Kenneth Copeland - Let The WORD Fight Its Own Fight

Well I can tell something about you. You know the truth and the truth making you free. And it'll make you free of things, long time stuff, and things you thought were true turned out not to be true at all, amen.

Father thank You again today. Oh, thank You that You are true. You are the truth and Jesus, You said it. You are not only the truth, but You are the life and the way. And we came to our Father, by You glory to God, Hallelujah. We thank You and bless You for it in Jesus' name, Father, Amen.

Let's go back there and look at that in the eighth chapter of John once more. And I want to center up today on something else that Jesus said, verse 29. "For I always do those things that please him". Now there you are. What does the Spirit of God say through the Apostle Paul in the book of Hebrews, the book written to the Hebrews? "It is impossible to please him without faith. For those that come to him must believe that he is, and that he is the rewarder of those who diligently seek him". Amen. Yes. Diligently seek him, think about this. What did Jesus say? Ask and you shall receive, seek or research and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you: A. S. K. That's the truth, now when you diligent, this is where you do your researching.

I've used this one so much, just so much. Oh, this is the wisdom right here. And he said in verse 37, "I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my Word hath no place in you". What does that mean? You don't believe it, you don't believe what I say. Let's take this truth in Philippians chapter two, verse five. The first time I read this, I had to do what it said. It said, "Let this mind be in you," you have to let it be, "which was also in Christ Jesus".

Now for those that are not all that familiar with this, Christ is not Jesus' name, Christ is anointed, to christen. Messiah, that's the Hebrew word for anointed. Christ is the same word. But that's the Greek word. We talked about this over Christmas, Christ mass. So Christmas is a celebration of the anointed one and his anointing and his birth into this world that fixed it for us. Amen, he fixed it. So but look at this. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Or we have, didn't the same apostle say we have the mind of Christ? So in other words, we have the same anointing available for our minds, that was available to Jesus on his mind. Oh as I know. I do know that, yes, but that's why he came. The chastisement of our peace was upon him. And with his stripes, we were healed. That's what Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would do on the cross. Praise God.

So let this mind be in you. "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:" Now every believer needs to let him die. What? Let him die in your own heart and mind, you see him die and you see him. There's Scripture behind every bit of this. He was manifested in the flesh, but he was made alive in the Spirit, in the pit of hell itself. Let him die there. Let him bear your sins. Let him be made a curse for us. Third chapter of Galatians. Let it happen, completely dead. You cannot, a spirit being according to what the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Thessalonica. God make you whole your whole spirit and soul and body. You can't see me, I am a spirit being, anybody can prove that. I mean, when the spirit's gone the body falls down. Amen. Then they have to go put your bones somewhere.

And I noticed in the first covenant they don't mention your body, they bury the bones because the bones, the body just decays but the bones don't, you know they find skeletons all the time. Amen. So at any rate what I'm bringing out here to let that mind be in you, let him die. Let him go to hell. Let him suffer like no man had ever suffered before. Before or will ever again, and then see him in hell itself and read that first chapter of the Book of Proverbs, because it tells you exactly what happened. And again, he'll be a father to me. And again a son to me, and again I'll be a father to him, let it happen. Then you can do this. "Who, being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal with God".

I do not think it's robbery to be equal with God because I am a joint heir with Christ Jesus, amen. They that are led of the Spirit of God are the sons of God, amen. "But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made", and was made in, "He was made in a form of a servant. in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him", King James says a name. Actually, he gave him his name. "which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, or names in heaven names in earth, and names under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father".

Now it has to bow its knee and a very, very, very close dear friend of mine, he was in this ministry for a while named Hugh Smith, and we flew together. He's the one who taught Gloria how to fly. And just a dear friend. And he was out checking his airplane. And he did not do something that he should have done. And a lot of people don't, I learned it the hard way, and you should before you ever shut one of those, I'm talking about a piston engine airplane and you should while you're still taxiing in, those things are driven by magnetos, that's where you get to the fire for the spark plugs. Turn the switch off and see if that engine dies. Turn it back on, then you know it's working. Had he done that, that engine would not have died. Had he done it to flight before.

Anyway, he just set that up and he's walking around there and he's doing his preflight and when he walked up there and from what he's talking about, the prop was kind of funny angle and he just moved it and it fired and that blade hit him right here and it literally cut his nose off. And he told me, said, "I just fell on the ground, I knew I was dying and I just began to shout, I'm healed glory to God, I'm healed, I'm healed, I'm healed, I'm healed". And he said "I wouldn't get into unconsciousness, but then he...", so anyway, Kay came back to the airport and picked him up, took him to the hospital. Well he called me and so I went over there at that hospital and he's laying up there got this wad of gauze on his face here like this, and it's bleeding, got his nose back over like this. And this is when this scripture became the truth to me. But it just rose up out of my spirit.

And so I went around where his head was, and I put my hand on top of that big pile of gauze. And I said, "'Nose' your name". I said, "You're a name. You bow your knee to the name of Jesus. Now you are a healed nose, you are a good nose, and you'll work well". So then they said, "Well, he needs a plastic surgeon". Okay, so plastic surgeon... Anyway. Had to go to another hospital so we put him in that, Kay had to put him in the car and I was with him and got over there and he's just holding this thing up here like that and he's checking in and I said "Lady, his nose was cut off". What! So she ran in there. Anyway, the plastic surgeon came out, he said, "Now, his cheek bone was broken here, we saw it in the X-ray, that this eye bone was broken here, across here like this, this cheekbone right here. And this is the side of his nose where that propeller came through up here like this". He came out and he said, "Well, I don't know what you call me for".

The plastic surgeon that was going to sew his nose back together. "He didn't need me", he said, "Really all I did I just sewed it up right here. There's nothing wrong with him". And I think Kay asking, "Well, what about those broken bones"? He said, "There's no broken bones". The name, that's the truth. And it was that scripture right there, you have no idea how many times our family has used that over and over and over in a lot of different ways, in a lot of different cases. You use it, you've heard me say this, well I didn't make this up. I had the Lord said this to me one time, very strong in my spirit. Let the Word fight its own fight. So I began to ask him I said, "What are you talking about"? He said, "Well, what about my full armor"?

Turned over there, well you want to turn over there and look at that? Okay, let's go to the book of Ephesians. Just turn left, one book and go to six chapter, verse ten. "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord. And then the power of His might", not your might, "put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places". Or heavenly places. "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth".

Glory! I'm telling you, you cannot exhaust this. I have not yet gone to the Concordance and find how many times the word truth is in there. "Having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;" Which is the power of God. "Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel".

Oh, glory to God. Truth as part of your armor. So truth, let it fight. Let the healing scriptures fight. I've struggled to make it, just confess it 6000 and it'll work. Well, there were times that I did that, but I did it, every one of them in faith. I was under a lot of stress and a lot of pain, and at the time and on top of all that flu symptoms came on me. Well, I was right in the middle of a meeting and, no way, by his stripes I was healed so. Not going cancel the meeting on account of it. But I just got the healing scriptures and just got right over there, by his stripes if I was healed, I am healed. Glory to God, I'm heal now. I was just walking around that hotel room, glory to God, hallelujah. I'm not gonna do this. I'm not having this, no, I'm not having this. I do not have, now you have to be careful with this. I do not "have" the flu. I "have" healing. That's the truth, I have it. If I'll take it, it's in this book. And all the fever symptoms are over there in the curse of the law.

So I'm not going to go with that since Jesus was made a curse for us that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles that we might receive what the Spirit promised through faith. And so I just determined and I walked around that floor, and I just kept confessing it, glory to God, by his stripes I was healed, I was healed, I was healed, I am healed. I do not believe in the flu. I don't believe in it. No, I don't believe in that. I don't believe that, I believe this. And I had it happened so many times and I don't know why, that didn't make a difference, but that I just kept on and just kept on and just kept on and just kept on and just kept on and just kept on.

I wanted to quit so bad. I wanted to go to bed. Just don't quit, just don't quit. Just kept on and kept on and kept on. And it hit me right down above my heels on the back of my legs and came up my back all the way up my back and hit my head and I was healed, all the symptoms left. Went to bed, next morning, fine. But it didn't happen cause I said it over and over again. It happened because I had the scripture on it and believed it over and over and over again. Now, I'll tell you another time. There was another time over another deal. I mean, this thing coming to you and I don't have the money. I don't have the money. I don't have the money. So I just got in a boat and got out in the middle of the leg. Thank God I have the money. Thank God I have the money. Thank God I have the money. Thank God, and the Lord said, "Shut up". I said, "Sir"? He said, "That's not faith. You're saying that out of fear".

Now you see the difference? Jesus said it's not by you saying it. Well I much said that by faith and would not quit until my breakthrough came, the other I was saying by fear, because I didn't see any way that money was going to come. So I stopped right where I was. He said, "You know better than that, roll the care of that over on me". Well, the ministry had ordered a new airplane. At that time I didn't know they made new ones, I thought they were all used. But we ordered a new one. A very, very good friend of mine in the airplane business and I ordered it through him and was able to win him in the Lord in doing so. But I called him I said, "Jack, I don't have all the money". He said, "I don't care. You know, just pay me whenever you want to". I said, "No, I can't do that". I said "Well you know why, I don't borrow money". "Oh, Kenneth", he said, "I'm not afraid of that, in fact the young man is delivering the airplane, he's on his way".

I'm sitting there at my desk and I said, "Well, okay, but I'm going to send him back with it. I'm not going to fly till I pay for it". He didn't like that a bit. So then he came, sitting there at my desk. I said, "Jack, he's here. But I'm sending him back with the airplane because I'm not going to fly that airplane until the ministry has the money to pay for it". So we got in the car and driving him back to the airport. He said, "Would you tell me about that Mr. Copeland"? So I explained the whole thing to him, got to the airport, won him to the Lord, got him baptized in the Holy Spirit, and he went to the mission field, glory to God. Now that's a good testimony. And I might just go ahead and tell you the money just came jumping in there and I didn't have to, I mean, they sent it right back. Praise God. Yes! Hallelujah. Glory to God. Well, we're out of time. We'll be back in a few minutes. Praise God. Thank You, Jesus. Oh, glory to God.
