Release Your Faith by Renewing Your Inward ManOtis Rodgers November 19, 2019 9 Comments
KENNETH: Let’s go to 2
Corinthians chapter 4, 2 Corinthians chapter 4, and let’s
look at the 13th verse. “We, having the same
spirit of faith, according as it is written, ‘I
believed and therefore have I spoken’, we also believe and
therefore we speak.” Verse 16. “For which cause we faint not,
but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is
renewed day by day.” The inward man is renewed day by day. I
wanted you to see this inward man. So if we’re walking by
faith and we don’t let political stuff get us all disturbed and
keep this inner man from being all torn up, I don’t care
whether it’s family problems or what it is, forgive.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Forgive. Walk away from it.
Forgive, if you have aught against any. Has absolutely
nothing to do with the way you feel, but learn then, to take
command over your feelings- CONGREGATION: Yes. That’s right.
KENNETH: And say, “I receive.” Brother Hagin would say, “I feel
good. I feel fine. Body, you get in line. Particularly if you
just got all disturbed over something somebody said, just
get out of there. Get completely, soft answer turns
away wrath. Just get out of there. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: Get away from there, it’ll kill you. Amen.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: And you need to stay happy.
CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: You need to stay on God’s side of
everything. CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: Praise God.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Always ready to see the best and
believe the best from everybody. CONGREGATION: Yes. Amen.
KENNETH: Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: “Brother
Copeland, you don’t know what they did to me.” No, I don’t,
but I know what Jesus did for you. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: He put a heart of love on the inside of you. He shed
his love abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:5.
He’s in there, the love of God Himself is in there, and greater
is He that’s in you than he that’s in the world, so believe
that love, believe it, and begin to walk in it. Hallelujah.
CONGREGATION: Yes. Hallelujah. KENNETH: And know the goodness
of God. Praise God. Now then, let’s go, we’re talking about
faith, how it’s released. Let’s go to Mark chapter 5, Mark 5.
And let’s begin reading concerning the woman that was
healed from the issue of blood in verse 25. No, I’ll tell you
what, let’s go back to the 21st verse. “Jesus was passed over
again by ship unto the other side. Much people gathered unto
Him, and he was nigh unto the sea.” Verse 22, “Behold, there
cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and
when he saw Him, he fell at His feet and besought Him greatly,
saying, ‘My little daughter lieth at the point of death. I
pray Thee, come and lay Thy hands on her that she may be
healed and she shall live.’ And Jesus went with him.” He didn’t
say anything to him, he just went with him. Jairus fell at
His feet. He made his faith statement. “She shall live.”
Jesus went with him. Much people followed Him and thronged Him,
and a certain woman which had an issue of blood 12 years and had
suffered many things of many physicians, had spent all that
she had, was nothing bettered but rather grew worse, when she
had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind and touched His
garment, for she said…” Now remember, Jesus said, “Believe
it in your heart and say it with your mouth.” That is the first
fundamental of faith. Believe it in your heart and say it with
your mouth. CONGREGATION: Yeah. Amen. KENNETH: What’s the
second? Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Romans 10:17, right? All right. So we know she heard the Word.
How do we know that? Because faith came. The Spirit of God
didn’t see fit to tell us how she heard it, but she’s a
shut-in. Now she’s been messed with this thing for 12 years,
and the woman’s bleeding to death. She’s a shut-in, it’s
against Levitical law for her to be out in public with this issue
of blood. She could be stoned for that. “If I may touch but
His clothes, I will be whole. And straightway the fountain of
her blood was dried up.” She felt in her body that she was
healed of that plague. Now let’s back up. I want to go
back down into that again. Suffered many things of many
physicians, many, many physicians. So we know she
forgave the physicians. CONGREGATION: Aww. That’s good.
KENNETH: Many physicians. Cost her everything she had and she
wasn’t any better, she was worse. So she had to believe God
to overcome what they had done to her body. Well, it’s obvious
she forgave the physicians, and it’s obvious she heard the Word.
Now she had somebody relaying stuff in there. Now here’s what
you have to remember. You can lose sight of things. The whole
18th chapter of Matthew when he talk about if any two of you on
earth shall agree as touching anything that they shall ask, go
back and read that carefully, not just the 18th chapter.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Now later, right here in the book
of Mark. He was in the house when they broke up the
rooftops. Now since the Lord didn’t tell us, but the Bible
said, “He saw their faith”, you know, four crazy friends and the
man, the man, after all. They had to carry him up on that
roof. I’ll tell you, there’s a whole lot more in this book if
you’ll go at it in faith and a loving heart, and let Him teach
you and let Him train you from it. Glory to God, thank you,
Jesus. I think He’s the one that said, “All right guys, now
listen. I’m not going to give up. No, uh-uh.” What do you
think about that, Kate? He said, “I’m not going to let you give
up. I’m not going to let you give up.” You think you could
get me up on that roof? “I don’t care if you’re tearing that roof
up, it’s his, he won’t care. Just get me down there in front.
Don’t you drop me off there.” They said, “Okay, Charlie, you
came.” “Yeah, get me up there right now before I quit here.”
Okay. Oh, God help me. Oh, God help me. But they did it.
CONGREGATION: Yeah, right. KENNETH: Jesus. “Cheer up, boy.”
That’s what He said, “Cheer up. Your sins are forgiven you.” Oh,
who can do that but God? But when he got up and went home,
they said, “I guess He can.” He said, “What is easier to say,
‘Your sins be forgiven you’ or ‘Rise, take up your bed and go
home?'” CONGREGATION: Amen. Amen. Yes. Yes. KENNETH: But you
know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins.
He said to the man sick of the palsy, “Rise, take up your bed
and go home.” CONGREGATION: Yeah. KENNETH: Are you listening
to me? CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: It’s the same power
that heals, that forgives. It’s the same power that forgives,
that heals. Now that’s insight into why demanded that we
forgive. CONGREGATION: That’s good. KENNETH: That’s healing
power. That’s healing power. And if you won’t forgive, you can’t
receive healing because you’re rejecting the power that heals
because you’re rejecting the power that forgives. It’s all
the same thing. Amen goes right there. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: Praise God goes right there. CONGREGATION: Praise God.
KENNETH: Some of y’all help me here. These white people don’t
know what to do. You supposed to be praising God. You’re supposed
to be shouting, “Amen.” CONGREGATION: Amen! KENNETH:
Hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Hallelujah.
CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: I said, hallelujah.
CONGREGATION: Hallelujah! KENNETH: Glory to God.
CONGREGATION: Glory to god. KENNETH: Glory to God.
CONGREGATION: Glory to God! KENNETH: Glory be to God.
CONGREGATION: Glory be to God! KENNETH: Glory be to His name.
CONGREGATION: Glory be to His name! KENNETH: She said it, and
she did it, and she got it. Jairus said it, he did it, and
he got it. Jesus, glory to God, Jesus immediately knowing in
Himself… now notice this. Dunamis had gone out of Him.
That Greek word is power, how God anointed Jesus Christ of
Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and dunamis, dunamis, who went about
doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. Now
notice, “Immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out
of Him, turned about in the press and said, ‘Who touched My
clothes?’ The disciple said unto Him, ‘You see the multitude
thronging, and sayest Thou, “Who touched Me?”‘” “He looked around
about her that had done this thing. The woman, fearing and
trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down
before Him and told Him all the truth, and He said unto her,
‘Daughter, your faith hath made thee whole. Go in peace and be
whole.'” That meant her finances. That meant not only
was her body healed, she immediately started gaining
weight. Her prosperity angels were out there working to get
back everything that that disease had cost her. She’s made
whole, she’s made whole, she’s made whole!” CONGREGATION: Yes!
KENNETH: Glory to God, she’s made whole, I said! Thank you,
Lord Jesus, made whole. Her faith did it. We know it was
dunamis power coming out of Him. It was anointing coming out of
Him. He never said anything about His anointing, her faith
is the thing that connected with that anointing and pulled it out
of Him. CONGREGATION: Yes, yes. KENNETH: Her faith did it. Not
one time, not in all the book of Acts, not in all the New
Testament, not one time did Jesus, not one time did one
apostle, not one time did any of them ever say, “My anointing is
what healed you.” No, these men knew they were apostles. Your
faith did it. Now notice, she was aware of that power going in
her body. Straightway, the fountain of her blood was dried
up and then she felt in her body that she was healed of that
plague. She didn’t feel it and then believe it. She’d have
still been in the house if she’d have waited for that, and died
in there. Believing if she could just touch the hem of his
garment, I’ll be made whole, believing that, believing with
all of her heart. But she could have said because, see, had she
not acted on it, faith has to have corresponding action. Faith
has to have action to go with it or it’s dead, it’s just dead
faith. “I know if I could touch His garment I could be made
whole. I know I would, but look at me, I’m skin and bones. I’m
laying here on the floor bleeding now. I can’t go out
there, Jairus is right there, he’s the leader of the
synagogue. I used to go to that synagogue. I can’t go over there
anymore with this blood, and they’ll stone me if they catch
me out there.” KENNETH: No, she said, she’d have died right
there in that room. CONGREGATION: Come on. KENNETH:
No, she said, “I’m going out there.” So she’s going to sneak
out there. “There won’t nobody to see me. Maybe Jairus won’t
even know I’m there. I’ll get my healing and I’ll get my health
back and I’ll go to synagogue and I’ll say, ‘I’m here.'” But
it didn’t work like that. CONGREGATION: Right. KENNETH:
Jesus said, “Uh-oh, somebody touched Me. I believe it was the
hand of the Lord. Somebody touched my clothes. Who did
that?” She said, “Me.” Jairus is standing there thinking, “Come
on. Oh, we got to go here, Boss, come on. Help my baby, my baby.
Come on, come on, come on, come on.” But he never said anything.
Don’t you know it thrilled him when he said, “Daughter”? Jesus
called her daughter, and it’s Jairus’ daughter. And even, He
just started heading back on over to Jairus’ place and if you
just take some time to do some study, Jesus’ home was right
there next to the synagogue, and the blind guys followed Him
right out of Jairus’ house right next door to His house and went
right on in His house without even asking, because everybody
did that. So He got them in there and got them out
of the crowd. Said, “You believe I can do that?” They said, “Yea,
Lord.” “Be it done unto you as you have believed.” They got
their sight back. Isn’t it wonderful? CONGREGATION: Yes.
KENNETH: But now right in the middle of all of that, the death
messenger came. Read it in the eighth chapter of the book of
Luke sometime. Oh, man. They came up and said, “Your little
daughter is dead. Why trouble the Master any longer?” Jairus
had already said all he’s going to say. He said his faith. But
you notice, now remember, faith comes by hearing and hearing by
the Word of God. Every word that Jesus said brought faith. Every
word He said brought faith. He didn’t even let Jairus answer
them. I mean, they were crammed in there together. He didn’t
even let Jairus answer him. He said, “Stop the fear. Believe
only, and she’ll be made whole.” CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: How
did he deal with death? He dealt with fear. CONGREGATION: Right.
Amen. Right. KENNETH: Stop the fear. Believe only, she will be
made whole. CONGREGATION: Yeah. KENNETH: I’m talking to you
today. I’m talking to you tonight. CONGREGATION: Glory to
God. KENNETH: Stop the fear. Believe only, you will be made
whole. Stop the fear, believe only, you will be made whole.
Glory be to God, stop the fear. Believe only. Your husband will
be made whole. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Stop the
fear, believe only, your wife will be made whole. Stop the
fear, believe only, your child will be made whole.
CONGREGATION: Come on. KENNETH: Stop the fear, believe only,
your marriage will be made whole. I heard it this afternoon
in my prayer time for this meeting, I heard it bold, I
heard it loudly, I heard God say, “Someone is going to be
healed of AIDS in this meeting.” Glory to God, hallelujah. I
don’t know whether it’s here or whether it’s online or on the
network, but I know somebody, maybe more than one somebody is
going to receive healing from that horrible disease. Amen.
CONGREGATION: Amen. Hallelujah. KENNETH: “Yeah, but Brother
Copeland, you just don’t understand, I brought it on
myself.” Well, so what? CONGREGATION: Yeah. KENNETH:
What else did you bring on yourself? God not holding you
responsible for bringing that on yourself, all sickness and all
disease is under the curse. CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: And
we’ve been redeemed from the curse. Jesus was made to be a
curse for us. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Thank you, Lord.
AIDS is not a new disease, it just got a different name.
CONGREGATION: Come on. That’s good. Yeah. KENNETH: No such
thing as a new disease. Glory to God. CONGREGATION: Glory to God.
KENNETH: Are we getting anywhere with the Word? CONGREGATION:
Yes. KENNETH: Hallelujah. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Thank you, Lord
Jesus. Thank you, Lord Jesus. CONGREGATION: Glory to God.
KENNETH: And when He was come in, they saith unto Him, He
said, “Why make ye this ado and weep? The damsel is not dead,
but sleepeth”, and they laughed Him to scorn. “But when He had
put them all out, He taketh the father and mother of the damsel
out…” You have to see this, you have to get it. “And them
that were with Him and entereth in where the damsel was lying,
He took the damsel by the hand and said unto her, ‘Damsel, I
say unto you…'” He used His faith. He believed it in His
heart and He said it with His mouth, and He made a specific
example of using His faith, ‘I say unto you, arise.'”
CONGREGATION: Yeah. Hallelujah. Amen. KENNETH: Now wait a
minute, wait a minute. Jairus said, “Come lay Your hands on
him.” He took the damsel by the hand. He did exactly what Jairus
said. He could have just said it. No, no. He did what Jairus
said. Faith stopped Him in the middle. Faith took Him to his
house, and then faith stopped Him in the middle of the street
and healed that woman. Jairus said, “Come put your hand on
her, and she will live.” Never said another word. Now where did
he get that kind of faith? Well, he’d heard Jesus preach in that
synagogue. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and
remember Jesus is Lord.
