • 00:18:21.445 --> 00:18:23.247
  • "You've been chosen by God,"Ephesians 1:4 says.
  • 00:18:23.281 --> 00:18:26.384
  • You have been chosen by God.
  • 00:18:26.417 --> 00:18:27.952
  • In fact, he says you were chosenby God before the world began,
  • 00:18:27.985 --> 00:18:31.422
  • before the foundationof the world.
  • 00:18:31.455 --> 00:18:33.424
  • You have been chosen in himbefore the foundation
  • 00:18:33.457 --> 00:18:38.429
  • of the world.
  • 00:18:38.462 --> 00:18:39.764
  • When the world was createdand man was created, man
  • 00:18:39.797 --> 00:18:42.266
  • received the spiritof rejection,
  • 00:18:42.300 --> 00:18:44.235
  • but before the rejection camein, man was already accepted
  • 00:18:44.268 --> 00:18:48.239
  • and chosen by God.
  • 00:18:48.272 --> 00:18:49.774
  • And so what we have to do is wehave to identify with our first
  • 00:18:49.807 --> 00:18:53.477
  • creation, not the recreationof Genesis, but the creation
  • 00:18:53.511 --> 00:18:58.916
  • before the foundationof the world.
  • 00:18:58.950 --> 00:19:01.118
  • I know that's, like, a crazythought, but we gotta stop
  • 00:19:01.152 --> 00:19:06.424
  • referencing our lifefrom the time we were born
  • 00:19:06.457 --> 00:19:09.894
  • and start referencing--'causewhat do you think of when you
  • 00:19:09.927 --> 00:19:12.396
  • look at your life and you lookat what made you who you are?
  • 00:19:12.430 --> 00:19:15.032
  • You look at everything that'shappened since you've been born.
  • 00:19:15.066 --> 00:19:17.735
  • And we've got to stopreferencing from that point
  • 00:19:17.768 --> 00:19:19.670
  • of view.
  • 00:19:19.704 --> 00:19:21.038
  • We've got to start referencingfrom before the foundation
  • 00:19:21.072 --> 00:19:22.773
  • of the world when he chose us,when he loved us
  • 00:19:22.807 --> 00:19:28.145
  • before the foundationof the world and he chose us
  • 00:19:28.179 --> 00:19:31.716
  • before the foundationof the world.
  • 00:19:31.749 --> 00:19:33.584
  • He loved you.
  • 00:19:33.618 --> 00:19:34.919
  • He chose you.
  • 00:19:34.952 --> 00:19:36.287
  • He knew youbefore the foundation
  • 00:19:36.320 --> 00:19:39.090
  • of the world and he destined youto walk with him
  • 00:19:39.123 --> 00:19:42.293
  • before the foundationof the world.
  • 00:19:42.326 --> 00:19:44.295
  • He predestined you to be adoptedas his child
  • 00:19:44.328 --> 00:19:47.331
  • before the foundationof the world.
  • 00:19:47.365 --> 00:19:49.000
  • That's why the Lamb of God wasslain before the foundation
  • 00:19:49.033 --> 00:19:51.636
  • of the world, so that you couldhave your point of reference not
  • 00:19:51.669 --> 00:19:55.006
  • from what's happened to yousince you were born, which is
  • 00:19:55.039 --> 00:19:58.175
  • this era, this epoch of time,but rather that you would make
  • 00:19:58.209 --> 00:20:02.179
  • your point of referencefrom life from before you were
  • 00:20:02.213 --> 00:20:04.448
  • born when God knew you, Godchose you, God loved you, God
  • 00:20:04.482 --> 00:20:07.184
  • accepted you, God embraced you,God called you,
  • 00:20:07.218 --> 00:20:09.587
  • God ordained you.
  • 00:20:09.620 --> 00:20:10.921
  • God made you something specialbefore you were even born.
  • 00:20:10.955 --> 00:20:12.857
  • That's gotta be our new pointof reference.
  • 00:20:12.890 --> 00:20:14.992
  • And where do we--look, you cango to ancestry.org
  • 00:20:15.026 --> 00:20:21.265
  • or ancestery.net or whateverthose places are to find
  • 00:20:21.299 --> 00:20:24.168
  • out about your--you know, whereyou came from, or better, go
  • 00:20:24.201 --> 00:20:28.673
  • to the Bible and find out thatyou came from Abraham,
  • 00:20:28.706 --> 00:20:32.009
  • from Isaac, from Jacob.
  • 00:20:32.043 --> 00:20:33.377
  • You came from the Lord himself.
  • 00:20:33.411 --> 00:20:35.279
  • You came from the heart of God.
  • 00:20:35.313 --> 00:20:38.616
  • Before you even born, God lovedyou, God knew you, and God
  • 00:20:38.649 --> 00:20:41.552
  • wanted you.
  • 00:20:41.585 --> 00:20:44.789
  • This is how we uproot the spiritof rejection.
  • 00:20:44.822 --> 00:20:48.426
  • We need to be--let me closewith two more thoughts.
  • 00:20:48.459 --> 00:20:50.094
  • We must be deliveredfrom people.
  • 00:20:50.127 --> 00:20:52.596
  • Acts 26, verse 17 says, God saysto Paul, "I will deliver you
  • 00:20:52.630 --> 00:20:57.601
  • from the people.
  • 00:20:57.635 --> 00:20:59.136
  • I will deliver youfrom the Jewish people
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:01.038
  • and from the Gentiles, and thenI will send you to them."
  • 00:21:01.072 --> 00:21:04.842
  • It's almost contradictory.
  • 00:21:04.875 --> 00:21:06.677
  • "I'm going to deliver you to--I'm gonna deliver you from them
  • 00:21:06.711 --> 00:21:08.913
  • and deliver you to them."
  • 00:21:08.946 --> 00:21:10.481
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:21:10.514 --> 00:21:11.849
  • God must deliver us.
  • 00:21:11.882 --> 00:21:13.284
  • We must be--we must--we mustfree ourselves from people
  • 00:21:13.317 --> 00:21:20.157
  • so that we can be free to bea blessing to people.
  • 00:21:20.191 --> 00:21:23.761
  • We must free ourselves.
  • 00:21:23.794 --> 00:21:28.199
  • We must free ourselvesfrom needing their approval
  • 00:21:28.232 --> 00:21:31.369
  • and then we will be free to givethem love.
  • 00:21:31.402 --> 00:21:33.604
  • We must free ourselvesfrom needing their love and then
  • 00:21:33.637 --> 00:21:35.973
  • we'll be free to give them love.
  • 00:21:36.006 --> 00:21:37.341
  • We must be--we must freeourselves from needing their
  • 00:21:37.375 --> 00:21:39.577
  • affection, and needing themto respond or react to our
  • 00:21:39.610 --> 00:21:43.114
  • Facebook page, or our hair,or our dress, or our outfit,
  • 00:21:43.147 --> 00:21:46.684
  • or our job performance, or ourmuscles, or our or lack of them,
  • 00:21:46.717 --> 00:21:50.721
  • or the way we look, or the waywe walk, or the way we talk,
  • 00:21:50.755 --> 00:21:53.057
  • or the color of our skin,or the way we jive, or the way
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:55.226
  • we do our thing.
  • 00:21:55.259 --> 00:21:56.560
  • You know what I'm saying, bro?
  • 00:21:56.594 --> 00:21:57.928
  • We have to realize thatuntil we're delivered
  • 00:21:57.962 --> 00:22:01.832
  • from needing them, we will neverbe of any good to them.
  • 00:22:01.866 --> 00:22:06.904
  • And number four--there's fourthings here and number four is
  • 00:22:06.937 --> 00:22:13.744
  • you have to deal with the--youhave to renew the spirit of--be
  • 00:22:13.778 --> 00:22:17.148
  • renewed in the spirit of yourmind.
  • 00:22:17.181 --> 00:22:18.482
  • Ephesians 4:23 says, "Be renewedin the spirit of your mind."
  • 00:22:18.516 --> 00:22:21.552
  • How do you do that?
  • 00:22:21.585 --> 00:22:22.887
  • That means there's a warbetween--love is tryin' to tell
  • 00:22:22.920 --> 00:22:27.258
  • you--love is tryin' to speakto you, God's love,
  • 00:22:27.291 --> 00:22:29.794
  • and rejection from the enemy istryin' to speak to you, and you
  • 00:22:29.827 --> 00:22:32.797
  • have to choose which one you'regoing to come into
  • 00:22:32.830 --> 00:22:35.132
  • agreement with.
  • 00:22:35.166 --> 00:22:36.467
  • Choose which root you're goingto agree with.
  • 00:22:36.500 --> 00:22:40.337
  • I choose to agree with the rootof love.
  • 00:22:40.371 --> 00:22:44.041
  • Gregory Dickow: Well, I surehope you're enjoying today's
  • 00:22:48.979 --> 00:22:50.281
  • program.
  • 00:22:50.314 --> 00:22:51.649
  • Rejection and risingabove rejection is all about our
  • 00:22:51.682 --> 00:22:54.919
  • identity and knowing who we are,knowing that you're loved,
  • 00:22:54.952 --> 00:22:57.755
  • knowing that you're a sonor daughter of God, knowing that
  • 00:22:57.788 --> 00:23:00.691
  • he will never reject you.
  • 00:23:00.724 --> 00:23:02.359
  • He'll never leave you or forsakeyou.
  • 00:23:02.393 --> 00:23:04.195
  • You see, the key to overcomingrejection is to solve
  • 00:23:04.228 --> 00:23:06.664
  • the identity problem.
  • 00:23:06.697 --> 00:23:08.065
  • The way we are to combat thesethings is to take them captive
  • 00:23:08.098 --> 00:23:11.869
  • and put them into obedienceto Christ.
  • 00:23:11.902 --> 00:23:14.238
  • That is, when something comesour way that's contrary to what
  • 00:23:14.271 --> 00:23:17.208
  • God says about us that we rejectit and replace it with the truth
  • 00:23:17.241 --> 00:23:21.378
  • that you're loved, you'reaccepted, you're chosen,
  • 00:23:21.412 --> 00:23:23.948
  • and you're wanted by God.
  • 00:23:23.981 --> 00:23:26.450
  • Yet we all, when we're born,we're born with this root
  • 00:23:26.484 --> 00:23:29.653
  • of rejection in our soul.
  • 00:23:29.687 --> 00:23:30.988
  • We've been the victimsor the villains of someone
  • 00:23:31.021 --> 00:23:33.357
  • at one time or another in ourlife and rejection damages each
  • 00:23:33.390 --> 00:23:37.495
  • of us uniquely and differently.
  • 00:23:37.528 --> 00:23:39.096
  • But the solution is the same.
  • 00:23:39.129 --> 00:23:41.365
  • It's to discover the radicalacceptance of God and to reject
  • 00:23:41.398 --> 00:23:45.269
  • any other view of how God feelsabout you or how anybody else
  • 00:23:45.302 --> 00:23:49.373
  • feels about you for that matter.
  • 00:23:49.406 --> 00:23:50.908
  • This is something that needsto wash over your mind and heart
  • 00:23:50.941 --> 00:23:54.144
  • continually to free youfrom the bondage of that
  • 00:23:54.178 --> 00:23:57.047
  • rejection.
  • 00:23:57.081 --> 00:23:58.415
