02:25 out into this world ruling and reigning
02:27 over sin sickness and all forms of
02:30 destruction just as King Jesus did well
02:34 he walked here on this earth amen
02:38 Roman numeral one is the power of the
02:42 cross for your spirit soul and body the
02:46 title of this series is living in the
02:49 power of the gospel the gospel of Jesus
02:52 Christ is the salvation for your entire
02:55 being your spirit your soul and your
02:59 body as I presented last week in session
03:02 4 of the psalm 103 series Isaiah 53 is
03:07 the main prophetic word of what Jesus
03:09 would one day accomplish for mankind on
03:13 the cross Jesus is finished work on the
03:17 cross is to be the anchor of your soul
03:20 and your heart God desires that each one
03:25 of us be rooted and grounded in these
03:28 foundational truths of his great love
03:32 for you so that your entire being can be
03:35 transformed into his likeness and image
03:39 isaiah 53:5 says this but he was wounded
03:44 for our transgression
03:47 that's our sin he was bruised for our
03:50 iniquities that is the forgiveness of
03:53 your spirit making your spirit man 100%
03:58 righteous and holy as God is himself
04:02 then it says that the chastisement for
04:05 our peace was upon him that is a renewal
04:09 of your spirit of your soul your mind
04:12 your will your emotions and then lastly
04:16 in isaiah 53:5 it says and by His
04:19 stripes we are healed and that is the
04:22 healing for your body
04:24 a similar prophetic power
04:27 see - or message concerning the
04:29 salvation for your entire being was
04:32 declared by King David in Psalm 103 and
04:37 that was done approximately 1,000 years
04:41 before Jesus Christ went to the cross
04:45 died was crucified was buried and then
04:50 rose and seated at the right hand one
04:55 thousand years he had said that before
04:57 it even happened the Holy Spirit now is
05:00 inviting you to come into agreement with
05:03 these realities in your heart and your
05:05 soul so that you can live in the
05:08 strength and the power of God's grace
05:11 that he has provided for you through
05:14 these very words he has spoken and
05:16 through what he has done Psalm 103
05:20 verses 2 through 3 bless the Lord O my
05:24 soul and all that is within me bless His
05:27 Holy Name bless the Lord O my soul and
05:31 forget not all his benefits who forgives
05:34 all your iniquities
05:37 that's the healing of your spirit who
05:40 heals all your diseases
05:43 that's the healing or of your body and
05:47 then finally what we're going to study
05:49 tonight is the healing of the soul or
05:51 your Redemption or renewal of your soul
05:54 who crowns your life with
05:56 loving-kindness and tender mercies in
06:00 the last two sessions of Psalm 103
06:02 series we have studied two of these
06:07 parts of our redemption or salvation in
06:10 Jesus Christ the forgiveness of all of
06:12 our sins that's for a spirit man and
06:15 then last week we studied that he is the
06:19 one who goes ahead and heals all of our
06:23 diseases and that's the redemption or
06:25 the healing of our body so this week
06:27 we're going to take a look at the
06:30 renewal or redemption of our soul
06:35 the soul made up of the mind will and
06:39 emotions plays a crucial role for being
06:43 able to live in the power of the gospel
06:46 in an ongoing way in our everyday lives
06:50 Roman numeral two King David set an
06:53 example for us taking command over his
06:57 soul what to me was amazing is to
07:01 consider that David under the old
07:04 cabinet had experienced God's grace all
07:08 these benefits through his relationship
07:11 with the Lord and the prophetic insight
07:14 the wisdom and revelation that was given
07:17 to him by God our Father because he knew
07:21 God and he did not want to miss out on
07:24 all that God had for him the grace that
07:26 was available to him at that time during
07:29 his life here on this earth he commanded
07:33 his soul to bless the Lord from all the
07:38 other Psalms he wrote anywhere from 80
07:42 to 100 of the Psalms are written by him
07:46 we see this principle worked out in
07:49 David's life repeatedly where he did not
07:53 allow his soul to gain ascendancy but
07:57 rather David chose to look upward to God
08:00 in the midst of his circumstances and
08:03 the turmoil of his soul to bless God
08:07 with his soul and all that was within
08:11 him as he did this his soul became
08:14 transformed more and more into the
08:17 likeness and into the image of the very
08:20 one that's God whom he was beholding
08:25 although Jesus is our supreme standard
08:28 or a good shepherd he gave us other
08:30 people like David by which we are able
08:33 to understand how to live by faith in
08:37 the fear of the Lord like Psalm 103
08:39 talks about in verses 11 13 and 17 and
08:43 in the keeping of his covenant and His
08:46 commandments as revealed
08:48 verse 18 of Psalm 103 in the midst of an
08:52 imperfect world where our souls have
08:56 have to have constant interaction and
09:00 therefore can be influenced by the world
09:04 your mind your will and emotions has to
09:07 interact with this world that's
09:09 imperfect and God saying I don't want
09:12 you to be influenced by the world but
09:14 rather I want this very spirit my holy
09:18 spirit living in your spirit to
09:20 influence your soul your mind your will
09:24 and your emotions
09:27 David's entire life of faith and
09:31 obedience is a pitcher or a standard for
09:34 us to fall as he took command over his
09:38 own soul through God's grace given to
09:40 him even after his sin he sinned against
09:45 God and even after his failures to
09:48 follow God as he had desired acts 13:22
09:53 says this he raised up for them David
09:57 his King to whom also he gave testimony
10:00 and said I have found David the son of
10:04 Jesse a man after my own heart who will
10:10 do all my will when David was only in
10:15 his teens God saw David's heart in
10:19 little bitsy seed form and spoke through
10:23 Samuel that David was a man after his
10:27 own heart First Samuel 1314 God knew the
10:33 best journey for the development of
10:35 David's heart just like he does for you
10:39 and I notice that a person after God's
10:42 heart will actually endeavour to do all
10:46 of God's will now we know David stumbled
10:50 badly but he never quit in his
10:53 passionate pursuit of God unlike Sol
10:56 when David sinned he recognized his sin
11:00 he didn't hide
11:02 from his sin but rather he chose to
11:05 repent turning towards God as revealed
11:09 in Psalm 103 a the God whom he had come
11:13 to know the one who is merciful and
11:16 compassionate slow to anger and
11:19 abounding in mercy abounding in hasit
11:23 abounding in loving kindness God is
11:28 raising up leaders worldwide who like
11:31 David are not only after God's heart but
11:36 who will feed people on the
11:37 understanding of God his beauty his
11:41 loving-kindness and tender mercies as
11:44 seen throughout Psalm 103 and as
11:48 revealed by God's acts especially God's
11:51 actions towards us by allowing his son
11:54 Jesus Christ to die
11:55 our death on the cross as our substitute
11:59 taking our punishment for us David
12:04 understood God's heart he understood
12:07 God's emotional makeup towards us
12:11 jeremiah 3:15 says this and I will give
12:15 you Shepherds according to my heart who
12:18 will feed you with knowledge and
12:21 understanding you are called not only to
12:25 encourage your own soul in recalling who
12:31 God is and what he has given to you his
12:34 benefits but you're called to encourage
12:37 others to feed them with knowledge and
12:41 understanding of who God is although
12:45 David is the only man got ever called a
12:48 shepherd after his heart see yourself in
12:52 this promise for you and I as Christians
12:56 are called to be a leader in the sense
12:58 that we are called to disciple and
13:01 Shepherd those around us first Samuel 13
13:05 14 the Lord has sought for himself a man
13:10 after his own heart God is
13:15 after you the one who is after his heart
13:20 you wouldn't be here tonight unless you
13:23 were after God's heart let us declare
13:26 this out loud together by God's grace
13:30 I'll be a shepherd after God's own heart
13:33 I will bless the Lord in his holy name
13:37 and all that is within me not forgetting
13:41 any of the benefits given to me through
13:44 Jesus substitutionary work of the cross
13:48 and I will encourage others to join me
13:51 in blessing His Holy Name our Heavenly
13:54 Father who abounds in loving-kindness
13:58 and tender mercies you might want to
14:00 review that this week and declare that
14:03 over yourself reminding that God has
14:07 created you to be a person after his own
14:09 heart and to encourage and strengthen
14:12 and feed others on who he is Roman
14:16 numeral three God's excerpt ations in
14:18 Psalm 103 spoken by David the words
14:23 David spoke to his own soul three times
14:26 in Psalm 103 are God's excerpt ations
14:30 for you and i you are called to speak
14:33 over your own soul your mind your will
14:36 and emotions to bless the Lord and not
14:39 forget any of his benefits now this is
14:46 not vain repetition bless the Lord O my
14:49 soul this is the Holy Spirit speaking to
14:55 King David to encourage his own heart to
14:58 strengthen himself in the Lord and who
15:02 God is David did not want to keep
15:05 anything anything from God from blessing
15:11 his name therefore he commanded his own
15:15 soul to bless the Lord but then he says
15:17 Oh what is inside of you that has
15:23 difficulty in blessing the Lord at all
15:26 times in the difficult
15:29 times as well as the good times is it
15:34 your past memories your failures your
15:37 shortcomings and mistakes
15:40 is it the wrongs that have been done
15:42 against you are you allowing the past to
15:47 define who you are are you allowing your
15:51 unrenewed thoughts and feelings that are
15:54 not in agreement with God's Word to rule
15:57 over your life if so choose to declare
16:02 Psalm 103 out loud this week over
16:05 yourself renewing your mind about God's
16:09 loving-kindness and his tender mercies
16:12 that are new for you every morning
16:16 Jeremiah writes in a very difficult time
16:20 the following lamentations 3:23 23 my
16:26 soul still remembers and thinks within
16:29 me when your soul remembers your mind
16:33 your will and your emotions remember
16:35 those past events or those difficult
16:39 circumstances what will happen just like
16:42 Jeremiah said here
16:45 your heart will just sink within you but
16:50 Jeremiah verse 21 says this this I
16:54 recall to mine therefore I have hope
16:58 what did he call to his mind he says
17:03 through the Lord's mercies we are not
17:06 consumed because his Compassion's fail
17:10 not they are new every morning great is
17:15 your faithfulness and then in verse 24
17:19 he says therefore I hope in him notice
17:27 that when he remembered his
17:29 circumstances his soul sunk within him
17:31 but when he recalled God's
17:34 loving-kindness his hesitant tender
17:37 mercies his hope was restored
17:41 don't allow your past or anything else
17:45 to separate you from God's love Romans 8
17:48 37 through 39 make the quality decision
17:53 to bless the Lord at all times and I
17:57 really mean that I have decided to make
18:00 that quality decision in my own life
18:02 that I would be a person that would
18:05 bless the Lord at all times - thankfully
18:08 come in agreement with him I endeavor to
18:12 do that I endeavor to follow him to do
18:16 God's will
18:17 but am i perfect in it my pursuit no
18:21 just like David he stumbled but when I
18:24 stumble then I get back up and then I
18:27 continue my pursuit I ask forgiveness I
18:31 repent and I turn my heart and my face
18:34 towards God the one who is merciful and
18:36 gracious slow to anger towards me and
18:39 filled with love psalm 34:1 says this I
18:48 will bless the Lord at all times his
18:50 praise shall continually be in my mouth
18:55 whatever you are facing one of the
18:58 wisest decisions you can ever make in
19:02 life is to follow David's example
19:05 blessing the Lord with your soul and all
19:08 that is within you at all times the Holy
19:14 Spirit inspired King David's speech
19:16 throughout his life
19:17 and in the writing of the Psalms which
19:22 are prophetic in nature in King David's
19:25 last words for his life he directly
19:27 stated that the Spirit of God had
19:30 inspired his words second samuel 23:2
19:34 King David said this the Spirit of the
19:38 Lord spoke by me and His Word was on my
19:44 time did you know that the Spirit of the
19:47 Lord can be on your tongue his words in
19:51 your mouth
19:54 as I read Psalm 103 verses 19 through 20
19:59 to the very end verses I saw 103 and
20:03 then I'm going to read to you
20:05 revelations 5 11 through 13 I want you
20:09 to look at the similarities between
20:11 David's call upon all of God's creation
20:15 to bless the Lord and what John
20:18 witnessed himself as he peered into the
20:21 heavenly realm allow yourself as I read
20:24 this to actually picture what is
20:27 happening around God's throne right now
20:30 and then realize that you have been
20:33 called to set your mind on this because
20:37 you're called to set your mind on the
20:39 things above so look at the similarities
20:42 between what David said in Psalm 103 and
20:46 what Jim John said in revelations 5 the
20:50 Lord has established his throne in
20:54 heaven and his kingdom rules over all
21:00 bless the Lord you his angels who excel
21:03 in strength who do his word heeding the
21:06 voice of his word bless the Lord you his
21:11 angels bless the Lord all you his hosts
21:17 you ministers of his who do his pleasure
21:19 bless the Lord all his works in all
21:23 places of his Dominion bless the Lord O
21:27 my soul now John revelations 5 11
21:32 through 13 I'm not going to read the
21:34 whole thing but you can read it in your
21:37 own time he saw many angels around the
21:40 throne the living creatures and the
21:43 elders and every creature which is in
21:46 heaven and on earth and under the earth
21:48 and as such as are in the sea and and
21:51 all that are in them I heard saying
21:55 blessing and honor and glory and power
21:59 be to him who sits on the throne and to
22:03 the lamb for ever and ever
22:07 as you look at those two passages
22:10 perhaps you see that King David was
22:13 perhaps like John taken into the
22:17 heavenly realm to actually see what was
22:20 occurring there or perhaps King David
22:24 was given such great clarity from God of
22:28 the heavenly realm such a prophetic word
22:32 that he wrote that we don't know how
22:36 David received such knowledge to write
22:39 the ending of Psalm 103 or its entirety
22:43 but we can see the accuracy not only
22:46 what he wrote in these verses through
22:49 throughout Psalm 103 the angels the
22:53 heavenly hosts and all of God's works
22:54 are blessing the Lord honoring him and
22:57 attributing to him glory and honor and
23:01 the power as you begin studying praying
23:04 and singing Psalm 103 and the other
23:08 Psalms written by David here these words
23:12 coming from the heart of God himself not
23:17 just from David's heart both of the
23:20 Apostles Peter and Paul recognized David
23:23 as a prophet one who spoke God's Word of
23:26 the things that would come in acts 2:29
23:32 through 30 Peter declared man and
23:35 brethren let me speak freely to you of
23:38 the patriarch David then he says about
23:42 David being a prophet and knowing and
23:46 then he goes on and then he says and
23:49 David for seeing this spoke concerning
23:52 the resurrection of Christ so here we
23:58 have Peter talking to lots of people
24:01 about David being known as a prophet
24:06 then in the great chapter on the Hall of
24:11 faith the great you know where they list
24:14 the heroes of faith in Hebrews 11 we see
24:17 Paul talking about Dave
24:20 in the grouping of the profits for the
24:23 time would feel me feel me to tell also
24:27 of David and Samuel and the profits so
24:29 David was right there in that group when
24:34 you study his Psalms you understand he
24:39 really knew the heart of God he knew
24:41 things about what Christ would one day
24:44 do for us in such great accuracy that it
24:48 just I mean just amazes me and it's like
24:52 God wants that for each one of you in a
24:55 lie to have that read such a close
24:57 relationship that we understand what God
24:59 will be doing in the earth especially in
25:03 the second coming of His Son Jesus
25:04 Christ Roman numeral for the
25:08 significance of our souls blessing the
25:10 Lord bless in Psalm 103 comes from the
25:15 Hebrew word Barak when you think a bless
25:19 the Lord consider that this Hebrew word
25:23 has been translated as blast praise and
25:26 thank and if you look at Psalm 104 there
25:31 although they gave different there were
25:35 different Hebrew words that expressed
25:37 praised and thanked they're all kind of
25:41 grouped together in the same passage
25:43 about what we're to do as we approach
25:47 God his courts psalm 104 entering enter
25:52 into his gates with thanksgiving in his
25:54 courts with praise be thankful to him
25:59 and bless his name when you bless the
26:03 Lord you're essentially speaking or
26:05 singing about God's beauty his
26:09 loving-kindness his mercy his goodness
26:13 his greatness his glory his power David
26:17 was so fascinated with God's beauty that
26:21 he desired for it to be the very primary
26:24 focus of his life for all the days of
26:29 his life in Psalm 27 verse 4 David
26:34 it's this one thing I have desired of
26:37 the Lord that will I seek that I may
26:39 dwell in the house of the Lord all the
26:41 days of my life to behold the beauty of
26:44 the Lord and to enquire in his temple
26:48 David had made a decision to behold
26:51 God's beauty and to inquire in his
26:55 temple all the days of his life
26:59 now David wrote this Psalm 27 when he
27:02 was about in his 40s but we know that he
27:05 had made that decision to focus on the
27:09 Lord's Beauty way back in his teens when
27:12 the Lord chose him and then Psalm 103 is
27:17 believed to be written towards the
27:19 endcard
27:20 a babe it's live he died around 70 years
27:24 of age and so in Psalm 103 we see that
27:28 this focus on looking and gazing at the
27:32 Lord's Beauty hadn't changed for David
27:35 but we see this this thing the Holy
27:39 Spirit is prompting him like the Holy
27:41 Spirit prompts us where he says bless
27:45 the Lord and all that is in within me
27:49 he's prompting King David to tell his
27:52 own soul his own mind his own will and
27:56 his own emotions to thankfully come in
28:00 agreement with who God is and what God
28:03 has done
28:06 David zeal for the Lord his pursuit of
28:10 the Lord is so passionate that he is
28:13 going like yes I'm gonna do this and I
28:17 am could block out these other things
28:20 about my past yes I sin but God forgave
28:24 me and I'm gonna now move forward in the
28:27 calling that God has upon my life I'm
28:31 not gonna let my failures my mistakes or
28:34 the things that other people did to me
28:36 like Saul pursuing him for so many years
28:38 where he had to hide in the case I'm not
28:41 gonna let that affect my future
28:47 David understood what Paul wrote about
28:51 years later in Ephesians about the
28:53 spiritual blessings the benefits given
28:57 to us through Jesus Christ Ephesians 1:3
29:00 says this blessed be God and father of
29:04 our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us
29:07 with every spiritual blessing in the
29:09 heavenly places in Christ Psalm 103 1
29:14 through 2 we've repeated that throughout
29:15 the evening but we need to get it deep
29:18 down within us so I'll say it again
29:20 bless the Lord O my soul and all that it
29:22 was that is within me bless His Holy
29:25 Name and what forget not all his
29:29 benefits
29:30 those are all the spiritual blessings
29:32 that Paul is mentioning in Ephesians
29:35 David understood God's heart and didn't
29:38 want anything to interrupt his focus on
29:42 the Lord he didn't want to respond to
29:44 God half-heartedly because he knew that
29:47 is not how God responded to him no
29:50 matter what season David found himself
29:53 in throughout David's life you always
29:56 see these reflections on his life about
29:59 him responding wholeheartedly well
30:02 others might have been jeering or
30:04 despising his wholeheartedness don't let
30:07 that draw a Buick when others say you
30:10 don't have to go after God that hard you
30:13 don't have to do what you're doing and
30:15 praying and reading God's Word and
30:17 pursuing him like you are you don't have
30:19 to be here tonight
30:21 now a good example of David's pursuit
30:25 for the Lord which we're all familiar
30:27 with is in 2nd Samuel 6:14 it says then
30:31 David danced before the Lord now listen
30:34 to this with all his mind doesn't that
30:38 sound like with all that is within me
30:41 praise the Lord
30:43 now when you think that all that is
30:45 within you do you think of dancing
30:48 verse 16 David's was found leaping and
30:52 whirling before the Lord why he was
30:58 packed
30:59 about the one he loved he didn't care
31:03 that his wife was looking now on
31:05 despising what he was doing his very
31:08 wife one that was to be closest to him
31:12 so in your passionate pursuit if you're
31:15 here in church and you found whirling
31:18 around blessing the Lord allow your
31:23 heart to be consumed by God and allow
31:26 God's heart to consume you God's
31:31 admonition to you in Psalm 103 is to
31:34 bless him thankfully come in agreement
31:36 with his name with all that is within
31:41 you God's name is revealed in his word
31:47 revelation 19:13 the name that God wants
31:52 on the forefront of all of your minds is
31:57 this in verse 8 of Psalm 103 this is his
32:02 name that he revealed to Moses this is
32:05 God's self description of himself when
32:10 Moses says like who are you God and God
32:13 says this is who I am
32:14 I'm merciful and gracious slow to anger
32:18 and abounding in mercy the by question
32:23 is what happens when you bless the Lord
32:27 this is my response that I got when I
32:30 was talking to the Lord this week he
32:32 says you become blessed number one your
32:38 mouth your life becomes satisfied with
32:40 good things and you experience renewal
32:43 in your spirit your soul and your body
32:47 Psalm 103 5 says who satisfies your life
32:52 with good things so that your youth is
32:55 renewed like the Eagles and that's what
32:58 we're going to be talking about next
32:59 week that's the verse we're going to
33:00 primarily be focusing on number 2 your
33:05 eyes are taken off the temporal things
33:07 of this life the problems which often
33:09 cause a person to be self-centered
33:12 placed upon God the one who loves you
33:16 the one who loves you with an
33:18 everlasting love it allows you to see
33:22 things from God's perspective and
33:25 allowing you then to pray from heaven to
33:30 earth rather from then inside of your
33:34 problems to heaven God inhabits your
33:38 praises so you not only become like the
33:41 one you are beholding being transformed
33:44 into his likeness and into His image but
33:48 you have the pleasure of experiencing
33:51 God as he inhabits your praise as you
33:55 put the high praises of God in your
33:57 mouth and the word of God in your hand
34:00 the promise is seen in Psalm 149 7
34:05 through 9 occur Psalm 103 puts it like
34:09 this is kind of like a summary of Psalm
34:12 149 of what happens when you put the
34:15 blessing the praise of the Lord in your
34:18 mouth it says in verse 6 of Psalm 103
34:21 the Lord executes righteousness and
34:24 justice for all who are oppressed what
34:30 does that mean that God is gonna fight
34:33 your battles he's going to take on your
34:35 problems and your concerns some examples
34:39 of this of people praising the Lord is
34:42 like Paul and Silas when they were
34:45 delivered from prison as they praise the
34:47 Lord or the Israelites when they were
34:50 delivered from three powerful armies as
34:53 Jehoshaphat commanded the worshippers to
34:56 get on the front lines and worship the
34:58 Lord and as people praise the Lord the
35:04 walls of Jericho fell down so if there's
35:07 walls in your life that are preventing
35:09 you from praising Lord start praising
35:12 him and the walls will come tumbling
35:15 down Roman numeral five who redeems your
35:18 life from destruction who redeems your
35:21 life from destruction is from verse four
35:23 it says right after that
35:26 God not only redeems your life from
35:28 destruction
35:29 and it actually some translations will
35:31 say pit I put them together from the pit
35:34 of destruction but he crowns you with
35:37 his loving-kindness and tender mercies
35:42 God is the one who is your kinsman
35:47 redeemer the closest one that has the
35:50 power and the ability to redeem you from
35:52 any destruction that would ever come
35:55 against your life the one who has
35:57 delivered you through your faith in
35:59 Jesus Christ from eternal destruction
36:02 from the sin which brought eternal death
36:05 into the world and from the curse of the
36:07 law with which executed punishment due
36:11 to the entire to the entire human race
36:13 because of Adam's sin you can see that
36:17 in Colossians 1:13 and then I like how
36:20 Psalm 40 verse 2 kind of says the same
36:22 thing as this verse for he has brought
36:28 me out of a horrible pit out of the miry
36:32 clay miry clay you kind of think about a
36:35 place where you're stuck in life how
36:37 many been in horrible pits all of us
36:41 have and the Lord says I will deliver
36:45 you I will redeem you God God's
36:50 Redemption from all forms of destruction
36:53 whether it is from your own sin or sin
36:55 in this world is a past present and
36:58 future reality we see this in Colossians
37:01 2 1 9 to 10 yes we had the sentence of
37:06 death in ourselves that we should not
37:08 trust in ourselves but in God who raises
37:11 a dad who delivered us past tense from
37:16 such great a death and does deliver us
37:19 present tense in whom we trust that he
37:23 will still deliver us future tense
37:27 there are many ways in which destruction
37:30 comes to your life I don't have to go
37:31 into that you guys see it you're
37:34 familiar with it you hear the news it's
37:37 all around you
37:38 one of the things that I learned to pray
37:41 was Psalm 91 we spent in 2017 probably
37:47 three months on Psalm 91 learning about
37:51 how God delivers us from every form of
37:54 destruction it's a very powerful Psalm
37:57 I'll never forget because of my son was
37:59 in some of the most dangerous places of
38:01 the world on an assignment he was
38:05 informed of that that's when I started
38:09 praying Psalm 91 that's even before I
38:11 taught it I got books on it started just
38:14 declaring it just like we declared Psalm
38:17 103 before we started just saying it as
38:19 it was two times he could have lost his
38:26 life the second time when he called me
38:30 right after it happened he said mom I do
38:33 not know how I got out of it he had a
38:38 machete to his neck and three guys
38:40 surrounding him and God delivered him
38:47 sickness and disease is also in the
38:50 Bible listed under one of the forms of
38:53 destruction that you can come against I
38:56 thought that was very interesting in
38:59 Psalm 107 verse 20 it says this he sent
39:02 His Word and healed them and delivered
39:04 them from their destruction now Jesus
39:09 when he was confronted by the fear
39:11 seized about a man who he was healing on
39:14 the Sabbath who had a withered hand the
39:18 Lord says to the Pharisees now if your
39:22 sheep or your animal was in the pit the
39:25 pit of destruction wouldn't you deliver
39:27 them so he is weak waiting that with her
39:30 hand with being in a pit of destruction
39:32 and what did God do he went ahead and
39:35 strengthened said to the man stretch out
39:38 your hand and it was immediately healed
39:41 he was delivered from a pit of
39:44 destruction rule Roman numeral six the
39:48 role of your redeemed soul to prevent
39:50 yourself and others from partnering with
39:52 the destroyer in all forms of
39:55 destruction internally and externally it
39:58 is vital for you to understand how your
40:00 spirit soul and body are to function or
40:03 to interact as a born-again believer for
40:06 me this is a game changer Hosea 4:6 says
40:09 this my people are destroyed for lack of
40:12 knowledge until I learned what I'm about
40:15 to tell you about the spirit soul and
40:17 body I was being destroyed in a one
40:19 particular area of my life in one season
40:21 of my life and something that was very
40:23 very difficult I felt very very hopeless
40:27 I felt like I was gonna die I was living
40:30 like one who absolutely had no hope but
40:35 then when I realize that there were
40:37 three parts of my being spirit soul and
40:40 body and that Jesus Christ was living in
40:44 my spirit I had the power of the Holy
40:46 Spirit in my body that I did not have to
40:49 come and agreement with what my soul my
40:51 mind was telling me my emotions were
40:54 telling me about what was happening or
40:56 what my body the symptoms in my body
40:58 were telling me but rather
41:00 I could allow the Holy Spirit in the
41:04 Word of God to be spoken out of my mouth
41:07 and execute his justice which is the
41:12 blood of Jesus Christ into my situation
41:16 to deliver me from the pit of
41:18 destruction that I was in you are made
41:22 up of three distinct parts spirit soul
41:24 and body as a Christian God desires that
41:27 your whole being come under the
41:29 influence and Dominion of His Holy
41:31 Spirit His Holy Name
41:33 so that you can live in the fullness of
41:36 all he's provided 1st Thessalonians 5:23
41:40 says this now may the God of peace
41:42 himself sanctify you completely and may
41:47 your whole spirit soul and body
41:51 preserved be preserved at the coming of
41:54 our Lord Jesus Christ Adam and Eve's
41:58 ability to walk by the spirit was lost
42:01 before Adam sinned and I want to show
42:04 you this so I'm gonna go over here for a
42:08 moment out of sight okay so this vase
42:15 here doesn't represent the fullness of
42:19 somebody's spirit but before Adam sinned
42:21 he actually possessed the supernatural
42:26 life of God himself which I put as a
42:30 candle Jesus is the light of the world
42:33 God is the one that brings light in our
42:35 life his spirit governed or had dominion
42:40 over what you see on the black cloth
42:42 over there over his soul and his body
42:49 this is representing Adam and Eve spirit
42:52 his spirit had ascendancy over his soul
42:57 his mind his will his emotions and over
43:01 his body his spirit was dominant in his
43:07 decision-making his thought processes
43:10 and his emotions when Adam sinned
43:13 though it was the likes of light went
43:18 out so I have this blackface to
43:20 represent this when Adam sinned his
43:23 spirit became dark and devoid of the
43:27 supernatural life of God his spirit man
43:30 was dead therefore his spirit could not
43:35 have dominion over his soul and his body
43:39 any longer rather his mind his
43:45 unredeemed - unrenewed mine his own will
43:49 his own emotions his own body started to
43:54 tell them what to do and where to go and
43:56 how to live I'm doing a real like
44:01 exaggeration of that so you can get the
44:04 picture of what happened through your
44:07 natural birth you were born into Adam's
44:10 family your spirit man when you were
44:14 born was devoid of the life of God so
44:18 you're raised under the leadership of
44:20 your soul and your body unredeemed mind
44:25 will and emotions and your unredeemed
44:28 body Roman numeral D Christ restored
44:33 mankind's ability to walk by the spirit
44:35 when you are born again your spirit man
44:39 we theme Jesus Christ into your heart it
44:43 says the fullness of the God had dwelt
44:45 in Jesus in bodily form and you now are
44:48 complete so this now is representing
44:50 your spirit man is a born-again believer
44:53 you have the Holy Spirit inside of your
44:57 spirit you have all the power you have
45:01 the power source living within you but
45:04 you got to stay connected to it and
45:07 that's true faith when you get
45:10 disconnected by disappointments and
45:13 failures and things like that then you
45:17 become disconnected to the one who loves
45:20 you to his loving-kindness and tender
45:22 mercies okay
45:26 you're reborn spirit now is to have
45:28 dominion over your flesh over your soul
45:33 and over your body you're reborn spirit
45:37 is to be dominant in your
45:39 decision-making and your thought
45:42 prescient processes in order for this to
45:45 happen you need to retrain yourself to
45:49 walk by the spirit and not by the flesh
45:53 this is representing your unredeemed
45:56 soul mind will and emotions okay now
46:02 your emotions and your will will usually
46:04 follow whatever you are thinking that's
46:08 why God tells us in Romans 12:2 not
46:11 while he says in 1 don't be conformed to
46:14 this world but be transformed by the
46:17 renewing of your mind so you can prove
46:19 what is the good and perfect will of God
46:25 so right here this represents if I
46:32 actually sat in this chair like this
46:35 this rep the cross represents Jesus
46:39 Christ the veil represents that you are
46:41 covered with the blood of Jesus Christ
46:44 under his protection and you can draw
46:47 power from this for your spirit soul and
46:51 body
46:52 this white cloth represents the purity
46:56 in the holiness that is for your spirit
47:00 man this is where you want to like have
47:06 your life emanate from now your soul and
47:11 your body are still being sanctified so
47:16 there's some of the areas of your soul
47:19 and body that need to be brought into
47:21 perfect union and fellowship with God
47:25 and you do that through the renewal of
47:28 your mind and through allowing the Holy
47:30 Spirit who is living in your spirit to
47:33 rule over you and the more you follow
47:35 God's leadership follow the Holy Spirit
47:40 the more your soul will experience the
47:44 fullness of the redemption and the
47:47 habits that you had will start you know
47:50 falling away you won't have the taste
47:52 for the things that you used to have the
47:54 taste for is that good okay Roman
48:04 numeral seven crowned with
48:06 loving-kindness and tender mercies one
48:09 of the best ways to walk in God's
48:11 Redemption for your front in your life
48:13 from the pit of destruction is by
48:16 remembering to but to wear the crown of
48:21 his loving-kindness and tender mercies
48:24 that Jesus Christ purchased for you by
48:27 his own precious blood
48:29 now I shared this in my blog last night
48:32 I don't know if how many read that when
48:35 I was very young was probably like five
48:37 years of age I remember sitting on a
48:39 throne like I was showing there as a
48:42 queen and it was in King Arthur's castle
48:45 and it took place in a place called
48:48 fairytale town that's actually there
48:51 still there in Sacramento so my parents
48:54 paid the price and I was granted the
48:56 privilege of experiencing how it was
49:00 like to be a queen for the day sitting
49:03 on the royal throne and wearing the
49:05 royal crown now that was a fairy tale
49:08 but now I wear a real crown you can't
49:13 see it it's invisible to the naked eye
49:17 you wear that crown as a born-again
49:19 believer it's the crown of God's
49:24 loving-kindness and tender mercies your
49:29 heavenly father paid for this beautiful
49:33 crown you wear through the precious
49:37 blood of His Son Jesus Christ at the
49:40 cross King Jesus took off his invisible
49:46 crown
49:47 of glory and honor and he did it for a
49:52 purpose he did it so that you could one
49:57 day which is today where this crown of
50:02 glory and honor what did he allow to
50:07 happen to him
50:08 he allowed a crown of thorns to be
50:13 weaved a despicable crown a horrible
50:16 crown to be placed on his head as the
50:21 Roman soldiers then mocked him and said
50:24 they bowed their knees and they mocked
50:27 him it says and they said hail King of
50:29 the Jews they were mocking him Jesus
50:34 bore this excruciatingly painful crown
50:39 for you and I the crown of thorns it
50:48 belong to you and I now you have seen
50:51 the crown of thorns placed on Jesus's
50:53 head do you realize that's what you wore
50:57 before he became a Christian your mind
51:01 was pierced with negative terrible
51:04 thoughts it was a crown that was passed
51:08 from generation to generation all the
51:12 way back to Adam and Eve when the earth
51:15 was cursed for their sin bringing forth
51:19 thorns and thistles Genesis 3:17 through
51:24 18 unknowingly the Roman soldiers took
51:29 the thorns symbolizing the curse and
51:33 made it into a crown for King Jesus on
51:37 the cross King Jesus willingly bore the
51:41 crown of thorns the curse pronounced by
51:45 the law for our sin so that we could be
51:49 redeemed from the curse and be crowned
51:53 with his loving-kindness and tender
51:56 mercies the key that unlocks
52:00 I wanted to say this magical but it's
52:02 not magical this great exchange is
52:06 believing in this great truth of what
52:08 King Jesus has done for the world for
52:12 you and I through the cross as you wear
52:16 this royal crown filled with heavenly
52:19 gems allow your soul and all that is
52:23 within you every thought imagination
52:25 every emotion past present and future to
52:30 be shaped by God's great love for you
52:33 the great price Jesus Christ paid for
52:38 you to be able to wear this crown every
52:41 morning as she wake up recall who Jesus
52:45 Christ is who God is what Christ has
52:48 done for you living in the hope that is
52:52 beyond all natural hope when you look
52:55 into the mirror see the crown upon your
52:58 head and then go out into the world
53:01 ruling and reigning over sin sickness
53:05 and all forms of destruction justice
53:09 King Jesus did while he walked on this
53:13 earth and as he now rules and as in
53:18 heaven as the king of kings and the Lord
53:22 of lords and one day he will return to
53:26 earth and rule over all let's pray
53:32 father I thank you for this message
53:34 tonight we thank you Lord God that you
53:38 have delivered us from the pit of
53:40 destruction and you have crowned our
53:43 lives with your loving-kindness and
53:45 tender mercies strengthen each person
53:49 here Lord to walk with a conscious
53:52 awareness of the crown of glory that you
53:54 have placed on their head and remember
53:57 the great price you paid and father I
54:00 pray that you would strengthen us to
54:02 walk by your spirit and not by the flesh
54:07 to walk by the holy spirit and not by
54:12 our unredeemed soul
54:14 our unredeemed mine will and emotions we
54:18 praise you Lord we bless you we thank
54:21 you in Jesus's name Amen
