Kenneth Copeland - The Spirit of Truth Will Show It to You

Hello, everybody. I'm Kenneth Copeland. Welcome again to the Believer's Voice of Victory broadcast. And we're here at Kenneth Copeland Bible College. Isn't that amazing? Kenneth Copeland Bible. But I'm glad. Hallelujah. I get a chance to teach and have somebody sitting there to hear it, that actually wants to hear it. Praise God. Well, I have a desire to fill you with everything I've learned, which not a whole lot, but it, you know, 57 years, like I said earlier, you can stumble up on a few things. No, I had good teachers. And beginning with Oral Roberts and then Kenneth Hagin and T.L. Osborn and T.L. Lowery, and whew, glory to God, over the years. And I cannot leave out my pastor and his wife, the Nichols.

And wonderful thing. When we, of course, I was raised in the Southern Baptist Church, and Gloria was raised in the Church of Christ. And, but we went to, and since Grace Temple is our home church, Brother Nichols baptized Gloria and me and John and Kellie. Praise God. And it stuck. It took. Praise God. Thank You, Jesus. So now we're here once again in that... the most important Passover meal that has ever happened. And the thing that his disciples did, did not understand. They didn't understand it until after they saw him go to the cross. Then, you remember what we read? I will bring to your remembrance. Or have we read that yet? Anyway, it's right there. I will bring to your remembrance everything that I have said to you. And then they saw all of that, and they said, "That's what he said yesterday. And we didn't know it".

So here we are. And 16th chapter, "These things have I spoken unto you, that you should not be offended". Remember in Mark chapter four? Being offended takes no account of a wrong done. That is one of the devil's biggest and most successful tools, is, well, did you hear what they said about me? No, and I don't want to know. And I've had people walk up to me and say, "You know I love Pastor..." I don't want to go any further. Because right here we're going to hear "but". Well, that's a good opportunity to get that but out of the way. Amen. The badge of unbelief is, yeah, but what if? That's what the Bible said. Yeah, I know it says that, but what if? I had a man in a prayer line. And I was younger than this man. But he was standing in my prayer line.

And I walked up there in front of him and started to lay hands on him. The Lord said, "Don't do it". So I said, "Now the Bible says, by his stripes you were healed". "I know it says that". "Are you healed"? "No. I got this..." And I heard the Lord say, "Tell him you never will be. You never will be". I said, "The Bible says by his stripes you were healed". He said, "I know it says that". "Are you healed"? "No. I've got this..." I said, "You never will be". Boy, I could see his boiling place was about to happen. And the Lord said, "Do it one more time". And I did. Went through the same thing, but this time he's pretty mad at me. You know, he's an older man and he knows it says that. I said, "As long as I agree with you, you will never receive your healing". But I said, brother, if you will agree with me, according to Matthew chapter 18, "the two of us agree together, you'll receive your healing". He said, "Brother, lay hands on me".

I mean, I just barely touched him and the power of God knocked him backwards and just literally floored him. And he got up and said, "Oh glory to God. Oh glory to God". He judged the Bible. I know it says that. What should he have said? I know he said that. It's a "it". The Bible is not a it. It is the Word of God. Why is it the Word of God? It is his bond. And I dare say that most Christian people that they believe that, but have really never thought about it in that light. It is the Word. The apostle John said, "In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was God". Thank You, Jesus. It's his Word. You can depend on it. You can depend on it even more than you can depend on a highly trusted friend, a lawyer or a doctor. You can depend on this book. Thank You, Jesus.

Now you have to be careful with some translations of it, but the most of the main line ones are just excellent. My choice is the Classic Amplified. I use it a lot. Well, my staff knows that. And so since Zondervan was done with it, they just put in a request for it and then surprised me when we got it. And right now, in fact, at the time that you're seeing this, we have the leather bound. Amen. Thank You, Jesus. Isn't that good? So if you want a new one, you know where to get it. Thank You, Jesus. Now, let's go down here to the 13th verse. "How be it when he... he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth. For he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak. And he will show you things to come. He will glorify me for he shall receive of mine and show it unto you".

Listen to me, class. No, listen to Jesus. "All things that the Father hath are mine, therefore said I that he shall take of mine and show it unto you". All of the wisdom, all of the knowledge, all of the spiritual power, he'll show it to you, when you inquire of him, One of the marks of King David, he didn't do anything without inquiring of the Lord, and that's one of the reasons he's a man after God's own heart. He used his covenant, he used it on purpose. When he came up against Goliath, he was under 20 years old. 20 years old he would have been in the army. Well, his father, Jesse sent him to check on, sent some food, and he came up there and saw his size. We heard him stand out there and roar.

Think about it now. This is a young boy who said, "What do I get if I kill him"? Well, you get the king's daughter, and your family's exempt from taxes. And he just kept saying that. And that's when they finally took him in the presence of King's Saul. And he's, and I'm paraphrasing now, he said, "He is a warrior from his youth, and you're but a young lad". Listen to what he said. "I was keeping my father's sheep, and a bear came out and took up one of my father's sheep. I killed him. A lion came out, took up one of my father's sheep. I killed him. And that uncircumcised Philistine doesn't have any more authority over me than that lion and that bear". King Saul, all of his brothers, and every man in that army had all been circumcised on the eighth day, because that's what God commanded Abraham and his family to do. He said, "I'll kill him. He does not have a chance against me".

So he picked up five smooth rocks, put them in his shepherd's bag, put one in that sling. Now, I don't know whether any of you have ever used a sling shot or not. That's fun, isn't it? And the longer that thing is, I'll tell you, it's like a rifle bullet. And you take one part of it, wrap it around your finger, and a knot in the other end, and you put the thing in there, and turn that one loose, and you practice with it long enough, I mean, you can hit with it. But he added more to that. He said, "You curse me by your gods, but I come at you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the angelic armies of God". That was a dead man right there. He could go no further, because David knew his covenant, and he ran towards him.

Now, none of this Hollywood stuff. He ran. He was running towards him. You can run towards your giant, too. You put that Word in your mouth. He was running towards him, and I mean, he cut loose with that and hit him right here, just sunk into his forehead. The only unprotected, that helmet covered everything else but that, and he fell, and he took his sword and cut his head off. Now, one translation said, "He killed him with the rock and finished him off with that sword". I like that. He finished him off, picked up his big old head, and started running with it. Think about it. Put that in your mind. I mean, just blood and hair, and eyeballs all over the place. Blood running down his arm, swinging that head. It scared those Philistines. I won't go any further with that. In private sometime, I'll talk to you about it.

The Lord asked me, who made David king? Well, Samuel's the one. I said, "Samuel". He said, "No, Goliath". All of Israel knew him and would follow him. He's a man of the covenant. Glory to God. Never lost a battle and never got wounded. Thank You, Jesus. Now, let's look at this again. Now, all of this, "Howbeit when the Spirit of truth is come," when did he come? On the day of Pentecost, which was 50 days after the cross. "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth. For he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak". He will. "And he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine. Therefore said I, that he would take of mine and show it unto you". How? Out of that book, out of that blood covenant book, that's him. Hallelujah. That book is him. Thank You, Jesus.

Oh, praise God now. "He will take what's mine and he will show it unto you". Now, and you know the story of this. The man called blind, Bartimaeus, do you remember what he said? Son of David. He knew who he was. Now, he said, "Have mercy on me". No. Now he's a Jew. Son of David, do hesed for me. Chesed, that covenant word that the less is blessed of the greater on an equal basis. Well, it's a word that God used. And that's literally what he said. Well, his surrounding, they had let that slip. It didn't mean anything to them. They tried to get him to shut up. But he said, "Jesus, stop".

Well, of course he did. He said those two covenant words, "Son of David, do hesed for me". He stopped and called him. He'll do the same thing for you. That's what I'm talking about. He'll take the things of mine and show it unto you. So, now can you see Bartimaeus? He discarded his garment. That was his act of faith. Now, in those days, it's no different than today. I mean, some people could fake blindness and, but you had to go to the priest and prove. You had to go for leprosy, blindness, and those kind of things. And they made sure that he was actually blind. And he had a beggar's coat on. And he just started toward Jesus and dumped that coat.

Well, how do you think he found him? He heard him. Amen. But now this is what Jesus said. I'm paraphrasing. He said, "Bartimaeus, what do you want me to do for you"? He's no different. What do you want me to do for you? "Lord, he called him Lord, that I might receive my sight". He said, "Go your way, your faith has made you whole". What faith was it? He took off that beggar's garment before he even took a step. I'm not going to need this anymore. I'm not going to need this. And it says, immediately he received his sight and followed him in the way. Well, of course he did. Amen. Isn't that wonderful?

So he hasn't changed. The book hasn't changed. Thank You, Jesus. Okay, go over there to the book of Hebrews for a moment. Don't lose your place here. It's in the fourth chapter of the book of Hebrews. And the 12th verse, "For the Word of God is quick and powerful..." It's alive, powerful. "Sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and the marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight". The Word of God, his. The Word of God, he. This is him. This Word is him. Praise God.

So, I'll tell you what, let's do... How much time we got? Not any. "God is not a man that he should lie, neither the son of man that he should repent. Had he not said, and will he not do it? Or had he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I received commandment to bless, and he blessed, and I can't reverse it". That's Numbers 23. Well, Jesus, the son of man, didn't have to repent, but he taught us to. Well, you're not going to be busy tomorrow, are you? Okay, we'll be back in just a moment.
