KENNETH: Hello everybody. We’re
Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, and welcome to Two Days After
Christmas. Amen. Oh my, haven’t we had a good time this week?
CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: Hasn’t it just been delicious,
the insight into the word and… surrounding the birth of Jesus
and then what it means to us today. You know Jesus said, “If
you continue in my word, you’ll be my disciples, indeed. And
you will know the truth and the truth will make you free.”
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: And the more you know about that
birth, the more you know about his life. And the more you know
about his life, the more then that we can walk in the light
of that life. We are supposed to be, according to the New
Testament, we are supposed to be… We are in this world as He
is. As he is, so are we in this world. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: We are supposed to act like him. We are supposed to
talk like him. We’re supposed to think like him. He’s the
example. And as I said earlier, Bill Winston, glory to God, and
he said he’s the sample. Well, a sample you can taste it, you can
take a taste of it and see that it’s good. He is the example.
He’s the sample. He’s a man that was helpless to do anything
without the anointing. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: And
The anointing came on him as he came up out of the water being
baptized with water. Then he was baptized with the Holy ghost.
And the and the prophet John Saw, the Holy spirit land on
him the way a dove would land on something. He saw the spirit of
God land on him. Glory to God. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
That still just gives me a thrill, because I remember the
day he landed on us, just two little scriptural illiterates,
you know, over in the state of Arkansas. We got born again six
months after we got married. We were already just so in love
with one another. And then we fell in love with Jesus and
everything changed and praise God. And gave us this marvelous,
wonderful life that we’ve lived together for 57 years. And we
just, because of him, because of Jesus and because of his
word, that we’ve lived 57 years without fussing and fighting.
Now that first six months, with me. But this woman taught me how
to love and she taught me how to live, glory to God. And she just
never would enter into the fuss. Praise God. And we haven’t
had cross words. We haven’t had cross, I don’t remember the
last time. GLORIA: It’s true. KENNETH: Amen. I don’t believe
that. Well, that’s your problem. Anyway, glory to God. GLORIA:
It’s the truth. KENNETH: It is the truth. Now, we’ve talked
about, yesterday we’re talking about it’s the intercessors.
It’s the prayers, God revealing. And it’s that way today. And
there’s not a few of us today. There’s not just two like there
was, you know, Anna and Simeon. But they knew, and the spirit of
God even led them to the temple that day, led them into that
room that day. The prayers knew who he was. GLORIA: Praise God.
KENNETH: Oh, glory to God. Now, let’s go again back into the
second chapter of the book of Luke. And we’ll read that
37th verse about Anna. She was a widow of about four score and
four years. She was a widow of 84 years, which, and the 36th
verse said she’d live with her husband seven years, so she’s
91 years old. She coming in that instant, gave thanks likewise
under the Lord and spoke of him to all that looked for
redemption in Jerusalem. And when they had performed all
things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into
Galilee to their own city, Nazareth. And the child grew and
waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom. And the grace
of God was upon him. Now his parents went to Jerusalem
every year at the feast of the Passover. Glory to God. And when
he was 12 years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom
of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days as they
returned the child, Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem, and
Joseph and his mother knew not of it. They trusted him.
Amen. They never had one second problem out of him at all. He’s
12 years old. They supposing him to have been in the company when
a day’s journey and they sought him among their kin folks and
acquaintance. Do you ever wonder where he spent the night? In the
temple. Amen. Does that remind you of Samuel? It should. Amen.
He’s talking to the priest. And so he just someone, he spent the
night with them. Now, when they found him not, they turned back
again to Jerusalem and it came to pass that after three days,
one day out, one day back, three days hunting, he matched five
days. That’s almost a full week. He’s there in that temple. He
is there in the presence of his father and he is there like
Samuel of old. They found him sitting in the midst of the
doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions and all
that heard him we’re astonished at his understanding and
answers. And when they saw him, they were amazed and his mother
said to him, “Son, why has thou thus dealt root with us? Behold,
thy father and I have sought after the sorrowing.” They’re
worried about him. I mean, they’ve been looking for this
boy for a week. And he said unto them, “How is it that you were
looking for me? Know you not that I must be about my father’s
business.” They should have gone to the temple first, the first
day and found him. What kept them from it? Worry. They began
to say all kinds of things. Well, they maybe hurt him,
somebody might have killed him. They didn’t know what you and I
know. They should have, because of the words that had been
spoken, but they don’t live every day thinking about, had
been 12 years since those things were spoken unto them. And she
pondered them, kept them in her heart. What they do in life,
they’re doing business, they’re working every day. He’s just a
little old boy. He’s not even working in the carpenter shop
yet. They’re just living life. Amen. And he’s just like every
other little 12 year old boy running and playing and having
a big time and falling down and having to get back up again
and all that and he just being a boy. Don’t you know he’s all
boy, come in dirty. You know, his mama got to clean him up and
praise God. Thank you Jesus. So they really should have gone
right straight to that temple. You know, I bet he’s in the
temple. GLORIA: You know how he is. KENNETH: You know how he is.
You know, all he wants to talk about is God. An on Sabbath,
when we go to synagogue, I mean he just doesn’t even want to
leave synagogue, I bet you he’s there in that temple, let’s go
there and see if we can find him. Amen. So they understood,
not the saying, which he spake unto them. And he went down with
them and came to Nazareth and was subject to them, but his
mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Jesus increased
in wisdom. You notice wisdom is first? Wisdom is the principle
thing. He increased in wisdom and stature. He growing up like
everybody else. Amen. And in favor with God and man,
except for his brothers and his sisters. Now how would you like
to be Jesus’ little brother? Especially the one born just
right after him, almost the same age. Why can’t you be like
Jesus? Why can’t you do what Jesus does? Jesus would never
have done that. Would you get up from there? Don’t you know Jesus
wouldn’t? So, you know he’s being compared all these
years, but we can’t forget that everything he did, he did it by
faith. It wasn’t easy on him. Every temptation that his
brother’s had, he had the same, only it was at least twice as
hard on him as it was on them. The temptation. He knew who he
was. He found himself in the book of Isaiah. He knew
what he was called to do. The temptation. He knew where
healing was in the Torah. He knew where healing was in the
prophets. He knew where healing was. He knew all of that. You
notice he settled in the book of Isaiah because he was in Isaiah
53, he was in Isaiah 10 that we read last Monday about the
anointing destroying the yoke. He was in Isaiah chapter, in
fact, let’s look at the 11th chapter of Isaiah. He found
himself in these places. In Isaiah 10, the 27th verse, it
shall come to pass in that day that his, the devil’s burden
shall be taken away from off the shoulder and his yoke from off
of thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the
anointing. Now, some other translations, and it’s
translated fat or oil, referring to the anointing, but it’s the
same thing. And I know in the Spanish Bible, it’s translated
fat. Well, when you look it up, then you look it up in Spanish,
it’s referring to oil. The anointing oil, and the yoke
shall be destroyed because of the anointing. All right,
look in this 11th chapter. There shall come forth a rod out of
the stem of Jesse. So, that’s Jesus. Who’s Jesse? David’s-
CONGREGATION: Father. KENNETH: Father. Oh yeah. Now you’re
getting there. And a branch shall grow out of his roots.
Who is that? That’s us. He’s the vine. GLORIA: We’re the
branches. KENNETH: We’re the branches. CONGREGATION:
Hallelujah. KENNETH: We done hit pay dirt again today. And the
spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him. Now, didn’t we read
that in Luke chapter four the spirit of the Lord is upon me
because he’s anointed me to preach. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him. The
spirit of wisdom, the spirit of understanding, the spirit of
counsel, the spirit of might, the spirit of knowledge, the
spirit of the fear of the Lord and shall make him of quick
understanding in the fear or in the reverence of our God.
Hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. GLORIA: Praise God.
KENNETH: Well now you come over to Colossians chapter one verse
nine, and the Apostle Paul said, now let’s turn over there. I can
quote that to you, but I want you to see it, I once you put
your own eyes on it. This is one of the scriptures that you’ll
find at the bottom of my partner letter. The Apostle Paul desired
it and so do I. Colossians chapter one verse nine, I’ve got
it framed in red ink. For this cause, we also, since the day we
heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to desire that you
might be filled, say filled. CONGREGATION: Filled. KENNETH:
Filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom, there it is
again. What wisdom? The wisdom of God. All wisdom and spiritual
understanding. That’s the anointing to understand the
word. Somebody shout amen, glory to God. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: And it’s because he did what he did and he’s doing what
he’s doing. He is a man, a born again, Holy ghost baptized,
hallelujah, man. Glorified man. He said, “Handle me. A spirit
hath not flesh and bone as you see me have no blood.” All of
his blood is in heaven in the heavenly mercy seat. Not little
drops of it. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: How
could that possibly be? It isn’t possibly be. It’s supernaturally
done. Amen, I don’t care if it wasn’t but one drop, that’s more
powerful than any drop of blood in existence. Amen.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Hallelujah. Glory be to Jesus.
Look what we have. Thank you, oh yeah. Thank you Jesus. Go back
to the book of Ephesians chapter three verse 14, for this cause,
I bow my knees under the father, say father. CONGREGATION:
Father. KENNETH: Of our Lord Jesus Christ. Of whom? Of the
father, the whole family of El Shaddai. The father, who’s more
than enough. Hallelujah. We’re named after him. CONGREGATION:
Hallelujah. KENNETH: Whoa. That he would grant you granted
Jesus, according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened
with might by his spirit in the inner man, that Christ the
anointed one in his anointing may dwell in your heart by
faith, that you being rooted and grounded in love may be able
to comprehend, have working knowledge with all the saints.
What is the breadth and length and depth and height. And to
know, to intimately know the love of Christ, which passes
knowledge that you might be filled with the all, all, all,
CONGREGATION: All. KENNETH: I said all. CONGREGATION: All.
KENNETH: Do a word study on all. A-L-L, it means all, in every
language in the world. All means all. CONGREGATION: Amen.
Hallelujah. KENNETH: Might be filled with all the fullness of
God now under him that is able to do exceeding abundantly be
above all that we ask or think, according to the power that work
of the Venice under him be glory in the church by Christ
Jesus throughout all ages, world without end, amen. CONGREGATION:
Amen. KENNETH: Now there, he said they that believe on me,
the work shall I do and greater works than these shall he do
because I go to my father. And a lot of comment about that. There
is the greater works. There’s the greater works. Beyond what
we can ask or think. It’s in us now. CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH:
The savior himself. I’m going to tell you something. God is in
heaven. Jesus is in heaven. The Holy ghost is here in us right
now. And this is just as much a manifestation in the earth as
the father, the son, and the Holy ghost.
KENNETH: And we’re out of time. AVERY JACKSON: I’m Avery
Jackson, and this is my wife Andrea Jackosn. So in terms of
how I grew up, it was really quite interesting. And some
people might say that it was a difficult or challenging, but
for me everything was, was about exploring. And so my, I’ve
always had a positive attitude. So as a youngster, my mom and
dad divorced when I was about five. My grandmother had a
stroke and when she had a stroke, you know, I asked the
Lord, I said, Lord, how can I help people who have brain
problems like my grandma? And he told me, I want you to be a
neurosurgeon. And he literally said, neurosurgeon at second
grade at eight, the age of eight, I didn’t know what a
neurosurgeon was. So I looked it up and then I said, Oh, brain
surgeon, spine surgeon, great, I’ll do it Lord. And then that
was it. And I would tell my teachers, and I was
enthusiastic, yes, I’m going to be a neurosurgeon. And they look
at me and they’d be like, really? I said, no, really? So I
went through high school and went to the university of
Chicago undergrad. And then from there I went to Wayne state in
Detroit for medical school. Then I went to Northwestern for my
general surgery and then now being at Penn state for my
neurosurgery residents. And so that allowed me then to go on to
have this complex spine fellowship. And I was in
practice after that for a year in Virginia and then ultimately
in the Michigan area. And I’ve been there now for almost 20
years in private practice. And when I’m in the operating room,
I have the mind of Christ and I have the peace of the Holy
spirit that will come over me as I’m operating right. And so when
I’m operating, I’m in scripture and I can feel the peace of God
with me when I’m operating 10,000 surgeries and 100,000
patients. So the research that I’ve done regarding laughter and
how that affects the body really began when my pastor, Bishop
Keith Butler, Word of faith international Christian center
laid hands on me. March 22nd, 2015 he did that. He said, your
hands will be used to help people with problems that
there’s no answers for. As soon as that happened, I go home and
I get this huge download from the Holy spirit. And it was
constant. So during that process he talked about how important
laughter and the joy of the Lord is, whether you feel like it or
not, it just affects your master gland, which is your
hypothalamus. And from there we’ll have a cascade which will
affect all 3.7 trillion cells in your body. You know, I hear some
of the conversations that people are having about their faith
because they do or don’t do something as it relates to
medicine. And, uh, and my advice would be my children know my
voice and the voice of a stranger they won’t follow.
Right? So as we spend time with the Holy spirit, personal time,
and we ask him for his advice that he may suggest that you go
here and you see this position or you do this or that or the
other or not. But I think really the key answer is, um, what does
he say for our individual treatment and care for whatever
issue we may, we may run into, we are a spirit being, we have a
soul, which is our mind, our will and our emotion. And we
live in a physical body and that’s including our brain. You
have all three parts. And in, in, in conventional medicine we
tend to focus on the third part, which is the physical body. And
we’ve made some headway over the years clearly. But when you
don’t address the soul; mind, will, emotion, you don’t address
the spirit, you’re missing two thirds of the answer. And so
what we have to do going forward is we really have to address all
three. And that’s why I’m so excited about KCM and what
they’re doing because Brother Copeland has, has taken an
approach where he is addressing all three parts of who we are
and now we’re, we’re conscious and aware of how to handle those
through the word and not dichotomize the word from
science, but to say this is God’s language. And when we use
have God’s mind and we use his perspective on these issues, and
we choose life with our soul, we will have positive impact in
our, in our physical bodies. Kenneth and Gloria Copeland,
they are so precious to see their love and their dedication
to the Lord as an example, and to see what God has done in
their lives to say he’s no respecter of person. So if he
can do that for them and they can have this worldwide
reach to help people as a physician who loves people,
and I want to be able to give and help, and you
know, there’s no limit and there is clearly
evidence there is no limit. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and
remember Jesus is Lord.
